yesterday when the first of 
three Americans held captive 
for almost 18 months was 
released outside the ruins of 
the old, bombed US Embassy 
in west Beirut 
But the package deal by 
which the American Govern- 
ment hopes to secure the 
freedom of at least two — and 
possibly five - more of its 
citizens in the hands of Shia 
Muslim groups, appears to 
have forced Washington into a 
series of concessions, includ- 
ing the virtual closure of the 
US Embassy in east Beirut 
President Assad of Syria, 
who spent much of Saturday 
closeted with the Ir anian For-

at Laiwca airport in Cyprus

that one of th«n might have

Mr Kenneth Baker, the

The Government has de- 
cided to abandon its plan to 
remove foe right to jury trial 
for cases of petty theft. 

• The move was backed by 
Lord Hailsham of St Maryle- 
bone, the Lord Chancellor, as 
a means of relieving foe

time is spent on minor theft 
cases. 

The possibility of dropping 
jury trial for such cases was 
raised in a government 
consolation paper published 
with its White Paper on 
criminal justice. 

But ministers decided last 
I week that foe proposal was too

Mr Douglas Hurd, the 
Home Secretary, is addressing 
Conservative lawyers tonight, 
in which he will describe the 
contents of foe Bill. 

But one issue on which Mr 
Hurd will be unable to en- 
lighten his audience will be his 
efforts to allay public concern 
about unduly lenient 
sentencing. 

He has taken to a Cabinet

‘Potent’ 
new drug 
for Aids 
in tests 

By Thomson Prentice 

A new drug, which promises 
to be foe most effective treat- 
ment against acquired im- 
mune deficiency sydnrome 
(Aids) under development, is 
being tested in British 
laboratories. 

The drug could be offered to 
some Aids patients in Britain 
within the nett two years as 
part of its first clinical trials if 
foe current tests are successful 
The drug, called human 
immune virus antiviral 
(Hiva), is being developed by 
Porton International, foe bio- 
technology group, in colla- 
boration with the Department 
of Health’s Centre for Applied 
Microbiology and Research 
(CAMR), Wiltshire. 

The compound is obtained 
by extraction from a micro- 
organism and appears to at- 
tack the enzy me which allows 
foe Aids virus to replicate. It 
also seems to hail the spread 
of the virus from cell to cell 
The researchers claim that 
tests so far have shown the 
compound to be “many times 
more active against foe virus 
than alt current products”. 

Dr Zsolt Harsanyi, Porton’s 
chief executive in the United 
States, said: “From our lab- 
oratory tests it looks to be the 
most potent inhibitor of Aids 
virus replication so far 
described.” 

The anti-viral was discov- 
ered at the University of 
California two years ago and 
rights to it were acquired by 
Porton earlier this year. In a 
technology-transfer arrange- 
ment, the group is developing 
foe compound and will have 
commercial rights to all prod- 
ucts and processes developed 
at the CAMR centre. 

The drug is now being tested 
on animals to assess its toxic- 
ity. Dr Derk Layton. Pbrtoa’s 
joint chief executive, said: 
“We think it reasonable to 
look towards human testing in 
one or two years but it could 
be sooner. 

“These trials will be con- 
ducted simultaneously in 
Britain and foe United States. 
A lot of hospitals in Britain 
have already been in contact 
with us about il” 

Porton scientists believe foe 
drug could be more effective 
than AZT. foe compound 
developed by foe WeUcome 
Foundation in foe US, which 
has shown remarkable results 
in Aids patient trials. 

They also believe that it 
would be easier to produce 
Hiva in bulk than AZT, which 
is in short supply because of 
its complex structure and 
production problems. 

According to a study pub- 
lished in the US last month, 
the total number of Aids cases 
will reach 4.7 million in the 
next 10 years. In Britain, 
deaths from Aids could Teach 
20,000 to 40.000 a year in 10 
io 20 years from now. accord- 
ing to another study.

Fingerprint security 

A device that can identify fin ge rprints quickly and 
accurately as a check for security purposes has been 
developed by Dr Peter Denyer of Edinburgh University. 

At the mo m ent , plastic cards and secret p e r sona l identity 
numbers are nsed to withdraw cash from bank e«li point 
machines or gain entry into high security areas. The 
problem is that the card and the ■ntihyr does not identify 
who is holding die card. 

Dr Denyer’s device carries a gfa« plate on which the 
card ^h older places a thumb or finger. 11 k electronics scan 
the fingerprint and compare it with a genuine print.

Two children dw of liver 
disease every week because 
of a shortage of donors and 
funds for transplant 
operations. 

Now a group of parents 
has launched a donor 
reanttmg campaign, called 
lifeline South, led by Mr 
Peter Maguire and his wifr 
Margaret from Hamp- 
shire. whose daughter Ju- 
lie, aged five (right) is 
waiting for a transplant. 

At least £1 million is said 
to be needed for medical 
equipment, research, 
trained staff and other 
facilities at Addenbrookes 
Hospital in Cambridge. 

Teachers may strike 

Ballot forms for possible strike action over Miss 
Maureen McGoMrick, the suspended headteacher, have 
been circulated to members of the National Union of 
Teachers in the north London borough of Brent. 

The council has refused to reinstate Miss McGoUrickin 
spite of a High Court decision which ruled that it had acted 
improperly in disciplining her. She had been exonerated by 
governors at Sudbury Infants School after allegedly 
making a racist remark over the telephone.

Yoong men who try to buy a

cannot afford to buy one on 
their own may be refused 
mortgage insurance by com-

homosexual and run the risk

-■ -r “We would now look at any 
"i :■ ‘ joint purchase where two 
males are involved,” Mr John 
■ Talar, head of the business 
department at Scottish Life 
- Assurance, said. 


By Jm Shearman 
“We would consider, them, 
but we would ask both for an 
examination, a medical atten- 
dance report, and find out the 
background to the case for a 
joint purchase.” 

Single men, aged between 
35 and 40, askim for high 
sums to be insured, have also 
been put on Scottish Life's 
high rak lisL “One has to say 
that although it is not un- 
common to.be single, most 
people in that age group are 
usually either married or have 
been married,” 

If these men wanted to 
insure .sums over £100,000 
they would be asked to attend 
a examination, Mr 

Talac said. But he admitted 

that this sum was approaching 
the amount where a medical 
report would auto matically be 
required.

By Frances Gibb, Legal Afina CJemspo^cnt 


A group of barristers who a] 
look control of the Bar Coud- k 
cil, the banisters' executive fc 
body* last year, under the It 
refonning slogan, Campaign 
for the Bar, are to field more £ 
candidates in elections for the i 
new general council- \ 

The elections this month c 
will be for aB 90 members of j 
the new governing body, the * 
General Council of the Bar, 1 
created after a report by Lord j 
Rawlmson, QC, which wQI | 
come into force on January 1. 

The general council wifi 
replace the Bar Council and 
the senate of the Inns of Court. 
For the first time, judges and 
benchers representing the four 
inns will be excluded. There 
will also be better representa- 
tion for the young ana provin- 
cial barristers, with only the 
practising Bar eligible to 
stand. • 

The campaign group, which 

won 62 per cent of the 14,000 
votes cast last year, was 
elected on a ticket of radic al - 
reform and a more aggressive, 
trade-union-like stance. 

Under Mr Robert Alexan- 
der, QC, the present Bar 
chairman, who is succeed e d 
by Mr Peter Scott, QC, on 
January 1, most of their 
concerns have been met. Bui 
Mr Malcolm Fortune, foe 
group's spokesman, sai d yes- 
terday there were still matters 
to be tackled. “If 1985-86 was 
a watershed in Bar politics,

High-priced docklands 
property to subsidize 
inner Cltv regeneration 


proi 

Lon 


An ambitious scheme to 
wide high-priced homes in 
ndon's Docklands which 
will help to subsidize lower 
priced shared ownership 
bouses and rented accom- 
modation is being considered 
by the London Docklands 
Development Corporation 
(LDDQ. 

The scheme could be app- 
lied in all parts of the country 
which have a problem with 
urban or inner city regenera- 
tion. It would involve the 
public and private sectors 
combining in a way that both 
the Government and the 
Prince of Wales, after his 
comments on housing last 
week, would approve. 

Known as SHARE, Social 
Housing Asset Renewal Ex- 
change, the proposed scheme 
for the London borough of 
Tower Hamlets is the idea of 
Assured Developments, a 
non-profit making organiza- 
tion which is a co-venture by a 
team of architects and 
professionals. 

The concept has the hill 
support of Mr John Patten, 
the Minister of Housing; 
Tower Hamlets also favours 
it, and it is being put out to 
tender with four other 
schemes by the LDDG 

Under the plan for a prime 
riverside site on the Isle of 
Dogs, a total of 275 flats 


would be bttilt at foil marVpf 
value, with the generated sur- 
plus, forecast in the region of 
£5 million, used to fund the 
rehabilitation of 1,000 run- 
down inner city homes with- 
out cost to the local authority. 
It already has die backing of a 
leading building society. 

The essence of die scheme is 
a balance, on a four to one 
ratio, of low and high cost 
homes. 

That is based on the shared 
ownership properties bring 



x 





sold at a price affordable by 
those on average wwwiwg^ 
living in Tower Hamlets, 
about £7,00045,000, meaning 
properties at around £20,000- 
£21,000. 

The scheme has been devel- 
oped by Mr Alan Edgar, a 
director of Assured Develop- 
ments, and sprang from the 
knowledge dial local authori- 
ties were finding it impossible 
to undertake repairs and 
improvements to their prop- 
erty after cutbacks in public 
sector finance. 


The formula involves non- 
profit makin g agencies, such 
as housing associations, carry- 
ing out high value develop- 
ments in high cost areas. 
Profits are then ploughed back 
to subsidize the budding of 
new homes, or improvement 
of existing properties, for 
shared ownership or rent 

Mr Kd jjpr said t hat in 
London, in particular, local 
people were bring priced out 
of the market because of high 
cost pressure created by more 
and more people wishing to 
live in the attractive housing 
projects emerging near the 
Thames. He added that this 
new balanced approach o£ 
feted a solution to help people 
on average earnings to find a 
home. 

He believed that the 
combination of a non-profit 
making developer and 
public/private sector partner- 
ships, is die key to success 

“Our scheme win be 
particularly attractive to peo- 
ple living in run-down council 
estates Additionally, as in 
Docklands, the concept could 
be applied not only elsewhere 
in London and the South-east, 
hut also on a smaller scale in 
other parts of die country 
which have a problem with 
urban or inner city 
regeneration.” 


Court battle over levy 



A county court challenge 
may force left-wing Sheffield 
district councillors to aban- 
don their policy of levying a 
special tax against council 
home buyers. 

In a lest case, which is 1 
closely followed by the 5,1 
people who have so fir 
successfully cleared admin- 
istrative hurdles set up by the 
council to obstruct home 
ownership, one buyer is 
contesting the council’s right 
to impose amenity charges on 
new owners. 

Another 150 summonses 
are outstanding, some alleging 
non-payment of the charges 
since they were introduced in 
1981. 

Bills averaging £23 per - 
annum have been received by 
council house owners to cover 
grass cutting, landscaping, 
maintenance of communal . 


By Ian Smith 

television aerials and neigh- 
bourhood garage blocks. 

The council, led by. Mr 
David Btankett, member of 
the Labour National Exec- 
utive Council, argues the costs 
are already built m to coundl 
house rents, so tenants who 
have opted for private owner- 
ship must now contribute to 
maintenance out of their own 
pockets. 

But members of the Right to 
Association, set up to 
it what they describe as a 
financial obstruction imposed 
only to dissuade home buyers, 
say they will go to prison 
rather than pay. 

They have sought support 
from Mr John Patten, the 
Minister for Housing, and 
received a letter of support, in 
which Mr Patten describes the 
council levy as “blatant 
intimidation” and promises 


the backing of the D e p a rt me n t 
of Environment in the assoc- 
iation's legal battle: 

Only about 200 borne own- 
ers have so far paid the levy 
and in almost every case, the 
association says, it is becanse 
the owners are rideriy couples 
frightened of legal repercus- 
sions. 

The association also points 
to what it describes as a 
farcical anomaly dating back 
to 1984, when for 12 months 
Conservative councillors won 
control of the district auth- 
ority from Labour for the first 
time in half a century. 

During their brief period in 
office, the Tories dropped the 
levy, which now means one 
owner may face no mainte- 
nance bills while his next door 
neighbour faces court action 
for refusing to pey. 


Hope for Bonnie Prince Charlie’s hideaway 



Two successful business- 
men have dedicated their lives 
to restoring a derelict eigh- 
teenth-century house on the 
Isle of Skye where Scottish 
heroine Flora MacDonald at- 
tempted to hide Bonnie Prince 
Charlie. 

Mougstot House, in the 
remote Highlands of the Inner 
Hebrides, was the home of the 
chief of the MacDonald clan. 
Sir Alexander MacDonald, 
and it was to there that Flora 
fled “Over the Sea to Skye” 
with the Stuart Young Pre- 
tender to the British crown 
after the battle of Culloden in 
1745. 

Mr Robert MacLuaidh and 
Mr James MacQueen were 
driven by that famous last line 
of the Skye boat song, sung by 
man y children from the nurs- 
ery upwards, to search for 
their ancestry on an island 
steeped in history. 

After the battle Flora and 
the Prince, who was dressed as 
a maid, travelled over the 
Scottish Highlands for several 
weeks before sailing from Uist 
in the Outer Hebrides to Skye 


Skye ballad inspires 
scheme to repair ruin 


By Angelin Johnson 


to seek 


from Sir 


bell 

Alexander’s wife. Lady Mar- 
garet. She did not share her 
husband's love for the English 
and was a secret Jacobite 
supporter. 

That journey is now an 
established part of Scottish 
folklore, captured in the song 
written by Harold Edwin 
Boulton in 1 884. and popular- 
ized by the local fishing 
community: 

Speed, bonnie boat, like a 
bird on the wing 

Onwards the sailors cry: 

Carry the lad that's bom to 
be King 

Over the sea to Skye. 

The Prince foiled to wrest 
the crown from King George 
U and fled to France. Flora is 
buried in the local churchyard, 
which is a favourite pil- 
grimage fortoarists. 


James MacQueen, a member of the family that supplied 
Bonnie Prince Charlie with the boat be used to flee from 
Skye after the failure of the 1745 rebellion, with his son, 
Robert, outside the roofless Mougstot House, Skye, which 
he and his partner, Mr Robert MacLuaidh, plan to repair 
(Photograph: Tom Kidd). Inset: the bouse in 1954, 

For three centuries the 
MacQueens were the official 
armourers and blacksmiths 
for the MacDonald Clan on 
the island. It was a taxman 
called Archibald MacQueen 
•who provided the boat on 
which the Prince eventually 
escaped foam Skye on his way 
to France. 

Mr MacLuaidh and Mr 
MacQueen, horrified at the 
way Mougstot House had 
been left at the mercy of the 
cutting wind from the Minch 
Sea, set up a trust to save the 
place associated with one of 
the major turning-points in 
the history of Scotland. 

The house was occupied 
over the years by different 
crofter families until 1956. 

The Mougstot Cans Trust 
plans to raise £50,000 to create 
a period village depicting 
Gaelic culture by refurbishing 
the house, farm buildings and 
surrounding cottages. 

The only obstacle at the 
moment is persuading the 
local crofters who are tenants 
on the land, to back tire 
project. 


When Mr MacLuaidh, aged 
40, visited Skye last April in 
search ofhis family roots - his 
ancestors had fought in the 
battle of Culloden - he was 
enchanted by its nigged land- 
scape and remote beauty. 

He said: “I came here 
looking for a link with the past 
and grew to love the simple 
old-world atmosphere of the 
area, with its tenant crofters 
and wild countryside.” 

He resigned his directorship 
of a construction company in 
Edinburgh and remained on 
the island. 

Soon afterwards he met Mr 
MacQueen, aged 45, a joiner 
from Lancaster, who bad 
moved to Skye in 1981 be- 
cause of what he described as 
“an invisible pul) to my roots” 
after he suffered several coro- 
nary attacks. 


Computer sale 
boosts health 
group budget ! 

By Keith Hindley 
The sale by Trent Regional: 
Health Authority (TRHA) of. 
computer programs it has* 
developed has boosted its 
patient care budget by more., 
than £20,000. V 

TRHA software is now ire 
use at 40 national health! 
service installations and has 
been selected by the RAF fop 
its hospital management sys^ 
tern at RAF Hallon. f 

Last Easter, the Trent 
authority made agreements, 
with Isiel Lid, of Redditch,. 
Hereford and Worcester, and 
Silicon Lab. of Birmingham;' 
to adapt and market various 
TRHA software packages^ 
They have been “exported” tar 
six of the other 13 regions irt 
England, and to Scotland. T 
The commercial partner*’ 
ship has brought other bene- 
fits. “The effort saved by these 
deals has made the benefits: 
available to our district staff 
much earlier than if we half; 
used our own resources," th^ 
Trent computer manager, M$

Finding information in some 
business directories, can be like 
finding a needle in a haystack. 

Business Pages however, has 
been carefully designed to solve 
business problems* not create 
them 

• For example* when you know 
the name of a company, but not 
the address and telephone num- 
ber, you'll find the information 
under alphabetical listings 
And Business. Rages has more 


listings than most of its larger 
competitors 

There's also an identical in- 
dfc Montand back. 

^ whichever end of the 
book> istart, you'll find 
what you're looking for And 
to saveyou time, we've design- 
ed a useful 14sectorformat. 
(Under 'Building and Con- 
struction' for example, you'll 
find everything from drain- 
age pipes, to chimneys) 


Business Pages is published in 
seven convenient geographi-

mercial centres in Britain. 

If you're based in one 
of these areas every year we'll 
send you your first local copy

Though you may not realise it, a lot of life 
assurance companies have shareholders. 

And like it or not, those shareholders will get 
a chunk of the profit that’s made from your 
money. They can get their teeth into as much as 
10%, so it could cost you thousands . of pounds 
when your policy matures. 

At Scottish Amicable, we believe strongly 
that you should be the one who gains from your 
investment. That’s why we’re a mutual company 
with no shareholders.

Few mourn death of a 
scourge of the Jews 

From Roger Bayes, Warsaw 

General Mieczyslaw Moo- 
Tar, aged 72, one of the most 
persistent contenders for the 
Polish leadership and an ar- 
chitect of the virulent anti- 
Semitic purges of 1968, died 
on Friday night, mourned by 
few. , . 

The politician, who was 
being treated at a special 
Interior Ministry hospital m 
Warsaw, died of leukemia. 

Despite the past ideological 
feuds between the current par- 
ty leadership and Mr Moczar, 
the television news gave a 
surprisingly full tribute to the 
former security police official. 

Mr Moczar, a pre-war Com- 
munist, fought in partisan 
units against the Germans and 


emerged after the war as secret 
police chief in Lodz; a major 
textile producing city in cen- 
tral Poland. In 1943 he was 
briefly a Deputy Minister of 
Security, but his police — and 
his party — career took off 
after 1956 when he was first 
deputy, then foil Interior 
Minister. 

From this power base— and 
drawing on the support of the 
War Veterans Association — 
he challenged Mr Wladyslaw 
Gomulka for power, stirring 
up a crude anti-Semitic cam- 
paign to embarrass the party 
chief in 1968. Thousands of 
Polish Jews and liberal think- 
ers lost their jobs or were 
forced into emigration. 


Superpowers meeting to test wills 


From Andrew McEwen 
Vienna 

The first test of tite poStical 
will of the superpowers to 
build on the Reykjavik founda- 
tions will take place in Vienna 
this week. 

The European Conference 
on Security and Co-operation, 
which opens tomorrow, 
Mr George 
the US Secretary of 
State, and Ins Soviet counter- 
part, Mr Eduard 
Shevardnadze, for the first 
time since their leaders parted 
without a handshake m Ice- 
fond. 

By Thursday night, they 
wffll hare held at least one and 
possibly two sessions of talks, 
and may well have set foe tone 
for the coming months. 

American officials regard 
foe Vienna encounter as a 
“weatbervane”, while Soviet 
diplomatic sources view it as 
“very important”. The most 


could refresh the of 

the Geneva negotiators. 

For the foreign ministers of 
33 other nations, gathering for 
the conference opening, it 
offers hope of ranch-needed 
clarification: three weeks of 
contradictory statements from 
Moscow and Washington have 
left many diplomats wonder- 
ing precisely what was 
achieved at Reykjavik. 

Initial optimism that Presi- 
dent Reagan and Mr Gor- 
bachov had changed the 
course of East-West negotia- 
tions, even tf agreement eluded 
them, faded as differences of 
in te ip ret atiop multiplied. 

There has been a notable 
lack of Soviet action in Ge- 
neva. While the US has tabled 
its proposals at the strategic 
arras talks, Mr Viktor Karpov, 
foe chief Soviet arms nego- 
tiator, has been absent. 

In Washington there has 
been a dispute as to whether 
President Reagan agreed in 
Iceland that all nuclear weap- 
ons should be scrapped over 10 
years, or only afi ballistic 
issOes (retaining nuclear 
bombs and shells). The 
able answer is that he; 
his private derive for 



Mr Eduard Shevardnadze, the Soviet Foreign Minister and his wife, Nanuli Raschdeoowa, 
arriving in Vienna yesterday for the CSCE confere n ce, 
nuclear-free world to be dear SS 20s and American cruise unstated “dream dement* 1 in 


to Mr Gorbachov. 

The confusion has been 
compounded by a lack of 
unanimity within Nate. White 
publicly offering President 
Reagan every support, Euro- 
pean allies are less than 
convinced. 

The British Government is 
willing to accept an agreement 
to scrap all inter mediate 
unclear missiles - Soviet 


and Pershing 2 weapons — on 
the basis that the benefits 
outweigh the risksJt also sup- 
ports the US proposal for 
reductions of strategic weap- 
ons to 1,600 launchers and 
6,000 warheads. 

However, there is concern in 
Whitehall that while foe 
stated US position is accept- 
ably cautious, at least during 
the five years, there is an 


President Reagan's thinking. 

His dream is thought to be 
similar to Mr Gorbachov's 
aim for a noctear-free world, 
with the difference that the 
President sees the 
Defence Initiative (SDI) as l 
guarantor against unclear 
“cheating”. 

Mrs Thatcher is expected to 
remind the President at their 
Camp David meeting this 


mouth that she considers a 
nuclear-free world to be an 
unrealistic aim for foe for- 
seeabte future. 

The Government believes a 
30 per cent cut in strategic 
weapons feasible and a 50 per 
cent cut possible, bat complete 
elimination Of missile defences 
would leave Western Europe 
vulnerable to superior Soviet 
conventional forces. It is rd oc- 
tant to take at face value 
Soviet proposals for vast cuts 
in conveatiora] forces from the 
Atlantic to the Urals. 

If the Russians really 
wanted such comprehensive 
disarmament, they would bare 
demonstrated good faith at the 
MBFR (mutual balanced force 
redactions) talks in Vienna, It 
is argued. 

The thorniest Issue remains 
foe one on which the Reyk- 
javik folks foundered - the 
interpretation of the 1972 
ABM (anti-ballistic missile) 
Treaty. The Soviets Insist on a 
narrow definition, leaving the 
Americans free to test laser 
weapons in lira laboratory but 
not in space. 

Presklent Reagan's rejec- 
tion of this demand on the 
grounds that it would block 
development of SDL coupled 
with Mr Gorbachov's position 
tint there could be no package 
agreement without it, ted to 
deadlock. 

Immediately after Reyk- 
javik, it appeared that there 
had been a misunderstanding. 
Mr Karpov, visiting London, 
told the press that an agree- 
ment could be made sepa- 
rately. later there was a 
change of tone: such a deal 
could be negotiated, but not 
signed until there was a pack- 
age indnding SDI. 

A high British official now 
believes it was Mr Karpov who 
misunderstood and that there 
was no deliberate plan to 
spread confusion. 


that “laboratory" could be 
defined as an land-based test- 
ing, but this would not satisfy 
the Administration. One rea- 
son is that this would leave 
Soviet scientists free to con- 
tinue their own laser weapon 
tests, which are land-based. 


Reagan 
hopeful 
on arms 
control 

From Michael Bin yon 
Washington 

President Reagan said at the 
weekend that prospects for a 
strengthened peace between 
the US and the Soviet Union 
were better now than at any 
time in the past 40 years. 

He said he and Mr Gorba- 
chov made more progress in 
Iceland than their negotiators 
made in two years. “It’s no 
longer a matter of “if we 
reach agreement; it’s now a 
matter of “when,” he said. 

The two leaders made “ma- 
jor gains" in addressing key 
issues, and the US was now 
building on these. Everything 
the US proposed at Iceland 
was still on the table - Wash- 
ington was ready to move for- 
ward on a 50 per cent cut in 
strategic forces, on eliminat- 
ing intermediate-range mis- 
siles in Europe and on scrap- 
ping ballistic missiles on both 
sides during the next decade. 

Mr Reagan said he had 
asked Mr George Shultz, the 
US Secretary of State, to 
discuss ihese and other issues 
with Mr Eduard Shevardnad- 
ze, the Soviet Foreign Minis- 
ter. when the two meet in 
Vienna this week. 

“Every time our countries 
meet we have that opportu- 
nity. We will use this meeting 
to solidify and advance the 
progress we made," President 
Reagan said. His optimistic 
assessment is clearly timed to 
encourage voters to support 
his Administration^ foreign 
policies. 

• MOSCOW: Pravda ac- 
cused the US Administration 
yesterday of depending on the 
“billions of dollars" profits 
generated by the arms race (A 
Correspondent writes). The 
paper said this was dem- 
onstrated by the US commit- 
ment to SDI. 


GM faces 
tough 
demands 

From Ray Kennedy 
Johannesburg 

A tough list of conditions 
for multinational companies 
disinvesting from South Af- 
rica was issued yesterday .by 
unions representing nearly 
3,000 strikers at the Port 
Elizabeth plant of US-owned 
General Motors. 

The strike, which began on 
Wednesday, is over GM*s 
plans to puB out of South 
Africa and hand its operation 
over to local management. 

In a joint statement yes- 
terday the National Auto- 
mobile and Allied Workers' 
Union, which represents two- 
thuds of the strikers, the 
Metal and Allied Workers’ 
Union and the Motor In- 
dustry Combined Workers’ 
Union declared that job ten- 
ure should not suffer when 
firms withdraw from foe 
country but rather the com- 
panies' profits should “hear 
the brunt erf apartheid." 

GM, foe unions said, had 
drawn profits for 60 years and 
now wanted to pull out at no 
cost to itself. 

Under foe terms of a ju- 
dicial order granted to GM, 
foe unions have until early 
today to show cause why the 
strike should not be declared 
unlawful. If they fail to do so 
GM will he tolly entitled to 
dismiss the sinkers. 

Mr Bob White, foe manag- 
ing director of GM in Port 
Elizabeth, has denied unions’ 
claim that they have not been 
consulted about foe handover 
to local management and says 
the firm is doing everything 
possible to preserve jobs and 
continuity erf employment 

Yesterday's statement by 
the unions was clearly aimed 
not only at GM but at other 
multinationals contemplating 
withdrawal

THE VOLKSWAGEN LT 31, 
AND HOW IT’S CURING 
A WASTING DISEASE. 


“You have to be strong inside to live alone 
stuck in a wheelchair on the top floor of a 
tower block. At one time I felt like a prisoner 
in my own home: I didn't get out for weeks 
on end. I got a bit fed up, though I still 
had Chad, my songbird, for company ” 

In Britain, one household in 
seven is inhabited by an old person 
living on their own. One old person 
in three has no close relative. It is easy 
to understand that loneliness, among the 
old, is epidemic 

“ After my husband died I felt I was just 
wasting away from loneliness. I used to just 
sit watching the shadows cross my sitting 
room wail. I knew / should be getting out 
and about more, but how ; and where to? 
It's not easy, not with a walking frame" 

For 20,000 old people every week 
that getting out and about is a Help the 
Aged minibus. 

Sometimes it’s their sole link with 
the community: 

“Honestly, before I drove this run I didn't 
know what gratitude meant I’ve taken 
people to the shops for the first time in 
3 years. One old man wondered what 
happened to the trams. Often you can see 
their health improve just from contact with 
the other people at the Day Centre, and the 
outside world ” 



Help the Aged have helped fund 250 
minibuses for voluntary groups to run. 
We support Day Centres, Day Hospitals, 
provide Emergency Alarm Systems and 
support hundreds of other simple, prac- 
tical projects that combat the frailty, 
isolation and loneliness millions suffer, 
just because they’re old. 

“ Old age takes away family, and friends, 
and your mobility, till there you are, just 
with the telly And not all of us like telly, 
you know t we prefer people ”

Argentina in search 
of anti-UK strategy 


From Ed 


CaS, Buenos Aires 


wgn 

Argentina. Uruguay and Bra- 
zil met yesterday to map out a 
common strategy in response 
to tbe British Government's 
decision to declare a 200-mile 
exclusion zone around the 
Falkland Islands. 

The session, near the Uru- 
guayan resort town of Puma 
del Este, ended a weekend of 
frantic diplomatic activity by 
the Argentine Government in 
its attempt to isolate Britain 
on the Falldands issue. 

Tbe Argentine Government 
has sent two high-ranking 
Foreign Ministry officials to 
explain its position to a num- 
ber of governments, including 
those of Spain, Italy, France, 
Holland, Algeria. and Zim- 
babwe. 

Tbe Foreign Minister, Se- 
hor Dante Caputo, who took 
part in the Punta del Este 
session yesterday, met the US 
Under-Secretary of State for 
Inter-American Affairs, Mr 
Elliott Abrams, on Saturday to 
discuss the Latest develop- 
ments. As was the case dining 
the Faiklands war, there is an 
underlying suspicion here that 
the US is supporting Britain 
despite Washington's claims 
to neutrality on the issue. 

At the weekend, Buenos 
Aires sent London a forma] 


protest Note in which it 
claimed that by declaring that 
Britain controlled a 200-mile 
fishing zone around die is- 
lands, Mrs Thatcher's Gov- 
ernment “had pre f erred to 
introduce a new factor of 
tension in the area that will 
lead to unforeseen consequ- 
ences. . 

“The responsibility for this 
situation will inexorably fell 
on the British Government, * 
the Note said. 

In a demonstration of na- 
tional unity the Argentine 
Senate late on Biday night 
ratified the fishing treaties 
between Argentina, die Soviet 
Union and Bulgaria, which 
authorize those countries to 


fish in the disputed zone, and 
which were the i 


origin of the 

current crisis. 

Approval of the treaties, 
which must still be passed by 
the Lower House here, was 
seen as vital in order to 
strengthen the Argentine pos- 
ition at international forums. 

But despite the stroi 
port the Government 
dent Raul Alfbnsin has 
received from political parties 
of all ideological shades, some 
prominent politicians have 
been critical of the Foreign 
Ministry's handling of the 
issue, especially with regard to 


Buenos Aires protests 
over fishing curbs 


By Nicholas Beeston 


Argentina officially pro- 
tested to Britain at die week- 
end and rejected the 150-mile 
fishing protection zone im- 
posed around the Falkland 
Islands last week. 

In a diplomatic note sent to 
the Foreign Office through the 
Argentine interests section of 
the Brazilian Embassy hi 
London, Argentina said tbe 
British move had “unfore- 
seeable" consequences. 


A Foreign Office 
man said only that die note 
was dmihf to tbe p w l wl 
statement released in Buenos 
Aires on Wednesday. 

Argentina claims sover- 
eignty over the Fafflands and 
their fishing grounds. 

Tbe British measures mean 
must be 
j the islands 
they can operate in 
their wains. 


tbe fishing pacts. The doubts 
were expressed daring a 
closed-door session on Friday 
between Senor Caputo and 
leading members of Congress; 

Tbe leader of the Centre 
Democratic Union, Senor 
Alvaro AJsogaray, said he had 
serious questions “about the 
manner in which the Foreign 
Ministry bad conducted the 
issue of tbe Falldands, and 
about foreign policy in 
general.” 

Other politicians too won- 
dered aloud whether the Gov- 
ernment had considered all 
the possible consequences of 
its fishing agreements .with 

* Moscow and Sofia. 

Senor Caputo has insisted 
that all possible British re- 
actions to the fishing treaties, 
which commit the Argentine 
Government to provide port 
facilities for the Soviet fishing 
trawlers, were carefully stud- 
ied. Nevertheless Buenos 
Aires was dearly surprised by 
the British measures and has 
sought numerous explana- 
tions for them, including pos- 
sible US involvement and 
Mrs Thatcher's internal politi- 
cal problems. 

The new military commit- 
tee set up last week m response 
to the British move met for 
the first time at the weekend. 
Fears have been raised that 
the committee, composed of 
the President, the Defence 
Minister and top military 
commanders, has given, the 
armed services a new prestige 
which they had lost following 
their defeat in the Falldands 
war. 

• Pern solidarity; President 
Alan Garcia- of Peru arrives in 
Buenos Aires today to bring “a 
message of support and 
solidarity” for Argentina’s 
stand on Britain's fisheries 
limit around the Falkland 
Islands, the Public Informs 
tion Secretariat said in a 
statement yesterday (Reuter 
reports).

Basle chemical fire hits 14 


From Aba McGregor 
Geneva 

Fourteen people were treat- 


ed in hospital after inhaling 


fumes released by a cbemii 
plant fire beside the Rhine at 
Basle on Saturday. 

