The likelihood of some kind 
of reprisal against Britain by 
black Commonwealth states 
was increased yesterday when 
Sir Geoffrey Howe, the For- 
eign Secretary, made it plain 
tharf despite the rhetoric of the 
EEC summit agreement last 
week the British Government 
was still reluctant to imple- 
ment any economic sanctions 
against Sooth Africa. 

Black Commonwealth lead- 
ers, including Sir Sunny 
Ramphak the Secretary-Gen- 
eral of- the Commonwealth, 
issued statements which re- 
vealed an increasing lack of 
patience with the present posi- 
tion ofthe Government 

At. the same time Sir Geof- 
frey.'m the teeth of the limited 
undertaking of the EEC sum- 
mit last , week, continued to 
maintain that any form of 
. sanctions against South Africa 
was not what the Thatcher 
Government thought desir- 
able. Y 

There was an increasing 
note- of irritation in the com- 
ments ofthe Commonwealth 
leaden. Sir Sunny condemned 
the time-month breathing 
space which Mrs Thatcher 
won for the South African 
Government at last week's 
summit in The Hague 

The -Common wealth would 
have. no. part of the EECs 
equivocation over apartheid,

Guyana to attend a meeting of 
Caribbean heads of gov- 
ernment. 

“Hie. Community's deci-

sion . . . was both misguided 
and contradictory and the 
world, including many Euro- 
peans, will not acquiesce in 
it," he said. 

It is known that last week 
the Commonwealth Secretary 
met the Queen in a r outine 

Between 15,000 and 20,000 
people yesterday attended a 
rally in Soweto called by Chief 
Gats ha Bothelezi, the Zulu 
leader. It was the biggest 
political rally in South Africa 
since tbe state of emergency 
was declared. Page 5

pre-summit briefing and

member nations and the dan- 
ger to the unity of the Com- 
monwealth from the position 
of the Thatcher government 

He is said to have empha- 
sized the possibility of retalia- 
tory measures against Britain. 

Some reports maintain that 
he actually asked the Queen to 
intervene and ask Mrs That- 
cher to think again and that 
the Queen responded with 
some sympathy. 

In Zambia. President Ka- 
unda said on Saturday that be 
was beginning to suspect that 
some Western leaders were 
refusing to impose sanctions 
because they were motivated 
by racism. 

Mr Kaunda has said in the 
past that he would pull Zam- 


bia out of the Commonwealth 
if the British Government did 
not agree to sanctions at the 
next meeting of Common- 
wealth states in London in 
August. 

Yesterday Mr Denis Heal- 
ey, the shadow Foreign Secre- 
tary, who was in Lusaka to 
meet the Zambian president 
after his four-day visit to 
South Africa, said: “1 don't 
think it would be fair to 
assume that it's bluff or any- 
thing tike that.” 

Diplomatic sources in Lon- 
don were yesterday reporting 
mounting dissatisfaction am- 
ong leading members of the 49 
nations of the Common- 
wealth. 

Countries like Nigeria and 
India were privately said to be 
munnuring about the possibil- 
ity of imposing trade and 
business restrictions on Brit- 
ish companies which, in many 
cases, enjoy privileged status 
in Commonwealth countries. 

Other member states were 
speaking ofbreakiog off diplo- 
matic relations with Britain or 
at feast lowering tbe levels of 
diplomatic representation. 

The matter is expected to 
come to a head at the Com- 
monwealth mini-summit in 
London early in August 
The irritation of the Com- 
monwealth leaders will only 
be fuelled by Sir Geoffrey 
Howe's comments yesterday. 

In an interview on BBC 
Radio 4, he said of the South 
African Government: “We

Argentina 
defeat 
Germany

ARGENTINA 3 
WEST GERMANY 2 

Argentina are tbe new 
World Cup champions after 
beating West Germany 3-2 in 
a fiercely competitive final in 
tbe Azteca Stadium in Mexico 
City yesterday. * 

An error by Schnmacher, 
the German goalkeeper and 
captain, let (town his side's 
tactical planning when he 
misjudged a free-kick allowing 
Brown, the Argentinian num- 
ber five, to bead into an empty- 
net after 22 inmates.

But with only six minutes to 
go, Barruchaga for Argentina 
broke through the German 
defence to score tbe third and 
winning goal. 

A total of seven players 
made it into tbe referee's book, 
including Maradona and 
Matthaus, with four yellow- 
cards being shewn in a frantic

The South Americans en- 
joyed most of the attacking

proving more than a one-man 
team as Maradona's immense 
talents were kept in check by 
Matthaus. 

Maradona's failure to score 
made England's Gary Line leer

Labour leaders are angry 
over what they see as an 
attempt by. Mr Tony Benn to 
sabotage the party's plans for 
industrial relations law 
changes to improve the rights 
of workers (Philip Webster, 
Chief Political Correspon- 
dent, writes).' 

Although tbe proposals .are 
at an early stage, senior figures 
on botb the left and rigfrt of 
the labour movement are in 
broad agreement with plans 
which would require unions to 
hold pre-suike ballots and 
regular secret ballots for union 
executives. ’ 

Union members denied a 


pre-strike ballot or an oppor- 
tunity to vote for their execu- 
tive could complain to an 
independent body. 

The proposals — contained 
in a document People ai 
Work: New Rights. New Re- 
sponsibilities — received gen- 
era} endorsements at the 
TUC-Labour Party liaison 
committee last week, although 
there is still scope for consid- . 
enable amendment ' 

Only Mr Benn and Mr Eric 
Hefler, the former Labour 
chairman, were - reported to 
have put up strong opposition. 
Mr Benn is reported to have 
been arguing since then that 


the document is worse than In 
Place of Strife. Mrs Barbara 
Castle's iil-fated proposals for 
placing restrictions on striking 
unions. 

He is said to have claimed * 
the proposals are so draconian 
that they would involve 
unions losing their tax relief 
and other legal benefits if they 
refuse to hold a ballot 

“It is a scare campaign”, a 
senior Labour source said last 
night. “As on so many other 
issues Mr Benn and Mr Hefler 
are out of step with their 
colleagues on the Left and 
they are trying to stir up 
trouble.” 


written to President Reagan 
offering a compromise to 
speed up agreement on inter- 
mediate nuclear forces. The 
Soviet leader has hinted that 
the US could leave some of its 
Pershing 2 and cruise missiles 
in Western Europe and else- 
where if the Soviet Union was 
allowed to keep an equal 
number in Europe and Asia. 

Administration officials 
said the offer was promising. 
Mr Reagan received the letter 
last Monday and has asked 
arms control experts to give 
him their reactions when he 
returns from, holiday in Cali- 
fornia in two weeks. 

The Soviet offer could allay 
West European worries about 
removing all the new US 
weapons employed in accor- 
dance with the 1979 Nato 
decision. The US and the 
Soviet Union have suggested 
recently going b 2 ck to the so- 
called “zero option.” with the 
elimination of all medium 
range weapons in Europe. But 
they have disagreed on what 
to do about Soviet SS20 
missiles in Asia, and about 
British and French missiles. 

The Reagan Administration 
has been under pressure to 
respond positively to a num- 
ber of recent arms control 
proposals. Congress and the 
Western allies have reacted 
sharply to the abandonment 
of tbe Salt 2 arms treaty, and 
congressional committees 


in Mr Reagan's budget for the 
Strategic Defence Initiative. 

Washington also knows that 

Mr Gorbachov is under pres- 
sure not to hold another 
summit meeting unless he can 
demonstrate some progress in 
the arms talks. Officials here 
said his letter was “positive” 
and “practical.” some adding 
it was almost “plaintive” in 
the references to the compro- 
mises he has made and is 
willing to make in the future. 

The Soviet leader said the 
summit would be a waste of 
time without “concrete 
achievements'' • in limiting 
arms. But he was careful not to 
make this a precondition. 

Intermediate weapons are 
seen as the easiest area in 
which the Geneva talks could 
make progress. Tbe presen l 
position is that the US has 
proposed the weapons' com- 
plete elimination, whereas 
Moscow has said it would 
destroy its SS20s in Europe 
while freezing those in Asia at 
the current total of 1 70- 
Moscow also wants British 
and French nuclear forces to 
be frozen at 140 and not 
modernized. Previously it had 
demanded that they be includ- 
ed in the total to be reduced. 

Mr George Shultz, the Sec- 
retary ofState. expressed frus- 
tration at the weekend over 
the Soviet refusal to set a date 
for talks leading to a summit 


Arts Council meet 
on Hali-Nunn row 


By Gavin Bell 
Arts Correspondent 

Senior directors of the Arts 
Council are holding an emer- 
gency meeting today to dis- 
cuss a report that the heads of 
the National Theatre and the 
Royal Shakespeare Company 
may resign over allegations 
that they amassed personal 
fortunes while their theatres 
were dependent on public 
subsidies. 

Tbe meeting was convened 
by Mr Luke Rittner, secretary 
genera] of the council, after a 
report in The Sunday Times 
that Sir Peter Hall.’ of the 
National, and Mr Trevor 
Nunn, of the RSC. had profit- 
ed from their positions to 
become multi-millionaires 
while showing a lack of com- 
mitment to the institutions. 


Mr Rittner declined to com- 
ment yesterday, although a 
statement may be issued after 
today's private discussions. 
The council is channelling 
£ 1 3million of public funds to 
the two theatres this year. 

The council was now hold- 
ing an inquiry into all aspects 
of theatre funding, and it did 
not wish to pre-empt its 
findings. He added that the 
council had every confidence 
in the companies' boards of 
directors. 

However, a highly placed 
drama source told The Times 
that there had been discontent 
for some time from within 
both subsidized theatres and 
from associated organizations 
about a “highly 
unsatisfactory" situation. 
There was no doubt that both

Three paintings by George 
Stubbs, tire eighteenth-centu- 
ry painter, have been bought 
for a few. hundred pounds in 
provincial sales over the past 
year and resold at Sotheby's 
for thousands. - 

Mr Mark Hancock, a pic- 
ture dealer from west London, 
made the biggest lulling. The 
“Dapple Grey Stallion in a 

Landscape" that he bought for 
£?62 at an R H Ellis sale in 
Worthing last September se- 
cured £267,948 when if was 
sold fry Sotheby's in New York 
three weeks ago- 

Mr Hancock opted for New 
York '-.so f&at tbe hurdle of 
acquiring an export fieence 
would be out of the way by the 
time it was offered- It was. 
bought by the Ledger Gallery 
of Bond Street ami brought 
back -to Britain.

them but be is believed to be

and sells in London.. 


Stallion in a Landscape” 

In Sotheby's London sale of 
March !2 one of tbe foxhound 
studies made £34.000 and tbe 
other £5*LOO0. They were 
bought by Spink's of King 
Street; St James's, 

Mr Hancock says that coun- 
try sales are so fnB of fakes 
that “everyone ■ gets neurotic 
about it”. He had attended the. 


second sale where the fox- 
hounds appeared but deckled 
against them. 

Mr John Nicholson of Mes- 
senger. May and Baverstock 
confirmed that the trade was 
represented in strength at his 
auction but the general feeling 
was against them. They came 
from a private owner. 

The “Dapple Grey” had 
apparently belonged to the 
same family for a long time 
before appearing at the Ellis 
auction. It has a curious semi- 
circular inscription on (be 
bottom of the picture which 
reads “Some of Old Sterling P 
Stubbs”. It had been badly 
cleaned recently, according to 
Mr Hancock. 

.After tbe sale he sold a half 
share to Mr Mkhael Rich of 
Marlow and they collaborated 
in research. By the time tbe 
picture was consigned to 
Sotheby's its authenticity had 
been established. 


Instalment 
deal for 
rate rebels 

Rate-rebel councillors 
banned from Lambeth council 
in south London have been 
allowed to pay their £105.000 
surcharge for “wilful 
misconduct" in interest-free 
instalments. 

The deal worked out by 

lawyers was disclosed by the 
Audit Commission, which 
could not say how long the 
repayment period would be. 

If councillors arc found to 
have lost more than £2.000 
through wilful misconduct 
they arc surrhai^ed for the 
loss and banned from all 
council office for five years. 

The deal is further evidence 
of the cautious approach to 
surcharge being taken by cn- , 
forcemeat authorities.

Branson 
captures 
the Blue 
Riband 

By Nicholas Beeston 

Mr Richard Branson cap- 
tured the Blue Riband title for 
the fastest Atlantic crossing 
when his power boat. Chal- 
lenger II. raced past the 
finishing line off the Isles of 
Sciliy at 734 yesterday 
evening. 

Mr Branson and bis fire- 
man crew made maritime his- 
tory by recording a time of 
three days, eight hours, 31 
minutes, cutting two hours, 
nine minutes off the previous 
record, set 34 years ago by the 
American cruise liner the SS 
United States. 

A small flotilla of pleasure 
craft from the port of St 
Mary's in the Scillies greet 
Challenger by blowing fog- 
horns as the vessel shot past 
the line at the Bishop Rock 
lighthouse, eight miles south- 
west of tbe island. 

When Challenger II crossed 
the finishing line, Mr Branson 
unravelled the six-foot-long 
bine pennant to fly from the 
boat's masthead. The Bine 
Riband emblem is the symbol 
of the fastest transatlantic 
vesseL Moments before.be 
said: “We are throwing down 
the gauntlet for anyone else to 
make a transatlantic challenge 
and try to beat it” 

Mr Branson's girlfriend. 
Miss Joan Templeman, his 
daughter Holly, aged four, his 
son Sam. aged one, and his 
parents and grandmother were 
on hand at the quayside in St 
Mary's to greet the 72ft vesseL 
Mr Edward Branson, the 
entrepreneur's father, said 
that Challenger could have 
knocked more time off the 
record if it bad not been 
dogged by engine and weather 
problems. In the final stages 
the boat had to make a 30-mile 
detour to avoid bad weather. 

Challenger U's engine prob- 
lem began on Friday when the 
fuel tanks became contaminat- 
ed with sea water and two 
engineers Mr Stephen Lawes 
and Mr Eckhard Rastig, 
worked around the clock to 
keep fuel lines open. 

The boat lost nine hoars 
because or the coatemmatien 
and new fuel filters were 
dropped by parachute from an 
RAF Nimrod. 

But Challenger's progress 
was again dogged by heavy 
seas which at times forced the 
boat to reduce speed to 34 
knots from its 50-knot maxi- 
mum. The next hurdle was a 
tricky night-time refuelling 
with the Irish Navy vessel LE 
Aoifa, The Irish sailors man- 
aged to complete tbe operation 
in 30 minutes. 

Challenger IT's crossing has 
rekindled interest io the 148- 
year-old challenge. 

The title originates from the 
blue ensignia of the British 
Order of the Garter, when it 
was first established iu IS38 
by the steamer Great Western 
which crossed from Bristol to 
New York in 1 5 days. 


Tebbit 

losing 

Tory 

support 

By Philip Webster and 
Richard Evans 
Mr Norman Tebbit has 
suffered a severe loss of sup- 
port among Conservaiiv c 
MPs. who. only a year ago. 
regarded him as the natural 
successor io Mrs Margaret 
Thatcher as leader of the 
Conservative Party. 

At the same time, Mr 
Kenneth Baker, who entered 
the Cabinet less than a year 
ago. has emerged as the lead- 
ing contender to take the party 
leadership, if the contest to 
replace Mrs Thatcher lakes 
place after the next general 
election. 

These were the key findings 
of a survey conducted by The 
Tuna last week of three- 
quarters of the Conservative 
backbench intake of 1983. 

Sir Geoffrey Howe and Mr 
Peter Walker’ are the leading 
candidates to replace Mrs 
Thatcher, in the highly unlike- 
ly circumstance, of the leader- 
ship becoming vacant before 
the next general election. 

Last year, a similar survey 
gave Mr Tebbit. chairman of 
the Conservative party. 52 per 
cent support and a massive 
lead over all other contenders. 

The Times last week inter- 
viewed 75 ofthe Conservative 
MPs who first entered parlia- 
ment in 1983. 

Only 16 per cent of those 
slating preferences — a hand- 
ful were undecided or refused 
to co-operate — said they 
would back Mr Tebbit as Mrs 
Thatcher’s successor if her 
position became available 
during the next parliament. 
The same figure said they 
would support him in the 
event of an earlier contest 
Most of those switching 
votes from Mr Tebbit have 
done so with reluctance. But 
they were virtually unani- 
mous in declaring, with sad- 
ness. their belief that he is no 
longer the force he was before 
the Brighton bombing at the 
1984 party conference. 

Few believe he has made a 
full recovery from the physical 
injuries and emotional trauma 
f the attack, which also iefi 
his wife paralysed. . 

B-Ji there ves also a strong 
belief that Mr Tebbifs abra- 
ive style has had its day and 
the party would be ready for a 
new, softer image. More than 
one MP also spoke of a 
bitterness in Mr Tebbit which 
they had not previously 
noticed. 

“I think the bomb at Brigh- 
ton has taken rather loo much 
out of him. It has put a 
bitterness into him that was 
not there before." one MP 
said. Another remarked: ”! 
was a Tebbit man until the day 
he wound up a serious Com- 
mons debate on the plight of 
the inner cities and tried to use 
his speech to knock hell out of 
the Militant Tendency."

Rate rebels to 
pay surcharge 
in interest-free 
instalments 

By Hugh Clayton, Local Government Correspondent 


. Mr Ted Knight and his 
banned colleagues from Lam- 
beth council in south London 
have been allowed to pay their 
£105.000 surcharge for "wilful 
misconduct" in interest-free 
instalments. 

The deal worked out by 
lawyers was disclosed by the 
Audit Commission, which 
could not say how long the 
repayment period would be. 

The final size of the Lam- 
beth bill will not be known 
until costs have been appor- 
tioned. If councillors are 
found to have lost more than 
£2,000 through willfol mis- 
conduct they are surcharged 
for the loss and banned from 
all council office for five years. 

The deal is further evidence 
of the cautious approach to 
surcharge being taken by en- 
forcement authorities dealing 
with councillors who are ac- 
cused or suspected of willful 
misconduct in last year's abor- 
tive Labour rates rebellion. 

In spite of pressure from 
MPs and councillors in other 
panics, auditors are in no 
hurry to claim all the money 
outstanding. They have fo- 
cused so far on interest fore- 
gone when Labour members 
of some councils delayed fix- 
ing rates in the hope of 
extracting more cash from the 
Government. 

Further action depends on 
the result of a complicated 
court case which is due to 
open a week from today. The 
49 surcharged councillors 
from Liverpool are to appeal 
against rejection of an earlier 
appeal against an auditor's 
verdict that they had caused 
unnecessary losses through 
willful misconduct in the rates 
rebellion. 


The Liverpool appellants 
include Mr Derek Hatton, 
deputy leader of Liverpool 
council, and Mr Tony 
Mulheam, former president of 
the district party in the city, 
who are fighting expulsion 
from the Labour Party 
nationally. 

Mr Knight and the sur- 
charged Lambeth councillors 
decided in the spring that they 
could not affoid to mount a 
similar appeal. 

The outcome of the Liver- 
pool case, which may not be 
known until the autumn, will 
determine whether auditors 
press surcharge demands 
against rebel Labour council- 
lors in Sheffield and the 
London boroughs of Camden. 
Southwark, Greenwich and 
Islington. All joined in the 
rebellion last year but surren- 
dered to government demands 
before Lambeth and 
Liverpool. 

It is also uncertain whether 
auditors will pursue other 
losses alleged to have been 
incurred in Lambeth and Liv- 
erpooL They include, for ex- 
ample, an estimated extra 
£30,000 incurred in Lambeth 
for overtime payments to staff 
who had to process delayed 
rates demands. 

Mr John Cartwright, SDP 
parliamentary spokesman on 
local government and a for- 
mer Labour leader of Green- 
wich council, said yesterday: 
"f cannot see how the district 
auditor is prevented from 
stating that there is a prima 
facie case of willful miscon- 
duct in borough X simply 
because borough V is appeal- 
ing. I really think that the 
whole procedure has come out 
of this very badly. 


Tory seeks 
new deal 
for inner 
cities 

Inner cities will have to 
adopt more balanced multi- 
cultural policies to avoid fos- 
tering racial barriers .and 
community ghettos, according 
to a report published today. 

"The race issue in our inner 
cities and elsewhere has been 
exploited in two destructive 
ways, which instead of lower- 
ing barriers, have reinforced 
barriers and divided 
communities." the report's 
author, Mr Anthony Coombs, 
Conservative education 
spokesman with Birmingham 
City Council said yesterday. 

He said that over the past 
decade balanced policies for 
equal opportunities and the 
integration of ethnic minor- 
ities had been “hijacked" by 
socialists and sofUeft profes- 
sional multi-culturalists. 

"Racial harmony will never 
be achieved in our inner cities, 
or anywhere else, unless we 
emphasize what we have in 
common, that is we are all 
British, Brummies, Mancu- 
nians, Liverpudlians, and not 
what divides us", Mr Coombs 
said. 

In his report, Mr Coombs 
criticizes local authorities for 
promoting bilingual teaching 
in schools, saying it will 
extend cultural barriers. 

He urges the Government 
to grant inner cities enterprise 
zone status and the opportuni- 
ty to set up development 
corporations. 

Inner cities are the debris of 
Britain's changing society, 
while they should be the 
nucleus of Britain's new in- 
dustrial growth, he says. 

Successful black and Asian 
businessmen should be pro- 
moted as models of success, 
and building societies should 
offer low-interest loans to 
homeowners who want to 
refurbish inner-city property.

A mBIt tony ploughing 
through floodwater which rose 
to four feet in parts of Tor- 
quay, Devon, yesterday. Thun- 
derstorms and Doods swept 
across south -west England 
and south-west Wales, cooling 
the heatwave that has covered 
Britain since last Thursday. 

Torquay was worst affected 
by the floods. Roads were 
dosed and town centre shops 
lost thousands of pounds of 
stock. 

But most parts of England 
still basked in humid warmth 
throughout the day.with tem- 
peratures reaching the high 
seventies and low eighties. 

Although the thunder- 
storms will spread today from 
the west of England, most 
central and eastern areas wfll 
still have warm, dry weather 
with plenty of sunshine; the 
London weather bureau said.

By-election campaign 


Tebbit after the cussed vote 


By Nicholas Wood, Political Reporter 


Mr Norman Tebbit, the 
Conservative Party chairman, 
will be hoping for some awk- 
ward customers tomorrow 
when he launches his party's 
campaign to overcome the 
habits of a lifetime and cap- 
ture Newcastle-under-Lyme 
in the by-election on July 17. 

The seat fell vacant after the 
resignation of Mr John Gol- 
ding, the Labour right-winger 
who has forsaken Westmin- 
ster to be the £33,000-a-year 
general secretary of the Na- 
tional Communications 
Union. 

His wife and personal assis- 
tant, Ltin, aged 53, was 


promptly installed as his puta- 
tive successor and a snap poll 
fixed for three weeks' time. 

Mr Tebbit will be hoping 
that the native cussedness of 
this sedate North Stafford- 
shire town may cause its 
residents to regard the whole 
affair as a hasty intrusion into 
the lazy days of summer and. 
for once, turn their backs on 
the family firm. It is a slim 
hope. 

Mr Tebbitl's champion is 
Mr Jim Nock, aged 51, a 
hotelier from Heme Bay and 
leader of Canterbury City 
CounciL 

No doubt, as he seeks to 


overcome a 2,804-majority at 
the last election, the enthusias- 
tically Thatcherite Mr Nock 
will be canvassing the bloody- 
minded vote by recalling Mr 
Golding's parting shot to his 
constituents: "There is noway 
I would have created a by- 
election Labour could lose." 

Also hoping to prove him 
wrong is Mr Alan Thomas, 
aged 46, a college lecturer and 
CND supporter, who has just 
17 days to shift the Alliance 
band wagon into lop gear.

HOW TWO BUCKETS, 

A RUBBER BALL AND SOME 
STRING GOT ERIC MURRAY 
HIS HOME BACK. 


“It was February last year when I fell 
over. I’ve got arthritis, you see, and 
itfs difficult to bend down. I dropped 
a tin of beans and fell trying to pick it up 
Of course, then I couldn’t get up. It was 
just me and the beans, stuck there on 
the floor? 

in Britain, 189,000 old people 
can’t get in and out of bed without 
help. 695,000 can’t cope with stairs. 
1,056,000 can’t walk without help. One 
household in seven is inhabited by an old 
person living alone. 

The consequences of frailty can be 
devastating to the old. A five inch kerb- 
stone; turning a key; a patch of uneven 
ground; the ability to manage everyday 
obstacles like these can easily make the 
difference between living at home, or not 

Help the Aged funds Day Hospi tals 
where people like Eric can receive the 
individual therapy to give them the ability 
and the confidence to retain their precious 
independence. 

After treatment to improve balance 
and co-ordination, including practice in 
bending down and picking the ball from 
one bucket to another, he was confident 
enough to go home. 

ALTHOUGH THIS IS A CASE HSTOPY. THE NAME HAS BE&J CHANGED TO FflOTECT FWACY 



Except that they were able to 
help further. By wrapping string 
round it to thicken the handle, Eric can now 
hold a saucepan so he can eat hot food again. 

The entire quality of life for millions of 
old people depends upon simple, practical 
measures like those the Day Hospital 
provides. 

In addition Help the Aged supports Day 
Centres, helps fund minibuses, provides

Benefits 
Bill faces 
challenge 

By Sheila Gunn 

The Government feces an- 
other serious defeat on the 
Social Security Bill in the 
House of Lords .today. 

Ministers warned peers 
against wrecking the overhaul 
of the benefits system after 
their two policy reversals last 
Mondays But leading lawyers 
in the Lords are determined to 
press through changes to the 
social fund. 

Lord Scarman, the former 
High Court judge, is anxious 
for social fund claimants to 
have the right of appeal to an 
independent tribunal if their 
appheations for help are re- 
fused. Under the Bill as it 
stands they could only com- 
plain to the Department of 
Health and Social Security. 

Lord Scarman is backed by 
Lord Elwyn-Jones, the former 
Lord Chancellor, and Lord 
Wigoder, the Liberal lawyer. 

The Government could find 
it difficult to remove such an 
amendment as it is likely to be 
supported by many MPS. 

Ministers are expected to 
try to reverse last week’s 
defeats during the third read- 
ing of the BOI in the Lords. 
Peers rejected a clause forcing 
those on benefits to pay the 
first 20 per cent of their rales 
bills. 


Revolt on 
rerouting 
of airline 

By Ronald Fame 

.Highlanders campaigning 
against the rerouting of the 
Inverness to London 
Heathrow air service are seek- 
ing a meeting with Mr John 
Moore, Secretary of State for 
Transport* to [point oat to. the 
Government the serious impli- 
cations of any change for the 
region. 

The daily flights operated 
by Dan Air carry 100,060 
passengers a year into 
Heathrow. The campaign 
group, representing business 
and local authority interests, 
say that 25,000 of these 
travellers go on to other 
international airlines that 
would not be available at 
Gatwick or any other 
destination. 

The Civil Aviation Author- 
ity, which is seeking to re- 
route die service from the 
crowded Heathrow terminals, 
estimated that only 12^00 
Highlanders go on to interna- 
tional services. 

One Highland industrialist 
called the service, which runs 
at a profit, "not just an airline 
but a lifeline between the 
Highland's capital and 
London.” 


Cardinal’s 
concern on 
ordination 
of women 

Cardinal Basil Hume. Arch- 
bishop of Westminster, said 
yesterday that if the Ch urch of 
England proceeded with the 
ordination of women to the 
priesthood, it would be a 
serious obstacle to its union ; 
with the Roman Catholic ” 
Church. 

He said on TVam s Jona- 
than Dimhleby on Sunday 
programme: "What worries . 
me is not only that this issue is •; 
likely to make church unity * 
more difficult between out- .*• 
selves and the Anglican com- * 
munily but I am very 
frightened that there is going r 
to be a split in the Church of » 
England itself and further * 
fragmentation in the Church ;* 
of England." J* 

He said 75 per cent o(** 
Christendom did not acccpL*- 
the ordination of women, andw 
in his view, the Church had new,

200-year-old pit dies

Last waltz at the Bunker 


By Tun Jones 

During the miners' strike, 
the men of Maerdy colliery, 
the last pit in the ooce-nrighty 
Rhondda Valley, described 
their struggle as "the last 
waltz". The dance ends today 
when the final lamp of coal 
wfll be bronght to the surface, 
ending 200 years of tradition 
in the valley. 

There will be no ceremonial 
to mark the end of an era by 
the miners who marched back 
to work behind their brass 
band, swearing to continue the 


Instead, they will walk the 
mile to the gram bat decaying 
miners' institute, drink beer, 
and reflect on the fact of 
“Little Moscow". 

That sobriquet was earned 
by being the first to enter the 
fight and last to leave. If 
Cortonwood colliery, York- 
shire, where the strike began, 
was known as the Alamo, 
Maerdy became known as the 
Bunker. 

So confident were they of 
their ingrained discipline they 
did not even bother to estab- 
lish picket lines outside the pit 
entrance. No one could have 
endured the stigma of break- 
{ ranks. There is stfll one 
foftnnate soul in the villa ge 
known as Dai Black because 
he jnst thought of crossing the 
picket lilies during the 1926 
general strike. 

Rhondda coal did more than 
fuel an empire, sending iron- 
clads to war and wanning the 
mansions of the men who 
owned it and the mean houses 
of those who worked it. 

It frightened the British 
1 to the core for 



Warning over 
pit strike 

Sir Ian MacGregor, the 
outgoing chairman of British 
Coal, gave a warning yester- 
day that the industry would 
not survive another miners' 
strike. 

His prediction came on the 
eve of the annual conference 
of the National Union of 
Mineworkers in Tenby, South 
Wales, which begins today. 

On the agenda is a resolu- 
tion from the Yorkshire area 
threatening industrial action if 
pay demands are not met. 

Sir Ian, who makes way for 
Sir Robert Hasiara, former 
head of British SteeL on 
September 1, said in an article 
in the News of the World 
yesterday: “The next national 
strike by the NUM wall be the 
last The industry could not 
survive another. That road 
ends in total destruction ” 

The finances of British Coal 
had been badly affected by the 
slump in oil prices. It had been 
forced to cut £300 million a 
year from the prices it charged 
to the Central Electricity Gen- 
erating Board and was prepar- 
ing to increase production at 
the pits with the lowest costs. 
"Costs will have to be 
trimmed to the bone." Sir lan 
said. 

socialism rode on its roves 
black back and powerful men* 
trembled before the radical 
and egalitarian ideas it 
engendered, 

Maerdy men hung oat the 
hammer and sickle to mark 


royal occasions and in their 
libraries, now dosed, the min- 
ers embraced the philosophies 
which have insured the valley, 
coal or no, will always remain 
mouoUthkally socialist. 

Miners will still use the pit 
bead cages at Maerdy to 
descend 2,000 feet below the 
Rhondda to win coal but it will 
be extracted to the surface at 
the Tower colliery in the q 
Aberdare Valley. ' 

British Coal said Maerdy / 
had to be twinned under- A 
ground with Tower because it a 
was losing abour £5 million a * 
year. They hope the future isL- 
secure for the 450 men remain-^ * 
ing oat of the pre-strik£V 
workforce of 850.

Exam nerves affecting 
most A-level pupils, 
lecturer’s survey shows 

- P ®y I - nc y Hodges, Education Correspondent 


HOME NEWS 


- A survey of A-Ieve! students 
has revealed that 69.7 per cent 
experience such severe exami- 
. i nation nerves before and dur- 
wing the examinations that 
their performance almost cer- 
tainly suffers. 

. Nervous symptoms range 
from physical problems such 
as exhaustion and difficulty 
yritta deeping, to mental worry 
and even panic. The survey 
found that more than half the 
students experienced “panic 
reactions” during the exami- 
nation which entailed switch- 
ing between questions, 
continual rechecking of work, 
and dizziness and Minting. 

„ Yet only one in five or the 
A-level students in the survey 
received effective help and 


training in how to manage the 
stress and reduce the worry, 
according to Mr Don Davies, 
principal lecturer in teaching 
studies at Worcester College 
of H igher Education. 

His survey of 22 1 students, 
all undergraduates by that 
time, showed that 68.2 per 
cent of students felt they did 
not do as well as they were 
capable of doing. 

The most commonly cited 
reason was poor concentra-

New course to provide

’ • -ts- 


T. Oneof tire coratry's largest 
examining bodies is poised to 
-introduce a new electronics 
.examination, after employers 
called for more adequate stu- 
' (toot training.

gued that passing a school 
jphysks, or any other science 
-examination, was not a dear

to provide young people with 
fundamental s kill* for 

employment in aS types of 
- electrical work in the engineer- 


its will be expected to 
demonstrate bask under- 


standing of components, their 
uses, calculations, instruments 
and safety procedures. 

It is part of a series of 
similar basic tests, already 
operated by the board, to 
assess transferable skills 
which students can use to get 
the best out of further t raining 
and education. These tests are 
not an extension of existing 
CSE ocJGCE examinalons. 

Mr Peter Roberts, training 
manager for Marconi Com- 
mand and Control Systems, 
welcomed the new test paper. 
It would be advantageous to 
both employers and school 
leavers when siftiug through 
job applications. 

Specimen papers of the test 
and syDaims has been sent to 
employers in electronics-relat- 
ed industries fix’ comment, 


in an examination centre. 
Forty-four per cent of students 
said they were worried during 
the examination, with the 
main worries being fear of 
letting down parents and 
teachers, and past failures. 

Sixty-nine per cent of stu- 
dents said they “worried a lot” 
before an examination, and 
60 per cent considered that 
worry had an adverse effect on 
their health. They suffered 
from headaches, stomach up- 
sets, sleeping difficulties, lack 
of appetite and loss of energy. 

Stress problems were relat- 
ed to the student's perfor- 
mance. Those with high 
grades had less difficulty than 
the average, and students with 
low grades had more. For 
future examinations 40 per 
cent would welcome training 
in how to manage their stress. 

Mr Davies, who has written 
a book on examination stress 
to be published this autumn, 
said it was common knowl- 
edge that there were large 
numbers of students whose 
examination performance 
failed to do justice to their 
ability, training or hard work. 

“The findings of this survey 
suggest that in some cases 
students are likely to be 
overwhelmed by the cumula- 
tive effects of prolonged worry 
and chronic fatigue.” 

Public examinations were 
one of the most extreme forms 
of competition m contempo- 
rary society, he said, exerting 
pressures on people which call 
for much more than ordinary 
effort.

The England and Somerset cricketer 
is in trouble again over scathing after-

Mr Colin Atkinson, chairman of the

plinary committee, will meet tire board's 
secretary, Mr Donald Carr, today to 
discnss what to do. 

Botham, who described the selectors 
as “gin-slinging dodderers”, could face 
another charge of bringing the game into 
disrepute and be fined or have his 
suspension from the game extended. 
The board's executive committee meets 
tomorrow. 


Meanwhile, the selectors say they are 
treating his remarks with the contempt 
they deserve. Botham said yesterday 
that the remarks at a private dinner at 
Old Trafiord were “a jest”. He had been 
given an undertaking that be wo old not

Applicants 
vetted by 
private eye 

By AngeQa Johnson 

Job applicants are having 
. .their private lives scrutinized 
far more by British compa- 
. pies, which are using private 
investigate is. the National 
^Council for Civil. Liberities 
, says. . 

New recruitment methods 
have made employers use a 
battery of techniques in their 
drive for “total personality 
assessment”, the council says. 
' This has led to background 
checks, the use of private 
detectives; psychological 
K “honesty tests”, lie detectors 
■and intimate interview 
questions. 

•• No aspect of a job 
applicant's private life is 
spared the searching scrutiny 
of the company vetting proce- 
dures — drinking habits, sex 
life, children's behaviour and 
..wife's past liaisons, can all be 
. fair game in the recruitment 
..environment of the mid- 
1980s. 

Miss Marie Staunton, the 
council's legal officer. sai± 
“We are aware that employers 
;.and job agencies are asking 
-■irrelevant and personal ques- 
' /lions, but in today's job 
^climate many, perhaps most 
^people don’t want us to take 
.“up their cases.” 

She said most examples 
have been concentrated in the 
areas of insurance, private 
hospitals, and general white- 
collar work. 

“In one case, a man was 
refused a job as a railway 
carriage cleaner after failing a 
personality test.” 

- Every type of job applicant 
. .could be affected — from pet- 
rol pump attendants and cleri- 
cal workers to top company 
directors. 

Mr Peter Heims, a private 
detective and spokesman for 
.the Association of British 
/Investigators, said his private 
“detective company in 
-Letherhead. offers employers 
.pre-employment checks that

Gold theft 
suspect off 
to Brazil 

By Stewart Tendler . , 

Scotland Yard detectives 
believe that the arrival is 
Brazil at the weekend of a 
British jeweller linked to the 
£26 iniDion -Brinks -Mat gold 
robbery coaid herald the start 
of a stream of British fugitives 
expelled from Spain fleeing to 
Sooth America. 

Apart from Brazil, British 
fugitives living in Spain are 
known to have investigated 
conditions other Sooth Ameri- 
can countries. 

Several wanted Britons are 
faring possible expulsion from 
Spain under a new aliens act. 

In tire past year, fugitives 
faring the rigours of the act 
have been monitored by Scot- 
land Yard as they seek conn- 
tries where they can move 
assets from Spain. 

But the first Briton to be 
expelled was Mr John Palmer, 
aged 36, a jeweller, who was 
flown from Tenerife, in the 
Canary Islands, to Madrid 
and then placed on a flight to 
Rio de Janiero mi Saturday. 

Extradition arrangements 
with Spain come into force 
next week, but the treaty 
cannot be retrospective. In the 
meantime Spain passed the 
new aliens act which created 
powers for the expulsion of 
foreigners. 


IRA trials 
in 1970s 
questioned 

By Our Crime Reporter 

Pressure for an inquiry into 
three IRA trials involving 1 7 
convictions in the 1970s will 
be increased this week with a 
Yorkshire TV investigation 
into the case of the Woolwich 
and Guildford public house 
bombings-in 1974; • 

The convictions arc adding 
to concern already expressed 
over two other convictions in 
the 1970s. 

Doubts were raised about 
the conviction of six men for 
the Birmingham public house 
bombing in 1974 in which 21 
people died, and the conspira- 
cy to cause explosions which 
led to the conyjction, in a 
separate case, of a north 
London family, including Mrs 
Annie MacGuire. 

Last week Mr Douglas 
Hurd, the Home Secretary, 
announced that he bad or- 
dered a police report into 
television allegations that the 
mot convicted of the Birming- 
ham case had been ill-treated 
by police and that there were 
questions over new evidence. 

Calls for a review of the 
Guildford case are being sup- 
ported by Mr Meriyn Rees, 
Home Secretary and Secretary 
of State for Northern Ireland 
in the 1970s, and Lord Fitt 
former leader of the SDLP. 


Trial opens today for 
couple on spy charges 

Secret radio transmissions, 
maps and false identification 
are said to have been involved 
during nearly five years of 
alleged espionage activity by 
an East German couple who 
go on trial at the Central 
Criminal Court today. 

Reinhard Schulze, aged 33. 
and his wife, Sonja, aged 36, of 
Waye Avenue, Cranford, west 
London, together or separate- 
ly face an indictment of five 
counts. Three are under the 
Official Secrets Act and two 
under ibe Forgery and Coun- 
terfeiting Act 1981. 

The couple are together 
charged that between January 
1980 and August 1985 they “ 
did diverse acts preparatory to 
communicating to another 


person information which was 
calculated to be or might have 
been or was intended to be 
directly or indirectly useful to 
an enemy”. 

They did so, according to 
the charge, by living in Brit- 
ain. possessing false docu- 
ments of identification, a 
quantity of maps, and equip- 
ment for the receipt or com- 
munication of secret 
information. 

Mr Schulze, an interior 
decorator, is charged with 
making a false statement 
claiming to be Bryan Walde- 
mar Stnmzein an application 
to obtain a British passport. 

Mrs Schulze, a translator, is 
charged with possessing an 
irregular Austrian passport. 


Prince’s 
wedding 
day fears 

Prince Andrew yesterday 
confessed to wedding nerves, 
to worries about his comfort if 
the big day is hot, and said he 
knew “absolutely nothing” 
about Miss Sarah Ferguson's 
dress design. 

While the wedding dress 
was being kept a secret, the 
Prince admitted his fiancee 
did not know where they were 
going on their honeymoon. 

“I would love to get July 23 
out of the way”, he said mi 
BBC Radio, while taking part 
in a celebrity day pigeon shoot 
at Seabnd, near Chester. 

“The build-up to ft gets 
more and more tense towards 
the day. It is very difficult to 
enjoy the day, but you do 
because by the time you have 
done it all, it will all work like 
dockwork. 

“Once that is over, I think ft 
is time for a holiday — any- 
way, a little one.” 

He said the wedding plans 
were going very well and they 
were finalizing the Abbey 
seating arrangements. 

“I shall be dressed in uni- 
form, which «,the rigyrm. 
supposed to be in. Jf ihe 
weather is anything like this, 
Tm going to boO so I'D have to 
find some coo Hug treatment 
part of the way down the 
aide." 

Asked about his fiancee's 
wedding dress, he said: “I'm 
not allowed to know, and I 
won't see the dress until ft 
conies up die aisle. The pages 
and bridesmaids and wedding 
dress are all being done by 
Sarah, and stfe doesn't want 
me to know anything about it” 

The Prince said the build-up 
of public affection as the 
wedding approached had been 
very noticeable, particularly 
during their visit to Northern 
Ireland last week. 

Of his plans for after the 
wedding, be said: “I shall 
probably stay in the Navy for 
some considerable time. 
-Asked bow Miss Ferguson 
would feel if he had to go to sea 
again, be said: “She's very 
keen that I should stay hi the 
Navy, or do what I would like 
to do.” 

• The Prince of Wales, who 
has been identified for some 
time with initiatives to help 
small businesses, is to make a 
plea on Wednesday for larger 
companies to do more to aid 
smaller concerns, including an 
idea for giving at least 1 per 
cent of pre-tax profits. 

The Prince is offering a 
personal bonus to companies 
willing to help. He will say he 
would be interested to bear 
from companies which are 
carrying out his objectives. 

He wants the share of bigger 
companies' profits to go to 
local community enterprise 
initiatives and charities. But 
some business leaders such as 
the Confederation of British 
Industry are likely to be 
sceptical. 

The Prince's plan suggests 
buying locally from small 
companies and paying bills 
promptly, while generally be- 
ing helpful with sales and 
purrhasing contacts. 


Additive ban in children’s food urged 


* 


Seventy. MPs have backed a 
-motion urging the Government 
jo ban unnecessary additives 
‘from foods liable to be con- 
sumed by. children aged under 
five. 

The MPs have called for an 
urgent government debate on 
food additives, particularly 
Tartrazine. one of the most 

.' common artificial colouring 

agents, which has been banned 
‘from foods in Bir mingham 
schools. 

Two of the campaigners, Sir 
- Geoffrey Johnson Smith, Con- 
Iservative MP for Weakfonand 
Mr Michael Meadowooft, 
Liberal MP for West Leeds, 
said that the Government . 
amid no ' longer ignore -the 
^growing evidence against 
additives. 

r “MPs are increasingly con- 
cerned -about the effects of 


these additives, particularly 
Tartrazine, on babies and 
young children,” Mr Meadow- 
croft said. 

“The Government can start 
by removing all unnecessary 
additives from foods which 
children eat, and more money 
most be spent on research,” he 
said. 

Nutritionists and consumer 
groups have campaigned 
against additives for the past 
nine years in Britain and there 
have been similar moves in 
Europe, the United States and 
Australia. 


kecs, sndt as Tesco, Safeway 
and Sainsbury, banned a wide 
range of additives, induding 
Tartrazine, from their own- 
label lines, and other manufac- 
turers have since followed suit 
But many' products containing 


Tartrazine are still being sold. 

Tartrazme, a yellow eotonr- 
ing from a group of synthetic 
chmnicals called azo dyes, 
originally derived from coal 
ter. Is suspected of affecting - 
children's .behaviour. 

Dieticians in Birmingham 
are studying other food addi- 
tives to see if they should be 
banned from school foods, 
after two reports pablished* 
last week. 

Tartrazine leads a list of 
additives investigated by the 
London Food Coramissioo 
during the past three years. 
According io a report pub- 
lished by the commission last 
October, a number of azo dyes 
are suspected -of causing 
cancers. 

Dr John Hunter, a consnl- 
tent physician and gastroen- 
terologist at Addenbrookes 


Hospital, Cambridge, said 
that the Government should 
inject more money into 
research. 

“Tartrazme is certainly 
harmful but in a small percent- 
age of people. It has been 
shown to be related to hyper- 
activity in children and other 
problems, such as skin rashes, 
migraines and bowel upsets,” 
Dr Hunter said. - 
The Hyperactive Children's 
Support Group believes that at 
least oae in 30 children in 
Britain is hyperactive. 

. Mrs Vicky Colqiibofln, its 
chairman, sahL “We have 
thousands of worried parents 
contacting us every month for 
advice on diet” 

She also believes that preg- j 
Bant women should etenrinate 
unnecessary additives from 
their diet. 


Cautious ‘yes’ to 
pay-TV scheme 

By Nicholas Wood, Political Reporter 


Mr Douglas Hurd, the 
Home Secretary, 'will give 
qualified support to a radical 
“pay as you view” scheme for 
television when the Peacock 
report on the future financing 
of broadcasting is published 
on Thursday. 

The idea is for the public to 
buy the programmes they 
watch using a computerized 
credit card and so obviate the 
need for the £58 television 
licence fee. The report envis- 
ages such a system being 
introduced in stages by the 
end of the century. 

Ministers are said to favour 
it because it accords with 
Conservative philosophy of 
extending consumer choice 
and power by making the 
television viewer, not the 
broadcasting authorities, the 
final arbiter of what appears 
on his screen.

