ing of the Government's 
stance yesterday towards pres- 
sure on South Africa to end 
apartheid, in the wake of a 
warning by Mr Leon Brittan 
that Sir Geoffrey Howe, For- 
eign Secretary, needed to be 
• armed with the threat of 
“international coercive 
measures'* to make an impact 
in Pretona. 

Senior Cabinet sources let it 
be known that Mr Brittan was 
not speaking out of turn when 
he said that Sir Geoffrey’s 
mission would be “utterly 
hofjeless” without the South 
Africans absorbing the mes- 
sage that a failure to make 
concessions earned penalties. 

At the same time, soundings 
among Conservative back- 
benchers disclosed a growing 
acceptance that a rebuff by 
Pretoria will leave Britain no 
option but gently to turn the 
screw. 

Sir Anthony Kershaw, 
chairman of the all-party For- 
eign Affairs Committee, said 
he saw no conflict between Mr 
Brittan's comments and those 
of the Foreign Secretary, 

“It’s not a question of 
principle at AIL We're all with 
one or two exceptions, in 


form. The question is whether 
the existing ones are having 
sufficient effect.” 

From the right of the party, 
Mr Andrew Htmier. secretary 
of the backbench foreign af- 
faire committee and an oppo- 
nent of sanctions, said; “I see 
with regret that the consen sus

■of Tory MJV support for. the 
argument against sanctions is 
wavering. 

“This is the last time the 
Conservative Party will stand 
up and say no to sanctions. 
The argument has been lost by 
degrees since Nassau.” 

Mr James Pawsey, another 
influential right-winger, said 
he could only support some 
kind of action against South 
Africa if it was part of a 
concerted international effort. 

One leading minister sought 
to leave President Botha in no 
doubt of the consequences of 
sitting light when Mr Botha 
meets the Foreign Secretary 
on July 23 and 29. 


He said that “measures of 
disapproval” would be taken 
by many countries, including 
Britain, if Pretoria ignored 
calls for the release of Mr 
Nelson Mandela, the jailed 
leader of the African National 
Congress, and for negotiations 
with black leaders. 

It was suggested that the 
Cabinet shared Sir Geoffrey’s 
discomfort at being des- 
patched on his mission with- 
out EEC support. At the same 
time, it was said that there was 
no division between Mrs 
Thatcher and her Cabinet 
colleagues over the approach 
to Pretoria. No one in the 
Cabinet wanted full-blown 
economic sanctions or be- 
lieved they would succeed. 

The Prime Minister appears 
to be playing a labyrinthine 
political game in her stance on 
sanctions. Her denunciation 
of hard-hitting economic steps 
as “immoral” is calculated to 
please the right of her party, 
but she has also left herself the 
escape route of instituting 
lesser measures, signalled by 
the EEC summit in The 
Hague, such as a ban on new 
investment and imports of 
coal, iron and steeL

Finance delay for 
Channel tunnel 

By Michael Bafty, Transport Editor 

Lord Pennock, joint chair- felt better to postpone issue of 

the prospectus until outstand- 
ing details on financing, con- 
struction and contracts with 
British and French Railways 
had been fully cleared up. 

“Our prospectus is about 
ready and due. But because 
the project is of such major 
proportions, the advice of 
brokers and bankers is not to 
issue the prospectus until 


man of the EuroTunnel group, 
admitted yesterday that finan- 
cial backers were raising unex- 
pected queries about the 
financing of the £6 billion 
Channel tunnel scheme due 
for completion in about 1993. 

There were also problems in 
Parliament, where objectors 
complained that the select 
committee was rushing the 
scheme through without giv- 
ing them a proper hearing. 

Lord Pennock said that the 
prospectus for the first £200 
'million had been postponed 
until the end of the summer 
after queries from financial 
backers about both the con- 
struction contract and de- 
tailed financing of the project 
The delay would cost the 
founder shareholders about 
£1 million a week. 

He admitted that they had 
overestimated the speed with 
which so complex a scheme 
would go through, and that 
banks were asking more ques- 
tions about the prospectus 
than they had expected. 

But he insisted that it was a 
mailer of explanation rather 
than disagreement The delay 
arose simply because it was 


everything is in place on all 
aspects of the scheme,” Lord 
Pennock said. 

Mr Jonanathan Sloggett 
chairman of the opposition 
Flexilink consortium, said: 
“Lord Pennock’s statement 
does not stand up to the most 
cursory examination. He has 
been telling us for months that- 
it is in the bag. There is plenty 
of money in the City, and 
ample time to get the prospec- 
tus out by August. 

“Their case is inaccurate, 
badly presented and full of 
holes, particularly in regard to 
capital cost, traffic forecasts, 
and tariff and interest rate 
assumptions. EuroTunnel 
have been rumbled. This is the 
beginning of the end for the 
Channel tunneL”

Firm stand on docks 


The Government does not 
intend to overturn a Lords 
amendment to the Dockyard 
Services BilL which severely 
jeopardizes it chances of sell- 
ing off the Devonport and 
Rosyth yards before the next 
election (Our Political Report- 
er writes). 

The amendment, moved by 
Lord Denning, former Master 
Of the Rolls, imposes a duty on 


the Secretary of State for 
Defence to consult the unions 
about the “legal, economic 
and social implications” of 
privatization. 

The unions intend to ex- 
ploit this to spin out talks 
beyond the deadline of April 6 

Yesterday, Government 
sources were dismissing the 
Lords vote as a “slight 
inconvenience." 


Motorway 
closed in 
gas lorry 
emergency 

A motorway was sealed off 
last night and fire engines 
were on stand-by daring a 
delicate operation to make 
safe a consignment of a highly 
inflammable chemical ga<f 
leaking from a tanker, which 
was isolated after 12 people 
were overcome by toxic fames. 

The M23 and A23 near 
Reigate, Surrey, were dosed 
while a toxic gas was vented 
from the tank, containing liq- 
uid ethyl mercaptan, which is 
used to give North Sea gas its 
smell, in a Dutch-owned 
Mercedes lorry. 

An expert flew to Britain 
from The Netherlands during 
the day to supervise the opera- 
tion and earlier, a team from 
BP Chemicals covered the 
tank with a plastic ding-foil 
type coating to prevent farther 
leaks. 

Oostvogeb Transport, of 
Achtmaai, said last night that 
Mr Frans Herengera, the driv- 
er, bad told them that about 
700 litres of the chemical 
remained in the tank and that 
the gas had leaked from a 
broken seaL 

The company said the four- 
year-old tony usually returned 
empty on the once-a-week nm 
from The Netherlands to the 
Fawley refinery near 
Southampton. 

On its return the lorry was 
pursued by police from 
Arundel, West Sussex, where 
the gas leak was first detected, 
to Reigate Hill, Surrey, near 
jnnetion 8 of the M25.

Inflation rate falls to 
lowest in 19 years 

By David Smith, Economics Correspondent 

The rate of inflation fell to cent or more by the end of the of 1 64.6p for a gallon of four- 


2.5 per cent last month, its 
lowest since December 1967. 
Helped by a reduction in 
mortgage rates, the cost of 
living actually fell in June 
compared with May. 

Lord Young of Graflham, 
the Secretary of State for 
Employment, said: “This is 
good news. Good news for the 
economy and good news for 
jobs. This is the best news of 
the summer. The rate of 
inflation has fallen for the 
sixth consecutive month and. 
at 2.5 per cent, is now lower 
than in any month for almost 
20 years.” 

The June inflation rate of 
2.5 percent compared with 2.8 
per cent in May and 5.7 per 
cent at the end of last year. In 
"June 1985, it was 7 per cent 

City economists believe fur- 
ther falls in the inflation rate 
will be difficult to achieve and 
that the June figure could be 
the low point. Inflation is 
expecied to edge up to 3 per 


year. 

The pound's weakness of 
the past few days could, if 
sustained, lead to higher im- 
port prices, and make further 
reductions in interest and 
mortgage rates difficult. Yes- 
terday, the pound fell by a cent 
to Si. 5062 and the sterling 
index dropped 0.3 to 74.6. 

In addition, buitdingsociety 
receipts are very weak. Last 
month, net receipts fell to 
£177 million, the lowest for 
nearly two years. 

The retail price index fell 
from 386.0 in May to 385.8 
last month, the fust monthly 
decline in the index since last 
September. 

The biggest single factor was 
the reduction in mortgage 
rates from 12 to 11 per cent 
from June 1 . There were smaH 
reductions, in the summer 
sales, for clothing, footwear 
and household durable goods. 
Eggs and tomatoes also fell 

But petrol increased by 3.ip 
a gallon to a national average

star, the first price rise for 
more than 12 months. There 
were also higher prices for 
fresh vegetables. Cigarette 
prices went up, and there were 
'further instalments of gas and 
electricity tariff increases. 

Telephone charges should, 
however, come down a little 
because under the terms of 
British Telecom's privatiza- 
tion, charges have to be set on 
the basis of the increase in the 
retail prices index in the 12 
months to June, less 3 percent- 
age points. 

On another measure of 
inflation, the tax and price 
index, inflation last month 
was even lower. This measure, 
which takes account of tax and 
national insurance changes, 
rose by 0.6 per cent in the 12 
months to June, the lowest 
increase on record, compared 
with 0.9 per cent in May. 

Lord Young said: “I hope 
that pa y negotiators on both 
sides will see that high pay 
rises are simply no longer 
needed to keep up with 
inflation". 

Mr Kenneth Edwards, dep- 
uty director general of the 
Confederation of British In- 
dustry. echoed this. “The 
continued fall in inflation 
offers British industry its best 
chance of winning new busi- 
ness and creating new jobs for 
many years,” he said. 

But Labour's employment 
spokesman, Mr John Prescott, 
said the Government’s strate- 
gy had failed. “Mrs Thatcher 
promised that low inflation 
would bring more jobs;” he 
said. “It is lime we were told 
when.” Comment, page 19 


Frigate 

inquiry 

chief 

resigns 


By Rodney Cowton 

Defence Correspondent 

Professor John CaMweft, 
who was appointed two weeks 
ago tohold an independent 
inquiry into the controversy 
over the Royal Navy's rejec- 
tion of the “short fat" hull 
form for its frigates, resigned 
yesterday before the inquiry 
could begin. 

He did so because of fears 
that bis impartiality might be 
challenged. 

The appointment of Profes- 
sor Caldwell, president of the 
Royal Institution of Naval 
Architects, to be chairman of 
the inquiry, was announced on 
June 25. 

Bnt within two days, it was 
being pointed out, and was 
exclusively reported in The 
Times, that he was a non- 
executive director of a subsid- 
iary of British Shipbuilders, 
one of the main parties to the 
dispute. 

Yesterday, in a written an- 
swer in the House of Lords, 
Lord Trefgarne, Minister of 
State for Defence Procure- 
ment, revealed that Professor 
Caldwell had now resigned 
from the inquiry. 

Lord Trefgarne said he had 
been satisfied that there would 
have been no conflict of inter- 
est and that Professor Cald- 
well would have brought a 
proper degree of impartiality, 
as well as exceptional profes- 
sional knowledge, to the 
inquiry. 

Bnt Professor Caldwell had 
■ felt there might have been 
some residual donbtabont his 
impartiality which con Id have 
undermined the authority of 
any report he produced. 

Professor Caldwell was not 
available for comment last 
night 

The Ministry of Defence 
will now have to seek another 
chairman, and it is possible 
that they will have to turn to a 
judge or Queen's Counsel, 
which was the original recom- 
mendation of a report pro- 
duced by Admiral of the Fleet 
Lord Hill-Norton, a former 
Chief of the Defence Staff, 
which prompted the setting up 
an independent inquiry. 

Lord HiB-Norton said last 
night that although he had no 
doubts about Professor 
Caldwell's impartiality, he 
had probably been wise to 
resign. 

It would be very difficult to 
find a naval architect to con- 
duct the inquiry, who had not 
been involved in the controver- 
sy, be said. 

He thought a judge or QC 
would be able to conduct an 
inquiry’ into even such a highly 
technical issue provided he 
was supported by a technical 
assessor. 


Two detained over 
killing of consul 

From Geoffrey Matthews, Bogota 


Two men have been de- 
tained two men in connection 
with the killing of MrGeoflrey 
Hutchinson, Britain's honor- 
ary consul in BarranquiUa, 
who was shot dead on Thurs- 
day night in what appears to 
have been a well planned cont- 
ract murder. He is to be buried 
today. 

Mr Hutchinson, aged 45, 
was killed while driving near 
the cathedra] where only four 
days earlier the Pope delivered 
an impassioned plea for an 
end to civil violence in 
Colombia. 

Witnesses said two youths 
on a motorcycle shot Mr 
Hutchinson three times at 
point-blank range before 
speeding away. 

There seems no basis for 
early speculation that Mr 
Hutchinson was the victim of 
a politically motivated mur- 


der by one of Colombia's 
guerrilla groups. The British 
Embassy in Bogota said he 
had received no threats and 
had no known enemies. 

The style of the murder has 
become common in Colombia 
in recent years. It originated in 
the nation's second biggest 
city, Medellin, often dubbed 
the “world’s cocaine capital". 
It is headquarters of 
Colombia’s drug barons, who 
the United States Drug En- 
forcement Agency claims are 
the brains and managers of 
production of cocaine in 
South America and its distri- 
bution in the US and Europe. 

There has been no sugges- 
tion that Mr Hutchinson, a 
Colombian citizen, was in- 
volved in drugs. He was a 
prosperous businessman in 
the city, and although the

Geldof to 
be knighted 
by Queen 

By Alan Hamilton 

The Queen will personally 
award his honorary knight- 
hood to Bob Geldof, the 
femine relief organizer, at an 
investiture at Buckingham 
Palace on July 24. 

Honorary knighthoods, a 
decoration reserved for non- 
British citizens, are generally 
presented by the Foreign Sec- 
retary. The Queen's decision 
to include Mr Geldof in a 
Palace investiture is seen as a 
mark of her high regard for his 
work. 

Buckingham Palace said 
last night that it was still 
awaiting Mr Geldofs accep- 
tance of the invitation. 

Mr Geldof, who is a citizen 
of the Irish Republic and 
therefore not entitled to a full 
knighthood, will have the 
decoration placed around his 
neck by the Queen.

Judge bans publication 
of extracts from 


ex-MI5 man’s book 


The Guardian and The Ob- 
server were banned yesterday 
from publishing revelations 
about MI5 contained in a 
book written by a former 
senior officer, Mr Peter 
Wright 

Mr Justice Millett ruled m 
the High Court that “The 
security service must be seen 
to be teak-proof". 

Giving judgement in open 
court after a three-day hearing 
in chambers, the judge added: 
“The appearance of confiden- 
tiality is essential for its 
effective functioning. Its 
members simply cannot be 
a] towed to write their 
memoirs." 

Mr Justice Millett contin- 
ued an injunction obtained by 
the Attorney General against 
the newspapers at an earlier 
date but limited its terms so 
that they can report proceed- 
ings in the Australian court 
where the British Government 
is trying to ban a book of Mr 
Wright's proposed memoirs. 


The judge dismissed an, 
application by the two news-’ 
papers to discharge the injunc- 
tion made against them by Mr 
Justice Macpheison on June 
27 after the publication of two 
articles alleging unlawful acts 
by security officers. 

The injunction banned the 
publication of information ob- 
tained by Mr Wright in con- 
nection with his work as a 
member of the security ser- 
vices. He retired in 1976. 

But Mr Justice Millett yes- 
terday described the original 
injunction as “far too wide". 

He said the newspapers 
could report information 
about the security services so 
long as it was not attributed to 
Mr Wright* The ban on Mr 
Wright’s revelations would 
continue for about eighteen 
months until after the trial in 
New South Wales, he said. 

The judge added: “Prior 
restraining of publication is a 
severe interference with the 
freedom of the Press but those 


Al-Fayed brothers win 
fight against Lonrho 


The wealthy Al-Fayed 
brothers won their fight in the 
High Court yesterday to stop 
further publication of allega- 
tions that they tried to bribe 
the Prime Minister and her 
son to help them to win their 
battle with Mr Tiny Rowland, 
of Lonrho, for control at . 
Harrods. 

The Observer, owned by 
Lonrho, carried out a “persis- 
tent and irresponsible journal- 
istic campaign against the 
brothers long after the public 
had ceased to have an 
interest", Mr Justice Mann 
said. 

He refused to grant iqjmic- 
tions because there was no 
evidence that the newspaper 
intended to repeat the allega- 
tions which it accepted were 
unjustifiable. 

Bat The Observer gave un- 
dertakings not to repeat the 


allegations without giving the 
brothers seven days' warning. 


The newspaper had pub-' 
fished 18 articles between 
March last year and last May 
concerning the background, 
wealth and resources of the 
brothers. 

The articles had alleged 
that the brothers had induced 
the Sultan of Brunei to give 
Mrs Margaret Thatcher a 
jewelled gold bracelet and to 
grant Mr Mark Thatcher a 
valuable braiding contract 

They also claimed that the 
brothers bad arranged a meet- 
ing hi Brunei between the 
Sultan, Mrs Thatcher and Mr 
Thatcher to induce the British 
Government to treat their offer

freedoms are not absolute. 

“They are subject to such 
restraint as are necessary in a 
democratic society in the in- 
terests of national security.” 

The Attorney General’s 
concern was not that The 
Observer and The Guardian 
were campaigning for an in- 
vestigation into allegations of 
- misconduct, but that the alle- 
gations were being made by a 
former senior member of the 
security services. 

That could be highly detri- 
mental to the public interest 

The judge said the damage 
that had already been done by 
the news that Mr Wright was 
planning to write bis memoirs 
could be undone only “if he 
was stopped and seen to be 
stopped . 

The judge heard evidence 
that Mr Wright’s allegations 
refer primarily to misconduct 
among officers during the 
1950s and 1960s when he 
worked for MI5 and had 
access to highly classified 
information, much of it still 
“highly sensitive”. 

Sir Robert Armstrong, advi- 
sor on the intelligence services 
to the Prime Minister, said ixT 
sworn evidence that publica- 
tion of any facts by Mr Wright 
based on information avail- 
able to him was likely to 
“seriously damage” the work 
of the intelligence services. 

The judge rejected the argu- 
ment put forward for the 
newspapers by Mr Anthony 
Lester, QC, that there was a 
“compelling public interest" 
at stake in the disclosure not 
merely of the allegations 
against M15 officers but also 
of the feet that they were 
disclosed by a former MI5 
officer. 

Mr Lester had submitted 
that if the injunction were 
continued and the Govern- 
ment succeeded in suppress- 
ing publication in this case, it 
could do so in any case where 
confidential information was 
involved.

Action on Education paper 
adjourned boycott attacked 


By Michael McCarthy 


By Tim Jones 


The High Court action in 
Which News International and 
related companies are seeking 
to curb alleged unlawful pick- 
eting outside Wapping and 
other offices and distribution 
centres for its newspapers was 
adjourned yesterday until 
T uesday to enable the judge to 
read documents relating to the 
case. 

Over the weekend and on 
Monday Mr .Justice Sluart- 
Smith will read more than 
1,200 pages of documents 
relating to the six-month dis- 
pute which began when print- 
ing workers were dismissed 
after they had embarked on 
strike action. 

Many of the documents 
relate to sworn affidavits from 
senior management and em- 
ployees of The Times, The 
Sunday Times , the Sun and 
News of the World which 
describe incidents of alleged 
intimidation and interference. 

Other documents, provided 
by the printing unions Sogat 
’82 and the National Graphi- 
cal Association, deny the alle- 
gations and seek to justify the 
demonstrations, marches and 
picketing that have taken 
place. 

News International, the five 


The decision by some La- 
bour-controlled education- au- 
thorities to withdraw ad- 
vertisements for teaching 
posts from The Times Educa- 
tional Supplement was at- 
tacked as disgraceful yesterday 
by Mr Harry Greenway, the 
senior member of the Com- 
mons Select Committee on 
Education. 

Twenty-two authorities are 
refusing to place advertise- 
ments until the dispute is 
resolved between News Inter- 
national. owner of the supple- 
ment, and printing unions 
over the company's move to 
Wapping, east London. 

Mr Greenway, Conserva- 
tive MP for Ealing North, said 
that parents had a right to 
have the best possible teachers 
recruited for their children's 
schools and it was not for local 
authorities to take that right 
away. 

Mr Greenway, a former 
deputy headmaster, said: 
“This decision is absolutely 
disgraceful and reprehensible. 
It is on a par with the attempts 
to withdraw The Times from 
libraries 

“Teachers look for jobs in 
The Times Educational Sup- 
plement and this is a tradition- 
al habit which will never be 


broken. The dangers of this 
boycott to teaching practice 
and policy are immense." 

The publisher of The Times 
supplements. Mr Ian Trafford, 
said: “It will be noticed that 
many of the authorities boy- 
cotting The Times Education- 
al Supplement are in inner 
cities which are precisely the 
areas where it is most difficult 
to get teachers to go. 

“We think it is highly 
regrettable and most im- 
proper." 

In spite of the boycotts the 
journal is attracting record 
levels of advertising, Mr 
Trafford said. 

The most recent derision to 
boycott thesupplemenu taken 
by the controlling Labour 
group in Hounslow, west Lon- 
don, may be challenged in the- 
courts. The leader of the 
Alliance group on the council,

In the High Court yester- 
day. Mr Anthony Grabiner, 
QC. for News International 
and related companies, spoke, 
of a victory won by working 
miners during the pit strike in 
support of the attempt to 
restrain the level of picketing. 

He said that in 1985 work- 
ing miners in South Wales had 
won a High Court ruling that 
intimidation by pickets was a 
civil law wrong and could be 
slopped by an injunction. 

He said that m law the 
pickets were interfering with 
foe company’s ability to per- 
form its contract with suppli- 
ers and customers and were 
also “highly intimidatory” to 
employees entering or leaving 
the plant at Wapping, east 
London.

Mr Douglas Hurd, the 
Home Secretary, said that Sir 
Kenneth had carefully exam- 
ined and analysed the matter 
of police deployment at the 
News International plant at 
Wapping, east London. 

“1 wish there was no need 
for this deployment at 
Wapping, which is a distrac- 
tion from the task of protect- 
ing Londoners from ordinary 
crime. But 1 do not think 
anyone could argue we could 
simply leave the situation 
there unpoliced," he said. 

Admitting that the past year 
had been the “most challen- 
ging” in the history of the 
Metropolitan Police, Mr Hurd 
announced that the Ministry 
of Defence was loaning the 
force 10 one-ton armoured 
Land Rovers for use in riots as 
a stop-gap measure while it 
awaited its own vehicles. 

Mr Hurd said that they 
would only be used in the 
event of “serious disorder" 
and were needed to provide 
“proper protection against 
firearms and sustained attack 
by petrol bombs". 

Mr John Wheeler, Conser- 
vative MP for Wesrminsier 
North, denied that the police 
were wasting time when they 
were despatched on public 
order duties. He said that the 
Labour Party and its support- 
ers lay behind many demon- 
strations in central London.

‘Howe must warn 
of consequences 9 


Mr Neil Kinnock, the leader 
of the Labour Party, appealed 
to the Commonwealth leaders 
yesterday not lo follow the 
example of Nigeria and Ghana 
and pull out of this month’s 
Commonwealth Games in 
Edinburgh. 

He urged them instead to. 
convince Mrs Margaret 
Thatcher of the consequences 
of refusing to impose full 
sanctions against South 
Africa. 

He wrote to the High Com- 
missioners in London this 
week emphasizing the impor- 
tance of the unity of the 
Commonwealth. 

Speaking at Newcastle-un- 
der-Lyme yesterday, he said: 
“1 would regret withdrawal 
from the Games. But I can 
completely understand their 
feelings." 

He added that Mr Leon 
Brittan, the former Conserva- 
tive Cabinet minister, was 
right to call on the Govern- 
ment to impose sanctions. 

Mr Kinnock said that even 
Mrs Thatcher’s claim that she 
deplored apartheid was “los- 
ing conviction” 

In Edinburgh, Mr Robert 
Maxwell, chairman of the 
Games, delivered a “hold 
firm" plea yesterday to any 
countries considering joining 
the boycott 

He said the decision by 
Nigeria and Ghana to boycott 
the Games in protest at British 
policy on South Africa “will 
do them no good at all”. 

He added: “These are not 
Mrs Thatcher’s Games. They 
are the Games of the British 
Commonwealth. Fifty nations 
are involved, and any leader 
or politician who tries to use 
these Games to secure points, 
political ones, is really scoring 


The following is an . extract 
from Mr Leon Britten’s 
speech in Horsham, Sussex, 
on Thursday: 

“The cynicism wifowhich 
many have greeted Sir Geof- 
frey Howe’s visit to Southern 
Africa this week is wholly 
unjustified. 

“The obstacles are obvious- 
ly enormous and attitudes are 
clearly entrenched. But Bri-

“Outside Southern Africa it 
is we who have most to lose ff 
that catastrophe should mat-

“We also have to face the 
feet that many people in this 
country are extremely reluc- 
tant for os to embark on 
coercive measures against 
South Africa. 

“Those who take this view 
are not supporters of apart- 
heid or friends of foe present 
South African Government. 
They simply do not believe 
that coercion works and cer- 
tainly not unless the measures 
taken are universally applied.

“The world must know of

Loyalists 


in surprise 


‘seizure’ 


of village 


By Richard Ford 

Tension , was rising in 
Northern Ireland last night 
after further sectarian rioting 
and the “seizure” of a village 
by up, to 4,000 militant 
“loyalists” who were drilled 
for an hour. 

The Rev Ian Paisley, along 
with his Democratic Unionist 
Party, took the security forces 
by surprise by bringing a 
cavalcade of- thousands of 
men to Hillsborough, Co 
Down, in a demonstration 
codenamed “Operation 
Alpha". 

Mr Nicholas Scott, parlia- 
mentary under-secretary of 
state at the .Northern Ireland 
Office, attempted to dismiss 
the operation as a “well- 
organized stunt”. . ; 

But the demonstration, in 
which the village was sealed 
off and some men appeared in 
paramilitary-style uniforms 
with balaclavas and armed 
with sticks and cudgels, has 
caused serious concern among 
senior police officers. 

The evident lack of intelli- 
gence about the operation and 
its effect on wilder elements in 
the loyalist community on the 
eve of today’s traditional Or- 
ange parades heightened fears 
that the province may plunge 
into more sectarian trouble. 

Throughout yesterday, se- 
nior police offices and leading 
Official Unionist politicians 
attempted to defuse a flash- 
point situation planned for 
Portadown today, when Or- 
angemen have threatened to 
defy a Royal Ulster Constabu- 
lary ban on their parade 
passing through a mainly Ro- 
man Catholic area. 

Mr Paisley’s demonstration 
at Hillsborough has strained 
to breaking point the. uneasy 
alliance of the Official and 
Democratic Unionist parties. 

Senior politicians arid offi- 
cials in the OUP were told 
nothing of the plan, and while 
they are united in their hostil- 
ity towards the Anglo-Irish 
Agreement, there is little the 
two parties now agree upon 
about tactics to get nd of it. 

The Alliance will be tested 
today, as will foe security 
forces, when thousands of 
Orangemen parade at 19 ven- 
ues throughout the north, 
commemorating the 296th an- 
niversary of the Battle of foe 
Boyne. .

Tax ‘bonus’ to 
companies in 
special zones 

By George Hill 


Companies In Enterprise 
Zones have enjoyed an unin- 
tended tax windfall of more 
than £70 million, a report 
from Parliament's Public Ac- 
counts Committee claimed 
yesterday. 

The zones, introduced in 
1980, were intended to encour- 
age new firms to move into 
areas of economic decline. The 
Government deliberately 
made no restrictions on tax 
inducements to new enter- 
prises. 

Rates exemptions alone to 
existing firms in the 23 enter- 
prise zones amounted to £70 
million. 

The MPs say .they are 
concerned at foe scale of 
oncovenanted benefits, and 
criticize “a lack of complete- 
ness and consistency” in ar- 
rangements to monitor the 
effects of the zones. 

“Special attention should be 
paid to establishing the ad- 
verse effects of enterprise 
zones on other areas”.

Labour Telecom plan 
‘is highway robbery’ 


By Onr Political Reporter 


Mr Norman Tebbit yester- 
day savaged as highway rob- 
bery Labour’s plans to take the 
recently privatized British 
Telecom into “social 
ownership”. 

• The Tory chairman showed 
no sign of bowing to criticism 
within his party of his abrasive 
style as he asserted that soda! 
ownership amounted to na- 
tionalization by another name 
and meant “theft and political 
control". 

He told party workers in 
Birmingham: “There’s noth- 
ing very social about Labour’s 
plans to rob British Telecom 
shareholders. 

“Mr Kinnock' and Mr 
Hattersley make highwaymen 
look like gentlemen. Not the 
cry of ‘your money or your 
life’, but as the robbed BT 
shareholders it would be "your 
money and your rights’.” 

Mr Tebbit said that the 
f .25 million shareholders in 
the company would suffer 
whether they opted to sell 
their shares at the original 
offer price of 130p or convert 
them into Labour bonds. Un- 
der state control, the 


was 


company’s profitability 
bound to fell sharply- 

He derided Labour’s pro- 
posal for a British investment 
bank as a “socialist zoo for 
lame ducks and state 
dinosaurs". 

Meanwhile, Mr Roy 
Hattersley, the shadow Chan- 
cellor, speaking in Cardiff, 
pledged a future Labour gov- 
ernment to reduce drastically 
the country’s “over-depen- 
dence on nuclear power” by 
boosting the coal industry. 

A freeze on building new 
atomic energy stations and a 
start to decommissioning foe 
-old Magnox' plants would be 
accompanied by increasing 
foe output from coal-fired 
stations and setting up new 
ones. 

• A letter yesterday from Mr 
Tebbit to foe 500,000 newly 
enfranchised British voters 
living and working abroad 
heralded foe Conservative 
Party’s drive to win support- 
ers among them as Mr Doug- 
las Hurd, the Home Secretary, 
announced the new voting 
rales were in effect.

Science report 


Smoking and drink clue to cataract 


By Thomson Prentice, Science Correspondent 


Cataract is one of foe most 
common causes of blindness 
and foe commonest reason for 
ophthalmic sargery. Resear- 
chers at Edinburgh University 
have found that it appears to 
be linked with several prevent- 
able causes, such as smoking 
and heavy drinking. 

A pilot study whkb began in 
1978 set out to consider many 
possible risk factors. Abont 
1,500 people; including cata- 
ract patients, were examined 
for evidence of factors and 

conditions apparently associ- 
ated with increased risk. - 

Abont 177 items of informa- 
tion were recorded for each 
individual, including occnjp- 


tion, medical history, and use 
of medical drugs, alcohol and 
tobacco. 

The study identified some 
medical and other conditions, 
various medical drugs and 
other factors that seem to 
increase foe likelihood of de- 
veloping cataract 

The “high risk" factors 
included excessive alcohol use 
and total abstinence from alco- 
hol. Among the “moderate 
risk" factors were smoking, 
cardiac disease, certain eye 

medications, and some medi- 

cations for nan-ophthalmic 
conditions. 

“Protective*’ associated fac- 
tors included caldmb and 


cholesterol, and occasional 
moderate alcohol intake. The 
study shows that cataract has 
multiple causes, takes time 
develop, and that the number 
of risk factors increases with 
age. 

The researchers say flat, 
once causes have been estab- 
lished, it will be possible to 
provide education on dire, 
'alcohol and tobacco for foe 
population. 

For the medical profession, 

there will be information on 

treatment carrying a risk of 
effects on the eyesight, and on 
the relative hazards or safety 
of medications used on condi- 
tions unrelated to the eye. 


A subsequent study, led by 
Mrs Ruth Cfayton, of the 
weraity’s genetics depart- 
ment, involve collabora- 
tion with foe departments of 
ophthalmology, statistics, and 
clinical medicine. It will pwm . 

jne abort 4300 people, indnd- 
mg patients and controls. 


The eyes of people suffering 
from some of the conditions 
shown to be significant will be 
examined, grouping flipm by 
tr eatm en t received. 


That will enable foe grasp 
of researchers to test its 
prediction that in the long 

tom one type of treatment £9 

safer for foe eyesight than 
another.

But pupils generally did worse

came second from bottom. 

A spokesman for the De-

The college claims that by 
1990 this would mean it 


on the fact that undergraduate 
courses at Birkbeck take four 
years instead ofthe usual three 
and taught postgraduate 
courses take two yean instead 
of one. 

Birkbeck said yesterday that 
the additional £600.000 was 
“merely a palliative” consti- 
tuting little more than a | 


confused or drowsy strangers 
as a result of what the relatives 
saw as pointless or degrading 
over-treatment,” said Dr 
Wilkes, of St Lake’s nursing 
home in Sheffield. 

Patients such as those with 
advanced cancer needed to feel 
actively concerned in their 
management, rather than 
helpless prisoners, but almost 
a third of dying patients had 
“little idea of their real 
situation.” 

A third of doctors were 
unwilling to entrust to capable 
and experienced nursing col- 
leagues honest discussions 
with the patients.

reaved relatives showed that a

“The UGC has. disregarded yesterday’s letter it revised

But it said it would retain its

fact that students paid their 
own fees and maintenance 
costs. 

In the final paragraph ofthe 
UGC letter. Sir Peter Swinner- 
ton-Dyer, chairman, suggest- 
ed that Birkbeck had been too 
lavishly funded compared 
with other institutions. “Other 
universities find it cost-effec- 
tive to share resources be- 
tween part-time and full-time 
students; and we see no reason 
why London should not go 


courses — one half the level of substantially further in this 


a full-time postgraduate. 
These calculations are based 


direction than it has so far 
done." 


“But the relatives found 
fault — sometimes with bitter 
criticism and great resent- 
ment — with both GP and 
hospital too often for oar 
comfort." The GP in 16 per 
cent of cases did not seem 
interested or did not visit, 
except on demand. Hospitals 
were criticized in a quarter of 
cases. 

Hospices for the dying were 
not the answer, he said, be- 
cause they looked after only 
5 per cent to 10 per cent of 
deaths. Large-scale training 
was required and in some 
areas was well under way.

A boy aged 1 2 and his friend 
were found guilty at Newcastle 
Crown Court yesterday of a 
“penny for the Guy” murder 
of a crippled widow. 

Billy Waugh, of Sherbum 
Grove, HougbtoD-le-Spring. 
Tyne and Wear, who was aged 
1 1 at foe time of the killing, 
wept as Mr Justice Owen 
sentenced him to be detained 
“during her Majesty’s 
pleasure." 

The jury returned a unani- 
mous verdict of guilty on 
Ashley King, aged 22. de- 
scribed as of below average 
intelligence. King was sen- 
tenced to life imprisonment. 

Both denied murdering Mrs 
Peggy Greenwood, aged 58, at ■ 
her home in Abbey Drive, 
Houghton, last November. 
The jury found them not 
guilty of a jpint charge of 
robbing Mrs Greenwood of 
£ 270 . 

They tricked their way into 
her house by posing as Guy

Police shooting 


Cleared officer back on beat 


In an incident reminiscent 
of a scene in foe film. The

the severed head of a horse 
was thrown through the front 
door of a Conservative 
councillor.

on Newcastle City Council, in 
Jedburgh Cose. Newcastle. 
Police are investigating. 


By Craig Seton 

The police marksman who 
shot dead John Sbonhouse. 
aged five, is likely io escape 
any disciplinary charges and 
will return to duty as a 
community beat policeman 
on Tuesday, less than two 
weeks after he was cleared of 
foe boy’s manslaughter. 


Force morale 
‘still high’ 


Morale in the Greater Man- 
chester police force is still 
high in spite of the Stalker 
affair, Mr James Anderton. 
the Chief Constable, said 


Mr Geoffrey Dear.' Chief 


Constable of West Midlands, 
said yesterday that there had 
been a “huge volume” of 
support for Police Constable 
Brian Chester, aged 35, from 
the tough council housing 
estate in WillenhalL Coventry, 
where he will return to foe 
beaL 

Local schools which foe 
officer regularly visited before 
the shooting last August had 
been planning a “banners and 
bunting" welcome for PC 
Chester. 

