BP share sale 


water U-turn 

By Philip Webster, Chief Political Correspondent 

MtaS!KK?a£“ . Ufl n W lt MC Norman most likely the £1 billion

naing m Bnush Petroleum Government’s commitment The Government has al- 

fill the gap left in its finances 
after the shelving of water 
privatization, by speeding up 
ibe sale of its remaining 
holding in British Petroleum 
and thus sticking to its objec- 
tive of cutting taxes before the 
next general election. 

All 'pr .pan of the 31.7 per- 
cent it still owns in BP — 
valued at nearly £3 billion - 
could be sold at any time and 
before the next election if 
necessary. Government 
sources said yesterday. 

At least some of the money 
that Mr Nigel Lawson, the 
Chancellor, hoped to have to 
bring the standard rate of tax 
down towards 25p in the 
pound before the election will 
not now be available. 

■ But in the wake of their 
efimbdown over the sale of the 
JO water -authorities in En- 
gland and. Wales, ministers 
were voicing total confidence 
yesterday in their ability to 
meet their target of £4.75 bil- 
. lion from the sale of assets in 
each of the next three years. 

They denied that their plans 
for pre-election tax cuts had 
been damaged. 

It was said that a combina- 
tion of the proceeds from the 
sale of British Airways, the 
British Airports Authority, 
Rolls Royce and the remain- 
ing holdings in BP and British 
Telecom were more than suffi- 
cient to meet the targets. 

However, the Treasury con- 
firmed that the remaining 49 
per cent holding in BT — cur- 
rent market value £7 billion — 
cannot be sold until April 
1988, under die original sale 
prospectus. -

President Reagan and Presi- 
dent ■ Francois Mitterrand, 
who stood side by side at the 
Statue of Liberty centennial 
celebrations, met over lunch 
yesterday to discuss the pros- 
pects for East-West relations 
in. advance of the French 
leader's visit to Moscow on 

Mr Reagan impressed on M 
Mitterrand his eagerness to 
achieve progress at the Gene- 
va arms talks and his commit- 
ment to a summit meeting this 
vear with Mr Gorbachov, the 
Soviet leader. 

He clearly hopes M Mit- 
terrand. during his three-day 
Moscow visit, will be able to 
prod the Soviet leader in to 
selling a firm date for the 

[n recent weeks the GS and 
Soviet leaders have written to 
each other about their pro- 
posed second meeting, with 
Mr Gorbachov saying the 
Soviet Union is ready for 
preparatory talks between the 
couniries’ foreign ministers. 

After his recent conciliatory 
speech at Glassboro, Mr Rea- 
gan said in an interview on 

Thursday that new Soviet 
arms control proposals ■‘make 
me optimistic that we're not 
only going to have a summit, 
but we’re going to have a 
summit where we can reach 
agreement on some of the 
goals we share”. He called Mr 
Gorbachov's recent letter 
“quite a packet — and 

Meanwhile M Mitterrand, 

. with whom the US has re- 
stored cordial relations after 
the public dispute over the US 
raid on Libya, said here that 
Mr Gorbachov was the first 
“modern man” to lead the 
Soviet Union: a man with 
whom it was possible to 
negotiate an arms agreement. 

At a New York luncheon on 
Thursday he sketched a warm 
portrait of the Soviet leader, 
whom he said he knew better 
than his Western counter- 
parts. He had had 12 hours of 
meetings with Mr Goibachov 
during the Soviet leader's visit 
to Paris last October. The 
French visit to Moscow is a 
return visit.

The Government mounted 
a concerted exercise to damp- 
en election speculation yester- 
day after the sudden shift of 
policy on water, seen as a 
further sign of its unwilling- 
ness to lake on unpopular 
measures before the next poll. : 

Mr John Biffen, the Com- 
mons leader, suggested in a 
BBC Radio interview that the 
Queen's Speech for the next 
session of Parliament in the 
autumn would contain as 
many as 30 Bills. He indicated 
that there would be a measure 
on banking, which will be 
aimed at tightening up bank- 
ing supervision in the wake of 
the Johnson Matthey case. 

He denied that the post- 
ponement of the water Bill, 
following that of the British 
Airways and Royal Ordnance 
factory flotations, meant a 
lack of enthusiasm for further

He surprised his party by 
going on an impromptu walk-

street during a visit to launch

There were shouts of “Good 
Old Charles” as he pushed 
aside a crash barrier and 
walked into the saloon bar of 
the public house at the invita- 
tion of Mr Raymond Joiner, 
the landlord. 

The Prince glanced np at the 
painted sign, showing his fam- 
ily home, and said: w That*s

Mr Joiner, who runs the pub 
with his wife, Lyn, said: 
"Prince Charles asked for a

Mr Brown said afterwards: 
"I know Prince Charles can

would not do them today.' 1 

Mr Chris Ingram, who is 
noemployed, also spoke to the 
Prince and said: "I think a lot 
of the Queen Mother and I 
asked him how she was.” 

The Prince also looked in on 
the boutique ran by Mr Stan- 
ford Brown and his wife. Mr 
Brown, a West Indian, said: “I

it is important that he should i

to help to develop business

Mr John Barstow, a profes-

Music, London, expressed de- 
light yesterday on learning 
that Barry Douglas, one of his 
former students, bad won the 
gold medal in the main piano 
section of the International 
Tchaikovsky Mask Competi- 
tion in Moscow on Thursday. 

Mr Douglas, aged 26, ex- 
celled over more than 100 
soloists to become the first 
British painist to win the 
prestigious award outright 
since the competition began in 
1958. ' ■ ' v-; - -/

-Moscow .reported that -'his 
virtuoso jkrfbrmacces of con- 
certos by Tchaikovsky and 
Brahms had evoked rapturous 
applause. The competition ev- 

in the worid. 

Mr Barstow attributed his 
student’s success to an engag- 
ing personality, which could 
not be underestimated at this 
level of competition, a remark- 
able ability to concentrate and 
a natural facility for music. 

“Bany has a touch of the 
Irish chium. I have no doubt 
this played a part in his warm 
reception in Moscow,” he said. 

“He was a very advanced 
player with a most distin- 
guished style when he arrived 
at the college. If be carries on 
at the rate he has done, there is 
every reason to suppose be 
may become the outstanding 
pianist of his generation.” 

Mr Barstow said that Mr 
Douglas had effectively refut- 
ed* entidsm of teaching facili- 
ties and standards in Britain. 

: “One ^continually . hears 
complaintsthatweyare lagging 
behind the east -.Europeans,- -

“Barry is a British pianist 
who has studied exclusively in

Japan dominates the 
desalination market 

By Bill Johnstone, Technology Correspondent 
Japan now supplies half of piped into a specially designed 

the world's high volume desa- 
lination plants. Countries with 
water shortage problems are 
becoming increasingly depen- 
dent on the results of research 
being conducted by Japanese 
" chemists and engineers. 

More titan IS milli on cubic 
i - -metres of desalinated water is 
1 produced each day from the 
. Japanese plants around the

i- separated from ordinary sea 
water — more than 97 per cent 
, tbe water on earth. 

The driving force behind the

The second-and third princi-

aroond a technique called Os-

the flow of the sea water 
through a senupermeable 
membrane takes place. Tbe 
membrane permits only the 
solvent (fresh water) but not 
the substances dissolved (com- 
mon salt) to pass. 

Tbe fourth technique being 
developed and refined is based 
on eUctrodialysis methods. In 
this case the salt water is fed 
into a container with two elect- 
rodes of different polarity at 
each aid, broken into sections

few secrets from the general 
public, the Duke of Kent, 
Grand Master of the United 
Grand Lodge of England, said 
yesterday at the opening of a 
permanent exhibition on the 
history and work of the craft. 

He said that the exhibition, 
in the Freemason's Hall, 
Great Queen Street, Holbom, 
central London, would help 
dispel some of the persistent 
myths of “nameless dark 
practices’*, strange regalia and 
undue secrecy which surround 
the order. 

Such rumours had been 
fuelled in recent years by the 
publication of a number of 
scurrilous books on the sub- 
ject. Tbe freemasons' altitude 
that such allegations were best 
ignored had been “perhaps a 
misguided policy”, he said. 

The exhibition and the new 
willingness to speak, albeit to 
a limited extent, is largely the 
result of allegations by the 
writer Stephen Knight in a 
book published in 1983 which 
claimed that freemasonry had 
undue influence among the 
police and judiciary and that 
some sections of its more

Mr Frederick Koch, . the Westminster City Council, 

American philanthropist, yes- 
terday criticized British -plan- 
ning laws which forced him to 
abandon plans to bouse bis 

against freemasonry. The Ro~ £30 million ait collection at St 
man Cathohc Church, after John’s Lodge in Regents Park, 

some years of ambivalence, 
has re-instituted its prohibi- 
tion on Catholics becoming 

central London. 

Mr Jeremy Pemberton, 
president of the Grand 

Lodge's board of general pur- 
poses, said that the policy of 
refusing to respond to even 
simple enquiries caused “no 
positive harm until the early 
1 980s when it became increas- 
ingly clear that ‘no comment’ 
by us implied to the outside 
world an acceptance of the 
truth of allegations, however 
damaging and untrue”. 

That policy began to change 
under the leadership of the 
Duke of Kent, he said. 

The exhibition lays empha- 
sis upon the charitable work of 
freemasonry and on members 
of the royal family who have 
been masons, a tradition 
which ends only with Prince 
Charles, who is said to have 
declined to join. 

After negotiations testing 
more than two years Mr Koch 
has given up his scheme to 
lease the empty grade 1 listed 
baBding, designed by Sir 
Charles Bany, and spend £4 
million on attentions to open 
his collection to the public. 

“Although I have always 
sought a home for my collec- 
tion in London I am no longer 
prepared to continue with the 
time consuming effort neces- 
sary to achieve that aim at St 
John's Lodge. Planning proce- 
dures seem to grind slow and

with her alma mater when 
she arrived at Kesteven

It was Mrs Margaret

“It was he who tanght 

me the hard lesson, never

always to decide for my-

The timing and tactics of 
putting it to Parliament bad 
not yet been derided but be 
hoped the measure would be 
in place “reasonably soon". 

One option being consid-

part of the Public Order Bill.

trespassers, ramblers or bird 

Mr Hurd was on' a day-long 
visit to Bristol, meeting local 
Conservatives and Mr Ronald 
Broome, Chief Constable of 
Avon and Somerset. He was 
also meeting police recruits 
and visiting the Regional

London police more special-

police officers often found 
themselves in the front line, 
coping with the effects of the 
wider problems of inner cities. 

“The police service de-

considered effort they have 
put into seeking to build a 
partnership against crime with 
people in the community."

police forces were working 
hard to encourage more young 
blacks and Asians to join the 
police. In the autumn he 
would be calling these forces

French youths, aged 19. . - 
He is alleged to have made 
, the offer when he visited the 
London hpmes of the girls. ' 
The Foreign Office -con-

British diplomat would be

the allegations. A spokesman

Penang court told drug 
pair’s death 

warrants already signed 

FromM. G. G. PHlai, Koala Lumpur 

Time is numing out for pie 
two! condemned Australian 
drug-traffickers, Brian Geof- 
frey Chambers and Kevin 
John Barlow, who was bom in 
Britain. - 

In an unexpected develop- 
ment yesterday. Tan Sri Abu 
Talib Osman, the Malaysian 
Attorney-General, told a 
stunned High Court sitting in 
Penang that the order to 
execute the pair had been 
issued and the courts had no 
more say in the matter. 

Informed sources here said 
last night, that the two men 
could be hanged as early as 
Monday morning. 

Blit prison officials at Pudu 
jail, where they are being held 
on the death row, refused to 
confirm this, and would only 
say that they had not been 
hanged yet. 

Mrs Barbara Barlow, Kevin 
Barlow’s mother, told The 
Times last night that she was 
disappointed and very upset 
by the news. There was no 
comment from Mrs Sue 
Chambers, the mother of 
Geoffrey Chambers. 

Barlow and Chambers were 
arrested for drug-trafficking in 
1983, with 179 grammes (6.3 
oz) of heroin found on them, 
and were sentenced to death in 
July, - 1985. The Supreme 
Court confirmed their death 
sentences in December. The 
Pardons Board rejected their 
clemency petitions two weeks 

Plea to King 

Lord Gifford, QG> sponsor of 
the National Council for the 
Welfare of Prisoners Abroad, 
sent a telegram to the King of 
Malaysia yesterday saying: 
“In the name of humanity and 
justice I urge yon to stay 
execution of Barlow and 
Chambers pending current ju- 
dicial proceedings.” 

The Penang hearing, to stay 
the executions pending further 
legal moves, had been put off 

legal moves, had been put on 
until yesterday after Mr Shaari 
Yusof, the Penang state legal 

adviser, had assured the court 
last week that the warrant of 
execution would not be issued . 

Yesterday, Tan Fri Abu 
Talib said Mr Shaari had no 
authority to say what he did. 

Lawyers for Barlow and 
Chambers noticed something 
was not right when the judge 
assigned to the case, Mr 
Justice Edgar Joseph, stayed 
in his chambers, and Mr 
Justice Peb Swee Chin came 
from lpoh, 150 miles to the 
south, to preside. He has now 
postponed the hearing until 
July 14, but lawyers believe 
the case is becoming rather 

Mr Subash Chandran, ' 
counsel for Chambers, said 
yesterday: “It is scandalous to 
execute the two men when 
proceedings are under way. 

We are asking the Governor to 
stop the executions in the 
name of humanity". 

But Tan Sri Abu Talib said: 
“The court has decided it has 
no jurisdiction over a stay of 
execution. It is not that the 
Pardons Board has not consid- 
ered all aspects of the case as 
alleged by the lawyers. We 
have considered everything.” 

The last avenue open to the 
two men is an appeal to Tun 
Awang Hassan. the Governor 
of Penang. This morning, their 
lawayers will call at his resi- 
dence, hoping they would be 
received and their request for 
a stay of execution allowed. 

"It is their last hope,” one 
lawyer said, “but they are 
clutching at straws.” 

If Barlow and Chambers are 
executed, they will be the first 

whites to be banged in Malay- 
sia since the Second World 

the Second Wt 
War. In the intervening years, 
35 men and one woman have 
been sent to the gallows for 
drug offences under 
Malaysia’s tough anti-drug

sentenced to death but are 
awaiting the outcome of their

aged 54. was sentenced to

ed with him was acquitted for

Hu criticizes Mao and 
praises party debate 

From A Correspondent, Peking 

In a speech that appeared on 
the front pages of China’s 
most influential newspapers 
this week, the Communist 
Party secretary, Mr Hu 
Yaobang. criticized Mao Tse- 
tung's “reluctance to accept 
views differing from his own” 
and reiterated Mr Deng 
Xiaoping's view that dissent is 

Mr Hu said that although 
the 1930s marked “the peak of 
Mao's theoretical work to 
develop Marxism”, by the 
1950s he had become too rigid 
in his thinking. 

Mr Hu also criticized “some 
comrades in the party, espe- 
cially young comrades”, who 
“feared contradictions and 

were not forthright enough in 
putting forward their views”. 

The party had learned from 
the past mistake of automati- 
cally branding those with dif- 
fering views as promoting 
“right deviations” or “follow- 
ing a capitalist road". 

Those who did not favour 
the principles and policies 
adopted by the Central Com- 
mittee but who strived to 
abide by them were “free to 
hold their reservations”. 

But Mr Hu warned cadres 
who resisted party policies or 
who '“tried to promote ideas 
and policies antagonistic to 
those of. the:; Central 
Committee” that they would 
face disciplinary action.

Seven die in Chilean general strike 

From Lake Sagans, Santiago 

Seven people are dead, 50 
have bullet wounds and at 
least 600 are under arrest as a 
result of the two-day general 
strike in Chile this week. 

Unequal confrontations be- 
tween stone-throwing youths . 
and combat troops went on Ute 
into the night on Thursday, 
the last day of the strike, 
accompanied by frequent 
bomb blasts and volleys of 
machine-gun fire. 

Details of the unrest became 
extremely difficult to obtain on 
Wednesday after Che Govern- 
ment banned the news broad- 
casts of four popular Santiago 
radio stations. 

The archbishopric of Santi- 

ago, which is responsible for 
two of the radio stations, 
condemned the military Gov- 
ernment’s action and called on 
the aimed forces, “whose mis- 
sion should be to defend 
citizens' rights, to abstain 
from actions which will in- 
crease the spiral of violence in 
the country”. 

The Government has filed, 
charges against a journalist of 
the opposition magazine 
Coace for a recent report on 
tiie illegal revolutionary left 

The director, columnists 
and jonrnalists of AnStisis 
magazine also face serious 
charges for allegedly main- 

taining “a constant criminal 
lin e of conduct in both editori- 

als and opinion pieces . 

In the past two days troops 
and police have ' virtually in- 
vaded many of tfrepoOr areas 
surrounding Santiago. At least 
four people have, died in 
shooting incidents. 

By Thursday evening, the 
22-member directorate of the 
National Assembly of CivQ 
Society, which called the 
strike, had been replaced by a 
10-member council headed by 
the president of the teachers' 
confederation, Sefior Osvaldo 
Verdugo. The original direc- 
torate has been charged with 
violating security laws.

Mexico’s ruling party faces

Lord Barber says Mandela would 
have sought to end violence 


If the negotiating concept dev 
vised by the Eminent Persons 
Group had been implemented 
and Nelson Mandela released, 
his would have been a powerful 
voice for calm throughout South 
Africa, Lord Barber, a member 
of the EPG. said during a debate 
in the House of Lords. 

Lady Young, Minister of State 
for Foreign and Commonwealth 
Affairs, said when she opened 
the. debate that the British 
Government saw violence in 
South Africa as a symptom, not 
a cause, of that country’s deep 
malaise and believed ' Pretoria 
wassadly mistaken if its thought 
it could deal wilh.the problems 
by force. But' gloomy as the 
outlook is (she said) it would be 
wrong to paint a picture devoid 
of any light or shade. 

The situation in South Africa 
had evolved over the past two 

President Botha had admitted 
that apartheid was outmoded. 

Reforms had been introduced 
diat would have been unthink- 
able even a few years ago. 

However, the pace of reform 
was painfully slow, with too 

little being done too late and too 

Lord Cledwyn of Penrhos, lead- 
er of the Opposition peers, said 
all parties in the House were 
fundamentally opposed to 
apartheid and wished to end it 
quickly. They differed on the 
measures to be taken to deal 
with this great evil 
The Foreign Secretary (he 
went on) is an old friend of mine 
and I wish him well in his 
mission, but it requires a quite 
remarkable imagination to be- 
lieve that Mr Botha and his 
friends are prepared to contem- 
plate proposals that would come 
anywhere near international 
acceptance. I hope I shall be 

formulated a possible negotiat- 
ing concept, one requirement 
being the release' of Nelson 
Mandela. While it became clear 
the South African Government 
would like to release him. if was 
impossible to find a formula 
acceptable to that Government 
and to Nelson Mandela, one 
reason being that they could not 
logically release Mandela with- 
out also releasing other political 
prisoners in the same category. 

The negotiating concept was 
left with the South African 
Government for two months 
and they neither accepted nor 
rejected it At tbe second meet- 
ing with Mandela, he read it 
carefully and his answer was 

Economic sanctions would be 
totally counter-productive. 

Their immediate effect would 
be massive unemployment of 
black people and mass hunger. 

If every black person downed 
tools and stayed at home for two 
weeks, they could bring the 
means of production in South 
Africa to a standstill. 

Would not that be a more 
effective measure than sanc- 
tions? (he asked). 

Lord Stewart of FaUuua 
(Lab), a former Foreign Sec- 
retary, said the Prime Minister 
had managed somehow, 
whether she intended to do it or 
not, to give the impression that

the greatest interest of Britain, if 
they believed that there should 
be peace in South Africa, to back

The Bishop of Birmingham (the 
Rt Rev Hugh Monte fiore) said 
that the situation of the black

concerned be would accept the 
concept as a starting point 

I have no doubt (he added) 
from what he went on to say that 
if the concept had been im- 
plemented his would have been 
a powerful voice for calm 
throughout South Africa. 1 am 
convinced, and I weigh my 
words carefully, that he would 
have used all his efforts to bring 
an end to violence if that 
concept had been accepted. 

When the group returned to 
Cape Town for ns most im- 
portant meeting so far with 
ministers on the constitutional 
committee, they began to get 
reports of the raids on the three 
neighbouring countries. I can- 
not understand (he said) why 
the South African Government 
could not have aborted the 
raids. Tbe situation was not 
conducive to good will. 

Lord Sc John of Bietso (Ind) a 
white South African who had 
lived in that country all his life, 
said he wanted to see a non- 
racial South African democracy. 

He did not represent any 
political pony or other interests. 

Tbe choice in South Africa

Negotiations wen: necessary

Congress and political pris-

Mandela. He hoped sanity 
would prevail upon the South 
African Government to release 

The EPG bad made tremen- 
dous progre s s in laying the 
foundations for future 

it clear that if the Foreign 
Secretary returned empty- 
handed there was still no kiiid of 
obligation on this country, in 
her view, to take any measures 
at all. 

This seemed to be a series of 
signals to the South African 
Government saying: “You need 
not worry too much; you have 
friends on the other side of the 
Mediterranean. We shall see to 
it that you do not come to any 
serious harm”. Thai was exactly 
the wrong message to send to the 
South African Government at 
the present time. He viewed the 
whole situation with 
profoundest pessimism. 

Lord Soames (O' who was 
Britain’s last Governor - in 
Rhodesia, said sanctions had 
never worked. 

It was not possible to 
superimpose upon a tribal 
system and custom the 
democratic form of 
Government known in this 

Viscount Whitela*. Lord 
President of the Council, said 
universal repugnance had been 
expressed about a system that 
denied most basic rights to the 
majority of its people because of 
the colour of their skins. 

it was always easier to define 
what they did not want than to 
decide how to eliminate it. 
There were deep differences 
over means. The Government 
deeply regretted that The Hopes 
the EPG had generated were not 
fulfilled. Sir Geoffrey Howe 
faced an extremely difficult task 
but one for which he was well 
fitted. They would all wish him 
well in his endeavours. 