Radio I and Radio 2. the 
setting up of a national inde-

the creation of community

referred for further consider- 
ation by a Home Office group 
reviewing the future of sound 
broadcasting.

lished in a Green Paper in the 
autumn to be the subject of 
further public consultation.

great step back to the freedom

Check on 
irradiated 
food fraud 

An insurance fraud involv- 
ing contaminated food 
“cleaned” by irradiation is 
being investigated by the In- 
ternational Maritime Bureau. 
It is thought to concern im- 
ported food confiscated by 
port health authorities. 

The importer claims on his 
“rejection” insurance but in 
some countries is allowed to 
buy back the food cheaply . 

It is sent for irradiation and 
resubmitted to the inspectors 
who allow it to be passed on 
the public. 

The London-based bureau, 
a private agency investigating 
fraud, was alerted by one of 
the parties to a legal action 
involving rejection insurance. 

Mr Jack Heslop, assistant 
director of the International 
Chamber of Commerce, says 
that the bureau is seeking 
evidence to back information 
that a cargo of frogs legs was 
imported and rejected by 
American officials 1 1 times.

organization.

Kiss of life 
study may 
save heart 
patients 

By Thomson Prentice 
Science Correspondent 

A national investigation is 
to be held into how hospital 
staff try to save the lives of 
heart attack victims. 

Junior hospital doctors 
have been strongly criticized 
by examiners for their poor 
standards of resuscitation. 
One survey’ carried out last 
year showed that only 8 per 
cent were able to manage a 
cardiac arrest adequately. 

Almost half the doctors 
tested in a London teaching 
hospital were unable to per- 
form external cardiac massage 
or mouih-io- mouth resuscita- 
tion properly on a model. 

Criticism has been aimed at 
medical schools for not 
putting enough emphasis on 
the subject 

A study funded by the 
British Heart Foundation is 
now to be carried out at 15 
hospitals on how resuscitation 
is attempted. It should lead to 
improvements in the training 
and skills of hospital staff. 

“Cardiac massage and 
mouih-to-moutb respiration 
3 re widely used in attempts to 
sa%'e people whose hearts have 
stopped, but liule is known of 
the exact circumstances in 
which doctors and nurses use 
these techniques, or how suc- 
cessful they are.” the founda- 
tion said. 

The study will be by medi- 
cal researchers based at Sussex 
University, Brighton, h is one 
of 30 new research projects; 
costing almost £1 million, an- 
nounced today by the charity. 

Success in laser 
beam surgery 

Doctors in Sheffield have 
successfully carried out what 
is believed to be Britain's first 
laser beam coronary surgery to 
unblock a heart artery. 

The medical team, at 
Sheffield's Northern General 
Hospital, spent two years 
researching laser surgery. Last 
Friday they used the slender 
laser probe (about as thick as a 
fuse wire) to operate on a 39- 
year-old father of two from 
Stoke on TrenL 
He was given a local anaes- 
thetic during the delicate one 
and a half hour operation to 
remove fatty tissue which had 
restricted his blood flow and 
caused severe chest pains. He 
is expected to reurn home 
early this week. 

Dr David Cumberland, the 
consultant radiologist who led 
the learn, said: “We have 
shown that the laser can be 
safe and helpful in coronary 
artery surgery and I am well 
pleased with the outcome.” 

Laser beams have previouly 
been used by doctors at the 
hospital to dear blocked leg 
arteries.

Space technology: 1 


Shuttle must be given 
new life to challenge 
Soviet dominance 


While the special commis- 
sion set up by President 
Reagan investigated the acci- 
dent in January to the Chal- 
lenger space shuttle, the 
prospects for manned space 
flight in the West looked 
bleak. Yet as with family grief, 
once the period of introspec- 
tion passes, planning for the 
future resumes. So with the 
space shuttle and manned 
space flight. 

Perhaps the finest tribute to 
the astronauts who died has 
come with the unveiling by 
NASA,the US space agency, of 
jts choice of design for an 
international permanent 
manned space station. It win 
be a little later and a little 
smaller than originally intend- 
ed. The regular crew will 
number six to eight, instead of 
ud to a dozen as had been 
timed. 

Provided that the USfleei of 
space shuttles is back in 
operation in 18 months 1 time, 
and construction of the station 
starts within the following 
year, it should be ready after 
1996. 

Sentiment apart, however, 
the feet is that the United 
States is compelled to revital- 
ize the space shuttle pro- 
gramme. A long line of 
military, scientific and cora- 


A revival of optimism in space technology was in ev- 
idence last week as experts from the United States, Eu- 
rope, China and Japan gathered in Afontreux to talk 
about projects on which £35,000 million will be 
committed over the next 20 years. In the first of three 
reports, Pearce Wright, Science Editor, looks at the 
reason for renewed confidence in the future, starting 
with manned spaceflight. 


merrial payloads is wailing to 
get into space. 

From the moment the Rus- 
sians launched Sputnik 1 29 
yeans ago the greatest stimulus 
has been Soviet competition 
and the threat of a widening 
gap in the military use of 
spaceflights. Moreover, the 
Americans are expecting the 
Russians to launch the Soviet 
version of the reusable shuttle 
at any time. 

With almost every day, the 
dominance of the Soviet 
Union in manned operations 
grows. A measure of Russian 
confidence is reflected in the 
recent phenomenon of extend- 
ed live television transmis- 
sions of each new 
achievement by cosmonauts 
from the advanced Salyut 
space station called Mir 
(“Peace”). 

Cosmonauts have logged 
more than 4,000 days in orbit 
compared with nearly 1,600 
days by American astronauts. 



But some expats believe 
the importance of man in 
space can be over-empha- 
sized. They argue for a more 
judicious balance between the 
use of robots and automated 
operations, and astronauts. 

The internationally respect- 
ed head of the new British 
National Space Centre, Mr 
Roy Gibson, says that “ideal- 
ly, we should always have the 
option to choose between a 
manned or unmanned flight 
for any particular task 

Mr Gibson believes that 
“space activities in the last 
decade of this century win be 
transformed by a permanently 
manned station and its 
accessories”. 

Those accessories include 
the development by the 11 
member nations of the Euro- 
pean Space Agency of a pres- 
surized laboratory, a man- 
tended fret-flyer and an 
unmanned polar platform. 
They form the programme 
given the ESA code-name 
Columbus. 

It was little more than a 
month ago that NASA settled 
the basic shape of its space 
station. The most obvious 
features of the superstructure 
are long lattice work beams, 
forming a box-like shape. A 
central girder divides the 
structure, and provides the 
anchorage for four large cylin- 
drical chambers for the living, 
working and laboratory 
accommodation. 

The international character 
of the space station is demon- 
strated by the fact that the 
United Slates mil make two of 
the chambers and the Europe- 
an Space Agency and Japanese 
Space Agency one each. 

One of the American cap- 
sules is for living, eating and 
sleeping and the other for 
laboratory work.

Summit on 
Eureka 
problems 

By Bill Johnstone 
Technology Correspondent 

Forty ministers from 18 
European countries and repre- 
sentatives from the European 
Commission will converge on 
London today to discuss the 
latest problems faring the 
European high technology re- 
search programme. Eureka. 

The project, seen as 
Europe's answer to the US 
“Star WanTStrategic Defence 
Initiative, is meant to many’ 
the talent of European compa- 
nies. which would jointly fund 
research into many of the 
areas being exploited by the 
US programme. 

The conference is the third 
to take place since the French 
initiative in April last year. 

Twenty-six European re- 
search projects arc now in 
progress through the scheme, 
largely funded by private 
sources, with budgets up to 
£70 million. The research sub- 
jects include biotechnology, 
telecommunications, new ma- 
terials and advanced manu- 
facturing techniques. 

The Eureka project, howev- 
er. has been criticized by some 
leading European industrial- 
ists. who consider that it has 
more political than commer- 
cial value. 

Apart from France, no 
country's government seems 
prepared to underwrite the 
cost of expensive research. 

The European electronic gi- 
ants, like Philips, have shown 
reluctance in joining the pro- 
gramme. Their view is typical 
of many European industrial- 
ists. who consider the project 
to lack direction, and to be 
high in political rhetoric but 
low in commitment. 


Warning to firms 
on Star Wars deal 


By Paul VaHely 


A warning that British 
companieswhich involved 
themselves in Star Wars re- 
search would risk losing copy- 
right and patent profits was 
given yesterday by Mr Paul 
Walton, of the Strategic Re- 
search Initiative. It is an 
independent group estab- 
lished to investigate the possi- 
ble benefits of the US defence 
programme to British 
industry. 

“There are two main areas 
of risk," he said. “One is for 
commercial firms who may 
find that their research and 
development expertise is be- 
ing exploited and no manufac- 
turing contracts being given in 
return. 

“The other is for scientists 
who may find that their ideas 
are both classified as top secret 
and appropriated by Ameri- 
can firms, depriving them of 
both the intellectual recogni- 
tion on which an academic's 
reputation is built and also of 
any possible financial spin- 
ofl& from the research." He 
criticized the British Govern- 
ment for failing to point out 
such possibilities in its promo- 
tional material to encourage 
industry* and academics to bid 
for Strategic Defence Initia- 
tive (SDI) contracts. 

Already there was one clear 
example of a scientist whose 
work in the field of nuclear 
power stations had been ap- 
propriated and suppressed, he 
said. 

Mr Walton last week orga- 
nized a seminar attended by 
representatives from the busi- 
ness and university sectors 
considering involvement in 
SDI. 

At the seminar a paper by 


Mr Bill Davies, assistant di- 
rector of the policy unit in the 
Minisuy of Defence's SDI 
participation office, was read. 
It referred to the unpublished 
memorandum of understand- 
ing between the British and 
US governments. 

On the subject of intellectu- 
al property rights it said.-“It is 
not at present possible to 
provide in full detail the 
provisions contained in the 
memorandum of understand- 
ing and administrative ar- 
rangements as regards 
protection and use of informa- 
tion and the exercise of securi- 
ty and technology transfer 
controls. This is due to the 
classification of the docu- 
ments containing the relevant 
detail” 

Mr Davies went on to make 
a distinction between back- 
ground and foreground 
information. 

“That distinction means 
that only work which was 
already patented or copyright- 
ed at the beginning of the 
research is protected. 

“Most of the British firms 
involved are manufacturing 
firms whose research is done 
at a loss. It is only viable if 
subsequently it leads 10 a 
manufacturing contract. SDI 
contracts do not offer this.” 

The dangers to scientists are 
also considerable, as has been 
demonstrated by the case of 
an American physicist Dr 
Andrew Sessler, who had his 
work, which was considered 
Nobel Prize standard, 
classified. 

“Academic reputations de- 
pend on the papers a scientist 
can publish; classification can 
foil that” Mr Walton said. 



Jopling to

Telecom 

shares 

forfeited 

By Cliff Feltham 

Time has run out for 1,500 
British Telecom shareholders 
who failed to pay the final 
instalment on their shares. As 
a result, many have missed the 
chance of malting a profit of op 
to £800 on their holding. 

The Government has taken 
over all the sharesand sold the 
block of about 600,000 in the 
stock market, collecting the 
profit which would otherwise 
have been made by the small 
investors. 

Shareholders should have 
paid the third and filial Instal- 
ment of 40p in April to bring 
the total outlay to 130p. 

The Department of Trade 
and Industry said: “We have 
no idea why people did not pay 
up. The bankers sent out three 
reminders, oue of them record- 
ed delivery. We jnst assume 
people have moved and not 
bothered to notify anyone of a 
change of address, or perhaps 
they have died. 

A letter has now gone out 
saying that the shares have 
been forfeited and the 90p 
already paid will be returned 
to them, wherever they are,” 

The shareholders concerned 
all held between 200 and 800 
shares. 

When British Telecom was 
privatized in December 1984 
there was a dear warning that 
failure to pay the instalments, 
would result in shares being 
forfeit There are now about 
l£ million shareholders in 
British Telecom bat the job of 
tracking them down is a 
headache for most big 
companies. 

Many people are also owed 
winnings from Ernie, the pre- 
mium bond scheme. At the last 
count about 57,595 prizes were 
unclaimed, some since 1957, 


the year it was launched, with 
seven prizes each worth 
£5,000. 


Lawyers’ fees 


‘Pay on results’ proposal 


to examine 
state-funded 


The Law Society is tostudy 
the contingency fee system in 
the United States as part of the 
society’s review of ways to 
fund litigation excluded from 
the legal aid scheme. 

In the wake of the radical 
report published last Friday 
on legal aid by a team of 
government officials, the soci- 
ety is setting up its own 
working party 
alternatives to 
litigation. 

Mr Andrew Lockley, the 
society’s litigation secretary, 
said: “The report raises issues, 
which provide an opportunity 
for- a review of. a lot of 
practices and rules which have 
applied^ • * 

The .'Contingency, .fee. 
scheme, under which lawyers' 
take on a case for nothing: but 
recoup a percentage of the 
damages if the litigant is 
successful, is one area to be 
examined. 

Another will be the feasibil- 
ity of a contingency fund, that 
the idea of which is supported 
by the Social Democratic 


Party/Uberal Alliance- 

Under such a fond, which 
would be a self-financing legal 
assistance scheme, would-be 
litigants could apply for funds. 
If their claim in the courts was - 
successful, they would have to 
pay a proportion of the dam- 
ages to the fond. 

Such a fond could help in 
borderline cases not now eligi- 
ble for legal aid or with dasss 
actions, such as victims of 
vaccine damage. 

The legal aid team proposed 
that solicitors should no long- 
er give publicly funded legal 
advice.which it said should be 
provided by- dozens' advice 
bureaux. 

Final case on 
legal aid . 

The Bar and Law Society 
will scrutinize the 
Government's revised pay of- 
fer for criminal legal aid fees 
this week and prepare final 
responses to be submined as 
part of the fast stage in the pay 
negotiations. 


The Lord Chancellor is 
believed to have offered solici- 
tors a pay package amounting 
to 1 1.5 per cent and the Bar 
about 10 per cent, to include 
the 5 per cent paid in ApriL 

Early soundings indicate 
that solicitors, who appear to 
have achieved a bener deal, 
would be unlikely to return to 
court to seek higher fees. 

The Bar, which will vote at 
its annual meeting on July 26, 
may be swayed by the pros- 
pect of a new pay review body, 
held out by the Lord 
Chancellor. 

Neither side would com- 
ment officially on the offers. 

One theory was the higher 
overheads solicitors have to 
pay, compared to barristers. 
Another was that solicitors 
put forward a stronger and 
better-argued case for their 
pay claim and may be more 
likely to return to court. 

But Lord Hailsham's spe- 
cial adviser. Mr Sandy Grey, 
is believed to consider neither 
case stronger than the other.

Britons are armchair sports fans, poll shows 


By Mark Dowd 

Most Britons are armchair compared with football, 
sports fans, a MORI poll has 
shown. Nine in 20 of those 
interviewed said they had 
watched sport on television in 
the past year, but only 25 per 
cent had made the effort to go 
to a match or tournament. 


MOR( asked: Wikii of these things have you done in the past year?’ 

ATTEND MAJOR 


More than three-quarters of 
those questioned had seen 
snooker on television in the 
past year, making it by far the 
most popular choice, even 


Men are eight times more 
likely to attend a football 
game and five times more 
likely to go to a county cricket 
or Test fixture than women. 

Furthermore, the figures 
disclose a higher percentage of

the six sports listed, with the 
exception of darts. -

Timeshare 
group sets 
out to curb 
hard sell 

By Christopher Wannan 

Property Correspondent 

A new body of some of the 
biggest names in timesharing 
is to be launched this week to 
provide a powerful voice in 
this increasingly popular but 
controversial holiday 
industry. 

It reflects both die growth of 
the industry and the need to 
improve its image in the light 
on bad publicity over hard-sell ; 
techniques, poor management 
and the failure of some resorts, 
particularly overseas, to live 
up to their promises. 

The Timeshare Developers 
Group is an association of 
developers including Barra tt, 
Wimpey. Hennings and Euro-, 
pean Ferries, who have built a 
sizable proportion of 
timeshare units, which people 
purchase for a specific week or 
weeks in the year, m Britain 
and Europe. 

While acknowledging that 
the industry has attracted 
criticism, some of it justified, 
the developers argue that most 
of timeshare owners are happy 
with their purchases and that 
any problems that arise should 
be solved by the individual 
developer concerned. 

It is estimated that there are 
1.500 timeshare resorts in 45 
countries, with about 40 in 
Britain and more than 60,000 
British owners. The number is 
growing, and the art of persua- 
sion is becoming more sophis- 
ticated in its hard-sell 
techniques. 

The unsolicited letters ar- 
riving at thousands of homes, 
which- begin “you have been 
awarded £400 cash,” or a 
video recorder or microwave 
and insist that there is no 
obligation, lead to long pre- 
sentations of h resort and 
pressure to buy before the 
award is handed over. 

This is one problem that the 
existing timeshare organiza- 
tions are attempting to tackle, 
trying to make sure that there 
is a cooling-off period before 
the purchaser has to sign on 
the dotted line. 

The European Holiday 
Timeshare Association was 
set up early this year as a rival 
to the British Properly 
Timeshare Association, so 
that now there will be three 
bodies claiming to speak for 
the industry. 

Colonel Geoffrey Gilhead, 
secretary general of the Euro- ’ 
pean association, said they 
were concerned about con- 
sumer protection and the rep- 
utation of the industry. They 
were determined to do some- 
thing about the hard scIL 


Jail ‘slopping 
out’ predicted 
to year 2000 

Thousands of prisoners in 
Britain's jails will still be 
“slopping out" in the year 
2000, the National Associa- 
tion for the Care and Resettle- 
ment of Offenders (Nacro) 
says today. In a briefing paper. 
Sanitation in Prisons, the 
charity attacked the prospect 
as “indefensible". 

A quarter of Britain’s pris- 
oners are locked in their cells 
overnight with a chamber pot 
as their only sanitation. When 
they “slop out" in the morn- 
ing, the stench of urine and 
excrement pervades the pris- 
ons, Nacro said. 

The Chief Inspector of Pris- 
ons has described the arrange- 
ments as “uncivilised, un- 
hygienic and degrading”. 

Miss Vivien Stem, Nacro's 
director, saicL“Al though the 
Government has undertaken 
the largest prison binding - 
programme this century, 
thousands of prisoners will be 
slopping out in the year 2000. 

“This represents an inde- 
fensible set of priorities. Pris- 
oners must have access to 
proper sanitation, not just for 
hygienic reasons but for the 
preservation of dignity."

old boy died and 35 other 
parisbonos were injured and

ment, according to reports 
retrieved by Amnesty Interna- 
tional at the weekend. 

It was the fourth account of 
attacks by government forces 
on church congregations gath- 
ered to pray in commemora- 
tion of the tenth mmiveisary of 
tbe'Soweto uprising. 

It occurred in the Ciskei

theory is not covered by the 
regulations of the current state 
of emergency declared by 
Pretoria. 

Security men are said to

sembly at the Men Methodist 
Church in Mdairtsane, the 
major town of the region, 
lashing ont in all directions 
with whips. 

The 14-year-old boy, whose

from head injuries after the 
attack. One unconfirmed re- 
port said that one other person

fears , are growing that a 
renewed purge of Mack trade 
unionists has began. In Lon- 
don the British TUC said it 
had received reports of a major 
operation which was bringing 
a new wave of arrests. 

Mr Jay Naidoo, the leader 
of the Council of South Afri- 
can Trade Unions (Cosato), is 
thought to be -.among the 
detainees. The leader of 
Cosatn, which dates half a 
million members, is said to 
have been tracked down ted 
arrested after going into hid-

cy was declared. 

Mr Moses Mayakiso, tbe 
general secretary of the Metal

According to the Bureau, 
the police shot dead four ANC

In Crossroads, there have

over foe past month and a

foe Government's decision to 
raze the camp and resettle

The Minister of Law and 
Order, Mr Louis Le Grange, 
confirmed az tbe weekend that 
Mr Zwdakhe Sisulu, the edi- 
tor of the weekly New Nation 
newspaper, had been detained 
last Friday. Mr Sisulu is foe 
son „of Mr Walter Sisulu, a 
senior figure in foe ANC, who 
has. been in prison with Mr 
Mandela for more than 20 
years. 

On Saturday, his wife, 
Zodwa. alleged that four 
armed white men. two of them 
wearing balaclavas,, broke into 
their house in foe early hours 
of Friday, and told her hus- 
band: “Pack some clothes, but 
not for a holiday in Mau- 
ritius.” 

The men then drove away- 
with her husband, shouting' 
“that I would see him again 
next year”, Mrs Sisulu said. 

Late on Saturday night, Mr 
Le Grange at last acknowl- 
edged that Mr Sisulu was in 
detention, describing his 
wife's account of her hus- 
band's arrest as “exaggerated" 
and designed to “discredit the 
police”. 

The Labouring Monitoring 
Group, an independent body, 
estimated at the weekend that 
920 trade unionists were in 
detention, including 183 shop 
stewards and officials de- 
tained individually and about 
740 workers detained en mas- 
se while on strike. 



Cossiga to 
hold talks 
on Rome 
coalition 

From Peter Nichols 
Rome 

President Cossiga begins 
two-day round of consulta- 
tions tonight with political 
leaders in an attempt to fill foe 
political void left by Friday 
night’s resignation of Signor 
Bettino Craxf s Government 
The President's riow-mo- 
lion approach is indicative of 
foe difficulties left by foe fall 
of the coalition, whidi lasted 
nearly three years. It collapsed 
after a series of defeats in 
Parliament beca use of increas- 
ing tension between its two 
main components — Signor 
Craxf s Socialist Party and the 
Christian Democrats. 

The weekend brought no 
respite in the recriminations 
between the parties, which 
remain foe joint foundation of 
any lasting governmental 
formula. 

President Cossiga will prob- 
ably leave his decision on who 
he should call to try and lead a 
government until Wednesday 
or Thursday. He believes he 
should let Signor Craxi make 
the first attemptBut Signor 
Craxf s conditions will be 
high. He would want a free 
hand in choosing his alliances 
and ministers, while keeping 
the prime ministership. 

If his conditions are not 
met, and he is unable to form a 
new coalition in foe wayifoat 
he wants, he might open foe 
board for a minority Christian 
Democrat administration un- 
til foe finance Bill is approved 
and then review the situation 
in January. 

The Christian Democrats, 
however, are making bad- 
tempered noises about Signor 
Craxi’s intentions, because 
they say he is obliged by a 
gentlemen's agreement to 
Band over the prime minister- 
ship to them well before foe 
first Parliament comes to an 
end in two years' time. Signor 
Craxi denies that any such 
agreement exists.

EEC confusion hits Howe’s mission 




■' ? 


FYom Richard Owen 
Brussels 

The EECs impending dia- 
logue with Pretoria ran into 
immediate trouble at the 
weekend as officials expressed 
dismay about the confusion 
surrounding foe decision by 
The Hague summit to delay 
sanctions against South Africa 
for three months while the 
dialogue is conducted. 

Tte decision to review sanc- 
tions again tty September 
could deepen differences and 
some diplomats fear tbe con- 
troversy wifl be reopened in 
an even more damaging form. 

’ “The best hope is that either 
Sir Geoffrey Howe’s mission 
will succeed, or that events in 
the next few months will alter 
the pictnre for foe better and 
make a decision on sanctions 
unnecessary,” one EEC diplo- 
mat said. “But I don’t holdout 
much hope on either front”. 

The ambiguity lies not in 
foe agreed statement, but rath- 
er in the verbal understand- 
ings surrounding it. 

Tbe Dutch Prune Minister, 
Mr Rural Lubbers, who hands 


over the presidency of foe 
EEC Council of Ministers to 
Britain tomorrow, thought he 
had secured an undertaking 
from Britain and West Ger- 
many — the two countries 
most strongly opposed to 
sanctions — that they would 
refrain from blocking sanc- 
tions if Sir Geoffrey’s attempt 
to create foe conditions lead- 
ing to the end of apartheid 
failed 

But the communique says 
the EEC “might” have to lake 
sanctions by banning tbe im- 
port of South African coal. 


not thought there was a dear 
commitment from Mrs 
Thatcher and Herr Kohl to 
sanctions in three months' 
time. 

Portugal, which has 600,000 
of its nationals in South 
Africa, supported Britain and 
Germany. But France, Italy 
and Spain took a cautious 
position, and diplomats said 
they would have come off foe 
fence if Britain and Germany 
had not been so adamantly 
against sanctions. 

Mrs Thatcher argued at the 
summit that sanctions would 


steel and gold coins and benefit the Soviet Union, the 
forbidding new investment. world's alternative supplier of 
Mrs Thatcher and Chancel- minerals and metals, and 
lor Kohl insist that even these- would endanger the 120,000 
relatively mild sanctions are British jobs dependent on 


far from automatic, and that 
“might 1 ” means what it toys. 

The countries Much went to 
Tbe Hague determined to ob- 
tain a decision on sanctions 
-indoded Ireland, Greece, 
Denmark and The 
Netherlands. 

Dr Garret FitzGerald, the 
Irish Prime Minister, said he 
would not have agreed to 
delayed sanctions if be had 


trade' with South Africa. But 
Mis Thatcher also underlined 
the risk of retialatory action by 
Pretoria against Europe. 

Officials said foe British 
presidency would get off to an 
' impressive start it Sir Geof- 
frey was able to fulfil the 
■ mission given to him by The 
Hague summit. - 

But there was.' an equal 
danger that if he failed foe 


European public would be- 
come further disillusioned 
with foe EECs ability to reach

Eye for an 
eye as Iran 
sees justice 
carried out 

By Hazhir Teimourian 

An Iranian woman who was 
Minded in both eyes by her 
jealous husband, and who was 
given permission by an Islamic 
court to inflict foe same 
wounds in retaliation, has 
done so, according to the 
authorities, except that sbe 
blinded him in one eye only. 

Tbe authorities have also 
revealed font amputations 
stonings have been carried out 
on many convicted thieves and 
adulterers. 

The news win disappoint 
those who had hoped that, 
with the passage of tone, 
Iran's revolution would 
mellow. 

The plight of the Mind 
woman was first reported out- 
side Iran in The Times in 
October 1984. 

Quoting the state-controlled 
press In Tehran, it was report- 
ed that foe punishment was 
expected to be televised and 
that Mrs Maryam Zavarei, 
aged 22, had chosen a pair of 
scissors as her instrument. 

It was also reported that her 
husband, Mr Taghi Zavarei, 
aged 24, who was alleged to 
have removed her eyes with a 
knife while aided by two men 
in tbe desert outside Tehran, 
had appealed against the 
court's decision to Ayatollah 
Khomeini, but that the 
Ayatollah was unlikely to 
intervene. 

Nothing was then beard of 
tbe case and it was assumed 
tbe authorities had prevented 
tbe punishment from being 
carried out to save foe country 
from embarrassing publicity 
abroad. 

Now, however, Tehran’s 
general prosecutor, Hoja- 
toleslam Mir Ernadi, has told 
stole television that of the 73 
cases of physical retribution 
decided tty the courts, 23 had 
been carried out, including one 
case of stoning to death for 
adultery and six of amputa- 
tions of tbe fingers for theft, 
carried out with an electric 
guillotine. 

The Hojatoleshun said it 
was useless to keep foe prac- 
tice secret for “foe enemies of 
Islam make propaganda 
against os in any case”. 

Regarding Mrs Zavarei, he 
said she bad decided to blind 
her husband in one eye only 
and had settled for financial 
compensation for the other of 
her eyes. He implied that the 
woman was not herself in- 
volved in the operation. 

The couple, who have three 
children, are again Irving 
together. 

Tbe press has also reported 
tire recent case of a convicted 
adulterer who was pardoned 
after wriggling out of a pit, 
where he was buried to the 
neck, while being stoned. Mr 
Amin Rahmati suffered 80 
hits before he was aide to 
escape. 

A judicial spokesman later 
said that an adulterer who had 
confessed to his crime would 
be able to escape punishment 
to this way, but those who had 
not confessed would be stoned

Peru leftists begin 
revenge bombings 


Lima (Reuter) — Left-wing 
guerrillas, apparently bent on 
a revenge campaign against 
foe Peruvian Government, 
bombed a police station and 
three offices of the ruling 
party, police said yesterday. 
They said rebels hurled dyna- 
mite at a Republican Guard 
police outpost in foe Lurigas- 
cho district on Saturday night. 

The police station was near 
the prison where foe Govern- 
ment says security forces kill- 
ed 1 24 accused Sendero Lum- 
inoso (Shining Path) guerrilla 
inmates while crushing a mu- 
tiny last week. 

President Garcia last week 
accused the Republican 
Guard of executing Sendero 
inmates at the Lurigancho 
prison by shooting them in the 
head after they had been 
dragged out of foeir cell block. 

Sendero has warned it will 
retaliate for tbe crushing of the 
mutinies it led at Lurigancho 
and two other Lima area 
prisons, where government 
officials say 156 inmates died. 

Sendero has also warned it 
will kill 10 members of the 
ruling Social Democratic Am- 
erican Popular Revolutionary 
Alliance (Apra) for every dead 
Sendero inmate. 


Rebels set ablaze a super- 
market and bombed two pri- 
vate banks last night, police 
said. 

Nearly 8,000 people have 
been killed and Si billion 
(£666 million) in damage has 
been caused in Sendero's six- 
year insurgency.

German Chancellor. Hen- 
Willy Brandt, who relumed

Thankfully Dr. Borel was a much better^VHHMjjgMi 
doctor than he was a cocktail mixer. 

His most famous concoction was in fact 
mixture of pure alcohol, detergent, water and a t B b h H 
medicine which his research team had discovered 
called Cyclosporin. 

A mixture he threw down with alarming abandon.* 

Needless to say this potion made him rather dizzy 
but a blood sample taken some time later made him smile 
for quite another reason. 

For he had proven that Cyclosporin could be 
absorbed by the human body Something which previous 
tests with less interesting cocktails had failed to do. 

This new medicine (now reformulated] has since 
helped save the lives of thousands of people who have 
received organ transplants by dramatically reducing the 
risk of rejection. Together with improved medical and 
surgical techniques it’s made transplant surgery a highly 
successful method of treating life threatening illnesses, 
such as kidney failure. 

But better control of rejection is only one example of 
the ways pharmaceutical research has helped to make 
transplant surgery a successful reality 

Anaesthetics, antibiotics and medicines for control- 
ling virus and fungal infections also play an important part, 
although new medicines and surgical skills are still not the 
only vital ingredients. 

In Britain last year, well over 1,000 of those Jjfl 
waiting for a kidney transplant were unable to have 
one.The reason for this was a shortage of donor 
organs. ™ 


If the pharmaceutical industry .is going to carry the 
responsibility of research, the least you can do is carry a 
donor card.

J aruzelski declares new amnesty 

From Roger Boves — •/ 


From Roger Boves 
Wareaw 

General Wojciech Jaru- 
zelski. the Polish leader, de- 
claring the Solidarity oppo- 
sition to be a spent force, 
promised a new amnesty yes- 
terday for some of the 
country's 300 political pris- 
oners. 

The general was addressing 
the full congress of the Polish 
Communist Party, the first 
since the Solidarity era. 

The Iasi congress in July 
1981 was squeezed between 
Soviet, criticism that the Pol- 
ish communists were soft on 
socialism, and Solidarity pres- 
sure for rapid democratic 
change. 

This time Mr Mikhail 
Gorbachov, the Soviet leader, 
sits on the red plush rostrum 
in Warsaw, apparently ap- 
proving General Jaruzelski's 
blend of economic self-criti- 
cism. attacks on Solidarity 
and his confidence that some 
kind of soda] peace has been 
achieved io Poland. 

“The extremists have been 
totally defeated because they 
have lost social support,” said 
the general in a five-hour 



“A majority of former Soli- 
darity members are now ac- 
tive in the new trade unions, 
the Sqm (Parliament}, we 
even have some of them here 
today in ibis congress hall.” 

The calm in the nation, said 
the general, made it possible 
to consider a new political 
amnesty. For the past few 
months the Polish police have 


Mr Gorbachov sitting with 

been rounding up scores of 
underground activists and dis- 
sidents estimate that the toll of 
political prisoners — most of 
them in pre-trial arrests — 
have grown from about 200 in 
the New Year to well over 300. 

Even under the new amnes- 
ty. some of the leading prison- 
ers — such as Mr Zbigniew 
Bujak, the underground Soli- 
darity leader — will stay 
inside. 

“In a situation when the

idea of accord has become so 
broad and with the increasing 
social isolation of anti-social- 
ist groups, the Central Com- 
mittee is inclined to accept an 
easing of penal measures 
against the perpetrators of 
certain political offences in 
order to give those people 
another chance,” said General 
Jaruzelski. 

The amnesty will also in- 
clude some common crimi- 
nals and will probably be

There was almost no dissen-

formally announced on July 
22. Polish National Day. 

The Gorbachov style was 
most evident in the general's 
references to the Polish 
economy. 

Poland, he said, had entered 
a new -stage: the main goal was 
no longer to win political 
agreement but rather to fight 
on the socio-economic front. 
That meant better implemen- 
tation of economic reforms 
and the boost in productivity. 


The general criticized: 

• The some 40% of enter- 
prises which had not linked 
increased pay with better 
productivity: 

• Dishonest private business- 
men and speculators: 

• Bureaucrats who blocked 
innovation and discouraged 
new inventors: 

• The reluctance of Polish 
managers to accept individual 
responsibilities: 

• Too little initiative in for- 
eign trade. 

The reference to private 
businessmen was a bone 
thrown to Marxist hardliners 
who form a small but signifi- 
cant portion of the approxi- 
mately 1,700 delegates gather- 
ed in Warsaw's lowering 
Palace of Culture. 

• Demonstration dispersed: 
Polish riot police yesterday 
dispersed a few thousand Soli- 
darity demonstrators who 
spilled out of the city cathe- 
dral in Poznan, chanting anti- 
government slogans. 

The crowd had earlier lis- 
tened to a homily by Cardinal 
Jozef Glemp, the Polish Pri- 
mate. marking the 30th anni- 
versary of the shooting of a 
lew dozen Poznan workers in 
“bread and freedom” riots in 
1956. 

On Saturday, three promi- 
nent Solidarity activists were 
interrogated in Warsaw and 
Gdansk — Mr Lech Walesa, 
the former Solidarity leader, 
and advisers, Mr Jacek Kuron 
and Mr Janusz Onyskiewicz.

Yugoslav 
party 
goes for 
youth 

Belgrade (AFP) — Yugoslav 
Communist officials have 
elected a new, more youthful 
Central Committee, but have 
stuck to current policies rather 
than vote for economic 
reforms. 

The Central Committee has 
165 seats, 127 of which were 
filled by new officials, most of 
them under the age of 40. 

Delegates at the congress of 
the Communist League also 
elected on Saturday a new 23- 
member Praesidimn to head 
the League, a new Praesidhun 
leader, Mr Milanko Remmca, 
who replaces Mr Vidoje 
Zarkovjc, and a new secretary, 
Mr Radisa Gacic. 

The delegates, ignoring 
calls from the population for 
economic reform, gave a clean 
bill of health to an economy 
suffering from three-digit in- 
flation, an overseas debt of $20 
bQllon (£13 billion) and 18 per 
cent tmempfoymeut. 

The delegates professed sat-

Life may be easier 
for Soviet authors 

From Christopher Walker, Moscow 


Hopes of a slight lessening 
in the ideological and bureau- 
cratic siraighijackei restrain- 
ing all forms of modem Soviet 
literature have been raised by 
the replacement alter 15 years 
of Mr Geoigy Markov, aged 
75. the staunchly orthodox 
chief of the influential Soviet 
Writers* Union. 

The new first secretary of 
the union is Mr Vladimir 
Karpov, an author of patriotic 
novels about the Second 
World War and editor-in-chief 
of the Moscow literary maga- 
zine. A'ovr Mir (Sew World). 

The widely-predicted re- 
moval of Mr Markov, who is 
in hospital recovering from a 
stroke he suffered while read- 
ing his hardline opening 
speech at the union's annual 
congress in the Kremlin, has 
been accompanied by hints 
that the Kremlin is reviewing 
ways of reducing the role of 
the slate censorship body, 
Glavlit, and extending more 
control over published materi- 
al to editors. 

The latest moves in the 
lightly-controlled Soviet cul- 
tural world come amidst 
growing expectations that the 
influence of President 
Gorbachov and his intel- 
lectual wife. Raisa, will lead to 
a lessening of rigid bureaucrat- 
ic control over the artistic 
field. 

Saturday's change at the lop 
of what is regarded as the 
country's most conservative 
artistic union followed last 
month's dramatic shake-up in 


its film-making counterpart, 
in which Mr Lev Kulidzhanov 
was replaced after 20 years by 
controversial director. Mr EI- 
em Klimov, some of whose 
films were banned for several 
years. 

Soviet sources said yester- 
day that Mr Karpov was un- 
likely to sanction any sweep- 
ing changes, as his agreement 
with the orthodox position 
favoured by Mr Markov had 
been signalled when he took 
over the reading of the key- 
note opening speech after Mr 
Markov collapsed and had to 
be carried from the halL 

Mr Karpov, aged 64, was 
denounced and imprisoned 
while a military cadet for 
speaking of a personality cult 
around Stalin. He took over 
the editorship of Novy Mir in 
19SI and achieved notoriety 
in Moscow literary circles two 
years ago when it published a 
biting and thinly-disguised 
satire about the most popular 
Soviet artist, Ilya Glazunov. 

But Soviet sources express- 
ed optimism that the outspo- 
ken nature of many of the 
speeches at the congress would 
be reflected in a relaxation of 
some of the bureaucratic and 
censorship procedures which 
have stifled much Soviet cre- 
ative output in recent years. 

One of the strongest attacks 
against the activities ofGlavlit 
came from Mr Mikhail Nena- 
shev. the new head of the state 
publishing committee and for- 
mer editor of the daily Sovets- 
kava Rossi va. 


The sixth congress of 
PortngaTs^odalist Party has 
elected economist Senhor Vfe- 
or Constancio. aged 42, as its 
new leader and far struck afl 
references to Marxism and 
Karl Marx from its Declara- 
tion of Principles. 

Senhor Constancio succeeds 
Dr Mario Soares, who was 
elected President in February. 
The choice was no surprise — 
more than 80 per cent of 
delegates had already declared 
their intention to vote for 
Senhor Constancio rather 
than Senhor Jaime Gama, the 
former Socialist Foreign Min- 
ister, who had long been con- 
sidered the protege of Dr 
Soares and his choice to suc- 
ceed him. 

Senh or Gama said be would 
lead a “constructive minority 
within the party”. Both men 
said their main goal would be 
to make the Socialists once 
more the majority party In the 
country — a position it occu- 
pied until last October's par- 
fiameatary election when it 
lost 10 per cent of its votes to 
the newly-formed Democratic 
Renewal Party of former Pres- 
ident Ernies.

Chernobyl aftermath 

Russians still working 
to stop radiation spread 


Moscow (AFP-AP) — Soviet 
authorities are stepping up 
efforts to prevent a further 
spread of radiation from the 
debris around the Chernobyl 
nuclear reactor, Pravda re- 
ported yesterday. 

The official party newspa- 
per released details of the 
work being carried out to seal 
the No. 4 reactor, and said 
special squadrons of Antonov- 
12 Cyclone aircraft had been 
sent on cloud-busting mis- 
sions in an 18-mile radius 
above the plant for a week 
after the April 26 disaster to 
prevent rain that might have 
washed radioactive dust into 
water sources. 

Pravda said 92,000 people 

had been evacuated from the 

Chernobyl area, and teams of 
experts had been working 
around the dock for the past 
two months to stop radioac- 
tivity spreading through the 
sub-soil and atmosphere. 

The strickra reactor is now 
encased in 5,000 tonnes of 
lead, sand and other material 
to prevent further leaks. 

Most of the decontamina- 
tion work was finished by the 
beginning of June, but nearby 
woods were regularly being 
doused with chemicalsand the 


soil was being ploughed and

Madrid looks at Syria 
link in search for 
Palestine terror squad 


THE TIMES MONDAY JUNE 30 1986 


OVERSEAS NEWS 


?? tsi 


Spanish authorities yester- 
day were closely examining an 
apparent connection between 
Syria and the bomb that 
injured 13 people at the 
Madrid airport on Thursday. 

At the same time, police 
were searching for members of 
a Palestinian terrorist squad 
operating in Madrid. 

Its existence was revealed 
on -Saturday in a nationwide 
television interview by an 
Interior Ministry official. 

Police alleged that a Pales- 
tinian arrested last Friday in 
the capital in relation to the 
blast, Mr Nasser Hassan El 
Ali, is a lieutenant of A1 Fatah 
Uprising, the Palestinian ex- 
tremist group under the lead- 
ership of Mr Abu Musa. 

It is a splinter group of A1 
Fatah, based in Damascus 
with camps in the Bekah 
Valley, ft is believed to be 
financed by Syria. 

Police claim that before 
coming to Madrid, Mr Hassan 
E3 Ali went to Paris to carry 
out an attack on an El A1 
plane. . 

• JERUSALEM^ Mr Yitzhak 
Rabin, tbe Israeli Defence 
Minister has indirectly ac- 
cused Syria of responsibility 
for the bombing of the El AJ 
check-in desk in Madrid, the 
independent daily Haaretz 


From .Hairy DebeUus, Madrid 

that if Syria had wanted to 
prevent Abu Musa horn carry- 
ing out this operation, it could 
have done so. Syria provides 
coyer for the operations of the 
Abu Musa organization.’" Mr 
Rabin was quoted as .saying. 

He added: “Syria is the 

Sparta of the Middle East 

it practises tb.e politics of tbe 
cannon to the detriment of 
everybody, despite hs serious 
economic situation." 

Mr Rabin, who has previ- 
ously levelled similar accusa- 
tions against Syria, also 
warned Damascus against any 
attempt to launch a surprise 
attack on Israel. 

According to the Interior 
Ministry, the suspected terror- 
ist paid a Spaniard with a 
criminal record, Mr loaiac 
Manuel Jalafe, SI, 000 (£670) 
to carry a briefcase on an 0 Al 
flight bound from Madrid to 
Tel Aviv, tailing him ft con- • 
tained illegal drugs. 

The briefcase bomb went, 
off prematurely at the check- 
in counter of the Israeli airline 
in the international departures 
hall of the Madrid airport

flight was scheduled to take

Inside the EEC: 1 

Thatcher, still the 
sceptic in Europe 

From Richard Owen, Brussels 


Last December, when the 
British presidency of the 
Conned of Ministers was al- 
ready on the horizon. Lord 
GockfietiL the senior British 
Commissioner k Brussels, of- 
fered an impish view of Mrs 
Margin* Thatcher. 

Lord Cockfield has a dead- 
pan manner which sometimes 
makes ft difficult to know 
when he is jolting. Mrs 
Thatcher, be suggested, was 
so comktted a European that 
a giant stake of her should be 
erected on the cliffs of Dover, 
with a finger pointing to the 
Continent mid with die 
wonteThere iies our future” 
on (he pedestal 

Behind Lord * CockfiekTs

Thatcher is seen in most of die 





Lord Cockfield: Impish 
suggestion. 

EEC as a Eero-sceptic at best. 
. Britain's presidency, which 
begftts tomorrow, will show 
whether the British share any 
of the Euro-idealism of the 
Dutch, who held the presiden- 
cy for the first half of the year. 
Britain hopes to use its period 
in the chair to advance Mrs 
Thatcher's aims in stimulating 
enterprise in Europe and 
dashing the red tape winch 
encumbers business initiative. 

But what of the wider aims 
of the EEC? Part of the answer, 
is that Britain, whether ft likes 
it or not, is obliged to imple- 
ment recent modest EEC re- 
forms designed ultimately to 
lead to closer European inte- 
gration. The as sum pti on is 
that all EEC citizens will 
acquire a wider loyalty to 
Europe beyond narrow nation-

Britain takes over the 
cheap air fares fight 

From Our Own Correspondent 


EEC transport ministers 
meeting in Luxembourg will 
make a final effort today to 
reach agreement on cheaper 
air fores and the liberalization 
of European air transport 
before the EEC Commission 
carries out its threat to take 
airlines to court for “illegal 
practices”. 

Britain, which tomorrow 
takes over the presidency of 
the EEC Council of Ministers, 
is strongly in fevour ofliberal- 
ization. Other countries, how- 
ever, are resisting the US- 
styled deregulation. 

Mr John Moore, the British 
Minister of Transport who 
tomorrow becomes the chair- 
man of the EEC Transport 
Council for the next six 
months, will urge the Council 
to agree to moves towards 
deregulation even though the 
Commission has threatened to 
take legal action if airlines 
continue to violate the Treaty 
of Rome by operating price- 
fixing cartels. 

Bniain has been preparing 
its conduct of Council meet- 
ings for the past year and has 
seconded a senior Foreign 


Office official to Brussels to 
plan its approach to key issues 

Tbe air fores issue should 
have been settled 10 days ago, 
but Mrs NelieSmit-Kroes, the 
Dutch Transport Minister, ad- 
journed the deadlocked Tran- 
sport Council 

Two other crucial issues 
arise this week at the start of 
the British presidency — the 
impending trade war with 
Washington and the future of 
the EEC budget. 

Tomorrow Washington is 
to impose higher tariffs 
against EEC food exports in 
retaliation for what it sees as 
discrimination against Ameri- 
can form products in Europe. 
Officials said the Commission 
would respond with restric- 
tions on American wheat, rice 
and corn gluten feed, but 
would delay these sanctions 
for two weeks. 

Later thls.week the Europe- 
an Court is to rule on action 
taken by the Council of Minis- 
ters, with strong support from 
Britain, to have extra spend- 
ing voted by the European 
Parliament in the 1986 budget 
declared illegal. 


within six hours on Saturday 
in the Basque country, accord- 
ing to reports published here 
yesterday (Harry Debelius 
writes). 

On the same day police 
claimed to have broken up 
two Basque terrorist squads, 
arresting three people. 

Two of the four bombs were 
booby-traps, set to attack po- 
licemen who came to the aid 
of their injured companions. 

