mark Soweto 

From Michael Hornsby, Johannesburg 

The official death toll in phers were forbidden by the claimed responsibility for the 
mtinuing violence in South police, in terms of the emer- bombing, Mr Meliet said, but 


continuing violence in South 
Africa since the imposition of 
a national state of emergency 
on Thursday reached 22 at the 
weekend as the country braced 
itself for the tenth anniversary 
today of the 1976 Soweto 
uprising. 

Three of the dead, all wom- 
en, were killed by a car bomb 
which exploded late on Satur- 
day outside a restaurant on a 
stretch of the Durban beach- 
front known as the Golden 
Mile. 

- .Sixty-tune people, mostly 
white, were injured, mainly by 
flying glass. 

The Deputy Minister of 
Information, Mr Louis Nei, 
described the bombing as “a 
ghastly attack of terror,” 
aimed at creating “panic 
among the population at 
large”. He urged Western 
countries to acknowledge that 
“terrorism is a worldwide 
scourge” which could not be 
condoned anywhere. 

The casualty figures were 
given at a press conference in 
Pretoria by Mr Leon Meliet, a 
senior official in the 
Government's Bureau for In- 
formation, which is the only 
official source of information 
about incidents of violence 
and unrest. 

The Addington Hospital in 
Durban, where many of the 
injured were taken, said it had 
instructions not to release any 
information aboat casualties. 

Hehneted troops carrying 
rifles ringed off the area of the 
explosion, and press photogra-

Photographs and television

were made available yesterday 
evening by the Bureau for

According to Mr Meliet, 
those killed were two white 
women, aged 22 and 28, who 
died instantly, and an Indian 
woman, of about 30, who died 
soon after- being admitted to 
hospital.

“it falls in line with the

Congress's) adopted policy of 
bitting soft targets". 

The only previous car 
bombing— for which the AN C 
did accept responsibility — 
was in Pretoria in 1983. and 
occurred outside the head- 
quarters of the Air Force, 
killing 19 people, and injuring

had been left in a blue Ford

The bomb also damaged 
two hotels on either side of the 
restaurant and destroyed or

noon yesterday. He said four 
of the dead were “black mod-

and three had been killed 
during anti-riot action by the 
police.

Chernobyl 

managers 

dismissed 

Moscow (Renter) — The 
Soviet Communist Party has 
dismissed two top managers at 
the Chernobyl nuclear plant, 
Pravda said yesterday in a 
report disclosing the foist pun-, 
ishment of senior officials 
since the April 26 accident. 

The newspaper said a meet- 
ing of the Kiev region party 
had been called to discuss 
problems with the rescue oper- 
ation. It dismissed the plant's 
director, V. Bryukhanov, and 
chief engineer, N. Fomin. 

“In the difficult tirenm- 
stances of the accident, they 
were not able to provide 
correct and firm leadership 
and necessary discipline, they 
showed irresponsibility and 
mismanagement," Pravda 
said. “They did not manage to 
evaluate what had happened 
and to take key measures in 
organizing efficient work in all 
sections at the time to elimi- 
nate the consequences of the 
accident.” 

The head of the government 
commission looking into the 
disaster has Mamed local offi- 
cials for giving Moscow an 
incorrect assessment of what 
happened. Moscow came tra- 
der international criticism for 
not releasing information until 
two days after the accident 
The Kiev meeting also criti- 
| cized the party organization at 
the plant for the first time, 
saying it conld have done 
more. . 

Instead of monitoring the 
general situation around the 
plant, the party became too 
involved In day-to-day mat- 
ters, which should have been 
left to management, it said. 

Moscowoffitials have ac- 
knowledged that it took local 
officials 36 honrs to begin 
evacuating people from the 18- 
m3e security zone around the 
'plant. 

Both party and management 
had failed to tackle one of the 
most pressing problems — 
replacing people who had left 
their fobs at tire plant and not 
re tinned, Pravda said. 

“Because of a lack of organi- 
zational and ideological work 
with people, up to now a part of 
tire work-force at tire station is 
‘on the run.”’ Among them 
was a deputy director of the 
plant, R. Solovyov, and several 
shift leaders and senior 
technicians. 

Pravda also criticized trade, 
anion and party youth groups 
at tire plant for what it called 
lack of discipline. 


“positive” letter (o Mr 
Mikhail Gorbachev, the Sovi- 
et leader, urging that prepara- 
tions be started for a summit 
conference here. 

Senior officials confirmed 
at the weekend that Mr Rea- 
gan suggested Mr George 
Shultz, the Secretary of State, 
meet Mr Eduard Shevard- 
nadze. the Soviet Foreign 
Minister, anywhere in Europe 
to prepare the agenda. 

The letter, said to be in the 
spirit of the warm exchanges 
between the two leaders at the 
time of the Geneva Summit, 
was written last month and 
delivered -by Mr Arthur 
Hartman, the US Ambassador 
in Moscow.. No reply has yet 
been received". 

The Russians have refused 
to "set 3 date for the summit, 
originally proposed for this 
month, because of the lack of 
progress in arms control talks. 
News of Mr Reagan's message 
comes after a week of contu- 
sion within the Administra- 
tion over arras control 
policies, especially the status 
of the unratified and expired 
Salt! 

Mr Gorbachov was taken 
aback by the letter. “What do 
you make of this?” he said to 
Mr Leonid Zamyatin, the 
Soviet Ambassador to Lon- 
don, who was with him when 
the letter was delivered. “The 
President writes one thing, but 
says another thing about Salt.” 

The Soviet leader’s confu- 
sion was described yesterday 
by Dr Annand Hammer, the 
veteran chairman of Occiden- 
,tal and long-standing confi- 
dent of the Kremlin, who has 
frequently attempted to play 
the role of mediator in East- 
West relations. 

He told The Times yester- 
day: “I met President Reagan

‘Positive’ Reagan 
seeks summit date 

From Michael Binyon, Washington i 

President Reagan has sent a at (he theatre last week ini 


Washington. During the inter- 
. mission he told me be was still 
awaiting a reply from Gorba- 
chov to his letter. It was a 
warm, friendly letter in which 
he also expressed his sympa- 
thy for the misfortune over 
ChemobyL” 

Dr Hammer decided to use 
his influence to try to resched- 
ule the meeting, cancelled in 
May. between Mr Shultz and 
Mr Shevardnadze. 

He realized, he said, that 
last week's conflicting state- 
ments in Washington on Salt 
would create even greater 
confusion in Moscow on 
American intentions. So while 
in London he went to see Mr 
Zamyatin on Friday. 

At the same time he called 
on Mrs Thatcher, who was, in 
his words, -‘startled” to learn 
that the White House had just 
contradicted President Rea- 
gan’s Wednesday press confer- 
ence statements on Salt by 
saying the treaty was dead. “Is 
this so?" she said, turning to 
her aides. 

“I would hope she commu- 
nicated with the President and 
with Mr Shultz to get a 
clarification” Dr Hammer 
said. “Thai seems to be the 
reason for Mr Shultz denying 
on Friday that Salt was dead 
and praising recent Soviet 
arms proposals.” 

When he told Mr Zamyatin 
that Washington was still 
wailing for some movement at 
Geneva, he replied movement 
could come only from the top. 

Dr Hammer said he had 
told Mr Reagan that if only he 
and Mr Gorbachov could take 
a walk together at Camp 
David, they could get things

a case of bring the two parties

John Spencer, a schoolboy

Spencer has been playing

the prospect of him turning 
professional on fan; 16 th birth- 
day in September and playing

Many Rangers fens use 
matches to voice to an array of

Mr David Miller, Secretary 
of the Association of Rangers 
Supporters Clubs, made it 
clear that dd habits die hard, 
although an exception might 
be made for Spencer. 

“We are led to believe that 
while John Spencer went to a

conclusion is that for decades

cient talent 

That public stance elidted a 
typically wry comment from 
Jock Stein, then manager of 
Rangers' highly successful 
arcb-rirals, Celtic. 

When asked whom he would 
choose between a Catholic and 
a Protestant of equal abilities, 
he replied: “I'd take the 
Protestant because Rangers 
would never sign the 
Catholic.”

A study of the practical 
options for replacing the Po- 
laris nuclear deterrent is to be 
set in band by Mr David Steel 
and Dr David Owen as part of 
the process to heal the differ- 
ences within the Alliance over 
defence. 

A solution under which 
Britain would remain a 
nuclear power but only by 
contributing to a European 
nuclear force is already being 
suggested by significant fig- 
ures in both parties as a way of 
preventing the issue dogging 
the Alliance's prospects at the 
next general election. 

Mr Steel has pleased SDJ* 
leaders by indicating his readi- 
ness to engage in a technical 
appraisal of the options for 
replacing Polaris, an issue not 
covered by the Alliance joint 
commission on defence which 
reported last week. 

But he has made plain that 
such an exercise would be 
without prejudice to a deci- 
sion on whether Polaris 
should be replaced at all. 

Mr Steel's agreement to 
such a move may further 
upset those in his parly who l 
feel he has moved too far to 
accommodate Dr Owen. But 
the line he has taken over the 
controversial commission re- 
port received important back- 
ing at the weekend from his 
party council meeting in 
Wigan. 

Faced with the delicate task 
of satisfying the party activists 
so soon after the report's 
publication, Mr Steel deliv- 
ered a speech which was seen 
in parts to be critical of Dr 
Owen's style, but he crushed a 
move inspired by the Liberal 
CND organization to throw 
out the report and prevent it 
going forward for debate with- 
in the party. 

He said the suggestipn that 
the Alliance could live with

Tory MP faces 
fight with local 
activists on 

reselection 

By Philip Webster Chief Political Correspondent 


A Conservative MP is fac- 
ing the threat of removal by 
constituency activists because 
of his opposition to the Gov- 
.. eminent on several issues, 
'most notably its support for 
the American bombing of 
Libya. 

A simmering dispute be- 
tween Sir Anthony Meyer and 
his constituency association of 
Clywd North-West will come 
to a head on June 27 when a 
'motion proposing his rcadop- 
tion as the party’s candidate at 
the next general election is put 
before the constituency’s exec- 
utive committee. 

Supporters of Sir Anthony, 
a former diplomat who has 
been an MP since 1970, fear 
that it will be defeated, pro- 
voking the sort of reselection 
clash usually associated with 
the Labour Party. 

Sir Anthony was the only 
Conservative MP to vote in a 
Commons debate on April 16 
against the decision to sanc- 
. tion the American air strike on 
-Libya, although several others 
abstained. 

• A few days later his 
association's “political 
committee” met and passed 
what amounted to a motion of 
-censure against Sir Anthony, 
criticizing what it regarded as 
his act of disloyalty. 

Constituency sources sug- 
gest that most of the members' 
of that committee will be at 
the executive committee hear- 
ing on June 27 and will vote 
against Sir Anthony carrying 
on after the next general 
-election. 


But Sir Anthony’s support- 
ers regard the action or his 
opponents over the Libya 
issue merely as a pretext for 
gening rid of him. It is 
accepted by both sides that he 
is well to the left of his 
constituency party, a large 
body of whom tried to stop 
him being selected before the 
last election. 

Clywd North-West was a 
new seat at the last election, 
taking in part of Sir Anthony's 
old West Flint seat Activists 
in the local party tried to get 
Miss Beta Brookes, Conserva- 
tive Euro MP for North 
Wales, selected and Sir Antho- 
ny only succeeded in winning 
the selection a few weeks 
before the election after going 
to the High Court to win the 
right to appear before a gener- 
al meeting of the constituency 
and after threatening to stand 
as an independent 

Sir Anthony's supporters 
say that he has never been 
forgiven for those actions, and 
that the Libya vote has given 
his opponents the chance they 
wanted. 

However, if the vote goes 
against him on June 27, Sir 
Anthony is said to be deter- 
mined once again to fight His 
friends say that he will not 
“pander" to right-wing ele- 
ments in his constituency. 

If. for example, the Com- 
mons vote on corporal pun- 
ishment in schools takes place 
before the key meeting. Sir 
Anthony is expected to vote 
againsL 


Anger at 
pay rise 
for UDM 

By Craig Seton 
Sir Ian MacGregor, the 
-newly-knighted chairman of 
British Coal, will face accusa- 
tions that he has held hack the 
'.growth of the moderate Union 
-of Democratic Mineworkers 
when he addresses its first 
urnmal conference tomorrow. 

Delegates who meet today 
; for a three-day conference in 
! Buxton, Derbyshire, are in- 
creasingly angry that British 
Coal has failed to find a 
formula to pay all of the 
' union's 35,000 members a 5.9 
• percent pay increase it negoti- 

- ated last November. 

British Coal has paid the 

- rise Co UDM members only 
; where they are in a majority 

- over pitmen represented by the 
National Union of 
Mineworkers at their work 

Last month an industrial 
' tribunal in Leicester ruled that 

- British Coal had acted unfair- 
' ly in paying the rise — worth 

more than £6 a week — to 
UDM members at Ellistown 
colliery in Leicestershire after 
bearing that the new union 
had fewer members than the 
NUM at die pit 
Mr Ken Toon, president of 
the UDM estimated that at 
least 4,000 UDM members 
bad not received the rise. 


Wanted 
man free 
in Dublin 

By Michael McCarthy 

A man named by British 
police as a conspirator in an 
alleged bomb plot with Patrick 
Magee, the Brighton hotel 
bomber, is living openly in 
Dublin and In dally contact 
with the Irish police yet no 
attempt has so hr been made 
to extradite him. 

The Garda Stoduna said 
yesterday that Patrick Mur- 
ray, aged 42, is named in a 
Lancashire police warrant ac- 
cusing him of conspiring with 
Magee in 1983 to bomb 
Weeton army barracks, near 
Black pooL 

Yet according to Dublin 
police sources no warrant has 
so far been received in Ireland 
seeking Murray's extradition. 

Murray is over 6ft and 
athletically bnflt. He served in 
the British Army in the Bor- 
neo campaign in the 1960s and 
is known as “The Pope” 
because of a tattoo on his 
chest. 

Last night the Home Office 
referred inquiries about the 
possibility of Murray's extra- 
dition befog sought to Lanca- 
shire police. The force said: 
“We have no comment to 
make at the moment” 


Inner-city 
task forces 
derided as 
gimmickry 

By Peter Evans 
Home Affairs 
Correspondent 

. Angry community groups 
have accused the Government 
of “cheap electioneering” by 
introduemga new approach to 
helping the inner cities. 

Civil Servants have been 
put In charge of task forces in 
eight areas as a pilot scheme tp 
co-ordinate government ini- 
tiatives, stimulate enterprise 
and strengthen local 
economies. 

Community groups were 
invited by the National Coun- 
cil for Voluntary Organiza- 
tions to meet Mr Richard 
Dykes, a Civil Servant in the 
Department of Employment, 
who heads the central unit of 
the task forces. 

Dismayed by what they 
regard as lack of consultation 
beforehand, and the inadequa- 
cy of resources, groups and 
voluntary organizations have 
been meeting since on a 
national basis. 

With a nucleus of about 50 
representatives, they believe 
that before the next election 
the Government warns to be 
seen to be “doing something 
in the inner cities, which are 
potentially their biggest trou- 
ble spots”. 

The Department of Em- 
ployment said the decision on 
the task forces “had to be 
announced quickly, and the 
Government decided they 
would go into detail after the 
announcement was made, 
rather than consult before, 
because of the urgency of the 
problems”. 

The extra money for the 
areas amounts to £8 million, 
with about £1 million of that 
going on administration. But 
Lord Young of Graflham, 
Secretary of State for Employ- 
ment, has pointed out that the 
Government was already 
million in 
year. The 
concentrate 
on getting the resources to the 
people who needed them. 

Mr Kenneth Clarke. Pay- 
master General is leading a 
team of ministers from all 
interested departments. Lord 
Young said: “We are adopting 
an entirely new approach. We 
are bringing together the ef- 
forts of the local community, 
local government, the private 
sector and central Govern- 
ment This is a partnership of 
effort But above all it is to be 
a partnership of people. 

The community groups say: 
“As it is, the initiative is seen 
as too little and ill-thought 
out, and therefore will not 
seriously do anything in the 
inner-city areas except set 
groups bidding against each 
other for a pittance" 

The task forces are in 
Notting Hill and north 
Peckham in London; 
Cbapeitown, Leeds; north cen- 
tral Middlesbrough; 
Highfields, Leicester, Moss 
Side, Manchester. St Paid's, 
Bristol; and Handsworth, 
Birmingham. 

A quarter of a million of the 
£7 million has been commit- 
ted to four projects so far. 
They include a scheme in 
Leeds which would provide 
specialized training in banks, 
building societies and other 
financial and commercial in- 
stitutions.

Channon 
diary may 
be clue 

to dealer 

By Craig Seton 

Dkrtectives believe that the 
missing diary ■ of Olivia 
Channon. daughter of Mr Paul 
Channon, Secretary of State 
for Trade and Industry, might 
disclose the identity of a nigh- . 
society drugs dealer. 

police - are convinced trot 
the diary went missing before 
they searched the house in 
Doyley Road where Miss 
Channon, who was 2 2, jived. 
Police sources said yesterday 
that the diary was thought to 
contain some information 
about Miss Channon’ s life- 
style. and could disclose 
names and addresses vital to 
the inquiry: 

. The news that the diary was 
missing came after the discov- 
ery of a “suicide” note written 
to Miss Rosie Johnston, who 
last week appeared before 
magistrates charged, with out- 
ers, with supplying Miss 
Channon with heroin. 

Yesterday Mr John Simms, 
Miss Johnston's solicitor, said 
the “suicide” letter had come 
as an “absolutely amazing 
revelation” to his client.

School aims at computer generation Mftgetra? 


By Lncy Hodges, Education Correspondent 


A preparatory school which 
sets out to teach the principles 
of engineering and technology 
to children aged from three to 
12 has been established by Sir 
Keith Joseph's political advis- 
er in Surrey's leafy Green 
Belt. 

Within weeks of losing his 
job at the Department of 
Education and Science after 
the resignation of Sir Keith, 
Mr Stuart Sextos opened the 
new Warlingham Park School 
with five pnpils aged three in 
the nursery dass. 

The schooTs prospectus 


comes with an endorsement 
from Mis Margaret Thatcher, 
the Prime Minister, who 
praises the “traditional values 
and modern technology’* 
which underpin the school's 


Fees range from £150 a term 
for the nursery chftdreo to 
£415 a term for those aged 
seven. 

For Mr Sexton, 
Warlfogham Park Is toe real- 
ization of a five-year dream. 
“My ambition is that we will 
have a generation i if children 
gro wing up who will appreci- 


ate new technology, even if 
they finish op' as actors, 
lawyers or education 
correspondents,” he said. “We 
want a generation which looks 
on computers like I used to

Teachers 9 plea on expulsion 


By Oar Education Correspondent 


Teachers are demanding a 
say in the expulsion of pupils 
from school to prevent the 
recurrence of another situa- 
tion such as the “graffiti” 
affair which affected 
Pounds wick School in 
Manchester. 

The Assistant Masters and 
Mistresses Association, which 
has 115,000 members, is to 
seek an amendment to the 
Education Bill which goes into 
its Commons committee stage 
this week. 

In its present form the Bin 
does not require school gover- 
nors and local education au- 
thorities to take any notice of 
teachers' views when they are 
are considering a pupil's ex- 


clusion from school. The only 
way that teachers can express 
their opinions is by voting 
with their feet, as they did in 
Manchester. 

Five boys were excluded 
from Pbundswick School by 
the head and governors after 
allegedly daubing insulting 
graffiti about individual 
teachers on school walls. 
Teachers refused to leach the 
boys when they were reinstat- 
ed by the citycouncxL 

The association's amend- 
ment would make it a duty for 
heads to consult their staff 
when deciding how long to, 
exdude pupils from school. It 
would give teachers the right 
to appeal to the governors 


where the local authority 
sought to reinstate a pupil 
against the judgement of the 
staff and head. 

It would place councils and 
appeal panels under an obliga- 
tion to take account of 
teachers' reports on . pupil 
behaviour when deciding 
whether to override a decision 
to exclude by the bead and 
governors. 

Mr Peter Smith, deputy 
general secretory of the associ- 
ation, said the current Bill was 
absurd. “Those .who have to . 
teach children are entitled to 
be heard and our amendment 
would give them that legal 
right” he said.

been empty for two years and

At present £25,000 has been

children eventually . 

The engineering and tech-

Mr Sexton, who has a

reassure parents that, their 
children will be receiving 
heavy doses of traditional 
grammar and spelling as well 
as lessons in history and

He wants the engineering

Vitamin in milk 
can help diabetics 

By Pearce Wright, Science Editor 


Damage caused by diabetes 
can be reversed by attention to 
diet, researchers at Glasgow 
University say. 

A group at the university's 
medical school studied eight 
types of damage, including 
disturbances of the heart, 
eyesight and muscles, and 
found that all responded to 
treatment with a vitamin 
found in human breast milk, 
but not readily available in 
other foods. 

The researchers explored 
the way in which the sub- 
stance, called gamma-linoleic 
arid, or GLA, allows repair of 
damaged nerve endings, in 
trials organized by the 
university’s Institute of Neu- 
rological Sciences. 

Under normal circum- 
stances the body absorbs lin- 
oleic add from food and 
converts it into GLA. This, in 
turn, is transformed into a 
wide range of substances, each 
of which plays an important 
rote in some part of the body. 

Previous research has 


shown that in diabetes the 
production of GLA is much 
slower than normal, and leads 
to a deprivation thought to be 
important in the cause of 
many long-term disorders as- 
sociated with the disease. 

The use of high levels of 
vegetable oils in the diet of 
diabetics has had some suc- 
cess, but is hot a satisfactory 
treatment 

The alternative tried by the 
group working with Dr A I 
Weir at Glasgow was to bypass 
the process of conversion by 
giving the GLA directly. 

The scientists used the seed 
oil from a specially-grown 
hybrid of the evening prim- 
rose, which had been bred for 
the purpose by the Efamol 
group of research laboratories. 
The hybrid has a high propor- 
tion of GLA in its seeds. 

The trials consisted of giv- 
ing capsules of five grammes 
four times a day. The re- 
searchers found __ improve- 
ments in all conditions over 
the trial. 


Prince backs blacks 


The Prince of Wales, Colo- 
nel-in-Chief of the Welsh 
Guards, is understood to have 
expressed his concern that 
there are not more blacks in 
Guards regiments. 

Buckingham Palace yester- 
day refused to confirm that 
the Prince had made his views 
known to the Array. A spokes- 
man said that it was a matter 
for the Ministry of Defence. 


but “the Prince's concern for 
the rights of ethnic minorities 
in this country is well known”. 

The ministry said: “Entry to 
all regiments or corps of the 
British Army is regardless of 
ethnic origin.” 

It is, however, a matter of 
frequent comment that black 
soldiers are seldom seen at 
major ceremonial occasions. 


Councils 
may face 
SDPaxe 

By Hugh Clayton 

Comity councils should be 
abolished, but the GLC should 
be resurrected and gives more 
power, cmmciUors la the So- 
cial Democratic Party agreed 
yesterday. 

The county councils are the 
largest and most powerful 
local authorities left ia En- 
gland and Wales after the 
abolition of the Greater Loo- 
don Grand] and the siXtoetro- 
politan county councils* 

The policy adopted by the 
Association of Social Demo- 
cratic Councillors at its confer- 
ence yesterday would continue 
toe abolition process by giving 
hundreds of shire district 
! councils many of . the powers 
now held by toe counties. 

But the policy would also 
add a new tier of local govern- 
ment in the form of elected 
regional assemblies, Mrs 
Sheila Terry, the chairman, 
said. 

Such assemblies would have 
the powers now held by region- 
al health authorities and the 
regional offices of the Minis- 
try of Transport and the 
Department of the Environ- 
ment 

She agreed that the dele- 
gates at the conference in 
Great Malvern, Hereford and 
Worcester, were effectively 
proposing to revive the defunct 
GIG and to give it some of the 
health authority powers that 
its former Labour leaders had 
sought in vain. 

The blueprint will now go 
for ratification to all members 
of the association. 


Alliance’s 
joint move 
on Polaris 

Continuedfrom page L 

SDP and Liberal candidates 
raying different things at the 
next election was profoundly 
misplaced. He said the SDP 
policy on defence expressed a 
willingness to replace Polaris 
if necessary, and added: “We 
can live with that so long as it , 
is not construed as an eager- 
ness to replace Polaris.” 

But in a little-noted passage, 
which appeared to be hinting 
at the compromise that may 
eventually be put forward, Mr 
Steel spoke of ignorant com- 
mentators who portrayed a 
Britain without Polaris as 
being virtually defenceless. 

He said they had forgotten 
there were already nuclear 
armed Tornado aircraft 
squadrons. He went oh: “If it 
were sadly found to be re- 1 
quirvd m the next decade, 
these could provide Europe 
with a minimum deterrent 
independent of American 
power. 

“ Tornado has been a most 
successful aircraft which could . 
if necessary be equipped with 
ground-hugging missiles, pos- 
sibly based on the oue current- 
ly being developed in France.” 

Mr Steel first signalled a 
shift in his thinking towards 
supporting a British contribu- 
tion to a European nuclear 
role in a speech in Catania, 
Sicily, in April His supporters 
clearly hope that its reiteration' 
so soon after the publication 
of the commission report will 
help towards an early accom- 
modation with Dr Owen. 


Crash start for microlight air race 


By Ronald Faux 


The Great MkroBght Air 
Race around England, held to 
prove that after their blighted 
early history the small planes 
are now safe and reliable, 
began on Saturday with a 
spectacular crash. 

As more than 3ft aircraft 
took off in quick succession 
from Barton airfield near 
Manchester, one plane with 
two on board failed to reach 
flying speed and cartwheeled 
into a tangled heap of tubing 
and doth on the runway. 

The pilot and passenger 
emerged from the wreckage 
like medieval knights from a 
jousting trait with hardly a 
scratch on them. 

V 


For the organizers, toe 
North-west Mfcrolight Asso- 
ciation, toe accident was an 
inaaspkioas start to tbe L 400 - 
mfle race. One other plane 
failed to take off at first 
attempt. 

1 flew tbe first leg of the race 
with Mr David Aspinall, a 
British Telecom engineer. The 
pilot, wearing his passenger 
rather like a large rucksack, 
sits in a large slipper suspend- 
ed beneath the wing. 

Control is by shifting toe 
weight of Che slipper beneath 
the wing, and power is from a 
two-stroke engine poshing die 
raicrolight along from behind. 

“It's the freedom of it that I 


Eke” Mr AspinaO said as

neath his Grot Thermals of

Tbe race competitors flew 
over tbe first mark, a light- 
house on the River Lone, 
photographed It twice to prove 
they had been there and 
headed for the next taming 
point on toe east coast. 

The race is a stem test of 
flying skills. The pilots refuel 
by Sanding m any field conve- 
niently dose to a garage. 

With the wind blowing 
briskly from the North we 
were bowling down fee East' 


Coast yesterday at speeds 
approaching 100 mph. Only 
one had dropped oat — a pilot 
whose aircraft was damaged in 
a motorway accident on his 
way to Barton. 

In tbe lead was Bob Calvert, 
of Preston, who is a European

microlight altitude record. He 
was expected to have reached

Power for magistrates’ Speedier 

. checks on 

courts to msist on m^w 

reparation proposed dangers 

* Br IT F Bv Out Science Editor 


A new power for 
magistrates' courts to order 
reparation in the same way as 
they can make compensation 
orders is suggested today by 
the Justices' Clerks’ Society. 

In its response to the Home 
Office discussion paper on 
reparation, the society says 
that present statutory powers 
are not sufficient to allow 
reparation ordered by the 
courts. to develop 
satisfactorily. 

The society, which repre-

power for sems the chief legal advisers to custodial sentence is imposed 


magistrates, says that a repara- 
tion order could be appropri- 
ate where a very short term of 
detention is being imposed, or 
as pan of other non-cuslodial 
orders. 

A reparation order should 
be quite specific and order a 
minimum number of hours to

Watchdogs may check 
on part-time j'udges 


The Lord Chancellor's De- 
partment is considering spot 
checks on part-time Judges to 
monitor their performance. 

The inspectors, who would 
probably be retired circuit 
Judges or possibly practising 
judges, would turn up unan- 
nounced to watch assistant 
recorders and recorders at 
work. They would report on 
suitability for promotion and 
advise on training needs. 

The plan is being put for- 
ward in the context of a 
possible expansion in the role 
of the Judicial Studies Board. 
The idea is to improve the 
quality of feedback on judges' 
work. 

Proposals for the scheme 
coincide with a recent sugges- 
tion by Lord Hails ham of St 
Marylebone, Lord Chancellor, 
for a new complaints board to 
advise him m cases of alleged 


misconduct which could justify 
dismissal. 

Lord Hails ham is clearly 
keen to be seen to be improv- 
ing the system. Some sections 
of the Bar have been pressing 
for reforms and Mr Peter 
Scott, QC, the Bar vice- 
chairman, said recently that 
he favoured consideration of a 
new appointments body to 
advise the Lord Chancellor on 
promotions. 

Attention has been focused 
on the system of appointments 
and dismissal recently by- 
Judge Pickles, a judge on the 
Northern Circuit, who has 
challenged the whole proce- 
dure and called for reform. 

Mr Manus Nnnan, a former 
crown court recorder. Is also 
planning to seek a judicial 
review concerning the way he 
was removed from office in 
1984. 


because it would not be satis- 
facioiy for the offender and 
the victim to have to wait a 
tong time for the reparation to 
take place. 

An order for reparation 
should not reduce the number 
of hours under a community 
service order made at the 
same time, but rather be seen 
as an extra power which would 
have some mitigating effect on 
the way the court deals with 
the offence. 

The society says it would 
not be appropriate for the 
probation service to adminis- 
ter such a reparation scheme. 
Probation officers are seen as 
helping offenders and many 
victims of crime would not 
want to be involved with 
officials closely linked with 
the perpetrators. 

• The society also calls today 
for the Lord Chancellor and 
Home Secretary to set up a 
committee to review the pro- 
cedure of magistrates' courts. 

For some years it has been 
concerned about the “piece- 
meal development'' of the law 
on procedure in magistrates' 
court and says it is now 
necessary and desirable to 
have a fundamental review. 

This would “enable the 
magistrates' courts to look 
ahead with confidence to the 
demands likely to be placed 
on them in future years'*. Not 
all procedure needs reform, 
the society says, but there is 
much scope for improvement 
in a system which largely 
derives from mid-nineteemh 
century legislation.

dangers 

By Our Science Editor 

A more rapid system of 
recognizing the harmful side 
effects of medicines is being 
proposed by a research team at 
Sheffield University medical 
school and The Royal 
Hal lams hire Hospital in Shef- 
field. 

Furthermore, the scheme 
the team suggests provides for 
immediate expert advice to be 
available to doctors faced with 
an acute reaction by an indi- 
vidual to a drug. 

The new approach is sug- 
gested by Dr John Watkins, 
who is the co-ordinalor of an 
experimental project called 
the National Anaesthetic Ad- 
verse Reaction Advisory 
Service. 

It began in Sheffield two 
years ago. Dr Walk jus be- 
lieves the experience gained 
from the service could now be 
extended to cover the comput- 
erized reporting of adverse 
reactions for all types of drugs. 

He said: “It is chastening to 
realize that commonplace 
drugs like aspirin and penicil- 
lin, if developed now, would 
probably fail the safety tests 
necessary to become 
prescribable drugs." 

The procedure by which 
adverse reactions are reported 
on the simple “yellow card” by 
hospital doctors and general 
practitioners is no longer ade- 
quate, he added. 

The development of the 
limited service from Sheffield 
began because of the special 
difficulties with anaesthetics. 

About 300 people die each 
year directly through 
anaesthesic practices and a 
further 1,800 deaths occur in 
which anaesthesia played 
some part. Moreover, the pa- 
tients are not necessarily the 
old and infirm. 

• Dentists are this week 
being advised by the British 
Dental Assocation to undergo 
vaccination to prevent infec- 
tion with hepatitis B. The 
disease can lead to cirrhosis or 
liver cancer, and most carriers

their condition.

Burden of 
jobless 
for health 




By Nicholas Timmins 
Social Services 
Correspondent 

Health visitors and social 
workers are increasingly hav- 
ing to give financial and 
welfare rights advice to the 
unemployed, sometimes at 
the expense of other aspects of 
their work, according to a 
study published yesterday. 

They are also more often 
having to refer people to 
charities for financial help, 
second-hand clothing or 
grants for essential items such 
as cooking equipment. Health 
visitors are also handing out 
free baby food samples when 
social security giros or milk 
tokens fail to arrive. 

The study, financed by the 
Health Education Council, in- 
terviewed 127 health visitors, 
social workers and health 
education officers in London. 
Scotland and the Midlands in 
areas with average, or above 
average, unemployment- 

Health visitors in particular 
feci they are being asked to 
shoulder an extra burden, the 
study says. They are quoted as 
saying; “We need more infor- 
mation about welfare rights. 
We send people along to the 
DHSS and then are told they 
have no time to advise and 
aren't very helpful. You feel so 
stupid." 

One health visitor said: 
"People call me about electric- 
ity bills, gas bills, the late 
arrival of milk tokens. 1 get 
phone calls from Lhe hospital 
because mothers don't have 
the money to visit their 
children." 

Social workers, like health 
visitors, also appear to be 
making increasing use of char- 
ities. the report says. One said 
they were often in a position 
of having to give people letters 
i to go to a voluntary organiza- 
tion for second-hand clothing, 
“which is both degrading for 
us and for them”.

Mail order 
hy disc ‘in 
10 years’ 

By Bill Johnstone 
Technology Correspondent 

Mail order information 
contained on computer discs 
instead of catalogues, and 
electronic photographic tech- 
niques replacing conventional 
film will be commonplace 
w ithin 10 years, a study of the 
world consumer electronics 
market predicts. 

"The consumer media sec- 
tor. which has shown explo- 
sive growth since the advent 
of home video, is now poised 
for more dramatic expansion 
over the next decade through- 
out Europe, Japan and the US. 
This market currently worth 
S 12.000 million will double in 
value by 1995 stimulated ini- 
tially by demand for compact 
discs and 8mm video tape," 
the consultants say. 

Compact disc alone is ex- 
pected to generate nearly 
SI 0.000 million by 1995, the 
stud}' says. A compact disc is 
the size of a beer mat contain- 
ing about one hour of high- 
qualiiy sound. A new type will 
contain information instead 
of music and could replace 
mail order catalogues and 
other directories. 

Conventional photography, 
according to the study, is 
under threat. Still electronic 
photographs, where the image 
is also contained on a comput- 
er disc, will totally change the 
markeL it claims. The photo- 
graphs on the disc will be able 
to be displayed, via the appro- 
priate electronic “black box", 
on a television set. 

The study was conducted by 
the Luton-iased consultants.

‘Freezing’ 
the price 
of prawns 

By Hugh Clayton 

Some frozen prawns are 
being “double-glazed" with an 
extrarthick layer of ice, council 
analysts in Lancashire said 
yesterday. 

Exporters in countries like 
Norway, who coated their 
prawns .with thin ice, some- 
times faced demands from 
British shop groups for an 
extra layer to keep the price i 
down, they said. Some prawns 
had been sold with more than a 
third of their weight in water, 
even though it was technically 
possible to keep the level down 
to 10 per cent. 

