be concerned with opposing

Soldier is 
shot at 
ceremony 

By Richard Ford 

A British soldier was seri- 
ously ill last night after Re- 
publican terrorists shot him at 
the end of a ceremony marking 
the seventieth anniversary of 
the Dublin Easter Rising. A 
single shot hit him in the face 
in the Gobnascale estate in 
Londonderry. 

Later, rioting broke out in 
the city cemetery when the 
police and soldiers tried to 
arrest masked men who had 
fired a volley over the grave of 
an IRA man. Women shielded 
the men and the security forces 
were attacked with stones and 
bottles.- They replied with 
plastic bnflets. 

The shot soldier, serving 
with the Royal Anglian regi- 
ment, had been on duty at a 
ceremony daring which a 
plaque commemorating Re- 
publican volnnteers was 
raveiied. 

The ceremony, attended by 
about 150 people, had passed 
peacefully until the gunman 
opened fire in an incident 
which is bound to be hailed as 
an act of defiance on a day 
when the Provisional IRA and 
Sinn Fein tell supporters that 
the war wiD goon until Britain 
withdraws. 

In speeches at the biggest 
ceremony, in west Belfast, the 
nervousness of the Republican 
movement over the Anglo- 
Irish agreement was evident 

Mr Mitchell McLaughlin, a 
leading Sinn Fein member 
from Londonderry, gave the 
oration and said that the 
agreement was designed to 
preserve the status quo. 

He appealed to the 
“loyalist” working class to 
join the nationalist working 
class to bring revolutionary

THE TIMES MONDAY MARCH 31 1986 


NUT at Blackpool 


Teachers back 


leadership on 
wage talks but 
sanctions stay 


Members of the National 
Union of Teachers yesterday 
backed their leadership's deci- 
sion to take pan in talks on 


long-term pay and conditions 
under the Advisory Concilia- 
tion and Arbitration Service 
(Acas). 

But Mr Fred Jams, the 
union's general secretary, 
warned the local authority 
employers and the smaller 
teacher associations that the 
NUT would offer them “no 
comfort” and would continue 
to press for a restoration of 
1974 salary levels, which 
would entail a 30 per cent rise, 
and improved conditions of 
service. 

The annual conference of 
the NUT. in Blackpool, over- 
whelmingly approved an exec- 
utive resolution endorsing 
participation in the talks while 
maintaining classroom sanc- 
tions. threatening a return to 
“sustained strike action”, and 
mounting a publicity drive to 
increase support from parents. 

Delegates, however, reject- 
ed other means of promoting 
their pay campaign, which 
includes the demand for an 
immediate £800 flat-rate rise. 
pending the outcome of the 
Acas talks. The other means 
could have included a nation- 
al one-day strike and a ban on 
invigilating exams. 


Mr Jarvis told the confer- 
ence: “When we go to the talks 
the other parties will not like 
what we say. We are bringing 
them nothing for their 
comfort-” 

The NUTs objectives of 
restoring 1974 saiary levels, 
restructuring pay scales and 
securing widespread improve- 
ments in conditions of service 
remain unchanged. 

“We are not only attempt- 
ing to benefit the teaching 
profession. We are doing what 
is essential if the children of 
this country are to enjoy the 
high quality of education to 
which they are entitled and on 
which the future of Britain 
depends.” Mr Jarvis said.

‘£5.1 m less’ spent on 
books in State schools 


By Lucy Hodges, Education Correspondent 


Spending on books in State 
schools fell again in real terms 
between 1984 and 1985. and is 
now drastically below what is 
spent in the independent 
schools, according to Mr John 
Davies, director of the Educa- 
tional Publishers Council. 

Speaking at the National 
Union of Teachers conference 
in Blackpool yesterday, he 
said that annual spending on 
books for each primary school 
child had declined from £7.25 
to £7.24. and for each second- 
ary school child from £10.17 to 
£10.09 in England and Wales. 

The total cash spend on 
books in primary schools had 
shrunk from £28.4 million to 
£28 million, and in secondary 
schools from £39.S million to 
£38.2 million, a total loss of 
£2 million. 


into account the cut was 
£3.6 milhon. The figures are 
taken from Department of 
Education and Science stat- 
istics. 

Comparing the figures for 
books and equipment with the 
independent sector. Mr Da- 
vies said that in 1983-84 
preparatory boarding schools 
spent £59.10 on each pupil, 
and preparatory day schools 
£35.40. That compared with 
spending in State primaries of 
£25.40 in that year. 


At rhe headquarters of the 
Royal Ulster Constabulary 
yesterday senior officers met 
for the third day running to 
discuss today's parade by the 
loyalist Apprentice Boys in 
Portadown. co Armagh. Ten- 
sions in ihe town are high 
since the loyalists informed 
the police of a route which will 
lake them near Roman Catho-

It is feared that some ele- 
ments want a confrontation 
similar to those last summer, 
when Portadown was the 
scene of some of the worst 
loyalist rioting for many years. 


A former British Army offi- 
cer has been approached by 
the Government to act as a 
commissioner in the event of 
services in Northern Ireland 
breaking down because of 
Unionist protests over the 
Anglo-Irish agreement 

The Government is under 
mounting pressure to send a 
commissioner to Belfast City 
Council which has adjourned 
its meetings for six months 
and whose annual contracts 
for fuel supplies expire tomor- 
row. 

Mr John Gorman, aged 63. 
who retired last year as chief 
executive of the Housing Ex- 
ecutive. has been approached 
by senior officials and he said 
yesterday that if he was invit- 
ed to act as a commissioner. “1 
will certainly not be unpre- 
pared to do that”. 

Mr Gorman, who was an 
officer in the Irish Guards and 
served with the RoyaJ Ulster 
Constabulary, has already ad- 
vised the Government on the 
situation over the setting of 
district rates in the 1 8 councils 
that are adjourned as port of 
the Unionist protest. 

Unionist councillors in Bel-

fast have been warned by Mr 
Cecil Ward, the town clerk, of 
the wide range of services that 
could run down within a 
matter of weeks as well as the 
delays caused to building 
projects by the adjournment 
policy. 


The Roman Catholic Pri- 
mate of All Ireland expressed 
disappointment yesterday at 
the lack of progress in the 
North since the signing of the 
Anglo-Irish agreement. 

Ordinal Tomas O Fiaich 
said: “It has a lot in potential 
and therefore 1 think it de- 
serves a dance. I think the 
Anglo-Irish agreement will 
have to prove itself over the 
years. The agreement simply 
proves itself in action”. 

However, he said the agree- 
ment had enhanced the posi- 
tion of Roman Catholics 
“more symbolically than any 
other way”. 


Members of the Official 
Unionist and Democratic 
Unionist parties ignored a 16- 
page report outlining the diffi- 
culties ahead when they voted 
last week to hold no meetings 


in April and refused to see a 
delegation from community 
groups threatened whb clo- 
sure because a grant of 
£250.000 had been frozen. 

Their refusal to suspend the 
adjournment policy to vote 
grants for the groups, includ- 
ing mother and toddler dubs, 
citizens' advice bureaux and a 
resource centre, threatens to 
close 25 groups with the loss of 
54 jobs and 100 community 
posts. 

Mr Rainer Paget, chairman 
of a steering committee of 
community groups, accused 
Unionist councillors of abdi - 1 
eating their responsibilities in ; 
a way which proved they were 
non-caring, hard-hearted, 
small-minded and.

Latest price: 


Alliance exploits 
Militant division 


By Richard Evans, Lobby Reporter 


COMPARED TO THE UNITED 
BISCUITS’ BEST AND FINAL 
OFFER FOR YOUR IMPERIAL 
SHARES, HANSON TRUST’S 
BEST AND FINAL OFFER 
IS NOW BETTER BY: 


The Miltitant Tendency fac- 
tor looks likely to dominate 
the Fulham by-election this 
week, with the the SDP- 
Liberal Alliance increasingly 
hopeful of using it to snatch 
victory from Labour on April 
10. . . 

The Alliance bombarded 
voters in the south-west Lon- 
don constituency at the week- 
end with a leaflet highlighting 
last week’s failure by Mr Neu 
Kinnock and Labour's nation- 
al executive to expel 12 
Merseyside Militants. 


Alliance officials are hope- 
ful that the latest canvassing 
returns, - now being fed into a 
computer, will confirm that 
their support is rising at the 
expense of both the Conserva- 
tive and Labour candidates. 


The SDFs determination to 
milk the Militant issue for all 
it is worth will pose the first 
real test for Mr Nick 


Raynsford, the moderate and 
highly competent Labour can- 


KJerseyside Militants. 

Mr Roger Liddle, SDP can- 
lidate, said last night: “1 


didate, who holds a comfort- 
able lead in tbe opinion polls. 


didate, said last night: “1 
believe last week’s events at 
the Labour party were a 
turning point” 

He claimed that the Mili- 
tant issue was a key talking 
point on council estates. “It 
was very encouraging from 
i our point of view. People were 
I going on about Labour’s splits 
and divisions and how they 



were not a strong party but 
were divided.” 



Dr David Owen, the SDP 
leader, will make his third by- 
election visit to the constitu- 
ency this morning. He is 
expected to resume the attack 
on Labour's inability to deal 
with extremists. 


Labour officials are conti- 
dent that a clear distinction 
has been made in voters’ 
minds between the Kinnock- 
ted party, seen as sound, 
reasonable and decent and 
the tiny minority of left-wing 
extremists, whose expulsion 
from the party has been 
delayed only temporarily. - 
Senior party sources last 
night firmly rejected reports 
that Mr Kranock intends to 
withdraw the party whip from 
Mr Terry Helds and Mr 
David Nellist, Labours two

Privatization 
‘could double 
water rates’ 


Seven in ten t hink that 
Sellafield is unsafe 


Water rates could double in 
some regions if the Govern- 
ment starts selling off the 10 
water authorities in England 
and Wales as planned, it was 
claimed yesterday. . 


Mr John Edmonds, general 
secretory of the General and 
Municipal. Boilermakers and 
Allied Trades Union, which 
represents 20,000 industry 
workers, said the move would 
be environmentally and eco- 
nomically disastrous. 


Nearly 70 per cent of the 
population think the nuclear 
waste reprocessing plant ax 
Sellafield, Cumbria, is unsafe, 
according to a NOP market 
research survey published 
today. 


“If privatization goes ahead 
in some regjons. there woulld 
have to be increases in water 
rates of up to 100 per cent in 
the first two years because new 
private owners, seeking in- 
creased profits, would still 
need to meet the costs of 




maintaining an expensive wa- 
ter system”, he said. 


A national survey of more 
than 1,000 people os March 
21 and 22 this year found that 
72 per cent believed it was 
unsafe to live wi thin 10 miles 
of the nuclear plant. 

Only 5 per cent; said they 
would feel “very safe" living 
near by. 

Nearly 80 per cent believed 
SdUafield should deal only 
with waste from Britain, or 
stop reprocessing altogether. 
Only 14 per cent said 
Sellafield should continue its 
present .reprocessing 
operations. 

Altogether, 69 per cent of 


those interviewed is the na- 
tional sample, believed the 
plant was unsafe. 

The survey, carried out for 
the Association of Market 
Survey' Organizations, which 
represents 31 leading research 
agencies, found that almost 
three in five people believed 
Britain would have to rely on 
nuclear power hs tbe fiuuhl . 

But the majority, 71 per 
cent, preferred government 
research into alternative 
forms of energy. Such as wind 
or wave power. 

Only 1 1 per cent supported 
more, nuclear power ‘station^ 
and 8 per cent saw a combina- 
tion of nuclear' and ‘ Other 
energy forms:, as the best 
choice for the future. •

. . - A 









of ‘ J im’ll Fix It’ 
first heart 



Martin Gny leaving for his 
doable transplant; 


A youth who matte rnMil** 1 
history by having a heart and 
kidney transplant sat up in 
bed yesterday and told his 
father "It’s great to be alive”. 
_ Martin Guy, aged 18, from 
Glen Masson, near Dunoon, 
Strathclyde, is the first person 
m B ritain, possibly in the 
world, to be given consecutive 
heart and kidney transplants. 
Within five-and-a-balf hours 
two teams of surgeons per- 
formed the two operations on 
Saturday. 

Martin appeared two weeks 
ago on the BBC television 
programme Jinfll Hx it after 
appealing for help. The RAF 
arranged to fly him to 
Papworth Hospital. Cam- 
bridge, for tests to see if he was 
suitable for transplants. 

His mother, Mrs Jenny 
Guy, said at the family home 
in Argyllshire yesterday: “The 
whole family is overjoyed at 
the progress Martin has made 
so tar.- He is feeling great 
considering what be has been 
through.” 

On Saturday morning the 
hospital telephoned to say that 
a donor was av ailab le and 
Martin, accompanied by his 
father and a nurse, went by 
sea, land and air ambulance to 
the hospital and was on the 
operating table by 5.25pm. 
About three and a half hours 
later the heart transplant was 
completed and 20 minutes 
later he was back in the theatre 
for the two-hour kidney 
transplant. 

Mr John Edwards, a hospi- 
tal spokesman, said last night: 
“Martin is fully conscious and - 
his condition is satisfactory 
and improving. Both opera- 
tions were successful and both 


donor organs are working well 
and be is breathing on his own 
-without a ventilator. 

“He came down here for 

• assessment a couple of weeks 
ago and after that his doctors 
were dear in their own minds 
that both transplants were the 
only treatment possible for 
him to save him. But we 
needed a suitable donor. 

“The operations were car- 
ried out with precision to 
make sure that both of the 
replacement organs were in 
exactly the right condition.” 

He added: “AVe were not just 
saving a life but giving this 
young man a better quality of I 
life so that he could rejoin his 
community and live life to the 
falL r 

• Several advances in trans- 
plant surgery made it possible 
for Martin to undergo the 
multiple organ transplant 
(Pearce Wright writes). 

One is the rapid method of 
tissue typing, which allows 
donor organs to be matched to 
possible recipients very quick- 
ly. Through the use of com- 
puter analysis, dbpor organs 
can be matched instantly to a 
list of patients waiting for 
transplants. 

Furthermore, without the 
refinement of drugs to over- 
come rejection of transplants, 
it would not have been possi- 
ble to have conducted the 
double surgery. 

There was the need to carry 
out a dual operation because 
Martin's illness put a strain on 
both organs. Treating one by 
replacement would have only 
been a temporary measure 
because the untreated organ 
would have led to a failure of 
the one replaced.

Customs officers have 
promised to minimize the 
delays to travellers at Britain's 
air and sea ports today as a 
result of a union work-to-rufe. 

Mr Ken Rignall, a branch 
secretary of the Society of 
Civil and Public Servants, 
denied a report in The Morton 
Sunday that forecast' wide- 
spread delays. 

He said: “Contrary to the 
leport, our, aim is not to: 
disrupt Easter ho&day traffic. . 
We ljave not called -for walk- 
outs, 'only a. woik-to-^ile 
Which is likely 10 delay incom- 
ing- passengers at Heathrow 
forup to about half an hour on 
Monday. While we have had 
messages of support from 
cnfleagiies elsewhere, other 
airports and maritime ports - 
should not be affected” 

Mr Rignall said that the 
society may call nationwide 
action in the dispute over new 
drift rotas for Terminal Four 
at Heathrow airport before the 
terminal opens cm April 12, . 
but there were no such plans 
for disruption of the holiday 
weekend 


. At Dover, Mr Keith Turner, 
organizing secretary of the 
union- at the main channel 
ports, confirmed that no ac- 
tion was planned over Easter. 

.The Customs and Excise 
said the management was 
watching the situation dosely 
and would implement contin- 
gency plans if necessary. 

“Our message to the public 
is not to be alarmed. Anyone 
coming through the green 
channels at Heathrow with 
nothing _to declare, over the 
1 Silts should have 'no prob- 
lems. If abnormal delays de- 
velop at red channels we will 
be introducing contingency 
plans to minimize 
inconvenience.” 

A customs officer working 
at Heathrow said yesterday 
that he was maintaining con- 
trols as usual, particularly 
regarding drugs trafficking. 

. “We're just working accord- 
ing to the rules laid down. My 
main concern is drugs and I 
am keeping a sharp eye .out as 
usual. To suggest our action 
will open the door to drugs 
runners is nonsense.” 


Tougher eggs 
hope in shells 
breakthrough 

_ poultry feed that win 
improve the quality ofeffisfor 
consumers and boost farmers' 
incomes by millions of 
pounds a year has been devel- 
• oped by British scientists. . 
BOCM-Silcock, one of the 
country’s largest animal feed 
suppliers, his developed a 
feed , which produces a large 
egrwitfa a tough shell, packed 
with vitamins. 

Thetirirmess of many shells 
is the largest single cause of 
- complaints from consumers. 
The feed contains no drugs, 
antibiotics or hormones 
Poultry farmers will benefit 
because the feed provides 
large eggs, which command 
high prices, and they have 
strong shells which wil] reduce 
breakages. The avera^s Briton 
eats 250 eggs a year. Egg sales 
.last year were worth almost. 
£900 million and more than 
11,124 million eggs were 
produced. 


Debrett leads 
with royal 
wedding book 

Publishers of the peerage 
book, Debrett, have been 
working flat out over the Bank 
holiday to get the first royal 
wedding book into the shops. 

The publishers gambled on 
Prince Andrew's choice as 
fiancee four months before he 
proposed, arid have had gene- 
alogists researching Miss. Sa- 
rah Ferguson’s family. 

The company is trying to get 
the hardback book into shops 
by mid-May, well in time for 
the wedding on July 23. 

Mr Robert Jarman, the 
managing director, said: “We 
took a gamble on Sarah Fergu- 
son back in December and 
thankfully it has paid off”. 

The firm did the same at the 
last royal wedding, and 
soldmore than 200,000 copies 
of its book then. Among the 
revelations in the new book is 
that the future princess is 
distantly related to the brewer 
Samuel Whitbread; 


Giro ghost 
tenants 
face purge 

“Ghost” council house ten- 
ants in Glasgow could be 
collecting multiple Giro 
cheques under a variety of 
aliases. They do not live in the 
bouses, using the addresses as 
“Giro drops”. 

The houses are rarely fur- 
nished, although . grants for 
ftaniture have been made. 
Now the city's housing depart- 
mem is to lead a crackdown 
on its bogus tenants. . 

Where the house is not 
being property occupied the 
tenancy will be ended and the 
house re-let. 

Mr James McLean, the 
bousing convener, said: “It is 
a massive problem nation- 
wide, but particularly bad in 
Glasgow. What we are seeing 
is only a tip of this iceberg." 

The ghost tenants, normally 
single, accept tenancies on 
estates where letting is diffi- 
cult. The address enables 
them to quality for higher rate 
supplementary benefits and to 
receive special payments from 
the Department of Health and 
Social Security to furnish their 
new home. • 

Mr McLean said: “It does 
not take the neighbours long 
to realize that no one lives in 
the house. The tenant only 
appears to meet the postman 
on Giro day. 

“When housing officials in- 
vestigate they usually find the 
property vandalized 
All kinds of operations and 
rackets are being worked at the 
council's expense. Some of 
these addresses are used as a 
local base for drug 
trafficking.*’

Bridleway find 


' ; J - ' 


Survival hope for rare plant 

. By Hugh Clayton, Environment Correspondent 






A -chance discovery by a 
retired secretary has trans- 
formed the snrnvai hopes of 
one of Britain's least-known 
rare plants. Mbs Jo Dunn, 
who found the plants on the 
edge of a grassy bridleway, 
said: U I do net think anything 


_ botanfcafly 
happen to me again”. 

The downy woundwort is not 
nearty. so spectacular as the 
threatened orchids and other 
rarities that are guarded day 
and night in their flowering 
seasons. The woundwort, so 
named for the supposed beal- 
mg abilities of seme of to near 
botanical relatives, is similar 
to the lambs' (segues plants of 
■ cottage gardens and herba- 
ceous borders.; ... 

It once grew in severalparts 
of the Smith, and Midlands, 
but has gradually dwindled in 
the face of building and iriten- 
iDdbb 


made her discovery last year ft 
was thought to survive m 
Britain canity in two places in 
Oxfordshire. ... 

Miss Dunn has been qnietty 
looking after _ the plants she 
found on tiie public bridleway 
elsewhere in the comity. Her 
discovery came to light only 
after she had been given a 
jgrant of £25 by the. British 
Ecological Sodety to meet the 
costs of petrol needed to reach 
the plants, telephone calls to 
landowners and. wire to protect 
tiie growing plants against 
rabbits. 

When the Narine Conser- 
vancy Council learnt of the 
discovery ft gave Miss Dunn a 
farther £100 for writing a fall 
ywuntf df her jnonitoriiq; of 
the plants. Sto believes, that 
they appeared because the 
hedge, near, which they grow 
was cot in 1982 for the first 
time for at least 40 years. 


She would not name the site 
because so many rare wild 
plants have been dug up 
iDegalty Ity collectors. The 
plait looks rather like a tall 
nettle with small pinkish' flow- 
ers in the summer. It has a 
habit of disappearing tea few 
years and then starting to grow 
again. 

Miss Dunn said: “I retired 
two years ago. and 1984 was 
my first year of going back to 
my love of botany". She 
spotted a lovely -stand of mask 
thistle, and there was this 

plant not in flower with its 
whole stem covered in white 
hairs”. She identified it as 
downy woundwort from a lfiO- 
year-old flower hook. “I 
thought: T must go back when 
the flowers are out”\she add- 
ed- “By the end of the summer 
I had counted 56 flowering 
stems.”

Reprieve for 
Easter Parade 

The annual Easter Parade in Batter- 
sea Park, London, yesterday, which 
seemed likely to disappear with the 
Greater London Council, has been 
reprieved. 

Yesterday, Mr Edward Lister, a 
Conservative councillor and chairman 
of Wandsworth leisure amenities and 
services committee, promised to con- 
tinue the tradition. 

He said: “This is one of the park's 
most popular events and we have made 
a commitment to carry it on when we 
take over responsibility on Tuesday.” 

Bnt be said many events staged by the 
GLC, such as last July's Jobs for a 
Change, would end. “That was an 
absolute disaster with 15 muggings in 
an afternoon,” he complained. “The 
local people were not interested.”

Bishop 
pulls out 
of Iran 
charity 

A bishop yesterday with- 
drew sponsorship for a charity 
set up to help refugees from 
the Iranian regime of 
Ayatollah Khomeini because 
its fund-raising was “too 
aggressive”. 

The Bishop of Manchester, 
the Rt Rev Stanley Bootb- 
Cl ib bora, made his decision 
after learning that Iranian 
students acting for Iran-aid. 
had been stopping pedestrians 
in Sheffield with demands for 
minimum donations of £75. 

The students have been 
collecting on Sheffield Uni- 
versity campus for some time, 
and are believed to have 
raised a considerable sum. But 
there were complaints they 
had pursued students who 
promised to make a donation. 

Mr Paul Blonfield, deputy 
manager of the university 
students’ union, said’ “I can 
confirm that a complaint has 
been made about Iran-Aid” 
Collectors have now moved 
into the city centre and have 
spent some days stopping 
passers-by. Their technique is 
to ask: “Who do you think is 
the most haled man in the 
world.” 

Potential donors are then 
shown a colour brochure of 
alleged atrocities under the 
Khomeini regime, including a 
photograph of a dissident 
being hanged from a crane. 

They say it costs £300 a 
month to rehouse a refugee 
Iranian family of three in 
Pakistan, and ask for a dona- 
tion to keep the family going 
for “a short time”. The mini- 
mum they accept is £75. 

The bishop, whose name is 
shown as a sponsor on leaflets 
produced by collectors, said: 

“I have mid them that I 
cannot go on sponsoring 
them. 

“I have no doubt it is a good 
humanitarian charity, but 
some of the methods used by 
their collectors are 
aggressive.’’ 




If you're in the market fora mobile cellulartelephone, be warned 

While there's no shortage of companies willing to sell 
you equipment, there's a distinct shortage able to provide 
a quality service to go with it.

‘Ghost town’ 
danger for 
Handsworth 
after riots 


By Craig Setnn 

- Traders whose shops and destroyed properties, 
businesses were fire-bombed 
during the 


and looted 
Handsworth riots in Birming- 
~ ham last September have said 
..the area is in danger of 
■•becoming a ghost town. 

. The Lozells Road Traders 
■Association, which was 
formed to represent the shop 
owners who lost their proper- 
ty, said that none of the claims 
for compensation, totalling 
more than £5 million, 
havebeen paid, delaying plans 
"to redevelop the area. 

Seven months after the 
V. noting, during which an Asian 
postmaster and his brother 
“'died in their burning post 
“ office, three former traders 
" were claiming unemployment 
^■benefit, according to the 
association. 

Five more had left the area 
and others were struggling to 
survive in a temporary market 
“set up in the road where the 

• violence reached its peak. 

‘ Mr Basil Clarke, chairman 
~of foe association, whose elec- 
-itrica) business was destroyed, 
" said yesterday that -Traders 

• were desperate to press ahead 
with a £3 million shopping 
development to replace the 


Loss adj usters appointed by 
the West Midlands Police 
Authority, against whom 
compensation claims were 
made, are still working to 
produce figures on which pay- 
ments can be made. Birming- 
ham City Council is 
examaning the plans for about 
thirty-two new shops. 

Mr Clarke said; “There is a 
real danger that the area could 
become a ghost town unless 
we get some action quickly. 

"If the money starts to come 
through and all the red tape is 
removed, there is no reason 
why we should not start 
rebuilding in three months to 
produce a modern shopping 
area for the whole communi- 
ty. 

The association hopes that 
once the plans for redevelop- 
ment go ahead, the Prince of 
Wales may visit the area as a 
demonstration of his interest 
in the regeneration of the 
inner cities. 

The association hopes that 
its members will meet about 
60 per cent of the cost of the 
shopping redevelopment in

of their career as a Territorial Army Officer,

Crown pr osecution service: 1 

hoping 
will 

restore faith in 
justice system 

Lon don .on.orro^ 

toSSS'- " ,he " the'sc^TeoL 


THE TIMES MONDAY MARPH T i 1 Qg^ 


HOME/OVERSEAS NEWS 5 


A fundamental change in 

the way crimes are prosecuted 

in England and Wales comes 
into force in many parts of the 
country tomorrow with the 
start of the new Crown prose- 
cuuon service. 

/Asm Scotland, responsibU- 
. rty for prosecutions will be 
removed from the police so 
l hat they do not both investi- 
gate offences and prosecute 
offenders. Instead, prosecu- 
tion will be the responsibility 
of a network of public prose- 
cutors, lawyers employed by 
the Government, who will 
have the final say on what 

. cases are brought to court. 

The £88 million service, 
which starts in the six metro- 

- pojitan areas outside London, 

■ is intended to improve stan- 
• dards of prosecution, with the 

prosecutors acting as filters to 
weed out weals cases, as the 
procurators ' fiscal do in Scot- 
land. 

„ Recent statistics show there 
is a high rate of acquittals 
(about 47 per cent) in the 
Crown courts and about 40 
per .cent of those are at the 
direction of the judge.. The 
most common reason is insuf- 
ficient evidence. The Crown 
prosecutors will have power in 
such cases to order charges to 
be dropped. 

It is also aimed at restoring 
public confidence in the crimi- 

- nal justice system in the wake 
of the widespread public dis- 
quiet which led to the setting 
up of the Royal Commission 
on Criminal Procedure in 
1979. . 

That commission urged re- 
forms to police powers and 
suspects' -rights, which came 
into force under the Police and 
Criminal Evidence Act, 1984. 
at the beginning pf this year. 
As a balance to .increased 
police powers, it also urged a 
.prosecution service separate 
from the police. 


sometimes went to trial on the 
instructions of the police 
which either were not justified 
on the evidence or could have 
been dealt with outside the 
court system. 

Heading the new service 
will be Sir Thomas 
Heiherington, QC, Director of 
Public Prosecutions, who has 
postponed his retirement to 
see it into.effect. His office of 
about 200 staff wiD be the 
headquarters for the national 
chain of 40 chief Crown 
prosecutors, each heading a 
team of prosecuting lawyers. 

The new departments 
roughly correspond with po- 
lice force areas and draw their 
staff from the old county 
prosecuting solicitors' depart- 
ments. But in several areas, 
such as Bedforshjre and Hert- 
fordshire, where there was no 
department and the police 
used outside lawyers, whole 
new departments are being 
created. 

The service gets off the 
ground in Northumbria and 
Durham, the West Midlands, 
Greater Manchester, West 
Yorkshire, South Yorkshire 
and Merseyside. It starts in the 
rest of Britain, including Lon- 
don. which has been divided 
■ into three new prosecuting 
areas, on October 1. 

At full strength the service is 
expected to have about 1,500 
lawyers, compared with a total 
of 1,000 now in prosecuting 
solicitors' departments, the 
DPFs office and the Metro- 
politan Police solicitors’ de- 
partment Its total staff will be 
2 , 000 . 

But despite an improved 
pay package offered by tbe 
Government last November, 
there is still "a shortfall of the 
basic troops", with about fifty 
lawyers needed to reach the 
target of 420 for the first six 
areas.

Sofia involvement, page 12 


The Hill of Shouts is silent 
now. A coil of barbed wire 
stretches across the lane that 
winds through the terraced 
apple orchard towards the 
white UN positions by the 
ceasefire line at the edge of the 
village. 

It was the Israelis who 
named it the Hill of Shouts. 
The local Druze villagers al- 
ways call it tbe HiU of Tears. 
Since this remote area of the 
slopes of snow-capped Mount 
Hermon were captured from 
Syria in 1967, it has been the 
only place where the villagers 
could pass messages back and 
forth to their Druze relatives 
on the other side of the line. 

For nearly 19 years contact 
between the two communities 
was maintained exclusively 
with the help of megaphones. 
Personal family news was 
shouted across the no-man's 
land in tile valley, from one 
hillside to the other. Brothers 
and sisters would go there to 
wave at each other, to pass on 
news of births, deaths and 
marriages. 

High on the hill behind, an 
Israeli watchtower monitored 
the shouts. Sometimes the 
messages would be censored 
by a wailing siren in the lower. 

But at the end of last month 
Mr Shimon Peres, the Israeli 
Prime Minister, paid what 
proved to be a very unwel- 
come visit to the village. His 
popularity may be exception- 
ally high among Israelis, but it 
does not extend to the three 
Druze villages on the Golan 
Heights. 

A spontaneous and violent 
demonstration followed, and 
Mr Peres beat a hasty and 
undignified retreat- Since then 
more than 60 arrests have 
been made, U of them last 
weekend. 

The villagers say they are 
used to Israeli prisons, and 
many of tbe men boast of the 
years spent inside for their 
protests about the occupation. 


But the closure ofthe Hill of 
Tears which followed the 
demonstration has been a 
hard blow. “Now we have no 
way at all of keeping in touch 
with our families." Mr Abdul 
Walid Assad complained. 

With his large house and 
ample figure, Mr Assad does 
not look as though he has 
physically suffered much from 
Israeli rule. But he is deeply 
angry at being cut off from his 
family, and furious at what he 
sees as Israeli efforts to brain- 
wash children into forgetting 
their Syrian nationality by 
introducing Hebrew into 
the schools. 

The youngsters who should 
be going to university suffer 
most, he said. They arc not 
allowed to make the 30-mile 
journey over the ceasefire line 
to Damascus; they cannot 
afford the fees to go to 
universities abroad: and they 
would have to become Israeli’s 
to qualify’ for identity papers 
that would let them leave the 
country. ^ 

Mr Assad insisted that this 
was something the children, 
who have ail bt^n born since 
Israel took over the area, 
would never do. He said they 
would remain Syrian and 
would be ready to cheer the 
Syrian tanks he feels sure will 
come one day to liberate the 
villages.

Vandals who lore fire crews

injury, a firemen's leader said 
yesterday. 

"Sooner or later a fireman is 
going to be killed by these 
lunatics", Mr Bernard Good- 
win, Midlands executive 
member of the Fire Brigades 
Union, said. 

He said the fire raisers 
tactics included removing 
pieces of timber from the 
stairs of a derelict property, 
then covering the missing 
steps with linoleum so that 
unsuspecting firemen r ~" 
through. 

Another was to fill contra- 
. ceptives with petrol, or paraf- 
fin, which exploded like 
incendiary devices when the 
fire in' the. building had built 
up sufficient heat On one 
occasion a fire crew was 
confronted by a sheet of plate 
glass which had been rigged to 
swing down when the front 
door was opened. 

Mr Goodwin said firemen 
were now extremely cautious 
when called to fires in derelict 
buildings. But they still had to 
search the property’ in case 
children or squatters were 
trapped inside. 

The growing problem is to 
be discussed at a seminar to be

Bids in for 
naval base 
takeover 

By Michael Bafly 
Transport Editor 

Nelson's Victory and Henry 
VIirs Mary Rose could be- 
come two of Britain's biggest 
tourist attractions in tbe 1990s 
under new plans for a private 
takeover of Portsmouth Naval 
Base. 

Four developers, including 
Allied Lyons and Sealink Brit- 
ish Femes, are competing to 
take over 50 acres of 
Portsmouth’s naval base for a 
tourist centre with old ships 
and naval b uilding s as tbe 
prime attraction. 

Their bids will be opened 
today by the Portsmouth Na- 
val Heritage Project made up 
of the Royal Navy. Ports- 
mouth City . Council The 
Mary Rose Trust, and tbe 
Warrior Trust, whose iron 
hulled warship would be an- 
other attraction. 


Marseilles and Nice over the 
weekend. No one was injured. 

The bombings are consid- 
1 ered the work of professionals, 
thought to belong to tbe 
I outlawed Corsican National 
Liberation Front (FLNC). 

The FLNC observed a truce 
during the recent election 
campaign but appear to have 
taken to terrorism again in 
earnest since the return to 
power of a right-wing Govern- 
ment in France. Bombs had 
exploded the previous week in 
Corsican holiday resents.

alleged to be a founder of the 
extreme left terrorist organiza- 
tion Action Directe, which has 
been responsible fora prolifer- 
ation of bombings and assassi- 
nations in France over the 
past few years, mainly direct- 
ed against specific oigan- 
izations. 

He was arrested with M 
Bernard Blanc, who is known 
to police. According to Le 
Monde ; the two men were 
wearing buflet-proof vests, 
and guns were found in tbe car 
in which they had been 
travelling. 


Under present management 
only about a million visitors a 
year come to tbe area, but 
developers believe that with 
skilled marketing and ‘man- 
agement this could rise to 5 
million. The project could 
provide a rich market for tram 
and coach services from Lon- 
don, and massive car parking 
is also planned together with 
shops, restaurants, and land- 
scaped leisure areas. 


Steam engine scheme 
for rail repair yard 

The consortium wanted .to 
use tbe 30-acre core ofthe site 
for heavy engineering, initially 
employing 369 workers, but 
rising to over a thousand in 
four years. 

The main challenge to the 
scheme is led by Mr Simon 
Coombs, Tory MP for Swin- 
don, who was linked with the 
consortium bat now doubts 
whether it would be possible 
to turn a repair works into a 
full-scale manufacturing 
operation. 

Last Wednesday, flags flew 
at'haif-mast at the site as 1 , 100 
workers; many in tears, col- 
lected their last pay packet, 
leaving a skeleton staff of 450.

193 held 
in nuclear 
protest 

Wackersdorf (AP) - West 
German police are attempting 
to hold on to 193 anti-nuclear 
militants arrested at the week- 
end until after the huge dem- 
onstration planned here for 
today against a nuclear plant 
construction site. 

The 193 were among 280 
activists arrested at a 
protesters' tent camp outside 
Wackersdorf whichpolice said 
harboured a cache of weapons, 
including petrol bombs. 

The arrests came as Easter 
weekend demonstrations 
against nuclear power and 
nuclear arms started all over 
West Germany. 

The arrested activists were 
planning to storm the con- 
struction site of the 
Wackersdorf nuclear waste- 
recycling plant today and tear 
down the perimeter fence, said 
Herr Dieter Stelzer, police 
spokesman in this Bavarian 
village. 

_ Weapons seized at the tent 
! included axes, hammers, 

^ knives, metal slingshot projec- 
tiles, masks and chemicals 
that could be used in making 
explosives, Herr Stelzer said. 

A spokesman for the Bavar- 
ian Greens party, Herr Hans- 
Dieter Reiche, yesterday 
called the tent raid an “arbi- 
trary act of the police". He 
said the protesters' tent camp 
bad been registered with local 
authorities. 

