.“ance, she said, 
was an absolute break with the 
defence policy of every gov- 
fT nmc nt since the war, the 
biggest gain for the Soviet 
Union m 40 years. 

It would expose Britain to 
ine threat of nuclear hia rfcmail 
leave no option but 
surrender. Not only those 
alive today but future genera- 
tions would be prat at risk. 

Mrs Thatcher said: “The 
Labour party of Attlee, of 
Uajislceli, of Wilson is dead 
and no one has more surely 
killed it than the present 
leader." 

Both she and Mr Norman 
Tebbit, the party chai rman , 
gave notice of their election 
tactics by appealing to tra- 
ditional Labour voters. tUs- 
ma>ed by the switch to 
unilateralism, to join the 
Conservatives as the only 
home left for them. 

Sporting a red rose, which 
she announced was the “rose 
of England" belonging to peo- 
ple of all parties, Mrs Thatcher 
was given a ten-minute ova- 
tion by a rapturous audience 
after the party’s most success- 
ful conference in years. 

Her half-hour speech, 
shorter than most she has 
delivered as leader, con- 
centrated on three objectives: 
assailing Labour's defence

There was scarcely a word

alluded to the economy only 
in the most general terms.

Leading article 17 

Frank Johnson 20 

Mis Thatcher said that theirs 
was the conference of a party 
which “was the last govern- 
ment. is the present govern- 
ment and will be the next 

government”,. 

The Prime Minister, who 
will be 61 on Monday, and 
who would become in March 
1988 the longest-serving pre- 
mier tins century, told the 
conference exultantly: “Who 
says we're running out of 
steam? We’re in our prime.” 

She scorned Labour as a 
party tbat put people last and 
wanted- housing munici- 
palized, Industry nationalized,

annized. Their n j jn iwm 
wage policy would cost a 
quarter of a millio n jobs, 
thousands more would be lost 

Anti-drugs 
crusade 
by Mellor 

By Richard Evans 
Political Correspondent 

Tough measures to prevent 
new tend drugs up to 100 
times stronger than heroin 
from r eaching the streets of 
Britain were announced yes- 
terday by Mr David Meflor, 
Minister of State at the Home 
Office. 

The “designer dnigs”, 
which are made from a cock- 
tail of chemicals have swept, 
the west coast of America. - 
The side effects include 
brain damage and the symp- 
toms of Parkinson's disease. 

Mr Mellor, who has master- 
minded the Government cam- ■ 
paiga against drugs, told the 
Conservative Party con- 
ference in Bournemouth he 
would introduce new powers 
in the next session of Par- 
liament to outlaw the drags, 
and trafficking in them will 
carry a maximum penally of 
life imprisonment. 

He also gave a strong hint 
that the Government is set to 
increase the number of cus- 
tom officers engaged in anti- 
drug work at Britain's ports 
and airports. 

Mr Mellor disclosed that 
drag liason officers, who al- 
ready operate in South Amer- 
ica and Pakistan providing 
crucial intelligence to customs 
and police in Britain, are being 
posted soon to two “key 
western European locations .

ference season. Ladbrokes re-

rolled back the frontiers of the 
State and wonkl roll them 
back further. They would 
widen choice and ownership. 

The great Tory reform of 
this century was to enable 
more and more people to own 
property. “Popular capitalism 
is nothing less than a crusade 
to enfranchise the many in the 
economic life of the nation. 
We Conservatives are return- 
ing power to the people. That 
is the way to one nation, one 
people,” she said. 

Emphasizing their record as 
a party which cared, Mrs 
Thatcher said “ft’s because 
we care deeply about the 
health service that we have 
launched the biggest hospital 
building programme in this 
country's history”. Their 
commitment to the NHS was 
second to none: 

On education Mrs Thatcher 
promised: “1 am confident 
that we can really improve the 
quality of education, improve 
ft not just in the. 20 new 
schools but in every school in 
the land." 

The interests of Britain, she 
concluded, “can now only be 
served by a third Conservative 
victory”, quickening the al- 
ready-developing election at- 
mosphere. 

Earlier, Mr Tebbit had said 
that Labour had “fled the 
centre ground, nishing back to 
stale, outdated socialism and 
gnashing the 40-year consen- 
sus. on .defepce^V while the

Complaint on 
BBC coverage 

The Tories stepped up then- 
campaign against alleged BBC 
bias yesterday when they 
disclosed they were lodging a 
formal complaint ova- the 
corporation's television 
coverage of a major news 
event, believed to be the 
aftermath of the American 
bombing raid on Libya 

The move, announced at 
■the Tory conference by Mr 
Norman Tebbit, will provide 
the first big test- for Mr 
Marmaduke Hussey, who be- 
comes 
board of 
month. 

Mr Tebbit said that each 
pejorative phrase and intru- 
sion of political comment in 
the guise of factual news had 
been noted.

Style and smiks: Mr and Mrs Gorbachov arriving at Keflavik airport; Reykjavik, yesterday. 

A new face for Russia 


The first surprise was that 
the ‘ Russians should have 
called such a press conference 
at all: to discuss the domestic 
problems and policies of 
Gorbachov’s Russia. 

Domestic? Surely, the Rus- 
sians would not want to air all 
thatto the world's press— and 
more specifically to the 
freshly-arrived and aggressive 
White House press ooros — oo 
the eve of the big meeting. But 
that was exactly the intention. 


Michael Biayon, who reported 
for The Times from Moscow 
for four years and is now 
working as Washington 
Correspondent, finds a culture 
shock in tire Russians* new 
pnbHc relations offensive be-

As one of the four experts 
brought over from Moscow to 
explain ft ail said: “AH foreign 


policy is a reflection of the 
domestic situation. It is the 
same with us. h is important 
to understanding the reforms 
in the Soviet Union and the 
process of democratization.” 

Democratization? Thai was 
another shock. Here was a 
Soviet official himself suggest- 
ing that Soviet society was not 
already fully democratic, in-

TSB shares drop 

start 



By Richard Thomson, Banking Correspondent ' 
Trustee Savings Bank" "Stock Exchange of the hysteria 


shares opened on the stock 
market yesterday at 100p, a 
massive 100 per cent pre- 
mium above the partly-paid 
offer price of 50p» but fell 
rapidly during the day to dose 
at around 85p. 

Many of the 3.15 billion 
investors are believed to have 
missed out on the initial 
premium because they did not 
receive their allocation letters, 
which were sent out op Thurs- 
day, tty the first post yesterday 
morning, 

Investors cannot sell shares 
without the letter which they 
must first show to their 
stockbroker. 

Meanwhile, -the budding 
societies reported the largest 


net outflow of deposits in their 
history during September, 
mainly caused by about £1.5 
billioQ withdrawn by inves- 
tors applying for TSB shares. 

$ir John Read, TSB chair- 
man, said he was “astonished” 
by the opening price of the 
shares bin added he was 
delighted that the process of 


floating the bank, which' began 
three years ago, was finally 
over. 

Trading in TSB shares was 
restrained, as institutional 
investors showed tittle interest 
while the price remained so 
high. - 

There" was no sign in the 


accompanying the start of 
British Telecom share dealing 
when the trading floor was 
crammed with, stockbrokers 
filling clients' orders. 

Around 70 million TSB 
• shares were traded out of the 
total of 13 billion shares 
issued. 

Trading in TSB option con- 
tracts, however, was hectic. 
During the day 40,000 deals 
were transacted, almost dou- 
ble the previous record set by 
BT options on their first day 
of dealing. 

Meanwhile, the Building 
Societies Association reported 
that a massive £6.8 billion had 
been withdrawn from societies 
during September. 

After accounting for depos- 
its they were left with a net 
outflow of £671 million, the 
largest monthly deficit on 
record. A net outflow has only 
happened twice before, both 
in 1974 during the three day 
week. 

Mr Mark Boleax, secretary- 
general of the JBSA, said the 
figures had been grossly dis- 
torted by the TSB issue. 

But societies were predict- 
ing that October could bring 
record inflows as disappointed 
share applicants, and those 
who sold their shares early, 
put their money back on

Two girls 
found 
murdered 

By Michael McCarthy 

Two schoolgirls whose dis- 
appearance on Thursday led 
to a widescale police hunt, 
were found murdered last 
night near their homes in 
Brighton, East Sussex. 

The bodies of Nicola Fel- 
lows, aged 10, and her friend 
Karen Hadway, aged 9, were 
discovered in a woodland 
park on the Moulsecoomb 
estate. They were last seen 
when they set out to buy chips 
from a local shop. 

They were found in dense 
undergrowth by a teenage 
neighbour who bad joined the 
search by more than 150 police 
officers who used dogs and a 
helicopter in the hunt. 

The two girls, whose fam- 
flies live near each other in the 
estate's Newick Road, were 
close friends. 

Their bodies were found 
fully-clothed and lying to- 
gether in woods 100 yards 
from the main path skirting 
Wild Park, which is across the 
main A27 Brighton - Lewes 
road from the Moulsecoomb 
estate. The cause of their 
deaths was not known. 

After the girls foiled to 
return from the fish and chip 
shop on Thursday evening, 
concern for their safety was 
intensified by reports that a 
man in a dirty blue car had 
been seen outside the shop.

Howe plays down effect on Saudis 


By Nicholas Beeston 

Sir Geoffrey Howe, the 
Foreign Secretary, denial yes- 
terday that the publication of 
an embarrassing confidential 
dispatch about Saudi Arabia 
would harm relations with the 
Saudis or threaten a royal visit 
to the kingdom next month. 

“It is a dispatch written in 
personal terms by the former 
ambassador,” be told BBC 
television, referring to. Sir 
James Craig, the author of the 
message. “Jt does not repre- 
sent a .statement of view or 
opiition by or on behalf of the 
British Government-” 


Sir Geoffrey's remarks 
distancing the Government 
from the opinions in the 
dispatch come in the wake of 
fears that the controversy 
could have jeopardized a visit 
to Saudi Arabia by the Prince 
and the Princess of Wales and 
a multi-million pound Tor- 
nado jet fighter deal - 
Sir Geoffrey went on to 
suggest that the publication of 
such a document made diplo- 
macy difficult. It should never 
have been prinied.- 
His comments came after 
publication of the text in the 
Glasgow Herald on Thursday. 


Excerpts also appeared in The 
Scotsman and The Mirror. 
The New Statesman magazine 
was banned from printing it. 

The Saudi Embassy in 
London said h had had no 
instructions from its Foreign 
Ministry regarding the mailer 
and Ihe British ambassador 
there had not been officially 
approached over the incident. 

A Foreign Office spokes- 
man said the Cabinet Office 
had started an investigation 
into how the confidential 
document fell into un- 
authorized hands. 


Kasparov alleges chess title cheating 


Leningrad (AP) — The 
wo rid chess champion. Gary 
Kasparov, yesterday said two' 
of his aides had left his camp 
during the second half of ms 
title match against Anatoly 
Karpov in Leningrad and mu- 
mated that one might have 
riven defence secrets to Kar- 
pov. 

Kasparov said Gennady 
Timoshchenko and Yevgeny 
Vladimirov had left his dose 
circle of advisers and. been 
replaced by two friends from 
his hometown of Baku, inter- 
national master Elmar Mager- 


ianov and grandmaster 
Mikhail Gnrovich. 

“Timoshchenko wanted to 
leave the camp already at the 
start of this half of the game,’' 
Kasparov said. “There was a 
clash after game 19 and 
Vladimirov left. Aftergame 19 
it was dear that Vladimirov 
-had copied all of my moves. 
He wanted me to believe that 
he did it on his own. It was up 
to me whether to trust him or 
distrust him.” Kasparov said. 

- There have been wide- 
spread rumors among the ex- 
perts watching the Leningrad 
clash that Vladimirov sold 


“I decided to play simply 
and reliably after the 19th 
game. My aim was to draw 20 
and 21 and win the 22nd, 
which I achieved." 

Karpov said he could not 
understand why he frequently 
had time trouble in the match. 
He said he had no guarantee of 
success against Andrei Soko- 
lov, a Russian, aged 23. when 
he meets him next February in 
Linares, Spain, to decide who 
will challenge Kasparov for 
the world title next 
September. '

The challenger took game 
19, the thud in a ran of three 
victories that enabled him to 
pull level with Kasparov at 9 Vi 
points each before games - 20 
and 21 - were drawn and 
Kasparov won game 22 to 
retain bis title. 

“Before the match my idea 
was simple — 1 to . score 12 or 
12'^ points. In the practical 
sense, the beauty and quality 
did not matter so much,” 
Kasparov said. .“But when ihe 
games got beautiful,. I forgot 
about my major aim and lost

Praise 
for 

Reagan 

attitude 

From Christopher Walker 
Reykjavik 

Hopes for a successful out- 
come to ibis weekend's un- 
expected super-power summit 
rose vesierday when Mr 
Mikhail Gorbachov delivered 
an upbcai arrival speech 
warmly praising ihe respon- 
sible a'ttinide to the meeting 
which be said had been 
adopted by President Reagan. 

Seizing the opportunity pro- 
vided by the presence of an 
Iceland Television micro- 
phone at the airport. Mr 
Gorbachov deftly upstaged 
the US leader, who had made 
no arrival address. 

The Kremlin leader used 
the opportunity to stress that 
the dominant topic at the 
three weekend meetings 
should be nuclear disarm- 
ament. 

Accompanied by his wife. 
Raisa. Mr Gorbachov said 
that remarks made by Mr 
Reagan earlier in the week 
provided “not a little foun- 
dation” on which to start a 
meeting at which he hoped 
both leaders would share of 
responsibility for the future of 
the world. 

“We are prepared to look 
for solutions to the burning 
problems which concern peo- 
ples all over the world, and 
among them, with first prior- 

Reagan demand S 

Woman in the news S 
Leadi ng article 17 

ity. to take the derisions which 
would remove the threat of 
nuclear war and which would 
allow us to tackle thoroughly 
the problem of disarmament,” 
Mr Gorbachov said. 

The brief speech reinforced 
recent claims fry senior of- 
ficials from both sides that a 
likely outcome of the meetiog 
would be a removal of remain- 
ing differences on a treaty 
limiting medium -range nuc- 
lear missiles in Europe. 

Experts predict sum atreaty 
will be signed at the next “full 
summit” in Washington, 
whose date will be on this 
weekend's agenda. 

The arrival of the Soviet 
delegation was preceded by 
confirmation form a senior 
Soviet official that the dis- 
sident poetess Irina Ratush- 
inskaya had been 
unconditionally released from 
her Soviet labour camp. 

Since her sentence in March 
1983 of seven years on strict 
regime in the camp plus a 
further five internal exile for 
“anti-Soviet agitation and 
propaganda”, she has become 
one of the best known pris- 
oners of conscience in the 
West.

Owen is first choice 


Nearly half of those holding top jobs In Britain believe 
that Dr David Owen would make a better Prime Minister 
than Mrs Thatcher, who had the sapport of only a third, 
according to a Harris poll In The Spectator (Martin 
Fletcher writes). 

Dr Owen, backed by just over half those polled compared 
with only 10 per cent for Mrs Thatcher, also emerges as the 
most attractive personality of the four party leaders. Mrs- 
Tha tciier is considered humourless and dktairid, and 
although it was felt she had done a good job as Prime Min- 
ister, she was now regarded by 40 per cent of respondents 
as a liability. 

The poU was of 155 senior people in industry, business, 
finance, politics, the law and other professions, of whom 48 
per cent were Conservative voters. ■

The Government's sub- 
sidy to British Rail for 
passoger services has 
been set at £7123 million 
for the 1986-87 financial 
year, 25 per cent lower than 
in 1983 in real terms. 

Mr John Moore, Sec- 
retary of State for Trans- 
port, said yesterday that 
the grant was well within 
the target which the rail- 
ways were set by the Gov- 
ernment and reflected a 
considerable achievement 
by the British Railways 
Board. 

Grants for passenger 
services in the preceding

million (1983); £822 mil- 
lion (198485) and £820 
million in 1985-86. Con-

Seamen at Dover and Folkestone derided yest erday to 
continue indefinitely the stoppage that has crippled 
Seatink ferry services at 13 ports (Tim Jones writes). 

The situation could worsen next week when the resirit of 
a ballot on industrial action by 2,000 members <rf foe Na- 
tional Union of RaOwaymen, who cany out dockside work 
at foe ports, is known. 

The rflihn en could disrupt Isle of Wight services, where 
they handle foe six forties now operating normally, and 
refuse to handle lorries using Seafink ports, affecting the 
operations of French, Belgian, Dutch and B&I ferries. 

Mr Sam McCIuskie, assistant general secretory of foe 
National Union of Seamen, txrid a mass meeting of onion 
members at Dover and Folkestone that if Seafink members 
lost their fi ght over «M«ninfl levels, Townsend Thoressn 
employees would be nest. 

At Portsmouth, a picket of crew members who are 
occupying foe Seafink ferry, Earl Harold, failed to stop 
freight reaching the Corbkxe, the only vessel still operating 
to tfea Channel Islands. 

Union members at Folkestone have rejected a Seafink 
offer to increase pay by about £10 a week with a lump sura 
of £500 if they accept new working practices. The dispute is 
foe result of foe loss of 492 jobs. 


Teachers and local 
authority employers looked to 
be on collision course last 
night after the news that 
unions seek to change some of 
the terms of the draft. pay

entry in July. 

When teachers meet 
employers next week they will 
seek the following amend- 
ments to the summer deal: 


• Extra allowances for prin-; Association of Head Teachers

• The number of the new

• The number of principal 
teachers per school to be 
decided not by local authori- 
ties, but by agreed criteria on a 
national basis; 

• Increased payments for 
transferring to the new Main

Two factors account for the 
change in mood.

Stalker faces

The Greater Manchester 
Police Authority's finance and 
policy committee has decided 
not to pay the £21.000 legal 
costs incurred by Mr John 
Stalker in the successful fight 
to dear his name. 

The committee voted 
overwhelmingly against pay- 
ing the costs after a debate, 
barred to the press and public, 
on Thursday. 

Mr Stalker, the authority’s 
deputy chief constable, was 
suspended from duty for three 
months this year and investi- 
gated by a team of detectives 
headed by Mr Colin Sampson, 
CbiefConstable of West York-

In this case the bill should be

There is no precedent for 
such a move by the associ-

for a judicial review of the

Mr Anthony Lester, QC for

submitted that the case raises 
issues of general importance 
about foe power of local 
authorities to ban newspapers 
from public libraries for politi- 
cal reasons. 

He told the High Court that

World Chess Qiampionship 


Contest worthy of greatest 


From Raymond Keene, Leningrad 


By a Staff Reporter 

Health authorities all over 
ihe country face an acute 
shortage of junior doctors, 
causing ward closures, can- 
celled clinics and reduced 
operating sessions. 

A survey published today 


The contest between Gary 
Kasparov and Anatoly Karpov 
has been one of the greatest 
sequences of - nraltunatch 
games in the history of chess 
in its post-medieval form. 

The 96 games played in 
three matches over two years 
have edipsed such classics as 




a rare accolade: “The wooden 
pieces spring to life in young 
Nigel's hands.” 

For foe first time since 
Soviet grandmasters began 
their domination of foe 
championship in 1948, an all- 
Soviet match was played in

health districts have problems 


recruiting junior doctors, and 
many find it difficult to meet 
the high cost of using locum 
agencies. 

The problem has worsened 
over the last two years with 
the restrictions limiting over- 
seas doctors to four years in 
Britain. In foe past, many 
districts relied on those doc- 
tors to fill senior house officer 
posts. 

Eighty-seven districts said 
they had senior house officer 
shortages and 77 found it 
difficult to recruit for full-time 
posts and locum cover. The 
districts that suffer are those 
without teaching hospitals 
where there are no favourable 
career prospects. The problem 
is worse in certain specialties 
such as orthopaedics, 
anaesthetics, accident and 
emergency, ear, nose and 
throat, ophthalmology, ob- 
stetrics, psychiatry and gen- 
eral surgery. 

Mr Philip Hunt, NAHA 
director, is seeking an urgent 
meeting with the Department 
of Health and Social Security. 

The British Medical Associ- 
ation said yesterday that train- 
ing programmes in non- 


JEnwe and, most recently, 
Botvimuk-Smyslov. 

With Karpov aged 35 and 
Kasparov only 23, there is 
every likelihood that their 
battles may oontinne for sev- 
eral years. The threat to foe 
older man will come from 
Andrei Sokolov, the b rilliant 
Muscovite, jnst two weeks 
older than the champion, and 
Nigel Short, of Bolton in 
Lancashire* 

The latter, at 21, is the 
West’s only credible chal- 
lenger in foe foreseeable fa- 
tnre. Mikhail Botviutik, the 
grand old man of Soviet chess, 
wbo was champion with two 
short breaks from 1948 to 
1963 1 recently accorded Short 


The impact on chess of a 

high-profile mmifh in a watig 

centre such as London, has 
been immense. Sponsors and 
television companies have 
started to take an unprece- 
dented interest. The world- 
wide coverage dwarfed even 
that of Fischer-Spassky in 
1972, usually regarded as the 
pinnacle of global chess 
interest. 


At the Park Lane Hotel in 
London, a backdrop credited 

every main sponsor for foe 
British leg of the wa^-h. 

In foe Leningrad venue, in 
an unprecedented move for a 

chess championship, the 
Soviet organizers set op plac- 
ards advertising a bank"*** 
group in Finland and foe 1 


Seattle games - both were 
sponsors. 

A new commercial aware- 
ness is rife. Kasparov pfam to 
market instructional vMfco 
cassettes, set op worfcMHe 
franchises of foe Botviutifc 
training school which handled 
his early chess education, and 
branch a world tonr to promote 
chess. In foe process the 

Soviet Union will be indirectly 
but tangibly marketed and 
promoted. 

In Kasparov and Karpov foe 
Soviet Union has two of its 
most prominent cultural and 
sporting ambassadors. 

. After 96 gnmes, their, result 
ova- three matches was 
staggeringly dose. Kasparov 
is dearly stronger in terms of 
ideas and brilliance, bntat 

London and Leningrad Karpov 
played intelligently to his dwn 
strengths. Only his 
inexplicable time-out for game 
20 after three consecutive 
victories may -have anni- 
hilated, finally, his chance of

dead his adoptive parents, half 
sister, Mrs Sheila CaffeS, and 
her twin sons aged six with a 
semi-automatic J 2 rifle, he 
expressed the view that it had 
been written a considerable 
time ago. 

But Mr Bamber told him he 
thought that because of one of 
the names on the envelope it 
was recent, and when he 
showed emotion Mr Code left 
him to his private grief 

Earlier, during the seventh 
day of the trial, Mr James 
Richards, an Army officer 
who had once been a student 
friend of Mr Bamboos girl 
friend. Miss Julie Mugford. 
told foe court of occasions 
when the defendant had ex- 
pressed hatred for his parents. 

6 He said be haled 
his parents...!! did 
sound like hate 9 

Mr Richards said: “I 
remember one occasion, in 
about foe summer of 1985, 
when Bamber said ‘1 hate my 
parents*. I said ‘Oh come offit, 
Jeremy, we all say that at some 
point of time* and be replied ‘1 
do.’ 

“He said it with a great deal 
of vehemence and quite sin- 
cerely. He expressed that view 
two or-three times.” 

Under cross-examination 
Mr Richards added: “It really 
did sound like bate.” 

Mr Cock told the jury that 
he provisionally put Mrs June 
Bamber’s estate at £229,980 
and Mr NevOl Bomber’s at 
£206,940. 

Assets included property, 
one farm, a shared interest in 
another, and two caravan 
sites. Mrs Caffell, aged 27, a 
London model known as 
“Bambi” who originally was 
suspected by police of having 
committed the murders before 
shooting herself had died 
intestate. 

Mr Cock added that neither 


of foe deceased parents bad 
indicated any intention to 
change foe wills which, foe 
prosecution has alleged, 
meant that Mr Bamber, in foe 
event of bis half sister's death, 
stood to inherit £436,000. 

Mr Cock said that be had 
found £2,000 m aria at Whim 
House Farm, ToDeshimt 
D’Arcy, Essex. 

He said that after the 
killings Mr Bamber derided 
that the insurance cover of 
£1 7,000 for the contents of foe 
eighteenth century farm house 
was too low and had increased 
it to £150,000. Sotheby's had 
been brought in to evaluate it. 

Del Sgi Neil Davidson, a 
scene of crimes officer, agreed 
with the trial Judge, Mr Justice 
Drake, that from foe moment 
he arrived at foe score eady 
on August 7, 1985, the view of 
senior officers there was that 
Mrs Caffell had carried out the 
murders before committing 
suicide. 

That, be agreed, had col- 
oured his examination of 
White House Farm. He said 
that a hacksaw Made, which 
foe prosecution alleges was 
used to open a downstairs 
bathroom window for Mr 
Bamber to gain entry, was 
discovered two months after 
the massacre immediately 
outside foe room, and that on 
the window there were signs of 
forced entry. 

Mr John Hayward, a sci- 
entist specializing in the dis- 
tribution of bloodstains, 
showed foe jury Mrs CafTdTs 
bloodied turquoise night dress 
which he said indicated that 
she was initially shot in a 
reclining and not horizontal 
position. 

Dr Peter Vanezis, who car- 
ried out foe post-mortem 
examinations, told foe jury 
that Mrs Caffell suffered two 
point blank gunshot wounds 
to the neck. 

The trial continues on 
Monday. 


Safety guide for 
building societies 


. Guidelines designee! to pre- 
vent building societies from 
taking risks with investors’ 
deposits are to be issued soon 
by the newly-formed miiidiug 
Societies Commission.' g,.' 

In its first Prudential 7/ote, 
the commission will specify 
the amount of reserve capital 
societies will need to protect 
customers’ savings from the 
dangers the industry will face 
when regulations are relaxed 
on January 1. 

The guidelines wfll arrive at 
a lime when societies fed 
themselves under growing 
pressure to tighten their lend- 
ing procedures because of foe 
recent increase in mortgage 
arrears and repossessions. 

The commission, which 
came into being on September 
25, is anxious to ensure that 
building societies do not jeop- 
ard ize the security of 
investors' deposits when they 
arc allowed to diversify into 
new financial services. 

The commission’s chair- 
man. Mr Michael Bridgeman, 
said that while most societies 
have sufficient capital re- 
serves for present market con- 
di (ions, “many may nor foUy 
appreciate foe greater nsks 
thev will face as a result of 
increased competition”. _ 

“Many building societies 
have increased their readiness 
io raise income multiples and 
provide 100 per cent mort- 
Us without matching it with 
5 stricter appraisal of foe 
ability of the borrower to pay. 

-Declared arrears by soci- 
eties are now on an upward 
trend, and foe foil extent of 
Ufis change has been masked 
bv the willingness of many 
societies to rephase payments 
Si a mortgage if a borrower 
nins into difficulties- 

“There must now be a real 


possibility that this trend in 
arrears will accelerate to the 
extent that measurable losses 
do arise on m origage booksT 
be said. 

' He pointed out that such a 
situation’ could occur if there 
was a sudden rise m interest 
rates resulting in a significant 
increase in borrowers unable 
to maintain their payments. 

Building societies would 
then be forced to repossess, 
and any attempt to put a large 
number of properties on the 
market could depress prices 
regionally, and even 
nationally. 

Under foe new regulations, 
only societies with assets of 
more than £100 million will be 



able to provide home buyers 
with the complete range of 
owner-occupied professional 
services such as estate agency, 
conveyancing and insurance 
policies. They will also be 
permitted to oflera wide range 
of financial services such as 
unsecured lending, 

But iruury smaller societies 
feel that existing requirements 
are already adequate, and 
have criticized foe new pro- 
posals for being “over- 
cautious”. They nave also 
given a warning that the new 
proposals w01 lead to a wave 
of mergers and greater 
concentration in foe industry, 
as only foe larger societies will 
have sufficient reserves to use 
foe new powers.

New town 
by private 
developers 

By Christopher Wannan 

Property Correspondent ^ 

A £500 nriUkn project for a 
new town of 24)000 people 
north of Swindon, Wiltshire, 
which wffl be one of die largest 
private enterprise town expan- 
sion schemes in Europe, was 
announced yesterday by a 
group representing five build- 
ing and development firms. 

The Haydon Development 
Group, with Thamesdown 
Borough Council, the local 
authority for die Swindon 
area, owns most of the 1300 
acres of largely agricultural 
land on which the development 
would be built, and a planning 
application for the area was 
submitted yesterday . 

A public inquiry wOI be held 
to examine foe scheme, but 

planning permission should be 

{panted by late next' year or 
early 1988, with the 10-year 
programme of construction 

Plans for new towns of fois 
size inevitably attract oppo- 
sition, bat die group believes 
that its scheme is “not unduly 
contentions”. The land is not 
in Che Green Belt, and is not 
high grade agricultural land. 
The developers believe the 
main arguments are likely to 
concern foe scale and timing of 
the construction. The main 
features of the proposals are 
9,000 homes on 682 acres of 
land, mth 174 aores of land for 
new industrial and commercial 
development; a new district 
centre to meet shopping and 
community needs, a leisure 
centre, and 355 acres of open 
space. It is believed that 3,000 
jobs win be created for die 
period of construction, and 
that the development wffl lead 
to 4,000 permanent jobs. 

Mr Paul Caftcutt, a director 

of Crest, one of the group, said 
the development provided for 
the long-term needs of Swin- 
don, which has just seen job 
losses in the railway industry, 
and underwrote foe town’s 
future growth. The Haydon 
•Development Group includes

McLeans/Tarmac . and 
Printings..

Successes in drug 
battle ‘distorted’ 

By Peter Evans, Home Affairs Correpondent 


A change in tactics by police 
has given a false impression 
from statistics ofthe success of 
some forces against drug deal- 
ers, according to Release, 
which provides a drugs and 
legal advice and information 
service. 

A survey of solicitors by 
Release suggests some forces 
have responded to the call to 
crack down on drug traffickers 
by charging drug-takers with 
trafficking where formerly the 
charge would have been pos- 
session. 

In the October issue of 
Druglink, journal of foe in- 
stitute for foe Study of Drug 
Dependence. Jane Goodsir, 
director of Release, says traf- 
ficking prosecutions are being 
based on the “theoretical 
possibility that a small quan- 
tity of drugs can be divided 
again and sold in minute 
quantities.” 

. If the statistics are to be 
believed, she says, the police 
are having big successes in 
catching traffickers. But police 
continue to influence de- 
cisions concerning the 
prosecution of cases, despite 
foe introduction of foe Police 
and Criminal Evidence Act. 
where decisions on prosecut- 
ing were to be made by an 
independent authority. 

In most cases, police remain 
responsible for drawing up 
charges at the conclusion of q 
criminal investigation. Police 
influence on charges at dif- 
ferent levels of seriousness 
may mean the statistics for 
“major" trafficking convic- 
tions are inflated. 


“In our experience, 
questionable decisions are 
made about the prosecution of 
certain offences, particularly 
possession with intent to sup- 
ply, a trafficking offence sub- 
ject to the same maximum 
penalties as actual supply. 
Shored up by verbal ad- 
missions in police stations and 
police statements on drug use, 
these cases are often bitterly 
contested.” 

Police perceptions of 
“suppliable” quantities have 
changed recently, the article 
says. “In our research, we 
found some cities where 
defendants who might have 
been charged with simple 
possession of, say, one gram of 
heroin five years ago would, 
these days, be charged with a 
supplying offence. 

“This despite the fact that 
purity levels of heroin are 
decreasing and the smoking of 
heroin (which needs more 
heroin than injecting for the 
same effect) is more common, 
so users may now possess less 
pure substances in larger 
quantities.” 

Under English law, foe 
courts have a duty to examine 
foe individual circumstances 
of foe offender. 

“On the basis of informa- 
tion received from defending 
solicitors, il seems the 
defendant's circumstances are 
often disregarded' by courts 
dealing with drags cases, in a 
manner that would not be 
acceptable in offences such as 
theft, or even offences involv- 
ing violence.”

‘Blandford 
in cocaine 
users’ den’ 

Lord Blandford was found 
in a cocaine users' den when 
police raided it. a court heard 
yesterday.

Blandford. aged 30. Mr Law- 
rence Zephyr, a company 
director, arrived at the den 
with £2.300 of foe drug bidden 
under the brim of his hat. it 
was alleged at Knightsbridge 
Crown Court. 

Mr Zephyr, aged 53, of 
.Ashmore Road. Maids Vale, 
north-west London, pleads 
not guilty to four charges of 
possessing and supplying co- 
caine. He also denies four 
firearms charges. 

Detectives found Lord 
Blandford when they raided 
the basement flat below A & S 
Menswear Shop in Edgware 
Road, north-west London, on 
December 13. 1985. He was 
on his own. Mr Anthony 
Glass. QC, for the prosecu- 
tion. said. 

He told foe jury: “It would 
not be an exaggeration to say 
the basement was a cocaine- 
users’ den.” 

Mr Glass said Mr Zephyr 
was arrested and detectives 
raided a flat where he was 
slaying in Golders Green 
Road in north-west London. 

He alleged that there they 
found hidden £21.000 of co- 
caine powder, drug-taking 
equipment, and two guns. 
They also founds handbag 
containing foe logbook and 
registration documents of 
Lord Blandford's car. 

The case continues on

Brakes on death crash 
lorry are now banned 


The braking system on a 32- 
ton articulated Jony that 
knocked down and killed 
force little girts is now banned, 
il was disclosed yesterday. 

Lieanne Berry, aged seven, 
Sadie Wilkins, aged nine, and 
Marie Stone, aged 10. all from 
Maidstone in Kent, died when 
foe lorry driven by Mr Eric 
Nicholl hit a group of mothers 
and children as they left All 
Saints primary school in 
Hayle Road. Maidstone, on 
May 20. 

Today their parents sobbed 
as the inquest jury of four men 
and four women at Maidstone 
delivered verdicts of acciden- 
tal death. 

Mr Nicholl, aged 32, of 
Staplestreet Road, Bougbton. 
near Faversham, Kent, ex- 
pressed his deep personal 
regret 

A Department of Transport 
vehicle examiner, Mr Maurice 
Eton, said that articulated 
lorries fitted with similar 
braking systems would now 
fail foe MoT roadworthiness 
test. 


But he said there was no 
record of any previous ac- 
cident arising from the same 
cause. 

A police driving instructor. 
Del Con Barry Hill, said foe 
exhaust braking system on foe 
juggernaut was “far more 
efficient and excessive than I 
would have expected”. 

In his statement. Mr 
Nicholl said: “From foe tech- 
nical evidence that has been 
given, 1 now know that foe 
exhaust brake system on my 
lorry, which I had always 
regarded as an added safety 
feature, could in certain 
circumstances cause trailer 
swing, but in foe months I had 
been driving foe vehicle, I had 
never had it happen before.” 

Mr Nicholl, who worked for 
A Wood and Co, of Detiing. 
had been a lorry driver since 
1970. He told foe hearing 
yesterday that at the time of 
ihe accident he “fell a couple 
of bumps from ihe rear” but 
“at no time did 1 feel that foe 
vehicle had gone out of 
control”.

Runaway 
train in 
near miss 

By Rodney Cowton 

Transport Correspondent 

A runaway, dritertess train 
casne within 15ft of crashing 
head-on into another train at 
Liverpool Street station, 
London. The crash was only 
averted by a signalman at the 
station who ran across Che line 
front his signal-box and ap- 
plied the brake on the train. 

British Rail was yesterday 
still trying to discover how the 
train could have ran away, 
travelling 200ft beyond the 
end of Us platform and cross- 
ing some points, with nobody 
at (he controls. 

One railwayman said the 
incident was unique in his 
experience. 

it happened when the driver 
and the gnard of the train 
which was to form the lOpra to 
Southend on Thursday were 
away having a break. 

British Rail Eastern Region 
said at about 9.45 Mr Manrice 
Holmes, a signalman, realized 
that the train was making an 
unauthorized movement when 
it showed up on the panel in 
Ids signal box. 

Mr Holmes ran across the 
line, climbed on to the train, 
and stopped it when it was 
only about 15ft short of an 
incoming train which was 
stationary on the same stretch 
of line. British Rail said that 
because the runaway train was 
moving slowly any impact 
would have been limited. 

An eyewitness said some 
passengers realized that some- 
thing was wrong and about 20 
jumped off as the runaway 
train moved down the 
platform. 

British Rail will be bokling 
an interna] inquiry next Fri- 
day. One question to which 
they wffl be seeking an answer 
was how the train came to ran 
away. If the train's power was 
switched on it would have 
required pressure from a 
driver on the so-called dead- 
man's handle to start it in 
motion. 

Among the possibilities that 
the inquiry is likely to examine 
are whether any of the brake- 
lines had fractured, or there 
had been a loss of brake fluid. 


Jordanian 
‘claimed 
he could 
save lives’ 

Nezar Hinckmi. the alleged 
Arab terrorist, said he could 
save the lives of future bomb- 
ing targets to help himself 
after he was arrested, the 
Central Criminal Court was 
told yesterday. 

Mr Hindawi. aged 32. a 
Jordanian journalist who de- 
nies using his girt friend as a 
human timebomb in an at- 
tempt to blow up an El Al jet 
with 375 people on aboard, 
also described in derail how he 
was recruited by Syria, il was 
alleged. 

Dei Sgt William Price, of 
Scotland Yard’s anti-terrorist 
squad, said he was told in an 
interview with Mr Hindawi 
that “he had information 
which would save the lives of 
people in the UR and abroad, 
and 3skvd if that would help 
him”. 

According to the officer. Mr 
Hindawi ottered to trade “fu- 
ture plans concerning terrorist 
attacks in the UK and abroad. 

“He said he had informa- 
tion that just outside London 
there was a secret place with 
TNT, detonators and timers. 
There was also a similar 
location in Brighton. 

“He further stated that an 
Arab student in Sheffield, 
studying chemicals, knew the 
locations and addresses of 
these secret places.” 

Sgt Pnrc addl'd that Mr 
Hindawi told him a Syrian 
Arab airline crew was respon- 
sible for bringing in explo- 
sives. drugs and guns. 

“He said they were based at 
the Royal Garden Hotel in 
London on stop-over visits, 
and that the crew comprised 
Ssrian security officers.” 

Sgt Price said foal m earlier 
interviews Mr Hindawi told 
him he was recruited in S> ria 
by an international syndicate 
to smuggle drugs and had no 
idea that a bag carried by his 
Irish girl friend. Miss Ann 
Murphy, aged 32. as she went 
to board an El Al jet at 
Heathrow contained 
explosives. 

But later Mr Hindawi said 
he wanted to tell foe truth, the 
detective said. 

Mr Hindawi allegedly told 
the officer that when he first 
came to London he became 
disillusioned with King 
Husain's regime in Jordan and 
joined foe Jordanian Revolu- 
tionary Movement for Na- 
tional Salvation. . . . 

According to Sgt Price. Mr 
Hindawi described how he 
went to Damascus to recruit 
other Jordanians for fois new 
political group. 

. “He said he was stopped at 
Damascus by security men at 
foe airport. He said he was 
questioned about his visit to 
Syria and his motives, and 
was then taken to sec foe head 
of aJl military intelligence. 

“He said he was taken to a 
lavish room with electric 
doors. Inside there was a large 
box of cigars on the table. The 
man behind il greeted him.” 

Sgt Price alleged Mr 
Hindawi said he was in- 
troduced to two men, Mr Said 
and Mr A'Kour. 

“He was taken to another 
place by Said w’ho said he 
could be of help. They then 
discussed demands he would

The trial was adjourned 
until Monday.

THE TIMES SATURDAY OCTOBER II 1986 


CONSERVATIVE PARTY CONFERENCE 


Leader’s speech • Currie comments • Tebbit onslaught 


Sweet and 
sour 
verdicts 
by Currie 


By Nicholas Wood 
Political Reporter 

Mrs Edwina Currie, the 
newly appointed junior health 
minister with a taste for firing 
dangerously, was at the centre 
of a new rumpus with her patty 
last night after blithely mark- 
ing the conference cards 


of 


some of her Cabinet betters in 
a television interview. 

Mr Douglas Hard, the 
Home Secretary, came bottom 
of the class for his perfor- 
mance in the law debate. 

Mrs Currie, ignoring the 
convention that ministers do 
not criticize each other 
public, said that he had failed 
to absorb die lesson that 
presentation is a$ important as 
policy. 

“Douglas had some very 
good potides-Jt did need 
potting across in a slightly 
spicier, and perhaps more 
aggressive, way", she said. 

But she was happy to speak 
well of her master at the 
Department of Health and 
Social Security, saying that 
Mr Norman Fowler had nn 
the “speech of the con- 
ference". 

Mr George Younger, the 
Secretary of Stale for Defence, 
was judged “very effective 
but there was a sweet and sow 
verdict on Mr Kenneth Baker, 
Secretary of State for Educa- 
tion and Science. 

He had picked up the mood 
of the conference “very well" 
but he was not just yet a 
serious contender for the 
leadership of the party. 

Mrs Currie explained: 
“He's only just entered Cabi- 
net and the years of experience 
showed more in someone like 
Norman Fowler". 

The quick-fire minister’s 
verdicts raised the eyebrows 
ather than the ire of her 
colleagues, though one Tory 
MP, Mr Richard Holt 
(Laugbaurgh) caught np in the 
shock wave of last week's 
outburst over the fattening 
tendency among northerners, 
again demanded her 
resignation. 

Mrs Carrie was appearing 
on a BBC conference com- 
mentary programme with Sir 
Marcus Fox, a vice-chairman 
of the Conservative 
backbenchers' 1922 Com- 
mittee. 

He ribbed her about her 
advice to northerners last 
week to give up crisps and 
beer. 

“She’s got a big husband, 
bat if she'd been to the 
Yorkshire reception last night, 
he wo Didn't have been able to 
protect her." 

He added: “I adore Edwina 
because she's good valne-Jmt 
we northerners are sensitive 
people. We don't like being 
lectured." 


Thatcher crusade for popular capitalism 


Mrs Margaret Thatcher, 
the Prime Minister, in her 
speech to the Conservative 
Party conference in Bourne- 
mouth yesterday, said it had 
been a responsible conference, 
the conference of a party that 
was the last Government, was 
the present Government and 
would be the next Gov- 
ernment. 

They had heard from 
ministers' forward-looking 


policies that were shaping the 


iture of the country. 

“We are a party which 
knows what it stands for and 
what it seeks to achieve. We 
are a party which honours the 
past that we may build for die 
future," she said. 

Last week Labour bad made 
the bogus claim that it was 
putting the people first 
Yet Labour bad voted to 
remove the right to a secret 
ballot before a strike; voted to 
remove the right of trade 
union members to take their 


# Without choice, 
talk of morality is an 
idle and empty 
thing 9 


union to court; voted for the 
State to renationalize British 
Telecom and British Gas, 
regardless of the millions of 
people who had been able to 
own shares for the first time in 
their lives. 

She said: “What the Labour 
Party of today wants is: hous- 
ing municipalized; industry 
nationalized; the police ser- 
vice politicized; the judiciary 
radicalized; union member- 
'ship tyrannized; and, above all 
and most serious of all, our 
defence neutralized- Never. 
Not in Britain." 

Turning to the Alliance, she 
said where they were not 
divided they were vague and 
where they were not vague 
they were divided. 

They appeared to be en- 
gaged in a confused squabble 
about whether or not Polaris 
should be abandoned or re- 
placed or renewed or re- 
examined and if so when, and 
how, and possibly why. 

If they could not agree on 
the defence of the country, 
they could not agree on any- 
thing. “Where Labour has its 
Militant Tendency, they have 
their muddled tendency", she 
said. 

The charge sometimes 
made against the Conser- 
vative Party was that it was 
only, concerned with money 
and efficiency. 

She was the first to acknowl- 
edge that morality was not and 
never had been the monopoly 
of any one party. Nor did they 
claim that it was. But they did 
claim that it was the founda- 
tion of their policies. 

They were opposed to infla- 
tion not only because it put 
prices up. but also because it 
destroyed the value of savings, 
destroyed jobs and with it 
people’s hopes. 


.“Enlarging choice is rooted 
in our Conservative tradition. 
Without choice, talk of moralj 
jiy is an idle and empty thing," 
she said. 

The Government had achi- 
eved much in seven years, but 
there was still a great deal to 
do. t 

The whole industrial world 
was seeing change at a speed 
that their forebears never 
contemplated. Traditional 
jobs were being taken over by 
computers. People were cho- 
osing to spend their money in 
new ways. 

It would be foolish to 
pretend that that transition 
coukl be accomplished with- 
out problems. But it would be 
equally foolish to pretend that 
Britain could ignore what was 
happening in the world. 

Yet that was exactly what 
Labour proposed to do. They 
wanted to put the clock hack 
and set the country back. 

They wanted to go back to 
state direction and control, to 
over-manning, old in- 
efficiency and to making life 
difficult for the wealth cre- 
ators. the scientists, the en- 
gineers, the designers, the 
managers, the inventors — all 
those on whom the country 
relied to create the industries 
and jobs for the future. What 
supreme folly. It defied all. 
common sense. 

Thousands would lose their 
jobs from the closure of 
American bases. Santions 
against South Africa would 
cost thousands of jobs in 
Britain, apart from the dev- 
astating consequences for 
black South Africans. 

Out would go jobs in 
nuclear power stations and, on 
top of all that, jobs would 
suffer as would-be investors 
set up elsewhere. 

“Labour say they would 
create jobs. But those policies 
would destroy jobs," she said. 

Training was not a pal- 
liative for unemployment It 
would play an ever larger part 
in industrial life, for only 
modem, efficient industry and 
commerce would produce the 
jobs people needed. 

Their opponents would 
have them believe that all 
problems could be solved by 
state intervention, but govern- 
ments should not run busi- 
ness. The weakness of the case 
for state ownership had be- 
come all too apparent 
For state planners did not 
have to suffer the con- 
sequences of their mistakes. It 
was the taxpayers who had to 
pick up the bill (applause). 

The policies the Govern- 
ment had pioneered were 
catching oh' in country after 
country. Conservatives “be-, 
lieve in popular capitalism, in' 
a property-owning democ- 
racy. And it works." 

She had been present re- 
cently in Scotland at the sale 
of the millionth council house. 
“Now let’s go for the second 
million " 

Millions had become 


shareholders already and there 
would soon be opportunities 
for millions more in British 
Gas, British Airways, British 
Airports and Rolls-Royce. 

“Who says we have run out 
of steam? We are in our prime 
(cheers and applause). 

. “Popular capitalism is noth- 
ing less than a crusade to 
enfranchise the many in the 
economic life of the nation. 
We Conservatives are return- 
ing power to the people: That 
is the way to one nation, one 
people" (applause). 

There were many people 
who could not bear good 
news. It was sort of infection 
of the spirit, and there was a 
lot of it about (laughter). 

In the eyes of those hand- 
wringing merchants of gloom 
and despondency, everything 
that Britain did was wrong. 

Their favourite word was 
crisis. It was a Crisis when the 
price of oil went up and when 
it came down; if they did not 
build new roads, and when 
they did. It was a crisis if 
Nissan did not come to Brit- 
ain, and when it did. 

“It's being so cheerful as 
keeps 'em going (laughter). 

“What a rotten time these 
people must have, running 
round running everything 
down, especially when there is 
so much to be proud of" 

The Prime Minister then 
listed some of the achieve- 
ments: inflation at its lowest 
for 20 years; basic tax rate 
lowest for 40 years; number of 
strikes the lowest for 30 years; 
great advances in science and 
industry; new enterprises and 
jobs created; the outstanding 
performance of the arts, music 
and entertainment worlds; the 
triumphs of sportsmen and 
women. 

All did Britain proud. “And 
we are mighty proud of them." 

The Conservatives’ oppo- 
nents, having lost the poltical 
argument, tried another tack; 
tried to convey the impression 
that Conservatives did not 
care. 

Those who made the charge 
were those Who supported and 
maintained Mr Arthur Scar- 
gill’s strike for a whole year, 
hoping to deprive industry. 



dependent nuclear deterrent 
by membership of the Nato 
alliance — an alliance based 
on nuclear deterrence — and 
by accepting and bearing in 
full the obligations which 
membership brought All this 
had been common ground. 

But last week the Labour 
party had abandoned that 
ground. 

In a decision of the utmost 
gravity, Labour voted to give 
up Britain's independent nu- 
clear deterrent unilaterally. 

Labour would also require 
the United States to remove 
its nuclear weapons from Brit- 
ain and to close its nuclear 
bases, although those were 
vital not only for Britain's 
defence but also for the de- 
fence of the entire Atlantic 
Alliance. 

“A Labour Britain would be 
a neutralist Britain. It would 
be the greatest gain for the

power, heat and light 
They were the ones who 
supported the National 
Health Sendee strike. 

“We are -not going to take 
any lessons in caring from 
people with that sort ofrecond. 
We care profoundly about the 
right of people to be protected 
against crime, hooliganism 
and the evil of drugs. 

“The mugger, the rapist the 
drug trafficker, must all sufier 
the full rigour of the law” 
(cheers). 


That was why the party and 
the Government consistently 
backed the police and the 
courts in Britain and Northern 
Ireland, for without the rule of 
law there could be no liberty. . 

It was because they cared 
deeply about the health ser- 
vice that they had launched 
the biggest hospital building 
programme in the country’s 
history. 

