Murdoch, said was the final

The National Graphical

and the smallest group, the 
Amalgamated Engineering

votes to 56. 

News International's man-

rates for

to rise by up to 20 per cent for 
owners of small cars insured

motor insurers in the country. 

But owners oflarge ears face 
a reduction of up to 20 per 
cent in their motor premiums 
following a review b\ GRE of 
accident claims 3mong its one 
million customers. 

The move, which lakes 
effect from July !. is pan of a 
general increase in motor 
premiums by insurance com- 
panies which is likely to reach 
about 15 percent this year. 

Ro>al Insurance is putting 
up its motor rates by 6 percent

and frequency of claims 

A numberof factore are said 
to explain this, including 
cheaper oil encouraging more 
driving, the decline in public 
transport, the poor quality of 
the roads and a fall in the 
standard of driving. 

The change will mean an 
increase of OO to £123 a year

Mr Colin Sampson, of the 
West Yorkshire police, is to 
lead the second stage of the 
inquiry which was previously 
headed by Mr John Stalker, 
aged 47. the deputy Chief 
Constable of Greater Man- 
chester. who has been ordered 
to lake extended leave while 
an alleged serious disciplinary 
offence against him is invest- 

The moves were disclosed 
yesterday amid a growing 
conviction among Mr Stal- 
ker's friends, colleagues, and 
some politicians that he has 
been the victim of a smear 
campaign to prevent him 
completing his inquiry. 

Yesterday Mr Stalker took 
the unusual step of calling a 
press conference to protest his 
innocence of any disciplinary 
offence, in particular claims 
which centre around his long- 
standing friendship with a 
Manchester businessman. He 
also complained that he had 
still not been told the details of 
the allegations against him. 

Mr Stalker appeared under 
strain and protested against 
the ordeal that his family were 
suffering because of the inqui- 
ry and the unspecified charges. 

Later the Police Complaints 
Authority announced that “in 
the interests of natural 
justice". Mr Sampson had 
taken the unusual step of 
arranging to see Mr Stalker on 
Monday to brief him on the 
information in his possession. 

It had been rumoured that 
the West Yorkshire chief con- 
stable would succeed Mr 
Stalker, who began his inqui-

over ‘shoot to kill’ 

From Richard Ford in Belfast 

Mr Stalker headed a team of 
eight detectives who spent 16 
months investigating allega- 
tions that RUC undercover 
officers operated a “shoot to 
kill" policy in Co Armagh 
during the autumn of 1982. 

Five unarmed Republican 
terrorists and a nationalist 
youth were shot dead in three 
separate shooting incidents in 
the space of two months as the 
RUC came under enormous 
pressure because of escalating 
violence in the county. 

The deaths of the terrorists 
and the youth, discovered 
with a World War One weap- 
on. were carried out by a 

sophisticated undercover sur- 
veillance team of officers 
trained by the SAS in “fire- 
power. speed and aggression." 

The officers were trained to 
shoot al the trunk and were 
armed with pump action shot- 
guns, machine pistols. Ruger 
rifles and Sterling machine 
guns. They travelled in un- 
marked police cars. 

The killings brought alarm 
to the nationalist community 
whose leaders allege that the 
security forces were operating 
the “shoot to kill" policy.

Owen more isolated on 
defence policy as 
Steel prepares rebuke 

Dr David Owen, leader of 
the Social Democratic Party, 
seemed increasingly isolated 
.yesterday in the debate over 
. Alliance defence policy, 

. His Liberal opposite num- 
ber. Mr David Steel, prepared 
.to rebuke him for rocking the 
; boat and his own party's 
president. Mrs Shirley Wil- 
liams. aligned herself with his 
opponents m the debate. 

• Mr Steel was yesterday pre- 
paring to say in several week- 
-end statements that nobody 
should allow policy disagree- 
ments to get in the way of the 
.excellent relations between 
members of the two parties at 
local level. 

.' Mr Steel feels that the 
conduct of the defence debate 
■will be a test of the .Alliance’s 
ability to make a success of 
■coalition government With- 
. pul naming Dr Owen, the 
implicit criticism will be dear. 

Dr Owen himself suggested 
. that the disageement was no 
more than "a difference of 
. emphasis”. 

■ Speaking on radio from 
.Bonn, he said that there was 
-prill enough rime before the 

next election to resolve “these 
very deep and important 
’issues". But he insisted that 

■ the dedsion was one that 
could not be escaped. 

■- Mrs Williams based her 
intervention in the controver- 
sy on her own interpretation 
of the SDFs policy document 

By George HUi 

on defence, adopted last year. 

Her reading of its references 
to the problem of choosing a 
successor to the Polaris mis- 
sile conflicts with Dr Owen’s 
blunt assertions that Britain 
should remain a nuclear state. 

“It does not follow that 
what the leader says is the 
same and identical with the 
policy of the party," Mrs 
Williams said in a radio 

“1 think he is worried that 
the report of the commission 
may possibly fudge an issue be 
thinks should not be fudged. 
That is a matter on which he is 
perfectly entitled to have his 
say, but does not necessarily 
represent the views of the rest 
of the party." 

A joint S DP-Liberal com- 
mission on defence, due to 
report next week, is under- 
stood to have agreed that a 
firm decision on whether there 
should be a successor to the 
Polaris missile should be 

Dr Owen has made it clear 
that he thinks the Alliance 
would make itself a laughing- 
stock if it fought the next 
election without having decid- 

“The present policy of the 
SDP is that the party is willing 
to replace Polaris under cer- 
tain circumstances but not 
irrevocably committed to do- 
ing so," Mrs Williams said.

Hurd looking for 
spending balance 

By Richard Evans, Political Correspondent 

• Mr Douglas Hurd. Home 
Secretary, last night joined the 
intense Cabinet debate about 
jhe need for tax cuts or higher 
public spending by advocating 
a balanced ticket 
In a speech to party workers 
in Nottingham he said the 
British people naturally want- 
ed a decent standard ofliving 
for themselves, but also 
wished for good schools and 
hospitals, help for the disabled 
and safety on the streets. 
“They want a balance between 
the two: they expect the 
-Government to strike such a 
-balance." he said. 

2 While he accepted that the 
(eve! of taxation remained too 
high he said the basic rate of 
Income tax was at 1 its lowest 
Since the last war. The growth 
fn earnings of people at work 
and in Britain's national pros r 
perity had recently muted the 

demand for reductions in the I 
level of tax. ' 

“The recent local elections 
revealed concern about the 
quality of some public ser- 
vices which the Government 
will need to weigh carefully in 
the coming consideration of 
our national public spending 

“As people become person- 
ally better off their expecta- 
tions of services naturally rise 
loo and we need to take this 
into account." 

He said the public expendi- 
ture round would be crucial in 
showing the public that the 
Government was responsive 
to their concerns. 

“We should continue to aim 
at a further reduction in the 
level of taxation. But many of 
our supporters will be looking 
for us to strike a balance, in 
terms of the realities of 1986."

set terms 
on GCSE 

Leaders of the National 
Union of Teachers yesterday 
offered to drop die union’s 
boycott of the proposed GCSE 
examination provided three 
conditions were met. 

The union’s executive said 
if Mr Kenneth Baker. Secre- 
tary of State for Education and 
Science, was prepared to pro- 
vide enough new money for 
the examination in 1986-87, 
continue discussion on future 
funding, and allow additional 
time for training and plan- 
ning. it would advise its 
members to co-operate on its 

The union and the National 
Association of 

Schoolmasters/Union of 
Women Teachers, the two 
biggest leaching unions, have 
been maintaining boycotts of 
preparation for the GCSE 
because, they say, it is being 
rushed and underfunded. 

In its statement, the NUT 
said it still believed the exami- 
nation should be postponed 
but said implementation on 
the three-part package “would 
go some way towards meeting 
the very real demands of 
teachers and parents". 

• The Government had 
been “hard and 
uncompromising" in its evi- 
dence to the committee of 
inquiry into Scottish teachers’ 
pay. Mr John Pollock, general 
secretary of the Educational 
Institute of Scotland, said 
yesterday at Oban. They had 
no option but to intensify 
their action. 

made in the light of disarma- 
ment negotiations and the 
views of our allies." 

Mrs Williams’s claim rests 
on an ambiguity in the 1985 
document, formulated with 
great care to be acceptable to 
the party's nuclear and anti- 
nuclear factions. 

After an outright declara- 
tion that the party “would not 
abandon Britain's existing 
nuclear capability and are 
willing to replace Polaris", it 
adds: “A dedsion over any 
replacement will be taken in 
the light of disarmament nego- 
tiations and the views of our 

It is open to dispute whether 
the “dedsion" to be taken will 
be one over which weapon 
should be chosen to replace 
Polaris when it becomes obso- 
lete in the 1 990s. or whether to 
replace it at alL 

Those who interpret party 
policy in the same way as Mrs 
Williams are confident that 
they represent the feelings of 
the majority in the party, 
although they concede that a 
number of members strongly 
share Dr Owen’s view. 

Their implication is that the 
split in the Alliance is less 
betweeen its component par- 
ties than between Dr Owen, 
with some adherents, and the

Delays for

Children with cancer are 
having their admission for 
treatment postponed because 
of a shortage of beds at 
specialist paediatric cancer 
units in London, cancer spe- 
cialists said yesterday. 

Simon Parker, aged six, 
who was found hi be suffering 
from lymphoma sax weeks ago 
was salt home on Wednesday 
what he arrived at the Royal 
Marsden Hospital in Sutton 
for the third stage in his 
treatment. He was admitted 
for treatment yesterday. 

His father, Mr David 
Parker, a sales representative, 
of Ashstead, Surrey, said: 
"They told ns that the unit was 
100 per cent toll, 

"It is terribly distressing. I 
can anderataml delays in treat- 
ment for varicose veins, but 
when yon have a boy with 
cancer, I really think tint is 
going a bit for. If we cannot 
treat cancer on time, what can 
we treat?" 

Dr Simon Meller, the con- 
sultant paediatrician in charge 
of the case, said: “Our 14-bed 
unit Is constantly full, and I 
am afraid it is common for 
children to have their treat- 
ment delayed for a day or two. 

“It happens every week. 
Often parents come up and we 
have to say “just lung around 
and we may be able to create a 
bed for your child’. They wait 
around and then we have to 
say *sorry we have not got a 
bed today, get in touch with ns 

“It is usually only a day or 
two’s delay and it is not 
pairing the child at risk. If we 
got to the stage where we were 
delaying treatment by a week 
or more then I would be 
seriously concerned. 

“We are not in the position 
where we are compromising

Controversial inquiry 
over ‘shoot to kill’ 

The Commons energy select 
committee yesterday denied a 
report in The Times stating it 
was planning a thorough in- 
vestigation into Britain’s 
nuclear industry in the wake 
of the Chernobyl disaster. 

"The committee has no 
present plans to undertake an 
inquiry into the nuclear 
industry it reported. 

“It reserves its position on 
whether, after the publication 
ofthe inspector’s report on the 
Sizewell B inquiry, it may take 


evidence on the implications 
of the conclusions of that 
report and any related issue 
which may arise." 

It also denied there had 
been "feuding" between the 
energy and environment se- 
lect committees.

the environment committee’s 
conclusions it would be in a 
report which was the result of 
careful accumulation and con- 
sideration of evidence," it

tough RUC action was de- 
signed to pacify unionists in 
the wake of Provisional Sinn 
Fein’s electoral success in 
elections to the Northern Ire- 
land Assembly. 

The inquiry by Mr Stalker 
was ordered by Sir John 
Hermon, RUC Chief Consta- 
ble. who received the interim 
report and its findings last 
August and passed it on to Sir 
Barry Shaw, Northern 
Ireland’s Director of Public 
Prosecutions in February. 

It is understood to have 
identified at least seven fig- 
ures who it believes could be 
charged with offences ranging 
from conspiracy to pervert the 
course of justice to conspiracy 
to murder. 

The report is highly CTitical 
of the lack of supervision of 
the undercover teams. Mr 
Stalker's inquiry and its find- 
ings have been deeply resent- 
ed by some RUC officers, who 
argued that he did not under- 
stand the pressures of long 
hours and the danger under 
which the force operated. 

Yesterday Mr Seamus 
Mai Ion, Social Democratic 
and Labour Party MP for 
Newry and Armagh, alleged 
that there wa& something 
“more sinister" to Mr, 
Stalker's suspension and his , 
return at a time when he was 1 
investigating the conduct of 
certain RUC officers. 

Mr Mallon said that Mr 
Stalker “could be the fall-guy < 
for the whole thing. I believe 
there are other forces at work ! 
and they are at work to try and 
protect people who have been i 
involved in a serious incident :

Mr Mallon, in whose con- 
stituency one of the shooting 
incidents occured, said the 
suspension was “too much of 
a coincidence" and that an 
attempt was being made to 
discredit him in a mean and 
petty way."

yesterday: “We are the alleged 
accused. We cannot under any

Violent crime rises by 
72 % in ten years 
as clear-up rate falls 

By Peter Evans, Home Affairs Correspondent 

Violent crime is rising in 
spite of a higher proportion of 
adult male offenders being 
jailed and clear-up rates are; 
falling, according to a Home 
Office research study pub-, 
iished yesterday. 

Crimes of personal violence 
recorded by police rose by 
72 per cent between W74 and 
1984. from 89.599 to 154,268, 
compared with a 69 per cent 
rise of all recorded crime. 

The report says that sen- 
tencing changes may reflect a 
general feeling that more se- 
vere penalties were necessary. 

At the same lime the use by 
the courts of higher levels of 
incarceration, an expensive' 
way of dealing with offenders, 
which was not notable for 
discouragmgxeofTending, ~sits 
uneasily with such objectives . 
as economy, effectiveness and 
value for money”. 

■ The number of woundings 
and assaults recorded almost 
doubled between 1974 and 
1984 and robbery almost tre- 
bled. Rape increased by more 
than a third. While homicide 
figures fluctuate year by year a 
comparison of 1971-74 with 

Taki claim 

Mrs Rosemarie Marcie- Ri- 
viere. a wealthy socialite, was 
-destroyed” by an article 
which, she claims, branded 
her a “high class laii”, the 
High Court in London was' 
told yesterday. 

Mrs Marrie- Riviere’s fifth 
and present husband. Mr Jean 
Pierre Mancie-Riviere, a bank- 
er. was giving evidence on the 
third day of his wife’s libel 
action against The Spectator 
and its gossip columnist, Mr 
Taki Theodoracopuios- 

He said that the article, 
published in August 1982, was 
sent to the couple by Taki with 
an accompanying letter which 
labelled him a “catamite”, 
defined as a boy kept for 
unnatural or sexually pervert- 
ed purposes, or homosexual 
practices. . . : 

Mr Marrie-Riviere said that 
he was in such a state of shock 
when he read the letter that he ■ 
did not dare fcrseveraJ Jays to 
show it to his wife. 

He referred ip another arti- 
cle written by Taki in Septem- * 
her 1979. which he said was 
“nasty”, it had appealed after 
the couple's housewarming 
party at their home m Greece, 
which it labelled “the Pansy 

Mrs Marrie-Riviere, aged 
71. who lives in St Moritz. 
Switzerland, claims that the 
“cruel and malicious” article 
was written by Taki to get his 
revenge after she turned him 
away from a lunch party. 

Taki. the publishers of The 
Spectator . and Mr Alexander 
Chancellor, its former editor, , 
deny libelling Mrs Marrie- 
Riviere in Takfs “High Life” . 
column in August 1982. \ 

They plead justification and . 
are counter-claiming damages 1 
over an interview given by 
Mrs Marcie-Riviere to . 
H omen ’s Wear Daily in Octo- ! 
ber 1982. 

The bearing was adjourned 
until Monday. 

198 1-84 shows a rise of 17 per. 

Comparing 1984 with 1974, 
3.000 more of the most serious 
offences of personal .violence ; 
were recorded, with half of the ' 
increase due to the.- rise in 
armed robbery. • 

The percentage of males 
a ged 2 1 and over convicted of 
homicide and receiving a cus- 
todial sentence rose from 83 in 
1979 td 90 in 1984. For 
wounding and endangering 
life the equivalent rise was 
from 74io-83 percent and for 
rape h was from 93 to 96 per 

-For males of 21 and over 
convicted of robbery and re- 
ceiving a custodial sentence, 
the figure rose froth 86 to 
90 percent. 

The overall dear-up rate for 
recorded offences of violence 
against the person fell from 
80 per cent in 1974 to 74 per 
cent in 1 984: The report says a 
sharp decline is noticeable m 
the clear-up rate for robbery, 
from 40 per cent in 1974 to 
22 per cent in 1984. 

Without diminishing the 

seriousness of the figures, the 
report says that under 5 per 
cent of offences recorded by 
- police in 1984 involved per- 
sonal violence. 

The report, by Mr Roy 
Walmsley. is part of continu- 
ing research which will be 
available at a further confer- 
ence on crime prevention at 
No TO on June 23. !t wifi be 
chaired by Mr Douglas Hurd, 
Home Secretary, and the 
Prime Minister is expected to 
be there. 

Two of five working groups 
will focus on violence, one of 
them in relation to licensed 

Mr Walmsley s report for 
the Home Office Research 
. and Planning Unit says that 
changes in opening hours 
“might reduce both the ten- 
dency towards heavy drinking 
as dosing time approaches 
and also the tendency for large 
numbers of people to leave 
such establishments at about 
the same time”.

Set aside emotion, 
bomb jury is told 

A jury at the Central Crimi- 
nal Court was told yesterday 
not to make Patrick Magee a 
scapegoat for the IRA bomb 
-attack on the Grand Hotel at. 

Mr Justice Borebam, begin- 
ning his summing-up in the 
trial of Magee, who is accused 
of planting the bomb which 
killed five people during the 
1984 Conservative Party con- 
ference, instructed the jury to 
set asideemotion when it fried 
to reach verdicts next week. 

“h has been suggested that 
you might be induced, thr- 
ough emotion, simply to find 
a scapegoat, never mind the 
evidence”, the judge said. 

“Bui you won't do that - it 
would be more enormous than 
the crime that was committed 
at Brighton itself.” 

Magee, aged 35, is accused 
of planting the 24-day delay

Sheene hits at TT dangers 

By John Goodbody, Sports-News Correspondent 

Barry Sheene, the former 
world motor-cycling champi- 
on, yesterday criticized the 
dangers of (he TT races on the 
Isle of Man, which this week 
saw the 139th death on the 
mountainous circuit since 

Sheene, who led the riders' 
protest in 1976 which caused 
the event to he discarded from 
the World Grand Prix Cham- 
pionship, was reacting to the 
death of Gene McDonnell, 
who was killed on Wednesday 
when his machine hit a run- 
away horse while he was 
exceeding 100 mph. 
McDonnell's death was the 
third on the circuit in the past . 

“The purist says that it is a 
true test of man and machine. .

Now I do .not think hitting a

among (he event's followers, 
who speed round the circuit 
between races. Exact figures 
are not available, but one 
police chief inspector esti- 
mates that about three specta- 
tors die for every competitor 

The response to Sheene's 
remarks was immediate yes- 
terday. Charlie Williams, nine 
times winner,- said: “It is 
insulting. Sheene is calling u$ 
idiots — not only us, but also 
Mike Hailwood, GeofT Duke, 

and other legendary names. 
He used to race at Scarbor- 
ongh, which 1 believe is more 
dangerous than the TT, and he 
did not tolerate criticism. He 

should keep his mouth shot 

. and mind his own business.” 

Sheene emphasized that he 
did not think the TT should be 
banned. “Riders can do what 
they want to d& It is their life. 

I only raced there once, in 
1971, when I was lying second 
. in the world championships 
and bad to go there for the

But some works team rulers 
are forced to race in the TT 
- because it is part of their 
agreement. Sheene has Utile 
sympathy for them. “The

The other defendants are: 
Gerard McDonnel. aged 34, 
Peter Sherry, aged 30; Martina 
Anderson, aged 23; and EUa 
OT>wyer. aged 26. All plead 
not guilty. . 

The judge said the trial was 
important because of the enor- 
mity -of the crimes alleged. 

“The approach here should 
be the same as it would be in 
anycriminal case, namely that 
you take a quiet. -calm, clear 
took at the evidence.” 

He reminded them of the 
presence of the statue of 
justice on the roof of the 
Central Criminal Court. i 

“She is blindfolded not 
because a jury should be blind : 
when they are looking at the 
evidence. She is blindfolded 
so she takes no account of 
race, creed, colour or political 
persuasions, or nationalities.” 

The trial was adjourned 
until Monday.

Joint hunt 
to find 

By Stewart Tendler 
Crime Reporter 

The head of Surrey Cl D was 
yesterday named as the co- 
ordinator of a join! investiga- 
tion into the murder of two 
women in London and Surrey. 

Dei Chief Supt Vincent 
McFadden will link investiga- 
tions into the murders which 
may be connected to multiple 
rapes in north London and the 
disappearance of a young 
woman near a railway station 
in Hertfordshire. 

Officers from Scotland 
Yard and Surrey police mei 
earlier this week to discuss the 
two murders and evidence 
from forensic scientists. 

Police believe there are 
links between the murder of 
Alison Day. aged 19. whose 
body was found in Hackney, 
east London, just after Christ- 
mas. and Maartje Tamboezer. 
aged 16. murdered in April ut 
West Horsley. Surrey. 

The two victims were both 
attacked from behind, sexual- 
ly assaulted, bound and even- 
tual^ strangled. Miss Day had 
travelled to a station near by 
before vanishing, and Miss 
Tamboezer was attacked near 
a station. 

The man is described as 
white, between 5 ft 7 in and 
5 ft 10 in tall, wearing training 
shoes, jeans and a blue anorak. 

Detectives are also aware 
that Mrs Anne Lock, aged 29, 
who vanished last month 
three weeks after her marriage, 
was on her way to a local 
railway station in Hertford- 

The railway link has also led 
police to look at the records 
built up by Operation Hart, 
the north London investiga- 
tion into 27 rapes and assaults 
in north and west London. 
The attacks were the work of 
two men working together or 
singly. A number of their 
victims were attacked near 
stations or lines including one 
used by Miss Day. , i

Dogfighting ‘sport’ is 
moving across Britain 
leaving a cruel trail 

The “sport" of dogfighting 
is spreading in secret locations 
throughout Britain at a such a 
pace that the Royal Society for 
the Prevention of Cruelty to 
Animals believes it is now 
confronting a “national dog- 
fighting machine". 

Illegal dogfighting or dog 
baiting matches involving 
half-starved American pit bull 
terriers, the favourite dogs of 
war. tearing each other to 
pieces in makeshift arenas, 
have become regular enter- 
tainment for their followers 
.Their popularity has risen 
during the past two years, 
spreading a cruel trail right 
across the country and leaving 
no region untouched, accord- 
ing to an RSPCA team of 
special investigators who have 
been working on the fighting 
rings for more than seven 

Last July the first court case 
involving dogfighting in Brit- 
ain this century brought to 
light the brutality of this arena 

But most dogfighting re- 
mains undetected, protected 
by a “Mafia" involved in the 
dogfighting pits, where thou- 
sands of pounds change hands 
on the results of the contests, 
the RSPCA special investiga- 
tor. Chief Supt Frank Milner, 
said yesterday in Horsham. 

And yesterday, two men 
were jailed and four others 
fined a total of £1.900 by 
Redbridge magistrates for 
their involvement in dogfight- 
ing ataschooL 

The incident was said to 
have taken place at Alder- 

sbrook Primary School in 
Wanstead. east London. 

The school caretaker who 
allegedly organized the fight. 
Alexander Funk, aged 29, of 
lngatestone Road. Wanstead. 
was jailed for three months for 
allowing the school to be used 
for dogfighting. He was also 
banned from keeping a dog for 
five years. 

Raymond Heather, aged 26. 
unemployed, of Hacking. 
Maidstone. Kent, was jailed 
for two months and also 
banned from keeping a dog for 
five years for assisting and 
aiding and abetting the 

Peter Preston, aged 44, a 
businessman, of Friskney, 
Boston, Lincolnshire, was 
fined £1.000, with £75 costs, 
and banned from owning a 
dog for five years for aiding 
and abetting dog fighting. 

Craig NutiaU, aged 23, un- 
employed, of Dane Street, 
Middlewich, Cheshire, and 
Keith Ravenscrofl, aged 26, 
unemployed, of Long Lane, 
also Middlewich. were each 
fined £350 with £75 costs for 
aiding and abetting. 

The sixth man, Martin 
Kennedy, aged 21, of Booth 
Lane, Middlewich, was fined 
£200 for aiding and abetting. 

Only Heather and Kenn- 
erley admitted offences. 

The court was told that 
police were called to the 
school one Sunday last Octo- 
ber and found a dead dog in a 
plastic bag in a boilerhouse. 

“It was an American pit bull 
terrier, still warm to the touch 
and therefore only recently 

killed." Mr Giles Forrester, 
for the prosecution, said. 

He described the dogfight as 
“no more and no less than 
organized brutality" and said 
it had taken place in an area 
surrounding the children's 
swimming pool which was 
stained with dogs* blood 

A post-mortem examina- 
tion showed that the dog bad 
died from internal bleeding as 
a result of being attacked by a 
another dog. 

Mr Forrester said several 
bull terriers were found in 
Funk’s garden, along with 
weighing scales and tre- 

Funk, who denied allowing 
the school to be used for 
dogfighting and assisting dog- 
fighting, said he had no idea 
how the American pit bull 
terrier died at the school on 
the day he claimed he was 
holding a puppy sale. 

Preston, who represented 
himself, had told the court he 
came to the school to buy a 
puppy. He met a professional 
dognghter there and gave him 
a lift. 

The League Against Cruel 
Sports has awarded £1,000 to 
Mrs Madeleine Jenkins, who 
lives near the school, for 
providing evidence which led 
to the convictions. 

Attempts to stiffen the law 
against dogfights are being 
made in the Commons by Mr 
Harry Greenway, Conserva- 
tive MP for Ealing. North. 

He described the Redbridge 
court verdicts as inadequate 
“for such loathsome, barbaric 
and violent behaviour". 

Woman faces 
charge of 
taking baby 

A woman aged 19 was 
remanded in custody for a 
week yesterday accused of 
abducting a baby who was 
seven hours old from St 
Mary's Hospital, Manchester. 

Miss Christina O'NeilL un- 
employed, of no fixed address, 
appeared before magistrates at 
Manchester charged with ab- 
ducting Scot Higginson from 
the maternity unit on Wednes- 
day night. The baby was later 
found safe and well 

Miss O'Neill made no appli- 
cation for bail and reporting 
restrictions were not lifted.

takes issue with several otter

Algae with the sense to beat sunburn 

By JndyRedfearn 

As summer approaches you 
may notice toe surface of a 
stagnant pond in a garden or 
countryside suddenly become 
covered in a greeofch, or 
btnmsh, bloom s o m etime in 
ntidsnmmer. Every morning, 
the bloom is definitely there 
bat in toe a fte rnoon it is gone. 

The Moom is a sense growth 
of algae. Pro fe ssor Anthony 
Wafshy and Ms coDeagnes in 
the botany department at 
Bristoal University hare foimd 
that these relatively simple 
organisms make use of a 
complex mechanism to alter 
their buoyancy, and tins their 
depth below a water surface, in 
response to changing

photosynthesize, bat not so 
much that they “get smtbnrn,"

mtensity moeasm throughout 
the day. 

But bow do they "knew 
how 1 * to move up and down at 
the appropr iate times? Most 
cells sink because their con- 
stituents — proteins, carbohy- 
drates and fets — are heavier 
than water. The algae would 
be no exception had they not 
evolved special stru c tur e s, 
called gas vesicles, to keep 
them buoyant. 

The vesides are small cylin- 
drical structures, filled with 
gas, whose walls are made of 
long strands of protein wound 
dosely together like toe coils 
of a compressed spring. Each 
cell contains dusters of toe 

The algae. Professor 
Walsby has food, mate use 
of three different 

to alter their buoyancy. The 
simplest involves increasing 
the proportion of solid matter 
to gas vetide, tons making the 
ceUsso dense that they sink. 

This will happen as a matte - 
at course when toe algae 
photosynthesize to produce 
carbohydrates. When they 
have used up their carbohy- 
drate store, they will then 
become more buoyant and 
float to the surfece again. . 

But sometimes that mecha- 
nism is am enough to allow toe 
algae to sink fast enough. 
They also need to collapse 
some of then gas vesicles. 

Algae toat live near toe water

increasing the pressures with- 
in their cells until some of toe 
vesides collapse. The mecha- 
nism seems to be switched en

Channel Tunnel Bill 

Fillibuster stops censure move 


The Labour MP Mr Tam 
Dalyell was denied the 
opportunity of making a spe ech 
in the Commons chamber in 
which he intended to attack the 
conduct of the Prime Minister- 
when Conservative 

backbenchers talked through 
the night on the handling of the 
Channel Tonnd Bill. ' 

Friday's business in the 
House was lost as a result of 
what Mr Peter Shore, shadow 
Leader of the House, called a 
disgraceful and squalid 
manoeuvre to prevent his 
colleague from speaking. 

Mr DalyeN (Linlithgow) bad 
planned to attack Mrs Thatcher 
on the Westland affair, the 
Falklands and the US bombing 
of Tripoli after drawing first 
place in the ballot for private 
members' motions to be 
discussed in the day's sitting. 

Late on Thursday night after 
the Channel Tunnel Bill had 
been given a second reading by 
309 votes to 44 — Government 
majority. 265 — Labour MPs 
protested that Conservative 
MPs were plan n mg' a filibuster. 
Mr David WinSck (Walsall 
North. Lab) said it had been 
reported that Mr. Kenneth 
Hind (West Lancashire, Q had 
seat a letter to quite a large 
number of Conservative MPs 
urging them to ' filibuster in 
order to ensure there was no 
platform for Mr Datyefl. 

Tbe word filibuster had been 
used by Mr Hind. He said in 
the letter “If tlx debate went 
ahead ft would give Opposition 
MPs a platform to anack the 
Prime Minister". 

Have we (Mr Winnick asked) 
readied the stage where an MP 
cannot move a motion he has 
won in a ballot because ft 
would embarrass the Prime 

Mr Shore unsuccessfully 
sought an explanation from Mr 
John Biffen, Leader of the 
House, as to how much he 
knew of the manoeuvre and 
asked him to condemn it. 

Conservative backbenchers, 
notably Mr Donates Hogg 
(Grantham) then joined in with 
lengihy points of order before 
debate began just before 1 1pm 
on the motion committing the 
Channel Tunnel Bill to a select 
committee which will' hear 
petitions against ibe scheme. 

Fourteen Conservative 
backbenchers spoke m the long 
hours before MPs began to 
wander back into the chamber 
shortly after 7. am. Mr David 
Mitchell, Minister of State for 
Transport, kept i bis 
contributions brief and ' Mr 
Simon Hughes (Southwark and 
Bermondsey. L) also spoke; 

There was a plea made at 
about S am oh a point of order 
by Mr Cedi Franks (Barrow 
and Furness. Q whose, debate 
would have followed Mr 
Dalyell's. He said he 
understood that Mr Dalyell 
had boobed a room in the 
House of Commons 'for 9 JO 

am where be intended to make 
to the media the speech he 
should and would have made 
to the House of Commons. 

If that should be the case (be 
said) I feel tt must surely be a 
contempt of this House that a 
speech which should be made 
to this House, and could 
possibly be made, is proposed 
to be made to the media. 

Sir Paid .Dean, a deputy 
speaker, ' replied that private 
meetings in die House bad 
nothing to do with the Chair. 

A number of divisions were 
forced on amendments to the 
motion but none attracted 
more than a handful of votes 
against the Government 
proposals. Mr MHcbeB did; 
however, accept two 
amendments moved by Mr 
Leon Brittan, the former Home 
Secretary, which put back the 
deadline for receving petitions 
against the Bill from 
individuals from June 17 to 
June 27. 

The select committee bearing 

Share: Disgraceful and 
squalid manoeuvre • 

the. petitions will consist of 
nine MPs to be nominated by 
the Committee of Selection. 

Mr Mitchell .said the 
Government expected there 
would be a large number of. 
individual petitioners but felt 
confident the House authorities 
could cope. 

Mr Jonathan Aitikea (South 
Thanet, C), who opposes the 
tunnel, warned the 
Government of the anger of the 
people of Kent and said they 
would petition in unexpected 
and unprecedented numbers. 

• The spectre of armed French 
gendarmes patrolling on the 
British side of the tunnel was 
raised by Mr Althea. He said 
the Kent polioe and the Kent 
people would not like it but the 
French authorities insisted on 
their gendarmes being armed. 

If there is going to a French 
right to keep a gendarme on 
British soil (he said). I- think 
the committee may need to 
send for the bead of the 
gendarmerie in Paris. 

The committee may need to 
see the instructions and 
authorities given to the police 
about when they may use their 
arms and in -what 
circum sunces. 

Mr Aftkep was supporting an 
Opposition amendment. 

resisted by Mr Mitchell which 
would have enabled the 
committee to send for persons, 
papers and records. 

Mr Mitchell said this power 
had never been given to a 
select committee on a hybrid 
bill (which the Channel Tunnel 
Bill is). The function of the 
committee was not to conduct 
a genera] investigation but to 
protect the rights of people 
affected by the project. 

• The last stages of the all- night 
sitting were taken up with 
discussion of the money resolu- 
tion on the BiU, when Conser- 
vative MPs e x press e d concern 
that there was an intimation 
that in the event .of the private 
companies being imable to com- 
plete the tunnel the Govern- 
ment would be given powers 
under the resolution, to pick op 
the tab. 

Mr Mitchell said if the project 
failed during construction, the 
Government would be able to 
maintain the workings in ex- 
actly the same way they had 
done with the old 1973 work- 
ings. If the project felled ft 
would be mothballed. But he 
did not anticipate it. 

The whole premise on which 
the Government had supported 
this- project was that it was 
satisfied that the requirements 
in financial terms laid on the 
concessionaire would ensure 
completion could take place 
without there being any reason 
that it would fen to do so. 

He told Conservative MPs 
concerned that if the project 
faded the French might try to 
nationalize the tunnel that- the' 
company . structure 'and the 
agreement between Britain and 
the French would not allow that 
situation to arise. 

• Mr MftcheB, who had stayed 
np all night to put the 
Govern menus case on the BiU, 
received the praise of Mr John 
Moore, the Secretary of State for 
Transport, for his “exceptional 
performance of great stamina". 
Mr Mitchell said there bad been 
some talk last night ofa waffling 
debate to take up time, but 
during the night the House had 
addressed itself in a serious way 
to tite very important and 
detailed matters concerning the- 
Channel Tunnel project and the 
arrangements for the select

Commons chamber at 9 am to

on Thrusday's business were 
kept going aftet 9.30 am at 
which time "Mr Dalyell's Friday

in the -adjournment debate to

Mr Nisei Spearing (Newham 
South. Lab) said if the debate 
continued beyond 9.30 am then

Mr DalyriT-S motion, would be 

Mr Dennis Skinner (Bobover. 
Lab) said that during the 
course of the debate many 
bouts had been taken up in 
arguing whether the select 
committee should have nijie 
members or II. This was the 
first ocasson he could recall 
when the Government, in such 
circumstances, bad not moved 
a closure motion. That 
indicated that the filibuster was 
organized not only tty 
backbenchers but by the 
Government as well 
Mr Cedi Franks (Barrow and 
Furness, C) said he, like Mr 
Dalyell had an interest in 
Friday's business . but, unlike 
Mr skinner, he was present 
during the hours to which lie 
had referred and he recognized 
and accepted the sincerity Of 
MPs from Kent who argued 
their case. 

Mr Andrew Bennett (Denton 
and Reddish. Lab) said the 
Speaker, on his appointment, 
had made clear his 
responsibility to look after the 
rights of backbenchers. 

As Friday's business was on 
a private member's motion, 
what steps would the Speaker 
take to ensure time was found 
for backbenchers to exercise 
the rights conferred on them by 
the House, whether or net 
those rights were denied to 
them by Government ministers 
or backbenchers? The House 
had a duty to find time at 
another date for Mr Dalyell to 
. move his motion. X 

The Speaker (Mr Bernaad 
WeatheriU) confirmed that thfe 
House remained on Thursdays 
business and Friday's business 
could not. therefore, proceed. • 

It was perfectly true that an 
MP who won a place in the 
ballot had the right to put fiis 
motion.' provided it was 4k 
order, which this one was. add 
move ft! But the concern or the 
Chair was ■ to ensure the 
proceedings were in order. 

Although it might be true 
that some of the debates were 
rather long during the course of 
the night they were in order 
and he had no jurisdiction to 
go beyond that.

Blue collar workers could not

Howe vow 
to settle 
trade war 

From Richard Owen 

Sir Geoffrey Howe yester- 
day vowed that Britain would 
use its presidency of the EEC 
which begins next month, to 
find a negotiated solution to 
the European trade dispute 
with the united States. 

“We will .not solve this 
dispute by transatlantic name- 
calling." the Foreign Secretary 
told the America-European 
Community Association in 
The Hague. “When it comes 
to protectionism, neither side 
has a monopoly of virtue." 

The threatened trade war 
with foe US has arisen over 
Washington's claim that pref- 
erential trad# arrangements 
for Spain and Portugal, which 
joined the EEC at the ban- 
ning of the. year, discriminate 
against American agricultural 

Sir Geoffrey said that Span- 
ish aod Portugese accession 
bad not been easy for the 
Community itself. In an im- 
plied rebuke to Washington, 
be said that the economic 
burdens of enlargement were 
"a small price to pay for the 
infinitely greater benefit of 
having Spain and Portugal 
secure in the Western family 
of rations”. - 

He said the dispute should 
be resolved within the context 
of Gait, a new round of which 
opens ia Sepiemjjer.'^ *

China stalks space 
launch business 

From A Correspondent, Peking ' 

China could increase its 
satellite bundlings from one 
or two a year to as many as 12 
to meet worldwide demand, 
officials here said yesterday. 

In the wake of the shuttle 
disaster and the failure of a 
French Ariane rocket, China 
has been aggressively market- 
. log its Long March 3 rocket as 
a reliable satellite launcher. 

The Peking Retie* said 
recently that China was nego- 
tiating with 10 countries, is- 
d uding Britain. 

Officials hare said their fees 
would be 10 to 15 per cent 
cheaper than those of the US 
or French space agencies. 

“We sympathize with the 
US and Arianespace 
accidents," Mr Sun Jiadong, 
Vice-Minister of Astronautics, 
said. “We feel they can quick- 
ly upgrade their technology." 

Mr ' Shea Rongjtm, vice- 
president of the Commission 
of Science Technology Indus- 
try for National Defence, said 
ttet since 1970 rhina had 

launched 46-rockets which ted 
carried aloft 18 satellites, with 
only one failure. 

None of the officials at the 
briefing would elaborate on 
Chinese rocker failures. China 
has two satellites in geo- 
synchronous orbit and has 
recovered seven which went 
out of service, the officials 

Western space experts have 
said the US shuttle can carry 
payloads of up to 25,0001b, 
while the Long March 3. can 
carry only about 13001b. 

Mr Sun said ttet eventually 
the Long March 3 would be 
able to carry payloads of up to 
two-o&d-a-telf tons. 

Chinese' officials said 
Swedish roranuuricatioas sat- 
ellite to be deployed in 1988 
would be die first Western 
satellite to be put into orbit by 
Long March 3. They said 
three LIS companies ted been

will be their problem for the

, 'Under the' .concentrated 
gaze 6 f the world media 
Austrians have exposed many 
aspects of their character and 
their politics which decades of 
cultural diplomacy had 
skilfully' avoided airing; 

: Dr Waldheim's campaign 
ba$ hi g hl ig hted his and his 
country's ambivalent attitude 
to tte Nazi past, and with it a 
brafcen disregard for interna- 
tional opinion. But Dr Kurt 
Steyrer, his Socialist rival, has 
only underlined tbe inertia 
and' incompetence which pa- 
ralyses Austrian politics and 

-years the hallmark of Austrian 

The unfortunate Austrians 
who mnst choose between tte 
two have had to endure being 
branded a nation of corrupt 
bureaucrats and unrepentant 
;Nazis. jn tte first ballot last

.-. Tbe latest opinion polls give 
Dr -Waldheim a 3 par cent 
edge over Dr Steyrer. The 
news, widely publicized in 
Vienna yesterday, that tte 
, French Government was exer- 
cising its best brains to come 
up with a congratulatory tele- 
gram for Dr Waldheim, which 
would nofofiend Jewish opin- 
ion in France, has been dis- 
missed by. Waldheim 
supporters as a' canard. 

The Vienna Israeli Cultural 

)ias become in tte past few Community, * however, an- 

nounced yesterday that re- 
gardless of who won, they 
would not be sending their 
usual congratulatory telegram. 
A spokesman for tbe commu- 
nity, which iodudes'most of 
Austria’s Jews, said neither 
result could alter the feet that, 
for the first time since the 
Nazis, anti-Semitism had 
been used as a means to 
political ends. 

