Sogat fined 

and assets 
seized for 
contempt 


By Michael Horsnel) 

Sequestration of the £17 
million assets of the print 
onion Sogat *82 was ordered 
in the High Court yesterday. 

Mr Justice Michael Davies 
made the order after bearing 
that the union had ignored a 
court injunction ordering it 
to halt the blacking of News 
I nternational’s four national 
newspapers by members at 
wholesalers.

accused Mr Murdoch of 
trying to destroy it. 

But she sent a personal 
letter to the court saying 
Sogat intended no discourte- 
sy by its absence or disrepect 
for the law. 

Mr Burton said the four 
newspapers had obtained an 
injunction on January 27 
requiring the union to with- 
draw instructions to mem 
bers to black them. 

The Sogat workers at the 
newspapers were dismissed 
after striking over a c laim for 
lifetime employment, he said, 
but he agreed with the judge 
that the merits of the dispute 
were not of concern to the 
court 

Not knowing the assets of 
the 220,000-strong union, the 
jud^ said the fine was 
modest and something of “a 
shot in the dark”. 

After ordering the seques- 
tration, Mr Justice Davies 
added that the measure he 
had taken might have been 
less draconian had Sogat 
shown regret for its breach of 
the injunction and an inten- 
tion to obey the order . The 
judge had been told by Mr 
Burton that if the newspapers 
did not appear there wore 
potential losses of £71000 a 
day for The Times, £362,000 
for The Sunday Times , 
£470,000 a day for The Sun 
and £777,000 tor the News of 
the World. 

- He gave the union 14 days 
to pay the fine and ordered it 
to pay the costs. 

The duty of the 
sequestrators under the writ 
granted by the judge is to 
seize all the union's assets 
and to freeze them. 

The only way for Sogat to 
regain control of them win be

The union, 4,000 of whose 
members were dismissed fast 
month after going on strike, 
was also fined £25,000. 

In a hearing fasting just 
over two hours, the judge 
said Sogat was guilty of a 
flagrant contempt of the 
court’s orders and had given 
no hint of altering its 
attitudes . 

The National Graphical 
Association is to . become the 
second print union to face 
proceedings for contempt in 
the dispute ■ between the 
unions and Mr Rupert Mur- 
doch over his new plant at 
Wapping, east London.

Desperate troops 
terrorize Uganda 

From Richard Dowdea, Kram, Uganda 

The National Resistance 
Army is pushing up the road 
to Scroti as troops loyal to 
the former Okello regime fall ' 
back. 

On Sunday they took the 
town of Kumi, halfway be- 
tween Mbale and Soroti. and 
yesterday marched on to- 
wards Soroti. Mr Fred 
Mushega, the front-line NRA 
commander, said he did not' 
think the enemy were going 
to stand and fight at Kapiri 
Rock, which holds a com- 
manding view of the road, 
and railway as they pass 
through an impenetrable 
swamp. Amin's troops held 
up the Tanzanians for several 
days here during the 1979 
war. 

The retreating Okello 
troops are a force of about 
1.000 which came down from 
Acholi a week ago. They 


arrived at Mbale and mur- 
dered everyone they found. A 
Dutch priest said be saw 
them bursting into homes 
killing men, women and 
children. The NRA say about 
300 were killed. 

The Okello force, nearly all 
Acholi, withdrew up the road 
to Soroti, trying to gather 
others who had fled from 
Kampala and Jmja 

Like a wounded monster 
this band has dragged itself 
back north, killing and loot- 
ing in every village. As many 
as 200 civilians may have 
died. At Kami they with- 
drew again as more than 
1.000 NRA infantry moved 
towards the town. They are 
now growing desperate as 
they have to cross Lango 
district to reach their base

Three gain 
exclusive 
OM 
award 

By Abm Hamilton 

The Queen has appointed 
Graham Greene, the novelist, 
Sir Frank Whittle, the jet 
engine pioneer, and Professor 
Frederick Snnger, the molec- 
ular biologist, as members of 
the Order of Merit 
The order, founded by King 
Edward VH in 1902, is 
restricted to 24 holders at a 
time, and vacancies arise only 
when members die. - 
It is one of the few entirely 
ueo-pothkal honours. And 
although it does not bring a 
knighthood, the ex clusi v i ty 
guarantees that the suffix, 

“OkEV fa f j«t_ ^-klM 
prized. ‘ : 

Mr Greene, aged 81, and 
Professor Snnger, aged 67, 
already bold the aider of the 
Companion of Hononr, also 
in the personal gift of the 
Queen but with less exclusiv- 
ity, allowing 65-members at a 
time. Sir Frank, jjged 78, is a 
KBE and a Companion of the 
Order of the Bath. 

Professor Sanger headed 
the Medical Research Coun- 
cil molecular biology labora- 
tory at Cambridge 
He won the Nobel Prize for 
Chemistry in 1958 for his 
studies on the compos i tion of 
proteins, and a^ain in 1980 
for his pioneering work on 
genetic engineering and the 
structure of DNA. 

The Order of Merit has 
traditionally been nsed to 
recognize outstanding 
achievement in the arts and 
sciences. Other holders fe- 
el ade Henry Moore, Sir 
Frederick Ashton. Sir Mi- 
chael Tippett, Lord 
Znckeiman and Prof 
Dorothy Hodgkin. 


Sikorsky set for a 
close victory 
in Westland vote 


By Patience Wheatcroft 


The European consort- 
ium’s tender offer for 20 per 
cent of Westland shares has 
failed. 

The £15.5 million offer was 
intended to assure the con- 
sortium of sufficient votes to 
block the Westland board's 
plans to link with Sikorsky, 
the US company, and Fiat. 

But hardly more than 10 
per cent of shareholders are 
believed to have accepted the 
lender, which now lapses. 

The future of the troubled 
helicopter company now de- 
pends on tomorrow's share- 
holders’ meeting when the 
board's proposals will again 
fbe'lHjr'fo the; vote. ■ V 
- Both the board and the 
opposing European consor- 
tium have almost equal 
numbers of votes pledged to 
them. But it seems likely that 
sufficient numbers of small 
shareholders may decide to 
vote in favour of the board to 
give it the simple majority it 
needs. 

The failure of the tender 
offer is a blow to the 
consortium and its advisers, 
Lloyds Merchant Bank. 

It was pitched at I30p a 
share and was intended to 
appeal to the small share- 
holders who had previously 
been unable to sell their 
Westland shares at the premi- 
um prices being offered to 
huge institutional holders. 

Some deals were done at 
prices above I50p a share, 
and are being looked at by 
the Stock Exchange as part of 
a wide-ranging inquiry into 
suggestions that a two-tier 
market had operated in 
Westland shares. 

Mr David Home, of 


LJoyds Merchant Bank, be- 
lieves that a partial explana- 
tion for the failure may be 
the City rules which forbid 
any active marketing of a 
tender offer. “We could not 
even explain the offer to 
shareholders”, he said. 

The voting at the last 
Westland ballot, when the 
board required a 75 per cent 
majority to proceed with its 
Sikorsky deal, also showed 
that there was a tendency 
among small shareholders to 
support their board, chaired 
by Sir John Cuckney. 

** But Mr Horne said that 
after months of wrangling 
there might- be. a degre e of. 
apathy affecting Westland 
shareholders. This could be a 
vital factor in the vote, to be 
held at the Connaught 
Rooms in London. 

Although the European 
consortium's tender offer has 
now officially lapsed, the 
consortium says that should 
the board's proposals fail, it 
plans to make another offer 
to buy the shares at I30p 
from those who had accepted 
the tender. This is intended 
to persuade those people not 
to vote for the board. 

• Lord Whitefaw, leader of 
the House of Lords, yester- 
day rejected an inquiry into 
the allegation by Mr Alan 
Bristow, the helicopter mil- 
lionaire, that he was offered a 
knighthood by two peers 
(Philip Webster writes). 

Lord Staflard, the Labour 
peer, had called on Lord 
Whitefaw to launch an inves- 
tigation so that the suspicion 
which bad fallen on peers 
could be lifted. 


Tories 
stick by 
then- 
leader 

From Tony Bevins 

Downing Street sources 
yesterday attempted to damp 
down speculation about a 
Conservative leadership chal- 
lenge by insisting that Mrs 
Thatcher was determined to 
fight on for another five 
years. 

It was also said that she 
was “much too old to 
change"; she has now reached 
the age of 60. 

Senior party sources said 
there would be no change of 
style — Mrs Thatcher was not 
so much the iron lady but the 
steel lady and would go to 
the next elections with the 
resolute approach that had 
her scoring so strongly in the 
1983 polls. 

Bui in spite of the concert- 
ed put-down of any leader- 
ship challenge, it was 
volunteered by high-level 
party sources that the Gov- 
ernment looked “untidy”, 
that MPs were “slightly 
nervous and emotional” and 
that the party itself was 
“unsettled”. 

There was also some diver- 
sions in the Government's 
response to the weekend 
spate of speeches and state- 
ments from senior ministers 
and Mr Michael Heseltine 
about the future direction of 
party policy and presentation. 

Downing Street sources 
conceded there might be “a 
bit of an argument” with Mr 
John Biffen, the leader of the 
Commons, about the presen- 
tation of Government poli- 
cies following the publication 
of a constituency letter which 
was seen as a direct attack on 
Mr Norman Tebbil’s con- 
frontational style. 

But Mr Tebbit, chairman 
of the Conservative Party, 
preferred to believe that Mr 
Biffen had been attacking Mr 
Neil Kinnock. the leader of 
the Labour Party. 

Mr Tebbit said on the BBC 
radio World at One pro- 
gramme: “It’s , a very good 
letter and I hope that Neil 
Kinnock and his colleagues 
take notice of it and geLaway 
from this- rather raucous and 
disagreeable style of politics”. 

Commenting on Mr Peter 
Walker’s weekend call for 
“radical rethinking” of Gov- 
ernment policy, Mr Tebbit 
said pointedly: “He’s a mem- 
ber of the Cabinet and we 
share collective responsibility 
together”. 


Labour votes to block militant 


By Philip Webster Political Reporter 


The Labour Party last 
night stepped up its fight 
against the Militant Tendeor 
cy when it refused to endorse 
Mr Pat Wall, who had been 
selected by the constituency 
party at Bradford North^s a 
parliamentary candida t e. 

In a move which infuriated 
the leftk also set in hand 
action which could lead to 
toe expulsion by the national 
executive committee of two 
supporters of the Militant 
Tendency elected to the 
party's Welsh executive. 
They would be tbe first 


expulsions initiated from par- 
ty headquarters since the five 
members of the Militant 
editorial board were thrown 
out three years ago. 

The decision to Mock Mr 
Wall came at a stormy 
meeting of Labour’s organiza- 
tion committee. 

Mr Kenneth Cure and Mrs 
Gwyneth Dunwoody. right- 
wing members of the execu- 
tive, argued that Mr Wall 
should not be endorsed until 
his alleged links with Militant 
had been investigated. 

They proposed instead that 


Mr Wail should be called 
before a meeting of toe 
committee to answer ques- 
tions. Despite opposition 
from Mr Tony Benn, Mr Eric 
Heffer and M r Dennis 
Sldnner.the move was carried 
by nine votes to six.lt was 
agreed that Mr Wall should 
be interviewed “without prej- 
udice to his subsequent 
endorsement” 

The two Welsh executive 
members will be questioned 
further and are likely to 
appear before the full execu- 
tive. 


King Tut 


From AEce BrintoH 

Cairo 

A ten-year search by an 
archaeologist from London 
University and his Dutc h 
partner ended t riumphantly 
on Saturday when they tip- 
toed into the tomb of Maya, 
treasurer to the legendary boy 
fring Tutenkhamon. 

Dr Geoffrey Martfa of 
University College, Loudon 
and Dr Jacobus Van Dp, of 
the Leyden Museum, have 
been excavating since 1975 at 
a site at the ancient necropo- 
fis of Saqaara, 25 raiks sonth 
west of Cairo. 

Yesterday, a jnbnant l/r 
Martin descri bed how tbetwo 

archaeologists made their 
discovery, befieved to be _ the 
most important find smee 
1 922, when Howard Carte 
broke into Tutankhamen's 
tomb itself. 

Dr Martin explained on 
Sunday at toe site how he 

nod Dr Van Dqk had decided 
They had decided to expore

an underground shaft which 
had not previously been 
investisated- 

“Weknew of the existence 
of a first shaft,” Dr Martin 
told os as we stood around 
the opening which ran atom 
nine metres undergroaui, 
“tat we were also aware of 

pnnftMT shaft WyODd thb 

■“At IlJMfam on Satu rday, 
we dim bed town the first 
shaft , crawled along seme 
nibble and found ourselves on 
the rim of the secofeT shaft, 


treasurer and confidant 


about eight metres farther 
down. 

“We lowered a rope ladder 
and with great difficulty 
clambered down. At the 
bottom was a door which we 
went through and down a 
winding staircase. We were 
exceedingly astonished to 
find ourselves in an ante- 
room. 

“We had an electric cable 
and tiros a good light with 
ns_Jt was an .astonishing 
sight In front of os were toe 

most wonderful reliefs, in 


\ 


pristine condition and inscrip- 
tions, and my colleague 
looked across at them and 
said: ‘My God, its Maya' and 
we knew at fast that we were 
in the tomb of a very well 
known personality of 
Tutankhamen's reign.” 

Maya, Dr Martin ex- 
plained, was King 
Tutenkhamon's treasurer, 
known to have been very 
dose to toe toy king during 
his seven-year reign. He even 
presented Tntenkhamnn with 
two funerary statuettes, a 
sup, according to Dr martin, 
of his special position at toe 
court 

Dr Martin said that he had 
first begun his search for 
Maya and his wife Merit's 
tomb in 1975, working on 
information published by 
scholars in the 1840s, in an 
area of Saqqaxa known to to 
rich in important archaeologi- 
cal remains but as yet 
unexplored. 

Instead of Maya, Dr Mar- 
tin came across the tomb of 

* 


one Horemheb, a general who 
became king a few years after 
Totankhanum's death. 

Bat while the Horemheb 
discovery, which has been 
excavated and restored, was 
important, the real find was 
without doubt tbe tomb of 
Maya ami Merit 

Dr Martin acknowledges 
that to and Dr Van Dijk were 
only able to catch a glimpse, 
but that had been enough to 
set their hearts raring. 

“The reliefs of Maya and 
Merit are large-scale and 
done In grid and yellow 
colour comparable to those in 
tbe royal tombs at Thebes," 
said Dr Martin. “We expect 
to find a lot more reliefs all ia 
good condition, and there is 
no telling how big the tomb is 
or bow deep it goes.” 

Tbe two archaeologists are

sortium working with toe

collaboration with toe Egyp- 
tian Antiquities Organization-

Marcos 
bid to 
block 
Aquino 

From David Watts 
Manila 

President Marcus of toe 
Philippines has set in motion 
the legal process to override 
Mrs Corazon Aquino's claim 
that she has won tbe presi- 
dential election. 

The Philippines Parliament 
"went into session last night to 
check election returns and 
declare the winner. Since Mr 
Marcos has a majority, he 
can legally confirm his claim 
to have been re-elected. 

As Mrs Aqoino's sap port- 
ers formed a motorcade 
beaded for Parliament for an 
all-night vigil In case of 
farther attempts to tamper 
with incoming returns, a 
young man was shot and 
killed. 

Yesterday's fraud allega- 
tions included 18 “ghost” 
precincts in Leyte, toe home 
province of the President's 
wife, Mrs 1 me Ida Marcos. 

Mr Marcos maintains that 
he is winning by between 
700.000 and one million 
voles. Mrs Aquino's cam- 
paign office says she has 7.91 
million votes against 7.43 
million for Mr Marcos. It 
says Marcos workers are 
bolding back results in areas 
where be is strongest so they 
can adjust the figures later to 
overcome Mrs Aquino’s 
strength. 

Perhaps as a sign that he 
recognizes that tension is 
increasing, Mr Marcos said 
the counts of both the 
National Movement for Free 
Elections and the Govern- 
ment could continue. Legally, 
both should have stopped 
once Parliament sat as a vote- 
monitoring body. 

Mrs Aquino, who is now 
maintaining a dignified si- 
lence, has not beat seen in 
Manila since election day. 
Her spokesman, Mr Rene 
Sagnisag, said that if the 
election had been honest she 
wonld have won by 74 per 
cent. 

He said the Aquino group 
was waiting to see tbe 
outcome of Parliament's, 
check. “As everyone knows, 
every institution in this coun- 
try has been perverted. This 
is a battle between a group 
which is armed to the teeth 
and tbe people who are aimed 
only with their teeth.” 

Thirty young women who 
walked out of tbe computer 
centre of the state-run Na- 
tional Commission on Elec- 
tions on Sunday night, 
claiming that the government 
emmt was fraudulent, left tbe 
safety of a church early 
yesterday and went into 
hiding. 

Senator Richard Lngar. 
'chairman of the US Senate 
Foreign Relations Committee, 
flew home yesterday with his 
group of observers, saying he 
wonld report on tbe election 
abuses to President Reagan.

Labour job strategy 
seeks state links 




with private sector 



may act 
against 
blacking 


By John Young 


By Philip Webster 
Political Reporter 


.A new Slate enterprise 
organization empowered to 
enter into joint ventures with 
the private sector was pro- 
posed by the Labour Party 
yesterday as one of the 
centra! features of the indus- 
trial strategy to be pursued by 
a Labour government. 

Mr John Smith. Labours 
chief spokesman on trade 
and industry, in a speech 
outlining the policy, accepted 
the need for private sector 
profit levels to be increased 
as part of the effort to 
increase investment by rais- 
ing demand for domestic 
manufactured goods. 

The organization, which 
Mr Smith suggested could be 
called British Enterprise, 
would be aimed at providing 
a new and flexible form of 
state intervention in the 
industrial economy and 
would be similar in conwpt 
to the Industrial Reorganiza- 
tion Corporation of the first 
Wilson Government and the 
National Enterprise Board of 
later years. 

The new enterprise. Mr 
Smith said, would be orga- 
nized and funded by govern- 
ment. able to start industrial 
ventures on its own. enter 
joint ventures with the pri- 
vate sector and ad as a spur 
to innovation. 

It was a form of public 
ownership and intervention 
"which could command wide 
support within industry as 
well as be an effective agent 
in the planning of our 
national industrial recovery." 


TUC calls for 
£6 bn package 


TUC leaders urged the 
Chancellor of the Exchequer 
yesterday hi adopt a £6 billion 
Budget package aimed at 
raising output and cutting 
unemployment. 

But the Prime Minister has 
hinted any cash give- 

away is likely to take the 
form of tax arts for the low 
paid. 

Top earners had done wed 
oat of tax concessions under 
this Government. Mrs Mar- 
garet Thatcher said. Now it 
was time to help the lower 
paid. 

Her comments, published 
in CBI News, came on the 
day when the HJC presented 
its Budget proposals to the 
Chancellor. 

The TUC is calling for 
more government investment 
in services such as roads, 
hospitals and schools. 


Labours strategy, which 
has been criticized by the left 
as paying too much heed to 
the requirements of private 
industry, depended on a 
strong working relationship 
between all sides of industry 
and the Government, accord- 
ing to Mr Smith, who was 
speaking at Sussex Universi- 
ty- 


He said that the present 
fashion of takeovers could 
not be regarded as a solution 
to industry's problems or a 


substitute for industrial poli- 
cy. "With the current free- 


for-all. the battle between the 
private sector barons makes 
money for the advertising 
agencies and the City finance 
houses who rival each other 
with increased profits won 
through the game of *Who 
Dares Merge*." 

Mr Smith said that indus- 
try must be revived to allow 
a resumption of economic 
growth "at socially acceptable 
levels of unemployment and 
output". The overriding re- 
quirement in raising the 
volume of private sector 
investment was raising de- 
mand for domestic manufac- 
tured goods. 

He continued: “Although 
the public sector may itself 
embark upon a programme, 
for example, of public works 
projects, it is the private i 
sector which must provide 
the bulk of the investment 
effort required." 

Private sector investment 
would not be forthcoming 
"without the prospect of a 
period of sustained buoyant 
demand". Ensuring high de- 
mand by taking up the slack 
in industrial capacity, and in 
consequence raising profit 
margins, was a necessary 
requirement of industrial re- 
vival 

Mr Smith said there was 
no hope of recovery unless 
there was a new and sus- 
tained commitment to educa- 
tion and training. “Our aim— 
and it is a perfectly possible 
one-should be within, say, a 
10-year period to attain the 
best trained and educated 
workforce and management 
in Western Europe."

Contract delayed

By Rodney Cowton, Defence Correspondent 


Kitty Bent ley. aged 30. .

of Bute and estranged wife of 
the businessman Mr John 
Bentley, was pul on proba- 
tion for two years yesterday 
at Knightsbridge Crown 
Counaftcr admitting possess- - 
ing heroin. 


The signing of the comma 
for the construction of 
Britain's first Trident subma- 
rine is likely to be delayed by 
about three months, but the 
Ministry of Defence said 
yesterday that would not 
delay the overall programme. 


advance work on the third 
and fourth vessels would be 
in progress. i 


Judge Bowen said that her 
decline inlo the world of 
drugs presented the “familiar, 
catalogue of misery, unhappi- 
ness and despair." 


A former Lloyd's under- 
writer. Simon Pearl, aged 35. 
who had admitted allowing 
his home in Addison Road, 
Nouing Hill, west London, to 
be used in the supply of 
heroin and supplying heroin, 
was jailed for a year. 


It had been hoped that the 
contract between the ministry 
and Vickers Shipbuilding, of 
Barrow-i n-Fumesss. would 
have been agreed by the end 
of the financial year in April 
but it now looks as though ft 
may be June before negotia- 
tions are complete. 


Vickers said the delay had 
arisen because there had been

cancelled.

Lawyers in legal aid wrangle 


Bar chooses ‘donnish’ QC 


By Frances Gibb 
Legal Affairs Correspondent 

Mr Sydney Kemridge. QC. 
who has just won the highest 
accolade from his colleagues 
by being their choice as 
advocate in the Bars legal 
action against the Lord Chan- 
cellor. is widely liked and 
held to be “extremely popu- 
lar with judges’*. 

The South Africa-trained 
lawyer, who has been the 
leading commercial silk at 
the South African Bar for the 
past 20 years, has established 
a reputation as one of the 
best and most senior QCs in 
this country. 

Mr Kemridge, aged 62, has 
won fame for representing 
Mrs Winnie Mandela, the 
anti-apartheid campaigner in 
South Africa last month; the 
family of Steve Biko at the 
inquest into his death; and 
The Guardian in the Sarah 
Tisdall case. 

He has a large commercial 
practice and is based in the 
same Temple chambers as 
the chairman of the Bar, Mr 
Robert Alexander, QC. 

Mr Kentridgewas called to 
the Bar here in 1977. and 
rapidly took silk in 1984, a 
sign of the esteem in which 
judges held him, according to 



Mr Kentridge, said to be 
popular with judges 

colleagues. 

Mr Alexander, who an- 
nounced at the weekend that 
Mr Kemridge would repre- 
sent the Bar in the unprece- 
dented legal challenge against 
the Lord Chancellor, said 
yesterday:"He is one of the 
leading advocates in the 
English speaking world and 
also someone of seniority and 
experience. 

“We felt it was particularly 
important that, in an issue 
which requires detailed pre- 


sentation, someone of this 
kind should be called." 

Mr Alexander, himself , 
widely acknowledged to be at 
the top of his profession, i 
added that it was obviously ; 
not appropriate that he , 
should argue the case himself, 
as lawyers should not “ap- 
pear in their own cause" 

Mr Kemridge. a popular 
man of short stature, is 
known for bis slow, deliber- 
ate, almost “donnish" style of 
advocacy, which is highly 
successful in its impact. 

Although a commercial 
specialist, Mr Kentridge has 
extremely wide experience 
and his time is now divided 
equally between London and 
work in South Africa, the 
Far East and the United 
States. 

He is now lecturing in the 
United Stales and is to return 
especially to take the main 
■ hearing of the Bar’s action for 


a judicial review of the Lord 


iccUot's derision to limit 


the legal aid pay rise to 5 per 
cent for inflation. 

The team which the Bar 
has appointed with Mr 
Kentridge is Mr Tom Morris.

The four submarines are 
expected to account for about 
30 per cent of the project’s 
cost. As constructed by

be about £400 million for

Motoring Correspondent 
A leading consumer protec- 
tion official said yesterday 
that with up to 400,600 cars a 
year being sold with 
“docked” mikometers the 
Government should take Im- 
mediate action to introduce 
tough new laws to end this 
and other widespread frauds. 

Mr Bob WrjgfaL Chief 
Consumer Protection Officer 
for Sooth Yorkshire, said 
interference with mileoraeters 
was costing motorists an 


estimated £100 million a year 
became they were paying too 
much (or cars with huge 


His office yesterday re- 
ceived complaints about two 
Vauxtoli Cavaliers with mile- 
age readings of 22£0O and 
22,000 which were reliably 
reported to have coveted 
72390 and 66,000 miles. 

Mr Wright said a recent 
check by consumer officials 
from six metropolitan coun- 
cils found that one in 12 
second-hand cars on sale 


were unroadworthy. 

An investigation of service 
costs showed that half the 
motorists Interviewed paid 
more than the manufacturers 
recommended prices. Some 
paid three times as much for 
identical work on identical 
cars. 


His call win almost certain- 
ly be backed by consumer 
authorities when they meet 
for their annnaj congress in 
Newcastle upon Tyne in 
ApriL 


ing, for instance, the claim 
font 30 per cent of nsed cars 
sold here have been "docked*. 


Mr Wright said that codes 
of practice were not working 
and should be replaced by 
tough new legislation, indnd- 
ing foe licensing of garages 
and stronger legal powers for 
consumer offidaJs. 


Mr Philip Stem, of the 
Motor Agents Association, 
said: “Some of these claims 
look highly dubious. We have 
bees invited to attend the 
Consumer Congress next 
month as observers and we 
would like to see someone 
produce the evidence support- 


“We shook! also fike to see

has been loofeig at these 
complaints. In that way it 
would seem less like a

solution and one we would 
back is for a simple code of 
practice to be draws np for

courts."

‘Child ombudsman 
to investigate state 
education grievances 


Britain's biggest education 
authority is planning. to set 
“P v J a ’’children's 
ombudsman” to investigate 
complaints by pupils and 
parents. 

The proposal, to be includ- 
ed in the Labour Party 
manifesto for the Inner 
London Education Authority 
(Ilea) elections in May, is 
intended to improve educa- 
tion accountability. It will be 
regarded with horror by 
officers and head teachers, 
particularly as it may be 
taken up by other authorities. 

An Ilea official said: “At 
the moment, if parents or 
children wish to com plain it’s 
an incredibly difficult proce- 


dure 

most 


to go through, as it is 
other authorities’*.

The scheme, which is 
expected to be implemented 
before the start of (he next 
school year, could cover 
school discipline where a 
parent or pupil feh the rules 
had not been followed, or 
were unfair. It could also 
apply to opportunities to 
study a particular subject 


It is perhaps no coinci-

of the local 
ombudsman. 

The Alliance envisages that 
the ombudsman woukl have 
the power to investigate 
complaints, obtain informa- 
tion from education officers 
and publish findings. 

An Alliance spokesman 
said: “We believe that for the 
most part the education 
bureaucracy in Ilea does 
genuinely attempt to make 
itself accessible and helpful to 
parents. 

“But there are times when 
parents fed shut out and 
frustrated by the system and 
need an independent outsider 
to help them.” 

The Ilea spokesman said 
the idea would not threaten 
. the power of head teachers. 

• The executive of the Assis- 
tant Masters and Mistresses 
Association has decided to 
ratify the pay deal which is 
expected to end the teachers' 
pay dispute. 

But AMMA members win 
continue to work to rule, 
refusing to perform out-of- 
school activities and to cover 
for absent colleagues, until 
the deal is ratified as expect- 
ed by the fun Bur nham 
Committee on Februaiy 28. 

The Advisory, Conciliation 
and Arbitration Service 
agreement gives teachers a 
pay rise of 6.9 per cent, rising 
to 8.5 per cent by the end of 
March. It also establishes a 
framework for negotiating a 
new salary structure 

• Sir Keith Joseph, Secretary 
of State for Education and 
Science, said yesterday that 
the education welfare service 
was not an extension of 
personal social services but 
had, as an essential function, 
the promotion of the impor- 
tant educational objective of 
‘regular school attendance.

David Adams, a' toyshop

Crown Court yes- 


Joan Collins settlement 


Joan Collins, the actress, 
and her partners in a lawsuit 
received £147.233 on account 
yesterday, without having to 
attend the High Court in 
London for their contract 
dispute with Brent Walker, 
the film group. 

.Miss Collins, aged 52, had 
claimed damages for alleged 
fraud, conspiracy and breach 
of contract over royalty 
payments from The Stud, the 
1978 film which revived her 
career. 

As the action was about to 
start in court yesterday, Brent 
Walker made Miss Coffins 
and her co-plain tiffs an offer 
of settlement— a £147,233 in- 
terim payment and an inde- 
pendent account of the 


profits from the film to 
determine how much more is 
due. It agreed to pay the 
accountants’ bill up to 
£40,000. 

Miss Collins’s side accept- 
ed the offer and withdrew its 
allegation of fraud and con- 
ipiracy. 

The actress was paid a 
reported £14,500 for her role 
in The Stud. She now 
receives £50,000 an episode 
for playing Alexis in the 
television series Dynasty. 
That contract is said to be 
worth £3 million. 

The Stud, based on the 
novel by Jadrie Collins, the 
actress’s sister, cost an esti- 
mated £300,000 to make but 
took millions. 


In 1977 Miss Collins,' Mr 
Ron Kass, then her husband, 
and Jackie Collins agreed to 
make The Stud with Brent 
Walker, Mr Greoige Carman, 
QC counsel for Miss Collins, 
told the court yesterday. 

The company, which was 
run by Mr George Walker, 
brother of Billy Walker, the 
former boxer, arranged fi- 
nance and distribution. 

Later, Mr Quentin Masters, 
who directed The Stud, 
became party to the agree- 
ment to share in the exploita- 
tion of the film. 

But by 1980, “anxieties 
arose about the promptness 
and detail” of payments to 
Miss Collins and her part- 
ners. Mr Carman said. 


Winchester 
terday for what a judge 
described as the “monstrous” 
killing of a girl aged nine. 

Adams, aged 37, of Ashley 
Road, Paiksione. Poole, Dor- 
set, pleaded guilty to murder- 
ing Claire Slagg in his shop 
last September. 

Mr Roger Titheridge, QC, 
for the prosecution, said the 
body of the girl, who lived at 
Layton Road near by , had 
been found trussed and 
folded in a plastic bag inside 
a box which had contained a 
child's pedal car. 

The prosecution said por- 
nographic magazines and 
videos had been found in the 
shop, with photographs, ap- 
parently taken by Adams 
from the shop, of women 
passing by in the street. 

The coun was told that 
Adams's wife had just given 
birth to a girl. 

Judge Stnan-Smith. who 
did not order a minimum 
sentence, said: “Everyone in 
this coun who has heard the 
facts of this monstrous crime 
must be sickened and revolt- 
ed by what they have heard. 

“Having seen some of the 


literature, if that is the proper 
word for it, found in your 
possession and read the 
description of others, h 
seems to me not improbable 
it had an effect on your 
mind.” 

Mr Roger Backhouse, QC, 
for the defence, said Adams 
had got drunk ihe night 
before the murder. 

Adams was said to have 
strangled the girl with a five- 
foot strip of blue cloth which 
he wrapped twice around her 
neck and then knotted. 

Adams’s wife, Linda, aged 
34, four months pregnant at 
the time of the killing, was 
cooking Sunday lunch in 
their flat when her husband 
struck. 

Mm Adams thought he was 
working on the shop's win- 
dow display and had no idea 
he was responsible for the 
girl's disappearance. 

She was distraught when 
told by detectives and left 
next day to stay with her 
parents in London, taking 
their son, aged three. 

Detectives discovered that 
in 1968, before Adams was 
married, he had been jailed 
for four years for attempted 
rape.

Derby death ‘accident’

No one 


The suffragette who threw 
herself imder King Edward 
VH’s horse during the 1913 
Derby at Epsom did not end 
her life in sHicide. It was, 
according to new evidence, an 
accident. 


A collection of Emily 
Davidson’s possessions re- 
cently found in a Sussex attic 
contains evidence to show 
bow the inquest jury reached 
its verdict of death by 
misadventure. 


The three key items are a 
pass for a suffragette rally 


later that day, which suggests 
that she planned to attend; a 
race card which shows she 
had been betting; and a 
return train ticket to Victoria. 
Miss Davidson had suffrag- 
ette flags pinned inside her 
coat, and it now appears that 
she merely intended to con- 
duct her own brief demonstra- 
tion under the gaze of the 
King's binoculars. 

Mr Richard Pankhnrst, son 
of the suffragette, Sylvia 
Pankhnrst unearthed the evi- 
dence at the home of Mrs 
Rntb Yates in Rye, Sussex. 


Prayers 
of rape 
victim, 73 


A “deeply religions” wid- 
ow, aged 73, recited prayers 
as she was being raped by an. 
intruder, the Central Crimi- 
nal Court was told yesterday. 

The woman -woke aTti am 
to find Michael Cbffins 
standing over her lied. He 
stole £10 from her handbag 
and, after raping her, said 
that he would retam and stab 
her to death if she told the 
police, Mr Jeremy Carter- 
Manning, For the prosecution,, 
said. 

Collins, aged 23, mem- 
ployed, of Chadwick Road, 
Hariesden, north-west Lon- 
don, was jailed for seven : 
years for raping the grand- 
mother after mixing .drags 
with drink at a party. He 
admitted the offence. 

Collins told his victim 
afterwards: “A Mack man 
raping a white woman— I wffl 
get three years for this”. But 
Judge Thomas Pigot, the 
Common Serjeant said Col- 
lins was wrong on two counts: 
’’Whatever nationality, 
whether black or white, yon 
will be dealt with in the same 
way by these courts. 

“Secondly, if anyone har- 
bours the delusion that three 
years is an appropriate and 
proper sentence for an offence 
of this gravity they are 
wrong.”

known as toe “king off

also a champion, said that]

Ginger Xmas Carol’s suc- 
cess came 25 years after 
Riverina Tweedsbairn became 
the first Airedale to be 
supreme durapioa at Grafts 
hi 1961. 

There are more than 1,409 
registered Airedales in Brit- 
ain, acco rding to the Kennel 
Oil of Great Britain. Many 
are exported. 

The breed's popularity has 
risen and fallen since it was 
first recognized by the Kamel 
Club in the 1880s. The dog is 
thought to have developed 
through a cross between an 
otter hand and an OM 
Fjt gftsh terrier. Other 
known breeds also contribnt-

Standing 24 indies to toe 
shoulder, the Airedale, known 
then as the Bangley or 
Waterside terrier, was re- 
nowned for. its hunting prow- 
ess, 'particularly with foxes 
and rats. 


” Airedales are also won- 
derful family pets, particular- 
ly with children. Dog owners 
should realize, however, that 
they are terriers and tew a 
boisterous temperament” 
Mis Hanks said.

Welsh secretary 
sticks to policy 


EMPLOYMENT 


There was no need for a 
switch in the government 
attitude on unemployment. Mr 
Nicholas Edwards. Secretary of 
State for Wales, said during 
Welsh questions in the Com- 


he hoped this would not be 
needed. 

Sir Anthony Meyer (Clwyd 
North West. Q said the 
quickest alleviation of prob- 
lems lay in farther expansion 
of the Community Programme 


the Minister should do every- 
ss for 


mens when be was challenged 
icher 


by a Labour back-ben c 
about Mr Michael Hese/ tine's 
weekend speech calling for the 
creation of a new "coring 
capitalism." 

Mr Edwards said he did not 
think it needed a switch or 
change of attitude because 
concern on unemployment was 
shared by ail government 
ministers. 