The dead civil guard who 
was killed was part of a police 
unit whose van was hit on the 
same road where the second 
blast occurred, one hour later, 
as they were on their way to 
help. 

The first explosion demol- 
ished a National Police patrol 
car in the red light district of 
Bilbao, injuring four police- 
men and a passer-by. 

The second blast was near 
the northern coastal town of 
Zarauz, smashing into the side 
of a civil guard jeep and 
injuring one civil guard. 

One hour later, about 2’A 
miles away. The Third bomb 
went off on a curve on the 
same road, demolishing a 
Civil Guard van, killing one 
Civil Guard and injuring five 
others. 

The fourth bomb exploded 
within a few hundred yards of 
the same place, as police 
searched the area.

Smith back to face split in his MPs 


. From Jan Raath 
Harare 

The parliamentary caucus 
of the white opposition party 
of Mr lan Smith, The former 
Rhodesian Prime Minister, 
meets here on Wednesday to 
attempt to resolve a threat- 
ened split among its MPs. 

Zimbabwe's new parlia- 
mentary year opened on June 
24, and before it is out, the 
Conservative Alliance of Zim- 
babwe, the descendant of Mr 


Smith's Rhodesian From, 
may find entrenched white 
representation in Parliament 
extinct, and the one-party 
state a fail accompli . 

In April next year the seven- 
year immunity expires of 
clauses in the constitution 
guaranteeing the 20 white 
seats in the House of Assem- 
bly and freedom of political 
association. Amendments to 
The two provisions at the 
moment require the impossi- 


ble assent of afl 100 MPs. 
After April changes will need 
only 70 votes. 

When Parliament opened 
last week, the ruling Zanu (PF) 
party sat with 66 MPs. its 
strongest representation yet. 
Steady progress in unity talks 
between Zanu (PF) and Mr 
Joshua Nkomo's Zapu party, 
support from sidestream par- 
ties, and internal rifts within 
the Conservative Alliance 
seem certain to assure Mr 
Robert Mugabe, the Prime 


Minister, of the 70 he needs. 

Mr Smith returned last 
week from a trip to London 
and Vancouver and will chair 
the caucus meeting on Wed- 
nesday. During his absence, 
Mr Charles Duke crossed the 
floor to Zanu (PF). becoming 
the party’s first white MP. 

A week later party elders 
managed to dissuade another 
four young MPs from follow- 
ing Mr Duke, at least until Mr 
Smith returned. 


Uganda 
moves to 
control 
imports 

From Charles Harrison 
Nairobi 

Tbe Ugandan Government 
is taking over the Importation 
of essential commodities in a 
bid to bring down prices and 
end profiteering which has 
contributed to tbe country's 
inflation rate of more than 100 
per cent a year. 

President Yoweri Museveni, 
angered by what be regards as 
an organised attempt to frus- 
trate his Government's re- 
formist socialist policies, has 
accused traders of hoarding 
supplies in order to force 
prices op. 

Sugar recently imported on 
Government orders is sup- 
posed to sell at 1,200 shillings 
(£1.70) a kilogram, but has 
been fetching ten times that 
price on the black market. 
Beer, which is sold from the 
brewery at 1,200 shillings a 
bottle, costs up to four times 
that figure in central Kampala, 
five miles away. 

The Government's reaction 
has been to order a new 
distribution system for essen- 
tial items like sugar, with local 
village committees required to 
nominate their chosen traders. 

Bat there are problems in 
implementing, soda a novel 
system, which by-passes nor- 
mal commercial channels, and 
the result has been empty 
shops. 


in tbe reform process, was 
appointed to Brussels by Mrs 
Thatcher as a fellow Euro- 
sceptic, but has since turned 
into an almost jhnatical Euro- 
vhdonary. He is die driving 
force behind die plan to com- 
plete the internal market — 
with no internal trade barriers 
and few frontier controls — by I 
1992, a target date written into ! 
die Treaty of Rome at the 
Lsxemboarg samnriL 

At Luxembourg EEC lead- 
ers — Mrs Thatcher included. 
— put their signatures to 
reforms in EEC decision mak- 
ing which go by the un gainly 
name of the Single European 
Act. 

The Italians and otter en- 
thusiasts had wanted an act of 
European muon, which Britain 
resisted. But anti-Marketeevs 
believe the term “Single Act” 
nonetheless obscures the fact 
that as the EEC edges down 
the road to unity, national 
sovereignty is being gradually 
ceded from national parlia- 
ments to Brussels. 

Britain is committed to im- 
plementing die Luxembourg 
reforms during its presidency 
over the next six months. 

Recent reports in both the 
Commons and the Lords re- 
flect belated parliamentary 
anxiety about the Single Act 
Anti-Marketeers can hardly 
argue that the reforms 
which include majority voting 
in the Conndl of Ministers, 
increased powers for the Euro- 
pean Pa rliament and machin- 
ery for EEC foreign policy, hi 
the past often ineffective — 
have been introduced by 
stealth. 

But critics argue that lead- 
ers have begun a process 
which, win lead inexorably — 
since EEC law takes primacy 
over national law — to a store 
closely integrated Europe. 
Once the Single Act has been 
ratified by all EEC parlia- 
ments, tiie Twelve wifl have 
embarked on the road to an 
integrated Europe in which 
power increasingly rests with a- 
streamlined Council of Minis-, 
ters — in which Britain can be 1 
outvoted — and the bureaucra- 
cy- of the Commission in 
Brussels.

Security alert 
at Sri Lanka 
naval base for 
guerrilla mines 

From Vijhba Yapa, Colombo 


The Karainagar naval base 
in northern Sri Lanka has 
been placed under a security 
alert after reports that trained 
frogmen belonging to Tamil 
separatist groups have arrived 
in the area, according to the 
Weekend newspaper. 

The Sunday paper said that 
the security forces have been 
tojd lo look out for attempts to 
mine marine installations by 
men trained in the Indian 
stale of Tamil Nadu in under 
water warfare. 

The paper also said that 
security authorities were con- 
cerned about the presence of 
unidentified aircraft over se- 
curity installations in the 
Northern Province. 

The report said that early 
this month, the aircraft had 
appeared four days in succes- 
sion and sometimes descend- 
ed to very low altitudes. 

Radar at Palaly Airport in 
JalTna had Hacked a plane on 
one occasion and had called it 
on radio but had received no 
response. 

The report said that sources 
added that the violations were 
by military aircraft and not 
civilian planes. 

The Weekend hinted that 
the planes were from India by 
saying that two months ago 
the Tamil Nadu Fisheries 
Minister had told the slate's 


jislalive Assembly that 
Delhi had instructed the Indi- 
an Air Force to patrol Indian 
airspace around the narrow 
Falk Straits which separates 
Sri Lanka from India. 

Meanwhile there are con- 
flicting reports as to who is 
responsible for the blasting of 
a bridge on the Paramhan- 
mullaiivu road in the North- 
ern Province, which was being 
used mainly by buses plying 
between Jaffna and Colombo. 

The Ministry of National 
Security says it was destroyed 
by Tamil guerrillas on Satur- 
day while sources in Jaffna 
said the bridge was destroyed 
by the security forces to ensure 
ihat all buses to and from 
Colombo pass through Killi- 
nochchi, where the army has a 
strong base and where spot 
checks could be carried out. 

• Deaths in dashes: At least 
10 people were killed on 
Saturday in separate clashes 
between, troops and Tamil 
guerrillas (Reuter reports). 

A military spokesman said 
two soldiers and a civilian 
driver died when a guerrilla 
landmine blasted a van in an 
army convoy at Kiiuloltuwa. 

The spokesman said seven 
guerrillas were killed and a 
soldier wounded in a battle 
with security forces in Jaffna 
district. 


Vote on 
Shin Bet 
inquiry 
avoided 

From Ian Murray 
Jerusalem 

’ The Israeli Cabinet yester- 
day avoided taking a vote on 
whether to call for an inquiry 
into the country's counter- 
intelligence agency. Shin Bet 
Despite much sabre-rattling 
before the meeting by some 
Labour ministers, who threat- 
ened to bring down the coali- 
tion Government if no inquiry 
was agreed, the meeting 
readied no conclusion and the 
matter will be taken up again 
at a special Cabinet session 
later this week. 

By then the Knesset and the 
High Court of Justice wilt 
have had a chance to give their 
opinion on the question. To- 
day Mr Shimon Peres, the 
Prime Minister, will have to 
answer four no confidence' 
motions in the Knesset on his 
Government's handling of the 
afTair. 

At the same time the High 
Court is to hear three petitions 
calling for an inquiry and 
asking that presidential par- 
dons to Shin Bet agents in- 
volved should be quashed. 

The fact that no vote was 
taken at yesterday’s meeting 
shows that the Labour minis- 
ters who want an inquiry knew 
they were outnumbered. Mr 
Ya’acov Tsur, the Absorbtion 
Minister, insisted after the 
meeting that the campaign 
bad only just started. 

He said public opinion 
would eventually force the 
Government to order an in- 
vestigation. 


Governor of 
Thai riot 
island sacked 

Bangkok (AFP) — The Gov- 
ernor of Phuket has been 
transferred out of the province 
after riots rocked the southern 
Thai island last week. 

The move came after com- 
munity leaders lud criticized 
Mr Sanong Rod pot hong for 
failing to fake adequate mea- 
sures fo cope with a riot at a 
controversial chemical plant 
East Monday. 

The Government imposed a 
slate of emergency after the 
riot, in which an estimated 
100.001) demonstrators set fire 
to the plant and damaged a 
hotcL 

Protesters were concerned 
that environmental pollution 
from the plant would harm the 
island's tourist industry. 


Media to be briefed 
on Hong Kong talks 

From David Bona via, Hong Kong 


Chinese and Hong Kong 
delegates met yesterday to 
discuss the reversion of sover- 
eignly over the British-ruled 
territory to China in 1997. 

The meeting in Shenzhen, 
the Chinese “special economic 
zone" adjacent to Hong Kong, 
was described as a session of 
the political sub-group of the 
joint basic law-drafting com- 
mittee working out arrange- 
ments for future political 
institutions. 

Hong Kong leaders have 
welcomed the Chinese agree- 
ment to brief reporters on the 
progress of the talks, which are 
understood to cover direct 
elections for legislative and 
executive bodies. 


Asked about the controver- 
sial nuclear power plant to be 
built at Daya Bay in China, 
dose to Hong Kong, a Chinese 
spokesman said China was 
just as concerned about safety 
measures as Hong Kong. 

Meanwhile talks are due 
today in Peking between Por- 
tuguese negotiators and Chi- 
nese officials on the future of 
Macao, a tiny Portuguese- 
ruled enclave on China's 
south coast. 

It is believed the settlement 
will be based on the Anglo- 
Chincse agreement over Hong 
Kong, which guarantees SO 
years of capitalism and a 
Western-style legal system af- 
ter 1997. 


The Japanese elections 


Squabbles along road to victory 


-. i 


From David Watts 
Wakayama, Japan ■ 

“He’s really playing dirty, 
but I can’t do that as the 
incumbent.** Mr Chikara Hi- 
gashi, a short dapper man ia 
an electric- blue soft, is waiting 
to address women workers at a 
snail factory managed by~a 
friend. 

It is not opposition candi- 
dates be is worried about in 
this rural constituency, which 
looks like southern Italy with 
its endless groves of mandarin 
manges climbing the sides of 
every mountain and a ™*il 
fishing town nestling in each 
inlet. 

Mr Higashi's most serious 
challenge comes from a fellow 
forma 1 bureaucrat cutting his 
political teeth as an indepen- 
dent before getting the full 
endorsement of the ruling 
Liberal Democratic Party. 

The contest with opposition 
candidates in this second con- 
stituency of Wakayama is 
almost incidental to the inter- ' 
party confrontation within the 
LDP. 

The leading opposition par- 
ties are not running a suffi- 
cient number of candidates 
nationally to a win a majority 
in the Diet 

The interest in the election 
centres on the size of the ruling 
party's majority and its ability 
to control independently the 
Diet’s most important commit- 
tees. 

On the national level, it is a 
contest between LDP factions 
within the party to increase 
their size and influence. Local- 
ly, it is a family battle between 
relatives and contacts of the 
‘two men who were both born In 
the constituency: Mr Higashi 
in Shingn, on one side of the 
Kii peninsula, and Mr Minoru 
Noda on the other. 

Mr Higashi is part of the 
faction w Erich supports Mr 





Mr Higashi in front of his campaign van, with the announcers who recite his virtues. 


Yasnhfro Nakasone, the Prime 
Minister. Mr Noda is a follow- 
er of the former Prune Minis- 
ter Mr Takeo Fnkuda, a 
deadly political enemy of Mr 
Nakasone. 

Both candidates previously 
worked . for the Ministry of 
finance and were launched on 
their political careers by a 
party elder who gave them the 
necessary hitrodnctions for 
their ministry jobs. Ninety- 
three LDP candidates are 
former bureaucrats this year. 

In Japanese politics, per- 
sonal affiliations like Mr 
Higashi's count more than 
almost anything else except 
money, and that is needed in 
huge amounts. The legal limit 
for total expenditure by all 
candidates for the election is 


lUlion yen 

Mr Higashi ran as an 
independent in the 1983 elec- 
tions with behind-the-scenes 
support from the LDP and 
beat an LDP incumbent for his 
seat Once he proved himself 
by winning die third of the 
constituency’s three seats he 
was officially endorsed by the 
party. 

In this election Mr Noda b 
hoping to repeat the process 
and the battle is well and truly 
joined with Mr Higashi. Nei- 
ther the Communists nor the 
Socialists entered a candidate 
last time and neither is expect- 
ed to do so this election in spite 
of the area's problems which, 
in other countries, would mean 
bad news for a ruling party. 
Not in Japan, whore none of 


the opposition can come dose 
to the formidable LDP ma- 
chine and its power to dispense 
projects and cash. 

Wakayama’s difficulties are 
those of agricultural areas 
elsewhere bat with some spe- 
cial Japanese- twists: young 
people are leaving for Osaka 
and Wakayama City, the pro- 
vincial capital: the costs of 
growing mandarins and over- 
production, coupled with the 
prospect of cheaper imports 
from the United States under- 
mining the whole industry, 
make the fruit's future bleak. 

Import controls on o3 make 
Wakayama's energy costs un- 
necessarily high. A litre of 
petrol costs 120 yen (47p) in 
Osaka and 145 yen(57p) here. 
It would be cheaper to import 


ready-refined petrol frw® Sin- 
gapore or Malaysia. Oil firms 
are allowed to import only > 
per cent of their refining 
capacity as finished products' 
from abroad. 

The refinery in Arna is

Mr Higashi has already 

undertaken one successful ne- 
gotiating mission to the US for 
the Government, seeking to 
hold the lid on American 
imports. Mr Noda is using 
that against him. The nriSSKHX 
was a failure, Mr Noda tells 
voters, and was an example of 
bow Mr Higashi is more 
interested in inter n a ti o n al af- 
fairs than local issues. 

Indeed, Mr Higashi makes 
great play of bis international 
connections. He constantly 
drops big political names fur 
the lady factory workers who 
seem unmoved until he telb 
th«™ that he shook hands 
three times with the Princess 
of Wales and they are all more 
attractive than she. Indeed, 
they are — as voters. 

Mr Higashi is baring a 
rather quiet day. The crowds 
are small in Arita. which is Mr 
Noda’s territory, and he has to 
work hard for every vote, 
greeting voters with white- 
gloved hands, symbolic of 
“dean hands and a pare 
heart*’. 

“That’s really dirty tactics 
to claim that I don’t pay 
attention to local issues. I can 
claim that I’m in a position to 
negotiate internationally on 
problems which are local ones •£ 
in Wakayama,” he says. 

The voters show no great 
emotion one way or the other. 
Whether or not Mr Higashi' 
wins, the post-election Gov- 
ernment will still be LDP. 


Party success boosts Gandhi 


Delhi (Reuter) — Mr Rajiv 
Gandhi's flagging political for- 
tunes have been boosted by 
successes scored by his Con- 
gress (I) party in elections to 
India's upper house. 

The pany won all 30 seats it 
contested yesterday, including 
one in Punjab where it fought 
off a stiff challenge from Sikh 
militants. 

The 15 other seats at stake 
in the upper house, whose 
members are elected by 
India's state assemblies, were 
split between seven other 
national or regional parties. 

Congress (I) maintained its 


total of 1 52 seats in the 244- 
seat Rajya Sabha despite fears 
that growing dissidence within 
the party might lead to covert 
support for opposition can- 
didates. 

In the last partial upper 
house elections three montiis 
ago. Congress (I) won only 
five of 12 seats it contested. 
The setback followed a string 
of by-election losses. 

The party won a record 
four-fifths majority in the 
lower house, the Lok Sabha. in 
general elections in December 
1984, but opposition groups 


rule nine of the country’s 22 
states. 

• Punjab: Anger rose in 
Purtiab yesterday after securi- 
ty forces hunting extremists 
raided a Sikh shrine and 
.militant Hindus pressed 
ahead with a call for a protest 
strike. 

The moderate Sikh Temples 
Management ' Committee 
voiced a strong protest at the 
“manhandling” and detention 
of 17 Sikhs after police and 
paramilitary troops raided a 
prominent shrine in Tam 
Taran town. 15 miles from 
Amritsar. 


Dhaka tax protest on 
tough budget plan 


Dhaka — Thousands of 
people with black protest ban- 
ners streamed into the streets 
of Dhaka in monsoon rains at 
the weekend to demonstrate 
against new taxes and rising 
costs of living (Ahmed Fazl 
writes). 

The protest came as the 
Bangladesh military Govern- 
ment unveiled tough budget 
prosposals for fiscal year 
1986-37, asking people to 
prepare for austerity. 

Mr M. Syeduzzaman, chief 
of the Finance Ministry, said 


yesterday that the new budget 
should be seen as the begin- 
ning of a “phase of develop- 
ment social justice and self- 
reliance” during which the 
people already facing high; 
consumer prices should be- 
pre pared to make sacrifices. ; 

The budget which called for. 
spending of about 92.5 billion- 
taka (about £2 billion) came a? 
prices of consumer goods went 
up officially by 10 per cent in 
two months and exports con- 
tinued to decline.

A NEW FLAGSHIP. THE CITROEN BX GTi. 


. The new Citroen BX 19GTi is an exciting combination of 
panache, performance, luxury and equipment The Bosch fuel 
injected engine develops 125bhp giving a top speed of 123mph 
and- 0-60 in a staggering 8.8 seconds. 

With aerodynamic spoilers fore and aft, low profile tyres, 
power operated disc brakes all round, power-assisted steering 
and Citroen’s unique^ suspension system, the flagship offers 


beautifully balanced road holding. 

The interior has been carefully designed to blend sports 
car feel with executive car luxury. 

Sports seating, performance instrumentation, finger tip 
controls and a padded single spoke steering wheel combine to 
give true GTi driving pleasure. You’ll even find the price at 
£8849 plain sailing. 


A NEW CRUISER. THE CITROEN BX DIESEL 


wr- 


■ The !new Citroeb Estate, a car with truly individual flair 
and style in an increasingly conformist age. 

New, stylish facia and dashboard, Citroen’s legendary 
comfort, and high standards of equipment Electric windows are 
standard on all models, power steering on most But what 
probably makes the new Citroen BX Estates so completely 


different is the ride. The unique self-levelling suspension will 
smooth out any rough crossings and with variable height control 
ensures that it is unaffected by heavy loads. You can even adjust 
the height yourself for those bulkier items (it will carry over half 
a tonne). No matter what, it will always behave like a saloon. 
So it’s steady as she goes all the way from £7672. 


The smoothest diesel on the road has changed inside and 
out What hasn’t changed on the new diesel range is that incom- 
parable Citroen diesel ride -so quiet and vibration free you’d 
think it was a petrol saloon. 

' New levels of comfort, refinement and style complement 
advanced engineering. Citroen’s self-levelling suspension and 
specially designed hydraulic engine mounts provide ride comfort 
unsurpassed by any other diesel. 

The new Citroen’s BX l9DTR’s perky 65bhp engine 
provides sprightly, acceleration, remarkable economy (60.1mpg 


at 56mph) and relaxed cruising up to 98mph. Equally relaxing 
is the price, starting from just £6873. 

The impressive new model range, including 15 saloons, 
4 estates, a choice of petrol or diesel engines and 6 automatics, 
starts at only £5598 so you won’t have to push the boat out 

For more information, write to Citroen Freepost at thg

SPECTRUM 


Fourteen years and no passes 


It started in the 1 970s 


- and it hasn’t finished 


yet — but there is 


“ more to Mastermind 


than viewers saw in 


last night’s final. 


Bryan Appleyard 


peers behind that 


infamous spotlight 


Magnus Magnusson rises 10 his feet 
in an echoing McEwan Hall at the 
University of' Edinburgh- “And now 
the man who has done so much to 
ruin the BBC since he took over - 
Mr Michael Gradef* The five 
Mastermind contestants giggle and 
there are some sniggers from the 
technicians who lurk in the pools of 
darkness between the lighting 


gantries. 

The Mag — as he is universally 
known - is bearing aloft an empty 
earthenware pate dish which he 
pretends, for the moment, is made 
of Caithness glass. He presents it to 
John Gilpin, the stage manager. His 
job is to play the Controller of BBC 
I - the real Grade is later to present 
the real glass bowl to the real 
winner. Gilpin says: “Great plea- 
sure. blah, blah. blah. Caithness, 
blah, blah, blah." He then unloads 
the dish on a contestant who. in 
turn, sits in the famous chair, the 
dish perched on her lap. 

The rehearsal of the presentation 
is repeated five times over, once for 
each contestant. Only two rehears- 
als were actually required, but it was 
felt that everybody should practise 
winning unless failure to do so was 
later interpreted as some kind of 
omen. 

With that process completed all 
retire for sherry and sandwiches 
prior to the real* thing. Earlier they 
had rehearsed both rounds of the 
game using a stock of rehearsal 
questions which ne'er varies. The 
Mag dispenses with his austere on- 
air tones and reveals his true colours 
during this process. 

“You passed cravenly on two," he 
says, or “Mr Formby. return to your 
seal in disgrace." For. shocking as it 
may seem, the magisterial, erudite 
Magnu&son who runs Mastermind 
is a phoney — his real self is 
mischievous. laid-back: he is most 
definitely one of the lads. 

The final was actually recorded 
on May 21. In previous years it has 
been recorded in the same week as 
transmission. But organization this 
year, with five finalists instead of 
the usual four, proved more diffi- 
cult, so the final had to be staged 
before the semi-finals had even 
been broadcast 

As a result the entire production 
team was twitchy about the problem 
of secrecy, imploring both audience 
and guests to keep the result to 
themselves. Meanwhile a few as- 
sorted hacks were wondering if they 
could relieve Messrs Ladbroke of 



The Answering Machine faces The Mag: Je nnif er Keaveney on her winning way to the theoretical maximum of 40 points during last night’s final 


a game. This seems to produce the 
opposite of the desired effect 

Meanwhile The Mag and the 
producer. Peter Massey, retell the 
history of the quiz. 

It was born in the 1970s when the 
BBC was on the look-out for a new 
quiz format One producer. Bill 
Wright had suffered interrogation 
by the Gestapo after being shot 
down over Holland. One night he 
relived the experience in a dream, 
with his interrogators having been 
turned into the Spanish Inquisition. 
Again he wearily repeated his name, 
rank and serial number while sitting 
in a chair, dazzled by bright lights. 
On waking he instantly worked out 
the format for the show. To this dav- 
it has changed only in detail. 


‘Magnus is quite 
definitely one 
of the lads’ 


any spare change with the help of 
t of in 


this fragment of inside knowledge. 

Over sherry’, Mary Craig, the 
scorer, is playing a mother-hen role 
for the contestants. She discusses 
clothes with the women — “It's 
pink. Oh it must be very pale pink" 
— and assures the man looking most 
tense. Owen Gunnell, that it is only 


Its success has been immense. It 
has now run for 14 years and 
attracts audiences of up to 15 
million. This year a record number 
of 8.000 people have applied to take 
pan in the 1 987 series. There is even 
a Mastermind club for former 
contestants. The Mag attends their 
meetings and provides expert criti- 
cism of the quality of their question- 
setting during after-dinner sessions. 

Time is passing and the challeng- 
ers are visibly freezing up. Making 
conversaiion is evidently becoming 
an irritant as the final approaches. 


Two of them — Philip McDonald 
and Michael Formby — are from 
Liverpool and are seasoned practi- 
tioners from the pub-based 
Merseyside Quiz League. Both have 
been swotting. Owen says he has no 
lime for such preparation and keeps 
saying: “1 didn't expect to get this 
far and I don't expect to win 
tonight 

The two women are spectacularly 
different. Hendy Farquhar-Smith is 
the garrulous life-and-soul-of-the- 
partv. She has been on Winner 
Takes All and Ask the Family, so she 
is something of a TV pro. She calls 
Jennifer Keaveney “the answering 
machine" after her performance in 
the semi-final. She scored 20 in each 
round, making a record total of 40. 
This is a theoretical maximum as 
The Mag limes the questions and 
answers to give an optimum 20 
questions per two minute period 
Very rapid answering can of course 
produce more. 

Jennifer is quiet and shy and has 
been re-reading the novels of Eliza- 
beth Gaskell. Her dress is the same 
as she wore in the heat and the semi- 
final — not that she is superstitious, 
she just couldn't find anything else. 
She is the runaway favourite. 

Families are there, but only 
Owen’s wife is actually at the sherry 
session. Contestants are allowed 
three guests, who must sit behind 
them as they wait to sit in The 
Chair. This is meant to discourage 
any suggestion of cheating, though 
in reality they all say that once they 
are out in the glare of the lights they 
are aware of nothing but The Mag's 
pale stare and the soft dicks of his- 
question cards. 


We leave for the halL now filled 
by the audience. Around its renais- 
sance dome is inscribed the motto: 
“Wisdom is the prindpal thing 
therefore get wisdom and with all 
thy getting get understanding; exalt 
her and she shall bring thee 
honour." Tonight the understand- 
ing is optional. 


‘Aware of nothing 
but the click 
of question cards’ 


optical apparatus thrust dangerous- 
ly close to mine. "I once showed it 
to some television people in Ameri- 
ca and they couldn't understand it. 
They said it was so slow " 

The mild-mannered Jennifer 
turns out to be married to Arthur, a 
large, bewhiskered university lec- 
turer from the west coast of Ireland. 
No, Arthur had no idea she had it in 
her. Yes, Arthur had helped her by 
reading Elizabeth Gaskell and try- 
ing to spot likely questions. 


All this niceness is beginning to 
the Daily Mail, 


During the contest half the audi- 
ence cannot hear a thing as ques- 
tions and answers acoustically 
evaporate in the vast dome. But the 
tension is real enough as Hendy 
takes a one-point lead after the 
specialist round. In the general 
knowledge round, however, Jenni- 
fer finds her range. Her head tilts 
slightly, all life seems to vanish 
from "her face and the answers 
emerge as if she were merely the 
mouthpiece of some infinitely 
quick, infinitely informed comput- 
er. She scores a near-impossible 22 
to give her another 40 and a 
runaway victory. 

Grade does his prize-giving bit, 
making convivial jokes about his 
own inability to answer the ques- 
tions. Back to the food and drink 
and the contestants are almost 
invisible as Grade takes centre- 
stage. 

“It's all about cruelty.- and the 
eves”, he says, his own beady 


get to the man from 
who is growing increasingly con- 
vinced there is no story. He seizes 
gratefully on the snippet that Jenni- 
fer appeared on University Chal- 
lenge in 1978, but Jennifer isn’t a 
story. She just happened to win, 
having been hooked by the number 
of questions sbe could answer while 
idly watching the show. For a 
moment that meant she- found 
herself among the hacks and the 
showmen, bemused but self-con- 
tained. This is not a Fred House©) 
situation; it is a drift-poiitefy-away 
scenario. 

Grade, by this time, is in top gear. 
“You know, I would have put 
money on her not winning. She 
looked so nervous at the beginning. 
And when I shook her hand— it was 
so cold.” He is also having fun 
apparently tearing a strip off a press 
officer and organizing a press 
conference about yet another televi- 
sion row for the next day. Master-

the schedules and Jennifer Just

Dolls from the deep 


Legoland, the 25-acre child- 
ren’s amusement park in 
Billund. on Denmark's Jut- 
land peninsula, will soon be' 
providing a home for some 
elderly — and enchanting — 
guests. They are doils, part of 
the cargo of a German ship, 
the Louisiana, which sank in 
25 feet of water off Jutland’s 
North Sea coast in 1868. 

So far, Danish divers have 
brought hundreds of china 
and porcelain dolls to the 
surface, as well as spare parts 
such as arms and legs, and the 
moulds and lead for the 
manufacture of toys. 

The Lego concern, which 
makes the brightly coloured 
interlocking building blocks 
used by an estimated 50 
million children worldwide, 
paid an undisclosed - but 
undoubtedly considerable — 
sum for the rights to the 
treasure trove. 

The wreck of the 1300 ton 
Louisiana was discovered in 
1 983 by Danish divers a third 
of a mile off the North Sea 
hamlet of Fjaltring, halfway 
up the peninsula. 



Channel by fierce storms* the 
Louisiana returned to the 
North Sea where she lost her 
masts and rigging off England 
and drifted out of control 
towards Denmark. On Febru- 
ary 6, 15 days after setting out 
on her ill-fated journey to 
America, die was swept on to 
a sandbar off the Jutland 
coast. Only one member of the 
crew lost his life. 


Enough goods were sal-

Sunken treasure: all dolled-op

The ship left her. home port 
of Breraerhaven on January 
23, 1868, on her maiden 
voyage to New York. She had 
a crew of 23 and a mixed cargo 
of iron and lead bars, manu- 
factured goods, wine, rice and 
coffee - and the toys.

vaged from the wreck of the 
Louisiana for two local auc- 
tions to be held in Jutland that 
spring. But before the entire 
cargo could be brought ashore, 
the huff of the 146ft vessel 
finally snapped and sank into 
the sands of Fjaltring, near 
Holstebro. 

Three years ago divers re- 
covered large quantities of, 
artefacts from die hulk, and 
since then annual summer 
dives have harvested crates 
full of well-preserved dolls, 
and large amounts of lead bars 
and other items. This sum- 
mer. the project will be 
completed. 

“The dolls, which are of| 
German manufacture, were 
brand new when they were 
shipped to New York”. Kir- 
sten Stadelhofer, the Lego 
executive supervising Opera- 
tion Louisiana, says. “Many 
of ibe items are dolls' arms, 
legs and heads, without bodies 
and clothing, indicating that 
they were destined to be 
assembled prior to being sold 
in shops in the New World.” 

The fascinating mid- 19th 
century dolls will be cleaned 
and repaired before becoming 
part of Legoland's own doU 
collection. Located in a muse- 
um in the amusement park, 
the collection is one of the 
most impressive in Europe, 
consisting of some 450 Euro-

Waiting for the 



T his is the day on "bn* 
we all run our greatest 

*ni»wl risk of meeting 
yrwtwT*! disaster face Co face. 
As you read this, the earth k 
ploughing through a ctoua of 
rater-planetary boulders, we 

-taftto’s rubWe^of tfco «rfar 
system. It poses very rad 
threats — a chunk just 20 
yards across sweeping in® 
the earth’s atmosphere would 
explode a few miles above 
sound and devastate a hun- 
dred square miles. A 100- 

yarf boulder could reach the 
ground intact and explode to 
form a one mile- wide crater. 
The dust raised by the impact 
would form a mushroom cloud 
that could affect the worms 
weather for many m onths. 

Such are the vivid counn- 
sioas reached by normally 
down-to-earth geologists at 
the spring meeting of the 
American Geophysical 
Union in Baltimore, Mary- 
land. They met in special 
session to assess the major 

natur al ha yar ds facing the 

world: • meteorites, earth- 
quakes and volcanic 
eruptions. 

“Space boulders are partic- 
ularly hazardous", says Eu- 
gene Shoemaker of the US 
Geological Survey. “Al- 
though we know of the many 
mile-sized bodies that pass by 
earth, even modern astronom- 
ical cameras and radar can 
■not find and track the mil- 
lions of yard-sized bonMers." 

Shoemaker befieves these 
rocks even pose a political 
ride. Any atmospheric deto- 
nation on this scale mimics a 
nuclear explosion. The space- 
monitoring systems of the 
superpowers would pick up u 
incoming fireball and identify 
the explosion as non-midear. 
But less sophisticated mem- 
bers of the nuclear dnb might 
use unclear weapons in re- 
sponse to a meteorite blast. 
Even the reply of Star Wars 


In 1908. a meteorite 
exploded over 
Siberia, levelling 
LOCO square miles 
of forest. Today" it 
could be our turn 



Space bomb: Phobos, one of Man* moens, Ei 18 nfles wide; 
but that is only half the size of some cosmic debris 


equipment now being buOt to 
respond automatically to a 
nodear attack could never be 
predicted. Missiles might be 
launched before the scientists 
sorted out the confusion. 

Socta natural disasters may 
seem unreal, but 78 years ago 
today a nuUkm-ton boulder 
tumbled down Into the atmo- 
sphere at 72,000 mph over 
the Tangoska . region of 
Siberia. 


I ts entry fireball, caused by 
friction, was brighter foan 
the Sira and the boulder 
disintegrated in a 12-megaton 
flash four miles up. The 
blinding light singed the 
shirts of witnesses 10. miles 
away and the blast flattened 
nearly 1,000 square miles of 
pine forest The local soft is 
still thickwith tiny glass and 
iron beads, the condensed 
remains of the melted and 
vaporized boulder. 

There is ample evidence 
that space is not empty, bat 
teems with debris of ail kinds. 
Hundreds of mile-sired mini 
planets rub shoulders with 
millioiis of yard-sized rocks 
and bOtions of dost frag- 
ments. Collimons happen all 
foe time. We’ve all seen the 
small stuff the shooting star 
of a meteor being destroyed. 
The earth attracts more tfam 
10,000 tons of debris a year. 


day, a 1,000 ton body once a 
month, a IS, 000 ton boulder 
once a year and a 100,000 ton 
behemoth every 20 years. A 
million tun Tunguska giant 
arrives once a century. 

Our greatest risk comes 
from fragments of comet 
Encke. This icy body has 
scattered more dost and boul- 
ders dose to the earth's orbit 
in tiie last few thousand years 
than all other sources com- 
bined. Each June 30 foe earth 
passes right through this 
debris. 

The Tunguska boulder was 
part of this cloud and the 
impact of other bits of it on 
the moon have been recorded 
by the seismic stations left 
behind by the Apollo astro- 
nauts- There, meteorites are 
not slowed by an atmosphere 
and impact on the surface 
with full force. A high propor- 
tion of the largest impacts 
Occur around the end of June. 

When foe next Tongus ta- 
sty le boulder arrives, as it 
surely will in our children’s 
lifetimes, it is unlikely to be 
spotted beforehand. The sud- 
den appearance of tbe bril- 
liant entry fireball will give 
jnst a few seconds* warning of 
detonation.

V anessa Owens took her 
life the day before her 
second baby was due. It 
was the unhappy sequel 
to the tragedy of a still- 
birth after which she was allowed to 
cradle the dead infant. Vanessa's 
father, Anthony Owens, said at the 
inquest last month that no mother 
should be given a corpse because 
'“there is an immediate bond” once 
a baby is handed to her. 

in recent years there has been a 
determined movement for belter 
handling of stillbirths. Giving the 
dead child to the mother, called 
bonding, is now seen as an aid to a 
healthy expression of grief. 

For 24-year-old Vanessa Owens, 
it proved too much. She spent time 
in a psychiatric unit after the loss of 
the baby and tried to take an 
overdose when she became preg- 
nant again. Her desperation about 
the possibility of a second tragedy 
underlay her suicide. It is a fear 
familiar to all women who have had 
a stillbirth. But these days, says Sue 
Burgess, chairman of the Stillbirth 
and Neonatal Death Society 
(Sands), women whose babies are 
bore dead feel angry. 

-“Often it’s easier for parents to 
. accept a neonatal death (in the first 
weeks of life) when they can see 
: defocmily or how little chance the 
’ baby has. and they can also see how 
'-hard doctors and nurses work to 
/save ft.” she says. “In a stillbirth 
there is a lot of blame and anger 
around. There will always be birth 
' tragedies, but of course there are ■ 
some that shouldn't occur. Parental 
■ observations can give a good guide 
to what's happening.” 

Bdinda and Tony Turner lost 
their first baby in a stillbirth 18 
months ago. They now have an 
eight-week-old daughter. Angela. 
“The undertakers took that dreadful 
white, minute casket from the 
limousine, where it had sat so 
incongruously on the back seat, and 
I heard our Roman Catholic priest 
whisper to them that there wouldn't 
be a service but we would say a few 
prayers, and that was that”, says 
Bdinda. now aged 30. a former 
fashion buyer. 

She and her husband, a carpenter, 
were the only mourners at the burial 
. of their first babv. “At first I used to

Should mothers be encouraged to see, hold 
and even photograph their stillborn babies? 
Bonding is widely regarded as a good thing 
but there can be grave risks to set against 


visit her grave every week. Now I go 
once in three weeks, but the real 
pilgrimage was going to the grave 
with my new baby. I can honestly 
say there was never a moment when 
1 thought the second baby would be 
born and survive. What shocked me 
as I held her was her warmth. You 
don’t let yourself imagine warm 
flesh, a warm human being, after a 
stillbirth. I had such a feeling of 
emptiness inside, like a complete 
void. Subsequent pregnancy was 
terrifying.” 

There are no set rules about 
stillbirth except that the baby is lost- 
some have been dead in the womb 
for some lime, others are lost while 
the mother is in hospital. Some 
parents see the dead infant, others 
prefer not to. Some cuddle the baby, 
others keep photographs. 

It was Belinda's first pregnancy 
and it never crossed her mind that 
anything was wrong until midwives 
had trouble finding a heartbeat on 
her admission to hospital. 

“I knew then that uial was »L My 
husband was still at work, my 
mother was with me. The hospital 
never told me the baby was dead 
during labour, and when my hus- 
band walked into the room I looked 
at his face and knew that he didn't 
know. When he asked what was 
wrong, no one would tell him.” 

B elinda says she was given 
“quite a lot of Pelhedin 
and 1 remember through 
the haze the midwife ask- 
ing me: ‘Have you thought 
whether you would like to see and 
hold your baby when it’s bom?’ I 
said: ‘No. no. no, 1 don't want to.' I. 
was horrified by the idea of the baby 
being dead. It was my first pregnan- 
cy and you don't know what your 
baby's going to be hke.anyway. I felt 
so dreadful. I didn't want anyone 
with me when it was bom. I thought 
I had let everybody down. 

“Later the consultant asked me 
whether I was sure I didn't want to 
see the baby and I said yes. I’ve 
never regretted it Yet we have a 
photograph of the baby and I look at 
it a lot.” 

Colin and Rebecca Andrews lost 
their first child 10 years ago. 
Rebecca. 20 at the time, was told the 
baby had died in an abrupt manner

stood that l would be depressed for 
a long time. Three months later I 
became pregnant with my next 
child, but for years afterwards I 
would find myself feeling really low 
for no accountable reason. It was 
that unresolved grief. 

“‘We had three children after that 
and the third one died when she was 
three months old. It was at her 
funeral that the impact of the 
stillborn baby. Luke, really hit me. 
We’ve since had two more children, 
and I've found each time that it has 
been very difficult coping with w hat 
could go wrong. You feel a tremen- 
dous sense of guilt because your 
body was responsible for protecting 
the child and somewhere along the 
line it failed. The experience takes 
away all your confidence.” 

Five years ago, John and Jenny 
Harrison, then 29, lost their second 
child. “1 knew the baby was dead as 
i pushed him out. It was just a 
totally different feeling from how it 
had been with my live child. I was 
there with the dead baby still 
attached to me: I hadn’t been 
drugged or anything. The hospital 
staff were very open towards letting 


and that its birth would be induced 
four days later, a fact which 
horrified Colin, not just because she 
would have to carry the dead baby 
for four more days, but because she 
would have to go through a normal 
labour. 

“1 waited a week before I went 
back into hospital because l was so 
frightened”, Rebecca says, “i 
couldn't face the reality. They 
prescribed Valium and 1 can re- 
member saying to the consultant: 
•Your Valium will not take away my 
pain'. 

“It didn't help me at all that 
people thought ft best for me to get 
on and have another child and 
forget about the dead baby. He was 
my son and 1 needed time to grieve 
for him. 1 had wanted to see the 
baby when he was born, but 1 can re- 
member the sister saying to me: ‘1 
think you should know that it won't 
look very nice because it has been 
dead for a week, and I advise you 
not to see it’. 

“I was very heavily drugged in 
labour. When he was Bom I did ask 
to sec him. but no one answered me. 
After I went home nobody under- 


us do what we wanted. The baby 
was taken away, cleaned and nicely 
wrapped up and they said: ‘You 
hold him as long as you like because 
you obviously want to'. 

“The baby arrived in the middle 
of the night - just like a bad dream, 
really, We just accepted in there 
were no tears. But the terrible thing 
is that your body is geared up for a 
live baby and by the third day. when 
your milk comes in. it's just 
screaming out for a baby. It's a very 
physical thing and at the time I 
wouldn't have cared what was 
wrong with the baby, and ours had 
quite a lot wrong with him. 

“There was nothing horrible 
about holding him and. as the years 
have gone by. it has been a great 
comfort for me because, in holding 
him. 1 somehow acknowledged that 
he was mine. The only thing I regret 
is not having a picture of him.”

Visit Earl’s Court, 
bring a duster 


I think I may have to give up 
■ holidays the way other people 
give up alcohol and red meat. 
“No, thank you", I shall say, 
the next lime I am offered a 
month in the Bahamas. “I’m 
sorry, but I don’t travel well.” 

It isn't the travelling that I 
mind, or the getting away 
from it all: it is the getting back 
to it that I find so unsettling. I 
love my job. but it compares 
badly with leaning over the 
harbour wall in the west of 
Ireland. On my first day back 
at work my nerves stretch as 
tauily as harp strings and 10 
days of R and R are wiped out 
in a single morning. 

Then there’s the post-vaca- 
tion washing. 1 know that 
some wonderfully organized 
travellers wouldn't dream of 
going as far as Margate with- 
out their portable plastic 
clothesline with its own mini- 
pegs. a sachet of Travelwash 
and a suitcase hardly weighted 
down at all with driprdry 
clothing. 

But this is not a feasible 
proposition in Connemara, 
where the ideal holiday ward- 
robe is thick sweaters that take 
three days to dry 1 , even if you 
remember to bring them in 
out of the rain and drape them 
over the immersion beater. So 
I tend to let the Guinness 
stains rest in peace while I'm 
there and drag back a easeful 
of soiled outerwear which 
smells like a pub serving 
engine-oil on draughL 

I fling the lot into the 
washing machine in my Lon- 
don flat, unfortunately with 
one grubby tissue still tucked 
inside, a sleeve. How peculiar 
it is that one small square of 
paper, hardly big enough to 
sneeze into, can disintegrate 
into 10 million damp flakes 
that slick fast to an entire 
machine-load, most especially 
to the black ribbed cotton skirt 
that you should have washed 
bv hand any wav. 

It is also a well known fact 
that, whenever you go away, 
everyone to whom you owe 
money sends in their bills so 
as to form a high stack of 
brown envelopes on the door- 
mat to trip you up on your 
return. Nothing brings on the 
homecoming blues more than 
having to pay the electricity 
bill, when the money ear- 
marked for it has already been 
recklessly spent on a lobster 
supper by a sunlit quayside. 

A creature of habit. I always 
spend my holidays in Ireland 
and always spend my lime 
there doing the housework. 
This is on the basis of a change 
being as good as a rest. In 
London I have to ignore the 
state of the lace curtains while 
1 try 10 cat my breakfast 
yoghurt while putting on my 
lipstick. So. when I’m off duty, 

I have a perfectly lovely time 
swilling spiders down the 
plughole and burnishing the 
brass claw legs of the standard 
lamp.

my Irish cottage, I travel 
hundreds of miles on trains 
and boats and planes. It seems 
a lot of money to spend just to 
feel the glow of domesticity, 
especially when I then have to 
return to the grimy hovel that 
is home for most of the year. 

It would be cheaper and 
probably just as relaxing to 
stay put in Earl's Court One 
could always say: “I have 
decided not to go away this 
year”, in a voice that suggests 
that a holiday at home in- 
volves strolling through the 
paddock of an evening, sip- 
ping Pimms and inviting 
Jeremy Irons over for tennis. 
Some people have so many 
accoutrements in their homes 
— Jacuzzis, floodlit birdbaths, 
climbing frames - that they 
must feel that they are visiting 
a rather high-class Butlins 
without stepping outside. 

There is nothing like that 
where l live but holidays in 
Earl’s Court must have some- 
thing. judging by the number 
of Australians who flock here 
as well as several Arab ladies 
in jewelled masks who jet over 
to spend the summer in the 
local Underwoods. I could 
make it sound quite exotic as 
long as I don't let on that the 
height of ecstasy as far as I'm 
concerned is removing the 
inch-thick layer of velvety 
grey dust from the bathroom 
shelves. 

Fantasies aren't what they 
used to be. Cosmopolitan 
magazine is offering as a 
competition prize a night out 
with Ken Livingstone. 

Ken Livingstone ? Come on 
now. Cosmopolitan. / expect 
more glamorous suggestions 
from you than that. What's 
wrong with Richard Gere. Bob 
Gddof. Anthony Andrews? I 
am sure that Ken Livingstone 
is a perfectly nice chap hut he 
has a bald spot, suits that look 
as if he got them via a mail-or- 
der catalogue, and he goes on 
about his pel newts. 

In fact, he's just the son of 
man that most women are 
capable of finding all by 
themselves without the bother 
of entering a competition to 
win him.

