members of the Queen's staff 
had let her down by giving 
The Sunday Times an account 
of her alleged view of Mrs 
Thatcher's policies. 

Some Tory MPs claimed 
that the inspiration for the 
report, which stated that the 
Queen believes the Prime 
Minister's approach to be 
uncaring, confrontational and 
socially divisive, had come 
from figures in the Conserva- 
tive Party who were out to 
discredit their leader. 

Mr Michael Shea, the 
Queen’s Press Secretary, giv- 
ing a press briefing yesterday 
about tomorrow’s royal wed- 
ding arrangements, refused to 
answer questions about the 
reported rift or about the 
manner in which it was 
leaked. 

When a journalist said it 
had been suggested that- Mr 
Shea might be the ’mole’, he 
said: “I am simply not going to 
answer questions on this sub- 
ject here today." 

Asked whether the wedding 
would be maned by the 
controversy, he said: “1 am 
absolutely certain that it will 
not. I am sure k is going to be a 
happy day. The Royal Family 
are all looking forward to it 
enormously." .

a brief discussion on the issue

Wakeham Chief Whip, and

Downing Street yesterday 
maintained its refusal to com- 
ment on The Sunday Times 
report Mrs Thatcher will also 
follow her practice of not 
speaking about her relations 
with the Queen if pressed in 
the Commons ipday during 
question time. 

But the issue, which is 
causing huge embarrassment

in the Government and in 
royal circles, will certainly be 
raised when Mrs Thatcher 
meets the Queen for her 
regular audience at Bucking- 
ham Palace tonight They will 
meet again later in the evening 
at a dinner at the Palace in 
honour of Mrs Nancy Reagan, 
wife of the American 
President 

Mr Ian Gow, Mrs 
Thatcher's former parliamen- 
tary private secretary and still 
one of her closest confidants, 
suggested yesterday that the 
report might be part of a wider 
Tory plot 

He said: “If the Sunday 
Times story is true — and I 
have to believe it is — then the 
person who gave this briefing 
to die. Sunday Times has 
behaved with massive 
impropriety. 

“Bui there are certainly 
some grandees in the Tory 


Party who rejoice at the Prime 
Minister's discomfort That 
such grandees might have 
been in touch with a certain 
person at the Palace is some- 
thing which 1 cannot exclude ” 
A member of the executive 
of the 1922 Committee of 
Tory MPs said dial the Queen 
had been betrayed by some- 
one on her staff. “It would be 
surprising ifthe Queen did not 
have views on sanctions 
against South Africa, but 
defies belief to think that she 
would have wanted her views 
on this or any other matters to 
be made public in the way it 
was. She has been let down.” 

Other Conservative MPs 
were demanding that the cul- 
prit must be exposed. Mr 
Anthony Beaumont-Dark, 
MP for Birmingham Selly 
Oak, said: '‘Somebody must 
go. It is absolutely certain that 
if the Queen does not dismiss 
one or several of her advisers 
it will be dear that the leaks 
were with her blessing. 

“If they do not go the 
implications are that the 
Queen or some high member 
of the Royal Family sanc- 
tioned the leak.” 

Mr Nicholas Fairbaim. MP 
for Perth and Kinross, said: 
“If the sources are unimpeach- 
able as the editor of The 
Sunday Times says, then the 
sources must be impeached. It 
is a set-up. It is an attempt to 
cause the Prime Minister the 
maximum damage with the 
minimum scruples.” 

Mr John Stokes, MP for 
Halesowen and Stourbridge, 
sai± “Some people will stop at 
nothing to denigrate the Prime 
Minister.” 

The crisis has given added 
significance to the Prime 
Minister’s traditional end-of- 
term address to the 1922 
Committee on Thursday

A£2m bill 
for boycott 
countries 

By Ronald Faux 
As the number of nations 
boycotting the Common- 
wealth Games in Edinburgh 
approached the halfway mark 
yesterday, Mr Robert Max- 
well, co-chairman of the 
Games announced that coun- 
tries boycotting the sports 
would receive a £2 million 
bill. 

He said this would be for 
the cash shortage the “stay- 
aways” would cause. 

Mr Maxwell said the gov- 
ernments which had pulled 
out ofEdinburgh had caused a 
great deal of inconvenience 
and loss. “I have a financial 


Annette Cowley, the Sonth 
African-born swimmer, will 
learn today whether the High 
Court challenge to her Com- 
monwealth Games ban has 
been successful. 

Zola Bndd, the athlete, is 
awaiting the outcome of Miss 
Cowley’s case before deciding 
whether to take similar action. 


responsibility. This is a money 
matter not a sporting matter," 
he said. 

At present 1,670 competi- 
tors and officials from 28 01 
the 58 countries invited are in 
the Games village. 

At last night's count the 
maximum number of coun- 
irieslhat may be competing is 
31, although teams from Bru- 
nei, Grenada and Gibraltar 
have not yet arrived. 

Yesterday the boycotting 
nations rose to 27 as die 
Seychelles, Cyprus and Sn 
Lanka joined their ranks. _ 

The boycott over the British 
Government's refusal to im- 
pose sanctions against South 
Africa had already caused 
some Games sponsors to with- 
draw their backing and Mr

£100m cut 
in one-off 
benefits 

By Nicholas Wood 
Political Reporter 

A social security crackdown 
aimed at saving £100 million 
a year by curbing one-off 
payments for household goods 
was announced yesterday by 
Mr Antony Newton, Minister 
for Social Security. 

It provoked angry ex- 
changes in the Commons with 
Labour members accusing 
ministers of behaving dis- 
gracefully in robbing the poor 
to pay for tax cuts for the rich. 
A debate on the new Social 
Security Bill is to coincide 
with the royal wedding 
tomorrow. 

Mr Michael Meacher, La- 
bour spokesman on social 
services, said the move wonM 
cause “intense and wide- 
spread hardship” to the most 
vulnerable members of soci- 
ety. He branded it one of the 
harshest measures yet taken 
by the Government. 

Mr Newton said that the 
number of claims for items 
such as furniture and bedding 
from people on supplemen- 
tary benefit rose to four mil- 
lion at a cost of more than 
£300 million last year, four 
times the levels of 1979. The 
rate of payments per claimant 
had more than doubled over 
the same period. 

He told MPs: “It is increas- 
ingly perceived as unfair to 
others on incomes little or no 
higher than supplementary 
benefit, to whom no compara- 
ble help is available.” 

Under the Bill, such pay- 
ments would come out of the 
new social fond, but in the 
meantime the Government 
was tightening up the qualify- 
ing rules. From August 11, 
payments would only be made 
to those clearly in need such as 
pensioners, the sick and dis-

‘Thatcher 
factor’ 
hits City 

By David Smith 
Economics Correspondent 
Shares and the pound fell 
sharply again yesterday amid 
mounting City coocera over 
the Government's electoral 
prospects. Doubts on the econ- 
omy also weighed heavily, 
despite a sharp rise in retail 
sales to new highs last month. 

Political uncertainties ap- 
pear to outweigh worries on 
the economy in the present 
nervousness on the financial 
markets. Mrs Thatcher's posi- 
tion on Sonth African sanc- 
tions, and the constitutional 
questions it has raised, have 
added to the doubts created by 
the Government’s poor show- 
ing in the Newcastle under 
Lyme by-election. 

These, and hints from the 
Chancellor, Mr Nigel Lawson. 


Retail sales soar 17 

Wall Street gain 18 

Stock Market report 19 


that Mrs Thatcher should aim 
for a 1988 election, have been 
interpreted as signs of the 
Government’s increasing 
vulnerability. 

The pound fell to a record 
low of 3.1806 against the 
mark, three pfennigs down on 
Friday’s close. The sterling 
index dropped by 0.2 to 73, its 
lowest since early March. 

Against a weak dollar, the 
pound's fall was restricted to a 
third of a cent, to $1.5010. 
Later, in New York, the pound 
closed at $1.4950, down 10 
points. 

The Financial Times 30- 
share index dropped by 19.1 
points to 1,276 3. According to 
calculations by the City infor- 
mation service Datastream, 
£4.4 billion was wiped off 
share values after a £33 
billion drop last Friday. 

Official figures showing a 
3.2 per cent jnmp in the 
volume of retail safes last 
month failed to cheer the 
markets. Retail sales recorded 
their largest monthly rise for 
four and a half years after two 
successive monthly declines. 

Sales were 53 per cent np 
on a year, earlier. Weekly 
spending last month averaged 
£1,740 million, compared with 
£1,680 million in May. The

for peace talks 
with King Hassan 

From Ian Murray, Jerusalem 

Mr Shimon Peres, the Israc- and explained that his corn-

Morocco last night for a 
meeting with King Hassan. 
the current chairman of the 
Arab League. His small dele- 
gation. including some jour- 
nalists. slipped unnoticed out 
of Israel while most of the 
nation's leaders were at Ben 
Gurion Airport to watch the 
unveiling of the new Israeli 
Lavi fighter. 

Mr Peres arrived at Fez 
shortly before midnight local 
time and was expected to 
spend 48 hours largely in 
meetings with the King and 
his immediate advisers. 

A meeting between the two 
has long been suggested as a 
way of breaking the deadlock 
in the Middle East peace 
process. The King is known to 
have been in regular contact 
with Mr PCrcs. who has twice 
in the past met him — most 
recently in March. I9SI. The 
previous meetings, however, 
were held in secret ■ 

Last November the King 
went on record as saying he 
was ready to meet Mr Peres 
again “if he has a serious 
proposal to make”. The King 
said at the time that the Israeli 
leader had “sent word that he 
would like to see me. I replied 
that 1 would receive him with 
great pleasure, but fold him 
“you and I cannot be 
tourists’." 

The following day, howev- 
er, the King, under intense 
pressure from the Arab 
League, withdrew his offer

ments were only a 
indication that the Arab side 
was open to discussions. 

Since then Mr Peres has 
been increasingly frustrated by 
the lack of progress in the 
peace process. With only three 
months to go before he is due 
10 hand over as Prime Minis- 
ter to Mr Yitzhak Shamir, the 
Likud leader, he has been 
working hard behind the 
scenes fora breakthrough. 

With the clear failure of 
King Husain of Jordan to find 
a new- Palestinian leadership 
apart from the Palestine Lib- 
eration Organization to 
launch negotiations, and with 
Egypt dragging its feet on 
normalizing relations, the Is- 
raeli Prime Minister has de- 
spaired of making the 
breakthrough he wanted be- 
fore losing the premiership. 

He has therefore tried again 
with King Hassan. warning 
him that unless the Arab side

peace once Mr Shamir takes 
over. 

The King, who is consid- 
ered in Israel to be more 
understanding than most oth- 
er Arab leaders because of the 
large Jewish population in his 
country', has been helpful in 
the past. 

He made Moroccan soil 
available for the meeting be- 
tween Moshc Dayan and 
Hassan Tohami. which paved 
the way for President Sadat's 
historic journey to Jerusalem.

California 
hit by 
new quake 

Bishop, California (AH — 
An earthquake rumbled 
through a wide region of 
central California yesterday, 
destroying homes and opening 
fissures that stranded campers 
and swallowed a pickup lorry. 

There were no reports of 
injuries in the quake, the 
second in as many days in the 
area. It measured 6.2 on the 
Richter scale, and was cen- 
tered about 15 miles north of 
Bishop. It was followed seven 
minutes later by a 53. 
aftershock. 

The quake was felt from Los 
Angeles, 225 -miles south of 
Bishop, to the San Francisco 
Bay area, some 225 miles 
away. Seismologists said it 
caused tali buildings to sway 
in Sail Lake City. Utah, some 
700 miles to the east. 

Twenty homes were dam- 
aged beyond repair in Bishop, 
and the town’s water supply 
was shut oft At Pleasant 
Valley, near Bishop, 50 camp- 
ers were stranded when a 
fissure opened in the earth. A 
parked pickup lorry fell into 
the gap. The Hot Creek bath- 
ing area, was dosed when 
inspectors found additional 
hot water coming through 
fissures. 

Yesterday's quake was on 
the Sierra fault system, the 
same fault system as Sunday’s 
tremor.

Channon hints at Post 
Office privatization 
after profit of £151m

By Sheila Gnnn, Political Staff 


Mr Paul Channon, Secre- 
tary of State for Trade and 
Industry, strongly hinted last 
night at plans to privatize 
parts of the Post Office, which 
the Government has been 
reluctant to commit itself to 
selling. . _ . 

But the go-ahead for its 
division into four services has 
been seen as a prelude to 
privatizing at least parts of it 

In a letter to Sir Ronald 
Dealing, who has been reap- 
pointed chairman of the Post 
Office, Mr Channon welcom- 
ed the setting up of Girobank 
as a public limited company. 

Mr Channon wrote: “I wish 
the (PO) board similarly to 
press ahead with the incorpo- 
ration of the counters business 
as a subsidiary company. 

“I wish the board to consid- 
er the further applicau'on of 
this principle to its other main 
activities.” 

“To ensure the most re* 


The Post Office's prime 
objective must be for maxi- 
mum efficiency “by all practi- 
cal means” he said. This 
would mean cutting staff and 
costs while maintaining the 
quality of its services. 

Mr Channon's unexpected 
letter to Sir Ronald came as 
the Post Office announced a 
record profit of£l 51.5 million 
in the past financial year, 
compared with £144.4 million 
in 1984-85. The corporation 
made a £136.8 million profit

profit of £19.4 million from 
Girobank. 

Mr Channon also told Sir 
Ronald that the Post Office 
should make a profit each year 
in each of its separate busi- 
nesses. Prices should be sensi- 


record 11.2 billion inland 
tetters last year. Mail unit 
costs were reduced in real 
terms by 2.4 per cent and 
mote than 2,000 new jobs 
were created. 

But the corporation has 
proposed a lp rise in first and 
second c&ss mail from Octo- 
ber. It is proposed that the first 
class mail will rise to I8p, and 
second class to 13p. 

The Post Office has said the 
price of stamps may continue 
to rise unless the Government 
relaxes its financial con- ; 
straints, j 

The corporation had to 
repay £7(1 million debt to the 
Government in the last finan- 
cial year, and a further £90 
million this year.

Parliament, page 4 | 


Mr Charles Wilson, editor 
of The Times, strongly denied 
in a High Court statement 
yesterday that plans by Mr 
Rupert Murdoch to produce a 
new London evening newspa- 
per were a “sham” to deceive 
prim unions. 

The affidavit was read by 
Mr Anthony Grabiner QC on 
toe eighth day of News 
International's attempt to 
curb what it says is unlawful 
picketing, marches and dem- 
onstrations outside its new 
plant at Wapping, east Lon- 
don, and other premises 
owned by the company or its 
subsidiaries. 


Mr Grabiner produced a 
“dummy” copy of the newspa- 
per in court as proof of the 
serious intent to launch it on a 
commercial basis. 


Mr Wilson said in his 
affidavit: “I never had any 
doubt that it was the group's 
intention to produce The Post 
1 conceived a newspaper that 1 
thought would be successful 
and it was real to me in every 
sense” 


Mr Wilson, who became 
editorial director of The Post , 
later renamed The London 
Post, outlined the steps taken 
to launch the publication. 

Once toe news of toe new 
newspaper had leaked out, he 
said, there was an avalanche 
-of applications from journal- 
ists from Fleet Street, the 
provinces and abroad. It was 


clear that he could put togeth- 
er a formidable staff 

Mr Justice Stuart-Smito is 
being asked to giant injunc- 
tions banning the print 
unions, Sogat '82 and the 
National Graphical Associa- 
tion, plus a number of named 
officials, from staging any- 
thing but a lawful picket of six 
people at the plant where The 
Times, The Sunday Times, 
The Sun and News of the 
World are produced. 

Mr Bruce Matthews, man- 
aging director of News Inter- 
national, referred in an 
affidavit to the serious intent 
of launching a new evening 
newspaper to compete with 
the Evening Standard. 

But, he said, after toe strike 
by print workers in January of 
this year, it was “obvious that 
distribution of an evening 
newspaper in London would 
be particularly vulnerable to 
disruption or even 
intimidation”. 

He said toe Wapping plant 
was not conceived or built for 
its present purpose. In spite of 
toe measures taken as part of 
contingency plans it was obvi- 
ous to him and his board that 
to add another newspaper at- 
that stage would have exacer- 
bated the problems. 

Consequently, he said, toe 
project for a new London 
evening newspaper had been 
put “on toe back burner". 

Mr John Hendy, represent- .. 
ing Mr ..Michael Hicks, a 
prominent member of Sogat, 


said tha t far from encouraging 
unlawful acts outside toe 
Wapping plant, Mr Hicks had 
consistently appealed. for 
peaceful and dignified 
protests- . . , 

Mr Hendy said he wished to 
emphasize that, other than 
lawfully demonstrating and 
picketing, the print workers 
had no effective means of 
pursuing the dispute. 

There were 5,500 of them 
and just to have six pickets 
was a “worthless right” as 
people going into toe plant did 
not stop. 

It was, said Mr Hendy, a 
matter of importance to print ; 
workers to attend toe picket 
lines and demonstrations out- 
side the Wapping plant in 
order to reach a fair and just 
settlement of toe dispute. Mr 
Hendy said toe pickets were 
kept well away from toe 
entrance to toe plant and he 
invited the judge to visit the 
site to see for himseff Mr 
Justice Stuan-Sirrith indicated 
he did not feel that would be 
necessary.

The first flight of Britain’s 
experimental tighter aircraft 
has been delayed by a mechan- 
ical problem. 

It had been hoped that the 
aircraft would make its first 
flight at the end of May, but 
that became impossible be- 
cause of a strike at the British 
Aerospace plant at Warton, 
near Preston, Lancashire. 

The flight was postponed 
until this week, but last week a 
fruit was discovered in a set of 
hydraulic actuators while the 
aircraft was undergoing 
ground trials. 

British Aeropsace said yes- 
terday that toe flight would be

The Experimental Aircraft 
Programme (EAP) has pro- 
duced a single aircraft de- 
signed to test toe use of highly 
advanced technologies, some 
of which could be incorporat- 
ed in -the multinational 
Eurofighter programme. 

The company emphasized 
that the fruit was relatively 
straightforward, requiring toe 
re-manufacture of some me- 
chanical parts. 

The delay has caused em- 
barrassment because of rivalry 
between the EAP and an 
experimental French aircraft, 
the Raphale, which made its 
first official flight about 
tendays ago. 

Earlier this month, a British 
Aerospace jet trainer; toe 
Hawk 200, which had been 


dangerous wastes in one year. 


ed, was to import 1,000 tonnes 
of contaminated soil from The 
Netherlands which had been 
hawked around Europe in 
search of a suitable tip. , 

Standards at British tips 
vary greatly, with many Welsh 
sites left unsupervised and 
badly fenced. Inspectors called 
for all sites to be surrounded 
by two strands of barbed wire 
and secure gates. 

In their analysis of heating 
oils, they said that one West 
Midlands contractor was sell- 
ing oil containing 21.1 per

treatment unit at Westminster 
Hospital, London, said. 

“The Princess of Wales only 
has to appear in spotted socks 
and millions of women change 
their appearance overnight. 
The Prince has a similar effect 
on doctors. 

“A few vague phrases about

gets very crowded with GPs 
and starts driving all over the 
place blowing its-hom.” 

Dr Brewer wrote in General

probably did not matter much 
because the royals were about 
as likely ter be right as the

The Minnesota method,

Dr Brewer also expressed 
concern about cancer centres 
which offer alternative forms 
of treatment, “another of the 
Prince’s favourites". 

He said they seemed reluc-

in ways that might show 
whether they had any specific

cover-up 

A doctor who helped to 
cover up the murder of his 
brother's wife was ordered to 
be struck off the Medical Re* 
gister in London yesterday. 
Mrs Amarjit Sethi, aged 32, 
was murdered for failing to 
conform to Sikh values, a 
General - Medical Council dis- 
ciplinary committee was told. 

Dr Joginder Sethi had at- 
tended a family conference 
which agreed that the death 
should be made to look as if it 
had happened during a 
burglary. 

But her husband, Trflochan, 
one of Dr Sethi's three broth- 
ers, confessed to strangling 
her. Dr Sethi, aged 35, of 
Cranford, Hounslow, ap- 
peared at the Central Criminal 
Court on February 28. 

He was acquitted of murder 
but found guilty of conspiring 
to obstruct the course of 
justice and jailed for 18 
months. His mother and three 
brothers were sentenced to life 
imprisonment for murder. 


A government microbiolo- 
gist who was dismissed from 
his £27,000-a-year post after a 
I U-turn by Mr Norman 
Fowler, Secretary of Slate for 
Social Services, won a Hi^i 
Court battle against the deci- 
sion yesterday. 

Mr Royce Darnell, aged 56. 
lost his job at the Public 
Health Laboratory Service in 
Derby last February, after 
being suspended by Trent 
Regional Health Authority in 
June 1982 pending an inquiry 
into an internal dispute with 
the principal medical labora- 
tory science officer over an 
appointments procedure. 

Lord Justice Stephen 
Brown, sitting with Mr Justice 
McCowen. said that it was “a 
sad and disturbing case”, and 
that Mr Darnell, of Hillcross 
Drive. LitiJeover, Derby, 
faced professional ruin. 

The court ruled that Mr 
Fowler had acted unfairly in 
confirming the dismissal and 
invited him to reconsider. 


Last October Mr Fowler 
had accepted a recommenda- 
tion from the Professional 
Committee, the DHSS appeal 
body, and directed the health 
authority to offer Mr Darnell a 
similar post, without manage- 
rial responsibilities, in the 
region. But in February Mr 
Fowler reversed his derision 
and confirmed the dismissaL 

The judge said that Mr 
Darnell was never made aware 
of discussions between the 
authority and the DHSS, and 
that there was justification for 
his allegations that Mr Fow- 
ler's change of mind was due 
to pressure from the authority. 

Mr Stephen Grosz, solicitor 
for Mr Darnell, who was 
backed by the Medical Protec- 
tion Society, said that his 
client would get five months" 
lack pay and the authority 
would explore the possibility 
of another job. He said that 
the dispute had cost the health 
service nearly £300,000.

The causes oflung diseases 
in babies and the plight of 
millions of adults suffering 
chronic respiratory condmons 
are to be investigated in a 
research initiative announced 
yesterday. 

The links between the Ac- 
quired Immune Deficiency 
Syndrome (Aids) and compli- 
cations such as pneumonia are 


also to be examined in 
projects funded by the British 
Lung Foundation. 

Research into lung diseases 
receives little funding in Brit- 
ain although about four mil- 
lion people suffer from 
respiratory conditions includ- 
ing chronic bronchitis, em- 
physema, and asthma. 

The foundation has re- 
ceived £200,000 from the 
BOC Group, most of which 
will be awarded to researchers 


in three areas: infant lung- 
conditions, chronic respira- 
tory disability and the pulmo- 
nary complications of Aids. 

-We are inviting research- 
ers to submit proposals for 
exciting, innovative work in 
these areas". Dr Malcolm 
Green, chairman of the foun- 
dation, said. 

The causes of cot deaths, 
which claim the lives of up to 
1.800 babies a year, will be 

investigated.

tion of existing resources bring, 
lists and waiting times down. 

Mr Fowler said the authori- 
ties would start by reviewing 
waiting lists and times for in- 
patient treatment in every 
district. Wailing times for 
outpatient treatment would 
also be reviewed, 

Mr Fowler said health ser- 
vice staff had already done 
much, by changing methods 
and introducing new tech- 
niques “to enable patients to 
be treated as day cases and to 
reduce lengths of stay in 
hospital." 

He praised the health ser- 
vice for its “excellent" record 
in increasing the number of 
patients treated. 

• Government attempts to 
reduce hospital waiting lists 
could not succeed without 
more money being spent on 
the hospital sector, the British 
Medical Association said last 
night (Thomson Prentice 
writes). 

“Such attempts are a hu- 
mane concept, but no serious 
inroad can be made until there 
are additional resources." Dr 
Maurice Burrows, chairman 
of the BMA’s hospital 
consultants' committee, said. 

£300,000 
for drug 
overdose 

A boy aged eight who 
suffered severe brain damage 
after being given the wrong 
medical treatment for a cough 
when he was a baby was 
awarded £300,000 agreed 
damages in the High Court 
yesterday. 

Stephen Hawkey, of Great 
Cambridge Road, Enfield, 
Middlesex, was left a spastic 
quadraplegic after being pre- 1 
scribed the wrong dosage of a 
drug in August 1978, when he 
was aged four-and-a-half 
months. 

He sued Dr M J A Menage, 
of Silver Street, Enfield, 
through his father, Mr John 
Hawkey. 

Mr David Barker, QC, for 
the boy. told Mr Justice Owen 
that it would have been his 
case that the drug. Aminoph- 
yliine, was not suitable for , 
children and, even if that was 
not so, prescribing five times 
the correct dosage had caused 
permanent brain damage. 

He said that die boy would 
be totally dependent for the 
rest of his life; and needed 24- 
bonrs-a-day care. He could not 
walk, stand or sit without 
support 

Mr Justice Owen entered 
judgement for the boy after i 
counsel told him that doctors, 
who did not contest liability, 
had failed to agree on the boy's 
life expectancy. Estimates var- 
ied between five and 25 years.

Computer to cut fingerprint delay 


A fingerprint computer that 
can son through 20.000 prims 
a second and could help to 
identify suspects from previ- 
ously unsolved crimes was 
launched yesterday by a Brit- 
ish company. 

The computer, called Ori- 
on. is the latest in a number of 
fingerprint systems developed 
by the security and priming 
company. De La Rue. whose 
American subsidiary. Printak. 
already services 30 police 
forces throughout the world, 
including the FBI.

Plumber’s 
£7,000 
award lost 

An apprentice plumber who 
lost his job after being sent to 
borstal lost a £7,000 compen- 
sation award in the Court of 
Appeal yesterday. 

An appeal by F. C. Shep- 
herd. of Brixton, south Lon- 
don, against an industrial 
tribunal award, was unani- 
mously upheld. 

Lord Justice Lawton with 
Lord Justice Mustill and Lord 
Justice Balcombe said the 
tribunal found, and it was 
confirmed by the Employ- 
ment Appeal Tribunal, that 
Mark Jerrom, aged 21, of 
Phelp Street, Walworth, south 
east London, had been unfair- 
ly dismissed by ibe company. 

He entered a four-year ap- 
prenticeship in June 1980. But 
during the next year he con- 
spired with others to lake part 
in a “punch up" during which 
a youth was killed. 

In June 198 1. he was acquit- 
ted of manslaughter but found 
guilty of conspiracy to assault 
and affray, 

The employers were asked if 
he would be allowed to contin- 
ue his training and they said 
they would like to terminate 
the agreement. 

When Jerrom was released 
in January 1982 the company 
refused to allow him to contin- 
ue his apprenticeship. He 
claimed unfair dismissaL But 
the company denied they had 
dismissed him. They said he 
had frustrated the contract by 
the borstal sentence. . 

This was rejected by the 
industrial tribunal but accept- 
ed by the Court of Appeal. 

Leave to appeal to the 
House of Lords was refused.

Injury award 

Mr Philip Bohling, aged 23, 
of Pyrford, Surrey, whose 
hopes of becomings chartered 
accountant were foiled when 
he suffered brain damage after 
a road accident in 1981, was 
awarded £133,464 damages 
for his injuries in the High 
Court yesterday. 


By Nicholas Bees ton 
senior police officers from 
Britain and Europe are expect- 
ed to test the system, which 
can improve the quality of 
poor fingerprints and convert 
existing prims on cards into 
computer files at the rate of 
300 an hour. 

The computer costs be- 
tween £1 million and £15 mil- 
lion. depending on specifi- 
cations. The Home Office said 
yesterday that it was consider- 
ing Orion, along with 10 other 
contenders, to improve its 
fingerprint system. 

Scotland Yard has a semi- 


automated system with 50.000 
fingerprints recorded, but the 
bulk of the w ork is still done 
manually. The Home Office is 
expected to complete a report 
by the autumn on police 
fingerprint needs. 

“If the system was used in 
Britain it would almost cer- 
tainly solve a number of cases 
where fingerprints wen? taken 
at the scene of the crime, but 
which have never been pro- 
cessed thoroughly because of 
the laborious procedure of 
checking each print by hand," 
the company said.

Health experts believe they 
have found the virus that left; 1 
more than 600 people BI on the 
past five anises of the P & O 
liner, Canberra, They say it 
probably caused the outbreaks 
of vomiting and diarrhoea 
among passengers and crew. 

The little-known virus, 
called Norwalk, is usually 
transmitted through water, 
food or by person to person 
•contact under unhygienic con- 
ditions and causes gastroen- 
teritis disorders when it enters 
the body. 

Dr David Harper, of Winton 
Applied Occupational Hy- 
giene, said tests on passen- 
gers, who were affected on 
previous cruises, have isolated 
the virus which affected 171 
people on the Canberra's re- 
cent 13-night Mediterranean 
cruise. But farther investiga- 
tions will be carried out to see 
if any other virus was involved. 

“We think the virus was 
carried on to the ship in the 
water supply and has nothing 
to do with die conditions of 
storage. To flush out the germ 
we have added four times the 
norma) measure of chlorine 
into Che system and this 
should kin the virus," he said. 

The Canberra arrived in 
Southampton at 7 am yester- 
day facing criticism from local 
health officials that the ship 
should not have set sail after a 
health inspection had dis- 
closed some “appalling" con- 
ditions of hygiene in food and 
water storage. 

Bat Captain Ian Gibb said 
yesterday be had no doubt that 
lives had not been put at risk 
during the voyage. 

“If the port health authori- 
ties had told us not to sail, then 
1 am sure the owners would not 
have allowed the ship to leave 
port," he said. 

One of the passengers, Mr 
Vincent McKeefery, a compa- 
ny director from Leicester, 
said be was angry that P&O 
had not informed him about 
the virus striking on previous 
cruises when he purchased his 
: tickets. 

The Canberra was due to set 
sail last night for a two-week 
trip around the Mediterra- 
nean. 

Tickets holders were all sent 
letters from P&O manage- 
ment saying there was “a 
slight possibility" that they 
could be affected by the 24- 
hour virus. But so far only 30 
people have cancelled their 
reservations.

Plans by the Automobile 
Association to arrange cut-, 
price car deals for its six 
million members have alarm- 
ed sections of the motor trade 
and are being closely moni- 
tored by the manufacturers. 

The AA has asked 260,000 
members to take part in a free 
d ree-month pilot scheme 
with an established company 
called Comp-U-Card, before 
making a final decision. 

For an extra £25 a year 
members will be able to 
telephone a “central clearing 
house" for details of cars, 
prices and delivery dates. 

Last night an AA spokes- 
man said: “We are not selling 
cars and we are not going into 
competition with the motor 
trade. We are setting up a link 
between prospective buyers 
and around 100 dealers who 
have agreed to take part." 

But a number of car manu- 
facturers and dealers contact- 
ed by The Times last night 
expressed alarm. 

The managing director of 
the British subsidiary of one of 
Europe's largest car makers 
said: “We could end up with a 
massive auction in which a 
large number of dealers would 
compete with each other to 
offer the cheapest new car." 

The Motor Agents’ Associa- 
tion, which represents most of 
Britain's garages, has already 
sought assurances from the 
AA that the scheme is not an 
attempt to destroy ihe estab- 
j lished dealer franchise system.

to ‘tick list 9 abuses 


SOCIAL SECURITY 

feCTrtaiy of State(5SfN 


Labour MPS reacted angrily toa 
Commons announcement by 
Mr Anthony Newton, Minister 
for Social Security, of measures 
to curb abuses of single pay- 
ments under the social security 
svstera of supplementary bene- 
fits. These cover such things as 
furniture, cookers, bedding and 
other miscellaneous household 


items. 

Regulations incorporating 
changes in the system have been 
laid before Parliament with a 
view to bringing them into effect 


on August 11. 'They are to be 
debated bv MPs on We 


I by MPs on Wednesday. 
Announcing the 

Government's decision to pro- 
ceed with new regulations, Mr 
Newton referred to the contin- 


ued escalation of single pay- 
lonths. The 


ments in recent mon 
most recent figures, for the four 
weeks to June 3, were equivalent 
to an annual rate of five and a 
half million payments and ai 
least £400 million. 

Amid Labour cheers, he said 
many local authorities and other 
bodies were mounting cam- 
paigns to stimulate further 
claims, for example by circulat- 
ing leaflets containing extensive 
“tick lists" of items under such 
slogans as “Closing Down Sale". 
(A Labour shout of “What is 
wrong with that?”) 

After Mr Michael Meacher, 
chief Opposition spokesman on 
social services and MP for 
Oldham West, had complained, 
that the proposals. were taking 
the country back to the restric- 
tive and inadequate finance of 
poor law support which- Labour 
rejected, Mr ' Newton said ' the 
Oldham social services depart- 
ment had distributed a claim 
form under the heading "Claim 
it while you can." 

One local DHSS office in 
Sheffield serving 21,000 claim- 
ants received recently 4.000 
claims for bedding within a few 
weeks and 2,500 claims for 
furniture within four days. This 
was dogging the system and 
detrimental to the interests of 
other claimants, ft needed to be 
brought in check. 

Mr Newton said in view of the 
glowing terms in which Mr 
Meacher had referred to the 
take-up campaigns of local 
authorities, he would bring to 
the attention of the House the 
tick list submitted by a claimant 
in Strathclyde region listing 
literally dozens of items for 
which a claim was being made. 

This started with four single 
beds, bedding for the whole 
family, three fires, seven fire- 
guards. four hoi water bottles. - 

He also had the letter which 
the claimant wrote a few days 
later stating that the social 
worker visiting him had told

before Parliament that day to- 
with the response of the 
of State (Mr Norman 
Fowler},' made plain that the 
committee did not endorse the 
proposals as a whole but never- 
theless suggested a number of 
Specific modifications. 

The Government therefore 
proposed to proceed with new 
regulations but with a number 
of important modifications to 
meet detailed suggestions which 
the committee bad made. 

These indude (he said) fur- 
ther steps to protect the position 
of refugees, women who have 
been subject to domestic vi- 
olence, and young people leav- 
ing local authority care; a 
lengthening of the qualifying 
period for maternity payments; 
the extension of lump sum 
payments for miscellaneous 
items to childless claimants 
setting up home; and, perhaps 
most important, a doubling of 
that lump sum from £25 to £50 
for each dependant 
Mr Meacher, questioning the 
minister on his statement, said 
that an indication of the ex- 
treme and justified embarrass- 
ment of the Government was 
that it had put off the regula- 
tions until after the Newcastle- 
under-Lyme by-election. 

