love of 

- By Geraldine Norman 

Mr John Paul Getty IL the 
quiet philanthropist who has 
given away £60 million over 
the last eighteen mouths, is to 
be created an Honorary 
Knight Commander of the 
Order of the British Empire, 
the Foreign Office announced 

Speaking to The Times from 
his new pied-a-terre off St 
James's, central London, Mr 
Getty said yesterday that be 
was “absolutely thrilled". 

He said: “I fell in love with 
Britain as a schoolboy reading 
British history and Shake- 
speare, and, of course, I came 
here often to visit my father. It 
was always the colour and 
panoply of British history that 
appealed tn me.” 

He has made Britain his 
home for the last 15 years. 

He is receiving the same 
honour as Bob Geldofr an- 
nounced earlier this week. The 
title is an “honorary" one 
since Mr Getty is American, 
not British. He cannot use the 
title “Sir", but the letters KBE 
will come after his name. 

Mr Getty is the third son of 
the late John Paul Getty L the 
oil billionaire who was reputed 
to be the richest man in the 
world. His income derives 
from various Getty family 
trusts and fluctuates widely. 

It has increased hugely 
since the sale of Getty oil to 
Texaco and this has led Mr 
Getty to take the business of 
giving money away really seri- 
ously. He said: “I like to 
support things that interest 
me, things that other people 
aren't going to be doing. I'm 
not giving to cancer research, 
for instance." 

The principal donations be 
has made over the last 18 
months include £30 million to 
the National Gallery, which is 
the first installment of a 
promised £50 million endow- 
ment to help the gallery buy 

He has given the British 
Film Institute £6 million for a 
new headquarters and the 
Maryiebdne Cricket Club £1 
miftwn for a new stand at 

His newly established char- 
itable trust has given £500,000 
for the restoration of Ely 
Cathedral on condition that 
there is no building on the 
beautiful paddock that belongs 
to the cathedral. He has 
supported the Union of Demo- 
cratic Mineworkers and the 
families of the striking miners. 

"I was sorry for the families 
who were innocent bystanders. 
I felt they ought to have 
something.*’ 1 

He also helped the working 
miners and his subsequent 
support of the new Union of 
Dmnocratic Miners was era- 
rial in getting the movement 
off the ground- But be said:

The proposed change is part

The court ruled In Miss 
Hannan's case that, although 
the documents were read out in 
open court- before their publi- 
cation, they were still consid- 

• ■& ' • / 

ered confidential. A majority 
of the House of Lords,- to 
which Miss Hannan ap-

proceedings. Miss Harman 
was a legal officer of the 
National Cooaril for Civil

against :tbe Home Office. 

Mbs Hannan took her case 
to Strasbourg, accusing the 
Government of interference 
With her freedom of expression 
and of dfecrirafnaticm. 

In the settlement agree- 
ment, announced in Stras- 
bourg yesterday, . the 
Government promised to seek 
a change In the contempt law 
- “so that it will no longer be 
contempt of court to make 
public material contained in 
documents compalsorfiy dis- 
closed in tivil proceedings, 

once those documents have 
been read ont in open court.” 

Counsel who have obtained 
confidential Government files 
in the proceedings under 
which documents are pro- 
duced, will be allowed to 
publish them once they have 
been read aloud in court. 

The rate of inflation fell to 
2.8 per cent in May. the first 
time it has been below 3 per 
cent since January. 1968. An- 
other drop is expected this 
month, before the rale stead- 
ies. Measured by another offi- 
cial index, the tax and price 
index,the rate of inflation was 
just 0-9 per cent last month, 
the lowest on record. 

This takes account of tax 
reductions and. according to 
the Treasury, means that an 
earnings rise oflcss than 1 per 
cent over the past 12 months 
would have been enough to 
maintain living standards. 
The actual rise in earnings, 
announced on Thursday, was 
7.5 per cent, after allowance 
for distortions. 

The index of retail prices 
last month was 386.0 (January 
1974 * 100) compared with 
385.3 in April, a rise of 0.2 per 
cent on the month. Cigarette 
prices increased because ofthe 
remaining effects of the Bud- 
get rise in duties, and there 
were higher prices for fresh 
vegetables, lamb and second- 
hand cars. 

There was a fall of 8.5p a 
gallon to 1 6 1 -5p in the average 
price of four star petrol, 
bringing the cumulative drop 
since May, 1985 to 4I.7p a 
gallon. Coal prices came down 
as a result of summer dis- 
counts and there was a 0.75 
point fall to 12 per cent in

markets wc must ensure that 
pay settlements come down in 
line with inflation.” 

However, an early reduc- 
tion in base rates looked 
unlikely yesterday, despite the 
fall in inflation, because the 
City remained concerned by 
Tuesday's announcement of a 
3 per cent jump in the money 

supply in May. 

A further drop in the infla- 
tion rate is expected this 
month, making the sixth con- 
secutive monthly fell. 

The one-point drop in mort- 
gage rates to II per cent, 
which took effect for most 
borrowers on June 1 . will have 
reduced the index of retail 
prices by 0.45 per cent, help- 
ing to push the inflation rate 
to around 2.5 per cent. 

mortgage rates. 

Mr Kenneth Clarke, the 
Paymaster-General and senior 
employment spokesman iu 
the Commons, said that the 
drop in inflation to 2.8 per 
cent was “great news for 
Britain’s economy." 

He added: “Low inflation 
provides the right climate for 
the creation of more new jobs. 
We now have a marvellous 
opportunity to keep up our 
economic recovery and we 
mustn't blow it by indulging 
in excessive pay increases or 
industrial disputes.” 

Mr John Caff, director of 
economic affairs at the Con- 
federation of British Industry, 
said : “If British firms are to

Association.Morigage ad-

than £3.1 billion. At the same 
time the societies promised a 
record £3.7 billion to mort- 
gage applicants. 

The societies* receipts from 
the public were down by more 
than a third. The BSA blamed 
the fall on the reduction in

10% rise for legal aid 
fees could end dispute 

By Frances Gibb, Legal Affairs Correspondent .. - 
A 10 per cent increase in are concluded satisfactorily. 

some legal aid fees could be 
part of a package to end the 
dispute between the Govern- 
ment and the legal profession. 

Government officials are 
drawing up proposals to go to 
the Loro Chancellor next week 
which is expected to include 
an immediate 2 per cent on 
lop of the 5 per cent routine 
uprating for legal aid work 
which look effect on April I. 

But it is believed that there 
is more money on the table, 
possibly another 3 per cent, if 
current talks to reform the 
profession's working practices 

The package, to be offered 
to the Bar and the Law 
Society, could also be 
strengthened by the inclusion 
of a promise for a new pay 
review body, which Lord 
Hailsham of St Marylebone 
indicated last week he would 
favour setting up to help 
“sweeten the atmosphere" in 
pay talks. 

If endorsed by the Lord 
Chancellor, the proposals will 
be put to negotiators for both 
branches of the profession 
within the next few days.

at Tory critics 
of his style 
of leadership 

By George Hill 

Mr Norman Tebbit spoke 
last night of his frustration at 
criticism from his colleagues. 

The Conservative Party 
chairman condemned fellow 
Tories who refused to see 
weaknesses in opponents. 

Mr Tebbit's speech in Luton 
Hoo. Bedfordshire, gave a hint 
of the tensions he has suffered 
in a period of recriminations 
over tactics and by-election 

"It has been a frustrating 
time for me as party chair- 
man. The press and public - 
indeed some in our own party 
- have been unwilling to see 
any good in anything we were 
doing - indeed, they wanted 
only to pick and scratch at any 
blemish to uirn it into a 
running sore," he said. 

“Even my robust defence of 
the Government and my mod- 
est and softly worded criti- 
cisms of our opponents were 
either condemned or 
ignored”. Mr Tebbit added 
with a note of irony. 

Some ofhis interventions in 
recent by-election campaigns 
have been felt by Tory sup- 
porters to have been combat- 
ive to the point of being 

Now the Government was 
“coming out of its rough 
patch, just as the other parties 
are heading into trouble them- 
selves. sometimes with a little 
friendly help from us”. “The 
Alliance, which could do no 
wrong, is being reassessed, not 
before time. 

“The rift between the two 
leaders and the two parties of 

the Alliance on nuclear issues 
has broken the spell of credi- 
bility and votere are seeing 
that the Alliance is not so 
much an end to Punch and 
Judy politics, it is Punch and 
Judy politics.” 

“It will increasingly be seen 
that the Alliance is not simply 
split on the nudear issue - it is 
criss-crossed with divisions. 

Indeed, its only refuge from 

division is confusion.’ 

Labour should not be un- 
derrated nor overrated either. 
Its backers, the trade 

unions, were pouring money 
to fi- 

and human resources 
nance a huge professional 
public relations campaign, he 

“Their friends in town halls 
are spending ratepayers mon- 
ey on political propaganda on 
an unprecedented scale.” 

As yet, the costs of his 
reforms to the Conservative 
Party machine were more 
apparent than the benefits, Mr 
Tebbit conceded. 

“We have not been idle. At 
central office much has been 
changing. The machine is 
being brought up to daternew 
initiatives, new organizations, 
new machinery and new peo- 
ple are coming in to strength- 
en and modernize the party. 

“But we in central office 
cannot succeed unles the Gov- 
ernment is successful. We can 
help to set out our record; we 
can do our bit to set the record 
straight But it is the Govern- 
ment which must regain the 
political initiative. And the 
Government is regaining it 

Local vote 
gains for 


By Hugh Clayton 

Liberals have gained the 
most seats in council by- 
elections held since the last 
general election three years 
ago. according to the latest 
survey in Local Government 

The figures showed that 
there had been a steady with- 
ering away of Conservative 
influence in councils, with the 

parry emergmg^over the peri- 

od with a net by-election loss 
of 211 seats. 

The Liberals scored a net 
gain of 167 seats, the SDP 77 
and Labour eight Mr Colin 
Railings and Mr Michael 
Thrasher, who compiled the 
survey at Plymouth Polytech- 
nic. said that the most recent 
figures confirmed a persistent 

It was that the two Alliance 
parties continued to score 
better in local authority by- 
elections than in principal 
council elections when voting 
took place for large numbers 
of seats. 

The trend was confirmed by 
the 38 by-clections held across 
the country since the main 
council elections early last 

In the 38 council by-eleo- 
tions in May the Liberals 
made five gains, the SDP two 
and the Conservatives and 
Labour one each. The Alliance 
also captured a scat on North 
Dorset District Council be- 
cause nobody volunteered to 
stand against its candidate. 

Elsewhere, there were sur- 
prisingly high turnouts in 
several" of the council elec- 
tions. The Conservatives lost 
six seats. Labour two and the 
Alliance none. 

SDP peer 

hoax letter 

By Our Political Staff 

A letter cr i tic izin g Dr Darid 
fly” in his recent 

Owen’s “folly” 
behaviour, and calling on him 
to step down as leader of the 
Social Democratic Party, has 
been denounced by its alleged 
author as a hoax. Lord Harris 
of Greenwich said of the letter 
published in The Guardian 
yesterday: “It is a forgery and 
1 have asked The Guardian to 
make this dear in a prominent 
position in tomorrow 
morning's newspaper.” The 
letter also called on Mr Roy 
Jenltins to lead the party into 
the next election, and for both 
Affiance Parties to “acknowl- 
edge David Steel as undisput- 
ed pr im* ministey - dgrigitwte ”- 

Loid Harris is understood 
to have no quarrel with the 
SDP leaderahip^nd his back- 
ground is associated with re- 
sistance to unilateralism. He 
was personal assistant to High 
GaitskeU at the time of the 
Labour Party's first convul- 
sions over nuclear policy. 

A former Labour junior 
minister and special assistant 
to Mr Jenkins for five years at 
the Home Office and the 
Treasury, he switched to the 
new party in 1981. 

Mr Peter Preston, editor of 
The Guardian, conceded yes- 
terday that his paper had been 
taken in. 

“The letter was typed on 
Reform Club note paper and in 
presentation was very much in 
tbe style of Lord Harris, who 
writes to us often. The signa- 
ture was a good attempt at 
forging his”,he said. 

Tbe paper did not check 
back with Lord Harris, Mr 
Preston added. He regretted 
the error, and apologized. 

Ridley call 
to relax 


rent curbs 


her War-man 

The ghost of Rachman, tbe 
landlord whose activities led 
to curbs on private rented 
housing, should be exorcized, 
Mr Nicholas Ridley, Secretary 
of Stale for the Environment, 
said yesterday. 

Speaking at the Institute of 
Housing conference at Brigh- 
ton, he called for a greatly 
increased role for private rent- 
ed accommodation to tackle 
housing problems. 

But he said that whatever 
reforms were adopted they 
should “ensure that the ghost 
of Rachman never reappears 
in people's imaginations, let 
alone in reality” 

Later Mr i&dley said that 
the issue of private rented 
houses should cease to be the 
focus of political capital and 
scare stories. 

He said: “It is time for 
people to drop their antipathy 
to the private rented sector.” 
In his speech, Mr Ridley 
pointed to the contrast be- 
tween the increase in owner 
occupation — now 64 per cent 
in England — and the decima- 
tion of the private rented 
sector, down from six million 
in 1945 to 1.5 million today. 

Mr Ridley said private en- 
terprise bad ~ 

effectively been 
excluded by the Rent Act 
But he argued that tbe 
private sector would help 
make people more mobile, 
and be hoped to see it become 
a free market simitar to that of 
private ownership. 

He said that if rents woe set 
at market levels and there 
were a large number of land- 
lords, both public and private, 
with a largi number of proper- 
ties, then competitive prices 
would emerge. 

Mr Ridley told the confer- 
ence: “Nobody is sorry to see 
the bad: of the slum landlords 
of the past But it has gone too 

“Good landlords have been 
withdrawing their properties 
from the market for three- 
quarters of a century, giving us 
the smallest and least satisfac- 
tory private rented sector in 
western Europe.” 

Controls in the Rent Ad 
had undoubtedly protected 
the short-term interests of 
existing tenants, but by 
putting pressure on the rented 
housing supply, they bad dam- 
aged the long-term interests of 

But Mr Ridley denied sug- 
gestions that be was consider- 
ing the abolition of rent 

Expressing concern about 
the predominance of local 
authorities in the rented sec- 

tor, owning some 75 per cent, 
aid: “I do not believe that 

he said: 
this near-monopoly position 
cad be in the best interests of 

“There is no doubt that a 
ibtic sector monopoly in 
lousing tends to make people 
excessively dependent on 
their landlords.”

Prince proposes rebuilding of Britain 

By Charles Knevftt 

Architecture Correspondent 

In a spirited attack on 
bureaucracy yesterday, the 
Prince of Wales called for 
people to sink their differences 
and “cut great swathes 
through the cats-cradles of red 
tape which choke this country 
from end to end.” 

He was speaking at the 
presentation of The 
Tintes/Roysd Institute of Brit- 
ish Architects’ Community 
Enterprise awards at the 
RIBA in London. 

Tbe Prince emphasized “the 
argent need for partnership 
between the public and private 
sector, between local politi- 
cians, community groups and 
non-public sources of finance 
where necessary” in the recon- 
struction of the conn try, from

He described stub develop- 
ment trusts as the “third 
force” which would nobflire 
public, private and voluntary 
sectors, indadiag business re- 
sources, and direct them where 
most needed by the

The Prince said be was 
“extremely toadied” by beam 
introduced as “oar patron and 
friend” by Mr Rod Hackney, 
chairman of the award 
scheme. Mr Hackney, an ar- 
chitect and an adviser to the 
Prince, was at tbe centre of 
aTdivided Britain” controver- 
sy last year. 

Nine awards and 11 
mentations were presented by 
the Prince. Mrs Jessica Doug- 
las-Home, widow of the late 
Charles Dooslas-Hoate, edi- 
tor of The Tones, joined die 
Prince in presenting the top 
award, in her husband's name, 

Mr Patrick Doherty, its 
driving force, received the 
greatest applause of the after- 
noon after he made an im- 
promptu speech saying -Chat 
politicians should learn to 
trust local communities to 
make decisions for them- 

The Prince said he admired 
the winners for achieving so 
much against enonnoas odds. 
Partnership was the key. 

“Why am I so interested in 
continuity enterprise or com- 
munity architecture? Some 
people may think, 1 suspect, 
that it is a passing fad or 
passing fashion.. Bnt I don't 
think it is,” die Prince said.

Labour rebels lose 

court challenge 

St Helen's North Constitu- 
ency Labour Party, 
Merseyside, lost a High Court 
challenge yesterday to 
itssuspension by the party's 
national executive pending an 

Tbe judge, Sjr Nicholas 

Browne-Wilkinson (Vice- 
Chancellor) said there were 
indications that irregularities 
had not come to an end. “It 
seems wholly reasonable that 
suspension should remain un- 
til an annual general meeting 
has been called which can be 
controlled and monitored by 
national officers of the Labour 

If the NEC acted reasonably 
the annual meeting could be 
called in the very near future, 
otherwise not until the au- 
tumn. There were no good 
reasons for any undue delay. 
The NEC had not acted 

unreasonably in suspending 
the constituency party, the 
judge said. 

Ihe constituency chairman, 
Mr Christopher Walsh, its 
secretary, Mr John Duncan 
and Mr Ronald Waugh, on 
beha|f of the members, had 
sued (he 30 members of the 
NEC including 1 . Mr Nefl 
Kinnock and Mr Roy 
Hattersley. They, sought an 
injunction preventing tbe 
NEC from treating a suspen- 
sion resolution of December 
18, 1985 as being valid and 
effective insofar as it referred 
to the St Helens parly. 

They also unsuccessfully 
sought to ban the NEC from 
treating the constituency offi- 
cers and committees as being 
suspended and from interfer-

Mr Rupert Murdoch, chair- 
man of News International 

said yesterday :"The so-called 
peaceful picketing has become 
more abusive and unpleasant 
following the rejection by the 
print unions of the company’s 
recent offer. This new legal

Legal aid

Continned from pagel ■ 

Under the binding timeta- 
ble agreed in the wake of the 
Bar’s victorious legal action 
against Loud Hailsham over 
criminal legal aid fees, talks 
between both sides bad to be 
completed by May 28 and the 
Lord Chancellor's proposals 
submitted by June 27. 

- Negotiations mud be com- 
pleted by July 16. 

Although the Bar is claim- 
ing a pay rise of as much as 40 
per cent and the Law Society 
some 25 per cent, a staggered 
pay rise amounting to a total 
of 10 per cent would not be 
unreasonable in the context of 
the whole public sector. 

Although it has made dear 
that it may sue Lord Hailsham 
again if he does not comply 
with his statutory duty to pay 
a ‘lair and reasonable” rate, it 
is equally concerned to change 
the pay negotiating 

The promise of a review 
body might therefore be a key 
factor -in the derision on 
whether to accept the 
Government's offer. 

This will be considered by 
the barristers' branch of the 
profession at a special meeting 
on July 26. 

Anger over tbe low rates of 
legal aid pay readied a pitch 
earlier this year when the Bar 
took Lord Hailsham to court 

Both brandies had submit- 
ted pay claims on the basis of 
independent surveys and 
complained that the Govern- 
ment had foiled to negotiate 
on these.

risk that it would encourage a

Mr Kaufman said that a

Drug abuse and addiction 
have risen dramatically in 
most countries, with an esti- 
mated 750,000 heroin addicts 
and 4.8 million cocaine abus- 
ers around the world, the 
World Health Organization 
said yesterday. 

The figures were based on 
official returns by countries to 
the United Nations and were, 
therefore, a conservative esti- 
mate of the real problem. 

Several areas of drug abuse 
were emphasized: 

• A modern drag wave which 
started in the 1960s in indus- 
trial countries' has spread 
around the world with “an 

.enormous increase” in the 
abuse of cannabis, stimulants, 
hallucinogens, heroin and 
cocaine; . . 

• A growth in multiple drug 
use. such as drugs used with 
alcohol, has resulted in an 
increase in deaths; 

• Traditional and cultural use 
. ‘of -.drags in. some, countries, 

such as - use- of raw opium, 

•_ cannabis and coca leaves, has 
been complicated by die avail- 
ability of other drags. 

The organization said that 
4.8 million cocaine rbuSers 
were reported,, mostly in in- 
dustrial nations;, 1.76 million 
opium'' abusers; mostly in 
West and South-east Asia and 
the western Pacific; 750,000 
heroin "addicts;" 2.3 million’ 
abusers of amphetamines and 
3.4 million abusers on barbi- 
turates, sedatives and 

Fairuz, the greatest female 
singing star of the Arab 
world, rehearsing for last 
night's performance at the 
Festival Hall hi London, 
which broke box office 
records with a 3.000-strong 
audience paying £140,000. 

Fairuz, described as the 
“son! of the Lebanon”, last 
sang in Britain eight years 
ago, attracting coucertgoers 
from as far away as Brazil. 

The demand to attend last 
night's concert, organized by 

the British Lebanese Associ- 
ation, was so great that £100 
tickets were repeated to be 
selling for £1,000. 

Born and educated in 
Beirut Fairuz is regarded 
throughout the Arab world as 
far more than just a singer 
wKh a distinctive vocal tim- 
bre. She is idolized by 
Lebanese who find in her 
music and songs ethical and 
nationalistic themes. 

She began her musical 
career as a chorus member of 

the Lebanese Radio Station. 

By the late 1950s, her talent 
became frilly acknowledged 
and she was met with 
unprecedented enthusiasm. 

During most of her singing 
career. Fairuz was part of a 
three-member team who in- 
cluded her former husband.

Her songs generally focus 
less on (he theme of un- 
req oiled love than most Arab 
songs. ;

A London education au- 
thority is advertising for pri- 
mary school teachers 
“regardless of the candidates' 
sexual orientation”. 

Ealing Borough Council 
placed an advertisement in the 
Church Times for six teachers 
for four Church of England 
primary schools. Ai the bot- 
tom. it proclaims that Ealing's 
new council welcomes appli- 
cations “regardless of sex. 
race, ethnic origin, sexual 
orientation, disability or re- 
sponsibility for dependants”. 

Mr Harry Greenway. Con- 
servative MP for Ealing 
North, said: “Parents are 
rightly concerned that their 
children will stand a chance of 
being taught by sexual 

He urged the Church Times 
yesterday to look more closely 
at its advertisements. 

“The antics of the loony left 
on Ealing council turn into 
tragedy and villainy if chil- 
dren stand the risk of being 
perverted as a result,” Mr 
Greenway said. 

Mr Richard Taprcll. adver- 
tising manager of the newspa- 
per. said it was considering 
asking the council to modify 
future advertisements. “A lot 
of these advertisements for 
teaching appointments come 
from official sources, and one 
lends to relax one's vigilance.” 
Ealing council said the foot- 
note to the advertisement was 
standard on all the council's 
job advertisements. 

Businessman sold smuggled gold, jury is told 

Kenneth Noye, who is ac- 
cused of disposing of gold 
stolen in the £26 million 
Brink's-Mat bullion robbery 
i in 1983. was described as “a 
rough type of businessman: 

! one of the old school,” by a 
' business associate yesterday. 

Mr Brian Reader said that, 
acting on behalf of others, he 
arranged to buy gold from Mr 
Noye for cash. 

He told a jury at the Central 
CriminaJ Court that none of 
the gold he was buying from 
.Mr Noye at the beginning of 

last year was stolen. 

“I laiew it was being smug- 
gled into this country, but it 
was coming from an Arab 
country.” Mr Reader said

Delay may 
free man 
on death 

A magistrate said yesterday 
he would free a man accused of 
murder if the prosecution did 
not complete its case within 
six days. 

Mr Eric Crtmtber issued 
the ultimatum at Horseferry 
Road Magistrates* Court cen- 
tral London, after Mr Walton 
Hornsby, for the defence, 
made a strong attack on the 
prosecution and urged the 
court to dismiss the charge 
against Brian Williamson, 
from Glasgow. 

Mr Hornsby said that Mr 
Williamson had been in custo- 
dy on remand for almost three 
months but the prosecution 
bad still not served the case 
papers on the defence. 

Mr Crowther said that he 
was reluctant to dismiss a 
murder charge “at this stage”, 
but added: “Unhappily, this 
court is being presented more 
and more often with the prob- 
lem of quite intolerable delays 
in charges which are some- 
times serious and sometimes 
less serious. 

“This one, of course, is the 
most serious charge of all, 
murder. The fact is the defen- 
dant was arrested as long ago 
as March 27 and very little 
real progress is being made by 
the prosecution.” 

Miss Samantha Powis, for 
the prosecution, was asking 
for a remand until July. 

She said that the case 
papers had been sent to the 
Director of Public Prosecu- 
tions last month but the 
department was still consider- 
ing them. 

Mr Crowther said; “The 
delay here is not entirely 
attributable to the new crown 
prosecution service, although 1 
think it is to a large measure.” 

Mr Williamson, aged 27, 
unemployed, of Seven Sisters 
Road, Tottenham, north Lon- 
don, is charged with murder- 
ing Richard Mercy, aged 36, a 
dentist, found dead at Eaton 
Place. Belgravia, London, on 
or before January 29, 1980.

Beautiful Britain; the 
greatest place on earth 

By a Staff Reporter 
American tourists were of- 
fered a week . in London for 
only a dollar more than titeair 
fare yesterday, as Mrs 
Thatcher dubbed Britain “the 
greatest place on earth for'* 
holiday”. It was, she said, 
beautiful, welcoming, and safe. 

She was speaking as British

Mrs Thatcher made her 
assertion as she opened a

the British Travel Association 
in partnership with British 
Rail mid American Express. 

; She said: “The centre will be a 
tremendous help to the many 
friends who come and visit us j

Tourism, she said, provided

12 million people buy blank audio tape 
in Britain. They are going to be asked to 
pay as much as another £12 million for the 
right to use it freely — via a Tape Levy. 

54% of the young buy blank tape — yet 
youth unemployment is now running at 
over 25%. 

Record companies are enjoying highest 
album sales since Beatles days — yet they 
have sucees sfully pres sured the government 
for the right to collect yet more money 
from all tape buyers. 

Visually handicapped people are heavy 
buyers of blank tapes - getting a rebate on 
the levy will be difficult for them. 

The music industry makes its millions 
mainly from the young - yet the proposed 
Tape Levy will hit them hardest. 

‘Heavy’ tape buyers buy 5 times as many 
records —yet the music industry wants even 
more money from its supporters. 

The vast majority of tape buyers record 
material on which they have already paid a 
copyright fee — the music industry wants 
them to pay twice. 

Many users do not record copyright 
material — yet the record and music com- 
panies will be getting the levy from them too. 

Tape is particularly important to the 
blind - yet they are bound to suffer cost or 
inconvenience, whilst the music industry 

the right to listen to it any number of 
times - yet the music industry is about to 
be granted a second payment for the same 
right. ' 

Even if you record your own voice, you 
will still have to pay the record companies 


Oppose the Tape Levy. Its a gift to the greedy.

Doctor finds drag link 
in prisoner’s death 

A' prisoner who died eight 
days after an escape attempt 
amid claims that - he was 
beaten up did not die from his 
injuries, a doctor toki an 
inquest at Exeter yesterday. 1 
Dr Steven Gordner said the 
death of Mark Hogg, aged 33, 
from Rotherhitire, east Lon- 
don, could have been finked 
with drug abuse. Traces of 
amphetamine were found hi 
his body, the jury was told. 

Dr Cordner said Hogg's 
injuries, cuts andbruises scat- 
tered over his face and body, 
were not the injuries of a 
sustained assault. • 

He said that Hogg died of a 
disease which affected his 
heart and kidneys. 'He ‘con- 
cluded: “Drug abuse is known 

to be associated with this type 
of kidney failure." 

■ ’ . it is not known when Hogg 
took the amphetamine which 
had not been prescribed. . 

. The doctor said that a post- 
mortem examination . could 
not reveal if Hogg had chroni- 
cally abused drugs but he said 
one "fix” would suffi- 
cient to cause the heart and 
kidney disease^ 

. Hogg died right days after 
escaping from a prison van 
while being transferred from 
Exeter jail to Wandsworth. 
His family claims that he was 
beaten by police and -prison 
officers. Hogg was serving 12 
years for armed robbery.

Crash experts check on 
Islay aircraft wreckage 

Crash investigators were 
yesterday checking the wreck- 
age of the Loganair Twin Otter 
aircraft which hit a hill on 
Islay off the west coast of 
Scotland on Thursday, killing 
the pilot 

Fourteen passengers and the 
co-ppol escaped without seri- 
ous injury. 

Mr Scott Grier, managing 
director of Loganair, visiting 
the injured in hospital on Islay 
yesterday, said- if had been a 
miracle that the passenger 
cabin of the aircraft had 
remained intact, avoiding 
greater injuries. 

It is thought that flight LC 
423 from Glasgow to Islay was 
making a final approach to the 

airfield from the Skipness| 
navigation beacon in Argyll. 

Mr Christopher Brooke, 
aged 30. the pilot, was under 
line supervision from his co- 
pilot, Mr David Isley, aged 54, 
a former RAF pilot with 
considerable experience of j 
landing at Islay. 