The Government's “meat 
products” regulations come 
into force tomorrow. They 
will ensure that no more than 
7.4 percent of water is added 
to a frozen chicken without it 
being labelled as containing 
the enabling additive 
polyphosphate. They will 
make certain that no piece of 
ham or bacon with more than 
about 10 per cent added 
water goes to the supermarket 
shelf without explaining its 
extra weight. 

Trading standards officers 
expect the result to be that 
supermarkets will not sell 
watered chickens or hams. As 
David Roberts, chief trading 
standards officer for Shrop- 
shire. says: “Nobody will 
want to see polyphosphate on 
a label". 

Yet there are limes when 
automatically believing that 
the food industry is a conspir- 
acy can be bad for you. Last 
month one of our local 
butchers halved his meat 
space and even opened up a 
fresh fish counter. 

In another butcher's win- 
dow. however, the sight of 
huge lamb leg steaks was too 
much to resist. They were 
slapped into an old cast-iron

frying pan. One tea spoonful 
of vegetable oil bad gone in 
ahead of the sleaks and they 
were turned over quickly on 
either side then covered with 
an enamel plate so they 
wouldn’t dry out. The gas was 
turned down to simmer. ‘ 

The steaks were practically 
awash with water 20 minutes 
later. Salt had not been added 
so the reason for such a 
massive leak was a puzzle. 
The steaks were much small- 
er but tasted delicious. Next 
day the story was tok) to the 
butcher who doled, out four 
more sleaks and filled out an 
official complaint form. 

The new steaks were treat- 



ed to the same cooking 
method and this lime slightly 
over one pound in weight 
yielded three fluid ounces of 
liquid. The steaks were still 
delicious. Yet the thought 
niggled that somehow water 
had been added. 

The explanation proved a 
bit embarrassing Dr Brian 
Bointon. lecturer in food 
technology at North London 
Polytechnic, put it as suc- 


cinctly as he could, after 
reporting back from further 
inquiries with meat experts. 

Water, he reminded me. 
makes up a huge percentage 
of our — and animals* — 
bodies. “You could expea to 
lose between 8 and 10 per 
cent of your lamb's weight in 
water. But there are many 
other factors which could 
influence even more being 
lost. 

• “Your three fluid ounce 
water loss is certainly at the 
top end of expected loss but 
from what you tell me it is not 
unreasonable”. There was. he 
added, no known technology 
in practice at present for 
adding water to fresh meat. 

What he didn't say was 
maybe what the butcher fell 
like telling me the day I 
complained: 1 couldn't cook. 
Because among the “other 
factors” which encourage wa-; 
ter Joss are cooking very 
slowly and cooking with a lid 
— or an upturned plate — over 
the meat. Forgetting how to 
cook meat seems easier than 
becoming a vegetarian.

Every Dad should have his day 


From Mrs Vanessa Gcbbic, 
Dyke Road, Hove 

I would like to take issue with 
Joseph Kelly (Why fathers 
can do without a day. First 
Person, June !3) on two 
counts. He implies that board 
games such as Trivial Pursuit 
are a waste of time and money, 
as is Fathers' Day. _ 

What, exactly, constitutes a 
“waste of time” in bis eyes? 
An enjoyable hour spent with 
family or friends testing gener- 
al knowledge? Kids saving 
hard-earned pocket money to 
bay Dad a gift? 

Does Mr Kelly ban games of 
chess, backgammon. Monopo- 
ly, draughts and snakes and 
ladders on the spurious 
grounds that some commer- 
cially-minded whizz-kid is 
making a profit out of them? 
Does he also ban Christinas 
and birthday cards and 
presents. Easter eggs, and 
Mothers’ Day gifts? 

It seems to me as though Mr 
Kelly is rather envious that he 
did not espy the relevant gaps 
in the market himself. Sour

As a man I should tike 
wholeheartedly to endorse 
Libby Purves’s article (Kilting 
off pride and perfection. First 
person, June 18) which re- 
vealed the plight of the Phyllis 
Memorial Maternity Home. 

In 1980 my former wife gave 
birth to our son at the excel- 
lent Heath Road Maternity 
Unit in Ipswich, and the next 
day I collected both mother 
and son and drove them to the 
Phyllis. The sister in charge. 
Sister Thick, bad delivered my 
wife some 21 years earlier and 
had certainly taken a ride in 
the first days of most of our 
son’s 15 cousins at that time. 

Even in those days there 
was talk of closure, and now It 


seems inevitable. Although I 
no longer live in the direct 
vicinity of the Phyllis, I can 

well remember the friendly 
atmosphere and first class 
attention to both mothers and 
offspring. L for one, shall 
mourn its passing. 

From Mrs Elizabeth 
H inkier. The National 
Childbirth Trust, Fromc. 
Somerset 

Closure of rural maternity 
homes is not only a tragic loss 
to the community, as Libby 
Porves’s excellent article 
showed, but also, if a similar 
policy in the Bath health 
district is anything to go by, 
eventually unworkable. 

Due to closures of rural 
maternity units and a policy of 
centralization in the Bath 
area, the post-natal wards id 
the Princess Anne Maternity 
Wing at the Royal United 
Hospital in Bath are notori- 
ously short-staffed and 
overcrowded. 

We now hear that the health 
district is reversing its policy 


and encouraging the rural GP

Penny Penick’s brilliant for- 
mula (Polygamy paradise, 
Jane 16) for marital bliss with 
equal opportunities would, it 
seems, find much favour, to 
judge from my inquiries. 

The worrying thought is, 
would we run out of women in a 
polygamous society? To over- 
come this, divorce and remar- 
riage rates now being what 
they are. It seems only logical 
to allow a series of monoga- 
mous marriages by tbe same 
partner to take place concur- 
rently, instead of consecutively 
as at present Long-term com- 
mitments to marriage, which 
are currently hit-and-miss af- 
fairs, could thus conveniently 
continue as such, the sheer 
volume of joint partners mak- 
ing for greater stability and 
equality of opportunity.

Burning 

issues 

Labour MP Tam Dal yell’s latest 
sortie into the politics of 
embarrassment is to make an issue 
of the Prime Minister's deter- 
mination to keep her Cabinet 
Secretary'. Sir Robert Armstrong, 
beyond "his retirement date. He 
has tabled a parliamentary ques- 
tion for Tuesday asking Mrs 
Thatcher to state her reasons. 
Tonight I expect Daly ell to elabo- 
rate on his theory that an outgoing 
Tory administration would de- 
pend on Armstrong to determine 
which sensitive Downing Street 
documents should be saved, and 
which could be dispatched to the 
Number 10 shredder. Dalyell ar- 
gues that the two other men who 
could have filled this function. 
Robin Butler and Sir Clive 
. Whitmore, the former principal 
private secretaries to the Prime 
Minister, have both moved on to 
other senior posts. Armstrong is 
thus the only man with the 
detailed knowledge of the highly 
sensitive documentation about 
the Falklands war and the West- 
land crisis. Dalyell will make his 
claims to the West Lancashire 
Labour Party in Ormskirk — the 
consrituency’of Conservative MP 
Kenneth Hind who supported the 
recent filibuster which prevented 
Daylcll from attacking the Prime 
Minister in the Commons.

Downing Street would have us 
believe that the Belgians and the 
Dutch pulled out of the mooted 
tripartite delegation with Britain 
10 South Africa of their own 
volition, but 1 suggest this is not 
the case. It was Mrs Thatcher who. 
at the Hague summit, marched up 
to the foreign ministers of the 
other two nations 3 nd told them, 
as inimitably as ever, that their 
presence would not be required. 
The PM's chill touch dearly has 
the same effect on ministers 
abroad as on those at home.

While Richard Branson was 
preparing for his speedboat at- 
tempt on the Atlantic I was dining 
in London with Jamaica's tourism 
minister. Hugh Hart. He told me 
that Branson is considering yet 
another project, a twice-weekly 
Virgin Atlantic jumbo service to 
Jamaica. The two men met re- 
cently and, according to HarL 
Branson was eager for details of 
fuel costs. landing fees and other 
relevant data. No denial is forth- 
coming from Virgin, and I predict 
an autumn date for take-off!

If Branson’s airline secures an- 
other MoD contract for Falklands

we could witness the spectacle of 
an Argentine aircraft returning to

of the genre the other night while 
watching West Germany v France 
on the giant screen in my locaL

At last you are beginning to trump 
my stories about the highest score 
ever recorded in a single over of 
cricket. My last bid, you remem- 
ber, was an apocryphal 161 in a 
village match, when the ball get 
stuck in the spout of a pump deep 
in the outfield and was not 
officially “lost” by virtue of its 
continuing visibility. Well, in 
January 1894 . during a fixture in 
Western Australia, a similar thing 
happened, only this time the 
catcher was a three-pronged fork 
in a tree near the boundary. The 
home side sent for an axe; this 
failed to materialize, so they got 
hold of a rifle and. after several 
shots, the team’s top marksman 
dislodged the ball - but not be- 
fore the visiting batsmen had run 
286 and the captain had declared. 
Terrible reproaches followed be- 
tween the fielders, for they had 
aUowed the ball to drop, like Isaac 
Newton’s apple, without bother- 
ing to catch it 

PHS 


At one stage during our visits to 
South Africa the Commonwealth 
croup believed there was a good 
chance of bringing about negotia- 
tions between the government and 
genuine black leaders. The pros- 
pect was destroyed when the 
government turned its back and 
launched a new series of repres- 
sive actions. 

1 believe there are two reasons 
for iis reaction. In the gov- 
ernment’s view, future political 
rights were to be exercised through 
separate racial groups. This could 
not be accepted by a united black 
leadership — and from our dis- 
cussions with Nelson Mandela 
and other black leaders the 
possibility of such a leadership 
began to emerge. Secondly, 
hardliners in the government be- 
lieved that tough measures would 
restore their kind of normalcy. 
Plainly they won. 

Commonwealth leaders will 
meet in the autumn to consider 
the actions they now consider 
necessary. The EEC has taken 
some steps — totally inadequate — 
and will discuss the matter further 
in three months. Sir Geoffrey 
Howe is going to South Africa as 
an EEC envoy — but what can he 
learn in a day or two that is not 
covered in our report? In six 
months we had more than 20 
meetings with government min- 
isters and met black leaders from 
all groups, including Mandela 
three times. Black leaders are 
unlikely to meet Sir Geoffrey 
because they regard the Common- 
wealth report - demonstrating as 
it does that Pretoria is not 
prepared to negotiate and is not 
dismantling the fundamentals of 
apartheid — as the definitive 
document. They warn sanctions or 
other substantive measures. Sir 
Geoffrey's visit will be seen as one 
more effort to delay and to find an 
excuse to avoid effective action. . 



Because the government's ac- 
tions have so fouled the at- 
mosphere, it would have to do 
much more than we suggested 
some months ago before black 
leaders went into the same room 
with it to negotiate. Abolition of 
the Population Registration Act 
and the Group Areas Act, two 
fundamental pillars of apartheid, 
would almost certainly have to be 
repealed to re-establish a climate 
for negotiation. 

Quite apart from the moral 
arguments in favour of effective 
action against Pretoria. Bririain 
should act out of its own self- 
interest. If Britain, the US and 
West Germany — South Africa's 
biggest trading partners - continue 
their present policies, the black 
leaders will conclude that they 
have no effective support from the 
West and are on their own. They 
will have only one option left: a 
frill-scale guerrilla war. In such a 
conflict, moderation would be 
swept aside. Women and children 
would become prime targets for 
attack. Terror would be answered 
by terror. Every community, every 
form, would demand constant 


Malcolm Fraser, former 
Australian prime 
minister and a member 
of the Commonwealth 
Eminent Persons Group 
on South Africa, 
argues that Pretoria’s 
intransigence leaves 
concerted outside 
pressure as the 
only course now open 
to avoid a black-white 
bloodbath which would 
seriously harm Britain 

protection. As in similar wars in 
South-east Asia, military strength 
■would be disisi pated. Numbers 
would win in the end. but only 
after great loss of life and destruc- 
tion. W© were not using hyper- 
boles in our report when we said 
that millions would be killed. 

The government that emerged 
from all this would be extremely 
radical, probably Marxist, and 
would nationalize all western 
business interests. For Britain 
there would be an additional loss: 
the destruction of the Common- 
wealth, or the Commonwealth 
continuing without it, and the 
likely loss of uade with the rest of 
Africa. The British economy 
would suffer its most damaging 
blow since the Second World War. 
The legacy would haunt the 
Conservative Party for years to 
come. 

What other course is there? 
Quiet diplomacy, constructive 
engagement and gentle reason 
have failed. Blacks in South Africa 
are now in a worse condition than 
five or six years ago. The view that 
the South African government 


does not respond to pressure is 
incorrect. The Afrikaner has , 
shifted, course only as a result of 
pressure, often severe pressure. 
Britain, above all, must know that 
as a result of its long relationship 
with South Africa. 

The only type of pressure 
suggested so far ts sanctions. They 
need lb be severe to stir foe white 
business community to action. 
The bigness community has gen- 
erally left politics to the Afrikaner, 
and that is a large part of the 
problem. Businessmen must be- 
come more involved if they are to 
preserve anything of the highest 
white', standards of living in the 
world. 

As a minimum, air links and 
consular facilities should be ter- 
minated, financial restrictions 
made more severe and an import 
ban imposed on South African 
coal, iron and steel products, 
uranium and agricultural prod- 
ucts. This could be more easily 
policed than a ban on the export of 
general merchanise to South Af- 
rica. 

There can be no' guarantee that 
such measures will work, but they 
have a reasonable dance of 
success and they represent the 
only remaining opportunity for 
the West to avert disaster. Some 
still argue that sanctions would 
hurt blacks and therefore should 
not be used. Overwhelmingly 
black leaders we met wanted die 
West to impose sanctions if the 
government was not prepared to 
negotiate. In any event, the harm 
to blacks would be very much less 
than that to all people in South 
Africa inflicted by a long guerrilla 
conflict. 

The EEC decision to consider 
the matter again in three months 
could be too late. The time for 
action is now.

Roger Boyes on Jaruzelski’s failure to discern the need for change 

Poland’s great paralysis 


Warsaw 

"Comrades,” said the communist 
from Cracow, “how many of you 
sent your children to first 
communion?” The response was 
sheepish. Many of the local party 
leadership had indeed confirmed 
their sons and daughters in the 
Roman Catholic Church but only, 
as some hasten to add. because of 
pressure from their wives. 

To hardline Marxists this recent 
incident is a fresh sign that the 
Polish Communist Party is under- 
going a crisis of faith. The party, 
they believe, has prostrated itself 
before the goddess Pragma, is 
fuzzy about Lenin and unclear 
about what it stands for. 

This week the party is holding 
its first congress since the Solidar- 
ity era and the Jaruzelski leader- 
ship will be answering the 
grumblers. Enemies will be identi- 
fied — Solidarity, Washington, ra- 
dical priests — new goals set 
(economic efficiency, brave new 
technical horizons) and a new 
politburo. even more strongly 
connected to Jaruzelski, elected. 

The real problem of the Polish 
Communists though is not ideo- 
logical (should we be tougher on 
the church, more aggressive to- 
wards private boutique owners 
etc) but rather one of self-con- 
fidence. Jaruzelski has guided the 
party through the see-saw of 
Solidarity, through the trauma of 
martial law. through factional in- 
fighting and into a state of 
narcoleptic calm normally asso- 
ciated with gurus on mountains. 
But the party has been too busy 
discrediting Solidarity to take in 
some of that era’s more obvious 
lessons, above all about inter- 
party democracy. In reaction to 
crisis it has centralized rather than 
devolved authority. To show itself 
strong it has excluded critics; to 
demonstrate (to Moscow for 
example) that it speaks with one 
voice, it has silenced others. 

The result is a stagnant party. It 
is admittedly recovering more 
quickly than some of its sister 
parties in the eastern bloc (includ- 
ing the Soviet Union) but many 
newcomers are the socialist 
equivalent of "yuppies” con- 
cerned with using the party as a 
vehicle for advancement. 

The party lost a million mem- 
bers between August 1980 and 
December 1982 as a result of 



resignations and expulsions. 
Membership now stands at about 
2-2 million, but it has not really 
replaced in quality what it lost 
during the worst crisis years. In 
1984 members aged between 18 
and 29 — the Solidarity and post- 
Solidarity generation — formed 
only 1 1 per cent of membership, 
and their percentage is now even 
lower. In some industrial prov- 
inces party membership is falling. 
Participation in local party meet- 
ings is lukewarm and it is often 
hard to find suitable candidates 
for medium-ranking posts. 

The party’s solution to this is 
typical of its current policy. It is 
proposing to change the statutes 
which forbid party officials from 
holding office for more than two 
terms, that is ten years. The idea of 
the original statute was to limit the 
number of full-time party or- 
ganizers, a laudable aim. But the 
effect has been to scare off top 
flight professionals — doctors, en- 
gineers, lawyers — who would suf- 
fer from a 10-year interruption in 




their careers. Nobody wants to 
take over these time-consuming' 
jobs. Now Jaruzelski will try to 
extend their terms of office to well 
beyond 10 years and make guar- 
antees for their future. 

While the middle ranks dwin- 
dle, Jaruzelski goes from strength 
to strength. He has no obvious 
challenger and whatever com- 
plaints may be heard at the 
congress the line will stay the 
same: limited economic reform 
concentrating 90 greater ef- 
ficiency, productivity and exports, 
accompanied by a strong but not 
over-Draconian security policy. 

Jaruzelski supporters think that 
this is the best thing that could 
have been done for the party; there 
is no political crisis and "norm- 
alization” — the state of induced 
calm — is more intelligently pur- 
sued than in Czechoslovakia. 
There are no disgraced Polish 
party historians stoking boilers or 
washing dishes. Jaruzelski’s men 
believe that if and when they can 
show economic results — above 


all improvements in living stan- 
dards - then the party will re- 
cover in the middle ranks. A 
successful party will inevitably 
attract young, talented people. 

That is the theory. But the 
paralyzing legacy of martial law, 
when the party was pushed rudely 
aside, is a hard one. How to 
convince it that h should be 
initiating economic policy, stim- 
ulating change, when the most 
important steps are hatched at the 
top, often secretly? Many party 
members would like to have a say 
in whether, for example, there 
should be a new amnesty for 
political prisoners. They would 
also have liked to have known in 
advance about the imposition of 
martial law. 

Those who argue for greater 
discussion, greater democracy and 
collaboration between grassroots 
party cells — rather than the con- 
stant shunt of information from 
top to bottom and approval from 
bottom to top — are out in the 
cold. The former Poznan party 
chief! displaced against the null of 
his local committee (and therefore 
violating a basic party regulation), 
was sent to Nigeria. The former 
Gdansk party boss, who agreed 
with Solidarity about the need to 
overhaul bureaucracy, was sent to 
the Polish embassy in Helsinki. 
Others, less prominent, were ex- 
pelled from the party. 

The sad feature of this congress, 
which has been carefully choreo- 
graphed, is that the only source of 
pressure on Jaruzelski comes from 
hardliners. These true believers 
see enemies closing in, like Mac- 
beth watching Dunsinane. Jaru- 
zelski is stealing their clothes: 
rounding up Solidarity, attacking 
America, accusing Nato of perm- 
eating Poland with spies, keeping 
the church at anus length, 
complaining about rebel priests. 
Fighting talk that leads nowhere. 
Mikhail Gorbachov, watching 
from the Warsaw rostrum, can be 
well satisfied: Poland is quiet 
again. But Poland, unlike every 
other Soviet bloc country, has- 
lived through the shock of the 
Solidarity years. 

Poland wants peace and quiet, 
yes, but not silence. The country 
needs candour, as man needs 
oxygen; the people have the right 
to demand this from a party which 
claims to lead the Polish nation. 


Schools: common sense in short supply 


The teachers’ pay dispute has 
drawn attention to a fundamental 
problem: that in their five years at 
secondary school, pupils spend an 
average of one and a half terms 
with stand-in teachers. 

Every year, more than 10 per 
cent of teachers are absent because 
of illness or bereavement or for 
professional reasons such as 
attending training courses or lead- 
ing school trips. Local authority 
arrangements for providing sub- 
stitutes — or “supply” teachers, as 
they are called — are unsystematic 
and inadequate. As a result for 
one class in every ten a secondary 
school pupil can expect to have a 
poorly briefed teacher, unfamiliar 
with how the school operates and 
with little or no expertise in the 
subject to be taught 

All curriculum planning, all 
school administration, and all 
aspirations for improving educa- 
tion assume that the pupil's own 
teacher will be present throughout 
the school year. Moreover, the 
pupil-teacher relationship in sub- 
jects such as English, mathematics 
and the humanities is now seen as 
more important than the use of 
textbooks. 

Modern education increasingly 
involves teachers in activities 
outside the classroom. Apart from 
invigilating examinations in other 
schools, attending courses, or 


council committee work there are 
school activities such as educa- 
tional visits, interviewing new 
pupils and pupil counselling. In 
each case teaching is left to others. 

The true extern of teacher 
absence is unknown. My figures 
are based on a study of teacher 
absence from service by the Inner 
London Education Authority. Ab- 
sence from timetabled teaching 
has been completely ignored — by 
the Department of Education, 
local authorities and unions. 

Schools cope with teacher ab- 
sence by expecting other staff to 
fill in during their own non- 
teaching time and by bringing in 
supply leathers. Neither is 
satisfactory- Supply teachers are 
paid on a daily basis at the rate of a 
full-time teacher’s salary. A 
supply teacher may take on the foil 
timetable of someone on extended 
absence or handle different prob- 
lems in different schools from day 
to day. In general, local education 
authorities deride a budget and 
draw up a “supply” panel of 
teachers who telephone each 
morning to see if they are needed. 
But busy education offices often 
do not have the time or the 
teachers on call to match the 
schools* needs with the available 
teachers. 

Supply teaching, hated by pupils 
and teachers alike, is the greatest 


planning flaw in our education 
system. Other aspects of school 
planning — from the number of 
chips a school orders to the 
number of urinals built or even 
the number of teachers on the 
staff — are simply supplied 
according to need, but an estimate 
of supply teaching has never been 
made. 

Absence rates, whether for per- 
sonal or professional reasons, 
should be suictlv monitored. For 
absence due to illness or other 
personal reasons, education 
authorities should negotiate with 
the unions on the proportion of 
cover by supply teachers. Limits 
on education authority funding 
orevent all such absence being 
covered in this way. Covering for 
authorized absence must also be 
controlled — otherwise schools 
will continue to find interesting 
things for teachers and pupils to 
do which require cover. So every 
year head teachere should be 
allocated a specific number of 
days per pupil when they would be 
guaranteed supply-teacher cover. 
They can then decide bow best to 
make use of those days. 

Teaching unions are concerned 
more with the occasions on which 
cover is required than the amount - 
For example, they insist that any 
absence of more than three days 
must be covered by a supply 


teacher. This limits a schoofs 
ability to match the right teacher 
to the right subject class. 

Teachers must agree to provide 
cover for a certain number of 
dasses during a colleague’s ab- 
sence, irrespective of the reason 
for absents or its duration. For 
this to work, LEAs need a new 
approach to cover based on need 
and not arbitrarily budgeted for as 
at present. 

Teachers for supply work are 
hard to get because of poor 
working conditions and no career 
structure. Their work is rarely if 
ever inspected. Nor are they given 
proper guidance. Tbejobhastobe 
made more satisfying, giving them 
both status and a career in the 
school system. They should have 
induction courses and regular in- 
service training. Schools should 
brief them adequately and link 
supply teachers with specific 
schools on a long-term basis. 

The ILEA has two groups of 
specialist teachers for use in 
emergencies — in science and 
craft design and technology — 
who are based at teachers' centres 
and have their own allowance 
structure. Such schemes could be 
extended to the supply teacher 
force generally.

Cultivating the 


* r.t* 



American cousins, visiting Lon- 
don, have been fuelling my dis- 
content with the way to®! 
.democracy works in Britain. 

The husband is director of parks 
and recreation in a small town m 
Florida. How small is smaliTWeil, 
about 18.000 people. 18 , 000 ?*™ 
exclaim in astonishment — that s 
tiny, the size of a fair-sized English 
parish council or two wards of a 
London borough. Besides pare* 
and recreation, the city runs its 
own police, fire, street cleaning 
and garbage collection services 
and nyrin t? 1 !** all but major roads. 
There are five elected politicians 
who appoint the city manager 
(currently a woman) who runs the 
show: die earns S 4 5,000 a year. 

Education? No that’s the school 
board, a larger unit which runs 35 
schools in an area, of 200,000 
population. It too is directly 
elected, again with five members, 
who appoint the school 
superintendent (57 5.000 a year). 
In recognition of their onerous, 
though part-time, duties, mem- 
bers of the board are paid $20,000 
a year. 

How much does party praitics 
enter into it? Not at all. No, really 
(in response to our incredulity). So 
any concerned parent or ordinary 
citizen can stand on the basis of 
his or her own record? Thai’s 
right. In fact my cousin had been 
very active in his own children's 
high school and had been pressed 
to stand. What, even though be 
was a senior dty official — was 
that allowed? The question 
seemed to surprise. The two 
bodies were quite separate. 

Both he and his wife had been 
campaigning for a School Board 
proposition recently put to the 
voters — to float a bond of 
$1 12 million for a school building 
and improvement programme, 
the improvements to include the 
completion of 100 per cent air- 
conditioning of all schools. (WelL 
I suppose that is not really a 
luxury in Florida.) The campaign 
had been a triumph, with 72 per 
cent in favour. 

As he spoke, 1 heard mentally 
the thud of heavy volumes of 
received wisdom hitting the dusL 
Reddiffe-Maud, Herbert, Widd-

local govenment theory started 
looking distinctly shaky, viz: 

• That communities of fewer than 
20.000 cannot be trusted to decide 
anything more important than the 
placing of litter-bins. 

• That an education authority is 
not "viable” unless it contains at 
least 50 schools, preferably far 
more. 

• That party politics /will always 
intrude into any electoral process. 

• That any elected body must 
consist of more than 20 people. 

• That there is something inher- 
ently improper in being a senior 
administrator on one body and an 
elected member of another.

century and foe prospect of yet 
another reorganization raises 
nothing but a groan. But the 
philosophy of regionalism is run- 
ning strong in all foe opposition 
parties and so it is possible that we 
are in for another round before the

If that happens, why shouldn't 
we use it as foe opportunity for a

below the proposed regions — let

would need your Little Pudd- 
ImgLons as wed as your Min- 
ingtowns, your Brixtons as well as 
your South Kensingtons). Give 
them a considerable dutch of 
powers, including capital spending 
subject only to a referendum. And 
let each be ran by a directly elected 
board of no more than five, paid a 
proper salary. (And of course — 
forgive me this plug — they 
would have to be eletied by foe

beany hope of true representative- 
ness).

A pig by any 
other noise 


Pigs, as all Englishmen know, go 
"oink". Bui if you try to strike up a 
conversation with a pig in Den- 
mark by going “oink”, it will stare 
at you with a wild surmise. For 
pigs there go "knori\ throwing m 
doubt foe whole question of 
exactly what sort of animal pro- 
vides our Danish bacon. 

A quick European survey will 
reveal the wide range of dif- 
ferences in noises that cats, dogs, 
pigs, horses, cocks, cows and owls 
mate in foe varying EEC coun- 
tries. Urgent questions at once 
spring to mind: 

• How can you be sure, when you 
are in Germany, that the animal 
going “prrrh” actually is a horse? 
Surely, it's cats that go “prrrh”. 

• Should animals taken abroad be 
retrained to speak foe lingo? It 
would be a pretty fruitless tide for 
a British cock, trained to say 
“cock-a-doodlc-do”, to try to en- 
gage in meaningful and ongoing 
dialogue with its Dutch counter- 
part going “kukeleku". 

• Is there enough evidence about 
linguistic distinctions to justify foe 
EEC setting up a commission? 
And if there is, should it take 
regional and dialect variations 
into account? 

Let us suppose that the modern 
evidence can be gathered and the 
distinctions tightly drawn. We 
should now add comparative ev- 
idence from foe more ancient 
languages. We know, for example, 
that Greek frogs went “brekekekex 
koax koax” and Greek dogs went 
“au au". There was even a 
grunting fish, sacred to Hermes, 
the boax (genus box boopsj, but we 
are given no hint of the sort of 
grunt it made: 

Suetonius has left us pages of 

atin nampc fnr animal inniul. 


Having acquainted, ourselves with 
them (grunnire — to grunt of pigs; 
mu&rc — to moo, of cows; 
baubare — to - bait)- we are in a 
position to make one of foe most 
important linguistic discoveries of 
all lime, one which should have 
the most serious implications for 
animal studies; by applying foe 
laws of comparative philology, we 
should be able to determine 
roughly what noise the original 
Indo-European ancestors of all 
our animals made. 

To jog the memory. Similarities 
in languages can be accounted for 
by supposing that they all devel- 
oped by a continuous process of 
change from a prehistoric (un- 
written) common ancestor, called 
conventionally “Indo-European” 
(IE). The “Indo-” gets in because 


Sanskrit shares its common an- 
cestry. Thus one can show that IE 
for “three" was "treies (hypotheti- 
cal words are prefixed by *). 
Interestingly, if one works back 
modern Italian by the laws of 
comparative philology, one ends 
up not with classical Latin, but 
with vulgar (Le. common, or- 
dinary) Latin — the language of 
foe proles. “Testa” (It- "head”, cf. 
French “tete") derives not from 
classical caput, but from the slang 
testa, “Tile” 

Let us therefore take foe first, 
tonering steps in what is bound to 
become an exciting new disci- 
pline- English “woof” would de- 
rive from Proto-Germanic "wufoz, 
IE *uupos. That would give proto- 
Greek *wupos, Attic *hupos, and 
at once we see foe connection we 
are looking for. The Attic Greek 
nupo means “under” (c£ hypo- 
dermic, going under the skin). And 
then we find that the Gothic for 
“under” is — u£ Clearly, we are 
home and dry. The very earliest 
dogs were underdogs. The sociol- 
ogy of the dog will have to be re- 
written. But we have a further 
fascinating possibility — that foe 
dog learned to say “woof” in 
faithful imitation of its master 
saying “under!" or “down!”, as 
-we should put it. 

Italians sneeze “ecci eocT. Now 
etche is the Basque for home. 
What possible connection can 
Jerete between sneezing and 
home? It is well known that there 
was in the ancient world a dear 
connection between sneezing and 
good luck. Given foe hazardous 
nature of travel, I wonder if one 
could find evidence of travellers 
sneezing for luck in order to get 
safely home!? Perhaps they not

PRIESTHOOD AND GENDER 




» 


The General Synod, which 
meets at the end of the week, 
determined in 1975 that the 
Church of England saw no 
fundamental objection to 
women priests. That placed an 
unfortunate halt to a theologi- 
cal jugument that should have 
been going on ever since if 
opponents and supporters of 
women's ordination were to be 
reconciled. With a Church 
crisis of historic proportions 
fast approaching, the theologi- 
cal component must be 
reintroduced into the argu- 
ment. 

At its most convincing, the 
case against women priests 
rests on four propositions. The 
first is that Jesus's selection of 
12 males as his apostles in- 
dicated a deliberate choice not 
..to select females. Men were to 
be his representatives - his 
priestly ministers — after his 
departure. The second is that 
St Paul's disapproval of 
women in authority over men 
in the church was, and is, 
normative for the church to- 
day, and is in fact pan of the 
natural order. The third is that 
the unbroken tradition of 
2,000 years is binding - a 
verdict with which Rome and 
Constantinople agree. And the 
fourth is that the Christian 
priesthood is related to gender 
as a symbolic (indeed, sacra- 
mental) indication of truths 
about God’s relationship to 
humankind. 

Strdng though the case may 
look, to controvert it is not an 
impossibility. Jesus did not, 
for instance, select any non- 
Jews; yet the church quickly 
realised that this had no lasting 
significance. St Paul faced St 
Peter at Jerusalem over it, and 
won. Circumcision, the mark 
of conversion to Judaism, was 
not to be required of Chris- 
tians. 

Had Jesus chosen women, 
moreover, he would have been 
acting' so contrary to the 
culture in which He lived that 
it would have distracted atten- 


tion from his real purpose. The 
disciples lived rough. Jewish 
regulations on relations be- 
tween the sexes were strict. 
And so on. Then, if Paul was 
right about circumcision (and 
Peter wrong), might not Paul 
himself have been merely 
reflecting the values of a male- 
dominated culture when he 
told women to keep their 
customary place? (He also told 
them to cover their heads; but 
no-one makes an issue out of 
that) Likewise, 2.000 years of 
unbroken tradition is not de- 
cisive. For almost all that time 
Christianity thought slavery 
was permissible, too. 

• Finally, the symbolic 
“maleness” of God, and the 
actual maleness of Jesus, are 
only relevant to the gender of 
the priesthood if the priest has 
to stand as Their personal 
representative in his manhood 
as well as in his humanity. 
Why isn’t his humanity suf- 
ficient? If it is, why isn’t the 
humanity of a woman suf- 
ficient too? 

Theological supporters of 
female ordination go on to 
argue that a priest must 
equally stand as a personal 
representative of all the hu- 
man race — which means both 
sexes of it. A single-sex priest- 
hood is therefore defective 
both in itself and as a teaching. 
If men may represent women, 
but not • women men, there 
must be something inadequate 
about women, something, as 
Aquinas appeared to think, 
missing Thus does the church 
powerfully compound a social 
injustice. 

Have, then, the supporters 
of womens’ ordination not 
only upset the presumption 
against them, but established 
the contrary one? Not entirely. 
For the theological confronta- 
tion is bedevilled by un- 
certainty about the priesthood 
itself — uncertainty about 
whether this or that symbol is 
intended or accidental, passing 
or permanent It might be 


useful to start the argument 
again at a different point 

That point might well be the 
growing consensus among 
Christian theologians of aU 
schools and denominations 
that priesthood is a primary' 
characteristic of the whole 
church. Within this priestly 
work, the one fundamentally 
characteristic action — what 
makes Christianity itself and 
not something else — is the 
celebration of the Eucharist 
The priestly People of God, 
men and women, are led by 
their representative, who is 
also the representative of 
Christ Himself, in their 
commemoration and 
participation in Christ's pas- 
sion, death and new life. 

Can they do that, if the 
representative is female? Or is 
it an obstacle to their doing it 
and to their understanding of 
what they are doing? Or could 
it, in reverse, reveal the mys- 
tery even better? 

Those questions depend for 
their answers on both con- 
scious and subconscious recog- 
nition, the intuitive as well as 
the intellectual. The con- 
ditional solution is this: if 
those forms of representation 
can as effectively be done by a 
woman as by a man, then 
women can and should be 
ordained. But if at some level 
or layer of human perception 
and understanding that repre- 
sentativeness cannot — or 
perhaps cannot yet — be 
fulfilled by a woman, then the 
church would be making a 
mistake. 

The Church of England is 
perhaps close to satisfying 
itself that the former is the 
truer account of its members' 
state of mind and heart. But it 
would be a judgement more 
confidently made if the fun- 
damental argument had been 
sustained beyond 1975, in- 
stead of these deep matters 
being decided by calculations 
of an essentially superficial 
character, matters of tactics, 
voting majorities, and threats. 


JOHN PAUL’S OTHER ISLAND 


* 


Last week Irish voters rejected 
a proposed constitutional 
amendment in . favour of lim- 
ited civil divorce by a decisive 
majority. The size of this 
defeat, which was not antici- 
pated until shortly before poll- 
ing. has implications for the 
future of Dr. Garrett 
FitzGerald’s “constitutional 
crusade”, his precarious co- 
alition, the balance between 
Church and State in one of 
Europe's most devout Roman 
Catholic countries — and for 
relations between the two parts 
of Ireland. 

Dr.FitzGerald and his Min- 
isters claimed in the campaign 
that they were in a “’no-win” 
position: if they lost. Unionists 
in the North would claim 
confirmation of their worst 
fears about a priest-ridden 
Republic. If the amendment 
passed, Unionists would take 
no notice. 

This was disingenuous. 
Dr.FitzGerald is on record as 
describing changes of the kind 
just unsuccessfully attempted 
as essential to the task of 
altering Unionist attitudes to- 
wards the South. And he was 
correct. There are good rea- 
sons for introducing divorce in 
Ireland which have nothing to 
do with Northern Ireland, but 
the referendum was one of a 
series of moves long-planned 
by Dr.FitzGerald to make the 
Irish Republic a congenial 


destination for non-Catholics. 

His reasoning was not that 
the Ulster Protestants are keen 
advocates of divorce for its 
own sake. Far from it But in 
common, for once, with other 
sections of British opinion, 
they recognise that opposition 
to civil divorce is a symptom 
of that old-fashioned Catholic 
triumphalism which, when it 
dominates a society, takes too 
narrow a view of the civil and 
religious rights of other citi- 
zens. While the introduction 
of legal divorce might not have 
had much effect in the North, 
its rejection will have an 
impact because it seems to 
confirm Unionist beliefs about 
the meaning of Home Rule. 

And, indeed, it does tell us 
something — though some- 
thing more complicated — 
about the priorities of South- 
erners. Many Irish people 
support, with greatly varying 
intensity, the idea that the two 
parts of Ireland should be 
united and independent of 
Britain. If this (or anything 
approaching it) is ever to be 
realised peacefully, it will only 
be when the society of the 
South is as attractive as pos- 
sible to the people of the 
North. Last Thursday’s vote is 
the clearest possible indication 
that enhancing such 
attractivenesss is a very low- 
ranking hem on the Irish 
national agenda. 


A few brave Irish politicians 
have suggested that South- 
erners should admit the hypoc- 
risy - of their desire for 
reunification since they are not 
prepared to pay any price for it 
and may no longer seriously 
want it except at the level of an 
agreeable daydream. Perhaps 
the claim to the North should 
be reclassified as — to borrow 
Dr.Conor Cruise O’Brien's un- 
kind phrase — a “low-intensity 
aspiration”. 

Voices like these are usually 
hushed by louder and more 
numerous ones in favour of 
the traditional pieties. A 
significant section of the Irish 
political establishment be- 
lieves, in effect, that a high- 
imensity nationalist aspiration 
is compatible with a country 
whose social law admits al- 
most no religious plurality. 
The referendum result ex- 
presses this attitude all too 
plainly. But it is a contradic- 
tion in terms. 

Ultimately the Irish people 
must choose between striving 
for the ideal ofa united Ireland 
and preserving a Catholic 
social state. Dr.FitzGerald ob- 
viously prefers the former. He 
deserves credit for trying to get 
his people to face up to this 
choice and work out what they 
want. As it turns out, however, 
what they want is not what he 
wants. 


MR GANDHI HESITATES 


% In the last two years, India, 
seen from abroad, has been 
chained to a single phrase: ‘The 
problems of Punjab". These 
problems have brought waves 
of terrorist violence, moments 
of sectarian butchery, and 
even the possibility of seces- 
sion and civil war. Moments of 
hope — when the influence of 
reconciliation and sound com- 
mon sense was briefly in the 
ascendant — did not last. 

This month India experi- 
enced another serious dis- 
appointment. On the 21st, 

■ Chandigarh was to have been 
• transferred to Punjab as its 
sole capital, ending two de- 
cades of dispute with 
neighbouring Haryana over its 
ownership. The Sikh cry for 
Chandigarh — the main de- 
mand of the AkaJi Dal, the 
moderate Sikh political party 
— has long acquired symbolic 
$5 . significance. Its possession has 
1 heroine a test of fair treatment 
which Sikhs apply to their 
position in India. A commit- 
ment to- hand it over this 
January. formed part of the 
July iggs peace ‘accord be- 
tweeh tiie -AkaHs and Mr Rajiv 
Gandhi; foOureto do so led to 


the crisis this year. 

The transfer of Chandigarh 
would therefore have been a 
critical step forward. But at the 
eleventh hour it was post- 
poned because compensation 
for Haryana could not be 
agreed. The Akalis had agreed 
in principle to hand over 
70,000 acres, but only two 
thirds of this could be identi- 
fied in lime. The choice which 
Mr Gandhi laced was either to 
proceed with the transfer and 
make good Haryana’s shortfall 
at some later date, or to 
postpone the entire deal again. 

Neither option was cost free. 
The former would have an- 
gered Hindu chauvinists in 
Haryana and further under- 
mined the already bleak elec- 
toral prospects of the. Congress 
Party in that state. With 
elections due in Haryana next 
year, Mr Gandhi, it seems, 
chose to incur the costs of 
postponement 

These, however, could turn 
out io be greater in the long 
run. A second failure to trans- 
fer Chandigarh will erode the 
position of moderate Sikhs in 
Punjab whom the Prime Min- 
ister supports against ex- 


tremists now openly calling for 
secession. At the same time it 
will strengthen the dissidents 
within the Akali ranks, who 
want a higher price for peace 
than Chandigarh. Worst of all. 
it may have given militant 
Hindu organisations the im- 
pression that if they can only 
frighten enough Congress 
members, Mr.Gandhi may yet 
renege altogether on his 
committments to Punjab. 

At the time of the July 1 985 
peace accord, Mr Gandhi re- 
alized that India's Sikhs felt a 
sense of injury which could 
only be appeased with con- 
cessions. He accordingly ac- 
cepted their demands in large 
-measure. If politics within his 
party, within the Hindu 
community and even within 
the Sikhs themselves, has now 
intervened, yielding to such 
interests will undermine not 
only the accord, but perhaps 
his own credibility as well. 
Standing by his commitments 
still gives him the best hope of 
restoring peace to Punjab. And 
that, when “the problems of 
Punjab” are the problem of 
India, nuisi be his first con- 
cern. 


Rising tide of 
homelessness 

From Mr David Fisher 
Sir. You reported (June 2 6) that 
according to the Child Poverty 
Action Group and the Low Pay 
Unit ihere has been “a startling 
increase” in poverty since 1979. 
Certainly this increase can be 
clearly seen in the rising numbers 
of homeless people. 

In 1978. 53,000 households 
were officially accepted by local 
authorities as being homeless in 
England; in 1985 the figure was 
94,000. i.And even these figures 
seriously underestimate the real 
scale of) the homeless problem. 
They refer only to the number of 
households accepted as homeless 
under the provisions of the Hous- 
ing (Homeless Persons) Act 1977. 
In practice this means that they 
are confined to families with 
children, expectant mothers and 
elderly or "vulnerable” single 
people. They ignore the majority 
of single homeless people and 
childless couples. 

In the first half ofl984, nation- 
ally. less than half the 89,000 
households recorded as homeless 
applicants were accepted by local 
authorities as in the “priority 
need" category of those with a 
right to re-housing under the Act 
Many other homeless people not 
prioritized by the Act never even 
approach their local council. 

Although exart figures for the 
number of people actually forced 
to sleep rough on our streets are 
virtually impossible to calculate, 
the Simon Community, which 
works among rough sleepers in 
London, is in no doubt that this 
number has also increased. There 
are especially many more young 
homeless people having to sleep 
out We estimate that the number 
of people sleeping rough in Lon- 
don alone is now well over 1 0.000. 

Homelessness has increased 
since 1979 and we believe that 
recent Government proposals are 
only going to make the situation 
worse. For example, the board and 
lodging limits will affect thou- 
sands of young unemployed peo- 
ple. Between 1984 and 1985 the 
number of hotels in London 
charging below the DHSS limits 
has dropped by two thirds and 
only one hotel in three below the 
limits is likely to have any 
vacancies. 

The Government's “care in the 
community” programme, with the 
closure of large psychiatric hos- 
pitals and also the closure of 
resettlement units, will also have 
the effect of making more people 
homeless. 

Whilst we still struggle with our 
social problems today, we are 
planting the seeds of poverty for 
tomorrow.

Role of warships 

From the Hydrographer of the 
Wavy 

Sir. In his letter of June 23 Dr T. J. 
G. Francis states that “no British 
oceanographic ship has operated 
in the eastern Indian Ocean or the 
West Pacific in the last thirty 
years”. While this statement may 
be correct if the term “British 
oceanographic ship” is confined to 
vessels operated under the aegis of 
the Institute of Oceanographic 
Sciences, it is certainly not correct 
if the definition is drawn more 
widely. 

Ignoring the question of 
whether “showing the flag” is one 
of a warship's primary tasks in 
peacetime, the record needs to be 
set straight for at least one class of 
ship who habitually combine 
hydrographic and oceanographic 
research with “showing the flag” — 

1 refer, of course, to the ships of 
the Royal Navy’s Surveying Ser- 
vice. 

There has been an almost 
continuous presence in Far East- 
ern waters since the years follow- 
ing World War II - HMS 
Dam pier from 1948 to 1967. HMS 
Cook from 1957to 1 963 and HMS 
Hydra from 1969 to 1976. 

These ships not only gathered 
valuable scientific data, but also 
made a positive contribution to 
British presence throughout the 
south-west Pacific, most notably 
when HMS Hydra attended the 
Fiji independence celebrations in 
1974 with HRH the Prince of 
Wales embarked. 

HM surveying ships continue to 
maintain a presence far beyond 
our own home waters as HMS 
Hydra's recent activity in support 
of the South Yemen evacuation 
demonstrates.

Deep waters 

From Mr D. P. Barrett 
Sir, In his pleasant article on travel 
in Knoydart (June 14) your 
comribuior Andrew Billen has 
wrongly identified Lochs Nevis 
and Hourn as the Lochs of Hell 
and Heaven respectively. Far 
from it Nevis is Heaven, and is 
cognate with nef (Welsh), neamh 
(Irish) and nebo (Russian). The 
etymology of Houm escapes me, 
but with a choice of two . . . 

May we hope that, when the bell 
that tolls for us all comes to toll for 
Mr Billen, the authorities who 
direct these matters will take a 
tolerant view. 

Yours faithfully,

A new geography for employment 


From Mr Ian H'esion Smith 
Sir. May l suggest that Ronald 
Butt's article (June 19). where he 
points the way to new “enterprise 
culture" investment in the 
stricken regions of the North, 
deserves careful attention. 

In our working party report for 
Aims of Industry (Towards a New 
Philosophy for Employment ) we 
put the case for a “broad-based 
working party to study and plan 
the future of these communities 
with a time horizon of 20 years”. 
Surely now is the moment for the 
Government to set up such a 
working party and to include Mr 
Butt's proposals in their terms of 
reference? 