Thousands of people are 
expected to converge on 
Wackersdorf for the demon- 
stration today.

man anti-nuclear movement's

being conducted yesterday in

Norway 
ends its 
paper fast 

From Tony Samstas 
Oslo 

Norway wflj begin to surface 
tomorrow from its Easter 
break, probably the world's 
longest, and almost certainly 
the lengthiest period that any 
popf -'athm has to do without 
daily newspapers. 

Although a few papers dis- 
tributed Easter editions on 
Holy Saturday, they were 
printed before Wednesday af- 
ternoon, when the entire in- 
dustry shot down. It reopens 
tomorrow morning. 

Disgrondement at the en- 
forced abstinence is almost as 
traditional at this time of year 
as the Easter eggs or the first 
daffodils of the season. 

However, this particular 
Easter custom may be on its 
way ont, with an equally 
unpopular ban ou Sunday j 
newspapers which has persist- 
ed since 1919. 

That was tbe year when (in 
the words of Dagbladet, in its 
Easter edition) a “sanctimo- 
nious alliance" of derics and 
newsagents promulgated what | 
was. for its day, an enlightened 
piece of labour legislation 
guaranteeing print workers at 
least one day off each week. 

The law has since been 
changed, but prist workers 
ding to the tradition. The 
parallels with Britain are 
clear,' and the newspaper in- 
dustry does not hesitate to 
draw tireei, pointing to the 
achievements of Mr Eddie 
Shah and Mr Rupert Mur- 
doch at tire expense of the 
print muons. 

Nonray. too, has its would- 
be press baron who is trying to 
force a breakthrough. Mr 
Hroar Hansen, a right- 1 
electronics tycoon, has at- 
tempted to branch a Sunday 
newspaper with non-union 
printers.

Instead of investing over 7°i of sales turnover in

Instead of manufacturing our own engines,

Shultz fails to 
bridge gap 
with Italy on 
Libya policy 


. J v . 4 

ft- •- 

... •• ■ . -r~- • - ' 


From John Earle, Rome 


Mr Game Shultz, the US 
Secretary of State, flew home 
yesterday after a three-day 
visit to Rome daring which be 
failed to bridge differences 
with die Italian Government 
over policy towards Libya. 

Opinions varied on the right 
tactics for dealing with the 
Libyan leader. Colonel 
Gadaffi. he told a press 
conference. 

“What’s wrong with 
Gadaffi?” he asked rhetorical- 
ly. “You don’t need to be 
Sherlock Holmes” to see that 
Gadaffi mined the Red Sea. 
harboured and trained terror- 
ists, claimed international wa- 
ters and air space and opened 
fire on others in them, op- 
posed the peace process in the 
Middle East, and supported 
aggression in Africa. 

“He is his own smoking 
gun,” Mr Shultz said. But be 
stressed that there was com- 
plete Italian agreement on 
other aspects of the recent 
Gulf of Sirte dash, notably on 
recognition of the 12-mile 
limit for international waters, 
on the inadmissability of fir- 
ing on ships in international 
waters, and on the right of self- 
defence. 


The Italian view was reiter- 
ated to Mr Shultz successively 
by President Cossiga, Signor 
Bettino Craxi, the Prime Min- 
ister, and Signor Giulio 
Andreolti, the Foreign 
Minister. 

Italy feels that the assertion 
of the right of navigation in 
international waters near an- 
other country by repeated 
naval exercises is highly risky, 
and that disputes over inter- 
national waters should be 
settled by arbitration. 

While in Rome Mr Shultz 
met the Egyptian Foreign 
Minister. Mr Ahmed Meguid, 
and had a private audience 
with the Pope. 

• MADRID: Spain has 
“reminded” Colonel Gadaffi 
that no American bases here 
were used by US naval forces 
during last week’s clash in the 
Gulf of Sirte area (Richard 
Wigg writes). 

Senor Francisco Fernandez 
Ordofiez, the Foreign Minis- 
ter, emphasized this point 
when rejecting the Libyan 
leader's threat to Spain that 
the bases on its territory could 
become the next target if such 
dashes resume.

Third tanker hit 


Bahrain (Renter) — A Pana- 
manian-registered tanker was 
set ablaze in an Iranian air 
strike in the Golf yesterday, 
the third victim of the war 
between Iran and Iraq within 
two days, shipping sources 
said. 

The sources said a missile 
launched from an Iranian 
helicopter smashed into the 
engine room of the 103,17ft- 
ton Stelios about 70 miles east 
of Qatar, near an area where 
the Norwegian tanker Berge 
King was hit on Saturday. 


A Liberian supertanker, the 
176453-ton Hawaii, was hit in 
an Iraqi attack about 60 miles 
south of Iran’s Kharg Island, 
also on Saturday. A total of 28 
large vessels have been con- 
firmed hit in the Gulf so far 
this year, compared with just 
over 40 for all of 1985. 

The sources said the Stelios 
sent out a distress call and 
salvage tugs were on their way. 
They said there were no 
casualties on board the ship, 
which was later reported pro- 
ceeding under its own power.

In spite of the offer by the 
Soviet leader, Mr Gorbachov, 
to exlead his country’s eight- 
south unilateral unclear test 
ban, Weston analysts said 
yesterday that Moscow wiB 
have to resum e testing soon if 
it is not to fall behind in the 
arms race with die United 

S jatju. 

They said that Mr 
Gorbachov’s latest offer 
should be seen mainly as a 

propaganda gesture intended 

to exploit the fact that the US 
has continued undear tests as 
part of President Reagan’s 
defence modernization pro- 
gramme doing the Soviet 
Union’s • self-imposed 

mn ralwiiim. 

Moscow wiB bow be able to 
place the blame femly on the 
US when it starts testing 
again. 

There are a number of new 
nuclear weapons being devel- 
oped by the Soviet Union 
which win have to be tested 
before they can be deployed. 

One of the main additions to 
the Soviet unclear arsenal sfUl 
doe for testing is the SSNX23 
submarine-branched missile, 
which will be carried on Delta 
111 submarines. They will be 
larger and carry more war- 
heads — probably between 
seven and 10 per missile — 
than their predecessors. 

The Soviet Union’s modern- 
ization programme for its 
short-range SS21 and SS23 
missiles will also need testing, 
as will its plan to develop a 
follow-on missile to the triple- 
warheaded SS20s, now almost 
10 yean old. 

Moscow is believed to have 
carried oat must of the tests 
needed for the development of 
, its two big land-based inter- 
i continental ballistic missiles — 
the SSX24 and the SSX25 - 
i before Mr Gorbachov an- 
nounced bis unilateral freeze 
on nuclear testing in August. 
There was a busy test schedule 
before Mr Gorbachov's 
anooncement. 

Western analysts have be- 
lieved all along that Mr 
Gorbachov HwiiM to intro- 
duce a unclear freeze last year 
mamly for propaganda pur- 
poses and never really expect- 
ed it to be taken up fay the US, 
particularly as Moscow was 
well aware that the US still 
seeded tests in connection

Svetlana 
maybe 
trying to 
return 

From Christopher Walker 
Moscow 

After talks here between 
Svetlana Alliluyeva, Stalm s 
daughter, and officials at 
US Embassy, there is specula- 
tion that she and her 14-year- 
old daughter Olga may 

seeking to go back to the West. 

A senior US Embassy offi- 
cial confirmed to The Times 
yesterday that the discussions 
with the mother and daughter 
had vniwn place but refused to 

be drawn on the subject 
The disclosure followed a 
nu m ber of private reports that 
both Stalin’s daughter and 
granddaughter, who was bom 
m the US, had been growing 
increasingly dissatisfied with 
their life in the USSR. 

Both have been living in 
Georgia, the southern state 
where Stalin himself was bom 
and where bis name is still 
revered. . , . , 

Although no official infor- 
mation is available the friends 
have spoken about depression 
and discontent about the 
treatment given by the Soviet 
authorities in the Georgian 
town of Tbilisi. 

The US Embassy official 
said that Olga, the daughter of 
Svetlana’s unsuccessful third 
marriage to an American ar- 
chitect, Mr William Peters, 
and Svetlana herself were still 
regarded by the US authorities 
as American citizens. 

This was despite Svetlana’s 
spectacular retu rn here in 
November 1984 when she told 
a news conference for careful- 
ly-selected Western reporters 
that riie had not known “a 
single day of freedom in the 
West”.

Th e ven u e of the co n ference 
had to be changed at short 
notice from a ball near the 
centre of Dur ham to an outly- 
ing Indian suburb after Zulus 
armed with guns, spears, pet- 
rol bombs and stones attacked 

organizers as they registered 
delegates on Saturday. 

The attackers, believed to 
be members of the conserva- 
tive Inlcatha organization of 
Chief Gatsha Butheiezi, the 
Chief Minister of the 
KwaZulu tribal “homeland”, 
came off worst, however. One 
was shot and an o t her set 
alight. 

The main force behind the 
committee which . organized 
the conference is the United 
Democratic Front, which 
shares the vaguely socialist 
political aims of the outlawed 
African National Congress, 
The UDF and in hatha, which 
was denounced in a resolution 
passed al the conference, have 
moved increasingly into a 
state of open war. 

Before the opening of the 
conference, delegates stood 
with raised fists and observed 
a minute of silence in memory 
of Mr Moses Mabhida, the 
leader of the banned South 
African Communist Party, 
who died recently in Mozam- 


bique. The ANC operates in 
alliance with the party* 

The Durban conference was 
a follow-up to one at Witwa-

partially satisfied. But many 
others have not.

Machel gives three aides wide powers 


Maputo (Reuter) — Presi- 
dent Samora Machel of Mo- 
zambique has given sweeping 
powers to three of his closest 
advisers in an attempt to run 
bis battered country and its 
anti-rebel war effort more 
efficiently, 

A top-level government 
shake-up, announced little 
more than 24 hours before 
President Machel set off for 
Moscow on a surprise visit, 
may be only the start of a series 
of leadership changes, ruling 
FreUmo Party sources said. 


A communique issued late 
on Friday divided -government 
ministries into three sections 
under the supreme authority of 
three members of the Freluno 
polithuro. 

The most significant change 
was the recall of array General 
Alberto Giipande. a folk hero, 
to the capital to take charge of 
the war against rebels which 
Mozambique says are backed 
by South Africa. 

The reshuffle also dearly 
sought to tackle Mozambique's 


worsening economic situation, 
the sources said. 

Mr Marcelino dos Santos, 
once Vice-President of 
Frelimo and a prominent 
Marxist theoretician, has been 
moved to the sidelines and his 
job as party secretary for 
economic policy effectively 
split in two.He becomes secre- 
tary of the permanent commis- 
sion of the People's Assembly, 
an administrative position 
with little power. 

The new party economic 


supremos are Mr Mario 
Machungo, nominally Plan- 
ning Minister but assigned to

guishing as minister without 
portfolio in the President's 
office.

Museveni , 
forces 
wind up 
campaign 

From Charles Harrison 
Nairobi 

The National Resistance 
Army of President Museveni 
has taken the towns of Arua 
and Moyo in north-west 
Uganda, virtually ending the 
campaign which began when 
it captured Kampala at the 
end of January. 

The West Nile district, sepa- 
rated from the rest of Uganda 
by the Albert Nile, was liberat- 
ed at the weekend in a two- 
pronged advance, with one 
NRA group moving north to 
Arua from the road-rail bridge 
at Pakwach. north of Lake 
Albert, and the other crossing 
by ferry at Laropi. dose to the 
Sudan border, and advandng 
on Moyo. 

Despite its cautious ad- 
vance. the NRA met no 
significant resistance. Both 
towns were deserted and had 
been thoroughly looted. 

Troops of the former ruling 
Military Council, who bad 
been massed in the West Nile 
area, appear to have fled to 
Zaire or Sudan or to have gone 
to ground in their home 
villages, often abandoning 
their weapons as they fled. 

The former head of state, 
General Tito Okello, the for- 
mer army commander. Gen- 
eral Basilio Okello, and other 
leaders of the ousted regime, 
are in Sudan. 


Lesotho’s rocky path 


Scholar king finds 
politics a problem 


On January 20. Chief f-enb ua 
Jonathan, who had ruled Leso- 
tho since independence from 
Britain in 1966. was peacefully 
removed from power. Michael 
Hornsby, in the first of two 
articles, reports from Maseru 
on the new coalition of milita- 
rists and loyalists running the 
small kingdom. 

There was dancing in the 
streets of Maseru, Lesotho's 
tray capital, at the news of 
Chief Jonathan's fall. After 
two decades of increasingly 
autocratic rule, he was deeply 



Major-General Lekhanya: 
Authority unclear, 
unpopular, despite attempts 
(more successful abroad than 
at home) to boost his stature 
by codring a snook at bis grant 
neighbour. South Africa. 

There had been no elections 
since 1970, which Chief Jona- 
than cancelled when the vote 
count showed he was losing, 
and the armed Youth League 
of Jus Basotho National Party 
was oot of controL A mutiny by 
a small faction within the 
Army sympathetic to the 
League precipitated the coop. 

The new rulers have certain- 
ly restored a measure of calm. 
"It was common to hear 
g unfir e at night in Maseru,” 
said one Western diplomat. 
"Now yon don't. Generally 
people are much more relaxed 
and spend less time looking 
over their shoulders." 

There is little sign, however, 
of an early return to civilian 
rule. An announcement last 
Thursday by King 
Moshoeshoe bans all political 
activity and provides for a jail 
sentence iff op to two years for 
anyone violating the order. ^ 

After the coup, executive 
ami legislative authority was 
vested in the 47 -year-old King, 
a scholarly man educated at 
Ampleforth College (like 
many of his subjects, he is a 
Roman Catholic) and Oxford, 
who played no political role 
under the previous 
government. 

The exact relationship be- 
tween the King and Major- 
General Justin Lekhanya, 
also aged 47, the Army com- 
mander who led the coup, is 
not entirely dear. The Army 
chief' drafts both a six-man 
. Military Council and a subor- 
dinate Council of Ministers 


appointed by the King. The 
King, however, presides each 
week over an informal joint 
session of the two councils, 
and his assent to decisions 
seems to be more than 
formality. . 

King Moshoeshoe has spo- 
ken pnblidy since the coup of 
a "new Lesotho” which as- 
pires to make a complete 
break with the previous soci- 
ety in which, in his words, "a 
person's fife was do longer 
considered to be different from 
that of a house fly". 

Under a general amnesty 
proclaimed on January 31, an 
undisclosed cumber of mem- 
bos of the Lesotho liberation 
Army (LLA\ the shadowy 
anti-Jonathan guerrilla move- 
ment that .operated mainly 
from South African soil, are 
said to have retimed to Leso- 
tho and surrendered then- 
weapons. 

The leader of thellA, the 
67-year-old Mr Ntsu Mok- 
heMe, who went into exile (and 
now lives in South Africa) 
after being cheated of power 
by Chief Jonathan in 1970, 
has yd to be lured back. 

Despite the ban on political 
utility, representatives of 
four small political parties, 
including the Gog's awn 
Marrmafton Freedom Party, 
were allowed to bold talks with 
Mr MokheUe in a Johannes- 
burg hotel last week. On their 
return to Lesotho, they called 
on the Gover nme nt to negoti- 
ate with him;

Row in Pretoria over

From Oar Correspondent, Johannesburg 


A storm has blown up over 
a special -allocation of shares 
for South African Cabinet 
ministers in a huge public 
issue by an insurance compa- 
ny, winch was 30 per cent 
over-subscribed. 

Seven Cabinet ministers 
and two deputy ministers paid 
102,050 rand' (£33,250) for 
preferential allocation _ of 
32,700 shares in Metropolitan 
Life, which is controlled by 
the Afrikaans insurance giant 
Sanlanj. 

The shares, allocated to 
them at 3.15 rand, opened on 
the Johannesburg Stock Ex- 
change at 4 rand. Mf Chris 


Hennis. Minister of Constitu- 
tional Development and Plan- 
ning, -sold his 5,000 shares

rand Mr Kent Durr. Deputy 
Minister of Trade and Indus- 
tries, made a 550 rand profit 
on 2,700 of his 3.000 shares. 

President Botha said the 
private financial dealings of 
Cabinet ministers was of no 
concern to him, provided they 
did not entail a conflict of 
interest . . 

-If such a conflict arises it is 
the duty of the' individual

So when you’re thinking about their future,

From Michael Hamlyn 
Delhi 

A much-needed success 
came yesterday for the securi- 
ty forces in Punjab, who 
announced that they had cap- 
tured three out of four Sikh 
terrorists responsible for eight 
random killings on Saturday. 

They were taken by police 
and paramilitary forces at a 
farm house not far from where 
the killings took place, around 
the curfew-bound town of 
Nakodar in Juflunder district 

An official report from 
Jull under said the killers had 
struck from a Jeep, which zig- 
zagged through villages, firing 
indiscriminately. They first 
hit a barber's shop, virtually 


certain to be occupied by 
Hindus since religious Sikhs 
do not trim their hair or 
beards, killing three people 
including the barber. 

In another village they 
killed a grocer and a cycle 
repair man. In the next place 
they fired at three people 
sitting by a brick kiln, killing 
two and fatally injuring a 
third. 

A telephone caller claimed 
responsibility for the killings 
for tbe “Dashmesh 
Regiment” The name means 
“tenth" and refers to the tenth ‘ 
guru of the Sikh religion. Guru 
Gobind Singh, who gave tbe 
Sikhs their soldier/sami rules 
of dress and behaviour. 


The Dashmesh Regiment 
used to be known as the 
mili tary arm of the militant 
All-India * Sikh Students’ 
Federation. 

A si milar caller claimed 
responsibility for tbe massacre 
the day before in Ludhiana, 
where seven people, mostly 
from a right-wing Hindu orga- 
nization, were killed while 
exercising in a park. 

The operation against the 
killers involves a big search 
along the banks of the River 
Bess, long thought to be a 
hide-out for the rebels, who 
are fighting for a Sikh-domi- 
nated independent country. 

It is led by Mr J.F. Rebeiro, 
appointed director-general of 


Punjab police at the weekend, 
whose aim is to lift the morale 
and the abilities of the force, 
which is thought to have been 
widely penetrated by 
extremists. 

Mr R^jiv Gandhi, the Indi- 
an Prime Minister, has re- 
ceived reports of the Punjab 
situation from two close col- 
leagues, Mr Arun Nehru, a 
cousin, who is minister in 
charge of police and internal 
security, and Mr Aijun Singh, 


(I) party and architect of last 
yeart Punjab accord. 

The stale’s Chief Minister, 
Mr Surjil Singh Barnala, also 
came to Delhi on a surprise 
visit. 


Howe faces Indian concern on Sikhs 


From Our Own Correspondent, Delhi 


Sir Geoffrey Howe, the 
Foreign Secretary, arrived 
here late last night at tbe start 
of a visit in which be wffl hear 
a great deal about Indian 
concern over lenient treatment 
of Sikh extremism in Britain. 

Aj Punjab again explodes 
into flam**, the inHhn Gov- 
ernment needs all the help it 
can get in controlling Sikh 
extremism, which it sees as 
faded and encouraged from 
abroad. 

The Indians are, of coarse, 
particularly angry at what 
they see as Pakistan’s role in 
encouraging, training and 
equipping the terrorists, but 
Britain is also widely blamed 
for not stamping more vehe- 
mently on the exiles. 

“American Sikhs raise tbe 
money, r«n«Hmi Sikhs pro- 
vide the muscle, bat British 
Sikhs do the p lanning, ” I was 
told. A senior official added: 
“It is of paramount impor- 


tance (hat Britain be seen as 
doing more to stop it 
happening.” 

Indian officials are not keen 
aga in to hear d» rt British law 
does not allow (he police to act 
against the extremists, who 
have bn3t a “government In 
exile” in Britain, with Presi- 
dent, Prime Minister and min- 
isters. They wooW tike to see a 
change in the law that wiD 
per mit action. 

When Mr Rajiv Gandhi 
visited Britain in October, 
Mrs Thatcher offered to ex- 
tend the “te r rori s m” danse in 
extradition agreements to in- 
clude India. This would have 
the effect of removing the 
political defence against extra- 
dition. But India has said that 
this is not enough. It particu- 
larly wants removed the 
“humanitarian'' safeguard 
which could allow a Sikh to 
argue that be would net receive 
a fair trial in India 


because be is a Sikh. It also 
wants the list of extraditable 
offences extended. 

Britain is considering an 
Indian formolatiou of a pro- 
posed extradition treaty, and a 
reply from British officials is 
awaited here. 

Indian parliamentarians 
and the Indian media do not 
accept the sophisticated expla- 
nations offered by British 
officials on why they cannot 
take action against extremist 
leaders in the UK. Indeed, 
Indian public opinion is often 
inflamed by the freedom and 
patronage that is given to 
them. 

There is a common percep- 
tion In India that the United 
Steles is working towards tbe 
“Balkanization” of the coun- 
try, and that Mis Thatcher is 
“more pro-American than Mr 
Reagan”. Tbe argument goes 
that she is used as a “cat's 

paw” in encouraging the 


Khalfotanis. That is the ex- 
treme view. 

Than is another view widely 
held here that, became the 
Conservative Party is in trou- 
ble in the pops, the British 
Government is anxious to 
garner votes from tbe immi- 
grant community, of which the 
Sikhs form a large proportion. 

A major British public rela- 
tions effort is needed here to 
change this perception. 

Sir Geoffrey will today visit 
the funeral sites of Mahatma 
Gandhi and Mrs Indira Gan- 
dhi, before meeting the Presi- 
dent of India and tbe External 
Affairs Minister. Tomorrow 
he flies to Agra to see the Taj 
Mahal ami to visit a typical 
country village, later calling on 
the Prime Minister. 

On Wednesday he wifl go to 
Bombay before flying* mi to 
Islamabad for a three-day visit 
to Pakistan.

Sudan poll bypasses rebel South

Aegean 
quake was 
predicted 

FrouMario Mediano 
Athens 

A powerful earthquake 
measuring 6.1 on the Richter 
scale shook the central Aegean 
Sea on Saturday night, and a 
physicist revealed that he had 
predicted the shock to the 
Greek Government four days 
before. Police said the tremor 
caused no casualties or 
damage. 

The Athens observatory an- 
nounced that the epicentre 
was 13S miles east-north-east 
of Athens, between die islands 
of Euboea and Chios. 

Dr Panayotis Varotsos, as- 
sistant professor of physics at 
Athens University, who leads 
a team working on earthquake 
prediction, went on tdevtsion 1 
soon after tbe 8.35pm shock to 
allay fears of stronger tremors 
■to follow. 

“We forecast tbe earth- 
quake with great precision on 
March 25,” Dr Varotsos said, 
showing a telegram sent on 
that day. /He said he had 
immediately informed the 
Government and urged it not 
to put out a warning, as the 
shock would be at sea 

The method devised by Dr 
Varotsos and two colleagues is 
known as VAN, from their 
initials. It intercepts ground 
electric signals that precede 
tremors and interprets them 
to forecast earthquakes up to a 
week in advance.

Sony is waging to fry to "|ake 
8mm video the standard oi 
the future. ■ 

They dash up to people^ 
tbe street and persuade them 
to try tbe Sony eram 
camcorder, or ramera-recora- 
er which combines recording 
and playback in one mat. The 
campaign results play nightiy 
in Sony’s television 

^TheSess or feilure of the 


sales drive will most probably 

dictate how quickly other 

Japanese manufacturers move 
heavily into 8mm, and wheth- 
er or not they try to make the 
new, smaller, lighter cameras 
with their thinner tapes sup- 
plant the standard half-inch 
VHS and Betamax formats. 

All the big Japanese manu- 
facturers have had the 8mm 
technology for some time, but 
Sony decided to jump into the 
mark et ahead of everybody 
else to reap early profits and 
lead the market away from 
VHS and its own Betamax. 

“Sony was not really ready 
to go when it announced it. It 
was basically an attempt to 
upstage the other manufactur- 
ers av»d change the tides of the 
game,” said a foreign analyst 
of tire electronics market. 

“It may be successful but it 
is costly getting in loo early 
before the market is ready” 
Sony’s high-risk marketing 
has been forced on the 
by declining sales of its 
Betamax cameras and decks 
which have been losing 
ground to VHS, on which all 
the rest of the world’s manu- 
facturers standardized. 

ft is trying to recover its 
market share in one of Japan's 
Largest and most highly com- 
petitive exports and change 
video habits worldwide. 

So for Sony claims to have 
about SO per cent of the 8mm 
market in Japan. This year it 
will put one and a half million 
camcorders into the home 
market Only Canon and 
Sanyo have followed suit with 
competing 8mm cameras. 

The other manufacturers 
are hanging bade to see what 
foe biggest of them all 
Matsushita, make' of Nation- 
al and Panasonic, will do. 

Matsushita makes 8mm 
video cameras for Kodak in 
foe US, but it has not ventured 
into tire field at home, with 
good reason. 

Kodak's sales have been 
slow in the USand the effect 
of Sony's 8mms in the home 
market has been to hit sales of 
all video cameras, as consum- 
ers wonder what to do. 

The choices are to stay with 
the widely-accepted VHS for- 
mal with its vast choice of 
pre-recorded tapes for playing 
at home, switch to 8mm as the 
wave of the future, or logo for 
the latest entrant into foe field,

VHS compact is a new 
competitor from foe Japan 
Victor company, which uses

tape but is much lighter and

From M.G.G. Piilai 
Koala Lam pur . 

The Malaysian Prime Min- 
ister, Datuk Seri Mahathir 
Mohamed, is expected to call 
a snap general election next 
month, a year ahead of 
schedule. 

An election had been ex- 
pected for the past six months, 

despite the crises the ruling 
National Front coalition has 
had to face in that period. The 
Best bet here is any day 
between April 30 and May 3. 

But the general outlook is 
sombre enough for many to 
predict that the National 
Front will lose its two-thirds 
majority in Parliament, the 
pQchotogica! control that foe 
. Malay-led Government insists 
it needs to rule effectively. 

A drop below that could 
lead to increasing pressures on 
Datuk Seri Mahathir's effec-

A delay, however, could be 
disa&roits, his principal advis-

Steamship Mutual Underwrit- 
ing Association Led and An- 
other v Trollope & Colls (City) 
Ltd ami Others 
Before Lord Justice May, Lord 
Justice Lloyd and Mr Justice 
Caulfield 

[Judgment given March 13] 

To issue a writ without any 
present intention of serving a 
statement of cbdxn and wtaen 
there was no evidence or ground 
upon which one could reason- 
ably be served was. even in the 
context of a building dispute, an 
abuse of the process of the court. 
There was no role oflaw that all 
damage caused by breaches of 
the same duty by the same party 
under the same contract gave 
rise to a single cause of action 
which accrued when the first 
item of damage ocained. 

The Court of Appeal so bdd, 
dismissing an appeal by the 
plaintiffs. Steamship Mutual 
Underwriting Association Ltd 
and Steamship Mutual Under- 
writing Association (Property) 
Ltd, from orders of Judge John 
Newey, QC. who, sitting as an 
Official Referee on October 2, 
1985, had refused them leave to 
ream cod the statement of daim 
in an action against the defen- 
dants, Trollope & ColB (City) 
Ltd. Newman Levinson & Part- 
nets, Haden Young Ltd, Revan 
Hayward and Partners, S. 
Jam pel & Partn ers, and Richard 
Hits (a firm), and had dismissed 
< their action, against the fifth - 
I defendant for want of prosecu- 
tion, under the inherent juris- 
diction. of the cou rt and Order 
19 rule 1 of the Rules of the 
Supreme Court. 

Mr Michael Harvey, QC. Mr 
Antony Edwards-Stuart for the 
plaintiff; Mr Nicholas Dennys 
for the first defendant; Mr John 
L. Powell for the second defeih- 
dant; Mr Desmond Wright, QC 
and Mr Martin Bowdery for the 
fifth defendant. 

LORD JUSTICE MAY said 
that be could not express ap- 
proval of the practice of issuing 
a writ, in wide tains so as to 
cover any cause of action which 
the plaintiff thought might 
reasonably arise without any 
intention at the time of 
prosecuting the action in ac- 
cordance with the Rules of the 
Supreme Court, which were 


intended lo govern (he course of 
properly conducted litigation. 

When a defendant, having 
received such a writ, let sleeping 
dogs He and did nothing to 
procure service of a statement of 
claim, the last vesuge of lift left 
the litigation's moribund car- 
cass. 

It was dear from Hytroc 
Conveyers Ltd v Conveyors 
International Lid ([1983] 1 
WLR 44) that a p lain tiff should 
state at the outset what allega- 
tions he was making and he facts 
on which they were based; if he 
did not be ought not to be 
su prised if the defendants did 
not take steps to put an end to 
the inanimate litigation. ■ 
Furthermore, to issue a writ 
when there was no evidential 
basis on which a statement of 
daim could be founded and 
without any intention to serve 
one was an abuse of the process 
of the court (see Creek City Co 
Ltd v Demetriou ([1983] 2 .411 
ER92IJV 

If the fifth defendant had 
called fora statement of claim to 
be served in accordance with the 
time limits in the Rules, as it 
would have been entitled to do, 
the plaintiffs would have had 
either to decline to do so, and 
risk having the action struck 
out, or to serve a statement of 
daim which they knew bad no 
foundation. That such a di- 
lemma would arise in those 
circumstances indicated that the 
issuing of the writ was an 
improper use of the process. 

It should seldom be necessary 
to issue a • protective writ to 
prevent a limitation defence 
from accruing; even in personal 
injury litigation where the fiiO 
extent of an injury took time to 
become apparent the provisions 
for liability and quantum to be 
tried separately would in many 
cases obviate the need to issue a 
writ before the evidence to 
establish liability was to ban d. 

Good justice needed to be 
swift justice; the limitation peri- 
ods were generous and any 
artificial extension needed to be 
fully justified. 

The plaintiffs had argued that 
the claims in their proposed 
reamendment constituted 
merely further particulars of the 
cause of action endorsed on the 
writ; no claim against the fifth 


defendant had previously been 

made in the statement of claim. 

A cause of action had been 
defined by Lord Justice Diplock 
in Letang »’ Cooper ([ 1965] 1 QB 
232, 242-3) as a factual situation 
the existence of which entitled 
one person to obtain from the 
court a remedy against another. 

Contrary to the plaintiffs' 
submissions. Idyll Lid v 
Dinerman Davison & Hillman 
((1971) 1 Const U 294) did not 
lay down anew principle that all 
damage to property flowing 
from breaches of the same duty 
under the same contract by the 
same party constituted only one 
cause of action. 

The Court of Appeal in Idyll 
had merely applied existing 
principles to the facts of that 
case, as the courts had done in 
Conquer v Boot ([1928] 2 KB 
336 and Brickfield Properties 
Ltd v Newton ([1971] I WLR 
862). 

In this case it was inconceiv- 
able that, if the plaintiffs had 
obtained judgment on their 
unreameuded claim and had 
then discovered the defects in 
respect of which they sought to 
reamend and started a second 
action, they would have been 
met with a successful plea of res 
judicata. 

The judge had been right to 
adopt a broad approach. It was 
necessary to ask in broad terms 
when on the facts the claim 
which it was sought to add could 
first have been sued upon and 
whether it had realistically been 
before the court on the 
unreamended pleadings. 

Although the failure to plead 
in the statement of claim a cause 
of action mentioned in the 
endorsement on the writ did 
not, unless the causes of action 
were mutually inconsistent, 
constitute an abandonment of 
that cause of action ( Lewis & 
Lewis v Dumford ((1907) 24 
TLR 64) was probably wrongly 
decided), when considering 
whether an amendment con- 
stituted a new cause of action for 
the purpose of section 35 of the 
Limitation Act 1980 it was 
necessary to look at the state- 
ment of claim and the proposed 
amendment, and not at the 
endorsement on the writ (which 
according to Order 6, rule 
2(1X0 of the Rules of the 


Supreme Court need not dis- 
close any cause of action), and 
assess whether, avoiding un- 
necessary- subtleties, the amend- 
ment did add a new cause of 
anion, as defined in Letang. to 
what was already in the state- 
ment of claim. 

The proposed reamendmem. 
on that test, did add a new cause 
of action which was not based 
on substantially the same facts. 
The action against the fifth 
defendant would be dismissed 
for want of prosecution. 

The delay in formulating and 
prosecuDng the daim against it 
had been inordinate and in- 
excusable and had prejudiced 
the court's ability to do justice 
between the parties. 

LORD JUSTICE LLOYD, 
caucurring, said that the correct 
approach involved the court in 
the sometimes difficult task of 
drawing a line between factual 
situations which were part of the 
same cause of anion and those 
which constituted a separate 
one. 

Drawing lines in doubtful 
cases was one of the things that 
judges were for. Conquer v Boot 
and Idyll clearly fell one side of 
the line; this case equally clearly 
fed the other. 

The approach for which the 
plaintiffs had argued would in 
most cases work against the 
interests of plaintiffs in building 
cases, where some damage often 
did not appear for some time 
after other damage had oc- 
curred; the plaintiffs* approach 
would in all cases deprive. such 
persons of any right to sue for 
later damage once they bad 
obtained judgment for the first . 

Mr Justice Caulfield agreed.

Ever wonaereawny so 
many people are attracted to an 
Abbey National mortgage? 




Could it be because there's now a lower rate of 
interest for all new mortgages, regardless of how much is 
borrowed? 

Or is it simply because our local managers are able to 
make lending decisions instantly? 

Then again, perhaps it's the bridging loan facility for 
existing Abbey National borrowers that brings people to 
our door. 

Or it could even be the benefits ofbeing a member of 
the Abbey National Property Sendee that’s proving to be 
so attractive. Like the 10% off our Property Service 
estate agent’s fees. And- the guarantee of anew mortgage 
for those selling and the person buying their home. 

so useful when it comes to 


househunting. Because it confirms how much they can 
borrow and means an offer will be taken seriously. 
Providing a real advantage over other potential buyers. 

Perhaps the reason is simply because we can 
recommend some excellent insurance schemes to help 
repay a mortgage. 

Or that wdthin days of a mortgage application the 
survey will be carried out and the written offer issued. 

When you add it all up you’ll soon see why an Abbey 
National mortgage is such an attractive proposition. r\ 

So if you haven’t got one, why not make j J 
things easier for yoursefi* and call in to your local J / 
Abbey National branch?

Everybody knows that society is getting 
more and more violent — or is it? In the 
first of a three-part series, Alan Franks 
looks back to the ‘good old days’ and finds 
large-scale riots and vicious street attacks 


Statistics, proverbially the 
damnedest liar known to man, are 
invoked whenever we wish - as 
the British never tire of doing - to 
compare the present in an 
unfavourable light with the past 

And each time society takes 
recourse to nostalgia, or seeks 
revenge over the corpse of some 
golden age lately assassinated, it is 
violence which, more than any 
other culprit, lands in the dock. In 
1986 the courts of social morality 
find themselves in almost perma- 
nent session, but hardly fin- the 
first time. 

The comparative figures on 
Man's inhumanity to two of its 
most defenceless fellows — the 
child and the domestic animal — 
make for an incriminating read. In 
both categories, abuse, whether 
through individual aggression or 
its collective equivalent, neglect, 
has risen startlingly in the past few 
years. 

Individual acts of 
violence have almost 
doubled in 10 years 


Already we stub our toe on the 
first paradox; for were it not for 
the very existence (and heightened 
vigilance) of the monitoring agen- 
cies, the statistics which are the 
result of their work could hardly 
be so damning. In other words, 
what appeare to be a proof of 
callousness is at the same time a 
token of compassion. 

Last year the Home Office 
published a 200-page volume of 
data on crime. It reveals, among 
other things, that individual acts 
of violence rose from 130 per 
100,000 members of the popula- 
tion in 1974 to nearly twice that 
figure 10 years later, that burglary 
doubled, robbery trebled, criminal 
damage soared sevenfold, with 
only fraud and sexual offences 
showing a negligible movement 

But again, do the figures mean 
simply that matters are getting 
worse, or that the police - 
supposedly not only the scourge 
but also the exposers of violence 
and its related ills — are getting 
better? 

We then come to one of the 
most challenging pieces of Home 
Office evidence — a regional 
breakdown of crime in 1984, with 
the prosperous south-east Lon- 
don excepted, emerging relatively 
guiltless while a black belt of 
felony encompasses the country’s 
northern girth from Merseyside, 
via Greater Manchester and West 
Yorkshire, to Humberside. With 
South Wales, the West Midlands 
and Geveland dotted as accom- 
plices on the map, the spectre of 
unemployment as the true culprit 
raises its unlovely head. 