Only “minute traces” of 
toxic chemicals have been de- 
tected in air, soil and water 
tests after the storage depot 
fire at the Sandoz Company's 
Scbwtdzerhalle plant 
Tbe smoke cloud billowing 
from explosions durum the 

which Spooked flames 

200 ft high, was dispersed by 
the wind as it passed over 
neighbouring West German 
and French territory. 

The “chemical catastrophe” 
alert obliging some 400,000 
people to remain in their 
homes with windows tightly 
dosed for four hours until it 
was lifted at breakfast time on 
Saturday, lift only a pungent 
odour — “like a mixture of 
rotten, ^gs and burning cof- 


fee" — and a Rhine tinted red 
by chemicals in the water from 
the hoses draining info the 
river. * t •• 

The depot contained 815 
tonnes of agricultural chemi- 
cals including pesticides. Ma- 
ny people experienced 
irritation of the throat and 
eyes, but the worst sufferers 
were fish, exterminated en 
masse near the plant. A fish 
farm lost its entire stock. . 

The stench and alarms woke 
people within a 12-mile ra- 
dius. Local radios broadcast a 
“stay indoors” warning. The 
plant is only three miles from 
the dry centre. 

Dunxig the alert Swiss cus- 
toms ornoexs on the nearby 
frontier wore gas mask*, 
motorways and the main sta- 
tion were dosed, and public 
transport suspended. 

It took 150 firemen seven 
hours to control the fire. 

• VIENNA: Seventeen peo- 
ple were lolled and 19 taken to 


hospital for emergency treat- 
ment after an aixaderit yester- 
day at a Bulgarian chemical 
plant near the Blade Sea port

of Sofia (Reuter reports). ~ 
There was so indication of 
how the people were killed or 
whether the accident-, 'had

The official Bulgarian news 
agency, BTA, saia a Govern-

had started to investigate foe 
accident and to hdpto put the 
works back into normal opera-

Opinion polls 
confounded as 

Sir Joh Works Peking 

From Robert Gneve 

Ms folksy spell j-Jsss 

_ _ _ . _ , the weekend that his Ch 

From Stephen Taylor, Sydney h«et« haH hi 


Sir Joh Bjelke-Petersen con- 
founded opinion polls and the 
media at the weekend, and 
confirmed Ms status as the 
most successful of Australian 
politicians by winning an 
election which, unless mortal- 
ity intervenes, will extend his 
premiership of Queensland to 
21 years. 

Sir Job's victory was an 
emphatic rejection by the 
electorate of allegations of 
'corruption within his Na- 
tional Party administration. 

The 75-year old peanut 
-farmer's victory was even 
more dear-cut than in his last 
great triumph, 1983, when he 
broke an alliance of >5 years 
with the Liberal Party and, 
despite dire warnings of catas- 
trophe, won power in his own 
right-Once again, the “Sir 
Job" phenomenon has been 
demonstrated to defy an 
known opinion polls. 

The devoutly conservative 
premier, who has nwA» his 
political life a crusade against 
‘“creeping socialism" in cen- 
tral government, said the re- 
sult meant the end was in sight 
for the Hawke Labor Govern- 
ment 

“Our assault on Canberra 
begins tonight," be said. The 
victory would “give people in 
other states some hope of 
regaining freedom and over- 
coming socialism” 

“The message for Mr 


Hawke is make the best of it 
while you are there, because 
you won't be there fix' much 
longer,” he said. 

In the end, the notorious 
Queensland gerrymander — 
which concentrates voting 
power in the conservative 
fanning areas which support 
Sir Joh — had less of a 
distorting effect on the out- 
come than had been the case 
in the past 

With 80 percent of the vote 
counted by last night die 
indication was that the Na- 
tionals had increased their 
share of the vote by 0.4 per 
cent to 39.4 per cent 
The party is expected to have 
between 48 and 51 seats in the 
new 89-seat parliament 

The Labor Party again re- 
ceived the highest percentage 
of votes — around 41.8 per 
cent although this was 2.5 per 
cent down on 1983. Mr Nev- 
ille Warburton. who became 
the seventh Labor leader to be 
seen off by Sir Job, said there 
was something wrong when a 
party could rain an absolute 
majority with the support of 
less than four out of 1 0 voters. 

The biggest loser was the 
Liberal party, which had 
seemed resurgent in opinion 
polls and had been tipped to 
hold the balance of power in a 
hung parliament The increase 
in the Liberal vote by 2 per 
cent to 16.4 per cent was for 
less than forecast 


From Robert Grieves 
Peking 

Signor Bettino Craxi, the 
Italian Prime Minister, said at 
the weekend that his Chinese 
hosts bad questioned him at 
length about Italy’s involve- 
ment in the US Strategic 'De- 
fence Initiative. - 

Italy was the fourth country 
to join the US in Star Wars 
research, after Britain. West 
Germany Israel. Hrina 
has so for refused to partici- 
pate. 

Signor Craxi said Chinese 
officials told him they were 
uncomfortable with the Amer- 
ican pursuit of Star Wars 
since, m their view, the Soviet 
Union will soon be forced to 
engage in similar research. 

The Italian Prime Minister 
said the Chinese also reiter- 
' ated their position that they, 
along with the nations of 
Western and Eastern Europe, 
should pursue a foreign policy 
that is independent of the poli- 
cies of the two superpowers. 

Mr Zhao Ziyang, the Chi- 
nese Premier, said China res- 
pected Italy's achievements in 
the international arena. “Italy 
has made active contributions 
in promoting European unity, 
relaxing wood tension, pursu- 
ing disarmamen t and in main- 
taining stability in the Medit- 
erranean,” Mr Zhao said. 

Signor Craxi described Mr 
Deng Xiaoping, aged 82, 
China's senior leader, as act- 


vdth energy”. He praised Mr 
Deng for China’s new “highly 
pragmatic and flexible ap- 
proach” to domestic and in- 
ternational issues.

Much of Londons crime gives every appearance of having 
been committed by mindless morons. 

By contrast, some financial frauds are so complex, it takes 
some of our top brains months to unravel them. 

Whichever end of the scale we’re dealing with, a quick 
chase and an armlock isn’t always the solution. 

In our opinion, it’s infinitely better to be one step ahead 
of the criminal rather than a couple of paces behind.

The reverse is nearer the truth. - 

A police officer’s job calls for someone with a lot of

As well as plenty of common sense, you’ll need a strong

specifically formed for the task. 

Like the criminal fraternity, we’re always on the lookout 
for new ideas we can turn to our advantage. 

The Neighbourhood Watch Schemes that, are proving to 
be so successful are just one example. 

Micro-chip technology is another. 

A lot of routine investigation is now done by computer; 
tracing fingerprints, checking on stolen cars, cross-referencing 
information to find a common link — that sort of thing. 

The traffic in central London would be even more of a 
nightmare if it weren’t largely computer controlled. 

Our central Command and Control complex and the 
communication links with local police stations have all been 
computerised, too. 

In short, the Met is a very sophisticated machine. And it 
runs on brain power as much as manpower. 

Who needs brains on the beat?

With a population of 2j6 
millioii, Shenyang ranks as 
the second largest city fa 
China's north-east, an area of 
three provinces — Liaoning, 

Jilin and He Uo Pg ji aBg — 
which were once better known 
as Manchuria. Today, the 
region is China's Rohr valley. . 

Although its history stret- 
ches back 2,006 years, Shen- 
yang first became industrial- 
ized after the Japanese 
occupied it in 1931. Alter the 
Soviet liberation at the end of 
the Second World War, foe 
locals began expanding exist- 
ing Japanese factories. 

Despite its industrial her- 
itage, practically nothing fa 
Shenyang’s narrow, dirty st- 
reets, Banked by dilapidated 
bride houses and rundown 
factories, hints at its tide as 
Chian's laboratory of eco- .

about 130 nranSdpal factories

Twenty of its 71 employees 
wore allowed to retire on

dearly a filmed record of the 
occasion, was the same true of 
Lnpino Lane doing his Lam- 
beth Walk on the stage of a 
theatre? In which case, why 
select it, or the ten-second 
fragment of an unfunny 
George Robey? Grade, Tessie, 
I don't know who they all were. 
One gabbling couple was 
identified only as “Freddie 
Schweitzer and stooge". 

The programme needed a 
nimble- witted septuagenarian 
technician to recall for ns what 
was done when the pre-war 
live audience declined to 
laugh. 

The Sunday PremOre was 
cast largely from septuagenar- 
ians. Past Caring (BBCI), 
written by Tom Clarke, was 
carefully directed by Richard 
Eyre with shots where pos- 
sible through reinforced glass 
and net curtains, evidently to 
emphasize barriers. Denholm 
Elliott played a youngish old 
man sexually admired by sev- 
eral Inmates of an old people's 
home as well as by the irritable 
warden (Connie Booth). The 
camera attended closely to 
several mating displays. 

Some shots were Rem- 
brandtesqne in the treatment 
of light falling upon white legs 
or a discarded dress, and the 
possibility of more of this 
coming into view held the 
attention even as the slender 
story petered out There was a 
sumptuous performance, how- 
ever, from the octogenarian 
Emlyn Williams as a crum- 
bling former valet, fearful of 
solitude but still trembling 
with merriment at die memory 
of boys he tumbled half a 
century before. 


only aroused by 
one’s own antecedents.” 

hat the eminent Ger- 
man musicologist 
Carl Dahlhaus said 
in 1961 on the occa- 
sion of the 150th 
anniversary of Liszt's birth hardly 
seems to be the case any longer 25 
years on. The central figure of 
Romantic music — which is what 
Liszt is increasingly being rec- 
ognized to be — has come a lot 
doser to many people today. Music 
is once again allowed to speak and 
to punt, to express and represent 
something, and no longer has to 
“be sufficient unto itself” (which it 
hardly ever has been, anyway). 
There had been, as a first stag: of a 
new approach to Liszt, the discov- 
ery of his late pieces which point 
forward into the modern age and 
liberate themselves radically from 
tonality and any familiar formal- 
expectations. Then followed the 
rehabilitation of the turn of the 
century (which had owed so much 
to Liszt). Finally, appreciation is 
reaching back to tbe time when 
virtuosity bordered on the bizarre, 
when Liszt was the most famous 
man in Europe and music at once 
more “absolute" and more literary 
than ever before. 

But Liszt’s own rehabilitation is 
by no means yet complete. There is 
still discussion as to whether he 
belong in the pantheon or in a 
collection of curiosities. “Thai berg 
has three quarters feeling and one 
quarter skill, Liszt, on the other 
hand, has three quarters skill and 
one quarter feeling”: this bon mot 
of Rossini was recently printed as 
the epigraph in a successful book 
on the pianoforte with the purpose 
of setting the reader against U-svt 
from the outset (Chopin and 
Schumann, however, thought very 
differently.) In the same book one 
stumbles across the opinion that 
“the passion in his playing (which 
is of a very cold kind) afreets his 
hearers”. The insinuation that 
Liszt's passion was of a very cold 
kind would certainly have dis- 
pleased his contemporaries. 

What stood, or stands, in the way 
of a better understanding of Liszt? 

First, there is the connection 
between envy and posthumous 
feme. Liszt aroused more envy, 
perhaps, than anybody else in 
musical history. His eariy Euro- 
pean success as a virtuoso and 
improviser reminds one of Mozart. 
His abilities as a pianist and as an 
“expressive genius" (Sch umann ) 
put even Chopin, Mendelssohn 
and Clara Schumann in their 
places. Wit and versatility, mas- 
culine beauty, the social eclat of the 
parvenu and a love-life hovering 
on the brink of scandal, taken in 
combination, proved to be very 
hard to forgive, particularly as 
there were none of tbe extenuating 
circumstances which tend to guar- 
antee geniuses a good name with 
posterity: Mozart's and Schubert’s 
early deaths, say, the legend of 
Mozart’s impoverishment, Schu-

The reputation of Franz Liszt, who 
died one hundred years ago this ****** 

autumn, is still far from secure; here 
the eminent pianist Alfred Brendel 
seeks to break down some of the 
barriers to a greater understanding 
of the composer’s real stature 


The penalties

ben’s syphilis, Beethoven’s deaf- 
ness, Chopin's consumption or 
Schumann’s madness. (In Wag- 
ner's case, his monstrous egotism 
and merciless promotion of his 
own ends, while not arousing 
sympathy, present a frame of mind 
people enjoy sharing.) 

Liszt and Haydn, the most often 
misunderstood of all the important 
musicians, for all their differences 
resemble one another is this, that 
their biographies offer too little 


sustenance to pity. (Haydn's in- 
sufferably bigoted wile and the 
senility of his last years are 
evidently too everyday to be an 
adequate penance.) In later life 
Haydn was tbe undisputed grand 
master of the musical world. The 
19th century punished him for that 
- just as it punished Liszt for his 
pre-eminence as a performer by 
disregarding his cninpn$itinn<C- 
Haydn was marked down as the 
good old classicist (which he was 
not), as the “friend of the family 
who is always welcome but has 
nothing new to say” (Schumann). 
Liszt was seen as a poseur and a 
charlatan and as the representative 
of an external, bombastic Roman- 
ticism (which he was only occa- 
sionally). Only in our.own century 
have a significant number of 
composers — from Richard Strauss 
and Ravel, through Busoni to 
Schoenberg, Bartok and Boulez — 
been willing to take Liszt seriously. 

With Liszt, listeners and per- 
formers have to be selective in 
areas where other great composers 
usually did the work themselves: 
the wheat has to be separated from 
the chaff! When much has been 
cast aside, there remains, at least in 
the piano music, a rich harvest of 
pieces whose scope, boldness and 
colour are unmatched. Creations 
such as the B minor Sonata, the 
Annies de P&erinage , the Vari- 
ations on Weinen. Klagen, Sorgen, 
Zagat, Mosonyi’s Grabgekit or 
part of the Etudes— to mention but 


a few— can stand betide the best of 

Chopin and fehnmann ■ 

Liszt’s music is very difficult to 
classify. Consequently in the end 
no nation claimed it for hs own — 
not even Hnngaiy, since he made 
tbe mkt akft of equating that 
country's folk-music with that of 
tbe gypsies. What Liszt offers is a 
panorama of styles rather than a 
“specialization in himself”. His 
powers of assimilation resembled 
those oftais beloved gypsies. To the 
serious-minded 19th century, this 
was something alien to its nature: 
only Stravinsky and Picasso were 
later “allowed" to carry on in a 
comparable way. 

iszl’s range extends from 
the most sumptuous to 
the ascetic, from the holy 
rto the ex ceedin gly pro- 
fane — and from careless- 
ness to mastery. For all those who 
regarded instrumental music as a 
Goman monopoly, his com- 
positions were shon on “ger- 
m an ness." Finally, 20th-century 
purism until recently only let 
original works pass and preferably 
those which contained no rhetoric, 
no apotheoses and no arpeggios. 
Arrangements are no longer 
unrespectable. But, had Liszt left 
nothing more than operatic para- 
phrases and Lied transcriptions 
behind him, he would by now be 
almost as forgotten as ThaJberg. 

“Unfortunately, with no other of 
our great composers is the effect so 
greatly dependent on foe render- 


L 


iug... and so few players are 
realty-able to find their way into 
Liszt’s most personal and char- 
acteristic mode. Sometimes it is 
poetry that is lacking, sometimes 
intelligence, sometimes the wealth 
of feeling" (Lina Ramarm, Liszt- 
iana). List has to be protected' 
against those interpreters who 
would trivialize him *nrt those 
admirezs who would admire the 
trivialized result Though most of 
the important pianwiR of the 
second half of foe last century 
belonged to Liszt's circle of stu- 
dents at least for a time, there was 
never a convincing tradition of 
Liszt playing. This may have to do 
with the feet that after his virtuoso 
period Liszt scarcely ever appeared 
as the interpreter of his own work 
and never, came . forward as- 
propagandist for himself (He pre- 
ferred to help others, such- as 
Wagner.) His ^reat pianistic de-. 
mauds were frequently mistaken 
by othera for an end in themselves. 
But for Liszt, die much-maligned 
programme-musician, muse was 
essentially a poetic means of 
expression and the piano the object 
of transformation, whether into an 
orchestra or into the dements or 
spheres . . . 

Unlike Mozart's, for example,. 
Liszt’s music reflects the man with 
unusual directness — and not 
merely the composer himselfi for it 
also holds the minor up to the 
moral nature of its executant. 
Anyone who cannot tell sentimen- 


tality from true feeling, or false 
- pathos from the jgenuihe kind, wST 
nrin Liszt’s miitic, even , if be does 
not juin his own reputation. Any- 
one who does not play -Liszt with 
nobility passes sentence on tom- 
seff! An overwhelming mqjarityof 
observers bear , witness to the feet - 
that as both _man . and artist- Liszt 
had nobifity. ... 

There are modem efaroniden of 
piano-playing who describe Liszt’s 
virtuosity as '’show”. This is a 
hiimind^ 'X tanriTng T.tctt was the. 
first to leave the. sakm behind. To 
.the displeasure of many of Iris 
contemporaries, be democratized 
the concert, occasionally appearing 
in large halls before thousands. 
That demanded a different kind of 
projection m piano-playing, a sort 
of mass-suggestion which involved 
a physically freer .and more *4e?V'- 
monstratrve treatment of thelib-^ 
strument — and. In those days, 
sometimes -used up several grands 
in an evening. It was Liszt who 
created the “redtaT, a solo concert 
given by a single p er fo rm e r . This 
too has been held against , him as 
sdfgtorificatioiL 

Legends and calumnies wound 
themselves around Liszt’s person- 
ality, as they did around Paga- 
nini’s. The feiryHStory of. his ■ 
aristocratic descent dissolves into 
smoke on doser inspection, as does 
the “authenticity” of his illegiri- - 
mate offspring. Liszt lived in. a - - 
social and literary environment 
peppered with romans-hiltf, in 


which lady writers played a major 
nrie. George Sand and the Count- 
ess of Agoeit squabbled over 
Balzac’s Beatrix, the countess sub- 
sequent]? gave free rein to her 
resentment in a novel called 
NeUda, published under tite name 
of Damd Stem, m which Liszt, in 
the guise of a painter, is a ccused of 
lying unable to produce works in a 
major format. A few years later 
Liszt once and for all refuted her 
with tiie writing of tbe B minor 
Sonata.

that pathological con- ■ < 
fidence-trickster Olga 
Janina. It is typical tbar a writer * 
nice Ernest Newman should have 
taken her assertions seriously, be- 
cause they corresponded to his ■ 
conception of Liszt as a weakling. 
His book on Liszt did that mudi 
more damage in the Anglo-Saxon 
' worid .by coming from the pen of a 
Wagner expert who made constant .. 
refere n ce s to 'his ’own assumed - , 
objectivity. Newman’scaricature is 
founded in musical scepticism; .

positions basically mean very little, -. 
who cannot see the music for all tte 
“virtuoso pieces Vis only too , 
willing to view List's personality 
from the point of view of musical .. 
mistrust. Hanslick was an excep- 
tion in so far as he never ceased to 
value Liszt as a person and 
' performer although he abominated .• 
his compositi ons. 

- .Of course, Liszt was not a sainL 
Still,' there isno composer I would .'

admired, his brilliance, his mag- . 
netism were bebd in check by a . 
streak of sdflessneto and humifity. 
What other musician helped out so 
often and so generousfy, was so ; 
magnanimous _m granting recog- ’ 
ration, so willingly shared his gifts ‘ 
with others? Who else would have 
bomethe “bitterness of heart", the . 
disappointments, both personal - 
and artistic; of his later ydars with 
such impressive composure? Who

concert platform and, in nis late 
works, to make amends for all the 
superfluous notes in - Ins past 
compositions by a spareness which . 
brings music to the very, edge of - 
silence? 

The feet that even his renunci- 
ation of public concerts (except for 
charity) and his taking minor 
orders have been seen as sets of 
Lisztian self-dramatization in- 
dicates bowmuch — even today — 

we have to ask hu pardon for. After 
the rhapsodic exaggerations of his 
disciples and the biographical 
Thorwaldsen figure brought into

Caroline von Sayn-Wittgenstein, a 
critical backlash was inevitable. To

Gak concerts have more of a 
reputation tor eternity than 
for entcmmment, but this 
Royal Philharmonic Society 
event, celebrating the “United

Sons- One conW speculate, tor

ing toe music. 

There was Britten's fas 
Ilhirmriaiiom, catering neatly 
tor Preach and British in- 
terests, and Heather Harper to 
sing it - so the frisk vote was 
safe. The Italians would have 
been pleased fay hearing 
Berio's tongue-in-cheek (I 
think) orchestral variations on 
Boccherini's “Ritirata nofr 
tuma di Madrid”, and the feet 
that the original Boccherini 
celebrates Spanish military 
efficiency would study have 
gone down well m Iberian 
diplomatic rirdea. 

The Germans, of course, 
had the lion’s share; Beet 
boven’s Fourth Symphony, 
and Karagan's arrangement of 
the “Ode to Joy", which is 
mow. apparently the official 
“EEC Anthem”. This toe BBC 
Symphony, Orchestra deliv- 
ered with an. understandable 
lack' of conviction. One’s only 
regret was that the Life Guards

By the end of the year

THE TIMES MONDAY NOVEMBER 3 1986 


SPECTRUM 


An eagle in his element 




or 



High on a cloud of 


political fervour, 


the Reagan air show 
is catching votes 


with the old message 


of raw patriotism. 


Christopher Thomas 


follows his forays 


among the faithful 


T here is an hour to go and 
thousands are war ming up 
for the Gipper, as they call 
the President here. A coun- 
try band plays a deafening 
- racket of patriotic songs, giant 
American flags sway from the sta- 
dium ceiling, 200 journalists fiddle 
with tape recorders, dozens of TV 
* crews clamber atop their scaffolding. 
Security men. White House staff. 
Secret Service agents, policemen and 
an army of party bureaucrats scurry 
about, chattering into two-way ra- 
dios above the dun of chanting and 
cheering. There is tension and 
excitement A fierce nationalism 
hangs heavy in the air. 

This feverish melee, later to he 
deluged under a 30-second blizzard 
of balloons and confetti for TV, is 
the stuff of Ronald Reagan on the 
stump. It is an identical performance 
twice a day, given in cities hundreds 
of miles apart - the same speech, the 
same ridiculous jokes and anecdotes, 
the same upbeat Reagan telling 
people that nobody locks America 
any more without paying a price. 

This immensely simple man con- 
nects so easily, so completely, with 
America’s complex character and its 
■ deepest needs. Those who mock and 
deride him have to admit that he is a 



"protest; followed by a noisy scuffle: 
A banner opposing Star Wars is tom > 
down and thousands roar then: 
approval. These are essentially, ral- 
lies of the Reagan. feithfiih ^Tbe 
absence of heckless is amzzmg. 
People come to watch their Presi- 
dent, and while his policies may hot 
necessarily be liked, he always is. 

The number of young people m 
every audience is" striking, jfytr 
Reagan never fells to addirss thezn

. kids in the world, teffingthem fhatit 
. is the duty ofpeopfehls age to-hazad 
over “the . ' same- freedom ' and 
- opportunity ; that our parents - and 
grandparents banded over to us” 

' This optimisth, this hope a 
security in tomorrow,- flows from 
him. This is the spefl. He 
redefined the Presidettcy. He does 
’hot khow as much -as other presi- 
dents, be does hot work k>i 
he does net study details, he sepa- 
rates himself from any unpopular j

Back on the press plane, Larry 
Speakes has been speaking. It seems 
that Mr Reagan has been oven* 
whelmed by “the sheer beauty of: 
America’s heartland” that he has 
been observing from his eyrie. And

Antoine Datad mid that still 


phenomenon, a man with a genius 


foe American occasion, plaj 
heavily on sentimentality 
American power. Without TV, none 
of it would work. It is packaged good 
news, pure political theatre, and foe 
old actor is the consummate 
performer. 

He has toured 13 states in recent 
weeks to beef up support for foe mid- 
term elections tomorrow. It is his 
final fully-fledged election swing, his 
last hurrah. Everywhere he goes he 
appeals for a last vote for the Gipper 
(the name comes from his 1940 
portrayal of George Gipp, a talented 
Notre Dame football player, in the 
film Krone Rockne. All American). 
And always, thousands cheer. 

The Reagan roadshow moves 
about in Air Force One, accompa- 
nied by fighter planes, travelling 
through cleared air lanes. The char- 
tered press plane travels several 
minutes either ahead or behind, its 
occupants spoon-fed with handouts, 
speaking schedules, hotel reserva- 
tions and free-flowing booze. 


A Cl 30 transport plane carries Mr 
Reagan’s black bullet-proof limou- 
sine to foe airport ahead 'of time. 
Roads from foe airport are cleared as 
the presidential convoy thunders 
down the runway to foe rally venue, 
bailed closely by three chartered 
Greyhound buses full of the press 
and TV — foe vital umbilical coni 
that makes it all work. 

Nobody gets to ask foe President 
any questions. The issues are diffi- 
cult to discuss in detail because 
issues are less important than Mr 
Reagan’s photo opportunities. The 
best you get is Larry Speakes, the 
White House spokesman, who tells 
journalists utterly inane things like: 
“The president really feels he’s 
getting his message across.” 

nd Mr Reagan is right 
The answer to foe puzzle 
of his immense popularity 
lies in his dignity, his 
being comfortable with 
himself and his Presidency. People 
remember how he handled being 
shot and getting cancer. On the 
campaign trail you fed this mysteri- 
ous communion with foe American 
people, manufactured as much of it 
assuredly is. 

He comes to the platform to foe 
accompaniment of stomping and 
cheering, music blaring from high 
school bands, the audience roused by

occasion 9 


A 


gushing introductory speeches. 
Everything has been organized to the 
last detail and the precise minute by 
foe White House advance team. 
Television people can set their 
commercial breaks by him. 

The delivery is flawless, every 
word of it read. The press groans as 
“foe puppy joke” runs again. It goes 
thus: A boy is selling Democratic 
puppies. A few weeks later he is 
selling Republican puppies. How 
come the puppies changed? 
“Because,” says the boy “now their 
eyes are open.” 

The thousands roar in delight. 

Light on issues, the speech is 
heavy on imagery, sentiment and a 
heady nationalism. It is this intense 


. “If we must ask them to put their 
lives on foe line, then they deserve; 
the finest weapons and equipment 
money can buy. Because of our 
young men and women in uznfonn^ 
things really have changed around 
the world.” 

That’s the message they come to • 
hear. America foe Mighty to the 
rescue. Reagan is saying, in essence, 
that they can have back that im- 
mense influence and respect they 
had after the Second World War. No . 
nickle-and -dime dictator, he says, 
had better tangle with the United 
States of America. He points out that 
not one square indi of territory has 
been lost to communism in his six 
years at the White House. Grenada, 
he adds, to tumultuous cheers, has 
been set free: “Rea-gun, Rea-gun,” 
they chant 

In foe back of the vast stadium 
there is a plaintive little voice of 


Observed Mr Speakes: “That’s 
what the President thought looking 
at the country.” Question: ‘Will Mr 
Reagan change his speech later in the 
campaign?”- Answer; “That speech 
' has a lot of good lines in ft. It’s got to 
last until Saturday at least” Ques- 
tion: “Wbat - is -Reagan doing 
tonight?” Answer: “He plans to have 
dinner at his hotel suite and call h® 
room mate (Nanqr Reagan) who 
happens to be- in San. Fnmcfaco 
-tonqfot" 

That is foe sort of drivel foe 
journalists must deal with. The 
Reagan imageconstanfry ovewhelms 
and conceals foe issues. The Demo- 
crats have faiW pathetically to hai« 
the farm crisis on . him or mobilize 
foe growing poor population against 
him. Opposition to Star Wars is soft 
and the Democrats could not stop 
him turning the failure in 
into a triumph. - 

The mood of Mr Reagan’s Presi- 
dency may -be. a phase, a passing 
phenomenon. Somebody said Amer- 
ica is having too good a time: 
Somebody else said foe cake is too 
rich. Mr Reagan, , by implication, 
gives foe. classic American response: 
“Nuts”.

Beware the suitable case 


An anaesthetist’s mistake dur- 
ing a tonsil operation left 
teenage bride Linda Thomas 
brain-damaged, wfaeelcbafr- 
boand and with a mental age of 
six: the anaesthetist and South 
Glamorgan Health Authority 
found themselves liable last 
year for a £679,000 damages 
award. 

In February, architects Nor- 
ma □ and Dawbarn of 
Gnfldford, Surrey, were held 
responsible far damages and 
interest tntalliiig more than £1 
milti ng over repairs to a 12- 
storey Mock which is part of 
Imperial College, Loudon. 
The claim was brought after a 
fall of tiles from outside the 
building. 

Examples Eke these have 
prompted a growing fear 
within the p®fess5i®@3 about' 
foe rise in damages awarded 
by the corals m cases of 
negligence. 

Many big firms of chartered 
accountants now face muhS- 
rotoinn pound or dollar neg- 
ligence suits. Sotiritors, ton, 
are starting to face big cfairas. 
One city form is said to have 
been involved recently is an 
out-of-court settlement 
amounting to £30 minion. 

And in the last decade there 
has been a rapid rise in 
medical negligence awards. Ia 
1970 a h r° child 

might have been awarded 
£20,000 to £40,000 in 
compensation. Today awards 
of £300.0000 to £650,000 are 
common. It is only a matter of 
time, doctors believe, before 
the first award of £1 nriUioa is 
made by an English court. 

As a result, the professions 
are meeting today to look at 
ways to limit their liability. 
Doctors have called far a oa- 
fs irit compensation scheme, 
where foe taxpayer effectively 
foots the damages bill, and 
lawyers and accountants are 
jng the Government to limit 
bylaw the damages courts can 
award. 

At the heart of tbefr concern 


Representatives of . jggggfr 


the professions meet 


today in an effort to 


limit negligence 


awards that conld 


lead to bankruptcy 



is tim rising cost of insurance 
cover. The profession? are now 
paying huge premiums far 
whatever indemnity insurance 
they can get. Large City firms 
of solicitors have found that 
this year they cannot obtain 
more than £40 milljon cover — 
at premiums of up to £JL4. 
mflfion — eves though they 
would like up to £75 minion. 

They are not alone. Bar- 
risters are faring demands far 
rises in insurance premiums of 
between' 50 and 500 per cent. 
'Surveyors, dril engineers and 
architects are in the same 
boat. Architects and City 
solicitors have set their own 
insurance schemes and from . 
next year the Law Society will 
run its own scheme far 
soficftars. 


The American notion of 
automatically suing when 
wrong Is 


Neatly half the 
professional negligence cases 
to crane before foe courts since 
1950 have talma place ia the 
past five years: Doctors are 
starting to be more wary about 
non-essential and largely cos- 
metic operations because of 
the risk. 

Bernard Hargrove. QC 
in a recent notice to 
doctors from foe Medical De- 
fence Union: “Are foe corals 
and the lawyers being too 
dever by half to extending and 
increasing damag e s , safe in 
die (false) assumption that 
there is a bottomless bucket of 
insurance money available?” 

Hargrove also pointed out 
thatthree out of four dahaauts 
have legal eld, which enables 
them to think they have 
“nothing to lose”. Another 
factor is foe new rale whereby, 
instead of damages being paM 
as a lamp sura, foe plaintiff in 
some cases is allowed back far 
a “second bite”. 

The Government may have 
refused to estuarine limiting 
liability, but the issue will not 
go away. A 1980 committee of 
the professions under David 
Hint QC (now Mr Justice 
Hirst) raged unanimously that 
professions be allowed to limit 
theft liability except fa the 
case of death or personal 
injury, or foreondoct involving 
fraud or dishonesty. At the 
same time, it said, there 
should be fasraance up to a 

mavi mBni Knrifr «f IjaHTItt y . 

It Is time, fan Hunter QC 

says, that foe proposals are re*. 

aired. If not, there is a real risk 
that 1 rising damages will 
threaten foe atmafabaHy '-of 
Independent professional ad- 
vice. And there is a.'dariger.'he 
warns,. that the “brightest 
young men and women” wflT 
not enter professional practice, 
if the bankruptcy risk .as a 
result of a mafavactke'hwmdt

financial rewards available”:.

Jean-Qaude Bristly, foe ao-

tional open letter to Iiaud in 
Paris Match, pleading with 
him to come hack quickly to 
those who loved ; him. 
“Change flats,” he nrgedi “set

Brialy made ft sound simple. 

It has been suggested that ft 
was the death two years ago 
of Truffaut, Lcaud’s spiritual 
father and virtnal alter ego , 
which tipped him over the 
edge of reality and turned 
him into a depressive, aggres- - 
sive recluse. But Lfiaud’s " 
difficulties begm long before 
that In 1974, when he had 
just turned 30 and was still at 
the height of his acting career, 
there were reports of an 
atte m pted suicide. 

Like Truffaut he had a 
troubled childhood, being ex- 
pelled from no fewer than 12 
boarding schools and having 
terrible rows with his 
' dominating mother, a failed - 
actress. When, at the age of 14 
and with no previous acting 
experience, he "answered 
Truffaut’s advertisement for 
an adolescent to play the 
leading role in Les 400 Coups, 
he not only got the part but 
also moved info Truffaut’s 
home. He continued to live ; 
with the film director for ' 
several years, consciously 
meddling himself on his 
benefactor and mentor, even 
to the extent of adopting 


. is, or appears to be, Jean- 
Pierre Ltand. 

Is he mad? The writers at 
La Caupokv (foe. of- his 
favourite restaurants, do" not 
think, so. “We haven’t- seen 
him. since foe incident with 
. ;his neighbour,” - ope said. 
“But before that, be used to 
come in almost every day, 
sometimes with a girl, , but 
mostly alone. He would often 
sit fm half an hour or more, 
not saying anything, before 
suddenly breaking into- wild 
laughter... 

