Geoffrey Howe will today 
. decide whether the Foreign 
Secretary’s peace mission to 
southern Africa should go 
ahead tomorrow as planned, 
after the snub to the British 
Government from President 
Botha of South Africa. 

The first stage of Sir 
Geoffreys diplomatic shuttle 
■ was clearly in the balance last 
night after Mr Botha had said 
he could not see him this 
week, a deeply embarrassing 
development for the 
Government. 

rMrs Thatcher and Sir Geof- 
frey. possibly in consultation 
with other senior ministers, 
will today decide whether the 
trip .should be delayed or 
whether it should continue 
without talks with Mr Botha, 
risking opposition jibes that 
Sir Geoffrey had embarked on 
a futile mission. 

Diplomatic efforts were 
continuing throughout yester- 
day to try to get the South 
African President to change 
his mind, but the Government 
was not optimistic of success 
last night 

News of Mr Botha's non- 
availability — he is believed by 
British sources to be holiday- 
ing on a farm “miles away 
from anywhere” — came on 
lop of reports that anti-apart- 
beid campaigners, including 
Bishop Tutu and Mrs Winnie 
Mandela, also intended to 
snub the mission.

obeying the whims of the 
British Prime Minister and 
Foreign Secretary would not 
help him domestically, ” a 
government source said 
yesterday. 

Mr Botha has apparently 
made clear he is willing to see 
Sir Geoffrey later tn the 
month. 

It was said yesterday that if 
Sir Geoffrey leaves tomorrow 
as planned — he had been 
expecting to spend two days in 
South Africa and another in 
Zambia — he could still see Mr 
Pik Botha, the South African 
Foreign Minister, and have 
discussions with President 
Kaunda of Zambia and possi- 
bly with Mr Robert Mugabe, 
the Prime Minister of 
Zimbabwe. 

He could then return later 
in the month for discussions 
with Mr Botha. But the Botha 
move is embarrassing for the 
Government because the prin- 


wiih neither seemed likely. 

Conservative MPs were yes- 
terday rallying to Sir Geoffrey, 
even those on the right who 
are fiercely opposed to sanc- 
tions. Sir Patrick Wall, MP for 
Beverley, said • in a BBC 
interview: “I believe every- 
thing depends upon this mis- 
sion of Sir Geoffrey's and 1 
cannot believe that Preisdent 
Botha, whom 1 know quite 
well, will be foolish enough 
not to see him." 

Mr Donald Anderson, 
Labour's foreign afairs spokes- 
man. said yesterday that he 
was not suprised by the grow- 
ing difficulties over the 
mission. 

“It has always been a for- 
lorn odyssey.” he said. “I 
would not like to see Sir 
Geoffrey humiliated because 
he is a decent man and dearly 
did not want to go in the first 
place, but he must realize he is 
seen as the emissary of Mrs 
Thatcher” 

An announcement about Sir 
Geoffrey's travel plans is ex- 
pected later today after his 
talks with the Prime Minister. 

Suggestions that he was 
ready to resign over the sanc- 
tions issue were authorit- 
atively discounted yesterday. 


retains 
title 
in style 

By Rex Bellamy 
Tennis Correspondent 

Boris Becker, of West Ger- 
many, aged 18, yesterday re- 
tained the men’s singles 
championship at Wimbledon 
by beating the United States 
and French champion, Iran 
Lendl, 6-4, 6-3, 7-5. 

—Wi nning Wimbledon this 
year was more satisfying than 
last year,” Becker said after- 

l wards. “Then I was a nobody. 

i This year I really proved that I 
j r»n play well on grass. I think 
I am playing with more power 
than last year, hot the key is 
really my bead — it's a 
hundred per cent better than 
last year, or even a couple of 
months ago.” 

Lendl came to Wimbledon 
only two weeks after the 
emotionally and physically tir- 
ing ordeal of winning the 
French championship on a 
much slower surface, shale. 
“If your priority was to con- 
centrate solely on winning 
Wimbledon, you would hare to 
skip the French,” Lendl said 
after the game. 

The mens' doubles title went 
to Joakim Nystrom and Mats 
Wi lander, who had never be- 
fore reached the doubles final 
of a grand slam tournament. 
Martina Navratilova, the 
women's singles champion, 
won the donbles title with Pam 
Shrirer for the fifth time in six 
years and Ken Flach and 
Kathy Jordan won the mixed 
event. 

The total attendance for the 
championships was a record, 
400.032. 

• Nigel Mansell of Britain, 
driving a Can on- W illiams- 
Honda, won the French Grand

Prix at Dijon by 17 seconds 
from the local hero, Alain

McLaren-TAG. It was 
Mansell's third grand prix win 
of the season and took him to 
within one point of the cham- 
pionship leader. 

• Severiano Ballesteros, of 


Spam, won the French Open 
golf tournament in Paris with 
a 19-nnder-par total of 269. 
Vincente Fernandez, of Argen- 
tina, was second with 271. 
Nick Faldo, of Britain, was 
three shots behind Fernandez, 
in fourth place.

that was 
Armero 

From Geoffrey Matthews 
Bogota 

..In the ntosi dramatic and' 
emotional moment of his visit 
io Colombia, the Pope yester- 
day prayed in the “immense 
cemetery” of Armero, the 
town that vanished in floods 
and mud avalanches when the 
Nevado del Ruiz volcano 
erupted last November. 

Standing on a simple wood- 
en platform where the central 
plaza used to be. he read an 
oration for the estimated 
25.000 souls who perished. 

He then walked to a con- 
crete cross at the site of the 
parish church. He embraced 
the cross, knelt and bowed his 
head in silent prayer. 

On the way to Armero, the 
Pope flew low in an Air Force 
helicopter over other towns 
affected by the disaster to bless 
them. From the air he saw the 
full extent of the damage 

Later be flew to Lerida, 
where he was greeted by 
President Betancur amid 
scenes of near-hysteria. One 
distraught woman . survivor 
held up a scrawled message: 
“Bring back my child.”

• The Bishop of Durham, the 
Right Rev David Jenkins, 
faced his critics in rhe church 
and triumphed over them 
yesterday at the General Svik, 
ocf of the Church of England in’ 
York. He received a long and 
loud ovation after a bold and 
challenging account of his 
doctrinal opinions, which had 
landed him in so much trouble 
in the past. 

The Synod was debating a 
report from the bishops, com- 
missioned last year after the 
angry controversy that sur- 
rounded the Bishop's appoint- 
ment to Durham in 1 984. 

He came very close to 
accusing his opponents ot 
idolatry. The God they 
seemed to believe in was 
either a cultic idol or “the very 
devil”, he declared. He ac- 
cused them of believing in a 
“divine laser beam” by which 
God had arranged the virginal 
conception of Christ and the 
resurrection, and of insisting 
that only that belief was 
tolerable in the church. 

His central argument, which 
the Synod received in rapt 
silence, was that people would 
not believe in a God who 
worked miracles sometimes, 
yet stood by and did nothing 
miraculous to prevent Ausch- 


witz and Hiroshima. He said 
he had hesitated a great deal 
before deciding to make that 
point. When he finished a 
large part of the Synod stood 
to applaud him, including 
many of his critics. 

He declared: “We are faced 
with the claim that God is

prepared to work knock-down 
physical miracles in order to 
let a select number of people 
into the secret of his Incarna- 
tion, Resurrection, and salva- 
tion, but he is not prepared to 
use such methods in order to 
deliver from Auschwitz; pre- 
vent Hiroshima; overcome 
famine, or bring about a 
bloodless transformation of 
apartheid. Such a God is 
surely a cultic idol. That is to 
say he is a false and mis- 
developed picture of the true 
and gracious God, drawn up 
by would-be worshippers, who 
have gone dangerously 
astray” 

Such a God “prefers a few 
selected worshippers to all the 
sufferers of our world”. Such a 
God “is certainly not worth 
believing in”. The Bishop,

Two health officers who 
boarded the cruise liner. Can- 
berra. to investigate an infec- 
tion which struck more than 
150 passengers will be joined 
by a third expert flown from 
Britain when the ship calls in 
at a Spanish port today. 

The outbreak of sickness, 
which happened when the P & 
O ship was on a seven-day trip 
to the Canaries. Spain and 
Portugal last week, is the latest 
and most serious to occur on 
the last three cruises, the 
company confirmed 
yester day. 

Warning 
by Aquino 
on revolt 

By Our Foreign Staff 

President Corazon Aquino 
of the Philippines yesterday 
warned supporters of ex-Presi- 
dent Marcos who declared a 
breakaway government in 
Manila that arrests would be 
made if there were any signs of 
violence. 

Cheered by Marcos sup- 
porters. Mr Arturo Tolentino 
yesterday took an oath as 
acting president of the break- 
away government. 

Mrs Aquino, visiting the 
southern island of Mindanao, 
said she was sure Mr Marcos's 
supporters tipped him off 
about her absence. She had 
ordered arrests “the minute 
they show signs of using 
violence”. , _

Food and water supplies on 
the 45.000-tonne liner had 
been monitored but tests had 
proved negative, the company 
said. “We would not have 
sailed if we thought there was 
a health risk ” 

There had been isolated 
cases of similar illness on 
board since the liner called at 
Port Said last May and passen- 
gers went, ashore on 
excursions. 

When the liner arrived at 
Southampton on Saturday, 
medical officers from the port 
authority went on board to 
investigate the infection, after 


being alerted by a radio mes- 
sage from the ship's medical 
staff. 

However they were unable 
to trace the source of the 
infection, which caused vom- 
iting and diarrhoea lasting for 
24 hours, among 150 of the 
1.600 passengers, and three 
crew. __ 

The medical officers sailed 
with the ship and its new 
complement of holiday-mak- 
ers when it left for a two-week 
cruise on Saturday night. 

The ship is due to arrive in 
Malaga today, its first port of 
call on the new cruise.

ery' and seemed to be speaking 
with great passion. 

He included a jibe at the 
Synod for its. failure, the day 
before, to agree io a measure 
permitting visiting women 
priests to operate in England. 
The Synod should not be 
“bullied, frightened or dis- 
mayed by backward-looking 
references to tradition or 
bound by a past in which God 
no longer lives. 

“He lives now and for the 
future. Above all we need to 
pray very earnestly that God 
will, of His very great mercy, 
spare us the ultimate humilia- 
tion and honor of discussing 
about him and deciding about 
the ordering of a party of his 
church in ways which deny his 
mystery, his freedom, his infi- 
nite openness, and his incredi- j 
bly suffering love." 

The Synod is to return to | 
the issue of women priests 
tomorrow but it has become 
clear that after the defeat of 
the measure in two of the three 
houses in the Synod, there is 
now a much greater reluctance 
to proceed further.

to step up 
dispute 

By Peter Evans, Home 

Affairs Correspondent 

Prison officers leaders have 
threatened to spread industri- 
al action to other jails if talks 
today with Home Office offi- 
cials about the dispute at 
Risley Remand Centre, 
Cheshire, fail. 

“We are not very optimistic 
in the least.” Mr John Bartell. 
chairman of the Prison Offi- 
cers Association (POAk said 
after a two hour meeting of its 
national executive yesterday. 

“We are advising our 
24.000 members to stand by 
for further instructions. Ev- 
erything will depend on the 
outcome of tomorrow's meet- 
ing. but if talks fail the 
instructions to our industrial 
action sub-committee are 
quite clear. 

“They are to escalate action 
to other establishments and 
lake whatever steps are neces- 
sary to support our colleagues 
at Risley Remand Centre.” 

The dispute at Risley is over 
plans to use a high security 
wing lo house “overflow” 
prisoners, and to move two 
prison officers there to guard 
them. 

The officers claim that the 
move would result in unsafe 
manning levels in the rest of 
the women's wing. Fifty offi- 
cers have already walked our 
in protest. 

The clash coincides wiih the 
first results of a ballot on 
calling off the Iasi industrial 
action, since suspended, taken 
by prison officers. According 
to a POA official, initial 
indications are that most were 
in favour of ending it. 

A Home Office spokesman 
said last night that it had no 
comment to make until after 
the meeting. The Prison De- 
partment had been assured by 
the POA that no further 
industrial action would be 
taken, pending the outcome.

Radio beckons the man in the street 


By Patricia Clough 

Twenty-six supposedly ordi- 
nary people are polishing their 
wits hi the hopes of becoming a 
-man-in-the-street” panellist 
on Radio Four's Any 
Questions ? 

The staff of Any Questions? 
will be auditioning the candi- 
dates in London on July 8 for 
possible places on the pro- 
gramme, after critics ms that 
it has become too dominated 
by politicians plugging the 
party fine. 

Among the hopefuls are the 
director of a military vehicle 
museum, a Norfolk farmer, a 
psychiatrist, the chairman of a 
water hoard, a writer, a busi- 
ness man and a couple of 
lectnrers. 

It alt started quite uninten- 
tionally on Radio Four's feed- 
back programme in February 
with a remark by Carole 
Stone, the programme's pro- 


ducer, in response to sugges- 
tions that she include more 
“ordinary” people. 

“If yon can find me a *man in 
the street’ who is witty, articu- 
late, sunnsing, knowledgeable 
and who will answer a question 
spontaneously and have back- 
ground knowledge, then I’ll 
consider him, even if no-one's 
ever beard of him.” she said. 

Before she knew where she 
was she bad received 140 
letters, half of them from 
people proposing themselves 
and half from people suggest- 
ing friends or spouses. “At 
first I was simply going to send 
them polite thank-you slips 
but then I thought ‘maybe 
there really is someone lurking 
out there who would be good 
for the programme. Let's find 
out their backgrounds'.” 

Being a panellist is a lot 
harder than many people 
think, she said. “You hare got 
io have very firm opinions on 


ail topics of current affairs, 
both national and internation- 
al. Yon can't be woolly.” 

She emphasized that the 
programme invited many 
prominent people from various 
walks of life, some of whom 
were not always very good. 
Politicians at least were al- 
ways articulate. “They make 
sure they have an opinion on 
everything.” 

But on dose inspection a 
number of the 20 men and six 
women, candidates do not seem 
quite as “ordinary” as every- 
body else. 

There is Mr Raymond 
Moubiot, a breezy, talkative 
man who turns out to be not 
only the chairman of Camp- 
bells GK, the soup firm, but 
also the president of Mr 
Michael Heseltine'S Henley 
Conservative Association, the 
chairman of the Oxford and 
Buckinghamshire Euro con- 
stituency and an experienced 


public and political speaker. 

“Men and women iu the 
street come in all shapes and 
sizes and I certainly consider 
myself to be one.” be says. 
Although be Is active in poli- 
tics, be says he has no axe to 
grind. 

Another strong contender is 
Mr Kevin Carey, of 
Hnrstpierpouit, who is blind. 
A former president of tbe 
Cambridge Union and editor 
of Varsity, the Cambridge 
University paper, and a one- 
. time BBC radio journalist, he 
is now tbe much-travelled 
Hiaiiflggr of overseas services 
in the Royal Commonwealth 
Society for the Blind and 
prospective SDP candidate for 
Brighton Pavilion. 

Carole Stone admits that 
the people they choose, if any, 
are likely to be far from 
ordinary, but “the point is that 
I would never have beard of 
them otherwise,” she says. 


By Philip Webster, ChifetPdlitical Correspondent 


The Malaysian Govern- 
ment last night rejected a 
personal plea by Mrs Margaret 
Thatcher to spare the life of 
Kevin Barlow, the Briton due 
to be hanged late last night. 

After an appeal from Mr 
Barlow's mother. Barbara, the 
Prime Minister sent a person- 
al note to the Malaysian 
Government asking for clem- 
ency on humanitarian 
grounds. 

But all hope for Mr Barlow 
appeared lo have gone after 
the Governor of Penang, re- 
sponding to Mrs Thatchers 
plea, sent a message through 
the Foreign Office last evening 
which said the country's par- 
dons board was satisfied that 
the necessary legal process had 
been observed and saw no 
cause for reversing its 
decision. 

Mr Barlow, aged 28 and 
born in Stoke-on-Trent, who 
was given the mandatory- 
death sentence for heroin 
smuggling, was due to go to 
the gallows with Brian Cham- 
bers, an Australian, aged 29. 

Mrs Thatchers appeal, un- 
precedented in her term as 
Prime Minister, was delivered 
yesterday morning by 
Britain's High Commissioner 
in Malaysia. Mr David 
Gillmore. 

A Whitehall source, refer- 
ring to Mrs Barlow's plea, 
said: “It was a mother to 
mother appeal and the Prime 
Minister has responded on 
that basis.” 

On Saturday Mr Bob 
Hawke, the Australian Prime 
Minister, made a personal 
appeal for clemency 

Mrs Barlow, who emigrated 
to Australia from Stoke-on- 
Trent with her husband and 
children 15 years ago, also 
appealed to the King of Ma- 
laysia. and the Queen, for 
help. 

The two men were arrested 
in Penang in November, 1 983. 
when 1 80 grammes of heroin 
was found in their luggage. 
Drugs trafficking carries an 
automatic death sentence in 
Malaysia. They received man- 
datory death sentences

the help of the Army, success-

tionalists apart during an 
Orangemen's parade through 
two overwhelmingly Catholic 
districts of Portadown, Co

including one who had a dart 
embedded in his neck. 

The RUC said that even 
before the parade began the 
police were verbally and phys- 
ically abused by the loyalists. 
Outside a church service, men 
wearing Orange regalia over- 
turned a police Land-Rover 
with officers inside it. and 
loyalist crowds also damaged 
property near a Catholic 
church. Plastic bullets were 
fired to disperse them.

Foreign aid to poor 
^wasted on useless 
schemes’, MPs told 



By Sheila Gann, Political Staff 


Britain's aid to developing 
countries is often wasted on 
useless schemes that do noth- 
ing to help the poorest people. 

Details of some of the worst 
aid schemes have been given 
by the Independent Group on 
British Aid to support its 
evidence to the Commons’ all- 
party foreign affairs select 
committee. Those include: 

• £35 million wasted on roll- 
ing slock for the Sicartsa steel 
mill in Mexico; 

• unpalatable groundnuts 
grown in southern Sudan; 

• 50 rotting buses sent to 
Zambia; 

• expensive gas turbines sent 

to Egypt; , , 

•the Westland helicopter deal 
with the Indian Government; 

• bagging equipment to 
Bangalore. ...... 

The group, which includes 
academics and voluntary 
agencies who monitor British 
overseas aid. is concerned 


over the Government's plans out its aims. 


ment for leaving the adminis- 
tration of aid to help fight the 
famine in Ethiopia to a third 
secretary at the British 
Embassy. 

Its evidence says: “However 
committed and able be or she 
may be. the fact remains that 
she/he has very little status, 
not only in terms of the 
mission but also with regard 
to the aid community at 
laige — and this in a major 
crisis situation in which the 
stakes, political as well as 
humanitarian, were unusually 
high." 

In spite of previous recom- 
mendations from the select 
committee, the group said that 
not enough effort had been to 
improve the quality or quanti- 
ty of staff in embassies who 
managed the schemes. 

British aid policy at present 
was not dear, the group said. 
It is urging the Government to 
produce a White Paper to set 


to get volunlajy agencies to The quality of the aid had 


take a bigger role in helping declined even more severely 


poor countries. 


than the quantity, it oondud- 


Professor Charles Elliott, ed. That was partly due to the 
the group’s chairman and drop in the number of profes- 


former director of Christian 
Aid said that except for 
Oxfhm and the Save the 
Children Fund, the voluntary 
agencies did not have the 
technical competence to han- 


siona) advisors in the minis- 
try. British taxpayers surely 
had the right to expect the 
sdentific units to have proper 
scientific leadership, it stated. 

“More particularly, we re- 


dje properly the aid they at gret the virtual disappearance 


present receive. 

In its written evidence the 
group criticized the Govem- 


of such advice in the natural 
resources sector, especially in 
view of assurances by both the 


Minister for Overseas Devel- 
opment (Mr Timothy Raison) 
and the Prime Minister that 
the Government accord this 
sector particular importance.” 

Dr Elliott blamed the 
failings in the aid programme 
on a lack of proper appraisal 
of schemes and lack of assess- 
ment to discover who would 
benefit. In some cases British 
aid had even put some of the 
poorest people out of work. 

He gave as an example a j 
decision to send automatic 
bagging equipment to a fertil- 
izer plant in Bangalore. That 
scheme enabled the plant to 
dismiss the workers. 

Dr Elliott cited the West- 
land helicopter deal with India 
as “almost a classic example 
of bad aid badly handled”. 

He said: “When the Indian 
Government did not want the 
Westland helicopters they 
were told (fay the British 
Government) if they did not 
take them, their aid allocation 
would be cut by the equivalent 
amount — which was £65 
million.” 

Dr Paul Mosley, of Man- 
chester University and a 
member of the group, told the 
committee that 50 buses were 
sent to Zambia, in spite of the 
High Commission warning 
against the project. The buses 
fell apart within a year, much 
to the dismay of the Zambian 
Government, because aid offi- 
cials did not take into account 
the rough roads.

the council.

Pressure on open land in 
central Berkshire is acute 
since so much of the county is 
built up, while to the east and 
west it is protected by areas of 
special scenic value. 


Remand Centre, Cheshire, has 
once more put before the 
Home Secretory, Mr Douglas 
HunL a dispute he thought he 
had left behind. 

The issue is the same as in 
May when widespread pro- 
tests left a trail of damage in 
prisons: how to achieve appro- 
priate staffing levels? 

A team of 12 assistant 

S nors was running the 
e wing of the remand 
centre yesterday after a walk- 
out on Friday by 50 women 
officers in protest at the 
staffing level. The action con- 
tinued through the weekend 
with a work to rule. 

Yesterday the Home Office 
accused the local branch of the 
Prison Officers’ Association of 
“a flagrant breach” of newly 
agreeadispute procedures. Of- 
ficials of the association in 
Risley said their members 
were victims of a technical 
lockout 

There are 133 women pris- 
oners on remand in the wing. 
Yesterday, after reports that 
some had barricaded them- 
selves into a dormitory, the 
Home Office insisted that the 
situation was nonnaL 
The previous action in April 
and May showed how suscep- 
tible the overcrowded prison 
system is to pressure. Distur- 
bances spread rapidly. Severe 
damage was caused by riots at 
Northeye Prison to East Sus- 
sex. 

The dispute, like the present 
one. was over manning levels. 
After intervention by Mr 


Permanent Under-Secretary, 
wrote to the POA general 
secretory. Mr David Evans, on 
May 13. setting out a formula 
that has become crucial to the 
present dispute. 

It said: “Pending the possi- 
ble introduction of a national 
disputes procedure, where 
governors or local branches 
seek to alter existing agree- 
ments they should first gj ve 1 4 
days' notice of their intention 
to do so to the other parry(ies) 
to the agreement, ’ 

“In the event of disagree- 
ment about the proposed 
change it will be open to either 
side...to seek the intervention 
of a higher level (regional 
office or the appropriate NEC 
member). But the aim of both 
sides will be for local disputes 
to be settled locally.” 

The Risley dispute, accord- 
ing to the POA, is over an 
attempt to deploy staff from 
the main prison to man a unit 
to cater for overcrowding. 

Mr John Banell POA na- 
tional chairman, said on BBC 
Radio yesterday that women 
staff at Risley felt that would 
make things worse. 

Before attending a branch 
meeting they were told that 
they might be dismissed from 
the service if they would not 
work normally. That sparked 
the walkout. 

The Home Offiire said 
yesterday that the Risley offi- 
cers began their action before 
negotiations could go to re- 
gional levels as laid down in 
the procedures.

Tbe creation of tbe SDP can 
therefore be seen as the justifi-

the form that that feAp-

Steel's sense of lUditfeal 
strategy. 

He discouraged Labour dis-

would break away from La- 
bour if they were setting up a 
new party. 

But once the new party was 
established be was concerned 
that it should have tbe closest ■ 
links with the Liberals, 

. That strategy is being sub- 
jected to its severest test with 
the dispute over defence poli- 
cy. I suspect that Mr Steel is 
characteristically more con- 
cerned to get agreement within 
the Alliance than 0 rer the 
precise nature of that 
agreement. -

Solicitors want strict 
controls on building

Sodeiv todfr.J’L; ,H W ^nict of interest that oper-

Kjwttes and estate agents 

amS r Ihcy J can Y oul convey- 
f a ^ g under Proposed new 

ihe n ^Sj d l ns wper t0 P^ 
the society has recommended 

a senes of amendments to the 

wm S” 6 Socfeties Bfll which 
would incorporate added pro- 
tttdion for the consumer. 

The society wants those 
financial institutions permit- 
ted to undertake conveyanc- 
ing to be subject to the same 
roles as solicitors on conflict 
of interests, accounts, interest 
on clients’ money, commis- 
sions and office supervision. 

It also wants to ensure that 
splicuors employed by the 
financial institutions and 
conveyancors are not subject 
to improper commercial pres- 
sures by their employers. 

The society’s amendments, 
aimed at ensuring that the 
financial institutions compete 
for conveyancing on equal 
terms with solicitors, have the 
backing of Lord Templeman, 
the former Law Lord. They 
will be proposed by Lord 
Foot, the Liberal peer. 

In^ debate on the Bill last 
week’ Lord Tern pieman said' 
that the building societies 
should be restrained from 


public, and where they may 
have- an advantage over 
solicitors. 

The Law Society wants the 
Bill to oblige the Lord Chan- 
cellor to make rules prohibit- 
ing any financial institution 
from offering conveyancing 
where it is also giving a person 
a loan secured on the same 
property. 

At the same time, the rules 
should prohibit any convey- 
ancing where the institution or 
any associated body is provid- 
ing estate agency services. 

The society said that many 
of the lending institutions now 
owned estate agencies, while 
the building societies would be 
permitted to acquire or engage 
in estate agency business. 

Solicitors are forbidden 
from acting for vendor and 
purchaser in any transaction. 
Similarly, institutions offering 
estate agency and conveyanc- 
ing should not act for both 
sides, the society said. 

Nor should estate agents 
acting for a vendor be allowed 
to offer conveyancing to a 
buyer on the sale of that 
house, as suggested by the 
Royal Institution of Chartered 
Surveyors. 

The society also warns of 
possible conflicts of interests 
where sellers are in arrears 


with mortgage payments and 
if the conveyancing is carried 
out by the institution offering 
the loan. 

While vendors wanted the 
best possible price for their 
house, and to secure as large 
an equity from the sale as 
possible, the lending institu- 
tion wanted to recover its 
security as quickly as possible. 
The rules should prohibit 
conveyancing in such circum- 
stances, the society said. 

• House prices increased by 
more than 12 per cent in the 
year to the end oflast month, 
according to the Halifax 
Building Society's latest house 
price index, published today 
(Christopher Warman writes). 

The society said that prices 
had increa&cd by 5.4 per cent 
in the latest three months, 
compared with 5 per cent in 
the quarter to the end of May, 
showing that house price infla- 
tion has accelerated further. 

“Lower borrowing costs, 
falling retail price inflation 
and buoyant earnings growth 
have boosted demands for 
funds,” it said. 

The Halifax survey showed 
that house price inflation was 
now about four times the rate 
of retail price inflation. It 
forecast that house prices 
would rise by more than 
1 1 per cent in 1 986 as a whole. 


Private schools to 
offer work skills 

By Lucy Hodges, Education Correspondent 


Private schools, traditional 
bastions of classics and sci- 
ence education, are proposing 
to introduce their pupils to 
' craft, design and technology in 
a campaign to equip them for 
work in industry. 

The umbrelia body that 
supervises the independent 
sector is to set up a centre for 
design and technology to de- 
velop lessons in the subject 
and prepare a new sixth form 
examination. 

Independent schools have 
historically lagged ' behind 
state schools in the teaching of 
craft and technology, though 
some, such as Oundle and 
Radley, have impressive 
workshops -and . encourage 
•their pupHstodevetop skills in 
those subjects. • 

:1b both sectors, however. . 
the subjects have tended lo be 
taught to the less able. It is 
significant that the indepen- 
dent sector is not included in 
the Technical and Vocational 
Education Initiative, which 
has become a national pro- 
gramme to be introduced in 
all slate secondary schools at a 
cost of £900 million. 

Most public school boys 
receive some craft lessons, 
mostly in woodwork and met- 
alwork, and girls are likely to 
be exposed to home econom- 
ics, but such subjects are 
usually seen as marginal, com- 
. pared -to parts of the curricu- 
lum such as mathematics and 
science. 

Mr Arthur Hearnden, secre- 


tary of the Independent 
Schools Joint Council, hopes 
that craft and technology work 
will be closely allied to micro- 
elec ironies, which is now firm- 
ly on the public school 
timetable.’ 

It is thought that the pro- 
posed centre might work on 
similar lines to the Indepen- 
dent Schools Micrelectronics 
Centre outside Oxford. 

The independent schools 
are hoping to attract money 
for the centre from trusts in 
the City, as was done for the 
introduction of science in 
their schools in the 1950s. 

“If an industrial trust were 
prepared to support us, I think 
we could do an awful lot to 
lead the way in bringing the 
subject into the curriculum “ 
Mr Hearnden said. 

He hopes that the centre 
will develop a new A/S level 
examination in design and 
technology. The A/S level 
examination, announced by 
Sir Keith Joseph, former Sec- 
retary of State for Education 
and Science, is worth half an A 
level, and is designed to 
broaden the sixth-form 
curriculum. 

Courses begin in 1987 with 
the first examinations being 
taken in 1989. It is envisaged, 
that students will take two A 
levels and two A/S levels, 
preferably in contrasting ar- 
eas, so that they study science 
and technology as well as arts 
subjects. 


British team faces 
Everest challenge 


A British expedition will 
attempt to climb the uncon- 
quered north-east ridge of Mt 
Everest later this month. 

.The team includes seven 
former SAS members and a 
group of British mountain- 
eers, led by John “Brummie” 
Stokes, a former SAS officer 
who reached the summit of 
Everest on the British Army 
expedition in 1976. 

The north-east ridge of Ev- 
erest has already defeated two 
British climbing teams The 
first, led “Alpine-style by 
Chris Bonnington without ine 
use of supplementary oxygen. 


By Ronald Faux 

ended with the death of two 
climbers. 

The attempt by the 18- 
strong team will use oxygen on 
the higher reaches of the ridge. 
Exclusive reports on their 
progress will appear in The 
Times. 

“We have learned from 
experience of earlier attempts 
and expect to be in position at 
the right time and with, the 
right back up to succeed,” Mr 
Stokes said. . . 

The team is negotiating 
with the Chinese Government 
for permission lo transmit live 
television reports by satellite 
from the mountain. 


College of 
Air for 
workers 

By Our Education 
Correspondent 

Britain’s most ambitious at- 
tempt to educate and train its 
nnderequipped workforce, 
through a College of the Air, is 
expected to be announced in 
the next two weeks by Lord 
Young of Graffham, Secretary 
of State for Employment 

The venture, which has been 
upder discussion for months 
and will operate on similar 
lines to the Open University, 
aims to provide people over the 
age of 16 with farther educa- 
tion and vocational training 
through courses on radio and 
television. 

Britain has one of the least 
qualified workforces of any 
Western industrialized coun- 
try. Forty per cent of school 
leavers have tittle to offer in 
the way of examination results 
and 80 per cent of employees 
receive no job training. The 
College of the Air will aim to 
change that. 

Courses, which will be sob- 
degree level, wfll range from 
literacy and numeracy for 
those who missed out on die 
basics of education, to retrain- 
ing for teachers. 

The idea is the brainchild of 
Mr Geoffrey Holland, director 
of the Manpower Services 
Commission, who feels that 
die problem of Britain's un- 
trained workforce conld per- 
haps be cracked by using 
television because it goes into 
most homes. 

The college will be indepen- 
dent, though the commission 
will have a stake in it, and it is 
hoped that in tune it wfll he 
self-supporting. 

The Government's plan is 
for the college to act as a 
catalyst, and co-ordinate the 
learning . materials which al- 
ready exist for adults. It will 
not be a huge organization 
awarding its own degrees like 
the Open University. 

Instead viewers will register 
as students with the local 
further or higher education 
college and receive qualifica- 
tions given by existing bodies. 

It should, therefore, be rela- 
tively inexpensive to run, and 
the Government hopes that 
industry and commerce will 
sponsor their own courses. It 
also hopes that all four televi- 
sion channels will be used and 
that they will be prepared to 
offer “notice-board” slots dur- 
ing peak-time viewing.

Traders turn to private crime patrols 


By Peter Evans 
Home Affairs 
Correspondent 

A privately owned anti- 
crime patrol, paid for by local 
traders, is doe to begin opera- 
tions at 4pm today in the 
streets of Wateriooville, near 
Portsmouth. 

Mr Richard Watts, a former 
policeman, will share duties 
with two other uniformed pa- 
trol men until 6am, keeping an 
eye on the premises of 30 
businesses who have so for 
subscribed to his “Area Watch 
Alert”. 

The patrols wfll help protect 
the shops and offices of cli- 
ents, who are each paying 
about £500 a year for the 


service. “The police can't do 
the job that we do because they 
are shortstaffed,” Mr Watts 
said. 

His patrolmen, one of whom 
is a former commando, will 
work in co-operation with the 
local police and will also act to 
help combat general crime. 

Mr Watts said: “If someone 
was misbehaving we would 
alert the necessary authorities 
via radio to base control, from 
where a phone call would be 
made to police headquarters. 
We have die power of citizen's 
arrest” 

Asked what they would do if 
they saw someone assaulting 
an elderly’ woman, he said: 
“Detain them until the police 
arrive.” 


Mr Watts and his men will 
be on general patrol on the 
streets and in the shopping 
precincts of W'aterhiovflle 
(population 50,000) nntif the 
public houses dose. Then they 
will start checking clients' 
doors, windows and property. 

They will wear uniforms of 
black shoes, black trousers, 
blue ties and white shirts, with 
a badge bearing the “Area 
Watch Alert” logo on their left 
breast pocket In colder weath- 
er the team will wear navy blue 
sweaters and navy waterproof 
jackets, also with the logo 
displayed. Each man will have 
a whistle. 

Mr Watts said that his wife 
would operate a two-way radio 
so that the police, ambulance 


or fire service could be notified 
quickly if necessary. 

One client Mr Ricky Lopez, 
who owns a menswear shop, 
said: “When I phone the 
police they come as soon as 
they ran, but if there is 
anything else on they do take a 
little while to get here. Where- 
as if we have someone hi the 
town area on watch patrol they 
will be here almost 
immediately.” 

Mr Watts, who hopes to 
extend the service to other 
local shopping centres, said 
that he had been approached 
also by a local residents* 
association to mount patrols 
on Friday nights to help to 
prevent problems with youths 
at a local disco. 


Parents of 
shot boy 
to seek 
£15,000 

By Craig Seton 

The family of John 
Shorihouse. aged five, who 
was shot dean by a police 
marksman, are involved in 
talks to secure up to £15,000 
compensation for his death. 

Mrs Jacqueline Shortbouse, 
aged 26, the boy’s mother, and 
Mr John Shorthouse, aged 26, 
his father, who is in prison, 
have so fer received £3,500, 
the maximum payable under 
the Fatal Damages Act. 

On Friday, Police Constable 
Brian Chester, aged 35, was 
cleared by a jury at Stafford 
Crown Court of the boy’s 
manslaughter during a police 
raid last August on bis 
parents* maisonette. 

With the trial over a cam- 
paign is being mounted to 
persuade West Midlands Po- 
lice to agree to an improved 
compensation award. 

Mr Anthony Beaumont- 
Dark. the Conservative MP 
for Selly Oak. Birmingham, 
where the family lived at the 
time of the raid, said yester- 
day: “I hope the police author- 
ity can negotiate a more 
reasonable sum without the 
need of having to go to law. 
£3,500 is too little. 

Mr Beaumont-Dark be- 
lieves that a sum of about 
£10,000 would be reasonable. 
The Shorthouse family is un- 
derstood to want up to 
£15,000. 

Mr Shorthouse is serving a 
five-year prison sentence for 
his pan in a raid on a 
restaurant in South Wales. 

Jester to woo 
US tourists 

Nicholas Jones, aged 25, 
who is setting up as a jester 
with the help of a £40-a-week 
grant under the Enterprise 
Allowance Scheme, flies to 
New York today to promote 
the Ryedale Festival, North 
Yorkshire, which starts on 
July 26. 


‘Dear MP’ 
letters 
set policy 

By Angelfo Johnson 

A boom in personal letter 
writing is putting extra weight 
on MPs' mailbags, with each 
member of the House receiv- 
ing more than 10,000 letters a 
year, according to a survey 
published today. 

The good news is that three- 
quarters of the MPs inter- 
viewed by the Letter Writing 
Bureau said that they were 
influenced by what was writ- 
ten to them and 27 per cent 
had received a letter that had 
helped to change government 
policy. 

This healthy reaction be- 
tween politicians and voters 
was disclosed after 196 of 
Westminster’s 650 MPs filled 
in questionnaires about the 
kind of letters they receive 
daily. 

• Each MP gets an average 33 
letters a day and 84 per cent of 
them said they acted on the 
complaints or suggestions. 
Those from the South-west 
received most, with 42 letters 
each; MPs from Northern 
Ireland received only 21 a day. 

Housing is the most com- 
mon constituency matter, 
with social security benefits 
coming a close second 
Education and the teachers’ 
dispute came third; unem- 
ployment and taxes were low- 
er down the list 
Women, it seems, are just as 
prepared as men to put pen to 
paper, the survey showed, and 
nearly all MPs said they 
received correspondence from 
young children and teenagers. 

One MP said: “A child once 
asked me to help increase his 
pocket money following my 
visit to his school”. 

A few MPs received propos- 
als of marriage aud death 
threats and one constituent 
wanted an audience with the 
Queen.

Fast cars 
‘safest’ in 
overtaking 

A survey of British driving 
habits has shown that 40 per 
cent of overtaking by heavy 
goods vehicles poses the risk 
of an accident, while the safest 
overtaking is done by high- 
performance BMW, Porsche 
and Ferrari cars. 

These preliminary findings, 
by an inquiry team at 
Cranfield Institute of -Tech- 
nology. near Bedford, are 
based on video recordings of 
more than 5,000 overtaking 
manoeuvres ou A-class roads 
in Oxfordshire and 

Bedfordshire. 

Mr Don Hams, a research 
assistant at the institute, said: 
“Lorry drivers were definitely 
much less safe on overtaking." 