He welcomed ibe changes in 
attitudes and performance in 
industry generally, though it 
was necessary for those in work 
to recognise that their pay 
increases created unemploy- 
ment 

Mr Edwards was answering 
Mr Raymond Powell (Ogmore, 
Lab) who had asked if he 
shared Mr Heseldne’s view 
that the government and the 
Conservative Party must 
switch to caring Conservatism 
and caring capitalism. 

Unemployment created 
degmditioa and frustration in 
homes, schools and in society 
generally iMr Powell said). Is 
not Mr Edwards concerned at 
the desperation which is lead- 
ing to the escalation of violence 
and crime in the Principality in 
particular? Or about the yoong 
taking to drugs? Isn’t it time 
that he joined his colleagues in 
protesting? There should be a* 
change in atxituide or a change 
in leadership. 

Sir Raymond Gower (Vale of 
Glamorgan. C) said Mr 
Powell's description of violence 
in Wales was a gross mis- 
representation and a distortion 
or the conditions there. 

Mr Edwards said perhaps the 
most important thing for job 
creation in Wales was to 
consider the reputation gained 
by firms here and abroad, in 
the attitude and performance of 
the Welsh workforce and the 
people. 

They do not have an image 
of violence and hostility (S ir 
Raymond continued) tool of a 
workforce which will cooperate 
to the full to make a success of 
companies. That is where the 
future lies. 

Mr Ronald Davies (Caer- 
philly, Lab) said that in Wales 
there was little real prospect of 
the young gening work and 
they bad to rely almost entirely 
on the Youth Training Scheme. 

The Mid Glamorgan Support 
Group had decided to refuse to 
sanction any further YTS 
schemes in 1986-87. 

Mr Edwards said it was not 
true to say there was no 


thing he could to press tor 
removal of the remain! 
obstacles in the way of ex 
ing iu 

Mr Edwards said this pro- 
gramme was important for the 
long term unemployed. At the 
end of Dece m be r last year 
there were about 12.000 filled 
places in Wales and the aim 
was to expand this to 20.500 by 
June. 

Mr Michael Foot (Btanau 
Gwent, Lab) said it was absurd 
and intolerable that this gov- 
ernment should insist through 
the MSC that extra funding 
should be made available by 
local authorities, particularly in 
the areas hardest hit. to get 
training schemes going. 

Why does he not think 
boldly (Mr Foot said), and say 
that central government should 
pay for it? 

Mr Edwards: I do not take it 
very well from Mr Foot of all 
people that he should lecture 
this government on youth 
training when his government 
failed to make provision for 
proper youth training. 

This government bad 
launched the largest youth 
training programme ever un- 
dertaken in the country and 
have extended the YTS. one 
year to a two year scheme. 
Labour had left a monstrous 
backlog for the government to 
catch up an. 


the receiving end not of caring 
capitalism but of naked, aggres- 
sive capitalism. 

Mr Edwards said regional 
policy was effective and Wales 
was well placed as bom out by 
the fact that over about 3 years 
Wales had got about 20 per 
cent of all inward investment 
to this country. In I98S it had 
obtained 48 overseas projects, 
more than double the 1983 
figure. 

in the last week Wales had 
been able to get one of the best 
high technology research-based 
British company’s to open a 
new factory in Gwent It would 
take on over 500 people and 
was a world leading firm. 

Later. Mr Edwards said the 
unemployment total for the 
whole of Wales was 176,500, 
an increase of 135 per cent 
since 1979. 

Mr Barry Jones, chief Oppo- 
sition spokesman on Wales, 
said those figures invalidated 
Mr Edwards’ earlier remarks. 

When mil this waste of 
human resources in Wales (he 
asked) come to an end? When 
can our people expect work in 
measurable numbers which will 
get rid of distressing dole 
queues? 

In the labour market report 
by the MSC three-quarters of 
all job losses in Wales are in 
the manufacturing sector and, 
on that basis, the de- 
industralisation of Wales under 
this Government continues 
apace, losing blue chip compa- 
nies like Couraulds. Metal Box 
and the Milk Marketing Board. 
He should ensure a change of 



WESTLAND 


A call for an inquiry into the 
allegation by Mr Alan Bristow 
that be was offered a knight- 
hood in return for bis with- 
drawal from the Westland bid, 
was rejected by Viscount 
Whftelaw, Lord President of 
the Council and Leader of the 
House of Lords, during ques- 
tion time in die House of 
Lords. 

Answering a question about 
die Government's knowledge 
of the alleged offer to Mr 
Bristow, Viscount WhHelaw 
said: It is not for me to 
question statements made by 
Mr Bristow, but I can assure 
the House that it is not 
possible within the workings of 
the honours system that any 
such offer could effectively 
have been made. 

Lord Stafford (Lab): I noted 
carefully Mr Bristow's exonera- 
tion of the Prime Minister in 
connection with the allegations. 


but there is great public 
disbelief that a non of Mr 
Bristow's background, charac- 
ter and obvious active support 
of the Tory Party, could 
concetveably have fabricated 
such an allegation. 

As two members of this 
House have been mentioned in 
this inducement and . that 
brings suspicion on all of us in 
this House, will be initiate an 
inquiry so we can find out the 
truth and lift suspicion?. 

Viscount White fowi The fact 
that Mr Bristow has exonerated 
the Prime Minister effectively 
makes my point It is not ft 
me either to confirm or doty 
(he latest proposals about Mr. 
Bristow since I must say I have 
no knowledge of Mr Bristow in 
any regard. I have met him, 
but I have no knowledge of his 
political affiliations. - 

I do not see bow any offer 
which, if it was made must 
have been in the form of gossip 
or tittle-tattle, could possibly be 
the subject of an inquiry. 

Lord Pevtrta of Yeovil <ck 


Does the originator of such 
suggestions .without revealing 
the sources, accept thereafter to 
have very little weight attached 
to anything be soys and those 
who circulate the su g g es t io n, do 
themselves very little credit? 

Viscount Wbitefawi I have 
no comment to make on Mr 
Bristow. 

Viscount St Davids (tad); It 
is dear that any peer who 
offered Mr Bristow an honour 
of any kind must inevitably 
have been suffering from 
certifiable insanity and ts thus 
excusable from this House. 
(Laughter) 

Lord WUrefovr That ques- 
tion shows bow wise I was to 
refrain from any particular 
comment. 

Lord Hatch of Lnsby (Lab): 
There is nothing unusual about 
members of this House or 
other members of the political 
system, promising to recom- 
mend that an individual be 
given a knighthood or a 
p eer ag e. 


In Mr Bristow's case he 
would qualify in view of the 
rccoid of this Governmenfs 
recommendations for honours, 
in that he is very wealthy and 
has contributed substantially to 
the Conservative Party. . 

Viscount Whitsfow: I do not 
know Mr Bristow's position. As 
for the honours system, of 
course there will befew in this 
House, and I am not immune, 
who have not had people come 
□p to them saying “would not 
it be a good idea bid bey if 1 
was to join you in the House of 
Lords?" 

1 have beard that on aB.sons 
of occasions, bur if I was to say 
"Yes. that would be absolutely 
splendid" I would not ac tually 
be making an offer or recom- 
mendation because the system 
has many checks and balances 
which have been there a tong < 
time.

Edwards: Pay increases 
create unemployment 

Mr Dafydd Wigley (Caernar- 
fon. PI C) said that despite the 
changes brought on stream 
with YTS. unemployment had 
more than doubled since 1979. 
A policy change was needed. 
How much worse must be the 
situation become before a 
change was made? 

Mr Edmuds: Mr Wigley 
does not tell us what his policy 
would be to produce growth 
without inflation. He should 
welcome that we are in the fifth 
year of growth, that inflation 
continues to fall, that we have 
the fastest growing economy in 
Europe, that investment and 
manufacturing investment 
have grown steadily since 1983 
and that many firms in Wales 
are undertaking massive invest- 
ment. massive expansion and 
are taking on people. 

Mr Roy Hughes. Opposition 
spokesman on Wales, said

further until 1990. The trend 
was towards social disintegra- 
tion. be suggested, an was it

Mr Edwards: We are dealing 
with a situation in which there* 
are about 35.000 people who 
have joined those eligible to 
work during the period of this 
Government so we have more 
people coming into the labour 
market. 

We had to deal with what 1 
think may well have been the 
Final stage in the decline of the 
old basic industries in Wales 
that has gone on for many 
generations and we must now 
look to build on die very 
substantial number of new 
companies we have succeeded 
in attracting over the last few 
years. 

Later. Mr Edwards said the 
Government had provided 
massive assistance, including 
urban aid. to Clwyd in tbe last 
12 months. They would con- 
tinue to provide that particular 
area of North East Wales with 
support at a high level. 

Because they were doing so, 
it was a part of Wales that was 
being particularly successful in 
attracting new investment and 
new industries. 

Mr Allan Sogers (Rhondda, 
Lab) said the position in Wales 
was disastrous. Inward invest- 
ment was not there in sufficient 
scale to solve the deep problem 
they had in Wales. The 
Government should stop im- 
porting foreign coal Hus was 
destroying the mining industry 
of South Wales. 

Will the Secretary of State 
(he continued) cease his weak- 
kneed. pathetic subservience to 
the Prime Minister? 

Mr Edwards said the import 
of some special coals was 
required because these coals 
were not readily available in 
this country. The coals were 
required by the British Steel 
Corporation which had to 
survive in a competitive mar- 
ket 


Mr Richard lame. Minister 
for the Arts, said in the 
Commons he hoped an initia- 
tive announced that day by the 
Arts Council would enable the 
Sadler's Wells theatre to be 
kept open. 

The Arts Council had an- 
nounced it would hold a 
meeting on Friday February 14 
with Sadler's Wells and tbe 
three companies that regularly 
used the theatre to discuss a 
possible solution. This would 
involve the Arts Council giving 
the companies additional funds 
in order to enable them to pay 
economic levels of rent for the 
theatre. 

Mr Lace added later (in a 
written reply): I applaud this 
initiative, and I hope and 
believe that a scheme on these 
lines, combined with other 
fund-raising efforts as appro- 
priate, will enable the main 
stage of the theatre to remain 
open. 

I understand that there is 
also a separate plan to open a 
new community studio during 
1986-87. No doubt Sadler's 
Wells will be discussing this 
with the Arts Council and the 
relevant successor authorities. 

Mr Norman St JohinSteras 
(Chelmsford, C). former Arts 
Minister, had said that business 
sponsorship had tragically 
failed to raise the small sum of 
money needed to keep the 
Sadler's Wells theatre open and 
had asked what plans Mr Luce 
had for finding that £250.000 
which would save the nation 
from a major cultural disaster. 

Mr Luce said that the 
present level of business 
sponsorship for tbe arts was 
estimated by the Association 
for Business Sponsorship of the 
Arts at about £20 million. 

Mr Timothy Yeo (South 
Suffolk, O'- The level of 
business sponsorship could be 
substantially increased if 
companies could deduct their 
donations up to an agreed limit 
of pre-tax profits, akmg Ameri- 
can lines. 

This would be a cost- 
effective charge because for 
each pound of tax revenue 
foregone expenditure on the 
arts would increase by almost 
£3. 

Mr Luce: The Business 
Sponsorship Incentive Scheme 


has made a significant 
contribution in increasing the 
amount of money for the arts 
in the last 15 or 16 months, 
which is now to the tune of 
£6.700,000. 

That is a lot of money, 
additional money for the arts, 
and it is something; which 1 
have increased in the forth- 
coming year's financial budget. 

On tax changes, a number of 
positive changes have been 
made in. the last few years 
designed to encourage addi- 
tional business sponsorship for 
the arts, 1 wish to see further 
improvements in that connec- 
tion. 

Mr Tony Banks (Newham 
North West, Lab): The figure 
he gave of £20 million for 
business sponsorship is only an 
estimate and I personally 
believe it is far less than £20 
million. 

Will be take steps to ensure 
that business sponsorship 
money for the am is recorded

otherwise there is going to be a

Mr L nee I take his point I 
suspect it is a conservative 
estimate. 

Mr Toby Jessd (Twick- 
enham, O congratulated the 
Minister on having used his 
office to bring about the 
announcement on Sadler’s 
Wells. 

Mr Luce, while expressing 
gratitude, said it was prin- 
cipally tbe responsibility of the 
Arts Council to find a satisfac- 
tory solution. The meeting of 
February 14 would, he be- 
lieved, be a move towards, 
finding a solution to enable the 
theatre to keep open. 


The Government was not 
prepared to abandon the new 
General Certificate of Second- 
ary Education examination and 
to preside over what would be 
a chaotic retreat. Mr Chris- 
topher Patten, Minister of State 
for Education and Science, 
declared in a Commons debate 
on education and training. 

He said preparations for the 
examination . were, unprece- 
dented. Most of them had gone 
according to plan and some 
were slightly ahead of plan. 

He agreed that the timetable 
was tight and put additional 
professional demands on 
secondary school teachers, bat 
retreat from that timetable was 
simply not an option. 

The Government would lis- 
ten sympathetically, however, 
to any suggestions made by tbe 
examining .groups, employers 
or teacher unions about ways 
m which tbe Government 
might help to smooth the 
introduction of this important 
examination. 

Teaching of the new sylla- 
buses would start this autumn. 
The examination would be sat 
for the first time in the summer 
of 1988. 

Opening the debate, Mr Alan 
Haseffumt (Saffron Walden, 
C) moved a motion calling for 
future policy towards 14 to 19 
year olds to be based on a dose 
integration of education, train- 
ing and tbe youth service, 
taking full account of the amw 
and objectives of Industry ' 
Year. 

He said education and train- . 
mg should begin at tbe age of 
14 and there should be three' 
choices - first, an acaricmkafly- 
orie mated course; second, a 
technical and vocationally-ori- 
entated course; and third, a

accepted norm that frill time 
work only begin at the age of 
18 at the earliest. 

They should encourage 
youngsters to be able to switch 
about between different routes 
and channels. 

Employee had to understand 
what they woe getting when 
young people presented them- 
selves seeking a Job.- Therefore, 
employers must have greater 
input into the system, making 
it clear what they expect from 
potential recruits. 

Mr Patten said there would be 
chaos only if some of. the 
iffriwr unions determined that 
there would be chaos. 

But I do nor believe (he said) 
in the week of what we ail hope 
wiQ be a satisfactory settlement 
under ACAS, that any respon- 
sible secondary teacher will 
really set out to wreck what afl 
teacher unions recognize as tire 
most important wlmviinMi 
advance for children of this sue 
that anyone has undertaken for 
years. 

For most yoong people h 
was crystal dear that a oncc- 
and-for-afi plunge into the Job 
marto without any training 
after age 16 offered only the 
most questionable of futures. 

One reason for the failure to 
bring together education and 
training was the absurd and 
debilitating polarization be-

ing and so-called vocational

HOUSE OF LORDS 


There were loud Conser- 
vative reactions after MPs had 
been told that the chief 
executive of the Welsh Water 
Authority (Mr Bernard Doyle) 
had complained to Mr Nicho- 
las Edwards, Secretary of State 
for Wales, that a statement in 
the Commons last week by 
Mrs Ann Clwyd (Cynon Val- 
ley. Lab) was a complete 
fabrication. 

It happened during ques- 
tions, after Mrs Clwyd had 
reminded Mr Edwards that he 
had told MPs that the chair- 
man of the Welsh Water 
Authority (Mr John El fed 
Jones) favoured privatisation. 
But she told him that tbe chief 
executive had said he could see 
no value in it for consumers or 
employees.

speaking (she asked) 


The chairman, whom Mr 
Edwards appointed, or tbe 
chief executive, who is speak- 
ing for the majority of the 
people of Wales? (Conservative 
protests). 

Mr Edwards said the chief 
executive had written to him 
about what Mrs Clwyd quoted 
him as saying. 

The letter said Mr Doyle was 
sorry confusion was caused- 
(Labour laugh terj-and that he 
wanted to set the record 
straight by making it clear he 
said nothing of the son to Mrs 
Clwyd (Conservative cries of 
“Oh”). Mr Doyle had said be 
felt particularly aggrieved that 
words attributed to him in the 
House were a complete fabrica- 
tion. 

Earlier. Mr Edward Row- 


lands (Merthyr Tydfil and 
Rhymney. Lab) said the 
overwhelming majority of peo- 
ple in Wales found it deeply 
offensive that there was to be 
profiteering on such a basic 
supply as water to their homes. 
There would be no com- 
petition. 

Mr Edwards (he said) has no 
mandate to introduce this sort 
of system before the next 
election. (Labour cheers and 
Conservative protests). 

Mr Edwards said many 
people in Wales would like to 
buy shares in the new com- 
pany. It was not true that there 
would be no competition. 
There was room for greatly 
improved service and ef- 
ficiency. 

Later, on a point of order, 
Mrs Clwyd said the Secretary 


of State for Wales ) bad 
accused her of misleading the 
House by quoting from a 
statement made by tbe chief 
executive of the Welsh Water 
Authority. She would like to 
repeat that statement 
The Speaker (Mr Bernard 
Weatherill): ] cannot allow her 
to do that because this is an 
extension of question time. We 
frequently hear answers with 
which we disagree. 

If 1 allowed her to take np a 
challenge of that kind I would 
have to do it for every other 
MP. It would not be fair. 

Mr Edwards: I think it 
would be helpful if I were to 
lay the full text of the letter in 
the library. Thai is what I 
propose to do. 

Mr Barry Jones, Chief 
Opposition spokesman on 


Wales: 1 welcome that Mr 
Edwards made an unwarranted 
attack on Mrs Clwyd 

Mr KAwnrdx I made no 
attack on her. I merely quoted 
from a letter sent to me by 
someone who fat aggrieved by 
something said by her. 

Mrs Clwyd: It would have 
been courteous for the chief 
executive of the Welsh Water 
Authority to have sent me a 
copy of tbe letter and I would 
expect an apology

British Shipbuilders has 
produced a contender for a 
new class of Royal Fleet 
Auxiliary supply ship, which 
it claims will cost only half as 
much as a design scheduled 
to be ordered by tbe Royal 
Navy next month. 


Hie new design is known 
as the Fleet Support King 
20/20 because it can operate 
at more than 20 knots and 
carry more than 20,000 
tonnes of cargo. It was first 
shown to the Royal Navy last 
October and detailed specifi- 
cations have been under 
examination since December. 



The Fleet 
cheaper and 


.Hag 20/20 , British Shipfarildexs’ 
rival for the Royal Fleet Auxiliary 


Mr Graham Day, chairman 
and chief executive of British 
Shipbuilders, said it was 
designed as a possible re- 
placement for the 
ships of the Royal 
Auxiliary. 


Consortia led by Hariand 
and Wolff and Swan Hunter 
have submitted tenders to 
build the first of another class 
of support ship, the auxiliary 
oiler replenishment (AOR) 
vessels, which are specifically 
intended to support the 
navy's new type of frigate, 
the Type 23- Duke Glass, 


The Ministry of Defence 
originally estimated a price of 
less than £ 100 m ill i nn ea ch 

for the AORs. but there have 
been persistent reports that 
the tender price will be about 
£!35million each, and that 
the specification had to be 
lowered to get the cost down 
to that leveL 

Tbe price includes defen- 
sive weapons, including the 
vertical-launch Sea Wolfmis- 
sile. Mr Day put the price of 
British Shipbuilders' un- 
armed King 20/20 at £65jniJ- 
uon to £75miUion. 

He said the King 


was 


designed for something below 
the level of the AOR, 
although he pointed out that 
it carries more stores at 
higher speed. He dearly 

hopes that, were the Ministry 
to decide that the AOR is too 
expensive, his design will be 
considered as an alternative. 

Any orders will be built at 
the Govan shipyard, 
Clydeside, or at Wearside, Co 
Durham. 

British Shipbuilders has 
also briefed the Australian, 
New Zealand and United 
States navies on the sew 
design. 


Decline in 
meat sales 
reversed 


By Oar Agriculture 
Correspondent 

Confirmation that ft* de- 
cline in wmi rating in Britain 
has been reversed came in 
figures released yesterday by 
the Meat and Livestock 
Commission. Total meat con- 
sumption last year was 2.7 
per cent higher than in 1984 
and sales of red meat were np 
by 3.8 per cent. 

British consumption was 
about three million tonnes of 
meat, the highest figure since 
1979 

The biggest increase was 
for beef and veal, up by 6 . 5 
per cent to 1JHUMX) tonnes. 
Poultry sales were also im by 
3.6 per cat and pork by 3 
per cent. Although consump- 
tion of mutton and lamb was 
down, sales of home-prod need 
lamb increased by 2 per cent. 

The claim that tbe down- 
ward trend had been 
stemmed, first w a d e in the 
■autumn, had been disputed by 
vegetarian organizations. Bet 
Mr Keith Robots, the cam- 
BUStiw chairman, said yes- 
terday that the figures 
disposed of "tbe fictitious 
claims of vegetarian 
expansion**.

Thousands of deaf and

could be given the chance of 
a normal education if the 
National Health Service were 
to provide a comp re hensive 
rather than patchy supply of 
radio hearing aids, a study 
commissioned by ministers 
says. 

Radio hearing aids, where 
for example a teacher uses a 
radio microphone whose sig- 
nal is picked op by the child's 
hearing aid, work in class- 
rooms far better than conven- 
tional aids. 

Despite their effectiveness, 
a third of radio aids are 
provided by charities or are 
bought by parents. 

The survey found that 
about 3,300 children had 
access to radio aids, which 
cost between £500 and £1.200 
each, butif the health service

Ministers 
in the 
fast lane 


From Ian Murray 
Jerusalem 

Israelis are being asked by 
police to report government 
ministers 1 ' cars if they notice 
them speeding. 

The request comes from the 
head of the National Traffic 
Police, Assistant Commander 
Eitan Ben-Yehoshna, after a 
motoring magazine recorded 
that every minuter using the 
main motorway between Tel 
Aviv and Jerusalem one 
morning was travelling at 
least 11 mph oyer the speed 
limit. 

The magazine Auto is 
campaigning for an increase 
in speed limits above the 
present national ceiling of 90 
kilometers per hour (56 mph). 

Armed with a radar gun, it 
staked oat the road one 
Sunday morning when minis- 
ters who live in Tel Aviv were 
bound to be on their way to 
the Knesset in Jerusalem. 

Of the 11 who took the 
road with their chanffears, 
the fastest, appropriately 
enough, was the Energy 
Minister, Mr Moshe Shahal, 
roaring past in his Volvo 240 
at more than 86 mph - some 
30 mph over the limit. 

Not much slower was the 
Police Minister, Mr Haim 
Bar Lev, whose Peugeot 505 
was docked at over 79 mph. 
The slowest, again appropri- 
ately, was die Health Minis- 
ter, Mr Mordechai Gar, in 
bis Volvo 240 travelling at a 
relatively modest 67.5 mph. 
The average speed of the 
ministers was nearly 76 i«ph- 

Mr Shahal has refused to 
accept the test as accurate. 
His driver, he said, has 
orders to obey the speed 
limit. Mr Bar Lev has in the 
past asked unsuccessfully for 
the speed limit to be raised. 

Tbe assistant commander 
agrees with the m a g azin e that 
it is time to raise the speed 
limit ou motorways. 

His figures show that last 
year 16 per cent fewer 
speeding tickets were issued 
than in 1984 while there were 
3 per cent fewer road acci- 
dents and 9 per cent fewer 
fatalities.

Chaos in the Philippines election count 












About 200 people protested at the presence of Senator Richard Lagar. left, chief US observer of the Philippine

Spy swap 
expected 
today 


From Frank Johnson 
Berlin 

It is believed that Mr 
Anatoly Shcharansky, tbe 
Jewish dissident held by the 
Soviet Union, will reach the 
West today, but it is still not 
known if be will walk to 
freedom across the Glienicke 
Bridge- 

On the eve of the highly- 
publicized East-West prisoner 
swap, there seems little doubt 
that the 10 others involved in 
the exchange — five captured 
spies from East and West 
respectively — wfll be re- 
leased at the bridge. Their 
names are still unknown to 
the rest of the world. 

Yesterday, American offi- 
cials told the West Berlin 
police to order the caravans 
of waiting television crews 
and cars of news agency 
reporters, working in shifts, 
several yards back from 
where they bad been parked 
on the road leading to the 

bridge. 

This apparently high-hand- 
ed action was constitutional 
because the area is legally the 
USoccupauon zone.Reports 
circulated that Mr 
Shcharansky’s wife, Mrs 
Avital Shcharansky, had 
arrived in Bonn.

R uncle apologizes to 
Indian churches 


By Michael Hamlyn 
The Archbishop of Canter- formed when the country's 


bury yesterday began a series 
of addresses in India by 


Anglican churches joined 


with some Nonconformist 


£ 


apologizing to the clergy of churches to create a unified 
Bombay for the Church of denomination, which was iu 


England's “rigid view of (act outside the Anglican 


Anglicanism". 

Dr Robert Runcie said be 
hoped His visit would show 
where the true succession of 
the Anglican tradition lay — 
“within the wider unity of 
the church of North India 
and not in any so-called 
continuing Anglican group or 
congregation". 

The Church in India was 


communion. 

Dr Runcie said he regretted 
that tbe united Indian 
churches had never been 
represented at the decennial 
Lambeth conferences because 
they were technically not in 
the Anglican Church. 
“ . . We sadly lacked the 
wisdom, experience and testi- 
mony of Christians from 
India." 


Pope tells 
priests not 
to 


From Michael Hamlyn 
Pune 

The Pope wound up his 
lO-day tour of India with a 
stern warning to his flock 
against involvement in “lib- 
eration theology". 

Though he did not men- 
tion the subject by name he 
gave a clear instruction to 
seminarists in the course of 
an open-air Mass in Pune not 
to dabble in secular politics. 

The liberation theologians 
believe that the Church has a 
role in bettering the condi- 
tions of its people by political 
action, in addition 10 the 
more usual religious activi- 
ties. 

As a resuh priests in Latin 
America and other Third 
World countries have been 
active in leading industrial 
disputes, and political pro- 
tests of all sorts. Even in 
India, priests have been 
deeply involved in disputes 
affecting fishermen in the 
southern and heavily Chris- 
tian state of Kerala. 

He told students at a 
Roman Catholic seminary in 
Pune yesterday: “The 
Church's ministers arc not 
called to play leadership roles 
in the secular spheres of 
society." 

After telling the young men 
training to become priests 
that they were called to be 
spiritual leaders “dedicated 
to prayer and the word of 
God," he said: “India has 
many competent lay men and 
women to attend to these 
matters." 

At the army-dominated 
town of Pune - which is how 
they spell Poona these days - 
the Pope’s meeting was 
attended by about 30.000 
people, close to the Aga Khan 
Palace, where Mahatma Gan- 
dhi was imprisoned by the 
British, and where his wife. 
Kasturba, died. 

Pune is also noted as the 
place where Bbagwan Shree 
Rajneesh set up his first 
ashram to preach hi$ gospel 
to well-heeled Westerners, It 
is also the place where 
Naiuram Godse. Mahatma 
Gandhi's assassin came from. 

Mr Godse's brother Gopal 
has been a leading light in the 
Hindu Mahasabha which was 
prominent in leading protests 
against the coming of the 
Pope. However, not only in 
Pune but elsewhere in the 
country loo. the 14-ciiy tour 
has passed off virtually with- 
out incident. 


Walesa 
trial 
maybe 
put off 


;e 


Gdansk (Reuter) - The 
Solidarity leader. Mr Lech 
Walesa, will appear for trial 
on criminal slander charges 
here today but there is 
mounting speculation that 
the case may immediately be 
dropped or adjourned. West- 
ern diplomats said. 

Government officials have 
indicated that the authorities 
are anxious to avoid the 
embarrassment of a hearing 
lasting several days which 
could result in Mr Walesa 
being jailed for up 10 two 
years if convicted. 

The charges were brought 
after parliamentary elections 
last October when Mr Walesa 
issued voting estimates com- 
piled by his banned free trade 
union which were sharply 
lower than official figures. 
Election officials in several 
regions complained they had 
been defamed.

Uproar marks opening 
of Italy’s biggest 
trial of Mafia bosses 


From John Esrit 
Rome 

The biggest trial ever 
staged against the Mafia 
opened yesterday in a special- 
ly-built maximum security 
court adjoining Palermo’s 
mam jail, amid protests from 
me accused and cries of “get ‘ 
. out to cameramen. 

After a few minutes, order 
was restored and the court 
proceeded to call the names 
of the 474 defendants, who 
nave to answer for 450 
crimes including 97 murders. 

One of the killings was that 
Carl ° Alberto 
VSJ!p J*J ucsa in September. 

The general was sent to 
Palermo as Prefect with a 
bncl 10 crush the Mafia, but 
be had little back-up from 
Rome. 

Other charges covered by 
i he 8.607 pages of indictment 
relate to inter-gang warfare 
over the past 10 years, which 
was won by the “family** of 
f'orlcone. south of Palermo. 
They were battling for con- 
trol of drug trafficking from 
the Far East via Sicily to 
North America. 

By way of illustrating the 
accusations of conspiracy, 
extortion and kidnapping, the 
indictment describes the use 
of Swiss banks for laundering

Palermo Mafia trial. 

dirty money and outlines the 
part allegedly played by the 
two Salvo cousins, Christian 
Democrat supporters who 
had the government conces- 
sion to gather taxes in much 
of Sicily. 

Of the 474 accused. 121 arc 
in hiding. Among those 
missing arc Signor Michele 
Greco, known as “The Pope” 
and allegedly head of the 
Mafia “commission” control- 
ling the Palermo province 
families: Signor Salvatore 
Riina of Corieonc. and their 
ally. Signor Nino Santapaola. 
described as boss of Catania. 

Those in jail include Signor 
Luciano Lcggio. the legend- 


ary boss of Coricone. Signor 
Tommaso Spadaro and Si- 
gnor Pippo Calo. who last 
Friday was given a six-year 
prison sentence for receiving 
stolen goods in a separate 
trial in Rome. 

Many of the alleged leaders 
of the “Cosa Nostra” — our 
thing, as it is called by the 
mafiosi themselves — started 
with cigarette smuggling, then 
adapted their organizations 
to drug trafficking. 

Much of the investigators' 
information has been con- 
firmed by the. confessions of 
former mafiosi such as Signor 
Tommaso Buscctia and Si- 
gnor Salvatore Contomo. 

Besides building the special 
octagonal courtroom, with 30 
separate cages for different 
groups of prisoners, the 
authorities have brought 
2.000 police to Palermo for 
extra security. Two reserve 
judges have been sworn in. 

Signor Bctlino Craxi. the 
Prime Minister, said in • a 
statement to mark the trial: 
“The Mafia has lost the 
challenge which it had 
launched against the top level 
of the state with terrible 
massacres and assassinations 
of illustrious and courageous 
men."

Chalker to open talks with Kampala regime 


From Charles Harrison 
Nairobi 

Mrs Lynda Chalkcr.rhc 
newly -appointed Minister of 
State at the Foreign Office, 
with responsibility for Afri- 
can affairs, is to visit Kampa- 
la tomorrow to make official 
contact with President 
Museveni 


Mrs Chalkcr’s trip has been 
arranged at short notice and 
dearly results from an assess- 
ment of the situation after 
the January 25 takeover by 
Mr Museveni’s National Re- 
sistance Army (NRA). 

She will be accompanied 
by Major-General Anthony 
Pollard, who was appointed 


some months ago to head a 
British team to advise the 
Ugandans on military mat- 
ters. especially the training of 
a new army. 

Mrs Chalker yesterday met 
the heads of British missions 
from a number of African 
countries. She has also been 
meeting Kenyan leaders since 


arriving in Nairobi 
General Pollard's appoint- 
ment was made partly ai the 
suggestion of President Moi 
of Kenya, who chaired the 
lengthy peace talks between 
Mr Museveni's group and the 
former military council last 
year. President Moi made no 
secret of his anxiety to sec 
calm return to Uganda. 


Air cage 
used to 
rescue 
47 skiers 

From Alan McGregor 
Geneva 

A new- system for rescuing 
skiers and tourists stranded 
in cable cars in mid-air has 
been successfully used for the 
first time at Grachen. near 
Zermatt. 

In little more than an hour 
47 people were brought down 
safely from a dozen cars 
stalled because of power 
failure along a cableway high 
above the mountainside. 

A large lightweight cage 
with one side open was 
lowered from a helicopter on 
to the cable above a stranded 
car and eased down the cable 
until it surrounded the cabin. 
The occupants stepped across 
into the cage, which was 
lifted away by the helicopter. 

Lowering a rescuer on a 
line from a helicopter to a 
stranded cabin’s door, a risky 
operation in a gusting wind, 
will no longer be necessary. 

The new system was de- 
vised by Air Zermatt whicb 
operates mountain rescue he- 
licopters. 

©INNSBRUCK: About 50 
skiers were rescued by heli- 
copter from a stalled cable 
car at Landeck in western 
Austria on Monday after 
being stranded for more than 
an hour (AP reports). No one

necklace executions carried 
out by self-styled “people's

UK troops 
rebuked 
by Lisbon 

From Martha de la Cal 
Lisbon 

Disciplinary action has 
been taken against two Brit- 
ish soldiers involved in an 
incident with civilians in the 
Portuguese town of Abrantes 
on January 25. Three towns- 
people were injured, one ol 
whom is suing for damages. 

The delegate from 
Abrantes. Senhor Francisco 
Fernandes, complained in 
Parliament that violent hooli- 
ganism by British soldiers 
was becoming more and 
more frequent, fanning anii- 
Brilish sentiment. 

The two soldiers are pan of 
the Nato brigade stationed at 
the Santa Margarida camp. 
British military authorities 
have put Abrantes out of 
bounds to the regiment of 
Gordon Highlanders to 
which they belong. 

The British Embassy in 
Lisbon said reports that the 
townspeople were “savagely 
attacked by 34 British sol- 
diers contained several inac- 
curacies and much exagger- 
ation”. 

Thirty-four soldiers had 
been given leave to visit 
Abrantes. but only two .were 
involved in a scuffle with 
Portuguese. When the group 
tried to board a bus back to 
camp there were further 
clashes. The Portuguese po- 
lice had intervened but had 
brought no charges.

Mulroney’s standing 
damaged by series 
of Cabinet blunders 


THE TIMES TUESDAY FEBRUARY 1 1 1986 





Only 17 months after 
winning the biggest electoral 
mandate in Canadian history, 
the Conservative Govern- 
ment of Mr Brian MuJroney 
is in deep trouble. This is 
despite the fact that, by any 
objective yardstick, it has not 
performed at all badly. 

A recently published Gal- 
lup poll showed that the 
Tories had slipped behind the 
Liberals, the main opposition 
party, in papular support. It 
indicated that 3S per cent of 
Canadians favoured the Lib- 
erals. 37 per cent the Tories 
and 24 per cent the left-wing 
New Democratic Party. 

Only eight months earlier 
the Tories had a 54 per cent 
popularity rating, more even 
than on election night. Sep- 
tember 4. 1984. when they 
captured 50 per cent of the 
vote in an overwhelming 
victory over the Liberals, 
who Had held power almost 
continuously since 1963. 

Another poll, by the Que- 
bec Institute of Public Opin- 
ion. was even more ominous 
for the Conservatives. It 
showed them trailing the 
Liberals in Quebec province 
by 54 per cent to 23 per cent. 
It is widely acknowledged 
that the Conservatives have

against 17 for the Liberals. 
The latest poll results, 
though, suggest that this may 
have been a temporary phe-

Quebec's disenchantment 
can be traced to Mr 
Mulroney's failure to recruit 
top-calibre people from the

India: 

Jasbir Singh 

By Caroline Moorehead 

Jasbir Singh is a Sikh 
preacher in his early thirties, 
married and foe father of one 
son. Until 1984 he lived in 
Dnhai and worked as a 
businessman. He is now in 
prison in northern India, held 
indefinitely and without trial, 
the victim of a series of legal 
misfortunes and false accusa- 
tions. 