“One day he might ordei/ 
just a glass of wine, an<T‘ 
another day a lobster. He 
hardly ever had any money 
on him, so he relied on 
passing friends to pay. People 
say he’s violent, but I’ve 
never seen him aggressive. 

“He’s just got his head in 
the clouds. He’s like he is in 
his films, but. that's not 
madness for me. He's always 
been foe stune fira as long as I 
can remember, and-Fvebeen 
serving here for 20 years:” 
Some of Leaud’s. neigh- 
bours, however, do not show 
foe same indulgence, toward 
his foibles and excesses. “It 
was not the fust time he has 
attacked someone, or that the 
police have had to be called,” 1 
said one woman. “He regu- ' 
larly has violent outbursts of 
temper. He’s even attacked 
his own mother. • 

“Everyone in the courtyard 
is a bit frightened. He's not a 
particularly likeable charac- 
ter be never smiles or says 
’Bonjour’ to any of us, ami 
often he uses filthy lan g ua g e 
to certain people he feels 
particularly paranoid about” 
But another, younger 
neighbour professed to have a 
soft spot for him, despite the 
fact that she, tod, , has on 
occasion been foe object of 
his tantrums. “Most of the 
stories iold about him are 
true — haunting cemeteries, 
beating up bis girlfriend with 
a crucifix, breaking .windows, 
shouting and all that It's j 
nothing to do with Truffaut \ 
It started long before thaL 
“I don’t think he's crazy. 
He’s just totally emotionally 
u n b alan ced.- Bur- somewhere 
along foe line there's some- 
one bright,. lucid and pretty 
respecrable. Irt just that he’s 
got a problem wjfo. reality.”

ff ^man embryo research: 

a testing time ahead 

Medical Research Co

S hould scientists be al- 
lowed to experiment on 

human embryos or ^ 

should such research be 
KantiM as unethical? The _ 
controversy fanned fast 
by Enoch Powell's Unborn . 

Children (Protection) Bill 
looks set to flare op agam ■ 

laier this month, whcn MPs 

leam their places in ihetaBoi . 

for private members Bins. 

i Only ftc first six in the 

Hot wiD tew any 
lance of getting a Bill on the 

anitt book. But tteSocmty 

i- the Protection ofUnboro 
hildren (SPUQ, which, is 
xarheading the campaign 

ir a ban, dawns to have hnw 

p bet w een 60 and 80 MPs 
een to have a go a* 
sintrodneing Powell s Bill, 
/hich gained a majority ot 
57 to 82 at report stage 
cfore fatting victim to its 
opponents’ filibustering 
actics. . 

The feeling among BO’S is 
hat the Government will not 
introduce legislation on the 
sententious subject of em- 

tayo research before the gen- 
eral election. On a fiee vote, 
which the Govemmenttes 
promised to allow, the Powell 
action could prove large 
enough to block any attempt 
to legislate along the fanes tf 
the Wamock Report, which 
in 1984 recommended 
permitting research on em- 
bryos up to 14 days after 
fertilization. 


As yet another row 
looms over these 
c ontroversial 
experiments, a new 
book looks at the 
medical, moral and 
religious issues 

equally polarized. The Ro- 
man Catholic Church op- 
poses any experimentauon 

on what ft regards as already a 

human being. But the Synod 
of the Church of England, by 
the narrowest of majorities, 
dffrntwri a motion calling for 
a ban. 


Public opinion, too, is di- 
vided. A National Opinion 
PoD survey Iasi year showed 
52 per cent approving oi 
research, 26 per cent against, 
and 22 per cent don’t knows. 
Even doctors and .soennstt 
do not present a united front. 
A group of anti-Warnock 
doctors, mainly clinicians 
rather than researchers, have 
set up a medical and saentnic 
advisory committee to advise 
pro-life MPs. 

While the Government 
dithers, embryo research, 
which is subject to no legal 
controls at the moment, us 
going on at 10 centres around 


Medical Research Council 
and the Royal College of 
Obstetricians a™ 

Gynaecologists. jo* 

authority lays down sinct 
guidelines m Une wih the 

Wamock recommendations, 
and will not approve research 
which involves c *° ni °% 
growing an embiyo bey<wm 
14 days, genetic modificanon 
of an embryo, or planting it in 
the uterus of an ammaL 

Some scientists believe 
that the issues have been 
clouded by the use of the 
word “embryo”,, with its 

suggestion of a tiny human 
being, to describe the earliest 
after fertilization of the 
egg by the sperm. Dr Anne 
McLaren, Director of the 
Medical Research Connors 
Mammalian Development 
Unit and a member of bom 
the VLA and the Wamock 
Committee, prefers the terra 
“pre-embryo". 

Dr McLaren is one of a 
group of scientists, doctors, 
lawyers, moral philosophers 
and theologians whose : debate 
on the issues were published 
last week under the uue 
Human Embryo Research: 
Yes or No?*.

THE TIMES MONDAY NOVEMBER 3 1986 



THE TIMES 
DIARY 

Warring 

Want 

A new row is coming along nicely 
at War on Want, where an internal 
audit is under way amid allega- 
tions that the director, George 
Galloway, has used charity funds 
to pursue an expensive lifestyle 
and his political career. Galloway, 
a prospective Labour candidate, 
claims he has transformed the 
charity's financial situation, 
comparing the £3 million now 
sitting in its bank with a £60,000 
overdraft he inherited on jou ' 
in November 1983. W o W 
ficials insist, however, that the 
£60,000 overdraft existed in the 
year 1982-83 and that it was their 
cost-cutring that brought the char- 
ity into the black the year Gallo- 
way arrived. As for today's 
£3 million reserve, only £950,000 
is its own cash; the rest comprises 
funds from the Overseas Develop- 
ment Agency, the EEC and other 
agencies passsing through W o W 
coffers but destined for specified 
projects. Galloway is mystified by 
his officers’ figures. “I'd better go 
up upstairs and have a word with 
them,” he tells me. 

• Meanwhile, the SDP secretary 
in Glasgow Hfllhead, where Gallo- 
way is standing against Roy 
Jenkins, lefts me that in the last 
three months he has received three 
War on Want leaflets, all featuring 
photographs of GaDoway. 

Ecumenical 

As Glasgow recovers from its 
Orange weekend, Celtic football- 
ers have been banned from mak- 
ing foe sign of the cross or kneeling 
after they have scored a goal. Such 
behaviour might be acceptable for 
Maradona and fellow Latins but 
Celtic manager David Hay feels 
that with his club's strong sectar- 
ian history — it was founded 100 
years ago by monks - it could 
whip up unnecessary passions. 

Man on the spot 

Imagine the scene: a top-selling 
writer with a bent for Tory politics 
and intrigue is harmlessly picnick- 
ing on a secluded island in foe 
Bahamas. From nowhere a light 
aircraft crashes before his eyes and 
out clamber two men who rudi off 
leaving behind $1 million in 
drugs- Our hero runs in pursuit. A 
James Bond-like chase ensues on a 
feny and the traffickers are 
caught, earning foe writer a pat on 
foe bade from foe local police. The 
latest Jeffrey Archer fentasy? Not 
quite: these are the just disclosed 
real-life adventures of trip spook- 
watcher Nigel West who, under 
his real name, Rupert Allason, is 
Conservative prospective par- 
liamentary candidate for Torbay. 


Accolade 


The new Egon Ronay guide, out 
today, nominates a Reader of the 
Year. He is American Maurice 
Taylor, who followed last year’s 
edition on a gastronomic tour of 
England as far as Thombury 
Castle hotel and restaurant, near 
Bristol To echo Victor Kiam, the 
razor man, he enjoyed his stay 
there so much that he bought the 
place for £1 million. 

0 A police pi 
learnt to his cost the meaning of a 
no-go area. Off to photgraph the 
scene of a crime in Brixtoo, he was 
set open by muggers and robbed of 
his cameras. 

Getting there 

After his frustrating rail trip - 
recounted here last week - Sir 
GeoTge Young, foe former envir- 
onment minister, will know what 
to do next time. I'm told that a 
conference organizer was kept 
waiting at Brighton station while 
his star speaker, housing minister 
John Patten, sat stranded in a 
train that had come to an 
inexplicable halt in the middle of 
nowhere. “You’d better do some- 
thing about that train," the or- 
ganizer told the stationm aster. 
“The transport minister’s on it.” 
Whether or not a result of foe ploy. 
R atten arrived almost on time.

Farewell to our sovereignty 


Anne Sofer 


For nearly 300 years our constitu- 
tional law has been based on the 
principle that Parliament was our 
supreme legislative authority. It 
alone could make, unmake or 
amend our laws. That sovereignty 
has now been ended. Its over- 
throw will be completed by Par- 
liament itself today when it passes 
the European Communities 
(Amendment) Bill 
On foe fees of it, the bill only 
adds (me more treaty to the Treaty 
of Rome. This new treaty is not 
appended to foe bilL You have to 
go to the Stationery Office to get it 
It will make you sit up. 

It is called the Single European 
Act. It has been signed by the 12 
member-states of foe EEC The 
opening words of the preamble say 
that its object is to “transform 
relations as a whole among their 
states into a European Union” 
and that they have “resolved to 
implement this European Union”. 

Every word was carefully cho- 
sen. “Transform'’ shows there is 
to be a fundamental change. 
“Single” shows that the states are 
to be no longer separate but one. 
“Act” shows that it is to be not a 
mere treaty but a legislative 
enactment. 

The preamble is followed by 23 
ages of dose print containing 
amendments to foe Treaty of 
Rome. They have been studied by 
a select committee of the House of 
Lords, which has reported: "The 
powers of the United Kingdom 
Parliament will be weakened by 
foe Single European Act The 
committee draw this important 
feet to foe special attention of the 
House.” 

That warning alerted some 
peers. They saw danger ahead! At 
the committee stage on October 8 
they put down 53 amendments 
seeking to amend the Single 
European Act so as to preserve foe 
sovereignty of foe Queen in 
Parliament. The controversy 
ranged between traditional 
constitutionalists on one side and 
political realists on the other. 

I ranged myself on the side of 
foe constitutionalists. I told of the 
legal doctrine about treaties: “This 
Single European Act is only a 
treaty. It is not binding on 
Parliament Our law says that a 
treaty is an act of foe executive 
government It has no force in 
England except in so fro- as 
Ftniament makes it so. It is 
therefore open to Parliament to 
consider each one of foe pro- 
visions of foe Single European 
Act: and to affirm, alter, amend or 
reject any one of them as Par- 
liament thinks fit So we have put 
down 53 amendments to ensure 
the supremacy of Parliament” 

The political realists put for- 
ward their views in these words of 
Lord Gladwyn, with his un- 
rivalled experience in inter- 
national. affairs: “The formal 
adoption of any single one of these 
amendments would mean that the . 
whole treaty had in effect been 
repudiated by foe British Par- 
liament — repudiated, that is, in 
spite of the feet that it was 



Lord Denning has 

fought hard to 
challenge the bill by 
which Parliament will 
today abandon some 
of its powers to the 
EEC. Here he sets out 
his case, but accepts 
the inevitable 


believed by foegwernxnent to be 
in the interests of this country and 
that ft has been accepted by all our 
Community partners . . . 

“Since in practice it would be 
impossible to renegotiate this 
treaty in order to incorporate any 
of foe committee's amendments, 
obviously a very dangerous situa- 
tion would arise which . . . could 
well mean that our partners in the 
Community would go ahead with- 
out us, thus I suppose eventually 
necessitating our withdrawal from 
the Community itself . . . I simply 
cannot imagine that a majority of 
this chamber would wish to be 
responsible for such a tragedy.” 

The House accepted the views 
of the political realists. They 
rejected foe very first amendment 
by 176 to 52. The Times came out 
with foe headline, “Denning 
crushed on sovereignty." 

To my min d this result requires 
foe lawyers of today to re-examine 
our law about treaties; at any rate 
multinational treaties of this lrind. 
Once signed they are binding at 
once — every word of them as a 
solemn compact between sov- 
ereign states — subject only to a 
formal ratification of the treaty by 
Parliament, without any amend- 
ment Once formally ratified, they 
are binding upon each and every 
one of the member-states. No one 
of foe stales can reject any part of 
foe law contained in foe treaty or 
amend it in any way. 

‘Obscene 9 — but now 
an open door to 
German rubber dolls 

This is indeed a transformation. 
It creates a new legal order in 
international law; and also in our 
constitutional law. Parliamentary 
sovereignty has gone. It has been 
replaced by Community sov- 
ereignty. Take two recent de- 
cisions of foe European Court of 
Justice. 

The first was about rubber 
inflatable dolls. They had been 
manufactured and sold freely in 
West Germany. When they were 
imported Into Heathrow, customs 
officers condemned them as “in- 
decent or obscene” .and seized 
them. The European Conn held 
that foe section of our act govern- 
ing indecency and obscenity was 


no longer valid because it of- 
fended against foe fundamental 
principle of the Common Market 
that goods lawfully marketed in 
one member-state, must be al- 
lowed free entry into otherstates. 

The other was about retirement 
ages. The health authorities at 
Southampton retired women ax 
60, when they could get a state 
pension. But they did not retire 
men until 65 because men could 
get a state pension only at 65. But 
foe European Court declared this 
unlawful discrimin ation because 
it was contrary to a directive 
issued by the Council of Ministers 
at Brussels even though it had 
never been implemented by our 
PariiamenL 

So ws have to reckon with a new 
constitutional principle. Commu- 
nity law, as declared' by foe 
European Court, is superior over 
any act of our Parliament that is 
inconsistent with it. Our courts 
must follow its rulings: and our 
Par liam ent must enact whatever 
legislation is necessary to make 
our law conform. 

The impact of this new principle 
wifi be found in an important case 
now pending in the European 
Court. For many years now in 
Britain, newly-constructed houses 
and other items have been zero- 
rated for VAT. This was expressly 
approved by Parliament But foe 
EEC Commission has brought an 
action claiming that this zero- 
rating contravenes a directive of 
foe Council of Ministers. If this 
contention is upheld, it will dem- 
onstrate vividly the supremacy of 
Community law. 

Even our influence oyer Com- 
munity legislation receives a se- 
vere setback. Previously most 
derisions had to be unanimous. 
But now, in the Single European 
Act, they can be made by a 
“qualified majority”. Each mem- 
bar-state is afiotzed a quota of 
votes. The total for all the states is 
76. A majority of 54 carries the 
day. The United Kingdom has 
, only 10 votes. 

The select committee of the 
Lords fold how this would affect 
,our sovereignty: “Since foe 
United Kingdom Parliament ex- 
ercises no control over Commu- 
nity legislation other tbanforough. 
foe voice and vote of United 
Kingdom ministers in foe Council 
of Ministers, anyweakening of the 


power of United Kingdom min- 
isters is feh equally by the United 
Kingdom Parliament.” 

Coupled with this, the Single 

- European Act en a ble s the leg- 
islative institutions of the Com- 
munity to expand their areas of 

.lawmaking greatly by “tor- 
monizing” foe laws of member- 
states so as to make them uniform. 
The select committee reported: “It 
is already apparent from the 
preamble that the act’s intention is 
.to make the Qnmnunifr£s 
islative procedures mare cnee 

- This streamlining, if successful, 
will increase ... foe areas subject 
to Community law rather than 
national law.” 

All this has given rise to a fear 
that we were' getting near, to a 
Federation of Europe. But Lord 
Gladwyn again gives the answer: 

' “It has never . . . been a ques- 
. turn of oar joining a federation in 
the accepted sense' of the tarn, 
namely, a number of states which 
join together with a common 
parliament or congress; a presi- 
dent or prime minister in total 
charge of foe government; a 
federal army; a federal, po 
force; a common language; great 
central ministries, including a 
ministry of foreign affair s with 
common diplomatic -and con- 
sulate services; and a common 
judiciary with very extended pow- 
ers . . . Under such a system it is. 
indeed true that our anrfmt 
institutions would be endange 
and even the position of the 
Queen would become im- 
possible." 

Accept defeat and 
give the Act 
our fullest support 

The Single European Act takes 
us, then, into a European union 
but not into a federation. It is a 
union which creates Community 
institutions and gives those in- 
stitutions considerable legislative, 
executive and judicial powers that 
take precedence over those of the 
member-states but otherwise 
leave their sovereignty intact 

So the debate is over. The 
political realists have won. The 
Single European Act ushers in a 
new constitution for Europe. It is 
to be launched at Strasbourg next 
month by Mrs Margaret Thatcher, 
accompanied by Sir Geoffrey 
Howe in his capacity as president 
of the Council of Ministers. 

Gone are tike battles that have 
divided us in the past as each 
strove for the mastery. Gone is foe 
concept of national sovereignty — 
to be replaced by European unity. 
The bells are sounding, “Ring out 
foe okL ring in the new.” . 

■It is the beginning of an epoch. 
■It is a vision come true. For 
Europe. 

- 1 would therefore now for 
myself sayrLet us forget the issues' 
that -divided us. Letusgive the 
Single European Act our whole- 
hearted support.' •

Bernard Levin: the way we live now 


There are four morals in the story 
I shall tell today, and there is 
much matter for wonder, hilarity 
and relish in all of them. 

A few days ago, Mr Rowan 
Atkinson, foe comedian, returned 
from foe United States with a flea 
in his ear, though the way be 
carried on you would have 
thought it was a Boring 747. He 
had gone to take Broadway by 
storm with his one-man show, but 
the only sound like founder was 
caused by the customers making 
for foe exits, and the last night 
followed bard upon foe first. 

The first moral is to be found in 
Mr Atkinson's response to his 
failure. The incisive satirist, 
scourge of folly, pompority and 
other safe targets, might have been 
expected to turn the occasion to 
advantage with a rueful quip, an 
epigram, a Wildean witticism. Far 
from it; he squealed like an entire 
murtnuration of stuck pigs, and 
his heart-rending cries of“We wuz 
robbed!” set ringing every welkin 
for miles around. His complaint 
was that Mr Frank Rich, cite 
theatre critic of the New York 
Times, had not — how shall I put it 
without giving fresh offence? — 
had not found Mr Atkinson as 
funny as Mr Atkinson thought he 
should. That would have been bad 
enough on its own, but. as those 
who know New York are aware, 
the NYT critic is in an extra- 
ordinary position; if he turns his 
thumb down on a play, it is virt- 
ually certain to fail , and manage- 
ments rarely bother to wait for it 
to do so, often posting the notice 
of closure within hours of the 
unfavourable review appearing. 
(This has nothing to do with foe 
identity of the critic; whoever is in 
foe chair at the NYT has the same 
effect. Mr dive Barnes, who sal in 
that chair for many years, once 
said that if a Barbary ape were 
appointed to the post its bad 
notices would be equally lethal) 
Anyway, Mr Rich turned his 
thumb down, Mr Atkinson's show 
closed, Mr Atkinson came home 
in a filthy temper, and the first 
moral can now be stated: those 
who direct laughter at others 
should learn also to laugh at 
themselves. 

The second moral concerns foe 
phenomenon just mentioned: the 
astonishing docility, which be- 
tokens an almost incredibly deep 
lack of se If-con fidence, of New 
York theatregoers. If foe NYTsays 
no, they flee; it never occurs to 
them to trust their own judgment. 
That, of course, explains why most 
of New York’s theatre is terrible, 
and why there is so little of it; foe 
last time I was there there was 
nothing on Broadway but musi- 
cals that tod been running for five 
years, British imports, and plays 
about Aids. 

The second moral then, is 
obvious. In the greatest dry of a 
land of individualists, foe play- 
fifvrx are a herd of conformists 


PsukYouaiw 



When a comic 
is flushed 
with failure... 


terrified to step a yard outside foe 
safe pentade of fashion. 

The third moral is to be found 
embedded, almost unnoticed, in 
Mr Rich's adverse review, foe 
burden ofhis complaint bring that 
Mr Atkinson was excessively reli- 
ant on lavatory jokes. The jokes in 
question figure in the fourth 
moral bat the point at issue in the 
third is the expression used by Mr 
Rich to explain what he was 
talking about it was that en- 
feebled, twee, babytalk, Noddy- 
word “toilet”, and it was a mercy 
that he didn't call it “The little 
boys’ room", “Where the guys 
go”, “Hombres”, "Bathroom” or 
“Comfort station”, every one of 
which I have seen in Coytown-on- 
tbc-Hudson. 

This third moral is a particu- 
larly interesting one; why are 
Americans, and particularly 
American newspapers, so minc- 
ingly given to euphemism, so 
terrified of saying what they mean 
in words most easily understood 
by those to whom they are 
directed? It is only very recently 
that American newspapers have 
begun to print the words “rape” 
and “cancer”; before that, even 
though the context made ab- 
solutely dear that that was what 
they were talking about, foe 
readers were not in any dneum- 
stances to have foe word set before 
them. (To this day, American 
reproductions of foe Zodiac 
invariably print “Crab” for 
“Cancer”, even when the other 
eleven signs are given in the 
Latin.) I am not advocating 
wholesale effing and blinding in 
mint at foe breakfast table; though 


I have never thought that such 

circumlocutions as “f ” or 

“f * * * "weremuchofan improve- 
ment on the original, but is it 
really true that three million New 
Yorkers would drop dead from 
shock if they saw foe word 
“lavatory” in the NYT? And if 
they would not, why does the 
newspaper continue to behave as 
though they would?- There’s a 
moral in it somewhere. 

But it is foe fourth quarter of 
.this story that has foe most 
substance, and provides foe most 
substantial moral Mr Rich’s re- 
view pointed out, forcibly and 
correctly, that British comedians 
are excessively given to the hu- 
mour of the lavatory; the topless 
Mr Atkinson is by no means 
exceptional in this regard. Nor Is 
Mr Rich; Johnny Carson was once 
asked why, although he tod many 
British visitors on bis progr am me, 
and many comedians, he never 
tod any British comedians. He 
replied, tersely, in words to the 
effect that foe only subject duty 
were willing to talk about was thetr 
natural functions. 

And the charge is true; foe 
“stand-up comic” in this country 
relies to an astounding extent on 
such th em es, to the well-justified 
of Amen* 


amazement and ■ 
cans, and indeed of foe rest of the 
world. (The French, much freer 
with Sudh language than most, USe 
“Merde” as an expletive in social 
circles and contexts where its 
translation would not be counte- 
nanced in Britain, Germany or 
Italy; but it is not foe foundation 
of their public humour.) 

Nor are these usages confined to 


foe more demotic part of foe 
spectrum, though I did once 
' switch on the television to find 
myself watching a comedian 
called Bernard Manning, an 
experience so memorably revolt- 
ing that I invested thousands of 
pounds in a computer system 
which now ensures that if he- is 
performing when I switch on, the 
set shows nothing but Ceefax until 
he has finished. But Mr Auberon 
Waugh, whose social gentility is 
beyond question, discovered lava- 
tories at the age of about 40 
(leading paediatricians whom I 
have consulted are unanimous in 
asserting that the discovery is 
normally made much earlier), and 
for several years thereafter could 
hardly write anything without 
alluding to the subject. (And Mr 
Atkinson, if it comes to that, went 
to a good university.) 

I think tins is an English disease 
rather more than a British one; the 
Scots and Welsh, and the Irish, 
mine different seams .for their 
humour. But the question that is ■ 
so difficult to answer is, of course, 
why? There are Freudian explana- 
tions, but they only shift the 
question back one space; if the 
English sense of humour is, lit- 
erally, infantile, why is it? And no 
one can deny that, such humour is 
widely popular, foe existence of so 
many comedians who rely on it 
demonstrates that supply and 
demand are at work. 

The fourth moral then, is the 
one which cannot be identified, at 
least by me. The effect of it, 
however, can be ganged, rather 
like foe effects of a new planet the 
existence of which can only be 
deduced from the irregularities it 
causes in the orbit of the known 
ones; English comedians will nev- 
er succeed in America, whether 
they faD foul of foe New Yak 
Times critic or. not. Mr Atkinson 
found that out the hard way, but 
will no doubt survive his dis- 
appointment; those who are. not 
invited to perform there will never 
know what they have missed; New 
York Times, please copy; spelling 
“lavatory” 1— — , of course. "

Who 




Some months ago I developed the 
theory that a campaign was afoot 
to isolate London. Everybody, 
everywhere, already knew that 
London was crazy. Its traffic jams 
and its .police force, its house 
prices and: its squalid underworid 
were already known to be biz- 
arrely different. But now all those 
in dbihgie — foe politicians and foe 
unions in particular — were pre- 
sented as Javing lost their senses 
completely. 

This message was coming not 
only from the Tory establishment 
which, after abolishing the GLC, 
had nothing: to lose front 
rubbishing London, but — more 
discreetly,, perhaps — from the 
Labour establishment as weft. In 
effect, tie Labour leadership, 
while not officially disassociating 
itself from, the ' quin lessen tially 
loony-London activities of the 
ILEA and the Brent and Haringey 
local councils, is letting it be 
-known that it intends to keep its 
distance. This does not represent a 
“split” in foe Labour Party so 
much as foe sort of sensible 
precaution anyone would take in 
the face of an associate who 
appeared, unfortunately, to be 
going off his head. ■ 
Independent voices added to. 
foe new anti-London consensus. 
The Audit Commission tut-tutted 
about the ■ rniwnanpgMTi enl and 
unsatisfactory service of many 
London councils and the practice 
of . political appointments. 
Vaguely - left' but non- 
Sfiated or ganizati ons pointed 
out that generalizations based on 
London — about, say, comprehen- 
sive schools — were unfair and 
misleading The serious left-lean- 
ing fness voiced its concern. First 
New Society, and then a few weeks 
later The Nov Statesman, drew . 
attention to the collapse of 
credibility and common sense in 
some Lomfon councils and the 
damage this was doing to progress 
rive causes generally. 

The term “orchestration” is 
sometimes used of this process. It' 
is misleading, at least in this ~ 
instance, in that it implies that all 
participants intended to play from 
foe same score: It just happened 
that it suited everybody, for their 
different reasons, to be playing the 
same tune at the same time. The 
total effect wasa hugely amplified 
chorus of indignation — all of it 
ally contradicting foe chores of 
two years ago of “Well, when you 
really get down to analysing it, 
Ken ana the left have' done some 
good things far London after all” 
(But that was a chorus that ivas 
orchestrated, brilliantly.) 

So, as I say, I could see London 
being isolated, and the downward > 
spiral of its- misery continuing^ 
with' nafoer'tiie rational leaders 
of foe IAbour Party, nor those of 
foe public sector unions whose 
members are running amok, pre- 
pared to come in and help sort out 
the mess. Far easier, for them, to 
play Pilate; white the -Conser- 
vatives, of course^ would be only 
too happy to Let socialist nature 
run its course. The tone of foe 
populist denunciations at foe 
Conservative party conference 
was wholly predictable. 

However, I underestimated the 


scale midsize of the Conservative 
. target. .It was. not only London 
local government which came 
-under a track, but local govern-; - 
in cm perse, the “town halls” were 
henceforth to be the enemy. ' ■ 

A few years ago this would have -i 
been unthinkable. Michael Hes- o 
el tine, Patrick Jenkin and Tom - 
King all in their cum repeated the 
required catch-phrases about .r 
partnership add local democracy. 'S 
Conservative councillors were still 
treated with the superficial courts- ft 
aes at least There are, of course, - 
considerably fewer of them now - 
titan there were. There is also a 
growing impatience among na- •> 

- tional Conservative figures with s 
■ what is seen as their pretensions- ^ 
and their whingeing — and ajppar- " 
ent inability to mike the grand ■■ 
efficiency savings foe government ~ 
expects. A decision seems to have 





that this government Das any 
■' interest at aD in maintaining the 
good health of local government. 

- But what bas taken me aback is 
the deafening silence .of the re- 
action. Where are local govern- 
ment’s friends? When one thinks 
of all the battles of the last seven 
years — over the new rate support 
. grant system, rate-capping, the 
mansion of the Manpower Ser- 
vices Commission into education, 
the imposition of corporation 
status on Docklands; when one 
adds up all the millions of pounds 
spent on campaigns defending 
local government; when one re- 
flects, indeed, on the most recent 
poll evidence (by MORI for foe 
Audit Commission) confirming 
tint, outside Inner London, foe 

- public is generally well satisfied 
with local government services, 
one wonders why there is not a' 
national shout of outrage at the 
new brutal centralism. 

Instead, - Kenneth Baker has 
lobbed two mcendiaiy devices 
into foe very stronghold of local 
govteument itself — education — 
and is met with only the most 
ragged and half-hearted answering 
fire. Two years ago ah Education 
Secretary- talking about city tech- 
nology colleges and an imposed 
settlement of foe teachers* pay 
dispute would not have got out of 
Elizabeth House alive. .. 

. Why this collapse of resistance? v 
There are, I believe, force reasons. , 
The first and most obvious is 
simple exhaustion. The second isa - L ” 
creeping rottenness at the core of * 
local government. I was wrong to - 
think that foe practice of political *- 
patronage and intimidation of : i 
career officials was confined.. to- ;. 
London. Many .of the big rities_ , 
and metropolitan boroughs are - -, 
infected as wdL Senior admin- _ “ 
;istrators~:and professionals " no ; 
longer have the Iteart to defend the - 
status quo. . "J 

- But foe third reason is the most 
in teresting that the Labour Party, * 
hoping for power after the next 
election, is happy to have the A * 
system as centralized as possible. : 
by the time it takes over. There 
should be a standard paragraph intfft

Tie reversal of any m^jor 
policy which has lasted far 60 
years must be counted si g nf fj - 


proces s. But there couM be no 
greater dehision. The switch in 
policy made yesterday is a 
change of tactics, not of heart 


rffli hU pa ni sm — an organiza- 
tiei i where history exerts so 
jgtent an influence — and 
directed by its leaders, it is 
doubly so. 

Yesterday’s vote by Sinn 
Fein, the political wing of the 
provisional IRA, to end its 
boycott of the Irish Parliament 
means that the Provisi onals 
will, for the first time in the 
existence of the Republic, have 
the possibility of a par- 
liamentary voice in Irish a£ 
&B& 

Some may see this decision 
as a defeat for the policy of 
principle above practice that 
Sinn Fein has traditionally 
pursued and a renunciation of 
an important part of its his- 
tory. Others may see it as the 
demise of a legend. No longer 
will Sinn Fern stand aloof as 
the guardian of pore repub- 
licanism, the role it has cast for 
itself For Sinn Fein both the 
suggestion of defeat and the 
sacrifice of principle may 
present risks. But they are risks 
that wifi have been carefully 
calculated fay its leaders. Only 
30 delegates dissented from 
the decision. 

For the Government of the 
Irish Republic and for. the 
British Government, the Siiro 
Fein vote may he regarded 
initially as something of a 
victory. Some wfll be tempted 
to see it as the recr uitment of 
Sinn Fein to the demociattc - 


north and south of the border. 
Bnt the IRA has long special- 
ized in exercising a leverage 
greater than any democratic 
power it might win by votes 
alone. Sinn Fein's sew- pos- 
ition opens up a set of political 
opportunities which require 
careful analysts and constant 
vigilance. 

Hist, the arithmetic of 
southern politics offers 
temptations to smati parties. 
For some years now, the 
balance between Hue Ga d! 
and Labour and the opposition 
Fianna Fail has been a fine 
one. In these c in aim y ya ncf^ 
which are likely , to persist for 
several years to come, two or 
three Sum Fein TDs could 
exert an influence over and 
above their numbers. They 
could disrupt the par- 
liamentary process or exact an 
unacceptably high price for 
parliamentary peace. Instabil- 
ity of this ksudm the politics of 
the Irish Republic has be- 
devilled Anglo-Irish inter-gov- 
ernmental relations before and 
could easily do so again. 

Sinn Fern’s participation in 
the parliament of the South 
could also complicate Anglo- 
Irish relations in another way. 
It win enhance the party’s 
respectability in some sections 
of the nationalist community 
in Northern Ireland. If Sinn 
Fein wins seats and takes an 
active part in Dublin politics. 


THE TWILIGHT ZONE 


How many of our older 
schoolchildren have, any 
knowledge tif the following; 
the development of Britain’s 
independent nudear deterrent; 
the history and causes of the 
Northern Ireland troubled 
since 1969; the origin and 
hopes of Britain’s entry into 
the Common Market; the post- 
war decline in Britain’s indus- 
trial p erfor m ance; the end of. 
empire and the development 


writing for students to drew 
upon. They: propose to 
galvanise historians into 
producing objective and bal- 
anced . literature on post-war 
Britain taigeted at a variety of 
levels in the hope that the 
supply will help to stimulate 
the market. 

The new institute proposes 
as a first step to start a 
systematic interviewing, pro- 
gramme of former ministers 


of the Commonwealth; and ::jmdi^sdfyii» ; ciife&toshea 
the changing philosophies and light both on general policy*

fortunes of our major political 
parties. 

The answer is not likely to 
be encouraging. Those who are 
assiduous readers of news- 
papers will have some know- 
IcSge. Those who rriy on 
school teaching and school 
text books will be barely 
knowledgeable at alL 

The reason is partly the lade 
of space on an overcrowded 
curriculum for subjects not 
covered in examination sylla- 
buses. The new GCSE exams 
will go some way towards 
bringing modem British his- 
tory farther into tile class- 
room, but the imbalance 
between prewar and post-war 
studies will still be very great. 