But foe chief constable ad- 
mitted that West Midlands 
police had an “unfortunate 
bad luck record" of incidents 
involving firearms. 

He announced that he in- 
tended to take the bold step of 
setting up a specialist firearms 
squad on permanent stand-by 
for armed duties. 

The elite squad would re- 
place “part-time” marksmen 
such as PC Chester who 
carried out normal policing 
duties but were also on call tor 


His comments came after a 
meeting with 30 senior officers 
in Manchester in which foe 
position of Mr John Stalker, 
the depnty chief constable, 
was discussed “in so for as it 
was proper to do so”. 

Sources close to the force 
have suggested that morale is 
low because of foe Stalker 
affair. 

However, Mr Anderton said 
that be was “heartened to 
receive confirmation of my 
views that morale in the force 
remained at a high level". 

Mr Stalker, aged 47, has 
been suspended on fall pay for 
alleged associations with 
“known criminals”, charges 
that he strenuously denies. 


firearms operations. 

He said PC Chester bad 
ceased to be a member of foe 
“top squad” of foe West 
Midlands tactical firearms 
unit at the time of his suspen- 
sion on full pay last year and 
added: “I am sure he wil not 


want to return to fop firearms 
squad”. 

Mr Dear said in his first 
public comment on the Ches- 
ter case: “It is probable that 
there will be no disciplinary 
proceedings against PC Ches- 
ter. A jury ar Stafford Crown 
Court decided unanimously 
that, although his gun went 
off. there was no degree of 
neglect.” 

Mr Dear said it had still not 
been decided whether disci- 
plinary proceedings would be 
taken against other officers 
involved in foe armed police 
raid on foe Birmingham mai- 
sonette of John Shorfoouse’s 
parents, during which foe boy 
was shot through the heart. 

Mr Dear sai± “Patently we 
cannot sit tack and rest on our 
laurels when we have had an 
incident like a five-year-old 
boy being killed and say there 
is nothing more to be done. 

“No one should think we 
are dealing with it flippantly 
and saying that because PC 
Chester was acquitted we 
should ignore it, 

“But you have to recognize 
that guns are by definition 
highly dangerous and, no mat- 
ter how much you invest in 
training, deployment and se- 
lection, there is still foe chance 
that something will go 
wrong.” 


Killing may be 
by strangler 


Detectives fear that a stran- 
gler who preys on old people 
as they sleep may have moved 
from south to north London. 

They are looking into the 
death of William Carman, 
aged 82, who was found 
strangled in bed at his council 
flat in Clephane Road. Isling- 
ton, north London, on 
Tuesday. 

Scotland Yard said that 
there were similarities to four 
deaths in Stockwell, south 
London, last month.

after admitting that he had 
neglected his own tax affairs, 
the London Bankruptcy Court 
was told yesterday. 

Adrian David Stark, aged

London, was said to have 
suffered “gargantuan losses.” 

From holding £600,000 In 
shares in the 1970s, he 
plunged £528,773 into debt 
when he was made bankrupt in 
1984. He now owes £256.000. 

Mr D E Dolman, the Offi- 
cial Receiver, said that Mr 
Stark, a bachelor, was hope* 
lessly insolvent by 1974. 

Mr Stark, who was applying 
for discharge from bankruptcy 
in order to re-apply for ro em- 
bership of the Institute of 
Chartered Accountants, now 
earns £21,000 a year 

He was granted a discharge 
oo condition that he paid bock

US agrees on civilian 
workers to replace 
Spain air base troops 


From Richard Wigg 
Madrid 

* The United Slates has 
agreed to substitute a civilian 
labour force for about 10 per 
cent of its service personnel at 
the Torrejon airbase 15 miles 
east of the Spanish capital 

The Americans made this 
gesture at the end of the first 
round of negotiations on troop 
reductions sought by Spain’s 
Socialist Government which 
went on here until late Thurs- 
day night. 

About 450 civilians wul be 
employed, most of them ex- 
pected to be Spaniards. 

The two sides agreed after 
the first round of talks to 
return to the negotiating table 
in Washington in early 
October. 

The American delegation, 
headed by Mr Thomas Co- 
ders, the United States Am- 
bassador soon to leave 
'Madrid, is anxious to avoid 
creating any precedent in the 
negotiations over its four 
main bases on Spanish soil

they will be both lengthy and 
complicated. 

The Spanish Government 
has talked of securing a big run 
down of US forces at Torrejon 
and at the Saragossa air base 
where there are important 
training facilities used not 
only by the Americans but 
also by other Nato allies. 

Torrejon, because of its 
proximity to Madrid, has 
always been a chief target for 
left-wing protest marches 
against US bases in Spain. 

The US has 80 FI 6 tactical 
operation fighters stationed at 
Torrejon which, with its long 
runway, also offers important 


main bases on Spanish soil staging facilities for big trans-

Foreign Minister, as the nego- 
tiations began. He forecasts

After two rounds of ex- 
tremely cautious preliminary 
talks, Washington agreed last 
December to negotiations on

"adjustment” in troop 
strengths and installations to

the Prime Minister, win the 
referendum last March on 
Spain's continued member- !

Essentially as a “carrot” to ; 
help obtain a “yes” verdict, 
the Madrid Government in 
the referendum question pro- 
mised to secure a “progressive 
reduction” of the US military 
presence, and 52 per cent of 
the voters endorsed that. 

Sefior Gonzalez has told the 
Americans a reduction is fea- 
sible because of the modern- 
ization of Spain's armed 
forces, permitting them to 
substitute for the Americans,

This was only the initial 
round of a negotiating process

when the present bilateral 
defence agreement expires. 

The two other main US 
bases in Spain are the com- 
bined naval and air base at 
Rota, near Cadiz, which the 
Spanish also consider crucial 
for their own strategic defence 
interests, and the Moron air 
base near Seville. The Foreign 
Minister on Thursday also 
spoke of achieving some re- 
ductions at these bases as well.

Government guerrillas. 

He accused mem bers of the

Thousands of Chinese gath-

and fee frigate HMS Amazon,

Shanghai since 1980. 

The ships are on an around- 
fee-world goodwill tour dub- 
bed “Global 86” feat began in 
April and is scheduled to 


finish in November. The trip 
is designed to promote British 
naval presence around the 
world in a friendly way. 

Tlx: Manchester docked in 
Shanghai at 12:40 pm under 
her own power while fee 
Amazon used a tug to dock. 
Police boats had halted some 
50 barges and a dozen ships on 
fee river so feat the British 
vessels could tie up. 

The visit marks fee' first 
lime that Nato-member naval 
vessels capable of carrying 
nuclear weapons have come to 
China since a planned US 
warship visit to Shanghai was 
suspended in April 1985. 

At feat time Mr Hu 
Yaobang, fee Chinese Com- 


munist Party General Secre- 
tary, said that he had been 
assured by US officials that 
their vessels would not be 
carrying nuclear weapons. 

The policy of both fee US 
and British naries is neither to 
confirm nor deny fee presence 
of nuclear weapons on board 
their vessels. 

A US official in Shanghai 
said this week that Britain's 
China port call if successful 
could pave fee way for a US 
visit “in fee near future”. The 
official declined to elaborate 
on his remarks, but said that 
negotiations between the US 
and China concerning the visit 
have never been, formally 
cancelled.

Secondly (he said) we expect 
to receive a significant share of 
the extra provision for the 
structural foods — well in excess 
of our VAT share.

sent for trial here on charges 
that he murdered his wife mid .

A Rangoon court yesterday

If convicted he could face a

But senior officials of fee 
ruling Sandinista Front have 
rejected ^calls' for repressive

Sandinista party activists

battle, against imperialism" 
and feat those alrrady punish- 
ed for their activities were not

ties known as the Democratic

appealing this week for mea- 
sures against the press and fee 
Church to be rescinded. 

They very judiciously stated 
support for fee principle of 
non-intervention and .mildly 
criticized the Contra aid in a 
document reiterating their call 
for a ceasefire in the war, an 
end to the state of emergency 
and new general elections.

Those advocating such a 
move include Admiral John 
Poindexter, the National Se- 
curity Adviser, and Mr 
.George Shultz, the Secretary 
■of State. They clearly believe 
that US policy is perceived as 
muddled, and inconsistent,

- The aim of the speech 
would be to prod President 
Botha into negotiations with 
.black Africans and a peaceful 
settlement of racial strife. It 
would demonstrate that Mr 
Reagan personally, and not 
-just US diplomats, is commit- 
ted to change in South Africa.

whose consequences were in- 
calculable and possibly dan- 
gerous. 

However, he said the situa- 
tion in South Africa had 
changed in the past few 
months, and the Administra- 
tion had not forever ruled out 
pressure such as sanctions. 

South Africa's decision to 
defy world opinion, the state 
of emergency and the cross- 
border raids had induced a 
“mood of siege politics”, Mr 
Crocker said. The country was 
striking a posture of being 
ready to go it alone and suffer 
the consequences. 

Washington is clearly eager 
to dampen expectations both 
here and in black Africa that it 
can force the Botha Govern- 
ment to change tack. Mr 
Crocker insisted that US influ- 
ence was “at the margins”, 
though this would be used 
nevertheless. 

It was important for all 
South Africans to understand 
the US position. But Washing- 
ton would not publicize its 


he said. 

Mr Crocker gave a warning 
there was a lot of “timber” in 
South Africa ready for the 
Soviet Union to set ablaze, but 
he was categorical in blaming 
apartheid, not Moscow, for 
the crisis in the country. 

The US has not ruled out 
the idea of sending a special 
envoy, as suggested by some 
senators, but it is waiting to 
see the outcome of the mission 
to southern Africa of Sir 
Geoffrey Howe, the Foreign 
Secretary. . 

The Administration s stated 
goals at present appear mod- 
est the rekindling of black- 
white dialogue, an end to 
violence and more reforms 
leading to the dismantling of 
apartheid. They may be too 
modest for Congress, which 
does not accept the contention 
that US influence in the region 
is limited. 

Mr Shultz will testify to the 
powerful Senate Foreign Rela- 
tions Committee later this 
month. Mr Reagan may yet 
find that be has publicly to 
address the South Africa issue 
after all.

Sanctions 
at issue 
in Canada 

From John Best 
Ottawa 
Tomorrow’s meeting be- 
tween Mrs Margaret Thatcher 
and Mr Brian Mulroney, the 
Canadian Prime Minister, 
seems certain to be dominated 
by the problem of South 
Africa. 

The meeting will cap a busy 
weekend in Canada for Mrs 
Thatcher, who flew there from 
London last night. 

Canadian news media in 
recent days have carried a' 
number of interviews with 
Mrs Thatcher, in which she 
has maintained her opposition 
to sanctions. 

Mr Mulroney, who sees 
himself as a possible mediator 
between Britain and African 
Commonwealth states clam- 
oring for sanctions, may try to 
gel Mrs Thatcher to moderate 
her position. 

She is to meet Mr Mulroney 
at Mirabel Airport, ouiside 
Montreal, on her way back to 
Britain from Vancouver, Brit- 
ish Colombia, where today she 
attends British Day at Expo

As well as officiating at

M urder of British consul 

Concern rises over security 

. ...... . i i.„ i_ .u. l. „nc ihp FVnuTv Hie 


By Nicholas Beeston 
The murder of a British 
honorary consul in Colombia 
on Thursday has revived con- 
cern about the threat of terror- 
ism to diplomats abroad, and 
in particular the vulnerability 
of honorary consuls. 

Although the motives for 
Mr Geoffrey Hutchinson's as- 
sassination by two unidenti- 
fied gunmen in the port of 
Barranquilla are not dear, the 
Foreign Office said yesterday 
the latest attack added to a 
“regrettable record of murd- 
ers” of diplomatic staff. 

A relative of Mr Hutchin- 
son’s in Britain said: “He was 
not involved in any local pol- 
itics and he was simply run- 
ning a family import business 
established by his late father. 

“When I heard the news, 
my initial reaction was that he 
had been killed just because he 
was the British consul.” he 

said. _ 

A Foreign Office spokes- 
man said that although there 
was no recent history of 
attacks against honorary con- 
suls, their safety is of particu- 
lar concern because they are 
scattered around the world, 
often in remote areas. 


With recent cut-backs in the 
number of diplomatic staff 
sent abroad, the growing trend 
has been to appoint unpaid 
honorary consuls in regions 
with only small British inter- 
ests. 

Honorary consuls are often 
resident British businessmen 
based in large towns and cities 
who cany out basic consular 
services and receive an hono- 
rarium of £600. 

Although full-time diplo- 
matic staff have frequently 
come under attack from ter- 
rorists, provisions for their 
safety are met by security 
personnel assigned to embas- 
sies overseas. 

No such measures exist to 
protect honorary consuls, who 
by their very nature have close 
contact with the local commu- 
nity and are based in remote 
regions. 

There is a fear that they may 
become easy prey for terror- 
ists, as Graham Greene de- 
scribed in his novel. The 
Honorary Consul, about a 
British businessman and hon- 
orary consul, who ' is kid- 
napped by guerrillas ULSouth 
America. 

The last British diplomat to 


be killed was the Deputy High 
Commissioner in Bombay, 
Mr Percy Norris, who was as- 
sassinated in 1984 by a group 
linked to the Palestinian ter- 
rorist leader Abu NidaL 
He was the seventh British 
diplomat to be attacked by ter- 
rorists and the fourth to die 
since 1970. The list of attacks 
is: 

1984: Mr Kenneth Whitty, as- 
sistant cultural attache in Ath- 
ens. shot by the Revolutionary 
Organization for Socialist 
Muslims. 

1978: Sir Richard Sykes, Am- 
bassador to the Netherlands, 
shot dead by Irish gunmen. 
1976: Mr Christopher Ewart- 
Biggs killed by an IRA car 
bomb in Dublin. 

1973: Mrs Nora Murray, a 
member of the embassy staff 
in Washington, whose hand 
was blown off by a letter- 
bomb. _ 

1971: Mr (now Sir) Geoffrey 
Jackson, Ambassador to Uru- 
guay, held for 245 days after 
being kidnapped by guerrillas. 
1970 : Mr James Cross, trade 
. commissioner in Montreal, 
kidnapped by Quebec separat- 
ists and released unharmed.

Carter to get apology 


Harare - Mr Jimmy Carter, 
the former American presi- 
dent, who walked out of a 
reception in Harare last week 
when a Zimbabwean Cabinet 
Minister criticized his coun- 
try, can expect a written 
apology (Jan Raath writes). 

The US State Department 
said this week it was 
“reviewing" its aid to Zimba- 
bwe because of the incident 

Mr Robert Mugabe, the 
prime Minister, told journal- 
ists on Thursday that the 
speech at the reception marr- 


ing America's Independence 
Day had been “inappro- 
priate”. The Foreign Minister 
would be writing soon to 
apologize for “any inconve- 
nience or embarrassment”. 

But Zimbabwe would not 
stop attacking the Reagan 
Administration for its failure 
to act against South Africa; 
nor would it be “blackmailed” 
by threats of aid cuts. 

“We are not the weak 
country down on its knees that 
says 'mea culpa, mea maxima 
culpa Mr Mugabe said. 


Mrs Thatcher’s discussions 
with Mr Mulroney at Mirabel 
tomorrow will be a prelude to 
a special summit of seven 
Commonwealth leaders in 
London on August 3-5 
planned to consider means of 
putting pressure on South 
Africa. 

Mr Mulroney, with Mr Bob 
Hawke, the Australian Prime; 
Minister, and some other 
leaders, has been looking for 
ways to head off a confronta- 
tion in London between Mrs 
Thatcher and African leaders. 

Canada has said it may 
break off trade and diplomatic 
relations with Pretoria with- 
out a move to dismantle 
apartheid. A report this week 
said that Mr Mulroney was 
preparing to push for an early 
emergency meeting of all 49 
Commonwealth members, 
possibly in Canada, if efforts 
to resolve the rift over sanc- 
tions failed. The report was 
denied by an official 
spokesman. 


Manila - President Aquino 
declared a state of emergency 
in the northern Philippines 
provinces struck by a typhoon 
that left more than 70 people 
dead and thousands homeless 
(Keith Dalton writes). 

She announced the release 
of $550,000 (£362,000) . for 
relief services during a visit to 
hundreds of displaced resi- 
dents sheltering in a suburban 
church in Manila. 

“The damage to property 
has been extensive and the 
loss of lives has made this 
calamity a tragedy as well,” 
she said while relief agencies 
prepared to airlift food to 
flooded northern towns isolat- 
ed by damaged roads and de- 
stroyed bridges. 

The state of emergency 
gives police and military res- 
cue units the right to seize 
stockpiles of essential goods 
for distribution to needy 
families.

^^"Tayaral! Tayaral!” (“Air- 
craft, aircraft") shouted some- 
one near a group of unarmed 
fighters who were inspecting 
the ruins of a house struck by 
Israeli rockets. 

Guerrillas, onlookers and 
reporters darted for cover far 
away from tbe house until it 
became evident that there was 
no threat from tbe sky. The 
fighters returned near the 
house a few minutes later, 
some of them giggling nerv- 
ously. 

“They win come back, may- 
be this afternoon,” said one 
guerrilla. “We are used to it 
... we are prepared.” 

On Thursday, Israeli heli- 
copter gunships flying in from 
the sea destroyed installations 
of three Palestinian guerrilla 
organizations hours after two 
Israeli soldiers were killed on 
the coast of south Lebanon 
during a rare joint infiltration 
attempt by Palestinian guerril- 
las and pro-Syrian Lebanese 
fighters. 

It was unclear whether some 
of the fire came from Israeli 
gunboats boats reportedly 
seen by Sidon residents short- 
ly before the attack. 

“Four helicopters fired at 
least 18 rockets,” said Abu 
Nizar, the local spokesman for 
the Palestine Straggle Front, 
which lost its offices during 
tbe ten-minute raid at dusk. 

An amm unition and fuel 

depot belonging ro the Marxist 

Democratic Front for the 
Liberation of Palestine was 
blown up along with an office 
of the Fatah Uprising group 
led by Saeed Mousa. 


The casualty toll was low 
considering that the camp has 
a registered refugee popula- 
tion of 28,705 inhabitants, 
according to United Nations 
records. 

The Israelis appanmtly 
struck only guerrilla positions 
— and they did it accurately, 
although some other bu ildin gs 
and cars were also damag ed 
The PSFs two-storey of- 
fices were devastated by con- 
centrated fire and it appeared 
as if at least one rocket had 
gone through a window in the 
blackened top floor. A sentry 
post was reduced to a mound 
of rubble, a brown wooden 
chai r trapped amid blasted 
sandbags, but there was no 
trace of blood. 

The air attack was expected. 
Every guerrilla in Lebanon 
knows that all at t a ck s 
Israel are inevitably followed 
by retaliatory raids. After the 
infiltration attempt early on 
Thursday, the guerrillas had 
taken the ritual precaution of 
removing their men. 

“We knew they would 
come,” said Abu Nizar, a 
dean -shaven man in his thir- 
ties, who said little about the 
guerrillas' own security mea- 
sures. “After the operation (in 
the south) we all went home,” 
he said smiling. 

Abu Nizar emphasized that 
Israel’s retaliatory attack 
would not deter new guerrilla 
activity. On the contrary, he 
said, the infiltration attempt - 
the most daring Palestinian 
guerrilla operation in months 
- was bound to encourage 
more joint attacks.

Croquet .Association continues to 
expand, with 33 new clubs started 
last year and 14 so far this year. 
Croquet, a break-building game, is 
often compared with snooker — 
but croquet people like to point 
out that a snooker player, in 
making a maximum 147 break, 
plays only 36 shots. A croquet 
player. 1 learn, will regularly make 
breaks of 60 or more shots — and 
the maximum possible break com- 
prises 91 shots. Meanwhile, some 
genius has invented a new game 
that combines pool with croquet, 
and called it Poolo. It is played on 
a 6 ft by 10 ft carpet that stands on 
a small platform with six pockets, 
and you bifT balls about with a 
mallet. The makers say the surface 
can cope with spilt beer and ice-

who went to Kempton Park on 
June 25 to watch the racing from 
the Silver Ring. It was closed and. 
instead of paying £2.50. he had the 
choice of either paying £6 for a 
seat in the grandstand or going 
home. The Silver Ring itself had 
been taken over for a corporate 
thrash by 2.000 people who work 
for the meeting’s sponsor. RacaL 
The course authorities had made 
some effort on behalf of regular 
Silver Ring patrons by issuing £3 
vouchers at the previous meeting. 
They also issued a press release 
saying that the Silver Ring would 
be closed, and were surprised 
when neither of the racing dailies 
printed the news. 77tc fact re-

BARRY FANTONI 



Released from the suffocating 
restraints of Cabinet membership, 
Leon Britan has articulated the 
view of many of his ministerial 
and backbench colleagues in his 
speech on South Africa. It is not 
just his loyalty to Sir Geoffrey 
Howe which has prompted his 
antidpation of the Foreign 
Secretary’s dilemma; loyalty to the 
liberal tradition of the Conser- 
vative Party, is equally a pari of 
his welcome message. 

Post-war Conservatism, articu- 
lated through “the wind of 
change", demands no less than a 
marriage between practical poli- 
tics and humanitarian concern. 
Thus Leon Brittan called not just 
for "sanctions" as a media hype, 
but for action of some sort in 
concerted alliance with our part- 
ners in the EEC and our friends in 
the Commonwealth. 

I have neither spoken to Leon 
Brittan, nor can I guess whether 
my assessment of his motive is 
correct, but his loyalty to Geoffrey 
Howe is also to the Foreign 


In 1849 Karl Marx came to live in 
England, and before long the 
British Museum was his habitual 
place of work. There he may quite 
often have noticed another mature 
student, nearly twenty years bis 
senior, who was a trustee of the 
Museum and one of the great 
•“lines in literature at the time: 

.omas Babington Macaulay. 

Marx was a figure of some 
notoriety among politically 
minded Continentals, the Com- 
munist Manifesto having ap- 
peared in 1848. But in Britain be 
was virtually unknown, as he was 
to remain until some years after 
his death in 1883. (The brief 
obituary in The Times took the 
form of a message from the 
paper's Paris correspondent, and 
was based on reports in the French 
socialist press). 

Macaulay had been a celebrity 
since be came down from Cam- 
bridge. He became famous over- 
night when the Edinburgh Review 
published his essay on Milton in 
August 1825. The first collection 
of his essays had a six-figure rale 
within a generation, as did his 
Lays of Ancient Rome. The first 
two volumes of his History oi 
England went through five edi- 
tions in as many months, and later 
volumes of the (unfinished) work 
sold equally well, if not better. No 
previous historian had reached 
such a vast public. 

When he died in 1859 his 
reputation continued to grow. In 
1864 a "people's edition" of the 
History appeared, and within the 
next four decades the work was 
translated into French (by Gui- 
zot), Russian. German. Czech, 
Danish. Dutch. Finnish. Greek, 
Hungarian. Polish and Spanish. 
There were also innumerable edi- 
tions of his . essays, poems, 
speeches, and other miscellaneous 
works. 

Mara was a more prolific writer 
than Macaulay, not because he 
wrote more easily, but because his 
life was largely devoted to study 
and theoretical exposition, where- 
as much of Macaulay's was di- 
vided between literature and 
politics. Yet it was a long time 
before Mara’s writings achieved 
anything like the impact of 
Macaulay's. Before Das Kapital 
bis books were (Isaiah Beilin tells 
us) "passed over in silence even in 
German-speaking countries": and 
Das Kapital itself had a more 
limited readership than Mac- 
aulay’s History until, with the 
Russian revolution, it acquired 
biblical status. 

First published in German, h 
also appeared in French, Russian 
and Italian editions during Marx's 
lifetime, though it did not appear 
in English until four years after his 
death. But most of Mara's works 
remained out of print until the 
1920s. when the pious tads of 
reproducing the entire canon was 
begun by the Marx-Engels-Lenin 
Institute in Berlin. After Hitler 
came to power the Institute for 
Marxism-Leninism in Moscow 
(already working in parallel with 
the German institute) became the 
unrivalled source for the new 
scriptures, and under its inspira- 
tion they have flooded the world 
in almost every language, includ- 
ing the multi-volume English 
edition translated by Lawrence 
and WisharL 

While Mara's stock has been 
rising, Macaulay's has slumped. 
For more than half a century there 
have been very few new editions 
of his work, and very little has 
been written about him. The 
beautiful illustrated six-volume 
set of the History, edited by Sir 
Charles Firth and published by 
Macmillan in 1913. has long been 
out of print Today the History can 
be obtained first-hand only in a 
badly printed three-volume 
Everyman edition, or in Penguin's

Secretary's deep concern for his 
follow men, appreciated fry those 
who know him, political friends 
and opponents alike. It is an 
understandable wish to ensure 
that he is not sent up the creek 
without a paddle and then brought 
home without a canoe. The double 
mission, first to the front-tine 
states, and soon to South Africa 
itself, might almost be labelled 
"mission impossible”. It is with an 
eye on his eventual return from 
the second stage that caused Leon 
Brittau to make his speech. 

What fete awaits Geoffrey 
Howe if he fells to end apartheid 
"at a stroke’’? Already the 
Commonwealth, agreeing to the 
establishment of the Eminent 
Piersons Group, awaits its next 
turn. Now foe EEC at Mrs 
Thatcher’s behest, awaits events. 

The Foreign Office is the next in 
line to have its views tested 
against the unyielding reality of 


Pretoria and foe equally unyield- 
ing refusal of the Prime Minister 
to be bounced into taking action 
which she believes to be futile. 
Those of us in foe Conservative 
Party who support the gov- 
ernment's stated policy of seeking 
fundamental change in South 
Africa doubt the wisdom of what 
we see as the two extremes of 
policy, namely sanctions at any 
cost or no sanctions at any cost 
The Prime Minister surely put 
an important emphasis on the 
point that sanctions would most 
.likely harm those we are trying to 
help. If those who lose noopportu- 
nity to castigate her would mo- 
mentarily stop and listen to what 
they themselves are saying they 
would recognize the contradiction 
in their own words. I£ as they 
proclaim, she is Botha's only 
friend, then she, above all others, 
is likely to be listened to and 
heeded. That justifies the Foreign 
Secretary’s mission.

abridged version edited by Hugh 
Trevor-Roper. 

As for the essays, they too (or 
most of (hem) are published in 
hardback by Everyman. But there 
is no paperback edition of them at 
all This must be regarded as one 
of foe strangest and most scan- 
dalous omissions in contemporary 
publishing. Few. if any, of foe 
hundreds of historical works that 
appear in paperback every year are 
of remote comparable merit. Most 
are pathetically inferior. 

Of all Macaulay's works, his 
biographical essays are the most 
brilliant and compulsively read- 
able. For many in my genera- 
tion — as in my father’s, grand- 
father's and great-grandfather's — 
they provided the first thrilling 
introduction to history. One may 
smile at foe author's remark (in 
the essay on Clive) that "every 
schoolboy knows who imprisoned 
Montezuma, and who strangled 
Atahualpa". Even Victorian 
schoolchildren were hardly up to 
that standard. But one almost has 
to weep when faced with the feet 
that, today, most even of those 
doing History A-levels are un- 
likely to have read Macaulay's 
essays. 

The stupendous dissemination 




of Marx's works, and foe shameful 
neglect of Macaulay's, have little 
to do with the literary merits of 
either man. Marx was. indeed, 
capable of writing very power- 
fully. Edmund Wilson (no ideo- 
logical disciple) describes him as 
"one of foe great masters of satire” 
and "certainly foe greatest ironist 
since Swift": compliments which, 
though perhaps exaggerated, can- 
not be dismissed as absurd. But 
however good some of Mara's 
writing may be, large parts of it are 
unbearably tedious and turgid. 
Macaulay's writing, on foe other 
hand is always clear and seldom, if 
ever, boring. 

No doubt Marx had the more 
original mind, and in some re- 
spects a wider historical range. 
Macaulay does not propound a 
new theory of history or take 
much interest in the economic 
side of human affairs. But foe 
novelty of a theory is surely less 
important than whether or not it is 
true: and. if Marx shows more 
vision than Macaulay about the 
role of economics in history. 
Macaulay shows more under- 
standing in other ways. 

Moreover, some of foe faults 
imputed to Macaulay — not least 
by Marx himself — are more justly 


The truth, however, is that those 
in charge in Pretoria have long 
since ceased to listen to anyone 
whose views they do not share. 

They will neither like nor heed the 

message t ha t Geoffrey Howe 
brings from foe EEC 12. Brittan 
knows this only too weft; he 
foresees the pitfells feeing the 
Foreign Secretary when he re- 
turns. What nobody knows is 
where we shall go from there. _ 
The perception of the Prime 
Minister’s view is foal with her in 
charge we may not go too far. We 
must go somewhere, and Leon 
Brittan wants to ensure that the 
way towards further action against 
foe apartheid regime is not 
blocked by total intransigence. 
The prospect ofGeoffrey Howe’s 
bead being banged against Mar- 
garet Thatcher’s perceived brick 
wall is bad for heads, and Leon 
Brittan is a friend of Geoffrey 
Howe. That, 1 believe, is why he 
made foe speech.

attributable to Mara. Mara had 
the nerve to describe Macaulay as 
"a systematic falsifier of history", 
and said that he "falsified English 
history in the Whig and bourgeois 
interest". It cannot be denied that 
he was, at times, guilty of partisan 
injustice to individuals, or foal he 
was capable of abusing history for 
polemical purposes- But Mara 
does nothing else. His interest in 
history is invariably determined 
by the need to buttress and justify 
his own system. 

Macaulay had robust prejudices 
but. unlike Marx, could often 
appreciate the virtues of people 
whose views he rejected — as he 
does m A Jacobi ids Epitaph. 

Mara's relentless dogmatism 
and bloody-mindedness towards 
opponents may have helped him 
to found a cult, but do not make 
him foe more admirable man or. 
certainly, foe better historian. 

Another advantage that Macau- 
lay has over Marx is that he knew 
about politics from the inside. 
Even if he had written no history 
at all he would be remembered for 
foe history he made, above all in 
India. During his three years there 
(I834-J7) he introduced a new 
legal code which a leading Indian 
nationalist historian. K. M. Pan- 
ikkar. rates the most beneficial 
legacy of the British Raj. More 
controversially, by foe policy 
resulting from his Education 
Minute, he made English foe 
language of the Indian elite: on 
any view a momentous develop- 
ment, and one which, though 
condemned by most Indian patri- 
ots during the independence strug- 
gle, may in time come to seem 
ever more of a blessing to India. 

At home Macaulay served for 
some time as a Whig-Liberal MP. 
and briefly as a Cabinet minister 
under Melbourne. This experi- 
ence. too. was valuable to him as 
an historian, even though it had 
the effect of delaying work on his 
History. 

Why is Macaulay so deplorably 
neglected? One reason is that foe 
liberal philosophy of which he was 
an outstanding embodiment and 
spokesman has been caught, in the 
modern world, between revolu- 
tionary dociines of foe left and 
anti-progressive or obscurantist 
doctrines of the right He believed 
in rational reform, and thought 
that England had a special ap- 
titude for it In the Milton essay 
that made his name he praises the 
poei for attacking "those deeply 
seated errors on which almost all 
abuses are founded, the servile 
worship of eminent men and foe 
irrational dread of innovation." 
Those abuses have been all too 
evident in the 20th century and 
Macaulay's reputation must have 
suffered from foe climate in which 
they have flourished. 

But there is another and even 
more depressing explanation. De- 
spite his lapses into partisanship, 
Macaulay was on the whole 
interested in foe past for its own 
sake, and he also wrote about it in 
a grand perspective. Nowadays 
the study of history seems largely 
confined to those who use it as 
ammunition for their own ideol- 
ogies, or who approach it only as 
narrow specialists. To both cate- 
gories Macaulay is uncongenial. 

The degeneration of history as a 
subject has resulted in a growing 
ignorance of the past Macaulay 
may have credited foe schoolboys 
of his day with more historical 
knowledge than they possessed, 
but he could confidently assume a 
good basis of such knowledge 
among foe thousands of educated 
adults who read his work, and 
more especially among foe leaders 
of foe countiy. Today foe leaders 
of most nations are historically 
illiterate. The neglect of Macaulay 
is one symptom among many of 
grave cultural decline.

but an eye-witness account by an 
fzvcsiiya reporter of an operation 
in Soviet Central Asia which also 
involved mounted and foot pa- 
trols in the valleys of foe 
Amudarya river and roadblocks 
set up by the highway police: 

A two-acre plot almost ready 
for harvesting, had been planted 
cariv, in the hope of reaping a fei 
profit — as much as 100.000 rou- 
bles — before foe season brought 
its usual crop of police raids. This 
time the growers were caught red- 
handed: police found foe chair- 
man of the local executive 
committee busy scything foe pop- 
pies in his own private plot 

Villagers assured foe police that 
foe two-aerc plantation belonged 


to a 96-ycar-old man who grew the 
poppies for his own needs: “My 
teeth ache and my hands hurt”, he 
said. “I have to cure myself." 
Blaming foe oldest member of foe 
family is the usual practice, in the 
hope that he will be less severely 
punished. 

Drug addiction is now new in 
the USSR, but appears to be on a 
much smaller scale than in foe 
United States and other Western 
countries. However, until Mikhail 
Gorbachov reorganized the cen- 
sors. the problem went un- 
disclosed in the party-controlled 
media apart from an occasional 
cryptic reference — as when Zarya 
Vostnka, foe party newspaper "in. 
Georgia, wrote in the 1980s of the 
need to expand compulsory treat- 
ment centres. 

Soviet conscripts in Afghani- 
stan are believed to barter rifles 
and ammunition for hashish to 
compensate for the shortage of 
vodka, but it is clearly not just a 
few returning soldiers who have 
become addicted. 


In Gorbachov's home territory 
of Stavropol, and its neighbouring 
province of Krasnodar, the num- 
ber of registered drug addicts is 
significantly higher than in 
surrounding areas which do not 
grow hemp. Izrcstiya suggests that 
foe culture of hemp (needed to 
make ropes for foe Soviet navy) 
should be concentrated in a few 
districts, with watch towers to 
prevent illegal harvesting. 

But in pans of Soviet Central 
Asia, hemp grows wild, and 
measures taken to wipe it out have 
proved incffcctive.The drug deal- 
ers. known as "botanists", hide in 
thickets during the day. and at 
nightfall try to smuggle their haul 
past foe police into the towns. 

The Isvcstiya reporter described 
how police captured two pot- 
smoking smugglers with large 
packs of hashish. Another patroL 
working with sniffer dogs on 
trains, discovered a passenger 
with 20 lb of hashish in his 
luggage. In a Moscow clinic he saw 


a 19 -ycar old girl, prematurely 
aged by heroin. He quoted a Min- 
istry of Health official as saying, 
that an increasing number of 
young people were becoming ad- 
dicts: they were "lost to society" 
driven to crime and seldom living 
beyond their thirties. 

Glue sniffing is another growing 
danger among Soviet children. 
Whole groups have killed them- 
selves by breathing chemical 
fumes. The reporter concludes: 
“Wc arc badly prepared for foe 
fight against such an evil as drug 
addiction". 

Yet the very feci that the Soviet 
authorities have now broken their 
silence is a step in foe right 
direction. Drug addiction. like 
venereal diseases and Aids, used 
to be classed as an affliction of 
capitalist society. Now that it is 
official that the Soviet Union is 
not immune, international co- 
operation should be easier.

Whatever Tom King, foe North- 
ern Ireland Secretary, and other 
ministers may say. foe Hills- 
borough agreement does threaten 
the status of Northern Ireland as 
part of the United Kingdom: 
chiefly because foe all-party sup- 
port at Westminster is based on 
conflicting interpretations. Mrs 
Thatcher declares that it re- 
inforces foe Union. The Labour 
Party supports ft on the ground 
that it has breached British sov- 
ereignty in the province and 
established the machinery which a 
Labour government could use to 
manipulate foe province out of the 
UK and into the Republic. 

The Unionist parties are not 
alone in opposing such an out- 
come. Thousands of Northern 
Ireland Catholics, myself in- 
cluded, do not want ft eifoec. 