There can be do doubt that 
the accusations of tte World 
Jewish Congress have pro- 
voked a backlash of anti- 
Semitic feeling and, in 
Vienna, a noticeable hostility 
towards foreigners, particular- 
ly those representing the press. 
The protest of Frau Beale 
Klarsfeld, the anti-Nazi cam- 
paigner whose supporters 
have accompanied Dir Wald- 
heim ibis week, has provided 
another focus for this xeno- 
phobia. The hostility she and 
her group have encountered at 
political rallies was described 
as terrifying by her yesterday 
after police had intervened to 
prevent ter disrupting Dr 
Waldheim's closing campaign 
speech at Amstetten in Lower 

Austria. - 

To counter this 
unfavourable image of Aus- 
tria, hundreds of writers and 
artists held a rally in a Vienna 
theatre yesterday urging Aus- 
trians to vote for Dr Steyrer 
for the sake of their country. 

They pointed to tbe risk that 
Dr Waldheim may be banned 
from visiting foreign coun- 
tries. But the derision of the 
US Justice Department to 
delay until after ihe election a 
derision on whether he will be 
permitted to enter America 
has allowed many Austrians 
to dismiss these possibilities 
as unrealistic and foreign 

■ As reports of cancelled busi- 
ness contracts begin slowly to 
descend on the foreign and 
trade ministries’ desks in Vi- 
enna. it is only a question of 
time before Austrians begin to 
wake up to the full effects of 
ihe past months. . 

Whoever wins tomorrow’s 
election, there can be no doubt 
that the loser has been — and 
will be for some time to come 
— Austria.

Nazi spy’s 
coffin to 
be dug up 

The Hague (Reuter) — Po- 
lice scientists have teen or- 
dered to dig up the coffin of a 
Dutch Second World War 
traitor to try to end years of 
speculation that he faked sui- 
cide in 1946 and fled across 
the Atlantic. 

The headstone on the Rot- 
terdam grave bears the name 
of Christiaan LJndemans. who 
betrayed 250 resistance fight- 
ers to the Nazis and tried in 
vain to warn Germany of the 
1944 Allied attack at Arnhem. 

Researchers say ihe body 
may be that of a Palestinian 
shopkeeper, and Lindemans 
may have been smuggled to 
the US or South America. 

Other experts believe the 
' body is that of Lindemans but 
say marks on it will show he 
was murdered and did not die 
in a suicide, pact. 

Some say he may have been 
killed to prevent a scandal 
•which might have embar- 
rassed Prince Bernhard, hus- 
band of former Queen Juliana 
and wartime commander of 
the Dutch forces. 

The Rotterdam mayor. Mr 
Bram Peper. seeking to put an 
end to grisly theorizing, or- 
dered that grave to be opened 
on June 17 and the remains 

Lindemans was exposed as 
a. double agent in the final 
stages of the war. A Rotterdam 
garage mechanic, he joined the 
resistance in 1941 and helped 
fugitives escape from the Ger- 
mans through Belgium and 

He ' switched allegiance to 
■save the life of a brotiier and 
then began a series of betrayals 
which reached its high point 
when he alerted his Nazi 
spymaster to the para troop 
attack on a bridge at Arnhem. 

march for 
in Peking 

From A Correspondent 

More than 250 African and 
other foreign students 
marched for two hours 
through the streets of Peking 
yesterday to protest at : the 
harassment of 24 African stu- 
dents by more than .400 
Chinese students at : Tianjin 
university on May 24. 

“We ask for just one thing, 
that our safety be guaranteed 
. in. China," a spokesman for 
the marchers said. • 

Tte students gathered-ai the 
Peking Foreign Languages In- 
stitute and marched to Ihe 
Ministry of Education. They 
chanted slogans and their 
spokesman read from a pre- 
pared ICXL - 
The students demanded a 
meeting with the Vice-Pre- 
mier, Mr Li Peng, whose 
government portfolio indudes 
responsibility for education, 
but Mr Li did not appear. 

Last Saturday African dip- 
lomats met Chinese officials 
to discuss the Tianjin inci- 
dent which occurred at the 
university campus, about 85 
miles south-east of Peking. 

A Foreign Ministry spokes- 
man said “the unpleasant 
incident between African and 
-Chinese students is over". 
Chinese officials were still 
"working op the students to 
settle the issue". 

In a related incident China 
Legal Sew 5 reported- that a 
Moroccan student walking in 
Peking with a Japanese wom- 
an had been beaten by Chinese 
youths who mistook the wom- 
an for a Chinese. 

Similar incidents against

place in the recent past

By Nicholas. Ashfonl 
: Diplomatic Correspondent 

Melina Mercouri, the Greek 
Minister of Culture and erst- 
while film star, is due in 
London today to talk about an 
issue that remains close to 
many Greek hearts — the 
return of the Elgin Marbles. 

Next week she is to take pan 
in an Oxford Union debate on 
the motion: “The Elgin Mar- 
bles must be returned 10 
Athens." Her .pleas to the 
British Government howev- 
J_er, to aflpwihe marbles to be 
removed from the British 
Museum and returned to 
Greece will fall on deaf ears. 

In October 1984 the Gov- 
ernment turned down a Greek 
request for their return. Last 
year a similar request by 
Unesco's committee to pro- 
mote the rehabilitation of 
cultural property was equally 
firmly rejected.

strikers said flight safety could 
no longer be guaranteed be- 
cause ground mechanics had 
joined the strike. ' 

Both Spantax and Aviaco 
have been negotiating recently 
for an injection or foreign 
capital. Aviaco management 
sources said yesterday that the 

pilots* strike threatened recov- 
ery plans for the airline. 

Between 75 and 80 per cent 
of British holiday charter traf- 
fic to Spain is carried by 
British airlines. The Spaniards 
have tong wanted to increase 
their share, but have not been 
able to offer foreign operators 
competitive enough prices or 
appropriate aircraft. The 
present strikes will not help.

TV chaos 

From JohaGarim 
Mexico City ... 

The quality of international 
television transmissions is not 
as bad as in the first days of 
the World . Cup but: 
broadcasters' nerves remain 
frayed as it is still a gamble 
whether they will succeed in 
transmitting live commentary 
from the stadiums. - 

“We’re scrambling from 
game to game trying to salvage 
what we can.” ITV*s sports 
producer, Mr Robert Burrows, 

The BBC and ITV have 
_been lucky, by their own 
-admission, in the past two 
days but at least 1 1 European 
television companies had seri- 
ous difficulties on Thursday. 
RTE of Ireland, for example, 
only had commentary for a 
small part of the big Italy- 
Argentina game. 

The BBC apparently man- 
aged to solve some of its 
problems when one of its 
technicians discovered that 
the circuit to London was 
located m the Bulgarian com- 
mentary position. 

A deft switch of commen- 
tary boxes led both the BBC 
and Bulgarian television to 
broadcast satisfactorily on 
Thursday. ■ ITV performed a 
'Similar shuffle with the Israe- 
lis, with the same good results. 

Televisa, the local televi- 
sion company which is largely 
responsible for all the chaos, 
appeared, however, to be act 
ing with a new sense of 
urgency yesterday, sending 
technicians to unravel ari as- 
tonishingly confused sound 
wiring system. 

Zanu factions in 
battle for control 

From Jan Raath, Harare 

A dispute has broken, out 
between the radical Marxists 
and the capitalists in Mr 
Robert Mugabe’s ruling Zanu 
(PF) party, already damaged 
by tribal rifts. • 

Mr Maurice Nyagumbo, 
number three m the party as 
its secretary for administra- 
tion, was tgioted in the Herald 
newspaper here this wedc as 
saying that party- supporters 
should be allowed soon to 
deride whether “to do away 
with us, as we now appear to 
have adopted capitalism”. 

He called for an emergency 
party congress to give support- 


Ms Zanu (PF) family 1 
era the chance to elect a new 
Central Committee and Polit- 
buro “which will be able to 
cany out the principles of 
scientific socialism”. 

Mr Nyagmnbo’s frustra- 
tions, centre on the party’s 
leadership code adopted at its 
first post-independence con- 
in bars members 
m owning, more than 50 
acres of land and from run- 
ning businesses. 

It is a well known but little 
aired feet, however, that many 
senior party members — in- 
cluding several in the 15-post 
Politburo — have bought sub- 
stantial ranches owned for- 
merly by whites and run 
c hains of hquor stores, bus 
companies and hotels. 

' Meanwhile, sweetness and 
light still prevails at Zanu (PF) 
headquarters in Harare. 

Mr Charles Duke, aged 52, 
MP for the mink-and-manure 
belt of the Highlands constitu- 
ency in Harare, announced his 
resignation from the conserva- 
tive alliance of Mr Ian Smith, 
the former Prime Minister, 
and became part of the 
“family” of Zanu (PF). 

Highlands becomes the first 
of the 20 seats reserved for 
whites in the 100-seat House 
of Assembly to belong to the 
Prime Minister’s party. 

Mr Duke said be did not 
intend to resign bis seat and 
hoped his constituents would 
bade him. 

• Rights workers -freed: Mr 
Mi chad Auret, chair m an of 
the Cathplic Commission for 
Justice and Peace in Zimba- 
bwe, and Mr Nicholas Nde- 
bete, its director, have been 
released from prison. 

Mr Auret told The Times 
ay that he had been 
about right hours after 
his arrest in Harare on 
Wednesday. Mr Mugabe had 
intervened .personally on be- 
half of the two men. 

Mr Ndebete had been freed 
by the High Court on Tuesday 
after two weeks in detention, 
but was rearrested on 
Wednesday. • 

Eva Banyan (left), the Romanian Soprano, and Vyacheslav Polozov, the Soviet tenor, 
winners in the fifth Madame Butterfly contest in Tokyo, have both announced their 
defection. Japanese police said Polozov was seeking political asylum in the United States 
while Tokyo officials said Miss Banyan had flown to Canada hoping to seek asylum there. 

Angolans press on 
against Savimbi 
after Pretoria raid 

the dawn 

Lisboa (Reuter) — Unite 
rebels said yesterday that 
Angola was pressing ahead 
with a big offensive against 
their inland strongholds as it 
assessed die damage inflicted 
by So&th African raiders on a 

key southern supply port. 

One arm of the offensive 
was originally launched from 
the southern town of 
Menongne, 400 miles east of 
the port of Nantibe, target of 
Thursday’s South African 

The official 
agency, Angop, __ 
raid destroyed or badly dam- 
aged three empty fbel tanks 
and sunk a cargo ship. No 
casually figures were given. 

Angola, which accuses 
South Africa of aiding Units, 
sent a regional commander to 
inspect the damage. 

The attack was launched by 
a South African missile beat 
and divers using mines, Angop 
said. The sunken ship had 
been carrying food. Two other 
vessels were damaged. 

A spokesman for Unite in 
Lisbon said government forces 
hacked by Cnban troops were 
pressing on with their offen- 
sive, which began ]0 days ago, 
against rebel bases in the east 
and south-east. 

Unite has said it lost control 
of the town of Cangombe, in 
Moxico province, earlier this 

Africa refused yesterday to 
confirm or deny that it had 
matte the Namibe attack (Mi- 
chael Hornsby writes). 

“We are not prepared to 
comment on such allegations, 
ll is very easy for a country 

torn by ririJ war to blame 
everything on South Africa,” 
Colonel Tna Krynauw said at 
South African Defence Force 
headquarters in Pretoria.

African troops went into An-

£4m for frontline states 

Harare (Reuter) — Nigeria 
has riven southern Africa’s 
frontline states SNiglQ mil- 
lion (£4 million) in the wake of 
the May raids on Zimbabwe, 
Zambia and Botswana, the 
Foreign Minister, Professor 
Bolaji Akinyemi. said at the 

start of an eight-day tour. 

Professor Akinyemi, who is 
also chairman of the Organi- 
zation of African Unity libera- 
tion committee, said: “We 
(Africa) must show that we are 
not cowards in the face of

Peace talks 
focus on 

From Alan Tomlinson 

Efforts to find a peace 
formula for Central America 
are. beginning to focus on what 
Nicaragua considers the mrin 
obstacle to regional security: 
the US troops on exercises m 

The Sandinista - Govern- 
ment, which has been alone in 
refusing to sign the latest draft 
of the Contadora Treaty, be- 
lieves that its northern neigh- 
bour will find itself isolated as 
negotiations enter their final 
phase this weekend. 

Foreign ministers from the 
five Central American and 
right Latin American nations 
are gathered in Panama to 
tackle outstanding defence 

Hopes that an accord would 
be signed yesterday evaporat- 
ed three weeks ago, when 
Nicaragua said it could not 
endorse a treaty which al- 
lowed exercises by foreign 
troops to continue in the area. 

The Sandhi istas were alone 
in wanting to sign an earlier 
draft which would have 
curbed US activities: they 
walked out of negotiations last 
year when a modified version 
left the manoeuvres un- 

Although they rejoined the 
talks in January, the Sandinis- 
tas have found themselves 
increasingly isolated. 

But on outstanding security 
matters Nicaragua's negotia- 
tors see certain coincidences 
of opinion with the other 
Central American nations. 

Hrst, a Nicaraguan source 
close to the negotiations said, 
it has suggested that exercises 
be included, with arms and 
troop numbers, in a proposed 
points system for evaluating 
each country's defence needs. 
Only Honduras has objected 
Hie source said Honduras 
was also the only opponent of 
a Guatemalan proposal that 
defence needs be determined 
partly with regard to “the 
hypothetical possibility” of 
war with an outside power. 

Guatemala's concern is 
prompted by its squabble with 
Britain over Belize. 

Commonwealth seven reject 
further dialogue with Botha 

By Nicholas Ashford, Diplomatic Correspondent 

The seven-member Com- 
monwealth Eminent Persons 
Group (EPG) has turned 
down a South African request 
for further talks on its propos- 
als for a dialogue towards 
democracy and an end to 
apartheid in South Africa. 

In a letter to President 
Botha's Government, mem- 
bers of the group said that in 
the absence of any movement 
by the South Africans on two 
key proposals — the release of 
Mr Nelson Mandela, leader of 
the African National Con- 
gress, and lifting the ban on 
the ANC— they saw “no merit 
in farther discussions”. 

They also told the South 
Africans that actions such as 
last month's raids against 
Botswana, Zambia and Zim- 
babwe had “made the negoti- 
ating climate more difficult”. 

Their letter, in reply to a 
message they had received 
from Mr R-F.“Pik” Botha, the 
South African Foreign Minis- 
ter, earlier this week, was sent 
as the seven members were 
putting the finishing touches 
to a report on their six-month 
peace mission to southern 

Until the report has been 
sent to Commonwealth lead- 
ers next week, its contents are 

being kept a close secret. The 
report however, is under- 
stood to recommend that the 
49-nation organization should 
consider taking further action 
against South Africa along the 
lines laid down in the commu- 
nique of last October's Com- 
monwealth summit in 

To ensure unanimity 
among the group's seven 
members, the report does not 

Exhibition bar 

Soatfa African firms have bees 
barred from taking part in 
“PosidDQia *86”, an interna- 
tional shipping industry exhi- 
bition held in Piraeus this 
week, after the organizers 
invoked reports of bomb 
threats (Mario Modtano re- 
ports from Athens). 

slate which, if any, of the 
additional measures con- 
tained in that communique 
should be introduced. That 
derision will be taken at a 
mini-summit of seven Com- 
monwealth leaders who are 
due to meet in London in 
early August. 

The report, which runs to 
more than 300 paragraphs, is 
understood to be a carefully 

balanced document designed 
to prevent an open split at the 
August meeting between Mrs 
Thatcher, who is opposed to 
imposing economic sanctions 
on South Africa, and other 
Commonwealth members 
who favour tough action. 

Last year's Commonwealth 
summit listed a number of 
additional measures member- 
states would consider taking if 
South Africa did not make 
adequate progress towards 
dismantling apartheid. 

They included a ban on air 
links, a ban on new invest- 
ment and a ban on food 
imports from South Africa. 

Mrs Thatcher is roost un- 
likely to adopt any of these 
sanctions because of the eco- 
nomic consequences they 
would have both for South 
Africa and for Britain. But for 
the sake of Commonwealth 
unity she may be persuaded to 
approve a few lesser measures. 

The group has been led by 
Mr Malcolm Fraser, former 
Prime Minister of Australia, 
and General Olusegun 
Obasanjo, ex-President of Ni- 
geria. Britain was represented 
on the group by Lord Barber, a 
former Chancellor of the 

Turks jail Libyans for 
foiled bomb attempt 

From Rasit Gnrdflek. Ankara 

An Ankara court yesterday 
sentenced two Libyans to five 
years' imprisonment for the 
attempted bombing on April 
18 of an American officers' 
club here. The men, Ali al- 
Adjeli Ramadan and Rejab 
Mochlar aJ-Rohoma 
Tarhount, greeted the sen- 
tences with victory signs. 

The court ruled that there 
was not sufficient evidence to 
prove that they were pan of an 
“organized conspiracy”. 

Earlier, charges were 
dropped against three Libyan 
People's Bureau officials in 
view of their diplomatic im- 

munity. The three, who left 
the country immediately after 
the foiled bombing attempt, 
were indicted for allegedly 
assisting Ramadan and 
Tarhouni and for supplying 
the six Soviet-made grenades 
to be used in the attack. 

Throughout the trial, the 
two men denied any links with 
Libyan officials, claiming that 
they had planned to bomb 
parked cars outside the US 
club because of the US attack 
on their country. They 
claimed that their confessions 
had been extracted under

Shell-shocked town awaits the rockets’ return 

From Ian Murray 
KiryatShmona, Israel 

New bouses in this shell- 
shocked town are no longer 
being bnitt with tile roots. 
That; according to Dr Shmuet 
Tahad, is a sore sign that the 
people are once more begin- 
ning to fear that rockets will 

fall here regularly, as they did 
in the months before Israel 
invaded Lebanon in 1982. 

Dr Lahad, a psychologist, 
should know. He has become 
an expert on the tensions of 
the town, where he has woo the 
n icknam e of “Mr Stress”. He 
moved here in 1979, shortly 
after a school was hit by a 
Katyusha rocket fired over the 
moun tains of Lebanon- 

.' He has since discovered that 

ft is possible to tell from the 
roofs bow worried the town is. 
When -rockets were raining 
down daily m 1981, tile roofs 
gave way to safer concrete 
ones when Israel invaded 
Lebanon and the rockets 
stopped coming, tiles were 
back in vogue. 

In the year since Israel 
polled back most of its troops 
from Lebanon, the safer con- 

crete roots have gradually 
become popular again. 

There are other little signs 
“Mr Stress” has noticed. Par- 
ents no longer plan children's 
parties oat of doors. The 
nervous, subconscious listen- 
ing for rockets has begun 
n gain, 

Krryat Shmoua was the 
main target for Katyushas, 
particularly in the smraner of 

1981, when more than 24)00 
fell in a fortnight and half the 
towrfs population of 16,000 
moved eat Last month, anoth- 
er Katyusha fell on a snail 

playground, slightly injuring 
th ree child ren. The oM fears 
are returning. 

But as Miss Marsha 
Brown, who runs the commu- 
nity centre, explained, the 
fears are coming back in a 
different way. 

“Once you have gone 
through something so ranch 
worse, yon almost get bias* 
about it.” she said. “The feet 
that we are blase is the most 
surprising thing that has hap- 
pened this year.” 

She helped to organize 
children's activities in the 

community centre, which re- 
ceived a direct hit from a 
Katyusha in 1981 and which 
once served as the meeting 
place for Israeli and Lebanese 

The children show none of 
the signs of stress that Dr 
Lahad noted when be first 
arrived in the town. 

Stone of those he had to 
treat were suffering from 
chronic insomnia or bed-wet- 
ting. Some would not go ont at

West Bank curfew after attacks 

From Onr Own Correspondent, Jerusalem 

The West Bank towns of 
Hebron and Nablus were un- 
der curfew yesterday after 
attacks on lews. 

The attacks appear to have 
been timed to coinride with 
the nineteenth anniversary of 
Israel's occupation of the terri- 
tories during the 1967 Six-Day 
War. Mr Yuzhak Shamir. the 
deputy Prime Minister and 
Likud leader, drew attention 
to this in a speech, pointing 

out that Israers rule of the 
West Bank and the whole of 
Jerusalem was now longer 
limn that of Iordan's. 

The two men injured in the 
ai lacks include an Ethiopian 
Jew subbed in the back while 
shopping in Hebron yesterday 
and an Israeli hit twice in the 
chest when a gunman fired at 
him in the centre of Nablus on 
Thursday afternoon. 

Two women shopping in a 

supermarket that same eve- 
ning were also slightly injured 
by a bomb placed on one of 
the shelves. 

In other incidents linked to 
the anniversary two petrol 
bombs were thrown at buses at 
Jenin in the West Bank. 

In Jerusalem there were 
violent incidents between po- 
lice and demonstrators from 
the right wing Jewish settlers 
movement. Gush Enurain.

Mrs Judith Gntforb is a 
mother who says that she 
would rather die in her bed 
than live in a shelter. But she 
is also quietly determined that 
the Katyushas will never make 
her leave the town where she 
has lived for 30 years. 

She spoke for many in 
believing that the present rela- 
tive quiet in the town coukl not

start again. 

“We just pray that we shall 
be lucky as we have been in the 
past.” she said. “Every day 
there is no shooting we say 
there is another day of silence 
— but we have not solved the

Swedes fire 

Stockholm (Reuter) — A 
Swedish naval patrol dropped 
anti-submarine grenades yes- 
terday after suspecting foreign 
submarine activity in Swedish 

A Defence Ministry spokes- 
man said a salvo was dropped 
from a patrol ship taking part 
in in exercise in the Baltic 
: archipe!ago off Stockholm. He 
did not say how many gre- 
nades were exploded. 

“So far our attack has not 
shown any results. We are not 
sure there is a submarine 
down there. But we thought it 
wise to lake action first and 
analyse results later ” he said. 

The anion had not taken 
place near any restricted or 
military area. The exercises 
had revealed “indications of 
foreign activity” several limes 
before the incident.

ITV to counter attack with some- 
thing completely the same, to be 
called Sparring Triangles. The 
success of .-1 Question of Sport is 
remarkable: for example, the pro-

the end of April, easily the lop

End this new Com Law folly 

.As Europe and the US are poised to fight 
a trade war over surplus wheat, we in 
Britain are celebrating the victory over 
the Com Laws 140 years ago. Free trade, 
for Cobden and Bright, was not an end 
in itself, but a means to peace between 
nations. Allow the people of one country 
to buy as much as they like from those of 
another, and the likelihood of them 
wanting to fight each other vanishes. 
The same idea was behind the creation 
of the European Community. 

Sadly the child of Europe's founding 
fathers has gone astray. The mischief of 
the Common Agricultural Policy is two- 
fold, and both are a repetition of what 
the Com Laws did. By cutting off the 
trade - with Russia, whose people's 
prosperity depended largely on the 
export of grain, the Com Laws led 
eventually to the Crimean War. 

It is arguable that when we, in 
accordance with the rules of the CAP, 
ceased to buy beef and wheat from 
Argentina, having been her largest 
customer for a century, she believed she 
had nothing to lose by invading the 
Falklands. True, no shots have been 
fired by Canadians. Australians or New 
Zealanders, but as their farmers go to 
the wall, the bonds between us weaken. 

A third of Australia's dairy farmers, 
according to her former prime minister, 
have gone out of business as a direct re- 
sult of the CAP. Her su§ar growers, 
probably the most efficient in the world. 

by Richard Body 

have been forced to accept a price (about 
£85 a metric tonne) below their cost of 
production (£140). How could it be 
otherwise when the EEC dumps on to 
the world market one fifth of the world's 
supply with export subsidies of about 
£200 a tonne? 

The plight of New Zealand farmers is 
perhaps even worse.They receive no 
subsidies because, as the lowest cost 
producers of lamb and dairy products in 
the world, they should not need them. 
But they are plunging into debt, and 
once prosperous holdings that used to 
afford a good livelihood for several 
families are being abandoned as ho 
longer economic. 

It is bad enough, Australia and New 
Zealand say, that the British people 
should no longer be allowed to buy their 
low cost food; now they are finding it 
impossible to hold on to other markets 
as the EEC dumps its subsidized 

The damage to the world's low cost 
food producers is visible: efficient 
farmers bankrupt, their land aban- 
doned, their stock sold at knock-down 
prices. What is invisible is the effect of 
protectionism on our own prosperity. 

Most of the cost of EEC dumping is 
paid for out of our contribution to VAT, 
while the basic protection afforded to 

our high cost producers is provided by 
import duties and levies, set at a height 
to exclude low cost food from our 
market It is now common ground that 
the ordinary family pays an extra £7 a 
week for food as a result of the CAP — 
effectively a tax ofbetween 5- 1 0 per cent 
on the income of our poorest families. 

When we spend an extra £7 a week on 
food, we must clearly forgo something 
else we would like to buy — usually the 
product of our manufacturing industry; 
£7 a week for the average household 
may not sound much, but multiplied by 
all the years we have tolerated the CAP, 
it represents a diversion of .many 
billions of pounds of purchasing power. 
It seems one obvious explanation, 
though not the only one, why so many 
British companies have disappeared 
and perhaps a million jobs lost. 

Cobden and Bright argued that once 
the Corn Laws were gone, millions of 
people would have more money to 
spend and that their purchasing power 

would be like an engine generating new 
wealth, eventually benefiting everyone. 

wealth, eventually benefiting everyone, 
even those who believed they gained 
from the Coro Laws. 

Today, 140 years on, it is futile for 
politicians to wring their hands over the 
decline of our industries. Let them learn 
from history.

Rogue, but what a genius 

1 have been to the Alfred Gilbert 
exhibition at the Royal Academy, 
but I could hardly do so without 
pausing in Piccadilly Circus to 
inspect the only work of the 
sculptor which is instantly rec- 
ognizable to everyone in this 
country and countless millions 
elsewhere. Eros looks splendid 
after his refurbishment, though it 
is unlikely that anyone will 
remember that the monument was 
meant to symbolize, in the 
overflowing fountain which Eros 
crowns, the overflowing goodness 
and philanthropy of the Earl of 
Shaftesbury, and indeed that the 
whole structure is his memorial. 

Anyone who has read Richard 
Dormcm's hugely entertaining 
biography of Gilbert will know, 
before he turns into Burlington 
House, that he has an exhilarating 
experience before him. Gilbert's 
high noon was also the pinnacle of 
i Victorian confidence, and his 
genius (the world is fully justified) 
was so assertive, so original and so 
free that the comparison with 
Benvenuto Cellini, frequently 
| made and as frequently denied, 
i cannot fail to come to mind. 

If. on entering you want to 
! know at once um* it cannot, go 
I straight to No 53. an epergne. 
mostly m solid silver, so enor- 
; mous (it’s four feet high, and if it 
I was c\cr used as a table 
1 ecnircpiccc the table must have 
been reinforced) and so elaborate 
that I defy you not to think of the 
similarly gargantuan golden salt- 
cellar that Cellini made for Fran- 
cis I. now in the Kunsthistor- 
ischcsmuseum in Vienna: if you 
could have a bath in Cellini's 
creation, you could stage a swim- 
ming race in Gilbert's. 

‘ But it is not the size of the piece 
which leaves the lasting memory: . 
it is the exuberance. You can see 
this is in almost all Gilbert's pieces 
d occasion, from the huge mem- 
orials. culminating in the one for 
Queen Alexandra, to the ewer and 
dish commissioned by the Brigade 
of Guards as a gift for the Duke of 
York (No 5b). and indeed in some 
of the least massive items in this 
show, such as the sets of orna- 
mental silver spoons (No 5S»- 
They arc' all so crammed with 
energy and excitement that they 
seem to be alive: the bowls of the 
spoons swirl before your eyes, the 
St George on the Duke of York's

dragon as you watch, while as for 
the Preston mayoral chain. I swear 
that if you look at it long enough 
the shape of the mayor — the 
original one. not today's — will 
begin to swell with self-im- 
portance in its magic circum- 
ference. . .

. •• . 


Giberl's life was one vast tragi- 
-comedy. again reminding us of 
CeIJini. True, he didn't murder 
quite so many people as the 
Florentine did ("or. to be exact, as 
the Florentine claimed to have 
done), but in his business dealings 
he inclined more to the style of 
Falsiaff than of the Governor of 
the Bank of England. He suffered. 

much of the time, from artist's 
block in an extreme form — 
perhaps the. most extreme known 
to history - but' that could cover 
only a few or his sins, and his 
record of taking money for 
commissions, and- not executing 
them, to say nothin'g of his habit of' 
taking back finished works to 
improve them and not reluming 
them, was too flagrant to be 
tolerated for ever, and he was' 
successively expelled from the 
Royal Academy, made bankrupt 
.and forced to live in exile. 

But his life was melodramatic as 
well as tragi-comic. for he lived to 
return from exile, to be restored to 
all his honours, to be knighted 
(successive monarcbs had repeat- 
edly washed their hands of him for 
his impossible behax’iour). and to 
be entrusted — it was his swan- 
song - with the memorial to 
Queen Alexandra. It is possible 
that Shaw based Dubedat. in The 
f)>K‘tnr's Dilemma, on him: cert- 
ainly that portrait of a genius and 
rogue seems drawn from the life. 

We cannot think ourselves back 
into the age in which Gilbert 
flourished, sank and resurfaced: 
we can more easily join hands 
with Shakespeare's England than 
that of the years between Queen 
Victoria's Golden Jubilee (there is 
a marble bust of Victoria, from 
Gilbert's earlier career, that is very 
far from' flattering) and the death 
of Edward V]J. Significantly, the 
catalogue includes a device I do 
not remember having seen before 
at an exhibition; a set of parallel 
chronological tables which tell us 
what was happening in Britain and 
elsewhere throughout the course 
of Gilbert's life and work. 

Who. to take the most obvious 
question, commissions tombs to- 
day? Most of those who might 
want to are so afraid of death that 
they will have no reminder of its 
existence, and the rest think it' 
would be ostentatious, or even 
likely to bring bad luck. (Where ■ 
they' would now go. for a tomb 
designer even if they wanted one is 
another matter, Zeffirelli, I ex- 
pect). The Victorians may have 
been damned to a man, but they 
would not have known that in - 
advance, and they marched into 
their marble and bronze mausole- . 
urns certain that they would be 
given advance intimation of the 
sounding of the Last Trump. 
Gilbert's greatest funerary work 
(he finished it 36 years after he 
started), fully accepts this attitude: 
it is the tomb of the Duke of 
Clarence, in Windsor Castle. - 

in the year in which Gladstone 
become prime minister for the last 
time, Walt. Whitman died and 
Shaw wrote - hjs first play: he 
finished it in the year in which the 
Kellogg-Briand Pact was signed. 
John Logie Baird gave the first 
transatlantic . demonstration of 
television and Mussolini pub- 
lished his autobiography. In that 
span of years; the world came to 
an end and began, unrecognizable, 
again: the Titanic went down- 
almost exactly halfway through. 

Talk about confidence: the 
Duke did nothing significant, 
partly because he seems to have 
been rather dim. and partly be- 
cause he did not have lime to — he 
died at 28 — but Gilbert's creation 
would still have been rather 
excessive if it had been designed to 
hold simultaneously the. mortal

and warmth that are necessarily

and prevarications, these portraits 
are the living truth. For all his 
moving ' in royal circules, the 
Queens and Dukes stirred only his 
genius, not his heart. But his

awoke both. T am glad that he

this exhibition does him justice.

Food— too tough for BHS to handle 

The decision that British Home 
Stores will no longer sell food is 
final proof that no one else can do 
it like Marks & Spencer. The BHS 
food halls, had never been profit- 
able: since the company withdrew 
food from many of its stores in 
flight -from the price war un- 
leashed in die late 1 970s when 
Tesco gave up Green Shield 
stamps and switched, to its price- 

were usually good hardly anyone 
went to BHS specifically for the 
food. Its shops are still best 

regarded for their lighting depart- 
ments. Sir Terence Conran needs 

cutting Operation Checkout. 

BHS was left selling food from 
only 56 of its 127 stores, and until- 
two years ago the range was 
weighed down with mundane 
groceries carrying low profit mar- 
gins. The move back into fresh 
produce and speciality foods wor- 
thy of a profit premium under- 
taken in 1984, in evident 
imitation of the success already 
achieved by Marks & Spencer in 
concentrating exclusively on food- 
stuffs capable of delivering high 
profits, did have some limited 
success but the £90 million worth 
of sales achieved could never 
cover the overheads of a national 
distribution network. 

Though the cheese and bacon 

meets. Sir Terence Conran needs 
the 7 per cent of floor space 
hitherto devoted to being a sec- 
ond-rate food retailer to mount a 
convincing challenge to Marks & 
Spencer in the fields of fashion 
and . design where his principal 
strength must lie. 

BHS is not the first to have 
abandoned the contest. Wool- 
worths, once Marks & Spencer’s 
natural High Street rival, an- 
nounced earlier this year that they 
were finally abandoning their 
much bigger food business, keep- 
ing only the confectionery coun- 
ters and cafeteria bars. (Similarly 
BHS will be retaining its profitable 
restaurants). Littlewoods pereist. 
but their food departments, in a 
chain beset with troubles, must 
now feel under threat 

Low-cost food items do not sit 
happily in , .department " stores 
concentrating on the sale of major 
purchases, nor in variety stores 
occupying prime high rental sites. 

Yet Marks & Spencer increased 
their turnover on food by 1 6.3 per 
cent last year. The niche they, 
identified years ago for ready- 

prepared foods and recipe dishes 
has served them.welL and they 

has served them :welL and they 
continue to innovate with vigour. 
The food department’s most re- 
cent successes include a calorie- 
counted range of meals, while the 
wine departments are revelling in 
the sales of wine coolers and 
ready-mixed drinks such as 
whisky and American dry in 
handy 25 cl cans. 

They are now the nation's 
biggest fishmonger, they export 
crumpets and hot cross buns to 
France, and there is a cult follow- 
ing for such items as their BTL 
(bacon tomato and lettuce) sand- 
wich and three-bean salad. 

All the major food retailers are 
now joining the hunt for out-of 1 
town sites where they can escape 
their cramped and congested High 
Street shops and offer the car 
parking, spacious fresh food disr 
plays and. in-store bakeries that 
customers these days demand 

The trend is also strongly 

toward healthy eating, with cus- 
tomers shying away from red meal 
and seeking more fresh fruit and 
vegetables, preferably available all 
the year, round without regard to 

Sainsbury set the standards for 
the industry, Tesco challenge 
them, Ourefour hypermarkets 
and Asda superstores lead on 
price,- -while the new Cullens' 
convenience stores prove that it; 
still possible to find profitable 
niches in secondary High Street 
sites in areas of high disposable 

The trends do not seem likely to- 
upset M & S. They have the trick 
of achieving high profitability 
without discomfort, and are mas- 
ters of the cold chain of distribu- 
tion. keeping fresh produce chilled 
from point of production to point 
of sale. In some stores they, now 
keep even the potatoes in the cold 
cabinets: Their enviable, and it- 
now seems inimitable, reputation 

for quality and reliability wHl keep ; 
the customers coming for sure.

Why Botha 

When I was in South Africa 
recenttv it was conceded by most, 
including President Botha, that 
the system cannot be sustained 
either in practice or in theory. Its 
dismantling is proceeding apace. 

Even the Group Areas Act., 
which requires different races to 
live in designated areas, is fraying. 
Ifil were repealed in toto econom- 
ics and inclination would not 
abolish voluntary residential seg- 
I reflation: it happens in Bnxion. in 
1 'Toxteth. in Handswonn and in 
Harlem without any laws to 
[ compel it. c . 

1 With the disappearance of the 
pass laws and the prohibitions 
■against the races mingling in 
public, in tirade unions and in 
other activities, the focus °j 
.contention has changed. The real 
.apartheid which remains is be- 
tween those who have votes with 
an input into national political 
power and those who do not. 
Independence for India was not 
complicated by any desire by a 
large British element to stay tn the 
. country and claim a substantial 
stake in its economy and future 
administration. Nevertheless Mr 
AUlee's government spent two 
years trying to son out the 
differences between the citizens of 
the sub-continent in a search for 
the constitutional heir to the 
British Raj. In the end it could not 
find 'a sole heir among the 
indigenous inhabitants though, as 
personal assistant w Sir Stafford 
Cripps on the Cabinet mission to 
India in 1946. 1 can vouch for the 
I sincerity of the desperate efforts to 
.do so. 

- The Commonwealth Eminem 
Persons Group (EPG) should not 
despair, however much they feel 
rebuffed by one side or another as 
they pursue the enormously diffi- 
cult task of conciliation. Not only 
do they have to deal with diverse 
non-European groups who want 
different solutions but also with a 
large European group, native to 
the country, the bulk of which will 
not go sway and which is not 
monolithic in its views as to what 
should be done. 

Common sense, realities, inter- 
national pressure and the EPG 
have combined to push President 
| -Botha's government faster to- 
wards genuine and deep reform. 
Steps- are now being taken to 
establish a new national council to 
work out the future constitution 
and immediately to start part- 
icipating in executive govern- 
ment. The membership is to 
include at least ten black leaders 
from ihe townships and chief 
ministers from the homelands. 

The African National Congress, 
although the strongest single .force . 
in the townships.. probably repre- 
sents no more than, a fifth to a 
quarter of all blacks. Chief Gatsha 
Buthdezi. who believes neither in 
violence nor in sanctions, appears 
to retain the support of most of the 
six million Zulus, who arc much 
opposed to ihe ANC. The same 
goes for most blacks in the rural 
areas and the homelands. The 
' ANCs aim to be the recipient of 
total power is as disputed as was 
the similar claim made by Con- 
gress in the predominantly Mus- 
lim areas m fndia. 

. Unlike Congress, which es- 
chewed .violence. the ANC de-- 

but it would only help to produce 
chaos and misery for all South 

pebds upon it, and the arms it geis 
from Russia, to increase Us in- 

fluence. . Mrs Mandela's exhorta- 
tion to murder black opponents 
with the dreaded burning necklace 
; was not 'an aberrant outcry. It was 

chaos and misery for all South 
^Africans, white and black. 

The liming of the raids against 
ANC bases reveals once again the 
tactlessness and clumsiness of the 
South African government in 
diplomacy. It was a foolish action, 
though Pretoria can reasonably 
. ask why is it ail right for the ANC 
to operate terrorist bases for 
continuing violence and wrong for 
South Africa to retaliate. Either 
way. it is not central to the 
problem of constitutional reform 
and should be ignored by the EPG 
and interested governments. 

We cannot expect the com- 
plicated affairs of South Africa, 
which have been evolving to their 
present form since the first Dutch 
settlement at the .Cape in 1652. to 
be settled in a few months. 
Patience, not ill-thought and hasty 
• action, is needed. A solution will 
take years, not weeks.

Things that go 
dump overnight 

We have believed for some time 
now that we are .visited by. 
. ralgrubs^.. Ralgrub.. an appro- 
priately' eerie-sounding word for 
people (or creatures?) who do the 
opposite of what burglars do; They 
put things into people’s houses. - 

I can swear that nobody in our 
house has ever owned tour left 
Wellington boots, all the same 
size — fitting someone between 14 
and 1 7,' I should say - and all red. 
None of us has ever possessed a 
full-size,. highly fashionable seal- 
skin coat. But one; was discovered 
under the stairs the other day. 
together with a veiy old fire 
extinguisher (“Drive in knob by 
hard blow against floor”) leaking 
some very sticky white chemical 
glop. They certainly weren't there 
when we moved in two years ago. 

The ralgrnbs are always bringing 
' us battered lampshades that be- 
long to no known lamp; or lamp 
bases with nowhere to fix a shade. 
Once they left seven dinner platen, 
with a -floral design in blinding 
colours and gilt edges. They leave ■ 
quite big things outside, or in the 
shed or garage; halves of bicycles, 
a spare -tyre that wouldn't fit the 
car we have now- or any of its 
predecessors, a broken wicker 
•jehair' that was never in any 
bedroom of ours. 

I don't suppose ours is the only 
household that has two corner 
cupboards, one in the bathroom 
and one in our bedroom, both 
vaguely associated with medical 
and cosmetic wares. But who else 
has found in any comer cupboaid 
the middle third of a pencil — that 
is, one with both ends broken 
off — a plier, that is half a pair of 
pliers (just try separating them), a 
scissor (likewise), a Penguin copy 
of Three Men in a Boat starting at 
p.59 (“li was while passing 
through Moulsey Lock that Harris 
told me ' about bis maze 
experience . . .’*) with dried blood 

on it? And parts of at least -five 
torches, not enough to make one 
torch since the only battery is 
oozing a glycerine-like substance? 