Last week saw a new initia- 
tive launched to counter this 
problem: the establishment of 


argue that examination sylla- 
buses at secondary and tertiary 
levels of education will not 
change until there is a substan- 
tial body of sound historical 


making and on specific events, 
such as theleaderehip struggle 
in the Conservative Party in 
the autumn of 1963 or the fell 
of the Heafa government in 
1974. 

There are already memoirs 
or published diaries for these 
periods but they are Inevitably 
inclined to be self-serving and 
partisan. Few ministers below 
the top rank ever write mem- 
oirs, and scarcely any dvfi 
servants (outride the Foreign 
and Commonwealth Office). 

The recent past is an aca- 
demic twilight zone. Today’s 
events are described and an- 
alysed in the media as they 
happen. Events of 30 or more 
years ago are the subject of 
expanding scholarly interest. 
The period in between fells 
uneasily into such subject 
areas as politics, sociology or 
current affairs, areas whose 
claim to be considered a fully 
fledged academic disciplines is 
still challenged, it is. a period 
that is ill served by historians 
wife the knowledge and hind- 


sight to place the events of 
those years in their wider 
context, and 91 considered by 
history students. 

The new initiative has ob- 
vious dangers. The human and 
financial resources devoted to 
the study of British history 
prior to 1945 are already hard 
pressed and it would be wrong 
to squeeze them further. Oral 
histmy has to be treated with 
caution. . One_bas only to 
compare one’s favourite auto- 
biographical stories with one’s 
contemporary diary entries to 
see that. 

There will always be a 
.question about the value of 
teaching recent history to pu- 
pils whose grounding in earlier 
periods of history may be 
negligible (and is unlikely to 
increase when they can choose 
to abandon tiie study of his- 
tory after two or three years of 
secondary education). Yet 
today’s schoolchildren and 
university students are 
tomorrow’s voters and de- 
rision-takers, and to send 
them out into the world with 
often only a rudimentary 
knowledge of the post-war 
history of their country is to 
deny them the vital piece of 
the jigsaw in explaining how 
Britain arrived at where rite is 
today. 

If tiie new Institute places 
the study of recent history on a 
sound academic footing and , 
stimulates its emergence into | 
the school curriculum, it will 
have achieved much. The 
project deserves well 


ALBANIA’S NEW ERA? 


In the West the death of the 
aged Albanian Communist 
Party leader, Enver Hoxha, 
eighteen months ago was de- 
scribed, inevitably, as the end 
of an era. Within Albania it 
was treated, just as inevitably, 
as a further stage in the 
continuous advance of that 
country towards communism. 
Since then, Tirana’s . aggressive 
, 'insistence on continuity has 
inindded with signs of un- 
certainty and shifts in policy. 

Yet still the post-Haxha era 
has not been inaugurated. 
There has been an end, but no 
be ginning . The five-yeariy 
Congress of the Albanian 
Communist Party which 


opens today may 
beginning. At very least* can 
be expected to reflect the 
changes that have taken place 
in Albania in recent ygrs™ 
indicate how united Hoxnas 
successors are about adapting 
to them. 

Albania has one of ^ 
.< youngest populations in the 
woritLThe average age of the 
population is 26 and 
of all Albanians are under 
. White their parents and grand- 
parents can remember a time 

when Albania bad a “ 
the wider world, then the 
communist world, then as an 
ally of China, todays young 
Albanians have been brought 
up largely in ignorance cd tne 
world outride as anything 
Sher than hostile, 
manv resoects better educated 


than their parents, they have 
been isolated from the youth 
culture of the West and even of 
the East 

It is becoming a p paren t, 
however, that isolation has 
neither stifled curiosity nor 
acted as a.banier. to what the 
communist authorities regard 
as contamination from West- 
ern ways. Aocordizw; to recent 
reports, the youthful popula- 
tion^ of Albania is not immune 
to partisanship which 
manifests itself as hooliganism 
at - sporting events; nor to 
{tisrnptive rowdiness in public 
places. It has also exhibited a 
penchant for what ;is pro- 
scribed. 

ft is becoming equally 
apparent: that the communist, 
system in Albania has, despite 
its strident pursuit of autarky 
and its ideological, distance 
from the countries of Eastern 
Europe, bred economic evils 
that are strikingly: ri Tn ^ Br to 
theirs. A generation has en- 
tered the work force knowing 
feat hard- work pies un- 
rewarded, tiiat innovation and 
originality are. frequently 
counterproductive' and that 
extralegal methods are more 
effective m reaching an objec- 
tive than legal methods. Alba- 
nians, akmgwith workers from 
Siberia to East Berlin, are now 
being, told in no. uncertain 
terms that their productivity is 
inadequate to provide the 
improved . living -standards 
thev* crave-; . : 


Now, toojn relation to tiie 
outride world, Albania ap- 
pears to be finding its self- 
imposed isolation increasingly 
difficult to sustain. Slowly, 
Albania has concluded dip- 
lomatic and trade agreements 
with other, predominantly 
European and non-aligned 
countries. There has bear a 
marked improvement in its 
relations with Greece, In fee 
Balkans only Yugoslavia (be- 
cause of the intractable prob- 
lem of the border province of 
KosovoX and in Europe as a 
whole only Britain (because of 
the unresolved dispute over 
Albanian gold), present ob- 
stacles to the re-entry of Alba- 
nia into the feplonumc world 
One aspect of Albanian, fife 
that has not changed is the 
omnipresence of Enver 
Hoxha. The image of the late 
leader has presided over all the 
recent changes and recog- 
nitions of change. His portrait 
is eveiwbere, his works are 
continually quoted. But is his 
name being perpetuated as a 
cipher to justify fee preserva- 
tion of the old regime? Is it 
bring used to justify change, to 
sanction what would — with- 
out the approval of the late 
leader — amount to an ad- 
mission of failure? Or does fee 
immortalization of Enver 
Hoxha reflect merely his 
successors’ fears of what sud- 
den change might do in a 
country used to rigid cer- 
tainty? This week's Party Con- 
gress may have an answer. 


LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 


Value of language skills to exports New colleges, 

from the Chairrnmaf the British their attitude towards language old \l£tP 


it wifl have strengthened its 
defences against any move the 
British government might 
wish to make against it in fee 
North. British governments 
have so far fought shy of 
proscribing Sinn Fein as a 
party, but this does not mean 
that it has not been (or should 
not be) considered after recent 
Sinn Fein successes at the 
polls. Proscription will now be 
that much more difficult 

A farther consequence of 
yesterday's vote is the likeli- 
hood of more deaths. Some 
may result from internal fend- 
ing if IRA activists seek to 
register their protest against 
. the decision through violence. 
But even those IRA com- | 
manders who support the do- i 
cisioa will need to ! 
demonstrate to their support- 
ers that the Armalite has not 
been superceded by the ballot 
box. 

Above all, Shm Fein’s do- 
tation gives that organization a 
new tactical weapon. The IRA 
is not capable of “defeating” or 
even destabilizing the Repub- 
lic or a part erf Britain. It can, 
however, attempt to outlast, 
the determination of a democ- 
racy to confront murderers 
and their sympathizers. 
Participation of Sinn Fein in 
the Parliament of the Republic 
will help to perpetuate existing 
tensions and difficulties both 
inside the British and Irish 
governments and between 
them. It is this consequence 
that London and Dublin must 
guard against in the months to 
come. 


From the Chairman of the British 
Overseas Trade Board 
Sir, Dr Adriana Mathecon’s ca- 
reers article (October 23) makes a 
number of important points about 
the value of foreign language skills 
in export maxketiiK. 

At the British Overseas Trade 
Board we have long been worried 
by the effects on Britain’s trading 
prospects of a national reluctance 
to fearo other languors. Our vice- 
chairman, HRH the Duke of 
Kent, has taken a particular 
interest in the subject. 

Most of this country’s cus- 
tomers are in noi^Enghsh-speak- 
ing markets, and many prefer to 
deal with firms prepared to ap- 
proach them in their own lan- 
guage. They are often critical of 
the apparent inability of our 
industry and commerce, with 
some notable exceptions, to do so. 

Seven years ago, in resp o nse to 
concerns of just this kind, a BOTB 
study group, led by our vice- 
chairman, confirmed that in many 
overseas markets British com- 
panies could not expect to com- 
pete effectively without a 
knowledge of tins local language. 

It found that very few firms 
were making adequate use of the 
available hwi g wa y training facil- 
ities, and that better liaison was 
needed between firms and the 
education world. It was convinced 
that industry and commerce 
should be much more positive in 

Syria warning 

From Rabbi Dr Sidney Brichto 
Sir, The breaking off of diplomatic 
relations with Syria by the British 
Government may appear to the 
average citizen as a logical and 
necessary consequence of fee 
proven collusion of tiie Syrian 
Government in the a tt m pt to 
destroy en El A1 plane in mid- 
flight. 

Pofific&ms and diplomats of the 
world, however, must have been 
stunned by fee boldness of fee act. 
They know that there were other 
options, such as the withdrawal of 
the British Ambassador in Damas- 
cus or fee declaration feat fee 
present Syrian Ambassador was 
persona non grata. 

Instead it chose to sacrifice 
commercial and political self- 
interest by cutting off relation- 
ships wife that power in the 
Middle East which, along with 
. Egypt, is the key factor in any 
settlement of the Arab conflict 
wife braeL & also risks the lives <rf 
its nationals firing abroad at the 
hands of Syrian-supported terror- 
ists. 

The British Government has 
-thus given a dear signal to fee 
nations of the world that it

Church heritage 

From the Chairman of Save 
Britain's Heritage 
Sir, To write about seating down 
an ‘’overbearing Methodist 
pulpit" and an “over-gothic 
Catholic altar" (leading article, 
October 20) grossly underesti- 
mates what is becoming an 
meteKdndty serious issue. 

Only lak week a Georgian 
interior of 1753 was totally de- 
stroyed. The building, the former 
Huguenot chapel m Fournier 
Street, Spitaffidds, is now a 
mosque, but ecclesiastical exemp- 
tion applies. Galleries, paneffing, 
Georgian pews and fear fittings 
were chain-sawn into little faeces 
and carted away. No record was 
made. 

The Church of England at least

Hospitals watchdog 

From the Director of the National 
Association of Health Authorities 
Sir, John Randle (October 24) is 
doing less than justice to fee NHS 
in accusing it of half-baked inspec- 
tions of private hospitals. 

The 19S4 Registered Homes Act 
and its associated regulations lay 
down the conditions of registra- 
tion for private hospitals and 
nursing homes and set out a series 
of st a nd ar d s which mist be main- 
tained These include staffing, 
food, condition of fee buildings, 
control of drugs and medicine and 
fire safety. 

Health authorities have been 
delegated fee reponsibitiiy for the 
actual registration and inspection 
of such premises and each one 
most be inspected by authorised 
officers on at least two occasions 
during every period erf 1 2 months. 
Inspections are essential to ensure 
that nursing homes are being 
operated according to statutory 
requirements. 

It is in the public interest that 


homes are of good standard and 
health authorities therefore take 
their responsibilities very seri- 
ously.

Economics of art 

From Mr David Gould 
Sir, Should we express sympathy 
to the National Gallery for their 
inability to purchase a painting by 
Manet for “something in the 
region of £3 million* (report, 
October 21) when it might well 
have been within the bounds of 
possibility for an astute director 
(wife an understanding set of 
trustees) to have bought the 
picture for an infinitely lower 
price at an earlier date? 

We are told in today’s issue that 
it changed hands for £500 in 1899, 
yet it would be more interesting to 
know fee date and the circum- 
stances and the price when it last 
chang ed h « T « fe - 

The mas in the street is 
eternally bemused by fee unreal 
economics of the art market and 
the enormous values set upon 
works of art By and large fashion 
dictates the monetary value, not 
the intrinsic quality. 

Last Tuesday (October 14) a 
large pastel, “The Sirens", by Sir 
Edward Burne-Jones, was re- 
produced in your pages. About 30 
years ago it was knocked down at 
Christie’s, as an unwieldy and 
unwanted item, for fee princely 
sum of six guineas. Alas, at feat 
time there wasn’t a director of any 
gallery in Great Britain wife the 
acumen to buy it; neither was 
there a sale room correspondent 
who would have seen it as a 
newsworthy item. 

If it is a policy for the National 
Gallery to buy at the top of the 
market, this puety sets a seal upon 
the frightful illusion that paintings 
are another form of currency. It is 
a ridiculous situation when paint- 
ings live in vaults as a “hedge 
against inflation" — as, I fear, 
British Rail may find out sooner 
or later.

Stranded whales 

From Professor W. S. Allen, FBA 
Sir, The comment appended to 
your photograph (October 30) of 
stranded whales in south-west 
Iceland does a grave injustice to 
the Icelanders when it refers to 
“the notorious Icelandic ritual 
slaughter known as the grind*. 
There is no such ritual in Iceland. 
Fbrtunatdy most of your readers 
are likdy to be better informed 
and will know feat this is exclu- 
sively a Fiaroese tradition.

Inner dty building 

From Mr Henry Low 
Sir, Prince Charles’s castigation of 
builders for not developing inner 
dty sites (report, October 29) 
prompts one to ask what became 
of the Government’s much 
vaunted register of vacant land? 
Since the register is not folfifling 
fee purpose for which it was set 
up, perhaps it needs fiscal teeth. 

If rites and buildings of zero 
rateable value were mark subject 
to a levy based on their current 
market value, their owners might 
be more inclined to release them 
for development 
Yours faithfully,

From the Secretary of the Associ- 
ation of Principals of Sixth Form 
Colleges 

Sir, The Minister of State for 
Education and Science has just 
published a glossy prospectus, 
subtitled “A new choice of 
school**, for the city technology 
colleges. Such colleges, I under- 
stand, are to be the answer to low 
standards in selected urban areas. 

In such a context, one might 
expect some exciting new perspec- 
tives, some innovative features 
not hitherto evident in the much- 
maligned State sector. 

It is surprising, therefore, to see, 
under the title, “Courses of study 
available in fee sixth form”, an 
almost exact reptica of an open- 
access sixth - form college's 
curriculum. Morever, this curricu- 
lum has been available in many 
colleges for the last 1 2 years; it has 
offered maximum opportunity to 
high-flyers, variety and depth to 
aQ A-JeveJ candidates, a second 
chance to those who fell at toe 
fifth-form fence, and hope to 
many who had struggled during 
their early school years. 

“Mixed Economy" [sic) and 
general studies' provirion has 
been available to an 16-19 stu- 
dents, the majority of whom have 
gone on to successful and satisfy- 
ing careers at 17+, 18+, or via 
higher education after structured 
and caring guidance from trained 


ON THIS DAY 


NOVEMBER 3 1960 

On November 2, I960, after a trial 
lasting six days bdpre Mr Justice 

Byrne, Penguin Books Ltd were 
acquitted of pubKshins an obscene 
article, rwmefy the imexpurgated 
edition of Lady Chatteriey’s 
Lover. The hay's unanimous 
oerdict enabled die publisher to 
begin the distribution of 200 JXJO 
copies of the book. Final sales were 
considerably higher. The Times 
leader below evoked a great deal af 
correspondence. The publisher. 
Sir Alien. Lane, replied to it at 
length on November 8 stating that 
it demonstrated a complete 
lack af understanding... " 


A DECENT RETICENCE 

A jury of nine men and three 
women have derided that D. H. 
Lawrence’s novel Lady 
Ckatterlefs Lover » not obscene. 
It was perfectly proper for than to 
decide this. No one else could do so. 
& is a matter of opinion, not of law 
A pd t hfl moment t iny hud so 
decided, as Mr. Justice Byrne said 

in bi ff qrmmjn g nfo “that IS the end 
of the case” It is likely, however, to 
be only toe beginning of much else. 
While Penguin Books Ltd. get 
reedy to do record business, mid 
while Sir ABen Lane will receive 
the congratulations of all those in 
many parts of the world who 
sincerely believe that a bad taboo 
has been broken and an unneces- 
sary restraint lifted, many equally 
sincere people, also deeply con- 
cerned about public and private 
morals and the general well-being 
of Bociety, will be asking them- 
selves exactly where the conse- 
quences wifl stop. For, in spite of 
the impressive parade of witnesses 
for the defence, well nigh all 
affirming thm the publication of 
Lady Chattetiey’s Lover could do 
nothing but good, it would not have 
been difficult to match them, 
bishop for bishop and don for don, 
with a similar pmade taking exact- 
ly the opposite view. 

This no more empha- 
size the feet that obscenity is not 
an immutable offence. It has no 
universal absolutes. It varies from 
society to society at any given 
moment, and within toe same 
society from age to age — 

Thirty years after his dea t h, and 
at least so for as Lady Chatierleys 
Lover is concerned, Lawrence has 
found a British jnry to agree with 
him. The question of the work’s 
obscenity within, the terms of the 
1959 Act has once for all been 

derided - TVt^ tin aryaol a gainst 

the jury’s verdict. Bnt on toe 
grounds of decency, and taste, and 
even morals, it is still possible to 
express dissent. It is hard to make 
the mqor premise of the book 
other than that Constance 
Chattedey was behaving naturally 
in being unchaste bofo before and 
toroughout marriage and was justi- 
fied in lying with one man after 
another until she found one to her 
satisfaction. Now that this novel 
can go into the hands of every man, 
woman, adolescent, and child with 
a jury’s blearing, is it possible to be 
sure it will hare no harmful effect 
on morals? To say the practice is 
already common is to go near to 
affirming that our society is one of 
those no further corruptible. This 
is tut true. In spite of all the 
divorce cases there ore plenty of 
people who do not behave in this 
fashion. Bren if there are many 
who do, society should surely strive 
towards there being fewer. To 
excuse Lawrence, as was done at 
the triah by explaining that he waa 
a pagan is irrelevant. Oura is still 
nqjpoeed to be a Christian society. 

All this, however, can be said to 
be no more than what has been 
adumbrated in many other novels. 
What makes Lady C hatterley’s 
Looer unique is that all the details, 
circumstances, and sensations of 
copulation are rnade explicit. Here, 
too, it may be argued that Law- 
rence is describing no more than 
what most adults, and nowadays 
many adolescents, hare experi- 
enced. But toe more reverently 
such an act is regarded the less it is 
talked about. A decent reticence 
has been the practice in all classes 
of society and much will be lost by 
the destruction of it. It » true, as 
the Judge warned toe jury, that 
they were deciding on Lawrence’s 
book and no other, but it is difficult 
to see where the law wifl now be 
rifle to make a stand. Lady 
Chatterlefe Lover was not saved 
by its Kterary merits. They did not 
arise. It was declared not to be 
obscene. A greet shift in what is 
permissible l egally has been made. 
But not morally. Yesterday's ver- 
dict is a challenge to society to 
resist toe diungw in its manners 
and conduct that may flow from ft. 
It should not be taken as an 
invitation to succumb. 

Cutting edge 

From Mr Guy Topham 
Sir. Sir John Elliot (October 30) 
should look again at fee wall of the 
former chapel in fee Condetgerie 
near Marie- Antoinette’s cell A 
guillotine blade most certainly 
bangs there, as I well recall, having 
winced when one of our children 
(wife a less fervid imagination 
than my own) felt its cutting edge 
wife a finger. 

Yoms faithfally,

From Mr £. M. Cockbum 
Sir, “The Government cannot for 
ever stand by .ringing its hands**. 
So says today’s first leader (“Mr 
Baker's big chance”, October 29). 

1 am sure Mr Baker will prefer 
fee advice of 1066 and All That: 
“They are ringing fee bells now; I 
shall be wringing their necks 
soon” (Walpole).

each of the few main events, 
though Erst prizes eluded him. 

The winner of the covered

MacShxnnoo, a piper from Ar- 
gyll who played an Argyll tone, 
the “Lament for Captain 
MacDongalT*. Murray Header-

In New York on Friday 
Sotheby’s sold a secretaire 
abattant, or writing desk, for a 
$2,090,000, or £1,412, 162. 

The piece was made by the 
French cabinet maker, 1 
Carlin, in about 1 780 aud it is 
mounted with ormolu and 
Sevres porcelain plaques of 
flowers by Vincent 
Tafllandicr. Several of these 
porcelam-mountfidpieces are 
known and most have: royal 
provenances. 

However, it is not known 
who owned this one before 
Baron Alphonse de Roth- 
schild in the last century. 

That one price accounted 
for almost half of the total of 
$4,547,730. or £3,072,791, 
with 10 per cent bought in, 
which was produced by the 
sale of French furniture and 
decorations. 

On Saturday afternoon in 
New York Sotheby’s offered 
more French furniture, to- 
gether with German i 
nese porcelain and other 
works of art from the Patino 
family. The Patino silver 
coilection had been sold by 
Christie's earlier in the week. 

The total for the Sotheby’s 
session was $8,091380, or 
£5,467,149, with only 4 .per 
cent, or seven of the 141 lots, 
bought in. 

An American coHectar 
$797,500, or £538,851, for a 
pair of Louis XIV ormolu- 
mo anted bouDe marquetry 
and ebony cabinets. They 
were decorated with figures 
representing Wisdom and Re- 
ligion flank ed by medals in 
ormolu. 


Dr Robert 5. MulHken, 
chemical physicist, whose mo- 
lecular orbital theory bridged 
-the gap between the atom and 
the molecule, died on October 
3L He was 90. 

- The theory provided scien- 
tists with the meansof tracing 
the complex paths which elec- 
trons travel in molecules. 
Mofliken, known as “Mr

Robert Sanderson Muffiken 
was bom at Newburyport, 
Massachusetts, on June 7, 
1896. As a child, showing 
more interest in fauna than in 
molecules, he became a keen 
amateur botanist, a passion 
that remained with mm for 
the rest ofhis life. 

When a 17-year-old at Mas- 
sachusetts instit ute of Tech- 
nology (MIT) - where his 
farther was professor of organic 
chemistry - the young student 
delivered a graduation oration 
on "The electron: what it is 
and what it does” That was in 
1913, the year that the Danish 
physicist Niels Bohr an- 
nounced his quantum theory 
of spectra. 

Mulliken graduated in 
chemistry from MTT in 1917 
and his first job was in a 
laboratory for research on 
oison gases at American 
[diversity. He then served for 
a few months in the Army 
before joining the New Jersey 
Zinc Con 
in rubber 

In 1919 he went to 
University where, under 
W. D. Harkins, he did re- 
search on atomic nudeL His 
PhD thesis was on the partial 
separation of mercury iso- 
topes ‘ by irreversible 
evaporation. 

HeremafncdmCIricagoasa 
national research council fol- 
low, moving to Harvard to 
study the isotope effect in 
band spectra. There he read 
SommerfekTs Atombau and 
Spektraltinien which suggest- 
ed paraBdisms between elec- 
tronic states of molecules and 
those of atoms. 

Inspired by what he read, he 
resolved to bring new order to 
the data on baud spectra by

His efforts in tius direction led 
to attempts also to understand 
molecular electronic states as 
more or less resembling those 
of atoms. 

In 1925 he went to .Europe 
to meet scientists who were 
working in the same field, 
returning two years later for a 
further round ofviszts. 

Discoveries were . being 
made by others. In 1927, when 
MulHken was assistant profes- 
sor of physics at Washington 
Square School, New Ytnfc, the 
German scientist Friedrich 
Hand published his theory

Air Vice-Marshal B. C 
Yarde, CVO, CBE; died on 
October 29 at tbe age of 81. 
The most important episode 
in his career was when he 
commanded the RAF station 
at Gatow during the Berlin 
airlift. 

Brian Courtenay Yarde was

He was educated at BedfimL

Soviet scientists ran into 
opposition with their latest 
idea for improving coal output 
When miners beard of the 
proposal to spray water, thick 
with microbes, over coal feces 
they sent their aonn repre- 
sentatives to protest; to them 
microbes were synonymous 
with disease. 

They were not satisfied mtil 
a foil-scale investigation was 
made by the Donetsk Institute 
of Latov Protection, the 
equivalent mi Britain's Safety 
and Health Inspectorate, 
which convinced them that the 
microbes were not necessarily

than a kilometre deep.

automatic switches to bring it 
to a standstill when the meth- 


pomt Minas bad to wait: 
the air pomps to dear it before 
the new system was in- 
troduced. 

Yet the idea was patented, 
the Russians say, before the . 
Second World War, though it 
was not needed then. It was 
based on tbe disco very by n 


During the Second World 
War he served first in France, 
at RAF headquarters; between 
1940 and 1944 in stan jobs' m 
the Far East and Middle East , 
and from March 1944 to April 
1945 as commander succes- 
sively, of two bomber stations 
in Britain.' He was' thrice 
mentioned in despatches. 

After a year as deputy 
director ofbomber operations 
at the Air Mijaistiy, he was 
appointed senior director of 
GranweU,^ where bt remained, 
until his posting to Gatow in . 
June 1947. : 

When he-. arrived- there it 
was a comparatively quiet 
airport; but soon, when the 


post be led the RAF contin- 
gent in the Coronation proces- 
sion, and a month later was 
l to command No 62 


In 1954 he became com- 
mandant-general of the RAF 
Regiment and inspector of 
ground combat training. He 
retired from the service in 
1957, ami then ran a catering 
business in Hampshire, where 
he lived. 

Yarde was not the sort of 
man about whom anecdotes 
are. told, but he wa&.a solid, 
upright, methodical officer 
who proved equal to tbe big 
emergency that be tod to free. 

He is survived by his 
Maijorie, and their 
daughters. 


The result of the microbe 
spray was to increase output 
and wages. The mines were no 
longer subject to lengthy 
cleaning and maintenance clo- 
sures, and tbey were healthier 
and safer places. 

For die microbes are a 
specks of bacteria that feed on 
methane, the fire-damp that is 
the major cause of mramg 
explosions. Methane Inks hi

beds and is released as the coal

per cent with air the m ixtur e fa

In shallow mines the normal 
forced ventilation is sufficient 
to disperse the gas but as 
mines get deeper the air 
currents become feebler and 
cannot dear it. Moreover, 
mines using modern high- 
speed techniques release . 
methane hi larger quantities

Mining in tbe Douetz Basin, .

European part of the Soviet 
Union, has exhausted shallow

found methane-consuming - 
bacteria in the bottom waters 
of rivers, lakes and the sea. 
where conditions are suitable, 
for production of the gas. ' 

Those bacteria are now one 
product of Soviet biotechnol- 
ogy factories, according to Dr. 
Mikhail Ivanov, director .of the 
Institute of Microbiology, 
Soviet Academy of Sciences.

Hardisty, one of the 
finest of a& amateur football- 
ers, died on October' 31. He 
was 65. 

John Roderick Elliott 
Hardisty was bom at Omster- 
le-Streeton February 1, 1921. 
His lather was a shopkeeper, 
who moved to Bishop Auck- 
land when Hardisty was ja 
child. 

At the age of 17 Hardisty

side wbenthe “Bishops" were 
the tending amateur tiam in 
the'- country, and famous 
ghoul tbe world. During 
the Seoood World War he

so managed to spend a lot of

oats. Demonstrating that the 
behaviour of different etec- 
trans might be expected to be 
the same, the way was there* 
fore dear to attempt to assign 
quantum numbers to elec- 
trons in molecules. Tbe mofo- 
cnie, like the atom before it, 
was now, through the language 
of mathematics, opening up to 
man’s understanding. 

Four yems later he coined 
the word “orbital" to describe 
the theory which brought the 
processes of the dues'"" 
bond between molecules 
harmony with tbe 
quantum system. . . 

This work was basic to 
almost everything in molecu- 
lar structure that has since 
followed. With the molecular 
orbital theory, Mulliken de- 
stroyed a stereotype: that at- 
oms form molecules as bricks 
form walls, with each brick 
retaining its own original 
identity. He showed that when 
a molecule is formed the 
whole balance of particles 
within the atoms is changed. 

The notion that the atom 
wa«t q'mply a miniatur e of the 
solar system was wiped out. 
The atom’s internal order 
emerged as a mathematical 

model " c ha r fo ig an nlnfo 8 * 

incomprehensible fluidity of 
forces. In this miniature 
world, with the electrons dr- 
ding an atomic nucleus 1 
their identities like droptets( 
a cloud, arithmetic gave 
to matrix mathematics. 

D urin g the Second World 
War foe government's pluto- 
nium project employed 
Mnlliken's talents. From 1942 
to 1945, still based at Chicago 
University, he served as direc- 
tor of editorial work and 
information, co-ordinating 
eight privets on the bomb. In 
1955 be was scientific attach^ 
at the US embassy in London. 

Hie was foe recipient of 
numerous awards and hon- 
ours from institutions around 
the world. In 1928, at the age 
of 32, he was one of foe 
youngest to be elected to the 
National Academy of Sci- 
ences. In 1983 he retired from 
Chicago University where 
had been professor of pffi 
and chemistry for . 52 years. 

In addition to over 200 
he wrote Molecular 
(1969, withWiliis 
B. Person); and Diatomic 
Molecules (1977) and 
Polyatomic Molecules (1981), 
both with Walter G. Ennier. 

MulHken pursued his re- 
searches with intense concen- 
tration, -patience and 
meticulous thoroughness. In 
the face of nature, he felt 
humbled. “Nature plays tbe 
perfect Sphinx and is com- 
pletely adamant to every 
clumsy attempt to force the 
locks that guard her secrets”, 
he explained. 

“Yet to the man who finds 
the correct combination for 
one ofthese- that is, tlte truth - 
site yields without the 
resistance". The result, he 
added, was an “intimate . . . 
feeling of communion with 
nature". 

His wife, Mary Helen, died 
in 1975. He is survived by 
their two daughters.

Twenty still 
held hostage 
in Lebanon 


Yesterday’s release of Mr 
David Jacobsen, after 17 
months of captivity in Leba- 
non. gave new hope to the 
families and friends of the 
Americans still held there. 

But these expectations 
could not bn mediately be 
shared 1^ the famili es of the 
13 other hostages, of different 
nationalities, who have fallen 
foul of Lebanon's political 


the silence was < 

The following is a coun try- 
by-country Hsl of the 20

ital in September and October, 
but not held by Islamic Jihad, 
may also be freed. 

A Boeing; 727 and a Lear 
executive jet both chartered 
by the US State Department 
were standing on the tarmac at 
Lamaca yesterday evening . 
But Dr Jacobsen's release 
appears to be more a test of 
mutual trust between the kid- 
nappers and the American 
Government than the start of 
a wholesale hostage release. It 
is quite possible that the 
remaining hostages will have 
to wait in captivity for several 
days before their freedom is 
assured 


indispensable to such a solu- 
tion. After the expulsion from 
London of the Syrian ambas- 
sador for allegedly conniving 
at the attempted bombing of 
an El-Al Airliner in April, the 
Syrians deariy wish to be 
portrayed as a responsible and 
humanitarian nation. 


The Syrian Minister of 
Information said on Saturday 
that his country was still doing 
all it could to secure the 
release of all foreign hostages 
in Lebanon, where it main- 
tains up to 25,000 troops. 


The Syrians certainly stand 
to gain most from any 
involvement in the hostages' 
release. — and in Beiruh, the 
Syrians are regarded as being 


Rumours were circulating 
in Lebanon all day yesterday 
that France may also be 
negotiating the imminent re- 
lease of its own five hostages 
in Lebanon — perhaps as part 
of the same package nego- 
tiated by the Americans

Two killed and 12 


injured in Durban 


From Michael Hornsby, Johannesburg 


Two people were killed and 
at least a dozen others injured 
on Saturday when police broke 
up dem on st ra tions fay young 
Muslims in Gape Town and 
violence erupted at a rock con- 
cert in Durban. 

In Cape Town, the police 
used quirts (long featbar- 
tbooged whips) time times to 
dispose the Muslim you th s 
who had gathered on The Par- 
ade, an open space in front of 
tire city hail used for outdoor 
markets. 

The youths were p rotest i ng 
against a recent dedsion by 
the General Synod of the Ned- 
erduhse Gerefbnneerde Kerk 
(NGKX the branch of the 
Dutch Reformed Church to 
which moot Afrikaner whites 


to be “a false] 

According to the Govern- 
ment's Bureau Tor Information 

the most serious incident came 
after about 480 Mnstims re- 
fused to disperse. The pro- 
testers throw bottles and 
stones at the police who reta- 
liated with quirts. Two police- 


men were injured and nme 
youths arrested. 

According to the 1980 cen- 
sus, Cape Muslims (classified 
as CoJoored or mixed-race in 
South Africa's racially-de- 
fined population register) 
number about 160*000 — 
roughly half the comity's tot- 
al Mnslim population. Most of 
tire others are Indiana in 
NataL 

In Durban, violence occ- 
urred throughout Saturday 
when imraly — and apparently 
drank — Mack youths went on 
a rampage at a rock festival fa 
the King's Park sports sta- 
dium organized by Radio Zulu, 
a station upended by the state- 
controlled Snath African 
Broadcasting Corporation. 

Fights broke out, innocent 
fans were stabbed and stoned, 
ami bottles were thrown at the 
police. The situation worsened 
as people were leaving the sta- 
dium. The Navy had to be call- 
ed in to protect shops. 

A police spokesman said 
two people died from stab 
wounds. 


Appeal to 
Britain on 


refugees 


By A Staff Reporter 


The United Nations has 
asked Britain to double its 
intake of Vietnamete:.*1)oat 
people” as an example to 
other countries. 

During a visit to London 
last week Mr Jean-Pierre 
Hocke, who. recently took over 
as the UN Hi gh Commis- 
sioner for Refugees, told Sir 
Geoffrey Howe, the Foreign 
Secretary, and Mr Douglas 
Hold, the Home Secretory, 
that other countries amid not 
be expected to take in mote of 
the refugees unless B ritain 
doubled its intake. 