The weather was reported to 
be reasonable, but with mist

Bacteria is 
claimed to 
aid growth 
in animals 

By John Young 
Agriculture Correspondent 

The use of bacteria known 
as probiotics to reduce the 
effects of stress and promote 
growth in farm animals is 
attracting increasing interest 
in Britain. 

la spite of the popular 
impression that bacteria are 
harmful to health, most are, in 
fact, harmless and some may 
be beneficial. Many claims for 
the benefits of eating ferment- 
ed products containing live 
bacteria have been made in the 
past, indoding the prevention 
of gastro-intestinal problems. 
“Live" yoghurt, for example; 
is a popular health food. 

Modern fonniiq; methods 
tend to create stress in ani- 
mate, cansing excess stomach 
acidity and ailments sach as 
diarrhoea. In addition, the 
presence of harmful micro- 
organisms In the got impede 
healthy growth and weight 


The standard treatment 
consists of the routine prophy- 
lactic administering of antibi- 
otics in animal feed. Bnt there 
is growing concern about Its 
possible harmful effects on 
human health. 

Advocates of probiotics 
claim that they are equally 
effective in countering harmful 
microbes and carry no risk of 
undesirable side effects. 

The Ministry of Agriculture 
has agreed to their use as a 
feed ingredient bnt points ont 
that, at present, there is very 
little scientific evidence to 
support the claims of tbe 

In spite of the ministry’s 
reservations, experience in 
other coon tries has been en- 
couraging. In Japan a 
probiotic known as Toyocerin 
has been on sale for the past 
10 years; not only have tests 
shown impressive improve- 
ments in growth and weight 
gam, but it is fed to 70 per cent 
of all Japanese pigs, particu- 
larly daring the eight-week 
period prior to slanghter when 
the use of antibiotics is forbid- 

Toyocerin has recently been 
launched in tbe United King- 
dom. Commercial evaluation 
trials have prod need good 
results, and Forum Feeds, the 
marketing company, is plan- 
ning further tests with the

Sale Room Correspondent 

The scoffers who used to 
call Sir Alfred Munnings* 
sporting scenes old fashioned 
and unworthy of the twentieth 
century are being thoroughly 
shown up by the present price 
spiral for Munnings's work. 

Christie's set a new auction 
price record yesterday at 
£324,000 with a big hunting 
scene. Tbe previous high was 
$363,000 paid in America last 

The 6ft hunting scene of 
1920 depicts "John J. 
Moubray, Master of Fox 
Hounds, dismounted with his 
wife and two mounted figures 
and the Bedale hounds in a 
landscape”. The hounds sur- 
round the M astern in the fore- 
ground in doggy and loyal 
fashion while the mounted 
figure of his wife is etched 
against the winter sky making 
it a successful and evocative 

Other perennial favourites 
included Russell Flint and his 
part naked girls. “Janelle and 
the Volume of Treasures", a 
rather surprising combination 
of a naked girl and an enor- 
mous book on a bed scored 
£21.600 (estimate £5,000- 
£7,000). Dame Laura Knight's 
“A grey day at Epsom” was 
another success at £23.760 
(estimate £5,000-£8.000). The 
traditionalist paintings made 
£1.1 million with 18 per cent 
left unsold. 

Epstein was the star turn of 
the separate sale of modernist 
British art with his bronze 
head of Winston Churchill 
selling at £14,040 (estimate 
£7.000-£9,000), Albert Ein- 
stein at £8.640 (estimate 
£5,000-£7.000). Bertrand Rus- 
sell at £5.1840 (estimate 
£3,000-£5,000) and Willaim 
Somerset Maugham at £4,320 
(estimate £3.000-£5,000). an 
interesting reflection on the 
scale of fame. 

Sotheby's sale of nineteenth 
century decorative arts yester- 
day morning totalled £5 1 3.8 10 
with 27 percent unsold A pair 
of large lapis lazuli and gill 
bronze columns made £88.000 
(estimate £40.000-£60,000). 
The morning sale of Japanese 
works of art totalled £225,852 
with a lacquer shrine of 
around 1600 at £46.200 (esti- 
mate £ 10. 000-£ 15.000).

South Africa in crisis • ‘Scenario of catastrophe’ • UK trade feare^ • Washington’s appeal 

From Michael Hornsby, Johannesburg 

One of the effects of South 
Africa's national stale of 
emergency may be to give ns 
Often-derided Parliament an 
importance it has not enjoyed 
fora longtime. 

One of the few civfl liberties 
not curtailed try the state of 
emergency is parliamentary 
privilege. This means that 
statements and information 
prohibited from being report- 
ed independently in newspa- 
pers .may be reported only 
after first being aired in 

This was the main loophole 
exploited by the press in i960, 
the last occasion when a state 
of emergency of this scope was 
imposed — in the wake of the 
Sharpeville killings, which 
provoked widespread riots 
and demonstrations. 

The curbs on the news 
media, which apply to both 
local and foreign journalists, 
are far more sweeping than 
those imposed during the 
partial state of emergency in. 
force from July 21 of last year 
to March 7 of this year. 

One of the hey iiew ele- 
ments' is the concept of a ’ 
“subversive statement". It is 
an offence not only to make 
such a statement but also to 
report it in any form. The 
penalty for any violation of 
the emergency regulations is a 
fine of 20,000 rand (about 
£5,000) or 10 years' imprison- 
ment. or imprisonment with- 
out the option of a fine. 

Any statement that would 
“have the effect of promoting 
any object" of an. outlawed 
organization, such as the Afri- 
can National Congress Or the 
South African .Communist 
Party, falls within the defini- 
tion." of "subversive 

It is also ton offence to 
publish any statement inciting 
people to take part in unlawful 
strikes, boycotts, demonstra- 

tions. gatherings or proces- 
sions. and acts of civil 
disobedience or “to discredit 
or undermine the .system of 
compulsoiy military service". 

Statements “encouraging or 
promoting disinvestment or 
the application of sanctions or 
foreign action against" South 
Africa are also prohibited. 

The. ban on all filming or ' 
sound recording of unrest is. 
the same as that' imposed 
during the last state of emer- 
gency. except that it now 
applies throughout the whole 
■country instead of only in 
specific areas. 

The definition of “unrest" 
is very wide. It covers "any 
public disturbance, disorder, 
riot. public violence, strike or 
boycott or any damaging of 
any property, or any assault 
on or killing of a person", as 
well as any counter-action 
taken by the police or Army. 

Another section of the 
emereency regulations gives 
the Commissioner of Police ' 
the power, to issue orders for 
“the control, regulation or 
prohibition of the announce- 
ment dissemination, distribu- 
tion. taking or sending of any 
comment on- or news" about 
action taken by the Army and 
police to maintain, public 

The commissioner-can also 
issue orders prohibiting jour- . 
nalists from entering any par- 
ticular area. This power is 
extended to the police on the 
ground, but in fact was some- 
thing they were doing already. 

A further offence under the 
emergency is the publication 
of the names -of persons 
detained without the permis- 
sion of the_auihoriU£s,_ _ ■' 

There will be no further 
daily bulletins of unrest and 
death and injury tallies from 
the police, nor any regular 
release by them of the names 
of detainees. 

All information about the 
emergency will be channelled 
through a special office set up 
by the Bureau for Information, 
in Pretoria under Mr Louis. 
Nel. the Deputy Minister of 
Information.-- - 

“We are going to have to be 
very careful." said Mr Antho- 
ny Heard, the editor of the 
Cape Times. “To try and buck- 
naked power wten you 
haven't got access to the 
courts is veiy silly. One of the 
powers the Government now 
has is to dose down a newspa- - 
per summarily. We will do our 
best to operate within the 

The staff of the Cape Times 
is among the most courageous 
hi- South Africa's newspaper 
industry. Mr, Heard- is still 
awaiting trial for-having pub- 
lished some months 'ago an 
interview with Mr -Oliver^ 
Tambo of the ANG whom it 
is illegal to quote in South 

Mr Heard said he had 
regretfully withheld from 
yesterday's edition an excel- 
lent photograph taken outside 
Parliament of police breaking 
up a demonstration of about 
70 black women refugees from - 
. the fighting in the Crossroads 
squatter camp. “Normally, it 
would have bam on the front 

What is not dear from the 
emergency regulations is die 
extent to which criticism of 
the Government and the 
emergency per se will be 
interpreted as “subversive" 
Most newspapers yesterday 
carried highly critical leading 

The Johannesburg Weekly 
Mail ■ announced yesterday 
that police were seizing its 
copies from all selling points. 
Earlier the paper reported that 
the police had tried to stop it

From Michael Binyort 

President Reagan yesterday 
appealed to blacks and whites 
in South Africa to exercise 
“maxim am restraint" before 
Monday's anniversary of the 
Soweto riots. He said Ameri- 
can . hearts were with the 
people of South Africa, during 
this time of trauma. 

In a written statement he' 
said; “I want to address myself

to urge that they consider

‘Walking towards civil war’ 

The European Commission 
yesterday accused foe South 
African Government of pro- 
voking bloodshed and “walk- 
ing towards civil war with its. 
eyes open" and said EEC 
sanctions were,- a- necessary 
last resort. In a powerful 
message delivered to the Euro- 
pean" Parliament at 'Stras- 
bourg* the Commission said- 
Pretoria appeared to .have 
chosen a scenario .of 4atas-~ 


“Not only is Pretoria doing 
nothing to avert civil war and 
carnage, all its actions are 
calculated to provoke it," the 
Commission said. The Com- 
mission's blunt condemnation 
of the state of emergency and 
arrests of anti-apartheid activ- 
ists will further intensify pres- 
sure for tough sanctions 
against Sooth Africa on Mon- 

From Richard Owen, Brussels 

day, when EEC Foreign Min- 
isters meet ui Luxembourg. 

Diplomats said, that Britain,. 
France and West Germany re- 
mained -opposed -to :fnlt. cbitih ' 
prehensive sanctions, and the 
Commission said any decision 
- to take new measures against 
Pretoria was a matter for the ' 
Foreign Ministers. 

But the EECdedaration of' 
last September aud ios- adop- 
tion of limited : sanctions have 
been a dear warning to Pre-= * 
toria that further and tougher 
measures were m the offing if 
it did not heed European 
opinion. The Commission had 
no sympathy for die weapon of 
economic sanctions, but pro- 
gressive sanctions were the 
last resort to make Pretoria 
see reason and avoid- 

This had been made dear by 

the Comm on wealth- Eminent 
Persons' Group - and by -Mr 
Willy de Ctercq, the EEC Ex- 
ternal RefoticrosComraissiGa- 
ef, - 

' ; Yesterday's speech should 
have been made in the conse 
of a debate <m South Africa at 
the European Parfiameat.‘'But 
right-of-centre parties- —-in-, 
rinding British Conservative' 
MEPb -^engnttemd. a post- 
ponement of the debate, which 
they feared might end witb a 
vote til favour : of sanctions. ' 

The Commission said its 
grave concern about the im- 
pact of South Africa's aggres- 
sion against its black African 
neighbours on the Common- 
wealth's attempts to mediate 
had been borne out. “These 
mediation efforts, which to a 
degree constituted our last 
hope, have been torpedoed." 

OAU will 
aid armed 

Addis Ababa (Reuter) — 
The Organization of African, 
Unity yesterday called on its 
member states to give South 
. African blades military sup- 
port against the Government 
in Pretoria. 

"This is the time for all 
Africa to launch material, 
military and moral support 
behind the oppressed blacks of 
South Africa. This is the time 
for the international commu- 
nity to act vigorously against 
this repulsive regime, a state- 
ment from the OAU said. 

Plea from air 

Port -Elizabeth (AFP) — A 
South African security force 
aircraft circled black town- 
ships here, relaying the mes- 
sage "Let's forgive each 
other*', residents said. The 
amplified recording also 
quoted the Bible.

Nine killed 

Windhoek, Namibia (Reu-

troops killed nine black na-

of skirmishes in Namibia in 
the past week, tbe territory 
force commander, Major- 
General George Meuing, said. 

British business will be hit 
hardest if sanctions come 

By Jeremy Warner, Business Correspondent 

For Lord Barber, a bitter 
.irony of his position as . a 
member of the Common- 
wealth Eminent Persons 
Group is that the bank of 
winch be is chairman. Stan- 
dard Chartered, has a great 
deal more than most to lose if 
the EPCs call for an early 
imposition of tough sanctions 
on South Africa is heeded. 

Standard Chartered still has 
extensive interests in South 
Africa, despite attempts in 
recent years to reduce its 
exposure to the country's 
growing unrest. 

Roughly 12 per cent of 
Standard's 1 985 profits of 
£268 million came from South .. 
Africa, and a similar propor- 
tion of its global assets or £28 
billion is represented by its 39 
per cent interest in Stanbic, 
one of South Africa's largest 

Standard's investment in 
South Africa is just the tip of a 
£12 billion iceberg of British 
business interests in the coun- 

While a large number of 
British companies have sold 
out of Soilfe Africa in recent 
years — those lucky enough - to 
have got out indude Associat- 
ed British Foods, Reed Inter- , 
national, - Valor, McAlpine, * 
Smiths Industries, Prudential 
Insurance. Metal Box and 
DRG - most have fell unable 
to divest at a reasonable price. 

• Britain remains, by for the 
largest foreign iitY^wrin the 
counuy and will without 
doubt be more severely affect- 
ed than any other nation by 
the imposition of sanctions. 
Some 10 per cent of all direct 
investment overseas by Brit- 
ain is in South Africa. 

Most of this oigmally 
fanned out from development

Judge finds no reason for detention 

Harare officers 
finally released 

From Jan Raath, Harare 

Two former Zimbabwe 
Army officers arrested in eariy 

1982 on allegations of plotting 
to overthrow the Government 
have beecn released on the 
orders of the High Court, 
lawyers confirmed yesterday. 

Mr Nicholas Nkomo and 
MrTshaka Moyo were tried in 

1983 with the former deputy 
commander. Lookout Masu- 
ku. who died in April soon 
after being released from de- 
tention. and Mr Dumiso Dab- 
engwa, the head of military 
intelligence for Zipra. the 
guerrilla wing of Mr Joshua 
Nkomo's Zapu party. 

They were acquitted of 
charges of treason and ofbeing 
involved in the storing of 
tonnes of military equipment, 
but were immediately detain- 
ed again. 

The Detention Review Tri- 
bunal had twice recommend- 
ed the release of Mr Nkomo 
and Mr Moyo. on the grounds 
it considered them no threat 
to national security. The Gov- 
ernment. however, set a pre- 
cedent in the country's 20- 
year-old state of emergency 
laws by refusing ro free them. 

Last week Judge Fergus 
Blackie. after hearing that the 
tribunal had again recom- 
mended that they be freed, 
agreed that there was no 
reason to hold them. 

Sources yesterday said they 
travelled to their former unit 
in Masvingo. in southern 
Zimbabwe, to hand in their 
commissions and uniforms af- 
ter being released last Friday 

Mr Dabengwa, dubbed “the 
black Russian" for his links 
with the KGB, is still in the 
maximum-security section of 
Chikurubi prison outside Har- 

• Cnstoms men still held: 
Zimbabwe’s High Court yes- 
terday quashed detention or- 
ders today against two senior 
white customs officers held on 
allegations of spying for South 
Africa (Reuter reports). But 
soon after Judge Fergus 
Blackie delivered his verdict, 
slate counsel Stephen Mafara 
lodged an appeal effectively 
blocking their release. 

John A 1151 m. 36, and 

Kenneth Harper. 43. are ac- 
cused of having supplied Pre- 
toria with information that 
enabled it to attack African 
National Congress (ANC) tar- 
gets in Zimbabwe last month. 

Home Affairs Minister 
Enos Nkala. in an affidavit 
read on his behalf, said the 
men were a threat to 
Zimbabwe's security and had 
to remain detained. - -

Senate aid offer to Ireland 

Fran Michael Binyon, Washington 

A Senate committee has 
voted to give $20 million (£13 
million) in aid to Ireland over 
the next two years in recogni- 
tion of the Anglo-Irish Agree- 
ment. despite the breakdown 
of the Northern Ireland 

The vote on Thursday by 
the Senate foreign relations 
committee came as the com- 
mittee. after a delay of almost 
a year, passed a compromise 
version. of the US-British ex- 
tradition treaty. 

The outcome has been 
warmly welcomed by the Brit- 

ish Embassy here, despite 
reservations both in Britain 
and m tbe Administration on 
concessions made to the Dem- 
ocrats who strongly opposed 
any infringement of the US 
tradition of political haven. 

These included the drop- 
ping of conspiracy and the 
possession of firearms from 
the list of crimes for which the 
political argument against ex- 
tradition could not be used. 

Three De. ocrats, while un- 
able to' amend the actual 
treaty, also succeeded in hav- 
ing language included in the 
commniee s report that would 

allow US judges reviewing 
extradition requests to consid- 
er whether a person would 
receive a fair trial in Northern 

The lengthy debate before 
the vote was marked by angry 
outbursts -from some Demo- 
crats of Irish descent who 
resented suggestions that foe 
US owed Britain the treaty in 
return for support on Libya. 

Senator Joseph Biden of 
Delaware, a leading opponent 
of t|ie treaty and a possible 
presidential contender, called 
such linkage “tripe”.

Key defendant missing

fee principal accused absent 
from fee courtroom. 

The report by investigators

originally to sail the Achille -

The plan faded because the 
Syrians refused to allow- fee

Malag a 

Spain's ruling -Socialists 
have been galvanized by this 
month's general elections, 
with polling on Jane 22, to 
indulge in a fresh sport of 
activity over land reform In the 
south in a bid to rally left-wing 


But in both Andalusia and 
Extremadura now —-in con- 
trast to the scene 50 years ago, 
after the outbreak of the Cml 
War, with large-scale' land 
grabbing by hungry' agrfcal-' 
tural labourers led by Social- 
ists or Anarchists,' all of which 
proved short-lived — the So-' 
dalists are proceeding with 

marked moderation, so as not 
to alienate middle-class, urban 
. voters. 

In Andalusia, the land ques- 
tion is still of perhaps crucial 

^notional importance and the 

Socialists, who also nut the 
region's autonomous govern- 
ment, are up for re-election. 

In Extremadura, the Social- 
ists look more vulnerable to 
the charge of electioneering. 
Having taken three years to 
get a land reform law on the 
statute books, they have sud- 
denly announced the ftfrfag 
over of three estates amount- 
ing to 9,600 acres, most of it 
made up of a single estate 
owned by a noblewoman which 

card in southern Spain 

employs a total of five 

In Andalusia the regional 
government, which has been 
fighting for two years to get its 
own land reform programme 
going, only to beheld up each 
time the big landowners go to 

the courts, has jest announced 

It will take over 4,200 acres, 
some of it owned by a Spanish 
duke, to bring twice that 
amount of land under irri- 

In theory, the Andalusian 
government's land reform law 
of 1984 is socially the most 
important demonstration of 
the region's home rule. But its 
application has brought onlya 

legal battle still to be settled in 
Spain's Supreme Court. 

This is despite the fact that 
both the Andalusian and 
Extremadnran laws seek by a 
system of tax penalties to 
oblige landowners to cultivate 
their estates property. 

The estates affected win be 
taken over compulsorily for a 
period limited to a maximum 
12 years and brought into 
proper production, but with 
the owner's right te the prop- 
erty guaranteed. 

Seftor Felipe Gonzalez, the 
Spanish Prime Minister and 
an Andalusian, opening die 
Socialist Party's election cam- 
paign here, invoked the les- 

sons of the Ova War for the 
left He did so by justifying 
what he called the “historical- 
ly apt pace" with which his 
Government is implementing 
its programme. 

This Socialist caution, al- 
ways mindful of centre voters, 
has been seized on by the 
Communists ia Andalusia, 
who are making the lack of 
progress over land reform one 
of their principal vote- 

There are about half a 
million day labourers on the 
land in Andalusia, who can get 
work only for part of the year, 
though nowadays they do re- 
ceive puhlzc assistance. 

The Communists are field- 
tag, as their candidate for the 
region’s chief minister, Sehor 
Julio Asgufra, known as the 
"Red Caliph" because be has 
proved an efficient and popu- 
lar mayor of Cordoba, Spain's 
biggest city with a Communist 
in charge. 

The Communists are hoping 
many of those in rural areas 
who voted Socialist In 1982 
wfl) hack them this time. Bat 
in the last Parliament in 
SevUBe, the Socialists had 66 
of the 109 seats and the 
Communists only eight. It was 
Andalusia which prod need a 
massive “yes" in the Nato 
referendum last March.

Secretary General, cast his 
usual diplomatic discretion 
aside to blame the Greek Cyp- 
riot community for obstruct- 
ing his attempts - at a nego- 
tiated solution to' the Cyprus 
dispute and warned that the 
diplomatic vacuum on the 
divided island could ignite 
into conflict.' 

At the same time the seven 
countries which contribute 
troops to the United Nations 
peacekeeping force in Cyprus 
(UNFTCYP) issued a thinly 
veiled ultimatum to the Greek 
Cypriots to . either quickly 
seize the fleeting opportunity 
for a settlement offered in the 
form' of the UN plan or run 
the risk of seeing the force 
withdraw in exasperation. 

Noting that the force had 
kept the peace on Cyprus for 
22 years, the contributors said 
there should not be a tendency ' 
to take its existence for grant-

-Throughout the entire UN 
exercise, the Greek Cypriots 
and the Turkish Cypriots have 
taken great cafe to map out 
their strategies in a way that 
would ensure international 
sympathy. Diplomats say the 
reluctance of either side to be 
blamed for a breakdown has 
been the lifeblood of the talks. 
Indeed, President Kyprianou 
bad been careful to offer 
alternatives to the UN plan — 
such as an international con- 
ference — rather than refect it 

But diplomats said the 
Turkish Cypriots mastered the 
game better than their coun- 
terparts and were now in a po- 
rtion to reap all the benefits 
that come with being the cod- 
cDiatory party. 

President Kyprianou has 
refused to commit himself to 
the Secretary General's blue- 
print on the grounds that it 
does not attempt to resolve 
fmmediaiely the four points of j 
contention between the Greek 
Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot 
communities. These deal with 
the withdrawal of some 17,000 
Turkish troops on the island, 
the provision of suitable inter- 
national guarantees of a settle- ] 
ment and the three "basic free- 
doms” of movement, work 
and settlement .

The number of Aids victims 
in the US will increase more 
than tenfold in the next five 
years, with a cumulative total 
of 270.000 cases by 1991 and 

179.000 deaths. By then 

54.000 people will die each 
year as a result of the disease - 
more than the number killed 
on American roads. 

This stark prediction was 
given by federal health offi- 
cials, who said the cost of 
treating Aids patients would 
rise to SI 6 billion (£10 billion) 
a year by 1991. The incurable 
disease would spread rapidly 
beyond New York, San Fran- 
cisco and the big cities, where 
it is now concentrated, and 
would increasingly affect 

Dr Donald MacDonald, the 
acting Assistant Secretary of 
Health and Human Services, 
said (he forecast was "stag- 
gering" and "devastating". 

Health officials estimate 
that up to 1,500.000 Ameri- 
cans are already infected by 
the Aids virus and are poten- 
tial carriers. Of that number, 
they said, 20 to 30 per cent 
would develop the disease 
over the next five years. Aids 
will become one of the na- 
tion’s top killers, ahead of an- 
nual deaths from pneumonia 
and influenza, car accidents, 
diabetes, suicide, liyerdisease 
and hardening of the arteries. 

The officials said their fig- 
ures were probably too low. as 
many doctors are not report- 
ing Aids as a cause of death. 
They said that; despite inten- 
sive research, no vaccine or 
cure for the disease was likely 
to be available within the next 
five years. 

A total of 21,517 people 
have contracted Aids, of 
whom 1 1,713 have died since 
the disease was recognized in 
June 1981.

Appeal for 
truce to 
save Sudan 

From Gill Lusk 

Sudanese churches and 
overseas aid agencies have 
launched an urgent appeal for 
a "food trace" in the country’s 
war-torn south. 

A statement signed hr 
Britain's Oxfam, Mededns 
Sans Frontteres of France, the 
United Nations World Food 
Programme, Unkcf, and seven 
Sudanese cfanrch bodies on 
Wednesday read: "Only 
through the cessation of hos- 
tilities will it be possible for ns 
to launch a food distribution 
programme to help alleviate ! 
the appalling snffering of peo- 
ple in the war-affected areas". 

'Between two and three mil- 
lion people in the south "are 
focing foe imminent threat of 
starvation". Hundreds of 
thousands of displaced south- 
erners who sought refuge in 
the main towns are now des- 
perately short of food, particu- 
larly (hose in the major town 
of Juba. Supplies to there have 
been virtually art off by almost 
daily attacks on foe lifeline 
roads from Uganda and 

"Juba is in a state of 
collapse," Mr Mark DuffieH,- 
Oxfam’s Sudan representa- 
tive, said. 

Mr Dnffiekl said mahmtri- 
tion rates for children between 
one and five years were worse 
than those recorded at foe 
height of northern Sudan's 
famine last year. 

In ■ A weft, a town at the 
centre of conflict in the Bohr 
El Ghazal administrative area 
in foe north of the so nth, 35 
per cent of children in that age 
group weigh less than 80 per

Although some tentative 
progress has been made in 
negotiations between the rebel

office last month, fighting has 
also escalated with foe SPLM

The situation has been fur- 
ther complicated by the Gov- 
ernment arming what are 
officially called "friendly

year-long transitional govern- 

Traditional tribal rivalries

He drew against Britain's 
Tony Miles in a Queen’s

$6,000 (£3,800) prize in foe 
biggest grandmasters' tourna- 
ment in chess history. It was 
foe 64th victory of Karpov’s 

"It was an historic tourna-

"It was my last test before 
the matches in London and

flying to Moscow to continue

countries often fail to report

In all countries, suicide

rise sharply with age. Is 

France, for example, the sui-

according to age is: Under 15,

38; and, over 65, 62. 

Although 85 per cent of 
French people claim to be 
happy, according to a Sofres 
poll taken in October 1985, 
they are nevertheless the 
world's largest consumers of 

both tranquilizers and alcohol. 
Another recent poll showed 
that a staggering 37 per cent of 
the French said they suffered 
from constant anxiety, and a 
further 57 per cent said they 
were frequently anxious. 

Sales of tranquilizers in 
France have rocketed over the 
past 15 years, overtaking aspi- 
rin as the most prescribed 

pharmaceutical product. In 
1984, anti-anxiety drags were 
being prescribed in France at & 
rate of 49 for every 100 peofrie,

The crucial issue today is bow to give 
people more pride in their environment, 
involvement in their housing and more 
control over their lives, all this leading 
to increased confidence and hope, a 
development of new organizational 
skills and a consequent flourishing of 
new enterprise. We are talking about the 
regeneration of thousands of local 
communities, and this is the really 
essential point about the whole thing. 
How can we achieve such an aim while 
ensuring that it isn't just pie ip the sky? 

Reviving urban areas means creating 
self-sustaining communities. That re- 
quires carefully integrated action on a 
number of fronts. In particular four 
important changes are required: 

First, those involved in assisting 
community initiatives, really must try 
and stop feuding and recognize that a 
multiple approach is called for. 

Second, sufficient resources must be 
made available to help people turn their 
ideas into viable schemes. This requires 
managerial and financial as well as 
building skills and there is now un- 

doubtedly a. lot of experience to call on 
which , may perhaps justify training 
courses for social entrepreneurs and 
increased support for technical aid 

Third, we need to find ways if we can 
of channelling private resources into the 
rundown areas without displacing .the 
existing community. There is a need as 
well to release, the large amount of under 
utilised derelict or surplus land for 

how much under utilised surplus land 
there is in the London area for instance. 
Something in the region of 100,000 acres 
of land is registered with the Depart- 
ment of the Environment as surplus to 
requirements in the 32 London bor- 
oughs. If released, that could, I would 
have thought help to start all sorts of 
new schemes, both commercial and

from being either negative or doing 
everything themselves to act as enablers 
and facilitators. So initiatives, to be

Flat earth to flashpoint 

I n 1897-98, during his single- 
handed circumnavigation of 
the globe, Captain Joshua 
Slocum visited South Africa 
and travelled by train to Pretoria, 
where he met President Kruger. 
“His Excellency received me cor- 
dially enough; but my friend Judge 
Beyers... by mentioning that I 
was on a voyage around the world, 
unwittingly gave great offence to 
the venerable statesman, which we 
both regretted deeply. Mr Kruger 
corrected the judge rather sharply, 
reminding him that the world is 


“ ‘You don't mean round the 
world', said the president ‘It is 
impossible! You mean in the 
world. Impossible!’ he said, 
TmpossflrieT. And not another 
word did he utter either to the 
judge or to me.” 

Even in those days Afrikaners 
tended to iak&. an imhthiQMWa 
view of the world. But to judge 
from this incident, they were not 
yet afraid to share their un- 
fashionable views with foreign

. In place of innocent inquiries, 
Afrikaners now adopt an al- 
together more wary, not to say 
hostile attitude towards outsiders. 
This is not surprising, considering 
the foot that outsiders probably 
devote more time to criticizing 
South Africa than any other 
country. And the Afrikaners have 
particular reason to be suspicious 
of the British. To select two facts 
almost at random, 26,000 Boer 
women and children died in 
British concentration camps dur- 
ing the Boer War, and Lord 
Milner, British High Commis- 
sioner for South Africa, said his 
aim was “to knock the bottom out 
of the great Afrikaner nation for 
ever and ever. Amen”. 