As far as violence itself is 
concerned, the Home Office fig- 
ures tell us that the average annual 


percentage change during those 10 
years has been: 

Violence against the person: up 

by 6; 

Homicide: up by 0.3; - 

Wounding, or other act endan- 
gering life: up by 11 

For the popular press of 1986, 
violence remains a lurid if legiti- 
mate preoccupation. On March 
1 1. five days after the alleged rape 
of the Ealing vicar's daughter, the 
Daily Mirror was itemizing 14 
comparable incidents said to have 
occurred in the ensuing 96 hours, 
ranging from the assault of a 17- 
year-old girl in a Covent Garden 
bus station to the rape of a 78- 
year-old widow living alone in 
London's Notting HilL 

Taken together with the horrific 
muggings in our inner city areas, 
the excesses of Britain's soccer 
hooligans at home and abroad, not 
to mention the episodes on picket 
lines, it is easy to form the 
impression that violence, both of a 
public and private nature, has 
plumbed new depths. 

Unfortunately, it is not quite 
that simple. For example, what 
would we now make of an affair 
like the Gordon Riots of the late 
18th century which, as an expres- 
sion of civil revolt against the fear 
of Catholic emancipation, claimed 
several hundred lives on the 
streets of London? Or the epidem- 
ic of "garrotting'' nearly one 
century later? This Victorian for- 
bear of mugging was a form of 
violent robbery which was for the 
most part practised by gangs of 
three - a “front-stair and “back- 
stall" acting as look-outs on either 
side of a “nasty man" whose 
function was most graphically 
described in Volume Seven of the 
Comhill Magazine of 1863: 

“The thud ruffian, coming 
swiftly up, flings his right arm 
around the victim, striking him 
smartly on the forehead. Instinc- 
tively he throws his bead back, 
and in that movement loses every 
chance of escape. His throat is 
fully offered to his assailant, who 
instantly embraces it with his left 
arm, the bone just above the wrist 
being pressed against the “apple" 
of the throat. At the same time the 
garrotter, dropping his right hand, 
seizes the other’s left wrist; and 
thus supplied with a powerful 
lever, draws his back upon his 
breast and there holds him. The 
“nasty man's" part is done: His 
burden is helpless from the first 
moment, and speedily becomes 
insensible; all Ac has now to do is 
to be a little merciful” 

The correspondent who wrote 
that claimed to have visited an 
experienced practitioner in his 
prison ceU, and to have offered 
himself as an experimental sacri- 
fice. Garrotting, he concluded, 
was the “most inclement ruffian- 
ism that ever disgraced the 19th 
century.” 

The Times meanwhile felt the 



THE VICTIMS WHO CAN'T FIGHT BACK 


The sad evidence: acts of violence against children and animals have risen in a startling way 


impulse to attribute such deeds to 
the influx of a foreign strand of 
criminal immorality. Gone, it 
seemed, was the semblance of 

good manners, however dup- 
licitous, of English highway rob- 
bery: “Without the old challenge 
and parley in use among high- 
waymen, your garrotter knocks a 
man's bead against the kerbstone 
as the best way of getting at bis 
pocket . . . our streets are actually 
not as safe as they were in the days 
of our grandfathers. We have 
slipped back to a state of affairs 
which would be intolerable even 
in Naples". 

The fair challenge of the good 
length ball had, as it were, been 
supplanted by a barrage of bounc- 
ers. What The Times omitted to 
notice was that those grand- 
paternal days were characterized 
by street disorder on a consider- 
able scale in the aftermath of the 
Napoleonic Wars, which gave 
birih to the original “Sus" laws. 

Every time violence mugs its 
way onto the social or political 


A chief constable 
described crime as

agenda some form of atavism 
seems to permeate the responses 
of the outraged; hence in 1974 Sir 
Keith Joseph's declaration that 
“for the first time since the great 
Tory reformer Sir Robert Peel set 
up the Metropolitan Police Force, 
areas of our cities are becoming 
unsafe for peaceful citizens by 
night, and some even by 
day . . .Rome itself fell destroyed 
from inside. Are we to be de- 
stroyed too, a country which 
successfully repelled and de- 
stroyed Philip of Spain, Napoleon, 
the Kaiser, Hitler?" 

Five years later Philip Knight- 
ley, president of the Association of 
Chief Police Officers, was saying:

sonal attacks and injury, and 
above all the use of violence in all

the history of violence in Britain is 
Hooligan; the work of Dr Geoffrey 
Pearson, senior lecturer in sociolo- 
gy at Middlesex Polytechnic. This 
is what he has to say about the 
received notion of a tranquil 
tradition in our society: 

“The view ofBri tain’s history as 
founded on stability and decency 
is deeply ingrained in tile self- 
understanding of the British peo- 
ple. The present, we need hardly 
be told, is extremely tense. But the 
past, say the accumulated tradi- 
tions of our national culture, was a 
“golden age" of order and securi- 
ty. Nowadays we need the iron fist 
of policing in order that we might 
sleep soundly in our beds. Where- 
as formerly we did not, and our 
love of tolerant freedom was 
spontaneous, nmwgimwntgri and 
naturaL 

“The extremity of these awful 
judgments against the moral dete- 
rioration of the British people, and 
the enormous vision of chaos and 
disorder which they conjure up, 
:d for a cautious 


. are relatively new to the streets of 
this country." 

Two years earlier Kenneth Ox- 
ford, chief constable of Mersey- 
side, had prophesied: “What we 
are experiencing is not a passing 
phenomenon but a continuing 

process of change in our way of 
life... our customary ways of 
behaving and our traditional val- 
ues are being radically modified." 

The job of the police force, 
claimed Sir Robert Marie in his 
book In the Office of Constable 
(1978), required not only as much 
physical courage and dedication as 
policing parts of Victorian Lon- 
don had done, but a great deal 
more moral courage than had been 
needed by the police at any time 
since Peel And in that same year 
— albeit in the Daily Telegraph — 
James Anderton, chief constable 
of Greater Manchester, was be- 
moaning “the rot that has now 
taken a firm bold in the fabric of 
our society," and describing crime 
in general as Britain's main 
growth industry. 

One of the definitive studies of 


the need 

tion of our thought and 
as we approach these 
matters. Clearly there is an im- 
pressive consistency in this line of 
thinking — both in terms of the 
belief of a pre-existing era of 
tranquility, and in the agreement 
that the natural moderacy of the 
'British way of life' has been 
eclipsed in the hooligan deluge, 

“However, when we come to 
more detailed considerations — 
such as where this ‘golden age' is 
to be located in real historical time 
— then we are confronted with 
such a disorderly jumble of date- 
marks and vague historical allu- 
sion as to allow for wide margins 
of disagreement even among dedi- 
cated ‘tawsmd-ordef enthusiasts. 
Indeed, at the centre of the pre- 
occupation with dedming stan- 
dards and mounting disorder, 
there is an immense historical- 
‘black hofeY* 

In the second and third part of 
this series we visit one of Britain's 
most troubled yet least known 
inner city areas — Chapeltown in 
Leeds — and two neighbourhoods 
in which vigilante patrols are 
taking the law into their own 
bands. From each instance it is not 
possible to conclude that violence 
in Britain today is a phenomenon 
unrelated to youth unemptoyment 
and racial tension. To insist that it . 
is something set apart, moving 
with its own dynamic force 
through a once upstanding social 
field, is merely a 1986 version of 
the Mlf-distanong approach. 

There is even evidence to 


suggest that the police are tacitly, 
if unwillingly, abetting the short- 
term increase in crimes of person- 
al violence by adopting a laissez 
faire approach in the sensitive 
quarters of our cities. 

If we are more violent than 
“before", we are so only in tne 
sense that we have always per- 
ceived that to be the case through- 
out our history. We have a long 
precedent of consistency in our 
self-reproach. 

In the view of Dr George 
GaskeU, lecturer in social psychol- 
ogy at the London School of 
Economics, pessimism is prema- 
ture: “My guess is that over the 
past 10 years the underlying trend 
has has been an increase in 
violence, but producing un- 
equivocal evidence to support 
such an assertion is rather 
/difficult. 

Academics say that 
in the long-term 
crime rates are down 


“Almost certainly there is an 
increase in tte actual /ear of crime; 
by which I mean that people have 
anxieties about being the victim of 
violent crime, and that these are 
disproportionate to the likelihood 
of their actually being a victim. 
And that, curiously enough, may 
in itself provide conditions in 
which cr iminals flourish." 

“If you just go by statistics, it is 
easy to be misled. For example, 
when the Criminal Justice Bill 
came in 20 years ago there was 
obviously a sudden increase in the 
number of community service 
sentences, and hence an apparent 

rise in criminal figures. 

“I don't think it is really very 
helpful for someone to state that 
there is more violence in 1986 
than there was in, say the 1830s. In 
those days society itself probably 
tolerated a higher level of 
violence ... I would say that in 
the long-term historical perspec- 
tive violence is following a down- 
ward trend. It may not be easy for 
us to accept that, for the reason 
that all downward trends are apt 
to be punctuated by upward 
bumps, and we are standing on 
one of those now."

Pop television and la dolce vita 


In terms of one man's success 
in any field Silvio Berlusconi 
can have few European rivals. 
Undisputed master of com- 
mercial television in Italy, and 
now established in France 
with Spain to come, he is the 
self-styled missionary to the 
rest of Europe of the virtues of 
the private television station. 

His mission is to make 
straight the way for commer- 
cial companies by first remov- 
ing the fear that private 
television can be used for 
ideological aims and by point- 
ing out the tonk effect he 
believes it has on a country's 
economy and quality of life. 
With his European empire 
taking shape. Berlusconi is 
now providing the doctrine 
behind it which until now has 
been lacking. He has been seen 
in France, as well as amongst 
Italian intellectuals, as a busi- 
nessman and no more. “He 
even packages women as if 
they are hamburgers", Fellini 
grumbles. 

Yet his victory in Italy is, in 
commercial terms, complete. 
Until 1976 The State Broad- 
casting Corporation had a 
national monopoly. When a 
court ruled that private televi- 
sion stations might operate 
locally, Italy soon found itself 
with not one television com- 
pany, but something ap- 
proaching 3,000, with people 
setting up private transmitting 
studios in their gardens. 

It was from this lawless 
jungle that Berlusconi 
emerged. There are now three 
principal commercial televi- 
sion stations in Italy, Canale 
S. Italia 1 and Rete4. He owns 
them all What he still lacks is 
legislation allowing him to 
work on any more than a local 
basis. All his programmes 
have to be recorded and the 
tapes distributed throughout 
the country and broadcast 
more or less simultaneously to 
get around the court’s ruling. 
This means, among other 
things, that he cannot offer 
news. 

But still he has been able to 


With missionary zeal 
Italian TV mogul 
Silvio Berlusconi 
preaches the value of 
commercial stations 


establish Italy as the continen- 
tal leader in commercial tele- 
vision. The announcement 
earlier this month of a consor- 
tium of French, German and 
British partners (with Spain to 
come) for satellite transmis- 
sion on a European scale 
heralds his latest expansion. 

All that marred the launch 
was that Robert Maxwell his 
British partner, announced 
the agreement a day in ad- 
vance and so spoiled the effect 
of Berlusconi's own press 
conference in Rome. Maxwell 



Beriascoac “People ask why 

my style of TV is so beaBtifrri*- 
will be chairman of the con- 
sortium fora yean Berlusconi 
is permanent managing-direc- 
tor — “the one who will do the 
work" he says. But he thrives 
on work. He mentions casual- 
ly that it has been two nights 
now that he has had no time to 
sleep, and that after news of 
the consortium he had 98 
requests for interviews. 

At, 49 he is neat, well- 
preserved and affable, with a 
ready smile that conceals con- 
siderable tension. His home is 
the magnificent Villa $t 
Martino at Acore some half 
hour’s drive from Milan. He 
bought it from the heirs of the 
Marches? Casati who might 


well have been the sutgect of a 
tele-film himself. He commit- 
ted suicide after shooting his 
wife and her lover. 

Berlusconi can be extremely 
difficult to work with, and has 
lost valuable associates as his 
empire has broadened. But 
while deeply proud of what he 
has achieved singled-handed 
he still sometimes finds his 
success difficult to believe — 
one of his more endearing 
traits. 

He set up his first company 
at the age of 23 and was a 
building millionaire before he 
thought of taming to televi- 
sion. His assets are now 
valued at 6,000 billion lire (a 
bit on the high side he says). 
His Fminvest group has three 
divisions apart from televi- 
sion; construction, publishing, 
hnd insurance and finance. 

His interest in television 
grew out of his building 
activities. He was responsible 
for “Milano 2", a model town 
of 10,000 inhabitants on the 
outskirts of Milan where he 
has his offices. As one of the 
services to the inhabitants he 
offered an internal dosed 
circuit television service. 

He sees commercial televi- 
sion not only as the rival of 
public broadcasting but also as 
its antidote; “When my 
French friends ask me why 
everything is beautiful in my 
style of television, 1 tell them 
to look at public television, 
which must necessarily 
present the realities of life. In 
the news bulletins everything 
that is most tragic and dramat- 
ic is newsworthy and so we 
have a condensation of afl the 
unpleasant events. 

“Commercial television on 
the other hand is a little like 
the advertising which nourish- 
es it -an attractive fable, 
where everybody is beautiful 
everything is elegant, and all 
the children love father and 
mother and are loved in their 
tum. This philosophy is fun- 
damental to everything Ida 

“Television as I produce it 
should contribute to improv- 


ing the taste of the public, the 
awareness of the public. In 
France they have now. seen 
that 'La Cinq* is in anything 
but poor taste .” And he recalls 
with some pride that the 
French opening was prepared' 
in 40 days, had 40 billion lire 
of publicity in advance and for 
the first three months had no 
advertising spot vacant 
Berlusconi sees television 
on a European scale as of 
revolutionary importance to 
European unity. “Look at 
Italy. Television here has been 
the unifying factor in Italian 
culture ana in the language. 


Imag ine if we could create a 
television which went beyond 
national and natural bound- 
aries, a television bom in 
Europe, which thought Euro- 
pean, how useful it would be 
to make each country learn 
about the others. Understand- 
ing is a great stimulus to 
unity." And so, in the imme- 
diate future, Berlusconi's ex- 
traordinary energies! will be 
focused on Italy and his 
European commitments. But 
the United Stales had best

Peter Tnwnor 




the plain set 

In the world of knitting, Patricia Roberts is regarded with 

awe. Her design books sell out in days, her 

high-fashion creations are sold by the world’s exclusive 

boutiques. Sally Brompton talked to the 

woman who turned plain-one, purl-one into an art form 


Ever since Madame Defiage 
and her macabre cronies 
clicked away at the fqot of the 
guillotine, knitting has had a 
somewhat gloomy image. 
Even at best, woollens, in 
common with many of the 
people who knitted them, 
have had a reputation for 
being sensible, cosy and prac- 
tical. A we 11- worn cardigan is 
synonymous with the prover- 
bial pipe and slippers while its" 
op-roarfcet cousin, the twin- 
set, is scarcely the kind of 


nothing- has happened over- 
night. It’s all been just one 
stage after another.” 

The only daughter of a 
county cricketer who died 
when she was a small child, 
she was taught to knit "by her 
grandmother at the age of six 
and proceeded to invent pat- 
terns forher dolls’ clothes. But 
ft was not until her final year 
studying fashion at an school 
that she decided to concen- 
trate on knitwear. * 

“I didn’t fancy being a 


garment to set the fashion . designer in- a factory just 

potting on pockets here, there 


world on fire. 

Then along came Patricia 
Roberts — and knitting has 
never been the same. With a 
wave of her number 12 nee- 
dles, she transformed the 
humdrum woollen workhorse 
into a sexy, glamorous, sophis- 
ticated contender for the high- 
fashion stakes. _ 

Dedicated knitters took on a 
new lease of life and even 
those who had discarded their 
needles after learning to knit- 
one and purl-one at school 
were inspired to rediscover 
their skills in the interests of 
woollen elegance and original- 

‘You create 
your own 
fabrics as well 
as the shapes’ 

ify. With the dedication of a 
true pioneer, Patricia Roberts 
revolutionized hand-knitting 
into an ail form. 

For this shy, former . art 
student it has been a steady 
progression from designing 
knitting patterns for ’’some 
very boring magazines” to 
master-minding an interna- 
tionally acclaimed empire of 
haute couture and design. 

Her recent Design Council 
award for style, a first in the 
knitwear industry, automati- 
cally places her in the running 
for the coveted Design Award 
of the Year, to be selected by 
the Duke of Edinburgh and 
announced at a ceremony in 
June. The council describes 
her work as “an outstanding 
example of British design 
success" Iis members were 
particularly impressed by the 
feet that “despite a consider- 
able growth of sales, the 
highest design standards had 
been maintained throughout 
the growth of the company”. 

With a typical Lancastrian 
realism, Roberts takes it all in 
her stride. “I’m not* 
surprised”, she says of her 
remarkable success, “because 


and everywhere”, she ex- 
plains. “I really wanted to care 
about the things I was making 
and with knitwear you create 
your own fabrics as well as the 
shapes.” 

At that time, the tail-end of 
the Sixties, knitwear was very 
much the poor relation of the 
burgeoning fashion industry, 
with only a handful of French 
designers specializing in fash- 
ionable machine knits. “What 
I wanted was to create band- 
knits ihat looked as if they 
were hand-knitted but were 
sophisticated at the same 
time” Roberts recalls. 

After about three years of 
making up patterns for a well- 
known group of women’s 
magazines she decided to go 
freelance at the age of 26. “In 
those days people tended to do 
hand-knitting for economy 
and magazines wanted copies 
of Marks & Spencer sweaters, 
but you just couldn't compete 
with them in -that way. I 
thought that knitwear had to 
go in a different direction if it 
was going to be worth knitting 
by hand at atL” 

• She began designing for 
more fashion-conscious maga- 
zines such as Honey and 
Petticoat, producing some of 
the first bobble sweaters and 
ones with pictures knitted into 
. them. The turning point came 
when Vogue accidentally pho- 
tographed one of her designs 
in colour and decided to 
feature the garment on a 
fashion page instead of print- 
ing it in black and white as a 
knitting pattern. The maga- 
zine sent her with it to Browns 
of South Moiton Street in the 
hope that the exclusive shop 
would be named as a stockist. 
Browns immediately ordered 
it. and several other designs, 
and Roberts found herself 
with a- regular retail outlet 
Other fashionable stores — 
particularly American ones 
such as Bfoomingdales — be- 
gan demanding her designs. In 
1976 Roberts opened her first 
shop, in Knighisbridge, selling 
both made-up garments and 
knit-kits consisting of pattern 
and yams. The Following year 


she started to sell her own 
yarns wholesale. 

Now aged 40 and with her 
third London shop opening in 
May, Patricia Roberts is an 
international byword in fash- 
ion. She has franchise shops in 
Hong Kong, Cyprus and Mel- 
bourne and about 75 per cent 
of her garments are export- 
ed — mainly to Italy. 

Her new pattern books are 
keenly awaited by her follow- 
ers ami a topic of conversation 
at dinner parties around the 
country. She designs the 
books — stylish masterpieces 
of glamour and glitz — herself 
Her tenth book is due out this 
year. It costs £2.75 in paper- 
back, with hardback compen- 
diums selling for £13.95. The 
initial 30,000 print run of the 
most recent paperback sold 
out almost overnight. 

The artiste herself is seem- 
ingly untouched by her suc- 
cess. “I’ve always been a 
worker”, she says, “a plodder. 
I tend to think I’m not 
ambitious but f must be. 
Other people seem to think I 

am. 

“The most satisfaction 1 get 
out of my work is creating new 
stitches: i suppose I must have 
created hundreds over the 
years. Basically, knitting is 
knit-one, pud-one and it’s 
really just working out varia- 
tions on that theme.” 

She gels ideas for her de- 
signs from everyday life — a 
piece of pottery, perhaps, or a 
Scrabble board. Her grapes 
and cherries have been an all- 
time best-seller, still popular 
after nearly 10 years. “The 
ones 1 like best usually sell the 
best” she says. She was feeling 
particularly pleased when ,we 
met • because she bad just 
discovered how to create a 
curved circle in wool. “I don’t 
often do a plain stocking stitch 
any more." 

She makes up each new 
pattern as she goes along — “I 
keep knitting it up and unrav- 
elling it because 1 keep chang- 
ing my mind” — and then 
writes it down and sends it to 
one of her team of freelance 
knitters to make up. The 
knitters include pensioners 
and people with the kind of 
jobs that enable them to knit 
at work, such as telephonists. 
“The trouble with telephonists 
is that they keep ringing up to 
chat”, Roberts says. 

Her finished garments sell 
for hundreds of pounds — one 
of the most expensive costs 
£525 — and her customers in- 
clude stars of stage, screen and 
fashion salon. The designer 
Jean Muir, who is on the 
board of the Design Council 
and chairs its knitting com- 
mittee. compares Roberts’s

sculptor. “I think of her as 
being much more of a crafts-

‘The ones I

craftsmen who are bringing 
about the most exciting move- 
ment that has happened in 
this country for a century.” 
Roberts likes to think of 
herself as primarily a designer.

uct design and so is my 
husband. We are very much 
design designers.” Her hus- 
band, John Hefternan, is an

I’m not", she says. “I don’t 
have lots of patterned checks 
around the place.” Her four- 
year-old daughter. Amy, is 
already learning to knit 
To the vast majority of her 
devotees, a Patricia Roberts 
number means one which they 
have knitted themselves. A 
typical design, priced at over 
£400 ready-made, would cost 
around £170 to knit in the 
cashmere and angora yam of 
the original and about £40 
with Shetland wool. 

One enthusiast earned a 
year’s free baby-sitting by 
giving away a jersey which 
took her nine months of lunch 
hours to knit. “It wasn’t really 
difficult” she says, “it was 
more frustrating because there 
were so many balls of wool on 
the go at once. It was rather 
like playing a piece of music. 

Once you learn what the notes 
are you can play the piece."

customers who have got stuck. 

One of the problems Rob- 
erts has had is commercial 
imitation of her designs. “It 


when I’ve had a good idea and 
actually worked il out quite 
well and then somebody bas- ' 
lardizes it and makes ft look 
cheap ” She made legal history 
when a Manchester shop own- 
er whom she sued for selling j 
her designs knitted up was 
found guilty of infringing her | 
copyright. 

She has grown accustomed 
to seeing her designs walking 
down the street. “1 don’t often 
see one of my patterns badly 
knitted”, she says, “but what I 
don’t like is seeing them 
knitted in cheap acrylic yams. 
That really upsets me because 
yam makes such a difference 
to the end product” 

Her reserve has prevented 
her from revealing her identity 
to a passing punter. Only once 
has she done so — when, 
many years ago. she saw an 
Englishwoman wearing one of | 
her sweaters in the Kremlin 
museum in Moscow.

One of the more offen- 
sive items I have seen on 
television recently was a 
snappy little drama, re- 
peated many times dur- 
ing January by the IB A. 

The piece showed a snow- 
bound housewife, in distress 
because her central heating 
had ceased to function, making 
a single phone call which 
brought, in short order, a 
smiling gas fitter 
As he departed Into the 
snow, his work done, he 
assured her, smiling, that if 
anything else went wrong she 
had only to ring his masters 
ami aD would be well. 

Last September I visited my 
local gas showroom and asked 
to have part of my central 
heating — two elderly radia- 
tors — replaced. One of them 
had ceased to give oat heat; the 
other, I suspected, might soon 
do the same. A smiling woman 
filled in a form and assured me 
that 1 would bear from them 
very soon. It was wise of me, 
she thought, to have the work 
done before winter set in. 

Some weeks passed. In mid- 
October I rang the gas board 
at Staines (the only number 
the gas board reveals in the 
telephone book). 

A friendly lady, no doubt 
smiling, gave me the number 
of a Mr Hushaby (not his real 
name) in Hounslow. At the 
third time of asking I spoke to 
Mr Hushaby who was desolat- 
ed to hear about my problem. 
There had been, be explained, 
delays. Mr Hushaby came to 
see me and my radiators. He 
would, he said, send me a 
quote for their replacement 
Some weeks passed. In the 
second week of November the 
quote arrived. 1 filled In the 
form, wrote my Visa nmnber 
on the bottom and returned it 
at once. The £239.00 was 
cleared through my Visa ac- 
count on November 28. 

Some .weeks passed. On 
January 8 a gas fitter fame. 
He explained, smiling, that he

PERSON 


Tom Aftken 

didn’t actually work for the 
gas board, but for a private 
firm in Staines, brought in to 
expedite matters. 

He worked, smiling, for 
most of the day, assuring me 
from time to time that all was 
well and that the pump, in 
particular, was working splen- 
didly. Towards evening be 
attempted to re-fill the system 
with water and set it going. 
His expression grew steadily 
less jovial and eventually he 
told me that two of the 
radiators were now not work- 
ing — including, perhaps fortu- 
nately, the one which had not 
worked before. This was be- 
cause the pump was “duff” 
and would need to be replaced. 

We both smiled again and 
exchanged routine grumbles 
about the gas board for a few 
minutes. Finally he said he 
would return on the morrow to 
replace the pump. 

Somewhat to my amazement 

he did so. But sadly, the 
radiator which had not worked 


before still would not function. 
He gazed dispiritedly at the 
copper pipes leading to it and 
opined that they most be 
blocked. He would return in a 
few days and flush the system 
out. 

Some weeks passed. I rang 
Staines. They said they would 
give me the private firm’s 
number. I said they could 
make their own phone calls. 
They agreed, smilingly, that 
this was reasonable. I would 
bear very soon. 

Some weeks passed. I rang 
Mr Hushaby, who was deso- 
late. He could offer no expla- 
nation' for the delay. He and 
Mr Rockfist would visit me at 
once. Coaid I just explain what 
the problem was? 

Messrs Hnshaby and 
Rockfist appeared a few days 
later. They looked at the 
system and explained that the 
piping must be blocked. They 
would put their own fitters 
onto the job at once, in order to 
expedite matters. 

Eight days passed. I rang 
Mr Hushaby, who quite soon 
remembered who I was. He 
co old offer no explanation for 
the delay. Mr Rockfist had, he 
was sure, been intending to 
ring the private firm immedi- 
ately after they had visited me. 

I would hear from somebody 
soon. 

Six days passed. I rang Mr 
Rockfist. He was sorry that I 
bad been “messed about” He 
would get onto somebody at 
once. 

Three days passed. Still, I 
was do worse off than I was in 
September. I have two gleam- 
ing new radiators, one of which 
leaks. My first-floor landing 
has remained unhealed during 
the coldest February since 
1947 and the gas board has 
bad £239.00 of mine 
since last November. 

Then, last week, high- 
speed gas struck. 
Laugh? I almost

Times Newspapers Ltd need 
never worry that I might harm 
its corporate image. That is 
because I am the woman least 
likely to get involved in a 
Corporate Romance which, 
according to a new study* can 
send a firm’s shares diving 
through the floorboards as 
surely as finding the sales 
director’s fingers in the tilL 
According to Leslie 
Westoffi the author of Corpo- 
rate Romance, emotional en- 
tanglements at executive level 
have “threatened both office 
morale and the orderly transi- 
tion of executive power". 

Out of 1 12 executives ques- 
tioned in a 1 982 survey, 82 per 
cent said they had found 
romance at work and several 
of these said that it had 
affected their company 
adversely. 

I am aware that what ought 
to engage my interest in this 
finding is how a little loving 
on the premises can send a 
corporation crashing. But it 
doesn’t. What I want to know 
is how executives ever find the 
time 10 say anything more 
tender to each other than “Let 
me have that file on Breeze, 
Bumf and Belfry as soon as 
you can”. 

I work in a company that is 
teeming with men of all 
shapes and shoe-sizes and so 
far not one of them has cast a 
glance in my direction that 
could possibly be described as 
meaningful. They are not to 
blame for this since during 
office hours I am definitely 
not at my seductive best. 

There is something in the 
air in the London Under- 
ground system that ensures 
that, although 1 enter it during 
every morning rush hour with 
a freshly-made-up face and 
newly washed hair, I emerge at 
the other end with every lick 
of mascara blown off my 
lashes and a lank and dingy 
fringe. 

1 really took much prettier 
perched on a bar stool at 8 pm 
than hunched over an editori- 
al keyboard first thing in the 
morning but none of the male 
executives with whom 1 share 
the daylight hours can be 
expected to know that. 

My predicament is not 
unique. A colleague of mine 
met one of her editors at a 
party and had to introduce 
herself to him as he didn’t 
recognize her dazzling night- 
time self as the grimy little 
number he saw nearly every 
day at the office. 

I do know one female 
executive who looks as lovely 
against a business background 
as she does in a ballroom. But 
corporate romance has foiled 
to come her way either, since 
she is always at the hairdresser 
having a comb-out when she 
should be attending high-level 
conferences.

Even if I were to have some 
choice in the matter, 1 might 
hesitate before embarking on 
an affair of the heart at my 
place of work. For I have 
noticed that men are not at 
their best between Monday 
and Friday. For one thing, 
they always seem to be con- 
centrating on the task in hand 
and would not be districted 
even if Madonna were to slink 
in and place her bare midriff 
between them and their 
calculator. 

During the brief period 
when high-ranking men leave 
their desks, they eat a lot This 
does not present a pretty sight 
to a woman with a permanent 
weight problem. 

What ! can do without as 1 
queue up at the canteen till 
.with my cottage cheese salad 
and mineral water is to watch 
the man in front of me riffie 
through his pockets for 
enough change to pay for his 
steak and kidney pie, mashed 
potato and coffee with cream. 
The relish that my male 
colleagues never bring to de- 
veloping any kind of interest- 
ing little sideline with me is 
brought to bear on devouring 
steaming platefuls of treacle 
sponge. 1 have seen otherwise 
respectable beads of depart- 
ment fliog their tie over their 
left shoulder so as not to have 
it dangle in the custard. This is 
not die stuff of which a 
thousand-megawatt corporate 
romance is made. Especially 
since the blighters don’t ever 
seem to put on any weighL 

My own experience ex- 
cepted, the Corporate Ro- 
mance is wreaking havoc 
wherever it strikes, to the 
extent that Leslie Westoff 
insists that companies must 
hire professional counsellors 
to deal with the problem. 

Perhaps these advisers 
could also be on tap to help 
those of us who have never 
found love in the office deal 
with that left-in-the-filing-cab- 
inet feeling that occasionally 
comes over us.

SPORTING DIARY 

Simon Barnes 


World v 
World 1 1 

There would be no problem these 
days in picking a world team to 
play Man at cricket You would 
just pick the West Indies and turn 
them loose. The real challenge is 
to pick a world team that could 
beat the West Indies. This prob- 
lem is now being wrestled with by 
David Gower and associates, and 
they are doing it for real The West 
; Indies will play the Rest of the 

■ World in a one-day match at 
! Edgbaston on May 20, with the 

■ proceeds going to Band Aid to 
make the whole thing quadruply 

; worthwhile. 

Selection problems have been 
caused by the only county match 
that day: Essex v Nonhams, which 
rules out Graham Gooch, Allan 

• lamb and Allan Border. But there 
[is plenty of talent available. 

[ Gower will captain the side. He 

• will definitely have Ian Botham, 
Imran Khan, Greg Matthews, the 
Terpischorean Australian, and 

, Terry Alderman, the crowd con- 
; irol ex pen. 

There have been problems in 
contacting the Indians, but 
■Gower's men are optimistic about 
borrowing Sunil Gavaskar, Ravi 
Shaftri and Kapil Dev from the 
side that will be touring England at 
the time. Answers are expected 
today from New Zealanders Mar- 
. tin Crowe and John Wright. The 
main problem is the wicket 
keeper. Wayne Phillips has, per- 
; haps wisely, given up keeping 
wicket for Australia and said he 
1 would like to play for the Rest of 
the World so long as he didn't 
: keep wicket. So we could have 
; Paul Downton instead, although a 
! controversial choice of young 
; Steven Rhodes is not out of the 

■ question. 

The West Indians will be their 
usual mighty self with the added 
: bonus that the great Give Lloyd 
- might step out of retirement for 
the day. The Rest of the World 
face a task that would make a team 
from Mars quail.

Pastures green 

The death Iasi week of Stroller, 
one of the games! horses in 
history, provoked a flood of 
memories and the odd tear across 
the country. A pony who out- 
jumped a generation of towering 
horses, he was ridden throughout 
his career by Marion Coakes, now 
Marion Mould, and for the past 1 5 
years — he lived to the age of 36 — 
had been living in well deserved 
retirement on the Mould family 
form in Hampshire. Stroller’s 
death brings back memories of the

Stroke play 

That annual exercise in facetious-

contained its usual fanciful claims 
about the interests and ambitions 
of the crews. From Oxford we 
have Richard Owen (eating pan-

Christopher Dark (hedonistic 
utilitarianism and applied sleep

(“his ambition is to be sober for an 
evening”). Cambridge replied 
with John Pritchard's ambition to 
overcome acute introversion and 
misogynistic tendencies, James 
Pew (surfing and chicks) and the 
ambitions of their diminutive cox, 
Carole Burton “to grow tall 
enough to see into her own pigeon

England's cricketers are finding it 
as natural to pray on the cricket 
pitch as anywhere else these days. 

Stamping out 

The Soviet bloc boycott of the 
1984 Olympics left the postal 
services of Che communist coun- 
tries with huge stocks of Olympic 
commemorative stamps which 
were apparently destined for the 
incinerator. But the event, which 
became a United States Festival of 
Victory, is at last being celebrated 
behind the Iron Curtain. Poland — 
perhaps because it cannot afford 
to print others - has started 
putting its own issue into the post 
offices. What will happen to the 
offending envelope, I wonder, if a 
Pole wants to write to a comrade 
in Moscow?

before sbe mounted that she 
learned she had no right to the

is run under different rules to a 
normal flat race. Hurriedly, she 
weighed out again, this time at the 
correct weight, and then rode Well 
Wisher, which finished like a 
rocket in fourth place. Because her 
horse was placed, she was required 
to weigh in, and had she been 
(bund to be claiming 71b in error 
she would have suffered the 
ignominy of automatic dis- 
qualification. It would have been 
even more embarrassing had the

T t was a glance by a mildly 
curious archivist in Wash- 
's ington at the widely available 
li Allied list of wanted Nazi 
war criminals ten days ago 
which overnight transformed the 
World Jewish Congress’s 
opportunistic campaign against 
Dr Kurt Waldheim into a set of 
serious allegations that 
now embraces senior government 
officials in Washington, Belgrade 
and Athens. Unmistakably, the 
former UN secretary general had, 
rightly or wrongly, been listed in 
1948 as wanted for murders 
committed during the Second 
World War. 

News of the archivist's discov- 
ery prompted Yugoslav officials to 
unearth a thick, long forgotten file 
which makes allegations of “mur- 
der and slaughter”. Hitherto, the 
67-year-old Austrian had suffered 
only malicious lampooning as a 
would-be emperor, “looking and 
behaving like a head waiter — the 
only man who could bend over 
backwards and forwards at the 
same lime”. 

For three weeks Waldheim had 
successfully protected his meticu- 
lously cultivated image as a ser- 
vant of peace against charges of 
taking part in the Nazi deporta- 
tion of 42,830 Greek Jews from 
Salonika to the Auschwitz exter- 
mination camp. Paralysed by his 
stubborn protestations of inno- 
cence that as a former Wehnnacht 
lieutenant be was “not even 
aware" of the event, the World 
Jewish Congress in New York 
despaired. Then, abruptly, it was 
given an opportunity loswiich 
tactics. 

Last week. Professor Robert 
Herzstein. an historian appointed 
by the WJC, discovered in the 
Washington archives the volu- 
minous divisional history of the 
Wehimacht's 714th In fen try Di- 
vision. An entry written in late 
1942 describes “Operation 
Kozara”, an anti-partisan sweep 
that summer across the mountain- 
ous Yugoslav countryside as a 
“liquidation operation" against 
“Untermenschen" (sub-humans), 
many of whom agonizingly im- 
paled themselves on barbed wire 
rather than be captured alive. 
Waldheim's name was on the' 
divisional flow chart of respon- 
sibilities for that operation as an 
intelligence lieutenant in “03”, a 
branch of the overall intelligence 
division. 1 c/AO. “03” was as- 
signed “special' tasks”. On the 
surface it seems that Waldheim, 
although only a lieutenant, was 
chief of an interrogation branch. 