Anti-smoking campaign 

The Government is to mount a 
publicity campaign to deter 
under 16 year-olds from 
smoking. Mr Allan Stewart, 
Under Secretary of State for 
Scotland, indicated this in the 
Commons when a Lords 
amendment to the Protection of 
Children (Tobacco) Bill was 
agreed to. 

The Bill which now awaits 
Royal Assent, tightens the law 
malting U an offence to sell 
cigarettes or any other related 
tobacco product, such as Skoal 

Products, to anyone under 16. It 
comes into effect in three 
months time. 

Lords amendments to the 
Protection of Military Remains 
Bill and the Disabled Persons

agreed to.

Public figures, environmen- 
talists and newspapers here 
are creating a near-hysterical 
wave of opposition to the 
construction of a nuclear pow- 
er plant at Daya Bay in China, 
about 30 miles from Hong 

The groundswell of opposi- 
tion •— being fuelled by Miss 
Maria Tam, a well-known 
legislator, the- influential 
South China Morning Past, 
several mass-circulation Chi- 
nese language newspapers and 
numerous prominent edu- 
cators and scientists - has 
been greatly intensified by the 
Chernobyl nuclear disaster. 

One argument being made 
against the Daya Bay plant is 
that Hong Kong's population 
is so dense that any accident 
could cause radiation sickness 
in huge numbers, and there 
would be no feasible way of 
evacuating the near six mil- 
lion residents of the city. 

Some critics of the project 
have suggested that the plant 
be fuelled by coal or oil, 
especially in view of the recent 
collapse of the world oil price. 

But Sir Jack Cater, a former 
official of the Hong Kong 
Government who is now on 
the board of the Hong Kong 
company, which in a joint 
venture with China, is build- 
ing the plant, said yesterday he 
believed the project would go 
ahead as planned. 

The scheme involves two 
French nuclear reactors and 
turbine generators made by - 
Britain's General Electric 

Company. Most of the power 
produced would be sold to the 
Hong Kong firm of China 
Light and Power.

Riot police 
quell rally 
in Manila 

From Keith Dalton 

Riot .police in Manila fired 
into the air and used tear gas 
and smoke bombs to disperse 
5,000 left-wing demonstrators 
who denounced the Philip- 
pines' “sham" independence 
from the United Stales 40 
years ago. More than 20 
people were injured. 

The protesters, armed with 
a rally permit, had marched to 
the US Embassy chanting 
“Yankee Go Home”. They 
were dispersed moments after 
an explosion rang out from 
behind their ranks. 

The Japanese election 

Fringe strives to woo voters 

Small home-made bombs - 
bottles or containers packed 
with • gunpowder, nails and 
glass - exploded, leaving at 
least nine policemen with 
shrapnel wounds. 

It was the first dash be- 
tween police and left-wing 
students and workers since 
President Aquino took power 
in February. 

Most of the protesters were 
Aquino supporters who re- 
cently formed an alliance of 60 
organizations to demand that 
two large American military 
bases be dismantled. 

About 2,000 of the protest- 
ers later marched back to the 
heavily guarded embassy 
complex, where they were 
allowed to continue their pro- 
test until dusk. 

From David Watts 

Japanese voters can choose 
between the Salaried Workers’ 
Party, the Tax Party .or die 
Welfare Party when they go to 
the polls for the upper and 
lower houses of the Diet next 
weekend. _ 

All parries are offering can- 
didates for the upper house, 
the House of Councillors, 
where half of the 252 seats will 
be contested. 76 from constit- 
uencies across the country and 
50 on a proportional represen- 
tation basis. Voting for the 
lower house, the House of 
Representatives, also takes 
place on July 6. 

Originally the intent was 
that the upper, non-executive 
house, be composed of 
“learned and 'experienced 
persons". In modem elections 
the parties go for popular 
screen personalities,' actresses 
or scriptwriters rather than 
professionals or academics. 

The smaller fringe parties 
were spawned at the last 
election in 1983. when the 
proportional representation 
system was introduced in the 
upper house. Last time oul the 
“salarymen" got a respectable 
1.99 million votes and put two 
members into the house. 

Perhaps the best known is 
the Niin Club — literally the 
Second- House -Club - which- 
was previously led by a veter- 
an. suffragette, the late Miss 
Fusae Ichikawa, who topped 
the national constituency in 
1980 with 2.7 million votes. 

Poll details 

Number of voters: 86,677,716 
(2v425,108 more than In 1983). 
Total constituencies: House of 
ComttiUors: 47 and a single 
national constituency for pro- 
portional repfsentMiw. House 
of Representatives: 130. 

Total seats being contested: 
House of CounciUors 126 (76 
being contested in tbe constit- 
uencies and 50 ander propor- 
tional representation). 

Number of candidates: for 512 
lower boose seats: 837. For 126 
upper house seats: 506. 

The executive House of 
Representatives has 512 seats 
being contested, one more 
than at the last election since a 
redistribution of seats to try 
and even out the disparity of 
representation between rural 
and urban areas. 

Rural areas. 'from which the 
ruling Liberal Democratic 
Pany (LDP) draws its princi- 
pal support, have been over- 
represented in die Diet since 
the War. largely because of the 
shift of population from the 
country to the cities. 

By last September it was 
calculated that a single rural 
vote was worth 4.64 urban 
votes and a re-apportionment 
of sea ts was made to counter- 
act this effect when eight new 
urban seats were added and 
the number of rural seats was 
reduced by seven to bring a 
net gain or one. *, •. 

Three boundary changes 
were made at the same time. 
There are normally between 

three and five seats itr saefr;- 
electoral district; the number. 
being adjusted every five years ;; 

A record 82 women candi- 
dates are rurming for the' ' 
upper house. though tbe nutiT- • 
ber of women candidates- run- : 
ning across the country af 
general elections has tended to . 
decline from tbe number wbb

election.. r - 

Mrs Kiyoko Ono and Miss - 
China tsu Nakayama are the 
two best-known women can-\ 
didates for the upper house in. 
Tokyo, where 50 candidates ~ 
are competing for four seats. 
Mrs Ono is a former Olympic --

and Miss Nakayama is a. '

mission for 

‘ From Peter Nichols 

A new phase opened in the 
search for a solution to the 
Italian political crisis last 
night when Senator Aminlore 
Fanfani was assigned by Presi- 
dent Cossiga to assess the 
difficulties of finding a new 

President Cossiga arrived at 
this decision unwillingly. He 
had hoped that his private 
talks with the political leaders 
and other consultations would 
have been sufficient to allow, 
the formation of a coahtion 
similar to that which resigned 
last Friday. ... 

The main quarrel is be- 
tween the two largest parties 
in the outgoing five-party 
coalition. In particular, the 
Christian Democrats want 
some assurance, as the biggest 
of the five, of being able to 
regain the premiership from 
the Socialists, who have held it 
for a record three years. 

This question of who 
should lead the next govern- 
ment almost immediately as- 
sumed first priority. Signor 
Beuino Craxi, the outgoing 
Socialist Prime Minister, sees 
no reason why he should step 
down when the public opinion 
polls are on his side. The 
Christian Democrats, in the 
Socialists' view, claim an un- 
warranted divine right to lead 
the coalition. 

President Cossiga had 
hoped to be able to lake steps 
yesterday to relaunch the five-

? Mary lebone High Street, which 
has been my village green these 

many years, and for most of them 
a- definition of unchanging perma- 
nence, has recently developed a 
very nasty attack; of the raging - 
instabilities; if many more shops 
disappear without warning. I shall 
begin to think that I am living 
round' the corner from Beau- 
champ Place, a fete I would wish 
on no man. 

This cry .of anguish has been 
wrong from me by the abrupt and 
unsuspected closure of Morris’s, 
which has long been the best 
fruiterer and greengrocer in the 
borough; I became uneasy when, a 
year or so ago, they gave up two- 
thirds of their.premises to a Rank- 
Xerox copying parlour, but they 
squeezed themselves into the 
. remaining bit with great ingenuity, 
"and their quality was undimin- 1 
ished. Then. the. other day. I went 
out to buy a pomegranate, a 
nectarine and a grape, only to find 
that they were not to be had at No 
13. not even for ready money, and 
the windows were filled with • 
announcements heralding the im- 
minent transfer of the Oxfem shop 
from across the road. 

That was the second fruit-and- 
vegetabie emporium in the High 
Street to bite the dust; Russell’s, 
which in' excellence was second 
Only to Morris’s, folded up a year 
or so earlier, and. ominously 
enough, the shop lias remained 
• deserted ever since. A -few doors 
along from.Russell’s there was an. 
attempt by some daftie to make a 
living fay selling nothing but nuts 
and chocolates, but that didn’t last 
long, and I fully expected a recent 
arrival which announced itself as 
The Pasta Place to disappear 
equally quickly, but although they 
do sell pasta, they also sell a wide 
range of other things, all delicious 
and of high quality, and they also 
offer the- -friendliest- and most • 
charming service jn the strew. (All 
the service in the street used to be 
exceptionally good, and most of 
the shops were efficient as wdL-

i . Virginia Woolf described her 
contemporary Gertrude Bell as “a 
: masterful woman who has every- 
one under her thumb, and makes 
you fed a little inefficient.” 

Writing in The Sunday Times in 
1958, Rebecca West said she was 
“tile incarnation of foe eman- 
cipated heiress, using foe gold 
given her by the industrial revolu- 
tion to buy not privilege but foe 
opportunity for noble perform- 
ance”, adding “Charlotte Bronte 
had imagined her in Shirley.” 

Deserved though foe tributes 
and barbed asides may have been, 
when Gertrude Bell died in Bagh- 
dad at foe age of 58, on July 12, 
1926, her legacy was to torment 
foe Middle East and foe world at 
large for ever after. 

It was she who in. 1913 dashed 
off for Herbert Samuel a map of 
Palestine Prima, foe biblical re- 
gion which foe Jews claimed as 
their inheritance, without know-

had approved ter plan in outline 
at foe Cairo Conference foe year 



As Oriental Secretary .in the 
British administration, her task 
was to reconcile foe contradictory 
promises that had been made in 
foe beat of war. When she arrived 
in Cairo with Cox and the 
Shari fian or Hashemite delegates 
to whom the largest of those 
promises was made, ste was 
delighted to find that Ch urchin's 
package, Tbrmulated in London' 
-.with the aid. of the pro-Arab 
■T£. Lawrence at one elbow ami 
the pro-Israeli Richard Mein- 
ertzhagen at the other, agreed in 
almost every detail with hers. 
Neither she nor Cox could have 
realized then that their attempts at 
reconciliation would lead to rival- 
ries and divisions far greater and 

known books. The Desert and the 
Sown and Amurath to Amurath, 

had long since commended her to 
the knowledgeable. Her letters, 
published posthumously by her 
mother, were test sellers on both, 
rides of the Atlantic in foe 1930s. 

Not until the publication of the 
war adventures of her “beloved 
boy” Lawrence, whom she first 
met at Carchemish in 1911 during 

his “archaeological" period, di 
her star begin to wane. Nowadays, 
she is likely to be c onfu sed with 
Vanessa BeO or Gertrude Stein, or 
to be regarded simply as a woman 

explorer of exceptional merit; 

In feet, she discovered no 
hidden places, nor did she make 
any notable contributions to the 
fifong-in of the “great white blot” 
of the Victorian map-makers. She 
was a fearless traveller and, in her 
youth, one of the finest of all 
women mountaineers whose jour- 
neys were paid for by a rich ami 
indulgent family of Nonb-east 
iron- masters. She came to love 
Arabia and its inhabitants, and in 
the end (by no means 
uniquely Jallowed her heart to rule 
her head.

English perception oFhistbiy as a

ties of Turkish rule. 

Known to foe Arabs as Al 
Khatun , “The Lady”, from her 

pre-war travels in the desert lands, 
she was until her death and for a 
decade or-more after the -most, 
famous, and respected of all- foe 
Britons who Aad devoted them- 
selves to foe explbratiraD : and 
politics of the East. Her two best- 

- of-Arafeia-aad its- people was- her 
observation, a quality doubtless 
borne in mind" by her" lifelong 
friend, David Hogarth, when he' 
called her to serve ia' the Arab 
Bureau in Cairo during the first 
year of the 1914-18 war. 

Her descriptions of Arab chiefs 
and foe events of the tribal 
territories are unsurpassed. Of 
King Abdal Aziz ion Abdur- 
rahman — or Ibn Saud as he 
preferred to be called — founder of 
modern Saudi Arabia: “A man of 
splendid physique . . , carrying 
himself with the air of one 
accustomed to command'. his. 
slow sweet smile and the contem- 
plative glance of his heavy-lidded 
eyes ... be combines wifo. his 
qualities as a soldier that grasp of 
statecraft which is yet more highly 
prized by the tribesmen ...” She 
was writing, for the benefit of the 
Foreign Office, of a man . she 
heartily disliked! 

It has teen said that her pen was 
dangerously alluring, particularly 
in terras of official report writing, 
a quality which perhaps, owed 
something to her flirtation with 
journalism in the first decarte of 
the century when she became the 
eyes and ears of The Times in 
lands stretching from Suez to the 

Tigris, under, foe newspaper’s 
foreign editor' Valentine- ChiroL 

Governments have little time to 
think. Ministers’ immediate prob- 
lems fill foe waking hours, driving, 
out. reflection or chats witirone 
another about foe future. Rresum- 
. .ably foe Tories’.' new strategy^ 
group of. senior ministers is in- 
tended to cure this occupational 
deficiency. Ideally it should shut 
itself away in a country house for a 
week and cut off foe phone. After 
three days some fresh thoughts 
might bubble up. 

A dangerous enemy of this 
government is public boredom. It 
will have been in office eight or 
perhaps nine years by the next 
election.- -Millions of new voters - 
will have spent their formative 
years of awareness of the world : 
under its aegis. They have no 
recollection of life under Labour. 
Many might te tempted , to give 
the cheery Mr Kinnock or the 
handsome, forceful Dr Owen a 
whirl. A change of government is 
superficially exciting. 

It is not sufficient for the Tories 
to remind us of their achieve-' 
merits, important though these 
are. Nor; are warnings of the havoc 
if they were undone. There must, 
be something -new. 

The National Health Service is 
in a ruL That is- why those who 
answer opinion poll questions say 
they would be willing to -pay-

social Services, even though they" 
mayinot really- mean it Bui more 
mooey.speru.on the NHS tends to 
go bn paying more to - swollen 
staffs without much improving 
services to foe patients. The 
solution'could be the creation of a 
special fund to finance projects of 
direct help to patients — for exam- 
ple the . purchase -of more kidney 
machines and equipment to con- 
duct eye operations to the world's 
highest standards. 

There is general unease over 
education. The school population 
goes-down. but so do educational 
standards. There is- plenty of 
money for education: it is not' , 
-organized efficiently. Kenneth I 
Baker. - the new Education Sec-.'" 
reiary. is on the' right track in 
wanting to have greater central 
government control. That might; 

■ remove some of the. anomalies 
whereby local education authori- 
ties such as foe ILEA spend more 
money per pupil than almost 
anywhere else and get some of foe 
worst examination results. 

But foe gap between private and 
public education would remain. 
The Tories believe in the ef- 
ficiency of the market place. Why 
don't they try it in education and 
give parents a real choice, perhaps 
by putting into effect ;iis voucher 
plan? That would encourage good i 
schools and destroy, foe -bad, .

of it as a lesson for the future 
rather than pass over h in 
silence .deserves respecL That 
acceptance is the only realistic 
foundation, for the Anglo- 
German relationship. - 
. Today, our two countries 
haye as much in common as 
they .have ever-had. We both 
have elected governments of a 
Conservative, complexion, a 
commitment to -Europe and to 
a close strategic relationship 
witii thfe United Suites. We are 
in many' respects natural part- 
ners,;not least’ within Europe: 

Here, the. expansion of the 
. Community means that Brit-, 
ainand Germahy will iiicreas- 
ingry; : find themselves 
representing: the concerns of 
the north \ European • indus-

,ln particular, we-, have a mu- 
tual interest iff* ensuring .tiiat 
ihe- already dveiseoerous sub- 
sides under .the Common 
Agriculture i Policy, are- not 
underwritten’ indefinitely . 

Because of their, .relative 
wealth within the EEC, Britain 
and the Federal Republic 
-working in concert also have a 
potentially strong voice'within 
the Community. It has been a 
leitmotif of President; von 
Weizsacker’s statements ‘ this- 
week that -thfs voice should be 
used to strengthen the position 
of Europe in its relationship 
with the United States, and 
raise the profile of - Europe in 
the world. . 

This reflects the ideathat the 
North Atlantic alliance works 
best when the American and 
European pillars bear, an equal 
weight of. the responsibility. 
But it also conceals within 
itself, the distant hope of 
Germans (not • only in' the 
West) that the two Germanies 
might one day be united 
within the context.of a strong 
and united Europe. . 

This is an essentially Ger- 
man preoccupation which 
should not be allowed- to 
detract from , the priority of 
strengthening the integrity of 
Europe and maintaining the 
primacy of the Atlantic -alli- 
ance, It. is to' President von 
Weizsacker’s credit and’ to the 
credit of the ^hglo-German

most suspect elements in the 
water package. 

But noneofthis is new. The 
complexities of water regula- 
tion and asset tide have been 
apparent for a long time. The 
Trustee Savings Bank saga 
should surely have alerted one 
and all to toe vigilance of toe 
courts. They, not unreason- 
ably, dislike anticipation by 
public bodies of statutory 
change. Mr Baker must have 
told his colleagues of potential 
problems before he was al- 
lowed so blithely to commit 
the government to a legislative 

To lose the timetable for toe 
privatization of British Air- 
ways (another announcement 
by Mr Ridley ) was mis- 
fortune. To shelve the sale of 
British Leyland was 
misjudgement Now water is 
added to the list of promised 
privatizations that will not 
occur in the immediate politi- 
cal fiiture. It starts to look not 
just that the sale of these assets 
has been bungled, but that toe 
government, having first over- 
sold toe whole enterprise, gets 
cold feet as soon as difficulties 

. Perhaps on water the Gov- 
ernment has allowed itself to 
be bounced by the loquacious 
Mr Watts, whose original mo- 
tive was toe perfectly proper 
one of resenting toe fiscal 
.regime imposed on his man- 
agers by toe Treasury. Mr 
Watts might now politely — he 
is after all a public servant — 
be asked to maintain a period 
of silence. Meanwhile, ques- 
tions of water management 
and investment will not go 
away; Mr Ridley should be put 
on his guard that important 
decisions; with long term con- - 
sequences, should not be de- 
ferred because of uncertainty 
about water’s future which he 
has bad a hand in creating. 

Disputed risk of 
passive smoking 

From Professor Robin H ms and 
Professor Julian Peto 
Sir. Your account (June 25) of a 
then unpublished study on the risk 
of lung cancer in the non-smoking 
spouses of smokers reported Sir 
Richard Doll’s observation that 
passive smoking probably does 
cause lung cancer and asserted 
that "his verdict contradicts the 
conclusions of the latest research 
on the risks of passive smoking" 
In point of fact. Sir Richard 
went on to say that the increase in 
lung cancer risk caused by passive 
smoking is probably between 10 
per cent and 30 per cent. The 
study to which you refer suggested 
an 1 1 per cent increase in risk; and 
in the analysis restricted to lung 

Manners, materials and memorials 

cancer patients whose spouses 
were also interviewed, which may 
be more reliable, the estimated 
increase was 33 per cent Far from 
contradicting Sir Richard Doll’s 
conclusions, this study thus tends 
to confirm them. 

Your report also says that on the 
basis of these results “the institute 
of Cancer Research has concluded 
that inhaling other people's smoke 
carries no significant increase in 
risk of lung cancer" This research 
on the effects of passive smoking, 
which began in 1977. was con- 
ducted in collaboration with the 
Institute of Cancer Research but 
funded by the Tobacco Advisory 
Council, under an arrangement 
which included adequate safe- 
guards of scientific impartiality. 

Estimates of such relatively low 
risks are always uncertain, but 
both epidemiological research and 
measurements of the amount of 
smoke .inhaled suggest that the 
risk to non-smokers of developing 
lung cancer as a result of living or 
working with smokers may be of 
the order of one in 1.000. This is 
about 100 limes less than the risk 
to smokers, but it is probably 100 
times greater than the risk caused 
by asbestos in contaminated 
schools- and homes, and non- 
smokers are certainly entitled to 
ask that it be taken into account in 
considering further restrictions on 
smoking in public places. 

Some readers may not be aware 
of the technical meaning of "not 
significant”. It need not imply that 
an effect is negligible, as in normal 
usage, but that a particular survey 
included too few subjects to 
demonstrate an effect conclu-

From the Secretary of ihe Council 
for the Care of Churches 
Sir. Bernard Levin's article (June 
7) and the correspondence in your 
columns about memorials in 
churchvards (June 26. July 1. 3) 
could riot be more timely or more 
imponanL One could argue that 
in contemporary England, we get 
the memorials we deserve: and it 
certainly is unrealistic to expect, 
without education and effort, a 
higher standard of design in the 
churchyard and the cemetery than 
in other aspects of life. 

In particular, it is idle to blame 
the “regulations". So far as con- 
secrated Anglican churchyards are 
concerned, the ultimate arbiter as 
to what is or is not allowable 
belongs to the diocesan chan- 
cellor, advised by his diocesan 
advisory committee for die care of 
churches. The “regulations” for 
which “guidelines" would be a 
better word, indicate what an 
incumbent may allow at his own 
discretion without recourse to the 
chancellor and it is inadvisable for 
' him to go beyond these limits. 