The Government's record 
on the health sen vice was a 
fine one. They were proud of it 
and must see that people knew 
how much they had done. 

They cared deeply that re- 
tired people should never 
again see their hard-earned 
savings decimated by runaway 
inflation. . 

The pensioner who retired 
in 1963 with £1,000 of savings 
found 20 years later that it was 
worth only £160. That was 
why they would never relent 
in the battle against inflation, 
which had to be fought and 
won every year. 

Conservatives cared pas- 
sionately about the education 


of their children. Time and 
again they heard three basic 
messages: bring back the three 
Rs into the schools; bring back 
relevance into the curriculum; 
bring back discipline into the 
classrooms. 


Money by itself would not 
solve the n 


problem because 
money would not raise stan- 
dards. 

• But, by giving parents 
greater freedom to choose, by 
allowing head teachers greater 
control in their school, by 
laying down national stan- 
dards of syllabus and attain- 
ment, she was confident that 
they could improve the qual- 
ity of education in every 
school in the land. 

Most of all, Conservatives 
cared about the country’s 
security. The defence of the 
realm transcended all other 
issues. 

For 40 years every govern- 
ment of Britain of every 
political persuasion had un- 
derstood the need for strong 
defences by maintaining and 
modernizing Britain's in- 


Soviet Union in 40 years. And 
they would have got it without 
firing a shot." 

Some policies could be re- 
versed but weapon develop- 
ment and production took 
years. 

“Of course there are fears 
about the terrible destructive 
power of nuclear weapons", 
the Prime Minister told repre- 
sentatives. - 

“But it is the balance of 
nuclear forces which has pre- 
served peace for 40 years in a 
Europe which twice in the 
previous 30 years tore itself to 
pieces — preserved peace not 
only from nuclear war but 
from conventional war in 
Europe as wdL 

“Let every nation know that 
Conservative government, 
now and in the future, will 
keep Britain's obligations to 
its allies.” 

After the Liberal SDP and 
Labour conferences, there was 
now only one party with an 
effective policy for the defence 
of the realm and that was the 
Conservative Party. 

The great achievements of 
the past seven years now made 
possible the next moves for- 
ward which had been set out 
this week. 


“Our duty is to safeguard 
our country's interests and to 
be reliable friends and allies. 
The failure of the other parties 
to measure up to what is 
needed places an awesome 
responsibility upon us. 

“I believe we have an 
historic duty to discharge that 
responsibility and to cany 
into the future all that is best 
and unique in Britain." 

The Prime Minister was 
applauded in a standing ova- 
tion for 10 minutes, with the 
representatives stamping their 
feet and some waving Union 
Jacks.

£250m for new courts 


Hailsham speeds up trials 
as crime rate keeps rising 


By Frances Gibb, Legal Affairs Correspondent 


A £250 million building 
programme for 270 new 
courts in England and Wales 
by the mid-1990s was outlined 
by Lord Hailsham of Si 
Maryfebone, the Lord Chan- 
cellor, yesterday. 

The programme will tackle 
ihe “severe” rise in the work- 
load of the criminal courts 
which is at “an all time high” 

He also proposed an emer- 
gency programme of 12 tem- 
po ran- courts for London, 
which had freed “an excep- 
tional surge" in criminal 
cases: last year alone the rise 
was 19 per cent, almost twice 
the national average. 

Throughout the whole of 
the country the number of 
cases coming before crown 
courts, -where the pressure had 
been “particularly severe", 
had risen by as much as 65 per 
cent since 1979, he added. 

“The increase has been both 
continuous and progressive 

and shows as yet no signs of 

abatement," the Lord Chan- 
cellor said. 

Lord Hailsham, speaking at 
the opening of a new £3 
million crown court in Isle- 
worth. west London, said that 
one reason was the rise in 


crime. But it was also because 
a greater proportion of defen- 
dants were opting for trial in 
the crown court. 

The importance of bringing 
cases to trial speedily could 
not be overstated, he said. 
“Justice delayed is justice 
denied, denied to the prosecu- 
tion no less than the defence." . 

The Government is taking a 
number of measures to tackle 
the rise in criminal cases. It is 
expected to include proposals 
in its Criminal Justice Bill to 
abolish the right to choose 
jury trial for some offences, 
and to raise to £ 2,000 the 
threshold for criminal damage 
cases which can go to the 
crown court. 

The new crown prosecution 
service is also expected to 
weed out weak cases which 
will no longer go to the crown 
court. 

Lord Hailsham said the 
number of circuit judges had 
been increased from 315 to 
3S5: and on top of a £130 
million court building pro- 
gramme, which has replaced 
or built 140 courtrooms, there 
would be another 270 in the 
next 10 years at a cost of £250 
million. 


As many as half of those will 
be in London and the South- 
east In addition, because of its 
special needs, there had been 
80 temporary courts in 
London. 


But because of the 
“disporportionately heavy” 
problems of the Loudon 
courts, where “waiting times 
are still far too long", a further 
emergency programme was 
being considered for 12 more 
temporary courts, if possible 
by next year. 


In spite of the increased 
workload, waiting times be- 
tween committal and trial 
have been cut. Since' 1979, 
average waiting times between 
committal and trial had fallen 
from 17.6 weeks to 14 J weeks 
at the end of June. 


In the light of the rise in 
cases, that showed a “massive 
improvement in 

productivity” and was a “trib- 
ute to all who work in the 
courts", although it was a 
slight deterioration over the 
past year, he said 

It was a “significant 
improvement up a moving 
stairway travelling at such an 
impressive rate dow nhill "

‘No violence’ involved 
in police station death 


A pathologist told an in- 
quest at Westminster 
coroners’ court yesterday that 
no violence had been involved 
in the death of a West Indian 
at Kensington police station 
last Wednesday. 

Two further post-mortem 
examinations are to be carried 
out on the man. 

Dr Iain West, the patholo- 
gisx. said that Mr Caiphus 
Amhony Lemard. aged 36, an 
engineer, of Haskell House, 
Stonebridge Park estate, 
Stonebridge. north-west 
London, had died from “in- 
halation of vomit” 

He said that the physical 
side of his examination was 
complete but he was carrying 


put drug tests. “I can say what 
is the immediate cause of 
death. I can't say what led up 
to it. 

Mrs Gareth Peirce, solicitor 
for the family, said that she 
was concerned about the state- 
ment that there was no vi- 
olence involved and drug tests 
were being taken. She re- 
quested a second post-mortem 
examination. 

Mr Rod Fletcher, solicitor 
for the arresting officers, asked 
for a third post-mortem/ 

Dr Paul Knapman, the 
coroner, adjourned the hear- 
ing until October 1 5. “It will 
be a public examination in 
this court in front of a jury," 
h^said. 


Detective admits he 
called man ‘an animal’ 


A detective investigating 
the rape of a girl during the 
Brixton riots agreed yesterday 
that be described a 6 ft 4in 
suspect as “a big animal". 

Dei Sgt David Bowen told 
the jury at the Central Crim- 
inal Court “I got upset at cine 
stage when the man suggested 
the victim consented to sex." 

He added: “I urged him to 
tell the truth and spare the girl 
from the ordeal of coming to 
court to give evidence. He 
admitted that he bad raped 
her" 

The officer denied that 
statements of confession 
made by the man, aged 23, 
had been fabricated. He also 
denied a suggestion that he 


abused the suspect because of 
his colour or threatened him. 

In a statement the man 
allegedly said: “I have been 
telling porky-pies.” He then 
admitted bursting into a house 
in StockweLI with two others 
and raping the girl, aged 24, a 
secretary, at knife point during 
the height of rioting in 
September last year. 

The man. a student, denies 
charges of rape and robbery. 
With him in the dock a 


ith him in the dock are 
Michael Griffiths, aged 22 , a 
tailors' cutter, and Richard 
Leslie, aged 21. a presser. both 
of Union Road. Lambeth, 


who deny robbing other occu- 

ftl 


pants of the house. 
The trial continues. 




Robber talks 
himself into 
7-year term 


Colin Hawkins, a repentant 
robber, talked himself into a 
seven-year prison sentence. 

“There was no evidence 
against him."Mr Allan Green-

A baby's death from 
broncho-pneumonia in her 
-family’s damp maisonette led 
to a council paying 
damages of £13.000 with costs 
yesterday. 

Sarah Finch died in her 
mother’s arms with her father, 
Kevin, and her brother, Rich- 
ard, in the room, their counsel 
Mr Richard Clegg, QC, said in 
the High Court in Manchester. 

A doctor later told an 
inquest that appalling housing 
conditions probably contrib- 
uted to the death in December 
1982 of the baby, aged four 
months. 

Mr Clegg said for three and 
three quarter years Mr Finch 
and his wife, June, both aged 
28, had frequently complained 
about water getting into the 
ground and first floor levels at 
their home but nothing was 
done. 

‘A month after the sad 
death the family was re- 
housed. They left a soggy 
maisonette but, of courseTit 
was too late for baby Sarah," 
Mr Gegg said. 

The claim was for a breach 
of covenant to repair the 
council house at Westdale 
Road, Newall Green, Man- 
chester. and the replacement 
of carpets and fittings in the 
freezing, mould-hit property. 

The general damages were 
for the discomfort and in- 
convenience caused to the 
couple and their other chil- 
dren and psychological shock 
after Sarah's death, which 
badly affected the father. 

The defendants, Manches- 
ter Gty Council, had offered a 
global sum of £13,000 of 
which the father would receive 
£3,135 and his wife £2,090. 
Richard, now aged eight, will 
get a similar sum while Kevin, 
aged nine, and Jane, aged 10, 
receive £1.045 each.

Slow progress on

HOUSE OF LORDS 


The Government was fully 
committed to the completion of 


the European internal market 
because of the b< 


benefits it would 

have for both industry and 
consumer interests in the 
United Kingdom, Lord Lucas of 
Chflworth. Under Secretary of 
State for Trade and Industry, 
said .during a debate in the 
House of Lords on a series of 
European Communities 
Committee reports dealing with 
consumer protection, food- 
stuffs, completion of the in- 
ternal market and other matters. 

The Government would do 
everything possible to ensure 
the momentum and, if possible, 
acceleration, of progress was 
maintained, he said, as one of 
the _ major objectives of the 
British Presidency of the EEC. 
Together with the previous 
presidential countries, Holland 
and Belgium, the United King- 
dom bad developed an action 
programme listing I SO measures 

for consideration by the middle 
of next year. 

Lord Seebohra (Ind), chairman 
of the Select Committee which 
studied the European 
Commission's report on these 
iteues, said progress towards 
iheiniemal market was already 
way behind schedule. 

A timetable of action had 
been drawn up to produce a 
singte. European market by 
1992. with a list of 300 in- 
struments to be adopted for the 
to be achieved,

She gave a warning, how- 
ever, that too much should 
not be expected: there would 
be no negotiations on the 
details of any agreement on

“give impulse” to negotiators 
in Geneva and to work out

final session tomorrow. -Mrs 
Ridgway said the US was not 
even expecting that the Reyk-

would also be wrong to as-

mediate weapons.” 

Mr George Shultz, the Sec- 
retary of State, who spent 
yesterday in intensive talks 
with President Reagan at the 
American Ambassador’s res- 
idence, said on US television 
that the object was to prepare 
the way for the the summit 
meeting in the US. 

“You try to push the ball 
along in the various places,” 
he said, emphasizing that 
human rights were going to be 
“right up at the top of our 
agenda".

Iceland is ready 
for media circus 

From Christopher Walker, Reykjavik 
Icelanders are used to being Miss World and “the world’s 


at the beck and call of the 
elements. This week, in 
preparation for the 
superpowers’ summit talks, 
this remote fishing nation is 
proving it can, at the drop of a 
hat, take on the world’s largest 
media circus and cope. 

“It is because we are used to 
dropping everything and chas- 
ing the fish when they are 
dose that we have been able to 
get this organized,” said Mrs 
Sigridur Snoeyan; a foreign 
ministry offidaL “What has 
been done is little short of a 
miracle.” 

One of the tasks feeing the 
Icelanders has bean to satisfy 
the appetites of the media in 
the face of the news blackout 
on the substance of the sum- 
mit between President Reagan 
and Mr Gorbachov, the Rus- 
sian leader. Mr Gorbachov 
yesterday paid personal trib- 
ute to the way the summit had 
been organized at such short 
notice. 

The fere provided for the 
television people has been 
nothing, if not imaginative. 
Yesterday, as camera crews 
filed through morning drizzle 
to the Soviet Union's press 
centre for their daily briefing, 
Iceland’s top horses were 
galloping past them with large 
Russian and American flags 
blowing in the wind. 

Other events have ranged 
from a slick, fashion show at a 
leading discotheque for the 
Kremlin entourage, to a 
tombola presided over by 


strongest man . 

In an effort to combine self- 
help with assistance to the 
visitors, hundreds oflcelandic 
famili es have moved out of 
their homes and rented them 
to media organizations for up 
to $2,000 aught. 

Many of the city’s taxi fleet 
have been requisitioned by the 
Soviet Union and American 
Governments. “The Russians 
give their driver two free 
meals a day plus unlimited 
coffee, the Americans give ns 
nothing,” complained an Ice- 
lander driving a senior US 
security man. 

In many houses in Reyk- 
javik, elderly women are 
conducting a thriving busi- 
ness, hand-knitting at break- 
neck speed scarves and 
woollen sweaters incorporat- 
ing the Hammer and Sickle 
and the Stars and Stripes. 

Despite the blatant 
profiteering, the Government 
is convinced that by hosting 
the summit in place of 
London — the alternative' 
venue , turned down by the 
White House — the remote 
island with no military 
and the world’s highest 
literacy rate will have reaped 
great benefits. 

Questioned yesterday, Mr 
Sieinfrrimur Hermannsson, 
the Prime Minister, welcomed 
the summit. “At least the 
world will now be aware we do 
not live in igloos, a question I 
have been asked several times 
already this week,” he 
explained. 


The news of Irina Ratoshin- 
slcaya’s unexpected release 
from a seven-year sentence in 
tire strict-regime Mordovian 
Camp for Women, reached 
Kestoa College in Kent, the 
centre which monitors religion 
in Commnnist c oun tries, in a 
personal phone call yesterday. 

She was not due for release 
until 1994, since the prison 
term was to be followed by five 
years’ internal exile. It is 
widely accepted that the poet 
and physicist owes her free- 
dom to the Reykjavik summit 
this weekend. 

Though the release is un- 
conditional, with no restriction 
of movement within the Soviet 
Union, it is not yet known 
whether she wfD receive the 
exit visas she and her hus- 
band, Mr Igor Gerashchenko, 
first applied for in 1990. 

The feet that she chose to 
phone Kestoa College so soon 
after her release snggests that 
she may well wish to come to 
Britain.

By Caroline Moorhead 

to Polish parents in March 
1954. A member of the Rus- 
sian Orthodox Church, she 
studied physics at Odessa 
University from 1971 to 1976, 
and by 1977 was teaching 
physics and mathematics at 
the city’s tea ch er training 
school. Her own teachers had 
considered her as potentially 
brilliant in the arts as she was 
in the sciences. 

Her first dash with the 
authorities came that same 
year over a play she wrote for 
the Odessa theatre, and she 
was demoted to laboratory 
assistant It was then that she 
began writing the poetry for 
which she has become known 
in the West (her verse is 
banned in the Soviet Union). 

Much of it is personal and 
very strongly Christian in 
tone, and she has written 
passionately about what she 
considers the anti-religion 
movement in the Soviet Union. 

This summer a volume of 
her poems. No Pm mot Afraid, 
was published in England, 
indwting poems 


from her prison, which she 
nicknamed “The Small 
Zone”. 

She was first arrested in 
December 1981 for taking part 
in a demonstration in Pushkin 
Square in support of the 
dissident physicist Dr Andrei 
Sakharov. She was freed and 
continued to campaign for 
human rights, particularly the 
right to publish freely and for 
free trade onions. 

In 1982 she was arrested 
near Kiev for “alleged anti- 
Soviet agitation” and given a 
12-year sentence, the first 
woman to receive the maxi- 
mum for her “crime”. 

She was forcibly fed in 
prison during her repeated, 
hunter strikes. Her health 
deteriorated — heart trouble 
and glaucoma were saspected 
— nntfi friends feared she 
might not survive another 
winter In the camp. 

In July, however, she was 
moved to an ordinary prison in 
Kiev, and it was from there 
that she was suddenly released 
mi Thursday. 


It may not be ihc summit, 
but the intensive Soviet build- 
up to today’s Gorbachov- 
Reagan meeting has left no 
room for doubt that whatever 
etymological contortions are 
performed by American 
spokesmen, it is a summit. 

Initial Soviet warnings 
about severe restrictions on 
accrediting newsmen have 
been long forgotten and Mrs 
Raisa Gorbachov has arrived, 
assured of stealing the lime- 
light from a mysteriously ab- 
sent Mrs Nancy Reagan. 

Any final doubts about the 
Soviet altitude towards a 
meeting which Mr Gorbachov 
regards as a vital step towards 
signing the first superpower 
disarmament treaty of this 
decade were removed recently 
by Mr Eduard Shevardnadze, 
the Soviet Foreign Minister, 
who also arrived yesterday. 

The affable Georgian — who 
has struck up what Soviet 
officials term “a good mutual 
understanding” with his Am- 
erican counterpart. Mr George 
Shultz — has described the 
summit as “the most import- 
ant world event in modern 
times, even though the ene- 
mies of detente deny it” 

His remark reflected Krem- 
lin satisfaction that President 
Reagan has agreed second 
lime around to a meeting 
which Soviet leaders believe 
will perform invaluable spade- 
work for the signing of a full 
accord on die reduction of 
intermediate-range nuclear 
missiles in Europe when the 
“frill” summit takes place in 
Washington in December or 
January. 

Under the surface mood of 
near euphoria about the meet- 
ing there has been a growing 
sense of realism in Moscow 
that the much-sought arms 
control agreements still need 
much hard negotiating. 

“There is no sense today in 
being transported by illu- 
sions,” wrote Mr Vladislav 
Drobkov, an influential Prav- 
da commentator. “The work 
at Reykjavik, the road to ach- 
ieving mutual agreements and 
a real reduction in aims, can- 
not be, and for sure will not 
be, easy.” 

Apart from a question of 
image for Mr Gorbachov, 
there are obvious economic 
reasons why Moscow is so im- 


patient for the signing of at 
least one substantive arms 
control agrecmcm. 

It can have been no co- 
incidence that, 24 hours after 
the announcement of the Ice- 
landic summit. Mr Gorba- 
chov was Iccuturing Soviet 
academics about the conti- 
nued resistance inside the 
Soviet Union to his reforms. 

The speech and similar 
laments at earlier speeches in 
the Soviet far east and the 
northern caucases were a re- 
minder that Mr Gorbachov 
arrived here yesterday with 
more domestic difficulties be- 
hind him than when he landed 
in Geneva last November. 

“Because of the economic 
hardships at home, the rum- 
blings of disconicm over his 
cutback on alcohol and the

much needs an international 
success.” one European dip- 
lomat told me. 

“That is why so much 
emphasis is being laid on a 
Euro-missile deal.” 

With electricity rationing 
already in operation in four of 
the 15 Soviet republics, the 
Bubuihkas (old women) pre- 
dicting a particularly harsh 
winter (Moscow has already 
had two un seasonal Septem- 
ber blizzards), and the ill-tem- 
pered queues no smaller, the 
pressure is growing on Mr 
Gorbachov to secure the kind 
of deal which would allow.- 
resources to be transferred 
from the massive Soviet de- 
fence sector. 

These economic considera- 
tions have been reinforced 
since Geneva by the need to 
provide the long suffering So- 
viet public with some tangible 
success after the heavy- 
psychological blows of Cher- 
nobyl. the loss of the liner. The 
Admiral Nakhimov and

Residents baffled by US defection Bonn says 

missiles 
deployed 


From Paul Vallely 
Houston 

The local community in 
which the US scientist Mr 
Arnold Lockshin lived for the 
past six years is in a state ofbe- 
wildered curiosity over his 
decision to defect to the Soviet 
Union with his family. 

Yesterday passers-by paus- 
ing to stare outside the 
family’s red-brick Houston 
home saw only a- vision of 
suburban normality. 

Two cars were parked there. 
A tricycle and other children’s 
toys littered the garden. A 
parcel delivered by the post- 
man sat in the porch. Domes- 
tic rubbish had been neatly 
bagged and put out for collect 
tion on Monday. 

“Just plain going to Russia 
isn’t fair,” grumbled Miss 
Rebecca Oriin, their next-door 
neighbour and a friend of the 
Lockshin’s daughter, Jennifer, 
aged 15. 

Until last week neighbours 
say they would have described 
the Lockshins as “just a 


President Gromyko received 
US defector Mr Arnold 
Lockshin in die Kremlin yes- 
terday and told him he was 
now among friends, Tass said 
(Renter reports from 
Moscow). 

regular family”. Now they are 
scrutinizing their memories 
for dues, recalling only an 
average family with average 
preoccupations. 

“He was against the Viet- 
nam war and burned his draft 
card, but so did many others. 
He was opposed to the re- 
election of Reagan, but then a 
lot of us were,” said a neigh- 
bour, who said the family 
never made any reference to 
the Soviet Union. 

“The only link was that 
Jennifer, the eldest daughter, 
was studying Russian in the 
tenth grade. She was an hon- 
ours student. All the kids were 
in special schools for gifted 
children." 

None recalled the Lock- 
shins ever speaking of the 


tapping of their phone, the 
opening of their mail, the 
obscene phone calls or threats 
of physical violence of which 
Mr Lockshin complained in 
Moscow. 

At the heart of the mystery 
was Dr Lockshin’s work as 
senior pharmacologist at the 
St Joseph Hospital cancer 
research laboratory, from 
which he was sacked in 
August. 

This week the centre’s direc- 
tor, Dr John Stehlin, issued a 
three-line statement on the 
dis missal- It said Mr Lockshin 
had been dismissed because 
he had become increasingly 
withdrawn, inattentive and 
unable to do his work. 

Some colleagues said that 
Mr Lockshin had published 
two well- respected papersin 
the past year, but others said 
that his work had deteriorated 
in recent months. 

“The mother had indicated 
that the father was unhappy at 
his job.” said the youngest 
child's headmistress.

The first of 96 cruise mis- 
siles to be stationed in West 
Germany have been deployed 
at a US Air Force base since 
the end of March, the Govern-

Britons well says 
Antarctic official 

By Nicholas Beeston 

A British Antarctic ex- erator is down,” he said. 


pedition has denied claims by 
US officials that three of its

but how well we shall do so.” 

At the last election in 1982

Strauss is striving to do as 
well, if not better, to give him 
muscle in Bonn for the conser-

federal poll in January, which 
they confidently expect to win. 

Herr Strauss, aged 70 and

One million French view the beloved motor car 


From Diana Geddes 
Paris 

Opinions differ about 
whether a Frenchman's car 
comes between his wife andltis 
mistress m importance, or 
whether it actually takes pre- 
cedence over his mistress. At 
all events, it is one of his most 
cosseted and jealonsly-prized 
possessions, and there are few 
things as aggressive as a 
Fenchman driving his car. 

By the time the French 
’"Salon de KAntomobile” 
closes its doors at the POrtes 
de Versailles in Paris tomor- 
row night (sun), nearly I 
million people will have seen 
the show, at which f utu r isti c 
Bertone models rub shoulders 
with the Citroen Desx-Che- 
vaux, now more than 40 years 
old. 


Despite a fall in attendance 
of almost 25 per cent com- 
pared with the most recent 
Paris show two years ago - 
. largely due to the threat of 
terrorist attacks — the mood 
tins year is npbeat, particu- 
larly among French manufac- 
turers, who are emerging from 
a two-year slump. 

Peugeot is forecasting a 
substantial profit this year, 
Citroen is expected to balance 
its books after several years of 
deficit, and state-owned Re- 
nault hopes to halve last year’s 
10 billion franc (£1 billion) 
loss. 

Despite recent difficulties 
and ™« lay-offs, car mans- 
factoring remains one of the 
most important industries in 
France, employing 200,000. 

Nearly 2 million cars are 
expected to be sold in France 


this year. 63 per cent of than 
French models. (In Britain, 
only 44 per cent of cars sold 
are British). Some 1.7 million 
more will be exported. Last 
year French car exports were 
worth 95 billion francs, repre- 
senting II per cent of the coun- 
try’s exports. 

Although foreign cars have 
been growing in popularity, a 
poll published by Le Monde 
last week showed that 56 per 
cent Of the French population 
still believes French cars to be 
the best, with German cars 
coining a close second (44 per 
cent) and Japanese cars in 
third place (12 per cent), 
British cars were at the bottom 
of the pile, with only 2 per cent 
saying they preferred them. 

Given the continued empha- 
sis on increased speed in the 
new models at the show, it was 

f 


surprising to find that speed 
was considered the least im- 
portant quality for a French- 
man when choosing a car. At 
the top of his list of priorities, 
excluding price, was low petrol 
consumption, followed by si- 
lence and comfort, and then 
the car’s life expectancy. 

Asked how fast they would 
drive on a virtually empty 
motorway with no speed limit, 
only 4 per cent of drivers said 
they would drive at more than 
93 mph. while 60 per cent said 
they would stick within the 
existing motorway speed limit 
of 80 mph. 

France not only has the 
most deadly roads In Europe- 
near!; 11,000 deaths and 
nearly 200,000 injured during 
the past 12 months - but it 
also has the rudest and most 
agressive drivers. You do 


wait for someone to give way 
for yon — yon shove. You never 
say thank yon because that is a 
sign of weakness. 

One third of drivers admit- 
ted that they sometimes 
shouted insnlts at other driv^ 
ers. The worst offenders were 
drivers in the professional and 
senior white-collar classes and 
drivers aged from 18 to 34. 

Another major hazard on 
French roads are traffic jams, 
as immortalized in Truffaut's 
film Weekend, and they are 
getting worse. Three-quarters 
of French families own at least 
one car, compared with 62 per 
cent in Britain, and one in four 
own two or more cars. 

Returning to Paris after a 
weekend in the country has be- 
come a nightmare with regular 
traffic jams of 20 miles or. 
more.

White House pursued 
by Congress on link 
with fatal arms flight 


The White House was 
under intense congressional 
pressure last night to darity its 
possible involvement in the 
flight of an anns^arrying 
cargo plane over Nic a r agu a, 
which was shot down by 
Sandinista troops on Sunday, 
killing two of three Americans 
aboard. 

Senator David Durenber- 
ger. chairman of the Senate 


From Christopher Thomas, Washington 

was that he had been told by the Council for World Freedom, 


CIA "flatly” that it bad no 
connection with the 
operation. 

Both Mr Shultz and Mr 
Elliott Abrams, Assistant Sec- 
retary of State for Latin Amer- 
ica, strenuously rejected a 
televised statement, read in 
Managua by Mr. Eugene 
Hasenfos, the sde American 
survivor of the supply plane.

he said was its role in the 
flight “I assume someone in 
the US Government knows 
something about this, and the 


lion for the Contras run from 
a Salvadorean Air Force base 
by CIA employees. 

Mr Abrams said: “The CIA 
is asked to report on events in 


speak up the Central America, and among 


better,” he said. 

The CIA look the unusual 


things they report on to us is 
some of tlus activity. But they 


step of publicly denying any do not direct it directly or 
involvement, under a 1984 indirectly, wink or nod, or 


involvement, under a 1984 
law the agency may share 
intelligence with the Contras 
but must not train, arm, 


indirectly, wink or nod, or 
steer people. It’s illegal. 7 ' 

Despite the denials there 
remains deep suspicion on 


equip, advise or direct their Capitol Hill that the Admin- 
activity. That restraint, how- istration at least knew what 


ever, is about to be lifted 
under a new law — the same 
law that will soon release $100 
million (£70 million) of mili- 
tary and non-military aid to 
the rebels. 

Mr George Shultz, the Sec- 
retary of State, said yesterday 


was going on and sanctioned 
the supply operations. The 
cargo plane was under con- 
tract to people as yet unidenti- 
fied — people who have been 
raising money for the Contras. 

Retired Major-General 
John SingLaub, who runs the 


the biggest of the pro-Contra 
private fund-raising groups in 
America, denied any involve- 
ment. 

“There is a large gro up o f 
unemployed or underem- 
ployed pilots who have air- 
planes, who are vying with 
one another, bidding for the 
flying jobs that exist in Central 
America," be said. “Some of 
them haul fresh vegetables 
from Guatemala to the United 
States. The same airplane that 
last week was hauling canta- 
loupes may be hauling bullets 
next week.” 

Certainly, it is well known 
in Washington that a kind of 
informal brotherhood of Viet- 
nam war veterans exists in 
Central America, mostly en- 
gaged in covertly transporting 
goods to the Contras. 

Mr Hasenfos said be bad 
been hired by a company 
called Corporate Air Services, 
based out of Southern Air 
Transport, an air cargo firm in 
Miami. It was owned by the 
CIA between 1960 and 1973 
and used mostly for work in 
south-east Asia. The CIA sold 
it in 1973 but undoubtedly 
maintained a dose link.

A month before Mr Mikhail 
Gorbachov, the Soviet leader, 
makes a much-heralded state 
visit to India, Delhi today 
reinforces its non-aligned sta- 
tus in welcoming Mr Caspar 
Weinberger, the US Defence 
Secretary. 

It wii] be the first visit to 
India by an American defence 
secretary and signals a distinct 
change of attitude by the 
Government of Mr Rajiv 
Gandhi, the Prime Minister. 

It is 20 years since Ameri- 
can hardware appeared in 
India's defence armoury, the 
refusal of the Untied Slates to 
resupply arms during the war 
with Pakistan having caused 
much bitterness here. But 
American technical superior- 


ity in many fields is encourag- 
ing Mr Gandhi to make a 


mg Mr uanam to rnaxe a 
slight correction to the 
country’s otherwise pro- 
Soviet tilL 

Though much significance 
is being placed on the visit by 
both Washington and Delhi, 
the Indian administration is 
not going out of its way to 
make a huge fuss of Mr 
Weinberger. After meeting 


him tonight Mr Gandhi, who 
is also Defence Minister, is 
leaving tomorrow night for

Mr David Steel, the leader 
of the Libera] Party, yesterday 
made the foreign visitor’s 
ritual pilgrimage to Soweto, 
Johannesburg’s Mack dormi- 
tory township, to see how the 
other four-fifths of the inhab- 
itants of Africa's wealthiest 
city live. 

It was a whistle-stop, 90- 
minute tour, in a convoy of 
cars, with Mr Peter Soal, the 
Progressive Federal Party’s 
(PFP) MP for Johannesburg 
North, and two Mack journal- 
ists as guides. The PFP, the 
official Opposition in the 
House of Assembly, has links 
with the Liberals through 
Libera] International. 

Mr Steel saw a fair cross- 
section of life in Soweto. His 
caravan passed first through 
the up-market Dube district, 
with its bungalows set in 
neatly-kept gardens. Children 
bounced on a trampoline on 
an open patch of ground, and 
a game was in progress on a 
well- watered bowling green. 

Then the convoy swung 
through the poor Meadow- 
lands district No gardens 
here; just grim little brick 
boxes with piles of uncollected 
garbage. 

Mr Steel stopped at the 
Mofolo squatter camp, a hud- 
dle of several hundred corru- 
gated-tin shades where about 
2,500 people have been al- 
lowed to settle over the past 
year or so by Mr Ephraim 
Tshabalala, the mayor of 
Soweto, while they wait for 
more permanent housing. 

Mr Tshabalala has been 
criticized for exploiting the 
squatters’ predicament . by 
exacting rent from them, but 
several of the shack dwellers 
Mr Sted spoke to said they 
were grateful that they bad 
anywhere to live. 

Then it was on to Mzimhlo- 
phe “transit camp", a settle- 
ment of brick huts with no 
internal toilets or water taps, 
where many of the inhabitants 
have been waiting fora decade 
for proper housing. ■ 

Mr Sted said he was im- 
pressed by how “absolutely 
spotless” the hovels were in- 
side, and by the efforts of the 
residents “to make a life out of 
this bdl”. It was unbelievable 
bow a government as wealthy 
as South Africa's could allow 
people to live in such a place. 

Mr Steel, who arrived here 
on Tuesday,, pursues his 
southern African tour over die 
weekend. 


The slums of the Rash- 
idlyeh Palestinian camp, be- 
sieged by the Israelis in two 
invasions, now seem set to 
endure a third encixcleiiient — 
by Shia Muslim Amal militia- 
men supported by Syria. 

The camp, south of the dty 
of Tyre and only 12 miles 
from the Israeli border, was 
the scene of further sniping 
yesterday as Mr Yassir 
Arafat's FLO defenders re- 
fused to hand over their 
weapons to Amal officials. 

just a day after Mr Arafat 
had asserted that he had sent 
further guerrillas to defend the 
Palestinian camps in Lebanon 
“until death", talks between 
the PLO in Rashidiyeh and 
Amal leaders broke down after 
a long dispute over the num- 
ber of weapons m the camp. 

Amal contends — with 
considerable veracity — that 
the Palestinians have hun- 
dreds of automatic rifles there, 
but in the early hours yes- 
terday the PLO offered what 
they raid was their total 
armament: 30 AK47 rifles, 
one rocket-propdled grenade 
and one Dmschke self-loading 
rifle. 

Amal* s representatives 
walked out. Not is there much 
that the Syrian Army officers, 
sent south as ceasefire “ob- 
servers”, can do as yet another 
“camps war” starts in Leba- 
non, this time perilously dose 
to the Israeli frontier. 

The Palestinians receive 
help from the Hezbollah 
“Party of God”, which is itself 
opposed to Amai So the 
makings of another long siege 
are under way in the south. 

For weeks now, Palestinian 
sources in the area have been 
reporting that Mr Arafat has 
sent millions of dollars to the 
Sidon bank accounts of lead- 
ing PLO officials to recapture 


the loyalties of Palestinians 
who might otherwise be 
tempted to align themselves 
with pro-Syrian PLO factions. 


Tire guerrilla presence out- 
side Sidon is steadily increas- 
ing, -to the consternation of the 
Lebanese Sunni population of 
the diy. Bn Helwe and Mieh 
Mich camps on the edge of 
Sidon now contain almost as 
many Palestinian guerrillas as 
they did when the Israelis 
invaded Lebanon in 1982. 

Syrian agents in plain 
dothes were in discussion 
with Palestinian officials in 
Sidon yesterday afternoon, 
while their only officer in 
Tyre, a Major Othm an, waited 
for news of another truce. 

About 8,000 Palestinian 
guerrillas were evacuated 
from Beirut in 1982. Mr Salah 
Khalaf head of the PLO's 
“security” section in Tunis, 
claims that 90 per cent of them 
have returned to Lebanon. 
This is almost certainly un- 
true, but there can be no 
doubting that there has been a 
large influx of PLO guerrillas 
here in the past six months. 

In east Beirut yesterday 
there were further — but 
apparently incorrect — reports 
of the discovery of corpses of 
Christian militiamen who in- 
vaded the Christian sector last 
month in an attempt to depose 
Mr Samir Geagea, the Pbalan- 
gjst leader. 

An account ofa mass grave 
containing 21 dead Christian 
gunmen, all shot in the neck, 
seems to have no foundation, 
although there are further 
reports that eye-witnesses 
have seen bodies weighted 
with concrete being dropped 
into the sea off Jounieh. 

More than 60 of Mr Elie 
Hobeika’s Christian rebels 
have disappeared in east Bei- 
rut At least 21 have been 
found shot dead.

The row could lead to the 
fall of Mr Martens, Belgium’s 
longest serving post-war 
prime minister. The crisis 
came to a head on Thursday 
when Mr Jose Hap pari, the 
sacked mayor of a French- 
speaking region who refuses to 
speak Dutch (or Flemish), was 
involved in a fight in the 
Belgian national Parliament 
in Brussels.

A weekly guide 
to leisure, entertainment 
and the arts 


Y uppy love or the real thing ? 


_ it’s German it 
must be the best - 

that’s t he image, 
but is it the truth? 
In the week before 
the Motor Show 
Bryan Appleyard 
looks under the 

bonnet of a ve ry 
cunning campaign 

A few years ago Audi 
did some market 
research. Tell us, 
they astral tKe 
name ofTmkke 
tjerman car. The answer was 
always Mercedes or Volks- 
wagen. Tell us another, they 
said. Then came BMW. What 
about Audi? the researchers 
asked. Are they German? 
came the response. 

This upset John Meszaros, 
the marketing manager for 
Aud i-V olkswagen. He told his 
advertising agency to come up 
with an Audi campaign which 
said simply and unforgettably: 
“This car is German”. Thus 
was bom the Vorsprung durch 
Technik campaign — known 
by some as the Deutschland 
liber alles manoeuvre. 

The point is that being 
German is unquestionably the 
biggest advantage any 
upmarket motor can have. 
Italian machines may go fast 
and drive well but everybody 
thinks they rust or breakdown. 
The French have something of 
the same feeling combined 
with a certain wilful eccentric- 
ity. The Japanese are all very 
well but the image is strictly 
downmarket. The British, 
meanwhile, have destroyed 
one of the marques which 
really mounted a threat in this 
market — Rover — while the 
Rolls has become far too 
vulgar. Jaguar is fine but, as 
for the rest .... 

No. the feet is that the 
average yuppy cannot afford 
to have anything other than a 
German car (the American- 
owned Opel doesn’t count). 
Even if he does stray towards 
another nationality, be win be 
on the defensive in the cock- 
tail bar. Furthermore he will 
be forced to defend his pur- 
chase against the German car 
marketers — a Toyota may be 
as reliable as a Merc, as nippy 
as a Golf or as aerodynamic as 
an Audi but, deep down, he 
knows he has blundered. 

Creating and sustaining this - 
image has been one of the 
most spectacular marketing 
feats in recent years. Its effect 
is so potent that the names of 
Mercedes, Porsche, Audi and 
BMW are possibly the only 



ones in the world which 
require no further qualifica- 
tion- to evoke yuppy peer 
approval. You cannot just say 
“Ford” in the cocktail bar, you 
have to have Escort Cabriolet 
or, in extreme cases. Granada 
Scorpio 2.8i 4x4. 

. The ancestry of this image 
lies clearly- in the German 
reputation for engineering ex- 
cellence, a reputation that goes 
back at least 100 years. But in 
Britain it was an image always 
allied with a certain coldness 
and with the qualification, 
before the war at least, that 
German cars were good only 
by foreign standards. In those 
days Mercedes were sold in 
Park Lane by. men in white 
coats in competition with 
Rolls, Bentleys and Hispano- 
Suizas. 

After the war German im- 
ports of afl goods were kept 
out until 1953, and when the 
marques did reappear on our 
roads their numbers were 
insignificant. They were 
driven strictly by specialists 
and, in the case of Mercedes, 
the very rich. But in the 1960s 


the British car industry gently 
crumbled. It failed to grasp 
either the mass market or the 
executive market and was in 
no condition to exploit the 
company car explosion that 
occurred from the mid-1970s. 
In addition Jaguar was going 
through its near-fetal quality 
control crisis. - 
This left the multi-nationals 
to mop up the bulk sals and 
the Germans to abscond with 
the whole quality end. The 
way they did this was either a 
masterpiece' of timing or the 
most incredible luck, depend- 
ing on your point of view. The 
key was the driver. 

I n essence, American cars 
are living rooms on 
wheels- They were de- 
signed to drift intermi- 
nably along the four-lane 
biacktops. A British quality 
car had something of the same 
image but was more of a 
clubroora than a Living room 
— varnished mahogany, pun- 
gem leather and a general air 
of excluding the outside 
world. 


The Germans never quite 
understood this. Indeed 
Mercedes was at one stage 
baffled when its British opera- 
tion requested wood on the 
dashboard and even carpets, 
for heaven’s sake. To the 
Germans acarisacarisacar 
— and what do you want 
'carpets fox? 

. There are two points about 
company cars: first, they are 
occupied solely by the driver 
and second, although lots of 
dever rational thinking goes 
into what make is bought, the 
final decision is as foil of 
emotion as any other. In the 
1970s the functional became 
chic and nobody employed 
chauffeurs any more. The 
driver was what counted and 
he wanted a car that showed 
how smart he was about 
machinery. In this context the 
BMW curved dashboard be- 
came the most significant 
styling innovation of the de- 
cade. Instruments were re- 
vealed only to the driver in 
stark contrast to the old 
symmetrical distribution of 
dials across a wooden dash. 


All this also provided a 
powerful marketing response 
to the Japanese approach or 
bolting on dozens of extras. 
The certainty spread that the 
quality of these marques was, 
as it were, concealed — it 
sprang from the deep mys- 
teries of road-holding, direc- 
tional stability and so on. Such 
virtues were intrinsic so even 
the cheapest BMW — the 316 
— had them in abundance. 
The 316 became desirable 
even though the smart critics 
have pointed out that it is little 
more than a well screwed- 
together Cortina. And, of 
course, it looksa bit like every 
other BMW. The smart thing 
among German and now Brit- 
ish 316 buyers is to request a 
car without the numbers on 
the boot — that way the owner 
of a red-hot 3231 can’t be sure 
whal's under your bonnet 

The advertising of all the 
makes now feeds this whole 
complex of hidden virtues. 
Paint jobs, suspension and 
engine build are dribbled into 
the copy in just sufficient 


quantity to provide all the 
“post-purchase rationaliza- 
tions” the yuppy needs in his 
cocktail bar. It is all de- 
liriously ludicrous — as if 
anybody bought a Porsche for 
those reasons. 

T he prizf for the most 
arrogant posture 
goes to BMW — 
“Enough said" was 
the only text on an 
ad showing a detail ofa boot — 
while Audi goes for a degree of 
wit to offset the old suspicion 
of Teutonic coldness. 
Mercedes is all calm superior- 
ity while Porsche goes for 
technology and the sensuous 
gratification of speed. It 
works: the four companies 
continue to increase their 
share of the expanding British 
market. 

All the companies occupy 
large, weirdly clean buildings 
about SO miles from London. 
BMW and Porsche are both 
just off the M4 near Reading 
while Mercedes and Audi- 
Volkswagen face each other 
across a roundabout in Milton 


Keynes. Porsche has the slick- 
est architecture, all grey steel 
and marble. 

“We think the building says 
the same things as our cars” 
says the startlingly urbane 
John Aldington of Porsche. 

“We get instructions from 
Germany that the cars here 
and in our showrooms must 
stand on blade tiles and be 
aligned with them.” says Ray- 
mond Playfoot at BMW’s 
faintly Bauhaus-Iike 
headquarters. 

“It was originally built for 
Vauxhall," says Erik Johnson 
of Mercedes, sadly, at the 
Milton Keynes building. 

“Let me tell you where 
BMW got it wrong ..." says 
John Meszaros at Audi. 


The buildings, like the men 
and like the cars, resemble 
comic-book futuristic alien 
invaders. They know they are 
superior but they know their 
best tactic is to blend in with 
the locals. They have had mild 
worries like the long-awaited 
new Jaguar, launched this 
week, or the possibility of a 
backlash against German styl- 
ing and towards something a 
liule less aggressive. But, by 
and large, they know for the 
moment their powers are al- 
most limitless. Whatever 
monster emerges from Stutt- 
gart or Munich they can 
persuade us that it is beautiful 
and desirable — the only way 
for a car to be. Enough said.

AUDI: Hie upmarket end of 
the Andi-Volkswagen group. 
A latecomer to the colour 
supplement spreads and the 
golf club chatter. Audi did uot 
really attain its modern form 
until the early 1970s with the 
100 and then moved in 
increasingly revolutionary 
styling directions with curving 
bodies and high boots. 

Because of this late arrival 
marketing has concentrated ou 
technological innovation. 
Once this had been drummed 
into thick yuppy heads, Audi's 
ads grew more wittily ar- 
rogant. One slip in the 


Vorsprung durch Tecknik cam- 
paign is now felt to be the 
em p ha si s on families. Audi 
ads have now swung back to 
the lone, urban cruiser. Cars 
are anti-family. 

The car has a less corporate 
feel than the BMW and in feet 
its fleet sales total about 60 
per cent while BMWs are 
nearer 80 per cent Audi also 
feds it is less ostentatious — 
quite a claim when yon look at 
the fHOOO Coupe Quattro 
with its bulging wheel arches, 
four-wheel drive and 137mph 
fop speed, so handy for nego- 
tiating Mill H31 Broadway. 


BMW: Selling 34,00 cars a 
year in Britain, BMW is the 
real leader of the new German 
marketing wave. Its designs 
are. depending ou your indura- 
tion, either dull or understated 
but its appeal is irresistible. 
Part of the secret is insisting 
that every BMW partakes ofa 
single, mystical fountain of 
quality. So, while the £35,000 
M635CSi may be the aspira- 
tion, yon can climb aboard 
with the £8,000 316. Note the 
numbers — none of 'your 
Fiestas, Fiascos or Maestros 
in this market 
Like Audi there is heavy 


emphasis on spe£d, but here 
the speed is meant to be 
effortless without the stick-ou 
bits required by the “hot 
hatchbacks”. It is possible to 
buy a new BMW that looks 
like a high-speed Christinas 
tree, though that would be to 
miss the point 
The serious problem for the 
future is that since the new 
Mercedes style, BMW is now 
regarded as the dullest-look- 
ing German car. The new big 
BMW has just been unveiled 
at the Paris Motor Show but it 
is the smaller 3 series which 
really needs the revamp.

age and its cost. One ad-man 
described its overall image as 
‘‘processional”— yon expect to 
see a couple of police motor- 
cycle outriders every time one 


appears. New styling and the 
smaller — . although not 
cheaper - 190 have kept it 
alive, however, for the know- 
ing yuppy. 

Ho wffl be aware tint 
Mercedes is an all-round car. 
No one aspect of performance 
is stressed. You buy a Merc, 
qnite simply, because it does 
its job well with plenty left to 
spare — none of Audi’s leggy 
women gliders or the 

Porsche machismo. 

The key objection to the 
Merc is a certain — 

but then actually bring the one 
who Y smug Is rather nice. 


PORSCHE: In a way Porsche 
has polled off die most elabo- 
rate marketing feat of them 
aU. For a start nobody nab a 
Porsche — it has massive 
surplus power and barely any 
room inside. Strictly speaking 
it is in die same class as 
superfluous machines like 
Ferraris or Lamborghini^. 

And yet it isn’t Listen to 
somebody doing a spot of post- 
purchase rationalizing on a 
Porsche and he wQl actually be 
stressing its practical qual- 
ities. In fact, of course, there is 
uo practical reason for baying 
Porsche. Analysing this 

>• 


phenomenon one drunken eve- 
ning Porsche’s UK executives 
concluded that, whereas most 
fast sports cars are regarded 
as a man’s mistress, they had 
convinced* people that the 
Porsche was his wife. Never- 
theless, when someone buys a 
Porsche the choice is usually 
between car or swimming posi 
Lately more than a hint of 
vulgarity has crept into die 
Porsche image — mainly since 
they were taken up by estate 
agents. For dm moment, how- 
ever, they remain both exotic 
and German and nobody can 
touch that combination.

Happy la n d ings for the new boat people: tranquil welcome in Pine Island Sound for off-shore pleasure-seekers and, right, a local bird hanging around thejtetty 


WEATHER EYE 


temperature at Tampa in 
October is 84F.1n January 
it drops to 71F. The weatner, 
although mostly fine and - 
sunny, can fluctuate over . 
considerable extremes. In 
winter it rats on avcpge six 
daysambnth-':: 


from Heathrow and you catch 
those magic days between 
January and April, unwaver- 
ing blue skies, and enough 
breeze to puff out an egret’s 
feather. 

Leaving Tampa on ■ the 
Tanfiami Trail south, you 
could picnic on deep fried 
peanuts by the roadside and 
fresh orange juice outside the 
citrus groves — or have a 
Caesar salad with mush- 
rooms, anchovies and crispy 
bacon for under $4, good with 
iced tea. 

Once past Longboat Key, 
you leave the Tamiand Trail 
for the impressive Boca 
Grande Pass, where the tarpon 
run in the spring, providing 
some of the finest big-game 
fishing in the world. 

Here desert life begins in. 
earnest when you abandon the 
can at .sleepy Island Harbour. 
In high spirits at escaping 
from the mainland, the pas- ; 


sengers, tired trendies from 
New York and Connecticut, 
climb aboard a nippy motor 
launch with its gleaming brass 
and dark blue canvas cush- 
ions. 

T he launch swishes 
along the deep blue 
of Pine Island 
Sound, sheltered on 
either side by rich 
dark green mangrove forests, 
with splashes of marsh pink 
blossom. Palm Island is noth- 
ing but 165 acres of natural 
beauty, two miles of beach 
with wavy sea grass and 
petrified sharks teeth. The 
sprinkling of white and cool 
grey tropical cottages stand on 
stilts, each with a liberating 
wooden staircase leading to 
the sea. 

An American V idea of a 
simple- "beach hut”; has 
thickly carpeted floors, good 
reading lights, pictures on the 
walls, wickerwork furniture, 


dishwasher, television, large 
■fridge, telephone and king-*- 
sized bed. Rocking chairs on 
screened verandahs look out 
over palms, pines and 
stretches of reassuringly sim- 
ple beach. 

