ibe recommendations of the 
Security Commission after a 
major investigation. 

The inquiry into allegations 
of serious security breaches 
within 9 Signal Regiment, 
based just outside Ayios 
Nikolaos in Cyprus, was or- 
dered by Mrs Thatcher follow- 
ing the charging of eight 
servicemen two years ago 
under the Official Secrets Act. 

The five RAF men and two 
soldiers of 9 Signal Regiment, 
were eventually acquitted on 
all the charges which involved 
the aUeged passing of secrets 
to the Russian agents. The 
trial at the Central Criminal 
Court lasted for 107 days in 
closed session last October. 

The Security Commission, 
which admitted in its report 
published yesterday that the 
acquittals had placed them in 
a difficult situation, continued 
with the inquiry because a

Service M15 had already

that once these recommenda- 
tions and those proposed by 
the earlier MIS investigation 
team were fully implemented, 
everything ’ “humanly 
possible” would have been 
done to minimise the danger 
of further breaches of security. 

Last night, however, the 
Ministry’ of Defence said that 
the recommendations would 
in some cases be difficult to 
fully implement. 

A ministry spokesman 
pointed out that the Sccurity 
Commission itself had 
acknowledged that it would 
not be possible for 9 Signal 
Regiment to carry out its role 
without employing a consid- 
erable number of servicemen 
under the age of 2 1 . The work 
was difficult and required a 
high degree of concentration 
and skill.

Mr Douglas Hurd, the

the Chief Constable of Essex 
on the Jeremy Bamber murder 
investigation amid growing 
concern over police handling

As MPs called for an in-

said that after receiving the 
report he will consult Sir 




Majesty's Chief Inspector of 
Constabulary, on what action 
he should take. 

It was Sir Lawrence who 
conducted toe official inquiry

leased here yesterday. 

The 375-page report, by a 
panel of American experts, 
was sponsored by the National 
Academy of Sciences (NAS) 
and the Institute of Medicine. 
It is said to be toe most 
comprehensive study of the 
Aids crisis to date. 

The report says a co- 
ordinated programme against 
Aids would cost $2 billion 


end of the decade. 

It says that Aids threatened 
to kill 50,000 Americans a 
year by 1991 and would affect 
an increasing number of 
heterosexuals and children. 

“Sex education in the 
schools is no longer only 
advice about reproductive 
choice.” the panel said, “but 
' has now become advice about 
a life or death matter." 

Aids required “perhaps the 
most wide-ranging and inten- 
sive efforts ever made against 
an infectious disease”.

Ivory tower gibe 
angers LSE chief 


The Director of the London School of Economics, Mr 
lndrapra&ad CorihaaMni Patel, has the Secretary 
of State for Education and Science to task for his 
accusations last week that academics are tiring in Ivory 
towers (Oar Education Reporter writes). 

Mr Kenneth Baker's comments to the Lords select 
committee on science and technology are known to have an- 
gered many dons. 

In a letter to him, Mr Patel says that Mr Baker's ev- 
idence “reveals an apparent lack of awareness of the extent 
of successful collaboration between universities and 
industry". 

Offering the LSE as an example, he draws attention to 
the fact Out 23 per cent of the school's research funding 
comes from commerce and indnstry. 

Academics are leading existences which are far from 
cloistered, be says, with many of them acting as consultants 
to industry and Whitehall.

displaying a 15 certifi-

The censors viewed the 
game at the request of Mr

Mr Chambers said vet-

The brother of one of the 
prisoners bolding a prison 
officer hostage at Saogbtoa 
jail in Edinbargh yesterday 
appealed to them on local 
radio to end the siege which 
began on Monday after an 
escape attempt went wrong. 

Earlier the officer was 
allowed to speak to senior 
prison staff. He told them 
he was unharmed and that 
there had been no violence. 

The men are protesting 
at conditions and the 
behaviour of staff. The 
Scottish Office has said 
that any allegations of 
brutality will be investi- 
gated by the police. 


Immigration attack 


The immigration system was Out of control and 
accountable only to itself, according to the annual report of 
the Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants, released 
yesterday. 

The report said that in a year in which “the priorities and 
beliefs of offi cials set the agenda, and during which their 
role in tightening control was rarefy challenged", many 
more Asian families were separated because of increasingly 
restrictive procedures and questioning. 

It said there had been a big rise in the use of arbitrary 
powers to detain and remove people alleged to be illegal en- 
trants. Officers were choosing to treat overstayers as illegal 
entrants, thus denying them proper rights of appeal. 


Vanished 


Alice 


The curious tale of a 
vanishing schoolgirl ac- 
tress has stumped the 
BBC. It is hunting Anne- 
Marie Mallik, who starred 
in a production of Alice in 
Wonderland when she was 
14. 

As part of its fiftieth 
anniversary, the BBC is 
repeating tin programme 
next Sunday and wants to 
give “Alice" her fee — but 
she has disappeared. 

Anne- Marie gave up act- 
ing after the part and later 
went to Cambridge Univer- 
sity, apparently to read 
law. Inquiries at the Law 
Society have drawn a 
blank. 





Deadly isle cleansed 


A small Scottish island which was infected with a deadly 
farm disease during germ warfare experiments in 1942 
conk) soon be safe. 

The Ministry of Defence said yesterday that de- 
contamination spraying on Gruinard bad' been completed 
and in eight weeks soil samples would be taken for 
analysis. 

However, the island, which is 50 miles west of Inverness, 
is expected to remain forbidden territory for at least a year, 
to ensure that all traces of the anthrax spores are 
eliminated. 

• A suspected case of anthrax was being investigated by 
the Ministry of Agriculture yesterday after the death of a 
cow at Wall Hope Farm, Tidenham, Gloucestershire. 


YTS accused of failing to help jobless 


By JD1 Sherman 

The Government's Youth 
Training Scheme has foiled to 
improve job prospects for 
young people, the youth 
employment organization, 
Youthaid. claims today. 

Us detailed analysis of Man- 
power Services Commission 
surveys since the scheme be- 
gan in 1983, shows that nation- 
ally fewer than six out of 10 
YTS leavers get work, nearly 
one in three join the jobless 
queue and one in 10 goes into 
education, or “something 
else". 

Barely a third of black YTS 


leavers are able to find work 
within three months, the re- 
port says. It also shows that 
four out of five young people 
leave without any recognized 
qualification and a half do not 
even get the YTS’s own 
internal certificate. 

Those who entered the 
scheme with an O level had 
the best chance of a job.Fewer 
than half those who had no 
qualification when they joined 
YTS got a job at the end. 

“People who are blade, . 
people who live outside the 
inner South-east, people who 
have no qualifications, all 


suffer discrimination in the 
labour-market. The new analy- 
sis shows that the YTS foiled 
the very people it was de- 
signed to help," Mr Paul 
Lewis, the Youthaid director, 
said. 

But the Manpower Services 
Commission yesterday cl- 
aimed that Youthaid had 
based its figures on the YTS 
one-year scheme which was 
replaced by the two-year 
scheme last April. 

“Most of the things that 
Youthaid has picked up we are 
already tackling.,” tiie MSC 
said. 


“Research .due to be pub- 
lished next month shows that 


are 


nearl y th ree quarters of those 


on YTS in September 1984 
were in a full-time job IS 
months later." 

Mr Lewis attacked govern- 
ment plans to introduce tests 
for availability for work, 
which he said would dis- 
courage young people from 
studying while they were wait- 
ing for work. 

Lord Young of Grafiham,

looking for, whether they are 
prepared to travel, and what 
steps they have taken to find

Libya sends 


weapons 
and £lm 
to IRA 


By Richard Ford 


Security forces in Northern 
Ireland suspect that Libya 
provided more than £1 mil- 
lion for the political and 
military operations of the 
Provisional IRA last year mid 
also supplied much-needed 
weapons. 

In the republic, officials are 
convinced that 700 rounds of 
ammunition, a rifle and re- 
volver discovered in a plane at 
Dublin airport a year ago 
came from Libya. 

Yesterday the Irish govern- 
ment instiucted its ambas- 
sador in Rome, Mr Eamon 
Kennedy, to seek assurances 
from the Libyan People's Bu- 
reau that Libya would not 
offer cash or weapons to the 
Provisionals. 

Mr Peter Barry, Minister for 
Foreign Affairs, said dip- 
lomatic relations were at an 
all-time low because of Colo- 
nel Gadaffi's reiteration of 
support for the Provisionals 
and that though the republic 
wished to continue links with 
the people of Libya it would be 
prepared to break off rela- 
tions. 

Meanwhile, the opposition 
leader. Mr Charles Haughey. 
was in the embarrassing pos- 
ition of being described by the 
Libyan leader as a “friend" 
whom he hoped would win the 
next general election. With an 
election due before November 
1987. it is the kind of endorse- 
ment Mr Haughey, who met 
the Libyan leader two years 
ago, can do without. 

Colonel Gadaffi refused to 
say if he had supplied arms to 
the Provisionals directly but 
added: “We are obliged to 
support the cause because we 
think it is a just cause." 

He said that if he was leader 
in the South he would con- 
sider Northern Ireland as a 
colony and would fight to 
"liberate that part of my 
country". Colonel Gadaffi 
called on young people in the 
North and South to take part 
in the "struggle for 
liberation". 


It is the second time this 
year that Colonel Gadaffi has 
reaffirmed support for the 
Provisionals but of more con- 
cern to the British and Irish 
governments is the belief that 
he is financing its growing 


political and military cam- 
paigns. 

This year, 140 Soviet-made 
assault rifles and German- 
made weapons were discov- 
ered in three arms dumps in 
Co Roscommon and Co Sli_ 
in crates marked "Libyan 
Armed Forces”, but this was 
thought to be a deliberate 
attempt to divert attention 
from the real source. 

The link between Colonel 
Gadaffi and the Provisionals 
began in 1972. This led to an 
attempt to smuggle five tons 
of Russian-made weapons, 
mines and explosives into the 
republic aboard the Claudia in 
1973. That foiled when the 
Irish Navy intercepted the 
boat. 

But the links deteriorated 
after “loyalist" paramilitaries 
sent a delegation to Tripoli 
and persuaded the govern- 
ment that the troubles in 
Northern Ireland were not 
simplya war of liberation. 

The suspicion that the 
connection has been resumed 
is based on threats by Colonel 
Gadaffi to renew support for 
the Provisionals after the mur- 
der of WPC Yvonne Fletcher 
outside the Libyan People's 
Bureau in London and the 
expulsion of Libyan 
diplomats. 

Meanwhile security forces 
in Northern Ireland are on foil 
alert for an upsurge in Pro- 
visional IRA violence before 
this weekend’s conference in 
Dublin of its political wing. 

With the Provisional Sinn 
Fein leadership hoping to 
pursuade delegates to allow 
elected representatives to sit 
in the Dail. police fear the 
military men will attempt to 
demonstrate that the cam- 
paign of terror will continue 
un diminished. 

In Ballybay. Co Monaghan, 
today there will be tight 
security for the court appear- 
ance of Mr Peter Robinson, 
deputy leader of the DUP, on 
charges arising out of a loyalist 
incursion into the south in the 
summer. It is expected that 
the State will apply to have the 
case transferred to the non- 
jury special criminal court in 
Dublin. 

British and Irish ministers 
meet tomorrow in London to 
discuss border security. 


Social attitudes 


Conservative voters shift to the left 


By Peter Evans 
Home Affairs 


Correspondent 


The Conservative Party has 
lost some of its most loyal 
support in a a clear and 
continuous shift to the left 
since the last general election, 
according to an annual survey 
by Social and Community 
Planning Research, a leading 
independent institute. 

Support has dropped among 
the sort of people to whom the 
Conservative Party might be 
expected to have firm appeal: 
the self-employed non-pro- 
fessionals, whether manual or 
n on-man uaL Support among 
them for the Conservatives 
fell by 20 per cent between 
1984 and 1985. 

The survey suggests this 
may be because the self- 
employed are much more 
likely than employees to ex- 
press an increased pessimism 
about the Government’s eco- 
nomic performance. 

The survey, reported in t 
British Social Attitudes, the 
I9S6 Report, seeks to explore 


Conservative supporters 
have a more restrictive atti- 
tude to sexual liberty than 
those of the other two parties, 
according to the report. 

On abortion, there has been 
a significant shift since 1983 
in favour of legal abortion for 
reasons of preference, and a 
similar but smaller shift to- 
wards abortion for reasons of 
health. 

About half the population 
surveyed believes abortion 
should be legal if the couple 


cannot afford more children, if 
the woman is unmarried, or if 
either the couple or the woman 
on her own decide not to have 
the child. 

A large majority endorses 
assisted methods of concep- 
tion if no third party is 
involved. According to 46 per 
cent of the sample, surrogate 
motherhood without payment 
should be legally allowed, 
while only 27 per cent agree 
with commercial paid 
surrogacy.

strongly. If the decline in 
Conservative identification 
were the result of no more 
than a mid-ierm bout of 
disillusionment, then a loss of 
support could be expected 
among people who were less 
than partisan and who had 
little more than a current 
electoral preference. 

But the survey shows the 
tall in identification with the 
party has been heaviest among 
the partisan, those with the 
strongest and most long- 
standing attachment In 1983, 
24 per cent of the population 


were partisan Conservative, 
compared with 19 per cent in 
1985. Overall there has been a 
fall from 3S per cent to 31 per 
cent in those, including the 
partisan supporters, who iden- 
tify with the Conservative 
Party. 

In contrast there has been a 
small increase in Labour and 
Alliance partisanship, the re- 
port says. Each survey, among 
a random sample of about 
1.800 people nationwide, is 
sponsored by a combination 
of charitable, government and 
private sources. 


Concern about countryside future 


A high level of concern 
about the fote of the country- 
side is shown among people 
questioned for the report. 


those who live in the country 
are more likely to have a 
critical view of modem form- 
ing methods. 


About a third professed 
themselves personally veiy 
concerned and a third “a bit 


concerned". The data suggests 
that all parties would benefit 
from the adoption of policies 
»o protect the countryside. 


Pollution, whether indus- 
trial or agricultural, is seen as 
the greatest threat, with two- 
thirds of the sample agreeing 
that modem fanning methods 
damage the countryside. In- 
terestingly. the survey says. 


Nearly half the sample 
thinks the countryside has 
changed a lot in the pasL 20 
years, just under a quarter 
thinks there has been some 
change and about one-fifth 
thinks it much the same- 
suburbanites. those living in 
the margin between city and 
country', are particularly likely 
to think that the. countryside 
Iks changed. 



ry few respondents, only 
" .one in 10. thought the 


changes are for the better. 

Since 1983. there has been* a 
slight diminution of concern 
about the threat posed to the 
environment by pollution. 
During that period there has 
been an increase (from 15 per 
cent to 23 per cent) in support 
for the construction of more 
nuclear power stations. 

But, the report says, the 
Chemobvl disaster had not 
happened when.lhe fieldwork 
was completed in 1985. Also, 
minor accidents at Scllafield 
have since been reported and 
local concern has arisen about 
moves to examine sites for the 
disposal of nuclear waste. 


The survey measures a 
significant trend to the left 
among all respondents on 
welfare and defence. Those 
saying Britain should keep 
nuclear weapons fell from 
77 per cent in 1983 to 68 per 
cent in 1985. 

There has been an increase 
since 1983 in the proportion 
preferring an increase in taxes 
rather than cuts in spending 
on health, education or social 
benefits. 

Almost unchanged since 
last year is the somewhat 
surprising finding that most of 
the population (55 per cent) 
believes that Russia and 
America are equally great 
threats to world peace. Since 

1984. the majority against 
American cruise missiles re- 
mains unchanged, with 53 per 
cent saying they make Britain 
less safe. Although most peo- 
ple still favour Britain's pos- 
session of its independent 
nuclear deterrent, the margin 
has declined from 60 per cent 
to 54 per between 1983 and 

1985. 

And ihere has been a 
marked increase in uni- 
lateralism between 1983 and 
1985. from 19 per cent to 
27 per cent, with the change 
particularly marked among 
Labour supporters. Almost 
one quarter of the population 
believes a nuclear war be- 
tween Russia and the West is 
very or quite likely before the 
end of the century. 

More than three-quarters of 
the sample favours capital 
punishment for murders con- 
nected with terrorism. 71 per 
cent for murders of policemen 
and two-thirds for other mur- 
ders.

Thatcher 


doubts on 
missiles 
proposals 


By Michael Evans 
Whitehall Correspondent 


Mr Max Kampdman, the 


chief US aims negotiator, wiB 
confirm to the British Gov- 
ernment today that President 
Reagan’s proposal to elimi- 
nate ballistic nuclear missiles 
within 10 years is now part of 
the official American package 
at the talks in Geneva. 

Yesterday it was not dear to 
the Government whether the 
proposal, which was one of the 
key elements of the Reykjavik 
summit, had been tabled for- 
mally or was firstto be subject 
to thorough consultation with 
all the allies. 

British officials believe that 
this proposal is not in any way 
realistic, although in public it 
has been given support by the 
Nato governments. 

Mrs Thatcher is expected to 
underline both to Mr Kamp- 
^iman ) who arrives in London 
today, and to President 
Reagan when she sees him in 
Washington next month, that 
she has no intention of patting 
Trident into the arms control 
calculations. 

Trident, which will replace 
Polaris as Britain’s indepen- 
dent deterrent, is due to come 
into service in the 1990s and 
there is no plan, to slow down 
the development of the missile 
system because of the Reyk- 
javik “dream" of a 10-year 

/jfttrilinp for the dismantling 

of ail ballistic missiles. 

So for £620 million has been 
spent on Trident 

One Whitehall source said 
yesterday that lull consulta- 
tion with the British Govern- 
ment would be expected 
before the ballistic missile 
proposal was officially put 
before the Soviet Union 


Thatcher 
opens last 
M25 link 


By Rodney Cowton 
Transport Correspondent 


The Prime Minister yes- 
terday opened the final section 
of the M25 and attacked those 
who had criticized the 
"magnificent British achieve- 
ment." 

Mrs Thatcher said the 117 
mile ring road was one of the 
world's greatest highways. 

She cot a ribbon at 1 1.15am 
and even helped to remove a 
row of traffic cones, bat it was 
not until lpm that police 
allowed ordinary vehicles on to 
the new section, which links 


the MI to the AI at Sooth 
Minims in Hertfordshire. 


The first breakdown occ- 
urred within a minute — it 
happened dose to where Mr 
John Moore, Secretary of 
State for Transport, was giv- 
ing an interview. However, a 
large police presence ensnred 
that the car was removed 
before a hold-up could 
develop. 

The opening of the new 
section brings the interchange 
between the M25 and the Ml 
into full use — for the last two 
weeks it has only been open to 
traffic travelling from the west 
along the M25. 

The interchange, which is 
expected to handle about 
150,000 vehicles a day, does 
not maintain full motorway 
standards for all users — 
mot o rists malting certain 
turnings have to use a short 
section of A405 dual carriage- 
way before getting back on to 
the motorway. 

One of those closely in- 
volved in the bonding of the 
intersection said that where 
turnings were only likely to be 
lightly used it had not been 
thought worth the cost of 
giving them an unbroken 
motorway connection. 

The new section of the M25 
has cost an estimated £4 
million a kilometre to build 
because of special measures to 
protect the environment. 

By mid-afternoon the M25 
had visibly taken over from the 
A 405 as the main East- West 
artery in the area, hot a filling 
station attendant at OusweD 
Green near St Albans, said 
that traffic was still coming off 
the M25 for fuel, because the 
motorway has no service sta- 
tions in use. 

After the opening Mr 

Moore announced that various 
types of fog detector and 
warning systems were to be 
tried out over the next two 
winters, and the chosen sys- 
tem would be installed at 30 
fog-prone sites on the M25. 
The system would then be 
assessed to determine whether 
it should be installed on other 
motorways. 


Knowsley North by-election 


Militant accused 
of misconduct 


By Richard Evans, Political Correspondent 


The Labour: _ 

officially accused the Militant 
Tendency of corruption and 
law-breaking in the Knowsley 
North by-election. 

Mr Ray GilL, the party’s 
North-west regional officer, 
called on the election return- 
ing officer to investigate a 
Militant leaflet which he 
claimed contravened the Rep- 
resentation of the People Act. 

The handbill, widely .cir- 
culated in the MereeySide 
constituency, advertises, a 
Militant meeting tonight and 
tails on Tendency supporters 
to vote for Mir George 
Howarth, the Labour can- 
didate, in tbe poll on Novem- 
ber 13. 

Under electoral law, expen- 
diture promoting a par- 
liamentary candidate can be 
incurred only by an election 
agent or authorized by him in 
writing, Mr Gill said. 

In a letter to Mr Richard 
Penn, the Knowsley North 
electoral registration officer, 
he asked for an immediate 
inquiry into the activities of 
Militant for allegedly tweaking 
the law. 

In a separate letter to Mili- 
tant. Mr Gill said its action 
could be judged to be corrupt 
practice and he demanded 
that it withdrew tbe leaflets. 

Militant yesterday invited 
Mr Ho worth, the Labour can- 
didate, to attend its rally this 
evening, which will be ad- 
dressed by three Tendency 
supporters expelled from the 
Labour Party. 


"Since Militant is trying so 
hard and so publicly to dam- 
age the Labour Party, it will be 
more appropriate if it invites 
the other candidates whose 
cause it is serving,” Mr 
Howarth said last night 
Mr Richard Venton, Mili- 
tant's chief spokesman on 
Merseyside, also launched a 
counter membership drive af- 
ter an earlier appeal by Mr 
Howarth aimed at attracting 
more moderates to join the 
local constituency paa 
Militant has made dear its 
intention to oust Mr Howarth 
after his expected by-election 
victory. Mr Venton called on 
Labour sympathizers to join 
the party and defend the right 
to select and replace Labour 
MFs with socialists "when 
necessary". 

While the Militant issue 
continues to dog Labour, Miss 
Rosemary Cooper, the SDP-

having an easy time either.

racism allegations earlier this 
year, has been removed from

School.

He appeared on the same 
platform as the former Brad- 
ford headteacher, Mr Ray 
Honeyford, at Bristol Univer- 
sity last Thursday. 

Mr Savery said yesterday: "I 
have no feeling of animosity 
and feel enormous, respect for 
the school. Perhaps the school 
is being mindful of the effects 
of all the publicity 1 have been 
attracting.” 

However, he added that he 
could not rule out tbe possibil- 


ity that the local education 
authority was succumbing to 
pressure from militant mem- 
bers of the National Union of 
Teachers at the Avon Multi- 
cultural Gentre. 

Avon County Council said 
Mr Savery was expected to 
receive an official explanation 
of the decision in a few days. 

Mr. Savery attracted criti- 
cism after writing an article for 
the Salisbury Review in July 
1985, describing anti-racism, 
as the new witchcraft of the 
left. The criticism came from a 
powerful section of staff 
within an anti-racist sub- 
group calling Itself -MACAW 
(Multi-cultural Education 
Afro-Carribbean and Asian 
Workers’ Group.) 

He was subsequently 
cleared of allegations of rac- 
ism by a local, authority 
disciplinary panel in May. 


Charter to 
protect 
consumers 
criticized 


Sheila Gunn 


* a consumer charter which 

will end tbe sort of struggle for 

compensation endured by the 
parents of thalidomide chil- 
dren is to be introduced next 
month. 

The Consumer Protection 
Bill., to be announced in the 
Queen's Speech, will make it a 
criminal offence to. supply 
unsafe goods, and will mean 
that producers can be sued for 
any damage caused by their 
goods. It will also put an end 
to shops placing bogus price 
on goods for sale at 


duced prices. 

The BSI1 is expected to be 
introduced in the House of 
Lords early in tbe new session- 
A1 though not considered 
politically sensitive, it has 
been criticized by consumer 
groups for not going for 
enough. 

Its main provisions, govern- 
ing product liability, backs up 
an SBC directive calling for an 
end to the need for consumers 
to prove negligence, ft comes 
after a 24-year court struggle 
by 452 children in Britain who 
were deformed after their 
mothers were prescribed thali- 


domide during pregnancy. 
Mr David Tench, 


legal ad- 
viser to the Consumers’ 
Association, said he would 
fight a loophole by which 
producers could still avoid 
penalty by proving that scien- 
tific and technological know- 
ledge was 9'd* that the extent 
of the defect could not have 
been known. 

He was also against the 
exemption of food and veg- 
etables from the Ust of goods 
covered by the BflL 
The new law, which is not 
expected to come into force 
until 1988, will end the prac- 
tice, common in some stores, 
of raising prices and then 
immediately dropping them 
to irbiim that they were bar- 
gains at prices often much less 
than the origin&L 


Individual 
offers for 


printers 


By Tim Jones 

News International is 
considering offering 
compensation on an individ- 
ual basis to all of its 5,500 
former employees who went 
on strike antt were then dis- 
missed. ' 

Earlier this month a ballot 
of Sogaf 82 and the National 
Graphical Association, the 
two main print unions in- 
volved in the dispute, rejected 
the company’s final oner of 
compensation of £58miltion. 

The company, which prints 
its four national titles at its 
high technology plant in 
Wanting, east London, said 
then that it would set up a 
procedure to consider any 
cases individually. 

Now, in view of the number 
of inquiries from former 
employees and discussions 
with senior officials of the 
Advisory Conciliation and 
Arbitration Service (Acas), the 
company is considering pay- 
ing compensation to all for- 
mer employees who apply for 
ft. 

. In return, the company will 
requite undertakings from the 
people who apply that they 
accept the mne-month-okl 
dispute is over and that they 
will play no further port in it 

The company has empha- 
sized there is no prospect of 
entering into new talks with 
the unions and is determined 
to adhere only to the “best, 
last and final offer" which the 
unions rejected on October 8. 

Under the deal, each dis- 
missed worker whose total 
earnings were obtained exclu- 
sively from the company 
lira receive £820 for each 
completed year of continuous 
service with a minimum pay- 
ment of £2,000. Other workers 
would receive £620 per year 
with the same minimum 
Mr Dennis Boyd, the Acas 
conciliation officer, has writ- 
ten to Mr Tony Dubbins, 
general secretary of the NGA, 
outlining the proposal. 

' Acas officials have had 
eliminary talks with of- 
aals of the Amalgamated 
Engineering Union, whose 
members also rejected the 
final offer, and plan to meet 
representatives of Sogaf82, 
the bfogest union involved. 
Last night, Acas said: "Acas 

has now taken steps to explain 

its procedures to the trades 
unions in dispute with the 
company and to members 
who have lodged complaints 
with the Industrial Tribunal". 

- When a person takes a 
to an industrial trib unal Acas 
is automatically informed and 
can help to reach an agree- 
ment between the two parties 
without recourse to the full 
tribunal process.

By Our Property Correspondent 
The Government yesterday the associations in 1987-88. 


announced a new hoi 
finance scheme which 
help homeless people and 
those moving to find jobs. 

For tiie first time public and 
private money wUl be used to 
provide low-cost housing for 
renLMr John Patten. Min- 
ister for Housing, Urban Af- 
fairs and Construction, said 
this was a “major break- 
through in housing finance". 

He said that schemes being 
developed by boosing associ- 
ations and the Government 
will use np to 30 per cent 
public money. 

The housing associations, 
with grants from the Housing 
Corporation, baSd 15^000 
homes a year, and the injection 
of private money could triple 
the number. Until this new 
initiative any scheme involving 
private finance received no 
Housing Corporation grant 

Mr Patten, speaking at the 
annual conference of the Na- 
tional Housing and Town 
Planning Connell in Bourne- 
mouth. said the Government 
would also make more money 
available to the Housing 
Corporation for distribution to 


The minister said his first 
priority for the money would 
be to help homeless 
Irving in bed and breakfast 
hotels and to assist young 
people who could not afford to 
move to take up jobs. 

"‘Using rtifc new s — ba i 
regime, combined with new 
provisions on assured ten- 
ancies in the Housing and 


ations will be able to provide 
decent accommodation for 
homeless families until perma- 
nent housing can be found." 

Turnmg to boosing for job 
movers, he said the Govern- 
ment had already taken a big 
step forward by opening the 
way in the Housing and Plan- 
ning B31 to more privately 
financed shared ownership 
schemes. 

He said the Government 
was discussing action with the 
Confederation of British In- 
dustry . and the Heaving 
Corporation, and asa first step 
were working on some inno- 
vative “flat share" schemes 
designed for young job movers. 
making ma ri m n ni use of pri- 
vate finance. 


obstacles to inner city build- 
ing. “There las to be a more 
effective partnership between 
the public and private sectors, 
and there must be more public 
sector pump priming. Much of 
the work needed to revive the 
environment of the inner 
cities, such as providing infra- 
structure, is unprofitable and 
the housebuilder cannot do it. 

“The extent of the 
Gove rnment' s stake is grossly 
inadequate and it places a 
limit on what the private 
housebuilder can do." 

There was also the big 
problem of affordability - the 
cost of land and building 
meant that those on low 
incomes could not afford to 
pay the open market price of 
housing. 

Mr Humber rejected the 
implicit criticism that 
housebuilders were to blame 
for inner city decay. Bad 
housing was a symptom of 
decay not the cause, and until 
measures were taken to deal 
with long-term unemploy- 
ment and the restructuring of 
the economy, housebuilders 
were as impotent as other 
industrialists. 

“We want to demonstrate, 
and can, our commitment to 
the inner cities. We can do 
more, but there are con- 
straints. And together with the 
amelioration of conditions in 
tiie inner cities, there must be 
an acceptance of social 
which means that 
_ oo greenfield sites is 
not only essential, it is 
welcome." He said that it was 
cheaper to build on greenfield 
sites than fo the timer cities, 
and only there was it possible 
to provide low-cost bousing 
that people could afford. 

The federation also rejected 
the Prince's assertion that at 
the present rate ofloss forming 
land would disappear in 200 
years.

Detention 
of wards 
challenged 


By FhuH& Gibb l _ 
Legal Affairs Correspondoit 

New Government regular 
tions which allow wards of 
court aged 10 or under to be 
locked up for indefinite peri- 
ods are in breach of the 
European Convention on Hu- 
man Rights, it was claimed 
yesterday. 

The Children's Legal Centre 
says in a letter to Mr Norman 
Fowler. Secredary of State for 
Social Services, that the 
regulations breach the rights 
guaranteed in the convention 
for individuals to a speedy 
public hearing with full rep- 
resentation. 

The centre is concerned that 
the regulations deprive wards 
of court in local authority care 
of legal rights and safeguards 
possessed by other young 
people in care. 

The regulations, presented 
to Parliament in the summer 
recess and now in force, allow 
the High Court and some 
county courts to lock up wards 
of court younger than 10 years 
old without the need to obtain 
permission from the Secretary 
of Slate, as local authorities 
must do for all other children 
in care. 

Nor. the centre says, are 
these courts governed by 
restrictions which stop juven- 
ile courts authorizing locking- 
up for an initial maximum 
period of three months and 
ftirther maximum of six 
months, although judges are 
still bound by the Child Care 
Act 19S0. 

Furthermore, it says, al- 
though the children m such 
cases are parties to . the 
proceedings and will have a 
“guardian ad litem" (someone 
instructed by the court to 
protect the child's interests), 
they will not have the right to 
instruct their own lawyer or be 
present at the hearing. 

That guardian will usually 
be a Civil Servant appointed 
by the official solicitor, who 
will advocate what he consid- 
ers to be the child's best 
interests and these might be 
“quite different from the 
ward's wishes" 


BT warned about 
cost of local calls 


By Teresa Poole, Business Corresp on dent 
British Telecom was yes- subsidy is now bang removed 


was 

teiday warnednot to make tog 
increases in the charges for 
local telephone calls. 

Professor Bryan Carsberg, 
director general of Tele- 
communications, the govern- 
ment watchdog for the 
industry, said: “If BT mo- 
poses such increases, I shall 
certainly look at them criti- 
cally and searchingjy .” 

In bis review of British 


as part of British Telecom's 
efforts to compete with its 
rival. Mercury Communica- 
tions. This weekend, some 
long distance calls will be up 
to 17 per cent cheaper. 

Professor Carsberg says he 
is satisfied that rebalancing 
has not been carried beyond 
the point justified by costs, but 
that the rales of return from 
trunk and local calls will now 
be about the same. He adds: “I 
do not expect further substan-

the 


Mercury Coramrakations 
is preparing to offer home 
telephone sabscribers a cut- 
price service in competition 
with British Telecom. 