There is some encouraging 
background which can already be 
taken into account — e.g.. Sir 
Charles Vilfiers’ British Steel 
Industries* above-average success 
rate in the creation of new small 
businesses in the communities 
formerly dominated by steel; also 
John Redwood’s most helpful 
analysis of the geography of 
unemployment. 

The latter shows that the 
successful creation of jobs is very’ 
largely due to vitality and 
imagination among the people of a 
community and that its proximity 
to the run-down areas of the 1 9th 
century is not necessarily in any 
way an inhibiting fanor. 

An important matter is. of 
course, mobility. Young men and 
women are at present prevented 
from moving to areas where there 
are vacancies for their skills by the 
absence of accommodation which 
they can rent. There are derelict 
areas in the South { not requiring 


green belt paving stones) which 
could quickly be covered by the 
private sector with dwellings for 
this vitally important market. 
Surely this subject is another 
essentia) reference for such a 
working party? 

A stream of young people 
moving successfully away from 
the afflicted areas must stimulate 
the imagination of those who, for 
their own reasons, are determined 
to remain. 

There is another large potential 
advantage in a strenuous effort to 
revive enterprise investment in 
the North. Manufacturing in- 
dustry would, I feel, react with 
enthusiasm to such an imagi- 
native attempt to grapple with a 
legacy which inevitably pricks the 
conscience, thus helping to mend 
fences with a Government which 
appears to have too little under- 
standing for the underlying anxi- 
eties of Lord Aldington's report 
and rather too much enthusiasm 
for a service sector, tbe growth of 
which, in the long term, always 
needs healthy manufacturing in- 
dustry to sustain it. 

As far as pay restraint is 
concerned. I fear that the 
Chancellor’s exhortations are as a 
voice crying in the wilderness. 
Having liberated the spirit of 
independence with a hearty rub of 
Thatcher capitalism you cannot 
simply stuff the genie back into the 
bottle.

Ordination of women 

From the Rev Dr D. G. Rowell 
Sir, The Bishop of Southwark and 
his episcopal colleagues in their 
letter (June 16) comment on the 
authority of autonomous churches 
to act in the matter of the 
ordination of women, arguing that 
this is a legitimate area for such 
autonomous action on the 
grounds that it is “a second-order 
question". One may indeed agree 
that it is a second-order question 
without thereby conceding that it 
is appropriate for autonomous 
churches so to art. 

Second-order questions can be 
of many lands. The recent state- 
ment of the House of Bishops, The 
Nature of Christian Beliefs would 
seem to imply that the virginal 
conception and the empty tomb 
are “second-order questions" in 
comparison with the doctrines of 
the Incarnation and the Resurrec- 
tion. The use of bread and wine in 
the Eucharist might well be 
deemed a second-order question 
in comparison with adherence to 
the historic creeds, yet it would be 
inappropriate for a church to act 
autonomously to allow other 
sacramental elements to be used. 

Historic Anglicanism has al- 
ways appealed to a common 
tradition of belief and practice, 
and the Nature of Christian Belief 
speaks of the need for the Church 
of England to keep in mind “the 


many and steadily deepening ways 
in which we explore with other 
communions the common faith 
we have inherited”. 

Second-order questions may 
have a first-order significance in 
the common life of the Church, if 
claims to autonomy override the 
claims of communion, as when 
action is taken which has the 
undoubted result of there no 
longer being a commonly accepted 
ministry where once this was the 
case. Such would clearly be the 
result of the ordination of women 
to the episcopate, and it is 
doubtful whether the ordination 
of women to the priesthood can 
properly be distinguished from 
this theologically. 

By claiming an autonomy that is 
insensitive to the claims of 
communion the Anglican 
Communion is already in the 
position of not having a com- 
monly accepted ministry and the 
full consequences of this have still 
to be seen. Action which would 
result in a similar situation within 
the Church of England is surely a 
first-order question of the relation 
of faith and order and the proper 
recognition of the bonds of 
communion in the Church.

Law and roads 

From Councillor Trevor J. Brown 
Sir, The call by doctors for a 
greater police effort against 
drunken driving is welcome sup- 
port to those of us who have been 
requesting, through county coun- 
cils and police authorities, more 
law and order on our roads. 

The first essential is for those 
bodies to meet with the Depart- 
ment of Transport to jointly 
review the options available and 
then decide which to implement. 
My own belief is that a successful 
choice would be campaigns using 
extra police forces in chosen areas, 
coupled with a high-quality public 
education exercise, to get across 
the message that law-breaking on 
the roads will not be tolerated. 

It is a sad fact that repeated calls 
made, on the Council of the Royal 
County of Berkshire, the Thames 
Valley Police Authority and the 
Association of County Councils 
have failed to make progress 
towards this end. 

One of the problems is shortage 
of officers. In the Thames Valley 


our police force is 750 officers 
below the number needed just to 
bring us up to the average police 
population figure for England and 
Wales, even though we have the 
greatest motorway mileage of any 
force. 

Our traffic division, with 330 
men, is some 450 short of the 
number required by Home Office 
guidelines related to the road 
mileage to be policed. Yet the 
Home Secretary has only allowed 
a 50-man increase in the whole 
force, barely enough to keep pace 
with the area's increase in popula- 
tion. 

Many of my constituents are 
asking why the campaigns against 
illegalities by trade unionists, 
peace campers and hippy trav- 
ellers cannot be followed by 
campaigns against illegalities on 
our increasingly frenzied roads. 
It's a good question. What answer 
can 1 give them? 

Yours faithfully.

S. Africa sanctions 

From Mr fC D. Jamieson 
Sir. In the discussion on sanctions 
against South Africa nobody 
seems to have touched on a point 
of basic principle: the propriety of 
using economic sanctions to pun- 
ish or deter an immoral domestic 
policy as distinct from an act or 
policy of external aggression. 

External aggression can be 
objectively recognised by its very 
externality. Moreover, if allowed 
to go unchecked it can, as my 
generation found to its cost, 
endanger our national security. 

Economic sanctions are a legiti- 
mate method of trying to check it. 
Indeed if the purpose of sanctions 
against South Africa were to deter 
a persistent policy of aggression 
against neighbouring states there 
would be a clear case for consid- 
eration. But that is not what the 
argument is about it is about the 
moral issue. 

When it comes to the morality 
of a country’s domestic policy 
judgement becomes at best subjec- 
tive, ai worst dependent on special 
pleading or even double stan- 
dards. Moreover, even in the rare 
cases like that of South Africa, 
where we can all agree on the 
immorality of die policy, it does 
not of itself endanger our national 
security, nor for that matter that of 
other countries. 

IC then, apartheid is a moral 
issue, which does not afreet our 
national security or prosperity, 
has the Government the right to 
pre-empt our persona] judgement 


and decisions? As an individual I 
do not wish to visit South Africa, 
to invest there or to buy South 
African sherry. It is probably 
proper for my church to tell me 
that as a Christian I should not do 
so. But I very much doubt if it is 
proper for my Government to tell 
me that as a citizen I must not

Student loans 

From Mr .4. D. Hoadicv 
Sir, Mr H. G. Harney (June 24) 
may find that if he calculates the 
cost to Sheffield Education 
Committee of proriding an in- 
terest-free loan, repayable over six 
years (or presumably nine years 
from the start of his course), it 
would have been more economi- 
cal to have given him the money 
in the first place. 

It is not proven that the case for 
loans is pragmatic rather than 
ideological 

The graduate's capacity to repay 
will not generally be developed 
until several years after gradua- 
tion. The financial position of a 
graduate recruit is likely to com- 
part unfavourably with that which 
the same person could achieve by 
working for three or four years 
instead of going to university.

ON THIS DAY 


JUNE 30 1840 

News from the provinces. In its 
vilification of Robert Owen (1771 
1K5$> the Staffordshire Gazette 
displayed a remarkable disregard 
for the law of libel. The "elegant 
process ” Campbell suffered was 
having his hat crushed over his 
eyes. Judging from the pages of 
The Times during this year, 
Birmingham was one of a number 
of cities going through a trade 
depression. 


BURSLEM.— SIGNAL FAIL- 
URE OF THE NOTORIOUS 
ROBERT OWEN.-On Sunday 
morning placards were posted 
about this town and 
neighbourhood, announcing that 
lectures would be delivered at 
miserable hovel known as the Hall 
of Science, Dale Hall, Longport, by 
the Socialist missionary, Alexan 
der Campbell, on the afternoon and 
evening of that day. It was also 
announced that that grey-headed 
panderer to immorality, Robert 
Owen, would deliver at the same 
infidel arena his views of Socialism 
on tbe following night. Upon the 
Monday evening an immense 
crowd assembled in the 
neighbourhood of Dale Hall, deter- 
mined to prevent Owen from 
entering into an exposition of his 
infidel principles. They provided 
themselves with music of the 
marrowbone and cleaver order, to 
wit, sundry discordant drums and 
files. Upon the hero of the night 
appearing upon the spot, tbe 
people lifted him out of the gig, but 
not to do him honour. They chased 
him through the street, but 
hospitable roof was open for bis 
reception, and but for the interven 
tion of Mr. Enoch Wood, Jun., the 
Rev. J. Noble, and other gentle 
men, he would have received rough 
treatment from the hands of the 
incensed multitude. Mr. E. Wood 
kindly gave the unhappy man 
shelter in his own house, where he 
remained until the crowd dis- 
persed. Far more severe was the 
punishment inflicted upon his 
misguided associate, Campbell. Be- 
ing warned by some gentlemen 
against going to the place 
appointment, he hurried away, and 
when he thought himself beyond 
the reach of the crowd he turned 
round and made insulting gestures. 
In so doing, however, be forgot that 
wholesome maxim which enjoins 
us not to holloa before we are out of 
the wood. A large party of individ 
uals pursued, and overtook him 
and proceeded to treat him without 
ceremony. They rolled their victim 
in tbe field, and afterwards anoint 
ed him with that more useful than 
agreeable material, clay, likewise 
subjecting him to that elegant 
process called "bonnetting”. Even 
tually he made his escape to the 
Britannia Inn, Navigation -road; 
and we apprehend that the worthy 
people of Longport will after this 
spectacle not be inclined rejoicing- 
to sing "The Campbells are 
coming." Certainly we think the 
Socialists will not be again dis 
posed to trust their organization to 
the tender mercies to which the 
external circumstances of the pop- 
ular indignation of the Potteries 
may subject it .— Staffordshire 
Gazette. 


STATE OF BIRMINGHAM.-To 
give anything like a correct picture 
of the depressed state of trade in 
Birmingham, and its conse- 
quences, would be no easy matter; a 
few facts may give some idea. The 
oldest, most" extensive, and re 
spectable merchants, manufactur- 
ers. and traders, concur in 
representing the present depres 
sion as unprecedented in their 
experience. 10.000 applications, by 
working men and women, for free 
passages to Australia have been 
made, and refused, within the last 
two months, at one emigration- 
office in the town. Between 20 and 
30 good houses and retail shops are 
umenanted in three of the princi- 
pal streets, and thousands of 
middle and small -Tented houses are 
unoccupied in every part of the 
borough. The walls are literally 
covered daily with auction -bills 
and a purchaser can hardly be 
found for either leasehold or 
freehold property. The brokers*' 
shops are crammed with goods 
purchased at half the cost price. 
The pawnbrokers, being complete- 
stocked. refuse any except what 
are termed best pledges. Thou- 
sands of mechanics are living on 
half wages, thousands on quarter 
wages, and numbers of creatures 
are sustained by means known only 
the Almighty himself. Upwards 
of 300 applications were made to 
the GJ aces ter Railway Company 
situations as guards, &c.. 
within the last month. The poor- 
rate is doubled, and numbers are 
leaving their houses to escape 
paying it. All is gloomy, and no one 
can see a prospect of improvement. 

the midst of these symptoms off 
distress we have an apparent 
anomaly, of which we have in vain 
sought an exp Lanai ion. Everywhere 
the outskirts streets are being 
laid out, and houses rising, as if by 
magic. Walk out today, you have a 
green field — tomorrow it is' 
covered with elegant buildings; and 
24 hours more they are Let and 
tenanted. We believe we do not 1 
exaggerate when we say, that for, 
the last 12 months not a house in 
Edgbaston parish has stood empty!

The Roman Catholic Church has been 
no help at all to the Church of England 
in its long anguish concerning female 
ordination. The publication of letters 
between Lambeth Palace and the Vati- 
can, now imminent, will only increase 
the Anglican agony and frustration. But 
it is not entirely facetious to suggest that 
female ordination will remain forbidden 
bv Rome until one bright morning the 
world win wake op to find it has become 
compulsory; and Canterbury will not be 
informed in advance. 

The relationship between those two 
churches is an unequal one, largely 
because of the disparity of sire. For 
historical reasons, as well as the 
presence of a large parallel Catholic 
church in England, the Church of 
England has to be very serious about 
what Rome thinks and does, even if it 
manifestly disagrees. 

Rome, meanwhile, sees itself as the 
centre of the ecclesiastical universe, with 
Anglican -Roman Catholic ecumenism 
the concern of one small section of one of 
many Vatican departments. The priority 
in the work of the Secretariat for 
Christian Unity is Eastern Orthodoxy. 
That is all the more so under a Slav 
Pope; but even that is for from being the 
top item on the Vatican's agenda. 

In the detail of the Anglican argu- 
ments about women priests, neverthe- 
less, the Roman Catholic position is 
important and not jnst to Anglo- 
Catbolics. It is the Chnrch of England's 
proud boast that it possesses all the 
essentials of the historic threefold 
ministerial priesthood, as it belonged to 
the early church and to united Christen- 
dom before the divisions; and as it still 
belongs to the components of disunited 
Christendom today, principally Rome. 
Orthodoxy, and the Anglican Commu- 
nion. The Church of England has 
recommitted itself to its membership of 
this ancient and episcopal trinity in this 
generation, when it runted down unity 


proposals with the major Free 
Churches. So whether or not Anglkan- 
Romaa Catholic unity is judged to be a 
priority in itself, and even if it were 
remote or impossible, Anglicanism's 
identity and historic tradition is sees to 
be at stake. 

Although though there are angry 
rumblings from discontented feminist' 
Catholics in America, where they are 
trying to push the issue onto the ageada, 
it is in Anglicanism rather than Cathoti- 
cism, there and in Britain, that female 
. ordination has become a centra] issue. 

' That to some extent reflects the more 
open and democratic nature of Anglican 
church st r u ct ure s, which are much more 
amenable to lobbying and campaigning- 
Roman Catholic authoritarianism, even 
in its benign and wn-triampbatist 
modern dress, makes purchase and 
leverage by pressure groups more 
difficult. 

There may be other reasons too. 
Anglicanism offers not a great deal to a 
woman with a strong sense of reGgioos 
vocation, at least compared with the 
glories of the Catholic female reftgioas 
orders. Were those orders to be closed 
down, there would be many more 
Catholic women looking for somewhere 
to fulfil their vocations, and looking 
resentfully towards the men-only priest- 
hood. Nuns are central to the life of the 
Catholic Church, in every parish and in 
every walk of life, whereas in Anglican- 
ism they are more marginal, England 
has 9,700 Roman Catholic nans, nearly 
two for every priest and 1,100 Anglican 
nuns, one for every 10 priests. If 
consecrated sisters are coanted as part 
of the church's professional ministry, 
the allegedly “male chauvinistic'' Ro- 
man Catholic Chnrch in England has in 
fact a for more feminine face to it than 
any other, including the Free Churches 
with their sprinkling of ordained female 
ministers. No-one should ever try telling 
a mm that she was, as a woman, a second 
class Christian. There is no more 


admired woman in tbeworW than 
Mother Teresa, non. " 

It is also sometimes suggested that 
foe coitus of the Virgin Mary, stiB very 
widely observed in the Roman Catholic 
Chnrch and only marginally m the 
Church of England, has helped to 
presme the feminine, motherly, de- 
ment in Catholic -spirituality, while its 
absence in Andkanistn makes it a very 
male sort of reOgton. 

These reasons may hdp to explain 
why the issue is so much ; less pnbtkly 
controversial is the Roman CathoBc 
Chnrch, even thongh thereis evidence erf 
a widespread feeling among Catholics 
that the arguments against women 
priests are not particularly convincing. 
Among theologians it is still largely an 
academic poral; though it is not general- 
ly thought that the official position is 
immutable. The numerous works of 
contemporary Catholic theology that 
have been written about the priesthood, 
particularly as part of the e c ume ni cal 
process, never seem to disenss the 
fundamentals in a wan;, that would be 
significantly alteied if the priest h ood 
was open to both sexes. There does not 
appear to be anything in the decrees of 
the Second Vatican Council that treats 
the gender of the priest as. a vital 
component in the Catholic Chorda's 
doctrine of priesthood. It was not the 
issue they were thinking about, of 
coarse, bat their doctrinal statements 
were designed to be comprehensive and 
complete. If there is something vital 
about the priesthood connected with 
gender, they would sorely have said so. 

That merely increases the Anglican 
frustration with Rome, for it allows room 
for the suspicion that m'its own good 
time Roman Catholicism might pull the 
rug oat from under the feet of Anglo- 
Catholic objections. If that is the way 
things are moving, then why should the 
Chnrch of England be so shy of bring 
first? Or on the other hand, why should 
it not be contort to waft?

Geotge Howe, flic actor 
who was among flic most 
consistent character men on 
the Lambeth stage where, 
through 60 vears, he played a 
remarkable range of often 
classical parts, died suddenly 
in Brighton on June 24. He 
was 86. 

He was known especially for 
his Polonius which he ted 
acted to the Hamlets of John 
Gielgud and Laurence Olivier 
(he went to Elsinore with each 
of them) as wefl as al Stral- 
foid-npon-Avou. _ . 

James Agate, witling of a 
1937 performance, called him 
-•The best Polonius anybody 
has ever seen” 

Howe never exaggerated, it 
was one of his important 
strengths that he did not. 
From relatively early in his 
career he would play the older 
men with a mellow humour 
that was expressed in his 
Canon Chasuble in The Im- 
portance of Being Earnest, 
with Gielgud in 1939. 

He did a lot with Gielgud: 
and. since their first meeting 
at the Old Vic in 1930-31. 
down the years supported him 
loyally in such parts as Friar 
Laurence, the Duke of York in 
Richard II, Lob in Dear 
Brunts, and the Old Shepherd 
in The Mlntefs Tale. 

Howe was born in Chile in 
1900 and went in turn to 
Harrow, the RMC Sandhurst, 
and Christ Church. Oxford, 
before enrolling at RADA, a 
term or two ahead of Gielgud. 

When Gielgud was leading 
man of the CHd Vic Company- 
in 1930, Howe and Sir Ralph 
Richardson were recruited to 
iL and the three; having 
formed an unofficial sub- 
committee, "discussed and 
hinted and generally inter- 
fered over the productions'*. 

Some of Howe's first work 
was with Barry Jackson's com- 
panies in Birmingham and 
London, and with the Strat- 
ford-upon-Avon Festival 






Howe as Afeie in *Tbe

times. 

He was in the Stratford cast fo

Badel* s Hamlet During 196..- 
63 he was in the last London 
season of the Old Vic compa- 
nv - as. for example. Escalus in 
.Measure for Measure. 

He toured Europe and 
South America in Shakespeare 
(19641 for the British Council. 

At the Ro>al Court, in 1966. 
he was in plays b> Granville 
Barker la revival of The 
Vuvser Inheritance) and Ar- 
nold Wesker, and afterwards, 
at various theatres, he served, 
in valuable character, such 
dramatists as Lonsdale. Con- 
greve. Chekhov. 3rd tneviia-* 
blv Shakespeare: in 
Greenwich Hamlei ( 19<4j he 
was. for a change, the 
Gravedigger, directed by Jon- 
athan Miller. 

He also gave special perfor- 
mances in films, radio and 
television plavs, among them

PROFESSOR FRANK DICKENS 


Professor Frank Dickens. 
FRS. FIBiol., a biochemist 
who established an interna- 
tional reputation for his pio- 
neering and fundamental 
research on the biochemistry 
of normal and tumour tissues, 
a field of study to which be 
contributed for more than 30 
years, died on June 25. 

He was a major contributor 
to the discovery of an impor- 
tant route of glucose metabo- 
lism. which, even today, 
remains a significant marker 
of the rate of tumour growth. 

Dickens, was bom in 1899 
and became a Scholar of 
Magdalene College. Cam- 
bridge. before embarking on 
research in organic chemistry 
at Imperial College London. 

In 1923 he became the first 
Lecturer in Biochemistry at 
the Middlesex Hospital Medi- 
cal School joining E. C. 
Dodds, the lively young medi- 
cal doctor who was among the 
pioneers in the application of 
biochemistry to medicine. 

Together, they were the first 
in Britain to extract insulin 
from pancreas following the 
discovery of this hormone by 
Banting and Best in Toronto 
in 1921. 

In the late 1920s, Dickens 
spent some time with the 
famous German biochemist 
Otto Warburg and subse- 
quently translated his book. 
Metabolism of Tumours. 

Warburg inspired Dickens' 
work on carbohydrate metab- 
olism which he pursued on his 
appointment as Director of 


the North of England Council 
of the British Empire Cancer 
Research Campaign (now the 
Cancer Research Campaign) 
from 1933to 1946. 

During the war he worked 
for the Royal Naval Personnel 
Committee of the Medical 
Research Council at the Na- 
tional Institute for Medical 
Research. Hampstead. 

He was attracted back by 
Dodds to the Courtauld Insti- 
tute at the Middlesex in 1946 
and was Ihe first holder of the 
Philip Hill Chair of Expcri- 
mental Biochemistry: in the,* 
same year he was elected FRS. 

Here, Dickens directed a 
research group, continuing his 
work on glucose metabolism 
in norma! and tumour tissues, 
oxygen toxicity and carcino- 
genesis, including important 
studies on carcinogenic lac- 
tones and aflatoxin. 

His life-long interest in 
chemical carcinogenesis was 
■continued when he was ap* 
'pointed Director of the Tobac- 
co Research Council 
Laboratories at Harrogate, an 
inspired choice, and a post he 
occupied from 1967-69. 

During this period he was 
influential in advising the 
tobacco industry on the possi- 
bility of devising a “safer*’ 
cigarette. 

Dickens, while a most me- f- 
liculous research worker, was 
a gentle and modest man who 
was always ready to play his 
Full part in the wider develop- 
ment of biochemistry.

The siren-call of distant lands 
. : dominated the weekend's nan- 
sporting viewing — although 
land per se was all hut invisible 
to the hirsute crew involved in 
Voyage of the Sami ratiok (Sat- 
urday, Channel 4). This was a 
gripping account of a 6,000- 
mile trip from Bali to Mada-

camera, and a paperback copy 
of Robinson Crusoe to r em ind

nasty piece of ocean**, declared 
the expedition's, leader, feel- 
ingly, after yet another scary 
night spent bolding the flimsy 
craft together with palm-fibre 
rope and willrpower. 

The flute-haunted Fenland 
location of A Secret Place* 
which followed on the same 
channel, was altogether more 
reposeful, in a Wi lliam Boot 
kind of way — perky fox-cubs 
sniffing the cam era-ha anted 
air; ' half-timbered badgers 
nuzzling in their cyamlie-free 
set — until a randy fieldmonse 
began persuading fab prospec-

The partnership of Bill Alexander and Bill Dudley 
has been doing so well for the RSC that there are the 
highest hopes for their Midsummer Night ’s Dream 
which opens next week: interview by John Higgins 

Dreaming for everyone 


So far the combination of the 
director Bill Alexander and the 
designer Bill Dudley has hit gold in 
the RSCs Memorial Theatre at 
Stratford. First there was Richard 
III* which has just opened in 
Australia and will probably return 
to the Barbican in the autumn to 
boost a tourist-bereft theatre sea- 
son all too short of certainties. 
Then came The Merry Wives of 
Windsor ; less famous but probably 
the greater achievement for the 
director and designer because they 
took a flawed play and transferred 
it without a hitch to' the reign of 
Good King Harold Macmillan in 
the late Fifties. Step three is A 
Midsummer Night's Dream* and 
after tomorrow week it will be clear 
whether the Double Bill as the pan- 
have come to be known in the 
theatre business, have made it a 
triple gold. 

Alexander first suggested they 
should work together on Christmas 
Eve 1983. Before that they had just 
been nodding acquaintances dur- 
ing their joint time at the Royal 
Court. For Dudley it could not 
have come at a worse or — as it 
transpired — a better time. 

DUDLEY: I had had a summer 
and autumn going through all the 


aggro and pains of the Bayreuth 
Ring. Then there was Cinderella at 
the National, which was not exactly 
a success — although I still have 
some affection for my «iwign« It 
was one of those points in the 
cares- when I felt like packing the 
whole lot in. Bill proposed R icha rd 
and we immediately spent an 
evening discussing the three worst 
ways of doing it: you know, 
Orwell's England with eveyone 
dressed in Made. The rest 
is . ..you might say . . . history. 

History continues for Dudley 
when he designs the RSCs Richard 
II later in the autumn. But when 
the Double Bill began to talk about 
The Dream did they also outline 
the three worst possible app- 
roaches? 

ALEXANDER: That would have 
taken days, not an evening. 

DUDLEY: Maybe we've hit on 
one of them. 

Unlikely. Alexander’s first con- 
cept of “The wood near Athens" 
was of a children's playground, a 
space with ropes and tars. This 
could have been a little close to the 
Brook production, which is likely 
to linger in the memory of at least a 


part of the 1986 audience. Dudley 
took the playground idea, first 
thinking of the bomb-sites of his 
native Islington — the kind used to 
such effect m Hue and Cry — but 
then turned to the children's books 
our parents might have read. 

DUDLEY: The sets are influ- 
enced by the post-Rackham, post- 
Dalac period. In the Twenties and 
Thirties the best fairy-tales were 
beautifully and lavishly illustrated. 
The other influences, I suppose, are 
the world of faerie as seen by artists 
like Fuseli and Dadd anti, on a 
simpler level, those picture-books 
so fashionable at the moment of life 
in the hedgerows — such as are left 
— and ditches. It's all very English 
and has nothing to do with German 
witchcraft, werewolves and forests. 
Maybe it's a bit Peter Pan — I see 
Mnstaidseed and the other fairies 
as lost children who have strayed 
into the woods — and maybe it is a 
bit "If yon go down in tile woods 
today . . 

I want to draw the contrast 
between the formal, Hnwirai world 
of Athens, which stands for every- 
thing uncfaOdlike, and the play- 
ground where the mechanicals 
become a bit childish and the lovers 
a bit brattish.

Could the forests of the Bayreuth 
Ring have any influence? 

DUDLEY: Well, possibly the 
forest in Siegfried, which was after 
all Siegfried's romp-room. I'm 
rather fond of that set, although it 
was the one Wolfgang Wagner 
hated most, possibly tacabse it was 
the one with most scenery. 

This lime round Stratford has 
the same actress playing Titania 
and Hippolyta. but employs sepa- 
rate actors for Oberon and The- 


seus. Is this then Hippolyta’s 
Dream? 

ALEXANDER: It is everyone's 
Dream. Put I want to take a woman 
who is cool and rational when 
awake and the Queen of the Fairies 
in her sleep: with her go the two men 
in her life, one a ruler and the other 
the passionate and poetic Oberon 
The play is about a search Jbr 
completeness, a reconciliation of 
choice: it is a hymn to harmony. 


And the shadow of Peter Brook? 

ALEXANDER: Of course it's 
there and it's irritating. Sometimes 
I find' it difficult to understand how 
a production becomes that famous 
untill recall that it hit on the image 
of how society - and theatre — was 
moving at that particular moment 
in time. That's something which 
happens perhaps once every SO 
years. How would it look now? 


Almeida Festival 

Still evoking over-reactions 


Steve Reich 
Union Chapel/ 

Radio 3 

Steve Reich, 30 this year, is 
possibly slightly surprised that 
his music still produces such 
strong reactions from British 
audiences. This Saturday eve- 
ning concert in the Almeida 
Festival's “Reich weekend" 
was interrupted by shouts of 
“pretentious" and "bour- 
geois" and more monosyllabic 
comments during the tape 
work Come Out. Come out, 
noisily, is exactly what some 
in the audience did. 


Martin Cropper 

Rock 

Wham! 

Wembley Stadium 


It is four years to the month since the release of 
WbamTs fust single; .“Wham! Rap”, a 
celebration of the joyous aspects of being 
young and unemployed. Not a bad innings for 
George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley, now 
less carefree millionaires, who celebrated their 
retirement as a duo with a final concert in 
front of 80.000 fans at the end of an 
appropriately sun-blessed day. 

Although they clearly held the young, 
brightly-attired audience in the palms of their 
hands.' the show tended to be a rather long- 
winded. indulgent affair. Nearly ten minutes 
were taken up at the start with Michael and 
Ridgeley parading m their skimpy black 
outfits up and- down extended catwalks at 
either side of the huge stage. 

But, when they knuckled down to playing 
some of zheir brass-driven hits, singing and 
dancing at the centre of the stage with their im- 
maculately dressed band and backing singers 
behind them, they showed themselves capable 
of knocking out a sharp dance-song better than 
any of their "pop phenomenon” predecessors. 
“Bad Boys” was the first to get the crowd to 
their feet, and towards die end “Freedom" and 
“Young Guns" found the pair at their most 
confident and inspired besL - - 

The imbalance between the contributions of 
Ridgeley and Michael which lies at the heart 
of iheir'decision to quit, became increasingly 
evident as the show p rog res s e d. Ridgeley 
hardly ever sang, and when be took off on his 
many galloping runs along the catwalk, his 
guitar pushed to one side, there was nothing in 


It is hard to know what 
provoked this reaction, unless 
it was an understandable aver- 
sion to listening to loudspeak- 
ers rather - than five per-: 
formers. Come Out, now 20 
years old, is innocuous, 
enough. Tape loops of some- 
one saying “come out to show 
him" gradually separate, so 
that the sibilant of "show” is 
extended into a percussive 
rhythm that eventually over- 
whelms the words. If one is 
unsympathetic to the concept 
of a five-word phrase being 
repeated about a thousand 
times, there is little point in 
attending a Reich event 
anyway. 

Oddly. Music for a Large 
Ensemble, which carries the 
same processes to much more 


sophisticated ground, had 
bon well received. Perhaps 
that was because the perform- 
ers — a happy alliance of the 
New London Percussion En- 
semble, Circle and Singrirde 
— communicated so well their 
own enjoyment of this hyp- 
notic piece that works tiny but 
cumulatively significant 
changes on a thick, reedy 
astinato. A team of xylophon- 
ists keep up a jangling toccata, 
while four trumpeters (placed 
dramatically in the gallery) 
blaze- out rich major-sevenths 
at intervals. James Wood 
conducted, stooping to pound 
a vibraphone now and then. 

The other work was the 
. more recent Tehillim, setting 
psalm textsin Hebrew for four 
sopranos, often in close canon, 
while a string quintet and 
electronic organs mark out a 
■very slow harmonic basis. 
Percussionists, presumably 
with leathery hands, stand 
around clapping syncopated 
rhythms. The problem is that 
when he abandons minimalist 
techniques (as he hugely does 
here) Reich's inspiration 
seems a long way below, for 
example, Bernstein's in Chich- 
ester Psalms, while aiming; for 
much the same, sugary effects. 
Again, however, the perform- 
ers brought the piece to life by 
radiating enthusiasm and con- 
siderable expertise under 
Gregory Rose's direction.

Almeida Players/ 
Knussen 
Almeida Theatre 

On a stiffiiog evening it was 
difficult enough just listening 
to a long programme of pre- 
mieres. So those who had ' to 
perform it - a fine ad hoc 
group called the Almeida Fes- 
tival Players, directed unflag- - 
gjngly by Oliver Knussen and 
Sian Edwards — deserved 
medals; they must have per- 
spired pints. I hope the grate- 
ful composers restored the 
players' liquidity levels in the 
traditional manner. 

The listeners’ rewards were 
not always that tangible. But 
new Knussen pieces usually 
have something of interest, 
and in Music for the Saxon 
Shore (adapted from inciden- 
tal music for a David Rudkin 
play) it was the weird use of 
overlapping brass glissandi to 
evoke “werewolves at night by 
Hadrian's Wall". At least we 
now know where the wild 
things really are. 

After this pithy if sombre i 
beginning, Marcel Wengkx’s 
Sonare a tre seemed extended 
far beyond what its initially 
interesting material could sup- 
port However, it certainly 
made more of an impression 
than Peter Lieberson’s Feast 
Day* also receiving its British 
premiere. The title led one to 
expea something rather jollier 
from the Harvard music pro- 
fessor than this long, well- 
crafted but unprepossessing 
work for the four instruments 
provided. 

Henze’s Cherubino* a sur- 
prisingly unruffled piece of 
solo-piano lyricism with Mo- 
zart references surfacing more 
obviously as the music pro- 
gressed, was given a stylish 
first British performance by 
Suzanne Cheetham. Then fol- 
lowed the evening's high 
point: an excellently prepared 
account of the lush, exuberant 
Sonato for Two Pianos by the 
Edinburgh composer Geoffrey 
King At the keyboards were 
Richard Beauchamp and the 
1 5-year-old David Home, 
who showed musicianship far 
beyond bis years. 

Finally came the premiere 
of David Paul Graham's four- 
movemeni Symphony for 
harp, keyboards and percus- 
sion — the last word euphe- 
mistically standing for a 
terrifying arsenal of heavy 
metal filling the Almeida's 
performing arena entirely. 
This was not music for con- ' 
noisseurs of the delicate arts.

Young ganneis are growing in 
their nests on island cliffs, bat- 
some will die from a new 
hazard. The nests are usually 
made of seaweed, but gannets 
also pick up coloured nylon - 
threads from fishing nets, and 
weave it in with the other 
material. Subsequently it gets 
tangled round the legs of both 
nestlings and aduhs. In the 
Channel Islands, winter sorties 
have been made by helicopter to 
remove the tons of nylon on the 
ledges. 

Most duck are going into 
"eclipse", when the brightly, 
coloured males look more like 
the females. Drake shovder lose 
all their brilliant green, white 
and chestnut, and turn into a 
muddy purple; drake pintail lose 
their fine neck-pattern. They 
will all resume their distinctive 
plumage in the autumn. 

Giant hogweed is in some 
cases 10 foot high, and in recent 
years has often formed populous , 
colonies. These small forests are 
dangerous, since touching the 
plant in sunlight brings up 
blisters. The spires oC rose-bay 1 
willow herb are on the point of 
opening; orange hawkweed (or 
fox and cubs) was originally a - 
garden plant but is becoming a 
common wild flower in the 
north. Stoat families hum in 
packs and take many young 
rabbits. DJM

Britain faces reprisals for stand on sanctions 


Continued from page 1 
recognize how foolish it would 
be to drive them into the 
laager where dialogue would 
be impossible. 

“We are deliberately not 
going armed with a threat, a 
Big stick, a weapon of that 
kind because it is the judge- 
ment of the European Com- 
munity that the South African 
Government is not best calcu- 
lated to respond to that kind 
of approach.” 

In a thinly-veiled reference 
to sanctions he said: “We 
don't want to go down that 
road because it is our convic- 
tion that it will make change 
less likely. 

“1 am going to South Africa 
armed with the strongest 
weapon in the world — the 
overwhelming weight of com- 
monsense, the sense of moral 
justice, which the whole world 
feels - that apartheid must be 
brought to an end.” 


Sir Geoffrey, who is to visit 
South Africa in his new capac- 
ity as President of the Com- 
mon Market Foreign Min- 
ister. denied that Britain was 
“on the hook” over sanctions 
and said the Government was 
working with various world 
organizations to bring about 
concerted action for change. 

Sir Geoffrey said that his 
mission would provide “one 
further chance, an additional 
effort backed by the entire 
authority of the 12 members 
of the EEC to persuade the 
South African Government to 
go down die road which the 
Eminent Persons Group so 
much wanted them to do. . 

“They must recognize the 
extent to which opinion 
around die world is moving 
more and more solidly against 
them.” 

The Foreign Secretary said 
he could give the president of 
Zambia “an absolute assur- 


ance that the British Govern- 
ment, not a single one of us, is 
motivated by racialism. 

“We all share his deeply 
held sense of affront at the 
state of affairs in South Africa, 
we all share his passionate 
conviction to see that change, 
our differences are what is the 
best way to do iL” 

Although black leaders in 
South Africa have said they 
will refuse to see him. Sir 
Geoffrey said he believed that 
when they reflected on his 
mission they would “engage in 
discussion of the kind the 
whole world is asking for”. 

But speaking from the Zam- 
bian capital, which is the 
headquarters of South Africa's 
exiled African National Coun- 
cil (ANC), Mr Healey said the 
blacks- would not see Sir 
Geoffrey because they were 
deeply disappointed with the 
decisions of the EEC “And 
that goes for a lot of white 


people who are sympathetic 
with the anti-apartheid move- 
ment in South Africa.” 

The Howe mission was seen 
“as a delaying tactic to prevent 
Mrs Thatcher confronting 
reality”. 

He said that white business- 
men in South Africa with 
whom he had had private 
talks also regarded the Emi- 
nent Persons Group analysis 
“as absolutely correct — South 
Africa is sliding straight into a 
bloodbath of terrifying dimen- 
sions in which all their busi- 
ness interests will be lost 
unless pressure can be brought 
to bear on President Botha.” 

Speaking for the first time 
without the restrictions im- 
posed on reporting by the 
Botha Government's state of 
emergency, he said of his visit 
to South Africa: “The situa- 
tion is much more urgent than 
I feared. The Botha regime, by 
imprisoning all the effective 


leaders of the black majority 
in South Africa are making it 
inevitable there will be an 
increase in uncontrolled, un- 
directed violence in the town- 
ships.” 

Mr Healey this weekend 
held talks in Lusaka with Mr 
Oliver Tam bo, the ANC lead- 
er, who told him the so-called 
Frontline states, despite their 
calls for sanctions against 
South Africa by the West, 
were themselves so economi- 
cally dependent on South 
Africa that they would not ban 
trade with the Botha regime. 
• JOHANNESBURG: Sir 
Geoffrey's mission was the 
main front-page story at the 
weekend in both English and 
Afrikaans Sunday newspapers 
(Michael Hornsby writes). 

They all concurred that if it 
failed Mrs Thatcher would no 
longer be able to hold back 
what one paper called “a tidal 
wave of sanctions”. 


Contained from page i 
sweeping Westminster for sey* 
eraj weeks about the decline in 
Mr Tebbit's standing among 
MPs. Even members of the 
right wing 92 group, now the 
biggest backbench faction, 
have been talking of finding a 
suitable replacement for Mr 
Tebbit as the standard bearer 
for Thatcherism. 

They have not given up 
hope that he will regain his 
spark, but they want a clear 
sign from him that he believes 
he has the energy and will to 
go for the ultimate prize. 

Mr Baker’s dramatic surge 
forward comes after an im- 
pressive spell as Secretary of 
State for the Environment 
when he earned the respect 
and thanks of his Cabinet 
colleagues for defusing the 
rates timebomb, a success 
which prompted Mrs Thatch- 
er to promote him to the 
electoral !y crucial post of Sec- 
retary of State for Education 
and Science in May. 

Mr Baker attracted 35 per 
cent support from backbench- 
ers stating whom they would 
support in a contest taking 
place after the general elec- 
tion. Mr Tebbit on 16 percent 
■was second, with Mr Walker 
on 9 per cent and Mr Douglas 
Hurd. Mr Michael Heseliine, 
Sir Geoffrey Howe and Mr 
Kenneth Clarke, all on 7 per 
cent. Mr John Moore, seen by 
some as a long term right wing 
candidate, won 5 per cenL 
Other names receiving a single 
vote were Mr John Biffen, Mr 
John Wakebam, the chief 
whip, and Mr Cecil Parkinson, 

It is dear that Sir Geoffrey's 
and Mr Walker's best hopes of 
ever assuming leadership of 
the party depend on an early 
contest 

When MPs were asked 
whom their preferrred candi- 
dates would be in a sudden, 
unforeseen contest Sir Geof- 
frey won with 21 per cent Mr 
Walker was second with 18 
per cent Mr Tebbit third with 
16 per cent Mr Baker fourth 
on 15 percent with Mr Hurd 
on 13 per cent and Mr 
Heseliine on 7 per cent 

A notable feature of the' 
survey is that Mr Heseliine 
does not appear to have 
benefited from his resignation 
from the Cabinet

FINANCE AND INDUSTRY 


(US NOTEBOOK") 

Fed policy 
unsettles 
^morale in 
bond trade 

From Maxwell Newton 
New York 

The tone of tbe financial 
markets has improved, no 
thanks to the Federal Reserve 
Board, which has maintained 
a restrictive money policy. 

Its policy involves a level of 
federal foods of jost nnder 7 
per cent and a slow rate of 
growth of the adjusted mone- 
tary base (tbe smn of currency 
and reserve accounts of finan- 
cial institutions at federal 
. reserve banks) — the monetary 
f^mdatsoa of tbe whole 
system. 

In tbe year to last AprO. the 
adjusted monetary base rase 
from $222 billion (£147 bil- 
lion) to $240 billion, a rate of 
increase of 8 per cent Since 
tbe middle of April, the adjust- 
ed monetary base has risen 
from $240 million to $243 
million... 

This tight poBcy by tbe 
Federal . Reserve reflects an 
agreement that tbe United 
States would not reduce inter- 
est rates between the middle of 
April and tbe Japanese elec- 
tions next Sunday. 
t • iT ft has had tbe additional 
eflert of arresting the decline 
of the dollar- Thus, between 
tbe week, of April 18 and the 
week of Jtme 20, the Commod- 
ity Research Boreas index of 
interest rates has fallen from 
102 tn99& ’ 

The CRB: currency index 
has fallen from a peak of 105 
(on May ^immediately after 
the Tokyo summit) to 104. 
Hence; . sure the Tokyo sum- 
mit, the deUac has increased 
slightly m-vahe against tbe 
main currencies uf the Organi- 
zation for Economic Co-opera- 
tion and Development, 
id Against, the yen, the 
strengthening of the dollar has 
been mere msteL September 
yen fhtnres peaked at 62$ 
(160) on May 9 — since then, 
they have britenlD 60.54 (1 65). 

- So the -Federal Reserve has 
done the Japanese a big favour 
because the effects of the tight 
Federal Reserve policy since 
April have been, to demoralize 
the bond ’mazier and spread 
coaftswB and uncertainty 
widely throughout the Ameri- 
can financial community.- 
Nevertbdeb: interest rates 
have recommenced their long 
fall. ; r 
On Jne 5, the price of Ur 
7V4 2016 US bond was $9222, 
tO a yield 7.89 per cent. The 
price of this baud has risen to 
1$ 16/32, to yield 7.28 per 
cent This sharp drop in yields 
reflected frets snch as: 

• Durable goods orders in tbe 
first five months of this year 
averaged $105$ billion a 
month, which was exactly the 
same as the average for the 
last four mouths of last year. 

• Non-defence capital goods 
orders averaged S263 billion a 
month in the first five months 
of this year, compared with. 
$282 billion in the last four 
months of last year. 

• Persona! income in tbe first 
five mouths of this year had an 
average monthly growth rate 
of 0.44 per cent, which was 
about half tbe average growth 
rate recorded is last year, 
compared with 1984. 

• Tbe trade deficit last month 
was $1421 billion, which was 
.'jpee tbe average of $13$ 
bidion recorded in the first 
four months of this year, and 
15 per cent greater than the 
average monthly deficit of 
$1227 biflnm recorded last 
year. 


Oil prices poised to rise as 
Opec signals new quotas 


From 

Oil prices ait expected to 
start rising slowly today, 
when the markets open, in the 
wake of an apparent willing- 
ness by the Organization of 
Petroleum Exporting Coun- 
tries to accept new output 
quotas and to aim for a steady 
increase in prices towards the 
$20 a barrel marie. 

The new agreement, still 
being finalized during an in- 
tensive but good humoured 
meetings between the 13 
members of the oil producers* 
cartel on the Yugoslavian 
island of Brioni, is a triumph 
for the Nigerian oil minister, 
Mr Rilwanu Lukroan. 

He took over the Opec 
presidency last Wednesday 
after a year in which indeci- 
sion and prevarication, more 
than solidarity, characterized 
the series of meetings held. 

While Iran, Libya and Alge- 
ria have been opposed to 
much that the new president 
has suggested they have been 
persuaded to modify their 
hard line to support Opec and 
not to vote against any sped fie 
proposal. 


David Young, Brioni, Yugoslavia 


While Opec has not been 
able to say that every point it 
agreed on in Yugoslavia has 
been readied unanimously, at 
least it has been able to avoid 
declaring a public spirt. 

The new individual quotas 
readied by the members, in- 
cluding Sheikh Ahmed Zaki 
Yamani of Saudi Arabia, but 
expected to be officially an- 
nounced -today, were worked 
out with Dr Subroto. the 
former Opec president and the 
oil minister of Indonesia. 

There are still areas of 
agreement that have to be 
reached but it is widely accept- 
ed within Opec that a daily 
average production rate of 
about . 1 7.7 million barrels a 
day can be sustained while stiD 
keeping upward pressure on 
world prices. 

Mr Uikman said: “Opec as 
a whole has an agreement that 
individual countries think is a 
matter for them, but we have 
reached an agreement 

Mexico. Angola. Malaysia, 
Egypt, Oman, Brunei and 
Norway have said that they 
are prepared to co-operate 


with Opec. with only Britain

Mr Lukman said; “Britain 
must realize that it is in tbe 
same boat as Opec. It needs 
high prices and it is reasonable 
for Opec to expea some form 
of co-operation.'* 

The acceptance ofOpecasa 
target price for its oil of under 
rather than above $20 a barrel 
has partly been due to the 
refusal by Britain to change its 
policy of leaving output from 
the British sector, now run- 
ning at 2.7 million barrels a 
day. in the hands of the 
operating oil companies.

starts up 

By Our City Staff 

The first new company 
involving a joint venture be- 
tween the private sector and 
London Regional Transport, 
the body responsible for run- 
ning London's underground 
railway, starts trading today. 