In the autumn of 1984 
Jasbir Singh, who is a 
nephew of foe late reiigioas 
leader of foe Sikhs, Sant 
JsrnaS Singh Bindramvak, 
came to England to help set 
up foe International Sikh 
Youth Federation, a predomi- 
nantly refigjous and charita- 
ble organization. Jasbir 
Singh fo not a man of politics, 
and is not known to have any 
finks at aO with political 
organizations in India. 

He returned to Dnhai via 
Pakistan, where he attended 
celebrations to mark the 
anniversary of foe birth of the * 
founder of foe Sikh reSpon. 
When, some months later, he 
wanted to return to Britain, 
be was refused entry at 
Heathrow. 

Faffing also to obtain 
permission to return to Du- 
bai, he found himself forcibly 
sent to India, where he was 
held In foe Red Fort, and 
tried on a number of charges 
concerning activities a pintf 
tite state, all of which were 
subsequent ly either 
or suspended indefinitely. No

saying that Washington had

to their differences. 

“Our Government has not 
done enough to support the

ter said, referring to peace 
efforts by the four-nation 
group. Mr Carter said he 
opposed President Reagan's 
policy of financing rebels to 
overthrow the Sandinista 
government.

of Mexico. Colombia. Pana- 
ma and Venezuela, has advo- 
cated the demilitarization of 
foe region. 

“This effort should be 
exhausted first before seeking 
a military solution.” 

Mr Carter said that Ms 
Reagan's policies were gain- 
ing the support of US 
Democratic Party members 
because of the conflict be-

at the village of Mukoraero, about SO 
miles from Kampala ou the Hoima 
Road. No one in the village spoke 
English or Swahili; they were either old 
men, women or children. They were very 
poor, dressed in rags. 

A few miles further, at Ramata, under 
a huge mango tree in the. middle of the 
village, lay another pile of more than SO 
skulls. Children were playing in the dust 
beside them, quite unconcerned. One of 
the villagers, Joseph Mayanja, said there 
were many more in a pit nearby. 
“Thousands and thousands'*, as he put iL 
“We keep them there to remember, what 
happened", be said. 

No one will ever know exactly what 
happened here or just how many died. 
This is the Luwerd triangle where, from 
1981 to 1984, Obote's army adopted a 
policy of genocide against the Baganda 
villagers. Few who know the area put the 
total at less than 200,000 dead. Some put 
it higher, taking into account those who 
were forced on to trucks and disappeared 
in army barracks or were massacred and 
dumped in the swamps, or those who 
fled into the bush and died of starvation. 

To leave the dead unburied breaks 
every taboo. To collect and stack the 
bones in the open shows the depth of 
trauma this peasant society has been 
through. 

The journey from Kampala to Masindi 
is like a cross-section of Uganda's agony 
over the past 20 years. It is not simply a 
horror story, though horror stories 
abound. The British works manager who 
lent me his Land-Rover told of one 
outside his own front door. When Tito 
Okello's troops realized they were beaten 
in Kampala on January 25, some of them 
turned on the political prisoners in 
Luzira prison and murdered them. They 
also butchered the women and children 
camped at the prison gates. Their 
mutilated bodies, about 100 in all, were 
thrown into a swamp near the Briton's 
house. One of the expatriates had taken 
pictures of them to sell to a British news- 
paper. 

1 was told that the direct road to 
Masindi was still unsafe. Roving bands 
of Uganda National Liberation Army 
troops, soldiers of the former regime, 
were still marauding along it and a Land- 
Rover would have been a gift to them. So 
I took the road to Hoima and cut across. 

The tarmac runs out about 30 miles 
from Kampala. At one time the road to 
Hoima was well kept, with two lanes. It 
was made of raurrum — red gravelly 
earth, graded and rolled, on which one 
could keep up a steady 50m ph in good 
conditions. Now it could hardly be called 
a farm track and the Land-Rover bad to 
stay in second gear much of the way to 
negotiate the pot-holes and ruts. 

On each side of the track in the lush 
green vegetation are deserted huts and

villages. Roots have been ripped ofT and 
windows torn out. The plots surrounding 
them are overgrown. Many of the trading 
centres stand empty and broken.' At 
Kiboga, the largest centre on the way to 
Hoima, a large modem hospital lies 
abandoned. 

In August after the coup which 
toppled Obote, people had started to drift 
back to their homes, but then the killings 
started again. Fighting broke out between 
the National Resistance Army and 
government troops; the latter blamed the 
villagers and tortured or killed them. The 
survivors were recruited into the NRA. 
One villager said: “Ail the young men are 
in the NRA or dead", 



One villager said: ‘All the 
young men are in the 
National Resistance Army 
or they are dead 1 


At Masindi, the NRA has set up its 
headquarters at the old district 
commissioner’s house which looks out 
on the rugby field. Fifteen years ago 7 
Masindi had a rugby side made up of ex- 
patriate teachers and aid workers, and 
the posts are still there. 

The Masindi Hotel has had no tourists 
for 10 years, no electricity for a year and 
no telephones for three years. It was 
looted in 1979, in 1984 when the town 
was briefly occupied by the NRA and the 


locals sacked it in the chaos, and in July 
last year by the Okello troops. 

The manager, however, insisted that I 
filled in the forms and paid $50 for a 
dark room with no water. He said he had 
been trained in France and was an expen 
on champagne. There is not much call 
for his knowledge in Masindi The town 
survives as a large village. Only a radio 
at the post office maintains contact with 
the outside world. It was an administra- 
tive centre but, since administration has 
collapsed, it serves no purpose. Most of 
the shops were deserted but there was 
said to be petrol at one station. The at- 
tendant could not be found. 

Mr David Trayefuza, commander of 
the NRA western brigade, is a gentle, 
confident young man who had studied 
law at Makerere and was a police cadet 
before joining the NRA. He was doing a 
tour of his front line positions and asked 
me to join him. 

It is difficult to remember that the 
NRA is. now the government army; its 
soldiers, men and women, still have the 
easy camaraderie of a guerrilla band. 

Mr Tinyefiiza — it is a civilian army 
and the officers hold no rank — is greeted 
with snappy salutes at his front Ime but 
chats easily with his men. Not all have 
uniforms, some are in tattered clothes 
and some are barefoot but they are 
extremely well drilled and disciplined. A 
western journalist with experience of 
many African troops described them as 
the best array in Africa. 

Last week he watched astounded as 
they advanced through a hail of machine- 
gun fire and an artillery barrage to attack 
the UNLA at Mbale. The officers stood 
screaming orders as the young fighters, 
some of them less than 10 years old, 
moved forward, one group giving 
covering fire as another crawled forward 
on their bellies, all singing their victory 
songs as they went. The professional 


British army-trained UNLA soldiers 
cracked and fled. 

Just north of Masindi the front line 
soldiers sat and waited, fanned out each 
side of the road at a dip in the track. 
They were clearly exhausted but 
crouched in the elephant grass, checking 
and rechecking their weapons. They had 
had skirmishes earlier in the day but the 
silence in the dose afternoon heat was 
broken only by bird calls. 

They knew they were heavily outnum- 
bered by the UNLA force further up the 
road which also had artillery and other 
heavy weapons. But Mr Tinyefiiza said 
he would attack as soon as he was ready. 
The NRA had already recruited four

captured UNLA soldiers and put them 
into the front line. “Do you trust them?” 
I asked. The commander shrugged. “We 
know how to use them", he said. Had it 
been the other way round the men would 
have been dead. The UNLA does not 
take prisoners. 

Back at Masindi, 302 other prisoners 
were being kept at a tsetse fly control 
centre. Fifty were paraded for me and 
eight stepped forward to identify them- 
selves as Uganda National Rescue Front 


men. The UNRF was the west Nile 
guerrilla group, made up of the remnants 
of Idi Amin's army which was defeated 
in 1979. They had fled to Sudan and then 
tried to fight back by raiding across the 
border. They made up 700 of the 1,000 
troops in Masindi when the NRA 
captured it two weeks ago. 

In July they had been summoned by 
Tito Ofcdlo to come back to Uganda. 
Publicly it was said that they had been 
brought back by Okello in July, straight 
after the coup, and rearmed. This 
sugfi fts ts that the coup leaders overthrew 
Obote not to bring peace and reconcilia- 
tion as they claimed, but to bring back 
the former Amin soldiers and unite them 
with UNLA to defeat the NRA. The 
peace t alks in Nairobi between the NRA 
and the military council, which ended at 
Christmas, may have been no more than 
a sham to buy time to get the Amin sol- 
diers into position. 

Major Felix Moyima, the only cap- 
tured UNRF officer, would not speculate 
on this but he said: “At one time the 
UNRF and NRA used to fight side by 
side against Obote. What I don't 
understand is that something changed 
and we were brought back to face the 
NRA. It was our leaders who took the 
decision. I was told that if we tried to 
join the NRA they would kill us" 

A tall tough soldier from Madi, west 
Nile, Major Moyima was recruited into 
the Kings African Rifles iu 1960 and had 
been a professional soldier, until 1979. 
Now he said be just wanted peace and an 
agreement with the NRA so he had 
surrendered to it. The NRA said it 
trusted him and bad put him up at its ex- 
pense at the hotel He was free to go 
home or join them, it said. 

Significantly, four of the six UNLA 
officers captured were from the west 
They had nowhere to run to so they had 
thrown themselves on the mercy of the 
NRA. They, too, were being houSfed in 
the hotel even though the NRA might see 
them as double traitors, since it is 
primarily made up of westerners. 

ne of them, Augustine 
Kamanyire, a young lieutenant, 
said he' had simply served the 
country by being m the army. 
“We were just trying to protect people", 
he said dejectedly when I asked him 
about the bones in the villages. 
“Discipline had completely disintegrated 
in the UNLA." You have the impression 
the UNLA -committed atrocities? “Yes, 
they happened, but a junior officer could 
say nothing to the soldiers. Especially if 
you are from the west and you criticized 
them, they said you were an NRA 
supporter. If I compihined to the senior 
officers they did nothing. They supported 
their soldiers in what they did." 

In Masindi that night there was a 
disco, the first one in living memory. 
The youth of the town turned out but 
danced in an inhibited, restrained way as 
if they were out of practice. Their 
happiness, nevertheless, was palpable. In 
a dark open-air courtyard under a 
brilliant night sky they swayed to Bronski 
Beat and the Thompson Twins. 

Among the dancers were young NRA 
fighters, their guns strapped to their 
backs, many dancing together. They 
made no attempt to move in on the local 
girls and there was no bar so no one got 
drunk. I remember a similar dance in 
1971 soon after Amin took over. The or- 
ganizers had ejected a drunken army 
major who was causing trouble. Within 
minutes he had returned with his men 
and started shooting. The dance hall had 
emptied. - Ever after, the arrival of 
soldiers at a dance marked its end. What 
a different army this is.

Starting a transatlantic cut-price airline was a bumpy flight for the founder 


Flying with a wing and a prayer 


Randolph Fields, the Ameri- 
can-bom founder of High- 
land Express. Britain's latest 
cut-price transatlantic airline, 
can trace his fascination with 
flying precisely to when he 
was nine and newly-arrived 
in England from California. 

He was in Cambridge with 
his mother, a philosophy 
post-graduate, and wanted to 
fly back to be with his father 
in Los Angeles. 

Highland Express, the 
launch of which was an- 
nounced yesterday, starts op- 
erations m June after three 
years' planning ft is only one 
of several airlines he has tried 
launchingBut it was thoughts 
of the young “rucksack" 
market that led him to the 
Virgin Entertainment group 
and its enterprising founder. 
Richard Branson, who invest- 
ed £1 million. Vii-gjn-Adamic 
took off in June 1984 with 
Fields aboard as chairman. 

It proved a bumpy ride, 
however. There were board- 
room battles. his 
shareholding was beaten 
down from 50 to 25 per cent, 
and Branson took over. 

Ironically, he is helping 
launch Highland Express 
with the pay-off. exactly 
£1.730.512. He denies that he 
is now going to take on his 
former colleagues, but he will 
still • undercut Virgin 
Atlantic's prices. His top 
price, for a single economy 
ticket during summer week- 
ends. will be £169. Virgin 
charges £189. 

Fields is 33. rather round 
and boyish, and disarmingly 
droll when it suits him. 

Hippy friends from the 
1960s would not recognize 
.him. At 13 he was a flower 
*.hild in a commune in the 
Ball's Pond Road. Hackney. 

Wuhou qualifications, he 
seems lu have talked his way 
into University College. Lon- 
don. where he studied philos- 
ophy. followed by law at the 
Polytechnic of Central Lon- 



Ready 

don: a legal problem with his 
■flat got him interested. A 
barrister by 1980. he then 
established a profitable prac- 
tice between London and Los 
Angeles in commercial insur- 
ance litigation. 

Field really started in the 
airline business after the 
collapse of Laker, as a 
disgruntled consumer who 
thought he could do better. 

After six months with 
Virgin, he returned to a cool 
reception at his law practice. 
His associates left, taking 
diems with them. 

He has since rebuilt his 
business acting for American 
Railroads. Yet henceforth 
everything takes second place 
to running Highland Express, 
his own show at last. 

Bui without Branson's 
money it has been a struggle. 
A year ago the CAA praised 
his scheme, then turned him 
down on financial grounds. 
At his CAA financial hearing 
on January 30. he pul up £4 
million from his own pocket, 
small investors and various

A natural 
recipe 
for food 

Down in Ambridge. radio home 
of Britain's most famous farming 
family. Tony Archer has har- 
vested his first crop of organicai- . 
ly-growu carrots. No doubt his - 
progress is being closely watched . 
by a fellow farmer, the' Prince ol - 
Wales, who has expressed a. 
keen interest in chemical-free 
crops. 

The fertilizer suid pesticides 
which have become an accepted . 
pan of modem fanning are.' 1 
frowned upon by the organic ' 
movement, which prefers manure 
and other natural methods. 
Crops are rotated to get maxi- 
mum benefit from the soil: 
animals and chickens are al- 
lowed a freedom which their 
battery-bred cousins would envy, 
and are usually fed on a home- 
produced diet. 

Years ago the organic farmer 
would have been regarded as a- 
hannless eccentric. Today the 
eating revolution he has created 
is changing the face of the high ' 
street. 

The chairman of British Or- 
ganic Farmers, Mr Patrick 
Holden, says: “Farming is in a 
state of crisis. Farmers have 
worked to a goal of producing as 
much food as possible without 
consideration for the squander- 
ing of natural resources. 

“In the last year the public 
has become more demanding and 
concerned with quality." 

Despite its growth in popalari-' 
ty. organic produce still accounts 
for less than half of one per cent 
of national output and is not 
expected to reach the 20 per cent 
mark for anorfaer 10 jears. So 
with demand heavily exceeding 
supply, natural food producers 
can ask high prices. 





The cause is being promoted 
by a number of specialist 
organizations including the Soil 
Association, the 1, 000-member 
British. Organic Farmers and its 
sister organization, the Organic 
Growers Association. The latter 
two harness the latest technology 
and marketing methods to give a 
oommerical edge to what hare; 
previously been seen as well- 
meaning amateurs. 

The movement is symbolized 
by the circular symbol of the 
Soil .Association, either in a shop 
window, a farm shop door, or on, 
the packaging of jams or cereals. 

The logo appears on David 
and Janet Mullen's shop in 
Holloway Road, north London, 
and is the only indication from 
outside that the shop is any 
different from the conventional 
butcher a few doors down. But 
the Mullens run one of just a 
handful of organic butchers in 
London. 

They started it with their 
savings three years ago: other 
traders gave them six months, 
but turnover has risen by 700 
per cent. 

“I spent 30 years as a 
traditional batcher", said Mr 
Mullen. “And I became increas- 
ingly fed up with the quality of 
meat 1 had to serve. I don't care 
for some of the ways onr cattle 
and chickens are so intensively 
reared and kept. 

“When I cut np this carcass of 
beef you can see the natural 
brightness of the meat and fat. 
Look at the texture too: it cuts 
like a dream. It also tastes 
totally different because the 
animal has been humanely 
slaughtered- A frightened animal 
sends natural hormones racing 
through its body and this results 
in tougher meat.” 

The shopper probably won't 
find organ chicken or steak in 
the supermarket yet. but may be 
able to buy vegetables.

Scottish grants, but at the last 
hour had to raise an extra £l 
million in the City. 

The job in prospect is no 
easier. Highland Express will 
be the first transatlantic 
service from British regional 
airports for some years. 
British Airways could not 
make it work. Laker went 
bust. Fields is putting his 
faith in low fares: a smalL 
diligent work force of about 
200; a second-hand but 
refurbished Boeing 747 cost- 
ing only $19 million: and 
regional airports whose 
cheaper operating costs can 
knock £20 off a ticket. 

He has probably saved the 
ailing Prestwick from closure. 
For Highland Express to 
succeed, he needs in return 
the loyally of passengers from 
Scotland and the Midlands - 
os much as half the demand 
in Birmingham. 

If he fails, he laughs, he 
will seek consolation in sitk- 
sercemng or join the police 
force.

FASHION by Suzy Menkes 


That was the week t hat was in London: new shops, new faces, new ideas 


V ictor- Edeistein has 
arrived. He showed a 
young and sophisticat- 
ed collection, cut with a light 
hand and bean. Tender 
draping.-diacreet embroidery, 
witty bow trims and some 
very good cutting all softened 
a line that was uncompromis- 
ingly slim. This was modem 
■ couture in the way that it is 
being, shown in Paris. It 
should give Edeistein a bright 
fashion -future under his own 
- name and . in the ready-to- 
wear collection he is design- 
ing for -Norman Hartnell 
from nest season. 

The chic audience, seated 
in the rococo gilded salon in 
the- Cafe Royal . last week, 
included the young . upper 
Scrtist who are Edelstein’s 
clientele. Lady Sarah Arm- 
sirong-Jones^ in shell pink 
lipgloss and gilet, long navy 
coat and flat boxer boots, sat 
beside her father. Lord Snow- 
don (in tweed jacket and 
brown brogues). Also in the 
audience were the dark- 
haired Countess of Snowdon, 
and Lady Solti taking her 
teenage daughter to her first 
fashion show. 

- A riding coat, waisled and 
with a swirl of fabric over a 
slim , knee-length skin, was: 
the .strongest day-time line. 
Waists were defined with 
contrast panels of fabric, with 
niching or insets on perky 
spotted silk dresses or col- 
umns of crepe slithering from 
wide shoulder-line. 

Edeistein shines at night, 
but not with the glitter and 
decoration so often used to 
cover lack of technical skill 
Swaddling bands of draped 
chiffon, in aqua blue, saffron 
yellow or discreet navy, 
received loud applause from 
an audience that understands 
what it pays for. Slim 
strapless. evening dresses, in., 
rich cardinal red or deep 
fuchsia, had three inset pan-, 
els at ' the bade so that the 
skin flared into a mermaid's 
tail of fabric. . 

These grown-up chesses, 
designed on the curve but 
never to cling, seem tailor- 
made for Edelsiein’s most 
glamorous model the Prin- 
* cess of Wales, and the 
audience looked expectantly 
for a royal appearance; Bin

Ye olde American 
in London 

Ralph Lauren, the American designer 
whose inspiration comes from the best 
of old England, is buying up our stalely 
shops. The old Savory and Moore 
pharmacy in Bond Street, lovingly 
restored by Lauren into ' its old 
mahogany glory, is proving to be a base 
for colonization. Ralph Lauren has now 
bought the next-door building which 
.will be knocked through and used to 
bouse an extended range of women's 
wear, the Polo menswear and, ultimate- 
ly, children's clothes and the covetable 
home ftimishrngs. The enlarged shop 
will open after reftirbishraents at the 
end of this year. 

Across the water, the bastion of all 
that is British — Thomas Cook at the 
Madeleine in Paris - has also fallen to 
Ralph Lauren. A major face-lift for the 
one-time home of the Baedeker and 
British Railways is being restored and 
refilled as Lauren's European show- 
place. The Ralph Lauren shop, on two 
floors with a showroom above, is 
scheduled to open during the French 
fashion week in March. 

A more traditonai New York empire 
is building in Britain this year. Tiffany, 
the jeweller of Fifth Avenue, will be 
opened in June by Audrey Hepburn 
(who else?). A midsummer ball will be 
followed by breakfast at Tiffany's (what 
else?).

i Footnote 
; on Benn 


If Mrs Thatcher is losing sleep 
oyer the forthcoming memoirs of 
Jim Prior (Diary yesterday), so 
indeed will . Tony Benn over 
another forthcoming publication. 
Although he might not know it, 
his old spaning partner Michael 
Fool has included a vitriolic 
chapter about him in a book out 
next month, Loyalists and 
Loners. Allow me to bring him a 
taster from a sneak look at the 
book: as leader of the opposition. 
Fool says, he urged Benn in “one 
of our talks in my shadow 
cabinet office" to help Labour’s 
national executive and the partv 
at huge. Foot asked Benn to “call 
cfT the pre-executive caucus 
meetings or at least to mitigate 
their operation, to stop the rigid 
pre-arranged votes which prohib- 
ited real discussion". Foot told 
Benn it would “give us a renewed 
chance to let the executive 
perform its proper function: to 
prepare to fight the Tory enemy". 
In response. Foot claims. Benn 
“shook his head as if to deny that 
any such effective caucus existed 
and when I persisted with the 
charge he persisted with the 
denial. So I called him a liar and 
he got up and left.”

Aden 

Over the past week, mass graves 
have been uncovered in Aden 
which the Yemeni government 
would rather not talk about. 
There have been no guided visits 
for foreign correspondents to the 
scene of the massacres, nor has 
any mention of them appeared in 
October Fourteenth, the Yemeni 
socialist party’s organ of Marxist 
truth. 

The people of Aden are not 
encouraged to talk about them in 
the way that they are when, for 
instance, evidence comes to light 
of the atrocities of the ousted 
president. Ali Nasser Mohamed. 
But they can hardly be unaware 
of the truth. 

At the end of lost week, for 
example, a truckload of bloated 
corpses was driven past the 
damaged naval barracks on 
Steamer Point. The driver was 
clasping a handkerchief to his 
face; arms and legs hung over the 
lony's tail-board: pedestrians 
turned away in horror. 

A few hours later, someone 
discovered an arm protruding 
from the ground in a parking lot 
in the Malla district of Aden.

PHS 


Residents began digging and 
found seven bodies, all appar- 
ently shot in the head. Then a 
smell guided people to a garbage 
tip a few hundred yards away, 
where they uncovered another 33 
bodies. Party officials quickly 
arrived to dear the area. 

The few diplomats who stayed 
on in Aden during Last month's 
carnage already had a grim idea 
of what would be found. Up to 
3,000 people — most of them 
militiamen or party officials - 
had been killed, it was said. Yet 
the hospitals received only 400 
wounded: the first time in recent 
Middle East conflicts that the 
dead have outnumbered the 
injured. 

For the truth is that the new 
Marxist regime has ruthlessly 
liquidated its party opponents, 
every bit as systematically as Ali 
Nasser Mohamed tried to purge 
his enemies on January 13. 

Official guides are happy 
enough to take journalists to the 
lip of Aden's volcanic crater high 
above the Red Sea to show them 
the grisly remains of Ah' Nasser's 
slaughtered opponents. But they 
quickly silenced a party militia- 
men up in the town of Lawdar 
when he tried to tell about other 
acts of butchery. “When Ali 
Nasser’s people had failed, our 
armed elements killed them 
when we found them,” he 
managed to say, before being told 
to shut his mouth. 

An Aden resident said, with a 
fearful sort of respect "We all 
know the truth. But it’s too early 
to look aL" 

When at last the images 
become clear, albeit through the 
refracted vision of South 
Yemen's own tired definition of 
“scientific socialism", a familiar 

E icture will emerge. For the 
utchery of the past four weeks 
within this people's democratic 
republic has provided yet another 
deeply depressing example of the 
failure of an Arab state to 
organize itself into a just and 
humane nation in the post- 
colonial world. 

Publicly, we are supposed to 
believe that the regime of Ali 
Nasser Mohamed was over- 
thrown because of ideological 
imperfections, as exposed at 
October’s third congress of the 
Yemeni socialist party. In reality, 
the reasons were more prosaic. 
The party hierarchy around Ali 
Nasser had begun to fit them- 
selves up with the accoutrements 
of power chauffeur-driven cars, 
free importation of foreign lux- 
uries, tax-free salaries, and body- 
guards more loyal to tribe than to 
party. 

To some extent even Ali 
Nasser's opponents — in particu- 


Why an Arab 
revolution 
devours itself 


lar Abdul Fatah Ismail — shared 
in the good life, settling into the 
spacious old wooden homes of 
British army officers. 

Ali Nasser enjoyed the privacy 
of the former British military 
mess above Steamer Point. In his 
kitchen there were the finest wine 
glasses; he played table tennis in 
the conservatory overlooking 
Ram bo beach between bouts of 
chewing qat, the mint-like Ye- 
meni plant that is used to 
stimulate the energy in the 
stifling heat of the Red Sea. 

Ali Nasser's home, when we 
saw it last week, was equipped 
with an odd array of 
unproletarian goods: fake Louis 
XVI furniture, American-made 
telephones and cassette tapes of 
Tchaikovsky symphonies. 

Yet Ismail's own residence was 
one of the gracious villas built for 
Royal Navy officers on a tree- 
fringed peninsula above die 
harbour. His driveway was Ain 
littered last week with the gutted 
wreckage of modem limousines: 
in his garden were burned wicker 
sofas among foe bougainvillea. 
Up here, talk of foe party’s 
“correctional movement", of 
Marxist sacrifice and loyalty, had 
a quality all its own. 

Within this elite setting, some 
of foe conflicts that surfaced 
during the guerrilla war against 
foe British in the 1960s began to 
re-emerge: arguments not about 
freedom but about uniformity 
and about South Yemen's role 
within the Arab world. Ali 
Nasser, for example, gained 


greater personal support from foe 
Soviet Union because he acted as 
a messenger between Moscow 
and Oman, between the Russians 
and foe Saudis. 

The Russians realized that he 
relied upon the tribes of his own 
province of Abyan for protection, 
while his former colleagues in the 
independence movement — men 
such as Saleh Muslih Qassim, the 
defence minister murdered last 
month, and Salem Saleh 
Mohamed, the politburo member 
likely to become the new dic- 
tator — found themselves increas- 
ingly excluded from the 
privileges and foe prestige of 
political power. 

They resented Ali Nassef's 
flirtation with foe leaders of pro- 
Moscow Palestinian guerrilla 
movements — which is one rear 
son why they turned down Soviet 
attempts to mediate in the civil 
war, efforts which were in feet 
prompted by Palestinians rather 
than by foe Russians. 

Their hatreds were locked into 
foe sterile grammar of doctrinaire 
Marxist thought, itself perverted 
by the artificial way it has been 
grafted on to a tribal, Islamic 
nation. The Yemenis are a 
vibrant, intelligent people, ul- 
timately uninfluenced by foe 
rhetoric of those who rule them; 
and their leaders are cut off from 
their own people. 

This is perhaps why the 
civilian population was compar- 
atively untouched by last 
month's bloodshed. Again and 
ag ain, it transpires, militiamen

San Jose, Costa Rica 
As they have done every four 
years for the last century, Costa 
Ricans have just been to the polls 
to elect a new government 
Although the presidential contest 
was close and hard fought, the 
election was scrupulously honest 
and free of fraud. 

Its long history of democraclic 
elections is only one tradition 
which sets Costa Rica apart from 
its Central American neighbours. 
In 1949 it abolished the army 
and in this decade has declared a 
policy of unarmed neutrality in 
external conflicts. 

While its neighbours have 
spent millions to build up their 
armed forces and have shattered 
their political institutions and 
social fabric through civil wars 
and military coups, Costa Rica 
has quietly constructed an im- 
pressive. stable welfare state. It 
has the highest standard of living 
and largest middle class in the 
region. Health care and education 
are free, paved roads reach into 
mosi areas and many rural 
households have running water, 
electricity, and even telephones. 

Political refugees from trouble 
spots in the Americas have found 
a haven in Costa Rica. In the ear- 
ly 1950s a band of US Quakers, 
opposed to their coun-try’s in- 
volvement in foe Korean war, 
established a still-flourishing 
community on a high Costa 
Rican mountain peak. Today 
most of the political exiles come 
from Nicaragua, frequently buy- 
ing homes in San Jose's most 
exclusive neighbourhoods. 

Until recently Costa Ricans 
took their way of life for granted. 
They smugly considered them- 
selves aloof from foe rest of the 
isthmus. But over the last four 
years. President Luis Alberto 
Monge has dealt with the 
country’s economic crisis by 
accepting $600 million in US 
economic aid in return for an 
increasingly pro-US position in 
regional and domestic issues. 

As a result many Costa Ricans 
now sense that their country is 
slipping from its traditional 
moorings and being pulled into 


Will the man of 
peace triumph over 
Reagan’s war? 


regional conflicts and gradual 
militarization. The evidence in- 
cludes clandestine operations by 
armed Nicaraguan contras, US 
military aid and training for the 
police and the civilian militia, 
and a daily barrage of anti- 
Sandinista stories in foe local 
press. 

For the first time in Costa 
Rita's history, peace was the 
main issue m the presidential 
cont est. Dr Oscar Arias won 
because he vigorously declared 
himself to be foe “peace" 
candidate. 

The divisions between Costa 
Rican public opinion and US 
strategy are clearly drawn. Ac- 
cording to iniblic opinion analyst 
Victor Ramirez, the polls consis- 
tently show that while Costa 
Ricans are overwhelmingly anti- 
communist and anti-Sandmista, 
more than 80 per cent support 
the policy of neutrality, oppose 
recreating an army, do not 
believe foal foe Sandinistas pose 
a threat and do not want Costa 
Rica used as a base for attacking 
Nicaragua, 

In contrast US intentions were 


spelt out last year in a Stale 
, Department drain report leaked 
to the press. It said that a 
militarized Costa Rica “would 
help shift — the political bal- 
ance in our (foe US) favour on 
Nicaragua's southern flank". 

In speeches since his victory. 
Arias has reflected public senti- 
ment by vowing to prevent 
armed contras from using Costa 
Rica and pledging actively to 
lake part in regional rfialngiu- , 

But even as he spoke, anti- 
Sandinista leaders based here 
were trying to improve their 
image with liberals by holding 
talks with both ex-US president 
Jimmy Carter and a delegation, 
from the Socialist International. 
The contras are vowing to end 
their squabbles and form a united 
southern front along foe Costa 
RJcan-Nicaraguan border. 


While this may help them to 
secure US congressional passagi* 
of President Reagan's proposed 
$100 million aid package to foe 
contras, it is certain to malrg 
Arias’s enforcement of neutrality 
more difficult Despite their 
fectionalisn, foe several thou- 


sand contras operating in south- 
ern Nicaragua already have a 
well-developed supply system 
through Costa Rica. They are 
helped by a chain of Costa Rican 
officials, border guards and 
businessmen, backed by foe US 
embassy. 

According to contra and Costa 
Rican sources, the presence of 
the CIA has grown considerably 
in foe last few years and it now 
has a strong influence over foe 
media. According to an Ameri- 
can mercenary, one Ni caraguan 
group runs a terrorist ring which 
plans to “wreak havoc along foe 
bonder" and so create a war 
between Costa Rica and Nicara- 
In foe event of conflict, the 
is on record as pledging to go 
to Costa Rica's defence. 

His other problems apart, 
Arias is certain to face an 
increasingly militant uftra-right. 
In recent months members of the 
right-wing taxi drivers onion and 
the neo-zascist Free Costa Rica 
movement have stoned the 
Nicaraguan embassy and at- 
tacked international peace 
marchers. Free Costa Rica has 
influential supporters, including 
several media executives, and its 
rank and file members have been 
receiving military training in foe 
t’s national reserve 


Roger Scruton 

Science with no 
time for facts 


fired warning shots into the roofs 
of apartment blocks to persuade 
foe population to leave foe battle 
areas of Aden. It was foe party 
men who suffered, just as ft was 
the party men who later claimed 
with deadly inevitability that 
they had saved Yemeni social- 
ism. 

Almost every senior civil 
servant and ministry executive 
was liquidated in foe early days 
of the fighting as Ali Nassef’s 
opponents — unable to utilize 
their own tribal strength m 
Hadramawt and Shabwab prov- 
inces - used foe North Yemeni 
unemployed of the old National 
Front to control foe streets of foe 
capital The wounded followers 
of Ismail were take n up io foe 
hospital at Lahej in foe Radian 
where they lay in the corridors 
guarded by their own heavily- 
armed henchmen. 

In one case, it is said, Ismail's 
men tore a drip-feed from foe 
arm of a badly-wounded sup- 
porter of Ali Nasser whose life 
was saved only by a doctor who 
pushed foe drip into foe man’s 
other arm and told foe gunmen 
they would have to shoot him 
first if they wished to murder his 
patient 

From foe start both sides used 
Ministry of Health ambulances to 
carry militiamen and arms — so 
the vehicles immediately became 
targets. So did medical stafE 
residents of Aden still talk about 
two men wounded in a car 
outside foe Jamahariya hospital 
in Aden — foe old Queen Eliza- 
beth hospital — who both died 
shrieking in the roadway only 
100 yards from doctors who were 
shot at every time they vainly 
tried to help them. 

In the end, Ali Nasser lost 
because some of his leading 
politburo opponents survived 
and because army officers — 
hearing of foe massacre of many 
of their colleagues — placed their 
Soviet-made tanks along foe 
coast road to Abyan to prevent 
Ali Nasser’s supporters reaching 
foe capital. 

The victory over foe man they 
now call “foe great traitor and 
party criminal” is to be 
commemorated in Aden this 
week with a special “martyrs' 
day" at which foe latest version 
of South Yemen's history will be 
defined. 

It will, of course, be a story of 
revolution, of party consolida- 
tion, of a minority plot by former 
trusted colleagues who betrayed 
even their Soviet friends, of foe 
“hidden hand" of foe CIA and 
ultimately of victory consolidated 
by party faithfuls who put self- 
sacrifice before personal gain. At 
least until the next counter-coup. 


Thanks to Keynes, with his 
cocksure advice, his pseudo- 
scientific rigour, his political 
influence, social position and 
philosophical airs, economics 
became the teacher of politics, 
and foe professor of this new- 
fangled subject became the mas- 
ter of those who govern us. 

The mixture of sound common 
sense and tentative social philos- 
ophy which our ancestors knew 
as “political economy" was 
replaced by a brazen science 
whose exponents tend to ad- 
vance. like Keynes, from a 
minimum of observation and by 
prancing steps of a priori 
argument, to conclusions which 
pre-empt the art of government. 
Thence has arisen the breed of 
“economic advisers", promising 
final answers to questions which, 
because they are politicaL should 
never be answered finally. 

When Keynes gave way to 
Friedman this applied a victory 
of common sense over specula- 
tion — and so it would have 
been, had not “Friedman ism" 
been invented, as a simitar 
comprehensive solution, just as 
over-bold. Once again the prob- 
lem of unemployment was 
treated theoretically, with little 
consciousness that the theories 
are both sketchy in themselves 
and more foe consequences of 
political attitudes than the 
“scientific" grounds for them. 
And plain facts which have no 
place in the theory were again 
passed over as irrelevant. 

But consider some of the facts. 
Consider, for example, the de- 
cline of discipline at home and 
school: foe destruction of foe 
core educational curriculum: the 
dwindling ofliteracy: the growing 
contempt for individual 
responsibility and for the ethic of 
work. The net result of this must 
surely be to make a large number 
of teenagers not merely un- 
employed but also unemployable. 

Or consider the bureaucratic 
restrictions on the wage contract; 
the unjust taxation (through 
“social security" payments) 
placed on everyone who wishes 
to hire another, the difficulty of 
dismissing an employee who 
turns out to be useless. The net 
result is that it is often crazy to 
employ someone, even when the 
work is there. Or consider the 
fact that many people do not 
want to work, or prefer to remain 
officially unemployed, while 
collecting tax-free payments for 
casual labour. If you mention 
such facts as a major cause of un- 
employment. socialists will con- 
demn you as a demon, while 
economists will dismiss you as an 
amateur. 