Although old-style Afrikaners 
are keen enough to have nothing 
to do with the British, it cannot be 
agreeable to be quite so without 
friends among other nations. The 
Chamber of Mines, my hosts for 
part of my visit, invited me to dine 
one evening in Gold Reef City, a 
curious, reproduction- 1 890s tour- 
ist development. In the 
President's Room, which is re- 
served for the Chamber’s own use, 
stands a bar. Behind the bar is a 
cabinet, on which two ornaments 
have been placed. One was pre- 
sented by the Taiwanese govern- 
ment, the other by the Chilean 
Chamber of Mines. 

But when I remarked on this to 
an Afrikaner, meaning that it 
illustrated the painfol extent of 
South Africa's international isola- 
tion. he did not quite take my 
point “Yes” he said, “we enjoy 
excellent relations with Taiwan. 

The most vivid c on ver sati on I 
beard about votes for blacks was 
between an English girl, visiting 
South Africa for the first time, as I 
was, and a woman of German 
origin who bad lived most of her 
adult life there.“Why should they 
have the vote?” the German lady 
demanded. “What have they done 
to earn the vote? They have 
contributed nothing." 

“They contribute their labour” 
“Labour! What is labour with- 
out skin and capital? Nothing.” 

“Well they're people, and peo- 
ple are people;” 

“People are not people-” 

Soon after she had delivered 
this retort, the German began to 
discuss “the genetic factor”, but a 
South African shut her up. 

G old mine managers like 
to show visitors how 
well their migrant blade 
workers live. I was one 
of a party taken to see some 
hostels for migrant workers. There 
were only four beds in each 
room.“When 1 was in the army, 
the accommodation was a hell of a 
sight worse than this”, the English 
•PR man who was accompanying 
us declared. “We had 22 m a 
barrack room.” . 

Someone asked what the older 
accommodation was like. We were 
shown to a room with bunks for 16 
workers.“When I joined the 
goldmining industry”, I beard the 
PR man say (he had previously 
worked in the PR department a 
mining bouse in Zambia), “there 
were 24 to a room.” 

Our hosts; the mine managers, 
said we should look wherever we 
liked. We went river to another 
hut, by no means spacious, in 
which someone counted 37 
bunks.“It’s not what we call ideal 
conditions", one of the managers 
said. “We’re not proud of it” 
“This is not very nice at all", I 
heard the PR man say faintly. 

Another South African public 
relations exercise had gone wrong. 
Onr hosts were not adopting 
Soviet tactics, and concealing or 
denying every unfavourable fea- 
ture of the system. They were 
pathetically anxious to show that 
treatment .of Mack workers has 
improved, that black wages have 
risen, since the price of gold was 
floated in the early Seventies, that 
black and white wage rates are 
being amalgamated, that more 
provision is being made for fern- 
flies, that more people want to 
work in the mines than there are 
jobs, and dot when the govern- 
ment abolishes the law prohibiting 
blacks from obtaining Masting 
certificates (a key to advancement 
within the mining world) they will 
be promoted entirely on merit 
But we were not bong told die 
unvarnished truth about con- 
ditions for Mack workers. If we 
had not asked, the 37-bed hostel 
would have remained hidden, and 
who knows what else there was 
which we did not think of asking 
to see, or would have been barred 
to us if we bad asked.

M y hostess rang a little 
silver belL One of her 
servants entered, re- 
moved the remainsof 
an exquisite dish and brought in 
another. We went on talking about 
politics. One does not feel rude 
talking mainly about politics at a 
South African dinner table, as 
nobody in South Africa seems able 
to avoid the subject 
“You'll be bored out of your 
mind here”, I was warned by a 
South African of English extrac- 
tion soon after I arrived. “They 
talk about nothing but politics." 
Politics are. however, of distress- 
ingly keen interest at the moment 
My hostess was of liberal convic- 
tions, grand and self-confident 
enough to retain the belief that 
there is a liberal solution to South 
Africa's problems. At length I 
plucked up the courage to ask her 
about redistribution of wealth. 

“If everyone is given the vote", 
I said, “in the federation based on 
geography rather than race which 
you recommend, is it not likely 
that you would lose this, er, rather 
magnificent house? In a democ- 
racy there is a temptation to win 
votes by offering electoral 
bribes — this happens a lot in 

Britain — and where a few voters 
are extremely rich, and many are 
very poor, the rich must fear . . T 
“But my maid says this is an 
awful hoase!” she replied. “In- 
dians and blacks go and buy flashy 
houses in Northdiff (a suburb of 
Johannesburg). The illegal buying 
of property is all that keeps the 
estate agents going. They’d find 
this house awfully dowdy: no mod 
cons, nothing new in it at alL" 

For all this lady’s calmness, 
many whites are evidently ter- 
rified of the likely economic 
consequences of black rule. The 
rich fear expropriation. Indus- 
trialists fear even worse state 
intervention than they suffer now. 
Poor whites fear for their jobs, as 
many are employed in work which 
could be done 1 more cheaply by 
blacks. Nor were most of the 
whites 1 met as confident as my 
liberal hostess that the blacks are 
ready to exercise the vote. Until 
quite recently, the British thought 
that most of the peoples whom 
they ruled were not ready for 
democracy, but this is not now a 
fashionable view. Many South 
Africans retain it Many, indeed, 
believe blacks will never be ready 
for the vote. 

Will Hamelin this time pay its debt? 

Hamelin, Lower Saxony 
Helmut KohL, the Chancellor, had 
come here to campaign for the re- 
election tomorrow of the Chris- 
tian Democrat Land government 
The Bonn parliament does not 
know the humble by-election. The 
rather grander Lara? election is the 
West German version of those 
British contests, in marginal seats, 
which shake the national govern- 
ment call in question the future of 
the leader, and cause the head of 
the party machine to say that this 
sort of setback is usual at about . 
mid-term in a parliament 
Only, in West Germany, we are 
beyond mid-term. The general 
election is due in January. So the 
Lower Saxony contest is as im- 
portant as people say it is. 
Everyone agrees that the result 

Everyone agrees that the result 
will be very dose. If anything, the 
opposition Social Democrats 

opposition Social Democrats 
(SPD) are the favourites. 

Defeat will of course cause 
Kohl's “future” to be “called in 
question”, although the authori- 
ties —as always on these occa- 
sions — stop short of saying with 
confidence that this questioning 
will result in his party removing 
him. Thau some believe, might 
make the CDU look even worse. 

So Kohlbad pressing reasons for 
wanting to be seen in so famously 

German a town. The place is 
called Hameln in German and is 
Hamelin in English only because 
when Browning, following Goe- 
the, the Brothers Grimm and 
numberless medieval bards, 
turned his attention to the Pied 
Piper. “Hamelin" fitted his scan- 
sion better. The locals do not 
mind, such is the publidty and 
tourism which the tale has brought 
the town since June 26, 1284. (The 
Pied Piper is the only fairy story 
which did not just happen once 
upon a time, but has a precise 
date - or has at least been given 
one by the Brothers Grimm.) 

The Pled Piper story is about, 
among other bad qualities, ingrati- 
tude. He leads away the town’s 
children, never to be seen again, 
because the town council foils to 
honour its promise to pay him for 
having led the rats away. This is 
how. privately, Kohl's small inner 
cirde of associates explain the 
voters’ present attitude. In less 
than four years. Kohl has presided 
over the virtual extinction of 
inflation. Indeed, the latest figures 
show an actual foil in prices, for 
the first time for 27 years. West 
Germany being the only big 
western country of which that 
could remotely be said. Un- 
employment is also lower than, for 
example, Britain. 

There is the angst about nuclear 
power and dying trees. Some of 
the sufferers get themselves hit by 
policeman, and do a lot of hitting 
back. In reality, the country is 
dramatically stable, if that is not a 
contradiction in terms. 

But Kohl has been unpopular 
for about two years and, after 
recovering in the opinion polls 
earlier this year, there is now this 
doubt about whether the govern- 
ment will be re-elected in January. 

Kohl's defenders would argue 
that West German voters have 
come to take their prosperity and 
stability for granted. Here in 
Hamelin, Kohl derided to remind 
them how unusual it was in the 
span of German history. Twice 
this century, he told the crowd in 
the market square, the country's 
currency had been destroyed, by 
inflation. Now prices are felling. 
Thus reminded, quite a few people 
in the crowd applauded. Those 
demonstrators against .nuclear 
power who had been violent the 
previous weekend had “misused 
the right to demonstrate;" 

Not many kilometres away 
from here. Kohl said, gesturing 
eastwards, were Germans who 
really .were denied freedomlThere; 
the people had lived “first under a 

Mown dictatorship, now under a 
red dictatorship.” He referred to 
Nato. in contrast to “draft dodgers 
who spend their nights in 
discotheques" (great applause). 

West Germans had built a good 
society, he insisted. But there were 
too few Germans to enjoy it, for by 
now he had got on to the subject of 
West Germany’s exceptionally 
low birth rate. “A country with 
children on the grass is a country . 
with a future," ne said — despite 
children being perhaps, a touchy 
subject in Hamelin. 

The day after Kohl's appearance 
here, the Emnid opinion poll 
showed that he had suddenly 
moved four points ahead of tire 
SPD chancellor-candidate, Johan- 
nes Ran. The SPD had fellen 
behind the CDU by a similar 
margin and -were briow 40 per cent 
for the first lime this year. On the 
same day, another poll Showed 
that 62 per cent of the electorate 
expected a continuing economic, 
improvement. All of this .may be 
too late for the CDU. in Lower 
Saxony tomorrow. The Frank- 
furter AUgemeine Zeitung Specu- 
lated that, when people are better 
off. they realize more that “they 
do not live by bread alone."

successful, will invariably be a partner- 
ship between the many interests in- 
volved; professionals or experts who 
help to work up a feasible proposal, the 
local authority that provides pump- 
priming finance and encouragement, 
the landowner. who makes die property 
available on favourable terms, perhaps 
on a licence initially, and sources ‘of 
finance including banks, building soci- 
eties and, in a few cases, insurance 

The fundamental point to stress is the 
urgent need for partnership between the 
public and private sector, between local 
politicians, community groups and non- 
public sources of finance. To restore 
hope we must have a vision and a source 
of inspiration. We must sink ©in- 
differences and . cut great * swathes 
through the cat's cradle of red tape 
which chokes this country from end to 

Prince Charles is the patron of theT\me&! RIBA

The Ancients believed in the 
immutability of character. So 
Tacitus, attempt^ to account for 
* the depravity which he believed 
the Emperor Tiberius had dis- 
played in his old age, could only 
conclude that he lad been a 
lifelong hypocrite; 

Our view- of personality las 
altered since then. Indeed, existen- 
tialists would have man live in a 
perpetual present, defining him by 
his actions in the immediate hour. 
This can lead to exaggeration, 
even nonsense, if it denies the 
effect of past actions on sub- 
sequent behaviour. Nevertheless 
it is valuable inasmuch as it draws 
attention to the difference of the 
past As L-P. Hartley put h in that 
resonant sentence with which The 
Go-Between opens: “The Past is a 
foreign country; they do things 
differently there”. 

‘ There is, however, one great 
exception: the Nazis and their 
crimes are forever with us. Others 
are permitted to donee; they are 
not Denis Healey is forgiven his 
Stalinist past, even that speech at 
the Labour Party conference in 
1943 in. which he welcomed the 
Russian occupation (“a social 
revolution") of Eastern Europe. 
Even now, to take another case, 
few except Nikolai Tolstoy or 
Christopher Booker seek out those 
responsible for handing over to 
StaCn those whom he considered 
enemies of the Soviet Union. That 
shameful act has hardly stained 
the- honourable careers of Lords 
Stockton and Aldington. Why, 
even Mr Begin, despite the grow- 
ing sympathy for Palestinians felt 
in this country, was excused his 
terrorist past 

But Nazis are another business. 
We still see old men hauled from 
40 years of obscurity to answer for 
crimes committed in that season 
of European madness. No doubt 
there is justice in putting a Klaus 
Barbie in the dock; will justice be 
served when his trial reveals the 
marginal complicity of many 

Now, however, the Austrians, 
by electing Dr Waldheim as 
president, are asserting that h is 
time to draw a line under all the 
events of the Second World War. 
They are surely right to do so. 
There are three reasons for believ- 
ing this, and they may be ad- 
vanced by those who fed nothing 
but dis&ist for Hitler. 

First, though conventional wis- 
dom has it that the Nazi crimes 
were of such unparalleled wicked- 
ness that we must never be 
allowed to fbtget them, we. are in 
feet in little danger of doing so, 
while _at the same time allowing 
such concentration on past evils to 
blind to present ones.

Poring over oils 
in placid waters 

There are days, when the phone 
never stops ringing with callers 
who reran!, romantically, the 
literary Editor of The Times as a 
land of Universal Aunt for silly 
questions, and the carpenters have 
started sawing down the partition 
wall for the fifth time, when I 
think Diogenes got it right- What 
could be better than to sit in a 
storage jar and be visited by 
disciples who want to hear you 
rather than themselves talk? No 
telephone. No conferences. No 

The trouble with such Utopian, 
get-away-from-it-alL desert-island 
day dreams is not what music to 
take. Nor what book. I see no 
problem there. The problem is the 
paintings. You do better to look at 
paintings in company with an 
aignmentative friend. But I am 
certainty not going to be ma- 
rooned on my own without some 
pictures. And I don't think it's fair 
to take tbe masterpieces of paint 
and pencil, because they are the 
property of the -world and should 
not be the monopoly of one pair of 
eyes. The game pick the ten 
most ghastly but enjoyable pic- 
tures which you can take to the 
desert bland without depriving 
the rest of the world. The Mona 
Lisa (whom The Times until 
recently spelled Monna Lisa to 
demonstrate that it knew her 
Italian roots, a work of sup- 
ererogation since the Italians call 
her La Gioconda X nearly qualifies, 
soppy cow, except that the back- 
ground is interesting; and anyway 
who wants to be stuck on an island 
with her fbr all eternity? 

But I am certainly going to take 
urith me an example of the 
remarkable things that impinged 
on canvas when the late Victorian 
artists discovered ancient Greece. 
All those models trying to look 
classical and mysterious, and 
managing to look as if we were 
key-holing the lacrosse team's 
changing-room ai Cheltenham 
Ladies' College. You know the 
sort of thing, from the school of 
Lord Leighton. Draper’s The La- 
ment for Icarus in the Tate is a 
strong nmner, with those naked 
nympheties peering at the heavily, 
feathered youth who has dropped 
in on them. So is Alma-Tadema's 
A Favourite Custom, bis coy view 
of Roman ladies in the bath, 
which encouraged Gilbert to name 
a .room in the Alma-Tadema 
Roman vision as the Flirtarium. 
But the winner is A-Ts In The 
Tepidarium at Port Sunlight, with 
tile Victorian shop assistant hav- 
ing exchanged a strigil for her 
Maidenform bust bodice, and 
fanning herself with a strategic 
ostrich feather. 

La the same fine’ of country 1 
have to have Edwin Long’s- the 

Babylonian Marriage Market - 
from -that repository of Victorian 
taste, the art collection of Royal 
Holloway and Bedford New Col- 
lie. It is a vast horizontal, and 
shows the Victorian sixth form 
sitting in a row waiting to be 
flogged off the prettiest fist, “the 
damsel who was equidistant be- 

Chris Worms* 

tween beauty and plainness being 
given away gratis”, and the ugliest 
being subsidized by the biggest - 
dowry, “so that the rich man’s 
taste was the poor man's gam.” I 
am tempted by Landseer’s Man * 
proposes — God disposes from the 
same treasure-house, showing two 
polar bears polishing off the last 
gobbets of an Arctic explorer. But 
it might be unsettling if this desal 
island were in northern latitudes. 

I must have Rubens’s Nature 
Adorned by the Graces from 
Glasgow, with its cornucopia of 
pneumatic bottoms; and I am 
inclined to a Fragonard swinging 
girl, as are the old gents who are 
pushing her and peering up her 
skirts. In case you suppose that " 
this is just an exercise in soft-porn 
pin-ups for the shipwrecked soli- 
tary, I think we should include in 
the gallery of dreadful but jolly 
pictures something holy and with 
upraised eyes from Murillo; The 
Penitent Magdalen, I vote. We 
shall have a Whaam-Bam pop 
vulgarization from Roy Lichten- 
stein, and Max Ernst's The Efe- 
phant Celebes, and a joke from 
Magritte: how about Time Trans- 
fixed with little train roaring out of 
the fireplace? 

I am still perfecting the collec- 
tion. But one of the reasons that 
London is preferable to a desert 
island or a Cynic’s storage jar is 
that we can eqjoy the paintings of 
the world, for free, the mat and 
the ghastly, the funnyVndlK 
inexplicably moving, and make ub 
our own minds about them, and 
chaise our minds as we go. - 

Secondly, the election of Dr 
Waldheim recognizes .that his life 
fbr tiie past 40 years can efface 
whatever he did between 1942 and 
1945. Reviewing Waldheim's 
autobiography. Lord Grimond de- 
scribed him as “one of the 
numerous Central European lib- 
erals who grew up in the appalling 
communist-fascist disasters of the 
first half of the century. Yet like 
other liberals he never filtered. He 
never conceals his love for free- 
dom, his understanding ofjusiice. 
Yet he retained fee trust of worlds 
which knew little oftiberalism or 
hated or feared what they knew.” 

In the light of recent revelations 
and accusations, the first two 
sentences of that quotation may 
read ironically. Yet his judgement 
may be permitted to stand: Dr 
Waldheim was a good secretary- 

general of the United Nations: 
Even if he had been a fervent Nazi 
in his youth, it might be thought 
that his work and conduct over the 
past 40 years had expiated the 

But the third reason is the most 
important. A man is indeed to be 
held accountable for his actions, 
but people change; there Is, as it 
were, a statute of limitations in 
personality. Which of us, looking 
back even 20 years, has not stood 
appalled and : uncomprehending 
before the spectacle of our own 
conduct and convictions, unable 
sometimes to recognize what is 
presented to us as ourselves? It is 
often hard to believe in the reality, 
of one’s past behaviour, to.credii- 
that the person who acted then 
could have become one's present- 
self There are indeed few stranger, 
beings than the person one used to 
be. It would surprise me if Dr 
Waldheim doesn't view his own 
youth with a similar incredulous 
dismay. He was brought up in a. 
Europe where reality had become 
surreaL In that infected climate 
many men did things which would ' 
horrify their children and may' 
horrify themselves. Last year 
President Reagan was severely 
criticized when he described the 
German war dead, even the SS, as 
victims of Nazism. Yet he was 

It has been the task of survivors 
and successors to restore sanity, to 
return to a duller but better world.- 
Dr Waldheim would seem to have 
made that journey, which is an *• 
honourable one. He has lied about 
his past which is reprehensible, 
but not entirely so; there is after all 
often- a peculiar shamelessness in 
proclaiming the worst truth about 
one self Yet his lying does not 
alter the argument that deeds 
-committed in that foreign country 
that is tiie >past should now be - 
allowed to rest

JUNE 14 1958 

. ; The continuing rise in un- 
“ employment through the 

- spring may still be reversed by 
; the impact of the Job Start 

. : ' Scheme and other gpedal 

* employment measures later in 

- • the year. That rise is nonethe- 

• _i" less extremely disappointing. 

' The worst aspect of the 
current trend is that the net 
-• rate of job creation has slowed, 
r principally because more jobs 
. . are being lost in the manufac- 
; taring and energy sectors. This 
. conies at a time when sus- 
. tained . job creation might 
-- make some impact on the dole 
.-queues because fewer extra 
people will be looking for 

- work. Nearly a million more 
people now have work than at 

. ..the post-recession trough in 
1 983. But the pace will need to 
accelerate if we are to ease the 

- - social problems- of an under- 
: "class left out of the main- 
■ stream economy. 

~ In this context, the com- 
-d prehensive .new employer- 
-based forecasts of employment 
I 'trends reported by Sir Austin : 

- - Side's - Occupations Study 
:* Group make gloomy reading. 

They foresee the economy 
' producing a maximum of 
1 75,000 extra jobs by 1 990 — 

- allowing for some acceleration 
•:.:in the formation of new firms 
- " — and, more likely, a small fell 
-in the numbers in work. 

' . Within this overall picture, it 
r is clear that Government mea- 
. -litres to push more school- 

leavers into jobs are working. 

: The Youth Training Scheme 
; adds to the natural advantages 
• : of young people as employees, 
j ’Reform ofWages Councils will 
help further. At the same time, 

~ employers expect that the shift 
" from mil-time jobs in big firms 
v 10 part-time working — hith- 
; erto largely a preserve of 
-women — will run at a greater 
: pace than previously thought 
'More men, looking for full- 
time jobs, are likely to find 
themselves frustrated. Simi- 

mainly redistribute job 
opportunities. Their addition 
to total employment must 
always be minor. 

The numbers in' medium 
term forecasts like the OSG 
report are notoriously fallible. 
The causal analysis carries 
more weight It suggests , that 
while Lora Young's efforts to 
improve the labour market 
. and encourage the enterprise 
culture are vital to a finan- 
cially sound employment 
strategy, they may not prove-: 
enough. The survey of employ- - 
ers confirms that the service 
sectors, and especially new and 
small firms, are the main 
hopes for job creation. But it’ 
also shows that more than half 
of these new job® replace — 
indeed displace —jobs in larger 
firms in- manufacturing and 
other production industries, 
either through big firms sub- 
contracting or through com- 
petition. . Hence an 
acceleration, of job creation in 
new and small service firms is 
likely to be accompanied by a 
further loss of manufacturing ' 
jobs in big firms. 

Some problems lie in the 
hands of employers them- 
selves. They trumpet the need 
for better-trained multi- 
skilled employees. Govern- 
ment investment in vocational 
education and training and 
subsidy through the YTS are 
higher than ever before. Yet 
too many employers still do 
too little training.- 
Likewise the survey reveals 
a cautious approach among 
managers who have "emerged 
from the slump. Outside the 
service sector, they are pre- 
occupied with raising 
productivity via better work- 
ing practices and introducing • 
new labour-saving technology. 
But there is little appetite for 
the expansion that g ains in . 
competitiveness could bring if 
wage levels were kept under 

ment Industry is happy to 
substitute cheaper forms of 
labour though converting to 
part-time jobs or by taking 
advantage of YTS, yet still 
seems to regard wages levels as 
given and the annual pay rise 
as inevitable. 

The experience of the 
. United States, where wages 
have proved flexible down- 
wards in ailing -industries and 
unions have agreed to re- 
negotiate contracts agreed m 
more expansive times, . has 
shown that jobs can be created 
. in great numbers if the price of 
labour is reduced. Whatever 
happened to Sir Terence 
Beckett's rousing *nowt for 
nowt* slogan at the CBI con- 
ference last -November? 
According to Thursday’s la- 
bour statistics, the 12-month 
rise in average earnings has 
accelerated to 8.7 per cent, 
more than treble the inflation 
rate, for the first time since 
1968. Unless such wage rises 
are allowed to translate into 
inflation, they must ultimately 
be paid for by an increase in 
the unemployed, rendering

merchant shipbuilding and 
motor manufacture that have

Dark, MPfor Birmingham, Seily 
Oak ( Conservative) 

Sir. The crimes of Nazism were 
unique in their enormity and as 
such tainted a whole generation in 
Austria and Germany, who, 
understandably or not, stood on 
one ride while six million Jews 
were destroyed in the most bar- 
baric way known to mankind. 

The crimes were not. mainly, 
com milted in the beat of battle but 
were a concerted and coldly 
calculated endeavour to wipe a 
section of humanity from the face 
of Europe. Six million human 
beings were murdered not by a few 
Nazis; the task had to have the 
passive as well as the active co- 
operation of hundreds of thou- 
sands of Austrians and Germans. 

This litany of evil surely makes 
anyone who played a pan in it. 
however small, unsnited for pub- 
lic office, let alone as president. 
Hence my view that we cannot 
welcome the election of Dr Wald- 
heim and certainly not receive 
him as an official guest 

The crimes of Nazism can never 
be forgiven and must not be 
forgotten, for to do so could mean 
that in a generation yet to come 
the terrible past could become yet 
again a terrible future 

This is not vindictiveness, but 
Austrians must realise they cannot 
bury the past in a ballot, ft is only 
a new generation that recognises 
the appalling past that can hope to 
step forward out of the ashes of the 
dead to an acceptable democratic

very. little warning and he was 

Britain, was smiling - and 
enthusiastic when he described 
the usefulness of bis talks in 
London. He was pleased with 
his reception, as well he might 
have been. For a- communist 
party leader with no state 

- portfolio (China also has a 
prime minister and a president 

. . and Deng Xiaoping), visiting a 
decidedly non-communist 

- country, Mr Hu was received 
in a manner appropriate to a 

" Head of State. 

"7 His visit — at the start of a 
four-country tour of Western 
vEurope — demonstrates a Chi- 
; nese commitment to better 
. relations with Western Europe 
i .which is a positive sign from a

been self-centred. It also dem-

Mr Hu left Inking, however, 
did his bestto put minds at • one of these successors, Wang 


But the Chinese usually 
know just how frank to be 
when they are speaking frankly 
abroad, and the subject of 
Hongkong, avoided as fer as 
possible in official statements, 
was touched . on only in ques- 
tions. Mr Hu duly expressed 
satisfaction with the way talks 
were proceeding. And, again, 
he might well do so. Not only 
have British attempts to be- 
queath to Hongkong a 
democratically elected govern- 
ment apparently been shelved 
after Chinese objections last 
year, but the British Govern- 
ment continues to speak con- 
fidently about Hongkong's 
prospects of carrying on much 
as before after 1 997. Many, not 
only in Hongkong, would be 
less confident 

Mr Hu Yaobang argued 
while in London that China 
, would not abandon its present 
... policies because they benefited 
..the people, because they.were 
popular and because the older 

Zhaoguo regarded as one of | 
Deng’s proteges — has appar- 
ently lost his job as director of 
the Communist Party's Gen- 1 
eral Office. The large and 
distinguished entourage 
accompanying Mr Hu on his 
travels may be a compliment 

- to the host countries, but even 
: in today's - China it leaves 

certain risks at home. ' 

In common with many Chi- 
nese visitors to the West, Hu 
Yaobang certainly has a talent 
for presentation. And it is a 
• matter for satisfaction — on 
both sides —that the climate of I 
Anglo-Chinese relations is 

- such as to make a visit by a 
Chinese Communist Party 
leader as cordial as it clearly 
was. So long as this climate 
persists, there is hope that the 
transition in Hongkong will be 
less sharp than it might other- 
wise be. But we should be wary 
of interpreting _• Mr Hu’s 
accomplished and well-in- 
formed public relations as 
evidence that all will necessar- 
ily, proceed smoothly in future. 

Hampton Court limes 

From Mr Marius Goring 
Sir, Arising from your Environ- 
ment Correspondent’s report to- 
day (June 1 1) it is interesting to 
note that Lord Elton refers to the 
“restoring of the Wren extension 
badly damaged in the fire" at 
Hampton Court Palace m similar 
terms to the proposed “frill . 
restoration” of the Wren lime 
avenue in which “aB the existing 
trees (well over 100) would be 
removed” (department brochure). 
One bad reason to hope that the 
latter proposition would be forgot- 
ten in the wake of the former 

Clean felling of the avenue was 
rejected by the Secretary of State 
for the Environment on Novem- 
ber 8, 1978, in the House of 
Commons, partly as the result of a 
long correspondence in your col- 
umns in which many of the finest 
experts in the country declared 
their total opposition to the plan.- 
Yours etc, 


Middle Court, 

Hampton Court, Surrey. 

From Mrs Monica Furlong 
Sir. Mrs Brown (June 7) sees the 
progress of “the women's issue” 
through General Synod as a 
crawling train which may never 
reach its station. The Reverend R. 
A. Jupp. wants peace at any price. 
Both, in their different ways, 
capture the effete weariness of the 
Church of England at present. 

It is interesting to contrast this 
with the immense vitality within 
the Christian women's movement 
itself in this country — the 
Movement for the Ordination of 
Women (MOW), Women in 
Theology, the Christian Feminist 
Movement, and the Roman 
Catholic St Joan's Alliance and the 
Catholic Women's Network — 
where hundreds of women share a 
new experience of faith, and ask, 
so far in vain, to be allowed to 
bring more of this energy and love 
into the institutional Church. 

At the recent service of thanks- 
giving for women's ministry held 
by MOW in Canterbury Cathe- 
dral, some 3,000 women came 
from ail over the Anglican world, 
and several hundred stayed on to a 
conference on the work and status 
of women in the churches. 

In Brazil, we learned, as in parts 
of Africa, the Anglican Church 
owes its continued existence to the 
faithfulness of women, since men 
are either absent or indifferent to 
Christian belief. In the USA- 
Canada, New Zealand, Brazil, 
south India. Hong Kong, Uganda 
and Kenya there are, in aggregate, 
something like 1,000 ordained 
women. Those who came seemed 
puzzled at the indifferent attitude 
to women's ministry in the 
churches here. 