This was one of the harshest 
measures of their years in office. 
They were now trying to rush it 
through in the last week before 
the recess and were proposing to 
have it debated on Wednesday, 
die day of the Royal Wedding, 
in order to minimize pubbe 
awareness of it. 

It is characteristic of this 
Government (he said) that they -

single payment and there was an 
unanswerable case for the new 
system. 

Mr Newton: I entirely agree. 

Mr Max Madden (Bradford 
West, Lab) asked how the 
minister had the brass neck to 
make -this statement Warning 
the poor fix' claiming what was 
their right. 

How many Treasury min- 
isters had attacked sleazy 
accountants for running semi- 
nars advising people bow to 
save money from tax avoidance 
daimS? 

Why did he attack those who 
were quite properly advising the 
poor on their rights and on how 
to claim them? 

This was robbing the poor of 
£100 million at a tune when the 
Government bad given million 
upon million to the richest 
people in the country. 

Mr Newton said the system was 
manifestly lending itself to 
manipulation and exploitation 
. on a scale that Parliament never 
intended. 

I do not believe (he said) that 
any Government would con- 
tinue to five with this situation. 
Mr Kevin Barron (Rothcr Val- 
ley, Lab) asked why there was no 
appeals procedure for the social 
fund so that people could appeal 
against any decision taken. 

Mr Newton said that would be 
for discussion, quite possibly 
later in the week. 

Mr Timothy Smith (Beacons- 
field ,Q asked what checks were 
carried out after claims were 
made. 

Mr Newton said staff attempted 
to carry out checks. With the 
growing exploitation of the sys- 
tem, it was_ becoming increas- 
ingly difficult to administer 
property. 

Mr Janes Lamond (Oldham 
Central and Royton, Lab) asked 
why he had not dealt with the 
issue property by seeing that 
there were sufficient staff avaiL 
able, as had been pointed out 
time and time again by trade 
unions. 

Mr Newton said the Govern- 
ment was putting a substantial 
number of additional stafT into 
the social security system, some 
5,000 in all compared with what 
had been planned, because of 
the pressures on the system. 



Brandon-Brave: Unanswerable 
case for new system 


North, Lab) said the Govern- 
ment should improve DHSS 
advice services instead- of 
attacking local authorities and 
claimants' organizations to pay 
for lax cuts and the Royal 
Wedding. (Conservative 
protests) 

Mr Newton said the Govern- 
ment had improved advice ser- 
vices. Everyone would 
recognize the value of the 
department's Freefone service, 
now operating throughout the 
country. 

Mr Donald Dixon (Janow, Lab) 
said the vast majority of people 
in his area who would be 
affected by these cutbacks were 
industrial refugees who had 
been made so by the 
Government's economic and 
social policies. 

Did Mr Newton realize the 
sort of inquisition that people 
had to go through to get their 
single payments? 

Mr Newton said it was right that 
local officers and staff should 
check to ensure that claims were 
genuine. 

Mr James Oaigen (Glasgow, 
MarybiU. Lab) said the upsurge 
in single payments was a. reflec- 
tion of the effects of Govern- 
ment social and economic 
policies^ . r J. 

Mr Newton reiterated that some 
social workers were manipulat- 
ing claims for people. Then it 
emerged within hours that the 
claimants themselves did not 
perceive that they had such 
extensive needs. 

Mr Peter Pike (Burnley, Lab) 
said that the regulations as they 
stood meant many thousands of 
people did not gel their single 
payments. 

This statement was an appall- 
ing attack on the poorest and 
most deprived sections of the 
community.

In his statement on single 
payments of 1 supplementary 
benefit. Mr Newton said that by- 
1985 the number of payments 
had risen to more than four 
million at a cost of over £300 
million. The growth showed no 
sign of diminishing. The 
Government's firm conclusion 
in the recent social security 
review was that the present 
system of single payments could 
be neither justified nor 
sustained. 

Although only 5 per cent of 
supplementary benefit expen- 
diture went into single pay- 
ments. it accounted for nearly 
50 per cent of ail supplementary 
benefit decisions and more than 
50 per cent of appeal hearings. 
More fundamental Ity, it was 
clearly not achieving what Par- 
liament intended, with wide 
discrepancies from one area to 
another. 

There is (he said) unaccept- 
able scope for exploitation and 
abuse, yet at the same time 
insufficient flexibility to meet 
the real needs or genuine 
claimants. 

In February the Government 
had pul to the Social Security 
Advisory Committee for 
consultation draft regulations ; 
making a number of changes' 
within the existing structure. 
The committee’s report laid 


festivities to hammer the poor 
with extra rales payments of 
£300 million and cuts in single 
payments which, on the 
minister's figures, amount to 
£180 million. 

Supplementary benefit levels 
are insufficient and were never 
intended to pay for major items 
of furniture, bedding, blankets, 
copkers. and refrigerator s and 
clothing, The effect must be to 
push many homeless families 
more deeply into poverty. 

His criticism of local take-up 


concern about the problem of 
under-claiming which exists. 

Provision for repair or 
replacement of items without 
assistanc e o r reco m pen s e - wou ld- 
chiefly hit low-paid parents or 
the unemployed. The limiting of 
back payments would have 
damaging effects on people 
including pensioners and other 
vulnerable claimants. 

The changes would cause 
intense and widespread hard- 
ship and was perhaps the 
Government's harshest mea- 
sure. taking it back to the 
restrictive and inadequately fi- 
nanced system of the Poor Law, 
which they rejected. 

Mr Newton: I accept little of 
that. We expect (he amount to 
be saved by comparison with 
expenditure in 1985-86 to be 
about £100 million. 

There has been difficulty in 
making firm estimates because 
of the rapid escalation of expen- 
diture. 1 do not accept his 
suggestion about the creation of 
intense and widespread 
hardship. 

As the social security commit- 
tee itself acknowledged, there 
has been a deliberate and careful 
attempt to protect those on 
priority claims and to make sure 
that they can continue to get 

help. 

Mr Martin ‘ Brandoo-Brato 
(Nottingham. South, C) said 
that there bad been abuse of the 


payments between 1979 
now was unacceptable. 

There was considerable ev- 
idence that claims had not fallen 
within the general purpose of 

the regulations. 

Mr Newton said that was right 
That was one reason he was 
concerned that the interests of 
people who did have genuine 
needs were in danger of being 
swamped. 

Mr Hegh Brown (Glasgow, 
Provan, Lab) suggested that the 
Government should seek 
constructive -talks, with local 
authority representatives over 
abuses, while looking at the 
take-up camjraigfcs. 

'Many regional directors did 
not have the political know-how 
to deal with such situations.^ 
Mr Newton . said the Govern- 
ment did talk with local authori- 
ties to see that such campaigns 
were conducted in a responsible 
and well-iaigetied way. 

Some local authorities were 
easier to talk with than others.

the money saved to the rich. 

Conservative backbenchers

serious offences reported as 
having been committed in Brit-

increase on 1978, the last full 
year before this Government 
came to office.

had risen by 30 per cent, 
violence against the person by 
42 per cent, burglaries by 52 per 
cent, crirranal damage by 73 per

Britain in which one crime of

and one serious crime every

The crime -rate was not oirfy 
high but was gening higher. 

When this Government came to 
office 330 serious crimes were 
committed every hour, now ft 
was 465. 

This was the crime position 
up to December 1985. For 
England and Wales the figures 
for the first quarter of this year 
showed yet another sharp rise 
with total 'crime up 7 per cent, 
violence against the person up 5 
per cent, theft up 5 per cent, 
burglary up 8 per cent, and 
criminal damage up 14 per cent 

Crime and fear of crime took 
something away from the in- 
dividual and from society as a 
whole. The police did their best 
but far too often the police 
themselves knew it was nowhere 
near good enough. Clear- up 
rates for many crimes were low 
and had fallen.

The Government bad no pro-

drinking and driving. Lord 
Cleuarthur, Under Secretary of

House of Lords during question 
time. 

He bad been asked by the 
Marquess of Aflesbury (Ind) 
what action it .was proposed to 
lake to reduce the number of 
innocent 'motorists — 16,000 — 
arrested annually on suspicion 
of being drunk. 

Lord Gfenarthar said the police 
had powers to enforce the law 
and the use made of the powers 
was matter for chief officers 


The Government and the 
police were conscious of the 
need to minimize the number of 
people arrested who were sub- 
sequently found to be below the 
alcohol limit. 


It is vitaLgiven the number of

would launch a major campaign 
aimed at preventing crimes and 
making neighbourhoods safer, 
helping everyone in city, town 
and rural areas, tenants as well 
as owner-occupiers. 

Some council estates had 
suffered especially high crime 
rates and emphasis would be 
placed on these. There was a 
crucial link between reducing 
crime and increasing invest- 
ment in public sector housing. 

There would be more residen- 
tial caretakers for tower blocks 
ami estates. They would be prop- 
erty trained and supported with 
physical security measures and 
responsive repair services, to- 
gether with effective 
neighbourhood policing in ac- 
cordance with the wishes of the 
local community. 

There would be a safe estates 
programme with an increased 
allocation for housing expen- 
diture made available to local 
authorities to encourage them to 
put' in more caretakers, 
strengthen front doors and 
frames and fit new locks on 
windows. That would cost less 
than the £10,000 million which 
crime cost the country each 
year.

he said. 

This was being done 
through a large programme of 
_ station re-fiir hishm ent on the 
Underground, and fleets of 
new buses and Underground 
trains. 

Mr Bright said the improver 
'ments had been made in' the 
face of cuts of £97 million in 
government funding. 

Last year’s results were 
helped- by an increase in 
tourist traffic, large sales of 
travelcards (150,000 up at 
950,000), and the introduction 

of. competitive bus services 

The attached table com- 
pany the 12 months to April 
1986 with the 15 months to 
April 1985. ' 

; Underground trains- were 
increased by 1 per cent lak 
year to 29. 7 million miles, and 


reliability achieved was 97.9 
per cent of services scheduled 
compared with 97.8 per cent 
the previous year. 

On the buses, there was a 
deterioration from 94.3 per 
cent of scheduled services in 
1984-85 to 93.7 per cent last, 
year. And while punctuality 
on the Underground re- 
mained practically unchanged 
with an average wait of 3.35 
minutes, bus punctuality dete- 
riorated from 7:05 to 7.28- 
minutes average waiL - 

Outside peak hours there 
was a 26.8 per cent chance of 
waiting more than 10 minutes 
for a bus on busy routes, 
compared with -25.* per bent 
the previous year. On routes 
that were not so busy, there 
was a 37 per cent- chance that 
the bus would be more than 
five minutes late, compared 
with 36 percent a year earlier.

Putting 
women on 
right rails 

By Mark Dowd 
Young girls should be given 1 
more toy trains and meccano 
sets to stimulate an interest in 
engineering, according to Mr 
David Martin, editor of Tun- 
nels and Tunnelling. 

In the current edition of the 
monthly magazine, he says 
that the engineering profes- 
sion has a poor image com- 
pared with law and medicine. ; 
The relatively poor salaries 
also deterred the most talent- i 
ed women. 

“Th/s is a very great pity as , 
their ability and skill is sorely 
needed," be says. “While the , 
position is slowly improving, j 
it is not improving fast enough 
in a society that depends for 
its high standard of living 
more on the skill of engineers 
than'almost anyone else.” 

Unless more- women -spe- 
cialized .in .mathematics and 
physics at sichdol and choose 
engineering at university, it 
was not the fault of employers 
if there were not enough 
women responding to adver- 
tisements for enpneers. 

“Women are accepted as 
equals in most other profes- 
sions — teaching, medicine, 
the law, journalism and TY, 
so why not in the tunnelling 
industry T he asks. 

Engineering staff at Leeds 
University are convening a 
special -Women in 
Engineering” conference at 
the end of September for 250 
fifth and sixth form students.

Home sale 
boom 
continues 

By Christopher Wannan 

Property Correspondent 

More houses were sold dur- 
ing the past three months than 
in any comparable period 
since November 1982. The 
Royal Institution of Chartered 
Surveyors says its bousing 
survey of the quarter ending 
on June 30 shows one of the 
busiest markets for years is 
continuing its momentum. 
But many of the 222 estate 
agents surveyed reported that 
the balance between supply 
and demand had evened and 
that the frantic pace of the past 
few months began to die down 
in the second half of June as 
the summer holidays ap- 
proached 

House price increases fol- j 
lowed the pattern of the pre- 
vious quarter, with more than 
half the agents reporting an 
increase of 2 per cent, one 
quarter reporting rises of 5 per 
cent and 5 per cent noting 
rises of 8 percent. . 

Mr John Thomas, the 
institution's housing market 
spokesman, said: “Influences 
such-as the drop in oil revenue 
and the value of the pound 
may soon be felt, along with 
the usual uncertainty brought 
on by a possible 1 987 election. 

“Nevertheless the housing 
market is showing.remarkabte 
resilience and chartered sur- 
veyor estate agents predict 
continuing healthy activity.”

His reign of' terror ended) 
with his arrest in July last 
year. Noble walked into an 
estate agent’s office in 
Woking, Surrey, claimed to be 
“Dr Oarit** and said he want- 
ed to buy a house to use as a 
home and surgery. An assis- 
tant at the office, Mrs Mau- 
reen Bash ford, became 
suspicious. Police were alerted 
and Noble was captured. 

By the time of his arrest he 
was wanted for questioning by 
detectives from six county 
forces as well as officers from 
Scotland Yard. 

Detectives believe his “ca- 
reer total” of victims numbers 
200 over the yeare. 

Noble's career in crime 
began at the age of 1 1, and in 
1978 he was dubbed “Dr 
Death” when jailed for 10 
years for drugging and robbing 
old women. 

He failed to return to a 
Sussex prison from weekend 
leave last summer and once 
again went .on a crime spree, 
poring as a specialist in treat- 
ing arthritis and rheumatism. 

He pleaded guilty to 16 
offences of administering dan- 
gerous drugs, theft, forgery 
and false pretences. 

Mr David Cocks, QC, far 
the prosecution, said Noble 
drugged five women aged 
between 58 and 84 and a man 
of 85. He took cash and 
cheque-books.

Airline 
shift to 
Gatwick 
refused 

By David Sapsted 

A scheme to force regional 
airlines to shift move from. 
Heathrow to Gatwick to ease . 
congestion has been rejected ■ 
by the Government Instead, '■ 
an independent study is to be : „ 
held to see whether efficiency - 
improvements can boost the 
capacity of London’s two', 
main airports. 

Mr Michael S}ncef, the ■ 
minister ibr aviation, gave *' 
warning there could be limits :• 
imposed on new scheduled ^ 
services and charter flights if 
the overcrowding readied ai- ■ ' 
sis point But he emphasized 
that no such restrictions were ' 
envisaged in the immediate ;: 
future. 

Mr Spicer explained yester- . . 
day that the Government had ' ; 
rejected the Civil Aviation : 
Authority recommendation to * * 
force the regional services to ' 
move, on political and social 
grounds. The authority, wot- ' ' 
ried that Heathrow is ap- . 
preaching saturation point,' 
bad considered the problem 
only in aviation terms, the. 
minister said. 

The services threatened r 
with the move — from Jersey, 
Guernsey, Plymouth- : 
Newquay, Inverness, Dundee- 
Carlisle and the Isle of Man — 
were vital to the business and . 
industrial prospects of the • : 
regions.

The attack occurred a week 
“Jer an Eta car bomb in 
Madrid killed 10 members of 
the paramilitary Civil Guard. 

That fatal blast came on the 
eve of the first gathering of the 
newly-elected Spanish Parlia- 
ment, with the formation of 
committees. The latest inci- 
dent came on the eve of the 
formal inaugural session of 
the Parliament, at which Se- 
flor Felipe Gonzdiez, leader of 
the Socialist Party, is expected 
to. be reaffirmed as Prime 
Minister. 

About 700 pro-Eta rioters in 
San Sebastian burned a Span- 
ish Army Jeep and three 
vehicles/ with French licence 
plates oh Sunday night. They 
also threw petrol bombs at the 
regional army headquarters, 
in protest at the increasing 


tank rocket grenades were 
fired at the principal facade of 
the building. One of the 
rounds fell shod. Another 
exploded in a temporarily 
vacant sixth-floor office, just 
above an office occupied by 
Sen or Narcts Serra, the Minis- 
ter of Defence. Others dam- 


aged seventh and eighth-floor 
offices. Vice-Admiral Carlos 
Vila Miranda, the Defence 
Ministry's chief of education, 
was slightly injured. 

Police discovered the car 
from which the projectiles had 
been launched, but shortly 
afterwards it exploded. Three 
policemen, a doorman, three 
passengers on a passing city 
bus, and a bystander were 
hurt. 

Another explosion 15 min- 
utes later, thought to be the 
charge of one of the rockets 
which had not been fired.

had cleared the area. 

Subsequent lip-offs * at 
least one of them apparently

other parked cars on other 
principal streets nearby, con- 
tributed loa major traffic jam. 
Police were said to have de- 
activated a bomb in a car on 
Calle Serrano. They blocked 
the Avenida de la Castellana

reopened only the central 
lanes until late in the 
afternoon. 

The most seriously iqjurcd 
was the doorman. Four others 
were released from hospital

vealed that the rockets were 
fired from tubes mounted for 
the purpose on a roof-rack on 
a car. They were hidden by a 
canvas cover. Police believe 
they were fired by remote 
control after having been 
aimed at the upper floors of 
the ministry. The car bomb 
was also remotely activated. 

The method used in the 
attack on the ministry was 
similar to an unsuccessful 
attack carried out by Eta here 
last May. when three rockets 
were fired by remote control 
from a parked car at the 
passing automobile of Senor 
Antonio Hernandez Gil. presi- 
dent of the Superior Council 
of Judicial Authorities. 

One of those rockets lodged 
unexpioded in the boot of 
Senor Hernandez Gil's car 
and the other two missed. 


French agents deal 
thrown into chaos 

From Richard Long, Wellington 


New Zealand's deal with 
France over the release of the 
two French agents jailed for 
their part in the Rainbow 
Warrior sabotage was thrown 
into confusion yesterday after 
Mr Colin Amery, an Auckland 
lawyer and seif-described psy- 
chic, started a private prosecu- 
tion of them. 

The Registrar of the Auck- 
land District Court, Mr Alan 
McGuflbg. accepted a sum- 
mons for the two agents to 
appear in court on September 
12, even though — under the 
terms of the Rainbow Warrior 
arbitration with France — they 
were to leave New Zealand by 
the end of this week. 

Under the ruling by the 
United Nations Secretary- 
General, Senor Javier Perez de 
Cuellar, the agents were to be 
released into French custody 
on the atoll of Hao in ex- 
change for an apology from 
France, compensation of £4.3 
million and an end to trade 
sactions. 

It was widely believed in 
Wellington that the agents 
would be flown from New 
Zealand by the Air Force 
tomorrow to a Pacific island 
transfer location. 

Bui the Prime Minister. Mr 
David Lange, said the agents 
would not be released if the 
courts could not resolve the 
upset by Friday. 

•it is up. to the Solicitor- 
General. it is up to the courts. 


I am certainly not going to 
give any political direction," 
he said. 

“The point is whether the 
judicial and legal system re- 
solves it by Friday, and if they 
can't, then of course the agents 
will not go by Friday.” Mr 
Lange said the French would 
be told of the upset, but he did 
not believe the court action 
sabotaged the arbitration. 

“International legal ar- 
rangements are not damned 
by an act which it is impossi- 
ble for a government to lake," 
he said. 

He was sceptical about the 
chances of the court action 
proceeding, (minting out that 
the agents — Dominique 
Prieur and Alain Mafart — had 
been jailed for 10 years for 
manslaughter. Irwas a basic 
rule oflaw that they could not 
be tried again on the same 
facts, he said. . ... 

Mr Amery has charged the 
agents with delivering explo- 
sives toiwo fellow-agents with 
reckless disregard for the crew 
of the Rainbow Warrior. 

Police are expected to visit 
Prieur and Mafart in their 
cells in the next few days, 
ordering them to appear in 
court for a pre-trial hearing on 
the charge on September 1 2. 

Mr Gerard Cuny, the law- 
yer representing Prieur and 
Mafart. said that he did not 
expect his diems’ departure to 
be delayed.

Crisis is 
looming 
on islands 

By Rodney Cowton 

A crisis in Britain's relations 
with a liny dependency in the 
Caribbean could flare up this 
week when the Foreign and 
Commonwealth Office an- 
nounces what action it is to 
take as the result of an inquiry 
into evidence of arson and 
corruption in the Turks and 
Caicos Islands, 

As usual. Britain has a 
frigate, the Ariadne, on patrol 
in the Caribbean, and British 
troops appear to have been 
placed on a high state of alert 
in case they are needed. 

The spearhead battalion, 
which is kepi on stand-by for 
emergencies, is the 2nd Battal- 
ion, the Parachute Regiment, 
though it is shortly due to be 
relieved by the 3rd Battalion, 
the Royal Regiment of 
Fusiliers. 

The inquiry, which was 
conducted by Mr Louis Blom- 
Cooper QC. was set up by the 
Foreign Office "in the inter- 
ests of good government", and 
there are fears in the islands 
that the British Government 
may order a dissolution of the 
islands' government. 

Mr Nathaniel Francis, Chief 
Minister since March 1985, 
has been reported as saying he 
would not accept a dissolution 
ordered by the British Gover- 
nor, Mr Christopher Turner, 
though yesterday he said that, 
after consultation with his 
ministers, it had been agreed 
he would make no comment. 

The Foreign and Common- 
wealth Office refused to say 
what action it was planning in 
the light of Mr Blom-Cooper’s 
report, which was received on 
July 4. A statement is expected 
to be made in Parliament 
within the next few days. 
Suggestions that Britain might 
take over direct rule of the 
islands were being discounted 
in London. 

The inquiry was set up after 
local investigations into the 
causes of a fire, which gutted a 
government building Iasi New 
Year’s Eve on Grand Turk , 
revealed evidence not only of 
arson but also of a possible 
conspiracy to commit that and 
other offences. 

In 1985 Mr Norman 
Saunders, the former Chief 
Minister, was jailed in Florida 
for his part in a drug smug- 
gling plot. 

The islands have a popula- 
tion of about 8,000 and de- 
pend heavily on tourism, 
offshore finance and fishing. 


Berlin spy 
charges 
dropped 

From Our Correspondent 
Bonn 

West Germany yesterday 
ended an inter-German row 
by dropping an espionage 
charge against an Easi Ger- 
man accused of being a dou- 
ble-defector and spy. 

A few hours later Professor 
Herbert Meissner, aged 59. 
was on his way home after 
spending about a week in 
hiding in the East German 
diplomatic mission in Bonn. 

The East Germans claimed 
that Herr Meissner, an econo- 
mist and deputy general secre- 
tary of the East German Acad- 
emy of Scientists, had found 
.refuge in the mission after 
escaping from West German 
intelligence, men who. had 
kidnapped him. The West 
Germanssaid he had defected, 
but disappeared- after three 
days of questioning. . 

The row embarrassed Bonn 
as it feared East-West German 
relations would be harmed if a 
“speedy and practical” solu- 
tion was not found. 

Bonn's hopes for this rose 
last weekend when Herr Wolf- 

S ing Vogel, the veteran East 
erman spy-swap lawyer, be- 
gan talks in the West German 
capital with Herr Ludwig 
Rchlingcr, the government 
representative. 

The conflict was solved 
early yesterday when Dr Kurt 
Rebmann, the West German 
public prosecutor, announced 
that he had stopped an investi- 
gation of Herr Meissner on 
suspicion of spying.

chief jailed

Sout h Africa embarrassment for Reagan 

Black envoy plan collapses 


From Christopher Thomas, Washington 


President Reagan's plan to 
nominate a black business- 
man as ambassador to Pre- 
toria collapsed yesterday, 
causing great embarrassment 
to the White House and 
forcing hurried changes in Mr 
Reagan's policy speech on 
South Africa today. 

Mr Robert Brown, who 
owns a public relations firm in 
North Carolina, said he had 
asked the White House to 
withdraw his name from con- 
sideration to avoid further 
painful publicity for himself 
and his family. 

“It has been hectic and very 
painful. I am not used to the 
limelight as such,” he told a 
press conference. “I have 
avoided publicity all my life. I 
didn't seek this and I won't be 
seeking any publicity in the 
future." 

He had been strongly criti- 


cized by labour leaders be- 
cause his company, B & C 
Associates, allegedly engaged 
in union-busting activities in 
North Carolina. 

There has also been concern 
about bis friendship with Mr 
Umaro Dikko. a former Nige- 
rian official who fled after a 
coup at the end of 1983. Mr 
Dikko has denied allegations 
by the Nigerian Government 
that he took several million 
dollars. 

Questions about the ethics 
surrounding a SS60.000 
(£573.000) government con- 
tract, received by a partner- 
ship in which Mr Brown was 
involved, added to doubts 
whether President Reagan 
would stand by his choice. 

The White House said it 
regretted Mr Brown's with- 
drawal. fn truth, it was dearly

It said a search for another 
candidate would continue "on 
ihe basis of the best qualified 
person for the job". But there 
seems little doubt that the 
White House still hopes to 
find a suitable black for the 
post, in the hope that it will 
ease some of the pressure for a 
more resolute stand against 
the Government in Pretoria. 

Mr Reagan's speech this 
afternoon - which was to 
have contained the announce- 
ment of the plan to send Mr 
Brown to Pretoria — may hold 
out the eventual prospect of 
some further action against 
South Africa if there is not 
clear evidence of a willingness 
to end apartheid.

refusal to impose punitive

sanctions. 

Lange doubts 
boycott will

From Our Correspondent 
Wellington 

Mr David Lange, the New 
Zealand Prime Minister, yes- 
.terday . warned . nations boy- 
cotting the Commonwealth 
Games that their actions 
would make Mrs Thatcher 
even more obdurate. 

Mr Lange said he could 
understand the passionate in- 
tensity of nations which had 
withdrawn from the Games, 
but added: "The one sure way 
to make Mrs Thatcher carry 
on in the ‘current coarse is to be 
as strident and obstructive of 
her as possible, f think she is 
actually fortified by that in her 
determination." 

Mr Lange said the boycott 
would "entrench Mrs Thatch- 
er in her determination. Can 
she now be seen to capitulate 
to this? The answer would be 
inconsistent with every' politi- 
cal statement and position she 
has ever taken."

Guru’s disciples rise to the occasion 


From Michael Hamlyn 
Delhi 

Disciples of his holiness 
Mahans hi Mahesh Yogi held 
the first international yogk 
flying competition in Delhi 
last night, climax of national 
competitions involving terit- 
ators from 38 countries. 

The maharishi is best 
known for haring popularized 
the technique known as Tran- 
scendental Meditation, and 
perhaps best remembered 
from the days of flower power 
and hippiedom when be was 


Yogic flying according to 
the maharishPs disciples, an 
example of tbe kW of 
meditations! concentration 
th at will bring aboat world 
peace. But his disoptes today 
are a far cry fram {be P? 
days. They are cool and effi- 
citsti in lightwetght teing 
sails and close hamate, 
grees in bnsiness adnuwsfra- 
tion, and an intense look m 
their eye$* 


The actual business of fly- 
ing looked a lot like children's 
rabbit races, as otherwise 
sensible-looking young men 
with their legs locked in tire 
lotus position bounded with 
their eyes tightly dosed along 
trades laid out on foam-rubber 
mattresses. The gait was 
something tike that used by 
the legless beggars in the 1 
Connanght Circus visited by 
tourists near by. Women com- 
petitors also flew, b ut the y 
were behind a massive curtain 
and only to he seen by female 
eyes. 

Of course, the demonstm* 
tion was not fully-fledged fly- 
ing. This was merely “bopp- 
ing”, stage one of a three-stage 
development Ihe competitors 
spent five minutes in silent 
meditation in the lotus posi- 
tion before — as it was 
explained by Dr Bevan Morris 
— the coherence of their brain 
waves became such that their 
bodies began hopping all by 
themselves. 

“It is without intention and 


without physical effort,” said 
Dr Morris, who is the presi- 
dent of the maharishTs own 
university in Fairfield, Iowa. 

Stage two of yogic flying 
conies when the bodies do not 
merely bop, but rise and hover 
a few inches above tbe ground. 
Directional flight comes in 
stage three. Unfortunately, 
yesterday's demonstration at 
the massive Indira Gandhi 
Stadium in Delhi indoded 
neither stage two nor three. 

And what has all this to do 
with world peace? According 
to a succession of neatiy- 
groomed young men with im- 
pressive degrees in physics 
and medicine, many from uni- 
. ersities other than Fairfield, 
Iowa, the coherence in the 
brains of the transcendental 
meditators en a bli n g the indi- 
vidual to fly is sufficient in the 
mass to change the world. 

"War is caused,” Ifr Morris 
told ns, “by a build-up of 
stress in the collective con- 
sciousness of the world. The 
stress boflds up until it ex- 


plodes amt a catastrophe 
occurs.” 

Bat the zuabansni has dis- 
covered that his new technol- 
ogy ran create a unified field 
between people as well as 
within an individual. By in- 
volving this field it spreads 
coherence throughout the en- 
tire environment," . 

According to the ntahansbi 
- who was not present at 
yesterday’s event bnt was rep- 
resented by another Indian 
boly man, his holiness Jagad 
Guru Shankaracharya — it 
needs (mly the square root of 1 

per cent of the five billion 
world population to create 
sufficient coherence to spread 
throughout tbe globe. 

The maharishi is therefore 
building a township outside 

Delhi where he will establish a 
community of 10,000 

Observers were confident 
yesterday that, by the time all 
10,000 were capable of direc- 
tional flight, peace in the 
world would indeed be uni- 
versa!. 


Chirac claims 
cohabitation 
working well 

Paris - In his first full-scale 
press conference since becom-

months ago, M Jacques Chirac 
played down the recent differ- 
ences between him and Presi- 
dent Mitterrand and said he 
saw no reason why "cohab- 
itation" should not last (Susan 
MacDonald writes). 

He said that throughout the 
election campaign his party 
continued to evoke the possi- 
bility of cohabitation, with a 
head of state and a Prime 
Minister coming from two 
different political families. 

Appearing calm and good- 
humoured and very much in 
command of the situation, M 
Chirac refused to be drawn on 
President Mitterrand's refusal 
to sign the Government's 
decree on privatization of 
certain nationalized indus- 
tries. 

He did not feel that presi- 
dential power had been dimin- 
ished under cohabitation.

Japan dashes foreign 
hopes on trade and 
cuts back on spending 


Japan has put national in- 
terests to the fore and set strict 
spending limits for next year, 
shrugging off demands from 
the United Slates and Europe 
that it should pour more 
money into its economy to 
boost imports and cut its huge 
trade surplus. 

As the Cabinet gave its 
stamp of approval to stern 
Finance Ministry recommen- 
dations yesterday, Mr Yasu- 
hiro Nakasone, the Prime 
Minister, did some serious 
horse-trading with the other 
leaders of his ruling Liberal 
Democratic Party (LDP) on 
the main party and govern- 
ment posts for the immediate 
future. 

LDP leaks from the meeting 
revealed that Mr Nakasone, 
fresh from a landslide election 
victory this month, has won 
an extension of his current 
term in power, ending in 
October, by giving his poten- 
tial successors and rival LDP 
faction leaders the second and 
third posts in the party. 

The Cabinet put a ceiling of 
32.930 billion yen (£141.6 
billion) on government spend- 
ing for the fiscal year 1987, 
starting on April I, in an 
attempt to trim top-heavy 
bureaucracy and cut down a 
government debt which, in 
relative terms, is bigger than

Island ban ends 

Tokyo — The Soviet Union 
agreed yesterday that Japa- 
nese citizens wishing to visit 
the graves of their ancestors 
on two islands north of Japan 
which are now Soviet military 
bases can do so without visas 
(our Correspondent writes). 

The Japanese Foreign Min- 
istry said Moscow had agreed 
after a 10-year ban to re-open 
the islands, which it took from 
Japan along with two other 
islands in the dosing days of 
the Second World War. 

Japan had argned_ that a 
visa requirement implied Sovi-

Japan is still not sure if it 
should make its own. 

The Government also de- 
cided to boost overseas aid by 
7.5 per cent to 668 billion yen 


just' when Japan is seeking to 
extend its influen 


] uence abroad. 

But the Cabinet also an- 
nounced that, despite its firm 
policy to get Japan out of its 
current fiscal mess, it would 
remain open to further bud- 
getary considerations, which 
is likely to mean a few trillion 
yen extra to pump up domes- 
tic demand later in the year. 

LDP sources, perhaps in 


expectation of disappoint- 
ment abroad at the strict 
budget, said that Mr Naka- 
sone win, when he forms a 
new Cabinet today, appoint 
his intra-party rival, Mr Kiichi 
Miyazawia, as Finance Minis- 
ter in place of Mr Noboru 
Takeshita. Mr Miyazawa is 
known for advocating greater 
monetary and fiscal stimula- 
tion of the Japanese economy 

Mr Nakasone will certainly 
be confirmed as Prime Minis- 
ter in today’s special session of 
Parliament. Political analysts 
and LDP sources now think 
that Mr Nakasone will stay in 
power from between six 
months to more than a year. 

The two primary candidates 
for the succession have al- 
ready agreed that he should 
stay on longer to carry out his 
main policies — partly because 
they are not ready to challenge 
him seriously, and partly be- 
cause his record election tri- 
umph has made him almost 
inviolable. Mr Takeshita and 
the Foreign Minister, Mr 
Shintaro Abe, have instead 
agreed to give up their execu- 
tive posts for the key party 
positions. 

Mr Takeshita, Med 62, who 
is still building up firm control 
of the LDP's biggest faction, 
has become the party's secre- 
tary-general, putting him first 
in line as the next Prime 
Minister. 

Mr Abe, also aged 62. 
becomes third in rank as 
chairman of the LDP Execu- 
tive Council. Mr Takeshita 
replaces Mr Shin Kanemaru, 
party stalwart and chief be~ 
hind-the-scenes mover, who is 
stepping down to allow these 
new leaders their head. 


Modai hits Peres 
with final insult 


From Ian Murray, Jerusalem 
Mr Yitzhak Modai, Israel's in his resignation at a special 


razor-tongued Justice Minis- 
ter. opted to resign from the 
Government yesterday rather 
than wait to be sacked for his 
fresh and probably calculated 
attack on Mr Shimon Peres, 
the Prime Minister. 