It is often forgotten by those 
who seek to erect memorials (and I 
have been in this position myself) 
that while it may be for them a 
private act. carried out at a 
particularly vulnerable moment, it 
is carried out in a prominently 
public place and it is only reason- 
able that a churchyard memorial 
should seek to respect the genius 
loci. This means congruent 
materials (and where in England is 
polished granite a congruent ma- 
terial?), good design and fine 
craftsmanship. • 

England is teeming with artistic 
talent and, in particular, with good 
letter cutters and well trained 
sculptors. It is a tragedy that 
incumbents and others do not take 

more trouble to inform the be- 
reaved about what is possible. 

In addition, people often take- 
decisions about memorials loo 
early in .the process of .grieving. A

simple. guideline would be for 
memorials not to be allowed. 

memorials not to be allowed, 
other than in exceptional cases, 
until a year has elapsed from the 
time of’buriaL 

The Crafts Council and the. 
Council for the Care of punches 
maintain, registers of ariists and 
craftsmen and many diocesan 
advisory committees maintain 
their own- lists of people who can 
carry out first-rate work. Many of 
them may be members of the 
National Association of Master 
Masons, who are. themselves try- 
ing to raise standards. 

There is one more problem and 
it is becoming- one of heroic ., 
proportions. All over England 
there are minor masterpieces of, 
the craftsman's art, of the 1 7th. 

1 8th and 19th century, in church* 
yards falling- into irreversible 
decay when the expenditure of 
quite modest sums of money . 
would prolong their life for the 
foreseeable future. 

At Painswick in Gloucester- 
shire, described by Alec Oifton- 
T ay I or as “the most beautiful 
churchyard in England”, they 
have appointed a guardian of the 
monuments and are developing a 
positive policy of care and 
conservation- This needs urgent 
consideration in countless other 
parishes, or it will be too late to 
save an important -and: repre- 
sentative aspect of out national' 
artistic heritage.. - . i :

Cricket decline 

From Dr H. C. Tomlinson . 

Sir, Perhaps schools cricket is in 
greater danger than even Messrs 
Green (June 24) and Kirch (June 
28) realise. 

Proposals for altering present 
term dates for senior schools in 
the independent sector have just 
been drafted to allow for the re- 
scheduling of GCSE and A-leveJ 
examinations in 1988. when there 
will be a common timetable for all 
exam boards and June will be- 
come the exam month. 

This will inevitably result in a 
reduction in both the number of 
schools fixtures played in that 
month (about half of this school's 
external matches,, .for example, 
_ occur in June) and the number of 
boys free for mjer-schools crickeL- 
The time available for iniemal 

cricket practices, moreover, will 
also inevitably be curtailed. 

Further, the restructuring of the 
summer. term, which from 1988 
will begin in mid (rather than late)- 
April and end in late June (rather 
. than mid-July), and toe. increased - 
. likelihood of A-level candidates 
leaving school early, immediately, 
their • -exams have finished. wilL 
mean -that July will be lost for- 
schools crickeL . That will leave 
less than six weeks in April and 
May and, if recent summers are 
anything to go by, in practice 
about 10 fine days for cricket in 
those weeks. 

May I. make a plea for schools 
cricket to be played in September 
and early October? 

Yoprs faithfully.

Collecting VAT 

From the Chairman of the Board 
of Customs and Excise- 
Sir , Richard Ratten suggests (July 
!) that in future businesses will 
have less time in which to submit 
their vaT returns than they do 
now. This is not so. 

The due date for submission of 
returns remains one month after 
toe end of the accounting period 
concerned and this will not be 
altered when toe default surcharge 
on_ persistency late payments 
comes into operation. Moreover, 
toe law specifically relates . the 
“due dare” to the date of receipt of 
toe return by the Department, 
which, will be recorded. The input 
of information to our computer is 
quite irrelevant 

Nor is it correct to say that a 
taxpayer will not know if his 
returns are received late. If this 
happens twice in any 12-month 
■ period, he will have clear warning 
that a further default could lead to 
surcharge. If postal delays are of a 
kind- - which could not reasonably 
have been allowed for, the law 
provides that the resultant default 
does not count for surcharge 

Mr Platten also refers to prob- 
lems with toe timely receipt of 
suppliers’ invoices. He may tike to 
know that toe recent White Paper, 
Building businesses ...not bar- 
r/'fw, included a proposed review 
“cash accounting” where VAT 
would be claimed and paid on a 
cash basis, rather than on toe basis 
of. invoices to be completed by 
mid- 1987.-. .

S Africa crisis 

From Mr J. Me Bruce Lockhart 

- Sir, In all the current talk about 
South “ Africa there are some 
important factors that are hardly 
ever mentioned, perhaps because 
they are uncomfortable. Here are 
five of them; 

1. The record of most independent 
black governments in Africa is one 
of corruption, inefficiency and 
violence. Not a single democracy 
has survived. Is there any reason 
io think a black South African 
-government would bo any dif- 

. No Commonwealth country 
would lift a finger to help Britain u 
it were not in its own interests. 
Britain should similarly ignore 
any political pressure from toe 
Commonwealth. Should this re- 
sult in toe break-up of toe 
Commonwealth, no one should 
weep. It might well lead to a 
healthier relationship between 
Britain and the individual mem- 
bers of the Commonwealth. This 
is central to the debate on sanc- 
tions on South Africa. It is rarely 

3. BBCTeJevisiop has consistently 
tried to build up toe image of the . 

ANC (African National Congress) 
and of Bishop Tutu, fa contrast, 
toe strength of tribalism, and the 
ability and stature of Chief 
Butoelezi, two major factors in 
South African politics, are rarely 

4. The South African problem is 
not a moral problem. It is all about 
power — power inside South. 
Africa, and power inside, the 
backyard of those involved out- 
side South Africa. The politicians 
and the media confuse toe Issue. 

51' The .Soviets arm and train ANC ■ 
terrorists. They have a large degree 
of influence over toe -policies of 
toe ANC because of the number of . 
key jobs on toe ANC executive 
committee held by members ofthe 
South African Communist Party. 
Heavy economic sanctions against 
South Africa would suit the Sovi- 
ets very well We hear little about 

Yours, - - .

Samuel Palmer echo 

From Mr Raymond Lister 
Sir. May I comment on two points 
raised by . the President of the 
Royal Society of Painters in 
Water-Colours in his letter pub- 
lished today (June 28). 

He states that Palmer’s political 
pamphlet is “now lost". In fact a 
copy was recently discovered by 
Mr Michael Collinge in the Maid- 
stone Public Record Office. It is 
reprinted iri fan, . with a .com- 
mentary by Mr David Bindmatu 
in Btbke.,an Illustrated Quarterly; 
,FalL 1985. ■. . 

. He states also that Palmer 
returned to London 'because of 
contemporary agricultural unrest 
Whilst this may have been a feeler 
in mak|ng tip his mind tojeave 
Shoreham, the main reason was 
his.-engagemetii to John Linneirs 
daughter. Hannah. Hts income 
was inadequate to support. a wife, 
and it was only by returning to 
London that .he could hope to 
increase tins, by finding an ade- 
quate market for sa!es:of his work 
arid by building up a practice as an 
art teacher. '.

From Mr A M. Davies 
Sir, According to yoqr correspon- 
dent Professor James Manor 
(June 21) ; wito jus exerting stories 
of brilliant, scholars poached by 
American administrators, .“toe 
British^ Government must in- 
crease its support of the 
universities”. That Sir, is not 
wharis required What is required 
is that British universities should 
regain their -independence and 
self-respect. . 

There are many ways in which 
universities could do much more 
to help themselves: by raising 
funds, from former members, from 
charities and from business; by 
encouraging em ployers to sponsor 
students; and by gradually moving 
towards charging, more or less 
economic foes for most students. 

With increased wealth univer- 
sities would be able to offer 
scholarships to a certain number 
of students, while others would be 
able to look for support not only to 
central and local government 
(which would doubtless be willing 
to continue some funding at a 
modest level) but also to parents, 
potential, employers and toe 
banks. . 

A limited amount of jpeudent 
borrowing would surely seem lo 
many Students a good investment. . 
It is absurd that — as happens now. 
— the State should decide how 

S people are to have the 
ts of higher education, il 

benefits of higher education, if 
those who want them are willing 
to pay for them. 

Independence for the univer- 
sities would also transform toe 
situation for academic salaries. 
Universities would be able — and 
indeed obliged — to pay whatever 
salaries would be needed (likely to 
be much higher than at present) 

. and new colleges would be estab- 
lished to meet toe. demand for. 
some subjects and courses. .The 
balance between - teaching and 
research would be clarified. ■ " 

The uhiveisities have only 
themselves, to Name if they are 
now being bound hand and foot by 
the State because they are afraid to 
take responsibility for themselves.

7Did George Mallory 'and Andrew 

Irvine reach the summit of 
Everest in 3924? Over 60 years : 
later the question is still raised, 
stiD remains unanswered, arid 
indeed, is probably unanswerable. 

Noel Odell, the expedition.^ 
geologist, relates the dramatic 
story of the last sighting of the tu >0 
men. Space does not permit the 
account of his tremendous feat, 

. during which for two hours he 
searched forhis companions, arid 
. in which, without oxygen, he 
' climbed to 27,500 ft Professor 
Odell, now in his 96th year, lives 
in Cambridge.

form, which periodically immersed 
one in gloom, but the wind 
remained quite light for such an

Judges and politics 

From Mr John. Kentleton 
Sir, Norman Podhoretz’s distinc- 
tion between judicial activism (or 
judicial usurpation when; he 
particularly dislikes it) and ju- 
• dirial respect for the Constitution 
under the peijorative -heading 
. “When judges seize the law” (July 
I)' begs the question: namely, 
should the Supreme Court inter- 
pret the letter of the spirit ofthe 
Consti lotion? And since it cannot 
interpret in a vacuum, it must 
have regard for time, place and, 
indeed, occasion. 

The assumption that, the 
-Constitution has an inviolate and 
literal integrity was surely laid to 
• rest, if it was ever believed, bjr

Antonin Scalas’s nomination is 
to be welcomed inasmuch" as it 
reflect a. period when conser- 
vatism is in' the- ascendant, as 
previous appointments reflected 
other viewpoints. The mixture of

provides thal creative tension

Snappy girls dressed to kill 

The Bangles 
Town & Country 

the Bangles' first hit single 
was lopping the charts before 
most people had time to 
realize that they are four 
attractive girls whose willing- 
ness to dress up and pose for 
the camera makes them ideal 
dream-fodder for the Madon- 
na generation - an audience 
more interested in where its 
pop stars shop for clothes than 
in their views on American 
foreign policy. 

So irresistible that it would 
have been a hit in the hands of 
four singing Cabinet minis- 
ters. "Manic Monday” was 
followed by Different Light , an 
album crammed with jangling 
guitars, snappy tunes and 
delirious California voices, 
bringing modem production 
techniques to bear on struc- 
tures and textures echoing 

back to the Byrds, the Beatles 
and — in the wide, sunny 
harmonies — the Mamas and 
the Papas. 

After watching their perfor- 
mance in Kentish Town on 
Thursday night, though, it 
seemed pertinent to wonder 
how much of the Bangles' 
success is due to the shrewd- 
ness of their record producer, 
David Kahne. Their heavy- 
handed and literal-minded 
performance, strong on the 
kind of head-tossing poses 
long favoured by the dullest 
sort of male rock musician, 
hardly confirmed the qualities 
of sensitivity and imagination 
shown in the original selection 
and arrangement of such fine 
songs as "Manic Monday” 
(written by Prince). Kimber- 
ley Rew's thoughtful "Goin' 
Down to Liverpool". Jules 
Shear's poignant “If She Knew 
What She Wants” and Liam 
Sternberg's wacky “Walk Like 
an Egyptian”.

Court in the Act 
Royal Interchange 

From Pinero to Brighouse, the 
Royal Exchange Company 
have made several successful 
gambles on long-forgotten 
farces, and in this — their 
second flutter on the Parisian 
duo of Hennequin and Veber 
— they have again struck 

The authors, contemporar- 
ies and some time collabora- 
tors with Feydeau, have all the 
classic Right Bank equipment: 
absolute confidence in social 
stereotype, and the ability to 
extract endless running gags 
from the minimum of materi- 
al. like streamers pouring 
from a conjuror’s sleeve. They 
also have the nerve to bend 
some boulevard rules without 
any loss in comic eneigy. 

As thumped home in

unveils hypocrisy in the legal 
profession: employing the 
well-worn device of a luscious- 
ly availabe operetta star who 
camps out in the house of a 
provincial magistrate, 
Tricointe. and proceeds to 
ensnare every member of the 
bench who crosses ber path.

cifully sexy costumes match

formula that once made Fleet-

career one day. On this occa-

Steele’s less coquettish deliv-

enthusiasm of the sisters Vicki 
and Debbi Peterson, lead gui- 
tarist and drummer respec- 
tively. drove the group's 
exuberantly noisy version of 
Arthur Lee's “7 and 7 Is”. 

It was a bit depressing, 
though, to find them perform- 
ing a largely pre-recorded 
version of “Walk Like an 
Egyptian", at which point they 
assumed the cartoon-like 
quality of the all-girl group in

I'm Not 

Big cities exacerbate the every- 
day tribulations of the aged: 
the pace and noise and vio- 
lence of other people's lives 
remind them aJl too nearly 
that they are approaching the 
end of their own. 

In self-defence they make 
for the open spaces where, 
inevitably, they fall in with 
other displaced persons of a 
similar age and. inadvertently, 
provide material for the park 
bench school of playwriting. 

The American dramatist 
Herb Gardner has set his 
folksy urban comedy in New 
York’s Central ParicThe two 
old codgers whose discourse 
we are invited to witness are 
Nat (Paul Scofield, disguised 
by a beret, a goatee and wire- 
frame spectacles and equipped 
with a walking stick) and 
Midge (Howard Rollins, in 

ft goes without saying that- 
each of these pillars of die 
community is quaking In their 
elasticated boots at the danger 
of professional ruin: and that' 
the Minister of Justice, who 
arrives in the course of pursu- 
ing a moral purge of the 
magis£rature*-is-ihe first to be 
gobbled up by La Gobette. 

To the force’s natural de- 
ments. the authors craftily add 
some artificial extras — nota- 
bly burdening Tricointe with a 
daughter who only speaks 
English, and an ex-housemaid 
wire with an obsession for 
brass polishing. In due course; 
these seeds sprout on the 
grand scale: turning brass 
polishing into a refined sexual 
perversion, and stranding the 
daughter and her lover be- . 
tween a beefy bilingual cop 
who throws himself into the 
task of translating the protests 
of an outraged virgin. 

True to the Paris style, the 
cpmedy nowhere depends on 
embarrassment There is pan- 
ic. frustration, and apoplectic 
chagrin. But anyone who finds 
himself in a compromising 
position is a cue for him to 
attack. Gobette and Tricointe 
may be caught m the bedroom 
by the minister but instead of 
cowering in cupboards (the 
British tactic) Gobette sails on 
in the role of the wife and 
proceeds to play the high 

thrift-store clothing, impene- . 
trably opaque spectacles and 
soft cap). 

Midge is the janitor of a 
nearby apartment block, 
whose long service is jeopar- 
dized by enfeebled eyesight: 
Nat is simply anyone he 
chooses to be at the time - a 
Cuban spy. for instance, or a 
"Dr Engels". 

Nat's idea of amusement 
consists of creating minor 
havoc through his random 
impostures. Even his married 
daughter, who has betrayed 
her socialist upbringing by 
adopting the “colour-sup” life . 
in Great Neck, fells for his 
nonsense. He is. in other 
words, that character so be- 
loved of American main- 
stream comedy, the naughty 
old prankster. 

The only credible constant 
in Nat's characterseeras to be 
his conviction, unshaken after 
more than half a century, that 
American society is rotten to 
the core — and no' more so 
.than in the Big Apple. 

- bourgeois -hostess -far more- 
effectively than the legitimate 
brass-polishing absentee. 

A modern . writer might 
have treated this as~a. superb 
pretext for class revenge. That . 
does not happen here. Goberte 
acts her part white knowing 
-her place: buL-un like Jhe run , 
of fersican temptresses, tile 
also ccrnsumates her attach- 
ments. thus forcing the plot of 
the dreary impasse of. sexual 

Opening in a brass- 
crammed living room and 
ending in a white art nouveau 
hotel. Stephen Doncaster’s de- 
sign at once rdfects the play’s 
comic excess and its thorough- 
bred precision. For most of 
the way Mr Murray's produc- 
. tion likewise combines attack 
and poise. Michael Denison's 
Tricointe, is too ready to pfay 
-the -victim: this stem moral 
guardian should not so obvf- 
ously start out on the receiving 
end. Otherwise. Lee Monta- 
gue. as the minister, runs a 
fine gamut from oily high- 
status rhetoric to moans of 
inarticulate derangements: 
and GabrieUt Drake's Gobette 
is a commanding Odalisque, 
voluptuous as a canned apri- 
cot. and never more armour- 
plated than' when stripped 
down to her corset. .

The Forbidden 

Hobart and Maclean 

Last year, the final show in 
Jamie Maclean's gallery at 35 
St George's Street before it 
passed into other hands was 
Forbidden Images, a first re- 
spectable gallery exploration 
in this country of the riches, 
artistic and otherwise, of the 
intriguing half-world of “un- 
der-plain -cover”. Despite 
(and no doubt partly because 
of) the discreet window-dis- 
play and the notices warning 
that those who ventured with- 
in might be offended, the show 
was a great success, and 
contained a surprising amount 
of real -art as well as a lot of 
good, not-too-clean fun. 

This year the same dealer, 
in partnership with Timothy 
Hobart, is back in the same 
premises, now the showrooms 
of Peter Biddulph. the dealer 
in historic musical instru-- 
ments. with a follow-up show. 
The Forbidden Library, until 
July 13. 

This time the emphasis is 
on book illustration. There are 
other things too: detached 
prints not precisely related to 
any literary or para-literary 
text, the odd drawing like 
Mucha's for a Sarah Bern- 
hardt poster or (odder) some 
bold excursions by Cocteau 
and Berard into the mate 

. brothels of Paris and Mar- 
seilles, and some jolly and 
fancifully acrobatic litho- 
graphs from the famous series 
after the Beidermeier court 
artist Peter FendL 
Other works will be familiar 
to those au hit with scholarly 
American facsimiles,- which 
include in recent years the 
erotic sketchbook of the Hun- 
garian Mihaly von Zichy and 
the bitterly satirical etchings 
of the -Belgian Martin van 
Made. Not to mention, in a 
more popular format, the 
numerous "amorous 
illustrations'* of the Marquis 
von Bayros, working often 
under the pseudonym ofChoi- 
sy le Conin. but quite unable 
thereby to disguise his unique 
virtuosity with pen and ink, 
almost a match for his con- 
temporary Beardsley, who 
here turns up with his long- 
banned illustration for 
Lysistrata. ■ 

But all these are non- 
French. and it is in the Paris- 
published that the main body 
of the exhibition is to be 
found. From the ISih century 
on. the French seem to have 
been bent on produdng books 
which will uphold their highly 
profitable reputation for sexu- 
al sophistication. Not all the 
series of illustrations drawn 
upon can be qualified as high 
art. but it is amazing how 
consistently we find great 
technical competence and 
gleefully extrovert invention

was first heard in 1935 on 
Radio 3. Last Wednesday, in 
John Tydeman's production, 
it was given a Radio 4 repeat, 
the first of six plays, winners 
of the Giles Cooper Awards 
for 1985. which will be heard 
again over the next Few weeks. 

The awards themselves 
were presented by Harold 
Pinter at an informal ceremo- 
ny two weeks ago. ‘ Pinter 
recalled that soon after the 
ignominious failure of the first 
production of The Birthday 
Party, when it must have 
seemed to him that his career 
had begun and ended in a 
week, there arrived in the post 
an invitation from the BBC 
radio drama department to 
write a play for them. “The 
depth of their encourage- 
ment". said Mr Pinter, "was 
immeasurable". I suspect it 
still is for many playwrights 
whom we may. yet live to 

But there is no need to look 
to repeats alone. For only last 
week radio reminded us of its 

virtues with something shin- 
ing and new-minted. Hie 
Ffeld of the Star (Radio 4. ) 
was a feature compiled by one 
of its own most talented 
drama producers. Shaun 
MacLoughlin. which followed 
him and his 12-ycar-oId son, 
Seamus, as they cycled all the 
way along the medieaval pil- 
grim route that runs from 
Mont-Saint-Michel - in Nor- 
mandy to Santiago de Com- 
postela in the north-west of 
Spain. Day after day: over 
some five weeks, they rode, 
slaying the night at hostels or 
monasteries that still line the 
route and often expect to lodge 
pilgrims free of charge. 

Seamus witnessed the 
catching of a large carp and 
became obsessed with the idea 
of possessing a fishing rod; 
they were pursued by a hostile 
alsatian which father fended 
of with a sprayof pepper- (By 
what amazing’foresight did he 
have that?) and in a moment 
of leisure Seamus took the 
opportunity to teach his dad 
“a bit about BMWs”. 

All this and much more had 

been recorded in their diaries 

from which both father and 
son read extracts. Very 
colourful they were, but more 
important and impossible to 
convey in isolated quotes, 
they transmitted the impres- 
sion of a mighty journey made 
resonant by being set within, 
the context of innumerable 
other journeys along the self- 
same route. 

Common to all times and 
people was the sheer elation 
that seized- them as- they- 
breasted the last rise and there 
was Compostelaspread before 
them, ft was a measure of this 
programme's magic that the 
listener shared in- that ejation-

For every silver cloud a

tary was an account of atti-

town of Ponadown where- 20

used to live in relative amity 
with. 30 -per cem of Pnaesr 
tarns, are now enclosed within 
one section of the place and do 

not dare to venture into its 
main street. 