It is not only in the matter of 
ordination that the Church of 
England lags behind its sister 
churches. A recent General Synod 
report. Servants of the Lord, 
despite its whitewashing tone, 
revealed all too clearly that 
women play almost no part in the 
central decision-making processes 
of the Church of England not least 
because many of these are carried 
out by clergy. 

As we begin to prepare for the 
Lambeth Conference in 1988. yet 
another all-male forum in which 
vital policies for the Church will 
be debated, women must ask 
themselves, I think, whether in 
truth their insights and service are 
wanted in the Church, or whether 
their rejection from the priesthood 
reveals a much deeper rejection of 
all that they are and are trying to 
offer. This question will be very 

much in the minds of some of us 
as we watch the crucial debates at 
Synod in July. 

But yes. the Bishop of London is 
quite righL The energy that is 
coming from a huge group of 
women in the Church of England 
is well described by the image of 
an express train. There is no need 
for collision, however, simply for 
the lights to be setto green so that 
the train can move forward. 

Yours sincerely,

From the Reverend M. T. Elvins 
Sir, In reply to Canon Wilkinson 
(June 3) I have yet to meet all 
these Catholics clamouring for the 
ordination of women, a married 
clergy and contraception: after 13 
years of ministry I am convinced 
such a groundsweU of opinion is 
largely the fabrication of the 

Moreover, the random surveys 
hardly equate with the Ecdesia 
docta, which Newman describes as 
the body of the faithful who 
maintain the divine tradition. 
Well orchestrated rumblings from 
a wen educated vocal minority do 
not represent what is understood 
by pluralism. 

Equality, freedom and human 
rights are not an end in themselves 
for even they must be seen as 
subject to God's laws and the 
received tradition of his Church. 

I am Sir, yours faithfully, 


55 Upper North Street, 

Brighton, East Sussex. 

From Mr Robin MaxweU-Hyslop, 
MPfor Tiverton (Conservative) 

Sir, Today's Times (June 10) 
reports that "Parliament has asked 
the Church of England to amend 
the proposed service for the 
ordination of women deacons to 
exclude prayers expressing the 
hope that the candidate will go on 
to the priesthood”. 

Parliament has done no such 
thing, nor has the matter been 
discussed by either house of 
Parliament. The Ecclesiastical 
Committee is a “statutory 
committee”, not a committee of 
Parliament It has no authority to 
take decisions in the name of 
Parliament, nor does Parliament 
always agree with or give exec-

Two groups of scientists, one 
^German and the other 
./Argentinian, have been jointly 
’. studying the Andes, with a 
• View to discovering once and 
' for aO how old they are. The 
^ experts’ researches concluded, 
: they have startling news for os 
alb the celebrated mountains 
-are 50 million, years younger 
than had hitherto been be- 
lieved; or, as the scientists 
'-demurely put it in their report, 
/•they “could have been' formed 
' as recently as 570 million years 
/ago." - 

i . This revision is decidedly 
-.disturbing. There were 1 the 
-Andes, fixed in everybody’s 
-mind as grave, solid citizens 
(witness their white heads), of 
ran age at which they were 
rightly looked up to as a 
Stabilizing element in the ^11 
joo volatile South American 
continent, and we now leant 
-that they are nothing of the 
kind. It seems that they are 
skittish young things, pos- 
itively flighty* or “formed as 
Veceutly as 570 million years 

. It is true that mountains, 
like ships, are always referred 
to as “she”, and many a lady 
would be greatly relieved /to 
learn that her birth had been • 
wrongly recorded and that she 
was 5Q million years younger 
than she . ted ' previously - 

thought, let alone admitted. 
But we must insist that in this 
matter it is our feelings that 
should be considered, not. 
toose of the mountains. 

. For if we 'caiihot rely , on 
geology, what can we rely on? 
Certainly not physics, where 
particles can now be in two 
places at once, or astronomy, 
littered as it how is with, 
pulsars and qiiasfos, nor com- 
puter science, which we never 
understood' in the first place. 
But the formation Of the earth 
seemed sufficiently slow and 
certain to be daied'in perpetu- 
ity. Now what? ' . / 

There is, bf Course, the story 
of the English r- tourist in 
Switzerland' who . was giving 
his guide a hard time with the 
silliness ofhis questions; when 
they found themselves, in a 
rock-strewn valley,. the trav- 
eller asked how foe rocks, had 
got there, /and was told that 
they had been brought down 
by a glacier.. The -Englishman 
-peered upat the mountain and • 
Said “I can't see ainy glacier/* 

“No”, said the guide .through - 
grit ted - teeth; “Jt’s/gone back 
for more’ rocks” (This, in-, 
cidentally, maybe, the only, 
joke ever, plausibly attributed 
to the-Swiss.)- - -. . 

But what about foe Incas? In 
Peter Shaffer’s, play, The Royal 

Hunt of the Sun, Atahualpa, 
the Inca king, told of the 
approaching Spaniards, cries 
out “Let them see my 
mountains!", and the Span- 
iards are duly astonished and 
dismayed at the mighty barrier 
before them. If they had 
known that Atabualpa's 
mountains were mere strip- 
lings, scarcely 570 million 
years old, they would have 
made a laughing-stock of Incas 
and Andes alike. 

And what about the rest of 
the world's mountains? Must 
we now eye the Himalayas 
suspiciously, worry, about the 
Rockies, ask the Alps for proof 
of their age before selling 
liquor? All in all, it would have 
been better if the scientists had 
never embarked, on their 
iconoclastic researches, or at 
least supressed their findings 
when found. But the damage is 
now done, and we must be 
brave. Beachcomber can help

Tactical thuggery 

From Mr T. Hetherington 
Sir, The spectacle of (Association) 
professional football matches is 
being rendered increasingly boring 
and contemptible by the huge 
number of fouls committed. I am 
indeed disgusted to see in your 
issue (June 6) that a certain player 
is described as a self-confessed 
professional fouler, and I doubt if 
he is the only one. 

A drastic tightening of the rules 
is necessary. I suggest that it m the 
opinon of the referee, a deliberate 
foul has been committed, the 
player should be seat off immedi- 
ately, without wanting, 'and that 
no replacement, of course, should 
be allowed; and that the services of 
any referee who is considered to be 
lax in enforcing this rule should be 
dispensed with.

Immigration policy 

From the Director of the 
Runnyemede Trust 
Sir, The responses to Mr 
Kinnocfc's speech in India on 
immigration law have included, 
according -to. -your .political 
correspondent on May 29, a 
comment by Mr John Wheeler, 
MP, that Labour “was threatening 
to send primary immigration 
rocketing back to 100,000a year or 

It is a puzzle how anyone could 
interpret Mr Kinnock’s reported 
remarks to mean this. He appears 
indeed to have said very little 
except that Labour would produce 
an immigration law that was not 
-racially discriminatoiy. This im- 
plies nothing about total numbers. 

- One could have a much stricter, 
or mud) more generous, system 
than the present which in either 

case- discriminated on grounds 
other than racial origin. And it 
imples nothing about “primary’* 
immigration, that is, entry by 
persons other than the dependants 
of people settled here. 

It. is impossible to . have a 
rational or useful; debate on im- 
migration conducted in terms of 
-vague suppositions on' the one 
hand and randomly chosen num- 
bers on the other. 

For this reafion the Runnymede 
Trust has been for some months 
preparing an “unofficial green 
paper” on immigration, putting 
together feels and figures on the 
basis of which we hope a more 
genuine debate can take place. We 
hope to publish it before the end of 
this year.

Strawberries to Spare 

In a general way it is possible to 
have too much of a good thing; but 
there seems something profane, 
rejection of the gifts of Providence, 
in complaining of too many straw- 
berries. Yet that is what we are told 
the growers and merchants round 
Wisbech are doing: they fear a glut. 
Doubtless they know their own 
business but the mere Lay eater of 
strawberries feels like the cabman 
in the old Punch picture when 
called upon to pity an intox i cated 
gentleman on the pavement — *T 
only wish I had half his 
complaint” . . there is certainly 
much to be said for raspberries, but 
the strawberry is the most symbol 
lie of aU fruits. It stands for the 
[ occasion, for May Week or the top 
of a coach at Lord's, for white 
waistcoats and button boles. It is 
'possible to have too much salmon 
| or mayonnaise sauce or cucumber 
(though as to that Mrs. Prig would 
not have thought so) — afi sweet 
things in their festal way — but 
hardly too much of strawberries- 
Kings of England, in the history 
books at least, died of surfeits, one 
l of them peaches, but none of them 
[ever died of strawberries, though 
they constitute an essentially regal 
fruit. We are told that a “take It or 
leave it” price may be offered for 
1 excess strawberries. It is hard to 
imaging leaving it. 

As to the best way of eating 
strawberries, opinions win inevita- 
bly differ. The strawberry mess 
with all the richness and splendour 
of ice cream is hard to beat The 
ordinary domestic strawberries 
and cream are very good, though 
the removal of the stalks is an 
impatient and messy job. In some 
ways the s tra w ber r y is most glori- 
ous in its own beautiful simplicity. 
Delicately to nibble off the top arid 
then plunge the decapitated trunk 
into foe white sugar can give great 
| tec h nical and artistic satisfaction. 
If it were not for the agony of 
stooping to eat them straight from 
the net with the sun still hot on 
them would perhaps be best of alL 
Those who know their Emma wiQ 
remember the scene of the straw- 
berry picking at Donwell Abbey 
I and may foe! against all their better 
instincts that Mra. Elton was for 
once 'right and Mrs. Knightley fin- 
ance wrong. Mrs. Elton wanted “a 
sort of gipsy party” with a table 
Bpread in foe shade- She was, as 
Emma exclaimed “a little upstart 
vulgar being” and was more inter- 
ested in her little basket with the 
pink ribbon than in the strawber- 
ries; but her party might have been 
better fim than the table spread in 
the diningroom, as Mrs. Knightley 
[decreed it was to be. It » horrid 
treachery to admit the thought hot 
it wiU obtrude itself. 

Stag hunt decision 

From MrJ. A. Cunningham 
Sir, With a delightfully emotive 
letter (June 5) Richard Course of 
the League Against Cruel Sports 
argues himself into an impossible 
position. He dislikes “bounding of 
deer” by the staghunters. He 
disapproves of formers who 
“wreak their vengeance on any 
deer which venture on to their 
land". He proposes instead a 
“deer management body . . . with 
its own stalkers”. 

I understood that deer-stalking, 
along with bunting, shooting and 
fishing, were all on the League’s 
hit list. Perhaps it is different 
when the League provides the 
stalkers itself

On the verge 

From Dr A. J. Richards 
Sir, On May 31 your correspon- 
dent G Hart noted the exceptional 
display of dandelions along the 
verse edges of roads and motor- 
ways this spring. This has become 
particularly marked over the last 
decade. He wonders whether this 
might result from the practice of 
salting roads in winter. 

In this he is undoubtedly cor- 
rect. The effect of heavy winter 
salting is that verge soils within a 
metre of the road become very 
saline, and most grasses and other 
herbs arc unable to grow there. 
This effect can be plainly seen at 
the end of the winter, when the 
verges are largely bare. 

Dandelions compete poorly 
with vigorous grasses, but their 
airborne seeds render them ef- 
ficient colonisers of bare soil 
where they grow rapidly in the 
absence of competition. Most 
gardeners will testily to this. Many 
dandelions are also intolerant of 
salt However research work in 
this department has shown that a 
group of species known as 
'Taraxacum section Hamate" are 
relatively salt-tolerant, and it is 
these that predominate next to the 
road in the grass-free zone.

Architects 9 drawings 

From Mr Mark Girouard and 

Sir, The renown of the Royal 
Institute of British Architects' 
Drawings Collection and Heinz 
Gallery is legendary. In our opin-

facility to the institute’s head- 
quarters in Portland Place are ill- 
conceived and dangerously 
damaging to the friendly patron- 
age that has for so long supported 
this admired out-station of the 

Although we do not deny the 
institute’s need to enliven its HQ, 
the physical presence of the collec- 
tion is quite unnecessary, and 
prohibitively costly to effect. 
Moreover, we understand that the 
collection would be subject to 
storage restrictions by the mid- 

. We appeal to the president and 
council of the RIBA to abandon 
this project and to allow the 
collection to prosper in Portman 
Square, with all the incumbent 
opportunities for growth and suc- 
cess when it can occupy all of the 
building in 1989.

Cleaning up 

From Professor G . Ashworth 
Sir, The Prime Minister's 
realisation that Britain is untidy 
and dirty is merely the latest 
example of her continuing capac- 
ity to discover, with no him of 
d&jtl vu, tilings that others have 
known for a generation. Her 
proposed solution is no less 
bizarre than the lateness of her 

To invite Richard Branson, - 
whore ignorance of the problem 
appears to be profound, to chair a 
campaign to clean up Britain, is an 
insult to those who for 30 years or 
more have been actively involved 
in such a programme. To ask such 
organisations as the Civic Trust 
and Groundwork to collaborate 
with Mr Branson in deploying £25 
million when they have had to 
contend with generations of Gov- 
ernment parsimony is 
patron itingly offensive. 

The British public has never 
been over-enthusiastic in its re- 
sponse to “environmental" cam- 
paigns (except where personal 
safety seems threatened). Is it 
likely to respond to someone 
whose credentials for the job 
appear to be the encouragement of 
aural pollution and the burning of 
vast quantities of irreplaceable 
fossil fuels by participating in 
meaningless transatlantic races?

As more and more small publishers are bought up and amalgamated, 
the minute house of Eland stands firm. Nicholas Shakespeare talked 
to John Hatt, its remarkable founder, owner and general dogsbody

When the Virgin Mary ap- 
peared at Fatima she node a

Still tires in Cuimbra. 

In her second programme on 
divine intervention, Parting it 
Right (BBC!), Snsan 
Crosland might have done well 
to visit this delightful Portu- 
guese town. Instead she made 
for the Greek shrine of Tinos. 
Her investigation Into the 
healing powers of an icon dug 
sip after repeated visions of the 
Virgin was only of moderate 
interest It should have been 

Crosland took to Tinos a 
Norfolk woman who was near 
t» death until her anointment 
with holy oil from the island. 
Unfortunately. Shirley's arriv- 
al had nothing momentous 
about it Nor was the oil or the 
icon examined in much detail. 
Instead we had shots of a 
military band which sounded 
like a squeaking pram and 
lengthy cut-aways of the 

The Cb arch’s argument was 
put by a sonorous Greek 
reverend whose white beard 
reached his knees, and, more 
provocatively by the Bishop of 
Durham who would tike to see 
a lot more icons. He described 
the miracles they are capable 
of as “a wonderful woof of 
understanding and presence*’. 
The better the painting, the 
more likely the woot was the 
judgement of an icon expert 
from the auctioneers, 

While CroslamTs second 
foray into fate was on a more 
serious level than her first, it 
sadly lost direction. By the 
end, crippled by her cautions 
schizophrenia on the subject, 
she can have cured no viewers 
of their belier or unbelief. 

Looks Familiar (Channel 4) 
is the title of a programme 
presented, devised and written 
fay Dennis Norden. Quite how 
it has reached its 14th series is 
something of a miracle. Three 
old stars sit on a set which 
would turn a Dutchman's 
stomach and remember their 
days in rep. 

In case their memories have 
snapped In the fast rewind, 
Dennis prompts them with 
various dips from yesteryear; 
Karloff the Uncanny in The 
Invisible Ray or Freddie 
Frinton playing a drank. 

Acquiescing with this flimsy 
formula for raking the past, 
Bill Fraser told of an incident 
onstage when a divot aimed at 
his hard hit him below the 
belt Raising his hands to his 
face be had to say: “My God, 
she’s blinded me.” The pro- 
gramme misses its target in 
much the same way. It has 
neither the excitement of a 
quiz show nor the interest 
generated by unashamed 



In a small house in Battersea there 
is a telephone answering-machine 
which has become celebrated for its 
request that the caller does not 
speak after the bleep, but instead 
write a letter. In its time the 
machine has carried even more 
byzantine messages. ‘"This is lohn 
Hatt”. it rasped on one occasion 
recently. M lf you are a journalist, I 
will never under any drcu'mstances 
speak to you.” 

In anybody but John Rickatson- 
Hatt such behaviourmight be seen 
as odd. Considering the number 
dialled is a publishing house, it 
might also be regarded as an 
unwise business move. Yet this 
month the one-man band of Eland 
Books - named after the street 
outside — publishes its twenty-first 
book in its five-year history of 
travel reprints. If the finely-pack- 
aged volume is received as well as 
the previous 20, the author can be 
well pleased. 

In fact the author in question, 
Norman Lewis, is already more 
than a little gruntled with HatL 
Eland’s very first reprint was 
Lewis's A Dragon Apparent, to be 
followed by' his long-buried classic 
Naples '44. “Until John dug my 
books up, I had been forgotten as a 
travel writer”, concedes the modest 
man now dubbed by Auberon 
Waugh, and many others, as the 
greatest writer of travel since 
Marco Polo. 

He is not the only happy Eland 
author. One. so pleased to be 
published by HatL actually waived 

his last royalty right “John really 
made everyone interested in travel 
books” claims Eland's best seller, 
Martha Geilhom. “He was the sole 
inventor.” Her eulogy is shared by 
the critics. “Book for book, the list 
is probably the best in London”, 
wrote Byron Rogers in the Stan- 
dard, while Miles Kington devoted 
a whole “Moreover” column to 
Eland's edition of Viva Mexico! by 
Charles Flandreau - “probably the 
best travel book I have ever read”. 

In a world which distrusts every- 
thing but the commonplace, John 
Hatt is a mild phenomenon. “I’m 
37. 1 think” he says, opening toe 
door into his back garden. He 
wants to show off some frogs which 
he believes have fallen from toe sky 
in the rain. There is no earthly 
other wav they could have come. 
His eccentricity is genuine and, like 
his enthusiasm, infectious. 

Sharing a birthday, and many 
sympathies, with Mrs Thatcher, be 
judges others by whether he thinks 
they might share water with him in 
toe desert. In his code of honour, 
Simon Winchester should have 
returned to Argentina to face toe 
charges he was bailed on. Written 
in this codebook is a view on 
everything under toe sun, a view 
which is expressed in a loutL 
penetrating voice as a result of 
slight deafness in one ear. 

Of toe many views held about 
John Han, one is commonly 
shared. The man is incorruptible. 
Which accounts for why last year, 
when he could hardly pay his 


telephone bills — Han scared off 
an American who offered to buy 
Eland for £2 million. “I explained 
to him extremely hard that there 
was no money in it” be says, 
standing back from toe waO, 
unable for the moment to find his 

"People do frequently offer me 
money”. Halt admits. He speaks of 
writers - some of them household 
names — who are mustard keen for 
the Band imprint of approval, and 
' of publishers who would like to 
swallow him whole. Dedining 
politely. Han has soldiered on to a 
position today whereby “1 pay the 
printer’s bill more or less on time”. 

Left nothing by a mudMnarried 
father — a former head of Reuters — 
Hatt passed through Eton and 
Oxford in quilted jeans. After a 
spell as a gardener in an American 
country club and a year in toe City, 
he became a sales rep for Constable 
“and visited every single bookshop 
in England, Scotland and Wales”. 
It was having taken a sabbatical to 
research The Tropical Traveller — 
an incomparable lexicon of travel 
tips — that Hatt dedded to reprint 
travel books on his own. 

"When I first addressed my reps. 

Published with loves John Hatt amid his swamps of prose at home m Battersea 

they said you’ll never sell these to 
the bookshops because there are no 

the bookshops because there are no 
shelves for travel — just guide- 
books. I said you shouldn't be 
bullied by the bookshops. You 
must jump over them to reach the 
public. It never occurred to me, 
however, anyone else would do it” 
In fact, just about everyone rushed 

after Hatt into the undergrowth of 
travel literature. “Now 90 per cent 
of what I see on the shelves are my 
rejects. Tm not saying they -are all 
bad. But they are nearly all boring.” 

For the last five years Hatt has 
read and discarded some 20 books 
a week in search of his elusive 
material. I'm looking for supreme 
readabihty/Tt’s a God-given gift. 
There's a mild parallel with danc- 
ing in that everyone can go through 
the motions without having that 
magic ingredient It's a combina- 
tion of lucidity, elegance and 
character, so magical that many 
writers only pnfl it off once.” 

One of Band's advantages is the 
ability to publish only what Hatt 
deems to be good, rather than 
anything and everything his au- 

thors turn oul fin the case of 
Andrew Graham-YootTs book A 
State cf Fear, Han even got 'the 
author to rewrite two _cbaj»ers he 
did not much like.) This means, he 
hopes, that people now boy his 
books by the name of the publisher. 
“Like Mills and Boon”, be ex- 
plains. “I’ve got this absolutely 

unsaleable book about lighthouse- 
keepers coming up, but I hope 
reviewers will give it a chance, 
knowing it’s published with love.” 

Though he dispenses advice' to 
all setting off abroad, Hatt admits 
to being a rotten traveller himself 
Three years ago he did not make it 
to Scotland without suffering se- 
vere stomach cramp. In hospital a 
nurse asked him for his BUPA 
number. He told her to -ring his 

secretary and gM ter to look in a 
file in the third. drawer down. 
“They started feeding me with 
largactyi as if I were a madman’ 1 , 
remembers Han. “What they had 
in fact asked me was my rc&gfoos 
denomination.” . 

Though occasionally spotted:, 
packing his. Globetrotter _ and , 

Puxdey for a trip to Cuba or Peru, 
Hail prefers wading th rough un- 
charted swamps of prose from bis 
Chairin Battersea. “People take me 
a bit on trass”, he concludes. “I put 
an ad in The Traveller sayine 
anyone could send back any Eland 
book without merit and their 
money would be refunded. Not a 
single book came back, ff many 
other publishers did that, I bet their 
mailbags would be dogged." 


Rough, tough, street life

The Court's frith in toe play

into a promenade zone ex-

All round him were the 
packed seats of the parade

and bright suits and silk

La belle 


on a bike 

Motor cycle maniac Ronald Faux revs up 
on his route from the cold northern 

shores to the warmth of the Mediterranean 

Towards motor cycling I can 
confess the same burning enthusi- 
asm that Toad had towards cam. 
Not the ultra-fen machines that 
are sleek virility symbols with the 
power to reach 60mph in two 
seconds, wear out a back tyre in 
2,000 miles, and use rather more 
petrol than the average car. Our 
preference last summer was for a 
touring machine that would eat 
miles effortlessly, carry us south to 
the sunshine and reintroduce the 
gentle pleasures of two-wheeled 

So it was that we set out on a 
BMW K100, the latest variety 
with 1,000 water-cooled ccs set 
between a pair of stout wheels, 
panniers and a tank-bag packed 
with what would be our sleeping 
quarters and kitchen for a fort- 
night Thai is what had always 
appealed to me about motor 
cycling; the sheer compact econo- 
my of transporting a home on two 
wheels and crossing continents 
like some swift tortoise. 

We set out for France from the 
north of England on a day forecast 
to be summer dry but which was 
torrential!}' wet I had been a 
dedicated motor cyclist when such 
weather would have cancelled the 
expedition in the first few miles, 
because either the bike's electrics 
would have short-circuited or the 
downpour would have penetrated 
to the skin. 

How times have changed. The 
machine purred unhesitatingly 
through the deluge past sheep that 
huddled for shelter along the lee 
side of walls and out on to the M 6 
where vicious blasts of westerly 
winds obliged high-sided lorries to 
travel side by side. 

“Don’t worry", I bellowed to 

my wife, the cringing figure on the 
get further s< 

pillion. “As we get further south it 
is bound to improve. We will feel 
the sun getting stronger, smell the 
warmth of the countryside." 

Not so. The rain was descending 
in stair rods as the BMW grum- 
bled into the vehide hold of the 
Earl Granville, one of British 
Ferries's smartly refurbished ves- 
sels operating from Portsmouth. 
We dried out in the comfort of the 
lounge and enjoyed an excellent 
meal before disembarking at Cher- 
bourg and negotiating the slippery 
dockside roads on the next wet leg 
of our journey. 

Whatever low pressure pattern 
was causing the nightmare sum- 
mer, it respected no national 
borders and the flat open fields of 
Normandy were swept by the 
poplar-bending winds, the ma- 
chine nudging into the gusts. We 
halted at Nantes and admired the 
drenched steps of the cathedral 
from which the famous edict was 
read that was supposed to have 
persuaded my ancestors to emi- 
grate across the Chann el

Some worry about the safety or 
motor cycling ami complain that 
driving among Continental mo- 
torists leaves them feeling as safe 
as an egg on a parade ground We 
would argue that, driven responsi- 
bly, a bike is no more dangerous 
than any other form of transport 
The modem- machine has pow- 
erful brakes, agility and good road- 
holding. Our heavy load made it 
impossible to use anything ap- 
proaching the BMW’s top speed of 
130 mph, but we were not in a race. 
Also motor cyclists have the 
ad vantage of getting a higher 
viewpoint than most cars and, on 
the Continent, do not suffer from 
the car drivers’ disadvant age jo f 
trying to spot on-coming traffic 
from the right-hand seat before 
trying to overtake. 

Towards Bran tome, where the 
weather at Iasi started to improve, 
we began to enjoy tbe whisper of 

warm air and the smell from damp 

fields of hay drying under the first 
sunshine of the holiday. We sat in 
the open hear the superb ancient 
church and watched people arriv- 
ing from, the north, bunking at the 
bright sunlig ht. The two wind 
vanes on the public lavatories in 
the town seemed to symbolize our 
despair at the weather. Each was 
pointing in a different. direction. 

It was at Beynac on the, Dor-

In a car you simply hop out of 

the door and dash for cover in wet 
weather. On a bike the process is a 
spectacular stripping of layers 
until a wall of bulky waterproofs 
has grown on the saddle. We 
entertained a small restaurant 
with this performance, enjoyed a 
meal of delicious mushroom 
crepes champignons and then 
relayered ourselves for the next 
few kilometres. 

However bad, the journey was 
an improvement on earlier years 
when a British bike spewed oil on 
our legs and left us red-eyed and 

wind-blasted. The modem way 
was quite different The BMW had 
a neat fairing that channelled the 
main brunt of the weather away 
from us like the bow of a yacht 
parting the sea. Full-face helmets 
with visors gave snug protection 
so that, with a caremlly placed 
towel stopping any errant trickle 
of water down the neck, a rider 
could comfortably seal himself 
- against the foulest weather.

pleasure in being so close to the

carbon-fibre rods. 

“A hotel, any hotel”, said the

cost of a warm bed with crisp 

lour that we first felt the real 
warmth of a French- • 
summer.Cruising along the nar- 
row winding rends of the Dor-

sweetly up to the square m the

across the valley. 

There was camping a la ferme in

The fact that off-season pro- 
motional fores are still on sale 
in summer — when seats are 
normally at a premium — re- 
veals the extent of the airlines' 
dilemma on the transatlantic 
rentes. This year more seats 
have been added than ever 
before yet passenger traffic 
has slumped; this has resulted 
in the unprecedented variety of 
discount deals and cheap seats 
announced this week.- With 
special offers around to entice 
all categories of traveller, 1986 
simply most be the year to visit 
the United States. 

For families travelling to- 
gether it is worth looking at 
the added-value deals market- 
ed by the major American 
flight specialists. These firms 
charge the normal APEX (Ad- 
vance Purchase Excursion) 
fore hot, at the same time, 
throw in a collection of free 
incentives which, for a family 
of four, could be worth hun- 
dreds of pounds. 

For example, British 
Airways's Pounds tret cher is 
offering car rental for a mere 
£1 per week (hot remember to 
allow extra for insurance, tax 
and petrol) and subsidized 
hotel accommodation at £26 a 
night for a forge room. 

American Airpfon offers a 
range of car rental and hotel 
give-aways throughout the 
US, hot its June “Sommer 
Son" offer in Florida really is 
speciaL Two people pay £299 
each for seven (or £389 for 14) 
days which includes scheduled 
flights to Miami pins hotel 
accommodation and car hire 
for your entire stay. Quite a 
bargain when yon consider the 
APEX fore alone costs £378. 

More seats 
for your 


Pan Am Fly-Drive charges 
the APEX fore then lets yon 
choose from a range of incen- 
tives which indudes children's 
fores at a flat £99 each (when 
accompanied by two ad alts), 
up to three weeks' free car 
rental and free admission to 
Disneyland attractions. 

TWA also has a £99 child 
fare and, along with BA and 
British Caledonian, is selling 
stand-by fores throughout the 
summer. Stand-by fares allow 
yon to book on the day of 
travel and they are ideal for 
independent travellers seeking 
flexibility, who do not want to 
be tied to specific dates or 
arrival/departure points. The 
fores range from £149 one-way 
to New York, £179 to Miami, 
£209 to Chicago and £249 to 
LA/San Fraudsco/Seattle. 

Another good bet for indi- 
viduals is the IPEX (Instant 
Purchase) fores sold by East- 
ern Airlines which charges 
£159 one-way to Miami IPEX 
fores can only be booked 
within three days of travel and, 
as this fore is ideal for 
stimulating last-minute busi- 
ness, other carriers look set to 
introduce IPEX fores this 

Virgin Atlantic's APEX 
fores are keen at £338 mid- 

week/£358 weekend to New 
York, hot to Miami the 
£378/£398 rate is foe same as 
offered by Eastern. People 
Express's fores to New York 
of £166 each way for Economy 
and £300 for Business class 
are free of booking restric- 
tions. People’s Business class 
fore is good value if yon seek 
extra comfort and attention. 