This time Mr Modai was 
extremely rode about die way 
Mr Peres handled die so- 
called Shin Bet affair, with its 
involved allegations of miscon- 
duct by the counter-intelli- 
gence agency . and senior 
politicians. 


Cabinet meeting called by Mr 
Peres to deal with his rebel- 
lions minister. 

Mr Modai, a qualified law- 
yer. had complained to the 
private meeting that, through- 
out the Shin Bet affair, Mr 
Peres had shown that be 
“knows as much about the law 
as he knows about eco- 
nomics”. He also said he felt 
bitter about his transfer. 

As reports of the meeting 
came out, he immediately 
accepted interviews to elabo-

Ministry into the supposed 
backwater of the Justice Min- 
istry, after the outspoken Lib- 
eral Party leader accused him 
of being “a flying Prime 
Minister” with no nnderstand- 
ing of economics. 

In resigning yesterday Mr 
Modai averted a political cri- 
sis which could have brought 
down the coalition Govern- 
ment and so deprived Mr 
Yitzhak Shamir, the Liknd 
leader, of his promised chance 
of becoming Prime Minister 
from October. 

In stepping down, however, 
Mr Modai made it dear that 
be expects to be rewarded for 
his sacrifice by being brought 
back into the Cabinet as soon 
as Mr Shamir takes over. 

The insults that led to the 
resignation began at a private 
meeting in Mr Modai's home* 
town m Herzliya on Saturday, 
con tinned by way of television 
interviews and after a half- 
hearted radio apology on Sun- 
day, and culminated yesterday 
in unrepentant comments 
made shortly before he handed 


He told one interviewer that 
the first mistake in the Shin 
Bet affair was in leaking what 
was happening before it had 
been dealt with properly. He 
said the affair had weakened 
the Prime Minister's position 
as a politician, giving him 
considerable satisfaction. 

Asked why he had not given 
Mr Peres the chance last 
month to consider the appoint- 
ment of a new Attorney- 
General, be showed bow 
strong a grudge he still held 
for his transfer out of the 
Finance Ministry, where he 
could have claimed credit for 
Israel's economic recovery. “I 
gave Peres the same amount of 
time as be needed to transfer 
me,” he said. “I was not 
obliged to consult the Prime 
Minister on the Attorney- 
General's appointment This 
is the Justice Minister's 
right" 

While heaping insults on 
Mr Peres, Mr Modai went out 
of his way to be nice to Mr 
Shamir, the. Likud leader. 
“When Shamir takes over we 
shall not be in the hoe every 
other day." 

He admitted there was no 
love lost between him and Mr 
Peres, but he said be had only 
been relating facts, and if the 
Prime Minister had hem of- 
fended then he was sorry for 

fhaf. 

Mr Peres, who had also 
threatened last November to 
dismiss his blunt Trade and 
Industry Minister, Mr Ariel 
Sharon, for Insulting him, was 
urged by his Labour Party 
colleagues not to even try to 
find a compromise with Mr 
Modai on this occasion. He 
was warned that to do so would 
mean a loss of credibility.

to divulge details of the type of 
unauthorized experiment be- 
ing conducted at the Cher-

25 and blamed by an official 
investigation for the explosion. 

Questioned by Western cor- 
respondents, Mr Gerasimov 
said that it was not 
“important" to spell out the 
aims of the experiments being 
conducted by workers at the 
plant on their own initiative. 
The Politburo pledged that all 
those involved would be

Mr Gerasimov, who ap- 
peared taken aback by the 
repeated questions, asked 
Western reporters what kind 
of further information they 
were seeking. “It is clearly 
evident that these experiments 
were being held at the initia- 
tive of the people involved. It 
was a very dangerous initi- 
ative," he said. 

The only doe so far made 
available in the Tass account 
of the report's presentation to 
the Politburo was that experi- 
ments “with turbogenerator 
regimes” were being conduct- 
ed by the workers without 
adequate permission. 

Mr Gerasimov was unable 
to say for certain if the full 
report of the state commission 
would be made public. 

To tiie surprise of reporters, 
be was also unable to provide 
the identity of the present

Expulsion from China is the 
most likely fate awaiting a 
New York Times correspon-

,by authorities since last 
'Thursday, soirees hero said 
yesterday. 

Mr John Baras, aged 41,

Mr Barns, who holds dual

Chinese law anyone can be 
detained for up to 10 days 
without cause, according to 
diplomats here. 

“There are three possible 
scenarios involving John

Chinese law said yesterday. 
“The Chinese could release 
him and say the whole thing 
has been a mistake, or they 
could release him aid expel 
him from the coon try for

Publicity alerted 
Bolivian cocaine 
producers to raids 

Jf .. w _ n™, 


From 

A major anti-narcotics 
drive involving Amen ran 
troops in Bolivia has so for 
turned out to be abustonly for 
thedrugbusters. 

After four days of airborne 
raids, in which special squads 
of Bolivian police were flown 
US Army helicopters to 


m 


suspected cocaine-processing 
factories deep in the northern 
jungle, only one such installa- 
tion has been located and one 
arrest made. 

It seems that the enormous 
publicity given to the opera- 
tion because of the American 
involvement has tipped off 
the drug traffickers. 

On the one successful raid — 
at a ranch called El Zorro (The 
Fox) — police found a labora- 
tory capable of producing 
3.300 ib of cocaine a week, 
two airstrips and accommoda- 
tion for 75 workers — includ- 
ing a basketball court and a 
kindergarten. 

But the place had been 
abandoned a week ' earlier, 
according to local Indians who 
witnessed the frantic activity 
there and the numerous flights 
in and out by light aircraft. 
The single arrest came purely 
fortuitously when a plane 
landed at the ranch during the 
raid: the 17-year-old co-pilot 
was detained as the pilot fled 
into the jungle. 

At least two subsequent 
raids turned out to be abortive 
due to “bad information". 
The targets proved to be 
innocent cattle ranchers. 

The weather then lent a 
hand at the weekend to botch 
the operations. Low cloud and 
heavy rain descended over the 
northern Beni region making 
further flights impossible, 
even for the six highly sophis- , 
ticated Biacfchawfc helicopters 


airlifted to Bolivia last week 
from the US Southern Com- 
mand in Panama. 

About 160 A men can sol- 
diers, pilots and engineers are 
taking part in the joint opera- 
tion, which is scheduled to last 
two months. But so vast is 
Bolivia's illegal drug-produc- 
ing network that the mission » 
likely to make only a small 
dent in a cocaine industry 
worth an estimated $3 billion 
to producers and traffickers. 

The raids are being aimed . 
initially at the clandestine 
laboratories where coka leaf is 
turned into a paste for ship- 
ment to refining plants, princi- 
pally in Colombia, Brazil and 
Peru. 

Bolivia's vast coka crop 
may not be affected. Estimates 
of the area under coka leaf 
vary from 90,000 to 300,000 


acres. The US State Depart- 
s of the 


ment says 35,000 tons 
leaf are produced annually, 
making Bolivia second to Peru 
as a producer. 

The US has withheld half 
the $14 million it was to have 
given as aid this year to. 
Bolivia because' it foiled to 
carry out a promise to eradi-. 
cate 10,000 acres, of the crop. 

Both the present and previa 
ous governments have been 
reluctant to risk losing support 
in the countryside by destroy- 
ing the livelihoods of tens of 
thousands of people. Nor, is 
Bolivia' prepared to damage its 
environment by spraying vast 
areas with chemicals. - 

Bui the main reason Bolivia 
is reluctant to act vigorously 
against its illegal drug industry 
may be- that its earnings- 
exceed the rest of the country’s 
$500 million gross national 
product in legitimate 
enterprises.

Protests as pollution signs go up on Portuguese beaches 


Hotels angry over 
‘foolish’ warning 


From Martha de la Cal, Lisbon 
Hotel owners and muniri- Carcavelos beach — were in 


pal governments have protest- 
ed indignantly over the 
Ministry of Health's warning 
to bathers to stay off many of 
the beaches on Portugal's 
famous Costa do Sol, between 
Lisbon, Estoril and Cascais. 

Professor Rodney Cart- 
wright, director of the Public 
Health Laboratory in Guild- 
ford, Surrey, was called in to 
give his opinion on the 
amount of pollution on the 
beaches, which the Ministry of 
Health claimed was above 
EEC limits. 

He had been on a similar 
mission last summer to the 
Algarve, after impure drinking 
water and sewage in the sea at 


the immediate Estoril-Cascais 
area. "The others are down the 
coast towards Lisbon,” he 
said. 

Senhor d'Argant disputes 
the inclusion of Bafureira in 
the Government's list, saying 
that recent tests of the water 
there have shown it to be 
clean. 

He objected to all of the 
beaches being put in the same 
category and said that the 
ministry's findings were based 
on tests made in April and 
May. before an elaborate 
pumping system had been 
installed on the beaches. 

Senhor d'Argant said that 
bis Cascais municipality has a 



modern laboratory which tests 


Albufeira had sent hundreds 
of British and Scandinavian 
tourists to hospital with gas- 
troenteritis and salmonella, 
prompting Portuguese au- 
thorities to take immediate 
measures to clean up the 
beaches. 

The Costa do Sol is 25 miles 
long. Most of the nine beaches 
considered too dangerous for 
bathing are nearer to Lisbon 
than to Estoril and Cascais. 

They are Alges, Cruz 
Quebrada, Caxias, Santo Am- 
aro de Oeiras, InateL, Torre, 
the west end of Carcavdos, 
Bafureira and the Praia do 
Peixe in Cascais. Warning 
ps have been posted on ail 
the contaminated beaches. 
The Mayor of Cascais, Se- 
nhor Georgs d’Argant, point- 
ed out that only two of the 
nine beaches — the Praia do 
Peixe and the west end of the 


the beach water every 1 5 days. 
“We have only two beaches 
that are polluted. The other 18 
are all dean," he said. 

Among the beaches given a ' 


clean bill of health by the 
mayor were the central and 
eastern beaches at Carcavdos, 
Parede, Sao Pedro do Estoril, 
Sao Joao do Estoril, Monte 
Estoril, Estoril-Tamariz, Con- 
ceicio in Cascais and Guin- 
cbo. 

Senhor Lima de Carvalho, 
general secretary of the Estoril 
Hotel, Casino and Golf 
Group, said that the Costa do 
Sol Hotel and Travel Associa- 
tion was sending a strong 
protest to the Health Ministry 
for what he called its "foolish 
proclamations at this time” 
and pointed out that pollution 
was "no worse now than it was 
10 or 15 years ago”. No 


tourists had complained and 
hotel occupancy had not gone 
down since the reported 
pollution. 

Senhor Lima de Carvalho 
said that when Estoril's gam- 
bling casino contract is re- 
newed at the end of the year, it 
will have a stipulation where- 
by £45 million will go to the 
improvement of tounst condi- 
tions on the Costa do Sol — 
£13 million of which .will be 
devoted to wiping out pol- 
lution. 

“Within four years,” he 
said, “the entire 40 kilometres 
of beaches from Lisbon to 
Cascais will be dean and safe 
for bathing.” 


Hospital is hit by food poisoning 


Lisbon - A serious out- 
break of food poisoning caused 
by salmonella has virtually 
dosed Lisbon's most modern 
hospital, the Santa Cruz 
(Martha de la Cal writes). 

Doctors, nurses, cleaning 
staff and office workers are 
among 1 18 of the 540 employ- 
ees who have needed treatment 
since some of them began to 
feel ill on July 7 after eating in 
the hospital cafeteria. 


All patients waiting for 
operations or convalescing 
were sent home or transferred 


to other hospitals* Only 25 
patients — those in intensive 
care or with heart or kidney 
transplants — were allowed to 
stay in the special sterile area. 

The hospital authority 
called in government sanita- 
tion department specialists to 
examine the entire staff and 
dean the hospital. 

Dr Manuel Macedo, direc- 
tor of the hospital, said that he 
believed the outbreak was 
caused by imparities leaking 
into a broken water pipe. All 
water pipes are being steril- 


ized or replaced. Dr Macedo 
said some of the staff had 
returned yesterday and that he 
expects the hospital to be 
ready to receive patients again 
within a week. 

The hospital was built as a 
private institution in 1972 and 
was considered one of the most 
modem and best-equipped in 
Europe. But, after it was taken 
over fey workers and national- 
ized after the 1974 revolution, 
it remained dosed until 1980, 
when it re-opened as a state 
hospital specializing in heart 
disease. 


Israel’s winged lioness may be white elephant

The dust sheets came off 
Israel’s new Lavi fighter air- 
craft last night as the band of 
the Israel Air Force proudly 
played a fenfare- But the Lavi 
— which means lioness — was 
at its official rolling ont in 
danger of turning into a white 
elephant rather than the shin- 
ing white hope of Israel's air 
defences into the next century. 

It has taken 6 Vi years and 
$1.2 billion to get the Lavi off 
the drawing braids and onto 
the tarmac. The one on show 
last night was prototype num- 
ber 2, because prototype num- 
ber I is already being made 
ready for its first test flight at 
the end of September. 

Israel Aircraft Industries 
(IAI), the state-owned compa- 
ny which designed and built it, 
is rushing to get the Lavi into 
the skies a? quickly as possible 
to thwart determined Ameri- 
can attempts to kill it before it 
flies.

at the ceremony was Mr Ezer

development would pay for ft.

Israel's conventional Army

(UPI) — The strong earth- 
quakes that shook California 
yesterday occurred in an un- 
usual volcanic field, including 
the Long Valley caldera, that 
scientists say is due for a 
violent eruption. 

The epicentre of the quakes 
was about 15 miles from a 
162-square-mile volcanic cra- 
ter formed by a tremendous 
explosive blow-out 700,000 
years ago. 

In recent geological history, 
the area has had an eruption 
roughly every 600 years — and 
the last one was about 600 
years ago. . 

Such a new eruption could 
be on a scale comparable with 
that of Ml St Helens in 
Oregon, but probably would 
be small, said Mr James 
Savage of tbe US Geological 
Survey. He said there could be 
loss of life, considerable dara- 
and voluminous ash 
clouds. 

The two cities in the general 
area. Bishop and Mammoth 
Lakes, are small but each year 
swell with tourists. At the 
height of the. ski season, 
Mammoth Lakes has 30,000 
people. The cities are about 1 5 
miles from the caldera. 

tinder the area, ground 
movement is vasL During tbe 
past '-six years, the Geological 
Survey reports the ground in 
parts of the area rose 18 in. 

That large an uplift presum- 
ably was caused by intrusion 
of molten rock into a magma 
reservoir five miles beneath 
the surface, according to 
scientists. 

The area experienced 
quakes in range of six on the 
Richter scale in 1980. Since ' 
then significant quakes in the 
five-range have occurred 
about every 18 months. • 
Monday's quakes came rough- 
ly at the same interval.

SPECTRUM 


A small circle of good companions 


t- 



Prince Andrew and his 


bride have different 


friends because of their 


differing background! 


But, as Christopher Wilson found, each can 
count on a groupor dose, loyal confidantes 


P rince Andrew's and Sa- 
rah Ferguson’s separate 
and distinctive choice oi 
friends highlights the dif- 
ference between a young 
Prince determined to discover all 
walks of life and a young woman 
contented with those most famil- 
iar to her. 

Sarah Ferguson, growing up in a 
jypical English village, working on 
' the farm and generally mucking in 
with everyone else, came to 
understand her position in the 
strange pecking-order that is En- 
glish country life. Predictably, as 
she grew into a young woman, she 
chose her friends from the same 
background of squirearchy and 
lesser aristocracy. 


The choosing and making of 
difficult 


friends was much more 
for Prince Andrew. His father’s 
choice of Gordonstoun for his 
education had its merits and 
drawbacks: few of his school 
friends lasted into adult life be- 
cause of the very disparity of 
background that prompted his 
father's choice of school in the first 
place. Coupled with an early 
instruction that a prince must be 
cn garde when befriending people, 
it was hard for Andrew to create 
the same easy relationships his 
future wife had. 

There have been a few excep- 
tions. however. Aside from Ids 
friends in the Royal Navy, where 
close relationships develop under 
stress and dilute with a new 
posting, probably the Prince's 
closest companion is Charlie 
Young, a contemporary from his 
public school days. 

Though it fells to Prince Edward 
to be Andrew's supporter at his 
wedding, it was Young, the exu- 
berant 28-year-old son of a Mid- 
lands hardware manufacturer, 
who helped to organize the 
Prince’s stag party. 

Young was Andrew’s senior at 
school, where he was put in charge 
of the young Prince's welfare. 
Their friendship deepened after 
both left Gordonstoun, and when 
Andrew found himself in London 
between postings, it was to Young 
that he turned for his social Life. 
He helped Prince Andrew in his 
determination to discover a wider 
circle than, say. his older brother 
did. Through him, the Prince met 
Koo Stark, the American actress 
with whom he enjoyed a relation- 
ship lasting two years. They had 
been introduced through Young's 
friend Ricci Lewis, an American 
of mature years who had once 
been a model and was the former 
wife of the society hairdresser 
Leonard. 

For a time she served as an 
unofficial hostess for the Prince, 
introducing him to models and 
others of London's beau monde. 
Not all her introductions were a 
success, however: one dinner par- 
ty included the Old Etonian 
commodity broker Justin Frewen, 
a nephew of Viscount Selby. 
Frewen was later jailed for two 
years on fraud charges. 


The Prince's interest in photog- 
raphy, which he shared with Miss 
Stark, arose not from his proximi- 
ty to the professional activities of 
the Earls of Lichfield and Snow- 
don but from the Queen berselC 
still an enthusiastic camera- 
woman. Bui his latent skills were 
encouraged and developed by an 
American. Gene Nocon, who. 
became a friend and adviser five 
years ago. 

Nocon runs the Photographer’s 
Workshop in London and took 
some of the official photographs 
for the Royal engagement along 
with Terence Donovan and Prince 
Andrew himself. But his influence 
on Andrew has been as a printer, 
demonstrating the effects which 
can be created in the darkroom 
after the picture has been taken. 
Their relationship, though close, 
remains on a commercial basis: 
Nocon is paid for the lime spent 
helping to produce Andrew’s' 
pictures. 

Another Gordonstoun friend, 
Rupert Beckwiih-Smith, is the 
brother of Carolyn Beckwith- 
Smith. in whose Clapham house 
Sarah Ferguson lived until the 
announcement of the Royal en- 
gagement. Among the Prince’s 
early girlfriends was another 
Gordonstoun contemporary, Clio 
Nathaniels, whose father, the ar- 
chitect Ray Nathaniels, is based in 
Nassau. She became a visitor to 
Windsor Castle. 

Once free from the constraints 
of bis hardy education, however, 
the Prince largely turned else- 
where for his company. Clio 
Nathaniels was followed by the 
daughter of a nurse. Kinstie Rich- 
mond, who was invited by the 
Queen to Balmoral and Sandring- 
ham. She, in turn, was followed by 
Carolyn Seaward, the beauty 
queen and former Miss United 
Kingdom. 

Other young women who be- 
came part of the Prince’s circle’ 
ranged from Carolyn Herbert, the 
daughter of Lord Portchester, 
Royal racing manager (she later 
enjoyed a close friendship with the 
jockey Steve Cauthe'n), to a busi- 
nesswoman, Xenia Howard- 
Johnson.

had previously been for- 
him. He particularly., 
the friendships of the 
model and actress Katie Rabett, 
the actress Finola Hughes and the 
model Clare Park because of the 
different worlds to which they 
gave him access. 

In each case he chose people 
who were outside his restricted 
family circle and. you might say 
unkindly, his class. Only in Sarah 
did he return to the more femiliar 
waters of Debreti and Burke. 

It has to be said that, although 
Prince Andrew’s name was con- 
nected with a number of pretty 
girls, he was rarely photographed 


in their company. Unlike his elder 
brother, who suffered irritating 
public speculation each time he 
escorted a new companion to the 
theatre or to a charity function, the 
Prince was rarely seen in the 
company of those girls it was 
claimed he favoured. He preferred 
private dinner parties and occa- 
sional visits to night-clubs like 
Annabel's: his reputation as a 
womanizer was much exagg- 
erated 

: Sarah Ferguson, by contrast, 
rarely strayed outside her own 
social sphere. One of her closest 
friends after leaving Hurst Lodge, 
herSunningdale school, was Char- 
lotte Eden, daughter of the former 
MPfor Bournemouth, Lord Eden. 
At the age of 21, the two girls 
toured South America together for 
a year, staying first with Sarah's 
mother and her polo-player hus- 
band, Hector Ban-antes, on their 
sprawling estate in Argentina, then 
taking a bus across the continent 
before flying home. Charlotte 
subsequently married one of Lord 
McGowan's sons, becoming a 
farmer's wife. 

Sarah’s more recent friends 
include the Duke of Rutland's 
rock-singer daughter. Lady Teresa 
Manners; her cousin. Lucy Man- 
ners, who is the daughter of Lord 


John Manners, the former Life 
Guards officer and High Sheriff 
for Leicestershire: and the former 
debutantes Clare Wentworth- 
Stanley and Lulu Blacker. 

Her serial circuit was that 
followed by many girls on the 
fringe of the debutante world, 
enjoying the cocktail- parties, 
house parties arid balls given by 
ambitious mothers without acta- - 
ally labelling themselves as debs. 

Sarah is godmother to the 
daughter of Vanessa Llewellyn, a 
niece of the Duke of Norfolk, who 
is married to the entrepreneur- Dai 
Llewellyn. Her close friend and 
confidante during her unofficial 
romance with Prince Andrew was 
Carolyn Beckwith-Smith. a land-, ' 
owner’s daughter who ran a 
business with Lady Settrington, 
the wife of the Duke of Richmond 
and Gordon's eventual heir. Lord 
Settrington. They would take 
wealthy clients round London 
showing them the sights and the 
shops. 

One rather more exotic friend is 
Florence Belmondo, the lissom 
daughter of the French actor Jean- 
Pa ul Belmondo: they met at 
school. The two women enjoyed a 
holiday recently on Antigua as 
Sarah Ferguson recovered from 
the immense blast of publicity 


claim responsibility for the en- 
gagement in the first place, having 
invited Sarah to a Windsor Castle 
house party during Royal Ascot 
week,- at which die and Prince 
Andrew first- became attracted to 
each other.. * .. 



arah Ferguson’s two well- 
publicized romances 
were less ambitious than 
Andrew's: a sports execu- 
tive. Kim .SmithrBing-. 
ham, and a motor-racing 
consultant, Paddy McNally, 
.-whose children she helped to look 
after during a three-year relation- 
ship. Both men came firmly from 
within her own social world. 

Through Smith-Bingham, a 29- 
year-old Old Etonian she met in 
Argentina while in her teens, she 
discovered the fashionable Swiss 
ski resort of Verbier, where he 
would lake her on his business 
trips as a representative of a 
sportswear company. She spoke 
French and improved her skiing to 
a very respectable standard . 

The relationship lasted three 
years, foundering through the 
couple living in separate countries 


and following different styles of 
life. Smith-Bingham has since 
married and has a one-year- . 
olddaughter, but he and Sarah 
remain close friends and he will be 
a guest at the wedding. 

Far more serious was her rela- 
tionship with the former journalist 
and sporting entrepreneur Paddy 
/ McNally, a Stonyhurst-educated 
.widower with two teenage sons 
and a chalet fn .Verbier. He used to 
manage the Formula One world 
champion Niki Lauda and Is nosAr 
a motor-racing consultant and 
entrepreneur based in Geneva. . 
The relationship ended when Sa- 
rah decided it was unlikely to lead 
to marriage. 

In general, the close friends of 
Andrew and Sarah are drawn from 
outside both the professional 
classes and the hard core of British 
aristocracy, though the couple do 
owe a debt of gratitude to the 
Duke and Duchess of Roxbuighe, 
-who provided the romantic back- 
drop of Floors Castle in Rox- 
burghshire for the final sealing of 
their relationship and the Prince's 
proposal of marriage. 

The duke, a former Blues and 
Royals officer who saw service in 
Ulster before going to Cambridge 
to take an economics degree, is 
five years older than Prince An- 


F, . \ 




When the time came for 
Andrew’s proposal of marriage, it 
was Roxbuighe who 1 suggested 
that the couple should be guests at 
his Vanbrugh-designed castle, set 
in 60,000 acres. He and his wife, 
the sister of the Duke of Westmin- 
ster, Have been rewarded for their 
unique hospitality in a charming 
way: [ their daughter. Lady 
Rosanagh Innes-Kerr. will be the*" 
only young attendant at the Royal 
Wedding not directly related to 
the bride or groom. 1 • 

Although both the Prince and 
future Princess are 26, an age at 
which most young people have 
acquired a nucleus of friends to 
last throughout adulthood, neither 
has acquired an easily identifiable 
“set". The restless nature of 
Andrew's career in the Royal 
Navy has not helped: nor have 
Sarah’s wanderings .in America 
and on the ski slopes ofEurope. A 
home and future (ogether are 
likely to change that. >

Michael O’Mara is set to 
become a very rich man. He is 
aiming to turn publishing 
timescales mi their head by 
producing “ the fastest book 
ever”. Just nine days after 
tomorrow's ceremony. The 
ITN Book of tbe Royal Wed- 
ding wQ] go mi sale. 

And even if Sarah Ferguson 
makes a unique contribution to 
history and discovers just 
cause or impediment as to why 
she should not be joined in 
holy matrimony, OTVfara wiD 
not be caught out He has 
taken oat £500,000 of inst- 
ance against such an eventual- 
ity — a figure which, in spite of 
his relnctance to discuss the 
li tilde of his potential 
fits, gives a due to the 
reward involved as publisher 
(or architect) of the book. 

The rise and rise of Michael 
O’Mara could almost be a 
fairy-tale, if it didn’t involve so 
much hard cash. Eighteen 
months ago he opened for 
business in his sooth London 
bedroom com office, equipped 
with just a typewriter. Bnt 
O'Mara was no novice writer 
waiting for the big break. 

Originally from Philadel- 
phia, he bad worked in pub- 
lishing for almost 20 years and 
been deputy chairman of 
Weidenfeld and Nicolson. 
“We produced 200 books a 
year", he says. "We had a 
selling staff of eight and a 
pnblidty department of two. I 
decided the only way to do it 
was fewer books, more effort." 


There is big money in the book that goes on sale only nine 
days after tomorrow^ ceremony, reports Yvonne Roberts 


Alastair Burnet having pro- 
duced 20,000 words of text 
within seven days. It stayed in 
the best-seller lists for eight 
weeks. 

More importantly, 
O’Mara's reputation had ap- 
parently been made, at least by 
royal word of mouth. The 
Palace asked if he would be 
interested in producing a book 
out of the long interview to be 
conducted by Sir Alastair with 
the Prince and Princess of 
Wales. At first O'Mara 
thought it was a joke. 

“Charles and Diana obvi- 
ously saw it as a sort of 
‘Empire Strikes Back*", he 
says. “Fleet Street had made a 
lot of money out of than, now 


they wanted to make a lot for 
charity." 

The book, along with its 
sequel, due to be published in 
September, will probably raise 
more than £1.5 mfltioa for the 
Prince of Wales Trust 

It also established his win- 
ning formula: high-gloss Ital- 
ian paper for the coffee-table 
look; almost three times as 
many colour photographs as 
usual: a low price (£7.95 for 
the first Charies-and-Di ex- 
tended interview); photo- 
graphs by Tim Graham; 
oleaginous text by Sir 
Alastair: total control by the 
Palace and high-speed 
prod action. 

British sales have so far 


Tim Bishop 


surpassed 300,000 for In Per- 
sons The Prince and Princess of 
Wales. O'Mara says that if 
The ITN Book of the Royal 
Wedding sells 150,000 be wfil 
be more than happy — this one 
will be all for profit. 

His royal output has put him 
in a privileged position. He 
knew abonf the engagement 
two weeks before it was an- 
nounced in Much. He also 
knows what tbe dress will look 
like. And a series of informal 
photographs have also been 
taken of the royal couple. 

So for, 96 pages of the book 
have been prepared. The re- 
maining 32 are what will make 

publishing history. Tomorrow, 

O'Mara will spend several 


hours in a Covent Garden 
studio with his boojk designer, 
Martin Bristow, watering 
monitors relaying the foil 
coverage from ITN’s 10 cam- 
eras. A Japanese machine wiD 
convert video into still 
photographs. 

After the ceremony, 
O’Mara will return to his 
office to lay ont the rest of the 
book. The next morning, Sir 
Alastair will produce 1,500 
words to ■ supplement his 
commentary. 

Then O’Mara and Bristow 
will depart in a helicopter for 
Southend and the typesetter. 
From there they wiB travel by 
private jet to Barcelona and 
tbe printing works. 

„ All being well. The ITN 
tof* °f the Royal Wedding 
wiD be an sale in Britain on 
August 1.

The royal dress 
in my attic 

Lindka Cierach, designer of the royal wedding dress, talks 



about her work and her relationship with Sarah Ferguson^ 
as millions wait to see a gown that is likely to reflect the 
art-loving bride’s vision of herself as a Gainsborough lady

‘Sarah was absolute bliss, she 
let me get on with it; whatever 
I dill was fine by her . * 

LINDKA CIERACa above 


I t all started, says Undka 
Cierach, from a silhou- 
ette. “Two months ago 
the basic design was 
there but it is only when 1 
had fined the toile against the 
flesh that l knew what I had to 
do.” 

The wedding dress of the 
year is in the attic studio of 
Lindka’s neat terraced house. 
She is giving it the finishing 
touches, especially “the most 
difficult bits in the bodice 
area”. 

For the first time the dress 
for a royal wedding is being 
orchestrated by a designer 
with the same tastes, back- 
ground and style as the bnde. 
Instead of the reverential 
courtier-couturier, we have a 
33 year-old woman in safari 
trousers, a white T-shirt and a 
merry smile. 

The approach came from 
Sarah, who rang up Lindka 
and asked her to submit 
sketches. “1 knew her socially 

' a little but ! wanted to see her, 

to establish a rapport. A 
wedding dress is such a per- 
sonal thing, it is very impor- 
tant to get .the bnde s 
personality into if*. 

Lindka Cierach’s most 
striking wedding dresses have 
incorporated unusual materi- 
als such as fur and jewels, 
inspired by her favourite peri- 
od of history. 

-1 love Renaissance tex- 
tures and embroideries”, she 
explains. “I studied history of 
an. I never have time now to 
go through paintings and 
books, but those ideas are 
stored up and memories of 
wonderful necklines and 
sleeves come pouring out.” 

The inspiration flowed 
when Sarah Feiguson gave her 
the wedding dress commis- 
sion and they “slimmed 
down" her original sketches to 
just two ideas. lindka was 
then able to give full rein 10 
her own imagination. “With 



Sarah it has been absolute 
bliss,” she says. “She bsaically 
said to get on with it and 
whatever I did was fine by 
her.” 

Undka is self-taught, apart 
from a very brief spell at the 
London College of Fashion 
and with Valentino in Rome. 
Her attention to detail is 
legendary. Undka compares 
her work to that of her 
companion, sculptor Jona- 
than Ken worthy, whose im- 
pressive bronze of an African 
woman dominates one end of 
the drawing room. 

The royal wedding dress 
requires that finish and detail, 
but it also needs a grand 
design — a firm sculptural 
shape for the first impression 
and the television audience. 
Lindka is aware of that need. 


Quartet for one, the 
bridal composition 

John' 


S he is mindful too of 
Sarah's need to find a 
fashion niche quits 
apart from that of the 
tall, model slim and 
fashion conscious Princess of 
Wales. “Sarah has been put 
into that position,” says 
Undka. She* s far more inter- 
ested in people than clothes. 

“I like clothes to flatter a 
woman; I like good quality 
fabrics; and 1 like a woman to 
look like a woman", she says. 
**I want to make women 
feminine, alluring and attrac- 
tive. They can look sexy, but 
in a ftm way. not by showing 
their bosoms.” 

Undka*s critics say she is 
too compliant, and will exe- 
cute clients' dreams that it 
might be wiser not to realise. 
She dismisses, firmly but with 
a merry smile, the idea that 
she is the executor of others 
ideas. “I am in a business 
where you have to be tactful , 
she said. “People love to think 
they have done everything 
themselves. But I am the 
designer and I create the dress 
myselfl”

18th century painting, is the 
style we can expect to set 

The wedding dress will not 
be an Edwardian froth of lace. 

For Sarah sees herself not as a

ough lady.

to make her royal bride look 
less like Bo Peep and more 
like Marie Antoinette — or 


RIOT OF ROCOCO 


perhaps Madame de Pompa- 
dour, who was painted by 
Boucher in 1759 hi the ulti- 
mate rococo dress — all bows, 
flounces and frilled sleeves. 
The choice of duchess satin — 
rather than filmy voile, lace or 
Diana's silk taffeta - is a 
surprise at die height of die 
summer. But it is part of the 
fed for 18th centnry dress. 

Art as die inspiration for 
fashion is not a novelty, even 
in royal circles. The fairy-tale 
wedding dress for Princess 


Elizabeth in 1947 - also in 

duchess sadn — was scattered 

with crystal and pearl embro^ 
dery from a Botticelli 
painting by Norman HartneU. 

Earlier, the paintings of the 
Victorian Winterhalter had 
inspired HartneU to create mi 
ethereal image for Queen Eliz- 
abeth, later Queen Mother. 

t indlra Cierach specializes 
in delicate embroidery. Her 
themes are likdy to beperson- 
al rather than grandiose, in- 
corporating, perhaps, the 


like those of Boucher, left, and Reynolds 


bumble bee and thistle of 
Sarah's coat of arms. Jewelled 
anchors were favoured when 
the future Queen Mary mar- 
ried her sailor Prince in 1893. 

Sarah Ferguson, whose 
heart is in the country and 
whose naturalness is her 

greatest asset, required a dress 

that is graceful rather than 
grand.

Lindka Cierach has naturally 
& the bulk of the ac-

Ferguson's dress but there are 
ihreeothef women playing 
key voles in the making of 
tomorrow's bride. It is the first

usual flowers. She has made a 
name for English country 
flowers in the Marylebone 
shop she started with a £200 
overdraft five years ago. My 
idea of a bridal bouquet is that 
it should not be a solid lump, 
biit should flow and bend Mia

aisle.” says Jane. The bouquet 
is being made up to her design 
by Longmans and includes a 
sprig ofmyrtle from Osborne 
House — grown from Queen 
Victoria's wedding posy ot 
1840. 