But it is difficult to have 
confidence in economists so long 
as their ardent divisions of 

H on are more like odium 
ogieuni than scientific de- 
bate. At least if economics is a 
science, and can aspire to an 
authority that ail people should 
recognize, whatever their political 
outlook, it is a very young 
science, and one whose conclu- 


sions should never be advanced 
dogmatically nor adhered to 
unconditionally. 

If economists in advisory 
positions behave more like ma- 
gicians than like scientists, it is 
because the power of their £ 
“science" depends, like the power 
of sympathetic magic, on the 
disposition of people to believe 
in it. In which case, their 
scientific pretensions should be 
taken with a pinch of salt. 

No consequence of the sov- 
ereignty of economics is more 
dangerous than the destruction of 
the morality of money. Moral 
sense permits us to transcend 
self-interest and short-sightedness 
for the species' sake. Traditional 
fiscal morality has therefore 
proved more beneficial in the 
long run than the mum bo-jumbo 
that so often drowns its counsels. 
.And if '“monetarism" is appeal- 
ing it is not. 1 believe, because of . 
its scientific credentials, but & 
because of its moral truth. It • 
reminds us that the state, which 
mediates through money in all 
our transactions, is under a duty 
not to tax us illegitimately by 
debasing the coin of the realm. 

When theory defies the moral 
sense, however, it should not be 
listened to. During the 1960s 
economists persuaded themselves 
that the theory of Keynes applied 
not only to the political economy 
of every- nation state but also to 
the “international economy". 
Underdevelopment, over-saving 
and economic stagnation could 
therefore be cured at once, so 
they thought, by “recycling" 
dollars to nations which had 
never shown the slightest ability 
either to invest them wisely or to 
spend them well. Bankers lis-4 
tened to the economists, and the 
result will soon be catastrophic. 

Common morality tells us that 
prudence is a virtue, and that 
trust should neither be exploited 
nor betrayed. It would have 
reminded the banker that the 
dollars which he loaned to 
governments that had not given 
the slightest evidence of their 
probity were not his to lend, that 
he held them in trust, to invest 
wisely on behalf of clients to 
whom he was answerable, and 
that the only security for an 
investment is proof of a return. 

It is preciselv such self-evident 
moral truth that the pseudo- 
scientific language of inter- 
national Keynesianism (“recycl- 
ing”. "pump-priming'', the t 
“world economic order") is < 
designed to obscure. Once the 
economic advisers entered the 
scene and "demoralized" foe 
problem, the meagre store of 
common sense was dissipated 
and madness triumphed ’ in 
“scientific" form. 

We may not be able to to solve 
foe problem of unemployment 
but perhaps we could at least 
understand it were we to refuse 
the terms which economists 
recommend to us and to trust 
insiead the language of morality.

Every now and then there comes 
a technical breakthrough so 
revolutionary that it changes the 
way we live, yet so simple that 
you wonder why nobody thought 
of it before. The submarine, in 
shipping. The Fosbury Pop. in 
high jumping. The tea bag, in 
dram clearance. The credit card, 
in scraping ice off car windows. 
And now a British firm has made 
an equivalent breakthrough in 
the world of holidays — foe video 
vacation. 


Until now. it has always been 
believed that to take a foreign 
holiday you had to go away 
somewhere. Videovac of Chelten- 
ham have challenged this with 
the idea that instead of going 
away on holiday, you can have 
the holiday brought to you. It's 
cheaper, safer and just as 
satisfying, says their PR officer, 
Adrian Wardour-Streete. 

“Here's how it works," said 
Adrian, as we shared a pina 
colada in Cheltenham's trendy 
Lagoon cocktail bar. “You want 
a sunny fortnight on the Costa 
Guapa. But you don't want to 
pay through the nose, you don’t 
want to be surrounded by tourists 
and you don't want lots of greasy 
food. So we bring the sun lamps 
to your house, we put on tapes of 
flamenco music and. above all. 
we supply foe videos for you to 
watch and get you in the mood." 



Arias: at least the coHee 
price is on his side 


In terms of the economy. Arias 
feces a $4.5 billion foreign debt, 
one of the highest per capita in 
foe world. His announcement 
foal he win renegotiate foe terms 
of payment, along with his 
pledges to build 80,000 new 
houses, find 25,000 new jobs 
annually and provide land for the 
landless, are likely to antagonize 
foe US, foe IMF and local 
businessmen. 

But with a number of unpopu- 
lar austerity measures already 
adopted and revenues up thanks 
to rising coffee prices, foe 
economy has improved some- 
■what. Therefore, as in the 
election campaign, Arias’s main 
issues after he takes office in May 
are likely to be peace and 
neutrality.

"Good Lord, no, nothing like 
that. We have specially prepared 
tapes showing hour after hour of 
waves gently coming in on the 
beach, or palm trees blowing in 
the warm wind. It's foe equiva- 
lent of background music, really 
- background scenery. You sit 
there in your own room, basking 
in the heat and the Spanish 
ambiance, yet with ail the home 
comforts you normally miss so 
desperately on holiday. 

“At a stroke we have elimi- 
nated all the things that people 
hate about holidays — the trudge 
to the beach, the battle with 
currency, the surly waiters, and 
above all the dreary travelling. 
Now. at a third of the price, you 
can have all the best things about 
a holiday and none of foe worst. 
When your holiday begins, you're 


already there — not en route to 
Luton Airport!" 

Bui surely the main thing about 
a holiday is actually being 
somewhere else, somewhere 
Joreignand different'/ 

"Don't you believe it." said 
Adrian, as we slid Into 
Cheltenham's trendy Poissonerie 
for some mussels and Chablis. 
“Most Britons hate being abroad, 
they only go for the sun. 
Otherwise, they like it to be as 
British as possible, with Watney's 
and English Spoken Here. And 
what could be more British than 
your own home? We at Videovac 
create the illusion of being 
abroad, but the reality is always 
the one you know and like best. 

“Remember, too. how home- 
oriented people are on holiday, 
always looking for gifts for 
relations, writing endless post- 
candf scrabbling around for 
English newspapers. We remove 
all that anxiety. We buy your 
gifts, write your cards — and have 
the Spanish papers delivered 
every day* I think, quite honestly, 
that you are more aware of 
abroad when you are at home. 
Personally. I'd rather sit at home 
reading Jan Morris on Spain than 
actually go to Spain, which is 
always something of a dis- 
appointment by contrast." 

Videovac’s Spanish holidavs 
«art from £50 for a fortnight. 
Their Fortnight in Australia 
comes at only £40. while their 
most expensive holiday. By 
Steam Train Through Europe 
and Asia, is still only £75. with 
complete video coverage of foe 
route. 

"Jusi imagine steaming all day 
through China." says Adrian, 
then popping down the pub in £ 
the evening to id! everyone ‘ 
where you've been. Marvellous'" 
But does he really think the 
illusion can be maintained in anv 
satisfying way? 

“Listen - we've just spent a 
tovdy hour in France, thanks to 
foe ambiance of the Poissonerie. 
Before that we had a quick half 
hour in the palm-fringed Pacific, 
thanks to the Lagoon. I don’t t

shSnHH^H 1 fCh Vi 9 kers &c deterrent flat will give 

Tndent pro- guarantee in wartime - com- 
gramme of a labour victory 
at the next general election, 
illustrates graphically the risks 
that the Government feces 
. when its unity and resolve fell 
into doubt. The tough 
contractual negotiations and 
the delay in the order of the 
first submarine are not 
damaging to the project in 
themselves. Vickers manage- 
ment would be t ailin g in 
duty if they did not seek to 
secure the best possible guar- 
antees in .. the event - of 
cancellation. But Britain's 
derision at the start of the 
decade to purchase Trident-2 - 
. as the country's next nuclear 
deterrent; remains a sound 
.one - although now un- 
fashionable. The aim of 

- Whitehall should be to make 
cancellation more, not less, 
difficult as the months float 

by- 

Trident-2 is an expensive 
option. It is not, as the 
Government is fond of necall- 
: ing, as expensive as the 
_ Tornado . t aircraft . procure- 
■menL It is true- that it is 
^absorbing only three per cent • 
of the defence budget over the 
procurement period of IS to 17 
years - or six per cent during 
ita peak spending years. But 

- its share of the equipment 
budget ranges from six to II 
per cent and, as the SDP 
argues in yesterday's policy 
document, i twill be swallow- 
ing nearly a thin! of. the 
ministry's new equipment 
funds by around. 1990. • 

So far the programme costs 


plementing not replacing the 

- protective umbrella which is 
held over bur heads by the 
United . States. There are 
those who argue that peace 
has been preserved since 1945 
in spite o£ rather than 
because of, the vast 
accumulation of nuclear 
weapons on both sides. But so 
fer, with the current mix of 
weapons, peace has been 
maimained.To take Britain 
out of the nuclear equation at 
this stage would 'be an 
•irresponsible., leap into the 
dark. 

The argument of foose who 
say that Britain should spend 
the £10bn on - conventional 
forces instead - a popular 
theme in the forces them- 

- selves - is very questionable. 
Conventional forces are in 
relative terms more expensive 
and would add only margin- 
ally to the defensive capabili- 
ties of Western Europe. If 
more conventional troops in 
Europe are requixed.it makes 
more sense for other Nato 

-countries , to provide them, 

leaving Britain to supply the 
next generation deterrent as 
its own unique contribution 
to allied security . 

Another much advertised 
alternative is to retain Polaris 
into the next century, up- 
dating rtrio enable it still to 
penetrate enemy defences - 
perhaps space-based defences? 
One might even develop a 
British successor, founded on 
our knowledge of Polaris .and 
.our own not inconsiderable

estimates' being largely the 
product of inflation. The 
United States estimates are 
unlikely to rise significantly, 
if only because the US 
funding system tempts the . 
administration to ask Con- 
gress for more money than it 
•needs. But £10bn is stjU.a lot 


would fr he cheaper? The four 
Polaris submarines will need 
replacing is the 1990s anyway 
- and the new boats account 
for roughly half of the Trident 
programme's costs. Moreover 
the money expended on 
developing the Chevaline

one knows at present would 
suggest that the 
safestenvironment in which 
to hide one’s deterrent re- 
mains the sea. But estimates 
of how many the Royal Navy, 
would need to have at sea at 
any one time to match the 
deterrent power of one Tri- 
dent submarine, range be- 
tween 300 and 400. Even if 
one could squeeze 80. on to. 
each boat, one is still thinking 
in terms of four boats at sea 
at one time - and more than 
twice as many to main tain 
that kind of perpetual pres- 
ence. 

Cruise missiles moreover 
. would represent again a new 
technology for British Aero- 
' space (despite its enthusiasm 
to explore it) and fresh 
operating techniques for the 
navy. This is not to say that 
either industry or the navy 
would fail to meet the 
challenge. But h makes the 
cruise missile option another 
high risk area - whose costs 
could all too easily surpass 
those of Trident 

Trident-2 endows Britain 
with more capability than it 
actually needs. Its range, the 
dumber of its independent 
warheads, takes this country 
into the next generation of 
nuclear deterrence rather 
more quickly - and less 
equivocally - than the Gov- 
ernment might have wished. 
But by switching with the 
Americans from the original 
purchase of Tridem-1 to the 
more capable Trident-2, Brit- 
ain has retained commonality 
with the United States - 
: sharing tire facilities, and 
Operational experience of the 
superpower in a manner 
which reduces both the 
development risks and the 
maintenance costs of the 
system. The sophistication of 
the missile too gives Britain a 
margin which, with the ad- 
vance of : technology, one 
might come to accept as 
Essential. " V ... 


LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 


Making life easier for disabled 


From Dr Robert IViggiesworth 
Sir, Your Social Services 
Correspondent, Nicholas Tim- 
mins, wrote (January 28 )^houl 
the Government-appointed in- 
quiry into the health service's 
system of supplying artificial 
.limbs' and wheelchairs to the 
disabled. This- committee, 
chaired by Professor Ian McColl, 
raised some very important 
'points in prosthetic medicine. 

The stories quoted in the 
report of considerably delayed 
delivery of limbs and difficulties 
in fitting leave many elderly 
amputees, whose numbers now- 
adays are very large, frustrated 
and demoralised, ending with an 
artificial limb which remains 
unused in the comer of the room, 
not to mention the depression in 
trying to face up to a much more 
difficult lifestyle. 

I think a lot of the trouble here 
is producing limbs which, al- 
though perfect from an engineer- 
ing point of view, are too 
cumbersome, heavy and ungainly 
for an old or frail person to learn 
to use, especially when their 
other limb and body have been 
allowed to lose their use for 
weeks or months in delays and 
frustrations. 

One answer for old and frail 
people is to go back to something 
simpler and lighter in the early 
stages of fitting, something like 
the old pensioners' pylon, made 
in modem fight but strong 
materials. Above all the modem 


unsightly heavy metal pylon with 
its metal frame and its lib-plus 
block of wood rocker should gp. 

Although it is not always 
possible in older people to choose 
a below-knee or through-knee 
amputation, it is easierto learn to 
use an artificial limb with these 
than with an above-knee amputa- 
tion. 

I agree with the report that 
those long journeys of 40 miles 
and more to limb-fitting centres 
cause more harm than often the 
visit does good in many of the 
frailer patients. 

Clearly all is not well and 
improvements must be at- 
tempted. I think it is most 
important to realise that this does 
not always mean spending large 
sums of money and building up a 
larger bureaucracy. The primary 
relationship is between the pa- 
tient, an experienced limb sur- 
geon, an experienced limb 
physician, the all-important limb 
fitter and the physiotherapist. 

I think it is alto vital to rethink 
the service for older persons, the 
majority of amputees these days, 
and concentrate upon speedier 
service and simpler, lighter less- 
complicated limbs in the early 
days and weeks of limb fitting.

The anger of the Bar with the 
government's refusal to offer 
more than a 5 per cent rise in 
barristers’ fees for legal aid 
work in criminal cases has led 
to the unprecedented decision 
to take legal action against the 
Lord Chancellor, Lord 
Hailsham, on the grounds 
that he is in breach of his 
statutory duty to pay feir 
remuneration- What is. -at 
issue in this High Court 
review is not so much any 
particular amount of money, 
but Lord Hailsham’s refusal 
to negotiate and, more gen- 
erally, his resistance to .the 
banisters' wish for an in- 
dependent, though non-bind- 
ing, advisory body on legal 
fees, along the lines operating 
in respect of the pay of 
•judges, doctors, nurses and so 
on. . 

Judged simply by the fig; 
pres for junior barristers 
criminal court earnings on 
which the Bar bases its case, 

the barristers have came 

enough to be disgruntled- An 
independent survey by Coo- 
pers and Lybnuid shows mat 
average earnings .for a c™" 
inal barrister aged 32 to 37 m 
the year jendia* ‘Agrfl 1984 
were between £6,140 nand 
£11880. For a barrister over

count of the extent to which 
such pay has ' &Den behind 
former real levels. On the 
other hand, in the current 
dimate of public expenditure 
and the clear need to mod- 
erate pay increases generally, 
there is an obvious political 
unreality . about "the ; recom- 
mendation' ilk the Cooper and 
Lybnuid - report -> that . self- 
employed- barristers specializ- 
ing in publidy funded 
criminal defence work should 
have their incomes increased 
by between 30 and 40 per 
cent so as to put them- on a 
level with the pay of bar- 
risters employed in the 
government's legal services 

There are, in any case other 
aspects to the barristers’ case 
than those : depicted by. the 
bald figures of. mcomes pro- 
duced in* the .Coopers . '.and 
L-ybtaiid report. For one thing 
they are, as defined by the 
report itself, theoretical They 
asnme that junior barristers 
working in criminal cases 
work on such cases alone. But 
as the. report itself observes, 
many criminal barristers 
cany out mixtures of civil 
and criminal prosecution and 
defence work. Yet, on the 


To assume that a barrister is 
generally employed on only 
one case in a morning when 
he may well be employed on 
more, and to leave out of all 
account supplementary in- 
come from civil work does 
import an air of unreality into 
the argument, and the Bar's 
current claim. ' 

. On the.other hand, it also 
. seemS unreasonably obdurate 
-for Lord. Hailsham to refuse 
further negotiations, standing 
inflexibly on his 5 per cent 
The Bar has a case. It fears 
that the level of junior 
barristers' fees in criminal 
cases will be a deterrent to 
good quality recruitment in a 
legal .field which is of vital 
importance to the the rights 
of a subject accused of 
breaking the law, ;and there 
are said to be signs already of 
. young, barristers leaving this 
side of flte; profession. . 

Even • .toi ■ there is no 
evidence at all of a disinclina- 
tion on the part of young 
graduates to enter the legal 
profession as a whole; with its 
well-known high money and 
status, rewards. If there is a 
case for Lord Hailsham to be 
more flexible, the same ap- 
plies to the Bar. Though tbe 


aeieuec wuȣ government may be 

psumpaon that ihe cnmrnal • parjinjou^ous j n what it pays

incomes in their own npint • courts overall Tharis in part 
(without ^. CTO^subatotion ^ often, the legal 


from dvfl or other fees), the 
report bases its : findings -on 
banisters’ pay expectations if 
all their time were spent on 
criminal legal aid wnk alone. 

Since, however, it is not so 
spent, that fed surely tos to 
be taken into account in 
appraising the suggested 30 
to 40 per cent increase: There 
is certainly force in Lord 
Hailsham’s observation, . m 
his letter to the Chairman of 


profession, by its own restric- 
tive practices, requires over- 
representation in the courts. 

It might help the govern- 
ment to find more money for 
the ill-paid barristers if the 
legal profession as a whole 
were more willing to re- 
appraise its own conventions

Drug addiction 

From Mrs M. NeviUe-RolJe 
Sir, I have been reflecting on the 
sentences passed on Mr and Mrs 
Russell after the tragic death of 
their baby through culpable 
access to Methadone (report, 
February 1). The judge pro- 
nounced sentences-of 10 years 
and seven years-as a deterrent to 
drug abusers. 

Surely the judge has failed to 
understand the effect of mind- 
altering drugs on addicts? To . 
think that long sentences will 
deter other such people is to foil 
to understand the mental illness 
that addicts are suffering from. 
Their perceptions are so distorted 
that they will not be able to draw 
the conclusion the judge wishes 
to present and the prison service 
will be put to vast and pointless 
expense. * . 

. .The judge could have given 


help and hope to many thou- 
sands of young abusers if he had 
imposed a short or suspended 
sentence, with an . obligation to 
attend a clinic. 

The other missed opportunity 
was not to warn social workers of 
the dangers in cases where 
parents are drug addicts. People 
suffering from addiction deceive 
themselves and can easily de- 
ceive others. Extra vigilance from 
all involved in child care is 
urgently required m such cases if 
other tragedies are to be avoided.

Voluntary services 

-From Mr Graham Mather 
Sir, PeterJay’s tetter (February 6) 
on the - future of voluntary 
organisations after GLC abolition 
is totally undermined by the 
misleading evidence be cites 
concerning the derisions of West- 
minster City Council 
Tbe truth is that we have 
offered whole or part funding to 
all ex GLC-funded bodies that 
have applied. Our grants budget 
this year has been increased by a 
massive 62 per cent to £4.4 
million. And those groups who 
did not receive a grant from this 
amount can still apply under a 


new scheme whereby we will 
match “pound for pound” any 
money they can raise from 
private sources. 

This year’s grants policy has 
resulted in significant growth for 
needy groups in Westminster like 
the single homeless. 1 am sure Mi 
Jay would want other London 
boroughs to follow this 
precedent

Saintly relics 

From the Reverend Brian Taylor 
Sir. There is more and stronger 
evidence for the mission of the 
Apostle Thomas in India than 
Michael Hamlyn suggests (Feb- 
ruary 6). However, 3; when the 
crowds have dispersed, he goes to 
St Thomas’s Cathedral, 
Mylapore, Madras, he will be 
shown the saint’s grave - open 
and empty. 

Tbe tradition is that tbe bones 
were taken to Edessa in the third 
or fourth century. Before Edessa 
was stormed by the Turks in 
1144 they were taken to Chios in 
the Aegean. In 1258 they were 
carried to Ortona on the east 
coast of Italy, where they still are, 
in a sarcophagus in the crypt 
beneath the high altar. 

The skull is kept separately in 
a reliquary, and earned in 
procession through the streets on 
the first Sunday in May.

Aerial lessons 

From Mr James Pilditch 
Sir, The Government, we hear 
(report, February 7), is to spend 
£3 milli on on the feasibility study 
of an aircraft that will whisk us 
to Sydney in an hour. If this is to 
see whether there is a market it 
may be good. If tbe study is to 
assess our technical competence 
to create such a plane it becomes 
questionable. 

'Such a study win show, 
presumably, either that we can- 
not do it, or that we can do it at a 
cost we should not afford, or that 
we could do it with others. Logic 
suggests the only practical route 
is the last one. 

If that is so, may we hope a 
partner win be brought in right 
from the start? That, by the way, 
would address the market ques- 
tion as weU as the cost 

The first thing to do after 
Concorde, dare one suggest, is to 
learn tbe lessons of Concorde.

From a great height 

From the Countess of Munsier 
Sir, Apropos Mr Wait's letter 
(Ftoniaiy 4), perhaps I may 

quote from The Herschel Chron- 
icle, written by my grandmother, 
Constance Lubbodc, who was a 
granddaughter of William Her- 
schel 

He (William Hrrscbel) wrote a 
letter to Sir Joseph Banks, as 
President of the Royal Society, 
recommending the name 
~Georgiam Sidus” for the new 
ptanet_ (p.122). 

The name which Herscbd pro- 
posed for the new planet was for a 
short time used in England, but, on 
lhe Continent that su^ested by the 
Prussian astronomer. ■ Bode, was 
considered more a pp ro pria te and 
was soon mtiversaliy adopted 
(p.123). 

Presumably .Bode would have 


pronounced Uranus in the Ger- 
man manner. I never heard it 
pronounced “Urainus” until 
feirfy recently and not by any of 
my family or people I have met 
who have made a study of 
Herscbel's life and work. 

Jo tell you tbe truth I thought 
it was someone's idea of a 
schoolboy joke and, if h amuses 
Mr Wait to pronounce h that 
way, he may, of course, continue 
to do so but I should like to 
know what evidence he can 
produce to show that such 
pronunciation was ever used by 
Herschel

Abuses of aid

From Mr Julian Amery, MP for 
Brighton Pavilion (Conservative) 
and others 

Sir, The contribution made by 
governments and voluntary agen- 
cies to famine and refugee relief 
in the Horn of Africa last year 
has been beyond praise. The 
immediate crisis may be pacing 
but the consequences of mal- 
nutrition and displacrinent of 
peoples will continue for a long 
time. 

Western efforts received ex- 
cellent co-operation from the 
Somali authorities despite the 
illegal occupation of two enclaves 
by the Ethiopians since 1982 and 
continuing land and air raids 
which killed many innocent 
Somali people. Notwithstanding 
the change of regime in Khar- 
toum and a civil war in tbe south 
of the country, Sudan also did 
everything possible to expedite 
assistance to refugees. The worst 
difficulties were over transport. 

Less good will however, was 
shown by tbe Ethiopians. Access 
to Ethiopian harbours was often 
delayed to give priority to tbe 
import of Soviet arms. Irrespec- 
tive of famine, the Mcngisru 
regime pursues its armed inter- 
vention in Eritrea (bolstered 
since December, 1985 by Soviet 
troops) in Tigray and in the 
Ogaden so that only a fraction of 
the transport required has been 
available to move help given by a 
sympathetic international 
community. 

Of human rights violations in 
Ethiopia the most infamous is 
the resettlement programme 
whereby Soviet aircraft are forc- 
ibly moving thousands of Eritre- 
ans and Tigreans to inhospitable 
regions. When the rejected 
French charity, Mededns sans 
FrontiCres, predicted a death-toll 
of 400,000 as a result, it was 
summarily expelled. 

Before any further pledges of 
aid are made to Ethiopia, the 
British Government should make 
it plain to the regime in Addis 
Ababa, as has Mr Chester 
Crocker, of the US Administra- 
tion, that it must improve both 
its handling of assistance and its 
record on human rights. It should 
concentrate hs help on Sudan 
and Somalia, both of which are 
countries with which we have 
historical links and whose eco- 
nomic plight is just as severe as 
that of Ethiopia. 

It is a basic human duty to 
feed starving people, but donors 
have a right to know that their 
generosity is not abused.

Shackle in Nepal 

From Lord Camoys 
Sir, Mr David Alton is bold 
indeed to write such a categoric 
and assertive article, “Speak up 
for these Christians” (February 
I). His recent visit to Nepal 
lasted less than one week so 
perhaps we should not be 
surprised by simple inaccuracies. 
For example, it was the King, at 
the time of his coronation, who 
announced the Zone of Peace 
concept, not the current Foreign 
Minister. 

Mrs Merc, in her letter 
(February 7), makes the vital 
point that Hinduism is an 
important part of Nepalese cul- 
ture. Indeed it is, for it permeates 
the entire social structure and 
behaviour pattern. That is one of 
the reasons why evangelisation 
by any religion or sect is 
prohibited. 

Further, the Nepalese Govern- 
ment is surely as aware as any 
that the very process of 
evangelisation by one religion in 
a country which is already deeply 
imbued with the traditions and 
behaviour of another can cause 
soda! and civil strife. The history 
of the subcontinent is witness to 
that 

One of the tragic results of the 
behaviour of some of the 
Christian Evangelists is that tbe 
work of those other Christians 
who have been happily helping 
the Nepalese with health care, 
education, agriculture etc for 
over 30 years, without trying to 
influence the Nepalese away from 
their traditional beliefs, may now 
be damaged. 

Yours faithfully, 

CAMOYS.

Recovered sounds 

From Mr Arnold Kentridge 
Sir, Mr Steve Race described 
(January 31) the thrill of hearing 
a fanfare played on the “long- 
ritent” trumpet that had beat 
found in the tomb of 
Tutankhamim. This was broad- 
cast by the BBC in July, 1938. 

The. .Tutankhamun trumpets 
had. in feet, been examined by 
Professor Percival Kirby when he 
visited the- Royal Egyptian Mu- 
.seum in 1933. With the assis- 
tance of Dr Engdbacb, the 
Keeper of the Museum, he 
removed the wooden cores de- 


signed to avoid accidental dents 
when the trumpets were not in 
use, and then blew the first 
sounds from the long-silent 
trumpets. 

There was no mouthpiece of 
the kind now used on brass 
instruments, but the mouth ends 
were turned over a ring of wire. 
With this embouchure it was easy 
to produce a fine sound, but only 
one effective note -could be 
produced apart from a weak 
lower note. 

When the BBC first broadcast 
the fanfares to which Mr Race 
refers, they made no mention of 
the feet that a modem mouth- 


piece had been added; after being 
challenged by Professor Kirby 
they admitted that the trumpet 
had not been played in its 
original form. 

Professor Kirby also made the 
interesting inference that as 
“bugle calls'' could not have been 
played on the trumpets, it was. 
probable that military signals in 
Pharaonic times were rhythmic 
patterns on a single note. 

Yours faithfully,

ON THIS DAY 


FEBRUARY 11 1899 

The Philippines were colonized by 
Spain in the 16thcentury. In the 
late 19th c entwy nationalist 
aspirations among the Filipinos 
led to an insurrection and in June 
1898 a republic was proclaimed 
with Emilio Aguinaldo as its 
president When the Spanish - 
American war ended in December 
1898 the Philippines, Puerto Rico 
and Guam were ceded to the 
United States. From the 
beginning the relations between 
the two countries were 
antagonistic and in February 
rebellion broke out The final 
surrender by the Filipinos u>as in 
April 1902. On Jufy 4 1946 the 
Philippine Repubuc came into 
being. 


THE UNITED 
STATES AND THE 
PHILIPPINES 

CAPTURE OF CALOOCAN 
(Through Reuter’s ag ency) 

MANILA, FEB. 10. 
The Filipinos have apparently 
selected Malabon as their base of 
operations in their next encounter 
with the Americans, as they are 
concentrating there in consider- 
able force. At Caloocan many 
ftimll bodies of scattered troops 
are straggling in from the right, 
and others are undoubtedly arriv- 
ing from the northern interior 
provinces. Aguinaldo is reported 
to have established his headquar- 
ters at Malabon for the purpose of 
rallying his forces and attempting 
a decisive coup. 

In order to cover their move- 
ments the Filipinos again opened 
fire on the Kansas outposts last 
night from the jungle. Firing was 
continued for 20 minutes, but 
without effect The Americans 
reserved their Ere until a detach- 
ment of the enemy emerged from 
the bamboo jungle, when a well- 
directed volley sent the Filipinos 
scurrying back under cover. Apart 
from this, there was quiet along 
the entire line. 

The 14th Infantry unearthed 
several tons of Spanish shells 
which had evidently been stolen 
from the Cavite arsenal and 
concealed by the insurgents in the 
vicinity of Paranaque. Fifteen 
cartloads of three munitions have 
already been brought in; also a 
modern naval gun, which is 
believed to have been taken from 
one of the sunken Spanish 
warships. 

LATER 

At 5 minutes past 3 this 
afternoon the Americans made a 
combined attack upon Caloocan, 
and carried the town after a short 
but brilliant engagement. 

At a signal from the tower of 
the Church of de 1a Lome, the 
warship Monadnock. with great 
effect, opened fire on the earth- 
works from the bay with the big 
guns of her forward turret, and 
soon afterwards the Utah battery 
gan to bombard the position 
from the land side. 

The enemy reserved their fire 
until the bombardment ceased. 
They then replied with volleys of| 
musketry fire. 

A littie later, as the Montana 
Volunteers advanced towards the 
jungle, the Kansas Regiment, who 
were on the extreme left, the 3rd 
Artillery meanwhile deploying to 
the right, charged across the open 
and carried the earthworks under 
a heavy fire. The troops engaged 
cheered enthusiastically as the 
enemy fell back. During the fight 
they were supported by the 
artillery posted at the church. 

Tbe Filipinos fought desperate- 
ly, contesting every inch of the 
ground, but they were steadily 
driven back right into the town. 
The line penetrated to the 
Presidencia and hauled down the 
Filipino flag. 

At 5.30 the enemy's sharpshoot- 
ers in the jungle on the right fired 
on the Pennsylvanians at long 
range, but they were soon silenced 
ter a few rounds of shrapneL The 
Pennsylvanians remained in their 
trenches. 

The Filipinos sustained heavy 
loss, being mowed down hbe grass. 
The Americans as they advanced 
burned the native huts. The loss 
on the American side was alight. 

WASHINGTON. FEB. 10 
President McKinley this after- 
noon signed tbe Treaty of Peace 
with Spain. Mr Hay, Secretary of 
State, signed the treaty at the 
same time. 

The President has sent to 
Congress a Message in which he 


“As a consequence of the ratifica- 
tion of the Treaty of Peace with 
Spain the United States will come 
into possession of the Philippines. 
The necessity of speedy communi- 
cation via Hawaii and Guam is 
imperative. Such communications 
should be established in such a 
way as to be wholly under the 
control of the United States 
whether in time of peace or war.” 

After mentioning the feet that 
at present- the only cable commu- 
nication with Manila is through 
foreign countries, and that there 
exists no means of communicat- 
ing with Hawii and Guam accept 
steamer, the Message contmues:- 
u The present conditions should 
not be allowed to continue a 
moment longer than is absolutely 
necessary.” 


Meaningful terms 

From Mr Jim Simmonds 
Sir, The one I rather care for 
concerns the American hostess 
who enquired of her guest, 
having just sat down to dinner, 
"Are you into condi mentation?** 
Yours, 

JIM SIMMONDS.

Sale room 


Romantic call of 
Jacobite glass 


By Garaldine Norman, Sale Room Correspondent 
The Stuart claim on the (estimate £8,000 - £12,000) 

paid by M Kowacek, a dealer 
from Vienna, for a beaker of 


British throne, the most 
romantic of lost causes, was 
extensively recorded on the 
drinking glasses of their loyal 
supporters and examples 
were in strong demand at 
Sotheby's yes today. 

The rarest was the Amen 
glass, so called because its 
trumpet bowl Is engraved 
with the word, surmounted by 
the Old Pretender’s initials 
and his crown and flanked by 
the Jacobite anthem. It sold 
for £14300 (estimate £12,000 
- £15,000); the last Amen 
glass at Sotheby’s made 
£13,750 just over a year ago, 
so there was a modest 
advance in price. 

A Jacobite wise glass on a 
knopped air-twist stem en- 
graved with die usual rose 
ami two buds, symbolising 
the Old Pretender and bis 
two sous, was tinned into the 
type of rarity collectors com- 
pete for by the mrasnal motto 
Turno tempos erit and sold 
for tAJOUO (estimate £1,500 - 
£ 2 , 000 ). 

Two rare Jacobite portrait 
firing glasses made £2£60 
and £3,080 (estimate £2,000 - 
£2^00 each). 

There was a buoyant mar- 
ket for English glass with 
some exceptionally high 
prices, such as £2^10 (esti- 
mate £60 0 - £800) for a part- 
coloured wine glass of about 
1760; the bowl and foot are 
green with a dear stem 
enclosing an opaque twist 
Only five similar glasses are 
recorded. 

The Continental glass was 
less popular and there were 
some major hems unsold, 
such as the Venetian-style 
painted goblet of about 1570- 
1590 which was bought in at 
£9.000 (estimate £12,000 - 
£15,000). 

The top price was £16£00 


about 1810; it is decorated in 
transparent enamel with a 
charming view of Meissen, 
with the river Elbe in the 
foreground. The topographi- 
cal connection was dearly the 
main reason for the high 
price. The glass sale totalled 
£221,650 with 12 per cent left 

Christie’s morning sale of 
British ceramics concentrated 
on pottery together with a 
small section of Worcester 
porcelain. There was a lot of 
strong bidding from America 
and prices were buoyant 
throughout, making a total of 
£146.772 with only 5 per cent 
left unsold. 

The Wedgwood collectors 
were paying for rarity, more 
or less irrespective of the 
charm of the item. A white 
jasper baby, redinmg on a 
green jasper wrap on a violet 
jasper base, dating from 
about 1785, was an extreme 
rarity and made £10,800 
(estimate £6,000 - £8,000). A 
Mack basalt figure of the dog 
called ‘‘Trump**, which be- 
longed to Hogarth, modelled 
for Wedgwood by the sculptor 
Roubiliac was less popular, 
selling for £2,700 

Among the early pottery, 
collectors were paying a 
pr emi um for pieces bearing 
dates or inscriptions or hav- 
ing some historic association. 

The South Kensington sci- 
ence museum spent £2,052 
(estimate £24)00 - £3,000) to 
secure a Urge saltgbzed 
stoneware bottle, of about 
1750, with an inscription 
commemorating the miracu- 
lous recovery of a man 
crippled by gout after be 
drank Iron Peartree Water, 
the eighteenth-century equiv- 
alent of Perrier. 


Science report 

Enter the era of supercomputers 

By Bill Johnstone, Technology Correspondent 


Two rival Forms of computer 
architecture, both deemed to 
be fundamental to the design 
and operation of 
supercomputers capable of 
complex parallel or concur- 
rent processing, are being 
developed within feet of each 
other on the campus of the 
California Institute of Tech- 
nology (Caltech) in Pasadena. 
California. 

The principal problem now 
for the research teams is bow 
to interconnect the machines* 
components to achieve opti- 
mum efficiency. 

One system uses silicon 
building blocks and electronic 
communication links in its 
design and the other uses 
light as its principal trans- 
mission medium, and 
holograms and crystals mod- 
elled on the way neurons 
(brain cells) are interconnect- 
ed as its components. 