He said that dangerous 
overtaking tends to take place 
at the lower speeds, between 
30 and 40 miles an hour, when 
there is a build-up of frustra- 
tion. 

“The safest overtaking was 
done by high-performance 
cars. 


Sinclair in 
launch of 
new firm 

Sir Clive Sinclair, the home 
computer manufacturer who 
survived a financial crisis in 
April by selling his ailing 
computer business, will an- 
nounce the launch of his new' 
business today (Bill 
Johnstone, Technology Corre- 
spondent, writes). 

He is to make microchips 
which will miniaturize even 
further the design of comput- 
ers. televisions and other con- 
sumer products. 

The new company, to be 
called Anamartic, will design 
and possibly manufacture ad- 
vanced microchip memories 
for use in computers and 
telephone equipment Proto- 
types of the new chips have 
already been made. 

The project will be financed 
from funds raised through a 
prospectus to be launched this 
week. The idea was mooted by 
Sir Give in March of last year, 
before his computer and elec- 
tric car businesses were hit by 
a financial crisis. 


£36m cost to Telecom 
of call-box vandalism 

By Nicholas Beeston 


British Telecom expects to 
lose £36 million this year 
through vandals damaging 
pay telephones and stealing 
coins from call boxes. 

Last year the company lost 
£18 million in damaged 
equipment .and the same 
amount again in lost revenues 
because of stolen coins from 
public call boxes. 

Despite recommendations 


from Oftel. the watchdog for 
the telecommunications in- 
dustry, that the public call box 
service should be improved, 
Telecom says that the battle 
against vandalism in the inner 
cities is difficult to beat. 

“It is our major headache,” 
Telecom admitted. “Increas- 
ingly telephone boxes are be- 
ing vandalized by professional 
thieves." 


Whisky glut bodes ill 
for UK barley growers 

By John Young, Agriculture Correspondent 

Growers are likely to have 
difficulties finding buyers for 
this years crop of malting 
barley as a result of the 
'depressed demand frombrew- 
ers and distillers and increas- 
ing foreign competition. 

Excessive stocks of whisky , 
coupled with its declining 
popularity, reduced distillers’ 
demand for barley by 12 per 
cent between 1980 and 1984- 


The Home Grown Cereals 
Authority said there was little 
evidence to suggest that that 
trend had been reversed last 
year or was likely to be 
reversed this year. 

■Beer production in the 
United Kingdom was down by 
0.7 per cent last year to 
36,500.000 barrels and has 
dropped by a further 0.7 per

‘ General Synod: debate on bishops 9 report 


Central beliefs rest 


on more than history, 
Archbishop declares 


By Angella Johnson and Alan Wood 


The Archbishop of Canter- 
bury. Dr Robert Runcie. has 
called for unity within the 
Anglican Church, after a re- 
port on the nature of Christian 
-belief from the House of 
: Bishops. 

He said that although the 
report affirmed the common 
historical belief of Christianity 
-it Teft room for debate and 
exploration on Christian 
doctrines. 

Speaking at the General 
Synod of the Church of En- 
gland in York yesterday, he 
said that the House of 
Bishops' report on the nature 
of Christian belief showed that 
they were united in believing 
that Jesus lived, died and rose 
again. 

The report was clear that 
historical fact did matter. 
There could not be authentic 
Christian faith without his- 
torical events. 

Most Christians throughout 
history had accepted the emp- 
ty tomb and the virginal 
conception as historical facts. 
Any other interpretation was a 
departure from that held in 
the universal church. 


ward with freedom and integ- 
rity. We need to respect one 
another's right to occupy such 
a path. We need to be patient 
and sensitive with one 
another’s difficulties. We grow 
in freedom." 

. In what might be described 
as a plea for unity within the 
church. Dr Runcie told the 
Synod that there was nothing 
new about doctrinal conflict in 
the church. 

“We must not be too quick 
on the draw in gunning down 
what seems to be heresy, but 
explorers will only receive the 
patient attention they deserve 
when they refuse to be lone 
pioneers, and declare their 
solidarity with the 
householder’s faith, when they 
have not only voices eager to 
speak, and ears close enough 
to the ground to catch and 
cultivate the shy murmuring 
of the people of God. 

“The bishops have not writ- 


considerate in expression, 
prudent in presentation, and 
resistant to the mere itch of 
rashness. They will know as 
we do that few are helped to 
think through a problem if 
their minds are subjected to 
violent shocks."

free for their own adventure of 
exploration into God, they 
actually will do that best from 
within the community with 
structure, shape and commit-

By ■ Our Religious Affairs 
Correspondent 

The cause of female ordina- 
tion suffered its most serious 
reverse so far at the bands of 
the General Synod at the 
weekend, when the Women 
Ordained Abroad measure 
failed to reach the required 
two-thirds majority. 

It was a personal reverse for 
the Archbishop of Canterbury. 
Dr Robert Runcie. who made 
it dear in a forceful contribu- 
tion to the debate that the 
recognition of women priests 
ordained elsewhere in the 
Anglican Communion was 
crucial to the continuing good 
relations between the Church 
of England and the rest of the 
Communion. It “raises a seri- 
ous question of the identity of 


feh that the vote indicated a 
reluctance in the General byn- 
od to proceed to ihe ordina- 
tion of women priests in the 
Church of England. 

Mrs Margaret Webster, ex- 
ecutive secretary of the Move- 
ment for the Ordination of 
Women, refused to regard it as 
the end of the road, saying that 
many members had opposed 
the measure as premature, 
while the main issue, ordina- 
tion of women in England, 
remained undecided. • 

The question centred on the 
position of women . priests 
from abroad who visit En- 
gland and wish to be treated in 


of Christian unity, so we. have 
to take seriously our internal 
Anglican model of interna- 
tional unity if there isrio.be 
serious progress.between com- 
munions . which', manifestly 
transcend nationaf frontiers.-" 




He said that -he did- not 
believe that the measure 
would endanger further the 
progress • towards unity 'with 
other churches. . - 






the same way as visiting male 
clerev. who are generally al- 


ihe Anglican Communion, 
and authority within it." he 
said. 

Dr Runcie said after the 
vote that he was very disap- 
pointed. It would take some 
explaining away, he added. 

The measure fell in two of. 
three houses of the Synod - it 
required a two-thirds majority 
in each, and even in the House 
of Bishops it passed only by a 
tiny margin. 

Voting was: bishops. 28 for. 
12 against: clergy. 128 for. 95 
against: laity. 147 for. 88 
against. The overall majority, 
at round 60 per cent, was 
about the level at which the 
ordination of women has been 
supported on various occa- 
sions in the General Synod in 
the past 10 years. 

The victorious alliance of 
Anglo-Catholics and Conser- 
vative Evangelicals, known as 
the Association for the Apos- 
tolic Ministry, said afterwards 
that it was very relieved, and

points.

see in every critical inquiry a 
threat to faith are sure to 
dislike it. So too will radical 
liberals if they hold in con- 
tempt the tradition of the 
church, or think theology is 
barren cloudland." 

Dr Runcie called the report 
“a consensus document" to 
affirm the common faith while 
leaving room for debate and 


“Anglicanism lives danger- 
ously because it tries to maxi- 
mize that liberty for the 
individual, without losing the

House has responded to this 
synod, and we hope to have 
your critical solidarity in our 
efforts to offer guidance to our 
church in these things. 





argument. 

He said: “We have not 
thought it our duty to con- 
struct a barbed wire entangle- 
ment to keep anybody out but 
have sought to affirm the 
articles of faith, with reserva- 
tion. and without excluding 
exploration. 

“Sometimes people suggest 
or hint that there can be a 
double standard of truth: one 
for professors and academic 
leachers of theology, another 
for the church's officers and 
accredited leachers. I confess 
that I am very iff at ease with 
this suggestion. 

“Obviously academics in 
search of new things to say 
may occasionally yield to the 
temptation to propose new 
ideas that lack any sufficient 
historical basis. Bishops have, 
however, the duty, perhaps, to 
ask Christian teachers in exer- 
cise of their rights of freedom 
and unfetlered enquiry, to be 


affirmation, but they could 
not be said to be the heart of 
the matter. It was the action of 
God in uniting with himself 
our human nature, not the 
passivity of Joseph, that was 
central. It was Christ risen in 
the completeness of his glori- 
fied humanity, not the vacat- 
-- ingofa tomb, that was central. 

- “We are confident that the 
church is enriched when our 
feet are set on a -path broad 

- enough for us to move for- 


"We are united in believing 
that our Christian faith is built 
on an irreducible core of* 
historical events: in essence 
that Jesus lived, died and rose 
again. The report is clear that 
‘historical feet does matter'. 
There cannot be authentic 
Christian faith without his- 
torical events. There must be 
enough feet to sustain faith. 




The Bishop of Durham, the Right Rev David Jenkins,

false pictures of God (Photograph: John Voos).

The Bishop of Durham, the 
Right Rev David Jenkins, said 
that God put himself at their 
disposal that they might be 
brought to his disposal- “If 
God is tins sort of loving, 
identifying and gracious God, 
then surely we must be very 
careful, reverent and reticent 
when we pin certain sorts of 
miracles to him. 


“The choice of physical 
miracles with what might be 
called laser-beam-like preci- 
sion and power would, I 
suggest, not seem to be a 
choice which he cared, or 
would care, to use. This is the 
crux, for if such a physical 
transformation with precision 
and power is an option open 
to God consistently with his 
purposes of creation, freedom

“We are feced with the 
claim that God is prepared to 
work knock-down physical 
miracles in order to let a select 
number of people into the 
secret of his incarnation, res- 
urrection and salvation but 
He is not prepared to use such 
method in order to deliver 
from Auschwitz, prevent Hi-

“Such a God is surely a 
cubic idol. That is to say he is 
a false and mis-developed

cious God. drawn up by 
would-be worshippers who 
have gone dangerously astray, 
if such a God is not a cultic

world." 


about the obedience of Mary 
and Joseph in response to the 
unique graciousness of God 
than about Mary's physical 
virginity. The resurrection 
narratives are far more about 
encounters and namings and 
joyful recognitions than about 
the empty tomb. 

He said that the central 
mystery of the Incarnation 
was that God took on the 
contemporary world. As there 
were no knock-down miracles 
which proved to everybody 
that God was around, so there 
was no church with knock- 
down authority. 

Dr Jenkins said that they 
ought to accept the report 
from the House of Bishops 
and move on in conversation, 
commitment, criticism and 
witness. “We need to face the 
issue . of the ordination of 
women and not be bullied, 
frightened or dismayed by 
backward-looking references,"' 
he said. - • —

Tomorrow the Synod is to 
debate a report that sets out 
proposals for handling dissent 
in the church, should the 
ordination of women come to 
pass. The proposals discuss 
candidly and at length the 
possibility of a formal split in 
the Church of England, and 
many Synod members appear 
to have been very alarmed by

been a factor in determining 
the fate of the- measure on

It appears that there will be 
a move tomorrow to postpone 
further work on legislation for

the foreseeable future, in the

British television viewers 
will be able to select from 
dozens of channels, watch 
their favourite programme 24 
hours a day and choose from a 
menu that will include chan- 
nels broadcasting in all the 
main European languages. 

That is the promise being 
made by the proponents of 
satellite television. 

A substantial step toward 
realizing that dream will take 
place this autumn with the 
launch of the British satellite 
television service Super- 
channel. It will offer a 24-hour 
service with a mixture of 
sport, music, drama, light 
entertain ment and news with 
an emphasis on British-made 
programmes. 

The British independent 
television companies (except 
Thames, Yorkshire and TV- 
am) are the principal share- 
holders in the project, while 
the BBC (which does not have 
an equity slake) will supply 
programmes. 

Superchan ael will be bailed 
as a revolution in British 
television broadcasting, also 
providing the broadcasters 
with their first opportunity to 
become multinational The 
satellite will beam its service 
across Europe. 


It is an important step for 
the partners who are con- 
vinced that there is an enor- 
mous demand in Europe for 
top quality English pro- 
grammes. Special material se- 
lected from the archives of the 
commercial television compa- 
nies and the BBC will be 
designed to whet European 
appetites and those of 
advertisers. 

The European Communica- 
tion Satellite-1 (ECS-1) will 
carry its signals. Cable televi- 
sion networks will receive the 
transmissions with ground an- 
tennae and then re-route the 
service to the homes of sub- 
scribers. The service is aimed 
at 100 million : homes in 
Europe, although only about 
10 per cent subscribe to cable 
television at present. 

For the British television 
companies the project offers a 
market six limes larger than 
the domestic one and a valu- 
able source of income to fund 
large productions without de- 
pending on the American 
market . 

For the BBC it will be the 
first time that its programmes 
will appear on a British televi- 
sion channel funded entirely 
by advertising. Its drama and 
news (it is competing with 


ITN to provide a news service 
to the satellite channel) will 
feature strongly. ■ 

But the channel has more 
significance for the British 
television industry and its 
viewers. It will be the forerun- 
ner of a new type of television. 
Direct Broadcasting by Satel- 1 
lite (DBS). Television chan- 
nels on high-powered 
satellites, emitting about twice 
that used on ECS. will be 
beamed directly into 
viewers'homes where they will 
be received by small dish 
aerials costing abour £500.

; By Frances Gibb _\ 
Legal Affairs Correspondent 

The Lord Chancellor's offi- 
cials have started to work .out 
costings for different models 


of a family court that. may be 
set up for England and Wales 
by 1990. 

So fer only a few responses 
have been sent back to the 
department on a consultation 
paper setting out three possi- 
ble options for the shape, of 
such a court bui views which 
have emeiged endorse ont'.of 
two more radical proposals. 

Under these there would be 
either a unified court within 
the present High Court and 
county court system; or, more 
fundamentally, a new family 
court separate from' r the 
present courts with its own 
distinct structure and. judges. 

The Family Courts ’.Gun- 
paign - a group of about - 100 
individuals. MPs and organi- 
zations launched last year to 
press for a unified Sysiefn for 
all family proceedings- “."has 
not formed a view yet on 
which proposal it Supports: 

But it is clear that there' is 
little general support in the 
campaign for the first, and 
most modest proposal, which 
■would merely, redistribute 
business within, the existing 
court system. This, the xant- 


plans were shelved by the 
BBC. in partnership with oth- 
ers including the independent 
television companies. The 
cost. based on a satellite 
system made by a consortium 
of British Aerospace. British 
Telecom and GEC-Marconi, 
was thought at the time to be 
loo high. - 

Since then the IBA has been 
given the task of reviving the 
project and has invited 
lenders from interested parties 
wishing to run one or all three 
of the DBS channels on offer. 
Tenders must be submitted by 
August.

A complaint that The Sun- 
day Times newspaper implied 
that a gang of Brixton youths 
were “racist rapists", was 
rejected yesterday by the Press 
Council. Mr R Borzello. of 
Camden Passage. London, 
complained that the reporting 
of colour in two instances was 
inconsistent, and could con- 
tribute to racial prejudice. 

The Press Council’s adjudi- 
cation was: 



^ NEXT, PREVENTION 

■ It is our calculation that only half of leprosy 
sufferers have so far been identified for curative 
r treatment. That fact makes the search for an immunity 
; vaccine even more pressing. Already an anti-leprosy 
l vaccine has been developed and is undergoing 
\ preliminary field teste. If it succeeds, we can proceed to 
- long-term vaccine trials.

“The article principally 
complained of was a wide- 
ranging general one about the 
incidence of robbery and vio- 
lent crime. In the Press 
Council’s view ihe passing 
reference to a rape case in 
which “six black youths" were 
awaiting sentence was no 
more than a way of reminding 
readers of the case being cited. 

The council does not find that 
the woods implied the defen- 
dants were racist rapists or 
that the words prejudiced 
racial harmony."

■ the Marcos regime. 

Mr Enrile was not in the

interview he dismissed his 
; appointment and said: “1 am 
n«n asking for another job." 

; Since the revolt Mr Enrile 
. gas expressed full support for 
. President Corazon Aquino 

- and. although critical of the 

- Government’s counter-insur- 
; gency campaign against com- 
munist rebels, has dismissed 
speculation that he would 
support or initiate a military 
cpup with the backing of pro- 
Marcos troops. 

Mr Tolentino has refused to 
; relinquish his claim to the 
vice-presidency, proclaimed 
; by the Marcos-dominated Na- 
tional Assembly before its 
dissolution, and has de- 
_ nounced the Aquino Govem- 
1 mem as illegal and uncon- 
stitutional. 

His oath-taking, before a 
former member of the Su- 
preme Court, was a fulfilment 
of his long-standing pledge to 
assert his claim to the vice- 
presidential post 

■ The rowdy ceremony was 
. preceded by the arrival of a 
^ busload of heavily armed 
. soldiers who entered and se- 
' cured the building before star- 
tled hotel guests. 

They wore maroon head- 
bands on which the word

"Guardians" was written and 
on their fatigue jackets was a 
sticker with the words: "Long

Marcos supporters, milling 
inside the Tobby and ouiside 
the guarded hotel doors 
cheered as Mr Totemjno pro- 
claimed his cabinet intimat- 
ing he had the support of both 
Mr Enrile and General 
Ramos. 

Mrs Aquino, who is on a 
two-day visit to the southern 
island of Mindanao, said in a 
hurriedly called press confer- 
ence in Cagayan de Oro City, 
that her Government was in 
full control. Mr Enrile was 
"looking after my welfare" 
and ' her five-month-old ad- 
ministration had the backing 
of the 200,000-strong armed 
forces. 

She said Mr Tolentino, a 75- 
year-old former Foreign Min- 
ister. could face sedition 
charges and said his oath- 
taking appeared to be pan of a 


de-stabilization strategy or- 
chestrated by Mr Marcos. 

Should any of the renegade 
soldiers, who appeared to 
come from the northern prov- 
inces traditionally aligned to 
Mr Marcos, resort to violence 
then they would be arrested, 
she said. 

• MADRID: Mr Salvador 
Laurel, the Philippines Vice- 
President and Foreign Minis- 
ter. dismissed here yesterday 
the risks of a successful coup 
in his country, declaring: “It's

but no one is following him. 

"There is no risk of a 
setback for democracy, they 
cannot upset the situation in 
the Philippines. All the lime

EEC faces 
; worst crisis 
; on budget 

From Jonathan Braude 
*- • .. Brussels - 

Britain takes over the presi- 
dency of the European ’Com- 
munity's Council of Budget 
Ministers at adifiicult tone. 

Mr Peter Brooke, Minister 
of State at the Treasury, has 
jHst due week to lead. Europe 
out of what Mr Henning

” Commissioner for the Budget. 

- has described as the worst 
« crisis in its history. - 

The- crisis comes after a 
~ ruling fty 'the European Court 
df Justice that the £21 billion

Policeman 
charged on 
gun death 

From Susan MacDonald 
Paris 

A French • policeman was 
charged with manslaughter 
yesterday after a motorist was 
shot dead in Paris. 

The charge came after a 
judicial inquiry was set up by 
the Public Prosecutor’s office. 

The incident took place 
near the Opera House early on 
Saturday when police gave 
chase to a car. The car turned 
the ' wrong way up a one-way 
street and crashed into an 
oncoming vehicle; The driver,, 
according to eye-witnesses, got 
out and ran away, pursued by 
a policeman with a gun. 

As they turned a comer the 
man fell. The policeman alleg- 
edly fired at him, killing him 
outright- 

Police headquarters here 
issued a statement saying that 
a policeman said he acted in 
self-defence when he saw the 
running man trying to pull an 
object out of his pocket which 
he assumed to be a gun. 

. . The dead man was named 
as Lore Leffebvre, aged 27. 

There have been several 
incidents of police over-reac- 
tion since the right-wing Gov- 
ernment came to power in 
March. 

In a separate incident, two 
men have been arrested in 
connection with the death of a 
policeman in a shoot-out after 
a bank raid at Pierrelatte 
(Drome). 

Meanwh/IeAction Drrecte , 
the left-wing extremist group, 
yesterday admitted responsi- 
bility for two bomb blasts in 
Paris early yesterday. The 
blasts, at the offices of the 
Societe Air Liquide and 
Thomson, caused consider- 
able damage but no casualties. 

The group said the bomb- 
ings were in retaliation for the 
Franco-Americafr celebration 
ofthe Statue of Liberty in New 
York- It also demanded an 
end to collaboration with the 
South African Government 


Mexican state elections 

Troops patrol as poll fraud 
and corruption are alleged 

From John Carlin, Ciudad Joarez, Chihuahua 


Army troops patrolled the 
streets of this large Mexican 
town on the US border yester- 
day as voters went to the polls 
in elections described by op- 
position parties as fraudulent 
and comipL 

■Political parties of both the 
right and the left joined spe- 
cially-organized groups of in- 
dependent poll observers in 
threatening acts of public 
disobedience should the ruling 
Institutional Revolutionary 
Party (PRI) rig the vote to win 
simultaneous elections for 
state governor, town mayors 
and congressional deputies in 
Chihuahua. Mexico's largest 
state. 

Elections for governor were 
also taking place in the states 
of Michoatim, Zacatecas and 
Durango. The PRJ has not lost 
a state election for 57 years. 

Chihuahua, the size of 
Spain but with a population of 
only 3 million, is where the 
opposition — in particular the 
right-wing. National Action 
Party (PAN) — is strongest and 
where, therefore, the chances 


of fraud are thought to be 
greater. 

"In a certain sense the 
elections are invalid already," 
said the PAN candidate for 
governor, Senor Francisco 
Barrio, in a press conference 
on Saturday. 

The main left-wing party, 
the communist-based Unified 
Socialist Mexican Party 
(PSUM). shares ihe PAN be- 
lief that the PRI Government 
tampered with the electoral 
machinery in such a way that 
even before the first ballot was 
cast the odds were set heavily 
against the opposition. 

In the absence of anyone 
but PRI officials in the elec- 
tion organizing commissions, 
the opposition claim that the 
electoral register in Chihua- 
hua has been inflated with 
false names. These non-exis- 
tent "voters" will be put down 
in the post-ballot electoral lists 
as having voted for the PRI, it 
is claimed. 

A disenchanted PRI official 
closely involved in the elector- 
al process admitted in a 


private conversation that pre- 
ballot fixing of this type had 
indeed been arranged. He 
even anticipated more cheat- 
ing after polling was over. 

He said that registered vot- 
ers who do not go to the polls 
will, where necessary, be add- 
ed to the list of PRI voters. 
"An abstention is a vote for 
the PRI,' the official said 
wryly. 

But the PRI in Chihuahua 
say it will win the elections 
cleanly. The PRI, having in- 
vested more than usual 
amounts of money and energy 
in its election campaign, says 
PAN is a beaten party which 
had turned to claims of fraud 
to cover up its basic 
unpopularity.

that the contaminated soil 
around the French Electricity 
Company’s transformer sta-

seep into the sofl-The station 
itself will berated. 

The method of soil removal 
will be determined at a meet- 
ing today. One method under 


consideration is to freeze the 
soil chemically, which would 
then be transported 

Nearby houses were evacu- 
ated at the -time of the fire. 
Several people suspected of 
having inhaled toxic fumes 
have been kept under observa-

have so far been found.

Minister. M Charles Hemu, 
was the first to submit to a 
medical test, the first result of 
which should be known today.

Split looms in Spanish Opposition 


From Richard Wigg 
Madrid 

Spain's Cbristian Democrat 
party, the second most impor- 
tant element , in the combined 
Opposition led by Senor Ma- 
nuel Fraga- .is to open discus- 
sions with the ruling Socialists 
to try to obtain a ■ more 
individual voice in the new 

Parliament. ■ , 

The move is the dearest 
sign yet ofthe profound upset 
in. the ranks of the Opposition 
caused by last month’s general 
election, when the Socialists 
won an absolute majority for 
the second tinie. The Opposi- 
ifon did not advance, taking 
105 seals - one less than last 

time. ' . . f . 

Senor Oscar Alzaga- the 
Christian Democrat leader, a 
44 -vear-old Madnd lawyer. 
has T been saying that the 
formula, which twee Jed the 
Opposition to failure, can only 



Senor Fxaga: looking for a 
more indmdnal voice, 
lead to further disasters at next 
vear's general election in 13 of 
Spain's autonomous regions 
and in the municipal polls. 

The Christian Democrats 
have to negotiate wiffi the 
Socialists because, with its 1 84 
MPs in the new lower house, 
this party alone can reform the 
parliamentary ralesL 
Having . fought the election 


as part of a coalition, the 
Christian Democrats are not 
entitled to have their own 
parliamentary group. But 
without such a group able to 
project itself in parliamentary 
debates. Senor Alzaga reckons 
his 21 MPs cannot possibly 
attract more voters. 

The Socialists, who .now 
have to reckon with additional 
opposition from the 19 new 
MPs led by Senor Adolfo 
Suarez, the former Centre 
Democrat Prime Minister, 
have been presented with a 
choice. To; grant the request 
would augment the Opposit- 
ion's. role, including time on 
stale-run television, but the 
Socialists would also be divid- 
ing their opponents. 

• Senor Fraga. who has al- 
ways been the most comfort- 
able Opposition leader for the 
Socialists to face, with his 
well-known past as a Franco 
minister and loudly pro-

claimed home-spun convic- 
tions. might end up heading a 
rump party of some 70MPS. 

If the Christian Democrats 
ggl their way the tiny right- 
wing Liberal Party would also 
wash to express greater inde- 
pendence from Senor Fraga. 

Senor Alzaga, who as a 
student fell foul of the Franco 
regime's police, maintains 
there is an electorate for a 
European-styJe Christian De- 
mocrat Party in Spain with 
middle-of-ibe-road policies. 

Seftor .Alzaga. who has the 
image of a remote intellectual 
and cannot vie with Senor 
Fraga or Senor Suarez a$ a 
popular vote-getter, faces the 
problem that even if he de- 
marcates his parliamentary 
party dearly from that of 
Senor Fraga. there exists no 
guarantee that non-Sociaiist 
voters will do the same or. as 
Senor Alzaga really wants, 
grow in numbers. 


South African unrest 

Seven blacks die 
in attacks on 
township patrols 


From Michael Hornsby, Johannesburg 

Nine blacks died in violence 
at the weekend in South 
Africa, seven of them in a 


running gunbaule between of- 
ficials of the East Rand Devel- 
opment Board and insurgents 
armed with AK47 rifles. 

The deaths bring to 108 the 
number of people reported by 
the government's Bureau for 
Information to have been 
killed in "unrest-related 
incidents" since the emergen- 
cy was declared on June 11 

According to the bureau, six 
black employees of the devel- 
opment board were patrolling 
the township of Vosloorus. 
south-east of Johannesburg, 
before dawn on Saturday 
when their vehicle was over- 
taken by a white Toyota 
Cressida saloon, which pulled 
up some way ahead of them. 

Shots fired from the car 
killed two occupants of the 
board's vehicle and wounded 
three others; The car sped 
away. 

Later, another group of 
development board officials 
patrolling the nearby town- 
ship of Katlehong in two cars 
were fired on from the same 
Cressida. the bureau said. 

The officials had stopped 
their cars by the side of the 
road and climbed oul The 
Cressida "appeared from the 
opposite direction, driving on 
the wrong side of the road" 
without lights. 

As it drove past the parked 
vehicles, its headlights came 
.on and its occupants opened 


fire, killing three officials and 
wounding nine. A little Later, a 
police car spotted the Cressida 
elsewhere in Katlehong and 
gave chase. 

"During the ensuing chase, 
shots were fired by both 
parties. The driver of the 
Cressida lost control and 
rolled the car" the bureau 
reported. Its three occupants 
crawled out and tried to 
escape. One got away, but the 
other two were shot dead by 
the police. 

An empty AK47 magazine 
was found in the car, which 
had been stolen in Johannes- 
burg. 

Meanwhile, several thou- 
sand black goldminers were 
reported to have staged a "go- 
slow" on Saturday at Free 
State Geduld, part of Free 
State Consolidated Gold 
Mines (Freegold). owned by

Botha snub threatens 
Howe’s EEC mission 

From Our Own Correspondent, Johannesburg 
South African newspapers clergyman. Dr Allan Boesak, 


reported at the weekend that 
the visit to South Africa by Sir 
Geoffrey Howe, Foreign Sec- 
retary, as an emissary of the 
EEC was in donbt, or at the 
very least likely to be delayed, 
because of the reluctance of 
both Government and black 
leaders to meet him. 

The Johannesburg Sunday 
Times claimed that President 
Botha had indicated to Lon- 
don, in what the paper termed 
a calculated "snub", that a 
meeting with Sir Geoffrey this 
week would be "inconvenient". 

This 1ms not been confirmed 
officially here, bnt it would 


take a similar view of the 
Howe mission. It is under- 
stood that word has been sent 
to Mr Nelson Mandela, the 
jailed African National Con- 
gress (ANC) leader, that he, 
too, should decline to meet Sir 
Geoffrey. 

Meanwhile, eight of South 
Africa's top businessmen, in- 
cluding Mr Gavin Relly. the; 
chairman of the Anglo Ameri-’ 
can Corporation, Mr Chris 
Ball the chief executive of

In it Mr Botha said South 
Africa would no longer pot op 
with foreign "meddling" and 
told his countrymen to prepare 
for the imposition of economic 
sanctions. 

Most blade leaders also see 
little point in Sir Geoffrey's 
visit.' if for rather different 
reasons. Bishop Desmond 
Tutu, an advocate of economic

visit would be a waste of time.

* I™? Beirut this week to 
maintain the ceasefire in the 
city and to prevent Mr Yassir 
Arafat s Palestine Liberation 
urbanization from re-estab-

Lebanese capital".

. There were strong rumours 
in Beirut at the weekend that 
Syna had used American dip- 
lomats to reassure Israel of its 
intentions before committing 
armed troops to west Beirut 
and had received the almost 
enthusiastic approval of the 
Israelis. 

It was Israel which drove 
Arafat out of Beirut in 1982 
and if Damascus wants to 
keep him out there will, it 
seems, be no objections from' 
the Israelis. 

The reappearance of uni- 
formed Syrian soldiers in west 
Beirut — for the first lime 
since they, too, were evacuat- 
ed during the Israelis' siege- of 
1982 — has already placed ■ 
enormous psychological pres- 
sure on President Geraayel. 
whose opposition to Syria's 
“peace" plans for Lebanon 
grew suddenly muted at the 
weekend. Mr Gemayel's ad- 
visers were reduced to making 
unhappy asides about the

•"illegality" of the Syrian 
Army’s deployment in the 
western sector of the Lebanese 
capital 

Comfortably installed in his 
suite at the Beau Rivage Hotel 
on the Beirut seafront. Briga- 
dier-General Ghazi Kenaan, 
the head of Syrian military 
intelligence in Lebanon, was 
in no mood to suffer these 
complaints. 

"They are trying to fire a 
torpedo into the security 
plan." he said of those among 
Mr Gemayers entourage who 
had criticized the Syrians. “As 
far as we are concerned, we are 
deployed here to reinforce the 
legal (Lebanese) armed forces 
in their efforts to insure 
security." 

General Kenaan knows 
only too well that ruthless 
militias have ruled the streets 
here these past two-and-a-half 
years without Mr Gerriayel 
being able to do anything 
about it. 

Up to 200 Syrian soldiers in 
the red-and-green mottled 
uniform of the Syrian "Special 
Forces" units are now patrol- 
ling west Beirut in the compa- 
ny of Lebanese troops and 
members of the paramilitary 
Lebanese Internal Security 
Force. Yesterday they extend- 
ed their deployment to the 
main road intersection at 
Khalde, at the southern lip of 
Beirut airport, where Druze 
and Shia Muslim militias had 
hitherto maintained a check- 
point 

Plainclothes members of 
the Syrian security police with 
automatic rifles are also 
mounting - road-blocks. The 
Syrians have even abandoned 
their reluctance for publicity, 
freely allowing their soldiers 


to pose, rocket-launchers in 
their hands, for Beirut news- 
paper photographers. 

At the road-blocks at which 
I have encountered them, the 
Syrians have invariably be- 
haved correctly and wiih cour- 
tesy. Nor can there be any 
doubting the relief of thou- 
sands of Lebanese to see them 
here: for the first time in 
months, the Lebanese are 
going out at night to bars and 
restaurants. 

All this will change, of 
course, if — or when — the 
Syrians come under attack. A 
car bomb left outside Beirut 
airport on Friday was widely 
blamed on the PLO and may 
well have been a warning to 
the Syrians that they cannot 
crush the Palestinians. The 
bomb was safety defused. 

Syria's presence here has 
nonetheless produced another 
of Lebanon's familiar ironies, 
this time uniting the Christian 
Phalangisi militia and the 
PLO — both cruel enemies of 
each other — in opposition to 
President Assad's plans. The 
Syrians have long been claim- 
ing that Mr Gemaycl is indeed 
“in league" with Mr Arafat 
and the coming days will 
prove whether there are any 
grounds for such suspicions. 

For if Syrian troops come 
under fire in west Beirut, they 
will have to call for reinforce- 
ments. And if the war of the 
Palestinian camps restarts, it 
is the Syrians — rather than 
their Lebanese militia allies — 
who will have to participate in 
it next time. 

How far behind the first 
Syrian soldier, the Lebanese 
are asking, comes the first 
Syrian tank? 


1 India acts 

on alien 
citizenship 

From Our Correspondent 
Delhi 

India has decided to amend 
' its Citizenship Act in order to 

* bar a person born in India 
“ from becoming an Indian 

- automatically. A Bill incorpo- 
“ rating this and other amend- 

- men is is being brought before 
“ Parliament m the next session 

- beginning on July 14. 

2 . The Bill is along the line&of 
" ihe- ineasure parsed - by the 
British Government some 
time ago to stop "proliferation 
of immigrants". At that time 
India protested strongly. 

The Home Ministry has 
largued that "the presence of 
jj large numbers of aliens in the 

• country may have the effect of 
^'disturbing the political pro- 1 
mcesC as has happened in 
J Assam, Tripura, et cetera". 

* -Two sections of the Act are 
»to be amended. Under one, 

• every person born in' India on 
! or after January 26, 1950, is a 
] citizen of India by birth. 

- This automatic acquisition 
of citizenship will be prevent- 
ed by an amendment which 
says a person will become a 
citizen "only if at the time of 
birth his father or grandfather 
is a citizen of India". 

The other section is being 
amended to increase the mini- 
mum period of six months’ 
residence to five years for a 
foreigner to apply for citizen- 
ship. For citizenship by narn- 
jralizaiion, the minimum 
•period of residence will be 
■Jdoubled, from fi ve years to 10

Pakistan coup anniversary 

Bhutto Black Day 
sparks clashes 

From Hasan Akhtar, Islamabad 


One person was killed and 
10 others injured, including 
five policemen, in a clash in 
Tando Mohammad Khan, 
Sind Province, after a call for a 
nation-wide “Black Day" to 
mark the ninth anniversary of 
the overthrow of the former 
Prime Minister, Zulfikar Ali 
Bhutto. 

' Behind the call was Miss 
Benazir Bhutto, daughter of 
the executed Prime Minister 
and now leader of the Pakistan 
People's Party (PPP). 

Her father was toppled by 
President Zia, the then Army 



Benazir Bhutto addressing a 
weekend meeting in Karachi 


Chief of Staff, nine years ago 
on Saturday. 

In most parts of Pakistan 
the call evoked little reaction, 
in shaip contrast to the mas- 
sive response to Miss Bhutto's 
whirlwind tour only two 
months ago. 

The Black Day observance 
by PPP activists and workers 
was confined to modest public 
meetings and processions. 

At the Rawalpindi public 
meeting. General Tikka Khan, 
a former Army chief and now 
secretary-general of the PPP, 
said his party would continue 
the struggle to remove Gener- 
al Zia and make him answer 
the chaige ofoverthrowing the 
constitutionally-elected Gov- 
ernment of Mr Bhutto. 

Miss Bhutto did not speak 
at any meetings in connection 
with the Black Day but, at a 
trade union -convention in 
Karachi on Saturday, reaf- 
firmed her demands for fresh 
parliamentary elections and a 
change of government by 
autumn. 

If the Black Day call was 
intended to reassert the Paki- 
stan People's Party's claim of 
massive popularity, it fell far 
short, and must have been a 
source of great satisfaction 
and relief to both General Zia 
and his Prime Minister, Mr 
Mohammad KJhan Junejo, 
who leaves on Thursday for 
bis first official visit to the 
United Slates, West Germany 
and Turkey.

Athens in 
crackdown 
on Libyans 

From Mario Modiano 
Athens 

The number of Libyans in 
Athens who enjoy diplomatic 
privileges and immunity has 
been reduced by a third in a 
discreet operation that West- 
ern counter-terrorism experts 
have welcomed. 

Greece was the only mem- 
ber to have refused to imple- 
ment the European Commun- 
ity’s unanimous decision to 
impose sanctions and restric- 
tion s on Libyan missions. 

Mr Andreas Papandreou, 
the Prime Minister, argued 
there was no evidence that 
Libyan diplomats here were 
involved in terrorism. But 
although only four Libyans 
were publicly listed as diplo- 
mats, Greek officials freely 
admitted that more than 50 
others were here on diplomat- 
ic passes. 

They said they enjoyed 
diplomatic car plates, which 
they were often seen being 
switched illegally from car to 
car. Each was entitled to a 
hand-gun for self-protection 
but they were known to have

What prompted the exit is 
still officially unclear. Ameri- 
can diplomats here suggested 
it may be due to Libya's 
shortage of foreign exchange. 
Other European sources, how- 
ever. said die Greek Govern- 
ment was quietly throwing 
them out to ingratiate itself

ty and the Americans.

The Japanese elections 

Nakasone victory forecast 


With reminders to get out 
and vote being broadcast from 
aircraft and announced on 
trains, the Japanese went U» 
the polls yesterday to elect a 
new lower house, half the 
upper house and pass judg- 
ment on Supreme Court 
justices. 

Despite forecasts of rain, 
the weather was near-perfect 
and the turn-out an average 71 
per cent across the country, a 
three per cent improvement on 
.the 1983 turn-out when the 
ruling liberal Democratic Par- 
ty performed poorly. The turn- 
out is average for a Japanese 
election. 

Almost all the principal 
opinion surveys have been 
pointing to a triumph for Mr 


From David Watts, Tokyo 
Yasnhiro Nakasone, the 
Prime Minister. This should 
allow his party to pick up the 
extra 21 seats in the House of 
Representatives necessary to 
steer policies of all 18 standing 
committees in the direction he 
desires. Indeed, anything less 
would be seen as a defeat for 
the Prime Minister. 