The wild curls and lively 
personality of hairfresser 
Denise McAdam echo the 
bride herself. Denise, of coif- 
feur Michae\jobn. is familiar 
with long wsses anc luaras. 
She has worked for Pnnqess 
Anne, who, like Sarah, has 
never wanted to cut her long

burgh. still speaks with a 
strong Scottish _ accent- She 
says that long hair -especially 


If it is usually worn loose — 
requires dressing up. For her 
royal client she uses a variety 
of effects including jewelled 
clips and decorative bows. 

Teresa Fainniner pained as 
a beautician and is in the 
thoroughly modem school of 
beauty therapy that insists on 
understanding the body and 
how it functions. 

We can expect to see Sarah 
Ferguson in the softest lilacs 
or gentle russets far removed 
from the blue eyeshadow and 
pastel pink lips of convention- 
al Sloane style. . 

Sarah has been advised not 
by the glossy fashion maga- 
zine Vogue, but by its sister 
ma gazi ne Brides. Her hair and 
beauty experts, and the official 
wedding photographer, Albert 
Watson, are used to creating a 
fashion image for the camera. 
Their joint task tomorrow is 
10 reflect modem style .yet to 
keep in sharp focus the charac- 
ter. taste and individuality of 
the royal bride. 


Sarah Ferguson may choose 
flowers as a tiara for her bridal 
headdress. For she is follow- 
ing an unwritten royal role 
that young girls — and espe- 
cially commoners — wait until 
marriage to wear a grand tiara. 

There are tiaras old, new 
and sapphire Wue for Sarah 10 
borrow from the royal collec- 
tion. Princess Anne wore for 
her own wedding the family § 
ancestral Hanoverian dia- 
mond fringe tiara - which dm 
Queen also wore on her wed- 
ding day. 

Diana wore her own Spencer 

family tiara with her brMsi 
gown, rather than the royal 
bow-knot tiara which the 
Queen gave her as a wedding 
gift Sarah is also expected to 
receive an heirloom piece. Bnt 
princess Margaret’s deep dia- 
mond tiara that she wore on 
her wedding day, was bought 

for her by the Royal Family m 

a Sotheby's sale. 

Will Sarah say it with 
flowers? The young Queen 
Victoria chose just a simple 
wreath of orange blossom. A 
more imaginative headdress, 
including Sarah's favourite 
ribbons and bows in flowers, 
could be tomorrow’s choice. 

Sarah has already been 
experimenting discreetly with 
floral hair ornaments, both at 
the grand reception for the 
German state visit earlier this 
month and with a fresh rose in 
her hair at a private dinner in 
London last week. 

An elaborate flower bow, 
piaiiA out of the petals of white 
lilies decorated with bunches 
of grape hyacinth, was made 
np by royal wedding florist 
jane Packer In conjunction 
with Sarah’s hairdresser for 
the Queen's sixtieth birthday 
•- in Aprfl. We can expect 
me same team effort for 
Sarah’s bridal hair, with or 
without a regal “fonder”.

no constitu- 
tional crisis. In the Queen’s 
tiny entourage of dose politi- 
cal confidants there is some- 
one who told The Sunday 
Times; that the Queen di£ 
approved of her Prime 
Ministers' policy over the 
mmei?’ strike, the US attack 
on Libya, and the future of the 
Commonwealth. He should be 
identified — with the help of 
the security services, if nec- 
essary - and removed from his 
position of trust. If he cannot 
be identified, the purge should 
extend as far (which is not very 
far) 'as is necessary for the 


critical Select Committee re- 
port on the Westland affair 
being blunted by pre-holiday 
inenia and gently buried 
among royal nuptials. 

Such an outcome — never 
very honourable in intention 
— does not now appear very 
likely. We have the usual end- 
of-term games at Westminster 
in which ‘Tory grandees” vie 
with Thatcher “loyalists” for 
the attentions of the lobby 
correspondents: this time, 
* however, the weapons of the 
playground have been supple- 
mented .with the biggest of big 
guns,. the Queen's name, the 
threat to the constitution itself. 

Why is this so? Why is it

friends to espy the crouching 
figure of Lord Whitelaw be- 
hind every enemy-held goose-

ever outside the Palace gates. 

There is absolutely no rea- 
son to believe that the Queen 
(whatever her private views) 
would want those views to 
appear on the. nation's break- 
fast tables in the extraordinary 
way that they appeared last 
Sunday. But even if the Queen 
here to feel that she had 
encouraged one of her advisers 
to make herviews more widely 
known, even if she were now 
ready- to accept some of the 
blame ..herself for the 
weekend^ events, she should 
nonetheless act with severity 
and despatch.- In order to 
preserve the modem mon- 
archy she may have to borrow 
front the panoply of her less 
concerned and less constitu- 
tional predecessors. 

The Prime Minister, on the 
other hand, has longer term 
lessons to draw as the par- 
liamentary season drawsto an 
end: She can be legitimately 
angry at 'this latest attack on 
her government. But it is not 
so much the substance of the 
changes themselves as the con- 
fidence with which they are 
used by her party opponents 
that should cause her concern. 

Since the Westland debacle :

atmosphere as full of plots as a 
children's story book? The 
answer has to be that the 
Government’s authority has 
still not recovered. There has 
been too much wasted time. 

Senior ministers — most 
noticeably Sir Geoffrey Howe 
— have railed recently for “a 
new phase of Conservatism”. 
Mr Norman Tebbit’s hand grip 
on the. manifesto-making 
machinery has been shaken off 
by an inner cabinet of min- 
isters, -chaired by the Prime 
Minister and- controlled from 
Downing Street But the mani- 
festo committee has done little 
but “clear the decks” of 
embarrassing legislation. The 
ship is now well-nigh empty. 
And it is drifting. 

The sometimes-whispered 
rift between the Prime Min- 
ister and her party chairman is 
of greater significance than her 
more widely canvassed diffi- 
culties with Lord Whitelaw's 
grandees. She can curb Mr 
Tebbit’s manifesto-making. 
She cannot so easily control

UNDER WESTERN EYES 


IP 

1 A i 


up Oil 
side 


The detention of foreign 
journalists is a dangerous pas- 
time, if only because other 
journalists are liable to bring 
the matter to public attention. 
But the arrest by the Chinese 
police of Mr John Bums, the 
New York Times correspon- 
dent in Peking, on suspicion of 
spying presents dangers of 
especial magnitude for the 
Chinese leadership because of 
its determined attempt to en- 
hance the country’s image. 

Over the past five years 
China has conducted a highly 
successful public relations ex- 
ercise abroad. By more open 
reporting and discussion of the 
country’s ; problems, it . Has 
encouraged the illusion that 
Chink - is moving towards 
pluralism. By allowing a mea- 
sure of freedom to market 
forces., it has given the im- 
pression .of a country 
experimenting with capital- 
ism.” And by opening more 
than “100 cities to foreign 
travellers and allowing in- 
dependent tourists into the 
country, it has fostered uie 
notion that foreigners in China 
are free , to travel where they 
choose. 

:None of these assumptions 
is correct Deng ■ Xiaoping s 
China is still a totalitarian 
state where the Communist 
Party is the supreme - ana 
often : arbitrary — authority* 


is in many areas barely able to 
sustain the indigenous popula- 
tion, let alone provide a sur- 
plus for sale. As for freedom of 
movement the extent of that 
has been demonstrated by the 
arrest of Mr Bums for entering 
an "area prohibited to for- 
eigners. 

In a way, China has fallen 
victim to its own propaganda. 
It has given the impression of 
liberalizing a great deal, while 
in fact liberalizing a little/The 
result is confusion in which 
both foreigners resident in 
China, and often Chinese 
themselves, are unsure which 
regulations they should ob- 
serve. This' is as true of 
economic policy as it is of 
traveh and there is a tendency 
for people to bend the ndes to 
see how flexible they are. The 
authorities in turn, especially 
in the provinces, tend to turn a 
blind eye to misdemeanours 
because they themselves have 
only a hazy idea of the rules. 

In view of this, the decision 
by the authorities in Peking to 
arrest Mr Bums may be a 
genuine error. It may proceed 
from the fact that he signed a 
confession of guilt while in the 
closed area and this had to be 
followed up in Peking. It might 
reflect the particular sensitiv- 
ity of the area he allegedly 
entered. Or it might be a signal 


realize it will temporarily 
harm their image abroad 

Jf this is so, it is probably a 
miscalculation. The associ- 
ation of foreigners and spies 
was common in pre-revolu- 
tionary China and continues 
to be common in totalitarian 
countries, which tend to judge 
others by their own standards 
of information-gathering. The 
revival of this association by 
the Chinese authorities now 
confirms the persistence of 
attitudes which China has 
been at pains to consign to 
history. 

Moreoever, both the fact 
and the manner of Mr Bums' 
detention — including the 15 
hours he spent, being quefr 
tioned at Peking airport — 
recall less palatable episodes 
from China’s recent past. They 
recal L, in particular, the treat- 
ment meted out to foreigners 
and dissenters during the cul- 
tural revolution — a period 
described by the present 
authorities in China as a tragic 
aberration. 

So long as Mr Bums — a 
British citizen and the first 
foreign journalist to be ac- 
cused of espionage in China 
since 1979 — remains in 
detention, the thoughts of 
many' will "turn" back to’ the 
excesses of the cultural revolu- 
tion. But they will also turn 
forward to the transfer of 
Hongkong in 1997. And they 
may, albeit reluctantly, draw a 
connection.

his own bosses. It may be a 
trusted and tested system. But 
it is also a rigid one. 

It ought to be possible for a 
Prime Minister to consider 
changing her party’s advertis- 
ing agency without the in- 
evitability of a full-frontal 
clash with the party chairman. 
Few believe that it is possible. 

It ought also to be possible 
for her to envisage life without 
her press secretary, Mr Ber- 
nard Ingham, who — amongst 
others at Number Ten — looks 
certain to be castigated by the 
Select. Committee on Thurs- 
day for his role in the West- 
land affair. Few believe that it 
is possible. 

Mrs Thatcher's administra- 
tion is beginning to look 
locked in its pasL To free itself 
for the future it needs fresh air, 
a fresh look at how the nation 
is feeling. Image-makers and 
information officers have their 
place. That place is not on top. 

There are big questions here 
for Mrs Thatcher — perhaps 
one for the Queen too. It is not 
so very long since a Queen's 
counsellor would have died 
rather than make clumsy 
political interventions through 
the press. Why should one do 
so today? 

Let us assume that it is not 
the case that the Queen is tried 
to breaking point by the 
activities of Mrs Thatcher. It is 
surely just as certain that her 
advisers are tried beyond 
endurance by the demands of 
the nation’s curiosity. The 
meeting of those popular de- 
mands — very largely through 
the media of press and : 
broadcasting — has made the 
monarchy the modern success \ 
story which we join in ! 
celebrating this week. 

But perhaps a surfeit of royal 
rubbish rots a courtier’s

Queen, someone who took 
pride in the . glowing, royal 
image, forgot about the royal 
reality. Mrs Thatcher has su£ 


From Lord Chalfont 
Sir. It is perhaps not surprising 
that letters from Lord Blake and 
Lord Bauer on the one hand and 
Lord Walston on the other (July 
1 9) should have underlined one of 
the central paradoxes of the 
situation in southern Africa. 

One of Lord Walston's more 
prudent and farsighted require- 
ments is “lo ensure that when the 
war is over, the interests of the 
West have noi been irreparably 
harmed.” Yet. as Lords Blake and 
Bauer suggest, irreparable harm is 
what will certainly follow if we try, 
however ineffectually, to bring the 
Government of South Africa to its 
knees by means of mandatory 
economic sanctions. 


The Queen’s role 

From Mr H. V. Hodson 
Sir. Mr Enoch Powell's analysis 
(July 17) of the constitutional 
relationship of the Queen and the 
Commonwealth is strong in logic, 
given his premise that the 
Commonwealth as a political 
entity is a pretence, but is weak in 
historical perception. The British 
Constitution itself is almost en- 
tirely conventional rather than 
legally structural. 

In particular, the rule that the 
Monarch speaks and acts in public 
only on the advice — that is at the 
dictation — of lire Prime Minister 
is founded on historical conven- 
tion. not on statute, a convention 
that we gradually established over 
two centuries after the end of 
Stuart claims to absolute mon- 
archy. Its extension to indepen- 
dent Commonwealth countries 
which the Queen may visit as their 
head of state is comparatively 
recent and is still marginally 
exposed to different glosses. 

It is therefore wholly in confor- 
mity with the way in which our 
national Constitution has devel- 
oped that the Queen's rights and 
duties as head of the Common- 
wealth should be gradually clari- 
fied and settled by the process of 
convention, adapted to conditions 
as they arise. The fart, which Mr 
Powell stresses, that the Common- 
wealth has no constitutional struc- 
ture may slow down that process 
but does not prevent iL 


Royal wedding ^ 

From Canon D. J. W. Bradley 
Sir, Those of us who still rejoice in 
the Establishment of the Church 
of England and her Majesty’s role 
as Supreme Governor would be 
grateful if we could be spared the 
tactlessness of your mode of 
reporting the decision not to have 
a sermon at the impending royal 
wedding. 

“Prince Andrew and Miss Sarah 
Ferguson." you say (July 17), 
“have decided to dispense with a 
sermon” and the Palace is re- 
ported as saying that it had been 
the couple’s own decision not to 
have any form of address by the 
Archbishop of Canterbury. For

Sir, Major-General TrythalPs let-

tern have felt it correct to be 
addressed as “Simon”;. I am

Last exit to Clapham 

From Mr Graham Birch 
Sir. The English judge's stereotype 
of the ideal reasonable man is one 
riding on the top deck of a 
Clapham omnibus. My recent 
experience white travelling on 
such a vehicle drives me to ask. “is 
the traditional legal view realistic 
in 1986?” 

Fifteen of the other 20 male 
passengers wore headphones con- 
nected to portable record players. 
The other five had on their laps

I believe, are colloquially spoken

in mind Soviet aid. it is interesting 
to speculate how much help the 
impoverished peoples of Africa 
might expect from a country 
which has failed to provide itself 
with an effective industrial system 
and whose agricultural economy is 
an almost unmitigated disaster. 

If. on the other hand, he means 
Soviet arms, it might be as well to 


columns. It is. however, difficult 
to take entirely seriously Third 
World politicians who believe that 
they can coerce xbe freely elected 
Government of this country into 
changing its policy on a matter of 
such international significance by 
threatening to keep their compet- 
itors away from an athletics 
meeting. 

There are. it is possible to argue, 
more important issues for this 
country and the free world than 
the survival of the Common- 
wealth Games. Indeed it might not 
be loo bizarre lo su g gest that there 
are more important issues for this 
country and the free world than 
the survival of the Common- 
wealth itself.

CHALFONT,

Conventions are closely linked 
to precedent, which may be an 
equivocal guide where the circum- 
stances differ from those of the 
precedent examples. Precedent 
steins from someone's action on a 
particular occasion; if not over- 
ruled that action becomes the 
nucleus of convention. Whatever 
the Queen does as bead of the 
Commonwealth, not being con- 
trary to existing convention, is 
inherently precedent which grows 
into convention, in turn becoming 
pan of unwritten constitution. 

Apart from political advice, 
which the Monarch must accept 
from a Prime Minister, the Queen 
is at liberty to consult whatever 
persons she pleases on whatever 
matter. At the present juncture, 
she would certainly be within her 
constitutional rights in seeking, as 
head of the Commonwealth, such 
informal counsel from Common- 
wealth Prime Ministers and others 
deeply concerned, and in acting 
upon it in any manner consistent 
with existing convention as to the 
rights and powers of the Crown 
wherever she may be upon the 
occasion. 

If necessary she could so act in 
some monarchical member coun- 
try of the Commonwealth other 
than the United Kingdom, which 
in this context is. at most, primus 
inter pares. 

Yours faithfully.

sheer, blatant Erastianism and 
discourtesy to the Archbishop this 
surely takes some beating! 

A wedding sermon is certainly 
an incredibly difficult exercise ana 
questionably appropriate, and 
there is every reason why the 
wishes of the couple concerned 
should be taken into account But, 
if the delicate balance between 
Church and State is to be ns 
spected, it should surely at least 
appear that the final decision is 
made by the Church.

Puzzling plurals 

From Mr Michael Adams 
Sir. Military grammatical usage, 
which places a higher value on 
logical accuracy than does its 
civilian counterpart (tetter. July 
9), decrees that the correct plural 
of 1G (Inspector of Gunnery) is 
IsG. On this analogy, the plural of 
MP must surely be MsP and the 
form MPs should be kept as a 
singular abbreviation for “Mem- 
ber of Parliaments". 

Thus the House of Commons 
should be said to contain more 
than 600 MsP, a few of whom, 
because they are members of the 
European Parliament as well as of 
the national Parliament, could be 
described as MPs. 

Yours faithfully.

From Dr Noel Hencghan

advised us that the last shall be 
firsi and that the first shall be last

Birkbeck grant 

From Mr L F. Andrews 

Sir. I do not know by what right or 


competence the chairman of the 
UGC asserts (July 1 6) that “It is a 
general belief of Londoners that 
they deserve preferential 
treatment.” 


In any case, he misses the point. 
The unfairness in the situation, if 
there is any. lies not in the feet that 
London has a Birkbeck but in that 
the rest of the country hasn't.

From Mr John H. Harris 
Sir. I would like to use your 
columns to support and augment 
the comments of Sir Ronald 
Gibson reported in your issue of 
July 10. 

In our experience very few of 
the pensioners in the London 
Borough of Tower Hamlets are 
really poor financially. Most can 
cope, except with heavy fuel bills 
in exceptional weather some even 
manage to put money by for a 
“loverly funeral”. 

Out of a total population (based 
on the 1981 census) of 149.200 in 
the borough, 22,500 are believed 
to be aged 63 or oven 9,800 are 75 
or older. Thirty-six per cent of the 
borough's pensioners live alone — 
most, by far. in high-rise blocks or 
concrete jungles on the large 
estates. 

Loneliness is the blight, the 
.debilitating disease. It is our 
function to combat loneliness by 
home visiting; gaining the con- 
fidence of the old people: becom- 
ing their true friends taking them 
out of their environment in our 
minibus — particularly the house- 
bound. We have been doing this 
for 31 years. Many are the ones 
who do not want to live, as life 
holds nothing for them and offers 
them only more loneliness. 

White we scarcely scratch the 
surface of the need, given the 
finance and more manpower we 
could do so much more. Having 
received substantial help from 
GLC in the past, we are now at the 
mercy of the local authority who 
have not, so fer, proved to be too 
merciful, and a small number of 
firms, charities and private in- 
dividuals. 

The fight against loneliness is 
not one which the social services 
are geared to meet It is voluntary 
organisations such as ours on 
which the burden and the privilege

I would urge every parish to

Recovery from grief 


From Dr Frances Clegg 
Sir. I read with some interest Peter 
Burman's statement (July 5) that 
people often take decisions about 
memorials too early in the process 
of grieving. He then suggests that 
memorials should not be allowed 
other than in exceptional cases 
until a year has elapsed. 

I am not aware of any research 
into the factors which prompt 
people to make decisions about 
burial. cremation or 
memorialisation, or subsequent 
regrets which lhe bereaved may 
have. 


I am addressing these issues in a 
small survey and hope it will start 
to give us some scientific, rather 
than anecdotal, data. 

Yours faithfully,

Passing the parcel 

From Mrs Georgia Wordsworth 
Sir. I sent a parcel to Belgium, 
correctly stamped, on December 
30. two books worth £3. for my 
grand-daughter's birthday on 
January 13. . 

Six weeks later a large van with 
two men drove eight miles from 
Brussels with the parcel and 
demanded the equivalent of £7 
Customs duty. 

My daughter refused to pay, 
telling them to return it to me (my 
name and address were dearly 
printed on the back). 

Today, five months later, the 
postman brought my parcel back 
and asked for £13.50 for delivery. 
Is this a record in bureaucratic 
idiocy?

77ic third Afghan War appears to 
have been embarked on with a 
massive lack of enthusiasm on both 
sides. It began on May 3. 2919. and 
lasted only three months, during 
which time the fighting was 
inconclusive, but when peace was 
signed at Rawalpindi King 
AmaauUah had obtained what he 
set out to win, British recognition 0 /

HEAT AND 
SAND-STORMS ON 
AFGHAN FRONTIER. 


Monumental choice 

From the Chairman of the Exec - 
utive Committee of the Society of 
Genealogists 

Sir, In stressing the. albeit im- 
portant, architectural aspects of 
churchyard memorials, your 
correspondents overlook their 
original purpose. They were 
erected as permanent memorials 
to deceased individuals and fam- 
ilies. Thus they represent an 
important national archive .which 
is being steadily destroyed by the 
ravages of oiir climate, together 
with clearance scheme! 

. The Society of Genealogists for 
75 years has been one of the bodies 
which has bom actively encourag- 
ing and organising the copying of 
monumental inscriptions. As a 
result we have in our library 
transcripts from over 5,000 burial 
grounds. Our efforts cannot, how- 
ever, keep up with the current rate 
of erosion and destruction. 


HILL RAIDERS’ 

SIMPLE CREED. 

(From Our Special 
Correspondent.) 

Headquarters, N.W. Frontier 
Force. June 20 (by mail). 

The comparative inactivity on 
the Dakfca front has led to lively 
speculation regarding the possibili- 
ties of the future. If the enemy does 
not come to terms, and our troops 
are committed to a summer cam- 
paign. there will be lively work 
when they get into action again. 
After nearly five years of war in 
France, Mesopotamia and else- 
where, the British Tommy justly 
considered himself entitled to 
leave. Quite a number of our men 
were actually on their way home 
when they were called back to fight 
through the appalling heat of a 
frontier summer. The leave season 
of the Indians had also begun, and 
both British and Indian rightly 
blame the enemy far their 
disappointment. 

All our troops are now as 
comfortably housed as circum- 
stances will permit. They complain 
mostly of inactivity and of the 
' sand-storms which are of daily 
I occurrence. Both are unavoidable 
evils, and are accepted as such. But 
if there is to be more fighting all 
will be heartily glad to leave Dakka 
behind. 

I have been up the Khurd 
Khvber in the direction of 
BasawaL After proceeding about a 
mile one can see the plains leading 
to Jalalabad. The heat is terrible on 
the plains, and even the Afghan 
cannot stay in Jalalabad in mid- 
summer. 

There have been practically no- 
raids by Dacoits during the past 
week, and those that have been 
attempted have been of a very- 
trifling nature. These raiders are 
bad characters whom the tribal 
elders are unable to control. 

They are usually men with, 
nothing to lose and owning no 
property within the confines of 
British' India. When their re- 
sources are exhausted— as they are 
periodically — they raid the fertile 
plains and do not stop at murder. 
The dominant thought of the 
raider in normal times has been 
well expressed in the following 
words: 

“Those rich plains have been pul 
there in contiguity to our mountains 
because God intended them io b< 
our lawful, prey, that when we have 
no harvest we may go down and rear 
theirs; and when we are hard up. anc 
I have a big fine 10 pay to the British 
j Government, we may lighten some 
of the wealthy Hindus of the mone> 
that they have accumulated through 
usury and other ways which Goc 
haies." 

The war has, of course, offered 
unique opportunities to the border 
raiders. The wonder is that we have 
not beard more of them. 

A CAPTIVE’S ADVENTURES 

The guard of the armoured train 
which was derailed recently near 
Kachagari. and who was taken by 
raiders, has been released. He is 
none the worse for his experience, 
bis only trouble being whether he is 
going to be cut 12 days’ pay for 
absenting himself from duly, with- 
out leave! It appears that in the 
mSlee, when the raiders were firing 
on the occupants of the train, the 
guard was grabbed and hurried off. 
It was not until some days later 
that his whereabouts became 
known. It appears that in taking 
him to the hills the tribesmen 
reached a village friendly towards 
us, and that proved to be their 
undoing, because the maliks-came 
out and insisted on taking over the 
guard, on the ground that they (the 
friendly villagers) would be blamed 
for the occurrence. Thus, reluc- 
tantly, the raiders parted with their 
captive, much to their chagrin and 
his relief. The friendly maliks then 
took him on foot across country, 
mountainous country, like the 
Khybet. and handed him over to 
the authorities at Landi Kotal, 
whence he was conveyed to Pesha- 
war. The guard states that his 
captors informed him it had been 
their intention to take him to 
Kabul as a big reward was offered 
for a British prisoner if delivered 
alive. 


On the gravy train 

From Miss Margaret Atkins 
Sir. Professor Ettinghausen (July 
16) reports that one of his gradu- 
ates of this year will soon be- 
eaming more than most univer- 
sity lecturers. He appears to infer 
from this that we underpay our 
university lecturers. Another, not 
necessarily incompatible, in- 
ference from the same informa- 
tion is possible: perhaps we- 
overpay our bankers. 

Yours faithfully,

Cost of living

worry me. What does worry me is-' 
that an advowson which cost 
£1.000 before I was bora — say 
£30.000 in today’s money — is 
worth nothing. I would gladly 
accept £500 but that too would be *

Three golfing paintings of the 
1890$ brought prices far be- 
yond the auctioneers expecta- 
tion at Sotheby's yesterday. 
Charles Edmund Brock's 
“The Bunker" soared to 
£23.100 (estimate £6,500 to 
£8,000)* ‘The Putt” made 
£20,900, and *The Drive" 
£18,700 against similar esti- 
mates. 

While paintings featuring 
the game of golf are not 
exceptional* the depiction of 
specific shots, as in these 
po in t ings, k pwwoiwl and gives 

them a special interest. 

A series of engravings after 
the three paintings were pub- 
lished in 1894 have become 
popular icons in golfing com- 
munities. “The Banker” was 
bought by Mr M. Ohnan. an 
American dealer spec ializin g 
in golf memorabilia, while the 
other two were bought by 
private collectors. 

The other highlig ht of the 
golfing section of a sale devot- 
ed to a variety of sports was 
the £12,650 (estimate £2£00 
to £3,200) paid for an eigh- 
teenth-century iron cteek re- 
discovered in the secretary's 
office of the Goodwood Golf 
Chib in the 1920s. A second 
early deek secured only 
£2,640 against the same esti- 
mate. 

. Christie's yesterday an- 
nounced the forthcoming a ac- 
tion of the contents of Callaly 
Castle in Northumberland on 
behalf of Major Simon 
Browne. One of the historic 
Border castles, it has its 
origins in a fourteenth-century 
peel tower and has been added 
to or altered in every succeed- 
ing century. 

Major Browne, aged 91, is a 
former master of foxhounds 
and the sale wiD include 
sporting pictures by Sartorins, 
Aiken. Seymour and others. 
There is also fine eighteenth 
and nineteenth-century furni- 
ture and an important group of 
Gobelins tapestries. The sale 
is planned for September 22- 
23. 

Callaly was the third house 
in Britain to be fitted for 
electricity in the 1890s. 
Among the cariosities iff the

original fittings.

the process for extracting and

spent fuel dements, died on

He wenton to enjoy further 
careers both as an archaeolo-

John Moiyneux Fletcher, 
was bom on July 5, 1910; the 
younger son of Clarence 
George Eugene Fletcher, town 
clerk of Islington. He was 
educated at King's School, 
Ely, Shrewsbury School and 
Balliol College, Oxford, where 
his tutor was (Sir) Harold 
Hartley. 

He graduated in chemistry 
and then moved to 
neighbouring Trinity College 
where he taught for a year, 
studying under the watchful 
eye of (Sir) Cyril Hinshd- 
wood, FRS, a future Nobel 
prize winner. 

In 1934. he was awarded a 
Commonwealth Fond Fellow- 
ship and went to the Universi- 
ty of California at Berkeley 
where he undertook a three- 
year research programme 
which led to a PhD; artificial 
radioactivity had just been 
discovered and Fletcher was 
one of the first to use radioac-

CORRECTION 

In the examination results from 
St Andrews University the 
name of Elizabeth J. Ashurst 
was omitted from the list of 
second-class honours, division 
i. in French and German, 


Girton. 

She was. a pioneer in the 
difficult art of combining a 
distinguished career with do- 
mestic responsibilities. And 
though she was not' prolific as 
an author, her contributions 
to seventeemheentury studies 
and to George Eliot criticism 
never foiled to be lucid, sensi- 
tive and illuminating. 

She was born in London on 


family, and going about- her 
accustomed concerns 'with the 
courage she had earlier shown, 
when her son was lost by tragic 
chance while climbing in the 
Alps. On one or two occasions* 
this courage moved her to . 
public action from which she 
normally shrank. 

Thus in the case of ReghuLv 
Penguin Books, she was a

American scientists have suc- 
cessfully nsed beams of laser 
light to slow down free atoms 
enough to allow atomic physi- 
cists to scrutinize them 
closely. 

The experiment is being 
described in the United States 
as a breakthrough which will 
make it possible to explore 
fendamental states of matter 
that have never been observed. 

In an ordinary vacuum 
chamber, scientists at AT & 
Ts Bell Laboratories in 
HolmdeL, New Jersey, used 
seven criss-crossed laser 
beams to create what they 
have called “optical 
molasses". 

Certain atoms that normally 
move at several miles a second 
were slowed to ordinary walk- 
ing speed, making it possible 
for their motion to be observed 
by the human eye. 

The optical trapping of at- 
oms reties on tight exerting 
pressure on objects it strikes. 
Normally, this radiation pres- 
sure is negligible compared to 
gravity or air pressure, but in 
the vacuum of deep space 
radiation pressure becomes an 
important means of moving 
matter around. 

The researchers captured 
about 500 atoms of sodium 
metal from a pellet that had 
been vaporized in a stainless 
steel vacuum chamber with 
video cameras and measuring 
instruments. Six laser beams 
from ail directions were con- 
centrated on a cubic 
centimetre of space. 

A seventh beam, timed to a 
different frequency, exerted a 
different kind of light force, 
setting up an attraction based 


on the atoms' interaction with 
its energy field. The atoms 
became tike moths, seeking 
the region of higher laser 

intensity- 

By moving the trap beam, 
scientists were able to move 
the atoms as well, using the 
laser as a land of optical 
tweezer, and trapping the at- 
oms for up to fonr seconds. 

The same research team has 
also prodaced new records for 
cold and density in a gas. 
Because temperature depends 
on atomic motion, the process 
cools the atoms to vastly 
colder temperatures than can 
be achieved by ordinary 
refrigeration. 

The most immediate appli- 
cation of the results might 
come in improved atomic 
docks, according to the New 
York Times , which reported 
the experiment By relyiag on 
the natural vibration of atoms, 
slicing time into intervals of 
the order of a billionth of a 
second, such docks let naviga- 
tion systems use satellite sig- 
nals to fix global positions to 
within a few dozen yards. ..

The Human Touch 
Fischer Fine Art 


Stephen Duncalf 

Victoria Miro 


Firmin Rocker 
Stephen Bartley 


Ursula Edgcmnbe 
Gillian Jason 


In the early Eighties Fischer Fine Art 
was famous, among other things, for 
its championing of the then contro- 
versial or very newly fashionable 
photo-realist strain in British art, 
through a series of summer shows 
under the general title of The Figura- 
tive Approach. Time moves on, and 
fashions in art move with it This year 
the equivalent slot, empty for a 
couple of years. * s filled with a show 
selected by Mary Rose Beaumont and 
entitled The Human Touch (until 
August 8 ). , 

The change of emphasis is subtle, 
but clearly present. The work, by JO 
young 'artists from England and 
Scotland, is still figurative, but in a 
much more general sense than hereto- 
fore: influences from Neo-Expres- 
sionism, which has become virtually 
the painter's lingua firanca in the years 
since Zeitgeist* are evident almost 
throughout, though in at least one 
case, that of Ian Hughes, we can 
perhaps drop the “Neo" and take him 
at bis word when he speaks enthusias- 
tically about the effect good old 
original German Expressionism has 
had on him. 

The habit, engendered by the 
"generation of '64", of art dealers 
looking avidly through the portfolios 
of soon-to-graduate students of the 
Royal College of Art, the Slade and 
other prominent schools faded away 
somewhat when the expected crops of 
new. Hockneys, Caulfields and such 
failed to materialize. But it is still true 
that most graduating artists with even 
a hint of individual talent will likely 
be discovered and displayed. 

The ever-enterpriang Pa ton Gal- 
lery had three from the RCA on show 
-this, year even before the final 
exhibition opened at the college itself. 
And two more of the instantly notable 
talents, Christopher Cook and Ansel 
Knit, turn up only a tittle later in the 
current Fischer selection. Both of 
them have the advantage of being 
recognizable on sight: Krut with his 
odd, obsessive scenes of apparently 
sexual by-play painted in a technique 
improbably dose to that of the later 
Sickert, and Cook 'with his even more 
curious landscapes, sometimes, as in 
Afiermath,. hinting at recent human 
presence almost but not quite obliter- 
ated.. Both of them go in for mainly 
subdued, brownish colours, but de- 
ployed with great, precocious skill. 





A loner's lost world: Firmin Rocker's The Travellers (1942) 


Don Giovanni 

Glyndeboume 

At the end of an unprecedent- 
edly various Glyndeboume 
season, after visions of 17th- 
century Venice and 20th- 
century America, of epic 
Verdi and intimate Britten, 
there was the homecoming. 
Sir Peter Hall's Mozart pro- 
ductions have provided the 
company with a stable centre 
throughout the last decade, 
and his wary, dark-shadowed 
Don Giovanni has withstood 
revivals welL But. rather dis- 
appointingly, it comes near 
being sorely tested now. 

The less than distinguished 
impression it made on Sunday 
must have had something to 
do with the fact that this time 
it was not rehearsed by Sir 
Peter: the movement has be- 
come tired and stiff, and 
encumbered by the dire habit 
of making gestures to echo the 
musical ones. Of rourse the 
relationships are still in place, 
and the casting of Ottavio as a 
substitute Commendatore, a 
father-figure for Donna Anna, 
remains highly plausible. This 
staging also continues to 
mount a journey to hell that is 
both dramatically effective 
and in scale with the musi c. 
But. with whatever regrets, 
one has to conclude from the 
production's present dim state 
that it is time for Glynde- 
boume to take a new look at 
the work. 


and both have an intriguing strain of 
the sinister or the downright nasty 
about their work. 

A certain glumness seems to be the 
hallmark of this particular genera- 
tion. None of the 10 is actually cheeiy 
— not even Ian Howard, who is 
apparently obsessed with what look 
like holiday favours of various kinds, 
whoris and curlicues which might be 
fireworks or sweetmeats, or again 
might not From the general tone of 
his pictures, the only holiday which 
might feature them would be 
Hallowe'en. Simon Fraser is another 
Symbolist, Eighties-style, with paint-, 
ings and graphics full of vaguely (or 
perhaps, in his own mind very 
precisely) mythological reference; but 
at least his colour sense is light and 
bright, in the appealing tradition of 
the Scottish colourists. 