The silicon-technology re- 
searchers will hare designed 


and built a supercomputer by 
this spring capable of solving 
complex astro-physics equa- 
tions io a fraction of the time 
taken previously and of giving 
answers to some that have 
never been tackled. 

The machine, considered 
by the researchers to be the 
first real supercomputer, is 
the third generation of a 
design first osed two years 
ago 

That first machine had 64 
computers or nodes connected 
In cubic fashion where eight 
microcomputers are placed at 
tbe corners of a cube to the 
nth degree. 

Each computer component 
had the power of an IBM 
microcompater. It was the 
work of the computer science 
department at Caltech. A 
second generation was to 
evolve with 128 
nodesdccording to a report in 
Nature of February 21. The 


new computer will have 256 
nodes and will eventually be 
extended to 1024. 

The rival computer archi- 
tecture being developed at 
Caltech explores optical elec- 
tronic technology and tbe 
design of the computer is 
based on a model of die 
human brain. 

The research is being 
pursued by Demetri Psaltis. 
assistant professor of electri- 
cal engineering at Caltech. 
His experiments have been 
inspired by tbe work of John 
HopfiehL who is also at 
Caltech. Hopfield devised the 
mathematics defining how 
neurons interconnect and are 
capable of associated memo- 
ry. 

Psaltis has successfully 
developed a modest 
optoelectronic computer illus- 
trating associated memory, 
considered to be fundamental 
to advanced computer design.

OBITUARY 

MR JAMES DILLON 
Champion of moderate nationalist tradition 

in Irish life 


Mr lames Mathew Dillon 
who died yesterday al the age 
of 83. was a leading Irish 
politician for many years, and 
had been leader of the Fine 
Gael Party and Minister of 
Agriculture. 

Throughout his career he 
was tbe foremost champion of 
the moderate nationalist tra- 
dition in Irish life. He was the 
only public figure of note to 
oppose that country's war- 
time neutrality; yet he sur- 
vived that isolation to 
become a senior government 
minister and later Leader of 
the Opposition. 

He was a stylish figure, an 
able parliamentarian and one 
of the finest public speakers of 
his time. 

Born in 1902, he was one of 
several distinguished sons of 
John Dillon, the last leader of 
the Irish Nationalist Party at 
Westminster, and of his w fie 
Elizabeth, who was the daugh- 
ter of Lord Justice Mathew, 
the founder of tbe English 
Commercial Court. 

Dillon's paternal grand- 
father was John Blake Dillon, 
MP, one of tbe leaders of tbe 
Young Ireland movement, so 
that he was heir to a long- 
standing tradition of public 
service, which influenced him 
profoundly. 

His schooling took place m 
Ireland at the lfi-fated school 
which tbe Downside monks 
had established at Mount St 
Benedict in Gorey. From 
there he went to University 
College, Dublin, and later 
spent several years in Britain 
and America, training to enter 
the family business in County 
Mayo. 

In 1932 he was elected lo 
the Irish parliament and 
within a short period became 
deputy leader of the main 
opposition party to Mr de 
Valera's government. He was 
a severe and sardonic critic of 
the Messianic attitudes of de 
Valera, and an unrelenting 
opponent of the extreme 
nationalist policies, of the de 
Valera government. In 
particular, he denounced the 
economic war with Britain 


and the renunciation of the 
Dominion status accepted un- 
der the Anglo-Irish Treaty of 

1921. . , 

In 1942, Dillon resigned 
from the Fine Gael party on 
the issue of their support for 
Irish neutrality in the War 
He argued that Britain would 
be blockaded into submission 
unless the Allies could use the 
Irish pons to attack the Ger- 
man U-Boats. , 

This stand was an an ot 
considerable political cour- 
age. and was symptomatic ot 
the immense value which Dil- 
lon attached to the mainte- 
nance of political democracy 
and of his sense of the essen- 
tial identity of Irish interests 
with those of Britain and the 
United Slates. 

In 1948, although still an 
Independent, he became Min- 
ister of Agriculture in the in- 
ter-party government which 
ousted de Valera. This gov- 
ernment took the Republic of 
Ireland out of the Common- 
wealth, a measure Dillon sup- 
ported on tbe basis that the 
tenuous links maintained by 
the 1937 Constitution were 
valoeiess and hypocritical, 
and served only to provoke 
violence among political ex- 
tremists; co-operation with 
Britain would be best 
achieved outside the 
Commonwealth. 

Consistent with this view- 
point was the Anglo-Irish 
Trade Agreement which Dil- 
lon played a prominent part 
in negotiating. This provided 
for preferential industrial tar- 
iffs between the two countries 
and for easier access to Brit- 
ain for Irish agricultural prod- 
ucts. With characteristic 
extravagance and pic- 
turesqueness of phrase, Dillon 
announced his intention of 
“drowning Britain with eggs.” 

He was a successful min- 
ister. and by his policies of 
land rehabilitation and the 
institution of a technical ad- 
visory service at parish level, 
he did much to revive Irish 
agriculture. 

In 1951, the inter-party 
government resigned and de 


Valera returned to office. At 
this stage, Dillon rejoiced ihe 
Fine Gael party. He was again 
Minister of .Agriculture. i n Uic 
second inter-party govern, 
meot from 1954-1957. 
Following its defeat he be- 
came leader of Hoc Gael and 
succeeded Mr Ccntefio a* 
Leader of the Opposition. 5 

He was successful in reviv- 
ing the fallen fortunes of bis 
party. His policy of oppo- 
sition to compulsory Gaelic 
in school examinations and 
for appointments to the pub- 
lic service was widely sup- 
ported and in the general 
election of 196!, die party 
achieved substantial gains. 

This progress was not 
maintained, partly because of 
the unprecedented economic 
growth which Ireland enjoyed 
in the early 1966s. A farther 
important factor was the su- 
perior organisation of the 
government party under Mr 
Lemass. who had succeeded^ 
de Valera as Premier and 
leader of Hanna FaiL 

Dillon was less adept at 
debating specific details of 
policy than at proclaiming 
broad principles no longer in 
dispute; His patrician, old- 
world demeanour was fah by 
many to be out of touch with 
the modern society Ireland 
aspired to be, and some youn- 
ger members of his party felt 
that it should shift to the left 
and advocate more rigid eco- 
nomic p lanning . 

Following the 1965 general 
election in which Fine Gael 
failed to make any impression 
on the government's major- 
ity. he decided to retire. 

It was his firm conviction 
that every branch of fife 
Ireland had suffered too long 
through old men hanging on, 
and be was determined not to 
be one of them. He declined 
to allow his name to go for- 
ward for the Presidency in 
1966 and he left public life 
shortly afterwards. 

A man of deep religious 
conviction, he said he needed 
time alone, to prepare his 
sonL 


MRS PHYLLIS SHAND ALLFREY 


Mrs Phyllis Shand Alifrey 
who died in Dominica on 
February 5, at the age of 70, 
was a prominent figure in the 
political life of the island as 
well as bring a novelist and 
poet 

Her novel The Orchid 
House, forgotten for two 
decades, achieved well de- 
served recognition as a West 
Indian classic, on its republi- 
cation in 1982. 

A white West Indian and a 
Fabian Socialist, rite was 
born in the Dominica of the 
years before tbe First World 
War, so well described by her 
fellow novelist Jean Rhys, 
with whom she kept up a 
correspondence. Critics have 
noted that Rhys's master- 
piece, Wide Sargasso Sea. 
has echoes of The Orchid 
House, which Alifrey had 
sent her many years before, 
on its first publication in 
1953. 

Well received in Britain 
and France,where it appeared 
ro translation in 1954, The 
Orchid House was written 


"out of nostalgia” in London, 
where she lived for a period 
after having married an 
engineer. Richard Alifrey. 

Her father, Francis Byam 
Berkeley Shand, had come to 
Dominica from Antigua as a 
young lawyer; through him 
she was kin to Sir Thomas 
Warner, the founding father 
of British settlement in the 
West Indies. Her mother was 
the daughter of a doctor who 
had settled in Dominica. Sir 
Henry NicfaoUs. and his wife, 
bora in Martinique and 
descended from as unde of 
the Empress Josephine. 

In J954 Phyllis Shand 
Alifrey returned with her 
husband to Dominica where 
she rapidly became involved 
in trade union and Labour 
Party activity. This cost her 
husband his job and the 
Allfreys returned briefly to 
England, but returned in 
1957 when Phyllis was elect- 
ed one of die West Indies 
Federation MPs for Domini- 
ca and appointed Minister of 


Labour and Social Affairs in 
the Federal Cabinet. 

This involved her in mov- 
ing to Port of Spain. TriniY 
dad, the Federal capital, but 
when tbe Federation was 
dissolved in 1962 she re- 
turned to Dominica. Howev- 
er she found that she had 
been pushed to the sidelines 
of Dominican politics and in 
due course rite left the 
Dominica Labour Party 

She became editor of a 
weekly paper, the Dominica 
Herald, and subsequently of a 
small paper, the Dominica 
Star, owned and published by 
her husband, and worked 
ceasely to encourage the 
young people of the island to 
literary activity, living simply 
in an old sugar estate water 
mill 

A local girl and two Carib 
boys adopted ihe Allfreys 
parents and took their name. 

She continued to write 
poems and in her last years 
was working on a second 
novel, set in the period of the 
Federal Cabinet 


MAJOR GREGORY BLAXLAND 


A correspondent writes; 

Major Gregory Blaxland, 
soldier and author, died on 
February 4 al the age of 67. 

When bis military career 
was abruptly ended by polio 
in 1954, Blaxland turned to 
writing and, although con- 
fined to a wheelchair, he 
became established as a 
member of Britain's elite 
corps of military historians. 
At his death he was two- 
thirds of the way through a 
history of the British infantry 
from the Battle of Hastings 
onwards. 

Gregory Blaxland, son of 
the senior surgeon at Nor- 
wich Hospital, went to 
Charterhouse and into the 
Royal East Kent Regiment in 
1939. After wartime service 
in France, North Africa and 


Italy be was in Kenya 
fighting the Mau Mau when 
he was struck down by polio. 

For an active man and an 
enthusiastic race rider it was 
a particular blow, but without 
ado he addressed himself to a 
profession whose logistic de- 
mands would have deterred a 
lesser man. 

Sustained by his wife, 
Elizabeth, he made a success- 
ful debut with a life of J.H. 
Thomas, the prewar Labour 
politician, and then launched 
into a series of works 
amounting to a testament to 
the British soldier. 

These included The Regi- 
ments depart a history of the 
British Army. / 945-70, which 
was well received on its 
appearance; Destination Dun- 
kirk: Alexander’s Generals: 


and The Plain Cook and the 
Great Showman which ex- 
plained the disparate roles of 
the First and Eighth Armies 
in North Africa.

Law Report February 111 986 Court of Appeal 


Refusal of leave to enter is sufficient statement of reasons 


Regina » Secretary of State 
for tbe Home Department, Ex 
parte Swati 

Before Sir John Donaldson. 
Master of the Rolls. Lord 
Justice Stephen Brown and 
Lord Justice Parker 
[Judgment given February 10} 

A statement by an immigra- 
tion officer refusing a person 
leave to enter the United 
Kingdom as a visitor for one 
week that she was not satisfied 
that he was genuinely seeking 
entry only for that limited 
period was a sufficient “state- 
ment of the reasons" for the 
purpose of regulation 4dRa) ol 
the Immigration Appeals (No- 
tices) Regulations (SI 1984 No 
2040k and it was necessary to 
show at least an arguable case 
that the decision was unreason- 
able in order to obtain leave to 
move for judicial review. Since 
there was a well-established 
appeal procedure in immigra- 
tion cases judicial review 
would not be granted save in 
exceptional cases. 

Although there was an inher- 
ent jurisdiction to giant bail, it 
should, only be exercised in 
exceptional cases, and only if 


leave to apply for judicial 
review had been granted. 

The Court of Appeal so held 
when giving reasons for refus- 
ing. on January 31. an applica- 
tion by Taj Mohd Swati for 
leave to apply for judicial 
review of the decision of an 
immigration officer refusing 
him leave to enter the United 
Kingdom, following the refusal 
of his application by the 
Queen’s Bench Divisional 
Court on January. 27 1986 
{The Times January 30. 1986). 

Mr Louis Blom-Cooper, QC 
and Mr K. A. Quddps for tbe 
applicant; Mr John Laws far 
the secretary of stale. 

The MASTER OF THE 
ROLLS said that the grounds 
on which relief was soiwht 
were that the applicant satisfied 
the requirements of rule 1 7 of 
the Statement of Changes in 
Immigration Rules (HC 169, 
February 9. I9S3) and that the 
decision of the immigration 
officer was based on mere 
suspicion and not on facts. 

If the applicant were to 
obtain leave he had to satisfy 
the coun that he had an 


arguable case for judicial re- 
view on the Bounds of 
illegality, irrationality or pro- 
cedural impropriety. Illegality 
had never been alleged, and the 
only procedural irregularity 
suggested was that the notice 
given to the applicant inad- 
equately explained why entry 
had been refused- Subject lo 
that point the application bad 
to rest on the alleged irrational-, 
ity of the decision. 

The ground of procedural 
irregularity was based on the 
1984 Regulations, which pro- 
vided that written notice of any 
decision which was appealable 
should include a statement of 
the reasons far the decision or 
action to which it related. 

Mr Blom-Cooper submitted 
that far an immigration officer 
to say that he was not satisfied 
that an applicant for leave to 
enter was genuinely seeking 
entry only for the limited 
period which he had specified 
was a conclusion upon the 
evidence, and that what was 
required was something dif- 
ferent namely reasons for that 
conclusion. 

What was a reason sufficient 


to comply with the regulations 
was to be determined by tbe 
answers to two questions; what 
was the relevant decision or 
action and why the person 
concerned look that decision or 
action. 

The answer to the latter 
question provided the reasons 
which had to be stated. No 
doubt those reasons, if rational, 
would be based on a process of 
reasoning applied to evidence 
and. to that extent, might be 
described as a conclusion from 
that evidence. 

That did not prevent that 
conclusion from being the 
reason for the decision or 
action which was appealable 
and it was for that reason that 
the Regulations called. 

The immigration officer, by 
specifying that she was not 
satisfied that the applicant was 
genuinely seeking entry only 
for the limited period of one 
week, not only told the 
applicant why she was refusing 
him leave to enter, but also, by 
implication, that he had sat- 
isfied her on all other matters 
on which he had to satisfy her. 

What Mr Blom-Cooper was 


seeking to achieve was a 
written statement of tbe facts 
relating to tbe refusal of leave 
to enter in addition to the 
reasons for that refusal. Thai 
could be done only by leaving 
the country and then giving 
notice of appeal. 

An applicant for judicial 
review had to show that be bad 
ait arguable case. The facts 
alleged by the applicant did no 
more than su gg est that he 
might not have appeared as 
credible to tbe immigration 
officer as. he would have 
wished, although the theoreti- 
cal possibility that she might 
have misdirected herself must 
always exist in the basenoe of 
evidence of how she did direct 
herself. 

The decision itself was pot so 
surprising as to cause his 
Lordship to wonder whether h 
might be flawed on the ground 
of irrationality. 

Tbe matter did not stop 
there because it was well 
established that In giving or 
refusing leave to apply for 
judicial review account had to 
be taken of alternative rem- 
edies available to the applicant 


In R v Chief Constable of 
Merseyside. Ex parte Cajvetey 
a 1 986] 2 WLR 144) it had 
been held that the jurisdiction 
would not be exercised where 
there was an alternative rem- 
edy by way of appeal, save in 
exceptional circumstances. 

Where Parliament provided 
an appeal procedure judicial 
review would have no place 
unless the applicant could 
distinguish his case from the 
type of case for which the 
appeal procedure had been 
provided. 

Tbe applicant’s case was 
wholly indistinguishable from 
the general run of cases where 
someone arrived in the United 
Kingdom and was dissatisfied 
becasue he had been refused 
leave to enter. He should not 
be allowed to pursue it by way 
of judicial review. 

As the applicant was in legal 
custody and the court was 
agreed that leave to apply far 
judicial review should be re- 
fused no question of bail arose: 

There was an inherent juris- 
diction to grant bail, but in the 
light of the statutory powers 
available to tbe secretary of 


state and to adjudicators it 
would only be in exceptional 
cases that it should be ex- 
ercised and only if leave to 
apply for judicial review had 
been granted. 

Many visitors and other 
intending immigrants who 
.were refused leave to enter 
were well aware that it was not 
the practice of the Home Office 
. to arrange far their removal if 
either a member of Parliament 
had indicated that he wished to 
consider their case with a view 
to making representations or 
the person concerned had 
indicated an intention to apply 
for leave lo bring proceedings 
for judicial review. 

They were also aware that in 
many cases temporary ad- 
mission would be granted, 
which, subject to any special 
conditions imposed, conferred 
many of the advantages which 
would have been secured if 
leave lo enter had been 
granted. 

It would be inappropriate for 
a judg e to say anything about 
represenianoas by members of 
Parliament to the secretary of 
state or about what action 


should be taken in response.* 
Different considerations ap- 
plied to the secretary of state's 
reaction to being informed that 
an intending immigrant was to 
apply for leave to seek judicial 
review. 

The power of the court to 
stay tite decision which was 
impugned and to grant boil 
would be in no way interfered 
with if applicants for leave to 
apply for judicial review were 
held in custody, rather 
being granted temporary «#. 
mission and the temptation to 
abuse the powers of tbe court, 
which was noted in the 
judgment of the Divisional 
Court, would be substantially 
reduced if that course were 
adopted. Whether ft should be 
done was not a matter for the 
court, but its adoption would 
in no way inhibit the exercise 
of the powers of the court.

Earlier generations would have 
found it difficult to imagin g that g 
show such as Image of Man, in the 
Barbican Concourse gallery until 
March 9, could crane to us with 
something like a shock of novehy. 
They might understand our surprise 
with reference to specific sculptures,'' 
for how, they might ask, could we 
recognize Barbara Hepworth’s Head 
(Raj of 1972 as an “image of man** 
at all? But in general what could be 
more natural and expected, since the 
human face, the human head a n d 
the human body were so evidently 
the staple subject of art? 

That Image of Man is an mn«nri 
exhibition simply indicates the 
distance that even the most conser- 
vative of us have travelled from 
traditional expectations of western 
art during this century. We certainly 
do not take it for granted any more 
that all sculptors will be primarily 
interested in somehow rendering the 
living body, most commonly of 
humans, but if not at least of the 
higher arnmak, 

Yet here we have an anthology of 
sculpted human fiwuk, sometimes 
with a bust attached but more 
frequently not, and virtually all of 
them from the last 100 years: only 
three of the 58, Daumier’s lively, 
caricatural The Man with the Large 
Wig (Louis XIV), Vincenzo 
Gemito's hero-worshipping 
Giuseppe Verdi and the earliest of 
the five . Rodins, -are earlier than 
1886. The Daumier and the Gemito 
each make a specific point in 
relation to what conies after; by 
reminding ns of a coherent tradition 
in which caricature made a special 
sort of sense and portraiture was . 
expected to be elevated to an heroic 
plane. 

Rodin more than myone else put 
an end to all that. His Balzac 
monument of 1898, for which these 
is a Large Head Andy here; dazed to 
be at <»ce heroic and caricatural, 
boldly naturalistic and . highly styl- 
ized, elegant and ungainly. It held 
withm it9elf almost all the posabih- 
-ties of twentiefo-century sculpture 
and it* -approaches to the subject- 
matter of the Iranian body, even, in 
its final; almost completely envel- 
oped form, that of abstraction to the 
point of unrecognizabttfty. 

The rest of the show indicates 
how later sculptors selected among 
the manifold possibilities offered by 
Rodin. Saw pointed trot that Ibsen 
repressed a watershed in drama: “A 
modem manager need not produce 


The Wild Duck, but he must be very 
careful not to produce a play which 
will seem insipid and ohWashioned 
to playgoers who have seen The 
Wild Duck, even though they may 
have hissed iC* The same observa-

Most of the sculptures in the show 
demonstrate, through variations on 
the theme of the t m in a Ti head,' ini 
how many and various ways the

The works are almost all in bronze 
(though they include one rare wax 
original by the “impressionist” 
sculptor Medardo Rosso, one wood- 
.carviug and rate large ceramic), 

- which gives to the collection a 
consistency transcending the diversi- 
ty. - 

And the ext ra or dinary array of 
works by major figures from 
Bourdelle to Brancusi, Maillol to 
Modigliani, Ernst to Kollwitz, 
Lehmbruck to Wotruba, provides ns 
with so much food feu: thought one 
can only re gret that Peter Stuyvesant 
did not extend their sponsorship to 
providing toe authoritative cata- 
logue so imperatively called for as 
well as assembling the works 
. themselves. . .

The Image of Man is not perfectly 
capable of speaking for itself; to the 
eye-and sometimes to the heart. By 
the convention of the moment there 
is another sense that it is prohibited 
from addressing, and a peculiarly 
sculptural one at that the sense of 
touch. With toe heavy emphasis we 
place today on conservation, han- 
dling sculpture is, in y « w« aV not 
approved of and no doubt rightly so . 
if we remember St Peter’s toe, not to 
mention toe less evident hazards of 
chemical reaction.

Concerts 


Satirical delights 


LSO/ 

Rozhdestvensky 

Barbican 


Gennadi Rozhdestvensky is 
back with the London Sym- 
phony Orchestra for a series 
of four Barbican concerts 
and, if Sunday night’s first is 
anything to go by, they will 
certainly strengthen the long- 
term bond between them. 

Rozhdestvensky's Stravin- 
sky is a force to be reckoned 
with and, after his Firebird 
on Sunday, one can only wait 
impatiently for The Rite of 
Spring which ends toe series 
on February 20. But we are 
bring treated to his Prokofiev 
as well: Alexander Nevsky 
next Sunday and, for the time 
being, the suite from Lieuten- 
ant Kije and excerpts from 
Romeo and Juliet. 

Rozhdestvensky under- 
stands nkdy the coexistence 
in Prokofiev's music of the 
satiric observation of the 
adult and the delighted eye of 
the child, and he balances 
them on the very end of his 
long, darting baton to irresist- 
ible effect Lieutenant Kije 
was born with a flick of the 
wrist, the arching of an 
eyebrow, and a minutely 
calculated balance between 
offstage cornet and muted 
orchestra. That finesse of 
judgement epitomized the 


entire' dean, silver-tipped 
reading with its miraculously 
urbane trumpet and horn 
solos and its most delicate 
shadings of time and dis- 
tance. 

Romeo and Julia , too, 
showed Rozhdestvensky's 
cunning in playing off toe 
acoustic, his players* tem- 
peraments and the orchestra- 
tion one against the other. He 
created an extraordinary 
echo-chamber effect with 
sudden, hushed violins cring- 
ing under an unusually com- 
pressed opening tutti 
eresendo: and. at toe Death 
of Tybah, be incited each 
string instrument to frenetic 
individual activity within the 
music's massive weight Best 
of all, Rozhdestvensky would 
never allow his players to go 
too far at the top of a phrase. 
The drama was fierce but 
contained: no facile staccato 
for the young Juliet, no 
screeching violins for the 
Minuet. 

The low point of toe 
evening was Rachmaninov's 
Second Piano Concerto. Kaz- 
une Shimizu delivered his 
solo port with a cool, hard 
exactitude, disturbingly 
voiceless and, for all its 
tecbnicial virtuosity, played 
alongside rather than with 
the orchestra in a chill and 
curiously relentless isolation.

as toe day it was carved in the

We also probably find ourselves 
observing, perhaps with slight em- 
barrassment, the different implica- 
tions of touching from those of 
merely looking. It would be interest- 
ing to have hidden cameras trained 
on at least two of the figures, a tiny, 
sensuously female marble figurine 
from .third-century BC Syria or 
Mesopotamia ^rad a larger, obtru- 
sively male wooden figure from 
Nigeria from early in our . own 
'century.-^ ... 

••• Surely the patterns of response 
and withdrawal what is fondled 
unselfconsciously and what is metic- 
ulously avoided, would teU us a lot 
about our own attitudes to sexuality 
as well as the advantages and pitfalls 
of the sculptor’s ait. For where, 
amid the mixed emotions with 
which we handle evidently sexual 
artefacts, does the purely (or not so 
rade off i 


strictly aesthetic? Is it possible to 
(haw the line? Is there any point in 
our even trying? 

For anyone interested in carrying 
toe study of the human body and 
the relations of hs understanding to 
art, there is a marginal but intriguing 
show called Mapping the Body at 
the London Ecology Centre, 45 
Shelton Street, Covent Garden, until 
the aid of toe month. This proves to 
be a didactic exhibition, related to a 
-series of Tuesday-night seminars at 
the ICA, about the differing ideas of | 
toe h uman body, its physical and 
spiritual structure, which have 
obtained in various cultures, oriental 
and occidental ancient and modem. 

The subject is fascinating and full 
of implications for the arts in 
general; moreover, the maps of the 
body actually produced, even with 
purely scientific intent, are often 
rather beautiful More originals 
would be desirable, not to mention a 
proper explanatory catalogue. But it 
is still well worth a short visit.

RPO/Temirkanov 

Festival Hall 


The sheer inspiration of 
Brahms's Violin Concerto 
always seems to take char ge 
of every performance it 
receives, but even so Miriam 
Fried's deeply committed 
recount of the solo part made 
for a memorable listening 
experience. Her remarkable 
1 mforced weight of tone 
allowed her to dominate toe 
proceedings whenever she 
needed to, even when the 
: conductor, Yuri Temirkanov, 
was not throttling back the 
accom parliament unduly. 

During me first movement 
she seemed concerned that 
her violin was slipping out of 
tune, but either this was less 
of a problem than she feared 
or she was concentrating very 
expertly. 

The music’s paragraphs 
were unfolded in long spans, 
articulated by an obviously 
formidable technical mastery, 
and, if some more gently 
floated tones in the Adagio 
would have been nice, (be 
Finale was swept along on a 
cascade of exhilarating dance- 
rhythms which had an enthu- 
siastic gentleman sitting just 
in front of me conducting 


almost as vigorously as 
Temirkanov himself. 

Temirkanov's batonless 
style is nothing if not 
expansive — sometimes he 
looks as if be is sweeping 
snow off a car windscreen 
with both forearms. But the 
orchestral results have energy 
and precision, Borodin's 
Prince Igor overture featuring 
some ensp interplay from the 
brass section.. Rimsky-Kor- 
sakov’s Scheherazade was 
less successful flawed by toe 
aU-too-familiar over-obvious- 
ness. This score can shimmer 
with a marvellous fairy-tail 
pc, but it needs a much 
touch than it got here. 

The Festival of Baghdad 
for instance was consistently 
driven too hard for the 
brilliant orchestration to 
speak as vividly as it should. 
Still this performance had its 
moments; The Tates of the 
Kalandar Prince was exciting- 
ly played, Temirkanov lay- 
ing close and effective 
attention to details of phras- 
ing. Sympathy is offered to 
Barry Griffiths, whose lovely 
concluding violin solo was 
ruined by some of the most 
disgustingly insensitive audi- 
ence coughing 1 have ever 
heard.

Covent Garden 

“Oh God, the muddled 
thinking toe world can get to 
with the best intentions!” 
The expostulation was wrung 
from Ninette de Valois on 
stage at Covent Garden on 
Sunday night as, flanked by 
Alicia Markova and Freder- 
ick Ashton (three architects 
of British ballet, living na- 
tional treasures all *of them), 
she contemplated the possible 
effect of toe Arts Council's 
well-intentioned muddled 
thinking . on the future of 
Sadler’s Wells. 

We were there, the per- 
formers on stage, others in 
toe pit and behind the scenes, 
and a house pocked to the 
rafters, to try to convince Sir 
William and his Merry Men

credit to toe Royal Ballet 
dancers Mark Freeman and 
David Drew respectively pc 
suggesting it and or ganiz i n g

with dancers even busking 
for toe Wells in the interval 

There was singing as well 
as dancing. The quartet

Bernstein’s Candida and that 
famous little list from The

Despite inappropriate ref-

Covent Garden’s branch of 
toe Royal Ballet let their hair 
down with Michael Cordefs 
spoof Flora’s Demise, starring 
Michael Coleman as a glum 
Prince Charming on cratches, 
and provided partners for 
Yoko .Shimizu (who has just 
unfairly lost hear own battle

unremarked, nor toe touch- 
ing promise of the National

Dwight Powell in his own 
solo Freedom and a squad 
from toe Royal Ballet School 
in their famous hornpipe. 

To pnt on a show of tois

Theatre 


Essential Euripides for the Eighties 


Medea 

Theatr Gywd 


It is one sign of Toby 
Robertson’s self-confidence 
as Theatr Clywd’s incoming 
artistic director that, having 
lured a Medea with the 
drawing power of Eileen 
Atkins to his remote North 
Wales arts centre, he should 
then leave its main bouse 
dark and consign the produc- 
tion to one of its studios. 

He has good reason for 
this, as appears partly from 
Simon Hi glen's transforma- 
tion of the space into a 
miniature amphitheatre: an 
all-white wrap-round of cot- 
ton draperies, skulls and 
shattered sculpture at once 
establishing the sense of 
Hellenic sunlight and a di- 
mate of desolation. 

Medea has lately been 
emerging as the key Euripides 
text lor toe Eighties, as The 


Bacchae was 20 years ago: 
this production follows Nan- 
cy Meckler’s powerfully femi- 
nist version and Tony Har- 
rison’s Medea : a Sex-war 
Opera as toe latest attempt to 
put toe myth under a 
miscroscope and extract 
more from it than the story 
of a sexual betrayal repaid 
with an atrocious revenge. 
Hence another reason for 
examining toe play in condi- 
tions that promote emotional 
precision rather than grand 
gestures. 

Medea is a wronged wife. 
She is also an alien, a factor 
Mr Robertson starkly under- 
lines by presenting the 
Greeks as Macks. Clifton 
Jones's panicky Croon, a tin- 
pot tyrant in a wheelchair, 
and Leon Herbert's smugly 
dominant Jason stand for toe 
civilized values; while toe 
barbarian murderess who is 
shortly to kill her own 
children appears in toe per- 
son of a wretched white 
woman whom we first see 
stifling her anguish to address 


toe women of Corinth with 
the utmost courtesy. 

It seems that we are being 
invited to view toe events 
through Medea’s eyes; raid, 
from toe moment of her 
opening offstage cries. Miss 
Atkins's performance sets out 
to capture unqualified sym- 
pathy. She starts in total 
despair without a plan in her 
head. It is easy to identify 
with that; then with her first 
steps towards recovery, as she 
plausibly talks Creon round 
to giving her a day of grace 
and confronts Jason, choking 
bade her anger to attack him 
rationally. 

Sometimes playing toe silly 
submissive woman or the 
harmless victim, sometimes 
telegraphing her true feelings 
with twisting fingers and 
flashes of huge horror-struck 
eyes, she reveals enormous 
variety in the part and carries 
you with her up to toe 
moment when — on hearing 
that ho- deadly gifts have 
been kindly received by 
Jason’s bride - she utters a 


cry as if awakening from a 
nightmare. 

It is at this point that toe 
spectators realize they have 
walked into toe nightmare 
with ben and when she goes 
on to the final killings she is 
on her own. She is now 
hectoring toe audience, and 
the more defiantly she gives 
her reasons for killing the 
children toe clearer it is that 
they are bad reasons. This is 
a staggering transition; but its 
effect is not so much to show 
her transformation into a 
monster as to turn a mirror 
on a house full of potential 
MedeasL 

Taking full account of the 
feminist position, this is not 
a feminist production. Its 
aim is not to justify the 
character but to show charac- 
ter engulfed by non-rational 
forces. In toe words of 
Jeremy Brooks's translation: 
“Rage masters all as con- 
science never can". 

Irving Wardle 


If the Arts Council does not 
hear toe dear message it will 
never be forgiven.

Know I'm Right” and “Run

After the coldest night for 40 years, 
trains and tubes were delayed and 
traders reached their dealing con- 
soles fairly late and somewhat 
frazzled. In the heat of the moment, 
so' the story goes, they forgot that 
yesterday saw an innovation in the 
gilts market, with clean prices 
quoted for stocks throughout the 
maturities. 

Stripping out the accrued interest 
from the prices inevitably reduces 
the capital residual in the mediums 
and longs. The traders ignored this 
nicety. “My God,” they cried, “are 
those the prices?” and promptly 
started buying. 

By lunch time, the longs were up 
by nearly one point, and the 
mediums, which in theory ought to 
have lagged, reflecting the baleful 
presence of the new tap, were not 
too far behind. This may reflect a 
new buying force among the later 
categories of maturities — the 
discount houses who until now have 
been structurally impeded from 
trading longer through the cost of 
holding stock with no accrued 
interest But the mediums were also 
buoyed by the detectable presence in 
the market of foreign buyers who 
reportedly put in some good quality 
buying orders yesterday. 

Despite the innovation of clean 
prices, the market retains its 
mystery. For some unaccountable 
reason it is still possible to deal 
“special ex” among the mediums 
and longs, a quaint relic of the old 
regime which seems to have no 
place in the new pre-Big Bang gilts 
world 

Among the traders too it was 
possible -to find dealers yesterday 
who were eschewing the euphoria 
and claiming yields were no more 
solidly based yesterday than a week 
ago. Oil prices still look tricky, they 
claim, while the UK is giving a fair 
imitation of wallowing in the midst 
of a political crisis. 

US trends, in particular, look 
treacherous, claim the bears. 
Domestic policy considerations 
would appear to call for a tighter 
monetary stance , by the Federal 
Reserve. Board especially "after last 
week's huge -jump in the January 
non-farm payroll. But external 
factors, notably the possible impact 
on the US banking system: of non- 
performing loans to oil producing 
countries, as oil prices slip, should 
help to curb any push to higher 
rates. The Federal Open Market 
Committee, when it meets this 
week, may not have a great deal to 
discuss. Its scope for manoeuvre is 
very limited It may opt for a 
neutral policy over rates. But since 
first quarter 1986 real GNP growth 
looks set to touch an amazing figure, 
like plus 6 per cent, the Fed's 
masterly inactivity may simply 
provoke a sell-off in bonds. 

As ever, however, when' the 


London market starts to steam 
ahead, it grows impatient about the 
cautionary approach. Traders see 
two factors underpinning the mar- 
ket; a short position among the 
jobbers which is now being filled in 
ahead of the tap tender on 
Wednesday, which — and this could 
be the second plus for the market — 
risks being taken out in full as soon 
as the lists close. 

Emerging Midland 

In the aftermath of Midland Bank's 
sudden announcement that it is 
selling Crocker National the in- 
evitable question is Where Next? 

The arrival within weeks of 
Christopher “Kit” McMahon, for- 
mer deputy governor of the Bank of 
England, is certain to boost the 
bank's internal morale as well as its 
image in the City. But there will be 
an uncomfortable year's hiatus 
before Mr McMahon takes full 
control of Midland as chairman and 
chief executive — a year which 
covers the crucial period of big 
bang. 

On the plus side, it has cut away 
the worst parts of its business and 
has nearly £800 million in cash from 
the Crocker sale to play with. Not 
surprisingly, the speculation has 
already begun as to whether 
Midland will soon be the subject of 
a takeover bid. 

On the face of it, it is hard to see 
how a takeover could work. It 
would require taking on the rest of 
Midland's business, which any 
institution would be understandably 
reluctant to do. 

The” post-Crocker policy an- 
nounced by- Midland last week — to 
concentrate on British retail banking 
and on international capital and 
equity markets — lacked conviction. 
Midland desperately needs a strong 
overseas banking operation to 
match its rivals, but seems to lack 
ideas. A link with Standard Char- 
tered would give it an instant 
widespread international banking ' 
network. Standard Chatered has the 
added Attraction ' of ..having suc- 
ceeded in t^e- California market 
where Midland -failed. 