In a last-minute vote-catch- 
ing press conference which has 
infuriated the “new leaders" in 
the party who want to succeed 
him, Mr Nakasone said there 
would be a tax cut forthcoming 
but refused to say of what size. 

He also revealed that he had 
received a letter from Mr 
Mikhail Gorbachov, the Sovi- 
et leader, inviting him to visit 


Moscow, thus scoring points 
off Mr Shin taro Abe, the 
Foreign Minister, whom many 
see as the man most likely to 
be the next prime minister. 

The campaign ended with 
last minute appeals from the 
gay rights ami other minor 
parties, while one of the. 
campaign's most memorable 
moments was provided by the 
deaf and dnmb candidate who 
took up his allotted 15 minutes 
of radio time with total silence. 

The police mobilized 53,000 
men to watch for irregularities 
on polling day and said they 
were ready to pick up as many 
as 500 people accused of 
breaching election law during 
the campaign. 


The Pope 
condemns 
expulsion 

From Geoffrey Matthews 
Bogota 

Managua's announcement 
that it had indefinitely sus- 
pended a Nicaraguan bishop's 
“right to stay in the country* 
was strongly condemned by 
the Pope on his seven-day 
visit to Colombia. 

The Sandinistas have in 
effect expelled Monsignor 
Pablo Anionio Vega Mantilla, 
aged 56. Bishop of Juigalpa 
and. vice-president of the Nic- 
araguan Episcopal Confer- 
ence, who was visiting 
Honduras when the an- 
nouncement was made at the 
weekend. 

While visiting Medellin, 
Colombia's second biggest 
city, the Pope said that "this 
almost incredible fact has 
saddened me profoundly, 
even more so because it 
evokes dark eras still not so 
distant in lime". 

It was to be hoped that those 
responsible would reflect on 
the gravity of what they had 
done, which " furthermore 
contradicts repeated affirma- 
tions of wishing the peaceful 
and respectful co-existence in 
the church”. 

Not for the first time during 
his Colombian visit, the Pope 
said that the church could 
"not let the banner of social 
justice be snatched away by 
any ideology or political 
current". 

• MANAGUA: Mgr Vega is 
accused of treason for alleged- 
ly lobbying in the United 
Slates in favour of military aid 
for Contra rebels (Alan 
Tomlinson writes). 

Under headlines accusing 
him of encouraging an Ameri- 
can invasion of Nicaragua, 
Barricada. the official organ of 
the Sandinistas. said he had 
used trips to the US in April 
and May to lobby in favour of 
President Reagan's campaign 
for more aid to the Contras. 

A senior government offi- 
cial told journalists last week: 
"We have tolerated things that 
□o country in our situation 
would tolerate. We have been 
permitting citizens to act 
openly as agents of a country 
that is at war with us.” 


Chernobyl crisis forces 
Byelorussian action 


Moscow (Reuter) — Radia- 
tion controls are still in force 
in parts of Byelorussia after, 
the Chernobyl nuclear acci- 
dent in the Ukraine, according 
to the republic's parly 
newspaper. 

Sovieiskaya Byelorussia 
said the situation remained 
complex in southern parts of 
the Bragin and Khoiniki re- 
gions, bordering the Ukraine. 

Trucks carrying concrete. 


asphalt and other materials 
were arriving day and night to- 
help eliminate traces of radia-. 
tion, the newspaper said. 

The Ukraine’s party news- 
paper, Pravda Ukraina, said it 
was still unclear when people 
would be allowed to return to 
their homes within the zone: 

The main concern, it said, 
was to provide enough hous- 
ing for evacuees before the 
onset of winter. 


Rebels go to jail 
for sabotaging 
railway in Kenya 

From Charles Harrison, Nairobi 


In the most serious develop- 
ment since the Mwakenya 
underground movement was 
discovered early this year, 
three Kenyans have been 
jailed for 14 years for sabotag- 
ing the main railway line 
between here and western 
Kenya, and for sabotaging 
telephone lines in the same 
area. - 

Yesterday it was revealed 
that a second attempt had 
been made to sabotage the 
railway line near the Lake 
Victoria port of Kisumu, but 
that a crowded passenger train 
had been halted before hitting 
rocks and an iron bar which 
had been placed on the track. 
It is not known who was 
responsible for the attempt 

Last Friday a magistrate at 
Nakuru. 100 miles from Nai- 
robi, jailed Samuel Mungai, a 
government agricultural offi- 
cer. Philip arap Kiiur, a 
former law student, and 
Karimi Ndulhu, a former 
engineering student, after they 
admitted charges of sedition 
and sabotage. They were said 
to have removed a section of 
the railway line, derailing a 
goods train. 

Unlike earlier cases, Ln 
which 25 Kenyans charged 
with supporting the 
Mwakenya movement plead- 
ed for mercy, the three said 
they did not regret having 


supported a “guerrilla war" 
against the Government 

The court was told that 
Ndulhu broke his leg while 
trying to evade arrest, and that 
Mungai had iried to commit 
suicide by jumping from a 
bridge after being arrested. 

Most of those already jailed 
for sedition are former stu- 
dents of Nairobi University. It 
has been alleged that secret 
meetings were held, at which 
oaths were administered, with 
the aim of overthrowing, the 
GovemraentThe movement 
wanted to see a socialist or 
communist system in Kenya, 
it is claimed. 

More Kenyans are still un- 
der arrest ana are likely to be 
charged, while seven who 
managed to escape across the 
border into Tanzania have 
now been granted political 
asylum in Sweden. 

President Moi has con- 
demned the activities of the 
plotters, describing them as 
misguided people who have 
been misled by foreigners. He 
says some diplomats, from 
unnamed countries, have giv- 
en support to them, and has 
also accused the foreign press 
of publishing unfounded accu- 
sations against bis 
Government. 

More arrests are expected, 
but the numbers involved 
should be small. 


Briton tells 
of wartime 
massacres 

Hong Kong (AFP) - A rag- 
tag band of Allied servicemen 
slaughtered entire Javanese 
villages as they fled the Japa- 
nese invaders of the island in 
1942, according to an inter- 
view with a British veteran of 
the Second World War. 

Mr Ellis Davies, who was 
then 19 and commander of a 
British naval launch, told the 
South China Morning Post 
that his men had killed every 
Javanese whom they suspect- 
ed to be pro-Japanese and 
could betray them. 

He said the British sailors 
had been sent inland to fight 
the Japanese in Bandung, 
central Java. But they were 
surrounded and had to strike 
ea£t to escape. During their 
five-month flight the 16-man 
crew was joined by Dutch, 
Australian, New Zealand and 
South African stragglers. 

On their way the 80-strong 
group killed Javanese villagers 
who were likely to turn them 
in to the Japanese. “It was kill 
or be killed, so we killed,” Mr 
Davies told the paper. 


Mulroney feels poll pressure 


Unbelievable as it would 
have seemed scarcely two 
years ago, the Conservative 
Government of Mr Brian 
Mulroney which swept into 
office with one of the biggest 
electoral mandates in Canadi- 
an history now faces an uphill 
battle to prevent it becoming a 
one-ienn wonder. 

Its task is to convince voters 
that it deserves better than to 
be treated as a mere blip on 
the screen of customary Liber- 
al rule. Mr Mulroney has just 
carried out a massive Cabinet 
reshuffle to start the process. 
Twenty-seven ministers swi- 
tched portfolios, were broughl 
into the Cabinet or shuffled 
out. 

Mr Mulroney’s most press- 
ing task is to reverse the 
disastrous decline in Tory 
fortunes in Quebec, where the 
party won 58 of 75 House of 
Commons seats in the federal ' 
elections of September 1984 — 
against the one seat it had held 
before. 

Recent opinion polls have 
shown the Tories running 
behind the Liberals national- 
ly. But some polls have also 
shown them running third in 
Quebec. 

Mr Mulroney, aiming to 
reverse this trend before the 
next election, expected in 
1988, increased the number of ' 
Quebeckers in his Cabinet 
from eight to 10 and appoint- - 
ed four of them to key 
economic portfolios. 

Another political impera- 
tive is to turn the delicate issue 
of free trade with the United 
States to advantage.^ recog-

nition of the crucial impor- 
tance of this issue to his 
Government’s ultimate sur- 
vival Mr Mulroney moved 
Miss Patricia Carney from the 
portfolio of energy, mines and 
resources to the post of Minis- 
ter for Internationa] Trade. 

His key move in trying to 
redress his Government's fad- 
ing image was to name the 
affable and effective Minister 
of Transport, Mr Donald 
Mazankowski, as Deputy 
Prime Minister in place of the 
pugnacious Mr Erik Nielsen, 
who was dropped from the 
Cabinet. 

Mr Mazankowski will also 
be Government Leader in the 
House, a logical place to start 
the refurbishing process. 

The new Cabinet is:

Chile calm 
but tense 
after strike 

. . From Lake Sagaris 

Santiag o 

A tense calm has settled 
over Santiago in the wake of 
last week's two-day general 
strike against military rule, 
which left six people dead and 
more than 50 with bullet 
wounds. 

Police are also investigating 
an attack by a paramilitary 
group on a police station late 
on Friday night. 

Over Lhe weekend, the fu- 
nerals of victims became con- 
tinuations of the anti- 
Govemment protests. During 
the funeral of 24-year-old 
Boris Vera, young boys, their 
.laces covered with scarves, 
angrily attacked the vehicle of 
a suspected spy and responded 
to police harassment with 
shouts and stones. 

; Ten busloads of friends ao<J 
neighbours accompanied the 
remains of 13-year-old Nadia 
Fuentes to the metropolitan 
cemetery, where she was bur- 
ied to the sound of anti- 
Government chants and 
prayers by family and priests. 

Witnesses say she was killed 
by a soldier, when she went to 
buy bread on the first morning 
of the strike. 

President Pinochet accused 
strike organizers of trying to 
apply a "Nicaraguan model" 
in Chile. 

“So how can you talk of 
legitimate dissidence?" he 
asked reporters. ‘‘They’re not 
dissidents, they're nothing but ' 
people who challenge author- 
ity, lawbreakers who, in many 
cases, support violent: 
confrontation." 

Seventeen members of the 
National Assembly of Civil 
Society, which called the. 
strike, are expected to appear 
in court this week. 

Serior Andres Dominguez, 
of the Chilean Human Rights 
Commission, explained that* 
the- 17 had not turned them- ’ 
selves in over the weekend 
because they “are unwilling to i 
be mistreated by the police". 
Assembly lawyers have asked 
that they receive special treat- . 
ment. because “this is a { 
political accusation so it's not - 
appropriate to apply the . 
norms relevant to common | 
crime". ■ 

The Government has al- 
lowed the mother of Rodrigo • 
Rojas, badly burned (by sol- ? 
diers. according to witnesses) ’ 
toreium to Chile for a month. • 
to be with her son. She lives in 
exile in the United States. I 
Campaigns began on Friday ! 
in support of four radio sla- - 
tions whose news broadcasts 
were banned and two maga- * 
zines, accused of inciting vio- 
lence and participation in the 
strike. Journalists held a 
peaceful march through the 
centre of Santiago that was 
interrupted by police using 
tear gas. 


Defiant Mount Athos monks vow to keep out newcomers 

Bishops mediate in religious war of generations 


From Mario Modiano 
Athens 

A delegation from the Or- 
thodox ecumenical patriarch- 
ate of Constantinople goes to' 
Mount Athos this week to ease 
some of the inevitable strains 
caused by the recent revival of 
monastirism in this all-male 
theocratic republic established 
in northern Greece.!, 000 years 


monk population of the 
holy mountain, which dwin- 
dled from 10,000 in its heyday 
to only 1,145 in 1971, now 
stands at 1,600 doe to the 
influx of more than 700 new- 
comers in the last 15 years, 
many of them accomplished 
scholars and intellectuals at- 


tracted to the spiritual promise 
of asceticism. 

However, the old monks of 
Vatopedi monastery, on the 
east coast of Athos, are defy- 
ing orders from the comm- 
unity's rotating executive to 
man their house with new 
monks because their number 
has declined to fewer titan 20 
and most are aged over 60. 

Last week they barricaded 
themselves inside their for- 
tress-like monastery and 
vowed to burn it down if, as the 
executive threatened, any out- 
siders forced their way in. 

What VatopedTs belea- 
guered veterans fear is that an 
influx of younger monks would 
take control of the monastery's 


democratic assembly and do as 
they pleased. Already the new 
monks have taken over the 
more decrepit of the 20 monas- 
teries, restored them, and 
imposed the more rigorous and 
disciplined form of monastic 
life known as “cenobitic”, 
under which monks share a 
frugal and hi gh ly regimented 
communal existence. 

Their efforts to persuade 
other monasteries to adopt 1 
what they see as a return to the 
roots of orthodox monastidsm 
and worship is being resisted 
by the old monks, who are 
mainly concentrated in the six 
monasteries, including 
Vatopedi, that observe the 
"idiorrhythmic*' style. 

. . J r 


'The ecumenical patriarch- 
ate, which has maintained 
since Byzantine times spiritual 
suzerainty over Mount Athos, 

■ was asked for both sides to sent 
an “exarchate" a delegation 
of three bishops, to mediate in 
the dispute between Vatopedi 
and the executive. The monks 
of Vatopedi want to prevent a 
takeover by a majority of 
newcomers who would vote 
Vatopedi into a cenobitic mon- 
astery, since their decision 
could never be reversed. 

Those hostile to the 
Vatopedi monks make insinu- 
ations about the state of 
morality in that monastery, 
which they describe as “a nest 
of vice". The Vatopedi monks 


.r 


firmly reject these allegations 
which, they say, are designed 
to intimidate them into sub- 
mission. They, fo tuni, suggest 
that since Vatopedi, which 
ranks second in hierarchy 
among the 20 monasteries, is 
one of the largest and the 
richest their rivals are after 
not only its richcollectioos of 
Byzantine relics and treasures, 
but also its extensive bud 
holdings, 

The ruling Greek Socialists 
have pledged to expropriate all 
monastic land for distribution 
to farm co-operatives. But the 
Athos monks have warnedf 
Athens that, if such action is 
taken, they will dose their 
doors to the outside world.

SPECTRUM 



Will they buy the ugly duckling? 


Britain badly needs an early 


Illustration by John Grimwade 


warning system, but the 


NIMROD AEW3 


Government is faced with the 


dilemma of choosing Nimrod, 


which is behind schedule, or 


raising a furore by buying 


abroad. George Hill reports 


Deep in the unseen recesses of 
the Ministry of Defence, four 
civil servants will meet this 
morning to discover the con- 
tents of five sealed envelopes 
laid on the table before them 
by the Ministry's contracts 
branch director. 

Solemnly the envelopes will 
be slit open, and the tender 
board will start the job of 
evaluating and comparing the 
price bids for the job of 
building Britain's fleet of fly- 
ing sentinels. The fleet will 
keep watch against surprise 
supersonic attack until well 
into the next century. 

They should never have had 
10 meet like this. Almost 10 
years ago Britain made its 
choice of early- warning sys- 
tem. and the British-built 
Nimrod planes should have 
been in service two years ago. 
But they will not be ready 
before 1988 at the earliest, and 
the RAF will shed no tears if 
they never arrive. 

Unlovely and unloved by 
the service destined to operate 
iu Nimrod has already cost 
Britain nearly twice 1 what we 
could have bought its Ameri- 
can equivalent for in 1979. 
The overall costs — more than 
£1 billion — will be about 50 


All the planes 
in the contest 
are ugly 


abandoned incomplete. 
Boardroom jealousies, strikes 
and misunderstandings be- 
tween customer and supplier 
combined to handicap a 
project which was in any case 
venturing far into the techno- 
logical unknown. 

Today's ground-hugging 
fighter-bombers are able to 
spring surprises on defences 
by coming in under their - 
guard, giving only a few 
seconds notice of attack. The 
growing complexity of the 
threat has meant that warning 
planes must also be more 
complex. 

Meanwhile “London is full 
or tourists", as one GEC 
executive said apprehensively 
last week. .Swimming against' 
the post-Libya .current, sales- 
men for four American rivals 
have arrived, sensing that 
Nimrod may be so bad that 
Britain may seriously be open 
to rival bids worth billions. 

All the planes in the contest 
are ugjy. Adapted for their role 
from other uses, they are 
disfigured with clumsy blisters 
and bulges, or carry rotating 
turntables on their backs to 
pick up electronic echoes from 
hundreds of miles away. Aero- 
dynamkrally. they are abomi- 
nable. They are almost 
windowless because their 
crews look inward to look 
oututard. gazing at round or- 
ange radar-screens and green 
ieo displays in their claus-

cost of the electronics central 
to its performance will over- 
shoot by no less than 130 per 
cent. 


Some of those most closely 
involved in airborne defence

Nimrod is the ugliest of all, 
with the graceful lines of a 30- 
ycar-old Comet airliner bloat- 
ed with carbuncles to protect 
the sensitive antennae which 
incessantly scan the sky. 

Cobbled together from 


are convinced that Nimrod- batch of airframes built as a 


will never meet its perfor- 
mance targets; but they fear 
that it will be foisted on the 
RAF out of political 
expediency. 

Last week's decisive change 
of course by the Government 
away from the frrospending 
defence policies of the last 
seven years reinforces the 
danger that it may be templed 
to go for an inadequate sys- 
tem. lo minimize future 
spending and avoid a row. 
More fundamentally, the la- 
mentable story calls into ques- 
tion Britain's ability to make 
sensible decisions ai all in the 
vastly expensive and risk- 
strewn field of advanced de- 
fence technology. 

Meanness, shortsighted- 
ness. national over-confidence 
and cross-purposes between 
allies have landed Britain with 
a plane which fell so far short 
of customer specifications on 
its trials in 1 983 that they were 


job-creation exercise by a 
long-ago Labour government 
and a detection system which 
sees too much for its owr 
good, it is a classic example oi 
British improvisation. 

So much information 
streams into its network that 
its computer cannot cope, and 
misinterprets the tracks of cars 
and even buildings as possible 
attackers. An early warning 
system which is liable to 
identify a vehicle on the Ml as 
the onset of World War Three 
may be more of a hindrance 
than a help. 

Its manufacturers claim 
that the way to solving the 
fundamental problems is now 
clear — a more powerful 
computer and new triangular 
antennae. But these will not be 
fully ready to demonstrate in 
flight until late next year, and 
the Government has lo make 
its decision this autumn. 



EARLY 

WARNINGS 


‘It’s an extremely 
difficult decision to 
make and it is a 
balance about 
delivery of defence 
requirements, about 
meeting a defence 
imperative, in my 
view, and insuring, if 
possible that that is 
done within Britain 
or if it is not wholly 
done in Britain, that 
the maximum 
technology is kept 
here, the maximum 
number of jobs is . 
sustained here’ 


MICHAEL HESELTINE 
former Defence Minister 


‘I think that the RAF 
quite rightly have 
been very sceptical 
about our ability to . 
perform. Judging by 
what they have at 
the moment, I’m not 
surprised. But at the 
same time, I know 
that the RAF will 
want to support 
British industry and 
will want to try to 
make the Nimrod 
work, if they can, 
and we’re confident 
now that we can 
make it work* 


JAMES PRIOR 
chairman of GEC 


‘Well, I don’t 
particularly want to 
buy American, but if 
that proves to be the 
only way we can get 
a cost-effective 
solution to this 
problem, then 
maybe we shall have 
to’ 


LORD TREFG ARNE ■ 
Minister for Defence 
Procurement . • 


Nimrod, with its main rival die Boeing Awacs and three other contenders: die choice of five before die ministry this morning . 


Since February, when the 
Government sought to con- 
centrate minds by opening the 
contest to an international 
free-for-all. GEC has woken 
up to the need to put up a 
fight. The despairing apathy 
which had begun to settle over 
the project has lifted, and the 
company has made a bid 
which implies readiness to 
forgo aH profits to secure the 
Nimrod contract 
This is partly a matter of 
company prestige, but also 
springs from a perception that 
there is a glittering export 
market beginning to emerge. 
More and more countries are 
beginning to look for an early 
warning capacity. With up to 
70 possible customers, a mar- 
ket of £2bil!ion may develop 


in the next 10 years. If 
Nimrod's electronics can be 
made to work, and lodged in a 
more up-to-date airframe, 
they would be well placed to 
secure much of this. 

Nimrod's rivals fall into two 
categories; Awacs and the rest. 
Awacs is die assured leader in 
the field, the sleek product of 
the American principle of 
throwing dollars and zest un- 
inhibitedly at any problem the 
USA really wants to solve. It is 
already in service and fully 
proven, and has been steadily 
refined over the years. 
Nimrod’s supporters claim 
that the British system is 
potentially more flexible and 
better at spotting slow-moving 
and sideways-moving targets 
— but potential is one thing 


and performance another. 

Awacs has one drawback, 
but it is a crucial one in 
tomorrow’s market; it is spec- 
tacularly expensive to buy and 


Cars can be 
mistaken for 
attackers 


to operate. The other contend- 
ers are a motley dutch of 
small fry and hypothetical 
hybrids, either inadequate or 
years away from production. 

Lord Trefgame. the minis- 
ter responsible for defence 
procurement, will have a diffi- 
cult job to assess this contest 


between actual, unproven and 
frankly speculative planes. En- 
thusiastic bidding is going on 
to garnish overseas bids with 
offset deals to reduce foreign 
exchange costs. Unlike the 
RAFs procurement execu- 
tive. which will ‘be governed 
by operational criteria, he will 
have to make a decision that 
lakes account of employment 
and political repercussions. 

The pressures on him are 
intense. When the 
Government's decision to in- 
vite foreign bids was made, 
member after member on 
both sides of the House stood 
uj> to voice their un weakened 
faith in Nimrod. Labour and 
Conservative governments 
were both involved in the 
expensive misjudgements 


which bedevilled the project's 
history, deeply imbued with 
the superstition that throwing 
good money after bad will 
turn bad into good. 

The Westland and British 
Leyland affaire have called up 
a streak of chauvinism which 
will make k extremely diffi- 
cult to choose a foreign bid 
The defence cuts make it less 
likely that the RAF will ever 
lake control of the fleet of 
majestic Awacs planes it han- 
kers for. AH ihe short-term 
political pressures will thrust 
in Nimrod's favour, almost 
regardless of merits. The 
temptation to settle for Nim- 
rod will prove almost irresist- 
ible if it can be made even 
half-serviceable. And even, 
perhaps, if it cannot.

6 I’ve been imprisoned in Nigeria, beaten up in Uganda’ 


JUST OVER a year ago 
Colonel Guy Stocker's welfare 
fund, used to paying out up to 
£70,000 a year to the desper- 
ately needy, was down to its 
last £8,383. Around the Com- 
monwealth, as many as 30,000 
Third World ex-servicemen 
who had fought for Britain, 
and their dependents, and 
who rely on Stocker for bare 
subsistence, faced the prospect 
of a life begging in the gutters 
of Destitution Row. 

Stocker runs the British 


Colonel Guy Stocker’s fight to help the 


Commonwealth’s forgotten servicemen 


Commonwealth Ex-Services 
League, the little-known chari- 
ty which comes to the aid of 
Commonwealth veterans and 
their widows when all other 
safely nets have failed. When 
Stocker look the job in J 979 
after retiring from the Army 
he was told he was inheriting a 
dying organization. 


He quickly hired several 
insurance company actuaries 
to prove the reverse. Pleas for 
help are now doubling every 
year, and they are expected to 
reach a peak in 1990 which 
will not decline until 1995. 

At the league's triennial 
conference at Windsor in 
1983, delegates were told by

alternative but to sink their 
pride and beg for money. The ' 
result was a decision to launch 
an appeal throughout the 
Commonwealth to raise £5 
million, of which £1.5 million 
was to come from Britain. 

The appeal was launched in 
April of last yean last week 
Stocker, with a deal of relief, 
told The Times that he now 
had £1 million in the bank, 
and could carry on.

TO RAISE the money, Stock-

arms of the armed services.' 
and asked the lord lieutenant 
of every county in the king- 
dom lo organize local appeals. 
Earlier this month Prince 
Philip staged a polo match 
which brought in £20,000. 
Stocker also wrote to every 
member of the Mother of 
Parliaments. 

“I have had £25,000 from 
the House of Lords, and a 
miserable £2,300 from the 
House of Commons. The 
Prime Minister refused to give 
me anything, on the grounds 
that Denis Thatcher had spon- 
sored a runner in the London 
Marathop to the tune of £13." 

Stocker’s real problem is 
that the Second World War 
was so long ago that the 


governments which now ran 
many Commonwealth coun- 
tries have forgonen. or do not 
care to remember. Most of the 
league’s funds used to come 
from veterans’ organizations 
around the old empire. But 
funds are drying up; the Third 
World's perceptions and pri- 
orities are changing fast. 

“In many countries I am 
treated with grave suspicion; 1 
arrive to look after the welfare 
of those who fought for King 
and country, ana I am sus- 
pected of fomenting revolt. I 
have been imprisoned in Ni- 
geria. beaten up in Uganda, 
and dragged from my bed in 
Lesotho." 

Earlier this year he flew into 
Lesotho, on a ticket donated 
by British Caledonian, with 
£250 in his pocket to distrib- 
ute among the most desperate 
cases. He found the British 
High Commission packed out 
with veterans, most of them 
wearing the Eighth Army Star. 
Many had fought on the 
beaches of Anzio. They gath- 
ered under a tree and sang the 


National Anthem and “Abide 
With Me" to him. 

“I looked in the records and 
found that 50,782 men from 
Lesotho, which was then Ba- 
sutoland, had served In North 
Africa. When 1 got there I 
found more than 2,000 cases 
of genuine need, with no other 
means of support. My £250 in 
travellers’ cheques was pretty 
inadequate, but it was a start.” 


ACROSS THE border in 
South Africa, Stocker looks 
after more than 100 black 
veterans in Soweto; some 
years ago he built them all 
bungalows and gave them 
interest-free mortgages. But 
they still need his help. 

“The South African govern- 
ment gives pensions to veter- 
ans, but a black gets one-fifth 
of the pension of a white." 
Over the years, by supple- 
menting donations given by 
the South African Legion, the 
local non-go vern mental vet- 
erans' association. Stocker has 
been able to build his Soweto 
dependents aclub and a chapel. 


He reckons that in most 
Third World countries a pen- 
sion of £50 a year from his 
fund is enough to provide a 
veteran or his widow with a 
home and a sufficiency of 
food. But he does not just send ‘i 
cash: he has sent kits to 
Uganda containing basic agri- 
cultural tools, seed,' and four 
sheets of corrugated iron to 
make a shelter, and earlier this 
year he arrived for the corona- 
tion of the new king of 
Swaziland bearing 1 50 cast-off 
British Army uniforms, so- 
that veterans there could pa- 
rade in something other than a 
loincloth. 

Some cases are recent, like 
that of a Chinese laundryman 
killed when HMS Sheffield 
went down in the Falklands; 
his widow was somehow over- 
looked by the South Atlantic 
Fund. Stocker calculates that 
there are at present 14 million 
men. widows and dependents 
in 54 countries around the 
world who could claim.

who bad four of their own children 
and who had adopted another four 
in the days when abandoned babies 
were amply infams in need of a 
loving family. 

Today, some local authorities 
would condemn people of Mary’s 
ethnic background to live in an 
institution because of their blanket 
ban on black children going to white 
families. It is a thought that makes 
her very angry. 

“Most children up for adoption 
are half something or other and half 
something else”, she says. “How do 
you match them ethnically?". 

This is a difficulty that is trou- 
bling a group of parents, social 
workers and adopted people like 
Mary who have formed themselves 
into a pressure group in an attempt 
to persuade those councils to change 
their policies. The group’s slogan is 
Children First It will appeal to most 
fair-minded people but whether it 
will cut any ice with those who 
stubbornly insist on sending a child 
to a home rather than opt lor “next 
best”, as the campaigning families 
call themselves, remains to be seen. 

The group is anxious to empha- 
size that its members want to see 
black children matched with black 
families. It is on the question of 
what .happens to a child when no 
ethnic match is available that they 
differ with the councils. 

“1 would prefer a million times 
over to have been adopted by a 
white family than to have been 


stockpiled in institutions waiting for 
a home. 

“ We feel terribly anxious about 
it. What are these authorities afraid 
of? My children have grown up 
perfectly well-adjusted and happy 
and. dare I say. kids are better off 
with a white family than with 
having nobody?

pretend that 
the child is white, the 
same as you 9

brought up in a home", Mary says. 
She simply laughs at the idea that 
according to the bureaucrats she 
should have an identity crisis: “I 
was loved. I was happy, and I was 
treated with respect because I was 
the vicar's daughter. 

u In my opinion the ban is on the 
same level as not being able to sing 
Ba Ba Black-Sheep or not being able 
to call a blackboard black”. 

What is at stake, though, is 
important Mrs Hilary Chambers is 
married to a teacher and has three 
white children of her own and two 
adopted teenagers who are black. 
She has served on adoption panels 
and says that children are being 


"Sometimes I feel deeply 
ashamed of people who make racist 
remarks and I have to teach my kids 
that they should fee) pity for them, 
not get angry. As a family we have 
gained hugely from being of mixed 
coiour..We think much more deeply 
than we would have done about 
what is going on in race relations in 
this country. 

"I am just like a black mother. I 
know my black children are more 
likely to be picked up by the police 
than my white children. They have 
to be tough and leant how to handle 
that sort of thing." 

It is generally agreed that a black 
child in a white family usually 
settles down better if there is a black 
brother or sister. Lesley Morris, a 
35-year-old interior designer, and 
her husband, who is an accountant, 
agree with that but they and their 
adopted Asian/European Eurasian 
son are caught in the ideological 
trap of ethnic matching. “We 
wanted to adopt coloured black 
children for idealistic reasons", 
Lesley says. "There was a need for 
adopted families and we thought 
that we could give provide a good 
home for a child from a different 
ethnic background. 

“ We applied to bur local author- 
ity and everything went well until 
they changed their policy. At least 
they were reasonable towards us 
and referred us to another borough 
which had no bias against us 
because we are while. The whole 
process took ages and in the 
meantime we had two children of 
our own. We still want to adopt 
another black child but it looks now 
as though that will be impossible. 

**Our son is the odd one out on 
two counts. He is the only adopted 
child and the only mixed race 
member of the family. It isn't fair on 
him but I don’t want to sound as if 
though 1 am condemning the idea of 
seeking out adoptive families of 
mixed race because I'm not.

that choosing the right families if

they are not racially matched is 
vital. They have to be aware of the 
problems and be trained in how to 
deal with them. Being while parents 
of a black child involves different 
issues — like being aware that the 
child is going to suffer from racism. 

“ll is important also not to 
pretend that the child is white, the 
same as you. It must realize that it is 
black and be proud of it. 

“You- have to teach the child 
about its origins and background. 
They are part and parcel of its 
colour and ethnic group. White 
parents have to be aware of these 
things and help the child to cope 
with them. 

"It is a naive attitude to think that 
loving a child and providing a 
family is all that is needed and that 
other problems can be ignored". 

Tom White, head of social ser- 
vices at Coventry for 15 years and 
now director of the National 
Children's Homes, describes the 
eihnic-match-only philosophy as 


"the right motive gone .mad". 

It is not acceptable, he says. "I 
have 30 years’ experience and in 
most cases placing black children 
with white families works.extreinely 
well. The question is: what sort of 
effort are these authorities making 
to find ethnic minority foster 
homes? It is just not enough to 
advenise in the normal places.” 

In a perfect world there would be 
queues of mixed race families who

“The mothers were both Muslims 
and unmarried and they managed 
to come to this country to have their 
babies", Jane McDonald says. She 
has been married to her business 
manager husband for 1 1 years but 
they have been unable to have 
children of their own. 

“We are upset about what is going 
on. With all this colour controversy 
1 am beginning to wonder if I have 
done the right thing and whether we 
will be able to cope in the future. 
Other people adopted black chil-

would make suitable foster parents 
but in the real world couples like the 
McDonalds are sadly disillusioned. 
They have two adopted children, 
both from Egypt . 


Sacrificing children to an institu- 
tionalized life for the sake of an 
ideological creed sounds too cruel to 
be credible but the Children First 
campaigners say that this is what is 
happening.

Pumping the parents 


4 Is there a "great educa- 
tion debate" going on 
in Britain? Many poli- 
ticians say there is: so 
does a substantial body 
of political punditry. Opinion 
polls, some- of which ideniily 
education as the "number one 
election issue", seem to con- 
firm it. though perhaps their 
respondents are merely pick- 
ing up the expressed views of 
the pundits. 

If there is such a debate, I 
would like to know where it is 
taking place, and bow l can 
lake part. But- even if I 
discover the where and the 
how, there remains the who — 
with whom am I debating and 
who is listening? 

The debate, such as it is. 
between the main political 
parlies is a dialogue of the deaf 
par excellence. The debate.

is hard to see how a school — 
so impotent in dealing with 
the realities that it is virtually 
forced to buy computers at the 
expense of textbooks — could 
respond to the perceived 
needs of its pupils and parents 
even if it wanted to. • 

My elder daughter has just 
finished herO Levels. For her. 
the Great Debate might as

This state of affairs was

much about iL Next year, 
when my younger daughter 
treads the same academic 
path, she will not need a

not in the slightest affect the

propensity for telling me how 
its spending has grown in "real

little "childish" for partici-

I have learnt a handy new 
verb during the weekend: “To 
woman", as in “If yon need 
further information we shall 
be womanning a desk ontside 
the Bistro on the 3rd floor", 
which is what it said, on a 
poster for Woman Alive, a 
summer event for women 
sponsored by the magazine 
Marxism Today* where 1 
spent a jolfv Saturday with 
some 2.000 others. 

Although Women Alive 
was put together by a group of 
Communist Part) 1 women, the 
sessions were addressed by 
Teresa Gorman, a Conserva- 
tive councillor. Emma Nichol- 
son, the Conservative Party 
vice-chairman. Sue Slipman, 
from the SDP. and journalists 
from Cosmopolitan and Good 
Housekeeping. 

In the Women Alive bro- 
chure, an advertisement for 
16-day study tonrs of Nicara- 
gua settled in a heartwarming 
way beside one for the Doro- 
thy Genn Women's Financial 
Service. At the sessions mid- 
dle-aged women in Jaeger 
and hairdos mixed with youn- 
ger women with Eton crops 
and drawstring trousers. 

Not everybody approved of 
the event. On the steps of the 
South Bank Polytechnic 
where it was held, grim-faced 
women were handing out 
leaflets. These protesters 
were not from organizations 
such as The Campaign for the 
Feminine Woman, who might 
have been expected to banlk 
at some of the debates going 
on inside about a feminist 
approach to science and 
whether there could be "a 
feminist justification of vio- 
lent. aggressive, warring 
behaviour". 

No. the women on the steps 
were from the London Radi- 
cal Feminist Study Group and 
their complaint was that the 
summer event was much too 
cissy. “Nowhere over the 
course of the weekend will 
yon hear any mention of male 
power over women per se 
(thundered tbe study group's 
leaflet) — the central fact that 
men as men oppress, subordi- 
nate, harass, humiliate, rape 
and kill women and girls all 
tbe time, on all levels: that 
this behaviour is almost uni- 
versally socially sanctioned 
as the “natural’ power relation 
‘between* men and women." 

W'elL everything in its time 
and place is what 1 1 say to 
that. It would have been 
churlish in the extreme if the 
Women Alive event had dwelt 
upon men as baddies since the 
creches provided were hardly 
wo manned at all; they were 
almost universally manned. 

lYhile women were being 
shown how -to make banners 
and given advice on housing, 
social security and careers, 
the men in their lives were 
hovering around the minia- 
ture trampoline to catch an 
over-bouncy two-year-old. 

All this gentle manning 
was reassuring in view of 
’what was being Imparted at 
the various sessions which, 
although they had titles such 
as Making Waves. Locking

lumped together under the 
beading Tbe Same Old Story, 
so depressing]}; familiar were 
their themes. 

The one 1 attended in the 
morning was about women in 
socialist countries and by the 
end of it I felt that, if you were 
a Woman, it didn't much 
matter whether you lived in 
Gloucestershire or the Gulag; 
your life was going to be full 
of the same frustrations and 
yon were going to spend it 
getting very, very tired. 

We were told that in the 
Soviet Union men working in 
industry 1 spend, on average. 
21.4 per cent of their day off 
on domestic matters, while 
women in the same field 
spend 26.2 per cent; and that 
in the German Democratic 
Republic, women are widely 
represented on the lower 
rungs of every profession, but 
yon woBid hare to get np very 
early in the morning to find 
them right at tbe top. 

Passing acts for the protec- 
tion of mother and child, 
which is what the GDR did in 
1950, seems to make no 
difference. Yon can give it a - 
shot of whatever you’ve got — 
positive discrimination, gen- 
erous maternity leave, equal 
pay — bat there seems to be 
some kind of worldwide natu- 
ral law which states that if a 
child is ill it's tbe mother who 
takes time off work to look 
after it, and to hell with her 
career. 

I suppose the good thing 
about women having a lousy 
time all over the globe is that, 
aside from the London Radi- 
cal Feminist Study Group, 
women from all political per- 
suasions fed that they have 
most things in common.1 
came away longing to meet 
someone who asked me what 1 
did for a living so that 1 could 
practise saying: “I woman, a 
weekly newspaper column." 


I do not see a bright future for

Or rather, what the user says 
he wants to read, which is 
something else entirely. Who 
is going to admit to lilting the

suits? Just about nobody.

THE TIMES MONDAY JULY 7 1986 


Much ado about something in 
Shakespeare country, where the 
school that taught the Bard will 
become a sixth-form college if the 
Labour and Alliance coalition 
running Warwickshire County 
Council has its way. The plans for 
comprehensive education ‘ have 
produced a chorus of disapproval 
from governors of the King Ed- 
ward VI voluntary aided grammar 
school in Stratford-upon-Avon, 
who insist that the seat of learning 
should remain as they like iL “It is 
a very special school and part of 
the national heritage”, says Dr 
Levi Fox. chairman of the school’s 
governors and director of the 
Shakespeare' Birthplace 
TrusL”This plan would mean the 
end of the school as we know it”. 
Although no records survive to 
prove Shakespeare's attendance at 
King Edward's, scholars have long 
accepted it as his aima mater. The 
600-ycar-old foundation is no 
stranger to battles with the local 
authority; in 1979 it saw off a 
similar comprehensive plan. I 
gather that if lobbying fails this 
time, the governors* last throw 
could be to go independent. 