The obvious duplicity within 
"the' will of foe sovereign 
Parliament" outweighs all Mrs 
Thatcher’s assurances. Her in- 
tentions hold good as government 
policy for this year and next. But it 
is possible that two years hence a 
government with contrary in- 
tentions will be operating the 
agreement in harmony with Dub- 
lin nationalism. 

Unionist leaders are called liars 
fbr interpreting the agreement as 
foe Labour Party does. As a result, 
foe Unionists are enraged. The 
incompetence of their leadens, 
who are unduly anxious to be seen 
as "moderates”, causes the growth 
of organizations among them 
which prepare for war. 

Once again a government at 
■Westminster Is demanding that 
Unionist MPs be "moderate^, Le^ 
compliant on the groundless 
assumption that this will make the 
people compliant But foe Ulster 
Protestants are one of foe most 
individualistic peoples in the 
world, and nothing is more certain 
than that if their leaders comply 
with governing arrangements 
which they . reject they will take 
their fete into their own hands. 

The common source of Union- 
ist political incompetence, of a 
suspicious intransigence that 
would reject a less dangerous 
connection with the Republic than 
foe Hillsborough agreement and 
of the ineradicably sectarian struc- 
ture of politics in Northern Ire- 
land, is not so much foe 
imposition 65 years ago of a 
devolved government that no- 
body in foe province wanted as foe 
exclusion of the province from foe 
party politics of the state. 

Mrs Thatcher said in a recent 
BEK? interview (Radio 4, April 27) 
that “everyone in Northern Ireland 
has the same right to vote for a 
Member of Parliament as we have 
in the rest of the UK. ” That is true 
only superficially. Parliamentary 
politics has been party politics for 
300 years. Britain is politically. 


and culturally to' a constderabk’ 
extent, what it has become 
through foe operation of foe great 
parties of state since the time of. 
Queen Anne. A constituency de- 
nied parliamentary representation, 
through foe great parties of state is ' 
in effect disfranchised. - . . 

Northern Ireland has been at; 
lowed to remain within- foe states 
since 1921 on foe condition <jf 
being excluded from foe politics oC 
the state. Elections in the province: 
are about whether to remaih- 
within the UK. The British party- 
boycott ensures that- Norfoent; 
Ireland politics cannot be national 
politics. Furthermore, . Ulster. 
Unionists have' been exhorted to' 

• support foe Hillsborough agrees 
ment as a sheer act of obedience toP 
the will of a Parliament ; from 
whose party-political substance 
they are excluded. ' _ 

The political and social coq— 
sequences of this political vacuum 
are various and far-reaching. Tfap: 
party leaders exhort foe. people 
Northern Ireland to “recon- 
ciliation”, but they withhold the; 
medium within - which ' recoup 
filiati on might occur elections? 
in which people might vote;, 
according to class outlook or 
social disposition, for parties., 
which are in contention to form, 
the government and not; as .af 
present, principally on religious' 
lines. Anything less than foat is^ 
make-believe politics. Stormont: 
was make-believe in great part-. 
Any new devolved le g i sl a tu re vyiJL. 
be entirely make-believe. ... 7- 

Do not think Z am putting a case' 
for "integration" and against 
devolution. That dispute is a rea - 
herring. Devolution within the 
politics of the stale would be 
infinitely preferable to "rates 
gration" (whatever it be). wiihout 
foe politics of the stale. The 
essential thing is the right to vote 
for, and be represented through, 
foe national parties. 

The Unionists are slowly begin- 
ning to realize this. And once : 
realization dawns,, the abstract- 
injustice and concrete political' 
damage of the party boycott are 
deeply felt and people wonder 
why' the 'party leaders are so' 
insistent that foe province must? 

■ continue to be excluded from the 
politics of foe state: I have only 
been able to suggest one reason: 
that . Northern Ireland policy is 
viewed in. Westminster as foittign 
policy towards foe Republic, and - 
foe Republic inrists that . thef 
Catholics in Northern . Ireland j 
must continue to be deprived of' 
any effective alternative to the: 
nationalist parties. *-

Kirting some 
basic issues 


I Wappineer, Wappioger an inhab- 
itant of Wapping. Old words, 
going back to the 17th century and 
usually derogatory. In OHa Po- 
drida Richard Home recorded an 
example from before 1792: 
"Whilst a Wappineer, a Milender, 
and a Boroughman. are terms 
proverbially used, about the Ex- 
change. to express an inferior 
order of beings." Human nature 
being what it is (nasty), we all tend 
to get rude labels attached to ns. 
For five years 1 was traduced as a 
Tug. usually with "dirty little” 
suffixed to II Tug is an Angliciza- 
tion of Togatus. a chap wearing a 
gown, sc an odious little swot and 
a prig of a scholarship boy with no 
money and from a doubtful social 
background. 

Being a hardened and shameless 
Wappineer, I sympathize with 
those who are lumbered with 
irrelevant labels, usually to do 
with race or gender. The National 
Union of Journalists is trying to • 
enforce a code to ban irrelevant 
epithets and labels. The question 
arises, fbr example, with rape and 
other crimes. Is it relevant to 
report that the rapist was black, or 
white or Irish? Or is it racism? Is 
it relevant lo report thegenderofa 
woman appointed to an important 
post? Or is ft patronizing? I think 
foal in some instances, for in- 
stance the appointment of the first 
female regius professor or the first 
woman prime minister, her gender 
is relevant and newsworthy. When 
the post is not so exposed, and 
other women have held ft before, 
it may be unnecessary to draw 
attention to the gender of its new 
holder. The sensitive scribbler can 
simply let the Christian name 
imply her gender. 

To describe Jane Austen as one 
of the greatest women novelists is 
to deploy. an otiose epithet since 
she was one of the greatest, 
novelists irrespective of gender. I 
suppose you might call George 
Eliot the greatest woman novelist 
for the benefit of those who do not' 
know that her real name was Mary 
Ann (later Marian) Evans. But I 
am not sure what such ignore 
amuses are doing reading such a 
piece anyway. 1 should describe 
her as the greatest novelist tout 
court, and let ignorant readers take 
their chance. To describe some- 
body as "the greatest woman 
violinist of our day" serves, like 
most labels, to discourage thought 
It diminishes her achievements by 
enclosing them in a ghetto, and . 
avoids foe question of whether she 
may not be one of the finest living 
violinists. 

I think that it is relevant to 
describe somebody as the first 


black cabinet minister because it is 
news, and as triumphant a day as 
the first woman prime minister.-. 
But to call somebody "one of the 
nation's leading black phit 
osophers” may be racist, and « 
ambiguous. Do you mean: one of 
the nation's leading authorities on ! 
black philosophy; a black who is 



CMs worms, 

one of the nation's leading philos- 
ophers; or. a leader among the 
nation's philosophers, who are; 
black? Kindly rephrase your sen-’ 
fence, and make sure that you 
have not put in the black ifc.

gence. Good writers will get them

CRYING SANCTIONS 


2EL ew T» l . fllis week have 

Heightened the political areu- 
J 16 "! 0v , er sanctions against 
South Africa. The first is the 
Hostile treatment accorded to 
Jr Geoffrey Howe by Presi- 
dent Ka unda of Zambia and 
5™ e Minister Mugabe of 
Zimbabwe. The second is the 
withdrawal of Nigeria. Ghana 
and Uganda from the 
commonwealth games. These 
events are seen as trailers for a 
turbulent 'Commonwealth 
Prime Minister’s Conference, 
ending with the withdrawal of 
several nations and perhaps 
with the break-up of the 
international organisation. 

'These high stakes have 
intensified the domestic politi- 
cal argument After several 
weeks in which the 
Government’s policy has been 
incessantly denounced as rac- 
ist, heartless and immoral, the 
Prime Minister replied to her 
critics in several interviews in 
which she questioned whether 
it was really moral for 
comfortable and well-fed peo- 
ple to cause unemployment 
and hardship among poor 
black workers in South Africa. 
That was the cue for her critics 
to. denounce Mrs Thatcher for 
heartless moralising. 

Such a counter-attack was 
doubtless expected — but the 
speech by Mr Leon Brittan 
must have been an unpleasant 
surprise. He accepted much of 
the Government’s case about 
the moral perversity and prac- 
tical ineffectiveness of sanc- 
tions. But he concluded by 
arguing - .and the damp 
fingerprints of the Foreign 
Office arc all over this logic — 
that if diplomacy foiled, then 
Britain should be ready to 
have recourse to “stronger 
measures.” 

What are we to make of 
these shifts? Mrs Thatcher’s 
motives are fairly transparent 
She clearly felt it necessary to 
rebut her critics and, if pos- 
sible. to capture the moral high 
ground from which Ministers 
were being fired upon. More- 
over, her stress on the im- 
morality of sanctions is . 


conceded by very determined 
critics to possess some weight 

It is admitted by them that 
sanctions will not bring South 
Africa to its knees - certainly 
for many years, perhaps for the 
foreseeable future; that they 
will cause such hardship in a 
country without social security 
that innocent black people, 
including women and chil- 
dren, will starve; and that the 
creation of a siege economy 
there will impoverish 
surrounding states. 

When these consequences 
are pointed out, the reply is 
made that most black leaders, 
in South Africa and in the 
front-line states, are neverthe- 
less prepared to make these 
sacrifices. That may well be so. 
But there are many ami- 
apartheid campaigners of long- 
standing, like Mrs Helen 
Suzman and Mr Alan Paton, 
who oppose sanctions. The 
black leaders calling for them 
— most of whom are not 
subject to democratic 
accountability — are demand- 
ing vicarious sacrifices since 
they do not expect to suffer 
unemployment and hardship 
themselves. Some of the black 
workers who would be making 
the sacrifices are prepared to 
do precisely because they have 
been falsely assured that sanc- 
tions would bring South Africa 
to its knees. And, finally, if the 
British government is to em- 
bark upon a policy that would 
kill black children without 
achieving its aims, itrequiresa 
betterjustification fordoing so 
than that other people believe 
it to be morally required. 

Mr Brittan apparently ac- 
cepts this case. He would only 
employ such perverse weapons 
either in order to add force to 
more peaceful diplomatic 
methods or as a final resort 
when diplomacy had foiled. 
But there is snag in even so 
moderate an argument. If it 
makes no sense to impose 
measures which would only 
inconvenience Pretoria but se- 
verely harm black interests 
today, why does it suddenly 
become sensible to do so when 


diplomatic methods have 
failed? And if the aim of 
British diplomacy is to per- 
suade Pretoria to dismantle 
apartheid gradually, which it 
is, why should the failure of 
that diplomacy persuade the 
British government to adopt a 
policy of which the most likely 
result is to drive the Afrikaners 
into a repressive laager? . 

The fact is that, as a policy 
designed to encourage reform 
in South Africa, “diplomacy or 
sanctions” makes no sense at 
all. Sanctions are a bad and 
foolish policy per sc and they 
do not suddenly become a 
virtuous and wise one because 
the Botha government refuses 
to make concessions. But they 
can be justified up to a point 
. by arguments of naked, amoral 
British self-interest. 

To adopt comprehensive 
sanctions might still domestic 
clamour, appease the indigna- 
tion of Commonwealth Prime 
Ministers, remove any threat 
to British trade in India, black 
Africa and elsewhere, lift the 
opprobrium of being regarded 
(however absurdly) as the sole 
friend of a despised regime, 
and permit us to enjoy the 
glow of moral self-approbation 
at having “taken a stand” 
against apartheid. These are 
arguments which move gov- 
ernments, even when they 
cannot acknowledge the fact, 
and they may yet move Mrs 
Thatcher away from her oppo- 
sition to sanctions. 

But newspapers exist, 
among other reasons, to tell 
the truth about such calcula- 
tions. Not only would the cost 
of such raison d'etai include 
the deaths of black children, 
but its gains would be tem- 
porary since, when sanctions 
foiled to topple the white 
government, a similar clamour 
would grow to demand their 
enforcement by a naval block- 
ade. A week is a long time in 
politics — but the period in 
which British governments 
would have to live with the 
evil consequences of sanctions 
would seem eternal. 


PERUVIAN DEMOCRACY STUMBLES 


In -six years of activity the 
Peruvian guerilla movement 
Senderd Luminoso has shown 
itself to be the bloodiesAnd 
least tractable subversion in 
the Americas. A movement 
that began its violent activities 
with Peru’s return to civilian 
rule in 1980, it saw no reason 
to pause when President Alan 
Garda succeeded Fernando 
Belaunde last year, and this 
year’s assassinations and sabo- 
tage brought greater pressure 
on the government for more 
rigorous security measures. 

Indifferent to popularity, 
which it neither seeks nor 
enjoys, it is more than usually 
iinpenetrable to intelligence. 
The Peruvian army in the East 
has too frequently tried to 
make up with brute force what 
it lacks in information. On 
coming into office. President 
Garda sacked a number of 
generals in an attempt to assert 
his control over counter-insur- 
gency operations. But the lim- 
its of this control were exposed 
when three prison mutinies 
were put down by the Repub- 
lican Guard, supported by 
other units; on June 19. At 
least 156 prisoners died - that 
being the military’s figure. 

No one can condone such 


of the profoundest and least 
doctrinaire of Peruvian an- 
alysts, the novalist Mario Var- 
gas Llosa, it* was “more a 
settling of accounts with an 
enemy than an operation 
whose objective was to re- 
establish order”. Others have 


return to military rule that 
offers a solution to Peru’s 
grievous problems. 

Peru is perhaps the most 
presidential and the least 
experienced of Latin-Ameri- 
can democracies, and Alan 
Garcia will have to pay for his 


however rushed to judgments share in the responsibility with 
and predictions that are less diminished prestige and 


justifiable. 

Willy Brandt returned from 
the meeting of Socialist Inter- 
national declaring Peru in 
imminent danger of a coup, 
and others have seized on 
events to herald the end of a 
cycle of superficial democ- 
ratization not only in Peni but 
in the rest of Latin America as 
well. They picture a region of 
endemic militarism where 
civilian control is no more 
than a fig-leaf. 

Neither conclusion is jus- 
tified. The Peruvian Minister 
of War declared on Thursday 
that there would be no coup. 
The essentially military crimes 
of July 1 9, not only provide no 
conceivable justification for 
such a move, but as they have 
weakened military prestige 
and provided Sendero with 
martyrs, they should 
strengthen the conviction that 
it is not unrestrained force or a 


i’lU Ul« c 

bloodshed. In the words of one 

birthday of a concept 


authority. But his popularity 
has not disappeared overnight, 
and it can still be hoped that be 
will live up to his own words as 
“the democracy that commits 
errors and excesses, is a 
democracy that knows how to 
condemn them and avoid 
them.” 

These are critical years for 
the armed forces of the area. 
The nations of Latin America 
require armies for reasons 
familiar enough throughout 
the world. In the last resort 
they must guarantee law and 
order in societies which are 
undergoing rapid social 
change; often in appalling 
economic circumstances. 

But the true way forward is 
not through civil-military 
confrontation, which revolu- 
tionaries are always happy to 
provoke. It is in part through 
better armies and better police, 
under democratic civilian con- 
trol.

Sir. Sir Reginald Muriey (July 3) 
asserts with surgical bravado that 
there was never any justification 
for redistribution of funds to the 
provinces, and joined with other 
London consultants in saying so, 
whilst employing the interesting 
argument that provincial costs are 
lower because death rates are 
higher. Professor Ivor Mills also 
claims (July 4) that the Cambridge 
clinical medical school has been 
fairly disadvantaged. 

Matters look rather different 
from the Midlands, where under- 
funding is associated with intense 
clinical activity. The University 
Hospital, Nottingham, and the 
Leicester Royal Infirmary, with 
the John Radcliffe Hospital, have 
the lowest cost per case treated 
amongst all the provincial teach- 
ing hospitals (substantially below 
£700; the London teaching av- 
erage is over £1,000) and the 
shonest length of hospital stay 
(the London teaching average is 40 
per cent longer than ours). 

. In Nottingham our average out- 
patient cost is £90 per new case 
(London average, £157). Our ratio 
of new cases to old cases seen is 
higher than at any teaching hos- 
pital (except St Mary's), and our 
accident case. cost is the lowest in 
the country. 

The claim is made for London 
that cases taken from elsewhere 
are unduly burdensome. Maybe 
so, but in four mainline disciplines 
(medicine; surgery, paediatrics 
and gynaecology) Nottingham 
cares for virtually every individual 
from its own district needing 
treatment, and an extra 23 per 
cent from outside districts. 

Because we have very busy and 
under-funded medical services, 
our academic clinical staff carry 
an unusually large part of the NHS 
service work. Professor Mills may 
feel that the Cambridge clinical- 
teaching school has been unfairly 
treated, but university statistics 
show that in 1983/84 Cambridge 
enjoyed a better staff to student 
ratio than any English medical 
school, except Oxford and could 
deploy nearly twice as many staff 
in relation to student numbers as 
we could 

We think our clinical and 
academic standards compare well 
with those of others*, and can only 
guess at the benefits which fair 
financial treatment might bring. 
At the least, wand closures could 
be reversed, academics could have 
proper time for academic work 
and enough consultants be ap- 
pointed to cope with some lengthy 
waiting lists.

Bishop and the basis of belief 


Wfddicombe report 

From the Leader of Westminster 
City Council 

Sir, While I welcome the 
Widdicombe report (details. June 
20) there must be strong doubt 
whether its recommendations are 
sufficiently far-reaching to give 
ratepayers the protection they 
need. The report says that the only 
way to stop those determined to 
undermine the democratic process 
is through the ballot box. This is 
small comfort for ratepayers who 
are regularly outvoted by the 
legions who do not pay rates. 

I recognise that the Govern- 
ment wishes to have extensive 
consultation on the report but 
some of the recommendations are 
by no means controversial: 
preventing senior officers of a 
council being members of another; 
producing controls to stop non- 
elected party committee members 
taking over effective local author- 
ity decision-taking; and giving the 
Audit Commission power to inter- 
vene before ratepayers have lost 
money through unlawful action. 

These are simple matters for 
legislation. They would be gen- 
erally acceptable to all except the 
hard left and would provide some 
immediate comfort for ratepayers 
while the larger implications of the 
study are being considered. 

Yours sincerely.

From Mr Gai Eaton 
Sir, It may seem a trifle imperti- 
nent for a Muslim to intervene in 
the delicate problems of the 
Church of England, but there are 
occasions when the outsider is 
tempted to comment. 

May I suggest that the most 
interesting question regarding the 
Bishop of Durham's speech to the 
Synod (reported in your issue of 
July 7) relates less to what he is 
unable to believe than to what he 
does in fact believe? When some- 
one confesses that he has difficulty 
in believing this or that, one is 
entitled to ask in terms of what 
personal convictions he finds 
“this** or “that” unbelievable. 

It is, surely. legitimate for 
people of faith to maintain that 
the convictions which dominate 
today’s secular world and which 
contradict the principles of Islam 
as they do those of Christianity are 
grave errors, rooted in atheist or 
agnostic “philosophies” of the 
I8lh and 1 9th centuries. The 
bishop appears to share certain of 
these convictions, but 1 fail to see 
why religion should be obliged to 
compromise with the opinions of 
irreligjon. 

The bishop is scornful about 
“laser-beam*’ miracles. As I 
understand it, Christians believe 
that God offered, through certain 
miraculous events, a way of 
salvation, a gateway to heaven and 
an escape from hell. One would 
have thought that this was rather 
more important than ending 
apartheid or preventing Hiro- 
shima. There is a qualitative 
difference — an incalculable 'dif- 


ference — between matters which 
concern our eternal destiny and 
those which relate only to our brief 
earthly life, whatever sufferings 
the latter may comprise. Could it 
be said that the bishop lacks a 
sense of proportion and of prior- 
ities? 

Moreover he makes a quite 
illogical leap from the Christian 
dogma that God became man to 
the assertion that “the central 
mystery of the incarnation is that 
God look on the contemporary 
world”. One might do better to ask 
whether the contemporary world 
has taken on God, but I am sure 
this dogma has never been taken 
to imply that he clothSf himself in 
secularism and unbelief as well as 
in a mortal body. 

In terms both of Islamic and 
Christian theology we are given to 
understand that we have been 
offered a choice between the 
narrow path which leads to 
heaven and die broad one which 
leads elsewhere. This is our privi- 
lege and our burden. 

Neither Jesus nor Muhammad 
was sent to save those who make 
the wrong choice from the con- 
sequences of this choice. It is not I 
think, inconsistent with either 
faith to suppose that those who, at 
the end of the day, suffer these 
consequences might wish them- 
selves back on this earth, even as 
the victims of apartheid or the 
slaves of Auschwitz, but still free 
to choose. 

Yours faithfully, 

G. EATON.

Threat to Cambridge 

From Professor. Glanville Wil- 
liams and others 

Sir. At Cambridge we are faced 
with a proposal for a large-scale, 
development on the city's south- 
ern boundary, involving the open 
land lying between the chalk 
upland (the Gog Magog hills) and 
the city. This is the most im- 
portant stretch on the edge of 
Cambridge, with easily the most 
attractive and striking relief; and 
across it are the best views of the 
city. 

Here it is proposed to build a 
housing estate of 900 houses, with 
a carriage-way (taking part of the 
green bell) linking it to a proposed 
complex in Trumpinglon. This is 
to consist of two hypermarkets 
(Tesco and Marks & Spencer, 
240,000 sq ft), a 300-bedroom 
hotel a multi-screen cinema, and 
parking for 4.000 cars. The 
hypermarkets, to be situated in the 
village just off the M 11 , and on the 
green belt, are intended to attract 
custom from miles around. 

. If all these proposals are ac- 
cepted they will intensify the 
problems of two roads that are 
already dangerous and excep- 
tionally busy, will increase conges- 
tion, noise and pollution, and will 
initiate a new sprawl into what is 


at present a relatively unspoilt 
part of the rural setting of Cam- 
bridge. 

It is- most unfortunate that 
planning authorities have not yet 
made a firm decision to hold the 
line against building in what has 
throughout been regarded as the 
most important part of 
Cambridge's green belt. So long as 
developers think they can make an 
entry into this area, they will 
continue to try to do so. With their 
ample resources they can employ 
professionals to press their case, 
notwithstanding previous rebuffs. 
The only outcome they will accept 
is one in their favour. 

Since the local residents who 
will be adversely affected can 
never be sure what the planning 
authorities will decide, they must 
gird themselves afresh against 
every renewal of the attack. So 
those of us who value our historic 
towns are engaged in what seems 
to be an almost unending battle.

Occupational hazard Coal and the CEGB 


From QAM A. D. French 
Sir, The police force have never 
been denied the honour of a 
multitude of occupational nick- 
names (letter, July 8). Members of 
the fire brigade are called 
“squirts”. We of the ambulance 
service lack such curt and memo- 
rable names. 

Our proper title of “Qualified 
ambulanceman/woman” is 
cumbersome. The popular “am- 
bulance driver” ignores the es- 
sence of our attendance on the sick 
and injured. Our advanced 
trained personnel are, by some, 
called paramedics, but so too are 
chiropodists and physiotherapists. 

We do have the advantage over* 
the other emergency services in 
the naming of our vehicles. Not 
for us a “panda” or “jam 
sandwich”: we. Sir, are proud to 
ply the roads and serve the public 
aboard our “meal wagons”. 

Yours faithfully,

From Mr C. J. Kelly 
Sir, I write with regard to your 
excellent article (July 2) by Colin 
Robinson and Eileen Marshall on 
the “cosy” relationship between 
two major nationalised industries. 
British Coal and the CEGB. We 
operate a small coal reclamation 
plant and throughout the miners’ 
strike we believed that working as 
many hours as possible and 
sending material to the CEGB 
would stand us in good stead for 
the future. How wrong we were! 

The CEGB have now notified us 
that the allocation of coal which 
we are permitted to sell them has 
been “reduced by 100 per cent”, 
presumably so that as much coal 
as possible can be bought from 
British Coal. 

Jt would appear that 
nationalised industries have 
shorter memories than anyone 
else.

Have a good trip? 

From Dr J. B. Coker 
Sir. During a recent holiday in 
DorseL I made a short journey by 
bus . From my seat up-front I- 
counted 14 notices to passengers. 
Most of these notices forbade this 
or that and many warned of 
penalties if transgressed. There 
was nothing to suggest that the 
bus company hoped that ! would 
enjoy my trip or get my mqney's 
worth. Furthermore, there were no 
signs as to what would happen if 
they were neglectful or discourte- 
ous to their customers— of whom 
there were only a handful.

Monumental choice 

From Sir George White 
Sir. Peter Burman (July 5) is right 
to draw the attention of your 
readers to the loss of 17th, 18th 
and 19th-century churchyard 
memorials through neglect, but a 
■ new and appalling danger to them 
has arisen through over-zealous 
care. 

A church in the Gloucester 
diocese of which I am a church- 
warden has a closed churchyard 
filled with splendid Cotswold 
headstones and table tombs, 
which is now conscientiously 
maintained by the district council 

Their, care has included 
weedkilling around the bases of 
the memorials, so that tufts of 
grass do not grow up there and 
remain unmown. After two years 
of this treatment the ground 
around the stones is now quite 
bare and unexpected tragedy has 
struck. 

Unprotected by grass, rapid 


erosion of the soil took place this 
spring, leaving the foundations of 
many table tombs exposed or 
undermined, as a result of which 
most are collapsing. In one case 
the deep vault beneath has 
opened. Headstones are no longer 
supported and frost, enco urged by 
the boggy ground, nas bitten into 
their bases. 

As a member of the Gloucester 
diocesan advisory committee for 
the care of churches I have visited 
other parishes and seen the tell- 
tale strips of dead grass around the 
tombs: the result of a first year of 
weedkiller care. Through bitter 
experience. I have been able to 
warn of the consequences of a 
second year of this treatment 

May I broadcast this warning 
nationwide through your col- 
umns? 

Yours sincerely,

S Africa crisis 

From Sir Martin Le Quesne 
Sir. Your call Heading article, June 
28) for “positive sanctions’* was a 
welcome ■ reminder that the 
preoccupation of the outside 
world with the grosser injustices 
and inhumanities of the present 
system in South Africa has di- 
verted attention from the real 
objective, the devising (by some- 
one) of sociaL political and eco- 
nomic structures which will 
permit ihe republic to play the role 
for which it has been cast by 
nature, the economic dynamo of 
the southern half of the continent 
• The valid criticism of successive 
South African governments is not 
that they have foiled to find an 
acceptable solution to their racial 


problem, but that, until economic 
forces recently compelled a change 
of approach, they have not shown 
that they were seriously and in 
good faith searching for one. Nor 
is it easy to believe that the South 
Africans by themselves are any 
longer capable, if they ever were, 
of the degree of detachment and 
imagination needed to siand back 
from the problem and look at it 
through new spectacles. 

This is a task which calls for a 
collaborative effort by brains 
drawn from a wider pool. Is there 
not here scope for the Common- 
wealth to play a more constructive 
role than merely trying to reach 
another compromise package of 
punitive sanctions? 

There is by now a good deal of 
experience in the Commonwealth 


of attempts, not always successful 
to construct constitutions which 
reconcile the accepted concepts of 
basic individual rights and lib- 
erties with the imperatives of 
traditional societies. 

The Commonwealth might of- 
fer to form a group, not of 
eminent, but of wise men .who. 
together of course with South 
Africans, might make a fresh 
approach to the design of accept- 
able consituiional and political 
institutions which will reflect the 
unique character of South African 
society. 

Yours foithfullv.

JULY 12 J924 

Thanks to Chariots of Fire the 
name of Erie Liddell and his 
achievement is known throughout 
Britain. In 1925 he left Scotland 
to be a missionary' in Tientsin. 
During the war hems interred in 
a Japanese camp in China inhere 
he died in 1945 aged 44. The 
present record for the 400 metres 
is - 1 : 3.66 sec set by Lee Evans 
(United States) at the Olympic 
■ Games in Mexico 1968 


OLY MPIC GAM ES 

E. H. LIDDELL BEATS A 
WORLD’S “RECORD” 

(From Our Special Cuirespondeni.) 

PARIS, July 1 

E. H. Liddell to-day won the 
Quarter-Mile (400 metres) for 
Great Britain in what was probably 
the most dramatic race ever seen 
un a running track. 

Yesterday, as you know, the 
world's “record” for the distance. 
48 3-5sec.. was beaten in one of the 
eliminating heats by Imbach, of 
Switzerland. To-day, in one of the 
semi-finals. Fitch, of the United 
States, knocked another l-5sec. off 
Irabach's time, finishing in 
47 4-5sec., with Butler, of Great 
Britain, so close that he also must 
have beaten the world's “record”. 
In the other semi-final Liddell beat 
Imbach in 48 I-5sec.. a time which, 
being only equal to the world's 
“record" as it stood yesterday 
morning, seemed comparatively 
tame. This was all exciting enough, 
however, and, then, for three long 
hours, we waited for the finaL while 
Long Jumping and Shot Putting — 
heats in the Decathlon - and the 
Six Miles Walk dragged along. It 
was all frankly dull, enlivened only 
by the pipes and drums of the 
Cameron Highlanders, who came 
up to entertain the crowd and did it 
splendidly. 

At last the moment came, and of 
the six starters three had beaten 
and one had tied what was 
yesterday the world's “record 1 
The other two were Johnston, of 
Canada, and Taylor, of the United 
States. It was a recognition of the 
crucial character of the moment 
that the loud speaker asked for 
complete silence, and begged every- 
one to slay seated. Liddell had the 
outside berth - generally consid- 
ered the worst place. Johnston had 
the inside, generally considered the 
next worst, with Butler next to 
him. 

There was a perfect start, and 
from the first jump-off the pace 
looked, and was. terrific. Two men 
of the six fell — Imbach at about 
half the distance and Taylor 30 
yards from the finish. But that 
made no difference, for there was 
never -more than one man in the 
race, and it was the pace he set that 
fairly ran them off their legs. 
Sweeping round into the straight 
Liddell led by four or five yards, 
and increased his lead by a couple 
of yards more in the run home. No 
one ever looked like catching him. 
Fitch was second, Butler third, and 
Johnston fourth, all bunched to- 
gether within a yard and a half, hut 
all with six dear yards separating 
them from the winner. When the 
time was given out as 47 3-5sec, 
and it was realized that, for the 
third time in two days, the world's 
“record” had been lowered, the 
Stadium went insane. How fast the 
time was is, perhaps, best iflustrat-1 
ed that it was a clear two seconds! 
better than Rudd's time, which was 1 
good enough to win at Antwerp 
four years ago. ■ 

So, in one wild minute, what had 
been the dullest of days was turned 
into about the most memorable 
that the Olympic Games have ever 
seen. It is improbable that six such' 
runners ever started together be- 
fore. Never before, surely, can a 
worlds “record” for a first-class 
event have been lowered three 
successive times by three different 
runners in a little over 24 hours. 
After that all else is bathos. The 
British team (Porter. Johnston, 
and Webber) qualified for the final 
in the Two Miles 13.000 metres) 
Team Race, running second to 
Finland in their heat. Finland, 
presumably, is certain to win the 
final to-morrow. The chief interest 
will lie in seeing whether Great 
Britain or the United States finish 
second. In the second heat of the 
Six Miles Walk MacMa6ter. ol 
South Africa, finished second, and 
Clarke, of Great Britain, fifth 
both, therefore, qualifying for the 
final. 

Bur after Liddell's race every- 
thing else is trivial. Whatevei 
happens now. Great Britain haf 
won the 100 Yards, the Quartet 
and Half Miles — three as nice 
events to win as you could chyqse. 


Setting to rights 

From Mr J. B. IV reford 
Sir. The correspondence on th; 
subject brings to my mind a moi 
down-to-earth question. Whi 
should one do when, pertiap 
through absent-mindedness or th 
distraction of the conversation : 
the table or sheer nerves, one ust 
the wrong implements, and 
faced with the task of eating th 
pudding or dessert with a sou 
spoon and a large fork? 

Perhaps the answer lies in th 
old saying “Fingers and ihumt

When used to describe enter-

"getting on a bit but potting a 
brave face on if” Like the rest 
of ns. My Music (which re- 
turned last night for a new 
series on BBC2) is no longer 
as young as it was. 

A mystifying blend of limp 
sallies, leaden anecdotes and 
marginal erudition, the pro- 
gramme resembles nothing so 
mach as a singularly feeble 
radio show with added colour. 
And what colour: Frank 
Muir's baby-pink bow tie, 
Steve Race's yelling red shirt, 
John Anus's evergreen three- 
piece suit. Alone of the contes- 
tants ("my frabjous four" as 
Mr Race introduced them), the 
soberly suited Ian Wallace 
took the game even half 
seriously. Everyone got a mark 
for every round. 

The spectacle of Mr Race 
tapping out the Charleston 
rhythm on a cigar-box is 
haidly the stuff of prime-time 
newing, whether or not Lew 
Srade really did give him the

Dreams of a 
Summer Night 
Hayward 


Since J9J2 or so thinking in 
this country about the course 
of m6dem an has been domi- 
nated by Paris and what did or 
did not" happen there. But we 
arc gradually registering that 
other countries than France 
have followed very different 
paths to modernity from the 
sanctified Impressionism to 
Post-Impressionism to Fau- 
vism to Cubism to Abstrac- 
tion line. It isquitc difficult to 
make sense in those terms of 
what happened in Italy, for 
instance, or Germany. And 
certainly in Scandinavia. Of 
course we have known for a 
long time that Munch existed, 
and he has been revered as a 
modern master, but also as a 
completely isolated figure. 
Otherwise, as recently as ten 
years ago it would have come 
as a surprise to most foreign- 
ers that there was anyone else 
of note painting in Scandina- 
via at alt. Wc know slightly 
better now. but the major 
show Dreams of a Summer 
Stahl, at the Hayward until 
October 5. should still come as 


a revelation to the great 
majority of British art-lovers. 

It will also come as an, 
unexpected pleasure. The ide- 
al show for a hot summer's 
day. it transpons us to the cool 
north of long iridescent twi- 
lights and luminous darkness. 
Nol all the works shown are 
landscapes, though they bulk 
large: it is a survey exhibition 
of painting in Scandinavia at 
the turn of the century. Scan- 
dinavia for this purpose con- 
sisting of Denmark. Norway. 
Sweden. Finland and Iceland. 
And one of the .most interest- 
ing aspects is to notice the 
unity within diversity in the 
separate r hough intcr-conncct- 
cd arts of the five countries. 

The tone of the show is 
primarily — though not totally 
— Symbolist. Some of the 
painters, like Munch himself 
at this period or the gloomy 
Dane Ejnar Nielsen, who 
paints almost exclusively the 
dying or the dead in muted 
tones of grey, arc evidently 
using the medium to convey 
some deeper meaning beyond 
superficial appearances. But 
this kind of intensity and 
gloom arc by no means char- 
acteristic of the show as a 
whole. And elsewhere one 
must find oneself asking what 


exactly wc mean by Symbol- 
ism when applied to a land- 
scape or a domestic interior. 

Probably the best definition 
of the Nordic approach is 
provided by one of the paint- 
ers included, the Swede Rich- 
ard Bcrgh. He says that it is 
nol enough for the painter just 
to open his eyes, as the 
Impressionists would have 
him do. “One must also close 
(hem at times, dream of what 
one has seen, transform it. and 
weigh the varied impressions 
the eyes have received against 
feeling in order to fathom the 
unity in this barbaric multi- 
fariousness." This readiness to 
consult the inner eye as well as 
the outer, to imbue everyday 
scenes with a mystical intensi- 
ty which is not quite explica- 
ble in rational terms, is 
something which seems to be 
shared by practically all Scan- 
dinavian painters of the peri- 
od 1890-1910. 

Funnily enough they appear 
to have made the transition 
almost as one man (or one 
person. 1 should say. since 
there arc several important 
women among them) right at 
the end of the 1880s: quite a 
few of those here shown in full 
Symbolist flight were to be 
seen a very few years earlier.

71 Sometimes, though. Baer 
Clave the impression that he 
woes not yet feel this music in 
wlis bones. One or two leaps 
Jicemed imperfectly prepared, 
thnd were executed with uncer- 


tain intonation. Melodies 
within a small compass of 
notes tended to be sung rather 
monotonously, and there was 
a habit (especially early on) of 
letting phrases fade limply 
away. 