Mr Hocke’s appeal followed 
a similar one from Hong 
Kong, made after a new influx 
of rougees landed there: 

Mr David Waddington, 
Minister of State at the Home 
Office, recently agreed to look 
at a new -list of n?$es but 
made no promises. ; . 

Britain has accepted 500 
Vietnamese refugees in the 
past 12 months and more than 
12,000 since the exodus began. 


EEC may act on 



Continued from page 1 
the British side is the evidence 
that Syrian intelligence ser- 
vices are transferring weapons 
and explosives for terrorist 
a tmHfs through Syrian em- 
bassies and the stale anime, as 
was the case in the Hindawi 


European governments are 
now expected to be won round 
by the hard evidence supplied 
by Britain, although it is 
unlikely that they wfll agree to 
all the measures Sir Geoffrey 
has pin on the table. 

The MI5 evidence provides 
proof of the Damascus 
connection, not just because 


of the ride played by the 
vDrLot 


Syrian Ambassador, Dr Lout- 
ouf Allah Haydar, but because 
of the vital operational role of 
two key intelligence officials 
in Syria, Brigadier-General 
Muhammad ai-Khouli, bead 
of Air Force Intelligence, and 
his deputy, Lieutenant-Colo- 
nel Haytham Said, the man 
who briefed Hindawi before 
he left for London. 

General Khouli is a dose 
confidant of President Assad 


ofSyria, and is known to have 
urmnfl hats with banian and 
Libyan intelligence services. 

He carries out sensitive mis- 
tions for President Assad in 
the Arab world and is held to 
be the key link between 
Damascus mid a network of 
terrori s t organizations. It is 
believed to be General 
Khoulfs intelligence network 
that supplied the weapons for 
the attack* on Rome and 
Vienna aiports last December. 

Colonel Said is considered 
to be one of the toughest and 
most cunning men in Syrian 
intefligence.Until the Hindawi 
affair, he travelled extensively 
in Europe on false documenta- 
tion. . 

Although there are two 
other mam intelligence wings 
in $yria, General and Military, 
the Air Force body is seen as 
the. most important and the 
most powerful. 

"■ Last year. no cute were 
maA». in General Khonli’s' 
budget, even though the bud- 
get of the Air Forceitsdf was 
reduced.

Sources on the manifesto 
group wifi be putting forward 
plans for a nationally set core 
craricuhmr aimed at avoidtaz 
the introduction by some left 
wing subjects of controversial 
fringe subjects like peace

Mr Baker is understood to 
be opposed to the imposition 
ofa uniform curriculum, fait it 
is dear that the- closeness of

Mis Thatcher’s dose asso- 
ciates believe that the. transfer 
of powera away from the local 
authorities to schools and 
their governors will have big 
electoral attractions. 

Indeed many who, like Mrs 
Thatcher, have always been in 
favour of a- voucher system, 
under which nazente would be 
able to spend the value of their 
children's education, now be- 
lieve their objectives can be 
achieved by the course on 
which Mr Baker has 
embarked.

Nature notes 


Song thrashes are tinging 
in the mornings in the 
of England: this is a sign 
that they have taken tip their 
breeding territories for nest 
year, though they win stop 
singing for a whole when life 
weather turns really cokL 


Redwings are spreading 
through the countryside, and the 
other winter thrushes, the field- 
fares, are starting to come in 
from northern Europe. 


Short-eared owls are arriving 
on the East coast: they are 
daytime hunteis, flying low and 
noiselessly over and 

moots. Small flocks of them that 
have just crossed the sea some- 
times roost together among root 
crops; after that they separate 
and live solitary Lives. 


Hen-harriers arc also appear- 
ing over open land: they glide 
with upturned wing tips. Most 
of the immigrants are brown 
females or juveniles, known as 
“ring-tails” because of their 
barred tail-feathers. 


There has been a late burst of 
colour on the trees. Birch and 
beech trees on the chalk HiTte 
have had brilliant yellow leaves, 
and in towns the plane trees 
have multi-coloured foliage. 
Most water vegetation is now 
brown and broken, but the 
bulrushes (or reed maces) stand 
high, with their long dariobrown 
see dhead s still firm- ^

Managers 
challenge 
Opax with 
£1 56m bid 


By Alison EadSe 
A group of 30 executives 
from printing and publishing 
company McCorqnodale re- 


vealed plans over tie weekend 
for a £156 million manage- 


— "-“J* d 


ment buyout, the largest ever 
in Britain. 

The bid is being ted by Mr 
John Holloran, the chkf exec- 
utive, Mr Simon Williams, 
American operations director, 
Mr Nicholas Htaoys, finance 
director, and Mr Geoffrey 
Dee, the company secretary. 
They are potting up £300^XX) 
of the management's total £1 
mini on equity. . 

The deal Iras been , put 
together by Prudential-Bache, 
the British merchant banking 
arm of the American invest- 
ment bank. Mr John Mac- 
Aithur. chairman of Pru- 
Bache, knew tire 
McCorqnodale • management 
well through advising them 
for 10 years when he was at 
Klein wort Benson. He rang 
Mr Hofloran three weeks ago 
with propdsalsfora manage- 
ment buy-out, because he said 
the McCorquodale ^ manage- 
ment waS'gggg and the com- 
pany was .being imdertftdmxl 
by Norton Opax’s offer. 

The all cash offer is bring 
made by a, new. company 
Datafinat300ppershaiie,40p 
above Opax’scash aftmiative 
and lOp above itsshare offer. 

Instilutions investing 
throng the Etectra Candover 
Direct Investment Phm are 
providing £33 million equity 
capital, taking the total equity 
to £34 million. 

The banking finance is be- 
ing underwritten by Standard 
Chartered Bank. The Pruden- 
tial Insurance- Company- of 
America, Pru-Bache’s ul- 
timate parent, wOl participate 
in the financing. . 

Norton Opax, whose bid 
closes on Friday, was yes- 
terday considermgwhether to 
raise its ofier. Mr Give Chalk, 
of merchant bank , Samuel 
Montagu which is advising 
Opax, said the company was 
looking carefully at its options. 

Opax raised its stake in 
McCorquodale last Friday to 
14.99 per cent, the limit at 
which it can buy shares for 
cash without making a higher 
cash offer to all shareholders. 

The other crucial 
McCorquodale shareholder Is 
Mr Robert Maxwell, pubhsber 
of the Daily Mirror, who has a 
14.6 per cent stake. He as- 
sented .a 10.85 per pent 
shareholding to Opax, but has 
yet to decide on vetting his new 
3.75 per cent state. 

If Opax’s lnd feils and Mr 
Maxwell accepts the 300p buy- 
out offer, he stands to make a 
profit of £3 million. 

The total size of the buy-out 
package is £1 87 million, which 
radudes facilities for refinanc- 
ing existing McCorquodale 
debt 


Cabinet to keep 


spending down 
despite teachers 


By Rodney Lord, Economics Editor 


The Government is sticking 
to its public spending phwf in 
spite of an extra Bi billion 
added by- the proposed in- 
crease in teachers' pay. But to 

dp so ft will adopt more 
optimistic forecasts about the 
level of unemployment and . 
the rare of pay increases for 
public servants. 

Ministers are hoping to 
finish their long-drawn oat 
d i scussi o ns da next year’s - 
public spending this week. If 
they succeed the Chanodkfe, 
Mr Nigel Lawson, may deliver 
his ■ Autumn Statement to 
Itaritoraeat a week t o morrow. 

The Govtsnmem fa anxious 
to announce its spending 
plans -wen before the British 
Gas share price is fixed a 
fortnight on Friday. 

The small nwnnaerial group 
chaired by Lord Wbitdaw 
known as the Star Chamber, 
still has a ^ few issues to resolve. 
They indude parts of the 
education budget un- 
connected with teachers’ pay 


such as provision for science. 

But it is already dear that 
the individual programmes 
can only be. fitted into the 
agreed total if the reserve 
included in the plans is much 
lower than this year’s and if 
the assumptions underlying 
demand daermined spending 


are made, more optimistic 
than originally intended. 

The proposed settlement on 
teachers’ pay has com - 

.^Sti^ChanSS/Seii^^ 

this over four years is nearly 
twice the amount originally 
proposed by Sir Keith Joseph, 
the previous Education Sec- 
retary, at £2.4 Irillkm. 

Next year h would add £490 
minion to public spending in 
England and Wales over and 
above the £3.2 bfilion addition 
to focal authority current 
expenditure originally pro- 
visionally agreed in July- Of 
this £200 million would be 
financed by the taxpayer and 


the rest by a 2-4p increase in 
focal rates. 

Some relaxation in public 
spending control in election 
war is already expected in 
financial markets. Neverthe- 
less, the possibility that next 
year’s plans may be overspent 
will act as a constraint on the 
sire of tax cuts in the Budget. 

As last year, there win be no 
forecast of government rev- 
enues in the Autumn State- 
ment. If by the Budget, oil 
revenues look likely to be 
higher than the $15 a band 
assumed in the medium term 
financial strategy then that 
will finance some of the extra 
public spending, restoring the 
planned room for tax cats. 

The forecast of the econ- 
omy, which the Chancellor 
will also pres e nt in his state- 
ment, win show growth recov- 
ering from this year’s 
depressed levels to around 3 
per cent Inflation is expected 
to rise slightly to about Vh. per 
cent 


LBS optimistic on economy 


The* London Business 
School, whose views are most 
in fine with Government 
thinking, is optimistic about 
prospects for the economy 
next year. In its latest forecast 
it projects economic [growth of 
3 per cent and inflation no 
higher than 35 per cent by the 
final quarter of 1987. 

According to LBS the fell in 
the pound offers British in- 
dustry a remarkable compet- 
itive advantage in world 
markets. The crucial issue is 
how far it will be able to take 
advantage of this. 

Demand next year will ex- 


By Our Economics Editor 
pand with consumer spending 
at home expected to grow by 
4.1 per cent and wodd trade 
growing twice as fast as this 


at 6.2 percent Although 
expects a good simply 


response from industry it is 
forecasting an increase in the 
current balance of payments 
deficit to £2.4 billion. 

In the absence of any fiscal 
or monetary tightening, ster- 
ling is expected to go on 
felting, reaching 64 on the 
trade weighted index by the 
end of 1 987 and lower the year 
after. The resulting increase in 
competitiveness is expected to 


boost manufactured exports 
by 15 per cent over the next 
two years. 

At home personal consump- 
tion will go on growing rapicOy 
boosted by tax cuts and a 
further reduction in the sav- 
ing ratio. Some of this will be 
satisfied by imports which win 
rise by nearly 5 per cent next 
year and in 1988. ■ 

Inflationary press ur es will 
be tempered next year by a 
deceleration in pay settle- 
ments and higher productivity 
bat fay the end of tire year the 
fall m the pound will be 
feeding through into prices.

CBI heads for 
conflict over 


pay restraint 


By Edward Townsend, Industrial Correspoodectt 


Britain’s employers look set 
fora tag conflict over calls for 
pay restraint when they debate 
publicly wages, the trade 
unions and employment at 
next week’s Confederation of 
British Industry annual con- 
ference is Bournemouth. 

A drop divide is shown in 
resolutions among the 195 
from CBI regional councils, 
companies and trade associ- 
ations, on the controversial 
question of cuts in pay rises, 
an issue that has become a 
preoccupation of the CBI 
leadership. 

The CBI eastern regional 
council says that “it is a 
negative attitude and bad 
psychology to call for wage 
restraint in order to become 
competitive.” 

It adds that industry should 
take positive action to raise 
productivity “and thus attract 
new investment and new jobs 
in the UK.” 

In contrast, the North West 
counci] resolution endorses 


high real wage, high 
productivity economy, and 
the emphasis should hence- 
forth be upon unit wage costs, 
the aim being wage settle- 
ments which, coupled with 
other changes, stabilize or 
reduce unit wage costs 
recognising that for some this 
may mean no wage increase at 
all, for others an increase well 
above the rate of inflation.” 

And the Welsh council 
urges the conference “to be 
more concerned with improv- 
ing efficiency and monitoring 
and publicizing unit costs than 
with the level of wage 
settlements.” 

For the first time,ordinary 
members have been able to 
select by ballot the resolutions 
they wish to debate. 

Previously, they have been 


chosen in secret by a commit- 
tee of CBI leading figures.

CBI director gen- 


Beckett, the 
eral, and says that “pay re- 
straint is crucial if the British 
economy is to continue to 
grow and real jobs are to be 
created. 1 ” 

The West Midlands councfl. 
however, believes that “too 
much emphasis has been 
placed upon the level of 
earnings and the rate of in- 
crease in earning s, and that 
this has provided Govern- 
ment with an excuse to avoid 
hs responsibilities towards 
reducing interest rates.”

IoD expresses concern 
oyer executive bonuses 


By Out Industrial Correspondent 


Britain's high-flying, high- 
earning and exclusive band of 
top company executives are 
increasingly being rewarded 
by performance-related bonus 
payments which can now 
account for as much as half of 
their salaries. 

Aocordingtotfae Instituteof 
Directors, the bonus concept 


that has come naturally to the 
Id of US 


competitive work! of US busi- 
ness, is now sweeping through 
Europe. “Companies ranging 
from multinationals down to 
those employing fewer than 


250 are rushing to join the 
ills 


payments-by-resui 
bandwagon." 

But the institute warns that 
with the rise in executive base 
salaries showing no signs of 
abating in Britain, the 
country’s economic compet- 
itiveness could be damaged 
seriously if bonuses become 
an accepted norm even when 
profits tafl. 

In the latest issue of its 
journal Director, the institute 
says that more than half the 
United Kingdom’s company 


directors now have some 
performance-related element 
in their pay. Recent studies 
indicate this figure will rise 5- 
10 per cent next year. 

It rites the earnings a year 
ago of Sir John Harvey-Jones, 
chairman of ICL whose basic 
salary of £220,000 was 
boosted to £312,991 by 
£74,800 of performance-re- 
lated bonuses plus a variety of 
accumulated entitlements, 
including stock options. 

One of the first big com- 
panies to apply cash in- 
centives was BOC, where the 
system was introduced by Mr 
Richard Giordano, the 
country's highest paid exec- 
utive. Mr Giordano, whose 
salary is currently £883,100, 
has no performance reward 
included other than stock 
options. 

The IoD says: “The comm- 
ittee of non-executive direc- 
tors that sets his salary 
believes the chairman should 
operate on a longer view than 
would be implied by cash 
bonuses on yearly results.”

BUSINESS AND FINANCE 


THE TIMES MONDAY NOVEMBER 3 1986 


GILT-EDGED 


Yields are overestimating 
the risk of inflation 


Since the summer, markets 
have see-sawed between too 
great a concern with recession 
and too great a preoccupation 
with strong growth and infla- 
tion. In my estimation, the 
prospect of world recession is 
remote. 

The major economies are 
growing at a moderate rate 
and ample financial and fiscal 
stimulus lies in reserve, 
particularly since nominal 
GNP growth is undershooting 
targets in most leading coun- 
tries. Market tremblings over 
rapid inflation are premature, 
even though consumer prices' 
growth in leading nations is 
set to accelerate sughtly. 

It is true that isolated 
examples of inflation and 
deflation exist and in such a 
climate the prudent portfolio 
manager will moderately in- 
crease weightings in cash and 
gold. 

What needs to be empha- 
sized is that the recent global 
retreat to liquidity has been 
encouraged by a high, risk-free 
return on cash. High real 
interest rates and low inflation 
everywhere have made it 
attractive to hold interest- 
bearing cash and have en- 
couraged deferral of 
expenditure and investment 

Ironically, it is probably this 
very liquidity which has en- 
couraged over-cautious cen- 
tral banks to delay the co- 
ordinated decline in interest 
rates initiated in January this 
year. 

Against this backcloth, it is 
hardly surprising that world 
bond markets have been going 
through a disappointing time. 
The Ml in the gilt market 
although heavier than in other 
financial markets, has by no 
means been isolated. 

The key question is whether 
weakness in world bond mar- 
kets, including gilts, will per- 
sist At the heart of this issue is 
the outlook for world inflation 
and as I see it the prospective 
inflation vista is less bleak 
than markets anticipate. 

It is true that inevitably the 
level of world and domestic 


other employment costs ad- 
justed for productivity). 

What this means is that in 
Britain consumer prices 
should rise from 3 per cent a 
year at present to about 5 per 
cent per annum next year. 

In the United States, a 
similar increase in consumer 
prices to about 4 per cent per 
annum is probable next year, 
while in Japan and West 
Germany consumer prices 
growth will accelerate to about 
2 per cent per annum in 1987. 

These anticipated rises in 
inflation are not unduly 
worrying. Certainly, they are 
lower than bond yields in 

Global retreat 
to liquidity 
encouraged by 
risk-free return 

most major nations would 
have us believe. Specifically, 
current British bond yields of 
about 1 1 per cent appear to be 
discounting too great an infla- 
tion risk, unless one supports 
the extreme view that British 
inflation will rise to near 
double figures fairly soon. 

My own forecast of about 5 
per cent per annum next year 
comes in at the lower end of 
market expectations; under- 
pinning this is a moderate 
deceleration in the rate of 
increase in British pay settle- 
ments and a slightly stronger 
domestic productivity trend. 

The extremely high risk 
premium in gilt yields is 
probably explained by market 
uncertainty over the future 
course of sterling. Its perfor- 
mance is, of course, a crucial 
variable for overseas investors 
and for domestic interest rate 
management 

Interestingly, there are signs 
that some offehore investors 
are taking a more relaxed view 
of sterling instruments, since 
differentials between sterling 
bonds and those on mark and 
yen bonds have widened to 
extremely attractive levels 
(between 5 per cent to 7 per 


payments worries, excessive 
domestic credit creation and 
wage inflation and political 
uncertainty. 

In relation to American 
fi nancial instruments and for 
US dollar based investors, 
however, the yield differential 


each occasion, fell back and 
resumed its underlying down- 
trend. A similar outcome is 
likely this time round. 

Two things are needed to 
keep the dollar firm on a 
sustained basis: rapid Ameri- 
can growth and/or widening 


on gilts looks more appealing short-term interest 


(about 3.3 per cent per 
annum), assuming sterling 
stability against a weak dollar. 

On the domestic front, one 
of the problems is a heavy 
funding programme in the 
remaining months of this 
financial year. There is also 
concern about the 
Chancellor’s economic and 
monetary strategy. This in- 
volves toughing it out in the 
belief that current economic 
difficulties are less severe than 
his critics would have us 
believe. 

In broad economic terms, 
the Chancellor's approach 
makes considerable sense: the 
last thing the “real” British 
economy needs is a further 
injection of interest rate in- 
duced deflation, at a time 
when our nominal GNP 
growth is undershooting tar- 
gets. However, this offical 
hands off approach represents 
a high risk policy. More than 
ever, it places interest rate 
management as a hostage to 
fortune namely oil prices, the 
American dollar and US in- 
terest rates ). 

It is hardly surprising there- 


differentials in favour of the 
dollar. Neither of these is 
likely in the foiseeable future. 

For a start, the US growth 
path in the fourth quarter of 
the year will probably remain 
sluggish. Also, following the 
latest interest cut in Japan, 
short-term US rales are more 
likely to move down than up 
(a 0.3 per cent discount rate 
cut is on the cards after the 
Congressional elections on 
Tuesday). 

In addition the US authori- 
ties are epxected to continue 
talking the down the dollar to 
stimulate domestic growth 
and further reduce the trade 
deficit, while West European 
and Japanese exchange rate 
intervention will probably ex- 
tend to curbing only the speed 
of decline of the dollar and not 
arresing its fell 

Similarly, no significant re- 
lief for the gilt market is likely 
to come from oil prices, 
although the recent replace-: 
ment of Sheikh Yamani, may 
give oil prices a temporary 
firmness. In the longer term, 
the oil market will remain

Consumer prices are now, at that sterling could foil by as 
worst, set to rise back to their much as 8 per cent against the 
“core” or “underlying” rates continental currencies and the 
namely growth in wages and yen in the next year, given 


gilts is lukewarm. 

The Chancellor’s 
approach 
makes a 
lot of sense 

Overall, while we may well 
not see a further 1 percent rise 
in base rales and while there 
remain grounds for believing 
that gpJt yields are forming a 
base, it is hard to identify the 
source of a sustained recovery 
in gilts in the next month or 
so. 

It is unlikely, as happened 
in Februiy this year, to come 
from the US bond market 
where inflation fears rather 
than domestic growth worries 
look likely to dominate finan- 
cial markets. And despite 
recent strength, the dollar 
remains vulnerable. 

You may recall that on five 


continental currencies and the separate occasions since Feb- 
yen in the next year, given niary, 1985, the dollar experi- 
growing British balance of enced similar rallies and, on 


the $10-16 per barrel range. 

What now seems likely in 
the short term is a “basing 
out” period for gilts. Beyond 
this, whether the market 
continues to drift sideways or 
enters an upward recovery 
phase is largely dependent on 
the performance of sterling 
and market views of domestic 
inflationary expectations. 

On my assumptions of a 
gradual lowering of market 
expectations on British infla- 
tion and moderate downside 
in sterling against the other 
major Euro-currencies and the 
yen, with relative stability

tions are probably being set 
for an improving gilt market 
in the medium and longer 
term.

They have agreed lo hold 
further negotiations on the 
subject of technology transfer 
and a joint venture for a manu- 
facturing plant in Shanghai. 

Under this initial agree- 
ment, Plessey will assist Factory 
520 to establish the centre, and 
will train Chinese engineers 
who will provide technical 
support for Plessey ISDX

Bond rally 
continues 
as growth 
stays low 

From Maxwell Newton 
New York 

The bond market has enjoyed 
a substantial rally ia the brat 
two weeks, one that has car-' 
ried the. December Treasmy- 
bond futures contract up from 
94*n on October 16 to 98 5 J2 
last Thursday, an increase of 
3JS percent. 

The pice of the 30-year 
cash bind has risen from 
93*32 to 95 3 *n over the same 
period, an increase of 23 per 
cent. The yield on the 30-year 
bond dropped from 7.77 per 
cent to 7.59 per cent over the 
pond. 

It is now a p pare n t that the 
bond market Ira decided there 
is only a ■hfawi risk of an

a “surge of mowth^in the US 
in the immediate or Meed in 
the prospective future. 

The factors that have inhib- 
ited the bond market stoce 
April (when the rally was 
roaghly terminated Following 
(he then sharp rise in the yen 
and the mart — aroariiig fears 
of imported Inflation) have 
now been discounted. 

These indoded the fear of a 
dollar devaluation (which was 
first arrested in early July 
with the central bank “narrow 
bandhg” of the yen, the dollar 
and the mark), the fear of an 
ofl price breakout which was 
pot to rest by the foDnre of the 
recent Opec meeting, the fear 
of the Fed’s “gmg-bo" mone- 
tary policy, which was ter- 
minated in September after it 
was seen to have failed to 
reduce medium and long-term 
interest rates, and the atfhn- 
siastic promotion of the erro- 
neous “surge of growth*' 
economic forecast by the Wall 
Street economic community — 
now seen to have been based 
yet again on the failed mone- 
tarist theory. 

The US consumer, who 
carried the hardest of stim elat- 
ing the meagre economic 
growth achieved this year, is 
approaching exhaustion. The 
rate of growth of consmner 
instalment debt which fi- 
nanced so mnch of the expan- 
sion has fallen to less than half 
of the 20 per cent growth rate 
that applied in 19«4 and 1985. 

Of the throe industrial lead- 
ers — the US, Japan and 
Western Europe — two (foe 
US and Japan) are now likely 
to continue to experience eco- 
nomic stagnation during 1987. 

Japanese economic in- 
dicator are pointing to contin- 
ued hard times as that nation 
attempts to negotiate a signifi- 
cant switch in the emphasis 
from export-led to domestic- 
led economic growth. 

This problem of promoting 
growth m Japan is token ia foe 
US bond market to be foe 
rationale for the switch in foe 
Bank of Japan's policy on a 
cut in foe discount rate. It is 
also taken to be foe principal 
force behind foe acquiescence 
of the Bank of Japan and the 
Ministry of Finance in agree- 
ing to the 4 per cent deraha- 
tioo of foe yen that has taken 
place in foe but week or so. 

Thee has been no official 
reaction to this latest change 
in Japanese foreign exchange 
policy as-yet in tira US. 

But there is no doubting a 
major breach has occurred. 
The yen is now trading around 
160-161 to the dollar com- 
pared with die 153-154 in 
force since early July. 

A devaluation of the yen on 
that scale is exactly foe opp-

Cartel economics are very' 
simple. The cartel may 
choose to control the level of 
its production or the prke at 
which it sells it — but not 
both. This is the cfilemma of 
the Organisation of Petro- 
leum Exporting Countries’ 
(Opec). 

The ofl. price rises of the 
1970s were fuelled by short- 
ages, created -either by 
embargoes, wars or prpduc- . 
tion cutbacks. Opec began life 
as a price-setting cartel with - 
an official pricing structure. 
Bat it was the fact of short- 
ages, initially genuine, sub- . 
sequently Opec-induced, 
which supported high prices 
and kept them rising, allow- 
ing Opec to hang together. 

Opec would sell to the 
West only at official prices 
and production took care of

Those -who were present when 
foeStbck Exchange floor was 
opened by the Queen wfll 
recall that accousticaQy ft 
provided a magnificent con- 
certhalL J 

: Given its design and loca- 
tion other uses are less ' im- 
mediately obvious. Yet with 
wsBL over half the trading in 
stocks and shares already 
moved away 'from the floor in 
the 'first week after Big Bang, 
is spite of the computer 
problems, the question of 
whether die floor has a future 
as a dealing area is going to be 
asked more and more. 

The basic- problem in any 
market system is to provide a 
local point of contact between 
potential buyers and sellers. 
This problem is enhanced 
when, as in the Stock Ex- 
change, a large number of 
similar, but not identical, 
items are traded. - 

In the foreign exchange 
market, for example, where 
the number of actively traded 
currencies is small, the market 
has never bad a physical focus 
at which aD orders are ex- 
posed. In a stock exchange 
trading several hundred if not 
several thousand securities, 
other solutions have to be 
found. 

The traditional London 
method has operated on what 
might be called the “souk” 
principle, where jobbers in 
different categories of stocks 
group themselves in different 
areas of the floor, just as 
dealers in antiques, clothes, 
pets and green groceries group 
themselves in different parts 
of the Portobeflo Road. This 
was done partly for the conve- 
nience of the brokers and 
partly so that the jobbers 
could keep an eye on each 
other. . . 

This system of multiple 
price-mams, is contrast to 
New York, Frankfurt or To- 
kyo systems of single official 
or semi-official price-makers, 
has the important con-, 
sequence that in London there 
is no stogfe market price fora 












The speed with which som 
given stock at any one time. 
Potentially there are as many 
prices as there are market- 
makers. The dosing prices so 
confidently displayed in the 
media are no more than a 
consensus judgement of the 
prices currently quoted by the 
jobbers as a whole. 

The introduction of com- 
puterized price displays ass- 
embling toe competing prices 
-of the rival market-makers 
does not alter this situation^ 

The prototype for this sys- 
tem is that used by the over- 
the-counter market (now 
Nasdaq) hi the United States. 
Originally this sprung up as an 
association of local brokers 
spread all over that- vast 
country, each providing a 
service to local investors in 
local stocks. Because of this, 
many of the OTG broker- 
dealers were in effect monop- 
oly jobbers in their own local 
specialities. 

Tracbtionally, too, com- 
panies which developed to the 
stage that they commanded 
national invertor interest re- 
moved themselves from the 
OTC market and tran s fer r ed 
either to the American Stock 
Exchange or to the Big Board 
(NYSE). : 

The introduction of the 
Nasdaq national price display 
system transformed the situa- 
tion. Local Nasdaq broker 
dealers can now transmit their 
prices across the country and, 
through feeder services such 
as Reuters Monitor, 
worldwide. 


firms retreated from the floor last week sarpzfced many 


Leading companies such as 
Apple Computers are on 
record "as saying that in this 
context they see no advantage 
in transferring their listing to 
the NYSE. They already re- 
ceive all the investor exposure 
they require and some believe 
that the system of competing 
market ma k e s . on Nasdaq 
gives them gre at e r liquidity 
than the New Yoric system of 
concentrating aD orders at the 
one specialist's pitch. 


precisely to service a market 
Systran that had no focal 
trading floor. The question for 
London is Whether the adop- 
tion of a very similar system 
wfll cause the London floor to 
be deserted and wither away. 
On this point sharp dif- 
ferences of opinion between 
the rival potential market- 
makers are arising. 

Some, typically those who 
have linked themselves to 
merchant banks, brokers or 
overseas' banks who have 
important fund management 
or institutional client in- 
terests, beBeve that the core of 
their business will be with 
large professional investors or 
their agpnts, all of whom wfll 
be equipped with information 
devices such as SEAQ or the 
various proprietary services 
Which wfll fired from it. 

Such investors, it is 
daimpd l win prefer to check 
tiie price on their screens for 
themselves and to contact the 
market-marker of their choice 
either direct or through the 


mstirational salesman of a 
broker. 

Others believe that such a 
system of screen-based, tele- 
phone conducted business will 

simply not be practical in aD 

Worries persist too about 
die new computer systems’ 
capacity to cope. 

For each firm the argument 
may be settled by the manner 
in which it controls its 
“book”. 

For the traditional jobber's 
dealer this was largely instinc- 
tive, just as it is for a busy 
bookmaker just before a big 
race. AD deals will be meticu- 
lously recorded and analysed 
after the event, but the dealer 
under fire in the front line will 
not try consciously to analyse 
this information as a guide to 
his derision rwfcfag - ‘ 

The new model scientific 
market-maker by contrast will 
record the deals as they are 
done directly into their com- 
puter systems which provide 
them with instantly updated 
records of their book po- 
sitions. of their net value and 
profitability . 

Also av ailabl e will be the 
prices being bid and offered by 
competing market-makers 
arid tire volume in the stock in 
the market as a whole. The 
price making process wfll be 
driven by infonnation and not 
by instinct The problem wfll 
be whether in every case the 
human mind will be able to 
accept and make use of all the 
infonnation available. 


Banks poised to open retail 


services 


By Richard Thomson 

Buying shares is abort to 
become a great deal easier foe 
the ordbnuy small-scale inves- 
tor. The ripples from Big Bang 
wfll be felt rapidly in the for 
flung branch networks of the 
dealing banks where, if all 
goes according to plan, ef- 
ficient share baying services 
wfll be avafliMe to everyone. 

This may seem a somewhat 
surprising move by the batiks. 
Barclays, Lloyds, Midland 
and National Westminster all 
announced retail share deafiog 
services of one sort or another 
even before foey discovered 
whether their securities mar-, 
kets operations in the City 
were going to be successful. 

None m them is wflfing to 
mess pubtiefy how. long the 
investment: hi a retail share 
service wfll take to make a 
profit - or the sine of the 
profit 

Unquestionably, there is a 
desire to squeeze as ranch 
advantage and potential profit 
out of their move into the 
CSfyls securities mar kets — 
and passing on the benefits to 
their branches is a natural 
option for the clearing banks. 

In the past the banks offered 

to accept buying or seffing 
orders from personal cus- 
tomers, which they would then 
execute through City or total 
stockbrokers. Now they can do 
the whole operation under 
their own room, which gives 
them &r wider marketing 
possibilities- And they have 
the people to do it 

It ism accident that in most 

of the hunks, the people in 
charge of setting up the new, 
retail share services are from 
the stDckbrokhtg or jobbing

to offer a better share dealing 
service to retail xnstoniera te 
not due solely to the City 
revolution. Two other , trends 
have helped to pash them so 
rapidly towards offering B% 
Bang- related services in their 
branches. 

One is file growth of wider 
share 0 wararste|%simired'On by 
privatization, witiiout which 
there would be little reason to

mere heavily to the pubfic 
-aai^htbepr^itaMe. 

The other is the swing ra 
bunking towards offering more 
conumsBten and fee earning 
services. These are profitable 
and effective in attracting and 


ittuerunagly competitive at- 
mosphere of British hankiBg. 

The combination of forth 
and com nritme at being put 
into the new share services by 
some banks was summed up 
by Mr Garin Oldham, a 
toner Wedd Ptafocher part- 


Barclay's new operation, 
B*rdayshare. u Thi* is. more 
than jMt another bott-oa ser- 
vice. We are m arke ting this 
service heavfly because it ia a 
major part of oar strategy for 
the fetore” he said. 

NatWest estimates that up 
to 12 par cent of all share 
transactions each year are 
handled by the dotting banks. 
But those tend to be for very 
small amowuts and accomit for 
a tiny, pr oporti on of total stock 
market turnover. They wifi be 
worth even less to the brokers 
as commission rates laH after 
Big Bang, as the banks expect 
them to. 


So for Bardays appears to 
be- patting mere hope titan 
most into Kg Bug services 
for private cnsfnmers. It has 
set up Bardayshore as an 
independent broker, largely 
operating through branches. 
In the aid days, said Mr 
OUbam, customers tot their 
share deafing orders through 
their bunk branches. The or- 
der wa* passed to a stock- 
broker who executed it with a 
jobber and passed it hack to 
the bank. It was time consum- 
ing and expensive — the baulk 
would normally charge a han- 
dfing foe of its own on top of 
the nsul commission charges* 

“Big Bug allows ns toavoid 
aff these steps. The process 
should he simpler and 
cheaper. We ami to antama te 
the whole process, partly fay 
wring oar existing branch 
terminal network," he said. 