Your desert island kit warns 
how tough it will be. Foraging 
for food means a call to the 
island delicatessen at the 
Landings, and a delivery in 15 
minutes. The lazy islamfer 
jumps on the little tram, 
gliding by on a sandy track 
and passing each door every 
half hour. The restaurant at 
the water's edge has an un- 
pretentious menu, but the chef 
from Maine does delicious 
scallops with Chablis and 
spring onions. • 

The return - for all this 
hardship — walking, swim- 
ming. cycling, playing golf and 
tennis — is a fizzy feeling of 
wellbeing. American beach- 
combers make a lot of noise 


about how intrepid they, are 
and how they love the simple 
life. But by the second week, 
some had slipped shoes on 
again and their cheery, tanned 
faces kept popping up in other 
haunts along the coast 

Palm Island is the latest 
project of an amiable Ameri- 
can called Garfield Beckstead, 
an international consultant 
who in 1976, then aged 37 and 
just back from Japan, took a 
fishing boat out fin- a day, and 
came ashore at the pretty 
island of Useppa nearby m the 
tranquil waters of Pine Island 
Sound. He was enchanted. 

Useppa, within the fishing 
grounds of Boca Grande, was 
where chic weekends were 
enjoyed by the Vanderbilts, 
the Rockefellers and Shirley 
Temple. But . in 1929 the 
tarpon and the tuna got their 
own back. Those Izaak Wal- 
ton Qub buddies had gone. 


needing different courage to 
face the Wall Street crash, and 
the island was abandoned. 

Beckstead found the place 
desolate, the cactus vines 
sprawling insidiously over the 
daw-footed bathtubs and the 
tiled swimming pools of the 
tall white houses. 


F or the next three 
years, with only ra- 
coons for company, 
he and his Japanese 
wife struggled with 
tangled weeds and decay to 
restore the island to much of 
its 1920s and 30s old-Florida 
graciousness, and now the 
plantation bouses, with ro- 
mantic latticed arches, are 
alive again. A little Vivaldi 
drifts over the pines, the 
silvery sand is raked every 
day, gardeners stagger along 
carrying enormous fig trees to 
decorate a house for the 
weekenders. 


Useppa is an island dub. 
The bouses, individually styl- 
ish, are privately owned, but 
let to discerning travellers. 
There are. of course, other less 
private islands. Just by cross- 
ing the Caloosahatchee River 
you get to Sanibel along 
Periwinkle Way. 

The village of Casa Y Bd 
was discovered by a Victorian 
missionary: the Reverend 
George Barnes, who, when 
driven ashore by storms and 
pirates, decided that' here was 
a realistic Promised Land with 
its wild orchids and giant 
ferns. He built a family house 
on his 23 acres of palm trees 
and beach. Today this is the 
Thistle Inn specialising in 
New Orleans and Creole cook- 
ing. Apartments or 
"efficiencies'* are dotted 
round the pool and restaurant. 

There is a lemon yellow 
hotel in Boca Grande called . 
the Gaspariila Inn which is so 


exclusive, they have oiUynjr 
ccntly been taking guests who J 
have to work fora Ihringiftt- 7 .

*' I would not argue with that. 
Spring does not hurry into 
the walled vineyards of FIxin, 
Aloxe-Corton, and Gevrey- 
Chambeitin. In May the com- 
plicated patchwork of garden- 
sized holdings is bardy misted 
with the green of bursting 
buds. By November the earth 
is showing through again, 
golden brown in the bluer 
mists of autumn. It is now, 
when the harvest is in and the 
great oak casks brim with 
promise, that Burgundy 
parlies. 

Invitations to Les Trois 
Glorieuses, the three-day hash 
held annually on the third 
weekend of November, are 
prized; and like many another 
good party, it is not easily 
crashed. For the opening ban- 
'll quet on Saturday given- by-La 
Confirerie des Chevaliers -du 
Tastevin at their headquarters 
in the Chateau du Clos de 
Vougeot the rig is smoking, 
the costume not the habit, ana 
insignes de I’ordre. If new 
members are admitted for 
their public relations pull 
rather than their knowledge of 
wine, the distinction is blurred 
in the noisy bonhomie of the 
occasion. 

Sunday is the day for seri- 
ous business and the 
centrepiece of the event, 
which is the great public 
auction of fine wines pro- 
duced on the lands of the

TRAVEL NOTES 


I flew British Caledonian (01-668 4222) to Paris - the 
airline's cheapest fare is the 1278 return Superpex — 
and travelled from Paris to Dijon by train. The TGV 
does the journey in 100 minutes and costs from 
£25.60 return. For details contact French Railways, 
179 Piccadiny, London W1V OAB (01-409 1224). 

For a short stay the Hdtsl de la Cloche in central 
Dijon, 14 Place Darcy, 21000, Dijon (80-30 12 32) 
offers comfort and efficiency from £50 a night for a 
double room. 

For a more leisurely visit, Vacances en Campagne, 
Bignor, near PuJ borough, West Sussex RH20 1QD 
(07987 366) has a selection of seif-catering 
accommodation in the area ranging from simple 
apartments to larger houses. The Individual 
Travellers Company (of the same address) offers 
larger-scale accommodation through its Chfttsaux en 
Franoe programme. 


Hospices de Beaune. It used to 
be held in the Hotel Dieu, the 
magnificently tiled hospital 
and house of the poor built 
midway through the 15th 
century by a wealthy chan- 
cellor to the Dukes of Bur- 
gundy. John the Fearless and 
Philip the Good. 

Now the television cameras 
set up early in the market 
buirding across the street The 
crowd outside stamps its feet 
and blows steamy breath on 
the windows. As rwo-thirty 
approaches, buyers arrive to 
nil reserved chairs in front of 


the Auctioneers. Fur and cash- 
mere are worn off the shoul- 
der. The cigars smell 
wonderful even through the 
miasma of the season's most 
aggressively promoted scent 
The early lots go for fabu- 
lously inflated sums which 
purchase a moment’s newsreel 
feme before the prices settle 
and the sale drones on into the 
early darkness. 

Monday heralds the longest 
lunch of the year, the pauleede 
Mersault to which the 
winemakers, n£gociants, 
elevateurs and smallholders 


bring the best of their bottles. 
-They arrive carrying bottles in 
their armC bottles in baskets, 
bottles in boxes. There are 
new, cleanly labelled bottles, 
dusty, never labelled bottles, 
and bottles the like of whose 
contents most of us will never 
taste. 

They are there to taste each 
other's efforts, to share, to 
carp, to praise and to cele- 
brate. An enormous Belgian 
sitting next to me scored the 
dozens of wines he sampled in 
points out of ten. He offered 
me everything that won eight 


or more marks on bis system, 
bunch started ai‘ 12 J 0 -and 
ended at seven. It wasa party 
to savour. 

In Dijon Market on Tues- 
day morning the stallholders 
covered their vegetables with 
newspapers against the frost. 
Wild boar, pigeons and pheas- 
ants had arrived to add warm, 
winter colours to the greenery 
of leeks and cabbages. Sum- 
mer fruits had finished and so 
had summer’s visitors. The 
traders assumed one had 
come to buy not to gawp, and 
it was a pleasure, to oblige.

OUT AND ABOUT 



on the Iron Duke 

Nigel Andrew views with awe — and some mirth — the ornate 


interior of the Duke of Wellington’s Apsley House 


Inner-city riots sue nothing 
new to London. One hundred 
and fifty years ago the mobs 
were on the rampage, their 
aim electoral reform, their 
principal target the Duke of 
Wellington's Apsley House. 
On the night of April 27. 1831 
- two days after the death of 
the Duchess — they smashed 
every window at the from of 
the house. 

After that the Duke had 
bullet-proof iron shutters fit- 
ted. keeping them perma- 
nently closed and never even 
repairing the broken glass. In 
later years, when his die-hard 
opposition to Reform was 
forgotten and be was once 
more the national hero, he was 
often followed home fry an 
admiring throng. He would 
turn, as be arrived ai the gates, 
bow, and point grimly np at 
those iron shutters. 

The splendid railings are the 
only fortification now. Behind 
them stands the golden-brown 
porii coed mansion which was 
once known as “No 1, 
London”, because of its po- 
sition as the first bouse after 
the Knighisbridge toll-gate — a 
“prime site” if ever there was 
one. with fine views over the 
parks and beyond. 

Now it is just pan of (be 
muddle of pompous buildings 
and monuments that mark 
Hyde Park Corner. The roar of 
the traffic is everywhere, but 
one of the first things you 
notice about the house is now 
relatively silent it is. Another 
is that it is very, very grand. 
On show here is not the 
private Wellington, but the 
public man: it is a house 
designed for grand occasions 
and for the display suitable to 
a Duke and a hero. To that 
end. Wellington. had what was 
originally an elegantly simple 
brick house by Robert Adam 
enlarged and much altered. 
His architect. Benjamin Wy- 
att added the big Corinthian 
portico, cased the whole build- 
ing in Bath stone, and com- 
pletely remodelled the 
interior. The result was a final 
bill for £64,000 — which did 
not please the Duke — and a 
house that is certainly impres- 
sive. almost to excess. 

The succession of grand 
ornate interiors can become 
too much of a good thing and 
the visible remains of Adam's 
original scheme are very wel- 
come. The most lavish room 
[4s the huge Waterloo Gallery, 
designed to. show off the 
Duke's collection of paintings, 
and to accommodate foe

Heroic display, the Waterloo Gallery at Apsley House 


Waterloo Banquets, held ev- 
ery June IS from 1830 to 
W ellington's death in 1852. 

The paintings, which bang 
through much of the house, 
came partly from the Spanish 
royal collections - foe gifts of 
a grateful nation after the 
Peninsular Wars — and in- 



clude major works by Velaz- 
quez (perhaps foe most 
famous is his “The Water- 
Seller of Seville”). Murillo and 
Ribera. 

Battle scenes loom large, of 
course, of which foe best 
known is Sir William Allan’s 
big Waterloo canvas, which 
Wellington described as 
“good, very good - not too 
much damned smoke”. Por- 
traits of foe Duke and his 
colleagues are everywhere, 
and there are busts galore. But 
quite foe most extraordinary 
piece of work is foe gigantic, 
wholly absurd nude statue of 
Napoleon, which stands at the 
foot of the stairs. Over 1 1 feet 
talL made in marble by Ca- 
nova. this is one of foe few 


sculptures capable of inducing 
helpless laughter in foe be- 
holder. Even Napoleon wasn't 
pleased with ic he thought it 
was too athletic and foiled to 
’ catch the Emperor's calm 
dignity. It was eventually pro* 
senicd to Wellington by foe 
Prince Regent — presumably 
to cheer him upi 
In scarcely better taste is the 
great Wellington Shield, a 
hugely elaborate affair in siL- 
ver-giit, which cost some 
£15.000 to make (in 1822) and 
was presented to foe Duke by 
the City of London. 

Perhaps most remarkable is 
the astonishing quantity of 
table services with which the 
Duke was presented, in 
commemoration of this or 
that campaign, or as a token of 
esteem. They are in silver and 

S it and fine china from foe 
st factories of Europe, and 
are on an enormous scale — 
not only dozens, or even 
hundreds, of individually 
decorated plates, but immense 
centre-pieces over 20 ft long. 

One impossibly ornate 
assemblage is described as 
“foe single great monument of 
Portuguese neo-classical 
silver”; another is a vast 
complex of Egyptian templet 
modelled in white porcelain. 
Then there are foe huge 
candelabras, and the captured 
French standards, and foe 
vases and foe regalia. 

It is all very grand, and very 
much as it was in the Duke? 
own day — except that the 
shutters have gone, and foe 
windows have been mended.

Many established artists 
owe their initial success to the 
Chelsea Fair and this year the 
Crafts Council is sponsoring 
24 young craftspeople from 
the regions. The London Col- 
lege of Furniture is showing 
students' work for the first

from giving some of Britain's 
best designer/makers an an- 
nual boost. 


A special point to note this 
year is that the fair is in two 
stages to allow more exhib- 
itors to take part The first is 
from October 1 1 to 1 3 and the 
Second from October 15 to 20. 

Among the most striking 
pieces shown doting the first 
stage are the painted wood 
pieces by Brian fllsley on the 
British Crafts Centre stand 
They look like primitive toys, 
but they are much too cynical, 
sometimes cruel, to be 
playthings. 

Wood features strongly in 
the jewellery section, too, 
either in the pieces themselves 
— inlaid bracelets by Peter 
Chatwin and Pamela Martin 
and a necklace of cone-shaped 
links by Leslie Miller — or as 
complements to metal 
jewellery as in the boxes made 
by Mathew Warwick for Clare 
Murray’s charming and amus- 
ing rings.

the potential that he spent two 
years at his own ill-afforded

designers that if they all

have more selling power, 
more ability to undertake 
exhibitions and publicity,

selves known internationally 
in the ri^it places and to 
negotiate with manufacturers 
to take up their work 
commercially. 

The dedication paid off. 
Borland has not only attracted 
some of the top names in 
British furniture - Floris van 
den Broecke. Dinah Casson, 
Fred Baier, Rod Wales, Toby 
Winteringham - but has back- 
ing from the National. West- 
minster Bank, Camden 
Council and a large retail 
chain (shy about giving its 
name because it would be 
swamped with similar 
requests). 

The result is a furnishing 
centre in Camden which is a 
showcase for 67 furniture and 
textile designers, presented in 
a series of room sets at 30 
Bruges Place, Randolph 
Street, London NWi (01-485 
4555). The aim is to attract 


commissions from architects 
and interior designers, but the 
centre will also be open on 
Saturdays to the public to 
show foe sort of furniture for 


which, according to many 
retailers, there is no d emand. 
This, being translated, means 
they are too frightened to 
stock it « 



Creature comfort: Guy Martin's animalistic table, 
in hand-stained ash* £395 at Chelsea, Oct 15-20. 


The Centre is not a shop — if 
you want to order or buy 
similar pieces you will be put 
in touch with a stockist if there 
is one, orwith the craftsman if 
there is not But with such 
starry names and with such a 
high standard of design it wiH 
certainly become a foical point 
for ideas in interiors which are 
innovative and exciting, with- 
out reaching the wilder shores 
of Memphis and Sotass. 

In any other design-con- 
scious country it is the sort of 
enterprise that would be 
receiving government sup- 
port. Fiance has already 
shown what inroads can. be 
on the Italian -furniture 
market with government sub- 
sidies and aggressive market- 
ing. Bill Borland has his eye on 
the United States, “Even a 
tiny percentage of that market 
would build an industry for 
us.” It doesn't seem much to 
ask.

IN THE GARDEN 


Amber and gold for autumnal colour 


Autumn paints best on a wide 
canvas, and this year a slow 
sunlit season has brought out 
the beauty of the great trees of 
town and country landscapes: 
huge glowing beeches with 
low-sweeping branches, am- 
ber-fingered horse chestnuts, 
green-gold willows, ash and 
lime. In this context the 
garden can look dowdy and 
insignificant But a small-scale 
garden can achieve its individ- 
ual drama — brought about 
most economically with 
plants which are also attrac- 
tive at other times of the year. 

The Rowan or mountain 
ash has feathery pinnate 
leaves and creamy blossom in 
spring, and its autumn colour 
(especially in the variety 
Beissneri) runs through the 
whole spectrum of yellows, 
reds, and crimson browns 
offset by dusters of vermilion 
berries. It grows to about right 
metres (about 24 feet) in 10 
years, 12 metres in 20, with a 
mature maximum of 18 me- 
tres under good conditions. 
Two Chinese introductions 
are smaller: Sorbus 
s argent iana will make only 
three to five metres in 20 years 
and only obtain nine metres 
fully mature while VUmorin’s 
rowan, collected at the turn of 
the century by a famous 
French nursery is, if anything, 
more compact 

My favourite among au- 
tumn trees is another native. 



Favourite foliage: the leaves of the field maple farm a briffiant mosaic of colour 


the field maple. Its fbtiape 
opens a soft crumpled green in 
spring, catches life light softly 
through the summer, even- 
tually making a brilliant au- 
tumn mosaic. It is a compact 
and shapely tree, and the best 
mature specimens have re- 
corded 25 metres (about 70 
feet). It will respond to dip- 
ping and. while not entirely in 
favour. I have come to admire 
a friend's trimmed Grid ma- 
ples with hollies in a hand- 
some formal display. 

A mainstay of garden cen- 


tres is the Japanese Acer 
pcdmtnum, dainty and es- 
pecially compact in the forms. 
Senkaki, the coral bark maple 
which turns through yellow to 
soft pink in autumn, or 
Ozakazuki which is more fiery 
in its response. The less said 
the better about the purple 


variety which is dull through 


the year, with none 
exquisite gradual suffusion of 
colour which is so much a 
feature of other maples. AD 
these trees accept a wide range 
of soil conditions and do wefl 


in gardens all over Britain. 

A real beauty among shrubs 
is the Amdanduer with iis 
bronzy early leaves, snowy 
’masses offlowers and red and 
gbldat dose of season but, like 
the smoke tree Cotimts 
coggyria, it is large and looks 
best as a separate feature in 
bigger gardens. Of all die 
many other hardy shrubs, the 
guelder- rose is irresistible, 
desirable in all phases of 
flower, foliage and fruft. - 
Any good moist soil win sait 
Viburnums,, but they dislike 


dry thin soils. There is a small 
garden form known as Vibur- 
numopulus compact umwhkh 
reaches 1 .5 metres and a huger 
one known- as Notcutt’s 
Variety. 

With the revolution in con- 
tainer-grown plants, it is no 
longer necessary to confine the 
planting of trees and shrubs to 
foe autumn. None tire-less, 
October is still a good time to 
choose and plant, in order to 
get them nicely established in 
cool moist weather. Select 
wdl-formed healthy pktots in 
good-sized pots and follow the 
planting advice, making sure 
you have allowed for -the 
mature sire and shape. Unless 
you require instant effect* it is 
usually better to buy a young 
plant, 

' Dig a hole (50 centimetres 
each way or twice the side of 
the pot) and fork tire bottom. 
You can encourage:' good 
growth by -giving the roots a 
bed of. pem and sharp sand in 
equal parts with a handful of 
bonemeal — mixed im with the 
soil. Plant to the cranial soil 
mark on tire trank (for trees, 
first hammer in a support 
stake) and fill the hole back in 
with good ropsofl, treading it 
down fimriy. Water it writ (I 
usually add a dose of liquid 
seaweed) and give further 
morning waterings over tire 
next few weeks ifthe weather 
isdiy.

• Clematis Kate being 
thrashed about in winter 
winds, so tie in new growth. 


• Plant bulbs of early 
single and doable tulips in 
pots for spring flowering 
Indoors. 

• Store sound unmarked 
apples and pears as they ripen 
— beg or purchase moulded 
trays from greengrocers Tor 
best results. 

• Gather np windfall 
fruits. They will be braised 
and won't keep, so slice 
and freeze if yon can't eat 
them now. Scatter some on 
the ground for the fieldfares. 

• Cat back on watering 
honseplants and in most cases 
stop feeding. Many plants 
will benefit from increased 
humidity in centrally- 
heated rooms — stand pots on 
damp gravel. 

• Lift gladiolus conns 
when the leaves die back, 
except in mild southern 
counties where they can over- 
winter in a well-drained 
soil.

Vanilla's very success has led 
to its devaluation. Synthetic 
vanilla flavouring has long 
replaced the real thing in all 
but the finest confections. The

less complex tastes and smdb. 

Although usually classified 
as a sweet spice vanilla is 
occasionally used subtly, and 
with great success in savoury 
dishes. When saucing sweet- 
tasting fish or shellfish the 
scent of vanilla in this vari-

subliminal.

While the fish is cooking, 
finish the sauce. Whisk in the 
softened butter, one piece at a

thick and creamy and this is 
achieved by not overhearing 
the sauce and with adequate 
whisking.

Rotten — in the 
sweetest way 


Beloved by Colette, Turgenev, 
Marcel Proust, the Russian 
Imperial Court, Thomas 
Jefferson et a! the great. 
Idea Yquem is undoubtedly 
most starry of all the 
luscious Sauiernes chateaux. 
Like most people who are 
interested in wine, I can 
vividly recall my first glass of 
this honeyed liquid gold, al- 
though I do not remember the 
vintage. The bright amber- 
gold colour is still as fresh to 
me as its intoxicating crime 
brulie taste. I think it may 
have been the *39. 

Since then, although my 
admiration and craving far 
great Sauiernes has not dimin- 
ished. mv tastebuds are rarely 
on the receiving end of these 
delectable wines. This is 
primarily because sweet wines 
are now foolishly deemed out 

of fashion by sophisticates and 
as such Sauiernes and Barsac 
are rarely seen on either wine 
merchant or restaurant wine 
lists. And even less seen is that 
most useful of sweet wine 
sizes, the half bottle. True, the 
production of the finest Sau- 
icrncs chateaux is uny. 
Y quem for instance only man- 
ages to produce on average 
5,500 cases in a year compared 
to the 20,000 of Lafite. 

Worse still is the thought 
that sweet dessert wines are 
just not treated seriously by 
the wine world. Everyone 
wants to make taste-alikes for 
the great red Bordeaux and 
Burgundy names but there are 
few winemakers, it seems, 
who want to challenge the 
Sauiemais. Generally when 
any sweet wine lovers try to 
order one to round off a meal, 
they are treated like namby- 
pamby eccentrics. Neither has 
Sautemes* reputation been en- 
hanced by the glut of cheap, 
sweet sulphuric white wines 
present on Britain's shop 
shelves, many of which arc 
sold under the Premieres 
Cotes de Bordeaux label. 

The greatest piece of good 
fortune for the Sauiemais, in 
recent years, and one which 
may well pull them out of the 
doldrums is the magnificent 
83 vintage. In the noble rot 
condusive moist autumn cli- 
mate of Barsac and Sauiernes, 
with the imminent winter 
dangers of frost rain or hail, it 
takes nerves of steel to hang 
on until the last possible 
moment to harvest what the 
Sauiemais : hope -will be an 
entirely nobly-rotted crop. 
Botrytis cinerea, or noble rot, 
the ugly sounding and repul- 
sive looking mould that at- 
tacks the rich, sweet Sautemes 
grapes so that they shrivel up 
to produce a natural and 
highly-concentrated juice, 
works slowly and unpredict- 
ably. So important Sautemes 
chateaux have no alternative 
but to send their pickers out 
several times to gather grapes 
suffering from noble rou 
Miraculously everything 
went well in 1983, principally 
due to its long Indian summer 


and most Sauiemais agree that 
it is the greatest Sautemes 
vintage since 1967. itself 
deemed a superb Sautemes 
year. For those who missed 
the few opening offers of '83 
Sautemes. the Wine Society 
(Gunnels Wood Road. 
Stevenage. Hens) has just 
introduced five of them to 
their new autumn list. By far 
the most spectacular of these 
is the glorious 'S3 Chateau 
Gimens. from Barsac. pricev 
at £22.50 a bottle tor £20.33 
from Lay & Wheeler. 6 Culver 
Street West. Colchester. Es- 
sex! but its pale straw gold 
colour ami wonderful waxy, 
multi-layered honeyed style is 
perfection and worth all that 
and more. 

I also much enjoyed the *83 
Chateau Cornet, again a 
Barsac. but this ume available 
at the much more approach- 
able pnee of £10 a bottle from 
the Wine Society and £14.87 
from Lay & Wheeler. Its pale 
colour and dchcaic. fragrant, 
scent and taste of lilies is a 
delight. Lighter still is the *83 
Chateau Doisy-Daene (Wine 
Society £7. Lay & Wheeler 
£4.3! ) a delicious, lime mice 
and honey like mouihfuL 
whose slight sweetness, com- 
pared to the other Sautemes 
EncBMumont 

W E E T 



listed by the Wine Society, will 
please those palates who find 
dessert wines generally too 
much for their tastebuds to 
cope with. 

In general the Baraacs are 
marginally more impressive 
than the Sautemes produced 
in ‘83 but. even so, I liked the 
Fifhot (Wine Society halves 
only at £5.55) whose fall, 
fruity nose and waxy, honeved 
taste would make an excejfent 
winter pudding wine. I was 
also pleastxi with the- *83 
Sigalas-Rabaud whose lem- 
ony-gold colour and soft, 
spicy.-pineapple-Iike palate is, 
likerthe FilhoL going to ma- 
ture :sooner than the Barsacs 
produced in '83. Whilst we all 
wait for this to happen other 
dessert wine devotees will no 
doubt join .me in nipping 
down to Sainsbury's to par- 
take of half bottles of *80 
Chateau Coutet whose soft, 
peachy-pineappley crime 
bailee taste priced at just £3.99 
a bottle should convert every- 
one to the delights of dessert 
wines.

An instinct for the winner 


Armstrong's victory in the 
recent BBL International Tri- 
als came as no surprise to the 
“form'* students. Armstrong, 
Kitby. Forrester and Brock 
. have established their suprem- 
acy by a series of almost 
uninterrupted victories in Na- 
tional. events, much to the 
discomfiture of their London 
rivals. 

When Tony Forresier plays 
in Brighton next summer, it 
wifi be his third appearance 
for Great Britain. Hisdebut at 
Valkenburg in 1980 was rich 
in .promise which has been 
amply fulfilled, especially in 
Salsomaggiore last. year, where 
he and Lodge were outstand- 
ingly the most successful of 
the British pairs. 

Forrester is an adaptable 
player, equally at ease with the 
tortuous complications of the 
limited strong pass as with a 
natural system. Bui where his 
bidding may- excite . con- 
troversy, his card play only 
attracts admiration. Like all 


the truly peat players, he has 
an instinct for what is goi ng on 
at the table.

TELEVISION 


Those with two television sets 
— if not split personalities — 
who last night simultaneously 
watched Living With Schizo- 
phrenia (Channel 4) and the 
clashing Omnibus film, 
Courtney Pine and the New 
Jazz (BBCl) were no doubt a 
little confused. In oik pro- 
gramme a man, outlandish in 
his fancy dress, confessed that 
onoe he had been possessed by 
the personalities of people 
from another time and place. 
Fortunately, his audience, not 
to say his mirror, soon con- 
vinced George Melly that be 
was not the reincarnation of 
the early greats of black 
American jazz. 

Wisely, the director of the 
Omnibus film. Faith 
Isiakpere, mostly let the musk 
speak for itselfr There was no 
commentary, the interview 
dips — occasionally prefaced 
by abrupt titles such as “What 
is Jazz?” — were short and 
pertinent. There were enough 
words, though, to suggest that 
a certain mental displacement 
has long been a feature of 
British jazz, encouraged no 
doubt by the dispute mtb the 
American musicians union 
which prevented their players 
performing in this cmmtry for 
more than 10 years. 

Our new black hope, the 
young saxophonist Courtney 
Pine — articulate and serious 
off-stage, more so on - spoke 
of his pride that blacks have 
evolved such a high art form. 

■ British jazz, ottce championed 
by that skilled old Etonian 
Guardsman trumpeter Hum- 
phrey Lyttelton, can only be 
enriched by an influx of young 
black musidans. 

Living with Schizophrenia 
also avoided analysis and 
definition — we weren't even 
rid of the commonplace mis- 
conception of the disease as 
‘‘split-personality’'. Instead, 
sufferers spoke movingly of. 
their Alness. For some it had 
been the most terrible experi- 
ence, for others something 
very disturbing, but writing. 
One painter was glad he “had 
the imagination to have had a 
schizophrenic illness”. But 
then, some people seem to 
prefer the ordered rhythms of 
life exquisitely mangled in 
their own improvization —

Peeping through future curtains 

Graham Wood 


Two of Paul Theroux’s novels. The 
Mosquito Coast and Dr. Slaughter, 
have just been filmed. He talks to 
to Nicholas Shakespeare aBdut-hs-^. 
latest, to be published next week 


A cormorant from 
Hungexford bridge flaps past 
the window of Paul Theroux’s 
nest on the river — a small, 
modem Oat where he comes 
from his house in Claphara to 
write. In its wake and low in 
the choppy water steams a tug. 
“Nuclear waste”, he su gge sts. 

His voice is soft and honest 
- harmoniously so. Sliding on 
to a sofa, he adds that a 
nuclear war won't happen, it 
will be a nuclear accident 
instead, the result of scruffy 
thinking, shortsightedness and 
greed. “The world has never 
been more divided. There are 
lots of desperate people, fewer 
and fewer possibilities. You 
can never ' imagine a time 
when countries like Peru, 
Pakistan or Paraguay will be 
viable.” 

He then retails a news item 
heard on the World Service 
where his wife works. How, a 
week after West Germany 
announced the possibility of 
measures to curtail immigra- 
tion, a convoy of GOO buses 
containing 27.000 Turks, Ira- 
nians and Iraqis — heading for 
Germany - was stopped in 
Bulgaria. 

“Do you remember a time 
when there were no security 
checks at airports, when peo- 
ple came into the departure 
lounge to say goodbye?” With 
the lazy self-assurance of a 
lizard in the sun rubbing its 
stomach on a rock, he laments 
these days are gone forever. 
The question asked in O- 
Zane, a novel “set in but not 
about the future*', and his first 
major work since Mosquito 
Coast, is not “Will it happen”, 
but “How did things get this 
way, how did it happen to us?” 

O-Zone (Hamish Hamilton, 
£10.95) was inspired by an 
answer Theroux gave the art- 
ist John Bratby in a conversa- 
tion. while he was being 
painted, about the future. “I 
said I didn't think it would be 
a collectivist state so much as 
a wilderness in which most 
people would live hand to 
mouth and the rich would live 
like princes . . . the poor 
would live like dogs. They 
would be dangerous and piti- 
ful and the rich would prob-’ 
ably hunt them for sport.” 

• A journey to China in 1979 * 


had given Theroux one land- 
scape of the future - “no trees, 
people carrying things, very 
smoky and rather ■ glum.” 
Then a fortnight spent on the 
New York underground in the 
company of two aimed police- 
men provided him with an- 
other. “People live on the 
subway, going from station to 
station with their bags, believ- 
ing in a mythology of the lines, 
that every line is unsafe except 
yours. The one going into 
Brooklyn is genuinely dan- 
gerous. The Beast, they call it 
Maps are vandalized, there are 
rats, drug addicts, kids with 
guns.” 

Theroux's vision was com- 


by the Sea ) which included a 
visit to Northern Ireland. “It 
is hard to appreciate the 
strangeness of life in Belfast, 
the enormity of the security 

S blent. The market square 
*d off, every stall checked, 
every car boot opened. 

“The routine of security is 
very interesting, how people 
get used to it, even tike it My 
feeling was: there's going to be 
much more of this in the 
world. It's not creating prob- 
lems. It's creating a new kind 
of living.” 

In a hotel in Enniskillen, 
Theroux had sat in the tele- 
vision lounge and watched 
The Invasion of the Body 
Snatchers.' “Everyone was 
having the living daylights 
scared put of them by this 
totally preposterous film 
about alien germs which enter 
our minds, programmed to 
take over tbe world. Yet in the 
'night outside people were 
cutting the udders off cows, 
blowing up army patrols and 
kneeling to crucifixes — al- 
together weirder and more 
dangerous. That people 
should watch a film about 
alien beings for their 
entertainment was proof they 
could not bear to contemplate 
the spectacle of Ulster.” 

He crooks an elbow above 
his brad, looking for more 
cormorants. Having forsaken 
his Papa Doc shades, he looks 
today through clear lenses. “I 
wanted to write a book about 
tbe future where aliens are not 
tittle green ' men, but actual 




Lizard in the smu Paul Theroux, the barges, and the London flat he uses when he’s writing 


people perceived to be alien by 
citizens of a city. If one did 
contemplate the future, ft 
would be more tike Ulster 
than Venus.” 

The world depicted in O- 
Zone is. one divided between 
the vertical, hi-tech wastes of 
New York, roamed by tax- 
paying Owners on the sniff for 
illegal immigrants, and an 
area of America contaminated 
by nuclear waste — a bucolic 
wilderness inhabited by 
Aliens. “Those pretty places in 
the north of England,” he says, 
returning to his raw material. 
“Mining towns where the pits 
had dosed. They were not 
dark satanic mills. They had 
reverted to being city villages, 
poorer .and prettier with dear 
skies and dust-heaps covered 
in grass. Some had even got 
accustomed to the nudear 
power-stations nearby. One 
villager fold me how pretty ft 
was fit up at night a Christmas 
tree. 

“Being able to accomodate 
that son of thing,” he adds,“is 
rather dangerous.” He likens 
this to the way London has 
altered without anyone 
murmuring. “If you live here 
and you're wide awake, you 


All Hour yesterdays I God’s gift to 


In contrast to Radio 3, no one 
can possibly be unaware of 
radio's otherfortieth birthday. 
Woman’s Hoar has done ft 
with a spash — a Radio Times 
cover mul lead feature days 
ahead of the event plus notice 
on all sides. It was in feet only 
last Tuesday that the anniver- 
sary itself came round. 

But perhaps the most strik- 
ing thing about this protracted 
celebrating is how different in 
character it has been from the 
programme itself. The last 
thing Woman's Hour usually 
does is to blow its own 
trumpet. So it was necessary 
to listen quite a lot in the past 
1 0 days or so to make sure that 
the old familiar sound was still 
there. 

The genuine birthday edi- 
tion was devoted almost en- 
tirely to an absorbing 
discussion-cum-feature in 
which Miss MacGregor spoke 
to three great names in the 
history of Woman's Hour — ■ 
Joan Metcalfe, Olive Shapley 
and Monica Sims - plus Dilly 
Keane of Fascinating .Aida, for 
whom it filled in “the missing 
bits of my education". 

They reminded us of the 
social climate into which the , 
programme took its first ten- 
tative steps in 1946. This was 
a time when lady contributors 
wore hats at the microphone 
and when, in an internal 
memorandum. BBC manage- 
ment could congratulate itself 
on not exercising its right of 
censorship, while still feeling 
that an item on “the older 
woman” (i.e.. problems of the 
menopause) was both “a 
lowering of broadcasting 
standards” and “acutely 
embarrassing” 

But 'listeners' needs to air 
their marital, emotional, so- 
cial and domestic problems 
were noi to be denied. 


Woman's Hour took off be- 
cause ft met a blazing need, 
one of which tbe upper echo- 
ions of the Corporation and 
society in general were simply 
unaware. It is easy to forget 
that in its early days this well- 
spoken programme was a 
courageous pioneer of the now 
rampant broadcast advice 
business — one in which, 
though less courage is needed 
these days, ft has retained a 
well-earned reputation for 
breadth and level-headedness. 

I have often wondered what 
it is that time and again makes 
me impatient with the review- 
ing to be heard nightly on 
Kaleidoscope. Last Tuesday 
offered a comparison which 
enabled me to nail it down. 
On Radio 3 John Bowen 
opened the new First Night 
scries with a 1 0-minute review 
.of Richard Nelson's Principia 
Scripioriae in which he told us 
what the play was about, 
contrasted its two acts, ex- 
pressed reservations about the 
second, but left his listeners 
with the impression that this, 
though flawed, was a play 
worth some attention- 

On Kaleidoscope an hour 
earlier we had heard Howard 
Schuman giving his account of 
it to Natalie Wheen. They told 
us how complex it was and 
how- stimulating,, but commu- 
nicated no' dear picture of the 
play. After hearing Mr Bowen, 
it struck me that he had 
thought and told us what he 
thought. Ms Wheen and Mr 
Schuman told us much more 
what they had felt, Feeling is 
no substitute for thinking, 
particularly when, in the kind 
of thinking John Bowen gave 
us. the feeling is implicit.

the universe, from the Statue 
of Apollo above the city’s 
rooftops down to the infernal 
regions with their furnaces 
and stygian lake. And, musi- 
cally, not only does ft unfold 
to an accompaniment of the 
operatic repertoire, but also 
features a protagonist who is 
himself a great composer. 

Some of these opportunities 
have been seized by Andrew 
Lloyd Webber and his collabo- 
rators, and projected with 
stunning showmanship in 
Harold Prince's production. 
But their full range has been 
much restricted by the de- 
cision to present the events as, 
above all, a tragic love story. 

That indeed is the main- 
spring of Leroux's plot in 
which the hideously deformed 
Erik, hiding in the catacombs _ 
of the' theatre* conceives a 
desperate passion for the 
young soprano, Christine, 
teaches her to sing like an 
angel, and then spirits her 
away to his lair when an 
aristocratic rival - tbe gallant 
I young Raoul — appears on the 
scene. But Erik is also a 
prankster and much of the 
story's vitality depends on the

Rosie Logan is a 49-year-old 
East Ender who taught herself 
to read with the Beano and the 
Dandy, married an alcoholic 
and went blind as a result of 
domestic violence. Under the 
circumstances, her first play is 
a remarkably cheerful amir. It

managers. 

The musical opens with an 
auction, long after the events, 
showing the aged Raoul snap- 
ping up mementos of us 
youthful romance — rather 
along the tines of Zeffirelli's 
posthumous prelude to 
Traviata. That sets the sombre 
tone of the evening. Then,

through the magic mirror and

This is the biggest mis- 
calculation in Richard 
Stilgoe’s book; from the start it 
reveals the Phantom as a man, 
instead of springing that 
disclosure after a succession of 
seemingly supernatural in- 
cidents, As -a result, -there is 
precious little thrill in hearing 
his disembodied voice or 
witnessing his apparition as 
the Mask of Red Death ax the

Nor do we ever learn how he 
performs bis tricks. Instead of 
revealing them as the work of

is to crash out dischords on his

Stephen Petromo 
The Place 

I t mus t be difficult being a 
New Dancer. No dancing is 
easy, but the practitioners of 
New Dance have a sell-in- 
flicted obligation to do some- 
thing different and nowadays 
there are so many of them that 
finding a suitable difference 
becomes a major operation. 

We owe our knowledge of 
the medium largely w Dance 
Umbrella, the annual festival 
which brings together many 
British performers ana some 
from the United States, 
Europe and occasionally fur- 
ther afield. This year’s season 
runs for the next five weeks.. 

The first imported exhibit is 
Stephen Petromo and Dancers 
at The Place. His first piece, a 
solo railed Number J, has an 
unusual though not unprece- 
dented twist m that he keeps 
his right foot firmly rooted to 
one spot throughout while the 
left slides no more than a few 
inches to allow him to change 
the direction in which be 
feces. For about eight minutes 
he maintains this stance while 
his arms, shoulders, and head 
bob about One spectator lik- 
ened it to a chicken struggling 
out of an egg. 

But Mr Petromo is quoted 


Cherkassky 
Celebrates 
Wigmore Hall 

At 75, Shura Cherkassky is 
still playing — and with re- 
doubled strength, to judge 
from this birthday recital. He 
has the enthusiasm and energy 
of a man half his age. and he 
can still make you sit up in 
your chair with the un- 
expected nuance, the un- 
conventional approach. 

Indeed, sometimes he 
drives the music so freneti- 
cally that ft all becomes a little 
overpowering. Such threat- 
ened to be the case in 
Beethoven's “Appassionato” 
Sonata, where Cherkassky’s 
unremittingly brittle tone in 
the outer movements, allied to 
speeds that were un- 
compromisingly fast and 
phrases that were often 
dipped, produced aprotracted 
violent explosion of sound. 

But, one afterwards 
thought, that is what this 
music is about; perhaps we 
have become accustomed to 
too much elegance and need to 
be outraged anew like this. 

The same cannot be said, 
however, for even the most 
extrovert, the most dramatic 
music of Chopin. But 




Beauty and the beast: Sarah Brightman (Christine) and Michael Crawford (tbe Phantom) 


Elsewhere, Mr Stilgoe has 
worked wonders of dramatic 
compression: creating the in- 
tensely sinister figure of a 
ballet mistress (Mary Millar) 
who acts as a stone-faced 
messenger between the Phan- 
tom and his victims; and 
reconstructing the disruption 
of a performance by breaking 
. up a balletic entr’acte with the 
descent of a hanged man from 
the flies. 

I suspect, though, that the 
sharp-witted Mr Stilgoe was 
not the man for love lyrics, 
which have been produced in 
saccharin abundance by 
Charles Hart. This may be the 
kind-, of material Lloyd 
Webber warned to set; but as 
both lovers approach Chris- 
tine on similar terms, offering 
comfort, warmth, and protec- 
tion. a monotony sets in well 
before the Phantom -yields to 
the better man and vanishes 
into a piece of trick furniture. 

The book, however, has 
much more importance than 
in Lloyd Webber’s previous 
work; and this time the score 
is not through-composed in a 
continuous idiom. Instead, it 

As though to counter the 
fairy-tale element, the di- 
alogue is unremittingly 
scatological, and the piece 
lurches queasily between 
kitchen-table comedy and the 
theatre of received ideas. One 
never quite discovers the dra- 
matic purpose of all this tea- 
fuelled madness. 

Martin Cropper 
Anarkali 

Cockpit 

Cricket played with billiard 
balls and tennis rackets does 
not necessarily bring a higher 
scoring-rate. Neither are 
multi-media shows in them- 
selves meritorious. 

The purpose of the mixture 
is all and if. as in this latest 
group effort by British Asian 
Theatre, the purpose is seldom 
evident, whether in the choice 


moves between 1 9th century 
opera (discarding Leroux's 
Faust in favour of risible 
pastiche), -atmospheric and 
love music in his own luscious 
vein, and the compositions of 
the ghost himself: The power 
of the score depends much 
more on contrast than on any 
individual item. Romantic 
numbers are poisoned by 
menacingly surging under- 
currents. These turn out only 
to be descending chromatic 
scales on the brass, but they 
serve their turn. 

When ft comes to rebearsing 
tbe ghost’s own opera (another 
Stilgoe innovation) it is great 
fun to discover that the tenor 
lead cannot get the hang of 
whole-tone scales. Elsewhere 
the presence of the super- 
natural is expressively sig- 
nalled by unrelated minor 
chords descending in parallel 
tike the endless trapdoors 
leading down to the theatre 
cellars. 

One thing the production 
should do is to confirm the 
vocal powers of Sarah 
Brightman. a blanched victim 
with huge panic-stricken eyes, 

or the content of scenes, the 
mixture fails. 

Anarkali was a courtesan 
whose life and loves appar- 
ently .caused havoc in the 
Moghul Empire. A sort of 
Pompadour in a veil, I dare 
say. though I should expect 
some basic information 
concerning the Pompadour’s 
doings, and even about those 
of our own Nell Gwynne, in 
any plays bearing their names. 

Still, this Anarkali is ev. 
idently an exemplar, though 
an odd one, you might think, 
in a play about an Asian girl in 
modern London striving to be 
her own mistress. 

She passes her A levels, is 
married to a chartered accoun- 
tant who arrives drunk at the 
wedding bed; she refuses to 
give of her favours, dances, 
goes out with an Englishman 
who also drinks, refuses to 
give her favours again, dis- 
putes the right of lesbian white 
feminists to speak for op- 


who combines a honeyed 
middle register with the un- 
earthly top notes I first thrilled 
to when she sang Charles 
Strouse’s Nightingale. As the 
Phantom Michael Crawford is 
a worthy vocal partner but it 
is a pity that he should have 
such small opportunity to 
display his other skills. Verti- 
cally masked, so as to hammer 
home the idea of a split 
personality, be spends much 
more time on lachrymose 
appeals for sympathy than on 
lotting on with the haunting. 

Not all Mr Prince’s special 
effects draw the intended gasp. 
The fetal chandelier that en- 
gulfs the opera audience now 
makes its ascent to the ceiling 
and is slowly lowered so as to 
-avoid the smallest danger. 
Elsewhere, however, masterly 
advantage is taken of Maria 
Bjomson's sumptuous set, 
which may not evoke the 
whole opera house but gives 
us the Grand Staircase and the 
lake with glowing candelabra 
rising from the water, as the 
Phantom steers his way home. 

Irving Wardle 

pressed Asian women and 
reads a poem (quite well). 

Unfortunately, as played by 
Venu Dbupa. she comes 
across as a thoroughly droopy ! 
sort, never seen sticking up for 
herself, let alone Asian i 
womenfolk till her last, pe- 
culiar outburst 

Songs, translated from the 
Hindi on slides above the 
stage, provide a counterpoint 
of man’s prickly relationship 
with women down the a g^ . 

There is evidence in the 
programme that the play was 
intended to be longer, and the 
early scenes are the better- 
written and the better- 
rehearsed. 

The genuinely talented 
Dhirendra plays several roles 
ranging from a cantankerous 
old uncle to a pubics-ihrusting 
rock singer; it is a mistake to 
give him nothing to do in the 
second half. 


DANCE 


by an American interviewer as 
saying that it i&not important 
to tbe audience to understand 
a work, only to eqjby it, » j 
tried to eqjoy movement that 
rather too soon exhausted its 
compulsiveness. \ 

Number 3 was performed to 
a recording by Lenny Pickett 
called Dance Music jue Borneo 
Homs No 5 which -duL am 
exactly leave me panting to 
know what numbers 1, 2 ,- 3 * 
and 4 sounded tike. Not that 
the movement is very obvi- 
ously related to the music; in 
New Dancing that is consid- 
ered somewhat infra dig. Still, 
the next piece did at least take 
its title from Fat Irwin'S jazzy 
score. The Sixth Heaven. . 

For this, Petromo and five 
other dancers committed 
movements obviously related 
to the contact improvisations 
pioneered by Steve Paxton, 
except that they were randy 
actually in contact - ; 

Petronio's dancers are 
pugnacious in appearance and 
style, and pugnacity was the 
keynote of the final work, 
Walk-In. The movement was 
again foil of stops and starts, 
never really getting anywhere 
and probably not wanting to.

CONCERT 


Cherkassky chose to piay .it 
with that same almost des- 
perate feverishness, -never 
really relaxing where die 
tempo broadened, nor 
succeeding in spinning a true 
amtahile line, save. in the F 
minor Nocturne, Op S5 No ). 
The F minor Ballade, Op:SZ, 
for instance, began strangely 
woodenly, as if Cherkassky 

could hardly bear to submit to 
the music's expressivity. And 
when ft did get fester, detail 
was frequently smudged, ty 
inconsistent pedalling! ... 

His mood was obviously' 
better suited on this occaaon 
to the Chopin of the Grande. 
Vatse Brillante, Op 18* . an 
exuberant miniature, all swirl- 
ing 1 ball-gowns and glittering 
chandeliers, and to the youth- 
fully virtuosic excesses of the 
Variations on La ci darem la 
mono. Op 2. But even in these 
works he pushed the tempo to 
breaking point, and indeed the 
strain very nesriy proved tM- 
much at the end of Op 2. 

It was always going to be a 
flamboyant recital, however,' 
as Busoni's challenging, if 
bizarre, arrangement of Bach’s 
Toccata, Adagio and Fugue in r 
C hinted at the beginning.

The roses may be fading fast,

is threatening to upstage the 
summer. Storting their six-' 
week itinerary on borne 
ground, Glyndebourne Tour-

new light on two of Sir ftter 
Hall's more shadowy summer 
productions. Oxford, Plym-

energetically. “ ~

Two years ago Martin

to make this Don Giovanni a ~ 
celebration of Mozart. It is - 
what the operatic stage so 
badly needs, a Don activated 
from the roots up and from 
the inside out. 

The young cast is haunted 
by a formidable line of prede- 
cessors on this stage, and these 
are. in many respects, still 
embryonic performances. 
Tneir resonance is assured, 
though, by Isepp's musical 
stage-management: watch out ; 
for the emotional and drill-

for long. . . 

Unlike Richard Thompson, 
whose lyrics on Darmg Adven- 
tures sink even deeper into the 
slough of depsond explored on 
bis previous album Across a 
Crowded Room. The targets of 
his wrath are women, both in 
general and in particular, and 
it begins to seem a little odd, 
after hearing about “Valerie” 
(“She spends all my money on 

i 'unk and trash”), “Missie 
low You Let Me Down” and 
“Baby Talk" (“When you 
open your mouth it makes no 
sense 1 *), that it is never 
Thompson or the protagonists 
of his songs who are in any 
way to blame for the wretched 
state of their love lives. But 
this anger and pain fiid many 
superb, incisive songs wrought 
in Thompson's familiar bard 
folk-tinged rock style. There 
are few performers to rival 
him in the art of the Inner 
valedictory ballad; “Long 
Dead Love” with its tomb- 
stone images and fimereal pace, 
places an incan d escent guitar 
solo of rage next to a 

lyric of inconsobUs sadness. 

The mood is lightened by 
sparing use on some tracks of 
accordion, fiddle, mandolin 
and a beguiling drone instru- 
ment, the Chinese shawm, and 
there is an exquisite acoustic.