Let mesay that this was 
from one point of view an 
exceedingly well made and 
' compelling programme Ms 
Barron had persuaded her 
interviewees to declare them- 
selves with chilling candour. 
The main j»5int at issue was 
whether this summer's Protes- 
tant marches' would be able to

••■’The - Tunnel" -which runs

- -a 




























in the air 

U p the seemed slope we 
toiled and sweated while 
ahead went Monsieur and 
Madame, employing an ef- 
ficient lope obviously acquired by a 
lifetime of healthy walking. Both were 
in their early 70s: they owned the gite 
in which we were staying and, as 
favoured guests, we were being shown 
what they did -in their retirement, 
which was to carve a sizeable hillside 
into terraces and plant it with 
cherries, apricots and about 400 oaks, 
white and black. In' the summer the 
work had been so bard and the sun so 
hot that they had driven their 
rot ova tors naked. “Nudisme. r \ 
quipped Monsieur. 

At the summit the mistral blew like 
a bullet but we stood it for several 
minutes to enjoy the view. Below, the 
market gardens, vineyards and vil- 
lages of the Comiat Venaissin. On the 
horizon, the spiked peaks of the 
Dentelles. tike a row of teeth, and 
away to the right, the dominating 
shape of the 6,260 ft Mont Ventoux, 
where. the cyclist Tommy Simpson 
died and where, said Monsieur, the 
mistral sometimes blew so strong that 
the army garrison stationed there was 
perforce confined to barracks. 

The oaks, we learned oh the way 
down, were for truffles. The saplings 
would take at least IS years before a 
truffle would grow within sniffing 
distance of their roots, and then there 
was no guarantee, even with the best 
hired dog. of finding any. Was this 
not a risky venture? 

Perhaps, . said Monsieur. But one 
must look to the future, If the trees 
produced no truffles they would plant 
some more. Here he permitted him- 
self.a smile. * 

Below the terraces the couple had 
constructed a breeze-block cobanon 
in which, among the tractors and 
below ranks of preserved- cherries, 
Madame treated us to an aigo boulido 
(in the Provencal patois) or, as she 
called it. eau bouille{ Madame scorns 
the patois): an infusion of laurel, 
thyme sage, garlic and salt, with 
toast, olive oil and garlic added in the 
bowl. Aigo boulido solve la vido, 
quoted Madame reluctantly. 

£ This infusion saves lives. The herbs 
bad ail been picked on the terraces, 
and could be seen in abundance at 
any - focal ■ market - At Buis-les- * 
Baronnies. the other side of Mont 
Ventoux, 85 per cent of the French 
herb, harvest changes, hands in jwo 
days, each July. 

Next day we ventured into the 
foothills, to the Roman town of 
Vaisoo-la-Romaine. where it was 
market day. There indeed were the 
herbs and aromatic plants, in. muslin 
bags displayed, a festival of colour 
and scent On one stall alone I 
counted 60 varieties. Buy a handful of 
six or seven, drop them in layers into 
glass jars, and. you have instant 
holiday presents. Or you can buy your

true fove's door. And then: Le bon 
muscat de Beaume el leferigouiet se 
bo i vent a la regalade. But here the 
ferigoulet that must be tipped down 
the throat is not the herb itself (Latin, 
ferigoletum. a place where thyme 
abounds), but the wine from 
Frigoulet the village of thyme. And 
the bon muscat is the sweet musca- 
dine of Beaumes de Venise, to be had 
at any Sainsbury’s but better tasted, 
as we did, in the village itself. We 
stole a grape or two from a harvest 
truck and were naively surprised that 
they lasted just tike the wine. 

The word Venise is a corruption of 
Venaissin, itself a corruption of the 
name of another village, Venasque, 
which was the capital of this fertile 
basin at the lower end of the Rhone 
valley when it was given to Pope 
Gregory III in 1274. And under the 
Holy See it- stayed, long after the 
popes left Avignon, until the Revolu- 
tion reclaimed it That is the reason 
why the region's most illustrious wine 
village is called Chateauneuf-du- 

^Tiese days the capital of this land. 
of popes and herbs, if we discount 
Avignon itself, is the bustling town of 
Carpentras. where in 1 540 Pope Paul 
III granted safe conduct to anyone 
visiting the market from Thursday to 
Saturday, midday. There had been a 
little trouble over strangers selling at 
low prices (a herb mountain, per- 
haps?). The market, under a broad 
avenue of planes, is still large and 
vibrant, and we were pleased to see 
the 60-herb stall with its attendant 
donkey there as well, its other points 
of sale being Orange and Avignon. 
How is it that French markets seem 
timeless and natural when British 
markets seem, in the worst sense of 
the word, so cheap? 

Perhaps our more efficient farming 
has done for them, or perhaps the 

The herb market at Vaison-te-Romaine: so timeless and so natural 

answer lies in Monsieur's serene 
philosophy. This part of Provence, 
certainly, seems little wearied by age. 
In the Roman theatre at Orange, the 
best preserved in the world, you can 
stand alone on the stage and anachro- 
nistically proclaim, to the amusement 
of American tourists, that you come 
to bury Caesar. (The Romans,- appar- 
ently. did their proclaiming inside 
wooden masks, aiming their voices at 
the stage door, thus achieving ex-, 
traordinary amplification).. 

R ound the corner, in Orange's 
market, a tradesmen was 
selling his herbs with the aid 
of a microphone and, for a 
gimmick, a few dead snakes. I foiled 
to make the connection; but the mike 
seemed all at one with the scene. Even 
the garish plastic flowers, arranged in 
patterns on the cobbles, did not seem 
out of place. On the stalls were great 
black olives, unbeatable, from Nyons. 
And because it was October, the first 
chestnuts, at a price. 

for the patois, the original longue 
d'oc, for which the poet Mistral an 
aptly-named Nobel Prize winner, 
fought a hard battle a century ago. It 
was once a great language; Dante, we 
are told, toyed between Provencal 
and Tuscan for his Divine Comedy. 
But I heard no trace of its oohs and 
ohs. . 

It is hardly spoken these days, said 
.Madame, back at lhe_ gite, as w e 
relaxed over her home-made walnut 
liqueur. Intheircottage garden were 
figs, lemons, quinces, pears, apples 
and a venerable bay tree. 

Hardly spoken. But then, in such a 
cornucopia, what need . of an ancient 
tongue? One must look to the future. 

Making- 1 play wfrHe the sun 
shines is getting easier every 
year. Most' parents breathe a 
sigh, of re fief .at the slightest 
sign of good , weather, as they 
can get their offspring into the 
garden -to wreak their exuber- 
ance -on swings, slides, 
sandpits and the shrubbery. 
There is- plenty of equipment 
in every price range to help

A good selection of outdoor

er! in a cheerful blue and 
yeHow. with a fireman's pole 
and an optional slide attach- 
ment The unit is 4ft Sin high 
and costs £29.95. The slide 
would cost an extra- £26.95. 
Like all the Montrose prod- 
ucts, these ate both available

products this year is the baby

used indoors or out. It folds 
flat for - storage and costs

introduced -a toddler swing; 
which can be attached to a 
climbing - frame, -a swing 
frame, or even' a. handy 
branch. It has a safety bar and 
a strap- which, makes it almost 
impossible for a child to. 
wriggle out. and it has a nice 
high back which makes a chuG 
feel -secure. It is suitable for 
children ■ of nine months to 
■three years. It costs £14. _

duced a Teeter- for-T wo — an

that can be used indoors or out 
by- two to six-year-olds (£80) — 
and a play house, which is 
quite delightful with white

Sparkle summons summer 

Cynics may well fed that yet 
another English summer came 
and went with the recent 
warmer spell, . but the wine 
trade obviously consists of 
eternal- optimists. Every off- 
licence; wine warehouse and 
supermarket shelf is bristling 
with summer selections and 
“special summer buys". As 
usual not all of these summer 
offers will have turned out to 
be quite the bargain that the 
cost-conscious and discerning 
wine imbiber may have have 

But last week \ tasted a 
range of summer specials arid 
have come up with a handful 
of best buys. Sadly, a long hot 
English summer does not 
come free with every bottle, 
but my summery July selec- 
tion should at least cheer us all 

Majestic Wine Warehouses, 
as every regular reader of this 
column will know by now, is a 
favourite source of mine (and 
the rest of the country too) for 
inexpensive, yet exciting 
wines. Their list of more than

More comforting still for 
non-Majestic goers is that, in 
addition to the 15 wine ware- 
houses already in operation, 
three more are on the Way; in 
Guildford (this month), and 
Fulham and Islington (before 
the autumn). 

Majestic have launched into 
summer with a vengeance 
with two July wine tasting 
week-ends. The first, this 
weekend, is a California Inde-

well worth attending. Not only 
are a baker's dozen of Califor-

Full of charm . . .and sheep 

Ragley Hall is only sevoi mites from Stratford- 
npon-Ayon and 10 miles from Evesham. But 
the less weH-known Alcester. Is much nearer 
(just over a arile).and isr worth a visit. It’s a 
amall, anseHcoasdons old town wlthlsoma|iy

calls itself “Alster” or < ^CMster”. 

The' dinrch has a magnificat afatesfer

and 15 : cfelMiea. ft is an' Interesting bonding, 
half Gothic and half Classical and. all around 
it are ranges of handsome old houses — timber 
framed, brick and stucco side fej ride., all 
pleasingly iriegnlar and ’Jived-in. There is a 
town %»aii dating back to 1618, and the best tf 

many old bonses is the Malt Hbnse en the cor- 
ner of Malt Mill. Lane. Being just off the 
tourist routes, -Alcester has not been 
‘improved”; its chand is completely genuine. 

f lhrfbrtnhately it also offers littie to the 
weary' traveller but several town pubs, a wine 
bar .(Miranda’s) and the Tudor Rose Tea 
Rooms. For a full meal yon might do best to 
visit the Arrow Mill restaurant, opposite the 
gates of Ragley in the village of Arrow. (The 
Ragley cafoteria does good salads.) The village 
is black and white, strictly residen t ia l , with a 
pretty church set back in the fields. Sheep 
probably outnumber human souls.

Baked fish custards seem to 
be a peculiarly Scots institu-

with freshly caught fish. An- 
other traditional Scots fish 
dish is smoked finnan had- 
dock poached in milk and 
served in a soup plate with the 
hot salty rafik-and a poached 
egg on top.- The next recipe 
calls on both dishes to make 
individual savoury custards 
holding creamy flakes of 
smoked fish. They can be 
eaten hot, but are intended to 
be served cool with a salad of 
sliced waxy potatoes dressed 
with a mustardy vinaigrette.

One of the difficulties with 
gardening advice on radio or 
television, in magazines - and 
newspaper columns — is that it 
usually comes from profes- 
sional gardeners who, while 
they are immensely knowl- 
edgeable on the subject often 
seem to have no concept oflife 
in a domestic garden, where 
children, pets and wildlife 
compete with plants, for space 
and attention. These distrac- 
tions bring about a number of 
problems which may not be 
dealt with by the professional 
giver of gardening advice. 

The main problem with the 
gardening gurus is that they 
want to keep you busy the 
entire time. So this month, if 
you’re not feeding gloxinias, 
you should be earthing up 
potatoes, transplanting bulbs, 
taking half-ripe cuttings or 
removing strawberry foliage- 
When do you get time to lie in 
the sun and eqjoy the sights 
and scents? 

Do we really have to suffer 
through this kind of gardening 
Pilgrim "s Progress of infinite 
tasks and imponderable ad- 
versity. where joy is hard- 
won? Of course gardens need 
attention but, in practice, if 
enjoyment is combined with 
vigilance, 1 tasks can be 
minimized. • 

If you adopt a relaxed 
attitude, taking time off to 
walk among your plants, you 
are more likely to spot pest or 
disease problems early, when 
they can usually be dealt with 
quickly and easily. As you 
pass by, you can swoop on the 
odd weed, deadhead the roses 
and secure the waving stems, 
of climbers. 

You will savour the scent of 
roses on the morning air, of 
lavender robbed between the 
fingers. There will be toe 
pleasure of the firat npe 
raspberries, or .of finding that 
your lilies have unexpectedly 
doubled in number, or of 
discovering a new plant, 
gained from who knows where 
— - perhaps inadvertantly 
smuggled m .with some other, 
purchase. . 

Inspection will also, reveal 

both bfockfly and pinky rose 
aphids on your roses, and 
nasty wrinkles on toe silky 
leaves of toe cherry. These 
indicate toe presence of the 
persistently hungry chary 
aphids, which resemble shiny 

You will also do well, to spot; 
toe early nibblings of that 
unpleasant grey-green .cater-': 
pillar which adores Soloraon T s 
Seal and can defoliate it in a 
day or two, or a similar 
depredation of toe currant 
bushes which signifies ■ toe 
caterpillar of the magpie 
moto, a most beautiful but 
troublesomely voracious 

July is the lime to enjoy the 
gardens of others as well as 
your own. Many gardens, 
private and public, are- open- 
this month, giving- -you- an 
opportunity to - observe toe 
planting requirements, habit, 
spread and height ■ o f- pla nts 
you are considering growing' 

Take a notebook in which to 
note down toe names of new 
plants which capture your 
attention, or you- will inevita- 
bly have forgotten them by the 
time you get home. 

My list for this year includes 
a delightful pink linaria called 
Canon Went, and Salvia pat- 
ens with its rich blue flowers. I 
was reminded, by a trip to the 
Chelsea Physic Garden, • of 
Lavendula stoechas — an early 
lavender in which each flower 
is crowned with a cluster of 
bracts; making ' it Jook as 
though ah exotic fly is perch- 
ing there. 

.Also a delight from now oti 
aid the day lilies. Purists prefer 
the species, the 'yellow Hem- 
erocaitis citrina and the apn- 
cot-red Hemerocailis fidrn ; 
but there are numerous hybrid 
varieties for those with fancier 
tastes. These are plants worth 
considering for although — as 
toe name suggests - no single 
bloom lasts more than a day, 
they produce a succession ol 
blooms .lasting up to six or 
eight weeks.

There has never been much

Mahler’s own. 

It deserves slightly less dis- 
turbing singing. Brigitte 
Fassbaender is sadly shaky in 
her solo, and not well cast in 

the accompanying perfor- 
mance of the Lieder eines 
fahrenden Gesellen where she 
is too ripe. Rosalind Plowright 
is on surer form as the 
symphony’s soprano, and 
Bemd Weikl turns in neat 
performances of six early 
songs, chosen from the 1892 
volumes and effectively or- 
chestrated in Mahlerian style 
by Harold Bynts: ineffective* 
ness can be judged from the 
fact that Sinopoli finds unruly 
currents here as much as in the 
symphony. One mav conclude 

could be lumped together with 
Bruckner, for certainly his 
performance of the “Titan” 
reaches towards the same 
kinds of glorious affirmation 
and of loveableness that be 
finds in his contemporary

Nond of his famous Bach interpre- . 

rations is included here, though there 
is a massive, uncompromisingly solid 
account of Mozart’s Fantasia and 
Fugue, K394. Instead the emphasis is 
on Beethoven, with idiosyncratic 
readings - of the last three piano 
sonatas, and vivid performances of 
Concertos Nos 1 and 2. The recording 
of No 1. with the Columbia Orchestra 
under Golschmann, has become a 
classic urgent and impulsive, with 
Gould's passage work matching the 
trumpets and drums for rhythmic 

“I can scarcely hope to conceal the 
fact that my cadenzas are hardly in 
pure Beethoven style”, wrote Gould 
in his entertaining sleeve notes. That 
is certainly true, but -these baroque- 

.chromatic -inventions come like . a 
fresfr breeze from an age less obsessed 
with uniformity and “authentic” 
nyle. :s ■ • m ;-\ -\ V. - 

/’ The mono recording of therConoer-: 

:-to No 2 has never been issued before. 
Listening to the Academic Symphony 
Orchestra of Leningrad, one can 

understand why. But Gould's first 
entry rakes the game into an altogeth- 
er more dangerous and elemental 
phase, with the tempo audaciously 
-varied and the piano conjuring up 
more excitingly “orchestral" colour 
than this orchestra could ever 

Turning from this to Claudio 
Arrau’s sedate new recording of the 
Piano Concerto No 5, the“Emperor”, 
is like taking a tranquilliser. The 
measured progress will not be to 
everyone's taste, but it does allow 
Arrau the space to bring his custom- 
ary poetic insights to bear, and Colin 
Davis elicits some rich sounds from 
the Dresden players. The piano's 
prominence in the balance is far from 
natural, however. 

There is more passion, surprising- 
ly, in Alfred Brendd’s performances 
of the two Beethoven sonatas— boih.- 
live recordings made by the BBC at 
his superb 1982/3 Beethoven cycle in 
the Queen Elizabeth HalL I was 
struck by the big dynamic range, the 

intense delivery of the Adagio, and 
the unfaultable clarity of thought and 
expression in this reading of the . 
“Hammerklavier". There is not a 
dead patch in it, nor (as far as one 
could hear) a single technical slip. 
The performance of Op 78 is equally 
rewarding, particularly in the exuber- 
ant second movement, where Brendel 
points up the rhythms and makes 
something Schumannesque of it. 

Finally to Mitsuko Uchida, whose 
own recent Queen Elizabeth Hall 1 
cycle was of Mozart concertos. As it 
progressed she recorded each work 
with the English Chamber Orchestra, i 
and the fruits are well worth savour- 
ing. The crystalline, “filtered" quality 
of ,the piano- sound, matched by < 
-^-absolutely even passagework and a 1 
~ dgiipaie, dancing style, are the hall- ' 
_ ‘ marks here - though I fancy that the 
presence of Jeffrey Tate (there

Richard Morrison 

The invention of chess has 
been variously ascribed to 
JaphethShem, King Solomon, 
Hermes. Aristotle and a Man- 
darin called Han-Sing. Proba- 
bly it was none of these, but 
chess is the.ofdest board game 
still universally played. 

It makes a satisfying irony, 
then, that it is now so popular 
with the young, and particu- 
larly with school children. 
Next week's Times British 
Schools Chess Championship, 
organized jointly by The 
Times and the British Chess 
Federation, is a showcase for 
the best in team chess. 

“It is the pre-eminent 
school chess competition in 
the world” said Paul BuswelL 
secretary of the British Chess 
Federation. “As an event it is 
analagous with the FA Cup 
. Final in soccer — even if they, 
are not playing the rest of the 
world is watching." 

Each of the four teams who 
have survived the qualifying 
rounds has six members, aged 
from 11 to 18. John 
Merriman, aged 1 1 and play- 
ing for Blue Coat School, 
Liverpool, is the youngest boy 
ever to rake pan in the 20- 
year-old tournament. “I cer- 
tainly believe he has the 
potential to be a Grand 
Master”, says Ken Champion, 
who coaches the team. “I 
thought very carefully about 
bringing him down to London 
because of his age L .but_we 
must have him if we 
build our strongest team.” 

The best player in the Blue 
Coat team is Philip Leeson, 
now 1 7, who was the youngest 
participant the last time the 
school made it to the 
tournament's semi-final stage 
four years ago. 

This time the school is up 
against three other all-boy 
teams — from Colchester Roy- 
al Grammar School, Plym- 
outh" College. and . the 
Methodist College, Belfast 

Dave Sing, the 16-year-old 
captain of Colchester, and his 
yopunger ' brother Roy (14) 
have a growing reputation. 
But the team from Belfast 
under the direction of Brian 
Thorpe, may be the dark 

. horses. Captained by Kieran 
Greer, an 18-year-old and a 
member of the All Ireland 
team, they had to win two of 
their qualifying rounds by. 
jfiaying over the telephone; yet 
ihey'managed id beal one- 
time favourites Queen Mary’s 
Grammar School. Wallsend. 

Skippering the Plymouth, 
side — runners-up two years 
ago — is Christopher Butt a 
17-year-old who has been 
cautiously earmarked by 
Mitchell Taylor, the tourna- 
ment organizer, as perhaps 
this year’s best individual 

“The trouble is that the 
contest comes immediately 
after examinations”. 
Christoper says, “which 
means that one can’t play as 
often as one would like in 
-order to prepare. Next, year 
will be my A Level year and I 
will have to think very hard 
' about whether to enter chess 
competitions then." 

His sights are set firmly on a 
career in the law, and Grand

John Huston had the luck to launch 
hiscareer as a director with the sort of 
project that any young film maker 
must dream about, and The Maltese 
Falcon (BBC2, tomorrow, 1 1,05 pro- 
1250 am) has rightly passed into 
cinema history as one of the supreme 
achievements of 1940s film noir. 

Curiously, it was the third screen 
version of Dashiell Hammett’s pri- 
vate eye thriller, but such was its 
impact that no one besides the 
cinema buffs remembers the previous 
two. It is that rare example of a 
remake bettering the original. 

it started as just another product of 
the Warner Brothers assembly line, 
assigned, with some trepidation, to 
the youngHuston who had joined the 




studio three years earlier as a writer. 

. Huston had, in fact, written the script 
for The Maltese Falcon . but only after 
some badgering did he get to direct iL 

The result was the turning of a 
potentially routine thriller into cine- 
matic gold, thanks to happy combina- 
tion of Huston's writing and 
directing, superbly atmospheric black 
and white camerawork by Arthur 
Edeson and a which every face 
was a perfect fit. ’ 

- Hammett's laconic private eye, 
Sam Spade, is played, definitively, by.. 
Humphrey Bogan; tough, cynical. 

By Peter Waymark 

bringing a rough brand of integrity to 
a nasty world. His chief antagonist is 
Mary Aston film noir’s archetypal 
scheming wo/nan, and there is a 
marvellous assortment of supporting 
players from the outsize Sydney 
Greensireet (making his film debut at 
the age of 61) and that eternal fell- 
guy, Elisha Cook jun. 