There is nothing in food law 
to say how little ice there 
should be on frozen prawns. 
For six months the Food 
Advisory Committee has been 
investigating the amount of 
fish in iced, battered and 
bread-crumbed products. 

A spokesman for Youngs 
Seafoods, which claims to be 
I the largest supplier of frozen 
prawns in Britain, said that it 
kept all its prawns down to a 
level of 10 to IS per cent ice. It 
called for laws to make other 
suppliers keep their ice levels 
down. 

The analysts tested 38 
brands of packed frozen 
prawns by dipping them in 
warm water and weighing the 
thawed fish. 

Four brands had less than 
10 per cent water by weight 
while four had more than 40 
per cent Thirty brands had 
between 20 and 40 per cent 
water, the analysts said in the 
journal of the Institution of 
Environmental Health Offi- 


Preparing 
to deliver 
the goods 

By John Young 
Agriculture Correspondent 

The supermarkets, after one 
shopping revolution, are now 
preparing for another which in 
some ways will bring the 
wheel full circle. 

Within the next few years 
the well-to-do middle classes 
will be able to go back to 
ordering their groceries to be 
delivered to their homes, rath- 
er than be seen to be doing 
anything so vulgar as 
shopping. 

But it will not be quite the 
same as in (he old days when 
cook telephoned her require- 
ments to the local butcher, 
baker, fishmonger or general, 
store, and delivery boys came 
to the back door on bicycles; 
when bills were submitted 
deferentially and at discreet 
intervals and paid, at the 
customer’s convenience, by 
cheque of course, without 
such a thing as a bankers' card. 

Instead, orders will be 
placed by closed-circuit televi- 
sion and paid for by automatic 
credit transfer. Customers will 
then collect the goods from the 
back door of the shop, or have 
them delivered to their 
homes. 

Mr Ian MacLaureru chair- 
man of Tesco. forecasts that 
more than a fifth of affluent 
consumers will regularly use 
“tele-shopping” by the end of 
the century, with implications 
both for the design and size of 
stores, and for employment in 
the retail trade. 


Guide to the Scots tongue 


When a good boss is a bummer 


By Ronald Faux 

“Hoots moc” is not accept- 
able Scots. The expression 
may sound occasionally from 
the English mask hall stage, 
but it has no place in the Scots 
language according to Iseabail 
Macleod, compiler of a new 
guide. 

The syntax my be English, 
but many words — from baw- 
bee and spomut, which may be 
widely understood, to wbigma- 
leerie, kenspeckle and 
deochandoroos — have a Scot- 
tish quality that sets the 
language apart. 

Some words may lead the 
uninitiated into some wildly 
inaccurate guesswork. The pit- 
falls which the guide may help 
Commonwealth athletes, visit- 
ing businessmen and tourists 


to avoid, are many and 
intricate. 

A bridle, for example. Is not 
a bride of short stature, but a 
kind of meat turnover. Mes- 
sages have nothing to do with 
information but are any arti- 
cles bought in a shop. A heid 
bummer is a perfectly respect- 
able way of referring to your 
boss although a heid banger 
describes a stupid, crazy 
person. 

Gloaxmn, as Sir Harry Lau- 
der fans will recall is the 
evening twilight, whilst to 
greet is not to say hello bot (0 
burst into tears. Some Scots 
words are spendidly self-de- 
scriptive, such as danuamfry 
for a crowd or rabble, crabbit 
for bad tempered, dreich for 
dull, dreary or boring, fou 
meaning drunk and girn which 


is to moan, complain or 
grumble. 

A monro bagger is one who 
attempts to climb every moon- 
tain in Scotland higher than 
3,000 ft ~ which effort may 
leave him feeling peelie-wally 
or pale and ill-looking. 

A man who has lost bis 
wallies will not be searching 
for his gomboots but will have 
mislaid bis false teeth. One 
can skelp a wean wi' a spnrde 
or smack a child with a 
porridge spoon, and, afore ye 
go, you could weet yonr 
thrapple wi* a deoch su- 
dorous — or have one for the 
road.

Child sex abase: 1 






over growmg 


use of video tapes 


- A . new . controversy has 
erupted among lawyers and 
psychiatrists about the use of 
video Tapes in coujls iu cases 
of child sexual abuse. . 

. The tapes depict a pioneer- 
ing technique for persuading 
children to admit to sexual 
abuse. This has caused open 
hostility and criticism in some 
quarters of both professio ns 

The technique is breaking 
new ground both in the con- 
sulting rooms and the courts 
and prompting a radical re- 
view of how evidence of. 
sexual abuse is obtained and 
used.

Sale room 


Table sells 
for record 


£73,000 


By Geraldine Norman 
Sale Room Correspondent 


A dining room table- by 
Giacometti and a side chair by 
Frank Lloyd : Wright both 
topped previous auction price 
records at Christie’s in New 
York over, the weekend,- dem- 
onstrating that furniture de- 
signed by twentieth century 
sculptors or architects is very

Giacometti's table, which 
sold- for $110,000 (estimate 
580.000-590,000) <*£73,333, 
has a round, transparent glass 
top supported on 'bronze-legs. 
Where the four legs meet the 
table top four bronze frogs 
crouch on top of the glass. 

With Frank TJoyd Wright, 
on the other hand, what really 
matters is that his furniture 
should come from houses or 
rooms which he designed in 
their entirety. 

There were two oak side 
chairs which be designed for 
the Roy Evans house m 
Chicago about 1908. They are 
plain, with square leather 
seats; the curiosity of “the 
design is that the six straight 
spindles in the chair backs do 
not stop at the seat but 
continue on to a stretcher 
connecting the back less just

the second $3(1800 (estimates

The discrepancy in price 
probably reflects no more than 
the impossibility of securing 
the pair once the first had been

One of the most shutting 
recent theories of astronomy, a 
hypothesis known as the grav- 
ita tioaal lens, has been shat- 
tered, just when it was gaining 
acceptance. ■ . - 

The discovery came from 
observations of quasars, which 
are among the most baffling 
and controversial objects in 
the. sky.. Discovered 25 years 
o, quasars — quasi-stellar 
jects — are relatively com- 
pacl sources of light, appar- 
ently the dimension of a star, 
bat emitting more energy than 
a hundred sopergjant galaxies. 
■■ The gra vitation a l leas the- 
ory was spawned last year 
when two id en tical quasars 
were reported very dose to 
each other. Professor E L 
Turner and colleagues at 
Princeton University in the 
United States produced calcu- 
lations in a paper in Nature 
last month suggesting that die 
“twin” quasars were the same 
object Two images were pro- 
dneed by the gravitational 
effect of some intervening 
object, possibly a black hide, 
lying between the Earth and 
the distant quasar. 

However, observations re- 
ported in Nature this month, 
by Dr P A Shaver and Dr S 
Christum, of the European 
Southern Observatory, show 
that there are two objects. 

Astronomers, had 
that the storage pattern of 
quasars' light was attributed 
to the effect iof Doppler shift. 
This happens because the 
light, and hence colour, seen 
by an observer varies when an 
object is "moving rapkfiy to- 
ward or away from the person, 
or when there is no relative 
movement between them. 

If the analysis of the light 
shows a high proportion of 
red, ft means die observer is 
seeing more long wa 
which is referred to as a red- 
shift. 

Using the telescope oa the 
□ram tarn-top she at La Silla, 
in Chile, the two astronomers 
have analysed the spectra of 
tight from the two quasars and 
found “strfldng differences'” in 
the red part. Their data shows 
that hydrogen is a prominent 
part of one source of red light, 
and is missing m the other.

As one QC put re “At first 
sight to a lawyer these tech- 
niques are startling in the 
extreme. 7 ’ 

They are also prompting 
challenges from other psychkt- 
trists. The video tape means 
that for tbe first time the .very 
processes, and not just the 
conclusion, by -which tbe psy- 
chiatrist reaches his decision 
is open to public scrutiny and 
dissection.

vour fe Dr Eileen Vizard, who

tive being there. Many chil- 
dren have been coerced into 
silence by threats and we have 
to find a way to help them." 

By use of the dolls, the 
children may manage to ex- 
plain or demonstrate to tbe 
psychiatrist what has hap- 
pened to them. 

Dr Vizard estimates partial 
disclosure at least fe obtained 
in 75 per cent of cases. But for 
some children, threats from 
the molesters, nearly always a 
relative, or .step-relative, 
prove too powerful and retrac- 
tions start as soon as the child 
is back in the room with the 
rest of the family who are to be 
confronted with the 
disclosure. 

Dr Vizard emphasizes that 
the doHs are only aids; it is the 
interpretation that counts. 

But tbe problem is that such 
investigations cannot end 
there. Inevitably they lead to 
legal proceedings and the vid- 
eo tapes, tire record of what 
has .happened in the room, 
then assume a new signifi- 
cance far- removed from what 
was originally intended.

Sausage image for Scottish Academy 


By Ronald Faux 
Edinburgh's taste for the 
artistically unusual may be 
about to enter a vertical 
period with a plan to adorn 
the Royal Scottish Academy 
in Princes Street, William 
Playfair’s elegant Athenaeum- 
style building, with 50 giant 
cylinders tethered to the roof 
and held aloft by pressurized 
air. 

They would mark an exhibi- 
tion to be held in tbe academy 


celebrating the enterprising 
onsible 


Scot The artist responsible for 
the idea, Vera Simons, be- 
lieves that the fluted cylinders 
would mirror the columns of 
the building below and create 
an attractive image. 

Dr Sheila Brock, bead of 
public relations for the Royal 
Museums of Scotland, said 
that the cylinders, which she 
preferred not to think of as 
sausage-shaped balloons, 
would be eye-catching 


They were not, she insisted, 
a silly joke. The General 
Electric Company had agreed 
to sponsor them and several 
other individuals had agreed 
to give time and advice. 

Tbe final decision on the 
project will be made this week 
but it has drawn outraged 
reaction from the COckbum 
Association, the watchdog on 
matters of civic good taste 
Mr Oliver Barra tt, secre- 
tary, called it a great shame 


that the Royal Museums of 
Scotland of all people should 
try to turn one of Edinburgh's 
most distinguished buildings 
into a “butcher's shop". 

He could not comment on 
the artistic merit of the 
“sausage" balloons because he 
had not seen them, but it did 
strike him as being another 
vulgarization of Princes 
Street. He believed the muse- 
ums should advertise their 
exhibitions in a proper way.

Membership fees are to risk£ 
by 25 per cent at English’' 
Heritage, the quango which" 
wants to make some of the 
finest historic properties in the 
country more lively and 
accessible. 


The new fees of £10 a year 
for au adult member or£20 for 
a family, which affect slightly 
more than 50.000 members, 
give free admission to more 
than 250 ruins and castled 
ranging from Stonehenge and 
parts of Hadrian's Wall to 
Battle Abbey, site of the Battle 
of Hastings. 

Advertising has begun also 
for a head of trading, at a 
salary of between £1 5,000 and 
£18,000 a year, with experi- 
ence “preferably within the 
retailing, purchasing and mail 
order sectors". 


Mr Alan Hill, director of 
administrative services, said 
that one of the new official's 
tasks would be “to sell more 
and better souvenirs at 
monuments". English Heri-

Parliament is about to enact a law giving millions 
of pounds more to record companies and the rest of 
the prosperous music industry. Everyone in Britain 
will be invited to donate. 

All that you have to do is buy a blank audio tape. 
As much as 20% of the price you pay may be passed 
on to the princes of pop and the voracious VAT man. 

Why? 

Simply because the music industry wants even 
more money. So they made a great deal of fuss about 
home taping. 

The Government responded to their ‘plight’ by 
ignoring not only natural justice, but also EEC law, 
and proposed a levy on every blank tape sold. 


The vast majority of home taping is done, reason- 
ably enough, for personal convenience, protection 
and portability. 

So any Tape Levy represents a judicial fine on 
everyone who buys a blank tape. And the beneficiaries 
of this legal perversion are the privileged few at the 
top of the music industry. 

It’s not too late to undo this wilful miscarriage 
of justice. 

To find out how you can help stop the Tape Levy 
becoming law, contact : The Tape Manufacturers Group, 
17-19 Foley Street, London W1P 7LH. 

It’s your only chance of remaining innocent rmrit

violent 
solution 

From Jan Raatfa 
Harare 

The only solution now left to 
bring about an end to apart- 
heid in Sooth Africa was a 
violent one, Mr Robert 
Mugabe, the Prime Minister 
of Zimbabwe, said yesterday. 

Mr Mugabe was family 
cheered by a crowd of about 
40,000 gathered in the Rnfaro 
football stadium to commemo- 
rate die 1976 Soweto riots, 
when he said: **1116 only 
language the Boer will under- 
stand is the language of the 
gun . . . the more of them yon 
kOL, the nearer yoa get to your 
goal.” 

He said the Commonwealth 
Eminent Persons’ Group had 
now proved that the Govern- 
ment of South Africa was “not 
prepared to change course 
towards the creation of dem- 
ocracy". 

He said Zimbabwe was 
prepared to suffer whatever 
effects followed from the impo- 
sition of sanctions against 
South Africa. 

“If we are given a choice to 
bear whatever saffering will 
come from sanctions and the 
choice to continue as we are 
indefinitely, we say we prefer 
sanctions, because it will make 
our suffering shorter." 

In July when the Organiza- 
tion of African Unity held its 
summit, he would appeal for 
the establishment of a defence 
force “to form a solid front 
with die fighting masses in 
Sooth Africa", and also to arm 
opponents of apartheid. 

It was now time for Africans 
to “prepare ourselves to sup- 
port the struggle in a much 
more vigorous way than 
before". 

• LUSAKA: President Kann- 
da has pot the Zambian army 
on alert to counter what he 
said was a South African plan 
to launch a massive attack on 
his country' (Reuter reports). 

He said nine Sooth Africans 
were being held after a raid 
last month on an alleged 
guerrilla base near Lusaka.

tswana citizen was' killed and 
two were wounded by unknown 
gunmen in an attack on a

ported. 

The agency said the attack 
was suspected to be the work 
of neighbouring South Africa, 
which had carried out two 
raids near Gaborone in the 
past year killing 13 people.

Gadaffi 
on attacks 

Ftom Peter Nichols 
: Rome 

The shape of Italian policy 
in the Mediterranean emerg- 
ing at the weekend was a 
greater firmness towards Lib- 
ya and an unspoken hope of 
greater Soviet interest in the 
area asa calming influence. 

Speaking on Saturday, at 
Ragusa, Signor Bettino Craxi, 
the Prune Minister, took the 
opportunity of the forthcom- 
ing Sicilian elections to warn- 
Cokmel Gadaffi of Libya that 
no further attacks would be 
permitted similar to the two 
missiles launched against the 
Sicilian island of Lampedusa. 

“We did well to keep calm 
but we also warned (Colonel 
Gadaffi); . we will not accept 
.other acts of war; we shall 
reply with military means to 
defend the smallest outpost of 
our territory, I hope he has 
understood." • ■ 

Signor Craxi was equally 
firm m attacking international 
terrorism. “The method of 
terrorism sows only hate. It 
settles no problems. It offers 
no sort of solution and so has 
no justification." _ 

He made no reference dur- 
ing his Sicilian journey to the 
contact be has had with the 
Soviet Union on the Med- 
itenanaen crisis. 

Mr Mikhail Gorbachov, the 
Soviet leader, is.due to visit 
Italy and the Vatican in foe 
autumn but apparently the 
Russians would now uke a 
“consultation”, with foe Ital- 
ians before that on the Medi- 
terranean situation.

Thatcher letter to Gorbachov 


Hopes rise for Shevardnadze visit 


Thousands protest at 
French nuclear plant 


From Christopher Walker 
Moscow 

Mrs Margaret Thatcher has 
sent a personal letter to Mr 
Mikhail Gorbachov respond- 
ing to suggestions from the’ 
Soviet leader about methods 
of improving international 
nuclear safety in toe*wake of 
the Chernobyl disaster. 

British sources here said the 
letter — the latest in a series of 
personal communications be- 
tween the two leaders — was 
delivered on Friday, when Sir 
Bryan Gtrtiedge, the. British 
Ambassador in Moscow, held 
talks with foe Soviet Foreign 
Minister, Mr Eduard 
Shevardnadze. 

The sources refused to re- 
veal the content of foe letter. A 
brief Tass announcement on 
foe ambassador’s talks gave 
no indication as to whether 
they had included final confir- 
mation of a date for Mr 
Shevardnadze’s postponed 
trip to London. 

“During the conversation," 
Tass stated, “both sides dis- 
cussed certain international 
problems of mutual interest 
and practical steps wfth foe 


aim of developing Soviet- 
British relations." 

After the personal interven- 
tion of Mr Leonid Zamyatin, 
foe Soviet Ambassador to 
London, British officials hope 
the visit will take place next 
month. They point out that 
the main reason for the delay 
has been foe shake-up inside 
foe Soviet Foreign Ministry 
rather than any reluctance by 
foe minister to travel to 
Britain. 

The recent marked im- 
provement in Anglo-Soviet 
relations was emphasized on 
Saturday night, when Sir Bry- 
an appeared on foe main 
Soviet television news to de- 
liver a message in Russian 
designed to mark the celebra- 
tion of the Queen’s official 
birthday. 

Sir Bryan explained to an 
estimated 100 million Soviet 
viewers that the West was 
well4nientioned towards the 
Soviet people. He cited British 
offers of help after the 
Chernobyl tragedy as an ex- 
ample of this goodwill. 

The ambassador, who has 
served here twice before, said 
he was struck by the economic 


changes, particularity in na- 
tional economic management, 
. when he returned to Moscow 
last year after a gap of II 
years. 

“We in Britain welcome 
these changes," be said. 
“However, when I read your 
newspapers and watch televi- 
sion broadcasts, it sometimes 
seems to me that the world 
beyond your borders, and 
especially the Western world, 
appears hostile or at least, ill- 
disposed towards your 
country." 

He added that Mr Peter 
Walker, foe Energy Secretary, 
had signed a for-reaching ener- 
gy co-operation agreement in 
Moscow a few days before 
“the tragic incident at 
chernobyl," which, he said, 
had illustrated the importance 
of co-operation and a full 
exchange of information in 
the nuclear era. 

Britain, the ambassador 
concluded, was glad it had 
been able to offer practical 
help to overcome foe conse- 
quences of foe accident. 

Addresses by ambassadors 
on Soviet television are a 
relatively new innovation. 


Cattenom. France (Reuter) 
— More than 1 0.000 protesters 
from West Germany. Luxem- 
bourg, Belgium and France 
demonstrated here yesterday 
against a new French nuclear 
power plant which is destined 
to be the largest in the world. 

A thousand riot police and 
gendarmes faced them, setting 
up road blocks in a three-mile 
radius of the plant and making 
spot checks on cam in the area. 

Police also blocked several 
border crossings between Lux- 
embourg and France with 
barbed wire. Traffic jams sev- 
eral miles long built up at 
remaining frontier posts. 

Police said no disturbances 
had been reported at foe rally 
and there were no arrests. 

. Cattenom is five miles 
south of the Luxembourg 
border and eight miles west of 
foe West German frontier. 

The demonstration was the 
first against the nuclear plant, 
built at a cost of around 30 
billion francs (£2.7 billion). 
Planned protests in 1979 and 
1981 were banned by foe 
authorities. 

The first tif Cattenom’s four 
1,3 00- MW reactors is due to 


come on stream in autumn. 
Critics say limits on radioac- 
tive emissions and waste wa- 
ter from foe plant are too lax, 
and some have called for foe 
plant to be scrapped. 

• WACKERSDORF: Bricks, 
stones and bottles were 
thrown at police by demon- 
strators as some 1 .000 protest- 
ers gathered at the planned 
site of West Germany's first 
atomic waste processing plant 
(AP repons). 

Riot police fired tear gas 
canisters to drive protesters 
away from foe fence around 
foe Bavarian construction 
site, authorities said. 

Police said they arrested one 
protester, who was carrying a 
bottle filled with petrol that he 
apparently planned to use as a 
bomb. No injuries were re- 
ported in the clash. 

The protest was foe latest in 
a series of recent anti-nuclear 
demonstrations across West 
Germany. 

On Saturday, 5,000 demon- 
strators protested before the 
Hesse state parliament build- 
ing in Wiesbaden, urging au- 
thorities to dose all West 
German nuclear power plants.

But Egyptian officials are

reduced drastically to cut the

£2.000 million 
Egypt, however, is a past 
master at avoiding these sorts 
of decisions, not least because 
foe Americans — always ready 
to give warning of an end to

In Al Ahram. Mayo and Al 
Akhbar y Mr Lutfy has been 
quoted as saying that ft is 
impossible to reduce Govern- 
ment subsidies at one stroke 
and that “changing...from 
commodity subsidies to cash 
subsidies will be phased over 
four years". He would like to 
delay the implementation of 
such reductions until October 
1.

are bora every nine months 
and where only 30 per cent of 
married women are practising 
birth control suggest that the

hisown National Democratic 
party. 

The question of subsidies 
remained “unsettled” but it 
cannot remain unsettled for 
much longer ■ nor can Mr 
Mubarak deny that most 
Egyptians are indeed poor — 
the average annual wage here 
is only £400 a year. 

The memory of the 1977 
food riots — when almost 80 
people were killed in two days 


ous £980 million — are as 
anxious as President Mubarak 
to avoid a recurrence of the 
Widespread civil disorders 
that occurred in 1977. 

Mr Aly Lutfy, the Egyptian 
Prime Minister, has been 
floating a number of trial 
balloons in the Cairo press to 
foe effect that subsidies could 
be reduced gradually and that 
some subsidies could be reim- 
bursed to the very poor in the 



Government is still in no 
position to implement the son 
of measures that could allevi- 
ate foe country's problems. 

There have been small re- 
ductions in subsidies for pet- 
rol. water, cooking oil. 
electricity and cigarettes but 
they have been made so slowly 
Lhat the public assumed they 
were part of a general but slow 
rise in the cost of living. The 
Government still underwrites 
train and bus fares as well as 
Egypt's two main television 
channels. 

Neither the IMF nor the 
World Bank bas given a public 
ultimatum on the reduction of 
subsidies but Egyptian offi- 
cials say that their creditors 
are still demanding cuts of 75 
per cent in foodstuffs and 
other essentials if the econo- 
my is still to be propped up 
with international assistance. 

The problem is that Egypt is 
in no stale to help itself at a 
time when the drop in oil 
prices has forced the nation to 
cut the price of oil on an 
average of once a month this 
year and when fewer tankers

Attack on Israeli Bible 


study college raises 
spectre of civil strife 


A Bible study college was 
vandalized, :he main syna- 
gogue of Tel-Aviv was daubed 
with swastikas and a car 
carrying Ultra-Orthodox reli- 
gious leaders was stoned over 
the weekend as extremis: secu- 
lar Jews stepped-up a violent 
campaign to counter vandal- 
ism by the religious 
community. 

Yesterday's Cabinet meet- 
ing discussed these latest at- 
tacks with ministers clearly 
shocked by the prospect of a 
civil war between the secular 
and religious communities. 

Mr Shimon Peres, the 
Prime Minister, told the Cabi- 
net that there was now a need 
for a supreme effort to over- 
come the differences between 
the two sides through a 
dialogue. 

He branded those who were 
responsible for damaging the 
religious college premises as 


From las Murray, Jerusalem 

extremists, adding that they 
were in the same category as 
the Ultra-Orthodox Jews who 
have been setting fire to bus 
shelters in a campaign against 
what they claim are “lewd" 
advertising posters of girls in 
swimsuits. 

The Prime Ministers said 
that these actions carried out 
by people “on the fringes of 
the groups" would be pun- 
ished to make sure that the 
guilty were brought to justice. 

The attack on the Yesftiva 
(Bible study college) in Tel- 
Aviv on Saturday — the 
Sabbath — was the most 
violent so far by secular 
extremists. Hundreds of pray- 
er books were ripped apart, 
the Ark of the Tora was 
damaged and tefilin (small 
leather boxes containing scrip- 
tures) were torn. 

The students were away in 
Jerusalem at the time and 


.neighbours who discovered 
what had happened did not 
call the police at once, because 
to do so would have broken 
the Sabbath. 

The swastikas daubed on 
the walls inside the synagogue 
were discovered on Friday 
afternoon and it was just 
possible to have them re- 
moved before the start of the 
Sabbath. 


These desecrations are re- 
garded as extremely serious, 
but on die religious side they 
are seen as less worrying than 
the steady- erosion of values 
which allowed the “lewd" 
posters to be put up without 
question, thus provoking the 
observant community to a 
campaign of vandalism. 










New bank chief named 


Mr Zevulun Hammer, a 
National Religious Party MP, 
insisted that “the secular com- 
munity must understand that 
not everybody can live with 
the sight ofnude posters in bus 
shelters". 


The Israeli Cabinet has at 
last agreed on a successor as 
governor of the Bank of Israel, 
to take over from Dr Moshe 
Mandelbamn, who was re- 
quired to resign after- being 
found partly to blame for illicit 
share dealings (Our Jerusa- 
lem Correspondent writes). 

He is Mr Michael Bruno. 


aged 54, a professor at the 
Hebrew University. A sup- 
porter of the Labour Party, be 
was nevertheless accepted by 
the Likud members of die 
coalition. 

He was an architect of 
Israel's recent tax reforms and 
of its economic austerity 
programme. 


But the Ashkenazi Chief 
Rabbi, Mr Avraham Shapira, 
complained: “The main prob- 
lem is the collapse of the status 
quo." This was a reference to 
the written understanding 
whereby nothing can be 
changed which upsets the 
traditional rights of the reli- 
gious community.

Spanish Socialists run 
scared as polls 
predict loss of majority 


Spain's Socialists are run- 
ning scared after opinion polls 
yesterday indicated that it was 
doubtful they can repeat their 
1 982 performance in Sunday's 
election and obtain an abso- 
lute majority for another four 
years. 

Opinion polls took some- 
thing of a beating in the March 
referendum on Nato, but with 
only five days of campaigning 
to go, Senor Felipe Gonzalez, 
the Prime Minister, raised his 
tone sharply when he ad- 
dressed rallies in five different 
parts of the country over the 
weekend. 

At the stan of the three- 
week campaign, he merely 
urged voters to go to the polls, 
reflecting the Socialists' wor- 
ries about abstentions. 

However, in a weekend 
address in Vitoria, in the 
Basque region, he concentrat- 
ed all his fire on the prospects 
of the right returning to power, 
and Spain losing an historic 
opportunity for progress if the 
Socialists did not win outright 
again. 

“I ask you on Sunday for a 
majority to make it dear that 
we want to continue on the 
road of progress and not go 
into reverse gear.” 

Even more explidtly, Senor 
Alfonso Guerra, the Deputy 
Prime Minister and Sotialist 


From Richard Wigg, Madrid 

campaign manager, said at a 
meeting near Seville that the 
entire Socialist project “for the 
poor” was at stake on Sunday. 

The Socialists, having got 
used to governing virtually 
unchallenged, with' 202 seats 
in the outgoing 350-seat Par- 
liament, do not take kindly to 
suggestions that they might 
give the country better and 
more responsive government 
with a reduced majority.' 

They accused the right-wing 
and centre opposition parties 
of only campaigning in a 
negative way to deprive them 
of a comfortable majority. 

Yesterday's jolt for the So- 
cialists came principally from 
a poll in El Pais, the indepen- 
dent Madrid daily, which 
showed the party had lost 
support since the campaign 
began, and was only likely to 
get 41 per cent of the vote, 
against 47 per cent four years 
ago. Abstentions, at around 30 
per cent, would be 10 per cent 
higher than in 1982. The poll 
said the Socialists would get 
167 to 194 seats. 

A second poll, in the Ya 
Roman Catholic daily, gave 
the Sodalists only 158 seats. 
But a poll ip Diario 16 
suggested they could get be- 
tween 193 and 202. 

What ail three polls agreed 
on, however, was that there 


Nicaragua food crisis 

Shelves bare as 
shortages mount 

From Alan Tomlinson, Managua 


Nicaragua is- suffering its 
worst food shortages in the 
seven years since the Sandi- 
nistas took power, pledging to 
reorganize economic life on 
Marxist principles for the 
benefit of the poor. 

-Even the staples of the 
national diet - rice, beans and 
the maize from which tortillas 
are made — are in chronically 
short supply. Meat batter, 
eggs and cooking oil have 
almost disappeared from the 
capital's shops and markets. 

While periodic scarcities of 
one prodnet or another have 
been a part of post-revolution- 
ary life for some time, shop- 
pers and. officials agree that 
things have never been as bad 
as they are now. 

Falling* production of basic 
foodstuffs has forced the Gov- 
ernment gradually to abandon 
many of its price aid distribu- 
tion controls, leaving house- 

Shultz fears defeat 

Washington - The US Secre- 
tary of State, Mr George 
Shultz, says Nicaraguan rebel 
forces need US assistance 
quickly to head off an “out- 
right permanent victory" by 
the Sandinistas Government 
(AP reports). “We cannot 
afford to wait." he said. 

wives at the mercy of 300 per 
cent inflation and a lively 
black market 

The main cause of the 
deteriorating economic situa- 
tion remains the five-year-old 
guerrilla war against the US- 
backed Contras, who have 
made state farms and peasant 
co-operatives the prime tar- 
gets of their attacks. 

Forty workers died in raids 
on co-operative farms daring 
one week last month and the 
war has also taken much 
manpower out of the fields into 
the army. 

Falling exports have led to a 
dire shortage of foreign ex- 
change to buy agricultural and 
food processing machinery 
and farming inputs such as 
fertilizer and pesticides. The 
US trade boycott has exacer- 
bated the problem. 

However, an increasing 
number of supporters, as well 
as critics of the revolution's 
economic strategies, share the 
vien that price controls which 
protected the consumer at the 
expense of the fanner have 
made a bad situation worse. 

The Government's hardest 
critics in the private business 
sector also argue that the 
manner In which agrarian 
reform has attempted to im- 


pose collective farming prac- 
tices on a reluctant peasantry 
has sapped the incentive to 
produce. The Government ad- 
mits that the working day has 
fallen quite widely to as little 
as three or four horns. 

* To boost productivity of 
basic grains, the Government 
has removed maize and beans 
from its shrinking list of 
controlled goods in what one 
economist described as “a 
significant shift back to a free 
market economy for the 
peasant**. 

These staples are grown 
almost exclusively in the 
northern highlands where the 
war has been fiercest. - : 

Transport has so frequently 
been the target of Contra 
ambushes that last year's 
■crops, already halved by a 
severe drought, hod to be 
brought down from the moun- 
tains in army convoys. 

Much of the diminished 
harvest found its way on to the 
black market because peas- 
ants preferred to risk heavy 
penalties to get a better price 
for then 1 crops. 

Rice, the other staple in 
severe scarcity, is produced 
almost entirely mi huge state 
and private farms. Here, said a 
farming analyst, the problem 
has been lade- of parts for 
processing machinery pur- 
chased in the US -before the 
boycott. 

He attributed the shortage 
of meat to the smuggling of 
beef across the borders by 
ranchers seeking hard curren- 
cy in Honduras and Costa 
Rica and estimated that 40 per 
'cent of Nicaraguan cattle were 
sold illegally, while most of the 
remaining meat was chan- 
nelled by the Government to 
work canteens as a means of 
discouraging absenteeism. 

The scarcity of cooking oil 
was attributed to lack of 
foreign exchange to buy insec- 
ticides which had exposed last 
year's cotton crop to plague. 

■ A British economist work- 
ing in Managua predicted that 
food shortages in the capita] 
and other cities would get 
worse. 

“Now that things are really 
short, the Government has 
been faced with the choice of 
who will get the scarce 
resources," be said. 

It had been decided that 
supplies would go first to the 
rural -poor to discourage mi- 
gration from the land to the 
cities and to reward the sector 
the Sandinistas regard as their 
political power base. 


British team 
in China talks 
on Hong Kong 

From David Bonavia 

Hong Kong 

A team of British experts 
left for Peking yesterday to 
hold further talks with Chi- 
nese officials on matters of 
shipping, aviation and nation- 
ality to be settled in advance 
of 1 997, the date of reversion 
of Hong Kong's sovereignty to 
China. 

The three-man team is led 
by the colony's deputy secre- 
tary for economic services. Mr 
Jerry Higginson. 

He told reporters that it was 
imposed to separate the Hong 
Long shipping register from 
that of Britain's, in which it is 
at present incorporated 

The matter would be regu-

Secret service 
accused on 
Bologna blast 

From Peter Nichols 
Rome 

Unjudicial inquiry into the 
bomb explosion at Bologna 
railway station in August 1980 
which cost 85 lives and 150 
injured places the blame firm- 
ly on terrorists of the extreme 
right under the control of a 
group within the secret 
service. 

The inquiry's lengthy report 
urges the trial of 19 people, 
including Signor Lido Gelli, a 
fugitive abroad who was once 
head of the now dissolved and 
illegal Masonic Lodge known 
as the "Propaganda Two”. 

Signor Gelli is referred to in 
the report as the real head of I 
the secret service at the time of | 
the bombing. What does not 
emerge is for whom he was 
supposed to be working. 


would be a strong advance by 
Senor Adolfo Suarez, the for- 
mer prime minister who guid- 
ed Spain's transition to 
democracy. 

The polls say disenchant- 
ment, with the Socialists has 
led people to switch support to 
Senor Suarez, with the result 
that his tiny Democratic and 
Soda] Centre Party, which 
had only two seats in the old 
Parliament, could end up with 
15 to 32. 

The polls confirmed the 
impression that Set) or Manuel 
Fraga's right-wing Popular At 
fiance cannot significantly in- 
crease its seats, still mustering 
just under a hundred. 

Meanwhile, the Basque Na- 
tionalist party, in power in the* 
autonomous region, has al- 1 
ready offered to negotiate its 
support in Madrid if the 
Socialists foil to get an overall 
majority. 

In the Basque country in 
1982 the Sodalists took votes 
from the centre and extreme 
left, and it is the problem of 
repeating the performance this 
lime which worries party 
managers. 

Senor Gonzalez rejected ne- 
gotiations with the Basque 
terrorists, and at the weekend 
left it to his lieutenants to 
attack ETA and those forces 
which support it

Wave of 
bombings 
alarms 
Pakistan 

From Hasan Akhtar 
Islamabad 

The cabinet of the North- 
West Frontier province is 
reported to have recommended 
amendments to anti-terrorist 
laws to provide for the swift 
trial of people accused of 
terror activities and bombings. 

Mr Arbab Jahangir Khan, 
the province's Chief Minister, 
said in Peshawar on Saturday 
that a rise in the number of 
bomb blasts in parts of the 
province near Afghanistan, 
had assumed alarming propor- 
tions and the federal Govern- 
ment was also worried. 

The provincial government 
is said to have recommended 
that single tribunals should try 
those accused of bombing and 

murder instead of two different 

arts separately hearing 
bombing and mm-ddr charges 
against the same person. 

The majority of Afghan 
sfhgees and Mujahideen are 
ised in the sensitive -prov- 
ince. The provincial govern- 
ment is said to have started a 
more elaborate system

Asian seven fail to 
reach: terror pact 


From Ahmed Fad, Dhaka 


Efforts by the South Asian . 
Association for Regional Co- 
operation to achieve a com- 
mon strategy for dealing -with 
terrorism ran aground at the 
weekend. 