While the investment world 
booms, its gurus overwhelmingly

from social ends, than within the 
Church. And nothing illustrates its 
dilemma more sharply than the 
question or the Church's invest- 
ment policy towards South Africa.

That is the underlying question 
the Church of England Synod will 
be debating today when it dis- 
cusses the Church Commiss- 
ioners' South African investment 
policy. 

Many clergy are perplexed and 
dismayed by the lack of overlap 
between the injunctions of the 
New Testament on the one hand 
and those of the market place on 
the other. They see and read 
enough to appreciate that agrow- 
ing minority in the markets do not 
even render unto Caesar the things 
that are Caesar’s. And if they 
consider the lilies of the field at all. 
it is to wonder what they would

and so obsessed by market win- 
ners can avoid being more than an 
engine .of crude materialism. 

Some taking pan in the Synod 
will reflea on times past when, for 
example, .canon law forbade all 
interest as usurous and parasitical. 
Today, if the Cfiurch Commis- 
sioners are right, the opposite 
prevails. They are obliged to make 
financial return the major feaor in 
their investment derisions. In 
their annual report published last 
week they explain that they cannot 
interfere with this priority because 
of their “statutory responsibilities 
to (our) beneficiaries” as “under- 
lined by a recent legal ruling on the 
responsibilities of those who man- 
age charitable funds.” 

That ruling was the 1 984 verdict 
in Cowan v ScargilL when the 
judge. Sir Robert Megarry, ruled 
that Arthur Scargill had wrongly 
tried to shackle the freedom of 
investment of the trustees of the 
mineworkers* pension scheme. 
The judge came to the unsurpris- 
ing conclusion that ifl entrust my 
money to trustees to bold for my 
pension benefit, they cannot give 
rein to their personal moral views 


in determining their investment 
policy so as to lose me money. 

, But one does not need to be a ju- 
rist to see that trustees of funds 
provided for public charitable 
purposes are in a very different 
position. Anything and everything 
they do must advance those 
purposes. Nothing they decide can 
conflict with the same. So, for 
example, even if the shares of 
tobacco companies showed the 
best return, the trustees of a 
charity devoted to the eradication 
of smoking-induced cancer would 
be acting improperly and in 


the principal external oil supplier 
to South Africa, takes a lot of 
justifying. 

Several church groups have 
stopped trying, the latest being the

Commissioners’ Art 1840 directs 
that the funds held within its 
ambit be devoted to "the cure of 
souls in parishes where such 
assistance is most required” 
There is no talk there of the 
sanctity of price/earnings ratios. 
Indeed, the section specifically

Christopher Duggan explains the Mafia’s stranglehold on Sicily 


The grassroots Godfathers 


Until recently, because of Italy’s 
hopelessly overloaded telecom 
system. 1 used to get nothing but 
the engaged signal when phoning 
the British embassy in Rome. No 
longer. Frustrated callers are now 
mollified by the strains of “land 
of Hope and Glory.” 



The trial in Palermo of 474 alleged 
members of* the Mafia — or Cosa 
Nostra as it is now properly 
called — has been described as a 
turning point in Sicilian history. If 
the Mafia was simply a criminal 
organization that might be true. 
But it presents a much more 
complex problem, a - fusion of 
myth and reality, of political 
calculation and social and eco- 
nomic issues. The history of the 
Mafia — or rather the idea behind 
it — suggests that its suppression 
is near impossible. 

Although the origin of the words 
"Mafia" and "Mafioso” are open 
to debate, in Palermo dialect they 
originally denoted qualities of 
beauty, self-confidence, and 
strength. Criminal connotations 
developed only after the unifica- 
tion of Italy in 1860, when there 
was great opposition in Sicily to 
the northerners who came to 
administer the new regime. Dras- 
tic measures were needed, said 
one prefect of Palermo, but politi- 
cal trials would be embarrassing. 

. How would it look to the outside 
world if this new liberal state was 
seen to be crushing the voice of 
protest? Better to accuse the 
trouble-makers of involvement in 
a criminal conspiracy. 

Often the state tried to deal with 
social and political protest — the 
Palermo rising of 1866, the Sicil- 
ian socialism of the 1 870s and the 
peasant land occupations after the 
Great War — by making out that it 
was criminally inspired. The hid- 
den hand of the Mafia was a 
convenient and simple explana- 
tion for turmoil but it did not 
make for satisfactory solutions. 

In part the government was . 
simply trying to hide the fect'that 
many Sicilians found Italian rule 
oppressive, indeed illegitimate. 
When they refused to co-operate 
with the police the official 
explanation was that they were 
being terrorised into silence, and 
the authorities responded by send- 
ing in even more police. 

When people were in trouble — 
a theft, a dispute over land — 
they turned not to the law but to 
the local Mafioso. He had author- 
ity, and often enjoyed almost 
patriarchal status in a community. 
His power certainly rested on the 
ultimate resort to violence: but he 
was felt to represent ordinary 
people in a way that public 
officials did noL The state was the 
enemy within. Those who collabo- 
rated with it too closely could 
expect punishment, sometimes 
death. 

In general, the police knew that 
no great criminal organization 
existed, but they needed results. * 
During Mussolini's great drive 







against the Mafia in the 1920s, 
many of those arrested and 
charged with criminal association 
were simply men of authority and 
courage. Accusations of Mafia 
involvement have long been used 
by politicians to oust incumbent 
administrations.. In the early 
1920s. when the fascists were 
battling for power, many socialist 
and liberal town councils were 
dissolved on these grounds. 

Police operations in Sicily often 
ended by reinforcing the dis- 
respect for the state that they 
sought to overcome, and for many 
people the Mafioso remained 
more reliable than “the law". 
There was also the fact that 
Mafiosi were rich ‘and could 
provide jobs, loans, and even 
social benefits: the state, it was 
fell, only sent in the police. During 
a recent demonstration in Pa- 
lermo, sacked workers called for 
the Mafia. A job financed by 


heroin was, in their view, better 
than no job at ail 

Because Sicily has long been 
poor, status is keenly felt and the 
struggle not only to survive but to 
succeed is intense. This is one 
reason for the Mafia’s popular 
appeal. 

The revelations of Tommaso 
Buscetta - the basis of the state 
case against the 474 — are cer- 
tainly remarkable for their detail: 
but this is not the first time that 
the “conspiracy of silence” has 
been broken. Confessing to foe 
police as a means of destroying 


one's opponents has long been a 
feature of Sicilian society, as is the 
case with Buscetta. His main 
concern, it seems, is to get his 
enemies convicted. He has not 
repented of his Mafia ways. 

There are undoubtedly gaps in 
his evidence but most of what he 
says rings true. One of foe more 
remarkable aspects of his tes- 


Strange things are happening in 
the Democratic Republic of 
Afghanistan. Since taking over 
from Babrak Karma! as party 
general secretary on May 4, Gen- 
eral Najib has launched a public 
relations offensive more in keep- 
ing with an American election 
campaign. Afghans can have seen 
nothing like it before. 

In the first two months of his 
reign. Najib has taken bouquets of 
flowers to injured soldiers and 
paid countless visits to schools, 
newspaper offices and barracks. 
He has addressed gatherings of 
nomads in the eastern provinces, 
elders from the Hindu and Sikh 
communities and groups of no 
doubt startled mullahs in various 
parts of foe country. The new 
broom is out with a vengeance. 

Nor can Najib be said to be high 
on rtietoric and low on action, a 
criticism frequently levelled at 
Karmal from Moscow before his 
downfall. A general amnesty for 
repentant draft dodgers and array 
- deserters was announced three 
weeks ago as part of Najib’s wider 
scheme to bolster membership of 
the armed forces, his greatest 
priority. Force is being allied to 
persuasion with reports of 15- 
year-oids being caught in the 
conscription net. Military press- 
gangs wander the streets compel- 
ling reluctant Afghans to take foe 
Najib shilling. 

Najib is unambiguously out to 


Where new broom 


Najib can only fail 


seduce foe sceptics. The govern- 
ment is to pay half foe fare of those 
making the pilgimage to Mecca. If 
a recent statute is faithfully im- 
plemented. all government offices 
and army barracks will be re- 
quired to erect mosques for foe 
convenience of employees and 
soldiers. The fever of reform will 
be extended to Uzbeks and 
Turkoraens. tribal groups tra- 
ditionally envious of the Pushtun 
majority, who will be invited to 
attend special schools designed to 
eliminate illiteracy. 

This flurry of activity is impres- 
sive by anyone's standards, but 
what does it all mean? Najib is 
clearly attempting to undo the 
damage inflicted-initially in 1978- 
79 when over-zealous party of- 
ficials flitted by helicopter around 
foe country preaching Marxist 
rhetoric and insisting on radical 
land reforms. 

Many Afghans have not for- 
given. and are unlikely to forgeL 
foe replacement of foe Afghan flag 
by another bearing a hammer and 
sickle in foe early weeks of the 
revolution. That, and other exam- 
ples of ideological insensitivity, 
unleashed the latest in a series of 


jihads — holy wars against the 
infidel — an activity in which the 
Afghans have a formidable record. 

It is the momentum of this fury 
that Najib is trying to counter with 
his reforms. But will he persuade 
large numbers of the mujahidin to 
beat their swords into plough- 
shares? For all his dynamism and 
fervour, two factors weigh heavily 
against him. The Afghan com- 
munist party’s inability to create a 
broad basis of support has its 
origins in the 1978 revolution 
itself. It was never a genuine 
national liberation movement, 
courting foe masses to throw off 
foreign intervention or colonial 
domination. Revolutionary 
groups in Cuba. Nicaragua, -South 
Yemen and, to a certain extent, 
Angola were able to make pas- 
sionate appeals along these fines, 
enabling them to drum up foe 
support neccessary for some sort 
of post-revolutionary legitimacy 
and stability. 

This was never the case in 
Afghanistan and is a spectre that 
haunts Najib in his present di- 
lemma- Pany membership at the 
lime of foe revolution was around 
2S.000 in a population of 15 


million, mainly in certain sections 
of the armed forces and in foe 
country's four or five major cities. 
There was never a rural base to 
speak of. 

As a result foe legitimacy of 
Najib's power — like that of his 
predecessors - is open to question. 
The party's policies, no matter 
how seductive or progressive, will 
inextricably be tainted with foe 
manoeuvrings of its northern 
neighbour and benefactor. A talk 
recently broadcast on Karachi 
radio put the point precisely: 

“The Afghans pay little heed to 
those who are out to play the role 
of puppets. Puppets all over the 
world suffer from a great handi-t 
cap: they do not move on their 
own. It is foe hidden hand of the 
puppeteer that moves them and if 
the audience, that is foe people, 
are not pleased with foe pup- 
peteer, they would not applaud the 
antics of foe puppet" 

Najib has begun in a manner 
which suggests he may be less of a 
puppet than Karmal. He certainly 
means business. Guerrilla leaders 
and other sceptics, however, are 
unlikely, to be coaxed into sub- 
mission by the piecemeal reforms 
of this new man of action. They, 
like the West, are still awaiting the 
grand gesture that could herald a 
new start for Afghanistan — foe 
withdrawal of Soviet troops.

All this is not to imply that the 
Church Commissioners are any- 
thing but good, caring people 
trying to do their best. They have, 
after all, applied some limited 
ethical yardsticks vis-d-vis their 
South African involvement. But 
the established church should be 
giving a clear ethical lead. One is 
sorely needed, and not only by 
Christians. Instead, some think it 
has got into a moral and legal 
muddle. To find, for example that 
foe Commissioners' second big- 
gest UK shareholding is in Shell, 


Engineering a 
con trick 


timony is his description of Mafia 
structure and rituals. There are 
“commissions" regulating foe af- 
fairs of each province, a "super 
commission” or “cupola” to deal 
with important collective issues, 
sectional commanders, and rank 
and file “soldiers". There is also 
an initiation ceremony. The nov- 
ice smears blood on to a paper 
saint bums it between his fingers, 
and swears to observe the rules of 
the society. “Men of honour” are 
subsequently introduced to one 
another with foe words “This man 
is foe same thing” 

Such a large and well-defined 
structure has never been described 
before: and there is every reason to 
believe that it is an essentially 
* urban and post-war phenomenon. 
The initiation ceremony, by con- 
trast has a long history, at least in 
popular literature. But it was 
generally ascribed by 1 9th century 
writers to the Neapolitan Camorra 
rather than foe Mafia. 

Buscetta’s picture is not entirely 
consistent It is not certain, for 
example, what foe Mafia actually 
exists for. “Business activities", he 
says, are not run collectively - in 
true Sicilian fashion it is each man 
for himself when it 'comes to 
making money. How far it con- 
trols heroin trafficking is therefore 
open to question. What does 
emerge dearly is the pride and 
self-satisfaction of “men of 
honour”. They see themselves as 
benefactors, providing work, or- 
der. and justice in Sicily.Buscetta 
has posed throughout as a man of 
high ideals who became disgusted 
with foe standards of foe Mafia in 
. recent years, which is one reason 
why he is “singing”. 

Leonardo Vitale, who “sang” 
back in 1973, said he became 
involved with foe Mafia because it 
was an organization that kept 
order and protected the weak. He 
put il in the same bracket as foe 
freemasons, the Beati Paoli (an 
1 8 th century secret society 
immortalized in a popular ro- 
mantic novel at foe beginning of 
the oentury), and even Mazzini’s 
patriotic movement, “Young 
Italy”. 

All this merely adds a veneer to 
foe unpalatable. The truth is that 
“men of honour” mate enormous 
sums at the expense of others. But 
they believe the myths about 
themselves, and so do many 
others. In the slums of Palermo or 
Catania, where Cosa Nostra flour- 
ishes, such fen tastes are a source of 
hope. The prospect of wealth and 
power is tantalising; and there are 
many who can justify foe recourse 
to crime by claiming that foe true 
Mafia is foe state.

“Working Together" . foe Alliance 
slogan at the last election. |S_ so 
good that foe other political 
parties have been borrowing it- 
Last week foe government pub- 
lished a while paper entitled 
“Working Together — Education 
and Training”. It got headlines 
which must have pleased Kenneth 
Baker and Lord Young. “£?00 
million pledged to technical 
education” was the theme. “Voca- 
tional experiment to be extended 
to all schools”. Clearly presenta- 
tion is improving: no more cuts; 
here was a generous dollop or 
money for education. 

Closer scrutiny reveals foe 
sleight of hand. The £900 million 
is to be allocated over ten years. 
The additional finance amounts to 
£150 per pupil, compared with 
£600 per pupil invested in foe 
Technical and Vocational Educa- 
tion Initiative (TVEI) so fer. 

In any case it is not new money. 
“These amounts." says foe docu- 
ment. “will be found from within 
the MSCs planned provision for 
young people” — in other words 
from foe sum already committed 
to the Youth Training Scheme. A 
cynic might conclude that foe 
government keeps education and 
training in two separate depart- 
ments so that it can give foe 
impression of generosity by shift- 
ing sums from one to the other. 

If the Tories really want tech- 
nical and vocational education to 
succeed they need three things: 
status for foe subjects, qualified 
teachers and property equipped 
schools and colleges. 

The argument about whether 
spending on education has risen or 
fallen during foe last seven years 
continues to rage; but there can be 
no argument over capital spend- 
ing. Since 1979 there has been a 
cash reduction of 13 per cent — a 
real cut of 60 per cent — in 
education capital programmes. 

Most secondary schools were 
built on the assumption that few 
children would do very much in 
science and technology beyond the 
age of 14 — indeed, if they were 
girls, none , at all. “The 
government's policy.” says foe 
white paper grandly, “is that up to 
age 16 all pupils should be 
acquiring a broad competence in 
communications, numeracy, sci- 
ence and technology, design, for- 
eign languages, and other subjects 
necessary in a successful modem 
society." If this statement is more 
than pious sentiment large sums 
must be spent on foe necessary 
laboratories, workshops and com- 
puter suites. 

Even more crucial than foe 
hardware are foe teachers. The 
shortage of qualified teachers for 
maths, science, technology and 
design is now. a matter of daily 
comment and the Situation is ‘ 
getting worse. Recruitment to 
post-graduate training courses in 
these subjects is down by anything 
up to 25 per. (tent and teachers are 
' leaving the profession faster than 
they can be replaced. The Depart-

candour 


So there I was foe other weekend 
at V.S. Author's country retreat; 
me and the great man and a 
handful of other writers so famous 
that I would only wound you with 
envy if I listed them. 

In the past certain of my readers 
have taken V.S. to be some fictive 
incarnation of his iniliaisakes — 
either Pritchett or Naipaul. But 
that is wrong: he exists in his own 
right and foe two letters stand for 
Very Successful, just as mine 
stand for, well. an. 

V.S. is a charming, well-lived-in 
sort of chap, hitting 50 and 
accelerating. His paunch — rem- 
inding me of a man with a bass 
drum in a marching band — has 
cost him a fortune in Bollinger 
over foe decades, all financed tty 
the immense success of his first 
novel. True Brit, with which, as 
they say in foe trade, he cracked 
America. 

So there he was on his veran- 
dah. deep in the severely taxed 
canvas of his deck-chair while his 
tiny French wife went round with 
foe champagne. The English 
countryside beyond was really 
doing its stuff for us; lettuce-green 
hillocks beneath a pelmet of azure, 
foe waft of new-mown aromas, foe 
quiet fecundity of the kitchen 
garden, troutlets stippling the rills, 
■ferm lads being exploited in some 
milking parlour in foe middle 
distance, and jet fighters drifting 
like benign spores above. 

.At this point, enter, via foe 
french windows. B.R.O. Adcaster,' 
freshly suffixed with three new 
initials from foe Queen’s Birthday 
Honours. While most of us have 
aa assembly of vocal cords in our 
throats. Adcaster was issued at 
birth with a megaphone instead. 
This he operates.at three levels of 
volume: foe aside, which booms; 
foe articulation, which roars: and 
foe projection, which can seri- 
ously damage your health. 

It has been said of him that a ca- 
reer in broadcasting was a sort of 
tautology, since he had no need of 
amplification. Anyway, in he blew 
like a loudspeaker van on election 
day. his greeting, “Vee-Ess!” mak- . 
ing foe rooks deploy in terror from 
a distant copse. 

Adcaster is so used to silencing 
his interviewees, through addic- 
tion to the sound of his own voice 
that he simply cannot expunge 
that mode in the interests of social 
nicety. He champed up and down 
on the old boards of foe verandah, 
a dray-horse in dressage.' before • 
delivering his dearly rehearsed 


dedbellage to foe little company: 
“Trooo Briitt! Tee-Vee adaptation 
a disamrster.!” a Phantom dash- 
landing on a Sunday school could 
not have induced more alarm. 

A kind of silence — the siience ; 
of multiple death - ensued, but 
not for long, for down crashed. 
Adcaster’s next salvo: “Should- ne- 
ewerr have aliooowwwed . iti" 
And then he switched dawn a gear 
to boom: “Your books • are 'all 
fantasy, Vec-Ess. Do not therefore 
set them at foe mercy ofa factual 
medium.” v ... . 

■You see, Adcaster and Author 
had been at Cambridge together, 
foe one a Greats man, the other a 
lapsing Leavisite, and the. rivalry, 
at least on Adcaster's part, -has 
never abated. Theirs are. two 
wholly irreconcilable vision^ of 
foe world. What clearly irked the 
impossibly vain Adcaster on. foe 
verandah that day was the feet 
that Author, having bested him in 
terms of international acclaih. was 
now threatening to outplay him 
(Adcaster) on his own pitch.— foe 
tele; a pitch which in his eyes is the 
proper repository for foe clatter of 
politics and the public world in 
motion. It was too much to bear. ■ 

I will not soon forget what 
happened next To put it at its 
briefest. V.S., very quietly, very 
suddenly, and of course very 
politely, went nuclear on his 
assaillanc “And how is-,vour novel

on foe tip of foe'ep£e which made 
this such a devastating forusL But

! P-’ r ‘ r ‘ V 


ment of Education and Science is 
issuing a paper on this issue this 
week and it is widely expected that 
differential payments will be put 
firmly on foe agenda. . 

Whether this succeeds or noL it 
is essentially a shorMenn. mea- 
sure. The real problem is that 
there' -are far loo few - people 
qualified in these, subjects, in 
society as a whole. While- we 
continue with our absurdly over- 
specialized A level examinations, 
this is likely to remain the case. 
What other advanced industrial 
nation allows more than halfbf its 
most academically' able pupils to 
abandon the study of- maths and 
science two years or more before 
they finish their secondary educa- 
tion? In West Germany. Trance, 
foe US and Japan fr would be 
unthinkable: indeed, in foe US 
and Japan the majority continue 
with these studies through the 
early years of university. : . ■ 

But foe urgently heeded reform 
of A levels has not happened. 
Instead the miserably weak alter- 
native of A/S levels rr optional 
extras which admission tutors at 
university may or may not take 
notice of — are being introduced. 
Meanwhile not only are young 
people showing some indication 
of swinging back 'to .the- 'afts. 
‘subjects again, but the proportion 
staying at school to do any AJevds 
at all is actually felling as welL the 
DES is to do some research to 
establish why some youngsters 
who would previously have stayed 
in full-time education are opting 
instead for YTS, With the £284- 
week YTS bribe to leave school it 
is not really. such.a puzzle. ; 

And finally, status. It is fashion- 
able to bev^il foe. ifect foe our' 
engineers and technicians do- not 
have the social standing that they 
have in Germany, that our.-ablest 
youngsters are shying away from 
technology. We wring our hands 
. over the survival of an outdated 
aristocratic world view which sees 
foe minority .as thinkers- mid 
rulers, aitd the majority as hewers 
of wood and drawers of water. Yet 
the white paper merely confirms 
this division and reinforces it 

There are still to be an die one 
hand foe high flyers, destinedTor 
higher education, working, for 
qualifications set and marked by 
the university examination boards 
and under the general supervision 
of foe Education Secretary; and on 
the other the practical people, 
working for vocational qualifica- 
tions, now to be integrated by a 
new quango working to foe 
Employment Secretary.- How this 
separation will improve foe status 
of technical education is. unclear. 

The conclusion of .foe white 
paper is upbeati “If all those 
concerned in education and train- 
ing' worked together; : ; wcr .-shall 
begin to earn foe dividends Which 
investment in learning will bring." 
But, read slowly,: that sentence 
begs a lot of questions. "

^mmodierAiuebtfiiotyei possess sufficient strength to 
. ready to recognise their female exercise a synodical veto, as 

ministers. They went at the they have done for the last ten 
issue of women’s ordination at 
.-their -own hectic speed, and 

, must grant the Church of 
England the right to prefer a 
more leisurely and measured 
pace. 

A mother church, which is 
also a legally established na- 
tional church, has greater in- 
hibitions and responsibilities 

laid upon it. And it never was 
particularly logical for the 
Church of England to consider 
accepting the ministry of visit- 
ing women priests before it 
was committed to make 
women priests for itself. The 
motive behind the Women 
. Orda i ned Abroad Measure 
was implicitly manipulative; it 
was calculated to soften opin- 
ion in the English church by 
introducing it gradually to 
enfrocked females from 
abroad; so that the eventual 
decision in ordaining women 
would be more favourable. 

This supposed that, the 
objection to women priests 
was some sort of phobia to 
which people could be de- 
sensitized, like a fear of spi- 
ders. It is of course a 
theological issue of some im- 
portance: opponents and 
supporters alike would do the 
church a service if they took it 
more seriously as such. 

For these reasons the 
Church of England would be 


years. If they cannot be out- 
voted, they will have to be 
persuaded; and that means 
more theological argument 
Different bits of the Church of 
England must stop trying to 
manipulate, threaten, or out- 
manoeuvre the rest and start 
listening 

If the defeated measure 
smacked of manipulation, the 
report on legislative proposals 
smacks of moral blackmail. In 
Tuesday’s debate on these 
proposals, the synod should 
cast an unsentimental and 
sceptical eye at talk of splits 
and schisms, parallel episcopal 
jurisdictions, continuing 
churches, and similar mis- 
chievous devices. The synod is 
not mandated to preside over 
the Church of England’s dis- 
memberment Nor is it fitting 
that support for the ordination 
of women should be inched 
towards the necessary two- 
thirds synodical majority by 
ingenious means designed to 
relieve the guilt of the majority 
towards the minority. The 
church likes to avoid painful 
choices, but softness can go too 
for. If a two-thirds majority is 
convinced of the case for 
women priests, and desires to 
act accordingly, the minority 
will have to learn to live with it 
or resign. They should not 
expea the Church of England 
to provide them as they depart 


with all the accoutrements, of 
a rival church, and Church 
Commissioners' money to run 
it 

In place of manipulation 
and manoeuvre, and therefore 
in place of Women Ordained 
Abroad measures and leg- 
islative proposals for implicit 
or explicit schisms, the Church 
of England now needs clear 
leadership. It isto the House of 
Bishops that the church has 
the right to look. The Bishops 
have done very well with the 
issues raised by the Bishop of 
Durham, and that was no less 
theological, nor indeed less- 
critical for the peace and unity 
of the church, than women 
priesis. So for the Bishops have 
given no collective lead in this 
other matter, allowing them- 
selves instead to be the victims 
of events. Yet many of the key 
questions concern them es- 
pecially as bishops: it is they 
who will ordain women or not, 
they who will or will not 
exercise jurisdiction over 
dissenting clergy and their 
parishes, they who will or will 
not remain in full communion 
with provinces overseas 
containing female bishops, 
when those appear on the 
scene as they surely will Even 
if only out of self interest the 
bishops should fight to gel 
their hands on the steering 
wheel. 

The bishops as a body 
accurately reflea the range of 
opinion in the church at large. 
A united epispopate would be 
the best assurance of a united 
church; and if unity takes 
some effort to find, and some 
time; the church could wait a 
little longer for it The epitaph 
on Saturday's negative de- 
cision must be: “more haste 
less speed”. 


A MARSHALL PLAN FOR SOUTH AFRICA 



The peacemaker’s role is really 
blessed as Sir Geoffrey Howe 
is discovering to his cost 
Before his mission to South 
Africa had got Off the ground, 
his ministrations have, been 
. rebuffed bythe fugitive leaders 
of black opinion and, it would 
seem, if only temporarily, by 
President Botha himself. Sir 
Geoffrey, who is believed ini- 
tially to have entertained seri- 
ous. doubts about his brie£ 
must be overcome by a sense 
of futility, while President 
Botha’s reportedly graceless 
response has played right into 
the hands of the sanctions 
lobby. 

Before the. advocates of 
sanctions exult over this new 
weapon in their war against 
Mrs Thatcher, however, they 
should reflect that it merely 
proves the truth of Mrs 
Thatcher’s own dictum that 
sanctions and isolation are the 
worst possible way to bring an 
end to apartheid and Pretoria 
to its senses. No nation, least 
of all the Afrikaners in whom 
years of being an international 
pariah have bred a strong 
sense of xenophobia, takes 
kindly to foreigners telling it 
how to run its affairs. Even less 
does it negotiate willingly un- 
der the band of a gun. It is 
thus unfortunate that Sir 
Geoffrey’s mission has been 
cast, through no fault of his 
own, as a do or die attempt to 
force Pretoria to accept die 
international prescription for 
its troubles -the release of 
Nelson Mandela and the 
unbanning of the ANC -~o r 
fece the consequences. The 
South African Cabinet which 
has lived for years under the 
threat of sanctions has ac- 
quired an immunity to tnc 
opinion of the worid and there 
now appears to be 
sense in white South Africa 
that total isolation would be a 
lesser evil than endless visits 
by finger-wagging foreigners. 
This is an inappropriate re- 
sponse to Sir 

which was not inten&to ty 
Mrs Thatcher to 
fix. but simply the *■*<»* 
nmcess in which tempers

others who beUcve mistakenly 


that one more short, sharp 
shove will persuade Mr Botha 
to hand over the keys to the 
South African castle, fail to 
draw. Bishop Tutu js not going 
to receive Sir Geoffrey Howe, 
which is his right He is also 
within his rights, when he calls 
’on Mrs Thatcher to ‘’destroy 
apartheid.” But he is wrong 
when he prescribes sanctions 
as the means to do it 

In her .search for more 
appropriate measures, Mrs 
Thatcher has mentioned 
Britain's financial support for 
the EEC programme of assis- 
tance to victims of apartheid, 
which has been mainly used 
for the education and training 
of black South Africans. The 
programme is wise, but the 
amount involved — £37 mil- 
lion — is derisory if this ap- 
proach to the problem is to be 
tackled with the same convic- 
tion and moral fervour cur- 
rently enjoyed by the pro- 
sanctions lobby. The moral 
base for positive as opposed to 
punitive sanctions, for 
continuing and strenuous 
engagement rather than dis- 
engagement, rests firmly on 
historical fact Apartheid be- 
gan to crumble when eco- 
nomic growth in South Africa 
raised its costs and reduced its 
benefits to the white oligarchy. 
Growth became the engine of 
political change, bringing 
businessmen out in opposition 
to government One by one, 
from job discrimination to the 
pass laws, the struts of apart- 
heid have cracked under the 
pressure. 

South Africa needs to grow 
at a minimum annual rate of 
six per cent to create the 
million jobs a year necessary 
to accomodate the growing 
army of unemployed. Last 
year alone it lost 500,000 jobs. 
By the same token Pretoria — 
and indeed any future black 
government — no - longer has 
the resources to introduce 
equity into the society, to 
educate, house and care for its 
black millions. 

A world which is truly 
motivated by the desire to 
destroy apartheid, feces a real 
test of its moral commitment 
to continue the process 
brought by economic 
growth - a process which 
could be halted by a combina- 
tion of recession, sanctions 
and white perceptions of a 
threat to their security. . 

What is needed is a joint 
American, British and possibly 
European Marshall Plan for a 
multi-million pound invest- 
ment in black South Africa. 
Pretoria today spends more on 
black education than rt does 
on defence, but even if those 
priorities do not Shift udder 
external threat, it does not 


have sufficient funds to pro- 
vide the country’s Mack chil- 
dren with the education to 
equip them for the future they 
claim, ft has, however, begun 
to back away .from the 
Verwoerdian concept that all 
black education Should be 
controlled by the state: There 
is, therefore, nothing in prin- 
ciple to prevent international 
agencies founded and funded 
by British, American and 
European governments from 
establishing a network of pri- 
vate schools and colleges for 
black South Africans. Pretoria 
has also abandoned the con- 
cept that it alone could pro- 
vide and thus control black 
housing in the metropolitan 
areas. A Marshall Plan for 
South Africa could, by work- 
ing either independently or 
through the business-backed 
Urban Foundation, provide 
the funds to house South 
Africa's growing army of ur- 
ban homeless. It could also 
strike a direct blow against 
apartheid if aid is made 
contingent on Pretoria’s 
willingness to abandon the 
Group Areas Aa which en- 
sures residential segregation 
and proclaim new land for 
low-cost housing in the major 
metropolitan areas. If the 
firnds were channelled to black 
entrepreneurs employing 
black workers, the housing 
fund could also ease un- 
employment and provide the 
seed money for black commu- 
nity development as a whole. 
The funding of agricultural 
colleges, agricultural extension 
schemes, and hospitals to im- 
prove the skills and the lot of 
the rural poor and of business 
colleges for the expanding 
black entrepreneurial class, 
would represent a further 
.investment in an apartheid- 
free future. 

Opponents of the scheme 
will doubtless argue, as they 
have in the past, that it will 
help to fund and to shore up 
the apartheid society. Recent 
history in South Africa, how- 
ever, has shown that the 
reverse is true,, that a fright- 
ened, isolated and impov- 
erished society retains the 
prejudices and rigidity which 
are eroded by economic con- 
fidence and growth. Even 
more important, perhaps, such 
a scheme would help to create 
an alternative South Africa of 
apartheid-free structures in 
which government edict and 
control becomes increasingly 
irrelevant 

Meanwhile it is to be hoped 
that Sir Geoffrey Howe’s mis- 
sion will go ahead to South 
Africa, as planned. This 
should be a time for quiet 
diplomacy - as quiet as pos- 
sible anyway.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 


Facing the facts of fife in class 


From the National Hon. Secretary 
of Family & Youth Concern 
Sir. Rosalind Sion, a$ a former 
acting head, and deputy head, of 
two progressive inner London 
comprehensive schools, expresses 
"personal outrage” at the clause in 
die Education Bill which would 
ensure that sex education en- 
courages pupils to have due regard 
for moral considerations and the 
value of family life ( "Sex educa- 
tion that faces facts”. July 2). 

Everything she says in her 
article confirms the importance of 
that innocuous clause in the 
Education Bill. She is obsessed 
with teaching children about alter- 
native life styles and alternative 
modes of sexuality with heavy 
emphasis on homosexuality and 
lesbianism, even to the extent of 
devoting "many of my own 
lessons" to discussing what took 
place on television last night. 

It came as no surprise, there- 
fore. to read in the same issue of 
The Times that the Minister 
responsible for higher education 
has warned of the danger of 
Britain becoming a "remedial 
society", with 40 per cent of 
youngsters on the Youth Training 
Scheme having to be given re- 
medial teaching in writing, read- 
ing and counting after ten years of 
full-time education. 

As academic standards have 
fallen, there has been a rise in 
teenage abortions, illegitimate 
births and diseases associated with 
promiscuity. The extent of family 
breakdown is a very serious social 
problem, giving rise to the need 
for remedial and preventive ac- 
tion to reverse these destructive 
trends before it is too late. The 
clause in the Education Bill is a 
small step in the right direction. 
Yours sincerely, 

VALERIE RICHES. 

National Hon. Secretary, 

Family & Youth Concern, 

Wicken, 

Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire. 
From Mrs /L B. Crabb 
Sir, It is a pity that Rosalind Stott 
decries the “family" as “bearing 
little resemblance to real life”. 
Women should surely not feel 
oppressed within the family struc- 
ture if they can. work at building a 
solid foundation upon which their 
children can stand and grow, with 
the knowledge that a loving family 
provides a real security which 
cannot be found in the classroom. 

Like anything worthwhile, the 
.ask of bringing up children is 
difficult. How unfortunate it is 
that such an important role has 
become so unfashionable at the 
present time, when many of the 
lessons that could so easily be 
taught in the home are left to those 
teachers who view the family with 
SUCb disriain.- 


As for the Tory Party elevating 
the “family" into "some kind of 
ideal state”, this should surely not 
be criticised in a far from ideal 
world when what we. and hope- 
fully our teachers, are all striving 
for is the very best for our 
children. 

Yours faithfully, 

ELIZABETH CRABB, 

Riscombe House,

From Professor Sir Bryan 
Thwaites 

Sir. Rosalind Stott extols the idea 
that children should be taught “to 
establish their true sexual role" 
through even-handed examples of 
the virtues of heterosexuality, 
homosexuality and lesbianism. 

Sir, to confute the lengthy 
arguments In her article would 
take more space than you can 
spare. But I draw attention to her 
basic premise. 

This is that “our whole western 
family structure is based on the 
oppression of women" If this is 
the general view of deputy and 
acting headteachers of inner Lon- 
don schools, then may heaven 
protect their poor pupils form 
such nonsense. 

Yours faithfully. 

BRYAN THWAITES, 

Mtimhorpe, 

Winchester, Hampshire. 

July 1 

From Mr Michael Brucciani 
Sir, Judging from her article, 
Rosalind Sion considers sexual 
activity to be free of any objective, 
disciplinary norms and to be a 
matter of personal choice. Hens we 
have the fundamental conflict, the 
follower of God and the free- 
thinker. The controversy about 
morality and sex education is a 
consequence of this conflict. 

A solution to the conflict would 
be to allow each the freedom to 
follow their own choice. The 
followers of God should be al- 
lowed to reclaim the right of 
parents to deride how their chil- 
dren should be educated within a 
moral framewotk. The freethink- 
ers should be free to teach their 
children whatever they like. 

Judging by the trends in today's' 
liberal society and the increases in 
promiscuity, venereal diseases, 
cervical cancer - , sterility, abortion 
and divorce, the freethinker will 
cease to exist within a couple of 
generations. Thus, the conflict will 
die away without ever restricting 
that tolerance and free choice that 
she considers so important

Theatre controversy 

From the Director of South West 
Arts 

Sir, If Bryan Appleyard (feature, 
July I) truly believes the current 
controversy about transfers of 
subsidised plays from the Na- 
tional Theatre and Royal Shake- 
speare Company to commercial 
theatres has actually highlighted 
the absurdities of their boards' 
policies he entirely misses the 
larger point. 

These transfers are from one 
subsidised London stage to an- 
other commercial one, with the 
odd foreign transfer thrown in. 
Good for London and New York, 
Peter Hall and Trevor Nunn. 

The nation’s taxpayers live 
overwhelmingly outside London 
and certainly not in New York. 
The basic absurdity is that the 
national companies do not see it 
as their primary role to provide 
theatre for lhe nation which 
sustains them, with an ever larger 
slice of the available public 
money. 


We have to offer further subsidy 
to bring the Royal Shakespeare 
Company to the South-west, 
where they are welcome. The 
National Theatre simply doesn’t 
come any more and, despite all 
approaches, simply doesn’t want 
to. 

If Sir Kenneth Cork’s theatre 
enquiry recognises anything, 
many of us hope it will be that the 
real service to the nation is 
provided by companies up and 
down the country, grossly under- 
funded and exceptionally well run 
in relation to both .the National 
and RSC This may bean unpopu- 
lar, indeed impolitic conclusion — 
Sir Kenneth Cork was chairman of 
the RSC until recently - bur it is 
the only one that makes sense if 
serving the whole country's needs 
is to be our guide. 