More worryingly, Baer 
sometimes did not sound 
involved enough with the 
shifting mental agonies of the 
deluded youth. An understat- 
ed delivery is perhaps apposite 
for the line of farewell at the 
end of "Tranenregen", but the 
transition from anger to mor- 
bid self-delusion in 
“Eifersucht und Stolz" was 
barely marked, and the irony 
turning to bitterness in "Die 
liebe Farbe" was not really 
evident from Baer's gentle 
projection. 

He managed the final song 
beautifully, however. The vo- 
cal tone was appropriately 
restful and consoling: the 
huntsman's hom-call just ruf- 
fled the surface of Parsons’s 
rich, soothing piano chords. 
And in this splendid venue, 
even the daylight appeared to 
be tiding in poetic accord with 
the gathering gloom of 
Muller's story.

Radio 

Drifting south 
to success 


On Monday Michael Green, 
Head of Network Radio in 
Manchester, will take over as 
the new controller of Radio 4 
from David Hatch, who has 
been appointed to the Board 
of Management. A quiet and 
agreeable man. Mr Green has 
run a most productive region 
whose output in many areas — 
drama, features, current af- 
fairs with particular reference 
to File on 4 which he created — 
has been distinguished. And I 
understand that he also played 
a large part in the emergence 
'of Car's Whiskers, the first 
children's programme in years 
to sound as if it really stood a 
chance. 


With twelve programmes 
still to come, it is far too early 
to form an opinion of this 
series, but the opening found 
Mr Redhead, by his standards 
relatively subdued and self- 
effacing, presiding over a 
more or less straight-forward 
introductory survey of what 
the Bible means to different 
kinds of readers: man-in-ihe- 
sireet Christian. Jew. scholar. 
Jewish scholar, creationist and 
soon. 


Ht can take a lifetime to master the arts 


Enjoy the 
1 experience of a 

lifetime 



So the omens are good, 
although it will be months 
before we shall be able to 
detect a touch of a new hand. 
Indeed with any luck we never 
shall, for Mr Hatch has hand- 
ed over an extremely well- 
found ship and the advice to 
any successor must be “leave 
well alone", which is not at all 
the same as saying “change 
nothing". One of the hall- 
marks of Radio 4 these last 
few years has been construc- 
tive. enterprising change. 
“Leave well alone" means 
“keep that going". 




I hope he won’t let the 
tendentiousness of his subject 
either silence or sober him. I 
hope he isn't going to lean too 
much on the question of 
whether holy scripture is fact 
or falsehood, for it may be 
both and much more as well. 1 
hope his producer will not 
continue to set Biblical read- 
ings against music designed to 
enhance an air of mystery — 
the words themselves are 
quite mysterious enough.

One of the jewels in the 
Mancunian crown has always 
been A Word In Edgeways 
(Radio 4. Sundays: producer. 
Edward Lucas) which after 21 
years remains the most intelli- 
gent and articulate (some 
would say the only intelligent 
and articulate) discussion pro- 
gramme to be heard on radio. 
It owes its unfailing interest 
very largely to the qualities of 
a bom and bred Geordie. its 
chairman Brian Redhead, 
wfiose abilities to think on his 
feel (as opposed to free- 
associating and hoping for the 
best) and to stimulate his 
guests to do the same, are to 
my mind unmatched. 

Moreover — almost price- 
less in this age of ill-informed 
solemnity he brings to 
anything he does a perceptive 
impishness which actually 
adds weight to whatever may 
be the matter in hand. So I had 
no objection at all when last 
weekend Mr Redhead ap- 
peared to have made a north- 
ern drift into a flood tide by 
becoming Radio 4's principal 
contributor. He turned up not 
only on A Word in Edgeways. 
but as Parky's guest on Desert 
Island Discs and as presenter 
of his own 13-pan examina- 
tion of The Bible. The Good 
Book (Saturday, repeated 
Thursday: producer. Frances 
Gumley). 


As guest on Desert Island 
Discs Mr Redhead more than 
kept his end up, making it 
almost unnecessary for Mi- 
chael Parkinson to be there at 
all and rather adding to the 
impression that this, his sec- 
ond series. ' is beginning to 
create that in any very inter- 
ested sense its presenter is a 
sort of absentee. 1 have a 
picture of him filling in the 
crossword or doing the pools 
while the week’s castaway 
rattles on. However, if this old 
war-horse is on automatic 
pilot, another which immedi- 
ately preceeds it has come' 
back to life. 


Occasionally replaced and 
plainly rested. Margaret How- 
ard once again appears to be in 
charge of Pick of the Week 
and the programme is now as 
engaging as it ever was: a good 
mix. inventively linked. 


A delightful self-portrait has 
just been heard again on 
Radio 3. The Old Age of My 
Youth (Saturday. Sunday. 
Monday: director. John 
Thcocharis) was Pauline 
Spender’s three-part selection 
from the journal of Marie 
Bashkirtseff who at the age of 
13 left the Ukraine with her 
mother and brother to settle in 
Paris and Nice. Ten years 
later, at the threshold of what 
promised to be a brilliant 
career as a painter, she was 
dead from TB. Anna Calder- 
Marshall's lovely reading was 
full of bright enthusiasm that 
turned implacably to poignan- 
cy and shadow.

Symbolism and mystical intensity in Jens Ferdinand WiUumsen's Afier the Tempest 


in a show called ISOO-crne in 
Sordisk Ma/cri. which I saw in 
Copenhagen a couple of 
months ago. working in a 
thoroughly realist mode, influ- 
ence of Basticn-Lcpagc well to 
the fore. 

Though these dreamers of a 
summer night show a healthy 
variety in their styles and 
approaches, the only painter 
here included who seems to be 
working on quite another, 
prosaic wavelength is the 
Swede Anders Zorn — famous 
in Britain and America in his 
own day as a portraitist some- 
what after the manner of 
Sargent. The visionary gleam 
is very evident, for instance, in 
the Stockholm landscapes of 
Eugene Jansson. known to us 
in this country primarily for 
his later succession of male 
nudes in gymnasiums: even 
when he is painting rather 
grim-looking workers' flats on 
the outskirts, they arc suffused 
with the light that never was 
on land or sea. The Icelandic 
painter Thorarinn B. 
Thorlaksson produces some- 
thing of the same feeling in his 


countryside but even of Reyk- 
javik at sunset, without a sign 
of human habitation in the 
darkened buildings on the 
skyline. 


The mysterious intensity of 
the Dane Vilhelm Hammcr- 
shoi’s pearly interiors is now 
relatively familiar in Britain, 
thanks particularly to the 
staunch support of the Bury 
Street Gallery, but it is intrigu- 
ing to sec it here extended to 
the outdoors, in such extraor- 
dinary' paintings as The Budd- 
ings of the Fust Asiatic 
Company in Copenhagen . 
which creates an almost surre- 
al effect by its sheer bareness 
and highly sophisticated jug- 
gling with perspective. 


Finn . Akseli Gallen-Kallela 
carries the Symbolist element 
in a different direction with 
his powerfully nationalist evo- 
cations of the legendary world 
of the Kalevcia. The Dane 
jens Ferdinand Willumsen. 
one-time friend and disciple of 
Gauguin, and the Swede Ernst 
Joscphson pursue the mystic 
gleam to the border of insan-. 
ity. and in Joscphson's case 
definitely over ir. "And such 
fairv-ialc fantasists as the 
Norwegian Kittclscn and the

The Rover 
Swan, Stratford 


Sheer pleasure apart, there 
seemed to be two main rea- 
sons for including Aphra 
Behn’s comedy in the Swan 
repertory: its link with Much 
Ado About Nothing, and the 
feet that it first appeared 
(1677) before the direct lines 
to Shakespeare had Finally 
been cut 

The Rover, unlike most 
work covered by that elastic 
term, is truly a Restoration 
play. Not only was it written 
during Charles's reign, it also 
refers back to the years of exile 
with dispossessed royalists 
scattered around the world: 
“Rovers of fortune", Mrs 
Behn called them, halers of 
the Puritan ethic, short of cash 
and foreign credentials, but 
determined to make them- 
selves respected as gentlemen. 
All the elements that go to 
make up the artificial world pf 
Congreve and Vanbrugh, can 
be seen here anchored to their 
economic and political ori- 
gins. 

The piece is set in a Spanish 
colony where a mixed party of 
British cavaliers, including the 
nautical adventurer of the 
title, descend at carnival time 
and start sorting out the local 
talent. Belvile. an upstanding 
colonel has serious marital 
intentions. The others lick 
their lips over the carnival 
girls: while Willmore, the 
rover, is after every female 
thing that moves. 

- Even so. it is the women 
■who take the sexual initiative. 
They include Angelica, the 
costliest courtesan in the West 
Indies, and Lucetia. a former 


slave who avenges herself by 
fleecing her clients. At the 
centre are three sisters, all 
under the control of a tyrant 
brother who make off to the 
carnival as gypsies, rebelling 
at the pros pea of arranged 
marriage and confinement in 
a nunnery. 

The famous paradox pre- 
sented by Mrs Behn is that she 
was a redoubtable feminist 
who also supported the idea of 
marital submission. In this 
play, she resolved the contra- 
diction with the aid of the 
Spanish male. True to English 
tradition, every Spaniard who 
appears — from the sisters’ 
grandiose brother to Lucelta’s 
pimp — exemplifies stiff- 
backed masculine domina- 
tion. The play takes it out on 
them with a vengeance; thus 
allowing the maurauding Brit- 
ish (with the exception of an 
Essex booby, thrown onto the 
street in a pair of whore's 
knickers) off the hook. They' 
may be hell-raisers: but at least 
they are fun. and supporters of 
the king over the water. 

John Barton's production 
toys the expected stress on the 
play's feminism: switching the 
scenic order so as to begin 
with the site of the girls 
rebellion, and finally showing 
them advancing on their cow- 
ering brother with drawn 
swords. It also gives great 
weight to those passages where 
brisk comic action is followed 
by female soliloquies. In all 
this, however, there is never a 
note of grinding feminist 
grievance. The need to please 
a rakish public may partly 
account for this. More to the 
point, is Bchn's vigorous feir- 
mindedness. “You have a 
quality that I 

adore*\Willmore tells the girt 


to whom he finally succumbs: 
“good nature". If ever Behn 
was describing her own tem- 
perament it was in that line.

Inevitably, even in a show 
of this size, there must be 
regretted omissions — it is a 
pity, for instance, that some of 
WiUumsen's more measured 
works than the lurid . liter the 
Tcm/test were judged loo frag- 
ile to travel — but in general 
one could not ask for a more 
comprehensive and balanced 
introduction, or one better 
calculated to make friends and 
influence people. 


The best example of it is in 
the figure of Willmore him- 
self, who is at once an irre- 
pressibly daring adventurer 
and a complete fool. Again 
and again, following wherever 
his groin leads him.' he finds 
himself caught out in lies, and 
messing up the intrigues of his 
friends who ' forcibly bar him 
from the colonel's wedding for 
fear he brine down disaster 
yet again. After his Stratford 
Leonles. Jeremy Irons has 
loosened up marvellously for 
this role. With the manner of 
an accident-prone Errol 
Flynn, he ricochets between 
gallantry and drunken fum- 
bling. a figure of fun who 
always retains the quality of “a 
prince aboard his little wood- 
en world". Defending his in- 
constancy he goes over into 
verse: and as Mr Irons speaks 
self-mocking lines like “1 
must like cheerful birds, sing 
in all groves” are pure poetry.

laughs don't come from jokes, 
they come from characters in

Ever since Annie Hall, a 
warm comedy of a romance 
found and lost, he has been 
resisting the impulse toward 
the jokes and frenetic comic 
action displayed m his early 
movies, like Take the Money' 
and Rim and Bananas Annie

had an ear for music. I could 
be funny. So in my films, 
things get filtered through a 
comic prism. When I m sitting 
down to write something, my 
perspective seems to go, 10 
what's humorous, even if it s a 
grim situation. An extreme 
example would be Love and 
Death, which actually takes a 
broad comic perspective, but 
what is it when you think 
about it? It's actually about 
war and people dying. be- 
trayed by death or God at tne 

end." , 

In the character of Mickey 
Allen has created another of 
his death-haunted men. like 
Alvy in Annie Hail and Isaac 
in Manhattan. Their near- 
paralyzing fear. Allen says, has 
been with him almost as long 
as he can remember, although 
he can point to nothing that 

triggered it. . . . 

“1 was always obsessed with 
death, even as a child. It 
always used to frighten me. l 
have memories of being very 
young, probably six or eight, 
and being put to sleep at night 
and lying in the black, think-

imagine the emptiness, the 
finality, the irrevocability of 
it. I'll occasionally still do it 11 
1 wake up in the middle of the 
night in a bad week." 

Allen draws on his own 
obsessions so consistently that 
audiences often blur the dis- 
tinction between his life and 
an. Annie Hail, based loose y 
on Allen's relationship with 
the film's star. Diane Keaton, 
was considered pure, if exag- 
gerated. autobiography, put 
Allen maintains that the films 
are not autobiographical, be- 
cause the events they depict 
did not happen. 


woric". especially “your early 
funny ones". How could such 
details not point to Allen? Yet 
he wilfully chose to ignore the 
extra-artistic problem. “I 
thought maybe 1 should have 
another actor play the role , 
he savs. "but 1 really didn t 
care how it was perceived. I 
wanted to do what 1 wanted to 
do, and I feel that some day 
when I'm not in the gossip 
columns, people will be able to 
see the film and judge n on us 
merits." ..... 

The problem ot Allen s 
being identified with his roles 


began during his days asa 
stand-up comic in the twos. 

He quickly found that "just 
talking as myself to the audi- 
ence was the most comton- 
ablc for me and the most 
enjovablc for the audience . 

But "the close-io-lifc comic 
persona that emerged was not 
planned. "1 never consciously

stage and tried to get laughs. 

The only sense of a peraona is 
ihai one exaggerates for tne

movie career. Al-

people like a picture, maybe 
I'm becoming part or the 
establishment. Fm not chal-

popular thing, when you go to

see a lifestyle that you under-

In Hunnah. Allen s roman-

further than he would like. 
“What you want is for there 10

THE TIMES SATURDAY JULY 12 1986 


Edited by Shona Crawford Poole TRAVEL 


Rivals in the Great Game 


Pet er Hopkirk visits a 
lonely outpost in 
China, once tbe focus 
of a fierce struggle 
bet ween imperialists 

From the roof of the British consul- 
ate-general at Kashgar, in the shadow 
of the Chinese Pamirs, once fluttered 
the last Union Jack between India 
and the North Pole. Today, few 
passers-by give the peeling, mud- 
walled building so much as a glance, 
little realizing the role it played for so 
long in the Great Game, that shad- 
owy struggle between Britain 'and 
Russia for ascendancy in Central 
Asia. 

From this remote oasis town, lying 
half-way between the front lines of 
the two rival empires, British inteilir 
gence officers reported to their chiefs 
on every Tsarist, and later Bolshevik, 
move in the region. At stake. or ?° 
strategists at home were convinced, 
was the richest of all imperial prizes - 
British India. 

In those days Kashgar was one of 
the most isolated and little visited 
places on earth. The nearest towns of 
any size lie in Russia, on the far side 
of the Pamirs, while Peking is some 
2.400 miles to the east The oasis is 
cut off on three sides by high 
mountain ranges, while on the fourth 
lies the treacherous Taklamakan 

Kashgar is more like 
Turkey than China 

Desert, into which entire caravans 
have disappeared without trace, and 
whose name means “Go in — and you 
won’t come out”. 

Even today Kashgar is not easy to 
reach, being some three days* drive 
through the Tian Shan mountains 
from Urumchi, the region’s capital, 
although it is now accessible from 
northern Pakistan via the lofty and 
gruelling Karakoram Highway. Kash- 
gar also has a landing strip for small 
aircraft, and perhaps most visitors 
arrive that way, but sometimes flying 
is halted for days on end by 
karaburans (black hurricanes), the 
sandstorms so dreaded by travellers. 
My own flight was grounded for 24 
hours in the remote Silk Road oasis of 
Aksu. in the Tian Shan foothills. 

Yet more foreigners now visit

Close shave: old men in Kashgar' 

Kashgar in a day than once did in 
several years. In' contrast ' to its 
forbidding surroundings. Kashgar is 
extremely picturesque and has 
changed little from the days when it 
took several months to get there. . 

Its Uighur people being Muslims, 
Kashgar is more like eastern Turkey 
than China proper. The market 
square by the great mosque must be 
one of the most colourful places on 
earth, with its donkey carts and 
white-bearded men in long, striped 
. silk coats and tall, leather boots. 

It was in the early 1890s that this 
ancient caravan town became the 
epicentre of fierce imperial rivalry 
between Britain and Russia. Both 
sides set up listening posts there. The 
British one was quartered in the- 
modest native house known as Chini 
Bagft, or Chinese Garden, and was 


s picturesque and ageless market 

run for 28 years by George 
Macartney, an intelligence officer and 
diplomat of outstanding talent. His 
Russian rival was the redoubtable 
Nikolai Petrovsky, virtual “king” of 
Kashgar when Macartney first ar- 
rived. aged just 24, in 1890. Rivalry 
between the two men. both officially 
there as consuls, was intense and at 
times personal. Despite his consular 
cover; it was no great secret that 
Macartney was there to try to curb 
Russian influence in Chinese Central 
Asia and give early warning of any 
Tsarist military threat to India's 
northern frontier. • 

In 1898 Macartney imported from 
Britain a young bride who was to 
share 17 of his lonely years at Chini 
Bagh and bear him three children. 
Catherine (later Lady) Macartney was 
to perform wonders with Chini Bagh 
and its garden, transforming it into a

TRAVEL NOTES 


When Kashgar was first 
opened to foreigners, the only 
way to get there was on an 
organized tour along the 
ancient Silk Road sites. These 
usually take in Xian (site of the 
Terracotta Army), Dunhuang 

S he Caves of the Thousand 
uddahs). Turf an and 
Urumchi. Today Kashgar can 
be reached on an individual 
visa from Peking (by air first to 
Rumchi). Hong Kong (via 


Pakistan. Visas are only 
granted for the latter route If 
the applicant has a hotel 
reservation for Tashkurgan, 
obtainable only by writing to 
Peking. The alternative is on an 
organized tour using this route.

and run 

Once the strawberry crop is 
over, the plants will start to 
produce runners. These do not 
in any way diminish the 
vigour of the parent plant and 
it is perfectly all right to let 
them run unless you grow 
your strawberries in perfect 
lines. 

1 f you need new plants to fill 
in gaps or to plant up a new 
bed. you should select runners 
from your best plants. You 
can take four or five -from 
each. Taking each runner in 
turn, gently press the plantlet 
nearest to the parent plant into 
a small pot filled with potting 
compost which you embed in 
the soil. Secure each plantlet 
in its pot with a U-shaped 
piece of wire and snip off the 
growth which extends beyond. 
Make sure none of the 
planllcis dry out. 


WEEKEND TIPS 


• Check early potatoes and 
begin lifting if they are ready. 

• Dig op tendrils of bindweed 
with a hand trowel before they 
get a hold on other plants. 

• Tidy strawberry bed, remov- 
ing dead leaves and straw, 

• Place a tile or slate beneath 
small cucumbers and pomp- 
kins to keep them off the soiL 

• Feed outdoor chrysanthe- 
mums and dahlias.

home-from-home for the few travel- 
lens determined enough to reach 
Kashgar. 

In 1911 Chini Bagh was officially 
deemed a consulate-general to bring it 
into line with the rival Russian 
establishment, and in 1913 
Macartney was knighted. By then 
Britain and Russia were allies and the 
century-long threat to India appeared 
to be over. But then came the Russian 
Revolution, and a new menace — 
Bolshevism. 

Macartney’s successor was Colonel 
Percy Etherton of the Indian Secret 
and Political Department, a formida- 
ble and at times ruthless man who 
between 1918 and 1922 fought a one- 
man war against the Bolsheviks from 
Kashgar. With a powerful radio 
receiver in Chini Bagh he was able to 
intercept their secret wireless conver- 
sations and pick up their plans for 
Bolshevizing India. 

He proved such a menace that the 
Russians put a heavy price on his 
head, and tried in vain to persuade 
the Chinese to let them reoccupy 
Petrovsky’s old consulate-generaL

ing-post in Kashgar. Britain’s loneli- 
est outpost was finally dosed down 
when Mao came to power. Petrov- 
sky's old consulate still stands, serv- 
ing as a guest-house for offidal 
visitors and tourists. With its yellow- 
washed walls and distinctly Russian 
architecture, it still preserves some of 
its old atmosphere. 

But Chini Bagh has long since come 
down in the world, and until recently 
was used as an overnight halt for 
long-distance truck drivers plying the 
Silk Road. Lady Macartney would 
not recognize it today. When I last 
saw them, the once beautiful gardens 
were a wasteland, pigsties standing 
where English fruit trees and other 
European flora once grew. 

The residence itself, once tbe 
smartest in Kashgar, was uncared for, 
its walls cracked and peeling, the 
woodwork decaying. Only the nail 
holes over the gateway remained to 
show where the huge royal coat of 
arms used to hang, while the court- 
yard, once the parking place for the 
sedan chairs of visiting mandarins, 
was littered with pieces of broken 
machinery. Now I hear it is being 
refurbished as a hostel for 
mountaineers. 

But for the visitor who seeks it out. 
Chini Bagh is still a poignant remind- 
er of the high days of the Great Game 
when the British intelligence services 
were the finest in the world. 

Peter Hopkirk, author of several books 
on Central Asia, is currently writing 
one on the Great Game. 




waterfront 

Everybody knows Canter- 
bury's Cathedral, but how 
many are aware that it is 
possible to take a boat right 
through' the old part of the 
city, and gain a good idea of 
how it must have appeared to 
the pilgrims of the Middle 
Ages? 

I hired a rowing boat from 
Canterbury Tours, a friendly 
company which charges £1.60 
an hour, but beware you don’t 
become so entranced by the 
river journey that you over- 
step your time limit. Trowed 
upstream, bn a tributary of the 
Great Stour that was original- 
ly forded to furnish fish for the 
merries. 

The trout are still there, 
darting and weaving in the 
clear water, and as I passed 
underneath a succession of 
low bridges and ancient budd- 
ings it was easy to imagine 
myself back in medieval Can- 
terbury, when the soft splash 
of the oars would mingle with 
Gregorian chants and .the 
summoning of bells. 

On a hot summer day the 
immediate vicinity of the 
Cathedral can be as crowded 
as anywhere in London but 
the equally picturesque river- 
side buildings amply repay the 
discriminating wanderer. 

The area behind the Cathe- 
dral — and the lanes that 
follow the river’s course — all 
appear much as they must 
have done to Chaucer, assum-

THE TIMES COOK 


Cash in on the profligacy of the mint 


Shona Crawford Poole turns to the 
East and West for inspiration 


Diana Laadtwtter 


h does not do to dismiss 
cooking's cliches. Take mint 
and its ongoing relationship 
with new potatoes, peas and, 
of course lamb. The Iamb 
association is interesting. It 
might reasonably be a mar- 
riage of purely local conve- 
nience based on the ease, nay 
profligacy, with which mint in 
its many forms grows in this 
country. It is the least temper- 
amental and most indestnicli- 
| ble of garden herbs. 

But Iamb rs also the staple 
j meat of the Middle East and 
mint is one of the area's most 
widely used herbs. There 
scholars believe they have 
I been used together since the 
Exodus when the children of 
. Israel were commanded to eat 
roast meat with bitter herbs at 
the first feast of the Passover. 
The variety known here as 
horsemim is thought to have 
been one of those bitter herbs. 

Thus the Last Supper, eaten 
during Passover, probably 
consisted of roast Iamb with 
mint, and in commemoration 
of that meal, it became the 
Paschal Iamb of Christian 
culinary tradition. 

Mint has such a strong 
personality that it is a tricky 
herb to experiment with. The 
outcome is likely to be gor- 
geous or ghastly. I say mint, 
singular, but there are innu- 
merable varieties because 
mints have no inhibitions 
about breeding with their 
relations. Some have softer 
flavours than others so taste 
mint before using it and take 
the quantities specified in 
recipes only as a guide. 

(n a sparkling new book 
called The Complete Meze 
Table (Ebury Press, £8.95), 


Rosamund Man offers several 
recipes for dukkahs , moreish 
mixtures of nuts, seeds and 
herbs which are. the street 
snacks of the eastern Mediter- 
ranean. They are sold in little 
paper pokes to be eaten with 
pitta bread clipped in olive oil. 
Here is her recipe for iauz. 
na'na wa kuzbari. a hazelnut, 
mint and coriander dukkah. 
Hazelnut, mint and coriander 
dukkah 

Serves six to eight 

225g (8oz) shelled hazelnuts 
55g (2oz) coriander seeds 

6 tablespoons chopped fresh 
mint 

Maiden or sea salt 

Grill the hazelnuts and corian- 
der seeds separately, until 
browned but not burnt, then 
grind them briefly. 

The mixture is always a 
very dry one. with the nuts 
lightly crushed or finely 
chopped rather than com- 
pletely pulverized, so if using a 
blender or spice grinder just 
whizz it very briefly. The 
secret is to release the flavour 
but not the oils, or the mix 
turns into a paste and will then 
go rancid if not eaten 
immediately. 

Mix the nut and seed mix- 
ture with the mint and a good 
pinch of salt 

Two Middle Eastern salads 
I particularly enjoy are 
cracked wheat with herbs and 
yogurt with cucumber. Both 
use mint and both are child's 
play to make. Proportions of 
ingredients are infinitely vari- 
able — these are mine. 

Forbuighul salad make sure 
you have the finely cracked 
wheal which looks like coarse 
semolina. 





Burghul salad 

Serves six _ 

170g (6oz) brughul 

1 bunch spring onions, 
finely chopped 

1 handful flat-leafed parsley 

leaves, finely chopped 

24 mint leaves, finely chopped 
4 tablespoons lemon juice 
4 tablespoons good olive oil 

Salt 

Freshly ground black pepper 
Put the burghul in a bowl and 
cover it with cold water. Leave 


it to soak for about 20 
minutes, then drain off the 
water. Wring out handfuls of 
the soaked burghul and return 
it to the bowl. 

Stir in the chopped spring 
onions, parsley and mint, 
followed by the lemon juice, 
olive oil and salt and pepper to 
taste. Mix well and leave it to 
stand for half an hour before 
serving. 

Burghul salad can be eaten 
* on its own. with grilled meat, 
or traditionally as one of 
several dishes in a selection of 


dips and salads. The same 
applies to this yogurt and 
cucumber salad. Use thick, 
creamy, strained greek yogurt. 

Yogurt and cucumber salad 

Serves six 

225g (8 oz) strained greek 

yogurt 

Vi cucumber 

1 clove garlic, crushed 

12 mint leaves, finely chopped 

Salt 

Freshly ground black pepper 
Tum the yogurt into a bowL 


Dice the cucumber finely, and 
add it to the yogurt with the 
garlic, chopped mint and salt 
and pepper to taste. Mix well 
and chill until needed. Serve 
with hot pitta bread. 

Mint is a popular flavouring 
in north African kitchens. 
Mint tea. a sweetened infusion 
of green tea and fresh mint is a 
Moroccan speciality. The herb 
and spice combination for the 
following marinade was sug- 
gested by a Moroccan dish. 
Spring chickens, poussins. are 
used here, but chicken pieces 


may be used the same way. 
Herb basted poussIn 
Serves four 

4 poussins 

2 cloves garlic, crushed 

4 tablespoons chopped 
coriander leaves _ 

4 tablespoons chopped 
mint leaves 

1 teaspoon chopped oregano 

4 tablespoons oil 

2 tablespoons lemon juice 

1 tablespoon paprika 

1 teaspoon ground cumin 
Salt 

Using poultry shears or kitch- 
en scissors, cut the poussins in 
halves, discarding the spine 
and parson's nose. Trim off 
the wing-tips. 

Using a processor or pestle 
and mortar, reduce the garlic, 
coriander. minL oregano, oil 
lemon juice, paprika, cumin 
and salt to a paste. Rub it all 
over the birds and leave them 
lo marinate for several hours. 

Transfer them to an ojled 
baking tin and bake them in a 
preheated moderately hot 
oven (200°C/400°F. gas mark 
6) for about 45 minutes, or 
until completely cooked. The 
marinade bakes to a rich, 
blistered glaze. Serve with rice 
or potatoes and a salad. 

A mint julep is not the kind 
of drink that is merely poured 
or mixed. It is a drink that 
American novelists have their 
heroes build with ceremony. 
Belying its frivolous name, a 
mint julep is serious drinking. 

The requirements are ice. 
bourbon, sugar and lots of 
fresh minL Take a highball 
glass or tumbler and fill it in 
the American fashion with 
crushed ice. Add a sugar cube 
and then pour in a generous 
measure of bourbon (rye whis- 
ky). Top with sprigs of minL 
No shaking, no mixing. 




EATING OUT 


DRINK 


Couscous 
mixed 
with kitsch 

On high summer evenings, the 
Finchley Road acquires an 
Improbable sublimity. The 
race track from central Lon- 
don to the Ml becomes' a 
canyon winding towards the 
sun through great red cliffs. 
The scope should be vast 
refugees from the tyrannies of 
the 1930s, optimistic Caribbe- 
an immigrants in the 1950s. 
countless foreign students — 
aU these have passed through 
and eaten here: many have 
settled. 

In reality the range of 
cuisines available is probably 
more indicative of catering 
traders' opportunism than of 
the area's ethnographic mix: 
certainly there are a few 
middle European places and 
several which observe kosher 
practice, but the range is 
essentially that which is to be 
expected where there is a large 
transient population. 

Avoid the Satay Jaya, a 
more or less elegant Malaysian 
place with plenty of smoked 
mirror glass. Almost every- 
thing lasted startlingly nasty: 
flaccid noodles, fried noodles 
dense with chemical flavour- 
ing, foul beef rendang, soapy 
satay sauce, and the satay 
itself chewy as rosin. The air 
conditioning is very good. £27 
for two. 

Between here and Dynasty 
are. inter alia* the first “shop” 
in Britain to sell shares, a 
tattoo parlour, two night clubs 
and a couple of dozen lan-

THE BRITISH 
SUMMER. 


ONE THING 
YOU CAN 
RELY ON. 


guage schools whose first-year 
students evidently include 
most of Finchley Road's wait- 
ers. At Sclav Jaya I had asked 
for a jug of water and was told 
I had to have it by the glass — 
because “we have pour 
service” (mimes pouring from 
jug. insouciant of pun). At 
Dynasty you order by pointing 
to the numbers beside the 
dishes which are from the 
repertoires of Peking and 
Szechuan. 

It is worth trying the dump- 
lings filled with minced pork 
and dressed with chilli oil and 
garlic, caramelized beef with 
chilli and carrots, and 
“seaweed", which is within 
the capability of anyone with a 
box on his lawn-mower and a 
deep fryer. A plateful of wun 
tun looked like the wings of 
bats attacked by an araonisL 

But this is a sound establish- 
ment with an evidently regu- 
lar clientele, which is always a 
promising sign. Quite why so 
many of the customers should 
drink wine is a mystery, the 
thing to drink is tea. If you 
must have alcohol you might 
as well go for bust and hit one 
of the rice-based oddities fla- 
voured by lizard, snake or 
unborn rat (they all taste of 
dry old paper). Without alco- 
hol you’ll pay about £25 for 
two. 

At Laurent you'll pay no 
more for a meal that does 
include wine, a richly comic 
little number from Casablanca 
I called Chante Bled. This is a 
I Tunisian place, though the 
j decor is beginner's 
Jacobethan. as kitsch as the 
i limestone-clad houses 
opposite. 

The menu offers a handful 


of basic French dishes, such as 
steak au poivre and entrecote 
beamaise, and “international" 
ones — prawn cocktail, scampi 
with tartare sauce and so on. 

The point of the place, 
however, is couscous, which is 
the best in London. The broth 
to moisten the grain contains 
chick peas, carrots, tomatoes, 
stewed lamb fillet and stewed 
ox tongue. The chilli sauce 
called harissa. which is mixed 
with spoonfuls of the broth 
according to the strength of 
your stomach and the mas- 
ochism of your tongue, is 
presented here in an unusually 
liquid form. The accompany- 
ing char-grilled meat includes 
the usual chunks of lamb, 
lamb chops, merguez (beef 
sausages cut with chilli). 

After you have eaten this, 
you're unlikely to want any- 
thing but mint tea or Turkish 
coffee and a taxi home. But be 
warned: a couple of hours 
after eating it you will have 
swollen alarmingly. 

Laurent is a jolly place with 
three generations of the family 
in the kitchen, prompt and 
competent service, and a volu- 
ble clientele which should 
learn that the way lo eat hrik a 
foeuf without gening it down 
your front is to eat it with your 
hands, holding it at the edges 
— otherwise it’s your shirt that 
will be the bun of the yolk... As 
I say. approximately £25 for 
two.

Crack open a bottle for a crustacean 


Last summer I sat on the 
beach at Robin Hood's Bay in 
Yorkshire, for three sunny 
days in a row, devouring the 
delicious, fresh local crab and 
washing it down with a series 
of different white wines. 

As it happens it was not all 
play on that beach, for 1 had 
forgotten how rich and strong- 
ly flavoured crab meat can be. 
My first vinous partner for the 
crab was a reasonable Beaujo 
lais Blanc from the Loran. a 
well-known negotiant house, 
bought somewhat surprisingly 
at the local shop, ft is a 
Beaujolais rarity that know- 
alls order in restaurants just to 
annoy the wine waiter and to 
show oft* to their guests. It 
paled beside the pungent crab 
that still smelled and tasted of 
the sea. 

The second wine was a 
pleasant enough, minor white 
burgundy, a Macon-Villages 
from Georges Duboueuf that 
had admittedly been rattling 
around in the back of my car 
all week, but once again it 
could not cope with the fla- 
vourofthe crab. By now I was 


determined to find a match for 
this difficult crustacean. A trip 
into Whitby provided the 
answer with a bin-end bottle 
of an excellent full-flavoured, 
oaky, Portuguese white from 
Caves St Joao in the Bainada. 

Oysters, mussels and other 
fatty seafoods need acidic 
white wines capable of cutting 
through their oily richness. 
Muscadet is the one which 
springs to most people’s 
minds and. predictable choice 
though it may be. it is still one 
of the besL Avoid the rock- 
bottom priced Muscadets 
though, for these astringent 
enamel-crackers are an insult 
to oysters and tastebuds. 

Majestic Wine Warehouses 
are currently selling the deli- 
cious flowery '83 Chateau de 
TOiseliniere de la Ramee 
priced at £3.49. If you have 
never spent more than £2 a 
bottle on MuscadeL now is the 
time to trade up. 

Chablis is the other obvious 
choice, but its price is now 
ridiculously high. The only 
chablis bargain I know of is 
Marks & Spencer's admirable 


EncBaaumont 



'84 Chablis from the La 
Chablissiene co-operative, 
whose pale greeny-gold colour 
and steely, vegetal style is well 
worth its £5.50 price. 

A fine buttery Chardonnay, 
either from France or the New 
World, would be perfect with 
salmon which is rich, but not 
as taxing on the digestion as 
lobster or crab. One of the best 
value for money California 
Chardonnays available at the 
moment is Cl os du Bois's 
barrel-fermented '84 
Chardonnay from the Alexan- 


der Valley. I much enjoyed its 
pleasant touch of oaky spici- 
ness (Les Amis du Vin, 51 
Chiltem StreeL London Wl, 
£5.99.) 

The Sauvignon grape also 
has its place in the fishy 
spectrum and a fine Touraine 
Sauvignon is good with oily 
fish such as herrings and 
mackerel. 

The sweet meat of coquilles 
St Jacques also goes well with 
Sauvignon. Recently 1 tasted 
Henry Ryman’s '85 Chateau 
La Jaubenie Bergerac Sec, 
which is a cold-fermented 
blend of 25 per cent 
Sauvignon. 70 per cent 
Semilion and 5 per cent 
Muscadelle. I loved its won- 
derful elderflower and goose- 
berry scent, backed by a 
refreshingly crisp, full-fla- 
voured palate. 