It is almost as though the 
ralgrubs wanted me to have the 
little bits or things and my wife to 
have the big, whole (but still of 
course utterly useless) ones. It was 
she who found the fire extin- 
guisher and the sealskin coat (and 
an old gramophone motor, and a 
violin with no strings; no such 
luck as a French horn or some- 
thing). I get these bits. -- 
Recently I found added to them, 
m the corner cupboard, a sepia 
photograph, circa 1926, of an 
unknown lady in a pierrene 
costume holding up something for 
a jumping black labrador; ; the 
tarnished base of somebody's 
broken silver candlestick (perhaps 
they put the other bit- in 
somebody’ else's house); a watch 
key (we have no keyed watches); 
and 600 or so of those tiny little 
beads, like bundreds-and thou- 
sands, which some girls (but not 
ours) wear in ropes. .. 

I was looking for sticking plas- 
ters. It was ju« a kind of reflex

happen if the unbanning of the 
ANC was followed by an escala- 
tion of violence which he had to 
put down. Would the Common- 
wealth, backed by the USA,

South Africa? This would make 
the situation for worse. Massive 
disinvestment and cutting off

vour of violence and against a 
peaceful solution. The imposition 
of harsh sanctions might massage 
the self-indulgence of faraway 
countries themselves not blame- 
less in matters of discrimination

Viability of the capital warship 

Unless all the predictions are 
. '^confounded, Dr Kurt Wald- 
■;.■■ heim will tomorrow be elected 
- President of Austria. His ex- 
• . r . peeled large majority over his 
Socialist opponent, Kurt 
' 'Sleyrer, will reflect not only 
, the disenchantment of voters 
with 16 years of Socialist 
: ^government but also the defi- 
. ;ance of a nation in the lace of 

- t hostile opinion abroad. 

■ - This election, more than any 
’ *- since the Second World War, 
-■-has tested the willingness of 
; : ■;* Austrians to take their place in 

* ; the Western world. A landslide 
. -in favour ofDr Waldheim will 

. .‘mean the nation has, ul- 
. rlimately, failed the test It is 

- .-not simply that a majority will 

- have chosen Dr Waldheim 
-- despite the shadows over his 
repast That they are quite 
•^•.entitled to do. It is rather that 

they chose from a very early 
. - . stage not to look more closely 
-.r..<at any of- those shadows; 

scarcely even to acknowledge 
-■ -their existence. 

;*■ Dr Waldheim stands ac- 
cused of being involved in the 
' deportation and killing of Jews 
. while serving in the Balkans 

- during the war. The charges 

• against him have been many 

- - and insistent but not, it should 

be said, conclusive. However, 
neither Dr Waldheim nor 
most Austrians have seen fit to 

- reply to them. On the contrary, 
they have dismissed the accus- 

ers - particularly the World 
Jewish Congress — as partial 
and not worthy of an answer. 

This is no proper reaction by 
a country which aspires (as the 
election of a former Secretary- 
General of the United Nations 
to head of state would suggest 
it does) to a role fn inter- 
national diplomacy. One as- 
pect of diplomacy is 
mediation: Dr Waldheim has 
extensive experience from his 
days m New York. Another is 
listening to the arguments of 
all sides. And this both Dr 
Waldheim and an Austrian 
majority have shown them- 
selves incapable of doing. 

As well as demonstrating the 
continuing ability of Austrians 
to disregard the outside world, 
the election campaign has also 
summoned up some of the 
uglier ghosts of Austria's pasL 
Anti-semitism is one such 
spectre, whose exorcism is 
long overdue (not only m 
Austria but also in Poland, 
where the Communist authori- 
ties have been keen to stress 
theirwilfingness to do business 
with a President Waldheim). 
Attempts within Austria to 
blame an international Zionist 
conspiracy for defaming Dr 
Waldheim, the appearance of 
anii-semitic graffiti, and ‘ 
threats to the lives of prom- 
inent Jews if Dr Waldheim's 
campaign fails: these do little 
to inspire confidence in 

Austria’s suitability for a 
world role. 

For Dr Waldheim person- 
ally. it is a question of integ- 
rity. While the specific charges 
against him have not been 
proved, they have not been 
answered by the one person 
who has knowledge of the 
truth: Dr Waldheim himselfl It 
is not sufficient to say the 
charges would not stand up in 
a court of law. Dr Waldheim 
has long ceased to be a private 
citizen. He has been an inter- 
national statesman in the past 
and evidently hopes to be one 
again in the near fixture. The 
highest standards of integrity 
must be demanded. 

Dr Waldheim’s failure to 
document his wartime activ- 
ities fully can be explained 
either as an act of deliberate 
concealment or as the result of 
an inability to appreciate the 
problem. Either explanation 
indicates a flaw in a would-be 
head of state. 

Dr Waldheim's election 
posters proclaim him to be a 
man of experience, a man for 
Austria. The nature of that 
experience and the nature of 
Austria have both been called 
into question by his campaign. 
If this is the man the Austrian 
people believe able to repre- 
sent them best in the world, 
then so be it. They still have 
time to change their minds.

Country has stretched and 

- ■ sometimes torn that broad 

tolerance of unusual styles of 
; - life on which the British like to 
' "congratulate themselves, 
r ".Alongside the reasoned com- 
_ r - plaints and reasonable synir 

- -pathies there has been an 
7 . unmistakeable note of hysteria 

in the air. Local events have, 
been magnified into a national 
“ drama. Extravagant language 
has been used, and not only by 
7 local Members of Parliament 
The hippies are said a

phenomenon the convoy is 
hardly much of a claimant on 
the attentions of an ad hoc 
Cabinet committee. 

The televised tears of 
Farmer Attwell elicited wide 
sympathy. They did not, any 
more than does the natural

long for relief. No one wants 
injunctions to be granted 
. promiscuously, but proce- 
dures could surely be speeded 

The revised Public Order 
Act will increase considerably 
the power of the police to deal 
with all manner of collective 
action. Chief constables can 
. already use a battery of pow- 
ers. Much therefore hinges on 
how, operationally, the police 
deploy. No one, least of all 
West Country ratepayers, can 
take much comfort from the 
sight' of squads of officers 
keeping the itinerants on the 
road, for all the world like 
diem being given safe passage 
through hostile territory. 

The best that can be hoped 
for now —until the solstice and 
the group’s dispersal — is that 
its members can be sub- 
divided to small sites without 
violence. But not before two 
things happen. The first is for 
the short term and lies within 
.the province of the Chief 
Constable of Hampshire. 
What itinerants do in their 
buses and wagons ought to be 
private, even when they are 
parked on public land. But the 
condition of those vehicles is 
another matter. Toleration of 
deviant life-style does not 
include turning a blind eye to 
dangerous mechanical con- 
ditions or allowing contempt 
for the rules of the road. Partly 
by their own choice, the hip- 
pies have .thrust themselves, 
forward in the public's atten- 
tion. They must, as a con- 
sequence, ostentatiously be 
made to observe the common 

In the longer run attention 
should be given to the public 
money that backs this ex- 
pression of private life. What 
deserves censure is not the foci 
that this band can travel round 
the country, its members 
exercising with much relish 
and noise their entitlement to 
social security. It is that they, 
and any other able-bodied 
young person receiving dole as 
of right, should not in return 
have some obligation to the 
wider, tax-paying society. 

There is much constructive 
talk today of the advantages of | 
what is known as “woridkne”. 
But in Parliament on Thurs- 
day Mr Ralph Howell rather 
spoilt a useful presentation of 
American “workfare” schemes 
by linking them with abuse of 
the social security system. To 
make the payment of benefit 
(to able-bodied claimants) 
conditional on enrollment in a 
work or training programme 
need notbe a punitive exercise; 
it could on the contrary see the 
beginnings (as it has been in 
California and New Jersey) of 
reintegrating the unemployed 
into a culture of work and 

WoTk needs to be done on a 
British variant of workfare, 
perhaps as Mrs Thatcher in- 
dicated, by extending, the 
Community Programme. It 
would not be a panacea, nor a 
solution to structural un- 
employment, nor would it be 
cheap. But the existence of 
some scheme tying benefit to 
activity would surely have 
meant that this summer’s 
peregrinations in the West 
were paid for out of private 
rather than public purses. 


“If there is one thing I.have 
■ \ learned in my 40 years of

said Mr Len. Lickerish, direc-

Britain is unlikely, of course, 

to rediscover tire vanished

and May in foe wake of foe 
raid upon Libya. This year’s

shatter last year’s record when 
3.3 million Americans, 
celebrating foe strength of 
their currency, put some £1.5 
billion into the Exchequer. But 
wouldit have done so anyway? 

Unless the dollar is riding

London is not only filthy, as 
Mrs Thatcher now acknowl- 
edges (how did it take her so 
long?) but equally noisy and 
overcrowded. Empty Coke 
tins roll across the under- 
ground trains and pop music 
blares out from open-fronted 
shops in pans of foe West End 
or, for that matter, from ye 
olde Engiishe inns. 

Outside London, the charm 
of the English country town 
has been too often enhanced 
by multiple shops whose uni- 
form plastic fronts make every 
town centre look foe same. As 
for traffic, the British urban 
environment is either choked 
by it— or consigns it to multi- 
storey blocks of dripping con- 
crete. The sight either way is 
not a pretty one. - 

According to foe BTA, 
Americans are best attracted to 
this country by its cultural 
heritage and history, and no

looks after its visitors with the

From Licuienant-Colonei A. 


Sir. Your leader of May 31 calls 
upon the Royal Navy io reexam- 
ine the options for its fleet of 
surface escorts in the matter of 
hull design. Should it not first 
examine the viability of the sur- 
face capital warship? 

After the Falklands war the 
Atlantic Committee said; 

Ships are more vulnerable even than 
aircraft to the electronic revolution. 
They are larger targets; their speed 
has not advanced comparably wnh 
aircraft; and they do not look likely 
to benefit so much as airborne 
platforms from the new means of 
evasiveness, such as “Stealth" and 
ECMsfriecmink; counter-measures). 

Techniques io signature reduc- 
tion. such as changing the vessefs 
profile, can equally be applied to the 
incoming missile- The detection, 
identification and tracking of surface 
vessels has become a relatively 
simple task, and even well-defended 
ships are vulnerable to a growing 
range of target-locating and termi- 
nally intelligent sea-skimming 

Oar naval effort at the Falk- 
lands was almost destroyed try a 
small air force using guided mis- 
siles. operating so much at the 
limit of its range as to only permit 
engagement for minutes at a time. 
Had not some missiles failed to 
explode after impact, and a 
freighter been sunk in mistake for 
carrier, we could have faced 

We must accept the fact that a 
warship; or any other ship, can be 
destroyed at ranges of hundreds of 
miles by missiles launched from 
submarine, aircraft, "soft” ship or 
land. The time of the hugely 
expensive surface capital warship, 
packed with instantly out of date 
technology, taking years to build 
and man and defenceless in war, is 

This is not to say that the 
fighting ship is no longer required, 
rust that a beautiful dinosaur is 
just that.

From Mr Nicholas Wardd 
Sir, Your leader about the short fat 
ship controversy was admirably 
balanced but tacked the ' inter- 
national dimension. British ship 
design effort (of which the Royal 
Corps of Naval Constructors is a 
small but well-integrated and 
fruitful part) neither leads the 

world nor is insulated from h, and. 
as you say. the short fat concern is 
neither new nor particularly 

Why then, in their ■ hugely 
expensive and magnificently 
resourced efforts to create a 600- 
ship navy (making our much 
delayed programme for a rather 
lightweight frigate seem somewhat 
trivial) are the Americans building 
only hulls of conventional dimen- 

The formidable range of Soviet 
warships is similarly propor- 
tioned, as are those of evepr other 
navy in the world. All navies have 
some vessels of low length-io- 
beam ratio; they are called patrol 
craft, assault ships, minesweepers 
and nuclear submarines. 

I have a feeling that the up- 
coming enquiry will show that the 
"inept bureaucrats" who so imagi- 
natively fathered xbe steam cata- 
pult . the mirror landing aid, the 
angled deck, the Sea Harrier ski- 
jump and many other un wasted 
"examples of inventive genius" 
were a little brusque m not 
allowing a well-intentioned cru- 
sade to lake their eye off the ball 
but not wrong.

Slow line on the 
doctrine track 

From Mrs F. £. Brown 
Sir. With regard to your leader 
“Can doctrine develop?" on June 
2. may 1 suggest that Dr Leonard's 
analogy is not quite accurate. The 
movement towards the ordination 
of women can hardly be described 
as an express train. Rather it 
seems to be a "Sunday train" — 
stopping at every station. Crawling 
along, and pausing for long peri- 
ods m the middle of nowhere for 
no apparent reason. 

Dr Leonard, assuming that 
sometime it is going to get 
somewhere, has manned a mav- 
erick locomotive and. collecting 
coaches along the way. is rushing 
to meet it uttering cries, if 1 may 
say so. of panic. 

What is so sad is that I do not 
think Dr Leonard really needs to 
worry. Years of observation of the 
General Synod and its usual effect 
on the life of the Church of 
England leads me to think that 
most of its pronouncements 
should have contained the exclu- 
sion clause of the steamship 
tickets of my youth. This, after 5 
giving the port of call, added 
rather dauntingly "The Company 
however does not guarantee to 
convey the passenger to this or any

University ratings 

From Professor A. H. Gomme 
Sir, Kede has not shown up well in 
the -UGC research survey. We 
have been given no indications of 
the ^ criteria by which the 
committee’s judgments have been 
made, or how small departments 
(like most at Keek) w ere com- 
pared with large ones. 

It is certainly true that our 
quantity of published research has 
gone down. This is entirely due to 
the staff reductions forced on the 
university by the ferocious cuts 
imposed in 1981, when Keek lost 
34 per cent of its annual grant and 
in consequence nearly a quarter of 
its teaching staff 

My own department, which had 
15 members ra 1981, now has 10; 
but the number of students has 
remained unchanged. Hence not 
only has the teaching load 

throughout the department been 
increased by 50 per cent (to as 
much as 18 hours per week — 40 
per cent above the UGC recom- 
mendation), but each member 
must necessarily coyer- a -wider 
area of the field. 

This may benefit us intellec- 
tually, though it does not con- 
centrate our energies, and the 
leaching must be affected. Never- 
theless, all members of the depart- 
ment are active in research, and 
currently all but two have books 
either in the press or under 
contract. Similar things can be 
reported from departments across 
the university.

Chernobyl disaster 

From Mrs John Mortimer 
Sir, Was the Conservative MP for 
Wantage being frivolous when he 
suggested in nis letter of June 2 
that as France is not likely to 
abandon her nuclear power sta- 
tions we might as well keep ours, 
or is it simple minded of me to 
think that the more power stations 
there are the greater is the risk of 
an accident occurring in one of 

Surely we should reduce that 
terrifying risk by shutting down 
our own nuclear power stations 
and, by example and pressure, try 
to persuade our neighbours in 
France to do the same.

June 2. 

From the Reverend R. A . Jupp 
Sir, Your leading article on the 
doctrinal crisis taring the Anglican 
Church, highlights the particular 
problem which faces us at tire 
moment with the ordination of 
women. How do we discern the 
guiding of the Holy Spirit? If the 
Spirit will lead us into truth, what 
test can we apply? 

William Temple spoke of peace 
as (he best way to truth. If we 
would discern the guidance of the 
Spirit, we should look first for 
.evidence of his presence— i.e., foe 
fruits his presence brings. -If the' 
issue of foe 'ordination of women 
reflects these qualities and fosters 
them for the whole Church, then 
perhaps we can detect the leading 
of foe Spirit 

Another test, and one which 
appealed to Newman as he worked 
out his thesis on development in 
doctrine, was given by St Augus- 
tine: “ seairus judical orbis 
terrarunT — if everyone agrees, 
the verdict must be right There 
must be consent 

With this in mind, what do we 
see? The peace of foe Church is 
threatened, and her unity, so long 
prayed and worked for in 
ecumenical dialogue, seems a 
costly price to pay for the in- 
troduction of something new.

Observatory’s future 

From Sir John Kingman, FRS 
Sir. By good fortune and foresight, 
British astronomers have been 
able to build modem telescopes on 
what are probably foe two best 
sites in the world: Mauna Kea on 
Hawaii, run by the Royal Obser- 
vatory in Edinburgh, and La 
Palma in the Canaries, run by the 
Royal Greenwich Observatory’ at 
Hersimonceux. Both establish- 
ments have been very successful 
in developing the techniques for 
managing their overseas obser- 
vatories, for data transmission 
and remote operation and for 
design and construction of in- 
struments which enable full 
advantage to be taken of these 
splendid sites. 

As a result, British astronomers 
are entering a new era in which 
they have access bv- right to 
observations never before pos- 
sible. It is crucial that the limited 
resources availabk should be used 
for astronomy rather than for the 
overheads of establishments far 
from the telescopes. It is also an 
unnecessary luxury to maintain' 
two separate bases doing very 
much the same job. 

• The Science and Engineering 
Research Council is therefore 
right . W consider merging (he 
Edinburgh and Hersimonceux 
bases if, as its chairman (May 10) 
suggests, the investment in doing 
so pays for itself over a few years. 
There would be considerable 

advantage in siting the base on or 
near a university with strong 
interests in the technologies in- 
volved in modem astronomy. 

The obvious and simplest solu- 
tion is to move the La Palma 
support from Hersimonceux to 
Edinburgh, to produce a strong 
base for the whole ground-based 
astronomy operation (outside foe 
radio band). If. as I believe; foe La 
Palma observatory can then be 
managed as effectively from Edin- 
burgh as is that on Mauna Kea. 
British astronomy will indeed 
have a golden future.

From the Chairman of the Science 
and Engineering Research Coun- 

Sir, Mr Kenneth Warren (May 24) 
is "dismayed” foal the SERC 
called a press conference to report 
on the location of the Royal 
Greenwich Observatory for 
March 20 before the Council’s 
meeting on March 19. He omits 
the tact that Council discussed the 
issue extensively on January 20 
and set in train a study of specific 
options which it would refine on 
March 19. Because of the wide- 
spread interest, calliug of a press 
conference to- report on the dis- 
cussion. whatever its outcome, 
was clearly prudent. 

Amongst the eight university 
sites, including Sussex, which 
were visited between January and 
March there was not one - whose 
representatives (vice-chancellors 
and astronomers) did not express 
enthusiasm for the idea of having 
the RGO on their campus. 

In common with foe majority 
view of the Kingman working 
party. Council decided unani- 
mously on March 19 that RGO 
should move and invited opinions 
on three options. Opinions have 
been sought from every depart- 
ment in receipt of a relevant SERC 
gram, from The Royal Society, 
from the Royal Astronomical 
Society and from foe staff of the 
observatories. I have also dis- 
cussed these matters with repre- 
sentatives of the staff of the RGO 
in November, February and May. 

The Council was objective and 
impartial in its debate and is 
second to none in its concern for 
the future health of UK astron- 
omy. That it considered wider 
issues than the local ones does not 
make their proposal “prepos- 
terous" as the distinguished mem- 
ber for Hastings and Rye describes

[Death of 
Lord Kitchener] 

High in fame with the masses of j 
his countrymen and in the esteem 
and confidence of all the Allies, in 
the unabated vigour of his powers, 
at the bands or the enemy and in 
the discharge of duty. LORD 
has died a soldier's death. He was 
on his way, in the Hampshire, to 
take counsel with our Russian 
partners, when a mine or a torpedo 
sank the ship on Monday night. 
Thus once again within a week the 
seas exact from us their heavy toll. 
For himself it is an enviable fate. 
He has died in harness, as befits 
one of the most strenuous and 
unwearying workers of his time. At 
a period when the cokl shadows of 
advancing age begin to gather 
round the indomitable, his great 
career has ended in frill coarse. He 
has been spared the cruel con- 
sciousness of having outlived his 
power of work. And be has seen the 
main achievement with which his 
name will live accomplished and 
complete. It is the great armies 
that he called into being which will 
enable England to do her part in 
winning the fiercest and the most 
momentous of all the wan that she 
waged. They are his living 
monument, and no nobler monu- 
ment has been raised to man. 

. . .It was largely because they 
put faith in the iron resulution 
which they ascribed to this raid, 
impassive, silent man that our 
people trusted him so frilly. It was 
his doggedness in doing the work 
that he was set to do that won 
them, because it was ak in to their 
own temperament- He bad none of 
foe gifts by which politicians woo 
their favours. He was no orator. He 
did not seem to court the multi- 
tude. He had lew friends. It was in 
a strange loneliness that he trod 
the path of doty but he trod ft, as 
they firmly believed, with a stern 
and unwavering purpose. The pop- 
ular estimate of all great men is 
always subject to large corrections 
and reserve which time alone can 
fully provide. That LORD 
KITCHENER had the insight to 
grasp the magnitude of this war 
from the outset, and to realize what 
immense efforts would be needed 
to win it, is beyond dispute. He saw 
the truth at once, and be at once 
threw the whole weight of bk 
prestige and all the force of bit 
strong character into the task of 
providing England with the annies 
essential to safety and to victory. 
That he might under different 
conditions have provided them by 
simpler means, that his outlook 
was necessarily limited by his 
concentration on a single task, that 
the result was a series of difficult 
changes tardily brought about - all 
this is is still the commonplace of 
argument. But they are doubts that 
have lost their practical impor- 
tance. and the time, perhaps,, has 
pot yet come when they can be seen 
in their true perspective. 

defects of his qualities. He loved to 
concentrate everything into his 
own hands, and he shrank from 
delegating his powers, even when 
delegation was really indispensable 
for the efficient dispatch of 
business ... 

His work in Egypt and the 
Sudan has already passed into 
history, and his fame would be 
secure if it were to rest on that 
work along. No later judgment can 
seriously affect foe record of his 
great collaboration wiri^ LORD 
CROMER: _ the long 'years of 
patient labour which in the end 
reclaimed the Sudan from barba- 
rism by a single smashing blow. 

His work in South Africa and in 
India, like his work at the War 
Office, is still to a greater extent 
tbe subject of contemporary con- 
troversy. The South African War 
involved him in the political and 
military discussions which it pro- 
voked at borne. India brought him 
face to face with another dominant 
personality and an acute constitu- 
tional quarrel. But the blockhouse 
lines on the veld reveal the same 
qualities of patience and persever- 
ance which recovered the Sudan, 
and India, irrespective of the 
ultimate cause of the dispute, has 
good reason to be grateful today for 
the seven years of vigorous reorga- 
nization which KITCHENER de- 
voted to her army. 

In the formation of the new 
armies these powers were exhibited 
once more and in a supreme degree. 
Tbe splendid forces he raised have 
begun long since to prove in the 
firing line tbe care and thorough- 
ness with which they were created. 
The man to whom we owe them 
had nothing left to do in life which 
could steel them for foe conflict so 
surely as bis soldier's death.

This news has yet to reach the

Here the aesthetics of the

World has several advantages 
over its rival: it cannot be 
previewed; it can respond to 
current events in the garden, 
like the present dismal weath-

more creative. However, it has 
one severe handicap: BBC

Circe and Bravo 


Stars of the screen have been 
known to permit errors . of 
judgement when considering a 
return to the stage. The gran- 
de urof a character's name is 
taken as a mark of the quality 
of the role as, for example, 
that of the wife or mistress of a 
famous dictator. Or they can 
be misled by opportunities for 
eloquent passion, as in some- 
thing tragic from the Greek. 

Wisely, for her first appear- 
ance on the English stage Faye 
Dunaway has chosen an intel- 
ligent and stimulating play by 
the American writer Donald 
Freed, which provides her 
with a long role, almost a 
monologue, and a showpiece 
for a range of emotions. Her 
partner. Stephen Jenn, is an 
accomplished actor and the 
play's director is Harold 

But in a sense she is playing 
both a famous dictator’s wire 
and something from the 
Greek, for her role is that, of 
First Lady of the United 
States, codenamed Circe. Ac- 

cording to Freed, and it may 
be true, all members of the 
Presidential court have code- 
names drawn from Greek 
legends. Kissinger was Ajax. 
The President himself is Pri- 
am, which suggests that some- 
one in the CIA has not read to 
the end of his Iliad. 

The lights go up on a wide, 
expensive living room (sex by 
Eileen Diss) that could be 
from one of Pinter's own 
plays. But this is Camp David, 
famed mountain retreat of the 
Priams of this world. It is 
being inspected by a young SS 
man — Secret Service not Ge- 
stapo, though the author may 
see little difference. This un- 
smiling clone is trained to be 
neat and orderly, and if policy 
required the elimination of the 
wife of the President that will 
have to be neat and orderly 

Haunted by her knowledge 
of nuclear secrets but true to 
her codename. Circe sets 
about the life-saving attempt 
to bewitch him. This seemingr 
ly impossible task is the 
matter of the play.

Exploring the psychology of totalitarianism 

The Act 
Royal Exchange, 

The second of this week's new 
offerings is also the second 
work to be staged at ibis 
address from the short-list of 
the Mobil Play writing compe- 
tition (the first, the joint- 
winner Mumbo Jumbo , has 
surely earned a London run). 
This new three-hander The 
Act apparently required four 
years' labour by its author 
Richard Langridge: there is 
some evidence that the time 
has been spent whittling the 
piece down instead of building 
it up. 

Mr Langridge’s inspiration 
was the story of a group of 
concentration camp inmates 
charged with removing the 
bodies from the ovens, who 
staged a mock trial of God, 
found Him guilty and then, 
perversely, returned to their 
prayers. This story is spelled 
out by an SS officer (Rory 
Edwards) who has himself 
written a trial scenario to be 
enacted for morale-boosting 
purposes in the dark days of 
1943: he will play the judge, 
the inmates will play the 
witnesses for the defence, and 
“God”, arraigned for treason, 
will occupy an empty chair. 

It is unfortunate that the 
original anecdote should 

make so early an appearance 
in the proceedings: having 
suggested what is about to 
happen, the script has nothing 
left to deliver. 

The action is introduced by 
the arrival of a pair of seedy 
cabaret comics who have been 
delivered by car to the 
commandant's office, for they 
know not what purpose. The 
most blase and composed of 
them, we learn (again, dam ag- 
ing! y early on) is a Jew who 
has managed to survive co- 
vertly and precariously — only 
when the true nature of their 
new surroundings dawns on 
them, and the SS officer begins 
to rehearse them in their roles 
of prosecution and defence 

counsel for the forthcoming 
entertainment does bis posi- 
tion become untenable: he 
turns surly: he cannot eat the 
supper lard on for thenr he 
stans to “dry". 

This is a macabre set-up 
which might have provided an 
opportunity to explore the 
psychology of totalitarianism 

— the “thinking” of its propo- 
nents and the shifts and 
evasions of its fellow travellers 

— if only the three roles had 
not been fashioned from pre- 
cast concrete. We expect the 
Nazi to be evil, and so he is; 
we expect the Gentile clown to 
cover up for his Jewish col- 
league. and so he does. In 
failing to develop the situation 

along any but the straightest 
lines, the play acquires all the 
authority of a polemical tract 
written 40 years too late. 

Caspar Wrede’s production 
is measured, mostly calm in 
tone, and pretty thin on 
locality — the beastliness of 
the camp being characterized 
by a sporadic sound-track of 
machine-gun fire, rolling- 
stock (“RausT etc) marching 
boots, alarm bells and wailing 
voices. David Horovitch and 
Jonathan Hackett, the co- 
opted clowns, have not been, 
told where they are: in dra- 
matic terms, they never find

This concert ended as the

Chopin's Bolero , Op 1 9. It was 
an immensely idiomatic per-

melody, the accompaniment 
rhy thms rapped out _ with 
proud precision. Earlier in this 
Chopin group Horszowski

magnificence but the overall 
impression was of drama 
skinned to its leanest 

Before the interval there 
were several im precisions but 
they never seriously marred 
appreciation of the d i g n i fi ed 
simplicity in- the classical rep- 
ertoire for which this pianist 
has long been celebrated. His 
expositions of two fugues 
from Bach’s Weil-tempered 
Clavier were text book models 
of bow to delineate voice 
entries without jeopardizing 
vertical texture. . . 

In Beethoven’s Sonato in D 
Op 28, he reminded us that 
sjorzando markings can be 
just as effectively conveyed by 
lengthening notes as by ham- 
mering them; while in 
Mozart’s D minor Fantasia,. 
K397, his avoidance of cus- 
tomary romantic shading pro- 
duced a noteably clear, 
uncluttered reading. 

Best of all, perhaps, was his 
account of Debussy’s 
Children's Comer. Watching 
this diminutive figure, head 
frequently bent low over the 
keys, evoking these useful 
cameos so zestfully, was a' 
poignant and also a humbling 
experience. . .

Scylla et Glaucus 

Theatre Royal 

History keeps becoming more 
complicated. It was possible to 
cope with the idea of Rameau 
as the solitary genius of 
French opera in the mid- 
eighteenth century, but now 
along comes Ledair, whom 
the textbooks had neatly rele- 
gated to the violin, and proves 
that all the sensuous dazzle 
and fresh magnificence were 
available to him as welL Last 
night's concert performance of 
Scylla et Glaucus revealed a 
work of startling pleasure. 

The story comes from Ovid 
and it is a treatment of a 
common theme: how terrible 
things will happen if the just 
claims of love are denied. The 
nymph Scylla refuses all her 
suitors, and so one of them, 
the minor sea deity Glaucus, 
seeks the aid of the enchant- 
ress Circe. 

Bath Festival 

In the way of these things. 
Circe fells for him. but she is 
persuaded to relinquish her 
claims when she sees his love 
for Scylla: the scene for the 
three of them is the musical- 
dramatic crux of the opera, 
and it well demonstrates 
Ledair'5 ability to weld differ- 
ent characters and changing 
emotions into a fluent stretch 
of recitative. 

Much of the best music 
occurs in the last two of the 
five acts. Apart from the long 
conversational trio, there is 
the vivid conjuration of Hec- 
ate. who lakes the form a tenor 
accompanied by gruff cello 
tremolandos. Then the final 
act has a nobly graced aria for 
Glaucus, the delicious slow 
triple-time song for Scylla and 
chorus followed by a tam- 
bourin (less earthy than Ra- 
meau would have made it), 
and a wild symphony to depict 

the heroine's fete and end the 
opera in foil tragedy. 

Here and in ail the other 
orchestral music the English 
Baroque Soloists played up to 
Mr Gardiner's usual vivacity, 
though one could wish the 
strings made sounds as ingra- 
tiating as those of the wood- 
wind. particularly the flutes, 
and the rounded, almost horn- 
like bassoons. 

There were also divergent 
approaches in the singing, not 
at all unsuitably. The longest 
and much the most varied 
pan is Circe’s and Rachel 
Yakar brought to it the feeling 
response to words: the tragedy 
became hers much more than 
Scylla's and Glaucus'. Howard 
Crook as the latter offered an 
eminently stylish muscular 
lyricism, and Donna Brown as 
Scylla sang throughout with a 
radiant beauty of tone and 
careful phrasing.

Curzm Street, lumton Wl. 01-499373/ 

Zubin Mehta’s return to Flor- 
ence. as artistic director of this 
year’s Maggio Musicale. cul- 
minates a 25-year musical 
love affair. He made his debut 
there, still relatively unknown, 
in I960: four years later in 
Florence he conducted opera 
for the first time in Europe. 
This Traviaia and a celebrated 
Tosco in 1965 cemented the 
relationship. Was he daunted 
in those days by conducting 
Italian opera in front of Ital- 
ians? “No. I am now. But 
when you're young you have 
what the Jews call chutzpah. 1 
did Mahler One for the first 
lime in my life with the Berlin 
Philharmonic 1 wasn't daunt- 
ed by that either." 

One suspects that Mehta — 
just turned 50. former chief 
conductor of the Montreal 
Symphony and Los Angeles 
Philharmonic orchestras, cur- 
rent music director ofboth the 
New York and Israel Philhar- 
monics — still has a bit of 
chutzpah left in him. He 
describes this Maggio Musi- 
cale programme as “a party 
for all my friends, completely 
reflecting my taste”

In aid of 
The Salisbury 
Spire Trust 

The party has already be- 
gun. with Berio conducting his 
opera La vera storia, but 
Mehta’s main contributions 
are Die \fcistcrsingcr (not 
heard in Italy for over 30 
years): Tosca in a Jonathan 
Miller production rumoured 
to update the opera to the 
Mussolini era: Gurreticder, 
and. to end the Maggio, 
Verdi’s Requiem in the open- 

He is confident that the 
Florence Opera Orchestra will 
rise to the challenge of all this, 
if only because (as the 
orchestra's musical advisor) 
he recruited many of its 
players himself. Was it any 
section specifically that need- 
ed strengthening? “No, they, 
were basically a second-rate 
orchestra, equal in all sections. 
But now the Italians have 
accepted that Italy is not 
producing the right quality of 
orchestral player. We have 
added some Israeli strings and 
some American brass, and it 
has given a whole new sheen 
and leadership. Nobody now 
says: Oh. that player is Amer- 
ican. so he can't play Italian 
music properly*.” 

Mehta's revision of Italian 
musical attitudes has not been 
so successful with singers. 
“German. English and Ameri- 
can singers are more flexible, 
more instrumental in outlook.’ 
With people like Jessye Nor- 
man and Janet Baker you can 
discuss things, effect changes. 

“For instance. I've just 
heard Luciano [Pavarotti] 

singing on television. He took 
the big A ida aria at exactly the 
same tempo as with me. 
because that’s the way it’s 
sitting in his voice. It's no use 
for Lorin [Maazell or myself 
to tell him it's too fasL It is too 
fesu actually." 

Warming to the thorny 
subject of tenors. Mehta re- 
calls working with Jon 
Vickers. “I did Otcllo with 
him early in my career. It 
didn't go too well, on my part 
either. The Met had given me 
only three rehearsals: it just 
wasn't fair on a young conduc- 
tor. with a personality like 
Vickers on the stage. All you 
do is give in. constantly. But 
when we did it in Montreal for 
Expo 67 we really worked at 
that second act 1 pushed, 1 
controlled it from the pit: it 
was wonderful." It would be 
revealing to know which occa- 
sion Vickers preferred. 

These battles of will-power 
with . singers .pale beside 
Mehta's encounters with or- 
chestras. He has two of the 
world's least enviable manage- 
ment tasks: being simulta- 
neously in charge of the New 
York and Israel orchestras. A 
few years ago in New York, 
when Mehta instituted what 
he euphemistically describes 
as “a little clean-up. because 
they needed it”, there was 
considerable tension between 
maestro and musicians. “You 
know how. animosities grow. 
I'm an emotional person, they 
react. ! react to their reacting." 

To calm matters he inaugu- 

rated orchestral “problem 
sessions" — no playing, just 
talk. “Last year for instance a 
New York magazine printed a 
very nasty article againsr me, 
in which players were quoted 
anonymously. I said ‘look. I'd 
like to discuss the points 
you've been talking to the 
press about.' 

“Well, they were shocked, 
because they've done this 
before, to Boulez, to Rodzin- 
ski. But I still wanted to talk, 
so we had a very' honest 
session about pertinent things. 
Somehow the air cleared. On 
the European tour after that 
they played every night like 
they* were the New York 

Mehta is aware that these 
two orchestras, for better or 
worse, are seen as flagships for 
the American and Israeli ways 
of life. He took the New 
Yorkers to Dresden, the first 
time any American orchestra 
had been there: “Yes. it was a 
bit of a political 
demonstration", he admits. 
“Similarly I want to take the 
Israel Philharmonic to Cairo 
one day.” 

Why does he rarely appear 
with British orchestras? “! 
don't like guest conducting." 
he replies, perhaps diplomati- 
cally. And what about his 
return to Covent Garden? 
“Well, we are talking. I had a 
rather questionable time in 
1984. But it was nobody's 
fault, just one of those things.’’ 


of music 

One of my abiding memories 
of radio is of Ralph Ricterd- 
son as Captain Ahab m M&P 
Dick, intoning the name of his 
adversary as if it were a corse, 
and in a maimer which con- 
veved an understanding of his 
obsession far more effectively 
than the original no*cL But I 
wonder about such memories 
- how many of them would 
survive a hearing now? We do 
not often get the chance » 
find out. However, on Friday 
a week ago. Radio 3 provKW 
one exception with a repeat or 
the Old Vic production of 
peer Gym which Tyrone 
Guthrie adapted for radio 
back in 1943. and in which 
again I remember Richardson 
for a remarkable performance. 
How did it stand up after 43 

years? , , 

1 set out to sample the 
broadcast and ended up un- 
able to turn it off- This 
remains a marvellous bit of 
acting by Sir Ralph. You may 
say that having played himself 
into Halt stage, he already bad 
a huge advantage over radio 
acting m general. This does 
not follow: success on stage 
may spell disaster in th e 
studio unless the interpreta- 
tion is rethought. What we 
beard here was huge, protean, 
mad. reflective, sombre, but 
ail exactly as it should have 
been when the communica- 
tion is not across footlights but 
between an actor and people 
listening at home in ones and 
twos and threes. It was a 
tremendous performance for 

More unexpectedly, 
Guthrie's production stood up 
almost as well. A director of 
today might choose not to 
employ a pair of narrators or if 
he did. their contribution 
would be minimal. Here, sub- 
stantial pans had been written 
in for them, and it must be 
said that these rather dot the 
f s and cross the t’s, explaining 
in advance what the ensuing 
dialogue was going to make 
quite dear enough. But this 
apart and with some allow- 
ance for the sound quality of 
1943 (though even that stood 
up), the whole undertaking 
came over very wefl_ What we 
were hearing was a large cast, 
foil orchestra, choir, and 
sound effects all put together 
without benefit of tape-record- 
er. What has technology given 
radio drama that really en- 
hances the listener’s experi- 
ence? . It may. even have 
dimished it forwhat this Peer 
Gvm emanated; rand what ir 
absent from today's large pr 
ductions, was a sense t - 
occasion. Perhaps that is why 
there are not more revivals — 
in case we should notice: 

At the last two Sony 
Awards, it was Radio 4 which 
ran off with the classical music 
programme prizes, and 1 can 
see this happening again if the 
first of a group of Sunday 
evening programmes is any- 
thing to go by. Wood Magic 
(Radio 4; producers, lan 
Cotterell and Patrick Lam- 
bert) was an extended sketch 
fora life of Edward Elgar done 
with exceptional restraint and 
sensitivity. The text, written 
and compiled by Michael 
Kennedy, fused effortlessly 
with the music which had 
been limited to what could 
legitimately be performed by 
John Bingham on piano and 
the Medici Siring Quartet. 
The effect was intimate, as of 
the composer talking of his life 
to a few friends and providing 
with them bis own musical 
illustrations. All this led into 
and culminated in a complete 
performance of the Piano 
QuinteL just as tomorrow's 
programme about Smetana 
will end with his Quartet No 1. 

NATO: A Time For Change 
(Radio 4, last three Sundays; 
producer. Blair Tom son) has 
been an examination by Chris- 
topher Lee; the BBC’s Defence 
and Foreign Affairs Corre- 
spondent The first two pro- 
grammes dealt with the 
history of NATO while the 
last, in the form of a discus- 
sion of experts at Chatham 
House before an invited audi- 
ence, took a look at the 
alliance's present situation. It 
is saying something about the 
other two that this last pro- 
gramme was actually the most 
lucid and informative of the 
three, since these are not 
vinues always to be associated 
with public discussions. 

The history of NATO is a 
very complex topic, but this 
senes made it a good deal 
harder to grasp than it need 
have been.

J ust after 3 JO last 
Wednesday after- 
noon, the world's 
greatest flat race got 
under way on Ep- 
som Downs. In the 
Taitenham Enclosure, serried 
ranks of parked coaches had 
been in position since soon 
after breakfast. Wedged be- 
tween them, trestle tables 
groaned under the weight of 
the year’s most alcobolicprc- 
nic and, by standing on top of 
the tabjes or balancing peril- 
ously oh the roofs of the buses 
themselves, the more sober 
and more athletic of the 
revellers were able to glimpse 
the horses as they sped to- 
wards the finishing post 
Behind them, just 30 yards 
from the course, some hun- 
dred racegoers in a splendidly 
appointed, marquee required 
no such sobriety or athleti- 
cism. A luncheon of salmon 
and coronation chicken safely 
digested, they had just collec- 
tively embarked on .their 
eighth case of champagne. 
Three red-skirted Tote girls 
had taken their bets and 
vanished through the crowds. 
And Derby. Day's most privi- 
leged guests were watching the 
proceedings — on television. 

If they saw anything incon- 
gruous in having battled 
through traffic jams to see the 
race on a couple of screens 
little larger than the ones they 
had left in their sitting-rooms, 
nothing in their, animated 
enthusiasm displayed the facL 
Having a carefree day off 
from the rigours of the office, 
and accompanied. 'by bus- 
bands or wives, they were fort 
of a 1980s phenormfeon which 
has sprung from nowhere to 
become a £30 million-a-year 
business. Corporate Hospital- 
ity — or, less respectfully, the 
Company Binge — is the name 
of the game. 

As recently as 1 977, the All- 
England Lawn Tennis Club 
had the brainwave of putting 
up just two marquees for 
Wimbledon fortnight and 
making them available for 
firms to entertain guests with 
whom they did — or hoped to 
do — business. During the 13 
days of last year’s Wimbledon. 
40,000 guests were wined and 
dined by 200 companies in 40 
marquees and were fcigdy

. “I think it's fair- to say that 
those statistics, accurately re- 
flect the rate with which 
corporate hospitality bas 
caught on in Britain”, says 
Town and Country's general 
manager, Mr Richard Tear. 