Phil Alvin, with the aid of 
Sun Ra and his Arkestra and 
the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, 
has assembled an entire album 
in homage to some of the 
more serious performers and 
composers of Al Bowfly's era 
and before. Ussmg Stories is 
dedicated to Joe Turner, the 
man who wrote “Shake, Rattle 
and Rdf, and who was 
perhaps the most celebrated of 
the Thines' blues sboutersL 
Alvin, who mari<» his name as 
the guitarist in the roots R & B 
band The Blasters, is to be 
commended for this affec- 
tionate and 

ing recreation of the early 
country dues and hot jazz 
squads that were the ante- 
cedents of fifties’ rock ’n ’roIL 

The sleazy muted trumpet 
and dated bassoon bass fines of 
the Arkestra work evocative 
magic on ibe Cab Calloway 
compositions “Minnie the 
Mooched and “The OW Man 
of the Mountain”,- while 
Alvin's unaccompanied guitar 
and voice recall such obscure 
original works as Peerie 
Wheatstraw’s “Gangster Blues” 
and Henry Spaulding's 
“Titanic Blues”. The produc- 
tion of this labour of love by 
Alvin and Pat Borneo, success- 
fully captures the warm, loose 
ambient flavour erf recordings 
from that period. Only the 
scratches are missing; 

A lot of people are going to 
be buying their first Iggy Pop 
album in the coming weeks. 
Almost 10 yean since David 
Bowie first rescued him from a 
vicious circle of spiralling 
drug abuse and public indif- 
ference, to produce the album 



The Idiot. 'Bowie has norw 
lifted him from the dead end 
of an ageing cult career and 
placed him at the brink of 
pla tinum success. Blah-Btab- 
Blxh is produced by Bowie 
and David Richards, features 
■five songs co-written with 


Bowie and is in most regards 
simply a surrogate David 
Bowie album. Pop has taken 
to singing in that annoying, 
lugubrious style of Bowie's, 
which sounds like a man not 
quite woken from a deep 
sleep, and heroic lines like 
“Wc have swum in the ocean” 
and “You can be my 
girlfriend / Forever and a 
day” abound in songs like 
“Baby h Can't Fall” and 
“Shades". There is a smooth 
widescreen scope to the 
production with layered syn- 
thesizer and guitar tracks 
washing over a huge-sounding 
snare drum that never the less 
sticks to a fairly insipid beat 


The idiosyncratic kinks and 
more bombastic elements of 
Pop's former delivery have 
been neatly ironed out, and 
while he will surely gain access 
to a wider market with this 
album, it seems a shame to 
have gained another superstar 
at a lime when rock really 
needs to increase, not subtract 
from, its dwindling stock of 
characters. 

For those who have thrilled 
to Robert Cray's contem-

first album Who’s bees 


Talkin’, originally released in 
America in 1980, and unavail-

imaginative and distinctive 
than his subsequent record-

album by any standards, and 
“That's What FU Do” (wntien 
by Cray) and Howlin' Wolfs 
“Who's Been Talkin'”, are 
just two sons that indicate 
the degree of incipient talent 
at work. Curtis Salgado's 
harmonica contributions are 
breathtaking and perhaps 
Cray should think about 
reinstating the instrument on 
future albums.

MRes Davis Tutu (Warner 
Bros 925 490-1) 

Courtney Pine Journey to the 
Urge Within (Island 1LPS 9846) 

More than 70 albums separate 
Tadd Dameron from Joey Dee 
on my shelves; they are by 
Miles Davis, they are fell of 
the beauty and trntu of great 
art. and they come collectively 
behind only the Bible and 
Shakespeare on the list of 
items to be salvaged in time of 
disaster. Whether Tutu be- 
longs among them is the 
question the whole jap world 
is. or ought to be, asking. 

This is the trumpeter’s first 
album away from the CBS 
label in 30 years, and it is 
certainly tempting to see his 

re-emergence wife the full 

panoply of Warner Bros’ pop- 
style promotion as an un- 
usually significant moment in' 
his eventfel and illustrious 
career. 

The point about Tutu is 
surely that this is fee first 
record Miles Davis has made 
in which there appears to be 
no real-time interaction be- 
tween the trumpeter and other 
musicians. Like fee records of 
such current chart heroes as 
Cameo and Art of Noise 
(which from time to time it 
closely resembles). Tutu is 
sample-and-hold .music born 
in laboratory conditions, 
pieced together by means of a 
technology feat encourages 
manipulation of sound and 
effect without limit. What 
Davis does here is doodle his 
spindly muted-horn lines 
against sumptuously textured 
backing tracks whose high- 
closs finish is a tribute to fee 
skill of Marcus Miller, Davis s 
erstwhile bass-guitanst, who 

wrote six of fee eight tunes, 
n laved most of fee in- 
struments and created fee 

arrangements. 

This is music made in vr/ro, 
and it has been rather disturb- 
ing to read, in recent inter- 
views. Davis extolling fee 
virtues of electronic drum 

svnihesizers. Chiefly he seems 
to prize feeir dependability;

Manipulating magic Mites Davis and microchip technology 


appear to be several saxo- 
phone solos dotted through- 
out the record, but there is no 
musician credited on fee 
sleeve and the synthetic na- 
ture of this music is such that 
one is left wife the assumption 
feat this, too, is fee work of 
fee all-powerful synthesizer 
programmers. 

One thing that can certainly 
be said about such tracks as 
“Portia", a shimmering bal- 
lad, and fee prowling “Back- 
yard Ritual” is feat they make 
more convincing Mia mi V ice 
music than anything currently 
in the charts. Such an am- 
bience is, of course qmte 
congruent wife fee Miles Da- 
vis who has been in andoul of 
gossip columns, silk suits and 


Ferraris since Elsenhower was 
president; yet in the end he 
seems oddly like a bystander 
at his own party. 

As one of the year’s major 
talking points, Tutu has a 
strong rival in Journey to the 
Urge Within, fee first album 
by a young saxophonist on 
whose behalf great chums are 
being made, not least that he is 
leading a new gene ra t i on of 
black British jazz musicians. 

As an instrumentalist, 
Courtney Pise is still working 
his way through the texts 
inscribed in wax by Coltrane 
and Rollins. He is by no 
means as rounded or convinc- 
ing an improviser as, say, Iain 
Ballamy or Jamie Talbot, to 
name two near-contemporar- 


ies; nor Is be yet showing signs 
of achieving the sort of 
originality that distinguishes 
such older men as Tony Coe 
and Art Themen. 

So while what is going on 
around him at the moment 
can &iriy be described as 
hype, it is a pleasure to 
discover feat, wife Journey, 
he has made, a remarkably 
successful attempt to justify- 
the acres, of publicity. Pine ^ 
may be attracting new lis- 
teners to jazz through the cut 
ofhis overcoat, but he stands a 
chance to holding on to them 
through his honest projection 
of the .music’s natural 
resources. 

The variety of settings 
shows a keen mind at work, 
from the straightforward 
tenor-and-rhythm hard bop of 
“Seen” through fee covers of 
Horace Silver’s “Peace” and 
Wayne Stoner’s “Delores” to 
a charming pointilliste 
conversation between fee 
leader’s bass clarinet, Cleve- 
land Walkiss’s voice and Gary 
Crosby’s admirable bass on a 
piece called “CGC". Particu- 
larly striking are two pieces, 
“ Miss-In terpret” and “When, 
Where, How and Why”, 
ima ginati vely constructed by 
Pine Ifr the unusual combina- 
tion of trumpet, two saxo- 
phones, voice, vibes, piano, 
bass and drums. 

The fluid grace with which 
Pine’s soprano saxophone 
phrases fee lilting, CDltraneish 
6/8 theme of his own “I 
Believe” indicates his true 
potential I am less sure about 
fee inclusion of a straight- 
forward pop-soul song, the 
Amoo brothers* drably 
predictable “Children of fee 
Ghetto”, wife a vocal by 
Susaye Green, the former 
Supreme. Recorded a month 
later than fee rest of the 
album, and supervised by Roy 
Carter rather than the experi- 
enced American producer Mi- 
chad Cusctma (who brings a 
Blue Note-style depth to fee 
rest of the tracks), h seems to 
have been added as an after- 
thought, as if someone’s nerve 
suddenly broke at the prospect 
of releasing a pure-blooded 
jazz album. Still an appear- 
ance by Pine on Top of the 
Pops would do no harm at alL

The British lost Burma in 
1942 because they had not 
learnt to fight in fee jungle, 
and because they over- 
estimated fee loyalty of the 
local people. They re- 
conquered Burma by master- 
ing fee techniques of jungle 
warfare and by adding a third 
dimension: air supply. The 
Japanese conquered Burma 
initially through military 
prowess, but threw away their 
victory by alienating the 
population. The only people 
to gain anything from the 
four-year struggle were the 
Burmese themselves, but what 
a price they had to pay for 
their independence. 

Louis AUcm's study might 
be looked upon as the re- 
visionist history of fee cam- 
paign for the 1980s. This 
would be going loo far. It is 
less than a history but more 
than a novel. It is perhaps best 
described as an impressionist 
word picture. It is, however, a 
book that most readers will 
find hard to put down once

Story has prompted another 
company, CBS. to try fee 


same “crossover” nick wife 
Sooth Pacific, the 1949

The Emile de Becque part 
was actually conceived by 
Rodgers for an operatic voice; 
Carreras is definitely a tenor ^ — 
but fee conductor of this 
recording, Jonathan Tunick, is 
a deft and experienced hand at 
transposing and adjusting 
orchestrations. And Carreras 
does sing “Some enchanted 
evening” gloriously: sustain- 
ing fee crescendo effortlessly, 
adding a hammy but undeni- 
ably effective sob on “across a 
crowded room”: 

Then there is Sarah 
Vaughan, doing' something 
smokily inimitable, improvi- 
satory and brilliant to “Bali 
WT and “Happy Talk”. The 
LSO plays well, 1 though 
Tunkk's conducting is a little 
dipped and tmexpansiye. 

But when Hammerstrin 
penned the immortal thought 
that there is nothing like a 
dame, I do not think be bad 


dames like Dame Kiri in 
mind. She makes every effort, 
in “Honey Bun” especially, to 
rein in the “operatic” tone, 
but never really derides be- 
tween a Julie Andrews sort of 
plummy crooning, or an un- 
settling and unconvincing at- 
tempt to be raunchy. 

Among the St Louis Sym- 
phony Orchestra's chief assets 
are a super-smooth Mend of 
wind sound; a big, warm string 
tone; and - a. generally up- 
holstered approach to every- 
thing they play. These, and fee 
concern wife absolute pre- 
cision, makes listening to this 
complete Nntcndier record-

able experience, but also a 

tame one. 

The woodwind are never 
allowed to be individual; fee 
“national” dances suffer in 
particular from, this suave, 
characterless approach. 
Rohzdestvensky, Dorati or 
Ansermet are all closer to the 
real Tchaikovsky spirit.

Sum total of a forgotten genius 


D erek Jacobi returns to the 
West End next week to play 
one of the most extraordinary 
Englishmen of this century in 
Breaking the Code. 

Hugh Whiteraoie’s new play is the 
stoiy of Alan Turing, the mathematical 
genius credited with being the father of 
the modem computer whose work, at 
Bleichley Park during the Second World 
War did more than any other to break 
the German Enigma codes. 

Turing's name was almost unknown 
until 1974 when details of the Bletchley 
codebreaking effort became public. By 
that stage he had been dead for 20 years, 
he and his prototype computer, the 
Turing machine, largely forgotten. 

Finally commemorated in 1984 by 
the establishment of the Turing In- 
stitute ai the University of Strathclyde. 
Turing was a flawed character whose 
homosexuality and hatred of conven- 
tion finally hastened his premature 
death. He was the subject of a learned 
biography. The Enigma of Intelligence. 
by raathematyrian Andrew Hodges in

1983 which was the spur, for 
Whitemore, looking for a character to fit 
Jacobi's particular skills. 

“I am neither mathematician nor 
homosexual - it was all outside my 
range. But having read' the book I just 
had to mate it a play," says Whitemore, 
whose. recent work includes Pack of Lies 
about the Kroger spy case. 

Hodges's biography was heavy on 
mathematical analysis while 
Whitemore wanted to concentrate on 
delving into the darker recesses of 
T uring’s restless personality. But he says 
he found himself writing a long speech 
in the first act devoted to the intricacies 
of mathematical paradox. 

"It's actually very complicated, but to 
Derek's and my amazement the preview 
audiences not only listened — they 
laughed at the paradoxes in it It was a 
wonderfully rewarding thing to hear." 

The play carries an indictment of the 
fear and ignorance of homosexuality in 
'post-war years. Turing was arrested and 
convicted, then made to undergo a year- 
long course ofi^emale hormone injec- 


tions. popularly believed to reduce or 
eradicate the homosexual urge. He 
found he was growing breasts and 
though outwardly appearing to conquer 
his humiliation, committed suicide two 
years later in 1954 in typically unique 


fashion - eating an apple soaked in 
cyanide. His favourite film had been 
Snow White, his favourite sesne the one 


where the Wicked Witch dangled an 
apple in a boiling brew of poison. 

S ays Whitemore: “He was a type 
of Renaissance Man. a theorist, a 
visionary, aqd a practical man 
who could make things with his 
own hands. He had ideas which were 
enormously far-reaching and ambitious 
but he put them into practice." 

Jacobi, whose career is already distin- 
guished. will be making his first West 
End appearance in a new play with 
Breaking The Code. Of Turing he says: 
“He was a man who was outwardly grey 
— but who thought in rainbows."

DIARY 

Simon Barnes 


Tories rule 
out, OK? 


Stolen thunder 


Life and racing is never less than 
cruel When the field in a five- 
horse conditional jockeys selling 
handicap hurdle was reduced 
overnight to two runners last 
Saturday, Leesha Burnham must 
have thought her chances of 
chalking up her first winner as a 
jockey had never been better. Sure 
enough, she managed to pilot her 
mount Kalimpong home in first 


place. But she was then disquali- 
fied and placed last, or at anv rate 


tied and placed last, or at any rate 
second: her horse went right on die 
run-in and die rival Kitty Wren 
was promoted to first place to steal 
whatever tiny piece of glory was 
still going. 


Cashflow 


Fascinating facts: expenditure on 
sponsorship last year totalled 
£167 million. Of that, £150 mil- 
lion went to sponsor sport, though 
the arts are rapidly improving. 
This year, it has been projected, 
sponsorship will go up 14 percent 


• Quote of the week, by Geoffrey 
Boycott on the Yorkshire troubles: 
“The knife was in right from the 
start By the end, so was the fork." 


Bullyproof 


Ian Taylor plays for England in 
what is probably the most dan- 
gerous position in all ball games. 
He is the goalkeeper as England 
battle in the hockey World Cup in 
Willesden. A batsman feeing the 
West Indian fast bowling battery 
has an easier time. The West 
German goalkeeper lost a testicle 
in one match, and Taylor himself 
once received a blow in the box 
that frightened die life out of him. 
His protective equipment is elabo- 
rate in the extreme, and includes a 
chest pad used by the Metropoli- 
tan Police as pan of their riot gear. 
Taylor said: “Some young players 
keep goal with just a bit of foam 
sewn into their shirt Get one in 
the sternum and it's curtains." 


Khan the king 


As the squash season gets under 
full swing, the question again 
arises; is Jahangir Khan the great- 
est sportsman in the world? Does 
anyone in the world dominate his 
sport to the extent that Jahangir 
dominates squash? He has not lost 
a! match since April 1981: he has 
hardly even seemed threatened. 
An extraordinary man. As he says 
ip bis book. Winning Squash: "I 
was the youngest smallest fee- 
blest and sickest of the family 
... 1 had two hernia operations by 
the age of IZ but all that did was 
to strengthen my determination." 
If anyone thinks there is an athlete 
with comparable domination over 
his/her sport write and tell me. 


MacGregor: stumbling block or saviour ? 


R eading Ian MacGregor’s 
book about the miners 
strike, inaccurate as it is 
about certain critical 
events, aroused in me a mixture of 
sadness, irritation and downright 
anger.These feelings were fol- 
lowed by amusement over the 
description of Horatio MacGregor 
single-handedly holding the bridge 
and his derisive opinion of senior 
management 

The truth is that on taking up 
his post be explained that he had 
studied the Board's recent annual 
reports and accounts, the report of 
the Monopolies and Mergers 
Commission on the NCB manage- 
ment and had been briefed by Sir 
Norman Siddall the outgoing 
chairman. He announced that he 
agreed with the analysis of the 
problems feeing the industry and 
the way they were being tackled, 
and that previous policies would 
be continued. Despite what be 
says in the book that was the 
management's position under his 
command until the strike in the 
Yorkshire coalfield in March 
1984. Our intention was to avoid 
confrontation. 

He now says that early in the 
new year it became obvious that 
there would be a strike; that Peter 
Walker, the Energy, Secretary, 
realized it was inevitable after 
MacGregor's appointment. 
Walker is described as content to 
let events take their course. 

But at the very end of that 


Margaret Thatcher’s powers know 
no limit. She and her colleagues 
are responsible for postpone- 
ment of today’s needle match 
between Bournemouth and Gill- 
ingham, lying respectively second 
and third in the Third Division. 
The League was aware of the dates 
for the Tory conference in Bourne- 
mouth when it arranged the 
schedule at the beginning of the 
season; what it did not anticipate 
was that security would have been 
so intensive, with the local 
constabulary putting in bourn and 
hours of overtime, that, come 
Saturday, none would be available 
for duty at Dean Court (Not I 
would have thought that many 
bobbies would be needed to keep 
the crowd in order in sedate, 
balmy, bourgeois Bournemouth, 
though I could be wrong). Club 
secretary Brian Tiler has no hard 
feelings. Had the match been 
played, he says, Mrs T would have 
been invited — "and she would 
have got a good game”.

Ned Smith, former 
NCB head of 
industrial relations, 
challenges his 
boss’s account 
of the events 
leading np to the 
1984 coal strike . 
and the way 
it was handled 


Under the lash 

Time has not mellowed former 
National Hum jockey John 
Franco m be; nor has it convinced 
him that stewards are wonderful 
people after all In his new book, a 
thriller co-written with James 
MacGregor called Evesdropper, he 
has included a memorable portrait 
of a senior steward of the Jockey 
Club: "Gazing at the riding whips 
on display in the window, he was 
reminded of the large fines he had 
imposed at a recent enquiry on 
two young jockeys for excessive 
use of that implement in a 
photofinish at Kempton. As far as 
he was concerned, that son of 
thing was best left to the 
bedroom." Apparently any resem- ! 
blance to any real persons, living i 
or dead, is purely coincidental I 
I'm glad about that 


February Walker told MacGregor 
that confrontation was not wanted 


that confrontation was not warned 
and that in presenting the coalfield 
objectives for the year ahead 
potential flashpoints were to be 
avoided. Coal Board area direc- 
tors were instructed accordingly. - 

The board member responsible 
for advising George Hayes, the 
South Yorkshire area director, 
failed to speak to him in time. Had 
he done so tire proposed closure of 
the Cortonwood pit which precip- 
itated the strike, would have been 
presented on March 1 quite 
differently. As it was. the manner 
of the announcement was in- 
advertent. 

Sir Ian's description of the 
management’s conduct during the 
strike is also misleading. He gives 
the impression that the miners in 
Nottinghamshire, South Derby- 
shire and Leicestershire continued 
to work because they opposed 
Scargill and the NUM's oppo- 
sition to pit closures, and because 
they didn't feel "particularly 
threatened in their own jobs.” The 
feet is that they refused to strike 
because they were denied a na- 
tional ballot In all other respects 
they observed the NUM policies. 


including ' the continued .im- 
plementation of the overtime ban. 

MacGregor does not mention 
that earlier in the strike, on the 
advice of his clandestine outside 
advisers, be wanted to offer the 
working miners in Nottingham- 
shire a 5.2 per cent wage increase 
in order to end their overtime ban. 
He was restrained with the utmost 
difficulty from an act which would 
have brought all the working 
coalfields to a standstill Roy 
Lynk, who had assumed the 
leadership of the Nottinghamshire 
miners, had heard a rumour of this 
and made it dear to me that such 
action would bring the Notts men 
out on strike. 

MacGregor- gives a glowing 
account of his “second front" 
policy of using armoured vehicles 
to bring men into work. But be 
makes no mention of the feet that 
as part of that policy he intended 
to move NCB stocks of coal from 
strikebound pits despile oppo- 
sition from his colleagues and was 
prevented only by major cus- 
tomers, especially the CEGB, who 
refused to be parties to an act that 
could have brought power stations 
to a standstill 

The chapter in the book 
concerning the dispute with 
Nacods, the pit deputies’ union, 
can only be described as fantastic. 
Uke the NUM strike, that pro- 
posed by Nacods was un- 
warranted, but MacGregor’s inter- 
pretation of its motives is 
nonsense. He virtually ignores the 
early negotiation with Nacods in 
October under the auspices of 
Acas, the conciliation and arbitra- 
tion service — talks in which 
McGregor behaved disgracefully 
on occasion, not only to the 
Nacods representatives but to Pat 
Lowry and his Acas staff 


Subsequently MacGregor and 
his clandestine advisers, Tim Bell 
and David Hart, decided that a 
settlement with Nacods should 
not be sought. Their view, given in 
the presence of Jimmy Cowan, my 
deputy Kevan Hunt and myself, 
was that they were part of 
Scargfll's “conspiracy” and should 
be smashed along with the NTJM. 

In describing what then hap- 
pened MacGregor says be ordered 
me. to lake time off to rest That is 
not true. On Friday. October 19, 1 
resigned because I would not be 
party to a Nacods strike -which 
could have been avoided without 
compromising management re- 
sponsibility — and which would 
have brought the entire industry 
loa standstill It was also likely to 
engender support from the other 
trade unions. 

1 came bade on October 22 on 
the instructions of Peter Walker 
and the dear understanding from 
MacGregor and Cowan that their 
policies had been reversed. They 
negotiated a sensible settlement 
with Nacods on October 23, and 
Nacods withdrew its strike threat > 
the following day. 

MacGregor also says we could 
have kept the working coalfields in 
operation by employing manage- 
ment staff to do Nacods jobs and 
training people to replace them. 
But the management association 
had told us formally that they 
would not undertake work done 
by Nacods members and training 
replacements was technically im- 
possible within the time available: 
His attitude to this is perhaps the 
best indication of how little he 
understood the industry he was 
appointed to manage. 

I believe, and I am sure Ian 
MacGregor does also, that a 
negotiated settlement (which 
would have preserved the right to 
manage) on these lines could have 
been obtained in September and 
a gain in October. We could and 
wopld have settled had 
MacGregor not been pressed by 
outside advice. 

Indeed as late as January 1985, 
when the “second front" had 
failed to achieve a mass return to 
work, MacGregor sought to con- 
clude a negotiated settlement. My 
meeting with Peter Heathfield, 
NUM general secretary, on Janu- 
ary 21 was under MacGregor’s 
direction; he was pleased and 
encouraged by the outcome but he 
later thwarted the effort after 
outside advice: He bardy men- 
tions this attempt and I shall 
always ponder how things would 
have turned out had the Board 
policy approved by the chairman 
been allowed to proceed. 


T he general with help from 
Mr Rodney Tyler, has 
written his apologia. He 
won a famous victory 
which destroyed the enemies of 
democracy in the NUM and 
elsewhere and topedoed ScaigUl's 
campaign to overthrow the gov- 
ernment by extra-parliamentary 
methods a kfr to revolution. Had 
he lost, Neil Kinnock would have 
been imperilled as well as Mrs 
Thatcher. There would have been 
no holding the Marxist and far left 
trade union leaders. The reforms 
in - the 1984 Trade Union Act 
would have been drowned. 

MacGregor could not have won 
without the resolute support of 
Mrs Thatcher, about whom at 
moments he is ungracious, though 
he recognizes her crucial part as a 
commander-in-chief who en- 
couraged him to fight in his own 
way. For Peter Walker, bis feelings' 
verge on contempt, regarding him 
as the worst kind of politician 
manoeuvring behind his back and 
forever polishing -his personal 
public relations. 

Successful generals tend to be 
vain and touchy. Sir Ian is not 
quite in the Montgomery or 
Phttou class in the belief that he 
was always right and that ail 
difficulties came from his being 
interfered with or let down by 
those of inferior understanding 
and willpower, but not far off 
He recalls telling Mrs Thatcher 
he would like "a bunch of good 
untidy American cops” available 
because "if someone points out to 
them a law is being broken, then 
they go and do something about 
it." The Prime Minister sharply 
told him this was not America, but 
it was largely Sir Ian's fault for not 
taking the Eddie Shah line of 
pinpointing the ringleaders of the 
violence and illegal picketing and 
getting injunctions against them. 

As in -the Warrington dispute, 
the police would then have had 
court orders against named or- 
ganizers to support effective ac- 
tion. Without court backing the 
police were hampered in a nebu- 
lous world of uncertainty about 
the possibilities of enforcing the 
law, as was shown later by the 
extraordinary reluctance of the 
courts to convict those charged 
with violence. Sir Ian hesitated for 
fear of increasing sympathy for the 
strikers among the non-striking 
miners: this judgement, in my 
view, was wrong. 

What did happen was that Leon 
Brixtan, the Home Secretary, co- 
ordinated police action through- 
out the country. He had no power 
to do so and it was the first time 
the UK had acquired something

as an impending collapse of the 
NCB. thus discouraging many 
miners then building up then- - 
courage to go back to work. For 
floating the debilitating idea that . 
peace talks without victory were iar 1 
process Sir Ian blames Peter 
Walker, who had lost his nerve 


like a centrally run national police 
force. Without Brittan’s intelligent 
and adventurous sub rosa activ- 
ities the thousands of illegal 
pickets moving from area to area 
would probably have triumphed, 
particularly as some local Labour- 
controlled police authorities were 
trying to sabotage their own 
forces. Sir Ian. unusually, gives 
some credit to-Brittan. 

As chairman of the NCB Sir 
Ian's remit was to modernize and 
make profitable the coal industry 
after his success with British Steel 
He found from high officials 
downwards a terror of Scargill and 
a desire to continue the cosy 
relations with the NUM which 
had existed since nationalization. 
Uneconomic pits had been dosed, 
but not fest enough; the attempts 
to increase productivity were too 
feeble; the pay settlements outra- 
geously excessive in relation to the 
huge losses. Management, many 
of them former NUM officials, 
and the NUM thought the days of 
milking the taxpayer would and 
should never end. 


I accept from Sir Ian that there 
were few in the management on 
whose whole-hearted loyalties be 
could rely. Those he removed, 
ignored or slighted are still mutter- 
ing that the strike was avoidable; 
that it need not have lasted so 
long; that Sir Ian's handling of the 
dispute was bad. They say that 
because under previous regimes 
they would rapidly have signed 
surrender terms under which the 
remnants of the NCffs rights to 
manage would have been trans- 
ferred to the NUM. 

It is true that the strike might 
have ended earlier but for the 
constant talk of negotiations 
which Scargill was able to present 


lion; he went so nur as to initiate, 
discussions with the TUC without ' 
telling Sir Ian. 4 # 

However there is a valid crifi. _ 
cism of the approach towards 
Nacods, responsible for safely in’ 
the mines and without whose r 
presence mines could not operate. /. 
The leaders of these ■ moderate 
men, in an ill defined area between 
management and miners, were got 
at by Scargill and persuaded their 
members to vote their executive 
authority to start a strike if 
necessary. The members would; 
not have done so but for Sir law - 
making a tactical mistake in 
withdrawing the arrangement by 
which Nacods members were paid' 
at strike-bound pits even if* fc., 
many instances, they did not go 
down or even sign on. 

Not much money was involved; - 
it was foolish to inflame Nacods to 
the point at which it almost went 
on strike and dosed the pits kept . 
going by working miners which 
were so essential to ensure 
ScaigUl's defeat 
Sir Ian is touchy about criticism 
of the victimization of wraths 
miners afterthe strike. When I saw 
him in his flat he was more ttuar- 
mildly irritated with me ' for 
suggesting that management had -• 
let down thousands of thesetoyd 
men by telling them: “You’sfe; 
made your bed. Now lie on/i£*' 
Then he asked me to go with him 
next day to Nottingham and talk 
to the NCB management boafrh 
After listening to our discusstea; . 
in which I produced cases pf 
indifference to the hardships- of 
working miners, he generously ', 
said: “Sir Woodrow is tight* ; 
Much more justice was then draw 
to the working miners. 

. Sir Ian demonstrates in his bod: 
that he is not always easy to get on 
with. Considerable men who. 
achieved great things are often like : 
that. Undoubtedly be saved the.

deserved at least a peerage. 


Patrick Leigh Fermor relives a clandestine romance di 


his 1930s walk from Holland to Turkey 


W e had left our 
horses at a wa T 
ter-mill : where 
the carriages had 
joined than, and 
now all the 
horses were grazing unsaddled and 
unharnessed in a sloping field; a 
fire was alight already and bottles 
were cooling in the mill-stream. 

The most active of the party had 
been a pretty and funny girl in a 
red skirt called Angela. She was a 
few years older than 1 and 
married, but not happily. We had 
caught a glimpse of each other at 
Count Jenfi’s, and danced with 
improvized abandon on the noisy 
evening when Dinah and the 
Gypsy songs had tangled in mid- 
air; and I couldn’t stop dogging her 
footsteps. During the crayfish 
hunt, she leapt about the rocks as 
nimbly as an ibex, hair flying. As it 
turned out, she was just as rash 
and impulsive as I was supposed 
to be. and prompted, I think, by 
amused affection on her side and 
rapt infatuation on mine, a light- 
hearted affinity had sprung up in a 
flash. The feast went on late, and 
abetted by woods and nightfall 
and the remote pan of the forest 
we had wandered to, all barriers 
broke down; and we weren’t sure 
where we were until at last we 
heard our Christian names being 
called, and ran to the assembly 
point where horses were being 
saddled and traces run through. 

During the next two nights and 
days, all unentwined moments 
seemed a waste. By a stroke of 
luck. Angela's family were in 
Budapest, but, for many reasons. 


for the Orthodox and bunches of 
rosaries for Roman Catholics; 
strings of garlic and onions,, 
incendiary green and red spikes of 
paprika, ashen helves, rakes, hay- 
forks, crooks, staves, troughs, 
churns, yokes, flails, carved flutes 
and wooden cutlery like those the 
Gypsies whittled in Istvfin’s court- 
yard. Pots and jugs and large 
pitchers for carrying on the shoul- 
der or the head were assembled by 
the hundred, rows of shoes stood 
alternately at attention and at 
ease, and dusters of canoe-toed 
rawhide moccasins were strung up 
by their thongs. I bought Angela a 
pocket-knife and an orange ker- 
chief for the dust and sbe.gave me 
a yard -or two of red and yellow 
braid for a sash. 



The drinks were beginning to 
work. We left, walking with care 
and suitable stealth, and on air; 
then dived into a hooded carriage 
that would have been a sleigh in 
winter and clip-dopped to a 
discreet Gypsy restaurant outside 


the town, returning to our fine 
vaulted quarters fired with pa- 


4L. 


W e drank tzuica 
out of noggins 
with tall narrow 
necks at trestle 
tables under the 
acacia trees, 
striving to hear each other speak; 
but the animals, the shouting of 
wares, the bargaining, the fiddles, 
the shrill reeds, the tambourine 
and flute of a bear-leader and the 
siege of Gypsy beggars formed so 
solid a barrier that we bawled in 
each other’s ears in vain. Jews in 
black were sprinkled among the 
white tunics and the bright colours 
of the peasants. 

There were Gypsies every- 
where: women like tattered men- 
dicant rainbows; suckling infants, 
though too young for speech, were 
pitilessly grasping tar-babies al- 
ready and the men were wilder- 




vaulted quarters fired with pa- 
prika and glissandoes. 

How exhilarating it was next 
morning to be awakened by foe 
discord of reciprocally schismatic 
bells while foe half-shuttered July 
sunlight scattered stripes across 
foe counterpane! Furred and 
fragged, the magnates on the walls 
of the breakfast room surveyed us 
with their hands serenely crossed 
on the hihs of their scimitars. We 
looked at them in turn and 
admired the many tiers of em- 
blazoned bindings. Heralded by 
fumes, a very old retainer in a 
baize apron brought coffee and 
croissants from a distant part of 
the h ouse ami talked to us as we 
spread and dipped and sipped; 
and his tidings from the night 
before unloosed a long moment of 
gloom: Dolfuss had been assas- 
sinated by the Nazis.

cursed the intervening woods, 
lstvan was an old friend and of 
course he saw at once how things 
were and came to the rescue with 
an irresistible plan: be would 
borrow a motor car from a friend 
beyond Deva and the three of us 
would set out on a secret journey 
to the interior of Transylvania. 

I collected my stuff and made 
my farewells; for after the jaunt, I 
would strike south. The die was 
cast The car arri ved, the two of us 
set off. and in a few miles Angela 
jumped in at the appointed place 
and we drove east rejoicing. 

The borrowed vehicle was an 
old-feshioned, wdl-polished blue 
touring car with room for all three 
in front It had a canvas hood with 
a celluloid window in the back tad 
a scarlet rubber bulb which, after a 
moment's pressure, reluctantly 
sent a raucous moo out of a 
convoluted brass trumpet which 
echoed down the canyons and 
gave warning to all the livestock 
on the road. The car pitched about 
foe ruts and the potholes like a 
boat in a choppy sea and the dust 
of our progress alongside the 
Maros formed a ghostly cylinder. 

The path to the village ahead 
was noisy with farmyard sounds 
and when we had breasted the 
livestock and barrage of dust 
clouds, costumes from a seme of 
villages crowded in. Booths were 
laden with studded leather belts, 
sheepskin jackets, Mouses, ker- 
! chiefs and black and white conical 
fleece hats; there were girths, bits, 
stirrups, harness, knives, sickles, 
scythes and festoons of brass and 
iron sheep-bells bright from the 
forge; also, icons framed in tinsel 


dark as quadroons, with tousled 
beards, matted blue-black locks 
felling to their shoulders and eyes 
like man eaters. Drunks lurched in 
unsteady couples and snored 
under their cans. Towering hay- 
wains were drawn up all round: on 
one a nomadic hen was rashly 
laying an egg. 

Outs tilted their shafts in the air 
in a tangle of diagnosis and 
hundreds of horses of the sturdy 
Transylvanian breed fidgetted and 
whinnied and snorted on the 
outskirts of the village. The place 
might have been a Tartar, camp; 
and beyond the thatched roofs and 
foe leaves, the western mountain- 
mass of the old principality as- 
cended in steps to a jagged skyline: 

Our journey was a secret. The 
town of Kolozsvar wasn't as 
perilous as it would have been in 
foe winter season, with its parties 
and theatres and the opera in full 
blast, but we weren’t supposed to 
be there, Angela least of all. Istvfin 
revelled in the clandestine at- 
mosphere and so did we; it gave a 
stimulating, comic-opera touch to 
our journey; we left the conspicu- 
ous motor outside our quarters 
and stole about the town like 
footpads. Istv&n went ahead and 
peered round comers for fear of 
bumping into acquaintances; and, 
sure enough, he suddenly whis- 
pered, “About turn!” .and shep- 
herded us into an ironmonger’s 
and colourman's shop where, 
backs to the door, we stooped 
intently o ver a select ion of mouse- 
traps until the danger was past. It 
was someone he had been at 
school with in Vienna. 

The old dty was foil of town- 
houses and palaces, most of them

empty now, with their owners 
away for the harvest. Thanks to 
this. lstvan had telephoned and 
borrowed a set of handsome 
vaulted rooms in one of them. 

An hotel at the other end of foe 
main square, called New York, a 
great meeting place in the winter 
season, drew my companions like 
a magnet Istvin said the barman 
had invented an amazing cocktail, 
only surpassed by the one called 
"Hying” in the Vier Jahreszeiien 
bar in Munich, which it would be 
criminal to miss. He stalked in, 
waved the all-dear from the top or 
some steps, and we settled in a 
strategic comer while foe demon- 
barman went mad with his shaker. 
There was nobody dse in the bar; 
- it was getting late and the muffled 
lilt of . foe waltz from Die 
Fledennaus hinted that everyone 
was in foe dining-room. We 
sipped with misgiving and delight 
among a Regency neo-Roman 
decor of cream and ox-blood and 
gilding Corinthian capitals spread 
their acanthus leaves and trophies 
of quivers, and hunting horns, 
lyres and violas were caught up 


with festoons between the pilas- 
ters. Our talk, as we sipped, ran on 
secrecy and disguise. "Perhaps I 

should pretend to have tooth- 
ache." Angela said, after foe 
second cocktail, and wrapped the 
' new kerchief round her head in a 
concealing bandage: “or," holding 
it stretched across her face below 
the eyes, “wear a yashmak. Or 
simply cover the whole thing up,” 
She wrapped her hod in the 
kerchief and tied it in a bow on top 
like a Christmas pudding. 

The man imperturbably set 
down a third round of glasses and 
then vanished just as Angela re- 
emerged. shaking her hair loose, to 
find the drinks there as though by 
magic. I suggested the helmet of 
darkness of Perseus. Istvin 
thought Siegfried’s Tamhelm 
would be better still; then she 
could not only become invisible 
but turn into someone else: King 
Carol Greta Garbo, Mussolini 
and Grouch o Marx were sug- 
gested. then the Prince of Wales or 
Laurel and Hardy; one of the two; 
she would have to choose, but she 
insisted on both. 


A t Segesvdr we put up 
at an inn with gables 
and leaded windows 
in a square lifted high 
above the roofs and 
foe triple cincture of 
foe town wall and dined at a heavy 
oak table in the Gastzimmer. The 
glasses held a cool local wine that 
washed down trout caught that 
afternoon, and every sight and 
sound — the voices, the wine- 
glasses, the stone mugs and the 
furniture shining with the polish 
ofa couple of centuries - brought 
it closer to a Weinstube by the 
Rhine or the Necker. When Istvdn 
retired, Angela and I sat on in the 
great smokey room holding hands, 
deeply aware that it was the last 
night but one of our journey. 

There are times when hours are 
more precious than diamonds. 
The gable-windows upstairs sur- 
veyed a vision of great unreality. 
The moon had triumphed over foe 
mute fireworks to foe east and the 
north and all the dimensions had 
been re-shuffled We leant on the 
sill and when Angela turned her 
head, her fece was bisected fora 
moment, one half silver, foe other 
caught by foe gold glow of 
lamplight indoors. 

Our leisurely mornings and late 
starts — mine and Angela’s fault — 
had set our programme back. The 
subterfuges and stratagems on 
which our journey depended were 
in clanger of breakdown. 

. “To horse!” Istvin said empty- 
ing his glass. We climbed in and 
started off We were soon scorch- 
ing along the road The rain- 
soaked landscape and the flocks of 
clouds rushing across the sky bad 
made us lower the hood 
But no sooner had we struck the 
old highway, beside the Maros 
than fete began to scatter our route 
with troubles. New since our 
passage there two days earlier, an 
untimely road-gang with a steam- 
roller and red flags had roped off 
potholes which had remained 
untouched for years. Maddened 
by frustration,' lstvan foiled them 
at last by cutting a bold semi- 
circular can tie across a stubble 
field Next we were held up by a 


collusion of ateep-walking buf- 
faloes with a gigantic threshing- 
machine crawling along a stretch - 
of road with woods on one side 
and on the other a sharp drop to a 
water-meadow; and finally, a mfle 
or so short of the last station- 
before our destination, there was a 
puncture, the second that day; just 
as we were tightening foe last 
screws on the freshly patched-up 
spare wheel the hoot iff a train- 
reached us from behind Then we 
saw foe femilar smoke-plume 
appearing along foe valley and 
heard the puffing and the clatter, 
and there it was. We leaped into, 
foe car as nimbly as firemen and 
lstvan seized the wheel . 

Swing- wells and fields of maize 
and tobacco shot behind and the - 
dust rose all about us in expanding : 
clouds. The windscreen was anew* 
the old-fashioned kind that divide ' 
lengthways, and when Istvin 
twisted a milled brass knob at the 
side, the lower edge of foe top half 
lifted outwards tmd the wind of 
our pace roared through us. Afl at 
once we were shooting through 
thousands and thousands of sun- 
flowers; then, far ahead,' the’ 
guard's van came in sight. The 
train was slowing up for Simerut / 
foe last halt before our target; and, 
just as it was moving on again we 
drew alongside. '_v 

As it picked up speed, we were . 
neck and neck; foe passengers 
peered out in amazement and we 
felt like Cherokees or Assiniboines 7 
galloping round a prairie train in 
feathers and bisons' horns. Istvin. ' 
was crouched over the wheel; 
shirt-sleeves rolled up, grinning 
fiercely like a cinder-eyed demon 
of speed with ribbed black-mack- 
intosh wings; and as we pulled' 
ahead, he let out a joyful howl; we; 
joined in, and the train hooted as 
though in capitulation. Angela was 
hugging herself, shoulders 
hunched and teeth bared with - 
excitement, hair flying out straight 
in foe slipstream. 

When we reached Deva station, 
foe train was just coming into 
sight again. We seized Angela'S: 
bag and started off over foe tracks. 
The station-master waved for us 
to stop, then, recognizing Istvin. . 
turned it into a salute; and when 
foe train drew up, we were 
serenely waiting for it under the 
acacias, which were as immutable 
a part of a Romanian platform as 
foe three gold rings and the scarlet- 
top of the station-master’s cap. 
Leaning down from her carriage 
window, she threaded crimson 
button-holes into our shirts from 
foe bunch of roses and tiger lilies. 

Our farewells had been made \ 
and I can still feel the dust on her 
anooth cheek. When the flag and - 
the whistle unloosed the train, she 
kept waving, then took off foe' 
Kerchief knotted round her throat 
and flourished that instead and we 
gesticulated frantically back. As H

■ M ,'? Thatcher made much of 
irnstheme yesterday. Here was 
a rousing. speech in praise of 
democratic values. But this 

SSm” 01 been a month » 

gladden any democrat's heart. 

1 o nave only one potential 
“°Vf7? mem prepared to pro- 
^loe the country with credible 
aeience - one party which is 
10 ^I th e sudden risings 
and falls of political fortune 
that are the essence of demoo- 
racv itself - is a matter for 
profound misgiving. Tins 
weeks Conservative Party 
Conference came at the end of 
apoUt ,ca l year that has shown 
the Conservative Government 
to be at different times, incom- 
petent, disunited, and tired 
almost to death. This week 
might easily have added to this 
depressing list the further vices 
of complacency and arrogance. 

That it has not done so, is a 
tribute to the inner tou g hn ess 
of the Tory party. The much- 
publicised new programmes 
by Mrs Thatcher’s ministers 
have gone a long way to restore 
the Government’s mo- 
mentum. Those same min- 
isters have shown a striking 
degree of unity. And the unity 
of Bournemouth can be seen to 
go a long way beneath the 


surface of the Conference 
speeches. 

Mrs Thatcher’s own speech 
yesterday was a vivid version 
of the political case upon 
which she has buih her politi- 
cal reputation and her political 
life. In an_ important . sense, 
however, it was not the 
“crucial” speech that com- 
mentators like such speeches 
to be. 

The most crucial require- 
ment of this week was for the 
senior members ofher Cabinet 
to prove that in the wake of the 
Westland affair — un- 
mentioned at Bournemouth 
but not foigotten - Cabinet 
government was alive and 
well. The enhanced political 
skills of Sir Geoffrey Howe, 
Mr Nigel Lawson and Lord 
Young were palpable. Mrs 
Thatcher did not appear to be 
pulling levers in every Gov- 
ernment department by re- 
mote control from Downing 
Street Thai way success lies. 

Mr Tebbit was the only 
colleague that Mrs Thatcher 
mentioned by name. Mr 
Tebbit* s own speech — in reply 
to the debate on policy mid 
public relationsearlier in the 
day —had been remarkable for 
its care, restraint and gentle 
wit 

He maybe would have hm 
to have uttered the hard-edged 
ideological rhetoric which the 
Conference had heard from 
the leader of the Conservative 
students, Mr John Bercow: be 
contented himself with hoping 
that Mr Bercow would be a 
future Conservative Chan- 
cellor. When the Party Chair- 
man told the assembled 
representatives that they had 
consolidated the ground on die 
right and now had to retake the 
centre ground, it sealed a week 
of peace with his opponents. 

Will the peace stay sealed? 


Some observers yesterday 
were noting the paucity of 
references to Mrs Thatcher 
amongst the speakers in the 
debates and contrasting -this 
with die reliance that Mr 
Tebbit’s advertising men were 
placing on the Prime Minister 
as a televised election winner. 
Had the real presentation de- 
bate — that had so poisoned 
the Tory atmosphere in Au- 
gust — merely been postponed? 

There will no doubt be 
troubles to come. A succesful 
conference creates the right 
atmosphere for electoral suc- 
cess. It does not create success 
itself But the responsibility of 
being currently the only 
responsible government for 
Britain has bought out the best 
in the Conservative Party. The 
recently appointed “manifest 
committee" seems to be the 
successful catalyst over which 
disputes can be settled. 

There are already 
predicatble fears that the elec- 
tion mil not be fought soon 
enough. Those MFs who have 
most to risk from the Alliance 
would like to fight while their 
opponents are weak and while 
Labour can be presented as the 
poll-topping bogey that an 
Alliance vote could put into- 
power. They are worried that 
the Prime Minister might wait 
too long to be ahead of Labour 
in the polls; that a three party 
fight makes conventional de- 
cisions about election timing 
difficult for an often con- 
ventional lady; that an un- 
expected Tory squall (another 
Westland) or an improved 
international climate (post- 
summit euphoria) could bring 
the Alliance forward again. 

Three sentiments domi- 
nated the talk on the Bourne- 
mouth-to-London train: well 
done, what a relief and when? 


MEN OF MODEST PROSPECTS 


When Ronald Reagan and 
Mikhail Gorbachov sit down 
together in Reykjavik today, 
they will be continuing the 
dialogue that began.Ii months 
ago in Geneva. But hejther caif 
afford this time to rest content 
with established rapport 
Which is where the problems 
siarL 

In agreeing to go to Reyk- 
javik, President Reagan has 
made a concession to the finer 
feelings of his. Soviet counter- 
part He has saved him a 
possibly fruitless and therefore 
face-losing visit to Wash- 
ington. He will need to dem- 
onstrate, both to those 
Americans hankering after an 
arms agreement and to those 
fearful of surrendering the 
perceived strength of the 
United States, that his journey 
has been worthwhile. 

A handshake on a future 
agreement on specific arms 
reductions might suffice; so 
might a fixed date for the 
Washington summit Indefi- 
nite postponement of the 
Strategic Defence Initiative 
would be too large a con- 
cession. But less than a hand- 
shake would revive fading 
memories of the inflexible 
president Mr Reagan once. 

seemed ’ 

The Soviet leader, however, 
needs more. He needs to 
convince his generals that he is 
not leaving his country 
defenceless for the sake of 
improved living standards. He 
also needs to convince his 
people that their country is the 
superpower they have been 
iold »t is. despite the 


Chernobyl disaster, the sink- 
ing of the passenger liner in the 
Black Sea and the recent 
submarine loss. 

Probably, as a. result of the 
intensive talks conducted by 
US and Soviet officials since 
June, the two leaders are going 
to Iceland with shopping lists 
which look deceptively simi- 
lar. Their priorities, however, 
are quite different President 
Reagan has placed human 
rights at the top of his list, by 
which he means greater free- 
dom of movement for Soviet 
citizens, including the right to 
emigrate, and closer Soviet 
observance of its obligations 
under international human 
rights agreements. 

For the Soviet side the 
priority is, as it has tradition- 
ally been, arms control; or at 
least, arms control Soviet- 
style. It is a priority which has 
manifested itself in a succes- 
sion of campaigns: against the 
deployment of US medium- 
range nuclear missies in West- 
ern Europe; against President 
Reagan's Strategic Defence 
Initiative, and — most recently 
— against nuclear tests. 

The dash of priorities be- 
tween arms control and hu- 
man rights has. dogged 
relations ever since Helsinki 
But it has also made the policy 
of “linkage" between human 
rights on the one hand and 
progress on trade and arms 
control on the other a work- 
able and effective policy for 
the West 

This is where, unless Presi- 
dent Reagan’s public concern 
for human rights is attenuated 


in private, there is most hope 
for progress. The Soviet side 
has indicated its own, albeit 
too limited, recognition of 
“linkage” by freeing, in ad- 
vance of the summit, the 
Christian poetess Irina 
Ratushinskaya, and allowing a 
number of "refuseniks" to 
leave. In return,- it is no doubt 
hoping for some movement on 
arms control. 

The most likely areas are 
two: reductions in the number 
of strategic warheads held by 
each side and in the number of 
medium-range missiles sta- 
tioned in Europe. The first 
would be no more than the 
partial implementation of an 
undertaking made in principle 
at Geneva last November, it 
would provide a paper agree- 
ment, if that is what the Soviet 
side requires, bat it might not 
be thought enough. 

An accord reducing the 
number of medium-range mis- 
siles deployed in Europe or 
reducing the notional number 
when the Nato deployments 
are complete, is also possible 
as a result of recent negotia- 
tions at Geneva. It coukl offer 
just the agreement Mr 
Gorbachov is looking for. The 
Soviet Union jeopardized its 
whole relationship with the 
United States in protest at the 
deployment of cruise and Per- 
shing three years ago. But can 
he now accept such an agree- 
ment without the indefinite 
postponement of the Strategic 
Defence Initiative he has him- 
self made a condition of any 
agreement? That is what this 
weekend’s meeting will show.

upon Ryedale in their thou-

surely sufficiently mmiliar, 
both from his many years of 
service in the fields and from 
his more recent television

that he could divert foreign 
tourists from the Tower of

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 


Schools under the spotlight 


From Mrs Ida F. Weighell 
Sir, As a former teacher I have 
read the checklist for choosing the 
right school (Spectrum, October 6) 
with interest May I suggest one of 
my own — h is much shorter. Ask: 

1. your local director of education, 

2. the chairman- of your local 
committee of education, 

3. the members of your local 
committee of education, 

4. your local MP. 