Priced at £2.95 from Majes- 
tic Wine Warehouses, it is Mr 
Ryman's best Bergerac Sec 
vintage so far. And it would 
have gone down a treat in 
Robin Hood's Bay.

Tftis is Fuentes’s 
first novel, which 
he completed in 
1958, and which 
established him m 
the public eye as 
one of Latin 
America's fore- 
most .novelists. With a flick of 
his pen he moves from past to 
present Mexico, from scene of 
revolutionary murder to scene 
of trashy jet-set party. With a 
cursory nod in the direction of 
plot, the ebullient modernist 
attempts nothing less than a 
panoramic evocation of Mexi- 
co spanning time and place. 

The. story, such as it is, 
involves the fates of various 
characters from different sec- 
tions of society. An enigma 
.-^called Cienfiiegos pops up 
" 'Continually to interrogate the 
different characters about 
their lives, and like a living 
agent of memory, he prompts 
the re-enactment of the past. 

The characters' lives unrav- 
el in fragmented fashion, 
shaped by -the changing Mexi- 
can history. Federico Robles, 
a wealthy member of the 
ruling elite, recalls his impov- 
erished youth, his fight in the 
revolution, and his subse- 
quent-rise to power. Rodrigo 
the poet sells out to money 
and -society. Norma, poor but 
pretty, .marries Robles and 
pretends to be descended from 
the pre-revolution aristocracy. 

Norma's fete is, unfortu- 
nately. typically cliched. 
When she is spotted with her 
r -another, she pretends that her 
.'mother is a servant. Human 
nature looks pretty bad; and 
Puentes is hot on the low 
motive. 

He is hotter still on the art 
of theorizing. In Where the 
Air is Gear he wants to get to 


Where the Mr is Clear by 
Carlos Fuentes {Andrb 
Deutsch, £4.95) • 

the essence of things (life. 
Mexico). He puts intellectual 
characters into the book, and 
punctuates their discussions 
with mundane contextual de- 
tails like eating or smoking to 
make the talk seem real. 

“Zamacona pounded the 
table with his fist and knocked 
over Robles’s mineral water. „ 
Tm talking about reality! 
About the dispersion and 
infinite rupture of human 
unity, about the dark union to 
which love cannot attain, nor 
can self-contemplation, be- 
cause right down to the mini- 
mum oneness of his being, the 
individual is atomized. With- 
out the ability to admit that 
others are alive." 

The novel is a difficult place 
for ideas to be discussed: they 
need to be truly integrated and 
dramatized (Dostoevsky is a 
rare successful example). Most 
authors don’t manage it. To 
my mind Fuentes mils: the 
characters are mouthpieces, 
without a breath of autono- 
mous life, utterly two-dimen- 
sional The dialogue at the jet- 
set parties is almost worthy of 
Dallas. For Fuentes looks 
glibly at people, observing 
quickly from the outride, and 
attributing feelings to his char- 
acters that correspond to re- 
ceived notions of interior life 
(envy, ambition, the whole 
spectrum of low Dallas emo- 
tion). This glibness is belied 
(but not rescued) by the rich, 
fecund language. 

Indeed it may not be 
Fuentes’s intention to create 
believeable characters. Where 
the Air is Clear is dominated 



Anglican faith on trial 



Loving the 
Church of England 
has a great deal to 
do with loving 
England. Her Bible 
and Prayer Book 
have informed our 
^ language and liter- 
ature Her history is a central 
thread of the history of our 
country. Her tolerant spirit 
and inclusive nature are quali- 
ties that have marked our 
politics and distinguished our 
national character. 

No wonder these essays 
speak not of the Anglican 
Communion but of the 
Church of England. This part 
of God’s Church is a peculiar- 
ly national expression of the 
universal faith. It is the 
Church of George Herbert and 
Gilbert While - deep and 
rich, without befog lush or 
exotic. Of Lord Shaftesbury 
and Father Algy - wholly 
committed to improving the 
condition of the people, yet 
setting its face against political 
revolution. Of Nicholas 
Ferrari and Father Andrew — 
obviously catholic yet special- 
ly English. 

It is from the security of this 
generous tradition that Sister 
Anna can throw herself into 
her work for reconciliation in 


Why 1 Am StHJan Anglican 
edited by Toby Churton 
(Collins, £6.95) 

Belfast, and Roger Hooker can 
reach out to the multi -faith 
community of our urban cen- 
tre. Their contributions to this 
book show the Church of 
England at its best. A faithful 
community rich enough to 
make great deeds for God 
possible. As Toby Churton 
says in his introduction: “It is 
often true that traditionalists 
do the most radical things". 

Yet in the end this is a 
disappointing collection. It 
restates the traditional Angli- 
can position — most practical- 
ly in Frank Field’s chapter, 
and most persuasively in 
A.N. Wilson’s. But only m the 
odd waspish aside by Wilson 
does it refer to the increasing 
crisis in the Church of En- 
gland. We know why we are 
Anglicans now. But will we 
remain Anglicans in 10 years* 
lime? 

The position of the Church 
of England depends on our 
being not a sect but truly the 
Church of the nation. In turn 
that means that we have no 
doctri ne of our own — only the 
Bishops of the Apostolic Suc- 


cession. We are not a gathered 
group, but an open Church, 
serving all who live within our 
parishes. 

Now the essential nature of 
Anglicanism is under attack. 
The Bishop of Durham under- 
mines our adherence to the 
creeds of the Church. The 
Bishop of Manchester cam- 
paigns for Anglicans unilater- 
ally to change the historic 
order of the Church. The 
General Synod by its nature 
represents only the Anglican 
activists. Ecclesiastical de- 
mocracy and growing bureau- 
cracy drive us towards the 
inwardness of the sect and 
away from the outwardness of 
the Church. 

We are still Anglicans. But 
the question is whether we can 
go on being Anglicans, if the 
Church can no longer sav the 
creed honestly, if the ordina- 
tion of women breaks our link 
with the apostolic order 
shared with Rome and Ortho- 
doxy. and if the modernist and 
radical turn the Church of the 
nation into a pressure group. 
The Church of England that is 
being thrust upon us will not 
deserve testimonies Hke these. 

John Selwyn Gammer 


Thumbing through the synonyms 


Time traveller: Carlos Fuentes, flitting from revolution to the jet set in Mexico 


by a febrile, endlessly prolifer- 
ating lyricism: not a transpar- 
ent language, but an opaque, 
dark rhetoric that enacts and 
permits ambiguity, the image 
of slippery human experience. 

“As 1 read it, literature took 
on another dimension”, wrote 
Jos£ Donoso, Fuentes’s illus- 
trious contemporary. It freed 
Donoso from the “paralysis of 
good taste”, it opened doors, it 


investigated rather than doc- 
umented. This nueva novela 
did not assume that there first 
exists an intelligible reality for 
the novel to describe. 

For me this “virile lyr- 
icism” is an uncrafted, top- 
heavy prose that squanders its 
own meaning. Big ideas are 
chucked around, and not a 
great deal emerges of or with, 
distinction. Much is preten- 


tious and overblown. But 
Fuentes is not helped by Sam 
Hileman’s translation, which 
is startlingly awkward. Nor is 
he helped by the editor, cer- 
tain errors plunge the text into 
total obscurity (a danger any- 
way). A sentence Hke “For the 
first time she felt that she. 
slave to love, height” puzzled 
me for a long time.

ON THE AIR 


By Peter Waymark 



Long, hard road to stardom 




Cautions approach: Robert Bedford, the sheriff, in reluctant 
pursuit of his quarry in Tell Them Willie Boy is Here 


? FILMS ON TV 


Robert Redford is the perfect 
retort to the claim that Holly- 
wood doesn’t produce stars 
any more. It does and he is 
one of them. What is Out of 
Africa but an old-fashioned 
romantic movie exploiting the 
star appeal of Redford and 
Meryl Streep? 

The only difference between 
RedfoTd and the Cagneys and 
the Gables is that it took him a 
little longer to reach the top. 
But since he arrived he has 
been unassailable, surviving 
films that were mediocre and 
downright bad and even a 
two-year period when he 
made no films at alL 

The emergence of Redford 
can be traced in two pictures 
on BBC I next week. The 
Chase (Thurs, JOpm- 
12.10am) was made in 1965 
during bis formative period, 
when he was still pushing 
towards stardom. He had 
come up through the theatre, 
had a few false starts and first 
attracted notice playing oppo- 


site Natalie Wood in Inside 
Daisy Chter. 

For The Chase Redford 
found himself against stiff 
opposition. His co-star was 
Marlon Brando. Originally, 
Redford was to have played 
the Brando part, of the sheriff 
of a small Texan town where 
passions are running high on 
the news of an escaped prison- 
er. Instead, be played the 
convict. 

Wriuen by Lillian Heilman, 
the film was widely criticized 
for its melodramatic excess 
but has since gathered a cult 
following, mainly on account

of its director, Arthur Penn. 
As for Redford. he offers one 
of the more restrained perfor- 
mances in the film, turning in 
an intelligent, understated 
portrayal and leaving the 
mannerisms to Brando. 

By the time of Tell Them 
Willie Boy Is Here (Wed. 
10.25pm-midnighl) Redford 
was at the top, propelled there 
by his engaging performance 
opposite Paul Newman in 
Butch Cassidy and the 
Sundance Kid. Willie Boy was 
also a Western but of an 
entirely different ilk: leisurely, 
thoughtful and a box-office

flop. Already, though, it is 
looking the more substantial 
picture. 

It was written and directed 
by Abraham Polonsky, mak- 
ing a belated come-back after 
being put on the Hollywood 
blacklist in the early 1950s. 
Not many directors have to 
wait 21 years to make their 
next film but Willie Boy was 
Polonsky's first since a bril- 
liant little gangster movie 
called Force of Evil. 

Having turned down the 
chance to play the sheriff in 
The Chase. Redford played 
one this time. The Willie Boy 
of the title is a Paiute Indian 
whom Redford is obliged,

By 1969 the Western had 
done with depicting Indians as 
savages and was starting to 
explore the white man's guilt. 
Willie Boy does it better than 
most, helped by Bedford's 
deceptively phlegmatic perfor- 
mance. Star he may be but he 
is also, given the chance, an 
actor. 


Lives put under monstrous stress 


Drama beavyweighi of the 
week is Desire Under the 
Elms, Eugene O’Neill’s story 
of a New* England family 
divided by jealousy and greed 
(Radio 3. Tues, 7.30-9. 1 5pm). 
Robert Beatty makes his 
O'Neill debut at the age of 76, 
playing the fanner Cabot 

A monster.. who like many 
of his sort calls in God to 
justify his actions. Cabot has 
worked two wives to death 
and provoked his three sons to 
rebellion. Two make for the 
Californian gold fields, while 
the other forms a fateful 
friendship with Cabot’s new 
wife (Sarah Badel). 

The essence of Desire Under 
the Elms is the power of the 
writing and the graphic por- 
trayal of human beings tearing 
themselves apart Robin 


RADIO 


Glendinning’s play. 'Cnitnre 
Vultures (Radio 3. Fri. 9.05- 
10.20pm) is less easy to classi- 
fy. It is billed as a comedy, but 
since it deals with Northern 
Ireland the jokes are some- 
times too close for comfort 

Des McAIeer plays a pro- 
ducer of amateur drama 
putting on The Cherry Or- 
chard , which he has adapted 
as a metaphor for the decline 
of the Unionist ascendancy. 
Our man takes off for Dublin, 
another Cherry Orchard, a 
night with a girl friend and an 
encounter with a Provo folk 
singer. 

On the way, GJendinning 
becomes something of a cul- 
ture vulture himself tossing 


off references ;as if he was 
throwing confetti. His mes- 
sage seems to be that however 
much people uy to hide 
behind art political reality 
will keep breaking in. 

With In Time of War (Ra- 
dio 4. Wed. 3-3.47pm) we are 
on firmer and more familiar 
ground. It is the fourth in a 
series ' of autobiographical 
plays by the former Labour 
Arts Minister, Lord (Hugh) 
Jenkins, and through his fic- 
tional alter ego. Paul Davies, 
takes us to the end of the 
Second World War. 

The play builds episodically 
through such vignettes as 
dining in the Blitz, life on an 
RAF station and speaking for 
Labour candidates during the ■ 
the 1945 election. Behind the 
events are people and Jenkins 


skilfully evokes the strain of 
war on personal relationships. 

In The Seeds of Criminality 
(Radio 4. Wed. 7.45-8. 15pm), 
Peter Evans begins a two-part 
look at that old, ultimately 
un resolvable, question of 
whether criminals are born or 
made. The starling point of 
the latest nature/nurture de- 
bate is the American criminol- 
ogist, Dr Sam off Mednick. 
whose findings suggest that 
the basis for criminal behav- 
iour may be genetic. 

It is not a popular view, nor 
by any means universally 
accepted. As the programme 
demonstrates, there is still 
much support for the the 
“environmental adversity” 
theory which traces crime 
back to such factors as low 
incomes and poor housing. 


The history of British boxing is littered 
with tragic victims. Benny Lynch, Jackie 
Patterson, Freddie Mills — all champi- 
ons of the world and all dead long before 
their tune. 

In 64 Day Hero: A Boxer’s Tale 
(Channel 4* Thurs, I0.30pin-12.10am), 
director Franco Rosso' and novelist 
Gordon Williams investigate another 
casualty of tire noble art,. Randolph 
Turpin. He was the 23-year-old Mack 


ed the great Sugar Ray Robinson to taike 
the world middleweight title. 

It was an unexpected victory which 
bronght a special cheer to a nation still- 
numbed by austerity. The rest was anti- 
climax. Turpin held the title for only 64 
days and although boxing made him rich, 
he squandered his money and at the age 
of 3S he killed himself. 

The story is pieced together through 
interviews with Turpin s family and 
associates and 'the man himself is 
revealed in archive film of his fights and 
interviews. He comes across as a simple 
son! caught up in a world far too devious 
and dirty for him to cope with.

TELEVISION 


Imaginary Women (Channel 4, tomor- 
row, 9.15-1 0.35pm) is a good old feminist 
wallow by the decorative and cerebral 

Marina Warner and a dinner table of like 

minds including tire singer, Toyah 
Wfllcox, the fashion designer, Katherine 
Hamnett and the dancer/choreographer. 
Gaby Agis. 

The conversation is about how artists 
have used the female form and how 
national symbols, from the Statue of 
liberty to Britannia, have tended to be 
women. Mrs Thatcher inevitably crops 
up, though she is not tire sort of woman 
feminists like to claim as their own. The 
best quote is from Toyah who says real 

»’ ■ -1 


rebellion is chocking hobby's dirty pants 
back in his face. 

Deborah Kerr chucking anyone's pants 
at anyone is impossible to envisage, 
ftougi that may only be because the 
public stereotype has engulfed the pri- 
vate reality. I doubt if Marina and friends 
will take kindly to Deborah Kerr — Not 
Jusi An English Rose (BBC1, Tnes, 
30^0-ll^flpm), precisely because it 
stays with the stereotype. 

What emerges from Christopher 
Frayliug's anodyne interview, and a mass 
of dips, is an ordinary starstruck gin 
who never dreamed she would play 
opposite Gable and Tracy and became a 
trading lady for both. The programme is 
tiie trailer for a forthcoming season of 
Deborah Kerr films. 

The royal wedding is the cue for two re- 
peats, one reverential, the other some- 
what less so. The first is the late Sk Hew 
Wfaeldon's Royal Heritage (BBC2, Moa 
8-9pm), a stylish and dvilized journey 
through the treasures of the British 
monarchy. The second is Spitting Image 
(ITV, Fri, 1030-1 lpm), among whose 
targets are the royal bride and groom.

Surest! Kjtrxfia 


W hen he was nine 
years old he con- 
ducted the New 
York Philhar- 
monic at the 1939 World's 
Fair, he was the first American 
to conduct at Bayreuth; he has 
been music director of the 
Cleveland Orchestra and artis- 
tic director of the Vienna State 
Opera: and he has conducted 
the three most ' talked-about 
opera films: Don Giovanni, 
Carmen and Otelio. He is 
Lorin Maazel and it seems as 
if the only date he hasn't yet 
undertaken is conducting the 
first night of the Proms. That 1 
will be remedied on Friday. 

Tm thrilled, of course. The 
Proms are an extraordinary 
meeting of spirits. It's such a 
live, aware, passionate audi- 
ence. and I just love to watch 
the interaction with musicians 
who are taken aback by their 
audience's rare enthusiasm." 

It was with Mahler that 
Maazel made his London 
debut in 1961 at the Festival 
Hall. Now it's to be his Eighth 
Symphony. “1 choose my 
repertoire with all types of 
strange criteria in mind: lime 
of year, for example. 1 can’t 
imagine performing Mahler 9 
on July 18 - it’s inconceiv- 
able. But Mahler 8 is full of joy 
and life and hope." 

Mahler's “Symphony of a 
Thousand" is an appropriate 
choice for one whose biogra- 


On Friday when 


Lorin Maazel 


conducts the 


Proms it will be a 


double first night 


phy reads like a list of figures 
reeling out of the mouth of an 
over-zealous tour guide; a 30- 
monih long world tour with 
200 concerts in 22 countries; a 
30-year guest association with 
the National Orchestra of 
France in some 400 concerts; a 
23-year-old association with 
the Vienna Philharmonic in 
some 400 concerts and 40 
records . . . 

Maazel's latest idea is Clas- 
sic Aid: he was asked by the 
United Nations to organize a 
concert for refugee relief. On 
September 30 in Geneva, 40 
artists will perform for three to 
eight minutes each in a musi- 
cal marathon: “We have Solti, 
Mehta. Jessye Norman, Isaac 
Stem, Yehudi Menuhin. Peter 
Ustinov and I will share the 
presenting. Twenty-three tele- 
vision stations will receive it, 
which means an audience of 
some 500 million." The con- 
tributions from Norman and 
Solti will be beamed in from 
Chicago. 

Maazel (who once used a 


□eon-tipped baton) has been 
involved in earlier jamborees 
such as the televised First Day 
of Summer Music spectaculars 
Held this year and the year 
before (with 350 million view- 
ers): “We had Chinese instru- 
mentalists from the Great 
Wall, we had some Russian . 
cosmonauts live from space; 
we had brass players from the 
Niagara Fails". 

In December Maazel plans 
to conduct an orchestra called 
the World Philharmonic for 
the Red Cross in Rio de 
Janeiro. It's to be made up of 
one orchestral musician each 
from nearly 100 different 
countries (the- audience is 
expected to number 400 mil- 
lion). “I feel very strongly that- 
there's a vast audience there 
for classical music, and it has 
only to be presented in a way 
they can grasp, through media 
they’re accustomed to." 

He adds, more philosophi- 
cally: “Musicians do have 
power, provided that the na- 
ture of that power is apolitical. 
It's the power of communica- 
tion to all people through the 
language of music. I'm very 
keen, on the other hand, that 
artists should make 
statements." 

Maazel made his own per- 
sonal statement on June 7 
when he married his new wife, 
the German actress DietJinde 
Turban. They met at the

Bambis and got into conversa- 
tion, and have been talking 
ever since!” 

Whenever there’s time, that 
is. And, in a schedule like this, 
what time can there be for 
learning new works? The 
hawk eyes watch and momen- 


tarily dan behind the increas- 
ingly dark rings of shadow. “A

couple of months off earlier 
this year to work on a “musi- 


cal happening" based on the 
poetry of an Italian girl called 
Veronica Biancardi who died 
of leukaemia at the age of 13. 

And when time slows down 
again, what then? “Td love to 
improve my seamanship. Tm 
a Sunday sailor. All the pros 
shake their heads when they 
see me at the helm, you know. 
And then there’s a lot of 
poetry I’d like to read and re- 
read and leant by heart" 

The voice at last slows to a 
drawl. “Leopardi, Rimbaud, 


Emily Dickinson. -I'd like to 
m back and review all of 
them, all the things which In 
ray youth I found of signifi- 
canceand help. That's actual- 
ly what Td always hoped to 
become, y’know, a writer. Not 
a musician at all."

In some circles to can a Chris- 
tian a traditionalist is an insult. 
It is taken to mean one who 
cannot think but only plod in 
old footsteps. In other aides it 
is equally damaging to speak Ql 
Christians who undervalue tra- 
dition and assume the right to 
develop new ways in doctrine or 
order. 

They can be accused of deny- 
ing the authority of the gnat 
fellowship through the ages. 
This division of attitude is seen 
in the debates on the ordination 
of women, on the establishment 
of the Church of England, on the 
place of the Pope in the univer- 
sal church and on the propriety 
of movements like liberation 
theology. 

It is one of the greater modem 
divisions of the Christian fiun- 
ily, as hard to deal with within 
one communion as are the 
fences between the denomina- 
tions themselves.. 

But in a sense it is unreal We 
are all traditionalists because 
none of us starts on Christian 
pilgrimage as a total novice We 
do not nave a blank sheet of 
paper on which to start writing a 
personal creed drawn solely out 
of our personal discoveries. We 
begin with something given. It 
may be what has been taught in 
our family or our local church. It 
may be the guidance of a senior 
friend or a great book. 

Because Christianity is based 
on historical events we cannot 
escape that connection with the 
life of Christ which is called 
tradition, and which shapes our 
believing and our ethical deci- 
sions today. 

We all honour tradition. But 
we choose what to honour. As I 
live within the Reformed tradi- 
tion 1 know bow much weight 
has been given to the teaching of 
one group of theologians in the 


sixteenth and seventeenth cen- 
turies. It sometimes seems as 
though Reformed Christians 
have blanked out the history of 
the church before that period 
rather as the Bolsheviks tried to 
deny the culture of the Czars. 

We also localize tradition. 
What has happened in our local 
church over the last two genera- 
tions carries great weight with 
us. That splendid parade of 
whiskered clergy hung on the 
walls of the ministers vestry 
testifies to a strong local sense of 
continuity. 

The Roman Catholic church 
also selects its material to form 
its tradition. Great weight is 
given to all the .centralizing 
elements of church history in- 
the first (our centuries, and no 
weight to all the opposing 
tendencies which sought vari- 
ety, local autonomy and distinc- 
tive theological approaches. 

It is as though the fact that a. 
Roman authoritarian focus to 
the empire led to a rather similar 
focus to the church became the 
one great plank of sacred tradi- 
tion. A whole structure of 
hierarchy was built on the 
assumption that the context of 
an imperial tradition could be 
preserved as a divine ordinance. 

We select our tradition. Per- 
haps this is inevitable since our 
human limitation prevents us 
from receiving all that Christian 
pilgrims have discovered 
through the ages. A map which 
contains every detail of every 
garden bush is useless for a long 
journey. We surely cannot be 
blamed for this limitation. We 
need some simplicity in our 
guide. 

What is surely more question- 
able is any claim that our 
perception of tradition is the 
whole, for that breeds an exclu- 
siveness unjustified by the evi-

CREAL GRAHAM In memory of my 
dearest and most loyal friend who 
died this day July 12th 1984. Gra- 
ham remembered wilh eternal 
gratitude and affection by AlasUtr. 

M nrotn & unfading memory of 
Lieut: Alexander Simpson Smith

dencc. So it becomes the ground, 
of division. 

Such modesty about what we 
have received is necessary if we 
seek a realistic understanding ot 
the work of the Holy Spirit. The 
light and truth which Christians 
have received about God and 
his purpose for us are gifts of the 
Spirit This means that we 
approach the diverse expres- 
sions of Christian thought with 
expectation and reverence. But 
it does not mean that we can 
absolutize them. 

At no point have Christians 
received unmediated truth or 
expressed whai they have re- 
ceived in other than human 
forms. Always there has been 
. the limitation of the human 
framework. Often it has been 
the limitation of our words to 
contain the mystery of God, and 
the limitation of organization to 
reveal the body of Christ This is 
not to pour scorn on the history 
of faith but to acknowledge that 
former Christians. like our- 
selves, saw, knew and spoke 
only pan of the whole Glory of 
Goa. 

There is, of course, an excep- 
tion. Those who were with 
Christ in his earthly life saw and 
knew the face of God. "That 
which was from the beginning, 
which we have heard, vraich we 
have seen with our eyes, which 
wc have looked upon and 
touched with our hands” gave to 
the apostles their unique 
witness. 

It is as though all other 
approaches to the presence of 
God are mirrors, some a little 
dirty, some with a crack, some 
distorted but here the person 
seen is the one worshipped- This 
is the ground for the central 
theme of the Reformation about 
the authority of scripture above 
the traditions of the church.

But scripture is also the 
product of tradition, formed 
within the teaching ministry of 
the early church. Just as the 
Reformers claimed, that scrip- 
ture stood as judge of tradition, 
we need to go on and affirm that 
Christ, the living word of God. 
is above the words of the book. 
He is not contained or con- 
trolled by the book. As we know 
from John, “There are many 
other things that Jesus did; were 
every one of them u> be written. 
1 suppose the world itself could 
not contain the books that 
would be written;"' 

What we have received in 
scripture is sufficient to per- 
suade us of the nature and work 
of Christ, and this is the closest 
we come to the authority of 

-God’s way in the world of 
humanity. Beside that our 
churchly authority looks tempo- 
rary ana largely conditioned by 
the language of the age. God 
gives us enough light to point 
towards Christ. We know the 
quality of the Kingdom. We 
hear that melody which is an 
Easter alleluia. But always and 
everywhere the church is an 
“earthen vessel”, made out of 
the clay. It cannot absolutize its 
history, even that pan of the 
history we hold most precious. 

So development there mil 
surely be as we find for our- 
selves the beating gift of God in 
our strange world which threat- 
ens to tear itself apart. The 
greatest service of tradition is 
not to save us the risk oi 
discovery but to assure us of the 
extraordinary faithfulness of 
God in the mixture of 
humanity.

OBITUARY 

MR E. E. Y. HALES 
Revisionist papal historian 


Mr Edward Elton Young 
Hales. The historian whose 
publications over 20 years 
provide a sympathetic and 
critical reappraisal of the role 
of the papacy in the political 
history of Europe since 1789, 
died on July 1. He was 77. 

Teddy Hates was educated 
at Gresham's School. Holt, 
and Oriel College. Oxford, 
coming down in 1930 with a 
First in History. After Oxford, 
he spent three years teaching 
English history at Yale where 
he met his .American wife, 
Anne Porter. Returning home, 
he taught for a period at 
Uppingham where his pupils 
achieved an impressive record 
of university scholarships. 

He entered HM Inspector- 
ate of Schools in 1939. As a 
staff inspector he worked hard 
to alter the way in which 
history was taught, insisting 
that political and cultural 
history should not be consid- 
ered separately; and he soon 
inaugurated courses for teach- 
ers abroad in France and in 
Italy. He retired as chief 
inspector in J968, when he 
was created CBE. The only 
interruption in this pan of his 
career was three years as 
information officer in the 
Washington Embassy from 
1960. 

An Anglican by baptism, 
Hales became a Roman Cath- 
olic shortly after the war. He 
had a lifelong affection for 
Italy, and his new-found faith 
determined the direction of 
his historical interests. In 
1 954. PioSono. the first life in 
English of Pius IX. was a 
courageous and original at- 
tempt to understand the mo- 
tives of a man who started as a 
liberal and ended as the 
author of the Syllabus of 
Errors and as the doubtful 
beneficiary of the doctrine of 
infallibility. The Pope who 
emerges is consistent, serious, 


even noble, and, in redressing 
the balance against the "liber- 
al bias” in nineteenth-century 
history, the author scores 
many" shrewd hits ^against 
what has passed for historical 
orthodoxy. 

He explores the other side of 
the argument in Marini and 
the Secret Societies (1956). 
Here, the liberal hero is prop- 
erly cut down to size but 
Gregory XVI also appears as a 
fallible figure in his insistence 
on retaining temporal author- 
ity in the Papal States. 

Hales's understanding of 
the proper role of a modern 
Pope is tllu5vated in his 
Napoleon ttnd the Pope { 1962) 
where Pius VII retained spiri- 
tual freedom and authority 
although a prisoner of Napo- 
leon I; and in his last historical 
work. Pope John and his 
Revolution ( 1 965), where John 
XXIII is the spiritual leader 
who brought the church into 
reconciliation with the mod- 
ern world while sacrificing 
none of the essentials of the 
faith. 

Hales was a man of great 
humanity and gentleness, 
though his strong opinions 
could draw sharp rebukes. He 
had a carefully concealed eru- 
dition which made him a 
marvellous intellectual com- 
panion. He brought to every 
conversation a diffident, self- 
deprecating humour and an 
eagerness to praise others 
while insisting that his own 
work had no merit and was 
best ignored. 

He had a fine model railway 
which he cared for too much 
to show it to any but the most 
persistent. He must be the . 
only papal historian to have 
noticed that Pio Nono's 
carezza capella was one of the 
first railway carriages mount- 
ed on bogies, a point the Pope 
would have appreciated. 

He is survived by bis wife, a 
daughter and two sons. 


MR GODFREY ALLEN 


Sir James Richards writes: 

May 1, since I must be one 
of the few surviving members 
of the St Paul’s Night Watch 
(which was recruited in 1939, 
mostly from architects too old 
for military service, plus a few 
younger men like myself with 
jobs in London and free to 
spend nights in the cathedral), 
.add a few words to your 
obituary notice of Godfrey 
Allen published on June 25? 

Before war began, he was 
entrusted by the dean and 
chapter with the task of form- 
ing a Night Watch, which he 
then set about instructing, 
with great charm but single- 
minded discipline, in the tech- 
nique of fighting fires and, 
equally important, in the com- 
plicated backstage geography 
of the building. 

When no raid was on, we 
did not sleep, as your corre- 
spondent suggests, in the 
Whispering Gallery (which 
would have been dangerously 
exposed) or the triforium, but 
in the barrel arches of the 


crypt, with two of our number 
always patrolling the roofs. 

Bui I never saw Godfrey 
Allen sleeping; he was always 
on duty, was there almost 
every night, and the survival 
of tiie cathedral is due to him 
more than anyone else. 

Contrary to what your cor- 
respondent says, no incendi- 
ary bombs penetrated the 
roofs, although on one night, I 
recall, the Night Watch had to 
deal with as many as 38. 

On two occasions, high 
explosive bombs came right 
through the roofs and burst 
inside the building, causing 
enormous damage, but there 
was nothing even Godfrey 
Allen could have done about, 
these. 

I and my fellow members of 
the Watch admired him great- 
ly. He dedicated himself whol- 
ly to the responsibility he had 
been given. 

At the same time, he was 
one of the best scholars of all 
those who have served St 
Paul’s. You did not give his 
age. He was 94 when he died 


NIGEL STOCK 


Mr Alan Bates writes: 

■ Your obituary of Nigel 
Stock (June 24) very properly 
referred to him as an excellent, 
reliable and dependable actor, 
but did not seem to express 
how often he went bevond this 
into performances of creative 
individuality. 

I was lucky enough to work 
with him on two such occa- 
sions - in Simon Gray's 
Stagestruck, in which he gave 
a performance of enormous 
humour and inventiveness, in 
fact became the star of the 
show; and a few years later, 
when he gave a wonderfully 
grotesque and original inter- 
pretation of the Baron von 
Epp in the Chichester revival 

Marie-Lwrise Point, pro- 
prietor of La Pyramide, the 
oldest three-star restaurant in 
France, died on July 5 at her 
home in Vienne. She was 87. 

The restaurant obtained its 
. third star from the Afichdin 
Guide in 1935. 

During World War 1L it was 
a refuge for the Resistance, 
where a less ambitious, but 
equally appreciated fare was 
served.

These are only two occa- 
sions when Nigel's perfor- 
mances were as good as any 
that more acknowledged lead- 
ing actors, or stars, could hope 
to give. 

Because he played so many 
parts that were not in them- 
selves exceptional, and also 
because he appeared so often 
and became an absolutely 
integral part of films, theatre 
and television - and had a 
superb radio career of which 
he was very proud - he was, 
perhaps, taken too much for 
granted.

driver and three other people, 
including two children, were 
treated for streaming eyesand 
noses at East Surrey Hospital, 
RedhilL and released later. 

. Three cottages were evacu- 
ated near where the lorry was 
stopped, but during Thursday 
night firemen moved it to an 
unused section of the M23 
near Rebate. 

A spokesman for Guy’s 
Hospital, south-east London, 
said the chemical was only 
dangerous when highly con- 
centrated and very hot. 

Yesterday the Chemical In- 
dustries Association, which, 
represents companies involved 
In chemical manufacture or 
production, defended its safety 
record on Britain's roads. 

Mr Martyn Nntland, a 
spokesman for the association, 
raid: “In the last 12 years, a 
period in which 80,000 people, 
have died on the roads, only 


one person has been killed 
because of a chemical load." 

Every year about 80 million 
tonnes of chemicals are car- 
ried on Britain's roads and 
most of the traffic travels less 
than 50 miles en route from 
maker to user. 

About half of the chemicals 
are moved in balk, usually in 
liquid form, and the rest 
packaged in drums, cans and 
bottles. Less than half of the 
loads transported in bulk and 
only a qnarter of those pack- 
aged are hazardous, according 
to the association. 

Stringent safety regulations 
also apply to continental tank- 
ers or loads of chemicals being 
moved in Britain. Internation- 
al movements are subject to an 
agreement signed by most 
European countries known as 
the “ADR Convention", which 
corns labelling of chemicals 
and emergency procedures. 

Consignments not covered 
by the convention must comply 
with British regulations.

police have no leads, they are 
apparently investigating his 
business interests as 'a distrib- 
utor of imported motor vehi- 
cles - Land-Rover, Chevrolet 
and Jaguar reportedly being 
among them. His business fre- 
quently took him to the 
United States. 

Funerals in. Colombia must 
take place, within 24 hours of 
death, but the family succeed- 
ed in gaining a delay until 
today to allow his estranged 
North American wife, Patri- 
cia, to travel to Barranquilla 
from Ilinois. 

Mr Hutchinson became 
honorary consul three years 
ago, on the death of his father, 
an immigrant from Jamaica, 
who had held the post for 
many years. Mr Hutchinson 
had worked as vice-consul 
under his father. As consul, he 
received a small retain er.

were killed as they tried to flee. 

On Thursday morning six 
suspected ANC guerrillas were 
shot dead near the rural town 
of Alldays in the Northern 
Transvaal police said. A sev- 
enth escaped but is believed to 
have been wounded. 

In Soweto, at least two black 
men were reported killed in 
fighting yesterday between 
township residents and Zulu 
migrant workers, according to 
the Bureau for Information 
and independent sources. 

• HARARE: Sir Geoffrey 
ended his mission to Zambia, 
Zimbabwe and Mozambique 
yesterday, speaking of “cau- 
tious hope" that the parties to 
the violence in South Africa 
will agree to peace talks (Jan 
Raath writes). 

He said before he left 
Maputo, the Mozambique 
capital, that he had achieved 
some success in his talks with 
the leaders of the three states. 


He had been trying to win 
their support for -a mandate 
from the EEC to open talks 
between Pretoria and its black 
opposition. 

Sir Geoffrey spent 90 min- 
utes yesterday with President 
Machel of Mozambique, who 
made no comment afterwards. 

However, Mr Joaquim 
Chissano. his Foreign Minis- 
ter, said that he believed the 
EEC mission to be in good 
faith. “But we think that in the 
light of the South African 
Government’s past behaviour 
it is most unlikely that the 
regime will create a dialogue. 

“If someone finds some 
magic formula that can change 
the minds of the South Afri- 
can Government then we shall 
applaud." 

• NAIROBI: Uganda has de- 
rided not to send a team to the 
Commonwealth Games, in 
protest at Britain's refusal to 
support economic sanctions 
against South Africa (Charles 
Harrison writes).

After the long, wet Spring, 
growth of many plants has been 
affected. In north London last 
week we had-a torrential down-* 
pour which laid stems of the 
new. large-flowered double flori- 
bunda roses flat on the ground, 
something that has never hap- 
pened before: We have lilies 
nine feet high and only just in 
bud. So it may be wise to take a 
turn round the garden and if 
necessary give support to plants 
that have grown taller than 
usual. New growths of climbing . 
roses should be lied to a support 
when they are two or three feel 
long. If left they may be broken 
away at the base in a heavy 
storm. If necessary, tie them to a 
cane until they are long enough 
to secure to the wires or mam 
support. 