As foe airlines' marketing 
boffins move heaven and earth 
to fill those seats, we ran 
expect to see more cut-price 
offers in foe coming months. 
The problem for the consumer 
is bring able to keep abreast of 
what's going on. 

With sod) fierce competi- 
tion for your custom, yon may

You do not drive to Knoydart: 
the last road runs out 15 miles 
to the east of the estate, giving 
way to a footpath that 
clamber* 2 j 000 feet above 
Loch Nevis in the North West : 
Highlands of Scotland. To 
reach the peninsula, called, 
with only modest exaggera- 
tion, the last Highland wilder- 
ness. visitors take the feny. 

She was waiting, swaying 
rustily against Mallaig quay 
when we arrived, still dazzled 
by our drive through Glencoe 
where mountains bad risen 
through cigar-rings of morn- 
ing mist like spent volcanoes. 
As we crossed the Sound of 
Sieat, shiny in mock-Mediter- 
ranean blue, Inverie, Knoy- 
darfs sole village, played at 
being Portmerion. 

The ferry’s notice, however, 
saying that its owners coukl 
not accept “any responsibility 
whatsoever for death, injury, 
loss or damage", warned that 
this was no package cruise. 
The point of the disclaimer 
became dear when my car, 
slung on board by ropes and 
crane, was revved over 
Knoydart’s stone-strewn 
shore to disembark. 

Knoydart’s history is as 
gnarled as its beach. In the last 
century a greedy chieftan 
transported a tenth ofiis 3,000 
population to Canada to dear 
the land for sheep forming. 
Then 40 years ago, a laird in 
turn banished the sheep in 
order to turn Knoydart into a 
private shooting estate. The 
crofters, in open rebellion 
against their Nazi-sympathiz- 
ing Old Etonian master, re- 
sorted to the land-raid tactics 
of their grandfathers and 
staked out farms for them- 
selves. Inevitably, a court of 
inquiry found against them 
and Krioy dart’s depopulation 

We soon discovered who 

was left A hippy drove the 
tractor. A dilettante in a 
guernsey jumper ran the pub, 
constantly fearful of running 
out of beer (foe pub has since 
changed hands). Sloanes ftoo- 
rayed down foe pier, jostling 
in the back of Land-Rovers 
like piglets on the way to 
market. Many of the ghillies, 
the most congenial of the 
inhabitants, were over only 
for the summer. 

But once -out of Inverie, a 
saunter of about five seconds, 
found : the remaining 


52,000 acres not only deserted 
but beautiful A' friend and I 
climbed Ladhar Bheirin, one 
of Knoydart's four Munros 
(mountains of over 3,000ft). 
In drizzle, we alternated be- 
tween perspiring under our 
kagools and shivering in tbe 
wind. We reached foe peak at 
five in the evening content to 
sip from our Thermoses and 
see nothing Suddenly, as if a 
magic slate had been wiped, 
foe fog cleared. Loch Nevis, 
tbe Loch of Hell, and Loch 
Hourn, the Loch of Heaven, 
appeared, silver and gold. On 
a peak below, antlered stags 
out-stared us. 

Another day we began to 
walk tbe 30-mile coast, fancy- 
ing we saw osprey swoop over 
the waves and seals flop over 
rocky islets. At a river too 
deep to cross fully shod and. 
too slippery to negotiate bare- 
foot, we waded across sockless 
in our walking boots. In a tiny 
hamlet, we inspected what we 
took to be the one-time home 
of Jimmy and Roddy, tbe 
“Invemiseran boys" who, in 
the 1930s, would walk to 
inverie to play the violin and 
melodeon at foe annual 
ghillies' bail.

This summer, everything in 
the market garden is so late

supplying most of the straw-

-It was therefore fascinating to 
compare so many great Petrus 
vintages side tty side and to pick out 
the Pomerol high-flyers. 

The first wine was the fine ’82 
vintage, which I have only tasted 
once before — at Petrus, when it was 
just six months old and still in cask. 
Even at such a youthful age it was a 
magnificent faultless dam. and it 
was disappointing to find it rather 
dumb and closed-in at this evenL 
The ’82 Fftrus is certainly a great 
wine, it has a firm, tannic, structured 
fruitiness with a backbone of spicy 
oak and an almost Californian green 
pepper aspect to it; but it needs at 
least a decade in the cellar to reach its

wine needs time, though not as long 
as the '82. The ’80 Petrus — a good 
wine from a difficult year — had a 
sweet voluptuous style and was 
easily the most drinkable P&rus 
from the '80s. 

Next came a trio from the 70s. I 
enjoyed the rich, austere, almost 
truffiy 79 though that, too, needs 
time; but I felt that the '78, wiih its 
deliciously rich, forward, smoky 
taste, just had the edge. The '70, with 
a ripe, truffiy bouquet and a firm, 
cedary, tobacco-like palate, is — like 
the '79 - a classic Petrus vintage. 

We finished the tasting with a rich, 
gamey-truffly mouthful or two of the 
'66, followed by the sensational and 
seductive '62 — definitely the star of 
the evening. The big, beefy, robust 
76 and the rich charming '67 
accompanied the meal

better still a metal tray and 
freeze iL covered and as fast as 
possible, until it is almost 
firm. Turn the ice out into a 
bowl and whisk it vigorously 
to break down the ice crystals, 
then return iLto the freezer 
until firm. 

Alternatively, freeze the ice 
in a sorbetiere, following the 
manufacturer's instructions. 

Thin, crisp shortcake bis- 
cuits are irresistible with ices,

Gooseberries baked with sug-

with icing sugar.

Makes about 50 

85 g (3 oz) softened butter 
140 g (5 oz) caster sugar 
1 egg yolk 

A few drops vanilla extract 
170g(6oz) plain flour 

Cream the butter and sugar 
until the mixture is pale and 
fluffy. Whisk in the egg yolk 
and vanilla, then stir m the 
flour to make a stiff dough. 
Chill the dough well before 
rolling it out. 

Roll out the dough thinly 
and use cutters to shape the 
biscuits. Arrange the short- 
cake thins on greased and 
floured baking sheets and bake 
them in a preheated moderate 
oven (175 degrees C/350 de-

Top designers of film, fashion 
and fantasy will this week be 
telling America what makes 
British design the best in the 

At a five-day international 
design conference which opens 
tomorrow in Aspen, Colorado, 
several of oar most distin- 
guished arbiters of style will 
present aspects of onr national 
life, from art and architecture 
to gracious gardens and the 
grimaces of Spitting Image, all 
of which affect onr attitudes to 
the products we make. 

Here a selection of the 
trendsetters describe some of 
onr unique characteristics, and 
also choose a product which 
can be bought today as an 

A rt and design are not 
academic and you can't 
measure them in those 
terms, says world leading art- 
ist David Hockney. 

“In the old days people who 
went to art school worked 
with their hands and eyes and 
produced good things. When 
the Royal College of Art asked 
me for advice recently I told 
them to abolish their depart- 
ment of general studies and 
academic qualifications and 
start to leach drawing serious- 
ly. They thought 1 was joking. 

“Doesn't all good design 
come from nature? That's why 
we should learn to draw 

The very best of British 

property, and from nature. As 
for objects I like chairs; there's 

for objects I like chairs: there's 
no such thing as a comfortable 
chair that's ugly." 

Sir Roy Strong, director of 
the Victoria and Albert Muse- 
um, says: "The British are 
subdued, understated, with a 
strong sense of the past and, 
above all, they like decoration 
rather than form. You have 
only to look at the way British 
women use jewellery: they 
hang it on themselves rather 
than wear it. 

"In the late 1960s, people 
came out of art schools and 
turned to craft, which is very 
decorative. They haven’t gone 
back into industry because of 
the lack of status given to 

On the eve of a major US conference, top 
designers choose their British favourites 

designers and the inability of 
manufacturers to produce a 
quality product on time. 

“The sort of things 1 would 
love to have around me are 
silver by Robert Welsh, fab- 
rics by Collier Campbell and 
cutlery by David Mellor. I'm 
also devoted to my Kenwood 
mixer and I wear my Gerda 
Hockingcr cufflinks all the 

Sir Hagh Casson, architect 

and past president of the 
Royal Academy, says: “I agree 
with George Orwell who said 
the English are very nervous 
of rhetoric in anything: in 
speech, dress, architecture, 
paintin g, music. Therefore 
their love of understatement, 
irony, self-deprecation — dull- 
ness, if you like — are qualities 
which come out in their art 
"The sort of discreet, effi- 
cient design that people of my 

«neration find appealing — a 
Gordon Russell desk and a 
19th-century fireplace — is 
deeply boring to the young. 
But one of the objects I still 
find satisfying is __ the 
Anglepoise lamp which is an 
interesting design as wen as 
being an efficient tooL" 

The most successful British 
products often have a very 
dear heritage and a cachet 
which is so light by the rest of 
the world, says Kenneth 
Grange, of the design consul- 
tancy Pentagram, who is the 
conference's joint organizer. 

“The Range Rover exempli- 
fies an unlikely product winch 
has been successful in a mass 
market. Its roots are obvious 
— it is deariy a development 
from the Land-Rover— and it 
has quality, robustness and 
durability of style which make 
it attractive to a wide age 
spectrum of many national- 
ities fora long time:" 

Peter York, “trendologist" 
and creator of the Sloane 
Rangers, will look at punk and 
pageantry in Britain. He says: 
“Design is too abstract as a 
subject- When it is translated 
into sex and money, then ix 
becomes interesting. 

“I don't think things’ are 
what we are best at We are 
good at clothes, retailing, 
graphics and 'pastness’. The 

best bits of British design are 
Sc PanTs, nnyzhtag from 
Sheraton’s pattern book. Jag- 
uar cars and Anthony Price — 
be is dose to genres." 

Patricia Ro b erts , creator of 
modern knitwear and a- De- 
sign Award winner, wffl talk 
about the d esign s &at seeded 
the knitwear revolution. • 
“British car design is good, 
but otherwise the best Briftsh 
design is usually done by 
individuals, not by compa- 
nies. Creative en trep rene ur s 
who don't need to worry about 
the back-up of a btg maao- 
fectmer succeed best. jf 

“Some of the things we bare 
at home are rabies by Peter 
Banks of Confetti, door furni-

and the sew Dmaoett torch.”

Soft and intriguing 
palette of mysteries 

“Beth Chatto's unusual 
weeds” is how other stand- 
holders jokingly describe the 
subtle and mysterious collec- 
tions on the Beth Chatto 
display at Chelsea. The banter 
is good-natured and the epon- 
ymous proprietor accepts it 
cheerfully - after all you could 
paper a wall of her office with 
Chelsea gold medal certifi- 
cates. The soft colours and 
intriguing forms from the Beth 
Chatto palette have attracted 
many gardeners who are dis- 
mayed by the brash, outsized 
blooms which are standard 
fare, and the one-woman en- 
terprise which started modest- 
ly in Essex 20 years ago is now 
a prospering business. 

It is difficult to believe that 
only 25 years ago these gar- 
dens were considered 
unfarmable wasteland- its arid 
gravel and waterlogged bog 
inhospitable to plant life. But 
it should come as no surprise 
that Beth Chatto has become 
an expert in plants which 
thrive in difficult situations. 
The marshy hollow is now an 
extensive water garden, 
ranged around a series of 
inter-connecting pools, while 
a Mediterranean garden flour- 
ishes on the dry slopes. Anoth- 
er speciality is the range of 
plants for shady conditions: 
There are geaming astrantias, 
several kinds of Dicentra. 
their flowers like jewelled 

Beth Chatto nurtures 
her customers as 
gently as the plants 
she grows, writes 
Francesca Greenoak 

the hostas and tiarellas and. 
later in the season, a remark- 
able show of those witch- 
plan is, the toad fillies. 
(T rievrtis) with their strange, 
purple, freckled blooms. 

There is a phenomenally 
large stock list. The regular 
catalogue carries about a thou- 
sand plants and there is an “ex 
directory list” which offers 
another thousand or so stock 
(always enquire if there is 

them with the current stock. 
Many gardeners are often 
disappointed to find that even 
plants of the same species and 
variety can differ in form and 
colour. But such plants as her 
Geranium phaeum show how 
Beth Chatto has built her 
reputation on selecting partic- 
ularly fine forms and breeding 
true. At the same time she is 
always experimenting. A re- 
cent acquisition from a Ger- 
man friend is a most beautiful 
Ajuga (bugle) with dense pink 
rather than blue flowers. This 
plant will have to prove itself 
in her garden and if it per- 
forms well, it will be propagat- 
ed for sale in the future.

When a neighbour's herd of 
frisky buBocks decided to visit 
my garden a month ago, tha 
worst casualties w ore the 
lettuces. Of the whole crop 
only two battered remnants 

Overcompensafing. I sowed atf 
the lettuce seed 1 could find 
-indutfing some of very • 
dubious age -and I am -.

lettuce I have tasted. Of the ’ 
modem commercial varieties, I 
have COS titfe Gera and - 
Salad Bovri. a family favourite 
whose curled leaves you . 
can pick throughout me 
season. f 

You may wonder what i * 

sftafl do with himdreds of 
lettuce seedtings. The old 
varieties and Salad Bowl are 
quite decorative enough to 
put in flower beds if there* 
not room in the vegetable 
patch, or if we are sated and 
even sturdy Salad Bowl is - 
bolting, we have two ducks 
who adore lettuce above afi 
else. And in case readers 
brought up on die Ropsy 
Bunroes are curious: Yes, the 
eating of too many lettuces 
is soporific. 

It can take five years 
of care before plants 
are ready for sale 

something you are particularly 
seeking.) Orders of over 25 
plants of a single species are 
refused, and customers are 
encouraged to come to the 
nursery where they can talk to

with her a sheet of paper on 
which she had sellotaped spec- 
imen leaves and flowers of 
Chatto plants she had bought 

Her staff are equally moti- 
vated. During a training which 
lasts three to five years, nearly 
all of them learn the many 
forms of plant propagation. 
They grow from seed, runners, 
suckers, offsets, make stem 
root and leaf cuttings, and this 
year they tried out micro- 
propagation on one of their 

hosias. Those who. quibble a slartlln& j y blue Howm rontio .

wrote Hugh MacDiarmid, and 
it should not now be necessary 
to make the case for 
MacDiarmi<fs stature. Antho- 
ny Burgess has called him 
unequivocally the greatest 
poet in any branch of the 
English language this century. 
Yet one fears that h is still 
necessary, despite the publica- 
tion of The Complete Poems

as a Penguin Modern CZfajaq r 

It is not altogether surpris- 
ing. MacDiannid is a daunt- 
ing poet A 'good deal of his 
best work is in Scots, and what 
is generally believed to be his 
masterpiece, A Drunk Man 
Looks at the Thistle, is written 
in an ambitious Scots, not 
always immediately compre- 
hensible to Scotsmen, let 
alone Americans or the En- 
glish. Even in Scotland he may 
still be a poet more admired 
than read. His later work, in 
what be called Synthetic En- 
‘“sh (foy which he meant that 
drew from any variety of 
the language that suited his 
immediate purpose), is at once 
nervous, iweDectual, clotted 
and verbose. He was a poet of 
ideas, and ' the En glish have 
always shunned ideas in

immediately apparent than

Alan Bold admits all this in 
his book which is a model of 
expository criticism. He is no

weaknesses, he shows conclu-

MacDiarmid consistently did,

neo-Plaionism - MacDiarmieFs 
unending search for a lan- 
guage that could contain all 
language is a search for the 
Platonic ideal 

As Wordsworth turned back 
to the language of common 
speech in reaction to the 
poericism of the 1 8th century, 
so MacDiarmid, believing 
that most of the important 
words were killed in the First 
World War, turned back to 
Scots as “a vast unutilized 
mass of lapsed observation, 
made by minds whose atti- 
tudes to experience, and 
whose speculative and imagi- 
native tendencies were quite 
different from any posable to 
Englishmen and Anglicized 
Scots today”. It is an inchoate 
Marcel Proust — a Dostoev- 
skian debris of ideas — an 
inexhaustible quarry of subtle 
and significant sound.

The Autobfoaraohv and Other 

(Penguin Classics, £2-95} 

Born to a Boston candlemaker, one 
of 17 children, educated for scarcely 
two years of formal schooling, 
Franklin was an interesting, civilized 
and cosmopolitan fellow, as well as 
an example to all of us as a quiet 
American. His Autobiography was 
begun as improving anecdotes for his 
son. It is depressing that we don’t 
seem to have men of Iris stature 
around these days,

The accelerating rate of change and 
learning has made the compilation of 
general encyclopaedias all but im- 
possible. Only a newspaper, with its 
endless space (huge coverage of each 
year) and constant updating, can 
hope to be a digest or index of events 
and thought 

Readers scan headlines and sum- 
maries to decide whether to delve for 
detail and explanation, or pass over. 
This allows one to ignore articles 
entitled “Gronndniit staff finds 
wafer” and concentrate upon tire 
“Wife kitted in a dream” Coring a 
nightmare ahoat assassins (1919). 

most readers are presumably 

drawn to the front page and Diary, 
some items seem hidden from the 
. intense gaze: appropriately, in the 
case of the lady who offered to knit 
nether garments for baboons she 
thought were son burnt. Bat book- 
format discourages fire averting of 

Many anthologies could be drawn 
from The Times, but amazement is 
neither a constant nor an adequate 
theme. Spontaneity and juxtaposi- 
tion, the pleasures of a discourse on 
the yo-yo amid the home news, are 
sacrificed by taking reports from 
their contexts and advertising them 
as “amazing”. What amazes ns 
changes from year to year, but this is 
a dull representation of so far- 
reaching a newspaper. Maa walking 
on the moon, for example, is more 

endoringly amazing than prisoners 

counterfeiting $10 
burglars with 

biOs in jail or 

Amazing Times was selected from 
articles published since 1945. 
Winkworth sensibly chose most of 
this sequel from papers between 
1918 and 1945. Some curiosities beg 
important questions. Who could be 
sore that Band’s demonstration of 
“The Televisor” in 1926 was signifi- 
cant, bat Albert Sanvant’s “Crash- 
Proof Aeroplane” of 1932 was not? 
Though tbe historical is more inter- 
esting than the hysterical, reports of 
The Battle Of Britain and the 
discovery of penicillin belong in a 
more serioos book.

The peatFrench directwJean 
Renoir's enforced -sojourn in 
the United States as a refugee 
from the. Nazis' was not an 
entirely happy one, pven his 
unformtiarity with the ways of 
the American studios ana an 
initially tentative grasp of tbe 
English language. 
f Yet he still managed to 
make two films which rank 
with his best, entirely different 
in style but linked by Renoir’s 
affirmation of the human 
spirit They make up an 
outstanding double bill' on 
BBC2 today: The Southerner 
(2-3.30pm) and The Diary of a 
Chambermaid (3.304.55pm).' 
.. Made in 1945 and the most 
successful of Renoir’s .five 
American pic±ures,TfteSbuiA- 
emer is the study of a poor 

Texas family trying to make a 
the land 

living from the land . and 
finding both the elements and 
its fellow human beings 
ranged against it 
The film has been called an 
epic but it esdhews-epic di- 
mensions. Renoir lets the 
subject speak for itseff neither 

milking it for easy sympathy 
nor turning it into a political 
tract. Though set in the Amer- 
ican south. The Southerner is 
an essay on humanity that 
transcends time and place. 

Its hero is Sam Tucker, the 
simple cotton' former who 
even J when his crop is de- 
stroyed by torrential rain still 
refuses to leave the land for a 
possibly less hazardous exis- 
tence in the city. He is played 
by Zachary Soon, himself a 
southerner and appearing is 
only his second film after a 
triumphant debut in The 
Mask of Dimitrios. 

The Diary of a Chamber- 
maid , made immediately after 
The Southerner, is-an intrigu- 
ing mongrel: a French setting 
and subject with Hollywood 
stars. Two of them. Paulette 
Goddard and her then hus- 
band, Burgess Meredith, were 
also the fifin’s producers. 

Goddard is Celestine, the 
maid of the title, who takes up 
her duties on a country estate 
and skilfully exploits the ten- 
sions and jealousies of the 
household ip her own ends. 

The film has affinities with 
Renoir’s masterpiece. La 
Regie da Tea, employing the 
country house as a metaphor 
for French society and sug-

Dream with Jrri Ky Ban's 
Return to me Strange Land (Fri 
and June 21). 

D ancer and choreog- 
rapher Michael 
Clark is .24. This 
week, . his ballet, 
Swamp, is to bepremiered by 
the Ballet Rambert at Sadler’s 
Wells. In September, his own 
troupe, Michael Clark and 
Company, is (hie to appear on 
that stage for the first time. As 
a leading icon of 198% youth 
culture, Michael Clark is in 
the process of being embraced 
by the Establishment 
Less likea breath of fresh air 
than like a rush of amyl nitrate 
in the acceptable face of 
dance, Clark takes traditional 
forms and explodes them into 
new patterns, challenges our 
frames of reference to provide 
broader boundaries. He em- 
ploys a mixture of . punk, 
electronic and rock music; 
commissions costumes which 
have incl udedbotiomless leo- 
tard^ black leather jock-straps 
and boys in tutus; and, as a 
choreographer, demands -that 
bis dancers contort their bod- . 
ies into postures that are less 
than swanlike. 

As is often- the case with 
successful innovators, this 
flouting of convention is root- 
ed in an expert command of 
the basics. As a dancer, Mi- 
chael Cark possesses a charis- 
ma, energy and grace that turn 
„even a crowded stage iritp'his 
own platform. He joined The 
Royal Ballet School' at 13, 
leaving his home in Aberdeen, 
where he had studied Scottish 
dance since the age of four. 
“My teacher was a Scottish 
celebrity, and it was always 
assumed that I would eventu- 
ally take-over his school”, he 
recalls. *‘I went to The Royal 
Ballet initially for a year- to 
improve my posture for Scot- 
tish dancing After three weeks 
I knew I wanted to stay. It was 
so glamorous ... coming 
from Aberdeen." 

Now a glamorous creature 
himself, he is surprisingly tall 
for a ballet dancer, with close- 
cropped -hair-and air androgy- 
nous face — smooth skin, large 
hazel eyes and a sculpted 
mouth — like- that of a child 
who has recently had .his 
fingers in a jam jar. -It is a 
discLnr^rting amalgam of in-, 
nocence and knowingness. 

Singled out early on as a 
star, Michael Clark left The 
Royal Ballet to “ join ' the 
Rambert at 17. There, he 
swiftly became leading dancer, 
performing in a number of 
specially, created works by 
Richard Alston before leaving 

With the premiere 
of his ballet > 
at Sadler’s Wells, 
Michael Clark ... 
puts one foot . 
finnly mtothe 

for an independent career. 
Alston, now director of- the 
Rambert, has -commissioned

It was the more accessible first 
half of a programme which 
also included the now- info- 
mous New Puritans, In which 
Clark and Company tottered

This group is a key element 
m Michael ' Clark's work, as 
are die mercurial demands of 
contemporary style.. While' 
Clark was launching an inde- 
pendent career, a band of 
young British . designers, 
straight out of college, were 
being lauded by the New York 
and European fashion- worlds. 
Everyone was talking about a 
new "swinging'’ London r- a 
revisited 1960s where the 
clubs and clothes and bands 
were. thriving. The cat-walks 
were filled with gender-defy- 
ing' items — men. in the gauzy 
shirts of John Galliano, the

and the unisex athletic designs 
ofBodyraap. Michael Clark is 
one of the gang; . 

goldfish. "Most people pre- 
ferred the first naif of the 
programme to the second so-I 

decided to develop my work 
in the direction of tfre tetteif 
' The music for Swamp is-by 
Bruce Gilbert of The Wire; a 
band which escaped mass 
acclaim but is highly rated by 
punk aficionados, and Clatfc is 
pleased with the company’s 
response to the ballet- “They 
are very opot . There’s a lot of 
confidence in me!, and they 
thist me. Others donX and 

that brings out the devil in me. 
More conventional compa- 
nies often have a different 
aesthetic — ' I fin’d Tm asked to 
work for the wrong reasons” 
Such . as?-“For the attention 
I’ve been ‘getting and the fact 
that 1 have a-difterent kind of 
credibility- 1 think’.it’s boring 
to ted- that you have to- carry 
on doing. the -same, thing. I 
don’t want' to have to' live up 
io ‘expieciationi I want, to 
make new expectations." 

For this reason he is looking 
forward; to performing -at. 
Sadler’s Wells at a time when : 
he wonders ’whether ballet in 
general “isn’t a bit of a dead 
end. Everything I’ve' seen 
recently hasrlefi me cold." * , -

At first sight, the statement on the nature of 
Christian befiefby the House of Bishops of the 
Church of England looks like a resounding 
declaration of orthodoxy. “All of us accept 
—that this house acknowledges and upholds 
this belief (in the empty tomb and the virginal 
conception of Jesus) as expressing the faith of 
the Church of England.” 

And dial may indeed express the mind of 
the church. But in the accompanying exposi- 
tion of the statement it turns out that on just 
these beliefs “divergent views” are “reflected 
in the thinking of individual bishops”. And 
that is, the implication goes, quite all right 
1 propose to show that it is not all right; and 
that the statement foils into logical contradic- 
tion on this matter, if so interpreted. 

Some bishops give the word “expressing” a 
very odd sense indeed. The Oxford English 
Dictionary gives the meaning of “express” as 
“to pul into words” or “reveal”. Thus the 
obvious reading is that the account of the 
empty tomb puts into words what the church 
believes. ■' 

But some, bishops take the word “express” 
in quite a different sense, to mean somet hing 
like: “The story of the empty tomb is a 
symbolic representation of the belief which the 
church holds, namely, the belief that Christ is 

This enables them to say that the empty 
tomb and virginal conception are symbols of 
faith in the resurrection and incarnation, 
respectively. But we do not have to take them 
as historically true. 

The blunt truth is that, while all the bishops 
agree .that the incarnation and resurrection 
happened, sohie think that the stories associat- 
ed with those beliefs are non-faisioricai. But to 
say that the stories “express” the foith of the 
church, though they may weD be folse, is to en- 
ter ah Alice in Wonderland world, where 
words can. mean whatever you like: 

' Who in their right mind would say; “These 
words express my belief, but of course what 
they say is false”? Anyway, it is not the story or 
legend of the empty tomb which is said to ex- 
i press the foith ofthe church. It is the belief, and 
a belief is an acceptance that some proposition 
is true. It cannot be said by the utterer to be 
folse and remain his belief at all. 

What the bishops have faflerf to see is the 
enormous logical difference between saying (a) 
“This house upholds a belief as a belief whidi 
expresses the -faith of the church”; and (b) 
i“This house upholds the belief that belief in 
the empty tomb is an expression of the foith of 

the church”. 

In (aX the belief whidi the bouse upholds is 

assent to the proposition that the tomb was 
empty. But in (b), the belief which the house 
upholds is a second order belief namely, a 
belief that some other belief, belief that the 
tomb was empty, is an expression of faith (and 
so perhaps not the only or a necessary one). 

Some bishops think they have assented to 
(bX but they have actually assented to (a). 
Even to assent to (b) would have been almost 
wilfully misleading; but to assent to (a) entails 
that all bishops are committed to publicly 
defending the truth of the empty tomb and 
virginal conception of Jesus. 

In foci, the clause, we “uphold this belief as 
expressing the foith of the church” does not 
weaken the sense of “belief”; it strengthens it. 
The house not only upholds the belief as some 
son of optional extra. It upholds it as 
expressing the foith of the church; that is, as an 
essential part of the church's foith. 

If the account of the empty tomb was a 
story, then it might be folse and yet be an ex- 
pression of a truth. It is possible to hold that 
the beliefs of the elite can be expressed in 
poetic form for the sake of the peasants, 
though it is not a very pleasant view to bold. 
But that is not what is being said. 

The account of the empty tomb is said to be 
a belief; by definition, it is to be assented to, as 
true. It is therefore not open to any bishop who 
signed this statement to say that Jesus had a 
human father or that the tomb was not empty. 
How, then, can some of the bishops be said to 
hold “divergent views” on these issues? 

A last desperate move is to say that all 
bishops accept that the house ofbishops thinks 
the empty tomb is an essential part of foith; but 
they do not all do so as individuals. Bui clause 
six of the statement says: “We accept 
wholeheartedly our mutual responsib il i ty . . .as 
bishops for guarding, expounding and teach- i 

iog the foith”. 

So having defined certain beliefs as express- 
ing the foith ofthe church, the door is closed to 
private variations of view on these matters. 

The bishops have not yet put their house in 
order. They have issued a 39-page logical 
contradiction. However, the contradiction can 
be removed relatively easily. It requires 
deleting only those parts of paragraphs SO and 
62 which concede the legitimacy of divergent 
views among the bishops. 

This should not need any great heart- 
searching, since it will only be the removal of a 
logical inconsistency. I do rather wonder, 
however, whether that is really wbat the 
Church of England wished to say.