5. the head teachers of your local 
first, middle and comprehensive 
schools, 

6. the beads of departments of 
your local colleges of further 
education, 

the simple question, “Which 
schools did/do, your own 
children/grandchUdren attend?". 

There can be no greater act of 
confidence in a particular school 
than in sending erne’s children to 
be educated under its care. 

Yours faithfully, 

IDA F. WF.lfi KF-T.I_,

Leamington Spa, Warwickshire. 
October 6. 

From Dr Howard Tomlinson 
Sir, I am pleased that Aman da 
Alba and Sarah Drummond were 
heartened by what they saw during 
their two years researching in- 
dependent schools. I, for one, 
however, was not heartened by 
their survey. In feet, I found some 
of their remarks offensive and 
inaccurate. 

When I read that boys’ schools 
represented “the English class 
system charging on unchecked", 
girls were “the big answer to 
homosexuality’*, and that Asians 
were perceived as “unsporty and 
lacking in team spirit", I won- 
dered whether the authors were 
serious. 

Public school preoampation 
with class, homosexuality and 
snobbery made good copy in the 
1930s for Worsley’s Flannelled 
Fool, bat they are misleading as 
indicators of independent school 
attitudes in the 1980s. 

Yours faithfully, 

HOWARD TOMLINSON,

October 8. 

From Miss Emma Brook 
Sir, If, as is implied, there is such a 
shortage of inspired teachers in 
public schools, I would suggest 
that dissatisfied public-school pu- 
pils should transfer to comprehen- 
sive schools. All my teachers are 
very good. 

Incidentally, although 1 attend a 
State school, I do not consider 
myself to be sloppy (dome an 
average of four hours' homework 
each night); I am only very slightly 


spotty (presumably caused by the 
ignorance of my parents in food 
matters - note my address): and 
State schools could not hope to 
rival public schools in tire produc- 
tion of “louche" characters, such 
as Burgess and Maclean — but, 
given a little more funding, who 
knows? 

Yours faithfully, 

EMMA BROOK 
(Higbfiekte Comprehensive 
School, Matlock),

October 6. 

From the Headmistress of 
Withington Girls' School 
Sir, Oh dear! The Top Twenty 
Girls' Schools, and only two north 
of Birmingham! I am of course 
delighted to see Bolton School 
(Girls’ Division) included and 

hope it will not appear sour grapes 
if I raise an eyebrow on behalf of 
other humble toilers in northern 
vineyards. 

Yours faithfully, 

MARGARET KENYON, 
Headmistress 
Withington Girls* School, 
Wellington Road, 
fitiiowfield, Manchester. 

October 8. 

From Mr P. M. B. Savage 
Sir, In your “Good Schools 
Guide" today (October 7) the 
authors say. in their section about 
Eton, that “Boys stiff wear the 
traditional bum freezers (tailcoats) 
and stiff collars'*. 

This is not correct. Bumfreezers 
were the very short jackets that 
stopped at the waist which you 
' wore until you were tall enough to 
wear tails. They were also known 
as “Eions" and included the Eton 
collar, worn outside the jacket, 
which reached halfway up the 
neck and halfway across the 
shoulders. 

Yours faithfully. 

PATRICK SAVAGE

October 7. 

From Mrs J. H. Upton 
Sir, I write to protest at the 
annihilation of myself and five 
colleagues. 1 refer to the entry on 
Charterhouse in the Good Schools 
Guide (October 7). 

No female tegehlng staff? We 
are very much alive and to be 
found in the art, geography, 
modern languages and science 
departments. Indeed, Sir, nous 
pensons, done nous sommes. 

Yours faithfully, 

JAY UPTON,

Gash over service 

From the Rev Canon G. Austin 
Sir, The action of the Movement 
for the Ordination of Women in 
encouraging the use . of the most 
sacred ad of worship of the 
Church as a symbolic act of scorn 
and defiance should be treated 
with the contempt which such 
foolishness deserves. Solemn 
archiepiscopal injunctions are not 
the way to deal with a temper 
tantrum. 

The long-term implications are, 
however, more serious. After 
hours of democratic synodical 
debate to decide whether women 
ordained abroad should be al- 
lowed to exercise their priesthood 
in the Church of England, the 
Measure foiled to achieve the 
required majority in the Houses of 
both the clergy and laity (and only 
barely reached it in the House of 
Bishops). 

Supporters of the ordination of 
women took an active part in 
those debates, yet as soon as the 
atiempt to achieve their object by 
legal means foiled, threats were 
made (and now have been ful- 
filled) that they would go ahead 
anyway and encourage illegal acts. 
Such behaviour is an increasingly 
familiar but no less ugly feature of 
modern political life against which 
the Church should offer a better 
example. 

In February the bishops win 
offer suggestions for the legislation 
on women priests which the 
Synod must consider and, if they 
are wise, the proposals will include 
conscientious safeguards for those 
who are in opposition, in order 
that they may remain in the 
Anglican Church. Yet from the 
debate in July at the York Synod, 
(on the McLean report) it was 
dear that there were more than a 
few liberals who thought there 
should be no such provisions. 

Miss Bennett’s action has made 
the bishops' task infinitely more 
difficult. How can opponents now 
believe that safeguards and other 
conscientious provisions in such 
legislation will be honoured^ by 
supporters of women's ordina- 
tion? Will they not seek to rescind 
them as soon as convenient (as 
Sweden did after 25 years and as 
Canada did after only three)? And 


in the wider field, may we know 
what other legislation with which 
we may happen to disagree we can 
safely ignore? 

Yours faithfully, 

GEORGE AUSTIN,

From die Archdeacon of Derby 
Sir, I have received Holy Commu- 
nion at an ecumenical service in 
Derbyshire from a Methodist 
minister who was a woman and in 
the USA from an Anglican priest 
who was a woman. I was invited to 
receive the sacrament at a Roman 
■Catholic Mass in Switzerland and 
did so. As for as I am aware it was 
proper for me to do so and I know 
I am in good (episcopal) com- 

P& Yet it would be improper for me 
to receive Holy Communion from 
a woman priest of the Anglican 
Communion m England! The 
recent celebration m Church 
House, Westminster, raises 
sharply the question how long this 
anomalous position can be main- 
tained. 

Yours faithfully, 

ROBERT DELL,

From die Reverend J. R. Hopcrafi 
Sir, You report (October 6) that a 
letter of apology is to be sent from 
the Church of England to the 
Queen via the Home Secretary 
because a woman priest presided 
at a Communion in a room under 
the Queen’s personal jurisdiction. 

I took a small part in that 
service and wish to dissociate 
myself from any such unnecessary 
and supine apology, which has not 
been asked for. There was nothing 
to apologise about; it was a 
reverent and seemly celebration of 
the Sacrament We were a private 
gathering exercising those re- 
ligious liberties which we expect 
the Queen, the Home Secretary 
and the Archbishop to uphold. 
Yours faithfully.

Turn of the tide 

From the President of the Royal 
I/aiitute of British Architects 
Sir, I have just returned from the 
preview of the Foster Rogers 
Stirling show at the Royal Acad- 
emy.. 

Viewed simply as a brilliant 
piece of visual entertainment the 
exhibition is stunning; but dull 
would he be of soul who could 
emerge without a new sense of the 
resourcefulness, authority and 
magic of this.great contemporary 
architecture. One sees the whole 
world with new eyes and a world 
of new possibilities. 

Although all three have received 
the Royal Gold Medal for 
Architecture, they have untO now 
been more honoured and commis- 
sioned abroad thatriin their own 


country. It has taken the media 
and the establishment a long time 
to appreciate their quality and 
their international sta n d in g. 

I believe this exhibition will 
mark a turning of the tide not only 
for these three but for the wealth of 
gifted architects this country pos- 
sesses and shamefully underuses. 
Now, the Royal Academy has 
given the public a chance to reach 
their own verdict In doing so I 
hope they will give the lie to the 
tired jibes about modern architec- 
ture, most of which in fact apply to 
bad buildings as much as 20 or 30 
years old. 

Yours faithfully,

Sunday threat to 
greyhound racing 

From the Chairman of the British 
Greyhound Racing Board 
Sir. The two racing fraternities 
have always got along well and, as 
an enthusiastic follower of the 
turf, I read your recent articles on 
the call for Sunday horse racing 
(October 2 and 3) with keen 
interest. However, on behalf of an 
industry which in 1985 attracted 
4.8 million spectators - over one 
million more than went horse 
racing - I should like to raise 
some additional points- 
We in the greyhound racing 
industry are not against Sunday 
racing, but there are. in our view, 
higher priorities. If £OU have 
Sunday racing, you will always 
have betting and without a levy on 
betting shops, greyhound racing 
will gain very little. Sunday grey- 
hound raring is already legal in 

New Hampshire. USA. and in 
Spain, but they have a tote 
monopoly and a consequent tax 
built in, some of which returns to 
racing. 

1 don't think that a large 
proportion of the public necessar- 
ily warns any Sunday racing and it 
certainly doesn't appear to need it. 
If attendances kept increasing on 
Saturdays, there could be an 
argument, but they are col 
With an equivalent levy to 
horse racing, greyhound raring 
could provide for more for the 
large following it has: but without 
it. Sunday racing will only spread 
the limited jam even more thinly 
and, of course, evening opening of 
betting shops would ensure the 
dea t h of greyhound racing for 
good. 

What we need is to overhaul the 
whole racing system before it is 
too late, and not just to peck at 
little pans of it. It is large, popular 
and generates a vast sum of 
money. On-course betting for 
horses and greyhounds combined 
in 1985 was £381 million, with 
over half (£192 million) being bet 
on the dogs, while off-course 
betting on greyhounds is about 20 
• per cent of total bets, equalling 
£740 million. 

It is high time that more of that 
money went to help the racing 
industry, in all parts. 

Yours faithfully, 

NEW ALL,

Debate on Ulster 

From Mr John D. Taylor, MPJor 
Strangford (Ulster Unionist) 

Sir, Is it really possible for the 
Tory Party to fail to debate the 
deteriorating situation developing 
in Northern Ireland which is one 
of the major political and constitu- 
tional issues which has arisen 
since the last Tory conference and 
which will certainly influence the 
final result and possible nature of 
the Government after the next 
general election? 

I refer, of course; to the Anglo- 
Irish Agreement by which the 
present Tory Prime Minister 
agreed to give a Cabinet minister 
from another country a greater say 
in both the administration of the 
laws and the preparation of new 
laws for pan of the United 
Kingdom than have the elected 
British MPs from that same part 
of the United Kingdom. 

In November, 1985, Mrs 
Thatcher assured us that the 
Anglo-Irish Agreement would be 
the basis of peace and reconcili- 
ation in Ulster. After 10 months 
those who live in Ulster know the 
result on the ground to be the 
opposite. Polarisation, intimida- 
tion at work and in the home, 
violence and terrorism, un- 
employment — these are now the 
fruits of the Anglo-Irish Agree- 
ment. It is time for the British 
Conservative Party — no longer 
accepted as being in support of 
Northern Ireland being in the 
United Kingdom - to assess the 
results. 

Not only do Ulster Unionists 
feel let down by the Conservatives 
but both Ulster Unionists, with 
probably 15 MPs in the next 
Parliament, and Scottish Union- 
ists now selecting 10 candidates to 
oppose Conservative MPs in key 
marginal Scottish seals, will en- 
sure that those who oppose the 
Tory policy of partial Dublin rule 
within the United Kingdom will 
have a major Influence on the 
structure of the next Government 
In this context the Tories will 
suffer unless there is an early effort 
to reverse the damage being 
caused in Ulster today. 

Yours sincerely, 

JOHN D. TAYLOR, 

House of Commons.

Nuclear deterrence 

From Mr R. C. Hope-Jones 
Sir. Is not Sir John Killick being a 
little disingenuous when he tells us 
(October 3) that defence policy for 
the Atlantic has always been the 
result of collective consultation? 
He knows very well that both our 
1962 decision to purchase Polaris 
and our 1 980 derision to replace it 
with Trident were taken without 
any prior consultation with our 
European Nato Allies. 

Had they been consulted, they 
would probably have uiged us to 
spend the money on something 
that actually contributed to their 
security. Our independent nuclear 
deterrent makes no such contribu- 
tion. since we know, and they 
know, and the Russians know that 
it would only be used in response 
to a direct nuclear attack on the 
United Kingdom — if then.

Corporal William Glass, referred 
to in the leading article, was one of 
the garrison stationed on die 
Hslana to prerent any attempt to 
liberate Napoleon from his exile 
on St Helena In 1961 the

POPULATION TAKEN 
OFF TRISTAN DA CU NHA 

TEMPORARY REFUGE FOR 
260 ON BARREN ISLA ND 

RESCUE AS VOLCANO ERUPTS 
STREAM OF GLOWING LAVA 


PROM Ot'R OWN CORRESPONDENT 
CAPE TOWN. Oct. 10 
With the cone of the islmuTs 
hitherto "dead" volcano glowing in 

the sky above them, and erupting 
lava, the whole population of 
Tristan da Cunha has been taken 
aboard the vessel Tristania and 
another small ship for transfer to 
the desolate Nightingale I slan d. IS 
miles away. 

The latest messages report that 
their morale is “Rood” but their 
stay on Nightingale Island will be 
without comfort. There is neither 
shelter nor a permanent supply of 
water there for the 260 men, 
women and children who will be 
crowding it. It is expected, howev- 
er. that the Dutch vessel, Tjisdane, 
which is on the way frum South 
America, will reach there early 
tomorrow, and begin the evacua- 
tion of the islanders to Cape Town. 

. . . Vice-Admiral Copeman, 
Commander-in-Chief South At- 
lantic, reporting a message re- 
ceived by his headquarters from 
Tristan, said that lava was flowing, 
and the whole eastern end of the 
island was “cracking**. Great lumps 
of rock and earth were being forced 
up to a height of 30 ft. or more. 

CAPE TOWN, Oct 10.- 
Mr. P. J. F. Wheeler, the Adminis- 
trator of the island, reported from 
on board the Tristania that “all 
British and South African person- 
nel from the inland are safe and 
welT ... The master of the 
Tristania reported the beginning of 
the evacuation at about nine 
o’clock this morning?- “Now try- 
ing to get longboats offshore and 
going down to pick up whole crowd. 
Hope squeeze whole population on 
both Repetto and Tristania. Volca- 
no pushed up ISO ft of lava. 
Flouring freely and smoking. No 
actual things flying about” 

The islanders* lot, formerly very 
impoverished, has improved since 
a fish -canning scheme suggested by 
the chaplain was launched by the 
Tristan da Cunha Development 
Company 10 years ago. The factory 
has 27 longboats ana many of the 
islanders have small boats of their 
own. The inhabitants live in a 
village cnfWf Edinburgh — m>nv»d 
after a former Duke who visited the 
island in 1867 — in the north-west 
comer of the island ..." 

Dogged Islanders 
The stirring of the volacno on 
Tristan da Cunha threatens a 
monstrous end to a community 
that has Lung on against the odds 
for more than 140 years. The 
settlement lies on a little promon- 
tory under the great basalt shoul- 
der of the mountain in mid-ocean 
nearly 7,000ft. high. It is more than 
a hundred years since the last 
recorded earthquakes, and the 
little lake in the crater supplied the 
islanders with drinking water. 

It was in 1817 that CORPORAL 
CLASS and his family chose to 
stay behind when the British 
garrison were taken off The 
Admiralty had found supplies too 
difficult to justify holding a perma- 
nent station there to com m a nd the 
South Atlantic. GLASS founded a 
‘Finn*’ in which “no member shall 
assume any superiority whatso- 
ever, but all would be considered 
equal in every respect”. The princi- 
ple has been fairly well maintained. 
In 1827 theseven men, two women, 
aid two children were reinforced 
by the arrival of coloured brides 
from St Helena for the five 
bachelors. There were seldom more 
than forty adults for the rest of the 
century, scratching a living from 
potato patches and what the sea 
provided. In the days of sail their 
help in shipwreck was celebrated. 
Some survivors stayed, accounting 
for two Italian surnames among 
the eight on the felwnd- 
Even the loss of most of their 
able-bodied men at sea seventy- 
five years ago did not make the 
people of Tristan give up. The 
world took more of an interest in 
them, friends in Britain sent 
help from time to time. Not until 
the Second World War, when it 
was fniwmiccinnwi by ti* Admiral- 
ty as HMS Atlantic Isle, did it 
come into the modern scheme of 
things. A padre has long been 
provided by the Society for the 
Propagation of the GospeL The 
250 or so islanders now have a 
fishing industry, a doctor, an 
administrator, even their own 
atampc The Tristan da Cunha 
Fund was wound up only this year 
as no longer needed. It is hard that 
disaster should strike now. 


Time and place 

From Mr G. Pellzer Dunn 
Sir. I refer to Ms Sarah 
Houghton's letter (October 7). 

One Sunday, due to the absence 
of our regular umpire, I stood in a - 
local dub cricket match. Whilst 
awaiting the delivery of the next ' 
ball I was musing upon that! 
morning's sermon which had> 
posed the question “Where is! 
heaven?" 

At that moment the ball was! 
delivered and struck the 
batsman's pads, low down right in . 
from of the wicket. The resultant • 
appeal propelled my finger sky- ; 
wards! j

Ordination of women 


Why a bishop should choose 


OBITUARY 

CARDINAL MICHELE PELLEGRINO 
Prelate of the people 


COURT 

CIRCULAR 


BUCKINGHAM PALACE 
October 10: His Excellency 
Monsieur Jacques Viot and 
Madame Viot were received in 
farewell audience by The Queen 
this morning and lode leave 
upon His Excellency relinquish- < 
ing his appointment as Ambas- 
sador Extraordinary and 
Plenipotentiary from the French 
Republic to the Court of Si i 
James's. 

His Excellency Monsieur 
Assiongbon Agbenou was re- ' 
reived m audience by The 
Queen and presented the Letters I 
of Recall of his predecessor and 


The hardest moment of the 
annual meeting of the Move- 
ment for the Ordination of 
Women at Church House last 
weekend did not come in the 
Eucharist; on the contrary, 
that was a natural, restorative 


price, putting people in that 


of the ideal of universal 
pastor? 

The role-p&ying bishop ex- 
pressed the anguish very well. 
Was he not behind the ordina- 
tion of women all the way? 
Was there really anything else 
he could do. given his position 
and his responsibilities? He 
had indeed done what he 
could, except for the one thing 
which was needed, and that 
was 10 opt for them. 

His difficulty was that to opt 
for the women seeking ordina- 
tion meant leaving behind not 
merely other people ("I am 
pastor to everybody”) but a 
whole set of deeply ingrained 
ideas and perceptions. And he 
would have been accustomed 
to a style of praying which 
subtiv presupposes a unity of 
mind and heart, and a view of 
holiness .excluding tension, 
anger and conflict 

When he was ordained and 
undertook the various obliga- 
tions of ministry there was no 
suggestion that they might at 
some point conflict with one 
another and that he would 
have to choose. So be under- 
took "to have a special care for 
the outcast and needy” and to 
uphold ecclesiastical disci- 
pline; perish the thought that 
they might ever pull in op- 
posite directions- 

Most of the time the "out- 
cast and needy” are far more 
silent about their claim than 
are ecclesiastical authorities, 
and so the choice (and it is a 
choice) goes in that direction 
unno&cecL It is at times such 
as ours, when the cry of a 
suppressed vocation can be 
ignored no longer, that be has 
to choose openly and account- 


position; an instinct that con- 
flict is bound to be a sign of 
sin: and the belief expressed in 
the bishop's function in ser- 
vice after service, that the 
bishop is representative of the 


and healing event, and the, whole Church. 


his own Letters of Credence as 
Ambassador Extraordinary and 
Plenipotentiary from Togo to 
the Court of Si James's. 

His, Excellency was accompa- 
nied by the following members 
of the Embassy who had the 

honour of being presented to 

Her Majesty: Mr Kodzo Senanu 
Noglo (First Counsellor), Mr 
Ouro-Gnao Sebou (Consular 
Attache) and Mr Kilouziba 
Lanwi Lakignan (Financial 
Attache). 

Madame Agbenou had the 
honour of being received by The 
Queen. 

Air Chief Marshal Sir Michael 
Knight had the honour of being 
received by The Queen upon his 
appointment as Air Aide-de- 
Camp to Her Majesty. 

His Excellency Dr Owart 
Suthiwart-Naruepul and Mrs 
Suthiwan-Naruepui were re- 
ceived in farewell audience by 
The Queen and took leave upon 


promise of a better future. 

Hie hardest moment for 
me, the only bishop present, 
came when members staged 
two dramatic "role plays” 
depicting encounters between 
movement delegates and their 
bishop. One- "bishop" was 
portrayed as a most enthusias- 
tic support of women's 
ordination, fulsome in his 
approval of and interest in 
what the group was doing. 

The purpose of the imagi- 
nary encounter, however, was 

to find out what he was doing 
or proposing to do, and he 
became pretty short on con- 
tent It was ail very realistic 
and, for me, uncomfortable. 
The giveaway line fox the 
"bishop” was, "I am pas- 
toral ly responsible for 
everybody*. So be could not 
ally himself clearly and firmly 
with the cause he claimed to 
support, because of the re- 
action of opponents. 

In nearly two years as a 
bishop I have found nothing 
harder to struggle against than 
that debilitating view of pas- 
toral responsibility. There are 


It is a view summed 14 ) in 
the often used phrase “focus of 
unity”, embedded deep in the 
episcopal culture and popular 
expectation. It does not lake 
long to acquire. 

In the Church of England 
that view of pastoral 
universality as the ideal de- 
rives support from a long 
tradition, very explicit in the 
Prayer Book and certainly not 
expunged in recent liturgies, of 
assimilating God, and then all 
authority, to the image of the 
English monarch: that person- 
age whose life, lived above the 
flux of social conflict, is 
conducted in a manna all can 
esteem, and from which none 

need fed alienated. 

During periods of agree- 
ment. such "monarch figures” 
can exercise their universal 
pastorate with relative ease: In 
a fragmented society, and 
especially one which' reaches 
the point where some — 
because they are poor or 
because they are Made — are 
not evea included, the po- 
sition of "the universal 


several &ts to it: a desire to person” becomes immensely 
love, which involves reaching precarious- 


out to people who differ from 
you; the tradition that to be

In relation to many groups 
and individual^ and in 
particular in relation to 
women with the grace and 
calling of priests or bishops in 
them, the Church is such a 
society. So what is to become 


ably, and for that be finds 
himself — I found myself — 
very ill-equipped. 

Thai is not all his fault, and j 
the difficulty is not the 
bishops' alone. They are that ! 
way because that, is the way 
the Church wants them to be: 
if they do not choose maybe 
the Church will also escape j 
without choosing, which all of { 
us would rather do if we 
happened to be .the bench- 
darks of the way zhingsare. j 

Last Saturday the cruel j 
fantasy was exposed: that you 
can be for women's ordination ' 
and for the Church of 
England's present way of do- 
ing tilings. The reality is that 
Anglican women pnests are 
not a future hope but real 
people already live among us, 
and we all have to recognize 
them now or deny them now. 

As for bishops, one thing 
they could do is give up the 
phrase “focus of unity"; bish- 
ops do focus the Church, but 
what they focus is the Church 
as it is. Being a foots of 
disunity is not therefore in 
itself a sign of pastoral failure. 

The components of the 
"universal pastor” view are, 
taken individually as I de- 
scribed them, a rich inher- 
itance of love and concern; 
taken together, they have 
come to form an 
encuznbecance which we, like 
the rich ruler, may sometimes 
be called to dispose of if we are 
to choose for Christ. 


Cardinal Michele 

Pellegrino. Roman Catholic 
archbishop of Turin from 
1965 to 1977, and one of that 
church's most effective expo- 
nents of social reform, .died 
yesterday at the age of 83. 

Pellegrino was bom the son 
of a bricklayer in the village of 
Centalla north-west Italy. He 
was ordained in 1925, and 


earned degrees in theology, 
literature and philosophy. For 
a number of yens he taught at 
tie lay university in Turin, his 
speciality bring the doctrines 
of the Church Fathers. 

He came to prominence 
during the Second Vatican 
Council (1962-65) for his 
frankness as much as for his 
open-mindedness, gaining a 
reputation as "a new kind of 
bishop” for his strong stance 
in favour of theological free- 
dom. 

"If each one knows that he 
is permitted to express his 
opinion with wholesome free- 
dom, he will act with the 
straightforwardness and sin- 
cerity that should shine in the 
Church,” Pellegrino declared. 
“Otherwise, the abominable 
plague of dishonesty and hy- 
pocrisy can hardly be 
avoided.” ■ 

Pope Paul VI appoint^ 
him archbishop of Turin in 
September. 196S, and cardinal 
the following year. At the time 
he was widely considered a 
papa) candidate. 

He went to Oxford in 1967

that Christianity should not be 
compromised with power,

prevailing economic system. 
He encouraged his priests to 
study philosophy, history, bi-

which, he believed, armed 
them well for the modern

During his incumbency in 
the country's industrial heart- 
land, he abided strictly by 
what he felt to be Christian 
social thinking. "The man

Reception 

Faculty of Advocates 
On the occasion of the Faculty 
of Advocates' biennial dinner, a 
reception was given by the Lord 
Advocate. Lord Cameron of 
Loch broom, QG and the Solic- 
itor-General Mr Peter Fraser. 
QC. MP. in the Great Hall at 


France in 1940. In this sensi- 
tive operation his imaginative 
tactics proved highly success- 
ful and - in marked contrast 
to the tragic events at Oran - 
enabled two valuable ships to 
be turned over, almost with- 
out bloodshed, to the Free 
French navy, when that came 
into being. 

From 1955 to 1956 he was 
commanding officer of HMS 
Excellent , the central naval 
gunnery school at Whale Is- 
land. Portsmouth. 

William Francis Henry 
Crawford Rutherford was 
born in 1906. the son of an 
army officer. He went to 
Osborne at 14 and passed 
through there and Dartmouth. 
He specialized in gunnery, 
taking the long 'G* course at 
Whale Island. At the outbreak 
of the Second World War he 
was gunnery officer of the 
battleship Revenge ; then pan 
of the North Atlantic escort 
force, based in Nova Sootia. 

Revenge was in Plymouth in 
June, 1940, when news of the 
French armistice with Germa- 
ny came through, and the 
British government resolved 
to lav its hands on ail French 
warships in British ports, to 
prevent them falling into ene- 
my hands. 

- A fluent French speaker, as 
well as being Revenge’s board- 
ing officer, Rutherford orga- 
nized the disarming of the two 
powerful French naval units 
then at Plymouth: the battle- 
ship Paris, and the 8-incb gun 
submarine Surcouf. then the 
largest in the world. 

To minimise the risk of 
bloodshed, or of the vessels 
being scuttled, Rutherford de- 
rided on the maximum show 
of force, so that French pride 
might be satisfied that resis- 
tance was utterly futile. 

At first light, therefore. 
Revenges forward 15-inch 
guns were trained on Paris at 
pointblank range, the sharp 
hiss of compressed air an- 
-nouncing to all that the 


Rutherford had seen to it 
that each boarder was provid- 
ed with a slip of paper from 
which he could read out 
instructions in French to foe 
crews, to turn out of their 
hammocks and assemble on 
the jetty. With great wisdom, 
realising foal foe French pro- 
nunciation of the average 
Briton might give rise to more 
confusion than it was meant 
to dispel, he had also devised a 
form of phonetics in which an 
intelligible, if not elegant, 
version of the accent could be 
guaranteed. 

In the battleship, the sur- 
prise was almost complete. 
The French admiral still at a 
disadvantage in his dressing 
gown, was persuaded to sur- 
render, despite bis threats to 
blow up his ship. In any case, 
it was too late for that The 
boarding parties had already 
secured main gangways, lad- 
ders and hatches. The only 
casualties occurred when a 
French petty officer produced 
a pistol and shot one of the 
barracks guards on the jetty. 
He was instantly bayouened. 


ment of Cherbourg harbour, 
in October 1940, which, as 
gunnery officer, Rutherford, 
directed. The damage th^t 
caused was doubtless among 
the factors which persuaded--^ 
Hitler to abandon Operation 
Sea Lion. - - : 

Early in 1941 Rutherford • 
joined the battleship King 
George V as assistant fleet ' 
gunnery officer, and took part : 
in the raid on the Lofoten 
Islands as well as being : 
present when KGV and Roo- 
ney administered the coup de . 
grace to Bismarck. Hi subse- 
quently served in the heavy 
cruiser Suffolk in the Far East, - 
commanding her in the final 
stages of the war. 

After a staff post with the 
UK High Commission in 
Australia, and a spell as 
deputy director of plans at the 
Admiralty, he was back on 
active service. In 1952 he took 
command of the light cruiser 
Newcastle, and sailed her to 
the Korean War to relieve her 
sister ship Belfast. 

There he commanded a 
force of fifteen vessels block- ; 
acting Korea's west coast In 
difficult operations among its ; 
chains of islands, which called 
for frequent bombardments 
from Newcastle’s 6-inch guns. 


In thewirfomof ^ “ 

Rutherford's policy of force and awarded Ihe 


was underlined when some of 
the British submarine officers 
of the boarding party attempt- 
ed to reason with French 
counterparts whom they 
knew, and liked, as comrades- 
in-arms. Some of these, how- 
ever, resisted. Shots were 
fired, and two British officers 
were wounded. 

Another area .of resistance 
was Surcouf s galley, where the 
chefs, preparing dejeuner, 
showed a marked reluctance 
to discontinue their task. 
While a party of French 
officers retreated to foe ward- 
room where they intimated 
their intention of drinking foe 
wine rather than have it 
sullied by contact with the 
uncultivated palate of perfide 
Atbiotr. 

Later operations in Revenge 
included the night borabard- 


. DSO. 

Following his term as CO at ; : 
Whale Island he retired from • 
the Navy and joined the' •' 
missile division of A. V. Roe, * 
later Hawker Siddeiey Dy- . . . . 
namics. where he worked as a - . 
member of the team develop- ' 
ing the stand-off bomb, Blue - *• 
Steel. He was a management 
consultant for many years-- i 
after his retiremenL . _• f 

Unlike many gunnery offfi- - , 
cers - by nature a breed both 
seen and heard - Rutherford '-•» 
was quiet and efficient, rather ' 
than a fire-eater. He remained -.V/ 
modest about his achieve*-,, f- 
ments, and it was difficult to v 
prise from him any account of ' , ; 
the services he had rendered. * _r 

He leaves-a widow, Anne, a ' , 
daughter and a son (a founds, ;

| The sale of oak furniture from 
the collection at Cold Overton 
Hall in Leicestershire proved a 
, struggle at Sotheby's yesterday 
1 though there were a few high 
prices. 

The collection was formed by 
Kenneth Binns with the aid of 
I His friend William Stokes, a 
: leading dealer in the field, but 
the selection a< Sotheby's was 
generally of poor quality. The 
sale made £264,352 with 19 per 
cent left unsold. 

Mr Stokes and other dealers 
had expressed worries about the 
authenticity of some pieces and 
Sotheby's had withdrawn a 
number of debatable lou while 
announcing alienations to oth- 
ers. 

Early oak furniture is notori- 
ous for its pitfalls. Some was so 
skilfully faked and altered in the 
nineteenth century that even the 
best experts are baffled. 

The top price was £10.120 
(estimate £7.000 to £10.000) for 
a harlequin set of 1 2 Derbyshire 
oak dining chairs of about'1630. 

They were bought by an 
unnamed private collector who 
made extensive purchases, 
including a fine Charles I 
Gloucestershire panel-back 
armchair of about 1640 at 


£6.380 (estimate £3,000 to 
£5.000) and a seventeen tb-cen- \ 
tury Scottish panel-back arm- 
chair at £4.400 (£3.000 to! 
£4.0001 

Among the more unusual 
items was a walnut bureau chest 
of about 1685. selling for £8.580 
(estimate £5,000 to £8.000). 

Sales of second division Im- 
pressionist and modern paint- 
ings in New York have proved 
remarkably successful over the 
past few days. Sotheby's 
Wednesday sale was only 8 per 
cent unsold while on Thursday 
Christie's made a total of 
£1.224323 wiih only 2 percent 
unsold. 

Most of the top lots in 
Christie's sale went to European 
and Japanese buyers. There was 
a Henri. Martin view of "Le Port 
de Marseilles" at $79,200 (es- 
timate S25.000 to $30.000) -or 
£55.000. 

The weakness of sterling was 
nou however, enough to stir 
exceptional interest in Christie's 
sale of traditional. Continental 
figurative works, totalling 
£547.239. with 14 per cent 
unsold. Steffhno Bruzzi’s “The 
Shepherdess" made the top 
price at £27.500 (estimate 
£3.000 to £5.0001

THE TIMES SATURDAY OCTOBER 1 1 1986 


Public relations 
reveal changing 
face of Russians 


Contnroed from 
to give full and equal demo- 
cratic rights to all workers... 

' - My mind automatically re- 
peated the stock cliches Z bad 
-heard so often in my four 
years m Moscow. Things 
'really did seem to have 
changed. 

The officials went on: “You ' 
may have already heard about 
some of the important 
developments: the publication 
of “pozhar” (the fire), foe 
novel about Rasputin, foe 
publication of Akhmatova's 
pdems — works that raise 
quite painful problems of our 
society — the question of foe 
assassination of Kirov,. foe 
decision to take account of' 
public opinion and stop the 
project to reverse foe rivers in 
Siberia—” I could scarcely 
believe what I was hearing. 

My neighbour, a correspon- 
dent for Associated Press in 
Moscow in foe early 70s, was 
equally dumbfounded. They 
were deliberately touching on 
subjects once so taboo that 
-even Westerners in Moscow 
used to be uncomfortable at 
Betting into an argument with 
Russians on Stalinism, 
Rasputin and the Revolution, 
Jbe persecution of the intellec- 
tuals, foe distortions of Soviet 
history— 

The officials went on about 
the “small revolution in the 
cinematographers 1 union”. 
Yes, I bad read about it, and 
seen the commentaries in the 
west about foe significance of 
the attempt to throw off 
censorship, to chuck out foe 
old party hacks. But here were 
foe top party people actually 
toasting about it all Here 
were Russians themselves ac- 
tually spelling out the political 
dynamite of events that in the 
did days everyone pretended 
were quite routine and did 
nothing to rock the party boat. 

I looked around. Old 
friends and current correspon- 
dents in Moscow seemed quite 
Masfl about it all. It seems this 
is going on in Moscow every 
day now. Indeed, the officials 
were now saying there were 
“changes in foe way of leading 
people, but foe changes have 
not been going on for long 
enough yet." They spoke of 
the “transfer of authority from 
top to bottom,” of the resis- 
tance to reform because of foe 
threat to “some interests and 


privileges,” of decentraliza- 
tion,' new management 
Then they took questions 
not written questions, as it 
used to.be, not planted ques- 
tions from the loyal East Woe 
press, but questions about the 
internal opposition to 
Gorbachov’s nuclear mora- 
torium, about the resistance to 
the policy of openness. 

“I have never met a min- 
ister who liked being criticized 
in any country. Neither do 
ours,” was foe reply. “Their 
work is being discussed on 
television, on foe radio. The 
party is trying to increase 
Openness in all fields.” 

As for international eco- 
nomic cooperation, yes, there 
were changes here too . “Dur- 
ing the 20s and 30s the policy 
or economic isolationism was 
imposed on ns — ” (Another 
breaking of foe taboo on foe 
Stalinist legacy). My neigh- 
bour was as bemused as L He 
spotted Vladimir Sichkov, the 
photographer who emigrated 
some years ago with all those 
startling pictures of ordinary 
Soviet life that was too frank 
in the Brezhnev era to pass the 
censor. “Ten years ago my 
friends were sent to the Gulag 
for saying the very things 
they're saying on the platform 
now,” was his incredulous 
reaction. 

It was, of course, extremely 
clever. Soviet credibility is 
swiftly making inroads, and 
that also is something Mos- 
cow, with foe gentlest of 
unspoken comparisons, is try- 
ing to show foe White House 
press corps. 

Naturally, it was dressed up 
for foreign consumption. 
There were dear instructions 
not to be riled, even by the 
sharp and extensive questions 
on Jewish emigration. There 
was some smart sfeigbt-of- 



Miss Sally Treadwell, organizer of the women's rugby team- (Photograph: Alan Weller) 

Women invade Twickenham 


hand too. “In foe past 40 years 
300,000 people have left the 
Soviet Union, and 300,000 
have come back. Emigration is 
a two-way process.” Gf course, 
if you count aH foe Cossaks 
and those who “emigrated” 
after the Second World War. 

They say in Moscow it still 
is more style than substance. 
But the style is impressive. It 
is a very different public face 
of foe Soviet Union than foe 
one I remembered in the tired, 
cynical days of Brezhnev. 


By John Goodbody, Sports News Correspondent 

Two mixed rugby radon 
matches between teams of 
both sexes are to be staged 
before the England XV versus 
Japan international at Twick- 
enham this afternoon. 

Not since Miss Erica

by Miss Sally TreadweU, aged 
22, the secretary and No 8 of 
die Wasps Ladies team.

streaker, ran bareebested

quarters of the game in 1982

She said: “We are all ex- 
tremely excited about the ex-

weekend and train every

for third

nowhere for foe patriotic La- 
bour voter to go, except to 
come with us." 

It is the disarray of the SDP- 
Liberal Alliance over defence 
as well as foe Labour Party’s 
renewed commitment to uni- 
lateral disarmament which 
has left ministers and Tory 
activists convinced that they 
have been' handed the next 
election on a plate. 

Tory strategists are pointing 
out that with the Alliance 
running second to Conser- 
vatives in far more seats than 
Labour, they can afford to lose 
a large number of seats to 
Labour 

Some ministers are worried, 
however, that foe Govern- 
ment may have peaked, too 
soon and that foe sudden 
turnaround in confidence is 
being allowed to buikl into a 
dangerous euphoria. 

They believe that electors 
would not welcome an early 
election called while there is 
no obvious reason for it and 
are worried about sustaining 
the present mood until next 
autumn. 

If as some of them suspect, 
foe next round of opinion 
polls shows the Government 
in the lead for foe first time in 
a year the pressure for an early 
election will become hard to 

resist. 

• Kinnock Any: last night 
Mr Kinnock made a furious 
response to Mrs Thatcher's 
speech and the promises ear- 
lier in foe week by ministers 
(the Press Association 
reports). 

In a statement he said that 
Mrs Thatcher had foiled to 
explain why, if Britain's 
nuclear weapons were so im- 
portant, “they never seem to 
gain us a place at those 
conferences which decide our 
future”. 

He said: “Her reference to 
neutralism was so ridiculously 
unfounded as to be simply 
scare tactics from a scared 
party. 

“In domestic policy she 
virtually ignored the un- 
employed, industrial decline, 
trade losses, the spread of 
poverty and the state of the 
currency. There is no joy for 
anyone in such woe.”

Selling trims TSB 
price from lOOp 
opening level 

Ry Pit har d Tj ^to n, Banking CMTCSpoajfllt 


[ : ■ ; r. 


Trustee Savings Bank 
shares opened on the stock 
market yesterday at lOOp. a 
100 per cent premium over 
the 50p parfiy-paid offer price, 
but fell back almost immedi- 
ately to dose at about 85p as 
buyers stayed away from the 
market. 

At the opening price the 
market value of the bank was 
the same as that of Lloyds 
Bank, the third largest in the 
country. At the dosing price 
the TSB is still worth more on 
the stock market than Mid- 
land Bank, until now the 
fourth largest. 

Sir John Read, TSB chair- 
man. said: “I was astounded at 
the opening price, but it seems 
to have moved back to more 
the son ofJevri we expected. J 
am very pleased at the way 
things have gone.” 

The start of dealing was the 
culmination of a long and 
often tort uous process to 
launch the TSB on the stock 
market. Sir John added: “It 
has taken us three years to get 
here. Now that it is over, we 
are all set to review our 
plans."* 

The flotation would have 
gone ahead last February, bm 

Profit blow 
for print 
predators 

By Cliff Feftham. 

McCorquodale, the bank- 
note printer fighting a £145- 
million takeover bid by 
Norton Opax, stunned its 
predators last night when it 
forecast a 25 per cent increase 
in profits for 1987, just one 
week into the new financial 
yeair ’ 

In a hard-hitring defence, 
McCorquodale confirmed 
fiat profits: for the year- just 
ended would rise 37 per cent 
to £14 million, and told 
shareholders to expect a total 
of £17.5 million for the 
present year. 

- Last night a spokesman for 
Norton Opax said: “Coming 
out with a profit forecast for 
1987 smacks of a desperation 
measure to us.” 

But Mr John Hofloran. the 
chief executive, said it was not 
unusual to malm a forecast so 
for ahead. “It is a question of 
having confidence in the fu- 
ture, and we have a very dear 
strategy which is coming 
through. We were able to 
make- this forecast because .of 
the timing of the bid which 
straddles die two financial 
years.” 

Mr Holloran attacked the 
Norton Opax bid, saying its 
profits had been dependent on 
ODe-off gains from acq- 
uisitions. 

“It recognizes that McCorq- 
uodale, having recently com- 
pleted a major capital exp- 
enditure programme, has the 
growth potential which it 
lacks. In effect, Norton Opax 
is proposing that McCorq- 
uodale's shareholders should 
fund Norton Opax's belated 
capital expenditure." 

It emerged yesterday that 
Klein won Benson, McCor- 
quodale's financial advisers, 
had bought 500,000 shares ata 
price of 26Ip, Ip more than 
the Norton Opax cash offer. 

This coincided with news 
that ExteL the information 
services group, had aban- 
doned its plans to rescue 
McCorquodale. 


it was delayed by legal wran- 
gles over who owned the bank. 


Mr Mark O* Hanlon of 
Hoare Govcti said : “The in- 


which e nd«»ri in the House, of stitu lions have been very re- 


Lords in August. 

Dealing in the shares was 
quiet all day, with a turnover 
of 60 million to 70 million 


strained. There was some 
buying when the price 
dropped briefly below 84p, 
but most institutions are wail- 


shares. Mr William Vincent of ing for the price to go lower" 
the broker Scrimgeour Vide- . . 


os. said: “It was nothing like 
the enormous volume oftrad- 
ing on the first day of British 
Telecom shares.” 

The scene on the Stock 
Exchange floor was quiet and 
orderly compared with the 
hysteria when British Telecom 
shares first started trading. 

This was partly because 
there were only three market- 
makers in Telecom shares, 
whereas there are 17 for TSB 
shares, making access to mar- 
ket makers much easier. 

Sir John said some of the 
3. 1 5 trillion investors may not 
have received their allocation 
letters, without which they 
cannot sell their shares, until 
the second post yesterday, 
while others may not receive 
theirs until today. 

Institutional investors, who 
were allocated only a small 
proportion of the shares, were 
waiting for the price to foil 
lower before buying. 


He added: “Monday is 
likely to be for more exciting. 

More private investors will be

Dr Henry Kaufman, head of 
research for Salomon Broth-

interest rates and hence ster-

American credit conditions. 
Now that Salomon is moving 
into the gilt-edged market, his 
comments are more direct. 

Yesterday Dr Kanfman, in 
London to front Salomon's 
first gift-edged seminar for 
160 institutions, could offer

Ex-Lever 
chief for 
Guinness 
in the US 

By Graham Searjeant 
Financial Editor 

Guinness has taken an im- 
portant step in its drive to 
improve spint exports by 
recruiting Mr William Pict- 
ersen to lead its North Ameri- 
can wine and spirit op- 
erations. 

Mr Piciersen is a long-time 
Unilever manager who has 
been president of the Lever 
Brothers food division in lhe 
United States since 14g0. 

He will be responsible for 
co-ordinating the hitherto 
largely independent former 
Distillers whisky and white 
spint businesses in the US. 
which include the Distillers 
Somerset group. Distillers 
Canada and some Caribbean 
operations. 

Together these account for 
$750 million (£522 million) of 
the projected $4 billion world- 
wide sales of the Guinness 
group this year. 

Mr Pietersen will also han- 
dle relationships with the 
diverse distributors of file 
group’s wine and spirit 
brands, which have tradition- 
ally been marketed by local 
firms. 

Mr Ernest Saunders, the 
Guinness -chairman, who an- 
nounced lhe appointment in 
New York yesterday, sank 
“Willie Pietersen's appoint- 
ment as our first president for 
North America is an im- 
portant step in our pro- 
gramme for building our US 
and Canadian wine and spirit 
business. 

“Somerset’s brands, which 
include Johnnie Walker, 
Pimm’s and Tanqueray, have 
premier positions in the US. 
The commitment of Mr 
Pieiersen. who is truly a lop 
international brand marketer, 
will ensure that Distillers 
Somerset and our other US 
and Canadian interests will 
receive the leadership they 
deserve." 


Optimism on 
output accord 
at Opec talks 

From David Yonng 
Several delegates now strug- 
gling to find a new output 
quota agreement at Opec’s 
current meeting in Geneva 
were still predicting yesterday 
that the meeting would end 
with a decision to roll over the 
current production level of 
16.8 million barrels a day. 
And any new quota system 
could come into force on 
January 1. 

The Opec president, Mr 
Rilwani L u kma n . the Ni- 
gerian oil minister, said yes- 
terday he was still confident 
that a new agreement on 
output could be reached 


£ 





a rise in interest rates," he 
said. 

Salomon is adopting a 
higher profile, with a large 
new high-tech headquarters at 
Victoria station, because, as 
one exeeative pnt it, “we aim to 
be at the top of the pGe" in the 
gilt-edged market after the Big 
Bang on October 27. 

Mr Christopher Dark, head 
of gilt-edged distribution, said 
that Salomon — one of 27 gilt- 
edged market-makers under 
the new system — does not 
intend to boy market share by 
trading at low margins or 
maintaining big stock po- 
sitions for Bie sue of size. 

u Bot our aim is to be a 
significant factor in the mar- 
ket-place and to be a signifi- 
cant provider ofliquidity to the 
market" Salomon’s gilt-edged 
unit will initially be capitalized 
at just £20 million. 

Mr Dark said he foresaw 
the number of market-makers 
shrinking to about 15 in two 
years, with a first division of 
abont SO. including his own 
firm.

Europe: go 
for the encore. 

Following spectacular growth in 1985 
European markets have consolidated in the 
first half of this year. Many financial advisers 
are now looking again towards Europe for 
dynamic growth. 

The Oppenheimer European 
Growth Trust 

aims to capitalise on the obvious benefits of 
low interest rates, low inflation, dramatically # 
reduced energy costs and the general climate of 
political stability. European markets are still 
relatively cheap. 

Currency Gains 

In addition to the healthy outlook for 
stockmarkets, clients will benefit further if the 
pound continues to weaken against major 
European currencies, for example the Swiss 
Franc has appreciated over 20% against 
Sterling so far this year. 

Oppenheimer was one of the first to forecast 
the major European potential in late 1984. 
Our European fund was the top performing 
of all authorised unit trusts in 1985 and is 
currently up 77.3% over the 12 months to 
1st October.

pean brochure call 01-489 1078

STOCK MARKET REPORT 


High street rally tipped 
in stockbroker’s bulletin 


By Michael Clark 
and Carol Leonard 

Small private investors win 
be realizing profits of up to 
£100 million from the sate of 
their TSB shares in the next 
few weeks and most of it is 
likely to find its way into the 


big street. 


says Wood Mackenzie, 
the leading Scottish broker. Its 
influential quarterly bulletin 
on “C onsumer Sector 
Prospects” will be published 
on Monday. 

The bulletin says the retail 
sector is at a relative 15- 
monih low and predicts new 
highs before kmg. 

"Fears of base rale rises 
always knock the retail 
sector." says Mr Paul Aynstey, 
Wood Mackenzie's top stores 
analyst. “'But the market 
shouldn't let interest rate wor- 
ries mask the fact that real 
incomes have grown 
enormously. 

“We have turned very pos- 
itive on the stores sector m the 
past couple of days; we expect 
them to have a very good 
Christmas and think the 
whole sector is on the brink of 
bouncing np again." 

Mr Aynsley has moved 
three leading retailers onto bis 
“strong buy" list. Next has 
had a very good September, be

Grand Metropolitan, the 
brewing group* recovered from 
an early 5p foil yesterday 
to finish Ip higher at 451 p. 

T C Coombs, the broker, 
refused to comment on reports 
that it was trying to place a 
line of 3S million shares in 
the company at 445p. The 
sleuths at Wood Mackenzie, 
the Scottish broker, have 
checked the share register and 
say there are do holdings 
of more than 5 per cent. 


says, while Freemans, the mail 
order group, is long overdue 
for a re-rating. And Burton is 
cheap and should reveal a 
useful set of year-end figures 
next month, he says. 

“We’re looking for £145 
million profits this lime and 
£187 million in 1987," he 
adds. 