. If sport led the way in the 
expense account bonanza, just 
about every other kind of 
cultural ~ and .recreational 
event has been quick to latch 
on to .its potential: So wherev- 
er you elect to take yourselffor 
a day out this summer, the 
chances are that the people 
next to you are oh a “freebie”. 

To thecynical gaze; they are 
the Chelsea. Flower Show pa- 

irons who have difficulty in 
differentiating between a hyar 
drith and a hydrangea," and 
they are the Glynaebourne 
punters who thought 
Llncoronaziorie di Popped 
was ah Italian restaurant. If all 
other identification fails, they 
will almost certainly be the 
ones with a glass of buck's fizz 
in their band. More charita- 
bly. they — or rather, their 
hosts — are fast becoming the 
saints of the turnstile. 

With them has come a 
whole new industry: the cor- 
porate hospitality consultants. 
Having the obvious advantage 
of being the counity's leading 
ticket agency, Keith Prowse 
were first into the field in the 
early 1970s. Now, at least 10 
major consultancies and a 
legion of smaller entrepre- 
neurs are. engaged full-time in 
orchestrating the latest trend 
in business entertaining. 

Thus, in the Epsom mar- 
quee jointly provided by the 
Cavendish Consultancy and 
Town and County caterers, 
the First National Bank of 
Chicago was entertaining 30 of 
its foreign exchange chief offi- 
cers from all over the world; 
three executives of Mark 
McCormack's- International 
Management Group — no 
slouches in corporate hospital- 
ity themselves — were enjoy- 
ing the rare delight of being 
guests of a catering firm for a 
change; and Mike Whittaker 
and Murray Gale, sales direc- 
tor and general sales manager 
of Smiths Crisps, were attend- 
ing to the every need of a party 
of senior managers from a 
cash and carry combine. 

Lite every other social 
trend, the Corporate Binge bas 
already developed its own 
[ code of etiquette.' Would Mr 

Gale. I wondered, be putting 
in .the odd plug Jqr his 
company's 1986 price list or 
slipping a gift pack of Ready 
Salted into each lady's hand- 
bag? “Certainly not”, be said, 
and contrived to look mildly 
Shocked at the suggestion. 
“You don't talk business at 
these occasions. The only 
prices we’ll be discussing to- 
day are the horses’ starting 

The McCormack trio, 
whose own enterprise in the 
field has hoisted the number 
of hospitality marquees at 
Mark Phillips's Gatcombe 
Park horse trials from six in 
1983 to 17 this year, were 
equally positive that they were 
not trading in their freedom to 
change caterers with every sip 
of champagne. “It’s just a way 
of saying thank you to us”, 
explained Jeremy Palmer- 
Tonddnsoo. “It’s very impor- 
tant to build up good 
relationships with the people 
you work with. It's jolly nice 
here and we've had a wonder- 
ful day”. 

Their host seemed positive- 
ly amused by the way the 
conversation was going. 
“They'll go away from here 
and kick us in the butt without 
the slightest compunction”, he 
said. “Bui when they do, at 
least I'll know to whom to talk 
to try and get the business 
back”. -. 

— Despite the joy that 
corporate hospitality is bring- 
ing to the beleaguered treasur- 
ers of an ever-widening range 
of sporting and “cultural” 
events, il is not without its 
critics. Some, surprisingly, are 
to be found among the recipi- 
ents of the hospitality.

Smaller than life: at Epsom 
on Derby day, binoculars 
came a distant second to 
glasses of a different kind 

entertain clients without using 
an agency may lure guests 
with the bail of centre court 
tickets. They invite large num- 
bers lo their marquee but only 
obtain a mere handful of seals. 
Irritated guests who are genu- 
ine tennis fans have been 
known lo find themselves 
stuck in the tent all day and 
ushered to and from the court 
for only a few minutes of play. 

However, the most serious 
criticism of the Company 
Binge comes from the general 
public, who believe they are 
being prevented from getting 
tickets to sporting and cultural 
events because the companies 
and consultants have got in 
before them. Andrew H indie, 
a Cavendish director, denies 

the- charge. “We go direct to 
the organizers or through rep- 
utable ticket agencies and 
have no advantages over any- 
one else", he says. But his 
company is sensitive enough 
u> the allegation to omit the 
FA Cup Final from its 

For the same reason. 
Glynde bourne restricts com- 
panies to 20 seats For any new 
production and 40 for a 
revival. It concedes that many 
hospitality guests “haven't a 
due what they are coming to 
see”, but is deeply grateful for 
the support of its 225 corpo- 
rate members, ranging from 
giants like Barclays and 
Unilever to relative minnows 
such as firms of solicitors and 
estate agents. On occasions 
when tickets 3re unlimited, 
however, it is the more the 
merrier. The Open golf cham- 
pionship. for instance, now 
boasts the country's biggest 
“tented village”, in which 
about 100 companies enter- 
tain up to 40,000 guests over 
the four days at £75 per person 
per day. 

“With £600,000 in prize 
money alone, the Open costs 
something like £2 million to 
stage", the Royal and Ancient 
Golf Club's secretary. Michael 
Bonallack, says, “and al- 
though the tented village pro- 
vides considerably less than 
half this required income, it is 
an essential part of the balance 

Not surprisingly. Peter 
Lawson, secretary of the Insti- 
tute of Sports Sponsorship, is 
also much in favour of the 
corporate hospitality scene. 
“Very often companies first 
introduced to a sport because 
one of its directors was invited 

as a guest become so enam- 
oured that they end up as full- 
scale sponsors of a particular 
event". A more convincing 
argument, perhaps, is that 
Lawson, who is also secretary 
of the Central Council for 
Physical Recreation, finds no 
clash between his commercial 
and altruistic roles. 

Meanwhile, back 3t Epsom, 
six o'clock approached and 

someone shouted last orders. 
The twelfth and last case of 
champagne was instantly 
snapped up and Cavendish's 
sales director, Alastair Young, 
saved a bottle for himself. 

“I think everyone’s enjoyed 
themselves", he said wearily. 
"Now it's off lo Lord's for the 
Test match...”

cooH he squeezed oat as corporate guests are squeezed In 

So widespread has 
corporate entertaining become 
that just about everything, 
from the World Cup final in 
Mexico City (a snip at 
£l .950 per head) to the Henley 
Arts Festival — including 
the Lord Mayor's Show — is 
now on the list 
It is scarcely surprising, 
therefore, that specialist 
agencies are fast 
developing an instinct for who 
likes to take whom to 
what — and why. It is all a 
question, apparently, of 
horses for courses. 

"Most companies 
recognize the importance of 
the ladies", one 
consultancy boss said, "if the 
ladies are happy, then so 
are their husbands. And if the 
husbands are happy, then 
it's all good for business". 
Thus, by this suspiciously 
chauvinistic yardstick^ 
bankers, insurance 
companies and men from the 
City fail over themselves to 
book tables for “dressy" 
occasions Tike Ascot, the 
Cheltenham Gold Cup, Henley 
Regatta and the Berkeley 
Square Ball in July. They are 
joined at the ball by 
advertising agendas and PR 

companies, whose "public 
school image" Is also well 
served by such esoteric 
rugby events as the Varsity 
match and the Middlesex 

Shooting and fishing week- 
ends. especially at stately 
homes, are particularly 
favoured by ofl companies and 
dgarette firms, who like to 
flatter their customers that they 
are returning to the manor 
bom; car manufacturers and 
i chains prefer the ■

head and free ear-plugs). 
enthusiasm is displayed for 
Glyndeboume, the Royal 
Shakespeare Company and 
polo on Smiths Lawn - 
"those who understand it love 
it and those who don't 
want to give it a go" -whereas 
firms wanting to reward 
then- top sales people plump 
for snooker evenings and 
boxing nights at the National 
Sporting Club. 

The bottom line? "Drinks 
firms taking out pub 
landlords”, said my 
informant "It's darts and local 
race meetings for them - 
with plenty of beer laid on".

I n Aldeburgh yon can 
smell ■ the sea every-

stealthily like a cat bur- 
glar artful, so that its clammy 
touch stays with you. in your 
clothes and on your skin. And

by our native poet George

This agent Is melancholy. If 
you think that's bad enough, 
try reading Crabbe's The Bor- 
ough right through: you'd 
never come near the place. 
Not everyone goes overboard 
about Aldebuigh: . . that 
miserable, dull sea village", 
wrote Virginia Woolf, -but 
Carlyle thought otherwise: 
"... a beautiful little sea 
towp". Although he did add a 
cryptic rider "If you have yet 
gone nowhere, you should 
think of Aldeburgh". What 
could he have meant? 

I think this is what he 
meant: Aldeburgh is, literally, 
on the road to nowhere- Being 
several miles off the main 
highway, you go in and you 
come out. specifically . Not 
only is the town connected by 
a geographical passage; it is 
also a psychological isthmus, 
its inhabitants insulating 
themselves from the profligate 
behaviour out there. They say 
that some very rich, very 
worldly figures have found 
asylum in Aldeburgh. 

Who says? My old friend 
Charles Cowley, vicar of the 
neighbouring parish of 
Aldnngham, for one. ““Hie 
place is packed with 
eccentrics. The festival? It was 
elitist at first, the pubs braying 
with artistic accents and ghast- 
ly cocktail party chatter. But 
today it doesn't pretend to be a 

Exotic though 


BESY 5 ^^^ festival, now 
OF BRITAIN under way, may 
be, the town is indelibly English. 
Michael Watkins begins a new series 

local festival: it's professional, 
efficiently organized — and 
good for local business, the 
shops, galleries and so on." 

Charles says he has just 
retired after 25 years here but I 
don't believe him. He'll still be 
doing his Sunday ad at St 
Andrew's: his "bionic act" or 
“one-arm bandit” show, as it 
is known. Years ago he had an 
arm sliced off in a Canadian 
biscuit factory and it is not 
unheard-of for him to take as 
his test Matthew, Chapter V: 
"And if thy right hand offend 
thee, cut it off. and cast it from 
thee With which he detaches 
his tin limb, hurling it clatter- 
ing up the aisle. 

If, as Crabbe insists, there 
was no natural music in 
Aldebuigh, perhaps this is 
why Britten and Pears began 
manufacturing the goodly 

stuff. At first, m 1948, it was a 
cottage industry. One perfor- 
mance of Albert Herring, two 
of Saint Nicholas, 10 concerts, 
10 lectures, and receipts total- 
ling £2,800. Heaven knows 
what it adds up to now. But it 
has changed Aldeburgh which, 
each June, becomes as cosmo- 
politan as Salzburg or San 
Francisco and thus becomes 
something it is not

S^hts and sounds: students of the Britteo-Pears School of Music break from rehearsal at 
the Snape Mai tings and (top right) the porch of ‘Pembroke’, with its nautical flavour 

the Moot Hall, no doubt, 
Aldebuigh 's classical remind- 
er that the 16th century was its 
noblest period. Although, to- 
day, its ocean view is impaired 
by the pressing needs of the 
mock-Tudor public lavatory. 

At number 22 High Street 
we see that Joyce is an Artist 
in Hair, while a few doors 
along the Bookshop's window 
display is in such heroic 
disarray that it must be art of 
some grand design. 

The Aldeburgh Fish & Chip 
Shop (frying 11.45ara- 
1.45pm, 5-9pm) sells smoked 
salmon as well, which should 
tell you a thing or two about 
the burghers hereabouts. The 
Festival Office is doing a 
roaring trade. "Fully Booked” 
stamped daily across Janet 
Baker and the Upper Deben 
Undulations Walking Tour. 
Yet it is very circumspect and 

Along Cragg Path. Rover is 
taking his roan for a walk, 
trailing his tail against the 
whipping wind from Mur- 
mansk. These promenade 
houses are identical yet not 

the same at all: here a Gnder- 
ella turret, there a lifebelt 
stuck above the porch of 
"Pembroke*'. . But each and 
every one exudes a Baptist 
rectitude, a no-male-visitors- 
after-6pm clause in the letting 
terms. Open the door and die 
passage will contain a 
shrimping net, straw hats, 
siringiess tennis racket and. 
mildewed copies of John 


Idebuigh, in other 
words, is indelibly 
English. The En- 
gland of Winnie-the- 
Pooh, Elgar, Beecham's 
Powder and St George; not the 
England which survived pret- 
ty well intact until temporarily 
incommoded by Herr Hitler. 

Suddenly I wonder where 
everyone has gone? Soon after 
midday Aldebuigh becomes 
as deserted as midnight in 

I find them, almost the 
entire population, in the Cross 
Keys Inn which sells draught 
Adnams from nearby 
Southwold. They do a 

ploughman's lunch, too: an 
altogether fonder collation 
than, the old Suffolk boys ever 
took into the fields. 

ft is cosy in the low- 
ceilinged bar parlour, a for cry 
from the Aldeburgh of Crabbe, 
who grew up among the poor 
and, although he is considered 
their poet, could never bring 
himself to like them. It was 
fashionable in his day to 
believe that the Great Un- 
washed were colourful shep- 
herds and shepherdesses, 
tiptoeing through the dew, 
fornicating amid the butter- 
cups. ecstatic with their Iol 
But Crabbe knew the alms- 
house, the prison, the eariy 
deaths; and he never quite 
forgave the poor the sordid 
facts of their poverty. 

The basic premise about 
festivals is that they should be 

festive: and Aldeburgh’s Jubi- 
lee Hall, where it started, is as 
festive as a tooth cavity. 
Which led — once the cadi 
began to flow — to the 
conversion of Snape Mailings, 
a 19th-century industrial mas- 
terpiece, into a concert halL ■ 

It burned down, rising 
pboe nix-like from the ashes to 
its existing form; and whether 
one approves that form is a 
persona! matter. Less digest- 
ible are the appendages: the 
Wholefoods Store. Granary 
Tea Shop. Lady Moyra river 
trip. Craft Shop. Countrywear, 
River Bar ("king prawns”) 
and a lot more besides. 

If you turn your bade physi- 
cally on these trappings, the 
idyll remains unembeUished; 
for the heart of the matter, 
whatever Crabbe thought, lies 
out there on the river, among 
the marshes where there is 
great music of another kind:- 
the crank jmd gabble of wild 
geese, the wind coaxing 
strange notes from reed beds. . 

Ask me if I like Aldeburgh 
and I wilf give you my true' 
answer. Yes, ! like Aldebuigh: 
it moves me deeply — for IT 
months of the year. *

cream or butter, either of which ahn softens

iBThe case of fats, cunmg down ispenerally 
more successful than cutting out. Thus rich 
emitisiOQ sauces like mayonnaise and boUan- 
daise can : be lightened considerably by 
substituting yoghurt for up to half the usual 
amounts of butter or' oil Very fresh yogurt 
which was chilled as soon as it had set, tastes 
milder and less sharp than long incubated 
yogurt. The alternative is to think afresh, to ex- 
periment with herb-flavoured vegetables pu- 
rges: to use sesame paste instead of egg yolks as 
a base for emulsion sauces; .to whip up rich 
tastingcreamy dressings that are also low in fat 
using ripe avocados or high protein tofu. 

Paddings, too. are being revolutionized as 
more of. us begin to prefer, the true tastes of 
barely sweetened fresh fruit sauces in place of 
thick cream. 

Yellow or red peppers make brilliantly 
coloured silky purges to serve with meat, fish 
or vegetable dishes. Vary the stock used 
accordingly, bearing in mind that the better 
the stock the better the sauce will be. And use 
really ripe peppers for maximum flavour.

Pork pies hit for six 

Cricket suggests one gamut of 
gasiro cliches — vac-pack 
cheese rollSv loathsome pork 
pies, lager by the yard. Crick- 
ets, those insects, suggest quite 
another — olives, wine, aioli, 
purplish descriptions of that 
miraculously undiscovered 
place outside Orange 
where. . : Your tummy inev- 
itably votes for the latter. 

The trouble is cicadas aren't 
much of a spectacle, whereas 
there are few sights more 
liable to whet the appetite for 
red meat than that of Joel 
Gamer tiying to remove Da- 
vid Gower's head from his 

So how do we combine a 
dismaying morning during 
which England struggle to S3 
for 7, with a lunch that may 
only pretend to be French but 
which is at least better than 
the said pork pies? The answer 
is that at most grounds we 
don't. At Lord’s, however, 
there is a surfeit of choice. 

Ail that should impede you 
as you head north up Abbey 
Road (seven to ten minutes, 
according to stride) are 
Scanda-hippies .photograph- 
ing that zebra crossing and the 
sight of a house, 12 Langford 
Place, which in lan Naim's 
words Tradiates malevolence 
as unforgettably as I ago". . 

L’A venture looks not a bit 
like .lhaL The aspiration is 
pastoral sweet — something to 
do with the art of living in an 
incredibly tastefully refur- 
bished farmhouse in Berry or 
Poitou or somewhere else that 
defies immediate identifica- 
tion. The aspiration is realized 
with stripped waxed wood, 
Liberty prim cotton, a rough 
tapestry of a farmyard and 
cheery peasants, randomly 
disposed bottles of recondite 

The cooking matches: it is 
illusorily rustic it draws on 
rather than creates country 
dishes — it is thus archetypi- 
cafly bourgeois. This is proba- 

The traditional fare at cricket matches 
is pretty dull. Jonathan Meades goes 
in search of grace to match W.G. at 
three French restaurants near Lord’s 

bly the only place in London 
that has ever served a drink- 
able Pinot Noir d* Alsace, and 
its most consistently appeal- 
ing enute — thickish pieces of 
veal in a sauce' of morels and 
cream served with fresh noo- 
dles - is also of vaguely 
Alsatian provenance. 

Starters like a courgette 
mousse with anchovy sauce or 
a salad of duck confit with the 
familiarly fashionable leaves 
are less authentically 
“regionaT but pretty good 
anyhow. One of the ubiqui- 
tous cliches of recent M-O-R 
French cooking, salmon with 
sorrel is presented with no 
great elan — overcooked fish, 
blunt sauce. 

But the cheeses are kepi in 
lop nick and tend towards the 
soft and rich: Briilat Savarin, 
Epoisses. Chamberlin. Sweets 
are no less rich — a chocolate 
truffle the size of a small apple 
slumps on a lilo of creme 
Chantilly, the conventional 
word for this is “wicked". 

The conventional word for 
the patronne here is 
“vivacious": she is an energet- 
ic young Frenchwoman who 
lalks to her punters in a CSE 
version of her native language 
and stagily accented English. 
How much of this free-range 
charm you can take will 
depend on how your side has 
done that morning. The ser- 
vice is otherwise conducted by 
a couple of her young compa- 
triots. very willing mecs with 
indifferent memories. There's 
a decent 1978 Lirac from 
Barbier which will bring the 
bill to about £50. 

La Frimousse announces on 

its book-matches that it's in St 
John's Wood. Anyone else, 
apart from an estate agent, 
would call the area West 
Hampstead. Anyone else 
would also cafl their place 
something less silly: 
“frimousse" means a cute 
face, and reminds you that the 
coinages of restaurateurs are 
second in whimsical crassness 
only to those of rock 'o' 

This is a place for when rain 
stops play. Service is sedate, 
fussy, protracted: you have to 
rescue your bottle of ordinary 
wine from the basket of a 
hovering waiter. 

Altogether too much effort 
seems lo go into the mise-en- 
scene and too little into the 
cooking. Tortellini with a 
decent mushroom and cream 
sauce were suspiciously like 
those obtainable dried from 
any Italian deli, a vegetable 
soup was made with adequate 
stock and a preponderance of 
carrots, a cold chicken breast 
in a thinned-out remoulade 
was surrounded by naked 
salad leaves, plaice fillets in

ers and recalls the age of 
E.R. Dexter and 

M.C. Cowdrey — I mean, it 
recalls “first generation" Lon-

Some of the cooking in- 
clines that way too — calves’ 
kidneys in a glutinous vinous 
sauce, overdone rack of lamb 
packed with dried rosemary, a 
coarse chocolate mousse, a 
cognac cream topped by a 
toffee crust as thick as a florin 
and about as edible. 

Even some of the more 
“modern" dishes are heavy 
handed: a duck breast with a 
raspberry and blueberry sauce 
was like something drowned 
in undiluted Ribena. 

But there are excellent dish- 
es to be bad: a delicious 
mushroom mousse in a subtle 
ginger sauce, a first-rate brick- 
red fish soup marred only by 
the sweaty shards of Grnydre 
that accompanied iL The wine 
list is the usual chauvinistic 
anthology of Bordeaux. Bur-

many vintages now.

en the Beaqjolais Noovean 
hoys to it once again. The Curst 
pur de Tannie to arrive here 
was KWV’s 1986 Cape Noo- 
vean Blanc, flown in from 
South Africa on April 5, 
nearly a month earlier than 
fast year. The *86 Cape 
Nonvean Blanc, with its al- 
most water-white colour, has 
that classic bouquet of hot 
country, cold-fermentation 

white wines: a fresh, almost 
barley sngar-Iike scent* 
backed zip by a light, fruity 
palate. It is a shade bitter and 
coarse on tire finish this year, 
and also has, for a white wine, 
a high alcohol level of 12 per 
cent. Yet, well-chilled, it still 
makes a refreshing June white 
wine. Threshers (£2.49).

game. Montana's vast winery 
on South Island, is the produc- 
er of Marlborough Nouveau. 
This early New Zealand *86 is 
made from the Mnller-Thnr- 
gan grape, picked in early 
April with the fermentation 
completed by the end of the 
month. The result is a testy 
white wine with a fine titrnssy 
nose, plus a fresh, fruity 
palate. The slight sweetness 
means that again it is best 
drank well-chilled. (This Noo- 
vean should be available In 
wine bars, but for retail 
stockists contact City Vintag- 
ers, 47 Midland Road, London 

The star tom of this year's 
southern hemisphere Nouveau 
show is. however, an Austra- 
lian wine — HOJ-Smith 
estate's *86 Old Triangle Vine- 
yard Rhine Riesling. Michael 
Hill-Smith, the sixth genera- 
tion to be involved in the 
family firm, told me this week 
that first-class southern hemi- 
sphere wines are generally the 
product of cooler years, and 
the '86 Australian vintage 
enjoyed one of (he coolest 
summers on record. The *86 
Old Triangle, with its pale 
straw colour and fresh, flowery 
Riesling nose, backed by a 
balanced, citrus- like palate, is 
priced at just £2.99 and avail- 
able in three weeks from Peter 
Dominic and Waitrose. Just 
because it's officially summer, 
there is no need to give up 
drinking red wines. The 
lighter, softer reds can make 
delicious summer drinking, 

Beaujolais is the obvious 
choice bat, with such gloomy 
weather, I feel that a slightly 
firmer red is the answer. Lay & 
Wheeler has an excellent own- 
label 1983 Claret from Pierre 
Cosfe that the firm's list 
claims is “immensely 
attractive". I much enjoyed its 
fall purple colour and rich, 
ripe taste. If we are lucky 
enough to have any hot days at 
all 10-minute in an ice bucket 
will bring this wine down to a 
refreshingly acceptable level 
(lay & Wheeler, 6 Culver 
Street West, Colchester, Es- 
sex £3.51). 

Salisbury's also stock a 
good light summer red, a non- 
vintage BuzeL priced at £2.49.

Had I wandered by . a .few 
centuries earlier, I should 
doubtless have been less sur-

duced in the 17th century 
from South America were 
esteemed primarily as flowery 
climbers. It was not until 1731 
and Philip Millet's great

Gilbert White, the 18th-century 
naturalist, created a charming and 
innovative garden at his home in 
Hampshire. Now it has been restored 
with bold and exciting results

twine. For growing in a border 
next to the house, you need 
only to bend the tip of a piece 
of strong fruit-wire into a 
hook, slip a loop of twine 
through and prod it about 
eight inches into the ground to 
make a firm anchor. The other 
end of the twine can be fixed 
as high as 10 or 12 feet into 
screw-eyes in a wall or fence. 

The excellent range includes

Gilbert White is famous as a 
naturalist. His Natural History of 
Selborne has been- published in 
more than 1 00 editions and has not 
been out of print since it was first 
printed in 1789. Less well known is 
the fact that he was a capable and in- 
novative gardener. 

At The Wakes, his home in 
Selborne, Hampshire, he kept a 
detailed journal which provides one 
of the best insights into garden 
practice of the period. His garden 
notes show how a man of moderate 
means could succeed in the difficult 
cultivation of hot-bed melons and 
cucumbers, and achieve on a small 
scale the ideas of the grand land- 
scape gardeners. 

Even more interesting, he gives 
an account of 43 years of garden 
vicissitudes 200 years ago. On June 
7. 1 786. his vines were in fine flower 
promising a good grape crop, but on 
the same date the following year 
there was “ice as thick as a crown 
piece". The potatoes were damaged 
and the nasturtiums and kidney 
beans killed. 

The garden has seen changes 
since then but several features 

introduced by Gilbert While sur- 
vi ve alongside the accretions of later 
periods. His ha-ha (perhaps the first 
built in a small English garden) still 
gives an uninterrupted vista over 
the lawn to green fields and the 
dramatic beechwood beyond. Only 
a small part of his long fruit wall 
remains but snake's head fritillaries. 
cowslips and wild tulips still grow in 
the old meadow area known as 
Baker’s Hill. 

Late nights were spent 
researching manuscripts 

In 1955 The Wakes house and 
garden became the Gilbert White 
Museum. The present gardner. Da- 
vid Standing, is a young man whose 
qualifications are in town planning 
but. irresistibly drawn towards gar- 
dening. he found his hobby becom- 
ing his job. During spells of weeding 
he began to wonder how the garden 
had looked in earlier days. 

His curiosity took him to Gilbert 
White's manuscripts and late nights 
were spent laboriously working out 
the geography of the old garden and 

what White had planted in its 
various parts. 

David Standing hatched a plan to 
reintroduce some of the species 
originally grown by the redoubtable 
naturalist-gardener the elegant 
pyramidal bell flowers, cocks- 
combs K’closia), fragrant “Painted 
Lady" sweet peas, and old roses. 

Unfortunately, the museum only 
had funds to employ him for two 
days a week, barely enough time for 
him to maintain the garden. Help 
arrived from an unexpected quarter 
— a group of Southampton extra- 
mural students who were carried 
away with the idea of restoration. 
They formed themselves into a 
band of volunteer workers who 
became known as the Wakes 

Over several years they have 
turned up on the first Sunday of the 
month during the growing season, 
and not only do the weeding but 
bring skills such as pruning, propa- 
gation and hedge-laying. They also 
bring plants. Under David's leader- 
ship they have restored and planted 

layed the herb garden. The resuh is 
bold and exciting. 

There are wild flowers such as 
meadow cranesbill and both the 
native hellebores (which Gilbert 
originally introduced from the 
woods and lakes around Selborne). 
There are joyous billows of colum- 
bine, lady’s mantle and a remark- 
able pale Geranium phaeum which 
has been allowed to self-seed 

choice and rather scarce plant, with 
exquisite dark flowers outlined in 
gold. The Wakes garden has them in 
plenty — all propagated, I was 
astonished to learn, from one single 


The thing to do, apparently, 
having situated your plant in good

There have also been daring

slashed and laid like a country 
hedge to make a richly dense hip-

“Duponlii" rose was fen-trained to 
form the brilliant centrepiece of a

Watching a bluetil going to its 
nest in one of the recently planted 
apricot trees on the old fruit wall, I 
felt that this Hampshire garden 
now, as in the past, has much to 
charm both the naturalist and the 
gardener. Perhaps a new Wakes 
garden journal should be started.

TheCharacter of Cricket 


Joseph. £12.1 

“No cricket guaranteed" 
reads the sign outside the 
. County Ground at Hove, it 
might have been written with 
our last weeping summer in 
•.-mind. But nothing deters Mr 
Heaid on his Odyssey. From 
.Tony HiU to Jesmond, the 
ram turn Wes down, the light 
gets steadily worse, and the 
sawdust is neatly piled (an 
obLauon to the Meteorological 
Office) behind the stumps. At 
least h never snows on the 
intrepid traveller. 

Other authors have taken 
■trains to Tibet (where cricket 
has certainly been played) and 
slow boats to who-knows- 
; where and given us their 
thoughts on the world that 
passes by. Mr Heald's purpose 
may seem less ambitious - an 
amble around the cricket 
grounds of England —but he 
brings back some rich pickings 
which will delight the cricket 
aficionado and the social hie , 
torian too. 

Mr Heaid says of Trent 
Bridge that “it is less ofa small 
boy’s ground these days, just 
as most of lift is less generous 
to small boys". I suspect he’s 
right on both counts, and 
sympathize with the lads ax 
Bristol who tried in vai 

■ :u 


- •• :>* 

■ j .-i.^ 

Me Heaid lays ■ no great 
claim to prowess with “hard 
ball and lethal bat", yet he 
knows his cricket and writes 
about it with wit and grace. He 
recognizes that cricket is an 
experience, not just a game, 
and that it does not have to be 
exciting to be enjoyable. What 
particularly interests him is 
“the idea of cricket” — the 
sense of place, the characters, 
the memories. 

As he moves from ground to 
ground, he stirs recollections 
of expeditions long ago. I 
remember seeing Pataudi 
hooking Hall off his eyebrows 
in The Parks. I went with my 
aunt, the Thermos, the 
Marmite sandwiches, and the 
, bananas to watch Wash brook 
swagger down the pavilion 
steps at Bristol to take strike 
against “Bomber** Wells. 

Mr Heaid is especially good 
at all those tastes, smells, and 
sights that the cricket lover 
immediately associates with 
the game. There are the feasts 
of cup-cakes, cucumber sand- 
wiches and sticky buns swflJed 
down with milky tea. There 
are the “blood and bandage" ; 
pavilions, some still bordered 
by sweet wjHiaro&and rambler 
roses. And there are; of course,-, 
the ubiquitous school-boys; 1 
bags bursting , with plastic 
raincoats, pencil sharpeners, 
Kit-Rats, and last year’s 

vam to get 

the autograph of the Austra- 
lian O’Donnell. “Peter 
thought he said ’monks off," 
one of them reports. •• 

The adult world teaches 
some stem lessons. At Horns 
Hill prep school, where there’s 
a tradition of cricket, classics, 
and no frills, Mr Heaid tells us 
that “they don’t like chaps to 
be big-headed". They remem- 
bered a boy called Lee who 
made 100 against old rivals 
West Down, and took six 
wickets including the hat- 
hick. In the bus on the way 
home he was inclined to be a 
little bumptious and noisy. 
The master in charge respond- 
ed in the prescribed H orris 
Hill fashion; “Shut up, Lee", 
he said, “1 don’t know what on 
earth you’ve got to be so 
pleased about.? 

Whether or not life has 
changed much for small boys, 
it has certainly changed for 
cricket. It may be possible to 
this day to find a. Dorset 
village where the perfect game 
is played on the green; howev- 
er — and there may be a 
message for us in this — I 
wouldn’t search the Ordnance 
Survey for too Jong in pursuit 
of Mr HealdVCamelot- The 
dominant message from the 
county grounds has a more 
depress! ngly down-to-earth 
ring. As the Assistant Secre- 
tary of Old Trafford argues, in 
the last 30 years or so the 
quality of cricket has declined 
.while the quality of life has 

I remain a little doubtful 
about the latter proposition, 
but the remark about cricket 
must be beyond argument 
The game; alas, reflects much 
that has happened in the rest 

of life, including the commer- 
cialism and the fashions such 
as Prince’s earring, This ob- 
ject much exercized the Essex 
members, and brought a stout 
Christian defence from that 
Chelmsford regular, Major the 
Reverend Philip Wright au- 
thor of Salute the Carthorse. 
Getting a man to shed his 
earring is no easy matter, but 
Pringle’s has disappeared this 
season and look what's hap, 
pened to his batting. 

Mr Heald's book is great fun 
and deserves' a place, just in 
case it rains, alongside the 
picnic in every cricket 
watcher’s squashy bag. I have 
one small criticism — a single 
smut on this otherwise deli- 
cious egg and tomato sand- 
wich. Once or twice, the 
author strains unconvincingly 
after a slinging contemporary 
observation. The difference in 
quality between prep school 
and ILEA cricket pitches has, I 
should reckon, less to do with 
social divisiveness (the Heaid 
version) than with work done 
by . the local authority 

Altogether, this is a jolly 
book - well illustrated by Paul 
Cox — which will give great 
pleasure to aunts, small boys, 
and gallant vicars, and may 
well, reprehensibly. take their 
minds for a mom em or two off 
the scoring.

Charles Higfuun has sab-titled his biogra- 
WOrwfl Welles (New English Library. 
£12.95), "the rise and fall of an American 
genius", which is not a bad sammarv. When 
every allowance is made — the brutality of 
JJ* .Haywood studio system ami so on — 
Welles was a chronic under-achiever. 

Almost everything he did after Citizen Kane 
was an ami-dimax, though genius kept 
breaking through. Charles Higham reckons 
that Welles carried the seeds of his own 
destruction, being temperamentally incom- 
patible with an industry which demanded 
personal _ discipline and tight budgets. 
Demolishing many Welles-promoted myths, 
Higham’s book is a useful interim report but 
it cannot be the final word.

of glorious derring-do, hack in

nearly 20 years. The stories 
are still spongy and over- 
written, but when Buchan 
trundles out bis massive iron-

starts churning (the death of 
P. Pienaar, Mary having at 

Medina with the red-hot pok- 
er), we are wrung as dry as 

Lawyers will lap np The 
Oxford Book of Legal Anec- 
dotes but for thfa lay man it 
was disappointing. Gilbert ad- 
mits the book is not a collec- 
tion of jokes, but it is not much 
a collection of anything else 
either, most of the anecdotes 
being of pub- bore standard. 
Still, there is one useful 

“If yon are ever stopped by 
the police don't touch the car 
in any nay, or you will be said 
to be leaning on it for support 
Don’t sway when you are 
walking, or you will be said to 
be staggering under the influ- 
ence of drink. Stand upright 
outside the car, and say, ‘1 am 
not guilty of whatever you are 
about to charge me with 
doing’." . 

Christina Walkley’s The 

Way to Wear ’Em uses car- 
toons from Punch over the 
past 250'years as sources for a 
most agreeable and amusing 
survey of fashion. Crinolines, 
for example, were a terrible 
fire hazard. 

Those who can find pleasure 
in the experiences of boastful 
19th-century Englishmen 
fearlessly tracking their way 
through India and Africa to 
blast away at anything Hut 
strayed into view will, I sup- 
pose, enjoy Tales of the Big 
Game Hunters. 

When one read about these 
things at the age of eight, the 
a nimals were not only vicious 
brutes terrorizing innocent vil- 
lagers, but also possessed an 
intellectual sharpness border- 
ing on GCSE standard. Conse- 
quently, the contest seemed 
morally justifiable, and we all 
cheered when the friendly 
chimpanzee dronned a lnrm» 

coconut on the killer hippo’s 

AH one can commend in 
Kemp’s book is its honest 
refusal of such easy polarities. 
Otherwise, it is a pretty sick- 
ening record of bloodshed. 

It was with some dread that 
I opened London Magazine 

A hasty revision of prejudice 
quickly ensued. There are 73 
poems, short stories, letters, 
essays, reviews, diaries and

the interview with Betjeman, 
Gavin Ewart on the crazy 
Harry Graham, Nadine 
Gordimer’s short story of 
crossed lovers, and 
DJ. Enright’s poem about 
why sarongs need a soagkok to

illustrated with photographs 
taken mostly by the authors. 
Strange, though, that the col- 
our photograph of Silbury 
Hill, Wiltshire, makes it ap- 
pear to be in a lake, and that 
the splendidly photogenic 
Broch of Mousa, one of the 
Shetland Islands, appears in a 
dull grey photo, more reminis- 
cent of the crumbling cooling 
tower, of a derelict power 

There are some mistakes: 
there are, for example, no 
“civilizations as much as 
12,000 years old". The oldest 
literate urban communities 
known to us were those in 
Egypt and Mesopotamia 5,000 
years ago. And, living and 
practising ■ in Wales, they 
should know that Prescelly 
was a solecism of the early 
English Ordnance Surveyors. 
It is from the Preseli hills that 
the bluestones of Stonehenge 
come and the rock is now 
called preselfte. That it should 
have been transported from 
Dyfed to Salisbury Plain 4,000 
years ago is indeed one of the 
ancient mysteries of Britain. 

The bibliography is wide- 
ranging but does not distin- 
guish between scholarly works 
and those of . unscholarly 
it includes, inter 
alia, Charles Thomas’s* Critic 
Britain, not yet published. Dr 
Richard Muir shares at least 
two tilings with the Bords: 
enthusiam for his subject and 
the ability to coveylhat enthu- 
siasm in clear and well-written 

prose. A trained, geographer, 
be is now a full-time writer on, 
and photographer of the land- 
scape, concentrating on histo- 
ry and conservation. 

The Stones of Britain is in 
three sections. The first deals 
with stone in the British 
landscape — the handrock 
landscapes like Dartmoor, 
Cumbria and theCuillin hills 
of Skye; the sandstone scenery 
of; for example, the Pennine 
MtD stone Grits; and the lime- 
stone Landscapes of the Cots- 
wolds, the Downs, and 
elsewhere Hie second section 
deals with prehistoric man’s 
use ofstone, from the first flint 
implements to megaliths and 
brochs. And the third, in some 
ways the most original and 
fascinating, concerns the quar- 
rying, transport, and use of 
stone in our buildings from 
the Norman Conquest to the 
present day. His treatment of 
lhak Ancient British inven- 
tion, the Stone Circle, is fair 
and 1 good, and be has the 
courage of his enthusiasms.

If Not Now, When? by Primo 
Levi is another big book about

I enjoyed Adventures of 
Wim by Luke Rhinehan but it 
is very American, and you 
need to have a taste for fa ntasy 
and absurdity. Margaret 
Atwood’s new book. The 
Handmaid's Tale, is set in a 
totalitarian state in the 21st 
century, when the few women 
left who can have babies are a 
key national resource. John le 
Carre's A Perfect Spy is a 
thriller in which not much 
happens. It is written with 
style and cleverness, of course, 
but I sometimes think that le 
Carre should stretch his un- 
doubted talents by trying 
something completely differ-

There is Fanny Davies, aged 70, 
playing Schumann's Piano Con- 
certo id 1928 as an extended 
scherzo, exquisitely nimble in its 
clarity of phrasing and cross- 
rhythms. There is the mercurial 
Ilona Eibenschutz, from 1903, 

bringing virtually no rubato at ail

there is Adelina de Lara at 79, in

All nine records are remarkable 
for an absence of what we too 
casually classify as “romantic" 
units. Flair here comes from a 
crisp coherence and vivacity of 
phrasing, coupled with a startling 
balance of velocity and depth of 
resonance in the fingers. It all 

makes so much of today's indul- 
gent rubato and extremes of 
tempo seem lite sentimental man-

Here is his Kreisleriana, in

he sets up a quite extraordinary

Birthday present to a 
most musical mind 

Robert Taub's recording of 
music by Babbitt, released to 
mark the composer’s 70lh 
birthday last month, is a 
treasure. It chans some special 
moments in the history of one 
of the most active, lucid and 
witty of musical minds, from 
ihe circumspect rrying-on of 
Schoenbcrgian clothes in the 
Th ree Compositions of 1 947-8 
to the exhilarating intelligence 
of the big recent works: Tab- 
leaux. Canonical Form and 
Lagniappe, of which the last 
was written for this recording 
as a kind of reverse birthday

One can quite see why 
Babbitt should have wished to 
honour his honouring pianist.

Babbitt and Carter are neat- 
ly backlit by the two records 
from France. Claude Helffer's 
skills are distinctly more gen- 
eralized than Robert Taub's, 
but they are suitably em- 
ployed in a grand set of etudes 
by Boucourechliev and in an 
intensively worked and fasci- 
nating piece of recent 
Xenakis, Mists. 

Meanwhile the useful Bou- 
lez-directed series from Erato 
.continues with a charmingly 

bold, relatively early piece by 

ty. He registers an immense 
of c 

the brilliant Battistini 

amount of detail as it flashes 
by, and he obviously enjoys 
the position of slightly de- 
tached observer, rather than 
originator, that Babbitt's mu- 
sic offers. 

I still find it hard to enjoy 
Reflections for piano and syn- 
thesized sounds, simply be- 
cause the latter sound so 
unpleasant beside Taub's clear 
colours. Also, Babbitt seems 
more successful when he is 
wholly mechanical, in his tape 
pieces or when, as in the other 
works here, he invites per- 
formers and audience to share 
in the joke and the irinmph of 
a humane mastery of 

The new Carter record of- 
fers many more difficulties. 
The flash of the Triple Duo, 
written for and played here by 
the Fires of London, remains 
for me wonderful but beyond 
reckoning after several experi- 
ences, while In sleep, in thun- 
der, setting six late poems by 
Robert Lowell for tenor and 
ensemble, is the hardest to 
admire of Carter's three 
interfacings with words. 