Mr Oldham said also that 
Bardayshare would not be a 
discount, cut-price brokerage 
serVice. Customers will receive 
a range of services inc lud ing 
the .boric dealing fodfity, 
share administration services 
to bundle the paperwork, ad- 
vice and research, price 
screens inside branches and 
monthly news letters. 

. The banks are missing no 
opportunities to offer services 
from which to earn fees. 

“Bardayshare is a broker in 
itself,” added Mr Oldham. 
“But Barclays de Zoete Wedd 
will provide the research and 
advice and wfll execute the 
dealing orders where 


customers. Later rathe year it 

wfll offer the more flexible 
share dealing service where 
easterners make their own 
dedsaeas. 

NatWest fs taking things 
more cautiously. “Consumers 
wiD see tittle immed ia t e dif- 
ference at NatWest 
branches,” said Mr Nefl 
Stopfey, a Conner Fielding 
Newson Smith partner, now a 
director of Comity Securities. 
“We have reduced to 12 the 
■umber of brokers with whom 
we deal and in the long run the 
idea is to bring ell that 
business m-heuse. But that 
won't happen within the next

No firm will concentrate 
exclusively on the market 
Boor, nor has any yet said that 
it wfll abandon it altogether. 
However, the speed with 
which some firms retreated 
from the floor last week 
caused surprise. 

Warburg Securities, part of 
Mercury International Group; 
reduced its floor presence to 
only IS out of 70 traders. 
Others are thinking of follow- 
ing suit Chase Manhattan, 
winch owns the former stock- 
brokm Simon and Coates and 
Laurie Milbank. will decide 
this week whether to take 
most of its traders off the 
floor, leaving only a token 
team for the government bond 
market 

The dual situation is in port 
a recognition of the fact that in 
an actively traded stock small 
buyers tend to match up big 
sellers and vice versa. As a 
former senior member of the 
Stock Exchange Council once 
said: “The institutions are tike 
a titter of piglets; when mother 
says ‘roll over*, they all roll 

over together". 

Some are seeking a solution 
by providing an automatic 
collating mechanism for 
small routine orders “at the 
market” whereby the client or 
his intermediary can record a 
deal by merely keying into the 
computer, leaving brokers and 
market-makers alike free to 
concentrate their minds on the 


The Stock Exchange is plan- 
ning such a system as an 
extension to the SEAQ price 
display system for introduc- 
tion in a couple of year’s time. 
Such systems are already in 
operation in New York, To- 
ronto and Nasdaq for all 
orders of 1,000 shares or less 
that are not the sublet of 
limits 

It is perhaps when these 
systems come to fruition that 
the future of the market floor 
will finally come into question 
as their availability will largely 
destroy the argument that a 
screen/telephone based sys- 
tem cannot cope with a flood 
of small orders. 

They will also put added 
strain on the market-maker 1 
who, ifhe turns his back on his 1 
screen for 10 minutes, foils to 
keep his price in line and may 
in consequence find , himself 
die recipient of numerous 
small orders which have been 
automatically booked to him 
by die computer on the basis 
of his published price. 

For die medium term at 
least the Stock Exchange plans 
to maintain the floor as the 
necessary focal point for foe 
traded options market. 

The author, a director qfDewe 
Rogerson, is expre&ing his 
own views. 


The case of Lord Hanson and the 
Courage pension fond is likely to to 
have proround long-term effects on 
saving for retirement. For it questions 
the mutual trust that lies at the heart 
of company pension schemes. 

The corporate pension industry has 
only recently reached the zenith of its 
influence and power through trans- 
forming retirement for millions, 
lobbying government, and investing 
assets that have grown from £20 
billion to £170 billion in 10 years. 

The fall was only a matter of time. 
The pension movement started 
among companies dug deep into their 
communities, whose owners thought 
their offices and factories, products 
and workers were there to stay. That 
era of stability is dead: now even the 
largest companies are vulnerable to 
takeover or competition. 

The more recent rapid spread of 
funds — stemming more from labour 
demands, legislation and tax reliefs, 
than earlier benevolence — brought in 
companies that could not offer the 
life-time commitment between capital 
and labour which suits the corporate 
pension system. For better or worse, 
few now envisage working lives being 
spent with one employer. 

Inflation, which shareholders had 
to meet as guarantors of final salary 
benefits, soon forced these companies 
to see their pension contributions as a 
controllable cost Recent research by 
securities group Hoare Govett found a 
long list of companies whose pension 
costs accounted for more than a 
quarter of pretax profits. 

No wonder finance directors axe 
paying ever closer attention to 
improving the investment perfor- 
mance of their funds. A new survey 
published this morning*, suggests that 
more than a quarter nave changed 
management in two years, reflecting, 
as the the report notes “realization by 
many finance directors that pension 
fund surpluses can have a more 
immediate impact on company assets 
than any of their other activities”. 

Healthy competition for fond busi- 
ness also puts pressure on investment 
managers to join the rush for short- 
term profits, for instance by seizing 
takeover premiums. Court judgments 
reinforced the trend by obliging 
trustees to maximise returns regard- 
less of ethical considerations — further 
undermining the aura of high-minded 
self-interest which earned pension 
funds their unique tax reliefs. 

These seeds of destruction for the 
cosy world of corporate pensions are 
now germinating fast on the rich food 
of fond surpluses, built up because 
inflation gave way to high interest 
rates and share prices and because 
millions left schemes through redun- 
dancy, losing any interest in surpluses 
earned on their savings. 

The pension industry successfully 


resisted attempts to use the surpluses 
to give a better deal for the majority 
who have lost or changed jobs or to 
equalize tax treatment of savings. But 
it cannot resist market forces. 

Many companies, perfectly reason- 
ably, reduced their swollen contribu- 
tions. When a few wanted to withdraw 
tax-free money from the funds, the 
Inland Revenue spotted a loophole. 
The 1986 Finance Act set a maximum 
5 per cent surplus. Anything above 
that had to be used to increase 
benefits, cut contributions or make 
fully-taxed withdrawals. In tandem 
with the threat of takeover for any 
company that does not squeeze the 
maximum return from assets, that has 
made every company look at its 
pension fund as an integral part of its 
flnancfiRj even though more than three 
quarters of funds include contribu- 
tions from employees. 

Tie scope is immense. Hoare 
Govett estimated that the surpluses 
are enough to give the average quoted 
company a five year contributions 
holiday and boost annual dividends 
by 28 per cent. 

Most big companies to act so for 
have thoughtfully divided surpluses 
between contribution savings and 
benefits. The publicity in the Courage 
case will persuade many more to stick 
to their bare commitments and pocket 
all the suxplus for shareholders. If they 
do not, a predator wilL 

The Imperial Group, of which 
Courage was part, took a traditionally 
benevolent attitude to its many long- 
serving employees. It voluntarily 
improved pensions for those already 
retired to mitigate inflation. It was 
taken over by Hanson Trust. And a 
study of Hanson by Hoare Govett 
suggests that removing surpluses on 
the Imperial funds could be worth 
£25-30 milli on a year to profits. 

Lord Hanson is now rethinking. 
The thought that a takeover raider 
with a swiftly passing interest might 
remove the surplus built up jointly by 
Courage and its employees caused the 
brewery workers particular anger. If a 
continuing employer takes out the 
whole of a surplus, employees benefit 
from the company's stronger finances. 

But one implication is the same 
whoever does the surgery.The idea 
that employees indirectly own their 
savings in a corporate pension fund, 
always suspect, is now untenable. 
That should be more effective than 
any advertising in persuading a new 
generation of workers, for whom 


company schemes will be optional 
from 1 988, to opt instead for personal 
pensions.

Sunday, October 26th, was Bus Deregulation Day 
(outside London). 

This simply means that there will no longer be 
unnecessary restrictions over starting a new bus service. 

It's a radical step so, naturally, it's one which comes 
with some conditions. But provided you meet those 
conditions and have safe and suitable vehicles, you can 
start. 

You don’t need traditional buses. A coach, a minibus, 
or even a taxi will do. Any vehicle, in fact, which meets 
the safety requirements for the job you have in mind. 

In order to register a new service, you will need a 
Public Service Vehicle (PSV) operator's licence, and 
you must have adequate maintenance arrangements. 
Whoever drives your bus must also hold a PSV driver's 
licence. 

The Transport Act 1985 means that bus operators 
have much more freedom to run local bus services. 

A broad network of deregulated services has already 
been set up to meet consumer needs. 

But in this competitive environment, there are 
plenty of opportunities for new entrants. 

Perhaps you could find a gap in the current services. 
Outperform an existing operator on price and quality. 
Provide a service that’s more tailored to local needs. Or 
bid for a subsidised local authority bus contract. 

So long as you are within the safety and licensing 
requirements, opportunities are now there. 

If you are interested, complete this coupon and 
you'll be sent free booklets which will answer your 
questions in detail.

( USM REVIEW ) 

Directors’ share sale raises 
company control questions 


Directors' shareholdings, both 
the percentage of stock held 
and the manner of its pur- 
chase and disposal can be a 
thorny issue. 

It is particularly important 
in the case of USM companies 
where the level of free equity is 
usually lower than on the 
main board and the directors 
often still own the majority of 
the equity in a company. 

Two recent instances high- 




light some of the problems, whole story. 


growth record in the previous 
three years on a prospective 
price earnings ratio of 16. 

Bad news sur&ced, how- 
ever, with the announcement 
that first-half figures for the 
ament year were down to 
£129,000 (£276,000). The de- 
cline was attributed to invest- 
ment ax the beginning of the 
year in additional personnel 
which temporarily has clipped 
profits but this was not the

On October 22, a week 
before these figures, there had 
been an announcement that 
tire managing director and the 
finance director bad resigned 
and their 25 per cent holding 
had been placed. 


Assuming that the investors 
who took the stock were 
warned that the interim

Another instance of 
■ significant chfl u gp in control 
of a USM company through 
the directors’ shareholding be- 
ing sold occurred with 
Thorpac. 

This company to tire 
USM five years ago in July 

1981. It distributes deep freeze 
packaging and micr o w a ve 
cooking ware and during in 
lift as a public company its 
profit record has been volatile. 
But last year tire company 
enjoyed a strong recovery to 
make £231,000 (£75,000) pre- 
tax profit — its best year since 

1982. 

The family owners of the 
business have now reached an 

age where they wish to retire 
flour active business li ft mmI 
consequently have sold 54 j 5 
per cent of the share capital of 
the company. 

Some of mb stock has been 
placed with institutions and 
25 per cent has been pur- 
chased by Mr Michael 
Moseley, tire chairman of the 
Jeyes Group, which was the 
subject of a management 
buyout from Cadbury 
Schweppes in March 1986. 

Although Mr Moseley does 
not intend to bid for the whale 
of the issued capital of 
Thorpac, the news of the 
management sent the 

share price soaring from 153p 
to 19(A). 

Id different cir c um stances it 
might not have been such a 
happy story and both ATA 
and Thorpac illustrate that 
where tire directors continue 
to own the majority of the 
shares in issue, the level of 
influence of the public 
shareholders in controlling tire 
company’s actions is more 
limited than in tire case of 
larger stocks.

A SPECIAL REPORT 


/x . ■ 

'Si 

*• . _ ■ 


Television is celebrating its 50 th birthday. But 
the industry is facing unprecedented challenges 

Under siege for 

the big jubilee 




The BBC must be wishing that 
it was celebrating the golden 
jubilee: of British television at 
a happier time. EastEnders 
may continue to head the 
ratings but most of the pub- 
licity generated by the 
corporation these days has 
little to do with the success or 
quality of its programmes. 

Norman Tebbit has let it be 
known in no uncertain terms 
that he bolds the BBC guilty of 
sustained anti-Tory bias and 
intends to produce chapter 
and verse. 

The appointment of 
Marmaduke Hussey as the 
new chairman of governors 
has been widely interpreted as 
a move by Mrs Thatcher to 
bring the BBC to beeL 

A Panorama programme, 
alleging links between Conser- 


vative MPs and far-right ten- 
dencies, led to libel actions 
and a humiliating High Court 
apology. 

AD this would not matter 
quite so much if the be- 
leaguered BBC (fitector-gen- 
eraL, Alasdair Milne, did not, 
every two or three years, have 
to go cap in hand to the same 
politicians who are so busy 
attacking him tO plead for tUl 
increase in the licence fe&So 
long as the BBC depe nds fig 
its income on a tax: authorized 
by tiie government of the day, 
it is doomed to be embroiled 
in political controversy. 

Mr Milne can take consola- 
tion from the feet that such 

pressure u nothing new. It was - 
a Labour prime minister, Har- 
old Wilson, in the 1960s, who 
brought in Lord Hill, as 
chair man, to sort out the 
corporation’s supposed anti- 
left bias. ’ ^ 

It was the Labour Party that 
complained about the sla nt o f 
the infamous documentary. 


Yesterday's Mm, 

. Bat r fffa’rimis between the 
BBC and politicians do seem 
to have readied a new low in 
recent years. __ 

A suggestion that the BBC 
should take advertising, a 


was tweeted by die Peacock 
Comnnttee. But calk for the 

BBC to be broken up. and the 

more“commerriaF areas stud, 
into private sector, have not 
abated. ITV has largely es- 
caped such controversy, not 
because individual pro- 
grammes have been less 
contentious but beca us e it s 
revenue comes from advertis- 
ing. Not having to go to the 
Government to make a case 
over a licence fee, it can 
manage to keep a lower public 
profile. 

Viewers are happy because 
they perceive ITV as being 

“free” and the BBC something 

ft pays for. Of course, ITV is 
paid fix* as well bat only 
indirectly. Hardly anyone who

buys a box. of disposable 
nappies costing £3-25 can 
realize that 47p of this goes on 
TV advertising. Even if they 
did, it would be difficult to 
Tiwtfft a connection with the 
quality of the programmes. 
ITV is not entirely in sulated 

from the outside world. 


means guaranteed and. run- 
ning a commercial station is 
hardly the licence to pnnt 
money that ft was in the early 
days-Also franchises have a 
limited life and the present 
ones come up for renewal in 
three years’s time. 

In the long run the future 


is likely to be affected fer less 
by the dictates of government 
than the power of technology, 
particularly cable and DBS 
(direct broadcasting by 
satellite). 

These developments have 
the potential to offer to the 

■ . tniwaCMl 


existing system of sending 
signals through the air from 
transmitter masts is, because 
of the shortage of wavelengths, 
not capable of being extended 
much beyond the four chan- 
nels we already have. 

But fibre-optic cables can

SS-rfd— 


receive hi gb-powered DBS sig- 
nals, all that is needed is a 
dish-receiver the size of an 
umbrella. . 

When such systems make 
headway in Britain, the lin- 
ptications for the .e»sju® 
broadcasting authorities, BBC 
and ITV, are tremendous. 
With their audiences dimin- 
ished as viewers desert them 
for video and the new chan- 
nels, the BBC will be harder 
pushed to justify levying a 
licence fee, and nV will have 
more difficulty winning 
advertisers. 

More than that, the pro- 
grammes offered by cab^jura 
satellite could force the BBC 
and ITV into completely re- 
thinking their schedules. The 
optimistic view of the new 

technologies is that they will 
offer healthy and mwk- 
needed competition to a BBC- 
ITV duopoly that has had 
things too cosy for too tong- 

The pessimistk: view i s that 
more wiD simply mean worse, 
with the bad driving out the 
good. _ 

Supporters of cable aim 
satellite like to make an 
analogy with the arrival m 
1955 of ITV. Not all ITV 
output was dross and. in any 
I racp, the competition boosted

The first television 
service was started 


by the BBC from 
Alexandra Palace

on November 2 1936. 
But it was not 
without problems.

Like the invention of the 
cinema, the coming of tele- 
vision was not the work of one 
man but the convergence of a 
range of technical develop- 
ments by several people in 
several countries. 

What is beyond dispute is 
that the television service 
started by the BBC from 
Alexandra Palace in North 
London on November 2, 
1936, was the first in the world 
to transmit regularly and use a 
high definition (405-line) 
system. 

To begin with, the BBC 
broadcast only two hours a 
day and programmes were 
seen by the few hundred 
people, all in the London area, 
who were wealthy enough to 
afford sets. 

Early television receivers 
cost about £100, or as much as 
a small family car. Only 
20,000 sets had been sold 
when TV was suspended with 
the outbreak of the Second 
World War. By then, however, 
the new medium was starting 
to show its potential

The best-known, but the

A danger for television in 
the late 20th ceatnry, feh 
particularly by pabtie-serrice 
broadcasters, is that the mer- 
gence of new media such as 
sa te lli t es, along with inter- 
national media moguls and 
conglomerates, repre sents a 
threat to politically ftmded 
television and to £mopean 
cultural standards. 

This i s finding expression is 
consortiums of broadcasters 
who are intent on making 
programmes that endorse 
European as opposed to 
American values. 

In this country Channel 
Foot has joined forces with 
five broadcasters: Antenna 2. 
ORF (Austria), RAI (Italy), 
SRG (Switzerland) and ZDF 
(West Germany) in the Earn-

The controversy’ about how 
television should be finpajJ, 
so thoroughly aired in the 800 
or so submissions made to the 
recent Peacock committee, 
hinges on the theory that they 
who pay the piper may also 
rail the tone. 

Unease about the prospect 
of complete deregulation is 
reinforced by early broadcast- 
ing history which is peppered 
with swindlers and quacks 
who could ply their wares m 
complete safety to wide audi- 
ences across the airwaves. 

In Britain, a shortage « 
wavelengths led to the re- 
quests made by big store 
groups and national news- 
papers to operate individual 
broadcasting stations being 
refi^dinfoe early 1920s. 

That shortage also daadea 


“ This would be too high a 
privilege to give a few big 
advertisers at the nsk of 
lowering the general standard 
of advertising.” 

This for-sighted recognition 
of the likely problems later 
helped the Independent Tele- 
vision network to avoid many 
of the difficulties experienced 
by Continental counterparts. 

Under the UK system, 
commercials are restricted to 
an average of six minutes per 

hour. _ . 

These breaks are inserted 

within and between pro- 
grammes but separated non 
them so as to avoid “inte- 
grated plugs” such as a pre-

valuable outlet for minority 
views and interests as well the 
test television showcase for 
classic movies. . 

Breakfast television arrived 
in 1983, with the BBC’s 
Breakfast Time coming on the 
air days before the rival 
offering of a new company, 
TV -am. 

Starting with the admirable 
intention of presenting senous. 
news analysis through sum 

luminaries as David Frost and 

Angela Rippon, TV-am was 
forced by poor audiences to 
revert to a more popular 
format that included Roland 

Rat and rock videos. 

Meanwhile ITV was not 
only edg in g ahead in the 
ratings but also trumping the 
BBC in its traditional area of 


strength, the classic series. 
While ITV screened 
Brideshead Revisited and The 
Jewel in the Crown, the BBC 
countered with a downmmlcet 
American import. The Thom 
Birds. _ 

The Thatcher Government 
let h be known that this, was 
not what it expected of an 
organisation soaring a big 
increase in the licence fee. ! 

To boost its audience foe 
BBC brought in a former ITV 
executive and master of pro-

Grade. His early evening strat- 
egy was three helpings oi

BRITISH TELECOM INTERNATIONAL • WE’LL PUT YOU ON THE RIGHT LINES. 


We are now so accustomed to 
the use of satellites for die 
interchange of TV pro- 
grammes, lor communica- 
tions circuits, and even for 
onage purposes that it is 
easy to nnget that it was only 
in the late*l940s that Arthur 
C C3ark first suggested foe 
feasibility of the “geo- 
stationary*’ satellite, on which 
onr co maunncrti ons A ygyl- 
daik realized that at one 
particular height (more tfom 
22,000 miles above foe earth’s 
surface) the speed of rotation 
necessary to keep the 
in ortrit matched foe un gnipr 
rotation of foe earth, so that, 
from the point of view of an 
observer on foe ground, the 
satellite would appear to be 
stationary in the sky. 

His proposal was for three 
such satellites to be placed in 
position equidistant about foe 
equator, thus covering foe 
whole of the earth’s circum- 
ference. By establishing suit- 
able transmitters and 
receivers on the satellites and 
on foe groond, means would 
exist for wodd-wtde commu- 
nications. 



It is these satellites we refer 
to when we discuss satellite' 
technology in a television 
context 


Now of course we have been 
using satellites for the inter- 
changeofTV pr o gram mes for 
several years. We have bo- 
come accustomed to watching 
a Test Match in Australia live, 
or a news broadcast from foe 
US. 


' It .is possible even to buy 
over the counter from your 
local high-street shop a receiv- 
ing dish »nd foe necessary 
“made box" to receive at 
home many of the European 
programmes which are avaiP 
able, for under £2,000. So you 

may well aslr: “What’s new”? 

What’s new is the concept of 


direct satellite broadcasting 
(DBS), a system for transmit- 
ting program mes direct to foe. 
home with a minimum of 
special equipment. Existing 
satellites are intended for use 
with professional equipment 
and elaborate earth stations, 
with sensitive (and therefore 
big) reoeiving dishes. 

Since they provide many 
services, such as data commu- 
nications, telephone folks and 
so on as weu as television, 
weight and power consump- 
tion are important consid- 
erations, so that the 
transmitters are lowfiower. 

The programmes transmit- 
ted are intended primarily tor 
reception by cable networks 
for onward delivery to the 
viewer, and hence, many of 


them are "scrambled” to pre- 
vent their access . by un- 
authorized viewers. 

The DBS on the othe r han d 
will employ higher-powered 
transmitters, so that a simple 
Hfeh, i Sin. or less in diameter, 
will suffice for perfect recep- 
tion. 

AS countries have been 
allocated a certain number of 
channels, and in the UK the 
IBA has been given the 
responsibility of choosing the 
contractor who win provide

have been made to the IBA, 
and it is hoped that an 
announcement can be made

Peter Granet 


Putting Britain in the DBS picture 


Britain has advanced plans for 
DBS broadcasting and so has 
Ranee, West Germany, Ire- 
land and Luxembourg. 


From the leerin g point 
of view, probably the most 
exciting aspect of DBS is that 
foe opportunity has been 
taken of changing the 
“coding" system of colour 
transmissions. In all cn rrp n t 
systems, such as PAL, NTSC 
flriri SECAM, the black-and- 
white picture (luminance) and 
the colouring information 
(chrominance) signals are 
transmitted simultaneously. 


This gives rise to various 
forms of distortion, in particu- 


lar a patterning on the screes, 
and cross-colour, where cer- 
tain finely pariented black and 
white pictures “fool" the re- 


bit mere

designers chose a picture com- 
posed of 405 horizontal lines, 
and 25 frames a second, 
knowing that it was not at foe 
time possible totake frill 
advantage of the system's 
potential. The Japanese have 
proposed a standard of 1,125 
horizontal lines, at a field rate 
of 60 a second (30 frames, 


each consisting of two fields 
interlaced) and a picture as- 
pect ratio of 1 6 horizontal to 9 
vertical, or very nearly the 
Cinemascope aspect ratio of 
2:1. The picture is snberb. But 
the capital cost of roeqnip-

However the Interim Work- 
ing Party (IWP) cm Standards 
was instructed al tire plenary 
meeting of the International 
Consultative Committee for 
Radio in Dubrovnik this year 


ping all the world’s TV star to agree and submit within the 


tions will be immense. 

Proponents of the Japanese 
system for general distribution 
suggest that there would be 
enough people prepared to pay 
for the great improvement to 
.make it a viable proposition, 
but this would probably result 
in delaying the adoption of a 
worldwide standard. This has 


been called foe “revolutionary 
approach”; ie, n,, ‘ 


present systems and 
newones.

Big reservations 
about the system 


Mort experts, particularly in 
Europe, seem to favour the 
“evolutionary approach”, de- 
fining first a high-definition 
standard for foe origination of 
programmes, which can be 
“down-converted” to national 
transmission standards, 
allowing each administration 
to take one or two steps 
towards HDTV at a time, 
leading eventually to a univer- 
sal high definition Systran. 

Strong reservations have 
been expressed by those coun- 
tries (75 per cent of the world) 
whose systems are based on a 
50-field (25-frame) a second 
rate a bout the suitability of tlte 
proposed Japanese system 
a 6tf fi 


next two years a standard for 
programme origination which 
would overcome these 
objections. 

It is in foe field of down- 
conversion to local trans- 
mission that tiie MAC system 
is seen as making its greatest 
contribution. For example, by 
sacrificing some of foe stereo 
soqnd signals available it is 
possible to transmit addi- 
tional picture information, in 
particular information about 
the left and right hand sides of 
a “wide screen” picture. 

A “nonnaP MAC reoeiver 
would disregard this addi- 
tional information, and dis- 
play only the standard format 
4:3 aspect ratio picture. 

Using modem techniques of 
storage and interpolation the 
more advanced receivers 
could synthesize additional 
lines, increase the frame dis- 
play rate, minimize “flicker” 
and display a wide-screen 
picture, all without rendering 
obsolete existing MAC receiv- 
ers. 


based on a 60 field a second 
rate for down- c onvers i on to 


Thus, people prepared to 
pay for an enhanced picture 
could obtain it without 
penalizing thorewifo different 
priorities. 

The first priority is to 
decide the world-wide origina- 
tion standard, and to re-equip 
studios for this. pQ 


Of all the “new 

industries foe Government 
professed to be so keen to 
promote, cable TVhas had by 
far foe most chequered his- 
tory. ■ • 

The Home Office fasaed 11 
pBot licences in November 
1983, each covering an area of 
shout 100,009 homes, but to 
date only seven are operating. 

Despite this slow start a

Why, foes, has -cable been 
so slow to take off in the UK, 
compared to foe United States 
(where the pene trat ion rate is 
over 50 per cent) and parts of 
Europe snch as Betehun (more 
than 80 per cent), and foe 
Netherlands (70 per cent).? 

First of all, hi die US, foe 
cable systems tend to be 
cheap, consisting of wires 


The cable

J in the ground as in foe 
UK. And they are designed to 
deliver entertainment at a low 
cost rather than being a 


dram — less than 5 per cent of 
cable systems in the US are 
two-way. 

In foe Netherlands and 
Belgium the e xte n si v e cabling 
work was done to the 1960s to 
link fames to a radio network 
System, and the capabilities of 
these systems are also ex- 
tremely Baited. By contrast, 
the talk in the UK dming the 
early stages of cable was all 
about new technology and foe 
two-way potential of cable, 
with**inter-active sendees” 
such as telephone, home bank- 
ing, home sbopppina, video 
~ rearing and database ac- 
cess. 

But the cable services tint , 
are on offer consist of 
entertainment: movies,

quickly to what it saw as a

- Its attitude seems to be that 
it is ap to the private sector to 
torn the dream into reality, bat 
the ris k-averse CStj will nob 
invest in cable unless its 
sabcesscan be demonstrated. 

That success win not hap- 
pen without extensive invest- 
ment, and adequate , rates of 
return wfll be generated only 
when cable systems are faffirt -

were originally intended:

July 1 stood at 1&4 per cent

qualifications. Consequently, some Brit- 
is h compa nies are sceptical of the vahxe 
of postgraduate education, preferring to 
train graduates “in house”, while omens 
are enthusiastic. '

ful business school graduates several

The Manchester -Business School 
states: “Over ninety per cent of graduates

working at senior management or board 
level, with salaries commensurate with 
these responsibilities rising to over 
£50,000 a year, and Haimc that the 
market value of an MBA (Master’s in 
Business Administration) even for 
graduates who took tire coarse immedi- 
ately after a first degree is ES-'LOOO above 
the salary for a first degree only. 

What are business courses? They are

complement to rL Whatever their exact 
title, they are highly p arti c ip ative, stress- 
ing project and seminar work. They are 
academic and the work load is very high. 

A bewildering variety of 
courses to choose from 

They are intended to train managers to 
do their jobs more effectrvdy: to hdp 
them acquire slnlls in problem solving 
and communicating, the 'ability to cope 
under pressure and confidence in- mak- 
ing decisions. Business School staff 
normally engage in applied research or 
consultancy and are therefore able to 
apply theoretical- knowledge to solving 
problems in industry and commerce. 

Students me of a high calibre, having 
been subjected to searching mteviews, 
following a paper sift based onapplica- 
tion forms containing these or similar 
questions: 

“Give a candid commentary on -your

“What are your personal assets-mam 
deficiencies?” ' _ ' 

“List three situations you have found 
interesting or exciting. Describe your 
reactions and the influence they have 
had on your attitudes.” * ; - 

There is a bewildering. variety of 
courses on offer, in university business 
schools, polytechnics and colleges: on 
“taught" courses or higher degrees by 
research, and in general business admin- 
istration or in specialised areas such as 
financial studies, operational research, 
personnel manag e men t, m arke t in g. ^ 
The MBA, the prestigious qoa nfica- 
tion which is highly regarded inter- 
nationally, is available as a one or two

similar ponpd to the masters’ courses, 
usually minus the dissertation. 

Why. take a Diploma? Firstly, the 
competition for places is less severe. The 
qualification is “not quite so 
marketable”, says one business school 
with remarkable honesty. 

This does not mean that they are 
worthless — rather that they arc not so 
well known, internationally, as the. MBA. 
It could pay students conside ri ng 
masters* or diploma courses to contact 
institutions and compare the types of 
employment entered by holders of 
MBAs, Diplomas in Business Ad min ?- 
istration and the Diploma in Manage* 
ment Studies (DMS). 

The latter is the most pcqmlar post- 
graduate course in the country, most 
frequently studied on a part time basis, 
aithn ngh there are foil time courses, and 
these are .particularly useful to arts 
graduates looking for a “conversion 
course.” 

These too, are intended to provide a 
general management qualification, but 
they are validated by the Council for 
National Academic Awards, and there- 
fore offered in the public sector. Courses 
are well spread geographically, so that 
every prospective student should find 
one within easy access. 

.- Funding for business courses can be a 
problem; Fees in 1986-87 were £1,680 a 
year. with most schools estimating that a 
• farther £3,000-£3^00 would be needed 
to cover living expenses, as the intenaxye 
nature of the courses prevents part tune 
employment It is becomiag harder 
every year to fold the necessa ry finance.

Sarrey Heath Borough Coun- 
cil v Secretary of State for die 
Environment and Another 
Before Mr Justice Kennedy 
| [Judgmem October 30} 

A planning inspector 
determining an appeal against a 
refusal of planning permission 
misdirected himself in having 
regard only to the . national and 
not also to the local need to 
promote economic activity, 
when be rejected local develop- 
ment proposals limiting job 
opportunities, in favour of a 
government circular encourag- 
ing the promotion of new 
development and the provision 
ofiobs. 

Mr Justice Kennedy accord- 
ingly granted Surrey Heath Bor- 
ough Council's application 
under section 245 of the Town 
and Country Planning Act 1971 
to quash the decision of an 
ins p ect or appointed by the Sec- 
retary of State for the Environ- 
ment, who by letter 
November 28, 1985, allowed 
Elhott Developments Ltd’s ap- 
peal against the council's refusal 
of their application for pbmritng 
permission for a three-storey 
office building at 341-347 
London Road, Camberiey.

council; Mr Dnncan Ousefey for

presumptionin favour of allow- 
ing application? for develop- 
ment, having re gar d to all 
material considerations, unless 
that development would cause 
demonstrable ha rm to fotercsts 
of acknowledged importance." - 
In his decision letter, the 
inspector concluded that the 
proposed development would 
be contrary to local policy and 
reminded hmigfif that the 
development plan was only one 
of the material considerations to 
be taken into account m

The inspector concluded that 
the need to bring about eco- 
nomic regeneration by the cre- 
ation of jw opp ortun ities, such 
as those which might become 
available in the proposed office 
building, was such a ' vitally 
important matter that it out- 
weighed all the policy and other 
objections of die council. 

There was no evidence before 
the inspector to suggest t h a t 
there was or was Ekdy to be a 
high rate of unemployment in 
the area, nor was there any other 

evidence of economic activity or 
stagnation. - -

was a need to promote eco-

MR JUSTICE KENNEDY 
said that one of the council's 
complaints was that the inspec- 
tor was so anxious to comply 
with the job creation memiy of 
the Department of the Environ- 
ment Circular 14/85 that he 
paid no proper regard to local 
needs ana local policy as re- 
flected in polity 23 of the Suney 
Structure Ptan, which 
that new speculative employ- 
ment development would not 
normally be allowed, and pro- 
posal SM of the Surrey Heath 
Local Han, which proposed 
th at, ra ve for certain limits 
exceptions, additional employ- 
ment development, indminw 
offices, would not normally be 
permitted wi thin thi» main 
settlement areas of the borough. 

The circular provide* “2. 
New development contributes 
to economic activity and to the 
provision of jobs. It is in the 
national interest to pro m ote *nd 
encourage it The planning sys- 
tem must respond positively 


nomk activity as emphasized by 
the circular which the inspector 
had very much in mind. But it 
was obvious that the need was 
greater in some places, such as 
the North-east because of high 
local unemplo y ment, tten else- 
where. If new jobs were created 
in the wrong places that would 
do little, if anything, to assist. 

So a proper interpret ati on and 
implementation of the circular 
in relation to any individual 
planning application had to 
involve an evaluation of the 
local, as well as the natinnni 
need for economic regeneration. 
The inspector erred in that 

national considerations'^u^ he 
could not have had regard to 
local considerations because be 
had no information as to what 
they woe. 

The inspector thus misinter- 
preted the impact of the circular. 
He had also erred in other 
respects and his decision would 
accordingly be quashed.

Bagshot; Treasury Solicitor; 
Nabacro Nathansou. 