What matters least about The 
Maltese Falcon is the plot, a convo- 
luted affair concerning the quest for a 
black statuette. What matters a lot is 
Huston's. unobtrusive^ but perf ectly 
paced, direction, which allows his 
abrasive dialogue to' make its own 
point The Maltese Falcon perfectly 
illustrates the dictum of another 
Hollywood pro, Howard Hawks, that 

a good director fs someone, whorkeeps ' 
out of the way. 

Eighty in August Huston has been ! 
directing, but not always keeping out * 
of the way, ever since. Only last year, 
when we thought the old boy was ! 
starting to lose his grip, he came back 
triumphantly with Prizzi’s Honour. 
Who knows what more this big. 
flamboyant hulk of a man may yet 
have to offer. 

After The Maltese Falcon, BBC2’s 
Huston retrospective continues with 
The Red Badge of Courage (Mon. 
5. fO-7.15 pm) and The Misfits (Fri, 6-~

T o people who know 
him chiefly as the co- 
writer of Yes. Minis- 
ler, Jonathan Lynn’s 
arrival at the Na- 
tional Theatre will come as 
something of a surprise. Hav- 
ing already directed a Feydeau 
force for them, he was invited 
by Peter Hall to form a new 
group of NT actors to give a 
sequence of three plays. The 
second surprise is his choice of

former writer of 
Yes, Minister to 
the South Bank?

had his reasons 

plays — two little-known hits 
from Broadway's past and one 
classic, neglected English 
force. The Magistrate. “I be- 
lieve in a good night out”, he 
says, explaining his policy 
simply: **! want people to feel 
entertained and have a good 
laugh.” • 

These were • reassuring 
words to hear bouncing off the 
National Theatre concrete. 
Backstage at the NT the 
impression is of visiting a 
prison. After being signed in 
and looked over, one is led to 
an interview cell of extreme 
lugubriousness, furnished 
only with old paper cups. A 
previous occupant had passed 
his time arranging the drawing 
pins on the notice board into a 
cry for help: “Brian where are 
you?” But Jonathan Lynn, 
after being led in by a warder, 
seemed to be enjoying his 
porridge. A roly-poly 
Ustinovian figure, whh lips 
that curl like those of atten- 
dant cherubs in lascivious Old 
Masters, he looks as though be 
might introduce a note of 
revelry between these sad. 
forbidding walls. 

What had persuaded him to 
come inside? “Oh. the day 
that Peter Hall rang, it seemed 
■like a good idea. I do whatever 
comes along that seems a good 
idea at the time. People have 
given me a great sense of 
support. We're a mixed bunch 
of directors — Peter Wood. 
Richard Eyre. David Hare. 
Peter Gill — and now me." He 
sounded surprised at the com- 
pany in which he found

Neither title will ring -many 
bells among English audi- 
ences. although Michael 
Redgrave played in 
Javohowskv in London in 

1945. The play is set during 
the collapse of France in 1940, 
where all its characters are 
fugitives before the German 
advance. Playwright Franz 
Werfel was one of them in real 

“It's a warm, optimistic 
play with something genuinely 
touching to say about human 
relationships” says Lynn. Af- 
ter Elia Kazan's successful 
production in J944, Holly- 
wood intervened with a screen 
version with Danny Kaye. Me 
and the Colonel . and the play 
was forgotten. Jonathan Lynn 
heard that it was for superior 
to the film, tracked it down, 
read it and was delighted. At 
its first showing it was highly 
topical, with the Nazi occupa- 
tion fresh in everyone's mind. 
Now it has to be seen whether 
it transcends its period. 

To play the colonel. Lynn 
turned, not unnaturally, to 
Nigel Hawthorne who made 
ihc character of the hide- 
bound mandarin Sir Hum- 
phrey Appleby in Yes. 
.I/fVi/jrrrso much his own. It is 
Hawthorne’s first part for the 
NT and he will follow it in the 
lead of The Magistrate 

The idea for the Whitehall 
saga occurred to Lynn's part- 

ner. Antony Jay. They had 
met while wriiirig manage- 
ment training films. 

Lynn did not respond to toe 
idea at first “I had written 
about 50 situation comedies 
for television and didn't want 
to write another one ever 
again.” But after some years 
he was more receptive when 
Jay mentioned the unpromis- 
ing idea once more. In a sense 
he points out. Yes. Minister is 
a training film for politicians, 
just as Fawhy Towers can be 
seen as a training film about 
the problems of hotel 

The success of Yes. Minister 
and its best-selling books-of- 
th e-series rather eclipsed Jon- 
athan Lynn's earlier career as 
an actor. In toe 1 970s be was 
seldom off the screen as actor- 
scriptwriter in series such as 
Doctor in the House and its 
sequel. He had begun his 
acting career in the Cambridge 
Footlights revue, playing the 
drums, but for the New York 
run. he was promoted to 
playing in toe sketches. .

After the first Easter Day. the 

faithful shared the death and 
resurrection of Christ. After 
the trauma of his death and 
the triumph of his resurrec- 
tion. they walked in newness 
of life and shared in the Spirit. 
Their worship was dominated 
by thanksgiving and hope. 

Their practical living and 
corporate decisions rested on 
their astonishing experience 
grounded in Christ- They 
experienced “new life” both in 
worship and in the way they 
ordered their affairs. 

The confidence, courage 
and sheer nerve of the first 
generations of Christians, 
scattered amongst different 
cultures and nationalities, 
flowed from what God had 
achieved on the cross and the 
resurrection. God had 
changed things. Carrying the 
cross for them meant trying to 
change the future. 

Of all the practical decisions 
which confronted the faithful, 
none was more difficult that 
the change of attitude and 
belief involved in admitting 
Gentiles. If this crucial choice 
had gone wrong, the Church 
might still have been a signifi- 
cant body within Judaism, but 
would never have become 
worldwide. More seriously, it 
would have disobeyed the 
promptings of the Holy Spirit 

But “new life” led to un- 
precedented derisions. The 
Book of Acts describes the 
conversion of the gentile, Cor- 
nelius, and the decisions 
which, after much turmoil, 
flowed from this. Peter acted 
first He obeyed God's call to 
baptise Cornelius, a difficult 
derision involving much re- 
flection and discussion. 
Dreams revealed his self-ques- 
tioning. Afterwards, what he 

had done was declared allowa- 
ble by a synod. 

The author of the Acts, in 
telling the story of the conver- 
sion of Cornelius, emphasized 
to the reader that it was God 
who brought about this turn- 
ing point (see Professor 
Haenschen's magisterial com- 
mentary, The Acts of the 
Apostles). The Gospel re- 
quired breaking rules and 
being prepared to go on 
breaking the rules. 

The baptism of Comelins, a 
gentile, was not an isolated 
case, but a fundamental turn- 
ing point, and only later did 
the. no doubt shocked, 11 
Apostles accept the change. 
Only by facing this could the 
European gentile Church be 

The synod described in 
Chapter 15 accepted that what 
had already happened was 
done in obedience to God. But 
before that could take place, 
there was still argument be- 
tween Paul and Peter, who 
appears to have been “got ax” 
by more hesitant fellow 

Paul tells us in his Letter to 
the Galatians that he opposed 
Peter to the face. Had he lost 
his nerve, the Church would 
have remained Jewish. Paul 
faced anger, his own and his 
opponents, but be “discerned 
the Spirit” and opened the 
Church to the world. 

Paul, the Apostle of the 
gentiles, saw that the Church 
was faced by great challenges: 
the divisions between Jews 
and gentiles, between slaves 
and free men, between men 
and women. The fire! was 
dealt with by the first genera- 
tions of Christians. The sec- 
ond had to wait for William 
Wilberforce and ihe third is 

now faring the churches of our 

In successive centuries, 
Christians have found it hard 
to manage change. In the 
Middle Ages, the life of St‘ 
Francis and the founding of 
his order was a challenge to 
what was normal. 

More recently, the restora- 
tion of religious orders in 
Anglicanism and many of the 
pioneering achievements of 
the evangelicals and the Ox- 
ford Movement first had to be 
put into practice in parishes 
and then accepted by the 
Church as a whole. The 
Church of South India had 
first to unite and was after- 
wards recognized. 

Today, the Church of En- 
gland must decide about or- 
daining women. Should those 
women, who believe they 
have a vocation to the priest- 
hood, be tested by the Church, 
as men are? It is no accident 
that the first of the 750 
women, who are priests in the 
Anglican Communion, was 
ordained by Bishop R-O. Hall 
in dangerous, war-tom China. 

Only gradually did the 
provinces of the United States 
of America, Canada. New 
Zealand and elsewhere resolve 
to ordain women after discus- 
sion in synods. That is an 
instance of the “Cornelius 
principle”: listening to God, 
considering the requirements 
of the cross and resurrection, 
“new life”, then praxis, then

Syrian show of 
armed force on 

Beirut streets 

From Robert Fisk, Beirut 

Steel-helmeted Syrian 
troops In full uniform ' pa- 
trolled the streets of west 
Beirut yesterday for the .first 
time since the Syrian Army's 
evacuation of the city under 
Israeli.siege in 1982. 

The symbolic appearance of 
the soldiers — so far only 
about 50 in number — repre- 
sents the most serious military 
intervention by the Syrians 
since they first tried to imple- 
ment “security" plans for 
Beirut two years ago. 

Thousands of uniformed 
Syrian troops entered Beirut 
in 1976 to bring an end to the 
civil war here, driving in tanks 
and armoured personnel carri- 
ers into the city under an Arab 
' League mandate. 

No international mandate— 
not even a Lebanese one — 
appears to have been obtained 
for this new. though very 
limited, military involvement 
in Beirut although Lebanese 
ministers have for months 
been urging the Syrian Gov- 
ernment to send troops into 
west Beirut to wrest control of 
the streets from the Muslim 

Syrian soldiers stood . on 
checkpoint duty in Bliss Street 
near the American University 
- one of the locations often 
used in the past for kidnap- 
ping foreigners — while Syrian 
troops could be seen during 
the- afternoon travelling the 
streets of the dty in a white 
estate car. 

“1 saw four of them, kitted 
out in steel helmets" and 
holding Kalashnikov rifles, 
riding through nie Baalbek in 
a white estate car driven by a 
plain clothes Syrian ’ security 
man. The car — together with- 
an other vehicle containing 
armed Syrians — bore Syrian 
registration plates. 

The troops were not only 
easily identifiable; they were 
clearly meant to be seen. 
Muslim militiamen who 
refuse to leave the streets will 
now face Syria's anger. 

just in case the point had 
been missed. Brigadier- Gen- 
eral Ghazi Kenaaii, the head 
of Syrian military intelligence, 
has arrived tn Beirut '■ aid- 
announced his intention of 
staying until" the " hew 
“security" plan — involving 
the closing of militia offices — 
has been fully implemented. 

Like all such plans, howev- 
er, it has more than one 
purpose. If the sight of heavi- 
ly-armed Syrian troops serves 
to discourage the Muslim 
militias of west Beirut, it 
presents an equally potent 
message to the Phalangists 

For six months now, the 
Christian militias have op- 
posed Syria's plans for Leba- 
non — President Amin 
Gemayel has himself support-

Mr Norman Tebbit yester- 
day queried whether the BBC . 
should ban pop stars known to 
be on drugs (Philip Webster 
writes). J

ops. cleigy and laity. 

If it receives less than 67 per 
cent in any of the three houses 
today, it will be killed, and 
with it most of the hopes of 
those wanting the Church of 
England itself to ordain wom- 

en priests. 

Mr Tebbit said: “There are 
a good many people in the pop 
scene who take drugs. 1 think 
we are probably more aware of 1 
them because they are in the 
pnblic eye but I'm very sad to 
say that there are a lot of other 
people who give had examples 1 
one way or another." 

He then asked: “Should the 
BBC be saying that they will 
not feature pop stars who are" 
known to be on drags? I do not 
know bow people would react 
to that". 

for a final decision by Mr 
Geoffrey Dear, the Chief Con- 

West Midlands Police are to 
establish an elite, frill-time 
firearms squad in the after- 
math of the Sh orthouse trage- 
dy and research is being con- 
ducted. to establish whether 
.firearms officers can be sub-- 
jected to psychological tests to 
ensure their suitability for 
armed operations. 

Supl Burton said the verdict 
supported all firearms officers 
who feared they could find' 
themselves in the same posi- 
tion as PC Chester. 

He said: “His ordeal is not 
yet over. He is still suspended 
on frill pay and a decision on 

his reinstatement has still to 
be taken, but every officer in 
the West Midlands and na- 
tionally will be delighted with 
the result. It has been a terrible 
. endurance for PC Chester and 
a terrible . tragedy for the 
Sh orthouse famUy." - • • 

PC Chester was.accused by 
■ the prosecuttohdf gross-negli- 
gence in killing The boy as he 
searched a children's bedroom 
at the Shorthouse family mai- 
sonette in King's Norton, 
Birmingham, during a police 
raid last August 
The armed policemen were 
hunting for three men — in- 
cluding the boy's father — who 
had taken part in a restaurant 
robbery in Wales two days 
earlier. Mr John Shorthouse, 
aged 26, is now serving a five- 
year sentence for that crime. 

The ■ prosecution claimed 
the tragedy was a “classic case 
of manslaughter" and alleged 
that PC Chester had fired his 
.38 Smith Si Wesson revolver 
intentionally, by instinct that 
bis training required him to 
do, when the boy moved on 

the bed and startled him. 

The defence claimed the 
shooting was a terrible acci- 
dent and that PC Chester bad 
been a victim of inadequate 
preparation for -die -raid be- 
cause the armed "officers in- 
volved had hot been told that 
children might be 'in the 
maisonette. • - ' , 

PC Chester, a policeman for 
16 years, of Leek Wooton,! 
Warwickshire, claimed in.j 
court that be did not realize 
the boy was asleep beneath a 
blanket and was not even 
aware that his revolver bad 
gone off until he heard a moan 
and found the boy with a 
bullet bole through the T-shirt 
he was wearing. 

He said the accident must 
have happened while he .‘was 
getting .to- his feet m a narrow 
space after searching beneath 
the boy’s bed. in. his cumber- 
some body armour. 

The constable was de- 
scribed as the “ideal, level- 
headed" marksman by his col- 
leagues in -the firearms unit.

Mr Jacques de Larosierc, 
the managing director of the 
International Monetary Fund, 
echoed these hopes at a Unit- 
ed Nations meeting in 

. .J F M A M J J .A S O N D.J F M A M.J 

“The favourable outlook for 
prices and a combination of 
prudent fiscal .policies and 
moderate rates of money ex- 
pansion should permit the 
desirable lowering of interest 
rates to continue," be said. 

Market hopes have revived 
in -spite of : ihe Bank of 
England's extremely cautious 
approach to- interest-rate cuts, 
after- three large monthly in- 
creases in the sterling M3 
measure of the money supply. 

City analysts expect a rise of 
e tween 0.5 and 1 per cent in 

between 0.5 and 1 per cent in 
sterling M3 in the June bank- 

ing month, when the figures 
are released on Tuesday. This 
would reduce the 12 -month 
growth rale from 19.5 percent 
in May, to 18 per cent or less 
in June. 

A stronger reason for hopes 
of lower rates in Britain comes 
with the prospect of reduc- 
tions elsewhere. Yesterday, 
the dollar continued to slide, 
against ihe yen in particular. 

Despite thin markets, with 
the independence Day holi- 
day in the ‘US. the Bank of 
Japan was unable, despite 
substantial intervention in Far 
Eastern trading, to stop the 
dollar from falling against lhe 

The dollar closed near its 
post-war low at 160.60, com- 

pared with 161.40 at the 
previous dose. Currency deal- 
ers expect the Bank of Japan 
to stop intervening after the 
Japanese elections - lo both 
houses of the Diet — on 
Sunday. Instead, it is thought 
there will a reduction in the 
Japanese discount rate, to 
attempt lo diven dollar weak- 
ness from the yen to the mark. 
The Bundesbank indicated an 
unwillingness to reduce inter- 
est rates after its fortnightly 
council meeting on Thursday. 

: - Yesterday, the . Mitsubishi 
Research Institute predicted 
weak growth for the Japanese 
economy in this fiscal year. 
Growth is forecast at just 1.8 
per cent in fiscal 1986, which 
began in April, while the yen- 

dollar rate is expected to move 
to 155. 

There is also strong pressure 
on the US Federal Reserve cut the discount rate, 
amid continued signs of weak- 
ness in the US economy. 

In Britain, there is some 
difference in emphasis be- 
tween the Bank of England 
and the Treasury on monetary 

The Chancellor of the Ex- 
chequer, Mr Nigel Lawson, 
has brought attention to the 
strength of sterling this year, 
dcspiie the sharp fall in oil 
prices. He has also pointed to 
the performance of narrow 
money. M0, with a rate of 
increase towards the lower 
end of its 2 to 6 per cent target 

The Bank of England has 
expressed concern about the 
build-up of liquidity in the 
economy with the strong rise 
in sterling M3, and also about 
less satisfactory indicators of 
inflation such as unit wage 
and salary costs. 

Thefe was no obvious inter- ; 
est rate' hint In the- Bank's 
money market dealing opera- 
tions yesterday. It -relieved 
£32 r million of the money 
market shortage through out- 
right bank bill purchases and 
£535 million by means of a gilt 
sale and repurchase at rates 
between and 10*32 per cent

Lloyds Bank admitted yes- 
terday that It will have to ask 
the City Takeover Panel foF a 
special dispensation to extend 
the timetable of its bid for 
Standard Chartered as a resnlt 
of the need to satisfy US 
hanking legislation. Standard 
Chartered’s adviser, J Henry 
.Schroder Wagg, will oppose 
the move.

duced to stop endless new"

Thereafter, .Lloyds woald

and a farther 21 days to pay 
for the Standard Chartered 
shares, should .its bid succeed. 

The US Federal Reserve 
. Board may not rale on Lloyds' 
takeover of Standard Chart- 
ered’s American . interests, 
particularly the Union Bank of 
California, until July 16. This 
would not pose a great prob- 
lem, provided they agree, but, 
under American law, it would 
be illegal for Lloyds to bay the 
Standard shares for another 
30 days to allow the Justice 
Department to challenge, the 
acquisition on competitive

Lloyds will not ask the 
Panel for a dispensation until 
after the July 12 deadline, 

which remains tire last date for 
acceptances to decide whether 
the bid will succeed. It intends 
to stick to tire final date for 
payment to Standard Char- 
tered shareholders, bat wants 
to delay tire date for meeting 
all other conditions. 

Mr Brian Pitman, Lloyds* 
chief executive, said yesterday 
that the problem, long identi- 
fied by Standard Chartered, 

. arose .because of the clash of 
-rales -between two different 
regulatory authorities in dif- 
ferent countries, one safer 
guarding shareholders and tire 
other depositors, and that it 
would lie unreasonable for 
Standard to challenge tire 
verdict of shareholders sbould 
Lloyds win. 

Standard Chartered intends 
to challenge Lloyds’ request in i 
advance of the shareholders' 
dedsioa, however, seeking a 
ruling in principle by the 
Panel. Mr Michael 
McWilliam, Standard's man- 
aging director, said Lloyds I 
sbould stick to the rales and 
that early- delays in seeking 
US_ approval were 
symptomatyic of Lloyds’ lack 
of preparation and thought 
about its takeover. “The panel 
rating is a technical matter," 
Mr - McWilliam acknowl- 

Lloyds says it has gone 
through the American proce- 
dure quickly, was confident 
that it answered all the points 
the Fed had raised, and that 
the Californian authorities 
had agreed to accept the 
takeover as soon as federal 
approval had been granted. 

The consultative document, 
however, imposes a number of 
restrictions on the use of the 
newly-available instruments 
with the aim of seeing them 
used as hedging instruments 
.and not to gear. up funds.

Investors switch off 
over Peacock view 

By Lawrence Lever 

Far-reaching proposals giv- 
ing unit trust companies great- 
er flexibility in the 
management of iheir funds are 
likely to trigger a wave of new 
unit trusts as well as alter the 
way in which trusts are sold to 
the public. 

The proposals are contained 
in a consultative document on 
the- regulation- pfrmirinistsr 

- due' To be published by the 
E)epartmeht. of Trade and 
Industry this month'. 

■; . ; The . "proposals open the 

- door' to the unit uusi industry 
' to engage in currency hedging. 

which at the moment is limit- 
ed to hedging supported by 
back-to-back loans The DTI 
is suggesting that unit trusts 
should be allowed to use 
foreign exchange contracts 
currency futures and financial 

Moreover, financial futures 
wj}j also be available to unit 
trust managers, as will the 
facility to writeput options on 
the traded option market 

Industry sources say that a 
number of unit irust groups 
are already planning new 
trusts and restructuring their 
marketing campaigns to take 
advantage of the anticipated ( 
liberalization of unit trust I

When the Government considers' ; 
dramatic initiatives in Britain's tele- 
vision industry, it would do well to- 
consider City reaction to the Peacock 
report — a studied yawn. Shares in 
television companies were virtually 
unchanged. This can hardly be pul 
down lo the leaking of the report, 
since this produced little reaction 
either. It is however, one indication of 
the likelihood of action, since inves- 
tors have learned the hard way that al- 
most any change or novelty is bad for 
them. ‘ 

History* suggests that new develop-, 
ments in this neld prove unprofitable, 
as were most television contracting 
companies in the early days. As the 
problems are sorted out and bright 
ideas dropped, so investors become 
more interested. But if they become 
too interested, government is liable to 
change the tax system. 

At the moment, the television 
contracting sector is buoyant thanks 
to booming advertising revenues. The 
launch of Thames has . been a great 
success and early reactions to the 
flotation of TV-am are favourable. 
The report, could have changed alt . . 
this. Advertising on BBC* .while good 
for advertising agents, would- have 
knocked commercial TV shares hard, 
since even a short-term loss of 10 to 1 5 
per cent of revenue would have 
transformed their present cosy 

Instead, companies face the 
possibility at some future date of a 
tender auction for franchises. How 
this would relate to the levy or how 
the Independent Broadcasting 
Authority would interpret its licence 
to refuse the highest bidder is unclear. 
The present leadership of the IBA 
seems more sympathetic to stability, 
almost a prerequisite for any market 
enthusiasm for minor contractors. 
And here, the report scores something 
of a plus. Since there is to be a delay, 
perhaps until after the next election, 
before major decisions are taken, 
there is a strong chance that the 
renewal or change of franchises will be 
postponed from 1989. Adding a 
couple of years onto franchise life is by 
no means unprecedented. In thi&.case, . 
'if would seem necessary unless a new 
framework is fixed- in t fher .next . AS - - 
months. " * ' ... 