The crux of the new allegations 
•is that between July 1942 and 
Christmas 1944 Waldheim was a 
“senior” Wehrmacht intelligence 
officer in Army Group E, a 
300,000-strong force under Gen- 
eral Alexander Lohr whose head- 
quarters in Salonika directed 
routine searcb-and-destroy opera- 
tions. Waldheim allegedly played 
apart in the merciless massacre of 
thousands of Yugoslav partisans 
and their families. Twice daily he 
is suppposed to have compiled 
“activity reports" for the chiefs of 
the general staff, based on raw 
intelligence, data from interroga- 


Waldheim: the 
hunt starts 

for witnesses 


lions of captured partisans. More 
incrirainatingly, during opera- 
tions, Waldheim was apparently 
present at the inquisitions. In 
1947, General Lohr was executed 
by the Yugoslav government for 
crimes committed during those 
operations. 

Until four weeks ago Waldheim 
had deliberately concealed his 
wartime activities. In his auto- 
biography, published last year, he 
told how, -after bang wounded in 
Russia in December 1941, he was 
demobilized and completed his 
legal studies. Implicitly, he sug- 
gested non-involvement in the 
Nazi horrors. Asked on American 
television recently to explain the 
omission, he insisted that a full 
account of his life would have 
been “too boring”. The true 
reason may well have been dif- 
ferent. 

The lame divisional history 
records that three officers, as 
acknowledgement for their special 
services during “Operation 
Kozara”, were singled out for 
praise by Ante Pavalic, the Cro- 
atian genocidal leader. The three, 
awarded the Zvonimir medal in 
silver and with oak leaves, were 
cited as earning recognition “un- 
der enemy fire”. Waldheim was 
one of those rewarded. The 
contemporary record dearly re- 
futes his current explanation that 
thousands of medals were handed 
out like valueless confetti by the 
tinpot dictator 


P hotographic evidence 
places Waldheim on May 
22 1943 on the Albanian 
border alongside General 
Artur Phelps, comman- 
der of the 7th SS Volunteer 
Division during “Operation 
Schwarz", another big and in- 
evitably ruthless anti-partisan 
hunt. Waldheim has repeatedly 
insisted that be was only an 
interpreter. The documents record 
him as an interrogator and an 
intelligence officer, a responsibil- 
ity which, despite his d en i al s, he 
apparently fulfilled until the end 
of 1944. The lengthening list of 
incriminating contradictions is, 
his detractors claim, exposing a 
systematic cover-up. 

The question now is whether 
the new evidence of Waldheim’s 
anti-partisan activities under- 
mines his denial of any participa- 
tion or even knowledge of the 
Jewish deportations. At issue are 
his whereabouts during the ten 
weeks immediately prior to “Op- 
eration Schwarz”. In February 
1943, using elaborate deception, 
hand-picked SS emissaries des- 
patched by Adolf Eichmann had 
convinced Jewish leaders in Sa- 
lonika about the advantages of 


“resettling” the ir flock in Poland. 
In March 1943 German army 
trains, provided by General Loin’s 
headquarters, began to transport 
about 2,000 Jews every day to 
their deaths. By May, the ghettos 
around Salonika had been ef- 
ficiently emptied. 

One of the SS officers respon- 
sible, Alois Brunner, today lives as 
a fhgitive in Syria but is unavail- 
able to explain whether, during the 
operation, an alert intelligence 
officer at Lohr's headquarters 
would have heard about the 
controlled movement in wartime 
of thousands of local people. 

Four weeks ago, when reminded 
about the deportations, Wald- 
heim's reaction was particularly 
puzzling: “I regret these things 
most deeply”, be said into a tape 
recorder, “but I have to repeat that 
it is really the first time that 1 hear 
that such things happened. I never 
heard or learned anything of this 
while 1 was there ” His sponta- 
neous protestation of innocence 
about that episode in the Holo- 
caust was made before he realized 
what secrets the archives in Bel- 
grade and Washington contained. 

Since then he has questioned 
the motives of those who have 
belatedly produced this “felse 
record” claiming that every na- 
tional security agency must have 
investigated and cleared him be- 
fore tbeir governments ratified his 
UN appoin tment . The answer is 
that the allegations against him are 
undoubtedly motivated; but that 
it is unlikely that any agency in the 
West, including Israel carried out 
more than a cursory check. 

The motivation for the current 
campaign is unmistaJoeable. Eli 
Rosenbaum, the youthful general 
counsel of the World Jewish 
Congress, unashamedly seized the 
evidence against Waldheim in the 
hope of preventing his election as 
Austrian president in May. 
Rosenbaum recently arrived at the 
WJC from the US Department of 
Justice, flush with the. success of 
forcing the highly decorated Ger- 
man rocket scientist, Arthur Ru- 
dolph, to renounce his American 
citizenship and return to Germany 
amid allegations of war crimes. 
Rosenbaum has become an estab- 
lished Nazi hunter, inheriting the 
mantle from the aging Simon 
Wiesenthal who has until now 
endorsed the innocence of Wald- 
heim. a fellow countryman. 

Wiesenthal’s discomforture that 
Dr Josef Mengele was not discov- 
ered alive and well in Paraguay, 
but dead and buried in Brazil, 
reconfirmed that the victims of 
Nazism have been astonishingly 
unable and even unwilling to 
pursue their persecutors for more 
than a brief period after 1943. The 


Yugoslav case against Waldheim 
was similarly marooned. Hence 
the long delay before the case was 
produced. 

After Germany’s defeat, the 
British and American military 
governors willingly extradited to 
Yugoslavia those named by the 
Belgrade government as war crim- 
inals. By mid- 1 946 the Allies had 
received many reports that those 
extradited were being executed 
without fair triaL As East-West 
tension grew, farther Yugoslav 
requests were denied, although 
known war criminals were living 
in the western zones of Germany. 

Frustrated, the Belgrade govern- 
ment charged innumerable Ger- 
man officers who had served in 
Yugoslavia with murder and reg- 
istered their accusations with the 
Allied war crimes agency. Crow- 
cass. In their absence, most of 
those listed were summarily tried 
and condemned to death. In the 
turbulence of postwar Europe, and 
especially the transition of Yugo- 
slavia from occupation to a Stalin- 
ist and then Titoist nation, the 
pursuit of Nazi war criminals soon 
became haphazard. Until now, 
Waldheim's records were blessed 
with the fete common to all: 
forgotten and abandoned in a 
government warehouse. 

T hroughout Waldheim's 
tenure at the United 
Nations, requests were 
made by Jewish groups 
to American security 
and intelligence agencies to in- 
vestigate his wartime activities. 
Consistently, the checks proved 
negative. The latest was Rosen- 
baum's own urgem request to the . 
US army five weeks ago. While 
Waldheim insists that the vacuum 
proves his innocence, others pos- 
tulate a myriad of posable 
conspiracies. The probable truth is 
that because Waldheim does not 
feature in the surviving SS and 
Nazi Party records, and because 
he had successfully concealed his 
post-1941 activities, there was 
nowhere for an uninitiated in- 
vestigator to begin the search. 

In the run-up to the Austrian 
election, Waldheim's fete depends 
upon the determination and suc- 
cess of Rosenbaum and the 
American. Yugoslav and Greek 
governments to find convincing 
eyewitnesses to those awkward 
missing years. Incriminating tes- 
timony might possibly sway an 
electorate which has drown a 
marked appetite for forgetting 
their nation's wartime crimes. 

Others will ponder bow dif- 
ferent the course of history might 
have been had it been known that 
the UN chief when dealing with 
international terrorism and war- 
fore in Vietnam and the Middle 
East, had himself served as an 
interrogation officer in one of the 
'more ruthless campaigns of the 
Second World War. 

If Austrian voters turn a blind 
eye to the allegations and elect 
him, their snub to world opinion 
could backfire. Waldheim’s critics 
are determined to impose a bar on 
his future entry into the United 
States — an ig nominious punish- 
ment for a world leader.

Cartoons by Barry farms* 


So it’s ail over. The wicked witch 
across the water, having stamped 
her foot and made her shrill 
demand, the GLC and all its 
works disappear in a puff of smoke 
at midnight tonight. We are told- 
that that puff of smoke will be the 
most outrageously expensive, the 
most cheekily subversive, and 
quite the noisiest that London has 
ever known — accompanied. I 
hope by the emptying of County 
Hall's famous cellar. None the less 
that will indeed be the end. 

Tomorrow the London Residu- 
ary Body takes over. Its members 
seem to be a thoroughly dreary 
lot — real killjoys. The first thing 
they have done is to close tbe 
members' bar and restaurant to 
the surviving members of the 
ILEA who are still perforce, using 
County Hall. They have slopped 
all use of the building in the 
evenings and at weekends. They 
are trying to close the members' 
car park and ceremonial entrance 
as well, though we are hoping the 
fire brigade will insist that it stays 
ojren. They also appear to have 
initiated a thorough survey of 
every nook and cranny of the 
budding, no doubt to assist in the 
forthcoming auction. One of my 
colleagues was startled to en- 
counter on bis entrance to the 
men's lavatory the other day a 
photographer with tripod and 
hooded camera aimed at the 
porcelain. 

Tbe last two weeks have been 
full of tired and emotional fare- 
wells — and speeches. God, how 
many speeches! I have had to 
make a few myself. It has been 
amazing how thoroughly con- 
ventional even the very bastion of 
icouoclasm became as it ap- 
proached its end. In voices 
shaking with sincere emotion we 


have celebrated a comradeship, 
constructive co-operation and the 
selfless dedication we have all 
practised these last five years. We 
have cut cakes and presented one 
another with bouquets. We have 
minted a whole treasury of new 
badges and given them to our- 
selves. My favourite, which bears 
an uncommon likeness to my old 
school prefect's badge, is from the 
Women’s Committee. “Work for 
Women in London” it says. 
There's a testimonial. 

Our final meeting, in the domed 
and columned council chamber 
which Herbert Morrison judged 
appropriate for London's elected 
assembly, was a magnificent af- 
fair. We had a procession of robed 
mayors preceded bjr their maces 
(and no one was unkind enough to 
point out that the Mayor of 
Lambeth, at its head, was in foci 
the ex-mayor, having resigned the 
day before in the latest exciting 
chapter of events in that most 
political of all boroughs). We had 
a gallery of distinguished visitors, 
with County HalTs skilled cer- 
emonial staff tactfully placing 
Tony Benn and Neil Kinnock at 
some distance from each other. 
We had flowers and television 
lights and formal speeches which 
gave evidence of much scanning 
of the sections on “Death" and 
“Government” in the Oxford 
Book of Aphorisms. 

We even had some politics. The 
left tried to move the adjournment 
of the council in order to draw 
attention to... but we never 
found out what some said it was 
the Lambeth surcharges, others 
the plight of Irish women t pris- 
orrers. There was a constitutional 
skirmish, and not enough mem- 
bers rose in their places to support 
the speaker, who therefore had to 


sit down. At which the rotund and 
irrepressible Charlie Rossi my 
neighbour from St P&ncras South 
(born in Naples, brought up in tbe 
Gorbals) leapt to his feet shouting, 
“Where are all the lefties now?” 
and stormed out of the chamber 
(though be came back through 
another door some moments 
later). We all laughed and cheered 
and jeered and booed, and felt 
more our normal selves again 
while tbe distinguished visitors 
smiled pained smiles and thought 
their own thoughts (starting, no 
doubt, with “No wonder . . .’i 

What will the verdict of history 
be? On the left a whole mythology 
is developing that the GLC has 
been the living proof of the 
popularity and vitality of the new 
socialism. It is presented as the 
way forward between the tired old 
authoritarian male-dominated, 
dreariness of the right and tbe 
hard-feced and secretive demo- 
cratic centralism of Militant and 
the ultra-Left. It is young, exciting, 
irreverent, open; it has “spoken 
for the first time" to women, gays, 
blacks, etc, etc, etc. If you read the 
left-wing press you will have 
become familiar with the whole, 
repetitive litany by now. 

It is a view of life which 
emphasizes style, language and 
image for more than specific 
actions. I have sat in innum erable 
committees over the last few years 
intensively engaged in a collective 
act of setfdeception. They per- 
suade themselves that having 
commissioned a huge report on, 
say, women's housing needs or a 
financial strategy for London, and 
having pretended to have read it, 
they have actually achieved some- 
thing. In this atmosphere it be- 
comes far more important to 
introduce non-sexist language into 


committee reports than to see that 
any individual woman has "her 
roof repaired. And perhaps, in the 
long view of tbe political theorists 
of tbe left it is. 

But what those who see the last 
five years at County Hall as a huge 
socialist success and blueprint for 
tbe future foil to grasp is that the 
GLC, by the end, in fact did very 
tittle except give away money and 
promote itself- a. view of the 
function of government curiously 
dose to that of Nigel Lawson. It 
did not have to answer for the 
organization of any imporotanl 
service, except transport, and that 
was taken away before abolition. 
It did not — it could not - inter- 
vene in any meaningful way in the 
economy of London. It did not 
bear responsibility for any final 
planning decisions. It was not 
called upon to implement any of 
its grand designs. It was, in this 
sense, toothless. And yet in this 
age of mass communication it 
proved that even paper tigers have 
daws and teeth, 

Tbe tragedy of what has hap-, 
pened is that from 1980 onwards it 
was dear that London govern- 
ment needed reform. There are 
strategic functions, many of the 
unglamorous ones now being frag- 
mented in the post-abolition 
chaos, but also p lanning and 
transport which have never been 
under an integrated and unified 
control Mrs Thatcher, by setting 
her face against the road of 
consensus ana reform, and choos- 
ing the bludgeon instead, has 
created heroes and martyrs, myth . 
and legend, that will haunt both 
her and the future of London 
government for years to come.

ity in Ms opening statement when 
be claimed to be the reincarnation 
of Jesus Christ. 

Subsequently, according to tire 
lawyer defending Sergei Antonov, 
Ae only Bulgarian actually in 
custody, AB Agca gave 102 dif- 
ferent versions of the “Bttteaiian 
connection" and withdrew 59. 

The group of investigators who 
conducted the third inquiry into 
the background to the assassina- 
tion attempt said they found many 
doors dosed to them in many 
countries. They even fed that the 
Vatican knows more than it is 
giving away. 

« » 

Following through a 
conspiracy theory 

- The beginning of the case was 
simple enough. Mehmet AH Agca 
fired at the Pope in the coarse of a 
general audience in St Peter’s 
Square and very oearty killed him. 
Therewas no doobt aboto his gmlt 
Within two months he was tried 
and sentenced to life imprison- 
ment, with a year of absolute 
solitary confinement. 

So far so good; but in sentencing 

Agca the corat referred to a 
conspiracy. The Vatican toe pub- 
licly questioned whether more 
than one person might not have 
.been involved. So a second inquiry 
was opened 'to decide whether 
[there was a conspiracy and, if 
there was, who the conspirators 
might be. 

Hus .inquiry was entrusted to 
Dario Martella, one of the Rome 
judiciary’s most experienced in- 
vestigating judges. The result of 
his work was the indictment of 
eight people, five Turks and three 
Bulgarians. 

, In tbe coarse of the trial one of 
the Turks, Bekir Cefenk/died in 
Turkey (some say he was mur- 
dered on orders from Bulgaria). Of 
the three Bulgarians, two were 
former members of the Bulgarian 
embassy in Rome who had gone 
hack to Bulgaria. The third was 
Sergei Antonov, a Bulgarian air- 
line official who was still at his 
post hi Rome when he was arrested 
jin November 1982. 

The Turkish defendants be- 
longed to, or were connected with, 
the Grey Wolves movement, de- 
scribed by Italian investigators as 
a right-wing terrorist organization 
with bases throughout Europe 
which lives from drug trafficking. 
AH Agca churned membership of 
tire movement from the beginning 
and, in fact, some of his more 
amvindng statements in toe court- 
room came when be talked about 
his own circle of Grey Wolves. The 
third inquiry also shows the Grey 
Wolves to be a formidable 
organization. 

AH Agca himself came back into 
the courtroom as a witness after an 
absence of three months to add to 
the public prosecutor's report a 
brief description of his own mo- 
tives which, be pointed out, the 
prosecutor had failed to mention. 

He said: “I carried out the 
attempt against the Five because I 
was against him as the symbol of 
the western world and of 
Christianity, which has oppressed 
all the peoples of the world." That 
is probably as explicit an account 
we shall ever have of his real 
motive. . - • 

‘Name Bulgaria and 
yon will go free’ 

The only person to whom he 
might have said more is the Pope 
himself, who took tbe questio nable 
step of meeting his “toother" in 
prisma. What transpired has never 
been made public. We do know, 
however, that the Pope has ex- 
pressed to a group of Bulgarians 
his hope that their country would 
not be seen to have been involved 
in shooting him. 

So where did the Bulgarian 
Connection' crane into the affair? 
According to Antonov's counsel 
Ali Agca had been visited in prison 
by members of the Italian secret 
services and told to implicate the 
Bulgarians in return for an even- 
tual pardon. Dario Maitella had 
made what many see as a mtoah 
by giving die secret services 
permission to see him. 

Investigators who believed in 
the connection said they were 
dealing with other cases of es- 
pionage involving Bulgarians and 
these inquiries helped make AD 
Agca's testimony seem more reli- 
able. And it should be added that 
there was an extraordinary desire 
among many people to believe in 
the connection, whatever the na- 
ture of the evidence. 

It might, of corase, still be true; 
although the one Bulgarian raider 
arrest looked the least likely of all 
the defendants to he involved in 
any large-scale conspiracy.

of the Prime Minister’s demise 
have been greatly exaggerated. 
The fortunes of major innova- 
tions like privatization will be 
determined by more substan- 
tial considerations than the 
result of one by-election. 

“ In properly judging the 
Government’s prospects how- 
ever, an important distinction 
can be made between the 
Prime Minister and her party. 
To judge from her brisk and 
effective dismissal last week of 
the charges that she had en- 
gaged in improper share deal- 
ing, and from her thoughtful 
interview in this newspaper, 
Mrs Thatcher has run short of 
neither confidence nor ideas. 
She remains the radical, even 
populist, outsider who has 
broadened the social base of 
her party with policies like 
selling council houses, main- 
tained' the identification of 
Conservatism with the na- 
tional interest by defending 
Britain's interests abroad more 
vigorously than her recent 
predecessor, and subjected na- 
tional institutions from trade 
unions to nationalized in- 
dustries to major reforming 
smgery. 

Anthony Hartley points out 
in the current edition of En- 
counter that, in two of these 
three achievements, she is 
faithful to the Conservative 
tradition established by an- 
other populist outsider, Benja- 
min Disraeli. Where she 
differs from Disraeli is in her 
unsentimental willingness to 
reform established, institu- 
tions. But this difference 
surely lies more in the con- 
dition of Britain than in any 
sharp divergence of philosphy. 
Disraeli held office before the 
relative economic decline of 
Britain in comparison to the 
United States and Germany 
had seriously set in. Mrs 
Thatcher arrived just ahead of 
a crisis of economic adjust- 
ment which 30 years of infla- 
tion had fostered. . 

No political leader could 
have tacked that oblique leg- 
acy without arousing hostile 


majority. Its opponents are passions amongst her own 
fractions — in Labour^ case supporters.' Fat institutions do" 


MR TRACEY AND THE TOBACCO MEN 


- 


Norman Fowler, Secretary bf- 
State- for Social Services, de- 
serves three out of ten for last 
week’s voluntary agreement 
whh the tobacco industry on 
advertising. It is now up to Mr 
Dick Tracey, the Minister for 
Sport, to do better. Negotia- 
tions oyer his agreement with 
the industry over sports 
sponsorship have still to be 
completed. Sports sponsorship 
is one of the many ways the 
tobacco industry effectively 
circumvents the agreements it 
solemnly makes with govern- 
ment over advertising, and 
one of the ways it does so most 
blatantly. 

The advertising agreement 
prohibits the linking of smok- 
ing to healthy outdoor scenes, 
sporting success, or heroes of 
the" young. Yet last year the 
number of hours of tobacco 
sponsored sport that were 
televised rose from 332 in 
1984 to 363 with brands names 
. such as Embassy, Benson amd 
Hedges, John Player Special, 
Rothmans, Silk Cut and Marl- 
boro linked on the screen to 
just those images through 
snooker, tennis, rugby, motor 
racing and cricket. 

It is twenty years since 
television advertising of ciga- 
rettes was banned, yet year in 
and year out cigarette brand 
names receive hours of tele- 
vision exposure. It is small 
wonder that a government 
sponsored survey amongst 
children showed that three 
quartets of them believed they 
had seen cigarettes advertised . 
on television. 

Mr Tracey’s ideal course 
would be to insist, over a 
period of say three years, that 
tobacco sponsorship of sport 
was phased out. But if he will 
not do that there are. signifi- 
cant steps he could take to 
ensure that the £10 million a 


Victims of crime 

From the Chairman of the Crim- 
inal Injuries Compensation Board 
Sir, When writing of problems 
concerning compensation orders 
for victims of crimes of violence 
John Spencer (feature, March 5) 
did not mention that some mag- 
istrates seem .reluctant to make 
such orders. 

• „ No one expects an order to be 
made if the offender has not-the 
means to pay. However; I read 
case after tarn in which there is no 
suggestion that the victim was 
blameworthy, the nature of the 


year the industry puts into 
sports sponsorship produces a 
lesser return in terms of 
maintaining a favourable im- 
age for a habit that kills about 
one in four of those who- 
smoke 20 a day. 

He should, at least, ensure 
that advertisements for to- 
bacco sponsored events com- 
ply with the ordinary 
advertising agreement He 
also needs to go much further.' 

The existing agreement rules 
out “freeze-frame” shots in 
televised tobacco-sponsored 
events. Yet tennis players 
serving and snooker players 
cueing are shown night after 
night on television against 
either brand-name advertise- 
ments or hoardings bearing the 
name of the event 

The wording of existing 
rules needs to - be tightened. 
For example in the Benson 
and Hedges Tennis the brand 
name was placed on the score- 
board and all over the 
umpire's chair so as to be 
regularly in shot The existing 
rules prohibit brand names on 
items such as cricket score- 
boards and officials and their 
equipment But Gallaher ar- 
gued that a tennis scoreboard 
was not a cricket scoreboard 
and tennis umpires, unlike 
cricket umpires, did not form 
part of the action. 

The placing and numbers of 
permitted advertisements and 
event names thus needs to be 
further restricted. If a product 
which destroys health is to 
continue to be allowed to 
promote healthy and glam- 
orous activities, event names 
and advertisements should 
cease to be placed in positions 
where the cameras regularly 
cover them. 

To ensure compliance a 
genuinely independent 
committee (unlike that created 


injury is known at the date of trial 
and the offender has been fined a 
substantial sum, but no 
compensation order has been 
made. 

I suspect that some magistrates 
may not realise that the Criminal 
Injuries Compensation Board can- 
not pay any compensation unless 
the victim's injuries would attract 
an award, of £400 or more. Such 
victims remain uncompensated if 
no compensation order is made by 
the court. - 

It is now-'over three years .since 
magistrates were given increased 


by Mr Fowler to oversee the 
advertising agreement which 
will consist half of civil ser- 
vants and half of industry 
representatives) should be set 
up. It should be able to 
take effectivelyto task not just 
the industry when it bends or 
breaks the rules, but also the 
broadcasters, most notably the 
BBC which televises the lion’s 
share of tobacco company 
sport and seems notably reluc- 
tant to ensure that the sponsor- 
ship code is honoured. It 
should publish reports of each 
breach at the time and an 
annual report 
Such firm action is needed 
because sport is being used to 
circumvent other advertising 
restrictions and because Mr 
Fowler’s agreement with the 
industry foils to tackle yet 
more areas where the advertis- 
ing agreement is circum- 
vented. Nothing has been 
done, for example, to stop the 
industry diversifying into 
brand-name leisure wear, 
adventure and skiing holidays 
which Hnk cigarettes to images 
of the good life that the 
advertising code prohibits in 
advertisements, 

The new health warnings are 
welcome as is the limited 
impact the ban on cinema 
advertising will have. But to 
stipulate, as Mr Fowler’s 
agreement does, that give- 
aways for children at tobacco ; 
sponsored events such as the 
Marlboro roadshow and Peter 
Stuyvesant airshow should no 
longer carry brand names or j 
logos is to admit that compa- ; 
nies have been aiming the ; 
message at young people, ! 
whatever the public denials. 
The industry will continue to 
do so through sport unless Mr 
Tracey does better than Mr 
Fowler. 


powers to make compensation 
orders; it is rather depressing that 
some magistrates seem not to be 
using these powers. It is also very 
puzzling, because I cannot see that 
it makes any difference to the 
magistrates if . a compensation 
order is made instead of or in 
addition to, a fine.

Facts on Irish extradition law 


not enjoy being prodded with a 
sharp stick. But the Prime 
Minister had the necessary 
resolution. 

With the job only half done, 
however, the question is raised 
by recent events if the Conser- 
vative Party has the necessary 
stomach to carry through the 
other half Since Westland 
sapped the Conservative 
nerve, the Government has 
abandoned a number of forth- 
right positions it had pre- 
viously expended considerable 
political capital to defend. 

Having declared that the 
exclusion of trade unions from 
GCHQ at Cheltenham was 
essential to national security, 
and having won the point 
through several exhausting 
court battles. Sir Geoffrey 
Howe quietly abandoned it 
without explanation a fort- 
night ago. 

In response to the move of 
witless, self-destructive jingo- 
ism on the Tory backbenchers 
aided by cynical jingoism from 
the Labour ftontbench, the 
Cabinet withdrew from deals 
with both Ford and General 
Motors which, between them 
would have assured a future 
(otherwise very doubtful) for ' 
the British car industry and 
lifted a heavy burden of finan- 
cial subsidy from the tax 
payer. The Transport Sec- 
retary has postponed the 
privatization of British Air- 
ways. And, this weekend, the 
Home Secretary is wondering 
whether or not to abandon an 
overdue reform of Sunday 
trading laws in deference to a 
bizarre alliance of trade unions 
and Sabbatarian fundamental- 
ists. 

What this catalogue prom- 
ises for the future is a govern- 
ment of soothing inactivity. 
This may present a pleasing 
aesthetic appearance to Mr 
John Bififen or the agreeable 
prospect of a quiet life to the 
chief whip. But it is not in the 
national interest It is not to 
the Prime Minister’s own 
taste. And it is not necessary to 
the success of the Conser- 
vative' Party rather. 


From Mr Gerard Hogan 
Sir, It might be better if those who 
stepped in to criticise the actions 
of the Irish courts in the wake of 
the Glenholmes affair brushed up 
on their knowledge of Irish crim- 
inal procedure — a system of 
criminal procedure which in many 
ways differs fundamentally from 
that prevailing m the United 
Kingdom. 

It may, of course, be true to say 
(as Mr Ivor Stan brook has pointed 
out) that a British Court would 
have been prepared to grant a 
further adjournment in the 
circumstances of Ms Glenholmes* 
case, but then such a court is not 
operating within the confines of a 
written constitution containing 
entrenched civil liberties guar- 
antees. 

The plain fact of the matter is 
that once the extradition warrants 
were shown to be defective. Ms 
Glenholmes was no longer in legal 
custody and the District Court was 
obliged by the terms of Article 40 
of the Irish Constitution to order 
her immediate release. And, as the 
Irish Supreme Court has pointed 
out on many occasions, such a 
release must be “unqualified and 
unconditional”. 

In other words, the Irish courts 
have no power to order the re- 
arrest of a person whose release 
has just been ordered, nor do they 
possess a jurisdiction to order a 
remand in custody of a person on 
the basis of documents (such as an 
extradition wanant) which are not 
before the court. 

Two Amber points deserve to 
be made. First, it is difficult to 
understand Mr Hurd's suggestion 
that the defects in the warrant 
caused “unforeseen difficulties”. 
The attitude of the Irish Supreme 
Courts was made quite dear by Mr 
Justice McCarthy in McMahon v. 
Leahy (1985) Irish law Reports 
Monthly 422 (another defective 
warrants case): 

Where the liberty of any person is 
concerned; where a valid arrest is 
fundamental to the validity of the 
proceedings; where sweeping powers 
are given to the police of both 
jurisdictions. I am not prepared to 
overlook [a]) careless approach and 
lack of attention to detail . . Narrow 
though this approach may be, the 
insistence on strict compliance with 
all the requirements of the exercise 
of statutory powers is a fundamental 
feature of our jurisprudence; it is the 
duty of the superior coons 10 ensure 
such vigilance: 

finally, a series of recent de- 
cisions of the Irish High and 
Supreme Courts give lie 10 the 
suggestion that our courts are not 
willing to extradite in politically 
sensitive cases. For example, in 
MqgtflrevJ&fl/ie (Supreme Court, 
July 31, 1985) the court reaffirmed 
its recently established principle 
that -members of illegal 
organisations committed to the 
disestablishment of the Constitu- 


Rents reform 

From Ms S. J. Cornish 
Sir, John Patten (“Time to reform 
rent law”, February 28) urges 
reform in rented housing generally 
and in tenants' rights particularly. 
To achieve this he declares that 
landlords should behave respon- 
sibly and tenants participate in 
management 

His argument fails on this point: . 
landlords and tenants are not of 
equal bargaining power. Demand 
exceeds supply, and always has 
done — even before the Rent Acts. 
This was the reason why protec- 
tion was required 35 years ago, 
and is still required today. Land- 
lords are also at an advantage in 
being (generally) better edu c ated, 
better organised and better in- 
formed. 

Water for sale 

From Lady Cook 
Sir, I was appalled to read in 
yesterday’s paper (report, March 
24) the Government's proposed 
rape of the water authorities, 
presumably to secure themselves 
money for “vote-buying” tactics 
before the next election. 

Why, if there is so much money 
in the water industry, has it not 
been used long since to renew the 
crumbling sewerage system and 
other needy parts of the infrastruc- 
ture? Why have we no co- 
ordinated system of water 
authority administration so that 
in times of drought or other 
disaster, money and resources 
from unaffected areas can be 
tapped to help those in diffi- 
culties? And, of course, why is 
there a different charge for water 
from one authority to another.

Children in care 

From Mr G. Godfrey-Isaacs 
Sir, I wish to add my support to 
the letter from Mr Louis Blom- 
Cooper,QC (March 19). I wonder 
if Mr Dennis Walters,MP, has 
seen a juvenile court in action and 
whether he is aware of the 
pressures on us. 

We, who deal with care cases in 
the first instance, hear almost' 
without exception that the local 
authorities see their first duty as 
the rehabilitation of the child and 
family rather than any other long 
term alternatives. 

We know when cases come back 
of the dedicated way in which this 

has been pursued - trial periods at 

home, case conferences held, sup- 
port provided in helping the 
family budget, clearing debts, 
providing home helps, the endless 


tion by force of arms cannot claim 
the benefit of the “political 
offence” exception contained in 
our extradition legislation.

From the Principal and Vice 
Chancellor of the University of St 
Andrews 

Sir, It has been suggested that Irish 
judges were without precedent in 
looking so narrowiv at the warrant 
in the case of Evelyn Glenholmes, 
but judges since the 17ib century 
have always been careful to the 
point of pedantry' in cases involv- 
ing the liberty of the person. On 
April 27, 1768. the great judge. 
Lord Mansfield, cancelled the 
outlawry of the most dangerous 
agitator' of ihe time. John Wilkes, 
on the ground that the writ for it 
had been made “at the County 
Court for the County of 
Middlesex” instead of “at the 
County Court of Middlesex for the 
County of Middlesex”. 

Thai slip of the pen seems less 
serious than our bungling in the 
extradition case.

From Mr John Phipps 
Sir. With reference to the 
Glenholmes “blunder” (report. 
March 24) the issue of arrest 
warrants is the responsibility of 
the magistrate — normally with 
the assistance of his clerk — before 
whom the required information 
has been sworn. The responsibility 
of the DPP, when he is the 
informant, is surely limited to 
seeing that the contents of the 
information are true to the best of 
his knowledge; similarly when a 
police officer or any other person 
is the informant 

It is for the magistrate and his 
clerk to see that no warrant is 
issued on the former's authority, 
unless the information on which 
that wanant is based has been 
sworn, justifies the issue of a 
warrant 

The DPP or other informant 
cannot normally be blamed for the 
failure of the magistrate to require 
the infoimation to be sworn 
before him. 

Yours truly, 

JOHN PHIPPS.

In any case, I am not sure that 
the Government ought to 
encourage landlords into the mar- 
ket by returning, albeit step-by- 
step, to the situation in which 
landlords are able to evict tenants 
and charge a “market" rent which 
tramples ihe weakest, poorest 
people to the bottom of the pile. 

If the Government wants to 
stimulate landowners to let their 
properties, it. would do better to 
accord similar tax benefits to the 
landlord's business to those cur- 
rently accorded to other slack 
trades, and pay for the stimulation 
itself. 

Yours faithfully.

From Mr Henry G. Button 
Sir, The recent meeting of the 
Board of Trade (report, March 22) 
was said to have been the first 
since 1851. but it was not stated 
whether the Archbishop of Canter- 
bury and all other members of the

patience and dedication leave us 
often quite amazed at the re- 
sources deployed. In one recent 
case in front of me. the same soda! 
worker, in a ten-year period, had 
spent well over 400 hours in face- 
to-face contacts with the parents 
and family. 

Only the social service depart- 
ment themselves can know the 
quality of the social workers they 
have available to deploy, the level 
of intervention they can manage 
and carry an overall responsibility 
for the day-to-day management 

Abuse, when and if it comes, has 
to be spotted and undemood 
instantaneously and I suggest no 
juvenile court is equipped to 
exercise that responsibility. And 
that if the review of these cases 
rested with us, poorer decisions 
would be reached which in no way 


Radio stations 
under pressure 

From the Managing Director of 
Radio H "yrern 

Sir. The IBA’s intransigence is 
once again apparent from their 
Rank/Granada interference, but is 
the world aware that this bureau- 
cratic quango is driving its own 
smalt radio stations into the 
ground? 

There has been one actual 
bankruptcy and four covered-up 
bankruptcies in their system to 
date. Some 50 per cent of them 
lost money last year. The IBA, 
faced with this, looks for future 
grandeur in regional and national 
radio. They are quite happy for 
local stations, who serve their 
communities tremendously well, 
to disappear. 

That might be fine for their 
army of 1,500. all with five-year 
no-redundancy agreements ana an 
increase in senior salaries ofl 1 per 
cent due next month. For my staff 
of 20. who have worked pro- 
digiously and gone without rises 
for two years to help us survive, it 
is s monstrous injustice: 

The IBA extracts no less than £7 
million annually from indepen- 
dent radio. Will no one rid us of 
this gargantuan parasite?

US and the Contras 

From the Dean of St Paul's 
Sir. Mr Graham Greene’s letter 
(March 20) insisting on the Chris- 
tian element in the regime in 
Nicaragua can be reinforced by the 
recent experience of a small 
ecumenical group. Catholic and 
Protestant, which visited Nica- 
ragua in February. 

We joined the Via Crucis, led by 
Father Miguel d'Escoto. the For- 
eign Minister of Nicaragua. More 
than 200 pilgrims walked the 
entire distance of over 100 miles, 
but as they approached the vil- . 
lages and towns on the way, 
hundreds and sometimes thou- 
sands came out to greet them 
carrying statues and crosses. 

At Esteli Bishop Lopez wel- 
comed the procession and at a 
crowded Eucharist greeted Father 
Miguel and the pilgrims, and the 
Eucharist was celebrated in the 
presence of several thousand 
worshippers. 

Of course, in Nicaragua there 
are many who would describe 
themselves as Nationalists and 
many who are Marxists, but this 
small impoverished country is 
being influenced by Christian 
communities, especially among 
the poor, who long for a way of 
life, which they have not experi- 
enced in their history, where there 
is a measure of justice, peace and 
equality. 

The countries of Central Amer- 
ica who have suffered so severely 
from outside intervention in the 
past need the help of all their 
neighbours to achieve stability. 
They do not deserve armed inter- 
vention.

Budget reflection 

From Mr F. A. Falk 
Sir, In the article today (March 21) 
on the effect on charities of the 
Budget lax changes, Philip Regan 
refers to the lack of uniformity of 
charity accounts and criticises the 
Chancellor for failing to trade new 
tax pri vileges for better accounting 
practices and measures to 
encourage efficiency. 

Mr Regan appears to be un- 
aware of the progress and concern 
of charities and their advisers in 
these manes. 

With the encouragement of 
charities generally in November, 
1985, the accounting profession 
introduced a statement of recom- 
mended practice for charities' 
accounts. Many charities already 
comply with these recommenda- 
tions. 