Another isolated and eccentric 
artist who might deserve the same 
dubious epithet is Stephen Duncalf, 
at Victoria Miro until August 15. His 
landscapes look tike nothing, really, 
except themselves. Perhaps there is a 
hint of the Twenties about them, m 
their delicate and precise formaliza- 
tion of the visual data on back- 
gardens and allotments and building 
sites, which some of the synthetic 
cubists might well understand .But 


curious surface treatment, which 
looks as though the paint has been 
carefully combed when wet to give a 
tapestry-like impression. In fret, I am 
told, each little groove has been 
created individually with a scalpel. 
However he does it, and whyever he 
does it, the effect is riveting, and at 
the very least memorably strange. _ 
Another loner, of a much senior 
generation, is Firmin Rocker, at the 
Stephen Bartley Gallery in Chelsea 
until August 2. His professional 
history is weird: bora in London in 
1907 of German/Russian parentage, 
he studied in Germany and worked 
there as a commercial lithographer, 
then in 1930 settled in New York, 
where he worked in an animated 
cartoon studio and as a book and 
magazine illustrator. Later on he 
began painting as well, and in 1984 
returned at long last to London, 
where he now lives. From that one 
would have no idea what to expect 
As it turns out he belongs to the 
American realist school of the inter- 
war years, a bit like Reginald Marsh 
or Paul Cadmus. His subject-matter 
is drawn almost entirely from the 
New York streets or subways, and the 


the Forties, and compare very well 
with better-known works by better- 
known artists who recorded the same 
lost world. _ , . 

A fortnight ago I mentioned the 
impressive showing made by Ursula 
Edgcumbe in . the Fine Art Society’s 
survey of Sculpture in Britain Be- 
tween the Wars. Further documenta- 
tion now comes in an exhibition 
devoted to Edgcumbe’s sculptures 
and paintings at the Gillian Jason 
Gallery until August 8 . The other 
sculptures shown confirm the golden 
impressions created by those at the 
Fine Art Society: she was evidently a 
very distinctive talent with a special 
feeling for men at work, whom she 
depicted with great solidity and fine 
economy. Her paintings are on the 
whole less compelling: there tends 
(oddly fora sculptor) to be something 
boneless and insubstantial about her 
human figures. However, again the 
interest in men at work shows to 
advantage; when, as in paintings like 
Tying Up at King's Lynn* the 
architecture of the scene predomi- 
nates, and the figures are reduced 
almost to Lowry matchstick-men, a 
real strength comes through- But in 
the main the judgement that she was a 


It may yet be that a better 
case for this revival will be 
made when Bernard Haitink 
takes over the conducting later 
in the run. Andrew Davis's 
handling of the score is more 
vigorous than co-ordinated, 
and the playing of the London 
Philharmonic tends to be 
heavy and rough in ensemble 
(though there was nice work 
from the serenades • in tiie 
dinner scene). The connection 
of stage and pit was also at 
[ 'hazard, particularly in the first 
act 


The cast is led by Richard 
Stilwell. who could surely 
have been helped by the make- 
up and wardrobe departments 
to look a little more lusting 
and dishy. But then his physi- 
cal unkemptness might matter 
a bit less if there were more 


allure in the voice: as it is. he 
sounds as ifhe has been on the 
road too long, and the I-0O3 
have taken their tolL He 
makes much of a head-voice 
which comes over with a 
hollow greyness rather lhan 
the sweetness that I imagine is 
intended, and his stronger 
singing lacks ease. It is sad to 
see a singer who has given 
much to this company placed 
in a role which hardly engages 
his strong points. 

The two ladies are much 
more successfully cast, Carol 
Vaness as Anna and Felicity 
Lott as Elvira providing a 
contrast as between Ingres and 
Delacroix. Miss Vaness has a 
marvellous creamy stateli- 
ness, achieving an expressive 
warmth that sublimely man- 
ages to avoid expressing any- 
thing at all: this Donna Anna's 
concern is above all with her 
pose, to which Ottavio is a 
prop. Meanwhile. Miss Lott 
emotes tike fury. In her en- 
trance aria I felt she did so loo 
much, her tone and phrasing 
being unavoidably affected by 
her efforts to stay tight-lipped 
But in the second act she took 
advantage of the opportunities 
to open out. 

The LeporeUo is Richard 
Van Allan, who seems to have 
played Leporello in every Don 
Giovanni 1 have seen, but who 
remains good-humoured 
about the enterprise and fun to 
watch and hear. Keith Lewis 
as Don Ottavio is also a 
familiar figure, though surely 
he cannot have sung before 
with such radiant confidence 
as he found here in the second 
act (like Miss Lou, he had 
encountered problems in the 
first). Dimitri Kavrakos is a 
lyrical Commendatore and 
Stephen DuPont a grim- 
voiced Masetto, but the most 
striking new interpret * 011 
the evening is Lesley Garrett’s 
Zerlina. Somehow, without 
compromising the cultured- 
ness of the Mozariian line, she 
slides into a touch of the 
earthiness of folk-singing: the 
result is something both con- 
trived and natural; it is also 
something decidedly erotic. 
And eroticism, unless it comes 
in the witty, slithery insinua- 
tions of Jonathan Hinden's 
continue playing, is a vital 
clement the revival needs.

Cheltenham Festival

After three years as Festival 
President, Peter Racine 
-'Flicker took his leave at 
Cheltenham's closing concert 
with the premiere of his 
Concerto for Orchestra as the 
,'4 centre-piece of the Roy" 
Philharmonic’s programme. 
Two of his symphonies, the 
First and Fourth, were also 
premtered here in years gone 
by, as well as other works of 
'his, and the new Concerto 
made a comparable impres- 
sion for . the strength and 
vigour of its ideas. 

While remaining consistent

neither leans too for back nor 
ventures too for forward.. tne

tive relationship, as ifthey had 
been composed as separate 
entities. However, an exposi- 
tion of ideas in terms of solo 
chamber groups late on m the 
20 minutes or so duration was 
expertly placed. 

Andrew Litton's cond ucting 
secured a responsive perfor- 
mance that betokened careful 
preparation and a dear sense 
of musical purpose, though he 
could not prevent some pas- 
sages from becoming impene-

Catlolica, on the Adriatic 
coast of Italy, enjoys a moth- 
like life-cycle. In winter it 
shrivels to a chrysalis of fewer 
than 20,000 inhabitants. In 
summer it emerges in the 
brilliance of 400 newly- paint- 
ed hotels and 10,000 beach 
umbrellas. Before the. World 
Wars it attracted the discrimi- 
nating bourgeoisie (Marco iu 
and Mussolini were regulars); 
now it spreads its wings for 
hundreds of thousands of 
package tourists from Germa- 
ny and the English midlands. 

In July Catlolica also hosts 
Mystfest. the only annual 
festival devoted to- firms ana 
fiction of mystery and detec- 
tion. Part-sponsored by tne 
huge publishing house of 
Mondadori, whose famous 
yellow-covered paper backs 
constitute the world’s largest 
regular output of formers, 
Mystfest lays special emphasis 
on links between literature 
and screen. 

Past editions have paia 
tribute to writers ranging from 
Hammett to Le Carre: this 
year’s star was Cornell Wool- 
rich, whose novels and stones 
have inspired film-makers for 

almost sixty years. At least 36 
films and 50 television adap- 
tations from his stones are 

recorded, some made in Ja- 
pan. Spain and the USSR. 
Among the more ^ 

Hitchcock’s Rear, Window 
and Truifout’s The Bride 
Wore Black.

zarre as one of his own stones. 
Born in 1903. in his childhood 
be was tossed from one to the 
other of his divorced parents. 
At eight he saw Madam 
Butterfly in Mexico City and 
(as he later claimed) was from 
that moment awakened to the 
meaning of art and the tragedy 
of existence. 

At 23, determined to be a 

new Scott Fitzgerald, he pub- 

lished a Jazz Age noveL Cover 
Charge. The following year ms 
second book. Children of the 
Rite, was filmed. Wool neb 
tried unsuccessfully to be a 
scriptwriter, and at foe sa ™ e 
time, in a bid to deny his 
homosexuality, mamed tne 
daughter of the veteran En- 
dish-bora producer J. Stuart 
Blackwn. The damage re- 
mained unconsummated, ana 

after a fortnight WoolrKh fled 

home to New York and 
m IJnS Mrs Woolrich’s death. 


thirty years later, mother and 
son were inseparable, always 
living in hotel rooms, appar- 
ently tied by complex bonds of 
love and hatred. Mrs Wool- 
rich was neurotically posses- 
sive: and Woolrich seems 
rareiy to have left her side or 
met anyone dse. By the time 
of her death in 1 958 he was a 
total recluse, diabetic and an 
acute alcoholic. Follo wing the 
amputation of a gangrenous

a wheelchair — an eene rein- 
carnation of the hero of Rear 
Window. He died in 1968- 
Through it all he wrote. In 
the Thirties he contributed 
innumerable stories to pulp 
magazines, and in 1940 began 
bis series of classic thrillers 
with The Bride Wore Black. 
He was so prolific that he felt 
obliged to adopt additional 
pseudonymous literary identi- 
ties as “William Irish” and 
“George Hopley”. 

His works were the essence 
of the Forties film noir. Set in 
lamplit city streets, bars, 
ifight-clubs and back rooms of 
cheap hotels, they encapsulat- 
ed an atmosphere of mystery, 
menace and fatalism that 
seemed to respond to the 
mood and needs of the anx- 
ious and uncertain years of the 
war and its aftermath. His 
plots could be shaky and his 
dialogue weak; but his descrip- 
tive writing often touched 
brilliance, and he had a genius 
for inventing haunting scenes 
and situations. Motifs . are 
recurrent - amnesia, night- 
mares. tragic beauties driven 
to murder, innocent heroes 
inextricably incriminated. 

It is invariably the problem 
with festivals that such retro- 
spective events as Catlolica s 
Woolrich screenings over- 
shadow any new films on 
display. In terms of the com- 
petition. Mystfest has the 
problem that the mystery 
genre is currently in a period 
of eclipse. 

It is also changing radically. 
In the old thrillers, the cause 
of paranoia was generally 
traced to private criminals or 
malevolent psychopaths. 
Nowadays the paranoia is 
more often inspired by the 
secret agencies of govern- 
ments and the menace- of 
nuclear science. Cattohca’s 
Grand Prix winner. Serge 
Leroy’s Le Qnatrieote Ptouroir 
( The Fourth Estate), and the 


British winner of the Special 
Jury Prize. David Drury’s 
Defence of the Realm, have 
exactly parallel subjects, the 
predicament of political jour- 
nalists who find out more than 
the Government wants them 
to know. . _ 

The French film is sticker, 
with the moral issues too 
neatly laid out Defence of the 
Realm* with its rougher edges, 
still looks good at second 
viewing. Denholm Elliott took 
the prize for Best Actor for his 
role, as a battered old hack 
with a remnant of honour still 
about him. 

Another British entry, Colin 
Bucksey’s adaptation of John 
Bowen's The McGuffi also 
tells a story of government 
agents who will stop at noth- 
ing to suppress evidence of 
ministerial indiscretion. 
Uiifortunatly the film (made 
for BBC Television) wanders 
off into in-jokes about films 
and festivals which must be 
incomprehensible to most of 
the audience and for the 
others embarrassing in their 
film-school naivety. 

Peter DuffelTs Letters to an 
Unknown Low. from a Boi- 
leau and Narcejac story, is in 
classic thriller style, and ele- 
gantly staged; but neither di- 
rector nor stare can overcome 
essential script weaknesses. 



Mystfest' s single new who- 
dunnit in the classic manner 
was ineligible for compel! ton, 
since its director, Claude 
Chabrol, was president of the 
jury. In Inspector Lavardin he 
creates a personable and ec- 
centric detective (Jean Poiret, 
the police inspector in Chab- 
rol’s previous film, Poulet au 
vinaigre) aiyf dispatches him 
to investigate a murder in 
another of the small, politely 
vicious provincial communi- 
ties which nobody describes 
better. The charm of the film 
is its reversal of the conven- 
tional morality of the detec- 
tive story with its traditional 
vindication of the innocent. 
The autocratic Lavardin 
metes out reward and punish - 1 
mem according to his own 
sentiments, preferring to in- 
criminate a bad person who 
did not commit the crime lhan 
the good one who did. 

• A rare and classic Woolrich 
adaptation, Robert Siodmak’s 
Phantom Lady, can be seen in

It is ironic that the most 
carefully.researched and beau- 
tifully detailed staging of 
Monteverdi’s Orfeo ever seen 
in London should be present- 
ed in an arena which is, 
perhaps, 50 times larger than 
the intimate Mantuan court 
surroundings of the opera’s 
1607 premiftre. But even this 
irony was turned into triumph 
by Kay Lawrence and Roger 
Nonington, joint directors of 
the Early Ojiera Project, which 
mounted this seminal produc- 
tion (first seen at the 1984 
Maggio Musicale). 

The celebrated opening toc- 
cata, for instance, sounded not 
from the arena, but from a 
procession of instrumentalists 
(in striking maroon renais- 
sance costumes) wend jng their 
way around the corridor be- 
hind the stalls boxes. First 
came the sackbuis and Cor- 
nells; from the other direction 
the strings and recorders en- 
tered. Meeting up with the 
battery of conti nuo instru- 
ments, they formed two tonal- 
ly contrasted ensembles on 
either side of the stage, and the 
Prologue began. Later, the 
hall’s vast spaces were used to 
excellent effect to enhance 
Monteverdi’s echo effects. 

But this happy adaptation 
(which also included bringing 
much of the action forward 
out of Terence Emery’s ele- 
gant, pillared set) was only to 
be expected from two produc- 
ers who had already lavished, 
so much ingenuity on this first 
great opera. The staging possi- 
bly represents one of the most 
important advances _ in^ toe 
quest for “authenticity for 
years, because at last it seems 
that all the manifold arts or 
the early baroque opera per- 
former - gesture, dance, cos- 
tumes and even lighting — are 


concern for historical accura- 
cy as singers and players had 
hitherto devoted solely to the 
musical notation. 

What is most exciting, how- 
ever, is that the result is so 
entertaining and dramatically 
credible. Previous experiences 
of baroque choreography in 
action had sometimes left me 
baffled and somewhat embar- 
rassed; here the shepherds’ 
dances were done with a grace 
and lack of fussiness that was 
irresistible. More arresting 
still were the superbly execut- 
ed group mimes: the poses 
struck by the body-stockinged 
dead souls solemnly ferried 
across the Styx while Qrfco 
delivered “Possrme spirto”, 
for example. One could ques- 
tion only whether toe drama 
was too understated in some 
scenes. 

Even without a conductor 
the rapport between singers 
and the superbly stylish and 
often virtu osic London Ba- 
roque Players was generally 
exemplary. Occasionally toe 
chorus singing lacked incisive- 
ness, but it was refreshing to 
hear the many small solos so 
weir differentiated by per- 
formers who placed greater 
emphasis on tonal beauty and 
crystalline clarity than on 
power. . 

But dominating all, of 
course, was Guy de Mey’s 
Orfeo. Initially unconvinced 
by his non-heroic, rather fine- 
ly-chiselled style in toe pasto- 
ral scenes, 1 was impressed by 
the way his reactions to the 
messenger’s tragic news 
seemed to splinter away into 
nothing - aptly reflecting the 
disintegration of this whole 
Arcadian playground — and 
utterly convinced by his tech- 
nical control and artistry in 
“Possente spirto". The com- 
pleteness of his performance — 
musically and physically - 
epitomized this production s 
virtues.

Howe appeals 
to Europe on 
ANC meeting 

From Jonathan Braude, Brussels 


Sir Geoffrey Howe, ihe 
Foreign Secretary, yesterday 
made an informal appeal to 
European Community na- 
tions to help persuade rcpre-. 
sen ra lives of the African 
National Congress (AND to 
meet him, according to diplo- 
matic sources. 

His request, made during a 
meeting of European Commu- 
nity foreign ministers, follows 
the public refusal of ANC 
leaders to meet him during his 
visit to South Africa next 
week. It was immediately 
picked up by the Portuguese 
Foreign Minister. Senhor Pe- 
dro Pires de Miranda, who 
offered his good offices. 

Mrs Lynda Chalker, the 
Foreign Office minister, said 
later that the opportunities for 
meeting the ANC were “very 
much open”. 

The Portuguese have made 
it clear that they are keen to 
play a mediating role, and a 
senior Portuguese Foreign 
Ministry official spent much 
of last week in Angola and 
Mozambique preparing con- 


tacts with black African 
groups. 

But Sir Geoffrey was criti- 
cized by a number of ministers 
for what, Mr Peter Bany, the 
Irish Foreign Minister, de- 
scribed as the “unclear 
signals,” given Tty the Govern- 
ment on the issue of sanctions. 1 
Mr Bany said he hoped the 
Foreign Secretary would tell 
President Botha that 
“sanctions 1 ' were very much 
on the table. 

He also wanted that mes- 
sage conveyed to the leaders of 
the frontline states because 
there was a danger that the 
European Community would 
lose credibility in Africa. It 
was up to Sir Geoffrey to 
restore confidence, he said. 

Despite the criticism, min- 
isters confirmed their com- 
mitment to Sir Geoffrey’s 
mission on behalf of the EEC. 

Sir Geoffrey said after the 
meeting that he was leaving 
for South Africa “strength- 
ened and heartened by the 
knowledge that I am acting as 
the representative of the Euro- 
pean Community and not just 
as British Foreign Secretary.” 


Maxwell has £2m bill 
for boycott countries 


Continued from page 1 

Maxwell said that others were 
thinking of doing so. 

“These countries will re- 
ceive a bill of £2 million as a 
cancellation fee. You must hit 
them in the pocket.” he said. 

The account will be divided 
on a pro rata basis and would 
depend on the size of the 
team. 

Computers in Edinburgh 
were now calculating the costs. 
He addedL'“I am a little fed up 
at being on the receiving end 
of all this.” 

Mr Maxwell said he had 
spoken to Mr Malcolm 
Rifktnd. the Secretary of State 
for Scotland, about the poten- 
tial damage. 

“I will not hesitate to send a 
bill to HM Government But 
let us not be facetious. These

be extra £2.5 bn 

By Nicholas Wood, BlllillcalR®P ortH, 

Mr Kenneth Baker, Secret 
tary of Slate for Education, 
win face bis first big polmcal 
test later this week wtoen 
Labour-led local authorities 
unveil details of their radical 
new package covering teach- 
ers’ pay and conditions. 

The price of a lasting pea ix 
in the country’s classrooms is 
likdy to be fer abo ve the £1 .25 
billion spread over four years 
which was promised by: Sir 
Keith Joseph, his predecessor. 

Jn return fra- watertight 
a gre ements covering teachers’ 
working hours; job contracts, 
out-of-hours duties, standing, 
m for absent colleagues and 
appraisal of perfornaance, Mr 
Baker is likely to fece_ .a 
demand fbr some £2.5 billion, 
of extra taxpayers’ money. ■ 

His room fbr manoeuvre is 
likdy to be further limited if, 
as seems likely, the councils, 
anti the two big. unions - the- 
National Union of Teachers 
and the National Association 
of Schoolroasters/Union of. 

Women Teachers - reach 
agreement on the package at a 
two-day conference in Coven-, 
try Starting on Friday. 

They will be able to argue 
with some justification that 
they have fulfilled Sir Keith's 
insistence on an affordable, 
and educationally acceptable 


in- their case to: the 

Government Y 

Mr Baker will find this 
much harder to resist than Sir 
Keith who, in.the lS monms 
of strikes, could point to 
divisions between the unions; 
and differences between, them 
and their employers. ' ' v. 

But if he can wringtheexirtL 
money out of the Treasury.he 
will score a notable potracal 
victory. • i - 

Yesterday the employer? . 
meeting hi London - agreed the • 
terms they will put to. the 
unions on Friday. . . 

Mr John Prarman, their 
leader, said the price tag; was 
“substantially above” the- 
£1-25. billion but refused to: 
confirm or deny repqrts that 
he was ready to offer twice 
thatfigure. ' ’■ T., "... ; 

He described the package, 
which will cover salary levels, 
promotion structure;' con- 
tracts and conditions tif ser- 
vice, job appraisal and futnrd 
negotiating machinery, - as 
“radical and coherenf*-. r :

The sharp rise is attributed 
to a catching up in purchases 
of summer clothing and foot- 
wear, postponed, from May 
because of the poor weather. 
In addition, many retailers, 
particularly outside London, 
started their summer sales 
earlier than usual. 

The index of sales volume 
last month, 122 (1980 =100) 
was 53 per cent up on a year 
earlier. The previous peak, 
11 9.8, was recorded in March. 
The latest figures support the 
view that the underlying retail 
sales trend has been upwards 
this year. 

Sales in the first quarter 
were 12 per <xnt up on the 
previous quarter; in the sec- 
ond quarter they rose by 1.7 
per cent, to 4.5 per cent above 
their level in the second 
quarter of last year. 

The average weekly value of 
sales last month was £1.74 
billion compared with £ 1.68 
billion in May. The total of 
retail spending in the five- 
week June statistical period 
was £8.69 billion. 


The Department of Trade 
and Industry said that sales 
were strong in all sectors last 
month. 

The official series for retail 
sales has been criticized in 
recent months for presenting a 
picture of trading patterns 
markedly different from that 
experienced by many retailers. 
However, officials defended 
the figures as more accurate 
than those produced by rival, 
private surveys. 

Department of Trade and 
Industry statistics are pro- 
duced from a sample of 3.000 
retailers, covering half of all 
retail turnover. 

There was scepticism about 
the June figures from one 
leading retailer, Mr Geoffrey 
Maitland Smith, chairman 
and chief executive of Seats. 
Sears* interests range from 
department stores like 
Selfridges and the provincial 
Lewis's chain to footwear 
outlets, car sales and 
housebuilding. 

He said: "June sales were 
much better than the month 
before and July is maintaining 
the June levels.' But it is not as 
good as we would like it to be. 
A lot of the increase in June 
came from sales at lower profit 
margins." 

But car orders for the new 


August prefix are building up. 
strongly and spending on new 
homes is still soaring, he 
added. 

The late emergence ofbener 
weather in June was a saviour 
for many retailers who had 
feared the bulk of summer 
stock would have to be cleared 
during the July sales, said the 
Retail Consortium, trade 
body for most retailers. 

Sales of summer clothes and 
footwear leapt as the good 
weather came along "just in 
time," the consortium said. 

Food safes were up, espe- 
cially those of fresh foods 
which carry the better profit 
margins. Wine sales were well 
up and sales of garden-related 
products, from furniture to 
barbecues, rose. 

Other factors in the June 
boom were the first effects of 
the decrease in mortgage inter- 
est rates, the rise in disposable 
income and the growth in 
credit sales, the consortium 
said. 

Although some retailers 
started their sales during the 
second half of June, the main 
effect of the sales is expected 
to be felt this month, which 
should keep sales buoyant, the 
consortium said, ft is forecast- 
ing high sales for the rest of the 
year, and says overall sales 
growth could reach 4 per cent 


Shipyard jobs go 
despite big order 

By Edward Townsend, Industrial Correspondent 


The state-owned British 
Shipbuilders yesterday reaf- 
firmed its decision to axe 
3,495-jobs within- the- next 
eight, months,' despite ^ winning 
a.-£90ra mittion .order from , 
Dcnmarirfor 24 ferries. 

: Mr’ ’EbOip Hares, the BS 
chairmaiir^saxd' that the re- 
structuring of the lossmaking 
corporation ' would continue. 
While the order would pro- 
vide three years'^ 'worir Tor 
Tyneside "Shipyards it would 
make no difference to the 
redundancy programme. 

The Danish contract has 
boosted the BS order book for 
the first four months of the 
financial year to almost 
89,000 compensated gross 
to tines (cgt). ns best level for 
more than a. year. Orders for 
the whole of the last financial 
year totalled 23.000 cgL 

This will be reflected in the 
1985-86 financial results to be 
announced on Friday, which 


will show a loss of about £100 
million. 

-The Danish contract, nego- 
tiated with a number of Co- 
penhagen investors Jed by the 
company V R Shipping, will 
provide work at Austin & 
Pickersgfil and Sunderland 
Shipbuilders, 

The . news was leaked last 
week in advance of a visit to 
the. North-east yesterday by 
Lord Young of Graffham, the 
Secretary of State for Employ- 
ment. and Mr Peter Morrison, 
the Industry Minister 

Mr George Parker, manag- 
ing director of North East 
Shipbuilders, said the 925 jobs 
due to go at the company's 
yards could not be saved, but 
he said that if more orders 
came to Sunderland some of 
the workers could be re-hired. 

The new order brings the BS 
order book half way towards 
achieving its 1986-87 target of 
189,000 cgt of business. 


THF pays 
£l90m 
for hotels 

By Derek Harris 
Indnstrial Editor 
Trusihousc Forte. Britain's 
biggest hotel operator, has 
paid £ 1 90 million for the hotel 
and restaurant business of the 
Imperial Group in its first big 
sale since Imperial was taken 
overby Hanson Trust 
The sale includes 29 Anchor 
Hotels, the Imperial Inns out- 
lets, -the 61 Happy Eater 
roadside reiaurants and five 
Welcome ■ Break motorway 
service areas. Excluded are 
nearly 1,400 managed public 
houses linked with the Cour- 
age brewing subsidiary. 

The deal was in the best 
interests of Imperial and was 
better than "many other 
approaches." said Lord Han- 
son. chairman of Hanson 
Trust 

The question of a Monopo-

inquiry arises because THF is 
already the largest operator of 
motorway services.

James Sherwood: suspicions about pre-saJe position (Photograph: Harry Kerr) 

Sealink will claim £100m 
to pay for Channel losses 


Sealink, the Channel ferry 1 
operator, is to seek compensa- 
tion of np to £100 million from 
the Government to cover re- 
dundancy costs and asset 
write-offs resulting from the 
loss of business to the planned 
Channel tunnel. 

Mr James Sherwood, presi- 
dent of Sea Containers which 
owns Sealink. also claimed 
yesterday he was "sespidons" 
that the Government might 
already have had an agree- 
ment with France over a future 
Channel link when he bought 
Sealink from British Rail for 
£66 million two years ago. 

Mr Sherwood said the ques- 
tion of compensation would be 
raised by the ferry companies 
when they begin giving evi- 
dence today to the Select 
Committee of MPs consider- 
ing the tunnel bill. 

Sealink estimates that the 
redundancy costs of laying off 
up to 4,000 of its 4300 staff 
will be between £30 millra 
and £50 million. A further 
substantial sum - perhaps as 
nmch as £50 million — will 
have to be written off to cover 
the premature retirement of 
port and ferry assets. 

The companies will tell the 
Select Committee that they 


By Teresa Poole 

should be allowed to integrate 
their services in preparation 
for the tunnel link. At the 
moment Office of Fair^ Trading 
restrictions forbitf*Vhem oper- 
ating together. 

Mr Charles Lenox- 
C nn yngham, Sealink chair- 
man and chief executive, said 
the companies would like to 
integrate their fleets as early 
as next year to provide tire 
same frequency of service with 
fewer ships. This would bring 
forward the programme of 
redundancies but would allow 
job losses to take place more 
gradually. In return the com- 
panies would not increase 
lares in real terms before the 
tunnel start-up in 1993. 

The ferries hope to operate 
five Large vessels on the Dover- 
Calais rente on a no-reserva- 
tion basis with departures 
every 30 minutes in peak 
periods. 

Mr Sherwood said the addi- 
tional income from operating a 
joint service would help the 
companies bear the redundan- 
cy costs. There would be a 
dear link between the lifting of 
the OFT restrictions and the 
compensation which would be . 
sought 

On his suspicions over the 


channel link agreement Mr 
Sherwood said.Tf an agree- 
ment had been made with 
France, even in principle, and 
they failed to disclose it to us, 
then Sealink would have a 
case against the British Gov- 
ernment for a reduction in the 
purchase price." In the pro- 
spectus for Sealink there was 
no mention of plans for a fixed 
link but within months of the 
sale the two countries were 
.working on guidelines for po- 
tential projects. 

Sealink has asked the De- 
partment of Transport and 
British Rail for a statement on 
the position at the time of its 
purchase of Sealink. Mr Sher- 
wood suggested that be would 
be willing to sue the Govern- 
ment over die question of 
damages. 

In a review of the Channel 
tunnel's financial viability 
published yesterday, Sealink 
claims that investment in 
Eurotunnel “could be disas- 
trous for shareholders and 
lenders." 

It also claims that the 
operating costs of Eurotunnel 
will exceed those of the surriv- 
ing short sea feny service 

It forecasts a net toss of 
£357 million in 1993. 


Blackwood calls for £12m 


By Richard Lander 

Blackwood Hodge, the 
earihmoving equipment 
group which unsucccsfully bid 
to save Ben ford Concrete 
from the BM Group last 
month, is raising £ 1 2.8 million 
through a rights issue. 

At the same lime Black- 
wood forecasts a resumption 
of dividends after four years, 
confirming its recovery since 
1983 when the group lost 
£ 20.6 million and came close 
to going out of business. 


About £2.4 million of the 
rights money is being used to 
buy the exclusive Australian 
franchise for the Italian 
Fiatatlis range of earihmoving 
equipment which Blackwood 
already distributes in Canada 
and Africa. The franchise is 
expected to make an operating 
profit of £400,000 a year. 

As a result of the issue. 
Blackwood's gearing ratio 
should now more than halve 
to 62 per cent. 

The company expects to pay 
a 0.5p dividend for the first 


half of 1986 and the same 
again at year end. Interim 
pretax profits are forecast to 
rise from £2.2 million to £2.7 
million on steady turnover of 
£107 million. 

Most .of the two-for-five 
rights issue at 39p is being 
underwritten, although the 
10.9 million share entitlement 
of the Sunley family is being . 
placed at 41. 9p a share. 

Despite the promise of re- 
sumed dividends, Blackwood 
shares fell 4‘Ap to 43 ‘/ 2 p. 


Beecham 
set to 
name 
new chief 

By Alison Eadie 

Lord Keith of Castleacre, 
chairman of Beecham Group 
since Sir Ronald Halstead was 
ousted in a boardroom coup 
last November, expects to 
announce the appointment of 
a new executive chairman and, 
four new non-executive direc- 
tors within the next three 
weeks. 

Lord Keith said at the 
company's annual meeting 
yesterday, that he would then 
resume bis former position of 
non-executive vice chairman 
until his retirement next July. 

A finance director would 
also be appointed to replace 
Mr Ted Bond, who is now in 
charge of cosmetics and home 
improvement products busi- 
nesses. 

Lord Keith spoke of im- 
provements on the trading 
front with the elimination of 
losses in Australia and diffi- 
culties in the toiletries busi- 
ness in Germany. 

An internal review of the 
company's portfolio of poten- 
tial pharmaceutical products 
has given grounds for opti- 
mism. but Lord Keith gave a 
warning that it may be some 
lime before their full commer- 
cial advantage would be real- 
ized. Beecham will be stepping

up expenditure on pharma- 
ceutical development to try to 
cut down the delays. 

The company has received a 
large number of inquiries for 
its home improvement prod- 
ucts business, including the 
Unibond and Copydex brand 
names, which were officially 
put up for sale last month. 

Other smaller disposals are 
in hand, in addition to the £12 
million worth announced two 
weeks ago. which should sub- 
stantially reduce the group's 
borrowings and improve the 
debt equity ratio. 

Trading profits in the first 
quarter this year are ahead of 
first quarter last year and 
ahead of internal budgets. 
Lord Keith said. He pointed 
particularly • to prescription 
medicine sales, which are well 
up in Europe and the United 
States, where the antibiotics 
Augmentin and Timentin are 
making good progress. 

The over-the-counter medi- 
cines market is also increasing 
in importance worldwide. 
Norrliff Thayer, the American 
medicines acquisition bought 
in January, will make a posi- 
tive contribution to group 
earnings in the* first half. Lord 
Keith said.

‘Too quick expansion 9 
blamed for CASE loss 

By Our City Staff 

CASE Group, supplier of v Over-ambitious expansion 


data communications sys- 
tems, yesterday reported pre- 
tax Josses of £14.7 million for 
the year to March 31, com- 
pared with profits of £10.5 
million the previous year. 

The results, which had been 
wen heralded by the company, 
pushed the shares down 5p to 
64p compared with 332p 18 
months ago when CASE was 
one of the City's favoured 
growth stocks. Turnover was 
unchanged at £95 million and 
there is no final dividend. 

Mr Peter Burton, managing 
director, said: "It is a matter of 
record that we did not do a 
good business management 
job last year. Undoubtedly we 
did, try to do too much too 
quickly.” 


in North America led to losses 
of £1 9 million as the expected 
sales growth failed to 
materialize. 

The company is now con- 
sidering the appointment of 
three additional main board 
directors, including a separate 
chief executive to head the 
British operations and an 
executive finance and market- 
ing director. 

Mr Burton added: "We 
would like to bring a little 
more business expertise onto 
the board and are talking to 
one or two people quite well 
known in the industry with a 
view to appointing another 
non-executive director.”

Gold to silver 
ratio leaps 
to record 70:1 

The ratio of gold to silver 
prices reached a post-war 
record of more than 70 on the 
bullion markets yesterday as 
gold touched its highest levels 
in Europe for almost six 
months and silver remained 
in the doldrums on Swiss 
selling 

Gold traded at around $3S5 
an ounce, retaining most ofj 
the sharp gains recorded in 
New York on Friday, while 
silver slipped about 9 cents to 
S5 an ounce, close to its four- 
year low. 

Dealers say the normal 
historic ratio between gold 
and silver is 30 or 40 to I, but 
it fell to 15 in 1980

New White House report 
will predict 3.5% growth 


From Baxley Morris, Washington 


White Hoose officials are 
reacting strongly to sta temen ts 
by private economists that the 
US economy is “stagnant” 
“dead in the wafer”, and 
“going nowhere”. 

One Administration spokes- 
man, attempting to dampes 
fears, of another global reces- 
sion, said yesterday that the 
stagnant US economy will 
rebound in the second half, 
producing stronger growth 
than the IS per cent to 3 per 
cent range predicted by the US 
Federal Reserve Board. 

The Administration’s 
counter-attack came as finan- 
cial markets waited anxiously 


quarter growth n a tion a l prod- 
uct figures which are expected 
to show anaemic growth of 
between 1 and 2 per cent 
In addition, there were new 
reports from Europe of an 
unexpected slowdown dtraag 
the first Ipilf of the year In the 


three largest indnstrial econo- 
mies, the Unfted States, Japan 
and West Germany, which ‘ 
could have a severe impact on 
debtor nations and the devel- 
oping world. 