• Delegates from. the seven 
member nations foiled to

terrorism convention, sources 
said yesterday. 

About 27 officials from 
India, Pakistan, ' Sri Lanka, 
Nepal, Maldives, Bhutan arid 
Bangladesh, the host, dis- 
cussed 12 recommendations 
asking their governments to 
forge dose links between secu- 
rity agencies to combat cross- 
border terrorism. They 
disagreed however, on the 
vital question of extradition. 

Mr Abdul Hamid Chowd- 
huiy of Bangladesh, who 
chaired the meeting, said that 
violence by extremist Sikhs in 
the Indian state of Punjab and 
Tamil separatists in northern 
Sri Lanka were discussed but 
officials decided to evade a 
definition of terrorism. 

“This could have endan- 
gered the meeting because 


member states were not unan- 
imous on where legitimate 
political struggle ended and 
terrorism began,” he said. 

Bangladesh and India, 
which accuse each other of 
providing sanctuaries for trith 
al separatists, avoided a do; 
bate on the issue.

Big hits, quick wits, fast grass 


Next Monday, Wimbledon will celebrate 
100 years of men's singles. In the first 




of two articles based on his new book. The 


Times Tennis Correspondent Rex Bellamy 
describes a tournament quintessentially 


am 


British — except in the way it is played 


; ■ A paradox about the game's 

■ greatest festival is that it reduces 
■ .tennis to a crude form — mere 

flashes of beauty, with no endur- 
. ; ing flame Rallies tend to be over 
•v, before they become interesting. 
_ . Much of the men's tennis at 
^Wimbledon is drained of colour. 

( Watching it is rather like travelling 
''-'back in lime to the era of black- 
~ ;.and-white television. 

Another paradox is that the 
^smash-and-grab raids of Wimble- 
don are un-British. The British are 
not renowned for the hasty vio- 
lence, that is the enemy of order, 
nor for the gambling instinct that 
“ challenges reason: But violent 
gambling is the nature of tennis as 
it is played on grass. 

The quality, the standard of 
play, is usually exemplary. But 
grass strips tennis down to its 
fundamentals. There is not much 
i - profit in the graces of subtlety and 
nlTincsse. There is not much time for 
-patterned manoeuvring. Even 
-.''Manuel Santana, so imaginative 
and artistic on clay, had to acquire 
— a big service and carefully restrict 
repertoire of shots in order to 
....win Wimbledon. In other words. 
“Twhen winning Wimbledon he was 
; less interesting, less fun to watch. 
.‘"4han he was when winning in 
Paris. 

" r . On grass, the important things 
are power, fast reactions, a capaci- 
ty for improvisation. These quali- 
’.ties are necessary on any surface. 

■ •But they are not enough, in 
‘..themselves, to satisfy the connois- 

•seur. 

There are ghosts at Wimbledon. 
t : They are. friendly but rather 
Irjntimidating — almost tangible in 
^ the enduring strength of their 
ri personalities. The greatness of 
Yesterday can be sensed every- 
- where. The place is like an old 
'bouse in which new owners are 
always conscious of those who 
‘Jived there before them. The 
.. ghosts have names like Suzanne 
'lenglen, Bill Tilden. Henri 
^.Cochet, Helen Wills. Maureen 


Connolly and Rod Laver. .The 
players of today cannot close their 
minds to the players of yesterday. 

This is particularly true on the 
centre court. Its perimeter is 
roofed which gives the court an 
enclosed, concentrated, almost 
claustrophobic ambience. There 
are limes when the centre court 
has the character of ‘an indoor 
arena. Many great players, men 
and women of strong personal- 
ities. have sometimes been over- 
whelmed by this powerful aura. 
For a few games they can be 
afflicted by a form of mental 
paralysis, so that they just hit balls

mannerisms of a well-rehearsed 
actor treading a familiar stage: the 
fingers of his left hand flicking 
away the sweat and hitching his 
sodden shirt back on to his 
shoulders. 

Yet behind the animal was the 
artist, behind the lion a sporting 
surgeon with a wondrous delicacy 
of touch. What enabled Gonzales 
to keep going, in addition to his 
physique and his courage, was bis 
economy of effort — his facile 
blend of power and subtlety. What 
enabled him to win was his superb 
ability to play the big points welL 

In those days the players — 
unlike today's pampered heroes — 


had no chairs to sit on during 
chan geo vers. Gonzales and 
Pasarell stayed on then- feet for the 
longest match in Wimbledon's 
history. 

In those days, too, one had time 
to sit down and write a considered 
expansive piece for the later 
edi Lions. The first edition report 
was a nerve-racking trip through a 
mental mangle. Play did not begin 
until two o'clock and. after a rew 
hours chasing news like a squirrel 
collecting nuts, one tad to extem- 
porize 1.000 words straight out of 
the notebook. Equipped with a 
pint of beer. I would get on the 
telephone and hope for a compe- 


tent copy-taker, who would get me 
through the words before the beer 
got through me. 

The character of the players and 
the play certainly helped. There 
wasadayin 1971 when Rod Laver 
beat Tom Okker in a fine match 
between two whippy, swift and 
restlessly adventurous . welter- 
weights. Their tennis was all 
timing, touch and improvisation. 

Laver's efficiency level looked 
about 80 per cent and he gave the 
impression that' he knew where to 
find the other 20 per cent when he 
needed it. We noticed anew the 
lazily self-conscious walk, the 
blurred lightning of reflexes, foot- 


When it mattered most. Okker 
was a man trying to snatch 
sunbeams out of the air. 

In 1974 Ken Rosewall won 6-8, 
4-6. 6-1. 6-3 again 51 Stan Smith, 
who bad a match point in the tie- 
break. That marvellous recovery 
made RosewalL, at 39. the oldest 
finalist since 1912 and the only 
man to play in finals 20 years 
apart The transformation was 
astonishing. - Having scraped 
through the first set Smith visibly 
grew in confidence as he won the 
second and went to 5-3 in the 
third. He looked awfully big. He 
had no more muscles than anyone 
else but they covered larger areas. 
When he extended his limbs to the 
limit to serve, it seemed that yards 
and yards were unfolding. 

Rosewall kept looking sadly at 
.the ground, like a man wbo Tiad 
been presented with a dud cheque 
after waiting 22 years for a golden- 
handshake. He kept serving dou- 
ble faults, too.* With his service, 
this was like the driver of a hearse

C ole Porter loved it Ev- 
ery young person 
should have some of it 
Ernest Hemingway thought 
But this year, according to an 
official French estimate, about 
800.000 Americans decided 
that Paris in the springtime is 
something they could do 
without - 

The French luxury' trade is 
beginning to count the cost 
Like African nomads looking 
for the rains, the high fashion 
boutique owners around the 
Madeleine search for signs 
that the financial drought is 
ending. Oh. for a glimpse of a 
stetson hat Where are you, 
Betsy Bloom ingdale? 

For the casual Paris visitor 
seeking a bit of international 
glitter, it is all very peculiar. 
After 10 o'clock al night the 
Hemingway Bar at the Ritz is 
normally glowing with that 
reckless good cheer exuded by 
wealthy people away from 
home who have dined well 
and don't feel like going to bed 
yet. When I strayed in last 
week there was no one there at 
all. 

If luxury hoteliers are ques- 
tioned about how they are 
doing in this situation, their 
invariable policy is to say that 
they are not doing too badly, 
thanks, though of course some 
of their competitors have been 
seriously hit. Walking off the 
Place de la Concorde, past the 
quadruple bay trees and across 
the half-acre doormat of the 
Crillon Hotel. 1 was tactless 
enough to ask the under 
manager of this I Sth-century 
palace (48 suites from £310 
upwards, service included)' 
how he was faring. 

“For the next 1 0 days we are 
fully booked", replied the tall 
ambassadorial Monsieur 
Hirondelle. without so much 
as the blink of an eyelid. “For 
us. the crisis is over, because 
most of our diems are 'serious 
business people who do not 
take notice of everything they 
read in ifte papers. For others, 
of course " 

Staying at the Ritz. howev- 
er. was “like staying in an 
empty funeral parlour", in the 
wends of one English lady 
guest 1 found there. One 
complete floor was closed. 
"Purcli because of construc- 
tion work", explained Ritz 
president Frank Klein. Con- 
struction work? In the middle 
of the season? “It is not too 



bad. A drop of between seven 
and 1 0 per cent. But we are not 
in so much trouble as hotels 
like the Sheraton who need' 
tour groups to survive . . ." 

For a tactual damage assess- 
ment I went to British-born 
Elizabeth Olivereau of the 
Relais & Chateaux interna- 
tional luxiny hotel chain. 
They keep a marketing office 
in the United States and 
around 60 per cent of their 
trade has been coming from 
there. - 

“In 1985". she said, “which 
was a bumper year, we sold 

360.000 bed-nights in our 1 50 
French hotels. In 1986. if you 
take account of the figures so 
far. we would expect to sell 

180.000 bed-nights which is a 
drop of 50 per cent. In cash 
terms that would mean a 
decrease* in the takings for 
rooms, meals, bars and so on 
of around 150 million francs 
which, apart from anything 
else, means 18 million francs 
less for the state in VAT." 


now mainly east-coast Ameri- 
can urge for an annual injec- 
tion of cosmopolitan chic as it 
is distilled in Paris. Not just 
hotels, boutiques and taxis are 
due to suffer if this mystic link 
is broken. Americans are es- 
sential fuel for the Parisian 
social whirl. “Everybody is 
complaining", according to 
one professional party-giver. 
"The florists such as 
Lachaume and Moulie-Savart, 
the famous caterers, and 
houses such as Carillon, which 
rent equipment for big 
parties." It wasn't like that 
when the Socialists were in 
power. 


A visit to any of the 
chain's fairy-tale cha- 
teau hotels outside Par- 
is reveals the size of the 
problem. At the Chateau de 
NieuiL a superb moated and 
turreted 16 th-century confec- 
tion near Angouleme. it is the 
habil of proprietor Jean-Mi- 
chel Bodinaud to decorate 
each dinner table with a flag 
representing the nationality of 
the guests sitting there. “We 
would normally have five or 
six stars and stripes out at this 
time", he said last weekend. 
This year there was one. 

To a certain kind of US 
visitor. “Paris-France" is an 
element of American folklore. 
A whole sub-industry ranging, 
from the International Herald 
Tribune to the Folies Beigeres 
exists to serve the rich and 


T he little shops around 
the Avenue Montaigne 
and the Rue de Fau- 
bourg St Honore are estimated 
in the trade to be suffering a 
drop of between 30 and 50 per 
cent in business. “It was 
extraordinary", relates one 
English visitor, “to be able to 
walk into the Chanel boutique 
and not be assailed by loud 
American accents." 

All this may partly be due to 
the official State department 
advice to Americans who do 
decide to risk travelling to 
Europe this summer. They 
have been recommended to 
leave out stetson hats, violent- 
ly coloured plaid trousers and 
loud conversations in public 
places. 

“It is so stupid", com- 
plained one idle boutique 
assistant I talked to. “Last 
year 25 Americans died 
abroad as a result of terrorism. 
But 3.000_died at home chok- 
ing on their food." 

in Paris, as always, the 
greatest danger remains that 
of choking on the bill.

A tenth of all council booses

Government's right-to-buy 
legislation began in 1981 have 
been bought m Northern Ire- 
land. Today the tide deeds of 
the 30,000th such bouse in 
Ulster will be ceremonially 
handed over at Comber, Comi- 
ty Down. 

Even allowing for its scale 
as the United Kingdom's larg- 
est boosing authority, with 
182,000 tenants, the Northern 
Ireland \ Housing Executive 
has outstripped all its main- 
land counterparts ia its for- 
th erance of Mrs Thatcher’s 
philosophies on wider home 
ownership. 

In combination with boom- 
__ private bouse building in 
ster — each of .the last four 
years has seen a record num- 
ber *of private homes built, 
with this year's figure likely to 
top 7.200 — die executive’s 
achievements have brought 
about a transformation in die 
provincial boasrag scene. 

Over the same period, the 
proportion of home owners 
among Northern Ireland’s 
householders has risen from 
48 per cent to 60 per cent, a 
rate of growth double that 
experienced in mainland Brit- 
ain.From being well below tbe 
British level hi 1981, private 
home ownership in Ulster is 
now only a single percentage 
point behind the mainland 
figure. 

Tbe support of tbe major 
building societies has been 
critical to the success of die 
executive's sates drive. The 
impetus has been not only a 
desire to increase commitment 
and confidence in an economi- 
cally battered province, but die 
Treasury's agreement that 
right-to-buy revenues could be 
recycled to increase the 
executive's house - tedding 
programme.

In the final. Rosewall lasted 
only 93 minutes against Jimmy 
Connors, the youngest men’s 
champion since Lew Hoad beat 
Rosewall in 19S6. A more recent 
case for youth was argued by a 
player celebrated for his imitation 
of a man cycling down a cobbled 
street without a bicycle. 

In 1985 Boris Becker, aged 17 
years and seven months, became 
Wimbledon champion at only the 
second attempt when he beat 
Kevin Curren 6-3, 6-7,. 7-6. 6-4 in 
three hours aiid >8 minutes, on 
one of the loveliest afternoons of 
what passes for an English sum- 
mer. Becker was the first German, 
the first unseeded player, and the 
youngest competitor to win the 
men's singles championship. 

With all those extraordinary 
feels jumping around in the mind, 
one vaguely wondered what ex- 
cesses the authors of schoolboy 
fiction would be driven to in the 
future. There had been nothing 
like this before and even Becker 
could not make it happen again.

The average price, after

over the past five years has - 
been £7,500 and the real r 
bargains have been among 
older properties bnfit m tbe 
1960s or before. The executive 
cannot sell honses below their 
construction cost, meaning 
that newer properties in such 
places as Poleglass. the large- 
ly Roman Catholic estate be-

£20,000 even after discount.

boosing economy with the 
continuing story of Industrial

Small local businesses with 
committed proprietors are, 
like individuals, experiencing / 
substantial growth while the 
Northern Ireland Industrial 
Development Board's search 
for major inward investments 
continues to yield virtually no 
results. 

Richard Weir believes that 
the building societies’ experi- 
ence in tbe province, tbe UK’s 
poorest 'region, bolds many 
lessons that may be applicable 
in mainland Britain- 

On the wider point of indus- 
trial and commercial invest-

There are two disturbing elements in 


your correspondent's article; the first is 
that she “simply would not have known 
how to object”, and the second and more, 
worrying point is that she seems to think 
that one should not "presume” to talk to 
sons about contraception and moral 
issues. 

How much more impressive her 
article would have been had she finished 
it by saying that she had regularly 
discussed the responsibility of the man 
in caring about the outcome of his sexual 
freedom. The responsibility is even 
greater if he forms a relationship with a 
girl whose parents do not share such a 
liberal view or have not encouraged open 
discussion on these important issues. 
From LadySmcd/ey, Oak End Way.

Provided with a fait accompli such as 
your correspondent has described, I 
should have welcomed the girlfriend in 
the morning in a friendly way. but in her 
presence I would have said firmly to my 
son: “Next time you bring friends home. 

I suggest that you make up beds for them 
in rooms other than your own.” 

What my children do outside my 
home is beyond my control, but 1 think 
that moral guidance throughout a child's 
life is very important and the only 





chance a parent has to imprint guidelines 
of acceptable moral conduct in later life. 

* Sometimes a remembered piece of 
advice will provide a welcome fence 
behind which a bewildered teenager can 
retreat from the advances of a threaten- 
ing peer group. 

From June Neale. Mapper/ey Halt 
Drive. Nottingham. ■ 

My own experience was similar. al- 
though. before my daughter moved away 
to Manchester Poly, she had at least 
observed the proprieties in the flat in 
which we were living. There had also 
been, surprise expressed at a friend's 
mother who actually served breakfast in 
bed to "Bill and Jenny”. 

When she arrived home with Marie in 
her first undergraduate year, they just 
moved into her- bedroom and presum- 
ably hs single bed. I didn't of course take 
breakfast in bed to them although they 
stayed there until I lam, but I padded 
about feeling decidely sheepish. Nothing 
was ever said but later, much later, when 
Mark had become a painful memory, she 
did observe. “I don't know how I could 
inflict anything so embarrassing on you 
and Dad in that small flat.” 

Since that time she has managed her 
personal life much more discreetly.

“For women, the fear is 
often linked with the arrival of

Mr Yafie and one of his two 
co-therapists at Hatton Cross 
tube station. The morning is 
spent at Heathrow, boarding a 
- grounded Concorde and then, 
if there is one available, a Tri- 
Star. Mr Yafie says: "Con- 
corde is particularly good for 
claustrophobia bacause it is 
such- a narrow plane. After- 
_ wards a . Tri-Star, seems posi- 
tively enormous.” 

After lunch at the terminal 
(where the. group* can watch 
takeoffs and landings), they 
gd 16 the air traffic 'control 
tower where they can see 
planes- approaching on the 
radar. Mr Yafie says: “It’s 
important for the group to see 
how everything works and 
how in control all the staff 
look. Seeing planes trundling 
in and out with monotonous 
regularity, -with as much- dra- 
ma as buses going into a bus 
garage, is very reassuring." 

T hen everyone checks 
in for a 4tonmute 
flight to Paris. They 
are allocated seats to- 
gether on the lefrside'of the 
plane, so that conditions echo 
those produced by' the, -flight 
simulator. Mr Yaffo and his. 
therapist'- talk .the ' group

airborne, the group islaken up

*Tve only had one chap 
who refused to take the flight 
after we’d checked in", says 
Mr Yafie. “and there were a 
number of reasons for this. 
One was that he hadn't left his 
wife in 20 years and when he 
rang her shortly before take- 
off she sounded upset 
“Another man did say he 
was going to get off — he was a 
big chap and when he'd said 
that on planes in the past, 
people bad let him off I didn't 
strap him down in his seat, but 
I did put an arm over his 
shoulders and tried to get him 
to see that he'd feel worse if be 
got off than if he stayed.. He 
just wanied to be fed through 
it and he was all right”

weeks to two months later." 

Betty Hobbs, the wife of 
retired racehorse trainer Bruce 
Hobbs, had not been on a 
plane for 30 years until she 
. flew to Paris with one of 
Maurice Yaffe’s seminar 
groups. Since then she has 
flown to St Lucia and Miami 
and admits that she quite 
enjoyed her last flight 

"I was totally terrified of 
flying. I had flown a little as I 
thought I ought to try and 
conquer it, but that was a long 
time ago. I suppose ft was 
really a feeling of insecurity up 
-there, the thought of planes 
crashing, of wings felling off 
Then someone told me about 
the course and two close 
friends treated me to ft as a 
birthday present. 

“We spent the morning at 
Heathrow watching other peo- 
ple gening ready to fly and we 
sat on Concorde. I was feeling 
all right at this point Then we 
went outside and watched. 
.That's when 1 had a bad half 
hour my tummy cramped up 
and I thought T can't get on 
one of those things.' But my 
husband was coming on the 
flight wftlj the friends whose 
birthday present it was so I felt 
duty.bound to go through with 
it arid I just pulled myself 
together. 

■ "Id feci on the plane, the 
girl sitting next to me was so 
frightened that I had. to ‘hold 
her' hand and I didn't really 
have time to think about 
! myself. And the breathing 
exercise we were taught 
, forked, marvellously. One girl 
1 was crying , on the flight so 
Maurice suggested we all did 
the - exercises and within 10 
minutes she had controlled 
herself and .fell much better.” 

English teacher Caroline 
Zvegrmzov is another of Mau- 
rice Yaffo's success stories. 

I Now she says that she cannot 
really recreate the panic she 
used to have, “which is odd 
when’ you've carried those 


‘Coping with 
a fear must 
be one of 
the best 
feelings in 
the world’ 


feelings around for so long”. 

It was claustrophobia which 
prevented Caroline from fly- 
ing. She says: “It just came on. 
Two days before I was due to 
fly to Cork I'd been at a 
concert in the Festival Hall 
and felt as if Td wanted to get 
out although I'd stayed. But 
then, when I was on the plane 
I got in a real state. I thought: 
‘The doors are going to close 
and I’ll be shut in.' And I 
couldn't go through with iL It 
was total blind panic.” That 
was in 1968. 


A lthough things grad- 
ually gov better. Car- 
oline was still unable 
to travel by tube, felt 
uneasy in the back of a two- 
door car. and did not attempt 
to fly again. She took the 
course because she fell her 
problem was a nuisance to 
others. 

“On the second day when 
we had to meet at Hatton 
Cross tube station I said: ‘But 
how will I get there?* Maurice 
just said he was sure I could do 
it I could ge.t the bus to 
Heathrow and then it was just 
one stop. So I did it and felt 
like a million dollars. Faring a 
fear and. coping with . it must 
be one of the 1 best feelings in 
the world. 

"We flew in one of those 
double-decker planes, and 
Maurice had us. going up and 
down in the lift. You look at it 
.and it's like a nasty vertical 
coffin. But you go down in it 
and at the bottom there's a

South Africa are about to fire a

Africa. This week its first publica- 
tion. a pamphlet setting out 
objections to sanctions, will land 
on the desk of every MP in the 
Commons, probably just in time 
for Tuesday’s debate on South 
Africa. The committe’s next task 
will be to circulate explanations of 
the value of South African associ- 
ation to Britain, and descriptions 
of how British companies are 
improving the lot of black South 
Africans. Sir Leslie Smith, the 
Bicsa chairman and former head 
of British Oxygen, stresses that all 
the companies are anti-apartheid 
but believe sanctions will do 
nothing to help. “I know we’ll be 
accused of self-interest We have 
no reason to hide that" he told me 
yesterday. In his view the case 
against sanctions has not yet been 
properly advanced.

East will go down fighting rather 
than take the easy option. After 
rosing to Ken Livingstone in last

parties in London and the West

"I entered Parliament from Brent 
20 years ago and have lived in the 
area since I was 15." he 
says.“ There's a job to be done in 
the party locally and I intend to 
stay." The job, of course, is to 
create havoc for Livingstone and 
his supporters, whom he wants 
investigated for “misconduct". 
Freeson denies, however, that he

PHS 


Today sees the arrival at commit- 
tee stage of the innocuously 
entitled European Communities 
(Amendment) Bill. But the bill is 
by no means innocuous. It is by fer 
the most important piece of 
legislation concerning relations 
between Britain and Europe to 
come before Parliament since the 
European Communities Act of 
1971 If it reaches the statute book 
in its present form, as is likely, it is 
vital to ensure that the legislation 
that Hows from it is in the interests 
of this country. 

The bill provides for the passing 
into law of the Single European 
Act- This incorporates a number 
of amendments to the Treaty of 
Rome and w3S approved by the 
EEC Council of Ministers earlier 
this year. It now has to be passed 
by the legislatures of all EEC 
member slates. 

The Act will have a direct 
impact on British commercial and 
industrial practice. It will effec- 
tively mean that there will be 
hardly a corner of British busi- 
ness — buying and selling, manu- 
facturing. agriculture, the 
environment, insurance, the right 
to set up in business — which is 
not woven into the fabric of the 
Treaty of Rome. For. once the Act 
is passed, we are bound to accept 
all legislation adopted by the 
Council of Ministers. 

One of the most important 
amendments contained in the Act 
is the extension of majority voting 
to all decisions taken by the 
Council. This will have the effect 
of making proposals for Commu- 
nity legislation more frequent. It is 
also likely to make it more 
difficult for ministers to slow

after changes to the Treaty of Rome

steamroller 


down the progress of proposals. 

One way to counteract this is to . 
have earlier and more effective 
scrutiny of EEC proposals at 
Westminster. The European Par- 
liament could play a role here, but 
h has no executive responsible to 
the British electorate. It is there- 
fore vital that the Commons and 
Lords give their views before 
proposals reach the critical stage. 
And that requires more informa- 
tion to be provided much earlier. 

The government has offered 
some improvements but, given 
the likely impart of the bill on our 
economy and industrial interests, 
more are needed. The 12th report 
of the House of Lords Select 
Committee on the European 
Communities, dated May 6. 1986, 
said that “in the long term the 
positionof the UK parliament will 
become weaker" by virtue of the 
weakening of the power of British 
ministers when outvoted in the 
Council. The committee con- 
cluded that the powers of the 


European Commission in drafting 
European legislation were likely to 
increase correspondingly and 
recommended that the text of 
amendments proposed by the 
European Parliament should be 
available to Westminster much 
sooner than at present. 

Another way to counteract the 
possible diminution in UK sov- 
ereignty would be for ministers 
and Parliament to take a much 
more active role in negotiating 
and drafting proposed European 
legislation. Much of this work is 


now done by civil servants, partly 
because a Community proposal, 
once on its way, gains a mo- 
mentum all its own which deters 
effective inquiry and control The 


Second Special Report of the 
House of Commons European 
Legislation Committee of June 4 
makes detailed proposals for 
changing the terms of reference of 
this committee to ensure that 
more direct control can be ex- 
ercised over those who advise 


ministers. At 'present,- there is a 
Serious gap between those respon- 
sible for drafting the legislation 
and those who have to vote on it. 

Already, reports from the scru- 
tiny committees in both Houses of 
Parliament provide information 
to their respective bouses and to 
the wider public. But MPs and 
peers need the expert advice of 
industrialists, and commercial in- 
terests on a for more organized 
basis than exists at present. It 
would also be desirable for Euro- 
pean law to become a compulsory 
subject for solicitors and bar- 
risters. Moreover, those appointed 
to monitor European legislation 
should also have greater knowl- 
edge of procedure and law. . . . 

At present, the. level of secrecy 
observed by-our own civil servants 
during negotiations is absurd. , 
Frequently the die is cast long i 
before the impending dangers can I 
be reversed. When other EEC ! 
' member states steal a march on us ! 
in negotiations, the economic 
damage can be considerable, and 
virtually irreversible. • 

What is- needed -is a dear and | 
formal procedure which ensures, 
that information is available, not 
only to civil servants and mem- 
bers of the European Parliament, 
but also to industrial and commer- 
cial interests and parliamentarians 
in Britain. This would ensure that 
the Teal decisions remained with 
Westminster and not with the 
semi-autonomous working groups 
of civil servants who have flown 
' over to Brussels for the day.

Michael Hornsby on the implications of the new security clampdown 


Why 
Botha is 
defying 
the 
world 




Johannesburg 

No one should have been sur- 
prised by President Botha's im- 
position of a state of emergency in 
South Africa. At one level Bertha 
is indulging in what could foiriy be 
described as a fit of pique brought 
on by an unexpected stiffening of 
spines in the previously com- 
plaisant Indian and (mixed-race) 
coloured chambers of South 
Africa's iri-cameral parliament, 
which had the effect of delaying 
the passage of two Draconian new 
pieces of security legislation. 

Pretoria contended that these 
measures were essential if law and 
order were to be maintained 
during today's emotion-charged 


anniversary of the 1976 Soweto 
uprising. The bills are still being 
pushed through parliament- 
through a device which enables 
the white chamber to override the 
opposition of the other two — and 
are expected to become law later 
this month. 

Once that happens, it is possible 
that the state of emergency may be 
lifted. This would not bring much 
relief, however, as the bills would 
make available to- the police 
virtually ail the powers that they 
enjoy during the emergency. 

The new powers go well beyond 
pre-existing legislation in a num- 
ber of important ways. Any person 
will be liable to summary arrest 
without a warrant by any police- 
man or soldier, no matter how low 
his rank, - and held indefinitely 
without trial. No court may 
inquire into the reasons for the 
detention. 

The two most important addi- 
tional powers, however, are die 
indemnity against prosecution for 
any action taken “in good faith" 
by the police and army to quell 
unrest — which effectively re-

disturbances, disorders, public vi- 
olence, damage to property or 
persons, strikes and boycotts) as 
well as any counter-action taken’ 
by the array and police. . 

This restriction is the same as 
that enforced during the previous 
state of emergency, with the 
important difference that it now 
applies throughout the country 
and not just in certain areas. There 
is, in addition, a tanning of ail 
reporting of “subversive state- 
ments", including statements 
advocating economic sanctions 
against South Africa or those 
“having the effect of" inciting 
people to oppose the emergency or 
to support outlawed organiza- 
tions, such as the ANC 

The press controls are probably 
the single most important reason 
why Pretoria has rescaled to 
emergency powers. There is no 
doubt that Botha is deeply con- 
cerned about his inability to 
control the unrest and is sensitive 
to the taunts of extreme right-wing 
while groups that he no longer has 
the willpower to crush black 
rebellion. 

The government also remains 


This was proved last August in 
his famous “Rubicon" speech to a 
National Party congress in Natal, 
when Botha brutally demolished 
expectations about reform that 
bad been raised by an over- 
enthusiastic briefing of western 
diplomats in Vienna by “Pik” 
Botha, his foreign minister and the 
cabinet’s chief dove. 


Later, P.W. Botha announced 
many of the reforms that had been 
promised in his August speech, 
including the abolition of the pass 
laws, but he had made his point: 
he would move in his own good 
time and not at .the dictate of 
foreign pressure. The mice he paid 
for making that point — a finan- 
cial crisis brought on by the calling 
in of short-term loans by foreign 
banks and a run on the rand — 


Journalists do not really figure 
among the fictional heroes of the 
young. There are Spitfire pilots, 
Melchester Rovers and those he- 
roic Gauls locked in ceaseless 
cartoon combat with the flower of 
Caesar’s legions . . . but report- 
ers? Decidedly not. Except, that is, 
for Tintin. the cartoon creation of 
the Belgian artist Herge (Georges 
Remi) who first appeared in the 
pages of Le Petit Vingtitme in 
1 929 and is now enjoying a revival 
in Britain. 

In the course of more than five 
decades of adventures, this ever- 
youthful hero has solved mys- 
teries and found scoops in all 
corners of the globe. Encountering 
the Abominable Snowman and 
levitating lamas in Tibet one 
moment aiding counter-revolu- 
tionaries in South America the 
next Tintin — immaculately clad 
in plus-fours and raincoat — re- 
mains the best-travelled foreign 
correspondent in the world. 

A master of impenetrable dis- 
guise. a brilliant linguist and a 
crack shot in the Sahara -with a 
.303 Lee Enfield. Tintin has none 
of the pressing demands which 
haunt tiie existence of today’s 
foreign correspondents. For 
Tintin there are no deadlines to 
meet, no editors to appease.

Tintinadulation 
—the new cult 





pages of a new adventure on the 
drawing board, few in Britain 
imagined that his characters 
would become cult figures. Until 
recently. Tintin admirers have 
been confined to a small circle. 
These included foreign correspon- 
dents who. during their weary 
travels, were delighted to see that 
the Balkans or the Congo corre- 
sponded dosely to the world 
Herge had depicted. Other devo- 
tees were graphic designers w ho 
admired the colours and 
draughtsmanship of the drawings. 

Over the past few months, the 


enthusiasm of the devotees — said 
to include such diverse figures as 
Sir Terence Conran and film 
producer Steven Spielberg — has 
been drenched by a tidal wave of 
Tintin memorabilia in London 
stores. In Whitehall, young dip- 
lomats who were first introduced 
to the world of Balkan intrigue by 
Tintin’s adventures in Sing 
Ottokar's Sceptre can be seen 
sporting Tintm wrist-watches. 
Architects send each other Profes- 
sor Calculus birthday cards, while 
in West Germany, at least two 
hardened newspaper correspon- 


stubbornly convinced that the 
unrest is the work of a snail 
minority of blacks, a “revolu- 
tionary clique", whose importance 
is blown up out of all proportion 
by the publicity they get, particu- 
larly in the foreign media. Over 
the past year or so, a fluctuating, 
battle has been waged between 
doves and hawks within the South. 
African cabinet This has now 
ended, at least for the tune being, 
with a decisive victory for the 
hawk/ military faction. Ostensibly, 
Botha has been a neutral umpire 
in this struggle, but his tempera- 
ment and instincts align him with 
the hawks. 


must be assumed to have been 
regarded by him as worth while. 

Botha showed his true odours 
again in February when be sided 
with F.W. de Klerk, the conser- 
vative leader of the National Party 
in the Transvaal, where the right- 
wing threat is strongest, in a 
cabinet row over Put Botha's 
statement that he foresaw a Wad: 
president as a logical outcome of 
the government's reform pro- 
gramme. The hapless Pik. was 
publicly rebuked by the president 
In parliament and only managed 
to save himself from dismissal by 
writing a h umiliating apology. 

Something very like the pre- 
Rubicon situation developed 
again this year in the fortnight or’ 
so before the last visit to South 
Africa of the Commonwealth 
Eminent Pinsons Group. Once 
a gain it was Pik Botha who 
inflated expectations about the 
EPGfc mission by sending a 
special envoy to London with a 
misleadingly encouraging South 
African response to the Common- 
wealth group's proposals. 

As the speculation, and expecta- 
tion, built up, the president started 
backing away. He was incensed, 
according to well-informed 
sources, by the impression being 
given, as he saw it, that the 
country was going up in flames, 
and that the EPG was coming to 
make arrangements for the trans- 
fer of power to the ANC 

His response was characteristic 
and. predictable. First came foe 
raids on Botswana, Zimbabwe and i 
Zambia, which were designed not 
only to prick foe inflated babble of 
the EPG initiative but also to 
demonstrate who was boss. It was, 
in Botha’s words at the time, a 
“first instalment". How long, after 
Saturday’s car bomb in Durban, 
will we have to wait for . the 
second? . 

Pretoria has now retreated into 
foe laager. The reforms will pro- 
ceed, but at Pretoria’s pace. Mas- 
sive force will be used to contain 
unrest Political dialogue, even 
with conservative blade leaders 
such as Gatsha Buthdezi, is out of 
foe question for some time to 
come. Sanctions, in one form or 
another, are now accepted as 
inevitable, and the merits of a 
siege economy are befog actively 
canvassed. It is a grim prospect, 
but one which Botha now seems 
fully prepared to embrace.

what be hopes will be the fust 
internationally successful Tintin

on the film will be Londoner Jane 
Taylor, whose shop in Floral 
Street has become a shrine, for 
Tintin admirers. She is convinced 
foal Tintin is a great leveller in

retired army, officer- researching 
into Balkan uniforms between the 
wars walks out with a copy of King 
Ottokar's Scept re under his arm. 

Long-standing Tintin devotees 
see these -developments as vin- 
dication of their years of isolated 
devotion to the perfect blend of 
the light-hearted and the serious. 
Where else could a child team- of

From a week spent visiting educa- 
tional institutions all over the 
country, here are some traveller's 
tales. 

In a depressed area of the

is peisuading young people to stay

He is in despair because the local

won’t play. A levels aren't train-

In a prosperous part of foe 
Home Counties commuter belt, 
the father of a gui at a further 
education college is incensed over 
a wheeze of some of his daughter’s 
friends. They quarrel with their 
parents (either in reality or as a 
device), get a letter saying they 
have been- thrown out of foe

allowance from foe DHSS and 
then move tack home — continu- 
ing to draw foe £60 or £70 a week. 
Some of foe parents are well-off

When I repeat this story to a 
.medical academic in foe.North 
East he caps it. with- another. 
Young unemployed girls there 
have devised an even more in- 
genious scheme for drawing all foe 
extra benefits which go with the

In two polytechnics in large

are local residents, workers made

In a.small room somewhere at foe 
top of Harreds store in 
Knightsbridge (all imitators ruth- 
lessly pursued), a small bunch of 
ruthless men were holding a small, 
ruthless meeting. This was . foe 
Harrods hit squad. Their leader 
was a hard-eyed man wearing a 
pin-stripe suit, balaclava helmet . 
and dark glasses. Also a stocking 
over his head and a sinister- 
looking mask. . 