Further, an improvement in the 
quality of the accounts has been 
apparent from those submitted to 
the annual Charity Accounts 
Award competition. Mr Regan’s 
comments are an unfortunate slur 
on the effects and achievements of 
many charities and their pro- 
fessional advisers. 

Yours faithfully.

Magistrates are not appointed 
for their knowledge and expertise 
in looking at complex family 
relationships. That does not mean 
that I lack confidence in my 
colleagues in the juvenile courts 
but we are not trained to provide 
such a specialist service. 

I urge that to muddle at this

welfare function of foe social 
service departments would dilute 
the quality of their work, add 
confusion and achieve tittle.

ON THIS DAY 


MARCH 31 1885 

Louis Riel (1844-85), a Mttis 
(half-breed) led the first rebellion j 
against the Canadian Government \ 
in 1869. For it he was exiled, but 
later returned to become a 
member of the Dominion 
Parliament from which, in 1875, 
he was exiled. The Metis in the 
Saskatchewan river region called 
for his help in defying the 
authorities and in 1885 Riel 
formed aprovisional 
govemment.The rebellion was 
crushed if ter some fierce fighting 
and Riel was found guilty of 
treason and executed at Regina on 
November 16 1885.

THE OUTBREAK 
IN CANADA. 

PHILADELPHIA. March 30. 
The Saskatchewan rebellion, orga- 
nized by RieL wears a serious 
aspect. His half-breed followers 
have for some time past been 
disaffected, because of the failure 
of the Dominion Government to 
give them the rights promised at 
the close of the former Manitoba 
rising. They have selected this time 
for a rebellion because the Canadi- 
an troops are being prepared for 
service elsewhere. 

They — the half-breeds — control 
a region favourable for a protracted 
guerilla warfare, one which is 
distant from the railway, and m 
which transportation is difficult 
Almost the entire half-breed popu- 
lation in that region sympathize 
with Riel, together with nearly 
every one of the Indian tribes. 
Riel’s rendezvous is a strong 
position beyond Fort Carieton. 
four miles to the south-west of 
Duck Lake, where he has cannon 
rifles, and ample supplies of provi- 
sions. He has also established a 
good organization, with scouts and 
runners going all about the coun- 
try. to watch and report on the 
movements of the Government 
troops. 

Major Crozier's advance from 
Fort Carieton was intended to 
destroy this rendezvous, but Riel 
defeated him, as already reported. 
In this fight of last Thursday the 
rebels lost 40 men killed and 23 
wounded, among the killed being 
some Montana cowboys, from the 
United States, who had taken 
cannon and rifles to RieL 

After his defeat. Major Crozier 
retreated to Fort Carieton, fol- 
lowed by the rebel scouts, but the 
attack was not renewed. Colonel 
Irvine had a garrison at Fort 
Carieton of 260 mounted police. It 
being evident that Riel could 
overwhelm him, the Colonel deter- 
mined to evacuate Fort Carieton. 
which stands in a hollow, alongside 
of the Saskatchewan river, with a 
high bluff rising behind it Having 
been built only for an Indian 
trading post, it was untenable if 
attacked; and nobody had resided 
there except the mounted police 
and the Hudson Bay Company’s 
officials. 

Colonel Irvine, therefore, on 
Friday burnt the fort, with its 
stores, destroyed the telegraph 
station, and all valuable articles, 
and then retreated towards 
Qu'Appelle, halting at another 
trading post called Prince Albert. 
Here some small reinforcements 
were found; and the police forth- 
with proceeded to strengthen the 
position, which will be in future the 
Government outpost. 

Colonel Irvine sent despatches 
to General Middleton, at 
Qu'Appelle, that a large force must 
be brought up in order to subdue 
the rebellion. General Middleton, 
who had intended to march from 
Qu'Appelle last week, then decided 
to await reinforcements. He was 
expected to advance today. He has 
an available transport service of 
240 teams, but bis force must make 
a difficult march to the north-west 
for nearly 200 miles. 

The news caused great excite- 
ment throughout Canada, where a 
popular movement has been set on 
foot for raising a volunteer force to 
put down the rising. The Canadian 
Pacific Railway is organizing a 
defensive force to protect its line, if 
threatened, to the west of 
Winnipeg. 7 

Troops are gathering at Toronto, 
Ottawa, and Montreal, to increase 
General Middleton's force. 
Two thousand men are already 
available for the movement against 
RieL though a large portion cannot 
reach Qu'Appelle for several days. 

The plan of the campaign is to 
advance in two columns one, 
under General Middleton, will 
move to Prince Albert and then 
against Riel; while another will 
march westward, by Battleford, in 
order to prevent the retreat of the 
rebels southward, should they 
endeavour to escape into the 
United States. 

LATER. 

Prince Albert, which Colonel 
Irvine holds as a Government 
outpost, is about 20 miles to the 
nortb-east of Fort Carieton. 
Battleford, 50 miles to the west of 
Fort Carieton. has been aban- 
doned, the settlers, with their 
■families, being sent to Swift Cur- 
rent, a station 150 miles to the 
southward, on the Canadian Pacif- 
ic Railway, west of Qu'Appelle. 

Agents of the Canadian Govern- 
ment have been malting large 
purchases of carbines and car- 
tridges of American arms manufac- 
turers at New haven, Connecticut, 
for use in the north-west.

Science report 


Anti-asthma drug 
may aid lean meat 


By Andrew Wiseman 


An anti-asthmatic drag, 
dentmteroL amid become the 
basis for providing a substitute 
for anabolic steroids, used by 
farmers to increase the protein 
content oT their animals. 

That would provide an alter- 
native to the hormone sub- 
stances added to animal 
feeds tuffs, or growth promoters 
as they are known, which have 
caused a furore, because of the 
danger of traces of these sub- 
stances con taminatin g milk and 
meat 

Until comparatively recently 
such steroids - which in any 
case are effective with only some 
animals - and natural poly- 
peptide hormones were consid- 
ered to be the only method of 
reducing body fat and increasing 
body protein, thus ultimately 
prod ocing more lean meat. 

Now, however. Dr Peter 
Reeds and his colleagues at the 
AFRC (Agriculture and Food 
Research Centre) Rowett Re- 
search Institute in Aberdeen, are 
among British scientists in- 
vestigating a series of com- 
pounds originally developed as 
anti-asthmatic drugs. 

Structurally related to the 
catecholamines, these alter- 
native compounds have dem- 
onstrated the same effects as 
steroids. Furthermore, unlike 
such hormones as trenbolooe 
acetate, they could usefully oc 
given to a wide variety or 
animals, and also increase pro- 
tein development when admin- 
istered in their diet. 

The Rowett Institute 
researchers studied the nature 
and action of denbutero! in the 
laboratory and on animals. 

Initial experiments with rats, 
disclosed important differences 
between the action of this anti- 
asthmatic drug and that of 
steroid growth stimulating 
agents. For instance, unlike 
many hormones, it was effective 


an noo-castreted males through- 
out their growth period, and 
protein accretion was limited to 
skeletal and cardiac muscles 
without affecting other organs. 
That does not happen when 
trenbolooe acetate is admin- 
istered. Clenbnterol acted 
quickly and the compound did 
not increase the animal's ap- 
petite; because of that there was 
only a marginal increase in its 
weight 

Cater work with sheep and 
cattle showed that denbuterol 
bad also a traumatic effect on 
increased muscle protein, 
contributing to a marked in- 
crease in muscle growth. 

The drug reduced the rate of 
nitrogen excretion and coo-[ 
seq neatly cut the loss of body 
protein, even in animals which 
were not given protein in their 
diet 

The researchers say that al- 
though the next generation of. 
clenbmerol and similar agents 
may prove to be of great 
practical value as growth 
promoters, several Important 
questions remain unanswered. 

Their find logs have shown, 
however, that although its ac- 
tions have some initial effects on 
the heart rate, apart from its 
influence on body temperature, 
fat and protein deposition, those, 
appear to be separable func- 
tions. Therefore it should be 
possible to devise compounds 
which will stimulate only protein 
deposition, which is all that is 
needed to obtain leaner meat. 

Research is showing the way 
towards the development of 
agents capable of promoting 
muscle growth in skeletal mus- 
cles. thus providing alternatives 
to sieroids, which, in some cases, 
□right affect the well-being of an 
animal. As a bonus, those new 
growth promoting compounds 
should work more efficiently 
than existing ones.

Christianity’s struggle to find 
a place for the Promised Land 


The Chief Rabbi of Great Britain, Sir 
Immanuel Jakobovits, has greeted the 
forthcoming visit of Pope John Paul li 
to the chief synagogue in Rome with the 
remade "Had such a visit come a 
thousand years earlier, many millions of 
lives might bave been saved from brutal 
violence and humiliation." 

In a letter to Dr Elio Toaff, his Italian 
opposite number. Sir Immanuel .de- 
scribes the visit as an “unprecedented 
gesture", and “an important step to- 
wards reconciliation” of whiefa the 
significance will be hailed by European 
Jewry in particular. He went on to 
suggest, however, that there should be 
an appeal to the Pope for “the 
elimination of the residua] Christian 
hesitations in accepting the State of 
Israel as the fulfilment of miileniaJ 
Jewish dreams." 

The Vatican should recognize the 
special bond of Jews with Jerusalem, 
because it was the Jews who find 
sanctified 3,000 years ago a city now 
held holy by three world faiths, he 
added. 

There are two issues here, only one of 
which is specific to the Roman Catholic 
Church. That is the issue of diplomatic 
recognition of Israel by the Holy See. 
recognition withheld for the technical 
reason that Israel is a state of which the 
boundaries with its neighbours are not 
agreed by peace treaties. 

Unofficially, most Jewish experts 
suspect that the real reason is pro-Arab 
sympathy in the Vatican, particularly, 
sympathy with Christian Palestinians. 
The lack of Vatican recognition of the 
state of Israel is a matter on which many 
Jews feel surprisingly strongly: it is 
difficult to imagine any other country in 
lhe world knowing or caring much 
whether the Vatican thought it existed 
or noL 

The second issue is whether Chris- 


tianity as a world faith, Roman Catholic 
or not, can find a place in its theology 
for the return of the Jewish people to the 
Promised Land. Christianity tells a 
story of God’s dealings with the human 
race which begins with the history of the 
Jews, but changes course radically in the 
decades after Jesus’s crucifixion to 
become lhe story of the early church, 
with the centre of attention anrient 
Rome, not ancient Jerusalem. 

The story accepts the central role of 
the Jews in God’s providence only as far 
as the first Easter. This marked (soterio- 
logically) the point at which the divine 
plan changed, with the death of the hope 
of building salvation on a new chapter 
in Jewish history, and its rebirth in an 
alternative faith proclaimed to the 
world through the chinch. 

Had the plan not foiled, Christianity 
would simply have been the new 
Judaism; but the Christian tradition has 
always assumed it was meant to foil - 
hence “Good” Friday. To say other- 
wise would be to question foe 
Crucifixion as the necessary atonement 
for sin. 

But whatever this theology said 
positively about God’s love for man, it 
had a hidden and very negative implica- 
tion for the Christian view of the Jews. 
It meant they lost their central role, and 
became an anachronism. They were 
God's broken and discarded tool. 

It is hardly surprising, therefore, that 
popes have not been regular visitors to 
the synagogues of Rome. The wider 
implication has been that the “Old 
Covenant" and all that went with it is 
no longer valid, including the Jewish 
.claim, on religious grounds, to the land 
oflsraeL 

On such theoretical foundations as 
these, and not just on some unfortunate 
p a ss a ge s in Passion according to St 
John, grew the most shameful sub-plot 


of Christian history, the persecution ol 
- the Jews. Not all Jews who wish 
Christianity to repent of that, realize 
that they are asking for an alteration in a 
basic element of Christian theology. 

They have a duty to ask that of 
course, and to push persistently and 
hard for it, for they know the conse- 
quences of complacency, but they tend 
to ask instead for tolerance, for live-and- 
tet-live. There have been periods of 
toleration in (he past -it is a gross 
caricature of Christian history to treat 
the Spanish Inquisition as normative br- 
ibe Church’s treatment of the Jews - but 
the internal logic of Christian theology 
has eventually brought persecution to 
the surface again. 

It was the Holocaust which supplied 
sufficient shock to those old Christian 
certainties to reopen some of the 
fundamental questions. It drew the 
attention of theologians to those pas- 
sages, for instance in St Paul, which 
suggested an alternative view of the 
divine master plan. . 

It could not be that God had 
abandoned the Jewish people, for the 
dreadful consequences of such a belief 
were there in history for all to see. These 
hints in St Paul are being gradually built 
Into a different scheme, of two parallel 
paths of salvation. Jewish and Chris- 
tian, but those scholars pursuing such 
researches are not finding it easy to 
p re s e rve what is unique to Christianity. 

Meanwhile, the mainstream churches 
are not ready to admit that Christianity 
has nothing to offer a Jew, so that Jews 
are in no need of conversion. Jewish 
leaders, when they ask for such an 
admission, do not seem aware that they 
are asking a great deal, not just a 
concession in the rarefied field ofinter- 
foith relations, but a redesigning of 
Christianity's central self- 
understanding.

The Night Sky in April 


By Our Astronomy 
Correspondent 

Mercury will reach its greatest 
morning elongation (28 deg) on 
the !3Ut but is unlikely to be 
seen in the eastern twilight. 

Venus has become a 

conspicuous object in the west- 
ern sky and by (he end of the 
month will be above the horizon 
for two hours after sunset, 
magnitude -3.9. Moon near it on 
the 10th- 

Mars is a morning star, but 
although the time of rising does 
get earlier the change is stiu very 
slow, about an average of 01 H. 
Moon in the area on the 1st and 
29lb. 

Jupiter should be coming into, 
view in Ute eastern twilight: it 
rises only one hour before the 
Sun at -the beginning of the 
month, though by two hours at 
the end. and it is bright at 
magnitude -2. 1 . Moon near it on 
the 6th. 

Saturn will be rising before 
midnight. Its motion is now 
retrograde and it will be in 
conjunction with Alltares again 
on the 26th. Moon close by on 
that same night. 

Uranus will have risen by 


midnight in the middle of the 
month and Neptune about an 

hour later. 

Pluto, being visible only with 
fairly large amateur telescopes, 
is not normally mentioned in 
these notes. It will be in oppo- 
sition on the 26th. magnitude 
13.7. in Viigo. 

The Moon: last quarter, Idl; 
new, 9d06h (edipseh first quar- 
ter, 17dllh; fun, 24dl3h 
(eclipse). Neither of the eclipses 
will be observable from Europe. 
The partial edipse of the Sun on 
the 9th is limited lo the South, 
including Australia: on the 24th 
the total eclipse of the Moon will 
have ended before raoonrise in 
the United Kingdom. 

Algol: the only evening mini- 
mum readily observable this 
month is at 9d2lKh: forthe next 
three months the star will be 
very low in the north and 
predictions will be omitted from 
these notes. 

As readers will know, the 
Giotto mission to Halley’s 
Comet was very successful. A 
large quantity of data as well a$ 
pictures were received, and 
analysing them will take many 
months. For observers in die 


southern hemisphere, tbis 
month win be the best viewing 
time with, it is hoped, a 
.spectacular object high in the 
sky. 

Towards the end of the month 
there may be a chance to see the 
comet from the British Ides, 
although unfortunately there 
will be moonlight until the last 
week. Referring to our map, on 
the 26th the comet will be 
approaching the lowest star of 
Crater, and on May 1 will be 
dose to the next one above and 
to the right 

As the stats are feint and their 
altitude low they may not be 
visible, so an alternative 
approximate location of the 
comet at the hour of our map on 
the 26th is altitude KM2 deg, 
true bearing 200 deg. Binoculars 
will probably be necessary. 

The location of the comet 
draws attention to a group of 
inconspicuous but ancient 
constdlations. Hydra is a very 
long chain, about 80 deg of it,m 
with only one star brighter than 
third magnitude. The people of 
Egypt (who not surprisingly 
linked the constellation with ibe 
Nile) and Babylonia lived in 
lower latitudes; there the celcs- 


OBITUARY 

DR DENIS BRINTON 
Distinguished neurologist 


Dr Denis Brinton, FRCP, 
who died on March 13, at the 
age of 83, was a distinguished 
neurologist- He was Pbysh 
cian-in -charge in the Depart- 
ment of Nervous Diseases at 
St Mary's Hospital, London, 
from 1935 to 1963 and Dean 
of its Medical School from 
1946 to 1951. 

Denis Hubert Brinton vas 
born on December 9, 1902. 
His father was Senior Classics 
Master at Eton, so it was 
natural that his son should be 
given that incomparable com- 
panion for any kind of walk in 
life, a classical education. 

From Eton he went to New 
College, Oxford, and thence as 
a University Scholar to St 
Mary's Hospital Medical. 
School for his clinical training, 
where began an association 
that remained unbroken, save 
for war service, until his 
chosen, somewhat early, re- 
tirement in 1963. However, he 
remained on the School Coun- 
cil until 1979, making a total 
span of 54 years at St Mary’s. 

Having decided to follow 
neurology as a discipline, one 
well suited to his precise, 
deductive mind, he did the 
then obligatory apprentice- 
ship at the National Hospital. 
He was appointed to the 
honorary staff of St Mary's 
and the National Hospital in 
the same year. 

Throughout the War he 
served as a consultant neuro- 
psychiatrist in the RAF with

His cultivated mind,

Such qualities made him** 
clear choice in 1946 for fife 
years ofdeanshipat St Mary s, 
to break a mould with mini- 
mal hurt ami to create an 
imag e for a new era that 
remains successful to this day. 

By his first wife, Joan, he

of her untime ly death in 1971 
was assuaged by his happy 
marriage to Rosemary, with 

whom he had worked as Dean. 


BISHOP YENNADIOS 


Bishop Yennadios. who has 
died at the age of 93. was one 
of three senior bishops of the 
Orthodox Church in Cyprus 
who were unfrocked for con- 
spiring against Archbishop 
Makarios in 1972. 

This revolt, engineered by 
the Athens military junta 
which wanted to encompass 
Makarios’s downfall, un- 
leashed a sequence of events 
whiefa eventually led to the 
Turkish invasion of Cyprus, 
and the partitioning of the 
island in 1974. 

Yennadios was Bishop of 
Paphos when, in 1972, at a 
‘rump' synod in Limassol, he 
and the Bishops of Kitium and 
Kyrenia attempted to unseat 
-Archbishop Makarios on the 
grounds that his dual headship 
of church and state was con- 
trary to canon law. 

In the following year how- 


ever the three were found 
guilty of schism by a synod of 
the Eastern Orthodox 
Churches in the Middle East 
and were themselves d Sf 1 
throned and deprived of cleri- 
cal power and authority. 

In 1974 Yennadios was 
proclaimed Archbishop by the' 
Eoka-B terrorists whom he 
supported, and swore in Nicos 
Samson, the ex-gnerilla gun- 
man, as President of Cyprus. 

The new regime was howev- 
er, short-lived as Turkey, pro- 
voked by what it saw as Greek 
nationalist provocation by the 
Athens government, invaded 
Cyprus a week later. 

Yennadios subsequently ac- 
cepted a pardon, after the 
death of Makarios, and was 
restored to the office of bish- 
op, though not to his see of 
Paphos.

MISS EVE SAVILLE 


Miss Eve Saville, MBE, who 
died recently at the age of 78, 
was for thirty years editorial 
secretary of the British Jour- 
nal of Criminology and gener- 
al secretary of the Institute for 
the Study and Treatment of 
Delinquency. Both institu- 
tions can now claim a history, 
prestige and scientific reputa- 
tion mainfainwH almost Single 
handed at times by Miss 
saville. 

She took over an institute 
formed in the early 1930s 
from the Association for the 
Scientific Treatment of Crimi- 
nals and the celebrated work 
of such eminent lawyers and 
psychiatrists as Lord Choriey, 
and Dis Carroll, Glover and 
Mannheim. 

Miss Saville aimed to con- 
tinue their pioneer vision and 
maintained the interdisciplio- 
ary basis, concentrating on the 
wider aspects of prevention 
and treatment of crime, with 
emphasis on 'study' in three 
directions - research, publics 
tions and educational 
activities.' 

Although it had now be- 
come a volutary 
organisation with limited 
funds. Miss Saville achieved 
success in all three aspects , 


the 1STD being renowned for 
a variety of research studies 
which became important oon- 
* tributions published as aseries 
; of pamnhlets over the years. 

She wifi be remebered best 
however for her inimitable 
biannual bulletins, die many 
study tours abroad, confer- 
ences, and courses, regular 
visits to penal and therapeutic 
institutions and the annual 
winter lecture series. 

No small part of that suc- 
cess was in bringing together, 
over those thirty years for 
discussion, psychiatrists, psy- 
chologists , lawyers and magis- 
trates, academics and 
teachers, probation officers 
and social workera, the prison 
service and the police, resi- 
dential staff and the layman. 

She remained throughout 
her life a private, committed 
individual with both intellec- 
tual and managerial distinc- 
tion; she accepted tribute only 
reluctantly, and only pan of 
her stipend, but remained in 
office until her death and 
leaves a real problem in the 
survival of a major establish- 
ment for the study and treat- 
ment" of delinquency in this ■ 
country. • m 


MR JULIAN ROOSEVELT 


Mr Julian Roosevelt, one of 
the two United States repre- 
sentatives on the Internation- 
al Olympic Committee, has 
died in hospital in New York. 
He was 64. 

Roosevelt, a great-nephew 
of the former American Presi- 
dent, Theodore Roosevelt, 
won a yachting gold medal in 
the Olympic Games in Helsin- 
ki in 1952. and was a also a 
member of the Unted States 


team for the Games in 1948 in 
London and again in Mel- 
bourne in 1956. 

He had also been a member 
of uie Harvard University 
rowing crew. 

"as.ctected a member of 
the IOC in 1974. As such he 

had proposed that South Afri- 
ca be readmitted to the Olym- 
pic family for the Los Angeles 
Games m 1984, but there was 
tittle support for the motion. 


tial equator has a meridian 
altitude of about 60 deg. 

Furthermore, mu ch of H ydra 
lay 5.000 yean ago along the 
equator, though it is now to the 
south of it. In Greek mythology 
the killing of Hydra, the Water 
Snake, was one of the labours of 
Hercules. Corvus the Raven or 
Crow is alighting on Hydra and 
Crater the Cup is resting oa iL 
The group has been associated 
with the Deluge, and Corvus 
with the bind sent out by Noah 
to check how the Flood was 
receding. 

Crater to the Greeks was, 
among other things, “The Gob- 
let of Apollo'', to the Romans 
“The Cup of Apollo”, and to the 
Babylonians “The Bowl of the 
Snake”. Corvus has two stars 
brighter than third magnitude, 
but Corvus none brighter than 
fourth. 

As far as the bright stars are 
concerned, the night sky is not 
so very different from last 
month, though the descent of 
Orion into the rapidly advanc- 
ing twilight is obvious. The 
lengthening daylight reduces the 
“life" of winter constellations, 
whereas in the autumn the 
shortening days prolongs that of 
the summer groups.

THE TIMES MONDAY MARCH 31 198b 

THE ARTS 

Jack Lang (right) became the most visible, popular and 
sometimes abrasive French Minister of Culture since 
Malraux, bringing the whole question of government and 
the arts to the forefront of public consciousness. But now 
the government has changed, and his successor, Francois 
Leotard (left), finds himself with hugely controversial 
projects already in hand. Charlotte Mosley reports 

Ought the nation to 
contribute to our 
dreams and desires? 





Attracted by the headline “Les 
Annees Lang", a rineasie friend of 
mine bought the latest issue of Les 
Cahiers au Cinema, anticipating a 
review of his hero Fritz Lang's 
career. It says much for toe 
outgoing French Minister of Cul- 
ture (or perhaps about my friend's 
interest in politics) that toe long 
article in this respected monthly 
was entirely devoted to Jack Tang . 
With toe change of government 
France has lost -its most visible 
Minister of Culture since Malraux. 
Indeed it has lost its most popular 
Minister, who soon became known 
as the Minister of Propaganda for 
toe Socialist government. 

Of course be has not found 
favour with everyone, nor has his 
energetic wife Monique C*La Mau- 
vaise Lang”) who according to the 
Figaro magazine manipulated in a 
rather dubious fashion toe interna- 
tional show-business personalities 
who “signed” one of Mitterrand’s 
election appeals. This appeal. 


which took toe form of lull-page 
advertisements in the national 
press, exhorting the French to re- 
elect toe government that had put 
France back on toe cultural map, 
typified for Lang's detractors toe 
worst of his reign: a lot of money 
spent for show. 

The English spelling of his first 
name is misleading: on the one 
band be has been one of the most 
vociferous critics of “Franglais" 
and has fought against the en- 
croachment of American culture in 
French cinema and television, 
branding Dallas and Dynasty as the 
equivalent of cultural imperialism 
(which has not stopped either series 
being shown on French television). 
On toe other hand, Lang has 
showered foreign stars with toe 
Legion of Honour decoration, in- 
cluding Elizabeth Taylor and Mar- 
tha Graham. 

Lang has left his successor, 
Francois Leotard, with a difficult 
act to follow. During his ministry 


Giscardian policy of promoting 
France's cultural heritage came 
-into its own, helped by a phenome- 
nal increase ra toe cultural budget. 
The subsidy for tbe film industry 
alone was increased 7.5 times from 
£21 million in 1977-81 to £150 
million during Lang’s five-year 
reign. No area of toe arts, however 
lowly, was considered unworthy of 
state intervention. A comic-strip 
museum is being built in Angou- 
leme, a school for pop singers was 
set up two years ago and a national 
centre for circus training opened in 
a Parisian suburb on January 13 
this year. 

But these are small fry. The 
Socialists' most ambitious and 
controversial plan centred around 
toe £1.4 billion Grands Projets 
which not even tbe austerity 
programme of 1985 seems to have 
dented. It is for these that Jade 
Lang's term of office will almost 
certainly be remembered. The size 
and scope of the project are 


spectacular and make an impres- 
sive list. Most memorable, because 
of the passions it aroused, is 
LM. Pei’s glass pyramid which will 
crown toe expanded and renovated 
Louvre. Criticized by some as 
making tbe museum look like an 
annexe to Disneyland, it has had 
the advantage of allowing archeo- 
logical excavations to take place in 
toe 12 ib -century crypt which will 
be on show to toe public. 

At toe Bastille the foundation 
has been laid for what is toe most 
extravagant of toe Socialist pro- 
jects: a £200 million opera house 
designed by toe Canadian architect 
Carlos Ott due to open in 1989 
when it should be able to receive a 
million opera-lovers a year. An 
international communications cen- 
tre at a new Ministry of urbanism, 
housing and transport is rapidly 
being erected in Paris's mini- 
Manhattan. La Defense. The roof 
is being put on to an Arab Institute 
on toe Left Bank. The Ministry of 


Finance, which was finally prised 
out of toe Louvre, is being re- 
housed in a monumental “bru- 
xalist” complex along toe Seine at a 
cost of £250 million. The imagina- 
tive project of converting toe old 
Quai d'Orsay railway station into a 
museum of 1 9th -century art, which 
began under Giscard, was expand- 
ed by toe last government and 
should open in December this year. 

The scale of the Grands Projets 
has inevitibly meant that few have 
been brought to completion under 
toe Socialists. In order to show toe 
public that they were getting their 
money's-worth toe City of Science 
and Technology (not museum, as it 
might sound stuffy) was opened in 
unseemly haste on March 14 — two 
days before toe election. Only half 
toe projected building is completed 
and visitors at the inauguration 
had to wade through a sea of mud 
and avoid the wet paint. 

No doubt Lang has revitalized 
the arts by throwing vast sums of 


money at them. Even if he has 
turned them into a political foot- 
ball in toe process, at least he has 
brought the whole question of 
government and the arts to toe 
forefront of public consciousness. 
No one in Europe has posed toe 
whole question of public and 
private patronage in such acute 
terms. The new government will 
unquestionably cut back on these 
hugh subsidies and the arts will 
cease to be such a contentious 
political issue, but it will be 
impossible to undo all that toe 
abrasive former minister has 
achieved, and impossible to duck 
the public policy issues be has so 
brilliantly promoted. As Leotard 
said recently on television, “toe 
state should not intervene in our 
dreams and desires". But in 
France, at any rale, it is increasing- 
ly hard to see how this can be 
avoided unless a new race of 
private-sector Medici emerge be- 
tween now and toe year 2000 .

Silk Cut Festival 
Wembley Arena 

Though not without its mo- 
ments of drama, the opening 
night of this, the eighteenth 
annual gathering of tbe old- 
guard country clans, passed 
off with little sense of occa- 
sion. While their loyalty to toe 
cause is not in doubt, country 
fans can constitute a remark- 
ably placid audience. 

Johnny Russell, a discovery 
at fast year’s festival, where 
although low on the bill he 
earned a standing ovation, 
was again more successful 
than most acts in prompting a 
response, though this seemed 
to be' dire' more to' his smug 
jokes and home-spun philoso- 
phizing in between' numbers 
than to toe songs themselves. 
But where a little more atten- 
tion was required, as during 
Rattlesnake Annie’s brief 
acoustic set, a listless un- 
interest took hold. 

As well as playing his own 
set. George Hamilton TV was a 
charming and informative 
compile. “Our next guest has 
been a member of toe Grand 
Ole Opiy for 49 years”, be said 
with unforced admiration, an- 
nouncing Bill Monroe, who 
rattled on a brisk succession of 
traditional favourites.

Endless 

miracles 

London Choral 
Society/Glover 
Festival Hall 

It is not so easy to sit down 
and write sense after an expe- 
rience such as Bach's Si 
Matthew Passion : one’s im- 
mediate impression is that 
half the greatest music of the 
last 500 years is contained in 
this supreme expression of 
grief and its underlying thread 
of consolation. 

The performance took a 
while to find itself, some of 
Jane Glover’s tempi were half 
a notch too flow, as in toe 
opening chorus, which did not 
really develop enough mo- 
mentum to launch toe work 
on its long journey. But soon 
toe music seemed to take 
charge, as it always does, its 
interaction of narrative, con- 
templative and dramatic ele- 
ments mostly coming across 
with sufficient vividness. The 
London Choral Society made 
much of their dramatic set- 
pieces. while toe English 
Chamber Orchestra respond- 
ed tellingly to Bach’s endless 
miracles of instrumentation. 

Anthony Rolfe Johnson, in 
less than ideal voice, was 
nonetheless a commanding 
Evangelist Rodney McCann, 
replacing Willard White at 
short notice, made a dignified 
Christus; and toe arias drew 
some fine singing from the 
bass David Wilson-Johnson, 
the tenor Laurence Dale and 
(particularly) toe counter-ten- 
or Paul Esswood. 

Felicity Lott's gentle and 
pliable soprano was memora- 
bly suited to “Have Mercy, 
Lord", whose violin obbligato 
was wonderfully played by 
Jose-Luis Garcia. Here, of all 
places, we could have done 
without the determined 
coughing obbligato from a 
certain contingent of toe 
audience.

The different faces of James Cagney 



Cagney as Admiral Halsey. US commander in the Pacific, in Gallant Hours; Bottom in Midsummer Night’s Dream; and a police chief in Ragtime. 


From Ivor Davis 
Hollywood 

James Cagney, who went 
from a celebrated film song- 
aud-dance man to one of 
Hollywood's most lovable and 
most mimicked screen tOHgh 
guys, died at his farm in 
Duchess Grant)-. New York, 
yesterday after a long illness. 

The actor, who had suffered 
from falling health daring the 
last few years of his life, bad 
been discharged from hospital 
only a few days ago. He was 
86 . 

Although after 65 films 
Cagney whs best remembered 
for his roles as gangland 
mobsters in films like the 
Public Enemy, Angels With 


Dirty Faces. The Gallant 
Hours and LadykUler. it was 
his role in the 1942 film 
Yankee Doodle Dandy, in 
which he played George M 
Cohan, and won an Oscar for 
best actor, that turned him into 
almost a patriotic symbol for , 
the United States. In that 
musical be sang and danced in 
a magnfificent, strutting^ per- 
formance as the vaodevi Ilian 
Cohan. 

Throughout his lifetime he 
was one of the most mimicked 
Hollywood stars, with movie 
lines like “You dirty rat" 
(which he never delivered in a 
film) and “Don’t get me mad 
see" (which he did say oa 
screen) becoming staple im- 


personations in comedy acts 
for nearly half a century. 

It was in the 1931 film 
Public Enemy that Cagney got 
the toogb-gny label which 
stock for his entire life. In that 
picture be was asked to throw 
an omelette at co-star Mae 
Clark, but instead improvized, 
and squashed a grapefruit on 
her face thus launching one of 
the most lncrative tough-guy 
careers in screen history. 

Although recognized as a 
tough-as-steei screen type, an 
equal among contemporaries 
like Edward G. Robinson and 
Humphrey Bogart, in fife 
Cagney was a sweet self- 
effacing man, acutely uncom- 


fortable in the role as a high 
profile actor. 

He officially retired from 
Hollywood in 1961, explain- 
ing: “The days aren't long 
enough for me. I spend most of 
my tune on my farm." He did 
devote his energies to running 
his (arm, raising cattle and 
staying oat of the public 
spotlight. In 1974 be returned 
to Hollywood to become the 
first recipient of the American 
Film Institute's lifetime 
achievement award. 

James Francis Cagney, who 
was born in New York City in 
July 1899, the second of five 
children of an Irish saloon- 
keeper, vowed not to return to 
film-making hot in 1980 was 


tempted out of retirement to 
star in Milos Foreman's film 
Ragtime, in which he played a 
New York police commission- 
er. 

When asked about his long 1 
screen career and endnring 
tough-gay roles, Cagney said: 
“I was never a serious actor, I 
was a song-and-dance man, a 
hoofer." 

And asked why he retired 
from films so early, he ex- 
plained: “I didn't like it Fd 
been at it for some 40 years. It 
wasn't fan any more. After a 
while it gets down to essential 
needs. Yon need a wife, need 
friends, yon need some money, 
good talk and yon need the 
laughs." 


Village voice 




beheadm

The quarrel in the Temple Square, wherea 
visiting official was surrounded by angty 
villagers, threatened to get out of hand. 
“Fetch the headman," someone cafled out. 
He arrived running, just in time to avert a 
fracas, but has lived to regret his 
intervention. 

Naim Singh bad been staking tmonres 
among ■ government officials ever since he 
had teen elected headman. Otter headmen 
demanded bribes from 'diggers for support- 
ing ah application for a disability poisioiv 
for certifying a document, for any service it 
Was their duty to perform. They shared the 
proceeds with officials higher up the ladder. 
But Nain Singh would have no truck wi th tte 
system and denounced it at every 

opportunity. ■ • 

The hea dman, a taH, square-snouloerea 
man with a walrus moustache, could often be 
beard in the Temple Square thundering 
agains t the thieving bureaucracy — “paper 
horses," as he called them. 

He came from the Rajput caste, warriors- 
turned-fermers, yet the low-caste Harijans 
trusted him. They had been the formers' 
serfs, but he bad stood up for them when the 
Government abolished bondage in the 
1970s. He had risked his position in the 
Rajput community by freeing his own 
bondsmen and cajoling and bullying others 
to do Likewise. 

The official who bad started the alterca- 
tion in the square had come to the village to 
investigate the embezzlement rtf’ post office 
funds. He was aggressively drunk, foul- 
mouthed, provocative. The village suspected 
that the investigator's task was to protect 
officials guilty of comptierty, notto bnng the 
embezzler to book. , ' , , 

Inspector mutters 
vengeance threats 

Nam Singh had entered the crowd to 
disperse and gave the visitor a piece of his 
mind. Instead of provoking the villagers and 
causing a brawl, he said, he should be looking 
for the real culprits among his fellow 
officials, who were the source of all 
corruption. The inspector retired to sleep it 
oft muttering threats of vengeance. 

On his return to tire mountain township 
from which the region is administered, he 
reported that Nam Singh bad interfered with 
his attempt to carry out his assignment. Soon 
word reached tire village that the sub- 
divisional magistrate, the highest govern- 
ment officer in tire area, had ordered the 
headman's arrest — for ob str uct in g an official 
in the execution of his duty. 