The discoart trunk calling 
service will start to become 
available to the poblk early 
next year. 

Long-distance ralk, indad- 
ing international calls placed 
on the Merany network, are 
expecte d to be 12 to 19 percent 
cheaper than those node via 
British Telecom^H subscrib- 
ers will receive an itemized b31 
showing the destination, dura- 
tion and. cost of each call 
placed. Customers wifi have to 
boy a special telephone. 

The service is expected to 
prove especially popidar with 
customers who use their home 
telephones to place badness 
calls, because the itemized 
tolls can be nsed to accurately 
claim reimbursement. 


Telecom's recently announced 
price changes, which come 
into effect on Saturday, 
Professor Carsberg says that 
no case can be made for 
changing the price control 
formula which limits a num- 
ber of increases to three per- 
centage points below inflation. 

However, he has made a 
study of the “rebalancing" of 
charges where costs of long 
distance calls have been re- 
duced while charges for local 
calls have increased. 

Until privatization local 
calls were subsidised by long 
distance calls but this cross- 


large jump in peak rare local 
call prices which are going up 
by 18.9 per cent and would 
have liked to see a more 
gradual transition, thnngfr the 
total increase is justified on 
grounds of costs. “The change 
in the peak price was much 
greater than I would have 
liked to see in one step,* 
Professor Carsberg said. 

British Xriecom was unable 
to avoid the sharp jump 
because some of its exchanges 
can only alter unit call times in 
30-second steps. BT has now 
agreed to modify its metering 
systems. 

While not expecting such a 
big increase again for local 
calls, British Telecom said 
yesterday that it saw some 
scope for further reba la n ci ng 
of charges, particularly as the 
profitability of long distance 
calls was increasing at a faster 
rale than for local calls. 

British Telecom is criticized 
for not doing enough to 
explain the significance and 
effect to customers of the 
complex price changes. Home 
phone users need to be aware 
of the benefits of making calls 
m tte evening and of the great 

increase in cost when a call 
goes over the time allowed for 
one unit, the review says. 

With this weekend's 
changes, the average domestic 
user feces a 1.9 per cent 
increase in cost, while the 
average business customer’s 
costs win decrease. In its last 
financial year British Telecom

display at Liverpool on Au- 
gust 19, 1984 when it crashed. 

Thirty minutes after leaving 
East Midlands airport, ibe 
pilot reported engine prob- 
lems. The aircraft lost height, 
stalled and crashed upside 
down before bursting into 
flames at Marchington, near 
Uttoxeter, Staffordshire. 

An official report by the 
Department of Transport Ac- 
cidents Investigation Branch 
said the plane experienced a 
power loss on both engines. 

The left engine failure was 
caused by a split in a fuel 
pump diaphragm, which bad 
probably not been examined 
for 1 3-14 years. The reason for 
the right engine failure could 
not be established, but it was 
ible there was an ignition 
ilure because of ignition coil 
breakdown when more boost 
was required. 

The report also noted that 
the aircraft had suffered a left 
failure in September 
1981, only 10 flying hours 
before the accident. 

It said the plane had been 
regularly maintained but the 
Civil Aviation Authority had 
made no requirements about 
engine overhauls. It pointed 
out that components such as 
diaphragms cannot be ex- 
pected to fast indefinitely. 

It also suggested that 
maintenance procedures for 
historic aircraft should take 
into account deterioration of 
components over the years. 


$5m case oyer 
‘sweetheart’ 
film contract 


Mr Martin Starger, the film 
producer, yesterday claimed 
in the High Court that he is 
owed $5 million under a 
contract described as an 
‘over-generous sweetheart 
deal". 

Mr Staiger, aged 54, was 
alleged to have strode the deal 
with Lord Grade's former 
company, ATV. Now be is 
suing Loid Grade's successor, 
Mr Robert Hoftnes a Court 
Mr Sidney Kentridge, QC, 
for Mr Starger, told Mr Justice 
Mann that his client signed a 
$ 1 00,000-a-year five year con- 
tract from February 1977 to 
January 1982. The agreement 
also allowed him additional 
payment for any films in 
which he was involved. The 
contract has been described as 
a “sweetheart deal", Mr 
Kentridge said. “That means 
it is over-generous to one of 
the parties and must have 
been dictated by friendship, 
here the friendship of Lord 
Grade for Mr Starger”. 

The films for which Mr 
Starger is claiming payments 
include The Lone Ranger % 

The Bell Group,' which has a 
counter daim, says Mr Starger 
had nothing to do with the 
films and is owed nothing. 

The hearing continues 
today. 


Cocaine linked to fatal heart attacks 


By Keith Hindiey 

Cocaine damages the heart 
and prolonged use can lead to 

fatal heart attacks, according 
to pathologists at Stanford 
University Medical School, 
California. 

The researchers found the 
same streaks of damaged 
heart muscle in more than 90 
per cent of addicts who (Bed of 
cocaine poisoning. Similar 
damage was absent or barely 
evident in overdose victims of 
other drags. 

These findings, due to 
appear in Human Pathology, 
an American medical journal, 
explode the street image of 
cocaine as the relatively 
“safe" up-market drag. 


In the past, cocaine has been 

variously linked with chest 
pains, palpitations, irregular 
heartbeats, heart attacks and 
sodden death, but it was only 
earlier this year that research- . 
ers suspected a direct link. 

The Stanford team, led by 
Dr Henry Tazelaar, studied a 
group of 30 drag victims, 
mainly men, aged between 25 
and 74 who were regular 
cocaine users. Of the study 
group, 28 had suffered fetal 
heart damage and most were 
young, with an average age of 
34. They had taken cocaine in 
varying doses. 

“The heart damage we 
found is of a type that can 
trigger irregular heartbeats," 
Dr Tazelaar said. 


The damage appears as red 
streaks where hurt muscle 
has tightened and died. “Once 
that happens, the cells are 


“These dead patches inter- 
fere with the electrical pulses 
that keep the heart beating' 
smoothly. Irregular beating 
becomes inevitable and that 
can lead to sudden death.” 

The researchers believe that 
people who show no iD-effects 
from taking cocaine are slowly 
damaging their hearts. “We 
are particaforiy concerned 
about young cocaine users," 
Dr Tazelaar said. “Later la 
life when they begin to develop 
normal heart disease, the 
situation will be aggravated by 
tiie hidden but longstanding 


damage caused by cocaine." 

The strain imposed by train- 
ing and exercise could also 
trigger a heart attack. “I think 
our findings could provide 
insight into the deaths of fit 
young athletes taking co- 
caine," Dr Tazelaar said. 

The researchers are so con-

Tough limit sought on noise 


By Harvey Elliott, Air Correspondent 

Tough restrictions on air- older versions of Boeing 727s

Governraent to eliminate couraged by the success of 
older, noisier jets and place anti-noise legislation which 


strict limits oo night flying. 

The Department of Trans- 
port is expected to announce 
the measures eariy next year in 
an attempt to woo environ- 
mental groups before the gen- 
eral election. 

If noise abatement mea- 
sures are approved, airlines 
around toe world would be 
forced to invest heavily in a 
new generation of quieter 
aircraft. 

Mr Michael Spicer. Under 
Secretary of State for Trans- 
port, speaking to the Foreign 
Airlines Association in Lon- 
don yesterday, said: “We are 
currently reviewing several 
aspects of noise management, 
including night quotas and a 
monitoring of trade keeping. 

“As our airports become 
busier and busier we must be 
more and more mindful of the 
needs of people who live 
around them." 

Mr Spicer disclosed that he 
is studying ways of phasing 
out what are known as Chap- 
ter Two aircraft, including 


has led to a big fell in noise 
pollution around Heathrow 
Airport. 

But at the same time, 
British Midland Airways dis- 
closed yesterday that it would 
be pressing for noise restric- 
tions at the new stolport in 
London's docklands to be 
eased to allow for services by 
jet aircraft 

In announcing plans for a 
new business airline to fly 
from toe docklands to cities 
throughout Europe, Mr Mi- 
chael Bishop, chairman of toe 
airline, said he would be 
lobbying for noise limits to be 
eased to permit flights by 
British Aerospace (BAe) 146 
jets. 

The new airline, to be 
known as Eurocity Express, 
will initially operate Ca- 
nadian-built De Havflland 
Dash 7 four-engine propeller- 
driven aircraft Permission is 
being sought for services to 
Paris, Amsterdam, Brussels, 
Rotterdam, Guernsey, Jersey, 
Dusseldorf and Manchester. 


The airline's first Dash 7. 
with its distinctive logo of 
pinstripe suit and flying red 
tie. will be delivered next 
May. Up to five could be 
ordered, depending on li- 
cences granted to the airline 
when the short take-off and 
landing airport is opened next 
autumn. 


Plans for jet flights are 
bound to run into strong 
opposition from environ- 
mental and residents’ groups, 
who just foiled to kill off the 
stolport before it was built 
because of potential noise 
problems. 


Mr Bishop admitted that 
strong lobbying would be 
essential if the objections were 
to be overcome. But he said 
the noise difference between 
the Dasb 7 and the 146 was so 
small there was a strong case 
for relaxing the present rules. 

• A new centre for 
business aviation, costing 
million and creating up to 
2,000 jots, is to be built at 
Fhmborough, Hampshire, by 
a consortium led by the 
Carroll Group, McAipine Avi- 
ation and Plessey Airports.

Younger accepts Westland committee defence analysis 


The Westland a flair powerfully 
reinforced die wisdom of 
successive governments in gen- 
erally abiding by ibe rule of 
collective responsibility. Mr 
George Younger, Secretary of 
State for Defence, said when he 
opened the debate on Westland, 
the helicopter firm. 

He added: "That message, 
underlined by the unhappiness 
of two ministerial resignations, 
will long be rememb e red when 
so much else in our current 
political controversy has 
Sided". 

Mr Younger said that the Gov- 
ernment agreed with much of 
the analysis made by the Select 
Committee on Defence of the 
defence implications of the fu- 
ture of Westland, but there were 
points on which the Govern- 
ment could not go the whole 
way with the committee. 

The committee rightly 
pointed out that the helicopter 
had an established place in 
maritime and land-air warfare, 
and that its existing range of 
capabilities was gradually being 
extended. 

It had its vulnerabilities, how- 
ever. and was not yet able to 
replace an entire capability in 
the land-air battle. For example,

At the same time, he said, 
they were declaring toe entitle-

limit of 200 miles, subject to 
delimitation with Argentina. 

There had been a rapid in- 
crease in fishing in toe south- 
west Atlantic and the serious 
impact on fish stocks had 
aroused widespread concern. 
Accordingly a study was 
launched at toe Food and 
Agriculture Organization. 

From toe outset Britain took 
toe view that toe problem would 
best be solved on a collaborative 
basis. “In public", he went on, 
"and directly to the Argentine 
Government. I made clear our 
view that a solution without 
prejudice to our respective po- 
sitions on sovereignty could and 
should be found."

FOREIGN AFFAIRS 

Sir Geoffrey Howe came under 
attack for the “shamefully 
trivial** measures taken by the 
EEC against South Africa dur- 
ing Commons questions. 

The Foreign Secretary said 
that the 12 had agreed on 
September 16 a package of 
raeasares designed to send a 
strong signal to tbe Sooth 
African Government on the ar- 
gent need far fu n d am ental 
change. 

Mr Peter Hardy (Wentworth, 
Lab): Will be not take a firmer 
and more insistent position, not 
jpagf in regard to the effective 
exclusion of Namibia and cer- 
tain products from tbe sanctions 
arrangement? 

Does the present situation not 
suggest that tbe sanctions poli- 
cies pursued by Britain and 
Western Europe will appear to 
be merely a rhetorical exercise 
which, without strict monitoring, 
ran provide the worst possible 
consequences? 

Sir Geoffrey Howe: Tbe mea- 
sures agreed in September do 
not apply to Namibia because all 
but one of the 12 consider that it 
raises a seperafe problem which 
requires a different approach. 
Tbe measures were agreed after 
a great deal of discussion and 
they represent a considered and 
concerted package designed to 
receive tbe response intended. 
Mr Kenneth Eastham (Man- 
chester, Blackley, lab) said 
that, reflecting on Britain's dis- 
appointment about tbe reaction 
of her EEC partners to Syria, 


was it not understandable that 
toe EEC ministers were dis- 
appointed with tbe British 
Government's attitude on Strath 
Africa? Tbe overwhelming feel- 
ing of British people was opposi- 
tion to apartheid. 

Sir Geoffrey Howe: I am totally 
aware of toe overwhelming opin- 
ion of tbe people of Britain and 
tbe European Commnnity 
condemning apartheid and 
requiring it to be replaced as 
soon as possible. On that point 
there is no difference between ns

EEC felt that the the miss ion we 
undertook in July on Sooth 
Africa represented a very eff- 
ective presentation of (he case 
upon which toe people of Europe 
are agreed. 

Mr Gny Barnett (Greenwich. 
Lab): Does he not recognize that 
there is an increasingly serious 
situation developing in South 
Africa, a situation invoking 
increasing degrees of disorder? 
With the tragic death of Samora 
MacbeL does be not feel be 
should now respond to the call 
made recently by the Secretary' 
General of the Co mmo nwealth 
for an international brigade to 
defend the frunt-line states 
against intrusion from South 
Africa? Why does he not give a 
lead of that kind in the EEC? 
Sir Geoffrey Howe: It would not 
be sensible or fruitful to begin 
thinking In terms of mobilizing a 
brigade of that kind. 


But he is right to draw attention same view as Mr Beith on the 
to toe increasing gravity of the effectiveness of snch measures,

Cyprus Seven’ inquiry calls for tighter rein on recruiting and monitoring of off-duty activity 

Formidable 
problems of 


security in 
young unit 

■ In Jnly 1984, the Prime Minister asked the Security 
t-onunission to investigate any breaches of security at 
a commu n ications base in Cyprus following cham ps 
Official Secrets Act against eight members 

of 9 Signal Regiment. 

ibseq >ntly all those who stood trial at thie Central 
'-runmal Court were acquitted. The jury listened to the 
case for 107 days in dosed session, making it the long- 
™SMnostKpensije spy hearing in British history, 
f to Security Commission continued with its inquiry 
*nd its findings, extracts from which appear here, 
were presented to the House of Commons yesterday.

Disposal review on 
secret documents 


We were told that, in 1984, 
9 Signal Regiment were han- 
dling a very large number — 
running into tens of thou- 
sands — of classified docu- 
ments each day. 

The normal rules which 
apply in a UK-based Govern- 
ment department for record- 
ing and accounting would be 
impractical, and the strict 
application of them would 
quickly bring the whole opera- 
tion to a halt Special pro- 
visions are therefore necessary 
to ensure that the risk of any 
loss is minimised. 

These provisions consist of 
ensuring, first that only ma- 
terial which is strictly relevant 
to its work is passed to and 
from the unit; secondly, that 
only essential documents are 
retained; and thirdly, that 
documents which are not 
required are destroyed as 
quickly as posable. 

We therefore noted, with 
approval, that a thorough 
review of the distribution .and 
classification of sensitive sig- 
nal traffic was carried out in 
1984, designed to limit the ' 
distribution list to a strict 
"need to know” basis and to 
do everything possible to see 
that material was not over 
classified. 

This review resulted in a 
reduction of approximately 
one-third in the volume of 
material passing through the 
unit • 

At certain static commu- 
nications units tbe number of 
documents is being signifi- 
cantly reduced by the in- 
troduction of Automatic Data 
Processing (ADP) which. 


stores the information on 
tape. 

We were tod that, although 
the system in Cyprus will not 
easily lend itself to the use of 
ADP, studies are in hand to 
see to what extent such tech- 
niques can be introduced at 9 
Signal Regiment 

Most of the material which 
comes into 9 Signal Regiment 
is of value for a very limited 
time and is often destroyed 
within one day. 

Only a fraction needs to be 
retained and accounted for; 
but the rules must ensure that 
documents which need to be 
kept are properly recorded 
and stored, and that the vast 
amount which has to be 
destroyed is destroyed prop- 
erty in accordance with clearly 
written, and strictly observed, 
procedures. 

All waste material produced 
in the Technical Block is 
ultimately disposed of by 
burning. Some -of the veiy 
highly classified waste' is 
shredded before being incin- 
erated and this has .some 
advantages. 

For example, shredding ma- 
chines can oe installed close 
beside an operator, who can 
dispose of a document and 
record its destruction without 
having to pass it to a second 
person to whom he must then 
entrust the responsibility for 
correct disposal. 

For reasons such as this, the 
investigating teams made 
recommendations for addi- 
tional shredders to be pro- 
vided in certain areas.

employed on this type of work 
until be is reasonably mature, 
and certainly over the age of 
21. We have, however, re- 
ceived evidence from tbe Min- 
istry of Defence, and tbe 
Services that it would not be 
possible to implement such a 
policy. 

The work is difficult and 
.requires a high degree of 
concentration and slnH_ ft is 
not easy to attract those with 
the necessary qualifications 
and aptitude to join the Ser- 
vices and to undertake the 
necessary training. 

Those who are suitable for 
training almost invariably 
join in their late teens and sign 
on for short engagements of

Pretoria blamed for Machel’s 
death but not the plane crash 


From Michael Hornsby 
Mapnto 

Leaders of the six black- 
ruled frontline states in south- 
ern Africa yesterday Mamed 
the Pretoria Government for 
the death of President Machel 
of Mozambique but stopped 
short of accusing it of causing 
the plane crash in w h ich he 
died on October 19. 

Answering questions after 
the summit was over, Presi- 
dent Kaunda of Zambia, the 
group's current chairman, 
said, however, that “a number 
of our governments hold the 
South African government di- 
rectly responsible for this 
tragedy until they prove the 
contrary”. 

President Kaunda also dis- 
missed as “nothing new” 
Tuesday’s “declaration of 
war" on Zimbabwe by the 
Rename insurgents in 
Mozambique. “The so-called 
declaration of war was really a 
question iff ’his master's

Mubarak silences opponents 
with admission of torture 


Even the super-critical 
Egyptian opposition parties 
were amazed when President 
Mubarak's Government 
admitted that the security 
authorities had been using 
torture against political 
detainees. 

Mr Mubarak has claimed 
that he “truly believes in 
democracy", yet the 
announcement by the Egyp- 
tian prosecutor general that 
criminal proceedings would 
commence against 41 police- 
men for torturing imprisoned 
Islamic fundamentalists was 
unprecedented. 

The small opposition 
groups in Egypt, who regularly 
complain- that elections are 
rigged and that Mr Mubarak 
has no interest in real demoo 
racy, were for once reduced to 
silence. Their low circulation 
newspapers had for months 
been alleging that such torture 
was taking place, but when Mr 
Mohamed Abdul Aziz el- 
Guindy. the State Prosecutor, 
made his announcement, the 
newspaper of the New Wafd 
Party praised ■ him for bis 
“very bold” act, adding only 
that it hoped to see further 
prosecutions. 

When the revelations of 
torture were first made by the 
papers. Mr Fouad Scrag d- 
Din, the leader of the New 
Wafd Party, demanded the 
immediate dismissal of Gen- 
eral Zaki Badr, the Interior 
Minister appointed by Mr 
Mubarak after the security 
police riots last February. _ 
Amid the growing claims 
that fundamentalist detainees 
have been subjected to sexual 
abuse, electric shocks and 
severe beatings. General Badr 
is fas: becoming as much a 
hate figure as was his dis- 
missed predecessor. General 
Ahmed Rushdy. But opposi- 
tion ■ concern for the fun- 
damentalists probably has as 
much to do with its own lack 
of political support as it does 
with human rights. 

Swiss bicycle 
troops want 
new mounts 

Geneva — Neutral Switzer- 
land. methodically moderniz- 
ing its conventional arm- 
aments in this thermonuclear 
age. is seeking new mounts for 
its bicycle battalions (Alan 
McGregor writes). 

The current bicycle dates 
from 1905. The Defence Min- 
istry says manufacturing spa- 
ns for it has become 
uneconomic and an identical 
new one now costs £600. 


From Robert Fisk, Cairo 

Yet they consistently claim 
that their support will never 
be reflected at the polls be- 
cause their leaders' are con- 
vinced that elections are 
rigged by the Government. On 
October i, the five opposition 
parties refused to put up 
candidates for elections to the 
Egyptian upper house, the 
Majlis el-Shura, thus ensuring 
President Mubarak’s New 
Democratic Party (NDP) a 
ludicrous 98 per cent of the 
votes. The figure — which was 
reminiscent of the results of 
the fraudulent elections held 
under President Nasser — thus 
destroyed the credibility of the 
NDFs victory. 

According to Mr Ehwi 
Hafez, a member of the 
Wafd's High Council, the 
Majlis el-Shura has in any case- 
no representative function, 
being “a family council as the 
late President Sadat intended 
it to be ... a council for his 
family to collect people loyal 
to him and give them salaries 
and privileges and enable 
them to enhance their per- 
sonal interests.” 

Yet the conviction that the 
polls are rigged is a very real 
one. Mr Mustafa Murad, the 
leader of the Liberal Party — 
which has no seats in the 
parliamentary assembly — in- 
sists there can be no proper 



General Badn demands for 
his dismissal. 


elections until independent , 
judges replace police officials ! 
at toe 22,000 ballot stations 
throughout Egypt and until 
ballot papers are afloted by 
name rather than handed oat 
anonymously to voters. 

“We have got two out of 21 
fundamentalist groups to give 
their support to us,” he says. 
“But making them understand 
what we are trying to do can be 
difficult We had a meeting at 
our party office in Chnbra the 
other day and one of the 
fundamentalists shouted: ‘We 
must kill mubaraL’ 

“I said to him: ‘You are 
mad. If you kin Mubarak, 
someone else will come along 
and they will hang you and 
that will be toe end. You 
cannot have everything Is- 
lamic — there are many Chris- 
tian people in Egypt who 
won't have that and many 
liberal people who don’t want 
it. You must work within toe 
democratic system. Don’t try 
to overthrow the 
Government.’ But for this 
persuasion to work, Mubarak 
has to make the elections 
fair." 

The NDP did try to amelio- 
rate toe results of toe recent 
election by offering its oppo- 
nents some of toe 35 seals 
distributed by appointment 
rather than election, but only 
Mr Ahmed Sabahi. toe leader 
of the Ununa Party which is 
fundamentalist orientated, 
has accepted. 

For toe present, therefore, 
the five orthodox opposition 
groups in Egypt remain a 
noisy though comparatively 
powerless political force. 
Their existence has certainly 
helped to break down the 
walls of fear which President 
Nasser erected around Egypt’s 
political life. But the suspicion 
remains that they provide 
merely a valve for the ex- 
pression of disconlenf against 
the monolithic party appa- 
ratus run by the president. 


Americans considering 
radio swap with Russia 

From Mohsan AH, Washington 


US and Soviet officials have 
held talks ahned at negotiating 
an unusual exchange of radio 
programmes. 

Mr Charles Wick, director 
of toe United States Informa- 
tion Agency (USIA) said that 
the tentative idea was to 
broadcast Voice of America 
programmes on Soviet domes- 
tic stations. In exchange for 
toe right to cany Moscow 
radio programmes on stations 


inAmeriea. 

Mr Wick met Mr Alek- 
sandr Yakovlev, the Soviet 
Communist Party secretary in 
Charge of propaganda, in 
Reykjavik during toe s ummi t 

In an interview with The 
New York Tates, Mr Wick 
said that as a result of these 
talks be was finding oat 
whether an American radio 
network was willing to allocate 
time to Moscow radio 


already done,” he said. 

Zimbabwe has had troops 
deployed here for several 
years in support of Mozam- 
bique government forces. 
Their numbers are put at 
anywhere between 6,000 and 
12,000 men. President 
Kaunda's jibe about “his 
master’s voice” reflects toe 
belief of Mack-ruled states in 
the region that Renamo is 
supported by, and acts as a 
proxy for, South Africa. 

It was toe first meeting of 
toe frontline states - Angola, 
Botswana, Mozambique, Tan- 
zania, Zam bia and Zimbab we 

— since President Macbd’s 
death. Their leaders were in 
Maputo for his state funeral 
on Tuesday and prolonged 
their stay by one extra day. 

In their formal commu- 
nique toe leaders declared that 
President Machel “fell victim 
to apartheid, which carries out 
acts of aggression and de- 
stabilization and murders of 
innocent ritfeens in this 
region". 

- President Kaunda later 


went further, claiming that 
“there is sufficient circum- 
stantial evidence available for 
us to hold South Africa di- 
rectly responsible ... We are 
aware that the plane was being 
monitored by South African 
radar. We also know that 
electronically these days it is 
possible to tamper with any 
machine like an aircraft We 
are not impressed by toe 
crocodile tears of toe two 
Bothas. Men who have no 
respect for their fellow human 
beings on grounds of colour 
cannot be expected to 
mourn ” 

It was possibly significant 
that President Kaunda, who 
said that he and other 
frontline leaders had been 
fully briefed about the crash 
by toe Mozambicans, made 
no reference to suggestions 
aired- earlier, particularly by 
toe press in Zimbabwe, that 
President Machel's plane 
might have been shot down. 

• JOHANNESBURG: A So- 
viet airman who survived the 


Machel plane crash 10 days 
ago was flown bock to Maputo 
yesterday after being dis- 
charged from a South African 
military hospital in Pretoria 
(Ray Kennedy writes). 

But Mr R F(Pik) Botha, toe 
South African Foreign Min- 
ister, said the Mozambique 
government bad been told he 
may be required to return to 
South Africa to give evidence 
before a judicial inquiry into 
toe cause of the disaster. 

Mr Botha's statement 
identified Mr Vladimir Nov- 
oselovas toe flight engineer on 
board President Machel's 
Soviet-built Tupolev-134 jet 
aircraft. 

There has been confusion so 
far about whether he was the 
pilot of the aircraft but Mr 
Botoa's statement appears to 
make it clear that toe pilot did 
not survive. 

There is a growing im- 
patience in Pretoria over 
claims that South Africa was 
to blame for the crash.

Israelis 
put clamp 
on arms 
dealers 

From Ian Murray 
Jerusalem 

New regulations aimed at 
restricting the operations of 
Israel's 800 or so private, bat 
authorized, arms dealers 
around the world have just 
been approved in the Knesset. 

They were drawn up after a 
series of scandals, largely 
unearthed in toe United 
States, including an alleged 
multi-millkHMfoliar plot by a 
consortium led by a retired 
Israeli brigadier to smuggle a 
huge arms shipment to Inm. 

Until now arms dealers have 
been able to operate legiti- 
mately once they obtained a 
letter of accreditation from the 
Ministry of Defence. 

In future no sale can even 
start without an individual 
permit being issued showing 
the names of the dealer, toe 
potential pnrehaser and any 
intermediaries, along with the 
type and quantity of weapons 
involved. Before the final con- 
tract is signed a dealer will 
requires second permit setting , 
out toe terms of toe sale, , 

including details of bow pay- 
ment is to be made. 1 

Explaining toe new regula- 
tions to toe Foreign Affairs 
and Defence Committee of toe 1 
Knesset, Mr Yitzhak Rabin, | 
toe Defence Minister, said 
they would make it possible to 
keep a central record of all 
deals under negotiation or 
concluded. 

All existing 800 or so letters 
of accredits non from toe Min-

“What the arms dealers 
were carrying until now were 
blank cheques, in a manner of 
speaking, and we had no

Mr Rabin said. 

It is likely that toe Knesset

Afghan 
defector 
says Army 
weakening 

Islamabad (Reuter) - A 
senior Afghan Army officer 
said yesterday that he had 
defected to toe ami-govern- 
ment Muslim rebels two 
weeks ago. and painted a grim 
picture of toe deteriorating 
military situation inside the 
country. t 

Colonel Mir HashmatulUto, 
aged 43. deputy commander 
of a division stationed be- 
tween Kabul and toe border 
with Pakistan, said here that 
he had become a convinced 
anti-communist since toe 
Soviet military intervention 
in 1979. 

Colonel HashmaiuUah, who 
reached Pakistan with his wife 
and three children a few days 
ago, said he had joined toe 
radical Muslim Hczb-e-Islami 
group, one of toe main guer- 
rilla organizations fighting the 
Soviet-backed government in 
Kabul. 

. Referring to toe state of toe 
Afghan Army, he said the men 
did not want to fight the 
rebels, relations with the 
Soviet forces in the country 
were poor and the military 
situation was deteriorating. 

His defection 13 days ago 
was followed a week later by 
that of an Afghan Air Force 
pilOL who flew his Soviet-built 
MiG 21 jet fighter across the 
border to Pakistan. 

A Pakistani Foreign Min- 
istry spokesman said the plane 
would be kept here until the 
end of the “civil war” in 
Afghanistan, following stan- 
dard international practice. 

The spokesman said the 
pilot, identified by Afghan 
exiles as Lieutenant Muham- 
mad Daud. would be given 
political asylum. 

• Official killed: Mr 
Mohammad Ali Somim, a 
senior Afghan Communist 
Party leader, was buried on 
Tuesday at a large state fu- 
neral attended by top leaders 
toe day after he was killed by a 
land mine planted by guerril- 
las. the Afghan Government 
announced (AP reports). 


PLO dispute feared 


An attempt to secure ob- 
server status for toe Palestine 
Liberation Oiganization has 
raised toe prospect of further 
political disputes at toe Inter- 
national Red Cross conference 
(Alan McGregor writes). 

A letter requesting such 
recognition from a PLO repre- 
sentative accompanying toe 
Palestine Red Crescent delega- 




tion has been delivered here. 
The delegation is headed by 
Dr Fatoi Arafat, brother of the 
PLO presidenL 

As there is no precedent for 
observer status being granted 
to any such organization the 
conference bureau is not ex- 
pected to pass toe application 
to toe conference.

Gold bullion, rare paintings, computers 
and fresh food were just some of the items seen 
boarding our planes. 

In all, British Airways carried 232,000 tonnes 
of freight and 41,000 tonnes of air mail last year 
No wonder we were voted Cargo Airline 
of the Year for the third year running by the 
readers of Air Cargo News International. 


And if that wasn’t enough, our competitors 
also contributed to a further £186 million for 
aircraft maintenance and other airline services. 

These included flight crew training and the 
development and provision of computer software 
and telecommunications. 

So it seems it’s not only our passengers who 
make us the world’s favourite airline. 


Last year we flew nearly 20 million people 
to destinations all around the world. 

But none of them contributed to over 
£450 million of our revenue. Our successful 
Cargo division made sales of £268 million alone. 

Quite a few cats, fish and birds travelled 
with British Airways Cargo. (The most popular 
mode of transport since the Ark.)

Beirut TV 
shows film 
of baby 
for hostage 


From Joan Carlos Gamocio 
Beirut 


If Islamic Jihad were in a 
good mood, Mr Terry Ander- 
son. the American journalist 
held hostage in Lebanon, 
probably had a chance Iasi 
night to watch a one-minmc 
videotape of the baby daugh- 
ter he has never seen. 

Lebanese television broad- 
cast the film, a touching 
birthday greeting, after news- 
papers gave advance notice. 

Mr Anderson, the chief 
Middle East correspondent of 
the Associated Press, was 39 
on Monday. The film showed 
16-month-old Sulome The- 
resa Anderson in a white dress 
hugging and kissing her 
father's smiling portrait while 
her mother read a message: 
“Terry darling, happy birth- 
day, my love. 1 miss you very 
much. Our daughter misses 
you too. She knows you. she 
calls ‘Papa-Dada' all the lime 
and showers your picture with 
kisses~She is a good gitl and a 
great comfort with you awa. 
especially since she is so much 
like you. We want you with us. 
darling. God willing it will not 
be long." 

Mr Anderson was abducted 
in Beirut on March 16. 1985. 
• Camps fighting: More 
Sunni Muslim militiamen 
were deployed yesterday to 
halt Palestinian-Shia fighting 
at refugee camps in south 
Lebanon (Reuter reports). 


Zimbabwe 

white 

‘vigilantes’ 

arrested 


From Michael Hartnack 
Harare 


Zimbabwe security police 
have detained four whites who 
are alleged to have formed a 
vigilante group and assaulted 
blacks after university stu- 
dents and Zaira (PF) youth- 
wing activists beat up white 
pedestrians and motorists in 
last Tuesday's riot here. 