- “Ymmmmmmmmm", be said. 
“Wegrrrmmmmmm yyrammmm 


“You can lake the disguise off 
chief", said one of foe number. 
“We're safe here." ■ 

Cautiously foe leader of foe 
Harrods hit squad (not to be 
confused with any other hit squad 
of a similar name) removed foe 
underwear from his features and 
stared at them solemnly. 

“As you know”, he said, “it is 
our job to hunt down anyone in 
the world who is using foe name 
Harrods" — here they all crossed 
themselves — “and • crush them 
without mercy. There is only one 
Harrods." 

“And hts name is Harrods", foe 
rest murmured reverently.. 

• “Quite. Now, we have recently 
found a restaurant in New Zea- 
land trading under the name of 
HamxTs ■ Restaurant — or, to be 
more accurate, Reich here found a 
New 1 Zealand restaurant trading 
under the name of Harrbd’s. This 
they thought they could do be- 
cause foe name of foe man who 
founded the . restaurant was 
Hairod." 

A low ripple of callous laughter 
went round the group, as they all 
looked admiringly at the man 
called Fletch. He bad a stubbly 
chin, eyes like ice, hands, that 
would crush a skull and a glass of 
whisky in-front of him- You could 
tell he was a solicitor. He alone did 
not share in the laughter. ' 

“I’ve been thinking about it, 
chief" he said. ‘Tdon’t see how.a 
small restaurant in New Zealand 
is going to affect our trade. I mean, . 
it’s a hell of -a long trek from 
Knightsbridge..." 

The man they called thief was 
on his feet in a flash: He- drilled 
Field! with his eyes." Yon fbolT 
he said. “We don't pay- you to .do 
our thinking! But since you ask,

m New Zealand becomes known

trend of history. Crowds of Ameri-

Simultaneously, people wilt start - 
going round London, saying: ‘ 
‘Lefs eat at Harrods tonight. I- 
hear they do a superb roast lamb’.; 
Confusion will set in. Especially as ; 
we're dosed at night." 

“Yeah", said Fletch. “But on;

lifters that we could wefl do 
without will drift out to New 
Zealand. Anyway, what’s one- 
small place . . ? 

“There is only one HarrodsT 
roared foe chief. 

“And his name is Harrods”,. 


they all echoed. 

The chief stared at their eager, 
brutal feces. He smiled. “Word - 
has just come in". Ire said softly, 
“that there is a small chemist’s. 1

A crowd of hands went up. The

In an article in. this month’s 
Encounter, Edward . Plaice asserts 
that there are' more people in 
Britain “living fives of damnable 
ignorance, futility and erap-. 
tiness", than anywhere else in;. 
Europe. He quotes Ernest Bevin’s 
remark about his own class and 
foe “terrible poverty of its; 
ambitions" and speculates that it 
is “protably truer now than when', 
he made it” Sweeping judgements ■ 
like this are so unverifiable that 
they can never be treated, as more; 
than mood music; yet it is mood. 


is true that when we use words like ■ 
“devastation" and “wastelands" 
about foe old industrial parts of 
Britamthe devastation isasrnuch_- 
of people's dreams-as of foe actual' 
physical structure. .The feet that, 
those dreams were so unambitious , 

— a .good job, a decent home — - 

only makes - the destruction the' 
crueller. Those modest dreams 
having been destroyed, nothings 
has been put in their place. - ; 

Into this .vacuum of purpose^ 
comes' foe absorbing activity of 
manipulating foe social security, 
system. And a society which gives; 
young people such a limited sense* 
of self-respect does not fed itself to 
be in the strong position to take a 
moral stand about that, even when 
foe same attitudes infect young 
people who have no particular caU 
on. our sympathy. 

' Everybody in foe old industrial 
areas of high- unemployment 
knows that foe same tan of jobs 
are not coming back. In many at 
them it is now the public institu-- 
tions that are foe main employers. 

— the local authorities, the health.; 
service, the universities — and. 
there are some who see public, 
sector expansion as the only way 
of increasing employment. ' 

This in part explains the Labour 
Party’s continuing ascendancy hr 
these areas- and the expanding 
importance of the? public sector 
unions. This vision of the future; 
sees foe hi-tech industries of the 
South East generating fire wealth 
with which the rest of the country 
provides itself with public service: 
jobs. In justice, it is pointed out 
that this is merely a geographical 
role reversal of foe situation in the , 
19th century, though the wealth'' 
was then in private hands. 

An alternative - vision of foe 
future is fatalistic about job losses. 
A new concept of human status 
and dignity most evolve, they say. 
They lafle of voluntary and. 
community activity, of breeding 
whippets, growing prize leeks. 

Neither vision will appeal to 
Mrs Thatcher's government But 
'foe alternative — foe creation of 
new industrial- wealth in the 
regions — will need a workforce 
with skills it fe doing nothing to 
encouragerjnafied, in its attitudes 
to education, and in the present 
financial incentives which it offers 
young people to leave school it is 
doing foe very opposite.

QUESTIONS FOR OXFORD 


Wailing about the demise of Salt 2 






“ - 




The -untimely death of the’ 
children of the rich or famous 
has a peculiar poignancy. Af- 
fluence is. demonstrated to. be 

no. defence against' mortality. 
The via dolorosa of the be- 
reaved parents is all the 
steeper, leading from Cabinet 
table or Mediterranean holi- 
day to the mortuary. It has to 
be . traversed in the painful 
light of publicity. 1 . 

Let the. grief of Miss .Olivia 
Channon’s parents re main as 
private as it can. There is a 
larger group, cif-pebple, how- 
ever, which must consider the 
circumstances of her death in a 
more public . fashion. The 
luiivjeisity authorities at Ox- 
ford ; the whole academic cor- 
pus of dons paid by the state to 
educate the young, should ask 
themselves whether it. does not 
suggest some lessons about the 
peculiarities of Oxford and the 
Oxford system. ' 

. The death of a:gifted young 
woman is significant in every 
sense except the statistical. 
Miss Channon died at a mo- 
ment when theOxford system 
renders those passing through 
it peculiariy vulnerable. The 
degree course at Oxford places 
a unique weight on the results 
achieved in a few final days of 
exams, after three or four years 
of very loosely-structured 
education. For time out of 
mind, the nighis -after finals 
have been moments of ex- 
cess the most sober and 
studious of undergraduates, 
finally released from tension, 
can quickly make themselves 
ill when making meriy, 

This antique "Oidoid tra- 
dition has, however, become 
debased in recent years, and 
this has been recognized by 
both the university authorities 
and the police; It is significant 
that in her annual report on 
the cbndition of the university, 
the outgoing senior proctor — 
in charge of the good order of 
the undergraduate body — re- 
cently laid particular stress on 


the excesses of postexam exu- 
berance. 

It is equally significant that 
the Chief Constable of Oxford 
issued a 1 warning against 
rowdy celebrations immedi- 
ately before the final examina- 
tions began. He noted that 
revellers who blocked the pub- 
lic highway or . otherwise 
caused a public nuisance 
would be liable for criminal 
charges that could place their 
future career in. jeopardy, 
whatever their examination 
results. 

-But the Chief Constable 
went on to : recommend that 
the undergraduates return di- 
rectly from the examination 
halls to their colleges for their 
celebrations, without a.worti of 
warning about the risks (legal 
or otherwise) of anything they 
might, choose to do once 
there — which would, in some 
cases, no doubt, include taking 
dangerous and illegal drugs. 

The Chief Constable's 
recommendation therefore 
looks very much like an at- 
tempt to get unruly students 
off his territory as quickly as 
possible ... and delegate the 
responsibility for keeping or- 
der. among the revellers to the. 
university authorities. How- 
ever it also highlights a poten- 
tial gap in the policing of the 
Oxford student body, if the 
university authorities regard 
post-examination revelry, 
even when it gets out of hand, 
as jusi another tradition to be 
maintained. 

This is not, however, simply 
a matter for the exercise of 
university authority. The old 
ways and rules of Oxford 
discipline died in the 1960s; 
those taking finals at Oxford 
are all, on the state's defi- 
nition, full adults responsible 
for their actions. Even so, they 
are young and vulnerable 
adults, and the teaching staff of 
Oxford should be asking them-; 
selves this week whether their 
jobs do not lay on them all a 


greater duty of care than some 
thougbt.right to exercise. 

Oxford is both the benefi- 
ciary and the victim of its past 
a past of wealth, reputation, 
beauty, and glamour which 
does not always help it to 
function efficiently and so- 
berly in the modern world. It is 

Oxford’s ill-fortune that its 
latest scandal should appear to 
conforin to an Evelyn. Waugh ‘ 
stereotype which the author 
himself admitted was over- 
drawn, and which has faded 
further from the truth in the 40 
years since the Second World 
War. 

Other universities, anxious 
to demonstrate their shades of 
difference and not a little 
jealous of Oxford affluence, 
will join with Fleet Street in 
prolonging Oxford's miseries. 
Less privileged Oxford under- 
graduates have already shown 
their resentment at this revival 
of their university’s image of 
decadence.. 

. Oxford’s diversity, between 
quiet student and would-be 
Brideshead extra, between 
modern labs and ancient li- 
braries, is heightened by its 
collegiate structure. These col- 
leges, in theory, break down its 
teeming transient, population 
of. able, awkward youth into 
academic families. In practice, 
there is an uneasy division of 
responsibilities between 
university and college authori- 
ties, which exacerbates the 
difficulties and doubts experi- 
enced by all those called to 
exercise residual authority 
over neonatal adults, and fur- 
ther confuses the relationship 
between university authorities 
and the police. ' 

In the end, salacious curios- 
ity: in the death of Miss 
Channon will fade, leaving 
barely a mark on Oxford's 
history. But thoughtful inquiry 
into the circumstances of- a 
tragedy -which took place on 
college premises should be 
pursued.

As with the- Western alliance, 
so with th* Warsaw Pact: the 
whole is often. Iess than the 
sum of the hostile utterances 
of ohe'or other ally.- Whether 
this results from the emollient 
influence of ^the European 
members of the respective 
alliances, or front the natural 
** reluctance- of national leaders 
to go down in official docu- 
ments as uncompromising, the 
official communiques of alli- 
ance meetings tend towards 
the anodyne, even when this 
might not be expected. 

The circumstances in which 
the leaders of the Warsaw Pact 
met in Budapest last week 
seemed especially conducive 
to the adoption of a strident 
anti-NATO statement Had 
not President Reagan just 
made known his intention of 
abandoning - the: unratified 
SALT-2 agreement? Had Biot 
the foreign ministers of NATO 
just demonstrated the fragility 
of the Western affiance at their 
meeting in . Vancouver? If 
Moscow had wanted .to rally 
its allies round its anti-Reagan 
standard, this was the time to 
doso. 

In the event, their agreed 
statements were almost concil- 
iatory. . Reference to the 
abandonment of SALT-2 was. 
muted, and the thrust of. the 
message was directed towards 
Europe rather than against the 
United States. Along with 
specific proposals for. arms 
cuts, the pact also called for 
effective verification of the 
reductions, including on-site 
inspection. r . 

TTie apparent unwillingness 
of the Warsaw Pact to- engage 
in propaganda point-scoring at 
this time was unexpected- So 
too was the cognizance the 
pact’s leaders had taken of 
Western crititisms of the first 
version of these proposals — 
outlined by the Soviet leader 
earlier this year. The absence 
of provision; for on-site 
verification was one of the 
criticisms which -the Warsaw 
Pact has .now seen- .-fit to 
address. ■ ■

churlish to note that there are

many reasons why the Warsaw: 
Pact proposals are still un- : 
satisfactory'! Not least is. the 
feet . that, all the proposed 
reductions, in , conventional 
weapons . leave the. .Warsaw 
Pact with a continuing advan- 
tage in Europe. Moreoever, 
despite the stated willingness 
of foe Eastern bloc to counte- 
nance on-site verification, an 
acceptable basis for this has yet 
to be formulated. 

But differences, even signifi- 
cant ones, over foe technicali- 
ties are no reason for not 
welcoming foe tone of the 
pact’s pronouncements. 

• Rather they offer an opportu- 
nity to examine the considr 
orations that gave rise to this 
new tone. 

One that is immediately 
apparent. from the wording of 
the propolis is the stated 
priority being given to eco- 
nomic development within the 
countries of the Warsaw Pact 
This should not be read as an 
admission of weakness on the 
part of foe Eastern bloc, still 
less as a sign foal this priority 
would not be switched at once 
if foe security of foe East bloc, 
or even foe status quo within 
it, were adjudged to be at risk. 
But the link between improved 
living standards and . reduced 
niilitery spending is now being 
articulated more frequently 
throughout tire bloc, suggest- 
ing' considerable -. domestic 
pressure for spending ratios to 
be reassessed. _ ■ 

. Another factor behind foe 
unexpected tone of last week’s 
statements from Budapest is 
doubtless Moscow's . recog- 
nition of foe damage, done to 
its reputation — and, by 
association, that of the Eastern 
bloc' as a . wholes- by foe 
reactor accident at ChemobyL 
The scale of -the 
disaster, coupled with 
Moscow’s failure to inform its

detracted from Soviet .self- 
confidence^ Wlthin the East- 
ern bloc it has undermined 
Moscow’s claims to tech-

■Whenever foe Warsaw Pact 
meets, however, a d^ree of 
caution is in evidence that 
derives from -foe differences 
between its individual mem- 
bers. In spite of Moscow’s iron 
grip, the Eastern bloc is not the , 
monolith it often appears; It is 
riven with different cultural 
traditions, competing interests 
and national security con- 
cerns. It is not just Romania's 
familiar calls for more and 
better disarmament measures 
from East and West that 
should be heeded. Romania's 
geographical position, sur- 
rounded by Warsaw Pact 
countries, makes its minor 
deviations from Moscow less 
significant than they might 
otherwise be. 

Instead, it is foe small 
signals of disaffection that 
should be noted — from Hun- 
gary (wanting to maintain its 
relatively high living standards 
rather than subsidize less ef- 
ficient economies); from East 
Germany (wanting better rela- 
tions with West Germany); 
from groups in East Germany 
and Czechoslovakia (worried 
that foe deployment of new 
Soviet missiles on their terri- 
tory might make them more 
vulnerable to nudear attack 
themselves), qnd from Poland 
(wanting to feel an integral 
part of Europe again). 

It is these often, underesti- 
mated distinctions which offer 
hope for the continuation of 
peace in Europe, hope too for 
an eventual end to foe isola- 
tion of Eastern Europe. And it 
is distinctions like these which 
also constrain the Soviet 
Union, only slightly less than 
foe United States feels itself 
constrained by its European 
allies, from projecting its na- 
tional interests and its in- 
terests as a superpower on to 
foe alliance as a whole.

should be realised that a very high 
degree of co-operation already .

. From Lord Chalfbnt 
1 Sir, Lord Rennet's persistent 
snapping at the heels of President 
Reagan (June 9) does a disservice 
to foe Social Democratic Party for 
which he speaks. 

Many of the items on his list of 
“onikneral aKance-splitters M are 
typical of the anti-American 
demonology from which the SDP 
was supposed to liberate hs 
followers; and his reference to a 
change for the better in Moscow is 
characteristic of all those gullible 
pipe-dreamers who have mistaken 
Mr Gorbachov's adroit manipula- 
tion of western opinion for a 
substantive shift in Soviet foreign 

' P °fc h er not the Soviet 
Union has violated Salt 2 is not 
the principal issue (although there 
is strong evidence that such 
violations have taken place). The 
important point is that Salt 2 is, 
and always has been, a bad treaty. 

It demanded no reductions of 
any kind in nudear stockpiles; and 
its call for limitations in launchers 
instead of warheads had the 
predictable result that the number 
of nudear weapons now in exis- 
tence is far greater than when the 
treaty was signed. 

The adjustment m Western 
Europe in new drctunstances is 
certainly, as Lord Kennet con- 
cedes, unwelcome. It is un- 
welcome because it continues a 
trend which has been evident in 
Western Europe since the Suez 
operations 30 years ago. 

Observatory’s future 

From Dr J. V. Wall 
Sir, It is invidious that Sir John 
Kingman should be allowed com- 
ment in your columns (June 7) on 
foe current debate. Sir John was 
Chairman of the Science and 
Engineering Research Council 
fSERC) until September, 1985, 
and it was under his chairmanship 
that the present bitter, fruitless 
and im a ging situation arose. 

One of his last acts as chairman 
was to set up a committee to 
examine yet again the question of 
observatory location, foe immedi- 
ately previous committees having 
found no good reasons, scientific, 
financial or social, for changing 
the status qua The report of the 
Kingman panel has been kept 
secret by the SERG 

Word mountain 

From Mr Julian Chancellor 
Sir. Many of us might sympathise 
with David Ferry’s view (June 9) 
that schemes organised by the 
European Commission are in 
danger of being dull and expen- 
sive. A European literature policy, 
however, 'would be an exception. 

The publication of. foreign, 
books' .'is the . cheapest, key to 
international understanding that I. 
can think of and M Lang's 
initiative should be taken seri- 
ously. Mr Perry’s facetious ref- 
erence to “garlic-flavoured” 
manuscripts emphasises foe need 
for an effective policy. 

It is no good relying on the “free 
market” There is no such thing 
without freedom of choice. The 
sales of foreign books are rarely 
sufficient to justify the expense of 
publishing good translations, and 
publishers' resources tend to be 
directed towards the mass market. 

Soli survey map 

From Mr £L A. Edmonds 
Sr, When the Soil Survey (reports, 
June 2-4) published its soil map of 
England and Wales at 1:1,000,000 
in 1975, its own detailed maps 
covered only 20 per cent of the 
area. The remainder was based in 
small pan on relief maps but 
drawn mainly by extrapolation 
from maps of foe British Geologi- 
cal Survey. 

Both surveys publish at 
1:50,000, make use of foe other’s 
results and are under political 
pressure to sell their wares in the 
market place. Neither has any 
prospect of paying its way, and 
each directorate knows it 
Such income as may be earned 
wiD come almost entirely from the 
public money spent by Govern- 
ment departments, local authori- 

Capital warships 

From Captain R. H. Norman, RN 
Sir, Perhaps Lieutenant-Colonel 
Wythe (June 7) would like to 
explain how the Falkland Islands 
might have been recovered with- 
out foe surface “capital” warship! 
The fact is that without foe 
handful of heavy warships avail- 
able on the day. Mis Thatcher and 
her Government would have had 
no options at all for foe recovery 
of the islands, which would now 
be part of Argentina. 

Of course ships are vulnerable 
(so are soldiers, tanks and aert> 
planes— Argentina lost most of its 
air force in 1982). Bui there are 
certain tasks which can only be 

Ordination of women 

From die Bishop ofSouthwarkand 
others 

Sir, In your leading article of June 
2 (“Can doctrine develop?”) you 
rightly point to the contrast be- 
tween the Anglican view of “dis- 
persed authority" (grounded in 
scripture) and “Roman Ultra- 
montane centralism." But within 
foal contrast there is another 
distinction to be made. 

Anglicans count themselves 
members of the Church Catholic, 
and do not wish for or claim the 1 
authority to tamper with what 
they see as fundamental defi- 
nitions of that faith in broad 
terms: the supremacy of scripture, 
foe historic creeds, foe sacraments 
of baptism and holy communion, 
the historic force-fold ministry of 
bishop, priest (presbyter) and 
deacon. 

They do daim however the 
authority to deal with “second 
order” questions, and to use their 


It is characterized by a failure to 
understand the uses of military 
power in the pursuit of effective 
foreign policies; a tendency to 
regard arms control agreements as 
a^desirabie end in themselves, 
irrespective of whether or not they 
increase security, and a readiness 
to make unilateral concessions in 
pursuit of such agreements. 

It is from these dangerous 
illusions that Dr David Owen is 
courageously attempting to rescue 
the SDP and its uneasy alliance 
with foe Liberal Party. 

What is now needed is not 
endless waiting about foe im- 
minent demise of a piece of useless 
“arms control"; it is foe negotia- 
tion of a serious, verifiable treaty 
which will bring about substantial 
cuts in foe numbers of nuclear 
warheads. 

If President Reagan's readiness 
to “break out” of Salt 2 (a treaty 
which, it is worth recording, was 
never ratified by the United States 
and in any case was not intended 
to remain in force until December 
1985) leads to a real agreement on 
strategic arms reductions based 
upon intelligent calculations of 
mutual security, foe “mindless 
flight of foe hawks” to which Lord 
Kennel colourfully refers, which 
wiD have been proved to be as 
unimportant as the confused 
fluttering of the doves.

Your readers are entitled to 
know whether Sir John is speaking 
for himself or his panel. If the 
latter, his comments do not 
appear to reflea the conclusions of 
the report as they have appeared 
in the press; if foe former, it is not 
dear to rae^ why he has changed his 
mind. 

In either case public comment 
paralleling a confidential report at 
a time when the matter is sub 
judice represents an abuse of 
privilege. 

Besides, Sir John's arguments 
are all wrong, and UK astrono- 
mers know it.

There is nothing wrong with 
that, except that those who would 
buy foreign books may not have 
the opportunity to do so. It would 
take a minuscule proportion of foe 
European Commission's re- 
sources to remedy this situation 
by subsidising, the publication., of 
translations. 

The UK does virtually nothing 
to encourage foe availability of 
foreign literature, and we are in 
the embarrassing position in 
which the three annual prizes for 
excellent translations are paid for 
by the French, foe Gomans and 
foe Italians. Let us therefore 
support the commission's pro- 
posals with enthusiasm, rather 
than sneer at them with insular 
cynicism.

There is no co-ordination of foe 
two mapping programmes. 

Sir, this is absurd; better and 
cheaper to bring the two 
organisations together, possibly 
within the Ordnance Survey, 
which prims the maps, withdraw 
both from the market place and 
run them strictly as surveys shorn 
of the research and commercial 
frills that better adorn university 
and industry. 

Maps produced by touting for 
customers' questions and piecing 
together the answers compare 
unfavourably with the results of 
systematic survey and constitute 
an insecure foundation for land- 
use planning.

answer is to provide them with 
proper weapons and sensors, 
which requires size and 
sophistication. 

If the Royal Navy had an 
equipment problem in foe South 
Atlantic, it was inadequate or 
unsuitable weapons and- not 
enough surface ships — largely a 
reflection of inadequate resources 
in earlier years. Incidentally, only 
one warship, a destroyer, was lost

synods as a final place of decision 
fora resolution of such issues. The 
issue before us at foe present time 
is in fan about the status of the 
qeustion about women as priests: 
is it a first order question or a 
second? 

Professor John MacQuanie, for 
instance, told foe assembled bish- 
ops at foe Lambeth Conference in 
1978 that he believed it to be a 
second order question. Few 
theologians dissent from this, and 
that includes many in foe Roman 
Catholic Church. 

“Ordaining” women as preists 
does not contradict foe creeds or 
change foe force-fold order of 
ministry. There are passages in 
scripture which point towards it as 
well as some which point against. 

It is therefore a question which 
autonomous churches may decide 
for themselves, as at least five 
churches of foe Anglican commu- 
nion have already decided to do. 

It would appear that the Bishop 


Matching the 
men to the jobs 

From the Reverend J. R. Giles 
Sir, If ever there was a tear-jerker 
on television it was the June 2 
Panorama on unemployment in 
Cleveland, with foe shot of Mum 
and children waiting on Middles- 
brough station platform for Dad 
to arrive back from his job as a 
brick-layer in foe prosperous 
South. 

When he eventually arrived the 
18 month-okl younger child failed 
to recognise his father after an 
absence of four weeks. This is foe 
price being paid even by those 
who have “got on their bikes”. 

Then today's Times (June 10) 
follows with your Industrial 
Correspondent's report on foe 
shortage of skilled staff m foe 
Southeast. Two weeks ago I was 
hearing foe same story from an 
engineer in BrisioL Yet up here in 
foe North thousands of skilled 
men and their families are trapped 
by the practical impossibility 
without help of moving to where 
foe jobs aaually are. and by foe 
shortage and cost of houses to live 
in. 

Yet here are real jobs, which will 
bring hope to real people. For 
heaven's sake, cannot foe Govern- 
ment match this supply to this 
demand, where such a small 
investment (help towards bridging 
the differentials in house prices, 
subsidies for moving) could yield 
such colossal human, family and 
social benefits? 

And it would be much cheaper 
than keeping people for ever on 
foe dole.

Sex education 

from Lord Buckmaster 
Sir, I am grateful for foe coverage 
in your columns of the Govern- 
ment amendment I moved to the 
Education Bill on sex education in 
schools, based on mine. 

The prevailing ethos in this 
country seems to be far more 
permissive than most parents 
would wish; and it has been foe 
concern of such parents, whose 
complaints to head teachers have 
aD too often proved unavailing, 
that has impelled me to pursue 
this difficult and delicate matter. 

One important aspect of their 
complaints not mentioned in your 
columns is foe all too frequent 
coupling of sex education with foe 
provision of contraception, in the 
mistaken belief that the wider 
availability of contraceptives re- 
duces unwanted teenage preg- 
nancies. In- fact, it would seem to 
encourage experimentation. 


. Furthermore, a young girl 
makes a poor candidate for the 
regular, daily adminstration of the 
PilL, which incidentally, causes 
150 different hormone changes in 
her body. 

During the decade up to 1984 
the number of illegitimate births 
to girls under 20 increased by 
almost 60 per cent — and this at a 
time when organisations like the 
Brook Advisory Clinics and the 
Fhmily Planning Association were 
peddling foe HU as never before, 
with substantial support from 
public funds. 

The Medical Education Trust is 
now studying in depth foe possible 
harmful medical and psychologi- 
cal effects of early sexual activity. 
The connection between such 
activity and cancer of foe cervix in 
foe young, now generally ac- 
cepted, is only one aspect of their 
findings. 

All this surely points to foe 
urgent need for a greater emphasis 
on self-restraint in the teaching of 
this subject

Your June 3 editorial points out

of London and other members of

ALCO CK'S S TORY. 

TERRIBLE JOURNEY IN 
FOG AND ICE. 

Captain Akock’s story of hia 
flight is as follows: - 
“We have had a terrible journey. 
The wonder is we are here at all. 
We scarcely saw the sun or the 
moon or the stars. For hours we 
saw none of them. The fog was very' 
dense, and at times we had to 
descend to within 360ft of the sea. 
For lour hours the machine was 
covered in a sheet of ice carried by 
frozen sleet; at another time the fog 
was so dense that my speed 
indicator did not work, and for a 
few seconds it wag very alarming. 

“We looped the loop, I do 
believe, and did a very steep spiral. 
We did some very comic ‘stunts’, 
for I have no sense of horizon. 

“The winds were favourable all 
the way, north-west, and at times 
south-west. We said in Newfound- 
land we would do the trip in 16 
horns, but we never thought we 
should An hour and a half before 
we saw land we had no certain idea' 
where we were, but we believed we 
were at Galway or thereabouts. Our 
delight in seeing Easter Island and 
Turbot Island (five miles west of 
Clifden) was great. People did not 
know who we were when we landed, 
and thought we were scouts looking 
for Alcock. 

“We encountered no unforseen 
conditions. We did not suffer from 
cold or exhaustion except when 
looking over the side, then the sleet 
chewed bits, out of our faces- We 
drank . coffee and ale and ate 
sandwiches and chocolate. 

“The flight has shown that the 
Atlantic flight impracticable, but I 
think it should be done not with an 
aeroplane or seaplane, but with a 
flying boat. We had plenty of 
reserve fuel left, using only two- 
thirds of our supply. The only 
thing that upset me was to see the 
machine at the end get damaged. 
From above the bog looked like a 
lovely field, but the machine sank 
into it up to the axle and fell over 
on to her nose." 

A WIRELESS ACCIDENT. 
(FROM OUR OWN 
CORRESPONDENT) 

CLIFDEN. June 15 ' 
Captain Alcock said that it had 
been a very trying journey, with 
bad visibility, fog and rain. They 
heard no wireless messages on the 
route owing to the constant jam- 
ming of signals not intended for 
him. His wireless propeller for 
transmitting messages was blown 
off five minutes after leaving St. 
Johns. He saw the sun out once 
after attaining 11.000 feet. Only . 
three bearings were possible owing 
to foe bad weather. “I didn't know 
once during the night whether I 
was upside down or not. The fog ; 
was awful. Later I bad a very 
narrow escape. I found myself 
within 10ft of the sea. It put the ' 
wind up us.” 

The engine ran well. One ex- 
haust pipe blew off and made the : 
pilot very deaf. “This weather,” 
said Captain Alcock, “is too bad for 
us to proceed to London. 1 have - 
nursed my engines all the way, and. ' 
have one third of my petrol left”. ; - 
On landing Lieutenant Brown! . 
said to Captain Alcock: “What do 
you think of that for fancy

reply, and they both shook hands.

The importance of exploration in 
religion has been upheld by the Bishop 
of Durham, the Right Rev David 
Jenkins, in the course of the argument 
over his right to reinterpret some basic 
doctrines of Christianity. In principle at 
least, the rest of the bishops of the 
Church of England have supported his 
right to be an explorer, while setting 
down a sort of code of conduct for the 
way it should be handled. In a free 
society the right to ask questions is a 
difficult one to challenge, and in a 
sceptical society there is a kind of 
cultural respectability in having doubts. 
When most people are not sure, there is 
suspicion of those who are. 


point of defence is over the legitimacy of 
honest searching. 


Otherwise the Bishop got the worst of 
the argument: he may be tolerated as an 
explorer, bnt the firm line has been laid 
down that he is in dangerous territory. 
Nevertheless the mildly liberal theologi- 
cal line he has been pursuing is 
transparently motivated by a desire to 
make Christianity more believable, and 
more intellectually acceptable, and 
therefore more likely to command 
serious attention and deeper consent 
The Bishop of Durham always presents 
his critical remarks with a demand that 
people should take Christian faith more 
seriously. This is a case for liberal 
theology that has not yet been properly 
heard. 


The relationship of doubt to faith is 
more difficult than the simple contrast 
between certainty and agnosticism. Only 
some farms of faith and some forms of 
donbt are mutually exclusive alterna- 
tives. The literatnre of Christianity is 
full of doubt of a more subtle kind, co- 
existing with, inspired by, and even 
inspiring, faith itself. It is doubt directed 
not at the existence of objective religions 
reality, but at the impossibility of 
describing it or reducing it to the 
patterns of human experience. This 
creative doubt is the sort that asks 
questions of which the answers are 
elusive. 


It is. essentially, that the traditional 
doctrinal proposition that the Church 
has inherited comes from thought-forms 
and philosophical approaches which are 
so alien to the way modern western 
minds work that they can only be 
accepted unthinkingly. Profound con- 
sent and real internalization, which a 
deeper appreciation of the life of faith 
requires, are difficult, if not impossible, 
if ideas are not presented in a more 
familiar modern package. This is the 
first and bask defence of what liberal 
theology is trying to do. The second 


As a purely intellectual process, 
religious exploration and doubt can take 
on a reductionist character it becomes 
limited to the asking of awkward 
questions about historical facts; or the 
insistence that paradoxes such as the 
Incarnation must be resolved in the 
name of fashionable rational tidiness. 
The key to the relationship of doubt to 
faith must lie elsewhere, for faith cannot 
survive if the limits of human compre- 
hension are made the limits of what is 
true. The claim made by religion is that 
understanding is possible of only part of 
the truth, while the greater part lies 
beyond. Doubt is therefore an attitude of 
inquiry towards the greater part, and 
recognition that any understanding of 
the area within human grasp is heavily 
compromised by what remains bidden. 
To that extent, therefore, doubt is an 
essential element in the religious mind. 

As a minority culture, Christianity in 
Britain now suffers from having to co- 
exist with a prevailing atmosphere of 
religious scepticism of the most negative 
and uncreative kind, which refuses to 
pant the seriousness of religions ques- 
tions at all. Thus Christianity is in 
danger of having its content described by 


those who do not accept or understand iL 
It is. for instance, obliged to believe in 
the God that atheists do not believe in, 
rather than a Cod of its own, beyond the 
comprehension of atheism; and agnos- 
tics are scandalized that a Bishop of the 
Church of England should not uphold a 
simplistic belief in miracles. 

Atheism and agnosticism are, howev- 
er, only two of many possible forms of 
religous doubt The mystic and the 
contemplative also bare mysteries to 
question. The garden maze, such as the 
one at Hampton Court, has sometimes 
been used as a religious metaphor, for it 
teaches the lesson that one s t a ndin g at 
the entrance may yet be nearer to fefiag 
the centre titan one who has penetrated 
far into H. At the entrance the puzzle is 
as yet unmeasured and unexperienced. 
For the explorer who is deep inside, and 
lost, doubts will be more intense and 
disconcerting. Doubts are not intellectu- 
al indulgences, in such a case, bnt dark 
nights of the son). They are a mark not 
of infidelity bnt of refigoas seriousness. 

It would be a poor outcome to the 
“Durham controversy' 1 therefore, if the 
Church of England were to turn its back 
on genuine questioning and condemn all 
donbt as apostasy. This is not what the 
bishops have said, but it is the way that 
opinion in the Church seems to be 
drifting. It would mean that the vivifying 
concept of mystery has been replaced by 
arid certainty. The pity is, perhaps, that 
the kinds of doubt made notorious in the 
Durham case are not, as doubts go, 
particularly iuteresting ones. There is no 
great fascinating tension between the 
“empty tomb" idea or souk other 
version of events, particularly as the 
Bishop of Durham manifestly does not 
try to build upon his unempty tomb any 
profound construction with fresh insight 
into the meaning of it alL He believes in 
the Resurrection; bnt presents it in a way- 
designed to make it look less unlikely, 
not more.

OBITUARY 

ALAN JAY LERNER 

Lyricist of ‘My Fair Lady’ 


AJan Jay Lerner, the play- 
wright and lyricist, who was 
responsible for such notable 
musicals as My Fair Lady and 
Camelot, died in New York on 
June 14, aged 67. 

He wrote many of bis best 
works with Frederick Loewe, 
the composer, and the names 
Lerner and Loewe became 
bywords for ail that was best 
on the musical stage. Their 
first venture. The Day Before 
Spring, was followed by 
Brigadoon. in 1947 and four 
years later by Paint Your 
Wagon. 

But it was in 1 956. when My 
Fair Lady opened on the New 
York stage, that their reputa- 
tion was assured. Both in 
London and New York, My 
Fair Lady set records for the 
longest running musical: in 
New York there were more 
than 2,700 performances. 