LOR-D, JUSTICE 
GLIDEWELL said- that the 
d e fe nd a nt had , been dunged on 
seven informations arising oat 
of the alleged use of aznedhani- 
cally impelled two-wbeded ve- 
hide m die St Anne's district of 
Bristol. 


The justices found , that the 
defendant was pushing the ve- 
hicle along a road-They did not 
consider whether he had been 
driving h. They found that the 
vehicle had been mmnifa n i i iiy i 
for road use, but that when it 
whs acquired by the defendant it 
had no registration plates, no 
reflectors, hghte or speedometer. 

The defendant had no driving 
beence and there was no certifi- 
cate of insurance in force in 
respec t of the vehicle. . The 
de fe ndant had been riding the 
vehiefe on an area of waste land 
and was moving it from 
site. 


The justices concluded that 
the vehicle was not a m otor 


vehicle within *hf> mamiiM . of 
section 190 of the 1972 Act and 
dial accordingly no offence was 
made out. > 

. It was apparent from section 
190 of the 1972 Act that a 


vehicle might be a motor cycles

exactly the . . of the

- .-the expression ‘intended’ 
does not mean intended by the 
user of the vehicle' either at foe . 
! moment of foe alleged ofience, 
or fortbeJiiture- T 

“I do not think it means the 
intention of the manufacturer or 
the wholesaler or the retailer . . . 

I prefer to make the test whether 

a reasonable person looking at

its users would be a road user."

that test was wfaat would he the

Commissiooer of Inland Rev- 
enue t Challenge Corporation 
Ltd 

In hoMing that an arrange- 
ment entered into by a company 
m New Zealand co n stit u ted lax 
avoidance so that the arranre- 
ment was void under section "^9 
of New Zetland's Income Tax 
Act 1976 as against the 
Commissioner of Inland Rev- 
enue .for income tax pmposes, 
the Judicial Committee of the 
Pnvy Council explained foe 
difference between tax mltiga^ 
turn and tax avoidance. 

Their Lordships (Lord Keith 
of Kinkei, Lord Brightman, 
Lord Tcmpteman and Laid 
Goff of Gucvdey, Lord Oliver 
of Ayimerura diMMgnti^g) on 
October 20 aliowed an appeal by 
foe oommisstoner against the 
judgment of the Court of Appeal 
of New Zealand, which by a 
mty'raity bad diwnicmid the 
commissioner’s appeal from the 
I derision of in the High Court of 
■ New Zealand that in ralrailafing 
the income of Challenge 
Corporation Ltd the commis- 
sioner had incorrectly dis- 
allowed a deduction «A»m»Rrf by 
the company. 

LORD TEMPLEMAN. 
delivering foe judgment of the 
majority, said that there were 
discernible distinctions b etween 
a transaction which was a sham, 
a transaction which effected the 
evasion of tax, a transaction 
which mitigated tax and a 
transaction which avoided tax. 

The Transaction in question 
was not a sham. It was not so 
constructed as to create a fo Hg

Tax evasion also could be 
dis m issed. Evasion occurred 
when the c ommissi oner was not 


informed of all foe facts relevant 
to an assess m ent of tax. Inno- 
cent evasion mq$hl lead to a 
reassessment, fraudulent eva- 
sion might lead to a criminal 
prosecution as wed as reassess- 
ment. 

A taxpayer had always been 
fine to mitigawe his liability to 
tax. Income tax was mitipiwf 
by > taxpayer who reduced his 
income or menrred expenditure 
in circumstances wtrich reduced 
his assessable incomeor entitled 
him to reduction in his tax 
liability. 

Thus when a taxpayer exe- 
cuted a covenant md mwdf a 
payment under the covenant he 
reduced his income. If the 
covenant exceeded six years and 

satisfied certain other con- 
ditions the reduction in income 
reduced the assessable income 
of the taxpayer. The tax advun- 
tage resulted from the payment 
under tte cov enan t. 

When a taxpayer mad e a 
settlement, he deprived himself 
of the capital which was a source 
of income and thereby reduced 
his income. If the settlement 
was irrevocable and 
certain other conditions the 
reduction in income reduced the 
assessable income of the tax- 
payer. The tax advantage re- 
sulted from the reduction of 
income. 

Where a taxpayer paid a 
premium on a qualifying insur- 
ance policy, he mooned expen- 
diture. The tax s tet n te *" nt lr d 
the taxpayer to reduction of tax 
babOity. The tax advantage 
resisted from the expenditure 

OP the premium 

A taxpayer might incur ex- 
pense on export business or 
incur capital or other expen- 
diture which by witwi^ 
foe taxpayer to a redaction of 
his tax liability. The tax advan- 


tages resulted from the expen- 
diture for which Parfiament 
granted specific tax relief 


Section 99 of New Zealand’s 
Income Tax Act 1976 <fid not 


imply to tax mitigation, where 
the taxpayer obtained a tax 


advantage by reducing his in- 
come o r by incurring expen- 
diture in rirtaunrtances in which 
the raring statute afforded a 
reduction m tax faabflity. 

Section 99 did apply to tax 
avoidance. Income tax was 
avoid ed an d a tax advantage 
was derived from an arrange- 
ment when the taxpayer reduced 
his liability to tax without 
involving Mm in the loss or 
expenditure which entitled faun 
to that reduction. 


The taxpayer engaged in tax 
avoidance did i 


not reduce his 
income or suffer a loss or incur 
expenditure but nevertheless 
obtained a reduction in ■ his 


liability to tax as if he had. 

In an arrangement of tax 
avoidance the financial position 
of the taxpayer, was nnaflftyw xi 
(save for the costs of devising 
and implementing the arrange- 
ment) and by foe arrangement 
the taxpayer sought to obtain a 
tax advamagewithour suffering 
that reduction in income, loss or 
expenditure which other tax- 
payers suffered and which Par- 
liament intended to be suffered, 
by any taxpayer quafifVing for a 
reduction m his liability to tax . 

. ff a taxpayer asserted a reduc- 
tion massessabfe income, or if a 

taxpayer sought tax refief with- 
oat suffering foe expenditure 
which qualified for such relief 
then tax avoidance was in- 
volved and the commissioner 
was entitled and bound, by 
section 99 to adjust the assess- . 
able income of the taxpayer so 
a$ to eliminate tire tax advan- 
tage sought to be obtained.

klence outside me junsaicuon 
against a plaintiff who was 
resident in another part of the 
United Kingdom. 

His Lordship sx> held in 
proceedings brought by the 
plaintiff D. S. Q. Property Go 
Ltd against Lotus Cars Ltd and 
two individual defendants. The 
plaintiffs claim was for dam- 
ages for an alleged conspiracy to 
defraud. The first and third 
defendants applied to strike out 
on the ground that the statement 
of claim disclosed no cause of 
action. 


Despite that, Mr Lloyd con- 
tended that there was either no 
jurisdiction to make such an 
order where the plaintiff al- 
though resident outside England 
and Wales, was resident in 
another part of tire United 
Kingdom, or that if such juris- 
diction, in theory, existed, it was 
nevertheless contrary to the 
settled practice of tire court to 
exercise it.

His Lordship would not be

sion unless forced by principle 
or authority to do so. His

Mr Nicholas Strauss, QC 
Mr Mark Hangood for the first

Sumner for the thud defendant; 
Mr Timothy Lloyd, QC. for the

Mr Justice Bin gham in Wil- 
son Vehicle Distributions Ltd v 
The Colt Car Co Lid ([19841 
BCLC 93), a case indistinguish- 
able on its facts, had refused 
such an order, holding that he 
was bound by the dedrion of tire 
Divisional Court in Raeburn v 
Andrews, which laid down that 
security for costs should no 
toager be ordered on the ground 
of residence outside tire jurisdk> 
tion against a plaintiff who was

Hi* Lordship proceeded to 
examine the law - as it hsut 
developed since before 1786, 
referring to Pray v Edie ((1785) 
Dura & E 267), Crozat v 
Broaden (T1894] 2 QB 30) and 
Wakelyv Triumph Cyds Co Ltd 
ff 1924] I KB 214) and ebatwg Ae 
brought about by section 69 of 
the Joint Stock Act 1856 and 
subequent legislation relating to 
companies; and the Judgments 
Extension Act 1868. 

Mr Strauss submitted that 
Raeburn v Andrews was not a 
case in which the plaintiff was 
impecunious, and that it was 
accordingly no authority where 
the plaintiff was not only res- 
ident in Northern Ireland ’but 
was -also without sufficient 
means to jay foe defendant’s 
costs. 


necessary.. 

Tire plaintiff was an kdivid- 
ual resident within tire United 
‘Kingdom, and amenable to tire 
process of tire En pfo* courts. 
Tfcs fact that he happened to be 

re sident in Scotland was : trreleK 
vant, .and there was no reason to. 
discriminate against him by 
treati ng . him any. - differently 
from a defendant sunfiariy 
plxoed bm resident in England. 

That, however, was Simply, 
not the presort cas e . The pre sen t 
plaintiff was not an individual, 
but an insolvent company with 
a Emited liability. If it were 
“corporated and -resident in 
England , security would be or- 
dered^ against it under section 
726of the Companies Act 1981; 

This was not a case in which 
tbe defendants .not u»Hng to 
discriminate against a resident 
in Northern Ireland, blit where - 
the plaintiff was seeking to be 
treated differently and more 
advantageously man a plaintiff 
similarly placed in En gland 


.rcridenr in England. That was 
still the law but Raeburn v 
Andrews, had, and could have, 
no application to .a plaintiff 
which was an- insblvent com- 
pany with limited liabilit 

. . There, too, in l.874; hsi 
status was irrelevant, 

consequences were ^ 

wherever incorporated and res- 
ident within tire United King- 
dom, security for costs could i « 
ordered against- ft. That re- 
maimed the law until 1929; but it. 
had not been the law since. 

Nothing, however, in Rae- 
bum v Andrews req u ire d ' an 
mserfyent company with, limited 
hamhty mcorponued and res- 
ident in Northern Ireland to be 
rested Bee . an . impecunious

far as his Lordship , knew, had 
not be en - raised before the 
present case, trwas not raised or 
considered * “ 


. MR JUSTICE JUPP said that 
foe plaintiff only ever M one 
cause of action m respect of all 
foe injuries caused by the ao- 
If the seftiement of the 
. <5aKh id inspect dt tbe 
iryuries bad constituted 
■n areorri and satisfaction. It 
had destroyed the whole of that 
arose of action, just as a 
judg ment would have done, and 
constituted a bar to any later 
action founded on foe same 
cause of action; even though for 
farfocT damages: see Sabnond 
and Heuston on Torts, 18tb/ 
edition (1981) p554_ 

. It was dear from the authori- 
ties that whether a settlement 
had constituted an accord m\ d 
satisfac ti on , rather, than a mere 
Agreement to pay and receive 
da m ages accrued at that rime, 
,*ras a question affect. 

• ffis Lordship was satisfied on 
foe evidence tto tire settlement 
of tire facial injury c fayjm had 
constituted an accord and 
s at isfaction and that no-cause of 
action. survived. 

The second issue which he 
hsti to determine, was whether 
' the plaintiffs date of knowledge 
under section 14 of the 1980 Act 
' had.been more than three years 
before the issue of foe writ His 
- Lpfdstup was quite satisfied ths^ 
the writ had been issued within 
three years of the plaintiff s date ( 
of knowfedge in respect of the ■ 
i njury for which damages. were 
claimed in the action. 

A difficulty arose from foe 
fee* t hat white section II re- 
ferred to actions “in respect of 
p^nal i^uries’*, section 
14(1), which defined “date of 
xnow tedge“ foe the purposes of 
“ctiMi 1 1, referred to foe date 
on which tbe .plaintiff first had 
knowledge of the fact that “the 
injury in question” was signjfi- 
ram and attributable to the 
de fenda n t' s act or omission. 

Lordship’s judgment, 
tirechange from phrraltorinl 
Sufarwas i not accidental and had 
a meaning. It comemplaied 
cases where .more than one 
injury, arose from one act or 
omission, one or more of which 
did not become apparentTor 
appear significant, until some 
tune after the accident.

Ireland had initially aflerad

matches, building np to the 
international , in which case 
the Irish Rugby Football

Romania's prior inter-

the costs .became the same as

En^snd rounded off a highly 
successful fourday training trip 
to Portugal with an easy victofY 
over the host t»untty in the 
Algarve fishing port of Othao on 
Saturday. As. a result, a tour- 
nament involving E ighnvd , Por-

arranged for next ApriL . 

This is considered ideal final 
preparation for England's bufld

sssr&rsg; 



Sa tacwMi we one of those 
sides who do not look much 00 
paper .but are always hard to 
twit esoedaUv at' Southaate: 
Wasps would not have fended 
their chances as seven men were 
m Portugal whh England and as 
the weatoer was as wedy Uack 
as a witch's cauldron,. . . 

In the conditions ai surpris- 
ingly large crowd could easily 
have been treated to a prolonged 
rendering. of ■ the 
hippopotamus's chorus. But 
there were three fine tries and 
several dunce moments to 

savour. 

.Wasps were not -afraid to he 
adventurous and use some diy- 
weatber tactics, espeaallyin the 
second half when they had the 
ete uvents jn their favour. They 
were urged on by their, captain, 
Pegter, who showed a rare turn 
of foot for w fianker. They also 
found a yoimg hero in 
: RufoardsOn, ' their thirdchoice 
-foabaefc, who wra iock sobd in 
^fefenoe and scored probably the 
best and certainly the most 
endtitty.- ' ,l; 

But for the first 40 minutes 
Wares ' had 7 to withstand a 
bombardment caused as much 
by the camfitions as-by their 
opponents. Try as they might, 
Saracens felled to jam toe larder 
door open and they o nly .on ce 
canto near a by when Lawrence 
Smith was ' denied by frantic 
defence.' 

Two penaltiesby Smith were 
ofiset 1^ one from Richardson 
in Wasps’ only sortie into foeir 
enfoouents’ baff. towards half 
trmt An exceBort tty three 
minuiieainio toe second half was 
exactly' what Wasps wanted, 
although it derided toe fete of 
toe match. 'Ellison had put 
Richardson away for an un- 
converted, try and, wth the 
dements at' torir command, 
won. 

A penalty by 
followed by a splendid try from 
Simon Smith, after. Pegter had 
done afl toe work with a 40-yaitl 
run and a neatly timed inside 
pass to toe former England 
winger. A brave penalty the 
Saracens' Smith - was rudely 
answered first by. Richardson’s 
boot and then by Smon Smith. 
Tlus.was a typical effort in the 
comer and after an original 
fonistby Pdlow and Pegjer. 

Wasps MQ be eager to get at 
Bath next Saturday and they 
have some happy selection 
problems to solve before then. 


Nobody seemed to have seen 
toe inodes t. No one could 
recollect anything. It was all 
strangely anonymous. But Gar- 
eth Sun wMMMfc, one of the best 
young referees in Wales, was 
dear m the ce r ta in ty with which 
be instructed Adrian Owen, 
Bridgend's captain, off the field 
in toe 22nd minute of the 
second half of tins match. 

It would repear that he had 
kicked one of toe Bristol players 
bat nobody seemed to know 
much about it On this occasion 
all toe sympathy went to toe 
player sent off . 

It was completely out of 
character with the game up to 
foat m ome n t, although the last 
quarter of an hour, in the wake 
of the incident, turned un- 
pleasant. The home team, lead- 
mg 19-7 at that time, went on to 
are by two goals, a tty and three -. 


penalties to two tries and a 
penalty. 

With Hos kicking a penalty 
frran an infringement ai the first 
ruck, Bristolhad gut off early in 
torir attempt to up toe 
good score they needed by the 
interval. Bridgend, instead of 
playing a waiting game until toe 
changeover, responded quickly 
with exerting running of their 
own. They polished off their 

«TtaplnT>g with tfime scoring and 

by the end of the halfhad scored 
three good tries. 

Webbe got the first when 
Grabham created the balf break 
for Apsee to send the winner 
cantenng in at his ease. Lynn 
mnrff the running on the ten to 
set up toe ruck from which 
Gareth Williams scored the 
second. Another combined at- 
tack to an end when 

Webbe set three on the right, 
chipped ahead, Hogg was held 
and John Morgan scooped up 
the ball to GrifSths, the prop, to 
get the try. GoodfeHow con- 
vened two of these: 

Not that it was as one-sided as 
all this might yigg f g but the 
home team were better at taking 


their chances. The visitors did 
gel a good try just before half- 
time when Woodman, on toe 
left wing, scored after his for- 
wards had won possesaomhe 
right 

With toe home team extend- 
ing this lead with a penalty by 
GoodfeQow, the second half was 
proving as active as the first But 
the sending off of Owen affected 
die general good temper of his 
icam. Can - scored a splendid try 
for Bristol in the corner by 
beating four defenders on toe 
way. After that foe match, so 
glowing in its early enterprise, 
dragged to a dose, with 
GoodfeQow managing to kick 
two further penal ues.

Maesteg— — ; —

Nottingham preserved their 
. unbeaten record without too 
much trouble at Beestou on 
Saturday, scoring a goal and two 
penalty goals against Maesteg. 
Next Saturday they take that 
record — IB wins and a draw — 
to Leicester for what may be 
their hardest match so fer. 

In the past Leicester and 
Nottingham have usually met in 
midweek, to such has b een th e 
growth xrf interest in the fixture 
that the change 10 Saturday 
became inevitable. 

Not tingha m were without six 
first-choice players against 
Maesteg but their organization, 
control and defence were sound 
enough to disguise the fed. 

scored all their points in 
the first baff when they had a 
following wind, and though they 
lost the second half territorially, 
they won it tactically. 

‘ Tie baric 1 row of Koial, 
Thomtey and. Hughes tariffed 
Maesteg into anonymity when 
the ball was in the open. 
Thomtey had an exceptional all- 
round game. Only Mark Jones, 
the Maesteg stand-off was able 


-to break toe first lineef defence, 
and be was let down by the 
shaky handing of those beyond 
him. Maesteg's up-apd-tznders 
also feited, dropping like plums 
into the safe bands of Byrom. 

Hodgkiason kicked two pen- 
alties rad in between converted 
a smart tty by NorthartL This 
was toe indirect result of a 
mused penalty by Hodgkinsoo. 
Maesteg were caught in foeir 22 
and conceded a scrum from 
which Morgan, acting as a 
decov. ran to the open side 
without the ball while Northard 
went through to score on the 
blind. 

In both halves Maesteg bad 
toe pm-in at scrums on the 
Nottingham fine but were kept 
at bay. Once, Roberts lost the 
ball as he aimed for toe touch- 
down. Mike Thomas missed an 
easy penalty. One way and 
another, you feh that Maesteg 
could have run around until 
midnight without scoring.

Liverpool 

again 

besieged 

When the beleaguered Liver- 
pool (founded in 1857) were 
mulling over the options, oae 
appeared to be a merger with 
Waterloo (Michael Stevenson 
writes). This notion was dis- 
carded and the lively infant, 
Liverpool St Helens, saw toe 
tight of day. 

On Saturday LSH visited 
Blundetisands for a merit table 
B march, holding Waterloo for 
much of the game but losing 18- 
6 by a goal a dropped goal rad 
three penalties to two penalties, 
Waterloo’s try coming dose to 
the final whistie. 

Gosforth lost a g a in (12-21) to 
Richmond in a B table matrix. 
There was not much flow to the 
game, the boot bring more 
prominent than the hand. 
Gosfonh’s points came from 
four penalties by Johnson and 
Brinkley kicked five for Rich- 
mond as well as converting a try 
byHempd. 

Birmingham visited Wake- 
field for a C Table match and 
were overwhelmed 42-0, the 
home ride scoring nine tries. 

Superb tries gave the F® 
Barbarians a deserved right- 
point lead at half-time at 
Stradey Park, after which 
LUaefifs forwards took control 
to win 35-21. Llanrifi were six 
points ahead with a goal in as 
many mitretes.Then Tisoti 
kicked a penalty goal from 40 
yards for the Fijians and 
Moceidreke scored a try from a 
handling movement be started 
from inside his own half 

Raresea, their right wing, 
intercepted a pass on his own 
line and outpaced the opposi- 
tion to run the length of the field 
for the best ny seen at Stradey 
Park for many years. 

Leicester could partly blame 
the wayward boot of their full 
back. Dusty Hare, for going 
down 1 0-1 6 at Cardiff Leicester 
had a 10-3 half-time lead 
through two tries from Redfem 
and Wefls but after the break 

Cardiff firmly encamped in toe 

opposition halt 

Steve Brinkley, the Rxdueond 
stand-off kicked five penalties 
as the Loudon side won their B 
table match 21-12 at Gas&xrth. 
Dave Johnson. Brinkley’s

suggest that Ghnair AcademT 
cab played well in spite of the 
feci that they w»e on the wrong 
-end of a 59-16 scordme with 
Hawick. Die New AmtiesJaud

entertaining afternoon in which 
a large crowd saw Hawick play 
compete rugby. 

Their pack is' made up of 
.powerful and adroit a t hle t es, 
backed by a toreequarter tine of 
no little ddlL The pivot is Gass, 
who is expert at selecting toe 
-right course. 

One of the basic differences 
between the teams was ihe way 
they converted chances into 
points. Gass, the stand-off 
scored 26 points fiom the boot, 
whereas his Opposite number, 
Cameron, missed -five penalties' 
and one conversion. 


By Ian McLanc&an 

Fbr Acdes, there were tries by 
Malcolm and Garry, Cameron 
co n v e rting the firs and kicking 
two penalties. For Hawick, 
Mallm scored four tries and 
McGanghey, NicoL Mitchell

seven conversions and four 
penalties. 

The newty promoted Ayr 
recorded their second win in toe 
McFwan's National League by 
besting Borougfuanfr 18-12 at 
Meggadand. Alan Brown foiled 
with six penalty attempts for the 
visitors; MacGregor recorded 
three penalties and a dropped 
goal for Boroughmuir. 

West of Scotland tan out

into their stride, left flo one in

their international winger, 
scored three tries and Barrett, 
toe stand-off two penalties and 
four con versions. 

Watson tans maintained toeir 
unbeaten league nm with a wdl- 
dcserved 17-3 home win over

kicked two earty penalties for 
Watsonians but it was late in toe 
game before they turned their 
pressure into points with tries by 
Smith and Miliar. 

Kelso had a 17-9 win over

British deficiencies 
exposed in 
WightmanCup 

By Rex Befiamy, Tennis CoRCspondaff 


Marty Rfossen and Owen 
Davidson, both coaches these 
days, did sot have to ask toe 
way to the Albert Hall, 
London, for toe Nabisco- 
sponsored Wiehtman Cup 
contesL Back m 1970 both 
played is toe first tennis 
tournament ever promoted 
there. Riessen beat Ken 
Rosewall in toe singles final 
and shared toe doubles hon- 
ours with Tom Okker. 

This year Riessen took over 
as coach of America's Federa- 
tion Dip and Wightmao Cup 
They won the Federa- 
tion Cup (the world champi- 
onship) at the cost of one 
match. Then Riessen came to 
London with a completely 
different team — all five 
players new to toe Albert Hall 
and three new to the 
Wightman Cup. They won 7- 
0, conceding only tiro sets. 

This was Britain’s heaviest 
defeat at home since 1952. In 
the last eight Wightman Cup 
contests, home and away, they 
have lost 50 matches and won 
only six. As an international 
team contest the event is little 
more than the heart — a weak 
one at that — of a spectacular 
social and sbowbusness occa- 
sion complete with spotlights 
sad champagne, fanfares and 


needs attention. 
The most familiar of the 
proposed remedies is to follow 

by putting 1 toe US onMCourt 
against a European team. That 
would rid the event of its 
questionable status as an ex- 
panded version of a Federa- 
tion Cup tie. But British 
players would not get into die 
European team. What price 
toe Albert Hall then? 


There is a better way. The 
historic angfo-Amerkan band 
could be strengthened, .toe 
event's competitive va lidity 
restored, its distinctive dug- 
acter enhanced^ by restricting 
America’s choice to playcra 
bom in toe 13 original British 
colonies (from Maine to Geor- 
gia) which became a confeder- 
ation of independent states in- 
1783. 

Pending some such change 
in format we have to accept 
toe feet that even American 
“reserves” can give Britain a 
hiding. TheUSTennis Associ- 
ation assemble a team by 
working their way down fire 
ranking fist until they find five 
players who are available, fit, 
and interested. 

The US played remarkably 
welL Even when the essentia! 
job bad been dose (they !ed4- 
0 after two days) they re- 
mained so intensely 
competitive that Britain could 
take only one set from 
Saturday’s remaining three 
matches. That set was won by 
Anne Hobbs - a substitute for 
Sara Gomer, who had a 
injured toe. Mfos Hobbs could 
not have worked harder, nor 
played much better, than die 
did against Bonnie Gadnsek, 
who was leg- weary after five 
strenuous sets of singles and 
doubles cm Friday evening. 

The frustrating feature of 
Britain’s performance — but 
also toe most encouraging, 
because it indicated scope for 
improvement — was that Miss 
Hobbs was the only player to- 
fulfil her potential.

pion 10 the im over the distance

When Mooihouse beard the 
news be said: "That me a n s I 
shall have to start getting down 
to some training. Thai state- 
ment makes his successes, over 
the Americans even more 
praiseworthy and is a tribute to 
his fitness. Beab wiQ be

Norman’s 
nm comes 
to an end 

Sydney (AFP) — Greg Nor- 
man crashed to a 73 in toe final 
round of the Australian PGA 
championship yesterday, losing 
the tournament by two strokes 
to Sydney player, Mike 
Harwood, and ending his hopes 
of beating Byron Nelson's 41- 
year-old record of 11 consec- 
utive wins. 

Harwood, a lanky 27-year- 
old, fired a course-record fourth 
round 64 to notch up his first 

major wm- 

His eigbHmderptf round left 
him on 275, 13 tinder for the 
tournament. Norman, the 
outstanding golfer of toe year, 
chasing his seventh successive 
tournament victory, led by two 
strokes going into the final 
round, but mushed in second 
place on 277, 11 under, with 
fellow- Australian Graham 
Marsh third at 10 under par 278. 

Norman's victory bid was 
stymied by a two-over-par at the 
14th, while Harwoods round 
ended with a briffiaat tardie st 
the par-five 18th.

At Leicester today our 
weighing-room’s senior tnenF- 
ber looks set to pick up 
another consolation prize on 
Asian Cm who is napped io : 
win the first division of the 
WysaB EBF States. • 

The ea$y winner of his 
maiden at Pontefract in May, 
Asian Cup has run most 
creditably isx a couple of 
handicaps feiriy recently. 

The first of those was at 
Ascot where he .looted un- 
lucky not to finish doser than 
fourth: the second, at New- 
market where he beaten on 
merit by Mytens. That, 
though, was no disgrace as 
Mytens showed not longafter- 
wards by running so wdl 
trader his penalty at Ascot ' 
So I fully expect Asian Oip 
to be capable of beating 
Banque Prrvee this afternoon. 

The second division, can go 
to Willie Carson on Fnst KES 
who was the most emphatte 
winner of a similar race at 
Nottingham a week ago. 

For Carson and tramerJohn 





Dunlop First Kiss could easily 


Carson, who is fancied . 
for a Leicester doaMe. 
be the second of a douHe 
initiated by Bronzewing win-

of Lester Piggotfs runner. 
Speculate. 

Qn frafonre Bronze wing's

CRICKET 


all 


Dancing Brave and aU but 
one the res t of the European 
challengers for the world's 
richest day's racing were swept 

tfl «ilb at 


Anita on Saturday by as bard- 
trained and professional a 
bunch of equine athletes as 
ever assembled. 

For the first time for days, 
the Waring son had burnt off 
the Los Angeles smog. And 


ground of the San Gabriel 
Mountains, the green tashness 
of the trees and grass made 
Santa Anita on Breeders' Cup 
day look hire an earthly 


It was, alas, not that for the 

B ritish raiding party, whose 
hyped-up dreams of glory 
were torn into almost as many 
fragments as the discarded 
betting tickets in an ony of 
gambling that totalled a 
United States record of over 
$69m wagered on-track. 

Dancing Bravo, Britain's 
hero of the 2,000 Guineas, the 
King George VI and Queen 
Elizabeth Stakes and the Prix 
de PArc de Triomphe, was 
fourth, about seven l^ngrtw; 
behind Manila, the winner of 
the Breeders’ Cup Turf It was 
a disappointment, even if -as 
we learned afterwards - Guy 
Harwood had been on the 
point of withdrawing him 
earlier in the week. 

Fernando Toro adopted the 
expected front-r unning tactics 
on Estrapade, but Charlie 
Whittington's mare never

Guy Harwood, his realistic 
pre-race fears having been 
fully Justified, commented: 
“He did his best, but he wasn’t 
quite up to h. IPs been a long 
season and he couldn't find 
his nsnal kick. We took a 
calcul ate d chance bringing 
him over here and it draft 
come off But he's still a great 
horse. It wasn't the mr to or 
the heat; Fat said that he 
couldn't handle foe bends 
underpressure." 

Racing nowadays is all 
about ' international com- 
petition. So nothing c an dim 
foe brilliance of foe victory of 
Manila, a rugged and deter- 
mined competitor. 

Santos was quite overcome 
with emotion. “I first asked 
the colt at the three -eighths 
pole, but Estrapade started to

hit^jrnfhands’ and I dropped 
my sock. So t crouched a bit

From A Special Correspondent, Adelaide 


An England XI staged their 
third impressive recovery on 
successive days here yesterday 
and through Eroburey*s patience 
and persistence manoeuvred 
South Australia into a position 
from which they could not easily 
escape. 



} jfe 1 



were 261 for eight, a lead ofl 59, 
on a pitch with something in it 
for foe spinners text still favour- 
ing the batsmen. Emburey, who 
bad suffered severely doing a. 
fourtlvwidcet stand of 14S be- 
tween Phillips and Hookes, 
recaptured the initiative against 

untypical Australian batting in 

the evening to end with six for 
101 ofT3S overs. 

Of £6 overs bowled by Eng- 
land in 5hr 20min, Ire and 
Edmonds shared 68, and though 
Edmonds went without a wicket 
his role was scarcely less im- 
portant. Small, nursing a jarred 
kn ee , was off the fidd au day, 
and Botham, though he bowled 

Hildhch in his second over, was 
not njwp fro m lunchtime 
onwards, though there were two 
occasions during the big stand 
when it right for him to 

bowL 

Like his two predecessors, it 
was a day of much excellent and 


fluctuating cricket, marked by 
the hottest weather of foe match 
and tire first appearance at it of 
Sir Donald Bradman, an un- 
obtrusive watcher from the 
executive box alongside the 
South Australian dressing- 
room. He and Bin O’Reflly, bis 
great contemporary in 
Australia’s Test sides of the 
1930s, who at the age of SO is 
commenting with his usual 
asuingeacy for the Sydney 
Morning Herald, did sot meet: 
nor have they done so, accord- 
ing to O’Reilly, for 12 yeare. 

England, adding 25 for the last 
two wickets for a lead of 102, 
made great use of 80 minutes' 
bonding before lunch by reduc- 
ing South Australia to 56 for 
three. Watson was leg-before to 
a full-length ball from Dilley, 
which swung away, and Hfl- 
ditch, conscious of Edmonds 
dose in at siUy-point, was 
bowled off his inside edge from 
a ball that cut back off the pitch. 

Five minutes before the inter- 
val Bishop, looking as dan- 
gerous as m Friday's 67, swept 
Emburey off the middle of the 
bat just behind square leg and 
was caught with casual ease by 
Edmonds inches off the ground. 

For the third day in succes- 


sion, though, the afternoon be- 
longed almost wholly to the 
batsmen, the left-handed Phil- 
lips and Hookes at his most 
fluent adding 1 39 in 33 overs. In 
the first hour, when 92 was 
scored. Edmonds was cut and 
swept too often for a spinner of 
his experience; but Hookes in 
that mood has never been an 
easy man to bowi ux He swept . 
Edmonds twice for six — the 
square boundaries at Adelaide 
arc shorter than ax Lord's — and 
with beautiful fist footwork 
toyed with Emburcy*s cover 


When South Australia were 
1 9S for three at tea the game was 
almost even. But in the second, 
over afterwards, at almost foe 
moment Greg Norman lost his 
chance of winning foe Austra- 
lian PGA - it would have been 
his seventh title running — by 
going two over par ai foe short ; 
14th in Sydney, Phillips clipped . 
a caught-aad-bowJed to 
Emburey and South Australia's 
dismttxration was in progress.

SahhvaL (AFP) — A draw was 
foe inevitable outcome of West 
Indies’ last three-day match, 
against foe Punjab Governor's 
XL here on yesterday. 

Play ended an boor before the 
scheduled dose with foe tourists 
on 1 13 for three wickets is their 
second innings. Opener, Des- 
mond Haynes, was unbeaten on 
50, including eight fours, after 
adding 63 for the third wicket 
with Gus Logie. Earlier, foe 
Governor's XI had avoided foe 
foBow-on, being aD out for 214 
in foe first over after hmch with 
AsifMujtaba, aged 19, still there 
after making a determined 70. 

The left-hander had come to 
tbe crease on Saturday with two 
of bis side back in the pavilion 
with only 31 runs on foe board 
and an uphill tad: in prospect. 
Asif not only saved his team 
but, following his entertaining 
64 against the West Indies in foe 
three-day match in Rawalpindi 
last month, gave another ex- 
cellent display, handling both 
pace and spin with equal ease. 