The students reacted to 
reports that South Africa was 
responsible for the death of 
Mozambique's President 

Samora Machel by attacking 
South African and Malawian 
airline and diplomatic offices, 
and the United States 
Embassy-American diplomats 
have complained that police 
failed to intervene. 

About 50 white passers-by 
were beaten up, including re- 
porters and cameramen. 

University students said 
four of tbeir number were 
abducted and severely as- 


saulted by a group of nine 
mantes" 


white “vigilantes" while mak- 
ing their way back to the 
campus. 

Police detained 98 students 
under the state of emergency 
daring the city centre violence, 
but later freeed them “pending 
further inquiries" so they 
could do their ejiamhiations. 

A police spokesman said the 
names of the four whites being 
detained would not be dis- 
closed while they were “help- 
ing police with inquiries".

Guessing what the 
Old Man would do 

From Ian Murray, Jerusalem 


There is a popular game 
among Israeli politicians and 
commentators called “What 
would the old man do?” It is a 
leadership game, in which the 
winner is the one who guesses 
what David Ben Gurioa, the 
grand old man of Israel, would 
have thought or said about a 
current problem. 

This is the year of Ben 
Gurioii's centenary and the 
game is now at its most 
fashionable. 

At a special opening session 
of the Knesset on Monday, Mr 
Shtomo HfileL, the Speaker, 
argued that die Old Man 
today would be pressing hard 
for Israel to develop its agri- 
cultural system. 

Ben Gnrioa, he argued, was 
a pragmatic idealist who had 
been prepared to defy military, 
political and economic experts 
to remain true to Zionist 
hopes. For him those hopes 
lay in work, security, the 
conquest of the Negev Desert 
and in encouraging 
immig ration. 

Other players of foe game 
include Mr Shimon Peres, 


i Ben Gnrion was 
prepared to defy 
experts to remain 
true to Zionism 9 

who has personally chosen to 
pursue that idea of taming the 
Negev. Since stepping down as 
Prime Minister last week, he 
has taken over die chairman- 
ship of a special new commit- 
tee which is to concentrate on 
developing the desert 

Today, the dream Ben 
Gnrion had of settling the 
desert and turning it into a 
thriv ing area of the Jewish 
qtatp he founded is sdll a 
dream. For some of its early 
settlers it has become a 
nightmare. 

According to Mr Aharon 

Vadim, secretary of the United 

Kibbutz Movement: "The 
Negev has become a periph- 
eral area. The number of 
people leaving exceeds those 
settling there* The problem is 
not one of money, bat one of 
risiau." 

According to the chairman 
of the Jewish National Front, 
Mr Mosbe Rivlin, every 
Negev town is losing popula- 
tion, factories and shops are 
closing, unemployment is ris- 
ing and thousands of apart- 
ments are standing empty. 

The Negev Assembly, which 
represents the area's settle- 
ments, threatened to boycott 
the Ben Gnrion centenary 
celebrations until Mr Peres 
gave a promise that he would 
personally ensured that die 
desert was high on the 
Government's list of priorities. 

The special Negev min- 
isterial committee has already 


been bombarded with com- 
plaints that the government 
has foiled to move industry 
south to oeate the jobs needed 
to realize Ben Gnrion's dream. 
Mr Peres is promising now to 
bnild a new settlement in the 
desert, K&r David, within the 
next two years. Fifteen volun- 
teer settler families are ready 
to move in, bnt the money will 
have to. come from overseas. 

Money amid soon come if 
the desert realizes its potential 
as the power plant for the 
nation. Mr Mosbe Shahal, die 
Energy Minister, has jnst 
announced a $26 million (£18 
million) plan to ba3d a five- 
megawatt power station in die 
desert, burning the oD shale 
found there to produce elec- 
tricity for the national grid. 

Ministry officials say that 
there are some 10 bfllioa tons 
of oO shale in the Negev, 
gwnngk to supply the country 
with electricity for the next 50 
years. 

Another $500,000 is to be 
spent prospecting for uranium 
and other ores, which could be 
pleatifnLA $1 million experi- 
mental wind turbine centre to 
test the energy potential of the 
hot desert winds is to go np. A 
$4 milli on solar energy re- 
search centre is also plumed. 

Scientific advance of this 
sort would certainly please 
Ben Gnrion, who founded 
University of the Desert 
centred on his home there at 
Sde Bokre. Ben Gnrion and 
his wife, Paula, are buried 
there, in a grave which looks 
out across the banes WHder- 
ness of Zin, which he dreamt 
of taming. 

For Mr Yitzhak Shamir, die 
new Prime Minister, the an- 
swer to the leadership game is 
to encourage and fight for the 
immigration of Jews from all 
over the world and then to 
settle them on the land. 

Economic growth, he told 
the Knesset in his inaagaral 
address last week, was essen- 
tial to the fatfibneat of the 
Zionist goals “above afi, Ali- 
yah ( immigration to Israel)*~ 

In his idea of a Ben Gnrioo- 
inspired Zionist economy he 
focused on “the supreme value 
of settlement throughout the 
land of IsraeL We will not 
discriminate between one part 
of the country and another 
just as there is me people of 
Israel, there is one land of 
IsraeL" 

His idea of settlement in- 
cfndes not only die Negev bnt 
the occupied territories. Mr 
Peres, only too aware of the 
problems this poses for the 
peace process, dreams of 
diverting settlement into the 
empty Negev, and be is doing 
afi be can to nse tbe dream of 
the Old Man to help him. 

The trouble with die game is 
that there is no way of 

knowing tbe comet answer. 

Ben Gnrion left behind him 
one of the most minutely 

detailed records of any great 
man's life. His diary, written 
in four copies, documents 
everything he did- and wrote 
from 1915 to his death in 1973. 
He even took notes of 
conversations he was having, a 
habit people found very dis- 
concerting as they sat with 
him. 

The result is that it is 
possible to find contradictory 
opinions and ideas sprinkled 
throughout his writing. There 

is comfort and criticism for alL 
His legacy, acquired by dint 
of stubborn single-minded- 
ness, is the very existence of 
tbe state of IsraeL Bnt leaders 
who look to him for guidance 
about how to nm the state of 
Israel today find contradictory 
Mfraikrir inspiration more of- 
ten than practical advice.

Germans back Britain on terrorism 


Bonn seeks Syrian answer to UK dossier 


The West German Ambas- 
sador in Damascus is to 
Present the Syrian goveru- 
nient with British evidence of 
its involvement in terrorism 
and ask for an explanation, a 

SSPi? 1 Ministry spokesman 
said here yesterday. 

Herr Jurgen Chrobog said 
Bonn would receive no visits 
gyi>ynan government mem- 
bers until further notice and 
me activities of the Syrian 
embassy here would be exam- 
ined. The Syrian Arab Air- 
lines, which ai present makes 
tour flights a week to West 
Germany, would also be told 
to reduce its staff here. 

Meanwhile, the West Ger- 
government yesterday 
approved new anti-terrorism 
measures, inclu ding a “super- 
grass" law, as security men 
stepped up their hunt for 
terrorists who attacked a se- 
nior civ LI servant in West 
Berlin on Tuesday. 

^ The extreme left-wing 
“Revolutionary Cells" terror- 
ist group, which is dose to the 
notorious Red Array Faction, 
later claimed responsibility 
for the attack. Earlier on 
Tuesday, the group Had also 
said ft was behind a bomb 
attack on the headquarters of 
the Lufthansa airline in Co- 
logne which caused damage 
but hurt no one. 

The question of a replace* 
ment for Dr Heribert Wockel, 
the Ambassador, who has 
been in Damascus since 
September, 1981 , and is due to 


From John England, Bnnn 


.return to Bonn soon on the 
expiry of his tour of duty, 
would depend upon the out- 
come of the trial in West 
Berlin cf Ahmed Hasi, a 
brother of Nezar Hindawi, 
Herr Chrobog added. 

Mr Hasi is to go on trial on 
November 17 charged with a 
bomb attack on tbe German- 
Arab Society in West Berlin 
on March 28 this year in 
which nine people were in- 
jured. He is also suspected of 
involvement in the bombing 
of the La Belle disco in West 
Beilin on April 6 which killed 
- three people and injured more 
than 200 others. 

Mr Hasi has told police that 
he obtained the explosives for 
the attack on the German- 
Arab Society from the Syrian 
Embassy in East Berlin. He 
also said that Hindawi had 
master-minded, that bombing 
and arranged for a Syrian 
explosives expert to travel to 
West Berlin to repair a bomb 
that had foiled twice to 
explode. 

Herr Hans-Dietrich Gen- 
scher, the West German For- 
eign Minister, said on 
Tuesday that Bonn supported 
all of Britain's calls for eff- 
ective EEC measures in the 
fight against international 
terrorism. 

In Tuesday's Berlin attack, 
Herr Haraid Holienberg, aged 
54, tbe chief of tbe Aliens 
Office, was shot in the legs as 
he left bis home to go to work. 
His attackers, a young man 


aged about 20 and a woman, 
fled the scene on bicydes and 
were then seen getting into an 
estate car driven by another 

(nan. 

A letter from the terrorists 
said they had shot Herr 
Holienberg because he was a 
"man-hunter and desk 
c riminal " who was respon- 
sible for the deaths of six 
Third World asylum-seekers 
in a fire in a Berlin prison 


where they were awaiting 
deportation. 

Dr Kurt Rebmann, tbe 
Federal Public Prosecutor, 
yesterday took over the in- 
vestigation into the attack as 
Federal Criminal Bureau anti- 
terrorist specialists joined the 
hunt for the terrorists. Dr 
Rebmann was also present at 
the Bonn Cabinet meeting 
which approved a package of 
new and tougher measures to 


step up the fight against 
terrorism. 

The measures indude a 
controversial Bill which will 
allow terrorists to turn state 
evidence against their com- 
rades in return for freedom or 
mild sentences. The 
“supergrass" law will be 
unique in German legal his- 
tory, and the opposition Social 
Democrats and Greens are 
against it 


Mrs Kathrine Young, wife of 
the Counsellor at the British 
Embassy in Damascus, Mr 
Rob Young, and their daugh- 
ter, Juliette, finishing their 
packing. 

Tension has been mounting 
because of a Syrian press 
campaign accusing Britain of 
preparing aggression against 
the Syrian capitaL British 
Embassy staff are due to 
leave tomorrow.

Police prepare 
to storm Seoul 
campus held by 
1,000 students 


Seoul (Reuter ) — South 
Korean riot police massed in 
the grounds of a Seoul univer- 
sity last night, preparing to 
storm campus buildings and 
arrest nearly 1,000 radical 
students holed up inside. 

The students, who occupied 
the library and four other 
buildings at Konkuk Univer- 
sity on Tuesday night after 
police broke up a major anti- 
government rally, splashed 
petrol around the buildings 
and threatened to bum them 
down if police moved against 
them. 

Police said state prosecutors 
ordered them on to the cam- 
pus to detain all the protesters. 
A police spokesman said for- 
mal charges would be brought 
against all those who led the 
occupation and Tuesday's

Students told reporters they 
would end their sit-in if the 
police withdrew from the cam- 
pus and guaranteed their "sale 
return home". But police. re- 
fused to meet the protesters' 
demand and barred entTy of 
food and drinks to them. 

Some protesters lit bonfires 
on the roof of a building as 
temperatures dropped to be- 
low zero last night. 

Government officials said 
many of the protesters might 
be charged with breaking the 
tough national security law. 
which bans all pro-North Ko- 
rean activities and carries a 
maximum penalty of death. 


The radicals shouted slo- 
gans against the government 
of President Chun Doo Hwan 
and called for the withdrawal 
of 40,000 American troops 
stationed in South Korea. 

They also accused the gov- 
ernment of fabricating pro- 
communist charges against 
students

noon yesterday. 1 15 students 
left the library and surren- 
dered to police, saying they 
were caught up in the occupa- 
tion against their will 

About 2.000 students from 
26 universities and colleges 
attended yesterday's rally. 
They burned effigies of Presi- 
dent Chun, President Reagan 
and of the Japanese Prime 
Minister, Mr Yashuhiro 
Nakasone, and shouted 
'‘Down with military 
dictatorship" and "Out with 
US and Japanese imperial- 
ism." witnesses said. 

The government is waging a 
major crackdown on students, 
workers and other activists it 
says are echoing communist 
propaganda. 

Earlier this month an 
opposition MP was arrested 
for a speech in the National 
Assembly in which he said the 
country's main policy should 
be reunification with the north 
rather than anti-communism.

In spite of appeals from the 
exiled leadership to boycott 
the elections, a Western dip-

yesterday that President al-

position substantially and a 
high turnout was expected. 

Reports received in Aden 
said that some of the 660,000

said the elections in them-

him fo jail in the Indian city 
where 2,000 people died.

agreed to hear his plea dial he 
be allowed to remain in Intha, 
that an order restraining him 
to Bbopal be lifted anil that 
other charges be dropped. The 
hearing is scheduled tor today. 

“I want to stay in India, to 
get all the diarges cleared and 
to continue to be allowed to

said. 

At the tune of his detention, 
police; while not commenting 
officially, told local r epor te rs

THE TIMES THURSDAY OCTOBER 30 198 


Reagan’s rallying call 
fights off Democratic 
advances in close vote 


Whales follow leader to the end 


From Christopher Thomas, Washington 


The fight for control of the 
Senate, the greatest prize of 
the mid-term elections next 
Tuesday, has become tamal- 
isingiy dose as opinion polls 
'point to steady advances by 
the Democrats in some critical 
'races around the country. 

Some polls point to the 
‘.possibility that the 100-mem- 
ber Senate — each state has 
two senators — could be 
divided equally between 
Democrats and Republicans. 
That would leave Vice-Presi- 
dent George Bush with the tie- 
breaking vote. 

At present, the Republicans 
have a S3 to 47 majority. If the 
Senate fell to the Democrats it 
would be a disaster for Mr 
Reagan's policies in his final 
two years. The party in control 
of the chamber controls which 
Bills gel promoted and heads 
the committees. The House of 
Representatives is already sol- 
idly Democrat and a totally 
hostile Chpitol Hill is a 
Republican nightmare. 

President Reagan is cam- 
paigning in marginal states 


until election day. He is 
undoubtedly the Republicans' 
single greatest asset, im- 
mensely popular wherever he 
goes, guaranteeing enormous 
free publicity for the can- 
didates who stand with him 
on the platform. 

in many states, computers 
dial voters who then listen to 
the President's recorded 
voice. 

A senior Republican strat- 
egist said: “Either the Presi- 
dent is going to do it for us or 
we are not going to do iL He is 
our last best hope of keeping 
control of the Senate.” 

In his speeches Mr Reagan 
is steering away from the 
economy, which has proved to 
be the Democrats' most eff- 
ective campaign issue, and is 
concentrating on foreign pol- 
icy. Grenada, Libya and Ice- 
land all add to his popularity. 

He uses the same speech 
everywhere. “Things really 
have changed around the 
world." he says. “America 
used to wear a ’Kick me’ sign 


around its neck. Well, we 
threw that sign away. Now it 
reads: ‘Don’t tread on me’. 
Today every mckle-and-dime 
dictator around the world 
knows that if he tangles with 
the United States of America, 
he will have to pay a price:" 

The closest Senate races are 
in Alabama, Colorado, Idaho, 
North Carolina, South Dakota 
and Washington state. Of the 
34 Senate seals being con- 
tested, 22 are held by 
Republicans. 

With the absence of any real 
national issue, campaigning 
has become intensely person- 
alised and has produced some 
bizarre excesses. All over the 
country, for example, tele- 
vision viewers are being 
treated to the sight of can- 
didates emerging from the 
toilet holding forth a sample 
bottle of urine to be submitted 
for drug testing. Some can- 
didates have refused to do it, 
saying it is demeaning, only to 
be lambasted on TV advertise- 
ments by their opponents. 


Hart the loner goes home 


From Michael Binyon 
Denver 

Mr Gary Hart is no longer a 
Colorado senator, bat be was 
back here campaigning this 
week for the Democratic con- 
tender for his seat. 

It was a gesture of solidarity 
from the man who represented 
the Rocky Mountain state in 
Washington for 12 years. 

But few expect to see him 
around in the future; his own 
presidential ambitions, all bat 
officially announced, will take 
him all over the country, as 
they did in 1984. 

It was that last campaign 
which really cost Mr Hart his 
Senate job. For though Colo- 
radans were (Hoad while he led 
the opposition to Walter Mon- 
dale in the Democratic pri- 
maries, the inevitable mur- 
murings began as his chal- 
lenge faltered and collapsed. 

He put his ambitious above 
his state, critics said, missing 
Senate votes and neglecting 
his home state. 

Many resented Colorado 
bring used as a launching pad 
to the White House. And Mr 
Hart realized he had to choose 
this year between re-election 
or resignation to pursue his 
presidential dream. 

Inevitably he will be judged 
as a presidential candidate on 
his Senate record. And while 
at least a third of Colorado 
remains sharply opposed to 
Mr Hart, many would concede 
he was a good, if unusual, 
senator. 

’ He was not a great leg- 
islator. Nor did he excel in 
pork-barrel politics, wheeling 
and dealing to steer govern- 
ment contracts to his home 
state. 

' Detached and somewhat 
austere he is not remembered 



US MID-TERM 
ELECTIONS 


for the typical senator’s back- 
slapping and baby-kissing or 
for a bluff man-of-the-people 
approach. 

Instead supporters here 
speak of intellectual integrity, 
of commitment to liberal sodal 
principles, of original thinking 
and independent views. 

Such qualities made him 
respected rather than revered, 
drew praise from the sophis- 
ticated but no mass following. 

Mr Hart's shadow does not 
loom large over Colorado in 
the way that big Senate fixers 
have dominated their home 
states. 

But neither is his strong 
support for the environment, 
for vital water projects, for 
ethnic minorities and en- 
trepreneurs, forgotten in a 
state that still has something 
of the frontier spirit 

In Colorado enterprise 
counts for more than race, 
class or unions, belief in 



Mr Hart Respected rather 
than revered 


“progress" is still a powerful 
motivator and rugged individ- 
ualism is common to the 
sportsmen of the sparse moun- 
tains, the immigrants to boom- 
ing Denver ami the gleaming 
space industries of Colorado 
Springs. 

Mr Hart is typical of Colo- 
rado in having tittle track with 
nwrhim* potitUS OT party 
patronage, so strong in the 
older East What seemed fresh 
and new in 1984 was in fact 
typical of ranch in the politics 
of the West 

Here the man means more 
than the party and voters 
happily ignore liberal or 
conservative labels if they 
detect leadership. 

Colorado and other western 
states generally vote Repub- 
lican in national elections, yet 
have recently produced some 
of the more innovative and 
radical Democratic governors 
— in Arizona, in Colorado!, 
even in Mormon-dominated 
Utah. 

Less typical is Mr Hart's 
aloofness. He is a man of the 
mountain log cabin, of soti- 
tnde, books mid ideas. He had 
few dose colleagues in the 
Senate, played little role in the 
Washington power lobbies. It 
is no cranridence that be 
receives tittle support from the 
myriad of special political 
action committees, and has 
still not paid off some $2^1 
million (£1.7 million) in cam- 
paign debts from 1984. 

Inevitably, Mr Hart is now 
seen as a front-runner in the 
1988 race — the only man 
already to have stumped the 
country. 

On him, therefore, rests the 
onus to set the pace and 
mainta in the momentnin. And 
here the loner may find the 
going tough.

Scientists and onlookers with some of the 
248 pilot whales which stranded them- 
selves on a beach on the south-western 
coast of Iceland at the weekend. 

The mass suicide, one of the largest

already attracting international attention. 
Scientists have been trying for years to 
find an explanation for the phenomenon 
of stranding (Tony Samstag writes). 


Ten-year 
sentence 
for Briton 

Abu Dhabi (Reuter) — A 
British woman resident of 
Abu Dhabi has been sen- 
tenced to 10 years in jail for 
possessing and selling cocaine. 

Policed said they arrested 
Barbara Edwards, aged 37, a 
sales representative, on July 6 
for selling the drag in Abu 
Dhabi hotels. 

Edwards was alleged to have 
admitted buying the drugs in 
Amsterdam and smuggling 
them into the United Arab 
Emirates. 

She will be deported after 
serving her sentence. 

Director jailed 

Singapore (Reuter) — Peter 
Tham. a former director of the 
collapsed Singapore company 
Pan-Electric- Industries, has 
been sentenced to eight years 
in prison for forging share 
certificates. 

Ye honoured 

Peking (Reuter) - More 
than 5,000 people, including 
most of China's leadership

for Marshal Ye Jianying, a

Dam battle 

Riano, Spain (Reuter) - 
Villagers opposing the flood- 
ing of their homes by a new 
dam fought a 16-hour battle 
with paramilitary civil guards, 
injuring seven of them. 


Among toe favoured theories are the 
effects of parasites or geographical disrup- 
tions of magnetic fields, either of which 
might disorientate toe animals. 

Pilot whales, ironically, are routinely 
victims of the notorious Icelandic ritual 
slaughter known as the grind, which 
exploits the tendency of the pod to foQow 
a leader (or pilot). In the grind the leader 
is diverted into shallow waters; the pod 




follows and ati are then hacked to death 
with ceremonial knives and the meat 
distributed according to ancient 
formulae. 

It is thought that this particular group 
may have been stranded because the 
leader, for whatever reason, became 
confused and the rest of the pod followed 
instinctively to their doom.

downed loos — - 

began a sit-down sxnke at toe 
South African plant of Gen- 
eral Motors, the American 
motor giant which has an- 
nouncedthal it is handing 
over to local management 

The workers are demanding 
a say in how the co mp a n y is to 
be restructured. _ ... . 

The strike at General 
Motors' Port Elizabeth plant 
represents the first big protest 
fry workers at disinvestment 
from South Africa by leading 
American compa ni e s . IBMj 
Coca-Cola, Honeywell and 
Warner Corporation are 
among those which have an- 
nounced ptarrc to tend over to 
local management. 

The General Motors strik- 
ers are demanding two seals 
on the board of the new 
company when it ta ke s over 
early next war. 

Their strike came on the eve 
of the launch on the South 
African market of a new 
Genera] Motors car, the 
Monza, for which the com- 
pany has spent millions on 
retooling. 

Mr Bob White, the com- 
pany’s manag in g director, said 
be was not going to be 
blackmailed and would not 
negotiate until the men had 
resumed work or left the 
premises. 

The sit-down strike is being 
led fry the black National 
Automobile and Allied Work- 
ers’ Union (NAAWU). 

Union official said yes- 
terday that a meeting on 
Tuesday night was attended 
by about 2,000 General Mo- 
tors workers who expressed 

"Hiyitf" nvw the handling hy 

General Motors of its with- 
drawal from South Africa and 
the sate of assets to local 
interests. ■ 

A union spokesman said: 
“At no stage has the company 
indicated its willingness to 
consult, advise or negotiate 
with NAAWU. At no stage has 
the company indicated to the 
union who the new owners 
win be and on what terms and 
conditions the new company 
will be constructed-”

burnt out and windows were

protest at the clearing of 
squatters from a house in

No one was reported hurt in 
the attacks. 

Slogans on the wall at the 
AEG showroom in the Copen-

Doubts turn into fears 



am******' 


The boy suddenly in love: Arthur Davies as Cennont with !«■«» Aiiberti as Violetta 


T his was no way to start a new 
season. Misgivings have been 
expressed on this page before 
now over the Royal Opera's 
declining ability to handle the 
popular Italian works which have to be 
among the comer-stones of the house 
repertoire, and to en gag e the rising 
generation of singers and conductors for. 
them. The present revival of la tnmata, 
a plodding and unidiomatic affair seems 
precisely calculated to turning doubts 
into outright fears. 

First allowances have to he for foe 
withdrawal of Kalia RiccmreUi from foe 
tide role. Bui it is doubtful whether even 
RicdareUTs highly accomplished Vio- 
letta — a performance yet to be beard in 
London — would have raised <his 
Traviata up to an acceptable level Her 
replacement, Lucia Aiiberti, was as- 
signed to some of the later performances, 
but foe interpretation is as yet unformed 
and unmoving. 

Aiiberti* s soprano first caught the ear 
at Wexford seven, years ago In a bright 
and sparkling comedy by foe Ricci 
brothers where she gave an appropriately 
bright and sparkling performance. Since 
then she has spent most of her time in the 
coloratura repertoire. This Violetta 
dearly marks a possible move into foe 
heavier dramatic roles. The problem is, 
fopugh, that her Violetta on London 
evidence is a d rama tic aero. 

The hunched shoulders of the first act 
may well suggest that consumption is 
just around the corner, but they do not

foim foe posture of a society hostess, 
even one who on this occasion appeared 
to be serving her guests an mstpid- 
looking white wine punch from water 
jugs. Thereafter Miss Aiiberti scarcely 
addressed a note to her companions on 
stage but instead stared fixedly at foe 
floorboards as though expecting Roland 
Rat. or some other furry creature, to 
come popping out of them. 

There were moments of vocal prom- 
ise, notably in “Diie alia gfovine" and 
parts of the final act. But for much of foe 
rest of the evening the voice was too busy 
finding itself, treading slippery ice and 
then sliding a bit or simply just retreating 
when p rogress was about to be made. 

Against' this uncomfortable and self- 
absorbed Violetta it was no surprise that 
Arthur Davies's first Covenl Garden 
Alfredo showed him a bit below his best 
He wisely declined to put too much 
pressure on the voice, except properly in 
foe **Mio rimorso" cabaletia, and kept to 
a light and blessedly lyrical interpreta- 
tion of a good-looking young boy 
suddenly in love. Some of the vocal 
inhibitions will surely mb off in more 
inspiring company. 


The Russian baritone Yuri Mazurok 
has a notable legato line and seems to 
take even fewer breaths than Cappuccilli. 
who gives the impression of living 
almost without oxygen. But Giorgio 
Germont is always in danger of being a 
dull old stick, as he rumbles on about 
Fair Provence, and that alas is just what 
Mazurok makes him. It is curious that 
Covent Garden did not engage an Italian 
for foe role and even odder that they did 
not turn lo one of the younger Italian 
maestri to conduct the opera. 

Yuri Simonov took an almost metro- 
nomic approach to this most emotional 
of pieces, so that foe heartbeat of “Pari gi. 
o cara" sounded much like foe death- 
rattle of foe final scene. The tempi 
chosen were often intolerably slow, e'en 
taking into account the ’ substantial 
pauses Aiiberti used from time to time. 
Claire Powell's Flora was the best of foe 
variably played supporting parts. The 
chorus was insipid throughout and well 
below international standards. The best 
marks on the home front go to Michael 
Rennison for giving the ancient produc- 
tion a visual spring-clean. 

The applause at the end was courteous 
and very, very brief: the audience had 
had a long evening with few rewards and 
were anxious to get home. No, this was 
indeed not the way to start foe '86-*87 
season.

Charming enterprise all too sustained r DANCE 


The Residents from San 
Fran ci so have recorded ax 
least 25 albums in 14 years, 
without surrendering the 
anonymity of their individual 
identities, which they have 
protected by wearing eyeball 
headpieces or other disguises 
when in public. While such an 
inscrutable image maybe an 
intriguing idea, and the 
quartet's impenetrable avant- 
garde music a quizzically 
diverting noise on record, 
there is little to prepare one for 
the magnitude of dour tedium 
embodied in their stage show. 

At Hammersmith, even 
when the singer took off his 
headgear at one point, it was 
barely possible to see his 
features in the gloomy lighting 
mostly provided by two hand- 
held orange lamps being 
flashed randomly around the 
bleak stage. He sang guttural 
atonal gibberish, while two of 
the other Residents performed 
pointless shadowy mime- .

i Wexford Festival 

This year's Wexford Festival 
was under threat, but a deter- 
mined rescue operation was 
mounted and all the planned 
performances were saved. 
Next year, the addition of 140 
seats to the present capacity of 
450 should bring in an extra 
£40.000 at the box-office. 

The opening production 
was Humperdinck’s Kfoigs- 
kinder, a sad tale of the goosc- 
giri who falls in love with the 
king's son. The opera, first 
performed at Munich in 1897. 
has never enjoyed a success to 
equal that of Hdnsel und 
Crete! four years earlier. 
Kimigskinder also has a witch; 
in this instance, however, she 
succeeds in poisoning her 
victims (the ill-feted lovers), 
but disappears from foe story 
herself in rather inconsequen- 
tial manner. ’ 

The witch ; (an imposing 
assumption by Pauline Tins- 
ley) has a noteworthy passage 
of sibilant venom, accompa- 
nied menacingly by timpani, 
but a lengthy first act is, in the 
main, short-breathed and frag- 
mented in its musical effect 
William Lewis, an American 

shows and the fourth lan- 
guished at the back providing 
the robotic musical accom- 
paniment on an Emulator 
keyboard. They were assisted 
by Snakefinger, a guitarist 
brave enough to be identified 
despite the discordant contri- 
bution his grotesquely fuzzed 
sound made. 

Ironically, in seeking to' 
overturn so many of the 
conventions of rode music 
performance, foe Residents 
merely underlined why those 
conventions exist. Light 
shows enable you to see foe 
performers; knowledge of who 
the performers are enhances 
interest in what they might be 
doing; certain harmonies and 
rhythms are often useful qual- 
ities in music: and so forth. 

* Although the show was 
obviously meticulously re- 
hearsed and systematically 
executed, weirdness alone 
could not compensate for foe 
humourless denial of so many 
performance norms. The chal- 
lenge was reduced to how long 
one could endure such an air 
of claustrophobic monotony. [

Danieta Bechiy was winningly

I can imagine this concert 
being better boused, as no 
doubt it will be as it continues 
its spider's journey around the 
Arts Council Contemporary 
Muse Network. The Blooms-

tive screening behind the 
singers, was too dry for a vocal 
ensemble; it was also disgrace- 
fully noisy, apparently be- 
cause judo was being energet- 
ically practised upstairs. 

Quite apart from these 
acoustic disabilities there was 
foe visual embarrassment of 
being faced with six or eigh'. 
singers on a stage. One ex- 
pected them to do something, 
though in feet when they did 
make an attempt at acting out 
Orlando Gibbons's Crier of 
London one wished they were 
not: a surplice, some cock- 
ney/rustic accents and gen- 
erous quantities of upstaging 
do not make for much of a 
theatrical experience. Having 
said that, I am not sure how 
this piece could be performed

goes on a bit 

With Tancredi, Wexford 


provided another of their 
winners. The opera, dating 
from 1813, with libretto by 
Rossi, after Voltaire’s Tan- 
cride, is a largely sombre piece 
of truly remarkable eloquence 
when compared to the popular 
mode of opera seria of the 
period. There are regular out- 
bursts of engagingly brash 
Rossini, and some showy 
items from the tenor, which 
gave Bruce Ford, as the Syra- 
cusan ruler Argirio, the 
opportunity to demonstrate 
his agility and security above 
foe stave. But foe heart of foe 
work is made up of a succes- 
sion of genuinely touching 
melodies, here most ex- 
pressively shaped under foe 
direction W Arnold Ostman. 

Thp cast was a strong one: 
foe heroine, Amenaide, was 
sung in the most brilliant 
manner by the Danish so- 
prano Inga Nielsen; Petteri 
Salomaa offered a solid 
Orbazzano; and in foe travesti 
role of Tancredi the American 
mezzo Kathleen Kuhlmann 
gave a performance of rare 
distinction. Her bearing was 
virile and heroic, conveying 
both strength and gentleness. 

The Wexford production of 
Tancredi can be heard at foe 
Queen Elizabeth Hall on 
November 4.

The “song and story" recital 
which the Songmakers' Al- 
manac has made its own can 
occasionally veer close to 
dilettantism, when foe ditties 
so painstakingly researched by 
the pianist Graham Johnson 
and his colleagues are dearly 
second-rate salon fodder. But 
in this Dvorak programme, 
"Songs from foe Old World” 
the musical material smoul- 
dered with passion, and the 
underlying theme was con- 
cerned not with foe periph- 
eries of 19th-century musical 
life but with a central — 

: perhaps the central - issue. 

For Johnson used foe me- 
dium of Dvorak's songs to 
trace the gradual erosion of 
German domination of Bohe- 
mian culture, the new accep- 
tance of the Czech language as 
a suitable vehicle for lyricism, 
and music's symbolic position 
jn'foe nascency of nationlism. 
Dvorak emerged as a naive 
but obstinate champion for 
his country, and Brahms as a 
genuine and generous ally in 
the "enemy camp". 