Yours sincerely, 

MARTIN REWCASTLE, 
Director,South West Arts,

Sale at West Dean 

From the Chairman of The Thir- 
ties Society 

Sir, The letter from the trustees of 
the Edward James Foundation 
(June 28), seeking to justify their 
recent sale at West Dean failed to 
explain why the sale was pursued 
with such unnecessary haste and 
in spite of the fact that the Historic 
Buildings and Monuments 
Commission (English Heritage) 
and many others were anxious 
that Monkton House should be 
preserved for the nation in its 
entirety: 

The trustees state that they are 
“pleased" with the “success” of 
the sale: others may disagree. It 
should be realised that the sale 
only made £4.2 million when 
more had been hoped for and that 
bids for many items failed to reach 
the estimates; that Monkton has 


now been stripped of most of the 
contents that made it so interest- 
ing and that its sad shell is 
probably now difficuli to sell; that 
many furnishings that Edward 
James wanted kept have also been 
removed from West Dean, so 
spoiling its special character as a 
country house of the 1890s; that 
the wilful dismemberment of Ed- 
ward James's achievement as the 
most imaginative British patron of 
the arts of this century has caused 
considerable distress to many who 
work and study at West Dean; and 
that, by their actions, the trustees 
have forfeited the respect due to 
them as the responsible guardians 
of Edward James’s legacy. 

The sale should thus be ac- 
counted a disaster. 

Yours faithfully, 

GAVIN STAMP, Chairman, 
The Thirties Society, 

1 St Chad’s Street, WCI. 


Dismay at radio 
counter-stroke 

From Mr and Mrs Robert Spencer 
Sir. if a parent institutes a 
competition promising a certain 
privilege to the prize-winners, 
waits six months longer than 
originally stated before announc- 
ing the result, and then, owing to 
the misgivings of various aunts 
about the possible abuse of the 
privilege, declares the competition 
and the privilege to be cancelled 
for the foreseeable future, he is a 
bad parent. Such betrayal of trust 
would reap a justly deserved 
reward of antagonism and dis- 
affection. 

This is. in effect, what the Home 
Office has done in withdrawing its 
promise to issue licences to 
community radio stations. It has 
done it not to children, but to 
groups of enterprising young peo- 
ple willing to spend months 
ploughing energy and money into 
projects which would provide 
activity, stimulus, self-respect and 
mutual understanding among 
sizeable sections of population in 
our big cities and elsewhere, who 
now have their hopes dashed, 
their trust betrayed and their work 
wasted. We know, being the 
parent of an applicant. 

The Cabinet committee should 
meet again and agree after all to 
stand by their promise. Trust 
breeds trust and responsibility. 
Betrayal does not

Engineers shortage 

From Mr D. A. W v Taylor 
Sir. Your readers and Professor 
Herbst (July 2) should be aware 
that one-year conversion courses 
already exist for 18+ school 
leavers who wish to study for an 
engineering degree but who lack 
the required entry and foundation 
qualifications. 

For many decades a number of 
universities, including my own, 
have offered “preliminary year" 
one-year courses to fulfil exactly 
the need of such students. In these 
courses students have the added 
benefit of tutorage by professional 
chartered engineers. Unfortu- 
nately, such courses do not attract 
the mandatory support grant and, 
in spite of much hand-wringing, 
universities can no longer afford 
the resources for such courses. 

Here is plainly a good idea with 
the apparatus already in existence 
(just) at low cost and high effec- 
tiveness. Hie apparatus is about to 
wither away only to be (expen- 
sively?) recreated elsewhere if 
Professor Herbst is supported. 
Yours sincerely, 

ADRIAN TAYLOR.

Alas, poor Pete 

From Mr Bryan Ewing . 

Sir, I am rather disturbed by the 
British Museum exhibition of 
“Pete Marsh", alias Lindow Man. 
The attitude seems to be that since 
this is a discovery of such age and 
importance, the actual substance 
is overlooked. 

This is a man not a fossil nor a 
photograph. It is tasteless and 
repellent to display his mortal 
remains; which 'should be given 
the respect accorded to the more 
recently departed. 

Yours sincerely,

Open to view 

From Dr Tim Paine 
Sir, Mr Ball’s letter today (July I) 
recalls an incident on a recent visit 
to Mt Athos. Arriving at one of the 
monasteries, my friend and I were 
warmly greeted by a venerable 
orthodox monk and offered the 
customary coffee, raki and 
loukoumL 

After exhausting our repertoire 
of Greek phrases for pious pil- 
grims, we ventured a few words in 
English (you never know . . . ), 
only to be asked (in German) if we 
were German. (It was our back 
packs). 

"Actually, we’re English." 

“I say — so am IP 

Are the English only instantly 
recognisable to foreigners!? 

Yours truly.

The brain drain 

From Professor Paul J. Korshin 
Sir, The recruitment by US 
universities of British academic 
talent, as Professor James Manor 
notes (June 21), does take place, 
but it is not a new phenomenon 
and it is not something that need 
cause apocalyptic fears of the 
extensive loss of top British 
scholars and researchers to the 
States. 

Even in the years of US 
universities' greatest expansion, 
1960-68, the number of British 
dons to move to posts in the US 
was quite modest Then, as now, 
these positions were chiefly in the 
biomedical and applied sciences, 
and the chief reason for a British 
academic's moving to the US was 
maritaL i.e^ marriage to an 
American. 

US immigration procedures are 
not especially hospitable to the 
non-US academic who wishes to 
relocate: denization (the “green 
card”) still lakes at least five years. 
The recruiters who so much 
perturb Professor Manor could 
only be offering temporary posts; 


permanency^ or tenure, in US 
universities is not automatically 
based on time served, but is in fact 
highly competitive. In my per- 
sonal experience, more than two 
thirds of the British dons in arts 
and humanities who have sought 
long-term posts in the States have 
not obtained tenure or could not 
accept it because of visa problems. 

Nor is there a plethora of lop 
posts available in US institutions 
today. US universities suffered 
severe cutbacks in the 1970s, 
somewhat similar to those that 
British higher education has been 
undergoing in the 1980s. and 
prospects for future growth are 
very bleak. Arts and humanities 
faculties in particular have shrunk 
by about one third in the last 
decade: the best we can anticipate 
is a steady state. 

As for the wave of retirements 
that we expect in the US in the 
first half of lhe .1990s. our aca- 
demic planners are already 
stockpiling younger scholars, most 
of them obviously Americans, in 
postgraduate schools and post- 
doctoral programs to be ready as 


replacements. For a typical va- 
cancy leading to tenure, an institu- 
tion in the US can now expect to 
receive 100 to 300 applications: 
with such an oversupply of ex- 
cellent talent, widespread recruit- 
ment in the UK will be as unlikely 
as it will be unnecessary. 

Of course there has always been 
a trickle of leading British dons 
moving to the US .just as a smaller 
number of US academics has 
taken posts in the UK. Such 
exchanges are part of a healthy 
international academic system 
and reflect customs that began in 
the Enlightenment. 

They will doubtless continue; 
no one would argue against them. 
But there is no credible evidence 
to suggest that the trickle is about 
to widen into a stream or that the 
British Government is putting the 
nation's academic institutions at 
risk from this quarter. 

Yours faithfully.

JULY 7 1936 

Since 1931 Japan had pursued a 
policy of aggression towards China 
culminating in Us occupation Of 
Manchuria. Open warfare broke 
out with a clash between Japanese 
and Chinese troops on July 7 1937 
near Peking. From that day until 
Japan's defeat at the end of World 
War II, China contained three 
/actions — Nationalists, 
Communists and the Japanese; 
each of these uw in conflict with 
the other turn; from 1943 the civil 
war continued. 


ON THIS DAY 


JAPAN S YEAR O F WAR 

THIRD OF CHINA 
OVERRU N 

From Our Own Correspondent 

SHANGHAI, JULY 6 
After a year’s fighting the Japa- 
nese armed forces nominally occu- 
py one-third of China — 300,000 
square miles with an estimated 
population of 130,000,000 — but 
large tracts of y frfo vast area are in 
the of guerrillas. 

Japanese official figures give the 
number of troops lolled up to Junei 
15 as 510,109 Chinese and 36,629 
Japanese. Foreign estimates put 
the total casualties at 1,000,000 
Chinese and 300,000 Japanese. 
Civilian casualties will never he^ 
estimated, but the number off 
refugees runs into 1,000,000 and! 
nobody can predict the final toll off 
war, famine, flood, and disease In 
this tragic country. 

The Japanese now exercise nom- 
inal control over the territory 
bounded by a line running from 
Hangchow through Wuhu along; 
the Yangtze to Hukow, north- 
eastward to Shihpakhen, through 
Tsienshan. Liuan, Cheng- 
yangkwan and Mengcheng to the 
flood area, and all the country 
bounded by the bend of the Yellow 
River northward into Inner Mon- 
golia: They also occupy Amoy, but 
the Chinese still control the area 
around Haichow, the eastern ter- 
minus of the Lunghai Railway in 
Shantung- 

NOON SILENCE 
The leaders of both sides to-day 
issued statements in connection 
with the anniversary tomorrow of 
the outbreak ofdwstilities on July 7 
last year. The Chinese Govern- 
ment have decreed that July 7 be 
observed as a national memorial 
day in future with a three-minutes’ 
silence at noon. General Chiang 
Kai-shek reaffirms China's resolve 
to continue the struggle and ap- 
peals to the people of Japan to 
restrain “the madness of their 
militarists" which is destroying 
both nations, and reminds friendly 
countries, for whose help the 
Chinese people are grateful that 
“peace is indivisible and isolation 
impracticable." 

General Hata, the Japanese 
commander, who reiterates his 
intention to pursue the campaign 
“until the present Hankow regime 
collapses," eb*™* that Japan has 
often “sacrificed strategic advan- 
tages in order the better to respect] 
the Interests of neutral Powers," 
and has openly taken prompt steps 
to redress incidents to the satisfac- 
tion of the nations concerned. 
WATCH ON TERRORISTS 
Owing to fear of terrorist out- 
rages special precautions were, 
instituted to-night to preserve 
.order in Sha n g h ai More than 
5,000 police, 450 men of The 
Seafortb Highlanders, and 600 
volunteers in the International 
'Settlement, and 4,000 police in the 
French Concession as well as U.S. 
marines are now either on duty or 
ready for emergency calls. A rigor- 
ous search of motor-cars, pedestri- 
ans, and buildings ha s begun. 

According to Chinese reports the 
high-way between Yunnanfu and 
Burma has been completed at a 
[cost of 32,000,000 and will reduce 
the time for motor traffic to four 
days, though private travel is 
discouraged owing to lack of petrol 
and spares along the route and the 
danger of earthfalls. 

Other Chinese reports state that 
the Soviet is buying tea worth 
$15,000,000 to facilitate the pur- 
chase of war supplies and that 
engineers have started to survey a 
railway between Szechwan and 
Tibet in order to develop commu- 
nications for prolonged resistance 
in the interior. 


Setting to rights 

From the Rev. D. G. Richards 
Sir, I am surprised that Miss 
Cauchl (July 3) should use a cloth 
for the dinner table (unless she is 
setting it for children or animals, 
who alone eat dinner in the middle 
of the day). For a dinner party, 
according to Nancy Milford, the 
table should not be covered, so 
that its sheen may -reflect . the 
jewels of the ladies and the 
starched shirt-fronts of the gentle- 
men. 

Yours faithfully, 

DEREK RICHARDS,

From Mr R, T. Rivington 
Sir. The spoon and fork laid 
crossways for family or friends is 
for pudding rather than dessert. In 
a large formal meal with strangers, 
cutlery and plate is laid for each 
course in turn, to be taken up by 
the diner from the outside, leaving 
him with no doubt about what 
they are to be used for. 

Yours faithfully, 

R.T. RIVINGTON,

In other words 

From Mr John Rashley 
Sir, Recently I was prescribed an 
inhaler upon which was printed 
the dosage measured' in 
“actuations”. 

Mercifully, my GP told me to 
have “a couple of puffs" at a lime;

JsSsi UNIVERSITY; O 



Working with modern miracles 


Biotechnology has 


produced a host of new 


products and services. 


Neil Harris examines 


this fast expanding area 
and the opportunities 
that it can now offer. 

The protein in Sainsbury's “Savory Pie’, 
ihe enzymes in biological washing 
powder and the pregnancy test available 
through chemist's shops are among the 
products of biotechnology. It is an area 
of science in which rapid advances are 
being achieved resulting in new products 
and serv ices. 

Many millions of pounds are now 
spent every year on research and 
development in biotechnology. The 
Science and Engineering Research Coun- 
cil alone currently has an annual spend 
of £3.6 million on biotechnology re- 
search. Millions more are finding their 
way into equipment for processing plant 
and the manufacture of products using 
biotechnological techniques. Some of 
these products are already on sale; more 
will inevitably follow. What is biotech- 
nology? is it important? Will it create 
more jobs and if so for whom? 

Biotechnology is not new. For thou- 
sands of years man has been making 

Many ethical questions are 
being raised by this business 

bread and wine through the fermentation 
of yeast, a living organism. This use of 
organisms to manufacture products is 
what biotechnology is all about It 
suddenly moved into a higher gear in the 
early seventies with the discovery of 
genetic engineering. It gave us the means 
to take molecules out of a living cell and 
change their structure. 

Biotechnology is important because it 
presents us with new ways of making 
novel chemical compounds which are 
useful in a whole range of industries. 
Industries which are of fundamental 
significance for our physical and mental 
wellbeing, including medicine and phar- 
maceuticals. food and agriculture, horti- 
culture. chemicals, and energy. Like 
nuclear physics it also raises ethical 
questions because it gives man the tools 
to meddl e. shou Id. ht be. foolish -enough 1 
to do so. with his own genetic structure, 
the chemical base which makes us the 
people we are. 

During the last decade a new industry 
has emerged. Now there are over three 
hundred firms in the UK actively 
engaged in some area of biotechnology. 
Some of these are the large companies 
including such big names as Boots. ICl. 
Allied Breweries and BP. Many are small 
ventures set up specifically to capitalise 



on the products of ihe application of 
novel techniques. 

The industry has quickly developed an 
infrastructure of manufacturers, contract 
researchers, consultants, process equip- 
ment suppliers, information providers 
and publishers. Many universities, estab- 
lishments where the basic research 
began, are now commercially involved. 
Imperial Biotechnology, a firm set up by 
Imperial College, manufactures medical 
diagnostic kits. Leicester University has 
set up the Leicester Biocentre in collabo- 
ration with industrial concerns, particu- 
larly those in the food industry. 

The people at (he heart of biotechno- 
logical developments are microbiolo- 
gists. biochemists, chemists and 
chemical engineers. It is also creating 
work for pharmacologists, physiologists, 
mechanical and electronic engineers and 
information scientists. Those in greatest 
demand have Ph.Ds in some aspect of 
molecular biology. 

The prosperity of the industry is based 
on a heavy commitment to research. 
Graduates without a higher degree but 
posessing a good honours degree can 
sometimes find a niche in a research 
department or in the major fields of 
product development and quality con- 
trol. Many biological products cannot be 
marketed until they have passed through 
a lengthy screening process. For a new 
drug this can take ten years. There are 
similar, though shorter development 
systems for the acceptance of animal 
feedstocks, insecticides and related prod- 
ucts which must pass through toxicologi- 
cal and environmental tests organ ised 
and carried out by biological scientists 
and chemists. 

Many of those in the sales and 
marketing functions of these companies 
are graduates in the disciplines which 
give them a thorough understanding of 
the products they are bringing to the 
market. 

Industry is beginning to differentiate 
between biological scientists, favouring 
those who have studied courses which 
include studies of living organisms at the 
molecular scale. ‘This is hard biology', 
says a leading industrialist, ‘whereas 
categorising plants and insects, watching 
iHern grow and studying their behaviour 
is soft biology. Industry needs more of 
the hard variety and few of the soft.’ 

A growing number of universities offer 
degree courses in biotechnology, but 
because these are relatively new and the 
quality of their graduates untested, 
industry at the moment conservatively 
prefers those who haw studied in depth 
one of the subjects fundamental to 
biotechnology rather than those with an 
overall view of the subject. This may 


change as more graduates with degrees in 
biotechnology become available and are 
found to be a useful industrial asset. 

Biotechnological processing is exact- 
ing because much of it must be carried 
out in a sterile environment The 
organism required for the process must 
be the only one present This adds to the 
difficulty from an engineering point of 
view and continuous biological monitor- 
ing of the process by biochemists and 
microbiologists is essential. 

Biotechnology is seen in some quarters 
as the technology which will provide the 
next major revolution after the silicon 
chip. Just as electronics is altering the 
way we do things now biotechnology 
may change our lives in the 1990s. There 
are already biodegradable plastics for use 
as sutures in hospital operations. Insulin 
and growth hormones are produced! 
using the techniques of biotechnology 
and there are several microbial pesti- 
cides on the market. 

In the future more drugs will be made 
from natural products rather than via the 
synthesis of chemicals. Biotechnology 
will aid the identification of viruses and 

Prosperity is based on heavy 
commitment to research 

the manufacture of vaccines. Tests will 
soon be available to tell us when food is 
too old and should be thrown away. The 
new techniques will help us to breed 
better plants, more resistant to the 
dangers which are normally present in 
their environment and animals more 
efficient in the production of meat or 
milk. 

In Brazil plants are already used to 
make fuel oil and no doubt when our oil 
reserves are depleted a time wiU come- 
when biotechnological techniques, cur- 
rently uneconomic, will produce our 
petrol. More importantly, through the 
manufacture of protein biotechnology 
can produce food without the need for 
vast areas of land or a suitable climate. 
The prospects are inspiring. 

Meanwhile this is an industry which is 
definitely here to stay. No doubt some of 
the minnows will find the going tough if 
their products do not come along fast 
enough to pay the heavy research bills. 
Others will be gobbled up by the large 
companies. But the demand for molecu- 
lar biologists, particularly with research 
experience is likely to slowly increase 
and the industry will compete with 
others for the services of the declining 
output of chemical engineering 
graduates.

Sexual symbolism at the altar 


The sexual analogy for God's 
relationship with humanity - 
the central idea proposed by 
Cardinal Willebrands to the 
Archbishop of Canterbury in 
pressing his objections to 
women priests - is an awkward 
point for the church to negoti- 
ate. 

The trouble with male- 
female imagery in 1986 is that 
actual relationships between 
real men and real women have 
yet to settle in a new mould, 
and generalizations about 
them are unreliable. That does 
not disprove the cardinal's 
point; indeed it makes it more 
difficult to refute. 

The Hebrew Bible uses the' 
bride-bridegroom image for 
God's relationship with Israel, 
and the New Testament for 
Christ's relationship with the 
church. The argument against 
women priests employs both 
metaphors. In both cases what 
is being referred to is dearly 
something other than the con- 
temporary idea of an equal 
symmetrical power-sharing, 
inter-changeable marriage 
partnership. 

The feminist word for that 
earlier model is patriarchy, 
and the feminist goal is to 
stamp it oul Nevertheless 
their battle is not yet won. 
And it is by no means certain 
that the final pattern to 
emerge from foe present fluid- 
ity of marriage will match that 
fashionable ideal The conser- 
vative model still exerts its 
power, not least among newly- 
weds. 

Mystics have often em- 


ployed sexual imagery too to 
describe poetically their sense 
of God as a lover. St Theresa’s 
moment of ecstacy is the most 
famous example. Mystical 
writing sometimes has foe 
flavour of love poetry, some- 
times much more than a 
flavour, and there is a strange 
resemblance between mysti- 
cism and eroticism, even foe 
wilder and darker side ofiL 

Some spiritual disciplinary 
practices seem to belong to the 
literature of sado-masochism. 
But mystical references to 
male-female imagery would 
not be at home in The- 
Guardian's Women's Page. 
The “mate" element, the di- 
vine prindple in foe mystical 
parallel, is aggressive, pene- 
trating, active; the “female”, 
foe human soul, is passive, 
receptive, even wanting to be 
ravished and abused. 

Feminism would have it 
that all those images of sexual- 
ity are no more than condi- 
tioned reflexes from centuries 
of male power and privilege. 
They may be, but the conclu- 
sion cannot so far be said to be 
certain. The ideological trap is 
that people see what ideology 
tells them to see. 


It tefis them that males and 
females are the same; that 
there is an underlying tnilh in 
foe androgynous levelling of 
sexual roles, behaviour and 
appearance that was advanced 
in the bisexual sixties. It does 
not let them see what is 
obvious at foe average sum- 
mer bus queue: foal girts still 


dress prettHy, with an instinct 
to attract by vulnerability, and 
dream of Prince Charming, 
while weddings and small 
babies. 

And what is foe meaning of 
a recent chat-show consensus 
among several celebrated 
modem and liberated young 
females, that power and au- 
thority in a man is a most 
potent aphrodisiac? Match 
point to Cardinal 
Willebrands, perhaps. 

If those supposedly atavistic 
male-female role models are 
so enduring, it may be because 
there is a substantial dement 
of nature in them, after all, 
and foal foe role analogue to 
male-female is active-passive, 
contrary to foe enlightened 
convention of the age. 

In that case, each proposed 
extension of sexual equality 
would have to be proved on its 
merits. That would be a severe 
blow to the case for female 
ordination, which relies heavi- 
ly on the argument from 
analogy with other profes- 
sions, and on what general 
society has come to accept as 
foe right principle of sexual 
equality. 

If a priest were a function- 
ary, one who just happened to 
do certain things, there would 
be no reason why the function 
could not be discharged as 
well by a woman. But if the 
priest were a unique and 
central part of the 
incamational machine of 
grace and salvation which is 
called foe church, and if grace 


and salvation are similar in 
some mysterious and pro- 
found way to sexual feeling (as 
foe mystics testify), then the 
maleness or femaleness of foe 
priest would hardly be irrele- 
vant 


That is to suppose many 
things, including many things 
which the Church of England 
does not suppose about itself. 
But many individual priests 
do: they fed their long-term 
cure of souls to be a drama of 
subtle spiritual wooing, weav- 
ing their web to catch their 
prey, foe coy and fickle souL 
to lead it gently or roughly to 
its surrender and abandon- 
ment in foe divine mercy. 


By analogy, foe soul is foe 
female in foe courtship; wait- 
ing: God, the pursuer and 
lover, is foe male, seeking 
union. The climax of foe 
drama is in the Eucharist, 
where foe activity of the 
sacrament meets the passivity 
of the soul, and one invades 
foe other. The liturgy is thus a 
dance in which male courts 
and catches female. 


That poses foe question: 
may a woman stand surrogate 
for that maleness, without 
emptying the symbolism of its 
potency? If foe relationship 
between God and humanity is 
a love affair, and foe Eucharis- 
tic rite is its primary symbol, 
foe sex of the principle agent 
of foe rite is significant That 
at least seems to be what 
Cardinal Willebrands sweetly 
invites foe Church of England 
to consider.

OBITUARY 

MR JAGJIVAN RAM 

Veteran leader of India’s ‘Untouchables 


A- 


Mr Jagjivan Ram who died 
yesterday ai the afe of 78 
played a major role in Indian 
politics for over 30 years - for 
much of which time he was a 
cabinet minister - and was the 
unchallenged leader of the 
“Untouchables” , the Sched- 
uled Castes. 

Known - as many senior 
Biharis are - as Babujche had 
been a senior member of Mrs 
Gandhi's Cabinet. But, de- 
ploring her imposition of 
emergency rule, in 1977 he 
broke away to form his own 
Congress for Democracy Par- 
ty, thus playing an important 
pan, in alliance with the 
Janata Party, in her defeat in 
the elections of that year. 

Later, after a period as 
leader of (he Opposition he 
rejoined the Indian National 
Congress and in 1981 became 
President of the All Indian 
Congress Committee. 

Jagjivan Ram was bom in 
Arrah in Bihar in 1908 into a 
family of Untouchables as the 
people following menial occu- 
pations below foe Hindu caste 
system were called before 
Mahatma Gandhi renamed 
them Harijans - the people of 
God. 

Jagjivan Ram's father, how- 
ever, was an exceptional man, 
a preacher and, in the eyes of 
local people, a saint So a local 
schoolmaster found a place for 
the boy to begin his edocatfon; 
a chance in those days denied 
to most of his community. 

He did well, matriculating 
in the first division and was 
fortunate enough to attract the 
attention of Pandit Madan 
Mohan Malaviya. a leading 
figure in nationalist politics. 
With his help Ram was able to 
go to Bananas Hindu Univer- ‘ 
sity where he began to display 
a talent for debating and 
political discussion. 

From Banaras, he went on 
to Calcutta University where 
he took his BSc and became 
involved in social work for his 
community. His fluency as a 
speaker, bis commitment to 
soda! work and his success in 
climbing out of the strait 
jacket that lowly birth im- 
posed on most of his contem- 
poraries. all pointed towards a 
political career. 

He was noticed and helped 
by Dr Rajendra Prasad - later 
to be India's first President - 
and M ahatma G andhi, al- 
ready deeply engaged in his 
mission to raise the depressed 
classes from the degradation 
which Hindu society had so 



and 


long imposed on them, saw in 
Jagjivan Ram a promising 
supporter. 

After leaving university, 
Jagjivan Ram had become 
involved in the agricultural 
labour movement in Bihar 
and he was also associated 
with various branches of the 
trade union movement 

He first became a member 
of the AH India Congress 
Committee - an important 
step in a political career - in 
1940; the same year be was 
imprisoned by the British for 


Employment 
Rehabilitation. 

He went on to become, 

twice. Minister in the vital 
food and agriculture Ministry; 
he was also Railways Minister 
(a post in which he incurred 
some criticism for looking 
after his own community’s 
interests somewhat overzeal- 
ously) and, . perhaps 
surprisingly, he made, an ex- 
cellent impression as Defence 
Minister for four years. 

He was generally wed re - , 
garded as an administrator^ 
but he caused Mrs .Gandhi 
some embarrassment in 1967 
when it was disclosed by 
political opponents that he 
bad not bothered to put.in his 
income tax returns, for some 
years. U was not a large sum 
that was involved. Jand the 
arrears were promptly .paid, 
forgetfulness being advanced 
as the excuse. 

He was a skilful politician, 
bland in . style but rough, 
experienced and farsighted, 
and when Mrs Gandhi pro- 
claimed her Emergency in - 
1 975 rumours were nfethat be 
was deeply upset 

Certainly he had. been re- 
garded as a possible replace- 
ment for her when : it was 



i, Jf 


his' political artivities and was ' considered likely, that: she'C 
released, to be locked up again WO uid resign because of the 








- j :

tf**, n 


in 1942 during the Congress 
Party's Quit India campaign. 

His commitment to the 
nationalist cause and his own 
growing national importance 
were recognized in 1946 when 
he represented the Scheduled 
Castes as their spokesman 
before the British Cabinet 
mission seeking a constitu- 
tional settlement, and it was in 
his community as well as in 
his home state of Bihar, that 
he built up the power base 
which was to make him an 
indispensable member of In- 
dian Cabinets over the next 
three decades. 

From September 1946 until 
his resignation in February 
1977 - with a short break in 
1 962-63 - he was a minister in 
charge of a variety of major 
portfolios. 

The break was as a result of 
the extraordinary political de- 
vice known as the Kamaraj 
Plan when a number of minis- 
ters were induced to resign 
office in order to work for the 
party in the countryside. 

This came to be regarded as 
a means of easing out certain 
unpopular figures but Jagjivan 
Ram was back in less than a 
year as Minister for Labour,

against her for: electoral . 
offences. . ' 

What he (fid. in Set. was to 
bide his time untilvNfxsGan^ 
dhi decided to hold elections 
and he then resigned from her 
party and founded bis- own 
Congress for Democracy. . • 

This formed an electoral 
alliance with. theJapataParty - 
an amalgam of four .opposi- 
tioa groups ledby another old 
rival of. Mrs Gandhi. - the 
octogenarian, Mr - Moratji 
Desai. Jagjivan Ram made no 
secret of bis dislike: of 'Mrs 
Gandhi’s authoritarian, rule 
and the action of p tie so 
influential in deserting, her 
side, played no small part 
toppling her at flic . 1977 * ? 
elections. 

At first he declined office 
under Mr Desai but subse- 
quently changed his mmdand 
was Defence Minister again 
from 1977 to 1979. After the 
collapse of the Janata coali- 
tion and Desaf s resignation as 
leader of Janata, Jagjivan 
Ram succeeded him as l eader 
of the party in opposition but 
resigned in 1980, after repeat- 
ed splits in the party 

Subsequently he rejoined 
the Indian National Congress.

PROFESSOR ALAN GEMMELL 


■ Professor Alan Gem m ell, 
OBE, who died at his home on 
the Isle of Arran on July 5, at 
the age of 73. was Professor of 
Biology in the University of 
Keele from 1950 to 1977. 

But be will be best known to 
the millions of the green- 
fingered who heard the broad- 
casts, as a leading personality 
for over thirty years on the 
popular BBC Radio pro- 
gramme Gardeners’ Question 
Time. 

As the scientific member of 
a panel which included Fred 
Loads and Bill Sowerbutts, he 
became a household name. 
And the contrast his academic 
approach brought to the 
foamier deliberations of his 
fellow panellists, provided one 
of the tensions listeners grew 
to look forward to over the 



years. 

The disagreements between 
the highly qualified biologist 
and the professional seedsmen 
on the merits of magnesium 
versus farmyard muck, ech- 
oed on the platforms of many 
a village hall up and down tire 
country, and the tetchinesss 
which this element introduced 
into the programme, was, by 
common consent, one of its 
enduring virtues. 

In all. Gemmell made near- 
ly fifteen hundred broadcasts 
and he also wrote a number of 
popular books 


Alan Robertson Gemmell 
was bom on May 10, 1913, 
and educated at Ayr Academy 
and the University of Glas- 
gow. From J935 to J937 he 
was a Commonwealth Fund 
Fellow at the University of 
Minnesota, where he took his 
MS. 

From 1937 to 1941 he was 
engaged in agricultural re- 
search at the West of Scotland 
Agricultural College, during 
which time he took his Glas- 
gow PhD. 

From 1942 to 1944 he was a 
lecturer in Botany at Glasgow 
and had a year at the West 
Midland Forensic Science 
Labors rtoiy as a biologist, 
before taking up an appoint- 


ment as a lecturer in ; 
Manchester University, wfac 
he stayed for five years before 
joining the ranks of the 
founder-professors of the- then 
University College of North 
Staffs, now Keele University 
. Gardeners Question. Time 
began in 1947 and GerameU 
joined it two years' later, to 
complete a triumvirate of 
disputants which 'was' to be- 
come familiar to every home 
where the soil and its prod no- 
tions are cherished. . 

For the next thirty. years' 
Gemmell defended his scien- 
tific opinions against ' the 
“muck and mystery*' school of 
thought propounded by Bill 
and Fred. Even after the death 
of Loads in 1981 the debate*- 
did not slacken in its intensity.^ 

Finally In 1982 after 33 
years withg Gardener' Ques- 
tion Time Gemmell left to 
move lo ITV. . 

Among his many .books 
were The Sunday Gardener, 
The Penguin Book of Basic 
Gardening and The Practical 
Gardeners ’s Encyclopaedia. 

On the academic side be 
was the author of many papers 
in scientific journals and was 
Associate Editor of Chronica 
Botanica Vol L which ap- 
peared in 1935.’ 

He married, in 1942, Janet 
Ada Boyd Duncanson. They 
bad two sons.

Giengrove group and the 
youngest of three brothers in a 
family associated with the 
British meat industry over 
four generations, has died at 
the age of 62. 

A Sandhurst cadet, he saw 
action during foe war as a tank 
officer in North Africa and 
Italy, where he was wounded. 


He began to establish him- 
self in the meat business 
during the difficult trading 
conditions of the late 1940s; 
first, with a small factory at 
Islington, then with a canning 
factory in the Channel Islands. 


His farsightedness led. him 
into providing butchery ser-

Science report 


Magnesium heart link 

By Thomson Prentice, Science Correspondent 


Evidence that magnesium defi- 
ciency co eld be an important 
factor in some forms of heart 
condition has been produced 
by specialists in the United 
States. 


The stady, at the Los Ange- 
les County University of 
Southern California nwiiimi 


centre, does not prove that 

v V — 


They used a method of 
directly measuring magnesium 
in blood cells, known as atomic 
absorption 

spectrophotometry, in tests on 
103 patients in a coronary care 
unit in Los Angeles, and found 
that 53 percent had abnormal- 
ly low magnesium levels. 

The method is considered 
mach more accurate than the 
standard test in which tire 
magnesium levels circulating 
in the blood are measured. The 
metallic element, essential for 
proper fractioning of muscle 
and nervous tissue, is found 
mostly in the cells, with Jess 
than 1 per ' cent in blood 
circulation. 


such a deficiency causes or *■ 
exacerbates conditions such as 
cardiac arrhythmia, but does 
indicate a link, according to Dr 
Robert Rode, one of the 
specialists. 

If further stmlies did prove a 
relationship, the hnpiw-aKi^ 
for prevention and treatment 
con Id be important, as 
d evidences could be easfly 
corrected with magnesium 

supplements, he said. 

In farther study at the it 
university medical school's 
cardiology division, magne- 
sium-deficient heart- paatienfa 
are now being given supple- 
ments to see how tire treatment 
affects arrhy thmia- angina 
and other conditions; and how - 
it alters the risk of a heart 
attack.

Celia Brayfield 

Rock 

Rod Stewart 
Wembley Stadium 

Never having seen Rod Stew- 
art in performance before. I 
was struck by how instantly 
familiar his show seemed. As 
he booled the first of many 
footballs into the crowd, the 
band locked into an efficient 
chug that turned out to be 
“Hollegs”. It is curious that 
the same R.'n" B formula, the 
staple of the small-time bar- 
band. should work to such 
effect on an audience of these 
vast proportions, but “Sweet 
Little Rock V Ro/Jer” set 
them dancing in the aisles ana 
Stewart's microphone^stana 
described unlikely arcs in the 
area around his head. 

BuL despite such touch- 
stones from bis days as a 
serious blues-rock vocalist, 
Stewart's rise to the status of 
international institution has 
exacted a heavy cost on nts 
music. His interpretations of 
songs like Robert Palmers 
“Some Guys Have All the 
Luck” and Otis Reddings 
“Dock of ihe Bay” succeeded 
m ironing out all the 
idiosyncracies of the ongnats. 
transforming them into, ho- 
mogenous pop songs in a 
process redolent of that em- 
ployed by Pat Boone, who 
used to vandalize numbers 
like “Tuui Fruui” for use in 

his mainstream reponoire. 

The distinctive croaking 
voice that gained Stewart a 
vast audience in the Seventies 



Opera: Paul Griffiths reviews Glyndeboume’s Porgy and Bess 

Something vital urgently said 




.. • - - / * V .■■■?! i WYl . . ...... . 

Porgy (Willard White) discovers Bess has left him to go to New York 


There can scarcely before have 
been a Glyndcboumc season of 
odder novelties. First there was the 
pocket Boccanegra. and now Porgy 
and Bess, incongruities of style 
replacing those of size. It is not just 
that, as the opera's conductor 
Simon Rattle has pre-emptively 
pointed out. here wc have charac- 
ters with “plenty of nothing” 
singing roan audience with “plenty 
of plenty” - though that might be 
inclined to make the dinner inter- 
val a fraction penitential even 
without the dismal weather of 
Saturday night. No. the more 
worrying mismatch has more to do 
with colour than liquidity. 

On one IcveL Porgy and Bess is a 
princely gift to black culture from a 
composer who had drawn so much 
on that account: an opera for black 
singers, reluming to them the 
blues, jazz and spirituals on which 
Gershwin had creatively feasted, 
and perhaps in the island scene 
going further, restoring an impor- 
tant source of black American 
music in the drumming of Africa. 
Bui the collaborative nature of the 
work is repeatedly subject to 
question when there is such a dear 
division within it between the 
white characters who speak and the 


black who sing. This implicitly sets 
a gap between a predominantly 
white audience and the cast, and 
makes it hard to find the correct 
response 10 . what is a magnificently 
alive show; a response that is not 
patronizing, nor neglectful "of the 
issues that arc at the bean of the 
work. 

For. if Porgy is about problems 
of sympathetic understanding be- 
tween audience and cast, it is also 
about similar problems on the pan 
of the characters with relation to 
each other and indeed to them- 
selves. Those problems come from 
the task Gershwin had set himself. 
To the extent that he was still 
essentially a song-writer, his char- 
acters express themselves most 
fully in songs: Gant's “Summer- 
time”. the love duet for the central 
couple (“Bess, you is my woman'll. 
Sportin' Life's “It ain’t necessarily 
so” and so on. But since opera 
demands also dialogues and transi- 
tions. these song-founded charac- 
ters have to come to terms with 
other kinds of music..and much of 
the pathos of the piece arises from 
their attempts to break through the 
limits of regular song phraseology, 
or to impose those limits in an 


effort to contain and so compre- 
hend a more complex world. The 
scene on the island between Crown 
and Bess, for instance, gains its 
high force from this tension. 

So it seemed, at any rate, on 
Saturday, given two excellent inter- 
preters of these roles: Gregg Baker 
looks and sounds splendid as the 
Drum Major of this M arrack, and 
Cynthia Haymon's slightly smoky 
delivery allows Bess to be touching 
without one forgetting she is also 
strong enough to be a whore. Also 
excellent at this point, and indeed 
throughout the evening, was Mr 
Rati(c*s direction of the London 
Philharmonic Orchestra. This is 
music he quite clearly loves to play, 
but he keeps his eyes wide open 
while he enjoys it there is a keen 
precision at fast speeds, a close care 
for rhythmic detail and a sumptu- 
ous spreading of the treats in the 
orchestration. 

And this quite outstanding musi- 
cal performance is joined by a 
production, from Trevor Nunn, 
that offers teeming life in the 
clappcd-out clapboard comer of 
Catfish Row that John Gunter's set 
brings to the stage- Ladders and 
balconies open out a vertical 


dimension, hut there is still re- 
markably iiulc space for such an 
abundance of always pointful 
movement and business (the fight 
between Crown and Robbins rath- 
er stands out in a context of this vi- 
brant lifelikeness). Mr Nunn also 
hits the spot when the stage is 
relatively quiet, as at the end of the 
scene between Sportin' Life and 
Bess, where the wide boy lounges az 
the back smoking in wait while she 
walks slowly towards her hut. 
evidently thinking the full-blown 
fantasy on his music that we hear 
from the pit 

Sportin' Life is acted without 
undue exaggeration and sung with 
ringing confidence by Damon Ev- 
ans. Among others in the cast, 
Harolvn Blackwell has a particular 
clarity and leanness as Clara, 
contrasting with the richer, warm- 
er. deeply appealing Serena of 
Cynthia Garcy. Bruce Hubbard 
sings and acts a nobly attractive 
Jake, white Willard White's more 
constrained style fils him for 
Poigy's wide range of expression, 
from nonchalance to anger or 
incomprehension. He. and indeed 
the whole production, convinces 
one this opera has something vital 
it wants to say.