The problem is partly one of 
timing- even a singer of 
Martyn Hill’s lyrical immedi- 
acy must extend the words 
and give them an unwonted 
portentousness. But also the 
racing riot of musical inven- 
tion seems to have little need 
of Lowell. The poetry may 
even appear to be holding the 

York Holler for orchestra and 
tape and with darkly luminous 
studies by Femeyhough for 
strings and harp- 

The two new orchestral 
discs are both winners. John 
Buller's The Theatre of Memo- 
ry is a big Dame-esq ue jour- 
ney through the netherworlds 
of the orchestra, full of stimu- 
lating ideas, and Lutoslawski's

Steven Spielberg's The Color 
Purple made lhe wrong sort of 
history at the 1986 Oscars by 
gaining li nominations and 
winning nothing but there was 
almost a precedent- in 1949. 
The fancied films that year 
included Joan of Arc with 
Ingrid Bergman and, unusual- 
ly for the time, two from 
Britain: Laurence Olivier's 
Hamlet and the Powell and 
Pressburger extravaganza. 
The Red Shoes. 

But the most nominations 
went to an American tear- 
jerker that had so displeased 
the studio head. Jack Warner, 
when he saw the rushes that he 
fired the director, Jean 
Negulesco, and brought in 
someone else to finish the 
picture. It became Warner’s 
biggest box-office success of 
the year and when it was 
nominated for 12 Oscars, the 
shameless Jack Warner sent a 
telegram to the director he had 
sacked. "Well, kid" it read, 
“we did it again!". 

Warner’s reaction when 
Hamlet was voted best picture 
and his film came away not 
with a dozen Oscars but a 
paltry one is not recorded. But 
there was much pleasure in tbe 
film colony, ana among ordi- 
nary filmgoers, that the best 
actress award should go to 
Jane Wyman, the female lead 
in Johnny Belinda. 

Up to then, Wyman's Hol- 

lywood career had been 
patchy. She was known, if at 
all, as a wise-cracking comedi- 
enne who had got stuck in 
second features. She was the 
star's sister or best friend but 
rarely got to play the star. She 
needed a change of image and 
a plum pan in a big film. 

She tuned up with straight 
roles in The Lost Weekend 
and The Yearling and the 
second brought her an Oscar 
nomination. Though she was 
on the Warner payroll, both 
films were made while she was 
on loan to other studios. For 
Johnny Belinda Jack Warner 
decided it was time to back his 
own talent. 

Wyman plays a deaf-mute 
farm girt in Nova Scotia who 
is befriended by a young 
doctor ( Lew Ayres) who teach- 
es her sign language and tries 
to bring about a reconcilation 
with her estranged father. 
Then she is raped and gives 
birth and the kindly doctor, 
wrongly assumed to be the 
father, is drammed out of the 

The melodrama thickens as 
the real culprit is revealed, 
murder is committed and the 
girl stands in terror of her life. 
Through it all shines Wyman’s 
performance, genuinely sin- 
cere and moving and with an 
integrity that saves the film 
from bathos. Johnny Belinda 
may be a three-handkerchief 
job, but it is one of the besL 

So Wyman won an acting 
Oscar without uttering a word.

learn, she did have to tackle 
lip reading and sign language 
and to get the feeling of 
deafness, she played the pan 
with her ears plugged. 

If the public empathized 
with the screen character, it 
also had sympathy for the real 
Jane Wyman. Before starting 
the film she had lost a baby 
and by the time it was finished 
she was in the throes of a 
divorce. Maintaining a sense 
of humour in difficult times, 
her husband, Ronald Reagan, 
said: “I think I will name

Bat The Road to War is 
interesting not so much for its 
content as the circumstances 
in which it was- made. It was 
put together by two yotmg 
American film makers, Irving 
Alien and Herbert Bregstein, 
who were determined to alert 
their fellow countrymen to the 
menace of Hiller. 

The enterprise was the more 
courageoas as the prevailing 
mood in the United Slates was 
at best isolationist and at 
worst, in the activities of 
Charles Lindbergh and the 
Hearst press, strongly favour- 
ing the fascist line. Working in 
their spare time, and using 
newsreel footage excluded 
from the official documenta- 
ries, they built up a forceful 

The Road to War was 
premiered in New York in 
May 1938, earned critical 
praise but did no business, 
Cinemagoers preferred Snow 
White and Errol Flynn as 
Robin Hood. An angry and 
often moving film, it lay 
gathering dust until it was re- 
discovered last year. This is 
the first time it has been 
shown in Europe. 

It was made before the full 
horror of the concentration 
camps emerged to underline 
its message but Bregstein can 
still claim: "We were right on 
the button".

clue to the origin of that 
famous pile of stones on 
Salisbury Rain.

Modesty blazes 
a dramatic trail 

juSan Herbert 

ichard Eyre is musing 
over a toasted sand- 
wich in a Pimlico 
pub. “Most direct- 
ors", he says, “have a mid-life 
crisis. It's something to do 
with not being the prime 
creative force.” 

Eyre, aged 43. seems to be in 
the middle of his. He is 
rehearsing The Shawl, a David 
Mamet play, for the Royal 
Court's Theatre Upstairs. He 
is doing so in a Methodist 
church in the most featureless 
bit of Pimlico — where it 
shades desultorily into Vic- 
toria — a suitably anonymous 
setting for an identity crisis. 

“Everybody’s favourite di- 
rector - he's so hunky”, a 
somewhat over-bubbly theatre 
press officer had said. Certain- 
ly Eyre looks like the only man 
in the pub whom one would be 
likely to be interviewing — but 
“hunky'* doesn't quite capture 
the man's faintly nervous, 
hunted look. 

His problem is his recent 
record of spectacular success 
and somewhat ambiguous 
failure. Eyre, the son of a 
naval officer turned farmer, 
emerged from a Dorset back- 
ground and an education at 
Sherborne School and 
Peter ho use, Cambridge, to be- 
come a steadily successful 
director around the various 
provincial theatres. Subse- 
uently he ran BBC TV’s Play 

At Cambridge he had the 
rare privilege of being taught 
by Kingsley Amis, who star- 
tled him by demanding to 
know what he actually thought 
of Twelfth Night — did he like 
the jokes, was it any good? 
Eyre recalls this as the mo- 
ment when it crossed his mind 
that literature might be about 
pleasure and one's own. rather 
than somebody else's, 

With the onset of the ’80s 
his career leapt to a higher 
plane, beginning with his Roy- 
al Court Hamlet starring Jona- 
than Pryce. Guys and Dolls at 
the National folfowed. a mas- 
sive commercial success 
which carried on in one form 
or another for four years. 
Then there was the film of Jan 
McEwan's The Ploughman's 
Lunch, a huge critical and cult 

Eyre had become part of the 
gilded inner circle of British 
directors who are almost as 
sought-after as the actors they 
lead. But his cinematic success 


Richard Eyre has 
proved adept at 
directing the plays 
of David Mamet. 
They join forces 
again in a new 
production which 
opens on Monday 

went awkwardly wrong with 
the movies Loose Connections 
and Laughterhouse, both of 
which sank without trace. 

“It's difficult to explain 
exactly what was wrong with 
those projects. But it was 
something to do with dealing 
with subjects where 1 was less 
sure-footed. There is, of 
course, a huge difference be- 
tween directing theatre and 
films. With films you can 
change everything with light- 
ing or a camera angle; with 
plays the script is always at the 
centre — it’s a linear process 
moving on from the words, 
while the cinema is circular. 
But 1 do know that I can do 
films - the television films I 
have made I am very happy 

The last Eyre film for 
television was Alan Bennen’s 
The Insurance Man — based 
on the life of Kafka — and it re- 
mains his favourite. In Sep- 
tember he is to direct another 
aspect of Bennett’s fascination 
with Kafka, a play called 
Kafka’s Dick at the Royal 
Court. In addition he is work- 
ing on his own musical ver- 
sion of The Philadelphia Story 
which will open in Leicester 
prior, all being well, to a West 
End run. Meanwhile his Fu- 
turists is currently running at 
the National. There are, at the 
moment, no ventures back 
into feature films on the 

“I am being more cautious 
about what I do in future. I am 
sufficiently insecure to feel 
flattered when anybody offers 
me a feature film, but I'm not 
going to suppress my instincts 
in future. Doing things for lots 
of money is just not sufficient 

Eyre speaks with an odd, 
bemused modesty, seemingly 
faintly puzzled about exactly 
what he ought to be doing. On 

the one hand, theatre directors 
like Trevor Nunn have com- 
bined serious work in the 
subsidized theatre with huge 
commercial projects; on the 
other hand Eyre senses that 
such gigantically opposed 
roles are not for him. He 
admires Peter Brook for step- 
ping outside the British theat- 
rical equation and starting all 
over again with a unique 
formula. But again his reti- 
cence suggests it is not the 
right move for him. 

Vet there remains this sense 
that a director must, some- 
how, do more. And that, of 
course, is the lure of feature 
films, the one area where 
everybody seems agreed that 
the director is the central 
figure, the man in charge. 

T he Mamet play is a 
typically intense one- 
hour piece about a 
clairvoyant and the 
woman who consults him. It is 
running with Prairie du Chien. 
another Mamet play directed 
by Max StafFord-Clark. 

Last year Eyre directed yet 
another Mamet work, Ed- 
mond, at the Royal Court. The 
playwright appeals to Eyre’s 
own feeling that his directorial 
talents lie in the- contrast 
between hard, detailed realism 
and grand, explosive gestures. 
Meanwhile, theatre itself pro- 
vides a relief from the vast 
scale of the National, where he 
has been an associate director 
since 1981. 

"At the Royal Court every- 
thing is centred on the stage. 
When a performance is on. 
you can feel it in every part of 
the building. At the National 
or the Barbican you never 
have that sensation that the 
stage is the epicentre.” 

The unspoken background 
to the remark is the sense in 
which Eyre quite obviously 
feels most at home with the 
simple realities of theatre, 
rather than what he calls the 
"quasi-manageriai” aspects 
which many are obliged to 
take on these days. But know- 
ing that does nothing to solve 
the old mid-life crisis.. Only 
work puts that off for the

the Grade 

The historic fall of Lord 
Grade’s Associated Commu- 
nications Corporation is 
charted for the first time in a 
new book - if the lawyers ever 
allow it on to the bookstalls. p- 

Writers Dominic Prince 
and Quentin Falk are waiting 
with bated breath tc see 
whether their book. Lost of a 
Kind, makes it to publication 
day. "The lawyers aren’t going 
to like it one bit”, says Prinre ; 

The book charts the demise of 
Lew Grade and ACC’s 1982 
takeover by Robert Holmes a 
Court — effected, as the book 
will reveal, when Grade signed 
over his shares on a Concorde 
napkin in the back of a taxi 
from Heathrow. 

At the time, it was one of the 
most fiercely-contested board- . 
room takeovers in the City's * 

history* "There is one scry 
serious allegation against 
Holmes a Court and the 
lawyers are reading ft very 
carefully”, says Prince, a for- 
mer employee of ACC. 
Though the Australian entre- 
preneur agreed to be inter- 
viewed for the book, 
successive attempts by Prince 
to reach him fculed. The book 
is scheduled for publication in 
the autumn. 

Cash crop 

Crowth|F of Syon Lodge, the 
antique garden ornaments 
firm, have issued this chal- 
lenge to prospective vendors: 

“If you've got something to * 
sell we’ll give \ ou at least twice 9 
what Sotheby's say it will go 
for”. At Sotheby's garden 
furniture sale in Sussex last 
week, Crowther’s representa- 
tive picked up a pair of 
“composition” statues for 
£4,700 and are now unasham- 
edly offering them for sale at 
£20.000. “They are 19th-cen- 
tury and they are marble", 
says Crowther's John Hope 
Faulkner. “But then we've 
been going for 100 years and 
Sotheby's department has 
been going for just one. Draw 
your own conclusions as to 
who knows best" 

• Fancy the heady 
sensation of conducting your

The Royal Academy of Music

Karajans the chance to 
conduct the William Tell 8

A choice in the chaos of chance 

The mechanistic universe, 
which seemed to rob man of 
his free win, is dead. The 
atoms and subaiom ieparti cles 
from which everything is 
made are not like those minia- 
ture billiard balls that follow 
the predictable predetermined 
paths described by classical, 

The new physics confronts 
us with a different picture. 
Chance and uncertainty lie at 
the very heart of foe matter, 
according to Bohr’s quantum 
mechanics. The atom and its 
constituent particles axe for 
from being neat predictable 
entities at afl. Every electron, 
proton, atom, molecule, or 
group of molecules laces not 
one predetermined future but 
many alternative futures. 
Chance win determine which.

Memorial service 

Cotond J.P. Came, VC 
A memorial service for Colonel 
James Power Carne, VC, was 
held yesterday in Gloucester 
CatbedraL Canon AJL Dunstan 
officiated, assisted by the Rev 
SJ. Davies. Major-General CJ. 
Waters, Colonel of The 
Gloucestershire Regiment, read 
the lesson and General Sir 
Anthony Farrar-Hockley gave 
an address. 

The moment-to-come is 
haunted by an infinity of 
statistical ghosts; while some 
become actual as the present 
moment unfolds, others col- 
lapse (the “collapsing of foe 
wave function”, in the lan- 
guage of the new physics) only 
to be replaced by a new set of 

How does God relate to this 
uncertainty and what axe the 
implications for the doctrines 
of free will and 

The future is a creation of 
the mind; it has no reality 
other than as an infinite 
number of ghostly possibf ities. 
There is no means of knowing 
for certain exactly what will 
happen -tomorrow, which of 
the possibilities will became 
real or which will collapse 
unrealized into- oblivion. Per- 
haps even God does not know. 

But prophetic predictions 
and the many allusions in 
scripture to God's plan and 
purpose in history, suggest 
that the future is already 
mapped out, a landscape wait- 
ing to be discovered and 

This suspicion is strength- 
ened by belief m God's omni- 
science. Tomorrow must exist 
in some sense, it is argued, if it 
is already “there” to be 
known. On those grounds, 
many have been led to acqui- 
esce in the beguiling comforts 
of fatalism. 

The analogy with a book is 
often used. While we make 
Our way through life, page by 
page. God who is outside time 
can look ahead to future 

But the book has a modem 
offspring in the soap opera, 
less fixed in its forms. Authors 
of weekly episodes adjust foe 
details of plots and subplots as 
they unravel them. Some- 
times they even rewrite, de- 
pending on the availability of 
actors or with an eye to the 

For God, the future must be 
even more open. By giving 
man moral freedom he allows 
great flexibility in his plans 
and purposes and imposes 
limits to his power. One of 
those limits may be that he 
willingly restricts his omni- 
science and does not probe the 

History is not a book which 
he has written; it does not 
exist until it happens. It is 
enough for God to know that 
one way or another all will be 
well His presence in the 

process guarantees for us that 
it is wise to live hopefully. 

Time travel is an entertain- 
ing and absorbing fantasy 
(witness the popularity of the 
recent film. Back to the Fu- 
ture , or the exploits of Dr 
Who), but in reality only the 
present exists. Our time trav- 
elling must be with the rolling 

God goes before us, “pre- 
vents us", in all our doings. It 
is “He in whose wake foe year 
unfolds its days,” in the lovely 
phrase of Simone WeiL Only 
the present is real and the 
future a sweep of possibilities 
within iL 

A significant insight of foe 
new physics is foe inseparabil- 
ity of foe observer (foe experi- 
menter) and the event 
observed. The act of looking is 
a critical and determining 
factor in the experiment, in- 
fluencing what is seen. God is 
foe ultimate observer, the 
creative spiritual field in 
which we live and in which foe 
material universe functions. 
He creates every moment 
using the laws of nature. 

But the laws of nature at the 
level of fundamental particles 
have an openess about them, 
according to quantum theory. 
The elements of chance and 
uncertainty offer opportuni- 
ties for novelty just as free will 
does for human beings. 

Where there is chance there 
can be choice (in such a world 
there could even be room for 
effective prayer, not just foe 
prayer which transforms peo- 
ple but foe prayer which 
influences things). 

Karl Barth in his great 
commentary on Romans 

wrote that, “Before every mo- 
ment in time, God 
foreordains” He foreordains 
us because he knows us com- 
pletely. But there is a paradox, 
a “grim disturbance" underly- 
ing the whole epistle. It goes 
under the name of double 
predestination. We are all 
doomed that we might all be 
saved. We all share the hard- 
ened heart of Pharoah; we are 
ail led to freedom with Moses. 

God's foreordaining does 
not dictate the future in foe 
fixed format of a book. It is a 
divine pressure; a predestinat- 
ing moment lying within and 
behind every moment of un- 
folding time. 

Free will, then, is an essen- 
tial and centra] pan of foe 
GospeL There are many possi- 
ble routes forward within this 
unfolding present, containing 
both blessings and curses. 
Double predestination applies 
to each of us but it calls for a 
response. God deliberately 
limits his power to give us free 
choice. Which future will we 
choose? Which will we allow 
to collapse into oblivion? 

Christian teaching and 
quantum theory take some of 
the inevitability out of foe way 
thins will work out. There is 
no Third World War ticking 
away until its time has come; 
no unavoidable blood bath 
lies ahead of South Africa; 
tomorrow I need not be 
entirely foe person 1 am today. 
We will be judged by how 
seriously we take this

Versatile dramatic actor 
with a sense of humour 

Gifford Mollison. the actor 
whose instantly communica- 
ble sense of humour seldom 
faltered across more than 60 
years in the theatre, has died 
jn Cyprus where he was 
convalescing after a recent 
illness. He was 89. 

Tall, vastly engaging, and 
with a supple technique, vocal 
and physical, he spent much 
of his middle period in 

But early during his career 
he had proved to be ready for 
both incisive comedy and. as 
“one of the best young actors 
on the English stage,” accord- 
ing to James Agate, for chal- 
lenging straight work in 
R.L’.R.. The Forest, and The 

Gifford Mollison was born 
in London in 1897. Educated 
in Scotland and at Thanet 
College, he had very little to 
establish himself before foe 
First World War. 

On being invalided out of 
the Army after being gassed 
and temporarily blinded, he 
acted in Arnold Bennett's 
Judith . toured with Gertrude 
Elliott, and had a first sus- 
tained chance for comedy in 
Ian Hay's A Safety Match 
(Strand. 1921). 

Basil Dean was then the 
most regarded London direc- 
tor between 1922 and 1925 
Mollison would play a doren 
pans for him. 

He began his Dean years by 
doubling as footman and a 
young solicitor in 
Galsworthy's Loyalties {Si 
Martin's. 1922) and went on 
the following year to the 
fantastic melodrama, or 
“robot" play, R.U.R., where 
he fortified the excitement of 
its thind act. 

He was also in Dean's two 
Drury Lane productions of 
1924: London Life and A 
Midsummer Night's Dream . 
in which be played the quiver- 
ing Flute. 

In Lhe summer of 1925 he 
had a remarkable death scene 
as a cockney in Patrick 
Hasling’s drama of the West 
Coast of Africa, The River (St 
James's; directed by Leslie 

Mollison 's principajparts in 
musicals were in The Girl 

Mollison in 1934 

Friend t Palace, 1927), and the 
625 Coliseum performances of 
0 ’hire Horse Inn (1931). 

Here, the humour provided 
for him might have been 
considerably more diverting, 
bui he scored a striking suc- 
cess as the mailer Leopold, 
and his song, “I go to fight the 
foreign foe", sung in a vein of 
patriotic burlesque, roused au- 
diences to considerable 
enthusiasm . 

He was again at the Colise- 
um in 1935 in Twenty to One, 
and this was followed by the 
enduring Balalaika (Adelphi, 

Mollison joined the Army 
again in 1940 and served on 
the sia(T. 

After the war his parts were 
less notable; but among them 
was Carabosse in The Love of 
Four Colonels, when he took 
over Peter Lisiinov's part in 
the later stages of its long run 
at Wyndham’s in 1953. 

He loured Australia as 
Hysterium in A Funny Thing 
Happened on the »'nv to the 
Forum ( 1 964); and at home, in 
Exeter and Cardiff (1974), he 
reached Chekhov for the first 
time as Dr Dorn in The 

Mollison was made an MBE 
in 1984 for his work with the 
Royal Genera] Theatrical 

He was married twice, first, 
to Muriel Pope, and, second, 
to Avril Wheatley. 


John Bevan. the former 
Welsh Rugby Union interna- 
tional and for three years 
coach to the national team, 
died yesterday of cancer at his 
home in Port Talbot He was 

John David Bevan was born 
in Neath where he played his 
early dub rugby. He came to 

g rominence while studying at 
t Luke’s College, Exeter. 
When he was appointed to 
the teaching staff of Dyflryn 
Comprehensive School in 
Port Talbot, he joined 
Aberavon and struck up a 
profitable partnership at half 
back with Clive Shell. 

He played at stand off half 
for the Barbarians and Wales 
B before making four interna- 
tional appearances for Wales 
in 1975, a total which might 
have been more but for the 
fact that his career ran concur- 
rently with that of the talentd) 
Phil Bennett of Llanelli. 

Both players represented 
the Briush Lions in New 
Zealand in 1977, Bennett as 

A great rugby thinker, Bev- 
an coached his dub when his 
own playing career ended, and 
he became a selector and 
national coach in July. 1982. 

An advocate of running 
rugby, his teams were not 

always able to live up to his 
hopes but he was reappointed 
last year, only to resign four 
months later because of the 
illness from which he died. 

He was also a capable 
cricketer and represented his 
country in internationals, and 
his all-round knowledge of 
sport was recognized by the 
soubriquet of “Brain", given 
him on tour. 

He had recently moved to a 
new post as lecturer in physi- 
cal education at Afan College, 
Port TalboL 

He leaves a widow, Judith, 
and two children. 


Mr Patrick Shea, CB, 
FRSA, Permanent Secretary 
at the Ministry of Education 
for Northern Ireland from 
1969 to 1973, died on May 31, 
aged 77. 

Educated at the old Abbey 
School Newry, he grew up 
fluent in Gaelic and English, 
but literate only in English. He 
competed, successfully, for an 
appointment to the Northern 
Ireland Civil Service in 1926 
and remained as a civil ser- 
vant until he retired on pen- 
sion in 1973. 

Shea’s career was remark- 
able in at least one respect: 
despite the fact that he was a 
Roman Catholic, he rose to 
become, first. Assistant Secre- 
tary at the Ministry of Finance 
in 1963, and then, in 1969. 
Permament Secretary at the 
Ministry of Education. 

Only one Catholic predeces- 
sor, Bonaparte Wyse, had ever 
risen to the rank of 

permament secretary in the 
Northern Ireland Civil 

In 1973 the Government 
decided lo spend £15 million 
on a direct labour organiza- 
tion - Enterprise Ulster - and 
Shea served as its chairman 
until 1979. 

Appointed an honorary 
member of the Royal Society 
of Ulster Architects in 1971, 
he was made an FRSA in 

He had published one play. 
Waiting Night , in 1 957, which 
was produced at the Abbey 
Theatre, Dublin. 

His autobiography. Voices 
and the Sound of Drums, was 
published in 1981. It does not 
quite explain bow he managed 
to gel promotion; but, a fine, 
hard working civil servant, be

Kaufman sets 
out law and 
order strategy 

By Richard Evans, Political Correspondent 

Mr Gerald Kaufman yester- 
day accused the Government 
of creating a climate in which 
crime nourished as he out- 
lined Labour's new law and 
order strategy for the next 
general election. 

In a 6.000-word policy 
speech, the shadow Home 
Secreton set out how a future 
Labour administration would 
create a new partnership of 
people, police and govern- 
ment to tackle spiralling law- 
lessness in Britain. 

As foreshadowed in The 
Times in April. Mr Kaufman 
especially emphasized the 
need for crime prevention, 
particularly in inner cities. 
One of the highest of all 
priorities of a Labour govern- 
ment would be to lake action 
to prevent crimes and to seek 
to dispel the climate of crime 
which “hovers over our 
coumrv**. he said. 

He also insisted there had to 
be greater police accountabil- 
ity and training for Lhe police, 
wiile ensuring that operation- 
al responsibility for police 
remained with the police. 

Mr Kaufman, who was 

addressing a crime prevention 
seminar in Hull, set out his 
partv's stand after claiming 
that’ the Government's law 
and order policy had collapsed 
with the result that Britain had 
become a more dangerous and 
violent country. 

Since Mrs Margaret Thatch- 
er had been in power total 
crime had increased by 41 per 
cent, with violent crime up 42 
per cent, burglaries up by 52 
per cent and vandalism up by 
73 per cent. At the same time 
clear-up rates for all crimes 
had fallen. 

Mr Kaufman, who has con- 
sulted police and taken into, 
account their views, then set 
out what he admitted was a 
“massive agenda" to beat 

He unveiled detailed plans 
to promote crime prevention, 
including a safe estates pro- 
gramme. tackle drug and alco- 
hol abuse, and teach children 
to trust the police. He also 
signalled a new onslaught 
against fraud and presented 
plans to prerent racial attacks 
and help victims of fraud.

warned not to have any chil- 
dren for the next three years 
while the effect of radiation on 
their health was monitored. 

Mr Dimitry Valentin, a 
driver, spoke openly of the 
fears of many Kiev citizens 
and their concent that they 
had been left living a normal 
life for over a week until 
suddenly warned by the au- 
thorities on May 5 that a wide 
range of health precautions 
were required, including not 
letting the children play for 
long outdoors. 

Mr Valentin, who insisted 
that bis youngest son leave the 
city again after he returned 
sick from the pioneer camp to 
which he had been evacuated, 
pointed to the sand-fringed 
Dnieper river which flows 
down from the direction of the 
disaster zone. 

"Far fewer people are now 

prepared to swim in it but 
where else can they go? We 
who live here are aware that 
this is something we may have 
to cope with for the rest of onr 
lives. Whatever they (the local 
Communist Party leaders) 
might say. the best thing is to 
getaway from here. I wish that 
I was in Moscow." 

From dawn until dusk, the 
broad avenues and leafy pave- 
ments of the city are awash 
with uncomfortable streams of 
water sprayed around the 
clock by a fleet or water 
carriers employed by the Gov- 
ernment to try .to minimize the 
dangers of radioactive dust, 
often referred to by local 
residents as “the enemy". 

Although little is explained 
publicly to avoid panic, I 
discovered that many public 
and private buddings in the 
elegant and historic dty are 

washed np hi three times every 

A workman in grey overalls 
busy hosing the walls of the 
municipal library explained: 
"The idea is to reduce the 
chance of the dust floating 
about and causing problems." 

Few detailed figures on 
radiation were available, but 
the official line was to empha- 
size that all dangers from it in

It should be now be safe to plant 
tender bedding plants such as 
petunias, begonias, . zinnias, 
tagetes. lobelias, pelargoniums 
(geraniums) and fuchsias. 

Hanging baskets or "half 
baskets” which may be hung on 
walls or fences may be filled and 
put into' place now. Unless they 
are the solid plastic variety, but 
the wire type, they should be 
lined with sphagnum moss or 
thin plastic with some holes 
puncmered at the base. Place a 
small saucer in the bottom to 
form a reservoir of water. 
Lobelia, fuchsias, ivy leaved 
geraniums all make a good show- 
in these baskets. 

Trim back aubrietas and Alvs- 
sum saxatile, also other spring 
flowering herbaceous or rock 
plants after flowering. 

Wisterias are in full bloom in 
the South and malting new 
shoots rapidly. When those have 
made four leaves nip out the 
growing tip. Check that they and 
new growths of other climbers 
are not pushing up under tiles or 
wrapping themselves round 
down pipes or gutters. 

One of the most rewarding 
flowering pot plant for the home 
is Primula ooconica. There are 
now splendid mixtures of col- 
ours available, blue, pink, red, 
crimson ami white. The plants 
flower during many weeks in 
winter and spring, and while not 
hardy are able to withstand 
quite low temperatures in a 
greenhouse or home. Seed may 
be sown now. 

There is still time to sow an 
early variety of pea such as 
‘Hurst Beagle', ‘Winfrida' or 
‘Feltham First'. Also dwarf 
French beans may be sown now 
to give a late crop. RH

increase in profits 

JJy Alison JEadie 

Woolworth Holdings yes- 
terday fired off. a further 
defensive salvo aimed at frus- ■ 
trating Dixons Group's £1.5 
billion takeover bid. Mr Geoff 
Mulcahy. chief executive of 
Woolworth, forecast pretax 
profits in the year to next 
January 31 of .at least £105.5 
million; a rise of 30 per cent. 

• There wHlbe ho exceptional 

or. extraordinary costs, and: 
property profits of £3.5 mil- 
lion compared with just under 
£3, million last year are conskK 
ered “not significant”. - - 
The -Woolworth stores are 
expected to contribute pre- 
rental profits of £73 million 
against £60 million, reflecting ’ 
the initial benefits from the 
new -focus” strategy of con- 
centrating bn six key mer- 
chandise groups. 

S&Q. the do-it-yourself 
supplier, is forecaslio increase 
profits to £46.8 million against 
£342 million, and Comet, the 
edge-of-town electrical retailer 
which Dixons has agreed to 
sell to Granada if - it wins, is 
expected to produce profits of 
£19 million compared with 
£13.7 million last time: 

Woolworth also attacked 
what it described as the earn- 
ings per share dilution myth, 
it said that on the basis of 

.Geoff Mulcahy (left) and Stanley Kahns: war of figures 

brokers’ forecasts of £93 mil- 
lion pretax profits for Dixons 
this year, .the present offer 
would resuK in a 15 per cent 
increase in Dixons* prospec- 
tive earnings per share. As- 
suming an offer price at 9D0p 
there would be no dilution, at 
£10 the dilution would be 7 
per cent, and at £11 13 per 
cent . - 

Dixons, whose chairman is 
Mr Stanley Kalms, attacked 
the - Woolworth forecast 
beZcause it contained “no 
information on sales, no infor- 
mation about profits made in 
the first- four months of the 
year” ami because it was 

“nonsense” to forecast so for 
ahead of the vital Christmas 
trading season. 

By Dixons* calculations 
Woohvorth’s earnings per 
share on a fuBy taxed, fully 
diluted basis would be 30.?p. 
indicating growth of 12.6 per 
cent. Dixons said such a 
growth rale did not justify a 
prospective multiple of more 
than 27. The group also 
disputes Wool worth’s figures 
on dilution. 

Woolworth again empha- 
sized that the focus strategy 
was beginning to pay off. Over 
the last two years, it claimed. 

the gross profit per square foot 
from the focus merchandise 
had increased by 40 per cent. 

Although the first new-Jook 
Weekend and General stores 
opened only last September, 
some are producing the target 
figures of £20 net profit per 
square foot in some product 

The profit forecast also 
included a property valuation 
which addded £70 million to 
the existing book value of 
£628 million. 

Woolworth shares rose 20p 
from their low of the dav on 
the forecast to dose at S40p. 
still down ISp on the day. 
Dixons shares fell 4p to 352p. 
putting the value of its offer 
for Woolworth at 688 p a 

Dixons has until next Fri- 
day to make the long-awaited 
increase in its bid. Office of 
Fair Trading clearance has not 
yet come through, but is 
expected early next week. 
Dixons has extended its bid 
until June 19 after receiving 
acceptances for 0.15 per cent 
of- Woolworth shares by 
yesterday’s second closing

The Hague (Reuter) — Brit- 
ain cannot hesitate indefinite- 
ly over when, it wfli . make 
sterling a full member of the 
European Monetary System, 
Sir Geoffrey Howe, the For- 
eign Secretary, said yesterday. 

Speaking at a diplomatic 
lunch here, he said the reasons 
for remaining outside the 
EMS may now be based as 
mudi on habit as anything 

“The position is hot wheth- 
er we are going to join but 
when we are going to join, "he 
said, restating the prevailing 
British policy.. 

Siebe raises APV 
offer to £218m 

By Teresa Poole 

Sir Geoffrey Howes “Britain 
cannot hesitate Indefinitely ” 

Then he added: “That is an 
answer we cannot go on giving 

Britain has long been under 
pressure in ■. the European 
Community to add sterling to 
the seven-year-old EMS ex- 
change rate mechanism. 

This sets limits for fluctua- 
tions between its currencies 
and protects member coun- 
tries from the effects of major 
foreign exchange movements 

Sir Geoffrey, who is. aftend- 
ingra foreign ministers’ meet- 
ing in The Netherlands over 
the weekend, repeated that 
sterling’s standing as a 
petrocurrency influenced by 
oil prices had kept (lout of the 
EMS in the past - 
. “Those , reasons have m- 
crearingly yielded to analysis, 
not least because of the 
changes which have taken 
place in the' price' of ml in 
recent times,” he said. 

“There are still - reasons 
which remain now (for staying 
out), perhaps based as much 
on the habit of not ‘betongidg 
as-on anything else.” 7

Siebe. the safety products 
and engineering company, 
yesterday launched an in- 
creased and final offer worth 
£218 million for APV Hold- 
ings and introduced a full cash 

The original aU-paper offer 
had already increased in value 
from £182 million to £200 
million due to a sharp rise in 
Siebe*s share price after it 
announced nearly doubled 
profhs for 1 985-86 a week ago. 

The bond of- APV, which 
designs . and . manufactures 
process plant equipment for 
the food and drinks industry, 
immediately rejected the re- 
vised offer, saying it material- 
ly undervalued the company’s 
prospects and was “Unaccept- 
able in every respect". 

Mr Robert Davenport of 
SG Warbuig, adviseisto APV, 
saft “We art very surprised at 
the tactics and we wonder why 
they have upped the offer now 
when they are completely in 
the dark about our profits and 
dividend forecast and the 
outlook for the company”. 

City expectations for APV*s 
current year profits have

He also dismissed questions

rose to 7.3 per cent in May, the 
highest rate since 7 A per cent

However, analysts say the rise 
came largely from an unusual 

430.000 gain in the civilian 

-That gain was tied to sea- 
sonal factors, such as students 
entering the labour force, and 
a -correction from the small

us too. much,” Mr Laden says. 


“We are still waiting for 
signs of strength,” according, 
to Mr Robert Ortner, chief 
economist at the US Com-

more and more becoming a

Mr.Ortner says the data on

indicates May industrial pro-

Third call 
for merger 

By Our City Staff 

Mr Hans Liesner, the man 
chosen to head the 
Government’s review of com- 
petition and mergers policy, is 
no stranger to the role. He was 
the chairman of two similar 
investigations in the late 
1970s; only to see many of the 
recommendations overtaken 
the change in Government 
In November, 1977, the 
year after becoming economic 
adviser at the Department of 
Trade and Industry, Mr 
Liesner was asked to produce 
a quick report on mergers 
policy, with reference to the 
concentration of ownership in 
British industiy. 

The resulting green paper 
concluded that merger policy 
should be shifted towards a 
more neutral position. 

Out of the recommenda- 
tions for further studies, a 
second green paper was born 
in 1979; looking at restrictive 
trade practices policy and 
particularly anti-competitive 
behaviour by single firms. Its 
main recommendations on 
tightening up legislation con- 
trolling agreements between 
firms were broadly taken up 
by the 1980 Competition Act 
So Mr Liesner, aged 57, 
approaches the latest review 
well-versed in the arguments. 

Former colleagues at the 
Treasury, where he was Un- 
der-Secretary in charge of 
medium-term economic poli- 
cy from 1970-76, describe him 
as a mart who believes in 
competitive forces and the 
need to allow the market to 
weak property. “He believes in 
the markets but he would be 
concerned about the implica- 
tions and about what happens 
when conglomerates domi- 
nate the market place,” said 
one. dubbing Mr Liesner a 

He has a reputation of an 
ideal chairman; fair-minded, 
willing to lake the long term 
view, and able to take on 
board wide-ranging perspec- 
tive. But the six person review 
will include representatives 
from No 10 Downing Street, 
the Treasury, the Ministry of 
Agriculture, and' represen lives 
from the DTI, and it is unclear 
how much direction Mr 
Liesner will be able to give the'

say that it is since then that

United States rigrarette busi- 
ness, Liggett aod Myers, in 
May 1984. 

“This has had a dispropor- 
tionate effect on their image” 
he said, “Since then they tare

bits of foe group seen as 
peripheral for good prices. But 
this has also highlighted how 
undervalued the group is. 1 
think foe City wants to know 
exactly what core businesses

Mr Victor MacColL of foe

said: “The shares have slipped 
from a premium rating to a 
below-average rating. The 
City is asking itself, is the 
meeting with the company

for them is perceived as 
likely?" The Cfty needs per-

Blitzed Britain stays 
on course for rate cut 

The dollar's behaviour this week has 
provided living proof, if such were 
needed, that all is not well in the 
international monetary system. 

Yesterday’s slide, on news of a rise 
in the United Slates jobless total and 
fiulher interpretation of comments by 
the Federal Reserve Board chairman, 
Paul Volcker, ended a week of ups and 
downs for the world’s major currency. 

The dollar’s volatility — this week it 
has been up to DM2.35 against the 
mark and down, at yesterday's close, 
to DMX22 — has been matched by the 
statements coming out of the United 

Mr Volcker has apparently said, 
within the past few days, that he is 
worried about a resurgence of infla- 
tion in America, but that he is not 
signalling any tightening of monetary 

He has also, within 24 hours, been 
quoted as saying that a US discount 
rate cut requires prior reductions in 
West Germany and Japan and then, 
conirarily. that such reductions are 
not iii fact needed to bring down rates 
in the US. 

Into this melee stepped James 
Baker, the US Treasury Secretary, 
waving the flag of exchange rate 
stability at the Internationa] Mone- 
tary Conference in Boston, but imply- 
ing that he would not mind if the 
dollar was to fall quite a lot more 
against the yen. 

And for good measure (illustrating 
that, to the markets, the word 
"former” means little), the former 
chairman of the President's Council of 
Economic Advisers, Mr Martin 
Feldstein. disturbed the dollar by 
saying that its current level was 
incompatible with the $150 billion- 
plus current account deficit. 

So much for the statements, what of 
the real world of the US economy? 
The civilian unemployment rate last 
month nose by 0J2 points to 7.3 per 
cent, suggesting a weaker picture for 
the economy than Wall Street econo- 
mists had anticipated. Now, un- 
employment figures in the US cannot 
be ignored; it is not so long since a dis- 
count rale cut was timed to follow a 
poor set of jobless figures. 

But Mr Volcker, when he has 
decided on which side of the fence to 
sit, is likely to need a little more 
evidence than this before deciding to 
lake any action on American rates. 
And a felling dollar provides the best 
possible excuse for delaying. 

The London money markets, mean- 
while, have beavered away towards 
lower base rates in the past few days, 
almost oblivious of events occurring 
around them. Adopting the sort of 
spirit which survived the blitz, in this 
case from confusing messages deliv- 
ered on the other side of the Atlantic, 

the vision of 9.5 per cent base rates 
has been a sustaining one. 

Yesterday, in spite of a rather mean- 
spirited signal for caution from the 
Bank of England, money market rates 
edged down again. Only a terrible set 
of money supply figures on Tuesday 
can prevent the base rate cut and one 
building society, the National & 
Provincial, is already talking of 
cutting its mortgage rate from 1 1 to 
10.25 per cent. Things seem — for the 
moment — to be a lot simpler over 

Mortgage challenge 

Citibank Savings, the British retail 
banking arm of Citicorp, pushed 
competition in the mortgage market a 
stage further yesterday by announcing 
a package of three new home loan 
products designed to give borrowers 
more choice in the type of loan they 
can take out. 

A "caps and collar” loan, to be 
called the Belgravia Mortgage, guar- 
antees that for the first five years of 
the loan the interest rate charged will 
not rise above 1 1 per cent, but it wall 
not fell below a minimum of 8.5 per 
cent. The mortgage is aimed at 
borrowers who believe that interest 
rates are likely to remain above 1 1 per 
cent in the coming years. 

A second type, called the 
Knightsbridge Mortgage, offers a fixed 
interest rate of 10.25 per cent for five 
years — longer than most other fixed 
interest rate offers currently available. 
At the end of the term the loan reverts 
to the rate charged on normal 
Citibank mortgages. Citibank’s cur- 
rent rate of interest charged on 
mortgages is 10.75 per cent. 

The third option is a loan linked to 
the London Interbank Offered Rate, 
the rate at which banks in the City 
lend each other money.Called the 
Kensington Mortgage, the loan is set 
at 1.25 per cent above the three- 
month London interbank offered rate, 
which is revised each month. Changes 
in the mortgage rate are therefore 
dictated by changes in the money 
markets rather than, as with most 
mortgages, at the lender's discretion. 

Hie mortgages are available on 
loans of more than £50,000 and are 
being marketed at present through 
two mortgage brokers, John Charcol 
and Chase de Vere. 

Citibank Savings plans to lend 
around £500 million in mortgages this 
year in the United Kingdom. Mr Eric 
Mahoney, head of the mortgage 
banking division, said: “Io an increas- 
ingly competitive UK mortgage mar- 
ket, it is essential to develop new 
products to grow new business, pro- 
tect market share and create new 
market niches.”