Lerner loved Britain and he 
dipped unashamedly into its 
history to provide him with 
material for his shows: Scot- 
land was the setting for 
Brigadoon, the legend of King 
Arthur bred romantic Came - 



A 


into a memorable film in 
1964 The show returned to 
in 1976 and was 


with moderate success, in the 
stage musical. The Day Before 
Spring . a work of much grace 
and charm which never quite 
caught on during its first run 
on Broadway. The collabora- 
tors achieved major successes 
with Brigadoon, a whimsical 
fantasy about a ghostly High- 
land village and two Ameri- 
cans who stumble on it; and 
Paint Your Wagon, an extro- 
vert open-air musicaL 
Meanwhile Lerner was 
drawn to Hollywood and 


lot and Shaw’s story of Pygma- signed a contract with MGM, 
lion provided the rich tapestry at that lime the leading mak- 


of class-conscious England 
that Rex Harrison and Julie 
Andrews portrayed so unfor- 
gettably in My Fair Lady. Six 
years ago he made his home in 
London. 

Bom in New York City on 
August 31, 1918, Lerner was 
educated at Bedales, the En- 
glish public school, and in 
America before taking a de- 
gree at Harvard. 

An enthusiastic interest in 
writing and drama during 
university days led him subse- 
quently into journalism, and 
then, in 1940, into script 
writing for radio. 

His collaboration with 
Loewe was instituted in 1942, 


ers of film musicals, working 
first on the Fred Astaire film . 
Wedding Bells, then on the 
award-winning American in 
Paris . for which he incorporat- 
ed a number of Gershwin's 
most famous songs in the 
original screenplay. 

Reluming to Broadway and 
his collaboration with Loewe, 
he transformed Pygmalion 
into a musical which left 
passionate Shavians with feel- 
ings not too outraged. 

My Fair Lady was produced 
in more than 20 countries and 
collected numerous awards. 
Columbia Records sold more 
than five million copies of the 
cast album and it was made 


Broadway 
again a success. 

After this Lerner and Loewe 
turned their attention to Co- 
lette, writing and composing 
Gigi as an original screen 
musical, winning Oscars for 
best screenplay and best song. 
In 1960 Camelot was pro- 
duced. with Lerner again writ- 
ing the book and lyrics and 
Loewe the music. .As with My 
Fair Lady, Julie Andrews 
starred and Moss Hart 
directed. . . 

Differences of opinion and 
Loewe’s poor health began to 
take their toll and in 1962, 
after 19 vearsof collaboration, 
Lerner and Loewe split up. 

Three years later. Lerner 
won a “Grammy" award for 
his work with Burton Lane on 
the title song of On a Clear 
Day You Can See Forever. He 
collaborated on three more 
musicals. Coco (with Andre 
Previn in 1969), 1600 Pennsy l- 
vania Avenue (with Leonard 
Bernstein in 1976) and 
Carmelina (again with Lane, 
in 1979. 

. Lemer's Last musical. Dance 
a Little Closer, was a failure 
and dosed after only one night 
in 1983. 

Despite this setback, he was 
acknowledged as one of the 
few American lyric-writers of 
the grand tradition, which 
combined popular appeal with 
a conviction that audiences 
would welcome wit. 
intelligence and ingenuity in 
the popular song. Since the 
death of Oscar Hammerstein 
I960, his position as 


tn 


America's leading lyric writer 
was virtually unchallenged. 

He was married eight times 
- seven of the marriages ended 
in divorce - and he is survived 
by Liz Robertson, the actress.

Jorge Luis Borges, the cele- 
brated Argentine writer, died 
on June 14 in Geneva. He was 
86. A master of parable and 
parody, he stood as a unique 
figure in world literature. 

Borges was born in 1899 in 
Buenos Aires. An English 
grandmother ensured that he 
was brought up bilingual and 
from the precocious age of six 
he began writing. 

He literally grew up among 
English books in his father's 
library, a sign of his intense 
and devoted bookishness. His 
father's failing eyesight (inher- 
ited by Borges himself later) 
took the family to Europe in 
1914 for a cure. 

Both parents were crucial to 
Borees' later life as a writer, 
his rather, a novelist, anarchist 
and teacher whose unfulfilled 
writer's ambitions Borges 
quite consciously assumed, 
while his mother accompa- 
nied, protected and aided 
Borges until her death at the 
age of 99 in 1975. 

Borges returned to Buenos 
Aires in 1921 after participat- 
ing in the tepid Spanish poetic- 
avant-guard called ullraismo, 
like I m agism based on extrav- 
agant metaphors and where 
Borges first made a name for 
himself as a poet- Back home 
in Buenos Aires he initiated 
his contemporaries into the 
new poetry, collaborating in 
magazines and literary gather- 
ings, but he soon repudiated 
these “timid extravaganzas". 

Yet from his earliest pub- 
lished collection of poems. 
Fervor de Buenos Aires ( 1 923). 
through CuademoSan Martin 
(1929). El hacedor (I960), 
Elogio de la sombra ( 1 969) up 
to El oro de los tigres (1972) 
and La cifra ( 198 1 ) - to name 
some - it was as a poet that 
Borges esteemed himself. 

However, Borges' astonish- 
ing reputation rests dearly, if 
slightly mistakenly, on his 
small output of short fictions. 

It was through these “fictions" 
that Borges transcended his 
language and culture, much to 
bis own surprise. 

According to Borges himself 
these modest subversive ex- 
periments emerged after a 
near fatal accident in 1938 (the 


same year as his father's 
death) to become the Borges 
canon: Ficciones (1944; 
Fictions, 1962); El Aleph 
(1949); The Aleph and Other 
Stories, 1970, also partly in 
Labyrinths (edited by D. 
Yates and J. Irby, 1964) and 
less convindngly the later El 
informe de Broaie ( 1 970; Doc- 
tor Brodies Report, 1971), and 
El libro de arena (1975; The 
Book of Sand, 1977). 

It was the Forme n tor Prize 
of 1961 (shared with Samuel 
Beckett) that brought Borges 
cult admiration, both in Ar- 
gentina and abroad. 

There are many Borgeses 
(poet, story-teller, essayist, 
parodist, prologuist, 
translated, as Borges himsdf 
wryly noted in “Borges and F, 
and this is a good measure of 
his elusory appeal. 

The Borges certain to last as 
a minor classic of the twenti- 
eth century is the poet who, 
turning to prose, created cun- 
ning mystifications and arti- 
fices in terse prose that vied 
with brain-teasing riddles and 
that bafflingly and allusively 
elaborated his lifelong 
concerns. 

But more than a clever 
constructor of elegant con- 
ceits, Borges’ work can be 
identified by the underlying 
tones, of melancholia and 
humiliation. 

Borges’ best “fictions” can 
be read as deeply ironic, even 
pessimistic parables of our 
times. Their modernity is in 
line with Kafka (to whom 
Borges devoted some of his 
most acute and succinct criti- 
cal notes) in that they assert 
both the almost self-indulgent 
pleasures and the grim neces- 
sities of fantasy (that is an) in 
a brutalising empirical worid. 

In Spanish, Borges was an 
acknowledged master of style; 
his verbal rigour, his refusal of 
ostentation, his skilful 
anglicising of his mother 
tongue, indeed his intense 
consciousness of language it- 
self (its tautological status) 
have indebted later writers. 
There is a clear post-Borges 
mode of writing, evident in 
Anglo-American fiction as 
well. 


Borges' life from the 1940s 
onwards was not eventful; he 
worked as a librarian, review- 
er and professor and remained 
in his beloved Buenos Aires. 
After Perdn’s rise to power 
(1944) Borges became vocal 
politically and was demoted 
from librarian to inspector of 
poultry, but with Peron's fell 
(1955) Borges was nominated 
Director of the National 
Library. 

That same year Borges' 
eyesight failed and he became 
almost totally blind. During 
these years of blindness he 
continued teaching and writ- 
ing poems and the occasional 
story, working with mental 
drafts. 

Afteriris mother's death, he 
was aided by loyal secretaries, 
translators, friends and read- 
ers. 

Borges has been honoured 
with many notable prizes 
(Formentor, Cervantes, Jeru- 
salem, Cino del Duca) but^ 
notoriously not the Nobel; he* 
lectured in the United Slates 
and Europe and received sev- 
eral honorary degrees (Oxford, 
Columbia, Michigan). 

Borges had always been an 
avid and provocative conver- 
sationalist whose every opin- 
ion (Torn the funny to the 
profound has been recorded 
and published. His memory 
and love for literature were 
truly astonishing. 

He will also surprisingly be 
remembered as the champion 
of neglected British writers 
like Stevenson, Hudson, Ches- 
terton and Kipling, as well as a 
shrewd reader and exploiter of 
the eleventh edition of the 
Encyclopaedia Britannica. 

Borges helped to revive a 
particular way of reading;, a 
suspicious distancing that at 
first seemed unfashionable ^ 
and dilettante where his own 
writing became his way of 
reading other writers and 
where a reading of Borges is a 
re-writing of his reading. . 

He was married, first in 
1967, to Elsa Millan (they 
were legally separated three 
years later) and in April of this 
year he married Maria 
Kodama, his secretary and 
student. 


BENNY GOODMAN 


Benny Goodman, the 
American bandleader and 
clarinettist, who died on June 
13. had been known since the 
mid- 1930s as “The King of 
Swing.” 

His was the music which 
ushered in the “Swing Era” of 
the big bands in 1935. and his 
was the most popular of the 
genuinely jazz-oased large 
formations. 

Although he did not lead a 
permanent orchestra after 
1950 and had been in semi- 
retirement since the early 
1960s, his later appearances 
continued to demonstrate the 
gifts of taste and technique 
which made him for many 
years pre-eminent among jazz 
clarinettists in the popular 
imagination. 

.Among his many achieve- 
ments was the proof that jazz 
and classical music need not 
be mutually exclusive forms. 
He recorded with the Buda- 
pest String Quartet in 1939. 
and was an adept interpreter 
of the works of such compos- 
ers as Banok. Copland and 
Hindemith, from each of 
whom he commissioned 
pieces. 

Born Benjamin David 
Goodman on May 30, 1909, in 
Chicago. Illinois, he was one 
of a large, impecunious fam- 
ily. By the age of 10 he was 
taking clarinet lessons, and 
two years later appeared for 


the first time on a vaudeville 
stage in his home town. 

It was in his mid-teens that 
the Chicago drummer and 
bandleader, Beii Pollack, sent 
for him. and Goodman joined 
the band for an engagement at 
the Venice Ballroom in Los 
Angeles. His first recording, in 
1926; was with Pollack, and 
shortly afterwards he made his 
recording debut as a leader. 

In 1934, he organized his 
first band, regularly featured 
on a New York radio show, 
and the following year he took 
the ensemble on tour. across 
America. When they reached 
Los Angeles, they were greeted 
with a wild and spontaneous 
acclaim which set the tone for 
the next decade. 

This was the beginning of 
the Swing fad, also to elevate 
such of bis contemporaries as 
Artie Shaw, Glenn Miller and 
the Dorsey brothers, and to 
spawn such dance crazes as 
the Lindy Hop and the Jitter- 
bug among the newly-identi- 
fied group of young people 
known as bobbysoxers. 

The success of Goodman’s 
band owed much to the quali- 
ty of its arrangements, many 
of which he had purchased 
form the black composer and 
bandleader Fletcher Hender- 
son. Racial prejudice prevem- 


white formation playing the 
same music met no such 
problems. - • 

In 1935, Goodman also 
began recording a series of 
small-group works, ranging 
from a trio to a septet, which 
earned greater admiration 
among jazz fans than his big- 
band efforts. 

These classic records fea- 
tured the black pianist Teddy 
Wilson, whom Goodman also 
hired for the big band, thus 
becoming the first major white 
bandleader to incorporate- a 
black musician into a travel- 
ling orchestra. It was both- a 
courageous and a momentous 
action, carried out with the 
encouragement of his friend 
and record producer John 4 
Hammond, whose sister, Al- 
ice Duckworth, Goodman 
married in 1941. 

The huge demand for 
Uood man’s big band lasted 
until 1950. when general fi- 
nancial imperatives began to 
draw the shades on an era. He 
dissolved the ensemble, con- 
centrating instead on small 
groups, and was never to lead *■ 
a permanent orchestra again. 

in 1955, however, he reas- 
sembled a band to make a film 
entitled The Benny Goodman 
fjgy- and in the spring .of 
i yoz he made an unprecedent- 


ed the acceptance of ed tour of the Soviet Union 
Henderson's own band on a receiving ovations 
mass scale, but Goodman's everywhere^

the doorstep, but,- in the words of 
one manager, “ft. may be difficult 
to sack someone, once they’re in 
your show — but it’s easy never to 
employ them again”. 


agrees to understudy may take on a 
maximum of two roles in return for 
the minimum pay. For an increase 
in pay, the actor is at liberty to take 
on as many roles as he or she may 
wish. During the recent run of 
Figaro at the Ambassadors, it was 
only when someone fell ill that 
Equity discovered no understudy 
at aH was being employed. In 
another West End production, a 
show- which was managing with 
one understudy (the minimum 
requirement), two members of the 
cast fell ill .and disaster was only 
averted when the wardrobe-mis- 
tress appeared on stage, reading 
from a.scripL 


production, as shown on the 
contract: a kind of guarantee 
against loss. This, if it were strictly 
con trolled, could prevent cancella- 
tions. With a production called 
Happy Event , starring Martin Jar- 
vis and Susan Penhaligon, the 
producers offered the show to the 
Birmingham Alexandra and the 
Theatre Royal, Norwich, where 
both theatre directors agreed to 
take it, doubtless on the strength of 
the two television “names” in the 
cast. The performances were adver- 
tised but foiled to appear — 
although at Norwich a gala perfor- 
mance had already sold out. Yet 
neither theatre boss is in a position 
to take legal action, because con- 
iractsjbr the show had not been

Another practice is to suggest to 
Ihe agent that his or her client 
should accept a weekly wage below 
the Equity minimum. If the agents 


Equally unenforceable is the 
ruling that any management must 
have cash reserves to cover all the 
“contra” (salaries, bills and run- 
ning costs) for the full length of the 


This, amazingly, is hardly un- 
usual. Rehearsals — and. quite 
often m both theatre and film, full- 
scale performances — are frequent- 
ly well under way before any 
contracts are issued for actors to 
sign. Ken Myers, an American 
backer, made headlines in The 
Stage for six weeks with allegations 
of leaving behind him a string of 
shows for which the accounts were 
empty when it came to paying the 
bills: most recently in this country 
at the Mermaid during, the run of 
Down an Alley Filled With Cats, 
starring Adam Faith. Only when 
the Mermaid’s Sally Price threat- 
ened to distrain on the sets did 
Myers’s British co-producers pay 
up the required £17,500 to keep 
their good name. 


Duncan Weldon is chairman and 
managing director of Triumph 
Apollo, a company which must be 
ranked as the most powerful and 
productive (if not the most cre- 
ative) of theatre managements in 
Britain — responsible for the mixed 
blessing of stars illuminating the 
HaymarkeL He has an arrange- 
ment with that theatre (which he 
partly owns), and had in the past 
with the Duke of York’s, that as 
long as he has another production 
in the wings — waiting to occupy 
the stage when it becomes available 
— his firm has an option on the 
theatre. The reason is that the most 
expensive liability for any theatre- 
owner is to have to pay running 
costs while the building is “dark” 
or unoccupied. 

This may in part explain why, 
two years ago, it was Triumph 
Apollo's habit to have as many as 


1 7 productions on the go around 
the country: whichever proved to 
be the biggest hit would move into 
the West End when the current 
show had run its course — rather 
like slacking planes at Heathrow 
and waiting for landing per- 
mission. 

Robert Selbie. who is in charge of 
contracts at Triumph Apollo, ad- 
mits that the carrot trick might be 
used to get good actors in the 
secondary roles: “After all. the 
bigger the star, the more likely a 
West End transfer after the prov- 
inces. If a pre-Wesi End tour is 
longer than eight weeks, we issue a 
provincial contract. Otherwise the 
total guaranteed work on the 
contract is six weeks, to include the 
rehearsaL So. in that case. yes. we 
could give notice to the company 
after Just two weeks on the road. 
But any sensible management 


would use their best endeavours to 
bring a show into the West End. if a 
theatre was available.” 

It is. of course, a buyer's market, 
and always has been. With 80 or 90 
percent continued unemployment, 
nobody - least of all the actors' 
union — is going to say you cannot 
negotiate down. Since much of the 
business is done freemason- fash- 
ion. with a nod and a wink and a 
“by mutual agreement” clause, the 
chances of policing every third-rate 
provincial management's contrac- 
tual chicanery are negligible. An 
actor who tries to discuss his 
contract might as well be a tom-cat 
engaging in debate with the ven the 
items in question will already be 
firmly in his grasp, the outcome is 
inevitable, just as painful, just as 
damaging to his self-esteem — and. 
to all intents and purposes, is 
irreversible.

virtuosity is not just a matter 
of steps but of style too. If one 
wanted to be pernickety, it 
could be mentioned that once 
or twice in this performance 
Tucker tended to poke her 
bead forward a little, giving a 
slightly ungainly finish to her 
otherwise good line. That

superbly well suited.

There may be other British-

deliver a weight of tone and 
intensity of expression compa- 
rable to the Bochmann Quar-

dangerously close to a crudity 
which never seems to threaten 
this remarkable group. They 
also have the ability to play 
consistently in tune, to an 
extent whidt makes you fotget 
just how cruelly demanding 
the string-quartet medium is 
in this way. 

.All of which paid magnifi-

there is nothing amorphous in 
Schumann's chamber-music

short pieces heard since has 
raised doubts about whether 
Pan has either the range or the 
technical expertise to sustain 
an international reputation. 

Not quite everything per- 
formed so conscientiously by 
the Hilliard Ensemble and the 
instrumental group Chame-

jolly little Cantate Domino

verve, and its sharp- timbred 
scoring recalled Stravinsky. 
But elsewhere, with, mind and 
ears trapped inside one of 
Part’s repetitive contempla- 
tions of eternity, one could 
only brood on the patchy 
quality of his basic thematic 
inspirations. Spiegel im Spie- 
gel was a violin and piano 
work of such staggering banal- 
ity — a half-speed imitation of 
the Bach/Gounod Ave Maria 
without the jokes — that it 
must have been embarrassing 
to both players involved.

Opera 

L’incoronazione di 

Poppea 

Glyndeboume 


Peter Hairs 1984 production 
returns with its rosy, appeal- 
ing view of I st-century 
Rome's amoral tusslings. In a 
warmly-lit courtyard furni- 
shed with plants, fountains 
and cushions the mortals play 
out the courtesan's triumph 
with subtlety and restraint. 
The device of retaining the 
deities throughout, to watch 
the advance or decline of their 
favourites from balconies, 
adds to the feeling of classical 
drama. 

There are typically inven- 
tive touches. Pbppea's bath in 
milk, done with sly peekaboo 
wit, certainly helps to flesh out 
the ambitious lady's character, 
and Nero's celebration of 
Seneca's death is turned into a 
jnacho drinking contest of 
knockabout farcical quality: 
just the thing to tickle the 
post-prandial fancy of the 
Glyndeboume patrons. 

But generally the principals 
perform unimpeded by com- 
plicated stage manoeuvres. 
Some take more advantage of 
this freedom than others; as in 
1984, Maria Ewing takes most 
advantage of all. One might 
imagine that a woman who 
rose to rule an empire through 
capilivating its emperor 
would display at least a token 
degree of external charm, but 
this Poppea was self-centred. 



Taking liberties: Neil Wilson, Maria Ewing 


petulant and unsmiling from 
beginning to end. The voice 
was consistent with the char- 
acterization: bending Monte- 
verdi's exquisite chromatic 
lines into unstylish giissandi. 
injecting out-of-scale dynam- 
ics and (when requesting 
Seneca's execution) one ex- 
travagant chest-voice growL. 
and only finding a truly 
beautiful legato in the final 
duet. 

The American tenor Neil 
Wilson, making his British 
debut as Nero, impressed with 
a suitably sneering demeanour 
and a tough-toned projection 
that could melt pleasingly 
where necessary. He tended to 
stray below pitch, but other- 
wise this was a well executed 
portrayal. Another .American. 
Cynthia Garey. returned to 
the role of the forsaken 
Ouavia with a model demon- 
stration of Monteverdi 
singing. 

Rebecca Caine's pen Amor. 


the most noticeable of the 
deities, was all the more 
commendable for being deliv- 
ered so securely while she was 
suspended on a high wire. 
Dale Duesing did well to make 
something mellifluous and oc- 
casionally moving of the inef- 
feciual Or lone, and Roderick 
Kennedy's towering Senera 
managed a noble death with- 
out quite mustering ideal 
weight for the philosopher’s 
deepest thoughts. 

Raymond Leppard's con- 
troversially sensuous 1 962 
edition has undergone refur- 
bishing according 10 the taste 
of the present conductor, 
Richard Bradshaw-, who paced 
the music intelligently despite 
some casual tempo pick-ups. 
The main change seems 10 be 
that a mighty battery of 14 
coniinuo players is now en- 
couraged 10 embellish freely

1985 Stabat Mater for string

mental interludes double in 
speed each time - possibly 
reflecting the text's increasing 
anguish — and, although 
progress is largely by Part's 
now familiar chains of two- 
part counterpoint, the points 
where all the performers come 
together in long, descending 
laments make a profound 
impact

In the six years of its existence, 
the worthy aim of the Black 
Theatre Cooperative has been 
to encourage black artists and 
(a taller order, this) black 
audiences. Sad to relate, their 
current production seems un- 
likely to’ win them many 
artistic laurels; while when I 
saw a a section of the audience 
handsomely undercut the low- 
est standards of behaviour I 
had previously witnessed in 
any theatre. 

It is a novel experience for a 
critic to be sworn at before his 
notice appears and when an 
entire row of young “audi- 
tors” declines 10 keep quiet 
during the performance, it is 
time to question the point of 
remaining. I left at the inter- 
val and so — with apologies to 
the company — this review is 
of the first half only. 

Yemi Ajibade’s historical 
drama, which he. directs him- 
self. with Burt Caesar, is 
admittedly short on the kind 
of action that might hold the 
average CSE student A glance 
at the programme assures one 
that like Godot Hannibal 
will make no appearance. 


With the great elephant-man 
occupied in isolating Rome 
from her allies, the home front 
is being held together by 
others. 

Id a Carthage economically 
rendered by Andrea Montag’s 
mock-ups of Phoenician mu- 
rals, we find the governor 
Hasdrubal Gisco (Bob Phil- 
lips) attempting to cement an 
African alliance against the 
armies of Scipio and the 
traitor Massinisa. To this end 
he marries his daughter 
Sopbonisba (Judith Jacob) to 
the Numidian King Syphax 
(Willie Payne); overcoming 
her initial reluctance, she 
makes a rousing speech on her 
new husband's behalf, promis- 
ing, inter alia, “a green 
revolution": and at halHime 
the Pan-Africans look likely to 
get a result- 

Mr Ajibade's script occu- 
pies a peculiar twilight zone 
between Livy and Flaubert, 
with entire Alps of exposition 
rearing up in the path of the 
human entanglements — tric- 
ked out with (straight-faced) 
lines such as “It's not the 
Romans again, is it?”. The 
effect of being plunged head- 
long into an overwritten dy- 
nastic novel could have been 
saved by more compelling 
playing, especially from the 
men; the thing bumps and 
grinds along to little purpose.

THE TIMES MONDAY JUNE 16 1986 


Tension as 
blacks 
remember 
Soweto 

Continued from page 1 

Despite the continuing high 
rate of deaths since the impo- 
sition of the emergency, Mr 
Mellct contended that the 
“number of separate incidents 
of violence" was showing “a 
downward trend". He was 
unable to produce any statis- 
tics to substantiate this claim. 

The Durban bombing has 
reinforced fears that the vio- 
lence will increasingly spread 
to white areas, and that the 
ANCs campaign of insurgen- 
cy warfare will assume a much 
more overtly terrorist 
character. 

With the approach of 
today's anniversary, many 
schools in white areas have 
been drilling their children in 
what to do in case of attack. 

At one school in the Johan- 
nesburg area, for example, 
pupils have been trained to 
take shelter under their desk at 
a given number of rings on the 
school bell. 

Large numbers of blacks are 
expected to stay away from 
work today in response to calls 
from trade unions and black 
political organizations to com- 
memorate the Soweto 
uprising. 

Some companies, including 
the Anglo American mining 
and industrial conglomerate, 
have given their black em- 
ployees the day oft 

Other companies have said 
they will take no disciplinary 
action if workers stay away, 
but will dock their pay. 

Mr Mellet said the Govern- 
ment regarded June 16 as a 
normal working day and the 
security forces would provide 
“full protection" against any 
form of intimidation by 
strikers. 

“I would like to make the 
point that the Government is 
in control of the situation. 
There should be no doubt 
about that." 

Mr Mellet also announced I 
that “all bona fide church 
services" would be permitted 
today. He refused to define, 
what a bona fide church 
service was, but it can be 1 
presumed that it would ex- 
clude political speech-making 
and the display of anti-govern- 
ment banners and slogans. All 
other meetings, both indoors 
and out, to commemorate 
June 16 are banned.

match against John Prince, the New Zealand captain, in the MacRobertson Shield series (Photographs: Chris Harris). 



Even the poorest famili es benefited 
from the. village's unique crop, which 
was the source of its prosperity. But the 
crop also made the village vulnerable-. 

The steep mountains and , the rocky 
soil yielded seed potatoes of rare 
quality. The villagers had heard that, 
when planted in the plains, each of their 
potatoes produced 50 others. Merchants 
came all the way from the town to. the 
foothills to buy their produce, but paid 
them little Why, the villagers asked 
themselves, should they let these outsid- 
ers grow fat ou their hard-won crops? 

But it was just- talk. -The merchants’ 
heavily-laden mules took several days 
to make the journey over difficult 
mountain trades from the village to 
town. Few villagers ever ventured that 
far. Only Ram Saran, whose ancestors 
had been village headmen, had the self- 
confidence to' try to . beat the merchants 
at their own game. 

He went to town, made inquiries, 
confimed that the villagers were bring 
grossly underpaid^ and then tried to seH 
his potatoes directly to the wholesalers. 
They were not interested in such small 
quantities. 

Ram Sarah refused to give up. He ' 
returned to the village, persuaded some 
of his neighbours, to entrust their 
potatoes to him, and borrowed money . 
to hire mules. The wholesalers took him 
more seriously now: He became a 
middleman. The village knew he would, 
not cheat it as outsiders always did. 

The villagers’ prosperity grew. The 
mules which departed with potatoes., 
brought back rice,; lentils and vegetables 
■which do not grow at such high 
altitudes. The villagers knew nothing of 
proteins and vitamins, but their diet 
became healhier and disease less fre- 
quent. When they had any money left 
after buying feed, they purchased buffa- 
loes and cows. During lean years they 
sold off cattle to pay for food.' When 
good times returned, they purchased 
more cattle. 

They could afford to build spacious 
huts with broad verandahs which faced 
the warm sun in the winter and were 
open, to coding breezes in the summer. 
Craftsmen came from afar and were 
generously rewarded for the intricately 
carved pillars winch they put up to 
support the yerandah roofs. The high 
prices paid for their potatoes enabled 
the villagers to take in their stride the 
losses they often sustained when wild 
animals from the forest raided their 
crops. 

Ram Saran acquired half a dozen 
buffaloes, 20 cows and a horse. When 
wholesalers tried to manipulate the 
marked to force down the price; he ' 


pyiiaii y oiitspiarted them. He knew that 
no other village in the area could 
produce seed potatoes of similar 

quality. 

Then a wholesaler informed him that 
the Govenmem was building cold 
storage plants for potatoes, it would 
now be possible, the merchant ex- 
plained, to store potatoes all the year 
round. The high price commanded by 
the village potatoes, he said, was bound' 
to faH- 

Ram did not believe any of it. The 
merchants, hetold the villagers,, were up 
to their u s ua l tricks. He held out, and in 
the end got the money be wanted. 

But- next year the cold stores were 
filled with new, high-yield varieties of 
seal potatoes lately introduced in tbc- 
pbins. Ram Saran again refused to pan 
with the village's crop at the price the 
wholesaler offered. He bargained and 
— while prices continued to fell, 
seed potato market, quite distinct 
from the vegetable market which dealt 
in potatoes for domestic consumption 
at a fraction of the cost, was glutted. 
Ram Saran’s potatoes began to rot in the 
heat. In the end he sold them in the veg- 
etable market at a price several times 
lower dan he used to get in the past 
The villagers sold cattle to buy the 
food they needed until the next harvest 
When prices remained low next year, 
they sold more cattle: It took them 
several years to realize that their 
prosperity would never return. They 
knew now how unwise they had been to 
rely on a single crop for their income. 

They had not done so from choice. 
The natural conditions that had made it 
possible for. them to produce the best, 
seed potatoes had also made it difficult 
to raise any other crops except wheat, 
and that they could grow only in small 
quantities. The grain harvest, never 
sufficient for their own needs, could not 
replace the income from the potatoes. 

The progress which brought with it 
cold storage plants, and which made 
more food available to those who - 
needed it, deprived the village of the_ 
income dial used to feed it ~ 

Ram Saran, an old man now, sits on 
the verandah of his hut and recalls the 
past without bitterness. Village life, he 
says, has always been insecure, at the 
mercy of the elements and of outside 
forces over whicta poor folk have no 
control. “We have to make the best of - 
it.” 

Life here is now harder than in any- 
other village in the area. The wealthiest :J 
village has-become the poorest

Nature notes 


. Caterpillars of many species 
of moths are swarming over the 
oaks: as many as halfa million 
caterpillars have sometimes 
been recorded on large trees. 
Especially common in some 
woods are the hump-backed- 
green caterpillars of the winter 
moth: they drop to the ground 
and pupate among the dead 
leaves. 

Families of starlings and of 
blue and great tits feed vora- 
ciously on a teeming supply of 
food. All these birds are usually 
single-brooded, and some male 
great tits, whose young are now 
independent have started sing- 
ing again. 

The tall meadow buttercups 
are coming into fill] flower as the 
squat bulbous buttercups de- 
cline; apart from their height 
they can be distinguished by the 
of the 


way in wtuen the si. 
bulbous buttercup turn back 
and stand away from the flow- 
ers. 

Bird’s-foot trefoil, another 
yellow (lower with a red or 
orange tinge is common on 
grassy banks. Common spotted 
orchid, with its blotchy leaves, is 
opening on roadsides: the pale 
pink fragrant orchid is out on 
chalk hills. DJM

f actory pay rises down but 


still too high, says CBI 


By Edward Townsend, Industrial Correspondent 


V After the US economy infur- 
marionrOeased last week, it is 
dear thehatton is on fee verge 
of a recession. . - 

* The Pofyaimn ^consensus" 
view feat there wtD be a surge 
of growth in fee second half of 
1986 is looking more and more 

CanrifsL • 

Amimg the pointers to a 
recession were: 


;• RetaB sales in May fell 0.1 
.per cent to an annual rate of 
$117.05 billion. This pot retail 
sales a mere 0.16 per cent 
above last Decembers level. 
The peak occurred in Septem- 
ber 1985 - S119.I billion - so 
feat May retail sales were' 
faariy 2 per cent below that 

• Industrial production in 
May feD- 03 per, cent to a 
,-seasonally adjusted' . ‘ index 
number of 1243 (1977=100) | 
which compared wife 323.6 in , 
January 1985. Thus, in fee 
last 16 months, US industrial | 
production has risen 0.49 per 
cen£ a statistically irrelevant 
jtimher. Knee January tills 
year, industrial production has 
fallen 2 per cent : 


Pay rises in manufacturing 
industry this year are averag- 
ing 6.25 per cent, marginally 
lower than a year ago but still 
far too high say fee Govern- 
ment and employers’ leaders. 

Latest pay riser estimates, 
published today by the Con- 
federation of British Industry, 
show that increases are down 
on last year’s 6.5 per cent 
average in manufacturing and 
cover a .wide range, fee bulk 
falling in the 4,5 per cent to 73 
per cent band: 

The new estimates will be 
seen by ministers, as strength- 
ening fee Government's argu- 
ment that what are regarded as 
excessive pay deals under- 
mine attempts to curb 
unemployment. - 
' . r -The CBI pay data tank 
results follow hard; on the 
heels of Last week’s jobless 
figures which revealed an 
upward trend for fee sixth 
month in succession. 

-According to Department of 
Employment figures, average 
earnings in fee year to April 
rose by 8.7. per cent, arid are 
now increasing three times 
faster than inflation. 1 


The annual inflation rate 
published on Friday fell to 2.8 
per cent in May, fee lowest for 
18 years. 

The Government’s tax and 
price index, also published on* 
Friday, rose only marginally 
in fee year, so feat wage 
earners needed a pay rise of 
just 0.9 per cent to maintain 
feeir living standards. 

This is . tartly .reflected in 
the CBI data and the organiza- 
tion said that the cost of living 
— in line wife reductions in 
fee year-onrytar tale of price 
inflation — is receding in 
importance, as an upward 
pressure on pay settlements, 
although it remains fee biggest 
influents. 

An inability to increase 
prices remains, fee strongsst 
downward pressure on pay. 

. While manufacturing wages 
are rising by 635 per cent, 
those in private services are 
rising even faster. 

Catering, leisure, insurance, 
tanking, finance, retailing, 
transport and communica- 
tion, business and profession- 
al services sectors are showing 
average rises of- 6.75 per cent- 





Sir Terence Beckett; pay 
call unheeded by many 


Lord Young, fee Secretary 
of Stale for Employment, said 
that more jobs would come 
from a more sensible altitude 
towards pay, productivity and 
perfonnance. 

The CBI's figures would 
appear to indicate tbat not all 
its members are responding to 
itspay message. 

The drop m fee level of pay 
rises since last year of just 035 
per cent is a long way short of 
fee minimum 2 per cent 
decrease in wage rises urged by 
CBI leaders. 


to report heavy losses 


By Our City Staff 


- Aitken Hume, the financial 
services group headed by fee 
Conservative MP Jonathan 
Aitken, will test the loyalty of 
its shareholders this week 
when it unveils a big loss for 
the last financial year, and fee 
. passing of its final dividend. 

The full measure of its 
difficulties will be contained 
in the defence document re- 
sisting fee £80 million take- 
over bid from the Tranwood 
Group.., 

. Estimates in fee City had 
ranged from a loss of £2 
million to a profit of £3 
million but the outcome, after 
charging large exceptional and 
extraordinary items, is likely' 
to an overall loss of about £8 
million. 


The board realizes that 
reporting such a heavy loss' 
while on the receiving end of a 
bid will not encourage share- 
holders -to remain loyaL But 
fee defence document is 
bound to point out that after 
the uuumatic events of recent 
months and various top-level 
management departures; fee 
company is now on a growth 
course. The figures for last 
year will he represented as a 
tidying-up operation. 

Investors will be keen to 
learn of the progress of fee 
American food management 
arm, NSR— which has attract- 
ed fee predatory attentions of 
Tranwood.

The Thatcher and Reagan 
governments have only

spending and government in-:,

have . failed to reverse it, 
Professor Milton Friedman 
says in a study published 
today of fee progress of free- 
maiket economics. 

“The high hopes feat many 
ofus placed in fee elections of 
Margaret Thatcher in Britain 
and Ronald Reagan in the 
United Stales have been real- 
ized to only a limited extent. 1 ’ 

Professor Friedman accepts 
that fee tnraround in the size 
and scope of. government 
started earlier ih Britain and 
tbat Mrs Thatcher has made 
notable achievements in pri- 
vatizing state industries and 
ending exchange control -But 
he argues that the only, major 
reversals of policy have bee in

governments, notably China. , J

Grand Met ‘offered 
£600m for hotels 9 


Grand Metropolitan, in- 
creasingly tipped as a target 
for the next mega-bid, has 
reportedly been offered £600 
million for its hotel business. 