Next- was one of the few 
stores companies to show any 
gains yesterday, firming just a 
penny to 233p. Austin Heed, 
the tailor, also improved, 
rising ISp to 330p after good 
results. Freemans lost a few 
pence to 420p and Burton 4p 
to266p. 

Gibs had another good day, 
mostly on hopes that Britain’s 
entry into the EMS may not be 
that for away. They gamed £1 
in the longs and np to £% in 
the shorts. 

Money market rates were 
easier again, drifting Yio per 
cent lower on three-month 
money to 10 ’Yib. 


Among foreign bonds, 5 per 
cent stock issued by the Chi- 
nese in 1922 and 1913 ad- 
vanced £2 to £28. Six months 
ago the Chinese Government 
held talks in Peking on the 
bonds, admitting the debt for 
the first time. 

Expectations have been 
raised in the City that they 
may now offer a settlement, 
ahead of the Queen's visit 
there next week. 

The equity market was pre- 
occupied throughout the day 

with the TSB debut The part- 
paid TSB shares opened at 
98p, giving shareholders a 
premium of almost 100 per 
cent But they went steadily 
lower and dosed at a middle 
price of 851fcp. 

Cleveland Securities, the 
licensed dealer, was offering 
84p after boars last night and 
will be keeping its Great 
Eastern Street offices open 
today and tomorrow so that 
small shareholders can call in 
to sell their shares and collect 
their cheques at the same 
time. 

The FT 30 share index 
closed at its best level of the 
day at 1265.4, down 2.7. while 
theFT-SE 1 00 share index was 
down 92 at 1S99.4 

Bine Circle, the cement 
company, stole the limelight 
among leaders putting on I5p 
to 576p. British analysts on a 
company visit to its opera- 
tions in Atlanta have been 
phoning borne with orders to 
buy. 

Elsewhere blue chips were 
mostly down. Beecham lost 6p 
to 410p, BTR 5p to 295p, ICI 
5p to I109p and Lucas, de- 
spite the end to the overtime 
ban by its employees, also 
dipped 5p to 503p. Comtudds 
went against the trend, gaining 
7pto29lp. 

Cadbury Schweppes, 
Britain’s biggest chocolate 
manufacturer, climbed 7p to 
l92p, to match its' all-time 
high for the year. -The shares 
have risen I9p In the past 
week, fuelled by speculation 
that United Biscuits may be 
about to bid. “We never 
comment on these rumours," 
said Mr Bob Clarke, chief 
executive of UB. “But we 


don't own any Cadbury 
stares*" be added. 

Some food analysts in the 
City are beginning to wonder 
if Cadbury might be about to 
take advantage of hs beady 
share price ana launch a bid of 

ilSOWXL 

“The shares are looking 
very expensive," said one top 
analyst. “And despite all this 
bid speculation, they could 
really -be paving the way to 
launch a bid themselves." 

Oils were mostly easier on 
fears that the oil price could 
coOapse. Shell lost 13p to 
925p, BP 1 !p to 685p, Britofl 
7p to I33p and Enterprise 4p 
to I45p. Ultramar slipped I Op 
to 1 60p after Mr Ron Brier ley, 
the New Zealand business- 
man. announced that his 
Hong Kong investment arm, 
1EP Securities, bad reduced hs 
holding still further to 35.6 
million shares. He now speaks 
for 13 per cent of the com- 
pany. Some sector-watchers 
think the shares may have 
gone to Rainbow Corporation, 
an Australian investment 
group run by ambitious Mr 
Craig Heatley. If so. his4.9 per 
cent bolding will be boosted to 
5.1 percent. 

IC Gas jumped 15pto5!8p 
as patient bid speculators 
piled back into the stock for 
the new account Word is that 
the Barclay Brothers may at 
last be ready to bid, using Gulf 
Resources as their vehicle. 

Petranol, which bad eased a 
few pence early on, ended the 
day unchanged at 34p when 
the market heard that its 
planned rights issue and ac- 
quisition of Apollo Energy 
had been blocked by 
shareholders at an extraor- 
dinary meeting. 

Bridon, the ropemaker. 
caused something of a stir by 
announcing that a close 
inspection of its share register 
had revealed a build-up of 
shares under nominee hold- 
ings. One of them, is Alixan 
Securities, with 23 million 
shares (4.15 per cent). Alixan 
is ultimately controlled by 
Henry Ansbacher, the mer- 
chant bank, which has asked 
fora copy of the share register. 
Dr Ashraf Marwan, the Egyp- 


tian businessman, also speaks 
for 175 million shares (4.97 
per cent). Bridon. which has 
been lipped before as a take- 
over target, rose I8p to 14Ip 
on the news. 

DeeCorp. the Fine Fare and 
International Stores super- 
. market group, tumbled 1 3p to 
21 Sp after rumours circulating 
late on Thursday night that a 
line of 25 million shares, 
worth nearly £80 million, bad 
changed bands outside the 
market. 

Some dealers were con- 
vinced the deal had been 
pulled at the last minute after 
a disagreement over the price. 
Salomon Brothers, the big 
New York stockbroker, and 
our own James Cape! were 
thought to be the prime 
movers and acting on behalf 
of some institutions. Mean- 
while. Dee's bid for M&H 
Sporting Goods will not be 
referred to the Monopolies 
Commission. 

McCorqnodale, the target of 
an unwanted £145 million bid 
from Norton Opax, has pre- 
pared another line of defence 
after the breakdown of talk* 
with a “white knight", thought 
to have been Extel. Earlier this 
week the group predicted pre- 
tax profits of £14 million for 
the current year and last night 
followed up with a forecast of 

• Glaxo, the drug 
conglomerate, slid 17p to 
930p on news that it has 
dropped Xorehaool, a pain 
killer h sold under licence 
from a small American re- 
search company. The City 
had hoped it would taro oat to 
be the next big money 
spinner for Glaxo after 
Zantac, the anti-ulcer 
dreg. Glaxo ’s year-end re- 
sults, due out on Tuesday, 
are expected to show profits of 
£600 million against £400 


£17.5 million for next year. 
Dealers said it was an un- 
precedented move for a com- 
pany to make two profit 
forecasts in its own defence. 

Hargreaves Group, the en- 
ergy transport and waste dis- 
posal specialist, jumped 12p 
to 256p after Coalite, the 
chemicals group, was given 
the go-ahead to proceed with 
its bid after the Office of Fair 
Trading decided not to refer it 
to the Monopolies and Merg- 
ers Commission. 

But there is mourning 
speculation in the market that 
someone else may have been 
passing an acquisitive eye 
over Hargreaves and may 
decide to launch its own bid. 
Coalite slipped 3p to 265p 
after learning that it had been 
given the green light 


COMMENT 


Beware, Elliott’s storm 
on industry is brewing 


John Elliott is a singular man. In the 
past few years he has built Elders IXL 
into one" of the biggest international 
brewing combines. He has assembled 
around him a young, financially 
sophisticated management team with 
a siring of takeover battle honours 
behind it. An investment offl.000 in 
Elliott's first company vehicle, Henry 
Jones, when he was fresh from a spell 
with McKinsey, the management 
consultants, has grown today to be 
worth £30,000. 

Since 1981, when Jones merged 
with Elders, the key performance 
measures have been spectacular. The 
share price has shown 23 per cent 
compound growth and earnings per 
share the same. Net income of his far- 
flung group has leapt by 40 per cent 
annually. Elliott and his team have 
taken Australia by storm. After the 
£1.4 billion purchase of Courage from 
Lord Hanson, he is poised to do the 
same on a much bigger canvas. But 
will he? 

Presently, shares of Elders IXL 
languish at a substantial discount to 
the brewing sector, though income 
from drinks will account for SO per 
cent of his operations this year. 

For the London investment scene, 
Elliott and his men represent nothing 
less than a culture shock. By the 
standards of the Beerage, they sport a 
cavalier approach. Elders has a pen- 


chant for gearing levels that would 
make the average UK. finance 
director's hair turn white. Elliott's 
philosophy is that shareholders do 
best if the equity base of his group is 
kepi tightly under control. 

At the end of 1983 Elders was 
saddled with enormous burdens of 
debt giving a gearing ratio of more 
than five-to-one after the purchase of 
Carlton United Brewery. Yet within 
18 months he had transformed the 
picture by making his assets sweat and 
unlocking cash from surplus asssets 
within the group. 

His purchase of Courage takes the 
borrowings back to more than double 
shareholders' funds. And yet last week 
some hard-headed analysis were say- 
ing that before next summer he can re- 
store that to a one-to-one basis. 

If he is successful, Britain’s more 
staid brewers will have to return to ihe 
drawing board for they will be forced 
to re-think their approach to that 
sacred cow of the industry, the so 
called lied estate. 

Having secured finance for the 
Courage deal this week. Elders is 
working on plans to securitize the 
assets locked in the 5,000 Courage 
pubs by bringing in outside investors. 
Those close to him think that over 
time he can release up to £700 million 
of cash in this way. If so his stock is 
cheap at 22 Sp. 


Chill winds of competition 


For those who earn their living in the 
Square Mile it has been a vintage year. 
In the run-up to Big Bang business has 
boomed, salaries have mushroomed 
and many have been able to capitalize 
handsomely on their past endeavours 
as they merged their business with one 
financial conglomerate or another. 

Now, though, as stockbrokers go 
through the delicate, but vital negotia- 
tions over the terms on which they 
will deal after October 27, the chill 
winds of competition are beginning to 
make themselves felt with a 
vengeance. 

A year ago equity commissions for 
the leading brokers who aimed to 
provide a roll service to their institu- 
tional clients probably averaged a 
little more than 0.3 per cent across the 
board. The way things are headed 
levels of income like that will soon be 
no more than a fond memory of a 
never-to-be-repeated golden age. 

At the aggressive end of the market 
some brokers, in particular those with 
US partners keen to build up market 
share, are offering their best institu- 
tional clients terms of as little as 0. 1 75 
per cent. Assuming for a moment that 
the volume of business handled by the 
London market post Big Bang re- 


mains roughlv constant, the hard 
placers may be budgetting for a near 
halving of their inccr*c on equity 
business. 

Some of the more conservative 
institutions north of the border are 
said to be looking twice at this 
apparent gift-horse. For they know 
that if the cost-cutting becomes too 
fierce they will suffer the loss of other 
services. 

Most full-serv ice brokers are look- 
ing to average commissions of a little 
more than 0.2 per cent, representing a 
drop in income on unchanged turn- 
over of roughly a third. Predicting 
what will happen to turnover is 
fraught with problems. But is hard to 
see the private shareholder or the 
pension fund suddenly churning his 
portfolio cheerfully. 

Nor can the full-service brokers rely 
on their market-making operations to 
make up the lost ground. There will be 
a huge increase in equity market- 
making capacity. With little more 
than a couple of weeks to Big Bang it 
looks as though the winners are going 
to be those with the deepest purses.

Big investors play it 
cool on TSB shares 


There was mild embarrass- 
ment among Sir John Read 
and his cohorts over the , silly 
opening premium on Trustee 
Savings Bank shares. But 
there was no sign of British 
Telecom hysteria on the trad- 
ing floor, and the price rap- 
idly dropped away by more 
than 15p to below 85p as 
institutional investors played 
it cool. 

That initial level may well 
be the highest the partly-paid 
shares wiD reach, and many 
small investors who did not 
receive their acceptance tel- 
lers yesterday are .likely to 
feel hard done by.- 

So for the late post has cost 
a holder of 300 shares rather 
more than £30. One wonders 
why Lazards did not simply 
delay dealing until Monday 
and the start of the new 
trading account 

The real action in the 
shares will start on Monday 
as the acceptance letters all 
come through and the stags 
start selling in earnest The 
price could dn» quite 
sharply, though n it goes 
below 80p, present evidence 
suggests that it will meet 
strong buying. 

There was institutional 
support when the price 
dipped under 85 p. and any- 
thing much lower may start 
to look like a bargain. 

The uncertainty is over 
how competitive the institu- 
tions will become when the 
selling by small shareholders 
starts to dry up, as it may do 
quite quickly. It could send 
the price oscillating back up 
again towards 9Gp. which 
would be expensive. 

At the opening price, the 
bank was trading at a vast 
premium to net asset value 
At 80p it would be at a 2 to 3 
per cent discount, a for more 
appropriate level for the 
bank. 

Many of the 3.15 million 
investors will, of course, not 
self ai all. Having been led to 
exoect dazzling gains of about 
5(W) on each share, some 
Snail investors may see a -5 p 
to 30p premium as inad- 
equate and opt to be long 
term investors. 

There is certainly no shame 


in that. They are, after all, 
owners of the country's 
fourth largest bank — t houg h 
at the opening price TSB’s 
market capitalization was 
third equal with Lloyds. 

Wooltons 

Bob Thornton, the former 
chairman of Debenhams. 
who fought a long, hard battle 
to oppose the takeover by (he 
Burton Group, was called 
back into service as non- 
executive chairman of Wool- 
tons Betterware, a soft 
furnishings and household- 
ware business, two weeks 
before its flotation on the 
Unlisted Securities Market 

The late arrival cm the 
board of Mr Thornton, the 
experienced retailer, insist all 
concerned, was not intended 
to give the company an extra 
push to ensure the ofler-for- 
sale is a success. 

Greene and Company is 
offering two million shares, 
20 percent of the business, at 
104p. On the baas of a profit 
forecast for the current year 
of £1 million against 
£720,000, the p/e of 16 seems 
a bit dear although Wooltons 
Benerware has a good trade 
record and prospects do look 
attractive. 

About 60 per cent of the 
business comes from making 
and selling curtains, blinds 
and other home funushisgs 
through 78 of its own 
branches and concessions 
with companies such as War- 
ing & Gillow, Brentfords and 
Harris Queensway. 

Betterware operates 
through a streamlined sates 
force backing up a four- 
times-a-year catalogue offer- 
ing kitchen and tableware, 
bathroom, garden and car- 
care products. 

Extel 

If you saw a white knight 
galloping pas* this week leav- 
ings damsel in distress, it was 
probably Extel. 

McOorqucKfote w iff have to 
look around for another 
suitor if it is to fight off 
Norton Opax’s unwelcome 
advances. 

The extent to which the 
institutions encouraged Extel 


to ignore McCorquodate's 
entreaties is undear. No 
doubt many were reminded 
of the fall in ExteTs share 
price after the last bout of 
corporate activity. 

It is hard to justify the price 
paid for Dealers' Digest. 
Even McCorquodaJe did not 
hesitate long before accepting 
the offer for its 25 per cent 
holding. Extel’s supporters 
believe there is a synergy 
which will open up opportu- 
nities for cross-fertilization of 
ideas and products. 

In 1985/86, sports and 
financial services contributed 
£6.2 million to the total 
trading profit of £14.6 mil- 
lion. Sport is estimated to 
account for £3.5 million. 
Extel has foiled to secure the 
Racecourse Association's lu- 
crative satellite television 
communication contract so 
profits from this source could 
rail by about £2 million. 
Dealers’ Digest will have to 
be instrumental in making up 
this lost ground. 

Hyperactive corporate 
financiers have boosted 
printing profits; they are also 
benefiting from the flotations 
of the TSB and British Gas. 
Publishing activities are 
performing well although 
computer services are Dot 
fully recovered 

Extel needs to gain a new 
momentum if it is to fight off 
a Maxwell bid next spring. 
With an unfriendly 25 odd 
per cent shareholding casting 
a shadow over the business it 
is hard to see where this wfl] 
come from. 

On a pretent year forecast 
of £19 million, the shares are 

standing on a p/e ratio of 14. 1 
times. 

Robert Maxwell may use 
the price paid for Dralera' 
Digest as a reason for 
towards the' 

400p-450p price land. At 
425p the historic exit p/e 
would be 17.1 times. Mr 
Maxwell no doubt feels he 
can justify this price by 
revitalizing the operation. 

In the meantime, as bid 
speculation waxes and wanes, 
the shares provide good trad- 
ing opportunities.

** Target soars head and shoulders above ail 
rivals in the pensions field ** 


The Times, Saturday 26Ui January 1985. 

If you"re self-employed or the director of a 
private company, you’ll know all about Ihe lax 
advantages of investing in a pension plan. 

Your biggest problem will be selecting the 
best from the rest Obviously, the most important 
factor will be the size of your pension fond when 
you eventually retire. 


** Target Managed is unquestionably thr^ 
Steve Cram of investment performance 


Money Manaitemrni. October IBrtii. 

What it doesn't show, however, is lhal the 
Tbrgei Plan has oul -performed all other personal 
pension plans over the Iasi ten years. 

What's more, only the Target plan provides 
you with a guaranteed l< win back facility* enabling 
you to draw on your investment whenever ymi 
like, with no additional management charges. 


' Indeed the best performing contract in the ** Prize for the most outstanding performance 

rvey was linked to Target’s Managed Fund ** of the decade must stiLI go to Target Managed** 


The Daily Telegraph, Saturday Slsi December 1983. 

All too often, this decision is taken as a result 
of comparing protected growth figures, whereas 
the only realistic basis for comparison is achieved 
growth. The table above compares the actual 
results of an investment in the Tkiget Personal 
Pension Plan - linked to the 'forget Managed 
Pension Rind -with two 
leading with profits 
policies and three other 
unit linked plans invested 
in managed funds.

THE TIMES SATURDAY OCTOBER 1 1 1986 




Growth Equity 

Blue- Chip iwnH 

Like most of our trusts, 
Growth Equity's purpose is long 
term capital growth. However; its 
distinguishing feature is the em- 
phasis our investment team 
places upon blue-chip British 
companies. 

In the top third 

The combination of blue- 
drip investments, plus holdings 
in proven companies on the way 
up. provides just the sort of 
diversified base that makes 
Growth Equity an extremely 
good bet for a canny investor. 

A broad spread of risk, 
though, doesn't necessarily mean 
a low return. Growth Equity's 
performance places it 28th out 
of93 similar trustsf— in feet well 
within the top third over the 3 
years aiding 1st October, 1986- 

Now’s the time 
to apply 

Falling inflation plus growth 
in the economy is putting more 
money in peoples pockets. Given 
die trusts very substantial con- 
sumer goods investments, this 
augurs extremely well for the 
future. 




Property Shore North American 


The most successful trust 
in its field 

Over the three years ending 
1st October 1986, this mist has 
proved the best performer of afl 
trusts in its field. 

The trust's aim is to provide 
investors with a specialist fund of 
carefully selected property shares, 
and this has the great advantage 
of avoiding the problems of direct 
property ownership. The stocks 
are easily tr a nsferred, allowing us 
to switch quickly to any promis- 
ing company at will. 

Why ids been so 

n ailsranfirng 

Our award winning invest- 
ment team has opted for a 
policy of backing the new 
breed of property developers 
and traders; and a major portion 
of the trust's holdings is in- 
vested in these more dynamic 
businesses. 

That, plus our avoidance of 
speculative investments, is a pol- 
icy that’s proved as successful as 
it has proved safe, for from its 
launch in May 1983 to 9th 
October 1986, the Property 
Share Trust has grown by a 
breathtaking 167%? • 


Steriing /doHar rate 
greatly unproved 

Launched in March 1983, 
the trust s aim is long term capital 
growth through a broad-based 
portfolio of American equities. 

Until recently the American 
marker was a disappointing one 
for British investors. The position 
now; however; is very different, 
due to the more favourable 
sterling/dollar rate (and seems 
likely to stay that way), 
ffell Street climbing 
strongly 

With the fell in oil prices, 
lower interest rates, and the 
strong climb that Wall Street has 
shown since November, now's 
the time to invest in this trust. 
And especially so once you realise 
that our results have been con- 
sistently better than the average 
for similar trusts. 

Detailed in v estm e n t research 

Much of our investment 
team's time has been spent 
researching the American 
market — often with personal 
vises to the companies in which 
die trust has holdings. In a 
competitive market like Wall 
Street it's just this sort of attention 
to detail that gives us the edge. 



European 


A proven success 
The aim of the trust is — like 
most of our trusts — long term 
capital growth. In this instance 
through a portfolio of exclusive- 
ly European equities. But how 
has if performed? As our figures 
will show; extremely weH 

One of the top per form ers 
amongst all unit trusts 

Launched in April 1984, our 
European Trust had grown by 
164% by the 9th October 1986* 
making it one of the leading trusts 
in its category 

Our investment managers 
have achieved this high perfor- 
mance withp wide geographical 
spread of carefully selected 
biddings. 

Analytical depth 

Nothing succeeds in evalua- 
ting a company like thorough 
financial analysis. And, rather 
than following the crowd, our 
investment team travels widely 
co meet with companies that 
they’re planning on investing in. 
The result? A far better under- 
standing of that company’s affairs 
than oould be achieved by desk 
research alone. 



Exceptionally high 
performance 

Since its launch in April 1983, 
our Pacific Trust has shown itself 
do be an extremely high perfor- 
mer over the three years to 1st 
October 1986, it ranked eighth 
amongst all twenty eight similar 
trusts*, and by 9th October 
1986 had achieved a growth of 
151%.* 

Why has this Pacific trust 
done so well? 

As with any investment port- 
folio. there are many reasons. 
However, principal amongst 
them is our knowledge of the 
Japanese market — currently the 
major part of our portfolio — plus 
our overview of the regiorisother 
market opportunities. 

As regards Japan, ware expec- 
ting considerable stimulation of 
the internal economy which will 
result in increased consumer ex- 
penditure — and the trust is well 
placed to take advantage of this. 

The rest of our holdings are 
invested in such countries as 
Australia, Singapore, New Zea- 
land, Korea and Thailand. The 
current performance of the last 
two points to them becoming 
powerful markets for the future. 





N 


Guardhill Smaller Companies 


A huge trust with a solid 
performance 

With assets of over €200 
million. Guar dhill is one of the 
largest and most solid of all unit 
trusts. Its also one of the longest 
established (1967). One of the 
minority of mists to go through 
the 1974 bear market (and come 
out in good shape), Guardhill is 
the ideal mist for the cautious 
investor. 

A careful spread of British 
investments 

The aim of Guardhill is 
slightly different id that of most 
of our unit trusts, to provide 
growth of income as well as capi- 
tal. The Guardhill portfolio is in- 
vested in British stocks only: and 
its size, solid growth and extrem- 
ely large spread of risk make it 
one of the most reliable perform- 
ers amongst aQ. unit trusts. 

Many holdings currently 
undervalued 

That's the opinion of our in- 
vestment ream: viz. relative ro 
rhe rest of the market, many of 
the companies in which the trust 
has holdings are worth more 
than their current valuation 
would indicate— a very good 
reason for investing now. 


Every company is carefully 
researched 

Aimed at above-average 
capital return from smaller com- 
panies (mostly UK. based) our 
Smaller Companies Trust has 
shown excellent growth since its 
launch in May 1983; 109% up 
by 9th October; 1986* 

The reason for the crusts 
success is no secret Were un- 
usually fortunate in having 
some of die best research facili- 
ties in the City Not only do we 
have over 20 specialised analysts, 
but our investment team often 
goes out to visit companies in 
the field. With the Big Bang 
likely to produce cuts in re- 
search facilities elsewhere, this 
puts us in pole position for 
administering a smaller com- 
panies trust 

Ideal conditions 
for growth 

The present political and 
economic dimate looks most en*i 
couraging for smaller companies. 
With the predicted growth in the 
economy falling inflation and 
continuing good company results, 
this is currently a most interest- 
ing investment area.

, w ? s fi% aware that 
long with two work coi- 
^gues he was about to be 

resented with a cheque b?tte 
omedian Lennie Bennett for 
LiU/ewoods pools win. 

It was the size of the win 

him - close on 
.900.000 in total - of which 

?o!?r^n sh . are - ^ a cool 
.-90000. It is the stuff of 

hich dreams are made, even 
or people who do not do the 
ools themselves. 

couldn’t sleep for two 
ighls before that,” explains 
--year-old Terry. One thine 
'as certain. With a windfell of 
early £300,000. life would 
ever be quite the same again 
>r Terry, his wife Shirley and 
»eir two sons, Stephen, aged 
gnt, and Ian, aged six. After 
.^Jcrry- s take-home pay was 
>50 a month. 

The day that changed the 
ves of the Brown family 
ryond imagination was May 
the last full day of the 1985- 
> Football League pro- 
amme. There were nine 
ore draw-s that day, and 
?rry and his syndicate col- 
agues had eight of them. 
After the thought of riches 
tgan to sink in. Terry tde- 
toned Littlewoods that eve- 
>ng to stake his claim. Then 
: asked his mother to babysit 
hile he took Shirley out fora 
rink at the local. “I couldn’t 
)eak to anyone in the pub, 
ot even Shirley. I just sat 
tere.” says Terry. On Sunday 
ittlewoods rang back to co fi- 
rm that there was a lot of 
toney involved. That was 
allowed by a visit fh>m a 
.ittlewoods representative, 
/ho estimated a total win of 
■600.000. h turned out to be 
Jmost 50 per cent higher than 
haL 

After the hoopla of the 
ireseniation and the obliga- 
ory splashing of champagne 
in the party frocks, Terry's 
houghis turned to how to 
.pend the money. 

His initial ambitions were 
nodes! enough for a man who 
tad just been given a tax-free 
:heque for nearly £300,00 Gl 
S hirley went to visit an old 
Triend in Aberdeen while 
Terry chose himself a new 
E 1 2.000 Toyota and picked np 
the bill for a weekend trip to 
Blackpool for his local football 

£30,000 mortgage 
for the tax relief 

learn, ihe Ben well Blues- He 
also bought his brother a new 
:ar. made gifts to other rel- 
atives and paid out £23.000 
for a new house for his 
mother. 

Terry and his family have 
since moved into their own 
four-bedroom detached 
house, Shirley’s dream home. 
Even though they could afford 
to pav the £65,000 asking price 
Duirighl. they sensibly chose 
to take out a £30.000 mortgage 
to get the tax relief! 

But that aU left a lot of 
monev still in the kitty — ■ 
£200.000. to be precise. The 
question was what to do with 
h. Initially, the money was put 
Dn deposit at his local Barclays 
but, realizing there 



Champagne for a winner; Ten? Brown, left, celebrates his pools scoop. Right: Alan Mackay, his financial adviser 


It was then that the manag- 
ing director ofBBN’s financial 
services division, Alan 
Mackay, flew up to Newcastle 
to meet Terry and his co- 
winners and ended up advis- 
ing all three of them on their 
financial future. 

Mr Mackay explains that 
because Maries & Spencer had 
introduced his firm as in- 
dependent advisers and be- 
cause BBN had prepared 
detailed reports, Terry and his 
colleagues soon began to relax 
and become enthusiastically 
involved in their own money 
management. 

While the detailed plans 
were being worked out. Mr 

Drawing up wills 
was a priority 

Mackay's first recommenda- 
tion was that Terry's winnings 
were transferred from bank 
deposit to the Yorkshire 
Building Society's Platinum 
Key Account. That move in 
itself meant that instant access 
to the money was retained but 
that the rate of interest it was 
earning increased by 2 percent 
net of tax. 

At the same tune Mr 
Mackay also gave priority to 
arranging for lawyers to draw 
up and execute mils for both 
Terry and Shirley. It was 
something they felt they had 
never had to think about in 
the past. 

In fact, the whole subject of 
inheritance lax planning took 
priority, with the wills being 
drawn up in such a way that 
Terry and Shirley would leave 
everything to each other and 
then their children, with the 
exception that a sum of 
£71,000 would pass to each of 
the children on the first pa- 
rental death, makingthe plan- 
ning even more efficient 
under current tax legislation. 

Then came the detailed 
investment recommenda- 
tions. Mr Mackay proposed 
that i 30,000 should be left in 
the Yorkshire Platinum Key 
Account for emergencies. So 
£170,000 was taken out with 
the intention that Terry’s net 
monthly income should be 
doubled. 

branch but, realizing mere A total of £80,000 was split 
musl be more profitable ways equally between 10-year in- 
of making his money work for come plans with Norwich 
him. Terry sought help from Union and Sun Alliance to 
Marks & Spencer, which in give a fixed rate of return of 9 
turn asked investment advis- per cent as a monthly income, 
ers Bern . Birch and Noble to Both these insurance policies 
gr ve their ad vice. are combined annuity 


endowment contracts which 
mature after 10 years free of 
tax and in the meantime pay a 
9 per cem net income. 

A further £1 0,000 (£5,000 in 
Teny's name and £5.000 in 
Shirley’s) was {Hit into the 3 1 st 
issue of National Savings 
certificates, which pays 7.85 
per cent a year, free of all tax. 

With the building blocks in 
place as far as security of 
income was concerned, it was 
then important to introduce 
some measured risk for 
longer-term growth bur with- 
out any direct exposure to 
individual equity investment 

So the next step was to split 
a total of £45.000 into three 
equal parts. One £15,000 
chunk went into a Scottish 
Mutual single premium 
growth bond in order, as Mr 
Mackay puis it, “to give 
flexibility on income with a 5 
cent a year withdrawal 
ity". 

The second £1 5.000 tranche 
went into Henderson's Prime 
Residential Property Fund, 
which, as its name suggests, 
puts Investors* money into the 
classier sorts of property that 
you see around the Regent's 
Park and Soane Square dis- 
tricts of London. They are 
usually let out to diplomats 
and London-based American 
businessmen and they are 


Finandai review 
every six months 


and 


usually too expensive to be 
subject to rent control 
-legislation. 

Mr Mackay’s recommenda- 
tion for the third £15,000 
chunk was a five-way equal 
split into unit trusts. To give 
an international spread and 
provide a capital growth 
emphasis, £3,000 went into 
each of the following funds — 
Gartmore Global. Equity & 
Law North America, Hender- 
son European, M&G Recov- 
ery. and Prudential UK 
Growth. 

' A further £30,000 has gone 
into Norwich Union's Growth 
Phut, which is estimated to 
grow free of tax to around 
£85,000 by 1996. 

Back to budding society 
investment. Sums of £1,200 
each for both Terry and 
Shirley went into Bradford 
and Bingley's High Yield 
SAYE Plan with a further 
£1.000 going into BAB'S 
Prosperity Plan, a 10-year

Any gaps in this package? 
Some people might argue that 
more emphasis should be put 
on long-term protection such 
as permanent heahh cover. 

Against that there are two 
arguments. First, with so 
much capital to draw on, 
Terry will not run into finan- 
cial difficulty even if his 
income were to dry up. 

Secondly, with Marks & 
Spencer's known reputation as 
a caring employer, bis income 
would be secure even in the 


event of several months of 
disablement. The company 
had already demonstrated that 
by paying his wages during a 
four-month absence from 
work in 1985 when he was 
recovering from an Achilles 
tendon operation. 

In any event, Mr Mackay 
intends to review Terry’s 
financial situation at least 
every six months. There could 
be even more money to invest 
soon. Terry says he has come 
dose to winning the pools 
again just in the past few 
weeks.

Henderson European Income Trust 

The Land of Opportunity. 

WITH NO ONE BETTER TO TAKE 
YOU THERE. 

Europe, in terms of total return, promises some of 
the most rewarding investment opportunities. 

Henderson with probably London’s most 
experienced European investment team, now launches 
its European Income Trust. 

With falling inflation, European governments 
boosting local industry and, generally, a much broader 
participation in European stockmarkets by domestic and 
international investors, we believe now is the 
ideal time to create an income orientated fund. 

Henderson European Income Trust will be 
invested to provide an estimated initial gross annual 
income yield of 4.5% (11.10.86) 
phis an excellent expectation of 
capital growth. 

This trust complements 
Henderson’s existing 
European portfolio, from 
which the Henderson 
European Thtst, measured 
over the last ten years comes 
first for performance in comparison 
to other European trusts. (Planned Savings 1.10.86.) 

The experience that has produced this unrivalled 
record has determined the mix between high yielding 
equities, bonds and cash which will comprise the portfolio 
of this new Trust. 

Minim um holding is £500 or £25 per month 
through the Henderson Investment Builder 
Account. 

And of course, with no one better than Henderson 
to manage your European investment, there’s no better 
time to start than the present. 



LAUNCH PRICE OFFER OF 50p PER 
UNIT UNTIL 31st OCTOBER 1986 
To mark the launch of the Henderson European 
Income Trust, we are making a launch price offer of 50 
pence per unit until 31st October 1986. After the initial 
fixed price offer doses, units may be bought at the current 
daily price. 

You should remember that the price of units and 
the income from them can go down as well as up and 
you should regard any investment as long term. 


ADDITIONAL INFORMATION 

Distribution of income will be paid on 31a March and 30th September, the firs payment 
bring on 30th September 1987. The initial estimated gjross annual yield is 4.S< (11.10-86). 

Contract mates will be issued and unit certificates will be provided within right weeks 
of payment. To sell units endorse vour certificate and send h to the managers; payment

this tax on a disposal of units unless his total realised gains from all sources in the tax year 
amount to more than £6300 (1986/7). Prices and yields can be (bund daily in the national 
press.

The chairman’s debts 


ms Cnpd ft Gh, Jones Cnpd Hoose 
6 Beds Marks, London EC3A 7JQ. 


Dick Crook is widely known 
in the franchising indastry as 
Britain's leading franchise 
consoltant - advising franchi- 
sors, actual arprospective, on 
the best ways to set up and 
operate a franchise. 

He is chairman of an 
organization called the Fran- 
chise Consultants Associ- 
ation. which be says was set up 
to “sort out the good guys 
from the bad guys" in the 
franchise consultancy 
business. 

He is the driving force 
behind Franchise investors 
Ltd. This is financed by City 
institutions to invest in fran- 
chises. It is an affiliate of the. 
British Franchise Association. 

- Mr Crook is also known as 
the person who successfully 
launched the car hire firm. 
Budget Rent-a-Car in Europe. 
He used to appear on tele- 
vision advertising Midas ex- 
hausts. “Could I be a crook 
with a name like mine?” was, 
he says, the slogan he used. 

Documents obtained by 
The Times show that Mr 
Crook has been the chairman 


of two companies which went 
into liquidation with debts 
between them . of around 
£200,000. One of them was 
compulsorily wound up in the 
High Court in 1977. 

One of the companies was 
called Cater-Place Ltd, a busi- 
ness which Mr Crook says was 
involved in supplying fresh 
ground . coffee vending 
machines. 

The documents show that 
Cater-Place left debts of just 
above £134.000 and that 
approximately £65,000 of this 
was owed but never paid to 
trade creditors. 

The company was com- 
pulsorily wound up by one of 
its creditors on the order of Mr 
Justice Brightman in the High 
Court on July 25, 1977. 

Documents signed by Mr 
Crook indicate that he was the 
chairman of -the company, 
while he and his wife were the 
two directors. His wife is 
shown as tbe major 
shareholder. 

The documents indicate 
that, before Cater-Place was 
wound up, its business activ-

itics were transferred to an- 
other company of which Mr 
and Mrs Crook were also 
directors, and in which Mrs 
Crook was a shareholder. 

This company, called 
Tenderfine, was supposed to 
pay £250 a month for the 
privilege but, according to the 
documentation, paid the 
equivalent of only five 
monthly instalments. 

Discount Rent A Car was a 
car hire business set up by 
Mr.Crook’s wife in 1972, 
while Mr Crook himself be- 
came a director in January 
1973.’ 

On Friday, June 7, 1974, the 
company passed a resolution 
to go into liquidation. Mr 
Crook rijpied a copy of the 
resolution in his then capacity 
as chairman of the company. 

The documents show that 
tbe company had 67 un- 
secured creditors who between 
them were owed £67,860 and 
never paid. 

Mr Crook says in response:

R!p5 ®’ iteresLing answer to this 
uesuon. which perhaps does 
ot reflect too well on SFL: 
“Some of the original 
anchisees were friends of 


The shopkeeper who paid

•Hjj 


been called franchisees. They 
weren't “real’ franchisees. I'd 
say there were six of them 
whom I wouldn't really call 
franchisees.” 

Sperrings, based in 
Southampton, bad, by all 
reports, built up a very 
successful chain of conve- 
nience stores before moving 
into franchising. 

They started franchising, 
backed by £2.5 million of City 
money, in December 1983. To 
the outside world, at least, this 
was for real, and by July 1984, 
only eight months later, 
Sperrings was a full member of 
the British .Franchise 
Association. 

The common com plaints of 
the ex-franchisees, however, 
are that the company pro- 
vided inadequate manage- 
ment support and was too 
optimistic in its projections of 
profits and estimate of costs. 
The ex-franchisees also criti- 
cized the fact that while they 
were running unprofitable 
stores the company was 
receiving fat franchise fees. 

Dave Rubenis, for example, 
a former franchisee, claims his 
losses on his store were £7,000 
over 16 months, white during 
the same period he paid 
£25.465 hi franchise foes and 
contributions to a central 
advertising fund.

of SFL, says the company had

Martin Mendelsohn is 
lighly respected as the leading 
ranchisc lawyer in the UK. 
He was recently appointed the 
British Franchise 

Association's “legal 
xnsuliam" and is known to 
jive his services free to the 
industry on frequent 
occasions. 

He wrote the standard 
franchising textbook. The 
Guide to Franchising. He is 
also the author of Obtaining a 
Franchise, which was a guide 
published by the Department 
of Trade and Industry. 

Mr Mendelsohn was also a 
director and shareholder of a 
franchise company known as 
Idenucar (Holdings) Ltd, 
which went into receivership 
in February last year. The 
company has a substantial 
deficiency, although the re- 
ceiver. John Talbot, of the 
Arthur Andersen accountancy 
firm, was "not available for 
comment” when we tried io 
contact him. 

Thc Department of Trade 
and Industry, however, told us 
th3t the company through 
which ldenticar (Holdings) 
actually sold franchises in 
vehicle identification has been 
compulsorily wound up and 
has an estimated deficiency of 


“over £1 million". This com- 
pany was a wholly owned 
subsidiary and was simply 
called ldenticar Ltd. It was a 
full member of the British 
Franchise Association. 

Mr Mendelsohn was one of 
two founder directors of the 
parent company, being ap- 
pointed a director on October 
25. 1982. shortly before a 
group of City institutions put 
£350.000 into iL He was the 
company's solicitor and held a 
small shareholding of Z345 
shares. 

Sources within the franchis- 
ing industry say the institu- 
tions insisted that Mr 
Mendelsohn become a direc- 
tor as a condition of making 
their investment 

The funds were intended to 
be used to expand the 
franchising activities of 
ldenticar within the UK and 
to establish overseas licensed 
areas. 

Mr Mendelsohn told The 
Times Ibis week that as the 
company was a client of his be 
was constrained by his pro- 
fessional code of ethics from 
revealing much about its 
affairs. 

■ What he did say was; “I was 
a nonexecutive director of 
ldenticar (Holdings) Ltd. I 
was not a director of the 
operational company, 
ldenticar. I only attended 
meetings of the parent com- 
pany and I never asked for any 
equity in h. 1 took my shares 
in it at their par value. 

“I was not involved in the 
day-to-day running of the 
business. My professional po- 
sition as solicitor to the com- 
pany prevents me from saying 
more.”

to go through “a considerable 
learning curve in franchising", 
which is "a business in hs 
own" as distinct from naming 
one's own gftain of retail 
stores. 

He admits that, because of 
the learning process, the com- 
pany did make mistakes with 
site selection and choosing the 
right franchisees" — particu- 
larly ihe latter. Back-up was 
not what it should have been 
and “ there may have been a 
slight discrepancy " on some 
of the profit projections. 

But he denies that franchi- 
sees were used as guinea pigs 
to fine inre the SFL franchise. 

“We never accepted anyone 
who we thought would not 

‘We have not let 
these people down 9 

succeed," he says. "We made 
no money on what we got in 
franchise fees. These foes have 
in no way matched the very 
considerable backing we gave 
these franchisees. 

“We have accepted moral 
responsibility in a number of 
areas. At the end of the day we 
have not let these people 
down. The bottom line is that 
we have learned from our 
experiences." 

SFL says Mr Sperring, now 
has a thorough induction 
course and training course. He 


says that if a potential franchi- 
see looks as if he will not shape 
up SFL give him his £2,000 
deposit back. 

Site selection and manage- 
ment back-up have been im- 
proved, and those who stuck 
out the early months are now 
doing very well, he says. 

This is certainly borne out 
by the person who took over 
Mr Rubenis's store — he 
claims be is making handsome 
profits out of iL 

Mrs Janice Davis, who op- 
erated the Orpington franchise 
in Kent, says: 

“My small family company 
bought a Sperrings franchise 
m 1984. All I got for my 
association with this franchise 
was a criminal record and a 
dent in ray company's capital 


“1 started trading from a site 
in Orpington, in the London 
borough of Bromley. 
Sperrings advertises one of its 
merits as site selection. They 
omitted to tell me that the 
local authority in Bromley 
strictly enforces the 1950 
Shops Acl 

“in May 1985 charges 
brought against us by the 
Bromley authorities were 
heard at Bromley magistrates* 
court. There were so many 
summonses — I think it was 26 
altogether. Half were brought 
against the company, as occu- 
pier of the premises, and the 


rest against myself and my 
husband personally. It was a 
nightmare. We had never been 
told that the criminal law was 
involved. 

“Since Sperrings were not 
the occupiers of the premises, 
they could not be held respon- 
sible for the offences. 

“Both the company and 
ourselves were found guilty as 
charged. But the magistrates 
were very understanding, and 
imposed no fines. These could 
have amounted to £26,000. 
Instead, they granted a con- 
ditional discharge, which was 
a great relief to us personally, 
but not for the business. 

“As occupier of the 
premises, the company was 

Company took 
legal action 

obliged to ensure that no 
funner illegal trading took 
place. This meant that trading 
had to be restricted in the 
evenings and all day on Sun- 
day. We had to cordon off 
certain areas of the store, and 
forgo sales of the more profit- 
able lines, such as video hire 
and other non-food items, it 
was a disaster. 

“But the nature of a fran- 
chise contract is that, for 
better or for worse, the 
franchisee contracts to pay full 
franchise fees to the franchi- 


sor, whether the business is 
profitable or not. In the finan- 
cial year to June 1985 my 
company made a net loss of 
above £20^000. In the" same 
year, we paid net franchise 
fees of over £28,000. 

“My company took legal 
action against Sperrings, and 
rescinded the franchise agree- 
ment I am very relieved that 
my company was able to get 
out of this franchise. But as 
everyone knows, lawyers and 
litigation don't come cheap. I 
bad to pay £12,000 in legal 
bills." 

According to Robert 
Sperring . chairman of 
Sperrings Franchising Ltd, the 
company is restricted in what 
it can say about this particular 
case under the terms of the 
legal settlement that took 
place. However, he does dis- 
pute the losses that Mrs Davis 
says she made — much turns 
on the construction of the 
accounts. 

He says the store, which is 
now company-owned, op- 
erates both within the Shops 
Acl which Mrs Davis dis- 
putes, and profitably, now. He 
also says legal bills could have 
been much less as the settle- 
ment proposed was not 
materially different from that 
which was reached many 
months later. 

With regard to the Shops 
Act problem, he says: “When 
we first bought the store the 
authority certainly did not 
enforce the Shops Act as 
rigidly as they subsequently 
did."

A New Unit Trust Investing for Growth 
in Financial Services Companies 


F RAMUNGTON Financial Fond will aim 
for maximum capital growth through 
investment in the most interesting sector 
of the moment: financial services com- 
panies throughout the world. 

Financial services are going through a period 
of rapid growth and change, thus creating an 
important investment opportunity In this country, 
the securities industry is changing dramatically, 
and new legislation is rapidly enlarging the scope of 
profitable operation for banks, insurance companies 
and fund management companies. 

More generally, international de-regulation and 
the decline in world-wide inflation significantly 
improves the prospects for financial services opera- 
tions everywhere. Framlington Financial Fund will 
aim to mala* the most of itee opportunities, whether 
in the UK., the US.A., Europe, or the Far East. 

THE FRAMLINGTON APPROACH 
Our special style is to concentrate on smaller 
companies, trying to identify those with really good 
growth prospects before the rest of the market 
recognises their promise, aiming for good long-term 
capital growth performance. The results speak for 
themselves. 

OUR RECORD 

Framlington has an outstanding long-term growth 
record. The average annual compound rate of 
growth in the priceof unite (on an offer-to-bid basis) 
of each of our capital growth funds-between launch 
and 1st October 1986 was asjfollows: . 

. Fund . .Launched Growth 

Capital.. Jan 69 +15.1%p.a.. 

International Growth Oct 76 +25.3% p.a. 

American & General Apr 78' +19.0% p.a. 
American Turnaround Oct 79 +22.4% p jl 

■ Recovery' Apr 82 ■ • +24.7% p.a. 

Japan & General Fro 84 +26. 1% p.a. 

European Feb 86 +45.6% p^a. 

Every one of these Framlington funds has out- 
performed the FT All-Share Index, the Dow- Jones 
Industrial Average and the Standard and Poors 
Composite Index.

receive less than £85 a week. 

So how does PHI protection 
work? Policyholders becom- 
ing disabled through illness or 
ipjury receive a replacement 
income equal to a percentage 
of previous earnings. That 
proportion is normally pegged 
at 75 per cent. Many com- 
panies also impose a maxi- 
mum cadi payout, a factor 
high wage-earners need to 
watch for. 


Benefit can be 
more than salary 


Most companies provide 
support fora while; some have 
group PHI policies to cover 
employees. For most people, 
however, a long period off 
work means relying on savings 
and meagre state benefits.

Premiums paid, do not at- 
tract tax relief but the benefit 
itself is not taxable until 
received for a full fiscal year. 
The - effect of this ' “tax 
holiday” can be that the 
policyholder receives more 
than his or her previous salary 
for up to two calendar years. 
Thereafter, tire taxman is 
somewhat less generous. PHI 
benefits are classed as un- 
earned income and . taxed as 
such. 

More than 30 companies 
now provide individual PHL 
Unfortunately most impose a 
mass of different policy word- 
ings -and int erpre tations. But, 
basically, the cost of cover 
depends on your occupation, 
age, sex and the period you are 


Most companies split 
occupations Into three or four 
classes, each with a certain 
level of health risk. Most 
professional and office staff 
are seen as low-risk, most 
manual workers as high- risk , 
-The difference hi premiums 
between the two can be any- 
where between 10 percent and 
200 - per cent, so shopping 
around is highly advisable:. ■ 

Dockers and steeplejacks 
are among those lucky to get 
cover at any cost Equally, if 
you have a penchant for 
dangerous sports you can 
expect a cool response. 

The difference in the price 
of cover fora man aged 30 and 
a man aged 40 can be as much 
as 60 per cent. The gap grows 
still wider for female 
proposers. 

Women of any age, how- 
ever, normally pay consid- 
erably more than men. A 
preminm loading of 50 per 
cent usually applies and only a 
handful of companies impose 
a lower loading. The principle 
of higher rates for women was 
tested in the High Court in 
1985 when it was held that the 
premium loading on PHI 
policies for women was not in 
breach of the Sex Discrimina- 
tion Act 1975. 

Langham Life is alone in 
actually charging women less. 


being able to return to work in 
only a reduced capacity. Many 
compares will cover you 
against this possibility so that, 
your income does not fen as a 
result. Benefit may also be 
inflation-proofed. 

With all these variants, the 
cost of cover can differ enor- 
mously. Annual -premiums 
range between £50 and £500. 
A' 30-year-old professional 
man should pay no more than 
£90 a year, his 40-year-old 
colleague £30 more. 

It should be remembered 
that not all claims will be 
accepted. Intentional selftn- 
jury, war, alcohol, drug and 
pregnancy claims are almost 
sure to be excluded, though 
pregnancy complications are 
viewed more sympathetically. 


Job-changers should inform 
their PHI insurer rather than 
risk cover being withdrawn. 
Jet-setters should also study 
the . policy restrictions on 
travel.

The front lme 


insurance battle 


A lot of people believe PHI 
could be about to come out of 
the shadows. Allied Dunbar 
has even published Ease and 
Dis-Eases, a guide to good 
health, on the strength of 
growing interest in retirement 
planning and -PHI. The di- 
visional director David 


Insurance companies are be- 
ing ac cu s ed of a head-in-the- 
sand attitude to the problems 
of inner city businesses in 
obtaining insurance cover. 

Many businesses, in areas 
such as Brixton in south 
London and Handsworth in 
Birmingham, are having to 
face the prospect of relocation 
or in some cases • closure, 
because of what they describe 
as an unavailability of 
satisfactory cover. 

Jo Hall, a press officer for 
Lambeth Council, which takes 
in the Brixton area, said that 
talks with local traders re- 
vealed they were being asked 
to pay “exorbitant premiums, 
in some cases up to 600 per 
cent higher than before and so 
high as to make them virtually 
impossible**. 

Tech-Semco, a hi-fi servic- 
ing company, feds it was 
forced to move its head office 
out of Brixton to Wembley 
because h could not secure 
satisfactory cover from insur- 
ers. Lee Marks, the managing 
director, said the company, 
which had operated in Bnxton 
for 10 years, had to move 
because its insurers refused to 
renew the insurance cover 
after the unrest ofl 981 and 
1985.

weren't prepared to renew 
even on that basis," Mr Maries 


said. “They only gave us 
temporary cover when our 
policy ran out at the beginning 
of March if we could prove 
that we had other premises to 
move into." 

He said many companies 
were trading in Brixton with- 
out any insurance cover. “If 
there is another riot, they will 
be ruined." 