Nam Singh had often told me that the 
magistrate was foe kingpin of the local 


system of coemption, aid . bad openly

magistrate could not have been unaware of

The magistrate who issued foe warrant for

EASTER MONDAY 


Are Afrikaners incapable 
of change? In the 

Western Cape, many are 
confounding the 
stereotype. More flexible 
than their fathers, 
not notably intolerant in 
attitude, they do 
not envisage an eruption 
sweeping them away 

On the 
lip of a 

volcano 

By J.M.Coetzee 


Pams 6y QM Qaktoiatt 


. 1 - 


Some 40 miles from Cape Town, 
oh the fringe of the wine-fa nnin g 
region of the Cape Province, lies 
Stellenbosch, the second-oldest 
town in South Africa. Though it is 
. -.the seal of a major university, 
. Stellenbosch is not a notably 
liberal place. Its students are well- 
behaved. its white voters have 
always stood firmly behind the 
. -National Party, which has held 
. -. :power since 1948. Liberals have 
gamed no footing here, but then 
neither has the ultra-right 
V A few months ago. the highway 
between Cape Town and Stellen- 
v-bpsch . ..was effectively dosed: 

' bands of black and coloured — 
mixed-race — youths hung about 
'dtti-flie vdges or waited on 
_ -^overpasses to stone cars. Burning 
barricades sometimes blocked the 
_ road; on baddays even the airport, 

\ which lies along this route, could 
: be ' readied only under police 
- escort, • 

Today, as I drive out to Stellen- 
bosch, the highway is reputed to 
be safe. 1 pass an armoured troop 
carrier parked under a tree. A 
soldier, crouched on the embank- 
ment, stares at something through 
binoculars. From the vicinity of 
die Crossroads squatter camp, an 
illegal shanty town that has been 
The scene' of recent violence, a 
pillar of yellow smoke rises into 
the air. The sun blazes down. All is 
quiet on_this southern front, by 
.• South African standards. 

I am on my way to meet some of 
. the citizens of Stellenbosch, 
.strangers as yet to me. to hear bow 
they fed about what is going on in 
our country. My mind is open, I 
am ready to be surprised. 

A week ago, in the village of 
Greyiown. I overheard a former, a 
fot apoplectic-looking man . in 
khakis, everyone’s notion of the 
brutal slavemaster. “P.W. Botha 
and his promises”, he growled. “If 
he won’t put up, he should shut 
up.” (The Afrikaans idiom he used 
was a good deal cruder man the 
English version.) If, even in the 
somnolent remoter valleys, Afri- 
kaners were irritated by the snail’s 
pace of change, how much bolder 
might they not be nearer the big 
city? 

As I will discover, the people I 
interview do not conform to the 
rei&ung stereotype of the Afrika- 
ner. They do not speak 
contempuously of blacks. They 
are not notably intolerant in their 
attitudes, heartless in their con- 
duct or indolent in their daily life. 
’They seem not to bear the worst 
marks of apartheid, a doctrine and 
a set of social practices that scars 
the moral being of whites as it 
degrades and demeans blacks. 
Whether they can be said to be 
representative of their three mil- 
lion compatriots — in other 
words. of 60 per cent of South 
Africa’s whites — I do not know. 
They all identify themselves as 
Afrikaners, but their allegiances 
seem to lie as much with the broad 
South African middle class as with . 
the Afrikaner tribe. In this respect 
they are typical of the generation 
bom after 1943, a generation that, 
having grown up under Afrikaner 
hegemony, can afford to be more 
self-assured, less belligerently na- ' 
tionaliscic than their fathers. t 

Indeed, I am struck above all by ! 
. the calm of those I interview. They « 

do not talk like people perched on 1 
the lip of a volcano. All of them 1 
believe the world around them is I 
changing (and should be changing t 
foster), but nowhere do they seem s 
to envisage an eruption of change i 
■dial might sweep them away. Yet * 
they live in country seething with 
Mack, anger, and at war on its v 
borders. Has the ring of steel a 
around the black townships fos- v 
tered in. them an unreal sense of r 
security, a culpable ignorance, a s 
foolish calm? Or do they . in truth o 

have darker fears than they are U 


u ready, to divulge? Are they telling 
& the truth, or have they chosen to 
s engage in acts of self-presentation 
1 for an audience of strangers? 

5 I put the question, yet it seems 
to me falsely put. How often in our 
i lives does the truth of ourselves, 
the whole and unm i ye d truth, 

: emerge? Are we not routinely 

- engaged in acts of selfpresenta- 
I lion, acts which it would be 

- excessively puritanical to con- 

i demn as insincere? Surely, in 

getting to know the truth of 
' another person, we neither accept 
. nor reject bis self-presentations, 
butiread them, as best we casein 
whatever context we can summon 
up. A few hours of conversation 
will not give us privileged access 
to “The Afrikaner”: it would be 
naive to expect lhaL What we 
have below are excerpts from the 
texts of four lives, fragments of the 
text of a national discourse. 

I n one of the pleasanter 
white suburbs, I meet 
Kaffie Pretorius, an attrac- 
tive matronly woman in 
her 30s. Brought up in 
Lambert's Bay, on South 
Africa's west coast, where her 
father kept a store, she married an 
academic, settled in Stellenbosch, 
paints in her spare time. But die 
still hankers for the desolate west- 
coast l a nds c ap e: when she goes 
there on holiday, she takes her 
children on long rambles in the 
veld to teach them the plant-lore 
she teamed as a child. 

We speak in Afrikaans, our 
common tongue, the lan g ua g e of 
most of rural South Africa. Like 
everyone else I speak to, Kaffie 
Pretorius is depressed about the 
foiling economy, about accelerat- 
ing inflation and the collapse of 
the South African currency, which 
has led in only a few months to a 
doubling in the prices of imported 
goods, including petroL Yet, to my 
surprise, she observes that these 
economic woes may not be such a 
bad thing: “For the first time. 
Whites are truly affected — for the 
first time they must think serious- 
ly about the future.” And then, 
after a pause: “How did we think 
we could hold on to all of this?” 
She waves a hand to embrace her 
spacious home, the prosperous 
neighbourhood, and beyond it the 
town of Stellenbosch, surrounded 
by thousands of acres of farmland. 
“How did we ever think we could 
hold on to it?” 

I have no reply. I am touched by 
her words; by their suddenness, by 1 
the feeling behind them. Perhaps 1 
one can be so naked only with 1 
strangers. Yet afterwards I wonder 1 
whether J would not have been 
equally touched, though in a 
different way, had she lamented: 
“How can they take all this away 
from us?” Is it a good idea to 
indulge, in oneself or anyone else, 
these fits of voluptuous self- 
recrimination? “Things go in 
phases”, she resumes. “We are the 
generation that will have to make 
the adjustment Our children will 
find it easier. Already, children 
find it easier to relate to coloured 
friends than we ever did.” 

In what spheres of life, I ask. are 
whites going to find it hardest to ;? 
adjust? "Fust, education. When 
schools are integrated, standards 3 
drop. It's unfortunate, but it’s a I 
fact. Look at Zimbabwe. Second. & 
neighbours.” Would she personal- * 
!y mind black or coloured neigh- r 
bouts? “Not at all”, she replies. “If ■ 
a black family could afford to * 
move in next door, I would 
welcome them.” 

I am stnidt'as we talk, by how £ 
vague and shifting her fears are, fa 
and by how typical she is of most S 
whites in ' this respect. At one • S 
moment, she envisages a future 3§ 
social order much like the present § 
one. though without the racial 
laws. Ax other moments, she 


Working logMhen Jon “BohuxT Cocoee, rngby international timed wine-tanner, i, determined to improve labour relations through better working conditions 


seems to have a grimmer picture 
before her eyes: a hand-to-mouth 
existence as an unwelcome guest 
in the land of her birth. It is one of 
the bitterest consequences of the 
decades-long suppression of black 
dissent that ordinary whites now' 
not only have no one with whom 
to imagine negotiating their fu- 
ture. but have not the vaguest idea 
of what blacks might be prepared 
to settle for. 

“Our women are the worst”, 
Kaffie Pretorius remarks. “It is 
because domestic help is so easy to 
get Utter idleness. They get into 
their cars in the morning and drive 
around aimlessly all day. If they 
are the roost conservative, ft is 
because they have the most to 
lose.” . . 

Does she herself have a servant 
and bow have interpersonal rela- 
tions been during the present 
unrest? “Martha is going to have a 
baby soon, which has led us to talk 
to each other more openly. It 
strikes me how hard we find it to 
think our way -into the life our 


servants lead. I wonder bow I 
would feeL, in this awful summer 
beat living in a corrugated steel 
house” 

After lunch, some teenage 
friends of the family stop by. They 
have just written their school- 
leaving examinations. For the 
boys, the choice is whether to 
enrol in university and postpone 
military service or go into the 
army. I ask whether they have any 
doubts about serving in Namibia 
(still called South West Africa by 
most White South .Africans), or 
patrolling South Africa's Black 
townships. No. they reply, one 
must be prepared to make sacri- 
fices for one's country. All the 
same, they are cynical about South 
Africa's occupation of Namibia 
and its professed aims there (to 
protect the right of the territory to 
self-determination). As for the 
strife at home, they agree that 
blacks should be given more 
freedom but then, says one of 
them. Dawid. whites should have 
freedom too. freedom to found a 


state in which they will be their 
own masters. I ask where this state 
should be, thinking he will pro- 
pose some liny spartan colony on 
the Orange River. “The Trans- 
vaal, the Orange Free State, and 
northern Natal”, he replies, nam- 
ing a vast area containing perhaps 
three-quarters of South Africa's 
economic resources. “Our forefa- 
thers shed enough blood for those 
parts of the country to justify our 
claim to them.” 

He speaks the language, arro- 
gantly possessive, of the enduring 
right-wing dream of a national 
homeland where the Afrikaner 
will be left to run his affairs 
without interference, and where 
blacks will face a clear and simple 
choice: to stay on as rightless, 
wage-earning sojourners, or to 
pack their bags and seek theft- 
sal ^ vation elsewhere. 

Dawid's friends shake theft- 
heads and smile. Dearly they 
don’t take him seriously. As for 
Dawid, his face is inscrutable. 
Does he believe in what he says, or 


is he trying to shock me? I know 
the streak of sly humour behind 
the Afrikaner's mask of doumess. 
Is Dawid a joker? “What are your 
ambitions?” I ask him. “To 
qualify as a clinical psychologist 
and then go into a career in 
politics”* he replies. 

“I travel widely. 1 talk to many 
people” says Michiei le Roux. “I 
would say that, down to the 
smallest town in South Africa, 
there is a perception that things 
have changed, totally and drasti- 
cally; 1935 has left a mark on 
everyone. There is an awareness 
that the country is in a crisis, and 
this cuts across boundaries of age, 
class, language. 

“No one thinks we need only 
take a few deep breaths for things 
to go back to normal, as they did 
in 1977”, he says, referring to the 
1976-77 uprisings in Soweto that 
shook the country for 18 months. 
“For this reason it has become 
possible for a strong leader to take 
South Africa in a direction that 
would have been unthinkable in 
1984. Anything is thinkable in 
1986. provided that the leadership 
is strong enough.” 


L e Roux, a graduate in 
law, is at the age of 36 
an executive in a Stel- 
lenboscb-based liquor 
company. We meet in 
his spacious office 
overlooking a courtyard in which 
stands an disused wooden wine- 
press, tall as a house. 

Does .the strong leadership he 
refers to exist? “No, clearly it 
doesn't. President Botha gave 
strong leadership — stronger than 
one expected -up to a certain 
point. Then he faltered. The issue 
over which he faltered was resi- 
dential segregation. The feeling 
that we are directionless is wide- 
spread. People have no feeling of 
being on the road to anywhere.” 

If the last year has been a year of 
crisis, how has the crisis manifest- 
ed itself in this quiet, civilized 
town with its oak-lined streets and 
painstakingly restored 18th-centu- 
ry houses? Race relations are 
good, or seem to be, Michiei 
replies. He is conscious of no 
hostility when he visits coloured 
areas, calls for a boycott of white 


-si 


Good neighbour: Kaffie Pretorius would welcome a black family next door - if they could afford it 


business have met with little 
success. Yet, he concedes, it is 
quite possible that be is deluded. A 
coloured school principal warned 
him of a “tremendous level of 
aggression” just beneath the sur- 
face. What more can he say? One 
can report only what one sees. 

Where we go from here neither 
of us is sure. I remember the 
soldiers I passed on the highway, 
the smoke over the shanty towns. 
Which is the true face of South 
Africa — Crossroads, burning, or 
Stellenbosch, on the surface so 
placid? Months ago. 1 remember, 
on a quiet Sunday afternoon, I 
cycled through this town. 
"Amandin! (Power!)”, shouted a 
■ voice behind me. I glanced 
around. A man. not black, but 
coloured, waved a fist at me from 
the pavement. "AmandtaT he 
shouted again, in case I had 
misunderstood him. Was his the 
true hidden face of Stellenbosch? 

We talk about foreign slerotypes 
of the Afrikaner. Michiei shrugs 
them off. “Stereotypes are always 
a generation out of date — that is 
their nature.” Would he regard 
himself as a representative mod- 
em Afrikaner? “It is curious how a 
society changes", he replies. “It is 
like a child growing; day by day 
you see no difference, then all of a 
sudden the child is grown up. For 
Afrikaners of my generation, born 
after 1948, the old issues have 
never really had relevance. It is a 
question of self-confidence. The 
Afrikaner's language is no longer 
threatened- He rules the land. The 
things that matter to him today are 
the same things that matter to an 
American, and Englishman, a 
German: his children, his job. his 
salary, his car. bis holiday. He has 
been absorbed into a cultural 
pattern that is basically American. 

“If you ask me to put my finger 
on anything that is different from 
a political point of view about the 
Afrikaner I would say it is simply 
that he tends to be 20 or 30 years 
behind the times. Take racial 
discrimination. Before World War

of life all over the West. The West 
came to realize that it was wrong. 
Now it is gradually becoming 
accepted here that you don't judge

Railway line that ran out ol steam 


As a large-scale 
inquiry into British 
Rail’s threat to close 
the Settle-Carlise line 
gets under way, 
Richard North 
reports on the battle 

In the week before the hearing that 
will decide its future, traffic was 
brisk on one of England's most 
beautiful railway lines. 

The Misses Temple, weeded 
enthusiasts, their feet comfortably 
nestled on newspaper on the 
opposite seat were headed for 
Batty Wife Moss Viaduct (rechris- 
tened during its making The 
R/bblehead Viaduct), on the Set- 
tle-Carl isle line: they were going to 
Leeds. 

We had been passing high 
moorland with the mountains of 
the Lake District to the west and 
the North Pennines to the east. 
Snow was braving it out wherever 
the lie of land gave it shadowy 
sanctuary. Wherever the terrain 
was too bleak for the spring lambs, 
there were walkers. 

“We came on this train to see 
the Liverpool garden festival" 
said Kathleen Temple. "There 
were primroses and cowslips all 
the way: it was lovely." Her sister 
Nancy 'leant forward to insist that 
surely the chief glory must be the 
Appleby Horse fair, “The gypsies 
come to town, from everywhere. 
They have races in the street". 

Appleby is bang in the middle of 
the line, and may see its last train 
next year when — if — British Rail 
succeeds in closing this monu- 
ment to capitalism, tenacity (hun- 
dreds of deaths occurred among 
the 6.000 navvies who camped in 
shanties during its making), and 
engineering genius. It is at 
Appleby that the Transport Users 
Consuitarive Com mi nee hearings 
into the closure plans began last 
week. 

The line was a typical creation 
of the high railway building period 
(it was opened in 1876) in which 
companies battled with each other 
for routes. It had been proposed as 
an alternative route from the 
northern cities to Scotland, more 
as a way of persuading the 
Midland Railway's competitors to 
allow better access to their track 
than as a serious venture. Parlia- 
ment would not let the company 
back down from its plans when the 
bluff succeeded in its original 
aims.

Drag, as it is called, triumphantly 
hauls its way into the hills and on 
the way includes 325 bridges. 21 


viaductsand 14 tunnels. The jewel 
in its crown is the Ribolehead 
Viaduct: 104 feet high. 440 yards 
long, its 24 arches make it the 
York Minster of the piece. It needs 
a lot of money spent on it 
The line is part of the extensive 
"Provincial" (non-Inier City) net- 
work of BR. which includes some 
wonderfully lovely lines in Scot- 
land. the Cumbrian coast Wales 
and East Anglia. Enthusiasts 
dream of a day when they consti- 
tute a secondary network of scenic 
routes, timed and promoted as a 
prime tourist attraction for rich 
tourists and walkers, that vast 
army of car-weary* Green Tourists 
which the Countryside Commis- 
sion has identified as an enormous 
growth point in the British 
economy. 




THE SALESMAN 

Ron Cotton is the BK official over- 
seeing the closure. As the man who 
spearheaded BR’s Inter City Sav- 
ers, which are largely credited with 
its s accessful expansion of busi- 
ness in the face of deregulated 
coach competition, be is a past- 
master of marketing. 

Under his management, the 
Settle-CaHisle line has seen a 
spectacular growth In business: 
traffic has doubled in the last three 
yeans, and it now covers its day-to- 
day costs, and thus outperforms 
the average for the rest of the 
"Provincial*' network, in which 
trains more normally cover half 
their direct costs. “Two for the 
price of one" deals, and even a Live 
Aid month, have brought the line 
many fans. 

“The problem is that the line 
needs an injection of capital, and 
needs it now”, he says. “Over the 
next decade or two, it needs capital 
expenditure of perhaps £13 mil- 
lion. More immediately, we cer- 
tainly need something like £5 
million in the next three years, of 
which The Ribblehead Viaduct 
alone needs between £2.6 and £3 
million to keep it going for 15 
years or so." 

BR is expected to ran its rural 
lines as a social service, under 
Public Service Obligation arrange- 
ments which allow it subsidy on 
routes where no profit is expected. 
It has been getting rather more 
imaginative in its management and 
marketing of some scenic routes, 
and a package of improvements for 
such routes (of the kind already 
announced for the Central Wales 



Marketing wizard: Ron Cotton 

line) is doe in the next month. It 
has found that tourist-consdoos 
local authorities wQl often co- 
operate in funding fines, (rat the 
sheer scale of capital req aired for 
Settl e-Carlisle seems to have 
dannted BR. 

The formal consultation process 
for dosing lines hinges on TUCC 
hearings, and these are supposed 
to focus on social hardship, not 
tourist potential. 


THE INNOVATOR 

Colin Speakman is the ex-teacher 
who devised Dales Rail, a co- 
ordinated rail-and-bus network 
which since 1974 has brought 
thousands of people to the region 
during the summer months using 
the Setile-Cariisle line and special- 
ly and temporarily reopened sta- 
tions along its length. 

“The collapse of bus services in 
this region has made the train 
even more important; but it's 
tourism which can provide the 
growth point, with local people 
getting the benefit of investment 
intended to develop ft. You know, 
it's not the wealth in steel track 
that matters. It's ideas. It's entre- 
preneurship that will save this line 
and others like it". 

As a pioneer of new public 
transport techniques, he worked 
for a time with the Yorkshire 
Dales National Park and then 
moved to the West Yorkshire

THE TOURIST BOARD 

“There has been a teg increase in 
the use of beautiful fines by firms 
ramring glamorous trains", says 
Haydn Morris, development man- 
ager for Cambria Tourist Bond. 
“We've already seen the Trade 
and Industry Committee of the 
’House of Commons saying tow- 
ism accounts for over half of all 
national spending on transport 
and that maybe 15 per cent of 
foreign tourists travel. by train at 
some time daring their stay. 

“They said that BR needed 
separate finding for tourist devel- 
opment. They also said this: 
•Providing for tourism is not an 
optional extra for the railways-*" 


THE AUTHORITIES GOVERNMENT ROLE 


THE SETTLE CARLISLE JOINT ACTION GROUP 


The Settle Carlisle Joint Action 
Committee has amassed an im- 
pressive body of enthusiasm and 
economic analysis around its case 
to keep the line. "There are young 
people leaving school today who 
have never been on a train", Peter 
Horton, its secretary, says. “I'd 
like to get them here and show 
them this line. They'll be voting 
on transport issues soon. It's 
remarkable the way the whole of 
northern society is fighting for this 
line. We have MPs of all parties 
fighting tooth and nail for ft." 



Campaign fighter Peter Horton 


Several people are already making 
plans in the hope that the closure 
doesn't happen. One such body is 
Cumbria comity conncO. whose 
transport planner Peter Robinson 
says: “We think we hare a 
workable solution to part of the 
public transport problem for the 
region". 

He is hopeful that the local 
authorities can bring off a scheme 
first mooted by Eden district 
council and dob together to give 
BR a contract to rut commuter 
stopping trains to stations between 
Skipton and Carlisle, some of 
which have been opened only 
occasionally since the early 1970s, 
and some not at an. 

BR hare said they would nm the 
service for £150,000. Local au- 
thorities would keep any profit 


When the TUCCs report is in, 
transport minister Nicholas Rid- 
ley will publish a decision letter 
which may be the first chance the 
objectors to closure wilt have to 
examine BR’s financial case. But 
the derision will not be made 
merely on the narrow “social 
need"crittftia: it wifi take account 
of BR's wider obligation to tour- 
ism and the national heritage. 

Lord Young at the Department 
of Employment leads the 
Government's tourism brief, 
shared with Trade and Industry. 
He has already declared his con- 
viction that railways and tourism 
go hand . in .hand. . With the 
Deportment of the Environment it 
is believed that they could co- 
ordinate government and private 
sector capitalization of the line.

If Afrikaners have been swal- 
lowed into an American life style, 
is the same future in store for 
blacks? "The black man is op- 
pressed in his own country. That is 
why, at the moment, ft is impor- 
tant for him to assert his own 
culture - black an. black writing, 
black theatre. But the American 
cultural current is very strong. 
Ultimately, black theatre doesn't 
stand a chance against Dallas, ft is 
Dallas that blacks will prefer to 
watch. 

“ft is striking what a hold 
western values have taken among 
blacks, values like freedom of 
choice, freedom of speech, free- 
dom of assembly. Who knows, 
perhaps blacks will guard these 
values all the more jealously 
because they have been denied 
them so long. On the other hand, if 
black liberation comes only after a 
long military struggle, we may 
have a military cast of mind 
imposed over everthing — mili- 
tary discipline, military organiza- 
tion — as in so many other 
African countries. It is a matter of 
how the transition takes place." 



M y next stop is at 
the farm of Jan 
“Boland” 
Coetzee, the for- 
mer Springbok 
rugby interna- 
tional. Whether Jan Boland has 
heard of me I doubt: he is not 
much of a novel-reading man. But 
I have seen him play rugby scores 
of times, and can make a fair guess 
at his approach to life: hard work, 
no nonsense. We quickly compare 
genealogies and establish that, like 
so many Afrikaners, we are proba- 
bly distant relations. 

For our interview he conducts 
me into the cavernous cellars of 
his wine-farm. In a subterranean 
hush, we sit down to talk. 

How is apartheid faring in the 
countryside, I ask." Apartheid has 
never been a word in my book", 
he replies.lt was only when he left 
the farm where he grew up that he 
first experienced it. For a while he 
muses: "Apartheid has created a 
gulf between people. We no longer 
know each other. Also, we whites 
have simply appropriated things 
for ourselves, leaving the blacks 
and coloureds to do the produc- 
ing. ft is not just. It is not a healthy 
state of affairs." 

He is not, strictly speaking, 
answering my question, and 
knows h. 1 understand titedifficul- 
*y he is having. Like me he was 
born in the twilight of a centuries- 
old feudal order in which the

cal solutions. As long as the 
politicians (and perhaps the police 
too) will leave us alone, Coetzee 
seems to be saying, we country 
folk can find ways to live harmo- 
niously together. 

In much of the talk rife among 
more progressive whites today, 
the same spirit is to be detected: 
loss of faith in large-scale national 
policies, impatience with red tape, 
readiness for ad hoc approaches to 
local problems. The irony is that 
this is precisely the moment in 
history when Mack South Africans 
are grouping together in larger and 
larger political blocs and black 
leaders prepared to limit discus- 
sion to merely local issues are 
proving harder and harder to find. 

Only the darkest cynic would 
claim that the effort Jan Boland 
Coetzee and his wife have put into 
the social upliftment of their 
work-force has not been sincerely 
intended. While their workers are 
well-housed, the Coetzees them- 
selves live in a cramped bungalow 
— renovation of the old farm- 
stead is barely underway. Never- 
theless, looking towards the 
future, one may ask whether 
marriage will ever be possible 
between the kind of enlightened 
paternalism they stand for and the 
egalitarian black nationalism 
sweeping across the land. 

When 1 ask Jan Boland what he 
thinks the effect will be on this 
part of the country, once restric- 
tions on black mobility (^influx 
control") have been lifted, he is 
dismissive: “There is no tradition 
of blacks living in the Western 
Cape", he says. True, but only 
because the law has been brought 
to bear to keep blacks out. 

Can Jan Boland imagine cir- 
cumstances that would make him 
quit South Africa? Vehemently, he 
shakes his head. “Never. I stay. I 
have enough faith in my country- 
men, black, white and coloured to 
believe we can work out a solu- 
tion. I can't believe that South 
■Africans are such bad people as 
the Americans and the rest say." 
He tells a story of how, while 
touring France with the Spring- 
boks, he found himself in a bus 
with some American tourists. 
“They asked us what language we 
were speaking and we told them it 
was Afrikaans. They had never 
heard of such a language, they 
didn't even know there were such 
people as Afrikaners. Well, now 
they know. What f mean to say is 
rather be proud of your lan g ua ge 
than your skin colour. As for the 
norms of the so-called civilized 
world we will live those norms, 
not just talk about them." 





much. But families don't break up 
over questions of politics- We 
have ways of living with our 
differences.” 

I think of the poet Breyten 
Breytenbach and his brother, an 
officer in the security forces, who 
do not speak to each other, of the 
many friendships I have seen 
break up under the stresses of the 
past year. Is it uncharitable to 
think that Lydia and her brother 
do not yet disagree enough? 

Have her verfig leanings brought 
her into conflict with other Afrika- 
ners? No, she replies, but die finds 
she has lost respea-for colleagues 
who are absolutely unsympathetic 
to black aspirations, "within my- 
self I ■ doubt their integrity." 
Opregiheid - uprightness, integri- 
ty - is a keyword for her. It 
measures tire distance . between 
professed Christian faith and day- 
to-day practice. Her parents have 
worked all their lives in the 
Mission Church, the branch of the 
Dutch Reformed Church that 
ministers to coloured people. She 
is a regular church-goer, and on 
Thursday evenings runs needle- 
work cusses for black domestic 
servants. “We must each do our 
bit", she says. 

At school, among the teenagers 
she teaches, she encounters little 
spirit of conciliation: “They talk 
only of shooting the 
troublemakers", she says. “It hurts 
me, that kind of talk. They pick it

Lydia Roos is a domestic sci- 
ence teacher in a high school. We 
meet in her home in an unpreten- 
tious white suburb of Cape Town. 
The schools have just closed for 
the summer holidays. It has been a 
hard year. We all ache for relief. 
But the end is not in right

"We are going to have to make 
sacrifices", she says. "Prices are 
rising all the time. Yet if high 
prices mean that farm workers will 
atlasi get a good wage, maybe it's 
a good thing." 

A drop in living standards: will 
that be the extent of white 
sacrifice? What of social apart- 
heid? Is she prepared to see the 
neighbourhood opened up?. There 
is no hesitation in her reply: 
"Absolutely. Coloureds, blacks: if. 
they can afford it let them come 
and live here," 

Her readiness to jettison the 
Group Areas Act which enforces 
segregation of bousing, marks 
Lydia as, in her word, verlig, 
enlightened. Her vision of the 


future, she says, is of a South 
Africa in which there wffl be many 
tribes, white and 'black, none in a 
position of dominance, e ach 
maintaining its ' own cultural 
identity. 

“We will keep our boerekos, our 
Afrikaner dishes, just as the 
Indians have kept their curry." 

I am dubious. Is the struggle in. 
South Africa not about more than 
the preservation of national cui- 
sines? What of the realities of 
power? 

"I* think we will end up with a 
federal system", .she says.' “Proy-

and a national ‘government over 
them. The Western Cape should 
be one province, with Chpe Town 
as its capital. I don't know about 
the 'Eastern - Cape — that, is a 
matter for the blacks." 

Will whites elsewhere in the 
. country, living in the midst of yast 
black majorities, not see her 
prescription as a form of smug 
isolationalism that only the West- 
ern Cape, with its small black 
African population, can afford?

I The Guinness offer for Distillers has now been cleared by the Secretary 
♦ of State for Trade and Industry 


2 The Guinness best offer is worth 713p per Distillers share. The Argyll 
♦ best and final offer is worth 697p per Distillers share. The Guinness 
_ _ offer is better by 16p. • 

3 Guinness and Distillers will form an enterprise of world scale, in terms of 
♦ both its size and its activities. It will be one of the 15 largest companies 
in Britain and one of the top 70 in the world. 

With a market value of over £3 billion it will be worth more than 1% 
of all the U.K. companies quoted on the stock market 

4 The current Guinness management team has a proven track record in 
♦turning around a drinks business and establishing sustained growth. 

In the last four years earnings per share have risen by 169%, dividends 
have risen by 47% and the share price has shown an almost six-fold increase. 

5 Like Guinness, the core assets of the Distillers company are its 
l premium international brands. 

As a result the Guinness management team is uniquely equipped 
to rationalise, manage and build Distillers business around the world. 

We recommend acceptance of the Guinness offer by Distillers 
shareholders.

There's a lot of talk about the new Apricot XEN. r— 

Experts, normally restrained in their praise, are 
becoming unusually enthusiastic. 

Phrases like "in a league of its own" and 
‘incredible value for money" are being used. • . 

So whv is Apricot XEN so special? 

Because of its astonishing performance, for one 
thing. Apricot XEN has come out on top in every 
test so far. In an article measuring computer power, 
the Guardian decided that something called 
“processor memory bandwidth" was the most 
accurate yardstick. Naturally, Apricot XEN achieved 
the highest score, even beating one of the leading 
mi recompute r systems to the mark. 

And when you look at XEN’s storage capabilities, 
it’s clear that they are just as impressive as its 
processing power. 

XEN s disk drives have broken all the benchmark 
records too. So whether its the XEN FD with twin 
720K floppy drives, or the XEN HD with a 20 
Megabyte hard disk, a XEN won’t keep you waiting. 

And if, as the gentleman of the press say. the 
XEN floppy disks are faster than the IBM hard disk. I. 

just imagine what our hard disks can do. . — — — 

But what has really , 

caught the imagination of 
the computer industiy is 
how little this powerful ,t 

machine costs. .)

Why a little-known Victorian fantasy gard en is in danger of disappearing for good 


tP 


Rock’s tomboy turns cowgirl 


When Suzi Quatro opens next 
month in tbe title role of 
Annie Get Your Gun at the 
Chichester Festival Thearre, it 
will be the culmination of a 
lifetime’s unwitting prepara- 
tion for the part. Ever since 
the world’s greatest woman 
rock singer first learned at 
school about the world’s great- 
est woman rifle shot, she knew 
they were two of a kind. 

“Annie Oakley’s character 
is exactly tbe same as mine”, 
drawls 35-year-okl Stud, “like 
me she was a tomboy who 
played with guns, a woman in 
a man’s world. She was a. 
plucky little girl with a very 
soft streak — definitely a 
survivor." 

The feet that she will be 
taking on the classic Irving 
Berlin role created on Broad- 
way by the legendary Ethel 
Merman without ever having 
learnt to act worries her not. 

"Life has been my teacher”, 
she scoffs, as Annie, herself 
might. “Be trim nobody’s done 
Quite as much living as me, 
neither. I've been on the road 
for 22 years. If you can't learn 
in that time you ain’t ever 
goin’ to learn anything." 

Besides, she has acted be- 
fore — 15 episodes as tbe 
scruffy reform school gradu- 
ate, Leather Tuscadero, in 
television’s Happy Days, and 
guest appearances in Minder 
and Dempsey and Makepeace, 
“I love it” Suzi s^ys. “It’s all 
the same Thing to me, all 
entertaining. T use the same 
method as I do when I'm 
singing. I jest go for tL” 

It has proved a successful 

formula for the Detroit-born 
anger who roared to feme 
with her raunchy black leather 
image and rasping motor- 
cycle music at the beginning of 

the Seventies. 

Her Italian father, an execu- 
tive with General Motors, had 
his own band mid Sun studied . 
classical piano and drums as ' 
'well as teaching herself the 


bass guitar. “We were one of 
those families who would get 
pp at every gathering and not 
just do a hu, bat do it in fill! 
costume like a proper show.” 
Her flapper girl rendering of 
Five Foot Two with her youn- 
ger sister Nancy used to bring 
the house down. 

At the age of seven she 
landed her first professional 
. gig playing tbe bongo drums in 
' her fefoers band. By the time 
she was 14 she and her two 
elder sisters had their own 
group, Suzi Soul and the 
Pleasure Seekers. A year later 
she left school to tour with the 
band full time with her 
parents' reluctant Messing. 

. The . all-girl band was in 
great demand, but even in 
those early days it was Suzi 
out in front, always looking a 
bit different in top hat or 
leather jacket over the mini 


Suzi Quatro 
talks about her 
first major 
acting role, as 
Annie Oakley 

skirts the club owners de- 
manded and she despised. “I 
was the one the people were 
always clapping for”, she re- 
calls. “The audience soon 
chooses who's going to be the 
face in any group.” 

It was an opinion shared by 
Mickie Most, the London- 
based record producer, when 
he saw- the girls in action but 
he waited until the band split 
up before flying Suzi over to 
Britain to an album in 
1971. 


Today. Suzi lives with her 
husband, Len Tuckey, and 
their two small children in a 
1 6th-ceniury country mansion 
in Essex which they first saw 
advertised in Country Life. 
She met Len. a builder’s son 
from Romford and a former 
Essex boxing champion, when 
be auditioned for her band in 
November 1972. 

• Her first chart topper, “Can 
The Can", was released in 
April 1973. “We celebrated by 
doing Top of the Pops followed 
by a gig and then I think 
Lenny and 1 got drunk in our 
bedsit-" 

Suzi believes her obsession 
with performing is an extend- 
ed cry for attention. “1 always 
felt neglected as a child, 
although I wasn't. I always 
wanted more attention than I 
got.” 

The- panelled walls of her 
beamed nine-bedroomed 


-4 


home are lined with the gold, 
silver and platinum discs she 
has earned over the years. Of 
her 16 hit records, two reached 
No 1 and she has sold around 
40 million worldwide. “I still 
shout out of the window when 
one of my records is on tbe 
radio.” 

She always knew she would 
be a success but insists that she 
is still the same mischievous, 
happy-go-lucky tomboy she 
has always been, “up at the bar 
with the boys wherever we 
are". She can still “knock back 
the whisky if 1 want to” 
although she seldom does 
these days. “There’s no joy in 
being with your kids if you've 
got a horrible hangover.” 

Even so, she and Lenny are 
regular customers at their 
village pub and when Suzi's 
parents came to stay recently 
her father astounded the locals 
by thrashing them at snooker. 
It was Poppa Quatro who 
taught Suzi how to pot a black 
as well and play a mean hand 
of poker. Her Hungarian 
mother was responsible for the 
good old-fashioned Catholic 
values which Suzi intends to 
pass on to her own children. 

So what about the raunchy 
image that she has always 
personified? “Raunchy’s got 
to do with the music", die 
insists. “It doesn't mean 
you're everybody’s piece of 
meaL That's why rock'n’roll is 
such a healthy outlet — it's not 
saying you're going to have 
orgies afterwards. The music 
moves you — you don't move 
iL ” 

She still does at least one 
major tour a year — “I'd die if 
1 couldn't go on the road.” — 
and these days her original 
fans bring their children along 
as welLShe sees no reason why 
she should not still be rocking 
at 65. “If you fed awkward, 
it's time to finish. But I 
haven't felt that yeL”

Britain’s archaeological sites are 
threatened- David l^ovibond explains 
how the gifted amateur can help 


In tbe years before the Great 
War “harrow di g gin g " was a 
popular entertainment with 
weekend house parties. Ar- 
chaeology was, like cricket, a 
pursuit for gentlemen ama- 
teurs — the professionals were 
the navvies who did all the 
heavy work. But the past 20 or 
30 years have seen a rapid 
decline in tbe amateur role. 