The Right Rev E. B. Hen- 
derson, DSC. DD, Bishop of 
Bath and Wells from 1960 to 
1 975. died yesterday at the age 
of 76. 

Not intellectually gifted, 
and with limited gifts as a 
teacher. Henderson neverthe- 
less made a phenomenal im- 
pression, both in his office to 
which he brought a disciplined 
spirit of prayer, and m the 
county of Somerset. 

In a conservative part of the 
country he played the grand 
seigneur to perfection. In ap- 
pearance and style he was 
every inch a bishop. His 
personality exactly suited the 
medieval moated palace 
which was his home for fifteen 

He also ted a flair for the 
dramatic, as for instance, 
when, as President of the Bath 
and West, be descended from 
the sky onto the show ground 
by helicopter. 

Edward Barry Henderson 
was the second son ofthe Very 
Rev E. L. Henderson. Dean of 
Salisbury. He was born on 
March 22, 1910 and educated 
at Radley, Trinity College. 
Cambridge, and Cuddesdon 
Theological College. 

Ordained to the curacy of St 
Gabriel, Pimlico, in 1934 he 
quickly showed that he had 
great pastoral gifts and his 
charm and deep spirituality 
drew many people to seek his 
I advice. 

In 1939 he became Rector 
of Holy Trinity, Ayr, a period 
of eight years which was 
interrupted by wartime 
service) as Naval Chaplain in 
the Second World War. He 
was awarded the DSC in 1944, 
for gallantry in action, while 
serving as chaplain of a war- 
ship off the Normandy 

In 1947 be became Vicar of 
St Paul’s, Knightsbridge, 
where, aided by his dumping 
wife, Hester, whom he had 
married in 1935, his ministry 
came to fruition. 

As a spiritual adviser he was 
in great demand. And when 
dunng his last two years in 
Westminster be became the 
Rural Dean be showed what 
that office could really mean 
in terms of pulling together, 
into a praying and working 
partnership, people of stout 
individuality in worship and 

When in 1955 he was 
invited to become Bishop 
Suffragan of Tewkesbury he 
was able to use his gifts for an 
even wider circle of people. He 
was immensely happy living 
in the little village of 
Tibbeaon but exercising a 
ministry which extended far 
beyond the limits of the 
Diocese of Gloucester; and 
when he left Gloucester foe 
Matron of an old people's 

home said that her people 
would be desolate; in all his 
busy life he made lime each 
week to visit and talk to them. 

Before his appointment in- 
1960 to the Diocese of Bath 
and Wells, he had never 
visited Wells, and be entered 
into this lovely heritage with 

He opened the gates of his 
palace to visitors and delight- 
ed m showing them round his 
home. He knew all the clergy 
and their wives by their 
Christian names; when they 
were sick he was at their 
bedsides, at home or in hospi- 
tal. at a moment's notice. 

It was widely known that his 
gothic private chapel was in 
daily use and that his prayer 
life was highly disciplined. He 
was in his element in the 
confessional and in conduct- 
ing retreats. 

He was a keen cricketer and 
led the Gloucester Diocesan 
Cricket team frequently to 
victory. He also sailed, fished 
and shot, and would some- 
times retire to enjoy a few days 
rest in his little croft tn 

Occasionally his activities 
would cause a wry smile to 
those with somewhat old- 
fashioned ideas of a Bishop's 
dignity, as when he went go- 
karting or boating in the 
palace moat; but such enjoy- 
ments as these came so natu- 
rally to him that they were 
always undertaken with grace. 

Nevertheless he could be 
stem upon occasion. Woe 
betide anyone who presumed 
to forget that be was a Bishop 
ofthe Church of God. 

His wife to whom his 
marriage was an ideally happy 
one, died last year. They ted 
one son and two daughters.

in collaboration with bis for-

ously declining the excesses, 
and so produced an all-round 
picture in just proportion; the 
book is so comprehensive, 
sensible and well-balanced 
that it is the best introduction 
to the period for any student 
of history. 

The loss of his right leg in a

child ruled out the possibility 
of military service in 1939. 
But Steven Watson was buoy- 
antly optimistic with no trace 
of self-pity and he regarded his 
disability, as well as the acci- 
dents to which he sometimes 
seemed peculiarly prone, with 
mock-rueful unconcern. 

He was a big man in every 
way, morally as well as physi- 
cally. He had a warmth and 
generosity of mind, a fresh- 
ness and freedom from cam. 
which made him stand out in 
any company.

21 killed 
in Sri 

Colombo (AP) — Twenty- 
one men, women and child- 
ren, 19 of them Tamils, were 
killed yesterday when men in 
Sri Lankan Army uniforms 
stormed a village near the 
north-eastern city of Trin- 

Most of the homes in 
Ichchilampaiti, 22 miles south 
of Trincomalee, were set 
ablaze. Residents of Trinco- 
malee reported the shooting 
deaths, which were later con- 
firmed by an official of the Sri 
Lankan military’s joint opera- 
tions command headquarters 
in Colombo. 

A number of villagers were 
believed to have fled into the 
dense forest swrounding the 
community or to nearby vil- 
lages to escape the attackers. 
The number of survivors was 
not immediately known. 

The military official said the 
attackers wore army uniforms 
but said it had not been 
determined if they were sol- 
diers or men disguised as 

The Trincomalee Citizens 
Committee said it believed the 
raid was a reprisal for bomb 
explosions on Wednesday in 
two buses in Trincomalee that 
killed more than 20 people, 
most of them Sinhalese. 

The bus bombings were 
blamed on Tamil rebels, who 
have been waging a guerrilla 
campaign for an independent 
state in the Northern and 
Eastern provinces. 

Tamils, who make up JS 
percent of Sri Lanka's lo mil- 
lion population, complain 
that they are discriminated 
against by the nation's major- 
ity Sinhalese. Most of the 
Tamils are Hindus, while the 
Sinhalese are Buddhists. 

Ichctiilampaui is the latest 
in a series of liny communities 
in the north-eastern Trinco- 
malee district to be raided in 
the past two months. More 
than 75 villagers have died in 
the attacks. 

Government troops have 
been accused of some attacks 
on Tamil settlements, while 
Tamil rebels have been blam- 
ed for those on Sinhalese- 
dominated settlements.

Thatcher faces Commonwealth sanctions row 

Contined from page 1 

sensitive that government 
sources later made dear that it 
did not indicate that she was 
contemplating the break-op of 
the Commonwealth over die 
issue. They said she was 
stating that people who be- 
lieved they were right did not 
drop their argument because 
others held a different view, 
Flans for the consideration 
of “effective measures”, which 
Mrs Thatcher made dear sbe 
backs, will be spelt oat in the 
Commons on Taesday by Sir 
Geoffrey Howe, the Foreign 

The Government is pre- 
pared to ride oed opposition 
from the 60 or more Conserva- 
tive MPs opposed to talcing 
any further action at all 
against South Africa, but there 
will be several Conservative 
MPs who are disappointed at 
the strength of the Prime 
Minister's views. 

Many senior Conservatives, 
although opposed in principle 
to sanctions, now believe that 
something other than cosmetic 
measures frill be required to 
avoid a Commonwealth crisis. 

In her interview Mrs 
Thatcher said: “What is the 
purpose in having economic 

sanctions? Is it merely to hit 
out at something you don't like 
or is it to try to bring about a 
successful conclusion and a 
peaceful negotiation? There 
could be a view that to add to 
the present difficulties eco- 
nomic sanctions would only 
make things worse.” 

She stressed that the peace 
mission's report had “no- 
where, but nowhere” proposed 
economic sanctions, saying it 
was up to the heads of 
government to decide. 

“Are yon trying to hit oat at 
something for the sake of 
hitting out? It would harm 
many of the other countries in 

Africa which rely on getting 
their goods in and out tferough 
South Africa. It would hit this 
country — about 120,000 peo- 
ple would have to be without 

“Where you have trouble 
and violence, if you add to that 
greater poverty because you 
deny them things they need, 
yon can make the violence 
worse and you also add hangar 
to aif the other things they 
have to deal with. I do not see 
the argument that full econom- 
ic sanctions would stop vio- 
lence. There Is an argument 
that they weald lead to greater 
turmoil and more killing be- 

tween the Mack peoples.” 

Even the Commonwealth 
acting together with rancthms 
would not be enough, it would 
merely give business to other 
people. Tough sanctions were 
operated against Rhodesia for 
15 yearsand did not work. 

- Mrs Thatcher emphasized 
throughout that she wanted to 
bring an end to apartheid. 

Earlier yesterday Mr Neil 
Knmock, the Labour leader, 
said that sanctions would work 
because South Africa was 
entirely dependent for so much 
of its economic activity ou Its 
relationships with the rest of 
the world.

“You cannot make a dis- 
tinction between the Jews, 
Catholics and Protestants 
who . died; between the 
Frenchmen, the Poles, the 
Russians; the Germans even; 
Auschwitz is amply the place 
of the tortured man.”. 

■ A straightforward Chris- 
tian sentiment, is at the 
very heart of a bitter dispute 
between Roman': Catholics ^ 
and Jews over the meaning 
and memories , of the infa- 
mous concentration camp, 
the biggest single human 
slaughterhouse ever known. 

■ At a time-when the Pope is 
trying to build bridges be- 
tween the Church and the 
Jewish community r- his 
latest gesture was a visit to a 
Roman synagogue - the row 
over Auschwitz is an acute 
embarrassment . 

Oswierim is the name of 
the bustling southern- Polish 
town,, but- the camp on its 
outskirts will always be more 
familiar under its German 
.nomenclature. Four million 
people, 25 million of theitf 
Jews, were killed there be- 
tween 1940 andl945. 

The Jews consider Ausch- 
witz to be a symbol of the 
Holocaust, the site of the 
ultimate crime against them. 

But in 1984, after years ot 
deliberation and lobbying, 
not least by Cardinal Karol 
Wojtyla • of Cracow, later 
elevated to the Papacy, the 
Polish, authorities gave the 
go-ahead to - the Barefoot 
Carmelites to establish a 
convent just outside the 
camp walls. 

It is the first religious 
institution to be established 
in the area and its specific 
purpose is to offer prayers for 
the beatification of Edith 
Stein, a German Jewish phi- 
losopher who joined the Car- 
melite Older before perishing 
in Auschwitz. 

“We don't mean to cause 
any kind of conflict or take 
this place away from the 
Jews,” says the voice through 
-the grille. “We just want to 


The convent is a red brick 
building built as a. theatre 
before the Hist World War 
and later converted by die 
Nazis into a storehouse for 
soap and Cyclon B gas 

As the extermination 
passed the million mark, so 
the need grew for storehouses 
to shelter the loot When the 
Russians liberated Auschwitz 
they opened the six remain- 
ing warehouses (23 had been 
blown up by the. retreating 
Germans) and found 348.820 
men'ssui ts, 836,255 women's 
outfits and more than 40.000 
pairs-of shoes. 

The Jewish community are 
furious about the convent. 
Last March the nuns found 
themselves the 'target of a 
busload of Belgian Jews who 
pushed their way into the 

The Jewish community 
probably regrets this in vasion 
as much as the Catholic 
Church, but the feelings are 
strong. Five leading Europe- 
an rabbis, including- Sir lm-‘ 
manuel Jacobovitz. the 
British Chief Rabbi, have 
appealed to the Pope to close 
the convent. 

“We. cannot but deem it 
utterly incongruent lo sancti- 
fy ground which is desecrated 
ana accursed,” their letter 
says. “The very word Ausch- 
witz has become synonymous 
with the Holocaust, and to 
have this place of infinite 
inhumanity serve as a reli- 
gious shrine would cause 
affront and agony.” 

The Catholic defence is 1 
threefold. First, as Cardinal | 
Wojtyla's successor in Cra- 
cow, Cardinal Franc iszek 
Macbarski, has pointed out. 
the convent is sited some 
mites from the gas chambers 
and outside the actual camp 

Second, there is a Carmel- 
ite convent near Dachau that 
has prompted no controver- 
sy. The convents simply an- 
swer a spiritual need for the 
half a million or so visitors to 
the camp museum, as well as 
being a tribute to Edith Stein. 

And, finally, Jews were not 
the only victims of Ausch-

’ At £3.76' billion . for last

for the first lime:

was to some extern marred by 
die decline in net receipts 
noin retail ;sources. 

At £500 million these were 
more than athird down on the 
previous monthly figure - of 
£756 raiflion. This shortfall 
was only partly made up by 
societies" funding activities in 
the wholesale markets which 
produced £249 million ' 

. The decline in retail inflow 
is m part due to the fan that 
societies have reduced their 
investment rates fallowing the 
fall in mortgage rates to 11 per 

The - pew lower rates an- 
nounced in the middle of last

loll on societies' traditional 
sources of funds. 

There is normally a season- 
al decline in retail fowls 
between ^Agrii and May of 

around £I$0 million.- Some 
commentators yesterday pre- 
dicted that the societies were 
likely to suffer even, greater 
shortages on their retail funds

Businesses up for sale in- 

Woolworth last night fired 
another salvo at Dixon, the 
high street electrical chain, 
which is making an unwanted 
£1.9 billion takeover bid. 

Mr Geoff Mulcahy, the 
chief executive, tokl his share- 
holders that the bid would fail. 
“ This bid confirms our view 
that Dixons have only ever 
succceeded in small shop elec- 
trical retailing,'* he wrote. 

“Their previous attempts to 
diversify away from it failed - 
and we do not believe that 
their bid for Woolwonh 
would prove to be an excep- 
tion. It would merely be a 
failure on a far bigger scale 
than before." 

The Woolworth chief 
claimed that Dixons had pro- 
duced no coherent plan for the 
space in the chain after strip- 
ping out some stores to be 
used for Dixons and Currys 

He said indications that the 
Woolworth high street busi- 
ness would be compressed 
into less attractive space 
would destroy its own Focus 
strategy for improving the 

But as the bickering be- 
tween the two camps contin- 
ues, the result depends on the 
decision of the five key city 
institutions which speak for 
about 20 per cent of the 
Woolworth equity. 

. Signals from the Woolworth 
side that the institutions will 
support their cause have been 
resented by the Dixons team, 
which insists, that it is still too 
early to know which way 
theywill vote. 

Neither side seemed to be in 
evidence in the stock market 

.produced the stock market 

boom earlier this year. In particular 
die engine of takeover bids that 
fuelled the possibility of endless new 
profits has started to run out of fuel 
The boom was made possible by the 
City institutions that underwrote all 
the shares to be issued in bids or 
bought the issues (vendor placings) 
made to finance them. While some 
bids are now at the Monopolies 
Commission Dixons’ £1.9 billion 
offer for Woolworth s, Evered’s bid for 
McKechnie and money raising for 
Dee Corporation’s purchase of Fine 
Fare are among those causing the 
underwriters to reach for indigestion 

Since the . underwriters often own 
shares m bid-for companies many 
such deals should in part cancel 
*“OTnselves ; Meanwhile, however, a 
sharp fall in share prices can make 
underwriting an expensive business. 

So the institutions are becoming 
more cautious. There are still plenty 
. of rights issues in the Bank of England 
queue. There is a rush of small 
flotations on the Unlisted Securities 
Market before the autumn big bang. 
And when the shutters are drawn on 
the new issue queue, it will only be to 
allow space for the big privatization 
issues of Royal Ordnance and British 
Gas in the autumn, not to mention the 
reappearance of a possible TSB flota- 
tion. Why tie up money on risky 
underwriting now? y

Inflated ideas 

So what is the rate of inflation? As 
measured by the retail prices index, 
inflation was 2.8 per cent last month, 
the lowest for 18 years and fairly 
impressive in its own right. But the 
fax and price index, the measure of 
inflation introduced by Nigel Lawson 
which adjusts for changes in direct 
taxation, rose by just 0.9 per cent in 
the 12 months to May. 

Th *s gives scope for considerable 
variations on the usual horror story of 
earnings rising at three times the rate 
of inflation. On this thinking, an 
increase in earnings of 1 per cent over 
the past year would have been more 
appropriate than the 7.5 per cent 
underlying rise recorded. 

There is, however, a third measure 
of inflation now favoured by the 
Treasury. This is the rate as measured 
by the retail prices index, but exclud- 
ing mortgage rate effects. 

At present, this comes out worse 
than either of the others, showing a 
rate of 3 1 per cent in May, for 
example. But it has the advantage, the 
claims, of stripping out an 
unstable element in the RPI to 
provide a rate of consumer inflation 
more in line with underlying price 
lr cnds m the economy. 

This measure shows that there has 
been a downward step in the under- 
lying inflation rate over the past year 
or so from 5-6 percent to 3-4 per cent 
it has the advantage, from the point of 
view of the authorities, of not 
producing unhelpful upward jerks in 
the recorded inflation rate.

When Roy and Joan Gauge 
moved to the West Country to 
start a home for the mentally 
handicapped, they assumed 
that the advice they received 
from an insurance company 
“sales associate'’ would help 
them get the best pension deaL 

But after months of confu- 
sion and expense, the couple 
were — until two days — 
still locked into a set of 
policies they could ill afford 
and which they claim were 
unsuited to their needs. 

The Gauges' sorry saga 
began 16 months ago when a 
friend suggested they contact 
an Albany Life “sales 
associate" to advise them on 
pensions for the self- 

An Albany Life sales asso- 
ciate is on contract with the 
company on a self-employed 
basis, to market and sell its 
products, with free use of a 
-telephone and desk, and is 
paid commission only. 

At the time the Gauges were 
paying £520 a month to 
Lloyds Bank on a £34,000 10- 
year loan for their new busi- 
ness. They subsequently 
found themselves paying a 
total of around £820 a month 
after buying an insurance 
package which they , thought 
would cover the business loan 
and provide a pension without 
increasing their monthly 

Roy Gauge, who readily 
admits he is financially naive, 

The Government formally announced this week 
that it would not approve the introduction of a test of 
competence for all sales man selling life assurance 
and unit trusts. SUSAN FIEIJ3MAN reports on the 
unfortunate experience one couple had with a life 
assurance salesman, and LAWRENCE LEVER 
outlines some of the new rules which will apply to 
salesmen when the new financial services legislation 
conies into operation 

remembers what happened at 
the couple's first meeting with 
the Albany Life associate in 
February last yean 

“Our friend told us th3t the 
salesman worked for Albany 
Life, but when he came to see 
us he said quite categorically 
that be was an independent 
financial consultant and that 
he was in the position to offer 
us the best policy mi the 

“ He asked us if we realized 
that we could get £150 tax 
relief at a stroke by converting 
our loan to a pension mort- 
gage. He also said that we 
would need life cover and that 
as we would have money to 
spare we should have a sav- 
ings plan." 

Roy and Joan Gauge had 
never heard of a pension 
mortgage. But they claim they 
insisted that their total month- 
ly outlay should not exceed 
the £520 they were already 
paying to the bank — give or 
take £20 or £30. 

Mr Gauge explained: “At no 

time did we have any quota- 
tions in writing, although we 
asked him to come back 
several limes to confirm that 
we would not be spending any 
more money. He assured us 
that the package that he pul 
together was right for us, and 
that our monthly outlay 
would not increase.” 

So the couple went ahead 
and bought a package of five 
Albany Life policies. They 
consisted of two pension poli- 
cies. one each for Mr and Mrs 
Gauge costing £206 and £62 a 
month respecti vely;a whole of 
life policy at £84; a £21-a- 
month term assurance policy; 
and a £50. a month savings 
plan. The total cost was £423 a 

But what of the interest on 
the Gauges' new pension loan? 
The couple claim the sales 
associate never at any time 
told them that the loan inter- 
est had to be paid in addition 
to the insurance package. If he 
had done, they are adamant 

that they would never have 
gone ahead. 

“We were absolutely devas- 
tated later last year when I 
rang up the bank to query our 
bank statements.*’ recalls Joan 
Gauge. “Instead of paying out 
£520 a month over 10 years, 
we discovered that we were in 
fact paying out for the policies 
and the mortgage interest of 
around £1.300 a quarter. The 
total worked out at around 
£820 a month over 20 years.” 

Mr Gauge’s present accoun- 
tant — who was not involved 
when the policies were first 
offered to the couple - ex- 
plains the position about the 
promised tax relief: 

“! cannot understand how 
the salesman could claim that 
this was a tax-efficient pack- 
age when he could have had 
no accurate idea of what Mr 
and Mrs Gauges' net relevant 
earnings were. They had only 
been in business for five 

** Pension mortgages can be 
very tax-efficient, but in my 
opinion the Gauges were sold 
a total package that was 
grossly outside their require- 
ments or their financial ability 
Co repay". 

Last month, a meeting was 
arranged between Mr and Mrs 
Gauge, their accountant and 
the sales associate's supervisor 
at Albany Life. When asked 
about the package sold to Mr 
and Mrs Gauge, the supervi- 
sor commented: “The package 

OaUtmr LMt Trvtt AAvaory 5crvfc» 

Roy and Joan Gauge: ‘Derastadted by the news' 

is terrific for a customer if the 
customer can afford it." 

When asked directly if he 
would sell a package that he 
knew cost £300 more than the 
client expected he said: “I 
think not.” 

Last week Albany Life’s 
spokeman Peter Kelly com- 
mented: “It now appears dear 
in the light of their present 
circumstances that the finan- 
dal committment made by 
Mr and Mrs Gauge to these 
policies has proved unrealisti- 
cally high. For their sake it is 
therefore essential that an 
equitable settlement is 

Putting a curb 

on those 
slick salesmen 

• f ^ u • • . • 

The breve new world which 
awaits investors come the 
passing of the Financial Ser- 
vices Bill is not as brave or as 
. new as many would want on 
the issue of life assurance 
• sales. 

The representative bodies 
for consumers — the Office of 
Fair Trading, the National 
Consumer Council and the 
Consumers’ Assodation — all 
want to see full disdosure of 
the commission earned on 

Moreover, the Government 
has given the thumbs down to 
the idea pul forward by the 
Marketing of Investments 
Board Organizing Committee 
(MIBOC) that there should be 
a central register for all those 
selling life assurance and unit 
trusts. To qualify for the 
register they would have to 
pass a test of competence 
designed to ensure that they 
had at least a basic financial 
and investment knowledge. 

“Our proposals should con- 
fer appreciable benefits by 
reducing the chance of an 
investor being advised by an 
individual who lacks knowl- 
edge or who has a record of 
unsatisfactory conduct in this 
huge and diverse industry," 
said Mark Weinberg, chair- 
man of MIBOC at the time — 
MIBOCs job is to pul forward 
rules governing the sales of life 
assurance and unit trusts. 

To get its plan approved 
M I BOC needed the 
Government's consent as it 

Problems of expense 
and administration 

would require amendment of 
the Financial Services BilL 
Michael Howard, the Minister 
for Consumer and Corporate 
Affairs, did not take to the 
idea, pointing to the expense 
and administrative difficulties 
of maintaining an accurate 
and up-to-date list for an 
industry where salesmen fre- 
quently changed jobs. 

He also emphasized the 
provisions of the Financial 
Services Bill requiring busi- 
nesses to ensure the compe- 
tence of their employees, and 
providing for individual sales- 
men to be banned. 

MIBOCs other proposals 
for life assurance sales are 

more firm — they do not 
require government sanction. 

Apart from being designed 
to ensure that a customer 
knows for sure whom be is 
dealing with - that is, a 
company salesman offering 
the products of only one 
conpany or an independent 
intermediary offering the 
products of a selection of 
companies products — the 
proposals impose various du- 
ties on all salesmen aimed at 
safeguarding investors'

reached very quickly indeed." 

A settlement was finally 
reached two days ago. The 
couple’s payments have been 
reduced, to around £600 a 
month, by adjusting the insur- 
ance package. They have also 
had a refund of premiums on 
two of the policies. 

Mr and Mrs Gauge are 
happy with the final outcome. 
Joan Gauge said: “We won’t 
be so gullible in future. We are 
now very sceptical about life 1 
insurance salesmen, and we 
will always speak to our I

anything else.”

The break-up of a tive-hi 
relationship is painful enough 
but die legal and financial 
complexities of making the 
break can be even worse. 

Shac, the London Housing 
Aid Centre, believes that 
women suffer most as they 
usually have the responsibility 
of caring for any children and 
enjoy teas earning capacity. So 
they have issued two new 
guides—/! Woman’s JHoce for 
married women, and Going It 
Alone for unmarried women. 

These give a basic ontEne of 
the law and women's rights in 
divorce, maintenance, bous- 
ing and when taking action 
against a violent partner. 

They are not substitutes for 
finding a good sympathetic 
solicitor but provide a guide to 
the options and possibilities 
open to women facing a split 
with their partners and the 
spectre of homelessness. 

In the first nine months since we 
introduced Dealercall over 6000 
investors have become card holders

the service regularly.

Pam stayed in the bouse 
and kept it as a trade-off 
against claiming maintenance 
from her former husband. She 
was working and with a little 
help from her family she was 
able to keep up the mortgage

this sort of trade-off fits in 
with the new “dean, break” 
philosophy of divorce and

useful if you receive it”. Any

way to pay 
bills abroad 


After 50 weeks of scrimping 
and saving for a holiday in the 
sun. it might seem a drag, to 
have to wony about how to 
carry the necessaries whDe 

However, a little time spent 
shopping around before set- 
-ting off can pay dividends — 
and, more importantly, save 
an awful lot ofhassle once you 
hit. the bars or beaches. As 
anyone who has strolled into 
Greedy Gulch, Kansas, with 
peseta travellers' cheques after 
the banks have shut can tell 
you, being far from home 
without money to pay for food 
or a place to sleep is a great 
way of ruining a holiday. 

If you are taking money 
abroad, the obvious first 
choice is travellers' cheques. 
The great bonus of these, of 
course, is their safety. Lose a 
bundle of cash ana there’s 
nothing to do but cry to the 
local police, who have proba- 
bly-heard it aU-raany times 
before. But misplace your 
travellers' cheques and in 
theory' you can get them’ 
replaced within 24 hours with 
one telephone call. - 

That is not always the case, 
but if you buy cheques bearing 
one of the big names in the 
travellers' cheque world — 
Thomas Cook, Visa, NatWest 
or American Express — you 
can be fairly certain of receiv- 
ing prompt attention. Other 
cheques can present problems 
— it is hard to see the joke as a 
group of Spanish bank clerks 
collapse in laughter as they 

Midland to £3 at NaiWest, 
which militates against travel- 
lers who need less than say 
£200. . ; ; 

There are also commission 
. charges at most banks abroad, 
although the rates obtainable 
on travellers’ cheques are 

usually better than on sterling 

notes.. Again there are.ways 
avoi ding commission abroad: 
For - example, American Ex- 
press-cheques can be cashed

Most -people traveilinjs. to 


Europe will be. well enough oft 

carrying sterling traveller^ 
cheques — there seems little’ 
likelihood of a drastic run on 
the pound this summer. 

However, there are alterna- 
tives both inside and outside 
the Continent Thomas Cook 
offers cheques in everything 
from Hong Kong dollars to 
Dutch guilders and Swiss 
francs. In Spain, for example. 
Visa peseta cheques can be 
used to buy olive-wood casta- 
nets without, your being sub- 
jected . the . often 
questionable .exchange rates 
that shopkeepers offer. Nor is 
there, usually any . commission 
overseas with foreigncurrency _ 
cheques, although they may be 
a little more expensive to buy 
at home in the first place.

£3.50 to £4 a. year, and the trip, and them are. no otter 

Big banks have a 
minimum charge 

examine your Rotienbo rough 
Bank travellers’ cheques. - - 

The next question is where 
to buy them. Here, building 
society investors seem to have 
the advantage, with a number 
of switched -on societies steal- 
ing a march on their banking 
rivals by offering commission- 
free cheques. The Leeds, the 
Alliance & Leicester, the Bev- 
erley, the Sheffield and the 
Peckham are among those 
offering this valuable sendee 
to their, members. 

Those who do-not hold an 
account at these societies will 
probably have: to pay T^per

street banks or branches of 
ThomasCook. But remember, 
most of the big banks have a 
minimum change, '..ranging 
from £2 at Barclays and 

Outside Europe the dollar 
rules and it is no use bemoan- 
ing the passing of the Empire 
as your sterling cheques are 
refused in Rangoon. Take US 
dollar cheques for a safe 
passage to the Third Work! as 
well as the United States. 

The great rival that has 
grown up to challenge the 
travellers’ cheque in recent 
years is, of course, the Uni- 
form Eurocheque. For these 
you have ta . obtain a 
Eurocheque guarantee card 
from your local bank as well as 
a bundle of cheques. 

The great thing about 
Eurocheques is their great 
flexibility. They can be used to 
pay for a meal in Rabat in 
Morrocan dirham or a bottle 
of local schnapps in Reykja- 
vik. writing die cheque in 
Icelandic krona. Of course, 
you can also draw money with 
them at the local bank, and 
Midland and NatWest cards 
can even be used in Spanish 
cash dispensers. The limit of 
£ 1 00 or equivalent per cheque 
should be good .enough for 
" most travellers. 

There are also drawbacks. 
Eurocheques and cards need 
to be ordered well in advance 
Land .can Jbe comparatively 
expensive. The card costs 

commission costs are also 
dearer than for travellers’ 
cheques, ranging from 1.25 
per cent plus 28p a cheque at 
Midland to i.6 per cent and 
30p at Barclays. 