Lambeth Council has now 
joined with councils in Bir- 
mingham and Leeds to form 
an Insurance Working Group 
which is investigating the 
problems of obtaining ade- 
quate insurance cover in inner 
erty areas. 

The group has had one 
meeting with the Association 
of British Insurers, which 
represents more of the UK 
general insurance market, but 
Jo Hall said foe association 
denied that any problems 
existed. 

A spokeswoman for foe 
association said that the inner 
city insurance problems had 
not come about as a result of 
the riots, but because of the 
overall level of theft and 


Britain's largest property in 
surer. He was adamant the 
his company aid not operates 
system of rdd-tining (where 
areas are marked out as being 
no-go insurance areas). 

Insurers fed strongly that 
they should ndt be seen as an 
extension of the social ser- 
vices. Help for the inner cities 
should come from central or 
local government, not from 
insurance companies, al- 
though they say they are 
willing to play their part wifo 
staff secondments and. in 
some cases, the provision of 
surplus premises. 

The Insurance Working 
Group, under the chairman-]

Bore, chairman ot* 
Birmingham's economic*- 
development committee, is! . 
putting the final touches to a; /.. 
survey on the insurance prob-; 
lems of inner cfy businesses; : . 
in Leeds. Birmingham and ; 
Lambeth, which it will present Tfj 

to the Association of British v 
Insurers. • r ~ 

Jo Hall said that if the>V 
association does not respond; *

"For instance.” he said, 
withholding tax has been 


withdrawn from US Treasury

accepted UK-based funds 
would still suffer the same UK 
taxes. 

Meanwhile at Hill Samuel, 
the managers are proposing to 
merge the Gilt Income. Gilt 
Growth and Fixed Interest 
funds into a new income fund 
investing in a wider range of 
stocks, including company 
convertible and preference 
shares. 

Hill SamueTs gilt manager. 
Phil Be van. said introducing 
this equity element to the fund 
should take his company 
higher up the performance 
tables if the merger is ap- 
proved. The accompanying 
table shows that convertible 
and preference shares have 
topped the fixed interest in- 
come tables over one and five 
years but these funds do take 
on a higher risk. 

Another point is that Hill 
Samuel intends to give up the 


Section 60 status of its gilts 
funds. This relates to Section 
60 of the 1980 Finance Act. 
under which gilt funds were 
allowed to be set up with 
special tax concessions. Taxes 
on dealings were lowered but 
when the Chancellor upped 
the taxes on any interest 
accruing on gibs to 45 per cem 
for all invrstors except those 
with less than £5.000 invested 
in gilts to stop bond-washing, 
the concessions disappeared. 

Hill Samuel now wants to 
revert to being taxed at 
corporation tax rates of 35 per 
cent on any interest accruing. 

Mr Bevan believes the 
change in status would enable 
the new fund to deal more 
actively. But a more sceptical 
manager at one of the very 
largest unit trust groups com- 
ments that the limits were 
probably a blessing in disguise 
because recently the gih mar- 
ket has not been an attractive 
place in which to trade.

If more managers follow the 
example of Ganmore and Hill 
Samuel, ihe old-style gilt fund 
could be replaced by broader- 
based funds. The potential 
returns win be increased but 
so will the risks. 

Even so. the new funds 
could face an uphill For 
instance, even the money 
invested with Foreign and 
Colonial’s Fixed Interest in- 
come fund fell by nearlv half 
when one client withdrew £1.5 
million at around the time of 
the CGT tax changes, accord- 
ing to F&Cs Henry Hum. 

Bui the Chancellor's actions 
earlier in the year, especially 
in March, questioned whether 
gilt unit trusts are really 
necessary. Rodney Parkins, of 
personal finance consultants 
Mercer Grant Simmons, 
thinks not 

Gilt unit trusts, believes Mr 
Parkins, alter the nature of gilt 
investment. Unit prices can go 
up or down, whereas with 
directly invested gilts, al- 
though the values can go up or 
down, at least the redemption 
value is secure. 

In addition, some gilt unil 
trusts are subject to 5 per cent 
initial and 0.75 per cent 
annual charges. These are 
easier to justify on. say. equity 
funds but harder on low-risk 
gilts. 

An individual can buy a gilt 
cheaply from a stockbroker or 
the Post Office. But Mr 
Parkins explains decisions 
need to be taken on interest 
rate movements before buy- 
ing. When rates fall the value 
or gilts should rise as the 
interest-earning element, the 
yield, of the gilt falls too. 
When rates rise, values fall. 
The effect is not so pro- 
nounced on gilts nearing 
redemption. 

For the record, interest rates 
remained static over the sum- 
mer. and so for that matter did 
the gilt market and although 
the underlying trend was 
downwards there were fears 
recently of rate rises which 
were reflected m gilt yields. 
Fears about future inflation 
prospects also pushed index- 
linked rates upwards.

V 'V'ere’s another chance to introduce an

JL Aphis a 8tmm taring element 
of risk to your portfolio - with the 
Simon & Coates Special Situations Trust. 

So yon can decide whether tins Trust 
is the right investment for yon, here are 
straightforward answers to some 
questions yon may have: 

Who are Chase Manhattan 
Fund Managers? 


In April 1986 the Chase Manhattan 
Corporation recruited the Stock Market 
expertise of hi ghj y-respected British firms 
Laurie, M2 bank & Co. and Simon & Coates 
to form a new organisation - Chase Man- 
hattan Securities. As a result of this take- 
over Simon & Coates Fund Managers (the 
o riginal fund managers') are now Chase 
Manhattan Fund Managers. We believe th,e 
new organisation is the ideal amalgam to 
maximise any opportunities created by de- 
velopments in the London Stock Marker. 

Of course, Chase Manhattan Fund 
Managers benefits from the financial com- 
mitment and international contacts Of Chase 
Manhat tan Corporation, the holding company 
for onenf the largest banks in the US. 


What are we inviting you to invest in? 


The Simon & Coates Special Situations 
Trust is a small, aggressively managed 
unit trust! with a current value of 
about £4 J million. 



What is the Trnstfe 
inv e stm ent philosophy? 

Our fund managers combine British Slock 
Market expertise with American dynamism. 
They concentrate on three areas - smaller, 
higher risk companies, special situations - 
including takeovers, and new issue activity. 

A maximum of 25% of the fund may be in- 
ll vested in the Unlisted Securities Market, and 
V there is some Traded Options activity. 

What is the Trusts investment breakdown?

What is the Trusts performance record? _ 

The Trust is the UKk fifth best-performing Special Situa- 
tions Trust over the last 12 months (Source: Money Manage- 
ment September 1986). Although it has yet to celebrate its r 
second birthday (22 October I986J, the Trust* Unit Price 
has more than doubled, rising from the initial offer price of 
25p to a bid price of 558p on 26 September 1986, a rise of 
125% since the launch, allowing for reinvestment of income. 
The conent yield is 0.72%. 

As with all other Unit Trusts the price of the units in tire 
Special Situations Trust - and the income from them — can - 
go down as well as up, although the above-average level of 
risk has yielded a higher than average return.

( INVESTMENT) 

Come home, all is forgiven. 
The financial institutions of 
Britain are opening out their 
ever-loving arms to re-em- 
brace the prodigal investors 
who tried and failed to acquire 
a stake in the Trustee Savings 
Bank flotation. 

They have ta The banks, 
buiklmg societies and unit 
trust groups are lining up in a 
huge scramble to attract the 
cadi that the TSB just could 
not take. 

More than £4 bflhon win 




have been dropped through 
the letterboxes of Britain this 
week. About five million peo- 
ple applied for shares, and 
only i. 1 5 million had the good 
fortune to receive an 
allocation. 

Of the public, only priority 
customers seeking 200 or 400 
Shimw? had their u pplfcatinns 
met in full. 

The rest wfll have either a 
letter of allotment plus a 
cheque for the balance — on 
average around three-quarters 


of the oiginal sum subsc ri bed 
for — or they will have the 
same old cheque returned, 
uncashed, if they have been 
unsuccessful 

We have £4 billion to spend 
and the institutions know it 
Just for this weekend all that 
money will be sloshing 
around, unspent, looking for a 
good home. 

There is no shortage of 
welcoming hearths if we are to 
judge from the breast-beating 
in the advertisements. This 
weekend win be a record for 
many newspapers’ personal 
finance sections, and not neo- 
essarily because the advertis- 
ers like the way the 
newspapers ate written. 

So what should you do with 
that cheque turning to mould 
in your pocket? That is an 
impossible question, as there 
are half a million people who 
buy The Times, every one 
with his or her own personal 
preddictions. 

It is, however, possible to 
examine how you might eval- 
uate the options. 

Investment is about risk. If 
you are prepared to lose your 
money you might make some 
— at least that used to be the 
standard investm en t advice. 

To some extent it still holds 
good. If you are looking for 
substantial capital gains, you 
wfll have to take a risk. 

But today we are in an 
extraordinarily favourable 
investment climate for fixed 
interest deposits. This takes 
some of the steam out of the 
argument that profit means 

As price inflation is around 
2.5 per cent and building 
societies are offering about 6 
per cent more than that after 
tax, depositors can fed con- 
fident that their money is 
actually gaining in value. 

Moreover, they have a high 
degree of safety. The last time 
money gained value over the 


cost of living in this way was 
during the Depression, when 
inflation was negative and 
Interest rates were a couple of 
points. 

But anyone who put money 
into a UK unit trust five yean 
ago would have done hand- 
somely. The index has more 
than tripled since then* 

Of course, investors would 
have deserved their handsome 
capita! gains. They took their 
courage in both hands and 
their cheque book in one, and 
invested. At the time there 



was no guarantee that they 
would win through. 

Bernard Reed, of the Stock 
Exchange Options Develop- 
ment Group, says: “The small 
investor is looking at a spec- 
trum of risk. If he wants no 
risks be should glut his money 
in a bank or a building society. 

“At the other end of the 
spectrum he can go into 
options and perhaps treble the 
capital quickly, though he 
might lose everything. 

“The gradations in between 
include shares and unit trust 
investments.” 

How much of a risk are you 
prepared to take? Before cut- 
ting out the coupons and 

yOTr^^ffyou^f bear the 
thought of losing a third, or a 
half, or all your money. 

If you can, it is speculative 
capital or you have a serious 
gambling problem. If the pros- 


pect of losing it all appals and 
frightens you. or if you happen 
to think that most share 
markets are on the way down 
and cash deposit is the best 
place, then look to the budd- 
ing societies. 

The Leamington Spa has a 
snappy little line: TSB to LSB 
(Leamington Spa Bond). This 
account offers 9 per cent net 
for a minimum £2,000 
commitment over one year, 
while £10.000 sums attract a 
handsome rate of 9. 75 per cent 
over six months. 

The Scarborough and 
Nationwide Societies have 
waived their rules in the hope 
of attracting would-be TSB 
subscribers back to the invest- 
ment flock. 

Cheques issued for purchase 
of TSB shares will, if returned, 
receive the foil amount of 
interest for the period when 
the money was technically 
withdrawn. 

This device has attracted 
some criticism in the industry. 
A Halifax spokesman said that 
the liquidity to honour the 
cheques had to be paid for, 
and that someone was sub- 
sidizing the failed TSB 
subscriber. 

Nationwide, however, ve- 
hemently denies that other 
members are suffering. 

“The only cost to the society 
is the drawing of the cheque,” 
says a Nationwide spokes- 
man. “The society earns in- 
terest on the money up until 
the time the cheque is 
cashed.” 

* If you decide you want a 
stock market investment, one 
of the best ways is a unit trust 

Of course, 'you lose 5 per 
cent of your money in initial 
charges, along with 1 per cent 
annually in most cases, but 
unit trusts have done very well 
in the past Past performance, 
as unit trust groups rightly 
point out is. however, no 
guarantee of future gain. 

The TSB itself is launching 
a new unit trust TSB British 
Growth, which will invest in 
large and small Briitsh com- 
panies trading both at home 
and in overseas markets. 

The bank is also launching a 
campaign to remind the 3.15 
million what a sound invest- 
ment they have made. This is 
presumably all pan of the plan 
to stop large numbers of 


investors selling more or less 
straight away, or “sragpng” 
the tone. 

FAC has launched a unit 
trust i which will invest, in 
financial institutions the 
world ^ver. • 

The group made a play of 
the tad that it would be 
investing in the TSB, and 
consequently might provide a 
second-best option for “foiled

Naturally, tfe proceeds will

buy a share . or an option to 
buy or sell a ' share. But you 
must be prepared to lose all 
vour money, and you prob- 
ably will unless you are an 
expert. 

No one can tell you how to 
spend your money. You must 
follow your own inclinations 
and tastes. The adverts and 
“bargains” will scream at you 
in the newspapers and. on 
radio and television as never 
before this weekend. 

But despite all the financial 
chest beating it is up to you 
whether you take a risk, or

this field, along with Bob

Fidelity International with 
funds to benefit several 
named charities through the 
Charities Aid Foundation. 

The latter is itself a charity. 
One covenanted deed to this 
foundation allows you to 
spread your gift among several 
charities. 

Giving efficiently to chil- 
dren or other relatives is 
helped by knowing a couple of 
useful rules. In your lifetime 
you can make gifts up to 
£3,000 and any number of 
smaller ones up to £250 in any 
one year. You can also bring 
forward £3,000, if unused, 
from the previous year. 

The gins do not have to be 
reported unless the transfers 
exceed £10,000 a year or the 
total exceeds £40,000. These 
are reporting limits. But you 
can still pass on a total of 
£71,000 without incurring any 
tax penalty if you die soon 
after making foe gift. Cu- 
mulative totals of more than 
£71,000 are taxed on a reduc- 
ing scale if foe giver dies 
within seven years ... a great 
inducement to healthy living. 

Another efficient way of 
giving is through National 


Bribes win bring

Savings products. Most of 
these can be held by individ- 
uals, including children, of 
any age. For someone paying 
no or little tax, they are a. 
useful gift, as are gifts bought 
through the National Savings 
Register with dividends paid 
gross toarrive on a birthday or 
other special day. 

NS certificates are useful for 
taxpayers of a forgetful nature 
or for wives — until tax laws 
are changed — as the certifi- 
cates do not need to be entered 
on income tax. Premium 
Bonds for children under 16 
can be held by parents, guard- 
ians or grandparents. 

After tax considerations, 
comes “tat", a mnemonic for

Although few people give and 
never count foe cost, all are 
expected to eschew reward in

Generosity was hard work for Saint Bob - for mere mortals there are other problems 


Revenue and can incur pen- 
alties for both the giver and 
the one who receives. 

Thus gifts such as a house 
which the giver continues to 
occupy wfll bear inheritance 
tax. A solicitor or accountant 
who draws up a covenant 
without charge might be as- 
sumed to be doing this in foe 
expectation of future custom, 
and merit a rap on foe 
knuckles at least. 

And be who gives and he 


who takes are in double 
trouble where bribes are con- 
cerned. The crucial distinction 
between a gift and a bribe is 
the dement of secrecy. The 
more public foe offering, foe 
less likely is it to receive 
scrutiny under the Prevention 
of Corrnpnon Acts. Gifts 
made solely for foe purpose of 
tax avoidance, too, are 
vulnerable. 

Lastly, efficient giving 
needs tact. The really des- 


perate poor do not mind from 
whom their succour comes. 
Those still dinging to their 
independence do. A saintly 
person explained to one old 
lady, needing, but protesting 
against getting help: “If you 
don't practise foe virtue of 
humility, I can't practise the 
virtue of charity." Those 
words neatly sum up foe art of 
giving.

MAKING MONEY MAKE MONEY 


When Is The Best Time To Invest 
In A Successful Company? 


Or Here? 



It’s sometimes hard to remember that 
Habitat was once just a one-off store in 
London’s Fulham Road. 

ThatSaatchi and Saatchi was a four- 
man creative consultancy as little time ago 
as 1970. 

And that Amstrad was started with 
die preposterous idea that a British 
company could make money from 
electronics. 

Yet look at them now. All hugely 
successful businesses that have rewarded 
investors who shared their faith with 
hanefeome returns, to put it mildly. 

So what of todays embryonic 
companies driven by good ideas and 
aggressive managements? 

Will they reward the farsighted 


investor with equally lucrative returns? 

And will it really prove more profit- 
able than purring money behind bigger 
businesses? 

A recent stud)’ by Professor Paul 
Marsh and Dr Elroy Dimson of the 
London Business School shows that port- 
folios of small company shares have out- 
performed portfolios invested in blue chip 
companies over the longer term. 

Which is whv we, at Prudential, are 
launching our brand new Holbom Small 
Companies "IhisL 

Its ainu to achieve capital growth by 
investing in small companies, mainly in 
rheUK. 

And although the Holbom Small 
Companies Trust is a new idea, spotring 


winners is something Prudential has 
made a habit of in the past. 

Every year we investigate hundreds 
of companies and their managements. 
This enables us to identify which young 
businesses are most likely to become big 
businesses, well ahead of the market 

Of course, you must remember that 
die price of units and the income from 
them can go down as well as up. 

Bur from past success we feel pretty 
confident about the future. 

If you’d like a stake in our new 
Holbom Small Companies Trust, 
nothing could be easier 

To buy units at the initial price of 
50p just complete the coupon. 

Oryou can buy diem directly over the 
phone by ringing our LinkLine number 
below, between 9 am and 5 pm weekdays 
or weekends. Abu need only pay when 
you receive the contract note. This offer 
must dose on the I7th October 1986. 

Admittedly our Holbom Small 
Companies Trust is still in its infancy but 
as we’ve already pointed out, isn’t chat 
the best time to invest?

Some hope, 
but it’s not 


a gusher 


( OIL SHARES ) 


If you want to see a sad 
investor, find one who put all 
his money into energy shares 
about a year ago. While all 
around him were making 
merry as world stock markets 
climbed ever upwards — with 
a few fits and starts in places — 
fens of the energy sector were 
subjected to an almost never- 
ending stream, of bad news. 


The chief harbinger of 
doom was, of course, the oil 
-price. As the supply continued 
to pull further away from 
demand, the price could only 
go down. However, few could 
have expected it to plunge so 
far, so fast. A barrel from the 
North Sea Brent field, worth 
$30 a year ago, changed hands 
at less thanjlO in July. If we 
got a mild winter and little 
extra demand from industry, 
said the pundits, a $5 barrel 
was on the cards. 


However, just as the gurus 
spoke, the oil price started to 
g)B up «pin — life has a 

charming habit of proving 
them wrong. This was largely 

thanks to unusual unity from 
the moguls in Opec, the 
Organization of Petroleum 
Exporting Countries. Having 
finally awoken from dreaming 
of the days when oil was $40 a 
barrel and they could afford to 
buy a London hotel every 
hour, the 13 Opec ministers 
stopped the rot by agreeing to 
restrict production. 

The markets took the mes- 
sage — underlined by the 
ministers at another Opec 
meeting in Geneva this week 


— and a barrel of Brent is now 

- trading at around $i4. 

So does this mean now is 
the time to examine the 
attractions of energy unit 
trusts? If you decide to take a 
peek, you will at least expend 
little energy looking for them, 
because there are not many 
about. 

The awful energy market 
has deterred management 
companies from promoting 
energy-related funds and you 
will find no more than half a 
dozen such trusts — so few that 
they do not even have a 
category of their own and they 
have to be lumped with 
commodity funds to take up a 
decent amount of space in the 
price tables. 

If you are interested, do not 
look for anything too 
spectacular because fireworks 
are most unlikely, according 
to Peter Holland, who man- 
ages the County Energy Trust 
run by National Westminster. 

He says: “I don’t think 
there's a lot of upside in 
energy shares. To makea great 
deal of money we would need 
to see the oil price go to 520- 
plus and stay there. That’s 
unlikely. We think 515-S20 is 
a reasonable expectation to 
take over the next six 
months.” 

However, he feels energy 
shares do have attractions as 
the stock market boom wanes. 
There they stand, depressed 
and unloved, but often 
representing companies with 
solid assets, high dividend 
yields and strong cash flows. 
The shares might just catch 
the eye of investors who take 
profits in the high-flying sec- 



s 


J- 

■ 


Men of decision: the Opec ministers, whose deliberations can fhc prices and investors' fortunes 


tors now beginning to look a 
little pricey. 

The County portfolio is 
strong on quality with invest- 
ments in blue-chip companies 
whose fortunes nevertheless 
are strongly influenced by the 
oil price: They include such 


One fond with a 
34 per cent rise 


wildcat oil prospectors of the 
sort which got dozens of 
Texan banks into trouble 
when the oil price slumped, or 
the giant energy companies 
such as Dome of Canada 
which spend more time talk- 
ing to their bankers to re- 
arrange their huge debts than 
actually looking for oiL 


quality "majors” which not 
only explore and produce oil 
but have “downstream" op- 
erations that refine it into 
petrol, chemicals and other 
products and can therefore use 
any fell in price to their own 
advantage. 


famous names as Shell, 
Burmab Oil, BP, Chevron, 
Exxon and MobiL It also 
features diversified energy* 
related companies such as I Cl 
and Rio-Tinto Zinc, power 
supply utilities and a few 
companies supplying services 
to the energy industry, which 
Mr Holland expects to show 
recovery as the oil price trends 
upwards. 

What are absent from Mr 
Holland's list are speculative 


Mr Holland says it is no 
good getting the energy price 
trend right if all you invest in 
is a company for which the 
only benefit is that bankruptcy 
is held at bay a little longer. 


Concentrating 
on quality again 


One man who managed to 
get most things right in the 
past year was Alec Callender, 
of Edinburgh investment 
managers Baillie Gifford. His 
energy trust rose 34.4 per cent 
on an offer-to-bid basis in the 
year to October I, better even 
than the FT 30-Share Index. 


Like Mr Holland, his -secret 
of success was to invest in the 


Mr Callender's tiny fund 
also reaped great benefits from 
investing in a ■ Japanese 
electricity utility. The utlity 
benefited from the falling oU 
price - which plummeted 
even faster in local terms as 
the yen rose — and saw its 
finance bills cut with dropping 
interest rates. Just to add icing 
on the cake, the strong yen 
meant more pounds for Mr 
Callender when he sold his 
investment 


With the oil price edging bp " 
again, he Callender is now . 
extending his exposure to pure : 
oil producers, . but is again .{y 
sticking to quality, avoiding : 
the “Greedy Gulch Drilling ~ 
Company” operations which * 
have a nasty habit of drilling 
all the dry rock strata to be * 
found in America’s oilfields. . 

For those funds which put * 
most of then- clients’ , funds . 
into producing companies, r 
1986 has been a tale of wpe. . 7 
The Target Energy Fund,--, 
which lost 30 per cent of its 
customers’ money in the year 
to September, will not even 
make it into 1987, having just - 
merged with its sister 
Commodity Fund. As the pair ' 
were respectively the third -7 
and fourth worst performing 7 _ 
unit trusts in the land, it can 9 
only be hoped that the sum -7 
proves to be greater than the 
parts. . -. . ; : :

A critical case 


The legal aid system has had its fair share of 
critics. Barristers have raised objections to the 
low fee scale on which certain members of the 
Bar are remunerated. Solicitors have their 
reservations, and now the National Consumer 
Council (NCC) has its say. 

The NCC criticizes the recommendations of 
a team from the Lord Chancellor’s Depart- 
ment and the Treasury that advice centres 
should play a for more significant role in 
advising on civil disputes. 

The NCC believes solicitors should con- 
tinue to deal with the first interviews in 
divorce and personal injury suits, but says that 
advice centres tend to know for more than 
solicitors about claims for welfare benefits, 
landlord and tenant disputes and small claims 
in the county court — anything under £500 
goes to informal arbitration in private^ 
normally with the registrar as arbitrator). 

Slowly but surely is the NCCs recom- 
mended route. It claims that at present advice 
centres are not equipped to take on the work 
and predicts the upgrading of advice centres 
would take 10 to 15 years. 

“The present legal aid system must not be 
ditched without something better being put in 
its place,” says the NCC chairman, Michael 
Montague. “Above all, we urge caution and 
time for full debate by all concerned before 
radical changes are made.” 

One particularly interesting NCC recom- 
mendation is the establishment of an indepen- 
dent legal council to set standards for all 
lawyers, investigate complaints and ensure 
basic competence. One wonders what the Bar 
Council and Law Society will have to say 
about that jyjg 


Insurers’ fears 


Life assurance companies intend spending as: 
much as £10 mfTK nn os a television and press . 
advertising c a mp ai gn to convince the public at . 
the merits of Heating through independent 
insurance intermediaries. 

The move is being spearheaded by die bin 
Scottish mutual life offices, including Standard. •• 
LiTe and Scottish Widows, as well as English 
offices, mefnding Clerical Medical. and Nor - 
wich Union. The of the new... 

group i ng , which officially does nbtexirt yet, is.-- 
Frank AttriU, of Scottish Widows. He hfr. 
reluctant to go into peat detail yet beyond ■ 
saying that if agreement jin principle can be.j 
reached among thejampanfes concerned, ait 
approach wonU then he made to organizations: 
representing investment advisers and insur* !/. 
ance brokers, such as FIMBRA and BIBA, to - - 
ensure that the pbns of the life companies ang - - 
intermediaries were not in conflict. 

Traditionally, the mutual fife offices, which- 
control around 35 per cent of British life 
premium income, have got- their business - 
through independent intermediaries rather 
tfaan tied sales forces.' They fear toe propose? 
Financial Services Act will make it more 
difficult for these intermediaries to stay in 
business ami could lead to a drastic cot in 
market share for the mutuds. 

BiD Pfoodfoot, Scottish Amicable’s chief 
executive, said tins week: “If polarization 
comes about as a result of the legislation, we 
wonkl pot a substantial part of oar annual £3 
nri&lon advertising budget into this campaign.” 

The mutual offices are also considering 
regional roadshows and a seminar for inter- 
mediaries at the Wembley Conference Centre.

FAMILY MONEY/9 


Shape of loans to come 


J&e Halifax, Britain’s 
®^8®st building society 
announced this week 
its plans for 1987 and 
jwyond. MARTIN 
BAKER analyses the 
prospects fora 

fradftSonal indostry in the 

throes of radical 
change and asks what It 
means for the 

consumer 

9 Building societies are set for a 
oig sang ail of their own next 
year. The Building Societies 
Act. which received Royal 
Assent in . July, comes into 
force next January. 

There are two schools of 
nought on the legislation, 
perhaps it offers societies the 
ve ty^t pastures of new finan- 
cial freedoms by permitting 
them to compete on equal 
tenns with the banks. Or does 
u provide the banks with the 
opportunity to break the 
building societies for exactly 
thesame competitive reasons? 

The building societies are 
aware of the threat from the 
^ banks and have, therefore, 
••chosen to tread cautiously. 
Enthusiasms and fears are, of 
course, spread unevenly 
throughout the industry. And 
the balance of confidence will 
reflect the services provided 
next year. 

No society will be exploiting 
all its new freedoms at once. 
Every one win select hs 
particular favourite and nur- 
ture it carefully. 

Current account banking, 
for example, is far from 
universally popular. The Hali- 
fax will not be challenging the 
banks directly in this field. “If 
at all possible we want to enter 
money transmission on a 
% plastic card rather than a 
paper basis," said a 
spokesman. 

There are no prizes for 
guessing why: “The banks 
have generations of experi- 
ence with cheque accounts 
and a massive high street 
presence. If we were to com- 
pete with the Barclays and the 
Nat Wests in that area it would 
require massive capital 
investment-” 

But the Nationwide sees the 
provision of a cheque guar- 
antee card as a key new service 
for 1987. 

Nationwide regards the fact 
that it will pay interest to its 
cheque account customers as a 
crucial competitive edge and 
appears unafraid of the ex- 
pense of handling cheques or 
^ihe expertise of the banks. 

Most big societies ajr un- 
certain which way io~1iuhp. 
Should they take on the banks, 
or do as the Halifax is doing 
and “try to miss out on a stage 
of money transmission which 
we-ltelieve will be obsolete in 
20 years’ time"? We shall see. 


Plastic is certainly becom- 


ing increasingly popular. The 
Halifax has developed hs own 
system of cash transmission, 
but the other societies have 
pooled resources and come up 
with two rival cash networks, 
UNK and MATRIX. 

The advantages of sharing 
capital costs are obvious — 
those boles in the wall are 
expensive, but one wonders 
what they do for the compet- 
itive edge of the network 
members. 

Neither system is fully inte- 
grated yeL ln other words, the 
cardholder of one society can- 
pot use another -society’s hole 
in the wafi. But once the new 
Act comes into force and 
building societies are allowed 
to gram overdrafts, integra- 
tion will be easier. 

The power to lend without 
taking property as security wifi 
certainly help the societies fod 
the boom in consumer credit. 



Kirkham: bope of a cut 
The big societies have reason- 
ably sophisticated computer 
systems (some of them are 
rather slick), which can easily 
be adapted to administering 
unsecured loans ana 
mortgages. 

The Abbey National has 
made no secret of its in- 
tentions for several years. 
Donald Kirkham, chief exec- 
utive of the Woolwich Eq- 
uitable, told The Times this 
summer that his society would 
enter the market and hope to 
shave one. two . or perhaps 
even three points from the 
cost of borrowing. 

Brave decision to 
sell insurance 

The Halifax will certainly be 
entering the unsecured loan 
business. It sees “some scope 
for price cutting, though we’d 
be unhappy if a price war 
broke out". 

Next year the building soci- 
eties will be using their offices 
to sell all sorts of insurance 
services and they will even 
offer us alternative invest- 
ment media. This is a brave 
decision in view of the 
pummelling the societies have 
laken at the hands of the unit 
trust industry this simmer. 

Nationwide will offer its 
customers pension plans, unit 
trusts and the Personal Equity 


Plan, all of whkh are more or 
less direct competitors with its 
own investment accounts — 
although so me pension plans 
invest . in building so ciety 
deposits, and the PEP will 
allow investors to keep then- 
cash on tax-free deposit for a 
year before the plunge into (he 
share market 

The talk in what was once a 
gentle, almost timeless, in- 
dustry is now of supermarkets 
and products. “We shall be 
raking a Sainsbuiy’s line 
rather than a Maries & Spencer 
approach." said Nationwide. 

The Halifax will be taking 
things a lmic more slowly. 
Pensions and PEPs are not 
scheduled before 1988. 

Housing services are also set 
to change. No society’ is as yet 
keen to embark npon 
conveyancing. They are con- 
tent simply to see the lawyers’ 
fees pushed down by com- 
petition. Many are also look- 
ing at developing, selling or 
renting their own houses, 
while more house sales will be 
done through the medium of 
tied estate agents. 

Nationwide has acquired 
260 offices around the coun- 
try. while the Halifax has 
negotiated just one deal in 
Yorkshire, with “ others in the 
pipeline, although progress is 
stow". 

What about mutuality? It 
may not seem important to 
the consumer, not as though a 
change of status will make an 
immediate and obvious dif- 
ference, but some managers 
feel corporate status will help 
them in the day-to-day run- 
ning of the company. 

The Abbey National, for 
example, will not reveal its 
plans before a special meeting 
of members in November, 
and Nationwide’s plans need 
ratification next week. 

Although the possible 
change to limited company 
status will not change the 
colour of the office wallpaper, 
there are significant advan- 
tages to be gained. 

Ask any TSB priority ap- 
plicant Once a building soci- 
ety relinquishes its mutuality 
it loses its protection from 
takeover. This could also be 
beneficial for members: 
CitiSavings, the financial ser- 
vices arm of Citicorp has 
made no secret of its desire to 
acquire a budding society of 
about 250 branches, and there 
are rumours of the predatory 
intentions of other banks 
looking for a “delivery 
system". 

For some budding societies, 
mutuality is no more than a . 
benign fiction which protects 
them from takeover. What 
may be good for the share 
price may not be good for the 
board of directors, goes a 


rather timorous train of 
thought. 

The Abbey National has 
been flirting more or less 
openly with corporate status 
for the past few years. A 
spokesman said the Abbey has 
certainly been taking a “rig- 
orous took" ai going public, 
but while “the pic issue is 
being reviewed the new busi- 
ness rives us more than 
enough to do in the short 
term". 

The new Act wdl make 
societies wait for at least a year 
before converting in any 
event. Furthermore, at toast 
20 per cent of members must 
participate in the decision - a 
tad order for a society with a 
big membership base. 

Nationwide said it win re- 
tain its mutual status: “We're 
offering the same services, but 
not the same philosophy as 
the banks." Tim Melvdk- 
Ross, the chief general man- 



Mefrille-Ross: no change 

ager, said when announcing 
the new services that (here 
would be no change from 
mutual to proprietary status 
while the society “can operate 
and provide services 
effectively". 

For the consumer the new 
budding society freedoms are 
a good thing. They represent 
greater choice and flexibility 
m financial services. As one 
society spokesman said: “We 
applaud the banks' expertise, 
not their opening hours." 

The pace of change wdl not 
be great, but the effects will be 


Even bank customers 
may feel benefits 


profound. It may well be that 
even bank customers will feel 
the benefits of the Building 
Societies Act 1986. The banks 
have for some time been 
resisting the idea of paying 
interest on current account 
fahnoc, which last year av- 
eraged £33 billion at the big 
four high street banks. 

When they are competing 
with building societies who 
pay interest on their cheque 
accounts and can offer over- 
drafts, cheque guarantee cards 
and an the other accoutre- 
ments of a full banking ser- 
vice, the tempiation to 
must be great

INVEST FOR GROWTH 
THROUGH CS INTERNATIONAL FUND 
FOR A FLEXIBLE, INTERNATIONAL PORTFOLIO 

THAT OFFERS YOU: 


1. Thebenefits of fund management 
by a leading independent house 

The CS International Fund, a U.K. authorised unit trust, is 
managed by CS. Fund Managers Lid - part of an 
independent and highly protessional organisation 
responsible for £300 mulion of institutional and private 
money, of which a very significant proportion is invested 
overseas. 

2. Only 2% initial charges 

The majority of unit trusts make an initial charge of up to 
5°o. The low 2% initial charge on CS International Fund 
which applies until April 19S7 means that money invested 
now works a good deal harder for you. 

3. A portfolio to beat the indices 

The specific objective of the managers is to outperform the 
Capital Iniemauorul World tndex.’The initial portfolio will 
be spread between Bonds, (with an emphasis on the 
Deutschemark and the Yen) and equities in die US. Europe, 
the UK and the Far East 

4. Worldwide flexibility 

The aim of the CS International Fund is capital growth from 
a portfolio invested in markets worldwide. The investment 
policy is flexible and the managers will react quickly to 
changing circumstances. The emphasis is on equity 
investment and at least 60% of the portfolio will normally 
be invested overseas. 

Currency considerations, the relative merits of equity 
markets and individual share selection will play an 
important part in the development and implementation of 
the investment policy pursued by the managers. 

There is therefore genuine flexibility to protea the interests of unitfaaUas 
and maxmnse 


Invest now for international o p portunity 
To invest, please return the coupon with your cheque 
: minimum £1 .0001 and units will be allocated at the offer 
price then ruling. 

On 3rd October 19S6 the unit offer price was 56.8p and the 
estimated gross yield Z'. a. 

Please bear m mind that the price of units, and the income 
from them, may go down as well as up. 

You should regard your investment as long term.

CS INTERNATIONAL FUND 



A 30-YEAR 


Over the last thirty years you probably could not 
have held a unit trust with a better performance than 
M&G SECOND GENERAL 

£1,000 invested at its launch in June 1956 would 
now be worth £67,208 with afl hi come reinvested, 
compared with £8^.04 from a simfiar investment in a 
building society. To have maintained its purchasing 
power over the period, £1,000 would need to have 
^grown to £8,748. 

The British Stockmarket has been strong for a 
number of years, which is why many investors are 
now looking at overseas markets for new investment 
opportunities. But concentration in one particular 
area can produce very volatile investment results, 
and this year’s high ffier can often be next year’s poor 
performer. You should be wary of short-term per- 
formance claims, such as the “Over 50% &owtfi in 
just five months” quoted recertify for a European 
unit trust 

M&G has two International Funds which solve the 
problem by spreading your investment effectively among 
frie major stockmarkets of the world. 

The M&G International Income Fund aims to 
provide a high income, and one that can be expected to 
increase over the years, from an international portfolio of 
equities. 

The M&G intemationalGrowth Fund aimsfor all-out 
capital growth by investing in the major stockmarkets of 
the world 

If you remain optimistic about the British Stockmarket 
and want a balanced portfolio, look at M&G SECOND 
GENERAL which aims for consistent growth of income 
and capital from a wide spread of shares mainly in British 
companies.

neat year. 

Even the present numbers 
are vast- by the standards of 
traditional estate agency, but 
both the Hambro Countryside 
chain and the Lloyds Black 
Horse Agency are bigger than 
Prudential Property Services. 

New players will soon be 


ofTer people the option to 
borrow at a fixed rate for the 
three years, rather than face 
fluctuating costs. 

Through last summer, there 
were considerable variations 
on the income multiple that 
lenders would use to decide 


A wide choke of property, and of the financial package that goes with it 


joining them. The Nation- how much you could borrow 
wide, Britain’s thiitf biggest ^ that is less marked 
building society, plans to have now - 


a network of 350 agencies by 
the end of next year, though it 
still needs a formal go-ahead 
from a meeting of its members 
later on this year. The Halifax, 
too. has bought 18 agencies, a 
characteristically cautious toe- 
dip into the market, compared 
with the Nationwide's splash. 

Every entrant provides a 
ritual declaration about the 
virtues of being in estate 
agency, and all of them can 
almost certainly offer cus- 
tomers a much wider selection 


now. 

All that ensures that the 
mortgage offer your new-look 
estate agent may provide is 
not neccessarily the one that 
suits you best, and it may well 
make sense to look elsewhere. 

Mortgages are just where 
matters start. If you take out 
an insurance-linked endow- 
ment mortage the new estate 
agents will certainly have a 
package on offer. They will be 
Just as keen to sell you 
insurance covering both the 
structure of the house and 


your possessions inside it. 

Whatever happens, there 
will be no compulsion. If you 
happen to buy a house 
through one of the Nation- 
wide network, you can always 
use a loan from the Halifax to 
finance it. Equally, Prudential 
Property Services will accept a 
Norwich Union endowment 
policy to cover the insurance 
part of any mortgage you use. 

But one in five people who 
come into estate agents' stores 
are first-lime buyers, and they 
will certainly be steered, 
though not forced, into the 
owners' various loans or poli- 
cies. The same will apply to 
second-time buyers who want 


to extend an endowment 
mortgage. 

But the Prudential’s agen- 
cies will have only Prudential 
policies on offer, and the 
Royal will probably take the 
same line, with the agencies 
where it has a minority stake. 

The Prudential's estate 
agency side may be excellent. 
But the company's life insur- 
ance policies have a lacklustre 
record. They have certainly 
never come near the top 10 
performance tables, where 
such names as Scottish Wid- 
ows, Norwich Union and 
Equitable Life feature very 
prominently. If you want an 
endowment mortgage, on past

tip to yon. 


Allow us to present what is surely the 
most flexible business loan available on 
the market today. 

Namely, die Lloyds Bank Business 
Loan. With it you can borrow as little as 
£2000 or as much as £1 million. 

And it also offers you a choice of 
repayment options no other bank can 
compete with. 

Repayment Loan 

If you opt for a straight repayment loan, 
you can have up to 30 years to pay it back. 
And you may also plump for regular 
monthly or even quarterly payments, 
whichever suits you best. 

Endowment Loan 

You can take advantage of this unique 
option when the term of your loan 
exceeds ten years. Interest is payable 
throughout the whole term, while capital 
is repaid with an endowment assurance 
poiicylt usually leads to a healthy cash 
bonus at maturity. No other major bank 
offers this. 

Fixed Interest 

There's a simple advantage attached to 
the fixed rate option. It allows you to 
budget precisely when forecasting your 

cashflow. 

Variable Interest 

On the other hand, you may well prefer 
to take advantage of an interest rate at 


an agreed percentage above our base rate. 

Fixed or Variable Interest 
What’s more, you can switch from a fixed 
rare to a variable rate or vice versa every 
five years if you so wish without any 
charge whatsoever. 

Capital Holiday 

From the outset of the loan, you can defer 
capital repayments for up to two years 
while your cash flow grows ever more 
favourable. 

Stepped Repayments 
Alternatively, stepped repayments may be 
more to your liking. This way, you can 
gradually increase the amount you pay 
over the first two years. 

Early Repayments 

If your business performs better than 
originally forecast you’re entitled to repay 
part or even all of the loan early without 
giving any notice and without incurring 
additional cost. 

More Than One Loan 
You can take out as many loans as you 
require, be they for individual assets or 
complete projects. 

Accident and Sickness Cover 
Should you, your partners or your key 
directors be prevented from working 
through injury or illness, Loan Repay- 
ment Insurance buys valuable time by 
meeting repayments as they fall due. 


Death Cover 

This insurance also sees to it that in the 
event of the insured person’s death, the 
whole outstanding balance of the loan is 
cleared forthwith. 

The invaluable protection afforded 
by Loan Repayment Insurance is avail- 
able at set rates on loans up to £50,000 and 
for periods of up to ten years. 

However well gladly offer individual 
quotations on other loans. 

Whatever your needs in the cut and 
thrust world of business, we can help. 
Simply cut out the coupon and thrust it 
in an envelope. 

Alternatively, you can always call in 
at your local Lloyds Bank branch or call

How to coin it 

■ Buddy; can you spare a 
Merovingian coin? Anyone who 
can is probably reasonably 
weathy, as these coins are 
something of a rarity. They are, 
as you knew, the currency of 
ttie Merovingian kings. of the 
Ranks. For sheer obscurity 
alone, J. Pearson Andrew’s 
book, Coins and Investment, is 
worth a read. In addition, Mr 
Andrew traces the history of 
some coins, and the coin 
market in an informed manner, 
and the book is laid out in a 
pleasing way, despite a paucity 
of Hlustration. 

Although Mr Andrew warns 
against the caprice of the coin 
market readers really must 
bear in mind the investment 
risks. If you like coins for their 
own sake you are less likely to 
be disappointed. 

More for Europe 

■ European funds have been 
very popular with the marketing 
men. Every good fund manager 
should have one, seems to 
have been the motto. But three 
in one stable? Surely this is 
over-egging the pudding? 

Not according to Henderson 
Ad ministation, which is launch- 
ing a new European Income 
fund to complement its Euro- 
pean and European Smaller 
Companies unit trusts. There 
are few funds invested in 
Europe designed to produce 
income, and the forecast Is a 
yield of at least 4.5 per cent 
Henderson says it wffl exploit 
the trend 


companies of issuing bonds for 
income. The minimum invest- 
ment is £500, with an Initial 
charge of 5.25 per cent and an 
annual levy of i per cent Units 
in the fund will be on offer at a 
gnee of 5 Op, fixed until October 

Pru’s new one 

■ The Prudential's willingness 
to spend £200 million on 
establishing a nationwide es- 
tate agency network is indic- 
ative of the revolution which is 
sweeping the property market 
in the UK. its latest acquisition 
is Cubitt & West the firm of 
estate agents employing 300 
people in 25 branches h the 
south of England. The Pruden- 
tial was not Cubitt & West's 
only suitor. David Hill, the joint 
senior partner of the firm, says 
it was wooed by 20 others keen 
to snap up a ready made outlet 
for financial products such as 


insurance and mortgages. 

The insurance companies and 
latterly the building societies 
are looking for so-called flight 
net worth individuals to whom w 
they can sell their services m an 
increasingly competitive mar- 
ket Cubitt & West fits the bill 
nicely, being located in one of 
tiw most affluent areas of the 
country. 

The finm will have to sell the 
Insurance company's products 
but it will not be limited to what 
mortgages it can offer. Cubitt & 
West and the Pru are adamant 
that selling houses will remain a 
mainstream activity accounting 
for 70 per cent of profits. 

■ The Fraud Investigation 
Group rang. Our article on 
multipie applications last 
week said the first defendants 
on the BT issue of November 

1984 had been prosecuted last 

week. They were merely the 
latest. The first were brought . 
to book in April this year. ^

Labour’s 
rules for 
investors 

Unit trust groups, pension 
funds aad insurance com- 
panies will have any tax 
privileges removed by a La- 
boar government udess they 
engage in substantial repatri- 
ation of capital in the interests 
of the British economy. 

So said the Shadow Chan- 
cellor Boy Hatfersfey in his 
speech to an invited audience 
at Baring Fund Managers, 
part of the merchant bank of 
the same name, cm Thursday. 

Mr Hattersley said 
Labour’s twin priorities were 
the reduction of unemploy- 
ment and the aUeriatiOB of 
poverty. 

Although, he conceded that 
the fell in inflation during the 
past seven years was an 
achievement, be said the level 
was stiD higher than in other 
comparable countries. Urgent 
priorities now, he said, were 
the regeneration of m a n uf ac- 
tu rin g industry and increased 
public expenditure, with the 
PSBR likely to rise by £6 
billion. 

On taxation, Mr Hattersley 
said that, although he had no 
doctrinal or emotional attach- 
ments to higher taxes, the (op 
5 per cent of wage earners 
would have to pay more in 
order to alleviate poverty. 

Mr Hattersley also con- 
firmed that a Labour govern- 
ment would return British Gas 
and British Telecom to public 
ownership, hot he wanted to 
see a mixture of private and 
public ownership with more 
worker buyouts and more 
worker representation on 
boards of directors. Such em- 
ployee participation would, be 
said, increase commitment to a 
level similar to (hat of Swedish 
and US workers. j

the tracks, save for crossing, and 
on racing days they did so in the 
interests of safety, but there was 
no evidence that those using the 
common for the purposes men- 
tioned had ever been treated as 
trespassers. 

Nor had there ever been a 
notice prohibiting or restricting 
such user. 

The council asserted that h 
had in effect chosen not to 
enforce its rights in trespass 
strictly. However, no minute or 
record of any such decision was 
produced to support that view. 

Mr Whybrow contended that 
use for public recreation had to 
be as of right, and that use in 
pursuance of a bare licence 
would not suffice; that any right 
to use ihe land for air and 
exercise derived from section 
193 of the Law of Property Art 
1925 was extinguished because 
the land had not been registered 
under the Commons Registra- 
tion Act 1965, and that there 
was no evidence of any grant 
since then. 

Mr George contended, first, 
that provided user was lawful, it 
need not be as of right, and 
alternatively that user as of right 
dated from a time before 1926, 
and that there was nothing to 
prevent the court from inferring 
a modem lost gram. 

After examining the evidence 
his Lordship concluded that 
prior to 1926 the rights of user 
by the public did not depend 
upon tolerance or permission of 
Doncaster Corporation; that at 
no stage was there anything to 
suggest that their use was on 
sufferance only, and that there 
had been no assertion of any 
right to end such use before the 
present dispute arose. 

The only reasonable factual 
inference to be drawn was that 
from some date prior to I860 
ihe public had used the common 
for recreation as of right. 

It remained to consider 
whether the law permitted such 
an inference to be drawn. Seo- 


could. likewise, not be described . 
as “occupied”. >j

Even though there may not 


public did not have use as of I be too many thronging the 


right, before such rights came 
into existence in 1926 as a result 
of section 193, but that if, as his 
Lordship bad found, the public 
already enjoyed such rights, the 
feet that the common had not 
been registered under the Com- 
mons Registration Act 1965 
could not detract from those, 
pre-existing rights. 

What was claimed was neither' 
an easement, a profit or a right 
of common; it was akin to the 
right which local inhabitants 
might enjoy over a town or 
village green, but there was a 
difference, since the latter right j 
was not a right of the public as a 
whole, and it derived from 1 
custom. In the present case the . 
right could not be based on 
custom. 

Having referred to In re 
Heddon ([1932] 1 Ch 133), his 
Lordship concluded that it 
would have been possible for the 
corporation to have created a 
trust, in a proper legal manner, 
givi ng a right of recreation to the 
public. 

Mr Whybrow likened the 
right claimed to a jus spatiandi, 
which be contended, relying on 
Mounsey v Ismay ((1863) 3 H & 
C 486), was a right unknown to 
English law. 

But his Lordship, after 
considering In re Eilenbomugh 
Park ([I9&] 1 Ch 131), Tyne 
Improvement Commissioners t 
Imrie {(1899) 81 LT 174),; 
Goodman v Mayor of Sahash 
((1882) 7 App Cas 633) and 
Attorney General v Antrobus 
([1905] 2 Ch 188). concluded 
that 

1 had an express grant of the 
rights claimed been produced - 
the law would have recognized 
their validity; 

2 the law allowed the court to 
presume that at some time prior 
to I860, such rights were val- 
idly granted: 

3 the evidence could not be 
satisfactorily explained by mere 


terraces at Twickenham today 
- an attendance of around 
1 5,000 is expected — there will 
be considerable interest 
abroad in the England XVs 
performance against Japan. 
Australia play in the same 
group in next year’s World 
Cup and, apart from having 
the opportunity to assess two 
of the opposing countries at 
the same time, they will 
receive an idea of the standard 
likely to be attained in their 
group. 

The interest will not be 
entirely altruistic. While 
Australia win be delighted to 
see their opponents — the 
United States make up group 
A — performing at the highest 
pitch the skills of the game, 

Nigel Melville, the recently- 
retired England scrum half 
and captain, is maintaining his 
connections with the Rugby 
Football Union. As sports 
promotion manager for the 


Concord Oval, opened by 
New South Wales in March, 
will be the alternative venue. 