“IVople are so impatient. ^ 
We are not doing that badly 
but it takes time for lower o3 
prices, the lower dollar, and 
tower interest rates to show 
up,” said a high level official 
involved in the Admin- 
istration's mid-year economic 
review to be releasedT next 
month. 

. He conceded that the earlier 
forecast of 4 per cent growth 

would be lowered. But the new 

forecast will be closer to the* 
3.5 per cent range, he said. 

Mr Pul Vofeker, chairman 
of the US Federal Reserve 
Board, is scheduled to address 
Congress tomorrow on the 
Federal Bank's mid-year re- 
port and die prospects for 
jp-owtb in the second hall. 


The Federal Reserve's re- 
port issued last Friday gave 
warning of uncertainties in the 
economy which clouded the 
growth picture. It predicted a 
lower range of growth this year 
of bo more -than 3 per cent, 
down from earlier projections 
just six months ago of up to 3i> 
per cent growth in 1986. 

But overall, the report was 
relatively optimistic, indicat- 
ing a stronger second-half 
p e r form ance and continuing 
low inflation in the 2V4 per cent 
to 2 % per cent range. 

At the same time, the Feder- 
al Reserve -report indica t ed 
that the central bank, which 
has ignored its own money 
supply targets ths year, in- 
tends to stay with an accom- 
modating monetary policy 
designed to avoid a recession. 

The report echoed, however, 
the appeal of high level US 
officials for more growth in 
Japan and West Germany.

THE TIMES TUESDAY JULY 22 1986 


WALL STREET 


Small gain for Dow 


New York (Agencies) - 
Well Street shares dosed 
narrowly mixed in cautious 
trading yesterday, ahead of 
the release of key economic 
figures today. 

Investors remained con- 
fused over mixed signals era 
the state, of US business and 
the direction of the market in 
the aftermath of the big July 
sell-off. 

The Dow Jones industrial 
average closed op 1-13 points 
at 1,779.11. t j 

Declining issues led gaining 

issues by an eight to seven 
margin, on a volume 01 luo 
million shares traded. 

Analysts noted that the 
Federal Reserve Board's rela- 
tively optimistic second-half 
outlook last Friday calmed 


fears of a recession, 
an earlier bearish n „ 
view from Merrill Lynch. 

The transportation average 
gained 6.87 points to dose at 
72038, while utilities added 
3.13 points to 203J>1 and 
stocks at 68831 pat on 031 
points. 

Elsewhere, the Standard 
and Poms 100 index shed 0.63 
poults to dose at 22333 and 
the S and P composite lost 
0.14 points to end the day at 
23632. 

The Treasury market had a 
featureless, and sparsely trad- 
ed session, little c ha n ged from 
last week's dosing levels. 

Activity stalled as many 
investors had already estab- 
lished positions waiting for 
today’s economic figures.

( COMMODITIES REVIEW 

Spoonfuls of cheer 
for cocoa pact 


Two cheers for the pew 
international, cocoa agree- 
ment To the great surprise of 
commodities commentators 
(This column included) and 
the futures markets, 60 lead- 
ing cocoa producing and con- 
suming countries in the 
International Cocoa. Organi- 
zation hammered out a work- 
able pact with economic 
provisions to take effect from 
October !. 

The agreement in Geneva 
was noteworthy not only for 
the fact that it was reached, 
but in the manner in which it 
was concluded and its novel 
and flexible provisions. The 
Ivoiy Coast, the world’s larg- 
est producer, deserves the first 
and loudest cheer. 

Five months ago its dele- 
gates stormed out of an earlier 
round of negotiations, saying 
they would not be party to a 
pact that encouraged price 
speculation. 

In effect, Abidjan decided it 
would brave the chill winds of 
the free market and told its 
poorer fellow producers they 
would have to do the same. 

Whether the winds blowing 
through the cocoa market 
were more vicious than ex- 
pected or the political pressure 
from other African growers 
was growing unbearable, the 
Ivory Coast was back at the 
conference table when the 
latest talks started two weeks 
ago. 

Having got there, it decided 
to take thmgs-seriously. Abi- 
djan was undoubtedly instru- 
mental in lowering the 
producers’ proposed interven- 
tion midpoint from i 15 cents 
a lb to 103 cents. The consum- 
ers, who were seeking a 100 
cent midpoint, were able to 
move three cents with mini- 
mal loss of lace. 


This means the buffer stock 
manager can start buying co- 
coa to support the price at 88 
cents a lb, and start selling it at 
1 18 cents. 

What makes the agreed 
price, band more interesting is 
that it is flexible, with various 
adjustment formulas to move 
it .up or down in response to 
events and that it is priced in 
the IMF's Special Drawing 
Right (SDR) equivalent of the 
dollar rates. 

This feature will reduce 
exchange rate volatility for 
consumers and loosen the 
yoke of the “Yankee dollar” 
for the producers. The SDR 
fits nicely philosophically in a 
commodity agreement Like 
the pact itself, it is a concept 
designed to promote world- 
wide economic stability and 
reduce conflict 

The second cheer must be 
for the United Nations Con- 
ference on Trade and Devel- 
opment (Unctad), the 
grandparent of the cocoa pact 
and most other international 
commodity agreements. 

More than a year ago, 
Unctad issued a study on the 
efficacy of commodity agree- 
ments which admitted that’ 
many pacts had had little 
success in stabilizing prices or 
helping developing countries 
to stand on their own two feet.' 

Events since then can only 
serve to have deepened the 
gloom at Unctad on its hopes 
for stabilizing commodity 
prices. 

Most markets have been 
firmly locked in a bear trend, 
notably the tin market, where 
the international pact col- 
lapsed spectacularly last Octo- 
ber in a mountain of debt, 
which was soon covered in a 
thick layer of law suits. 

For Unctad the cocoa 


agreement must be a shot in 
the arm of immeasurable pro- 
portions. 

However, like E M Forster 
in his assessment of democra- 
cy, it is not possible to raise 
the third cheer for the success- 
ful cocoa talks. The reason.is 
that they have done nothing to 
persuade the United. States, 
the world's biggest cocoa im- 
porter. that there is any point 
in signing the pact 

Although the diplomatic re- 
ports on the agreement are 
stiU being studied in Washing- 
ton, it seems most unlikely 
that they will in anyway'alter 
the Reagan Administration's 
ideological-opposition to com- 
modities pacts. 

This is a great shame. An 
international economic agree- 
ment without the United 
States is aJrin to a cricket 
world cup where the West 
Indies is not playing. Those 
taking part might find the 
excercise useful, but it would 
be be far more meaningful if 
the most powerful team 
turned up. 

In the case of cocoa, there is 
a strong argument for Wash- 
ington attending the party. 
The talks in Geneva displayed 
a tight-blue Reaganite tinge; 
with Third World producers 
swallowing their pride and 
agreeing to a pact that is 
closely in line with free market 
prices, at present about 90 
centsalb. 

On the other side, consum- 
ing countries pressed home 
their, advantage without tight- 
ening the screws too.paiufoUy. 
It was a rare display of a 
laudable American ideal — 
enlightened self-interest — 
which deserves the enthusias- 
tic backing of its creator.

Four nations plan joint SE 


Financial experts meet in 
Stockholm in September to 
plan a “Nordic bourse." in 
which the stock exchanges of 
Sweden, Norway, Denmark 
and Finland wilt function as 
one. 

Political, economic and cul- 
tural affinities are such that 
there seems no reason the 
region should not develop into 
a single capital • market Capi- 


From Tony Samstag, Oslo 

lal flow would increase to each 
country while international 
competitors would face more 
disadvantages. 

Similar plans, though less 
advanced, fora common secu- 
rities market in the European 
Community have lent urgency 
to the Nordic scheme. 
Through Danish participation 
-ir the unified stock exchange 
the Nordic.non-EEC countries 


would gain access to the much 
larger supra-national bourse 
in Brussels. 

The Swedes, with their vig- 
orous economy and insatiable 
appetite for venture capital, 
are the most enthusiastic 
about ihe Nordic bourse and 
have most to gain from it 
initially.. But .Oslo. 
Capenhagen and Helsinki are 
also in 1 favour.

Benefits in store 





Asda-MFI has under- 
performed ihe stores index 
since the merger in April last 
year. Yesterday’s results 
showing taxable profits for 
the year up 52 percent, after 
prom sharing, were in tine 
with expectations but will not 
be enough to galvanize the 
shares into outperformance. 

The company was in a state 
of transition last year, as it 
revamped the Asda stores 
and moved into own-label 
products, moved into lighting 
and household textiles in 
MF1 stores and pursued a 
heavy programme of store 
openings across the group. 

The changes are stfll under- 
way and the benefits are not 
expected to come through 


strongly until next year: 
More than half the 


£5 


million non-recurring costs of 
the move to own label were 
absorbed last year and the 
rest will come this year. 

A total of 700 lines have 
been introduced so far and 
Asda expects to have 2^00 
lines on store shelves by 
December next year, or 35 
per cent of grocery items. The 

grass margin benefit can be as 

much as 50 per cent depend- 
ing on the product 

Operating margins suffered 
at Asda, MF1 and Allied 
Carpets, although Asda in 
particular recovered ground 
in the second half. The 
jqmrasing move to fresh 
foods should assist the recov- 
ery.. 

The- store opening, pro- 
gramme will continue strong- 
ly this year with eight. Asda ; 
stores opening against a- net 
three last year, 10 MFI stores 
against a net nine and 13 
Allied stores against a net H 
Allied is also moving to out- 
of-town sites. 

More cash will be con- 
sumed as capital spending 
rises to around £175 million- 
compared with £156 million. 

The capitalization of inter- 
est. however, introduced last .. 
year reduced the potential, 
interest bill by £7.6 million 
before tax relief 
’Pretax profits- this year 
should come out around £184 
million after profit sharing. 
The tax charge should be 
about 33 per cent after an 
exceptionally -Tow 30.9 per 
cent last year. 

The prospective p/e ratio, 
on- the shares down- 4p~at\ 
142p, is a wait-and-see 13. 

The shares have been stuck • 


in a band between ! 30p and 
160p all year and show no 
immediate signs of breaking 
out into higher ground. 

Arlen 

The adage of what goes up 
must come, down could have, 
been penned for the ' former 
stock market high-flyer 
Alien. 

The maker of light fitments 
touched 380p, on .expecta- 
tions of bumper business for 
its revolutionary Pulsestarter 
gadget to power fluorescent 
strip lighting, before plum- 
meting to 30p when sales 
failed to take off. ' 

But now under the prag- 
matic leadership of the chair- 
man. Leslie Hancock, the 
compand appears to have 
turned the comer on the dark 
days of the last two years. 

For the year just ended 
trading profits were up by 56 
■per cent from .£252,7(X) to 
£393,700 leaving profits be- 
fore extraordinary charges at 
£151,000, against £5,500. 
Earnings per share advanced 
to 2.55p, compared with 
0.09p and on a fully-diluted 
basis are 3.72p, against 1 ,46p. 

The dramatic turn round 
has been achieved by ending 
the manufacturer of loss 
making and low-margin lines 
and relaunching the 
Pulsestarter which . now ac- 
counts for about 15 per cent 
of sales. - 

Arlen has bou ght th e ;G> 
iombia Group supplying ser- 
vices for the electronic 
industries. The high - margin 
business is already showiitg a 
sales growth of 40 per cent 
and- the new-Iook group 
should comfortably reach 
profits of about £750,000 in 
the present year with a return 
to the dividend lisL 

The Arlen team is looking 
for more acquisitions and is 
much more confident now 
that it has shrugged off the tag 
of being a -one-projiuc? 
company. ; - 

The shares, now changing 
hands at 88p, are not likely to 
witness the same excitement 
of the Pulsestarter days but 
the ride should be a lot more 
comfortable. * 

CASE Group 

A disaster well-heralded is 
still a disaster. Bui over the 1 
past six -months the .City has _ 
beeh kept'w£U informed by * 
CASE -as crises followed hic- 


coughs. Yesterday the shares 
slipped just 5p to 64p, despite 
the plummet from pretax 
profits of £10-5 mfifion to 
losses of £14.7 milta m-J 
fi nding £2 million of cxcejK 
dona] property profits;-How 
are the mighty Men. After 
soaring to 332p at one stage, 

- the shares are now bade at fefc 
level of three years aga 

The main culprit was ovtt- 
ambitious expansion in the 
United States as the company, 
reared up for anticipated' 
$100 million worth of ship- 
ments; . pushing -group .safes 
and marketing costs up by a 
staggering £13 million to £31 
. mriUoit Sales did not reach, 
even half that level and North 
America tuned-'. in-, a. £19 
million loss compared with 
£3 million profits the preyi- 

• ous year. . . : ' ' 

After increasing its staff by. 

. half, CASE spent ihe Taner 
: part of the year, making an 
equal number of redundaii- 
cies, contributing to " festal 
redundancy costs (above the 
line) of £L million. i- - 

' Overall growth in the mar- 
ket for data commumcatioiw 
in the US was slower than' 
expected. But CASE was also 
caught by its prematnje.de- 
parture from commckfity 
products before the build-up 
of .direct . sales of higher 
margin networking' systems. 

The distribution and sup-:

Airports to 
develop 
spare land 

By Derek Harris 
Industrial Editor 

The British Airports Author- 
ity (BAA), due to be privatized 
early next year, is drawing up 
an audit of spare land at the 
seven airports under its con- 
trol, including Heathrow and 
Gaiwick, to prepare for a 
widespread drive into proper- 
ty and other developments. 

Sir Norman Payne, BAA 
chairman, said; “The flotation 
of BAA will allow us for the 
first time to look into the 
possibilities for developments 
on peripheral land. There are 
hundreds of acres of such 
land." 

There is new pressure to 
assess the prospers of using 
this landbank - because the 
BAA flotation could well be m 
the early spring now that gaps 
have appeared in tne 
Government’s privatization 
schedule after the removal of 
the. ordnance factories and 
water authorities. 

There is likely to be keen 
competition for sites which 
could accommodate 
superstores, low-rise industri- 
al parks and hotels, with 
Heathrow and Gatwick likely 
to attract interest for siting 
conference and exhibition 
halls. 

The BAA is also believed to 
be looking at the possibility of 
joint ventures in some of the 
developments - because its 
launch into the private sector 
means it could look at eventu- 
al diversifications with a 
strong airport link. 

But the authority’s main 
drive will clearly be in devel- 
oping its core airport business- 
es, especially its profitable 
retailing operations including - 
duty-free ' sales. Nor is its 
landbank expected to play as 
great a* role as similar but 
more extensive assets have for 
AB Ports whose stock valua- 
tion has leaped since privati- 
zation in 1983.

to 


wipe £4.4bn from shares 


By Michael Clark 


r-t 


^4 


Share pnces took another 
pounding yesterday with deal- 
ers still worried about the 
. recent gloomy economic news 
and ~ihe uncertain political 
outlotifc for the Government 

-Anot her £ 4.4 billion was 
wiped from the value of 
quoted shares as jobbers con- 
tinued to mark prices sharply 
kiwer.' That extends the total 
losses on share values during 
the past two trading sessions 
- to £»3 billion. The FT index 
of 30' shares ended the day 
19.1 points down at 1,276.3, 
while the broader-based FT- 
SE J00 extended its fall to 24.2 
points at 1,560.2. 

Despite the shake-out, turn- 
over was down to a trickle. 

• Sfcaxesof Rnras-Ander- 

adii,.the!Bhop-ffitiiigaiidfi- 
ttujiicnj services group, 
c«ithiBed tD lose ground yes- 
terday, easing lp to 68p. 
Kecenr *reakness stems from a 
large seller of about 
500,000 shares last week. 

With pretax profits for die 
year to next September set to 
dhnbfrom £940,000 to 
£15 mOtion, the shares look 
cheap. 

Dealers reported few sellers, 
with -most of the big fund 
managers content to watch 
from the sidelines. 

It looks as though some of 
the' jobbers may have picked 
Up stock at the wrong levels on 
the way down and there are 1 
now fears that a fierce bear 
squeeze may develop soon. 
Thcs could result in the techni- 
■ caL rally that many investors 
have been waiting for. 

; Gilts were also in the dol- 
drums. reflecting the weaker 
pouhdLBui prices closed above 
tbeir worst levels of the day, 
with losses of about £Vi com- 
pared with opening falls reach- 
ing -almost £1. 


Blue chips suffered double- 
. figure losses and there were 
also setbacks for stores and the 
building sectors. 

XCl slipped 2p to 987p 
ahead of its second-quarter 
figures on Thursday. Analysts 
are currently looking for pre- 
tax profits of £270 million, 
thus stretching the total, so far 
this year, to £474 million. This 
compares with £535 million 
for the same, period last year. 

The second quarter is nor- 
mally ICl’s strongest period 
and the oil price fall will have 
resulted in better margins. But 
it looks as though the agro- 
chemical and fertilizer divi- 
sions may have suffered as a 
result of the tough time farm- 
ers have been having. 

But. for the full year,, the 
market is looking for pretax 
profits of £960 million, against 
1985*8 £912 million. 

Home Counties Newspa- 
pers, publisher of weekly 
newspapers, leapt 45p to a 
peak of 238p after the compa- 
ny. announced that it had 
received an approach. The 
board was forced to make the 
announcement after the recent 
flurry of activity in the shares 
, over, the past few days. 

It says the talks with the 
mystery suitor are still at an 
early stage. But marketmen 
are convinced that rival

EMAP, with a 20 per cent 
stake in the company, is the 
bidder. 

At this level. Home Coun- 
ties is worth nearly £6 million, 
but there was little turnover 
with jobbers only prepared to 
make a market in 250 shares. 
Earlier this year, the price was 
trading at about 1 1 1 p. 

Trusthoose Forte, the hotel 
and leisure group, slipped 4p 
to )5lp, while still awaiting 
confirmation that it was about 
to snap up Anchor Hotels. 
Happy Eater restaurants and 
the Welcome Break motorway 
service station chain from 
Hanson Trust Hanson ac- 
quired the businesses follow- 
ing its bid for Imperial Group. 
THF is expected to pay about 
£200 million for the package.

COMMENT Kenneth Fleet 


Now what price the 
TSB flotation? 


With the FT-30 share index dropping 
another 19 points, the market is 
plainly in a jittery phase. There is a 
clutch of reasons why this should be 
so — ranging from unease about the 
rising tide of brood money in the 
system, to the buffeting of Mrs 
Thatcher — but they do not yet add up 
to an inesistible argument for taking 
to the lifeboats. The great bull market 
should have at least one last surge of 
life left in it. It is important for the 
British Gas flotation in the late 
autumn that it should. Nor would it 
harm the Trustee Savings Bank issue. 

The TSB is now confidently on 
course for a stock market flotation in 
mid-September, a prospect which 
should gladden the heart of every 
investor in the country. As the legal 
problems recently surmounted by the 
bank graphically demonstrated, the 
TSB is a unique institution and it is 
highly improbable that the City will 
see a flotation like this one again. 

The Law Lords, in their wisdom, 
decided that no one owns the TSB. 
That means, in effect, that no one 
owns the bank’s £800 million reserves 
— which in turns implies that the 
reserves will go to the bank’s future 
owners. The future owners w iU be 
anyone lucky enough to pick up shares 
when the doors open to receive what 
will surely be a deluge of applications 
for a stake in the TSB. 

In effect, they are being given a free 
handout It is hardly surprising that 
everyone from the Government to the 
City spivs expect the issue to go like a 
rocket. At the same time, the TSB is 


an ideal opportunity to promote wider 
share ownership and has the added 
advantage of being a well known 
institution which first-time and un- 
sophisticated investors should feel 
they can understand and trust. 

It provokes a curious problem of 
pricing, however, for the lead mer- 
chant bank, Lazard Brothers. In 
theory Lazands would be justified in 
thinking up any number it wanted. In 
practice there are constraints. One is 
that most bank shares trade at a 
discount to net asset value which 
should help the issuing house to pitch 
the TSB {nice within an appropriate 
range. Other obvious indicators for 
comparison are yields and p/e ratios. 

Lazards will no doubt consider the 
options and then use one or two of the 
comparison methods to find a level 
for the TSB. The problem is to decide 
which banks to compare with the 
TSB. 

The English clearers will no doubt 
be the basic yardstick, but direct 
comparison is impossible if only 
because the TSB has nowhere near the 
same international exposure as they 
do. In the end the Scottish clearers 
may prove a better point of compari- 
son. Beyond that, however. Sir John 
Read, chairman of TSB, insists that 
the pricing will be “competitive” to 
attract maximum numbers of depos- 
itors. It is hard to avoid the im- 
pression that there will be a strong 
element of the arbitrary in the way the 
final price is set which will owe more 
to “market feel” than the science of 
numbers. 


Language for the future 


The London Stock Exchange is gear- 
ing itself up for its autumn big bang 
largely to make the London time zone 
competitive with the Far East and 
New York in a global trading system. 
But as Lord Cockfield noted in a 
speech on the internal EEC market in 
financial services to the Trade Polity 
Research Centre last night* “It is 
remarkable that as yet no real 
European securities market exists.'* 

This is chiefly the fault of other 
European countries that fear their 
bourses could not take competition 
from the revitalized and recapitalized 
market now emerging in London. 
Indeed, the Stock Exchange is enthu- 
siastic about Community initiatives 
for exchange of information under the 
Inteibourse Data Information System 
(IDIS). 

Even within existing constraints, 
however, few have grasped the 
opportunities for London effectively 
to dominate the trading in inter- 
national European equities in the way 
it has done in the admittedly more 
global Eurobond market Some stock- 
brokers, such as Savory Milln, as well 
as jobbers and investment managers, 
made money out of the boom in 


European bourses, but the language 
barrier ensures that far more attention 
is paid to Australia, Hong Kong or 
Singapore, not to mention American 
equities. 

The opportuniy is shown in the 
Capital International analysis of 
world stock markets, which finds that 
the top 10 shares (typically the world 
companies) account for about half the 
modest capitalization of most Euro- 
pean exchanges and three quarters in 
Amsterdam. Even after the British 
Telecom flotation, the comparable 
proportion in Britain is a quarter. 

Undoubtedly, the big new trading 
companies set up for the big bang will 
eventually start worrying as much 
about annexing business in the top 
100 continental companies as they are 
now worried about losing business in 
British equities across the Atlantic. 
Most likely, however, such initiatives 
will come from outsiders such as 
Merrill Lynch and Nomura Securities 
or the overseas banks that have 
bought into the London Stock Ex- 
change. Foreign firms bringing an 
international approach to the equity 
market far outnumber the home 
teams with this perspective. 


‘7 don’t much care how you 
got in there. Binder old bean, 
but I do wonder why.” 

\ 



We all know that Sir Bernhard Binder was too 
substantial a figure to climb into the bottle. It must have 
been made around him. 

This, as he no doubt explained to RAshton Hamlyn, 
is deeply symbolic of our attitude to accountancy: 

You best get inside your client’s business by 
arriving early and staying put. 

Following in our founder* s footsteps, our East 
Anglian partners have spent some years in plastic bottles. 

We’ve helped the manufacturers grow from 20 
employees to 120; from one factory to two; and add a 
building-products subsidiary. 

During this time, we’ve done their auditing and 
accounting, naturally, and all the other things that 
major Chartered Accountants do. 

But we get a lot more personal than that. 
Because in our Private Company Services, 
corporate and personal matters are inevitably 
intertwined. 

We pay particular attention to share 
ownership and the retention of family controL 
We transfer capital into funds for children. 

\ \We help our clients write their wills. All sorts 
of things. 

One Mp had been so busily building 
his b usiness that when we found him at 
forty, with a wife and two kids, he had 
ppjflhpr pension nor life assurance. 

We swiftly fixed him up with both, 
of course. It’s surprising what funds you 
can generate by reducing taxable profits 
and replanning the ownership of company 
property. 

Perhaps we can arrange some 
profitable surprises for you. The coupon

Making 

deals 


Massive information link-up 


Stephen Johnson 


at a 


touch 


The information industry has vaulted 
into the news. The British computer 
group ICL forged two partnerships last 
week which will put it into the forefront 
of the industry, and 30 UK companies 
formed a joint venture to promote 
electronic publishing. 


The ICL partnerships not only repre- 
nt the intention of the group to offer a 


By Richard Sarson 


Whenever there is a currency 
crisis we are used to seeing on 
our television sets dealing 
rooms full of excited young 
men seated in front of rows of 
impressive computer screens, 
keyboards and telephone 
switchgear. 

The equipment controls the 
telephony so that the dealers 
can instantly call up a counter- 
party to deal with, and die 
screens present the dealer with 
prices and cross-rates. 

But from then on the dealer 
is on his own. He has to 


scribble out a dealing slip, to 
pass into the back office and 
has to rely on a junior human 
position-keeper to tell him 
whether he is short or long on 
his currencies, and whether be 
is up against his dealing limits. 

The junior does this by 
hand and is usually stroking 
to keep up with the fast- 
thinking dealer. If either of 
them makes a mistake it can 
take days, and sometimes 
thousands of pounds, to put 
right. 

Today's dealing rooms are 
not as high-tech as they look. 
A system called Dealer's 
Choice, by International 
Banking Systems, hopes to 
improve on this. There are no 
keyboards in sight — deals are 
made by touching certain 
areas of a touch-sensitive 
computer screen. 

It will then automatically 
calculate the dealer's position. 
Another part of the screen 
shows the fluctuating curren- 
cies. changing colour for 10 
seconds after a change, green 
for up. red for down. 

IBS says h chose the touch 
method because foreign ex- 
change dealers, a rather spe- 
cial breed it says, tend to reject 
keyboards. They like to keep 
their eyes on the screen and 
insist on seeing only what they 
need to at any point in the 
process. 

So, IBS, advised by John 
Marino, an American who 
studied software ergonomics 
at MIT. has filtered out any 
extraneous data from the 
screens. A dealer in Japanese 
yen only has yen rates in front 
of him — bis set of screens 
being tailored for him alone. If 


sent the intention of the group to offer a 
comprehensive range of services to 
computer users but are a major diversifi- 
cation for th e company. Like all corpora- 
tions trying to compete in the 
manufacturing sector against the chal- 
lenge from the Pacific Basin, particularly 
developing economies such as South 
Korea's, ICL has had to change its 
profile. 

Added value is the order of the day. A 
highly professional workforce which 
designs and manufactures bespoke sys- 
tems — basic models with customer 
enhancements — software, control and 
networking, is to be the hallmark of the 
new ICL. Substantial revenue will accrue 
from these professional services. At least 
that is the theory. 

JCL's first partnership is meant to 
open new fields to the computer group. It 
has joined forces with Cable & Wireless, 
the parent of the rival telephone operator 
Mercury, to form an international data 

management network. 

Peter Bonfield. chairman and manag- 
ing director of ICL. says: “We are 
unmatched in products, solutions and 
services. Now we are concentrating on 
bringing the whole operation out into the 
international arena. The venture with 
Cable & Wireless will give us a foothold 
in some major business in the UK. ICL 
will primarily provide sales and market- 
ing expertise, while Mercury's contribu- 


tion will be in the role of national 
network carrier". 

• In theory the Cable & Wireless 
partnership makes perfect sense. Two 
British companies with international 
links join forces to compete in informa- 
tion technology (IT) against the on- 
slaught of the Japanese and the 
Americans. Will the practice be 
different? 

Cable & Wireless has had difficulties 
in making substantial inroads in the 
United States, despite the deregulation 
of AT&T. Through its second partner- 
ship. ICL is attempting to get a foothold 
in the American market.

openings in the US. 




Non-network information was also in 
the news last week. Thirty of Britain's 
top publishers formed a company — 
Publishers' Databases - to exploit 
electronic publishing. Titles will be 
published on compact disc and other 
high technology storage devices for those 
clients who have no need or desire to be

Its new partner is GEISCO, a division 
of General Electric of the US, which has 
had extensive experience both in Europe 
and the United States in offering data 
network services. The group is already 
providing an information service to the 
European motor trade. 


The project called Knowledge Ware- 
house. will have a working budget of 
£210,000 for its first year, with 25 per 
cent coming from the Department of 
Trade and Industry and a similar 
amount from the British Library. In its 
first year the project will collect from 
publishers up to 200 works — now held 
electronically — on the pilot subject 
maritime commerce and law: research ■ 
the market for such databases; design the !

panying software and solve the technical,

new knowledge works aimed at new 
markets. The data - books, journals and 
reference materials already held in

from many different publishers to form 
the Knowledge Warehouse. The material 
will not be held as an on-line database.”

By Frank Brown 
A tiny software firm in Edin- 
burgh has developed a system 
for designing silicon dips 
which could have far-reaching 
effects on the world's electron- 
ics industries, and on electron- 
ic equipment generally. 

The system, called ASE 
(Application Specific Engine), 
enables electronic engineers 
with no previous experience of 
designing integrated circuits, 
to design computer chips for 
particular applications using a 
process called CMOS and to 
carry out the entire design 
process on a personal 
computer. 

A chip for a specific purpose 
can be designed in a few hoars 
reducing overall development 
times from a usual six to nine 
months to a few weeks. 

CMOS is a chip production 
process which produces de- 
vices that are extremely com- 
plex — they can contain many 
thousands of logic circuits — 
and have a low power con- 
sumption. Thus they are wide- 
ly used in all manner of 
electronics equipment 

Lattice Logic, the designers 
of ASE, claims two significant 
firsts for the system — first to 
cover the entire chip design 
process and the first to cost 


less than £20,000, including 
hardware and software. 


separately for existing PC-AT 
users. 


Using tiie program the engi- 
neer can also choose which of 
the various chip manufactur- 
ers CMOS processes is the 
best for a design and produce 
the manufacturing information 
for that process. 


Existing chip design sys- 
tems do not have this manufac- 
turing evaluation ability and 
earlier this year semi-conduc- 
tor experts were predicting 
that such facilities would not 
be available for another two 
years. 

Thus ASE caused some- 
thing of a sensation when it 
was launched at an American 
conference earlier this month. 
“People at the show did not 
believe our claims at first, but 
they soon became enthusiastic 
and we received a high volume 
of inquiries and a number of 
orders," said Lattice Logic's 
managing director, Alan 
Bennett. 

One big attraction of ASE is 
that the work station is IBM 
PC-AT compatible. The 
system's software, called 
Chips mith, will ran on any 
IBM or IBM-compatible PC- 
AT fitted with a special pro- 
cessor board, and is available 


So far custom chip design 
has only been economically 
viable for manu f act ure rs of 
mass production goods soch as 
washing machines, that is, 
applications involving high 
volumes of chips. 

Custom chip design offers 
the advantage of cramming 
thousands of purpose-de- 
signed rirq ii t s on a chip which 
greatly reduces the number of 
individual components in 
equipment am! which in turn 
simplifies, speeds up and cuts 
the cost of production. It can 
also rednee equipment size or 
enable equipment to have 
more facilities. 


Low cost custom chip design 
systems are also likely to 
affect the semi-conductor in- 
dustry itself, in that mnch of 
its activities will be manufac- 
turing to customers' designs, 
rather than standard products. 

In addition, US and Europe- 
an drip manufacturers are 
likely to face increased compe- 
tition from Japanese and other 
Far Eastern companies which 
so far have had little success in 
world custom chip markets. 
ASE may help them to com- 
pete on equal terms.

Did you know that no less 
than 10 per cent of all newPC 
users are working in, or at least 
being exposed to, a WIMP 
environment? 

WIMPS in computer jargon 
are Windows, Icons, Mouse 
and Pointers and have become 
the latest means by which man 
communicates with m achine. 
Instead of a cryptic screen 
display, which only those with 
a thorough knowledge of two 
or three thick and cryptic 
manuals can understand, a 
piece of WIMP software turns 
your computer screen into a 
graphic representation of an 
office. 

It comes complete with 
1 filing cabinets, notepads fold- 
ers, clipboards, wastepaper 
basket enormous pencils, gi- 
ant erasors and a dock. 

The activities which may be 
carried out are represented by 
postage stamp sized pictures, 
called icons; suggestive of the 
nature of the task. The mouse 
is a hand-held device which, 
when rolled around a desktop, 
moves a pointer on the screen 
to indicate the desired activi- 
ty. So for. so familiar — and, 
yes. it does make using a 
computer easier. 

Not of. course, that any of 
these items look exactly like 
their real counterparts or even 
behave exactly like them. 
Represented by icons on the 
screen they resemble more a 
child's idea of what the real 
thing might look like. And 
functionally the resemblance 
to childhood continues with 
wastepaper baskets that are 
infinitely bottomless and 
notepads whose surface never 
becomes grubby no matter 
how frequently yon erase from 
them.

You want to open a file? 
Then move the mouse until

cabinet and click the mouse’s 
bunon to open a file. You 
want to throw it away? Then 
move it to the wastepaper 
basket picture and drop it in. 
You want to know the time? 
Weil, there's even a picture of 
a dock which, when strode by 
the mouse, will fill the screen 
with its image.

By Maggie MdLenlnq 
London Zoo is seeking com- 
puter-lheraie volunteers to 
help create a preventive medi- 
cine' database for rare and 
endangered species. Staff at 
the zoo's Animal Hospital jo 
Regent’s Park are compiling 
the database initially from the 
zoo's 692 resident species, but 
planningxventually to coveT 
all 1 9,000 known species of 
mammals, birds and reptiles. 

When the system is opened 
to outside access, veterinary 
practices will be able to call up 
clinical records by compuier 
to' help treat exotic ani mals 
Other zoos win also contribute 
ibeir - own general 
information. 

Work started on the system 
about* IS - months ago, and 
computer records have re- 
placed paper reports since 
January 1985. Backdated 
records will be added for 
special projects and for endan- 
gered species such as the black 
rhino and the scimitar-homed 
oryx, a North American ante- 
lope being bred in British zoos 
to replenish stocks in the rest 
of the world. 

Much development work 
has still to be done, including 
setting up electronic road 
between London Zoo and 
Whipsnade. Both zoos are 
part of the Zoological Society 
of London, but sharing a

Gallium arsenide for 
speed and reliability 

By Geof Wheelwright in Nice 


Though gallium arsenide may 
sound like something you 
might put inside a cup of tea to 
form a potential murder weap- 
on in feet it is one of the 
hottest topics in computer 
research laboratories at the 
moment 

One of the computer com- 
panies spending heavily in 
research in this field is Sperry 
— recently merged with Bur- 
roughs and a major contractor 
of advanced technology to the 
US Government Last week, 
some of Sperry’s top research 
people spoke about the 
company's belief that thegallir- 
um arsenide -computer chip 
technology is crucial to the 
Star Ware project ■ 

;'.The crux of the matter is 
speed and reliability. Existing 
computer technology, based 
on etching computer chips 
partially out of silicon, is 
neither secure nor fast enough 
for the jobs that Star Wars will 
place on it For some years 
researchers have been looking 
for alternative chip manufac- 
turing materials to replace 
silicon. 