Bracknell Festival 

South Hill Park 

The best sub-plot at this year’s 
Bracknell Festival turned out 
to involve the sequential ap- 
pearances on Saturday after- 
noon of Don Cherry and 
! Bobby Bradford, two trumpet- 
ers whose names are inextrica- 
bly linked with the historic 
experiments of Ornette Cole- 
man in the tale Fifties and 
early Sixties. 

Bradford, the lesser-known 
of the two. appeared with 
Freebop. a 12-piece band con- 
vened by the British drummer 
John Stevens. Content to play 


commissions, performances 
and awards to young artists 
and composers.

Sylvano Busotti 
Almeida Theatre 

It is difficult to know whether 
to be amused t>r angered by 
the sheer gall of the Italian 
composer Sylvano Busotti, yet 
another figure being honoured 
by this year's Almeida Festi- 
val. Perhaps in the later 
concert on Saturday, a staging 
of his Pianohar pour Ph&drc. 
one would have been better 
able to appreciate the essential 
theatricality of his art. But in 
the pieces given here so val- 
iantly by the Royal Academy 
of Music's Manson Ensemble 
in. as it were, concert versions, 
one was frankly struck by the 
paucity of Busoni's musical 
invention. 

Undoubtedly he would not 
want me to judge on purely 
musical grounds a work like 
Rondo di scena (1978) for 
flautist and several flutes. 
Here the composer in his note 
makes clear that a bathtub and 
a single dancer — this is a 
Narcissus story — are indis- 

right arm and a glove gaffer- 
taped on at the wrist, ham- 


sound as if from the round 
earth's imagined comers. And

In similar vein Dai. d'mmi.

storyline largely evaded, it 
seemed, by the music, though 
its gruesome climax was prop- 
erly loud and percussive. And 
in Regina (1985) for five 
percussionists we were given a 
sea of vaguely defined textures 
that were supposed to be 
making a joke out of Mozart's 
Queen of the Night At least 
here there was excitement in 
seeing how the performers had 
to keep their wits about them. 

Busoni himself, looking dis- 
turbingly like Elton John in 
his shades and white suit, 
played his Fogiia d'album 
(1970) on the piano using as a 
score an odd photo-montage. 
Likewise an array of enlarge- 
ments depicting his friends 
seemed to govern his direction 
from the piano of the new 
Conzcrto allaquila. Weird, 
and distinctly not wonderful.

recorded with Coleman's

are a speciality of foe annual

amplified quartet of the Amer- 
ican guitarist John Scofield

sion of Steve Swallow's “Unti- 
tled Tune” while, on a nearby

humour is suggested by its 
name, the Melody Four.

London debuts 

Darko Milojevic, a Yugoslav 
violinist is what you might 
call a competent artist. He still 
has much to learn, though, 
about the nature of a work as 
momentous as Brahms's D 
minor Violin Sonata. Here he 
slipped too coolly, for exam- 
ple. into an over-fast tempo 
for the opening Allegro and, 
while dramatic gesture was 
not entirely absent, that which 
: there was did nothing to 
convince one that the perfor- 
mance came from a deep 
understanding. His pianist, 
hana Milojevic. was similarly 
found wanting. 

The pianist Richard Shep- 
herd played with foe sort of 
confidence one wishes more 1 
debutants could muster. His 
opening gambit, the miracu- 
lous Prelude and triple Fugue 
in F sharp minor from Book 
Two of Bach's 48 Preludes and 
Fugues, at once showed him to 
be a cool and meticulous 
artist, as. in its more athletic 
way. did Haydn’s B fiat Sona- 
ta. Hob XV1:41. And. if one 
might have been lulled into 
thinking that the crisp and 
emotionally rather detached 
playing exhibited in these 
works was to be the order of 
the evening, such notions were 
dramatically dispelled by his 
playing of Tchaikovsky's 
Theme and Variations. Op 19 
No 6. and by Liszt's first 
Mephisto Waltz. This was 
dashing artistry: moreover in 
neither work did Shepherd 
allow himself an ugly sound 
while under pressure.

I Commedianti 
Charleston Manor 

Just 10 minutes down the 
railway line from the stop for 
Glyndcbournc is another 
country house, with more 
rose s and sweet peas, and 
more opera. On Saturday 
night the 15th-century tithe 
tern of Charleston Manor, 
near Polcgaie. was host to ! 
Commedianti. a six-months- 
old louring company, present- 
ing the first fruits of an 
I intensive period of study un- 
der foe Italian buffo bass 
Federico Davia. 

The skills the young profes- 
sional singers learn are 
grounded in the commcdia 
dc/Pane. : their performance 
grows out of it just as Italian 
comic opera assimilated and 
transmuted its techniques. 
And a good injection of those 
techniques, and the directorial 
eye for detail they require, are 
just what Peigolesi's La servo 
pudrona needs. Originally in- 
tended as an intermezzo in a 
larger opera, it now frequently 
finds itself elevated lo primary 
festival status. 

The guardian Ubcrto 
(Davia himself), his amorous 
young servant Scrpina (Anne 
Aldridge) and the mute 
Vcsponc (Guy Callan) have 
still not shaken off their 
commcdia delt'ane motley: it 
is through Pantalonc. Colum- 
bine and Brighella that they 
draw their breath, and the 
effect that such minutely stud- 
ied body-language has on their 
musical performance is reve- 
latory. Every gesture — and the 
feet were as eloquent as their 
hands and heads — reflected 
the deft pacing and comic 
liming of Pcrgolesi's tricky 
parlando recitative. As in the 
original performance, a string 
quartet and harpsichord con- 
tinuo accompanied, cunningly 
silhouetted behind a lace 
backdrop curtain. 

With a 30-strong orchestra 
of young professional players, 
conducted by Adalbeno Ton- 
ini. and with a stage bursting 
with geraniums and vivid 
tricolour costumes. Doni- 
zettis delightful miniature. 
Rita, was undoubtedly the 
success of the evening. Al- 
though Jess gripping as a piece 
of historical reconstruction, it 
was characterized by enough 
bold, musically-attuned busi- 
ness and stylistic Hair to auger 
well for foe troupe’s future, 
and was sung with distinction 
by Lynorc McWhirier (Rita). 
David Turner (Beppe. her 
mild second husband) and 
Bronek Pomorski (Gasparo. 
the dastardly first).

THE TIMES MONDAY JULY 7 1986 


Steel and Owen 
close to 
Polaris accord 

By Philip Webster. Chief Political Correspondent 


Mr David Steel and Dr 
David Owen are dose to an 
agreement which will allow 
differences between their par- 
ties on the future of the Polaris 
deterrent to be papered over 
in a key Alliance policy docu- 
ment to be issued later this 
month. 

Mr Steel, who today cele- 
brates 1 0 years as leader of the 
Liberal Party, and Dr Owen 
are determined that their ad- 
mitted differences over Bri- 
tain's independent nuclear 
deterrent should not lead to a 
rift in their relationship or 
damage the Alliance's chances 
in the run-up to the next 
dection. 

For several months both 
parties have been working on 
a programme of Alliance aims 
and objectives, to be entitled 
Priorities for the 1990s, and to 
be debated for the first time at 
a conference of SDP and 
Liberal parliamentary candi- 
dates in London on July 26 
and 27. 

Although it is accepted that 
the fundamental difference 
between both parlies — Dr 
Owen is broadly in favour of a 
replacement for Polaris and 
Mr Steel against - cannot be 
settled by then, the leaders are 
expected to welcome the Alli- 
ance joint commission on 
defence report, which left 
open the question of a Polaris 
successor, as a contribution to 
the debate. 

They are also expected to 
declare their readiness to 
search for a solution in the 


context of a possible British 
contribution to a European 
nudear defence force. 

That commitment will be 
backed by the announcement 
by both leaders of joint visits 
to Naio headquarters and 
other European capitals, in- 
cluding Paris and The Hague, 
to talk about defence issues. 

Mr Steel, interviewed on 
BBC radio yesterday to mark 
his anniversary, admitted that 
Dr Owen was “not the easiest 
of people to work with". 

“He never has been in in 
any post he has held, ” Mr 
Steel said. But he added that 
the two were determined to 
make their partnership work. 
“We know it is not easy but we 
work very bard at it and it has 
got great popular appeal" - 

Mr Steel said that, but for 
the formation of the SDP, the 
growth in support for the 
Liberals since he took over 
would have been a lot slower. 

He predicted that the next 
general election would be the 
last fought under the present 
voting system. Britain was 
moving inexorably towards a 
new system based on propor- 
tional representation, he said. 

Mr Steel said: “I think 
another election in which 
there is a three-way division of 
public opinion, but not a 
three-way division in the 
House of Commons, would 
actually spell the death knell 
of the present electoral 
system”.

China devalues by 16% 

From a Correspondent Peking 


[n an unexpected move, 
China has devalued its curren- 
cy, the yuan, by 16 per cent 
against the dollar and the 
pound. 

A dollar is now worth 3.7 
yuan, up from 3J yuan, and 
the pound S.2 yuan, up from 
4.9. In the last devaluation 
two years ago, the currency fell 
from 2.0 vuan to the dollar to 
2 . 8 . 

The yuan also fell 16 per

stay on m 
defiance of 
mountain 

By Tim Jones 

Sitting in front of their 
hearth, with the kettle steam- 
ing gently on the hob, the old 
couple are confused, fright- 
ened and determined. 

For Mr and Mrs David 
Morgan cannot understand 
why the local coundJ has 
decided forcibly to purchase 
their house and more them 
from the only home they have 
known. 

It is a fate which has also 
been decreed for the 11 other 
families who remain stubborn- 
ly behind as the only residents 
of the once thriving mining 
village of Troedrhiwgwair, 
near Tredegar, Gwent. 

The other 84 families left 
more than 10 years ago when 
the council received reports 
that the mountain which looms 
behind the terraced houses 
could slip and destroy them. 

Their exodns has left an 
ngty legacy, for the 12 remain- 
ing well cared-for little houses 
stand oat like oases dotted 
between bricked-op decaying 
dwellings. 

Mr Morgan, aged 79, does 
not believe the mountain will 
ever move. “I was born here 
and worked on the mountain in 
the old coal level so I know it 
better than any expert Not a 
stone has tinned or a piece of 
fencing moved in all those 
years." 

His wife, Charlotte, also 
aged 79, who was also born in 
one of the 130-year-old 
houses, said: “Neither of us 
has got much longer to live so 
why cannot they leave as 
alone? I am determined to die 
here.” 

One of the organizers of the 
campaign to prevent the evic- 
tions, Mr Brian Gardner, aged 
44 , is adamant that minutes 
exist which prove the 
Tredegar Urban Council, be- 
fore it was incorporated into 
Blaenau Gwent Borough 
Council, promised residents 
they would never be moved 
against tbeir wflL 

Mr Michael Foot, the local 
MP and former Labour leader, 
is backing the villagers. One of 
them, Mr David John, aged 
70, said: “The council has had 
poles planted in the mountain 
for 14 years to monitor any 
movement and they have not 
moved an inch.”

Beware theft 

A timely reminder that most 
burglaries lake place in daylight 
hours is made by the Central 
Office of Information who urge 
householders not to leave a 
window open if they are going 
away for the weekend. Particu- 
larly vulnerable are windows on 
the ground Door, next to drain 
pipes, and particularly at the 
back of the house. They also 
point out that it is wise' to fit 
locks to them. 


This is the last week of rich 
bird song in the country side. 
Most robins and nightingales, 
starlings and nuthatches • have 
already Slopped singing; willow 
warblers, song thrushes and 
chaffinches are Tailing silent: 
soon the only widespread sing- 
ers will be wrens and yellow- 
hammers. The trees and fields 
are full of young- birds, most of 
them now fending for them- 
selves. This is a time of abun- 
dance and ease for birds. 

Lime trees are covered with 
sweei-scemed bloom. Purple 
foosestrise grows tall ar the 
waters edge: the yellow flowers 
and glittering leaves of stiver- 
weed are common in dusty 
places. In dry 1 woodland glades, 
the pale pink flowers of century 
form a rosette on their brittle 
stalks. Scarlet pimpernel strag- 
gles along the edge of com fields: 
its flowers close when the 
weather turns cloudy and wet. 

Small copper butterflies are 
common on southern 
heath land: red admirals appear 
in gardens throughout Britain. 
In oak woods, the green lorlrix 
moth camouflages itself by rest- 
ing on the leaves: it is also 
known as the green oak-roller, 
since when they were still 
caterpillars these moths fed in 
rolled - up leaves.

FINANCE AND INDUSTRY 



Indicators 
point to a 


Mounting speculation of 
Pearson break-up bid 


From Maxwell Newton 
New York 


Economic policy making in 
the United States is close to 
paralysis, as the evidence of 
economic stagnation and ap- 
proaching recession spreads. 

' Two indicators summarize 
the developments in thinking 
dyer the past month. 

First, the 30-year 714 US 
bond has risen from $93375 

on Jane 2 to $101 on June 3 in 
New York - a rise of 83 per 
cent, which has driven the 
yield on this longest bond 
down to 7.15 per cent Mean- 
while. the yield on the 90-day 
T-Bill has fallen from 63 per 
cent to 6.Q5 per . cent 
1 Those figures reflect the the 
bond market's conviction that 
economic growth has, for all 
practical purposes, 

■ Secondly, the dollar has 
suffered a heavy loss against 
the yen, with the September 
contract falling from 175 yen 
on June 2, to 160 yen on July 
3, a (frop of &5 per cent in a 
month. With the Japanese 
elections over the prospect of a 
speculative “meltdown" of the 
dollar against the yen con- 
fronts the authorities. 

The dollar loss in the' past 
month has been indicative of a 
growing suspicion over the 
currency. The nightmare for 
die Americans -is a mass 
desertion of the dollar for'the 
yen. 

The idea of the yen moving 
to par with the dollar is no 
longer thought to be outland- 
ish, as the American economy 
struggles with depression, 
massive debt in relation to 
income and rapidly escalating 
external debt, at the rate of 
$150 billion (£97 billion) a 
year. y 

This combination of dollar 
weakness and domestic 
spreading recession has para- 
lysed Federal Reserve policy, 
shown in the rigidity of the 
Federal funds rate, while so 


Speculation was growing 
over the weekend that Quad- 
rex Securities, a smalt private 
investment banking group 
which owns the moneybroker 
RP Martin, would pul togeth- 
er a consortium bid for Pear- 
son, the merchant banking to 
publishing conglomerate. 

Quadrex, headed by Mr 
Gary Mesch, an American, is 
understood to want to break 
up Pearson into its constituent 
parts, which Mr KJesch be- 
lieves are worth more than the 
sum of the whole. The Pear- 
son empire owns hazard 
Brothers, the merchant bank, 
the Financial Times and The 
Economist papers. Penguin, 
Longman and Westminster 
publishers. Royal Doulton 
china, GoldcresL the film 
company, Yorkshire TV and 
Chateau La tour, the French 
vineyard. 

Quadrex's plan, code name 


By Alison Eadie 


Project Alphabet, envisages 
inviting five investors to com- 
mit £100 million to £125 
million to a new company, 
Pearson Acquisitions Compa- 
ny. to make a highly geared 
bid pitched at around £1.25 
billion, or 665p a share. 

If successful, Quadrex 
would then dispose of the 
parts of Pearson through asset 
sales, management buyouts 
and flotations both here and 
in the United States. 

Speculation about a break- 
up bid for Pearson has been 
rife for several months, caus- 
ing Pearson shares to rise 
steadily from under 400p in 
January to 603p on Friday. 
The Pearson board, under the 
Chairmanship of Lord Blaken- 
ham. is expected to put up a 
fierce resistance. The 
Cowdray family is thoughr to 
control 20 jo 25 per cent of the 
shares. 


Project Alphabet has target- 
ed Lazard Brothers as one of 
the first assets to be sold for a 
possible £200 million to £325 
million. Lazard Frtrcs, the 
New York investment bank, 
has first right of refusal. 

The newspaper and publish- 
ing business could be worth up 
to £700 million, according to 
Quadrex's estimates. Royal 
Doulton has been valued at 
about £275 million. Mr 
Klesch plans either to float it 


in London or New York or and unsuccessful bid earlier 
possibly to sell it to the this year by Demerger Corpo- 


London International Group 
run by another American, Mr

Mr Paul Volcker appears 
more concerned about a ran on 
the dollar than he is about the 
prospect 4»f domestic reces- 
sion. The announcement by 
Mr Beiyl Sprinted, chairman 
of the "Council of Economic 
Advisers last week that he had 
renounced monetarism and 
that be “Does not know where 
we are going" was long 
expected. 

Mr Sprinkd has now admit- 
ted that a whole range of 
advice on monetary expansion 
to the president was wrong. 

Now the Administration is 
trying to recover the ground 
lost during the last year of 
uusinfonnation, during which 
the “consensus" and the 
Council of Economic Advisers 
have erroneously advised the 
president that a strong eco- 
nomic recovery would occur in 
time Tor the crndal Senate 
elections this year. 

In the bond markets, a 
reduction of the discount rate 
to 6 per cent from 6 V 2 is built 
into the price structure. Over 
the weekend the 7% per cent 
30-year bond surged to 101 14 & 
in Tokyo. 

Far more is needed to save 
the US economy from a .dam- 
aging recession and a financial 
collapse, based on the inability 
of corporate America to ser- 
vice the huge debt structure 
that has been constructed 
since 1980. A funds rate of 5 
per cent or less is required. 

At the Treasury, Mr James 
Baker is now trying to evolve a 
worldwide currency frame- 
work similar to the European 
Monetary System, permitting- 
only limited and infrequent 
currency adjustments.

Discussions among the 
world's leading coffee produc- 
ing and importing countries 
on the possible reintroduction 
of export quotas have done 
little to boost sentiment in the 
coffee world. 

Indeed, as the members of 
the International Coffee Orga- 
nization (ICO) met in London 
last week, futures prices on the 
London Commodity Ex- 
change sank to their lowest 
levels for nine months. 

The ICO members ad- 
dressed themselves to a num- 
ber of quota-related problems 
at their week-long meeting but 
came to few conclusive 
decisions. 

ICO sources said it was 
decided that the organi- 
zation's board should recon- 
vene as soon as it became 
apparent that the average 
daily ICO price was about to 
breach the 134.55 cent per Jb 
mark at which quotas are 
triggered The average now 
stands near 147 cents. 

Quotas were suspended in 


The meeting also discussed 
changes to the way quotas are 
handled In the two-month 
transitionfty period after they 
are triggered although the 
sources said European Eco- 
nomic Community delegates 
wanted to take these proposals 
back to their governments 
before taking them further. 

The far thornier question of 
a redistribution of coffee quo- 
tas from October was also 
broached although discus- 
sions made little progress 
apparently . 

While European roasters 
and traders have criticized the 
present quota distribution sys- 
tem which, they say, reflects 
neither availability in export- 
ing countries nor the prefer- 
ences of consumers. Brazil has 
already given notice that it 
will not accept a cut in its 
present 30 per cent share of 
total quotas. 

The matter is up for further 
discussion at the ICO’s main 
annual session in September.

By Onr Industrial 
Correspondent 

The number of enterprises 
bidding for the Confederation 
of British Industry's company 
of the year title has fallen by 
half! despite strenuous efforts 
by Britain's industrial institu- 
tions to promote 1986 as 
Industry Year. 

Last year, more than 3,000 
companies competed for the 
honour, with Mr Richard 
Branson's Virgin Group 
emerging as the winner. But 
only 1.500 have applied to be 
considered for the 1986 
award. 

The title wifi go to the 
company which is considered 
to have made the most signifi- 
cant contribution to the cre- 
ation of wealth and jobs in 
Britain during Industry Year. 
Applicants must have a turn- 
over of at least £5 million a 
year. Previous winners have 
included Barratt Develop- 
ments, J. Sainsbury, Racai, S 
R Gent and Applied Comput- 
er Techniques. 

The CBI stressed today that 
it was still seeking entries from , 
British' companies with “an 
outstanding record of 
achievement”. The deadline 
for entries is July 31. 

Mr David Nickson, the CBI 
president, said: “Companies 
will be judged not only on 
their economic contribution 
but also on enterprise in the 
design, manufacture and mar- 
keting of their products or 
services." 

Out of the total, about 50 
applicants are selected for 
thorough assessment. Of 
these, six are finally investi- 
gated by officials of the Man- 
agement College, Henley. 

This year's award will be 
presented by Mr Norman 
Tebbit, chairman of the Con- 
servative Party, at a lunch in 
London in October in aid of 
the Royal Society for Mentally 
Handicapped Children and 
Adults (Mencap).

Where unwillingness of 
middle managers to accept 
change is seen as a big obstacle 
by senior management, a sur- 
prisingly high 47 per cent of 
middle managers in the same 
companies share the same 
view. 

The survey also appears to 
show that top executives have 
a greater belief in the extern of 
worker involvement that is 
carried out in their companies 
than do their middle manage- 
ment colleagues. 

Thirty nine per cent of 
senior directors thought their 
companies consulted a great 
deal with their employees 
compared with 21 per cent of 
middle managers. 

In a third of those compa- 
nies where senior managers 
said they consulted a great 
deal, ora fair amount, middle 
managers said they consulted 
only a little or nor at all. 

Managers generally fa- 
voured consultation on a wide 
range of subjects. But only 42 
per cent of middle managers 
who said it was important to 
consult with employees about 
attitudes of middle managers 
said that definite steps bad

group was capitalized at on the 
stock market. 

h is noi clear what level of 
support, if any, Mr Klesch has. 


The Financial Services Bill is to 
j receive its second reading in the 
House of Lords on Friday before 
moving on to the standing committee 
sta.ge in the Lords this month. It will 
be interesting to see what the Lords, 
with a strong representation from the 
professions, and a tendency to impose 
their personalities on the legislative 
process, make of the Bill. 

The Department of Trade and 
Industry, which has sponsored the 
Bill, is not expecting the drubbing in 
the Lords it received over the earlier 
Insolvency Bill. But its main repre- 
sentative in the Lords, Lord Lucas of 
Chilworth, lays no claim to expertise 
and is . to be bolstered on the 
Government side by the Lord Ad- 
vocate, Lord Cameron of Lochbroom. 

The highly controversial question 
of giving legal immunity to the self- 
regulatory organizations should cer- 
tainly generate an active debate. 

The Government unashamedly re- 
treated on this issue after collective 
lobbying from the SRO brigade, 
which said that it would not take up 
its position in the new self-regulatory 
regime without immunity from legal 
attack. 

Hence SROs have been given 
immunity, which means that they 
cannot be sued for damages arising 
out of the exercise of their duties in 
good faith. Lord Denning has pul his 
name down to speak on the Bill on 
Friday. Certainly the most famous 
judge in modern times. Lord Den- 
ning, both in the Lords and in his 
pivotal position as Master of the Rolls 
in the Court of Appeal, has extended 
the law of negligence to institutions 
which previously were regarded as 
largely immune from legal attack. 
Hence local authorities, doctors and 
banisters are a few that have found 
that their position in relation to the 
law was not as sacrosanct as many 
envisaged. 

Moreover, a string of Lord 
Denning’s judgments in the Court of 
Appeal consistently refused to allow 
commercial organizations to escape 
their legal responsibilities by the use 
of exclusion clauses. 

Lord Denning will be supporting 
the Bill and the immunity which it 
grants the SRO network. “I can well 
understand the nervousness of some 
of these new bodies,” he says. 

He invokes the same public policy 
argument in favour of immunity 
which underlines his extension of 
liability for negligence. “You have got 
to ask what is the best public policy for 
everyone to adopt. There are cate- 
gories of individuals wbo will be 
prevented from performing their 
proper functions from fear of action. 
Actions for negligence have gone 
beyond all bounds,” he says. 

The policy or pragmatic argument 
for immunity does not, however, 
justify extending it to prevent mem- 
bers of the public of the Aunt Agatha 


variety from suing an SRO for 
negligence. The possibility of actions 
from the public should not inhibit the 
SROs from the proper performance of 
their duties. 

If the Lords want to impress their 
personality on this Bill, then a move 
to reduce the ambit of immunity to al- 
low actions by individuals against 
negligent SROs provides them with an 
ideal and worthy opportunity. 


Coat tales 


The name of Windsmoor is long- 
established and well known at least to 
women aged 30 plus. It is said that 
everyone's grandmother had a 
Windsmoor coat. However, there is 
plenty in the offer for sale to attract - 
the men too, of whatever age. 

Chase Manhattan, incorporating 
Simon & Coates, is offering the 6.6 
million shares at 120p to give a 
historic p/e ratio of just under 14 on 
an actual taxed basis, and 12‘/2 on a 35 
per cent tax charge. By retailing 
standards the p/e is modest. 

Windsmoor, whose labels include 
Windsmoor and Planet for those in 
the 25 to 45 age group, is not a typical 
retailer. It sells through concessions in 
more than 500 department stores, so it 
has no property exposure and no rent 
to pay. It pays a percentage of the 
business done to the stores. It. can also 
put the range of clothes it wants into 
the stores without having to rely on a 
store buyer to place forward orders.lt 
is also not a manufacturer but 
contracts out its designs to manufac- 
turers around the world. 

The group's trading record of the 
past five years has been one of steady 
growth with taxable profits rising 
from £388,000 in 1 982 to £2.8 million 
in the year ending January 31. 
Somewhat surprisingly for a business 
with a 53 year record, there is no 
profits forecast. With five months 
trading under its belt, the company 
must have an idea how profits for the 
year will shape up. Even though the 
more important autumn/winter range 
is going into the shops only now, 
wholesale forward orders, admittedly 
a small part ofthe business in relation 
to concessions, are 25 per cent ahead. 

There is, however, a prospective 
dividend yield of 4.3 per cenL Future 
growth is expected to come from 
further concessions in Britain. Al- 
though by the end of this year there 
will be extensive national coverage 
with 551 concessions, there is still 
scope for more in smaller towns. The 
company also hopes to capitalize on . 
its brand name abroad, especially in . 
Europe where sales last year were 3 
per cent of the total. 

The pricing of the offer should 
allow for a premium when dealings 
begin on July 1 7. The founding Green 
family will retain 70 per cent of the 
shares.

Traded options turnover 
‘to rise by up to 1 ,000%’ 


Turnover on ihe London. 
Traded Options market has 
reached consistently high lev- 
els this > ear. reaching its peak 
on March 12 when 33.681 
contracts were traded. Store- 
o> er. according to those clos- 
est to the market, the best is 
>et to come. Conservative 
estimates say turnover will 
increase at least 600 per cent 
over the next 12 months 
straddling big bang, while 
others see a 1.000 per cent 
increase as more lifceK . 

This ros\ outlook contrasts 
markedly with the rather 
difficult upbringing that the 
market has had since its birth 
in April 1978. almost five 
years to the day after the 
Chicago Board Options Ex- 
change (CBOE) emerged and 
a few weeks after the Amster- 
dam-based European Op- 
tions Exchange (EOE) 
opened for business. 

The LTO market has been 
plagued by a number of 
obstacles, such as the fiscal 
treatment of options as wast- 
ing assets and all the 
anomolous capital gains tax 
consequences this produced, 
as well as the taxation of 
pension funds on options 
gains. 

Of course, there has been, 
and indeed still persists, con- 
siderable ignorance about the 
function of the market and 
the way in which options 
work. A large part of the 
blame for this must be attrib- 
uted tothe Stock Exchange. 

The CBOE ran a planned 
educational programme 
which started from two years 
before the market opened and 
was supported by media ad- 
vertising and clear explana- 
tory literature. The EOE 
according to one market 
source, "went about the 
whole business of introduc- 
ing traded options far more 
actively and professionally ' 
than the Stock Exchange 
did". 

The EOE is an independent 
organization. The LTO. how- 
ever. coming under the Stock 
Exchange’s wing, was regard- 
ed by the Stock Exchange

The nature of the market as 
an open ouicn one at least 
assures it a permanent place 
on the Stock Exchange floor 
where it should become the 
dominant presence, operat- 
ing alongside market makers 
trading gamma and delta 
stocks. 

At the moment, there are at 
least three market makers for 
each one of the 40 nock 
options quoted on the LTO 
market. Smith New Court 
has the largest market share, 
but then it has been a 
consistent supporter of the 
market and trades all the 


stocks. The vast majority of 


Council as very much periph- 
eral and low priority. 

It is only in the past few 
years that the Stock Exchange 
has substantially increased 
financial support for the de- 
velopment of the market, as 
well as upgrading the Stock 
Exchange Options Comiuee 
to a full committee from 
being a mere sub-committee 
of the markets committee. 

It now runs a detailed 
education programme, incor- 
porating evening briefings at 
advanced and introductory 
levels, in-house seminars, 
one and two-day training 
courses, etc. 

Apart from making a slow . 
start in spreading the gospel 
about the traded option, the 
Stock Exchange has also had 
a few teething problems with 
the computerized matched 
bargains system which it 
introduced in March. Stock 
Exchange sources say the 
exchange has been preoccu- 
pied with the development of 
SEAQ. the Stock Exchange 
Automated Quotations sys- 
tem. so that computerization 
for the LTO market was 
given low priority. 

The March failure was a 
case of an unlucky Friday the 
14th for the Stock Exchange, 
as the market failed to open 
at all on this day. The 


problem was precipitated by 
hardware faults in the com- 
puterized matched bargains 
system which had been intro- 
duced the previous day. The 
exchange says the problems 
with option computerized 
sy stems have been sorted out. 

One area where the ex- 
change is suffering at the 
moment is the luring away of 
some of its best options staff, 
such as the board inspectors, 
by firms anxious to bolster 
their traded options teams. 

There is a shortage of 
trained talent in the traded 
options market at the mo- 
ment and the 1 1 market 
makers and the broking firms 
that lake options seriously 
(almost all do now) are 
prepared to pay high sums to 
snap up what little there is. 

On the market-making 
side, the nature of the market 
as an open outcry market 
makes a traded option mar- 
ket maker a much more 
specialist animal than his or 
her counterparts in straight- 
forward equities. 

"It is far more competitive, 
so if you are not up to it then 
you will not survive." one 
experienced options market 
maker said. "In equities, you 
have more time as you are 
dealing on a one-to-one basis. 
In options, you have to make 


business, in terms of volume 
at least is institutional, with 
estimates ranging from 75 per 
cent upwards. In terms of 
bargains struck, however, the 
mix between institutions and 
private diems is roughly 
equal. 

The consensus of opinion 
is lhai big bang is going to 
provide a considerable ex- 
pansion to traded option 
business. 

The idea is that the market 
makers will use traded op- 
tions as a means of hedging 
their books. The old jobbing 
firms, strongly nurtured on 
risk, will have to use the 
traded option to operate a 
controlled-risk book, thereby 
satisfying their new. more 
risk-averse masters. 

Moreover, many of the 
new entrants to the business 
of market making in UK 
equities, particularly those 
from overseas, are focusing in 
the short term on winning 
market share rather than 
profitability. 

Traded options will prove 
useful as a means of limiting 
the downside of such a 
potentially disastrous strate- 
gy. The Stock Exchange's 
policy of introducing a new 
stock option, generally in a 
front-line stock, at the rate of 
one a month, will also broad- 
en die range of hedging 
possibilities available in the 
post-big bang era.

f USM REVIEW) 


Borland float proves 
exception to the rule 

. . . / -nnj ««rl ihi* mmnanv has a 


It is proving to be an active 
summer on the Unlisted Seai- 
rities Market. At the point 
when it was universally _ ac- 
knowledged that L’nued 
States companies were diffi- 
cult io float on the USM. an 
exception to the rule has 
arisen. Scarred by the flop* of 
Mrs Fields in May. Schrodos 
latest issue from the L S. 
Borland International, was 
cautiously priced and has 
started dealings at an 1 Ip 
premium. 

The company is one of the 
largest independent publishers 
of microcomputer software in 
the world with a wide range of 
applications from educational 
to 01 


lusiness use. It is therefore 
cushioned from changes in 
fashion in any one of its 
products. 

Continuing investment in 
product development has al- 
lowed the company to stay at 
the forefront of software tech- 
nology and to produce mar- 
ket-orientated new products 
on a regular baas. 

Pretax profits are forecast to 
rise from $8.7 million (£5.6 
million ) in 1 986 to S 1 7.5 
million in 1988 and the price 
earnings ratio falls from 16 
times in historic 1986 to 12 
times in 1 987 and 8.9 times in 
1988. The growth potential is 
not fully reflected in this 
rating. 

Elsewhere, the new issue 
market is patchy. Spade Plan- 
ning Services, which was ex- 
pensively priced as a people's 


business at 16 times, has none 
the less received a good recep- 
tion. but Chelsea Man. where 
the sponsors were rather am- 
bitious to pitch a rag trade 
stock on 20 times earnings 
despite a good record, has 
been left with the underwrit- 
er. Discrimination and selee- 
tivin are the order of the day. 

If ‘the new issue market is 
sensitive, the established 
USM market is enjoying a 
happy phase. The jobbers 
report a good level of turnover 
and renewed interest on the 
pan of investors for smaller 
companies ’which are now 
perceived to offer good value 
against the market. Sentiment 
is helped by a stream of good 
results and* buoyant takeover 
activity. 

One area of the market 
which remains flat is the 
British independent oil sector 
where there are a number of 
USM stocks which have been 
poor investments as ihe price 
of oil has fallen and. which 
remain highly speculative as 
the companies are short of 
cash and working capitaL 

There have been a number 
of takeovers and acquisitions 
in the sector as rationalization 
runs it course in this period of 
adversity. One of the most 
likely candidates on the USM 
for takeover is North Sea and 
General which originally came 
to the market as Dawsea in 
1980. 

The company’s assets are 
wholly concentrated in Britain

The period under review saw the completion of our 
three-year strategy to concentrate production on four 
sites instead of seven previously. Concurrent with this 
rationalisation was the continuing modernisation of the 
two remarnfng foundries and two efectricaf equipment 
factories. 


Whilst we made progress in this period, with group 
trading profit up marginally to £615.000 from £608^000, 
higher interest charges resulted in a 6% drop in pre-tax 
profits. Extraordinary items relating to closures and 
relocation costs totalled £196,000. The dividend for the 
year remains unchanged. 

The electrical companies made some progress, 
whilstthefoundries hade (ess than satisfactory year. 
There are now many optimistic forecasts for the economy, 
but we have yet to see the promised 
improvement. The reorganisation of our 
activities will improve the long-term 
shape of our balance sheet and its asset 
cover. We look forward to improving our 
eamings for shareholders in 1686-87.

Channel tunnel 
‘small benefit 9 


The Channel tunnel, al- 
ready suffering from Parlia- 
mentary delays, received 
another jolt today with the 
results ofa poll indicating that 
few directors expea their 
companies to benefit from the 
project. 

A survey of 200 members of 
the Institute of Directors 
shows that 53 per cent expea 
no benefit at all. 12 per cent 
said not significantly. 20 per 
cent said there might be an 
indirect benefit and only J4 
per cent were looking forward 
to a direa benefit. 

The IoD said it was sur- 
prised by the answers.

“t? nervously also erowine stmnelv in m« nc higher inter- 


au« loosing oack nervously 
over their shoulders for the 
danger signs to appear 

Now. if anything, there is a 

feelmg that it has been too 
easy. . 

The gilt market, ’in com- 
mon with bonds throughout 
the world, is being subjected 
to a number of contradictory 
forces and, as might be 
expected, this is creating a 
certain amount of turbulence. 
Gilts hit their peak in -April, 
and since then have been 
struggling. Not surprisingly, 
there is concern that the trend 
of interest rates may have 
turned. 

Economic analysis fro- 
quently becomes obscured by 
disputes over definitions. In 
no area is this more true than 
when it comes to money.' In 
Britain the monetary authori- 
ties have further confused the 
issue by rejecting the conven- 
tional monetary aggregates - 
and adopting Mo as their 
preferred definition. 

The problem is that Mo is 
not a . form of money as 
generally defined; it is not a 
store of purchasing power nor 
a medium of exchange. Mo is 
the monetary base, and refer- 
ences to. It as ‘'money” serve 
only to confuse the issue. 

There are good theoretical 
and practical reasons for 


also growing strongly. • 

. While the explosive growth 
is unsettling the markets, it is 
unlikely that the Bank of 
England, or the Federal Re- 
serve, will wish to react to it • 
at this point. The real targets 
of policy are actual inflation, 
the state of the economy and 
the exchange rate. Further 
down the road the present 
monetary excesses may have 
the effect of pushing interest 
rates much higher, but not 
now. 

Inflation is a definite plus 
for interest rates. Consumer 
price inflation has fallen to 
2-8 per cent in Britain and 
even lower in many other 
countries. The drop in oil 
prices has' played a major role 
■n foerecent deadline, and in 
accelerating the fell in expec- 
tations of inflation. 

Opec had taken on the role 
of the last bulwark against 
disinflation. Now it has been 
smashed. Thai has had a 
favourable affect oo

Interest rates have already 
fallen in response u> this 
improved environment But 
because inflation and infla- 
tionary expectations have 
also fallen them has not been 
a great effect on real interest 
rates. .

iq make that distinction 
clear. But that only leads to a 
more serious problem. 

Justification for targeting 
the monetary base is not that 
there is any direct magical 
relationship with inflation, 
but rather that it is an 
efficient way to achieve con- 
trol over the supply of mon- 
ey. For that to be the care the 
monetary base needs to be 
closely and reliably linked to 
the money supply. But clearly 
it is not.

in effect, means higher inter- 
est rates. 

In the near-term the pres- 
sures are likely to be in the 
other direction, which affords 
- the opportunity to cut inter- 
est rates. 

It is- also reasonable to 
expect a return to a more 
positive yield curve as short 
rates decline faster than bond 
yields. 

The medium-term outlook 
is still clouded by a number of 
conflicting forces. Lower oil 
prices, lower inflation and 
lower interest rates are all 
positive for the economy. 
Real interest rates, however, 
are still high and the oil price 
drop, while ultimately ex- 
tremely positive, has an ini- 
tial negative economic J- 
curve effect. 