Standard Chartered itself has been 
shrinking for some time, as Midland 
has, pulling in its horns in trouble 
spots such as South Africa. Its 
position is coming to look increase 
ingly fragile as it struggles to hold its' 
operations together without a secure 
underlying sterling base. A link with 
Midland would give it just that 

Standard Chartered, with a mar- 
ket capitalization of £680 million, is 
unlikely to agree to a takeover by 
the somewhat larger Midland. 
Midland’s management probably 
does not command enough respect 
for that. But a merger could suit 
both sides well and strengthen the 
standing of both banks in the City.

MidfencTs shares are yidd- 
ing 7 5 compared with pro- 
spective yields of 6.5 for 
Lloyds, 6 for National West- 
minster and S.9 for Barclays. 

Brokers are predicting 
sharply higher profits for 
Midland over the last year, 
up from £134 miltion in 
1984 to around £340 million 
this time, partly as ? result 
of the improvement in 
Crocker's performance. 

There appears to be a 
levelling out of the yield 
spread within the sector, 
with the prospect of Lloyds 
climbing over the next year 
to match Midland’s yield 
level. • 

But despite its rapid 
improvements in profits 
Midland will have to ran 
hard to keep up, since the 
other banks are not la g gin g 
in tbe profits race. Barclays, 
for example, turned in £622 
million pretax in 1984 but is 
widely expected to break the 
£1 biffion marie in 1986. 

Prospects for the entire 
sector are inevitably over- 
bung by the spectre of oil 
prices. It is still too early to 
say where the ofl price will 
settle, but if it stays in the 
mid to low teens in dollars 

S rr barrel the banks dearly 
ce problems. Latin Ameri- 
can debt troubles, among 
Other things , will t alca on a 
new dimension of serious- 
ness and the stock market is 
not- likely to look mi a fresh 
round of reserving a pm<t 
non-performing loans with 
much tolerance. 

. Bank shares could even be 
adversely affected by. long- 
term uncertainty over the ml 
price. Tbe sector can really 
regard itself as being in the 
dear only if oil settles back 
at around $25 a barrel - but 
that does not look a fikdy 
level in the piesent'dimate 
of chaos among oil 
procuders. -

STOCK MARKET REPORT 


Shares climb to peak 
on hopes of tax cuts 




Tbe stock market raced to 
new peaks as speculative 
fever continued. Hopes of big 
tax cuts in next month's 
Budget and receding fears of 
higher interest rates pushed 
up share prices in stores, 
foods, buildings and proper- 
ties. 

A record dose on Wall 
Street on Friday night and 
firmer crude oil prices also 
helped sentiment Oil shares 
finned several pence to 
reflect crude oil gains. Golds 
finned between 50 cents and 
$ 1 . 

The bid scene was given a 
further boost by news of 
Van tens ViyeUa's agreed 
£734 million bid for Coats 
Patens, the Scottish textile 
company. Coats had previ- 
ously agreed a merger with 
Dawson International, the 
Scottish knitwear group, but 
found Vantona’s offer more 
tempting. 

Vantona lost 12p to 438 p. 
Coats gained 9p to 249p ana 
Dawson was 8p up at 216p.

Firms drag feet on data law 


Registration of computer- 
held information under tbe 
Data Protection Act has been 
significantly slower than ex- 
pected, with only 7,000 
companies completing the 
procedure in the first three 
months of the registration 
Today marks the half-way 
stage m the six months 
during which details of all 
persona] data held on com- 
puters must be registered. 

! The Data Protection Regis- 
trar, Mr Eric Howe, had 
expected up to 30,000 appli- 
cations by now. In total 
about 300.000 companies are 
thought to be affected by the 
Act 


By Teresa Poole 

“People might think they 
are exempt when they are 
not. I am concerned to make 
sure that people understand 
the application of the Act,” 
Mr Howe said. 

Companies who fail to 
register by May 11 will be 
committing a criminal of- 
fence which could lead to 
unlimited fines. 

Tbe registrar is likely to 
take a lenient view if people 
are genuinely confused, but 
those who are seen to have 
flouted the Act will be 
prosecuted. 

The registry is now con- 
ducting a study to to discover 
the level of awareness about 


the requirements of the Data 
Protection Act and further 
advertising may start next 
month. So fer 150,000 forms 
have been sent out but , 
companies are clearly taking 1 
their time about completing 
them. 

The late build-up in regisr 
tra lions will mean an increas- 
ingly heavy workload at the 
registry. 

The slow build-up in appli- 
cations has at least enabled 
the registry to check submit- 
ted forms thoroughly. So fer 
about 8 per cent of forms 
have been wrongly completed 
and have been classed as 
invalid. 


Wellcome 
to hold 
ballots for 
new issue 

The public share issue by 
the pharmaceuticals group 
Wellcome was 18 times 
oversubscribed, the company 
announced yesterday. 

More than 430.000 applica- 
tions were received for a total 
of about 3.75 billion shares at 
120p a share, with an 
aggregate value of some £4.5 
billion. 

Preferential applications, 
including those from employ- 
ees and certain former em- 
ployees. have been allocated 
in foil for a total of 
approximately 17 million 
shares. 

Because of the oversub- 
scription the company says it 
has not been practical to 
allocate shares to all appli- 
cants. After rejecting multiple 
applications and those not 
completed in accordance with 
the terms of the oiler, shares 
have been allocated as fol- 
io ws: 

applications for between 
200 and 300 shares — ballots 
for 200 shares; 

400 shares — ballots for 
250; 

500 to 1,500 - ballots for 
300; 

2.000 to 4.000 - ballots for 
350; 

4,500 and 5.000 - 350; 

6.000 and 7.000 - 400; 

8.000 shares — 450 

For applications for 9,000 
shares and above, the alloca- 
tion will be approximately 
5.5 per cent of the number of 
shares applied for, subject to 
a maximum allocation of 
560.000. 

The ballots are being car- 
ried out on a weighted basis 
after giving significant prefer- 
ence to smaller applications, 
and will be approximately: 
200 shares — l in 4 basis 
300 to 500 - I in 10 

1.000 - I in 5 

1.500 and 2.000 - I in 3 

2.500 - 2 in 5 

3.000 - 1 in 2 

3.500 - 2 in 3 

4.000 - 3 in 4

You may have wondered why Hanson^ 
share price so dramatically underperformed 
the market in 1985. 

Gould it be that investors have come to 
realise that Hansonk growth is dependent on 
successively larger acquisitions? 

That 77% of its companies are operating 

in declining industries? 

That the current trading performance of 


most Hanson companies is at best pedestrian? 

ThatHansonplansto issueanothermassive 
amount of convertible to take over Imperial? 

That this would result in Hanson convert- 
ible accounting for nearly a third of all UK. 
convertible issues? 

Or is there some- 
thing else we don’t 
know?

THE CITY OF YORK/1 


Building a future 
out of history 


W alk out of York 
Railway station 
into the relatively 
new concourse 
and the visitor will be 
confronted by a splendidly 
. appointed 19th century rail- 
way signal. It has a momen- 
tary appeal, a symbol of the 
city’s heritage as a railway 
centre — George Hudson’s 
ambition was to “Mak’all 
Trail ways cum t’York" - but 
the inquiring mind will come 
to wonder whether it repre- 
sents something more. 

Does it signify the 
downline to a city ineluctably 
enshrined in the richly warm 
; embrace of its heritage or 
■ could it signal the upline of a 
• York heading towards the 
21st century? 

John Cairns, the city’s 
; young and bustling chief 
“ executive, encapsulates the 
dilemma. "Ask most people 
I about York and they will talk 
• about the Minster, the Ro- 
, mans and the Vikings. But 
• ask them about the future 
; and there will be long 
silences. 

* That is why the city is 
. trying hard to attract new 
; industries and commerce to 
* underpin its cultural tra- 
‘ dition; marrying, to para- 
< phrase its new slogan, history 
] and technology. 

* There have been several 
' m home truths which have 
* turned the city in this 
direction. One of them was 
when one of the top five 
employers, who between 
them provided nearly a third 
of the employment to the 
■ city’s 60.000 workforce, 
closed, causing the loss of 
several hundred jobs. 

It was a glassworks, which 
! has been pulled down to 
build a new hoteL While the 
foundations were being ex- 
r cavated the remains of an 
Anglo-Saxon settlement were 
„ discovered whose potential 
• richness is still being exam- 
: ined with every anticipatory 
• scrape of the tnoweL 

The discovery caught the 
York Archeological Trust un- 


awares. "We knew there was 
a settlement somewhere but 
we hadn’t anticipated it 
would be located in that pan 
of the city,** said Peter 
Addyman, the trust’s direc- 
tor. 

It has been discoveries 
such as these, like the Viking 
settlement off Coppergate, 
turned into the latest jewel in 
the city’s crown — that helps 
to attract visitors, now 
approaching three million 
each year. 

York people, it has to be 
said, have an ambivalent 
attitude towards visitors — 
"tourists** is a nasty word. 

This does not mean there 
is an open hostility to the 
tourist, although at the height 
of the season there can be a 
coven frustration. But how 


There is a 
need to attract 
more industry 


can antipathy, be long-lived 
when tourism provides 5,000 
jobs — that is 8 per cent of 
the working population, mak- 
ing it the city’s third largest 
employer — and is worth 
neany £50 million a year? 

York, in recent years, has 
been developed to meet the 
needs of the visitor. New 
hotels (some of which have 
already added extensions), 
more parking areas (although 
still not enough) and a range 
of shopping facilities un- 
dreamt of a decade ago have 
now been provided. Five 
years ago there were about 
135 hotels and guest houses, 
the number now is approach- 
ing 180. 

The city has been trans- 
formed commercially. The 
small business entrepreneur 
has turned bis terrace house 
into a bed and breakfast 
establishment and. in a prime 
site like Stonegate, a pedes- 
trian precinct through which 
the visitor can wander on bis 
way to the Minster, property 


is changing bands at very 
high prices. 

A building bought 10 years 
ago for £36.000 was sold 
recently for nearly £1 million. 
It is ' a figure outside the 
resources of the local en- 
trepreneur. Property in the 
city centre is being bought by 
pension funds and rented 
with an average yield of 
about 4.5 per cent 

Tourism has helped to 
cushion York from the worst 
excesses of the recession; 
with unemployment at 1 1 per 
cent, the city’s jobless total is 
below the national average. 
Bui as Mr Cairns points out, 
that in itself .is not satisfac- 
tory nor reason for com- 
placency. There is a need to 
attract more manufacturing 
industry to balance it with 
the service industries. 

There is controversy about 
how the city plans for the 
future. Not surprisingly the 
Chamber of Trade and Com- 
merce wants more effort put 
into tourism. It has proposed 
an initial £250.000 a year co- 
partnership scheme with the 
City Council, the bulk of the 
money coming from council 
grants. 

The council has said no, 
coming up with the idea of a 
special study- on tourism, the 
two bodies sharing half the 
£25,000 cost of the study. 
The businessmen, in their 
turn, have said no. 

The issue remains a matter 
of debate. Meantime the 
council is increasing its drive 
to encourage more industry 
into the area. York Enterprise 
Limited, a joint venture of 
the city council and the 
private sector, has set up 
office above the local gas 
showroom recently, with a 
£250.000 investment fund to 
help encourage new in- 
dustries, and the expansion 
of businesses. 

The council is also likely to 
adopt a £500,000 Employ- 
ment and Development Fund 
—but it is not going to be easy 
to attract inward investment 
as York does not have the 
advantage of falling within a 
development area. 



George Hudson, the railway pioneer, and the towers of York Minster, the familiar city skyline 


It began with chocolates and railways 


A national need for loco- 
motive transport and a 
worldwide desire to gratify a 
sweet tooth provided the 
foundation on which 
“modern” York has grown. It 
was a railway centre and a 
confectionery city long before 
it became a tourist trap. 

Two people are largely 
responsible: a wheeler-dealer 
called George Hudson who 
pioneered the railways, and 
philanthropic Joseph 
R own tree who developed the 
chocolate industry. In the 
latter context it would be an 
omission to leave out another 
Joseph. Terry, who had 
begun turning cocoa and 
sugar into more edible prod- 
ucts long before his rival. 

Mr Hudson was to fall 
from power because of du- 
bious business methods be- 
fore Rown trees appeared on 
the scene, but the city has 
capitalized richly upon their 
legacies. 

York station has presided 
over tiie changing railway 
scene, from sedate Victorian 
splendour to today’s high- 
speed trains, just as Joseph. 
Rowntree’s heirs have devel- 


oped and expanded the 
manufacture of chocolate 
products to a £1,0000 million 
turnover. 

It was an off-the-cuff re- 
mark by R A Kaner, chair- 
man of Rown trees United 
Kingdom confectionery di- 
vision, that caught the fla- 
vour of the two industries - 
or rather brought them into 
juxtaposition — when he was 
talking about the stability of 
chocolate products. Britain, 


tons of bars, chocolate boxes 
and those mints with a hole 
in them leaves the Rown tree 
factory each year. The small- 
er factory of Terry’s, now 
part of United Biscuits, 
produces 19,000 tons. 

The railways and the 
confectionery manufacturers 
are the big cogs in the city’s 
economic wheel: combined 
they provide about 30 per 
cent of York’s employment 

But the numbers are not as 


What better way to pass a train journey 
than with a cup of tea and a chocolate bar 


apparently, has been consum- 
ing chocolate at the rate of 
seven ounces a head a week 
for the past 50 years. 

“But it is understandable", 
he said. “It is an easily 
accessible food. What better 
way of helping to pass a train 
journey than a cup of tea and 
a bar of chocolate.” 

It has been good for the 
railways, too. One of York 
station's biggest freight cus- 
tomers is the confectionery 
industry. Although all prod- 
ucts do not go by rail. 80.000 


great as they were some years 
ago. The streams of cyclists 
pedalling out of the carriage 
and wagon works of 
Rowntrees factory have 
thinned out and it is not just 
because people have taken to 
cars. New practices and new 
technology have taken their 
tolL 

Rowntrees labour force is 
about 5,800 - 1.500 less than 
five years .ago. British Rail 
has shed more than 500 in a 
similar period; the carriage 
and wagon works, largely 


protected because BR is 
producing multiple units in 
York, about 250. 

But as a railway centre it 
brings visitors to the city in 
their thousands. It is es- 
timated that about two mil- 
lion passengers came to York 
by rail last year. In the past 
18 months there have been 
more than two million in- 
quiries at the stations's new 
travel centre. 

But there is more to York 
business than railways and 
chocolate. The Shepherd 
Building Group started as a 
York family concern nearly a 
century ago. It may not be a 
household name, but what 
Rowntrees is to Kil-Kat and 
Terry's is to Old Gold. 
Shepherd’s is PonaKabin and 
Portasilo. 

It was the Shepherd com- 
pany, which employs about 
2.000 people locally, which 
restored York Minster in the 
late 1960s and early 1970s as 
well as building York 
University. 

But these industries - and 
those like Ben Johnson’s 
which print telephone direc- 
tories and mail order cat- 


alogues. or Vickers 
Instruments which produces 
gunsights and range-finders 
for armoured vehicles as well 
as micro-measurement sys- 
tems for the Japanese video 
industry - are not enough to 
keep York afloat economi- 
cally. 

That is why the city started 
on a huge programme of 
marketing itself as an ideal 
area in which to set up new 
technological-based in- 
dustries. It is a strategy that 
began three years ago when 
the future of York was the 
central argument in the 
political battle for control of 
the City CounciL It ended 
with a hung council but there 
are elections again this year. 

It has brought about a 
more flexible policy for the 
release of land for industrial 
and commercial use 

In projecting itself to 
potential industrial and 
commercial developers the 
city, with financial help from 
neighbouring councils, is 
considering doubling its 
1984-85 marketing budget of 
£60,000 in the coming finan- 
cial year.

THE CITY OF YORK/2 


Where the York story comes to life 


Four-hundred years ago. wor- 
o f ' 


thy citizens of York sent a 
petition to the Lord Chan- 
cellor. protesting at the 
threatened! demolition of 
Clifford's Tower which 
stands on a mound not far 
from the River Ouse. They 


complained they would have 
ildn 


"no other building for showe 
of this cittye save of but 
oniye the minster and the 
church sieples if the said 
towre be pulled down". 

■ Much has come and gone 
since, some rediscovered. For 
the casual visitor the best 
place to start is the Heritage 
Centre, a former medieval 
church which houses the 
“York Story”. 


Opened 10 years ago for 
iraJ Her- 


European Architectui 
iiage Year. 1,000 years of the 
city's history is shown 
through models, reconstruc- 
tions. audio-visual displays 
and tapestries. 

Round the corner is the 
Jorvik Viking Centre, and 
beyond Clifford’s ToweT is 
the Castle Museum, possibly 
the finest and certainly the 
largest folk museum in the 
country. 

A bone of contention 
between the Viking Centre 
and the Castle Museum when 
the centre was being built 
was that construction work- 
ers found a superb helmet, 
dating back to the first 
Viking attacks. The centre 
would have liked the prize 
exhibit for itself, but the City 
Fathers wanted it to te 
displayed in the Castle Mu- 
seum. The centre settled for a 
hologram. 

The magnificently restored 
helmet is now on show — one 
of scores of exhibits in 
museum based on the private 
collection of Dr John 
KirkU 869-1 940). While visit- 
ing patients in North York- 
shire. he realized that a way 
of life was vanishing with the 
advent of mass-produced 
goods and began collecting 


articles from the house and 
on the farm. 

Out of that collection, the 
Castle Museum grew, and has 
long been one of York’s 
showpieces. A more recent 
attraction is the 18th-century 
Fairfax House- Owned by 
York Civic Trust — its 
chairman John Shannon has 
been indefatigable in his 
persona] drive to preserve the 
city’s heritage — the restored 
house has a a unique collec- 
tion of Georgian furniture, 
paintings and porcelain. 

At the other end of Coney 
Street, one of the city’s main 
shopping thoroughfares, are 
the Museum Gardens, a 10- 
acre park, in which is sited 
the Yorkshire Museum. This 
houses an array of fine 
Roman. Anglo-Saxon. Viking 
and Medieval treasures. 

Last year, the "Roman 
life” galleries were opened, 
displaying carved statues, 
tombstones, wal [paintings, 
mosaics, a Roman kitchen, 
gold and silver jewellery. 
This summer, a natural 
history exhibition on dis- 
appearing wildlife is to be 
mounted. 

Over one million visitors a 
year go to the National 
Railway Museum. Not far 
from the railway station, it 
displays the spectrum of 
railway heritage from the 
earliest horse-drawn carriage 
vehicles to the Advanced 
Passenger Train. It is a living 
museum in the sense that 
sometimes its locomotives 
and rolling stock take pan in 
passenger-carrying operations 
for BR 

And it would be 
unforgiveable to leave out the 
17th-century Treasurer's 
House, its 20 rooms lying in 
the shadow of the Minster 
the Merchant Adventurers’ 
hall, built in the 1350s; and 
the City Art Gallery which 
houses European and British 
paintings spanning seven 
centuries, including the 
Lyceit Green collection of 
Old Masters. 



On the rails: The National Railway Museum attracts more than a million visitors a year 


In pursuit of excellence 


Two miles south-east of the city centre a rel- 
atively new tradition has grown — the pursuit 
of educational excellence. York University 
was opened 22 years ago and it can H««m to 
have met the standards laid down by its first 
vice-chancellor. Lord James of Rnsbolme. 

Professor Berrick Sank an economic 
historian and present vice-chancellor, is 
determined to maintain the tradition even 
though he is having to live through financial 
constraints. Staff losses are inevitable but 
ways are being found not to damage the stu- 
dent-staff ratio, so mach a part of the 
university’s academic structure. 

But the university grants committee has 
been told that the university's presentation of 
a series of roughly balanced budgets should 
not lead to any misunderstanding as to the 
enormous effort and strain that the cuts 
imply. 

Since its inception, the university has given 
great emphasis to s mall group tearhing, “It is 
this that has contributed enormously to oar 


success in attracting students," says Prof 
Saul — a justified H*»n» if you look at its un- 
der-graduate performance indicators along- 
side die national average. 

While h has successfully moved in the 
direction of science in the put five years, it 
still m ai ntain s its strength in social sciences 
and the arts. To destroy this balance would 
erode areas on which it has built a reputation. 

The university campus is in Hesiingtoiu its 
caitrepiece an enormous man-made 
complete with ducks, geese and wQdfowL and 
dominated by the huge central halL multi- 
purpose concert hall, examination centre and 
meeting hall. 

There has been a conscious effort to 
generate a community spirit which appears to 
have worked. There are X600 students — 
2JJ00 under-graduates and 700 graduates. 

It is earning a growing reputation in 
biology, chemistry, electronics and computer 
sciences; in the social sciences, archaeology, 
English and music. 


York is indulging in one of 
its periodic celebrations: a 
Viking festival, an event with 
everything from processions 
and folk dancing to battle 
displays and a Grand Viking 
Beard competition. 

In a city where every effort 
is made in the search for 
more information about its 
past similarly no opportunity 
is passed over to commemo- 
rate what is known. The 
discovery of a Viking settle- 
ment seven years ago was not 
only an archeadogical sensa- 
tion but later, a tourist 
money-spinner. The city is a 
treasure chest 

When 1 lived in the city, a 
wall of my bathroom had to 
be left untouched because 
pans of it were of Roman 
origin: when the flooboards- 
in a bedroom were lifted to 
be replaced with new wood, a 
medieval well filled with 
non-stagnani water was 
discovered. 

The organization largely 
responsible for unearthing 
the citv's treasures is the 


Inside the treasure houses 


York Archaeological Trust 

The redevelopment of 
York in the 1960s could have 
threatened the unique strata 
of the city's history. The trust 
was created to stem the tide 
of thoughtless destruction. 

Since its inception, the 
Archaeological Trust which 
has a permanent staff of 30 
field officers, researchers and 
conservators, has carried out 
more than 30 major digs and 
many nfore minor ones. 

It has also undertaken 
nearly 200 "watching briefs" 
on sites where excavation 
was impossible or un- 
necessary. And when it does 
become possible there can be 
a gnawing frustration as well 
as excited anticipation. 

An illustration is the exten- 
sion of the nursing home 
near the Minster. The trust 
was given only three months 
to cany out explorations 
before building began. It is 


believed the site contains 
invaluable remains of the 
Roman fortress, the Anglo- 
Saxon cathedral a Viking 
building and a 17th-century 
mansion. 

Undoubtedly the biggest 
recent find is the Viking 
settlement The dig, which 
lasted five years, unearthed 
15.000 objects, 250,000 
pieces of pottery, five ions of 
animal bone and well-pre- 
served Viking Age buildings. 

Today, the site is covered 
by a modern shopping pre- 
cinct — beneath it is the 
Jorvik Viking Centre, a 
presentation of what the 
settlement would have 
looked like. Visitors climb 
into a "time car” to be 
transported back to 10th- 
century Jorvik. 

As for most of the discov- 
eries — and only about 200 
are on show in the centre — 
the trust intends to create an 


"archaelogical resources 
centre” built inside the 
nearby church of St 
Saviour's, where many of its 
objects are stored in poor 
conditions. 

Elsewhere, the trust is 
searching below the founda- 


tions of a vacated glassworks 
where it expects to find the 
site of a 13th-century 
Gilbertine Priory, the home 
of the only monastic order 
founded by an Englishman. 

Peter Addyman. director of 
ihe trust, treats his job as a 
"privilege”. What he and his 
team are undertaking is, in 
the strictest sense of the 
word, a revelation. 


York Minster sits over the 
centre of the city with a 
matemalistic benevolence 
rather than paternalistic 
pride. To live within its 
shadow is to be envied: to 
visit it is a delight, for some 
an emotional inspiration. 

Beneath its high vaults 
there can be found a rare 
religious and cultural experi- 
ence: the quality of music 
and singing captivate the 
ears, while the scale of 
architectural and artistic 
endeavour absorbs the eyes. 

The purist may rightly 
shudder at the knocking of a 
hole through the south aisle 
to give access to the Minster 
bookshop, or the recent 
decision to charge £1.50 a 
head for visiting tourist 
parties. But God has to 
coexist with Mammon. 

The Dean, the Very Rev 
John Southgate, would not 
demur at the description of 
mother hen. in both a 
religious and secular sense. 
He says: “The Minster is part 
of the community. It is a 
place for worsbip and a place 
for celebration and commem- 
oration. The Minster is very 
much part of civic life and 
both are fulfilled." 


Money 
pours in 
for the 
Minster 


month when dignatorics from 


n dignat 

the towns of both counties 


presented with a unique 
opportunity: the chance to 
inspect at eye level some of 
the restored pands of the 
Rose Window, whose glass 
was cracked by the heat from 
the burning timbers. 


The window commemo- 
rates the cessation of the 
Wars of the Roses when 
Lancastrian Henry Vil mar- 
ried Elizabeth of York in 
I486, an anniversary uhich 
was not o\ eriooked last 


congregated to criebratc the 
occasion. It was another 
example of the civic event. 

Fires apart — over five 
centuries the Minster has 
suffered two even more 
disastrous occurrences - the 
Minster has had to undergo a 
£2 million major surgical 
operation between l% 7 -72 to 
restore failing foundations. 
And the savages of lime and 
weather mean the cathedral 
spends £2 a minute to replace 
the deteriorating fabric. 

And throughout all these 
vicissitudes, the Minster has 
maintained us character, a 
demonstrable renunciation oi 
Ruskin's dictum that "resto- 
ration is a he".Thcre haw 
been other Ministers on the 
site: Anglo-Savcm. Norman 
(parts of which can stiil tv 
ven in the Crjpii and now 
Gothic. It is irreplaceable. 


York's greatest 
tourist attraction 


As for the charge on those 
coach parties to be intro- 
duced next year, the dean 
explains that there has been a 
misunderstanding. The initia- 
tive was taken to. meet the 
complaints of tour operators 
and to introduce what he 
called a "regime” to avoid 
inequalities of voluntary do- 
nations and undue waiting. 

But casting Mammon 
aside, the Minster is York's 
greatest tourist attraction. 
More than million people 
visit it each year. The 
appalling fire in the roof of 
the south transept I S months 
ago attracted worldwide, let 
alone the nation's, interest 
and sympathy. 

Money has been donated 
from all over the world - 
£50,000 has been spent on 
new lightning conductors - 
and oners of oak trees to 
replace the burnt-out roof 
trusses have come from all 
over Britain. 

New masonry. 150 tons of 
limestone, carved and shaped 
in the Minster's own work- 
shops. has been put back to 
replace the damaged walls. 

And in one way the 
visiting public has been

stands to take a look at the. 
stuff, as the adults were 
clamouring like kids around 
a mega-game. 

The onlygame you'll find 
for the PCW yet is Hitch- 
hiker's Guide to the Galaxy 
(Softsel, £24.95) though sev- 
eral other Infocom adven- 
tures are said to be just about 
ready at a price of £19.95, like 
Zork l, suitable for those who 
like processing words the 
adventurous way. 

But the PCW is not one of 
those micros you allegedly 
buy for a serious purpose and 
then only ever play games on. 
It is being used not just as a 
word processor but as a 
proper computer for the 
small business. as 
evidencedby something like 
the Sagesoft range of book- 
keeping and accounts pro- 
mts, which was one of the 
to appear.

Their 'Popular* Accounts 
package shows a typical 
pricing of £99.99 and pro 
provides an all-in-one book- 
keeping job, right through to* 
bank and VAT reconcilia- 
tions and trial balance. 

If you want a stock control 
program included, that's , an 
extra £50, and for £69.99 
there's also a payroll pro- 
gram. Sagesoft (091-284 
7077) also have a Database 
available and on February 10 
release a communications 
package, Chit-Chat. 

A similar range of account- 
ing programs at similar prices 
is available from Cam soft 
(0766-831878), the only dif- 
ference being that you can 
also buy these programs in 
separate units, such as one 


CBasic Compiler, too. 

Hi-Soft (0582-696421) also 
provide a Pascal, as well as a 
version of C. both at £39.95, 
and a couple of handy 
programs at £12.95. The 
Torch is a CP/M tutorial and 
disc management system 
combined, and The Knife is a 
disc sector editor. 

Most actively involved in 
the provision of software for 
the PCW is William Poel, ex- 
Amstrad and now in charge 
of NewStar Software (0277- 
213218). “We have literally 
some 8,000 CP/M pro-

Race is on 
for the 
fastest and 
cheapest 

Recent disclosures by top 
American computer experts 
indicate that the race is on to 
develop the world's fastest 
and cheapest supercomputer. 

Last, week researchers at 
the American General Sec- 
trie laboratory in Schenecta- 
dy, New York, were 
preparing plans to develop 
what could be deemed to be 
the most powerful computer 
in the world. So are research- 
ers at the California Institute 
of Technology (Caltech) in 
Pasadena, California. 

They are developing mod- 
els which will allow complex 
calculations to be done si- 
multaneously by intercon- 
necting microcom-puters. 

The revolutionary GE 
computer, called the Cross 
Omega Connection Machine, 
will have 256,000 processors 
or microcomputers connected 
to each other. The GE design 
is expected to be used by the. 
American armed forces in' 
weapon systems both on the 
ground and in space. 

The concept, originally de- 
vised at MIT and disclosed 
in the magazine Nature, last 
November will require a new 
approach to computer science 
— the mathematics that 
control how the machine 
responds and the languages 
that will be needed by the 
users.

liy frank Brown 
There is little hope of British 
I manufacturing sustaining the 
economy in the long term 
unless it embraces computer- 
integrated manufacturing 
technology (CIM). 

. This stark warning was 
given by Sir Henry Chilver, 
Vice-Chancellor of Cranfield 
Institute of Technology, 
speaking at the launch of a 
£3.6 million project to estate 
Usb an institute of computer- 
integrated manufacturing to 
help industry adopt h. 

Computer integrated man- 
ufacturing links together all 
the computerized and auto- 
mated elements of a 
company’s manufacturing op- 
erations into a single integrat- 
ed system. The CIM Institute 
is being set up by Cranfield 
in conjunction with IBM and 
aims to be self-supporting 
within three to four years. 

It will offer graduate and 
post-graduate training, plus 
extensive short course train- 
ing facilities for management. 
It will be an independent 
educational charity, and work 
closely with CTTs College of 
Manufacturing. 


The life-saver 
in your pocket 


By Bill Johnstone 

The computer scientists at 
Caltech have joined the race 
to develop advanced comput- 
er architecture. They are 
pursuing two distinctly differ- 
ent approaches to the subject. 
The first approach is based 
on traditional silicon technol- 
ogy. 

Microcomputers are inter- 
connected as if they were 
positioned at the comers of a 
cube. This “Cosmic Cube” 
approach, developed, by the 
Department of Computet J 
Science led by Charles Seitz, 
has proved highly successful 
The first machine based on 
that architecture was devel- 
oped about two years ago. ft 
had a tenth tire computer 
power ofthe Cray 1 . one of the 
most powerful computers in 1 
the world, but at about '[ 
l/100th of the cost. . 1 

A second generation ma- 
chine had one third the 
power of a Cray but at l/20th 
of the cost 

A new super machine will 
be built in the next few weeks 
.which could revolutionize 
computing and dictate the 
pace for further research. 
This machine is to be built 
for $0.5m, less than a tenth 
the price of the Cray. 

Caltech is taking another 
approach to supercomputing 
and is attempting' to discover 
the secret behind associated 
memory — the method used 
by the human brain when 
recalling information. The 
cracking of that code is 
believed by computer experts 
to be fundamental in creating 
advanced computer systems 
with superbrains. 

Who will win the 
supercomputer race is guess- 
work. What is dear is that 
the manufacturers are also 
interested in producing com- 
mercial versions of these 
supennachines soon. 

The multimillion dollar 
GE project will probably 
have its first home in a 
military base but the price of 
microchips is dropping so 
dramatically that these 
superdesigns might soon be 
available off-tbe-^helf and at 
low cost 

The supercomputer race is 
on. 


By Peter Patou 
A thin plastic card costing 
less than £2 coukl soon start 
saving lives in Mainland. 
The credit card-sized piece of 
plastic is an optical storage 
device which can hold up to 
800 typewritten pages of 
patient information - enough 
to store a patient's complete 
medical records. And the 
card can “speak” for patients 
too ill to speak for them- 
selves. 

The Lasercard was devel- 
oped by California-based 
Drexler Technology, which 
supplies photo and optical 
products for the manufacture 
of semiconductors. Its optical 
card business should over- 
take its other products by the 
end of this year, with 
projected sales of SIS mil- 
lion. 

The medical application is 
being carried out by Lifecard 
International, a subsidiary of 
Blue Cross of Maryland, pan 
of the US's leading private 
health organization, with 
. more than 86 million cus- 
tomers. 

The Lifecand system also 
requires a card reading and 
writing device and a comput- 
er-equipped with special soft- 
ware. It has developed three 
software packages to run on 
an IBM or compatible per- 
sonal computer, allowing in- 
formation to be retrieved 
from and recorded on to the 
card. 

The packages, which are 
designed for use by a general 
practioner, a hospital and a 
clinic respectively, are un- 
priced, but a complete pack- 
age with reader/writer, PC 
and software should be under 
$3,000. 

The development of spe- 
cialist packages is also being 
considered for gynaecologists 
and psychiatrists. Blue Cross 
has placed an order for 
60,000 card reader/writers 
worth $40 million over five 
years. 

Other applications envis- 
aged include the storage of X- 
ray pictures and automatic 
translation, which win allow 
a French doctor to read in his 
own language a card written 
m English, for example. 

The company estimates 
that 15 to 30 X-rays could be 
stored on a single card. X- 
rays of particular importance 
or ones which are frequently 
refered to such as chest X- 
rays coukl even be stored on 
a patient's card. 

Uke many conventional 
optical disc storage devices. 
Lasercard stores (fata as pits 
burned into an active layer 
by laser. How that active 
layer works is a carefully. 


guarded secret by Drexlei 
which received S3.2 million 
from Blue Cross as well as t 
$500,000 licence fee to star 
production of Lasercards. 

Drexler has also invested ; 
further S30 million in devel 
opment and production facil- 
ities. It plans to start full- 
scale production soon at is 
Californian plant. Plants ar. 
also . planned for Japan 
Europe and the east coast of 
America. Each will cost aboir 
$25 million and have > 
capacity of 40 million cards i 
vear by 1991. 

Advantages claimed f<r 
Lasercards over magnetic or 
smart card alternatives in- 
clude: 

• A storage capacity of tw» 
megabytes, which is said t* 
be 1,000 times the capacity a 
-the magnetic strip on a credi 
card and 30 times that of the 
memory chip in a smart card 

• Durability. 

• Difference in cost. Magnet 
ic cards cost 20 cents per 
thousand bytes and sxnar. 
cards 15 cents per thousanc 
bytes. Lasercard is one tend 
of a cent per thousand bytes 

Non-medical application! 
looked at include placing s 
complete car service history 
on to a card. “It gets rid of 
the centralized database and 
puts people back in control of 
their files.” said John Meindl 
managing director of 
Lifecard. 

In particular, Lifecard k 
developing a card aimed at 
carrying records of employees 
in the nuclear industry. 
Called Newcard, it can carry 
a full history of an 
employee's exposure to radia- 
tion. training details and 
access clearance. Mr Meindl 
is also considering putting 
data gleamed from scanning 
the human retina on 
Newcard so that it can be 
used as a high security 
identification card. 

Apart from Lifecard, 
Drexler has a further 19 
licensees to its technology. 
Publisher Robert Maxwell, 
for example, has commis- 
sioned STC to develop a read 
write/unit for Lasercard — 
one of the first applications is 
expected to be in scientific 
and technical publishing. 

In Japan, publisher 
Gakken is using the card to 
distribute part-time job infor- 
mation among students. The 
idea is to ml students used to 
the idea of using a Lasercard. 
A 4-megabyte version of the 
Lasercard is planned with 
Drexler confident that a IQ 
megabyte card is feasible — 
about 10 times the capacity 
of the best of today's floppy 
discs.