The feet that so much could 
be made of some rarely-heard 
songs suggests that Dvorak's 
lyrical output has been seri- 
ously underestimated. Nearly 
everyone can hum “Kdyz nine 
start matka” (possibly better 
known as “Songs my Mother 
Taught Me”), but the serene 


Op 73 set V ndrodnim tOmt, 
the vivid sexual allegory 
“Jahody” and the magnifi- 
cently fervent ^oationalist 
anthem" from The Jacobin 
should surely be in every 
serious recitalist's repertoire. 

The problem is, of course, 
that Czech pronunciation 
does not fell easily on every 
singer's Bps. The four per- 
forming here were exemplary 
in this respect, and the women 
- Carol Smith and Felicity 
Palmer — also commanded 
foe vibrant, hard-edged tone 
one associates with Central 
Europe. They complemented 
each other perfectly in foe 
Moravian Duets. Neither 
Martyn Hill nor Richard Jack- 
son seemed quite as suited in 
timbre to this repertoire, but 
both contributed well-consid- 
ered performances.

Domns 

Elizabeth Hall 

Enticed by a package^deal of 
ticket, sandwiches, wine and 
succulent programming, the 
crowds are pouring in to the 
South Bank's new series of 
Lunchtime Serenades. 

Domes was on the menu on 
Tuesday. You used to have to 
track down these musicians 
on a windy hilltop, or in an 
English country garden, where 
they would play inside 'heir 
portable geodesic dome. In it, 
they developed a way of 


Peter On- 

in aptness on foe sacred side of 
the programme. Acoustically 
and stylistically, the Kyrie and 
Gloria from Byrd’s four-part 
Mass were a long way from 
home, but Jonathan Lloyd’s 
Mass of 1983 was in the right 
place. It is, after all, a Mass at 
a remove: there might some- 
where be a perfectly normal 
setting, one feels, from which ! 
Lloyd has snipped bits for his 
song of long, slow changes and 
insistent bird-like repetitions. 

Woven around the rest of 
the programme were the three 
sections of Nigel Osborne's 
Choratis, whim made less 
impression this way than 
when sung together. Possibly 
foe unavoidable comparison 
with Berio was also to blame, 
for Osborne here is deep into 
Berio’s territory of melding 
different kinds of ethnic sing- 
ing. He does it very well, even 
beautifully, but there seemed 
no real reason for those six 
people to be behaving so 
oddly. 

Paul Griffiths 

listening to themselves, and 
playing to their widely varied 
audiences, which has now 
made them one of the most 
highly-skilled chamber groups 
on any concert platform. 

Tuesday’s audience of well 
over 300 stretched bade into 
the shadows of foe Queen 
Elizabeth Hall, yet Domus 
continued to work by drawing 
foe listener in rathef than by 
projecting the music out. The 
sound is slim, light intensely 
active: Mozart’s E flat Piano 
Quartet barely touched the 
ground, so fluid and finely 
modulated was its phrasing 
and repartee. 

Susan Tomes, pianist and 
founder member, sparks foe 
action from the keyboard with 
quicksilver suggestions and 
anticipations, and trickling 
passages of harmonic gear- 
change. The alacrity with 
which violin (Krysia Osos- 
towiczX viola (Tim Boulton) 
and cello (Timothy Hugh) 
pass the pared of ideas and 
responses came into its own in 
their Faurt Piano Quartet in C 
minor. 

This is the work which has 
just won them foe Chamber 
Music Record of foe Year 
award, and it is easy to see 
why. They dare to start and 
finish in foe eye of the storm, 
insisting on the spirit behind 
Faurt’s refinement, foe bold- 
ness within his subtlety, and 
recognize that here foe piano, 
too. is at heart a stringed 
instrument

Extemporary 

The Place 

The two works given by 
Extemporary Dance Theatre 
at The Place on Tuesday night 
most both have been a lot of 
fhn for their performers. 

In Elbow Room Game, we 
read, the choreographer Lau- 
rie Booth mostly gave the 
actions for the dancers them- 
selves to make up Into se- 
quences, and prescribed cer- 
tain rales to be followed. 
W ithin those limits, the danc- 
ers choose, each performance, 
whether to do their own ma- 
terial or someone rise’s, 
whether to change a solo into a 
duet, whether to dance in 

untffld Of ranftn 

It puts an awful lot of 
responsibility on the perform- 
ers, which most of Ex tem- 
porary's team are not up to. 
The outcome is busy bat 
chaotic, sincere bet naive. On 
the other hand, the outcome 
looks no sillier than many of 
Booth's other works. Presum- 
ably that merely confirms 
what one had long believed, 
that, although he Is a good 
dancer. Booth is not ranch of a 
choreographer. 

In Audible Scenery, Steve 
Paxton defined his cootribn- ’ 
tion not as choreography but 
"scoring and direction" The 
score, he tells ns, is 27 pages of 
photo graphs of sportsmen and 
women, from which he com- 
posed set points between 
which the dancers find then- 
own way. 

Both choreographers, I 
mnst mention, were offered the 
assistance of two yoimg men to 
make noises daring the action. 
Wearing identical pyjama- 
type garments, both pointy- 
nosed and crop-headed, this 
pair bang various innocent 
instruments mercilessly.

in the bonuses you receive. Yearly, your 
policy increases in value through a 
generous Annual Bonus. 

Because of our great financial 
strength, we are often able, like Iastyear, 
to declare a Special Bonus as well. These 
are permanent additions to your Personal 
Pension Plan. Once they are given, they 
cannot be taken away 

FAIR TO ALL OUR POLICYHOLDERS 

When your policy matures, 
Norwich Union also pays an Additional 
(some companies call it ‘Terminal’) 
Bonus. Since this Bonus can vary, accord- 
ing to current investment conditions, 
Norwich Union places less emphasis on it 
than most other companies, preferring to 
give policyholders permanent benefits, 
rather than wait until the policy matures. 
This way, every with-profits policyholder 
shares in our success. A Norwich Union 
Policy isn’t just superb value for money 
It means you enjoy real security, and 
peace of mind 

CHECK WITH THE EXPERTS 

Do seek independent financial 
advice, from an insurance broker, say. 
Your broker will be able to help you find 
the with-profits policy that mostsuits your 
needs - be it a personal pension, repaying 
a mortgage, or a means of profitable 
medium- to long-term saving. We’re sure 
your broker will agree that by any object- 
ive measure, the value for money Norwich 
Union offers is extremely hard to beat

Peter Ackroyd on 
the closest we have 
got to Shakespeare 

THE COMPLETE WORKS 

By William Shakespeare 

Edited by Stanley Wells 
and Gary Taylor 
Oxford, £19.95 


chosen the latter but, in the case of King 
Lear, they have primed two separate 
versions. 

So this is pie first edition fully to 
recognize the implications of one Obvi- 
ous met — that Shakespeare altered his 
plays in the light of theatrical practice. 
And in the process it has become clear 
that an author who never seemed 
particularly concerned about the print- 
ing or publication ofhis works (he never 
bothered to proof-read the Quarto 
editions brought out by his own compa- 
ny) concerned himself primarily with 
what would work upon the stage. Ben 
Jonson's report from the actors that he 
“never blotted out line” still stands, of 
course; but we have to recall that for 
Shakespeare this was only the first stage 
in a long and often complicated process. 


The language creates the reality, and 
the alternative lines here create an 
alternative world. The “Sunnc” is not . 
the “sun”; it is another object, in another 
constellation of language. To read Shake- 
speare in his original spelling is to have a 
quite different experience of his writ- 
ing — for in his words, at once recogniz- 
able and unfamiliar, we may trace the 
progress of our own longue and the 
mysteries of its change. Such an activity 
is just as integral a part of reading 
Shakespeare as any other. To print 
Shakespeare in modem spelling is to 
bowdlerize him. 


H owever, the editing of Shake- 
speare depends largely upon 
the temperament and the char- 
acter of the editor; we no 
longer live in an age of science, and there 
are no “objective” editorial standards. 
At least so it has proved, apparently, 
with the most controversial decision that 
Taylor and Wells have taken: the 
inclusion within the' Shakespearian 
canon of the poem, “Shall I die?”. They 
slate that “there is no strong reason to 
doubt the ascription”, although a lengthy 
correspondence in The Times Literary 
Supplement suggested otherwise. Cary 
Taylor put his case, and, to this neutral 
observer at least, got the worst of the 
argument. And yet here is the poem, in 
all its non-existent glory. 

This is one of those occasions when 
scholarship overreaches itself, and not all 
the computer programmes and photo- 
graphic facsimiles in the world have been 
able, to forestall it The greater the 
technical expertise and the more com- 
prehensive the scholarship, it seems, the 
larger the hubris. So now we have this 
ghastly little poem which will do nothing 
to increase Shakespeare's reputation 
(although perhaps h is a little late in the 
day to worry about that), added to the 
canon in what can only be described as a 
cavalier fashion. 

The pity is that any controversy over 
the decision may overshadow the punc- 
tilious accuracy of this edition in all 
other respects. It is a pity, too, that such a 
monument of Shakespearian scholarship 
should be even so slightly defaced; but 
there it is. One can only hope, to quote 
from the poet himselC that others will 
“Look what is best, that best I wish in 
thee—”. 


B ut praise for the scholarship of 
this edition must be tempered, at 
least in one respect- Hus is a 
modernized version of the plays 
and, although a second volume with the 
original spellings is promised, the fact 
that this one has been published first 
suggests that it must be seen as taking 
precedence — ai least for that strange 
being known as the “general reader'’. 
The editors really enter no caveat about 
the nature of such modernization, 
however, accept to point out some of the 
difficulties involved in accurate transpo- 
sition. But the concept of any “modern” 
edition remains highly problematic —

Tod. Norman Wame had died 
in 1905; but Beatrix wrote to 
Greene that she did not care

criticism, and if anything

Judy Taylor adopts ■ her 
subject's common-sense ap- 
proach, referring to die do- 
mestic tyranny endured by 
Beatrix without comment, 
and with rather less emotional 
colour than Beatrix used to 
describe the death of a pet 
mouse who fell off a chande- 
lier and expired in the palm of 
her hand. The effect of Miss 
Taylor’s un enquiring reti- 
cence is to make Beatrix's own 
comments, where quoted, par- 
ticularly suggestive; when she 
writes obliquely to a friend of 
“painful unpleasantness at

unspecific horror of Mr Tod's . 
lair in Bull Bank. Her art

Tom Hutchinson 

BURNING 
CHROME 
By William Gibson 

GoUancz. £8.95 


Science fiction knows exactly 
how it got to its present from 
its past. If is the most self- 
aware of genres. Therefore H is 
appropriate chat its current 
hero is William Gibson, him- 
self the most self-aware of 
practitioners in the field. 

This collection of short sto- 
ries maintains the brilliant 
impetus of his novels Necro- 
mancer and Count Zero, ex- 
ploring again the Gibson 
world of urban decay built on 
mechanical marvels: punk 
strained through the mesh of 
high-tech in a society where 
computers don't just solve 
problems, they compete. 

That Mr Gibson knows 
what he is achieving is re- 
vealed in one story, “The 
Gernsback Continuum” in 
which a photographer is 
haunted by idealized images 
from the sdeorifiction pulp- 
magazines of The Thirties: 
“The designers were popu- 
lists, you see: they were trying 
to give the public what it 
wanted. What the public want- 
ed was the future.” 

At once a lament and a 
critique, these stories show tire 
way SF is being rewired. 
Gibson, his finger jftteriogly 
on the Easi-forward button, 
shows the direction in which

e must have been aw- 
ful at 18. His pale face; 
long hair and black- 
rimmed glasses peer 
out of the newspaper 
clippings of the day with all the 
chic, po-faced smugness of 1968. It 
was a time when the young were 
adored, few more so than the editor 
of Student magazine. 

“Richard Branson does care." 
breathed Audrey Slaughter in the 
London Evening Mews. “So does 
his editorial team. They're young 
L themselves: they've probably suf- 
6 fered themselves. And they know 
ih, only too well the agony of not 
Re, knowing where to turn for help." 
idlj Those were different limes. No- 
hostfody falls for gilded youth any 
Repinore. But Branson is still cropping 
Pnp in the cuttings, smiling now and 
pajgnflki ng everybody uneasy. It is not 
'-ult to see why. for he is the

Branson was born in 

family whose menfolk 
tender for his ; sjx ’ eralions . ^ 

It was a ge$Hj s father was struggling 
from i the meg hj s way in the profession. 
His mother. Eve Huntiey-FIindt, 
had been a dancer — playing Peter 
Pan in London — and an air hostess 
in South America in the Thirties, 
when you had to wear an oxygen 
mask if you flew over mountains. 

They lived at Shamley Green, 
near Guildford in Surrey. Branson 
was sent away to school at eight 
Academically he was pretty much a 
write-off. though he was an impres- 
sive athlete. He was sent to a 
crammer at Seaford. Sussex, where 
he improved enough academically 
to be admitted to Stowe. 

By the age of 16 he had Bung 
himself into preparations for a 
national magazine, first for school- 
children and subsequently for stu- 
dents. He spent his time in the 
phone box outside the school 
library, soliciting ads for the first 
edition, and inside the library 
writing letters to names in Who's 
Who, demanding contributions. 
He estimates that he received one 
article for every 50 letters. 

Then, with £3.000 worth of 
advertising under his beh. he left 
Stowe in the summer of 1967. In 
January’ 1968 the first issue of 
Student appeared. It was emphati- 
cally not a journal of the counter- 
culture. Branson's magazine 
copied the best professional prod- 
ucts of the lime — Nova and the 
Sunday colour supplements — and 
went for big-name interviews, plus 
practical issues of student life. 

He printed 50.000 and sold 
them. The next three years were 
taken up with day-and-night hus- 
tling for ads. Issues appeared once 
they were paid for. Even so, they 
did manage to reach a circulation 
ofl 00.000. 

Then Branson's girlfriend be- 
came pregnant and, appalled by the 


inadequacy of agencies available to 
help them, he set up the Student 
Advisory Centre in 1970. The baby 
was aborted and he proceeded to 
help his contemporaries with simi- 
lar problems, plus the usual round 
of drugs and depression, from the 
crypt of a church in Paddington. 

In 1969 Branson had, on a 
hunch, placed an ad in Student for 
cheap mail-order records. The 
response was embarrassingly large 
in view of the fact that Branson had 
no actual records. He could not go 
direct to the record companies, 
who were trying to prevent exactly 
the son of price-cutting operation 
he was setting up. Eventually he 
found a shop-owner in the East 
End who would sell to him. 
Meanwhile, he had closed the 
magazine; Virgin mail order took 
off and publishing was. for the 
moment, abandoned. 


houseboat for £200 in 1967. Two 
years later he married an American 
artist, who persuaded him that she 
needed more space. They sold the 
boat and bought a house. His wife 
then fell in love with the purchaser 
of the boat and moved badt in with 
him. They were divorced, and for 
the last 11 years be has lived with 
Joan Tempi emann, with whom he 
has had two children — Holly, aged 
four, and Sam, aged one. The latest 
houseboat in Little Venice is now 
his office. They have a London 
home nearby and a house near 


Shipton Manor. 
Vinrin 


B 


ut Virgin quickly grew 
over-confident. The 
company was landed 
with a £60.000 bill for 
back taxes, and at the 
same time, the whole business was 
threatened • by a postal 
strike. Branson's lieutenant. Nick 
Powell, one of a growing band, was 
despatched to find a shop in 
Oxford Street He came across an 
empty floor above a shoe shop at 
the eastern end. They took it and 
on opening day in January 1971 the 
queue stretched all the way down 
to Tottenham Court Road. 

Once more Branson was ahead 
of the game, but he had to move 
quickly. The big competitors, when 
they woke up, would want to stamp 
out this price-cutting upstart so he 
had to grow as fast as possible. He 
opened shops across the counuy. 
Overheads were kept to the mini- 
mum; he was simply piling ’em 
high and selling 'em cheap. 

For £25.000 the company also 
bought Shipton Manor near Ox- 
ford and started converting it into a 


recording studio. In 1972 the 
Virgin record label was born with a 
world-wide success, Mike 
Oldfield's Tubular Bells. 

After hitting a bad patch in the 
mid-Seventies. when its first batch 
of musicians had fallen from 
fashion, the label was revived and 
the signing of the Sex Pistols in 
1977 was followed by such Eighties 
successes as Phil Collins and Boy 


George. Meanwhile the shops 
established themselves as more 
sophisticated megastores, retailing 
the diverse but all pop-related 
products now coming from the 
parent group — videos, books and 
so on. Gradually Virgin had be- 
come a loose collection of related 
businesses. 

Branson had established a now- 
familiar lifestyle. He had bought a 


THE THOUGHTS OF BRANSON 


On public speaking: “People 
assumed I knew everything about 
being a student, so I was 
asked by German television to 
make a speech on the steps of 
L> Diversity College. First there 
was Tariq Ali and Daniel 
Cohn-Bendit and then I forgot 
my lines after about two 
minutes. I've never done it s in c e ." 


Trgin: 1 

with everything. I've often 
thought of setting np 
businesses just for the name — 
like Virgin Foods or a model 
agency called Virgin Girls." 

On the early days in business: 
“The motive was survival rather 
than making money. What we 
were really about was a way of 


life, doing things we were 
interested in." 


On his failed Event magazine: 
“It was the only time I've ever 
had to lay people off. It goes 
without saying it was very 
unpleasant. At the same time, 
if you're not willing to take a 
calculated risk, yonll never do 
anything." 


On new projects: “I immerse 
myself completely in any new 
venture, then appoint people 
to run it nod stand back." 


On unions: “It hasn't cropped 
op, bnt if somebody wanted to be 
a member they could be. If 
they did, though, 1 would think 
we had failed." 


jrgin, in the interval, has come 
into its own in the Eighties. It has 
become a major force in the leisure 
industry. Offices were opened rap- 
idly in 20 countries, the payroll 
rose to 2 ,500 people and it turned 
over £325 million last year. Its 
most spectacular expansion was 
into Virgin Atlantic Airlines. 

For the flotation, which takes 
place in the next few weeks, the 
airline will be split off as a separate 
company because the City does not 
feel such businesses are as instantly 
attractive as Virgin’s core opera- 
tions. Some 25 per cent of the 
company is to be offered. Branson 
owns 85 per cent malting him 
worth around £200 million. Most 
of his proceeds will find their way 
back into the business, some to buy 
out the airline. 

Branson has again become a 
darling of the media; he indulges in 
stums like breaking the record for 
crossing the Atlantic in a boat or 
abseiling down Centre Point for 
charity. Latterly, he has taken on 
the Government's UK 2000 cam- 
paign to dean up Britain. The style 
reinforces the image of the rock 
and roll industrialist who made it 
big by being nice. 

The houseboat that doubles as 
the head office of a £250 million 
corporation looks like the interior 
of the bouse of a polytechnic

in the late Sixties. It is all stripped

hoc ornamentation. Only the 
peach-coloured silk cumins sug- 
gest a different scale of wealth. 

Branson stares downward when 
he speaks of himself or the past Afl 
his eye-contact is reserved for talk 
of the business today. Now aged 36, 
for more than 20 years be has been 
hustling virtually day and night to 
make his ideas work. 


I n effect, he has done nothing 
else. He speaks wistfully of 
his business philosophy as 
something that may one day 
do the world some good by 
p arading other companies to 
treat their employees more 
sympathetically. But, on balance, 
he seems to have had as many 
rows, fought as many battles, and 
proved himself as ruthlessly deter- 
mined to win as any other success- 
ful businessman. 

“We are not trying to change 
society and we never were trying to 
change society." he says. “I didn't 
have any ideology, just some of the 
things that came out of the Sixties, 
like better treatmoit of minorities, 
which 1 happen to agree with.” 

While we speak, Branson breaks 
off periodically to add to a long list 
of things to remember, which he 
keeps in an A4 spiral-bound note- 
book. Lite many successful people, 
he seems one-dimensional and 
conscious of it He reads little and 
was never interested in music. • 
Branson has been in perpetual 
motion since the Sixties: organ- 
izing, being gripped by successive 
enthusiasms and always wanting to 
go somewhere, to do something. 
Such all-purpose restlessness was, 
of course, the primary characteris- 
tic of that decade. In Branson's 
version it just happened to prove 
workable well into the Eighties.

HOW WELL DOES YOUR COMPANY 
PRESENT ITSELF ON PAPER? 


Launch parties, please 


Richard Ormond dreams of a 
champagne bottle and some- 
one with about £5 million to 
spare, the prerequisites for his 
most ambitious caper yet - a 
maritime museum on water. 
Outline proposals for the mu- 
seum, partly in London’s dis- 
used docks and partly in a 
building with a floor covered 
in water, have already been 
approved by the London 
Docklands Development Cor- 
poration. “It would be a sort 
of 12-month boat show," says 
Ormond, the new director of 
the National Maritime Mu- 
seum (the one on land in 
Greenwich). 

Ancient craft restored to at 
least river-worthiness will be 
back in their element, some 
giving rides, like the wonder- 
ful 1893 Thames Conservancy 
boat Donota, which looks 
more like a floating tea par- 
lour than an official launch. 
Modern craft, too, will feature. 
The museum already has the 
Cowes Trophy winner, 
Surfury. the ofTshore 
powerboat. 

It is one of about 70 boats 
from canoes and Mirror din- 
ghies to Thames barges and 
river steamers, a third of them 
on show in Neptune HaU, 
mostly high on walls, on 
plinths and hanging from the 
ceiling, and ail sadly dry. “The 
idea is that the museum would 
be tied in to a developer, 
whoever was planning the 
development would add a 
little bit on to create the actual 
building for us. We've worked 
out how we see it.” 

They hope it will be in 
Canary Wharf, handily placed 
for the new light railway that is 
racing towards completion; 
the LDDC see it in the next 
dock up. the North Quay. 
“The main problem seems to 
be that the light railway would 
mean they couldn't bring in 
tall boats." an LDDC spokes- 
man said. 

For the Boat Centre, as it 
will be called, also intends to 
organize historic boat regattas, 
to celebrate craft of a particu- 


From humble canoes 
to Thames barges, 
the Boat Centre has 
incredible hulks but 
no place to call home 


AD aboard: Richard Ormond 
on a tag in the Neptune Hall 

lar type or age. “And we want 
to be able to offer free over- 
night berthing to interesting 
boats of all types," says Ste- 
phen Riley, Ormond's curator 
of ships and antiquities, “We 
want them to feel that the Boat 
Centre is a natural home, and 
it will mean that there is 
always something different to 
see." 

Ormond and Riley hope 
that the legions of ancient boat 


collectors, who form them- 
selves into organizations like 
the Albert Strange Association 
and the Old Gaffers* Associ- 
ation, will see the Centre as 
their Mecca, and they will be 
consulting closely with the 
Maritime Trust, owners of the 
Cutty Sark (which will stay at 
Greenwich). 

“We've been inhibited in 
acquiring things simply be- 
cause we haven't bad the 
space to display than," says 
Riley. Ormond adds: “There 
is no reason why many of our 
most ancient craft shouldn't 
be on the water — they have all 
been property restored — and 
there is no reason either why 
we should not be looking at 
the most up-to-date boats, 
too." 

There will be demonstra- 
tions of sail-making, canoe- 
building and crafts, but the 
plan to base the NMM's 
marine archaeology depart- 
ment there, for the tourists to 
watch, has been rejected. “It 
seemed to have the immediate 
appeal of watching a plank 
warp.'* says Riley. 

This isn't the first attempt at 
establishing the Boat Centre. 
Ormond inherited this 
particular gleam in the eye 
from Neil Cossons, his prede- 
cessor. The original plan, for a 
£10 million centre near the 
Greenwich- Isle of Dogs foot 
tunnel, went under beneath, 
the pressure of local opinion 
and ancient covenants, which 
said that there should be no 
building in the area; practical 
problems of the tidal race, 
which would make “pleasure 
boat" trips impossible, and 
the need For some sort of pier 
protruding into the raver, 
which the Port of London 
Authority did not like. 

Sadly, the Boat Centre will 
not be ready in time for the 
National Maritime Museum's 
half-century celebrations next 
year, but it could be in 
operation in 1989.

CHILDWATCH 


When Esther Rantzen touched on the 
sexual abuse of children in March, the 
response was phenomenal. Tonight on 
BBC 1 she launches' the ChildWatch 
campaign against a cruel yet common 
crime. Sally Brompton investigates

K ate Adams was 
three years old 
when her father 
raped her for the 
first time. She was 
about 12 when he stopped, 
unnerved by her fits of hys- 
teria and perpetual ill-health. 
He did, however, continue to 
make sexual and physical 
assaults on her 12 younger 
brothers and sisters. “The 
worst pan of my childhood 
was lying in bed listening to 
him abuse all the others," 
Kate recalls. 

Even today, at the age of SO, 
Kate looks back on her shat- 
tered childhood with a mix- 
ture of sorrow, aqger and 
humiliation. To say that she is 
one of -the lucky ones is to 
make a mockery of the phys- 
ical and emotional torture and 
deprivation which she suf- 
fered during those most 
vulnerable and formative 
years: yet, Kate herself insists 
that she is lucky because she 
has finally come to terms with 
her past and is, at last, able to 
talk about what she describes 
bitterly as her “dirty” 
childhood. 

Less fortunate are the hun- 
dreds of thousands of men, 
women and children who 
remain locked in a nightmare 
world of silence for a variety 
of reasons — they may be too

think it's a normal way of life. 
But as you get older you 
realize it's wrong and you 
think, "Surely not everyone 
does this.' Then you realize 
they don't, and that's when 
you get screwed up." 

At school, Kate became a 
rebel who found it difficult to 
make friends. She went 
shoplifting “to' get my own 
back on life” and grew into a 
promiscuous teenager. 

- “Basically, I was attracted 
to anyone who really made a 
fuss of me," she says. “I'd 
never had any cuddles and 
that was what I wanted more 
than anything. I still da 

“When I was very young I 
was attracted to older men. I 


always used men.' I used to 
think, *If they want something 
out of me IH try to get as 
much out of them as 1 can,' 
and that's an awful way to be. I 
think I do still use 
relationships." 

She married young, mainly 
to escape her father who, even 
after he ceased sexually abus- 
ing her, still mistreated her 
and threatened to kill her if 
she told anyone what had 
happened. 

Kate was in her thirties 
when her father died of a heart 
attack while serving a four- 
year prison sentence for phys- 
ical child- abuse. Kale's 
bitterness extends to her 
mother, now dead, whom she 
has never been able to forgive 


for doing nothing to stop the 
violence. 

“I'm sure my mother knew 
what was happening but 
whenever I tried to tell her 
about it she pretended not to 
believe me. When 1 was a very 
little girl she used to smack me 
like a jealous woman." 

Now divorced, Kate still has 
nightmares about her child- 
hood. “All my life, until 
recently, I lived a lie which 
eventually caused me to have 
a nervous breakdown. I never 
had children because 1. would 
have been so worried if they 
had been daughters. 1 know 1 
would have watched them all 
the time." 

It is this Cyclical pattern of 
child abuse which greatly con- 


predictable long-term legacy 
of child abuse, the immediate 
effects are devastating to a 
child — especially since it is 
quite common for children to 
hold themselves to Name for 
i their parents' actions. 

One woman in her early 
twenties, who wrote to Esther 
Ramzen's ChildWatch pro- 
gramme. compares her child- 
hood to a time-bomb "just 
waiting for dad to explode”. 
Sexually and physically 
abused by her father for most 
of her childhood, her reaction 
was typical — “I felt hatred 
■ towards myself. I felt it was

THE TIMES 
DIARY 

Primus inter 
the runners 

Hours after yesterday's reports 
dampening speculation over Mrs 
Thatcher's retirement plans, the 
name of her party chairman, 
Norman Tebbit, yesterday in- 
advertently rekindled talk or her 
likely successor. Quashing the 
received view that Teb bit’s per- 
sonal circumstances have blunted 
his ambition, his Chingford agent, 
James Costello, tells me that 
Tebbit finnty believes he is in line 
to succeed the Prime Minister. 
Citing recent conversations with 
him, Costello tells me: "All things 
come to an end. Should the day 
ever come when Maggie decides to 

step down there is not much 

doubt in Norman's mind that be is 
the front-runner.” When 1 pul 
Costello's comments to his private 
office, Tebbit was on the line 
within 30 minutes. “My views on 
the matter are absolutely clear, i 
don't know who is the front- 
runner and I don't care,” be told 
me. But would he accept the 
leadership if offered? “If people 
wanted me to do it then 1 would 
do it." 

• The man finally picked by BBC 
TV to present Newsnight, weak- 
ened by the loss of both John Tnsa 
and Olivia O’Leary: photogenic

Dressing down 

There are some embarrassing 
questions to be asked of Lambeth 
council in London. The stupen- 
dously racially-aware Labour 
council, led by black activist 
Linda Bellos, has been caught by 
the clerical union Apex buying 
uniforms that may have been 
manufactured in South Africa. An 
Apex circular says the uniforms 
were bought from Duchess Uni- 
forms, a London subsidiary of a 
Cape Town-based firm. The 
circular adds that Duchess con- 
fesses to being incapable of 
distinguishing its South African- 
made garments from those pro- 
duced in the UK. Yesterday Phyl 
Geary, who keeps Duchess's 
books, confirmed she had sold 
catering outfits to the council 
"...and the London School of 
Economics. I don't suppose they 
ever stopped to ask where they 
came from.” 

Skye blue 

Isle of Skye residents have good 
reason to resent the arrival of a 
film crew making a television 
advertisement for British Gas's 
privatization campaign: Skye does 
not have a gas supply. Local 
solicitor Ian Christie, who has 
lodged a formal letter of com- 
plaint. tells me: “There's no mains 
gas in any of the north-west of 
Scotland. To imply that there are 
supplies in the far-flung parts of 
Britain is misleading.” Indeed, the 
gasless residents are per se ineli- 
gible for the preferential share 
offer to British Gas customers. A 
Department of Energy spokesman 
says the location was chosen for its 
dramatic scenery, “not to imply 
that gas is available on Skye”.

Big Bang: the fatal mistake 


John Bell reports on the puzzlement 
abroad over the City’s muddle 


It has taken the City less than 
three days to go from Big Bang to 
big flop. Overseas, they can 

scarcely believe iu 

At home, most people accept 
the official City line that the de- 
regulation of the stock market and 
the start of an electronic, screen- 
based dealing system are just 
another example of Britain at the 
frontier of technology. Abroad, 
they have been wondering first 
what took us so long, and secondly 
why in the first three days we seem 
determined to make everyone 
rise's mistakes all over again. 

For the best part of a decade, 
visiting US business men have 
regarded our Stock Exchange with 
an admiration normally reserved 
for Anne Hathaway's cottage, the 
Beefeaters at the Tower of 
London. Stonehenge and other 
ancient monuments. 

While America scrapped fixed 
commissions over II years ago 
and has developed highly efficient 
screen-based systems for trading 
securities, the London Stock Ex- 
change had. until three years ago, 
been making do comfortably in 


the technological stone age. 

As in most of Fleet Street, the 
Stock Exchange has been rriectam 
to reform itself: to remove the 
restrictive practices .which ex- 
cluded foreigners- to allow com- 
petitive charges to customers; and 
to change its 80-year-old trading 
system. 

At the heart of this week's fiasco 
in Throgmorton Street is the feet 
that the Stock Exchange came to 
Big Bang as a response to external 
pressures. It certainly did not 
embrace the challenge of high 
technology as an advance in its 
own righL 

There were mounting legal pres- 
sure for the exchange to abandon 
its cartel on charges and to open 
membership to all comets. 
London was losing business to 
New York and elsewhere. 

But the Stock Exchange decided 
on a traditional British com- 


promise. It would have to develop 
a new system for traders to buy 
and sell blocks of shares by 
computer, for that simply did not 
exist at the time. But instead of 
creating a new system for 
distributing' information about 
that electronic market to the 
offices of its members and their 
clients, the Stock Exchange de- 
cided to stick with its existing 
Topic sc reen system. Thai is 
proving to be a fetal miscalcula- 
tion. Quite simply. Topic cannot 
cope with 200 inquiries a second. 
For Big Bang to work properly, it 
simply has to. 

First responses from abroad 
tend to express rather more regret 
than surprise. Britain seems to be 
maintaining its reputation for the 
invention rather than the applica- 
tion of technology. 