Resuming at foeir overnight 
score of 128 for seven, foe 
Governor’s XI avoided having 
to bat a second time thanks to 
Asif and the taflendersi He 
added 64 with AH Ahmed, who 
made 28 before being caught off 
Patrick Patterson, and fellow 
fast bowler, Winston Berjjamw, 
then polished off the innings by 
having Mohsin Kamal fcgbe- 
fbre and bowling Nasir Javed.

Australians 32 

GHmmeringsofhope, if only 
feint, for Great Britain appeared 
at KnowsJev Road yesumiay. St 
Helens, although ultimately 
beaten 32-8, gave the Austra- 
lians their hardest game of foe 
tour, and created more try- 
scoring chances than any pre- 
vious opponents. 

The tour team, fielding foe 
balk of their international side, 
were given a gift six-point start 
when Shearer intercepted a 
loose pass from Platt to run 70 
yards for a try. However the 
Saints attacked vigorously and 
were dose to tries on several 
occasions. Holding and Burke 
were held inches out. Ledger 
hesitated from an interception 
with tbe line dear SO yards 
away, and McCormick faded to 
hold on to a difficult, juggling 
interception, again with foe line 


showed their amazing capacity 
to turn defence into attack in the 
twinkling of a sidestep, or sleight 
ofhand, passing from Lewis and 
Sterling. - 

In a closely contested first- 
half the Saints held their own at 
4-6, but two quick tries late in 
the half gave foe tourists a lead 
of 14-6 at halftime. 

After foe interval, tbe Austin- 1 
lians absorbed a terrific amount ; 
of St Helens pressure, before 
Miles showed his outstanding 1 
international quality in the 
centre with a brilliant individual 
run and by. As the Saints tired 
towards the end of the game the 
tourists ran in tries that gave foe 
scoreline a margin that was 
unfair to the home side after 
foeir spirited efforts.

Tbe folly of attempting to ^

undeitined by tbe failure of 
some of foe favourites to sur-

and foe twicc-Scottish cham-

Even David Bryant was pot « 
under severe pressure by tbe 
Rhondda player, John Thomas - t 
before getting his house in order. 

He won 7-2 in foe third set, * 
setting up a fesemating crown-

FOOTBALL 


Graham finds all is far 
from quiet on the 
championship front 





By Clive White 


Chariton Athletic 0 

Arsen aL 2 

Geoife Graham may not 
5 like it, but the Arsenal 
X “seoret” is oul In one of their 

* most revealing performances 
£of the season on Saturday, 
Stbey declared themselves — 
C willingly or unwillingly — as 

* one of the favourites for the 
" championship as they slipped 
!> into second place in the 
t League. 

* Graham's assertion after- 
ip wards that they were “no- 
*• -where near good enough yet" 
r and that, hopefully, they 

would stay somewhere around 
jp the lop six, fell upon deaf ears. 
^ He should have tried telling 
"that to Chariton Athletic's 
dispirited players, thrown 
back into the font for another 
fiery baptism when, after six 
successive victories, they 
could have been excused for 
thinking that the first division 
was not so hot after all. 

Graham certainly did not 
fool an astute Eastender like 
Lennie Lawrence, the un- 
pretentious Charlton man- 
ager. “They are a very well 
oiganized and disciplined 
side, cleverly underplayed by 
George. They compare very 
favourably with the best. 
They’re as good as Forest in 
midfield and a better side than 
Everton. Everton gave us a 
chance. These didn't" 

Arsenal's impressively 
mean and, at the same time, 
lavish performance said as 
- much about their canny, new, 
Scottish manager as them- 
selves. Interestingly, the name 


of Terry Venables cropped up 
afterwards during remarks 
made separately by Lawrence 
and Sansom, the Arsenal left 
back. Lawrence said that he 
had not seen a team win the 
ball back from the opposition 
with such speed since the days 
of Venables’ Queen's Park 
Rangers. And Sansom said 
that there was “a tot of Terry 
Venables in Graham". He 
added that the Arsenal man- 
ager had a similarly clever 
approach to the game and to 
players, which is, perhaps, not 
surprising. Graham worked 
under Venables as a coach at 
Rangers and as a player at 
Crystal Palace before becom- 
ing his own man at Mill wall. 
Coincidentally, it was Ven- 
ables who was first mooted for 
the Highbury job. 

But even Venables’ sides 
never had the same commit- 
ment, albeit a sensible one, to 
attack as this Arsenal one. 
Graham said recently that he 
had taken delight at scotching 
the idea that Arsenal were 
boring. At Seihurst Park they 
swarmed around Chariton 
with such conviction and 
support (Lawrence thought 
that the majority of the 19,000 
crowd were Arsenal support- 
ers) that they must have made 
Chariton wonder who was at 
home — still an ongoing 
problem for the Valiants these 
days. 

After Quinn had glanced a 
shot by Shipley against his 
own crossbar — the nearest 
Chariton came to scoring — 
Arsenal took factual control 
when Adams scored smartly at 


the ter post after a Shirtliff 
deflection had favoured Arse- 
nal. It was not the first time 
that this maturing, talk talent 
at centre back has shown such 
incisiveness around the box. 
But they still need a regular 
interloper in that area, some- 
thing Lawrence and Graham 
did agree upon. 

Hayes, whom Graham tried 
to sell a couple of months ago, 
is doing his best to dissuade 
his manager from this 
thought Even the reluctant 
Arsenal advocate admitted 
that Hayes' sixth goal in six 
games was “a bit of class”. 
Braking away inside his own 
half, Hayes evaded Chariton's 
ill-posilioned ch all e nges be- 
fore racing on to lob Johns 
with the confidence that was 
surprising for someone who 
had been lacking in that 
department. 

Hayes and the other Arsenal 
youngsters. Gravies and 
Quinn, are learning 
“George has put a lot into 
their heads very quickly,” said 
Lawrence, their newest fan 
conceding that he had not 
learnt as much from a game all 
season. With Nicholas, Rix 
and Robson yet to return and 
Arsenal's run in their absence 
now seven games without 
defeat, their challenge has 
been exposed as a substantial 
one. Now they have to Irani to 
live Up tO tile image.

Nottingham Forest 3 

Sheffield Wednesday — 2 


If winning the first division is 
as much about endurance as it is 
skill then Nottingham Forest, 
top of the table since mid- 
September. can take heart from 
their performance on Saturday. 
Faced with a formidable chal- 
lenge from Sheffield Wednes- 
day, they showed their stature in 
a match which eventually 
turned into a classic of passion 
and pace, of punch and counter- 
punch. 

Few teams can match Wed- 
nesday's capacity for putting the 
opposition under the cosh: they 
have a nostril-flared approach to 
attack which makes the sight of 
them driving forward one of the 
most exhilarating in English 
footbalL Unfortunately, there is 
another side to Wednesday, the 
smothering, defensive side 
which is the one preferred unless 
imminent defeat dictates other- 
wise. 

Wednesday gambled on 
smothering their way to a result 
against Forest and the gamble 
did not pay offl Their five-man 
defence (admittedly employed 
for only the second time this 
season) set about breaking up 
the Webb-Clough-Birtles rela- 
tionship which is vital to Forest 
and for the first 20 minutes they 
seemed to be succeeding. 

Then they were undone by a 
brilliant piece of opportunism 
from Webb. Making a late run 
into the penalty area that could 
have been Bryan Robson at bis 
best, he beat three Wednesday 

Cantwell in the 
running for 
former post 

Former manager Noel 
Cantwell looks like e me r gin g as 
one of the favourites for a return 
to Peterborough United follow- 
ingthe departure of John Wile. 

The exit of Wile by “mutual 
consent" after three years and a 
half in charge ends a troubled 
spell in which the fourth di- 
vision dub lost four of its eight 
directors and Wile came undo' 
increasing criticism from 
supporters after poor 
performances. 

Cantwell, the former Man- 
chester United and Republic of 
Ireland defender, steered Peter- 
borough to the fourth division 
title and FA cop success during 
four and a half years as m anag er 
from October 1972. 

• Bolton's 2-1 win at Brentford 
at the weekend ended their 
dreadful run in London at the 
32nd attempt. 

• Newcastle United have made 
a profit of over half a million 
pounds for the second, year m a 
row. and not surprisingly, are 
one of (be few clubs in the black. 

The £590,000 Newcastle re- 
ceived from Spurs for Chris 
Waddle led uj a surplus on 
transfer dealings of £319,050 m 
the financial year which ended 
in May and helped towards a 
total profit of £553,7 1 5. 

• Bristol Rovers are demanding 
£2,000 compensation from the 
Football leagnc following the 
postponement of their home 
game with Darlington who have 
ten players on the sick list. 

Roy Redman. Rovers’ vice 
chairman, said yesterday: “It is 
pathetic. Darlington informed 
the league of their problem on 
Tuesday, and yet the first we 
heard about it was the day 
before the match." 

• The Irish League feces a blank 
Saturday on November 15 — the 
date of tire first anniversary of 
the signing of tire Anglo-Irish 
Agreement. Widespread disrup- 
tion is expected throughout 
Northern Ireland as “Loyalists"

The matches have been re-

cross. It was a goal which could 
well secure him the injured 
Robson’s place in the England 
team to play Yugoslavia next 
week. 

Howard Wilkinson, the 
Wednesday manager, said after- 
wards that he would have settled 
fortrailing 1-0 at halftime. That 
contingency was blown apart 
when the referee awarded a 
penalty — somewhat harshly, 
perhaps — when Shelton col- 
lided with Clough. Pearce 
successfully converted ft to set 
Dp an en thralling second half 
but one in which Wednesday 
always had a little too much to 
do. 

Chapman polled a goal back 
with a well-executed shot from 
the edge of the area but, 
ironically, with Wednesday then 
taking off a defender, Knight, 
fora winger, Chamberlain, For- 
est broke through again, thanks 
to a beautiful pass from Mills 
and the coolness in front of goal 
of Birtles. With 10 minutes left 
Chapman scored a second as the 
hounds of Wednesday resumed 
the hunt; but Forest’s hare had 
gone to ground.

Beaten only once since BHIy 
McNeill's arrival five weeks ago, 

Aston Villa, it seems, can do 
little wrong under their new 
manager. Villa’s climb away 
from the bottom of the first 
division gained momentum 
with Simon Staurod’s two goals 
in eight second half 
seeing off Leicester City. 

No such luck for Manchester 
United, who lost not only Bryan 
Robson but the chance of 
victory against Coventry City 
when Phillips equalized 
Davenport’s first-half goal at 
(BdTrafibrd. Parity was also the 
outcome at Newcastle where 
Oxford United held out for a 
goalless draw and at Southamp- 
ton where CockeriH hlaruM a 
penalty against the cross-bar 
after Clarke had scored his 12th 
goal of tire season, later to be 
cancelled oat by one from Baker 
for Manchester Gty against his 
own club. 

Oldham Athletic and Ports- 
mouth who finished the top 
second division match without 
a goal or an audible swear 
word between them, are now 
being threatened at the top of rogmov 
the division by Leeds United. 1- There 
0 winners over Sh r ew s bury 
Town and Plymouth Argyle. 3-1 
against Crystal Palace. 

The trig West Midlands derby 
in that division brought a 
healthy crowd of 15,029 at The 
Hawthorns and a 3-2 win for 
West B TO m w i cfa Alban over a 
Bir min g ham City side, whose 
second half revival was ignited 
by a goal from Lynex, now on 
loan with his former dub- At the 
bottom, the influx of Derby 
supporters from just along the 
A50 also assured a four figure 
attendance for Stoke City, bat 
there the joy ended for the home 
dub, whose 2-0 defeat was 
completed by a goal from Phfl 
Gee. It was tire sixth goal in 
seven games for the 21-year-old 
signing from non-league Gresiey 
Rovers 15 months ago. The 
injured Lillis win deady bave to 
woik to regain his place. 

Bournemouth, were over- 
whelmed 4-0 in their top of the 
third division tussle at 
Midd lc sbroagh-The Football 
League’s last unbeaten record 
also disappeared when a beaded 
goal in the last minute by tire 
much travelled Oshor W illiams 
for Preston North End brought 
the fust defeat for Exeter City, 
who bad a dub record of 13 
undefeated fourth division 
matches behind them.

Brown conceded 


By Peter RaH 

Poor Norwich. Sandbagged at 
W imble don the previous week, 
they were cut to ribbons by 
LiverpooTs rapier thrusts on 
Saturday, their autumnal dalli- 
ance at the top of the table ended 
as Liverpool announced dm* 
with tire onset of winter, the 
serious busness is beguming. 

“I wouldn’t have thought 
anybody coukl have stopped 
them tire way they played today. 
Even I ef' r — " 
a rueful 
afterwards. 

With Dalglish proclaiming ft 
Liverpool’s best p erfo rm ance in 
his tune at the dub, a staggering 
testimony in itself, there will be 
few to argue. Only Everton, with 
tiieir foil complement, and then 
only possibly, could bave lived 
with Liverpool in that mood. 

Norwich certainty could not. 
They could only watch admir- 
ingly with the rest of us as the 
red shirts brought a carnival 
atmosphere to a bright winter 
afternoon with tire pace, power 
and inventiveness of their flow- 
movements. 

is a kn of nonsense 
talked about En glish football 


valuing hard work to tire detri- 
ment of flair. Liverpool prove 
that the pair co-exist, as Brown 
pointed out. “They have a lot of 
stars,” be reflected. “But they 
work so hard for one. another, 
and they give yon nothing." 

Norwich certainly were never 
allowed to settle for a moment, 
but the memory that will linger 
will be of Liverpool's attacks. 
Prom L a wrenson at right-back, 
levelling in tire opportunity 
offered to launch a series of 
searing raids, through the 
controlling genius of Motby in 
midfield, ably assisted by the 
searching runs of McMahon, 
Whelan, and NicoL to the lethal 
finishing of Walsh and Rush, 
Liverpool's fbotballgiistened. 

Rush's two goals took his total 
to an incredible 19 in as many 
games this season, bat for once; 
be was surpassed by his partner 
Walsh, emerging as the hero of 
the hour with three to mark his 
first home League appearance 
since F eb rua ry, and only his 
fifth in all since tires. 

From his first goal and 
LiverpooTs second, as he re- 
ceived MolbyT long ball, turned 
inside tire bemnsed Qfiver- 
bouse, and placed Jus shot 
beyond Bcnstead, he was k- 


resistibfe. His touch, speecLand 
mtisrveness 'gave Bruce and 
Stunt miserable afternoons as 
he daaned two. more ' himself 
and set np Riisfa for his brace; 

“It is like having" a 
player.” said Dalglish, whose 
preference for Walsh meant that 
he bad had to waft until Nkd 
limped off to make a belated 
500th appearance for the dub. 
By then, .even Gillespie and 
Hansen were coming up to join 
in the fun, and the cnewas cast, 
as indeed ft had been from the 
moment N5col best Norwich's 
naive offside trap to collect 
Molby’s pass . and beat tire 
defenceless Benstead. 

Then and later^. Norwich did 
not help themselves. Their two 
goals in the dc 
scored by Phelan and 
after DnnkeU hud made' de- 
cisive contributions, at least 
enabled them to leave Anfidd 
with a modicum of seffrespeeft 
however, and few. teams wm be I 
able to do more when Liverpool 
are in full stride.

ie supporters call time 


By Simon Jowes 


Ctmteon „ . r

Watford 

n 



The dock at Stamford Bridge 
now stops about 10 minutes 
from time. According to a dub 
representa tive , this is so tire 
pressure mi tire struggling home 
side is not increased by knowing 
exactly how few minutes 
remain. 

Only in one sense, however, 
does tone stand still for Cbdsea. 
Every game is tire same: an 
eternal recurrence of nervous- 
ness. The pattern of tins one was 
no different. Watford, driven on 
by wind and rain, should have 
established an ovewfadnring 
advantage by halftime, but tack 
of penetration down the flanks 
— a" unusual foiling for ^ rnH»m 
Taylor’s side - meant that the 
Chdsea defence were mercifufly 
left to (teal with a surprisingly 
predictable series of assaults co 
their penalty area. 

Watford hope to co m ple t e the 
Gibson, from 
United, either to- 


day or tomorrow, and he shook! 
improve their attack, providing 
an effective fofl to the bnstiing 
Faico. One consequence of his 
signing would be that Barnes 
could revert to tire, left-wing 
where he is at his most potent. 
Sinnott was certainly unequal to 
the dema n d s of that position on 
Saturday. 

Chelsea, although much un- 
proved after the interval, did 
not team from their adversaries* 
mistakes . McLefland and Sims 
(who was p re ferred to Terry) 
were even more solid than 
McLaughlin and Wicks had 
been when defending tire Sired 
end in the first half 

Nevin, though, was exempt 
from tire general selfdoubt, as 
anxiouato receive the ball as his 
colleagues to get rid of it 
Bt imstrad may not have had 
anything Hke his range of ideas, 
but he, too, worked tirelessly 
and came the dosest-to scoring 
with a. header from McAllister’s, 
cross which tire Watford goal- 
keeper. Co ton, did wefl to t™ - 
over tire crossbar. Such decisive 


thrusts were, however; unusual, 
and C hd se a could accurately 
gauge tire approach of the foial 
whistle by toe number of people 
heading for the .exits. Only the 
Chelsea pensioner presented a 
united, front, their sombre ranks 
u nbl e mi shed by an empty seat. 

Afterwards, the Chelsea man- 
ager, John Hollins, .was as 
as. ever, though 
pointedly brief. The stamp of « 
man is dearest in adversity, and 
it should be said that Hollins has 
handled all tire criticism — and 
abusej-to_which.be has been 

forjjearance. His patience^ 
dieer faiiyM, and deter minat ion 
deserve to be rewarded. Yet 
time is nmnii^outaiid for him, 
cure suspects, no one will stop 
tire dock.

Azzurs gave a 
mild shock to 
the British team 
aboard White 
. Crusader. De- 
spite losing tire 
start Harold Cudmore was 
nearly two mhuaes in front at 
tire top mask. At the fust 
leeward that had dwindled to 
just 13 seconds and from then 
on Cudmore coukl not increase 
tire lead significantly. 

Back on dry land Cudmore 
ascribed the problem to tack, of 
ultra fight-air sails on board. 
“We were a bit caught out by tire 
we a t h er," he said. “We didn't 
have the lightest genoa and 
spinnaker and when a dr opped 
to seven knots they almost 
passed us." 

On tire second beat, into a 
NW breeze that feded fo four 
knots and took almost an hour 
to Cudmore stretched tire 
' i to 22 seconds but on the 
j of the reach the Italians 
chipped h back by two seconds. 
At the bottom mark it was 29 
seconds. Thereafter, probably in 
consequence of tire freshening 
breeze, White Crusader length- 
ened her stride. The third beat 
her an extra narrate and the 
margin was double thaL 
However, the race to be 
savoured and picked over on the 
first day of tire Louis Vuitton 
Qq>, second round robin, was 
Dennis Conner versus Tom 
BbckaHer. The big America’s 
Cup grudge m atc h , set the 
course alight. This time the 
honours went to Bteckadler. in a 
race fan <jf teh una nsh i p 
and subtle reading of tricky 
weather. 

Later, BlackaDer gave tire 
credit to his yacht. “This boat is 
loiolring s tronger arid - stronger" 
be said exuberantly. “It's doing 
things Pve never seen a boat do 
before. It has huge bursts of 
speed, almost like a Flying 
Dutchman. 12-metres don't 
usually do thaL" 

Blackaller confirmed that 
USA has no winged keeL “AO 
the other boats here look like 
copies, of- Australia n to me. 
They don't look revolutionary 
concepts and we are.^ 

This victory for Blackaller 
confirms tire views of those who 
had seen the wildly extrovert 
Californian and his equally up- 
front boat as a growing force and 
one not to be underestimated in. 
the weeks ahead. The previous 
opinion that a fourth place in 
the semi-finals is up for grabs, 
very possibly by Britain, may 
need reassessment. Blackafler 
increasingly looks a nap.

Southern 
division is 
wide open 


Berkshire 1 

Buckinghamshae 1 

By Sydney Frisian 

Buckinghamshire, who last 
won the county championship 
m'1982, were held to a draw by 
Berkshire in .tire southern di- 
vision of tire competition at 
Ma id enhead yesterday. The re- 
sult means each side now has 
three points ' leaving the issue 
Mill open in a group where 
Sussex and Oxfordshire are the 
two remaining sides in 
contention. 

^Bedcsfaire matched tire kiad in 
the ninth minute with a weD- 
taken goal by Boddingtodfiom 
SL , c ? n P' e by Osbourne. 
Bucking h a mshi re responded by 
taking charge and holding play 
m tbor own area for long spells. 

Most Of the B lirtrnyhaitahim 


amcks were kd by &gi Flora 
whose attempt to score in- the 
17th minute called for a body- 
save by Amps. There was a case 
for a penalty stroke, but the 
umpire awarded a short comer 
which Buckinghamshire 
converted. 

More pressure on the Berk- 
shire goal bronght Boc ld n gh a m - 
shire a penalty stroke in the 29th 
minute when Kali Saini’s stick 
was h eld down by Dsvey, lmtiaz 
scoring from the spot to level the 
score. ... 

Shortly before the interval 
"“kaure broke away to force 
two short corners but by the end 
of tire first half Bnckmgham- 
sh ^ e .had squandered six 

Berktiure began the second 
nali with a spirited attack whitdi 
®nded whh Boddfngton putting 
a ahot over the bar, and they 
round no profit from two short 
comers which followed.

• As an examine of domestic . 
rapprochement, this week’s Mavis 
oa Four story about the British- 
bom father and son who stretched 
out their bands across the United 
States, (Channel 4, 4.00), takes the 
biscuit. Don’t let us be over- ' 
cynical about the feet that there 
was a commercial end-product— a 
book- Anything that leads to 
harmony m one family must be 
good for society as a whole, 
particularly when the reconcili- 
ation is aired as sympathetically as 
jt is m front of Mavis. Nicholson, 
one of the best listeners, and 
certainly one of the most consid- 
erate nudgers-along, on the tele- 
vision screen. 

The extraordinary feature of the 
new understanding forged be- 
tween Adam Nicholson and his 
.father — Nigel, son of the famous 
Nicholsons of Sissinghiirst — . is 


650 BraSa^ThnawtmSaffy 


saga, or,

that the hand of-NiciKdson JUs, 
while stretching across the US 
from the west coast to grasp his 
fathers on the east coast, was also 
bowling has parent some nasty 
goOgfies. Son upbraided father for 
ill-treating him in adolescence, 
pairing hjm fed cut-ofE Father 



Tmairnig him fed cut-off Father . 
replied by recalling hours of 
friendliness. Son respond ed by 
-saying he did not remember them. 
And so oi^and so on. The letters 
that winged between the Nichd- 
sons are now preserved in the 
book Two Roads to Dodge City. 
Sensibly, the third Nicholson — 
Mavis; no rdatkni — is less 

concerned with the book than with 
.die new, apparently warm, 
relationship established between 
its highly articulate co-aufoort.

Everton pay for 
the profligacy 
of Upton Park 








m 


- V'-: 




By Stuart Jones 
Football Correspondent 


West Hqm ...........

West Ham United won a 
thunderously exciting game, 
which was covered live on 
television at Upton Park yes- 
terday afternoon, to gain re- 
venge for their fate six months 
ago. On the closing day of last 
season, Everton won the fix- 
ture in their own home at 
Goodison Park and claimed 
the considerable consolation 
prize that is awarded to the 
runners-up in the champion- 
ship. 

Had Howard Kendall been 
able to call on all of his 
internationals since August, 
his side would no doubt be 
lying in a similarly lofty 
position now. As it is. in spite 
of a debilitatingly lengthy list 
of absentees. Everton remain 
contention, five points 


m 


behind the leaders in sixth 
place. 

Yet their capital interests 
show no signs of improving. 
They have visited six London 
dubs so far this season and 
have beaten only one of them, 
Wimbledon. Had they taken 
their opportunities yesterday 
and particularly during a 
pulsating final quarter of an 
hour, their record in the south 
would have become little 
more than an irrelevant 
statistic. 

West Ham took one of 
theirs, a few minutes after the 
interval to ctimb a point and 
two places above their oppo- 
nents. Had they been able to 
complete more of their 


constructive approaches with 
a precise pass, the finale would 
not have been coaled is so 
much potential danger. 

Everton’s profligacy and 
West Ham’s waywardness be- 
came the features of a match 
drat was otherwise overflow- 
ing with quality and which 
unfolded at a speed that was 
typically breathtaking. 
Domestic viewers are accus- 
tomed to seeing such a blur. 
Those on the Continent still 
find it bemusingly quick. 

From first to hist, there was 
scarcely time to pause for 
thought, hardly a moment to 
consider the options. Moves 
whistled through mid-field 
but came to nought during a 
first half that belonged 
increasingly to West Ham. Yet 
Everton might have taken the 
lead after some 20 mintites- 

Heath, released by Sharp’s 
deft flick, was denied by the 
large frame of the sprawling 
Parkes. Cot tee was sub- 
sequently thwarted by his own 
haste. Put through by God- 
dard, he rolled his effort wide 
of Southall appearing for only 
the second time since his 
comeback, and also off the far 
post. 

West Ham did not require 
him to make a genuine save 
for more than half an hour. 
When they did so, through Orr 
from beyond the confines of 
the area, Southall had no need 
to move. The shot was aimed 
directly at his stomach. Their 
next effort, from Dickens, was 
to the destiny of the 

afternoon. 

A. comer from Devonshire 
bounced firmly off the fore- 
head of Dickens and the ball 


threaded its way through a 
narrow gap over Southall's 
fingers and under the bar. The 
combination was notably sim- 
ple. There was no possibility 
of the design breaking down 
through over-elaboration, 
misunderstanding or lack of 
technique. 

The next 42 minutes be- 
came a tale of counter 
punches. Everton were on the 
ropes and Harper felled God- 
dard, an offence for which he 
was booked, as Parris drove 
ferociously at Southall and as 
AspinalTs wildly misdirected 
back pass fell into the path of 
the astounded Cottee. 

So, in turn, were West Ham 
as Heath and Sharp, with soft 
downward headers, put 
AspinaU and Wilkinson in the 
dear. Both chances were 
lofted from no more than a 
few yards over the bar. Steven, 
also freed by Heath, ran 
instantly into a collection of 
claret and blue shirts. 

West Ham ended the day 
with a final flourish, a blister- 
ing drive from Ward being 
parried by Southall. The 
entertainment, watched by 
millions at home, was wit- 
nessed by a meagre crowd of 
19,054, the lowest of the 
season at Upton Park. The 
fund, set up to compensate 
dubs for a fell in attendance 
for televised matches, is al- 
ready in danger of running 
out.

Injury list means a major 
revamp for England squad 


By Stuart Jc 


On the eve or announcing 
the England squad for the 
European Championship 
qualifying tie against Yugo- 
slavia next week, Bobby Rob- 
son has discovered that he 
must again look for a sub- 
stitute for his captain. BTyan 
Robson, who strained a ham- 
string on Saturday, estimates 
that he will be out of action for 
three weeks. 

England's manager, who 
was in Rome over the week- 
end after watching the Yugo- 
slavs last week, also learned 
that another of his party 
members is likely to be miss- 
ing for even longer. Stevens of 
Tottenham Hotspur could be 
ruled out of theaway fixtures 
against Yugoslavia and Tur- 
key next April. 

Stevens, a versatile defend- 
er, has broken and dislocated a 
shoulder, an affliction that is 
all too reminiscent of Bryan 
Robson's recent troubles. 

As he emerged from a 
catalogue of assorted serious 
ailments and setbacks, 
England’s manager prayed 
that his most influential 


player “might now enjoy five 
years free of injury. He 
already had his fair share:’ 


years free of injury. He has 


Bryan Robson's contribu- 
tion for Manchester United 
was to last no more than afew 
more hours and it ended, 
coincidentally, a mere ten 
minutes into his 13th appear- 
ance of the season. 

Bobby Robson, justifiably 
encouraged by foe diffidence 
of the Yugoslavs during their 


More football 
oa page 42 


4-0 victory over the feeble 
Turks, must now redesign his 
line-up. He was planning to 
make only one change from 
the side that beat Northern 
Ireland 3-0 last month, to 
replace the injured Marlin 
with Wright 

England's manager was con- 
vinced that the new partner- 
ship formed between the 
gifted Hoddle and the forceful 
Bryan Robson was his most 
effective combination in the 
centre of midfield. He must 
now decide whether to bring

Half-price 
tickets 
for Scots 


By Hoj^i Taylor 

The thousand Bangers 
supporters who are travelling 
to Oporto today to watch 
tomorrow’s UEFA Cup tie 
with Bosvista have been given 
a half price concession by the 
Portuguese dub. The price of 
admission for the part of file 
ground allocated to the Scots 
has been reduced from £20 to 
£10. They have also been 
warned that hooliganism will 
not be tolerated, drink not 
allowed into the ground and 
banners banned. 

Although Ferguson is 
doubtful for fite tie; in which 
Rangers lead 2-1, Souness, 
their player-manager, said yes- 
terday that he hoped to be fit 
and that McMinn and 
Durrant should have recov- 
ered from injuries received in 
Saturday’s 1-1 draw with 
Celtic ^ t 

Celtic opened the scoring 
when McClair tapped the ball 
into the net after a clever 1-2 
with McGhee; It was easy, loo, 
for McCoist to equalize after 
Fleck had deceived the Celtic 
defence. 

Dundee United, who face 
University Craiova in a 
UEFA Cup tie in Romania on 
Wednesday, trill be without 
Narey but they hope that 
Hegarty and Stiurock will be 
fit. They set out today for a 
difficult assignment, even 


though they hold a 3-0 lead 
fiie first leg, with the

the cap tain. One candidate, 
ironically, might have been 
Stevens. Another is his dub 
colleague MabbutL 

Another Robson, Stewart of 
Arsenal, was considered the 
natur al re placement but he 
has also been troubled by 
injury this season. He was put 
on standby before the Weald 
Cup finals during which the 
senior representative dis- 
located his shoulder which 
was subsequently surgically 
locked into place during the 
summer. 

Mabbutt has filled the role 
of acting as one of Hoddle’s 
bodyguards before, most nota- 
bly several years ago in Greece 
and in Hungary. He is certain 
to be mduded in the squad 
that will be announced by 
Bobby Robson tomorrow and 
may yet be recalled to the side 
that is to meet Yugoslavia at 
Wembley on Wednesday

An mqmry by the Football 
Association is the Bfcdy sequel 
to the volatile London derby 
match at White Hart Lane on 
Saturday id which both 
Tottenham Hotspnr and 
Wimbledon had a man sent 
off. 

Under the FA's disciplinary 
code, both players, Graham 
Roberts of Tottenham and 
Lawrie Sanchez of WhnMe- 
don, face an antematic two- 
match suspension for serious 
foul play, hot Eric Donne, an 
FA spokesman, con firmed 
yesterday: if the referee i 
dkates in his report that it was 
a particularly serious offea 
then we could take farther 
action. 

“There hare been occasions 
when referees hare elaborated 
os a sending-off and players 
hare been charged with bring- 
ing the game into disre pu te.” 
There is no maxmm penalty 
for this offence. 

It always seemed likely tost 
the match — which ended in a 
2-1 win for Wimbledon — 
would be marred by an in- 
cident of a violent nature. It 
was the dtante test, a 
con frontatio n between a team 
as physically committed as 
Wimbledon and a player as 
aggressive as Roberts, both 
albeit, as their respective man- 
agers were quick to remind us 
afterwards, with recent im- 
proved records fa demeanow. 

Something had to snap, and 
so it did, quite dramatically, 
with patofd consqsences, the 
double dismissal of Roberts,

while Sanchez, in addition to 
his suspension, will receive the

Yet to his credit Bassett did 
not dispute the referee's de-

his view continuing that San- 
chez had kicked out at Roberts 
after being fouled and elbowed 
as he tried to rise.

bition of becoming fiie Dum- 
ber one player in the world. 

Having defeated Ivan Lendl 
in Sydney and Stefan Edberg 
m Tokyo before beating off a 
spirited challenge from the 
multi-talented Henri Income 
in the semi-final here cm 
Saturday, Becker is edging 
doser to his goal every week. 
He feels be still ladks the 
consistency required of the 
position, and has spoken elo- 
quently here fins week of the 
responsibility that it carries. 

Today he is backing up 
those thoughts with an act of 
compassion many would fed 
to be above and beyond the 
call of .duty. Two days ago 
Lendl pufled out of a charity 
match in Bologna on behalf of 
fiie fanner Italian Davis Cup 
player, Gianluca RmaMini, 
who was paralysed in a car 
accident 

The. promoter,! Sergio 
Fahnieri, asked Becker to help 
out and offered him, by way of 
compensation, the chance to 
play for his usual ax-figure fee 
against John McEnroe in Har- 
eoce the following night. 


Becker, who needs to deep 
for 48 hours rather than get an 
anotherplane, told Palmieri to 
forget about Florence, but that 

he would play in Bologna for 
nothing. 

The final here at the 
Omnisport Palais, played out 
before another full house of 
nearly. 15,000. followed a 
predictable pattern until 


Becker dropped serve in the

first game 
was then that the West Ger- 
man needed 1 to call up the 
reserves of mental and phys- 
ical stamina. . 


Breaking bade for four-aft, 
Becker eventually won it by 
taking control of the tie-break 
which he won 7-3. Casa l, 
however, was in no way 
disgra&d. A calm, elegant 
player of unhurried dass, he 
is, at the age of 24* a late 
developer but none the worse 
for that . 

Against Tim Mayotte in the 
semifinal, Casal refused to 
panic when he let slip a 6-1, 3- 
1 lead and came badk strongly 
in the. third set with some 
fluently aggressively service