Data Networks, a computer 
services company, is jointly 
owned by LRT and Du port, a 
private company which is part 
of Williams Holdings. 

It starts life as a profitable 
operation with a turnover of 
£10 million. 

There is talk of bringing the 
company to the stock market 
some time in the future. 

It is too early to say whether 
LRT itself will be sold to 
private investors but it is 
expected that tbe Government 
!1 bring the semi-private 
body to the stock marker-in 
the long term. 

The move is in tine with the 
Government's intention of in- 
jecting private money into 
LRT. the body set up to take 
control of tbe capital's under- 
ground away from tbe now 
defunct Greater London 
Couna'l. 

Further joint ventures are in 
the pipeline. LRT already has 
private contractors running 
some of its bus services. 

LRTs own civil engineering 
arm has to compete with 
outside contractors for its 
work.

• to accept the Dixons Group's 
[ £1.8 billion hostile bid. 

Dixons said yesterday that 
it now bad acceptances for 
more than 20 per cent of the 
Woolworth shares but would 
not comment on Mercury 
Warburg Investment 
Management's decision to 
pledge its 13 .5 per cent stake 
to Dixons. 

Dixons’ merchant bank. SG 
Warburg, said that it had 
acceptances for 13.4 per cent 
of the Woolworth shares, a 
figure which might include 
some MWIM holdings but 
which also took in other 
institutional shareholders. 
Those, acceptances* with the- 
5.2 per cent Dixons bought in 
tbe market, 1.8 per cent of 
written acceptances and fiir- 
| ther pledges over the weekend 
bring the Dixons total to more 
than 20 per cent. 

Woolworth. on the other 
hand, has been promised sup- 
port by Robert Fleming, the 


11.2 per cent stake. 

The other large institutional 
shareholders, the Prudential 
Corporation with 8 per cent, 
the Merchant Navy Pension 
Fund with 4.6 per cent, and 
Charterhouse Japhet with 
per cent, will be cnirial m 
deriding the bid's fate. But 
they have kept quiet about 
their intentions so far. 

Mr Geoffrey Mulcahy, chief 
executive of Woolworth, said: 
“Scaremongering stories put 
out by Dixons about the effect 
of failure of their bid on the 
Woolworth share price are ill- 
founded. On the basis of the 
FT stores index p/e. Wool- 
worth rates a share price of 
over 740p even on reported 
earnings of 37.7p for 1985-6. 
This takes no account of a 30 
per cent rise forecast in pretax 
profits next year." 

The company believes insti- 
tutions will prefer to keep 
their choices open by not 
backing a merger. 

Dixons Group replied, 
through Mr Stanley Kalms. its 
chairman: “The outcome of 
the bid will be determined by 
retailing and financial logic 
not by loyalty. 


The success of Data Net- 
works and other joint ventures 
will determine how soon 
LRTs privatization will come 
into being. 

A spokesman for tbe De- 
partment of Transport, which 
is ultimately responsible for 
LRT, said: “The setting up of 
Data Networks and its possi- 
ble flotation does not in itself 
indicate a speedy move to the 
privatization of LRT." 

London Regional Transport 
is already semi privatized into 
three companies which run all 
its operations. But a move to 
float it on the Stock Exchange 
would need new legislation.

This was confirmed yester- 
day by British Airways but it 
added that nodetailed propos- 
als had been made. 


GATT committee charged 
with defining tbe detailed 
aims and subject matter of a 
new round of multilateral 
trade negotiations. 

The committee has until 
raidJuly to produce a declara- 
tion for endorsement by trade 
ministers meeting at Ptraia del 
Este, Uruguay on September 
15, so that the new round can 
get underway next year. 

The difficulties that con 
fronted the Gait annual ses- 
sion last November remain 
unresolved: Brazil, India and 
right other developing coun- 
tries oppose moving into a 
new round that includes ser- 
vices and has not been preced- 
ed by a firm commitment 
from the United Stales, the 
European Economic Commu- 
nity and Japan on action to 
slop protectionism. 

Mr Nogueira Battista of 
Brazil speaking for tbe 10 
who have put forward then- 
concept of what the ministeri- 
al declaration should be, said: 
For us tbe central problem 


tern as embodied in Gatt now 
feces is the question of its 
preservation." 

If adequate answers could 
be given at Pnma del Este to 
standstill (no further restric- 
tions not permitted in Gatt), 
rollback (phasing out existing 
restrictions) and safeguard 
(emergency protection of in- 
dustries threatened by imports 
- permitted in Gatt, misused 
in practice) “this would be the 
most tremendous success in 
Gatt's history”. 

In seeking a prior commit- 
ment on these issues, the ten 
hope to prevent this being 
bargained at Pnnta del Este 
against' any concession from 
them on services, which are a 
non-GATT issue as far as they 
are concerned.

ing out services would be 
unacceptable to the United 
Slates. It and the other two 
major trading blocks have

US faces 
pressure 
over rates 

From Bailey Morris 
Washington 

The US Federal Reserve 
Board, faced with a sharp 
slowdown in economic 
growth, is under strong pres- 
sure to lower interest rates to 
avert a possible recession. 

But officials meeting at a 
high level conference in Zu- 
rich have given warning that 
growing policy differences 
among the industrialized na- 
tions made it increasingly less 
likely that there would be 
another coordinated drive to 
lower rates. 

Reagan Administration of- 
ficials repeated their call yes- 
terday for a new round of 
international rate cuts as evi- 
dent showed that the global 
economy is dangerously 
sluggish. 

Leading Wall Street ana- 
lysts. citing the new figures for 
the rise in the US trade deficit 
last month, predicted that a 
rate cut could come early next 
month. 

Much will depend on the 
release of American employ- 
ment figures, due on Thurs- 
day. Analysts expect them to 
reflect the weakness in the 
manufacturing sector. 

Mr Alan Greenspan, a not- 
ed US economist attending 
the Zurich conference, said 
that US growth is a weak 1.5 
per cent, in addition, a recent 
slowdown in Japan and grow- 
ing problems with third world 
debts raised the strong possi- 
bility of another recession 
within the next year, officials 
said. 

WaJl Street analysts said the 
economic data will force the 
Federal Reserve Board to 
lower interest rales, possibly 
in coordination with foe Bank 
of Japan soon after the Japa- 
nese election next Sunday. 

But finance officials from 
West Germany and Japan said 
at the Zurich conference that 
they are reluctant to join in 
another international round of 
cuts to stimulate growth. 

Herr Wolfgang Roth, a 
member of foe West Germany 
Bundestag, said that at present 
there is no agreement on 
policy that would lead to 
coordinated actions by the 
industrialized nations to stim- 
ulate growth. 

Indeed. Mr C Fred 
Beigsion. director of The In- 
stitute of International Eco- 
nomics. said that the much 
vaulted “plaza accord” that 
led to a devaluation of foe 
dollar beginning last Septem- 
ber 22 was “now a failure.” 


Executive Editor Kenneth Fleet 


A dance to the music 
of economic time 


Anyone who concludes a series of 
columns after a number of years (well 
two and a half, to be precise) must feel 
a need to say thank you. You have 
generously put up with my enthu- 
siasms for the European Monetary 
System, output measures for public 
spending, labour market tax reforms 
and so forth. One is, after all paid for 
one's opinions and not for one's 
doubts. But I have tried not to shove 
them down your throat I confess: 
what I have been trying to do in this 
column is act as a conduit for thought 
channelling to you the views both of 
those who would rather not let them 
be known, and of those who have 
plenty to say but difficulty in m aking 
their thoughts human-readable. 

Both are fun to tap, but require 
different detective skills. Officialdom 
is acutely aware of the policy implica- 
tions of their discussions, and the 
game is to tease these out in advance 
of public and political decisions. 
Academics, on the other hand, live at 
the frontiers of theoretical knowledge, 
but there is gold in them thar bills. 
Fundamental relationships in the 
economy may be changing. 
Economists* models allow those 
relationships to be tested in the only 
way available to a science which is not 
permitted laboratory experiments. 


to realize the lead role now played by 
capital movements. Those arguing on 
the US-Japan see-saw still do not 
seem fully aware of their relative 
weight. But the most important and 
ill-digested change of all is that growth 
in the industrial economy no longer 
necessarily provides jobs. 

In Britain, this has been mightily 
confused by the smelliest red herring 
of the past two and a half years: the 
notion that we have a choice, for the 
future of our economy, between 
''manufacturing” and “services." Tbe 
advocates of manufacturing hold that 
it is labour-intensive and thus the 
answer to our unemployment prob- 
lem: tbe advocates of services that 
they are the sector of the economy that 
will naturally expand in a post- 
industrial society. 

The truth is that we desperately 
need a manufacturing future, but that 
in order to have one we must accept it 
is not going to provide many jobs. A 
variation of this is that the distinc- 
tions between manufacturing and 
services are breaking down faster than 
the statisticians can make them, but 
that a lot of traditional manufacturing 
is going to go the way of agriculture. 
That is, we can only remain compet- 
itive by shedding labour and raising 


output persistently, perhaps until the 
Over tbe past two and a half years, sector employs only a few per cent of

worse — been unusually steady m 
most major economies. Perhaps be- 
cause this has offered fewer distrac- 
tions, it has been possible to see how 
some fundamental economic relation- 
ships have changed. 

Another confession: the neatest 
summary of these I have read came 
not from an economist but from a 
professor of management, Peter 
Drucker of the Claremont Graduate 
School in California. In his view, 
some basic connections have been 
severed. The primary products econ- 
omy in which food, raw materials and 
energy are produced — has become 
“uncoupled” from the industrial 
economy. Trade and capital flows 
have almost become detached from 
each other, and the latter clearly 
dominate. And in the industrial 
economy that concerns most of us 
most, production and employment 
have also become “uncoupled”. 

These changes have crept up on us, 
so that they have not been properly 
absorbed into policy-making. The 
persistent weakness of prices for 
primary products, which began in the 
late 1970s, explains the perpetuation 
of the international debt crisis. It is 
not just cyclical. Although there is still 
some bounce in commodities that 
swing from glut to scarcity easily (I am 
naturally delighted to note a new hog 
cycle in the United States) there has 
been a permanent change in demand 
for industrial raw materials, because 
new technology industries require less 
per dollar of added value. Hence 
Professor Dmcker’s “uncoupling”: 
the industrial world can expand while 
the primary producers are stuck in 
glut and slump. 

Likewise, those concerned with 
exchange rate management took time 


There is another way in which the 
agriculture parallel is instructive. In 
contracting employment, agriculture 
has simultaneously spun off a wide 
variety of specialist sub-contractors. 
Old-style manufacturing is going the 
same way. These new businesses, 
mostly classed as services, have much 
in common with “information-based” 
manufacturing springing up at the 
same time. These changes are only 
slowly being understood, but their 
implications for employment must be 
the most important issue of the next 
quarter-decade. They suggest . that 
future jobs will fall in one of three 
categories. Either they will be for the 
highly skilled, in a manufacturing 
sector where output can and must rise . 
fast, but only if productivity rises 
faster still. There will also be highly- 
skilled jobs" in a parallel sector of 
technical services and small-scale 
specialist manufacture, which is a 
fertile source of growth in both 
income and jobs. And there will be 
jobs in the retail, distribution and 
persona! service sectors providing for 
a society whose affluence should 
steadily be increasing. 

The important point to note about 
this area of employment — services as 
they are traditionally seen — is that a 
large and increasing proportion of 
these jobs will be part time. And we 
have not begun to rationalize our tax, 
social security and employment laws 
to fit this pattern of employment to 
those who are, and still will be, 
looking for jobs. But that takes me 
back to a hobby-horse — on which, 
with repeated thanks, I will jog off to 
“another place.”

If Government spending 
were cut by 29 per cent m 
money terms over tbe next 
decade and asset sales contin- 
ued at the present record level 
indifimtely, Britain could be- 
come a tax haven with income 
tax at 10 per cent by tbe aid of 
1996. the Institute of Directors 
calculates. 

This would be a better route 
to tax reform than changing 
tbe tax system by widening the 
base in order to art rates, tbe 
loD says. In a new paper 
called “The Direction or Tax 
Reform: Controlling the nrge 
to change system,” the Insti- 
tute rejects reforms of foe kind 
recently agreed by tbe US 
Senate or a switch from In- 
come to expenditure taxes. 

The programme entaBs cuts 
of £8.5 billion or 5.9 per cent in 
public spending in 1987-88, 
further cuts of £8-5 billion a 
year in tbe next two years and 
Smaller cats thereafter, accu- 
mulating to £49-5 billion a 
year by the end of the period. 


“This should be well within 
the reach of an economising 
government.” the loD says. If 
this were done, income tax, 
VAT and corporation tax rates 
could all be cut to 10 per cent 
and capital taxes and stamp 
duty could be abolished. But 
the calculations do not allow 
for increases in income tax 
allowances in tine with 

inflation. 

The loD does not rereal how 
it would cot spending hot says 
that the ultimate reduction of 
£493 billion a year is about 
twice the cots proposed by the 
loD in the budget of the 
Department of Health and 
Social Security in an earlier 
paper. 

Tbe calculations assume no 
change ia the economy. “But 
in so frr as the Government is 
usable or nn willing to make 
these economies, and the 
shortfall is made good by 
economic growth, the scope for 
tax cuts is the same.” 

The loD rejects the idea of 

‘i 


moving to a balanced Budget. 
“Whereas inflation should 
eventually be kept at zero or 
less, the same does not apply 
to the Budget deficit.” This 
should normally be positive 
and significantly large, though 
well within the bounds of 
financial prudence, the loD 
says. It also rejects American 
supply-side arguments for rat- 
ting taxation. 

“Radical reductions in govr 
eminent expenditure, notably 
on health, education, 
and other forms 
security provision, should 
eventually make possible re- 
dactions in taxation so large as 
to make an Ideal system 
attainable,” it argues. 

Sir John Hoskyns, the 
IoD's director-general, con- 
riades “In a world business 
environment. Britain cannot 
afford tax levels way above the 
competition. It is time to set 
radical long-term tax targets 
and stick to them.”

New financial groups face 
an overseas onslaught 


In the battle for survival 
and domination of the global 
financial markets of tomor- 
row the new financial con- 
glomerates in Britain have 
some considerable 
disadvantages. 

Compared with their inter- 
national competitors, they 
are relatively smalL They 
must also learn to play a new 
game called investment 
tanking. But they are still 
choosing their teams and they 
do not yet know what the 
rules will be on their home 
playing field, the City of 
London, where they need to 
be among the strongest play-, 
ers to have any chance of 
“making it” overseas. 

The new British financial 
conglomerates are all busily 
preparing for the big bang. To 
create a fully-fledged invest- 
ment bank, the new City 
groupings must weld together 
their corporate finance de- 
partments with the capital 
markets people to create a 
single product range based on 
corporate advice, and the 
offering of equity and fixed 
interest securities. 

They must integrate the 
functions of the stockbroker 
for successful marketing and 
distribution. They need to 
turn jobbers into market- 
makers to execute the deal. In 
addition, a new breed of 
investment banker is likely to 
emerge who will sell the 
entire range of the invest- 
ment bank's products to the 
client 

Many of these embryonic 
investment banks will have 
“people" problems. For ex- 
ample, the corporate finan ce 
departments of some of the 
British merchant banks rest 
on the pulling power of a 
small number of highly suc- 
cessful “prima donnas," who 
will have considerable diffi- 
culty in accepting that their 
skills are just one of the 
products bong offered by the 
investment banking business. 

Another example of the 
potential for conflict arises 
where a stockbroker merges 
with a merchant bank and 
both have corporate finance 
departments, rack headed by 
able individuals, neither 
whom is likely to want to 
work for the other. 

The two teams cannot be 
run separately side by side for 
long. No bank can. afford to 
take the risk of competing 
with its other in-house corpo- 
rate finance team for a client. 

No-one~can predict the 
future success of any of the 
new groupings in the global 
markets of tomorrow, but 
what can be said with certain- 
ty is that they will all be 
competing with each other

Raising money in new ways 


The importance of the inte- 
grated investment bank has 
grown as financial markets 
have become more 
sophisticated. 

Corporate borrowers, the 
big ssers of capital, are steadi- 
ly widening the range of 
financial instruments they are 
prepared to use, and they look 
to their investment banks to 
tailor the source of capital to 

m»lrh their 

For short-term flexibility 
then wifl always he a role for 
the conventional overdraft 
But . traditional commensal 
lending is grad sally being 
squeezed out In favour of more 
imaginative ways of raising 
money. 

The suppliers of capital 
have also become more de- 
manding. The growth in pen- 

for market share, not just in 
London but in New York and 
Tokyo. 

All of this takes money — 
not just to create the integrat- 
ed operation and cope with 
the changing market-place in 
London but to expand over- 
seas. 

When it comes to money 
the Americans and the Japa- 
nese have a head start The 
British merchant banks are 
dwarfed by the biggest Amer- 
ican investment banks and 
Japanese brokerage houses. 
In terms of profit before tax. 
Morgan Grenfell, Kleinwort 
Benson and Mercury Interna- 
tional-are barely a tenth of the 
size of the major US and 
Japanese bouses. 

The overseas houses have 
their global ambitions, too. 
As well as invading each 
other's markets, they are 


sion funds, and managed fimds 
generally, means that there is 
a steady demand for tradeable 
securities. Increasing afflu- 
ence and greater awareness 
has also made the private 
investor less satisfied to put 
his money on deposit for a safe 
fixed rate of interest 

The Investment bank brings 
together the nsers of capital 
and foe sources of capitaL 
Unlike the commercial bank, 
which traditionally takes de- 
posits and offers loans, foe 
investment bank will more 
usually raise money for his 
client by offering foe client’s 
securities which are tradeable 
on one or other of the world's 
markets. 

To do this successfully the 
investment bank needs three 
key attributes, origination, 

intent on expanding their 
offices in London. 

The truly integrated invest- 
ment banks are by and laige 
the American houses, which 
have been absorbing foe new 
culture of negotiated rates of 
commission since their “May 
Day" of 1975, the American 
equivalent of the City's big 
bang. The concentration in 
size of the US houses has 
been going on for more than 
10 years, and foe seven 
biggest are shown in the table. 

The Americans have a 
head start in that they are 
already steeped in foe invest- 
ment banking culture and 
bave tremendous financial 
strengths. They may still be 
choosing their teams but, 
unlike their London counter- 
parts. they have learned how 
to play, and they have many 
•years of experience. 



distribution and trading. Orig- 
ination may be loosely defined 
as ways of solving foe client's 
financial problems or achiev- 
ing bis ambitions.This may 
mean acquiring another com- , 
pany, giving any type of ! 
corporate advice or raising , 
money, either fixed interest or 
equity capitaL 

Distribution, or marketing, 
consists of distributing foe 
resulting securities using the 
relationships built np juriong 
foe sources of capital wbfveby 
the securities can be disposed 
of efficiently. 

Trading is simply the ability 
to do foe deal, comply with the 
regulations and complete the 
documentation. In a takeover 
bid it involves advising the 
client at all stages of foe bid 
and doing everything possible 
to ensure that it is successful. 

The Japanese are experi- 
enced in penetrating overseas 
markets. They tackled the 
motor vehicle market slowly 
and patiently, spending mon- 
ey on marketing, develop' ^g 
a reputation for reliability 
and sustaining losses until 
gradually they built up mar- 
ket share. 

In foe face of foe impend- 
ing onslaught on what has 
been until now a closed shop, 
the British conglomerates' 
strongest defence will be the 
established relationships. 
The seekers of capital will 
find it easiest to deal with the 
people they know besL while 
foe supplier of capital will feel 
safer with foe names he 
recognises. 

But the threat from over- 
seas is a real one and should 
not be underestimated.

THE TIMES MONDAY JUNE 30 1986 


Butchers put on the glamour overalls 


FINANCE AND INDUSTRY 


GILT-EDGED 


The meat industry is generally 
one of the least well-regarded- 
sectors in the market but 
nestling on the USM are two 
catering trade butchers. 
Meadow Farm Produce and 
Sims Catering, which com- 
mand ratings more generally 
associated with glamour sec- 
tore. 


USM REVIEW 


The meat market is iu 
decline as household con- 
sumption falls, reflecting the 
availability of a growing range 
of prepared foods and an 
increasing concern with 
healthy earing. 


Within the total market, 
however, several areas have 
shown considerable buoyance, 
in particular, a shift from red 
to white meat and a sharp 
increase in sales of prepared 
and convenience meat 


Meadow Farm Produce 
originally developed out of 
servicing catering needs of the 
the leading pub chains and 
now supplies more than 600 
pubs, hotels and restaurants. 
Expenditure on food eaten 
outside the home is growing 
and this side of the business 
should continue to develop

Bntish Rail benefits from 
Plessey ISDX network 


A iu^Hedmubgy coBummica- 
tions netwodt - one of the most 
advanced in Britan - has now 
come into service for British 
Raift Network Southeast 

British Rail chose Plessey to 
plan, supply and install it - to 
provide all the benefits of 
DFNSS (the new digital private 
network signalling system). 

These include centralised 
operation of five centres from 
one location, the cost-savings 
from telephone calls made 
through a private network, and 
ability to handle text and 
computer data as well as voice. 


HVE EXCHANGES 

The network comprises five 
interlinked Plessey ISDX 
digital electronic telephone 
exchanges, for a contract 
valued at more than £750,000. 

The exchanges are located 
at Paddock Wood, Tonbridge, 
Hastings, Ashford and 
Chatham. All are already in 
service,' excepting Chatham, 
which wiD be linked into the 
network later in the year 
Plessey is the first manufac- 
turer to deliver DPNSS capabi- 
lity to British Rafl,eoaWir® it to 
enjoy the fufl benefits of digital 
cranmunications. 

The Plessey ISDX family of 
business exchanges, hunched 
in 1985. has already established 
itseif as market leader in the UK.

MERLIN DX FOR 
SCOTTISH OFFICE 


A massive network of British 
Telecom Merlin DX private 


ri gnwi and manufactured by 
Plessey, is to be installed in the 
giaut Scottish Office uetmuk in 


The £3 million contract is 


network fines and more than 
4,000 internal extensions. 

The Houses of Parliament 
and a large portion of the 
Whitehall network were 
equipped with Merlin DX 
exchanges at the end of 1985. 


The bulky and expensive coofing 
equipment assodafed with the 
deieitiou of infra-red is now do 
longer required, following the 
rntroduction by Plessey of a 
family of advanced uncooled 
pyroelectric mfia-red detectors. 

-Their applications include 
surveillance, energy manage- 
ment, process control, intruder 
detection and thermal imaging. 


40 ELEMENTS 


Available in linear arrays of up 
to 40 elements, the detectors 
are designed to meet a wide 
rangeofmfra-red sensing appli- 
cations where robustness, 
-small size, ambient tempera- 
ture operation and low cost are 
essential requirements. Single 
element detectors are also 
available. 

The arrays are packaged in a 
ceramic chip carrier which is 
bonded to a specially designed 
acoustic decoupler to minimise 
the effect of mechanical and 
ajibome vibration.

In his Whlchman inaugura- 
tion speech, Mr Kwame Pepra, 
Ghaoaik Secretary responsible 
fortansportand Cononunica- 
tions, attached great impor- 
tance to die contribution that 
Whichman is making to the 
development and safety of air 
transport in Ghana. 


In the last two years the 
group has moved into the 
retail market, supplying lead- 
ing food retailers. Volume in 
this market is growing rapidly 
and was one of the main 
sources of the 70 per cent 
increase in pretax profits to 
£2.4 million for the year to 
March 1 9S6 which have been 
just announced. 

The publication of the re- 
sults coincided with the an- 
nouncement of a rwo-for-five 
rights issue at 200p to raise 
£11.2 million, of which £4.6 
million will be spent on the 
acquisition of North Devon 
Meat. This should boost sig- 
nificantly the scope of Mead- 
ow Farm's business and i 
profits in the current year . 
should advance to around 1 
£3.5 million. 

The prospects of strong 
growth make the shares attrac- 
tive despite the high rating. 
Shareholders should take up 
their rights. 

Sims Catering is based in 
the South of England and 
supplies a broad range of 
customers in the hotel and 
restaurant trade, and educa- 
tional and health institutions. 
The group has been able to 
achieve very attractive mar- 
gins (unusual tn the meat 
trade) based on the skill and 
ability of the company's 
butchers to make the most 
effective use of a carcass. 

In its first year as a public 
company, pretax profits for 
the group advanced to 
£586,000 (£405.000) and the 
company made two acquisi- 
tions with the takeover of 
Bristol Meat Trader and more 
recently WD Brabin. These 
moves have enabled Sims to 
cover the country from the 
South to Carlisle with the 
exception of East Anglia and 
London. 

The integration of the two 
acquisitions within the group 
should allow Sims to achieve 
higher volumes and higher 
margins from these businesses 
and their first foil contribu- 
tion to profits in the current 
year should ensure strong 
further growth. 

Henderson Crosthwaile, the 
company's broker, is estimat- 
ing pretax profits of £800.000 
which gives eamings per share 
of 13.9p. At !63p the shares 
are on a prospective rating of 
1 1.7 times. This is good value 
given the company's excellent 
record and strong 
management

German stoicism puts a 
constraint on UK rates 


The gilts market has been 
strangely becalmed in the last 
few weeks, despite the gener- 
ally buoyant tone of the US 
treasuries market. In fact, 
most of the European bond 
markets have underperfor- 
med US bonds in ihe Ameri- 
can rally, and yield 
differences, based on historic 
comparisons, are now begin- 
ning to look favourable for 
European securities at most 
maturities. 

Clearly, however, the Euro- 
pean bond markets are scepti- 
cal about the scope for any 
early reduction in short-term 
official interest rates, while 
the Americans have become 
convinced that there will be a 
discount rate eul on their side 
of the Atlantic within the 
next few weeks. 

Given the relatively 
favourable background for 
rates from across the Atlan- 
tic. it is becoming increasing- 
ly difficult to condone the 
reluctance of Continental Eu- 
ropean central banks to re- 
duce their real interest rates. 

The figures show how real 
short-term interest rates have 
moved in the leading econo- 
mies since 1980. 

In the immediate after- 
math of the oil price reduc- 
tion in January, all of ihe 
leading five economies found 
themselves saddled with real 
rates of interest which were 
higher than at any time since 
1980. 

With inflation rapidly tum- 
bling, and prospects for eco- 
nomic growth in the near- 
term anything but secure, the 
United Slates and Japan 
reacted fairly quickly to re- 
duce their nominal interest 
rates, so real interest rales 
were engineered downwards 
The same was also true in 
Britain, where nominal rates 
were substantially reduced 
after their emergency jump at 
ihe beginning of the year. (As 
the graph shows. British real 
rates calculated on a forward 
looking basts are now 3 per 
cent below the emergency 
peak attained a few months 
back.) But the country which 
stands out for its lack of 
progress in cutting both nom-

There is no doubt that the

ences on Ihe Bank of 
England's interest rate policy. 

The subsidence in British 
short-rales since the end of 
January has already eroded 
the interest rate spread in 
favour of sterling assets and, 
compared boih with West 
Germany and the world aver- 
age, the interest differential is 
already (ess than it has been 
on average since the begin- 
ning of last year. 

Given the uncertainties 
which at present surround 
British inflation and the bal- 
ance of payments, it seems 
probable that a short-term 
interest rate differential of 
about 5 per cent relative to 
the German level may well 
need to be maintained 

This means that British 
rates will fall significantly 
only if a similar process 
occurs in Germany. 

So when will Germany 
move? Until now, the 
Bundesbank has felt con- 
strained by the weakness of 
the mark against the franc in 
the EMS, and the rapid rates 
of monetary expansion inside 
Germany itself. 

But to be weighed against 
these factors are the dangers 
of Germany sliding into a 
process of cumulative defla- 
tion. as individuals and com- 


panies continue to postpone 
expenditure derisions be- 
cause of high interest rates 
and declining prices. 

Furthermore, if the US cuts 
its discount rate in the sum- . 
mer without any correspond- 
ing action from the 1 
Bundesbank, (here may well I 
be a further weakening in the , 
dollar which would certainly , 
not be welcome to the Ger- j 
man government at present I 

Given this, it is reasonable 
to suppose that the German 
central bank will eventually 
be persuaded to ease its 
monetary stranglehold on the 
economy, and that mark 
short-rates will drop by be- 
tween % per cent and 1 per 
cent in the remainder of this 
year. If this occurs, then a 
similar process could happen 
in Britain, and gilts could 
participate in a period during 
which European bond mar- 
kets out-perform US 
treasuries. 

But the stoicism at present 
being displayed by the 
Bundesbank suggests that it 
would not be wise to bet on 
this process starting just yet

The City is awaiting the 
publication ofihe June money . 
supply figures next week with 
fireat interest, the like of which 
has not been seen since the 
early Eighties. 

A run of poor money fig- 
ures, culminating in the an- 
nouncement of a 3 per cent 
nse in the sterling M3 measure 
of money in the May banking 
month, has rekindled concern 
about the pace of monetary 
expansion in the economy. 

in the March-May period, 
sterling M3 rose by 8.6 per 
cent, compared with the previ- 
ous three months. The 
annualized growth over this 
period, 39 per cent, was the 
highest on record. Another 3 
per cent rise in June would 
mean that, in four months, 
sterling M3 would have risen 
by 12' per cent. The 
Chancellor’s target range for 
sterling M3 is lI-to-15 per 
cent annua! growth. 

City economists, knowing 
that they have been badly 


THE TIMES MONDAY JUNE 30 1Q86 

David Smith charts City’s concern at money supply growth 

Liquidity release and rise 
in M3 worries the Bank 


per cent rise in sterling M3. 

The assumption is of a 
return to normality, with the 
public sector borrowing re- 
quirement of £900 million 
fully funded, and a small, £100 
million contraction in the 
“other counterparts.” which 
pushed up sterling M3 very 
sharply in May. The driving 
force behind the 1 percent rise 
in sterling M3 is thus bank 
lending, forecast to increase by 
£1.5 billion. 

Mr Mike Osborne, of 
Kleinwon Grieveson, expects 
a rise of 1 -io-1.25 per cent in 
sterling M3. Again, bank lend- 


caught out on money supply ing is the main factor, up £2 
for billion, offset by a slightly 


lately, appear to be opting 
caution in their early assess- 
ments of the outlook for the 
June money supply figures. 

Mr John Shepperd of Rowe 
& Pitman/Mullens expects a 1 


larger contraction for the oth- 
er counterparts; 

A rise in sterling M3 of 
around 1 per cent would, 
happily, have the effect of 


pushing the ] 2-month rate of 
growth down from 19.5 per 
cent in May to just over 18 per 
cent This is because, as a 
result of die Abbey Life flota- 
tion, it rose by 2.3 per cent in 
June last year. 

But what if the June rise in 
Sterling M3 turns out to be 
another 3 percent? 

The Bank of England, in its 
June Quarterly Bulletin pub- 
lished last week, devoted a lot 
of space to the build-up of 
liquidity in the economy, and 
the conditions in which such 
liquidity could be damagingly 
released into the economy. 

First sterling M3 itself, and 
its reliability; the Bank dearly 
likes an even broader measure 
of money. PSL2. now rede- 
fined to include building soci- 
ety term shares. In the 12 
months to May, its growth was 


14.7 per cent, just inside the 
target range. 

But, as the Bank admits in 
the bulletin, this measure too 
has shown a sharp accelera- 
tion in the latest three months. 

Broad money is growing 
fast, it appears, partly because 
of the intense competition 
between banks, building soci- 
eties and other lenders. The 
velocity of circulation of 
broad money, where Britain is 
unusual, has recorded a sharp 
and sustained fall in recent 
years. 

Now, more liquidity in the 
economy is. on its own. no 
wony. It is the possibly dam- 
aging release of that liquidity 
which concerns the 
authorities. 

The Bank argues:“It re- 
mains possible Lhal, at some 
point, the process by which 


liquidity holdings have been 
built up could be reversed and 
that where held by industrial 
and commercial companies 
the funds could help to finance 
high pay settlements; that 
where held by financial insti- 
tutions they might be switched 
abroad; and that where held 
by households they might seep 
into additional 

consumption.” 

In other words, the time to 
act. say by putting up interest 
rates, will be when there is a 
sign that pay settlements are 
edging up and the rate of 
growth of average earnings, 
stuck at 7.5 per cent for so 
long, begins to head up. 
Another trigger could be a fall 
in the pound brought about by 
a shift of funds abroad, and 
the third a sudden surge in 
consumer spending. 


The essentia! point is that 
the rise in sterling M3, reflect- 
ing the initial build-up of 
liquidity in the economy, is 
less of a cause of concern than 
signs of its release into the 
economy. 

So what should the Bank of 
England do if sterling M3 
shows a rise of 3 per cent or 
even 10 per cent in banking 
June. The answer is. unless 
panicked, absolutely nothing. 

The same argument can be 
applied to any future sharp 
growth in sterling M3 as has 
been officially applied to its 
growth in the recent past As 
long as the concern remains 
the release of liquidity rather 
than liquidity itself, the 
interest rates should only be 
pushed up to put a brake on 
that release. 

This is fine in theory. Bui in 
practice, of course, things are 
unlikely to happen quite this 
way. The Bank has been 
prepared to pul up with 39 per 
cent annualized growth in 
sterling M3 over the past three 
months, on the assumption 
that this is a temporary and 
unrepresentative phenome- 
non. It would be less willing to 
accept a 50 per cent growth 
rate.

The board bought the 70- 
acre site on the demise of the 
controversialcar company set 
up by the American, Mr John 
De Lorean, with British Gov- 
ernment aid. 

Milbencb Crothers, the Bel-

Regina v Marti ndale 
Before Lord Lane. Lord Chief 
Justice. Mr Justice Taylor and 
Mr Justice Scbiemann 
(Judgment given June 24] 

A man who pul a _ small 
quantity of cannabis in his 
wallet knowing what it was. 
remained in possession of it 
even though his memory of the 
drug had laded or gone. Pos- 
session did not depend on the 
alleged possessor's powers of 
memory and possession did not 
come and go as memory revived 
and faded. 

Lord Lane. Lord Chief Jus- 
tice. so staled when delivering 
the judgment of the Court of 
Appeal dismissing an applica- 
tion by Give Martindale. aged 
29. for leave to appeal against 
conviction at Leeds Crown 
Court (Judge Randolph and a 
jury) on a changed plea to 
unlawful possession of a con- 
trolled drug — 366 

milligrammes of cannabis — 
contrary to section 5(2) of the 
Misuse of Drugs Act 1971. He 
was conditionally discharged for 
12 months. 

Mr Jeremy Hill-Baker, as- 
signed by the Registrar of Crim- 
inal Appeals, for the applicant; 
Mr H. A. Richardson for the 
Crown. 

THE LORD CHIEF JUS- 
TICE said that police in Brad- 
ford mounted an operation in 
connection with unlawful pos- 
session of drugs. 

As a result the applicant was 
slopped and searched. The can- 
nabis was found in a leather 
wallet- He was cautioned and 
asked what the substance was. 
He said: "Blow, but I didn't 
know it was there." 

Taken to the police station he 
said that the substance had been 
given to him in Canada two 
years previously; he did not 
smoke cannabis and did not 
know it was in his wallet 
Counsel indicated that the 
defence would be that the 
applicant had the cannabis in 
his wallet for some time in 
Canada and came to this coun- 
try and the presence of the 
cannabis in the wallet had gone 
completely out of his mind. 

The judge ruled that when 
and where the applicant bad 
acquired the drug was im- 
material. The mere (act that he 
had obtained it outside the 
jurisdiction was neither here nor 
there. He knew what the sub- 
stance was. had kepi it and was 
in possession of it even if he had 
forgotten its existence. 

On the judge's ruling that the 
applicant had no defence on 
those facts he changed his plea 
to guilty. 

Mr Hill-Baker had repeated 
the submissions on a weal. His 
contention was that, although 
the applicant had admittedly 
been given the cannabis in 
Canada and had put it in his 
wallet where it had remained 
ever since, nevertheless that was 
two years or more previously. 

In the meantime he had 
forgotten all about iL Therefore 
when it was found in his wallet 
in bis pocket he was not in 
possession of it. 

Possession, went the argu- 
ment. did not exist unless there 
was knowledge of the presence 
or the article and of its nature. 
There was no knowledge if 
recollection of the presence of 
the article had failed. 

In other words, there was no 
possession if the alleged pos- 
sessor had forgotten that he had 
the article. 

In their Lordships' judgment 
that argument was fallacious. It 
was true that a man did not 
necessarily possess every article 
which he might have in his 
pockets. 

If. for example, some evil- 
minded person secretly slipped 
cannabis into the pocket of 


another without that other's 
knowledge, the other was not in 
law in possession of the can- 
nabis. 

The present situation was 
quite differenL The applicant 
himself put the cannabis in his 
wallet knowing what it was. He 
was then in possession in law. as 
was conceded. 

In their Lordships' opinion, 
subject to the authorities, he 
remained in possession even 
though his memory of the drug 
had faded or gone. 

Possession did not depend on 
the alleged possessor's power of 
memory, nor did possession 
come and go as memory revived 
or faded. If it were to do so the 
man with poor memory would 
be acquitted and the man with 
good memory would be con- 
victed. 

In R v Russell (Raymond) 
{The Times January 2, 1985; SI 
Cr App R 315) the court had 
said: “It would in our judgment 
be wrong lo hold that a man 
knowingly has a weapon with 
him if his forgetfulness of its 
existence or presence in his car 
is so complete as to amount to 
ignorance that it is there at all. 

“This is not a defence which 
juries would in the ordinary way 
be very likely to accept, but if it 
is raised it should be lefi to them 
for their decision." 

Mr Richards invited their 
Lordships to say that that 
decision was distinguishable on 
its fans from the instant case. 
Their Lordships did not pause 
to consider the matter on that 
basis, because R v BusweU 
<11972] 1 WLR 64) was not 
drawn to the court's attention in 
Russell. 

in Buswell the judgment of 
the court was delivered by Lord 
Justice Pbiliimore. Hr stated 
that the real problem there was 
the question whether drugs law- 
fully acquired by prescription in 
some way passed out of a 
person's possession if he forgot 
that he had them or if he 
thought that they had been 
destroyed whereas in fact they 
were still in a drawer. 

Thai court thought that it 
could not be said that simply as 
a resuh of a mistaken belief or 
failure to appreciate that they’ 
were still there they had thereby 
in some way passed out of 
possession. 

Lord Justice Phillimore 
continued: “Of course, it is quite 
different if I hand something 
over lo someone else to destroy, 
so that it passes from my 
custody and they officiously put 
il back in my house without 
telling me: ... in those sons of 
cases you are back on the 
problem . , . whether something 
comes into your possession. 

“But if you have got it in your 
custody and you put it in some 
safe place, and then forget you 
have got it, and discover a year 
or two later, when you happen 
to look in that particular recep- 
tacle that it is still there, it seems 
to this court idle to suggest that 
during those two years il has not 
been in your possession. 

“It has been there under your 
hand and controL If it has not 
been in your possession, in 
whose possession has it been? 
Presumably it has not been in a 
state of limbo”. 

Had that judgment been 
brought to the attention of the 
court in Russell, no doubt 
Russell would have been de- 
cided differently. 

In any event.' in so for as the 
two cases were inconsistent, 
their Lordships followed the 
earlier case which was closer to 
the tons of the instant case and 
was in accordance with the 
views which their Lordships had 
formed. 

The judge was right. The 
application was dismissed.

Penalty not excessive

Jolley v Bolton General Com- 
missioners 

Before Mr Justice Scon 
{Judgment given June I9{ 

An award by general tax 
commissioners ofihe maximum 
amount of penalties permitted 
under sections 93 and 95 of the 
Taxes Management Act 1970, 
totalling £41.880. against a tax- 
payer who had for some ten 
years either failed to submit tax 
returns or who had submitted 
inaccurate returns, was not 
excessive and would not be 
reduced. 

Mr Justice Scott so held in the 
Chancery Division when 
dismissing an appeal by Mr 
Leslie Ambrose Jolley against 
the award of penalties made by 
the Bolton General Commis- 
sioners. 

The taxpayer in person: Mr R. 
K. Mathew for the Revenue. 

MR JUSTICE SCOTT said 
that the penalties related to the 
taxpayer's wilful defaults for the 
years from 1966 to 1977 inclu- 
sive. 

The informations laid against 


him were in respect of his 
delivery of incorrect returns 
under section 95< I ) of the 1970 
Act or of his failure to deliver 
returns under section 93(2) of 
the Act. 

For the year 1973-74 he had 
failed to deliver a return that 
should have included a charge- 
able gain of £58,000. 

The commissioners found 
that the taxpayer had carried on 
a steadily increasing property 
business vn and around Bolton. 
The history, they suited, was one 
of long-cominued and persistent 
lack or compliance in regard to 
bis tax affairs. 

They saw no reason for 
awarding less than the maxi- 
mum penalties as laid down in 
the statutory provisions. 

The taxpayer had not shown 
cause why the commissioners 
were wrong in their decision. He 
was a man who had done his 
best to given the Revenue the 
run-around and for a long time 
had succeeded in so doing. 

in such circumstances the 
appeal was dismissed

Regina v Secretary of State for 
the Home Office, Ex parte 
Erdogan 

Before Mr Justice Nolan 
[Judgment given June 24] 

The provisions of the Im- 
migration Act 1971 did not allow 
an applicant any right to remain 
in the United Kingdom pending 
the outcome of his application 
to revoke a deportation order 
made against him by the Sec- 
retary of State for the Home 

Office under section 5 of the 
ACL 

Mr Justice Nolan so held in 
the Queen's Bench Division, 
refusin&an application for. inter 
alia, a writ of habeas corpus 
which was being sought by Mr 
Ali Erdogan, a Turirish national, 
imprisoned pending the out- 
come of his application to 
revoke a deportation order. 

Mr Eugene Cotran for the 
applicant: Mr John Laws for the 
secretary of state. 

MR JUSTICE NOLAN said 
that the question as to whether 
the applicant was entitled to 


remain in the L>niied Kingdom 
had to be answered by reference 
to section 3 of the 1971 Act. 
which was fundamental to tbe 
scheme of the Act. In the light of 
those provisions, it seemed 
totally unarguable that he had 
any right to remain in the 
United Kingdom at all. 

His Lordship added that 
counsel for the applicant 
submined that the case did not 
fall within paragraph lOffXb) 
because directions had been 
made by the immigration officer 
under paragraph 8(2). and the 
secretary of state had had no 
power to invoke paragraph 10. 

It had to be tight that direc- 
tions might be given more than 
once under paragraphs 8 and 10 
to Schedule 2. Tbe fact that 
directions had been given under 
paragraph 8. as Mr Laws 
submitted, did not prevent fur- 
ther directions being given un- 
der that paragraph or paragraph 
10 if the circumstances arose to 
make it necessary and appro- 
priate that that should be done.

TIMES 


A SPECIAL REPORT ON _ 
THE ROYAL SOCIETY OF MEDICINE 


THE 


June 30,1986 


Wimpole Street 

crv^tv is also 


The Royal Society of Medi- 
cine is “the nearest dung we 
have in Britain to a national 
academy of medicine, says 
Sir John Walton, its president 
for the past two y«irs. 

The RSM, Sir John points 
out, fulfils a wide range ot 
functions. It is a cam >«» 
academic excellence but also 
of contact and dialogue with 
health professionals besides 
doctors, and with the public. 

It concerns itself not only 
with every field of orthodox 
medicine, but with comple- 
mentary or aliemauve thera- 
pies. It is a conference centre, 
a club with the splendidly 
appropriate address of No 1 
Wimpole Street, a publishing 
house, a forum, even in some 
respects a campaigning 
organization. . 

Not that it enters raw 
political matters. Sir John 
savs: “We are very open- 
minded." Thai is why there * 
an “open section among the 
33 sections devoted to medi- 
cal specialities, from 
anaesthetics to urology, from 
the well-known fields of sur^ 
gery and psychiatry to such 
recondite disciplines as mea- 
surement medicine and colo- 

pr The*open section considers 
medical issues of broad public 
significance over a spectrum 
which encompasses topics as 
varied as nursing, religion, 
and racial discrimination and 
the ethics of research on 
children. 

•The RSM “ more than a 
medical and scientific 
societv " Sir John says. We 
recognize that medical proce- 
dures and activities are ol 
increasing public concern, so 
we collaborate with outside 
bodies and individuals in 
discussion. 

"But we are not involved 
with formulating policy or 
with the politics of medicine. 

-Nevertheless, we can prop- 
erly explore issues of public 
concern in relation to health. 
If we see that social actors or 
a resource constraint are hav- 
ing an effect on the health care 
of the population, we would 
not hold back from com men i- 


sion are a political hot potato. 

Moreover, Sir John Walton is 
a president of the RSM who 
has also been a president ot 

both the BMA- the dociora 

trade union - and the General 
Medical Council, medicines 
regulatory body, as well as 
being warden of Green Col- 
lege, Oxford. 

His comment, therefore, 

L4.. that 


k 

The Royal Society ofMed icine’s new London premises -refaxbi^dj ■ a 
million - will be officiallyopenedbythe QueenonWednesday 

: I— d ' I 1 save A Lift ^theh^ih afa!! people. On*

ng on them." 
That i 


uniui 

L declaration comes at a 
ime when “resource 
constraints" in health provi- 


naLuuiu«.i>k,» ■ . 

weighty indicanon that the 
RSM is becoming a much 
more outward-looking organi- 
zation than it has ever been. 

’ But, unlike the Royal Col- 
lege or the BMA, it does not 
have formal mechanisms for 
reaching agreed public posi- 
tions on broad issues. Its 
exploration of ihese, therefore, 
seems bound to remain largely 
at the scientific and academic 
level, albeit that the by-laws 
are being amended to stream- 
line and democratize the com- 
mittee structure. 