Peter Da Puzzo, head of inter- 
national equity trading at the 


major New York securities house. 
Shearson Lehman, said yesterday: 
**We did not expect that you 
would have had so many prob- 
lems and I guess we are dis- 
appointed that your systems were 
not tested more thoroughly before 
Big Bang. But we don't think it is a 
tragedy. Eventually London will 
solve its problems and take its 
. place in the international market.” 

At the front line now in the 
battle for business in the City, the 
men who man the dealing desks 
are deflated. “We can't trust prices 
on the screens, can't get a proper 
feel for what is happening in the 
market and suspect that things will 
be tike this for ages," is a typical 
view. 

The Stock Exchange is strug- 
gling manfully to patch up the 
system, mostly by cutting out 
many of Topic's services to give 
priority to prices from the new 
screen trading system SEAQ 
(Stock Exchange Automated Quo- 
tations). 

But it is likely to be a matter of 
months before the performance 
matches the promise. 


Paul Vallely concludes his report on the tragedy of Ethiopia’s peasants 


Land blighted by ideology 



A nd still Ethiopia needs 
food. Two years after 
the crisis of the camp al 
Korem hit the tele- 
vision screens, the hap- 
less nation is the only one in the 
sub-Sahelian region that still re- 
quires large amounts of foreign 
food. Much of the explanation for 
that may seem like old news: a 
degraded environment, a popula- 
tion maintaining a borderline 
existence without reserves and a 
government whose priorities place 
the military and the urban elite 
above the peasant farmer. 

But there may be more to it than 
that A report to be published next 
month by Cultural Survival, a 
group of anthropologists attached 
to Harvard University’s Peabody 
Museum of Archaeology and 
Ethnology, suggests that the re- 
gime in Addis Ababa has locked 
itself into a vast collectivization 
programme designed to promote, 
at the expense of subsistence 
farmers, the production of cash 
crops to earn the regime the hard 
currency it needs to continue its 
wars against liberation move- 
ments on several fronts. 

This process, dubbed 
villagization, is happening on a 
scale that recalls the actions of 
Stalin in the Thirties. It has 
already brought about the en- 
forced movement of three million 
peasants. The relocation of 20 
million more is planned. And 
according to the Harvard report, 
the financing of the prodigious 
undertaking is largely dependent 
upon the direct and indirect 
contribution of Western aid. 

Villagization is not a process 
new to Ethiopia. It was first seen 
in the area of Bale between 1979 
and 1982 when peasant farmers 
were forced to tear down their 
homes and rebuild them in vil- 
lages near a main road. The 
regime of Colonel Mengistu Haile- 
Mariara obviously considered it a 
success; it facilitated the provision 
of services and afforded a means 
of controlling people. 

It also had the side-effect of 
making land available which the 
regime was later able to use during 
its resettlement programme, when 
peasants of the northern highlands 
were moved away from areas of 
rebel activity — which they might 
have supported — to the more 
fertile lowlands of the south-west 
But it was not until 1984, when 
the influx of food aid brought an 
unexpected bonus in the form of 
import fees (which were 10 times 
as high as in neighbouring Sudan 
and which soon overtook coffee 
sales as Ethiopia's main source of 
foreign exchange) that the govern- 
ment accelerated its villagization 
programme. The West, its eyes on 
the awful camps, did not notice. 

One area where the programme 
seemed to be pursued particularly 
vigorously was the eastern prov- 
ince of Haraghe — not badly hit by 
drought and still one of Ethiopia’s 
prime food-producing areas. By 
the middle of this year some 
1 50,000 inhabitants of the region 
had abandoned their homes and 
belongings and fled across the 
border into Somalia. Around 
40.000 of the most destitute 
gathered in a refugee camp there at 
Tug Wajale. 

Dr Jason Clay, director of 
research at Cultural Survival, has 


now compiled an account of 
villagization, based on interviews 
with the Tug Wajale refugees. It is 
a damning indictment. 

The official line on villagization 
has been enunciated by Mengistu: 
“The settlement pattern of large 
parts of Ethiopia is scattered. This 
has brought considerable dis- 
advantages. It is only when you 
have peasants together in villages 
that they can benefit from science 
and technology." 

The refugees' account is rather 
different. When an area is selected 
for villagization the usual first step 
is that the community’s religious 
leaders (mainly Muslims) are 
arrested and in some cases pub- 
licly executed. Officials make an 
inventory of all possessions, 
including land, livestock, ploughs, 
farm equipment and household 
goods. Residents are forbidden to 
sell anything: all belongs to the 
state. Some have even been told 
they must no longer drink their 
own cows' milk. 

N ext the inhabitants of 
six or eight villages are 
told to pull down their 
bouses and rebuild 
them in a prescribed 
central area. Mosques are de- 
stroyed and their materials des- 
ecrated by being used to construct 
latrines or government buildings. 
The homes of those who refuse to 
move are burned, sometimes with 
people inside. Whole villages have 
been bombed. A common com- 
plaint of the refugees was that they 
were required to work without pay 
for 12 hours a day, six or seven 
days a week, on the new villages, 
often sleeping without shelter 
while government buildings were 
given priority over homes. Some 
said they were not given enough 
time to plant their crops. 

Others reported that later, in the 
new villages, they were forced to 
work so hard on state coffee forms 
or even on the personal land of 
officials or militiamen that they 
had only two days a week for their 
own land The harvest in this area 
normally yields three times the 
basic subsistence level. The people 
lived on yams, honey and a 
variety of vegetables as well as 


grain. They grew coffee, ground- 
nuts. potatoes, red onions and a 
mild drug called chat as cash 
crops. But now much of the 
harvest was confiscated and a bare 
ration of the most inferior grain 
h sanded oul 

Taxes were said to be even 
higher than before the revolution 
(when the feudal system took 
between 50 and 90 per cent of each 
harvest). They had to pay national 
tax, local tax, drought tax, land- 
use tax, a women’s or youth 
association tax (for political 
education), a literacy tax, and 
contributions in kind to officials. 

Those who received Western 
food aid were often required to 
pay a similar amount in famine 
tax. “It was little more than a 
transfer payment between the 
agencies and the government," 
says Dr Clay, who will be speaking 
at Cambridge anbd Oxford later 
this week. 

The catalogue of abuses re- 
counted by the refugees was 
horrifying. More than halfhad had 
members of their family killed. 
Three-quarters had had relatives 
beaten or imprisoned, and food 
and equipment stolen. Around 80 
per cent spoke of rapes by the 
militia. In some cases the militia 
was “turned loose" on local 
women twice a week, five men to 
every woman. Husbands who 
protested were killed 

Two-thirds reported religious 
persecution: mosques destroyed 
sheikhs killed beaten or impris- 
oned the Koran burned, Koranic 
schools closed even prayer 
forbidden. Most talked in terms of 
repression of their Oromo culture 
by the ruling Amharic minority. 

But Dr Gay reserves some of 
his most cutting criticism for the 
Western agencies wbo he believes 
collaborate, knowingly or naively, 
with the process. “It is quite clear 
now that in areas like this, which 
were not severely hit by drought, 
famine is being created by a 
government policy which is delib- 
erately trying to eliminate self- 
sufficiency and create dependence 
on a centralized system be says. " 

“The agencies are caught in a 
dilemma: should they provide, in 
the short term, humanitarian 


assistance which is creating a 
situation that is going to loll more 
people in the long term? Their 
answer is to stick their heads in the 
sand That is inexcusable." 

He is particularly critical of 
agencies that fund schools is 
which Oromo are forced to learn 
Amharic, or that finance the 
installation of water projects in the 
new villages. “Even after Cam- 
bodia some agencies don't seem to 
have learned that, willing or not, 
they are actors in a political 
tragedy. 

B ob Geldof of Band Aid, 
sensitive to the accusa- 
tion of amateurism, re- 
torts: “These are just 
political aiguments. 
We're not interested in making 
those distinctions. Our job is to 
help people irrespective of poli- 
tics. Of course, m doing that we 
know that sometimes we have to 
make deals with the devil but well 
do that rather than watch people 
die." 

Other agencies are more cir- 
cumspect. “We certainly make 
distinctions," says Paddy Coulter 
of Oxfem. “if the occupants of a 
new village come from an area 
without water then we're happy to 
help instal a project But if they’ve 
come there from hamlets which 
had water, then we refuse. We 
make that quite dear. “Certainly 
we are worried about villagization, 
particularly about the posable 
negative impact it will have on 
production, but at the moment the 
provisional crop estimates look 
better than we had expected 
“The reports we have are very ( 
mixed Some of the new villages j 
are good others not far away are j 
bad It seems to depend on the , 
sensitivity and skill of the officials , 
who implement the policy." Is 
Cultural Survival, he wonders, 
generalizing from a single case? 

“Even if only half of what we 
have found is true, it is still very 
disturbing,” Jason Clay replies. 
“So is the feet that no-one else 
seems prepared to do any research 
or to face up to the question of 
how long we're prepared to feed 
Ethiopians whom their own gov- 
ernment is willing to starve." 


The closing words of John Braine 


Hampstead was John Braine's 
home for about four years before 
he died. He was rather surprised 
himself by how much he liked it, 
approving of everything that in 
the heyday of the 1950s would 
have driven him near apoplectic — 
the coffee bars, the air of plenty, 
the sight of men in the street in the 
middle of the working day. 

Just another so-called Angry 
Y’oung Man softened up by money 
who sold out to the Establish- 
ment? Partially, yes: Braine 
frankly admitted to a preference 
for comfortable living over the 
alternative. But it was a bit less 
obvious than thaL 

Braine. though the most kind 
and charming company you could 
wish for. still displayed his anger, 
sometimes flying it like a flag. Its 
targe L however, had shifted. A 

little of this he explained to me 
one evening a year or so ago in his 
tiny two-room flat in New End. 1 
went in my capacity of bookseller. 
He was thinning oul his collection: 
authors often do. more so than 
anyone else. 

1 rang the doorbell four or six 


Joseph Connolly on 


times, checked the address, and 
rang it again. The shuffle of shoes 
was dimly beard, and the door 
opened a crack, the hall seeming 
darker than the night outside. He 
had sunk a few, it was dear, and 
seemed not to recognize me. but 
beckoned me in anyway. The 
room could have been no more 
than 1 1 ft square and quite devoid 
of al! colour, almost as if every- 
thing had been camouflaged into a 
shadow tinged with fovau and 
then covered in a fine ash. 

Ash. actually, was everywhere, 
as were books, papers, cups, 
papers, papers, and bottles. His 
hand was unsteady as he poured 
another drink, and his dear and 
pleading blue-grey eyes were look- 
ing somewhere else entirely. By his 
side was the work in progress 
( Those Golden Days — his eulogy 
of Hampstead) and the writing 
was precisely aligned, with no 
deletions for pages on end. I 
declined a mug of vodka and LilL 
John Braine began to talk, the 
voice near a parody of the gravelly 


writer who was read 


“trouble oop at t' mill” Yorkshire- 
man of Room at ike Top. 

“Jaw/’ he addressed me (as in 
“Lumpton”). “the trouble with 
everything is this." Pause. “The 
establishment is established. 
That's all righL has to be. It’s the 
bastards who want to change that 
who are wrong now because they 
don't want to change it into 
anything — just to knock it down 
and kick around the bits. 

"Writing. That’s all it’s all 
abouL Just get it said. Never mind 
about messages — just tell the 
story, give the reader something to 
read and leave the bloody 
establishment alone. It’s nothing 
to do with anyone anyway. We 
don’t really know even what it is." 
He then got up and left the room. 
Ten minutes later he returned, 
without a word- 

The Lilt had run out. but the 
vodka was poured. “J am read." 
he suddenly announced — not. I 
think, through arrogance, for his 
face spread wide open with plea- 
sure at the thought of all those 


readers who liked what he did 
(library borrowers, mainly — . 
Braine was one of only 20 British 
who received the maximum 
£5.000 Public Lending Right share 
annually). He used to keep all his 
fan letters, but then he lost them. 

John Braine became a familiar 
sight in the Hampstead streets 
(latterly on a stick), loving the 
bookshops, the breadshops. the 
coffee bars — but not the pubs. He 
admired John O’Hara over al! 
writers; he had respect for Private 
Eve and A. N. Wilson. 

“Old Kingers is doing awfully 
well lately.” he said a few months 
ago. The voice mocked Amis's 
public-school nickname, but held 
nothing but affection for his fellow 
1 950s novelists. "1 must” he said, 
“ring him sometime." 

The last I heard from John 
Braine was about a month ago. 
“Jaw," he said, “we must meet up 
for a drink. No rush. There’s 
plenty of time.” And then, “Oh 
my God, that’s the trouble " 

E reread Room at the Top this 
morning. 1 only now realize that 
these are its closing words.

Ronald Butt 


Turning of the 


screw in Avon 


lay 

people of Bristol. The details I 
gave last week of Brent Council's 
plans for planting its race equality 
agents in its schools, and its 
refusal to reinstate Miss Mc- 
Goldrick as head teacher after she 
had been acquitted in court of 
racism, perhaps made some read- 
ers wonder what happened to 
Jonathan Saveiy, the Bristol 
teacher accused of rad sin and 
officially found not guilty. 

For several months since his 
“acquittal” he has been in a kind 
of professional limbo, continuing 
to teach English to ethnic minority 
children at the school to which he 
has been attached, but forbidden 
to enter the Avon multicultural 
education centre which employs 
him, and where militant col- 
leagues originally brought the 
charge of racism against hint Now 
Saveiy has bees dealt another 
blow. On the last day before the 
half-term last week be was tok) by 
the acting head of his school that 
his services were no longer re- 
quired there, and that although he 
could stay for the rest .of that day 
(there is obviously mud) natural 
courtesy in Bristol) he should not 
return after half-tenn. 

Saveiy, whose case was dis- 
cussed in this column on Maid) 
13 and May 1,-is a teacher paid by 
the Avon education authority’s 
multicultural education centre 
(MEC) which, like the Brent 
programme, is funded by the 
Home Office under Section 1 1 of 
the Local Government Act, 1966. 
Sa very holds that the jab for which 
he was appointed is to teach 
English to children of Common- 
wealth origin handicapped by the 
lack of iL But the Avon MEC is 
dominated by a militant group 
which thinks that teaching English 
is colonialism. It wants the money 
to be spent rather in campaigning 
against the inequity of white 
society, censoring the reading 
matter used in schools, attacking 
the police for racism and switch- 
ing resources from teaching Eng- 
lish to the promotion of minority 
language and cultures. 

For writing about all this, 
Savery was accused of racism, but 
was acquitted by a disciplinary 
panel set up by the Avon educa- 
tion authority. But the panel 
added a rider that “given the 
circumstances at the MEC" 
(which means, given its domina- 
tion by the hard left) his opinions 
made it “difficult for him to 
remain a member of the staff there 
at this tune". Since then, he 
continued to teach at Menydown 
boys' school until he was suddenly 
“fired” from his attachment there 
last week, but he has not been 
allowed back at the MEC because 
the militan ts threatened to walk 
out if he appeared. Nor is he given 
any help by the centre or allowed 
to join its discussions, or its in- 
service training. Though found 
innocent of racism, he is bong 
punished for being charged with n. 

Tbe Avon education authority 
would like to get rid of him 
altogether, since it regards him as 


having “provoked" the trouble by 
speaking his mind. 

1 1 it wrote to him saying that ms 
intention to attend ln-sennce 
group sessions at the MEC “would 
not best serve your own pro- 
fessional interests or the interests 
of the MEC and other educational 
establishments with which you are 
already, or might be in the future, 
associated”. Tufa letter, on behalf 
of the education director, Pete r 
Coleman, expressed “very great 
concern” at Savery's suggestion 
that he should attend an in-service 
training session ai the centre, and 
him urgently to confirm that 
he would not do so. 

He was advised by the 
education authority not to write 
another article for the Salisbury 
. Review (in other words, though he 
may be attacked be must not 
defend himself) and was refused 
leave to accept an invitation to 
speak on free speech at -a fringe 
meeting of the Conservative con- 
ference, even though half that day 
was not teaching time because he 
was not allowed to go to the centre - 
for the no rmal in-service session. 

He was also refused leave -to 
speak to Bristol University stu- 
dents, but did so in his lunch hour 
last week — which at least raises 
the question whether the publicity 
arising from this had anything to 
do with the decision to end his 
atta chment to Menydown schooL 

The Avon education authority 
bends to the militants who domi- 
nate the MEC because it accepts 
Thei r claim that they must heed the - 
“leaden" of the small black 
radical groups they consult, one of 
whom recently publicly wished a 
heart attack on a senior police- 
man. Y let these are groups which 
do not truly represent the majority 
of the black community. 

Earlier this year, the Home 
Office decided that some of the 
Avon MEC posts did not warrant 
Section 11 funding because they 
were not concerned with English 
teaching , and asked Ay on for 
details of work at the centre, and 
time spent on it. Since then, Avon 
has been trying to repackage its 
anti-racist multicultnratism, but 
the Home Office is still not 
satisfied and the Education 
Department is sending two of Her 
Majesty’s inspectors to find out 
what is going on. Ministers have 
told me that teaching English is a 
sine qua non for this kind of 
funding. Ifthisisso, Icansu^zst 
how Avon, Kent and many other 
local authorities who infringe this 
criterion should be dealt with. 

The government should scrap 
all Section 1 1 spending. It should 
replace this with a pool of specially 
qualified teachers of En glish as a 
second language, who are licensed 
by the Department of Education. 
Heads of schools who have need 
of them for their pupils should 
then be able to call on these 
teachers. This would help many 
children towards a better chance 
in life, and also do something to 
inhibit the hard-left cells which are 
now malignantly exploiting racial 
tenaons in our schools. : . .

Dr Oliver goes 
round the twist 




As many of my readers seem 
singularly ignorant of sex, politics, 
the Big Bang, gay rights and gay 
lefts, 1 have asked Moreover 
Publications to prepare a series of 
short booklets which explain these 
things in easy language with lots of 
drawings. Here are the first titles 
on our list:

just an Asian trouble-maker, says : 
Barney- Unfortunately, he is over- 
heard and kicked out of Brent

Roger is a Tory MP, by Dr Oliver 
Gastrode. Only a small percentage 
of the population suffers from the 
urge to be a Tory MP, a condition 
which can lead to obsessions with 
sex and race and to the desire to 
tyrannize everyone else. Dr 
Gastrode explains how, in a mild 
form, the condition is not anti- 
social by idling the story of Roger. 

Roger runs an old femfly firm 
making police riot equipment and 
firearms, but he is also a Tory MP. 
One day he fells In love with the 
BBC and develops a desire to 
appear on ft all the time. At the 
same time he conceives a haired 
for the BBC 

There is a happy ending, when 
Roger finally gets offered a show, 
of his own on BBC radio ami is 
able to give up being a Tory MP. 
There are some amusing mo- 
ments, as with the visit of the . 
Chilean party to the armaments 
factory. Dr Gastrode makes the 
point forcefully enough that being 
a Tory MP may be a hopeless 
condition, but it is not without its 
humorous side. 

Barney is a Brent Councillor by Dr 
(River Gastrode. Only a small 
percentage of the population suf- 
fers from the urge to be a Brent 
councillor, a condition which can 
lead to obsessions with sex and 
race, and to the desire to tyrannize 
everyone else. 

Dr Gastrode tries to help us 
understand this rare and rather 
unsightly pathological state by 
telling the story of-' Barney, 
whosets out one day to stop people ' 
using all expressions with the 
word “blade” in them, because 
they are racist. Well, says his 
friend Raji. what about phrases in 
which the word “black" has a nice 
meaning, as in “in the blade" or 
“The Blade Prince"? And isn’t a 
black belt the highest thing in 
judo, and isn't the Mack ball the 

most valuable in snooker? ' 

Well, says Barney, we can keep 
expressions in which “Mack" has a 
positive connotation. . But this is

Gastrode. Dr Gastrode deals with ” 
that powerful instinct we feel in ” 

our teens -the urge to get together'' 

with other people of the same age -■ o 
and change the world completely. 
This is nothing to be asham^ 0 £ 
says Dr Gastrode. It is quite a ” 
natural instinct and will not 
you blind. Well, only politically 
blind. However, points out Dr 
Gastrode, the results of playing . - 
politics are always disastrous and - 
he recommends some other hob- r 
bies instead.

become victims- The un- 
certainty stems from the fact 
that we have only five years 
experience of treating AIDS. 
What is certain is that 100 per 
cent of victims die. 

AIDS can therefore take 
root in a country almost 
without people noticing. 
15,000 people have died of 
AIDS in the United States 
over the last five years, but the 
best estimates are that between 
1-5 million and 3 million 
Americans are currently AIDS 
carriers and that 150,000 of 
them will die in the next five 
years. In Britain, by compari- 
son, only 512 known victims 
of AIDS have been diagnosed 
of whom 250 have died. Of 
these only 16 have been 
heterosexual, seven women 
and nine men. But the es- 
timate for AIDs carriers is high 
at 30,000, and projections 
suggest that 450 people will he 
dying each month in five years 
time. What makes this more' 
disturbing is that, in compari- 
son with America, there is still 
considerable public ignorance 
about the disease. 

Britain is thus at a crucial 
point AIDS has arrived, in 
Britain. It has established itself 
firmly in the high-risk groups 
— some doctors estimate, for 
instance, that 30 per cent of 
male homosexuals in London 
are carriers. But it has not 
taken firm root among hetero- 
sexuals and government ac- 
tion here could be effective. 

But what sort of action? 
Ultimately, an AIDS cure 
must be found. The 
Government’s allocation of £1 
million for medical research 


into AIDS, pitifully small in 
comparison with the Ameri- 
can figure of $340 million, 
must be sharply increased. 
Meanwhile, however, a cam- 
paign of prevention and public 
health information could at 
least restrict the spread of the 
disease. 

Until now, the government 
campaign has beat timid. It 
has, first, allocated only £2.5 
million to anti-AIDS advertis- 
ing which, according to a 
survey m the British Medical 
Journal, has harj i almost no 
effect on public knowledge of 
the disease. More aggressive 
advertising, combining the im- 
pact of television with the 
tidier information of the 
printed word, is plainly re- 
quired. 

It has been assumed, sec- 
ondly, that in a permissive age 
it is futile to recommend either 
chastity or monogamy, which 
are in fed the best safeguards 
against AIDS. The moral 
emphasis of the government 9 s 
campaign has been to outline 
methods of “safe sex.” This is 
unduly pessimistic. 

Permissiveness was, at the 
very least, made more feasible 
by methods of contraception 
which removed a very obvious 
risk from sexual activity. 
AIDS introduces a much 
worse risk and one which 
Bright well persuade people to 
avoid even the limited risks of 
safe sex Health education 
.should really not shrink from 
pointing out that traditional 
sexual morality is the best way 
of avoiding a horrible death. 
There are worse things than 
looking old-fashioned.

The changes follow recom- 
mendations of the Public Ac- 
counts Committee, headed by 
the former Labour Treasury 
minister, Mr Robert Sheldon. 
In its report on the Unemploy- 
ment Benefit Service in July 
last year, the Committee said 
that it was concerned that the 
formal test of availability for 
work was too weak and wel- 
comed the Government’s de- 
cision to consider whether it 
was practicable to introduce 
tests that were more effective, 
without becoming oppressive. 

The upshot is the new 
twelve part questionnaire now 
being introduced for new 
claimants. Its purpose is 
straightforward: to weed out 
those who are looking for 
unemployment benefit rather 
than, work and to transfer 
others such as the chronically 
sick to other forms of benefit. 
That in itself is barely 
controversial. The only plau- 
sible objection — now es- 
poused by Mr Sheldon — is 
that the questionnaire is so 
oppressive as to disqualify 


mg 


them into not claiming benefit 

Some of the questions, in 
combination, could certainly 
sound intimidatory. Married 
women with children, for 
example, might find them- 
selves giving the impression 
that they were not truly avail- 
able for work if they could not 
drop everything and take a job 
that day, travel outside their 
local town for work, work 
unsocial hours or make instant 
arrangements for care of chil- 
dren or dependent relatives. 

Whether the questionnaires 
are fair depends on how 
answers are interpreted. There 
is plenty of casebook practice 
to vary tests of availability 
according to personal circum- 
stance and local availability of 
jobs and transport If humane 
common sense is applied, 
along with benefit officers' 
experience of differentiating 
the great majority of genuine 
cases from others, there need 
be no oppression. 

But Lord Young and his 
Department should make it 
clear, not just in Parliament 
but by information to the 
public, that the object of the 
exercise is to apply availability 
tests better. It should not be to 
confine entitlement to un- 
employment benefit to some 
narrower group — for instance 
by trying to pretend that 
women with ordinary family 
commitments are not truly in 
the labour market. 

Pilot surveys of the effects of 
the change suggest that some 
five per cent of the 400,000 
coming onto the benefit rolls 


each month would be removed 
by more rigorous application 
of the test of availability. If 
that proved the case — and it 
should be carefiilly monitored 
— as many as 200,000 could be 
removed from the benefit roles 
in a year. 

: So the changes should cut 
the: monthly unemployment 
figures, perhaps, as the 
Opposition has. charged, edg- 
ing them below three million 
before the election. Suspicions 
that the Government is fid- 
dling the figures are under- 
standable. This is the eighteen 
change of definition or prac- 
tice since - 1979, all of which 
have reduced the figure or had 
no discernible net effect. 

Large and growing groups, 
such as those seeking part-time 
work or previously self-em- 
ployed, are already excluded. 
This underlines the feet that 
.unemployment as announced 
each month is a strictly statis- 
tical concept, however much 
the dailypolitical argument 
rests upon it 

The poverty and despair 


that lie behind the figures are, 
however, reaL Specific govern- 
ment measures such as the 
Youth Training Scheme or 
schemes for the long-term 
unemployed, which reduce the 
figures, do so by genuinely 
tackling the problems. But the 
Government cannot make any 
c laims about its efforts on 
behalf of the unemployed that 
arise only from statistical 
changes. Weeding out a few 
shirkers does not truly alter the 
still unsatisfactory trend.

. ’ u against its raids. So does 
’ kV , 3 Britain, whose army naming 
*< ' team in Zimbabwe has already 
i v put some 60 members of the 
.'Mozambique forces through a 
i'" 1 2-week special course — and 
y . might soon be asked to take on 
' ' V " another batch. Two Mozam- 
bique officer cadets have been 


at the Royal Military Academy 
Sandhurst, reflecting British 
policies in Southern Africa. 

Mugabe and his Ministers 
know that for the MNR to take 
on Zimbabwe, with its 41,000- 
strong army and (admittedly 
limit«l) air force, is another 
matter. Their forces may not 
be what they were and past 
stories of harshness and in- 
discipline in Matabeleland, 
have been disturbing. The 
right-wing rebels who have 
successfully laid waste large 
tracts of Mozambique in the 
1 1 years since independence, 
claim to have 20,000 men 
under arms and could no 
doubt strike successfully at 
soft targets over the Zimbabwe 
border, embarrassing Robert 
Mugabe and his generals. 

But they have plenty on 
their hands as it is if they are to 
develop a debilitating insur- 
gency campaign in Mozam- 
bique into a successful 
counter-revolution. Tempting 
though it may be to spoil Mr 
Mugabe’s sleep, they must at 
some stage consider where 
their priorities lie. * 

A similar task awaits Pre- 
toria. If the MNR continues to 
cripple Mozambique and en- 
sure that the road and railway 
to Beira remain at best un- 
certain corridors for traffic to 
and from the frontline states. 
South Africa will no doubt be 


> content to let well alone. But if 
the rebels should suddenly 
seem to be in right of either 
victory or defeat. President 
Botha will face pre ss ure from 
his hawkish military to step up 
support for them. 

There are a number of 
reasons why he would prob- 
ably wish to decline such an 
option, finance being only the 
least compelling. Despite his 
implacable opposition to Pre- 
toria and the fierceness of his 
rhetoric, Robert Mugabe, like 
the late Samora Machel, 
understands the limits of his 
power. While it is in South 
Africa’sinterests to tie Mugabe 
down — by whatever means 
available — it would be less 
wise to force him into more 
open hostility 

This derision could be taken 
out of Pretoria's hands if 
Zimbabwe and the other front- 
line stales resolve to throw 
more weight behind the 
Mozambique army as it strug- 
gles to resume some kind of 
grip on the country. But it is 
hard to see them doing much 
more than stem the MNR’s 
advance — and restore some 
sort of safety to the trade 
routes through the country. Jn 
the present crisis of stability in 
Southern Africa, the question 
of who is declaring war upon 
whom is almost an irrele- 
vance. ^ 


LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 


Hatred as tool of 
management 


Extra help in marriage guidance 


From the Reverend Jim Gould 
Sir. The letter of Mr Blackbume. 
of Haringey Council (October 24) 
points uq something which has 
been causing Christians increasing 
concern - the use of hatred as a 
tool of management and of poli- 
tics in particular. Nothing new, of 
course, but the very overtness of 
this is notable esponally in local 
authorities which claim to be 
motivated fay a caring attitude. 

If 1 may coin a phrase: it is 
possible to be so open minded that 
one's brains drop out. 1 suggest 
that this is banning to happen to 
such as Brent and Haringey. 
There, under the guise ofbeing feir 
to racial and political minorities, 
destructive forces are being un- 
leashed which in the end will 
encourage the mob to take over 
and make the boroughs ungovern- 
able. 

If national and regional leaders 
use their power to legitimise 
hatred and witch hunts as accept- 
able tools, that mob rale and the 
vigilante wfll inevitably follow — 
the governed taking their cue from 
the govemois. 

That will pve another opportu- 
nity, incidentally, to pontificate 
about police brutality as the forces 
of law again attempt to tidy up 
someone else’s mess. 

At the same time as all this is 
happening the traditional insights 
of the nation are being rubbished. 
They were flawed, certainly, the 
Chinch and Christian morality 
have nothing much to be proud of. 
But I fear that in their sponsorship 
of the cult of hatred some of our 
London boroughs may succeed in 
breaking down our society where 
Mosley and his followers oiled SO 


years ago. 

Is this the road down which our 


leaders would take us? 
Yours faithfully,

A bishop’s choice 

From the Reverend Dr R. M. Gill 
Sir, Surely Sir Frank Pearson’s 
claim (October 21) that the Bishop 
of Kingston should be allowed “no 
latitude in the application or 
observance of accepted practice 
and law” cannot be accepted by a 
Christian. 

It was Bonhoeffer who argued 
so courageously (and finally with 
his life) that the Christian must 
always follow first the call of 
Christ before any laws of man. 
Naturally this call must be tested 
carefully (especially by a bishop, 
who has indeed “an admin- 
istrative and quasi-judicial 
function”), but once received it is 
to be obeyed without legal impedi- 
ment. 

Writing as an Anglican priest 
with 14 years’ experience of 
teaching both men and women 
preparing for ordination, I am 
convinced that members of both 
sexes have indeed been called by 
Christ. It would be unthinkable 
for me to put the demands of law 
(let alone those of 
“accepted . , . practice") before 
those of this call. To do so would 
be utterly to defy the notion of 
vocation expounded by Paul, 
Augustine, Aquinas, Luther, and a 
host of lesser theologians. 

If the Bishop of Kingston, too, 
has become convinced of this call 
he cannot in good conscience bow 
to the temporary demands of 
synodical legalism. 

Yours sincerely, 

ROBIN GILL, Associate Dean, 
Faculty of Divinity,

From Miss Mercia E. Cato 
Sr, I was interested to hear about 
the latest recommendations for 
more money to be put into the 
training of marriage-guidance 
counsellors (report, October 22). 

As a divorce (inter alia) solicitor 
for 30 years. I heartily agree with 
the suggestion, but would add my 
-own recommendations. Could 
there not be a two-tier system of 
counseflois? The training for a 
counsellor takes two years and it is 
a voluntary service. The waiting 
list for those seeking advice is long 
and it can take weeks before an 
appointment is made. 

I believe that certain suitably 
chosen people would make ad- 
mirable second-tier counsellors 
with less extensive training. Quite 
often an immediate “shoulder to 
cry upon ” would suffice. Good 
commonsense advice could be 
given by people with some time to 
listen and perhaps a greater mar- 
ital crisis prevented. 

Previously their role would 
have been taken by the vicar or 
doctor or lawyer in a community, 
all of whom are now too busy to 
give so much time. If these people 
had been married for a long time 
or for a second time they would 
have plenty of experience to draw 
upon. 