As they say in the army, time 
spent in reconnaissance is never • 
wasted, if only because one can 
assess the urgency of the various 
tasks that need to be done. A 
turn round the garden my save 
hours oftime and much effort. If 
you hoc when there are no 
weeds, there never will be any 
weeds. 

During dry weather weeds on 
lawns seem to grow faster than 
the grass, so treatment with 
selective weedkillers is called for 
RJi.

Standard wins 

backing of 
big investors 


By Graham Seaxjeant, F i nancial Editor 


Standard Chartered’s 
chances of escaping the £1.3 
biUion takeover bid from 
Lloyds Bank, improved dra- 
matically yesterday as new 
shareholders from the Far 
East and Australia built up 
holdings of nearly 30 per cent 
in the international banking 
group only hours before the 
offer was due to close. 

But the new shareholders 
are likely to change the devel- 
opment of Standard Chartered 
radically if it remains 
independent 

Sir Yue-Kong Pao. one of 
the most powerful financial 
figures in Hong Kong and a 
long-standing customer of 
Standard Chartered, bought a 
further 5 per cent to bring his 
stake to 15 per cent mainly 
through companies in Liberia. 

At the same time, in a burst 
of buying that lifted Standard 
shares 12p to 789p for a short 
time, companies in the Aus- 
tralian Bell Group assembled 
astake that eventually reached 
7.4 per cent 

Bell is the vehicle of Mr 
Robert Holmes & Court the 
Australian financier who has 
initiated or intervened in a 


number of British takeovers. 
Standard Chartered financed 
his takeover attack on Broken 
Hill Proprietary, Australia's 
biggest company. 

The new shareholders had 
offered verbal backing to 
Standard’s chairman. Lord 
Barber,- or the group managing 
director, Mr Michael 
McWllliam, and are assumed 
to back the board's fight for 
independence from Lloyds. 
“We are quietly confident" 
Mr McWilliam said last night 

Lloyds’ offer is not due to 
close until I pm today, and the 
final result may not be an- 
nounced until late in the 
afternoon. But stock market 
dealers now seem convinced 
that the bid will fail. Mr 
McWilliam said he bad re- 


most of which would need to 
accept for Lloyds to win. At 
777p, Standard shares now 
stand £1 lower than the value 
Lloyds puts on its alternative 
offer. 

Mr McWilliam accepted 
that the new shareholdings 
would present a fresh chal- 
lenge to the board. “You could

Sir. Kenneth Benin, chair- 
man of the Securities and 
Investments Board, yesterday 
hit back at recent criticism 
that the running costs of SIB 
and -the system of self-regula- 
tion set up by the Financial 
Services Bill were too high. 

In one oFhis most aggres- 
sive speeches since becoming 
ZSIB’s chapman. Sir Kenneth 
drew attention- to the far 
higher staff and running costs 
of the Stock Exchange and.the 
American Securities and Ex- 
change Commission (SEC). 

He said there was no evi- 
dence to suggest that a statu- 
tory system along the lines of 
the SEC would be cheaper or 
more efficient. 

Sir Kenneth said at the 
London Business School' “I. 
make no apology for the likely 
overall regulatory cost for the 
industry, including the costs at 
the level of individual busi- 
nesses when the Bill takes full 
effect 

Sir Kenneth said that he had 


By Our City Staff

ies and the assumption that a folly 
esterday statutory commission could 
rriticism somehow be cheaper, clearer 
s of SIB or more effective."

aggres- people and had costs of more

ng costs such as the New. York Stock 
Exchange and, even though its 
geographical reach was greater 
than SIB’s would be, “its 
no product responsibilities are by 

a statu- fer less than will be ours." 


Sir Kenneih pointed out development* Yesterday's 
that the Stock Exchange “re- drop, n Gneycoat s share pnee 


corded administrative and 
property costs of nearly £22 
million in the year to last 
March and had a staff of 1,775 
at the end of the year. 

He added that SIB estimat- 
ed its annual running costs at 
£6 million, and it would have 
a staff of about 100. 


Amendments on way for 
Financial Services Bill 


The Financial Services Bill 
which introduces the system 
of self-regulation for the in- 
vestment industry, remains 
well on target for an October 
Royal Assent following a com- 
fortable passage through the 
House of Lords yesterday. 

At the same time, the 
Government announced a 
number of amendments to be 
brought in at the committee 
stage later this month. The 
commercial dealings of corpo- 
rate treasurers with related 
companies will be excluded 
from the definition of invest- 
ment business in the BiU, 
while a new regime will be 
introduced to the Bill wluch 
recognizes the professional na- 
ture of money market 
dealings. 

One potential dark cloud 


the question of place. 


insider-dealing with a number 
of the Lords expressing dissat- 
isfaction with the existing 
provisions. These are likely to 
be reconsidered at the com- 
mittee stage. 

. The Government is still 
considering representations 
from the International Securi- 
ties Regulatory Organization, 
which wants the Bill to be 
amended to allow price stabi- 
lization of new equity issues. 

This is the technique; com- 
monly used in the Eurobond 
market, whereby issuers of 
securities hold up their price 
for the first few weeks of 
dealing by making competing 
bids for them. 

The indications are that the 
Government is likely to con- 
cede the point, but will impose 
a firm time limit on the period 
in which, stabilization can take 


to 254p from the offer price of 
I50.7p. based on a Greycoat 
price of 274p a share, nar- 
rowed the gap with PHITs 
price rising to 15lp. 

Greycoat is offering 55 of its 
shares for every 100 PHIT 
shares or a cash offer of 250p a 
share. Pearl Assurance, which 
holds 18.8 per cent of PHIT 
has, like PHITs directors, 
rejected Greycoat's offer, de- 
spite the fact that amicable 
talks have been held between 
the two property companies 
for some time. 

PHIT says that an institu- 
tional shareholder should an- 
nounce its intention of voting 
against the Greycoat offer 
soon, putting almost a quarter 
of the shares in PHITs camp. 

Greycoat would not say ifil 
would increase its offer or buy 
shares in the marfceL Both 
sides were hoping for an 
agreed merger but differences 
over asset values and manage- 
ment styles resulted in a 
breakdown of talks. 

Greycoat would benefit 
from a merger by increasing 
its asset base and bringing 
gearing to 30 to 60 per cent 
allowing it to hold 100 per 
cent of its development prof- 
its. PHIT. however, argues 
that its portfolio is superior to 
Greycoat's where the compa- 
ny holds an interest in its 
major schemes and not a 100 
per cent interest 





say we are between the devjl 
and the deep blue sea," be 
said. “They have bought at 
about 800p per share so that 
management is clearly aware 
that it has to perform." 

He said he had spoken to Sir 
Yue-Kong and hoped that he 
would become more closely 
associated with the bank. Sir 
Yue-Kong is likely to be 
invited to join the board. 

The latest supporters are 
likely to have been impressed 
by Standard Chartered’s de- 
fence document which indi- 
cated that the group could be 
worth about 940p a share if 
operations in California and 
South Africa, the head office 
and some other subsidiaries 
were sold off. 

“There will have to be a new 



ceived support from some of postwar agenda if the bid fails 
the institutional shareholders, and we are going to have to 


rethink a number of our 
policies." Mr McWilliam ac- 
cepted last night

the group are likely to be 
separated into different banks

Society receipts at two-year low 


Building societies main-

The societies* gross ad-

The lending has, however,

Prime 
rates 
cut 
to 8% 

From Bailey Morris 
Washington 

US banks cut their prime 
rates yesterday after the Feder- 
al Reserve Board derided on 
Thursday to lower the dis- 
count rate by halfa point to 6 
percent. 

Chemical Bank of New 
York was the -first big money 
centre hank to cm its prime 
lending rate to S per cent from 
S.5 per cent. 

Analysis said, however, 
that, considering the weak rate 
of US economic growth — 
estimated at 2 per cent in the 
second quarter — there may be 
one and perhaps two more 
half-point cuts in the discount 
rate in the three months 
leading up to the raid-term 
elections. 

“The Administration is 
putting intense pressure on the 
Fed to stimulate the econo- 
my," a White House official 
said. 

The Fed cut is expected to 
pui pressure on Japan and 
West Germany to join the 
move toward lower rates. 

The Fed, citing its concern 
over the sluggish American 
economy, acted alone to cut 
rates to their lowest level in 
almost nine years. The action 
was approved unanimously in 
the belief that it would not 
only stimulate growth but also 
force other industrialized na- 
tions to follow suit, officials 
said. 

At the same time, however, 
some officials continued to 
express strong concern that 
unilateral action to lower rates 
would undermine the dollar 
which has fallen dramatically 
in recent weeks. This was the 
reason the Fed derided to 
move cautiously, lowering the 
discount rate by only one-half 
point rather than the full point 
many analysts had expected. 

The Administration gave a 
warning this week that it was 
tired of waiting for Japan and 
West Germany to take action 
to stimulate growth in their 
economies in the spirit of the 
Plaza Accord negotiated by 
the Group of Five nations last 
September. ■ 

The Fed, which met private- 
ly for two days this week to set 
US monetary policy for the 
rest of the year, apparently 
agreed that further action was 
necessary. 

“A consensus has emerged 
that we can force the Japanese 
and the West Germans to lake 
action. The point was made 
that their trade flows will 
suffer if their currencies rise 
markedly against the dollar 
which is likely to happen if 
they keep their rales up," 
Administration officials said. 

Mr Paul Volcker, the Fed 
chairman, may provide clues 
to the central bank's thinking 
when he goes lo Capitol Hifi 
on July 23 to give a mid-year 
review of monetary policy.

per cent holding in Sandgste, 
the investment vehicle for his 
12 auction sites, to Cox Enter- 
prises. before the end of this 
month, which is when BCA 
roles fts books off for the year. 

Mr John Felthaim. deputy 
chairman of BCA^ said last 
night: “The deal was originally 
struck in April and since then 
it has been drifting on. So we 
started to take another look at 
the business and realized it 


was doing pretty good. We 
offered to renegotiate the price 
but they did not want to, so we 
slopped it.** 

Mr Fellham said that BCA 
would consolidate the 
businesss. “We have been 
very pleased.with the way it 
has been performing during 
the second half of the year.” 

BCA stood to pick up a 
profit of about £1 5 million, by 
the sale of the auction sites 
which, despite receiving con- 
siderable management time, 
have not achieved the results 
expected, mainly because of 
the difficult market rather 
than anything fundamentally 
wrong with the business. 

Profits this year are expect- 
ed to show a considerable 


improvement on the £2.2 
million last time, after the 
marked improvement in 
conditions. 

BCA is planning to buy the 
27 per cent not already owned 
at a cost of about £13 million. 

Cancellation of the deal 
surprised the company’s stock 
market followers. One analyst 
said : “It means that the 
company will have a lot less 
cash to use on expanding its 
business in the UK. 

“it also indicates that the 
chairman has not been as 
derisive about matters as he 
might have been. Neverthe- 
less, the company will look a 
lot cleaner once it has taken 
complete control of the US 
operation;”

Ratcliffe in BBA deal 


S Ratcliffe is to buy Auto- 
motive Products' springs divi- 
sion from BBA Group and to 
make a rights issue. Agree- 
ment in principle has been 
reached for Ratdiffe to issue 
1.24 million shares to BBA. 

BBA will receive £80,000 of 
8 per cent unsecured loan 
stock 1992/96 and will sub- 
scribe at par for £170,000 of 
the stock, convertible into 
Ratcliffe ordinary shares at 
, 300p a share between 1988-92. 

The springs division had 
net assets of approx £500,000 


on December 31 and attribut- 
able pretax net profits for T985 
of about £150,000. On com- 
pletion. and following a one- 
for-one rights issue, BBA will 
hold 29.9 per cent of 
Ralriifle’s enlarged share 
capital. 

Becaiise of the size of the 
acquisition, the directors have 
.requested the Stock Exchange 
to suspend Ratcliffe's listing. 
Once Ratdiffe shareholders 
have received full particulars 
of the transaction and pro- 
posed rights issue, the listing is 
expected to be restored.

The stage for TV-am’s debut 
on the Unlisted Securities 
Market has been set in style 
by Thames TV. Investors 
who have already made mon- 
ey on Thames will doubtless 
be rushing for shares. They 
should not be disappointed. 

TV-am is not raising any 
money for itself; as more than 
90 per cent of the shares are 
being sold by United News- 
papers. The rating has been 
pitched at a price which gives 
United a near £10 million 
profit on its investment after 
three years, yet allows for a 
healthy premium when deal- . 
mgs start 

The prospective p/e ratio, 
assuming forecast profits of 
£73 million and 35 per cent 
tax, is 8.7. However, accumu- 
lated tax losses mean actual 
tax. will be around 10 per 
cent, added to which the City 
expects the company to make 
at least £8 million profits. 

The prospective p/e then 
comes down to not much 
more than 5, compared with 
a prospective p/e for Thames 
of just under 9. 

There are important differ- 
ences between TV-am and 
Thames. TV-am’s franchise 
expires in 1991, three years 
later than Thames’s. Its ap- 
peal to advertisers comes 
from its national coverage 
and high proport i on of young 
housewife viewers. Food and 
consumer products advertis- 
ers can catch young mothers 
before they go out shopping. 


the 1 30p offer price is expecl- 
g when dealing starts on July 


Evered Holdings 


The 'Abdullah brothers who 
run Evened are fist movers. It 
took them just four days to 
place their 15.1 per cent stake 
in McKechnie Brothers after 
the failure of their bid on 
. Monday. 

. If Evered could place its 
stake- in TI as quickly the 
stock market might take a 
kinder view of the company. 
In recent months its share 
price has been dogged -by 
uncertainty over its inten- 
tions towards TL But Evered 
has made a paper profit of 
mote than £16 million 
on its investment 
Since launching the bid for 
McKechnie, Evered’s share 
price has fallen from 336p to 
240p yesterday. While inves- 
tors may be disappointed at 
the bid’s failure, the extent of 
the fill is difficult to explain. 

The profit on the holding 
m TI is worth 40p a share. 
Stripping this out from the 
market price leaves the shares 
trading on less than 10 times 
prospective earnings, assum- 
ing profits rise from £7.87 
million to £10.5 million be- 
fore tax this year and the tax 
charge remains low. ' 

The shares are unlikely to 
remain depressed for long. 


Navy is sailing close by, 
having acquired nearly 21 per' ! 
cent of Berry Trust This has 
given rise to speculative 
hopes of the Merchant Navy 
becoming a long-term invest 
tor in GT. The Merchant 
Navy (s clearly confident 
about the growth prospects of 
fond management groups. 


GTs funds under manage:

Dacia Concessionaires: Mr 
Peter Dkken becomes manag- 
ing director and Mr Peter 
Payne and Mr James Asprey 
deputy managing directors.

TV-am is the only indepen- 
dent television contractor to 
allow advertisers to book 
campaigns well in advance 
through its policy of non pre- 
emption.' It is also the only 
one with controllable costs, 
as its coverage is live and it 
does not make blockbusters 
for future viewing. Unlike 
Thames, it will not be caught 
by the exchequer levy on 
overseas sales, as it has none. 

The ratings war with the 
BBC is being won hands 
down by TV-am with 62 per 
cent of the viewers. There 
seems little prospect of push- 
ing up this share by a 
significant margin, although 
the overall market is still 
growing. Prospects for in- 
creasing profits through 
charging higher advertising 
rates also look good. 

A healthy premium over 


Every doud is meant to have; 
a silver lining For GT Man.-' 
agement, which is joining the 
stock market via an offer for 
sale, the cloud is United 
Kingdom Provident Institu- 
tion, whose troubles were the 
trigger for the share sale; the 
silver lining .could be the 
Merchant Navy’s pension 
funds. 

UKPI owns 5.2 per cent of 
GT directly. In addition, it 
has a 29 per cent 
shareholding in Berry Trust, 
which is selling 6,4 million- 
shares in GT as part of the 
flotation, and retaining 5.6 
million shares. It is widely 
assumed that the stakes 
beonging to both UKPI and 
Beny Trust, together ac- 
counting for 16.9 per cent of 
the enlarged share capital, 
will change hands in' the near 
future. 

At first right this uncertain- 


mem have grown from £821 
million in 1982 to £3.4 billion 
on March 31, 1986. Over the ‘ 
same ' period profits have 
grown even fesier — from 
£1.38 million to £7.03 million 
before tax — to . the point 
where they account for 2.09 
per cent of funds under 
management • j; 

Throughout that period 
GT has benefited from rising 
stock markets worldwide. 

. While the risk of world-., 
wide; bear markets Is nit> 
doubted, the effect would be 
restricted by the underlying 
growth in funds managed by 
independents such as GT In , 
particular, GT is hopeful of 
fauildingonitsexistinginter- 
natioual base. 

Baring Brothers and 
Cazenove, the advisers, have 
clearly had : to balance, the 
attractions of the internation- 
al spread against other fac- 
tors. In particular, they will 
have taken info account the 
low proportion. of unit trust 
business, which accounts- for 
15 . per cent of fluids under 
management Unit trusts are - 
more profitable than pension 
fond management,, and so 
their management tends to be 
higher rated. 

The balancing act has been 
performed with great accura- 
cy. GT is coming to the 
market on a historic multiple 
of 17.6 times earnings, dilut- 
ed for share options — exactly 
the same multiple accorded 
to Henderson Administra- 
tion — which has less interna- 
tional business but -more unit 
trusts. 

But there is a cautionary 
note. Unlike Henderson, GT 
suffered from, a' net loss of 
funds last year, so that the 
reported 19 per cent increase 
in binds under management 


simply reflected the excellent 
performance of stock markets 
worldwide. 

This may not Have worried 
the Merchant Navy. But oth- 
er investors might be reluc- 
tant -to buy shares so long as 
GT is losing funds. 


S r would seem to damage the 
oiation. But the Merchant

COMMENT 


US rate cut catches 
markets on the hop 

Not even the overnight reduction in rate reductions. Karl Ono Poehl, a 
the United States discount rate could Bons toker among central bankers, 
cheer the London markets yesterday, ^as been seeing off all those who 
Equities drifted to the end of the suggest that German rates should 
«/wit mt at im* tkat - come down. The Americans ieei 

entitled to expect a little more help 
from the Japanese but, just a few 
hours before the US reduction, the 
Bank of Japan Governor, Satoshi 


account, grateful at least that the 
dramas of earlier in the week were 
over. The gilt market, which has been 
in a collective sulk since Monday, 
found a little more to be upset about, 
with the announcement of an £800 
million tap- 

Only in the money markets, albeit 
with one eye on the shaky pound, was 
there a little optimism. The discount 
rate cut and the relatively generous 
nature of the Bank of England’s 
lunchtime gilt-edged sale-and-re- 
purchase operation, spread a little 
happiness. Rates edged down by an 
eighth. 

The timing of the discount rate cut 
was, in the end, a surprise. A 
reduction had been expected before 
Paul Vofcker, the Federal Reserve 
Board chairman, gives his regular 
testimony to Congress in 10 days. But 
Thursday's move, with little prepara- 
tion by the markets, looked sudden. 

llie Fed chairman has been under a 
lot of pressure from the Administra- 
tion. Donald Regan, the White House 
chief of staff and Volcker’s old 
sparring partner when he was Trea- 
sury Secretary, was the latest to turn 
the screw this week. 

The Fed's move, based on evidence 
of US economic weakness, is a far cry 
from the coordinated Group of Five 


Sumita, had apparently ruled out 
lowering his rate from 3.5 per cent 
This position may not, however, be 
tenable if the yen starts heading 
skywards. 

The spotlight may not yet be off Mr 
Volcker. He is not above pressurizing 
other countries with another discount 
rate cut in the coming weeks. And this 
would do the latest gilt-edged offering 
from the Bank of England no harm at 
all. Yesterday's tap, £800 million of 
8‘A per cent Treasury loan stock 2007, 
will help funding by nearly £200 
million in the July banking month 
and by nearly £600 million in August 

The market was not in the mood to 
welcome it. Oil hah the pound sliding 
again. It fell, in spite of lower US rates, 
more than a cent to $1.5062 and — 
perhaps more important - by a 
pfennig lower to DM3.2881. The 
sterling index fell 0.3 to 74.6. The 
inflation figures, were good. But 
another measure, helpfully provided 
by the Treasury, was less encouraging. 
Excluding mortgage rates, inflation 
rose from 3.1 per cent in May to 3.3 
per cent last month. 


Societies pay for equality 


The Treasury is demanding a substan- 
tial tax price for the favour of allowing 
building societies to compete on more 
equal terms with banks. 

After imposing extra taxation on 
the societies’ gilt-edged investment in 
a particularly abrupt way, the Govern- 
ment now wants to twist the societies' 
tails again in the name of even- 
handed fiscal neutrality. The Treasury 
has sponsored an amendment to the 
1 986 Finance Bill on the procedure for 
collecting composite rate tax (CRT) 
on building society deposits. Some of 
the larger societies think the amend- 
ment. due to be debated next Thurs- 
day, is definitely not cricket. 

From tax year 1 986-87 on, CRT will 
be paid quarterly in arrears for both 
building societies and banks. Few 
have any quarrel with this. The 
amendment, however, would catch 
the tax on interest for the period 
between the end of the societies’ 
financial year, in most cases Decem- 
ber 31 1985, and the end of the tax 
year on April 5. Under the old 
arrangement, they would have paid 
the whole of the year’s CRT liability 
in the following July. 

Woolwich Equitable challenged a 
ruling by the Inland Revenue in the 
High Court, but Ian Stewart, the 


Economic Secretary, was not prepared 
to leave the matter to legal argument 
— hence the plan to enshnne the ruling 
into the Finance Bill. 

The amendment leaves the Wool- 
wich and Leeds building societies with 
extra tax bills for the change-over year 
of £65 million and £74 million 
respectively. They face bigger bills 
because their financial years ended in 
September rather than December. 
These figures, however, do not take 
. into account Corporation Tax relief at 
1985 rates. The real draw on their 
reserves will therefore be 60 per cent 
of the gross cost The BSA values the 
Revenue’s call on its members’ re- 
serves at some £435 million net. 

The biggest losers are the members 
of those societies with financial years 
ending early in the tax year. Their 
investment policy could well be 
affected by the depletion of cash 
reserves. 

The arbitrary nature of the tax 
recoupment described by one exas- 
perated executive as “like being taxed 
by the alphabetical position of your 
surname”, upsets the societies as 
much as the alleged retrospection the 
Government is trying to put into the 
BUI.

How you 


Thousands of British Telecom 
shareholders this weekend 
must be feeling like lovers 
whose steamy courtship has 
been interrupted by a blazing 
row. 

Last Monday their prize 
investment — for many of 
. them their first foray into the 
stock market — turned sour on 
.them and slumped by 19p to 
198p, their largest one-day 
.fall. 

Those shareholders who 
were allocated the maximum 
800 shares when BT was 
privatized in late 1984 saw the 
■value of their share portfolios 
slump by £152. fn aJL around 
£1.2 billion was wiped ofTBTs 
market capitalization. Since 
touching a peak of 278p on 
April 2, BT shares have lost a 
quarter of their value. 

But like those plate-throw- 
ing scenes which serve to 
remind us that no love is 
perfect, Monday's sharp fall 
might have taught sharehold- 
ers a lesson well worth reraem- 
jbering — that share

Sorting the BT share applications: Now the price is sorting itself out 


f? 1 . 

I.* : N 


ISTma MAR- APR MAY JUN 




The absence of stockbrokers 
during Royal Ascot, Henley, 
Wimbledon and Cowes Week 
is trailed out seasonally as an 
explanation for low market 
turnover. 

It is doubtful whether much 
of this got through to BTs 
prospective shareholders dur- 
ing the euphoria of the float. 

The political necessity to 
ensure that the issue, the 
largest ever on the London 
Slock Exchange, was a howl- 
ing success meant that the 
nation was bombarded with a 



risk)' things, subject to a wide 
variety of influences ranging 
from the obvious, such as a 
change in a company's pros- 
pects, to the seemingly absurd. 
- Ask the seasoned stock mar- 
ket reporters who speak to 
jobbers and brokers several 
times a day and they will 
happily regale you with exam- 
ples of the excuses they hear 
for the market's behaviour. 


Buoyant market 
from day one 


for the market's behaviour. 

These can range from the 
outlook for interest rates to 
the political stability of the 
Philippines or the pronounce- 
ments of the favourite Ameri- 
can economic guru of the 
moment 


huge public relations hype 
designed to widen the much 
vaunted “share-owning” de- 
mocracy as much as possible. 

At the same time the flota- 
tion price was kept low 
enough to ensure a healthy 
oversubscription, and the in- 
stitutions were deliberately 
starved of stock in the alloca- 


tion, thereby ensuring a buoy- 
ant market from day one. 


am market Jrom day one. 

The shares'' were priced at 
130p but investors needed to 
find only a 50p down pay- 
ment. And there were added 
incentives in the form of 


telephone bill vouchers or 
bonus shares. 

For the Government and 
shareholders, the issue got off 
to a start that was hard to beat 
An opening day premium of 
48p ensured quick profits of 
up to £380 for investor who 
sold immediately. With the 
help of a rising market, BT 
shares continued to make 
good progress until in fully 
paid form they peaked in 
ApriL 

Since then a number of 
factors — business, political 
and economic — have com- 
bined to send BT shares 
sliding back to less than £2. 

The firsl has been a realiza- 
tion that Mercury, BTs rival 
telepehone network, is going 
to prove far more troublesome 
than originally thought. 

Dismissed at first as a flea 
on an elephant's back. Mercu- 
ry now looks like being a 
powerful competitor for the 
lucrative business end of the 
telecommunications market. 

The second reason — and 
the one that sent BT shares 
reeling last week - was a 
growing fear that a Labour 
government would renational- 
ize the company, paying 
shareholders cost price for 
their shares. 


Although this possibility 
was dearly stated in the 
original offer prospectus, a 
Sunday newspaper report out- 
lining Labour's plans, includ- 
ing tbe alternative of 
conversion into non-voting 
bonds, brought the topic to 
mind once again. 

Enthusiasm for BT shares 
had also b een d ampened by 
fears that OFTEL, the watch- 
dog set up to keep an eye on 
BTs practices, was so opposed 
to some of the giant firm’s 
pricing policies that it might 


The roaring force 
has now died down 


seek a change in the price 
control rules laid down by 
parliament 

However, fears in this direc- 
tion were largely quelled in a 
speech deliver ed on Wednes- 
day by the OFTEL director 
general. . Professor Bryan 
Cars berg, who said he would 
look only to modify BTs 
licence if its prices reached 
exorbitant levels. His remarks 
helped the shares rebound to 
208p on Thursday. 

Finally, the roaring force 
that propelled the stock mar- 
ket to giddy heights in April 


appears -to have died down; 
dampening the enthusiasm for 
equities in general. Neverthe- 
less. BT shares have seriously 
underperformed the market 
for some lime. 

An investment of £1.000 a 
■ year ag o in stocks making up 
the FT all-share index would 
have yielded £1,310 today, 
while the same amount in BT 
shares would have left you 
with just £940. 

So should you hang on to 
your BT shares? The first 
point to remember is that, 
despite the recent fall, they 
have still provided a worth- 
while return on the issue price 
of 1 30p, especially as this was 
payable by instalments. 

* in addition, investors who 
opted for bonus shares which 
they are due to pick up in 
November 1987 rather than 
telephone bill vouchers are 
going to get the worst of both 
worlds if they sell out now. 

, According to BT-watcher 
Jack Summerscale, of stock- 
brokers de Zoete & Bevan, it 
all depends on how you rate 
the political risk attached to 
BT. in his view, the. recent 
price slump - has made the 
shares a good bet — at today's 
price they are cheap, he says — . 
and the speech by Professor 


Carsberg made him even more ■ 
enthusiatic. • - v 

But -as Mr Summerscate 
admits, assessing tbe political , i- 
outlook is particularly diffi-r , 
cult for those of us who do not y: : . 
have daily access . to* r.. 
swingometers. Even if Labour 
does win the next election; .... 
renationalizing BT may slip; 
down its list of priorities or,!? 
even disappear altogether. - . 

“My own .judgment is that: -, 
the political risk is not as great:. 
as the scare stories that have- » 4 
been' surfacing in the past two-, v

of activity' from -Labour tnajn

If the big financial instim-.V

The Equitable has recently had an Educa- 
tional Trust established (with all the tax advan- 
tages of charitable status), that^ designed to save 
you thousands of pounds on public school fees. 

For example, a single contribution of 
£8,485.80 could, after 10 years, provide 
£48,852 worth of school fees* in total over tbe 
following 7 years. 

At a saving of 82%. 

Or you may prefer to spread the cost by 
making regular contributions. Either way if 
you’re thinking of putting your child's name 
down for public school, put his name down for

Cover, sir? Certainly, but do you have Aids? 


INSURANCE 


W6AITING KOOM 


You can hardly pick up a 
newspaper or turn on the 
television these days without 
seeing something about Aids. 
You cannot even fill in an 
application for life insurance 
without seeing something 
about it either. 







From the start of this month 
60 leading life insurance com- 
panies are including a specific 
question about Aids — ac- 
quired immune deficiency 
syndrome — in their applica- 
tion forms. It reads: “Have 
you received medical advice 
or treatment or had a blood 
test in connection with Aids or 
an Aids-related condition?"

IN 10 YEARS ONE IN THREE ADULTS WILL CARRY THE VIRUS 



| Founded 1762 BKM6E | 

i The Equitable Life i 

Lh mm bK>u gain because we're different, — h J 


This is the format suggested 
by the Association of British 
Insurers to cope with what the 
insurance industry sees as a 
real, and growing problem. 
Not every company is adher- 
ing to it. 

Insurance companies in the 
United States are already dis- 
covering that the amount of 
money paid on deaths of Aids 
victims is four or five times 
the normal amount. The clear 
implication is that Aids vic- 
tims are insuring themselves 
up to the hilt in the knowledge 
that the disease is, at present, 
often fatal So it is little 


wonder that British insurers 
are getting worried about it 

On the other hand, asking 
specific questions about Aids 
raises a host of questions, for 
insurers, applicants and the 
doctors who do medical ex- 
aminations for life companies. 
If you answer “Yes” to the 
insurance question, the com- 
pany will demand a blood test 
According to the Aids experts, 
only about 10 per cent of the 
people who show positive 
reactions to an Aids blood test 
develop the disease, but there 
is no way of ascertaining who 
the unlucky one out of 10 will 
be. 

Many Aids experts also 
reckon that within 10 years or 
less, something like a third of 
the adult population will carry 
the Aids HTVL3 virus, al- 
though many will never actu- 


ally develop the disease. What 
are the insurers going to do 
about it? If the statistics are 
correct, they could, on current 
attitudes, find themselves go- 
ing out of business. 

They have three options. 
They can turn down an Aids 
virus-carrier flat, they can 
“defer" an application for a 
number of years, or they can 


Names will go on 
the blacklist 


take the risk with an extra 
loading on the premium. 

Leading life companies such 
as the Prudential and the 
Norwich Union say they are 
going to defer an application 
for five years, which means 


they turn it down, but may 
look at it again. 


Meanwhile, the unfortunate 
applicant's name will go on 
the infamous life-insurance 
“blacklist", to which many 
companies have access. A 
person turned down by one 
-life company will find it 
difficult, if not impossible, to 
get insurance with another. 

The British Medical Associ- 
ation is not happy, at the way 
insurers are writing Aids 
clauses into their life-insur- 
ance proposal forms. Appli- 
• cants have no right to know 
why they are being turned 
down*. Also, the mere fact of 
being asked for a blood test 
may worry applicants into an 
early grave. 

It is seldom the applicant's 
own doctor who conducts an 
insurance medical. As the 
examining doctors are paid by 
the insurance company, they 


are generally held to be re- 
sponsible to it, not to the 
applicant 

Dr John Dawson, of the 
BMA, says: “I always suggest 
to doctors that they show a 
copy of their report to the 
applicant, and the applicant 
can then- choose whether or 
not it is sent in." 

Insurance medicals, howev- 
er, are a rather grey area and 
how helpful the doctor in 
question will be may depend 
on which side of the bed begot 
out of that morning, or wheth- 
er he likes the colour of your 
eyes. 

Canying the Aids virus 
does not mean you will neces- 
sarily develop tbe disease — 
but it does mean that you may 
not be able to get insurance on 
your life. . 

One London GP I talked to 
this week told me: “I have a 


‘People should not 
take blood test 9 


lot of people in my surgery 
asking for the Aids blood test 
Frankly, I try to dissuade 
them from having it because 
of the insurance angle. 

•"I had a leading 
venereologist at our practice 
lunch the other day and he 
pointed out the reasons why 


people should novtakea blood 
test .If it's positive, you can't — 
do anything about if at the-* - 
moment because there is no 
known cure. And the Act that 77 * 
you have had a blood test 
means you have' to tell the 
insurance company when you 
apply for life cover; otherwise 
-the insurance may prove 
invalid. ..... 

“So far the life companies" V 
are asking you only if you 
have had a test or any treat- 
ment, so even if you think you I; 
may have the virus you clearly 
shouldn't have a test 1 suspect 
the insurance companies will - v 
be demanding blood tests as a . 
matter of course before too 
long.” • . 

At present the' insurance 1 * 
companies say this would be 
too expensive. None of them 
has included Aids, pre- ]i 
emption clauses in their con- 
tracts — so far. ;C 

In the United States some " 
companies have started chare- 
ing single men over a certain 



TH 


age a higher premium based 
on the finding that the inci- 
dence of Aids has been highest 
among homosexuals. On this 
side of the Atlantic, insurers 
are just beginning to think 
about the problem.

Go West, it’s still good value 


( UNIT TRUSTS ^ 

The Americans have made 
sure that no one in the .world’s 
share markets is going j 0 
‘Oiwit Independence Day 
1 986. After a long weekend of 
celebration the market traders 
of Wall Street nursed their 
hangovers on an unsavoury 
diet of collapsing share prices. 
' The Dow Jones average fell 
more than 61 points on Mon- 
day,- wiping 3 per cent off 
snare values in a single ses- 
sion. Reverberations were felt 
around the world. The British 
market dropped the following 
day. More than £5.4 billion 
was lost from share values in 
the City, the European mar- 
kets fined badly and even the 
sturdy Japanese lost more 
than 200 points in a day. 

So. is it the end of the bull 
market? Apparently noL Even 
before the FT 30-Share Index 
picked up towards the end oT 
this .week most investment 
advisers were saying that 
America has a long way to go 
yet “We are still bullish," says 
Bob Yerbury, manager of 
Perpetual’s American Growth 
fund. “There was no question 
that the market was over-

Investment managers and 
brokers remain calm, despite 
the few market “gurus" who 
left their offices a week ago on 

. Thursday as bulls and came 
back on Monday as bears. It 
was the gloomy economic 
prognostications of'acknowl- i 
edged New York "wise men” 
that sent shares down, ai- : 
though the more substantial 
reasons were already appreci- : 
ated. 

Analysts had expressed con- 
cern for some time about 
sluggish economic growth, 
and the high level of American 
interest rates. Nevertheless, 
there is relief that a down- , 
ward turn has come at last 
“The fall is a genuine correc- 
tion in prices which have risen : 
almost in a straight line from 
1300 last September,” says 
Richard Henderson, 'of Hen- 
derson Administration. 

Martin Lister at Save & 
Prosper would agree, adding 
that he is “looking to a much ( 
higher market within the next j 
year”. He says: “Once the j 
Dow Jones index is around i 
the 2,100 level well have to \ 
start looking where to go." . i

American-invested unit 
trusts have fallen quite sharply 
this week. The Dow Jones 
index is down more than 5.S 
per cent since Tuesday, and 
funds have followed. Just how 
far depends on a number of 
factors. For example, the type 
of stock held is crucial; “small- 
er companies” funds have not 
been hit too haro. They were 
not showing be biggest gains 
before the falls, and investors 
sold elsewhere to protect 
profits.

But in general, if you had 
money in an American fund 
you have probably lost about 
5 per cent of it in four days. 