Excavation has entailed in- 
creasingly complex and expen- 
sive techniques that have 
made tbe ascendancy of the 
professional archaeologist in- 
evitable. Sadly though, many 
archaeologists appear reluc- 
tant to allow amateurs even a 
supporting role. Bryn Walters, 
the Executive Director of the 
Roman Research Trust at 
Liftiecote in Wiltshire, says: 
“There is a fear that amateurs 
wHl lose a lot of evidence they 
are incapable of recognizing.” 

There is, however, consider- 
able evidence that professional 
archaeologists lack both the 


‘Appalling 

destruction’ 


manpower and the strategy to 
deal with tbe growing threat to 
England's archaeology. En- 
glish Heritage, the 
government's statutory advis- 
ers on archaeology, has esti- 
mated that England has 
aronnd 600,000 archaeological 
“items”, only about 2 per cent 
of them scheduled as ancient 
monuments — that is, regard- 
ed by English Heritage as 
meriting state protection. And 
although English Heritage an- 
nounced this month a “sched- 
uling enhancement 

programme” which aims to 
increase the figure to 10 per 
cent, scheduling is no guaran- 
tee of a site’s survival. In 
theory a farmer or developer 
most receive permission from 
the Department of the Envi- 
ronment before doing anything 
likely to affect a scheduled 
monument. If he goes ahead 
regardless he is liable to 
prosecution: bat according to 
Dai Morgan-Evans, an inspec- 
tor of ancient monuments for 
English Heritage, “a convic- 
tion is very difficult to achieve, 
it being necessary to prove the 
fanner knew he was damaging 
a protected monument". 

Dorset and Wiltshire have 
been described as "the heart- 
land of British archaeology" 
and it is in these two comities 
that the devastating effect of 
intensive farming on ancient 
landscapes has been most 
apparent. Wiltshire has about 
13,500 archaeological items of 
which 1,500 are currently 
scheduled. The county’s Li- 
brary and Museum Service 
estimates that only half the 
scheduled monuments have 
been properly surveyed, and 
up to 20 per cent have either 
been destroyed or seriously 
damaged. Examples include 
the North Down barrow group; 
at Beckhampton. Barbery hill- 


fort, and the Saxon defences at 
Crirklade. 

In Dorset the archaeology 
is in a state of crisis. Roger 
Peers. Curator of the Dorset 
County Museum, comments; 
"In the past 30 years 1 have 
seen the most appalling de- 
struction of sites, including 
scheduled monuments like the 
Broadmayne - Long Bredy 
barrow group and the Celtic 
sites in the Piddle Valley.” 
Other major losses include the 
neolithic camps on 
H ambled on Hill and the Lite-' 
riors of nearly all the hill-forts 

Throughout England tbe 
picture is much tbe same: the 
great and humble remains of 
the past endangered by urban 
development, mineral extrac- 
tion and intensive agriculture. 
As Mr Morgan-Evans makes 
clear, excavation is irresistible 
for many archaeologists. “It is 
infuriating that so many pro- 
fessional archaeologists are 
preoccupied by rescue excava- 
tion (digging sites in advance 
of destruction) and seem on- 
willing to become involved in 
the management of sites.” Site 
management, according to Mr 
Morgan-Evans, includes “the 
control of stock levels to avoid 
erosion, vermin control and 
scrub clearance”. 

As well as managing indi- 
vidual sites Jan Wills, the 
Gloucester County County Ar- 
chaeologist, believes “archae- 
ologists should put far greater 
effort into preserving archaeo- 
logical landscapes and educat- 
ing farmers as to the 
importance of doing so”. Peter 
Marsden, an archaeologist 
with tbe Museum of London, 
also thinks that “much more 
work has to be pnt into the 
survey and interpretation of 
tbe many thousands of ordi- 
nary sites about which very 
little is presently known”. 

The Hampshire County 
Council has introduced a 
scheme which other comities 


‘Infuriating 

professionals’ 

might consider “countryside 
heritage sites” are moamnents 
of considerable local impor- 
tance bat are not scheduled. 
As such they have no statutory 
protection but Malcolm Oake. 
an archaeologist with the 
Comity Council, feels “the 
designation publicizes the vai- 
ae of the sites and helps to 
gain tbe landowner’s co- 
operation". 

Most of these strategies are 
only feasible with the help of 
amateurs. As Mr Hugh Sey- 
mour, President of tbe Wilt- 
shire Archaeological and 
Natural History Society, says, 
"It is vital that the main 
professional effort is aimed at 
seeming a comprehensive 
record of England’s vanishing 
archaeology. This grand 
endeavour calls for a revival of 
the role of the talented ama- 
teur archaeologist”. 


Egyptian style: the tunnel, gnarded by sphinx*, leads to the gnmnd floor of an ornate cotoge, part of the extraordinary Staffordshire garden created by James Bateman in 1842 


I n 1 842 James Bateman, son of 
a wealthy engineer and bank- 
er, acquired a farmhouse sur- 
rounded by swampy fields on 
the edge of inhospitable 
Biddulph Moor, in north Staf- 
fordshire. Within a few years lie had 
built himself a magnificent ltalianate 
mansion, Biddulph Grange. Within 
the aid of a friend, Edward Cooke, 
marine painter and garden designer, 
he then created an extraordinary 
pleasure garden covering 1 5 acres. 

So bizarre was the garden that in 
its day it attracted considerable 
attention. Six articles describing its 
rich and imaginative fantasy ap- 
peared in The Gardener’s Chronicle 
in 1856 followed by five in 1862. 

Today only a handful of people 
know tbe garden. Biddulph Grange 
remained in private hands until 
1922, when it became a hospital. 
Now the estate is .tojbe sold and its- 
very existence is under threat: The- 
West Midlands Regional Health 
Authority, which has done its best to 
maintain the spirit of the garden in 
the face of mounting vandalism and 
the inevitable effects of time, has . 
closed the hospital, putting both the 
buildings and gardens on the market 
Bids are in and if tbe remnants of 
this historically important garden 
are not to be swept away we most all 
hope that die successfiil offer is that 
from the National Trust,; which 
considers that Biddulph Grange 
possesses the best surviving example 
of a mid-Victorian gnrden. It is 
certainly a garden of great diversity 
and of immense fan, with many 
secret enclosures. The trust doubts 
v* ether any other owner would have 
the resources or interest to restore h. 

When Bateman started the garden 
he imported tons of earth and rode 


ise that may be lost 


which he used to create miniature 
hills and dales with long, serpentine 
ridges. He planted this tiny con- 
tained landscape with conifers and 
deciduous trees which sheltered 
great belts of rhododendrons. He 
created a grassy terrace flanked by 
yew hedges in front of the bouse, 
dropping to a small lake. But it is 


beyond this lake that the true theatre 
of Bateman’s garden can be found. 

Lost within what has now become 
a mutinous growth of trees, *a 
network of narrow paths leads 
between rocky outcrops to the 
Chinese garden. Here, beyond a 
scaled-down -Wall of Chinji — com- 
plete with watchtower — Bate man 


built a temple on the edge of a small 
pool, over which he constructed a 
small hump-backed bridge. Up- 
ended in the water he placed two 
huge pieces of rock and to the side he 
made a courtyard overlooked by a 
great red sculpted ball. The whole set 
piece is stumbled upon quite by 
chance and the effect is star tling . 


Chlaa style: Bateman’s replica of a Chinese temple. Nearby is a scaled-down model of the Great Wall 


Worlds away in style though only 
yards away in reality is the Egyptian 
court sculpted from ancient yews 
and guarded by four souebant 
sphinxes. The entrance becomes a 
tunnel which leads to the ground 
floor of a tiny ornate cottage. Tucked 
in a gloomy antechamber is a squat 
stone figure whose only function is to 
frighten and surprise the visitor. The 
cottage opens on to a pinetum and 
curving path which leads off to 
another dark tunnel. 

Alongside the Egyptian court is the 
mile long walk, leading away from 
the house as straight as a die. This 
narrow path is encroached upon by 
solid buttresses of yew and eventual- 
ly opens into a small rondel which 
bouses a vast stone urn which stands 
a good 10ft high. On all sides visual 
puns can be found while at no point 
within the garden can the whole be 
taken in at a glance. 

All ihis survives today, if a little 
worse for wear. Much of the delicate 
woodwork has gone from the Chi- 
nese garden and much of the massive 
stonework has moved. The stone 
lintels in Egypt may have cracked 
and the cottage become a slum. But 
the essence of Bateman’s garden is 
still there, bloated and mature, and 
could quickly be restored and 
savedLThe National Trust is ready to 
do this. But it is, a spokesman says, 
very much on tenterhooks until 
April 16. On that dale the successful 
bid will be announced. If the 
National Trust is chosen an immedi- 
ate appeal will be launched and 
renovation work begun. Guided 
tours of the garden, which is unique 
in this country, will be available 
from early this summer.

A SPECIAL REPORT ON 

KENT UNIVERSITY/1 

An Oxbridge 
dream works 
for the future 

Kent is one of Britain’s younger universities, set above the 
nation’s most ancient cathedral city: Its inspiration was the 
collegiate model of Oxford Now it is reaching into space 


The University of Kent is a 
love-child of the British aca- 
demic system. Its curriculum 
was dreamt up in die common 
rooms of Oxford and Dur- 
ham; its academic regulations 
were lifted from the stem 
ordinances of the University 
of Birmingham: its first vice- 
chancellor, Geoffrey Mr 
Temple man. was himself reg- 
istrar of Birmingham. 

To the green-field site out- 
side Canterbury that became 
the Kent campus, he carried 
some of the verities of the 
civic university. 

The Kent worthies who in 
the early 1960s pressed the 
government to locate a uni- 
versity in the county had in 
mind a high-toned institution 
to complement the cathedral 
that overlooks the city of 
Canterbury. 

There was to be no engi- 
neering. no heavy science; 
some but not too much inno- 
vation in the content of de- 
grees; above all the kind of 
academic respectability that 
follows from the presence on 
campus in the early days of 
Oxbridge. 

Mr Templeman and his co- 
founders wanted to create a 
modern Oxford. There were to 
be colleges, high tables, tutori- 
als; it was to be no 9-to-S 
institution but a community 
in which the lights burnt late 
into the night on seminars and 
social events; staff and stu- 
dents were to be close, the 
pastoral role of the former 
being emphasized, but only 
within a context of academic 
discipline. 

Mr Templeman's ideal was 
costly. Like the other “new 
universities" of the mid- 
1960s, Kent had to scale down 
Its pretensions rapidly. Twen- 
ty years on — Kent received its 
royal charter in 1965 — its 
senate has to grapple with the 
consequences of its arts-and- 
sotiaJ studies bias at a time 
when the Government wants a 
shift of students in science and 
technology and when industri- 


al-research money is difficult 
to obtain. 

Mr Templeman. vice-chan- 
cellor for IS years, personified 
the older academic style, diffi- 
dent and haughty, unwilling to 
campaign on behalf of the 
university among fund-raisers 
and grant-givers. 

Kent has virtually no en- 
dowment; it relies exclusively 
on UGC money, tuition fees 
and the income it gets for 
research. Unlike the medieval 
cathedral it was meant to 
complement, it had no proper 
independence of the state. 

Many of Kent's academic 
staff have been in post for 
years. Canterbury and its en- 
virons is an attractive place to 
live; London is only an hour 
and 20 minutes away by train. 
People stay put. 

As recent years have shown, 
however, Kent professors' 
conservatism about where 
they live has not extended to 
the shape of the university. 

In the later 1960s and early 

* 


tinmans, physicists and, in 
large number, as teachers. 

They have become social 
workers, civil servants and 
computer programmers. Kent 
has attracted a type of person 
who has made good in the 
broadcasting media: there is a 
small Kent mafia in film and 
television. 

Kent graduates have 
apparently successfully ' be- 
come sales people and special- 
ized in marketing. 

In a basic sense, therefore, it 
fulfills the primary public 
purpose of universities: it 
produces employable gradu- 
ates whose market value and 
personal qualities have been 
enhanced by tbeir time spent 
on the Kent campus. 

With a branch of the Na- 
tional Film Theatre and a 
Gulbenkian Theatre on site, 
culture is served. 

Mr Templeraan's ambition 
of an all-day university is not 
fully realized; Kent has its

High afftdflmie aims: Dr David In gram, vice-chancellor of the university 


re- 
turn to digs and fiats in the 
evening; and at weekends the 
campus can feel dead. In 
spring and summer the pla- 
teau above Canterbury on 
which Kent sits - blown by 
cold winds in winter — be- 
comes a green garden making 
for glossy and not-altogether 
misleading colour photo- 
graphs in the brochures by 
which Kent attracts large 
numbers of overseas students. 

Its current income from 
overseas student fees — £2 
million — matches the tuition 
charges it collects from home 
students. 

But the Kent story is not 
unambiguous. Kent is basical- 
ly, in terms of staff and 
student numbers, a liberal arts 
university with useful but 
small components for the 
study of pure physics, chemis- 
try and mathematics. 

It has over the years devel- 
oped applied branches of these 
subjects: in electronics, com- 
puting. biochemistry and ap- 
plied statistics, for example. 
Because Kent had no estab- 
lishment of engineers or tradi- 
tional chemists, these newer 
disciplines had space to grow, 
although the university could 
not afford much expensive 
equipment. 

Now, in the 1980s, biotech- 
nology and computing are the 
subjects of the hour, and Kent 
has put them in the forefront 
of its submissions to the 
University Grants 

Commission. 

Yet perhaps there is a 
sleight of hand. For though 
Kent does exciting work in, 
for example, biochemistry, its 
heart remains in scholarship 


in English, research in agrari- 
an history, the teaching and 
study of foreign languages. It 
is just that in the present 
climate they make a less 
exciting selling point. 

The danger is that Kent may 
undersell its virtues. Work 
such as that by Professor Mark 
Kinkhead-Weekes on D. H. 
Lawrence or by Professor G. 
E. Mingay on the economic 
history of the English country- 
side will never attract com- 
mercial sponsorship, but its 
value as. academic work can- 
not be doubted. 

Kent's broad spread of work 
in the social sicences makes 
for a better marriage of out- 
side support and academic 
virtue. The university has 
done well in attracting grants 
from the Economic and Social 
Research Council and from 
the Government 

The latter has financed the 
growth at Kent of a veritable 
research concentration on so- 
cial policy in the fields of 
health and personal social 
services. 

There is no immediate rea- 
son for Kent to be a centre for 
studying the distribution ot 
grants for city social work. But 
such a result is, in a sense, a 
victory for the liberal 
Templeman conception of the 
university. 

One of the central values 
espoused by the founders was 
freedom of intellectual associ- 
ation among academics, and 
the corollary was freedom for 
their interests to develop in 
whatever direction- they might 
take. 

Yet Kent has tried to build 
in a son of intellectual promis- 
cuity by encouraging cross- 
disciplinary work. Such work 
is evident to some extent in its 
“area studies" — it has a 
concentration of academics 
interested in South-East Asia, 
American and European stud- 
ies. 

Kent is making energetic 
efforts to weather the financial 
storms 1 produced by reduc- 
tions in UGC provision per 
student and centrally-imposed 
limits on student intake (Kent 
is heavily over-subscribed 
each year). 

It is right to emphasize the 
up-to-dateness of its research 
profile. But it would be mis- 
taken for the university to 
sideline its historical 
— solid teaching and 
ship in the liberal arts and 
social sciences — the basis of 
academic values descended 
directly from the Oxbridge 
model.

Dusty encounters of the 
Halley’s Comet kind 


It was a brief encounter. The 
historic rendezvous between 
the spacecraft Giotto, packed 
with monitoring equipment, 
and Halley's Comet that look 
place in mid-March was short. 

The space scientists gath- 
ered in a polyglot team at the 
European Space Observation 
Centre at Darmstadt, West 
Germany; knew that they 
could count on only four 
hours of date transmission as 
Giotto approached Halley's 
nucleus; minutes’ more would 
be a gift from providence, 
although over the six years of 
detailed planning that went 
into the Giotto mission, secu- 
lar scientists across Europe 
had more than once offered 
oblation to whatever gods 
hover over astrophysical lab- 
oratories for the spacecraft to 
survive its meeting with the 
comet for just a while longer 
than planned. 

Among them was Professor 
Tony McDonnell, director of 
the Unit for Space Sciences at 
the University of Kent. With 
the unit's monitoring equip- 
ment standing ready in Can- 
terbury and on site at the 
Darmstadt centre, even four 
hours would be enough for, as 
Professor McDonnell put it, 
“many years of fruitful 
analysis." 

At peak the stream of data 
would be at a rate of 40,000 
“bits" a second, a flow of such 
rich insight to the particles 
which make up the comet's 
nucleus and tail that the past 
months of intense effort will 
be justified. 

Travelling during the past 
year between Britain's large 
infrared telescope in Hawaii 
and the Giotto launch site in 
French Guyana, Professor 
McDonnell has spent a total of 
four weeks inside an 
aeroplane. 

The University of Kent has, 
understandably, not lost time 
to exploit its connection with 
Halley’s Comet There is an 
undeniable Canterbury link; 
the drawing of the fiery comet 
rendered by the monk Ead- 
wine on its appearance in 
1 14S: which appears beneath 
Psalm Five of his Canterbury 
Psalter, illuminated at the 
cathedra] and later lodged at 
Trinity College, Cambridge. 

Professor McDonnell’s in- 
terest in Halley’s Comet is 
neither historical nor person- 
al. He is an expert in the 
composition of solids in space, 
as he puts iL the whole 


interplanetary environment 
excluding plasma or solar 
wind. His unit's forte has 
become the design and con- 
struction of devices, carried 
into space, to determine the 
nature of space “dust”. 

After the encounter Profes- 
sor McDonnell will doubtless 
be under some pressure to 
revise his 700-page Cosmic 
Dust, a record of cumulative 
study of solid particles within 
the solar system, published in 
1978. 

Kent lacks an observatory. 
Indeed it lacks expensive 
equipment of most kinds. 
That it has a name in the space 
science rankings is because of 
the efforts of Professor Mc- 
Donnell and colleagues over a 
number of years to build 
reputation and expertise; 
Kent’s contribution has been 
to provide 'ah environment in 
which this branch of astro- 
physics could prosper, albeit 
dependent on American shut- 
tles, French rockets and the 
resources of the Rutherford 
Appleton Laboratory in 
Oxfordshire. 

It recently recognized Pro- 
fessor McDonnell's achieve- 
ment of international standing 
— some might say a little late 
in the day — by promoting him 
from a readership to a person- 
al chair. 

He arrived at Kent after 
working at Jodrell Bank and 
the National Aeronautical and 
Space Administration's God- 
dard Spaceflight Center. The 
American connection has 
been useful, for Professor 
McDonnell led his team to the 
design of the first non-United 
States experiment to be ac- 
commodated on the Shuttle 
programme, a long-duration 
exposure facility.' 

He sai± “Space science has 
grown well in the new univer- 
sity environment of Kent; 
there have been opportunities 
for growth in phase with 
opportunities for spaceflight." 

Money has been a problem, 
despite .Professor 

McDonnell's success in win- 
ning support from the Europe- 


an Space Agency and the 
Science and Engineering Re- 
search Council. He said: “Giv- 
en the relatively weak level of 
resources, we do well in space 
research. But then English 
scientists are resourceful; they 
have learnt to make do and 
mend.” 

The Kent group’s interest in 
Halley's Comet centres on the 
motion of panicles from or 
near its nucleus. In at the birth 
of the Giotto mission. Profes- 
sor McDonnell contracted to 
design a set of foils and a dust 
shield to measure ionization 
in the vicinity of the comet 
and, determining chemical 
identities, find out exactly 
what the comet is made of. 

Halley is part of a pro- 
gramme of work that should 
last, all being well, beyond the 
year 2000. The Kent group has 
a stake in the load due to be 
carried on the diuttle 1 Ulysses; 
its flight now indefinitely de- 
layed by the destruction of 
Challenger and NASA's subse- 
quent problems. 

“There’s perhaps a blessing 
in this/* Professor McDonnell 
said. “It could mean the 
Halley data will be concentrat- 
ed on, and we won’t rush 
straight tin to a new project" 

Already preliminary plan- 
ning is being done for a space 
encounter even more ambi- 
tious than the intimate meet- 
ing of Giotto and Halley’s 
Comet Astronomical condi- 
tions will provide the opportu- 
nity. at the turn of the century, 
for a probe to land on a comet 
drill into the core and return 
to earth with samples.

The University of. Kent, was 
not the only' “new university" 
founded in the early 1960s to 
i emulate Oxbridge and estab- 
lish colleges. The universities 
of York and Lancaster have 
also been collegiate in struc- 
ture.: . 

Bui H is probably fair to say 
that Ken}; has .worked hardest 
at keeping at least the sem- 
blance of the ancient academic 
forms. 

Its success has been limited. 
Its colleges lack the endow- 
ments and corporate indepen- 
dence of the Oxford and 
Cambridge models. At times 
they appear lo be glorified 
halls of res idence. ' 

Yet. their continued exis- 
tence and the hard work put 
into .them - by staff and stu- 
dents alike, -underlie Kenfs 
boast to offer undergraduates 
the most distinctive fife-style 
of its generation of 

universities. . . . 

Kent's four colleges have no 
financial basis. Academic 

matters are dealt with at Kent, 
as elsewhere, by professors 
and lecturers, gathered in then- 
boards of studies, faculties 
and the senate. 

- As Dr-Shirley Barlow, mas- 
ter of Eliot College, argues, 
however. their importance un- 
derpins two of Kent’s great 
virtues; its emphasis on small- 
group tutorial leaching and its 
interdisciplinary studies. 

She laughs — the colleges 
have small rooms — their size 
forbids .anything other than 
intimate teaching: 

Their common rooms con- 
tain academics of varying 


n halls 

specialty, who; because Kent 
has .no departments, cannot 
retreat into the company of 
Uieir; fellow specialists. They 
sue forced to mingle and 
Kent's rich offering of cross — 
and multi-disciplinary courses 
has resulted. 

The four colleges take then- 
names from modern thinkers: 
T-5. Eliot. Maynard Keynes, 
Lord Rutherford and (19th 
rather than 20th century) 
Charles Damn. They share 
the same- physical features, 
providing a mixture of study 
bedrooms, tutorial rooms and . 
communal facilities for dining 
and leisure. . " 

Keeping the 
colleges 
separate 
over the years 
has been hard 


There is no central students* 
union building at Kent. In- 
stead, each college has hs 
junior common room to orga- 
nize events. 

Keeping the colleges sepa- 
rate over the years has not 
been easy. Students have 
pressed for more university- 
wide activities, even a single 
students’ union. 

The cost of maintaining 
four separate catering estab- 
lishments in the colleges has 
rocketed and the 1 university

has had to devise schemes to 
even out the flow of hungry 
students who are at liberty to 
eat wherever they want 

But having kept the colleges 
through the years of student 
liberalism and academic anti- 
authoritarianism, there are 
signs they might once again 
come into their own. 

Dr J.R. Butler, master of 
Darwin College, notes that 
“high table” is still in exis- 
tence and students now occa- 
sionally like to dine formally; 
they dress up; perhaps prefer a 
more ordered environment. 


Though Kent, like most 
universities, had its phase of 
student troubles 1 5 or so years 
ago, student radicalism has 
hardly tainted it The student, 
body is solidly middle-class, 
and conies predominantly 
from homes in the South-East 
of England, many within Kent 
itself The campus has a fair 
share of“Sloanes.” 


The guides to student life 
that have proliferated in re- 
cent years give it an impres- 
sive social rating, indicating 
that both parents who bave 
arrived and parents who are 
still aspiring need have few 
qualms about sending their 
offspring to Canterbury. 

Student fife at Kent is as 
rich and varied as in other 
universities with a bright and 
motivated intake. It is marked 
by a weekend exodus of young 
people in search of whatever 
young people seek at week- 


Ninety per cent of first-year 
undergraduates ■ live on the 
campus, either in the colleges 
or the popular self-catering 
residences nearby. 

Second and third years tend 
to rent houses and flats in 
Canterbury: some commute to 
the campus from the seaside 
towns of Whitstable and Her- 
ne Bay. where lodgings are 
cheaper. 


A new branch of electronics that benefits hospitals 


The recent work of Dr Richard 
Coflkr oo the use of pulsed electro- 

S*jL^?hi fractured human braes Is 
as good an example as the 
umvmttes can offer of priutical but 
imaginative work with soda! bene- 
fits. ■ 

But it also raises worrying ques- 
tions about the capacity of British 
industry to exploit technological 
innovations. 

Medical electronics is one of 
those subjects which just grew up at 
Kent without, in the past, any 
intend* on the part of university 


planners. Kent has taught electron- 
ics since its early days, since 1966, 
and now offers — uniquely — a 
decree in electronics with specializa- 
tion in medical applications, fully 
accredited by the Institution of 
Electrical Engineers. 

Medical electronics has grown op 
around die local Kent and Canter- 
bury Hospital, though there are 
dose link* with the Iamdon Hospi- 
tal too. 

Oitfafa student project Dr Collier 
has pursued an interest in measur- 
ing resonance in bones. It is, be 


notes, quite difficult for a doctor to 
tell when a fra c ture has healed, 
manual examination and X-rays 
giving ambiguous results. 

A broken bone produces a lower 
frequency of resonance at foe she of 
foe fracture; as it heals foe frequen- 
cy returns to normal. So he devel- 
oped an acoustic method of showing 
the mechanical properties of brae: 
the patient’s Grab Is weighted, a 
sensor placed on the sltiu and as 
instant read-out is available on a 
patented device put together in foe 
Kent laboratories. 

The device has been nsed on Kent 


hospital patients and in London 
with excellent results as an economi- 
cal and “nou-intrusive" means of 
charting foe progress of healing. Its 
wider use in dmicsl medicine de- 
pends on getting the device manu- 
factured, and here. Dr Collier say's, 
there are problems. 

The Americans are interested. 
Two firms, including Hewlett- 
Packard, want to exploit the 
university’s patent 

But Dr Collier has until now 
preferred the approaches made by a 
North of England firm — except that 
it is proving slow, wanting (he says) 


foe university to do every last bit of 
development before it will agree to 
manufacture. 

From its accidental birth in 
contacts between university academ- 
ics and consultants in Canterbury, 
medial electronics has burgeoned. 

There are now about 10 under- 
graduates choosing the option in 
electronics and a flourishing re- 
search programme supported for 
example by foe South East Thames 
Regional Health Authority. 

It is a course in high demand 
among the overseas students who 
flock to Kent. 


The University of Kent is 
cheap. Too cheap, the univer- 
sity says: for accidental rea- 
sons during the 1970s the 
University Grants Committee 
started paying Kent less than 
it deserved and the anomaly 
has never been put right. 

Compared with other uni- 
versities. its recurrent costs 
per student are low. about 
£3.300 in 1983-84. the lowest 
of every UK university bar 
one. 

Kent’s figure is low because 
the bulk of its students are in 
subjects that are relatively 
inexpensive to teach and 
siudy; the humanities and 
social sciences. It teaches no 
medicine and little engineer- 
ing. two costly subjects. Yet 
even compared with universi- 
ties with a similar “mix" of 
subjects. Kent emerges as an 
economical institution, the 
third or fourth cheapest. 

Kent is simultaneously 
proud and ashamed of such 
figures. The university takes 
comfort from the (act that it 
provides an academic educa- 
tion of high quality at relative- 
ly, lower cost- But the fact that 
the UGC has managed to 
under-fund Kent for years also 
means in times of tight 
fiancial restraint that the UGC 
is likely to continue to want to 
under-fond 

Kenfs vice-chancellor. Dr 
, David Ingram, a physicist, has 
made no secret of his antago- 
nism towards the present 
government’s higher educa- 
tion policy: he has. if anything, 
been more outspoken than 
some colleagues. Yet Kent has 
had little option but' to co- 
operate fully with the UGC as 
it tries to translate the 
government's priorities and 
demands for savings into its 
annual grants to universities. 

Kent's position can be seen 
most cleariy in the response it 
made last November to the 
UGCs request/demand for a 
statement by each university 
of its plans for the rest of the 
decade. 

Kent's problem is stated on 
page one. The Government 
through the UGC is trying to 
engineer a shift in student 
members from the arts and 
social sciences to science and 
technology. Kent has attempt- 
ed to boost its numbers in 
science, but it remains 
predominantely an ans-social 
sciences university. 


Its problem in the face of 
ihe UGC is how to emphasize 
its commitment to expanding 
science and boosting its scien- 
tific research (and so earn 
official approval and extra _ 
money) while remaining true ‘ 
its scholars and researchers in 
the humanities and social 
studies. 

But on one count. Kent has 
no trouble meeting the UGCs 
preferences head on. The 
UGC nowadays has a pen- 
chant for ‘’rationalization" — 
ensuring that universities 
share libraries and laborato- 
ries with each other and with 
other colleges in the 
vicinity. Kent told the UGC 
quite properly that in Kent 
there are no other colleges. 

It said: “The location of the 
un versity means that it is -the 
major centre for higher educa- 
tion in the region.” The only 
other institutions around are 
the Mid- Kent College of High- 
er Education, Christ Church 
College, a former teacher edu- 
cation college already affiliat- 
ed to the university, and Wye 
College near .Ashford, a spe- 
cialist agricultural college that 
is part of the University of 
London. 

Unlike some universities. 
Kent told the UGC it has a 

Pride in its work 
on biochemistry 
and 

microbiology 

research plan - a list of 
specialisms into which it in- 
tended to put any extra money 
there was. It reflects Kent’s 
conception of its ideal self as a 
rounded institution, strong in 
both ans and sciences, also a 
hard-headed appraisal of 
where, in years to come, 
intellectual, financial and in- 
stitutional interests will lie. 

“In determining research 
strengths,” .the university told 
the UGC, “we have used as 
performance indicators publi- 
cation records in books and 
articles, patents, prizes and 
awards, invitations to lecture 
and panicipate in conferences. 
We have also taken account of 
the value of external grants. 
We have had an eye to the

gown make 
>ite affair 


Kent University is dominated 
by splendid views of the city of 
Canterbury beneath it. The 
architects even deliberately 
designed two of its colleges. 
Eliot and Rutherford, to be 
pierced by vistas of the 
cathedral. 

From the town the low-rise 
university buildings are unob- 
trusive. the landscaped cam- 
pus on St Thomas's and St 
Stephen's Hills enhance the 
solid villas creeping out of 
Canterbury on Whitstable 
Road. But though they are 
□ear and physically compati- 
ble in a Kentish son of way. 
town and gown have yet to 
embrace with much passion. 

The university _ is sited 
where it is because, in die bier 
1950s, Canterbury’s city fa- 
thers and officials of the Kent 
County Council wanted it 
there. Canterbury, a city, 
needed a university. For all 
the debris of modernity it is 
still possible in certain lights 
and from certain angles to 
conjure up the town of Canter- 
bury as it might have appeared 
to a William Cobben riding 
down from Rochester replete 
with the local oysters. 

The 1 5th-century cathedral 
nave rises to dominate the 
skvfine and the ancient city 
walls guard the close. It surely 
was a fitting university town. 

Relations, however, are 
more humdrum. The univer- 
sity brings in income for 
traders and landlords and. 
nowadays considerable num- 
bers of non academia to 
conferences in the vacations. 

A decade ago townspeople 
disliked student squatters and 
blamed the university for 
importing socialist votes into 
a true-blue town (an assertion 
university psephologists 
proved was mistaken); but the 
university has made special 

*1] ' - 
K 5 - - • • 


efforts to win hearts and 
minds. 

The university’s sponsors 
30 years ago had high hopes 
when they proclaimed: “The 
educational and cultural life of 
the city are such that a 
university would not find 
itself planted in an arid soil. 
There is every expectation 
that the city and surrounding 
county on the one hand and 
the university on the other 
would be of mutual support 
and benefit." 

That may now be true, but it 
has taken years of patient 
efTort on the part of Kent 
academics, and especially its 
school of continuing educa- 
tion. Despite initial enthusi- 
asm for the university from 
Kent County Hall at Maid- 
stone. the county has not been 
prepared to make more than a 
token grant to the university 
and has not been able to 
scheme educational plans 
around it: so the university 
has taken its own initiatives. 

To say that Dr Alan 
Barb rook, director of the 
school, has a social mission 
would be exaggerating. He and 
his stafT do have a deep 
commitment to the provision 
of educational opportunities 
not so much to the socially 
deprived (the county of Kent 
has fewer of those than most 
places) as to the community at 
large. This lakes the form of a 
cornucopia of part-time and 
evening courses and one-day 
and weekend conferences. 

Kent i$ typical of British 
universities in that its hinter- 
land has had minimal effect 
on its courses or research 
interests. Its sociologists study 
the Isle of Thanet: there is talk 
of setting up a study group to 
examine aspects of the Chan- 
nel Tunnel project, but by and 
large Kent and the university 
go their own ways.

University neighbours: Canterbury and its ancient cathedral 


Because the county is pre- 
dominantly rural and subur- 
ban, it is largely empty 
territory in the search for 
industrial and commercial re-' 
search sponsorship. Four 
years ago the university set up 
an umbrella organization for 
linking research and industry, 
but its ambit - says its 
director Mr Bernard Wans - 
extends far beyond the county 
of Kent. The search for spon- 
sorship and industrial collabo- 
ration is world-wide. 

Mr Watts’ task at KSIP - 
Kent Scientific and Industrial 
Projects Ltd - is big. The 
university's research estab- 
lishment is small. His job is to 
effect introductions, to 
smooth pathways, 'and his 
success is measured by the fact 
that KSIP now has £750,000 
turnover a year. 

Much of this is in the area of 
biotechnology, a new field 
where Kent is well-placed. 
Biotechnological applications 
are likely to be the attraction 
of the purpose-built suite of 
offices and workshops the 
university has just built on 
campus to let to commercial 
firms. One of the first tenants 
will be LH Bioprocessing, a 
subsidiary of the Porton Inter- 
national Group. 

LH Bioprocessing was set 
up to exploit the new technol- 
ogy within genetic engineering 
to do with fermentation pro- 
cesses; it is looking for applica- 
tions in pharmaceutical 
products, and speciality chem- 
icals for the food and agricul- 
tural industries. 

“This is not a science park", 
Mr Watts avers. In a sense the 
research-and-development 
centre is more a response to. 
pressure within the univeristy 
from the existing volume of 
contract research in laborato- 
ries already bursting at the 
seams. The hope is that it will 
prove a mecca for small 
companies on their way to 
expansion. Mr Watts detects 
an encouraging attitude 
change on the part of Kent 
academics. He says: “You can 
see them being educated in the 
ways of commerce. They see 
the benefits that accrue from 
successful industrial 
collaboration. 

“Unquestionably things 
have changed over the past 
five years. It is now becoming 
quite respectable to hold an 
industrial contract" 

Kent’s success story is 
Bioxrans. an association be- 
tween campus scientists and 
the laboratory of the Govern- 
ment Chemist an industrial 
research establishment under 
the wing of the Department of 
Trade and Industry; the gov- 
ernment has paid £1 million 
to get the venture off the 
ground. 

Its work is 

“biotransformation" the use 
of organisms to convert the 
structure of chemicals. Dr 
Chris Knowles, professor of 
microbial biochemistry at the 
university has, for example, 
won wide recognition for his 
work using the enzyme cya- 
nide hydratase to detoxify 
cyanide; ICI bas started pilot 
production of a fungal enzyme 
to feed on cyanide effluents, 
thanks to work at Kent.

ahead of contemporary 

fashion." 

The resulting appraisal 
picked out research in the 
chemical laboratory on col- 
loids and interfaces and fun- 
damental studies on the 
mechanisms of chemical and 
biochemical reactions in solu- 
tion. The latter stood along- 
side Kent's pride that its work 
in biochemistry and microbi- 
ology was, for its size, among 
the top 10 per cent in the UK. 

Kent's work in biotech- 
nology had received the acco- 
lade of a £1.5 million grant 
from the Department ofTrade 
and Industry itself. 

Other Kent strengths are: 

• computing, especially func- 
tion programming and formal 
methods 

electronics, especially optical 
communications 

• statistics in the shape of the 
Applied Statistics Research 
Unit originally funded by a 
“pump-priming" grant fiom 
the UGC but now supporting 
itself from research contract 
money and involved in solv- 
ing problems for private firms 
and industry. 

The university told the 
UGC "We wish to protect 
those areas identified as re- 
search priorities, provided 
that doing so is consistent 
with preserving a sufficient 
spread of expertize to cover 
our teaching commitments.” 
But it warned against over- 
reliance on quick application 
of such research. 