CRICKET: BEST AND PATTERSON AMONG 13 CHOSEN FOR FIRST ONE-DAY INTERNATIONAL 


Two new names in W Indies party 


From John Woodcock 
Cricket Correspondent 
St John's, Antigua 

Whenever the name of a 
batsman from Barbados ap- 
pears for the first time in a 
West Indian selection, it is as 
well to take careful 
notice.The chances are that 
he is something special, and 
that is what they say of 
Carlisle Best, who is one of 
two new names among the 13 
• players from whom West 
Indies will choose their team 
for the first one-day interna- 
tional in Jamaica a week 
today and the first Test 
match starting there three 
days later. The other is 
Patrick Patterson, the Jamai- 

England in 
charge 
as Foster 
strikes 

From John Woodcock 

Pressing for the first victory 
of their tour, against the 
Leeward Islands, England cap- 
tured three more wickets for 95 
runs in Lhe first two hours here 
yesterday. At lunch the Lee- 
wards were 233 for six. which 
gave them a lead of 54. 

The rhythm which Thomas 
bad found on Sunday evening 
eluded him when he began the 
bowling yesterday morning. 
His length, line and pace 
suffered accordingly. In five 
overs he conceded 30 runs. It 
was now Foster who clicked. 
He bowled fast and moved the 
ball about in the breeze. After 
Emburey had bowled Lewis, 
Foster removed Arthurton and 
Simon in the same over, his 
fourth of the morning. 

Lewis, on the back loot, was 
bowled as he made to pulL 
When Arthurton was bowled 
behind his legs and Simon, 
playing no stroke, lost his off 
stump, the Leewards, with six 
wickets down, were only IS 
runs ahead. Of their batsmen 
, only Otto was left, though 
against Botham's side here five 
years ago and again last Friday, 
Guishard showed himself to be 
a sticker.' 

Ouo is a West Indian edition 
of Brian Da vision of Rhodesia, 
Leicestershire. Tasmania and 
Gloucestershire — a senior 
batsman, bulging with muscle 
and belligerent intent. He holds 
the record for the number of 
runs made in a Shell Shield 
season — 576 at an average of 
81 in 1983-84.

By Rex Bellamy 
Tennis Correspondent 

The men's satellite series 
organized by the Lawn Tennis 
Association moved into its 
third week at Telford yes- 
terday. The next tournament 
will be at Queen's Club. West 
Kensington, and the 16 most 
successful players will then 
contest the concluding 
"masters" tournament at the 
David Lloyd dub, Wallington, 
from February 24 to 27. 

Freddie Sauer (Netherlands) 
beat Christian Bergstrom (Swe- 
den) in the Peterborough final 
but Bergstrom beat Sauer at 
B ram hall last week. These two 
were well ahead on points 
when the series reached 
Telford. Two more Swedes, 
Conny Falk and Peter 
Svensson. occupied third and 
fourth places, just ahead of the 
most successful British players, 
Richard Whichello and Leigh- 
ton Alfred. 

John Feaver. the tournament 
director, said yesterday that the 
series was fulfilling its purpose, 
with British competitors mak- 
ing the most of their chance of 
gaming experience by compet- 
ing with overseas players.

professional snooker

can fast bowler who is 
currently the talk of the 
Caribbean. 

Best is no infant prodigy. 
He will be 27 in May and has 
been playing Shell Shield 
cricket since 1980, two years 
after he went to England with 
the West Indies Young Crick- 
eters. He captained Barbados 
in 1983-84 when they won 
the Shield, and led them 
again in 1984-85. This sea- 
son. as last, he has scored 
more Shield runs than any- 
one. He is of medium height 
and a stroke-player, who bats 
at No 3 for Barbados unless 
Haynes or Greenidge is 
missing, in which case he 
opens the i nning s. 

If Best wins his first cap 


next week, it is most likely lo 
be at Logie’s expense. If so, 
he will probably be at No 6 
in the order. Like Richardson 
and Gomes, Logie is having a 
moderate domestic season; 
but because Best is having a 
good one, his inclusion in the 
1 3. had been generally expect- 
ed. 

Nothing could give a better 
indication of the strength of 
West Indian fast bowling 
than the omission of Walsh, 
who, with 29 wickets at 15 
apiece, is leading wicket-taker 
of the present Shell Shield 
season. Patterson has taken 
21 at IS. Of what they know 
of the two of them in 
England. Gower's team 


would probably prefer to play 
against Patterson rather than 
Walsh, which is not to say 
that they mil necessarily 
relish iL There are plenty of 
others waiting their turn, 
prominent among these being 
Gray, the huge Trinidadian 
who took 79 wickets for 
Surrey last year. Whichever 
of the faster bowlers England 
choose, they are bound to be 
dwarfed by those at 
Richards's command. 

Of these 13 West Indians, 
five are from Barbados (Best, 
Garner, Greeni dg e, Haynes 
and Marshall), three from 
Jamaica (Dujon, Holding and 
Patterson), two from Antigua 
(Richards and Richardson), 


two from Trinidad (Gomes

A broader view beyond the boundary 


By I vo Tennant 

In the last of his many Press 
conferences of the past three 
months. Kim Hughes described 
the breakaway Australians' tour 
of South Africa as the happiest 
he had been on, and the most 
peaceful. In Pakistan and 
India, things had been dif- 
ferent 

A tour of South Africa offers 
much. Excellent remuneration 
for a Start The hospitality is 
the best the country is beauti- 
ful, the grass is first-class. 
Unless there is a disruption by 
the ANC or fellow brethren, 
the sportsman cannot help but 
enjoy himself 

So, assuming the visiting 
sportsmen are of a reasonable 
standard, a tour of South 
Africa can hardly foil to 
succeed. The financing is not a 
problem, specially since, in this 
case, the government derided 
to fund it themselves through 
the taxpayers' pockets before 
such legislation was even pre- 
sented to parliament 

The Australians, even though 
they lost the series of repre- 
sentative matches and the one- 
day encounters, were certainly 


of a reasonable standard. When 
Australia proper came to En- 
gland last summer, it was frit 
that only one or two of those 
who had signed for South 
Africa would be missed. How 
wrong perceived opinion was. 

Two facets of the tour have 
impinged in particular. The 
first is the effort that the 
Australians, as well as die 
South Africans, have put into 
their game. They have not 
taken the money — $200,000 
for two tours — and run. Some 
of the cricket has been compel- 
ling. 

ui that same end-of-tour 
Press conference, Hughes 
delved into South African 
policy for the first time. The 
picture of South Africa on 
television screens back home 
was a distorted one, he said. 
Yet his outlook has sprung 
from journeying from police- 
guarded hold to ground to 
police-guarded hoteL The 
Australians have shown scant 
interest in life beyond the 
boundary. 

The Africans. Cape

shown little interest in this 
tour, through taste and obvious

objections, i Football is the 
Africans’ sport The chances of 
a Sowctan Sobers being un- 
earthed are, alas, minimal. Of 
the handful of non-whites who 
play in the Currie Cup. none 
was even approaching consid- 
eration for the Sooth African 
XI. Rice, (he captain, would 
not countenance the selection 
of a non-white on cosmetic 
rather than cricketing grounds. 

Further, the intransigence of 
the South African Cricket 
Board in not allowing its non- 
white members to play or even 
watch those affiliated to the 
South African Cricket Union — 
that is, whites — is holding 
back both the development of 
the game in the townships and 
negating attempts to regain 
admittance to the International 
Cricket Conference. The SACB 
regards cricket as an in- 
strument for bringing about 
political change; the SACU and 
the South African Sports Of- 
fice, headed by Eddie Barlow, 
the former Test cricketer, 
divorce politics from sport. 

All the while, the ICC move 
the goalposts for re-entry fur- 
ther away, paying scant heed to 
the SACU's achievements on 


integration. The point has been 
reached at which Test cricket 
will not be resumed until 
apartheid is folly abolished. So 
we have one breakaway tour 
after another and anomalies as 
well as disruption. In one 
breath Rice refers to this latest 
series as Test cricket; in 
another he says is eligible for 
England since elsewhere these 
are seen as unofficial matches. 

Breakaway tours further the ■ 
interest of cricket among the 
whites. But they are no , 
substitute for Tests against full 
strength countries or for tours 1 
abroad. In this series. South 
Africa averted defeat through 
the achievements of Pollock, 
aged 41, Rice. 36. McKenzie, 
37, and Le Roux, 30. With one 
or two exceptions, the next 
generation has yet to materi- 
alize. 

So the sponsors ensure that 
the remarkable Pollack is made 
offers he cannot refuse. He is a 
rich man and a great batsman 
who feels no bitterness at not 
having had the opportunity to 
improve on his Test average of 
60.97, second only to Bradman 
and achieved before he reached 
bis peak.

Jones will 
return 
to ring in 
March 

By Sriknmar Sen 
Boxing Correspondent 

Colin Jones, the former 
British, European and 
Commonwealth welterweight 
champion, who has been out of 
action for 14 months, returns 
to the ring on March 19 at 
Alexandra Pavilion, north Lon- . 
don. Sharing lop billing with 
him will be Tony Sibson, of 
Leicester, who also hud been 
out for a similarly long period 
but made a spectacular come- 
back with a two-round victory 
over Juan Elizondo, of Mexico, 
last month. 

Jones, whose opponent has 
yet to be named, will be hoping 
to make as exciting a return as 
Sibson's. He said yesterday 
from his home in Gorseinon. 
South Wales, that be was in top 
shape and would be match-fit 
by March 19. “By the summer I 
expect to be back in the top 
three or four in the world," 
Jones said. 

The man Jones really wants 
to meet is Lloyd Honeyghan, of 
Bermondsey, the British, Euro- 
pean and Commonwealth 
champion. “He cannot really 
call himself the champion until 
he's beaten me. After all those 
were the titles I gave up. 
Honeyghan will . make a nice 
warm-up for the serious stuff" 
Jones said. 

Sibson. too, has plans to get 
into the top three or four of the 
middleweighis. At Alexandra 
Pavilion, he could meet one of 
two world-ranked men like 
Dwight Davidson or James ■ 
Kinchen, both Americans, or 
be could take on someone i 
beaten by Hero! Graham, the 
British and European cham- 
pion, to score points off his i 
arch-rival 

Frank Warren,Sibson's pro- 
moter, has two people in mind: 
Jose Seys. of Belgium, whom 
Graham stopped, and 
Sanderline Williams, of the ! 
United States, against whom 
Graham looked unimpressive 
at the Ulster Hall, Belfast. 

Like Jones, Sibson wants his 
European title back and cannot 
wait to challenge Graham. 
“He's slippery," Sibson said 
about Sheffield's European 
champion, “but he won't get 
rid of me. The sooner we meet 
the better. I can't wait to play 
the piano on his ribs. Graham 
has got to think where he has 
been all these years. If he wants 
to come out of the shadows be 
has got to fight me." 

According to Warren, “It is 
ridiculous that Graham is 
world No 3. when he is. not 
even the best middleweight in 
the Midlands." Thai claim will 
be put to the test in September, 
if Graham does not give up his 
European title by then to 
concentrate on weightier mat- 
ters like Marvin Hagler. 

Sibson aims to keep himself 
in top shape for any eventual- 
ity with a contest a month. He 
said yesterday he did not mind 
boxing Graham's stablemate, 
Brian Anderson, for the British 
title, if Graham gave that title 
up as he is expected to. “I need 
one more - notch for the 
Lonsdale (Belt I promised my 
mum." Sibson said.

bowls j Beashel on 


Welsh count their wounded 
as Bath time beckons 


By David Hands, Rugby Correspondent 


London Welsh, drawn yes- 
terday to meet Bath, the 
holders, in the quarter-finals of 
the John Player Special Cup, 
are still recovering from the 
rigours of last Saturday's 
fourth-round tie with 
Camborne. The Welsh, beaten 
by Bath in last year's cup final 
ended the Camborne game 
with three injured players who 
are unlikely lo be available 
against The Welsh Academicals 
on Sunday. 

Welsh players were particu- 
larly bitter at Camborne’s 
physical approach which cul- 
minated, they claim, with a 
kick delivered to Cotyn Price 
after the final whistle had gone. 
At the time Price, their stand- 
off half, was lying on the 
ground recovering from the last 
tackle of the game. Though 
unwilling to dramatize the 
situation. Price said he saw feet 
approaching and was only 
saved from severe rib iqjury by 
putting up his hand to protect 
himself; he was unable to use 
that hand yesterday. 

Earlier in the game the 
Welsh had lost Bowing, their 
long-serving back-row player. 
He suffered a gashed cheek 
from a stray boot early in the 
game and ended with a torn rib 
cartilage and two suspected 
broken ribs after being tram- 
tried on. Clive Rees, tbe 
London Welsh captain, be- 
lieves Bowring may not play 
again this, season. 

Rees said his dub contem- 
plates no formal action but 
regrets the aftermath which 
leaves London Welsh's 
preparations for the game 
against Bath on February 22 in 
tatters. In addition to the 
possibility of Price and 
Bowring being unfix. Llewellyn, 
their lock, has damaged shoul- 
der muscles. Coincidentally, all 
three players were reluming to 
the first team after long 
absences. 

Unhappily for the Welsh, in 
their centenary season, their 
own disciplinary record is not 
all it might be. Llewellyn was 
suspended by the club after 
being sent off against Newport 
in November and Collins, 
another lock, was sent off 
against Bedford last month. 
There have been difficulties, 
too. among the club's lower 
‘ sides so that players are aware 
that their behaviour on the 
field is under scrutiny. 

The situation is exacerbated. 
Revs believes, by the different 
refereeing interpretations they 


have encountered this season. 
Like other London clubs they 
are frequently given exchange 
referees, from other pans of the 
country or indeed the world, 
since they recently bad Bob 
Fordham, the Australian inter- 
national official, who handled 
their game in January against 
Bath (who. weakened by inter- 
national calls, lost 26-9). When 
frustration in one area en- 
counters frustration in another, 
the result is, inevitably, 
combustible. 

Camborne officials said yes- 
terday that any accusations of 
foul play would be discussed 
very seriously, though they 
were disappointed to hear of 
the Welsh claims. Stephen 
West, their secretary, said: 
“What is being alleged doesn't 
seem like our team. We are noi 
pansies but it's not the way we 
have won anything this 
season." Camborne have had 
one colts player sent off this 
season but no senior players 
and Mr West pointed out that 
Mankee. their scrum half, had 
been raked during Saturday's 
game without making any 
complainL 

Certainly it was a hard, at 
times over-robust, encounter, 
one expects nothing less from a 
Cornish team. Punches were 
thrown but it was for from the 
worst game of its kind 1 have 
seen. Where the Welsh suffered 
was that their technical 
superiority did not receive its 
due reward against players who 
sometimes bad to go outside 
the law to hold their own — as, 
for instance, at the set scrums 
where the Welsh front row, one 
of the most competent in the 

country, found themselves 
penalised more than once 
when it seemed the penalty 
should have, gone the other 
way. 

Curiously, at the quarter- 
final draw, the only three teams 
to have obtained results on 
Saturday came out of the bag 


first London Welsh's home lie 
with Bath was followed by 
Harlequins, who will play the 
winners of the Broughton Park 
v Leicester game. 

This, like the other outstand- 
ing fourth-round games, will be 
played on February 22. the 
date of the quarter-finals, 
although Northampton and 
London Scottish have yet to 
resolve their tie. The Scottish 
have suggested playing this 
Saturday but Northampton, 
mindful of the effect of a 
televised international on then- 
gate (and that the same 
international-will deprive them 
of Pearce, their England prop) 
are keen to play the following 
weekend. 

The Rugby Football Union 
have given dispensation for 
games to be played in midweek 
or on Sundays in an effort to 
avoid cup fixtures piling up. As 1 
things stand, delayed quarter- 
final games will probably be 
played on March 8, the day of 
the county championship semi- 
finals. The only club to - be 
seriously affected by that clash 
is Blackfaealh, who supply most 
of tbe Kent team, and they 
have first to get past Wasps. 

The Schweppes Welsh Cup, 
whose fourth round is on 
February 22, faces problems 
next season because of a 
threatened boycott by leading 
clubs. The Welsh Rugby Union 
general committee have con- 
firmed their wish to riiany the 
seeding procedure, exempting 
the last 16 in this season's 
competition from the 1986-87 
preliminary rounds. The club 
merit table organization, which 
includes all the leading names 
with the exception of Cardiff 
Tredegar and South Wales 
Police, have already said they 
will withdraw from the cup if 
the change goes through.

NZ players 
look to 
next year 

By Gordon Allan 

Some of the players in the 
Embassy world indoor singles 
championship, which ended at 
Coatbridge on Sunday, win 
come together again in a new 
event during the first week of 
April — the world indoor pairs 
championship. The venue is 
the Conference Centre at 
Bournemouth, equipped with 
the transportable rink used fen: 
the United Kingdom singles at 
Preston. Format and sponsors 
have yet to be announced. 

Tony Allcock of England 
beat Phil Skoglund of New 
Zealand 21-15 in the Goal- 
bridge final and collected the 
first prize of £11,000, a world 
record in bowls. Skoglund said 
last week that New Zealanders 
had long regarded the Embassy 
as almost impossible to win 
because indoor conditions were 
strange to them. But by Sunday 
be had shifted his ground and 
was implying that he and Peter 
Beiliss, despite losing, had 
achieved a partial breakthrough 
arid were eager to complete the 
job anoi her year. 

There have been four losing 
finalists from overseas in the 
eight years of the champion- 
ship: Philip Chok (Hong Kong) 
in 1980, Burnham Gill (Can- 
ada) in 1982, Cedi Bransky 
(Israel) last year, and Skoglund. 
A breakthrough is inevitable. 
Skoglund and Beiliss are due to 
return next February to tty 
again. 

Allcock is head teacher at a 
school for handicapped chil- 
dren at Stroud. In these days of 
sportsmen who talk about 
nothing but sport, it was 
pleasant to bear him say that at 
home he never talks about 
bowls. “It's only one part of 
my fife," he told us. “There are 
many other pans. People who 
know me wall bear that (nil" 

He had no easy matches. 
Each tested his nerve and his 
wilL David Cutler of England 
was favoured by many to win 
the title, but Allcock beat him 
after absorbing the simple 
advice of David Bryant: "For- 
get Cutler’s brilliant outdoor 
record- This is the indoor 
game." 

Cutler. Noel Burrows. Befiiss 
and Skoglund — each in turn 
asked searching questions of 
Allcock on the greens but he 
answered them cooly. and 
skilfully. In many ways his 
performance over the whole 
week was a model for aspiring 
singles champions.

Australia UL Alan Bond’s 
latest America's Cup defence 
contender, look control of the 
12-metre world championship 
here yesterday with a convinc- 
ing win in the third heat of this 
seven-race series. As Australia 
III, skippered by Colin Beashel, 
swept to victory, its close 
rivals. New Zealand II and 
America IL were unable to 
break dear of the pack. 

Tbe promised sea breeze 
failed to fill in before the start 
and after one postponement a 
second shift in the wind 
favouring the port side of the 
course brought a new line-up to 
the front of the fleet 

First to round tbe weather 
mark was Peter de Savsiy’s 
former Cup challenger Victory 
83, the winner of the world 
championship off Porto Cervo 
last year, but unfortunately its 
Italian skipper, Tommaso 
Chieffi. bad already put himself 
out of contention by starting 
prematurely. The leader there- 
fore was New Zealand L 
skippered by Chris Dickson. It 
was followed by Australia III 
and True North, tbe Canadian 
entry steered by the Flying 
Dutchman gold medal winner 
Terry McLaughlin. 

It was on the second beat, 
when the sea breeze had begun 
to build up. that Australia 111 
took command of the race, 
establishing a 23-second advan- 
tage over New Zealand I, 
skippered by Graeme 
Woodroflfe. at the next weather 
mark. 

As the winds continued to 
increase, Australia □ and 
French Kiss came up in 
contention but in the jibing 
duel that followed the Kiss 
crew foiled to have their genoa 
ready for hoisting at the wing 
mark and then lost more time 
when tbe sail Mew out over the 

water. 

Australia n was quick to 
seize the opportunity to move 
ahead but that min was soon 
lost when her headsail came 
out of its luff groove on the 
beat to the finish, allowing

Race of the decade 
in prospect as 
crews take shape 


ByJimRaiiron 


The Oxford crew who will be 
seeking an eleventh successive 
win in this year's Boat Race 
will include the oldest man 
ever to row in the event: 
Donald MacDonald, a 30- year- 
old Scot. MacDonald is' two 
years older than Boris Rankov 

was in his last appearance for 
Oxford. 

For the first time in over a 
decade, however. Cambridge 
have been made favourites for 
the Boat Race, which this year 
takes place on March 29,' by 
the event’s sponsors. 
Ladbrokes. Cambridge are 
quoted at 5-4 on: Oxford are 
evens. 

The closeness in the betting 
suggests that Ladbrokes expect 
the 132nd Boat Race to be a 
close one. But much water will 
ebb and flow under Putney 
Bridge before the race itself/ 

Oxford have only two Blues 
on board this year they arc 
Bruce Phi Ip. the only oarsman 
to row for Oxford and Cam- 
bridge in a Boat Race, and the 
Wykehamist. Matt Thomas. 
Oxford's chief coach, Daniel 
Topolski. is disappointed that 
three Blues at New College — 
the oarsmen Jones. Clay, and 
Cartledge — are not available 
because of academic pressures. 

Oxford will be looking for 
real power from their 26-year- 
old Californian, Chris Clark, 
and George Livingston, who 
will be backing the stroke, 
Thomas, in the engine room. 
Clark gained a full inter- 
national vest in the 1985 world 
championships, and he and 
Livingston are Pan-American 
medal winners as well as 
United States Olympic 
triaUisls. 

MacDonald boasts, as for as 
I know, another first apart 
from being the oldest man to 
take part in the event: he has 
three children, and I cannot 
recall a Boat Race oarsman 
with a trio of infants to his 
credit. He is a mature siudcm 
reading English at Mansfield 
College and rowed in last year's 
winning Isis crew. 

Cambridge have an impres- 
sive line-up which includes the 
most experienced oarsmen in 
either crew, the 28-year-okl 
John Pritchard, in the six-seat. 
Since 1979 Pritchard has won 


three Henley titles, being the 
victor in the Grand twice. He 
was an Olympic <1950) and 
world silver medal winner 
(1981) in eights. Also in the 
engine room is the talented 
Canadian freshman. Edward 
Gibson, a world lightweight 
medal winner. Olympic oars- 
man and world finalist in 
coxlcss fours: further strength 
comes from Paddy Broughton 
and Sieve Peel, who arc both 
Blues and British inter- 
nationals. In addition. Cam- 
bridge have a formidable stern 
four. 

Cambridge have selected a 

21- year-old medical student. 
Carol Bunon. to cox them this 
year. The Oxford cox will he a 

22- vcar-old History- student. 
Andy Green. He coxed the 
Oxford University women's 
eight to victory in lhe Boat 
Race at Henley last year. 

So Oxford have a real fight 
on their hands against a well 
organized, highly motivated 
Light Blue nine. For lhe next 
three weeks. Cambridge come 
under the tutelage of the 
Canadian gold medal winning 
coach in eights. Neil Campbell. 

The Boat Race crews had 
mixed fortunes over the week- 
end. Cambridge dominated 
London University at Ely. but 
had to have a break from work 
on Sunday since Broughton 
was recovering from flu and in 
some distress. On the Tideway. 
Oxford were given something 
to think about by lhe British 
lightweight eight designate.

The long and short of 
Langer’s problem 

From John Ballantme San Diego 


Bernhard langer may play 
the world circuit for the next 
10 years, but he will never 
forget the play-off be lost here 
to big Bob Tway in the rain- 
shortened San Diego open on a 
Turaeresque evening with the 
sun selling along the Pacific 
Ocean at Toney Pines. 

Later, Longer gave out good 
news and bad news. The first 
was that his wife, Viklti. will 
bear their first child in Ger- 
many on July 14, three days 
before the Open at Turn berry. 
The second was that he has 
resigned himself to being able 
to play in only about 13 
American tournaments this 
season, two less than the 16 
demanded of Severiano 
Ballesteros by the commis- 
sioner. Dean Beman, which 
brought about last year’s 
controversial banning of the 
Spaniard. 

“The Internal Revenue is 
allowing me only 121 days in 
the United Slates this year and 
there's no way, with rest and 
practice days, that I can play 
more than 13 events," Laager 
explained. He declared that, 
ideally, be would love to play 
in up to 25, but added that, if 
the 121 days decision is not 
changed (an announcement 
will be made at the end of this 
month), he still would not play 
the entire European tour, not 
this year at any rate. “I will be 
taking several weeks off to 
spend with my family," be 
smiled. 

Langer pointed out that all 
foreign players here will be 
affected similarly, although 
Greg Norman and players who 
live over here and play nearly 
all their golf in the United 
Stales are in an entirely 
different category. 

Langer. who' was only two 
strokes behind Larry Mize's 
halfway lead after his brilUani 
66 on Friday, and Tway, an 
impressive Oklahoma new- 
comer at 6ft 4in and 13 si, 
finally tied on 204 for 54 holes. 
The European, who won the 
Masters and Sea Pines titles in 
successive weeks last April, had 
badly needed a birdie four at 
the 499 yard 18th. the green of 
which is guarded by a small but 
iniquitous pond, to put maxi- 
mum pressure on young Tway, 
who played just behind him. 

But he cut his drive, leaving 
himself 250 yards to die water. 
He was obliged to lay up with a 
five-iron and then to pitch with 
a wedge. First the crowd roared 


as his ball struck within a foot 
of the flag, then groaned as it 
screwed back just off the from 
of the green. from where he 
took two putts. 

Tway had driven into trees 
to lose a stroke at the 17thand 
this left him needing a birdie 
four to win at the last or a par 
to tie. He drove into a bunker, 
also laid up and then pitched 
much too boldly to the back of 
the green. He charged his 30 
footer six feet past. Langer 
looked on impassively as Tway 
holed out for par and they 
marched off to the 15th to 
begin the play-off. 

The German had a good 
chance to win the SSI. 000 first 
prize on that first green.but bis 
10 footer lookd into the hole 
before veering an inch wide. 
He was beaten on the next 
green when he hit a 30 footer 
five feet past the pin and 
missed the return in deep 
shadows to lake a bogey to 
Tway’s solid par. 

The Masters champion then 
took the opportunity to de- 
scribe in detail his “big 
problem”, the crux of which is 
that if he stays here one day 
longer than his tax allotment of 
121 days he will have to pay 
US tax, as well as German tax. 
on bis world-wide earnings. 

He has already, in five 
weeks, taken the tidy sum of 
SI 1 2.692 out of American prize 
money, enough to wet the 
baby's head in five months' 
time, and he now has a 
handsome lead in the new $2 
million Vantage Cup com- 
petition. which carries the first 
prize of S 500,000 but which, 
because of his shortage of days, 
he has no chance of winning. 
These are short but long days 
for Langer.

ATHLETICS: MEDAL PROSPECTS IN PLENTY FOR BRITISH TEAM 


stage 


strike gold 

By Pat Butcher, Athletics Correspondent 


Beverley Kinch is the only 
ou islanding gold medal hope 
in what is one of the largest 
teams that Britain has select- 
ed for the European indoor 
championships in Madrid on 
March 12-21. 

There are certainly plenty 
of medal possibilities among 
the 20 athletes concerned, 
especially KirV.y McDermott 
and David Sharpe at 800 
metres. Rob Harrison at 
1.500 metres, and Billy Dee 
and Yvonne Murray in the 
3.000 metres. But Miss Kinch 
will probably bear the onus 
of favourite for the 60 
metres. 

She won the title in 
Gbteborg three years ago. 
setting a UK best of 7.16 
seconds. But she missed out 
last year in Athens due to 
injury, when Neliie Cooman 
of the Netherlands, who was 
third in Goteborg, beat 
Marlics Goehr to the title. 
The tiny Miss Cooman will 
always fare better indoors at 
bt) metres than over 1 00 
metres But the form that 
Miss kinch showed in win- 
ning the national title two 
weeks ago suggests that on 
Madrid's very fast sprint 
surface she could gel dose (o 
7.JI) seconds. 

The team is unlikely to 
match last year’s fine result 


of three gold and two bronze 
medals. But big improve- 
ments this season by Jennifer 
Stoule (200 metres), Angela 
Piggford (400 metres). Lesley- 
Anne Skeete (60 metres 
hurdles!. Mary Berkley Hong 
jump! Myrtle Augee 

(shot! have warranted their 
inclusion on the commend- 
able basis that introducing 
youngsters to pressure in 
relatively low key champion- 
ships like these will pay off 
later at bigger events. 

The same goes among the 
men for Steve Buckeridge (60 
metres hurdles) and Steve 
Heard and Brian Whittle at 
400 metres, where they will 
have a hard act to follow, 
since Todd Bennett set a 
world indoor best of 45.56 
when winning in Athens last' 
year, a time which was 
bettered by Thomas 
Schoenlebe of East Germany 
with 45.41 seconds in Vienna 
on Sunday. 

It is just as well that the 
current assaults on the world 
pole vault best are not being 
mounted at Cosford. For 
Sergei Bubka of the Soviet 
Union and the Americans 
Billy Olson and Joe Dial 
wouid literally be taking the 
record through the roof. 

At the beginning of the 
year the world best stood to 



Beverley Kinch: favoured to shine in die sprints 


Thierry Vigneron of France 
at 5.85 metres, with which he 
won the European title in 
Goilenburg. Olson did 5.86 
metres in early January. 
Bubka followed with 5.87 
metres. On successive week- 
ends Olson replied with S.88 
and 5.89 metres. Dial then 
got in on the act eight days 
ago wiih 5.91 metres. Bubka 
vaulted 5.92 metres in Mos- 
cow on Saturday, but Olson 
took it up later that night to 
5.94 metres in New Jersey.

Wasps 9 victory 
is bad news 

By a Special Correspondent 


Case in favour 
of Jackson 


By Michael Coleman 


It was one of those classical 
“good news, bad news” eve- 
nings at Durham Ice Rink on 
.Sunday. Dunum Wasps beat 
Dundee Rockets 8-4 to stretch 
their lead in the premier 
division of the Hcincken 
League to three points: but they 
lost their star centre. Paul 
Smith, with a fractured left leg. 
following a collision with the 
barrier. 

The Durham loss was the 
second weekend defeat for the 
Rockets, following a surprising 
setback at Nottingham on 
Saturday, where they found 
Jamie Crapper at his best- He 
was involved in ail seven goals, 
"scoring four of them. 

It was a remarkable weekend 
for Tim Salmon of Ayr Bruins. 
He scored three goals and two 
assists in Saturday’s 6-5 win at 
Fife and followed this with six 
goals and nine assists in 
Sunday's rout of Peterborough 
Pirates. This took him past 1 00 
league assists and took his 
pom's tolaJ to 174 ... one 
behind the record 175. held 
jointly by Roy Halpm and 
Dave Stoyanovich. 

Poor Peterborough still 
search for their first premier 
division wm and suffered a 
dreadful blow on Saturday 
when Ken McKie dislocated 
his shoulder. The injury could 
keep him out for the re<t of the 
season. 

Murray field’s Tony Hand 
had another productive eve- 
ning against the Pirates and his 
lour goals and nine assists took 
him past ihc 100-poini mark. 

Murray field were not so 
lucly on Sunday, finding Not- 
tingham Panthers goaltender. 
Brian Co\. in spectacular form. 
He saved -X of 50 shots. 


Another goaltender to shine 
was Cleveland Bombers' Char- 
lie Colon, who was voted man 
of the match at Fife. But not 
even his efforts could prevent 
Ihc Flyers from gaining a 10-7 
wm. wmch kepi them in fifth 
place. 

But Slrealham Redskins - 
winners by the odd goal m 13 
over a surprisingly resolute 
Whitley Warriors - are only 
two points behind and look 
ahead to next weekend with 
confidence. They entertain 
Dundee and Fife and see it as 
an opportunity to confirm their 
play-off chances.

Barrett’s bout 

Mike Barren, the pro- 
moter. has won the purse 
offer for the British lighl- 
welterweight title bout be- 
tween Terry Marsh, of 
Basildon, and Tony Laing. of 
Nottingham, who . recently 
won a final eliminator. Bar- 
ren. who paid £10.600 for the 
contest, intends to stage it at 
the Albert Hall on Apnl 9 but 
may have to give way to a 
European title defence by 
Marsh that month. 


No sport can boast as big a 
graveyard of talent as ice figure 
skating. It is hoped, therefore, 
that the selectors of the 
National Skating Association 
keep their experienced heads 
on their shoulders when they 
pick tonight the team for the 
world championships in Ge- 
neva next month. 

Who to send: the national 
champion. 1 4-year-old Joanne 
Conway; who finished eleventh 
in the recent European 
championships in Copenhagen, 
or Susan Jackson .deposed for 
the national uile by Conway 
last December, who came 
seventh in Copenhagen? Put 
simply, a lot of money has 
been invested in sending Con- 
way. 

One of the drawbacks to the 
over-exposure of young talent 
in the media and especially on 
television is the sense of failure 
that engulfs the competitor 
when expectations are not 
fulfilled 

There were alarming signs of 
this in Copenhagen when Miss 
Conway's parents, there by 
courtesy of ITV, began 
apologizing to the press after 
their daughter bad in their 
view, failed to deliver the 
goods. 

With Miss Conway’s best 
interests at heart, the onus is 
now on the selectors to resist 
any ITV pressure and the 
media's infatuation with the 
girl who sprang from nowhere 
and choose Jackson for Ge- 
neva. For these reasons: 

1. Her range of jumps is wider 
than Conway's, especially the 
combinations of double 
axel/double toe loop and triple 
toc/double toe loop plus the 
double lutz which Conway 


apparently has not mastered 

2. Coolness under intense 
pressure. Unlike Conway, she 
made no mistakes in Copen- 
hagen: distracted by her youn- 
ger challenger’s presence, she 
opted for double rather than 
triple salchow, good battle 
tactics. 

3. By finishing inside the fust 
10. she ensured two places for 
Britons at next year's Europe- 
ans. This itself deserves re- 
ward She also has a much 
better chance than has Conway 
of finishing inside the firs: 10 
at Geneva, thereby earning two 
British places in the 1987 
worlds. 

4l Jackson, not yet 21, is 
evidently improving and will 
peak by the Calgary Olympics. 
The Russians have long dis- 
pelled the myth that at 21 you 
are finished in this sport On 
the contrary, age is an advan- 
tage when under intense media 
pressure. 

5. She is made in Britain. 
Unlike Conway, now training 
with the Fassis in Colorado 
Springs, Jackson, a Nottingham 
girl, is coached by Arnold 
Gerschwiler. as wire a head as 
any in figure skating, at 
Richmond London. 

6. The NSA has a distinct duty 
to discourage the poaching of 
talent abroad and to encourage 
the presence on British rinks of 
home-produced skaters on 
whom other youngsters can 
model themselves. 

7. Lastly, Conway must be 
protected from the glare of a 
world championship and the 
saturation TV coverage to 
which she would inevitably be 
subjected Her day will come, 
but not until the Olympics 
after next. 


BASKETBALL 

Only two 
squads 
have a true 
chance 

11 

By Nicholas Harling 

To all intents and purposes, 
there are two teams left m the 
chase for the Carfsbetg Na- 
tional League championship. 
Mathematically Portsmouth 
can still make it, but three 
defeats in four days — two of 
them against rival contenders 

— have left Team Poly cell 
Kingston and Sharp Manches- 
ter as the teams likely to 
resolve the issue when they 
meet in what amounts to a 
championship decider next Sat- 
urday. 

I Portsmouth's 112-101 defeat 
at Manchester United on 
Saturday, which followed hard 
on their reverses against Kings- 
ton last Wednesday and at 
1 Brnbnd Docks Uxbridge and 
Camden on Friday, left their 
coach, Danny Palmer, 
acknowledging the end of bis 
i team’s title ambitions. "It's out 
of the question now." he said 
: “We're out of 0001601100.” 