In the society s brochure to 
commemorate the opening of 
its refurbished premises by the 
Queen on July 2, the director 
of the Medical Research 
Council's Research Centre, Sir 
Christopher Booth, sees the 
RSM's chief role as meeting 
“the compelling need” to pro- 
vide a national medical forum 
at a time when specialization 
and new technologies are 
causing “a centrifugal^ frag- 
mentation of medicine." . 

The result is a “bewildering 
proliferation " of medical 
specialisms and even sub- 
specialisms. Sir Christopher 
says: “These now threaten to 
undermine the integrity of 
some of the nation s_ 
respected specialist societies. 

Apart from helping to bring 
them together, the RSM can 
fulfil the necessary role of 
encouraging social contact be- 
tween donors from different 
fields and from associated 
professions. It is the only 
organization in Britain. Sir 
Christopher believes, that can 
effectively do this. 

The RSM is therefore open 
not only to donors, but to 
dentists, vets, medical re- 
searchers and medical admin- 


istrators. K can admit “others 
who satisfy Council as to mar 
qualifications and scientific 
attainments,” which ensures 
that it preserves a catholic 
membership. 

It then, it is not a policy- 
making organization, it can 
have a considerable and con- 
tinuing influence on medical 
information and education in 
the broadest possible way. 

But there is more to ihe 
RSM than this. Sir John 
points out There are its eight 
inter-disciplinary forums, in- 
cluding wide-ranging forums 
on medical communication, 
food and health and the GPS 
role in relation to the family. 
There is. too, the separate 
Medical Pharmaceutical Fo- 


rum. which is concerned with 
close, ethical relationships be- 
tween the medical profession 
and the pharmaceutical 
industry. 

Sir John adds: “It is also 
important to note that we are 
moving into new fields. For 
instance, we have hosted a 
'number of inter-disciplinary 
colloQuia on complementary 
and alternative medicine. We 
want to explore as dispassion- 
ately as we can and m as 
balanced a way as possible the 
place of these other disciplines 
in medical ^treatment and 

management” 

The RSM was moving 
much more into health educ- 
tion, Sir John said - he 


instanced its Save A Life 
campaign. •«. 

Indeed, Sir John 
Stallworthy, a former presi- 
dent, says that the society s 
international .' dimension is 
considered vital to both Bnt- 
' ish and world medicine^ . 

He adds“Medical research 
benefits from work in many 
different countries and what is 
discovered in one is for the 
benefit of everyone, every- 
where. P&steur, Koch and 
Lister were all good patriots 
but their work was done for 
and taken by the whole world; 

' their nationalities were 
unimportant 

“Medical practice is con- 
cerned — and could well be 
more explicitly concerned — 


with the health of all people on 
this earth." 

Sigmficanily in this light, as 

manyas 6,500 of the society s 

17,000 members live^ana 

work outside Britain. There 
are reciprocal contacts at soci- 
ety level with many other 
countries in the Common- 
wealth, Europe and beyond. 

The RSM has long played a 
‘ leading role in organizing 
international confe rences. 
particularly Anglo-American 

meetings, an exercise prompt- 
ed by the RSM Foundation of 
' New York. a sister organiza- 
tion governed by an indepen- 
dent^ board of American 
directors. The foundation also 
supports an exchange pro- 
gramme of visiting professor-

y Sir John Stallworth) ' be- 
' Heves that the cwBjMjoaof 
■ ,ihe RSM's new home w» 
open fresh opportunitiesfor 
greater European and interna- 
tional collaboration 

“This cannot raiL . ne says,

many country who«*etber 
might succeed m jjtejgg

ing of so many millions ot 
deprived fellow humans. 

No less vital in the new 
scheme of things at the society 
is RSM Services, 
publishing, cqnftfWJMiP; 
nizing, audio-video prod ucu *£ 
and other activities: These are 
designed to take advantage of 
those activities of the society 
which can be property and 
ethically exploited. 

This commercial aspect is 
crucial to the RSM’s contmu- 

^ John Walton said: “The 
cost of redevelopment has 
been high, but we have held 
subscriptions down during the 

disruption. . 

; “Though bur appeal has 
.been very successful, finan- 
cially we are not yet out of the 

wood, -and subscriptions wiU 

have to rise substantially next 

year. But for the profits made 
by RSM Services, which come 
to the society, the subscrip- 
tions would have to be very 

much higher." 

Thereare several categories 
of membership. Sir John. ex- 
plained. Feflows, who can join 
up ip five sections, are elected 
after nomination by two exist- 
ing Fellows. Affiliate member- 
ship is open to those resident 
overseas. Medical students 
and young doctors can be- 
come associates, at a lower 
subscription rate. Lay people 
can join the society to partici- 
pate in the open sectioo.

vision and perseverance have 
paid off handsomely.

don Wolstenholme, which m

future and encouraged tt W 
plan for a more outward-

Robert Thompson, who 
succeeded Mr Hewitt as exec-

said the changes were already 
having an impact - a dramat- 
ic instance being the Save A 
Life Campaign, significant 
particularly because it showed 
how the society could weave 

different strands of health and .-1 

medical work together.

meetings and low attendance. 

Topic-related inter-disci- 
plinary forums are yet another 
type of RSM conference. The 
disruption caused by redevel- 
opment has prevented new 
ones' being established* but 
this is likely to happen soon. 

Medicine is indeed, as Sir 
Christopher Booth comments, 
"fragmenting" bur at the same 
time more and more practitio- 
ners in different disciplines 
find they need to collaborate 
closely with, and to an extent 
understand, the work of those 
in other fields. 

forums have been set np on 
blood viscosity, veins, mater- 
nity and the newborn, mental 
retardation, lipids, medical 
communication and 
nutrition. 

There are, too, coUoqma on 
conventional medicine and 
complementary therapies, 
which began in 1984. One of 
these, on science and healing, 
was attended by the Prince of 
Wales, who first publicly 
voiced his interest in alterna- 
tive medicine when he was 
president of the British Medi- 
cal Association, stimulating 
widespread interest and a 
BMA inquiry.' 

Though this has recently 
reported disparagingly on 
most alternative therapies, the 
RSM continues to hold its 
colloquia on this subject area. 
The latest annual report notes 
that they attract “considerable 
interest” among the society’s 
Fellows, “who are looking for 
reassurance about tire poten- 
tial contributions to health 
care that can be offered by 
responsible, trained and expe- 
rienced practitioners in com- 
plementary therapies’*. 

Another notable feature of 
RSM meetings are the Stevens 
Lectures for the Laity, held at 
least once a year and given by 
distinguished speakers to in- 
vited audiences. 

The subjects are of “com- 
mon and commanding 
interest” to doctors and lay 
people — the most recent. 





' the total exceeds -200 a year, people — the most recent,

^ r -■? i->- ministration at RSM head- called The shaping of the 
- quarters, -and there has at world we live in, and con-

* v-ra disparity between the effort The other side to the confer- 
Datidl/^ pm into arranging section ence activity of the RSM in its 


own new conference centre, 
whh all modern facilities and 
the capacity to accommodate 
meetings of any size, by video- 
linking of different halls 
through a central control pan- 
el, of up to 500 people. 

All the conference rooms, of 
which the largest is the 200- 
seat tiered Barnes theatre, 
have full sets of audio-visual 
aids, including amplification 
and recording ' equipment, 
plus television monitors and 
video and slide projectors, 
with such facilities as fading 
and mixing. There are transla- 
tion booths. The sound instal- 
lations incorporate aids for the 
hard of hearing. 

The RSM thus offers a 
facility' for meetings ranging 
from small round tables to 
large symposia, all on one site 
at least as centrally placed as 
any conference centre in Lon- 
don. This is ideal for any 
doctors who want to organize 
a conference for any purpose, 
and RSM Services has avail- 
able its own expertise to 
ensure that these are orga- 
nized to best effect, with such

Pat Patterson is managing 
director of RSM Services,to 
which he has come whh a 
record of having handled 
more than 2,000 conferences, 
largely for the pharmaceutical 
industry. 

He says: “I want to bring 
completely new thinking into 
the conference facilities here”. 
Until now, the RSM has been 
available for medical and 
scientific meetings arranged 
by individual members, by 
kindred societies, by pharma- 
ceutical companies and by 
research agencies. 

“But”, says Mr Patterson, 
“we would be prepared to 
consider allowing the 
premises to be used by non- 
medical professional organi- 
zations — those in the allied 
health-care fields, for 
example.” 

An example, too, of new 
times and a new spirit of 
enterprise at the RMS.

Apart from its journals the Royal 
School of Medicine publishes a wide 
range of papers, reports, proceedings, 
abstracts, monographs and the like, 
and bas recently begun to move into 
the mass market. 

Its commercial arm, RSM Services,

Howard Croft, director of publica- 
tions, says it has the expertise to 
handle any publishing project, from a 
new medical journal to a guide for the 
general public. 

“The essence," he says, “is quality 
with speed." 

He describes his department’s cen- 
tral activity as “making money for the 
society out of publications", provid- 
ed. of course, they are consistent with 
the RSM’s standing and image. 

That essentia] qualification has not 
prevented its being involved into 
controversy — albeit a rumpus that 
some might regard as spurious. 

Its recent book for young people 


and their parents. Growing Up . a 
responsible but photographically 
frank guide to sexual development, 
was attacked by MPs and others as 

‘-pornography". 

To Sir John Walton, president of 
the society, such critics are “flat- 
earthers". 

There are several series of RSM 
publications. First, there is the Inter- 
nationa! Congress and Symposium 
series, in which there are more than 
100 titles. 

The editor-in-chief is Dr Hugh 
I'Eiang, formerly editor of The Practi- 
tioner. Most of these publications, on 
clinical topics, are sponsored by 
pharmaceutical companies. 

They give verbatim prodeedings of 
conferences held at the RSM and 
elsewhere, although some consist of 
collections of papers. 

They are usually published within 
three to four months of a meeting 
rather than, as with many such 
volumes, a year or more later. 

Then there is the Round Table 


series, edited by Dr Clive Wood. 
These consist of edited transcripts of 
smaller-scale meetings where groups ' 
of experts discuss particular topics 
without producing manuscripts or 
making formal presentations. 

These booklets are also published 
with the aid of pharmaceutical 
sponsorship. 

One of the latest in the Round 
Table series considers die lessons to 
be learned from the Bradford football 
stadium disaster on the handling of 
accident and emergency burns. 

RSM Services publishes for the lay 
public, as with the Growing Up book. 
In the pest such associated publishing 
ventures have been academic, but 
that is no longer so. Another project is 
a mass-market booklet on drug abuse 
for addicts and then- families. 

The RSM handles publications for 
other learned societies, a field in 
which it is hoping to grow. Mr Croft 
says; “Often they do not have the 
expertise or manpower to produce 
their own pulications. 


We have the people who can help 
and we can give these other bodies 
our business management and con- 
sultancy services, both for journals 
and books." 


The Journal of die RSM publishes 
supplements of its own, again on 
various clinical topics. * . 


Finally, there 'are the superbly 
' i of great 


produced facsimile reprints 
books in the history of medicine in 
the RSM Library of foe Medical 
Classics, printed in both limited 
editions and ra less sumptions but 
still high quality form. 


The' RSM has become a leading 
medical publisher. There is every 
incidation that this side of its 
activities, constantly helping, the 
spread of medical knowledge and 
understanding, both among doctors 
and the public, will continue to 
expand and expand rapidly.

A tradition for today 


Allen & Hanburys Limited, 
established in 1715, congratulates 
the Royal Society of Medicine. 


The aim of Allen & Hanburys’ founders 
was to produce good quality medicines 
at fair prices.This philosophy has, 
for more than 270 years, guided the 


development of die Company’s 
innovative anti-asthmatic and 
anti-aDezgic preparations. 


These medicines, designed to meet 
patients’ needs, and the extensive 
professional support provided by 
Allen & Hanburys, complement 
the quest for higher standards 
of patient care embodied in the 
Royal Society of Medicine.

Journals for the world 


In its magnificent library, the 
RSM has one of foe world’s 
largest collections of past and 
contemporary medical jour- 
nals. Among them are two 
distinguished publications 
that are its own — the Journal 
of the Royal Society of Medi- 
cine, which appears monthly, 
and Tropical Doctor, pub- 
fished quarterly. 

The Journal is is its 80th 
year. For most of its history it 
contained only reports of pro- 
ceedings and no original pa- 
pers but that has now changed. 

Every issue contains a wide 
range of clinical articles pa- 
pers reviews letters and soci- 
ety news Its signed editorials 
usually by senior and distin- 
guished leaders of the medical 
profession, carry great weight 

Much the same, of course, 
could be said for The lancet 
and die British Medical Jour- 
nal, which hate great prestige 
and appear weekly. Why, 
then, is there a need for foe 
RSM’s journal? 

The editor. Professor AJ. 
Harding fains, Mphiny “It 
has a particularly internation- 
al flavour, reflecting the com- 
position and approach of foe 
Society. We attract articles 
from ail over the world." 

The BMJ, in particular, he 
thought though excellent was 
inevitably effected by the fact 
that it was published by the 
British Medical Association, 
the doctors’ trade anion. 

The Journal makes a partic- 
ular point too, of seeking to 
attract articles and papers 


from younger doctors, who 
might be too over-awed by the 
prestige of The Lancet and 
BMJ to feel confident about 
submitting their work to them. 

The range of subjects and 
authors is very wide. This 
mouth’s issue, for instance, 
carries an editorial by Dr 
Harold Baum, of King’s Col- 
lege, London, entitled Higher 
Education — what has gone 
wrong ? — a paper on asthma, 
another on in-growing toe- 
nails, others still on 
Alzheimer's disease, urine cy- 
tology and therapeutics. 

There are both case reports 
and meeting reports, letters on 
subjects as different as glue 
ear and venoas ulceration and 
reviews of books on pain, 
tumours, coronary care, IUDs, 
public health; monoclonal 
antibodies and kidney disease. 

Tropical Doctor describes 
itself as a journal of modern 
medical practice. It was found- 
ed in 1971 to provide practical 
articles for isolated medical 
workers in developing coun- 
tries who, because of their 
remoteness from colleagues, 
must often do everything 
themselves. 

Its journal’s contents, then, 
are anned at those whose 
conditions of work are diffi- 
cult, with limited access to 
medical facilities. Such doc- 
tors may have to act as 
surgeons, pathologists, admin- 
istrators and, above all else, 
medical improvisers.

editor. Dr Bany Laing, fa not a

In many poorer countries

based purely on research. We 
are after basic, practical 
knowledge. The journal is 
really directed at the primary 
level, at barefoot doctors, and 
at singlehanded doctors in 
hospitals.” 

Professor M S R Hurt, 
chairman of Tropical Doctor’s 
editorial committee, says the 
need for The Journal is greater 
today then ever. “It is an 
Qlnstos to think that high- 
technology medicine fa going 
to become available to most of

“Medicine will have to 
adapt itself to current financial

The library of the Royal

Society of Medicine, now 
rehoused over four floors, is 
universally considered one of 
the finest and most compre- 
hensive postgraduate medical 
research institutions of its 
kind in the world. 

It' bas about 500,000 vol-

The library covers foe bio- 
medical sciences, clinical 
practice and clinical research. 
It deals with medicine in its 
broadest sense without spe- 
cializing in any subject field, 
although there is strong em- 
phasis on postgraduate level 
clinical and research material. 


bets, which goes back to the 
early years of foe 19fo century. 
The impressive extent of 
today's service, is detailed in 
foe society's annual reports. 
More than- 85.000 books and 
periodical articles were sent 
out in 1984-85: Postal borrow-

books at a lime for a month or 


so. 


Other services given by foe 
staff of 24 include both man-

ences is particularly good. A 
selective monograph and text- 
book acquisition policy en- 
sures that it gets most mqjor 
postgraduate level texts. 

But foe library also houses 
much historical material, izs

It has benefited from large 
acquisitions and notable be- 
quests over theyears, includ- 
ing libraries of societies which

outstanding Victorian poly- 
math, Peter Mark Roget, of 
Thesaurus fame. - 
. More recently foe library 
has received an important 
donation: Dr Alex Comfort's 
collection of material on 
gerontology. 

Professor Harold Ellis, se- 
nior honorary librarian, says 
that though the library's pri- 
mary role is to provide a full 
range of services to members, 
it has always played a part in 
the national and international 
provision of medical 
information. 

This is evidenced in its 
postal loan service to mem- 


ties the library gives 
users have access both to 
current and 'retrospective 
searches of a wide range of 
data bases, including Medline, - 
Excerota Medica and Chemi- 
cal, Biological and Psychologi- 
cal Abstracts. This use of 
computerized information re- 
trieval enables doctors in even 
foe remotest parts of the world 
to have access to a huge range 
of medical literature. 

Mr Stewart says: “It fa one- 

handy for^readere^wbo are; 
say. on study leave and can 
base themselves here, cutting 
out a lot ofthe hassle of getting 
material from more than one 
place.” .... .

finds the library particularly 
useful, he adds, , fa ohe re- 
.seamber in -a.. field ^ such as 
immunology, or biochemistry

small hospital which cannot 
afford *the appropriate 
literature. 

“We then fill the breach by 
sending what he jieeds.” Mr 
Stewart says. • 

The library' s chief virtue, its 
size and comprehensiveness, 
has also been foe root of its 
chief problem over the years — 
shortage of space. 

More than a century ago, 
the growth of the library, to 
17,0u0 volumes was foe main 
reason for . moving to new. 
premises, and foe six moves of 
headquarters in foe society's 
history have largely been dic- 
tated by the library’s expan- 
sion. Even foe move to the old

Working conditions for 
readers are also a lot better 
than they wet. There is more 
seating — there fa room now 
for 60 readers — and there are 
also single and two-seater 
carrels for long-term study. 


Professor Ellis says:“Now 
that foe library has been 
relieved of its space problems, 
it can look forward to a future 
of developing its services to 
inert foe needs not only of 
members, but of the medical 
and scientific community 
worldwide. 


“The library looks forward 
to making foil use of foe 
opportunities presented by 
new technologies to tackle foe 
problems of providing medi- 
cal information.

ative development of services

In Dr Maurice Davidson’s 


convened by the President of 
the Royal College of Physi- 
cians, and composed of Fel- 
lows and Members of the 
Medical Societies of London, 
it is highly desirable that an 
effort should be made to unite 
the principal sodeties into a 
new body, to be known as "The 
Royal Sodety of Medicine’*’ 

It was not until 1907 that the 
legal details concerning the 
financing of the new sodety 
woe settled to the satisfaction 
of everyone but the Medical 
Sodety, which withdrewfrom 
the association, and a new 
Charter was then granted to 


involve the closing of the 
library, and the dislocation of 
the work for at least twelve 
months. 

The alternative was to pull 
down the existing premises 
and rebuild, at an estimated 
cost of £51,000. It is ironic to 
consider that 80 years later, 
the sodety adopted both of 
these alternatives ai once, on a 
different site. 

Dr Davidson’s researches 
into the minutes of the society 
reveal an almost endless series 
of considerations of varying 
proposals, an extraordinary 
amount of dithering and a 
maddening series of votes for 
and against separate and vari- 
ous proposals which must 
have driven the officers of the 
sodety u> distraction. 

A building committee was 
formed to oversee the ap- 
pointment of an architect, 
getting plans and tenders, 
superintending the progress 
and reporting to the Council, 
at a site on the corner of 
Wimpole Street and Henrietta 
Street 


It cost a great deal more 
than the estimates, and the 
Wellcome Foundation came 
once more to the rescue with a 
generous donation. 

By 1953 the work was com- 
pleted, but even before that, 
those who watch over the 
progress of the Royal Sodety 
had applied to the Privy 
Coundl in 1952 for permission 
to acquire the Western Dis- 
trict Post Office next door. 


The sodety was granted first 
option when the Post Office 
no longer required the site. 
This happened in 1977 and in 
1978 the freehold was 
.acquired. 

From then on it was a 
question of negotiating the 
best deal for the society. 
Thirty developers or partners 
were considered in a package 
for the planning permissions. 


and an agreement was finally 
arrived at with the Heron 
Property Corporation in 1981. 
Under this agreement. Heron 
agreed to build, at its expense, 
a building of six storeys, three 
designed for the society (and 
costing £8 million) and three 
as offices. 

It received the freehold and 
leased back the sodety*s part 
of the building at a peppercorn 
rent for 950 years, a period 


matching the leasehold on L, 
Wimpole Street. 

As soon as the new building 
was completed in spring 1985, 
the old buildi ng was tom apart 
by the contractors and com- 
pletely refurbished, a new 
mezzanine floor inserted in 
the main library, with new 
offices on the third and fourth 
floors. 

It has now been completed, 
to sighs of relief all round. 


particularly from the staff, 
who have managed to contin- 
ue their work through four 
years’ of rebuilding, with all 
that means in the way of noise, 
disruption, inconvenience 
and quantities of dust 

All building operations 
seem endless, but on July 2, 
everything will be in order — 
until the next time.

One of the most striking 
aspects of the rejuvenated 
Royal Society of Medicine is 
the expansion of its film and 
video unit under Hugh 
Raggett who joined a year ago 
from Channel 4. 

He said; 1 '! want to make our 
productions available to a 
broader section of the com- 
munity both in terms of health 
personnel and the general 
public. We need to have an 
outward looking, commercial- 
ly viable production unit.” 

A new strategy has therefore 
been adopted, which includes 
undertaking commissions, in- 
cluding health related projects 
anywhere in the world, from a 
broad base of clients. 

Among them, in Britain, are 
the Royal College of Nursing, 
the NHS Training Authority, 
the St Andrew's private psy- 
chiatric hospital in North- 
ampton and even Marks & 
Spencer, for whom the unit is 
making training films. 


Action replay by video 
the skill of the surgeon 


The subject matter is equal- 
ly varied. There are Aims 
dealing with communications 
techniques, the doctor-patient 
relationship, drug and alcohol 
abuse and the care of patients 
with AIDS. 

Particularly noteworthy is 
the range of films and videos 
made as part of the Asian 
Mother and Baby Campaign, 
which is a partnership be- 
tween the Save the Children 
Fund, the Government, 
health authorities and the 
Health Education Council. 

The campaign aims to pub- 
licize and improve the accessi- 
bility of ante-natal services to 
Asian women. The RSM’s 
unit has undertaken a series of 
films, also available on video 
cassette and in several lan- 
guages, on such subjects as 
family planning, pregnancy 
and maternity. ' 

Mr Raggett points out that 
various institutions, including 
commercial concerns, are will- 
ing to sponsor RSM films in 



With the successful 
completion of the building 
The Royal Society of Medicine 
gratefully acknowledge 
the contribution of their

advisers.

the belief that they are worth- 
while. 

Mr Ratt said: “My role is to 
identify the myriad of subjects 
on which films should be 
made and raise the funds for 
them. But as a former director 
and producer, he also plays a 
leading pan in the creative 
process, directing some films 
himself as well as commis- 
sioning freelance directors. 

Among the videos of broad- 
cast quality which the unit has 
undertaken have been those 
which comprise the RSM 
Video Library of Surgery and 
Medicine, made in association 
with the Royal College of 
Surgeons and published for 
the RSM by Macmillan Medi- 
cal Video Productions. 

To meet the needs of medi- 
cal training establishments all 
over the world, each video is 
available in three formats and 
is made to four international 
television Stan Hanfe 

This series enables audi- 
ences to watch senior practi- 
tioners, whose skills are not 
widely available to postgradu- 
ate students, performing oper- 
ations. 

. They can not only see what 
is happening in a greater 
degree of detail than could be 
obtained within the -operating 
theatre, often getting a better 
view than even the surgeon 
has, but they can of course, 
rewind the video for a second 
look. Such clear and detailed 
observation of surgical work 
has seldom been possible 
before. 


The programmes concen- 
trate on principles and proce- 
dures, and practitioners 
discuss potential problems 
and their solutions, demon- 
strating their techniques and 
suggesting alternatives. 

The topics are selected by a 
distinguished editorial board, 
chaired by Sir John 
Stallworthy, a former .RSM 
president and emeritus 
Nuffield professor of obstet- 
rics and gynaecology at Ox- 
ford, with Professor Roger 
Green halgh, of Charing Cross 
Hospital, as edhor-in-chief! 

The board's members com- 
bine expertise in surgery and 
medicine with substantial 
teaching experience. All surgi- 
cal videos are endorsed by the 
Royal College of Surgeons, so 
their educational soundness is 
assured. 

Because the film and 
televison unit specializes in 
medical programmes, it can 
bring special expertise to pro- 
ductions, with maximum 
cost-effectiveness for its cli- 
ents. Client liaison at every 
step is a priority. 

Apart from such prime 
teaching aids as the video 
library, the unit is developing 
several documentary series, of 
which the Asian Mother and 
Baby films are a harbinger, 
designed both for doctors and 
general TV audiences. 

The unit is also, of course, 
available to provide services 
that may be needed for medi- 
cal and scientific meetings.

There is a Mend of the 
modem and the traditional 
that has been ssccessfnlly 
carried out through the whole 
bonding- Walk a little Anther 
on and yon will find the 
Conservatory — a high, glass 
holding. 

- “Not an atriaan”, says John 
Bastaof Elsom, Padfc and 
Roberts Partnership, the ar- 
chitects involved in not only 
the -building but the design of 
the interior decoration. In a 
building with a long tradition 
he considered it extremely 
important to avoid the tradi- 
tional look of a London dub, 
while retaining the comfort- 
able fed of del premises. 

So, in this way, there is 
neither any extreme design of 
modem furniture in violent 
colourings, nor is there any 
Chippendale. Die RSIVTs col- 
lection of paintings and final- " 
tore was, on the other hand, 
hnportaat enough to figure on 
the archhectnral drawings, 
and each piece has been very 
carefully positioned. 

The Conservatory provides 
space, light and a vista in the 
centre off the bnflding, covering 
a courtyard with a marble 
floor, marble containers fall of 
plants (this being a building 
dedicated to science, ea cSj 
plant is labelled) and die bar, 
battery and restaarant look 
into tbe Conservatory. 

On the same floor are a 
Quiet Room, containing some 
of tbe society's period fiunl- 
tore, and a Common Room, 
with bleached grey wood pan- 
elling and grey leather 
furniture . 

On the first floor is the 
Dom as Medics, in reality a 
small private hotel, with Its 
own reception and sitting area: 
panelled in red wood, with an 
internal terrace overlooking 
the Conservatory. 

There are 34 bedrooms, 
single and double, single over- 
looking an interesting, 
roofccape to the north, double 
facing the internal court with 
the Conservatory. Bedrooms 
with bath are at a premium in 
the centre of London, but these

Just a touch of 
the old 

style club class 


-mid there is a littie breakfast 
room , once again overiookii^ 
the Conservatory.. 

Club activities and the res- 
taurant are not generally avail- 
able at die week end, in 
common with some London 
dabs. Tire convenience of such 
accommodation cannot be lost 
on members who have de- 
spaired daring the lasst four 
years and let their member- 
ship [apse. 

Convenience, also, most 
play a part in the me of tbe 
building for meetings, confer- 
ences, press conferences, and** 
colloquial the meetings held 
by tbe RSM on various disci- 
plines, such as the three 
attended by Prince Charles on 
therapy complementary to 
conventional medicine, indnd- 
ing homeopathy, osteopathy. 


chiropractic, acupuncture and 
the study of herbal remedies. 

The society can provide a 
national forum across all disci- 
plines for the discussion of 
medical matters, without feel- 
ing impelled to deliver judge- 
ments on the subjects 
discussed. 

The re-equipped Barnes 
Hall, seating up to 200 people, 
now has buflt in booths for 
simultaneous translation, ami 
the West Hall, also modern- 
ized, seats 120. 

There are rooms for smaller 
meetings, such as the recep- 
tion room, sponsored by 
Mercke Sharp and Do line, 
and popular for press confer- 
-ences.

More than a hint of 
tradition in the Common 
Room, above, hot elegant 
modernity in tbe 
Conservatory, a high, 
glass building - “but not an 
atrium,” says the 
architect 


redjt is equipped with not only 
a Waterford crystal chandelier f 
owned by the society, but also * 
air conditioning, and an enor- 
mous painting by James 
Northcote of His Imperial 
Majesty the Tsar rescuing a 
bumble peasant Awn death in 
the river WUnaJn 1806 for 
which he received the Royal 
Humane Society's medal. 

- At the windows are fashion- 
able red and white striped 
Roman Minds. It is a long way 
from its original use as the 
central hall of the Post Office. 

Meetings of all sires and 
shapes can be accommodated 
in the conference room, which 
can be sub-divided into three 
separate rooms, each served 6>‘ 
directly from tbe kitchen, and 
each containing separate light- 
ing and audio- visual controls, 

enabling the complex to be 
used for lectures and seminars. 

Those with sharp eyes will 
appreciate the detailing - the 
use of woodjn handsome solid 
doors, in panelling, and details 
such as the ribbed panels in 
the front hall which frame the 
pictures, echoed in the fluting 
at the top of the pillars, 
replacing the more convention- 
al acanthus leaves. 

For Trollope and Colls, 
theoon tractors, it bas been “an 
interesting job” - two con- 
tracts, one on top of another, 
die one being Aw an office 
building, the other for a client 
with a specific purpose, requir- 
ing a very high quality both in 
materials and finishing s, with 
two rather different 
timescales. 

As an exercise in planning, 
it must have been something of 
a nightmare, but they remain 
delighted with the experience, 
and enjoyed working with 
marble, doing the joinery (of 
which there is a great deal) 
and the piaster ceilings, al- 
though as Peter Ponsford, the 
Contracts Manager, points 
out, the plaster ceiling above 
tbe chandelier in the Merck 
Sharpe and Dohne room, v- 
though covered in grime, and * 
more than a little battered, and 
now restored, was actually in 
the Post Office, though practi- 
cally unnoticed in the stam- 
pede to the stamp counter. 

It is nice, says Trollope and 
Colls , to have a client who 
wants the best, and is not only 
willing to pay for it, hot also 
appreciates it

A guide to 
career choice 


A warm welcome from the EEC 


Not enough British graduates are apply- 
ing to join the European Commission, 
the Community** executive civil service. 
This was the message put over by 
Commimion members at meetings held 
recently . in . London, Edinburgh and 
Gudin. Since then I have discovered 
that it isn't only graduates who are slow 
to come forward, bur also ap plican ts 
with A. levels, who are eligible for 
support posts. 

“There is considerable concern at 
Cabinet level about the apparent lack of 
interest* fin the' part of. the British 
graduates to work for the European- 
Community,” said Frances Smith, a 
principal administrator within the Dirac- 
torate. -'•Genera- for' Personnel and 

Administration. 

As the Commission is a European 
organisation, there are. no national 
quotas, but an effort is made to ensure 
that the reserve list contains a fair spread 
of nationalities. This is sometimes 
difficulrto 'accomplish when you learn - 
that only 2.6 pear cent of the applicants 
for the last open competition for lawyers 
at A level were British. There are quotas 
for the “stages” or traineeships open to 
new graduates, which last three to five 
months. The British are allocated about 
25 places, eactr half year, but the average 
takeup is only 16 to 17. 

Why are the British seemingly so 
reluctant to work in Europe? To some 
Qdent.it .may be due to lack of 
mfonnatioh about the recruitment pro- 
cedures: In other instances, the problem 
is that for the A7 and LA 7 competitions - 

Th^re is scant information 
on EEC entry procedures 

(administrative and linguist posts) grad- - 
cates most have at least two years' work 
experience. As one careers adviser at the 
London meeting commented, “We are 
dealing with people who are applying for 
ameers positions and we are expected to 
sa& ‘'Oh,, by the way, don't forget to 
apply to the EEC after working for a year 
orscL” It is a rather odd thing to have to 
say.”-What can also be offputtmg is the 
length of the procedure. From applying 
for a' competition to getting a job can ' 
take. anythmg from IS months to two 
years. ; 

_ Jbe main competitions at A Grade are 
in general administration, law and. 
econoipic&, with occasional competi- 
tkrasfor agriculturists, agricultural ecoa-“ 
omists. -computer experts, scientists, . : 
engineers, ^nuclear inspectors, etc, In •; 
forthcoming competitions, a degree in 
any discipline will probably be accept- 
able for . entry to any competition. It will 
be possible, for instance, to enter for an 
economics competition with a degree in 
biofogy, if you feel' you can answer the' 
specialised questions. 

It may take time to get into the 
Commission, but, . once appointed, 
young entrants can find themselves 
undertaking considerable responsibility. 
Gne foiriy recent entry has become the 
Commission's expert on hops, and Chris 
Boyd^ an economist who joined only a 
few years ago, found himself involved 


There is concern over 
the lack of response from 
UK graduates to join the 
European Commission. 
Joan Llewelyn Owens 
looks at the reasons for 
this flagging enthusiasm 



with the Monetary Committee and the 
■ realignment of the franc. Chris entered at 
grade A7, after taking a PhD and 
working as a research assistant in a 
university near Brussels. 

'Since 1983 it has also been possible for 
graduates without work experience to 
enter at the AS assistant administrator 
grade. This means that new graduates 
may apply, but their degree must not be 
more than three years old at the time of 
the publication of the competition. 

in that same year, it was also decided 
to admit graduates to the competition for 
B grade '-officials, who give general 
administrative support to A grade staff 
and work on research m particular areas 
which can be used in the formation of 
policy. Hitherto, entry to competitions 
for this grade was restricted to holders of 
a minimum of two A levels, with two 
years’ work experience, who are still the 
main source of candidates. Some doubt 
was expressed at the .London meetiqg 
about the wisdom of encouraging gradu- 
ates^ join at this grade, as they might 
find themselves over-qualified and frus- 
trated. They were also warned that 
transfers from the B grades to A grade 
were the exception rather than tfae.rule. 

One of the entry requirements for any 
competition is a second .lan guage. But, 
except when recruiting interpreters and 
translators, the Commission is not 
looking for brilliant linguists^ O or A 
level French is quite adequate for the 
oral competition, and can be brushed up 
later. 

When we come to translator and 
interpreters, they need fluency in at least 
two Community languages other than 
Portuguese or Spanish. Bui it's no good 
being good at languages if you cannot 


write English well. At LA7 grade, 
translators should have some expertise 
in areas such as law. economics, science- 
technology. while recent graduates with 
out such expertise can enter at LA8, as an 
assistant translator. 

Graduates not more than 30 years old, 
without a qualification in either transla- 
tion or interpretation, may apply at LA8 
grade for the EEC’s accelerated training 
course for conference interpreters. They 
must be able to express themselves 
freely, dcariy and accurately in public 
and be well informed on current affairs, 
particularly economics and politics. 
Experienced interpreters enter their own 
competitions. 

These open competitions (written and 
oral) are not held on a regular basis, but. 
are advertised in (he national press and 
in the official Journal of the European 
Communities, and the specialist press 
when appropriate. The next A and B 
grade general competitions should be 
advertised before the end of the year, B 
grade probably in September-October, 
and A grades (A8 and A7/6) in 
November-December. There should also 
be an A7 competition for agricultural 
economists. 

Ail British candidates who meet the 
basic requirement and are asked to take 
the written test, are generally invited to 
attend a one-day seminar in London, 
organised by the Management and 
Personnel Office of the Civil Service. 
Names of successful candidates go on to 
a reserve list. As and when posts become 


A second language is one 
stipulated requirement 


available candidates are called for a job 
interview, and can expect to receive help 
in finding out about suitable openings 
from official British sources in Brussels. 

The “stagiaires” who spend a few 
months with the Commission should not 
be confused with the assistant adminis- 
trators who join at A 8 grade. The 
“stagiaire” scheme is intended to pro- 
vide a means of finding out about the 
Commission for people who may wish to 
work for it A fair number of those who 
have completed a “stage” do get through 
the competitions later. 

More British are certainly wanted, 
whether as administrators, back-up'staff, 
or as “stagiaires”. They do as well in the 
competitions as any other nationality,

were selected with the French good in Wes

thwan Ewan Pearson and David

to win the Silver Goblets' for the 
third successive year. Redgrave 
is selected in the top half of the 
Diamonds' draw io meet the 
only other selection. Bjorn 
Eltang. of Denmark- The only- 
two selections in the Silver 
Goblets' are the obvious ones. 

There are. wisely, no selec- 
tions in the Queen Mother 
Challenge Cup which will be 
contested tv seven domestic 
entries and the Prince Philip 
which has attracted to Henley 
an entry from Poland for the 
first time in M years. 

The four selected crews in the 
Ladies' Challenge Plate arc ihe 
two Harvard University eight 
and the Irish Club crews of 
Garda Siochana (who looked 
good in West Germany last 
weekend) and Neptune who 
chased their Irish police 
compatriots hard at 


Unfortunately, the two Har- 
vard University crews have 
been drawn in the top half of the 
draw and. if they prosper, will 
meet in the semi-final rounds, as 
indeed, will the Irish crews. But 


have the formidable task of tfcrc is a long slog ahead and 
me ji ns u ^^^W, lW n.ihe some useful looking challenges 


evenL The West Germans came 
dose to breaking the six-minute 
barrier in East Berlin recently, 
but were just beaten twice. 

While Steve Redgrave, of 


from the United States. 

Four of the 4% places in the 
draw for the Thames Cup were 
selected and separated accord- 
ingly. They are London Rowing

and Imperial College in the 
bottom half of the draw. This

By George Ace 

Two of the most powerful 
voices io Irish rugby have left no 
one in doubt about feelings 
regarding the recent rebel tour 
by New Zealanders to South 
Africa. The new president uf the 
Irish Rugby Football Union, Sir 
Ewart Bell, at the annual meet- 
ing of the onion, asked; “Are we 
going to allow oor game to be 
destroyed because a eoantry 
deems it necessary to offer 
inducements to players to tour 7* 

The outgoing president, Des- 
mond McKfbbin, said that he 
regretted the invitation to play- 
ers without consaltation with 
their unions. The IRFU has, 
consequently, amended then- 
laws to clear up any loop-holes 
that existed with regard to 
players going on toms overseas

• New South Wales over- 
whelmed Argentina 30-18 as 
halfbacks. Nick Farr Jones and 
Stephen James, ran the visitors 
ragged after Hugo Porta was 
carried off with a groin injury. 


In 1981 Ireland defied govern- 
ment wishes to undertake a four- 
week torn- of South Africa, but 
now, so far as the Irish are 
concerned, Sonth Africa has 
gone a long way down the road 
towards ostracising itself from 
any future contact with Inter- 
national Rugby Board countries 
In die northern hemisphere. 

Mick Doyle continues as coa- 
ch, but Jim Donaldson and 
Willie John McBride are re- 
placed by Niall Jackson and 
John Morouey as selectors. 

• Scotland moved closer to 
other rugby-playing countries in 
approving substitutes for club 
games played in the McEwans 
National Leagues next season 
(Ian McLauchlan writes). The 
motion to have replacements in 
all games Called to achieve the 
necessary two thirds majority, 
but the motion put forward by 
West of Scotland and Edinburgh 
Academicals to cover national 
league matches was passed

l league when the annual meeting 
of the Rugby League was held at 
Blackburn on Saturday. 

A proposal that the first 
division should be reduced from 
16 clubs to 14 was passed, 
though it was only by the 
minimum majority 

Two proposals were defeated. 

EQUESTRIANISM 

British team 
riders in 
action again 

Altfaoagh they returned from 
France only last night, all four 
members of the British team for 
next week’s world showjumping 
championships are competing at 
The Royal Show which starts 
today at Stoneleigh in Warwick- 
shire (Jenny (VlacArrbor 
writes). The four riders — Mal- 
colm Pyrah, John and Michael 
Whitaker and Nick Skelton — 
have been giving their top horses 
an ooting at the French Nations 
Cap meeting as part of their 
build-up to the championships. 

This week they will ride their 
“second string" horses, al- 
though in most cases this is of 
little comfort to their rivals. 
John Whitaker has Ryan's Son. 
winner of the King George V 
Cap at the Royal International 
last month: bis brother, Mi- 
chael, has the fast and consis- 
tent Next Court-way. Pyrah will 
be relying on Toroeriands Fire 
Fox and Skelton on Raffles 
Airborne, who had a particularly 
happy outing at Lincoln earlier 
in the month where they won the 
area international trial. 

The main show jumping event 
« Thursday's BSJA national 
championship, sponsored by Ev- 
erest Doable Glazing, In which 
Refer Richardson wiU be trying 
for a second successive win on 
Foxwood, an 1 1 -year-old former 
event horse, who was runner-up 
in the Grand Prix at the Royal 
International. « 


Other successful proposals 
also favoured the big clubs. The 
levy on attendances and 
contributions to the Cup pool 
both go down, and the share of 
the gate at the Wembley Cup 
final for the competing clubs 
goes up from 10 per cent of the 
gate to IS per ce nt. 

MOTORCYCLING 

Gardner closes 
gap as 

Lawson slips 

The Dutch TT at Assen on 
Saturday marked the half-way 
point of the world champion- 
ships (Michael Scott writes). It 
may prove to be a watershed in 
another way, for Wayne 
Gardner’s victory and Eddie 
Lawson's failure lo finish has 
put a new complexion on the 
title chase. 

Lawson, winner of his last 
four races, had. appeared invin- 
cible. On Saturday, he held pole 
position on his Marlboro- 
Yamahah. but failed to com- 
plete the first lap, a rare mistake 
at a bend putting him off the 
bike and out of ihe race. 

With Lawson out, Gardner 
I took his Rothmans Honda to 
the front, overtaking Ron 
Haslam, the Briton, on the 
second lap. 

The Australian's victory lifted 
him to within eight points of 
Lawson in the championship 
table. Rob McElnea, Lawson's 
Bnush team-mate, was also left 
lickini his wounds. After hold- 
ing third place for most of the 
race, he hit a seagull and was 
slowed by back-markers, allow- 
ing Mwe Baldwin, ofihe United 
Maws, to pounce on the final

That final remark is surely 
the understatement of the year 
because the manner in which 
Shahrastani stretched his ad- 
vantage once he took the lead 
left little doubt that he ocnld 
have completed another circuit 
of the track and still have been 
dear. 

As a competitive horse race 
the Irish Derby fell below the 
standard expected of it but 
still provided a superb setting 
fora tap-class thoroughbred to 
put on the style. 


with breathtaking ease he had 
opened np an eight-length 
margin by the winning post 

Bonhomie, previously suc- 
cessful in the King Edward 
VII Stakes at Ascot held on 
well to take second prize with 
Bakharoff Just beating 
Mashkour by a neck for the 
third pladng. 

For the first time since 1967, 


From start to finish only no Irish runner readied the 
three horses showed iu front first four with Mr John (fifth) 


UUCC UVI3W auiifiMi Ml mwm, iudi — *■ — - J" ' 

with Bakharoffs stablemate doing best of the locals without 
Ostensible setting a measured ever looking a potential win- 


gallop from the beginning. In 
tbs opinion of Pat Eddery the 
pace was not strong enough to 
expose any possible weakness 
in the favourite and a full five 
furlongs from home he drove 
Bonhomie past Ostensible and 
thereafter the tempo was con- 
siderably stepped up. 


There was also a measure of 
doubt expressed about the 
venue for the next appearance 
of Shahrastani. Michael 
Stoute said that he had lost a 
good deal of weight in the 
aftermath of his Epsom suc- 
cess and that he would have to 
wait until he saw how be came 
out of both the Curragh race 
and the travelling before deter- 
mining whether he would said 
him to Ascot next mouth for 
the King George VI and Queen 
Elizabeth Diamond Stakes. 

Taking a line through 
Mashkour, he has demonstra- 
bly made a lot of improvement 
In recent weeks and ft is 
certainly hard to visualise any 
of his contemporaries, apart

six years that Michael Stoute -w 
has turned out the winner of 


the premier Irish classic and 
coincidentally all three win- 
ners commenced with the let- 
ters “SH". 

Walter Swinburn had been 


The only other future classic 
pointer to emerge from this 
race centred upon the remark 
of Pat Eddery that Bonhomie 
“was more a St Leger type”. 


Sneak Preview steals the show 


Sneak Preview, heavily sup- 
ported from 11-2 to 4-1 
favourite, proved a worthy mar- 
ket leader for Saturday's New- 
castle Brown Ale 
Northumberland Plate. The six- 
year-old gelding battled home to 
win by two lengths from 
NewseUs Park. Sneak Preview 
gave Henry Candy, the 
Kingsfone Warren trainer, his 
first winner on the course. 

Simon Whitworth, the win- 
ning rider, who was having his 
first ride far Candy , pounced 


inside the final furlong from the 
weakening Newseils Park. 

Whitworth said: “I was al- 
ways sure I would win despite 
getting into a little trouble when 
it looked as though I was going 
to get boxed in.” 

Candy said: “ I have not yet 
derided where Sneak Preview 
runs next. After completing this 
treble he will have to have a rest 
for a while. “He really is a 
character,” 

Clive's Brittain's Hadeer who 
ran badly in the Royal Hum 


Cup. performed much better in 
the Van Geest Criterion Stakes 
at Newmarket on Saturday. 

The four-year-old made the 
running for the South African 
rider Michael Roberts, and only 
surrendered the lead in the last 
SO yards when John Dunlop's 
Mister Wonderful came with a 
perfectly timed nut under Tony 
Ives. 

Mister Wonderful beat Nino 
Bibbia by one and a half lengths 
with the 5-2 favourite Brave 
Owen third. 


When Pal Eddery partnered 
Jeremy Tree's newcomer / ' 
to a fluent victory at Lin_ __ 
.Park on Friday it was the 
Beckham pton trainer's tenth 
winner from his last 12 runners. 

With his stable in such 
outstanding form, it should pay 
to follow Tree at Windsor's 
evening meeting where he has 
high hopes of another success 
with his course and distance 
Esdale in the Knightsbridge 
Stakes. 

Esdale started his three-year- 
old career with a promising 
second to the subsequent Derby 
fifth, Nisnas, at Kempt on before 
fading to finish seventh behind 
Allez Milord at Newmarket at 
the beginning of May. 