I recently recommended a 
friend to the council, but she was 
dismayed to discover the lengthy 
.training involved with residential 
courses, including those at week- 
ends. As she said, her own 30-year- 


old marriage might have been in 
jeopardy ifshe had taken so much 
time away from the matrimonial 
home and. looking after the “lord 
and master”! 

Yours sincerely.

From Dr D.L Beales 
Sir, As a general practitioner 
increasingly seeing the effects of 
relationship difficulties within 
marriage, 1 am not surprised by 
the sudden sutge in demand for 
marriage guidance following pub- 
licity in EastEnders. 

It would make additional sense 
if genera] practitioners were all- 
owed to work with counsellors 
within their practices. Earlier 
involvement of coupselling ser- 
vices before breakdown or the 
need for expensive conciliation 
processes must be cost-effective. 

When will general practitioners 
be allowed to react ap propr ia tely 
to problems presenting in their 
practice and employ trained coun- 
sellors eligible for 70 per cent 
reimbursement of salary? 

Yours sincerely,

University earnings 

From the Vice-Chancellor of Sal* 
ford University 

Sir, In your leader of September 6 
you took me, rightly, to task for 
not giving my “vice-chancellorial 
colleagues more credit for the shift 
in attitude (in die universities) 
that has taken place, to the 
welcome now given on campuses 
to moneymakers”. But my sins of 
omission are as nothing to those 
committed by the Secretary of 
State for Education ^.whom you . 
quote (October 23) as saying that 
foe universities are Still “pretty - 
grudging” in the welcome we give 
to the real world and accused us of 
“living in ivory towers”. This 
when university earnings from 
research contracts for industry 
and commerce are rising by nearly 
SO per cent a year. 

This was the year in which 43 
per cent of this university’s in- 
come derived from sources other 
than the University Grants 
Committee; in which we were 
delighted to announce that our 
industrial friends and collabo- 
rators constituted a majority on 
both the board of management 
and the programme advisory 
committee of our new Informa- 
tion Technology Institute and in 
which this university spent 
£900,000 of its non-Univentity 
Grants Committee income on its 
teaching activities, thus going 
some way to protect its students 
from the damage successive Gov- 
ernment cuts would otherwise 
have inflicted on the quality of our 
degree programmes. 

The Secretary of State should 
have the grace to acknowledge 
these facts. He might also reflect 
that ivory towers can come 'in 
bureaucratic as well as academic 
models. 

Yours faithfully, 

JOHN ASHWORTH.

Red Cross troubles 

From Colonel Professor G. I. A. D. 
Draper 

Sir, The events which have occ- 
urred in Geneva at the inter- 
national conference of the 
International Red Cross (report, 
October 27) are completely alien 
to the principles of the Red Cross, 
as well as beings manifest breach 
of the statutes which govern the 
International Red Cross. 

Such activities reflect little 
credit on those states which, under 
the orchestration of Kenya, se- 
cured the expulsion of the Gov- 
ernment delegation of South 
Africa from the conference in a 
manner which was devoid of 
regularity and harmony with the 
fundamental Red Cross principles 
solemnly proclaimed at the open- 
ing of each international con- 
ference. 

By article 1(2) of the statutes 
“The International Conf- 
ference . . . shall be composed of 
delegations of . . . National Red 
Cross Societies . of the States' 
parties to the Geneva Conven- 
tions' (1864, 1906, 1929; or 
1949). ; ” • ; • 

Such delegations are present at 
the conference now in progress in 
Geneva as of right South Africa, is 
a party to the four Geneva 
Conventions of 1949. 

By article 2 of the statutes tire 
conference has “power to take 
decisions within the limits of the 
present statutes . . ” That power 
does not include the power of the 
conference to expel a delegation 
present as of' right under article 1. 


What Kenya and the associated 
states have done is to use the 
statutes of the International Red 
Cross to be present and vote, and 
to secure the adoption of a vote 
expelling South Africa, but not its 
national Red Cross society, from 
the conference, thereby achieving 
a nullity, contempt of the statutes, 
and causing no little harm to the 
International Red Gross, a body 
whose value in the world is 
without price. 

That is not clever, any more 
than is the ratal iatoty action by the 
South African Foreign Minister in 
seeking to expel the delegates of 
the international Committee of 
tire Red Cross from South Africa 
and Namibia, when that excellent 
body is completely blameless in 
the matter.

From Mr C. C. Tremlen 
Sir, How desperately sad that it is 
now the turn of the Red Gross to 
suffer the humiliation of African 
misuse. 

How many of us will reluctantly 
cease to contribute to an 
organisation that has allowed itself 
to forsake its greatest virtue and 
turn political? 

Yours very truly.

Control of Angola 

From Mr Fred Bridgland 
Sir. Your correspondent, Mr 
David L Lee (October 24) is 
democratically entitled to accuse 
you of “angularly misleading 
journalism” in relation to events 
in Angola. However, his expertise 
on that country has to be ques- 
tioned when he tries to persuade 
your readership that Jonas 
SavimbTs Unita movement de- 
rives its supporrfrom the Ovambo 
people. 

Anyone acquainted with that 
area of tire world would know that 
tire Ovambo people are mainly 
identified with the Swapo move- 
ment, which is trying to liberate 
Namibia, Angola’s neighbour. Mr 
Savimbi is a member of the 
Gvimbundu, Angola’s largest 
tribe, although members of his 
central committee come from 
every major tribe in Angola. 

To suggest that the core of Mr 
Savimbi’s support comes from the 
Ovambo is rather like trying to 
persuade us that Mr Charles 
Haughey depends on the votes of 
the Democratic Ulster Unionist 


Party for his power, or that Mrs 
Thatcher is widely popular on 
Clydeside. 

It is perhaps also worth 
mentioning, since Mr Lee did not, 
that Swapo and Unita are fighting 
for the same objectives. Swapo 
wants the withdrawal of foreign 
troops (South African) from Na- 
mibia and the bolding of demo- 
cratic, multi-party . elections, as- 
promised by the United Nations. 
Unita is fighting for the with- 
drawal of foreign troops (Cuban, 
East German and Soviet) from 
Angola and the bolding of demo- 
cratic, multi-party elections, as 
promised by the Alvor accord of 
January, 1975, signed by Angola’s 
former Portuguese colonial rulers 
and three liberation movements. 

The odd thing is that many 
Western democrats seem to be- 
lieve that black Angolans are less 
worthy of the right to vote than 
Mack Namibians. Why this 
discrimination? 

Yours sincerely,

Planning controls 

From Mr W. P. Winston 
Sir, In bis articles on planning 
controls (October 13, 14, 15) Hugh 
Clayton raised the issue of the 
malaise of public planning in- 
quiries. To understand it, it is 
necessary to refer to the planning 
Acts. 

The Acts provide for the local 
planning authority and . the sec- 
retary of state to adopt a develop- 
ment {flan which is regarded as the 
established order for develop- 
ment. The planning . permission 


Nuclear safety 

From Mr J. H. Per hy bridge 
Sir. In your issue of October 14 Mr 
Brian Parker asked whether the 
risk of a large accident at a UK 
reactor is so small that it can be 
discounted. Mr John Baker, Cor- 
porate Managing Director of the 
CEGB replied (October 22) and 
went as near as possible to giving 
complete assurance on the point. 

Why, then, do all insurance 
companies, as far as I know, 
exclude liability from nudear 
accidents or any form of damage 
from radiation in their, com- 
prehensive policies covering prop- 
erty. and m feet decline to give 
cover in this respect? There is no 
such exclusion for damage arising 
from accidents at coaL oil or 
hydraulic installations. 

Yours faithfully.

appeal inquiry is then treated as 
part of the procedure for control- 
ling a development regarded as 
outside the development plan. 
The result is the appellant is 
invariably seen, at lean by some, 
as seeking to upset the established 
order, as rocking the boat. 

In reality the inquiry arises 
because the appellant's develop- 
ment was not included in the 
development plan. The teal pur- 
pose of the inquiry is to investigate 
whether the development plan 
should be altered to include the 
appellant's project 

The common reason why even 
laige projects are omitted from 
development plans is their timing. 
The Brent Cross Shopping Centre 
(London) was omitted and came 
in with the growth in trading and 
car ownership. Similarly the New 
Covent Garden Market came in as 
railway land became available 
through rationalisation and the 
withdrawal of steam locomotives. 
The oil production industry has 
had to make its way mainly 
outside development plans be- 
cause of the pace of its develop- 
ment 

To cure the malaise of pfenning 
inquiries the law needs amending 
to give siatutoty recognition to the 
pan initiators in society have long 
been playing in updating develop- 
ment plans.

OCTOBER 30 1929 


“Black Tuesday” was the worst 
day of a bad week on the New 
York Stock Exchange which had 
started on October 23. In spite of 
authoritative statements the 
Txvoious week showing that 
fundamentally business was 
unusually strong and 
recommending the purchase of 
good securities the public were not 
reassured and liquidation 

continued. 


WALL STREET 
RECORD 


NEARLY 17,000,000 
. SHARES SOLD 


FURTHER FALL IN 
PRICES 


A SHORT-LIVED 
RALLY 


(From Our Own Correspondent) 
NEW YORK, Oct. 29 

There has never been such a day 
of l i quida t ion on the stock markets 
as this. For the third time in less 
than a week stocks, good, bad, and 
indifferent, were thrown upon the 
market in huge blocks for what 
they would bring. Prices broke far 
below the previous low leveb of the 
year, wiping out all the gains of 
more than 12 months ana estab- 
lishing almost incredibly low new 
records. 

Up to 2 o’clock, in four hours of 
trading, nearly 14 million shares 
had been Bold, or more than in the 
whole five hours of last Thursday, 
when trading was completely de- 
moralized By the time the market 
dosed at 3 o'clock, the volume was 
close to 17 million shares, with the 
recording ticker more than 
minutes behind the tra n s act ions 
on the floor of the New York Stock 
Exchange. On the Kerb Market at 
the dose the ticker was 133 
minutes behind trading. The total 
sales there readied a new high total 
of 7, 096^00 shares. 

Just before the dose of the 
market on the “big board”, the 
prices of several leading stocks 
made what would have been Im- 
pressive rallies in any ordinary 
market, but in this market they 
seemed comparative ly small. It was 
almost the only withstanding of 
the tide that occurred throughout 
the day. For all this rafly United 
States Steel ended 12 points down 
on the day, American Can 16 
points, American Telephone and 
Telegraph 28 points, Westinghouse 
Electric 19 points, General Electric 
30 points, American and Foreign 
Power 22Vt points. Sears, Roebuck 
1614 points, and Johns- Manville 17 
points down, and there was a long 
list of similar losses in other recent 
market favourites. And these losses 
were all on the top of the already 
great looses sustained yesterday 
and last Thursday. . . 

When the market on the Stock 
Exchange dosed last night, with 
most stocks at their lo wes t levels of 
the session, further liquidation waa 
expected today, but m nothing likej 
the volume that appeared. But the 
burst began immediately at the 
opening of the Exchange-Blocks of j 
from 20.000 to 170,000 shares were 
thrown into the market, and prices, 
“flashed” at short intervals by 
telephone from the floor of the 
exchange, were far lower than 
those swearing on the tape-. 

“A leading industrialist,’’ his 
identity but thinly disguised under 
that designation, was interviewed 
by reporters as he was leaving the 
Morgan offices. There was no 
possibility, he said, that the corpo- 
rations would do what had been 
feared — namely, withdraw funds 
from the. call money market to 
meet their month-end require- 
ments. His declaration, however, 
was unfortunately juxtaposed with 
an official statement that the 
Federal Reserve Board was putting 
credit into the market which would 
take the place of heavy withdraw- 
als of funds by the corporations. 
Senator Brookhart, of Iowa, did 
nothing to calm the excitement by 
a prediction that, if the stock 
market decline continued, bank 
failures throughout the United 
States might be looked for. 

This morning Controller Berry, 
of New York, announced that the 
sale of $ 60 , 000,000 (£12400,000) 
City bonds schedule d for tomorrow 
had been temporarily postponed 
because, “owing to the moat de- 
moralized conditions of trading 
which the Stock Exchange has ever 
seen, the principal banking houses 
and financial institutions which 
had formed syndicates to put in 
bids have suggested to me that it 
would be a patriotic move, and in 
the best interest of the country as a 
whole, to aid the effort now bed 
made by the large banki 
institutions’* to stabilize the finan- 
cial situation. . . 

One of the incidents of the day 
was the fetal fell from one of the 
upper storeys of an apartment 
bouse btnldmg in which he lived, of) 
the president of a company whose 
stock a few months ago sold at 113, 
and yesterday sold at 4. 


Catting edge 

From Sir John Elliot 
Sir, In the excellent description by 
Guy Topham of revolutionary 
Paris (Travel. October 25) there is 
one error. He refers to “the rusty 
blade of the guillotine hanging on 

.k. Maria- 


Antoinette’s cell. 

What hangs there is the actual 
bell, used to tell the wardens that 
the tumbrils had arrived in the 
courtyard to take the day’s con- 
demned to the guillotine, then in 
the Place Louis XIV (now Con- 
corde). 

There are a number of blades 
still in existence — one was. for 
years, in Madame Tussaud’s in 
London. .Another is (or was) in the 
Musee Grfcvin. 

Your obedient servant.

Astronomy 


The night sky in November 


By Our Astronomy 
Correspondent 
Mercury will be at inferior 
conjunction on the 13th and at 


greatest cnonung^eloogatiqn (20 


deg) on The 30th. when it will 
rise two hours before the Sun 
and brighten day by day. 

Venus will be at inferior 
conjunction on tbe 5th; it wiU 
then become a morning star 
risiiK two boms or more before 
the Sun towards the end of tbe 
month. Its magnitude wiU be - 
4.6. Moon near ii on the 29th. 

Mars will retain its setting 
time of 21h40m while moving 
into Aquarius. Moon not far 
away on the 8th. 

Jupiter is the brightest object 
(other than the Moon, of course) 
in the southern sky, as neither 
Foma! haul nor the approac h i n g 
Mars are serious competitors. 
Moon near it on the 10th. 

Saturn, though not actually 
set, is not readily observable. 

Uranus is also lost in the 
western twilight, and the same 
can be said of Neptune, al- 
though it sets later than the 
other two. 

The Moon: new, 2d06h; first 
quarter. 8d21h:hiD, I6d02h;last 
quarter, 24dl7h- 

AlgoL approximate times of 
evening minima are 10d22‘£h 
and I3dl9%h- 

The eclipse of the Moon 
(October 17) passed with the 
usual result in my area; after a 
dear sunny day the sky was 
heavily overcast by the tune tbe 
event was due. It has been 
mentioned in these notes before 
that eclipses come in fortnightly 
pairs, solar and lunar, at about 
six months’ intervals. Next year 
the two lunar ones are penum- 
bra!, meaning that the Moon 
does not enter the dark shadow 
(umbra) and tbe dimming in the 
half shadow is hardly 
noticeable. 

Tbe 1988 lunars are partial 
and not observable from West- 
ern Europe, so we in Britain will 
have to wait until August 17, 
1989 to see a total eclipse of the 
Moon.

When two moving celestial 
bodies happen to have the same 
longitude in the sky they are said 
to be in conjunction. Mercury 


and Venus will be in conjunc- 
tion with the Sun this month, 
"inferior” because they are cm 
our side of tbe Sun, "superior” if 
on the opposite side. 

Normally the latitudes are 
differat and the planet is north 
or south of the Stm, Venus being 
south on this occasion. 

Once in a while the latitudes 
are the same, the planet is 
directly between us ana the Sun, 
and can be seen as a black dot 
crossing tbe Sun's disc. This wiD 
happen to Mercury on the 13th, 
but unfortunately not observ- 
able from north-west Europe; 
tbe event is from lb43m to 
6h31m and tbe Sun will not rise 
until after 7h. 

The intervals between transits 
of Mercury vary from 3 to 13 
years and occur in May and 
November. The last was in 
November 1973; elaborate 
preparations were made at 
Hets tm onceax and by ama- 


teurs, but the event was clouded 
out in southern England. 

The next wiH he m November 
1 993. Transits oTVenus occur in 
pairs eight years apart bat with 
more than a century between 
pahs. Tbe last were in 1874 and 
1882, and tbe next in 2004 and 
2012. In the I8tb and 19th 
centuries transits of Venus seen

determine the distance of the 
Sun and hence the scale of the 
solar system. 

November is the month of the 
Leonid Meteors, which may be 
about from the 15th to 20th, 
with a maximum on tbe night 
1 7th- 18th. It will not be very 
exciting as the “shooting stars", 
though sometimes bright, are 
rather few and it will be only just 
after full moon. The radiant is in 
Leo and wiQ not be well dear of

OBITUARY 

MR JOHN BRAINE 


»VlJ 

•vi 


Only one room at the top 


Mr John Braine, who died 
on October 28 at the age of 64, 
became, with his fits! novel. 
Room at the Top, one of tbe 
exemplars of the anti-heroic, 
anti-bourgeois spirit of post- 
war Britain, which became 
vociferous in the writers of tbe 
1950s. 

Joe Lamptou, hero of Room 
at the Top, was a typical 
protagonist of the genre. A 
working-class boy who won 
the boss's daughter and a 
share in the business,, be was 
left at die end with the proof of 
what be had always believed, 
that these successes are empty 
and meaningless by compari- 
son with a life of personal 
integrity. 

But Lampion, like his cre- 
ator, ran out of s t e am . The 
sequel to Room at the Top was 
a disappointment and so, 
essentially, was the rest of 
Braine’s fife. Though bis work 
continued to be successful 
commercially, his reputation 
as an original writer was not 
sustained. 

Politically he moved, like 
other writers ofhis generation, 
from angry Left to hard Right, 
and this ideological shift coin- 
cided with a physical move 
from North to South, which 
be had formerly refused to 
make on the grounds that it 
would be. “a land of betrayal 
to live eel off .from tbe 
working dass" Either way, his 
political views lacked depth. 

Yet it is not given to many 
to write even one enduring 
book, and it is likely that 
Room at the Top will last, both 
for its own merits as a story 
and for die tight it throws on a 
period. 

John Gerard Braine was 
born in Bradford on April 13, 
1921 He was brought up a 
Roman Catholic and educated 
at St Bede's Grammar School 
After a number of dead-end 
jobs, he became a librarian at 
Bingley. a small town in his 
native Yorkshire.

He pursued this career - 
with a break for 


for war service in 

the Navy -until 1951, when he 
decided to become a freelance 


writer. Though he did get a 
verse play. The De. 


_ Desert in the 

Mirror , produced in Bingley 
during this period, he fell ill 
with tuberculosis and, after a 
spell in hospital, returned to 
Ubrarianship. 

It was in 1957 that the 
publication of Room at the 
Topbrou&nhim almost over- 
night celebrity and enabled 
him to become a full-time 
writer. Filmed the following 
year, the book gained even 
wider currency. Though its 
commercial success was not 
inseparable from a preoccupa- 
tion with sex still relatively 
new to the reading public of 
the time. Room at the Top 
certainly is a powerful, un- 
sparing exposition of its 
theme. 

Braine's second novel. The 
Vodi (1959X is a not entirely 
happy excursion into the su- 
pernatural, but with Life at the 
Top (1962) be returns to Joe 
Lampton, now uneasily in- 


stalled as a capable but disillu-* > 
sioned executive. 

The descent into sheer com- .- 

merrialism, through wh Jdi so- 
cial -realism only fttluiiy 
flickers, continued in subse- 
quent novels. The Jealous Goa 
(1964) is, perhaps, an excep- 
tion. Bui The Crying Game 
(1968) and Stay with Me till 
Morning (1970) all continued > 
to weaken the “tough mani- 
festo which Braine as a seu~ ■ 
avowed Northern novelist had 
originally expounded against 
the “soft" South. 

By 1970 it was becoming 
dear fh»t his contribution to 
the En glish novel was to be a 
one-book affair. Bui he con- 
tinued to write novels as well 
as being a prolific literary 
journ alis t, and the television 
series, Man at the Top, de- . 
rived loosely from his books, 
enjoyed popularity. In 1980 
Stay with Me till Morning was 
adapted for television by : 
Yotkshire TV. 

Braine's later books are ever 
more obsessively autobio- 
graphical, apart from a study 
of J. B. Priestley (1979), 
published while the subject 
was still alive and expressing 
Br aine ’s warm admiration for 
the doyen ofYorkshire writers 
who was also a native of 
Bradford. 

In Oneand Last Love (1 98 1 ) 
Braine introduces himself 
under the new name of Tim 
Hamforth, a middle-aged 
Yorkshire writer settled ;in 
Surrey, who is having an 
adulterous affair. In These 
Golden Days (1985), his last 
novel. Hamforth moves to 
Hampstead and finds content- 
ment, though in more restrict- 
ed circumstances, with his . 
mistress. 

But Braine was not made 
for serenity. Though his con- 
duct involved much rejection 
of the rules of Roman Catholi- 
cism, he could never escape 
from tbe religion in which He 
was bred, aitt a sense of gu 
is. very noticeable in the wor 
of his middle age, even whi 
he is writinga thriller such •_ 
The Pious Agent (1975). Y« t 
his mind was not philosophic 
cal enough to enable him, like 
Graham Greene, to turn con-, 
fused faith into good art. i 

He married Helen Patricia 
Wood in 1955. She survives 
him with their son and three 
daughters.

Science report 


Spa study could help 
psoriasis sufferers 


ByTonySomstag 


An attempt to harness the 
curative properties of a natural 
spa is being made by Icelandic 
and British scientists for the 
treatment of psoriasis, a wide- 
spread and painAxi skin disorder 
thought to afflict as many as two 
per cent of the population in the 
Western Hemisphere. 

The condition is often asso- 
ciated with arthritis, and it is 
unresponsive to most available 
attempts at a cure. 

The Icelandic, involvement 
has come about through the 
curative properties of the Blue 
Lagoon, a pool formed as a 
byproduct at the Svartsengi geo- 
thermal heating plant on the 
Reykjanes peninsula in the 
south west of the 
country -Basking in the numer- 
ous “hot pots" created by 
Iceland's uniquely active vol- 
canic geology is a national 
pastime 

The Swedish film director 
Ingmar Berman, a psonasis 
sufferer, has given the Blue 
Lagoon his seal of approvaL 
Limited lathing facilities there 
are now managed by the Icelan- 
dic Society of Psoriasis and 
Eczema Sufferers.

A joint research team involv- 
ing unxnunologisis and biolo- 
gists at ibe National Hospital in 
Reykjavik and colleague* at Si 
Mary’s Hospital, London, has 
been studying tile condition for 
the past-four years, particularly 
the mvolvementofso-caBedT- 
belper" cells of the body’s 
defonoe system in tbe epidermis. 

Those cells, which are also 
believed to be most severely 
affected by the Aids virus, were 
found to be present in psoriatic 
patches, which in torn occur 
when the skin cefls begin to 
renew themselves at an ab- 
normally high rate. 

Dr Helgi Valdimarsson, 
whose team’s findings are re- 
ported in the September issue of 
immunology Today, writes that 
experimental trials of the drug 
cyclosporin A * used in trans- 
plant operations to in h ib it rqec- 
tion by selectively paralysing the 
T-helpex cells - have been most 
encouraging. 

He saysTI think it likely that 
the healing properties cif the 
Blue Lagoon are caused by a 
presence in the water of srinilar 
lymphocyte-paralysing factors” .

Syrians 
‘in truce 
deal with 
Paris’ 

From Diana Geddes 
Paris 

The French Government is 
reported to have obtained the 
help of Syria and Algeria in 
imposing a truce on terrorist 
bombers in exchange for an 
implicit undertaking that 
Georges Abdallah, their pre- 
sumed leader, will not be 
treated harshly when he is 
tried in France next February. 

These dramatic "reve- 
lations" are made in an 
nn sourced article is yest- 
erday's Le Monde by a 
journalist known to have ex- 
cellent contacts in the French 
secret service, which is said to 
have been involved. 

At die very moment the 
deal was allegedly being nego- 
tiated, M Jacques Chirac, the 
Prime Minister, was repeating 
the Government's determina- 
tion never to negotiate with 
terrorists. 

Abdallah, serving four years 
for possessing forged papers 
and illegal arms, will fere 
charges of complicity in the 
19S2 Paris murder of Mr 
Charles Ray. the American 
military attache, and Mr 
Yacov Barsimantov, an Israeli 
diplomat. His release is one of 
the principal demands of the 
terrorists. 

According to Le Monde, the 
Syrian secret service has 
agreed "to carry out physical 
reprisals" against the Abdal- 
lah dan if there are more 
attacks on France before the 
trial. 

The probable quid pro quo 
for the Syrians, the paper 
suggests, was cash plus the 
arms deal reported by various 
French and British papers. 

However, M Jean- Bernard 
Raimond, the French Foreign 
Minister, yesterday reiterated 
denials of any such deaL 

Furthermore, the delivery 
of arms due to be sent to the 
Syrians under 1982 and 1984 
contracts had been Mocked 
and all recent requests for 
more arms had been refused, 
he insisted. 

• LONDON: Britain and 
Syria were finalizing details 
yesterday to establish interest 
sections in each other's cap- 
itals when their embassies are 
closed at the end of the week 
(Nicholas Beeston writes). 

Britain is set to be repre- 
sented in Damascus by the 
Australian mission and Syria 
will be represented in London 
by the Lebanese Embassy on 
Kensington Palace Gardens, 
according to British and Syr- 
ian officials.

Modem Jarrow march steps into history 


AM, :**?;!>■.- * ' 



The present-day Jarrow marchers 
recreating the past yesterday in 
Buckinghamshire (above), as they 
rounded the corner in Lavendon, near 
Olney, where an historic photograph 
was taken of their predecessors on their 
1936 march to London to protest over 
unemployment (right). 

Mr John Badger, one of the 50th 
anniversary marchers, unveiled a brass 
plaque, which is a representation of the 
1936 picture, at the spot. 

Mr Neil Kinnock, the Labour leader, 
will join the marchers for an hour today. 
The 291-mile trek along the route used 
by the original marchers ends in 
London on Sunday. 

The marchers have been collecting 
thousands of signatures for a petition' 
urging help for unemployment black 
spots. It will be handed in the House of 
Commons next Wednesday.

from his parents. 

For more than a month 
after massacring his family 
with a .22 rifle Bamber fooled 
police into believing that his 
mentally ill sister, the former 
London model “Bambi”, had 
carried out the murders before 
committing suicide. 

Mr Justice Drake, the trial 
judge, criticized police for 
their “perfunctory 

examination" of the carnage 
at the farmhouse.

which the jury found the 
farmer's son guilty by a 10-2 
majority on five counts of 
murder, Mr Ronald Stone, 
retiring deputy chief con- 
stable, conceded that Bamber 
had duped detectives. 

Yesterday Mr Bunyard said: 
“I welcome the request from 
the Home Secretary for a 
report into the investigation. 

“It will give me the opportu- 
nity to correct any false im- 
pressions he may have formed 

“Although at an early stage 
in the inquiry the investigat- 
ing officers appeared to have 


been misdirected by a plau- 
sible villain, the position was 
recovered through the skill 
and dedication of a large 
number of members of the 
Essex police who produced 
enough evidence to secure a 
conviction.”

failure to find the blood- 
stained silencer belonging to

Frank Johnson In the Conw 118 

Westland and the 
selfless Major 


of a conspiracy involvement 
in security breaches not just 
the threat of an individual 
breach. 

Six of the servicemen 
acquitted have since fell the 
services, either through being 
discharged or after requests 
for voluntary premature . 
release. ! 

The seventh, Wayne 
Kriefan, had asked to be 
retased but is not due to leave 
the RAF until December 12. 


Mr George Younger, Sec- 
retary of State for Defence, in 
one more debate on West- 
land, yesterday used the most 
ruthless tactic so far in the 
Government's efforts to de- 
fend itself against the charge 
of malpractice in the affair of 
10 months ago. He spoke 
about helicopters. 

Technically, the debate was 
about the Government's re- 
sponse to die observations on 
the affair made by the aB- 
party Select Committee on 
Defence. But the committee 
had issued two lots of 
observations. The first was a " 
report entitled The Defence 
Implications of die Future of 
Westland (House of Com- 
mons Report, No 518), in 
other words, a document 
about a minor aspect of the 
affair (the helicopters). 

Hie second was a report 
entitled The Government’s 
Decision-Making (House of 
Commons Report, No 519), 
in other words, a document 
about what is really meant by 
the term Westland Affair. 
That is to say: Mr Michael 
Hesdtine, Mr Leon Brirtan, 
the Solictor. General's letter, 
Mr Bernard I n gha m , Ms 
Collette Bowe, what Mr 
f ngftam said to Ms Bowe, 
what they all said to the 
Prime Minister, and, above 
all Cut the view of the 
Opposition parties), what the 
Prime Minis ter said to all of 
them. 

Mr Younger, opening the 
debate, concentrated re- 
morselessly on the firet re- 
port. He rose, put his head 
down, and for more than half 
an hour read solidly about 
helicopters. “The House is 
indebted to the Rt Hon 
Member for Spefthome (Sir 
Humphrey Atkins, Tory 
chairman of the Select 
Committee) mid his commit- 
tee for a dear and cogent 
exposition of the 'defence 
issues, based on wide and 
deep research," be begin. 

Furthermore, “the Gov- 
ernment agree with much of 
the committee’s analysis. In- 
evitably there are points on 
which we cannot go the whole 
way with the Committee, but 
this does not prevent os from 
recognizing foe report as a 
major contribution . . .* and 
soon. 

Major Contribution is one 
of the several senior mflxtaxy 
gentlemen called on by poli- 
ticians to carry out important 
tasks in difficult times. He is 
of course not ns senior as 
General Review or the top 
brasshat, most favoured by. 
Labour and Alliance eco- 
nomic spokesmen, and the 


roost extrera Tow Wets. 
Genera) Reflation. But ata 
feast he is a commissioned 
officer and many cuts abo« 
that oik who is always being 
called for by the new class of 
ptebian Tory backbencher 
Corporal Punishment. 

Yesterday, the Major gave 
selfless service when called 
upon by Mr Younger, himself 
a former officer and therefore 
an old comrade. And it gave 
great satisfaction in all parts 
of the House when Major 
Contribution received a de- 
coration from the hands of 
the Secretary of State for 
Defence: 

Reading the citation, Mr 
Younger said that, while 
serving on the Select Com- 
mittee, the Major h3d 
contributed “to thinking on 
the subject”, which was 
“proving valuable ra helping 
us to form our own views”. 
There seemed every prospect 
that the. Major win end up 
being promoted to- General 
Analysis, retiring with a 
greatly-enhanced pension 

‘‘The committee rightly 
point out that the helicopter 
has an established place tn 
both maritime and land-air 
warfare,” Mr Younger con- 
tinued. On and on be went 
about helicopters. Labour 
backbenchers began fidget- 
ing. Tories chuckled to one 
another. Mrs Thatcher, sea- 
ted next to Mr Younger, 
stared down at what at first 
seemed an important piece of 
paper. On closer inspection, 
ft proved to be blank. 

MrBrittan, the mysterious 
lawyer at the centre of the 
affair, emerged to give his 
reaction to the Select Com- 
mittee's strictures about the 
way the decisions were made. 
In fixture, any government 
would and should insist “that 
its decisions should have the 
support of all its members 
and - should not be under- 
mined from within”. 

Later, he was a little more i 
personal when he said that ! 
the Government's policy 
over Westland had been 
“threatened at every turn by 
one of its own members”. 
These were his only ref- 
erences to the Westland Af- 
fair, as history knows it Mr 
Hesdtine, who had made it 
known that he would not be 
speaking, was present, and 
stared at the ceiling. The 
determined tone of Mr Bri- 
ttan’s speech, however, is 
summed up by one of its last 
phrases “I make no apology, 
for making &'tauch of myi 
remarks about helicopter ■ 
policy."

Dealers angry as 
chaos hits 




vsr ’’ - 


Exchange again 


By Richard Thomson, Banking Correspondent 
Chaos continued in the systems were at fault or that of information before anyone 


equity markets yesterday with 
several dealers being unable to 
have their prices qooted on 
the Topic screen network. In 
addition, the Stock Exchange 
cut back sharply on the ser- 
vices available on the system 
and there were growing fears 
that the problems of this week 
could take a long time to 
correct. 