The economic J-corve is 
just like its counterpart on the 
balance of payments, in that 
it describes a perverse initial 
reaction to a positive change. 
In this case the sectors nega- 
tively affected, such as the oil 
producers and oil service 
companies, react more quick- 
ly than the beneficiaries of 
lower prices. 

The oil price decline- has 
actually set back the emerging 
recovery in world trade. This 
will now be slower in making 
an appearance, but will turn 
out to be more sustainable. 

When the recovery gets 
underway loan growth will 
pick up. putting pressure on 
available liquidity. At this 
point interest rates will begin 
to rise. Fbr the moment there 
is a lull which leaves foe 
improvement in inflation as 
foe dominant force. Howev- 
er, signs of economic recov- 
ery will reverse that situation. 

Leadership will be taken by 
the US bond market, and that 
is foe country to look to for 
the first, signs of economic 
strength. From an economic 
point of view conditions 
should stay favourable much 
longer for the gilt market 
However, what may speed up 
the reaction will be concerns, 
.no matter how unfounded, 
about the exchange rate. 

Conditions remain posi- 
tive fbr the time being despite 
foe correction since foe April 
highs, and the first cautionary 
flag will be run up by signs of 
a pick-up in the US economy. 

The’ longer-term environ- 
ment will also continue to 
favour gilts. In between there 
is likely to be a correction, 
but from lower levels than 
currently exist.

The European Court of 
Human Rights will tomorrow 
give its judgment on foe £600 
million plus claims from 
GEC. Vickers, Yarrow and the 
beleaguered Vosper. 

The four companies, with 
Brooke Marine and Sir Wil- 
liam Lilhgow, have argued 
that this is the extra amount 
they should have received 
when their shipyards and 
aerospace assets were nation- 
alized in 1977. 

The case is acutely, embar- 
rassing for the Government, 
which as the Opposition party 
of the day rounaly condemned 
foe Labour Goversmem's na- 
tionalization terms as "grossly 
inadequate”. Once it came to 
power, however, it changed its 
tune, defending those same 
terms with zeal before the 
European Court- 

The Government's ability 
to fond tax cuts ahead of foe 
genera] election is already 
under pressure after its dori- 
sion to postpone the privatiza- , 
lion of the water authorities 
and of Royal Ordnance. An 
unscheduled bill for £600 
million would only serve to 
worsen its problems. 

This outcome, however, is 
unlikely as the European 
Court is widely expected to 
find in the Government’s 


fevour. Even Vickers, which 
has the biggest claim, admits 
foe odds are against it. 

Sir David Plastow, the chief 
executive, has gone out of his 
way to discourage talk of a 
windfall and, as a result, 
Vickers' shares have risen by 
only 18p to 478p since June 
26. when Vickers learned that 
foe judgment would be given 
on July 8, more than a year 
after the last hearings * in 
SnasbouTg- 

The European Court ruling, 
due at 7. 1 5 am on Tuesday, is 
expected to deal only with 
matters of principle. If it finds 
in the claimants' favour there 
would be further wrangling- 
about the amount of money 
involved. The claimants 
might have to negotiate with 
foe Government or go to 
arbitration. 

Vickers is claiming an extra 
£280 million. If successful, foe 
case could theoretically boost 
the company's value from 
£445 million to £725 million. 

The claim is made up of 
about £250 million for British 
Aircraft Corporation, which 
was jointly owned with GEC 
and went into British Aero- 
space. plus about £30 million 
for shipbuilding assets. 

Ironically, many of the ship- 
yards involved in the case 



Sir David Phstow 

have recently been sold by 
British Shipbuilders as part of 
the Government's privatiza- 
tion programme, and foe sale 
prices provide useful markers 
for the current value of those 
businesses. The Vickers yard, 
for example, was recently sold 
alongside Cammell Laird for 
about £60 million. 

For Vosper foe case is 
literally a matter of life and 
death, as the company is in 
receivership. It is claiming £70 
million, more than enough to 
pay off its creditors and leave 
something for foe beleaguered 
shareholders. 

The claim compares with 
foe £5.3 million that Vosper 
received when its warship 
yard, Vosper Thomey croft, 
was nationalized in 1977 and 


foe £18.5 million paid by the 
management when it bought 
foe company last year. 

For GEC. which is claiming 
£250 million, success would 
simply mean a further in- 
crease in its legendary cash 
pile. Yarrow, now part ; of 
CAP, foe computer software 
company, has already said it 
would distribute to sharehold- 
ers any extra compensation 
received as a result of foe 
judgment. 

Yarrow is claiming £30 
million in addition to the £6 
million it received originally, 
which compares with the £34 
million that GEC paid for foe 
Yarrow yard in March, 1985. 

Other interested parlies in- 
clude Hawker Siddeley, which 
says it will “look carefully" at 
foe ruling, although at the 
time Hawker Siddeley Avia- 
tion. its subsidiary, was na- 
tionalized. it accepted “under 
protest” foe terms it was 
offered. 

The case could also have 
important implications for foe 
Labour Party in its plans to 
renationalize British Telecom 
and other companies. For its 
supporters, as for the punters 
who hope to make a killing 
from dealing in Vickers' 
shares, it will be an early start 
on Tuesday.

Commission has duty to 
protect secrets 


AKZO Cbemie BV and 
AiCZO Cheraie UK Ltd v 
Commission. Engineering and 
Chemical Supplies (Epsom £ 
Gloucester) Ltd interrening . 
Case 53/85 

Before Judge U- Everting. Presj- 
dem of the Fifth Chamber, and 
Judges R- Joliet, O. Due. Y. 
Galmot and C N. Kakouris 
Advocate General C. O. Lena 
(Opinion given January 22, 
1986) 

[Judgment given June 24] 

To its condnct of investiga- 
tions into alleged infringements 
of Community competition law 
the Commission was required to 
have a regard to the legitimate 
interest of undertakings that 
their business secrets should not 
be disclosed. 

The applicants were part of 
the AKZO group which was the 
Community's largest supplier of 
benzoyl peroxide, a chemical 
product used both for the manu- 
facture of plastics and as a 
whitening agent for flour. Thai 
product was also produced by 
the intervener (ECS), a small 
Gloucestershire company. 

AKZO was alleged to have 
threatened to exclude ECS from 
the market for flour additives, 
by means of a policy of 
aborrnalJy low prices, if the 
latter were to extend its activ- 
ities to the market for organic 
peroxides for the plastics 
industry. 

ECS claimed that. AKZO had 
carried out that threat and on 
June 15, 1982 laid a complaint 
of infringement of article 86 of 
the EEC Treaty before the 
Commission. 

As a result of that complaint, 
in December 1 982, Commission 
officials carried out investiga- 
tions at the applicants' offices in 
the Netherlands and in the UK 
pursuant to article 14(3) of 
Regulation No 17, First Regula- 
tion implementing articles 85 
and 86 of the Treaty IOJ English ' 
Special Edition, 1959-1962, 
p87 i During the course of those 
investigations various docu- 
ments belonging to AKZO were 
obtained. 

On October !0, 1983 ECS 
brought a claim for damages 
against AKZO in the High 
Court on the basis of the 
.practices described above. The 
High Court decided to stay the 
proceedings pending the 
Commission's derision. 

In a statement of objections of 
September X J 984 the Commis- 
sion complained that AKZO 
had infringed article 86 of the 
Treaty by threatening ECS that 
it would sell benzoyl peroxide to 
ECS's customers at abnormally 
low and discriminatory prices 
and by carrying out that threat. 
That statement was accompa- 
nied by 127 annexes. 

A copy of the statement of 
objections with a list of the 
annexes was sent to ECS. The 
covering letter specified that 
ECS might seek access to those 
annexes if it thought it necessary 
in order to present its 
observations. 

AKZO made known its views 
on the Commission's com- 
plaints in statements of October 
22 and November 16. 1984. 
Without informing AKZO the 
Commission* supplied those 
statements to ECS. 

By a fetter of November 19, 
1984, ECS asked to have access 
to the annexes to the statement 
of objections and by a letter of 
November 29 the Commission 
informed AKZO of that request. 

It emphasized that it would 
not disclose documents which 
contained business secrets, with 
the exception of those which 
constituted proof of the 
infringement of article 86 which 
had been committed. 

The letter gave AKZO ten 
days to express its views on 
ECS's request and h also ap- 


peared indirectly from that let- 
ter that ECS had had access to 
AKZO's statements. 

AKZO gave its reaction to the 
Commission by a letter of 
December 7 in which it first 
stressed that it was premature, 
at that stage of the proceedings, 
to refer to direct proof Of an 
infringement of article 86 . It 
also expressed surprise that the 
Commission had provided its 
statements to ECS. 

AKZO proposed to draw op 
summaries of the annexes or to 
make them available while 
obscuring certain confidential 
parts and it provided a list of 
documents which were to be 
regarded as confidential in any 
event. 

On December 14, 1984 some 
of the annexes were supplied to 
ECS. a fact of which the 
Commission informed AKZO 
only by a letter of December 18. 

In that letter the Commission 
emphasized that it was for it to 
decide upon the confidential 
nature of the documents. It 
stated that it had taken AKZO's 
list into account except in 
certain instances of which it 
provided a brief explanation. 

AKZO applied to the Court 
for an annulment of the 
Commission's decision to pro- 
vide ECS with certain confiden- 
tial documents. The application 
also sought an order for the 
return of the documents 
transmitted to ECS, 

In its judgment the Court of 
Justice of the European 
Communities held as follows: 
Admissibility 

The Commission and the 
intervener claimed that the 
application was inadmissible. 
On the one hand, notification of 
the documents to ECS was a 
simple practical step which did 
not afiect the applicant's legal 
situation -and which could not 
therefore give rise to a claim for 
damages on the basis of article 
21 5 of the Treaty. 

On the other hand, they 
argued, the act in question was 
intended to enable the Commis- 
sion better to investigate the 
case and was therefore only of a 
preparatory nature. 

The act in dispute was the 
Commission's decision to re- 
gard the documents at issue as 
not being covered by the guar- 
antee of confidentiality pro- 
vided by Community law. 

That act was definitive and 
was independent of any decision 
which nlight be taken on the 
existence of an infringement of 
article 86 of the Treaty. The 
possibility for the undertaking 
of bringing an action against the 
final decision finding an 
infringement of the rules of 
competition was not of such a 
nature as to provide sufficient 
protection for its rights in that 
regards. 

On the one hand the admin- 
istrative procedure might not 
result in a derision finding that 
there had been an infringemeu. 
On the other hand, any action 
which might be brought against 
such a decision could not enable 
the undertaking to prevent the 
irreversible effects which might 
arise from an improper disclo- 
sure of certain of Its documents. 

The company's interest in 
challenging the disputed de- 
cision might not be denied on 
the ground that, in this case, the 
decision had already been im- 
plemented when the action was 
brought. The annulment of such 
ar decision was itself capable of 
having legal consequences, in 
particular by preventing any 
repetition of such behaviour by 
the Commission and by making 
the use by ECS of improperly 
disclosed documents unlawful. 

It followed that the 
applicant's claim for annulment 
of the disputed decision was 
admissible, its claim for return 


of the documents was however 
inadmissible. 

Substance 

Article 214 of the EEC Treaty 
required officials and other 
servants of the Community not 
to disclose information of the 
type covered by the obligation 
of professional secrecy. Article 
20 of Regulation No 17 gave 
effect to that provision in the 
context of the rules applicable to 
undertakings. 

The obligation of professional 
secrecy set out in article 20 ( 2 ) 
was qualified in respect of those 
upon whom article 19(2) con- 
ferred the right to be heard, in 
particular the complainant third 




Commission might pro- 
vide the latter with certain 
information covered by the 
obligation of professional se- 
crecy, to the extent io which 
such disclosure was necessary to 
the smooth conduct of the 
investigation. 

However, that possibility did 
not apply to every type of 
document covered by pro- 
fessional secrecy. Articles 19(3) 
and 21 each imposed upon the 
Commission the requirement to 
have regard to. the legitimate 
interest of undertakings in the 
protection of their business 
secrets. 

Special protection was 
thereby afforded to business 
secrets. It followed that in no 
circumstances might documents 
containing business secrets be 
disclosed to third-party 
complainants. 

Any other response might 
lead to the unacceptable result 
that an undertaking might be 
induced to complain to the 
Commission for the sole pur- 
pose of obtaining access to a 
competitor’s business secrets. 

It was clearly for the Commis- 
sion to assess whether or not a 
given document contained busi- 
ness secrets. After giving the 
undertaking the opportunity to 
present its views, it was bound 
to take a properly reasoned 
decision which was to be noti- 
fied to tbe undertaking 
concerned. 

Having regard to the ex- 
tremely serious damage which 
might be caused by the im- 
proper disclosure of documents 
io a competitor, the Commis- 
sion. before implementing its 
decision, was bound to give the 
undertaking the chance to bring 
the matter before the Court of 
Justice. 

In the present case the 
Commission had given the 
undertaking the opportunity of 
making its views known and 
had adopted a properly rea- 
soned decision on the confiden- 
tial nature of the documents at 
issue and on the possibility of 
disclosing them. 

However, at the same time 
and by an act which was 
indissociable therefrom, the 
Commission decided to disclose 
the documents to the third party 
complainant, even before 
notifying its views to the under- 
taking concerned. 

It thereby made it impossible 
for the latter to make use of the 
combined provisions of articles 
173 and 185 of the EEC Treaty 
in order to prevent the im- 
plementation of the disputed 
decision. 

In those circumstances the 
Commission's decision, notified 
10 the applicant by the letter of 
December 18, 1984 had to be 
annulled without it being nec- 
essary to establish whether the 
documents disclosed did, in 
foci, contain business secrets. 

On those grounds, the Court 
(fifth Chamber) hel± 

1 The decision notified to the 
applicant by letter of December 
18, 1984 was annulled. 

2 The remaining claims were 
dismissed. 

3 The Commission was ordered 
to pay the costs. 


Public service employment

Lawrie-Blmn v Land Baden- 

Wurttemberg 

Case 66/85 

Before Lord Mackenzie Stuart, 
President and Judges T. 
Koopraans. U. Everting, K. 
Bah I man n, G. Boko, O. Due 
and F. Schockweilef 
Advocate General C. O. Lenz 
(Opinion given April 29) 
[Judgment given July 3] 

A trainee teacher engaged in 
teaching practice was to be 
regarded as a worker for the 
purposes of article 48 of tbe EEC 
Treaty; however such practice 
did not amouirf to employment 
m the public service, admission 
to which might be reserved to 
nationals of the member state 
concerned. 

In spring 1979, Mrs Deborah 
Lawric-BIum, a British national, 
successfully took the first state 
examination for appointment as 
a secondary school teacher at 
the University of Freiburg in 
Germany. 

In August 1979, she applied to 
the Oberschulamt (Higher 
School Authority), Stuttgart, to 
be accepted as a trainee second- 
ary school teacher. 

The training period of two 
years led to the second state 
examination and included 
teaching practice during which 
the trainee was required to give 
up to 1 ! hours of classes per 
week, at first under supervision 
and later independently. 

■ Such a trainee bad the status 
of a temporary civil servant and 
only persons who satisfied the 
requirements for appointment 
as civil servants might be flo- 
wed as trainee teachers. One 
of those requirements was pos- 
session of German nationality 
within the meaning of articte 
1 16 of the Constitution. 

By a decision of December 1 3, 
1979, the Oberschulamt refused 
Mrs Lawrie-Blum’s application 
on the ground that she was not a 
German national. She therefore 
brought an action for th e annul- 
ment of that decision as bring 
contrary to article 48 of the EEC 
Treaty. 

The Verwaltungsgerieht 
(Administrative Court), Frei- 
burg, dismissed that action on 
the ground that the rules at issue 
were not contrary to ariicte48 of 
the EEC Treats' because employ- 
ment in the State school system, 
fell under the exemption for 
employment in the public ser- 


vice in accordance with article 
48(4) of the EEC Treaty. 

The Verwaltungsgerichtshof 
(Higher Administrative Court), 
Baden-Wurttemberg dismissed 
ber appeal against that decision 
and <m further appeal the 
Bundcs verwaltungsgerieht 
(Federal Administrative Court) 
referred the matter to the Court 
of Justice of the European 
Communities for a preliminary 
ruling. 

In its- judgment the European 
Court of Justice held as follows: 

'By its question the national 
court asked, in substance, 
whether a trainee teacher carry- 
ing out leaching practice with 
the status of a civil servant was 
to be regarded as a worker 
within the meaning of article 48 
of the Treaty and if so whether 
such teaching practice was to be 
regarded as employment in the 
public service within the mean- 
ing of article 48(4), admission to 
which might be refused to 
nationals of other member 
states. 

Definition of “worker * 1 • 

The concept of a “worker’' 
had a Community meaning and. 
since it defined the field of 
application of one of the fun- 
damental freedoms guaranteed 
by the Treaty it was to be 
broadly interpreted. The con- 
cept was to be defined according 
to objective criteria relating to 
the rights and duties of the 
persons concerned. 

‘Hie essential characteristic of 
the employment relationship 
was that, over a certain time, a 
person provided services For 
another, under the instructions 
of the latter and for which he 
received remuneration. All of 
those conditions were met in the 
present case. 

The feet that teaching practice 
might be regarded, like periods 
of apprenticeship in other pro- 
fessions, as practical prepara- 
tion connected with the actual 
exercise of the profession did 
not preclude the application of 
article 48( 1). if it was carried out 
as a paid activity. 

Nor could it be objected that 
the services provided in the 
context of teaching did not fall 
within tiw scope of the Treaty as 
not being economic in nature. 
The sole requirement for the 
application of article 48 was that 
the activity amounted to a 
provision of work and was 
remunerated. 


Employment in public service 

It was necessary to recall that 
since article 48(4) was a deroga- 
tion from the fundamental rule 
of the free movement of 
Community workers it was to be 
interpreted in such a way as to 
limit its scope to what was 
strictly necessary in order _ to 
safeguard the interests which 
that provision allowed member 
suites to protecu 

Access to certain jobs cou/cf 
not be restricted in a particular 
member state because the per- 
sons who accepted such jobs 
were given the status of civil 
servants. 

If the application of article 
48<4) were to depend on the 
nature of Ihe legal relationship 
between the worker and tbe 
administration, member states 
would be able to determine, at 
their whim, which jobs were to 
be covered by that exception. 

Johs in the public service, for 
the purposes of article 48(4). and 
which were thereby removed 
from the ambit of paragraphs l 
to 3 of that article, were those 
which involved direct or in- 
direct participation in the ex- 
ercise of powers conferred by 
public law and duties designed 
to safeguard the general interests 
of the state or other public 
authorities. 

Such posts presumexl on the 
pan of those occupying them 
the existence of a special 
relationship of allegiance to the 
state and reciprocity of rights 
and duties which formed the 
foundation of the bond of 
nationality. 

On those grounds, the Euro- 
pean Court of Justice ruled: 

] A trainee teacher who, under 
the instructions and supervision 
of the public education authori- 
ties. was engaged in a period of 
teaching practice in preparation 
for the teaching profession, 
during which he provided ser- 
vices by giving courses and 
received remuneration, was to 
be regarded as a worker within 
the meaning of artide 48(1) of 
the EEC Treaty irrespective of 
the legal nature of the employ- 
ment relationship. 

2 Teaching practice in prepara- 
tion for foe teaching profession 
might not be regarded as 
employment in the public ser- 
vice within the meaning of 
artide 48(4) admission to which 
might be refiised to nationals of 
other member states.

RACING: DANCING BRAVE’S CONNECTIONS THROW DOWN KING GEORGE GAUNTLET TO SHAHRASTANI CAMP 


Top colts head for Ascot showdown ^ p uts 

Eddery 

on road to 
treble 


By Dick Hinder 


Dancing Brave's over- 
whelming victory in 
Saturday's Coral-Eclipse 
Stakes at Sandown Park mere- 
ly whetted the appetite Tor that 
mouth-watering rematch with 
his Epsom conqueror. 
Shahrastani. in the King 
George VI and Queen Eliza- 
beth Diamond Stakes on July 
26. 

Ascot will provide the per- 
fect stage for another major 
confrontation between these 
two mighty three-year-old 
colts, and the culmination to 
one of. the most highly- 
charged Derby debates in 
classic history. 

Bookmakers' reaction to the 
Ascot showdown was mixed. 
.As a match. Corals offered 4-5 
Shahrastani to beat evens 
Dancing Brave. Ladbrokes 
were more emphatic, quoting 
4-7 Shah ra5tani. 1 1-8 Dancing 
Brave while Hills offered 1 j- 
10 against either of the pair 
winning the event, without 
even pncing Petoski and other 
participants. 

What a sparkling occasion it 
would be if the French could 
be persuaded to bring over 
their classic- gem. Bering, to 
provide the perfect European 
championship. 

Khaled Abdulla, Dancing 
Brave's most sporting and 
competitive owner, clearly rel- 
ishes the chance of revenge, 
and while he was greeting his 
Lyphard colt in the winner's 
enclosure, his trainer. Guy 
Harwood, threw down the 
gauntlet, declaring: “The King 
George has always been the 
plan and I'll be sutprised if it is 
altered" 

Grevilie Starkey gave one 
salute and a touch of his cap in 
response to a warming ova- 
tion from the crowds but. on 
dismounting, remained tight- 
lipped to the press and hurried 
away to the weighing room 
without pausing for breath. 

Our senior jockey must 
have been a relieved man for 
he rode a copy-book race on 
the Eclipse winner. There was 
one anxious moment two 
furlongs from home when 
Triptych, taking over the run- 
ning from Bedtime, cut off the 
intended path of Dancing 
Brave, but Starkey bided his 
time, switched the Pulborough 



Eckley can strike 
again swiftly 
with Mrs Sauga 


Victory salute: Grevilie Starkey raises his whip hand in triumph as Dancing Brave powers home in the Eclipse Stakes 


colt around the French filly 
and once he had time to 
lengthen his stride. Dancing 
Brave galloped clear for an 
emphatic four-length victory . 

Gearly noticeable, howev- 
er. was Dancing Brave's lack 
of immediate acceleration. 
Just as in the Derby, he hung 
fire before Starkey was able to 
place him in overdrive, but 
once in frill cry what a 
marvellous spectacle he is. 

This Achilles’ heel was ad- 
mitted by Harwood, who said: 
“He always wants a while to 
quicken up and that is why I 
have never regarded him as a 
natural miler. He does not go 
instantly." Then, tongue-in- 
cheek. the trainer said “I still 
think he’s a pretty good colL" 

Harwood had been con- 
cerned about the overnight 
rain which left the Sandown 


ground patchy and stated 
that good fast ground would 
be the ideal requirement for 
Dancing Brave at' Ascot. 

The 2,000 Guineas winner, 
with a value of S20m. has 
already been syndicated as a 
stallion to stand at the 
Dalham Hall Stud, Newmar- 
ket. His owner has retained 12 
shares. Sheikh Mohammed 
and his brothers a further 12, 
and 16 have been sold at 
£350.000 each. 

One cannot help but admire 
Harwood whose public con- 
duct has been exemplary since 
Epsom. Privately, there has 
been talk of black moods and 
lonely treks across his 
downland gallops. The Eclipse 
triumph may not have erased 
the memory of that bitter 
Derby defeat but it might 
have softened it 


Meanwhile, back in the 
Shahrastani camp, his trainer, 
Michael Stoute, said yesterday 
that he is likely to confirm the 
participation of his dual [Der- 


by scorer in the King George 
trie 


after he has spoken to his 
owner, the Aga Khan, at 
Newmarket's July meeting. 

Stoute said that Shahrastani 
had come out of his Irish 
Derby victory really well and 
also reported that Shardari 
will take on last season's King 
George winner. Petoski. in 
tomorrow's Princess of 
Wales's Stakes. 


Sandown should not pass 
without a mention of that 
hardy warrior. Morgans 
Choice who, belying his nine 
years, wore down the front- 
running Sugar Palm for a 
marvellous success in the two- 


mile Commonwealth Handi- 
cap. 

Although Mill On The Floss 
was beaten by the Jim Bolggr- 
trained Park Express in the 
Lancashire Oaks, Henry Cecil 
still captured the Old Newton 
Cup with Rakaposhi King, 
who was originally bought as a 
lead horse for Slip Anchor. 

The Warren Place trainer is 
mounting a 13-horse challenge 
at his local meeting and has 
high hopes that Gwydion. who 
had a bout of pleurisy, will 
acquit herself well in 
Thursday's six-furlong July 
Cup. Make a note, too. of a 
pair of highly rated two-year- 
olds on Wednesday — Martha 
Stevens in the Cecil Boyd- 
Rochfort Maiden Fillies 
Stakes .and Sheikh 
Mohammed's Suhailie in the 
Bernard van Cutsem Stakes. 


From our Irish Racing 

Correspondent 

Pat Eddery 1 . who currently 

riding with tremendous con- 
fidence. completed ? ct T ?®~ xer 
treble at the Phoenix Park on 
Saturday, but Irish racegoers 
are now resigned to the probabil- 
ity that this will be b» last 
reason to be retained by Vincent 
O'Brien. , , 

There are certain contractnal 
arrangements still to be sorted 
out before Eddery can become 
first jockey to Khaled Abdulla 

■ with the position at Ballydoyle . 
under offer to the French-based 
American Cash Asmusswu 

The highlight of the E«Merj 
treble was a neck win on Sarah 
in the Pacemaker Inter n a ti o n al 
Stakes over Brent Thomson’s 
mount. Esquire. 

Sarab wound up a wen- - 
supported 7-4 favourite and in 
an effort to catch him unawares 
Thomson drove Esquire into the 
lead and was several lengths in 
front turning for home. When 
Sarab emerged out of the pack 
one would have laid long odds on 
an easy win. but Esquire stuck 
well to his task 

The only home-trained runner 
in an all-Arab owners finish was 

■ Nashamaa. but he w as 2 Vi 
lengths farther away without 
giving his backers any cause for 
optimism during the race. 

The other two Eddery winners 
both came in handicaps on 
three-year-olds. Imposing and 
Mitsubishi Vision, trained by 
John O.vx. . 

The one .bit of bad lock for 
Eddery centred on a stalls 
failure, prior to the Mr ami Mrs 
Steven Peskoff race. Acushla 
had eventually to be shifted to an 
outside stall and this may have 
meant the difference between 
victory and defeat as she bad no 


company when trying to get on. 
idon To 


terms with London Tower. In 
victory 1 London Tower was 
crediting his trainer, Dermot 
Weld, with bis 1,100th winner in 
Ireland 

David O'Brien produced his 
first two-year-old runner of the 
season. Flawless Image, and she 
lived up to her name with a 
runaway six-length success over 
Highly Rated in the Ardrums 
House Stud Malden. O' Brien 
bad given $300,000 for this filly 
by the double Derby winner The 
Minstrel on behalf of Sheikh 
Mohammed. 


Malcolm Eckley. who Has 
done so well under both codes 
with Bold Illusion, added an- 
other winning string to his bow 
last ‘Wednesday when Mrs 
Sauga justified strong support in 
a 19 -runner Warwick handicap- 
The Shropshire trainer wastes 
no lime in bringing her out 
again and this progressive filly is 
napped to defy a penalty in the 
Highgaie Handicap at Wolver- 
hampton this evening. 

Formerly with Nick Vigors 
and John Bosley. Mrs Sauga 
displayed good speed on a 
number of occasions at two and 
three but she has shown marked 
improvement since joining 
Eckley this spring. 

Having her first run for three 
months, this daughter of 
Derrylin beat all except the 
speedy Music Machine at War- 
wick 16 days ago and she 
stepped up on that effort when 
returning to the Midlands track 
last week. Sieve Cauthen bring- 
ing her with a well-timed run to 
beat Native Ruler by a decisive 
two lengths. 

Despite the fact that Native 
Ruler could have opposed my 
nap on 91b better terms here, his 
connections have detlined the 
rematch and that looks' sound 
judgment. Walter S win burn 
takes over the ride from the 
champion jockey and the new 
partnership should have too 
much finishing speed for the 
Wolverhampton winner. First 
Experience. 

The frustrating Shibil can 
provide Swinbum with the sec- 
ond leg of a treble in the 
Kingswood Slakes half an hour 
earlier. Michael Stoute's Shetgar 
colt has reached the frame in 
each of his six races and will 
appreciate the return to 116 
miles after failing to stay

strokes were played that, in 
normal circumstances, might

The next ball, from Pjeott. 
rapped Edgar's left hand and he 
retired with a badly bruised

Another long hold-up followed 
when Coney was hit painfully in

The ■ New Zealanders,

to be conscious yesterday of the 


Jubilant Northants go 
for top title honours

TRING: Northamptonshire 
(4pts) heat Surrey by 69 ruas 
Fourth place is the highest 
Northamptonshire have ever 
finished in the Sunday league, 
but with their sixth successive 
win yesterday, they are making a 
determined challenge for higher 
honours. Their total of 264 for S. 


The massive Harper, enlivened 
the end of the innings by twice 
pulling Clarke high over square 
leg and squirting him exoiicaDy

Taylor hits 
out only 
to get hit 

By Ivo Tennant 

DERBY: Kent (4 pts) beat 
Derbyshire by // runs 
An excellent innings of 75 by 
Neil Taylor, ended only by a 
blow on the head, helped Kent, 
who won the toss, to a score of 
225 for 7 that was just beyond 
Derbyshire’s reach. 

When Barnett, who made 71, 
was out. 53 off the last five overs 
in murky light was too tall an 
order 

Not for the first time this 
season. Taylor showed he can 
play all the shots when the mood 
lakes him. After starting slowly, 
he put on 93 for the fourth 
wicket with Christopher 
Cowdrey hi 12 overs, unafraid 
to loft most of his drives and to 
make room by stepping outside 
leg stump. 

Some of Derbyshire's work in 
the outfield was untidy and. at 
an important stage in Kent's 
innings, Sharma gave away 25 
runs from two overs. Taylor had 
also been well supported by 
Tavare. who made 38, and it 
would have been a bigger total 
had not Taylor retired feeling 
groggy with five overs still 
remaining. 

On this bouncy pitch he took 
his eye off one ball which 
Malcolm dug in short and was 
hit on the helmet. His 75 was 
made off 79 balls and included 
one six and seven fours. Gra- 
ham Cowdrey. Baptiste and 
Marsh were out cheaply, and 
Kent finished with perhaps 20 
fewer nuts than they would have 
thought ideaL 

Derbyshire began by losing 
Anderson and Hill cheaply. But 
Barnett and Morris took them 
on steadily. After 20 overs, 
halfway through their innings, 
they were exactly what Kent had 
beau 74 for two. 

Morris. dropped on 33, 
reached a half century off 40 
bolls with a six and five fours 
but was then beaten by Chris- 
topher Cowdrey’s slower ball. 
He and Barnett, whose own half 
century took twice as long, put 
on 79 off 12 overs.

Depleted Essex in 
last-gasp finish 


By Peter Ball 


OLD TRAFFORD: Lancashire 
(4 pts) beat Essex by two runs. 

An undefeated 91 of 
comiscaUng brilliance by Clive 
Lloyd, which rolled back the 
years, was just enough to take 
Lancashire to their third John 
Player League victory of the 
season against the drastically 
depleted Essex — but bow dose 
Lancashire’s bowlers went to 
throwing it away. A maiden 
Sunday century by Paul Prich- 
ard on 97 deliveries kept Essex 
in the hunt to the bitter end. 
With two halls remaining, they 
needed five runs, but Makinson 
removed Pont to effectively put 
the game beyond Essex’s reach. 

As always, Lloyd began look- 
ing deceptively ill at ease, but as 
he got into his stride Essex just 
did not have enough fielders to 
contain him. It was simply 
vintage Lloyd. 

Turner and Pont, those ex- 
perts in one-day miserliness, 
were considered carefully, and 
then dismissed as a big pad 
thrust forward followed by the 
bat flashing in a savage are. Pont 
held his end up. ending 
Mendis's bid to celebrate the 
award of his county cap with a 
50. and inducing the only 
chance Lloyd gave, a mis-trmed 
square drive which flew through 
the diving Lilley’s grasp at 
backward cover. 

Turner was less fortunate as 
Fair brother also cut loose, his 
penultimate over a chapter of 
accidents. The first delivery 
brought him a painful blow on 
the foot, as Lloyd hammered the 
ball straight back. 

To add insult to injury, 
Fairbrother was dropped off the 
second. The fifth was deposited 


Elegant Roebuck fails 
to save Somerset 

By Alan Gibson 

TAUNTON: Hampshire (4pts) dignified couple (he has gjvei 
beat Somerset by eight wickets. up “swipin'”, his captain tell 


Somerset were put in, pos- 
sibly less as a Sunday League 
gambit than because Hampshire 
thought there might be some- 
thing in the pitch. There was. It 
was a sunny day. but we have 
had some unsettled weather in 
the west lately, and the ball 
moved occasionally both in the 
air and off the seam. Felton was 
bowled first ball, which did 
nothing to Iift Somerset's spirits. 

Roebuck played some elegant 
strokes. 

Harden came in at number 
three, and was out at 28, and 
then Richards was bowled for 
nought; high disaster for Somer- 
set- It is one of Roebuck's 
functions for Somerset to hold 
on and restore morale should 
Richards get out quickly, but he 
was fourth out, at 31, in the 
tenth over. Rose was the only 
batsman to put any stuffing into 
the innings, and it had been 
good to see him back in form. 
The only other serious resis- 
tance came from Dredge and 
Gard in an eightb-wicket stand 
when they had the good sense to 
bat quietly, as they still had 
plenty of overs in hand. 

The beneficiary contributed a 


dignified couple (he has given 
up “swipin'”, his captain tells 
os) and bowled a lively spell at 
the beginning of the Hampshire 
innings. Hampshire indeed lost 
two batsmen for 12 nms, but 
Turner and Robin Smith had no 
need to hurry

RUNS 

Not enough 
runs to 
challenge 
leaders 

By Peter Maxson 

Nottinghamshire strength- 
ened their position at the head 
of the John Flayer Special 
ipqgn«» wifi) a comfortable vic- 
tory against Worcestershire 
whom they beat by seven wick- 
ets and with 10 baits to spare, at 
New Road, yesterday. Requir- 
ing I88.(o win. Broad made 63. 
■ml Randall 67 not out. 

Phillip Neale's fear has been 
that Worcestershire have been 
selling themselves a bit short in 
this competition, hot his bats- 
men budded down to it well 
enough yesterday and with 
D'Olivdia. Hick. Weston and 
Patel making runs, they even 
hekf off Hadlee. But once again 
they fluted to score enough nms. 

Yorkshire romped home to a 
fifth victory against Leicester- 
shire at Middlesbrough. Potter 
had made 51 as Leicestershire 
were bonded out for 155, Car- 
rick taking four for 32. 
Yorkshire’s target now was sim- 
ple enough, and while they 
managed to lose Sharp and 
Metcalf, Neil Hartley made 57 
and Robinson 68 as Yorkshire 
won by sox wickets with 19 balls 
to spare. 

At Lord's, Middlesex tied 
with Warwickshire. Having 
been set a targrt of 169 to win, 
and lost four wickets for 73, a 
fine effort by Radley and 
Down ton all but got Middlesex 
home. Warwickshire had cho- 
sen to bat first, and though 
Lloyd effectively sealed off one 
end in an innings of 61, none of 
the remaining seven batsmen 
stayed with him for long.

ROWING 


over mid-off for six to bring 
Lloyd his 50, and Turner, after 
one more expensive over 
limped painfully from the fray. 

His replacement, Topley, was 
no more fortunate, and the pair 
pressed on mercilessly adding 
114 in 13 overs — Lloyd's 91 
coming from 80 deliveries. It is 
a measure of Fairbrother’s 
contribution that he has not 
been overshadowed totally. 

Essex could not have played a 
worse start in reply. Gladwin fell 
in the first over. Border, their 
one remaining experienced 
front line batsman, was wastc- 
fuily run out in the 7th, but as 
Lancashire's bowling waivered 
badly, Prichard and Stephenson 
renewed their optimism.

Crafty Dane plots 
Briton’s downfall 


By Jim Raiiton 


Lever and 
Essex 
ill at ease 

Essex, who still lead in the 
Britannic Assurance County 
Championship, took a heavy 
battering: at Old Trafford. on 
Saturday, when Patterson, who 
took six for 46. Afiott and 
Makinson rounded up their 
batsmen for 71 runs in 32.4 
overs. 

With Gooch, Pringle and 
Foster playing for England, and 
three others injured, Essex's 
stock was devalued, and the 
obvious weaknesses were im- 
mediately exploited by Fowler, 
Lancashire's acting captain, and 
his seam bowling triumvirate. 
By the dose Lancashire totalled 
177 for five, to make it an easily 
forgettable day for Lever. 
Essex's acting captain. He 
worked hard to pick up a couple 
of wickets, but then retired with 
an upset stomach. 

Conditions at Derby, too, 
favoured the faster bowlers. As 
Derbyshire dipped uncertainly 
to 117 in 46 overs, Alderman's 
eight wickets for 38 runs in 15 
overs was the Australian’s best 
performance. Later, Derbyshire 
won back a few marks, with 
Jean-Jacques collecting four of 
six wickets to fall, as Kent edged 
ahead to 128 from 46 overs. 

At Middlesbrough, where 
Leicestershire won the toss and 
batted against Yorkshire, Boon 
made 117, Potter (63), and 
Whitticase 45 not out. as 
Leicestershire made 291 for 
seven. 

Glamorgan were indebted to 
Morris, who made 98, Maynard 
(6 IX and Ontong (42X as they 
moved in fits and starts to 24S 
against Gloucestershire, for 
whom Walsh look five for 34 in 
19 overs. Worcestershire fell to 
Nottinghamshire's fast bowling 
brigade for 192 at New Road, 
where Hadlee, in ominous form 
with the New Zealand series 
with England now looming 
large, took 4-24, and Saxelby, 4- 
47.

It is never easy to win at 
Henley Royal Regatta no matter 
how talented and experienced 
you are. The part sensation of 
the finals yesterday was the 
defeat of Steve Redgrave in the 
Diamond Challenge ScuDs by 
Bjorne EUang, of Denmark- I 
write; part sensation, as Eftang. 
a world lightweight sculling 
champion and winner of tbc 
Double Sculls Challenge CUp 
here last year, is no push-over. 

Eltang has a rare talent One 
day be is a lightweight, yet 
within hours be loads his 
stomach with doughnuts and 
carbohydrates and. voQa, we 
have Eftang. the heavyweight. 