The accountancy bodies 
have been deliberating with 
the actuaries on this subjec 
for years. The actuarial csti 
mates of the regular annual 
contribution to a pension 
scheme can result in the 
scheme being overfunded or 

In the 1970s. many 
schemes were underfunded 
because of the bear market in

_ And now that the Chancel- 
lor requires pension fund 
surpluses to be reduced, 
many companies have decid- 

- ed on a contribution holiday. 

Most companies deal with 
the employers' contribution 
to the pension fund by mak- 
ing an annual payment, cal- 
culated by the actuaries, 
expressed as a percentage of 
employees' pensionable earn- 
ings. This gives a stable 
charge to the profit and loss 
account each year. 

ED39 will require any sur- 
plus in a pension scheme to 
be released to profits over the 
expected average length of 
service of its employees, 
thereby reducing the amount 
of the regular contribution 
charged In cash mow terms, 
the employer still benefits 
from having a contribution 
holiday, but the effect on the 
profit and loss account is 
spread over 10 to 12 years. 

By the time ED39 becomes 
a standard many companies 
will have reduced their sur- 
pluses by at least two years' 

There is a longer term need 
for this standard to even out 
the charge to profits. But how 
confusing for the user of the 
annual report and accounts to 
be faced with two years of 
inflated profits-

Spurs plan 
£4.9m sale 

Shares in Tottenham 
Hotspur. Britain’s only 
quoted football club, scored a 
rare rise yesterday when it 
confirmed plans to sell its 
Chcshum. Hertfordshire, 
training ground for £4.9 mil- 
lion. The land is being bought 
by housebuilders. 

But the club has no plans to 
use the cash to go into the 
transfer market for new play- 
ers. In spite of its dismal 
performance on the pitch last 
year, the money will be 
ploughed into expanding its 
other leisure activities. At the 
moment, it markets sports- 
wear for Hummed a Danish

cash injection will boost assets 
to about 120p a share. In the 
stock market yesterday, the 
shares, which have slipped 
way below their lOOp launch

City Merchant Developers, 
the recent £18 miltion man-

Guinness Peat Properties, has 
reversed into LD. & S. Rivlin 
Holdings, the former textile 
company, confirming its in- 
tention to buy a 30 per cent 
stake in a quoted company. 

Rivlin has bought three 
properties from CMD, in re- 
turn for which the property 
company has a 292 per cent 
stake in the textile company. 
The £1.6 million purchase of 
the properties has been met by 
issuing 228 million Rivlin 
shares at 70p per share. The

into a property company. It

Tuesday's money supply 

The property sector fea- 
tured strongly. Marler Es- 
tates, which now owns both 
Chelsea and Fulham football 
grounds, spurted I5p to 390p. 
There is talk that the group 
has already received a bid of 
500p a share from a mystery 
buyer which would capitalise 
the company at £25 million. 

There was talk also that 
Greycoat Properties, up 4p at 
252p, is about 10 bid for 
Property Holdings Investment 
Trust, Ip dearer at 136p. 
PH1T is due to announce full- 
year figures on Monday which 
might include news of an 
acquisition to help increase 
the company's gearing. 

Dealers are still annoyed 
about the way the Dee Corpo- 
ration bid for Associated Brit- 
ish Foods' Fine Fare 
supermarket chain was leaked. 
The Stock Exchange has 
launched an inquiry hoping to 
find the guilty party and that 
sent a shudder through Dee's 
share price, down I0pat228p. 
Profit-taking also lopped 8p 
from AB Foods at 324p. 

The big four high street 
banks remain out of favour 
after last month's massive 
rights issue from National 
Westminster, but there was 
evidence of a few cheap buyers 
yesterday after this week's 

Barclays Bank, the subject 
of profit downgradings from 
the brokers Rowe & Pitman. 
Scrimgeour Vickers and de 
Zoeie & Be van in recent days, 
improved 5p to 484p. Nat 
West rallied lOp to 745p after 
shareholders gave the go- 
ahead for the proposed cash- 

raising exercise while Lloyds 
Bank rallied Sp to 524p after 
its investors sanctioned the 
bid for Standard Chartered, 
2p higher at 809p. Midland 
Bank finished Sp dearer ai 

Still reflecting bid hopes, 
AE. the old Associated Engi- 
neering, advanced another 5p 
to I7?p. There is talk that it 
has already received an offer 
of 2Q0p a share, valuing the 
entire group at nearly £200 

Rowe & Pitman, the stockbro- 
ker, forecasts in its latest 
economic survey that sterling 
trill fall to Si .2 5 by this time 
next year and is urging clients 
to concentrate on the big dollar 
earners. The insurance 
broking sector is singled out 
for support with Sedgwick 
Group, op 3p at 353p, beading 
the list. Rowe & Pitman is-also 
keen on Cable and Wireless, 
4p higher at 662 p, which! can 
look forward to big dollar 
earnings from its interests in 
Hong Kong. 

Smiths Industries, un- 
changed at 284p. and GKN 
have been tipped as possible 
suitors. GKN rose Sp 10 353p 
ahead of several visits to the 
company next week by fund 
managers and analysts. 

But there was still no sign of 
Evered Holdings' expected 
placing of its 14.7 per cent 
stake in TI Group, IQp dearer 
at 526p. after news about 
rationalization at its machine 
tools division in Coventry.

The result of a recent court 
case over the pay of a Liver- 
pool canteen code, Julie Hay- 
ward, has caused one of the 
most serious setback^^ever 
suffered by the campaign for 
equal pay-fop/ ejqnal work. 
According to the Equal Op- 
portunities Commission, the 
case has. “driven- a cart and 
horses through the equal pay 
legislation”. - : 

The Tiqaal Pay' Act! came 
into foncein. December 1975. ■ 
It allowed someone to claim 
equal pay only if be or she was 
doing' the -sarife work as that 
done by a member of the other 
sex, or .broadly similar work. . 

The ~ EEC ' found that the" 
United Kingdom had not 
gone far enough in fulfilling its 
obligations of equal pay for 
men and women, and oh 
January J, 1984, the Act was 
amended to permit people to 
claim equal pay for work of 
equal value. : 

Employees of one sex could 
now claim the same pay as 
colleagues of the other sex 
doing different work, provid- 
ed that the two jobs were of - 
equal value in terms of the 
demands made upon the per- 
son doing them'. ■ ■ * - 

Julie ijaywaidran assistant” 
cook at CamptelT Laird Ship^ 
builders, brought the first case, 
under the “equal value,, 
amendment'’ to the Equal Pay - 
AcL She i claimed that as a - 
canteen cook she was em- 
ployed ori work of equal value 

Similar .training and 
same pay for all ■'!■ 

with a number of craftsmen — 
a painter, a thermal engineer 
and ?■ joiner. The craftsmen 
were all earning £1 17 a week,-' 
she earned £92 a week. 

Miss Hayward and the oth- 
er craftsmen had all under-” 
gonea similar training period 
and during their apprentice- 
ship they were paid the same 
basic rale of pay. 

Bui whenibeyal I_q ual i fied, 
the male apprentices were pu! " 
into a higher pay band_and ■_ 
remained on; higher pay than 
Miss ; Hayward. Cammed *■ 
Laird had argued dial. she was- 
employed as a “trainee” and , 
not as an “apprentice”! They ' 
said her work was not of equal 
value to that of the skilled 
shipyard workers. 

Thb case first- came before 

cut for women

Jnlie Hayward, right, at workm»e tight goes on to prove her case 

an industrial tribunal on April 
10, 1984: An independent 
expert found that ' Miss 
Hayward’s job was of equal 
-value and the tribunal recon- 
vened ini October . 1984 -to 

- consider the report. The tribu- 
nal came to the unanimous 
conclusion that she was ero- 

- ployed 00 work of equal value 
;-io that of the other craftsmen. 
!‘ The Equal /Opportunities 

Commission and ' her trade 
union who supported her case 
, were delighted at the outcome. 
The- commission, at the. time 
described it as “an important 
step; on the road to equal pay. 
between men arid women”. 

-■ But the euphoria.; was 
shortlived. A year after the 
successful claim. Miss Hay- 
ward was still waiting for the 
fruits of her victoiy.JShe had 
not received any increase in'. 

her pay ^ -. 

■■ She was forced to go back to 

- the tribunal to argue for her 

right to be paid the same basic 
and overtime pay as those of 
' the other-male employees to 
"whom! she . had*; been 
compared,; . - - 7 

Cammed Laird presented 
new arguments. The company 
sauTit did not have tp pay 
Miss Hayward the same basic 
wages and overtime because, 
taken as a whole* her terms, 
and' conditions were not less 
favourable than the .men. 
They argued that Miss Hay- 
ward had better sickness bene- 
fits, paid meal breaks and 
extra holiday. 

In their opinion /“pay-’ was 

an overall term which includ- 
ed basic earnings, overtime, 

' Holiday' entitlement’ and peri- 
ls sion rights, and that the law of 
~ the EEC supported this view, 
r- Miss Hayward’s counsel ar- 
gued that the Equal Pay Act 
allowed her to focus on any 
term of the employment, and 
claim that hers was less 
favourable than a correspond- 
ing term in a man's contract 
He said unfavourable terms . 
must - be - amended' in the 
applicant’s favour to bring: 
them into lineL He argued that 
the overall package was irrele- 
vant and tint EEC law on the 

Package deals are 
forlugh fliers’ . .' 

entirequestionwas unclear. 

The majority of the tribunal 
accepted the company's argu- 
ment and refused to. confirm . 
Miss Hayward's basic and 
overtime pay should be in- 
creased. She appealed against 1 
foe -decision to the Employ- 
ment Appeal " Tribunal, and 
the results of the. appeal were: 
feportefilhis week, 

The- appeal tribunal cort-, 
finned the decision. It said 
dial even though the work had -, 
been held to be of equal value; 
Cam m ell Laird did not have 
to pay Miss Hayward the same 
wages but could introduce 
evidence - that, overall, her 
terms and conditions were hot 
less favourable. '

sion said of the outcome: 
“This result has driven a can 
and horses through the equal 
pay legislation. We are con- 
cerned with the most funda- 
mental principle of ensuring 
that women should not be 
working for less than men. 

“The concept of employ- 
ment packages is for high fliers 
— the kind of work that most 
women do does not have 
much to do with such things as 
luncheon vouchers. How can 
you quantify better working 
conditions and value benefits 
such as sick leave? The em- 
loyee may never take sick 

Miss Hayward was too dis- 1 
traugbt to comment, but a 
contrasting viewpoint came | 
from the spokesman from 
Cammell Laird. 

. . :He said: “We are pleased 
that the decision has gone our I 
way, as it lends to suggest that 
we did have the right ap- 
proach to what we were 
proposing and how Julie Hay- 
ward is to be- paid in the 
future. ’

the written decision, and I am 
anxious to read it to analyse 
tiie points made, and to see 
what action wilt be taken by 
Miss Hayward.”- ■ 

. Leave to- appeal has’ been 
given! and although a final 
decision has not yet been 
made, the Equal Opportuni- 
ties Commission has intimat- 
ed that it will be taking the 
case to tiie Court of Appeal.

For many peoplfr the most important aspect of investment 
is income. If you need an income which will grow, unit trusts 
can be ideal. And the table on the right illustrates MSG'S 
successful record of providing an increasing Income over the 
years. ' > • ■ 

The MSG Planned Income Portfolio is based on five unit trusts; and 
provides ten mcomedistributionsspread over the year. At 4th June1986 
the estimated gross yield on the Portfolio was 5.35%, over 36% higher 
til an that of the F.T. Actuaries All-Share Index. Income is paid net of 
basic- rate incomB tax. 

The income from the four older trusts inthe Portfolio has risen nearly 
three times since the Extra Yield Tund was launched in 1973.. Past 
performance is no guarantee for the future, but the income from this 
Portfolio is expected to continue growing in fi/ture years. With a Bank or 
Building SocietyrieposiL however, the income can vary only in line with 
the general leveT of interest rates. 

In addition to generating income totalling £13.583, an investment of 
£10,000 in these unit trusts on 2nd January-1974 would have grown to 
£49,882 by 4th June 1986. In contrast a comparable Building Society 
deposit would still be worth only £10,000 and incomefrom rtwoufdhave 
totalled just £11,078 over the same period. 

However; you should remember thatthe price ofunitsandthe income 
from them can go down as well as up. This means that unit trusts are a 
long-term investment and not suitable for money you may need at short 

The five funds described here are all designed to produce above 
average and increasing income. 

DIVIDEND FUND aims for a yield about 50% higher. than that of the 
ET. Actuaries All-Share Index, from a wide range of ordinary shares. ' 
HIGH INCOME FUND and EXTRA YIELD FOND both aim for a yield 
about 60% higher than that of the F.T. Actuaries AH- 
Share Index, from portfolios of ordinary shares. 

CONVERSION INCOME FUND aims to provide a 
simila r return, but its portfol io of ordi nary shareshas a 
strong bias towards smaller companies..

Tbp Performing 
japan Trust Over Five Years 

Gartmore Japan Trust 

Consistent Performance It doesn't take an investment expert 
to tell you that Japan's post-war economic achievement has been 

Over the fast ten years their economy has grown by more 
than twice the rate or the other major industrial countries. 

The "Financial Times" recently listed Cartntore japan 
Trust as the best performing Japanese trust over five years, 
rising a massive 257 l V In other words every £ 1 ,000 invested on 
1st May 1981 had grown to £3,570 by 1st May 1986. Gartmore is 
the only management group to appear in both the five and one year 
performance leader tables with a rise of 7-Fin* in the past year. 

Far Eastern Experience Gartmore Is well known for its 
experience in Far East markets where ov er 15 years ago we were 
one of the first institutions to open a Hong Kong office. We now 
employ a team of specialist investment managers who concentrate 
on the PaciTic Basin and three of these specifically follow Japan, 
making extensive use of our Tokyo office. 

Investment Opportunity The halving of oil prices coupled with 
a strong Yen and cuts in the official discount rate ofl l : 0 n to 3 L /*u 
since January augur well for the Japanese domestic economy. 
Consequently the Tokyo Stock Market is poised fora strong rally 
this year and domestic stocks are now the order of the day. 

The long-term prospects for the Japanese economy' continue 
to be amongst the best in the world but in the wordsofthe "Financial 
Times" "the message for investors is pick your fund with care?

“safe" investments is looking pretty dull. 

An investment in TSB Income Unit Trust, 
on the other hand, holds out much brighter 

Not only can you look forward to getting a 
reasonable and growing return on your money, 
you can expect to see its real value grow as well.

Motorists in a snarl-up 
over accelerating costs 

About one- million moionsss 
insured with the Guardian 
Royal Exchange are in for a 
surprise when their policies 
next come up for renewal. In a 
“major review” of its motor 
premium structure, an- 
nounced yesterday, the com- 
pany is putting up its rates on 
smaller cars and cutting them 
for the bigger, more expensive 
models. . 

It is a revolutionary move 
that is bound to upset thou- 
sands of motorists who have 
kept to small “econonucaT’ 
family saloons, such as the 
Metro, Escort and Fiesta in 
order to keep motoring — and 
insurance — costs down. It is 
also-likdy to set the cat amoiqg 
the pigeons of ORE’S competi- 
tors in this, one of the toughest 
insurance markets. 

GRE last increased its mo- 
tor rates only six months ago 
by an average of 9 per cent 
overall, the latest in a long line 
of rises designed to cover 
soaring claims costs -and 
which affected ail motor insur- 
ers alike. 

Its. - latest move, - GRE 
spokesman Michael Auld is at 

pains to point OUt, IS DOt an 
overall rale increase bat an 
attempt lo redistribute the 
burden of premiums more 
equitably, so that they reflect 
more closely the claims expe- 
rience for different car 

Whatever the proclaimed 
rationale, it is cold comfort for 
many ordinary motorists who 
could now lace premium rises 
of IS or 19 per cent in the 
outer London suburbs of Or- 
pington, Surbiton, Enfield and 

Outside the capital, the.

premium increases for small * 
cars are less frightening, as the 
table shows — about 5 to 6 per 
cent depending on the area. 

. According to GRE. the mfr- 1" 
torists who come off worst mM 
overall as a result of these-.- 
changes are those with the . 
smaller cars in the East Anglia * 
region. Those who gain most Z 
from the review are drivers of/_ 
the larger, foster cars in Liver- 
pool and North Humberside. 

The rate reductions for cars ZZ 
such as the Rover 3500, the ■ 
Volvo 760 GLE, the Vaoxhafl 
Cavalier 1600 hatchback and. 
the larger Austin Montego..- 
range from about 5 percent in M 
the London area to 13 to 14 »> 
per cent elsewhere. With pre- 
mium levels on the Volvo, for 
example, at the £200 to £300 ^ 
level these percentage reduc- ■ ; 
lions translate into worth--. 
while cash savings. 

Mr Auld yesterday des*. Z 
scribed the changes as ^ir to ^ 
all**. It will mean some policy-' , 
holders have tower premiums ^; 
and others who have been — 
subsidized by the better risks^ 
win see an increase. 

And what of the effect of the- 
compands surprise strategy..., 
when policyholders get wise to ^ 
the changes and took ebe-*-- 
where for a better deal?

Careful way 
to clear up 
your crash 

■ It is not easy to keep cool when 
your care Involved in an accident yet 
the Information you collect at the 
scene and what you say to the other 
driver can make afl the difference 
to an insurance claim. A new leaflet 

from the British Insurance Brokers' 
Association contains a useful checklist 
with space to complete detaite of 
witnesses, insurance companies and 

the vehicles involved. Thera is aven 

space for a sketch of the acdderit to 
ease claims negotiations. The idea 
is that you keep the leaflet In the 
giovebax. presumably along with a 
pen and tape measure, so mat you are 
prepared for the worst ‘ 

Even If you do not intend to claim 
from your insurance company, the 
leaflet warns that it Is a condnion of 
your policy that you inform the 

company about the accident It also 

fife you in on what to expect If you are 
claiming for repairs to your car, 
and points out teat you coufel stffl toss 
some no-claims bonus even 
though the accident may not have 
been your fault, and that you may 
have to pay part of any cairn out of 
your own pocket (an excess). 

ff you are planning on taking your 
car abroad this summer another BIBA 
leaflet warns against retying on 
your UK policy lor equivalent cover 
overseas. Despite the abofition of ' 
insurance document inspections in 
many European countries you still - 
need to top up your poficy for foreign .* 
visits if you expect to have the 
same level of cover as in the UK. A 
ween card from your Insurer Is still 
therefore necessary. 

The leaflets. Motoring Abroad? 

We'll Insure Your Smooth Passage 
and One Stove We Hope You’B ■ - 
Never Need, are available from BIBA 
brokers or direct (send sae 9fn by 
4tn) from BIBA. BIBA House. 14 Bevis. 
Marks, London EC37NT. 

The Irish link 

■ Everybody's doing it - joining 
one of the groups which offer cash 
machine fadtttos to members. The 
most recent to sim on is Allied Irish 
Bank, which has joined up with two 
of Britain's biggest buBcflng societies, 
the Abbey National and 
Nationwide. Alfied Irish is now a 
member of Link, the hote-in-the- 
wafl cash dispensing network. By foe 
end of the year customers of one 
member of foe consortium, which 
Includes the Co-operative Bank 
and National Girobank, will be able to 
draw money from most machines 
in the network. A Link spokesman 



dett. n 

says: “Members expect to be 
shartog over 600macttnes tv toe rod 

of the year. ” 

You shotfd, however, watch the 
charges you might have to pay If you 
take money from a machine which 
belongs to a Link member other than 
your own bank or bufc&ng society. 
Each instttution wffi make up its own 
mindj on this issue when sharing 
starts. . 

Triple chance 

■ Interest rates may be faffing but 

a special offer for quick-off-the-mark 
investors in a new Triple Bonus 
Bond from University MetficaJ and . 
General aims to buck the trend. 

The bond invests 75 per cent Tn Legal 
& General's Managed Fund and 25 
per cent in the National & Provincial 
Bu&fing Society's 90-day account . 
A guarantee of a 14 per cent return 
from the bidding society element is 
Medfcarand GeneraTs contribution 
towards stable interest rates. This 
is achieved by topping up the bufkftig 
society's new 82S rate with £53.20 
-for every £U)00 invested. 

How wefl the combined Triple 
Bonus Bond returns wfll hold up 
against competing Investment 
returns then depends on the 
performance of L&G’s Managed 
Fund. The minimum investment into 
the new bond is £2,000. The 
current offer is Bmited to £3 mffifon and 
doses oh July 15. Applications can 
be reserved on 0272276954. 

The grass cut 

■ Plantations, shooting rights and 
leisure grass are just some of toe 
more unusual investments covered 
in toe latest ANed Dunbar Investment 
Guide, to case you were

book fife you in on what is 
available, the legal position and basic 
details of their workings. 

Despite the breadth and complexity 
of the subject, the book is written in a 
dear, comprehensible style. It 
gives advice and guidance on when to 
make an investment and how much 
is advisable for a balanced portfolio. It 
also indudes recommendations on 
what sort of investments are suitable 
lor long-term security, which are 
for short-term gains and how to 
achieve toe best out of them. The 

1986-87 edition of the AiBed Dunbar 
Investment Guide is published by 
Longman Professional and costs

In search of £5m 

■ The new season for business 
expanskin schemes is cranking its 
way along. We have come to 
expect these vehicles to ran out in two 
convoys; toe first comes in October 
halfway through the tax year, toe 
second in a desperate scramble to 
soak up spars money before the 
critical day in April. Avoiding the 
BES rush hour is toe latest rund from 
Charterhouse. The fund for tax 

year 1986-87, with toe charming 
acronym CHEF IV, is of toe unit 
trust style. In other words, it invests in 
a spread of companies with 
subscribers' money being divided into 
units which are a snare or the value 
of those investments. Charterhouse 
hopes to raise £5 million for this, Its 
fourth BES fund. 

The minimum rmfividuaJ 
subscription is £2,000. The maximum 
Is £40,000, at which point relief 
from income tax (aSowaWe at top 
rates, of course) ceases to apply. 

The dosing date is July 14, so 
prospective investors cannot 
expect to muB it over on their summer 
holidays. Detafls: Charterhouse, 6

The Government still has a 
monopoly oe fax-free savings 
for UK residents with Nation- 
al Savings (whatever hap- 
pened to the wonders of the 
open market?), bvt fin: tax 
exiles, .engineers .in Saadi 
Arabia -and the fike, the 
budding . societies offer an' 
alternative. In the wake of the 
Halifax and Oe Abbey Na- 
tional,, a posse of bonding 
societies has emerged, deter- 
mined to capture their share of 
the expatriate savings market 

Domestic investors need not 
stir themselves. It is a condi- 
tion of the accounts that 
depositors live abroad. One 
society has. a particularly 
clean-handed dosing proce- 
dure. The investor is provided 
with a form which he or she 
must use to notify the society 
of impending retain to toe UK. 
The expatriate accomxt is then 
dosed, and the deposit trans- 
ferred to an account where 
composite rate tax is levied. 

The Bradford & Bingtey, 
City of London, and Peck ham 
societies have all produced 

new accounts paying interest 
gross to the overseas resident. 
In Bradford & Biogley’s case, 
tiie extra jam is more than 2% 
per cent above its mam Real 
Gold account rate. The City of 
London account looks the best 
value at 10.8 per cent. The rub 
is, though, that the interest 
level 00 the accounts for the 
domestic investor are higher. 
For example, the City of 
London’s Capital City Gold 
Shares offer 1134 per cent, 
though the investor sees jnst 
&05 per cent after tax. 

. There is a parallel between 
the yields on these accounts 
and the trick which the Gov- 
ernment works for National 
Saving, whose returns are 
very dose to the net yield on 
bonding society accounts. The 
depositor sees no difference, 
and the Government gds-fhnd- 
ing for its debts on the cheap. 

Nevertheless, these ac- 
counts rep resort better value 
for the expatriate, and as such 
are to be welcomed.

again, featured amongst the leaders in 
the performance tables.

In the future, we consider Japan will continue to be 
a favourable area for investment Recent developments 
lead us to the conclusion that the huge potential of 
the domestic sector could be the m^jor influence on the 
Japanese stockmarket this year. 

The important arguments for this view include; 

• The dramatic fan in oD prices. Japan is heavOy depen- 
dant upon imported oil and, as such, stands to benefit 
considerably from the halving in prices seen this yean 

• The 30 + percentage rise in the value of the Yen against 
the Dollar. Since the Group of Five’ meeting last 
September the rise in the value of the Yen has enabled a 
significant reduction in interest rates. 

We believe this will benefit the economy and help 
encourage investment in the stockmarket 

• The Japanese Government intends to stimulate the 
economy through a variety of measures. Legislation on 
urban redevelopment and the bringing forward of many 
key construction projects should lead to stronger 
growth. The projected rise in real earnings should 
create a more buoyant consumer sector:

even after their recent drub- 
bing, European funds provide 
an excellent return over one 
year and three years. 

But have the European 
maricets peaked? For exam pJe, 
West German shares, princi- 
pally traded on the Frankfurt 
exchange, added 80 per cent 
last year. Can we expect that 
sort of performance from 
them again? 

To judge from the number 
of newly-launched European 
funds. Europe might at first 
dance seem to be a good bet 
for the long-term investor. In 
the last year the market has 
more than doubled from 32 to 
66 funds, with more, in the 
pipeline. Does this mean we 
are being given the choice of 
instruments with which to tap 
a fertile source of profit? 

Or is it that the fund managers 
are Ming over themselves' to 
cash in oo the latest fid? 

; Either the long-re™ pros- 
pects are good, or perhaps 
managers start these funds 
simply because everyone else 
has one, which would add up 
to the sort of financial strategy 
you might expect from lem- 
mings out bn a jog- . ‘ •" 

- - Bearing the alternative- in- 
terpretations in mind, we can 
.'report a marked degree -of 
enthusiasm for Europe among 
those who run the funds. - • 

* The most papular markets 
for general European funds are 
West Germany and Fiance; 
several foods have at least half 
their money in Paris and 
Frankfurt. “German shares 
have been hit hard by major 
withdrawals from foreign in- 
stitutional investors. The big 
American and British pension 
funds have pulled out of 
Germany after Chernobyl, 
mainly because the Green 
Party has gained substantial 
credibility and investors don't 
-like the look of its policies." 
says John Magnay df 

John Legal, of GT fund 
managers* would agree.. 

Mr Legal adds: “The lower 
oil price helped German equi- 
ties initially, and it*s certainly 
good in the medium and long 
run. But there was a reaction, 
particularly from chemical 
shares, when their figures 
showed a lot of depredating 
assets, ie^ oil reserves.” ... 

French equities too have 
been hit Why? “One of the 
principal reasons is the huge 
advance from the market over 
the last year and more,” says 
John Magnay. 

“The new government has 
embarked on a seriespf huge 
de-nationalizations. Credit 

Action at the Frankfort stock exchange —

stock to absorb.” 

First of aO,. one has to be 
very' clever to second-guess 

Arbuthnot’s fund is 57 per the notoriously volatile cur- 
cent committed to France and rency markets. Secondly, 

Lyonnais and Banque 
Nationale de Paris have al- 

ready been sold off, and this 
. week_we have industrial con- 
glomerate Saint Gobain being 

West Germany, which is fairly 
typical of the investment ex- 
posure of European unit 

Another contribution to the 
weakness of the European 
sector is the gentle improve- 
ment of the pound against 
both franc and marie during 
the past few weeks. 

An' investment in a West 
German share is also an 
investment in the strength of 
the mark against the pound. A 
poorly performing local cur- 
rency can erode the value of a 
stock market gain, in other 
words more francs can still 
mean fewer pounds if the 
foreign exchanges rate sterling 
higher. " 

there is The view that an 
investment tn foreign shares 
should be a currency invest- 
ment As -a conseqence. very 
few funds have bothered with 
currency strategies. The con- 
sensus among- managers js 
that both the-maxkets and the 

investors should wait until 
after tire elections in Saxony 
on June 16 before committing 
cash. The poll is looked on by 
many as an indicator of life

F ramlington European Fond aims for 
maximum capital growth through-invest- 
ment in shares quoted on the principal 
European stock markets. 

Europe is now one of the most popular areas 
for investment. But it is a diverse and complex 
market: for investment success strong links with 
the continent are highly desirable. Framlingtons 
are with Credit Commercial de France, enabling 
us to combine CCF s expertise and knowledge 
of the European market with our own eminently 
effective approach to long term capital growth.

smaller holdings in Sweden, Italy, Holland, . 
Spain and Belgium. There is currently a sub- 
stantial flow erf new money into the fund. As 
this is invested, the proportions will change. In 
particular, the proportion invested in Germany 
is likely to be increased. The fund has powers 
to invest in Britain but will not do so for 
the present 

Investors should regard all unit trust invest- 
. meat as long term. They, are reminded that the 
price of units and the income from them can go 
down as well as up. ". . . 

By 4th June the price of units had risen 
13.6 per cent to 56.8p, compared with 50Dp 
when the fund was launched on February 14. 
The estimated gross yield was 0-94 per cent. 

Our special style is to concentrate on smaller 
companies and try to identify those with really 
good growth prospects before the rest of the 
market recognises their promise, aiming for 
exceptional capital growth performance. 

The results of this have been good, especially 
overche long term.

General Fund (started 1978) was one of die 
two best performing unit trusts out of the 27

£1,000 into £3,639.

Many fall in the stag hunt 


The great British Telecom 
share issue introduced many a 
first-lime Stock Exchange 
punter to the delights of 
slagging — an opporomiiy to 
make a quick profit without 
tying up your cash for too 

You apply for shares adver- 
tised m a newspaper prospec- 
tus (no broker's commission), 
afftx your cheque, and a week 
or so later get all the shares 
you applied for. On the first 
day of dealing, you sell them 
at a profit ofperhaps 20p to 
40p eadr. 

In theory 
profitable game, 
be very different. 

Telecom and similar privati- 
zation offers. These are bait 
for the young, luring them into 
the safe zoo of the Stock 
Exchange and not ns killing 
fields. Such public issues are 
meant to broaden the base of 
private share ownership, so 
allocations favour the small 
investor. The reverse is true 
with other, new-issues. Those 
wanting the biffiest number of 
shares get the most. 

New issues come to the 
market by four methods: a 
placing, with almost all the 
shares on offer going to the 
investing institutions; an in- 
troduction, by which a broker 

is a 

makes a market in a private 
company’s existing dares: an 
offer for sale by tender, and an 
offer for sale at a fixed price. 
Only the last two methods arc 
of mterea to the private 
investor and. he can lose on 

In ' the tender issue, the 
investor fills in the price be 
wishes to pay on bis applica- 
tion form (the “striking 
price”). If this is too low, be 
gets no shares; if too high, he 
makes sure of the shares, but 
ai a price which might mean a 
discount on the first day's 
dealings and therefore an im- 
mediate loss. 

As an example, Blagden 
Industries was oversubscribed 
1.5 times at the striking price 
of 130p,yet feB to llSpontbe 
first day of dealings, a loss of 
I5p per share. 

In an offer for sate at a fixed 
price, an ajmficant asks for the 
number of shares required, 
but there is no guarantee that 
he or she wffl get any. In the 
Associated British Pints issue 
of February 1983, applications 
for up to 2500 shares went into 
a ballot to get just 100 shares. 

Neither does oversubscrip- 
tion ensure that the price of 
the share will show a premium 
'. when dealings start, or that the 
investorwill make a profit if it 

. You may use various strata- 
gems to get some shares: 

multiple applications all 
handed in over the counter of 
the receiving bank at the last 
minute with forms from other 
people; no sequential cheques; 
different names and hank 
accounts, preferably one out 
of town which takes longer to 

But you fece two hurdles, 
both usually spelt out on the 
application form. One is that 
“multiple or suspected multi- 
ple applications may be reject- 
ed in their entirety”. The other 
in smaller print states: “The 
right is reserved to present all 
cheques and bankers* drafts 
for payment on receipt by the 
receiving banks.” 

So if you write out hundreds 
of forms — and one WeUcomc 

stag claimed to have pul in 
1500— with cheques to match. 

Overdraft cost may 
wipe ont profit 

and are not recognized as a 
multiple applicant, you may 
well find that your overdraft 
costs wifi be so high that they 
will wipe out any profits you 
hoped to make. 

Borrowing from a bank 
ensures that you have the 
money for new issues, but is it 
profitable to do so? Take the 
example of the recent Tip Top 
Drugstores pic offer for sale at 
£1.60 a share. You hope that 

an application for 30,000 
shares will get perhaps 1 000. If 
the price goes up by 20p cm the 
first day’s dealing, that is a 
theoretical £200 profit 

But how does the slagging 
work out in practice? Fust, 
there is die arrangement fee to 
the bank. The fees vary con- 
siderably. A well-heeled inves- 
tor might pay one sum to 
cover a year’s slagging; anoth- 
er might pay a fee for every 
new issue slagged. The cheap- 
est ranged from £35-£45 for 
£48.000 for a well known 
customer, to the quote from 
one bank official of £480. The 
only basis for this change 
seemed to be that h amounted 
to 1 percent 

In addition to the fee, there 
is interest on the sum bor- 
rowed. As a stag and not an 
investor, you sell the shares 
immediately. Interest will be 
charged at 3 to 5 percent over 
the base rate, depending on 
your relationship with the 
bank, for around 10 to 14 
days, depending on how slow- 
ly the money goes out and how 
quickly yon can get it back in. 

In fact the allocations for 
the Tip Top issue were not so 
favourable as you had hoped. 
Excluding the 108.600 shares 
taken up by employees, the 
3,200.000 snares on offer were 
oversubscribed 66 times and 
allocated as follows: 

200 to 2^)00 shares applied for 
— 200 allocated (weighted 

3.000 to 20,000- 400 (weight- 
ed ballot) 

2SJ»0 to 45400 - 500 

50.000 to 9fU»0- 1,000 

100.000 to 200,000 - 2^00 

210.000 to 490,000 - 5,000 

500.000 and over— 10,000 

Only if you had applied for 
more than 25,000 shares was 
there any guarantee of getting 
any shares allocated. Offers 
had to be in by May 1, and 
cheques were returned on 
Friday, May 9. The amount of 
interest paid for borrowing 
£48,000 for 30,000 shares at a 
fee of £45 for 10 days means a 
loss varying between £7.35 at 
13‘/? per cent interest and 
£27.26 at 1 5 per cent. 

At higher charges or fees, 
with a longer term than 10 
days, with the lower premium 
of 20p on first day’s dealings 
instead of the premium of 43p 
(offered in the “grey” market 
by Cleveland Securities before 
dealings began), the lo& 
would be even greater. 

So if you are thinking of 
becoming a stag, beware. Re- 
gard new issues as a lottery, 
more interesting than a gam- 
ble, and subscribe Tor a small 
lot. This costs little, and if you 
are lucky in the ballot, you can 
always find some hard-up 
relation who will be thrilled at 
receiving the 100 or so shares 
which are a nuisance in your 
own portfolio.

Mercuryjapan Fund was launched in June, 1983 and over the 3 years since then 
it has outperformed all 528 authorised unit trusts with an increase in value of 195.8 per cent* 
The success of the Fund can be attributed to the skills and experience of 
Mercury Warburg Investment Management, which has been managing funds in Japan 
for many years and has an excellent record of successful fund management in this area. 

The pace of change in international investment management is accelerating 
and nowhere more so than in Japan. Mercury Warburg is determined to maintain its 
position as one of the premier international management organisations and opened an 
advisory office in Tokyo in June, 1985. Mercury’s Japanese, team are therefore now able 
to monitor stock market developments in Japan throughout the Japanese, as well as the 

British, business day. . 

Mercuryjapan Fund is a prime beneficiary of this approach. We believe that the 
Fund, which aims for capital growth, represents an outstanding opportunity for the 
individual investor to participate in the Tokyo stock market at the present time. 

The price of units, and the income from them, may however go down as well as up.

The sky-high cost of buying luxuries 


We*w never had it so expen- 
sive. The price of a sumptuous 
lifestyle - the car. the boat the 
custom-built wok — is 21 
record levels, unless you can 
pay tor it 3 II in cash. 

If you want 10 borrow 10 
buy the blest status s> mbol to 
roll off the Ferrari production 
lines, the banks arc virtually 
falling over themselves to 
pro' ide the cash. 

And small wonder it is. 
Interest rates, in what econo- 
mists call “real terms”, are at 
record levels. As far as bor- 
rowers are concerned, that 
means they have to pay more 
than six times the annual rate 
of in Haiion (currently around 
5 per cent) for the privilege of 
taking out a personal loan. 

1 he last time real borrowing 
rates were anything like as 
sky-high was back in the 1920s. 
when prices were actually 

Persona! loans differ from 
mortgages in that the bank has 
no security for its loan other 
than you. the borrower. Mort- 
gages are secured through a 
legal charge on property. If 
you default on repayments 
you can expect that sooner or 
later the bank or building 
society will move in. take 
possession and sell up to settle 
■•our debt. 

Short of the introduction of 
a sbver>. ihe personal loan has 
! no such security. Thai, say the 
hanks, is the justification for 
charging about 7 per cent 
more for for personal loans 
than for mortgages. 

But what of the talk of 
falling interest levels, and the 
calls from Family Money in 
the past few weeks to switch 
your building society invest- 
ments into fixed-rate longer- 
term instruments such as 
income bonds and gilts? 

It is all true, and all of it is 
advice you would be well 
advised io take. Interest rates 
have fallen. In the p3St few 
days the leading banks have 
all' lowered their charges by a 
few points, but the fact re- 
mains that their charges arc 
extremely steep. 

Banks like to lend for the 
luxury goods in life. The more 
affluent borrower tends to be a 
belter sort of risk, the sort of 
person more likely to be able 
to a Herd the interest at the 
killing 20 per cent or so that 
most of the main banks are 
charging. Take a look at our 
tabic. It includes the biggest 
participants in the field. 

Two of the big four high 
street banks set no limit on the 
amounts they are prepared to 
lend an individual they deem 
creditworthy. The standard 
rate is around the 19.7 percent 
level, though the interest cost 

tends to be higher the longer 
the loan. Lloyds, though, is an 
exception 10 this. The bank 
charges 1.5 per cent monthly 
in interest on the outstanding 
balance of its loan. 

Insurance bumps up the 
cost of the loan still further. 
The banks, bless their dear 
hearts, are concerned for the 
health and strength of their 
borrowers while those borrow- 
ers are in debt. 

The usual insurance pack- 
age covers income protection 
for the amount of the monthly 
repay mmem. plus life cover 
for the balance of the debt. 
National Westminster's loans 

automatically include life cov- 
er (hence the higher Annual 
Percentage Rate); other banks 
offer the option, and some 
otTcr more lenient insurance 
terms than others. 

You should look carefully at 
insurance. The life assurance 
is a good idea if you have 
dependants you would not 
want to saddle with the debt 
after your death, whereas the 
income protection might be 
useful in the shorter term. 

But we must stress the 
shorter term. The Yorkshire 
policy, for example, becomes 
operative after just 14 days’ 
sickness for unemployment). 

but it expires after 1 8 months, 
whereupon the borrower has 
to fend for himself or herself! 

Are we being overcharged? 
The building societies have 
been casting envious eyes on 
unsecured Tending for some 
time. When and if the Bill 
passing through Parliament 
becomes law, it is no secret 
that virtually all the major 
societies will move into the

though I’m not going to be 
drawn about exactly where 
we'd pul the mark.” he says. 

John Pry, of Abbey Nation- 
al. also believes there must be 
some room for a cut in the 
rates we are being charged on 
personal loans: “It's a racing 
certainty that increased com- 
petition will lead 10 lower 
interest charges in unsecured 

Certainly, consumers have 
seen mortgage prices move 
down from levels at which 
lenders fell very comforatble 
to what one building society 
manager described as “a 
break-even situation, because 
of the banks’ incursion into 
the maket-place”. We may 
expect something similar 
when the building societies are 
al lowed to offer personal 

Not everyone would agree, 
(hough. Bob Moffat, of Na- 
tionwide. thinks interest levels 
have found the pricing which 
is "competitive”. He says: 
"We want 10 get into personal 
lending precisely because it is 
profitable, and that's why 
we're keen to do it. Increased 
competition won't bring 
prices down.” 

Proof of the value of the 
loan will be, no doubt, in the 
lending. For the moment, we 
are left with precious little 
choice but to pay.

The new way to 
bridge that gap 

Anyone who Las moved boose 

will probably have marvelled 
at the efficacy of English 
common law. Unlike the Scot- 
tish svsiem. which generally 
works quite well, the tnconcln- 
si ven ess of common law (ac- 
cording to the Law of Property 
Act, 1925. contracts concern- 
ing land have to be committed 
to paper as opposed to the 
Scottish orally struck bargain) 
works beautifully to frustrate 
and confuse buyer and seller. 

Often the only way to make 
sure yon can obtain the prop- 
erty you want is to buy it 
before von sell your existing 
home, that means a bridging 
loan, and bridging loans do not 
come cheap. In feet, unless yon 
are well liked by your bank 
manager, they may not come 
at all. Many bankers are wary' 
of lending money for the 
purchase of one property while 
there is a mortgage outstand- 
ing on another, particularly u 
no purchaser has turned up for 
the first house (referred to in 
the trade as open bridging). 