They believe they may have 
found the answer in gallium 
.arsenide — its operation is said 


to be unaffected by radiation 
and can run at the very high 
speeds necessary for a com- 
puter to detect an incoming 
missile in time to disarm U. 

According to Dr Joseph 
Mathias, Sperry's vice presi- 
dent of research and technol- 
ogy, gallium arsenide chips are 
expensive to produce — but 
prove highly suitable to 
specialised applications. 

Dr. Mathias said gallium 
arsenide will also eventually 
be used in conventional com- 
puter systems — starting with 
the mainframe. But he 
emphasised that the possible 
benefits of gallium arsenide 
research to Star Wars are still a 
few years oft “I don’t expect 
that gallium arsenide will be in 
high-speed digital computer 
systems until at least 1992,” 
Dr Mathias predicts . . 

The first non-military appli- 
cation of gallium arsenide is 
likely to be in a 
supercomputer manufactured 
by the US-based Cray com- 
puter company. These are so 
powerful and expensive, that 
it is usually only large govern- 
ment departments or huge 
corporations which can find 
the money to finance them.

animal collection shared with 
Whipsnade. 

Details of each individually 
identifiable animal, such as 
name, age, parentage. Interna- 
tional Species Inventory Sys- 
tem number and place of birth 
arc entered on-line at the 
hospital. Clinical records are 
added if it is admitted for 
treatment. 

Dr Macc said: “We have no 
shortage of zoology students 
here during the holidays, but 
this year we also need volun- 
teers with computer expertise. 

“There are three phases to 
the project firstly to establish 
the Regent's Park database, 
secondly to make it available 


to outside vets and thirdly to 
open it up so other zoos can 
add comments on habitat or 
diet. 

“In the past it has been very 
time-consuming finding out 
about for example, the peri- 
natal mortality of a species. 
The computer system should 
make retrieval practically in- 
stantaneous. 

Dr James Kirkwood, Lon- 
don Zoo’s senior ventinary 
officer, said: “If wc can rapidly 
survey the causes of disease 
and mortality within the zoo, 
we can make best use of our 
time and efforts in preventing 
future disease.” 

One of the problems for vets 


treating exotic animals is that, 
though they can have diagnos- 
tic tests carried out in ordinary 
laboratories, they may not 
know whether the results are 
normal or abnormal for a rare 
species. 

London Zoo's database 
holds the results of blood tests 
on individual animals and 
automatically calculates the 
average for that species, so 
vets will be able to dial in to 
check their results. Dr Kirk- 
wood also expects biochemis- 
try, anaesthesia, growth, 
habitat and dietary informa- 
tion to be added to the system, 
some of which may be con- 
tributed by other zoos. 


By Michael Hallhvell 
Not very long ago one survey 
claimed that more than 80 per 
cent of office workers were 
dissatisfied with their comput- 
ers and that only 1 7 per cent 
felt they were getting maxi- 
mum benefit from them. This 
should come as no surprise — 
there are reasons why this 
situation exists which are 
often not admitted. 

The huge growth in the sales 
of desktop micros during the 
past few years can be attribut- 
ed directly to the development 
of the spreadsheet and its 
ability to perform “what if” 
tvpe calculations. Following 
this came the word processor 
and the micro-based database. 

Now we have access to a 
significant number of pro- 
grams which, using all three, 
can create, merge and sort 
data in sophisticated ways to 
produce comprehensive and 
detailed reports and 
projections. 

Managers persuade their 
bosses to spend the money to 
acquire computer aids to 
“better” management or have 
the equipment imposed upon 
them. Junior staff and secre- 
taries. told of this, think that 
all their problems are now 
solved and the pressure to gel 
back on time from the pub at 
lunchtime will miraculously 
disappear. 

Bui the managers, the ju- 
nior staff, the secretaries and 
the salesman who goes away 
mentally calculating his com- 
mission, forget the basic fact 
that will tend to prevent the 


new. exciting micro from 
making a positive contribu- 
tion for some considerable 
time. 

What is it? Simple. Manag- 
ers can't type and secretaries 
cam add. Of course there are 
exceptions and it is the 17 per 
cent who are satisfied that 
they arc getting the right son 
of benefit from their invest- 
ment in technology who are 
the exceptions. 

1 have seen numerate, expe- 
rienced managers take several 
minutes to type a heading 
such as “Financial Projection 
1 985”. I have seen secretaries 

The manager is 
often inhibited 
by his inability 
to use a keyboard 

type the same in two seconds 
flat, but who cannot work out 
a percentage to save their 
lives. 

Here lies a significant part 
of the problem. The manager 
who may have the mental 
ability to conceive complex, 
comprehensive numeric lay- 
outs using a spreadsheet is 
inhibited and ashamed by an 
inability to use the keyboard. 

Frustration sets in. Manag- 
ers convince themselves that 
it is quicker to do it the old 
way with a pencil and paper, 
passing the resultant mess to a 
secretary who sorts it out, lays 
it out nicely on a typewriter, 
produces an excellent one-off 


but has no need to understand 
the arithmetic behind it. The 
cover of the micro does not 
come off that day — or the 
nexu 

It is no use delegating the 
job to a secretarial assistant. 
To work out precise 
spreadsheet formulae and lay- 
out. or database constructions 
can be difficult and the origi- 
nal conception has always to 
be flexible up to the point 
where a final version is agreed. 
As soon as the manager, 
desperately wantinga micro to 
earn its keep, tries delegation 
there is the problem of com- 
municating ideas, the underly- 
ing mathematical concept and 
the whole objective. 

So what's the answer? It is 
easier to get managers to learn 
a decent standard of hum-and- 
pcck typing than it is to raise 
secretaries to an MBA level of 
business understanding. To 
the sellers of stand-alone 
micros f would suggest you 
include, as free software, one 
of the many typing tutor 
programs that are around. 

Do not expect the micro to be 
productive from day one — be 
patient. Give time' for learn- 
ing: for experiment. Find the 
right sort of training, for 
yourself and your staff, h docs 
"not need to cost £4-£500 a day. 

Above all persevere — if the 
novelty wears off it is either 
because you have become a 
competent manager in an 
increasingly compuier con- 
scious world, or because you 
haven’t tried haiti enough.

F. C Shepherd and Co Ltd y 

Jerrom 

Before Lord Justice Lawton. 
Lord Justice Mustill and Lord 
Justice Ba [combe 
[Judgment given July 211 
An apprentice plumber who 
during his apprenticeship had 
been convicted of conspiracy to 
assault and affray, as a result of 
which he had been sentenced to 
Borstal training, and who the 
employers refused to take back 
after 39 weeks' absence had not 
been dismissed by the employ- 
ers but the training service 
contract had been frustraiecL 
The Court of Appeal so held, 
allowing an appeal by the 
employers, F.C Shepherd and 
Co Ltd. from the Employment 
Appeal Tribunal {The Times 
MayT, 1985; [1985] ICR 552) 
who bad dismissed the 
employers' appeal and had up- 
held the industrial tribunal's 
decision that the applicant had 
been unfairly dismissed and 
award of £7,090 compensation. 

Miss Elizabeth Slade for the 
employers; Mr Peter Clark for 
the applicant, Mr Mark Jerrom. 

LORD JUSTICE LAWTON 
said that on September 10. 1 979, 
the employers took on Mark 
Jerrom as an apprentice and 
there was a training agreement 
under which be undertook to 
serve a four years* apprentice- 
ship. His father and the Joint 
Industry Board for Plumbing 
Mechanical Engineering Ser- 
vices in England and Wales 
(JIB) were parties to the agree- 
ment, which incorporated the 
JIB's regulations relating to 
apprentices. 

In June 1981 the apprentice 
was convicted of conspiracy to 
assault and affray and sentenced 
to Borstal training. On Septem- 
ber IT, 1981 the employers told 
the JIB that the apprentice had 
been sentenced to Borstal train- 
ing and that they would like to 
terminate his training agree- 
ment and asked them to make 
the neccessary arrangements. 

On January 6, 1982 the 
apprentice was released from 
Borstal. The employers refused 
to take him back. On March 26, 
1982 the apprentice applied to 
the industrial tribunal for a 
decision as to whether be had 
been fairly dismissed. 

In their notice of appearance 
the employers stated that the 
apprentice had been d i sm i s sed 
for “repudiatory conduct". 
There was a hearing of a 
preliminary issue on June 18, 
1982. to consider whether the 
tribunal had jurisdiction to 
consider the apprentice’s com- 
plaint of unfair dismissal 
The employers submitted that 
the apprentice had not been 
dismissed. If he had not, he had 
no claim against his employer. 

In their decision the tribunal 
stated that the apprentice had 
never been dismissed and was 
still employed under the terms 
of his apprenticeship agreement. 
They stated that the proceedings 
i were adjourned sine die and 
i they gave their reasons, that the 
■ agreement had not been ended 
and that there bad been no 
* dismissal . 

, His Lordship was satisfied, 
: reading the decision as a whole. 
> that the tribunal did not intend 
r to give a final decision on the 
' preliminary issue. 

1 On July 7, 1982 the local 
j conciliation panel of JIB met to 
J: consider whether to accede to 
r uie employers' request that the 


apprentice's training agreement 
should be terminated. The pane! 
decided that the termination of 
the agreement should be refused 
on the ground that the offences 
of which the apprentice had 
been convicted had no rele- 
vance to the performance of his 
work as a plumber’s apprentice. 

Thai decision was unaccept- 
able to the employers. At a 
reconvened _ bearing of the 
industrial tribunal on June 17, 
1983 the employers submitted 
that they bad not dismissed the 
apprentice because the training 
service agreement had been 
frustrated by his convictions 
and custodial sentence; alter- 
natively. that by his conduct 
resulting in his convictions and 
sentence he had repudiated the 
training service agreement and 
that they had accepted the 
repudiation. .... 

The tribunal decided that the 
training service agreement had 
not been frustrated, that the 
employers had repudiated it by 
refusing to take the apprentice 
back into their employment, 
and- that the apprentice had 
accepted that repudiation. The 
consequence was that there had 
been an unfair dismissal 
It appeared from the decision 
that the rules of the JIB gov- 
erned their thinking. Mr Clark 
had submitted that the rules did 
govern the case. 

His Lordship was satisfied 
that the industrial tribunal mis- 
directed themselves in deciding 
that the rules had any applica- 
tion to the case. . 

The Employment Appeal Tri- 
bunal were of the same opmi° n 
stating that both parties must 
have been taken to exclude any 
principle of common law under 
which absence fell lo be treated 
as a repudiation of the work 
contract Both tribunals for that 
reason adjudged that the 
apprenticeship contract had not 
been frustrated. 

The first question was 
whether what happened was 
capable in law of frustrating the 
contract; the second was 
whether it did frustrate it — that 
'was a question of feci. 

As to the first question, the 
sentence of Borstal training was 
not foreseen or provided for by 
the parties at the lime of 
contracting. What had to be 
decided was whether that out- 
side event and its consequences 
in relation to the performance of 
the contract bad occurred with- 
out either the fault or default of 
either party to it see Pool 


either parw to it see ratu 
Wilson ana Co v Partenreederei 
(>1983] AC 854, 909) per Lord 
Brandon of Oakbrook. 

There was no fault or default 
on the part of the employers. 
They were alleging that because 
of the unforeseen outside event 
the contract had been frustrated. 
If it had been, there had been no 
dismissal as defined in section 
55 of the Employment Protec- 
tion (Consolidation) Act 1978. 

The oddity of the case was 
that tbe apprentice, for his own 
purposes, was seeking to allege 
that he was in default so as to 
keep-the contract in. being. He 
had submitted, relying on 
Universal Cargo Carriers 
Corporation v Citati Q1957] 2 
QB 401), that his conduct 
resulting in tbe sentence of 
Borstal training amounted to a 
repudiation of the contract 
which the employers did not 
accept until January 1982. 

It seemed to his Lordship that 
the apprentice was seeking to 
rely upon his own default, if in 


law it should be regarded as 
such, to establish his right to 
claim for unfair dismissal The 
case called for the court to 
decide whether the apprentice’s 
conduct resulting in the sen- 
tence of Borstal training was a 
default which prevented the 
contract from being frustrated- 
The apprentice’s criminal 
conduct was deliberate but it did 
not by itself have any con- 
sequences upon the perfor- 
mance of his contract. What 
affected the performance was 
his sentence of Borstal training 
which was the act of the judge 
and which he would have 
avoided if he could have done 
so. 

It could not be said that the 
concept of “self-induced 
frustration" could be applied to 
this case. What could be said, 
however, was that when the 
apprentice acted in the criminal 
way he did be was recklessly 
putting at risk his ability to 
perform his contract. He should 
have appreciated that if he 
joined in an affray he might lose 
his liberty. 

In his Lordship's judgment, 
the apprentice should not be 
allowed to plead his own default 
in order to establish bis right to 
claim compensation for unfair 
dismissal. 

In his Lordship's judgment, 
the principle of law was that he 
who asserted that the perfor- 
mance of a contract had been 
frustrated had to prove not only 
the two essential elements to 
which Lord Brandon had re- 
ferred but that the outside event 
or extraneous change of situa- 
tion was not caused by any 
dcfoull on his pan. If the party 
against whom frustration was 
asserted could by way of answer 
rely on his own m isconduct then 
injustice resulted. 

Considering the effect of a 
custodial sentence on a contract 
of employment, in his 
Lordship's judgment, such a 
sentence was capable in law of 
frustrating the contract. 

The next question was 
whether on the facts the sen- 
tence of Borstal training did 
frustrate the contract. In his 

Lordship's judgment it did. 

Much time had been spent the 
court discussing whether tiie 
apprentice's conduct resulting 
as it did in his being sentenced 
to Borstal training was 
repud iatory of the contract. He 
had broken no term of it. His 
conduct could only be said to be 
repudiatory on the grounds set 
out in Universal Cargo Carriers 
Corporation v Citati. As his 
Lordship would decide the ap- 
peal on the frustration point he 
did not find it necessary to say 
more about repudiation. 

If he was wrong about frustra- 
tion and it should be adjudged 
that the employers had not 
accepted the apprentice’s 
repudiatory conduct before 
December 26, 1981 he was of 
the opinion that the award of 
£7,090 could not be supported. 

No reasonable tribunal would 
have found that there was no 
contributory iault affectingjhe 
constructive dismissal. The dis- 
missal would never have hap- 
pened had not the apprentice 
behaved in the criminal way he 
' did. His Lordship would reduce 
the award by 75 per cent

Justice Balcombe delivered

order under section 5 of the 
1971 Act instead. 

Mr Justice Simon Brown so 
held in tbe Queen’s Bench 
Division, refusing an applica- 
tion for judicial review by the 
applicant, Mr Dhanniah 
AJghali, a citizen of Siena 
Leone, by way of certiorari to 

J uash the decisions of the 
mmigration Appeal Tribunal 
and of tbe secretary of state who 
had given directions for the 
applicant's removal under sec- 
tion 3{SXa) of the 1971 Act. 

Subsequent to the derision of 
the secretary of state m June 
1978 to deport the applicant as 
an overstayer, be was diagnosed 
during his detention as suffering 
from schizophrenia and epi- 
lepsy and spent some time 
undergoing treatment for his 


condition in tbe hospital wing of 
tbe Ashford Remand Centre. 

Mr Alper Riza for the ap- 
plicant; Mr George Puknan for 
the secretary of state. 

MR JUSTICE SIMON 
BROWN said that the 
applicant’s case was that while 
the secretary of state was un- 
doubtedly entitled to make a 
deportation order against the 
applicant under section 5 of the 
1971 Act, he was not entitled to 
make removal directions 
against him under the pro- 
visions of Schedule 3 to that 
Act. because the applicant was 
receiving treatment for mental 
illness as an in-patient, and thus 
fell witnin the scope of section 
90 of the 1 959 Act, as amended. 
The secretary of state the relore 
could only proceed under those 
provisions. 

Mr Riza's essential argument 
was that in all casts where an 
immigrant was an in-patient in 
hospital receiving treatment for 
a mental illness, tiie prowm 
under section 90 of the 1959 Act 
was dominant or paramount to 
the general powers which were 
provided by the 1971 Act; and 
more particularly, that the 
Schedule 3 power, to give 
removal directions to someone 
against whom a deportanon 
order was made, was 
surbordinate to the provisions 
of the 1959 Act. 

The latter imposed* number 
of requirements upon the sec- 


retary of state before he could 
direct the removal of a mentally 
ill patient. 

first, he should have made 
proper arrangements for (a) the 
removal of the patient abroad 
and (b) for the care or treatment 
abroad of that patient; and 
second, under section 30(2) of 
the 1971 Act.it had to appear to 
the secretary of state that it was 
in the interests of tbe patient to 
remove him. 

His Lordship said that if 
Parliament intended that the 
Schedule 3 power should be 
ousted in regard to all patients 
falling within the ambit of 
section 90 of the 1959 Act, as 
amended, that would have been 
expressly provided for m the 
1971 Act. 

That section so easily could 
have, but so manifestly bad not 
provided for the limitations 
upon the secretary of state's 
powers to give removal direc- 
tions. 

It was impossible to conclude 
from the legislative scheme, 
whether looking a t the 1971 Act 
or the 1 959 Act or both together, 
that the provisions in the 1971 
Art were to be regarded as 
suspended, superseded or re- 
placed in those cases where the 
appellant was also a candidate 
for removal under the mental 
health powers, and accordingly 
the appeal was dismissed.

E. L Do Pont de Nenwmrs & 
Co v Enka AG and Enka BV 
Before Lord Justice Watkins 
and Lord Justice Purchas 
[Judgment given July 8] 

Where a motion in an acu^i 
and the action were heard 
together, it was within the tnai 
judge's discretion to deciae 

whether witnesses whoartended 

for the purpose of testing tne 
veracity of their 
the motion should be cross- 
examined on the wider general 
issues in the action- 
. The Court of Appeal dis- 
missed an interlocutory appeal 
by the defendants. Enka AG and 
Enka BV. and upheld a ruling by 
Mr Justice Falconer that the 
cross-examination of wb wt- 
nesses called by the plaintiffs. E 
I. Du Pont de Nemours* Co be 
limited to issues in the motion. 

Mr William Aldous. QC. Mr 
Hugh Laddie, QC and Mr David 
KJichra for the defenfont* Mr 
Stephen Gratwiek. QC and Mr 
Michael Fysh for the plaintiffs. 

LORD JUSTICE WATKINS 
said that Mr Justice Falconer 


was trying a com plicated patents 
action. At least three patents 
were under review and in addi- 
tion there was a side issue, 
namely whether to permit 
amendment to a patent on the 
plaintiffs* application. 

The stage had been reached 
when the plaintiffs who were 
just about to close their case, 
called two witnesses whom the 
defendants wished to cross- 
examine on affidavits as to the 
amendment. 

The defendants' counsel 
sought to cross-examine the 
witnesses on matters outside the 
confines of the matter of the 
amendment and on matters 
which went to the other actions. 
He claimed a right to cross- 
examine on a wide range of 
inquiry and the plaintiffs' coun- 
sel objected. 

The judge held that he would 
not allow the questions as to 
matters outside the affidavits. 

It could not be said that in no 
circumstances would the cross- 
examination of witnesses called 
in one action be disallowed on 
issues in another action. But in 



the present case the judge was in 
the best position to decide. 

LORD JUSTICE PURCHAS 
said that the witnesses were 
called for the purpose of cross- 
examination on their affidavits 
on the motion for leave to 
amend a specification in a 
patent. 

The motion arose because of 
the counter-claim in the main 
action and although it was 
connected with the main action 
in that sense, the motion itself 
stood on its own. 

In the circumstances of the 
two actions the judge was called 
upon to lay down rules on the 
ambit of cross-examination 
where the motion and action 
were heard together. 

The conduct of the trial was 
for the judge who had a dis- 
cretion. He had the feel of tbe 
case and the evidence before 
him and the judge's discretion 
in the present case could not be 
challenged.

Despite the encouragement of 
the crowd at Brands Hatch, still 
euphoric from the success of the 
British Grand Prix winner Nigel 
Mansell a week earlier, the Silk 
Cut Jaguar XJR6s could only 
manage fourth and sixth places 
in the Shell Gemini 1,000 
kilometre race on Sunday. They 
were not able to recapture their 
glory in the 1 . 000 kilometre at 
Silvcrstonc earlier m the year. 
The race was won by Bob 
Wof/ck. of France, and the 
Italian Mauro Baldi in a Porsche 
956B.

Because of four incidents in.' 
the race, in which there were no c 
injuries, the pace car was called * 
out and. for a total of about 40 . 
minutes the cars cruised around 
the circuit in procession. Due to; 
the tight fuel regulations (the-, 
cars are allowed 114 gallons).* 
this enforced rest suited the* 
thirstier lurbo-chaxged Porsches 1 
who were able to raise the boost i 
and therefore the power on their

slopped just before the finish 
with severe problems and only

The Briish jumor team for 
tne.wbnd Junior Champion- 
ships in Roudnfce, near Prague. 
(July 30 to August 3) is full of 
promise: Last, year in East 
Germany* Britain reached two 
finals and reaped a precious 
silver medal in coxless lours 
behind Romania and ahead of 
Italy, East Germany and the 
Soviet Union. 

Recent thinking with regard 
to : junior' . internationals . has 
become pragmatic, producing 
composite crews from the best 
avaitaWc schools and clubs. 
Thanks to the generosity of 
supporters*: the. team this .time 
has enjoyed a successful training 
camp at Chester. 

The flagship will undoubtedly 
bethccoxless pairs of Jonathan 
Hulls (Hampton School) and 
Jonathan Sragfield (Bedford 
Star). Both were members of Iasi 
year's world silver medal 
coxiess four. 

Two _• weeks ago, Singfield 
stroked Bedford. Star in their 
centenary -year to a brilliant 
victory m the Britannia Cup ax 
Henley. Bedford Star were with- 
out ;SmgfieW in Sunday's na- 
tional coxed four finals, 
finishing a poor fourth. Hulls 
was a member of Hampton 
School's winning eight in the 
Princess ' Elizabeth Challenge 
Cup at the royal regatta. 

The men's eight is based 
round three of the engine room 
of St Edward's School who won 
the special race for schools atthe 
royal regatta. 

• British junior crews 
brought back one gold and six 
silver medals from the six- 
nation CoUpc de la Jeunesse on 
the Wolbensee course near 
Bern. The coxed four rowed 
down the Italian and French 
crews over- the last 300 metres 
and in. the eight and coxkss four 
events the British crews took 
dose-second . places. A particu- 
larly well deserved silver medal 
w& won by the girls' double 
scull of Rachel Edwards and 
Julia Young-

Expulsion 
of S Africa 
on table 

At the request of the Soviet 
Union's rowing federation. The 
International Rowing Federa- 
tion (FISA) congress will debate 
at its. meeting in Nottingham 
next month the exclusion of 
Sduth Africa (Jim RaiJion 
writes}. • 

In the prevailing climate, n is 
unfortunate for Britain that the 
congress will be held in Notting- 
ham on August 16 during the 
world rowing championships. 
The three Amateur Rowing 
Association delegates, despite 
their personal opinions, are 
hamstrung by the process of 
democracy. Their vote will be 
determined by the ARA Coun- 
cil, who will be convened for a 
special meeting in early August. 

. TTbe . councillors, who one 
assumes, will have consulted 
their consaituents, will vote 
individually on the matter. 

; One delegate, Neil Thomas, 
president of the ARA, Mid 
yesterday: . “The South Ain can 
issue is reminiscent of council’s 
vote' on whether or not we 
should attend the Moscow 
Olympic regatta. We had a 
distinguished discussion and 
different points of view were 
expressed. When the vote was 1 
taken the result was against the 
advice- of Her Majesty’s Gov- 
ernment and our rowers, who 
were paramount in onr 
thoughts, went to Moscow". 

"• India's boycott of the 13th 
Commonwealth Games means 
tile withdrawal of five crews. 
India join Jamaica in the boy- 
cott of the Commonwealth re- 
gatta leaving nine countries.

Following wins at Yar- 
mouth and' Leicester, Diva 
Encore looks a good bet today 
to wn the Keith Shipton 
.Memorial Handicap at Folke- 
Istone where the entire pro- 
gramme has been sponsored 
to raise money for the Kent 
Association of Boys Clubs, 
which was founded 50 years 
ago. 

Tbc Association, which 
helps about 3,000 in the 
county, is hoping to raise 
£10,000 in order to purchase a 
minibus. 

When a filly begins to 
improve the way that Diva 
Encore has recently they are 
often worth following because 
for a while they are usually a 
step or two in front of the 
handi capper. 

Diva Encore had not done 
much before she beat 
Majestician at Yarmouth. But 
she proved that that was no 
fluke at Leicester last Tuesday 
when she ran on much too 
strongly for Zaubarr, who was 
the hot favourite on the 
strength of recent victories at 
Bath and Newmarket 

Robert Armstrong, Diva 
Encore's trainer, had plenty of 
engagements from which to 
pick her next race. He opted 
for today's which, after re- 
search, he regards as the 
easiest and I think Diva 
Encore looks capable of shrug- 
ging aside her penalty. 

Also judged on the way that 
she finished at the end of a 
mile and three-quarters at 
Yarmouth today's longer dis- 
tance should not present a 
problem; 

My oiher principal fancies 
on the East Kent course are 
Brooks Dilemma (2.45) and 
Taylor of Soham (4.45). 

Brooks Dilemma bolted in 
by six lengths al Ungfield last 
time out and not surprisingly 
Solo Singer, who was her main 
rival that day, has declined to 
re-oppose her in the Jones 
Lang Wootton Stakes. 

Taylor of Soham, the win- 
ner of an apprentices' race at 
Yarmouth last Thursday, is 
not penalised for the SunJey 
Estates Fillies Handicap.

Robert Songster's flying sprinter. Doable Schwartz (above), who was just touched off by French raider Last Tycoon in the 
King's Stand Stakes at Royal Ascot, reappears in the King George Stakes at Glorkms Goodwood on Thursday week. The 
Charles Nelson-trained five-year-old then heads for the william Hill Sprint Championship at York's Ebor meeting on 
August 21. Nelson also saddles his Chesham Stakes scorer Minstrella for the valuable Heinz 57 Stakes at Phoenix Park 

Simonstay Maiden Stakes. 

Elder brother Pat's best ride 
is likely to be Ozopulmin, who 


At Ayr I like the look of 
Chime Time (nap) to win the 
Strathclyde Stakes now that 


Wiganthorpe is not running. 

The only lime that Colin 
Tinkler's sharp colt has been 
beaten this season was at 
Royal Ascot where he went 
down by four lengths to 
Minstrella in the Chesham 
Stakes. 

Any disappointment that 
his connections felt at the time 
must have evaporated since. 
First when Minstrella fully 
extended the impressive 
Queen Mary Stakes winner 
Forest Flower in the Cherry 
Hinton Stakes at Newmarket 
and then again when they 


watched their own colt slam 
Glow Again by six lengths at 
York. 

Glow Again had won her 
three previous races and to 
beat her the way he did Chime 
Time must be pretty quick. 

While Mr Grumpy. 
Peatswood Shooter, Team Ef- 
fort and Sinclair Lady are all 
useful, but none can boast a 
performance comparable to 
Chime Time and he is napped 
to give weight away all round. 

With five victories to his 
credit at Ayr already Wind- 
pipe has become a favourite 
with those who patronise the 
Scottish course, even though 
he is trained in Yorkshire. 


Bill Watts's eight-year-old 
looked as good as ever when 
he won on the track a month 
ago and 1 think that he will be 
a tough nut to crack in the 
Souter Johnie Handicap. 

At Pontefract this evening it 
should pay to follow the 
talented Eddery brothers. Ti- 
tle-chasing Pat can improve 
his chances of becoming 
champion again by landing 
another treble on Ozopulmin 
(6.45), Exclusive Cat (7.35) 
and Butterfly Kiss (8.35), 
while Amir Albadeia (8.5) 
should only have to reproduce 
his Newbury and Sandown 
form in the spring to give Paul 
a winning ride in the 


makes his debut in this coun- 
try in the Bradley EBF Stakes. 
Luca Cumani’s colt took high 
rank in Italy last year when he 
won two races, including the 
group three Criterium 
Nationale at Milan- 
George Robinson, our New- 
market Correspondent, said 
yesterday that be has been 
impressed by the way that 
Ozopulmin has gone in his 
gallops on the Heath since his 
arrival and considers him 
capable of beating the likes of 
Andartis, North Verdict and 
My Generation. 


Franca VhfcuUni teams np 
with the Te« Jones-trained 
three-year-old Mawsuff fn her 
attempt to lift the Orloff Di- 
amond Stakes dor a recant fifth 
tone at Ascot on Saturday. 

The ladies' nee, tradftta&fflf 
the opening event on Ascot's 
glittering King George VI and 
Queen Elizabeth Day pro- 
gramme, looks fiercely compet- 
itive this year with Princess 
Anne already engaged for Garin 
Pritchard-Gordon’s smart coh. 
Cresta Auction, and Gay 
Harwood saddling the Royal 
Hunt Cop third, King's Head, 
for his 16-year-old d au g hter , 
Amanda, to ride. 

Last season's winning rider. 
Penny Hills, wife of the 
Lamboam trainer, Barry, will be 
aboard Hills Bid. Lester 
Piggott's secretary, Jenny 
Oiwtldissia, partners the stable's 
Vague Melody, Elam MeUor's 
daughter, Dana, rides Dctiyar 
and Michael Stoote's secretary, 
Maxine Jnster, successful m 
this event in 1983, has a choice 
candidate in Eve's Error. 

Miss Vittadini won this cov- 
eted prize in 1975 on Peter 
Walwyn's Hard Day and then 
for three consecutive seasons — 
1979 to 1981 - on Fortuny 
(Garin Hunter) and Cracking 
Form, twice, for Walwyn. 

However, this is likely to be 
the 33-year-oM rider’s farewell 
appearance in the Ascot race as 
she does not intend to renew her 
jockey's licence next year be- 
cause of increased business 
commitments. 

She manages the Beech 
House- Stud at Cbevdey, near 
Newmarket, for her Milan- 
based father. Dr Carlo Vittadini, 
who won the 1975 Derby with 
Grundy, and next year the 
Lyphard horse, Pharly, winner 
of three French gro up races, will 
join Ardross as a resident 
stallion there. 

Miss Vittadini, employed as a 
full-time work rider at Henry 
Cedl*s Warren Place stable, is 
also part of Steve Cantben's 
back-up ♦ wim l assisting the 
champion jockey with his (ravel 
arrangements and chauffeuring. 

The Ascot race has been very 
lucky for her. As winning rider 
she has been presented with four 
attractive prizes from flu spon- 
sors; De Beers; a diamond ring, 
two choker necklaces with i- 


amonds, and a gold chain with a 
diamond mounted on a min- 
utnre stirrup. 

She has her final gallop on 
Mawsuff at Newmarket tomor- 
row. The Known Fact colt 
certainly has eacb-way possibil- 
ities as he was beaten only 1VS 
lengths by Dallas at Brighton 
and Luca CumanTs three- year- 
okl went on te land the Britannia 
Stakes at Royal Ascot Mawsuff 
then opened his ac co un t with a 
iaM-fought victory over Star 
Cutter at Sandown before run- 
ning In Fact to a neck, again at 


VittadinTs one reserva- 
tion about Satmday's event is 
the number of inexperienced 
riders taking part. She said: “I 
think there should be a change 
of rules, like the Moet and 
Chandoo men's race at Epsom, 
so that only riders who have 
ridden at least five winners are 
eligible. There are some nice 
horses running in onr race and it 
would be a pity if one was struck 
into during the hurly-burly.” 

Apart from Saturday's event, 
the Vittadini family are hoping 
to collect another Ascot prize ou 
Friday with Miller’s Dost in the 
Cran bourne Chase Maiden 
Stakes. This Shiriey Heights 
colt was an expensive tenure at 
the Newmarket July meeting 
after swallowing his toogne, but 
with a longue strap fitted they 
are hopeful be will show his true 
form.

CRICKET: HAMPSHIRE AND GLOUCESTERSHIRE WIN BY AN INNINGS 


Halt and lame 
battle on 
to give hope to 

Lancashire 


By John Woodcock, Cricket Correspondent 


CANTERBURY: Kent, with 
nine second innings wickets in 
hand, need 129 runs to beat 
Lancashire. 

At the end of a hard-fought 
day’s cricket held up with 
irritating, sometimes needless 
regularity by bad light Kent 
were 42 for one in their second 
innings, needing 129 more to 
win. Altogether something 
like two hours were lost at 
close of play the match was 
just about as’ evenly poised as 
it had been at the start. 

The pitch has enough pace 
and bone in h. and enough 
movement for the day to have 
been devoid of spin. 
Underwood's absence had 
something to do with that 
though he would not have had 
much bowling. He is missing a 
championship match for the 
first time since 1976. having 
become another victim of a 
West Indian fast bowler. Gray 
of Surrey hit him on the hand 
at the Oval last week. In his 
place yesterday was Igglesden, 
who is 21, comes from 
Westerham and. on this form, 
is one to follow. 

Lancashire's chances were 
done no good by injuries to 
O’Shaughnessy. whose bowl- 
ing iney win miss today, and 
Fairbrother. Both being im- 
mobile — O’Shaughnessy has 
aggravated a knee strain and 
Fairbrother was hit on the hip 
by Lhe ball before play began - 

Lancashire's second innings 
was given a brisk start by 
Mendis and Fowler, whose 
partnership of 69 in IS overs, 
the highest of the match, was 
helped by there being no third 
man. Once Ellison had re- 
moved them both in the same 
over, runs were hard to come 


When Ellison picked up 
Abrahams and Maynard 
cheaply, and Igglesden took a 
useful wicket Lancashire were 
95 for five. Being halt and 
lame, they did rather well to 
get another 70. It needed two 
good catches in feet to keep 
them down to that one by 
Ellison at mid-off and a 
juggling effort by Cowdrey at 
slip. Batting was often hazard- 
ous, as it probably will be 
today.