In addition; - - their 
acceptabiiiy varies widely 
among the 39 countries where 
they are taken. Pretty well

worldwide profit-makers 

Pick: a fund, any fund, and you 
make money — so it seems. 
Stock markets have been 
pumping oat profits for inves- 
ioi5 ah over the world. Japan, 
Australia, Hong Kong, the 
United States and Britain 
have all hit peaks this year, 
though they are ah now below 
their besL 

But is the very best behind 

them, or do the^ have a little 

more steam left!? 

Our table shows that only 
the most foolish financial 
virgins would have left any 
spare capital outside the share

attempts by stockbrokers to

If you want to put money 
into shares, particularly on 
overseas markets, the simplest 
way is to buy a unit trust. And 
if you started out a year ago 
you would have been unlucky 
not to be showing a profit 
now. Out of the 772 funds 
then on the market only 64 
have failed to -show a profit 

japan and the European 
Cos tinental markets have 
done best over 12 months, 
despite a slippery period for 

french and West German 
shares during the past few 
weeks. The performances re- 
flect more than strong share 
prices; they highlight currency 
gyrations too. 

The Japanese yen, for exam- 
ple, was trading at around 230 
to the pound last year. Now 
you get just 260. Even if your 
unit trust's stake in 
Yamanouchi Pharmaceuticals 
might not have gone up in yen 
prices (it would, in fact, lave 
done) It would still be worth a 
fifth more in pounds. 

Few European funds 
to choose from 

Jan Kingzett, of Schraders, 
believes that the yen will not 
do much either way against 
the pound in the short term. 
He regards the rate as “safe", 
and adds that- there are no 
plans to take the expensive 
precaution of hedging against 
yen depredation. 

Although mainstream Japa- 
nese funds have done well, Mr 
Kingzett stresses that the Jap-

The logic is difficult to fault,

Mercury Japan Fund was launched in June, 1983 and over the 3 years since then 
it has outperformed all 528 auhorisedunittrustswith minaease invalueof l95.8per€etit* 

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 managem ent 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. 

Mercury Japan 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.

How plastic piles up shoppers’ debts 


Debt has become resoectabli

Paying for goods and services 
with cash is positively passe 
compared with flexing the 
plastic muscles of your wallet. 
The story of die’ restaurant 
diner anxiously inquiring, 
"Do you take money?" b 
apocryphal but revealing. 
Gold and platinum bank 
cards, plus store credit cards 
are becoming more and more 
popular as they symbolize an 
opulent consumer lifestyle. 

"British consumers are pay- 
ing through the nose for the 
privilege of buying things on 
plastic. As I see it, lenders are 
making windfall profits from a 
fell in inflation and base rates. 
Credit rates have not followed 
suit,” says Pat Conaty, of the 
Birmingham Money Advice 
Centre, a debt counselling 

fjm m&rrm &eu ftmty imm ike urn 
m spxui iHe vrcril? km deems 

Last month alone £1,090 
million worth of credit was 
advanced on bank cards, and 
retail stores sold £407 million 
worth of goods on their own 
plastic cams. 

Credit may take the waiting 
out of wanting, as the old 
advertising slogan ran. but it 
does not remove the plain fact 
that you have to pay. And the 
price is high. Some store cards 
charge an exorbitant 38.75 per 
cent for credit to purchase 
their own goods. That com- 
pares with a Bardaycard rate 
of 26.8 per cent, personal 
(unsecured) loans of just un- 
der 20 per cent and mortgages 
(secured loans) at around 1 1 
per cent 

Remember retail price infla- 
tion is just 3 per cent, and 
some store cards are charging 

But the stores argue that 
their cards are not bad value. 
There are a number of “re- 
volving credit" accounts, 
whereby a small monthly 
payment services a continuing 
credit facility. At the rates 
charged this really amounts to 
being offered more rope with 
which to hang yourself 

However, most store credit 
works rather like a credit card. 
The shopper acquires the 
goods, which are charged loan 
account The account may not 
be payable for as long as 56 
days, and if the full balance is 
paid no interest will be 

In that instance both parties 
benefit The shopper receives 
interest-free credit and the 
store generally sells more 
goods. Marks & Spencer, for 
example, says its 1 2 million 
cardholders have boosted 
turnover by 2 per cent — just 
undear £68 millio n. According 

to a spokesman for the Bur- 
tons-Debenhams group, the 
cards “help promote sales and 
customer loyalty". 

The cost of that loyalty is an 
annual 36.9 per cent (or 329 
per cent if payment is made by 
direct debit) for outstanding 
balances on an Option ac- 
count with a Debenhams 
charge card. Marks & Spencer, 
customers pay 29.8 per cent 
on unpaid balances. 

charged. First the number of 
bad debtors is relatively large, 
which adds to the cost of 
providing the service. This, of 
course, is pure rot. True 
enough, bad debtors do make 
borrowing more expensive for 
those who can pay, but surely 
the onus should be on the 
creditors to screen their debt- 
ors a little more effectively. 
Then, perhaps, interest 
charges might be a little more 

couraged to take it up if they 
are wavering overa sale. 

One startled Debenhams 
shopper recounts her experi- 
ence: “I have been invited to 
apply for a Debenhams 
Storecard twice, each time 
while 1 was hovering over the 
merchandise displays. It's a 
great temptation. Now I know 
what the interest rates are Fm 
glad I didn't take it further.” 

that-of course, is not in itself a 
true token of creditworthiness. 

Secondly, say the stores, the 
rates can be justified on the 
rather weak pretext that they 
are “competitive", a word 
chosen by Marks & Spencer, 
Burtons, and Sears pic, which 
owns such high street drains 
as Sd fridge, Lewis’s, Wallis, 
Foster's and Saxone. 

But what sort of competi- 
tion is it? With the basic cast 
of money, bank base rates, at 
10 per cent a profit margin of 
16 per cent and more would 
certainly lead to a price- 
cutting war if the competition 
was indeed “competitive”. 

John Bouffler, of Seats, 
says: “There are cheaper 
sources of finance but there's a 
Bardaycard rate and a 
storecard rate, and we charge a 
competitive storecard rare”. . 

■ You may think that com^ 
petitive storecard rates are 
actually, very poor value for 
money. But what can be done? 
The simple answer is more 
effective credit screening, and

effective, mainly, says Mr 
Poole, “because the banks are 
very protective: about their

Clearly, there is an ethical 
problem for bankers here But 
their refusal to participate

four members of the family on

roughly £12 a head per trip in

This was just to buy the

What constitutes decent

medical expenses, particularly 
if you are going to the United

Look carefully at the small 
print. Some insurers have

also getting tougher on claims. 
When ! lost some cash in the 
Algarve last year I was told I 
had to cough up a copy of my 
bank statement to prove I had 
actually withdrawn the money 
before going on holiday. 

And are the seemingly exor- 
bitantly high premiums 
charged for long-haul trips 
actually justified? Keith Win- 
chester, a loss adjustor with 
Van Ameyde & Wallis, who 
handles many travel claims, 
says they are: “It costs far 
more to repatriate holiday- 
makers Itout Asia, Africa or 

Tnsnrers are getting 
tougher now 9 

meat on the spot to show the 
insurer when you get home is 
absolutely essential. 

It is possible to cut the cost 
of holiday insurance premi- 
ums and save yourself tame by 
taking out one insurance each 
year to cover yourself for the 
full 12 months. This may 
sound like a gimmick but last 
year it would have saved me 
more than £100, and h must 
make sense for anyone who 
often goes overseas. 

American Express offers 
Centurion Assistance, which 
comes in three parts — cover 
for such things as cancellation, 
money and baggage, medical 
cover, and a vehicle assistance 

the States, and there is defi- 
nitely a much higher incidence 
of medical claims arising from 
trips to these areas." 

Chris Parrott, of travel firm 
Journey Latin America, says: 
“Theft is endemic in places 
like’ South America. I have 
noticed that insurers are get- 
ting tough, probably because 
of their daims experience. For 
instance, if someone pats in a 
claim for the loss of a camera 
that they left hanging over the 
back of a chair while they went 
to the loo, the insurer may 
well refuse to pay up on the 
grounds that they were not 
being very responsible. 

The first two give you all the 

ingredients for a holiday in- 
‘ £85 a 

surance package for 
year. For this price a spouse 
and children under 18 travel- 
ling with you are coveted as 
wdL If you are taking just one 
long-haul holiday it still prob- 
ably works out cheaper. It 
applies anywhere in the world 
aim there is no winter sports 

Travel firm Wexas Interna- 
tional offers a similar year- 
round policy for £75. But you 
pay £37 JO extra. tor a spouse 
and £18-75 for every child, so if 
you are travelling en famIUe it 
works out more expensive.

Businesses and traders who 
are late paying their quarterly 
VAT returns are no longer to 1 
be branded as criminals. 

A change m the law to allow 
Customs and Ex rise officials 
to concentrate on the job of] 
collecting VAT from the one; 
and a ban mOlton VAT payers 
and avoid ttme-consnining I 
prosecutions conies into effect 
on October 1. 

From that date a late or: 
unpaid return win coant as a 
“default”. Two defaults in a 
12 -month period then attracts 
a surcharge liability notice and 
warns die trader that if he 
defaults again during the next 
12 months be will have to pay 
a surcharge mi die unpaid tax. 

The surcharge is levied at 5 
per cent to start with, and rises 
in steps of 5 per cent for every 
subsequent default - up to n 
maximum of 30 per cent or 


At the moment only 2 per 
cent of businesses registered 
for VAT fail to make their 
returns to Customs and Excise 
on time. Whether the removal 
of the 'threat of criminal 
prosecution will increase the 
proportion of late payers or 
non-payers remains to be seen. 

But unlike tax owed to the 
Inland Revenue, there is no 
opportunity to pay VAT in 
instalments by agreement with 
the collection authorities. 

The Government hopes dint 
the new arrangements will rat 
the amount of VAT owed from 
£1200 million to about £600 
million by 1988. 

When the Customs and 
Excise owes a trader a VAT 
repayment which is delayed by 
more than 30 days, the new 
regulations impose a 5 per cent 
surcharge on the amount ow- 
ing. up ton £30 maximum. 

If, however, the delay is due 
to mistakes on the trader’s 
r e tu rn or missing documents, a 
delay of more than 30 days will 
not necessarily attract the

plaintiffs. Humming Bud Mo-. 

tors Ltd. 

Mr Nicholas Ainley for die 
defendant; Mr David Van Hee 
for die plaintiffs. 


O’CONNOR said that the 
defendant was a young man 
whom the judge found was an 
amateur who engaged m some 
wheeling and dealing in die 
motor trade. 

In 1983 he went to a car 
auction where there was an X- 
registered Vauxhail .Astra which 
did nor fetch its reserve price. 
After the auction he saw die car 
and entered into negotiations 
for its purchase with the seller 
Mr R. S Wade trading as R. S. 
Wade Motors. . 

The car was immaculate and 
shining and the odometer 
showed 34,900 miles. The 
defendant paid £2*275 for it and 
a day later, be went to the 
plaintiffs garage where be was 
told it was worth £2,700. 

He promptly sold it to them 
and signed a “Used Car and 
Motor Cycle Purchase Invoice” 
saying that to the best of bis 
knowledge and belief the odom- 
eter reading was correct. 

The car had in feet done well 
over 80,000 miles and Wade 
Motors knew that very welL 

state oi Miu-'tufi.- ■ » — _ 

chase invoice was in the name or 
lbc defendant and there was a 
section containing eight declara- 
tions In* him. 

They related, inter to 
whether the car was purchased, 
new. whether it had been used 
abroad, whether it had been 
used For axi work, whether it 
had been involved in an ac- 
cident and whether it was free 
from any lien or other encum- 

The crucial declaration was as 
to whether the odometer read- 
ing was correct and the defen- 
dant declared that the reading 
was 34,900. miles and »as 

There was then a declaration 
which read: “I declare that the 
information given above is to 
the best of my knowledge and 
belief correct** and the defen- 
dant signed iL 

The plaintiffs’ case was that 
there was a breach of warranty 
and fraud ulem misrepresenta- 
tion. They submitted that the 
invoke was a represen tali on 

that the odometer reading was 

However that was not nght. 
The representation was that to 
the best of the defendant's 
knowledge and belief the an- 
swers given were correct. Many 
vendors could not say beyond to 

accepted the evidence of the 
defendant and- rejected that of 
the third party. The Court of 
Appeal could not interfere with 
that finding. • 

He then said that die defen- 
dant made representations to 
the plaintiff in good faith-' 

That muss mean that the 

judge thought that the defendant 
knew no more about the car 

than that ihe third party could 
not warrant the odometer rcad- 

"Thcrefbrc there was no room 
for saving that there was an 
actionable misrepresentation. 

The plaintiffs submitted that 
the defendant should have said 
that the odometer reading was 
•■unknown" or used some such 
words and that it was negligent 
to fill the form in the wav in 
which it was done.' 

In his Lordship's judgment 
that was not negligent at all and 
the judge fell into emir m 
finding that ihe defendant was 

The judge also dismissed the 
case against the third party and 
it was- difficult to understand 
how that came about. The judge 
was wrong in . his' conclusion 
once be found that the defen- 
dant was honest .

Regma v Clerk to the Medway 
Justices. Ex parte Department 
of Health ami Social Security 
Before Lord Justice Woolf and 
Mr Justice Macpherson 
[Judgment given June 1 1) 

Justices, or a clerk to justices, 
before exercising their dis- 
cretion la issue a summons, 
were entitled to inquire why 
there had been delay in laying an 
information although the statu- 
tory time limit for the laying of 
informations had not been 

Accordingly, a justices’ cleric 
had not acted wrongly or ex- 
ercised bis discretion improp- 
erly when he refused to issue a 
summons on the ground of 
delay even though the informa- 
tion was good and valid in form, 
and had been laid within the 12- 
mooth period for the 
commencement of proceedings 
prescribed by section 147(3) of 
the Social Security Act 1975. . 

The Queen's Bench Di- 
visional Coun so held when it 
refused the application of the 
Department of Health and So- 
ria! Security for an order of 
mandamus directed to the clerk 
of Medway Justices requiring 
him to issue the summons 
against a proposed defendant 
pursuant to an information laid 
before the derk by the depart- 
ment orrSeptember 30, 1985. - 

Mr Philip Vallaace for-the 

said that the DHSS. in conjunc- 
tion with the Department of 
Employment, had made in- 
vestigations in Gillingham. 
Kent, into numerous alleged 
social security frauds, and a 
person had been interviewed in 
res pea of receipt on various 
dates in 1984 of unemployment 
benefii for his wife when she bad 
in feci been working. 

The person had admitted he 
should have told the department 
his wife was working. Although 
the department had decided to 
proceed against him, various 
matters delayed the preparation 
of theease and the date for the 
laying of the information in 
respect of the alleged fraud, 
contrary to section 146(3) of the 
1975 Act, was September 30, 

1985, the offence being alleged 
to have been on October 1, 

‘ The derk to the justices made 
inquiries and sought an explana- 
tion for the delay in laying the 
information. Despite writing 
several letters to the department 
no explanation was given and 
the derk refused to grant the 

His Lordship said that a 
number of propositions helped 
to resolve the present case: 

First, it was clear, that once a 
summons had been issued, 
where there had been inordinate 
delay by the prosecution ^result- 
ing in prejudice to the defendant 
.-the court. .could refuse to 
prdoeed with trial of the sum- 
mons and dismiss it. 

Although thecoun should not 
seek to toy. down artificial time 
limits, criminal proceedings 
should be brought to trial and 
verdict as swiftly as possible: see 
per Lord Justice May in R r 
Grays Justices. Ex parte Gra- 
ham ([1982] QB 1239. 1247). 

That was a crown court 
matter where there were no such 
time limits as in summary trials, 
and later cases had taken a more 
stringmt view of delay: see R v 
Gateshead Justices, fix parte 
Smith (Charles William) t The 
Times July 2, 1985). 

The second proposition was 
that those cases were concerned 
with .decisions of justices after 
the issue of a summons, and the 
court was also concerned with 
the whole period of delay from 
the time of the commission of 
the offence. . - 

. Third, the issue of a summons 
was a judicial act that could be 
performed at the discretion of 
justices, under section I of the 
Magistrates' Courts Act 1 980. or 
their derk. under the Justices’ 
Clerks Rules (SI 1970 No 231); 
and the matters set out in 
section 1(2) of the 1980 Act that 
bad to be satisfied, before the 
issue of a summons were not. 
exhaustive: see also R v Man- 
chester Stipendiary Magistrate. 
Ex parte Hill ((1983] I AC328). 

His Lordship drew attention 
to R.v West London Metropoli- 
tan Stipendiary. Magistrate; Ex 

lice, that among mher matters 
the magistrate should consider 
. whether the allegation against a 
* defendant was vexatious and 
that only in exceptional circum- 
stances should he seek, in his 
discretion, , further information 
from the informant. 

Finally, it was vexatious for 
the prosecution to by an 
information purely to prevent 
the expiry of the limitation 
period: see R * Brentford Jus- 
tices. Ex parte Wang QI981] 1 
Q8 445. 449-450). . 

His Lordship said that in 
most cases, while the issue of a 
summons was a judicial act, it 
was prefe rabl e drat the question 
whether there had been an abuse 
of process should be dealt with 
after tire gammons had been 
issued. 'and it -was more de- 
sirable that the matter was dealt ■ 
with in open ' court by the 

But it was dear that the 
justices or their clerk had a- 
residual discretion to deal with 
the matter before the summons 
was issued. 


SH- -Ni-J

■ -**. 

If a prosecution was delayed 
justice could he denied: there 
was a clear obligation for the 
DHSS to conduct criminal in- 
vestigations and prosecutions as 
expeditiously as possible, and if 
trials were delayed the machin- 
ery of the courts would be 
clogged up and their efforts to 
reduce delays thwarted. 

Alhougb the information was 
laid in time that did not mean 
that there were no circum- 
stances in which ,thc clerk could 
not inquire as to why there had 
been a delay. - . - 

. Unless justices, or their clerk, 
acted unreasonably the court 
should be slow io regard their 
inquiries as being ones they 
were not entitled to make. 

In the present case, the fact 
that the derk received no re- 

’te *

spouses to. his inquiries meant 
further delay, and he was -en-

Lord Widgery. Lord Chief Jus- 

further delay, and he was -en- 
titled to take into account that 

there had been a total disregard 
or any response to those in- 
quiries. Accordingly, he did not 
act unlawfully or contrary to his 
duty. . .

Cochrane can 
take control 
on Governor 

By Mandarin (Michael Phillips) 

Ray Cochrane looks like 
being the star of ihe show 
again ai York today, just as he 
was at Epsom last Saturday 
when he gave Midway Lady- 
such an inspired ride to win 
the Oaks. 

This afternoon he appears 
to have an excellent chance of 
winning the William Hill Tro- 
phy on Governor General. In 
fact the situation is similar to 
that of a year ago when Si 
Signor looked to have this 
feature event on Timeform 
Charity Day — which is run 
annually in aid of cancer relief 
and other charities — at his 


In spite of being penalised 
Tor a previous success Si 
Signor duly won. Now I expect 
Governor General to do like- 
wise. When the handicapper 
compiled these weights he had 
comparilively little evidence 
to go on. the most recent in 
Governor General's case be- 
ing his fifth place in a race 
over a mile won by Ntsuas at 

Put back to to six furlongs at 
Newbury for his only subse- 
quent race. Governor General 
was to run out an impressive 
winner. And Native Oak. the 
horse he beat by five lengths, 
has gone on to win twice since. 
So. not surprisingly. Gerald 
Cottrell is taking this last 
opportunity to run Governor 
General from off his old mark, 
albeit with a penalty because 
infinitely harder tasks face 
him in the future. 

In this instance 1 fear

debui Mummy's Favourite 
did well to finish on the heels 
of Latch Siring and Murdon 
Melody ai Newmarket She 
finished like a rocket that day. 

Willie Carson, who rides 
Mummy's Favourite, appears 
to have his best chance of 
success on Likeness in the 
Vernons Stakes. Lord 
Porches ter's filly had clearly 
not come to herself when she 
finished unplaced at Newmar- 
ket first time out this year. But 
nor had any of her, stable 
companions at West Bsley. 
However her last two races 
last season at Ascot and 
Newmarket pointed to her 
being good enough to win a 
race like this at the expense of 
Lady For Two and Shakana. 

Carson may also win ihe 
Michael Sobeil Handicap on 
Freedom's Choice, who was 
disqualified from second place 
after running so well in the 
race won by Esquire during 
the spring meeting. 

Pouring scorn on the theory 
that horses do not come to 
hand early at Whaicombe, 
Paul Cole has made an almost 
unbelievably good start to his 
first season training there. 

Of the four runners that he 
has at York. Danski (3 JO) and 
Beijing (4.30) looked the best: 
especially the latter who. being 
a half sister to the Irish St 
Leger winner. Protection 
Racket will relish the distance 
of the Basil Samuel Handicap. 

However, it is surely signifi- 
cant that Richard Quinn, 
Cole's retained jockey will be 
at Sandown principally to 
partner Axe Valley, Pochard 
and Actinium. While I feel 
that Axe Valley may well have 
to play second fiddle to 

t ■•••■» r;- • ..... ... „ ... ...

Elnawaagi holds off Pannanich Wells at York earlier this season. The pair will renew 
rivalry in today's William Hill Trophy at York. 

Loch till um in the Baker Lo- 
renz Summer Handicap. 1 do 
fancy her stable companions. 

Actinism is napped to win 
the Valuation Stakes even 
though he will be meeting 
Zaajer on 51b worse terms 
tham when they clashed last at 
Newmarket where there was 
2'h lengths between them. At 
Newmarket Actinium proved 
that he stays a mile and three 
quarters without flinching. 

As Pochard enjoys nothing 
more than making all the 
running he should be in hjs 
element at Sandown. which is 
renowned as a front runners' 
track. So I take him to beat 
Forward Rally in the Baker 
Lorenz Silver Gavel Stakes. 

While Greville Starkey is at 
Sandown, Tony Clark, his 
understudy at Pulborough can 
make hay at Bath on Saifraz 
(3.0) and Lord It Over (5.0). 
Finally, at Leicester Steve 
Cauthen should also land a 
double now that Henry Cecil 
has decided to lower bis sights 
with the one-time classic 
hopes. Lady Sophie (7. 1 5) and 
Tanaos (9.15). 

Lacovia stands out 

From Our French Racing Correspondent, Paris . 

Lacovia, who beat several of 
her rivals is the Prix Saint- 
Alary last time oat, looks sure to 
start favourite for the Prix de 
Diane Hermes (French Oaks) at 
ChastiHy tomorrow and wQl be 
difficult in beat. 

Francois Boutin's filly led into 
the straight in the Saint-Alary 

and drew right a way to defeat 
•Secret Fora by four lengths with 

Secret Fora by four lengths with 
Barger just behind In third. 
Carnation (fifth), Galnnpe 
(sixth) and Welcome Vale n tin e 
(seventh) were all dose to 
Bar ger hot, such was Lacoria's 
superiority, it is hard to visualise 
any of the beaten raaness revers- 
ing the form, especially as she 
has esntinaed to impress observ- 
ers in borne gallops. 

Ivor’s Image is the sole Brit- 
ish raider and the Michael 
Scoots hope must have each-way 
prospects on the strength of her 
victory *■ the Oaks dTtafia and 
her previous fourth in the 
Cheshire Oaks behind Salchow.

point in the second set but was 
beaten 6-7. 7-6, 6-2 by Tim

Becker and Mayotte are 
both heavyweights. They 
achieved and maintained such 
a violent expertise that their 
tennis was almost as «fay*tmf» 

«. uVvas also threatened by an 
"4 V. : injured ankle. 

; f A lovely summer afternoon 
- * ■' (and Miss Sarah Ferguson, up 
l -.. on the balcony, also looked

embellished by a match spiced 
'with more variety, more fi-

improvised splendour, their 
ability to control the ball when 
it is flying about like a bullet. 
But that does not make the 
spectacle engaging. 

Technically, the early days 
of black and while television 
were astonishing. So, to this 
day, is the sight of a dachs-

occasion, was the tennis. But 
when compared with other 
forms of entertainment, all 
three visual oddities had, or 
have, obvious deficiencies. It 
does not foDow that because 
this or that feat is. difficult to 
do, it must also be good to 
watch. . 

This was almost rally-fret 
tennis. There was one incredi- 
bly exciting short-range rally 
illuminated by such lambent 
patterns that it was like a 
concentrated electric storm. 
But that rally occurred in the 
25th game after an hour and 
40 minutes. It was worth 
waiting for, but not worth 
waiting for that long. Twice 
Mayotte cried tint in protest 
because some spectator yelled 
during a quasi-rally. He 
should have been grateful that 
anybody was still attentive 
enough to be excited.

and 53 minutes, many specta- 
tors voted with their feel and

Whitaker powers in to pip 
his brother at the post 

Michael Whitaker, riding the 
remarkable Next Owen Greg- 
ory. owned by Mrs Raymond 
Fenwick, held off a strong 
challenge from bis older brother 
John, on San Salvador, to win 
yesterday’s NEC Power and 
Speed competition at the Royal 
International Horse Show at 
Birmingham's National Ex- 
hibition Centre. ' ; 

With the four European team 
gold medal winners ail finishing 
jn the top Jive— Malcolm pyrah 
>as third and Nick Skelton was 
fifth — the' competition showed - 
once again bow consistent these 
four riders are regardless of the 
horse they are riding. 

Owen Gregory, showing typi- 
cal disregard for his 18 years, 
jumped swiftly and cleanly

merous successes with the Irish- 
bred gelding include the 1980 
HiCkslead Jumping Derby, is 
not surprised at the horse’s 
continued enthusiasm for the 
sport. “It’s because the Fen- 
wicks never allow him to do too 
much,” he said.

Leicestershire regained the 
Tilcon Trophy, lost to Warwick- 
shire in 1985. with a comfort- 
able win 68 runs over their 
old rivals in (he final at Harro- 
gate yesterday. 

On a drying pitch Leicester- 
shire were reduced to 117 for 
eight in 36 overs before a ninth- 
wicket stand of 55 in 19 overs, to 
which Whiiticase, the man of 
the match, contributed six fours 
in his unbeaten 45. 

Warwickshire's innings fared 
worse, the first three wickets 
going down in Agnew's opening 
burst and the remaining bats- 
men struggling to survive with- 
out ever achieving the scoring 
rale. Only Ferreira and Munton 
passed 20 and the side were 
dismissed for 104 with five 
overs to spare.

Adventurous Trevino sails 
along with the breeze 

From Mitchell Platts, Southampton, Long Island 

They jostled for position, 
rather than with tire dements, as 
tire second round of the 86ih US 
Open unfolded on the 
Sh innekock Hills course here 
yestciday- The wind was a mere 
zephyr compared with the 
rousing nor-easter which 
wreaked such havoc on Thurs- 
day when Bob Tway, of the 
United States, shot a level par 
70 for tire lead and the vast 
majority congratulated them- .assured of a place in the record 

the rough to drop a shot at tire 
13th. then missed the green at 
the 13th. Nicklaus. also out in 
35. dropped three shots in five 
holes from the 1 1 th so that, like 
Ballesteros, he was felling too fer 
behind- Greg Norman, how- 
ever, foUowed his fust round of 
71 by starting with three birdies 
in the first five boles as the sun 
finally broke through- 
This particular US Open was 

selves simply on finishing. 

Tway was among the late 
starters yesterday. He began his 
second round, dropping a shot 
at the third, as Severiano 
Baflasteros (73 - 148) and Jack 
Nicklaus (72= 149) came off the 
course. By that time Lee 
and Raymond Floyd 
had become the first players in 
the championship to break par. 
Floyd, recovering from a 75. had 
two birdies in a flawless round. 
Trevino was more adventurous 
as Ire gathered five birdies for a 
halfway aggregate of 142. 

“The wind today was not 
enough to hurt you.” said 
Trevino. “In any other event I 
would have probably thrown the 
towel in yesterday, but this is the 
US Open and it comes round 
only once in 365 days. Ill be 47 
years old in December but 
somebody’s got to win, no 
matter their age. and my 
chances are excellent I fell in 
love with this course the mo- 
ment I played it first on Tuesday 
and it suits me down to the 
ground because you need to 
work the ball from left to right 
which is my game." 

Trevino began by holing from 
eight feet for a birdie at the first 
hole. He dropped shots at both 
the fifth and sixth holes but he 
reached the turn in a level par 35 
by hitting a five-iron to six feet 
from the hole at the ninth (447 
yards). He was home in 33 with 
the assistance of three birdies, 
which be secured with putts of 
between 18 and 20 feeL 

Ballesteros, out in 35. came 
under pressure as he drove into 

books once Tway emerged as 
the first round trader with his 
thoroughly professional level 
par score. It was the first time 
since tire US Open at Winged 
Foot in 1974 that not one player 
had managed to break par in the 
first round oflhe championship. 