Now you can lay hands on 
the finance to fill the gap 
between house mortgages- But 
it comes at a price. Home 
Bridging pk has just started 
out as a specialist finance 
company providing 

indindiuais and companies 
with short-term, fairly expen- 
sive, finance. “Home Bridging 
exists because of the banks’ 
failure to eater into the open 
bridging market,” says the 
company’s lawyer Donald 

Interest charges vary be- 
tween a nominal 3.5 and 4.5 
pre cent over base rates — 
roughly 3 per cent on average 
more than most mortgage 
rates. The minimum loan is 
£20,000 with a notional maxi- 
mum of £200,000, although 
the managing director Clive 
Burgess says bigger loans 
have been negotiated. Ar- 
rangement fees vary between a 

minimum of £1=0. 
for the maximum 

“We try to ensure that our 
borrowers dra* _ the least 
a mo unt possible.” says Mr 
Burgess. “That's not because 
we want to lend them as little 
as wc can. It's because we 
wouldn't ask people to borrow, 
and pay. more than they need 

He gi>es as an example a 

borrower requiring finance for 
a new house costing £112,000 
where the present home re- 
mains unsold. The borrower 
would have £75.000 left over 
from his old boose once it is 
sold and the mortgage paid off. 
Bat Bridging Finance will pay 
that mortgage debt ami take 
out its own charge on the old 
house as security for the 
brigjng loan on the new prop- 
erty. The borrower has a 
mortgage and savings which 
together total £48.000. so 
Bridging Finance will lend him 
the balance to buy the new 
property - £64.000 - and has 
adequate security in Che 
charge on the old house. 

When the old house is sold 
the borrower will get his 
£75,000 worth of equity' in the 
property. Jess the interest 
charges* accrued over that 
time. Interest is not levied 
monthly. “We wouldn’t ask 
anyone to take on two big 
debts out of income,” says Mr 

The company claims that 
banks will quite happily let 
would-be bridging borrowers 
take on more debt than they 
need- On that we make no 
comment. But it certainly 
seems that if you are looking 
for bridging finance, this is one 
of the places y on might ask for 
a quote.

Golden shake-up 

Government moves this week 
to clarify the tax treatment of 
“golden" handshakes'* means 
tax rebates for several thou- 
sand ex-emplovees who have 
received pav-ofts of more than 
£50-000 since April 1982. But 
because the law is now to be 
tightened up from June 4 it 
could have a far bigger impact 
on the “golden hellos” which 
are greeting top City analysis, 
dealers and brokers as they 

_ v d ;. 

reposition for October's Big 

Bang. For them the result wil 
be a bigger rake-off for the 
Inland Revenue. 

That is the guess of the tax 
lawyer Patrick Way. of 
Nabarro Nathanson. who 
points out that golden hellos — 
those up-market transfer fees 
— are in some circumstances 
treated in exactly the same 
way by the Revenue as the 
more familiar handshakes. 

In a nutshell, this week's 
announcement accepts that 
the legislation did noL in fact, 
say what it was meant to say. 
As 3 result, anyone with a 
golden handshake of more 
than £50.000 paid between 

April 6. 1982. and June 3 this 
year will have paid too much 
tax. These taxpayers arc in- 
vited to make their repay ment 
claims through their tax of- 
fices. The maximum rebate — 
on handshakes of£ 100.000 for 
top rate (60 per cent) taxpay- 
ers — is £7.500. The deadline 
for making a claim is six years 
from the handshake. 

Corrections to the legisla- 
tion. to match its wording to 
its intention, are to be made in 
the Finance Bill passing 
through Parliament and take 
effect from last Wednesday. It 
alt means that on a handshake 
— or hello — of. say. £125.000 
to someone with a taxable 
income of £40.000. the tax 
payable will now- be £64.885 
instead of £57.383 had it been 
paid before June 4. 

Mr Way said: "The whole 
episode may well have arisen 
out of the Government's wish 
to scrutinize the City more 
closely, coupled with its un- 
ease at the large inducements 
being made to key individuals 
prior to Big Bang

In ihe 1 8th century they used 
to hang chaps who fiddled 
with the money supply, in 
1767. for instance, a Bank of 
England employee was execut- 
ed at Tyburn for ffiiag the 
edges of guinea coins that 
passed through his h ands. 

Perhaps the Chancellor of 
the Exchequer, Nigel Lawson, 
could get a few useful ideas, 
from the Money exhibition 
currently being staged at the 
-British Museum.- The exhibi- 
tion, entitled “From Cowrie 
Shells to Credit Cards", is 
sponsored by the Nationwide 
Building Society and covers 
the whole history of money 
from early crude forms of 
barter ana exchange right up 
to present-day technology 
when your credit balance can 
be summoned up in an instant 
on a computer terminal (not 
just now, thank you). 

Money as a subject can be 
rather dry, but this exhibition, 
which runs till the end of 
October, covering the summer 
holidays, illustrates enough of 
its more bizarre aspects to 
entertain the most laid-back 
teeny-bopper museumgaer.v 
And it’s free. 

For instance, there is a nice ' 
section.on forgery and mal- 
practice,' featuring tire afore- 
said unfortunate from the 
Bank of England and demon- 
strating that the unholy art 
may be as old as the hills and 
that early practitioners were 
just as sophisticated as. the 
forgers of today, or even mine 

. how governments minted 
coins and notes, often of very 
poor quality, to finance their 
wars , although until 1914 
British' civil servants were 
smart enough to be paid their 
salaries in gold sovereigns. 

Methods of payment range 
from the weird to the beauti- 1 
fuL There is the "stone 
money", measuring 20m 
across, used by natives of the 
Pacific -island of Yap. In 
Liberia they used lore iron 
rods. Perhaps the most spec- 
tacular example is the "feather 
money” from Santa Cruz, a 
30ft coil of vegetable fibre coil 



■■ .■■vac- 


! MfS'ap/BfU'StNQ/crv 


The modem example of the 
pre-derimilization halfcrown, 
coin cannibalized into a 5 Op 
coin by clipping of the edges 
looks quite barbarian by the 
high standards of counterfeit- 
ing set by the Ancient Greeks 
and Romans. ■ 

One of the more interesting 
aspects of the history of 
money was that actual coinage 
emerged less as a method of 
barter, a medium for exchange 
of goods, than as a method of 
extracting taxes, fines and 
rents from subject popula- 
tions. Nothing, as they say, 
has changed. 

One of the most fascinating 
parts of the exhibition shows 

still used, apparently to settle 
some /sofia] obligations: 

Money is intimately assori- J 
ated ' with life’s •: great 
inevitables of birth, death and 
marriage. One of the most 
spectacular exhibits is a 19th- 
, century bridal head-dress in 
the form of a money hat worn 
: by village brides in southern 
Palestine on the day of their 
weddings. It is composed of 
layers of coins sewn together j 
. as a form of bridal dowry. 

. The old custom of puttfr 
Jmottey in the mouth . of a i 
-•corpse to 'ensure asafepassaj 
. to the afterlife is well knowu 
srve habit of burying people's 
money with them — until, that 
was, the advent of Confucius, 
who wisely took the viewthat 
this was really a bit silly and 
suggested that imitation mon- 
ey should be substituted. 
--Early savers used the most 
impressive mini-strong boxes i 
in which to keep then 1 loot, 
great wooden containers with 
more locks than Fort Knox. 
Pottery money, vessels from 
the early 16th century had no 
« provision for withdrawals. 

Modern money loojkspretty 
unaesthetic by . comparison 
with what was spent afew 
centuries ago. But at least we 
have been spared, the awful 
experimental plastic coins 
pioneered by TCI In the 1960s 
as a possible, basis for a new 
coinage. They simply looked 
like the kind of things my 
children play Ludo with.

Wth these Income Tax savings, the 
Charterhouse Business E>pansion Fund is an 
extremely cost effective and potentially 
rewaning investment made even more so by 
the likely addition of Capital Gains la* savings. 

More experience 
Charterhouse has been successfully 
investing in unquoted British companies for over 

50 years They search out those companies 
that have more mature management and 
greater growth potential than most orcknary 
unquoted companies. They then back them, rot 
onfyv^rTK>ney btt<dsovMthpract^ help and 
financial advice; usuafiy being represented on 
the Board. 

It & this longer experience that enables 
Charterhouse to invest more selectively and 
more knowledgeably thus increasing the 
opportunity for maximum potential returns, and 
to keep their management fees to the lovvest 
level possible

Cut-price trips to your heritage 

S, i-* : 

,t Mortgage Base Rate. 

Summer may still be round 
the corner, but the British 
weather rarely affects one 
popular pastime — visiting the 
historic sites, monuments and 
gardens which make up our 
remarkable national heritage. 

Yet few visitors are aware 
that by becoming a member of 
I the organizations which look 
after these sites, they not only 
help secure their future but 
! also benefit from free or cut- 
price entry. 

The National Trust (36 
Queen Anne's Gate, London 
, SW1H 9 AS) maintains 270 
properties. Visitors get the 
chance to participate in activi- 
j ties as diverse as hand-weav- 
ing cotton at one of the first 
industrial looms, crossing 
' Coniston Water on a luxuri- 
ous Victorian steamer or dis- 
I covering at Roman gold mine 
in the heart of a Welsh 

For £14.50 annual member- 
ship there is free entry to all 

National Trust properties and 
to those of the National Trust 
for Scotland, a ma g ywm* three 
times a year, a handbook on 
properties with opening dates 
and times and a regional 
newsletter describing forth- 
coming events. A fuller guide 
to all sites is published every 
five years. 

For an additional £8.50 
each, extra members of the 
household can also enjoy an- 
nual membership. Children 
and anyone under 23 (raised 
recently from f 8) pay only £8. 

A better buy for families 
with at least one child is the 
combined family rate of £28 
which gives free entry for both 
parents and all children under 
18. A tip worth knowing is 
that pensioners can obtain 
annual membership for £10 
after they have subscribed for 
five years. 

Life membership of the 
National Trust, which is taken 

oui by more than 62,000 
people, costs £300 (or joint life 
£375). Life members are enti- 
tled to free entry for an 
accompanying guest as well as 
for themselves 

Consider life membership 
of the National Trust for a 
youngster who can not only 
expect many years of use but 
can also use bis pass to gain 
entry for a parent or friend as 
an accompanying guest. 

There can be few finer 
birthday or baptism gifts than 
life membership to the Na- 
tional Trust fin- Scotland (5 
Charlotte Square, Edinburgh 
EH24DU), which is only £170 
but will rise on November I to 
£270. A joint life rate is £270 
(to rise 10 £400). It also 
includes any children under 

The Scottish rates are a 
better bet as they are cheaper 
than the National Trust rates

for a couple). Friends are 
entitled to free entry, a copy of 
their quarterly magazine and 
10 lours through the summer

’s little refund 

Have you examined your 
PAYE notice of coding recent- 
ly? If not, have a look at your .. 
May payslip and you should 
see an increase in your, code 
number to reflect the increase 
in personal allowances' an- 
nounced by Nigd .Lawson in 
the Budget back in March. 

That increase has ' now 
worked its way through to our 
pay packets. So' has the Ip 
reduction in the basic rate at 
income tax (from 30p to 29p 
ra the £) also announced in the 

before May IS was refunded. 

The PAYE system .works by 
spreading' our personal tax 
reliefs over the year and then 
sating an appropriate fraction 
off against our . weekly or 
monthly pay. • 

Every employee is issued 
with a code of one, two 'or 
three numbers followed by a 
suffix which is normally H. L. 
P or V. The code number itself 
is inertly the total - of the 

employee's personal reliefs 
the last 

Because the : necessary ad- 
ministrative procedures take a- 
little iim& these tax changes 
did- not result in higher tax 
codes ui)ti! May 18 and so loo 
much tax was collected be- 
tween the start of the tax year 
on April 6 and May 17. Your- 
first pay packet after May 17 
should have been a bumper 
one as the excess tax paid 

with the last number omitted. 
The letters L or H indicate 
that you are entitled to the 
lower (single) personal allow- 
ance (D or the higher (mar- 
ried) allowance .(H). So a 
single person who is entitled 
to' no other reliefs than the 

single personal allowance of 


£2335 now has a tax code of 

The other tetters refer to the 
higher tax allowances avail- 

able to elderly single people 
(P) and married couples (V). 

These are now £2, $50 for a 
single person over 65 and 
£4.505 for a married couple 
■ where either husband or wife 
is over 65. It is progressively 
withdrawn where total income 
is above £9,400. The benefit of 
the allowance will not com- 
pletely nun out until the 
taxpayer has income of 
£10,675 (if . married) or 
£10.173 (if single). 

Employees who have lax 
codes with L and H letters 
should have had their tax 
codes increased in Mav by 13 
and 20 respectively." Those 
with P and V codes should 
have bad increases of 16 and 
25 in their tax codes. 

The -combined effect of 
higher tax allowances and the 
Ip cut in income lax in pay 
packets is shown by the fol- 
lowing example: Charles earns

'Assumes ad income earned by husband 

a salary of £12.000 and is 
entitled' only to the angle 
person’s rax allowance which 
was increased in the Budget by 
£130 to £2335. Charles would 
have paid too much tax j 
April as he would have been 
given a personal allowance -of 
only £2205 and would have 
been charged tax at 30 per cent 
instead of 29 per cent The 
excess tax paid in April would 
be £11 .30 and this should have 
been repaid in May. In addi- 
tion the tax charged for May 

should be similarly reduced by 
£1 1.30 so Charles's take-home 
pay for May should be £22.60 
higher than in April. 

The tabic shows the month- 
ly increase in net salary far the 
rest of ihe year for emplovees 
on different levels of income. 
The net salary increase for 
both April and May should 
have shown up on the Mav

To make sense of mainland Europe’s invest- 
ment scene. the ability to communicate with 
the experts in their own language is obviously 

But. there’s a bit more to it than being able 
to say ‘buy’, ‘bold’, and *seU* in different 
.languages, r 

- You must have in-depth local knowledge . 
of each market. The kind of total familiarity 
with what is going on 'over there’ which 
purely UK based investment analysts find it 
hard to. match. You need to look beyond 
national frontiers at sector performances on a 
global basis. 

Which explains why Capita] International 
Ltd has been appointed by Sun Alliance 
to manage the new SUN ALLIANCE 

Unlike other. Sterling European unit 
trusts, research is biased in Geneva, from 
where Capital's staff make regular and 
frequent visits around the Continent. 

.They talk face-to-face .each year- witb- 
hundreds of businessmen, brokers, invest- 
ment analysts and government officials in 
their own languages, cm their own ground. - 

This grass-roots knowledge, balanced by a 
global investment perspective, has' enabled 
the Capital Group to build up its worldwide 
funds under management, to oyer USS26 

Capital's Geneva subsidiary reports in 
depth on over 1.600 companies and publishes 
charts of over 50 international economic 
indices, quoted daily by the Financial Times, 
Wall Street Journal, *AP, Dow Jones and 

The managers of the SUN ALLIANCE 
EUROPEAN TRUST will seek capital 
growth, rather than income. They will invest 
in Europe {excluding UK), usually in 
ordinary company 4 shares. The current 

estimated starting yield is 2%. 

The price of units, and the income from 
them, riiav go down as well as up. 

The managers- of the Trust are confident 
thar a combination of falling interest rates 
and lower energy costs will give prospects of 
sustained growth for Europe's leading econo- 
mies for some time to come.

Remedy for procedural 
defect when 

pleading guilty by post 

Regina v Epping and On gar 
Justices, Ex parte C. Ship pa m 
Regular v Same, Ex parte 

Before Lord Justice Woolf and 
Mr Jusiice Maepherson 
. [Judgment given June 51 
Where a defendant pleaded 
guilty before a magistrates” court 
by post and the case was heard 
in his absence, any procedural 
defcci migh; give rise to an 
application for judicial review; 

. bui a declaration by the Queen's 
Bench Divisional Court that ihe 
proceedings hod been a nullity 
would not result in a quashing of 
the conviction and. would not 
prevent a rehearing of the case 
before the justices. 

The Divisional Court so held 
in granting a declaration on the 
application of C Shippam Lid 
and of Bnan George Breach, an 
employee of ifac company, that 
proceedings before the Eppiag 
and On gar Justices on Novem- 
ber 7. 1985. when they had 
pleaded guilty to using an 
overloaded goods vehicle on the 
highway, contrary to section 
40t5) of the Road Traffic Act 
1972 and regulation 150 of the 
Motor Vehicle (Construction 
and Use) Regulations (SI 1973 
No 1017), were a nullity. 

Mr Geoffrey Stephenson for 
the defendants; neither the 
prosecution nor the justices 
appeared or were represented. 

said that under section 12(2} of 
the Magistrates' Courts Act 
!9£0 ihe defendants had not 
appeared before the justices, but 
had given notice in writing 
indicating that they desired to 
plead guilty without appearing 
before the court. 

The court had purported to 
find them guilty and imposed 

However, the distribution 
manager of the company, a Mr 
Coulsaon, had attended court 
on the day of the hearing and 
had observed the proceedings. 

He heard the charge against 
Mr Breach, followed by a state- 
ment of the facts, after which the 
summons against the company 
was dealt with. 

He observed that the cleric of 
the court said that letters had 
been received from solicitors on 
behalf of the company and of 
Mr Breach and that one of those 
letters was read out. 

It might have been that 
although the statements in 
mi ligation had not been read 
out they had been placed before 
the justices. . 

However, the question of 
whether the justices read the 
statements in mitigation was 
not one of importance because 
of the section J2 provisions. 

Mr Coulsdon was concerned 
that the statements in mitiga- 
tion did not appear to have been 
brought before the justices. It 
bad been accepted by the jus- 
tices that those statements had 
not been read oul 

‘Section 12 of the 1980 Act 

“(4) Before accepting the plea 
of guilty and convicting the 
accused in his absence ... the 
court shall cause the notification 
and statement of facts aforesaid, 
including any submission re- 
ceived with Ihe notification 

which the accused wishes to be 
brought to the attention of the 
court with a view to mitigation 
of sentence, to be read out 
before the court." 

Having regard to the terms of 
subsecnon 4 it was contended 
an behalf of the defendants that 
ihe court (ailed to comply with 
the subsection and that not only 
the sentences imposed by the 
justices, which were respectively 
a fine of £250 on ihe company 
and a fine of £50 on Mr Breach, 
but the actual convictions were 

The requirement under sub- 
section 4 was that notices had to 
be read out before ihe accep- 
tance of pleas of guilty and 
conviction of the accused. 

However, the provisions then 
in force were considered by the 
Div isional Conn in R \ Oldham 
Justices. -Ex pane Morrissey 
(f!959J. I WLR 58) when in 
similar circumstances Lord Jus- 
tice Parker had said: 

“It seems to me. however, to 
be quite clear that, before the 
magistrates can exercise juris- 
diction in a case of this son. they 
must strictly observe the con- 
ditions of the statute. 

“Mere knowledge of the con- 
tents of the accused's sub- 
mission, the mere reading of it 
10 themselves, is not sufficient: 
the submission must be read out 
in open court. 

“That being so. the mag- 
istrates had no jurisdiction to 
convict or to pass sentence in 
this case, and the order of 
certiorari must go.” 

When a complaint was made 
to the justices on behalf of the 
applicants, the clerk commu- 
nicated with their solicitors 
drawing attention to section 1 42 
of the 1980 Act and suggesting 
that the matter could be reheard 
by a different bench in ac- 
cordance with section 142. 

Il was clear that a serious 
error had occurred, but justice 
would certainly have been done 
if the matter had been listed 
before a different bench as 

Hie subsection that might 
have been relevant was section 
142(21. which provided: 

“Where- a person is found 
guilty by a magistrates' court in 
a case in which, he has pleaded 
not guilty or the courts has 
proceeded in his jJjscnee 'under 
section Md) above, and ii 
subsequently appears to the 
court that it would be in the 
interests of justice that the case 
should be heard again by dif- 
ferent justices, the court may. 
subject to subsection (4>_below, . 
so direct” 

Subsection 4 imposed, inter 
alia, the limit of 28 days for 
applicants toavail themselves of 
subsection 2. However, sub- 
section 2 could not apply here 
because this case was not one 
where the defendants had been 

Although that appeared to be? 
a general statemenL when the 
provisions of section 1 1 were* 
examined, it was clear that i'C 
was dealing with a different 
procedure from section 12. * 

Accordingly ii would noi hava 
been within the powers of the 
justices to proceed under section! 

In that regard it was perhap$ 
unfortunate that the notes on 
that section in Stone's Justices* 
Manual and particularly the 
note to subsection 2 of section 
142 were not so clear or hclpfut 
as was usually the case. Indeed* 
-the editors might wish to gjv£ 
consideration as to whether the 
authorities were referred to as 
helpfully as was usually the case. 

Convictions were not perhaps 
to be regarded as nullities as. 
that being so. it would be open 
to the prosecution to proceed to 
a further hearing of the informa- 
tions laid against defendants. 

It would he unfortunate ins. 
deed if a slip, albeit an imf* 
portam slip of the kind ihq£ 
occurred in this case, made 
impossible to deal with the; 
defendants in relation to the. 
offences That they had unr; 
doubled ly committed. 

It might be that in cases wher 

a mistake occurred then there 

found guilty, but where they had- 
ed guilt 

pleaded guilty and the court had 
convicted them. 

Initially, the idea had been 
attractive that section 1 If Ij 
could apply in this case, namely: 

"Subject to the provisions of 
this Act. where at the time and 
place appointed for the trial or 
adjourned trial of an informa- 
tion the prosecutor appears but 
the accused does nou the court 
may proceed in his absence.” 

should be an application foe. 
judicial review. “* 

His Lordship hoped that an£ 
further applications of this kiml- 
could be made under- the con-* 
sent procedure [Practice Dircc-. 
non (Crown Office List:- 
Criminal Proceedings) <[1983] J - * 
WLR 425;] to avoid the appear- 
ance of counsel before the court! ; 
A consent application by a. 
defendant did not prevent a; 
further hearing of the case. \ l 

His Lordship referred to /?■ r* 
Setsdnn Justices. Ex parte 
Oottgan ([1482] 1 WLR 14764.! 
In that case section 12 had not' 
been involved. 

The applicant had not been* 
notified of. the hearing and the, 1 
court had purported to deal with< 
the matter in his absence under 
section II. However, advantage! 
could not be taken of section 
142(2) of the 1980 Act because] 
28 days had not expired. • 

In that judgment Lord Justice, 
O'Connor- had regarded the. 
conviction which had been en- 
tered in those circumstances at! 
being a- nullity. 

It would seem to his Lordship? 
that those words would applw 
here and that as the court 
granted a declaration in thaf 
case that the conviction was 3 
nullity, it would be appropriate 
here to grant a declaration that 
the proceedings by the justices 
in this case had been a nullity, 
but that would not prevent a 
further hearing taking place if 

His Lordship did not suppose 
for a moment that the result of 
granting a declaration in this 
foroi would be in any way 
different from the result of 
granting an order of certiorari. 

PHERSON. agreeing, said he 
did not feel that the con- 
sequence of making a declara- 
tion should be that defendants 
should avoid ihe consequence of 
their pleas of guilty.

Appealing from justices by 
way of case stated 

James and Another v Chief 
Constable of Kent 

Before Lord Justice Woolf 
and Mr Justice Macpherson 
[Judgment given June 5) 

It had to be emphasized that 
an appeal by way of case stated 
was for an examination as to 
whether the justices had erred 
on matters oflaw. Jfa defendant 
was aggrieved by a decision or 
justices as to mailers of fact, the 
proper remedy was an appeal to 
the crown court, not to the 
Queen’s Bench Divisional 

Lord Justice Woolf so stated 
when the Divisional Court dis- 
missed an appeal by way of case 
stated by Symon James and 
Denis James against their 
convictions by Margate Justices 
on August 7. 1985 when Symon 
James was found guilty of 
assaulting constables in the 
execution of their duty contrary 
to section 51(1 1 of the Police Act 
I9ti4 and Denis James was 
found guilty of obstructing con- 
stables in the execution of their 
duty contrary to section 51(3). 

Mr Charles Utley for the 
appellants: Mr Stephen 
Hockman for the prosecutor. 

said that the issue was whether 
the justices had been entitled to 
come to the conclusion that the 
police constables had been act- 
ing in the execution of their duty 
when the acts of obstruction ana 
assault bad taken place. If they 
had been so acting then the 
appeals had to (atl. 

His Lordship emphasized 
that the procedure by way of 
case stated was for an examina- 
tion as to whether the justices 
had erred on matters of law. If 
the defendant was aggrieved by 
a decision of justices on matters 
of fact, then the proper remedy 
was by appeal to the crown 

In this case, the defendants 
gja\e no evidence before the 
justices. On the basis of what 
facts the justices did hear, they 
came to certain conclusions. 

It was important m stating a 
case to re-create the impression 
given before the justices. U was 
impossible accurately to re- 
create for the benefit of the 
Divisional Court such an im- 
pression even when evidence 
was tendered in writing 
The difference benveen the 
Divisional Court and the crown 
court was that an application 
might be made to tiic crown 
court fora re-hearing 
In this case the police con- 
stables feared a breach of the 
peace and in the circumstances 
reasonably arrested Symon 
James. The arrest being reason- 
ably made. Denis James had no 
right to interfere with iL 
If the justices were right to 
conclude that on the evidence 
the constables were entitled to 
fear a breach of the peace, then 
there was no doubt that they 
were acting perfectly lawfully. 

It was not possible for the 
Divisional Court to say that the 
justices did not have sufficient 
evidence before them to come to 
the conclusion that they did. 

il was in his Lordship's view 
impossible to interfere with the 
justices' findings and he would 
accordingly dismiss the case. 

PHERSON. agreeing observed 
that the ease concerned the 
propriety of police constables 
acting in the way they did and 
that it was not a proper subject 
for an application by way of case 

Section 111(1) of the 
Magistrates' Courts Act 1M80 
Stated that such an application 
might only be made where a 
conviction, order, determina- 
tion or other procedure of a 
magistrates court was wrong in 
law or was in excess of jurisdic- 

He would reiterate Lord Jus- 
tice Woolfs words and empha- 
size that justices must exercise 
care in . reaching a decision 
.whether to state a case. 

His Lordship was of the view 
that the justices in this case had 
taken a perfectly reasonable 
view of the evidence before 
them and had properly reached 
their finding.

milers at their own game first

favourable for further success 
at Epsom. 

From the moment I saw her

Maysoon. who was runner-up 
to Midway Lady in the 1.000. 

Stouie has reservations 
about all his three. When we 
discussed their respective 
chances early this week, he left 
me with the impression that 
he wonders whether either 
Maysoon or Colorspin will see 
out a mile and a half. 

While he has no such 
qualms about Untold' stami- 
na. he would obviously have 
loved to have got a race into 
her this year. Unfortunately, a 
high temperature meant that 
she was much later than most

Mullins is

Dawn Run 

Dawn Run, this year’s 
Cheltenham Gold Cup winner, 
will have a new rider, a French 
jockey as yet unnamed, when 
she attempts a repeat of her 
1984 French Champion Hurdle 
triumph in Paris later this 

For the second time this year 
Tony Mullins, the 22-year-old 
son of the mare’s trainer, Paddy 
Mullins, has been replaced bv 
the owners. Mrs Chairman Hill 
and her son, Oliver. This fol- 
lows Dawn Run’s defeat earlier 
this week in the Prix La Barka, a 
hurdle race over two and a half 
miles, which she won in 1984; 

“I am- surprised and dis- 
appointed at this latest turn of 
events and have been given no 
explanation for being jocked 
off," Tony Mullins said- 
Dawn Run has won 
approaching £300,000 in prize 
money — a National Hunt 
record — most of those victories 
having been recorded with Tony 
Mullins in the saddle. 

However, it was the now 
retired John OTVeill who had 
the winning mount at Chelten- 
ham both in 1984 when Dawn 
Run triumphed in the Cham- 
pion Hurdle and again there this 
year as the mare became the first 
horse to complete the Cham- 
pion Hurdle - Gold Cup double. 

Mullins was back in the 
saddle when Dawn Run beat the 
ill-fated Buck House in their 
celebrated match at 
Punch estown in April. That was 
before the defeat at Auteui) 
earlier this week when the 
ground was thought to be 
against her. 

Brittain colt 
is injured 

Give Brittain reports that his 
Kentucky Derby second. Bold 
Arrange menu who disappointed 
by finishing 14th in 
Wednesday’s Derby, is injured. 

Brittain said at Epsom yes- 
terday: “Bold Arrangement has 
a pinched girth, which resulted 
in a large swelling on bis belly. 
This only showed itself this 
morning, and could have hap- 
pened after Bold Arrangement 
threw Chris McCarron in the 
paddock before the Derby. Well 
leave it for five or six days 
before we make any derisions, 
but at the moment the colt can’t 
stretch his legs property”. 

Brittain is delighted with the 
progress of bis stable star. 
Pebbles, who has been sidelined 
with a shoulder injury. “I could 
not be more pleased with her. 
She seems very well in herself 
and is making excellent 

Greenall to end 
with a win 

Peter Greenall will have bis last 
ride in public today when he 
partners Robson in the open 
race at the Torrington Farmers 
(Umberleigh. 2.0). the Iasi meet- 
ing of the point-to-point season 
(Brian Bed writes). The horse 
could provide him with his 28th 
victory of the season, a remark- 
able total, but still three short of 
John Bryan's record 10 years 

Mike Felton, whose 24 suc- 
cesses would have given him the 
championship in most other 
years, wilt have only one ride, 
on Thomascourt in the adjacent, 
and then only if Gerald 
Pro ben’s alternative entry. 
Queen Beyan. is unable to run. 

If the going is not too firm. 
Mendip Express in the ladies' 
open could provide Alison Dare 
with her 20th winner which 
would be a record for a lady

Stakes with Princess Nawaal, 
I feel that the talented Anindef 
trainer’s best opportunity to- 
day lies with Moon Madness 
in the Stones Best Biuer 
Handicap at Haydock. 

Having witnessed the ease 
with which Moon Madness 
scored at Newmarket a week 
ago. I am not remotely sur- 
prise to see Dunlop pulling 
hint out again so soon with a 
51b penalty. For Moon Mad- 
ness won his last race with so 
much in hand that the handi- 
capper has no option but lo set 
him infinitely harder tasks in 
the future, while London Bus 
is clearly useful he should not 
beat Moon Madness at a 
difference of only 61b. 

The John Of Gaunt Slakes 
would appear to give BoUin 

Knight a sound chance of 
winning his second good prize 
on the Lancashire track sea- 
son. For when he won the 
Fairey Spring Trophy there m 
May. he had Grey Desire 2 1 /:* 
lengths behind in fourth place 
They meet now on the same 
terms, as indeed do Bollin 
Knight and Homo Sapien, if 
you recall their race at Leices- 
ter in April. 

Finally, following that en- 
couraging effort against High- 
est Praise at Pontefract, Chief 
Pal is napped to win the 
second division of the Pack- 
wood Maiden Slakes at War- 
wick. where First Dibs (6.0) 
should also be a good bet lo 
win the earlier division in 
view of the way that he shaped 
at Newmarket.

Allhough the Derby was 
once run in a snowstorm, it fa

By John Woodcock. 

The Disciplinary Committee 
of die Test and County Cricket 
Board closed the tearing last 
week at which they suspended 
Ian Botham fronr playing first- 
class cricket notH Jnly 31 
(Botham has appealed against 
the- decision) by requesting a 
meeting with D J. Insole, chair- 
man of the Board's Overseas 
Toors Gnmrittee, . and PJB-H 
May, tbe chairman of selectors^ 
at' which they should ~ discuss 
discipline on England tons. 

' The inference is that the 
Disciplinary Committee feel 
they may have been kept in the 
dark about recent trends and 
that, if so, they would like to 
know why and to what extent. 
Donald Carr, secretary of the 
TCCB. said yesterday that a 
special meeting of this commit- 
tee would he held to "discuss its 
whole workings". Raman Subba 
Row, tbe Board's chairman, said 
he was "in favour of anything 
that might lead to i better 
standard of behaviour, es- 
pecially at the highest level". 

Kent have 
to give up 


(5pts) drew with Sussex (4). 

The wettest festival week at 
the Nevill ground within mem- 
ory was disrupted by the 
weather right u> the end yes- 
terday. Both captains did their 
best and a positive result looked 
likely when Kent were finally set 
a generous largei which called 
on them to make 242 in 100 
minutes and 20 overs. 

Kent were 51 for 2 from 19 
overs and were just starting to 
accelerate when one more rain 
stoppage left the field wetter 
than ever. More importantly, 

one or lwo have run it dose. 
There have not been many 
slower days than yesterday, 
when England spent 32 overs 
adding 49 runs to their over- 
night score, and India found 
runs just as hard to come by. 

What was left of England's 
innings was extraordinarily 
colourless. If no. wickets had 
. fallen, a remarkably 
crowd would have wont 
why they had bothered to 
come. In 90 minutes’ play 
before lunch England scored 
26 runs while losing Emburey, 
Pringle and Downton. 
Emburey. cutting, was caught 
in the gulley; Pringle Tost nis 
off stump as he made to hit 
Binny wide of mid-on, and 
Downton. half forward, was 
leg before to the Iasi ball of the 

When Binny then had Elli- 
son well taken al second 
by Vengsaricar. falling to his 
left, and Dilley caught at the 
wicket, he and Sharma had 
collected eight wickets be- 
tween them for 119 runs 
without resorting to any sort 
of violence. They pitched the 
ball well up and moved it 
about just enough to induce 
occasional error. Seven Indi- 
ans have previously taken five 
wickets in a Test innings al 
Lord’s, but none of them when 
still only 20, as Sharma is. 

Like most of their faster 
bowlers, Sharma comes from 
the north of India — from 
Haryana, which was carved 
out of ihe Punjab; but at 5ft 
7in he has not the martial 
appearance of some of them.

Taking a dive: an athletic Gattii^ pots an end to Srikkanth’s innings yesterday (Photograph: Chris Cole) 

that he is al home. That is one 
of the reasons why he is here. 

Studying form' from the 
press-box, no doubt with 
England's visit to Australia 
next winter in mind, was 
Allan Border, or his double. 
When Essex played Kent in 
the county championship ear- 
lier this season. Dilley had 
him leg before and the Austra- 
lian captain would not have 
been unimpressed now by 
what he saw. Once Dilley got 
wanned up he kept Gavaskar 
at full stretch, bowling fast and 
with a good rhythm. When 

Dilley overpitched. Srikkanth 
flicked him away to the Tav- 
ern boundary and drove him 
to the pavilion rails. 
Srikkamh's brief innings, 
much the most attractive of 
the day. ended when Gatling 
look a good tumbling catch. 

Except on a turning wicket 
in Bombay, when Edmonds 
and Cowans took the new ball 
with India needing only 51 to 
win. England's attack had not 
been opened by two bowlers 
from the same county, as it 
was yesterday, since 
Shull] ew’onh and Lever were 

at opposite ends once or twice 
in the early 1 970s. .As he tends 
to do. Ellison. Dilley's partner 
now. had trouble with his line, 
again bowling a shade too 
wide of the off stump. Howev- 
er. he got the odd one 
pastGavaskar. and with Lhe 
Imlc man in a mean mood 
that takes some doing. 

India had started batting at 
2.30. By tea. 70 minutes later, 
they were 41 for one. Soon 
afterwards, bad light, then 
rain, brought a stoppage of an 
hour. It was wonderful, when 
Gavaskar and Amarnath 

came out again, bow many 
spectators had had the pa- 
tience and hardiness to stay 

They saw Amarnath in oc- 
casional trouble outside his 
off-stump — he survived a 
technical chance to Emburey 
at third slip off Ellison — and 
watched Gavaskar getting his 
head right over the ball, 
almost sniffing as he did so. 
And they started eventually to 
voice their boredom. It is 
beginning already to look like 
an un memorable draw._but 
you never know. 

Boycott’s tactics 
stymie Yorkshire 

By Peter Ball 

SHEFFIELD: Derbyshire 
(22pfs) bl Yorkshire (7) by 99 

A generous declaration by 
Kim Barnett, an explosive spell 
of five wickets in 23 bolls from 
Michael Holding and an innings 
of calculated stodginess by- 
Geoffrey Boycott, which seems 
likely to revive old enmities, 
brought Derbyshire a conclusive 
first victory of the season yes- 
terday, only their second against 
Yorkshire in 29 years. * 

Barnett’s, declaration, tbe sec- 
ond of the morning after Derby- 
shire had been given some easy 
runs, asked Yorkshire ro score 
2 SO in a minimum of 75 overs. 

In fact they would have 'bowled 
at least 81. That looked most 
foolhardy, let alone generous. 

. but Yorkshire made no son of 
shot at it at all as Boycott 
dropped anchor from the start 
and was never to lift iL 

His slowness accumulating 
just six in die first 20 overs 
made it incumbent on bis 
partners to push things along. 

Moxon. who is also sometimes a 
. prisoner of his own technique, 
belatedly realized that his part- 
ner was not going to accept the 
responsibility and swung 
horrendously across tbe line. 

' Metcalfe. Sharp and Love also 
succumbed quickly in the at- 
tempt to improve the situation, 
the first two edging drives to 
Marples in the same over as 
Jean-Jaoques made his by now 
customary mark on the proceed- 
ings. and Love hitting Miller to 

Love's departure brought 
Bairsiow bristling to the wicket 
like an angry bantam. Miller 
was. dismissed with two sixes 
over the pavilion at i crag-on, the 
second clearing the squash 
courts behind it ‘ as well. 

Morten sen was greeted with

J to victory 

similar aggression and as 
Bairstow’s example briefly 
prodded Boycott into slightly 
more purposeful action, the pair 
put on 58 in the 10 overs before 

Four overs afterwards, how- 
ever. Bairstow holed out and the 
break went on. The asking rate 
had grown to around six an over 
when Holding made such 
calculations academia Appar- 
ently nearing the end of his long 
spell, he summoned his last 
reserves to end Boycott’s stay of 
59 overs for 69 runs, three overs 
before the final 20 began. With 
that obstacle removed, he ran 
through the tail. Roberts and 
Marples helping with excellent 
close catches.

(5pis) drew with Warwickshire 

( 8 ). 

Gloucestershire, 100 runs on 
overnight, batted until lunch- 
time. Aihey scored a handsome 
96 — he seems to me to have 
become a much stronger can- 
didate for the England side since 
he shed the Tyke-fab quarrels 
and came to Gloucestershire. 

The rest of them slashed 
around a bit and Graveney felt 
able to declare without batting 
on after_ lunch, leaving 
Warwickshire 315 to get at 
about six to the over. This 
sounds stiff bui the pitch was 
fairly easy, as it had been for 
most of the match, and the 
outfield was drier and faster 
than hitherto. 

There was a question mark 
over the weather but the clouds 
were high. Smith was bowled 
and Lloyds caught in the slips 
fairly soon. It was a good 
opening burst by Lawrence. But 
KaUicharran and Amiss settled 

After the 100 was up in the 
thirtieth over Kallicharran be- 
gan to let himselfgo and hit two 
handsome fours while Lloyds 
was trying to find a length. Tea 
was taken at 116 for two after 31 
overs and the required run-rate 
was still approximately six. 

After 40 overs the score was 
163. with two great, if ageing, 
batsmen going comfortably and 
the Gloucestershire outcricket 
had - lost some of its rhythm, 
partly through injuries to Law- 
rence and Curran. Graveney 
and Walsh sustained the bowl- 
ing. At 180 Graveney. whose 
steadiness under the strain was 
impressive. induced 

Kallicharran to play on. 

Amiss reached an admirable 
100. With ten overs to go, and 

catches wherever Warwickshire 
tried to bait them. Amiss at last 
found a safe home at cover and 
80 were needed. 

The last 10 overs saw a 
complete transformation. Once 
their two heroes were out. and 
Hum page was also gone, caught 
at mid-on. Warwickshire wa- 
vered badly and Somerset 
crowded the bat. But 
Gloucestershire had not quite 
the bowling to get them out. and 
though Graveney brought 
Siovold on, an unfamiliar sight, 
and he had Asif caught on the 
legside at the wicket, a splendid 
catch, they managed to survive.

Led by James Whitaker’s 
responsible and unbeaten 88, 
the highest score of the match, 
Leicestershire achieved their 
first Championship victory this 
season. He hit 13 boundaries in 
a 143-minute innings to ensure 
they reached with ease their

Soon after restarting the final 20 
overs were signalled, with 176

understandably given up. 

.First thing, after a delayed 
start, Sussex were seldom able to 
score as quickly as they wanted. 

Underwood beat Green with a 
quicker ball, Leo ham lost pa-

For the third innings in the 
match two bowlers shared the 
bulk of the wickets. Agnew took 
four for 61 and Benjamin five 
for 41, his best first class figures 
in this, his first season. He was, 
though, warned for shon-pilch 
bowling at Pocock. 