That is a much smaller 
ground, capable of holding 
over 20,000, and it should be 
full ■ to overflowing when 
Australia play England. Yet 
the last memory of Engjand 
that many Sydney enthusiasts 
have is an impoverished dis- 
play during the international 
sevens tournament seven 
months ago on the same 
ground; they will be nothing if 
not cynical when May comes 
round. 

So England's display today 
is important for that reason, 
quite apart from the need for a 
morale-boosting win over Ja- 
pan and a match in which the 
selectors and coaches can 
assess the progress of their 
charges over the last two 
months. Harsh judgements 
may be made by the public, 
too, if England do not run in 
40 or 50 points because the

The Australian public will

the Webb Ellis Trophy in 
Sydney and Brisbane with a 
practised eye already 
sharpened by the Austral ia- 
England cricket series, the 
worid cricket series and the 
challenge rounds for the 
America's Cup off Fremantle. 

Rugby has to offer a high 
standard to compete with 
those other sports and, in ihe

ily with Australia and England

No retrospective invalidation of 
debenture transaction 


Mace Builders (Glasgow) Ltd 
vLtmii 

Before Sir John Donaldson. 
Master of the Rolls. Lord i ustice 
Noursc and Lord Justice 
Ghdewcll 

[Judgment given October 7) 

Section 322(1) of the Com- 
panies Act 1 948 did not have the 
retrospective effect of in validat- 
ing transactions by a debenture 
holder or receiver which pre- 
dated by less than 12 months the 
winding-up of the company. 

The Court of Appeal so held, 
dismissing an appeal by the 
plaintiffs. Mace Builders (Glas- 
gow) Ltd. from the derision of 
Mr Justice Scott on January 29. 
1985. ([1986] Ch 459) who held 
that the defendant. Denis Chris- 
topher Carter Lunn, was not 
required by section 322(1) to 
repay the proceeds of a deben- 
ture realized less than 12 
months before the plaintiffs 
went into liquidation. 

Mr Alan SteinfeJd for the 
liquidator of the plaintiffs: Mr 
Gregory Hill for the defendant, 

THE MASTER OF THE 
ROLLS said that on May 21. 
1981. the plaintiffs, a Scottish 
company, granted to the defen- 
- dant, their managing director, a 
debenture containing a floating 
charge to secure their indebted- 
ness to him up to a total of 
£100,000. The debenture was 
granted in consideration of his 
giving further financial support 
to the plaintiffs. 

k was common ground that at 
the time the plaintiffs were not 
solvent and that the amount of 
further financial support by the 
defendant amounted to £20,000- 

On November 2. 1981, the 
defendant, in the exercise of his 
rights under the debenture, ap- 
pointed himself receiver of the 
plaintiffs and sold their assets 
for the sum of £95,000. He then 
applied that sum towards repay- 
ment of the plaintiffs’ indebted- 
ness to himself secured by the 
debenture. 

On May 20, within 12 months 
of the granting of the debenture, 
the plaintiffs went into liquida- 
tion in Scotland. 


In the present action, the 
liquidator sought- repayment 
from the defendant of the 
£95.000. less the £20.000 to- 
gether with interest thereon at 
the rate authorized by section 
322 of the Compan ies Act 1948. 

Mr Justice Scott dismissed 
the plaintiffs’ claim holding that 
section 322( I ) did not invalidate 
anything done under the 
authority of a floating charge 
prior to the commencement of 
the winding-up. 

It had to be emphasized that 
the court was purely concerned 
with the construction of section 
322 and was not concerned with 
the particular consequences of 
the defendant's having com- 
bined the roles of managing 
director, debenture holder and 
receiver. 

Section 322(1) provided: 
“Where a company is being 
wound up. a floating charge on 
the undertaking or property of 
the company created within 12 
months of the commencement 
of the winding-up shall, unless it 
is proved that the company 
immediately after the creation 
of the charge was solvent be 
invalid, except to the amount of 
any cash paid to the company at 
the time or or subsequently to 
the creation of. and in consid- 
eration for. the charge, together 
with interest . . .“. 

In In re Parkes Garage 
(Swadlincote) Ltd ([1929] 1 Cb 
139). a Divisional Court of the 
Chancery Division held that 
although section 212 of the 
Companies (Consolidation) Act 
1908. a predecessor of section 
322, rendered a charge in a 
debenture invalid when the 
company went into liquidation, 
that did not affect the covenants 
to pay the principal and interest 
contained in the debenture, so 
that money paid to the deben- 
ture holder in pursuance of the 
covenants did not have to be 
repaid. 

Mr Justice Scott held that the 
effect of section 322 was only to 
avoid the charge on the wind- 
ing-up. The defendant, in 
discharging the company's in- 
debtedness to himself was acting 
as the receiver and agent 


His Lordship agreed that the 
necessary conclusion from sec- 
tion 17(1) of the Companies 
(Floating Charges and Receiv- 
ers) (Scotland) Art 1972 was 
that the defendant was the agent 
for the company and that his act 
was the company’s act 

However, that did not dispose 
of the appeal because (a) the 
court was not bound by Parkes 
Garage and (b) if the charge was 
invalid at the time when the 
defendant appointed himself re- 
ceiver. he had no authority 
under section 17(1) to act on 
behalf of the company. 

The court had been invited to 
construe section 322 of the 1948 
Art in tandem with section 
320(1), which related to fraudu- 
lent preferences. If the latter 
section applied to the trans- 
action it would render the whole 
transaction invalid and give rise 
to a right of repayment: In re 
Gibson ((1878) 8 Ch D 230). 

The plaintiffs argued that the 
word “invalid” in both sections 
meant that the same con- ' 
sequences ensued from invalid- 
ity under each section. 

But section 322 rendered the 
floating charge invalid 
simpliciter, whereas section 320 
rendered it “invalid 
accordingly”, which related 
back to the earlier words of the 
section and meant “invalid with 
consequences which would flow 
under the law of bankruptcy if 
the transaction had been by an 
individual rather than a 
company". 

One was left with the section 
itself. The opening words 
showed lhal it had no applica- 
tion unless and until the com- 
pany was being wound up. His 
Lordship was satisfied that that 
section was confined to the 
winding-up. and that trans- 
actions effected under Uie 
authority of the charge which 
had been completed before the 
commencement of the winding- 
up were unaffected. 

Lord Justice Nourse delivered 
a concurring judgment and Lord 
Justice GlideweiT agreed.

Unbeaten clubs in Davies the ‘playaholic’ falls 
demanding task foul of the invisible injury 


By David Hands 


Two of the leading unbeaten 
clubs in Britain. Swansea and 
Saracens, face challenges of a 
different order today. 

Swansea make the short jour- 
ney to Llanelli conscious that it 
was their West Wales rivals who 
deprived Bath of their unbeaten 
tag. Their only absentee is 
Emyr. the wing who strained a 
muscle playing for the Barbar- 
ians in midweek; England's 
selectors may wish to note that 
Colclough. lhe lock, plays his 
second game for Swansea's sec- 
ond team, against Newbridge 
United. 

Saracens, however, may face 
their John Smith's merit table 
'B'game against London Irish 
with much more conviction 
since circumstances have con- 
trived to take away so many of 
the leading Irish players. 

The Irish have been told that 


a national squad session has 
been called for next weekend, 
which will remove their leading 
players when they are due to 
play Wasps on the Sunday. 

Thereafter come the Irish inter- 
provincial games which will 
leave the club's team-buDding 
plans with a somewhat forlorn 
look. 

Cambridge University will be 
hoping to recover from a mid- 
week defeat against St Mary's 
Hospital, an event unlooked for 
over the last few seasons. They 
bring in Cushing, the London 
Scottish scrum half, but are 
unlikely to get much change 
from Nottingham, their visitors, 
whose own scrum half Moon, 
appeared in light blue ranks two 
wars ago. Collinson and 
Tbornley replace Moore and 
Rees in the Nottingham pack.

Jonathan Davies, Ihe Wales 
stand-off half and captain of 
Neath, had hoped to be playing 
today but he will have to remain 
a reluctant onlooker for a while 
yet. He has been out of the game 
since his dub's match against 
Cardiff on September 13. 

What he had thought was a 
strained hamstring was di- 
agnosed earlier this week as a 
torn one. which means another 
six weeks' rest. It had happened 
to him before when playing for 
the Irish Wolfhounds. With the 
amount of rugby he has played 
in the last 12 months this latest 
setback is not surprising. 

It may have been a punishing 
routine on his legs but what of 
that if you get to see the world in 
the meantime? “I travelled 
75.000 miles last year," he said, 
“most of it coming towards the 
end of the season. I went with 
Wales to the sevens tournament 
in Australia, with the Irish 
Wolfhounds to Hong Kong, and 
finally I packed my bags once 
more to go with Wales to Fiji, 
Tonga and Samoa. It seems at 
one stage that the only contact I 
had with my wife was on the 
telephone from somewhere in, 
or very near, the South Pacific”. 

He had a hamstring injury 
while in Hong Kong and with- 
out giving it sufficient rest 
during the summer it has re- 
turned to hinder his early season 
rugby activities. “Players axe 
already taking bets in Neath as 
to which oneofus, Stuart Evans, 
the prop, or myself, will captain 
the team most this season”. 

He admits that his is one of 
the most awkward and frustrat- 
ing of injuries to have. Although 
he is able to walk without 
discomfort, it severely restricts 
his movements when running; 
and like many other forms of 
injury, there are no obvious 


By Gerald Danes 

signs of iL It may sometimes 
manifest itself with braising but 
this is not always the case. 

And there are attendant prob- 
lems, as players over the years 
have found out. With so in- 
visible an injury, how is it that 
you convince the doubting 
Thomases? Committee men,.es- 
pedally careworn selectors, 
weighed down by their relentless 
task, like journalists, of filling an 
empty sheet to a deadline, are 
impressed with a man sporting a 
plaster cast up to his knee, or a 
nose out of joint, and who may 
not. quite be ready for this 
weekend's match. 

But the dancing fly-boy in the 
threequartera with his so-called 
hamstring problem is trying to 
pull a fast oue. The 
psychiatrist's, not the 
physiotherapist's, couch is- the 
answer. 

From bis team-mates, too. the 
news of the hamstring is greeted 
with the nudge-nudge, wink- 
wink kind of bar-room scep- 
ticism. The trotting pattern of 
ihe forwards can rarely be said 
to stimulate the finer tendons 
and ligaments; it is often seen as 
the prima donna's injury which 
should not be taken at all 
seriously. - 

Other cynics see his injury as 
a rest period in response to Tony 
Grey, the Welsh coach, who 
advised the leading players to 
restrict their number of games in 
view of the World Cup in the. 
summer. . 

To talk to Davies, despite the 
early season reports of violence 
and the current serious debate m 
die International Rugby Board, 
is to understand the enthusiasm 
of the player for the game. Not 
to play now is an inconvenient 
disruption. To talk to him, too, 
is to understand the overwhelm- 
ing slant the presem-day for- 


ward, in Wales particularly, 
gives to his play. 

“The number of games I 
play,” he 'comments, “where 1 
find instructions coming from 
the pack- to *g« us down there, 
let's play the game on their line.' 
Then they hold the ball at the 
back of the scrum, or somebodv 
has to pick it up before giving it 
to the scrum half. By then the 
defence is up, we are flat-footed, 
so that the stand-off can do very 
little but kick. 

“Even at Neath I get it but as I 
am captain I have persuaded 
them otherwise. How can a 
forward know what tactics to 
employ when he has his head 
down in the scrum or low in the 
maul? When you look at New 
Zealand or play against their 
players the ball is returned as 
quick! yas possible to the half 
backs. They determine the plav 
And they are right, of course! 
Welsh rugby must do the same if 
we are to challenge successfully 
m the World Cup next year”. 

The Barbarians provided am- 
ple demonstration of what he 
meant at Newport on Tuesday 
night. The forwards made the 
platform but it was Harding and 
Andrew at halfback who were in 
control and varied the game in 
suc h a balanced way that it 
brought the best out of all the 
players. If Finlay Cakler, Skin- 
ner and Moriarty had their 
moments, so did Hastings. Dun-

which on April 24, 1985 had 
imposed a suspended prison 
sentence on the defendant, Mr 
David Ivor Stringer, when 
allowing his appeal from a 
sentence of immediate deten- 
tion imposed by justices. 

The defendant bad been aged 
20 when sentenced by the 
justices, but had been over 21 
when the crown court had heard 
his appeal. 

Mr Christopher Hodson for 
the prosecutor; Mr John 
Saunders for the defendant. 

LORD JUSTICE WATKINS 
said that the crown court ap- 
peared to have believed that 
they bad power to adjourn 
hearing die appeal until the 
defendant was 21. Attractive as 
sounded, it imiored the fact 
that Parliament nad protected- 
persons under 21 from having a 
sentence of imprisonment 
passed on them and had delib- 
erately not provided for youth 
custody or detention entire 
orders to be suspended. 

Under section 48 of the 1981 
Act the crown court had no 
more power on appeal from 
justices than the justices had 


had when they had passed the 
sentence under appeaL It was 
implicit in section 10(3) of the 
1980 Act that the power to 
adjourn before passing sentence 
was to be exercised judicially. 

It was not exercised judicially 
where justices adjourned for no 
other purpose than to allow the 
defendant to become 21: it was 
an abuse of the power to adjourn 
for that purpose. 

Where a defendant, on bis 
first appearance before a court 
after his conviction, was below 
the age at which he could be 
sentenced to imprisonment, it 
was in all circumstances unlaw- 
ful for the court to exercise, or to 
purport to exercise, the power of 
adjournment so as to be able to 
pass a term of imprisonment on 

The crown court had acted 
unlawfully in passing the sus- 
pended prison sentence. It 
would be quashed and a con- 
ditional discharge substituted. 

Mr Justice Paul Kennedy- 
agreed.

.The most recent of those

d’Arenbeig where 
Indian Forest recorded the 
very fast time of 58.6 seconds. 
That performance gave ample 
indication of Indian Forest’s 
pace and. with Jorge Velas- 
quez in the saddle, he should 
see off the disappointing home 
team. 

.Without the French chal- 
lenger, making a choice would 
indeed be difficult. I would 
probably have plumped for 
Amigo Sucio, who was in- 
volved in that close finish for 
the Coventry Stakes during 


By Mandarin (Michael Phillips) 
the Royal meeting way back in Hotel Street at Yarmouth - 


June. 

More recently. Amigo Sucio 
has won a group two race over 
six furlongs at Baden-Baden. 
Howver, he is penalized as a 
result and is likely to find the 
task of conceding 41b to 
Indian Forest beyond him. 

Earlier in the day. Tashtiya 
is napped to win the Princess 
Royal Stakes. While conced- 
ing that it is sometimes foolish 
to oppose sound pattern race 
form, as represented here by 
Salchow. Stanino. and Mill 
On The Ross. I still feel that, 
in this instance, it is worth 
siding with Tashtiya who will 
be fresher than most at this 
stage of the season with only 
two races behind her. 

Also I happened be on the 
Limekilns at Newmarket last 
Saturday morning when 
Tashtiya went really well in a 
gallop with the Yorkshire 
Oaks-winner. Untold. To me, 
that was concrete proof that 
the way that the Aga Khan's 
Shergar filly had slammed 


and remember Hotel Street 
had won her previous race by 
20 lengths — was not just a 
flash in the pan. 

During the same work 
morning. I also saw Stanino 
go better than Mill On The 
Ross. But she still has three 
lengths to make up on 
Salchow if one harps back to 
the Park Hill Stakes. Signifi- 
cantly Tashtiya’s connections 
are not afraid of taking 
Salchow on because they have 
a line on her through another 
of their fillies, AJtiyna, who 
was a place behind her at 
Doncaster, and at Chester in 
the spring. 

Finding the winner of the 
Bovis Handicap is invariably 
like searching for the prover- 
bial needle in a haystack. My 
search eventually unearthed 
Young Inca who has won the 
race before. With three other 
victories on the course to bis 
credit, be is something of a 
standing dish at Ascot and 
what is more he has a good 


low draw. In contrast, his 
stable and travelling compan- 
ion. Derry River, could easily 
see too much daylight too 
early drawn 16. 

Peri on. who has been placed 
at Goodwood since finishing 
third behind Felipe Toro in 
the Portland Handicap, is my 
idea of the principal danger to 
Young Inca. 

Felipe Toro himself contests 
the Coral Bookmakers Sprint 
Trophy at York, where a high 
draw next to the rails looks 
tailor-made to suit his aggres- 
sive front-running style. I am 
hopeful he will trigger off a 
double for his owner, Dick 
Warden, trainer, Peter 
Easterby. and jockey, Marie 
Birch, to be completed a little 
over an hour later by On Tap 
in the- Rodti ogham Stakes. 

The very easy winner of his 
Iasi three races. On Tap 
should prove too quick over 
only six furlongs for Midyan, 
who looked a bit one-paced 
when beaten over further at 
Goodwood in July.

Students of racing who take a 
global view of the sport should 
be id their dement as they weigh 
up the outcome of the major 
races in Ireland this weekend. 
This afternoon the Phoenix 
Park pul on two preparatory 
races for the Breeders Cup in the 
United States and tomorrow 
afternoon the Curragh play host 
to the Jefferson Smurfit Me- 
morial Irish St Leger. 

The runners at these two 
meetings include not merely a 
clutch that have been perform- 
ing in English and Irish group 
races but also contenders who, 
on their latest outings, were 
participants in France. Ger- 
many, Norway and America. 

The star attraction at the 
Phoenix Park will be the appear- 
ance of Lord Derby’s durable 
six-year-old Teleprompter in the 
IR£35.000 Breeders Cup Prep 
Mile. On previous visits to this 
course in 1984 and 1985. Tele- 
prompter emerged a facile win- 
ner of the Pacemaker 
International Stakes. 

Subsequently he earned glory 
and a fistful of dollars in the 
Budweiser Million at Arlington 
Park in Chicago. Although he 
has not been quite as effective 
this season, it was a courageous 
run to get so dose to Sure Blade 
in the Queen Elizabeth □ Stakes 
at Ascot. 

The most interesting of his 
four rivals today is Cumute, 
who last season won a maiden 
race at Newmarket when trained 
by Frankie Durr and who this 
term has campaigned most 
successfully in Scandinavia 
where he won the Norwegian 
2.000 Guineas. He is hardly 
likely to prove up to the 
standard of Teleprompter, 
though. 

The Breeders Cup Classic, 


over 1 1 furlongs, should also be 
dominated by the English run- 
ners. These include Highland 
Chieftain, who ran second to 
Kazaroun in the Cumberland 
Lodge States at Ascot, and 
Nomrood. On early season 
form. Nomrood would have the 
advantage but he may not have 
trained on as well as Highland 
Chieftain, the mount of Pat 
Eddery. 

It was a wise decision on the 
part of the Curragh executive to 
open up the Irish St Leger to 
older horses. Had it been con- 
fined to three-year-olds, 
tomorrow’s renewal would have 
been something of a fiasco as the 
only competitors from that age 
group are Authaal and Ele- 
mentary. Authaal has won his 
three starts in Ireland but had 
his limitations exposed when be 
went to York while Elementary 
has yet to run. 

This race could develop into a 
carbon copy of the 1985 running 


when the finish was fought out 
between Leading Counsel and 
Faburola. On that occasion. 
Leading Counsel got the better 
of the older mare by three- 
quarters of a length. 

Leading Counsel won his first 
outing this season, having been ; 
off the track for several months, 
and then ran well in the Prix Foy 
at Longchamp to be beaten only 
a neck and two beads into fourth 
place behind Mersey. 

Faburola. who is trained in 
France, has likewise bad a light 
campaign and this will only be 
her third run of the year. She 
took second place to Baby Turk 
in the Grand Prix de Deauville 
and then went to America to 
finish fifth in a slow Tun Turf 
Classic at Belmont Park m 
which Manila beat Damister. 

A year ago Leading Counsel's 
finishing speed was the decisive 
factor and it could be a similar 
story tomorrow.

Spanish challenger: Marta FigKsras-Dotti in joint second place behind Peggy Conley 

GOLF: BRITISH WOMEN’S OPEN CHAMPIONSHIP 

Pep talk that lifted Miss 
Conley’s spirit and game 


Peggy Conlev yesterday edged 
closer towards a famous win in 
the British women’s Open at 
Royal Birkdale only months 
after vowing that she would quit 
the game at the end of this 
season. 

The 39-year-old from Seattle. 
Washington, attached a second 
round of 69 to her opening 70 
for an 11 under par halfway 
aggregate of 139 and a one 
stroke lead from Debbie 
iwlim (70) and the Spaniard 
Maria Figneras-Dotti (72). 

Then she revealed how a few 
words of wisdom from Vivien 
Saunders, who won this title in 
1977, resurrected her enthu- 
siasm after bo- spirit evaporated 
when she plunged from third to 
21st hi the WPGA money list 
last year. 

“Vivien has given me some 
technical adyice but more im- 
portantly she rekindled my in- 
terest for golf,” Miss Conley 
explained . “She’s a sports 
psychologist, very positive and 
perceptive, and she gave me a 
good old-fashioned pep talk. 

“This was going to be my last 
year but I’m having so much fun 
again on the course that I expect 
to be around for a long while 
now.” 

Miss Conley has overcome 
various problems in the past 
and as a sufferer of karpal tunnel 


By Mitchell Platts 

syndrome, which leads to poor 
circulation, she was compelled 
to have surgery on her left hand 
and she subsequently aban- 
doned a successful ca re e r on the 
US circuit. 

“I lost my playing privileges 
on our turf and I’ve no intention 
of returning because Fm now 
enjoying myself too much in 
Europe.” she added. 

Even so Miss Conley was 
reminded of one worrying as- 
pect of her game whe a Royal

and Ancient official warned her 
on the 1 lth tee to “speed-up” as 
the championship organizers 
launched a thorough attack on 
slow play. 

“1 was once penalized two 
shots in an American event,” 
recalled Miss Conley. “And I 
played my last seven holes today 
fearing that h might happen 
again. I have a tendency to play 


stow and it was worrying as they 
kept timing us.” 

Miss Conley’s concern looked 
likely to ruin her prospects of 
leading when she took three 
putts at the 16th. rushing her 
second attempt and miming 
from 18 inches, but she regained 
her composure to fipish with an 
eagle three at the long 17th, 
where she struck a five iron to 
five feet, and a birdie at the lasL 
Miss Hgneras-Dotti, who 
won this title as an amateur at 
Royal Birkdale m 1982, was 
similarly anxious when she was 
warned for stow phy at the 1 7th. 
But by then she was more 
distressed by a succession of 
patting lapses which included 
missing once from nine inches. 

Sbelater stressed that she was 
bothered by there being no 
leader boards c» the course and 
officials and (he matter 
will be immediately rectified so 
♦hat the leading contenders will 
have some idea of their 
meats’ p rogres s during the 
1 two rounds. 

Kim Hurley, a 20-year-old 
from Hertfordshire who has 
won the princely sum of £273 in 
two years as a professional, 
earned herself a £1.000 bonus 
tinder the Perrier “HTEanieTe in 
one” awards scheme after holing 
her eight iron tee shot at the 
seventh. 


Norman trails to newcomer 


Tweed Heads, Australia (A P) 
— Breu Ogle, the Australian 
rookie, who was packing pump- 
kins for a living just 12 months 
ago. collected a six-under-par 66 
yesterday to take a two-stroke 
lead after two rounds of the 
$63,000 Queensland Open 
tournament. 


The highlight of Ogle’s round 
came on the eieveth hole when 
he holed out with a mne-trou-for 
an e a g le. ’ 

Ogle's 36-hoJe total of nine- 
under-par 135 was two shots 
better than the Australians, 
Greg Norman and Jeff Wood- 
and the New Zealander, 


Bruce Soolsby. 

Norman followed his open- 
ing-round score of 67 with a 70, 
while Woodland, the joint lead- 
er in the- first round, had a 73 
and Soulsby collected a 72.

New Zealand takes it 
easy in dock as her 
rivals slog it out at sea 

> VA 

y M 


From Barry PickthaU, Fremantle 


On a second 
day when Bri- 
tain’s White 
Crusader made 
most of the 
light ever-shift- 
ing breeze out 
in Gage Roads 
— this time defeating French 
Kiss by a convincing I minute 
28 second margin - main 
interest in these America’s 
Cup trials centred around new 
Zealand’s ’Plastic-fantastic’ 1 2 
metre: 

While her 12 alloy con- 
structed rivals slugged it out 
on the race course, the 
controversial glass fibre con- 
structed New Zealand 12 me- 
tre remained modestly 
screened from view in her 
dock while Chris Dickson, the 
skipper, and his crew enjoyed 
a well-earned bye from this 
initial Round Robin series. 

In Britain’s race against 
French Kiss, Harold 
Cudmore, the skipper, who 
has yet to lose a start m this se- 
ries, soon had the measure of 
this promising French design, 
and after crossing the line two 
seconds ahead out towards the 
favoured starboard side of the 
course, was timely placed for 
the first big shift of the day. 

That change in wind direc- 
tion little more than a minute 
after tbe start, gave the British 
a five length lead and the race 
seemed settled - until the 
breeze suddenly shifted back 
again.Then French Kiss, com- 
ing in from the opposite side 
of tbe course, suddenly posed 
a serious threat dipping under 
White Crusader’s stern as they 
cross-tacked. 

That moment of shock for 
the British soon faded, for 
Cudmore picked Crusader 
through the shifts to round the 


weather mark with a 1 minute 
13 second advantage.They 
then lost nine seconds to the 
KlS-sponsored French yacht 
on the running \eg that fol- 
lowed. indicating that the 
British still have their work 
cut out, improving their 
performance on these spinna- 
ker legs, beforereco vering lost 
ground on tbe next windward 
leg. 

Thereafter, this race, like 
most others yesterday, became 
a procession, the 
Howleu-designed White Cru- 
sader losing 5-7 seconds on the 
remaining ofiwind legs of this 
18 mile shortened course, but 
then gaining again on the last 
beat to twist the knife into 
Gaelic pride for the second 
day in succession. 

In other matches yesterday, 
Tom Blackallefs USA had an 
untroubled race against 
Buddy Metaes* Heart of Amer- 
ica and fellow Americans 
aboard the Newport Beach 
challenger Eagle sent Azzurra 
down to her fifth defeat, this 
time by a 2 minute 3 second 
maigin. 

Dennis Conner, playing his 
chosen America’s Cup role as 
devil’s advocate in the con- 
troversy surrounding the 
construction details of the 
New Zealand boat, had little 
to side-track him during Stars 
& Snipes 4 minute 42 second 
slaughter of Challenge France. 

Tbe real blood-letting, how- 
ever, occured in the one-sided 
battle between America II and 
Courageous skipped by Dave 
Vietor, its co-owner. The Yale 
Corinthian yacht, which 
successfully defended the 
’Auld Mug’ m 1974 and 1977 
went down by the largest 
margin in her illustrious his- 
tory - an emb ar rassing 11

Bale is back with 
a new challenge 

By Sex Bellamy, Tennis Corespondent 

Two of the balffoigotten men 
ofllritish teams, Stuart Bale and 
Jonathan Smith, win contest a 
semi-final of the Refuge Assur- 
ance national championships at 
Telford today. Each hasbealen 
two men with higher ranking s. 

Yesterday Bale won 6-3, 6-2 
against last year’s champion, 

Jeremy Bates,, and Smith beat 
Leighton Alfred 6-4, 6-3. 

Smith, aged 31, comes firms 
Exeter. In 1981 and 1982 he nos 
a Davis Cup player, primarily a 
doubles specialist. At Teiford he 
often remind? younger men how 
much they lave to learn. Bale, 
aged 22, is a left-handed Lon- 
doner who rep re sented Britain 
in last year’s European team 
champiohshipL Now he is 
renewing his challenge fix* a 
Davis Cup place. 

Seven months ago Bate had 
an operation on his left knee. It 
was not until after Wimbledon 
that he settled down to serious 
wort practice, gymnastics and 
naming. He had pat the work 
in, be said y ester day , so his 
present form was no sur p rise . 

“And last week did my con- 
fidence a tot of good,” he said. 

On September 22 Bale had a 
telephone call Inviting him to 
Essen for a week's pre-Telford 
practice with Boris Becker and 
the rest of the German Davis 
Cup team. Both the telephone 
call and the practice were good 
fm Bate's morale. Becker found 
the left-hander’s service difficult 
to read and iu tbe past two days 
Mike Walker and Bates have 
bad the same problem. 

“When his serves are that big, 
you have to guess a lot,” Bates 
said. “1 didn’t serve wefi, so be 
could just swing — and he hit 
some unbelievable shots. I had 
do chance to get into tbe rallies 
when he was serving — and 


edition of Annabel Croft 
Jane Langstaff put everything 
she had into her first set with 
Miss Hobbs, who was often 
tentative. Miss Langstaff was 
serving fix* the set at 5-4 and 30- 
30. That crisis behind her. Miss 
Hobbs raised the level of her 
game and Miss Langstaff could 
no longer bother her. 

Sarah Loosemore, aged IS, 
was beaten 6-3, 7-6 by Miss 
Gomer, who has withdrawn 
from the doubles because of a 
pulled thigh fnusde that was so 
painful yesterday that she some- 
times felt fainL Miss Gomer 
toyed with the idea of retire- 
ment if the second set went 
her — as it would haye 
but fora ihtle luck and tbe 


Lloyd out of 
British dates 

The recmrence of a knee 
injury has forced Chris Lloyd 
to withdraw from the Brighton 
tournament on October 20 and 
the Wigbtraaa Cup match 
between Britain and the 
United States at the Albert 
Hall an October 30. 


In the ocher semi-final Ste- 
Shaw win play Andrew 
who has replaced him as 
a Davis Cop player. Both looked 
brisk and competent yesterday. 
The women's line-up wifi be Jo 
Dune (twice champion) v Sara 
Gomer and Anne Hobbs (the 
holder) v 


feet that she was playing well 
enough to exploit her greater 
experience. 

Miss Loosemore led 5-3, was 
serving at 30-0, and had two set 
points in the tie-break. One 
hopes, without confidence, that 
in the next few years she will 
have enough competition to 
build on her recent advance.

Grants under threat 


By John Goodbody 

The Rugby Football Union 
and the Lawn Tennis Associ- 
ation are among the 29 govenz- 
mg bodies to have given “fimited 
commitment” to drag testing 
and amid lose their government 
gra nts if they do not introduce an 
effective programme in die com- 
iag year. 


A spokeswoman for the 
Sports GmbqI said yesterday 
that 58 of the 87 gover ning 
bodies had now introduced pro- 
grammes, including out-oFsea- 
son fcsth«. 

“We have not press e d tbe 
remaining bodies because the 
Drag Control Centre at Chelsea 


tfid not have the ability to carry 
out aft the testing. But now we 
have the resources,” she said. 

Both tbe RRI and LTA win 
have to agree to random testing 
of players if they are to ensure 
they receive government grants. 

In the last financial year, the 
Rugby Union received £12^85 
and the LTA £54,128 in direct 
grants. In regional capital grant 
and loan expemfitnre, toe Rugby 
Union received £234,722 and the 

LTA £584.079. 

In tbe year up to March 31, a 
local of 2000 drag tests were 
carried out. of which about 80 i 
were positive, mostly for pro- 
scribed medic am ents for illness.

World Cup memories revived 


Paris (Reuter) - France and 
the Soviet Union, old World 
Cup adversaries, renew their 
rivalry in a battle for supremacy 
in group three of the European 
Championship today. 

‘The teams drew 1-1 in Mexico 
during the World Cup when 
they both readied the second 
round, but one win have to fell 
in this competition in which 
only tire group winners qualify 
for the 1988 finals in West 
Germany. . . . . 

Both dropped a pomt in their 
opening matches against under- 
rated Iceland in Reykjavik last 
month but remain favourites in 
a group which also includes East 
Germany and Nor way. 

France will be strengthened 
by the return of Michel Platini, 
who has not played for his 
country since the World Cup 
semi-final defeat by West Ger- 
many in Guadalajara on June 
25. They missed his influence in 
the 0-0 draw in Iceland when 
tbev looked bereft of ideas in a 
midfield already lacking the 
skills of Alain Guesse. who 
retired from international foot- 
ball along with Maxi me Bossis. 
d efender. after the Mexico 
adventure. 

Platini, who has been ham- 
pered by tendinitis, knows the 


end of his distinguished inter- 
national career is near bin, 
luckily for France, is prepared to 

cany on if needed. 

Eight of the team trim drew 
with tbe Soviet Union last June 

mil start the match, white the 

Soviet side will once again bear 
the stamp of brilliant European 
Cup-Winners’ Cup victors Dy- 
namo Kiev, who supply 10 of 
tbe 16-strong squad.

France have not beaten the

chel himself was in the side and 
Oleg Blokhin, an evergreen 
member of the current Soviet 
squad, was already on the scene.

Conner in 
another 
argument 

From Barry PtcktbaD 
In a further twist to the 
‘Glassgate’ controversy 
surrounding the New Zealand 
glassfibre America's Cup chal- 
lenger, Dennis Conner’s Stars 
and Stripes syndicate yesterday 
published the correspondence 


unifonnaliy. 

The syndicate president. 
Malia Burnham, who has sailed 
with Conner since hb 1980 Cup 
victory, said last night that the 
integrity of the Southampton- 
based surveyor, who oversaw 
the construction of the boat, or 
Lloyds itself was not in 
question. 

“But in the question of 
fibn^Iass hulls, it b almost 
impossible when laying down 
strips of rerinated doth to get 
uniformity of thickness and 
strength.” Burnham explained 
last night. “What we are asking 
for is a simple check. What we 
are saying is that when more 
sophisticated techniques are 
used for constructing yachts, 
more scientific methods of 
measuring them should be 
employed." 

Having demanded that core 
samples be taken from the New 
Zealand yacht, Burnham admit- 
ted that there were other meth- 
ods to check the thickness of 
hulL including ultrasonic tech- 
niques, and that hb syndicate 
would be happy for measurers to 
check the boat over this way 
provided the results were 
scientific. 

The New Zealand syndicate 
chairman, Michael Fay, said 
earlier that he could not under- 
stand why Conner had waited 
until now to bring up thb matter 
when it was known for a year 
that their challenger would be 
moulded in glassfibre. 

Burnham warned last night 
that unless a scientific approach 
was taken to measurement now 
with these first glassfibre boats, 
a precedent would be set that 
might make tbe rest of the 12- 
metre fleet obsolete. That of 
course b exactly what Alan 
Bond's wing keeled wonder. 
Australia II did back m 1983 
and many here in Fremantle are 
guessing that Conner was wor- 
ried that it might happen again.

THE TIMES SATURDAY OCTOBER II 1986 


• ■'r 


Tottenham faced with a 20-year leeway to make up 

Pleat fails to find flat spots 
in the Liverpool machine 


They used t o say that BID Shankly 
assassinated the character and ability of 
every member of the opposition before 



deed. 


Today, as Tottenham Hotspur step 
into the line of fire at AnfieW, David 
Pleat, their manager, like those before, 
him, could find no flat spot in the 
Liverpool machine after watching them 
in midweek. Instead he dedarecfc“Tbey 
were absolnteiy frightening.” 

“Of what r*e seen so far they are 
again die leading team,” Pleat said. 
Even cheered by the news that Gongfc 
Mabbtrtt, Stevens and Clive Allen were 
all fit after recent doubts. Pleat had to 
search for a silver lining. 

“At least yon know Liverpool aren't 
going to throw many high balls into the 
box. They're going to play football 
ogiinst yon hot they're going to play it 
better than anyone else in the first 
division. ” 

Liverpool have 
20-year start 

Pleat appreciates that the problem of 
competing against Liverpool is that they 
have a boot a 20-year start on everyone 
else. “When they went into the first 
division they knew the policy of. how to 
ran a dub. Peter Robinson, their 
secretary, has a lot to do with it. He's 
worked alongside all their managers. 

They've never varied their policy. 
Everyone's passionate about the dub. 
It's more than a job. Look how many of 
ttae backroom staff have played there — 
Evans, Moran, Molineux, Twentyman, 


Yeats, Dalglish, Lawler; There's an 
identity. 

“Some people who nsed to be at 
Liverpool talked about the ‘redpe’, 
‘We’ve got the redpe.’ I don't know 
about any redpe. But I A) know 
Liverpool do very well from die lower 

leagues. They’D pay oat for three or fimr 

in a season and one of them wfll make it 
They play the percentages. Look how 
many goalkeepers (Tottenham’s own 
Clemence, front Scunthorpe, included) 
they've had over die years from lower 
down.”. 

Pleat recognises that only die big 
dobs with big crowd potential can offer 
a realistic challenge Over a period. 
“Nottingham Forest’s success can only 
be fleeting. Eventually they wfll be 
forced to seli. lt was the same at Luton. 
Once yon had a successful season 
players wanted more money or a move, 
ft's a vicious drde.” 

At Tottenham, Pleat can only attempt 
to copy the good footballing habits of 
Liverpool. “Yon can't have any pre- 
conceived plan. I do, however, believe in 
a strong spine down the middle. I want to 
get the players to respect each other. 

“We have me or two exceptional 
individuals in the team and I've got to 
persuade them that it's better to pass 
early because it’s the speed of the ball 
and the angles that beat the opposition 
as much as the movement of the players. 
Look at Liverpool. They haven't got a 
dribbler. It's (mocked out of them. I'm 
told at Liverpool in seven-a-ddes if 
someone didn't do it their way they were 
hauled out and made to go lapping.” 

Pleat said that he had dime five deals 
in three months but that he would have 
to do much more. He is hiving that 
Claeses, signed last weekend for more 


than £600,000 from Standard Liege, wfll 
give him the host of pace that 
Tottenham have been lacking down the 
middle. He was very pleased with the 
pre-season formation in which Waddle 
and Galvin played wide. 

Claesen, like Gough, is 24 and his 
other signing, Thomas, is 21. They are 
an investment for the f ht me and yoang 
enough to lurid, their price if things do 
not writ out 

A new player is 
like a new coat 


After watching Oaescn, who has been 
cleared to play today, in training, Pleat 
observed* "It’s like btvying a new coat for 
yonr wife and not being snre if it’s going 
to fit her. Bnt when yon see her in it yon 
realize it wasn’t a bad bny. He’s got a lit- 
tle bit of pace, he’s certainly brave, 
there’s no stamina problems and he 
speaks English well enough. Also he's 
European, not Sooth American, so he’s 
45 minntes away by plane. We've 
advised him to bay a boose here 
eventually rather than rent” 

He added that he thought Claesen 
was that mach mature since spending an 
indifferent period four years ago with 
Stuttgart “Keegan told me in Mexico 
that foreign players can become alien- 
ated in Germany.” 

Pleat knows only too wefl the im- 
portance of meeting challenges when 
you're still young' “Gordon Lee told me 
once you’ve got to make the moves while 
yon have the energy and enthusiasm. 
Now is the time for me to fail or 
succeed.”

Mean horse who 
nearly died f 
wins top prize 

By Jenny MacArthur 



Speedie demands a transfer 


David Speedie demanded a 
transfer yesterday when he and 
Chelsea's other unsettled play- 
ers. McLaughlin and S packman, 
met John Hollins, the manager, 
to discuss their future. 

The Scotland international 
made his request following his 
omission, along with the other 
two. from the side which beat 
York City in the Linlewoods 
Cup in midweek. It also follows 
a report in a Sunday newspaper 
that Speedie was involved dur- 
ing the summer in a brawl with 
Canoville, who has now left the 
cluh. 

Hollins said: “Speedie has 
asked for a transfer, but until I 
have the chance to speak to my 
chairman there is nothing else to 
say. Anything 1 might add 
would only increase the specula- 
tion surrounding the dub.” 
Speedie, who was signed from 
Darlington for £70,000 four 
years ago, would now fetch 
around 10 times that figure. 

His transfer request follows 
that of McLaughlin, which was 
immediately turned down. 
McLaughlin, also a Scot, said he 
was being taken for granted and 
that Chelsea's dismal start to the 


By Clive White 

season had thwarted his inter- 
national ambitions. The pair of 
them and Spademan wifi miss 
the game against West Ham at 
Upton Park and play. for the 
reserves against Chari ion at 
Stamford Bridge. Chelsea fin- 
ished sixth in the league last 
season. 

One must go back a long way 
in Howard Kendall's reign to 
find the last occasion Everton 
lost three consecutive matches. 
But it would be a mistake to 
think that after losing to Totten- 
ham Hotspur, Liverpool and 
Arsenal, Kendall has lost his 
golden touch. On the contrary, 
he has performed with ad- 
mirable skill in guiding Everton 
as for up the table as fifth place. 

Today they face Charlton 
Athletic at SeUmrst Park, still 
fielding only half a first-choice 
team. SouthaiL Van den Hauwe, 
Reid, Brace well, Stevens. 
MountfieJd and Pointon are still 
absent with long-term injuries. - 
And for two of those last three 
defeats, they have been without 
the cniriai presence of Heath, 
who has done so well in replac- 
ing the enormous void left by 


Lineker's departure to Barce- 
lona. 

Aspinall, signed from Wigan 
Athletic in January for 
£100.000. could also help to give 
Everton a fillip in attack. He 
scored five times during the 
week, in the reserves’ 7-0 defeat 
of Middlesbrough. Chariton, 
who have yet to win at home 
this season, see this as their 
chance to pul a quality feather in 
their rapL Lee has been in good 
form Tor them up front and in 
contrast to Everton their only 
injury doubt concerns Hum- 
phrey at foil bade. If he does not 
recover from a foot injury, Grin 
will take over. 

Andy Gray, a former Everton 
favourite, who has spent more 
time in the treatment room than 
he or his many supporters 
■would wish, may play his first 
League game in six months for 
Aston villa, who are at home to 
Southampton. Gray hobbled off 
with another injury, this time to 
bis ankle, after scoring twice in 
midweek against Renting. El- 
liott. who has had stitches in a 
cut eyebrow, is another who is 
prepared to fight on in the 
renewed cause of Villa.

Injuries 

plague 

United 

Manchester United players 
have been in the wars again this 
week — even at training (Clive 
White writes). The central de- 
fender, Kevin Moran, injured at 
Port Vale on Tuesday, has had 
to pull out of today's league 
game at home to Sheffield 
Wednesday and the Republic of 
Ireland's European Champion- 
ship qualifier against Scotland 
in Dublin next week. 

Moran, who needed four 
stitches in a gashed forehead 
after the Littiewoods Cup tie, 
said: “l don't know how many 
times I’ve had to pull out of 
Irish squads because of injuries. 
It's worse because this is the 
most important game we have 
bad in years.” 

United may also be without 
Olsen and Moses, involved in a 
mysterious training accident 
which left Olsen also requiring 
stitches in a head wound. Mo- 
ses, who scored two goals 
against Port Vale, is doubtful 
because of an ankle ligament 
problem.

Peter Charles riding Cecil 
Williams' April Sun. the horse 
who nearlv died from a twisted 
gut in April, won yesterdays 
£3,000 first prize in the Everest 
Double Glazing final over foe 
biggest course of foe week so tar. 

Their win. foe second for 
Charitt this week, came at foe 
expense of Harvey Smith on 
Sanyo Shining Example foe 
only other rider to reach the 

■^^erwards Charles, who 
competes with foe Bmisft team 
on next month’s North Ameri- 
can lour, said of April Sun: nc 
hates people — mean from the 
day he was bom. but he is a Meat 
horse to ride.” His near fatal 
illness occulted in April during 
the boat crossing to foe World 
Cup final in Sweden. He had 

four months off but has returned 
to top class showjumping better 
than ever, as he proved yes- 
terday - _ . . 

The big course for the first 
round quickly took its toll 
despite foe high class entry. 

David Broome and Pheonw, 

Park plunged through foe diffi- 
cult planks at fence six and 
retired. Philip Heifer was next to 
retire after View Point, 
succumbing to his old problem, 
refused at foe second part of the 
combination. 

Even Whitaker, on the mighty 
Milton, had on extraordinary 
debacle at foe wall, foe last pan 
of foe combination, but made a 
good recovery to finish on four 
faults. 

Earlier. Geoff Billington 
achieved a rare double at Wem- 
bley when he won foe compet- 
itive Norwich Union National RwTarMte 

Grade C championship having 

already won Tuesday s spmt 3 .Mr®KiMrePL 88 -TByiorsRuat)r 

Foxhunter championship. 


Both wins came on the 10- 
year old Edisford Bridge, a horse 
Billington described as a “vir- 
tual write-off* when he bought 
him last year. "To win foe 
Foxhunter with him was excit- 
ing enough,” Billington said., 
yesterday. ”1 never dreamt we’d 
get the Grade C as well” . 

Before this week Billington 
had just one Wembley win to his 
credit having competed here 
since 1972, Yesterday be went 
fourth in the seven horse jump- 
off which was dominated by 
professional riders, including 
Nick Skelton on Raffles Duel 
and David Broome cm 
Lannsgan, both of whom failed 
to go dear against foe dock. 

Before Billington went into 
foe arena be was told “to go like 
hell” by bis friend John 
Whitaker who had iust watched

clear round on Everest Oyster — 
she finished third.

CRICKET 

Gilbert boosts his 
Test chances 

From Richard Streeton, Baroda 

David Gilbert staked a claim 
to retain his place in the 
Australian team for foe third 
Test match in Bombay when foe 
touring side began a three-day 
match with Delhi here 
yesterday. 

The Indian champions 
reached 275 for five by foe dose, 
with Gilbert bowling with 
plenty of hostility to finish with 
force for 52. He played in the 
rain-ruined second Test in 
Delhi, when he came in for foe 
onwefl Reid. Reid is certain to 
return next Wednesday, so the 
other fast bowling place rests 
between Gilbert or McDermott. 

In fierce sunshine foe Austra- 
lians had a gruelling time, with 
douds of swirling dust from 
large, ungrassed parts of an 
uneven ouifidd adding to their 
problems. 

Bright foe Victoria State 
captain, led foe Australians, 
whose fast bowlers obtained 


plenty of lift from foe baked 
pitch. Reid, the 6ft 8in left-arm 
bowler, was . foe steadiest; 
McDermott also hinted that be 
is coming to terms with his short 
run, while Bright and Matthews 
were able to turn the ball 
Khanna, who toured England 
in 1979, survived a hard return 
chance to Waugh at 26, but 
made some attractive strokes in 
a first-wicket stand of 93, before 
Gilbert had him leg-before. Two 
youngsters. Manu Nair and 
Bhaskar Pfllai, then made a 
good impression, Nair going on 
to make 72 before falling fbw to 
Bright, his partner making 41 
before McDermott trapped him 
in similar fashion. 

Amamatb hit Matthews for a 
straight six before he pushed 
forward and was caught behind. 
And Gilbert took his third 
wicket when Lamba sliced a 
drive to Waugh, in foe gaily.

Australian touring team being 
irresistible, swashbuckling and 
perfect exponents of foe arts of 
rugby league, is not cutting 
much ice in Wigan. 

The directors, players and 
spectators at Central Park 
remember that in foe 1982 tom- 
game the Kangaroos were given 
foe fright of their lives before 
winning 13-9, and were hanging 
on to foe ropes at foe end of foe 
match, with Wigan several 
times dose to a winning try. 

On that tour, which is now 
assuming legendary proportions 
after only four years, Bradford 
Northern also ran the tourists 
very close, so Wigan are not 
disposed to face a psychological 
banicr of fear and respect in 
tomorrow's game against the 
Australian class of 1986. 

Wigan, who wfll have a crowd 
of around 25,000 roaring as only 
an English .crowd can roar 
against the Australians, expect 
to catch the tourists still finding 
their way about England, and 


opposition they can expect ihu 
time around. 

If Hanley is fit. and foe borne 
side expect him to be, his 
powerful running, and the idio- 
syncratic bobbing and weaving 
of Henderson Gill will cause 
severe problems for even foe 
hyper-tough Australian defence. 
A great deal will depend on 
whether Graeme West can bring 
out a pack performance from 
Wigan that will provide a. 
reasonable platform for Wigan’s' 
running hades.

“I tell you what, I wish it 
was - Brands Hatch or

noon instead of Mexico City". 
That was Nigel Mansell's ver- 
dict on the Hermanos Rodri- 
guez circuit after his first two 
hours of testing here with bis 
Canon WUliams-Honda. 

Mansell was third quickest 
behind Ayrton Senna and 
Nelson Piquet at the end of 
the initial tests but was having, 
something of a rough ride over 
the bumpy sections of what is 
already proving to be a 
challenging circuit. A main 
preoccupation for all the 
teams during tbe next two 
days will be tuning their cars' 
suspension to absorb the 
worn of the jolting withont 
impairing cornering power 
and lap speeds. 

Senna’s fastest time In foe 
preliminary tests of just under 
1 minute 20 seconds, averag- 
ing 123.8mph, was achieved 
with the help of an experi- 
mental turbo compressor on 
the Renault engine of bis JPS 
Lotus and if this continues to' 
show an advantage the other 
Renault teams — Tyrrell and 
i-j giw — may have similar 
equipment by tomorrow. AD