. The City would also i>e chary of 
• bold new technological developments.- 
The cable TV hype of aL-TeiVyears-agd: . 
is still remembered. The hope that 
consumer demand for entertainment 
would pay for interactive cabling of 
Britain fell foul of free ITV and the 
unavoidably of the licence fee. 
From the marketing point of view, 
cable has given way to satellite 
television. Any renewed interest in 
cabling by British Telecom or Cable & 
Wireless would depend as much. on 
interest rates and the tax regime as on 
thfc market. The abolition of 100 per 
cent first-year investment allowances 
has not helped. In any case, Ofte! has 
been looking to local cable networks 
as a third force in telecomm un Tea tions 

•-rather than to reinforce the present 
duopoly there. 

' City analysts believe that the City 
would rally round to finance a 
privatized Radio i and 2. But this is 
unlikely to generate much excitement 
Even the more distant television 
stations are too small to bother big 
investors. Added to the pavlovian 
aversion to risk and novelty, -this 
suggests that the brave new long-term 
developments envisaged by Peacock 
would have to be undertaken by the 
. largest national or, international 
companies , rather than from grass 
roots subscription to new enterprises.

The Chancellor’s failure to achieve 
the modem miracle of turning water 
into pre-election lax cuts is more of a 
political embarrassment than an eco- 
nomic one, at least in the short-term. 
It is certainly possible for the Govern- 
ment to achieve £4.75 billion of asset 
sales annually from now until .1 988- 
89, even if it means using up most of 
the best shots. . . . 

.7 Ignoring tfieT riistee Savings Banks, 
; which" da no! generate, privatization 
procQds, the schedule' '.starts-'' in 
November with British Gas, set to 
’bring in a net £5-6 billion, probably 
spread over three years. British Air- 
ways, worth -£ 1 - billion, may follow 
early next year, then Rolls-Royce, the 
British Airports Authority and the 
National Bus Company, worth about 
£1.3 billion in total. 

Adding in a bit for any parts of 
British Steel which may find a buyer, 
this gives a total of up to £8.5 billion. 
The third payment on British 
Telecom shares has already generated 
£2 billion in the current fisc&Lyear, 
pushing the prospective total up to 
£10.5 billion, some £4 billion short of 
the p}annefr.£4. 75 billion a year over 
three years. 

Fortunately, help is at hand. The 
Chancellor's share portfolio includes a 
£3.1 billion holding in British Petro- 
leum which can be sold off at any 
time. And. as is often forgotten, there 
is plenty more mileage left in British

of British Telecom, worth a little over

the privatization programme because 
of the lack of the water authorities' 

There is a longer term difficulty, if 
Thursday's announcement on the 
water authorities means, not a one or 
two-year delay, but indefinite 
postponement. New-style managers, 
such as Roy Watts of Thames Water, 
might drift ^ away discouraged. 

- Early privatization would 7 have 
allowed die investment programmes

outside the public sector borrowing 
requirement. That may no longer be

Wall Street dosed for Independence Day 

(AP-Dow Jones) — US Trea- 
sury securities rose as much at 
18/32 point from late New 
York levels on Japanese buy- 
ing, but the market has effec- 
tively shut down in Europe in 
line with the US markets' 

-.Dealers said, the market hi 
Tokyo was basically catching 
iip with the Chicago futures 
market, following die early 

dosing ob Thursday of the 
Treasury market in New York. 

The biggest bullish factor 
remained the news that US 
non-fann payrofts fell by 
89.000 in June. 

The brokers stopped quot- 
ing screen prices when Tokyo 
closed, with the benchmark 
Treasury 7% per cent bonds 
doe 2016 ending 20/12 points 
higher there at 101 .16/32.

so much a takeover bid. more 
a management coup. It does 
not really maner what’ his 
quoted ' Trahwood company 
docs-; (If makes women’s

of its sharesrhe offers for each

In opinion poll terms, Mr 
Oppenbeim asked Aitken 
shareholders: “Are you satis- 
lied with your present 

So ar more than half have 
answered, “no" and judging 
by the ease with which Mr 
Oppenheim's agents swept 
into the market to pick up 
stock on Wednesday, there 
should be more acceptances 

However, that seems to 
have been the. easiest part Of 
the exercise.; Ajtken Hume is 
still' telling shareholders not 
to accept the? bid on the 
grounds that its NSR Ameri- 
can fund management group, 
the jewel in its rather tar- 
nished crown, would lose all 
its business if control 
changed hands. 

Mr Oppenheim. who 
maintains there would not be 
a change of control because 
Aitken shareholders would 
end up with 91 per cent of 
Tran wood, is off to New 
York next week to persuade 
fsISR’s -independent directors 
: lhai'he im fit and proper man . 
to conubl their company: 

If Mr Oppenheim fails' to. 
sway the directors, then- the 
deal is off and Aitken will 
have escaped. But the Aitken 
board would be unwise to 
break out the champagne too 
quickly. Its defence has been 
a series of blunders and 
bungles that can hardly in- 
spire confidence 

The confessional-type de- 
fence document which per- 
versely boasted of huge losses

Aitken also seemed (airly 
sure that a white knight 
would emerge 

If the NSR factor does 
cause the Tran wood bid to 
fail. Aitken will be left with

effectively bid-proof with a

Shares of STC the telecom- 
munications and. computer, 
group, :pui in a late run 
yesterday climbing ' lOp to 
I66p — just 2p shy of their- 
high — on speculation that 
ITT was about to sell its 
remaining holding in the 

ITT, which is the world’s 
biggest publicly quoted com- 
pany. still owns 131.02 mil- 
lion shares (24 per cent) in 
STC worth an estimated £217 
million. But ITT has been 
steadily reducing its holding in 
the company since 1982. 

Last night the stock market 
was . buzzing with, rumours 
that ITT had found a single 
buyer ..for the .entire stake 
outside the market and that an 
anno uncement would be 
made" 'shortry.'ThiS"red'"tO 
.speculation that a full bid Jar 
STC may be on the way. 

Earlier this week ITT an- 
nounced that it had teamed up 
with the French state owned 
telecommunications group 
Compagnie Francaise 
d'EIectricitie to form a joint 
European telecommunica- 
tions group which will rank 
second in the world. 

Dealers claim that the pro- 
ceeds from the sale of the STC 
deal would help to fin ance the - 
■ costs of the deal with CFE; 

* * Buf lait nigh! a spokesman ' 
for ITT iir- Brussels told The 
Times that he had no knowl- 
edge of any such moves to sell 
the STC holding. 

The rest of the equity spent 
a lacklustre session with Wim- 
bledon and Henly still high on 
the agendas of most investors 
wishing to make the most of 
the fine weather. 

Few investors were willing 
to open new positions ahead 
of another possible cut in bank 
base rates and with Wall Street ' 
closed for -the day turnover 
was d,own jo a trickle.

America put the Hot into DogJ

Meeting the creditors: Mr Rosen is far left, Mr Cooper second from right Far right The deeply disappointed Mr Bennett an unsecured creditor 

How Spanish dreams were dashed 

Holiday dreams can be dan- 
gerous and expensive. They 
cost John and Elaine Bennett 
more than £S3,000 when they 
fell in love with the idea of a 
holiday villa on the Costa del 

The Bennetts approached a 
company trading as M&M 
Spanish Homes, winch was 
offering plots and the facility 
to build your own property 
near the popular and populous 
resort of Marbella in Spain. 

The Bennetts found the 
brochure attractive and the 
promises seductive, but today 
they are deeply disappointed. 

M&M is now in Liquidation, 
submerged beneath a raft of 
bad debts, and Mr Bennett 
claims that the property he 
was promised “might as well 
be in Siberia or the Sahara — 
it's a roof and four walls over 
which we have no title”. 

This is disputed by the 
company. One director says. 
Mr Bennett “has perfect titled 
Thematter is being fought out . 
between the lawyers. 

The two working directors 
of M&M Spanish Homes are 
Gerald Rosen and Paul Coo- 
per, whose wives were origi- 
nally the only directors until 
early last month, well after the 
application to put M&M into 

per was a co-director of one 

The way M&M Spanish 
Homes operated and the legal 
position of money paid to it 
appeared, according to one 
accountant at the creditors' 
meeting, “completely 
unclear”, but its commercial 
activities seemed quite 

‘Expert advice on 
investment projects’ 

M&M's brochure offers a 
range of services, from “expert 
advice on any investment 
project” to help on the techni- 
cal and practical aspects of 
buying or developing property 
in the Marbella area. The 
company was an estate agent- 
cum-property developer. 

In the Bennetts' case they 
paid £50,000 on account, for 
which they got a plot of land - 
and a villa was .to be built on 

tL - - - m • • 

Mr Bennett says he is in 
dispute with the Spanish 
builder who will not release 
the title (over which the 
builder has a claim in Spanish 
law), and he claims the 
£50,000 he gave Mr Cooper 
did not go through a Spanish 
bank account If this is the

because Mr Rosen “"wanted to. role in: the. acqinsi-

dealing which surrounds 

A statement of affairs pre- 
pared on behalf of the compa- 
ny for the creditors’ meeting 
put the amount owing to 
unsecured creditors at 
£73,030, a figure that Mr 
Rosen subsequently claimed 
should have been smaller. 
That statement of indebted- 
ness did not include a number 
of cases such as the Bennetts' 
and those of other individual 
clients of M&M who claim u> 
be owed money by the 

Despite having managed 
three companies which failed, 
Mr Rosen is, in his own 
words, “a man of substantial 
wealth". He says: “I have been 
for some years. It's not a 
crime, is it?”. He adds that the 
first company went under 23 
years ago. 

Mr and Mrs Bennett have 
handed over about £53,000 to 
M&M - the extra £3,000 they 
gave Mr Cooper was for 
fturmture they have never seen 
or used — for an unfinished i 
villa in Spain, the title of 
which is now in dispute. 

Their initial bill from the 
lawyers who now represent 
them ,is a handsome £4,000. 

But Mr Rosen is adamant 
that the majority of clients 
who have dealt with. M&M are < 
■ satisfied/ with the service they 
have received, and that: Mr 
/Bennett , has . had .*>alue for 
/'money . ..j 

stealing clients’ money.” He 
claims M&M has dealt with 
1.400 to 1,500 clients over 
almost 10 years. 

If Mr Rosen's claim that 
clients are happy is true, the 
same cannot be said for the 
trade creditors. Vaughn 
Hartman’s advertising com- 
pany is owed approximately 

More legalaction 
being considered 

£22,000 by M&M. Mr 
Hartman decided matters 
should be brought to a head in 
April. “I decided I couldn't go 
on. They (M&M) made prom- 
ise after promise, but nothing 
was done, "he said. 

What can and will be done 
in this particular case remains 
to be seen. Some creditors are 
considering further legal 

In general, however, there 

are some lessons to be learned 
from a sad tale. Mr Bennett s 
biggest regret is “believing in a 
company which said they 
dealt with it all for you". He 
said: “1 wish I'd used English 
lawyers from the start.” 

Michael Soul, an English 
solicitor specializing in Span- 
ish property transactions, 
would agree: “People 
shouldn’t pay money to any- 
one other than the owner of 
the property they're buying, 
and they can tell who the 
owner is by instructing a 

The Estate Agents Act 1979 
requires agents to keep 
“diems’ money” on a separate 
account. Unfortunately, that 
provision, which would make 
it so much easier to trace a 
would-be purchaser’s cash, 
does not apply to contracts to 
acquire properties outside the 
UK. Mr and Mre Bennett 
must be cursing their luck.

Special situations in Mr 
Levy’s book also do not mean 
a quick punt on a speculative 
situation: "I very rarely deal 
within the Stock Exchange 
account. In feet I can hardly 
recall the last time we did sa" 
So what does 
count as spe-' 
dal fbr him?. 

One example 
is GT Global 
Recovery, an 
bust that is 
due to be 
wound up in 
March 1988. 

At the moment its share price 
is standing at a- 15' per cent 
discount to the value of the 
underlying assets, that is. the 
shareholdings it owns. 

Experience shows that these 
limited life investment trusts 
are often snapped up by a 
predator — usually around 
nine months before they ex- 

irust, which puts the firm in a 
nice position to influence the 
course of any takeover bid. 

And even if-thebid does not 
-materialize, tbe holding pro- 

vides- a nice- '15 per; cent

John Alexander, the 27- 
year-old manager of TR Spe- 
cial Opportunities, which has 
increased by more than 50 per 
cent, during the past year, 
defines one stereotype, special 
situation as a company capi- 
talized at less than £15 mil- 
lion. which is under- 
researched and underbroked. 


“Shares that nobody; else 
wants are another type I look 
for.” he says. He quotes the 
example : of . Wdlstetibolme 
Rink, the chemicals to powder , 
coating' company, which: - he _• 
bought ' after the company 
pulled ".out." of a .disastrous 
business venture. 

' He' originally bought: them 
at 1 80p and sold them ar290p. 

. When they fell back he bought 
' them again at 1 76p. as against 
a current price of around

Alexander's definition of a 
special situation is often a

“The rules for compensa-

Figures to 
prove trust 

There are statistics to prove 
that some unit trust managers 
are better than others. 

According to the latest fig- 
ures from Planned Savings 
magazine, fond managers such 
as Edinburgh Fund Managers. 
GT, Mercury, Schroder, Pro- 
lific, Barrington, Perpetual, 
Henderson, Gartmore and 
Framl ingtoo have on average 
performed rather better than 
other groups in the last year. 

Longer term, groups such as 
GT, Prolific and Perpetual 
have consistently tinned in a 

The statistics are based on , 
the valae of £100 invested over 
various' periods in the funds of 
the individual groups. In reali- 1 
ty, of course, you would not be : 
able to spread an. inxestmenL 
as smalLas-flOO between unit 
trusts. The figures are weight- 
ed to take account of the size of 
each ftmd, and 30 groups are , 

Perpetual has the most im- 
pressive track record, hitting 
the top spot over the 10-year, 
nine-year, eight-year and five- 
year periods, with two second 
places one third, one fourth 
and one seventh. GTis a dose 
runner-up, never having been

Why your savings will 
need more protection 



Draft rules for the protection 
of investors* money, now 
being formulated by the Secu- 
rities and Investment Board 
(SIB), could be so watered 
down that investors will end 
up with less than adequate 
prelection for their savings. 

The controversial question 
of segregation of clients’ mon- 
ey from the firm's funds has 
pitched the Stock Exchange 
into bitter opposition to the 
SIB, and has become inextri- 
cably mixed up with the all- 
important question of 
compensation for clients who 
lose money when an invest- 
ment adviser fails. 

The SIB - is pressing" for 
segregation o Fclienis' funds. It 
wants to see money belonging 
to investors put in a separate 
trust account at the bank. If 
the firm failed, the clients' 
money would then be separate 
from the firm's assets and 
could noi be used to pay off 
trade creditors. Although 
there are strong arguments for 
segregation of clients’ funds,

the SIB’s stance could result in 
investors gening worse, rather 
than belter, protection. 

The SIB is pressing for 
segregation because non- 
stockbroker investment advis- 
ers (members of the National 
Association of Securities 
Dealers and Investment Man- 
agers — NASDIM — licensed 
dealers in securities and oth- 
ers) are reluctant to put up 
cash for a compensation fund. 
They want to insure the risk, 
or at least part of it To do this 
at reasonable rates the insur- 
ance underwriters are insisting 
that clients’ money is segregat- 
ed in trust accounts. 

But an insurance scheme is 
worse than useless in many 
situations - as investors in the 
ill-fated Signal Life Gilt Bond 
know to their cost. For the 
insurers to pay out under a 
professional inaemnily policy 
providing cover for NASDIM 
members and others, the ag- 
grieved client would first have 
to sue the broker successfully 
for negligence. This frequently 
lakes years, even when it is 
successful, and small investors 
who have lost their life savings 
in the collapse of an invest- 
ment firm are hardly likely to 
have spare cash around for 
legal fees. 

A cash compensation fund 
such as that administered by 
the Stock Exchange and the 
Association of British Travel 
Agents (ABTA) is the only 
sensible solution. 

The situation is complicat- 
ed still further because the 
SIB, which' is proposing 

Stock Exchange 
* is lelactaint 

£30,000 compensation (likely 
to be increased to around 
£50,000) per client wants the 
Stock Exchange, NASDIM 
and all other self-regulatory 
groups, to join its compensa- 
tion scheme. 

But the Stock Exchange is 
reluctant to do this as it 
already has a compensation 
scheme in operation which to 
date has never felled to com- 
pensate brokers' clients in full. 
And even after Big Bang on 
October 27. the Slock Ex- 
change fund would still pay 

out up to £250.000 - consider- . 
ably more than the inadequate 
£30,000 proposed by the SIB. 

Even though £L5 million of 
Signal Life bonds were sold by 
intermediaries, many of 
whom were registered brokers 
and members of the British 
Insurance Brokers' "Associa- 
tion. and many of whom have 
been successfully sued for 
negligence, most of the inves- 
tors have still not received any 
of their money back, because 
they cannot afford to sue: 

The Stock Excha nge is ' 
strongly' opposed to segrega- : 
lion of diems’ funds On the 
grounds that it is an adminis- 
trative nightmare. And the 
banks, which under current 
law could be liable for any 
losses on clients' trust ac- 
counts, are petitioning for 
immunity from responsibility 
if money is moved illegally 

‘Segregation could 
be dangerous’ 

from clients' trust accounts. 
This would effectively remove 
any protection the client en- , 
joys from having money in a 
trust account 

“Segregation is not only 
illusory but potentially 
dangerous," said a Stock Ex-, 
change spokesman. And trust 
accounts would still not pre- 
vent the really determined 
fraudster from misappropriat- 
ing funds. He simply would 
. not pay- clients’ . money into 
the account. Tlu£ fcappehedm

Whatever the outcome of 
the segregation debate, one 
thing is clear — compensation 
provided by an insured 
scheme is almost as bad as no 
compensation at all because of 
the difficulties and expense of 
first proving negligence or 
fraud. What is needed is a 
properly financed cash fund. If 
the travel agents and the Stock 
Exchange can do it, why can’t 
the rest?

Entry-fee condition met by halfpenny 

Regina v Bodmin Crown 
Court, Ex parte Young 
Before Lord Justice Pure has. 
Lord Justice MustiU and Lord 
Justice BaJ combe 
[Judgment given July 2] 

A condition in a liquor licence 
which permitted the sale of 
alcohol only to bona fide vis- 
itors to a recreation park who ; 

taurant with a licence. 

The complex attracted about 
300.000 visitors a year. On 
entering, visitors paid £1.80 to 
gain access and that entitled 
them to tour the mine and visit 
other amusements. 

At the end of 1982 the 
applicant decided to apply for a 
full on-licenctfor Jus restaurant 

in the light of the circumstances 
of the case. The applicant did 
not object to the conditions. 

He accepted, bis solicitor's 
advice that the conditions could 
be. met by charging an entrance 
fee of a halfoenny and then 
charging a fee for enlrance-to the 

objection to the renewal of the 
licence and the justices refused 
to renew iu The grounds must 
have been that owing to re- 
peated breaches of the condition 
the applicant was not a suitable 
person to hold a licence. -

.Young, from a decision of the 
Queen's Bench Divisional 
Court (Lord Justice Lloyd and 
Mr Justice Skinner) who on 
January 30, 1 986 had refused an 
application for judicial review 
of a decision of Bodmin Grown 
Court who, on September 14, 
1984, had . dismissed Mr 
Young's appeal against a de- 
rision of the Helston and 
Kerri er Licensing Justices who, 
on February 29, 1984, had

opposed by the victuallers' 
Association and two local licens- 
ees. The sheet anchor of the 
application was that the main 
purpose was to assist people 
visiting the complex. 

The applicant had decided no 
longer to charge £1.80 for en- 
trance but to marge instead for 
use of the amusement facilities 
and for access to the mine 
individually. That intended 
change of- policy was not dis- 
closed to the justices. - 

licence was was made finaL 
The victuallers* association 
did not oppose the application 
for that licence. But a warning 
was delivered by the chairman 
of the justices to the applicant 

A icant had decided no that they would be- watching 
charge £1.80 for mi- carefully for the observance of 
to charge instead for the conditions. There were.sorae 

the conditions. 7here.were.some 
16 visits by police officers to 
monitor the. applicant's perfor- 
mance of the conditions: 

When the time, approached 
Tortile renewalof the licence the 

was still an entrance fee which 
obliged the applicant to control 
access to the premises. .The 
applicant had consulted a solic- 
itor and received advice. . 

The language of the condition 
was dear. The prospective cus- 
tomer had to be charged a fet A 
halfpenny had.been legal tender,

licence "on "the conditions, inter 
alia, that intoxicating Liquor 
mighronly be-sold or supplied 
to persons who were (a) bona 
fide visitors at the complex 
having paid the designated en-

organized tour exempt from 
payment for admission, or (b) 
persons taking bona fide table 
meals for consumption as an 
anciUary to that meaL 
Those conditions bad to be

accordance with the licence. 

" The issue was whether the 
halfoenny entrance fee was a 
breach of the condition. It was 
said it could embrace people 
who were not botta fide visitors. 