PORTSMOUTH: Hampshire 
(24pts) beat Warwickshire (2) by 
an innings and 43 runs. 

Accurate and, in Marshall's 
case, hostile bowling on a pitch 
which helped the seam bonders 
brought Hampshire victory by 
an innings m two days. Only 
Arif Din and Mc Millan, both of 
whom made half centuries, de- 
layed them for long. 

Warwickshire's first innings 
ended before lunch. Resuming 
on 22 for two, and without 
Lloyd whose nose was broken at 
the weekend, they were no 
match for Marshall or, to a 
lesser degree, Connor. With the 
exception, that was, of Arif Din. 

Not so long ago one felt he

Cambridge carries on 
where Walsh left off 


BRISTOL : Gloucestershire (24 
pis) beat Somerset (4) by an 
innings and Jive runs. 

On Saturday Gloucestershire 
were out for 308 and had taken 
six Somerset wickets for 85. 
Yesterday morning Somerset 
were all out for 147 and were 
required to follow on. The loss 
of Marks early on did not give 
them sufficient margin against 
Walsh, who produced figures of 
nine for 72, the best of his 
career, and for that matter the 
best for anyone in England this 
season. It was a pity he did not 
lake all 10 but with eight down 
and a catch going from the 
bowling of Sainsbury to 
Graveney, runs were too scarce 
for chivalrous risks. 


By Alan Gibson 

in the pavilion and Somerset 
had nothing much to play for. 
Marks and Harden made a 
stand and then Dredge and a 
biffing Garner, but the innings 
defeat was not saved. 

Gloucestershire will have 
been glad to have got the match 
done with when the evening sky 
grew grey. They have never, 
strictly speaking, won the 
championship — it was an 
unofficial afliir when they were 
last head of the list — but they 
have a side this season with the 
right b alanc e and enthusiasm.

In the second innings it was 
Bain bridge who did the damage 
and they were the best figures of 
his career as well. There was no 
vicious pitch to account for all 
this; good, tidy bowling, and 
casual batting made up most of 
the sum. 

In the second innings Felton 
and Wyatt made a calm start. 
Then, at 35. Felton and Harden 
were out to consecutive balls. 
Wyatt went at 37. One run later. 
Richards popped the gentlest of 
chances to short square leg. it 
was interesting to see the re- 
action of the Bristol crowd to 
this. 

Of course they love beating 
Somerset and they have their 
eyes on the championship this 
season but they were on top, 
there was a day and a half to go 
and the greatest batsman in the 
world is worth watching for an 
hour or two. They greeted his 
return with a kind of awed 
satisfaction. There he was. back

TRENT BRIDGE: New Zea- 
landers drew with Notting- 
hamshire. 

A shadow was cast over the 
final stages of the New 
Zealanders* last match before 
the first Test when Jeremy 
Coney, their captain, was struck 
on the cheek while fielding at 
silly point. Although there were 
no obvious signs of a break, he 
was badly bruised and after 
treatment was taken to hospital 
for an exploratory X-ray last 
nighL 

It was a perturbing end to an 
otherwise satisfactory day for 
the tourists, who played almost 
all the worthwhile cricket for the 
third day running. In the morn- 
ing Martin Crowe, who again 
looked in co mi seating form, 
and Edgar took the opportunity 
of some useful batting practise, 
and then the bowlers flexed their 
muscles purposefully as the 
weakened Nottinghamshire side 
made only a half-hearted at- 
tempt at Coney's generous 
declaration — setting 265 runs in 
four hours for victory. 

Realistically Nottingham- 
shire's chances looked promis- 
ing while Broad was in 
occupation. If Watson, 3gain the 
most persistent and penetrative 
of the New Zealanders' seam 
bowlers. passed his outside edge 
more than once in the early 
states, Uie opener soon replied 
by driving him for consecutive 
fours. 

Robinson also appeared" 
reasonably comfortable, bat the 
introduction of Gray ended his 
stay as he chopped the arm-ball 
onto his stumps. Broad, how- 
ever, was moving purposefully 
— as if determined to lay the 
calumny that he cannot play 
spin once and for all. He 
launched a savage assault on the 
slow left-arm bowler and 
whether by choice or accident. 
Newell was virtually a passive 
partner as the pair put on 63 in 
12 overs for the second wicket 
Broad claimed 48 of them as 
two overs from Gray cost 24, 
four of the five boundaries, 
including the six. coming from 
lusty legside blows. 


The return of Watson ended 
the charge as Broad steered him 
invitingly to gully. The score, 
revealingly, was 1 1 1, and so it 
remained for the next wicket as 
Johnson, who has looked totally 
out of touch, followed two overs 
later, attempting to hook a 
delivery too for up to him. That 
gave Smith, back behind the 
stumps after his absence with 
back trouble on Sunday, a 
simple skier off his glove. 

The obstinate Newell, push- 
ing the intermittent single to 
keep his score ticking along just 
below a run an over, however 
continued single-mindedly. As 
Birch contributed more force- 
fully. the generosity of the 
declaration meant that the tar- 
get was still readily attainable 
even after Birch fell to a 
mistimed hook. 

There were 94 needed when 
the 20 overs began, but the first 
four accounted for Newell, 
bowled off his pads, and Not- 
tinghamshire lost any interest in 
winning the match. The game 
was meandering inevitably to 
the draw when French’s slashing 
drive struck Coney on the full 
and lhe New Zealand captain 
was taken off

Cutting the ball both ways, 
Marshall had Smith leg before in 
the first over of the day. Amiss 
superbly caught by James at 
cover. Parsons taken at the 
wicket and Small was yorilced. 
Connor trimmed Hum page’s 
bails and, after M unton had 
stubbornly resisted for 19 overs 
and as many runs, saw to the 
taiL 

There was less in the pitch for 
the bowlers when Warwickshire 
followed on and consequently 
they batted a little better. Per- 
haps it could be put down to 
pride. Thorne and Smith made a 
more convincing start before 
Amiss, having reached 33. cut 
Tremlett too uppish ly and was 
held at gully. Hnmpage simi- 
larly got himself out, caught at 
point, and Parsons was unable 
to lake his bat as well as his body 
out of Marshall's line. Mc- 
Millan. who played some cul- 
tured strokes, also went to 
Marshall and the end was nigh.

Glamorgan trailing 


Glamorgan made 307 for five 
ai St Helens. Swansea, which 
means they are still 182 runs 
behind Northamptonshire (Pe- 
ter Marson writes). Morris made 
90, Vounis 66, and Onrong 
begins again this morning on 67. 
There can have been few, if any, 
to have relished the thought of 
padding up to lace the bowling 
at Swansea, where Glamorgan, 
at 13 for no wicket, stood 476 
runs behind Nonhants. 

Clearly, Glamorgan thought 
there to be little point in 
breaking into a trot, so caution 
was the batsmen's watchword, 
and that meant progress was 
slow. Pauline was the first to go. 
caught and bowled by Cape! for 
38 with the score 67, and 


Holmes next, at 1 19. By tea they 
had reached 189 for four ii 


in 88 


overs. Morris, and Maynard, 
too. were back in the pavilion. 

Slack hit a good hundred and 
Butcher made 58 as Middlesex 
made 271 for five at Derby, 
against Derbyshire, to take a 
236-run lead. Radley, who is 25 
not out. and Edmonds begin this 
morning with Middlesex leading 
by 236. 

In the morning, Anderson, 
Marples and the rest held on for 
another 20 overs as Derbyshire 
edged forward by 4 1 runs to 177. 
• David Gower, the Leicester- 
shire captain, put on a Sussex 
sweater and fielded as a sub- 
stitute for them when the vis- 
itors ran out of replacements at 
Grace Road. He saw a studious 
century from Balderstone give 
Leicestershire a comfortable 
lead. 


HEADING LEY: Yorkshire (23 
points) beat Surrey (5) by seven 
wickets. 

Seven wickets for Jarvis with 
Clinton carrying his bat through 
Surrey's second innings were the 
outstanding performances in 
this match yesterday. A good 
finish, though, was over- 
shadowed by announcements 
that Boycott has broken a bone 
in his left hand and that 
Sidebotiom has a similar injury 
to his right fooL 

Both men will be absent for at 
least a month and possibly 
longer. Inevitably there will be 
speculation whether either will 
be able to play again this season 
and even, possibly, that their 
careers are finished. Boycott, 
who is 45, has to choose this 
autumn between continuing as a 
player, or standing for re-elec- 
tion to the committee. 

A new club rule prohibits 
anyone fulfilling the dual role. 
With several promising young 
batsmen unable to gain a place, 
there has already been talk that 
Yorkshire's cricket committee 
might not renew Boycott's play- 
ing cqntract. Sideboitom, 
Yorkshire's most experienced 


By Richard Sbreeton 

Boycott sustained his fracture 
a fortnight ago against Leicester- 
shire at Middlesbrough. When 
on 38 he was struck on the hand 
by de Freitas while making bis 
much acclaimed 1 50th century. 
The hand has remained painful 
since, although Boycott played 
in Yorkshire's Iasi match and on 
Sunday made an unbeaten 135 
before having the injury con- 
firmed yesterday. This year 17 
innings have brought him 829 
runs, an average of 51.81. 

Surrey, 1 5 for three overnight, 
still 23 behind, owed it to 
Ointon that their innings was 
prolonged. Yorkshire were fi- 
nally left to score 134 in 140 
minutes for victory. The nearest 
Clinton came to being dismissed 
during a stay of 250 minutes was 
when he deprived Jarvis of a 
hat-trick. 

Jarvis dismissed Lynch and 
Jesty with the last two balls of 
one over. Then Clinton almost 
played on against the first ball of 
Jarvis's next over. Jarvis main- 
tained a lively pace and good 
line, taking seven for 55 — the 
best figures of his career. 

With the ball tending to keep 
low. Yorkshire's task was not 


seam bowler, has a history of straightforward, until Bairetow 
injuries in recent seasons. ° — ~ l "* h,c

SOUTHEND: Essex, with all 
their second-innings wickets in 
hand, arc 81 runs ahead of 
Worcestershire. 

Worcestershire staged a splen- 
did recovery against Essex yes- 
terday thanks largely to Dipak 
Patel, who rose mom his sick 
bed to score 128 in four hours 
with 18 fours and a six. Before 
lunch Worcestershire had been 
in danger of following on but 
despite Foster’s sustained Jasl- 
medium bowling which brought 
him six for 93, they ultimately 
conceded a first-innings lead of 
only 47. 

Patel had been suffering from 
flu over the weekend, missing 
the game on Sunday when he 
could scarcely stand, and in 
warm weather batted through- 
out his innings yesterday in a 
long-sleeved sweater. 

The day had begun well for 
the batsmen, with Hick and 
D'Oliveira adding 50 in the first 
11 overs, but after Hick had 
reached his own half-century off 
47 balls, the next three balls 
from Lever accounted for him, 
caught at third slip, and 
D’Oliveira, in the gully. 

Informed local opinion had it 
that the combination of high 
tide and humidity was strongly 
in favour of swing bowling and 
this continued to be borne out in 
the pre-lunch period. Neale 
went leg-before to Foster three 
overs later and Patel and Smith 
were frequently in trouble. 

Smith fell to a low catch by 
East at 131, still 239 behind, but 
after -lunch, as the tide went out. 
conditions eased and Patel 
shared a seventh-wicket 
partnership of 1 10 in 37 overs 
with Newport and saw off the 
threat of the follow-on. Pringlq 
accounted for Newport, teg- 
before on the back foot, but 
Radford and lnchmore hit out 
to take Worcestershire to maxi- 
mum batting points. The light 
was grey by the time Patel was 
ninth out. fending a bouncer 
from Foster to die wicketkeeper. 


HORSE TRIALS 


Toughest 
course 
for British 
Open 


By Jenny MacArthnr 

Competitors at this year's 
Croft Original British open 
horse trials championship ai 
Gatcombe Park m Gloucester- 
shire wifl face the stiffest course 
in the four-year history of the 
trial 


The even! to be held on 
August 16 and 17, includes the 
British national championships, 
formerly held at Locko Park- 
Captain Mark Phillips, the or- 
ganizer and course designer, has 
built a course in keeping with 
the event's new status. 


There are easier alternatives 
at most fences but the direct 
route must be taken if riders 
wish to seek victory. 


The most technically difficult 
fence is the Coutts Complex (14) 
involving a double of big cor- 
ners with just a bounce in 
between. After this the problems 
on the 28-fence course (1 1 are 
new) come thick and fast. The 
Land Rover fence (19) looks 
solidly uncompromising, the 
CO Corral (21) involves a 
ferociously steep climb with a 
solid rail at the top. The next 
fence, the Diablo Double (22), 
copied from a fence Captain 
Phillips saw at Munich in 1972, 
is likely to ghe the riders a 
frighL Set on the steepest pan of 
the hillside, the two solid fences 
leave no room for error. Im- 
mediately afterwards the rider is 
feced with a 3ft 8in rail into the 
water. Captain Phillips, whose 
biggest fear as course designer is 
that cot enough people may get 
round, was thinking yesterday 
of providing an easier alter- 
native into the water. As or- 
ganizer, he cannot compete 
himself 


The Young Riders, who have 
a final trial at Gatcombe before 
the European championships, 
will be well tested. In the 
Championship class, however, 
where Virginia Leng, Loraa 
Clarke. Lucinda Green. Mark 
Todd, and Bruce Davidson of 
the United States are entered,' 
the standard of competitor looks 
a fair match for the bold and 
imaginative course. 


YACHTING 



narrow lead 
in One-Ton 





From a Special Correspoadent, Palma 
As the One-Ton Cup fleet was 


24 hours into the long onshore 
race yesterday. Bst Food Sally 
from Sweden was reported to be 
holding a small lead as the 33- 
strong fleet approached the 
Columbretes Islands, some i 90 
miles west-north-west ' of Ma- 
jorca, the first turning point of 
the course. ■ , 

So for the race has been a 
drifting match in very tight airs, 
but latest reports indicate that 
there is now a light southerly 
breeze of around four knots and 
the fleet is making some head- 
way towards the Columbretes. 

Although a welcome change 
from the windless night, the 
southerly breeze will make the 
next leg of the course another 
tight air beat as the fleet malms a 
turn to the south-east, heading 
" " ' which 


forms die second raark pf this 
272-ratie course. 


Fast Food Sally Once m tire influence of 
s reported to be Ibiza’s thermal winds, the race is 
lead as the 33- expected to speed up, but it is 
probable in view of t" 


for the island of Ibiza, 


uiwwuii, «r — ■ -the fore- 
casted weather, that once the 
fleet has left the shores of Ibiza 
on the last leg back to Majorca, 
they will once agaia.nin.out of 
wind. If this is thc casc, the „ 
leading yachts will nett pe.ex-jCr - 
peered to finish until- the early 
hours of Wednesday morning, ' 

perhaps even later. :

The more I read about the 
decline of sport in schools, the 
more I remember the Wednes- 
day afternoons of my own youth. 
I used to lore games afternoons 
more than anything. Ralph and I 
used to go to the pub, and drink 
halves of Watney's Starlight 
and dismiss world revolution and 
whether Finnegans Wake was 
better tinn The Rainbow. 

The people who played games 
were miles beneath oar 
mountainous contempt. We 
called them “the bruisers'”, 
made self-regarding, 

“intellectual" jokes about them 
and changed the subject to La 
fcvinements in Fans. That, 
along with girls and. looking 
cooL was a subject more worthy 
of discussion. 

This was because, before the 
discovery of Starlight bitter, 
games afternoon bad been an 
unmitigated horror for five 
years. School rugby seems to be 
a sport designed to give a 
supernatural advantage to those 
who reach puberty spectacu- 
larly early. For just about every- 
body outside die year's top XV, 
rag fey was a muddy, freezing 
nightmare of aimless no coached 
rnnnmg-abont followed by in- 
tricate tactical manoeuvring 
whose purpose was to avoid 
having a shower. 

Though my school was pretty 
keen on cricket, I never got to 
play at alL I suspect this was 
because I was bad at rugby. I 
was okay at cross-country run- 
ning, bat I gave this np after I 
bad, for some freakish reason, 
ran so well I beat the field home 
by more, than a minute. The 
teacher then refused to tell me 
my time because it was so East “it

was obrions 1 had takes a short 
art”. School is supposed to teach 
yon Ant life is unfair, M that 

was the end of cross-country 
naming for me, aihd that was 
also how the nation lost a great, 
athletic star. 

I coxed eights briefly, but with 
fairly disastrous results. I had 
the great pleasure of re-meeting 
ray old coach recently, and 
reintroduced myself as “the 
worst - cox ' ever seen, on the 
Tideway”. *T have known worse 
than yon, as a matter of fact,” he . 
said, “tl suRb the competition 
for that honour is pretty 
intense.” 

The school tradition of games 
gave me an awful time, in snort. I 
hated games. So did practically 
everybody. The follies, the 
shinnies, the shorties, the unco- 
ordinated, the myopic, the un- 
competitive. The only 
competition was about who 
could get an aegrotat for some 
trifling ailment and thus spend 
the afternoon mucking about. 

However, for more important 
than its belief in games, Che 
school had a noble tradition of 
tolerance. Ralph and L, Wednes- 
day afternoon “intellectual” 
skivers, were accepted as part of 
Hie school's and life's rid) 
pattern. An official blind eye. 1 
suspect, was turned to any 
suspicion that skiving involved 
the sins of Starlight bitter. 

Sport was something I de- 


spised. Sauce then, sport hits 
become . one of the- great plea- 
sures in my life. I play cricket 
throughout the summer with 
huge enjoyment.: even if the lack 
of early coaching is apparent in 
every movement. I ride by hmse 
as often as life permits: I 
sometimes wonder, as we soar 
exuberantly over a fence. If J 
would .have bated horses had 
they been part of the- school 
aBhriculun. My working life u 
spent watching sport, talking to _ 
athletes, and it is great. f r 

When K hear about the decline 
in sports at schools because of 
lack of foods, or because of the 
increasingly popular notion that 
competitive games are had vibes, 
ny 1 feelings are very -mixed. 
School games always seemed to 
be for the few people who were 
awfully good at them, just as 
English lessons seemed tu be for 
Che people who were good at 
things like disensr" — — — :

I don't know if the people who 
miss out discover the pleasure, of 
great writing later in fifet rit 
would be nice to think . so. 
Certainly sport's pleasare&ouhe 
tome long after I had drunk my 
last half of Starlight, and when 
they Came, they were for more, 
bitoxfcafiag. But the thing is, 
when 1 hear about the woes pf;^^ 
school games, I always think, 
not about the England players 
who are lost to ns as a school 
gives op rugby, but of the 
hundreds »nd thousands of mis-

that the enormous nnjority.ef

Crooked Man, lTV,1020pm 


•There is. dearly, no limit to 
the ubiquitousness or versatility 
of the Welsh. And no end to 
their ability to surprise us. Don 
Llewellyn's THERE WAS A 
CROOKED MAN (ITV, 10.50pm), 
bearing the stamp of 

authonty because It was made by 

HTV Wales, tells us 
something that not all the 
gangster movies of the 
Thirties nor the Crime toe 
documentaries of the Eighties 
so much as mentioned: that A1 
Capone had a Welsh first 
lieutenant, Runyonesqueiy 
dubbed Murray the Hump 
(real name Humphreys), and that 
when Capone was kicked up, 
it was Murray the Hump who 
took over the reins. Not only 
that. He also took aangstardom 
in a new direction by 
“laundering" Its ULgotten gatns( 


CHOICE 


putting them to outwardly 
respectable use), and operating 
a system of presidential 
sponsorship. Despite the tong 
catalogue of vicious crimes 
laid at the Hump's door, not one 
voice is raised against turn in 

UeweHyn's film. Indeed, the jokey 
motto that the super hoodlum 
hung up in his home - “Love thy 
Crooked Neighbour as You 
Love thy Crooked Self"- could 
equally wall have been HTV's 
declaration of intent when 
embarking on this vastly 
entertaining exercise in criminal ' 
archaeology. 

•The Times 's contemporary 
verdict on R L Stevenson, quoted 
in Tusitata (Channel 4, 

9.00pm). was that he had the gift 
of a bom writer, and never 


mind the rough -hewn styte.The 
same goes for Peter 
Yetdham.who has scripted this 
three-part life of RLS. 

Tonight, after a gallop through 
the creative processes of 
Treasure Island and Jekytl and 
Hyde, the tale settles down to 
a domestic canter, with RLS's 
wife saving him from a 
tubercular death, and the 
beginning of the writer s tong 
voluntary exile in Samoa. 

•Best of the rest: Phillip 
Noyce's film about Australian 
newsreel rivalry m the late 
Forties and eany Fifties, 
Newafront (BBC2. 900pm). 
and a fascinating Living World 
documentary about sex 
determination in animals (Radio 
4,11.33am).

TUESDAY JULY 22 1986 


taught a 


painful lesson 


Not even all the backslap- 
ping could camouflage the 
American despondency as 
Greg Norman celebrated after 
capturing the 11 Sib Open 
Championship on Sunday. 

Ben Crenshaw and Tom 
Watson stood on the 
Tumberry Hotel verandah, 
after it was all over, gazing out 
to sea in the rough direction of 
home. They might have been 
wondering when another 
American will cross that great 
expanse and return with the 
title. Then they turned their 
backs on the Ailsa course and 
disappeared inside where the 
Fosters lager was already 
flowing. 

They were not privileged to 
be at a private party a few 
hours later when Norman and 
some dose friends sat in the 
18th green grandstand, 
watched only by a couple of 
security men and their Alsa- 
tian dogs, and shared a bottle 
of champagne as the midnight 
moonlight danced across the 
sea beyond. 

Crenshaw and Watson had 
shaken hands, of course, with 
the new champion and 
chorused “Well done, mate.” 
But it was not a “G’day” as far 
as the Americans were 
concerned 

Norman had followed 
Severiano Ballesteros and 
Sandy Lyle on to the Open 
Championship roll call of 
honour and the exasperated 
cry of “What’s gone wrong 
with American goifT has 
become more than just a 
prickly jibe. 

In truth Jack Nicklaus and 
Raymond Floyd, with their 
respective triumphs in the US 
Masters and LIS Open earlier 
this year, have satisfied to 
some extent the insatiable 
appetite of American golf 
enthusiasts for success. Yet 
the search for a new hero has 
so far proved as unproductive 
as it would be to try to obtain 
an invitation to Westminster 
Abbey tomorrow. 

- The problem is that the 
young Americans are pro- 
grammed to play the mani- 
cured courses of their own 
country where theastonishing 
financial rewards have robbed 
them of the curiosity instinct 
required to develop their skills 
as Nicklaus and Watson did 
before them. Even Watson has 
become so bored with playing 


By Mitchell Platts 

the same courses that he 
changed his schedule this 
season in an attempt to restore 
his enthusiasm. 

Norman has always insisted 
that every golfer should play 
the world tour before concen- 
trating his efforts on the 
United States. He practiced 
what he preached by giving 
himself sufficient time in Eu- 
rope to gain a complete under- 
standing of bow to handle a 
variety of courses in differing 
circumstances. 

“The European tour is ideal 
because one week you could 
be playing a bard, bouncing 
links then the next you have to 
adapt your game to a lush, 
parkland course,” said Nor- 
man. “It is. so important to get 
a feel for different grasses and 
different surfaces. 


Merit rise 


Gordon J Brand jumped 20 
places to third in the PGA 
European Tour Epson Order 
of Merit following Us perfor- 
mance at the Open. Hie 
Yorkshireman earned £50,000 
for finishing second to Nor* 
man at Tumberry and boosted 
his prize money for the season 
to £72,663.

9, R Rafferty (GBL £45416; 10, G

“The American golfers who 
come out of college go straight 
on to the manicured courses of 
the US Tour. There is so much 
money there that many of 
them dismiss the thought of 
playing in Europe let alone in 
the Open.” 

Norman, however, pos- 
sesses a flexibility within his 
game to not only win the Open 
but at the same time to be 
leading the money list in the 
United States this season 
where he has won two tbuma T 
ments and earned a record 
$547,000. : - 

“I want to become the first 
player to finish top of the 
money list in Australia; Eu T 
rope and America," he said. 
“I've set myself the goal of 
$750,000 for this season. I'm 
playing four tournaments in a 
row from next week, including

Bagfulls of bull’s-eyes at Bisley 


By Our Rifle Shooting Correspondent 


Even the best was not good 
enough to win The Times 
Challenge Cup and £50 prize 
at Bisley yesterday as the 
1 ,200 competitors, shooting at 
300 yards, notched up bull's- 
eyes galore. 

There were 72 of them with 


every shot in the centre for a 
maximum 50, and in the first 
lie-breaker there were still 38 
with 50/25, so they will have 
to reshoot again on Thursday 

The 38 include former 
Queen's Prize winners, An- 
drew Tucker and David Rich-

the US PGA Championship. 
Then Til come back here for 
the European Open, DunhiH 
Cup and the Suntory worid 
match-play championship.” 

Norman has never wasted 
much time thinking about his 
own financial security. He has 
been driven on more by the 
desire to become the best 
golfer in the worid. 

“I always wanted to be a 
superstar and my ambition is 
to be the No 1 golfer in the 
worid,” he said. “My feeling is 
that my best years wifi come 
when I'm around the age of 
35, so winning the Open at 31 
is extremely encouraging. 

“Some people thought my 
first major championship was 
a little long in arriving but I 
can honestly say that it had 
not become a psychological 
barrier for me. But I was 
helped in particular when Jack 
Nicklaus came over to my 
table for a quiet chat on 
Saturday evening and said, 
•There is nobody in the world 
who wants you to win this 
championship more than 1 
do.' Coming from that man it 
was a very special thing for me 
to hear those words.” 

Norman, however, kept 
control of his emotions 
throughout a final round of 69 
so that with a level par 
aggregate of 280 he became the 
first Australian to win the 
Open Championship since Pe- 
ter Thomson took the title for 
a fifth time in 1965. 

Gordon J Brand seized the 
second prize of £50,000 with 
the help of an eagle three at the 
1 7th which carried him to a 71 
for 285 — one ahead of Ian 
Woosnam (72) and Bernhard 
Langer (68). In fad the first 
five home — Nick Faldo 
finished fifth after a closing 70 
— are al) (noducts of the 
European Tour and there were 
only two Americans in the top 
13 compared with 10 in the 
first 1 1 when the Open was 
last held at Tumberry in 1 977. 

Times have changed and so 
they have for Gres Norman. 
He might have failed after 
leading going into the final 
round ofboth the US Masters 
and the US Open this year. 
But the piranhas of the golfing 
world can now stop snapping 
at the man they call the “Great 
White Shark.” He landed the 
title of Lord of the Links in the 
style of a true champion.

ATHLETICS 


TENNIS 


Africans 
are on 
the right 
track 


Britain knocked 
out by Denmark 


By Pat Botcher 
Athletics Coirepondent 


Much of the inaugural 
worid junior championships 
here in the magnificent Olym- 
pic Stadium in Athens was a 
confirmation of the status quo 
in the sport internationally. 
But the excitement came in 
the revelation. 

The young Soviet men and 
East German women contin- 
ued the overall success of their 
seniors by winning most med- 
als. The American men won 
the sprints, the African men 
won the distance events and a 
Briton won . the 800 metres. 
But three gold and three silver 
medals became more impor- 
tant than any of the 100 or so 
runners, for they were won by 
young African women. 

Nawal El Moutowakel be- 
came the first indigenous Afri- 
can woman to win an Olympic 
gold medal, in Los Angeles in 
1984, but her victory in the 
400-metres hurdles was due to 
the boycott by the East Ger 
mans, whpse athletes were 
much better than the Moroc- 
can in that event. That was not 
the case here in Athens, with 
148 countries, one of the 
broadest representations ever 
at any spotting event. 

If Maury Onyali had not been 
disqualified in the 100 metres, 
she and her Nigerian team- 
mates would have won the 
gold and silver medals in both 
sprints. And Selina Chircir. of 
Kenya, was the big success of 
the women’s middle-distance 
races, winning gold and silver 
medals, while her compatriot 
Norah’Maraga also won silver 
in. the 10.000 metres. 


- Individually, the best per- 
formances came from Vladi- 
mir Sasimovic, of the Soviet 
Union, who threw the new 
javelin 78.84 metres, while 
Colin Jackson's 13.44 sec vic- 
tory in the high hurdles was 
the best single track feat. Peter 
Chumba won special acclaim 
as the only athlete with two 
individual victories, in the 
5,000 and 10,000 metres. 

The overall British perfor 
mance was as convincing as it 
had been in last year's Europe- 
an junior championships. 
British athletes won three 
gold, three silver and two 
bronze medals here, but it is 
significant that only one 
young woman managed to do 
so — Philippa Mason, with a 
silver in the 3,000 metres. On 
the European breakdown the 
British men did particularly 
well on an overall basis of 
eight points for first place 
down to one for eighth, finish- 
ing second only to the Soviet 
Union on that score. 

The rapport that the Euro- 


Britain, seeded sixth, were 
defeated by Denmark in the 
first round of the NEC Federa- 
tion Cup here at the new 
Stvanice Stadium when Anne 
Hobbs lost 3-6, 7-5, 6-3 to 
Lone Vandborg, and Jo Dune 
went down 6-3, 6-1 to Tine 
Scheuer-Larsen. 

So. in the space of four days, 
Britain's tennis players have 
managed to win just one iive* 
set while competing at home 
on grass in the Davis Cup, and 
abroad on clay in the leading 
women's team competition. If 
British tennis has suffered a 
double blow of more humiliat- 
ing proportions in such a short 
space of time, I cannot re- 
member it 

The defeat here on a beauti- 
ful summer’s day in Prague 
was even less excusable than 
the men's efforts against Aus- 
tralia at Wimbledon. Den- 
mark has only once got as far 
as the quarter-final of the 
Federation Cup in 17 at- 
tempts, and Miss Vandborg is 
ranked 288 places below Miss 
Hobbs on the WTA computer. 

Even when Miss Hobbs 
failed to maintain a bright 
start, losing the second set 
after fighting back from 04 to 
54, Miss Durie should really 
have been able to force the 
Danes into the deciding dou- 
bles by beating Miss Scheuer- 
Larsen. 

Miss Durie, however, was 
in one of her most exasperat-

Hinault 
scales the 
Alps with 
LeMond 


From John WDcockson 
• AlpedUoez 

With a symbolic linking of 
aipis, Greg LeMond in the 
yellow jersey and hi* French 
team colleague, Bernard 
Hinault, crossed the finishing, 
line of yesterday^ 18th stage 
after the two best riders in this 
Tour de France had demon- 
strated their talents in a joint 
breakaway of more than 70 
miles. ■ 

This was the most spectacu- 
lar stage of the race, crossing 
the Gaiibier mid Croix de Per 
passes in view of countless 
alpine peaks resplendent ‘ in 
their canopies of snow on 
another brilliantly sunny day. 
It was a perfect setting For 

Hinault. 

He took tiie race by the 
scruff of its heck on the 
slaloming descent : of the 
Gaiibier in an attack with his 
Canadian team mate Steve 
Bauer.They were joined by 
LeMond, who was shadowing

Andrew Castle discovered 
that his new-found reputation 
counted for little on the 
opening day of the Prudential 
County Cup at Eastbourne 
yesterday. 

Castle, still recovering from 
his traumatic Davis Cup de- 
but against Australia at Wim- 
bledon last weekend, turned 
out for Somerset in Group 1 of 
the competition, but was pow- 
erless to prevent the holders 
Essex from cruising to a 
comfortable win in their best 
of nine doubles contest. 

Castle and his partner Paul 
French won their opening 


rubber, but then went down to 
the useful blend of youth and 
experience offered by the Es- 
sex second pair of David 
-Lloyd and Stephen Botfidd. 

Essex still hope to have 
John Lloyd available to rein- 
force their team before the end 
of the week. Lloyd had more 
treatment on bis injured 
shoulder yesterday morning.

holders Surrey made an im-

so well to the crowds in the 
tiny stadium of Cottbus last 
year was somewhat dissipated 
in the grandiose surroundings 
of the Olympic Stadium. But 
that is barely a criticism. The 
Greeks earned off this first 
world j unior championship as 
well as they did the European 
senior event four years ago. 
And it is all good practice for 
the centenary Olympic 
Games, which will doubtless 
be awarded to Athens in 1996. 
That is, if there is still an 
Olympic movement by then. 

Andreas Papandreou, the 
Greek prime minister, has 
recendy proposed to the Unit- 
ed Nations that an Olympic 
truce, as was observed during 
the ancient Olympic Games, 
be introduced for the duration 
of the modern evenL It is a 
feint hope. 


John Emburey, the Middle- 
sex off spinner, is out of 
England's team for the first 
Corah ill Test against New 
Zealand at Lord's on Thurs- 


day after breaking bis nose 
during a John Flayer Special 
League match at Derby on 
Sunday. Emburey was taken 
to Derbyshire Royal Infirma- 
ry for X-rays after deflecting a 
toll from Alan Warner into 


bis face. He later returned, his 
broken nose having been re- 
set and kepi in place with a 
plaster, but after seeing a 
specialist yesterday it was 
decided that he would have an 


operation tomorrow. 



who won the fourth stage two 
weeks ago. 

On a hairpin bend Zimmer- 
mann almost crashed, losing 
50 yards and dropping back to 
a group of 11 chasers. They 
included fourth placed Robert 
Millar, who was having prob- 
lems with his breathing. He 
explained: “I have a throat 
infection and I had no 
strength.” 

Millar had sprinted to take 
fourth (dace on the Gaiibier 
but at the next climb, after 50 
miles, was left behind. He had 
lost almost -20^ minutes by the 
finish; dropped four places 
overall and lost his leadership 
of the King 'of die Mountains 
competition. 

Up front, Hinault and 
LeMond got rid of Bauer and 
Ruiz-Cabestany. Sharing the 
pace, they rode together .for 
the remaining 5 1 miles, know- 
ing they were assuring them- 
selves of ' first and second 
places overalL 

Zimmennann broke clear of 
his group approaching the 
steepest part of the Croix de 
Fer climb, and had closed the 
gap 2 mins and 50 seconds by 
the crowd-packed crest Bnt he 
lost time on the long descent 
and was almost five minutes 
behind by the final and most 
difficult ascent of the tour, the 
infamous Alpe d’Huezi He

Another eight riders’ left foe 
race yesterday including Petra 
Delgado, fifth overnight, who 


was dropped with Millar, and 
retired. His 59-year bid broth- 
er had died suddenly the 
previous night and although 
his family urged him to con- 
tinue, the Spaniard did not 
have the enthusiasm.