Yesterday, on paper. Slang 
conceded 44Ibs weight to 
Redgrave, who won the 
Diamonds' in 1983 and 1985. 
On paper Eltang was an also- 
ran, but the plot did not quite 
unfold that way. Redgrave went 
straight into the lead and was a 
length ahead at the top of the 
island, moving out to two and a 
half lengths by fire Barrier. We 
were all set for the second 
British elite win of the day. 

But just before Fawiey the 
crafty Dane had the audacity to 
creep up on Britain's Goliath. 
Not only did he creep up but the 
Dane was overlapping at 
Remenbam and suddenly 
Redgrave snapped- 

It was painful to watch. Eltang 
finished a length ahead — in feci, 
officially, Redgrave will go 
down in Henley's official history 
as “not rowed out” perhaps 
sculled out would be a better 
description. 

Redgrave said after the race: 
“I did the stupid thing of 
stopping when it was hurting 
him as much as me. I feel sorry 
for all my supporters here. 1 was 
embarrassed along the 
enclosures.” Well, I suppose, it 
will not be long before they all 
say: “Come back Steve, all is 
forgiven.” But give Eltang his 
due respect. He broke a big man 
with a total demonstration of 
guts and sculling skilL 

Five minutes earlier in the 
final of the Grand, the Union 
Jack was shivering fractionally, 
but not for too long. The British 
national heavyweight eight row- 
ing as Nautilus met Pennsylva- 
nia University. The Americans 
went hell for leather off the start 
and had half a length in the first 
quarter of a mile. But, despite 


their guts arid aggression, the 
Americans did not quite have 
the class to get away. 

The British eight con- 
centrated their minds well and 
rowing with Andy Holmes, the 
Olympic gold medal winner asa 
substitute, drew level at the 
threequarter mile and were a 
length ahead approaching the 
finish. The Americans, to their 
credit, pul in a final spurt and 
when the course ran out for 
them they were threequarters of 
a length down. It was a good 
Grand final. 

The Irish had a cracker in the 
Ladies' against Harvard 
University’s Freshmen. 
Dublin's Neptune led through- 
oul but not by much and there 
was only a canvas at the mile. 
Neptune answered in style 
everything that Harvard threw 
at them. The Irish coxswain, 
'Mousie' O'Brien, almost made 
the fetal mistake of taking his 
hands off the steering mecha- 
nism in a victory salute before 
his crew had crossed the line. He 
was smoking a fag before his 
crew found the energy to lift 
their shell off the water. 

Canada’s Ridley, with four 
Olympic gold medal winners on 
board, were pushed to a course 
record and half a length by 

London University's Tyrian in 
the Stewards. Hampton School, 
conceding 171b in weight, kept 
their rate realistically high and 
sensibly so to dispose of Bel- 
mont Hill School, of the United 
States, by half a length in the 
Princess Elizabeth. 

There was so much good 
racing to enthuse about yes- 
terday In the Visitors', Reading 
University, in a gutsy now, 
reeled back London University 
around the mile to win by 216 
lengths. London University, en 
route, set two intermediate 
course records. Bedford Star 
duly won the Britannia stroked 
by young junior international 
SingfiekL 

Anyway, by the end of the day 
the-almost local hero Steve 
Redgrave picked up the pieces, 
backed tv Andy Holmes, who 
earlier haul won the Grand, in 
the Silver Goblets. Redgrave 
and his partner beat the holdere, 
Ewan Pearson and David 
Riches, easily, and Redgrave 
must have been lifted by the 
sympathetic applause which 
ended his schizophrenic day.

Cowdray Park impress 

By John Watson 


Cowdray Park achieved a 13- 
8 victory in iheir British Open 
match against Les Diabies Bleus 
at Midhurst yesterday, a great 
triumph considering they have 
had to bring in two team 
replacements owing to injuries. 

Martin Glue, though only 
rated at 4. was moved into their 
No 3 position, and he filled it 
with much panache with the 
Chilean 7-goaler. Samuel Mo- 
reno. going forward 10 No 1 
Grenville waddington proved 
very quick at One. while Paul 
Withers was ubiquitous and 
energetic as ever at back. 


Les Diabies relied too heavily 
on their 10-goaJ Mexican. 
Memo Grachia. a_ brilliant solo- 
ist. but not so impressive as 
pivot man. Well-knit Cowdrav 
went into a 4-0 lead in the first 
chukka and had the upper-hand 
throughout. Grachia was sent 
off the field for arguing with the 
umpires in the last chukka.

MOTOR RACING: BRITON WINS BATTLE WITH FUEL, OIL AND RUBBER IN FRENCH GRAND PR1X 


Mansell creeps 
up to within 
a point of the 
world leader 




L W&JW 


From John Blonsden, Dijon 


Nigel Mansell scored his 
third victory of the season for 
Canon Wilfiams here yester- 
day jo climb to within a point 
of the world championship 
leader. Alain ProsL whom he 
beat to the line by 1 7 seconds 
in the French Grand Prix. 

With Ayrton Senna losing 
control of his JPS Lotus on the 
fourth lap as a result or sliding 
on an oil slick left by another 
car and ending up against a 


tyre barrier after sliding 
through two rows of c3tch 
fencing, it was left to the 
Williams and Marlboro 
McLaren teams to fight a 
lonely battle at the front of the 
80-lap race. 

As expected, it was a hattle 
in which tyre wear played a 
decisive role, for the revised 
Paul Ricard circuit had 
proved to be a considerable 
consumer of rubber during the 
two days of practice and 
testing. The Williams team 
designer. Patrick Head, who 
also controls team strategy in 
the absence of Frank Wil- 
liams. elected to stop his cars 
twice for fresh tyres while 
McLaren had decided to nurse 
their cars through on just two 
sets of tyres after making one 
stop. 

It looked as though the 
Williams tactics had won the 
day but as Mansell explained 
afterwards it had been closer 
than it had appeared “I had a 
close call early in the race 
when I hit that oil and slid off 


the track momentarily, and I 
also saw Alain get into trouble 
there as well. Then I found 
that mv fuel consumption was 
running too high after a few 
laps, so I had to turn down the 
boost Fortunately, after my 
second stop the pace of the 
race had cased 3 bit and this 
helped me to get back on 
schedule with the fuel meter.” 

Mansell had led from pole 
position for the first 24 laps 
before making his first tyre 
stop and letting Prost and 
Kcke Rosberg through in their 
McLarens. When Rosberg 
stopped on lap 30 Mansell 
moved back up to second and 
on lap 36 he retook the lead 
when Pros! made his change 
of tyres. 

He managed to build his 
lead to 17 seconds before his 
second pit call on lap 33 but 
although the Williams team 
goi him away again in under 
eight seconds the additional 
time lost through slowing 
down and then accelerating 
back into the race meant that 
Prost was again back in first 
place. Mansell quickly closed 
the gap and retook the lead on 
lap 59. 

“Even then 1 couldn’t relax, 
despite gaining about a second 
a lap fairly consistently. Alain 
is not only a magnificent 
driver, he is also a magnificent 
manager of his own race and 1 
fell sure he would pot me 
under big pressure during the 
closing laps. Fortunately, he. 



The triumphant 
too. had had to back off the 
boost and so you can say I am 
a very relieved as well as a 
very happy winner today.” 

Mansell's team partner. 
Nelson Piquet, held a firm 
fourth place for much of the 
race but in the closing laps he 
mounted a strong challenge on 
Rosberg and moved into third 
position eight laps from the 
end. The Ligier team once 
more proved to be the best ol 
the rest with Rene Arnoux and 
Jacques Laflite finishing fifth 
and sixth, a lap in arrears after 
another encouraging race. 

It was a miserable race for 
the JPS Lotus team, who had 
been hoping to give the latest 
Renault engine a full-length 
race test in Senna's car. John- 


roar of the Canon: Mansell takes the chequered flag in his Wfllsams-Honda 


ny Dumfries, however, made 
an excellent start in the second 
car and held sixth place for 
several laps before his first pit 
stop. Shortly afterwards he 
was hit by another car as he 
was in the process of lapping 
and received a puncture. 
Eventually his race ended with 
engine failure. 

Derek Warwick had "to 
make an unscheduled early 
stop for tyres on his Brabhaxn- 
BMW but thereafter ran reli- 
ably to become the top British 
.finisher in ninth place, one 
ahead of Martin Brundle, 
whose progress with his Data 
General Tyrrell was hampered 
severely in the closing Japs 
after the loss of fourth gear. 
The Tyrrell team suffered a 


ATHLETICS 


FOOTBALL 


Another Bislett chapter of Penalties 
triumph and truculence 

From Pat Butcher, Athletics Correspondent, Oslo x ^ 


There was a familiar tale at 
the famous Bislett Stadium here 
on Saturday night a world 
record and a British star refus- 
ing to talk to the media. 

The world record, her third in 
three years here, was the 46th m 
this stadium since 1924 and it 
went to Ingrid Kristiansen, 
wresting the international head- 
lines back home to Norway after 
eight years of British domina- 
tion. Taking three-quarters of a 
minute off her own 10,000 
metres world record with 30 
minutes 13.74 seconds was a 
remarkable achievement, even 
considering that the evert is in 
its infancy for women. 

The British star showing a 
truculent face to the media after 
demonstrating that his 
Commonwealth and European 
preparation is going perfectly 
with a 3:48 JO mile victory was 
Steve Cram. And that is a great 
shame. It seems that Cram feels 
that be was led into overstating 
bis criticism of Sebastian Coe 
and Steve Ovett for not contest- 
ing the national championships 
or representing England 
recently. 

In the past, Cram has treated 
the “loaded” questions and 
sensationalist approach to 
reporting with the contempt it 
deserves. Bat at Crystal Palace 
and Gateshead Press con- 
ferences it did not take much 
prompting to solicit his very- 
strong views on the absence of 
Coe and Ovett. And It may be 
that he is angry with himself for 
what he sees as a temporary 
lapse in the exemplary behav- 
iour that be has shown both on 
and off the track since be 
attended his first international 
championship, the Common- 
wealth Games eight years ago. 

The irony of Ovett’s former 
refusal to talk to the media is 
that be is now talking to the 
entire nation as a television 
commentator. 

Another excess that Cram 
may regret was the eccentric 


pace in Saturday's mile, with a 
5324 seconds first quarter by 
James Mayes, which left Cram 
flagging on the last lap as Steve 
Scott closed rapidly. But nobody 
should be thinkin g of world 
records in only their fourth race 
of the season when they have 
two major championships 
ahead- And Cram is looking 
good for'- Edinburgh in three 
weeks time and Stuttgart late 
next month. 

Mrs Kristiansen's opponents 
in the 10.000 metres in Stuttgart 
should look no higher than 
second place. Her performance 
on Saturday is the best at the 
distance since Ron Clarke took 
34.6 seconds off the men's 
record In the same stadium in 
1965. And although Mrs 
Kristiansen showed a similar 
championship frailty to Clarke 
when she could only finish 
fourth in the Olympic marathon, 
there does not seem to be 
anybody of the quality of Oppo- 
nents who deprived the prolific 
world record breaking Clarke of 
a championship victory to sur- 
prise Mrs Kristiansen. Es- 
pecially since she confidently- 
predicted that she will take 
another 30 seconds off this 
record. 

If the scandalous decision to 
eliminate lapped runners in 
May's United Kingdom 10.000 
metres championship had been 
repeated in this Mobil grand 
prix race, Mrs Kristiansen 
would have finished by herself 
instead of having to barge 
through a group of her 27 
competitors to get to the finish 
line. She coaid also have done 
without a pacemaker. For when 
she took the lead under three 
kilometres, she ran the next 
three kilometres within fractions 
of three minutes each, the result 
of some curious distance train- 
ing — Mrs Kristiansen has been 
using a treadmill for 40 minutes 
at a time to perfect her pace 
judgement 

The men's 10,000 metres was 


almost as spectacular daring the 
race, but much more so after- 
wards. For the winner in his 
debut at the distance was Said 
Aouita, the Moroccan Olympic 

5.000 metres champion and 
world record holder. Aooita.woa 
in 27.26.1 1. 13 seconds outside 
the world record, which he later 
said he wonld easily have broken 
had he .not been spiked on the 
fourth of the 25 laps. He was 
certainly spiked and needed 
three stitches in his left ankle, 
which will keep him out of 
competition for two weeks. 

But if Aouita wins gold medals 
for his track performances, he 
deserves an Oscar for his Press 
conferences. It is more a case of 
“loaded” answers with Aouita. 
Talk of world records is normal 
from the Moroccan, it is just a 
case of how many be intends to 
break this week. To shorten a 
long story (and it always is with 
Aouita), he wanted ns to know 
that Alberto Cora was the 
culprit who did the spiking. 

With 37 competitors, the 
video evidence was inconclusive. 
But Cora, as well as being 
Olympic, world and European 
champion at 10,000, is also 
Italian. Aouita lives in Italy, and 
happened to mention before the 
race that he wanted to drive 
Cova up to the marathon 
distance. 

He also said: “When I discov- 
ered tonight just how easy the 

10.000 is, I realized why Cova is 
winning all the time.” And 
Aorila said, in the only moment 
of coyness^ “Figure it out for 
yourselves.” 

Jack Buckner had an impres- 
sive runaway win in the 3,000 
metres, perfect preparation for 
his Commonwealth 5,000 me- 
tres. And Heike Drecbsler ran a 
wind-aided 1031 seconds 100 
metres, another superb perfor- 
mance for a woman who has only- 
taken op sprinting this season. 
She has set three world records 
in the last fortnight. 


Penalty shoot-outs could help 
shape the new-look Football 
League. The sudden-death 
drama, highlighted in the quar- 
ter- finals of the World Cup, will 
be employed if the League's 
American-styte play-off sysiem 
fails to settle end-of-season 
issues. 

“It would be an absolute 
tragedy if we do get promotion 
and relegation settled by 
penalties," admitted the League 
president, Philip Carter. “But 
what else can you do? Clubs 
could go on playing until 
August!” 

The revolutionary develop- 
ment has been agreed by the 
League's management commit- 
tee and is bound to provoke a 
mixed reaction among clubs. Mr 
Carter, the Everxon chairman, 
added: “We want to be as fair as 
possible, but we have terrible 
time restraints.” 

Football's restructuring win 
see the first division cut by two 
clubs over the next two years. 
For seasons 1986-87 and 1987- 
88 three clubs will definitely be 
relegated to the second division, 
but only two from the second 
will be guaranteed promotion. 

However, as agreed earlier 
this year at the League’s extraor- 
dinary general meeting, the side 
finishing fourth from bottom in 


the top flight, plus the third, 
fourth and fifth-placed teams in 
the second, will play off for an 
additional “promotion” place. 
• The Football Association 
have given the go-ahead for the 
continuation of random drug- 
icsiing at League matches. They 
revealed that in the seven 
seasons of tests, only one (un- 
named) player has been found to 
have used a banned substance, 
and that was a medicine he did 
not know was prohibited.

FOR THE RECORD 


Convincing 

Mamola 


From Michael Scott 
Spa, Belgium 

Randy Mamola again showed 
supremacy in the rain yesterday, 
when he rook his Lucky Strikes- 
sponsored Yamaha to the 
convincing victory in an in- 
cident-packed Belgian Grand 
Prix. 

While a number of other top 
riders tumbled off at the notori- 
ous Spa hairpin Mamola forged 
ahead, pulling off three seconds 


a lap on second placed Eddie 
Lawson's Marlborough 
Yamaha, which in turn drew 
away from the rest of the field. 

Frenchman Christian Saron 
emerged from the confusion to 
take third, making it a Yamaha 
team clean sweep, with fourth 
placed Wayne Gardner 
(Rothmans Honda ) lucky to 
survive a mistake when he 
locked up the front wheel and 
took to the escape road. He 
rejoined five places down, in 
eighth, and worked his way up 
again, pushing the British 
Yamaha rider Rob McElnca to 
filth at three-quarter distance. 

Victims of the hairpin in- 
cluded Ron Haslam fEJf- 
Hondal. the British-based 
Australian Paul Lewis (Heron 
Suzuki). Raymond Roche 
(Honda), of France, and Mike 
Baldwin (Yamaha), of the 
United States. None was hurt, 
but Roche's incident was 
frightening. He was thrown off. 
bui the bike continued on its 
wheels, running into the crash 
barrier just short of a number of 
pit crew members. 

Mamola's victory, his first for 
O'er a year, displaces Gardner 
in second place tn the 
championship and pulls him 
closer to title leader Lawson.

Streiff halted his car alongside

damaged before the blaze was 
extinguished.

Early Hinault 
setback in Tour 


From John Wiicockson, Li even 


Questions were being posed 
yesterday during the third stage 
of the Tour ■ de France, on 
whether Bernard Hinault has 
already lost his chance of win- 
ning the race for a -record sixth 
C/me. His team. La Vie Claire, 
finished only fifth on the 35- 
mile team lime trial on Saturday 
afternoon, and lost almost two 
minutes to the winning SystCme 
U formation of his big French 
rival. Laurent Fignon. 

The banners and placards 


held by the fans massed along 
the sides of the twisting roads 
through the cornfields of Pic- 
ardy yesterday, proclaimed: 
“Bon courage Hinault Win 
your sixth tour.” The whole 
"French nation echoes this wish, 
but the indications of him 
succeeding are not good. 

Asked before the start of the 
stage in Paris about his team's 
poor performance. Hinault re- 
plied: "We had some- problems 
in the early kilometres when we 
had to watt for our Swiss rider. 
Winterberg. because of the knee 
he injured in the morning. But 
there were only two. sometimes 
three, of the team who were 
riding strongly.” 

His co-team leader. Greg 
LeMond. of (he Llnited States, 
had a slightly different explana- 
tion. He said: “For most of i he 
time trials only Steve (Bauer) 
and I were leading the team. 
When we rode at the speed we 
knew was needed to win, the 
others couldn't keep up with us, 
even HinaulL” 

Bauer, his Canadian friend 
and team colleague, concurred 
with this assessment. He added: 
“Last week. Greg and 1 were 
training hard, including motor- 
paced training, but not the 
others in the team.” 


raining. He explained: “1 have 
conjunctivitis” 

There were happier ex- 
pressions on the faces of Fignon 

— who said it was loo early to 
predict the outcome of the tour 

— and Robert Miliar, whose 
Panasonic team faced third in 
the team time trial. 

Millar's Australian team- 
mate. Phil Anderson, said: 
“Robert was very strong in the 
time trial. Much stronger than 
me.” 

This was not surprising, be- 
cause Anderson had figured in 
the breakaway group during 
Saturday morning's 53-mile 
road race stage from Nanterre to 
Sceaux. 

Anderson finished fourth of 
the stage, just ahead of the hero 
of the day, Alex Stieda. from 
Coquitlam. British Columbia. 
Stieda. the member of the 
American team 7-Eleven, was 
caught by Anderson's group 
after a 33-mile solo break that 
netted him three time bonuses 
and the leadership of five com- 
petitions. including the Yellow 
jersey. He is the first Canadian 
to-achieve th/s feat 

Slieda's glory lasted only a 
few hours, because his team 
suffered a crash and three 
punctures, and lost five minutes 
in the team time trial. Other 
squads fared even 
worse.including the Colombian 
teams which bad six of their 
men eliminated for finishing 
outside the time limiL 

Yesterday's 133-mile stage 
was due to finish much later 
than usual because of French 
television's request to schedule 
it after their coverage of the 
men's final at Wimbledon. 


Hinault himself took two 
days' rest after quitting the Tour 
of Brittany race. Yesterday the 
3 1 -year-old Breton was. un- 
usually for him. wearing sun- 
glasses. even though it was 


It was significant that a break 
made by two Belgians, a Dutch- 
man and a Frenchman was 
chased and caught by the main 
group led by Fignon's team, 
after creating a near four-minute 
lead in the opening 30 miles.

Argentina's only points of the

they recovered some of their

Ballesteros keeps 
his unbeaten 
sequence intact 


From Mitchell Platts, Paris 


Severiano Ballesteros will 
move on to ibe Open 
Championship, which starts at 
Tumberrv on Thursday week, 
with his 'astonishing unbeaten 
run still intact following his 
victory in the Rsugeot French 
Open on the La Bouhe course 
here yesterday. Ballesteros has 
now won four successive tour- 
naments on the European cir- 
cuit. It constitutes a record — 
Nick Faldo had three in a row in 
1983 — since the British PGA 
and the Continental champion- 
ships were first co-ordinated 10 
1970. , 

The power and grace 01 
Ballesteros' artistry have en- 
abled him to grow from the 
seven-year-old boy who first 


learned the game by hitting 
pebbles with a club comprised of 


pebbles with a club comprised of 
a rusting iron head attached to a 
stick into the finest golfer in the 
world- 

He has now won no fewer 
than 47 tournaments. including 
two Opens and two US Masters, 
since he first came 10 prom- 
inence in the Open Champion- 
ship in 1976. Then, at the age ot 
19. he led after three rounds 
only to finish runner-up to 
Johnny Miller. Yet his latest 
achievement is quite remark- 
able. considering the pressur- 
ized arena of modern-day golf. 

Ballesteros began with a 
three-stroke lead .front Vicente 
Fernandez, of Argentina, but on 
a course softened by rain for the 
first time during the tournament 
he compiled a virtually flawless 
round. ' ' 

In the end he could afford to 
smile in spite' of taking three 
puns on the last green as he 


-savage conditions in -which 
Ballesteros honed bis game on 
his home course at the Real 
Club of Pedrena ... 

He made a conservative start, 
wuh seven successive pare. 
Then, as xf galvanized by the 
progress of Longer and Faldo, he ■ 
pushed his foot, flat .10 the 
boards. He holed from 1 2 feet a 1 
the long eighth for a four, then 
from six feet for another birdie 
at the ninth.. 

In truth. Fernandez;. wt?a 
gathered three birdies to match 
Ballesteros’ outward. .34. -re, 
mamed a distinct threat; as he 
went on to birdie both the 1 0th 
and 14th holes. But Ballesteros 
was playing alongside tile dim 
Argentinian and always, ap- 
peared to have sufficient in 
reserve. ’ ' ' 

Ballesteros remained in com- 
mand with a two at foe L3th 
and. in reiainibgtbe ' French 
Open title, moved-.to 86 under 
par for the 32 rounds he -has 
played in Europe this season; . 

He will almost certainly start 
as the favourite lo'-.-wm iai 
Turnberry. Ballesteros. ufll be 
eagerly seeking the £70.000 firet . 
prize which would enable him to 
become foe first player to. earn 
£1 million on 'foe European 
circuit. . 

T anger. OUt in 33- at Dne.Slage 
edged to wiibin one stroke, of 
Ballesteros but be dropped shots 
at. two of foe short holes coming 
home. Langer has not won fots 
year, buu like Faldo, who. lost 
momentum only when he drove 
into the trees to take'seven-al the 
eighth, should be encouragpdby 
his efforts. * 1 


completed, a 69 for a winning 
aggregate of 269, which is 19 
under par. Ballesteros won by 
two strokes from Fernandez 
(68). with Bernhard Langer (68).

Japan’s lost weekend 

By Joyce Whitehead v \ 


England beat Japan 3-0 on 
Saturday and 2-1 yesterday. In 
the firet match Julie Bannister 
(Cheshire) and Vickey Dixon 
(Cambridgeshire) scored before 
Sandy Lister (Suffolk) added a 
third after a brilliant solo run. 

Y esterday Kate Parker 
(Middlesex) was the scorer, her 
firet goal was lucky but the 
second ended a classic move 
with Karen Brown (Surrey). 
These two are starting 10 play 
well together. The clever 


Kuniko Hori. of Tenri. Univer- 
sity. scored for the visitors. 

The Japanese tend to find the 
English physique a^- -bit 
overpowering. England had in- 
numerable chances and eight 
penalty corners went a begging.- , 


Japan, who have not qualified 
for foe World Cup. will- now 
play Wales , in Newtown-. ; En- 
gland. in their build-up to foe 
World Cup in August wilf meet 
Ireland in Dublin.

MONDAY JULY 7 1986 


An awesome 

new Becker 
takes his bow 


SPORT 


By Rex Bellamy, Tennis Correspondent 


Boris Becker, aged 18, re- 
tained the Wimbledon men’s 
singles championship by beat- 
ing Ivan Lendl 6-4, 6-3. 7-5 in 
yesterday’s final, which lasted 
two hours and two minutes. 
Lendl, champion of the Unit- 
ed States and France, was a 
break up in the first and third 
sets of his first Wimbledon 
final — against the best grass 
court player in the world- 

lt is awfully difficult to win 
the French championship on 
shale and then win seven 
matches on grass after only 
two weeks of rest and prepara- 
tion. Moreover, had Lendl 
won yesterday he would have 
been the first player since Jan 
Kodes (another Czechoslo- 
vak). in 1973. to win the 
Wimbledon final after five-set 
matches in the quarter-final 
and semi-final rounds. 

Ail things considered. Lendl 
proved himself as a grass court 
player. Becker, too, had some- 
thing to prove. It is often said 
that defending a title success- 
fully is more difficult than 
winning it in the first place. 
That is particularly true of a 
teenage prodigy who comes 
out of the blue. But the Becker 
we saw yesterday was a better, 
more mature player than the 
Becker or 1985. 

Lendl began the match so 
well that it was as if he 
regarded Becker as something 
of a lightweight after Slobodan 
Zivojinovic. Lendl had three 
break points in the first game, 
broke through for 3-2 with the 
help of impressive winners 
down each line but instantly 
bad to concede his own ser- 


vice game. Breaking Becker's 
service so soon is the equiva- 
lent of punching an Irish prop 
forward in the first scrum- 
mage of the match. 

From 4-4 in the first set 
Becker won three consecutive 
games at a cost of only three 
points. At 2-2 in the second set 
Lendl had a break point but 
Becker frustrated him and 
later took the set with a run of 
three games in which he lost 
only four points. 

The nature of the tennis? 
Well, keeping a tally of aces 
and double faults was like 
checking who was ringing the 
bell more often at one of those 
fairground strength tests. We 
were by no means bewildered 
by subtlety, though Becker 
played some neat volleyed 
drops and Lendl often exploit- 
ed the angles to dazzling 
effect, often when he was 
under stress and on the run. 
But the relentless brutality of 
the tennis, plus the long- 
distance glares the players 
were giving each other, 
seemed to have a chilling 
effect on the climate. 

Altogether Becker served 14 
aces and seven double faults. 
Lendl served six of each. 
Becker lost some of his mo- 
mentum at the beginning of 
the third set. went 0-3 down, 
then held his service in spite of 
two double faults. He counter- 
attacked with blazing ferocity 
to break back for 3-4 but at 4-5 
Becker was serving at 0-40 
down: three set points. 

Becker responded with such 
brilliantly violent tennis that 
he won five consecutive 


Sun and grass 
and drug tests 


By Rex Be llamy 


These 100th championships 
were remarkable for “firsts” 
or “first sinces”, and for 
mostly superb weather and its 
welcome consequence — dry, 
worn courts, which provided a 
more consistent bounce than 
usual, and gave the men in 
particular a better chance to 
play attractive tennis. Nor 
most we forget die astonishing 
progress of Pat Cash, suppos- 
edly convalescent after an 
appendectomy. In the women's 
singles, Chris Lloyd had 
strenuously exciting matches 
with Helena Sokova and Hana 
Mandlikova. 

The “firsts” included drug 
tests and the centre court 
debut of a ball girl. The “first 
sinces” (excluding Martina 
Navratilova's assault on the 
records) were six in number. 
For the first time since 1970, 
no Americans got through to 
the last four of the men's 
singles. And for the first time 


since 1909, the men's semi- 
finalists were all Europeans. 

Henri Leconte was the first 
Frenchman in the semi-finals 
.since 1946, and Slobodan 
Zivojinovic the first Yugoslav 
since 1967. For the first time 
since 1965 no player born in 
the United Mates reached 
either singles final, and for the 
first time since 1977 the 
women's final was contested 
by players who were both born 
in Europe. 

The tennis did not satisfy 
everyone. A friend and col- 
league from a village in the 
Alps has been calling home at 
regular intervals. Family and 
friends have had their first 
experience (via television) of 
Wimbledon and grass corn! 
tennis. Their reaction? “Ce 
n'est pas du vrai tennis. II n*y a 
ancon ^change" (it is not real 
tennis — there are no rallies). 
These day-court nations are 
spoilt

points. From 4-5 and 0-40 
down, in fact he lost only four 
more points. The last game 
produced a characteristic 
Becker point. Lendl hit a 
forehand down the line. 
Becker dived to retrieve it, fell 
and was still on his knees as 
Lendl's shot hit the net cord — 
but Becker still managed to 
tap a backhand cross-court for 
a winner. 

The lid fell off the cup as 
Becker was bowing to the 
Duchess of Kent. But such 
tricky manoeuvres are the 
lad's pleasure rather than his 
business. As a champion he is 
awesome yet admirable: an 
exceptional blend of strength 
and skill, enthusiasm and will- 
power. Becker plays the big 
points as if they were the 
ultimate challenges of his 
calling— as, indeed, they often 
are. To dart across a more 
sensitive area, he also has the 
charm and diplomacy to fit 
perfectly into the difficult role 
of the national hero Germany 
has been seeking. 

The men's doubles title 
went to Joakim Nystrom and 
Mats Wilander, previously re- 
garded as Sweden’s “reserve” 
doubles team. They saved six 
match points in a quarter-final 
with the United States cham- 
pions, Ren Flach and Robert 
Seguso, won a semi-final 
against the Australian cham- 
pions, Paul Annacone and 
Christo van Rensbuig, and 
then beat Gary Donnelly and 
Peter Fleming to become the 
first Swedish winners since 
Sven Davidson and Ulf 
Schmidt in 1958. 

Champion 
kept on

Martina Navratilova beat 
Hana Mandlikova 7-6, 6-3 in 
an hour and twelve minutes in 
the women's singles final at 
Wimbledon on Saturday. 

This was Miss 
Navratilova’s fifth consecu- 
tive win, a feat matched only 
by Suzanne Lenglen, and her 
seventh altogether, which 
equals the tally of Dorothea 
Lambert Chambers and has 
been surpassed only by Helen 
Wills Moody, champion eight 
times (Rex Bellamy writes). 
As in 1983 and 1984, Miss 
Navratilova won the title 
without conceding a set 

There were probably three 
main reasons why Miss 
Navratilova recovered from 
2-5 down to win. One was the 
superiority of her serving (her 
first service was remarkably 
consistent) and the related 
superiority of her service re- 
turn. A second was the greasi- 
ness of the court. Miss 
Navratilova kept her feet bet- 
ter and had an advantage in 
strength when the balls be- 
came heavy. 

A third was the fact that 
Miss Mandlikova. possibly 
deluded by her early success, 
carefully persisted in playing 
pianissimo — too often push- 
ing the ball instead of whack- 
ing it , which meant that she 
gave Miss Navratilova frac- 
tionally more epunter punch- 
ing lime and was wide. Miss 
Navratilova’s anticipation 
was sharp enough without that 
indulgence. 

Miss Mandlikova achieved 
a 5-2 lead because whereas 
Miss Navratilova (expecting 
an early storm) began the 
match tentatively. Miss 
Mandlikova was hitting all the 
lime, even with mishits and 
skidding improvizations. 
Once Miss Navratilova had 
settled down she transformed 
2-5 into 5-5 at the cost of only 
2 points and, thereafter, was 
always in chaige — much to 
the satisfaction, no doubt of 
her housekeeper, five dogs and 
a cat who were watching it all 
on television back home in 
Texas. 

Navratilova 
stops at two 

Martina Navratilova's am- 
bition of becoming the first 
player since Billie Jean King 
in 1973 to win three Wimble- 
don titles in the same year was 
dashed yesterday when she 
and her mixed-doubles part- 
ner. Heinz Gunthardu of Swit- 
zerland. were defeated by Ken 
Flach and Kathy Jordan, of 
the United States. 6-3. 7-6. 

Miss Navratilova won her 
fifth consecutive singles title — 
and seventh overall - by 
defeating Hana a Mandlikova. 
of Czechoslovakia. 7-6. 6-3 on 
Saturday. 

In the women's doubles 
final yesterday. Miss 
Navratilova partnered Pam 
Shriver. of the United States, 
in a 6-1. 6-3 victory against 
Miss Mandlikova and Wendy 
Turnbull df Australia.

CRICKET 


Gatting’s summer has just begun 


By John Woodcock, Cricket Correspondent 


Not even their most incorri- 
gible critics will find fault, I 
imagine, with the selectors for 
yesterday's announcement 
that ihey have asked Mike 
Gatting to lead England 
against New Zealand in the 
second series of the summer, 
sponsored by CornhilL 

The first series, against In- 
dia. seems likely to end with a 
draw. In the third Test at 
Edgbaston the sides are dead 
level. India having replied to 
England's first innings of 390 
by making the same total. 

England had hoped to do 
better than this. There was just 
about a full day's play on 
Saturday, thanks to the time 
allowed to make up for time 
lost and the ball moved about 
for the faster bowlers, li also 
turned for the spinners and 
occasionally kept low. 

There was a time when 
India would soon have been 
rolled over in conditions such 
as these. England would have 
bowled better, for one thing, 
and India would have batted 
nothing like as well as they do 
now. 

In the event, England had a 
frustrating day. Gatting decid- 
ed early on that Foster, 
Radford and Pringle ought to 
be able to bowl India oul In 
theory he was right but in 
practice he finished up down a 
tactical cul-de-sac. Of the 
three of them only Foster 


Mansell’s 

triumph 

Britain's Nigel Mansell in a 
Williams-Honda won 
yesterday’s French Grand Prix 
at Le Castellet, his third 
victory in eight races, putting 
him second in the world 
championship by just one 
point. The reigning worid 
champion, Alain Prost, of 
France, was second in his 
McLaren-T AG/Porsche to 
lake the lead in the 1986 title 
race, with 39 points to 
Mansell's 38.

Botha lured 

Northampton rugby foot- 
ball dub have persuaded the 
South African captain, Naas 
Botha. 10 play for them next 
season. He will arrive at the 
end of September, a club 
spokesman, Don White, 
announced. 

In the picture 

There has been a sudden dip 
in ticket sales for Frank 
Bruno's world heavyweight 
title bout against the World 
Boxing Association champi- 
on. Tim Witherspoon, at 
Wembley Stadium on July 19. 
The promoter. Mike Barrett 
said: “The impression has 
wrongly been given that the 
fight is being shown live, but 
this is only in the State^” 


bowled at his best, and he was 
decidedly unlucky. 

To cut a long stoty short, by 
the time Gatting gave 
Emburey a chance (and the 
ball was turning) India, 182 
for three at the start of play, 
were well past 300. 

Gower used to make a 
practice of under-bowling 
Emburey. and both here and 
at Headingley Gatting has 
done the same. There seems to 
me to be no point in choosing 
a balanced attack and then 
taking no advantage of it. On a 
day when the ball swung, 
Gooch must also have been 
worth a try. In the end 
England even lost the 
initiative. 

But Gauing's innings of 1 83 
not out. proof that he is not 
worried out of his mind by the 

More cricket, Page 29 

captaincy, was all the selectors 
could have asked for. and New 
Zealand's batting is unlikely 
10 lake as much cracking as 
India’s. A glance down the 
Indian score-sheet shows how 
well they bat these days. Even 
Sharma. the only one to be out 
in single figures, has made a 
Test fifty. 

On Saturday Amamaih 
showed the way and 
Azharuddin played with a 
wrisiy charm, especially off 
his legs. Bui they all gave their 
supporters the excuse to make 


SPORT IN BRIEF 


Mcliroy: approached

Sammy Mcliroy, Northern 
Ireland's World Cup captain 
in Mexico, could be playing 
his football next season in 
Sweden (George Ace writes). 
Mcliroy said Oigryte IF. of 
Goieborg, the Swedish first 
division champions, ap- 
proached him on three occa- 
sions in the past week. 

Split level

an awful lot of noise as India 
edged towards England’s totaL 
If Foster was bowled into 
the ground that was because 
he looked more like taking 
wickets than Radford and 
Pringle. He did. in fact, re- 
move Azharuddin. Sbastri 
and Kapil Dev within the 
space of 25 balls in the 
afternoon, and he made the 
ball leave the right-handers 
late enough and often enough 
to beat the bat quite regularly. 
Radford, chosen to share the 
new ball with Foster, has 
bowled rather below his best 
county form. 

I listened 10 some interest- 
ing impressions from a former 
South African captain, who 
was watching England in ac- 
tion for the first lime for some 
while. He seemed surprised by 
the ordinariness of much of 
England’s cricket, and its lack 
of edge, and said that in South 
Africa Radford's success for 
Transvaal (he was the second 
leading wicket-taker in the 
Currie Cup last winter) comes 
at first change, in support of 
two fast bowlers, rather than 
as an intended spearhead. 

However, there was nothing 
ordinary about ‘ one of 
French's catches or another of 
Gooch's. 1 have not seen 
many as good as the one by 
French, taken off a thick 
inside edge to a fierce break- 
back from Foster. It gave 
French the confidence to give 


Final curtain 

Bonn (Reuter) - The West] 
German football captain, 
Karl-Heinz Rummenigge. 
said yesterday he had played 
his last match for the national 
team. “My career in the 
national side is at an end. 
Ninety-five internationals, 10 
wonderful years, over,” he 
wrote in the Welt am Sonntag 
newspaper. The former Bay- 
ern Munich forward now 
plays for inter Milan of Italy. 

Cowley beaten 

Annette Cowley, die South 
African -born swimmer who 
two weeks ago was added to 
England's Commonwealth 
Games team, suffered her fuist 
defeat in Britain. The double 
national champion was beaten 
by Nikki Fibbens in the 100 
metres freestyle on the second 
day of the Monk multi-nation 
gala in Leeds. Fibbens record- 
ed a personal best of. the 
season of 58.0secs to beat 
Cowley by 0.29 of a second.

a top-class, exhibition of 
wicketkeeping, which fnddd- 
ed his taking: a second very 
good catch, this time off a 
skied mi$*hit by Kapil Dev. 

The pity of it is that French 
is not a better batsman. It is 
partly because India have a 
wicketkeeper-(as well as sever- 
al bowlers) who can get runs 
that they are proving so 
difficult to beat In the Test 
matches More has so far 
scored 1 25 runs at an average