There is a note in this of 
Kent’s self-awareness and 
pride as a university dedicated 
j ip longer-term seeking after 
! truth and new knowledge — 
“An important part of our job 
will be to make sure that lotw- 
term research of scientific 
value is not dominated by 
immediate technological 
relevance." 


The down-to-earth approach opens 
up a hotline to Whitehall 


Kent University’s soda! scien- 
tists fit the stereotype badly. 
Its political scientists are ad- 
mitted into the very portals of 
Number Ten. Its sociologists 
are entrepreneurs, heavily in- 
volved teaching utilitarian 
courses on behalf of the Man- 
power Services Commission to 
would-be businessmen eager 
to start np on their own. 

Its social administrators, in 
the shape of the highly suc- 
cessful Personal Social Ser- 
vices Research Unit, are 
primary recipients of research 
contracts from the Depart- 
ment of Health and Sodal 
Security. Kent docs not appear 
to be listed by government

vants as a hotbed either at 
ideological extremism or im- 
practical academka.

“we have never gone into

university's social policy spe- 
cialists even, a few years ago.

“clinic" bringing radical law to

there were no Marxist social

izing in local government, the 
political scientist area at Kent 
now includes Professor Colin 
Seymour-Ure, an analyst of 
the relations of government 
and the media who has recent- 
ly completed a study of the 
likes of the notorious former 
mouthpiece for President Nix- 
on, Ron Ziegler, presidential 
spokesman. 

Professor Seynnmr-Ure has, 
bees associated with the 
: growth on the Kent campus of 
a unique collection of potiticai 
cartoons but his next project is 
to lead him into studying a 
type of political spokesperson 
not to Mr Ziegler, 

tiie prime msoisterifll press 
secretary, of whom Mr Ber- 
nard Ingham at Number Ten 
Downing Street has recently 
become such an . egregious 
example. 

Professor Seymom-Ure ho 
won research money to study " 
prime minister’s spokespeople 
in Britain and a selection of 
other democracies. 

He is not the only Kent 
sodal scien tist flying dose to

submission to foe UGC Kent 

emphasized its .research 

strength in what it called the 
sodal consequences of eco- 
nomic change --the effect on ' 
ramifi es and households .of 
unemployment for example. 

Soda work has bees spear- 
headed bysaddog^Profes- 
ser Ray Pahl who led a 
research group hi studying the 
styles of life of unei ployed . 
(antilies in the Isle of Thanet : 
. His rather pessimistic condor 
suns about the withdrawal of 
the unemployed from a normal 
pattern of sodal and leisure 
activities woe balanced by the 
• folding that families where 
one or more iulntts had jobs

borne impro vement and so on. 

" Unemployed people lacked

withaL to we thefr “leisure" to

i n v ita tion to present his find-

are also working on the bound- 
ary between eco nom i c s and

active builder of a new insti- 
tute Of management at Kent

Xnricta, a local commercial 
radio ststfcm. 

Professor Scase leaves the 
in^ressira tint sociology at 
Kent is down-to-earth. “We’re 


ly agnostec,* he says. The 
mtivenfty has certainly been 
wed rewarded by the main 
provider of foods for sociologi- 
cal research, the Economic 
and Sodal Research Council. 
Wkb much of the money going 
to its specialist health and 
social services research units, 
sodal science at Kent has 
earned some £1.25 millions In 
gnats wud contracts. 

$»tDr David Morgan, dean 
tfsocfaL sciences, b keen to 
point oat that social sciences 
at Kent: do not just mean 
sociology. Ihtbe faculty there 
: are or coarse economists 
(edecta with relative strength 
in quantitative methods), so- 
cial psychologists, lawyers 
and, the darlings of the 1980s, 
accountants. . 

“Accountants," he says, 
“oe as elsewhere still trying 
to construct their a cadem ic 
identity. Our accountancy stu- 
dents are, however, in such 
demand became they have 
beat taught things like corpo- 
rate^ planning, world econom-

RACING; BRITTAIN’S TOUGH CUSTOMER SET TO REPEAT KEMPTON TRIUMPH 


Morale high for Grey Desire 


Grey Desire, Mel Brittain's 
tough six-year-old. is napped 
to win the Quail Stakes at 
Kempton a second time this 
afternoon. Before he won it 
last year he bad finished 
unplaced in the Cam midge 
Trophy at Doncaster. This 
time he enters the fray fresh 
from a morale-boosting vie 
lory in the same sprint at 
Doncaster. What he did there 
he should manage again, espe- 
cially as he proved last year 
that he is not remotely put om 
of his stride by the son of 
testing conditions that he will 
encounter again this after- 
noon. 

Formatune and Will 
George, others to have won at 
Doncaster recently, are also 
both fancied to cash in on 
their fitness in the Capital card 
Handicap and the Paddock 
Handicap respectively. 

But m these races I just 
prefer Fusilier and Hilton 
Brown. Fusilier was carrying 
overweight when he finished 
■third in the Uncoln, while 
Hilton Brown will be meeting 
Will George on 71b better 
terms. 

At Nottingham Lester 
Piggort's first two runners as a 
I trainer will inevitably arouse 
interest on the course where 
he bowed out as a jockey in 
this country. 


By Mandarin (Michael Phillips) 

While the word from New- 
market is that Piggott has a 
good chance of wuming the 
Clurr 


lumber Stakes for Charles St 


George with Caeiios tro, who 
was with Henry Cecil 


.'ecil last year, 
the feeling there is that his 
other runner. Georgie’s De- 
light. will be beaten in the 
Little John Stakes by Gavin 
Pritchard-Gordon’s Cresta 
Auction, whose stable com- 
panion Dhofar is also expect- 
ed to win the Coral 
Bookmaker Hurdle at 
Fakenham. 

George Robinson, our New- 
market correspondent, also 
passes on encouragement for 
Weshaam (2.30) and Hoist the 
Axe (4.30). Ben Hambury’s 
two runners at Newcastle. The 
latter was beaten only a length 
there on Saturday by Soxoph 
while the former has obvious- 
ly been going great guns on the 
Heath. 

Otherwise it should pay to 
follow Peter Easterby at 
Gosforth Park. The redoubt- 
able Yorkshire trainer will be 
looking to Well Rigged to 
recover their Lincoln losses in 
the Newcastle Centenary 
Handicap while Cumbrian 
Dancer is expected to go well 
in the Northern Handicap on 
ground that seemed to suit 
him last year. 

True to form Easterby's 


stable for all seasons will also 
be fielding some of its jumpers 
on this busy afternoon. 1 can 
envisage Cy brand inn being 
too quick for Earls Brig in the 
H S Commercial Spares 
Handicap Chase and thus 
compensating his connections 
for their overall misfortune in 
the Cheltenham Gold Cup 
which ended in disaster when 
a stirrup leather broke after 
only six fences. 

But stable companion 
Ryeman will surely need to be 
at his very best if he is to beat 
Josh Gifford's southern raider 
Simon Legree, who ran so well 
at Cheltenham to finish a close 
third in the Miklmay in the 
Flete Challenge Cup. 

Elsewhere the successful 
Ross-on-Wye trainer John Ed- 
wards looks the man to follow 
at Hereford, where Mana Reef 
(3.0). Deo* Crest (3.30) and 
Castle Warden (4.0) are all 
thought capable of winning, 
leaving stable companion 
Strath Leader to keep the flag 
flying at Market Rasen by 
winning the Ketsby Novice's 
Chase. 

Still on the Lincolnshire 
track I can envisage Mark 
Pitman landing a double there 
for his mother Jenny on Red 
Rocky (3.25) and Mr Dibbs 
(4.35). 

Oliver Sherwood is another 


Upper Lamboum trainer with 
doubly good prospects this 
afternoon, but on different 
courses. 

While his brother Simon 
will be on duty at Newton 
Abbot to partner their father's 
nice young horse Harry’s 
Double in the Castle Circus 
Novice's Hurdle, Clive Cox, 
his understudy at Rhone hurst, 
will be at Wincanton to part- 
ner Predominate in the first 
division of the Axbridge 
Novice's Hurdle. Both will be 
hard to beat, while Battle 
King, from Fred Winter’s 
yard, is another big Lamboum 
tip for the second division

LEGAL NOTICES 


Traditionally lightweights domi- 
nate the Irish Grand National 
laud this past week punters have 
seized npoii this ss a decisive 
doe in their attempts to identify 
the winner of Ireland's richest 
steeplechase ran today at 
Fairy bo ase. The animal to take 
their fancy has been Omerta, 
who was backed from 1 2-1 down 
to joint favouritism on Saturday 
morning with two major English 
fancies Run and Skip and 

Bt ghelranil M*n 

Certainly Omerta looks to 
have been given a real chance by 
the handkapper. Captain Louis 
Magee, for he will be carrying a 
mere 9si 81b as compared to the 
J2st of Ran and Slop and the 
list 91b of Ri ghthand Man. 

The last time Omerta per- 
formed was at Cheltenham when 
in the four mile National Hunt 
Chase he made light of 12st 71b, 
winning in a canter by a dozen 
lengths from Another Dragon. 
Even though there is a world of 
difference between the class of 
the average National Hunt 
Chase competitor and the horses 
that figure prominently in the 
Cheltenham Gold Cnp, I believe 
Omerta can triumph today. 


The two top weights fit into 
the latter category having fin- 
ished fourth and fifth behind the 
great mare. Dawn Rim, this 
month. Rim and Skip made the 
better effort by far, keeping 
company with Dawn Ron for the 
greater part of the race and still 
being in contention at the secsod 
last fence. He -bad, however, 
nude a coaple of bad mistakes, 

Righthand Man ran a very 
different sort of race, never 

really flowing iiitn i ^ply iKmi | 

hot it is probable that he was 
short of a race for this was his 
first start since running fonrth to 
Ron And Skip at Chepstow 
before Christmas. Comparing 
the Fairy house and Chepstow 
handicaps, one finds that 
Righthand Man is now 181b 
better off and Mrs Dickinson is 
very optimistic that he can turn 
the tables with Ron And Skip. 

It is well worth remembering 
that Righthand Man nut n 
splendid race in last year's Grid 
Cop. being beaten only 2 Vi 
lengths by Forgive hi* Forget If 
he can recapture that form be 
would certainly be the pick iff 
the English trio with Maori 
Venture the outsider of the trio.

Paul Cole sent out his first 
winner from his new stable 
complex at Whaicombe when 
the newcomer. Tisn't. landed 
the Bonusprint Easier Slakes by 
half a length from the fevourite. 
Hello Entani. 

Tisn’t. a grey coh by the ill- 
feted Derby winner Shergar. got 
the better of a last-furlong 
struggle with Hello Emani, after 
his more experienced stable 
companion Fouz. had weakened 
into third place after taking up 
the running two furlongs out. 
ironically. Fouz was the choice 
of Richard Quinn. Cole's stable 

jockey. The mount on Tisn't 
went to Philip Waldron. 

Tisn't is generally quoted at 
around 33-1 for the Epsom 
Derby which will now be the 
colt's main target- Waldron said: 
**He didn't like the ground and 


chance; Milton Bum. expertly 
handled in ihe soft ground by 
Steve Dawson. The 6-4 
favourite. Meadowbrook. sec- 
ond to Withy Bank at Doncaster 
last week led until Accuracy 
took over inside the final fur- 
long. but Dawson forced Milton 
Bum through a gap between 
Accuracy and Meadowbrook 
The Kempton stewards 
quickly sent for Hugh O'Neill, 
the trainer, to explain the 
improvement in form by his 
first winner of the season. He 
sai± "I told them that Milton 
Bum had run too freely at 
Doncaster last week, whereas 
today he was held up for a late 
challenge. This was accepted.”

■ John Winter, the Newmarket 


trainer, who had been ill for six 
weeks, is now recovered and was 
in winning form for the first 
time this season with Stately 
Lass in the Bonusprint Masaka 
Stakes. 

Winter said: ** Stately Lass is a 
nice filly, but she's just missed 
the top class. She will probably 
get further than this seven 
furlongs, but is not entered in 
the classics.

Philip Comes Nickel Alloys Maiden Auction 
Stakes at Haydock Park on Saturday. The 
Newmarket filly, backed from 4-1 to 2-1, was 
soon in front, with Guest sitting for as long as he 
dared before he went for his whip to hold the 
strong late challenges of Clown Streaker and Take

THE TIMES MONDAY MARCH 31 1986 


FOOTBALL: STALEMATE AS SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY AND LIVERPOOL CANCEL EACH OTHER OUT 

Spirit of the Cup moves at Hillsborough 


By a Correspondent 

Sheffield Wednesday - 0 
Liverpool 0 

“I have just told them it was a 
perfect dross-rehearsal for 
next Saturday,” Howard Wfl- 
ltinson, the Sheffield Wednes- 
day manager, remarked after 
his team's dour, tight match 
with Liverpool had. almost 
inevitably, ended goalless. 

That sounded like an invitar 
lion to stay away from this 
Saturday's semi-finals, in 
which Wednesday play 
Everton and Liverpool play 
Southampton. However, it 
did not dissuade the Wednes- 
day faithful who wound round 
Hillsborough to buy their cup 
tickets after this game bad 
ended. 

Wilkinson had hit the nail 
on the head. Hillsborough, a 
regular semi-final venue, was 
fufi enough to be entertaining 
such a game, and the spectacle 
was more like one of those 
tense encounters than a 
League match throughout 
The tension was evident in 
some angry exchanges, and 
chances were few and far 
between. 

When they did come, they 
tended to be snatched at As 
Wednesday pressed forward, 
Snodin, Thompson; and 
Chamberlain saw opportuni- 
ties fleetingly come and disap- 
pear again as Liverpool's 
defence closed down sharply. 

Liverpool's opportunities 
were fewer but more clear-out. 
The endings were the same, 
hasty shots betraying Walsh 
and Mdby before and after 
half-time, the latter after 
Liverpool's best move of the 
match had for once opened up 
Wednesday's defence. 

Those occasions apart, Liv- 


erpool were content to sit 
.back, suggesting that 
Wilkinson's belief that they 
had come to avoid defeat was 
correct That analysis also 
offered justification for 
Dalglish's otherwise incom- 
prehensible decision to drop 
himself and recall Walsh after 
an absence of 1 1 games with 
an ankle injury. 

Walsh lasted 60 minutes, 
reportedly satisfied his man- 
ager before being replaced, but 
the success Madden bad in 
quelling Rush, who has been 
thriving since Dalglish's re- 
turn to the team, suggested 
that the Scottish international 
is still the difference between 
his team being a good one and 
genuine challengers for the 
League championship. 

Notwithstanding the loss of 
Worthington, their best player 
until he lunged into a tackle 
after 40 minutes and sprained 
knee ligaments which will rule 
him out of contention for a 
month. Wednesday could take 
marginally more satisfaction 
from the game. Wilkinson was 
particularly pleased with the 
disrilpine that his team 
showed, a measure of their 
progress in the last two sea- 
sons. 

“We used to be a bit Roy of 
the Rovers about it bead 
down and charge." he ex- 
plained. That may be true, but 
it raises the thought that 0-0 
draws do not get you to 
Wembley - some time you 
actually have to score.

Football's a fanny game, 
Brian. In other games — games 
of the nnfanay variety — you 
know that an in finitely superior 
side will almost always smack

the rare occasions they do not, 
you have a feast Bat such stuff 
is the daily bread of football.

Those who were there hoping to 
see the triumph of pnre skill left 
disappo in ted. 

However, there was 
compensation to be fond in the 
face of Ron Atkinson. Atkinson, 
the Urited mana g er , the man 


who makes Whiteside's dhow

If Enfidd achieve their am- 
bition this year of a Gola League 
and FA Trophy double, they are 
likely to look back on John 
Docker's goal on Saturday as a 
crucial point in their season 
(Paul Newman writes). Docker's 
equalizer four minutes from the 
end of the home leg of the north 
London side's Trophy semi- 
final ag ainst Altrincham secured 
a 1-1 draw in front of a crowd of 
1,804. Altrincham, who lost 4-1 
at home to Enfield in the League 


a fortnight ago, had taken the 
lead early in the second half 
when Newton scored from the 
penally spot after Howell had 
fouled Reid. 

Defences were firmly in con- 
trol of the other tie, in which 
Kettering Town secured a 
goalless draw at Runcorn in 
front of a crowd of 2J00. 
Harrison hit a post for Kettering 
after four minutes but chances 
were few and far between there- 
after.

Portsmouth — : ..1 

Wimbledon 1 

The flak fairly flew at Fratton 
Park on Saturday. On the pitch 
there was the bantamweight 
contest between Kennedy and 
Galliers and the heavyweight 
one involving Fashanu and 
Blake. And off it there was the 
verbal jousting between the 
respective m a na gers. Oh, and 
there was a little football in 
between. 

The only incident of note in a 
first half devoid of creative 

imr flMCA«it l a vMtenltlr 


save from O’Ca lla g h an after 
Sanchez had brought down 
Hilaire. With the wind in the 
first half giving way to a second 
half downpour, and the slippery 
surface now conducive to the 
sliding tackle or whatever other 
challenge that came thudding in, 
the entertainment value im- 
proved. if mostly for the wrong 
reasons. Not the least of them 
was the way the rampaging 
Fashanu put himself about after 
Blake had swept Portsmouth 
ahead from O’Callaghan’s cor- 
ner. 

Fashanu was picking up 
where he had left off in midweek 
when playing for his previous 
club. Millwall. at Portsmouth. 


But like the good law student he 
is, Fashanu mounted an ex- 
cellent defence to the accusa- 
tions levelled at him afterwards 
by Alan Ball. The Portsmouth 
manag er had accused him of 
elbowing three players and of 
buttrag Gilbert in the tunnel as 
the players left the field. “There 
seems to be a campaign to 
blacken my name if that is 
possible,’’, the eloquent 
Fashanu said-“ If I am leaving a 
trail of destruction behind me. 
then I am sorry. There was talk 
of me coming to Portsmouth. I 
wonder if it is still ■on.” 

Within three ntnmtes of com- 
ing on as substitute, Fashanu 


viva! which led to Smith's 
beaded equalizer. With Ports- 
mouth distracted by having to 
keep more than one eye on 
Fashanu. Gilbert was almost 
panicked into an own goal and 
Smith had another header 
cleared off the line by 
O'Callaghan. And aQ the while 
Kennedy and Galliers contin- 
ued to pile into each other as 
though determined not to be 
upstaged.

The most exciting finish in 
the 10-year history of the pre- 
mier division was assured when 
aD four contenders for the 
Scottish championship won 
crucial matches on Saturday. 

Heart of MModnaa, the head- 
era, remain favourites. Showing 
little sign of tension, and still 
playing with commendable 
style, they beat Raagera 3-1 at 
Tyuecastie with goals from 
Ro b er tson (2) and dark. This 
win extended their unbeaten run 
to 27 games, equalling the 
League mad Cup record set by 
Rangers in 1976. Rangers, 
whose goal was scored by 
McGoist, faded to reveal the 
form so enthusiastically ap- 
plauded by their s u p porters 
against Celtic the previous 
wccIl. 

While Alex MwDonald, the 
Hearts manager, felt his side 
had been fortunate to win, his 
opposite number, Jock Wallace, 
asserted that Hearts “were 
certainties to take the League 
title." If they do, they will owe 
much to their young striker, 
Robertson, who has scored 
lOgoats in the last eight games. 

Hearts, however, are by no 
means out on their own. D—d re 
United, their closest challengers, 
five points behind bat with two 
games in band, had a satisfying 


1-0 win over their Tayside 
rivals, Dundee, at Dens Park. 
They were more sophisticated 
than their aggressive opponents, 
and Gough, who is fast becom- 
ing the country's outstanding 
defender, scored with a superb 
header. 

Aberdeen beat Motherwell i> 
0 at Hr Park, thanks to a goal 
from Hewitt, but they had 
reserve goalkeeper Gunn - 
deputizing for the injured Leigh- 
ton - to thank for keeping than 
in the title roe. He made two fine 
saves to allow the champions to 
maintain their challenge. They 
are now seven points behind 
Hearts, with two matches in 
hand. 

A 54) win over Clydebank 
enabled Celtic to stay in conten- 
tion. although they are nine 
points behind the leaders, with 
three matches in hand. After a 
deplorable first half they gave 
their struggling opponents a 
lesson in scoring, with goals 
from McClair (3), Bums, and 
Mclnally. 

As the leading contenders 
have to play' each other before 
the season ends, even more 
excitement is promised for spec- 
tators who have relished the 
most engrossing football played 
in Scotland since the Second 
World War.

Gooch facing the 
politicians again 

From Join Woodcock, Cricket Cornypondat, Fort Spain, Trinidad 


England’s cricketers, back 
in Trinidad for today's fourth 
and final one-day internation- 
al and Thursday's fourth Test 
match, have actually had two 
compulsory practices in the 
Iasi two days — in Barbados on 
Saturday morning and here 
yestendy morning. Tbeir wives 
and children have mostly 
departed; Gooch broods dark- 
ly over his differences with Mr 
Lester Bird, his old adversary 
from Antigua; the West Indian 
Cricket Board of Control 
(WICBC) predict a loss on the 
tour of something over 
£50,000; and Gatling's injured 
thumb is making such a 
disappointingly slow recovery 
that he is out of today’s match 
and posssibly Thursday's as 
well. 

Gooch was angered by a 
statement made by Mr Bird 
when the team were in Anti- 

g ua early last month. A sq liab- 
le had developed, concerning 
the tour, between Mr Bird, the 
island's deputy Prime Minis- 
ter, and the Minister of Educa- 
tion, Culture and Youth 
Affairs, Mr Reuben Harris, 
rivals within the same party. 
Mr Harris accused Mr Bird of 
“divorcing his persona from 
his public status" and “under- 
mining cricket in Antigua” by 
giving the tour “the green 
light" and then urging the 
public to boycott iL r 
As captain of the English 
side which played in South 


Africa in 1982, and being the 
cricketer he is, Gooch is 
invariably picked on as per- 
sonifying sportsmen who 
“treat with apartheid". There 
is no point in going over the 
whole affair again, except to 
say that in no statement he has 
ever made, and in no sentence 
that he has ever written, has 
Gooch been “contemptuous 
of the Caribbean people" as 
Mr Bird clearly implied in his 
open altercation with Mr Har- 
ris. Mr Bird went oiu“l cannot 
accept that a simple retraction 
of a statement is sufficient to 
wash away the comfort which 
six players in the English side 
have given to a regime which 
brutalizes people, deprives 
them of their civil rights and 
slaughters them in the 
streets.” 

Not surprisingly, Gooch 


sions. For weeks they have 
obsessed him, and he can be a 
stubborn old thing . He is also 
proud and very straight So 
when Peter May flew back to 
England from Barbados last 
Wednesday he was the bearer 
of a note from Gooch to 
Raman Subba Row, chairman 
of the Test and County Crick- 
et Board (TCCB), saying that 
he will go to Antigua for the 
fifth Test match only i£ by 
some means or other, the 
record is put straight 
That is where the matter 
now stands. The TCCB and 


Pakistan make a 
sound opening 


COLOMBO (Reuter) - Pa- 
kistan, sent into bat by Sri 
Lanka, won the opening one- 
day international for the Asia 
Cup here yesterday after bring 
restricted to 197 all out in 
their 45 overs. Sri Lanka in 
response collapsed to 116 all 
out in 33.5 oven, only three 
batsmen reaching double-fig- 
ures. 

SCORES; Pakistan 187 (45 overafc 
Sri Lanka 116 (33,5 overs). Pakistan 
won by 81 runs. 

• Auckland (Renter) — Aus- 


tralia beat New Zealand by 44 
runs here on Saturday to 
square the one-day interna- 
tional series at 2-2. Greg 
Matthews won the man of the 
match award, scoring 54 in a 
fifth-wicket partnership of 100 
with Ritchie and later 
tookthree wickets for 33. Rain 
reduced the match to 45 overs 
per side instead of the sched- 
uled 50. 

SCORES: Australia 231 (6 R J 
Matthews 54, G M Ritchie 53); Now 
Zealand 187 for 9. 


the WICBC have been in- 
volved in it for some weeks, as 
they will be again tomorrow 
when Donald Carr, secretary 
of the TCCB, returns to Lord's 
after the Easier holiday. At the 
worst, the whole England 
team, already understandably 
indignant on Gooch's behalf! 
might align themselves behind 
him. In that case this week’s 
Test match could be the last of 
the series. But that is some- 
thing Mr Bird, as a politician, 
would hardly want to have 
held against him, not least 
because it might suit Mr 
Harris. 

In anticipating such a heavy 
financial loss on the tour, the 
secretary of the WICBC gives 
three chief reasons: the deval- 
uation of the currency in 
Trinidad and Jamaica; the 
cost of the additional security 
required to guard against pos- 
sible disruption of Die match- 
es by anti-apartheid 
demonstrators and the world- 
wide trend towards reduced 
crowds at first-dass games and 
Test matches, made worse 
here by England’s poor perfor- 
mances and whatever re- 
sponse has been to tire 
boycott 

“When we planned the 
tour," says Steve Camacho, 
“we had no idea that the 
Trinidad and Tobago dollar 
would drop so much by the 
time the matches were played 
in Port of Spain. And there 
was no telling what the rale of 
the Jamaican dollar would be. 
Even with the Cable and 
Wireless sponsorship, which is 
the most we ha ve ever had and 
has been a tremendous boost 
we are looking at our biggest 
overall loss ever.” 

Trinidad and Tobago deval- 
ued their dollar by 33 per cent 
last December, cutting its 
value from 41 to 27 American 
cents, while Jamaica's curren- 
cy has been going through an 
unstable period. In the ordi- 
nary way Trinidad accounts 
for approximately 40 per cent 
of the revenue mom a tour. 
This time it has already cost 
the best part of £30,000 to 
screen the Queen’s Rule OvaL 


Gate receipts in Barbados, 
boosted by the large influx of 
English supporters, totalled 
£75,000 for the three matches 
played there, .which was con- 
sidered satisfactory. 

Commenting on criticism of 
England’s decision not to 
make last Friday’s practice 
compulsory, although most of 
the party had not been on a 
cricket field since the previous 
Sunday, Gower has said that 
“people have been looking at 
this the wrong way round.” It 
is not the six who chose not to 
practice who should be fruit- 
ed, he said, but the 11 who did 
that should be specially com- 
mended. Well, you can hardly 
get more cynical than that in 
the wake of another crashing 
Test defeat 

It seems that it was only 
because Gatling fell lire need 
for practice that anyone went 
at alL Now Tony Brown, the 
manager, has asserted his 
authority by instructing Gow- 
er and the assistant manager, 
Willis, that in future all prac- 
tices shall be compulsory. In 
the last eight years the West 
Indian side has had no more 
than two or three optional 
practices, and those were for 
the benefit of players newly- 
arrived on a long tour. 

England's best chance of a 
win in any of their last three 
matches comes today. There 
will be the incentive of a large 
crowd and the knowledge that 
victory would bring a share of 
the one-day series. The pitch is 
the same as that on which 
England won the second one- 
day international the only 
notable victory of their torn-, 
and Gooch made 129 not out 
It is recognisaMy West Indian 
in appearance, unlike most 
there have been. “The way to 
come back," said Gower yes- 
terday, “is to do wed 
tomorrow”. The side attempt- 
ing that shows two changes 
from the one who lost the one- 
day game in Bridgetown, Elli- 
son and Edmonds replacing 
Slack and Thomas.

ROWING 


Veterans 9 domination leaves 
schoolboys with the blues 


So dominated by older men 
is the event that most years it 
could be called the Veterans' 
Boat Race. This time it was 
won, stylishly, confidently and 
emphatically, by the younger 
of two mature crews. With 12 
postgradnates out of 16 oars- 
men, the promising schoolboy 
Oxbridge entrant can no long- 
er look towards the Boat Rare 
with serious expectations. 

Oxford, who were falling 
behind from the first stroke, 
had only three men under 25. 
Cambridge were, by compari- 
son, mere kids, with only two 
over 24. Pritchard, their 
stroke and the second oldest in 
the race at 28, said afterwards: 
“As the pressure from media 
coverage increases, the ability 
to stand hack and be competi- 
tively rational is important 
But the race will see postgrad- 
uates more and more.” 

Cambridge looked terrific. 
They had that long, swinging 
throb in rhythmic unison of a 
sea engine, and the only favour 
they did Oxford was to remove 
tire weights of history from the

Alan Inns, Cambridge's

Middlesex waterman all his 
fife, was still shivering with 
excitement half an hour after 
tire eclipse of a 1 0-year tale of

Cambridge mood: “We wait

Dangerous 

Welshmen 

From Richard Eaton 
Uppsala 

Steve Suttou and Chris 
Rees, the rival Analo-Welsh- 
men, may prove themselves 
the most dangerous floaters in 
the European championships, 
sponsored by Pharmacia, 
which started here yesterday. 
Sutton beat Johann 
Ratheyser, of Austria, 15-1, 
15-3, and Rees defeated 
Jorgen van der Pol of Switzer- 
land, 15-9, 15-10. 

Gossip, wfll meanwhile, 
continue whether Martin 
Dew, a ringleader of the 
petition against Jake Downey, 
the England manager, will be 
playing for England m the 
Europeans as welj as the 
Thomas Cup. Dew is defend- 
ing two doubles titles in the 
individual event and it would 
be a conspicuous absence to 
have him sitting it out when 
England's defence of the team 
title begins tomorrow. 

We may know today wheth- 
er Downey has asked him for 
England’s men's or mixed 
doubles or both (though not 
singles, as was incorrectly 
stated before). We may also 
then know whether the talent- 
ed left-hander will refuse to 
play for his country.

Pritchard, who had agreed 
to switch places less than two 
weeks ago with Broughton, 
from No 6 to stroke, for the 
benefit of the boat, had for the 
first time in three races been 
able to see the whole Oxford 
boat after a mile. His face 
thereafter had the serenity of a 
chauffeur in a Rolls, immune 
from stress. “I was just stir- 
ring the tea while others did 
the work,” be said. “When 
Oxford were alongside early 
on, they were crashing the 
water bat not really moving,” 
At the finish. Green, Oxford's 
cox, had 'banged the water 
angrily with his fists, but the 
gesture was hollow. There had

FOOTBALL- UNCROWNED KINGS OF THE SOUTH STRIDE OUT OF THE SHADOWS 

Hammers knock on the door 


By Stuart Jones, Football Correspondent 


The English champions are 
likely to be crowned at the end 
of the season at Goodison 
Park. There is nothing new in 
that suggestion. Howard 
KendalTs side have been the 
favourites to retain the title for 
two months, ever since they 
overtook Manchester United, 
who were once threatening to 
have claimed it themselves by 
now. 

But Everton should be 
aware that the boor and a half 
of domestic glory that suppos- 
edly awaits them may lie 
within Wembley on May 3, 
FA Cup Final day, rather than 
in their own home 48 hours 
later. Their visitors on May 5 
are a side that stepped omi- 
nously out of the shadows on 
Saturday afternoon. 

West Ham United were as 
dazzlingty brilliant as the re- 
flection of the floodlights in 
the Stamford Bridge puddles. 
Chelsea, considered by some 
to be London's most realistic 
challengers, were not merely 
beaten 4-0: they were utterly 
overwhelmed. 

John Hollins, Chelsea's 
manager, had no complaints. 
“You can't have any when 


you lose to a better side,” he 
said. “They took the initiative 
virtually from the kick-off and 
never eased off. They pun- 
ished us for every mistake we 
made and, in Devonshire and 
Ward, they have much more 
than just wingers. They are 
also match-winners.” 

So are Cottee, who was 
voted the players’ young play- 
er of the year a week ago^and 
McAvennie. Between them 
they claimed three of West 
Ham's goals, all of which were 
stunning. The second, a 
counter-attack that flowed like 
mercury through Pike, Parris, 
Devonshire, Dickens, Parris 
again and eventually Cottee, 
has surely not been surpassed 
this season. 

“That was a bit special,” 
John Lyall admitted. “The 
tain helped our traditional 
one-touch football particular- 
ly in a local darby that could 
have been physical. In the 
second half in particular, J 
thought our play was of a veiy, 
very high quality. On days like 
that, when everything goes 
right, we can beat anybody.” 

Even if they do not enjoy 
many more days like that 


between now and the advent 
of May, they could still go to 
Goodison Park to decide the 
destiny of the championship. 
With a dozen Canon League 
games left,- then* maximum 
possible total of points is 93, a 
figure thaLonly Everton oould 
match. 

Fatigue remains an obvious 
danger. Five of their fixtures, 
for instance, are to be 
squeezed into the last 10 days 
of their heavy schedule. But 
on eight occasions, beginning 
today against Tottenham 
Hotspur, they will stay at 

More football. Page 30 

home and only once will they 
collide with a representative 
from the leading group. Thai 
happens to be Chelsea in a 
fortnight 

Jf Newcastle United had 
achieved the draw at 
Goodison Park that they came 
so close to on Saturday, the 
threat to Everton from West 
Ham would be even greater. A 
goal by Richardson earned 
Everton their 1-0 victory, but 
for Newcastle Gascoigne bit 
the post with rate shot and 


lifted the ball over an empty 
net with another, and Beards- 
ley missed his third successive 
penalty. 

Yet five of Everton’s re- 
maining eight matches are 
away from home. Without the 
injured Southall to protect 
them, they must visit Man- 
chester United this afternoon 
and then, within three 
Arsenal and Watford. In 
tween they have the substan- 
tial distraction of having to 
take on Sheffield Wednesday 
in - the semi-final of the FA 
Cap, for which they have 
recruited Pat Jennings from 
Tottenham Hotspur as cover 
for Minims in goaL 
Similar flaws can be seen in 
the claims of the other main 
contenders. Liverpool, as well 
as being involved in the other 
semi-final against Southamp- 
ton* have only three more 
outings ar AnfiekL 
The recent form of Man- 
chester United, now perhaps 
stabilized by the return of 
Bryan Robson, has been far 
too inconsistent. 

Chelsea, almost devoid of 
mine creativity in midfield, 
the hardest mn-in of all. 


Mize establishes 
a suitable lead 

From Mitchell Platts, Ponte Vedra, Florida 


Larry Mize moved into the 
final round of the Tourna- 
ment Players’ Championship 
here yesterday with a four- 
stroke lead. Mize, aged 27, 
from Georgia, established an 
astonishing record for the 
TPC by compiling a 1 6-under- 
par aggregate of 200. 

John Mahafiey, who won 
the US PGA Championship in 
1 979, was Mize’s nearest rival. 
Mahaffey’s total of 204 left 
him four shots ahead of Tim 
Simpson and Bob Murphy, his 
fellow Americans. 

Mahafiey has revealed that 
his career was almost ended 
by a problem with alcohol, “I 
did not have mud] of a 
future,” he said. “I headed for 
the bars while others headed 
for the practice range. It was a 
case or stop or it ruining my 
life. 1 could never take just one 
or two drinks — I needed 
another and another.” 
Mahafiey slim, fit and sun- 
tanned, can joke now about 
his former addiction. 

Meanwhile Sandy Lyle's 
prime concern during the 
Greater Greensboro Open* 


which starts on Thursday, will 
be to recover his putting 
touch. He said: “I have struck 
the ball from tee to green so far 
this season as well as I can. But 
I am not scoring well and that 
is the result of bad putting. It 
really is beginning to hurt to 
the point where I am getting 
knotted up inside worrying 
when I am going to start 
holing some putts again.” 

Nick Faldo most win in 
Greensboro to obtain the last 
place in the US Masters. “If 
would, of course, turn my 
whole year around if I did 
that. It is asking a lot after 
almost two years without a 
victory. I know one thing. I 
will not be holding back. It's 
all or nothing”

Budd loses 
in Italy 

Lynn Jennings, of the Unit- 
edStates, beat Zola Budd, of 
Britain, in a cross-country race 
in San Vittore Olona, Italy, on 
Saturday. Jennings, beaten 
twice by Budd, the world 
champion, last weekend, took 
the lead in the 148-mile event 
about 300 hundred yards from 
the fiqish. 

Budd, who usually com- 
petes barefoot, had to wear 
running shoes to deal with the 
rocks on a course that ran 
through a forest. Jennings’s 
winning time was 17 m in 27 
sec, which was 5sec ahead of 
Budd.

Hull Kingston Rovers. 24 
Leeds 24 


The most dramatic and 
exciting semi-final In the 
history of the Challenge Cup 
ended in c tiff-hanging sus- 
pense with the perfect result.

unpredictable twists and

kick at goal from the final try j 
which would have given 
Leeds victory.

crowd of nearly 24,000 knew .