At the Lime that performance 
must have disappointed his 
connections, but it transpired 
that this talented half-brother to 
Escaline had been badly affected 
by a vims, prevalent in Tree's 
yard. 

Esdale soon pot matters right 
in his next race, at the Berkshire 
course, where he comfortably 
beat Nilambar by two lengths 
and the Fabulous Dancer coll is 
napped to continue his winning 
ways at the expense of another 
recent scorer Temple Walk. 

Tree also saddles his two- 
year-old Ajanac for the Derry's 
Bacon Stakes. This fellow 
showed plenty of speed on his 
first public appearance when 
seventh of 16 behind Domino 
Fire at Goodwood earlier this 
month, but preference is for 
Locianaicx, who is dropped 
considerably in class after 
finishing a respectable fifth be- 
hind Carol's Treasure in the 
Windsor Castle Stakes at Royal 
Ascot. 

Pat Eddery, riding at the peak 
of bis form just now, looks 
booked for two more winners 
with the promising Sandown 
Park runner-up Sauce Diable in 
the E.B.F.Mart>fe Arch Maiden 
Stakes and Neville Callaghan's 
consistent Chummy's Pet in the 
Jack Barclay Handicap. 

Lord Porchestefs filly Sauce 
Diable looks a safer proposition 
than the Henry Cecil repre- 
sentative. Misk, who was an 
expensive failure on his debut at 
Yarmouth. 

Ben Hanbury’s Weshauun, 
who gallantly chased home the 
much-improved Moon Mad- 
ness at Royal Ascot, should be 
rewarded in the Derry Pro- 
visions Handicap, although his 
main rival. Coinage, registered a 
20-length victory at Beverley 
last time out.

Chummy's Put, one of Pat Eddery’s fancied mounts at Windsor. 


Eddery also has some attrac- 
tive mounts at Nottingham 
during the afternoon and one 
that particularly catches the eye 
is James Toller’s Batdeaxe in 
the Ginger Tom Maiden Auc- 
tion Stakes. After finishing a 
dose third behind Singing Ste- 
ven at Bath, this Kampala colt 
was beaten iust over four lengths 
by Carol's Treasure when fourth 
in the Windsor Castle Stakes, 
and today's modest event surely . 
looks within his compass. 

Michael Stoute, fresh from bis 
Irish Derby success with 
Shahrastani, should be on the 
mark in the EB.F Daybrook 
Stakes with Lord Collins, who 
shaped nicely behind the odds- 
on Midyan at Yarmouth 
recently. 

Potykratis, after his excellent 
show against Last Tycoon in the 
King-'s Stand Stakes at the royal 


meeting, can land the Home 
Ales Gold Tankard Handicap, 
while Paul Cole's youngster 
Rattier Homely is fancied to step 
up on her Ascot third in the 


Starting Gate Maiden Stakes. 
Finally, at Edinburgh John 


Winter's Princely Estate, after 
three consecutive seconds, 
including a good effort behind 
the smart Fleeting Affair at 
Brighton, can gain an overdue 
success, in the Bass Rock 
Maiden Stakes. 


Swinburn scores on Swink 


Walter Swinburn, fresh from 
his triumph 24 hours earlier on 
Shahrastani in the Budweiser 
Irish Derby, completed a great 
weekend by winning the Grand 
prix de Paris at Longchamp 
yesterday on Swink, who is 
trained- by the French-based 
Englishman, Jonathan Pease, 
(Our French Racing Correspon- 
dent writes). 

Swink had never previously 
won a race but he stayed on 
most gallantly after taking a 
narrow lead off the John Dun- 


lop-trained War Hero (Tony 
Ives) 300 yards out There was 
just a short head in it at the line 
with the fast finishing Silver 
Word a short neck away in third. 

BaiTIamont just got the better 
of FitnahTn a good finish to the 
‘ Prurcrispahan. 


Tommy Way (Brent Thom- 
son) turned the group two Quick 
Hansa Prcis at Hamburg into a 


Hansa Prcis at Hambuig into a 
procession yesterday. He made 
all the running to score by 6 V 2 
lengths from Konigstraum.

OlScSOOnret 

Sflanos and 
over his progress np 

longer disiance have 
the kittle race 

Championships, for which tb« 
is still criritism coming from 
aeve Cram, toe 
taken over toe rrcortHjrcakinB 
from Ovett and Sebastian 

But Oven now finds himsett 
in a tvptcal "pressure 
onfy does he haveiob^t ^ve 
Lewis tonight in order W cfamn 
the last place in toe Comm cm- 
wealth team, but d«®oe wk« 
■on a broader sigmftcaiux: with 
the pankipauon of 
Coghlan. already one ot me 
European favourites. 

Coghlan has been consistently 
beaten by Ovett over one mile 
and 1.500 metres during the ha 
decade, including toe *y{o 
E uropean 1.300 "*»»“■ 
Prague, where Ovett took gold 
and Coghlan toe silver medal. 

But Coghlan has the advan- 
tage of having moved up to 

5.000 metres three years ago, 
and winning the inaugural 
championship. The three sec- 
onds margin by which Coghlan 
won his 3,000 metres in San 
Jose three weeks agek compared 
to Ovett's victory in Finland last 
Thursday, is negligible.. 

Far more telling tonight may 
be the fact that CogMan's last 
mile in San Jose was oavered in 
around 4roin Ssec. If Coghlan 
can do that off a relatively fast 
pace tonight, Ovett is going to be 
stretched, but he should still 
j beat Lewis and wm his 
Commonwealth place. 

But Cram’s comments after 
| running 3:51.5, the fastest mile 
j in the world this year, in 
Gateshead on Friday will still be 
valid. Cram extended his criti- 
cism of Coe and Oven _ for 
missing toe AAA Champion- 
ships to their deliberately miss- 
ing the England match in 
Gateshead. That same night, 
Coe ran a 1,500 metres race in 
the Netherlands in 3:34.32. also 
the fastest of the year. That will 
have earned him his Common- 
wealth place, and having 
changed to 800 metres in Stock- 
holm tomorrow night, he should 
also ensure that place for 
Edinburgh. 

Allan Wells, another of 
Britain's gold medal winners 
from toe start of toe decade, has 
bean given enormous leeway by 
the Scottish selectors for Edin- 
burgh. He has not run a 100 
metres since toe Los Angeles 
Gaines two years ago and 
tonight must be his last chance 
to prove form against three of 
the Americans who ran against 
him. 

Zola Budd*s conqueror from 
this race last year. Darlene 
Beckfbrd, cannot be in Belfast 
tonight. Which is just as well for 
her, since Miss Budd is in vastly 
superior form to this point last 
year. Although she faces Lynne 
Williams, third in the Olympic 

3.000 metres — in which Miss 
Budd finished seventh — the 
youngster beat the Canadian 
consistently last summer and 
should do so again over 3.000 
metres in what is the best ever 
programme for the Dale Farm 
Games.

Americans set 
record after 
two lost days 

By Barry PfckthaQ 


With the arrival of three more 
yachts in Newport. Rhode Is- 
land. at the end of the Garisberg 
two-handed transatlantic race 
over the weekend, the most 
extraordinary performance to 
date has been achieved by Joe 
Colpitt and Jody Culbert, two 
American sailors, aboard Tran- 
sient. one of the smallest entries 
in the fleet 


Their 35 ft trimaran crossed 
the finish line at 14.13 GMT on 
Saturday, to not only take nine Z 
honours in class six bnt beat all 
their larger rivals in classes five, ~ 
four and three, despite losing ■ 
two days after the start by calling * 
into port on three occasions to ^ 
repair their saiL Once those 
problems were overcome, bow- ; 
ever, they .went on to set a new 


record for their class of 20 days 3 
hours 13 minutes, more than 
two days and five hours inside 
toe previous best lime set by 
Mark Gatehouse and Mike 
Holmes, of Britain, during the 
previous two -handed race in 
1982. 


Joe Colpitt. toe skipper, who 
built the Newick-designed tri- 
maran three years ago, was as 
surprised as everyone at their 
performance, for equipped with 
only a hand-bdd radio and VHF - 
radio-direction finder, they had J, 
not been able to keep in touch ■ 

with toe outside world for much 

of the 3,000-mile voyage. In- 
deol the last time radio control 
had received their position was . JtT: 
eight days before their arrival. 

Another to finish' on Saturday " 
was Robert Nickerson's 60 ft ' 
manojinil. Cherry Valley 
Superduck, which limped across " 
toe line- eight hours behind ■■ 
l ransiem with a fractional bal- " 
fast tank, badly flexing hull and 
ngging to take 10th 

place.

CRICKET 


Gatting wields the whip 
over New Zealand 
with cracking century 


SWREtr&TFJi 


LORD'S Middlesex lead 
a jVfir Zealanders bv 172 runs 
Jb with 3 wickets in hand 

A delightful innings of 135 
by Mike Gatling helped Mid- 
dlesex to their biggest total of 
the summer against the New 
Zealanders yesterday. From 
the way he batted, full of 
confidence, one would never 
have thought this was bis 
opening first-class century this 
season; indeed, his only score 
of note. 

The England captain's pre- 
vious best score this season 
was 43 and it can be no 
coincidence that Middlesex 
have had such a poor start in 
the championship. He was 
missed on 54 at deep mid-off, 
- swinging the bat freely as he 

* did throughout his innings 
which lasted 262 minutes and 
included two sixes and 15 
fours. 

There was another good 
Sunday gate — not quite the 
five figure attendance of a 
fortnight ago here, but a big 
enough crowd to make the 
New Zealanders feel appreci- 
ated. Middlesex helped by 
picking their best available 
team, other than resting Dan- 

Return of 
> prodigious 
Gavaskar 

By Alan Gibson 

Taunton: The Indians with 
two first innings wickets in hand 
were 261 ahead of Somerset 
when bad light stopped play on 
the second of this three-day 
match. 

The day's play was much 
interrupted by the weather, but 
what there was of it was 
dominated by the Indians, and 
principally by Gavaskar. This 
did not altogether displease the 
Somerset crowd, for after all he 
was once, briefly, one of their 

* own. 

Overnight, the score was 205 
for 3 and early morning 
thunderstorms delayed the start, 
without really lightening the 
atmosphere, as we had hoped it 
might When it rained again in 
the afternoon, the Indians were

iel. This now includes Miller, 
whose 56 in 187 minutes was 
full of promise. He shared in a 
1 15-run partnership with his 
captain when he was caught at 
silly mid-off. pushing forward 
at BraceweiL 

After lunch, taken at the 
strange time of 2. 1 5, Gatling 
took the attack to the spinners. 
Gray, bowling with economy 
of run-up and aciion. bowled 
tidily before 33 were taken off 
what were to be the last three 
overs of his spelt Gatling, 
having reached his 100 with 
the second of three successive 
boundaries, twice lifted him 
for six over extra-cover. 

It would, though, be templ- 
ing providence to say that on 
this form and pitch, the New 
Zealanders' attack looks in- 
nocuous. The Indians ap- 
peared to be just that at 
Canterbury last month, but 
that was before the Tests 
began. It is hard to think 
Gatting will bat in such inhib- 
ited fashion next rime he faces 
this bowling at Lord's. 

Radley was a subdued part- 
ner in a third wicket stand of 
101. scoring 25 to Gatling's 
75. It ended when Gatting was

Lord at Lord's: Gatting sweeps to 135 (photograph: Peter Llewellyn) 



Jane ForresL a Lancashire 
lass of 28. played brilliantly and 
bravely 10 win the Volmac 
Dutch Women's Open 
championship at Hilversum 
yesterday. When her Iasi putt 
died, appropriately Tor another 
birdie, she had completed 3 
round of 70. two under par. and 
a tournament total of 282. six 
under par. 

Mis Forrest beat Liseloite 
Neumann, of Sweden (71). by 
the handsome margin of five 
strokes. Diana Chudzinski. or 
West Germany (68). by six, and 
two Scots. Gillian Stewart (72T 
and Catherine Pamon [721. by 
seven, ft was Mrs Forrest’s first 
victory in a 72-hole eveni since 
becoming a professional in 1979 
and her prize of £6.750 was 
£4.250 more than she had 
previously won. 

Although she had a cushion of 
four strokes to start the day 
with, the result of a dazzling 66 
on Saturday. Mrs Forrest was 
immediately put on the rack. 
She played the first hole badly, 
took seven and suddenly found 
herself only one ahead as Laura 
Dav ies chipped and putted for a 
birdie four. 


Miss Davies soon pressed the 
self-destruct button, as a woman 
of her raw power is api to do on 
a tight course like Hilversum. 
and" the gifted Miss Neumann 
emerged as the one force to be 
feared. She was now two behind, 
but shortly to be three behind 
when she took five at the third 
and soon to be five behind when 
Mrs Forrest stunningly holed a 
wedge shot from 80 yards for an 
eagle three at the seventh. 

Mrs Forrest is only five feet 
three inches but she walked tall 
down the l8lh fairway, wel- 
comed by the sort of acclama- 
tion that greets Ballesteros or 
Nicklaus at Si Andrews. She 
chipped to five feet holed the 
pull and dissolv cd into the arms 
of her caddy. Happily, he hap- 
pens to be her husband.

Catching win for Hampshire Spin the destroyer 

as Sussex lose 


By Peter M arson 


Hampshire's triumph agaitist 
Worcestershire, whom they beat 
by nine wickets at New Road 
yesterday, was their fifth 
successive victory in six 
matches, and, quite apart from 
lhe encouragement that that will 
bring Nicholas and his team, it 
represented also a progressive 
stride forward, skirting Essex on 
the way, to joint leadership of 
the John Player Special League, 
a position they share with 
Northamptonshire and Not- 
tinghamshire. Hampshire's tar- 
get had been a modest ooe of 
1 S3, and in cruising home in 
37.4 overs. Terry made 78 not 
out, and Nicholas. 62 not out 
Thai Worcestershire had 
found run-making in their in- 
nings to be a difficult exercise 
was as much a tribute to 
Hampshire's bowlers, as to the 
backing of a keen field where six 
catches had assisted in the fall of 


eight wickets. Curtis, who had 
been Worcestershire's prop was 
run out as he sought to free 
himself of the bowlers* grip, and 
Hick and Patel suffered a simi- 
lar fate after they had got off to a 
decent start. Cowley's off spin 
bowling brought him three 
wickets for 33, while Connor 
picked up three, also, for 54. 

Nottinghamshire were loo 
good for Leicestershire at Grace 
Road, and won comfortably by 


an order for Glamorgan, who 
were beaten by 94 runs. 

Glamorgan had chosen to 
field first and they moved off on 
the right foot when Benson fell 
to Ontong's catch olT Hickey's 
bowling wjth the score on two. 
But. lhe next wicket was a long 
lime coming and with Hinks 
settling in before forcing the

ers Cowdrey went off at a great 
pace towards a big total. Hinks

HASTINGS: Sonhamptonshirc 
l-fpnl beat Sussex by 88 runs. 

Northamptonshire, with their 
fifth successive win. became 
joint leaders in the John Player 
League with this emphatic vic- 
tory. Rather unusually for the 
competition, they owed every- 
thing to their two spinners. 

Cook 3nd Harper, who shared 
seven wickets between them. 

Sussex. who were without Imran 
Khan, have now lost four 
matches, and their own chal- 
lenge has faded. 


in front of the sightscrcen. 
Lamb, who received what can 
be described as a s> m pa thy clap, 
faced six balls before he was was 
beaten as he played back to 
Babington. 

Harper made some assertive 
strokes and scored 43 of 63 
added in 14 overs with Capel. 
before he was bowled by Reeve. 
Capel always found it hard work 
and was caught at deep mid-off | 
in the last over. Sussex always 
bowled tightly and their fielding 
was never less Lhan alert. 


At half past three, play started 
again. Gavaskar and 
Azharuddin moving reasonably 
through the afternoon. Without 
Gamer. Botham, and Richards, 
as they are in this match. 
Somerset relied heavily on the 
steadfast Marks, who came in 
for some clouting from 
Gavaskar. but bowled 
Azharuddin with an unusual 
faster ball, at 289. 

Tea was taken at 5. 1 Opm, with 
l the weather still cloudy and 
oppressive. Gavaskar was 86. 
every run cheered by the youth- 
ful TauntoRians. They have had 
their heroes, not all of them 
Somerset-born, from Sam 
Woods, to Vivian Richards, but 
none. I think, has been more 
afTcctionailyheld in esteem than 
Gavaskar. 

Pandit and Binney were out 
soon afterwards, and Somerset 
were contemplating an awkward 
second innings. The pitch has 
played pretty well so £u\ but the 
weather and its effects arc 
unpredictable. Gavaskar went 
to a warmly welcomed hundred 
in the evening.

Nonham ptonshire's innings 
was slow 10 get into its stride, 
and for a time the match took 
second place to several other 
topics being discussed around 
lhe Central Ground. Imran 
Khan's failure to arrive in time 
visibly disappointed boih the 
crowd and his learn mates. 
Imran was delayed by traffic 
jams on a journey from London. 
Sussex have accepted his 
explanation and they do not 
intend to lake any disciplinary 
action. 

Local members, meanwhile, 
remain dismayed that the devel- 
opers. who have long wanted to 
create a shopping precinct on 
this3ncicniground. finally seem 
to have won iheir battle. By 
1990 cricket is expected to be 
staged elsewhere in lhe town. 
The present ground, nestling 
beneath the ruins of Hastings 
Castle, on which so much 
cricket history has been made, 
will be no more. 

Finally, or course, Larkins 
and Lamb, the one slightly 
amazed, and the oiher dearly 
disappointed, were the focus of 
Press attention following the 
announcement of England's 
Test team. On the field Larkins 
played some good strokes before 
he lofted a drive, and was held 


With the bat. though, it was a 
different story, and the Sussex 
innings was an abject affair.

By Mike Berry 

Bermuda strive 10 avoid 
elimination from the ICC Tro- 
phy in today's final round of 
qualifying group games in the 
Midlands — their match against 
the Netherlands at Smethwick 
holding the key to who joins 
Zimbabwe. Denmark and The 
Netherlands in the semi-finals. 

Victory for Bermuda will 
ensure their qualification on 
run-rate over the United States, 
but defeat in whai is justifiably 
billed as their most important 
match for years, would see the 
US go through instead. 

Interest in the game in Ber- 
muda is intense, with 15.000 of 
a population of 55.000 being 
attracted 10 the annual two-day 
Cup match between teams 
representing the eastern and 
western ends of the island. As 
losing semi-finalists in 1 979 3nd 
runners-up in 1 982. their failure 
to reach the last four, even 
though they opted for a much 
younger louring party this lime 
in comparison 10 previous 
events, will be received with 
profound disappointment back 
home. 


Clayton Butterfield, their 
dignified tour manager, admits; 
“Most of Bermuda will be on 
edge loday awaiting news. It's a 
tough game, but we know what 
u-e have lo do and are confident 
that we are capable of producing 
IL” 

Another game with lesser 
significance, but one which will 
surely stimulate similar compet- 
itive ness. throws together 
Gibraltar and Israel.

SPEEDWAY 

Splendid effort 
from five 
British riders 

Five British riders gave a 
great boost to speedway in this 
country yesterday when they 
reached the Inter Continental 
final of the world individual 
championship at the Overseas 
final at Coventry (Keith 
Macklin writes). 

Nine riders flaalified. The five 

Britons were Jeremy Doncaster 
( Ipswich L Neil Evicts < Brad- 
ford). Marvyn CtXK (Oxford), 
Chris Morton (Belle Voe) and 
Kelvin Tatum (Coventry). 

The Overseas championship 
went to Sam Ermolenko. the 
American who rides for Wolver- 
hampton- Ermolenko was 
beaten only once hi recording 14 
points. Doncaster came second 
with 12 and Evitts third with 11. 
The achievement of the British 
riders was considerable after a 
disappointing season- 

The final takes place at 
Bradford on July 20-

John Yeoman played one in

Wallace gears 
up for the 
Lotus finale 

Zandvoort — In the most 
exci 1 1 ng race of the season 
yesterday. Britain’s Andy Wal- 
lace drew further ahead in his 
quest for the Lotus British S3 
championship at Zandvoort (a 
Special Correspondent writes). 
Wallace started from lhe front 

row of the grid, having taken his 
sixth pole position of the season. 
A mistake by Wallace's main 
rival, the Brazilian. Mauri zio 
Sandro Said, promoted Britain's 

Julian Bailey into the lead ofan 
S3 race for the first time. 
Graham Hill's son. Damon, was 
second at one stage but dropped 
away with a half spin. 

Wallace now leads the 
championship wiih 70 points to 
SaJa's 66- but the struggle is Gr 
from over. There are still seven

THE TIMES MONDAY JUNE 30 -1986 


TENNIS: FINE WEATHER HAS BROUGHT THE TACTICIANS OF TOUCH PLAY TO THE FORERtONT AT WIMB» BOON 

Pernfors can put Becker in spin Terribl y 


By Rex Bellamy, Tennis Correspondent 


A dry Wimbledon is usually 
a good one. That has certainly 
ban true this year. Two 
obvious effects have con- 
cerned bounce and pace. The 
bounce is always more consis- 
tent when the courts arc dry 
rather than damp and slick 

it has also been gratifying - 
for everyone except the 
ground sta ff and players total- 
ly committed to the “big 
game” — to observe the 
spreading beige of worn 
courts. When the wp begins to 
go. the ball takes a better grip 
because of the additional fric- 
tion. Ask any spin bowler. 
Another consequence of the 
dry courts is that most players 
have less difficulty than usual 
in staying on their feet. 

But for all this, would such 
charming tacticians as Milo- 
slav Mecir and Mikael Pem- 
fors have advanced to the last 
16? Would Ramesh Krish- 
nan's fluent shot-making have 
been so effective? Thank 
goodness all three are stjll 
there to entertain us. And in 
the women's event. Raffaefla 
Reggi and Isabelle Demongeot 
have time to play better tennis 
than grass courts usually allow 
them. 

The problem with the 
fourth round, as with every 
preceding round, is that one 
cannot be in two places at 
once. Eric Jelen v Krishnan. 
Mecir v Brad Gilbert, Pernfors 
v Boris Becker, Pat Cash v 
Mats Wifander and Kathy 
Jordan v Chris Lloyd are 
matches that promise feasts of 
tennis, liberally spiced with 
drama. There are German 
1 colleagues who expect Jelen to 
last longer than Becker and 
they may be right 

Becker faltered briefly on 
Saturday when losing the third 
set to Paul McNamec. whose 
mind is as nimble as his feet 
McNamec thought “Becker 
was rattled" - that the stress 
of defending the title was 
affecting him. Becker ex- 
plained that for a few games he 
had been inhibited by a trou- 
blesome Achilles tendon. But 
he added: “Last year I came 
• here as a nobody. This time 1 
came as defending champion. 
It's much harder. Today [ 
could not find a rhythm with 
my returns, so I became 
nervous. I had to try every- 
thing. I had to fight so hard. So 
I became emotional." 

Becker's next opponent 


Pernfors. beat him in the 
French championships, on a* 
much slower surface. One 
could read all kinds of things 
into the fact that Pernfors, in 
his first year of professional 
tennis, should shortly break 
into the top 10. 

It was a joy to see such 
imeresiing players as Mecir 
and Henri Leconte in action 
on adjacent courts. Both won: 
Mecir against the fifth seed, 
Stefan Edberg. Mecir likes 
playing Swedes. In Hamburg 
Iasi Year “The . Big Cat” so 
bamboozled Joakim Nystrom, 
Wilander and Henrik Sund- 
strom ihai at times the crowd 
roared with laughter as the 
Swedes almost knotted their 
legs. On Saturday. Mecir's 
serving was good enough to 
expose what had always 
seemed likely to be Edberg's 
Wimbledon weakness — ser- 
vice returns. 

The paradox about the 
modern Wimbledon seeding 
system is that it rewards 
players for their performances 
on surfaces other than grass. 
So we should not be surprised 
that, of the players seeded to 
reach the last 16 of each 
singles event, only seven men 
and nine women have accom- 
plished the feat. The seeds 
beaten on Saturday^ were 
Edberg and Claudia Kohde- 
Kilsch. who lost five of her 
eight service games against 
Miss Reggi. Even among the 
advancing Germans, there are 
sporadic outbursts of dif- 
fidence. 

When the championships 
began, it was suggested that 
five men and four women had 
some sort of chance. Each 
short list has been reduced by 
one, leaving Ivan Lendl Tim 
Mayotte, Becker, Leconte. 
Martina Navratilova. Chris 
Lloyd and Hana Mandlikova 
to justify or confound one's 
expectations. 

In the men’s event an 
extraordinary dark horse has 
emerged: Cash, aged 21. who 
advanced to (he Wimbledon 
and United States semi-finals 
in 1984 but then had enduring 
problems with his health, lost 
confidence, and — four weeks 
ago — had his appendix out at 
a time when he was also 
learning ihc knack of getting 
up in the night to change 
nappies. But he is beginning to 
look like the Cash of two years 
ago. “It's a big surprise that 



— were 



Hooray Henri: Leconte, the flamboyant Frenchman, during his occasionally out-of-touch, 
often clownish, and Anally brilliant victory over Greg Holmes (Photograph: Chris Smith) 


I've got this far.” he says, “but 
now I have done, there is no 
reason why 1 shouldn't go 
farther.” One merely wonders 
how he will take the strain of a 
five-set match, assuming he 
has to play one. 

This half-term report would 
not be complete without some 
reference to last week's evi- 
dence that to some extent the 
traditional pleasures of the 
championships have been 
compromised in the pursuit of 


wealth. Wimbledon is roomier 
than ti was a decade ago and 
the range of relaxing counter- 
attractions available to the 
public are far greater. Those 
counter-attractions make 
money and most people are 
remarkably tolerant in making 
do without much tennis. At 
the same time they may 
reasonably feel that Wim- 
bledon's well-intentioned talk 
about maintaining traditions 
sounds rather hollow. The 
object of the exercise is play-

Wimbledon is only half-way 
through bui already British 
thoughts have turned to team 
competition. The. 22 home 
representatives who contested 
the two main singles events 
have all been beaten, there are 
Davis Cup and Federation Cup 
matches to come next month, 
and two prominent figures in 
the British game said at the 
weekend that the players need lo 
be more positive. 

The greatest disappointment 
was Jo Durie who. in each of her 
three rounds, made an en- 
couraging start but allowed her 
opponent back into the match. 
Regina Marsikova, of Czecho- 
slovakia. and Nathalie 
Herrcman, of France, were un- 
able to take advantage but 
Dianne BaiestraL the Australian 
who is enjoying her best year 
since changing her name from 
Miss Fromhollz in 19 83, had 12 
years’ experience as a pro- 
fessional lo recognize Miss 
Dune’s doubt and win 5-7. 6-3, 
6-2 on Saturday. 

“She has got to stop being 
frightened of the ball,” Alan 
Jones. Miss Durie’s coach, said 
afterwards. “I know how good a 
player she can be. but she can’t 
refax. She gets too tense and 
then gets panicky and ends up 
being emotionally drained. As 
soon as she starts having some 
fun on court a lot of people are 
going to be surprised at what she 
can do." 

In 1983 Miss Durie reached 
the semi-finals of the French 
and United States Champion- 
ships and rose to No. 5 in the 
world by January. 1984. She had 
two indifferent years ' following 
the death of her father but. 


having fallen to 56th plaice last 
September, she has pulled her- 
self hack - up . to twentieth 
position. ' ■- 'l ; 

Sue Mappin.'the women’s 
national team manager, said it 
was “odd" that Miss Durie bad 
tried to take the pace off the ball 
against a weaker opponent. But 
more demoralizing, she said, 
had been the second-rdund de- 
feat of Sara. Goroer, who had 
held match point against Kristin 
Kinney, of the United Stares, for 
a' chance to pby Martina 
Navratilova. . 

While Miss Mappin named 
Miss Durie. Anne Hobbs and 
Annabel Croft to comprise her 
team for the Federation Cop. to 
be played in Prague from July 20 
to 27. Paul Hutchins, die men's 
team manager.’ makes an 
announcement’ today concern- 
ing Britain's quarter-final Davis 
Cup tie against Australia on 
Court One from July (8 to 20. 

John Lloyd, who for many 
years has .been Britain’s leading 
player among the men. was so 
disappointed by his first-round 
defeat against Cristo Steyn, of 
South Africa, that he said he 
thought he would be “more of a 
liability than a plus” in s&k 
for the tie. Castle's thrilling 
arrival on the scene, therefore, 
with his near- defoaf of the 
second seed, Mats Wilander, 
could hardly have been more 
timely. It will be interesting to 
see if Hutchins is bold enough to 
ramble with the un-tanked 
Briton's panache against what 
promises to be, on the strength 
of this Wimbledon, an Austra- 
lian team bound for the semi- 
finals. • • ' : . .

couple of years, have been in the 
‘engine room of this determined

of being doused by the good life. 

Jn$t recently Carmichael, a 
one-time carpenter known as 
“Nail bags”, has been working 
with Mark Kratzman, the little 
left-hander who took a set off 
Mats WBander on Satmday. 

“Nails has workedreally hard 
and we are finally starting to see 
the benefits," Ruffels said as we 
munched on a barbecued sau- 
sage at a party John Newcombe 
threw at bis rented Wimbledon 
house over the weekend. “There 
was a hiatus in Mark's develop- 
ment. He came through Ntwk’s 
junior training scheme under

Finally, a word of sympathy

Two years ago Bernhard 
Langer, on the eve of Sang 
Ballesteros in . tbe Suntory 
World Match play champion- 
ship, pointed, to the psychologi- 
cal advantage of being a 
Ballesteros, capable of 
intimidating an opponent. 

At the time the West 
German's comments were mis- 
construed in so much as it 
appeared that he was voicing a 
personal vendetta against the 
manner in which Ballesteros 
could psyche out a rivaL ■ 

In truth, that is the case, 
though it should be clearly 
understood that Ballesteros does 
not over-step the mark. He 
simply raises a question mark 
among- his rivals merely by 
applying the pressure by virtue 
of his outstanding virtuosity. 

Jade Nicklaus posseses that 
ability, as he underlined at 
Augusta in April when he 
moved through the last nine 
holes of the US Masters in such 
astonishing fashion that, as 
Ballesteros dropped out. so Tom 
Kite -and Greg Norman were 
unable to respond to Nicfclaus’s 
magic 

Moreover. Raymond Floyd 
employed a reservoir of experi- 
ence to place doubt in the minds 
of such players as Bob Tway and 
Hal Sutton during the US Open

Ballesteros said: “ft win be

has been a difficult year for me, 
especially as mv father died 
before the season began, and I 
am surprised in some respects 
that 1 am enjoying such a good 
season." . 

Ballesteros has now won three 
tournaments in succession ami 
he is leading the Epson Order of 
Merit with £130.010. 

Meanwhile. Sandy Lyle, who

Just reward for Ajala 


By Philip Nkksan 


Halfway through the final of 
the .men's- light middleweight 
category at the British National 
Championships at Crystal Pal- 
ace on Saturday, the favourite, 
Manchester’s. Paul Sheals made 
an ill-considered attempt at a 
sacrifice,, throw, and paid the 
penalty. .... 

His opponent, Paul Ajala, saw 
an outstretched arm and sprang 
on to it, drawing ah instant 
submission. It was an un- 
expected reward after years of 
training by the 25-year-old 
Ajala. who had never won a 
major championship. 

The result has caused a head- 
ache for England team manager, 
Arthur Mapp. He has to decide 


this week on the two fighters in 
each weight category for the 
forthcoming Commonwealth 
Games. 

At least the weekend con- 
firmed the fitness and sharpness 
of the middleweight. Ray Ste-

Argentina — 3 

West Germany... 2 

Argentina, who ended the 
World Cup hopes of England 
in the Azteca Stadium a week 
ago. yesterday claimed the 
crown that they won in their 
own homeland eight years 
ago. They emerged trium- 
phantly from a final in which 
at times their football was as 
dazzling as the occasion. 

A fine header by Brown 
after 23 minutes gave Argenti- 
na the lead. In a hard fought 
first half dominated by mid- 
field play. West Germany had 
more possession but after 
giving away a free-kick they 
saw their goalkeeper. 
Schumacher, fail to intercept 
and Brown had a compara- 
tively easy header. 

Valdano made ft two for 
Argentina early in the second 
half, but the veteran forward, 
Rummenigge, brought the 
Germans new hope with a goal 
which sparked a European 
revival. With ten minutes to 
go, the substitute, Voller. 
scored a dramatic equalizer. 
The drama continued five 
minutes from full-time when 
Burruchaga gave Argentina 
the advantage again. 



The massive arena, a con- 
crete monument bedecked 
with huge decorations which 
might have been designed by 
Steven Spielberg for a futuris- 
tic film, was awash with noise 
and aflame with colour. The 
predomihent hue was white. 
Spectators, even representa- 
tives of the media, had been 
requested to dress in respect of 
the symbol of peace and most 
complied. 

The fluttering of 100,000 


apci Ud|S» UUUIIE UK wwiua 
Viva la Paz “ and of a 
thousand doves, released un- 
der a cloudless sky, provided 
further visual evidence of the 
theme. The capacity audience 
may have been revelling in the 
sunlit carnival but down be- 
low the party was of a more 
serious nature. 

The Germans, in their at- 
tempt to become the first 
Europeans ever to collect the 
trophy on this side of the 
Atlantic, had to achieve an- 
other feat that many were 
beginning to consider was 
equally impossible. To con- 
tain Maradona had over the 
last month seemed no easier 
than catching the wind 

Beckenbauer unveiled bis 
specific formation merely an 
hour before the noon kick-off 
but he surprised no one by 
recalling Berthold, who was 
sent off during the quarter- 
final victory over Mexico. 
Jakobs retained his role as 
sweeper behind a defensive 
line of five but the most 
significant job was given to 
Matthaus. 


The German who had driv- 
en Arncsen to distraction in 
the first round against Den- 
mark was assigned to shadow 
Argentina's captain. No other 
nation is more suitably 
equipped mentally for the 
task. For them, marking 
means to stay not so much 
within spitting distance but 
shoulder to shoulder at ail 
times except during the half 
time period. 

The pair so closely attached 
that they might have been a 
honeymoon couple on the 
dance floor inevitably caught 
the eye. The contest between 
the unforgiving guard and the 
dangerous prisoner was sun; 
to have a heavy effect on the 
less relevant figures around 
them and on the main event 
itself. 

Within 21 minutes the ac- 
tivities of the two of them had 
been noted by the Brazilian 
referee as well. BriegeTs path 
to the Argentinian area was 
blocked illegitimately by 
Brown and. during the pro- 
tracted protests that followed, 
Maradona was booked for 
arguing too vehemently. He 
sank theatrically to his knees 
amid a chorus of whistles. 

Within four minutes he was 
lying in a similar position after 
Matthaus, bemused by his deft 
back heel, had cut him down 
from behind. Matthaus was 
cautioned but his German 
colleagues were instantly to 
pay a much heavier penalty. 
From the free kick near the 
touch line, Argentina went 
ahead. 

Burruchaga. the other less 
recognized diamond in their 
collection, persuaded 
Schumacherlo come out in an 
attempt to gather his curling 
cross. It floated instead over 
his outstretched bands and 
landed firmly on the forehead 
of Brown, Argentina's central 
defender, whose accurate nod 
punctured the unguarded cor- 
ner of the net 

The Germans, who had not 
conceded a goal since leaving 
the first round behind them, 
were scarcely designed for 
such a comparatively early 
set-back. They had planned 


geminian challenge until at 
least the interval and subse- 
quently to rely on rapid 
counter-attacks. 

They had no choice but to 
change their ideas, throw off 
their understandably heavy 
doak of caution and don a 
more adventurous approach. 

Yet, as a result, the Ger- 
mans themselves were more 
susceptible. Bewilderingly 
swift and fluent exchanges, 
invariably involving 
Maradona and Burruchaga, 
threatened to dismantle their 
already crumbling rearguard. 
In order to strengthen their 
front line, Beckenbauer 
brought on Voller, the scorer 
of their second goal against 
France in the semi-final, in 
place of AUofs.

Positive way to take the World Cup 


Mexico City 

Not a great final, until the 
last quarter of an boar when a 
combination of Argentina's 
fragility in defence and West 
Germany's habitual capacity 
to tom their back on the odds 
and come from behind gave the 
match its final Horry of anxi- 
eties and frenzied action. It 
was good for football that the 
team which throughout had 
placed their concentration 

.non nhinnn fmtkall nfUin 


being positive, should be the 
winners, and that they lived 
dangerously at times was all 
the fetter for the spectators. 

It was a final distinguished, 
if by nothing else, by the 
performance of the Brazilian 
referee F3ho, who kept the 
play closer to a correct inter- 
pretation of the laws than 
anyone, if I may be forgiven for 
saying so, since an English- 
man In 1974, when Jack 
Taylor gave a penalty against 
the home team in the first 
minute and they stfil won. If 

we had had such dOigence with 

the whistle, such an under- 
standing of players intent and 
what is and is not (air, we 
would have avoided that awful 
first hoar in Madrid — with 
another Brazilian — while in 
1978 Holland would probably 
have beaten Argentina whose 
gamesmanship was unchecked 
by an Italian. 


Not so now. Of the six 
bookings, five were for dissent 
or time wasting. Ma tth aus was 
booked after only 22 minutes 
when he hacked at 
Maradona's heels well after

the ball had been despatched, 
and that served to restrain the 

lalmtf rannritv for 


intimidation. It was appropri- 
ate that Argentina should go in 
front in the next minute from a 
free kick, for the Germans 
were being a shade too confi- 
dently contempt to get II men 
behind tire ball and hope that 
Argentina would eventually 
ran out of inspiration. 

It was a match also notable 
for the errors of Schumacher, 
Germany's goalkeeper from 
Cologne who likes to think 
hhnsdf the most professional- 
ly prepared, pfayskaDy and 
mentally, in the game. He 
seriously misjudged tire swing 
on Burruchaga’s free kick 
which moved away as it dipped 
into the six-yard line, and was 
net unerringly by Joe Brown. 
On Argentina’s second and 
third goals, Schumacher was 
strangely inert when drawn 
towards the hall first by 
Valdano cutting in from the 
left and then, in instant reply 


to Germany's equaliser, when 
Bnrrachaga swept in from the 
right. It was a rare trio of 

misjudgements. 

Many critics have been 
saying that without 
Maradona, Argentina were 
relatively tsiguificant opposi- 
tion. I had felt, since seeing 
them pace themselves through 
the first round, that they were 
likely to be able to adjust their 
game to produce what was 
necessary, certainly within the 


Germany, with their relentless 
narking, proved to be tile most 
obdurate, hot some marvel- 
lous. flowing first-time moves 
at dose quarters between 
Bnrrachaga, Valdano, 
Maradona and Enriqne 
thrilled die Azteca crowd and 
entked Germany into commit- 
ting repeated infringements, 
so that a succession of free 
kicks swung the tide again st 
them. 

Bnrrachaga was a delight, 
springing forward from mid- 
field onto Maradona's 
promptings like a cat off a 
wall, to such effect that 
Maradona himself could most 
of the time be happy to play 
the subsidiary role. Just now 
and then he would remind 
Germany that be was by a 
distance the outstanding per- 
former of 1986. 

Germany suffered to some 
extent from exactly the same 


problem as bad England: get- 
ting so many men behind the 
bail demanded that extra pace 
and accuracy on was needed on 
the counter-attack, and bring 
cnrrently without threatening 
forwards, they mostly couM 
not find it. They were too 
dependent on BriegeTs initia- 
tive in surges oat of defence, 
hat after toe first half hour he 
became less and less signifi- 
cant Argentina's one-touch 
was exacting a fearful strain 


niqg and covering. 

Less than they did against 
England, Argentina only be- 
gan to play for time after 
Rtraunenigge had stabbed the 
ball home as a corner with a 
quarter of an hour to go. For a 
reason which would not be- 
come apparent until the post 
match crescendo of victory had 
calmed. Brown, Argentina’s 
sweeper, strangely stayed on 
the Arid in spite of a shoulder 
injury in the 52nd minute. He 
continued bravely to hold the 
fort with tHady interceptions, 
yet was increasingly in pain 
and under pressure, and ft 
seemd extraordinary that he 
should still be allowed to 
remain with Voller equalised. 
In that moment yoa would not

(After extra lime . ; 2-2 at full 
time) 

Puebla (Reuter) — France, 
presentinga face for the future 
and a stiff upper lip to their 
heart-breaking defeat in the 
semi-finals to West Germany, 
claimed third place in the 
World Cup when they scored 
twice in extra time. 

Belgium appeared to lake 
the occasion more seriously as 
they made only one change 
from the line-up that faced 
Argentina. Belgium reflected 
their determination when they 
took an eleventh minute lead 
through Ceulemans. their cap- 


tain and midfield player, who 
once again produced the out- 
standing form which helped 
his side achieve their fine and 
unexpected run to the semi- 
final. 

Ceulemans gave Belgium 
the lead when fie left Amoros 
and Le Roux, the big central 
defender, helplessly in his 
wake. He surged into the 
penalty area and flicked his 
shot past Rust, who was 
making his foil international 
debut after his long sojourn as 
goalkeeping understudy to 
Bats. 

France equalized when 
Bell one. always a danger in 
attack on the wing, found 
Vermiysse who. whether by 
luck or judgment, juggled the 


ball on to Ferreri who buried 
his dose-range shot firmly in 
the net in the 27th minute. 

France hit back twice to 
lead 2-1 at half-time and 
although Belgium equalized 
late in the second half through 
Claesen, it was France who 
proved the more durable and 
sealed their victory in extra 
time. 

Papin made amends for 
early lapses - most notably a 
tenth minute chance which he 
drove wide from point-blank 
range - and beat Pfeff to put 
France 2-1 up in the 43rd 
minute. 

Belgium, however; were not 
to be dismissed without a fight 
mid hauled themselves back in 
the 73rd minute. Claesen.

surprise with 

T arions’s recall 


By John Woodcock 

. Cricket Coreespondeni 

In their desperation, 
England's cricket selectors 
have recalled Wayne Larfuns 
to play in the third and last 
Test match' against. India, 
sponsored by Comhili and 
starting at Edgbaston on 
Thursday. Gower and roster 
also come back, and Neal 
Radford makes his. first ap- 
pearance in a party of 12. 
Dropped from the side that 
was outplayed at Headmgky 
are Lamb, Lever, Slack and 
Christopher Smith. 

I can think of a no more 
unexpected choice since the 
Second War than that of 
Larkins. What makes it so 
surprising is that owing to a 
football injury to his ankle, 
which kept him idle until the 
end of May, he has played 
only six first-class innings this 
season, plus the one be started 
at Hastings on Saturday eve- 
ning and which will be fol- 
lowed with interest today. His 
scores have been 8, 10. 12, 0, 

1 1, 2 and 9 not out 

He is 32 and the last of his 
six Test matches was against 
Australia at the Oval in 1981 
when he made 34 (his best 
score; for England) and 24. 
Although, when the mood 
'takes mm, he can play quite 
brilliantly, his cavalier style 
has always been more attrac- 
tive than consistent. He runs 
hot and cold, getting out a lot 
in the twenties and thirties but 
then reefing off a fortnight of 
centuries. - 

In same mould 
as Gooch 

Ten years ago, when making 
a documentary on cricket one 
of the television companies, 
haying gone to Edgbaston to 
film the game behind the 
scenes, decided that while they 
were there they might as wefl 
take a shot or two of the match 
in progress. Warwickshire 
were playing Northampton- 
shire, and what they found; 
themselves recording was an 
innings of 167 by . Larkins. 
Now in the archives, it is 
reckoned to be a classic exhi- 
bition of tatsmanship. 

Larkins went to Australia in 
1979-80 but he was still more 
a player of promise than 
fulfilment when. In 1982,. be 
was banned for three years far 
touring "South Africawjththc 
side that did so against the 
wishes of the Test and County 
Cricket Board. On returniag; 
he scored five centuries: Tor 
Northamptonshire and 
showed that Season The sort of 
form that would have interest- 
ed the selectors had he been 
eligible. But by 1984 he tod 
dropped to 58th in the nation- 
al batting averages, and last 
year he was 59th. Any number 
of opening batsmen must have 
thought yesterday that they 
had a better chance of hearing 
their name in this.week’s side. 

Widely described as "“a 
bunch of has-beens" at the 
time, seven of that "rebel" 
team to South Africa have 
si nce been chosen for England 
— Emburey, Gooch, Lever, . 
Sidebouom, Taylor, Willey, 
and now Larkins. Many 
would say that Boycott, Un- 
derwood and Knott also . 
should have been. 

Larkins could, I suppose, 
have been brought out of 
storage in case Gooch _ is 
unavailable for Australia mid 
someone of experience and 
with the same attacking bent is 
needed to replace hum but 
that is pure conjecture. He is 
certainly a remarkable selec- 
tion, especially when what the 
side needs in the early order is 
stability. The idea for it may 
have come when Larkins was 
making a dashing 40 for 
Northamptonshire against 
Middlesex in last 
Wednesday's NatWest tie. 
Fred Titmus, a selector, was 
there to see it, as of course was 
Gatling. 

As Larkins returns, Lamb; 
his , Northamptonshire col- 
league, departs after playing 
45 successive Test matches: 
Lamb gave himself a lot. to live 
up to when he made four Test . 
hundreds in ■ 1984, three 
against West Indies and one 
against Sri Lanka. Since then 
he has averaged 25 in 22 
innings. Only patronage cohJd. 
have kept him in at that rate, 
but. he is only- 22 arid conkl 
well be. bade. Larkins will be

Radford’s selection may 
cause a blush or two in 
Lancashire, where they decid- 
ed at the end of 1 984 that they 
had no more use for him. 
Worcestershire took him on, 
and. like Alhey when he 
moved from Yorkshire to 
Gloucestershire, he has bene- 
fited greatly from a change of 
environment. Last season and 
this. Radford's bag of wickets

figures in Test matches these 
days, and nothing much in the 
way of rims to be expected 
from Difley, Foster, Radford,