The police did not oppose the 
- application notwithstanding the 
numerous visits to the complex 
and therefore the implication 
was dm they did not find non-

Knowledge of 
- right ~ 

Mr Justice Hirst 
[Judgment given June 27] 

The leaving of shotguns at 
another’s house for cleaning and 
safekeeping white both parties 
were on holiday was a transfer of 

the definition of “transfer” in custody 
. section 57(4), said that on the yond the 
facts found the posroon of with the 
neither defendant fell within the foots wet 
words “hire” or “give”. those in 

Did they foil within the phrase 
“lend and part with Asan 

firearms within section 57(4) of possession**? If the phrase was to 
the Firearms Act 1968 and the be read disjunctively the court 
recipient's custody of the guns bad to consider whether or not 
was custodial possession within the words were apt to include 

section 2(1) of the Act. 

The Queen's Bench Di- 
visional Court so held in a 
reserved judgment allowing the 
prosecutor's appeal against the 
dismissal of a charge against the 
first defendant, Samuel Cotton, 
that he had transferred to a 
person other than a registered 
firearms dealer two shotguns 
contrary to section 3(2) of the 
Firearms Act 1968. and a charge 
against the second defendant. 
Kenneth Eric Treadwell, that 
he. not holding a shotgun certifi- 
cate in force at the tune, had a 
shotgun in his possession con- 
trary to section 2(1) of the Act 

“parting with possession” in 
some sense other than the 
proprietary possesson which 
was, on theauthority of ■S’k/Z/wm 
v Earl qf Caithness (pWft QB; 
966), retained by; the first, 

In bis Lordship's judgment 
the phrase was to be read 

The definition of “transfer” 
commenced with “includes” 
and therefore, subject to the 
ejusdem generis rule, the defi- 
nition was not exclusive or 

custody of them extended be- 
yond the period of the holiday 
with the first defendant. Those 
foots were distinguishable from 
those in the Caithness case. 

As a matter of law , no doubt 
there was a distinction between 
“custody" and “possession" al- 
though in many cases the former 
would necessarily involve the 
latter. “Custody" and 
“possession” were . certainly 
equated in_dDigS^ where 
■ one person knowingly' had cus- 
. tody of drugs .for another- . ;. : 

■ On the forts, custody coupled 
-with, the knowledge of such ! 
custody must* be equated with 
“possession”. The second defen- 
dant ' had “custodial 
possession” Such custody could 
only arise by at least a custodial 
interest being transferred from 
one defendant to the other and 
fell within the phrase “lend and 
part with possession”.

H (a Minor) v Chief Constable 
of South Wales 

Although it was not necessary 
to call formal evidence to show 
that a child was a normal child 
for his age, there had to be some 
material before justices to rebut 
the presumption that a child 
between the ages of 10 and 14 
did not know the difference 
between right and wrong. 

Evidence that a child merely 
appreciated the consequences of 
what he was doing was_ not 
sufficient fo satisfy iusticis.that 
a defendant aged Ji years and 9 
months appreciated what he had 
done was wrong -and went 
beyond childish tmsdnef! . - 

The Queen’s Bench. Di- 
visional Court (Lord Justice 
Woolf and -Mr Justice Simon 
Brown) so held on June 24 when 
allowing the defendant's appeal 
against • his conviction for 
damaging property, contrary to 
section 1(1) of the Criminal 
Damage Act 1971.

again at Sandown Park today 
when Dancing Brave, who 
finished second in the Epsom 
colts' classic, contests the Cor- 
al Eclipse Stakes. 

Already Shahrastani, who 
got less credit than both he 
and Walter S win burn de- 
served at Epsom, has played 
an: important, role .by also 
winning the Irish Derby. What 
is arguably more fascinating 
about today's race is the fact 
that Dancing Brave will be 
taking on older horses for the 

first time and they include two 

good opponents from France. 

Until now we do not really 
know how the current classic 
crop compares with other 
generations. After today's race 
we will be the wiser because, 
in addition to those hardy 
annuals, Bedtime and Tele- 
prompter, Dancing Brave's 
opposition includes Triptych, 
who won ■ the Irish 2,000 
Guineas last year. . 

' More often than not it takes 
a pretty special three-year-old' 
to. beat top class oWer horses 
in this particular- race. 

I believe that Dancing 
Brave is just such an individ- 
ual. Only a racehorse of the 
highest class could have made 
up the ground that he did in 
the straight at Epsom. Before 

the pace. So with Grand 
Harbour likely to set a bliste r- 
in g gallop for Teleprompter, 1 
will be surprised ifStarkey lies 
out of his ground on Dancing 
Brave, especially as front run- 
ners Kke Teleprompter have 
always taken some pegging 
back here which, for some 
reason, is a front-runners 
course. Also you need all the 
luck- in the world to come 
from behind at Sandown. 

This, then, is an ideal 
opportunity for Starkey and 
Danang Brave to reassert 

Bold Arrangement, who ran 
his first and only bad race in 
the Derby, is the only other 
three-year-old in the field. 

According to our Newmar- 
ket Correspondent, his last 
serious bit of work at home 
was as good as any he has ever 
done. So over a distance 
which should suit him to 
perfection, judged on his stout 
effort in the Kentucky Deity 
over .10 furlongs, be should 
acquit himself well again to- 
day without being good 
enough to beat"' Dancing 
Brave. ‘

From Oar Irish Racing 
Correspondent, Dublin 

Dancing Brave, the Derby nmner-Hp, who competes against 
senior rivals for the first time in Sandown’s Eclipse Stakes. 

that he was an utterly convtnc- 


ing winner of the 2, 
eas at Newmarket. 


After the Derby arguments 
raged about the way that 
GrevjDe Starkey rode him.. 
Now is not the time to go into 
that all over a^ain. What is 
clear, though, is that there 
should be no bard luck stories 
this time. Dancing Brave has 
proved that he stays, which he 
had not before Epkim, and he 
has shown wonderful powers 
of acceleration. 

Every bit as important is 
when he won his classic at 
Newmarket he also showed 
that he can be ridden up with 

Having so __ 
that speedy filly Orient at 
Ascot two weeks ago Treasure 
Kay should be in nis element 
sprinting for the Trafalgar 
House Stakes. He holds the 
recent Newcastle winner Dub- 
lin Lad on that Ascot form. 

With runners at Sandown. 
Haydock, Bath and Phoenix 
Park this afternoon no trainer 
will be more committed than 
Raul Cole, whose move from 
Lam bourn to Whatcombe has 
already paid excellent, divi- 
dends. With Sarab on duty in 
Ireland where he will be 
ridden by Pat Eddery, my 
feeling is that Cole can make 
each course a successful port 
of calL 

Maazi in the Victoria Ama- 
teur Turf Chib Handicap at 
Sandown, just as he .was when 
they won the Iasi race at 
Epsom on Derby Day. Now 
they. look : poised to deny 
Bundabur^ a § . second 
successive victory in this par- 
ticular race. 

Beijing is napped to. com- 
plete a treble in the Satzenbrau 
Diat Pils Handicap at 
Haydock where her stable 
companion Floose can do 
likewise in the Cock Of The 
North Stakes. 

“The further she goes the 
tetter she will be,” was how 
Cole summed up Beijing re- 
cently. So today's distance will 
dearly suit this improving 
half-sister lo the Irish St Leger. 
winner Protection Racket. 

The composition of the Odd 
for the group three Pacemaker 
International Stakes at the 
Pheonix Park this afternoon 
resembles the turnout for last 
Saturday's Irish Deriy. Once 
Mrin the English stables pro- 
vide half the rennets, hot 
whereas at the end of the Irish 
Derby the invaders had carried 
Off all die prize money, they are 
unlikely to repeat that perfor- 
mance today. 

The English trio are headed 
by another amch travelled older 
horse, the Pud Cole-traiaed 
Sarah, backed up by Y 
Runaway (G Harwood) 
Esquire (B Hills). 

Sarah has won two group 
three races in Europe this term, 
scoring in Germany at Baden- 
Baden w»d then rvm^img home 
in the Prix da Chemin de Fa- da 
Nard at Chantilly on French 
Oaks day. However, he Cues 
tough opposition today from the 
home trio of King's River, Mr 
John, and Nashamaa. 

Mr John has had a busy time 
of late fannin g in both the 
Rnglfeh and the Irish Derbys. 

The most probable winner 
appears to be King's River as not 
only will he be racing over his 
fitvoarite course and distance, 
but be qualifies for a Sib 
allowance from Sarah, a factor 
that should tip the issae his way. 


Other fancies on the Lanca- 
shire track must be Mill On

for Waldron 

‘ Philip Waldron; who staited 
.his racing career as an appren- 
tice at Kingsclere with Ian 
Balding, was reunited unexpect- 
edly with his old guvnor to ride 
the winner. Golden Braid, in the 
Jardine Maiden Fillies* Stakes at 
Sandown yesterday. 

Waldron came in for the ride 
only a few minutes before the 
horses cantered down to the 
start as substitute for intended 
rider John Matthias. 

Matthias had partnered

the first time 

for the John Bames Maiden 
Stakes, which produced a 
convincing winner in 
Summeihill Streak. The 5-2 on 
favourite Geltser was beaten 
into fourth place, six lengths 
behind the Newmarket coll. 

Alan Mackay sent 
Summerhill Streak to the front 
two and a half furlongs from 
home, and foe EncJWu; 
trained colt never looked like 
being caught- He strode home 
two lengths ahead of Antinous. 
who was three lengths in front of 
Wichita Springs, . 

The former trainer Aunoi 
Sinclair, who spent the majority 
of her 30 years in foe profession 
at Lewes, now managers the 
Summerhill Stud al Rye for 
Frank Sanderson- She said. 
“Summerhill Streak pulled a 
muscle practising in starting 
stalls at home, which delayed 
his debut.

Lucky five 

Sussex will field five un- 
capped players in the three day 
match against thr New Zealand- 
ers starang today. Chris Mays, 
aged 20.ihe off-spin ‘bowler 
makes his home first class debut 
and Adrian Jones, the fost 
bowler, returns after a foot 
injury to lead the attack with 
Imran Khan. After . Chris 
Waller’s departure to Surrey and 
John Barclay's enforced retire- 
ment with finger trouble, the 
Sussex spin department has 
been seriously weakened- Their 
only other spinners available are 
Andrew Bredin (left arm) and 
David Standing (off spin). 

pitch played easily, 
done all through the match. 
Thorne reached his hundred just 
after lea. with the toial at 263 for 
seven. The eighth wicket fell at 
267' and Oxford were now 104 
ahead. The ninth fell at the same 
score. .The- last wicket fell one 
run later. This left Cambridge 
106 to win with 40 minutes to 
get thorn- This was not qurte 
impossible, just over six an 
over, and Bail and Lea went in 
and started knocking them off. 

Bail was caught at mid-wicket 
at 12. but Lea and Fell, a 
pleasing pastoral combination, 
brought the fifty up in the eighth 
over. Then Lea was bowled, and 
Fell caught at mid-wicket, mak- 
ing rather a hash of it in the 
stress of the moment. The 
fourth went down at 68. With 
three overs left, 30 were needed. 

Oxford did noi bowl or field 
particularly well at this stage. In 
the last two ovets there were two 
no-balls and one wide. Cam-

It was an exciting finish to 
what had been, for the most 
pari, a dull match. A very good 
win. though, for Cambridge, and 
a disappointing performance by 

Oxford had begun at 24 for 
one. with no more shining 
prospect before them than a 
long haul to try to save the 
match. The only man they could 
reasonably hope to sustain their 
effort was their captain. Thome, 
and this be did for a long time, 
despite some rather disparate 
batting at the other end. Thome 
was bom in Coventry in 1964. 
and resides at KebJe, which is 
reverting to its old tradition or 
muscular Christianity.

though still oppressive. The

steadfast eighth wicket partner- 
ship of 59 runs in 26 overs, 
between Small and Munton, 
frustrated Nottinghamshire's 
drive to a fourth victory in the 
Britannic Assurance county 
championship match against 
Warwickshire al Trent Bridge, 

McMillan had been 61 not 
out and Amiss, one not out. 
when Warwickshire began again 
at 111 for three, and still 211 
nms behind. Because of bad 
light there had been intermittent 
stoppages in play throughout the 
day. though judging from the 
way McMillan and Amiss 
played, only Nottinghamshire 
might have suffered 

At Grace- Road.- Leicester. 
Leicestershire occupied the 
crease until-4,30, when they then 
declared at 251 for eight against 
Hampshire. Cobb and Whitaker 
had taken guard in the morning 

at 30 for three, with Leicester- 
shire leading by 48. Cobb was 
soon gone, caught behind as be 
aimed to hook Connor, and in 
the fifth over. Whitaker felt 
obliged to retire having been hit 
on the hand by a ball bowled by 
Marshall. Later, an x-ray had 
shown Whitaker to have suf- 
fered a crack on theback of his 
left hand, and a hairline fracture 
of his right index finger. ' 

Hill and Morris had walked 
out in the morning at Derby, 
with Derbyshire 100 for three, 
and leading Worcestershire by

determination as they budded 
down to scoring the runs Barnett 
would need before declaring.

beat' Middlesex (7) by 197 


An astonishing collapse by 
Middlesex, who lost their last 
nine wickets in 90 minutes 
after tea to the spin attack of 
Pocock and Medlycott, 
brought Surrey their huge 
victory yesterday in unexpect- 
ed fashion. 

It was a triumph for Keith 
Medlycott, their young left 
arm spinner, who exploited 
thetum and uneven bounce to 
claim five wickets for the 
second time in the match, 
ending with the impressive 
figures of 10 . for 155, and 
vindication for Pat Pococfc, 
Who took the other four 
wickets to bring the -victory 
after his declaration setting 
Middlesex the unlikely target 
of 357 in 160 minutes, plus 20 
overs, had looked cautious in 
the extreme. 

It certainly seemed so at tea, 
when a stalemate at 5.30 
looked inevitable, Middlesex 
having reached an untroubled 
72 for the loss of Slack, whose 
current lack of form was again 
evident. The rot, however, set 
in a quarter of an hour 
afterwards as Milter padded 
up to Medlycott for the ball to 
spin back on to his stumps. : . 

ln : the next over -Butcher, 
the hero of the first innings, 
was bowled as he gave himself 
room to cut. The powerfully- 
built Roseberry, who had used 
his feet to drive the spinners 
forcefully for a straight six and 
nine fours in his first fim class 
SO. now ventured forward 
once too often, the impressive 
Richards giving him no op- 
portunity to regain his ground. 

Suddenly, as fieldsmen clus- 
tered around the bat and the 
spinners found bite and dis- 
concerting bounce as -well as 
turn, survival- looked an im- 
possible ambition. It Was be- 
yond Carr,' who groped 
forward • uncertainly to be 
taken off bat and pad, and 
when Downton fell in the 
same over, steering a ball 
which bounced to slip, five 
wickets had fallen in half an 

Radley proved more resil- 
ient, and with Hughes also 
showing signs of : sticking 
around, thpy /saw. Middlesex 
into the final 20 overs Without 
further accident^lbeit: - wjtb 
-several alarms as the spinners 
found" edges, ytlb^ifieldSrs 
bopped around' eagerly and 
yells of “catch it” rent the air. 

The final 20 overs, however, 
proved their undoing. Pocock 
immediately made one turn 
and bite al Radley, who could 
only fend it to short leg. 
Hughes' resistance was ended 
one over later as. Medlycott 
caught him in two minds, and 
although Cowans dented the 
left arm bowler's figures wjth 
some hefty blows, he, Daniel 
and Tufoell conk) 'only delay 
what was by qow inevrtahle. 
India look no risks and made ho 
effort to hurry the pace on an 
easy wicket at Stanley Park. 
With two more days remaining, 
and England strong in batting* 
victory for either ride seems 

highly unlikely. 

At close of play 
declared at 426 for nir 

India had 
• nine. In reply 
England scored 43 without loss.

Frank Woolley played 64 
Hmes for England, a high figure 
for his time. (Hobbs, roughly his 
contemporary, played 61). 
Woolley's first Test was in 1909. 
This is the sad tale of his last, in 

Woolley was less admired 
than adored. His attributes, 
especially in Kent, were consid- 
ered godlike. Ia a Cantons sen- 
tence, Cardns wrote: “There is 
ail summer in a stroke by 
Woolley.” His achievements 
were vast He scored almost 
59,000 runs, more than anyone 
except Hobbs, with 345 centu- 
ries; and took more than- 2^)00 
wickets. He -was- left-handed 
with both bat and balL - 

Best two innings 
of his life 

In Tests, it was true, he was 
not quite so dominant His 
Jashing grace did not take 

easily to the tuae-oolimited 

gam e which then ruled in 
Australia. He scored only two 
centuries against them over 
there, and m England none, 
though he had 95 and 93 in the 
Lord's Test of 1921, which he 
considered, the best, two in- 
nings of hisiife. • 

He had not played, nor, one 
imagines, been serionsly con- 
sidered, in the fust four Tests 
of 1934. Before the fifth 
Hendrea, who had been doing 
pretty well, was ifr/nred, and 
Woolley, in his 48tii year, was 
recalled (Hendreh was in his 
46th). He had been making 
runs for Kent and it was 
thought that his left-handed- 
ness would be an asset against 
the leg-spin of O'Reilly and 
GrimmetL Ley land, another 
left-hander, had been 
England's most successful 
batsman. ' 

Woolley’s return was grefet- 
. ed with surprise. England had 
made a successful recall of a 
veteran at the Oval with 
Rhodes, eight years before. In 
the first innings, going in after 
an opening partnership of 104, 
Woolley had only scored four 
when he nudged O'Reilly to 

This was sad, but as Austra- 
lia had already scored 701 
(during which Woolley was 
■said to have dropped two very 
difficult catches), was hardly 
-critical to foe destiny of foe; 
- match. Worse was io -coa& 
-England were all out for 321. . 

• Since the robber stood at 
one-alL, foe match was to be 
played to a finish, and it was a 
reasonable decision for Ans- 
• tralia to bat again- Who was to 
keep wicket? A talk straight 
figure stepped forward to foe 
table and picked np the 
wicketkeeping gJores* Guards- 
man Frank was answering foe 
call of duty. 

England bad to bat again. 
When Woolley came - in, 
McCabe was bowling, having 
disposed of C F Walters. 
Card us wrote: “Woolley s sec- 
.ond- failure hi the match b roke 
the hearts of his adorers. Eirst 
of all he was nearly ruu .out. 
Then hedrove at McCabe *^h 
an energy quite unlike hinn he 
is never obviously violent at' 
lushest ^ The ball lifted a little, 
and Woolley's drive was trans- 
formed into a terribly weak 
catch to mid-off." 

The selectors had taken a 
risk, and lost A hallow’ir 
summer would have been a 
delight but none thought tfie 
worse of Woolley, even if it 
- was only his gallant ghost that 
they had been watching.

Redgrave puts 
on double act 

coasting home 


The third day of Henley 
Royal Regatta Started with a 
lough race in the Ladies' 'Chal- 
lenge Cup Plate. Dublin's -Nep- 
tune Rowing Cub beat London 
University by half a length but 
not before the Irish crew had 
been pressured to within a 
canvas by the Mile. 

Neptune have another hard 
race on their hands today- when 
they meet part or the Irish 
establishment represented by 
Garda Siochana. . Garda,, just 
before noon, took out Princeton 
University's gallantlightweighis 
by a leh&h and‘threequartei5 
and are looking long ana mean. 

Two .hoots- earlier, - Thames 
Tradesmen, and MoJesey had 
been locked in combat for a 
place in the- semi-final round. 
Mbiesey led initially but by 
Fawley, Tradesmen -had 
sneaked a canvas, and then 
lengthened out to win by two 
lengths and a half. 

Better races were to come but 
not before Marlow's Steve 
Redgrave predictably moved 
into the semi-final round of the 
Diamonds beating Paul John- 
son. from Tyne, by five lenglhs 
and miming a sense of exhaus- 
tion at the finish. 

The opening round of the 
Prince Philip produced a thriller 
between Thames. Tradesmen 
and-Exeier Rowing Club against 
the- Tideway Scullers. There, 
were some crafty and' old han ds 
in each crew with battle honours . 
embracing Olympic, world and 
Henley tides. “ ■* 

There was- never more than 
threequarters of a length be- 
tween the crews and after a long 
sigh Tradesmen and Exeter 
crept over the line by a third of a 
length. Len Robertson, from the 
winningcrew, started his glitter- 

ing career with a world junior 
silver medal in Amsterdam 

almost two decades ago. He is 
some competitor, matched only 
by the enthusiasm of Rolf 

M unding in the losing crew. 

s tht ' 

By the afternoon uie clouds : 
had rolled over the regatta bat ; 
optimism ruled the day . a »- * 
though the water was just ' 
slightly ruffled by the persistent .. 
cross bead wind. 

Despite this wind, Andy - 
Holmes and Redgrave breezed 
over the course with a substan- 
tiaJ lead banked early on over. : 

Aberdeen University's Brett arid T 

in the Silver Gobletsand 

Smith . w— — — , .. 
almost gave a demonstration of; ' 
slow-motion rowipg with eon-’ 1 , 
fidence by the end of the course : 
to reach today's' semi-final,* 
round. Redgrave and Holmes.. 

are real class. Bjome EUang-. 
from Denmark duly cruised into 
the Diamonds semi-final with 
21* lengths to spare over Steve - 
Gawihrop from Rob Roy, Cam- 

Harvard’s freshmen were in 
aggressive mood in the quarter- 
finals of the Ladies' Challenge 
Plate. They stamped their 
authority on Cambridge - 
University and Goldie Boat 
Cub by a length and a half after 
a close race to foe Barrier. . 

So once again the . noose . is 
tightening at Henley Royal Re-* 
gatta and this weekend promises 
some exciting -races with ' many 
world class' crews on -display. - 
The Grand opens up today. with. 
Great Britain's national .eighty 
rowing as Nautilus against a 
tough and rugged university 
eight from Wisconsin. Garda 
Siochana will meet their 
compatriots, Neptune, in the 
semi-final round of the Ladies' 
Challenge Plate.