To add to the confusion, 
many brokers have been 
experiencing faults in their 
settlements systems, leading 
to late or inaccurate contract 
notes being sent to clients. 

A number of large market- 
makers, including Barclays de 
Zoete Wedd, Mercury Securi- 
ties and Morgan Grenfell 
Securities, suffered break- 
downs during the day, forcing 
them to abandon quoting 
prices on screens and resort to 
telephones. 

Most companies experienc- 
ing problems were uncertain 
whether it was their in-house 


the Stock Exchange. It was 
dear that users of the in-house 
Colt system, which interfeces 
with SEAQ, were experiencing 
repeated problems. Both BZW 
and Mercury use Colt. 

While most market-makers 
pul on a brave fece, there were 
growing signs behind the 
scenes of a lack of confidence 
in the ability of the market to 
correct the iauhs now afflict- 


ing its systems. 
Some 


re dealers now question 
the Stock Exchange's right to 


Comment 25 


control the systems on which 
the market is based and 
suggested it might be better to 
develop alternative systems. 

The Exchange is taking took 
short-term measures to pre- 
vent another failure of the 
Topic screen network. These 
include “reprioritizme'' Topic 
so that when demand is high it 
services those requiring price 


requesting company news. 

This means that many ser- 
vices will take even longer to 
appear on dealers' Topic 
screens. Services furthest 
down the list of priorities 
indude information on finan- 
cial futures, foreign exchange 
and economic forecasting. 
The process of updating Topic 
pages has been speeded up 

The Exchange has also 
taken steps to re-impose a 
£2,000 charge on all users of 
Topic Level 3 screens in the 
hope of reducing the number 
of subscribers. 

M Whai they are doing is 
very much at the margin,” 
complained one dealer. 

The Exchange appears to 
have been arbitrarily dis- 
connecting Topic lines for 
some users and refusing to 
deliver new lines' which Have 
been ordered. 

A spokesman said that there 
was no more room to bring 
new lines into the system. 



Surrounded by discontent: Mr George Hayter, bead of information services at the Exchange 


Isro members vote 


to merge with SE 


By Our Banking Correspondent 


The International Securities 
Regulatory Organization, the 
group of hugely foreign banks 
and securities houses, yes- 
terday voted overwhelmingly 
to merge with the Stock 
Exchange. 

The merger now hinges on 
the degree of support it will 
receive from the Exchange 
itself which will vote on the 
issue next month. 

It would mean the creation 
of a unified exchange and 
regulatory body for both Brit- 
ish and international equities. 

This is likely to [move one of 
the most important events of 
the . City revolution, 
strengthening London’s pos- 
ition as one of the .world's 
main capital markets. 

Senior members of the Ex- 
change are strongly in favour 
of the move because they are 
afraid that, without it, the 
growing business in inter- 
national equities would leave 
the Exchange. 

Isro’s members voted by 
164 to 1, with 22 abstentions, 
in favour of. merging with the

There is still resistance to 
the move by members in spite 
of strong support for the 


merger from Sir Nicholas 
Goomson, chairman of the

As a result of the merger a 
new setfoegulatqry organiza-

ation will be formed to police 
the conduct of market partici-

Isro said that it was not 
worried by the problems with 
the Exchange's new screen- 
based dealing system as far as 
international equities were 
concerned 

A spokesman pointed out 
that the international equity

Loan rates 
‘need to go 
up again 9 


By Rodney Lord 
Economics Editor 


A further sharp rise in 
interest rates mil be necessary 
to prop up Che pound, says 
Phillips & Drew, the broker, in 
its latest moodily forecast. 
The rise would be necessary to 
restore fo»nrioi confidence 
and to keep mflariw under'] 
control in an economy which 
was be ginning to Overheat. 

The iroker forecasts that 
consumer spending will con- 
tinue to grow strongly, 
expanding next year by 3S per 
cent as the savings ratio falls. 
Pay Increases would not mod- 
erate much and the current 
account would rm up a deficit 
of £3 Union, rising to £4 % 
billion in 1988. 

Philfips & Drew expects 
sizeable tax cuts next year, 
combined with public spend- 
ing overruns, leading to an 
increase in borrowing. It says 
a public-sector financial defi- 
cit — struck before deduction 
of privatization receipts — of 
perhaps £14 billion In 1987-88 
is worrying. 

A more optimistic prognosis 
comes from another broker, 
Capel-Cnre Myers, which be- 
lieves the fall in the pound will 
stimulate manufacturing and 
boost economic -growth from 
1.9 per cent this year to 2L5 per 
emit next 

Capel-Cnre Myers believes 
the more employment-inten- 
sive non-North Sea economy 
cooU grow by 3.1 per cent, 
leading to a Fall in 
unemployment 

A small reduction in pay 
increases, cofqded with higher 
productivity growth, would 
help to slow labour costs and 
cmdd keep inflation below 4 
per cent until the final quarter 
of next year.

Hanson backtracks over 


pension funds dispute 


By Lawrence Lever 


Hanson Trust was forced 
into a last-minute dimbdown 
at a shareholders' meeting 
yesterday over its plans to 
split the Courage pension 
funds and to take control of an 
estimated £80 million pension 
surplus.. 

It agreed to reopen dis- 
cussions on dividing the pen- 
sion funds with Elders IXL, 
the Australian later company, 
which is buying Courage. 

And it accepted it was 
wrong to deny representatives 
from the Transport and Gen- 
eral Workers’ Union a meet- 
ing with the Courage pension 
fund management and trus- 
tees. 

However, the fete of the 
surplus remains uncertain. 
And Courage pensioners were 
unable to obtain assurances 
from Hanson Trust that they 
will have the same generous 
benefits treatment as they 
enjoyed with Courage. 

Lord Hanson, absent on 
business in America, left it to 
Mr Derek Rosling, vice-chair- 
man, to fece the music at a 


packed shareholders' meeting 
called to approve the sale of 
Courage. 

The London meeting was 
picketed by about 150 Cour- 
age employees, and domi- 
nated by a barrage of 
questions from Courage pen- 
sioners who were also Hanson 
Trust shareholders. The 
TGWU bought Hanson shares 
on Friday to enable its general 
secretary, Mr Ron Todd, to 
attend. 

The union had called a 48- 
hour strike on Tuesday. 

Yesterday's climbdown 
came after repeated questions 
from Courage pensioners and 
employees. However, it was 
not until an intervention by 
Mr Richard Courage, a former 
chairman of Courage, that Mr 
Rosling relented and agreed to 
reopen talks. 

Mr Rosling had previously 
said: “Hanson Trust has not 
taken any funds out of the 
Imperial or Courage pension 
schemes, nor will it do so 
voluntarily in the future". 

The key word was 


“voluntarily'*. A Hanson 
shareholder pointed out that 
provisions of the Finance Act 
1986 might well force Hanson 
to claim the surplus for itself. 

“If statute requires us to do 
to it, we have to comply." Mr 
Rosling admitted. 

After the meeting. Mr 
Rosling said Hanson fold not 
deliberately set out to use the 
new legislation to claim the 
surplus. Nor had the surplus 
been a factor in calculating 
Courage's sale price. 

Mr Rosling said: “It is not 
certain what, if any, surplus 
there may be". 

However, it emerged yes- 
terday that an actuarial valua- 
tion of the three Courage 
pension funds in 1985 bad 
revealed a surplus of about 
£80 million. 

Actuarial sources said yes- 
terday Hanson's plans resem- 
bled a lactic called “spin-off- 
termination" used in the US. 
This is employed by American 
companies to enable them to 
claim pension fund surpluses 
for themselves. 


Eurotunnel 
hits UK 
cash target 

By Our City Staff 


Eurotunnel the Anglo- 
French Channel tunnel con- 
sortium which has been 
struggling to raise £206 mil- 
lion in an international share 
placing, succeeded yesterday 
in its cash-raising exercise. 

By the 2pm deadline 
Eurotunnel had reached the 
£75 million British target with 
applications from more than 
40 institutions, including “one 
or two" investments of more 
than £5 million. 

A similar amount has been 
raised in France, with the 
remainder being pledged from 
Japan, the United States and 
other countries. 

Directors of the consortium 
were meeting last night in 
Paris, collating the share 
subscriptions.

Goodyear ‘buying spree’ on 
talk of Goldsmith takeover 


From Bailey Morris, Washington 


Goodyear Tyre & Rubber 
refused to comment yesterday 
on reports that a takeover bid 
by Sir James Goldsmith was 
imminenL 


The Ohio company, which 
agreed last week to consider a 
restructuring plan to raise the 
value of its shares, has, 
according to analysts, been on 
“a wild buying spree" in 
response to the reports. 

Sir James is reported to own 
more than 15 per cent of 
Goodyear's 109 million out- 
standing shares. His stake, 
based on recent share prices, is 
valued at S781 million (£557 
million). He is supposed to 
have raised a war chest 
through Bankers Trust Com- 
pany to launch a new takeover 
campaign after his successful 
bid last year for Crown 
ZeUerbach Corporation. 

The Goodyear reports sur- 
prised analysts who said Sir 


James was best known for his 
interest in undervalued com- 
panies with large natural re- 
sources. Goodyear's sale of 
tyres accounts for about 70 per 
cent of earnings. 

Last December h acquired 
oil and gas properties from 
Chevron Corporation and in 
1983 ii acquired enemy hold- 
ings from Celeron Corpora- 
tion. Analysts said these 
properties, valued at $700 
million, were contributing lit- 
tle to earnings. In addition, 
Goodyear owns a small aero- 
space business. 

Hie Goodyear talk swept 
Wall Street as analysis reacted 
to news that, First Interstate 
Bancorp had raised its offer 
for BankAm erica Corporation 
from $18 to $22 a share. 


First Interstate's latest offer, 
to be considered by the 
BankAm erica board at a meet- 
ing on Monday, was valued at 


$3.39 billion. This represents 
an increase of 22 per cent on 
the earlier offer which Mr AW 
“Tom" Clausen, the new chief 
executive, had indicated he 
would reject 

Analysis said, given its 
pressing need for new capital 
BankAmerica might find it 
difficult to reject the First 
Interstate offer, even though 
Mr Clausen wants the bank to 
remain independent 

• Pittsburgh (AP-DJ) — Mr 
Robert Holmes a Court, the 
Australian investor, sold his 
entire stake in USX Corp 
about two weeks ago, Mr 
David Roderick, the USX 
chairman, revealed. 

Mr Roderick said Mr 
Holmes a Court acquired 
shares in USX worth $15 
million prior to a Hart-Scott- 
Rodino filing. He then ac- 
quired additional shares and 
options. 


Globe Investment Trust 
yesterday reported a 15 per 
cent increase in profits 
attributable to shareholders 
for the six months to Septem- 
ber 30, 1986. 

The attributable profits, af- 
ter tax, were £11 million, 
compared with £9.5 million in 
the corresponding period last 
year. 

Mr David Harvey, Globe's 
chairman, said yesterday the 
whole group had contributed 
to this year's rise; which was 
pleasing since Globe had re- 
duced its holdings in high- 


By Our City Staff 


yield stocks over the past two 
years in favour of low-yielding 
British and overseas invest- 
ments. 


He also highlighted the 
increase in underwriting fees 
and a reduction in the invest- 
ment trust’s borrowings. 


However, he cautioned that 
the first-half increase would 
not be repealed in the second 
half. Earnings per share were 
increased by 12.9 per cent in 
the first half while net asset 
value decreased by 1.47 per 
cent 


Undertaker 
named as 
a star of

ial talent was taken a step

Optical fibre link 
opens ocean lines 

By Teresa Poole, Easiness Correspondent 


- The world's first inter- 
national undersea optical fibre 
cable link was opened yes- 
terday, the first ora number of 
links planned worldwide. 

! They will mean thousands 
of miles of optical fibres laid 
beneath the oceans over the 
next 10 years. 

I The 113 km (70.2 miles) 
link between Britain and Bel- 
gium is a joint project between 
British Telecom Inter- 
national, Deutsche 
Bundespost of West Ger- 
many, and the Belgium and 
Netherlands telecommunica- 
tions carriers. 

‘The system cost more than 
£10 million, including a 
£7.47 million contract with 
STC Submarine Systems 
which supplied the cable and 
tcjminaJ equipment. 

;The optica] fibre link, which 
carries information along 
hair-thin strands of glass, has a 
total capacity of more than 
1 1,500 telephone circuits, 
equivalent to about half the 
present total capacity of 12 
oS- style cables. 

■Technology has moved 
ahead since the first undersea 


telecommunications link be- 
tween England and conti- 
nental Europe was laid in 
1853. 

The Britain-Belgium fink 
puts in place the first of a 
global network of undersea 
optical fibre cables in which 
British Telecom will have a 
stake. 

The TAT-8 transatlantic ca- 
ble, of which the 29 co-owners 
also include AT&T and a 
number of European carriers, 
is expected to be in service by 
mid- 1988. 

British Telecom, which re- 
duced prices for early cus- 
tomers, has already taken 
orders for private leased cir- 
cuits from companies includ- 
ing Mobil, Barclays Bank. 
British Airways, and Manage- 
ment Services of America, 
worth more than £4 million a 
year. 

Prices were reduced re- 
cently to compete with the 
transatlantic cable which Mer- 
cury Communications plans 
to nave operating by 1989, in 
partnership with Nynex of the 
United States. 


Young job makers turn 
the Prince’s idea 
into a business success 


The Youth Business Initia- 
tive is for job mafcere rather 
than job seekers, according to 
the Prince of Wales, president 
of YBL who yesterday visited 
its trade fair in Manchester 
Airport's hangar six. 

The YB1 helps young people 
between the ages of 18 and 25 
to turn ideas into profitable 
businesses, with the help of a 
network of 18 regional co- 
ordinators supported by hun- 
dreds of managers at Britain's 
most successful companies. 

The scheme began as a 
result of a visit by Prince 
Charles to Liverpool's Tox- 
teth area four years ago. 
Spotting a group of teenagers 
as be picked his way through 
the nibble of the riot-torn 
area, he stopped to ask what 
they thought had gone wrong 
and why street violence was 
tearing the bean out of the 
city. 

There was a lot of shoe- 
shuffling until one of the 


lan Smith. Northern Correspondent 


group muttered it was because 
no-one cared about youngsters 
with no jobs and no future. 

Prince Charles nodded and 
walked off and the youngsters 
thought their plight had yet 
again fallen on deaf ears. 

However, he quickly en- 
listed the aid of leaders in 
commerce and industry to set 
up YBI and provide not only 
money but a wealth of pro- 
fessional guidance to help 
those unemployed youngsters 
eager but ignorant of how to 
establish themselves in the 
business world. 

With the help of enterprise 
agencies, banks and building 
societies, budding en- 
trepreneurs are helped to pro- 
duce a business plan which is 
then submitted to a regional 
board. 

Iftheplan is approved, each 
applicant receives a £1.000 
bursary, with an additional 
£40 a week Manpower Ser- 


vices Commission allowance 
for the first 12 months. 

An essential part of the 
project's success is the input of 
industrial expertise, a 
commitment proved not only 
by the attendance of 300 of the 
country's top industrialists at 
the trade fair, but by the large 
sums of money put into the 
project. 

Ferranti, Bass Chamngtoo. 
National Westminster Bank, 
I CL and Marks and Spencer 
are a few of the contributors. 

The companies have given 
senior executives paid leave of 
absence of up to two years to 
take pan in the scheme. 

The success of YBI was 
shown by the 108 exhibition 
stands 

They offered services from 
taxidermy to five-tiered cakes 
for special occasions, hand- 
crafted clocks, designer 
dress wear, engraved glass- 
ware. pine cabinets and por- 
trait painting. 


Abaco pays £12.5m for Lambert US ‘losing China trade 9 


■Abaco Investments, the 
acquisitive financial services 
group, is (raying Lambert 
Smith & Partners, the consul- 
tant surveyor and valuer, for

Lambert makes profits of £15 
million this year. The exit p/e, 
assuming profits of £15 mil- 
1km, Is 125. Abaco will fund 
Lambert internally. 


Mr John Bohn, president of 
the US Export-Import Bank, 
said at a press conference bens 
yesterday that American busi- 
ness is losing milli ons of 
dollars worth of contracts in 
the Chinese market because it 
cannot compete with Euro- 
pean and Japanese con- 
cessional financing. 

Mr Bohn said that if current 
talks in Paris “do not go weir 


in clearly defining the circum- 
stances under which France 
and Japaa, in particular, could 
provide mixed credits to 
China, the US might be forced 
to provide similar financing 
arrangements. 

“We believe aid should be 
used for aid purposes, and not 
to finance purchases of tele- 
communications equipment," 
Mr Bohn added.

We’d like to get 
on first name terms. 


P LEASE DON’T THINK we’re advocating 
any unseemly informality. Far from it. 

We merely wish to become the first name that 
springs to mind when you’re considering any 
thing to do with offices, shops, or industrial and 
high-technology buildings. 

Anything, did we say? Yes, more or less. 

We’re aware that’s rather a laige claim. 
However, we are rather a large practice 
(We’ve eighty-five partners and associates, 
and over five hundred staff in the UK alone.) 

And we didn’t get big by turning down 
small jobs. In the past year, for example, 
we’ve handled instructions on units ranging 
in size from 400 square feet up. Admittedly, 
the largest is 3 million square feet, and it’s true 
that much of our work is extremely large. 

As a matter of fact we think our size adds 
perspective to our experience and skills. 

Big can be beautiful too, you know. 

We’d like to put our skills at your service. And 
to begin with, left run through what we do. 

Our investment people handle buying and 
selling, and the funding of property development. 

Our agency teams cover developing, letting 
and acquiring, as well as rent reviews and lease 
renewals. 

Our valuations group can tell you what your 
property’s worth. 

And in these days of ‘intelligent buildings’ 
you need highly intelligent advice on manage- 
ment, maintenance, and the improvement of 
property. 

Whaft more our databank is one of the 



largest sources of commercial property informa- 
tion; which is one reason we act as consultants 
to so many clients. 

And we’re just as at home abroad. In other 
Jones Lang Wootton firms overseas there are a 
further 125 partners and 1,200 staff, in 35 offices, 
in 14 countries, on 4 continents.

small, we're at your service.

To begin with, just ask for Jones Lang Wootton.

Pilkington jumps 14p on talk of 
dawn raid bv BTR at 550d 


Oi^runtled majricet men, 
oom plaining constantly about 
the sterile atmosphere of the 
new-Jook City, resorted yes- 
today tore^ngitatinga string 
ofVB-oU bid stories. 

Top of the list was 
Fuknsgtoa Brothers, the 
manufacturer, where talk late 
m the day was of a dawn raid 
7" cither first thing this morn- 
ing or tomorrow — by BTR, 
the industrial conglomerate, at 
550p a share. 

Cazenove, the broker, 
which acts for Pilkingtoix, is 
believed to have checked 
through the share register and. 
found nothing untoward. 

Only last week, there was 
speculation that Cazenove 
might be about to resign as 
Pmongton’s broker so that ft 
could act Syr another party 
wanting to take Pilkington 
over. 

Pilkington’s shares spurted 
14p to 520p and BTR finned 
5p to 285p. 

Some analysts suggested 
that Pilkington might be about 
to launch its long-awaited bid 
for United Scientific, up 2p at 
1 SOp, as a defensive move. 

Hanson Trust and its next 
possible US acquisition was 
also widely discussed, with 
American Brands, the $5.5 
billion tobacco and rKsfiTferf 
drinks group, the most fre- 
quently mentioned name. 

Bat American Brands owns 
Gallagher, which, coupled 
with Hanson's Imperial To- 
bacco offshoot, would give it 
about 70 per cent of the British 
tobacco market — and prob- 
lems with the Monopolies 
Commission. 

A takeover deal accompa- 
nied by the sale of either 
Imperial Tobacco or GaDaher 


By Carol Leonard 


could be one solution. An- 
other company mentioned as 
a possible cuget for Hanson's 
attentions is Corn Products, 
which owns Heilman's May- 
onnaise asd a number of other 
leading brand names. Its 
shares have risen from $60 to 
$80 on Wall Street in the past 
couple of weeks. 

Elsewhere in equities, the 
stock market bad its best day 
so far this week, with traders 
slightly busier, but volumes 
thin. 

Hie FT 30 share index 
finished at its highest levd of 
the day, 11.2 up at 1,267.2. 
The FT-SE 100 index rose 
even further, dosing 13.4 up 
at 1,597.0.

couraged by the news that the

The Forte family 
.tightening their control 



JAN FEB MAR APR MAY JUN JUL AUG SEP OCT 


The Forte family, owners of 
Trnsthsnse Forte, the £13 
"billion hotel chain, have been 
on a £2.25 million spending 
spree, buying shares m their 
own company. Towards the 
end of Last week, Lord Forte, 
his son, Rocco and daughter, 
Mrs Olga Politzi, picked up 
500,000 shares each, paying 
about I SOp a share. 

The move is being seen in 
some quarters as defensive- 
Earlier this year there was 
speculation that Marriott Ho- 
tels, the US group, might be 
about to launch a bid and it 
was discovered that the family 
control of THF was not as 
watertight as had generally 
been assumed. 

One City analyst com- 
mented: “It could just be that 
they had a bit of spare cash 
and did it as an investment" 

The Forte family and their 
fellovV directors speak for 
about 20 per cent of the 
company, with a panel of 
trustees controlling a further 
50 per cent However, recent 
speculation that the trustees 
might soon be disbanded, 
leaving the group wide open to 
a predator, is, it is understood. 


unfo unde d 

Talk that the family may be 
on the brink of sdlbg its stake 
in the Savoy Hotel, worth 
about £300 million, is also 
untrue. 

THPs shares, which have 
been a steady market of late, 

9 Matthew Brown, the 
North-of-England bre we r y, 
spurted a further 15p to a 
fresh record of 568p, with 
specnlatnrs hoping that 
Scottish & Newcastle may 
soon launch a new bid. The 
12-month cease-fire since 
S&N's last,narrowly-«n- 
snccessfhl takeover attempt 
ends on December 11. 

eased 4p to I60p. 

This speculation comes on 
the eve of the publication of 
Lord Forte's autobiography, 
called simply Forte. 

Stothert & Pitt, the troubled 
engineer where Mr Robert 
Maxwell, owner of the Daily 
Minor, is in the process of 
injecting £4 million in return 
for a 773 per cent share stake, 
hit another fresh low, with its 
shares falling Sp to 90 t. This 
makes a two-day fall of 30p

growth next year of 1.8 per 
cent — too small to make any 
impact on unemployment — 
and a significant jump in 
inflati on to 51& per cent. The 
explanation lies partly in the 
large current account deficit 
which the institute is 
expecting. 

The big uncertainty, as so 
Often, is how foe supply side of 
the economy will respond to 
the opportunities created by a 
lower exchange rate. 

There is no prospect of any 
shortage of demand. Con- 
sumer spending, fuelled by 
high real wage increases, has 
remained buoyant this year 
and is widely expected to stay 
that way next year. The av- 
erage expectation is that it will 
grow by nearly 4 per cent in 
1987, roughly the same rate of 
growth as this year. 

Some of this consumer de- 
mand will be met by imports. 
The average expectation is 
that import volume will grow 
by 5 per cent, in other words 
rather more than the growth in 
consumer spending. 

But the National Institute 
thinks British industry will 
find itself unable to supply 
enough goods of the right 
quality at the right price to 
compete with the flood ofcars 
and domestic appliances from 
overseas and that import vol- 
ume will grow by as much as 
6% per cent 

Recent American experi- 
ence lends some support to the 
institute’s gloomy view. De- 
spite a steep drop in the 
exchange rate of foe dollar 
since the Plaza meeting more 
than a year ago, the US trade 


deficit remains obstinately 
huge. 

The reason seems to be 
partly . that many Japanese 
exporters have decided to 
suffer the rise in the yen in 
terms of lower profits rather 
than lower volume. 

They have kept their prices 
competitive in dollars and 
maintained their exports. 
Other exporters from the Far 
East, such as Taiwan ami 
Sooth Korea, have kept their 
currencies pegged to the doflar 
and have seen their exports 
leap ahead. The trade-weight- 
ed index of the dollar’s value 
does not reflect movements 
against these currencies — nor 
does the pound's. 

Equally difficult to forecast 
is the proportion of the ex- 
pected increase in world trade 
nicely to. be taken by British 
exports. Views on how much 
world trade is likely to grow 
vary widely from nearly 7 per 
cent,, expected by the Liver- 
pool group headed by Profes- 
sor Patrick Minford, to only 
3 & per cent predicted by foe 
Confederation of British 
Industry. 

How much this mil boost 
Britain's exports is equally 
uncertain, with forecasts vary- 
ing from 4.4 per cent for 
Henley to only 0.9 per cent in 
Phillips & Drew’s latest fore- 
cast But the consensus is 
there will be certainl y som e 
response to the faster growth 
in world trade and the average 
view is for export growth of 
32 per cent next year, com- 
pared with only 1.9 per cent 
this year. 

What sort of a response to 
the improvement in compet- 


itiveness produced by the fall 
in the pound can we expect 
from British manufacturers? 
Phillips & Drew says flatly it is 
no use relying on sterling 
depreciation to correct the 
current account deficit when 
domestic demand continues 
to outstrip supply. 

On the other hand, exports 
have been very buoyant re- 
cently despite the large deficits 
recorded in the last two 
months. The CBrs latest sur- 
vey published earlier this 
week confirms industry is now 
more optimistic both at home, 
on account of high consumer 
spending, and abroad, because 
or the fall in sterlin g- But it 
suggests mine companies are 
putting up prices than are 
going for volume — the reverse 
of the Japanese strategy. 

What is dear is that in- 
dustry faces a more attractive 
prospect than for some time if 
it has the confidence to make 
use of it. The signs of a modest 
fall in pay settlements are 
encouraging. Manufacturers 
have responded to overseas 
opportunities before, for in- 
stance in 1984, and can do so 

A gain 

Earlier this year, with the 
prospect of low inflation and a 
boost to growth from the fall 
in oil prices, it seemed for a 
time as though the Govern- 
ment's economic managers 
might have peaked too soon 
from an electoral point of 
view. But, as it turns out, there 
is a fair chance economic 
circumstances mil be swing- 
ing the Government's way 
when the country goes to the 
polls. 


and more than halves the 
value of the company since 
the peak of 210p this year. 

But fears that the sudden 
demise of the share price 
might signal that Mr Maxwell 
has decided to poll out from 
the deal — being done through 
a subsidiary of his Pfcrgamon 
Press master company - are 
unfounded. 

Adviser Hill Samuel says it 
is working on the refinancing 
package now and hopes to be 
in a position to offer detailed 
proposals for shareholders' 
approval before the end of 
November. 

Mr Leslie Goodman, of Hill 
Samuel, said: “Mr Maxwell's 
rescue package values 
Stothert's shares at l«s than 
60p and one could argue that 
the market is adjusting the 
share price so that it is more in 
line with his offer." 

Oils were weak once again 
on talk that Mexico and Saudi 
Arabia have been offering ofl 
at a 50 per cent discount to 
market rates. BP dropped a 
further 8p to 635p, IC Gas 9p 
to 564p, Britoil 3.5p to 124.5p, 
Shell 2p to 876pand Petranol 
a couple of pence to 34p. 

The news that Grand 
Metropolitan has appointed 
Mr Ian Martin as managing 
director of its US operation 
did tittle for its shares, which 
slid 5p to 433p. However, Mr 
Daniel Leaf, a leading sector- 
analyst at Wood Mackenzie, 
the tanker, sees the move as 
positive. He said: “Together 
with its sale of Liggett Myers 
and its plans to appoint a new 
chief executive, it shows that 
the company is clearly 
responding to City criticism.” 

BET jumped 1 7p to 4J3p in 
response to a “buy" recom- 
mendation from Mr Bob 
Havflte, an analyst at James 
Capel, the broker. 

Hepworth Ceramics, the 
manufacturer of day and plas- 
tic pipes, was the highlight of 
the building sector on talk that 
English China Clays may be 
about to launch a bid at 270p a 
share. Hepworth's shares leapt 
21p to 208p in response. 
Hepworth is capitalized at 
around £335 million, com- 
pared with English China 
Clay’s £260 million, so if there 
were an approach, it is tikeiy 
to be an agreed deal 

Barratt Developments, the 
housebuilder, gamed 4p to 
148p after a lunch at 
Cazenove, which is thought to 
have been bullish. 

Reed International, the pa- 
per and publishing concern, 
jumped 40p to 29 lp in late 
trading after revealing a 57 per 
cent increase in interim prof- 
its. Chase Securities immedi- 
ately stepped up its profits 
forecast for the full year to 
£182 million 


COMMENT Kenneth Fleet 


Exchange must act to 
prevent Topic decay 


The trouble with computer problems 
is that once they creep into the system 
they tend to feed upon themselves and 
become less easy to sort out Thus the 
problems encountered on the first day 
of Big Bang, for from being teething 
troubles, have progressively proved to 
be deep-seated faults in the gums. 

The Stock Exchange is in some 
difficulty now. Essentially, the capac- 
ity of the Topic information display 
system, on to which the all-important 
SEAQ system was, for convenience, 
grafted, is just not big enough for the 
job. It needs to be able to cope with 
200 inquiries a second and it has 
manag ed that only briefly, on Monday 
before the rot set in. 

No wonder many member com- 
panies are worried about the separate 
but equally vital automated settle- 
ment system, yet to face its first big 
tesL For this, too, has been subject to 
teething troubles. 

Only practice will tell whether those 
doubts are legitimate or just derived 
from the Topic experience. But al- 
ready it is clear that the Stock 
Exchange Council and executive will 
have to take some swift and possibly 
drastic measures if Big Bang is to 
enhance London's position in inter- 
national debt and equity markets and 
not irretrievably damage it After all, 
British industry is littered with ba- 
sically good products that never sold 
because they were full of faults when 
first put on the market 

The picture of large securities 
houses switching randomly in and out 
of the SEAQ system in different 
sectors of the market to cope with 
unpredictable breakdowns, is an un- 
happy and unsustainable one. This is 
the worst of all worlds. 

There is no instant prospect of 
increasing computer capacity. The 
Stock Exchange is trying computer 
software solutions, but these will take 
some time. Decisions have to be taken 
to reduce the strain on the system in 
an organized and not an arbitrary 
way. 

It is legitimate to axe some less vital 
Topic services or to reduce their 
availability. This may be enough to 
preserve the integrity of SEAQ. But 
the Exchange may have to bite an 
even bigger bullet and take some of 
the third and even second class equity 
stocks off SEAQ altogether. These 
were always likely to be traded, as in 
days of yore, on the floor of the 
Exchange. Now they may have to 
revert to old manual methods of price 
display. 

As is so often the case, however, one 
man's disaster is another’s boost to 
business — in this case Reuters’. 
Futures prices on Liffe and some 
foreign exchange has been axed from 
Topic already, leaving Reuters’ Mon- 
itor service, already used by the 
Eurosecurities market, in pole pos- 
ition. Reuters has a more advanced 


system with more safeguards. It foiled 
to make a deal with the Stock 
Exchange, mainly as it turns out, to 
the Exchange's cost 

A cut in the air 

Yesterday morning, the Bank of 
England proved to its entire satisfac- 
tion that n can sell smoothly £1 billion 
of government debt in the new gilt- 
edged market The Treasury 10 per 
cent Convertible 1991 was over- 
subscribed at £96.50 percent, 25p 
above the minimum tender price. 

The operation may have been 
helped by using money from the 
redemption of Exchequer 14 per cent 
to support the market but a technical 
ploy of this kind is as nothing 
compared with the scent of an early 
cut in bank base rates. The market 
caught a whiff of it last evening when 
speculation, originating in Tokyo, 
that the Japanese may be about to cut 
their discount rate from 3 V* per cent, 
reached the ears and screens of New 
York bond dealers. 

It might make sense. Although the 
West German authorities have set 


the United States and the United 
Kingdom have an immediate vested 
interest in well-informed expectations 
of lower interest rates. 

At the moment, the US bond 
market is uneasy about prospects for 
the November auctions of Federal 
Government debt, especially after the 
lukewarm response to an issue of 
seven year notes. The Japanese have 
in their end-November sights a new 
issue whose yield — the murmur is 5.7 
per cent — will become the benchmark 
tor the Tokyo market, as well as an 
important indicator for New York. 
The differential “norm” between the 
two markets is 214 per cent. Positive 
action, like cutting the Japanese 
discount rate, would help clear the air. 