The group, which took the 

unprecedented step last week 

of meeting City institutions to 
discuss its foture, is likely to 
reject fee offer as insufficient. 

The bidder is said to be the

Trading profit of this business 
last year rose from £32 million 
to £37.6 million. The terrorist 
scares are bound to have hit 
fee profitability of many of the 
European hotels this year. 

In fee City, there has been 


incireasii% criticism of Grand

to look closely at the break-up

Buyouts in

wood team, is keen to launch a 
flotation of NSR in fee United 
States. 

But Aitken Hume seems 
certain to cite US legal opin- 
ion to support its view feat 
such a transfer would not be 
allowed. 

Aitken Hume shareholders 
are likely to be offered fee 
choice of an established man- i 
agement now released from 
fee problems of fee past and 
an opportunistic outsider keen 
lo capitalize on its undoubted 
assets. 

So far there has been no hint 
of ah outsider or white knight 
making a rival offer. Bui once 
the Aitken Hume figures are 
out in the open, another 
bidder could emerge. 


By Jeremy Warner 
. The value of management 


buyouts in Britain will top £2 
billion this year, says Peat 
Marwick, fee accountancy 
firm. 

This compares wife £40 
million in 1980. when fee 
notion of managers buying fee 
unwanted subsidiaries of big 
companies - rather than sell- 
ing or closing them — was in 
its infancy. 

The practice has grown 
steadily since it gained public- 
ity when a consortium of 
managers and employees 
bought National Freight for 
£50 million from fee Govern- 
ment five years ago. 

The value ofbuyouts rose to 
£820 million last year. And 
deals worth about £600 mil- 
lion have been completed so 
far this year. 

Mr David Carter of Peat 
Marwick said he thought the 
total value could grow to more 
than £2 billion fry fee end of 
December. 

Mr Carter was speaking on 
the occasion of fee 50th 
British management buyout 
worth more than £10 million 
- fee £21.6 million purchase 
of Ray beck, fee clothing man- 
ufacturer and retailer. 

He said total funds specifi- 
cally set aside to finance 
buyouts now totalled about 
£500 million and this repre- 
sented only a third of fee total 
fends available for equity 
investment in buyouts. 

The £2 billion forecast was 


based on fee “modest assump- 
tion 11 that equity fends would , 


tion” feal equity fends would, 
be matched by loan and 
overdraft capital on a ratio of 
one to three. 

Mr Carter said management 
buyouts were making a big 
contribution to the revival of 
fee economy since they were 
freeing accomplished manag- 
ers from fee constraints of a 
remote head office.

Owners Abroad, Britain’s

Mr Errol Cossey, fee former

Nine guidelines for 
economic sanctions 


Economic sanctions (sony. Prime 
Minister, "measures”) certainly have 
a long diplomatic pedigree. In 432 BC, 
Pericles half-starved the Megarians 
with a trade embargo. That little 
episode ended in war, which was 
precisely what the 20th century ad- 
vocates of economic weapons hoped 
they might prevent- Sanctions were to 
be a substitute: butter, not guns would 
rule the world. 

In 1919, President Woodrow Wil- 
son epitomized this optimism: a 
nation that is boycotted, be opined, 
**is a nation that is in sight of 
surrender”. The 20th century has 
dedicated a great deal of history to 
proving him wrong. Mrs Thatcher’s 
South African dilemma has arisen at a 
moment when the cyclical reputation 
of the sanctions weapon is at a low 
point. 


High marks 


authors' seventh and eighth findings. 
These are that a rag-bag of companion 
policies (such as covert military 
action) do not markedly increase the 
chances of success, and nor does 
reliance on international co- 
operation. 

No one could accuse Mrs Thatcher 
of ignoring the authors’ ninth 
commandment: look before you leap. 
She should take note of their evidence 
that the least effective method is to 
slide gradually into the sanctions 
business, attempting to escalate the 
attack as time goes on. Their message 
on the best type of sanctions is, 
however, less clear. 

Blocking exports to the victim is the 
easiest, but imposes the highest cost 
on the sanctioner (remember Britain 
is South Africa's third largest sup- 
plier): blocking imports from the 


target the most painful to him, but the 
least easy to enforce. Not every orange 
bears a truthful mark of origin. 

Financial sanctions have proved 
effective, but mostly against small aid- 
dependent neighbours of the United 
States, where stick and carrot have 
been used together. 

Towards larger countries, financial 
weapons are harder to use. The HE 
does take the view that the drying-up 
of long-term credit helped to turn the 
political tide in Mr Ian Smith's 
Rhodesia: and that the controversial 
freeze on assets played a signficant 
part in the affair of the Iranian 
hostages. But banks with large , 
outstanding loans to target countries 
are vulnerable (although in Argentina, 
British banks were largely protected 
by the involvement of other countries' 
banks in joint loans). 

Most crucially of all, money — even 
less than oranges — bears no mark of 
origin; and the dislocation of trade 
from capital flows in today's world 
makes it harder to control the two in 
tandem. 


In theory, the importance of sanc- 
tions should increase naturally, as 
trade accounts for a rising proportion 
of national income worldwide. There 
has certainly been no shortage of 
attempts to apply them. 

The Washington-based Institute for 
International Economics last year 
completed a study of 103 episodes 
since the beginning of the First World 
War, 68 of them involving the United 
States, and 21 involving Britain. The 
frequency has increased; the success 
rate seems to have fallen. 

The authors offer, for the future, 
nine commandments. To begin with, 
don’t have inflated expectations of 
what sanctions can achieve — a 
warning that should be obvious, but 
does not seem to be. 

Sanctions have a poor record in 
altering military plans or major 
domestic policies. By contrast they 
score considerable successes when 
allotted a deliberately modest or 
supporting role. The authors give 
quite high marks to the British 
exercise of sanctions against Argen- 
tina during the Falklands war. 

Secondly, they work best against the 
weak or unstable; most recent Ameri- 
can successes have been against small 
near-neighbours. US sanctions im- 
posed on the Soviet Union have been 
ineffective or even (remember the 
pipeline row?) counter-productive. 

The IIFs third rule of thumb is that 
it is more effective to invoke sanctions 
against allies than adversaries; and the 
closer the trade links, the greater the 
chance of success. It follows, fourth, 
that the greater the economic damage, 
the better; in the cases that the HE 
scores as “successes”, it calculates the 
cost to the victim averaged 2.3 per 
cent of national income, while failures 
imposed an average cost of barely 
more than half of one per cent. 

What, fifth, of the cost to the 
sanctioner? “If you need to ask the 
price, you can’t afford the yacht” — a 
gloomy message for an would-be 
sanctioner with an unemployment 
rate as high as Britain’s. 

Limited objectives, coupled with 
full-blooded sanctions, work best — a 
sixth point further reinforced by the 


Essential role 


Yet there remains an essential role 
for sanctions, as the I1E points out, 
filling the gap between weapons that 
are too massive (military) or too 
meagre (diplomatic). 

It is in this gap that Mrs Thatcher 
now finds herself, where the “success” 
of sanctions is not to be measured 
only in terms of economic con- 
sequences in the target country but in 
political consequences at home. Wit- 
ness Lloyd George, in 1935, on 
sanctions against Italy, which “came 
too late to save Abyssinia, but ... just 
in the nick of time to save the 
Government”. 

Yet those now urging Mrs Thatcher 
on should remember Mussolini’s 
response: to reply “with our disci- 
pline, with our sobriety, and with our 
spirit of sacrifice”. It is rare that self- 
sacrifice is not required of the 
sanctioner too.

Chemicals keep Croda profits steady 


Speciality chemicals is one 
of the glamour businesses of 
the 1980s, offering high 
growth rates and high returns 
on capital. 

If there are any such busi- 
nesses which have not al- 
ready attracted a pack of 
hungry predators, they can be 
bought on earnings multiples 
in the 20s. Those quoted on 
the Stock Exchange com- 
mand multiples in the high 
teens. 

Croda International has 
long been thought of as a 
speciality chemicals compa- 
ny, but it stands on a price- 
cam in gs multiple of barely 
13. Far from having a spec- 
tacular record, its profits 
growth is more usually de- 
scribed as solid, or even 
pedestrian. 

The pie charts help to show 
why. Croda's performance is 
being dragged down by its 
activities outside the special- 
ity chemicals area. 

The main speciality chemi- 
cals company. Croda Chemi- 
cals International, has done 
well. It accounts for only 32 
per cent of turnover, but 
contributes 63 per cent of 
proffL Return on capital em- 
ployed is 28 per cent com- 
pared with an average of 20 
per cent for the group. 

Of Croda's three other 
divisions. Croda Polymers, 
with a return on capital of 20 
per cent, is the closest to

After the disposal of the

Cromano Consumer Prod- 
ucts. recently expanded by 
two acquisitions — in cosmet- 
ics and toiletries — also has a 
food division. The return on 
capital employed is IS per 
cent Its recent performance 
has been impaired by the less 
profitable acquisitions. The 
objective is to turn these 
round as quickly as possible: 

Least profitable is Croda 
World Traders which, says 
the chairman. Sir Frederick 


Wood, “is receiving a lot of 
attention." Accounting for 37 
per cent of turnover, it pro- 
duces a mere 7 per cent of 
profit and a return on capital 
of only 10 per cent. 

After the closure of Pre- 
mier, the edible oil refining 
operation, Croda World 
Traders is a grouping of six 
companies which may have 
some similarities but which, 
in reality, have been pul 
together for administrative 
purposes. 

The two biggest sectors are 
the agricultural and hydro- 
carbons. The agricultural 
business is an example of 
vertical integration back- 
wards into the source of 
supply. The company renders 
bone and other animal resi- 
due into fats and protein 
which, in turn, are used as 


feedstock for Croda's other 
activities such as the manu- 
facture of soap. 

The concept of vertical 
integration is always alluring 
in that it appears to offer the 


prospect of securing basic 
feedstock at reasonable 


feedstock at reasonable 
prices. It has not, however, in 
this instance protected Croda 
from the vagaries of the 
market place. Croda is part of 
the market, but the market is 
still beyond Croda's controL ■ 

The agricultural business 
can still make good money in 
the good years but when — as 
now — business turns down- 
wards, it becomes difficult to 
make a profit in this highly 
competitive area. 

The hydrocarbons business 
is based mainly on tar and 
bitumen, which are made 
into road building com- 


pounds. Last year’s bad sum- 
mer weather cut into the road 
surfacing season, but new 
products helped to offset this. 
Performance, however, is 
barely satisfactory. 

The bakery services busi- 
ness, which is most akin to 
speciality chemicals* is also 
one of Croda's most profit- 
able, with the group's second 
highest rate of return on 
capital employed. After the 
sale of Premier some special- 
ist operations — frying oils 
and blended fats - have been 
retained in bakery services to 
form the nucleus of a special- 
ity edible oil business. 

Of the remaining three 
sectors, two are involved 
mainly in honey trading and 
the third is an old-established 
company which processes oil 
for the paint industry. Hav- 


— Croda appears to be in no 
hurryto rationalize further. 
Sir Frederick intends to get 
performance, and businesses 
which are unsatisfactory wfl] 
be made satisfactory. 

This is likely to mean more 
of the same for shareholders. 
It appears that there has been 
nothing exceptional about 
the first six months of 1986. 

Mr Martin Evans, chemi- 
cals analyst at County Securi- 
ties, is forecasting pretax 
profits of £25 million for 
1986, just 9 per cent ahead of 
1985. 

■: This may be enough to 
allow for a modest dividend 
increase, the first since 1982, 
when it was bumped up by 85 
per cent from 3.75p net to7p 
as part of Croda's defence 
against an unwelcome bid 
from Burmah. 


- Certainly shareholders 
should not be looking for a 
dividend i no-ease at the in- 
terim stage. If the final is 
increased to give an 8p total, 
the dividend is still only 
covered 1-5 times. 


The high dividend, com- 
bined with a big proportion 
of earnings from overseas 
sources. . - has meant that 
Croda has been unable to get 
relief for advance corporation 
tax on dividends, and the

Croda is looking for acqui-

Brazil poised to dig deep 
ahead of oU price rise 


While oil companies are 
scaling down their exploration 
in the North Sea, Brazil's 
state-run oil monopoly, 
Peirobras, has announced that 
it is to intensify its exploration 
programme despite the fell in 
prices. 

To add to this apparent 
eccentricity, Peirobras is look- 
ing for oil and evaluating finds 
in extremely deep waters. 
Below these, oil has never yet 
been recovered, and it will 
cost well above £13 a barrel. 

The Brazilian government 
has concluded that there will 
never be a better time to look 
for oil. Nearly half the world's 
drilling rig capacity and other 
offshore equipment is idle and 
it can be hired for a fraction of 
the normal price. 

Brazil is one of the most 
active countries in oil explora- 
tion. Forty-eight rigs are work- 
ing on land. S3 at sea. 

The country already pro- 
duces 60 per cent of its oil, 
compared with less than a fifth 
only sixyears ago when Brazil 
was one of the countries 
hardest hit by rising oil prices. 

The present low price 
means that Brazil's oil bill this 
year may be half Last year's $4 
billion (£265 billion). So 
some of the savings can be 
invested in more prospecting 
and field development, 

Immediately after the first 
oil shock, Brazil had to jump 
from paying less than a sixth 
of its export earnings for its oil 



to more than half. This helped 
to precipitate the country's 
severe debt crisis. 

Brazil aims to be self-, 
sufficient in oil by the turn of 
the century. It has 21 billion 
barrels of proven reserves, 
enough to maintain present 
extraction rates for nearly 10 
years. 

But to guarantee self-suffi- 
ciency for any length of time, 
reserves of 10 billion to 15 
billion barrels are needed. 

Last year two important 
finds were made in water up to 
3,000ft deep, 70 miles from 
the shore and out beyond 
where Brazil's main offshore 
fields are located 

They each contain between 
500 million and 1 billion 
barrels of oil, effectively dou- 
bling the country's reserves. A 


third major find, perhaps even 
larger, has been made in 
equally deep water more 
recently. 

To extract this oil demands 
technology which does not yet 
exist. Robots will have to 
work on the sea bed wellheads 
and floating extraction sys- 
tems will have to be used. 

But with the previous oil 
shock still sharply in people's 
minds and demand for oil 
starting to rise again, Brazil 
has decided to go ahead now. 

Oil consumption has hardly 
grown in Brazil during the 
past five years because of a 
substitution programme. 

Enough alcohol is now dis- 
tilled to replace 150,000 bar- 
rels of oil a day. Several 
thousand firms have switched 
to using electricity —there was 


a surplus until Iasi year be- 
cause of a recession. Charcoal, 
wood and sugar cane bagasse 
are widely used by industry. 

However, the process of 
substitution has now reached 
its limits. With the economy 
booming, demand for oil has 
started to grow again. 

it costs £27 to distil the 
equivalent to a barrel of 
alcohol, and food produrilion 
has been a victim of the 
expansion in the sugar cane 
field. 

After last year’s fast eco- 
nomic growth, the electricity 
surplus has ended and there 
have been power cuts. 

Shielded from pressures to 
maximize profits, Brazil is 
searching for more oil now 
rather than delaying until the 
price rises again. 

The government seems 
more relieved that the import 
bill has been cut than con- 
cerned that its revenues have 
been reduced. 

It is felt in Brasilia that 
prices will increase not later 
than the early 1990s. By then 
oil reserves in the non-Opec 
countries will be virtually 
exhausted, and this will be 
accelerated by the curtailment 
in exploration elsewhere. 

Brazil hopes that by then it 
will be immune to the effects 
of the next oil shock.

A second major US contract for 
mteffigent payphones- fids time 
for New York and Chicago -has 
farther established Plessey as 
the worid’s leading manufactur- 
er of these advanced systems. 

Plessey has now sold its 
range of intelligent payphones 
to 20 administrations in 15 
countries, including the UK. In 
addition to the US ordei; 
contracts have been awarded 
recently by Sweden^ Teie- 
vaerker, JDK or Denmark, 
CTNE in Spain and the Eire 
Post Office. 

UK ORDERS 

At home, British Telecom has 
placed a series of orders total- 
ling more than £60m for 
Plessey payphones and 
enhancements as pan of its 
plan to replace its entire popu- 
lation of 77,000 public pay- 
phones. Hull Telephone

At the recent Communications 
86 exhibition Plessey unveiled 
a revolutionary new pay tele- 
phone, designed to operate 


telephone 

system. It can therefore be 
installed anywhere within 
reach of the many cellular 
networks in operation or 
planned throughout the world. 


Total army systems 
capability on show 


At the British Army Equipment 
Exhibition 86, Plessey provides 
an impressive demonstration of 
its total army systems capability. 

The Plessey stand features 
large-screen plasma displays 
and an area configured to 
represent an integrated 
command system as might be 
employed at a headquarters 
location. 

FQRTHE 1990s 

Other features on the stand 
show the range of Plessey activ- 
ity from intelligent battlefield 
data terminals to advanced 
CTvpto-prorected communica- 
tions products - a reflection of 
the comprehensive scope of 
research and development 
work currently being under- 
taken forthe next generation of 
defence electronics for the 
1590s. 


The outside display area is 
designed to demonstrate bow 
Plessey provides a total army 
communications system capa- 
bility, from company level up to 
strategic HQ. 

Man pack and vehide- 
mounied radios will be in use, 
linked to headquarters with 
voice, facsimile and data facili- 
ties from the Multi-Role 
System (MRS) switch and mili- 
tarised terminals. 

The new systems and 
products shown also include 
Plessey radar-absorbent mate- 
rials and an extended range of 
power generators. 


Desktop 

advance 


Plessey bunched the Mantra 
Desktop computer at the 1986 
European Unix show. Aimed at 
many different markets includ- 
ing business use, it incorporates 
powerful multi-processor archi- 
tecture in a cost-effective 
British-built and conceived 
system. 

The eight-user system is 
based on a new single processor 
board. 

1986 Report 
and Accounts 

“Plessey is firmly back on 
course* 1 , says the Chabman and 
OiiefExecutive, Sir John Clark, 
in the 1986 Report and Accounts 
just published. Copies are avail- 
able on request from The 
Plessey Company pic. Vicarage

Satellite station opened 
on target for RAF 


A new satellite ground station 
now opened at RAF Oakhangei; 
Hampshire, marks the success- 
ful completion by Plessey, on 
time and on cost, of a £20 million 
project. 


The new station - one of the 
largest military installations of 
its kind in Europe - is a major 
enhancement of the satellite 
communications facilities at 
RAF Oakhangerwhich form an 
integral part of the Skynet 
system. 

This system began in the 
1960s and provides highly reli- 
able global long distance 
communications for UK land, 
sea and air forces.

( GILT-EDGED ) 

World trends hold key 
to market recovery 


The sharp rise in the gill 
market earlier this year has 
been followed by a period of 
weakness. Will this continue 
or will gilts resume their 
previous upward trend? 

To answer this question, 
attention should initially fo- 
cus on underlying global 
economic and financial influ- 
ences, as it is the larger 
international scene that is 
going to be decisive for gilts. 
In particular, five key inter- 
national trends need to be 
considered: 

• Oil prices. They are like- 
ly to remain weak in the next 
year, probably ranging from 
S10-SI6 per barrel. However, 
sterling's adjustment to low 
oil prices appears to be 
almost over. The apparent 
insensitivity of the pound to 
fails in the oil price is a new 
and encouraging feature for 
gilts. 

• Global liquidity. In a 
world environment of slug- 
gish growth and low inflation, 
above-target money supply 
growth will probably remain 
a feature in most leading 
countries (including the Unit- 
ed Slates, the United King- 
dom. West Germany and 
Japan) for a while. 

This excess liquidity, the 
bulk of which is being chan- 
nelled into financial and. to a 
lesser degree, tangible assets, 
is a positive for gilts. The 
potential inflation risk in this 
rapid money supply growth is 
being offset by low oil and 
commodity prices and a weak 
dollar. 

• World interest rates. 
With world disinflation set to 
persist fora sixth consecutive 
year, nominal interest rates 
could be as much as l .5-2 per 
cent lower in leading coun- 
tries by the year end. even 
though real interest rates will 
remain relatively high. Brit- 
ain is likely to continue 
playing an important part in 
the world move to lower 
interest rates. 

• US economic policy 
stance. Reflecting moderate 
US growth, low inflation and 
domestic acid Third World 
financial problems, the US 
will probably continue to 
adopt a relatively lax mone- 
tarv policy. American interest 


rates are set to weaken, with 
the dollar expected to register 
a further gradual, albeit, ir- 
regular. fall. However. US 
fiscal policy will become 
more restrictive, but not 
immediately. 

• Currency trends. Ster- 
ling should remain firm 
against a weak dollar, but is 
likely to fall against the 
Deutschmark bloc and yen. 
possibly to the tune of 10-15 
per cent by early next year. 
This represents an ideal cur- 
rency mix for the British 
economy, being tantamount 
to a non -in flationary curren- 
cy' devaluation. 

' Against what is. in general, 
a favourable international 
economic backcloth for gilts, 
domestic economic and polit- 
ical pressures are more 
ominous. 

Ahhough inflation will re- 
main low in the next year, 
continued excessive broad 
money supply growth, rapid 
increases in unit labour costs 
and longer-term inflation 
worries are having an adverse 
effect on sentiment 

The United Kingdom's 
balance of payments outlook 
is an additional worey for the 
gill market 

After seven consecutive 
years of current account sur- 
plus. a current account deficit 
of about £1 billion is likely 
next year. This results from 
rapidly growing imports and 
a reduced positive balance on 
oil trends. The sharply rising 
surplus on invisibles is un- 
likely to offset these trends 
entirely. 

The British political cli- 
mate has also had an increas- 
ingly negative influence on 
gilt-cdgcd sentiment during 
the current correction in UK 
financial markets. The worry 
is that the possibility of a 
Labour government could 
lead to significant speculative 
selling of sterling. 

These problems, however, 
should not be exaggerated. 
UK wages growth traditional- 
ly lags recorded inflation and 
there is a good chance that the 
rise in unit labour costs will 
be lower by the year end. 
although still above those of 
Britain's major competitors. 

Similarly, sharp rises in 


money supply growth arc 
potentially inflationary, bm 
not unduly so in a climate of 
low “imported" inflation. 

While the emergence of a 
current account deficit is 
likely to be of greaier con- 
cern . ii should remain within 
manageable proportions m 
1987-88. 

On the political from, the 
next election could be as laic 
as mid- 1988 and the domes- 
tic economic climate, includ- 
ing unemployment, could 
prove much more favourable 
by then. 

Added to all this, (he 
substantial real interest rate 
cushion suggests that another 
Barber boom, such as was 
encouraged by the Tories in 
1970s. is unlikely this time. 

Where does this leave the 
gill market? Mv view is that 
after its significant rise at the 
turn of the year, some correc- 
tion in gills was to be 
expected. As I see it. the 
deterioration in the gilt mar- 
ket which has taken place 
since mid-April is unlikely to 
last much longer. 

Importantly, the US bond j 
market appears to be stabiliz- 
ing: poor recent US economic 
growth data, together with 
the Mexican debt crisis with 
its serious implications for 
the US banking structure, 
should reduce the prospect of 
any Fed lightening and sup- 
port US bond prices in the 
near term. 

As the year progresses in- 
vestors in gilts arc likely to 
refocus attention on 
favourable British inflation 
and short-term interest rate 
prospects. 

As expectations for infla- 
tion m 1 987 and 1988 dimin- 
ish. the gilt market is likely to 
establish a yield base nearer 8 
per cent by the year-end 
compared with 9.5 per cent at 
present. 

However, given poor UK 
institutional liquidity and the 
authorities' need to increase 
the rate of funding, the 
improvement in bond prices 
will not be smooth.

Inflation prospects ‘worsening’ 


USM REVIEW 


The sharp fail in the rate of 
inflation to 2.8 per cent raises 
the question of whether infla- 
tion has come good too soon. 
Economists now see trouble 
for the Government in the 
likely profile of inflation over 
the next two years. 

After dipping again this 
month, the rate is set to steady 
around 3 per cent until sum- 
mer 1987. 

After that, with the first- 
" round effects of lower oil 
, prices having come through, 
“mortgage rates less helpful and 
■ strong growth in earnings 
continuing, it will head up- 
: wards, probably into the 4 per 
cent to 5 per cent range. 

“Things start to look rather 
, bad after next summer.” Mr 
' Keith Skeoch, chief economist 
. at James Capel, said. “From 
the point of view of the 
: economy, the general election 


By David Smith, Economics Correspondent 


has to take place then.” 

Some analysts already claim 
to have detected an attempt to 
keep base rates high this year, 
to produce better inflation 
numbers when they eventual- 
ly fall. 

This is taking too Machia- 
vellian a view, but can be 
argued via the exchange rate. 

in rejecting entry into the 
European Monetary System 
last Tuesday, Mrs Thatcher 
said: “To do so would deny us 
an option which we have at 
the moment. When you get 
speculation against sterling, 
there are only two ways of 
dealing with iL 
“One is using up precious 
reserves™ and secondly, by 
sharply putting up the interest 
rate. One is denied the option 
of taking the strain ou the 
exchange rate.” 

The Treasury is now keen to 


emphasize the retail price 
index, excluding mortgage 
rates. A year ago, the pub- 
lished inflation rate was 7 per 
cent or. excluding mortgage 
interest rates, just over 5 per 
cent 

Last month, the effect was 
in the opposite direction, re- 
corded inflation of 2.8 per cent 
becoming 3.1 per cent when 
mortgage rates are excluded. 

Leaving out the sharp fell in 
petrol prices, the underlying 
inflation rate has probably 
moved down from between S 
per cent and 6 per cent to 
between 3 per cent and 4 per 
cent. But, even on this mea- 
sure, it is likely to turn up 
from next summer. 

There is also the puzzle of 
when and if higb rates of 
broad money growth will feed 
through to higher inflation. 

The 3 per cent sterling M3 


jump in the May banking 
month now looks to be m large 
part explai ned by a sharp 
rundown -in non-residents’ 
sterling deposits, according to 
Mr Robert Thomas, chief 
economist at Green wefl-Mon- 
tagu. Bui this leaves the strong 
increases of earlier months. 

There has been a big build- 
up of liquidity in the econo- 
my. This money carmot be 
expected to. . remain idle 
indefinitely. 

The counterpart of strong 
broadmoney growth has been 
seen in asset prices. It may 
also explain strong growth in 
earnings. 

If, as some monetarists 
argue, this money will eventu- 
ally spill over into inflation in 
the goods market, the City 
forecasts ofa gentle rise in the 
inflation rate could prove too 
optimistic.

THE BARCLAyS GROUP INVESTMENT BANK 



One of the most interesting 
subsectors the USM has 
spawned over the last two 
years is food distribution. 
Changes in ransomer shop- 
ping habits, the trend far 

healthier earing, ami the. at- 
tractive margins available 
have led to the supermarkets 
capturing an increasira mar- 
ket share in sales of fresh 
produce. 

The supermarkets have de- 
manded of their producers 
top-quality produce at com- 
petitive prices delivered regu- 
larly and efficiently, and have 
also been anxious to rational- 
ize the chain of distribution in 
what is still a highly fragment- 
ed industry. For the large 
suppliers, which have invest- 
ed the capital required in cold- 
storage farilftifa, this has 
presented the opportunity for.

figures reflecting the strength 
of their managements. 

Hunter Saphir is one of the 
. largest suppliers of fruit and

larly strong in citrus Grafts,

root vegetables, principally 
potatoes although onions, car-

important. The company has 
invested : substantially fa 
washing, grading and padmg- 
ing plant to ensure the goods 
are sent to the supermarkets 
prepacked to their .require- 
ments. CoW-storage facilities 
ensure an adeqaate degree of 
freshness. 

The recent interim figures 
for the six months to March 
show profits marginally ahead 
at £4164)00 (compared with 
£ 390,000 last year) and against 
the very difficult background 
these results are satisfact or y. 
The market is looking for 
pretax profits in a range of 
£850,000 to £900,000 for the 
fall year, which leaves the 
shares on a prospective rating 
of approximately 15 times. As 
the company continues to gain 
market share, the stock has 
steady growth prospects.

A guide to 

career choice 


UNIVERSITY APPOINTMENTS 


A job that makes statistics talk 


The work of an actuary 


is a mystery to most 


people. Beryl Dixon 


examines the scope and 


opportunities offered 


by this profession. 



Few people know what an actuary does, 
and mo&L of those probably hold two 
popular conceptions. One. that actuaries 
are well paid, and two that they shut 
themselves away from mankind spend- 
ing their days peering at life expectancy 
tables. 

The first is true. The career, while not 
reaching the heights of some current City 
salaries can be lucrative. And the 
second? Given that the Institute of 
Actuaries defines the work as “applying 
theories of probability and compound 
interest and statistical techniques to 
practical problems,** it does not sound 
wildly exciting. 

But “No" says John Waugh of the 
Institute. “In pure research one could be 
a hermit with a computer, but nearly all 
actuaries must be able to communicate— 
with clients or colleagues." 

The truth is that like most jobs, there is 
no standard profile. Much actuarial work 
is concerned with long-term financial 
contracts such as file assurance or 
pension schemes. Sixty per cent of 
actuaries work for insurance companies, 
with a further 20 per cent in consulting 
practices, 10 per cent in pensions and 
insurance broking, and the remainder 
divided between the Stock Exchange, the 
Government Actuary's Department, in- 
dustry. commerce and lecturing. Some of 
these engage in pure research; others are 
managers. 

Consultants are constantly talking to 
clients. Senior actuaries in companies 
must be able to express themselves at 
management meetings. The “appointed” 
actuary in a life office needs to explain 
things to colleagues unfamiliar with 
statistics. This is a problem common to 
all actuaries — that of communicating 
with people, many at senior manage- 
ment level. Top managers who are 
experts in their own fields but not at 
home with mathematics, may resent any 
implied superiority on the part of the 
actuary. 

It is a small profession. About 1,500 
qualified actuaries work in the UK and 
between 700 and 800 British actuaries in 
other countries. But given the present 
shortfall at all levels, good actuaries have 
no difficulty in selecting the right 
company and the right environment. 
Many move from straight actuarial work 
into general management and many are 
directors of their companies. 

With the highest percentage of actu- 
aries employed in insurance companies, 
most begin in one. Here they are 


responsible for evaluating risks, costs 
and investment returns, and for ensuring 
that the company has sufficient funds to 
cover payments. An “appointed" actu- 
ary in every company has a statutory 
duty to certify that life funds are solvent 

Those in consultancy partnerships can 
expect to advise diems ranging from the 
large company pensions manager to the 
small life assurance company without its 
own actuary or large one considering 
merging different life assurance funds, 
and establish working relationships with 
company secretaries, accountants, solici- 
tors and the Inland Revenue. 

On the Stock Exchange they usually 
specialize in investment analysis and 
forecasting; in pensions and insurance 




The need to communicate 
with clients, unfamiliar with 
figures is an important 
attribute as many managers 
resent implied superiority 


broking, in advising on the merits of 
different schemes. In the Government 
Actuary's Department, actuaries advise 
the Government on public sector pen- 
sions and soda! security and act as 
consultants to nationalized industries. 

It is not necessary to be a trained 
mathematician toqualify, although most 
‘actuaries have degrees in maths or 
statistics — and the training is hard. It is 
essential to become a fellow of the 
Institute of Actuaries in London or the 
Faculty of Actuaries in Edinburgh. Their 
qualifications are ofequal status but each 
body functions independently and their 
examination structures differ slightly. 

Most English students choose the 
institute and most Scottish students the 
faculty, but this is not always the case. 

There is no formal period of articles. 
Trainees may be graduates in any subject 
“with a significant mathematical 
content" or in any subject at all 
provided that they have a high grade A 
level or Higher in maths. Alternatively, 
A level entrants with maths passes may 
sit the exams at their own pace, subject to 
restrictions on the number of papers 
attempted at one time. 

The average length of time taken to 
qualify is seven years but an ambitious 
graduate could do it in two, and it has 
been known to take 20! Rumour has it 
that the actuarial exams are the hardest 
of any profession. The failure rare is 


Hilary Flower and James Attwood are 
actuarial students with the same compa- 
ny. the TSB Trust Company in Hamp- 
shire. Both are unusual. Hilary, a 
cheerful extrovert, has a degree in 
economics and statistics rather than in 
maths. She chose this career because she- 
"wanted to work with figures and- 
statistics”. But although happy to work; 
on her own initiative she would not like* 
working alone all the time. She likes to 
feel part of a team in a small department ‘ 
and enjoys the contact she has with the 
company's insurance representatives. 


James, with excellent grades in maths, 
further maths and physics, turned down 
a university place and joined the 
company straight from the local college. 
Eighteen months into his training, and 
with several of the exams under his belt, 
he has no regrets. He is unusual, since 
most 18 year olds in his position would 
have opted for university. 

But both he and Hilary had had 
enough of full-time education — - Hilary 
having rejected any careers requiring 
postgraduate courses. Both are pleased to 
have found a professional training which 
can be combined with working. “It is real 
work," says Hilary, "we’re not 
supemumary trainees. We are responsi- 
ble for real projects."

appropriate industrial backgrounds will be 
welcomed. 


The new professor will be expected to lead an

degrees, and ranges from 25 per cent to a 
high 75 per cent on some occasions. 
Although one or two papers are generally 
regarded as the hardest, not all students 
find the same papers difficult 
The reason students find the exams 
taxing is described by the faculty and the 
institute to be that common to most 
professions — students constantly under- 
estimate the demands of studying after a 
day's work. The most succesrful are 
those who sit as many papers as possible 
while still relatively junior — before the 
demands of the job compete for time as 
there are no part-time courses! All study 
.had to be done, until recently, by 
correspondence supplemented by occa- 
sional tutorials. 


At the present time, research within the group is 
concerned with fundamental aspects of nudear 
reactor operation; thermo-fluids, plant simula- 
tion and control and risk assessment There is 
active involvement with most branches of the 
nuclear industry, which provides substantial fi- 
nancial support for the work being conducted. 
Extensive use is made of the Universities' re- 
search reactor at Risley, which is jointly funded 
by the Universities of Manchester and Liverpool.

The matter was further com- 
plicated by SLAC being, non-

existence ofa life assurance fond 
which would itself produce in- 
come that was available for

But that would only be so if ofa foreign insurance com 
the assets producing that . in- a proportion of the woridr 
come were themselves in the income of its parent, was not 
United Kingdom. To meet the permit led by a treaty containing 
situation special legislation was provisions similar, to articles 6 
enacted initially in 1915. . and 7. 


made to the basis of charge from 
a proportion of world-wide 
investment income based on 
'premiums lo a proportion based 
on liabilities; and (b) alterations 
were made, as to management 
expenses relief.' 

Did-tiiose alterations modify 
sea ion 430 “only in minor 
respects so as not to affect their 
general character'*? The test to 
be applied was ‘whether 'they 
“affected: the general character" 
of the previous litigation. SLAC 
contended tint they did. 