Dutch protest on first day 

From John Wflcockson, Paris 

In the context of 2,560 miles 
of racing over 23 days, a time 
trial of 19 miles lasting less 
than six minutes does not 
count for much, but the 
prestige of winning the pro- 
logue stage of the Tour de 
France is gigantic. That is why 
yesterday Peter Posl the wily 
Dutch manager of the 
Panasonic team, made a 
strong protest when his prote- 
ge. Eric Vanderaerden. of 
Belgium, finished second, 
only half a second slower than 
the’ declared winner. Thierry 
Marie, of France. 

Marie was presented with 
the first yellow jersey, but it 
was another 90 minutes before 
the 23-year-old from the Cal- 
vados region of Normandy 
was confirmed as the first 
leader of the 73rd edition of 
the Tour de France. 

The jury of appeal derided 
that although Marie's low 
profile bicycle had a plastic 
aerofoil fitted to the back of 
the saddle, it was permissible 
under regulation 49 of the 
Union Cyclisle 


Cyrille Guimard. Marie’s 

team coach, explained why the 
device had been fined. He 
said: “Thierry had a problem 
last year. He was sliding 
forward on his saddle when be 
rode a time trial We fitted the 
support to hold him in place.” 
This seemed curious becaasea 
back stop would not stop the 
rider from sliding forward. 

Post's second complaint 
was a less formal one. Tt 
concerned another Dutch- 
man. Gerrie Knetemann, who 
started his time trial one 
minute ahead of Marie. As 
Knetemann revved down the 
starting ramp he pulled loose 
his rear wheel. He had to stop 
to straighten and tighten it. 

Just as he got back into full 
flight, he was joined by Marie. 
About a mile ofthe hexagonal- 
ly shaped circuit remained, 
and the Frenchman clearly 
benefited from latching on to 
the Dutchman, who is a noted 
expert at prologue time trials. 
Bui, again, the protest was 

The jury perhaps took into 
account the fact that Marie 
also won the prologue stage of 
the Tour of Spain two months 

ago. His victory yesterday was 
particularly satisfying for 
Guimard, who has been criti- 
cized for the weakness of his 
team, which supports one of 
the race favourites, Laurent 

Fignon himself placed sev- 
enth yesterday, two seconds 
behind his great French rival 
Bernard Hinault, the 31-year- 
old from Brittany who is 
chasing a record sixth Tour de 
France victory. 

Hinault was an excellent 
third yesterday, also two sec- 
onds ahead of Greg LeMond, 
his American team mate. 
LeMond. still sweating from 
his fierce effort, said; “That 
was too short for me. I would 
like to have been the best on 
the .team, just to show that I 
am as good as Hinault. ^ 

■Today a 35-mile team lime 
trial ; will almost certainly 
cause a shake-up in the posi- 
tions established. There is an 
fascinating possibility that 
Sean Yates from Sussex, who 
was brought into the Peugeot 
team at the last minute, could 
become the second Englisft- 


Circuit changes win approval 

From John Blunsden 

There was a generally 
favourable response from driv- 
ers yesterday to the modifica- 
tions made to the Paul Ricard 
circuit as they acclimatized 
themselves to the 237 miles 
course in preparation for 
Sunday's French Grand Prix. 
The new link road connecting 
the front and back straights 
involves a light first gear right 
hander followed by a more 
gradual comer taken in second 
gear, with a wide gravel run-off 
area on the outside. 

“It is much safer than the old 
course." Ayrton Senna said after 
claiming the provisional pole 
position in his JPS Lotus. “The 
only problem could be the first 
lap. Everyone will have to be 
very careful first time through 
the corner because it will be very 
congested then. But after that it 
should be no problem and it will 
certainly be safer for everyone.” 

Senna spent much of the 
preliminary practice lesting the 
latest specification Renault en- 
gine. which incorporates a 
modified cylinder head- “The 
results so fair look promising.” 
Peter Warr, their team director, 
said; “But we will hot be malting

Afier Nelson Piquet had sei 
the initial qualifying pace with 
his Canon Williams-Honda. 
Nigel Mansell, his team partner, 
took command, but he in turn 
was quickly challenged by 
Senna, who tipped him by less 
than one hundredth of a second 
before Mansell claimed back the 
fastest time with an even better 
run. But Mansell had been 
baulked by traffic on his final 
lap. and Senna was able to 
counter-attack again decisively 
with the aid of his second set of 
fresh-' tyres. Both - drivers are

Ferrari, preparing to take part 
in their 40Qth Grand Prix, have 
found some much-needed extra 
performance from the combina- 
tion of a longer wheel base, a 
wider track and a 50 bhp 
stronger engine. Meanwhile, en- 
gines — or the possible lack of 
them — has been the main 
talking point in the paddock 
following the _ surprise 
announcement this week from 
BMW — currently supplying the 
Brabham, Arrows and Benetton 
teams — that they will be 
withdrawing at the end of this 

Jean Sage, Renault's race 
director, says that the loss of 
BMW will be- a -major, blow to 
Formula One and there is no 
question .of his own company 
serving more than 'three teams 
(at present these are Lotus, 
Ligier and Tyrrell). In fact, 
Renault would prefer to restrict 
themselves to two teams, which 
isa worry to Ken Tyrrell, whose 
contract with them expires at 
the end of the year. “They have 
promised me a derision regard- 
ing next year by this weekend.” 
he said, “but so far I have heard 

Although there; has been no 
official announcement, there is 
now a widely held view that of 

the various 1 alternatives being 
offered - by FISA, the sport’s 
governing body, to x red dee 
horsepower, the teams and en- 
gine suppliers are almost cer- 
tainly going to opt fora return to 
normally aspirated engines by 
1 989 with a capacity limit of 3^ 
litres and most probably a 
restriction to no more than eight 
cylinders. This means that tur- 
bos will have just two more 
years to run after the current 
season and some form of power 
limiting device may well be 
applied to them during this 
period. The excessively power- 
ful qualifying engines are also 
soon to be -made redundant by 
the decision to ; allocate grid 
positions next year partly by the 
result of a 'race: which will be 
25% the. length of the following 
day’s Grand Prix. and portly by 
drivers' championship positions 
and recent race results.

Lawson faces world title challenge 

From Michael Scott, Spa Fraocorchamps 

The world championship

favourite to win tomorrow's 
Belgian Grand Prix. Bui as

Spa Francorchamps circuit in

now under iiireai from the 

Rothmans-Honda mounted 
Australian. Wayne Gardner, 
who is only eight points down 
after winning in The Nether- 
lands last weekend when 
Lawson crashed. 

In the first of four practices, it 
was the Frenchman. Christian 
Sarron. who set the early pace 
on his Gauloise-Yamaha. He 
was only one-tenth faster than 

Lawson, who is smoother at this 
fast and difficult track, and 
looks potentially faster. But they 
were almost three seconds ahead

previous successes were in 1974 
and 1983. 

Mrs Bell lost to England in the 
triples final on Thursday 
and, fora while yesterday, as the

and the players’ drying doths 
came out, the disappointment 
seemed to be still with ber, Mrs 
Davies, playing composedly, led 
7-2, 10-5, 14-8, 16-12 and 18-15. 

But Mrs Bell had a-depressing 
habit, from the Welsh girl’s 
point of view, of saving herself 
with her last bowL-She did it 
when Mrs Davies bad a possible 
four shots at 14-8 and .again 
when Mrs Davies held two at 
18-17, with a wood in hand. 

Mrs Davies, using weight, 
saved herself at the next end, 
when Mrs Bell held three shots 
for the title. That was 20-18 to 
Mrs Bell, only the second time 
she had led in the match. On the

Clive Rowlands, the former 
scrum half, captain and coacb of 
Wales, is to manage his 
country’s World Cup squad in 
Australasia next year (David 
Hands writes). The appoint- 
ment of Rowlands, who man- 
aged the British Lions team 
against the Rest of the World in 
April this year, was announced 
by the Welsh Rugby Union 

Rowlands coached Wales for 
six years, between 1968 and 
1974. after winning 14 caps. The 
Welsh Rugby Union have also 
formed the world Cup commit- 
tee among whose first tasks will 
be assessment of the players 
who went on tour with the A & 
B parties to the South Pacific 
and Italy respectively in May. 

Scotland jjpnpimeed earlier 

this week that Bob Munro 
would manage their World Cup 
squad while Ireland expecisa

England's World Cup manage- 
ment commitee is likely to be 
unveiled next week at the time

winning this tour, got away to 
a good start, finishing only 14 
seconds behind Hinault but, 
more significantly, eight sec-

Gatting done 


little justice 

by his bowlers 

By John Woodcock, Cricket Correspondent 

EDGBASTON: India, with 
seven first-innings wickets in 
hand, are JOS runs behind 

U was no longer bright and 
beautiful at Edgbaston yester- 
day, but the series with India, 
sponsored by Comhiit. contin- 
ued to produce some worth- 
while cricket. After two days 
of the third Test match India 
are 182 for three in reply to 
England's 390. 

India would have settled for 
this. I imagine, when they 
went in. Not since England 
beat Australia at the Oval last 
summer had they made as 
good a total, but the bowling 
they followed it up with was 
undistinguished and border- 
ing at times on the ragged, it is 
curious in an age when con- 
tainment is so often the order 
of the day that they are not 
more accurate. It is far too 
soon to rule out an English 
victory, but to achieve one 
they will need to bowl to a 
fuller length than they did 
yesterday. Anyrhing shon is 
meat and drink on this pitch 
to Indian batsmen of this 

There was a certain irony 
about the morning's play. Had 
it been as dark on Thursday, 
when Engjand were beginning 
their innings, the umpires' 
offer to come off for bad light 
would have been accepted, 
and there would have been no 

hours before lunch India, with 
their backs to the wall, bowled 
only 26 overs, while England 
scored 74 runs for the loss of 
Foster, Edmonds and French. 

- By the time Radford was 
last out. in the first over of the 
afternoon. Gatting had -been 
batting for six. and a half hours 
for 294 bafts) and made a fine 
score. I was much reminded of 
the Gentlemen and Players 

had called the tune and played 
wonderfully welL 
India were batting by two 
o'clock and soon rattling 
along. You never quite know 

how Gavaskar is going to bat

play: and if India had been 

tting they would no doubt 
have taken the chance to come 
off. As it was, because it suited . 
England to go on bailing, we 
had a full morning's cricket, 
and it is unlikely that the- 
batsmen were in any way 
incommoded. In the two 

match at Lord’s in 1950, when 
the England captaincy to Aus- 
tralia was also in the offing. 
“That should settle k” (or 
words to that effect) said 
Freddie Brown, as he walked 
through the Long Room after 
making a storming hundred It - 
did. So. now, should Gatling's

these days. With 
his partner he sometimes fakes 
to show that he, too, bas all the 

shots. That is as it was now, so 
that after 10 overs India were. 
50 for no wicket Radford 
must have wondered what had 
hit him. His first three overs 
cost 24 runs, his first five 34, 
Gavaskar taking . three 
successive fours off him and 
Srikkanth flourishing his bat 
like a penny cane. 

There was a difficult diving 
chance to Athey at cover point 
off Radford, given by 
Gavaskar, and it was Radford 
who got rid of Srikkanth, 
Pringle taking a nice catch at 
first slip. Three overs later, 
with only five runs added, 
Gavaskar entirely misjudged . 
the line of a ball from Pringle. 
He played no stroke and back 
went him off stump. Pringle 
had now had a hand in the ftdl. 
of seven of India's last eight 
wickets, here and at 

Radford may have been 
trying to bowl too fast. He was 
not brought in to frighten the 
batsmen out but to bowl 
straight and to pitch the ball 
up. It was sometime before he 
did so. Foster also bowled too 
short and, although the ball 
would torn, it did so only 
slowly. And the Indians are 
used to that 

Amamath and Vengsarkar, 
playing competently, had add- 
ed 80, the last few of them in 
fitful sunshine, when 
Vengsarkar drove at Radford 

Captain courageous: Gatting struck by a ball from Kapil Dev 
during his 183 not out (Photograph: Chris Harris) 

and Gooch, diving to his right 
at second slip, held an excel-

have been pleased to play 

through the last hour after that

rope, has had much to do — as 

ed by players who were both 
in Europe, in this case 

travelling companion, coach 
and confidante — 



Martina Navratilova 
Hana Mandlikova. 

In 1975 Miss Navratilova 
and Renata Tomanova won 
the world team championship 
(Federation Cup) for Czecho- 
slovakia. Since 1981 Miss 
Navratilova has been a Unit- 
ed States citizen but presum- 
ably there will be a conflict of 
loyalties when, later this 
month, she returns to her 
native land in an effort to take 
the Federation Cup away from 
Czechoslovakia, winners for 
the past three years. Miss 
Mandlikova has replaced Miss 
Navratilova as the star of the 
Czechoslovak show. 

Another historic aside is 
that Betty Stove, who lost to 
Virginia Wade in the last final 
between players born in Eu- 

with Miss 

Mandlikova’s. increasing ma- 
turity as a playerand a person. 
That player-person relation- 
ship is essential. Professional 
tennis is increasingly a game 
for the young but it is rare fora 
major title to go to anyone 
other than the comprehen- 
sively adult 

Miss Mandlikova has 
grown up. She is also more 
than five years younger than 
Miss Navratilova, which must 
be measured against the fact 
that Miss Navratilova has 
won 18 of their previous 24 
matches. Miss Mandlikova 
was the last player to beat 
Miss Navratilova at Wimble- 
don. in 1981. though Miss 
Navratilova won their three 
other matches on grass: one at 
Eastbourne, the others in

What alf this" amounts to is 
that there can be no confident 
forecast Miss Navratilova has 
won all her six Wimbledon 
singles finals. This year's op- 
position has hardly been for- 
midable, which means that 
she should have plenty of 
physical and emotional energy 
in reserve. She may be rocked 
back on her heels for a few 
games and Miss Mandlikova 
is' largely a “confidence" play- 
er who.; granted a good start, 
can be irresistibly inspired: 

Miss Navratilova, however, 
is the sounder of the two and 
has the strength of arm and 
wrist that is always important 
on grass, which often demands 

Much depends on whether 
Miss Mandlikova’s services 
and approach shots are as 
boldly accurate as they were 
against Mrs Lloyd. If they are, 
it must be doubled whether 
Miss Navratilova can counter- 
punch as well- as Mrs JJoyd 
usually does. ■ . 

Both players are exception- 
ally good =• movers. Miss 
Mandlik'ova's cross-court 
forehand could hurt Miss 
Navratilova's backhand. 
Equally, Miss Navratilova's 
chipped backhand approach 
shot down the line could be 
fruitfuL It should be a fasci- 
nating match — decided, one 
suspects. by Miss 
Mandlikova’s less predictable 
form and by the way each 
player serves. 

It is too simplistic to suggest 
that the absence of John 
McEnroe and the first round 
defeat of Jimmy Connors has 
been entirely responsible for 
the turn of peace and trumO- 
ity that has settled over Wim- 
bledon this year. 

Obviously the headlines 
would have been shriller had 
they been around but both are 
yesterday's story as for as 
behaviour on the international 
circuit is concerned. 

. . Before going off to watch 
Boris Becker give a highly 
concentrated demonstration of 
power play against the amus- 
ing and less concentrated Hen- 
ri Leconte yesterday loo 
Tiriac, the Wimbledon 
champion's manager, was in a 
long discussion over the 
game's rhanpng mores with 
Marshall Happer, the execu- 
tive director of the Men’s 
International Professional 
Tennis CoandL, and his Paris- 
based assistant, Paul Svehlik. 

“There is no problem with 
the young players," Tiriac 
said. “The Swedes and other 
Europeans are perfect Even 
Boris is better now because he 
knows that when be gets angry 
be plays badly. He had JO 
minutes when he lost his 
temper against Paul 
McNaraee and it hurt him." 

Happer, who has the thank- 
less task of trying to tell multi- 
millionaire superstars what to 
do, was delighted to hear such 
sentiments coming from a man 
who was apt to cause a little 

maybertt oh aunt in his own 
playing days. 

“The general behaviour pat- 
' tern ' is -vastly improved," 
Happer agreed. “The fines 
leried by our supervisors at the 
French Open this year were 
way down on last year. The 
attitude of the Europeans bas 
certainly been a factor but so, 
too, has the improvement in 
the standard of officiating." 

Ken Ferrar, the chief grand 
prix supervisor, said that there 
would be no significant drop in 
the number of fines at Wim- 
bledon this year but, as be 
pointed out, “crimes" such as 
yelling at umpires and obscene 
gestures were virtually non- 
existent now. u Most of the 
offences are minor ones," 
Ferrar agreed. “We have 
much less trouble with bad 
behaviour than we used to." 

Happer is always keeping 
an eye for new technological 
aids to assist his officials and 
is looking at a system based on 
sonar sounding, as used in 
submarines, wtuch could cover 
all lines on a tennis court and 
offer officials instant replays. 

- -Certainly the days when 
umpires at tennis and cricket 
and referees at football will be 
assisted by another official 
monitoring precision technol- 
ogy by the side of the playing 
area cannot be far away. In the 
meantime, this generation of 
tennis players seem better 
suited temperamentally to 
handle the injustices of human 
error than their immediate

Becker power 

is too much given an 
for Leconte uppercut 

■ By Rex Bellamy, Tennis Correspondent 
Bean Uconte. on his 23rd J- « 

ed with a service winner and 

From CiuistopberWtiker 
Moscow - 

birthday, played a game of 
tepnis that he will want to 
forget but never will. The 
mighty Boris Becker, Wimble- 
don champion, was looking 
weary in body and mind as 
they swung into the fourth set 
of their semi-final yesterday. 
For the first time Leconte 
seemed the fitter man. But in 
the fourth game Becker was 
thrice lucky: and a break to 3-1 
gave- him what turned out to 
be. a decisive advantage. 
Becker won 6-2. . 6-4, 6r7, 60 
in 2 hours and 24 minutes. 

hi that critical game , a 
passing shot by - Becker 
bounced conveniently (for 
him) off the net cord. Then a 
blocked service return based 
on hope rather than confi- 
dence drifted lazily through 
the air like a hesitant butterfly 
before perching on a distant 
line. That gave Becker a break 
point and Leconte, ignoring 
the birthday conventions, 
promptly served a double 
fault that presented the game 
to Becker. 

A frightening 

Leconte served seven dou- 
ble faults and 11 aces, and 
Becker eight double faults and 

an ace. At 4-5 down, Becker 
conceded more than two 
points on his service for the 
first time in the match. A 
double fault even gave Le- 
conte a set point, which 
Becker saved with a thrilling, 
acrobatic stop volley. . 

Then came a tie-break m 
which Becker looked suddenly 
drained: much as Pal Cash 
had doneat a similar stage of a 
match with the resilient Le- 
conte. Maybe it -was one of 
those centre court trances that 
can ‘afflict even the best of 
players. Maybe it was just 
battle fatigue. Whatever the 
reason, Becker’s mind and 
reactions slowed down, his 
rhythm and touch deserted 
him. Two tired back-band 
volleys said it all. 

So to the fourth set — and 
that somewhat bizarre fourth 
game which restored Becker to 
at least a semblance of his 
earlier splendour when Le- 
conte was 2-5 down a support- 
er shouted “Tout n’est jamais 
perdu.” The- supporter was 
wrong. But this was a fine, 
furious 'match between two

Woosnam ‘brainstorm’ 
has James laughing 

From Mitchell Platts, Versailles 

lan Woosnam took two 
strokes to gel his (rail within 
three feet of the cup at the 1 72 
yards third hole in the Peugeot 
French Open second round, 
on the La Boulie course here, 
yesterday. He eventually 
signed for a 16 at the hole. 
Woosnam hit tbe ball eight 
times and incurred a further 
eight penalty shots for hitting 
a moving frail. 

Frustration, is the root of 
most evils in golf. The slight- 
est suggestion of a kink in the 
swing can play havoc with the 
mind. The putter which be- 
comes the traitorous imple- 
ment will inflict misery on its 

Woosnam is not the first 
golfer, neither will he be the 
last, to allow frustration to rise 
to the surface of his emotions. 
He had started atlhe 10th hole 
and. with nine holes remain- 
ing. calculated that as he was 
five over par for the champi- 
onship. he required six birdies 
to escape the halfway 

So when Woosnam. a mem- 
ber of the European team 
which won the Ryder Cup last 
September, missed from three 
feet at the third — bis twelfth — 
the cut sliced too deep into his 
morale. “I should not have 
been playing anyway. 1 have a 
bad back." he said. “The 
frustration of it all became loo 
much for me." 

At least he did complete the 
round. When Brian Barnes 
played "hockey" around a 
hole during the French Open 
in 1968. recording a score 
assessed to be 15. he consid- 
ered enough was enough and 
look his leave.- r 

Woosnam. who ironically 
finished with four birdies in 
his remaining six holes, played 

on. More importantly, he did 
not disturb the concentration 
of his playing partners. Mark 
James took 66. one of his best 
scores of the season, and 
Vicente Fernandez, of Argen- 
tina. relumed a 65. “J couldn't 
stop laughing," James said. 

John Paramor. the tourna- 
ment director, said: “There is 
no question of action being 
taken against Ian. He simply 
had a brainstorm out there, at 
one hole." 

Severiano Ballesteros- en- 
dured his frustrating moments 
too. What disturbed him was 
the shuffling of spectators in 
the gallery and the inevitable 
click of a camera, here and 
there. It upset bis concentra- 
tion and it caused him on one 
occasion, to throw his ball 
with some disgust into the 

Even so. Ballesteros edged 
closer to establishing a new 
European record of winning 
four tournaments in succes- 
sion. He scored 66 for a 
halfway aggregate of 131 and 
he now has the three strokes 
lead over Ray Stewart (66). of 
Canada, and Fernandez. 

Ballesteros bad five birdies 
to come home in 3 1 . and at the 
end his score was 26 shots 
better that that of Woosnam, 
who took 81.