The currency in which the 
cash is held is also vital The

precaution of hedging a quar- 
ter of his funds into sterling,

want exposure to the dollar 
again. 

Our lable shows how pain- 
ful it can be to accumulate a 
gain in unit trusts. Over the 
month to July 1 the unit prices 
generally moved sideways and 
down a little. In the short and 
medium term America has 
been a good home for money. 
But next month’s statistics 
should make fairly unpleasant 
reading for investors recently 
committed to the United 
States, unless, of course, the 
market has managed to climb 
back up over its 1 , 900 -point 
peak. 

For some, the lower pricing 
for shares is inevitably associ- 
ated with bargain buys. “I’m 
already beginning to nibble at 
some stocks,” says Mr 
Yerbury. 

Investing at the bottom and 
selling at the top is the ideal of 
every investment manager. 
There is, however, some dis- 
agreement as to where the 
bottom actually is. By Thurs- 
day the Dow Jones was al- 
ready improving from its low 
around 1.800, yet some bro- 
kers expect the average to dip 
back down again before pick- 
ing up its skirts and running 
for new heights. 

One New York dealer said: 
“The time to invest is 1,750. If 
the market rises again before 
that, ! guess we could expect 
another downward 

correction.” Mr Henderson 
estimates that SO per cent of 
the business done on Wall 
Street is “short-term, for a 
quick profit". He says: “That 
amplifies the moves of the 
market, both up and down, h 
creates inefficiencies in the 
pricing of shares and provides 
opportunities for the long- 
term investor to acquire 
shares cheaply." 

His optimism is typical of 
American investment advis- 
ers. But for those who buy and 
sell shares there is often a 
happy coincidence between 
optimism and good business.

The bare facts of 
a fallen fund 


The experience of investors in 
EJectra Risk Capital 1 Fond, 
which this week reported that 
an original investment of 
£2300 is now worth only £873, 
highlights the risk of business 
start-up investment. 

Electra Risk Capital 1 Fund 
was the first and largest of the 
Business Start-up Schemes 
bunched, raising around £8.6 
million from investors after its 
launch in 1981. Like its 
isncessor, the Business Expan- 
sion Scheme, the BSS gave tax 
relief on investments. The bare 
facts about this fund make 
alarming reading; 

• Of the 32 companies invest- 
ed in by the fund only 12 
remain. The others have gone 
into liquidation or been sold 
for a nominal ammount. 

• The £8.6 million of invest- 
ments have now been reduced 
by the liquidations and sales to 
£33 million. 

• Investors purchased shares 
in lots of £.2500. These shares, 
as a proportion of the remain- 
ing investment, are now worth 
£873. If the investors wanted 
to sell them the managers 
would pay £785. In either case, 
even taxpayers who got relief 
at 60 per cent are snowing a 
net loss on their investment. 
Compare this appalling situa- 
tion with the original prospec- 
tus for < the food which 
contained just one projection 
of its performance, showing 
what would happen to the 
value of the shares if they 
•achieved a compound growth 
of 20 per cent per annum. 
Incidentally, the prospectus 
also stipulated that the compa- 
nies to be selected “will be 
expected to have strong and 
effective management". 

• The Inland Revenue is 
disputing the BSS status of the 


largest remaining investment 
in the fond, which represents 
more than a fifth of the 
outstanding fund. 

• The managing director of 
the fund managers, Gordon 
Dean, resigned in December 
1983, apparently’ to pursue 
other interests. He subse- 
quently received a golden 
handshake of around £50,000. 

• The full board, whose job it 
was to select the nltimate 
investments, included well 
known names such as Sir 
Terence Conran, formerly 
chairman of Habitat. 

• A second fund launched by 
Electra — Electra Risk Capital 
2 - invested in a number of the 
companies in the first fund 
which ultimately went into 
liquidation or were sold off for 
nominal sums. The manage- 
ment company, responsible for 
these investments is a subsid- 
iary of the Electra Investment 
Trust which is highly respect- 
ed for its investment in unquot- 
ed companies. 

Michael Stoddart, chair- 
man or the fund managers, 
said this week: “I do believe 
that we have some extremety 
interesting investments left in 
the fund. There is no question 
that things have gone wrong. 
But we are doing our absolute 
damnedest to make sure that 
the effects are mitigated. We 
do feel a very strong moral 
obligation towards the 
shareholders.” 

Of (he second Electra fund 
money that went into first fund 
companies which failed he 
says: “We had a genuine belief 
that with additional capital 
they would have gone well."

For many years, Japan has been a favourite choice for 
investors looking to diversify- their portfolios overseas. They

with outstanding returns. We believe that Japan should 
consistently merit a place in investors? portfolios. Certain

World oil prices have fallen significantly. As 
a huge importer of oil Japan stands to 
gain from the fall of oil prices perhaps more 
than any other industrialised natioa 

The Japanese authorities are looking to 
reduce interest rates and stimulate the 
domestic economy into higher growth. With 
inflation continuing to fall, we also consider that the rise in 
real incomes will farther encourage domestic expansion 

Japan’s long term commitment to industrial 
growth and technological development 
should, we consider, ensure that it continues 
to rank high among the world’s leading economies. 

Since the launch of Ifcrget Japan Fund in December 
1982, it has provided investors with an impressive 
return of over 296%* well above the average of 243%.* '

• A year’s 
cover if 
you buy 
a home 

High ooeinpioynient and the 
th reat of cutbacks in social 
secnnty payments for mort- 
gage interest have made bome- 
bnyers more aware of the risks 
involved when taking on a 
mortga ge. A new policy from 
Provincial Insurance goes 
some way towards giving a 
measnre of cover against this 
risk, and the loss of income 
through til health. 

Marketed by the Britannia 
Building Society, the policy 
insures against the risk of 
accident, sickness and unem- 
ployment. There are no re- 
s6 ?ytio ns on health, sport or 
pastimes — jnst so long as the 
i insured is under 65, employed, 
in good health and unaware of 
imminent redundancy. 

The policy provides monthly 
income to cover mortgage re- 
payments should you be un- 
able to work through sickness 
or accident — or if you lose 
your job. The amount of 
monthly income provided var- 
ies between £100 and £500. 
Monthly premiums range be- 
tween £4 and £20, or between 
£3.50 and £7.50 if the risk of 
unemployment is excluded. 

But be careful - do not 
confuse this temporary cover, 
lasting for jnst one year, with 
the longer-term permanent 

health insurance policies. 

% 

For a male secondary school 
teacher in good health and 
aged 45 next birthday, PHI 
cover of £500 a month would 
cost a monthly £13.63 with 
Friends' Provident, and £12.19 
with Norwich Union. 

Although both quotes are 
substantially higher than the 
accident policy rates, consider 
:*he crucial difference: the PHI 
policies offer uncance liable 
xover and benefits for 20 years, 
■as opposed to income which 
■terminates after 1 2 months.

The trouble 
with tenants 
who stay on 


( LETTING ) 

Janet Robson’s solicitor de- 
scribed the consequences of 
her first venture into the world 
of furnished lettings as “a 
disaster” And- Mrs Robson's 
experience is a salutory lesson 
for anyone thinking of letting 
property without proper legal 
advice. 

In May 1985 Mis Robson 
and her family decided their 
flat was too small and that 
they should rent it out. They 
decided they should rent only 
to a company, as companies 
do not have security of tenure 
under the Rent Acts. 

They placed an advertise- 
ment in a national newspaper 
and among the people who 
replied was an optician, a Mr 
Le Scrooge. Mrs Robson did 
not want to rent the property 
to him and she told him there 
were other interested parties. 

A week later, another opti- 
cian. Mina Suchak, viewed the 
flat. Mrs Robson claims Miss 
Suchak said she had owned 
another house in north Lon- 
don that she rented out. 

Quite what was said about 
Miss Suchak's optica] business 
remains under contention be- 
tween the two parties. But 
there was reference to her 
carrying on a partnership 
which Mrs Robson thought 
was the same as a company. 

The Robson family decided 
to rent to Miss Suchak for a 
six-month period. Mrs Rob- 
son did not take any legal 
advice,- and all parties con- 
cerned signed a standard fur- 
nished letting form that can be 
bought from any law 
stationers. 

If Mrs Robson had taken 
legal advice at the time when 
the letting agreement was 
finalized, she might have 
saved herself thousands of 
pounds and months of 
heartache. 

The tenant had signed the 
agreement “Mina Suchak, 
partner of Clearsigbt". 


Clearsight was not a company 
but a partnership between 
Mina Suchak and Yogesh 
Suchak. 

A property lawyer, John 
Samson. of Nabarro 
Nathanson. explained the sig- 
nificance; “The Rent Act gives 
protection to individuals by 
means of security of tenure 
and an entitlement to a Air 
rent. Virtually all partnerships 
are treated as individuals and 
are entitled to the full protec- 
tion of the Rent Acts.” 

The letting started on an 
extremely friendly, basis but 

Second meeting in 
the High Court 

according to Mrs Robson 
things rapidly deteriorated. 

“The rent was often late,” 
she said. “The fridge broke 
down several times and the 
tenant presented us with a bill 
for £99.75 for beluga caviar, 
king prawns, and four lobsters 
which she said had been in the 
fridge. To make matters 
worse. I found out that Mr Le 
Scrooge was living at the flat, 
although 1 did not see him.” 

Mrs Robson did meet Mr 
Le Scrooge again. It was on 
October 30 in the High Court. 
The previous day the Robson 
family had decided to take the 
law into their own hands and 
move back into the flat. 

Mrs Robson explained their 
viewpoint: “Miss Suchak was 
constantly in breach of con- 
tract with overdue rent and we 
soon realized that she had no 
intention of leaving at the end 
of the six-month contract. We 
telephoned Miss Suchak to tell 
her what we had done.” 

It is a criminal offence to re- 
enter residential property 
without a court order, and the 
High .Court judge held that the 
tenants could not be unlawful- 
ly evicted. 

The tenants moved back in, 
and although the six-month 
letting agreement came to an 
end in November 1985. Miss

ways to catch up. 

London prices are 20% higher than a year ago- 

The South-Eastfs have gone up 16.1%. Across Britain 
prices are up 11%/ 

So you’ll be delighted with three new mortgages for people 
wanting £50,000 (or a great deal more) . 

Belgravia is a unique new ‘cap and collar’ mortgage. 
Belgravia rates gp up and down 
with national levels, but with this 
difference: 

For the fust 5 years, you get 
guaranteed maximum and 
minim urn rates. Currently, these 
are 11% and 8.5%. 

The new Knightsbridge 
mortgage has a fixed rate for the 
first hve years. 

And Kensington is tinted to 
the UK Money Market rate. 

If you’ve already borrowed £50,000, or more, iCs worth 
a caD to see if one of these three new mortgages would be better 

than the one you’ve got u ^ 

If you don’t need as much as £50,000, remember were 
Britain’s biggest independent mortgage specialists. ■

The landlady who has learned an expensive lesson: Mrs Robson ontside the flat 


Suchak and Mr Le Scrooge are 
still in the flat. At one stage a 
five-figure sum was suggested, 
on payment of which Miss 
Suchak would vacate the flat. 
When this was put to Miss 
Suchak's solicitor, he said this 
was the sort of figure they 
thought they needed to re- 
house themselves. - 

Court proceedings are now 
in hand for repossession of the 
flat and the case should be 
heard in the autumn. 

Meanwhile. Mrs Robson's 
solicitor has advised her not to 
accept the rent that has been 
offered by the tenants, so as 
not to prejudice their legal 
position. The Robsons are 
now £5,200 out of pocket, and 
they have recently had to sell 
their bouse in London and 
move, as they could not afford 
both their house and the flat 


They are waiting for the 
outcome of the court case but 
Mrs Robson said: “This is the 
first and last time we will rent 
property. The Rent Act was 
wonderful in essence but it has 
made the life of a landlord 
ridiculous.'* 

“Legal reasons why 
we are arguing 9 

Commenting on the situa- 
tion generally. Miss Suchak’s 
solicitor said:“There are legal 
reasons why we are arguing 
that the letting was to an 
individual. My clients were 
also thrown out - into the 
streets one night, despite the 
fact that it is a criminal 
offence to do so. 

“I do not know whether 
Miss Suchak owns another 


property. As far as I know they 
just decided that they want to 
stay in lbe flat. It is a very 
unfortunate case. It is not up 
to us to make moral judg- 
ments. We leave it to the court 
to decide." 

A few timely words of 
advice on letting came from 
Mr Samson: “You should 
always take legal advice at the 
outset. If you let to a company 
always do a company search. 
If you have residential proper- 
ty you should consider pro- 
tected shonhold tenancies 
where you can get the tenant

( INVESTMENT ) 

Clever money is supposed to 
stay ahead of the market 
Every investment manager is 
supposed to be anxions not 
just to be better than the rest, 
but to be seen to be better than 
the rest. Or so we might think. 

River & Mercantile is pre- 
paring the launch of an invest- 
ment trust which sets' out to 
follow the average price of 
shares in the market. , 

Instead of being obsessed by 
outperforming the index, this 
fund, with 390 shares spread 
around the world, will set out 
to do no better or worse than 
the market average. 

“Our shares will represent 
60 per cent of the market 
capitalization of their domes- 
tic stock markets," says Piers 
Godfrey, of River & 
Mercantile. 

“We are providing a service 
for the private client who is 
looking for international expo- 
sure and isn’t perhaps getting 
the best advice from brokers. 
It’s a cheap way to invest.” 

Mr Godfrey hopes costs will 
be kept down to 0.2 per cent of 
investment' (minimum £250). 

The fund is invested 55 per 
cent in American stock, with 
25 per cent in Japan, 4 per 
cent in West Germany and the 
rest spread around the world. 
British stocks are not 
included. 

But is an index fond really 
unambitious or just prudent? 
“A lot of investment managers 
fail to beat their share 
indices,” says Mr Godfrey.

M&G SECOND GENERAL 



IeximI 
Imbtsupto 


Over the last thirty years you probably could not 
have held a unit trust with a better performance than 
M&G SECOND GENERAL 

£1,000 invested at its launch in June 1956 would 
now be worth £67,208 with all income reinvested, 
compared with £8,104 from a similar investment in a 
building society. To have maintained its purchasing 
power over the period, £1,000 would need to have 
grown to £8,748. 

The British Stockmarket has been strong for a 
number of years, which is why many investors are 
now looking at overseas markets for new investment 
opportunities. But concentration in one particular 
area can produce very volatile investment results, 
and this year's high flier can often be nextyearis poor 
performer. You should be wary of short-term per- 
formance claims, such as the “Over 50% growth in 
just five months’* quoted recently for a European 
unit trust 

M&G has two International Funds which solve the 
problem by spreading your investment effectively among 
the major stockmarkets of the world 

The M&G International Income Fund aims to 
provide a high income, and one that can be expected to 
increase over the years, from an international portfolio of 
equities. 

The M&G International Growth Fund aimsfor all-out 
capital growth by investing in the major stockmarkets of 
the worfd. 

If you remain optimistic about the British Stockmarket 
and want a balanced portfolio, look at M&G SECOND 
GENERAL which aims for consistent growth of income 
and capital from a wide spread of shares mainly in British 
companies.

CRICKET: AN ELITIS T FINAL THAT SHOULD DRAIN THE ENERGIES OF A FULL HOUSE AT LORD ! 


Duty to rehouse indefinitely Middlesex look 

... * Oinnwl fnr the flooiicant also • j j ~U ' 


Rggjpa ▼ Camden London 
Borough Council, Ex parte 
Walt 

Before Mr Justice McCowan 
[Judgment given July 7] 

Where a person occupying 
short-life property on a three- 
month licence uas made home- 
less as a result of a fire, the local 

authority in fulfilling their 
obligation to house him under 
section 4<5)of the Housing 
(Homeless Persons) Act 1977. 
v/as required to secure that 
accommodation became, a vad- 
able for his occupation indeti- 
nitely and not just for the period 
of the licence. 

Mr Justice McCowan so .held 
in the Queen's Bench Division 
when granting an application by 
Mr Jeremy Wait for judicial 
review of decisions of Camden 
London Borough Council, dated 
August 9 and 22. 1985, to 
discharge their duty to the 
applicant to secure him accom- 
modation pursuant to section 
4(5) of the Act by securing him 
accommodation only until 
November 19. 1985. 

Mr David Watkinson for the 
applicant; Mr David Anthony 
Smith for the council. 


MR JUSTICE McCOWAN 
said lhai in May 1985 the 
applicant occupied a flat which 
was one of a number in a block 
under licence from an organiza- 
tion known as Short-Life 
Community Housing (SCH). 

That body made arrange- 
ments for the use and pecula- 
tion of property acquired by 
local authorities for demolition 
or replacement They were 
familiarly known as shon-lue 
properties. 

SCH permitted the applicant 
to occupy the flat under licence 
from SCH. The council planned 
to carry out works on we 
property in August 1985 which 


would have required vacant 
possession. , A 

In consequence, the applicant 
would have had to leave by that 
date. On May 7, 1985 there was 
a fire as a result of which all the 
flats were either gutted or ren- 
dered uninhabitable. 

The council made 
arrangements, in respect of their 
responsibilites under the Act to 
provide flats for a period of 
three months. 

The council were satisfied 
that the applicant was homeless, 
had a priority need because he 
became homeless as a result of 
the fire, and were not satisfied 
that the applicant became 
homeless intentionally. 

The council accepted that by 
virtue of section 4(5) of the Act 
. they had a duty to secure 

accommodation for the 
applicant's occupation. 

The council did not accept 
that their duty under section 
4(5) was that they should secure 
that accommodation became 
available for the applicant's 
occupation “permanently" or 
“indefinitely”. 

The question was whether the 
council had to secure that 
accommodation became avail- 
able for the applicant's occupa- 
tion indefinitely. 

There was no suggestion of 
the council taking up the sugges- 
tion made on behalf of the 
applicant that they could con- 
tinue to provide short-term 
licences indefinitely. 

The applicant relied, inter 
alia, on the words of Lord 
Denning, Master of the Rolls, in 
R v Slough Borough Council, Ex 


Counsel for the applicant also 
referred to the words of Lord 
Lowry in Din v Wandsworth 
London Borough Council 


([19831 I AC 657, 677-8) where 
he said; . 


... the accommoda- 
tion referred to in sections 3(4) 
and 4(3) is intended for tem- 
porary occurtauon and ... the 
accommodation mentioned in 
section 4(4) and 4(5) is for other 
than temporary occupation, 
since there is no temporal 
adverbial qualification of the 


word 'occupation'.” 
i ally the aj 


finally the applicant relied on 
Puhlhofer V HiUin 


. f Hillingdon London 

Borough Council ([ 19861 2 WLR 
r cuic 


259, 278) whop, into- alia. Lord 
Brightman said: “The duty of 
the local authority to secure that 
accommodation is made avail- 
able to the homeless person is 
accordingly confined to the 
homeless person with a priority 
need: indefinite accommoda- 
tion if not intentionally home- 
less, temporary accommodation 
if intentionally homeless." 

It was submitted that all those 
dicta showed that the approach 
of the council was wrong in law. 

In making an analysis of the 
difference between section 4(2) 
and (3) on' the one hand and 
section 4(5) on the other, it was 
obvious that the duty cast on a 
local authority was a lesser duty 
under subsection (3) than it was 
under subsection (5) for very 
understandable reasons. 

Looking at section 4(3). spe- 
cific attention was permitted to 
be paid to the period to be 
provided. When turning to sec- 
tion 4(5) there was nothing like 
that to be found. 


His Lordship agreed with the 
dicta in the cases and the 


a v oioarn wroiijn v m in the cases and toe 

pane Mm Landon Borough appIicant was entitled to be 
Council ([1981] QB 801, 811) provided by the council with

nitely - and not merely for a CampbelLCamden; Mr Francis

Duty to assist the liquidator 


In re John T. Rhodes Ltd 
Before Mr Justice Hoffmann 
[Judgment given June 26] 

Although the principles on 
which the jurisdiction under 
section 561 of the Companies 
Act 1985 should be exercised 
were well established, attitudes 
expressed in nineteenth-century 
fqw might now be obsolete. 
Those involved in the affairs of 
an insolvent company had a 
duty to assist the liquidator. 

Mr Justice Hoffmann so 
stated in the Chancery Division 
when dismissing a motion to 
vacate an order obtained by the 
liquidator for examination of 
the applicant Mr Richard Hay- 
ward. in relation to the affairs of 
John T. Rhodes Ltd. 


discussed in In re Rolls Razor

plicant: Mr Gabriel Moss for the 
liquidator.

MR JUSTICE HOFFMANN 
said that the principles on which 
the jurisdiction to order such an 
examination should be ex- 
ercised had been exhaustively 


Castle New 
WLR 1075) and ... 

Ltd (Noie) {[1919] 1 

No case on section 561 or its 
predecessors in this century 
other than by judges of first 
instance had been referred to. 
That was not particularly 
surprising because orders under 
the sections were a matter of 
discretion and appeals against 
an exercise of a judge's dis- 
cretion were rarely successful. 

It did have the result, how- 
ever, that attitudes and values 
expressed in cases derided a 
century ago but still authori- 
tative might have become ob- 
solete. 

While the meaning of a word 
like “oppressive" did not 
change, the content of the 
concept in any given context 
might change very considerably. 

Victorian cases on the equiva- 
lent section contained emotive 
language invoking images of the 
Inquisition and of the Court of 
Star Chamber. 


Such language was used 
against a background of com- 
pany law which required very 
little public disclosure and 
placed a much higher value than 
today upon the protection of the 
privacy of business transactions 
and a lower value upon the 
protection of creditors and 
shareholders. 

Today it was recognized that 
persons involved in the affairs 
of an insolvent company owed a 
public duty to assist the liq- 
uidator in investigating the 

tiAnitv in 111 - 


company's affairs in the in- 
i of cred' 


terests of creditors. 

A liquidator came to his task 
with no knowledge of the 
company's affairs, and its books 
were often inadequate to tell the 
whole story, so that he would 
frequently need the assistance of 
those involved in the conduct of 
its business.

Council’s power without a duty 


-Regina v Essex Chanty 
Council, Ex parte Washington 
Section 46(4) of the Child 
Care Act 1980, as substituted by 
the Health and Social Services 
and Social Security Adjudica- 
tions Act 1983. which provided 
that “a local authority need not 
serve a contribution notice in 
any case where in the circum- 
stances they consider h un- 
reasonable to require 
contributions" towards . the 
maintenance of children In the 
care of local authorities, con- 
ferred on a local authority the 
power not to serve a contribu- 
tion notice if they thought fit; 
but without imposing a duly not 
jdoso. 

Mr Justice McCowan so held 
in the Queen's Bench Division 
on July 4 when dismissing the 
applicant's application for ju- 
dicial review of a contribution 


notice issued by Essex County 
Council. 

HIS LORDSHIP said that the 
purpose of the word "need" in 
section 46(4) was to give a 
power to the local authority not 
to serve a contribution notice if 
they thought fit Without the 
word “neoT a local authority 
would be obliged to serve a 


contribution notice even if they 
thought it was not reasonable to 

do so. 

Parliament had not put them 
under any obligation but had 
merely given them a power. 
Accoroingly a local authority 
was not obliged to investigate all 
the circumstances if they chose 
not la

An award of £800 for pain, 
suffering and loss of amenity 
arising from a twisted ankle, 
which although causing little

one-day wonder 


A famous

to bear 


that is Gatting 


By John Woodcock, Cricket Correspondent 

and as the younger side they 


If today’s final of the Ben- 
son and Hedges Cup between 
Middlesex and Kent is any- 
thing like as good a game as 
they had when last they met at 
Lord's — in the knock-out 
final of 1984 - then you must 
expea to arrive home late 
tonight and thoroughly 
drained. Middlesex needed 
one run off the last bail to win 
that match and Emburey 
scored it It was pretty well 
dark at the time but it was 
much later in the year than it 
is now. 

Such is the capriciousness of 
one-day cricket that both 
today's sides have failed to get 
beyond the last 16 of this 
year's NatWest Trophy. Kent 
seem to have gone off the boil 
while Middlesex are having a 
difficult time with injuries and 
Test calls. Through playing for 
England, Gatting, Edmonds. 
Emburey, Down ton and Slack 
have missed anything between 
one and seven championship 
matches. But the sides are old 
friends and rivals, who usually 
manage to bring the best out in 
each other. 



Today’s teams

C T Radley, fP R Downton, J E

Umpires: D J Constant and D R 
Shepherd. 


It is a final to appeal to the 
sponsors, being more than 
mildly elitist and foil of 
favourite players as well as 
promising ones. When the 
teams are announced there 
will be 14 or 1 5 Test cricketers 
among them and two or three 
others who may well play for 
England one day. At 8-11 
Middlesex are the 
bookmakers' favourites, part- 
ly perhaps because Kent have 
not won a Lord's final, or 
anything else for that matter, 
since 1978. 

IfMiddlesex have the stron- 
ger bowling, Kent's batting 
goes farther down the order 


may be expected to fed the 
better, both Cowdreys being 
particularly good. Middlesex 
do tend to depend an awful lot 
on Gatting for the making of a 
winning total. Time and again 
this season he has pulled them 
through in the one-day com- 
litions. More often than not 
atting holds the key. 

Of the Middlesex side only 
Miller, last year’s Oxford cap- 
tain and now Slack's opening 
partner, will be playing in his 
first final. Kent have three or 
four who will be. Both sides 
also have one of the game's 
grandest stalwarts, Clive 
Radley, of Middlesex, and 
Derek Underwood, of Kent. 
Radley is a resilient 42, Un- 
derwood an imperishable 41, 
and both still delight in then- 
labours. Underwood has 
played in all Kent's 10 previ- 
ous finals, the first in 1967, 
and Radley in all Middlesex's 
seven, the first 10 years later. 

In three of Middlesex's last 
four Radley has won either the 
gold award or been man of the 
match, a testimony to his 
enduring skill and splendid 
temperament. In all 
Underwood's finals the aver- 
age rate at which he has 
conceded his runs has been 2.5 
an over. I wish he could have 
bowled against India at 
Edgbaston last Tuesday, the 
last day of the Test match. It 
will be interesting to see him 
opposite Edmonds today, as it 
will be to compare Dilley - if 
an ankle injury allows him to 
play — with Hughes. 

"Reputed to be the youngest 
player ever to appear in a 
match at Lord's, 13-year-old 
Michael Cowdrey, in his first 
match for Tonbridge, contrib- 
uted largely to the success of 
his side ” That is how the first 
appearance of a Cowdrey at 
Lord's, 40 years ago, was 
reported in Wisden. Michael 
very soon became Colin and 
today there is his youngest 
son, Graham, as well as his 
eldest, Christopher, the Kent 
captain. They win be watched 
by a full house and it should 
be a very good occasion. 
Yesterdav's cricket, pace 30 


During Maidstone weds tikis 
summer, Christopher Cowdrey 
brought Hwwlf on to bowl and 
was identified over the poMfc 
address as Colin, his father. 
When foe Kent captafe tossed 
the ball to Graham, his brother, 
the mpnwirarpinent was that 
Christopher was to bowL.Evea 
Inadvertently, the brothers are 
saddled with comparisons. 
Surmounting them is Graham 
Cowdrey's challenge at Lord> 

today in foe biggest match of his 
brief career. 

Graham Cowdrey has done as 
m pph as anyone to propel Kent 
into foe Benson and Hedges 
PttqI in the zonal rounds, ms 
unbeaten 60 against Hampshire 
helped Kent into foe quarter- 
final and caught the eye of Sir 
Leonard Hutton. Then at Derby, 
he and Christopher effeemely 
won foe match with a stand of 5o 
in seven overs, Graham making 

34- 

In this, his first foil season in 
Che Kent side, he has bated 
No. 6. In limited oven cricket 
there is no time to grow acens- 
tomed to the light, the pitch and 
the bowling, to play through foe 
‘V between mid-off and b«h» 
as his father liked to do Tor his 
first lOovers. 

Recently, after scoring runs 
consistently in the first seven 
weeks of foe season, Graham 
found himself straggling to 
make runs on poor three-day 
pitches. His father advised that 
when he had gone through a tad 
patch, be would look for five 
runs, then 10 and play as 
straight as possible. "I never 
saw him play first-class cricket, 
which is my biggest disappoint- 
ment. The more I play, the more 
I value everything he says. But 


he would never say, ‘I saw yow oa 
television, that shot was awful . 



The youngest of three sous, 

Graham learned to bat against a s;z;?S2s;;Kf; ^ - , 

A°i Driving force: Grafcun Cowdrey, findscoimction inreligiM, 

prep school, he averaged 85 in 
his last summer. 


At Tonbridge he was in foe 
First XI at 13. Being taken out of 
his age group caused problems 
socially. Cowdrey did not enjoy 
school life until his last year, by 
when he was irked by foe cricket 
masters poshing him to play 
professionally. “Ttsey nmdemy 
schedule of matches during me 
holidays and told me they were 
looking after my career. I still 
question whether it was my 
decision to play county cricket, 
he said. 


First Cowdrey went to Dur- 
ham University to read General 
Arts. He did not enjoy it and 
last year, his second on foe Kent 
staff, be scored L300 runs for 
the Second XI, played a few 
first-team matches and made a 
half-century against the Austra- 
lians. This summer there fa talk 


that he has a Test future. 

So how good is he? Sir 
Leonard Hatton feels he has a 
lot of ability and his father’s 
temperament. He will probably 
not have to work as hard as 
Christopher at scoring runs. He 
has natural .timing; allied to 
strength. At Worcester tins 
season he drove through foe line 
at Radford and put me ball out 
of foe ground. And he is not 
without detenmnatidn. 

But it fa unlikely that 
Cowdrey, jnst 22, will stay in the 
game as long as his father or 
brother. He does not enjoy what 
be terms as "the cricket 
treadmill", the constant travel- 
ling and upheaval foe incessant 
cricket talk and drinking after a 
day's play. “My father loves 
cricket, Chris and I like cricket, 
but he likes the treadmill. I feel 
exhausted already. I have lost a 


lot of friends through constantly' 
being away." ' 1 ‘ s ' 

There is a further reason,. 
Cowdrey is a Christian. He wett 
on foe Christians hi Sport fear., 
to India last winter and found 
tint church and prayer meeting, 
after cricket gave him a fuifu- 
ment that downing pints newx- 
could. "The torn: stresagforit^d' 
my convictions: and I have 
Struggled this season with foe 
contradictions of dresmn^roowi; 
life, foe swearing; and - foe- 


pornography. . 

"I lud it very difficult fa be ii

If I could go to church each 
Sunday with Vic Marks (also ofl 
the tom) tt would, be different. 1 
would like to see every county

HOCKEY 


All change at the top 
for governing body 


By Sydney Frisian 


Stephen Baines, aged 39, the 
marketing director of the Na- 
tional Association of Boys 
Clubs, has been appointed sec- 
retary-general of the Hockey 
Association with effect from 
January I, 1987. He succeeds 
Colonel Dennis Eagan, who is 
taking early retirement. 

The association, which con- 
trols foe game in Engla nd, naa 
been searching for a secretary- 
general with commercial exper- 
tise. The experience of Baines, it 
is believed, will help in foe 
expansion of the gafo e J , . n fo e 
years following foe World Cup 
tournament to be held in Lon- 
don from October 4-19. 

He will, in fact, be joining foe 
association on October 1 so that 
he will be present throughout 
the staging of the World Cup. 
After that he will tour various 
pans of England to meet those 
who administer hockey at di- 
visional leveL 

A new era in administration 
will in fact begin wifo^ the 
appointment from November 1 
of David Whitaker, at present 
the coach of the England team, 
as director of coaching. While 
holding responsibility for foe 
technical development of 
hockey he will complement the 
role of Baines as a general 
administrator and markeung 
director. 

Baines, who lives in Hertford- 
shire. qualified as a teacher in 
physical education at London 
universiiy in 1969. He taught in 
London. Wagga Wagga and 


Sydney, Australia, where for two 
years, up to 1973. he was head of 
physical education io a large 
school. 

By gaining a Master of Sci- 
ence degree in recreation admin- 
istration at foe American 
University of Oregon in 1975. 
he broadened his outlook. There 
followed six and a half years as 
executive director of foe Ca- 
nadian Rugby Union which was 
then beginning to develop rugby 
as an important sport in Can- 
ada. Having left foe CRU in 
1981 he ran his own sports 
consultancy in Toronto before 
returning to Britain in February. 
1983.

Drivers join 
in the race 


against time 


By Bryan Stfles 

Formula One mechanics have 
had a hectic time in the past 
seven days, patching up foeir 
teams' craft as the world series 
cirrus travelled from Sacra- 
mento to Vancouver for the 
third Grand Prix of foe season. 
Most of the boats which com- 
peted in foe turbulent waters of 
the Sacramento Grand Prix last 
week required repairs. 

Britain's leading drivers, Rick 
Frost and Andy Bullen, were 
helping their technicians with 
the work as they were keen to 
have their boats ready in time to 
practice for tomorrow's race. 


The series is still wide open. 

ring been 


with the honours having 
shared around in the first two 
Grands Prix. and Bullen in 
particular will be hoping to get 
into the prize money tomorrow 
in order io supplement the rest 
of his stay on the American 
circuit. 

Formula Two drivers are in 
West Germany for foe Hanover 
Grand Prix with force British 
drivers near the top of the 
championship table. Mark Wil- 
son leads foe parade with 20 
points, one more than Welsh- 
man Jonathan Jones.. Chris 
Bush, the American, is in third 
place with 15 points and 
Gloucester's John Hill foe 
reigning champion, is fourth 
with icn. 

More than 40 offshore power- 
boats take to the River Thames 
tomorrow for the 25fo running 
of the London-Calaisrace. They 
will start at Tower Bridge at 
8.55am. 


WRESTLING 


Loban poised to lead 
Britain’s challenge : 


By Philip Nicksan 


The finest array of inter- 
national wrestlers to be seen in 
Britain for more than 20 years 
will be at foe Horwich Leisure 
Centre, Bolton, this weekend 
where 16 countries, including 
the United States. Canada. West 
Germany and New Zealand will 
take pan in the Challenge Cup. 

The event comes at an im- 
portant time for wrestling in 
Britain. First of all it gives the 
British wrestlers an opportunity 
to sharpen their skills against 
some able opponents in time for 
the Commonwealth Games. 

The man most likely to 
benefit will be Britain's leading 
wrestler. Noel Loban. whose 
international career has not 
been without its problems since 
he won a bronze medal at the 
Los Angeles Olympic Games. 

He did not reach medal 
placing in either foe World 
Championships in Hungary in 
1985 nor in foe European 
Championships in Athens in 
March this year, although there 
he had to pull out with a hip 
injury. But despite his advanc- 
ing age — he is now 28 - he has 
made a determined effort to 
return to fitness and this week 
arrived back in Britain after a 
whistle-stop training tour of 
Europe where he had 10 
matches and pinned nine of his 
opponents for an outright win. 

“1 fed much better now 
because I have used my. lay-off 
from matches to work on : my 
moves on foe mat — which has 
always been one of my . 
weaknesses," said Loban. . \ 


He reckons that thel 
Cup will actually .provic 
tougher competition than 'Ujc 
Commonwealth' Games evfeni 
itself even though Canada; for' 
instance, are only entering their . 
second team into the Cup. It 
should be noted, however, that ' 
foe second team distinguished 
themselves, in the Common- 
wealth Championships held m 
'Scotland earlier this year. m ':C : 

That championship highlights 
the second reason why the influx 
of so- many nations for -the 
Challenge Cup is -timely. De- 
spite some good talent such as - 
Loban (under 90 k). Brian 
Aspen (under 57 k) and.Fitz- 
Walker (under 74 k). British 
wrestling is at a low ebb; not 
least since it has been told it will 
not be included; in the lj&90. 
Commonwealth Gantts 
programme. . 