- The change— substituting one 
rough and ready yardstick for 
another — did not result in such 
a change in character. 

It was also contended by 
SLAC that a further effect of tire 
1969 legislation was to lake away 
or -limit the right to set off 
income tax deducted al source 
against corporation tax or to 
claim a repayment of such tax. 

But having considered tire 
provisions in the. Finance An 
1965 introducing' corporation 
tax. it could not be said that the 
effect of the legislation was to 
take away any right to repay- 
ment or set-off. v It was con-, 
cemed with -machinery only. 

-Thus- the amendments could 
not be said to have altered the 
general character of section 430: 
the conclusions reached by Mr 
Justice Vinelott otv that issue' 
were correct..

and the Isle of Man. 

Some, five tegkmal offices 
within the British, division ex- 
isted and had. tire ptinripal role 
of checking procedural matters 
leading up to the issue of 
policies and annuity contracts. 
Those, offices had no. authority 
to conclude bindn% fife policies; 
for that, authority had io be 
obtained from London. ~ 

The issue was whether for-the 
-purposes of section 316(3) a 
proposal was Tirade" when the 
client banded it to - the. focal 
agent who was a person au- 
thorized by SLAC to receive it. 

SLAC submitted that -it was.

Customs and Excise Commis- 
sioners v Dearwood Ltd 
Before Mr Justice McCowan - 
[Judgment given June 12} 

Where a transfer ofa business 
including ail its business assets 
was made by an insolvent 
company io another company 
.the ultimate intentions of the 
transferee as to foe type of goods 
or services that it vrould supply 
was irrelevant for value-added 
lax purposes,, as was foe 
transferor's insolvency. 

Hie vital consideration was 
whether the transferee had been 
pul in possession Of a going 
concern at foe time of foe 
transfer. 

Mr Justice McGowan so held 
in foe Queen's Bench Division 
allowing an appeal by the 
Commissioners of Customs and 
Excise against a decision by - a 
London VAT tribunal which 
had allowed an appeal by the 
respondent 1 company, 
Dearwood Ltd, against an 
assessment of £L,l 2 S by tire 
commissioners. 

VAT was charged on the 
invoice relating lb the transfer of 
stock, fixtures, fittings, lease, 
goodwill and depotits; and 
Dearwood sought to claim that 
sum as inpuL

Lacovia peerless 
after victory in 
Prix de Diane 


Lacovia consolidated her claim 
to being France’s best three- 
year-old fiOy with a sparkling 
display in the Prix de Diane 
Hermes, the French Oaks, at 
Chantilly yesterday. She bad 
already beaten several of her 
rivals in the Prix Saint-Alary 
and her two-length victory over 
Secret Form and the fast-finish- 
ing Galunpe leaves no doubt as 
uner superiority over her peers. 

In yesterday's race, Lacovia's 
pacemaker, Barinia. gave way to 
Trolley Song half-way down the 
-back straight, where the pair 
were tracked by Welcome Val- 
entine and Lacovia, with Carna- 
tion and Reloy dose up, British 
hope. Ivor's Image, ridden by 
Walter Swinbum. was towards 
the rear but she was going well 
and was only some six lengths 


place dose home. Galunpe 
would have got second in a few 
more strides and will clearly 
appreciate being moved up to a 
mile and a half in future. 

Lacovia's trainer. Francois 
Boutin, said. “She is com- 
parable with (be champion fil- 
lies 1 have trained in the past, 
such as La Lagune, River Lady 
and Northern Trick I shall now 
give her a rest until mid-August 
before preparing her for the Prix 
VermeiHe and the Prix de I’Arc 
de Triomphe." He also paid 
tribute to owner Gerry Oldham, 
describing him as “one of the 
most faithful owners I have ever 
met in racing”. 

Freddie Head, who won the 
Diane in 1971 on Pistol Packer, 
1978 on Reine de Saba and in 
19S2 on Harbour, said: “I was 


off the pace as the runners always going well and Lacovia 


entered the far turn. 

Trolley Song fell back at the 


led when she was asked. She is 
very calm and is the easiest filly 


beginning of the final straight to ride that 1 have partnered in 
and with just over two furlongs therace.” 


Tigb* finish; Mawsnff (left) takes the Baker Lorenz Maiden Stakes from Star Cotter at Sandora on Saturday.

But, Pipe has secured the 
services of Steve Cauthen for 
the gelding in the Gunihorpe 
Handicap at Nottingham, and 
he now looks ready to open his 
account. Cauthen can com- 
plete a double on the unraced 
Orban in the Long Eaton 
Stakes. The Henry Cedl- 
trained coll comes from a 
good family, and can recoup 


left to run. Lacovia and Freddie 
Head swept past Welcome Val- 
entine. Only Secret Form was 
able to respond immediately as 


Peter Goalandris, the owner 
of Secret Form, must have 
viewed the finish with mixed 
feelings. He was one of the

Peter Calver, the Ripon 
trainer, has already saddled 
six winners this year, com- 
pared to his total of two last 
season, and another can be 


expected today at Edinburgh 
with Foremast in the Tranent 
Stakes. Foremast has shown a 
dislike to starting stalls. On bis 
reappearance at Hamilton, the 
stalls were not in use due to 
the soft ground, but if he 
behaves himself be cannot be 
opposed. John Dorey, can 
make the journey from New- 
market worthwhile for the 
combination of trainer Mark 
Prescott and jockey George 
Duffield in the Cocckenzie 
Stakes at Edinburgh. Prescott 
has been very patient with the

SX) RADCUFFE APPREMTICE HANDICAP (E1.67G: Im 50vdl M3) Saturday S rCSllltS 


At York on Saturday a thrill- 
ing finish for the William Hill 
Handicap resulted in a dead 
heat between Governor General 
and Sew High. A full 18 minutes 
elapsed before the judge decided 
that Ray Cochrane had forced 
the 6-4 favourite up to share the 
spoils with Alan Mackay on Sew 
High in the final stride. 

The stewards were kept busy 
at York where Farajullah. an 
impressive winner at New- 
market recently was disqualified 
after finishing second to Hello 
Emani in the £10.000 Daniel 
Prenn Great Yorkshire Stakes. 
The placings of the second and 
third. Top Guest were reversed. 


. Sarab. ridden by Richard 
Quinn, was an impressive win- 
ner of the Prix du Chemin de 
Fer du Nord. at Chantilly 
yesterday. He took over from 
Petrol Blue two furlongs out and 
held Etat Major for an easy 
three- length win with test- 
finishing Apeldoom two lengths 
back in third. Willie Carson nad 
a wasted journey to France, 
when Dies Hern’s runner. 
Lucky Ring, was withdrawn 
after being found to be lame. 

Britain's other runner, the 
Jeremy Hindley-irained 
- Com me I'Etoile, could manage 
only seventh place behind Satco 
in the Prix Beneux but Waller 
Swinburn managed a third on 
Star Maite, trained by Alain de 
Royer-Dupre, in the Prix de 
Pomarme. 

Sad news from the course was 
that intended Gold Cup runner 
Balitou has fractured his near 
fore in a morning canter and will 
never race again, although he 
can be saved for stud. 

• Stay Low (Tony Ives) was a 
game winner or the six-furlong 
Premio Primr Passi at San Sira. 


Milan , yesterday. She made all 
the running to hold off the 
persistent challenge of Shuttle- 
cock by a head, with the other 
British filly, 

Regency Fille, one-and-a-half 
lengths back in third. This was 
the first ever success in a Group 
race for owner-trainer Gerry 
Blum. 

Oriental Soldier and 
Brazzaba. the British chal- 
lengers in the Premio d'Estate, 
had to settle for the minor places 
behind Max d'Or. Oriental Sol- 
dier, who led from two furlongs 
out till tackled by the winner at 
the distance, did not have his 
chances improved by the two 
hours of heavy rain that fell in 
the morning. 

• Pat Eddery and Grevjlle 
Starkey were out of luck at 
Cologne yesterday, where they 
finished fifth and tenth on 
Tiberius and Waugh in the 
Group 2 Zandors-llnion- 
Rennen behind Orfano (Peter 
Alafi) who earlier in the day 
rode his 2.000th winner on High 
Light.

thoroughbred contests, fielded 
three contenders in the Brecon

get was third to Marchan.

better by winning three races for

THETTMES MONDAY JUNE 161986 


CRICKET 


England selectors turn 
to an old master 
for new inspiration 


In recognition of his perpet- 
ual knack of taking wickets, 
the England selectors have 
asked John Lever to report to 
Headingley on Wednesday for 
the second Test match against 
India, sponsored by Comb ill. 
starting there on Thursday. 
Down ton has lost his place to 
French and ■ Robinson to 
Slack, and Athey, who did not 
play in the first Test, is in the 
13. Gooch, not Gower, will be 
vice-captain. 

The last of Lever’s 20 Test 
matches was in December 
1981 in Delhi, where, five 
years earlier, he had taken 10 
for 70 in a -memorably success- 
ful Test debut. He was kept 
out of the England side for 
three years from April 1982 
for playing in South Africa, a 
period when he was the most 
consistently effective bowler 
In county cricket. This he still 
is, even at the age of 37. In the 
last four seasons and a bit he 
has taken 445 wickets for 
Essex. 

He is sure to play and will 
become the oldest bowler of 
comparable pace (if not genu- 
inely fast any more, he is still 
brisk) to have appeared for 
England for a quarter of a 
century. Derek Shackleton 
was, in fact, slightly older in 
1 963. but he was of an 
altogether less demanding 
type. The one I am thinking of 
is Les Jackson, who was 40 
when he played against Aus- 
tralia in 1961. He, too, had 
been recalled, his only other 
Test having been against New 
Zealand in 1 949. 

But Robin Jackman was 
only a few months younger in 
1981. Richard Hadlee, who is 
arguably the best bowler in the 
world today, is 35 next month. 
What Hadlee and Lever have 
in common is a lovely natural 
rhythm, something which en- 
abled Ray Lindwall to go on 
until he was 39 and could have 
kept Dennis Lillee going for 
ever. In normal Headlingley 
conditions the Indians could 
have more to fear from Lever 
than any other English bowler, 
not least because as a Icft- 
arrner he poses special prob- 
lems of movement. 

Having been chosen for the 
first Test match, Robinson is 
unlucky to be dropped now. 
He scored 35 in the first 
innings at Lord's making 66 
for the first wicket with 
Gooch, and was out to a 
horrid ball in the second. He 
would also have been boosted 


By John Woodcock. Cricket Correspondent 

first Test against Australia last 
year his average, in 18 innings, 
was 11. If Gatling fought to 
keep him, h would have been 
out of loyalty and because be 


by the memory of his 175 
against Australia at 
Headingley last summer. But 
he is not out of all future 
reckoning, and Slack is a very 


staunch performer. Although 
Lamb hangs on he needs some 
runs before he can (eel at all 
secure, and if a batsman is left 
out on Thursday morning it 
could still be him. 

French is certain of a first

is such a good fellow. 

The idea of taking 13 to 
Headingley rather than the 
customary 12 is because of 
uncertainty about the pitch. I 
shall be very surprised if both 
spinners play and there will be 
an obvious temptation, in 
view of HeadingJey’s reputa- 
tion, to make do with four 
bowlers plus Gooch. More 
often than not runs are harder 
to come by there than wickets, 
and last year, when they were 
not (1.31 ! were scored in the 
first Test against Australia), 
England still won with Gooch 
serving as the fifth member of 
the attack. 

What may decide it in die 
end is whether the selectors 
feel that Pringle is up to 
operating as a Ml member of 
the attack. On his present 
form he should be. He bowled 
decently at Lord’s and has 
been taking wickets for Essex. 
Not for 50 years, when Nich- 
ols, Faroes and Read were all 
in contention have Essex 
found the England selectors 
taking such an interest in their 
bowlers. Yesterday, while Le- 
ver was taking 0 for 66 against

Apia (Renter) — Wales staged 
| a second-half fighrback.io "over- 
whelm Western Samoa on Sat- 
urday in the' final international 
of their South Pacific lbor. They 
piled on two penalties, two tries 
and a drop goal in a second-half 


scoring spree after trailing by 1 3- 
halftim 




14 at halt-time. 

Malcolm Dacey, the Welsh 
full back, scared 13 of his side’s 
points Grom three penalties and 
two conversions; Mark Titley, 
on the wing, crossed for two 
tries. 

In a game fast-moving despite 
the mid-20s deg C heat of the 
Samoan capital, Wales ran the 
focal side off their feet after a 
hesitant, start. Western Samoa 
went ahead nine minutes, after 
the start with a penalty from the 
full back Tele a Aialupo, al- 
though Wales hauled them back 
minutes later with an un- 
converted toy by Bowen on the 
wing. 

A brief penalty dud between 
Aiahipo and Dacey left Wales in 
front 7-6 midway through .the 
first half But the rest of tire spell 


belonged to Samoa as their 
captain. Dickie Tafba, and their 
centre. Niko Palamo, ran in tries 
to go 14-7 ahead. Just before the 
interval Titley scored his first 
try, which was convened by 
Dacey. ’ . ■ 

The second half was a rout by 
the Welsh, wbo are unbeaten in 
a series which has included 
internationals against Fiji and 
Tonga. A penalty by Dacey was 
followed bya drop goal from the 
nand-offhalt Jonathon Davies, 
before Dacey struck his third 
successful penalty kick. 

Moriarty. the welsh captain, 
touched down after a forward 
push from a penalty near the 
line to leave his ride secure on 
26-14. Titley' put the result 
beyond a£L doom right on foil 
thse with his second toy, which 
was convened by Dacey.

cap. He is a good wicket 
keeper yet a curious choice. 
He win let no-one down, but 
the selectors should be looking 
here for flair, which is what 
Rhodes of Worcestshire has, 
and for a belter batsman than 
French, which Rhodes is. If 
they think Rhodes is loo 
young he is already older than 
Alan Knott was when he 
started for England. 

Down ion had a good run 
(27 Tests, the first of them 
back in 1 981) and the case for 
retaining him because of the 
runs he made had become less 
valid. Since scoring 54 in the 


and Foster were doing 
damage. 

In the ordinary way the 

identity of the vice-captain js 

not announced for home Test 
matches, so that to have 
named Gooch seems rather 
pointed. Gatling made Gower 
an excellent number two, just 
as Gower, I am sure, would, 
and one day may, make 
Getting one. That Gooch has 
been elevated above Gower 
could be interpreted in several 
ways. 

It could be in the interests of 
change or as a way of sayjng 
that if for any reason Gatling 
were not to lead the side 
against New Zealand later in 
the summer, Gower would be 
unlikely to. It may have been 
felt that Gooch needed reas- 
surance or a tonic (be is 
known to have his doubts 
about making himself avail- 
able for Australia, though 
fancy he will) or that deposed 
commanders are best moved 
well to one side. Whatever the 
reason, Gooch is perhaps for- 
tunate to be specially favoured 
after coming so near to baling 
out in the West Indies. 


Richards takes centre stage 


By Peter Marson 


Two good centuries by Rich- 
ards and Rose at Bath on 
Saturday went some way to- 
wards diverting attention away 
from ibe contentious issue 
surrounding Botham. Mutter- 
ings and musing on the subject 
by members tended to fold into 
a comfortable, sleepy backcloth 
as they contemplated the 
magnificence of Richards in full 
flow. 

With the sun out almost 
everywhere on a proper 
cricketing day, batsmen had a 
belter time of it than bowlers 
until the last hour before the 
close that is. when, as likely as 
not. a tiring day in the field was 
a contribuunx cause in the foil of 
a crop of wickets. 

As it happened Somerset 
batted for near enough the 
whole day in running up 433 for 
six, so that Benson and Hinks 
were left to negotiate only a brief 
eight overs as Kent hit the last 14 


thereby ensuring maximum 
points. In the remaining 13 
overs before the dose, however, 
Essex lost their first three- 


runs of a long day. But at Trent 
Bridge, where Birch. Robinson 
and Randall made the bulk of 
Nottinghamshire's 294 runs, 

Sumy managed to lose Butcher 
and Clinton to Hadlee, and Saturday S SCOreS 
Lynch to Rice m making 38 runs . ^ ..

McKenna keeps her place 
as selectors hold faith 


By John Harness? 


The Curtis Cup selectors have 
kept faith with the players who 
did so well against the Conti- 
nent of Europe in the Vagliano 
Trophy competition last year for 
the match against the United 
States in Kansas in August. 

The only voluntary change is 
the replacement of Linda 
Bayman, of England, by Karen 
Davies, ofWales. Maureen Gar- 
ner, the ninth member of the 
Vagliano team, is now a pro- 
fessional and only eight are 
needed for the United States. 
There is one controversial 
choice, the retention of Mary 
McKenna, whose powers, at 37, 
seem to be on the wane. She has 
been saved, probably,, by some 
good foursomes per f o r mances 
this year in the SuimingdaJe and 
Avia tournaments, but more so 
by the ebullient contribution she 
makes to team spirit. 

Even so, one has to have 


sympathy for Caroline Pierce, 
the only British Isles player to 
reach the semi-final of the 
Amateur championship at West 
Sussex, Pul borough, last week. 
Despite official denial, one sus- 
pects that her comparative lack 
of length may have been at tire 
back of some selectors' mind. 

If so. it was a pity for Miss 
Pierce that the team was- chosen 
on Friday night, for Mamie 
McGuire, a New Zealander, 
ami 17, provided ample re- 
affirmation next day that the 
short game in golf is just as 
important as the long. 

This was conspicuously the 
case when it counted, at the end 
of the final against Louise 
Briers, of Australia, a strapping 
figure beside the petite New 
Zealander. Even when Miss 
McGuire assumed the lead for 
the fifth rime at the 15th, where 
Mrs Brim took three under- 


standable putts downhill from 
the back of the green to a flag at 
the front, the odds still seemed 
to be on the Australian 

But Miss Mamie had the 
better of a half in .four at the 
16th, her opponent being lucky 
to discover her ball sitting up m 
the rough, and it was she, rather 
than Mrs Brim, who secured 
the birdie at the long 17th. 
where she holed another bril- 
liant putt, from at least 30 feet. 

One's heart goes out to a 
young girl who has travelled 
from the other side ofthe world 
to achieve this triumph. She is 
the youngest winner of the title 
since the pioneering days of tire

aye advance warning of their 
mn for their .international 
matdr against Australia on Sat- 
urday .by th rashing Queensland 
yesterday. France ran in 10 tores 
to one as Queensland suffered 
their biggest defeat at home for 
more than a tfocade,. 

The French coach, Jacques 
Fouroux. said: “When we 
toured Australia in 1983 we 
learnt a new-game of rugby and 
we have been developing that 
ever since. “We even, have 
Australian names, for all our 
baddine moves — the wallaby, 
the kangaroo, - the. koala aim 
today we scored tries with all of 
them.”

The Australian coach Alan

assignment on Saturday but no 
team is unbeatable.'' Queens-,

“Not . everything went as

Phelps out of puff 
behind Soviet duo 


By Michael Coleman 

Richard Phelps wilted in the in tandem for the remainder of 

ihejwisting course round the 
lakeside wefl 


heal and wind of the National 
Exhibition Centre, Bir- 
mingham, yesterday when vic- 
tory was in his grasp over the 
final 4.000m cross-country race 
at the Birmingham Inter- 
national. Anatoly Starostin and 
Aleksandr Pudvkarevsky. the 
Russians, ran shoulder to shoul- 
der over the last kilometre to 
break the Briton. 

It was nevertheless a brilliant 
third place in tough company 
for Phelps, his 5,387 points final 
total comparing to the 5,445 
points of Starostin, the 1980 
Olympic champion and the 
sport's outstanding competitor, 
and Puchkarevsky’s 5,436 
points. 


Israel face up to the daunting 
task of curbing Bermuda at 
Aldridge today in the third 
round of games in the ICC 
trophy. 

Bermuda have been quick to 
show their substantial mettle 
with crushing wins over Fiji and 
Hoik Kong- Their batting and 
bowling combine power and 
penetration and their out cricket 


batsman who lives on a kibbutz, 
almost carried his bal through 
their inninp of 155. finally 
being dismissed offlhe third ball 
of the 60th over for 108.

Something must give in the 
Group Two fixture at Solihull 
where The Netherlands meet

The team event also fell to tire 
Soviet Union with Nikolai

to fifth place. With two other 
fine pentathtetes left back home, 
Aleksei Avdcyev and Igor 
Schwarts, selecting the Soviet 
team for the world champion- 
ships in Italy in August will be a 
headache. 

Thanks to a good shooting 
score of 191 by Phelps on 
Saturday, hugely encouraged by 
Tom Redhead, the national 
pistol coach, the Gloucester 
man took off in the handicap 
start cross country race 28.33sec 
behind the event leader at that 


stage. Puchkarevsky and 
back on Starostin. If be could 


catch those two he would win. 
Starostin quickly caught 
Puchkarevsky and the two ran 


NEC’s lakeside well aware 
Pitefos was in pursuit. 

Moving at three minutes per 
kilometre pace, Pbelps cut the 
gap to 17sec at two kilometres 
and the 13sec at three 
kilometres. “1 was charging my 
batteries for the final drive along 
the lake when suddenly my legs 
just hardened up,” _ & dis- 
appointed Phelps said. The 
Russians then eased away before 
Starostin gritted his teeth in the 
last 50m to claim victory. 

But Phelps's time of 12tnin 
38sec was fastest of the da 
compared to three second 
slower by Starostin and 
Pucfikarevsky’s 12miii 50sec 
Towards the rear of the field, 
Peter Hart, GB ‘A’ team, 
clocked I2min 41 sec, but his 
interest in the contest had 
expired on the first day when be 
missed a fence in tire jumping to 
lose 1,100 points. 

Phelps blamed too much 
recent competition for his sud- 
den fold -up; valuable training 
sessions bad been missed. He 
has the national title to contest 
in two weeks at Milton Keynes, 
a local event at Cheltenham and 
then the world championships 
in August where he will resume 
his battle .with the Russians, 
Poles. Italians and Hungarians, 
all of whom found the Bir- 
mingham contest sponsored by 
Birmingham 1992 Olympics, a 
much tougher battle than they 
had expected.

Steve Joughin confirmed his

racer on Saturday, ' despite 
finishing well down the fidkl in 
the final 1% of the Mkhetin 
Spring Cup at Norwich. 


Shane Sutton, of Australia, 
whose chances of the overall 
title were rained by a nasty crash 
at Northampton a few days 
earlier, won an exciting sprint 
finish with Glen Mitchell and 
Adrian Timmis, who finished 
second and third respectively. 
But that trio, who matte the 
decisive break just two laps 
from the end ofthe 40-lap race, 
posed no threat to Joughin, who 
knew be had only to finish 
ahead of Malcolm Elliott to take 
the cup. 


Joughin did just that, beating 
his dose rival by one place. He 
admitted: “II was very -hot and 
extremely bard work, but that 
break towards the end did me a 
massive favour. J knew 'Mal- 
colm really had to win to have 
any chance of overhauling me. 
But 1 still wanted to beat him 
just to make sure and I needed

scratch appearance. 

SHvio Novaes, the* Cowdray 
pivot, who has- been looking 
much more in tune lately with 
the Chilean ponies he rides from 
Lord Cowdrey’s yard, was the 
domi nant figure of tbe first half 
of th is six-chukka tussle. How- 
ever. when Cowdray were up 7-5 
towards the end ofthe fourth 
period, Novaes was thrown, 
kicked, and trampled on - and 
was taken to hospital. 

Brthell was the firet to score in 
the. fifth chukka. but be spoiled 
that triumph by then commit- 
tong two crosses, both of which 
resulted in.- penalty conversions

LEICESTER-- Leicestershire, 
wit h all second innings wickets 
in hand, lead India by 56 runs. 

Grace Road yesterday should 
have been the setting for an 

idyllic day's cricket. In the 
morning it was. As the sun 
shone, a large crowd basked in 
the heat and on the field 
Azharuddin and Vengsaricar 
batted quite superbly, two 
outstandingly talented busmen, 
revealing all their strokes in a 
blissful display. 

Sadly, however, as 
Azharuddin's innings ended and 
India declared immediately, the 
new ugly phenomenon of cricket 
hooliganism reared its head as a 
group of supporters surrounded 
his partner Sharma, Mows were 
struck and subsequently angry 
followers surrounded the pavil- 
ion shouting for the pace 
bowler, who did not reappear on 
police advice. Thereafter cricket 
took a back seat, which was sad 
after the pleasures of the 
morning. 

Azharuddin's innings was 
simply of ihe highest class. He 
batted in aD for 324 minutes, 
hitting 14 fours and one six in 
his 146, but more important 
than the dry statistics was the 
pleasure to be taken from watch- 
ing him bat. Even the unseemly 
incident coold not spoil that. 

It was. the kind of day in 
which bowlers earn their keep, 
and Leicestershire certainly did, 
Beniamin and Chft especially. 
They stuck at it in deeply 
unpromising c i rc um stances in 
the morning as Azharuddin and 
Vengsaricar thrived, to reap 
their reward subsequently. 

Benjamin had generated 
lively pace and bounce in his 
first session without any luck. 
He returned after lunch to 
remove Vengsaricar, who is also 
in a rich vein at the moment, a 
mistimed stroke giving Willey a 
comfortable catch at cover. 


Two balls later Srikkanft 
played over a yorker and with 
. AmamaUi soon retiring hurt 
with back trouble. Leicestershire 
had suddenly made real inroads 
into a formidable line-up. 

Azharuddin, however, was 
still in frill flow, bitting Agnew 
off the back foot for a memo- 
rable straight four, and moving 

to his century off- 176 balls to 
provoke an irritating minor 
invasion by half a dozen enthu- 
siasts- He himself celebrated 

mdre appropriately, ' hitting 

Willey straight for six and 
following it with a sweep, finely 
judged to bisect leg slip asd leg 
stump. 

His first false stroke came at

Middlesex put the opposition - 
in, as they tike to do on Sundays,

of runs as Moxon and Sharp 
amply demonstrated. They be-

little recourse to anything 
unorthodox. 

It was Yorkshire’s highest 
first-wicket stand in this com- 
petition for two years. Sharp 
made 52 off 75 deliveries, 
clearing the ‘ boundary three 
times, and Moxon an elegant 48. 
The following batsmen ought to 
have taken them on to a score 
around 250, but the acceleration 
was checked by some sharp 
catching.

Smith and Nicholas 
spoil day for Lever 

By Peter Marson 

Essex suffered their second Amiss held firm but Hum page, 


defeat in the John Player Speica] 


Chris Smith hit 75 and Mark 
Nicholas 53 in an unbroken 
stand of 104 for the fifth wicket. 

Having won the toss and 
chosen to bat, Gooch and 
Prichard provided Essex with a 
raring start at close on six runs 
an over. Then, despite a hiccup 
in mid innings. Border and 
Fletcher saw that this frantic 
pace was maintained through- 
out the innings, with Border 
making the top score of 75, and 
Fletcher next with 62. Not far 
behind were 36 extras, while 
Marshall, with two for 30 was 
the best of Hampshire's bowlers. 

Greenidge and the rest needed 
to go now at something akin to .- 
the same feverish pace, which 
was asking a lot- nevertheless 
they roared home with IS balls 
to spare as normally economical 
. Lever was tamed on the day he 
returned to the England side. 

Put* in to bat, Warwickshire 
made a faltering start at North- 
ampton, losing Uoyd with the 
score 18 and Kallicharran at 36. 


Smith and Ferreira failed to get 
going so that at 91. for five, 
Warwickshire were looking to 
Asif Din and the bowlers. Asif 
Dio was still there 24 not out 
when Warwickshire's innings 
dosed at 132 for eight. 
Northamptonshire's simple task 
was accomplished with room to 
spare. 

Gloucest e rshire's innings,too, 
suffered from a lamentable start 
as both Wright and Bainbridge 
were out with the scoreboard 
reading two for two, A they put 
his head down though to make a 
timely 56. and Curran and 
Tomlins made useful contribu- 
tions as Gloucestershire reached 
163 for seven. 

It was by no means enough, 

though, and with Anderson, 

Hill, Morris and Roberts mak- 
ing the runs Derbyshire chalked 
up their third victory with four 
balls to spare. 

At Old T rafford, Fowler made 
a hundred and Lloyd 64, as 
Lancashire answered an invita- 
tion to bat by making merry on 
the way to 249 for four, a target 
that proved well out of 
Worcestershire's range.

Kent fail 
to match 
Roebuck 

By Alan Gibson 

BATH: Somerset ( 4pts) beat 
Kent by 103 runs. 

It was a hot day, with the Bath 
ground packed, as it usually is 
For these Sunday capers what it 
does not rain. Never have 1 seen 
so many half-naked, pot-bellied, 
middle-aged' men within so 
small a compass. The cricket 
was also much as usual, a 
cheerful bash which nobody but 
small boys and some of their 
seniors took very seriously. 
Kent won the toss, or possibly 
Somerset did (opinions varied, 
and the public address system, 
true to Somerset form, was 
inaudible). 

Anyway, Somerset batted, 
and scored 244 for 7 in their 40 
overs. Roebuck; who is belying 
his reputation (partly self-im- 
posed) as a slow scorer laid the 
foundations. He reached his 50 
in the eighteenth over. Marks 
and Harden gave him brisk 
support, though it-was not to be 
one of Richards's days for 
concentration. Rose and Hardy, 
however, played excellently, the 
outfield was test, and by the end 
the Kent out-cricket was begin- 
ning to look a little frayed. It was 
a contented, if by now slightly 
sunburnt, crowd that went off 
for the cider when the bars 
opened. 

In the Kent innings Hinks was 
out almost at once, and Benson 
soon afterwards. Tavare and 
Taylor were the only pair who 
looked like giving them a 
chance, but Tavare was caught 
at mid wicket, the third wicket 
going down at 68, and Taylor 
was run out by Richards, field- 
ing his own bowling, making 8 
splendid stop and torn ing round 
like a top to throw down the 
bowler's wicket,' at 96. Thai 
proved to be pretty well the end 
of it, so fer as Kent were 
concerned. Nobody else could 
get going. The harder they rode 
the worse they fell, and they 
were still 103 behind when the 
match ended in the 31st oyer.

FOOTBALL: FIFA’S PRESIDENT DRAWS A FINE VEIL OVER THE MORE UNSAVOURY ASPECTS OF A STAINED WORLD CUP 


Scotland 
wrong 
in many 
ways 


Lack of technique 
in British teams 

isb dobs are able to embrace 

in their play, against a lack of 
technique compared with some 
foreign teams, are not so 
readily available within an 
international team with its 
restricted opportunity for 
practice. Scotland, has so 
often, had unlimited heart bnt 
they lack variation. Gough 
had a fine tournament but it is 
no use hoping for full backs to 
score your goals. 

Ferguson has achieved 
something remarkable m Scot- 
tish football, transferring pow- 
er from the west to east for the 
first time in 30 years. He has 
said he is not ready to take on 
the international team foil 
tune, and it is expected that 
his appointment trill now be 
terminated, even though there 
is some uncertainty about his 
continuing affection for Aber- 
deen. 1 believe be was offered 
the Job at Arsenal, but was 
unable to give a reply within 
the time spaa they needed. He 
wanted to see what happened 
in Mexico. 

Whatever his future, history 
will tend to indicate that in 
1986, in a wretched encounter 
with Uruguay, he misread the 
card after twice haring got it 
right He was, moreover, a 
pleasant and understanding 
man on the international 
scene, and engagingly positive 
in his derisions, right or 
wrong. 


Havelange makes sure 
nothing sticks in his 
world of make-believe 


DAVID. 

MILLER 


Scotland's justifiable anger 
at the beharionr of Uruguay, 
in the goalless draw that ended 
their World Cap campaign, is 
in danger of donding their 
judgment. They have returned 
home not so much as a 
consequence of Uruguay’s ulti- 
mate in gamesmanship as of 
their own inadequacies. It is 
upon those they should be 
reflecting. 

Quite simply, Alex Fergu- 
son, who had shown tactical 
judgment in the first two 
matches, now picked the 
wrong team, and the players 
were incapable of responding 
to the demands of defeating 10 
outstandingly clever oppo- 
nents who denied them the 
ball. 

Ferguson, in the heat of the 
moment, said afterwards that 
be was glad to be returning 
home. Bnt that is not a view 
which will be shared by most 
Scotsmen: certainly not by 
some of those in the squad 
travelling with him, including 
the captain. 

Graeme Sonness has said 
that it was always his intention 
to conclude his international 
career with this tournament, 
and that the second match 
against West Germany in 
Queretaro was one of the 
hardest, in terms of endurance, 
be had ever played. As player- 

Souness needed in 
reserve for Scots 

manager of Rangers, he has to 
be discreet in his comments, 
but be is known to have been 
dismayed at being dropped 
and not even being included on 
the bench. To ha ve had Belt as 
the only midfield reserve was 
one of several miscalculations. 

It would have made better 
sense to have started with 
Souness, or at least to have 
had his experience ready in 
reserve. McStay was out ofhis 
depth, and Ai tken never began 
to answer the problems posed 
by Uruguay's possession 
game. Scotland gave the ball 
away with inaccurate passing 
about as often as they won it. 

It was no improvement to 
inferodnce Sharp in place of 
Archibald. His positional . 
sense was poor, whereas 
Archibald is expert at pulling 
defenders about and still re- 
taining the baJL It was evident 
after only half an hour that 
Nicholas or Cooper should 
have been introduced from the 
bench in place of a defender. 
What was needed was width in 
attack, and technique. Nu- 
merical superiority was all too 
clearly no answer in itself. 

Ironically, this was possibly 
the one match of the three in 
which the physical stress on 
Sonness would have been the 
least, because of the slower 
pace at which Uruguay play. 
What was needed above all 
was tactical intelligence, and 
the absence of Souness, and 
even more of Hansen now 
became a glaring omission. 
Souness had privately been 
concerned about the absence of 
his former Liverpool colleague 
before the tournament began. 
Ferguson's preference for an 
entirely home-based defensive 
squad, apart from AJbiston, 
had its reasons, but was 
ultimately misplaced. Scottish 
club football is now so con- 
densed in quality among a few 
that the breadth of experience 
is unavoidably limited, never 
mind the European success of 
Aberdeen. 

What Ferguson has discov- 
ered, as England have, is that 
the compensations which Brit- 


From David Miller 

Mexico City 

Joao Havelange is such a 
master of diplomatic manoeu- 
vre. he ought to be a Russian, 
not a Brazilian. At the end of 
the first round of the World 
Cup. he gave a press confer- 
ence. Criticisms flew at him: 
of weak refereeing, mounting 
violence, rampant time-wast- 
ing. television failures, four 
defeated teams being able to 
qualify in third place for the 
second round, unwisely ap- 
pointed match supervisors, an 
invitation to a political crimi- 
nal. and his own financial 
involvement in the profits of 
competition. With the adroit- 
ness of a politician, for that is 
what he is, he deflected or 
denied everything. 

A president of FIFA with- 
out clothes, he remains, he 
confidently believes, the best 
dressed man in Mexico City. 
Faults? Ah. those must be 
referred to the various com- 
mittees. “No criticism will 
affect me." he stated. “I have 
my own principles and sense 
of’duty." 