In deference to Surrey, they 
lost some wickets attempting to 
hurry the scoring along. Lynch 
wafted outside the off-stump; 
Stewart and Needham at- 
tempted rash hooks and skied to 

On the face of it. 
Leicestershire's target was not a 
stiff one. assuming they could 
contend with Gray's extra lift. 
Yet their first three batsman 
amassed only seven runs be- 
tween them. It was not Gray but 
Doughty who broke through. 

POitcr. still struggling lo fulfil 
his potential, failed to get over a 
ball of full length and edged to 
second slip. Next ball Willey 
was leg before padding up. Cobb

Monkhouse to him at mid-off.

Gracida much 
too swift for 
his opponents 

By John Watson 

In tbe semi-finals of the 
Queen’s Cup, sponsored by 
Dunhill, which were concluded 
at Smith's Lawn, Windsor, yes- 
terday Tramontana (received I) 
beat Chopendoz. 9-$ and Les 
Diabfes Bleus beat Southfield 
(received 1). 9-8- 
The first match was largely 
dominated by Carlos Grad da, 
the Mexican 10-handicap 
layer, who nearly always left 
is opponents behind. He 
scored six goals, two from 
penally conversions. It was 3-3 
at Lhe end of the second chtikka, 
but when Gracida mounted 
Noni. a remarkably swift Mexi- 
can mare, for the third, he put 
his team perpetually at the 
Chopendoz end and found their 
flags twice. It seemed clear that 
Chopendoz would never catch 
up again. Nor did they. 

In the second tussle Memo, 
Gracida’s brother, positioned at 
No. 3 for Les Diables Bleus. was 
not so prominenL He was too 
well marked by Alan Kent, 
frequently leaving the way dear 
for Owen Rinehart, the Ameri-

Lendl reaches 
final with 

From Rex Bellamy, Tennis Correspondent, Paris 

Ivan Lendl, champion in 
19S4 and runner-up in 1981 
and I9S5. has again reached 
ihc men's singles final or ihe 
French championships. He 
bcai Johan Kriek 6-2. 6-1. 6-0 
\esicrday in only an hour 3nd 
16 minutes. 

Had this been a first round 
match on an outside court it 
would swiftly have emptied 
the stands. As a semi-final 
played on the centre court it 
was an inescapable embarrass- 
ment In the last 12 games 
Kriek scored only 1 1 points 
and was subjected to catcalls, 
boos and mocking sarcasm 
from those spectators who 
were still taking an interest 

Kriek is no mug. He has 
won the Australian title twice, 
has reached the semi-finals of 
the Unites Slates champion- 
ship and the quarter-finals at 
Wimbledon, and - to his own 
surprise as much as anyone's 
— has suddenly matured into a 
shale-court ‘ player good 
enough to produce a superb 
match against Guillermo 
Vilas. The bubble had to 
burst. It burst yesterday. 

The playing conditions were 

not of a kind to inspire in 

MEN'S SINGLES: Semi-finals: I 
Lendl (Cz) bt J Krrek (US). 6-2. 6-1. 
6-0: M Leconte (Fr) leads M Pernfors 
(Swej. d-3. 

WOMEN'S SINGLES: Semi-finals: 
M Navratilova (US) bt H Sukova 
(Cz). 4-6. 7-6. 6-2: C Uoyd (US) bt H 
Mandlikova (Cz). 6-1. 6-1. 

Kriek any fleeting thoughts 
that the improbable was possi- 
ble. Even in the sheltered 
depths of the court, the tem- 
perature was only 55 to 57°F. 
Throughout the match Kriek 
wore two layers over his 
muscular torso and Lendl 
retained long navy-blue 

The day was also overcast 
and breezy, and was further 
depressed by rain so light that 

it seemed to hover than fall — 
which is to say that it was 
enough to make everybody 
damp but not enough to stop 
play, as it would have done at 
Wimbledon or Flushing 
Meadow because the courts 
would have been greasy. Lendl 
insisted that the court had 
become slippery. "It was also 
\cry cold and the wind was 
twisting — we didn't know 
where it was coming from. 
The conditions were really 

Kriek is whimsical vulnera- 
ble to fickle moods and im- 
pulses. At times he respected 
the percentages yet tried to 
bury the game ’ and move 
Lendl about without doing 
anything daft. More often 
Kriek was indiscreetly liberal, 
almost slapdash, in his choice 
of shots and tactics. Eventual- 
ly he looked so nonchalant, so 
resigned, so sardonic, that one 
suspected he knew the party 
was over — and was not going 
to argue about it. 

**1 have never been so cold 
on a tennis court," Kriek said 
later, "and I was disgusted 
with the way i played. You 
can't play decent tennis on a 
day like this — and 1 have a 
sore wrist, because I injured it 
playing Vilas. Nothing 
worked. 1 couldn’t keep any- 
thing together. 1 fell apart and 
I lost my intensity, my will to 
win. 1 beat myself. The guy 
never had an opponent." 

Lendl, on the other hand, 
did play decent tennis. He was 
eneigetic. tidy, mostly content 
to let Kriek lake the initiative 
and make mistakes. Given an 
obvious Chance to hit a win- 
ner. Lendl opened his shoul- 
ders and hit it. Otherwise he 
was like an angler whose fish 
was on the hook. Lendl played 
his fish, then reeled him in 
and landed him. 

Enter the dashing French 


Cold sweat: Paris was so chilly and Kriek so inept that Lendl 
had to keep warm by retaining his track suit bottoms 
hero. Henri Leconte, in the 
company of an Americanised 
Swede. Mikael Pernfors, 
whose name was no more than 
a respectful rumour until this 
year. Leconte is fresh and fit 
after four months out of action 
because of a blood disorder. 

He resumed serious competi- 
tion only three weeks ago. 

Pernfors is a jerky, overtly 
intense player. He cannot 
match Leconte's power, nor 
h is touch. But the Swede is 
smart, quick and neat He 
seldom misses a trick, seldom 
makes a mistake. 

Tall climb ahead for Kelesi 

The top three seeds in the 
women's singles ai the Beck- 
enham tournament, sponsored 
by Direct Line Insurance, have 
reached the semi-finals. Helen 
Kelesi. the outsider in the group 
from Canada, knows how io 
descend mountains - she is an 
enthusiastic skier - but will 
have to climb one if she is to 
become the voungest champion 
on the Kent courts since Andrea 
Jaeger won in the week of her 
15th birthday in 1980. 

Miss Kelesi is 16 and faces a 
tall order, both figuratively and 
physically. She is ranked 3 1st in 
the world while the other 
contenders. Pam Shriver. Bar- 
bara Potter and Terry Phelps, 
are in the top 20. Should the 5ft 
5in Canadian scale the 5ft 9in 
Miss Potter today, she will then 
be confronted by a higher peak. 

By David Powell 

either the 5ft 10m Miss Phelps 
or the 6l'l Miss Shriver. 

What Miss Kelesi lacks in 
height, she makes up for in 
tenacity and movement. "I used 
to be3 gy mnast When I was 1 1 1 
could do back flips on the 
beanv" Miss Kelesi said. Yes- 
terday Camille Benjamin, of the 
United Suites, found the 
Canadian's athleticism all too 
much and was defeated 6-2. 6-3. 

“I'm an aggressive player and 
1 like the net." Miss Kelesi said, 
which is not surprising: her 
favourite player is Jimmy Con- 
nors. The match was fast and 
furious but was no match for the 
chilly weather both players 
wore track suit trousers and 
pullovers throughout 

Misses Shriver, Potter and 
Phelps have each played their 
part in keeping the women's 
championship in the hands of 

the United States for the past six 
years. In a repeat of the 1982 
final. Miss Shriver defeated 
Elizabeth Smylie (then Miss 
Sayers) 7-6. 6-0 but had to 
recover from 4-5 down and 
love-40 on Mrs Smylie's service 
in the first set “This is the 
strongest Beckenham in a long 
time.” Miss Shriver said. 

As in Paris, these champion- 
ships have suited, the best 
women but not the men. The 
top seven men seeds are out 
with Paul Annacone. the No. I, 
losing yesterday to Scott Davis, 
his fellow American.

They began the match in 
long white trousers, pleasant 
reminders of the game's infan- 
cy and adolescence. In the first 
set Pernfors- was confused by 
the diversity of method with 
which Leconte tucked the ball 
just inside the line. Leconte 
broke service twice and in the 
second set he broke through 
again for 3-1. Pernfors was 
doubtless impressed but evi- 
dently not intimidated. He 
broke back for 3-4. But tennis, 
like the rest oflife, spoils half 
its best crises. The duel was 
rained ofT just as it was 
becoming interesting.

Compromise can avoid split 

By David Hands, Rugby Correspondent 

Colin Meads, coach to the 
unofficial New Zealand learn 
whose lour in South Africa 
ended last weekend, will meet 
members of ihe New Zealand 
Rugby Union Council on Mon- 
day to explain the background 
to the tour which has caused 
such dismay throughout world 

The council has yet to decide 
upon what action to take against 
the players, most of whom have 
vet to Vetum to New Zealand, 
but none of them have been 
chosen for the New Zealand trial 
on June 21, a week before the 
first All Blacks international of 
their winter, against France. 

Only three iriaiisis: Boroevich 
and Davie, the props, and 
Sherlock, the centre, have worn 
the national jersey before, 
though two other full inter- 
nationals who did not go to 
South Africa. Kirk and Kirwan. 
play in the inter-Ireland game 
on June 18 which also acts as a 

Whatever action is taken by 
New Zealand, it will not alter 
the fact that the amateur regula- 
tions as they now stand are 
virtually inoperable and it is this 
that representatives of the Inter- 

national Rugby Football Board, 
meeting in London this week- 
end. must come to terms with. 

The meeting is on a semi- 
official nature, preparing the 
ground for a full board meeting 
on amateurism in October, and 
there must be some kind of 
compromise between, broadly 
speaking, northern and southern 
hemisphere ideals if a split in 
world rugby is not to occur. 

When a South African dele- 
gate can state, as one did during 
the board's centenary congress 
in April, that the board should 
acknowledge professional rugby 
because it was known that 
players were receiving rewards, 
if not directly then through their 
wives and families: when play- 
ers will talk about fees paid for 
dinner engagements, for per- 
sonal appearances, for celebra- 
tion games in which officials 
have io connive: then the weight 
of circumstantial if not docu- 
mentary evidence which faces 
the board becomes 

They must also acknowledge 
that the way the game is 
organized in different countries 
of itself creates different inter- 

pretations of amateurism and 
that recognition must extend to 
countries which are not board 

Sad though it may be to say 
so. too many players — and 
administrators — in too many 
countries have made it impos- 
sible to enforce Ihe current 
amateur law worldwide. But the 
board can insist that no one 
should be paid for playing the 
game; in a world where all 
players, once they reach a 
certain status, can work out the 
simple equation that commit- 
ment equals time equals money, 
that may be all the board can do. 

Cap ban likely 

Three clubs suspended by the 
Welsh Rugby Union disci- 
plinary committee for having 
five players sent off last season 
could also be banned from the 
Schweppes Cup competition. 
The dubs, only two of which 
have been named — Brynmawr 
and Blaenau Gwent — have been 
suspended for the fust 14 days 
of the season, and could be 
ineligible for the first prelimi- 
nary round of the Cup on 
September 13. 

Gerald Davies mourns the death yesterday of John Bevan 

Tragic loss of rare devotion 

John Bevan. the former 
Welsh coach and international, 
who died at his home in Port 
Talbot yesterday, aged 38. from 
cancer, will be deeply and sadly 
missed by both the rugby and 
cricketing fraternities in Wales. 

He was a marvellously 
competitive sportsman. From 
his days at school he had 
excelled and gone on to repre- 
sent Wales in the two sports 
and. until the onset of his 
prolonged and cruel Illness more 
than a year ago, was actually 
still involved in both. 

This success continued while 
he was a student at St Lake's 
College. Exeter, and it was 
confidently predicted then, given 
that rogby was to be ills chosen 
sport, that he was going to make 
a great contribution to Wales's 
national game. He had not only 
shown a rare level of playing 
talent but, had revealed a 
remarkable maturity as a team 
captain. That this early promise 

never truly came to fruition was 
due in large part to a set of 
unfortBuare circumstances. 

He was. undoubtedly, a gifted 
stand-off half, but he played in a 
period when competition and 
controversy for the position was 
at its fiercest. It is, historically, 
the case that two players emerge 
at the same time to vie for that 
most treasured or positions in 
Welsh sport. It fell to bis lot to 
compete against Phil Bennett — 
the obvious sparkling choice of 
the people — whereas be, Bevan, 
it was felt, had the greater 
qualities to better benefit the 

ft is a perennial Welsh debate 
crystalized, in the simplest 
terms, between, on the one side, 
the sound man of balanced 
efficiency, against the instinc- 
tive, toe-tapping spontaneity of 
the other. It is not the whole 
truth but through the filter of 
constant argument it is the way 
it emerged. 

But after playing a full season 

for Wales in 1975. his second 
opportunity came in 1977. Amid 
frantic publicity Bennett was 
dropped and Bevan was chosen, 
but be had to withdraw because 
of illness. The chance did not 
come a gpiw- 

After retirement he took to 
coaching his dub — to which he 
gave the same assiduous atten- 
tion — and, after two years, 
guided A be ra von away from the 
doldrums. Then, in 1982. he was 
appointed to be the coach of the 
Welsh team. With no other 
obvious candidates, it can in 
retrospect be seen, perhaps, to 
have been a premature decision. 

John Bevan had a genuine 
love and understanding of the 
game and. despite* the many 
criticisms that be had to suffer 
from some players and support- 
ers alike — but which he took in 
hb stride - be bad the unstint- 
ing support of many, many more 
who knew that bis kind of 
devotion was nue.

The best-bid plans of the 
Raleigh and Peugeot pro- 
fessional teams were scuppered 
for a second time in 24 hours 
yesterday when Sergei 
Zmievsky of the Soviet Union 
won the eleventh stage of the 
Milk Race at Welwyn Garden 

The Raleigh rider. Paul Wat- 
son. from Milton Keynes, and 
one of three Frenchmen in the 
Peugeot team. Jean Guerin, had 
been with the 22-year-okl since 
the irio took off from the bunch 
at Wing, halfway through the 
95- mile stage from Windsor. 

Their ihree-minute lead at 
Stevenage was down to I mm 
20scc when they began climbing 
Digswcll HiD, five miles from 
ihe finish. Approaching the top, 
Watson tentatively attacked on 
the right of the winding road, 
but Zmievsky .immediately 
counter-attacked on the left ana 
raced dear to win the stage by 32 

Guerin outsprimed Watson 
for second place, while the man 
in second place overall. Mal- 
colm Elliott, consolidated his 
leadership of the points com- 
petition by outwitting the rapid 
Russian. Djamolidine 
Abdujaparov. to take fourth 
place, one minute down on the 

Elliott's ANC-Halfords team 
colleague. Joey McLoughlin. re- 
tained his overall lead of 2min 
4Ssec after a relatively easy 
stage. “It was my best day since 
winning ihe yellow jersey ,” said 
the 2 1 -year-old Liverpudlian, 
who looks certain to become the 
first home winner of the Milk 
Race for a decade when the 
1. 1 00-mile event finishes this 
afternoon with a 38-bp 80-mile 
circuit race based on Waterloo 
Bridge. London. 

It is a stage that Elliott is keen 
to win. "I finished second three 
limes on the last stage. I hope 1 
can beat the jinx this time.” said 
the confident Sheffield rider.

Roger Burnett won his first 
Isle of Man TT victory by a clear 
margin after machine problems 
pushed his main rivals out of 
contention yesterday in a Senior 
race packed with incidents. 

Apart from running into a 
swarm of flies which badly 
blurred his visoc, the Rothmans 
Honda Britain rider had a 
relatively trouble-free race on 
the RS500 machine which he 
rode in the British 

Burnett revealed afterwards 
that he was on the verge of 
changing his helmet after bp 
four, bui after a dean-up in the 
pits, his night's dream returned. 
“I jumped out of bed after 
dreaming I had won the race and 
beaten my team-mate, Joey 
Dunlop," he said. 

Burneu suddenly found him- 
self moving from fourth place to 
first in the final two laps of the 
226-mile Senior race after team- 
mate. Roger Marshall, surren- 
dered the race lead through 
losing precious time in the pits 
while adjusting his chain. 

Earlier Marshall fought a tight 
battle with Trevor Nation 
(Suzuki ). who had kd for laps 
two and three before fuel starva- 
tion put him out at the 32nd

Lee shows that his promise 
is no flash in the pan 

Robert Lee maintained his 
astonishing p rogress as a pro- 
fessional when he compiled a 
second-round 65 for the halfway 
lead in the Dunhill British 
Masters on the Duke's course at 
Woburn Golf and Country Club 

Lee. 24. a former En- 
gland Youth international, has a 
36-hole aggregate of 134. which 
is 10 undet par. and he leads by 
one stroke from Severiano 
Ballesteros (second-round 68) 
and by two from Bernhard 
Longer (68). 

Two victories in the autumn 
of last season — the Cannes and 
Brazilian opens— confirmed the 
rich promise which Lee had 
demonstrated he possessed ear- 
lier in 1985. He matched the 
world record of 27 for nine holes

There seemed a danger that 




By John Hennessy 

Jeffrey Birtwell. competing in 
the amateur championship for 
the first time since 1969, is a 
quite unexpected finalist at 
Royal Lytham St Annes today. 
He came grittily from behind to 
beat, first, John Metcalfe, after 
losing four of the first seven 
holes, and then Bryan Shields, 
after losing two of the first four 
boles. In both matches Birtwell 
took the lead for the first time, 
crucially, at the 18th hole. 

In the final Birtwell win play 
David Curry, an England inter- 
national of 1984, who, scarcely 
less surprisingly, beat Peter 
McEvoy, twice a former winner 
of this title. It seemed that 
McEvoy had got the measure of 
his man by recovering from 
three down at one point to 
square the match. He bravely 
halved the 18th, in spite of 
driving into a bunker, but he 
repeated the indiscretion at the 
first extra hole 

For a time it seemed the 
thunderbolt might strike twice. 
Birtwell, now 41 and twice his 
opponent's age, got back to all 
square at the sixth only to pun 
off the green at the eighth and 
miss a second putt of only 18 
inches at the next. 

Shields, however, com- 
prehensively lost the I2tb and 
14th. the first with a two iron 
out of bounds and the second 
with a series of misadventures 
on either side or the fairway. 

Thus they came to the 18th. 
where an experienced head pro- 
duced a model four, whereas 
Shields went from one greenside 
bunker to the other and con-

Lee. who is as relaxed on the golf 
course as he is in ihe dubs where 
be loves to disco the night away, 
might enjoy life too much to 
become a consistent contender. 
Nothing further from 
the truth. He neither smokes nor 
drinks, and he has shots in his 
bag that more experienced 
campaigners would godly bor- 
row from him. . . 

For instance, he hoisted a 
lovely sand wedge shot over two 
towering trees to within eight 
feet of the hole for a birdie at the 
long fourth. He immediately 
followed that by rutting an 
imperial one-iron shot into the 
green at the fifth yards) 
then coaxed home the puu from 
20 feet for a two. The only error 
he cornroitted in a round of 
eight birdies came at the nmui 
where he three putted. . 

Earlier this week Lee received 
a request from Ballesteros to do 
an impersonation of the 
Spaniard’s swing. He duly 
obliged, but he will most cer- 
tainly play his own game today 

when he will be pawed with 
Ballesteros. “Seve's got a smite 
on his face this week, so t gitess 
he is plating but Tm no* 
doing too bad!}- myself," Lee 

Ballesteros had an . 
adventurous round in which “ 
three of his six birdies «ime in 
the last four botes. Langer 
provided more conventional 
entertainment for the gallery by 
inhering five birdies and drop- 
ping only one shot. Rick 
Hartmann, the American who 
led after the first round, re- 
mained in touch with a 72 for a 
score of 13& But Lee Trevino, 
the defending champion, was' 
more concerned with surviving 
the' halfway csl which he did 
with the help of three bodies m 
his last seven holes far a 72.

Pinero is banned 
after trial by TV 

inKpi. Srara- l h tata. Butwefl bt Shields 1 
Dote; Curry M McEvoy at 19tfi. 

By Mitcbell Platts 

Manuel Pifiero was feeling 
yesterday a little like the motor- 
ist caught by the police travel- 
ling 48mph ami who protests 
that be had no idea be was 
driv in g through a bnBt-up area 
with a strict speed front. 

The Spaniard's violation of 
Rule 13, concerning the 
improvement of the lie of the 
baU, had been captured by 
tetevisfon and examined b y the 
experts and led to his departure 
through disqualification from 
the Dunhill British Masters. 

Pinero committed his so- 
called crime at the 17th hole in 
the first round on Thnrsday. He 
was placed on trial by televirion 
as he dragged his . foot dose to 
the ball so that be flattened a 
clomp of grass which might hare 
interfered with the shaft of his 
dub while executing the shot. 

The instant analysis of Peter 
Altiss, the Conner Ryder Cup 
golfer who is now the leading 

commentator on the sport for the 

BBC. provided most armchair 
spectators with the first hint that 
Pifiero had contravened the 
rules. AHiss, commentating lire, 
said: “A bit of nimble footwork 
there which I doubt was strictly 
kosher, but who am I to say?” 

The average “hacker”, teeing 
up for his monthly medal this 
weekend, would probably have 
been unaware that such a rule 
existed, although he would al- 
most certainly be prepared to 
play judge and jury and find 
Pifiero immediately guilty as 
charged on the Strength of the 
information that has been ex- 
pounded since rise incident. 

Re would - be right. That, 
however, does not make Pifiero a 
Amt The diminutive former 
caddie from Madrid is as honest 
as the day is long. It was right to 
disqualify -him, for he broke the 
role of golf, but it would he 
wrong to chastise him. - 

Pifiero,' to his credit ret urned 

Pinero: wrong to chastise 

to the Woburn Golf and Country 
Club yesterday morning to offer 
his own explanation. "I have 
bees a professional since 1969,” 
he said. “’And this is the first 
time that anything like this has 
happened to me. 

-My i n terpretation of the ^ 
rale, and it would be the same 
today if this had not happened to 
me, is that I fairly took up my 
stance. Having done so. I did not 
want to move my right foot. 1 felt 
that if I did that then it might be 
taken that 1 had improved my 
situation by treading on the 

-I made a mistake. I know 
that now. but I feel that 1 
misinterpreted the rule. I believe 
that it is possible to know 75 per 
cent of the rales but that the 
ether 25 per cent is governed by 
interpretation. Lam sure 1 have 
done the same thing in the past. 

But 1 am equally sure (hat it wfll 
not happen again." 

When two golfers are hacking 
their way down either side of a 
fairway it is up to them to be 
honest not so much with one and JLj 
other but with themselves. 


Queen’s Cup 
for Ice Man 

Mra Davina Whiteman's Ice 
Man. winner of the Ridden 
Hunter championship on the 
first day of the Royal Cornwall 
Show, gained further honours 
there yesterday when he won the 
Queen's Cup for the best exhibit 
in the light horse classes. 

This was the first time he had 
been shown. Miss Joyce 
Newbery’s cwo-year-oid pony, 
Necta Super Star, earned his 
ticket to Wembley when he won 
the Lloyd's Bank In-Hand 

The winner of the Next and

Scots’ biggest 

obstacle may 

be obstruction 

Scotland’s hopes of reviving 
their World Cup campaign 
rest on a combination of their 
four remaining forwards. 
Archibald. McAvennie, Sharp 
and Cooper, as yet to be 
determined by their manager. 
Alex Ferguson. The injuries to 
Nicholas and Slurrock in the 
opening match against Den- 
mark have put an extreme 
strain on their already limited 
prospects in the most difficult 
of groups. 

The expectation here yester- 
day was that Ferguson will use 
Cooper on the left flank, the 
Rangers' winger who rescued 
them in the qualifying tie in 
Cardiff, and Sharp. Everton's 
central forward, to exploit his 
heading ability. Sharp would 
be partnered by either 
McAvennie. who came on to 
replace Sturrock. or 
Archibald, who was- excluded 
from the Danish match. 

Cooper’s inclusion will 
probably mean that Strachan 
is omitted, with the alterna- 
tives of Nicol transferring to 
the right flank of midfield, or 
McStay, of Celtic, being intro- 

Feiguson. who is showing 
no signs of panic in spite of the 
additional pressures placed 
upon his squad, said yester- 
day: “Denmark were always 

From David Miller, Queretaro 
will come from Germany's 
persistent obstruction. The 
Germans picked up in their 

opening match where they had 
ieft off four years ago in t 


final against Italy. Although 
Uruguay were guilty of the 
more dirty tackles. Germany 
were as much to blame for 
regular obstruction and if 
Cooper and the others are to 
have a chance it will probably 
depend upon the effectiveness 
of the Romanian referee. Igna. 

Speculation continues on 
whether Beckenbauer. 
Germany's manager, will start 
the match with his injury- 
troubled. ageing star. 
Rummenigge. who came on 

going to present us with the 

most difficulties because of 
their style of play and 1 had 
intended to make changes for 
the second game. Now I am 
obliged to. We are more 
comfortable against the Ger- 
man style of playing; we know 
it well but it is a fact that they 
play it better than anyone 

Graeme Souness, Scotland's 

captain, supports this view. 
Having watched 

the first half 
of West Germany's match 
with Uruguay, he said he 
thought that they were the best 
team he had seen so fan 
though that was before he had 
stepped on to the field against 
the Danes. 

The difficulty for Scotland's 

rearranged attack, quite apart 
from any lack of familiarity. 

for only the last 20 minutes in 
place of Matthaus in the first 
match. Beckenbauer said that 
he was satisfied with all but 
five minutes of that match, 
though like many men in 
charge he was frustrated by his 
team's inability to put the ball 
in the net. It was only with six 
minutes to spare that Allots 

Scotland's rearguard will 
need to be as alert and 
confident as they were for 
much of the time against 
Denmark if they are to hold 
Votler, who seems fully to 
have recovered from injury. I 
would expect him to be 
marked by McLeisb if Miller 
is to continue as sweeper. 
Were Scotland to gain a point, 
they could be helped in the 
possibility of qualifying in 
third place were Denmark to 
defeat the Uruguayans, 
though my expectation is that 
Uruguay's combination of 
skill and expediency will frus- 
trate Piontek's team. 

With Italy continuing their 
cautious way in die draw with 
Argentina — Bergomi, the 
Inter frill back became the first 

Irish can overturn the 
laws of logic again 

From Clive White, Guadalajara 

Northern Ireland, whose at- 
tack at its most virile is little 
more than feeble, must now 
overcome ill health in that 
area to defeat Spain, the 
European Championship run- 
ners-up, if they are to advance 
to the second phase today. 
That said, the odds seemed to 
be encouragingly sucked 
against the Irish. 

Spain will thank no-one for 
painting a picture of hopeless- 
ness for the Irish. Three times 
since 1972 very good reasons 
have been put forward for 
Northern Ireland to be 
thrashed by Spain but each 
time the Ulstermen, as is their 
way, have overturned logic. 
They did so most heroically 
four years ago this month in 
the last World Cup when, 
finishing with 10 men after the 
innocent Donaghy had been 
sent off, they defeated the 
hosts 1-0 in Valencia 

That victory merely con- 
demned Spain to an uneasy 

g oup with England and West 
ermany. This time it could 
mean elimination. 

One thing we do know is 
that if the Irish do win today 
they will finish second in the 
group (first if they beat Brazil 
in the Jalisco Stadium next 
Thursday) but then they will 
need another small miracle to 
proceed a single step further 
with probably Denmark. Uru- 
guay or West Germany imme- 
diately barring the way. 

Northern Ireland's major 
hopes rests upon the absence 
of Maceda, Spam's bkmde 
Adonis, in the middle of 
defence. A knee injury has 
brought a swift conclusion to 
his championship. 

It could open the door for 
Northern Ireland who are 
suffering more than usual 
themselves in the counter 
department of central attack. 
Billy Bingham, the Irish man- 
ager desperate for real aggres- 
sion against Algeria, brought 

back Hamilton for his first 
game in 15 months but he got 
little change out of the sturdy 
Korichi and missed the one 
chance that he had. It seems 
likely that Clarke, of whom 
Torino have expressed an 
interest, will return 
Defensively, Bingham is un- 
likely to rock the boat which 
means no place for 
McClelland, who thought he 
had worked well enough in 
Albuquerque to warrant his 
inclusion. One senses that 
victory in the Third of March 
Stadium and an honorable 
performance against Brazil 
would more than satisfy Irish

Koreans must 
now beat 
Cup holders 

Mexico City (Reuter) — 
South Korea thwarted 
Bulgaria's ambitions of their 
first win in a World Cup finals 
when they held them 1-1 in a 
rain-s6aked thriller at the 
Olympic Stadium here on 

The draw left the South 
Koreans with only the faintest 
glimmer of hope of advancing 
to the last 16. To do so they 
would have to beat Italy, the 
world champions, on Tues- 
day. Bulgaria, having drawn 
with the Italians, are better 
placed. Even another draw 
against Argentina on Tuesday 
could put them through. 

Plamen Getov put Bulgaria 
ahead in the eleventh minute. 
With the goalkeeper caught 
way off his line. Getov coolly 
lobbed the ball in. 

Kim Jong- boo, a substitute, 
gave the Asian side a well- 
deserved equalizer in the sev- 
entieth minute. He took 
possession in the box. turned 
quickly and stabbed the ball 
past Mikhailov.

the moment. Although Uru- 
guay, who remain my 
favourites, have staying pow-

as if Europe might provide a 
winner in Latin America for 
the first time in the World 

In drawing with the Rus- 
sians in Leon, France showed 
they had lost none of their 
inventiveness in midfield. 
There were purple patches 
from Giresse, Platini, Tigana 
and Fernandez which reduced 
the formidable Russians to the 
ranks of the ordinary for 
minutes at a time. 

If only the French had one 
reliable goal-scorer we could 
be talking about them as 
double champions. In their 
present shape, however, the 
Russians are giving a warning 
that they will progress to the 
semi-finals at least with a 
team, containing only three 
players from outside Kiev,

The tournament continues 
to be a grave embarrassment 
for the man who is expected to 
profit from it most, Amilio 
Escarraga, the owner of 
Televisa Mexicans, the host 
broadcasters. The service to 
the rest of the world continues 
to be near to disastrous. 

A Swiss newspaper claimed 
on its from page yesterday that 
Mexican pride had prevented 
their technicians accepting 
American and European assis- 
tance until after the inadequa- 
cies had become apparent and 
it was too late to make 
immediate effective improve- 
ments. Europeans do not ex- 
pect the service to get any 
better before the start of the 
second round. 

Many countries are con- 
tinuing to receive no com- 
mentary and there was fury in 
Brazil when their opening 
matt* with Spain was contin- 
ually interrupted by break- 
downs in transmission.

Broken leg Cavan defends referees 

Portugal of 

over ‘honest’ mistakes 

Monterrey (AP) — Manuel 
Bento, Portugal’s veteran cap- 
tain and goalkeeper, has frac- 
tured a bone in the lower part 
of his left leg during training 
and team doctors say be wilt be 
out of action for the rest of the 
World Cnp competition. The 
Benflca player, who has won a 
record 44 caps for his country, 
was training with die Portu- 
guese squad at the 
Universitario Stadium in prep- 
aration for today’s Group F 
match against Poland. 

Portugal made a fine start in 
the World Cnp last Tuesday, 
upsetting a highly-fancied En- 
gland 1-0. “Bento’s leg has 
been put into plaster and be 
will be immobilized for two 
weeks,” Aiigusto Camacho 
Viera, a doctor of the Portu- 
guese team, said. 

Vitor Manuel Damns. of 
Sporting Lisbon, who has 27 
caps, was expected to replace 
Bento against the Poles. Tor- 
res said be planned to an- 
nounce his line-up today. 
Portugal's other squad goal- 
keeper is Jorge Manuel Da 
Silva, aged 31. . 

Ironically, Bento received 
the injury while playing as a 
forward in a warm-up game at 
Universitario. He went np with 
a teammate for a high ball and 
turned his leg as be landed. 

Bento broke into tears as 
doctors gave him first-aid 
treatment ami Carlos Manuel, 
the midfield player who scored 
the winning goal against En- 
gland, tried to console him 
when he was placed on a 

Fernando Gooes, a forward, 
who will take over as captain, 
summed up what Bento's loss 
meant when he said: “A stupid 
incident deprived us of our 
captain and his experience. 
We are still confident to do 
well against Poland, although 
our morale is a bit shaken at 
the moment” 

One man stood ont from the 
rest as Poland trained under a 
blazing sun at the 
Universitario Stadium. Zbig- 
niew Boniek, the Italian-based 
forward with a head of red hair 
and a swagger on the ball, is 
the unrivalled star of the team, 
a man of arrogant individual- 
ity- in a squad dominated by 
discipline and uniformity . 

While Wlodzimierz 
Smolarek, a fellow forward, 
wore a tracksuit and most 
players wore T-shirts, Boniek, 
his shorts rolled up. and his 
shirt tucked into, bis waist- 
band, played bare-chested. 
His obvioas liking for a tittle 
freedom was expressed in 
every gesture. 

“We expected a difficult 
match against Morocco, as in 
any World Cnp match. But we 
will play; better and better each 
time we play," be said. “I 
believe a European team are 
certainly capable of winning 
the tournament this time.” 

Mexico City (AP) — The top 
FIFA authority on referees 
says coaches who publicly 
criticize the standard of offici- 
ating at the 1986 World Cup 
are out of order — but he 
admits mistakes are made in 
the heat of games. 

“I find it hard to understand 
how intelligent, experienced 
football people should try to 
victimize referees for making 
what I believe are honest 
decisions.” said Harry Cavan, 
the chairman of FIFA's refer- 
ees committee. 

“If a coach has an observa- 
tion to make about the ref he 
should not make it public. 
Sure, mistakes are made, but 
referees like everyone else 
have good days and bad 

With less than a week of the 
month-long, 52-match World 
Cup completed, the age-old 
complaint of unfair refereeing 
is an issue at the tournament. 
At post-match news confer- 
ences, coaches have tongue- 
lashed referees for malting 
decisions that have cost their 
teams vital points, while ban- 
ner headlines in Mexican 
newspapers have placed some 
referees in the spotlight for 
controversial decisions. 

When the Australian refer- 
ee, Chris Bambridge, disal- 
lowed a goal by Miguel 
Gonzalez, of Spain, against 
Brazil, television replays 
showed the ball hitting the 
crossbar and bouncing down 
inside the goal line. Brazil won 

had been robbed of az least a 

“I have only seen one 
picture of that incident and to 
me the ball was not corapiete- 
Ty over the line, which means 
it was not a goal” Cavan said. 
“But the referee does not have 
five or 10 television replays to 
refer to. By and large, evidence 
shows that in a great majority 
of cases, decisions are 

Another referee, Volker 
Roth, of West Germany, was

the following day said Spain 

Portugal won 1-0, but the 
following day, the lambasting 
of referees intensified after the 
games between Iraq and Para- 
guay and Uruguay and West 

Cavan said: “There is an 
argument that says if one 
country has three or four of 
the world’s best referees, we 
should use them ail at the 
World Cup instead of others. 
But FIFA has 158 member 
nations who determine the 
rules and regulations. It is a 

“When we produced the 
final list of appointments for 
this tournament, we were 
reasonably happy that we had 

made the best effort to ensure 
that all teams were given fair 
play.” he said; 

All 36 referees at the World 
Cup had to go through a two- 
day instruction course, Cavan 
said, to ensure consistency. 
But no amount of theory, he 
added, could compensate for 
what happened in the heat of 
the moment. 

“When a referee goes on to 
the field, he is on his own and 
often allows misconduct, 
which makes me sad. In the 
match between Northern Ire- 
land and Algeria, for instance. 
I was not entirely happy with 
the referee. 

“I saw one player trying to 
strike another, which in my 
book means a red card. It may 
be laudable to have asked 
them to shake hands but that 
does not contribute to strong 

Cavan said bis committee 
would be assessing the. perfor- 
mances of all referees and that 
those showing a lack of consis- 
tency would be dropped for 
the second phase of the tour- 
nament onwards. 

Merce Varela, a member of 
FIFA’s press committee, sup- 
ported Cavan's call for under- 
standing. Conceding there had 
been “major officiating 
mistakes” during the early 
part of the tournament, Varela 
said: “It would be much more 
serious to change a result after- 
a game just because television 
replays showed an error” 

Or, as Cavan summed up, 
“the referee is right — even 
when he's wrong.. 

Danes fear worst 

Queretaro (Reuter) — Sepp 1 
Piontek, the Danish coach, 
said yesterday that he feared 
Uruguay's tough style of play 
might provoke his players to 
retaliate when the sides meet 
in Group E tomorrow. 

Piontek, commenting on 
Thursday’s bruising 1-1 draw 
between Uruguay and West 
Germany in Group E, said: “If 
that match had been in- Den- 
mark, lhree Uruguayans 
would have been sent off We 
must expect Uruguay to try 
every trick in the book.” 

Piontek said he was particu- - 
larly worried that the South 
Americans would deliberately 

try to provoke Preben Elkjaer, 
the hot-tempered Danish for- 
ward. “We will have to play 
possession football because 
dribbling is no good," he said. 
“You may pass one man but 
the next will chop you down. I 
see retaliation as a' real 

Piontek also criticized the 
standard of refereeing in the 
World Cup so far. “The 
referees are too lax, they allow 
too much in too many 
games," he said. 

Denmark woo their first 
match by beating Scotland 1-0 
in NezehuecoyotL the venue 
of the game with Uruguay.

woo Rush 

Ian Rash, Liverpool's 
Welsh international forward, 
is expected to sign for 
Juventus next week for a 
British record fee of £3 mil- 
lion. The Italian dub will 
meet Rush and Liverpool 
officials early next week to 
clinch the deal. 

Rush, aged 24, who has 
scored 466 goals in 271 games 
for Liverpool- could still be 
playing at Anfield next season 
even if the transfer goes 
through. Italian sides are al- 
lowed two foreign players, and 
Juventus have ' their quota 
with Michael Laudrup, of 
Denmark, and Michel Platini, 
,of France. 

Italian clubs will seek to 
have the restriction rescinded 
next month but if it remains in 
force, as' seems likely, 
Juventus would loan Rush to 
Liverpool . for next season. 
Platini's contract expires at 
the end of next season, at 
which point Juventus would 
then take Rush..

1 am suffering from acute 
withdrawal symptoms , l oa't 
go os much tonga: without 
another shot of Ian Botham. 
The more the World Cap 
rumbles on, the snore boors I 
spend cheerfafiy, or some- 
times fariotsly. goggling the 
footy, the snore I miss the 
glorious Botiamesque attitude 
to sport 

at the telly (“weH, Brian, it’s 
all about results”). I have been 
refreshing myself with deep 
d raught* of a delightful book 
about Botham, fftgi. Wide 
and Handsome by Frank 
Keating*'. It has done me a 
power of good. Jonathan Ag- 
ue* is quoted: “It seems to us 
be has no nerves, no fear of 
failure. I remember one game 
when I bowled him two good 
length balls on the off stamp 
that be played defensively. 
The third bail was exactly the 
tnmg it disappeared over coin- 
er for four. I jut thought 'what 
can I do about that?' 

No Fear of Faff are. Would 
that the players in the World 
Cnp had something of the 
same spfriL The competition 
so for has been nothing other 
than a giant exhibition of an 
overwhelming fear of feitore. 
The packed defence, the expe- 
dient foul, the shared satisfee- 
tion is a tan® draw: millions of 
ns are st a y i ng up til ungodly 
hoars every night to watch tins 
sniffi millions of us are feeling 
more and more cheated. 

There may have been the 
odd good game, but we seem to 
keep missiag them. ITV se- 
lected lody-Aigentina, glee- 
fully promising us “X- 
certificate stuff”, and thus 
missed France-USSR which, I 
read, was a cracker. We have 
not seen a frill match with the 
Russians yet, and they seem to 
be one of the most exciting 
teams in the tournament. 

Not that there is modi 
competition for such an acco- 
lade. The attitude is wrong, 
and the format is wrong. 
League football tends to be 
boring, especially with a mere 
two points for a win. Fear is 
over-rewarded. The global 
millions swi tch on to have; 
their pubes sent racing, not to 
watch people pansying about ' 
for a (M) draw. 

What is the answer? Three 
points for a win? Straight 
knock-oat nil the way, with a 
pbte c ompetitio n for Brat, 
round losers? (Great idea: ; 
England would be ht with a • 
real shout). But an answer 
mast be found, for certainly, 
there Is an overwhelming 

We bare been going for * 
full week, and the competition 
bs yet to hot up. Hot up? It 
isn't even lukewarm. The 
World Cup needs an injection 
of gkny, just as the summer 
needs an injection of warmth. 
The next time I sit up for a 
match, I want something bet- 
ter than fear. I want the best 
possible attitude to sport- I 
want a fittie touch of Botham 
in tbe night.