This is. why. foe Common-, 
wealth wrestling associations 
gathered together to launch foe 
Commonwealth . Champion*; 
ships and create some _ (ijpk 


to the Contracm- 
n-Tfet 


wealth Gaines organization, 
wrestling needs a higher profile 
in order to combat foe weekly 
dose of professional enjertain- 
ment dished up on commercial 
TV on .Saturday afternoons. 
This will be provided-to some 
extent this weekend .' when . 
France, -Switzerfapd, Austria 
and even Taiwan mil be' raging 
the other countries represented 
at Horwjch. The prehmiaaries 
are today and the finals -tbmbW'

Henry ■ Candy, (he 
K.mgstone warren trainer, has 
already plundered one of the 
North’s most valuable handi- 
caps this season, when Sneak 
Preview won the Northum- 
berland Plate a* Newcastle last 
month. Now he is after anoth- 
er, sending Tosara .north to 
York, from his base near 
Wantage in Oxfordshire, to 
challenge for the John Smith’s 
Magnet Cup on the 
Knavesmire this afternoon. 

Candy was confident at 
Newmarket earlier this week 
that his progressive four-year- 
old filly would go very dose, 
and she is my nap. 

Racing for only the fifth 
time in her life; Tosara was the 
easy winner of a 10-furlong 
handicap at Doncaster last 
month, for which she is now 
penalized Sib. But Candy is 
hoping that that disadvantage 
will be offset by putting up his 
own competent apprentice. 
Chris Rutter, and claiming his 
full allowance. Thtis, Tosara 
will go to post carrying only 
8st 21b. 

That is a big consideration 
as it means that she will be 
meeting the fancied three- 
year-old Dalgadiyr on 51b 
better terms than she would in 
a normal weight-for-age race. 

Earlier this year- both 
Tosara and Dalgadiyr beat the 
same horse, Daarkom - 
Tosara at Ripon, Dalgadiyr at 
Windsor. A strict interpreta- 
tion of that form makes 
Dalgadiyr slightly the better at 
weight-for-age, but the way 
things stand now, 1 believe 
that the advantage lies with 
Tosara, who certainly seems 
to be getting better with every 
race. Also. Dalgadiyr, who had 


By Mandarin (Michael Phillips) 

a hard and luckless ride at 
Sandown only eight days ago, 
does not look an easy ride for a 
lightweight * 

Chaumiere and Chiclet 
first and third in the race 12 
months ago, have been handi- 
capped to run a dead-beat if 
they reproduce that form to 
the letter. • However, 
Chaumiere has not achieved 
much of late whereas Chiclet 
was very unlucky to finish 
only fourth at Sandown last 
time out 

Our Newmarket Correspon- 
dent is sweet on Atoka's 
chance, having watched her 
beat Russian Noble ami 
Sam haan ax Yarmouth last 
month. While it must be said 
that the form of that race has 
worked out well. I am sliU 
happy to go nap on Tosara. 

Felipe Toro ( 1.20) and Bold 
Pillager (1.50) are my other 
principal fancies at York. 
Felipe Toro's form last year 
did not amount to much, 
which explains why he was 
rated so low at the start of this 
season. 

Being gelded in the mean- 
time is the reason given for his 
rapid improvement, and hav- 
ing shrugged aside a 10-lb 
penalty at Beverley a week 
ago, 1 find it hard to believe 
that he will not register his 
fourth consecutive success in 
the Piper Champagne Handi- 
cap. carrying 7st Tib- 

Bold Pillager, another who 
is currently on a charge, can 
make it three in a row in the 
Hoftneister Lager Handicap. 
His form is linked with 
Avemino, who is one of the 
most improved handkappers 
in training. 

At Lingfield, Rakaposhi 


King will probably uy to lead 
all the way in the Sun Page 
Three Silver Cup the way he 
did at Haydock Park last 
Saturday when he ran away 
with the Old Newton Cup. Bui 
that was a handicap. 

This time he will- be con- 
fronted by Phardante, whose 
cunem claim to fame is that 
he defeated last year's Derby 
winner. Slip Anchor, in the 
Jockey Club Stakes at New- 
market in the Spring. Since 
then, Phardante has also won 
the valuable Grand Prix de 
Bruxelles in Belgium, and I 
think that he may well be 
capable of giving Rakaposhi 
King 10 lb. 

Those who backed Siyah 
Kalem to win the Royal Hunt 
Cup at Ascot, and then 
aggravatingly watched him 
fed narrowly to give bis stable 
companion, Patriarch 121b, 
win be looking to the News Oj 
The World trophy as the 
means to recovering their 
losses. 

However, it is pertinent to 
point out that John Dunlop's 
four-year-old has been beaten 
since in a similar race to 
today’s, at The Curragh on 
Irish Derby Day, whereas 
Nino Bibbia, who finished 
fourth in the St James’s Palace 
Stakes at Royal Ascot, has run 
really well since at Newmar- 
ket, when accounting for all 
but Mister Wonderful in the 
Van Geest Criterion Stakes. 

Finally, Morgan’s Choice, 
who bounced back to form in 
some style at Sandown a week 
ago.' is taken to win the 
Chester Summer Handicap on 
the Roodeye, where ’he has 
won the Chester Cup in the 
past 



W&m - Untold to plunder 
****** Irish Oaks prize 

From Our Irish Raring Correspondent 




The team of Michael Stoute 
and Walter Swinbum, who have 
already won two Irish classics in 
1986. look poised for another 
big race win at the Curragh this 
afternoon when they will be 
represented by Untold in the 
Gill town Stud Irish Oaks. 

Untold, who won her last 
three races as a two-year-old. 
including the Hoover Mile at 
Ascot, did not have a prepara- 
tory race ibis season prior ro 
taking her chance in the Gold 
Sea! Oaks at Epsom. In the 
circumstances ii was a fine 
performance on her part to get 
so dose to Midway Lady, who 
already been victorious in 
the General Accident 1,000 
Guineas at Newmarket. 

It was originally the intention 
of Ben Han bury that Midway 
Lady would come to the Cur- 
ragh ibis afternoon but she met 
with a training setback and her 
absence simplifies the task lac- 
ing Untold, who has been sold 


since Epsom and now carries the 
colours of Sheikh Mohammed. 

Stoute also saddles Coloispin. 
who finished fourth at Epsom. 
On that running, she has more 
than four lengths to find with 
her stable companion 

The home contingent is led by 
Fleur Royale and Lake Cham- 
plain. who finished first and 
second respectively in the Pretty 

Polly. Stakes. Lake Champlain 
had previously chased home 
Sonic Lady in the Irish 1,000 
Guineas and she had no luck in 
running in the Pretty Polly. 
However, with an additional 
two furlongs to travel, the more 
sioutlv-bred Fleur Royale, a 
daughter of Mill Reef, is fancied 
to finish in from of her once 
more. 

Dihtstan, who won the Hard- 
wicke Slakes at Royal Ascot 
looks another likely pattern race 
winner for Michael Stoute in the 
Royal Whip Stakes. 


Phardante, who is fancied for Lingfield Park's Sun Page 3 Silver Cup 

Leech shines on Rotherfield Greys 


Goinc 


Matt McCormack's 71b- 
ctaimiog apprentice Jonathan 
Leech rode an excellent race on 
JtodierfieU Greys to Laud tbe 
11-2 chance a ready one and a 
half lengths winner of the Lin 
Par Handicap at York yesterday 
from Clantime. The favourite. 
Imperial Jade, was a length 
further away third. 

Imperial Jade did her chances 
no good when she turned right 
Instead of left coming oat of the 
paddock and galloped away with 
Pat Eddery to the centre of tbe 
course. She did not go far, but 
wheo Eddery brought her back 
onto tbe racecourse she was 
pulling hard going to the start. 
Despite this defeat, the Roystou 
filly must still be regarded for 
tbe Stewards* Cup. 

Rotherfield Greys is not in the 
big Goodwood spiiab “ He had 
an unfortunate experience run- 
ning as a two-year-old at 
Goodwood and I swore be would 
never go there again" said Chris 


BelL, bis Sparshott trainer. Bell 
said the next objective for 
Rotherfield Greys will either be 
tbe Banda Stud Stakes at 
Phoenix Park, or a race at 
Newcastle. 

Sheikh Mohammed provided 
two runners for the Mail On 
Sunday Three-Year-Old Series 
Handicap, from no original en- 
try of four, and they finished 
first and second. 

London Bus, trained by Bin 
Watts at Rich mood, started 2-1 
favourite, hot found the top 
weight, Michael Stonte's chal- 
lenger, Shafy, a length too good 
for him. The Sheikh's pair were 
home by Hello Benz. 

It was three furlongs out that 
London Bos look command from 
the pace making Foremast. He 
successfully fought off Lucky So 
So, but just inside the final 
furlong had to give way to Shafy. 

Wans was far from dis- 
appointed with the showing of 
London Bus. “He was beaten by 


a better horse on the day, bat is a 
genuine toagh performer - a 
Cambridgeshire type," he said. 

QiiiM Time, who found 
Mins trella too good for him in 
the Chesham Stakes at Royal 
Ascot, was soon back on tbe 
winning traiL Tbe locally-owned 
colt easily landed odds of 1 1-8 
laid on him against three oppo- 
nents in the Black Dock Stakes. 

Mark Birch_ had this 3,400 
guineas ba rgain colt smartly 
away to make aO the running 
and score by six lengths from 
Glow Again, who had won her 
three previous races. 

“I bad intended resting Chime 
Time after Ascot, but he came 
back so fresh that I thought it 
would do him no harm to run 
here. He is the best horse I've 
ever trained, and I have entered 
him for the Gimcrack Stakes 
here in August. A more immedi- 
ate objective will probably be the 
Strathclyde Stakes at Ayr later 
this mouth," his trainer, Colin 
Tinkler, said.-

Antheus faces a strong chal- 
lenge from the three-year-old 
brigade in tomorrow's Prix 
Maurice de Nieuil at Saint- 
Cloud. but Criquette Head's 
four-year-old looks up to the 
task (Our French Racing 
Correspondent writes). 

He was beaten a short head by 

Triptych at Lortgchamp last 
month and had Baby Turk the 
same distance away in third. 
Thai form now appears top class 
as Triptych and Baby Turk have 
both run with distinction in 
England in the last week. 


Altayan is the obvious danger 
even if he was below par in last 
Sunday's Grand Prix de Saint- 
Cloud. 

Zahdam. from Guy 
Harwood's stable, is on a 
retrieving mission, having run 
his only poor race when way 
behind Fast Topaze in the 
Dubai Poule d'Essai des

Gay Minstrel, who is also 
trained by Criquette Head, can 
get tbe weekend off to a good 
start by landing the Prix 
Messidor at Maisons-Laffnte.

CRICKET 


Faldo swinging 
towards end 
of an unhappy 
chapter 


By Mitchell Platts 


Nick Faldo took a positive 
step towards dosing the un- 
ha ppiesi chapter of his profes- 
sional career by produdng a 
third round of 67 in the Car 
Care Plan International on the 
Moortown Course in Leeds 
yesterday. 

It was not only Faldo's golf 
which suggested that he is on 
the threshold of ending a 
frustrating period of more 
than two years without a. win, 
but also his attitude of mind. 

Even when Faldo was 
obliged to back away from a 
pun on three occasions on the 
last green, as the sound from 
the televisions in the hospital-

ity stand broke the silence, he 
refused to be intimidated by 
the interruptions. Faldo even- 
tually putted out and he 
explained: “I could hear Tony 
Jacklin saying ‘He’s got a 
knee-knocking putt there’, 
then the producer obviously 
switched to another hole and 
the next thing I heard was 
Bruce Critchley’s voice. I just 
sent a message to them to turn 
the sound down.” 

ATHLETICS 

Skeete can 
benefit 
from ban 

By Cliff Temple 

The English Schools champ- 
ionships at Portsmouth yes- 
terday was lightly touched by 
the withdrawal of Nigeria from 
the Commonwealth Games. As 
Lesley-Ann Skeete skimmed to 
an easy victory in her heal of the 
senior girls 100m hurdles in 
[4.0sec. it confirmed that the 
crowd were watching a potential 
Edinbuigh medal winner, even 
gold, now Maria Usifo. the No. 

1 ranked Commonwealth hur- 
dler has been removed from the 
competition. 

Miss Skeete has just finished 
A-level exams in accountancy at 
Midfield SchooL Somerset She 
was easily the fastest qualifier in 
yesterday's heats and should 
take what would be, curiously, 
only her second English Schools 
title in six appearances today. 

But now a greater prize looks 
possible. “Lesley realizes there 
is now a chance of her winning 
the Commonwealth title.” said 
Brian Hall, her coach. “Sally 
Gunnell. Wendy Jeal. and Les- 
ley have been so close all season 
you could throw a blanket over 
them." They finished in that 
order in the UK and women's 
.AAA championships this sea- 
son. 

“It's a shame that Maria will 
not be at the Commonwealth 
Games because whatever hap- 
pens now people will say it's 
only because she didn't run.” 
said Lesley. More immediately, 
though, her target today is to 
break the championship record 
of 1 3.7sec which she shares with 
five other athletes including. 
Gun-nell and JeaL her two 
Edinburgh team mates. To wipe 
their names, from the book 
would mean a toe ahead, 
perhaps. 

Some members of Britain's 
world junior championship 
team who were due to compete 
in Portsmouth made late 
withdrawals, including Wendy 
Wright and Lynne Robinson, 
the distance runners and Peter 
Crampion, from the 400m. 

But Johan Boakes, the Brigh- 
ton middle distance runner aged 
18. was not to be denied his 
attempt to lift the senior 1500m 
crown even though he too leaves 
for Athens on Sunday. Yes- 
terday he made light work of 

S iualifying for today's final be- 
bre leaving to spend a night in 
his own bed. Not many compet- 
itors are fortunate enough to 
live so near, but Boakes. in the 
manner of Steve Ovett, his 
Phoenix Athletic Club inspira- 
tion. did not let the opportunity 
pass to improve bis chances.

It provided important evi- 
dence that with the final pieces 
of the jigsaw neatly fitting into 
shape regarding his remod- 
elled swing so the self-restraint 
thtii he will require to chal- 
lenge for the Open Champion- 
ship next week is rapidly 
returning 

More importantly. Faldo’s 
confidence will surely be given 
a considerable lift if he can 
collect the first prize of 
£18,330 today, when he will 
set opt sharing the lead with 
Graham Marsh and Vaughan 
Somers, both of Australia, and 
the American Bill Malley. who 
are all on the 206 mark. 

In truth there have been the 
occasional moments this sea- 
son when Faldo has appeared . 
poised to end his losing streak. 
He elbowed his way imo^ 
contention in Houston and' 
New Orleans, on the United 
Slates circuit, then again last 
week in the French Open. 

“1 feel that my attitude is 
good at the moment," he said. 
“I'm shooting for the flag, 
which is always a good sign, 
and I'm accepting whatever 
happens. The way that this 
course is burnt means that it 
remotely resembles links golf 
and at Turn berry next week 
there are bound to be breaks in 
your favour and bad ones 
which need to be accepted." 

Faldo more than compen- 
sated for dropping shots at the 
third and 14th holes, where on 
each occasion his ball kicked 
unkindly under a tree, by 
collecting four birdies. He had 
fours at both the long first and 
10th holes by virtue of playing* 
two deft pitches over bunkers, 
and he holed from IS feet at 



Striding back: a happier Faldo during his 67 yesterday 


the fifth and then from 25ft at 
the 16th. 

' Marsh won on the corre- 
sponding week last year and 
his prospects of repealing that 
act. following a 66. have been 
increased with the return of 
his putting touch. He has 
struggled on the greens for 
most of this year, but he 
finally coaxed the ball borne 
from distances ranging be- 
tween 30 and 35 feet for two 
birdies and one eagle in the 
first five holes. 

Sam Torrance, like Faldo, 
has been desperately searching 
for a change in fortune. There 
has been little to fault in his 
game from tee to green but he 
has been mystified by his lack

Taking the 
long way 
to a short 
final 

From Jim Railton 

Lucerne * - 

The Lucerne Roisee regatta, 
'which began yesterday, has been 
designed to blunt the denre ot 
competitors inclined towards 
specializing in the 500 metres 
sprint The route to today’s final 
was through preliminaries held 
yesterday over 2,000 metres 
respite of there being separate 
2,000 metres preliminaries to- 
day for tomorrow's final over 
that distance. 

The regatta here is being 
televised and the 500 metres, 
with its close finishes, tends to 
make more exciting viewing. 
Although there are few regattas 
at present which include 500 
metres racing on the pro- 
gramme, it seems likely that this 
distance will become increas- 
ingly popular and devalue the 
more traditional 2,000 metres. 

Top competitors, such as the 
Olympic champion. Pertti 
Karppinen. from Finland, and j 
the former world champion 
sculler, Peter-Michad Kolbe. ! 
from West Germany, have 
understandably ignored the 500 
metres. They cherish the sport 
as it is. .or perhaps, in the light of 
what is happening here, as it 
was. 

Some of the 2,000 metres 
heals (for the 500 metres final) 
were dull but Great Britain 
started on an encouraging note 
in the lightweight women's dou- 
ble sculls when Gill Bond and 
Carrie- An a Wood won the first 
race ahead of West Germany 
and Austria. In the heavyweight 
women's coxless pairs, Britain's 
Jackie Prout and Ruth Howe 
qualified behind Romania and 
Pauline Bird and Fiona 
Johnstone also qualified. 

More British successes were 
to follow in these bizarre elimi- 
nators. Nottinghamshire’s Carl 
Smith and Alan Whitwell won 
their heat in the lighweight 
double sculls, while Robin Wil- 
liams and Steve Chilmaid quali- 
fied in the other. London's 
lightweight sculler, John Mel- i 
vin. finished second in his heat | 
and was eliminated over a j 
length down on the 34-year-old 
Austrian. Raimund Haber!, a 
former world champion. The 
men's British lightweight 
coxless four was a length short 
of qualifying too. 

Kingston set Britain's men's 
heavyweights on the right road, 
qualifying behind Czecho- 
slovakia and ahead of France in 
the coxed fours. The Tideway 
scullers coxed four was elimi- 
nated. Britain's world silver 
medal winners. Martin Cross 
and Adam Clift were the fastest 
coxless pair, holding off East 
Germany and Italy. 

Redgrave and Holmes were in 
a class of their own in the coxed 
pairs, ahead of Romania and the 
Soviet Union. The British 
heavyweight eight won their 
heat ahead of East Germany and 
France and, in a delayed race, 
London University’s Tyrian ' 
coxless four went into the final 
finishing a good third behind 
East Germany and the Soviet 
Union.

Pernfors falls 
at hands of 
fellow Swede 

Gstaad (AP) — Jan Gunnars- 
son. of Sweden, reached the 
semi-finals of the Swiss open 
here yesterday by beating his 
fellow countryman. Mikael 
Pernfors. the No.3 seed. 7-6. 1-6. 
7-6. 

Pernfors had backhand prob- 
lems throughout the match but 
said afterwards that, he was not 
disappointed to loser to 
Gunnarsson. “A few months 
ago we were at about the same 
level." Pernfors said.' “Then I 
moved up and he dropped back 
in the ATP rankings but there 
was never a big gap." 

Gunnarsson was regaining the 
good form he showed before 
being laid low by a bout of 
chicken-pox early this year. His 
semi-final opponent will be the 
top seed. Stefan Ed berg, who 
had little trouble against the 
unseeded Damir Keretic. of 
West Germany, in his quarter 
final. Ed berg won in straight 
sets. 6-4. 6-1. 

In the third quarter-final 
match. Emilio Sanchez, of 
Spain, the fourth seed, elimi- 
nated Jakob Hlasek. seeded six, 
of Switzerland, 6-3. 6-7. 7-6.

Careless Minors 
make it easy 
for New Zealand 


By Michael Berry 

LAKENHAM: New Zealand 
fan ihe Minor Counties by ten 
wickets. 

The Minor Counties col- 
lapsed disappointingly in losing 
their last nine wickets for only 
59 runs to allow the New 
Zealanders, even without sev- 
eral key players, to easily 
achieve the second win of their 
tour. , 

The Minors looked 
favourably resplendent for their 
team picture, their smart 
tracksuits benevolently spon- 
sored by J & B Scotch whisky of 
whom Surridge is an employee. 
But some of their baning was 
nothing less than slovenly in 
comparison. 

The tourists declared on then- 
overnight score, giving them a 
first innings lead of 125. Despite 
a promising start, the Minors 
saw their major batting vanish 
either side of lunch after Todd, 
Plumb and Greensword had 
shown straight bats and good 
sense in taking them to 82 for 
one. Roope ran himself out in a 
moment of rashness, 
Greensword played the wrong 
line against a straight one frpro 
Barrett to lose his middle stump 
and both Patel and Riddell 
departed to unnecessary forcing 
shots. 

Gray continued his consid- 
erable impact on the game by 
taking four of the wickets to 
return match figures of nine for 
J06. this too after spending the 
opening hour off the field with a 
stomach upset. But only the odd 
ball turned sharply and the 
seamers has to graft for the least 
reward off a dry and slow 


wicket. Barrett, a tall bowler 
who was a surprise choice in the. 
tour party, picking up three 
wickets. 

The formality, of scoring 17 
runs for victory saw non-bats- 
men and -non-bowlers play out : 
the last riiQL The day, again 
watched by a. good crowd, if . 
smaller than the first two days, 
was over soon after 3pm.

successive year. 

Wales, who made several 
changes, gave England some 
anxious moments, for despite 
their earlier victories 3gaRi$t 
Ireland and Scotland, the cham- 
pions still had to finish ahead in 
their last game to assure them- 
selves of the title once again. 

England ted.by only eight 
shots at the talfway stage bm 
surged further ahead across the 
green in the closing stages. Their 
rinks, skipped by John BeD and 
Alan Windsor, once again won 
their games to achieve 100 per

Indians beat off a 
Scottish challenge 


DUMFRIES: The Indians beat 
Scotland by 52 runs. | 

Scotland will not be hoping 
for more of the same when India 
make their next visit in 1989. 
India's pugnacious 

wicketkeeper More, who gave 
England plenty of trouble with 
the bat in the Test- series, took 
three catches and took two 
brilliant siumpings as the tour- 
ists won the second of the two 
limited over matches by 52 runs 
aL Dumfries. But the man-of- 
the-match award went to 
Sharma for the second of two 
half-centuries in India's 21 1 for 
nine- 

Opening batsman Lamba 
scored the other but India did 
not find nm-gening easy against 
Scotland, who caused a few 
surprises in this summer’s Ben- 
son and Hedges Cup. The Scots, 
beaten by three wickets on 
Thursday, made a consistent 
but unspectuacular batting ef- 
fort which never threatened 
cricket's one-day world 
champions. » .

Repton just in time 

Schools cricket by George Chesterton 


The second battalion Ulster 
Defence Regiment completed a 
successful week's shooting at. 
Bisley yesterday by winning the 
King’s Royal Rifle Corps Cup, - 
the .major unit championship of 
the Army, beating the Ghurkas - 
by one match point 

It was a particular disappoint- - 
meat for the Brigade of 

Ghurkas, whose units had Won - 
the overall title for six yean 
until' the Webb Guards- took. - 
over m l 983. 

• This year The Welsh .Guanfe 
were not there, but the Ulster-, 
men, who hove been making 
steady progress in Army com- - 
petitions over recent years, woe 
. on top form.-' Their sergeant 
major,- David Beattie, came near 
to winning (he Queen's Medal 
but the new champion. Corporal 
David BeU, first King's Own 
Border Regiment, had buHt op 
an unassailable, lead. 

The other two Queen's Medal 
winners, both second time 
champions, had also led the 
initial stages. Petty Officer. 
Christopher Privett, the -Royal. 
Navy winner, finished with an : 
advantage of 26 points, but)^; 
Corporal John Prictor, the RAF* 
champion, was only three points 
ahead of the runner-np. ..

Aggressive bowling and keen 
fielding gave Repton victory 
over Malvern by 101 runs 
yesterday, the last wicket falling 
with only five balls left. 

Repton. the visitors, were put 
in to bat on a wicket lively from 
overnight rain. Cook was out in 
the first over and although 
Repton consolidated they never 
looked happy until Wall got into 
his stride. 

It was certainly his day. In his 
excellent innings of 98 he sur- 
vived four difficult chances and 


one easy one. He even had his 
stumps hiu but the bails stayed 
in place. He was severe on 
anything over-pitched and 
scored 16 boundaries. The Mal- 
vern bowlers stuck well to their 
task until the declaration came 
at 210 for nine. 

As the Malvern innings began 
the wicket continued to give 
help to the bowlers

The man who

■r¥ 


Frank Williams was taken 
to Brands Hatch yesterdayfor 
his first visit to a motor race 
since the car accident last 
March thatleft him paralysed 
and confined to a wheelchair. 
He wanted to see for himself 
the performance of his team 
who. during his absence, have 
won four of this season's eight 
races. The first qualifying 
period for tomorrow's Shell 
Oils British Grand Prix was an 
ideal Opportunity- 
Wheeled to a vantage point 
behind the Goodyear 
motorhome which overlooked 
the bottom straight, and 
armed with a monitor display- 
ing the Longines electronic 
timing readout, he was given 
an hour of the best possible 
therapy as he watched Nelson

that if the weather remains dry 
for the final qualifying today 
the circuit will be faster and 
Piquet's time will have to be 
improved upon by anyone 
aiming for pole position. 

"I certainly aim to be 
having a big go myself” 
Mansell said. "If only I can get 
a clear lap.” Meanwhile, if he 
remains third on the grid it 
may be a good omen because 
that was his position last 
October when he went on to 
score his first grand prix 
victory at Brands Hatch.

spite being badly balked by 
traffic and having to overtake

Williams was full of admira- 
tion for his team's overall 
achievement "In fact they 
seem to be doing even better 
without me.” he joked, “and 
Nigel's recent performances 
have been quite magnificent” 

At this stage in his convales-

running of his team. “I am

gave him considerable encour- 
agement on a circuit which he 
knows welL “It is good to be 
"back on familiar ground,” he 
told me afterwards. “I felt we 
began to make some solid 
progress in France last week- 
end and we have been more or 
less on the pace from the start 
here at Brands Hatch.” Senna 
was far from content with his 
car, which was over-steering 
excessively and left him only 
fourth quickest in die provi- 
sional line-up. 

Aerodynamic changes be- 
neath the nose of his car and 
softer springs considerably 
benefited the handling and 
traction of Martin Brundle's 
Data General Tyrrell, which is 
ninth quickest, one place be- 
hind Dumfries. “‘The car defi- 
nitely felt better today,” 
BrancQe told me. “In fact. I 
think we've got it -just about 
right mechanically and any 
further improvement will al- 
most certainly come from 
more work on the aerodynam- 
ics. The trouble is, this all 
takes time.” 

Derek Warwick had a diffi- 
cult time with his Brabham- 
BMW, including a dutch 
problem, without which be 
should have improved a lot on 
his sixteenth place in the line- 
up while his team partner, 
Riccardo Patrese. elected to 
qualify one of last season's 
BT54 cars in preference to his 
tow-line 1986 model. i

Stefan Johansson just man- 


aged to get into the top 10 with 
his Ferrari ahead of his col- 
league, Michele Alboreto, but 
both had to work hard to 
overcome the handling defi- 
ciencies of their undeniably 
powerful cars. Jacques Laffite, 
the veteran among contempo- 
rary drivers, had an eventful 
day without a great deal to 
show for iL In the preliminaiy

afternoon. Yesterday I had 
some movement in my wrists 
for the first time, so I must 
continue to be patient Maybe 
in six months I will have some 
more movement below the 
shoulders and in the arms and 
then I can start to make a real 
nuisance of myself again.” 

Brands Hatch is a difficult 
circuit on which it is wise to 
build up to maximum perfor- 
mance in carefully controlled 
stages and yesterday it seemed 
to be more than usually 
slippery. Mansell is convinced 


but his time (1:17357) was annulled 
because of a breach of safety 


regulations). 


Again one of the best perfor- 
mances in qualifying came 
from Gerhard Berger, whose 
Benetton-BMW has split the 
two Williams and bolds sec- 
ond place on the grid. His was 
by far the fastest of the Pirelli- 
shod cars and if he can find 
race reliability it could give 
the fancied Goodyear-tyred 
cars a good ran for their 
money tomorrow.

a water leak caused by a

Charity 

match 


. For a week, the sprinters in 
the Tour de France have 
awaited an opening to display 
their skills to the world. 
Yesterday, on the Boulevard 
des Americains, Eddy Planc- 
kaert and Eric Vanderverden, 
the frustrated Belgian team 
mates finally fought out the 
duel they had awaited for 
almost 1,000 miles. 

They were given the open- 
ing by their Dutch team mates 
who were largely responsible 
for damping the many attacks 
that punctuated the final 40 
miles of the 127 mile eighth 
stage through Brittany. 

*Tve never known a stage of 
the Tour that fast," exclaimed 
Sean Yales, the British rider 
still sweating from staying 
with the pack on the hottest 
day of the week. Yates fin- 
ished near the back of the 1 84- 
strong group, from which 
Planckaert won the stage by 
the narrowest of margins from 
three other Belgians. Yates 
added: “The pace never let up 
all day”. 

The first move was started 
by Steve Bauer but after being 
caught after 35 miles, the 
Canadian again headed a 
breakaway group, but with as 
much success as the first 
attack. Curiously, Planckaert 


Des Sea brook, coach to 
England's B team last season, 
will step up as a full national 
selector next season along 
with Tony Jorden. They will 
join Michael Weston, chair- 
man of the selectors and 
Martin Green, the national 
coach, as the focal points of 
England's World Cup playing 
management committee and 
restore to four the selection 
panel which was made up last 
season of Weston. Green and 
Brian Ashton, the latter hav- 
ing been forced to retire 
because of business 
commitments. 


The new appointments were 
decided before yesterday's an- 
nual meeting in London of the 
Rugby Football Union, along 
with the decision to retain 
associate selectors, a system 
introduced last season. The 
associates next season will be 
Alan Brinn. of Gloucester, 
John Elliott and Alan Davies, 
his Nottingham colleague, 
who will also take charge of 
the B team.

Several of England's top 
coloured players have been 
banned from taking part in a 
fund-raising match in Jamai- 
ca. John Barnes, Brian Stein 
and Ricky Hill, who have all 
played for England, have been 
refused permission b; their 
dubs to gorest for a Jamaican 
all-star XI against Lima, the 
Permian champions. 

Graham Taylor, the Wat- 
ford manager, was alarmed to 
discover that Barnes, who was 
born in Jamaica, had flown to 
the West Indies without seek- 
ing clearance to play in 
tomorrow’s game, which is to 
raise funds for the Jamaican 
flood disaster. Lnton were also 
concerned to find Stein and 
Hill booked to play and con- 
tacted the Football Associa- 
tion for help. As all the players 
are under contract they would 
need permission from their 
chibs to take part

In previous years Davies 
would also have taken respon- 
sibility for the under-23 team 
but the RFO has decided to do 
away with a representative 
team at that level. The general 
feeling, after some dozen years 
of under-23 competition, is 
that under-2 1 would be a more 
appropriate stepping-stone af- 
ter schools and colts rugby. 
Scotland have ran an under- 
21 team for the last decade 
and Wales are developing that 
area of their game. Moreover, 
under-2 1 rugby is now being 


run at! county and dub level in 
an increasing number of areas 
in England. 

Seabrook, from Lancashire, 
might have occupied such a 
prominent fxwition before 
now but for tbe fact that his 
coaching career suffered at the 
time of David Lord’s project- 
ed professional circus m 1983. 
Seabrook coached the B and 
under-23 teams last season 
and gained considerable assis- 
tance at senior squad sessions. 
Jorden, the former England 
frill back, was made a national 
selector for the 1984-5 season, 
became an associate selector 
when the national panel was 
trimmed last season, and now 
returns at the higher leveL 

Davies, the newcomer, at 
this level occasioned consid- 
erable discussion in official 
circles as to the merits of a 
Welshman acting as an En- 
glish selector. He was bom in a 
mining family in Ynysybwl 
but moved to the Nottingham 
area when he was 1 1. going to 
school at Carilon-le-Wiltows. 
spending 10 years in the RAF 
and then resuming his educa- 
tion at Loughborough Univer- 
sity. He is now director of PE 
at Trent College, and has 
coached the Nottingham club 
for the last nine years. 

The annual meeting ac- 


Malcolm • Pyrah today 
hopes to move one step closer 
to the individual world cham- 
pionship title which narrowly 
eluded him at Dublin four 
years ago. Pyrah, second bn 
that occasion, is in fourth 
place, one point behind Nick 
Skelton on Raffles Apollo, and 
less than two points behind 
the.leader. 

Michael Whitaker is m l 1th 
place; but, as all three riders 
know only too well the order 
can change dramatically after 
today's competition. Four 
years ago, Gary Mullins, of 
Ireland, moved from 14th 
place to fourth — a feat be will 
have in mind today as he is in 
10th place. At the end of 
today’s competition, which is 
a grand prix followed by a 
bigger puissance course, the 
top four riders qualify for 
tomorrow’s final in which 
they «*eh have, to ride each of 
tbe other four horses. 

It was this last round — only 
used at the .world champion- 
ships — which defeated Pyrah 
ai Dublin. A small slight man. 
he . had difficulty riding 
Fire,the big Westphalian geld- 
ing, belonging to the Norbert 
Koof, of West Germany, who 
eventually won the title. Not 
surprisingly, Pyrah dislikes 
this formula, and thinks the 
European method — which 
does not involve a. change of 
horses— is a more reliable way 
of finding a champion. He has 
a point: Koof has hardly 
featured on the international 
scene since winning the' title, 
whereas Paul Schockeniohle. 
the three-times winner of the 
European title, has remained 
consistently nl the top of the 
spon. 

This year, with Koof unable 
to defendhis title because Fire 
is injured, and with 
Schockemohle out of tbe com- 
petition, it is the Americans, 
the new world champions, 
together with Pierre Durand, 
of France, tbe leader, who 
pose the biggest threat to the 
British. The most threatening 
of the Americans is Conrad 
Homfeld, on Abdullah, his 15- 
year-old Trakefanerstaflioa. 

Homfeld. who was a mem- 
ber of the team which won the 

S lid medal at the Los Angeles 
lympic Games (he also took 
the individual silver) has 
looked every bit as convincing 
as Skelton and Pyrah from the 
onset of these championships.

will Games does not extend

boosted by another £42,446 to 
make McMenemy probably 
the highest paid manager in 
tfre country. 


now broke clear on his own 47 
miles from Nantes and ground 
out a lead of more than a 
minute before the rest reacted. 

The final attack was led by 
Silvano Comini' the Italian, 
but soon the sprinters had 
been paced to the from and 
they fought out a thrilling 
uphill dash. It was the 
Panasonic team which pro- 
ved the strongest and it was 
expected that Vanderverdcn. 
who is leading the overall 
points competition, would 
score his first victory of the 
race. Bui he could not match 
the final effort from Planc- 
kaert. who seemed none the 
worse for his earlier attack. 

The overall race leader is 
still Joigen Pedersen, toe 
Dane aged 27. but he will be 
hard pressed to retain his 
yellow jersey in today’s vital 
3S-mile time trial against Lau- 
rent Fignon and Bernard 
Hinauh of France, the past 
Tour winners. Pedersen said: 
”J was twice toe time trial 
champion of Denmark as an 
amateur, but I have never 
fully extended myself in pro- 
fessional time trials. I think 
my chances are 50-50.” 


Sydney (Reuter) — Hugo 
Porta, Argentina's inspiration- 
al captain and stand-off half, 
has been ruled out of the 
second and final international 
against Australia today. 

Porta was forced to leave 
the field midway through the 
second half of the first interna- 
tional in Brisbane on Sunday 
with a recurrence of a leg 
injury which has troubled him 
on tour. 

Porta will be missed not 
only for his leadership and 
skill, but also his point-scoring 
ability from conversions and 
drop-goals. His position will 


be filled by Rafael Madero. 
who will also assume the 
captaincy. 

Argentina have made three 
changes to toe pack who 
playal in the first internation- 
al which Australia won 39-19. 
Fernando Morel the prop, 
Ernesto Ure. toe lock and 
Tomas Petersen, the flank 
forward, are replaced by 
Serafin Dengra, Gustavo Mi- 
lano and Alejandro Schiavo, 
who will be making his inter- 
national debut. 

Australia won in Brisbane 


despite allowing the touring 
team to fight back from a 30-5 
half-time deficit