The main news of the day, 
decided only an hour before- 
hand. was the disciplinary 
measures imposed on Uru- 
guay for their continuing cyni- 
cal disorder, on and off the 
pitch, against West Germany, 
Denmark and Scotland. Dr 
Havelange did not even men- 
tion it in his opening address. 
He does not like to be associat- 
ed with anything prickly. Uru- 
guay. he assured us. were his 
much loved neighbours. 

His opening remarks told us 
only of achievements. The 
“minor television problem" 
had been solved in two days, 
and there were goals and 
spectators galore. The feet that 
more than a quarter of the 
players so far selected had 
either been booked (82) or 
sent off (6) was proof that the 
referees were doing their job, 
he assured us. There was no 
concern that the players were 
out of hand. Any questions? 

Was it not improper, a 
Mexican journalist asked, for 
the president of the Uruguay- 
an federation hysterically to 
have condemned the Press for 
unfair criticism of the Uru- 
guayans? Dr Havelange said 
he required written confirma- 
tion of Uruguay's accusations. 
Laughter greeted this: the 
morning papers had little else. 
It was left to Hermann 



Neubeiger, of West Germany, 
chairman of the FIFA organiz- 
ing committee, to disclose that 
the Uruguayan federation had 
been cautioned, fined 25.000 
Swiss francs, threatened with 
expulsion if their disorder 
continued, and their manager, 
Omar Borras. banned from 
the bench against Argentina 
for calling the French referee, 
Quiniou. “a murderer.’' 

On violence. Dr Havelange 
said the referees were only 
human, and were abiding by 
the laws; that it was democrat- 
ic to select 36 referees from all 
six FIFA confederations, rath- 
er than merely the best refer- 
ees, “like it or not". He seems 
unmoved by the feci that 
referees are almost over- 
whelmed by foul play in some 
matches, having himself ap- 
pealed to die Press six months 
ago “to pillory lack of 
sportsmanship". 

Well, here goes. I have 
studied a dozen video replays 
of Batista's premeditated foul 
on Strachan, late and vicious, 
and Quiniou was utterly cor- 
rect. I only hope Agnolin, of 
Italy, is equally stringent in 
the U ruguay-Aigenti na match 
today, and that FIFA are true 
to their word. Only the sus- 
pension of a team will bring 
the tournament to its senses. 
Such action could even apply 
to the host team — I write this 
before their meeting yesterday 
with Bulgaria — though that 



Havelange: Unmoved 


extreme would. I fear, bring 
revolution on the streets. 

An unrepentant Borras was 
yesterday predicting a tough 
match with Argentina. It was. 
of coyrsc, inept to appoint an 
Argentinian overseer for 
Uruguay’s match with Scot- 
land, when Argentina were the 
next opponents, ' and Dr 
Havelange’s assurance that 
the overseer “had spoken no 
word against Uruguay" was 
less than convincing for the 
Uruguayan media, who are 
still filming and four of whom 
have been suspended from 
attending today’s match be- 
cause of their insulting behav- 
iour to FIFA officials 
following the Scotland fracas. 

What about Uruguay's 
time-wasting, Dr Havelange 
was asked, with more than a 
minute to take a goal kick? 
“Thank you for the hint this 
aspect is being examined," 
was the deflecting answer. 
Referees have in feet been 
uniformly inefficient in add- 
ing lost time, however many 
injuries and stoppages there 
have been. Are they working 
to television requirements? 

One of the unintentional 
tons mots has come from the 
commentator on an American 
television channel. “There is 
temporary transmission 
malfunction," he said during a 
hiccup, “but it’s not serious 
enough to stop the game." We 
are, indeed close to the time 
when that could become a 
reality. American coverage, 
indeed is so extensive and 
enthusiastic that it substanti- 
ates the belief that the United 
States could have staged a 
spectacular tournament had 
Dr Havelange not wanted it to 
be in Mexico. 

In answer to a question on 
alleged personal payments to 
him by Adidas/ISL — made 
this week by Der Spiegel - Dr 
Havelange replied “I will only 
smile: People can write what 
they like." He denied emphat- 
ically that be is commercially 
linked to Televisa Mexicans, 
but added “If I decided to do 
so it would be legitimate." 

Sitting beside him, 
Guillermo Canedo and Rafael 
Del Ruiz, the Mexican orga- 
nizers, smiled enigmatically. 
There were whistles when 
Canedo blandly said he had 
invited the ex-Argentinian 
colonel L acoste, a member of 
the 1978 organizing commit- 
tee and a condemned member 
of the junta. 



Poland are wary of Brazil 


Bahia Escondida ( AP) — In an 
apparent disciplinary action af- 
ter the 3-0 defeat against 
England the Polish manager. 
.Antoni Piechniczek, said that 
five players will be left in this 
lakeside resort near Monterrey 
when the team goes to Guada- 
lajara for the match against 
Brazil today. 

Piechniczek did not specify 
his reasons for dropping the 
players, who he named as the 
midfielders. Buncol and 
K.omomicki, the defender. 
Kubicbi, the forward, 
Zgutczynski and the reserve 
goalkeeper. Wandzik. 

Kubichi is nursing a 1% injury 
bu» ihe others are fiL The 
exclusion of Buncol one of the 
stars of the Polish team, is 
something of a sensation. The 
Legia of Warsaw player, aged 


26, has appeared in only one full 
World Cup match, ag ain st Mo- 
rocco; he was brought on against 
England last Wednesday when 
Poland were already three goals 
down. 

The seeded Polish team fin- 
ished third in Group F with 
three points, only narrowly 
qualifying for the second phase 
of the competition. 

Team sources reported yes- 
terday that the defender, 
Zmuda, aged 32, who is playing 
in his fourth finals, would not 
start the match against Brazil 
but could be fielded in the last 
stages of the match to equal the 
record of World Cup perfor- 
mances of the former West 
German forward. Uwe Seeler. 

Talking about the match 
against Brazil both Piechniczek 
and the team captain, Boniek, 


Mexico is all the 
rage in the slips 


There were no football 
matches to watch on Saturday, 
the sun shone, the panamas 
came out of their boxes and, as 
final proof of God's goodness, 
Tewin Irregulars beat the Brit- 
ish Council by four wickets. It 
was a gorgeous, chortling, 
domestic English day. Yet the 
talk at tea, in the bar afterwards 
and, ft shames me to say. in the 
slips during, was all of Mexico. 

The World Cup, after its 
hideoosly tentative start, its 
apparent certainty to become a 
four-week festival of fear, turned 
into a series of adventures in the 
second week. Now as we move 
into the third week, and the 
knock-out section — how splen- 
did it is to see the hack of this 
league staff — adventure is, let ns 
hope, a certainty for the next 
fortnight. 

At the Civil Service sports 
ground at Chiswick all you had 
to do to widen the cricket-smog 
smiles of die players was to say 
“Denmark”. ”Waso’t it 
fantastic?” “And yon couldn't 
have wished it to happen to a 
nastier bund than Uruguay.” 
Every paato seeds a villain to 
hiss and Uruguay — look belnd 
you, Mr Strachan! — play the 
part to perfection. Let ns hope 
that Maradona can slay them 
with his enchanted boots to- 
night: 

The competition has come 
alive from the most moribund of 
starts and the gloomiest of 
prognostications. So for football 
has beaten the thuggery. 
Footballers against thnss al- 
ways makes for riveting viewing 
and it is profoundly, elementally 
satisfying when the forces of 
righteousness triumph. Ah! the 
Danes — and was Laudrop’s best 
goal better than Elk jaer's best? 
Or that Brazilian goal — what 
about that? 

Wednesday night promises to 
give os three boots of the most 
compulsive television, with Den- 
mark -Spain on late, with 
Gokoecbea, the poor man's 
Uruguayan, playing the villain’s 
part. But before that we have 
Enghnd-Paraguay and a flwn* 
to scream ourselves cheerfully 
voiceless. 



WORLD CUP TV 


I remember that hideons 
match in Spain last time around 
when the second stage gave ns a 
second unwanted helping of 
dreary league football and En- 
gland had to beat Spain to go 
through. The match finished 0-0 
and E ng l and went out of the 
competition both undefeated and 
undistinguished. This time, with 
a proper knockout competition, 
we have so choice but to go down 
— when, or even it we go down — 
in a blaze of glory. 

As die beer hissed down hot 
throats in celebration of the 
Irregulars’ glorious victory the 
cricketers discussed the advan- 
tages of tiie four-mao midfield 
and bow Wilkins never does 
anythmg wrong bnt. on the other 
hand, never does anything right, 
and bow the Scots once again 
blew up (“Well at least Speedie 
would have made it more 
interesting.” “And Nevin.” 
“Let's face it, they bottled it.”). 
It was a fine conclusion to a fine 
week of sport. 

But as we prepared to depart 
(“Thanks for the game, pity 
your Jaidinesqne cricket was 
defeated by oar own indomitable 
spirit”) everyone was looking 
forward to another week of late- 
night trie vised treats. The game 
offootbail is at least as indom- 
itable as the spirit of the mighty 
Irregulars: despite villainous 
coaches and c n arhed villains, 
there are moments of skill that 
beep ft a beautiful game. 

I hope I am still writing this 
sort of stuff in a fortnight's time. 
“Well, we beat those British 
Council guys aB right, eh?” 
“What about those Danes?” 
“Great” “What about another 
pint?” “Bloody marvellous.” 


believed that the South Ameri- 
can team should be heavily 
favoured. 

“It is possible that we will be 
more efficient when playing at 
high altitude and in fresher 
weather. However, we are going 
to face one of the most powerful 
teams in the tournament,” 

Piechniczek said. 

“There is no doubt that Brazil 
are in a better psychological aDd 
physical condition than 
Poland,” Boniek said. “But it's a 
knock-out match and anything 
could still happen.” 

Nevertheless, the atitnde in 
the Polish camp towards the 
game today cannot be said to be 
brimming over with confidence. 
A flight home has already been 
tentatively booked for the 
weekend.

Today’s games 

Second round 


n _ Poland v BrazS (Guadalajara, 7,01. 

S im on flames Argentina v Uruguay (Puebla, 11.0). 


The dossier on Paraguay has 
been delivered to Bobby Robson. 
His two spies, Dave Sexton and 
Howard Wilkinson, have exam- 
ined the strength and weak- 
nesses of England's opponents 
in the second round, or the 
eighth finals as they are of- 
ficially known, bat the squad has 
yet to be told of the detafis. 

They may never hear the fan 
extent of the repeat. Robson, 
who has yet to choose the 
appropriate n uui eet to CeU the 
rele v en t players, win sketch in 
only the ootimes rather than 
paint the c omple t e, picture. 
There is little potat, be says, in 
pouring too mach inhibiting 
information Into his ride. 

Yet be himself has been 
offered a deep Insight into all the 
intricacies and the idiosyn- 
crasies of the Paraguayans. 
Sexton, who was put ia charge of 
looking at thdr attack, and 
Wilkinson, who kept both of his 
eyes on their defence, watched 
nil three of their games in Group 
B and has compiled an extensive 
series of comments. 

Both of them have e n d ed their 
riptioas with a note of 
They expect England 
fo win in die Azteca stadimn on 
Wednesday. “Paraguay is a very 
interesting attacking side,” Sex- 
ton has written. “They use two 
wingers oat wide and, with the 
No. 9 as their centre forward, 
theyare dangerous. 

“They have gamine pace «p 
front and they csoss particularly 
welL They attack those crosses 
with real determination and they 
are much braver and more 
powerful in the air than most 
teams of their kind, t particu- 
larly like the No. 9, Roberto 
Cabadas, who scored both of 
their goals against the Belgians. 

“Their No. 8, Julio Romero, 
is their star. He is dangerous 
when he Joins the attack. He 
plays fairly free and has a 
prolific 

Fenwick’s stand-in 
is a vital selection 

goal-scoring record. Their 
No. 10,' Adoffina Canete, is 
prominent in midfield and their 
offensive qualities will present a 
threat at times. They wifi set 
different problems for oar 
defence. 

“With theft two wide players, 
they are not the same as a 
typical domestic front line. They 
have the nsnal high level of 
South American technique and 
thdr speed and skfil makes the 
choke of Terry Butcher’s part- 
ner, in the absence of Terry 
Fenwick, an important 
derision.” It is, incidentally, 
between Martin and Stevens, of 
Tottenham Hotspur. 

“Although they have the 
Latin temperament,” Sexton 
went on, “they have a strong 
spirit and their beads wiD not go 
down if they are in trouble. We 
won’t beat them simply by 
frustrating them.” He printed 

Referees given 
extra time 

Mexico City (AP) - All 36 
referees will Slay for the rest of 
the World Cup. al thou gh the 
international body. FTFA, were 
expected to excuse the 20 who 
obtained the lowest marks in the 
first round. 

‘“This is the Year of the 
Referee, so we decided an of 
them should stay on,” Harry 
Cavan, chairman of FIFA’s 
referees committee, said. “The 
standard has be e n reasonably 
good. What must be condemned 
is the misconduct of the players 
— 82 were booked and six were 
sent off.” 

Alexis Ponnet. of Belgium, 
heavily criticized for sending off 
Jose Batista, of Uruguay, in the 
first minute against Scotland, 
has been included among the 
officials for the second round. 

• Frank Aroesen, the Danish 
midfield player who was sent off 
against West Germany in 
Friday's Group £ match, said at 
the weekend that his actions 
were "very stupid but not really 
serious.” Arnesen, aged 29. was 
expelled by Belgian referee Alex 
Ponnet with less than one 
minute remaining after kicking 
thrWesl German .midfielder 
Lothar Mauhaeus. 


Hopes are high as long as 
Robson’s squad is fit and, more 
to the print, rested. After Bring 
to the expansive lap of Inxuy in 
Colorado Springs and at 
Monterrey, they have come 
down in the world (albeit up in 
altitude). Their hotel on the 
outskirts of the capital dty has 
uo air conditioning and is de- 
signed for insomniacs. Car spot- 
ters who are eager to stay awake 
worid particularly enjoy staying 
there. The building lies directly 
between two main roads and the 
ooise of the traffic b so kmif and 
so constant that some players 
have been restricted to no more 
than a couple of hours sleep a 
night. A move * is bring 
discussed. 

Three of the party have at 
least been allowed to relax 
daring the day. Because of slight 
knee trouble. Batcher was ex- 
cused from training ou Saturday 
and so were Fenwick and Ste- 
vens, of Everton, both of whom 
are suffering from groin str a in s. 
Apart from that, E ngland' s ar- 
rival in Mexico Gty has gone 
smoothly so far. 


Shoot-outs could 
become feature 
of the World Cup 


Mexico City (Reuter) — The 
penalty shoot-out. seen only 
once before m the World, Cujx 
may become a, recurring and 
controversial feature of the 1986 
finals. The introduction of a 
knockout competition after the 
prrihnihaiy group matches and 
the needs of television mean 
ihar any of the. re m a inin g 16 
games may be decided by 
-penalties. 

Even the final in the Azteca 
stadium on June 29 could 
feature a shoot-out, although 
one observer, reflecting on the 
furore that would follow such a 
summar y climax to the gamers 
showpiece match, sank “The 
first u me the World Cup final is 
decided this way will be the 
last.” The 1982 semi-final be- 
tween West Germany and 
France, the only World Cup 
match so far to have catte d in 
penalties; was widely regarded 
as a shabby end to a bold and 
exciting French challenge. 

In recent finals Jhe second 
stage has involved another 
round of group matches. But the 
group format has tended to 


encourage teams to manoeuvre 
for convenient results rath e r 
than go all-out for victory and 
the International Football 
Fe der ation hope the knockout 
formula win put an cod to this. 

Before penal ties become op- 
erative. there will be 30 minutes 
of extra time in games that are 
level after 90 mmoles. ft is a 
prospect that will c ause m ost of 
the players some distress given 
that Mexico's heat and altitude 

ha ve already taxed theft stanuna 

to the limit. 

Notable exceptions, however, 
are the Moroccans who see a 
protracted match against West 
Germany in the broiling beat of 
Monterrey on Tuesday as their 
best chance of upsetting the 
1954 and 1974 champions. 

Jeovaa .Vieira, a Brazilian 
member of Mornooo's coaching 
team, said: “Yon may have 
noticed that our players are the 
only ones in the entire com- 
petition who only drink when 
the match is over. *T am 
confident that we win be draw- 
ing at die end of regular time. If 
so. it’s a promise, we will kiB the 
Germans in extra time.”

H Cerrito (AP) - King 
Hassan I! of Morocco, a keen 
supporter ofhis country's Worid 
Cup team, has asked tbe players 
to produce another exceflent 
performance in the second 
round of the competition 
against West Germany. A top 
ranking team official Antaki 
Abdallah, said the king has also 
promised royal celebrations for 
the players on their return 
home. 

The king telephoned team 
official to congratulate them 
shortly after Morocco had upset 
Portugal 3-1 to gain a sensa- 
tional first place in .Group F, 
ahead of England and Poland. 
Morocco became the first Af- 
rican team ever to qualify for the 

second phase of the Worid Ctp 
and now play West Germany in 
Monterrey. 

Team officials reported that 
Morocco’s qualifying victory 


against Portugal prompted mas- 
sive street celebrations in the 
capital Rabat, and in several 
outer Moroccan cities. 

Morocco have surprised 
everybody. They started tank 
outsiders but have displayed a 
tough defence and an ex c ellent 
midfield under the direction of 
tbe Brazilian coach, lose Faria. 

Zbigniew Boniek. the Polish 
capiam,' predicted the Moroc- 
cans had a definite chance of 
beating West Germany. “They 
play good football and could 
upset the Germans. Morocco 
has a tough defence and could 
also benefit from hot weather, to 
which West Germans are not 
used.” he said. 

Morocco played two of their 
three Group F matches in 
Monterrey, the hottest and low- 
est venue of the World Cup, 
while the Germans were based 
in Queretaro. 


Bearzot may change 
World Cup squad 


The Italian coach. Enzo 
Bearzot, has hinted that tactical 
changes might have to be made 
to contain France’s midfield 
players in tbe second round of 
the World Cup tomorrow. 

“I never change much,” he 
said, “but 1 have been studying 
tiie game against Fiance to find 
the right way of playrag-against 
the strongest mtdfirid in the 
world." ’ . . . 

With France haying four, su- 
perb players in the middle, 
Bearzot said: “You cannot stop 
them individually, you need a 
lactic to beat the whole team.” 

Tbe French midfield players 
are Platini, Giresse, Tigana and 
Fernandez. 

“I must be vague at this stage 
on my team's line-up and 
tactics, but I can say that 
Bergomi will play and that I will 
not be dropping a striker ” tbe 

IQBR^CT pjfl. 

The defender. Bergomi, had 
to sit oat a one-game suspension 
against South Korea after 
collecting two bookings in two 
first-round matches. Italy won 
3-2. Italian sport writers, never 
shy about taking suggestions on 
team tactics, are urging Bearzot 
to use one forward — the 
competition's top scorer. 
Altobdli — and a reinforced 
midfield to stop France. 

But Bearzot has rejected the 
suggestion. “If I pull out a 
forward it will mean drawing 
France closer to our goalmouth. 
They play with two strikers and 
we play with two: I am not going 
to change this.” 

Bearzot believes that if Italy 
are to beat France, they must 
“not only strip them bot keep 
our own scoring chances alive. 
We cannot play for a draw in a 

direct eliminating game.” 

The Italian knows that the 
midfield has made France a 
superb team, carrying them to 
their frrstintemational triumph, 
the European championships in 
1984, 

“They have class, ideas: stam- 
ina and speed and I cannot see 
an single weak n ess in the whole 
team.” he said. He knows that 
France’s defence is “airtight, 
with a good goalkeeper, two 
strong defenders on the sides 
and two formidable and experi- 
enced men in the centre”. 


The French have kept their 
defence and midfield intact but 
made changes ra the forward 
line “because they move back 
and forth raid can get tired. 

“Argentina’s midfield against 
us was even more crowded, it 
was a human barrier of men. 
The French don't need to pack it 
that much because they have the 
class to get you in trouble with 
any of their players.” 

Opening round 
matches 
seen by 1.3m 

Mexico City (AP) — The 
World Cup organizers said on 
Saturday that more than 1.3 
million people attended the 36 
matches of the tournament's 
first round, an average of about 

38.000 a game. 

Mexico attracted the. largest 
crowds, playing before a total of 
333,363 fans in three maiches at 
the Azteca stadium — an average 
of 1 1 1,000 per match. 

But oddly in a tournament 
involving most of the game's 
traditional powers., it was Bul- 
garia who attracted the . second 
highest number of people — 

205.000 fans in their three 
matches. 

The Bulgarians, stifl without a 
win in five World Cups but a 
second-round qualifier, had the 
advantage of playing all three 
games in Mexico City, including 
the opener against defending 
■champion Italy,' which drew 

95.000 fans. 

Mexico had the tournament’s 
largest crowd of 1 14,600 for a 
match with Paraguay. Tbe host - 
team also played before 1 10,000 
in their 2-1 opening win over 
Belgium, and 108,763 in their 
final 1-0 wm over Iraq. 

The smallest crowd was re- 
corded in lrapuato, whir only 
13.800 people watched Canada 
lose 2-0 to Hungary. Both teams 
failed to advance to the second 
round. The. secondnsmallest 
crowd, also in lrapuato, watched 
the Soviet Union best Canada 2-

Injury forces 


Connors to 


retire in final 


By Rex Bellamy. Tennis Correspondent 

Tim Mayotte was leading 6- Wimbledon and lam going to on two other occasions, and 


4. 2-1 when Jimmy Connors 
retired from the singles final of 
the Stella Artois champion- 
ships. at Queen's Gub yester- 
day. Connors strained a groin 
muscle on Saturday and after 
five games of the final it 
became progressively more 
evident that he was playing 
under loo much of a handicap 
to win and that, with Wimble- 
don only a week away, it 
would be foolish to risk aggra- 
vating the damage. 

It may also be foolish to put 
much money on Connors at 
Wimbledon. He is only three 
months away from his 34th 
birthday and. this past week, 
was resuming competition af- 
ter a 10-week suspension. He 
won five matches in straight 
sets and. in the process. looked 
impressively sharp and fit. But 
he could not last the course — 
and Wimbledon will be a 
longer and tougher ordeaL 

"Coming here and playing 
so many matches and getting 
to the final has been excellent 
for me." Connors said after 
the final. "If I was not up to 
par or did not get enough 
match play. I was going to play 
Bristol.” His injury occurred 
when Connors, playing Rob- 
ert Seguso. was under pressure 
at the back of the court and bis 
legs splayed out as he put up a 
lob. "I was hot at the time and 
it did not bother me. But after 
the match I was stiff and sore 
and had treatment Today I 
could hit one shot and gel my 
returns down low, but after 
that I couldn't move. It is not 
fair to me. to Mayone or to the 
people if I can't play the tennis 
I am capable of playing. 

“I want to stay over here 
and see how it goes. I don't 
want to play if Pm not 1 00 per 
cent but you know me ... I 
have a week's rest before 


see a doctor on Tuesday. He 
may say I can play on Wednes- 
day or be may advise a 
complete rest I shall just have 
to wait and see.” 


The fact that Connors made 
such an admirable, yet ulti- 
mately worrying, return to 
competition tended to over- 
shadow the achievements of 
Mayoue, whose last three 
victims were grass-court spe- 
cialists: Boris Becker (Wim- 
bledon champion). Stefan 
Ed berg (Australian champion) 
and Connors, former Wimble- 
don. United States and Aus- 
tralian champion. 

Mayotte's coach recently 
put him through a six-week 
conditioning programme. The 
idea. Mayotte said yesterday, 
was to make him quicker and 
stronger "Movement is the 
key. Against the top guys, you

The sky was a spotless blue- 
grey, the temperature on court 
more than 100 degrees Fahr- 
enheit, though the flags on the 
high perimeter of the arena 
were rippling in a breeze 
denied to the players. These 
championships, like Queen’s 
Gub itself, become bigger and 
better and more congenial 
every year. Now we were 
offered the first 1986 Grand 
Prix final between the players 
bom in the United States (how 
limes have changed). The 
players provided an inviting 
contrast in personality and 
playing methods, with the 
extrovert Connors nimble and 
busy and blasting away with 
service returns and passing 
shots that nobody else can 
match, and the introvert 
Mayotte looking stem and 
strong and relentlessly con- 
centrating on short points. 


have to cover the court This is 
a big breakthrough for me — 
psychologically more than 
anything else. When 1 won the 
title at Delray, I didn't beat 
any of the top players.” He 
was referring to the only 
previous occasion on which he 
has won a tournament in the 
Nabisco Grand Prix circuit in 
Florida last year. 

Mayotte has a good record 
at Wimbledon. In five chal- 
lenges he has reached the 
semi-finals once, the quarters 


The spendour of Connors 
has been based — and with 
luck will continue to be based 
- on the anticipation and fast 
footwork that gets him into 
position with time to spare for 
exemplary stroke-preparation. 
Take the speed away from 
him, as was eventually the 
case yesterday, and he be- 
comes merely a very good 
player. But give Mayotte cred- 
it. In the five games that 
proceeded obvious signs of a 
Connors' handicap, Connors 
had four break points and 
Mayotte two — but Mayotte 
achieved the only break. 


EQUESTRIANISM 


Mrs Edgar lifts title again 
for double family triumph 


Liz Edgar, riding the Count- 
ess of Inchcape's inexperi- 
enced Everest Rapier, won the 
Next Ladies' Championship 
for the Queen Elizabeth II Cup 
for the fifth time at the Royal 
International Horse Show at 
Birmingham's National Exhi- 
bition Centre yesterday. Her 
record equals that of her 
brother. David Broome, in the 
men's equivalent champion- 
ship, The King George V Cup. 

In a double training tri- 
umph for Mrs Edgar's bus- 
band, Ted, his young Dutch 
protegee. Arts Rouweler. fin- 
ished runner-up on Olympic 
Dominica, whose superb 
jumping yesterday paid hand- 


By Jenny MacArthur 

some tribute to the three 
months spent training at Ted 
Edgar's Warwickshire stud. 
Veronique Whitaker, the win- 
ner of the competition in 1984 
took third place on Jingo. 


Although Mrs Edgar had 
always had the seven-year-old 
Everest Rapier "lined up” for 
the Queen Elizabeth she sud- 
denly thought yesterday that 
she ought to be riding Everest 
Forever on whom she has won 
the cup three limes. (Her other 
win came on Everest Walla- 
by). “It was Ted who said slay 
with Rapier," Mrs Edgar 
said“He’s such a careful 
jumper inside.”

She certainly needed to be' 
so yesterday. Victory came 
after a slow but clear final 
round against the clock — the 
same manner in which John 
Whitaker and Ryan’s Son won 
the King George V Cup on 
Friday night. 

Five horses reached the 
second round in which last 
year’s winner. Sue Pountain 
with Ned Kelly, winners on 
the opening day of the show, 
bowed out after hitting the 
first part of the double. An- 
nette Lewis on her bouncy 
grey gelding Tuiein also went 
out with four faults — leaving 
Mrs Edgar. Miss Rouweler 
and Mrs Whitaker to fight it 
out against ttae clock. 

Miss Rouweler. the first to 
go, jumped fluently and confi- 
dently but bit the same up- 
right which had caught out 
Miss Lewis in the previous 
round. Mis Whitaker, surpris- 
ingly hit the first fence and 
then opted for a slow, but 
otherwise faultless round. Mrs 
Edgar decided to gamble all on 
a slow dear. The German bred 
gelding, who won the grand 
prix at Names in France a 
month a©), never looked in 
any danger of hitting a fence — 
his careful jumping reflecting 
the hours of patient schooling 
which Mrs Edgar, a perfec- 
tionist has spent on him. 

John Whitaker is unlikely to 
have another Royal Interna- 
tional to compare with this 
one. Six wins have netted him 
nearly £19,000 in prize money 
if one includes the value of the 
Maesiro car he won on Sam 
Salvador in the Austin Rover 
Jump and Drive Chase on 
Saturday night. 

San Salvador was responsi- 
ble for three other good speed 
wins. Whitaker bad two spec- 
tacular successes, on Friday in 
the King George V and on 
Saturday in the Everest Dou- 
ble Glazing Grand Prix in 
which his sympathetic han- 
dling of the eight-year-old. 
Next Milton, was a fine tribute 
to the late Caroline Bradley, 
who had the horse as a novice 
and whose parents still own 
him. The last one came yester- 
day afternoon in the Lombard

the last I6ineach ofhis“bad” 
years. Yesterday nothing was 
more admirable, especially 
when he was in the forecourt, 
than the quickness of his 
reactions, the assurance with 
which he controlled the racket 
head, and the suppleness with 
which he bent his large frame.

ATHLETICS 


in race 


By Barry PkkthaU 

A collision with a basking 
whale may well have robbed 
Tony Baltimore i rf his chance 
of victory in the Carlsberg 
transatlantic race. 

The mammal, just one of 
many hazar ds fa ring the 43 
two-man crews as the leaders 
reached the third-way stage 
towards Newport this week- 
end, was rudely awoken by the 
speeding trimaran on Satur- 
day morning, shortly before 
Baltimore and Walter Green, 
his American crewman, were 
plotted in the lead, 33 miles 
ahead of Royale, the French 
85-ft catamaran skippered by 
Loic Caradec. Both creature 
and boat sustained damage — 
the whale leaving a trad of 
blood after- ripping away the 
leading edge of Apricot's 
centreboard. 

With winds expected to 
swing to the south last night, 
the strong reaching conditions 
witi place less pressure on the 
British trimaran's suspect fio3 
through the jagged leading 
edge is certain to slow her 
down.

guiding this 60ft mosohull 
over the remaining 2,000 miles 
to Newport with the emergen- 
cy tiller. 

There was no position re- 
port yesterday from Royale, so 
race organisers placed Robin 
Knox Johnston’s British Air- 
ways L which had covered 
1,201 miles by noon in the 
lead, even though the French 
catamaran, which held a 47- 
mile advantage on Saturday, 
was expected to be benefitting 
most from the changing condi- 
tions. Yesterday's reports con- 
firmed that Apricot had 
slipped to third having lost 40 
miles on Voortrekker. 

Goser to hone, the balmy 
conditions experienced 
throughout Britain over the 
weekend should lead to a 
record number of dental ap- 
pointments this morning as 
crews competing in three 
RORC races return home a 
day late. 

Race officers controlling the 
160-mile Irish Sea race from 
Pwllheli to Howth In Ireland, 
and the 223-mile de Gmngand 
Bow! race from the Solent to 
Brixham and back, a selection 
trial for both the One Ton Cop 
and Sardinia Cap. were both 
expecting finishing boats 

throughout the night. 

Only the east coast sailois 
competing in the North Sea 
Race from West Mersey to 
Breskens managed to com- 
plete their coarse at a decent 
hour. The 186-mile race, also 
beset by light winds and strong 
tides was won by the Class 
Four entry, Fiona of Branham, 
an ex-102 skippered by D 
G eaves. 

Back on the south coast 68 
crews set oat from Torquay oa

Cram and Coe get ready 
for Edinburgh title bid

pride ot 
place this weekend for being 
the only one to compete in the 
three British international 
champions beset by injury 
problems with selection com- 
ing up next week for the 
Commonwealth Games. 

Cram and Sebastian Coe 
both wish to "double” at 800- 
1500m in Edinburgh, and 
were told, at least the selectors 
say the athletes were told that 
a good run at either of those 
distances for both athletes in 
the AAA championships at 
Crystal Palace next weekend 
would mean that their wishes 
would be honoured. That is 
the least that should be afford- 
ed reigning Olympic and 
World champions, who are 
both world record breakers at 
those distances. 

Cram’s recent thigh injury 
barely troubled him yesterday 
when he won the 800m at the 
Townsend Thoresen Trophy 
meeting in Ipswich, and he 
pronounced himself well 
pleased with his time of 
1:46.2s in windy conditions, 
and ready to run the same 
distance at Crystal Palace. 

But Coe foiled to turn up for 
the GRE British League match 
at Hendon, citing a slight 
ankle niggle. But his problems 
do not end there: For, having 
said prior to last weekend that 
he did not feel fit enough to 
run beat and final in the AAA 
championships this weekend, 
and would prefer to run a fast 
1500m in Stockholm on July 1 
as proof to the selectors of his 
capacity to run both races in 
Edinburgh, the selectors have 
responded by saying that be 
must run this weekend if be 
wishes to be selected for the 
'double'. 

Allan Wells is - the third 
British champion, with 
enough problems to go round 
half a dozen. With Wells, it 
seems more a problem of a 


state of mind rather than 
body. It is easy to characterize 
sprinters as nervous whippet- 
types perennially on edge, 
perhaps doe to the guillotine 
that hangs over them every 
tim e they settle on their 
starting blocks, knowing that 
the slightest error can contrib- 
ute largely to defeat. But after 
years of nurturing such fear of 
defeat, Wells seems to have

Mixed fortune 
for Thompson 


Daley Thompson, Britain’s 
Olympic decathlon riwipinn, 
polled ont of die high hurdles 
race at the GRE British 
Athletics League division one 
match at Copthall Barnet 
stadium yesterday, complain- 
ing he had been distracted by a 
group of youngsters near the 
start. 

Thompson, who defends 
his European and Common- 
wealth titles over the next two 
months, was competing for 
Newham and Essex Beagles, 
hut an appeal to have the race 
— won by Wilbert Greaves of 
Haringey in I4.11sec— re-ran 
was turned down. Some conso- 
lation for Thompson came in 
the pole vault when he record- 
ed a lifetime best, dealing 
5.25m and finished runner-up 
to Keith Stock, the United 
Kingdom record-holder, who 
cleared 535m. 


100m. His further claim 
ihat,"there's not really any- 
body to run against,” was 
immediately contradicted 
when Elliott Bunney, last 
year’s European Junior cham- 
pion ran a superb 1030 
seconds personal best to win 
from his even youngs' train- 
ing partner. Jamie Henderson, 
17, who also ran a personal 
best of 1033. Wells also 
implied that his four gold 
medals should be sufficient to 
gain him selection but the last 
of those was fburyeais ago in 
the Commonwealth Games in 
Brisbane, and the chair man of 
selectors told Wells that he 
would only have an extension 
until a race in Madrid next 
Friday 7 night If be does not 
run, he will not be selected.

by Mexicans 


Cram said after his victori- 
ous race that the muscle tear 
in his left side, although 
healed was still- preventing 
him being completely relaxed 
while racing, but he conceded 
that die late start to his season, 
prompted by the injury could 
only do him good if he faced 
no further problems. 


inflated it to a fear of failure 
altogether. He did not turn out 
for the Scottish sprint champi- 
onships on Saturday, having 
had the whole of the last year, 
advertised by the Scottish 
selectors as the period in 
which to prove fitness. In feet, 
Wells has not raced anything 
other than a sprint relay leg 
and an indoor 60m since the 
Olympic Games in Los Ange- 
ls two years ago. ... 


There was more success for 
his young training partner, 
David Sharpe, who was a dose 
second to Gam in a personal 
best of 1.46.8. Thai is the 
fourth best ever British junior 
time, and Sharpe looks to be 
peaking perfectly for next 
month's inaugural World Ju- 
nior championships, but he 
also intends to run the AAA 
800m, and could still cause 
Cram selection problems. 
Darren Clarke of Australia ran 
a fine 32.9 seconds into the 
wind ar Ipswich, and looks set 
for his fourth straight AAA 
400mlitle.