Beaten only twice previously 
all season in the league. 
Portsmouth ultimately suc- 
cumbed to the losses of 
important playera for several 
matches. Wells. Moore and 
now Slaughter have all been 
forced out at various times, 
and Irish is playing in pain 
with a knee injury bad enough 
to force him out of tomorrow's 
England team to face Switzer- 
land in the World Champion- 
ship game at Leicester. 
“Kingston and Manchester 
United haven't suffered a 
major injury all season, but we 
have been hurt," Palmer said 

What makes Portsmouth's 
demise doubly frustrating for 
Palmer is that Moore could 
have returned much sooner 
than he (fid - last Wednesday 

- after having glass splinters 
removed from an eye after he 
crashed his car in November. 
“1 blame myself totally for 
that,” the coach said “because 
I didn't seek a second opinion. 

[ was told he couldn't play 
until Apnl until 1 saw another 
doctor who said that he was 
ready.” 

Moore, watched by the 
England coach. Bill Beswirk. 
who had been persuaded by 
Palmer to attend Saturday's 
game, was soon back in the 
groove, following his 17 points 
against Uxbridge with 39 
against United, including six 
shots worth three points. It was 
largely through the young 
guard's efforts that Portsmouth 
built up a six-point lead just 
before the interval 

Against a zonal defence after 
the interval Portsmouth floun- 
dered as Will Brown found the 
form that made him an easy 
choice as the sponsor's man of 
the match and ensuring 
United’s I6U1 successive league 
win. Unfortunately for Ports- 
mouth, Moore's rejuvenation 
has coincided with a bleak spell 
for Irish, who finished with 21 
points against his old club, far 
too few to satisfy Palmer, who 
complained: “He needs 10 play 
like a top-dass American but 
he is not doing it.” 

Like Irish, Doug Lloyd, of 
Kingston, . who has also 
dropped out of the England 
team, was fit enough to play for 
his dub Saturday, helping them 
defeat Birmingham Ballets 1 1 5- 
106. Told that Lloyd was 
see kins an acupunturist for his 
painful back. Jane Chamber- 
lain. the wife of Kingston’s 
coach, offered to walk over him 
wearing stiletto heels. Lloyd’s 
consent is still awaited. 

Birmingham are just one of 
seven dubs battling over the 
last three positions for the play- 
offs. Kingston, United, Ports- 
mouth, Manchester Giants and 
Crystal Palace being certain 
qualifiers. Walkers Crisps 
Leicester had looked assured 
for a place, but Saturday's 9*- 
95 home defeat by Nissan 
Bears Worthing was their sixth 
successive reverse. Like Wor- 
thing. Hcmel-Watford Royals 
improved their chances, defeat- 
ing Manchester Giants 104-95.

David Miller on the qualities that are taking Britain’s best ski racer to the top 

Confident Bell is closing the gap 


Bill Johnson's Olympic gold 
medal in the downhill at Sarajevo, 
which made him a millionaire, 
seems less dazzling to the humble 
British viewer when it is known that 
the American learn spends 50 times 
as much as ihc Bmish on its Alpine 
season. 

Marlin Bell’s sixth place in 
Saturday's World Cup downhill at 
Avoriaz. the third lime he has 
finished in the top 15 this season, 
gives him hope, at least, of being 
granted a facility that will further 
close the gap between him and the 
world’s best skiers: a personal valet, 
better termed a service technician, 
for his skis. 

Winning medals #nd champion- 
ships is. in case you had not noticed 
when watching Ski Sunday on 
television, as much about skis as 
skiers. Probably more so. The reason 
why ihc lop racers so conspicuously 
ripihcir skis oft their feel and hold 
them, up in front of the cameras, 
faster than they turn on an icy bend, 
is no! jusl because ski manufactur- 
ing is a national industry among cut- 
throat rivals in Alpine countries. It 
is because of what the manufacturers 
do for the skiers. 

They pay them, of course, but 
there is far more to if than that. Bell 
is a pauper in the spon in which he 
competes, not because the elite 
champions he is trying to catch 
make tens of thousands of dollars a 
year while he has had to subsidize 
his own budget, but because he is 
working with inferior skis, in quality 
and number, and is dependent on 
the chanty of goodwill off the 
course. As well to be a short-priced 
Derby runner without a blacksmith, 
or an Olympic sprinter with the 
wrong spikes. 

All the leading national trams 
have a ski technician specially 
assigned to service (hem. financed 


by each of the manufacturers 
supplying one of their skiers. After 
each day’s training or racing, the 
lechnican will prepare up to 20 pairs 
of skis for the following day for each 
racer, sometimes working half the 
night Several experts wilL the next 
morning, take the snow tempera- 
tures on the course, and a decision 
on which ski a racer should use will 
be made at the last possible moment 
before the start. 

At Kitzbuhel this season, three 
manufacturers. Head. Fischer, and 
Blizzard, had a private test course of 
200 metres near the bottom of the 
run. and flew by helicopter the 
selected ski nominated by experts to 
their racers on top of the mountain 
half an hour before the start. Such 
refinement can be vital when, as on 
Saturday, only one second separates 
16 runners between fourth and 
twentieth position. 

By contrast, Bell often has to 
choose his ski the night before, from 
a selection of about 10 pairs, 
gambling on the conditions and the 
weather forecast, and relying on the 
friendliness of the technician with 
the Swiss or Austrian or Canadian 
team to prepare them for him. Often 
he is spending the afternoon or 
evening following a tough day on 
the course, working on his own skis 
for several hours. 

Walter Hubman, the new Austrian 
coach to the British team this year, 
with whom Bell has found a 
comfortable understanding, says: 
“To have our own technician would 
give Martin more lime to recover 
each day. mentally and physically, 
and give him a wider choice on race 
days. Maybe he can now be given 
one." 

Bell is supplied with skis by 
Fischer, an Austrian firm, but out of 
any batch of a hundred specialist 
racing skis, there will be halfa dozen 


men in line in hnont of him to 
receive those with the best qualities, 
revealed by artificial testing. The 
manufacturers have a vested interest 
in winners. 

As Bell says, siding is so much, as 
in most sports, about money. The 
British Alpine team's annual budget 
is £106.000. Hie United States 
team's is £5 million. Gordon's Gin 
has given a £1 10,000 sponsorship to 
the British Ski Federation, but this 
has to be shared between Alpine, 
Nordic, freestyle and biathlon disci- 
plines. Almost 20 per cent of the 
budget goes on administration — a 
liny enough sum — which does not 
leave much for transporting, housing 
and feeding a squad of racers, 
manager, doctor and trainer around 
the World Cup circuit. Each racer 
has to contribute £1,000. 

if Bell were to establish himself; 
which must now be a realistic 
possibility over the next two 
seasons, among the high fliers, it 
would be an accomplish mem every 
bit as worthy and improbable as 
Tommy Farr’s heavyweight title 
bout with Louis in 1937. Can he do 
it? 

In the euphoria following Avoriaz, 
he sat back to think about iL Apart 
from the matter of financial support 
and improved skis, he considers 
there are five factors on which his 
chances are dependent: 

• The luck of avoiding the kind of 
serious injury that sadly has struck 
down his younger brother Graham. 

• The continuing backup of trainer, 
doctor, team manager and video 
film operator for studying the 
training runs. 

• His own racing consistency, based 
on improved fitness and technique 
from summer training. 

• The prospect that if he could 
become established in the top 1 5 he 
could be making money, to establish 



Rebels ready to go it alone 
as league showdown looms 

C7 D„ U U Tn,.|n» 


Astonishing though it may 
seem to a Scottish football 
public grown weary of a 
protracted war of words, a 
decision on whether the nine 
dissident clubs will break 
away from the Scottish 
League is likely to be taken 
this week. 

Spcculation is rife that the 
rebels — the entire premier 
division, with the exception 
of the part-timers, Gydebank 
— will decide finally on 
Thursday that their patience 
is exhausted and that they 
can no longer go on talking. 
One straw in the wind that 
threatens to blow through 
Scottish football next season 
is that the dissidents have 
revealed they are seeking new 
offices from which to admin- 
ister the breakaway league 
they have been threatening to 
form for months. 

Another is a statement 
delivered by Campbell 
Ogilvte, the secretary of 
Rangers and the spokesman 
for the rebels, in which it was 
said that a draft of a new 
constitution and rules to be 
lodged with the Scottish 
Football Association has 
been completed. 

These developments 
emerged after a meeting in 


By Hugh Taylor 

Perth at which representa- 
tives ot the leading clubs had 
engageo in yet another round 
ot talks with the league 
president. Ian Gcllady. and 
the secretary. Jim Farry. 

It is understood thai the 
showdown may come on 
Thursday. A decision will be 
welcomed by football enthu- 
siasts heartily sick of the 
conflict which has bedevilled 
the game for the past five 
months. Although the rebels 
are understood to have made 
concessions to the league, no 
agreement on several of the 
major issues was reached at 
the talks on Sunday. 

Consequently, the dissident 
nine demanded that a special 
general meeting of the league 
be convened without delay. 
But again the league decided 
to dally. Their response was 
to bring forward their normal 
monthly meeting to Thurs- 
day. when they will decide if 
a lull meeting can be sanc- 
tioned. 

But most people believe 
the time for talking is over. 
There can be little doubt that 
if the management commit- 
tee refuse to call the meeting, 
the rebels must at last go it 
alone and change the face of 
Scottish footbalL 


If the general meeting is 
called, the rebels will put 
forward their proposals and 
hope 10 gain the necessary 
two-thirds majority among 
the smaller clubs. Should 
they win. the powerful dubs 
will remain within the league 
framework, which will then 
take on the new look sought 
by the nine. Should they lose, 
there is only one course open 
to them: to break away. 

The paramount problem is 
that of relegation and promo- 
tion. as Farry confinnod 
ruefully yesterday. “Ninety 
per cent of what the dissi- 
dents want is being given to 
them on a silver platter with 
changes in voting power and 
in the rules." he said. “But 
they demand that there be no 
promotion from the first 
division and now they ha\c 
suggested that there should 
be no relegation or promo- 
tion at the end of this season. 
Obviously, the first division 
clubs are’ not likely to accept 
the fad.” 

The forecast is that the 
league will refuse to convene 
a special meeting and that the 
dissidents will at last fulfil 
their threat to take action. 


Brady could be replaced 
at Inter by Passarella 


Who mil fall off the Italian 
merry-go-round between now 
and next season? Trevor Frau- 
ds? Graeme Souness? Liam 
Brady? There is a good while to 
go. but from March onwards 
the Italian dobs wbe have been 
wheeling and dealing tn secret 
will be able to do so openly. 

The situation is complicated 
by uncertainty over whether 
the ban on foreign players will 
be relaxed after fbe World Cop. 
The likelihood is that it will not 
be, which greatly strengthens 
the position of those foreign 
players already there. 

It is whispered that 
lnteraarionale are preparing to 
release Brady, and that he 
would then want to come home. 
But their idea of a rep la cement 
for him seems a bit odd: Daniel 
Passarella, the Argentina and 
Fiorent m a defender who will be 
33 in May. 

Brady has been seeking 
clarification from inter's 
preadenLbut Dke Francis, with 
whom be played successfully in 
Genoa for Sampdoria, he is

Italy’s low

European 
draw 

Frankfort (Renter) — Italy, 
the World Cap bidders, bare 
been rated as the equals ot 
among others, Albania and 
Turkey for the purposes of the 
1988 European championship 
draw which takes place here on 
Friday, 

The 32 nations taking part id 
the qualifying stages will be 
drawn in serai groups, four of 
five teams and three of four 
teams, with one team from each 
section going forward to the 
1988 finals, west Germany, the 
hosts, qualify automatically. 

The European Football 
Union (UEFA) have created 
five categories, or pools, of 
teams for the draw, with the 
strongest supposedly in the 
first category and the weakest 
is the fifth. UEFA based their 
assessment on how nations 
fared in qnaUfyimg for foe 1984 
European finals and for the the 
year's World Cap finals. 

Consequently Italy, who 
foiled to qualify in 1984 after 
finishing fourth in their section 
and as holders did not compete 
In foe World Cop prelimi- 
naries, have been rated in the 
fourth of foe five pools with 
Scotland, Greece, Finland, Nor- 
way, Turkey and Alban i a. 

Critics fear this could distort 
the groups in much the same 
way as happened in the draw 
for the World Cop finals in 
Mexico. 

France, the European cham- 
pions, are included among the 
seven top seeds.

Return of hooliganism 
could keep the 
door to Europe closed 


By Stuart Jones, Football Correspondent 


The Football Association is 
to hold an enquiry into the 
disturbing attack that was 
launched on Manchester 
United's team coach as it 
arrived at Anfieki on Sunday 
afternoon. After hearing evi- 
dence from both clubs and 
the police, the governing 
body may no longer feel that 
the door to Europe should be 
reopened 

Milan's daily newspaper, 
Gazzetta deflo Sport . has 
already delivered its verdict 
from mar. “Liverpool's hooli- 
gans were back in action," it 
said yesterday after hearing 
reports of the inridenL “The 
new wave of violence can 
only delay the possibility that 
UEFA will lift the ban on 
F.n giUh teams in the Europe- 
an cups." 

The timing of the trouble 
could not have been more 
apposite. Following the trage- 
dy before Liverpool's defeat 
by Juventus in Last May's 
European Cup final in Brus- 
sels, England were considered 
fortunate not to be with- 
drawn from foe 1988 Europe- 
an championships. The draw 
for that event happens to be 
taking place on Friday. 

The FA should look further 
than the brick that was 
thrown at the coach and the 
gas that was sprayed at 
United's players as well as 
several young and innocent 
bystanders. They would then 
know that, although the 


domestic season has so for 
been relatively peaceful, hoo- 
liganism still lurks danger- 
ously in the background. 

Liverpool's supporters 
were once famed tor the 
warmth of their humour and 
the generosity of their appre- 
ciation. But on Sunday the 
spirit of the audience was 
unnervingly sinister. The 
ground was a cold and 
threatening arena before, dur- 
ing and after foe game. The 
atmosphere was hostile, the 
language obscene, foe ges- 1 
hires provocative. 

Some of foe venom was 
directed at Ron Atkinson, 
United's manager, and Bryan' 
Robson, the injured and 
suspended captain, who were 
silting in the directors' box 
next to foe press area. 
MercifUIiy, the abuse was 
restricted to the verbal kind 
though it was nonetheless 
stunning in its ferocity. 

Some of it was reserved fen* 
those who had laid £5 for a 
seat in foe main stand A 
friend a United supporter, 
was given an alarmingly dose 
view of foe animosity which 
began as soon as the teams 
emerged The aggression 
turned into physical violence 
when United took tin; lead 
after 14 minutes. 

“There were four groups of 
about half a dozen men 
scattered across a Kwiitwi 
area around us,” he said 
“They were in their middle 
to late twenties, they were fit 


£ 


and athletic and they wore 
expensive clothes. They nei- 
ther looked nor dressed like 
obs and they seemed to 
iow what they were doing. 

It was like a commando raid 

“At a given signal, they 
scrambled over some 10 rows 
of seats and converged on 
one United fan in particular. 
They punched and kicked 
him systematically for a 
minute or so and then, just as 
suddenly, went back to their 
places and sat there innocent- 
ly as though nothing had 
happened There was no 
more physical stuff but foe 
atmosphere was terrifying. 

“All of them were drunk. 
They had bottles of vodka, 
which they were drinking 
openly out of glasses. That 
was particularly worrying. I 
just couldn't wait until the 
game was over and 1 could 
get out safely. The police 
came over but they didn't 
seem to be interested or to 
want to get involved” 

Although he is an avid 
United supporter, he said 
that he would never again go 
to any game outside either 
Old Traffotd or possibly 
Wembley. The views of his 
girlfriend, who accompanied 
him, were similarly vehe- 
ment. She is from New 
Zealand and she was attend- 
ing her second match. During 
the first, three years ago, she 
was mugged 


High price of ignoring the Don 


i \ 
* i 


Leeds United are still 
searching for a formula after 
12 years of trying to 
recreate the success they en- 
joyed under Don Revie. In 
this two-part analysis, PETER 
BALL looks at life- and 
strife— at EllandRoad after 
that remarkable era. 

In the heady days of the late 
Sixties and early Seventies, 
when Don Revie's team were 
carrying all before them, the 
Leeds United directors em- 
barked on an ambitious ground 
rebuilding programme, turning 
Elland Road into one of the 
finest arenas in the country. A 
ground for heroes to play on. 

In foe dressing room foe 
heroes, those cynical observers 
of directors’ doings, viewed the 
plans with a quizzical eye. The 
jokiqg comment from that 
quarter went “We're a great 
.team playing in a second-rate 
ground. By the time it's 
finished we'll be gone, and 
fob'll have a great ground and 
no team." 

A little over a decade later, 
that prophesy has come true. A 
week ago Billy Bremner, the 
dub's seventh manager in the 
12 years since Revie’s depar- 
ture and the third of tire great 
team to be given the task of 
restoring the club's glories, 
survived questioning at the 
dub’s annual genera) meeting 
relatively unscathed. But 
Saturday's defeat at Grimsby 
leaves relegation to the third 
division for the first time in foe 
dub's history a real possibility, 
as Bremner concedes. 

There is. however, one factor 
not forseen by the dressing 
room soothsayers: the club no 
longer own their magnificent 
stadium. It was sold to the 
local council last September for 
£2.5 million to dear the debts 
accumulated during the club's 
decline. Since his appointment 
in October Bremner has not 
succeeded in slopping the roL 
The decline, however, had set 
in much earlier, offering a sorry 
tale of mismanagement at 
board level since Revie's exit 
in 1974 to become the manager 
of England. 

There is a football adage. 
“Success goes in cycles”, a 
fatalistic assertion offering suc- 
cour to the currently unsuccess- 
ful that it is not their fhult: but 
the enduring success of Liver- 
pool proves otherwise. The 
year 1974 marked the start of a 
period in English football 
when, with gates dedining 
' while inflation hit salaries and 



Giles (left), Revie's recommendation, and Clough, the 
directors' choice 


transfer fees, foe opportunity 
was offered to tire successful 
big dubs to establish a perma- 
nent hegemony over the game; 
Liverpool took it Leeds re- 
jected it 

In 1974. when they won the 
League for a second time, 
playing with a freedom that 
had eluded them earlier, Leeds 
were if anything ahead of their 
then great rivals from 
Meiseyside. Revie. the archi- 
tect of their progress after 
inheriting a poor second di- 
vision team in 1962, had over 
the 12 years turned them into 
one of foe most powerful dubs 
in Europe universally feared 
and respected, if not loved. 

Revie’s domination of the 
dub had not, however, en- 
deared him to all of the 
directors, who were less than 
happy to find that the team 
coach left the ground when the 
players were ready, not when 
they were. On one famous 
occasion two directors were 
stranded at Tottenham while 
foe coach sped north. 

When the time came for 
Revie to move on, those slights 
were remembered and they 
ignored perhaps the most 
important decision of his 
career at the dub: his advice on 
a successor. Recognizing the 
value of continuity, which had 
served Liverpool so well, Revie 
recommended John Giles, a 
player steeped in the dub's 
values. 

The directors instead turned 
to Brian Clough- It was a bold 
but monumentally insensitive 
decision. 

It was a disaster. His 
supporters maintained that he 
had been defeated by a players’ 
mafia unwilling to accept him. 
His own insensitivity did not 
help, bis statement that “I 
never want to hear that man’s 


name mentioned around here” 
when a tea lady referred to the 
departed Revie being widely 
quoted as an example. 

A more teHing one to the 
players was his comment to 
Eddie Gray, whose bravery in 
the face of a series of knee 
injuries bad confirmed his 
position as the most popular 
Leeds player inside and outside 
Bland Road. Clough told him: 
“If you were a horse, they’d 
have had you shot long ago.” It 
might have been meant as a 
joke, but tt was received with 
outrage. 

Giles, hardly a disinterested 
observer but nevertheless a 
perceptive one, felt that 
Clough's haste to change the 
team be thought was going 
over the hill baa been the cause 
of his downfall. “We were a 
very good team, with many 
great players, and there was a 
lot of good football left in us,” 
Giles said. Clough thought 
otherwise and blew through 
Elland Road like a whirlwind, 
bringing in John McGovern, 
John O’Hare and Duncan 
McKenzie to build the “new” 
Leeds. 

He was not given the chance. 
Leeds briefly sank to nine- 
teenth position and the Leeds 
directors compounded their 
original error by not seeing it 
through. After 44 days Cough 
was sacked, with a large pay-off 
as compensation. 

In his place came quiet, pipe- 
smoking Jimmy Armfield. 
Arm field has admitted pri- 
vately to friends that his new 
players “didn't think I could 
manage a chip shop”, and the 
comment “the manager's in- 
decision is Anal” became al- 
most a passport into foe Elland 
Road dressing room. But after 
the tumult his soothing pres- 
ence provided an atmosphere 


of calm and the League 
position improved while the 
team went mi to reach the 
European Cup final that sea- 
son. 

It was to be their last 
challenge for a major honour. 
Bayern Munich beat them 2-0 
in a game that ended with a 
riot by the Leeds supporters, 
the most notorious in a series 
of outbreaks which had given 
the dub an unenviable prob- 
lem. The team began to break 
up, Giles leading the exodus by 
moving to West Bromwich as 
player-manager to gain promo- 
tion in his first season. 
Armfiekl kept the dub steady 
but be was unable to return 
them , to the top of the first 
division, and in 1978. after 
four years, he was sacked . 

Once again the directors 
made a bold foray, appointing 
the late Jock Stein, a manager 
of Revie’s stature but whose 
great days as a dub manager 1 
were behind him. It proved 
another farcical episode, Stein 
never settling in Yorkshire. He 
had lasted one day longer than 
Clough and had still not signed 
his contract when he was 
offered and accepted the po- 
sition as Scotland manager. 

After Stein came Jimmy 
Adamson, who survived 23 
months before leaving in more 
controversial circumstances 
when the board instructed him 
to replace his coach and he 
refused. Like Arm field, 
Adamson had kept the club in 
a respectable mid-table po- 
sition. That did not match 
expectations, and the directors 
turned to Allan Clarice, who 
had been a member of the great 
team and had gained promo- 
tion for Barnsley in his first 
managerial post, to bring back 
success. 

Abrasive as a player, Clarke 
was full of confidence, 
announcing that he intended to 
be ranked with Bob Paisley and 
promising that be would win 
the European Cup, The club's 
resources, however, had been 
dissipated and the flamboyant 
signing of Peter Barnes, far 
from Being the first step in the 


■31 


creation or a new team, was a 
last self-destructive flint 
Instead of winning the Euro- 
pean Cup, Clarke took the 
financially embarrassed club 
into the second division. From 
those who had suffered at their 
hands during their days of 
success, there was little sym- 
pathy for their plighL

England 
need a 
real team 
policy 

From AthdeStilL Bonn 

The Arena festival which 
ended in Bonn on Sunday 
confirmed in practice what 
world r anking s have indicated 
over foe past two yeans, namely 
that Europe has. maintained its 
position as the powerhouse of 
world swimming. 

World best times were estab- 
lished over nine distances 
during the three days, tout even 
more significant was _ the 
considerable depth of quality in 
most of foe events, not 
withstanding the feet that the 
Soviet Union and East Ger- 
many. traditionally two of the 
strongest countries in the 
world, had both sent only small 
teams. 

Nevertheless, in the 
constellation of champions 
from 32 nations, the latter two 
countries provided perhaps the 
two brightest stars of the 
meeting in Igor Poliansky and 
Silke Hoemer. They both woo 
three gold . medals. Miss 
Hoerner in three work! best 
times over the SO, 100 and 
200m breaststroke, and over 
the same three distances only 
the 100m backstroke record 
eluded the stylish student from 
Novosibirsk. 

We had been prepared for 
exploits from Poliansky after 
his two gold medal swims at 
the European championships 
last year and his world record 
over the longer distance, but 
Miss Hoemer surprised every- 
one with her superiority over 
all three distances, winning foe 
50m (31.24 sec) by the huge 
margin — considering the 
shortness of the event — of I.Ol 
sec, and. later in "the session, 
the 200m (2 min 25.71 sec) by 
nearly 3 sec. 

Poliansky did not have as 
much in hand in winning his 
titles, but he had the motivat- 
ing presence of Rick Carey, the 
reigning double Olympic cham- 
pion. 

Both his world best times 
came on Sunday, the 50m in 
25.70 sec with Carey only 
fourth in 26.37, and later with 
an even more impressive 
performance in foe 200m 
event, where he spread eagled 
the field 

Siephane Caron, a French- 
man who also holds a British 
passport through his Scottish 
mother, again confirmed him- 
self as perhaps the only sprinter 
in the world who looks capable 
of challenging Matt Bkmdi. 

Although none of foe above 
swimmers came from the host 
country, it must be said that 
the over-riding impression of 
foe meeting was the tremen- 
dous improvement and overall 
superiority in depth of foe 
West Gomans. They domi- 
nated the mens event’s, taking 
seven gold, 1 2 silver and 10 
bronze medals. 

The 22 British swimmers 
competing here, 10 English and 
12 Scots, were outclassed and 
the lack of success and. more 
importantly, policy of the 
English learn demands instant 
investigation. 

Only three British swimmers 
reached finals and not a single 
medal was won. Nevertheless, 
ihere were promising swims 
from Duncan Rolley, foe 
Gloucester boy on a sports 
scholarship at Swansea Univer- 
sity. who improved Gary 
Binfrekl's English record for the 
200m individual ' medley by 
0.07 sec with a time of 2 min 
05.28 sec, and Gary Watson, 
foe young Scot, who improved 
Ian Campbell's recent record ( I 
min 03.50 sec) for the 100m 
breast-stroke to 1 min 03.14 
sec. Earlier the British swim- 
mers had set a further two 
British and one Scottish record.

Munro- Wilson’s hand 
of hunter-chase aces 


Early season hunter chases, 
where ex-handicappers run 
for the first time, are difficult 
to assess as some retain their 
form well, particulariy if 
remaining in foe same profes- 
sional yard - as did Venture 
To Cognac two seasons ago. 
More often than not. howev- 
er. the older horses sold into 
private hands do not come 
within a stone of previous 
peiformahoef 

Bearing this in mind, here 
is a look at some of the 
leading candidates for this 
season's hunter chases. 

Oliver Sherwood, who rode 
Venture To Cognac to suc- 
cess in foe >984 Christies 
Foxhunter Challenge Cup at 
foe Cheltenham Festival, was 
hoping to saddle Beamwam 
in this year's race but he has 
been frustrated by foe weath- 
er and will not find two 
qualifying races in time. His 
new owner, David Naylor- 
Leyland, is competent in 
pomt-to-points with two wins 
to his credit in each of the 
past two seasons, but is 
relatively inexperienced over 
the sliffer jumps ami this 
horse cannot be described as 
an armchair ride. Beamwam 
won eight races from 17 
starts in 83/84 for Harry Bell 
and still has age on his side. 

Venture To returns 

alter a season's ab$ence,and if 
all goes well in his prepara- 
tory races may take his 
chance again at Cheltenham 
in March. He proved himself 
head and shoulders above his 
rivals two years ago, but aged 
13 foe task will be much 
more difficult, if he is not up 
to top- class events there will 
still be plenty of minor ones 
at his mercy. He is likely to 
be ridden this year by Paul 
Webber. 

Fred Winter, his former 
trainer has Mnsso and Young 
Lover qualified for hunter- 
chasing. At 10 and eight 
years, respectively, both are 
seasoned campaigners and 
have been with him for some 
while. Musso is ideally suited 
by 3 ’A miles, while Young 
Lover will be at his best in 
foe shorter-distance races. 



Venture To Cognac, who will be reteraing alter a season's 
absence to try to win the Christies Foxhunter Cnp at Chel- 
tenham for a second time 


Herr Capitan ripe 
to take command 


Herr Capitan is one who 
has left a professional’s yard, 
in this case Jim Old's, and is 
now with Eddie Wbettam. 
He won five of his last six 
races in foe 82/83 season, but 
has been less successful since. 
At Ludlow last Wednesday 
he was up with the pace for 
two miles but found nothing 
extra in the closing stages. He 
cannot be written off after 
one performance and it is 
quite on the cards that he will 
win a race or two _ when 
stamina is at a premium. 

Ahead of him at Ludlow 
was Prince Rowan, one of 
three new horses with 
Broderick Munro- Wilson. He 
was in the lead until three 
fences from home but weak- 
ened and Munro-Wilson’s 21b 
overweight cost him third 
place prize money by a short 
head. He won foe Tommy 
Whittle Chase at Hay dock for 
Monica Dickinson and ran 
well when beaten into fourth 
place 12 lengths behind Door 
Latch at Cheltenham a year 
ago last December. 

With Prince Rowan from 
Mrs Dickinson’s yard came 


his stablemate, W Six Times, 
foe winner of five handicaps 
in a row in 82/83 and 
another five during foe fol- 
lowing season. Since then he 
has been disappointing, but 
his outings in the hunting 
field should have r&sawak- 
ened his interest At his best 
he would beat most hunter 
chasers in races of less than 
three miles. 

The other Munro- Wilson 
acquisition is Poyntz Pass, 
who did most of his early 
racing in Ireland, winning 
handicap chases for 
MickOToole over distances 
between two and three miles. 
More recently he has been on 
the Northern circuit but with 
only limited success. Acting 
on any going, he is likely to 
be most effective at 2 'hi n. 

The return of Honourable 
Man in the twilight of his 
career is more than welcome 
for the pleasures he gave 
when hunter chasing in the 
early 80s. At that time, 
undoubtedly the top, northern 
horse, he never achieved the 
principle accolade at Chelten- 
ham, but nos runner up on 
two occasions, once to 
Grittar and by a head to The 
Drunken Duck foe following 
year. For the last two seasons 
he has been running with 
credit in handicaps and, 
having lost none of his 
enthusiasm, he is still a horse 
to be reckoned with. 

-The horse who made foe 
transition most successfully 
last year was Royal Judge- 
ment. After fine performances 
for Josh Gifford in 82/83, be 
ran nine times foe following 
season without a win and was 
beginning to give foe impres- 
sion of losing interest Lady 
Rootes decided to have him 
hunted with the East Sussex 
and Romney Marsh from 
Jean CampbeJTs Pluckley sta- 
bles. Since then he has never, 
looked back. He.has_won five 


times from seven outings 
being beaten by only one 
horse. Further. Thought, both 
times at Sandown and over 2 
Vi miles, a distance perhaps 
short of his best. The Hine 
Cognac at Wincanton is again 
on foe agenda but, weather 
permitting, he will be seen in 
action at Windsor on Satur- 
day. 

Farther Thought is “bigger, 
stronger and more settled” 
than be was in 1985 accord- 
ing to Anne Underwood. As 
Mrs Vanden Bergh's 1 1-year 
old won all his races except 
the main one last year - he 
uncharacteristically un- 
shipped Tim Thomson Jones 
at the fifth fence at Chelten- 
ham - it would seem that it 
will take a horse out of the 
ordinary to beat him. His 
campaign is planned to start 
at Sandown on Friday, but 
the main aim is to assist 
those punters who lost for- 
tunes on him in the 
Foxhunters in 1984 and 85 to 
reco ver some of their money. 

Gty Boy aims for 
Aintree repeat 

From the same stable. City 
Boy. easy winner of last 
week’s Ludlow race, has had 
the soft palate operation and 
is better than ever. His main 
aim is the Aintree 
Foxhunters which he won 
Iasi year. 

The big disappointment 
this season is that Miss 
Crorina will be absent, hav- 
ing not recovered from the 
jarred leg received when 
beaten, for foe first time in 
seven races, in the Horse and 
Hound Cup on foe final day 
of last season. Her record was 
such that she started foe 
shortest price favourite in the 
history of the race at 7 to 4

Defendants caged during 

museum 
charges 

By George Hill 

Financial incentives have 
been announced to encourage 
national museums and galler- 
ies io charge entry fees. 

Mr Richard Luce. Minister 
for the Arts, announced 
>csierda> that from April the 
Government would no longer 
, deduct expected receipts from 
annual grams and would 
allow museums to carry up to 
10 per cent of unspent money 
from one financial year to the 
next. 

"The purpose of these 
proposals is not to replace 
public funding by private 
funding, but to provide an 
opportunity for a larger 
growl h in 'the total funding 
available." Mr Luce said in a 
written Commons reply. 

He gave a guarantee that 
once introduced, the new 
system would be left un- 
changed for at least three 
years and that no change 
would be made afterwards 
without "adequate” advance 
notice. 

The new system will effec- 
tively make the exceptional 
treatment accorded to the 
National Maritime Museum 
when it introduced charges in 
1984. available to all public 
museums and galleries. 

The Victoria and Albert 
Museum imposed a "volun- 
tary charge” of £2 last vear 
and attendances fell bv" al- 
most 50 per cent in the" first 
three months of operation. 

Meanwhile, the Arts Coun- 
cil has stepped in with an 
eleventh hour initiative 
which could save London's 
threatened Sadler's Wells 
Theatre. 

The theatre has until Fri- 
day to find £267.000. needed 
in the coming year, or close 
down. 

The crisis arose when the, 

Arts Council refused to' 
directly replace grants previ- 
ously given by the doomed 
Greater London Council. 

Now- Arts Council chair- 
man Sir William Recs-Moga 
has called a meeting for 
Friday, with the three compa- 
nies that regularly use the: 
theatre, to suggest "the possi-J 
hi liiy that extra money bej 
given to them and in retumj 
that they pay higher rents oni 
the theatre.

Freezing fog takes toll of 
much-too -close drivers 


By Alan Hamilton 


ser- 


Fonr people died and an- 
other 2] wane taken to 
hospital when more than 200 
vehicles crashed in freezing 
fog in Yorkshire yesterday. 

Police and firemen reported 
that yet again motorists were 
driving too fast and too dose 
in visibility of only 80 yards. 

One of the dead was a lorry 
driver whose vehicle ploughed 
into the back of 40 others 
piled up on the AI at 
Carrington, West Yorkshire. 
The other three, a wo man and 
two children, died when their 
car was crushed in a collision 
with an articulated lorry on 
the A64 York to Mahon 
road. 

More than 100 vehicles 
were involved in one accident 
on the MI8, and rescue 
services had to be summoned 
from West Yorkshire. South 
Yorkshire and Humberside. 

It was followed rapidly by 
two farther multiple crashes 
on the AI near Doncaster, 


stretching local rescue 
vices to the limit. 

The injured were taken to 
hospitals in Pontefract, 
Barnsley and Doncaster, bat 
most were allowed home after 
treatment 

Both Britain and continen- 
tal Europe continued to expe- 
rience unusually low 
temperatures in the teeth of 
icy Siberian winds. Police 
found a lorry driver suffering 
from hypothermia on the M3 
near Hook, Hampshire, yes- 
terday morning. He had been 
waiting for three hoars in a 
broken-down vehicle, but lat- 
er recovered. 

Some of the coldest tem- 
peratures recorded in En- 
gland have been in ifr-wf , 
where on Sunday night the 
thermometer at RAF 
Mansion registered -I3°C 
Large areas of Italy have 
been blanketed by uncharac- 
teristic snow, which yesterday 
took Rome's famoasly undis- 
ciplined traffic to new depths 
of chaos. Roman drivers, 


caught without snow <-*»»»<?, 
wa re quite enable to cope 
with the slippery slopes of the 
city's seven biffo , and most 
main roads were Mocked. 

It was Rome's first snow of 
the season. Many other parts 
of the country, mrlnriing Hif 
Adriatic resorts of Rimini and 
Cattolica and the nwnneomc 
of Sardinia, were covered. 
Exceptionally low tempera- 
tures were recorded in north 
Italy, including -33 °C at the 
Alpine resort of Madeshno, 
north of MQan. 

In Venice yesterday the 
temperature fell to -3°C, and 
the local weather bureau 
predicted a high tide 
threatened to flood St Mark's 
Square. 

Ferries from Naples to 
Capn and Ischia were can- 
celled because of rough