The wind roared at speeds 
gu sling to 35mph. The tem- 
perature dropped to SO degrees. 
The rain slanted across tire 
exposed course in heavy squalls. 
And the atrocious conditions, 
inevitably, launched a thousand 
smart remarks. They questioned 
whether it was Southampton. 
New York, or Southampton. 
England. They said that the first 
round would be remembered 
the way Siberians remember 
particularly harsh winters and 
sailors tell tales of -rounding 
Cape Horn for the first time. 

Nicklaus described the ordeal 
as “probably as difficult a day as 
I have known in American 
championship golf.” He bit only 
four greens in regulation and, in 
spite of rationing hi msdfio only 
26 putts, he finished with a 77. 
Bernhard Larger, following an 
excellent 74. said.-“We could 
have been blown away and gone 
sailing into the ocean with an 
umbrella.** Denis Watson, of 
South Africa, returned a praise- 
worthy 72. Watson, succinctly. 
said:*T survived — I finished P 

Lee Trevino took a poll 
among the players and he 
reported that the considered 
opinion was that par for the day 
was 77. In fact the average score 
for the 136th golfers who com- 
pleted the course — six groups 

were compelled to return yes- 
terday morning to finish their 
first rounds — was 77,55. That 
was at least a comforting 
thought lor Sandy Lyle and 
Pcoer Oosierbuis. who each 
scored 7S. 

Tom Watson, another late 
sianer yesterday, presented an 
altogether more ominous view, 
as fer as his rivals were con- 
cerned. after piecing together his 
first round of 72. “1 loved it," 
said Watson, who has won five 
British Opens. "It is my 
favourite weather. I wasn’t too 

Try telling that to Andy 
North, the defending champion, 
and John Mahaflfey, the Tour- 
nament Players champion, who 
both took 79, and 10 the other 
players for whom talk of die first 
round was an intrusion into 
private grief.

Morgan changes direction 
and finds Ids success 

Queen Elizabeth Cup, she de- 
scribes Thursday night as her 
best win ever. **I beat the lot,

the high class field which in- 
cluded Michael Whitaker on 
Next Araanada and, most nota- 
bly. last year's winner. Malcolm 
Pyrah, on -Towerlands 
Angtezarke who bad to settle for 
runner-up this year. 

Miss Fountain, who is very 
much a one man band — her 
only “groom” is a friend who 
comes in the mornings — was 
very disappointed last year 
when she went to tbe Swedish 
Nations Cup meeting with Ned 
Kelly but was not picked for the 
team. This year she did not put 
herself on the list for going 
abroad. “You miss so much 
here.” she said yestciday, “and 
with the qualification for this 
show and the Horse of the Year 
Show being so difficult you can't 
afford to miss too many shows.”

At a lime of life when most 
tournament players are thinking 
about stepping off the pro- 
fessional tour and seeking the 
security of a dub job, John 
Morgan is taking the bus in an 
opposite direction. And bis 
change of route took him the 
right way yesterday, when he 
opened up an early second- 
round lead in the Jersey Open 
Championship at La Moye. 
finishing on 133, which is 1 1 
under par. 

Morgan, aged 42, who has 
flirted with making his living 
both on the circuit and behind 
the counter in various pro- 
fessional shops, has, after 18 
years without a win in Europe, 
committed himself to the tour- 
nament life. “1 have had various 
club jobs, but have never been 
really happy.” he said. “My 
problem is that I am not a very 
good business man, but I think I 
am a pretty good golfer, and 
once you get the ball rolling on 
tbe tour you cannot stop and go 

From Mel Webb Jersey 

back to the dub to give a few 
lessons to the members.” 

A former teacher from Liver- 
pool, Morgan had put himself in 
a good position on the first day. 
when a 65 put him into joint 
third place behind the leader 
Gordon Brand Jr. He further 
consolidated his place yesterday 
with a round of 68. including six 
birdies, four of which came in 
an inward half of 33, to lead by 
three strokes in the club house. 

But Morgan could not feel 
secure with his lead, with the 
defending champion. Howard 
Clark, having produced bis sec- 
ond 68 of the tournament to 
share second place with the 
Australian, Peter Fowler, and 
with Brand Jr. — M under par 
after 30 holes. 

At the other end of the field 
was the Scot Billy McCoIl. who 
experienced the misery of the 
weekend hacker when he took 
an II at the par-three third hole 
(1 88 yards). McCoIl, aged 29, 
put his tee shot wide, chipped 
into a bunker, then took seven 

shots to get out. including a two- 
stroke penalty when his third 
abortive attempt to dear the 
hazard saw the ball roll back and 
hit his foot. 

He eventually got onto the 
green with his ninth shot, com- 
pleted the hole with two putts, 
and within a few minutes had 
gone from level par to eight 
over. “I could have spent all 
week in there” McCoIl said. “1 
very nearly did.” They say golf

he might, just could not see the 
joke yesterday.

Over the Down Under moon 

The British women's amateur 
championship at West Sussex. 
Pulborqugh- provides the nov- 
elty of the first Australia-New 
Zealand final in a history going 
back to 1893. If Louise Briers, 
an Australian of long experi- 
ence, was perhaps always a 
potential finalist in the top half 
of the draw, the arrival of 
Mamie McGuire on this exalted 
stage defies all expectation. 

She is only 17. playing in 
Britain for the first time, ana her 
first goal she explained after 
beating Regine La u lens, of 
Switzerland, in the semi-final, 
had been to gel through the 
stroke-play qualifying. 

By John Hennessy 

She has beaten in succession 
four difficult opponents in the 
Scottish champion. Belle 
Robertson, the second seed, Pat 
Smillie. the Western Australian 
champion, Ericka Maxwell, and 
the runner-up in 1983. Miss 
Lauiens. She is the first New 
Zealander to reach the final. 

Miss McGuire had a ding- 
dong tussle with the formidable 
Miss Lauiens and there was 
never more than a hole in it 
either way until the young New 
Zealander, a slip of a thing, who 
will offer a sharp contrast 
physically today to the powerful 
Mrs Briers, won at the 1 7th. 

Miss McGuire recorded a rare 

birdie over the ravine of the 
16th. hitting a 5-wood to 20 feet, 
and won the next with another 
birdie. This was out of range for 
all but the biggest hitters and she 
mastered it by way of a drive. 4- 
wood and a pilch from 50 yards 
to five feeL 

Mrs Briers pul out the two 
remaining British hopes, beat-

and Caroline Pierce by two 
holes. .

Craven urges players to ignore ban 

Beating a tactical retreat from 
international rugby indignation 
over its rebel tour operations. 
Sooth Africa has amwHnoed its 
abandonment of clandestine ef- 
forts to arrange farther tours 
this year. Whether this turns out 
to be another smokescreen, or 
san ply an honest admission of 
short term defeat, remains to be 

The attitudes of world rugby 
administrators, particularly 
those in the British Isles, to- 
gether with the country's rapidly 
worsening security image, were 
the prime reasons for the chssge 
of plan, according to Dr Danie 
Craven, Sooth Africa's rugby 
chairman. Dr Craven con-

detuned as “an insult to South 
Africa'', England and Ireland's 
temporary ban on their players 
taking part is rugby matches 
there, but maintained that 
officials' attitudes were becom- 
ing increasingly irrelevant 

He called on the players 
either to speak oat publicly 
against their onions' positions, 
or else simply defy them and 
come anyway. “After all, its tbe 
players who are now going to 
dictate rugby's fiitnre/'Dr Cra- 
ven told The Times. 

The English and Irish action 
was acknowledged as a setback 
to a possible tour from the 
British Isles by Naiad's rugby 

manager, Roger Gardner, who 
haBs from Wales. His union had 
also had to shelve plans for a 
predominantly French team, and 
were unable to secure an Austra- 
lian squad. As revealed by The 
Tunes this week, that prospec- 
tive visit now depends on 
Australia’s response to an of- 
ficial Sooth African invitation 
for next year. 

Natal was arranging a series 
oi fire matches, two against the 
Springboks, ostensibly to cele- 
brate the opening of Durban's 
new grandstand buer this year. 
Though “tbe climate had turned 
against the project*', Mr Gard- 
ner saud another effort would be 
made should conditions alter.

is less certain. The match sen for the first Test Robinson 
starts at Headingley next would be unlucky to be left out 


As captain, Gatling is co-

can have an inhibiting eftect

If Robinson is dropped. 
Slack or Broad would proba-

pitch their game in a low key, 
though there are enough 
stroke-makers around for that 
to matter less than it might 
The same goes for Athey, who 
has been making runs and is 
back on the shortlist as the 
likeliest replacement for

Richards and Rhodes have 
more to recommend them 
than French and Russell. If 
Rhodes does have the class 
and the character he is said to, 
it is not a bit too early to play 
him. He is 22, and it was much 
to England's advantage that 
Knott began his Test career 
when he was 21. 

Just as he did at Headingley 
a year ago, John Lever comes 
into the reckoning as a fine 
bowler well suited to the 
conditions usually to be found 
there. Although past the age 
when most fastish bowlers put 
their feet up — he is 37 — he 
has already taken more wick-

should get even with India

Lever is too old to go to 
Australia in the winter.! can 
see a situation in which 
Gatling is allowed Lever or 
Downton as his one bisque.- 

There is not a lot of point in 
naming a second spinner for

even one did much good 
there, and seven years since 
two were included. The last

Trouble for

As Robin Knox-Johnston

writes). Philip and Frances

cross beam on their catamaran. 

Britain'* offer to carry out and 
finance drug tests on all compet- 
itors az this ; year's world 
championships in Italy in Au- 
gust has been politely rejected. 
Keith Clark, chairman of the 
Modern Pentathlon Associ- 
ation, submitted the offer az a 
recent meeting in Helsinki of the 
council of the sport's governing 

In the British view drug abuse 
was. getting out of hand and 
giving the sport unwanted pub- 
licity; it had to be stamped out 
once and for afi. The suspicion 
.of drug-testing irregularities at 
the Los Angeles Olympics has 
yet to be satisfactorily cleared 

The council felt that 10 check 
ah 64 competitors at the world 
championships in Montecatini 
Tenni would riot only be an 
admission that the sport was 
drug-ridden but would also be 
going far beyond what any other 
spon was doing. 

“As it is. we have been testing 
six competitors after each of the 
disciplines, which . is a higher . 
number than in any other of the 
Olympic sports,** Clark said. 
“Blit because- of the British 
initiative in this the council 
decided to increase the number 
of those tested in Italy to 12 after 
the shooting event,” 

In another step .to put the 
sport’s : affairs in order, the 

counril decided that drug checks 
would in future be carried out at 
only lOC-accreditcd lab- 
oratories. This was not the case 
at the Los Angeles Games, after 
which there were allegations of 
missing drug samples and bro- 
ken bottles. Because of the new 
decision, should anything go 
wrong in future tests the lab- 
oratory concerned will lose their 
IOC accreditation, a patronage 
highly valued.

mingham international contest, 
Harvey Cain, of the tinned

The ' Springboks . had been 
made aware, that winning the.

“dying" rugby scene, threatened 
with total isolation.' Now foreign 
players are “queuing op" say

and Britain. 

But there is a wider political 
dimension to the issue. The 
whole operation is being 
“indirectly" poosored by the 
South African government, says 
a leading spokesman for the 
ruling National Party's more 
enlightened (“vertigte”) whag, 
Mr Stoffel van der Merwe, MP. 

He made little secret of the 
fact that the government have 
given financial encouragement 
to the tour. The main sponsoring 
company for it and for the two 
rebel cricket tours by the 
Australians have been Yellow 
Pages, who have a gover nm ent 
contract that gives teem the 
monopoly of the lucrative 
commercial, telephone advertis- 
ing. Keeping the gove rnm ent 
happy can only help ensure that 
the. lucrative contract is renewed 
and kept profitable each year. In 
any case, generons -tax con- 
cessions are is tee pipeline for 
sponsors ’ of government-ap- 
proved international lass. 

AD this makes the sponsor- 
ship of about emi- 

. “adaptations'* • while public 
- attention lias been focused on 
sports events; and it is also true 
that (he gradual removal of 
apartheid barriers hi sport has

“cause and. effect" relationship 
here has not oondnsively been 

. A pro Mem for South Africa 
might come if and when the 
hardliners arrange more toms in 
rebellion against the Inter- 
national Rugby Board. If that

will be greatly - strengthened, 
says Sooth -Africa's politically 
moderate ragby chairman. Dr 
Danie Craven, now himself be- 
leaguered from the right He 
believes the extremists win feed 
voraooudy on a go-it-alone 
confrontational approach. 

There is. Indeed, a danger, 
acknowledged by Mr van der 
Merwe, that the extreme right 
wing wOT try to exploit rebel 
tours as demonstrations that 
defiance, pot accommodation, is 
a more successful response to 
world pressure. The National 
Party believe that argument will 
•carry relatively lime weight, 
since it wifi b e. w idely ram gp ne d 
that it was the government that 
facilitated the tight-back.

different light by' .black South 
Africans, as those New Zealand-

the air 
for Belgium 

Both the Belgian and Rus- 
sian World Cup squads have 
suffered set-backs over the Iasi 
few da vs as they prepare for 
their second-round meeting in 
Leon tomorrow. In the Bel- 
gian camp tension has been 
high among the players fol- 
lowing a disappointing run of 
results. For the Russians their 
main fears surround the 
health of Lobanovsky. their 
manager, who was taken to 
hospital complaining of chest 
and stomach pains. 

Despite reports to the con- 
trary. Guy Thys, the Belgium 
manager, was quick to refute 
suggestions yesterday of a rift 
between his players. Discuss- 
ing harsh criticism levelled at 
his team-mates by Van Der 
Elst, the Belgian sweeper. 
Thys said: "It has been 
cleared: it is over. It's abso- 
lutely no big deal.” 

Van Der Hst, left out of the 
team for Wednesday's 2-2 
draw against Paraguay, had 
pulled no punches. He had 
said that relations within the 
team were like a sore that was 
*■ certain to continue festering 
and certain not to heap. He 
also accused some players of 
faking injuries to avoid play- 
ing in particular positions. 

With players sniping at each 
other over poor performances 
- a 2-1 defeat by the hosts and 
a 2-1 victory over Iraq — and 
Thys accusing them of "acting 
like children", the atmosphere 
in the camp gradually wors- 
ened. Now Thys hopes his 
problems with the players are 
behind him as he plans his 
strategy against the Russians 
in a bid to reach the quarter- 

Despite that he is uncom- 
mitted on a starling line-up as 
several players are still recov- 
ering from injury. 
Vandenbergh. Thys's star for- 
ward. is still troubled by an 
injury to his right knee. Others 
are suffering from a variety of 
ailments including Desmet 
(gastro-enterilisl. the veteran 
defender. Eric Genets (twisted 
ankle), and Vandereycken, the 
midfield general, who has an 
injury to his left knee. 

Excluded from the Russian 
side will be Larionov, the first- 
choice right hack, who is ruled 
out of the rest of the tourna- 
ment after injuring a thigh in 
training. The Zenit Leningrad 
defender was one of only three 

in the first team who do not 
play for Dy namo Kiev. Nikita 
Simonian, the squad manager, 
was not too disappointed, 
however. He said: “We have 
22 players and whoever re- 
places Larionov will do well." 

Larionov's injury followed 
the scare over Lobanovsky. 
who replaced Eduard 
Malofeycv as manager just 
three weeks before the tourna- 
ment got under way. After the 
manager had returned from 
hospital a spokesman said his 
condition was not serious 
although he was feeling a 
"little weak". 

In tomorrow's other sec- 
ond-round match Bulgaria 
take on Mexico in the Azteca 
Stadium in Mexico City vow- 
ing to make up for some 
miserable performances so 
far. Bulgaria qualified as the 
third team from Group A. 
picking up only two points. 
Their manager. Ivan Vuisov. 
admitted: “The way we quali- 
fied was not the bcsL but well 
lake it. I'm just relieved we've 
come through. 

Vutsov's comments 
amounted, almost, to the 
equivalent of a speech. So far 
he and the rest of the Bulgari- 
an party have shunned the 
Press and trained behind 
closed doors. The East Euro- 
peans drew 1-1 with Itaiy in 
the tournament's inaugural 
match, then drew 1-1 with 
South Korea before losing 2-0 
to Argentina. 

Big audience 
for England 

More people watched the 
England v Portugal match on 
BBC television last week than 
any game screened at the 1 982 
World Cup. 

Although the match did not 
kick-otf in Britain until 1 1.0 
pm. a total of 11.65 million 
people saw England's opening 
game in the World Cup (a 1-0 
defeat), according to figures 
released by the Broadcasting 
Audience Research Board. 


Mexico City (Reuter) — 
Referees were told to take 
tougher measures against the 
hard men of the World Cup 
after being too lax early in the 


A spokesman for the Inter- 
national Football Federation 
(FIFA). Guido Tognoni. said: 
“Our general feeling was that 
the referees did not follow 
FI FA's instructions. They 
were too lax. We wanted to see 
the ball players get more 
protection. The referees were 
not quick enough in pulling 
out their cards.” 

Tognoni said Sepp Blatter, 
the FIFA general secretary, 
had decided after the first few 
days to intervene. “The refer- 
ees were then instructed to be 
more strict in interpreting the 
rules. Now we feel the referee- 
ing standards are higher than 
in manv past World Cups. It's 
also been a pretty clean tour- 
nament so far.” 

Not everyone agrees. 
Spain's manager, Miguel Mu- 
noz. still smarting over the no- 
goal decision against Brazil 
when a Spanish shot appeared 
to have crossed the goalline, 
criticized the refereeing in all 
three of Spain’s first-round 

Evaristo Macedo. Iraq's 
Brazilian manager, who had 
three of his best players sus- 
pended before the last match 
against Mexico, blamed FIFA 
for bad refereeing and called 
for the resignation of Harry 
Cavan, of Northern Ireland, 
the chairman of FIFA's 
referees* commission. 

Other managers have criti- 
cized the fact that some bad 
fouls have gone unpunished 
while players have been 
booked for time-wasting, 
over-zealous celebration of 
goals or arguing 

Gordon Strachan, the Scot- 
land midfield player, received 
a yellow card for running over 
to an advertising boarding 
after scoring. Other players, 
including the Bulgarian scor- 
er. Nasko Sirakov, in the 
opening game against Italy. 
Diego Maradona, of Argenti- 
na. and the Mexicans. Luis 
Flores and Fernando Quirarte, 
leapt over the hoardings with- 
out being booked. 

Tognoni defended the split- 
second decision by the Austra- 
lian referee. Chris Bam bridge, 
in disallowing the Spanish 
goal against Brazil and the fact 
that Bambridge did not con- 
sult the linesman. 

Three for England to watch 

Romero. Cabanas and Fer- 
nandez are names that will

gland manager. Bobby Rob-

of the Year, Romero (he plays

And Roberto Fernandez

he saved a last-minute penalty 
from the top Mexican player, 
Hugo Sanchez. 

Robson recalled that before 
he left England a South Amer- 
ican journalist wanted him:

They could be better than 
Brazil, Argentina and

Brazil to 
keep Zico 
on bench 

Brazil's Zico, who made a 
fleeting but telling appearance 
on the World Cup stage 
against Northern Ireland on 
Thursday — coming on as a 
substitute for Socrates in the 
68th minute and setting up 
Brazil's third goal for Careca 
with a delightful back-heel — 
is unlikely to be risked for a 
full game against Poland in 
the second-round match in 
Guadalajara on Monday. 

“Physically, Zico is still not 
100 per cent fit so for the next 
game my immediate plans are 
to start with him on the 
bench,” the Brazilian coach. 
Tele Santana, said. “Zico 
proved that, even though be is 
not totally fit, intelligence and 
technique are great weapons in 
football, as be proved with his 
back-heel pass. 

“Northern Ireland played 
the usual British style but we 
managed to neutralize them 
and I think it was Brazil's best 
game. We created chances and 
managed to score three. In our 
previous matches we also cre- 
ated chances but missed most 
of them.” 

Asked whether he thought 
Brazil's slow game was now 
out of date, compared with the 
swift play of European teams 
like Denmark, Sairtana said: 
“You cannot compare the 
Brazilian style with that of the 
Europeans. We play slower, 
setting the pace of the game as 
we want it and that's how we 
won three world titles - we 
can't change now.” 

Brazil's performance against 
Northern Ireland has corn iced 
Jairzinho, the forward who 
scored in ail six of Brazfl's 
games in the 1970 finals, that 
his country can win again in 
Mexico. “Even though Brazil 
are not so brilliant I still pick 
them as favourites to win the 
Cup,” he said. 

Billy Bingham, the North- 
ern Ireland manager, said: “I 
would like to congratulate 
Brazil. They scored two un- 
stoppable goals and they 
would have scored them no 
matter what tactics we had 
tried. W’e gave our best shot in 
the second period playing 
more offensively, but when you 
have to play offensively 
against Brazil it's very danger- 
ous, as they are capable of 
launching fast counter- 

Each Brazilian player will 
receive $20,000 (about 
£13,300) for reaching the sec- 
ond round in first place, Jose 
Maria Marin, the head of the 
Brazilian delegation, said. 

Brazilian win 
sparks Rio 

Rio de Janeiro (AJP) — Bra- 
zilians celebrated wildly here 
on Thursday night after the 
national team had registered 
their third win in the World 
Cup in Mexico. 

Seconds alter the 3-0 victory 
over Northern Ireland, confet- 
ti and the cracking of fire- 
works filled the air in cities 
and towns throughout the 
country, and thousands of 
jubniaut fans took to the 
streets to celebrate. 

Rio's famed Copacabana 
beach was packed with thou- 
sands of supporters, many 
waring the Brazilian Sag and 
dressed in yellow and green, 
the national colours. Fire- 
works lit the sky. 

Tv Bandeirantes,a commer- 
cial television network, broad- 
cast similar street scenes from 
Sao Paulo, Salvador and other 
state capitals. The network 
reported that spontaneous cel- 
ebrations were occurring 
across the country. j 

Northern Ireland in search 
of a pathfinder in midfield 

As Pat Jennings walked 
tearfully from the field of the 
Jalisco Stadium here after 
collecting his work) record 
1 19th and final cap we were 
reminded that it was the end 
of an era. At least four or five 
of the Northern Ireland play- 
ers who finished distinctly 
second best to the lavishly 
skilled Brazilians will never 
see a World Cup first hand 
again. And the rebuild! 
towards that new I talian 
must start very soon. 

Among those who are 
nearing the end of a highly 
successful international career 
is Sammy Mdlroy. the 31- 
year-old captain in succession 
to Martin O'Neill, who was 
prevented from making the 
trip because of injury. 
Mdlroy, who received his 
87th cap. is honoured today by 
also receiving the MBE for his' 
services to the game. 

The career of Mcilroy, the 
last of the Busby Babes, began 
with Manchester United when 
he joined the club as a 1 5-year- 
old. He made his debut two 
years later and in the following 
1 3 years played more than 400 
League and Cup games and 
won three FA Cup medals, 
one winners* and two numers- 

The midfield, having al- 
ready lost O’Neill, could be 
further depleted, though the 
sprightly displays of McCreery 
suggest that there might be 
some life left in the little 
fellow's legs left He is 28. 

Hamilton's season at dub 
and country level has been 
seriously ravaged by injury 
and it could be that we will 
never again see the 29-year- 
old forward climbing those 
peaks he scaled in Spain four 
years ago amid such publidty. 
Another of the heroes of the 
last Mundial, Armstrong, has 
already lost his place in the 
first eleven. At the age of 32 he 
may also have bid his farewell 
in the international arena 
when the Chesterfield player 
was brought on for the last few 
minutes as substitute to share 
the same field as the Brazil- 
ians. The right back, NicholL 
as smooth and serene as ever, 
cannot, at 29. continue much 
longer at thehighest level. - 

The future does not look too 
bright for the Irish. At the 
moment there are no midfield 
players on the horizon to even 
hint at the skills of Mcilroy or 
O'Neill, the ability of whom to 
keep possession and to use the 
ball with real effect cannot be 
underestimated. But if anyone 
is irreplaceable it must be the 
41 -year-old Jennings who cel-

more than any other were 
responsible for Northern Ire-

Jennings: End of an era 

Third of March Stadium that 
any ambitious young interna- 
tional goalkeeper would have 
been pleased to make. What 
would Denmark, for all their 
outfield riches, give to have 
Jennings, even at 41. between 
their posts? 

Northern Ireland have no 
obvious replacement. 

Jennings's deputy- is Platt, 
another once-nne goalkeeper, 
who now concentrates on 
managerial duties with 
Coleraine. The thirdgoalkeep- 
er here was the 20-year-oki 
Hughes who has yet to play for 
his country and yet to find a 
settled dub home. Leeds Unit- 
ed loaned him out to Bury last 

Billy Bingham, the Irish 
manager, himself has received 
offers to move elsewhere, 
roost recently one from Saudi 
Arabia, but he would want to 
retain his part-time position 
with Northern Ireland if at all 

possible. He said he bad Socrates (sub: Zico), L Muller (sub: 
refused offers from Israel for j.*™. 

Bingham's own perfor- 
mance here could not be 
faulted though there was a 
strong lobby supporting the 
return to the side of 
McClelland. Bingham’s expla- 
nation is that be was unwilling 
to disturb a central defensive 
partnership which had not 
failed him in eight games up to 
these finals. Against Spain, 
though. O'Neill and McDon- 
ald were. . caught horribly 
square on the opening 65- 
second Spanish goal But 
Bingham believed that it was 
sharp one-twos executed by 
top quality forwards which 
brought about his team's 
downfall on a lack of pace in 
the heart of his defence. The 
even-tempered Donagby was 
perhaps the most succesful 
Irish defender. 

In attack, always something 
of a problem for the Irish. 
Whiteside's mobility seemed 
greatly restricted by a knee 
injury which will, now require 
an exploratory operation bade 
home. It has. been a disap- 
pointing tournament for Man- 
chester United’s midfield 
player who became the youn- 
gest player ever to appear in 
the finals of a World Cup four 
years ago at the age of 1 7 years 
and 41 days. 

Bingham considers that 
their World Cup challenge 
withered in the first half 
against Algeria when they 
failed to consolidate their 
early- goal advantage. Defen- 
sive play of five across the 
middle against Brazil was 
calculated to contain them to 
no more than a single goal and 
then, hopefully, to strike back 
at a later stage for the draw 
that they required to progress 
to the second round. 

But Brazil’s early first goal 
undermined those plans and 
with hindsight it is difficult to 
imagine such gifted individ- 
uals as the Brazilians going 90 
minutes without finding the 
target on a couple of occa- 
sions. giving the possession 
that was surrendered to them.

whom these problems of tele- 
vised football are made. “The 
nation expected more than 
that!” “In the words of the ^ 
song, Gome on Northern 
Ireland!" “These men who 
bear the hopes of a 
nation— who know that tonight 

Fn cianH Expects.” IdD St 

John was red-eved after one 
Scotland defeat. Emlyn 
Hughes was doing his out 
after one of the England flops, 
and another made Mike 
Chanson's m9A staring eyes 
serious cause for alarm. 

Jimmy Hill invited ns “to 
take some pride in England's 
performance”. Why pride? 
Pleasure, perhaps, yes, tons of 
that Bat is all football presen- 
tation based on the unspoken 
ass u m p tion that there is some- 
thing high, holy, right and 
good about cheering for the 
England football team? Or 
Swvfta wrf and Northern Ire- 
land as second best? We may, 
perhaps, be England support- 
ers — but that is no better 
morally than befog Arsenal 
supporters. (Weft, maybe a bit 
better than that, but yon see 
what I mean.} 

Televised football always 
has a slightly uncomfortable 
time of it in the summer when 
you compare it with cricket 
coverage. Cricket commenta- 
tors do not 09 overboard with 
blithe jingoism. They don't 
say: “Here comes DOtey and a 
whole nation is hoping that be 4 
Can really rip the stuffing out * 
of all these little brown 

Moronic patriotism is offen- 
sive and nasty. Its place is on 
Nations! Front stickers, on the 
walls of the Gents in seedy 
pubs — not on national televi- 
sion. Bigotry is as nasty in 
sport as ft is in wider political 
arenas. In television news 
coverage, so violent a national 
bias would be unthinkable. In 
sport die unacceptable is ac- 
cepted - revelled in while 
England's fascist louts follow 
football across Europe and the 

Sport Is a pleasure and we 
can drink deep and heavy 
draughts of it as we enjoy’ the 
shock-honor success of the 
team we support But we do not 
need these draughts mixed 
with the poison of jingoism.

Munoz vents 
his anger 
on referees 

■Spain completed their 
Group D matches with a 3-0 
win against Algeria in Monter- - 
rey that gave them second 
place behind Brazil. Ramon 
Caldere scored twice and sub- 
stitute, Jose Olaya, added 
another but Miguel Munoz. ^ 
their manager, was unhappy at w ‘ 
some crude Algerian tackling. 

“I understood referees were 
instructed to try to stop foul 
play but we saw little of this 
today,” fie said. “Three of my 
team — Salinas. Butraguciio 
and Michel — were injured 
and I don’t known when they 
will be fit again. All I hope is 
that in the. next round we will 
have a referee who wifi a ppW 
the rules and protect us.” 

Ironically, the worst injury’ 
was suffered by the Algerian 
goalkeeper. Nasser Drid, who 
was taken to hospital with 
chest and shoulder trouble 
following a challenge bv* 
Andom Goicoechea.