The London market would now like 
to believe that the Chancellor is 
girding his loins for a cut of a half of 
one percentage point in base rates. 
The Bank of England's signals to the 
money market, though not entirely 
unambiguous, are tending to raise 
hopes. If, as seems likely, the bulk of 
yesterday's Treasury Convertible 
stock went no further than the market- 
makers, the next, retailing phase could 
not have a better send-off than the 
gathering expectation of a Lawson 
half point off. 

The one grey shadow across this 
brightening picture is the foil in 
German bond prices. The average 
yield, calculated by the Bundesbank, 
on German public sector debt rose 
yesterday from 6.06 per cent to 6.12 
per cent As the German yield is 
widely regarded as the proxy for the 
“true” international rate of interest, 
this suggests rising rather than foiling 
rates.

Better returns on 
bigger buildings 


Big is beautiful, Debenham 
Tewson & Chinnocks, tin 
chartered surveyor, says in its 
analysis of the 106 properties 
worth more than £10 millioa in 
Investment Property Data- 
banks'^ portfolio. 

Large properties show bet- 
ter yields than small bnOdxogs, 
the researchers say. Last year, 
properties worth more than 
£10 million showed a total 
retain of 11.2 per cent, com- 
pared with $.7 per cent for 
smaller buildings. 

Debenham Tewson says the 
potential for increased returns 
exists hot the investor most 
pot his money Into larger 
bondings. This brings the 
argranent to the subject of 
seliffisg securities in huge 
buildings to allow several 
investors to boy them.

to. find space- Competitive 
tenders to buy leases on scarce 
City space are the order of the 
day in a market which is going 
through an unprecedented 
bull phase. 

The latest developers to 
benefit from the tendering 
which has been going on for 
months in the Square Mile, 
are MEPC and Norwich 
-Union, the insurance 
company. 

Their' development is at I 
Liverpool Street, on the City 
fringes and they have let the 
37.000 sq ft of space to a 


thought that tendering will 
result in Norwich Union 
achieving rents of £32.50 a sq 
ft at Moriey House, Holboro 
Viaduct, near the insurance 
company’s Plumtree Court in 
Shoe Lane: 

Plumtree Court was devel- 
oped and sold by Trafalgar 
House when there was little 
interest in the Holborn office 
market and Norwich Union 
bought the investment at a 
keen price. 

But times have changed and 
there is rental growth in the 
area now, based on the mount- 
ing needs of professional 
firms, themselves caught up in 
Big Bang fever. 

The chance to redevelop 
Holborn and Fleet Street after 
the move by national news- 
papers to Docklands and else- 
where has come at just the 
right time to catch the market 

The lack of space in the 
Square Mile means that 
boundaries are being redrawn 
rapidly. 

Holborn is benefiting from 
this process and newspaper 
propneters look like being the 
new developers in the area. 

The market is waiting to see

TEMPUS 


Reed reaps rewards 

of ratio naliz ation 


The Daily Telegraph’s 
printing site has been sold for 
development already while 
News international has plans 
for Bouverie Street and its 
surroundings. The Daily Mail 
is likely to move to Kensing- 
ton High Street leaving scope 
for its valuable site to be 
redeveloped. 

But developers, anxious to 
supply the kind of offices 
demanded by financial 
corporations, are looking not 
only at alternative locations — 
they are intent on redevelop- 
ing buildings only 20 years old 
in the Square Mile itself. 

MEPC had good news this 
week when the City of London 
Corporation's planning 
committee gave its blessing to 
the blowing up of Lee House 
on London WalL The 1960’s 
office block was acquired with 
MEPCs purchase of the Eng- 
lish Property Corporation 
portfolio for £112.5 million 
last year. 

MEPC plans to build 
300,000 sq ft of offices on the 
site in a scheme which will be 
worth considerably more than 
the developer paid for the 
whole of the EPC portfolio. 

The agreement by the City 
Corporation to allow Lee 
House to be demolished gives 
MEPC the edge on seven or 
eight rival plans for London 
Wall in the fight to be the first 
to pick up tenants whose space 
needs are still unsatisfied. 
Unlike many of the other 
redevelopments proposed at 
London Wall, MEPC does not 
have to buy out existing 
tenants and leases which can 
be a time consuming and 
expensive exercise. 


A strategy of reorganization 
and rationalization is starting 
to pay off for Reed Inter- 
national, the paper and 
publishing group. Interim re- 
sults show pretax profits up 
57 per cent to £80.2 million 
on turnover down 5 per cent 
to £923 million. 

Comparisons are distorted 
by the treatment of the 
group's pension fund contri- 
butions. Last year, Reed de- 
cided to use its pension fund 
surplus to increase employee 
benefits and reduce its own 
contributions. 

This resulted in a saving 
last year of almost £14 mil- 
lion, taken in the second half. 
This year, Reed is spreading 
the benefit to the profit-ond- 
loss account across the two 
half years. If first-half results 
for last year are adjusted for 
the reduced pension contri- 
butions, group profits would 
rise by 39 per cent 

While all sections of the 
business did well in the first 
halfi British publishing and 
European paper operations 
did especially wefl. British 
publishing was one of the 
main beneficiaries of the 
rationalization programme, 
and, m addition, business 
adverting improved. 

European paper operations 
enjoyed a sustained and good 
performance from British 
mills. Demand in Britain was 
steady, but lower production 
costs, seen last year, contin- 
ued into the first half of this 
year. 

Progress in Europe for thfe 
second half, compared with 
last year, is likely to bea little 
slower, partly because last 
year was particularly buoy- 
ant 

Reed is paying for Tech- 
nical Publishing, its latest US 
acquisition, this weekend. 
The $250 million (£170 mil- 
lion) consideration will dou- 
ble group debt, but borr- 
owings will remain a modest 
29 per cent of capital em- 


ployed, and the interest cover 
wiD be above the group’s 
minimum target of 6 times. 

Profits from Technical 
Publishing will do little more 
than cover financing costs in 
the second hal£ 

Reed is expected to make 
pretax profits of £180 million 
in the full year. Yesterday's 
announcement took the share 
price to 29 Ip, up 40p, leaving 
the shares on a prospective 
multiple of 1 1 .8. Most of the 
steam has probably gone out 
of the price in the short term.

al to the AB social merely by doing more of the 


appeal to the AB social 
groups while keeping its orig- 
inal customers — seems to be 
paying off 

The figures for the half year 
to August 9 speak for them- 
selves. Group turnover was 
up by 6-6 per cent to £1.7 
billion. 

Inflation was a mere 2 per 
cent, giving a volume gain of 
11 per cent, of which 6 per 
cent was attributable to new 
stores and 5 per cent to higher 
sales through the other stores. 

Pretax profit jumped by 40 
per cent to £65.4 millioa, a 
combination of higher opma- 
ting margmsand a £3 million 
increase in interest receivable 
to £8.7 million. Net margins 
rose from 3.1 per cent to'an 
impressive 4. 1 percent— still 
a long way from Sainsbury, 
whose maigins are more than 
5 per cent, but the gap is 
dosing. 

Four stores have been 
opened so far this year and 
another seven will be opened 
by the year-end, increasing 
the total selling area to 
432^00 square feet 

The company is also plan- 
ning to redevelop its head 
office in Cheshunt, Hertford- 
shire, bringing its scattered 
functions into a single pur- 
pose-built office at a cost of 
between £20 million and £25 
million. This is likely to take 
two years, beginning in 
March. 


The second half has begtm 
satisfactorily rather than bril- 
liantly but the chairman, Ian 
MacLaurin, is expecting a 
bumper Christmas. The mar- 
ket is looking for pretax 
profits between £150 million 
and £155 million, putting the 
shares on a fairly full prospec- 
tive multiple of 19. 

Next 


As the retailing success story 
tof the 1980s, Next's record 
speaks for itself Since 1982, 
pretax profits have septupled 
to more than £27 million. 
However, increased com- 
petition and the relative 
sophistication of its “hfe- 
styte” retailing concept is 
making it difficult to grow 


Next is meeting this chal- 
lenge in two ways. First, it is 
segmenting the retail market 
and secondly, it has gained 
retailing synergy by merging 
with Grattan. 

The 230 women’s wear 
outlets have been split into a 
cforeic Next Collection sad a 
more vibrant Next Too l 
T here are plans to divide the 
men’s chain similarly. Lin- 
gerie and shoes have been 
identified as important 
growth areas while, next au- 
tumn, op to 40 children's 
dothes shops will be taunch- 

Sales of accessories are well 
established and home fur- 
nishing is holding its ground. 
The potential for this latter 
type of retailing appears to be 
limited, given the d emand s 
on space. 

Next has the ability to 
identify a retailing concept 
while Grattan has the infor- 
mation rfarahase and admin- 
istrative systems to use these 
concepts to best advantage- 

There is considerable scope 
to revitalize home shopping 
by enhancing the presenta- 
tion and design of goods. 

Any sales increases after 
the launch of a venture 
known as the Next Home 
Shopping Offer in 1987 roll 
be genuine add-on business 
since it roll not duplicate the 
retail outlets' products. There 
are opportunities also to seg- 
ment tire catalogue market 

Next is changing its year- 
end so that it roll report 
figures for a 17-month period 
to die end of January 1988. 
However, taking a theoretical 
12-month period to the end 
of August 1987, profits 
should come oat on the right 
side of £60 million. 

The sales area by this stage 
should increase 26 percent to 
900,000 sq ft. Capital expen- 
diture win be more, than £20 
million. 

On earnings per share of 
1 6p, the shares are on a 30 per 
cent premium to the sec- 
tor.Next has not yet dis- 
appointed its fens and it does 
not look as though it will start 
doing so this year.

Impetuosity boro of youth 
could be seen as the reason for 
Europe's plastics industry 
finding itself in rather un- 
dignified disarray in ihe late 
1970s and early 1980s. 

Plunging demand and gross 
overcapacity followed .the sec- 
ond oil crisis and, sub- 
sequently, the industry had to 
pay dearly for its earlier 
pluming and commercial 
shortco ming s. 

Today, the industry is on 
more stable footing. Much of 
tbe over-capacity that existed 
m 1980 has been removed 
painfully and expensively, al- 
though the financial margins 
being achieved remain inad- 
equate to justify major invest- 
ment in plastics, or ' in 
petrochemicals in general 

Plastics is still a relatively 
young industry. Although, 
historically, it can be traced 
bade to die I9tb century, the 
industry as we know it today 
only dates back about 50 
years. 

Materials such as poly- 
ethylene (or polythene, as it is 
often termed from the original 
IQ trademark), polystyrene 
and PVC (polyvinyl chloride) 
enjoyed steady commercial 
success in the 1960s with 
double digit growth raxes the 
norm as they replaced tra- 
ditional materials in many 
applications and created new' 
versions of old products. 
Packaging and building were 
the two key growth areas. 

Buoyed by this success, 
Europe's chemical companies 
embarked on wide-ranging 
investment programmes for 
petrochemicals, of which plas- 
tics was only a part. 

With growth rates of at least 
10 per cent in Europe seem- 
ingly assured, plus the poten- 
tial for deep sea exports, 
plants sprang up in most 
countries. Indeed, there were 
worries at the time whether 
industry would be able to 
meet future demand. 

Sadly, planning and com- 
mercial implementation of 
strategies proved distinctly

Boon for car designers 


Tbe amount of plastics used in 
a car is put at around 1761b. 
Some cars use more: the Audi 
100 incorporates' nearly 3201b, 
the Citroen BX at least 1981b. 

Now tbe plastics industry is 
seeking to nse the material 
more widely for body panels 
and nnder-the-bounet 
applications. 

Vehicle interiors are pretty 
well saturated with plastics, 
ranging from methane foam 
with nylon upholstery for seat- 
ing to instrument cowls, door 
handles, Etsdas, lock mecha- 
nisms and roof finings. 

The virtues of plastics in 
these applications include 
lightness, corrosion-resis- 
tance, seif colonring, textur- 
ing, paintability, economy to 
nse and the ability to produce 
complex shapes in one 
operarion. 

As car designers become 
more aware .of roe benefits of 
plastics they are switching a to 
designing to the material in- 
stead of merely adopting a 
metal replacement approach. 

The rapid acceptance of 
plastics by die motor industry 
says for the inherent 

virtues of tbe material. Once 
proven, it often sweeps the 
board. Nylon radiator header 
tanks and polypropylene air- 
cleaner housings are good 
examples. 

A common link today is a 
need for higher temperature 
performance and inherent 
strength. Thus, there are 
mores towards what are often 

termed the engineering plas- 
tics; higher cost materials but 
still able to prorate economic 
attractiveness to motor com- 
panies because of their ability 
to be processed quickly, to 
offer the potential for parts 
consolidation, to main t ain 
dimensi onal tolerance and to 
eliminate finishing operatfons- 

Compared to steel and cast 


iron, engineering plastics can 
be energy savers to production 
and problem solvers to parts 
design and —riutot . 

. One good example of co- 
operation between materials 
supplier fend car manufacturer 
is the Rover 800. A two-year 
co-ordination and develop- 
ment programme between the 
Austin Rover Group and 
Bayer, the West German en- 
gineering plastics specialist, 
saw its fulfillment to the Rover 
800 incorporating 751b of 
Bayer’s materials to 25 dif- 
ferent applications. 

At tiie end of the day, it 
probably does not matter to 
ARG that the front and rear

divided into horizontal or

Robotized production is

sion just as it has car assembly

European consumption, 12.5 
million tonnes, is a<y pnniw i 


for by the commodity plastics 
— the five bulk thermoplastics, 
low and high density poly- 
ethylene, polypropylene, PVC 
and polystyrene. Consump- 
tion for these materials rose by 
4 per cent in 1985, with the 
level of 1 per cent above GNP 
being seen as the standard to 
the end of this decade. 

Tbe PVC market has been 
decidely sluggish across Eur- 
ope for several years, the 
building industry in most 
countries bang a severely 
depressive influence. 

Polyethylene outlets con- 
tinue to improve but with 75 


highly viable areas that will 
quickly shew any defects. 

Vertical panels such as front 
and rear wings and door 
panels have a degree of intrin- 
sic stiffness because of their 
shape, though stiD requiring 
short-term stability to high 
temperatures. 

Glass reinforced polyester 
(the toyman's Fibreglass) in 
tbe form of a hot press 
- moulded sheet nouldfog com- 
pound (SMC) has excellent 
possibilities for bonnets and 
boot lads. Already it has been 
proved on the Citroen BX 
bounetand tailgate, the latter 
to tbe form of a special hmg 
glass fibre injection moulding 
compound (ZMC) developed 
by two French companies. 

Engineering thermoplastics 
such as nylon and poly- 
carbonate can meet vertical 
body panel criteria. Such 
materials are easily injection 
moulded, but other contend- 
ers, such as reaction injection 
moulded (RIM) poly- 
urethanes, with and without 
some form of glass reinforce- 
ment, have yet to meet foil 
scale plastics production 
requirements. 

Also, there are other con- 
cepts, such as sandwich 
mo aiding of polypropylene to 
which a foamed cue material 
is encapsulated to a solid 
exterior grade of the same 
resin in a one-shot process. 

Tbe 01-foted De Lorean 
gnO-wtoged car was an ex- 
cellent example of plastics 
technology bong used to an 
innovative manner. Utilizing 
know-how licensed from Lotos 
Cars, the De Lorean resin- 
based composite body struc- 
ture was produced to two 
halves at up to 85 units a day. 

Under-the-bonnet plastics 
composents will be expected to 
perform under conditions of 
sustained load and high tem- 
peratures. That the materials 
are available to achieve this 
performance standard has al- 
ready been proved to the US 
where the virtually aO-plastks 
engine bmlt by Polimotor 
showed a 60 per cent weight 
saving over a conventional 
engine and proved saffiriendy 
robust to be used to perfor- 
mance car races. 

Even if tbe economics of 
switching to plastics engines 
were right, whkh they are not, 
there would inevitably be cau- 
tion in moving away from

tics parts do look of interest. 

Polymeric valve springs

ready some of the more exotic 
high temperature thermoplas- 
tics such as potyethersulphone 
and polyphenylene sulphide 
have proved thar worth for 
use as bearings and thrust 
washers, taking advantage of 
properties snch as low wear 
and friction plus good chemi- 
cal resistance. 1

per cent of low density ma- 
terial consumption being in 
film applications, it could be 
argued that the industry has 
made life particularly difficult 
for itself by bringing into the 
market a new variant to linear 
low density (linear referring to 
the structure) which has al- 
lowed many film applications 
to be downgauged by up to 50 

per ceoL 

The shining star in this 
commodity firmament is 
polypropylene, which has en- 
joyed a 10 per cent growth in 
each of the last three years and 
now has a market of two 
million tonnes. 

Polypropylene (PP) has 
substantial markets in film 
and fibre applications (every- 
thing from strapping to carpel 
backing) and is finding many 
new moulding applications 
ranging from car bumpers to 
the latest squeezy tornaio 
ketchup bottles. 

It has been the commodity 
plastics business which has 
been of great concern to 
European producers. Even 
with the rationalization that 
has taken place (which was a 
much more difficult process 
than in the US, for example, 
because of the more complex 
integration of plants that has 
existed in Europe), the output 
of the industry had a value in 
1985 of DM 1 00 billion. 

This contributes signifi- 
cantly to tbe trade balance in 
Europe and gives direct 
employment to some 200,000 
people. 

In addition, there is (he

BaSF, Hoechst and Chem-

the largest commodity plastics

probably Europe's leader in

Companies from West Ger- 
many are becoming increas-

that image still lingers in many 
minds.

MONTEFLUOS STAKES $ 60 MILLION IN 
FLUOROCHEMICALS. 

As from today, the action for fluorochemical specialties is at 
Spinetta Marengo - just an hour's drive from Milan's Linate 
Airport. Here Montefluos has built a new chemical complex to 
satisfy world demand. From here it plans to meet the requirements 
of electronics,automotive, aerospace , telecom, nuclear and related 
fast-moving industries . Montefluos's current 
successes in the fluorochemical 
field have led the company to 
invest over $ 60 million in this 
new venture . 

It is a question of thinking big, 
building for the future and using 
all of the company's human and 
technical resources. 

It was the same resources that 
made and maintained Montefluos 
a world leader in this field. From 
now on such brands as Fomblin, 

Tecnoflon and Algoflon will be 
produced at Spinetta Marengo. 

This large and fully integrated 
complex has been designed around 
highly sophisticated proprietary 
technologies to provide maximum flexibility. 

Spinetta Marengo is the biggest and most up-to-date European 
fluorochemical production centre and is fully equipped to meet all 
of the needs of end-users worldwide. 

NEW TECHNOLOGIES, NEW ALGOFLON IMPROVEMENT. 

A new Algoflon production unit comes on stream shortly 
having an initial capacity of over 4.000 tonnes p.a. 

In addition to existing products, the new unit will supply new 
types of PTFE (including coagulated Algoflon DFC powders for 
the production of cable sheaths and piping , aqueous dispersions, 
filled powders and thermo -processable fluoroplastomers). The new 
Algoflon range is an end-user's dream: more extensive applica- 
tions, higher productivity, lower processing costs giving equal or 
better quality end-products. 



FOMBLIN - THE HIGHLIGHT OF MONTEFLUOS 
RESEARCH TAILORED FOR END-USER REQUIREMENTS. 

Fomblin: a perfluorinated fluid having outstanding properties 
matching the increasingly sophisticated needs of advanced 
technologies in industries such as electronics, aerospace and 

nuclear. 

Fomblin is a leading product in 
the technologically advanced eco- 
nomies of the US, Japan and 
Western Europe . 

This product was specifically 
created to exceed the tight specifi- 
cations of end-users . 

Thanks to its new production 
facility, Montefluos can now 
meet the ever-increasing 
demands both in quantities and 
new types. 

The Spinetta Marengo facility, 
in conjunction with the estab- 
lished fluoropolymer plants, 
including the new production 
unit at Chiba (Tokyo), will serve the global market. 

PRODUCT RESEARCH AT MONTEFLUOS -A UNIQUE 

APPROACH. 

At Spinetta Marengo, Montefluos has concentrated a team of 
400 specialists all deeply involved in product research and appli- 
cations. The team is equipped with the most modem and sophisti- 
cated systems for analysis, polymerization and simulation of even 
the most severe end-use conditions. 

Montefluos teams have one objective in view: to improve perfor- 
mance and cost-effectiveness . 

Spinetta Marengo, Alessandria, Italy, is where all the new 
action is as far as fluoropolymers are concerned. And from there, 
reaching out worldwide. The message is that if you are using or* 
planning to use fluoropolymers, the name is Montefluos and the 
place is Spinetta Marengo . 

The Fluoropolymer Valley. 


TECNOFLON: THE BIGGEST EUROPEAN 
FLUOROELASTOMER PRODUCTION FACILITY NOW 
READY FOR END-USERS WORLDWIDE. 

Tecnoflon is already a highly successful fluoroelastomer and 
has an even more exciting future. The new Tecnoflon production 
facility will come on stream with an initial capacity of 2.000 
tonnes p.a. It is a complete cycle facility ranging from polymeriza- 
tion to finishing with the built-in option of multiple production 
runs. In addition to producing established products with an ever 
widening range, emphasis will be placed on new peroxide curable 
types. Flowability, speed of cure, easy mould release, low compres- 
sion set and improved thermal and chemical resistance, these are 
the properly combinations which have made Tecnoflon such a 
success today and which will be developed further in response to 
continuous industry feedback.

The packaging market ac- 
counts for at least 25 percent 
of plastics consumption in all 
European countries. In many 
usage is put at around 33 
per cent, or one third of per 
capita demand. 

.Despite the entrenchment 
01 plastics in the packag in g 
sector, many new develop- 
ments are now coming to the 
marketplace which will re- 
inforce their position in 
comparison with traditional 


paper and board. 

In addition, the majority of 
wen-proven applications con- 
tinue to grow, though mod- 
estly in most instances. 

. Each European country has 
its standard uses for plastics 
and packaging, but there are 
notable variations. For exam- 
ple, the use of PVC bonks in 
France has always been higher 
than elsewhere because of the 
nation's devotion to wine and 
bottled waters. 

The UK. by cont rast, saw 
the boom in the PET bottle for 
carbonated drinks, following 
its big success m the US. 

In just a few years the 
market for bottles made from 
PET, or polyethylene tere- 
phthalate to give it its correct 
desig n a t ion, has grown to 700 
million in the UK. This 1985 
figure was up from 570 mil- 
lion in 1984 in 12 months 

Fastest-growing 
plastic packaging 

which saw the one- and two- 
litre sizes grow in consump- 
tion terms by 30 per cent 

Growth of at least SO per 
cent in the market is expected 
by the end of this decade. 

Improved processing tech- 
nology and material grades 
have made PET, since 1979, 
the fastest-growing plastic for 
packaging applications of aD 
time. The key to this growth 
has been m the exploitation of 
its unique set of properties. 

These indude: high-impact 
strength at tight weight, with 
resistance to stress cracking 


extremely good barrier prop- 
erties, with almost complete 
food-packaging approval; 
exceptional clarity and 
aesthetics; excellent chemical 
resistance; high purity; ex-' 
treme organoleotic 
performance: 

The PET bottle is primarily 
used for carbonated drinks in 
both Europe and the US. It 
has contributed to significant 
growth in the soft drinks 
market and now is being used 
for packaging wines, beer, 
cider, spirits and wat&s. The 
UK take-home beer trade has 
already been penetrated to a 
level of 18 per cent by PET 
packs. 

The success of wine in PET 
bottles for airlines has led to 
wine-packaging growth in It- 
aly. Spain and France; while 
some German wine producers 
use the material for export 
business. 

Sizes may range from a five- 
litre bottle in Italy down u> a 
175ml container for in-flight 
use: In continental Europe too 
the UK lead with packaging of 
edible oils in PET has been 
followed in Belgium, France; 
and Switzerland. Fur- 
growth is expected at tin:

How-moulding of PET 
is not limited to bottles, fat the 
US, five-gallon beer spheres 
are m«A» in the material, 
while in the UK. a five-gallon 
chemical container was 
launched earlier tins year. 

Also, particularly m Japan, 
there have been prov en uses of

materi al proving to 
have tremendous versatility in 


tions. In oriented film form

came from OPPs replacement 
of the cellulose fibn market. 


Engineering plastics can be 
described as a special group of 
materials that combine 
strength, stillness, heal resis- 
tance and toughness to per- 
form as well, or better than, 
metals in demanding mechan- 
ical applications. 

The five major materials in 
the marketplace, all thermo- 
plastics, are the nylons, 
acetals, thermoplastic poly- 
esters, polycarbonate mid 
modified polyphenylene erode 
compositions, though mater- 
ials such as ABS (acrylonitrile 
butadiene styrene) and filled 
grades of polypropylene do 
meet some of the application 
criteria. 

In addition, there is a range 
of more exotic, more expen- 
sive polymers characterized 
by their ability to mai n tain 
performance levels at higher 
operating temperatures. 

In the mid-1960s, engineer- 
ing thermoplastics had re- 
placed only 2 per cent of 
metals and applications where 
they were technically suited. 

By 1980, this penetration had 
increased to 8 per cent and by 
the year MOO, Du Pont, a 
world leader in the supply of 
these materials, believes that 
20 or even 30 per cent of this 
metal replacement opportu- 
nity will have been achieved. 

Market breakdown for en- 
gineering thermoplastics in 
Europe is considered to be 
electronic (36 per cent), auto- 
motive (23 per cent), building 
(9 per cent), packaging (5 per 
cent) and miscellaneous (27 
per cent). Up to 1990 this 
picture is not expected to 
rhang e dramatically, though 
the automotive share is likely 
to grow to at least 25 per cent. 

The market analyst Frost & 

Sullivan believes the Euro- 
pean market this year will be 
valued at $2.72 billion, rising 
to nearly $3.6 billion by 1990. 

On a weight basis, gams will 
average 4.4 per cent, from 
almost 920,000 tonnes to 
952,000 tonnes in. 1986 and 
more than 1.1 billion tonnes 
by 1990. In the period 1984- 
1990, the automotive market 
will have accounted for more 
than 100,000 tonnes of tile 
market’s increase: 

In the view of Do Pont, 
suppliers of engineering 
thermoplastics still have to 
make considerable effort in 
terms of general education 
and design data. The company mgfoday. 
sees many “metal bashers” The er

While an aB-ptetics bike is 
unlikely, re-creation of the 
current cycle would allow 30- 
40 per cent ofthe parts to be in 
plastics, with additional bene- 
fits in terms of minimum 
maintenance and fashion styl- 
ing. Tbe plastics wheel as used 
on tbe BMX bike, for exam- 
ple, offers better performance 
than its metal counterpart, 
especially where rough han- 
dling takes place. 

The trend in bikes is also 
likely to move into motor 
cycles, in a very si g nific ant 
way. " 

Despite the potential in tbe 
an to sector, tbe etectrical/eleo- 
tronks market is Kk ety to 
remain the most Important 
market in the foreseeable fu- 
ture. Companies such as Bayer

future in the

In the market for business 
machine housings, as in many 
others, tbe choice of pl as tic s, 
and what type of plastics, very 
much relates to the cost of the 
finished product, not just the 
cost ofthe basic raw material. 

The polycarbonate compact 
disc was a completely new use 
and, despite ah the growth and 
potential seen for engineering 
thermoplastics, there are not

still in positions of powerful 
authority among its cus- 
tomers, though foe position is 
gradually changing. 

Although the name of the 
game with the car industry is 
always cost effectiveness, with 
designers wanting better 
performance at the same “or 
lower" cost, the outlook for 
plastics in foe automotive 
market is seen as more pos- 
itive than -at any time in foe 
last 10 years. 

Other forms of transport 
also are becoming increasingly 
attractive; foe bicycle market 
today accounts for around 
5,000 tonnes of engineering 
plastics in Europe and this 
could quite easily grow to in 


enormous market in- 
crease for engineering plastics 
will not be achieved by the 
introduction offoe new won- 
der resins. Certainly, some of 
the newer polymers, such as 
those based on polysulphone 
chemistry, have an exciting 
future, but the real growth wfil 
materialize from the improve- 
ment of existing plastics. This 
wifi be achieved by compos- 
ites, blends and alloys. 

A second area undergoing 
development effort, and 
where plastics are seen to rave 
an exciting future, is m high 

temperature composites based 
on new resign systems. The 
aerospace industry has been 
using the epoxide 
resm/fcarboo fibre composite 


for some 20 years and the 
market is considered to have 
grown by 20 per cent a year for 
foe last lOyears. 

However, this type of 
composite based on a thermo- 
setting (non-melting once 
cured), resin is sera to have 
imitations in the long term, 
providing scope for new 
thennoplasiic resins, such as 
l£Fs Vtcteex PEEK or poly- 
ether-etfaerketone. 

Compared with traditional 
thennoset composites, KTs 
APC-2 composite based on 
PEEK (32 . per cent) and 
carbon fibre (68 per cent) 
offers improved fracture 
toughness and damage tol- 
erance performance. Accord- 
ing to ICl, this composite is 
regarded as the thermoplastic 
benchmark for foe aerospace 
industry.

said to be m creasingl y favour- 
able in its opinion of AFC-2,

. Tbe - market for advanced 
co mp o si tes is forecast to 
achieve a 15 per cent annual 
growth rate for the next 10 
years. .Worldwide, the busi- 
ness is considered lobe worth 
in excess of $1 billion of

Tbe centre of activity has 
been the aircraft/aerospace 
sector where advanced- comp- 
osites have con trued to replace 
p rimary and -secondary metal . 
struc tur es ranging from nose 
cooes and wing components 
to engine parts- mid interior 
construction components. 

Tbe key to growth has been 
foe btgh strength-to-weight ra- 
tio ofthe composite structures 
which provide for weight 
reductions, which in turn 
furnish “fad savings, plus in- 
creased range and manoeuvr- 
ability of aircraft and missile.

to be 80 per cent in

. This substitution took a big 
. leap forward .when crisps and

At next month's K*86 ex- 
hibition in Dusaddor£ the 


German company Kropp 
Kauiex will be demonstrating 
the production of a six-layer, 
10-litre container. Also 
hi g hli ghting a similar process 
for packs in up to six layers 
wDl be US company Umloy, 
which has a sister company,

layer packs can be used for 
many diverse products, 
including food, chemicals, 
medical goods and cosmetics, c 
They highlight how plastics 
technology is advancing rap- 
idly in certain quarters, 
presenting a further compet- 
itive challenge to the likes of 
the tin can and glass jar. 


Many packaging develop- 
ments are hastened by the 
need to establish products that 
meet the changing lifestyle of 
the consumer. The shopper 
today demands fresher and 
more convenient foods which 
often goes hand-in-hand with 
stronger but lighter packaging 
for consumer goods. 

Bag-in-the-box packaging of 
liquids is one example. This 
application uses a plastics 
film, often nylon, laminated 
or co-extruded with a metal- 
iked foil. 

Attention has also been 
focused on the growth of 
modified-atmosphere packag- 


lndividua! markets fluc- 
tuate but new outlets still 
appear. In 1985 there was 
substantial growth in stretch 
film for pallet-wrapping, an 
application for which LLDPE 
is ideally suited. 

Increasingly, films are being 
tailored to meet specific 
application requirements. 
This, can be achieved by using 
polyethylene mixtures or. 
more sophisiicatcdly. by 
producing film co-extrusions 
based on the low and high 
density polyetbylenes. 

To tbe end-consumer it 
matters little, but in practice 
there will be a better film 
product, tailored to meet foe 
application requirements, 
based on optimum utilization 
of the film's thickness (or 
gauge) and often leading to 
cheaper, more competitive 
packaging. 

If there were any doubts 
that plastics do not meet that 
criteria they are surely refuted 
by foe way manufacturers of 
glass, metals, paper and board 
are cutting back their produc- 
tion operations, while usually 
being forced to raise prices.

5TOa W therefore be to determine 


the objectives of the policy,, and 
how it will apply to current 
employees and those newly 
recruited. 

Companies cite children's 
schooling as the most frequent 
reason for resistance to moves by 
employees, according to a recent 
survey of leading UK companies' 
relocation policies conducted for 
Merrill Lynch Relocation 
Management International Ltd- 
Career distruption of a working 
spouse was mentioned almost as 
frequently. 

The importance of these two 
major “lifestyle’* issues confirms 
the need for assistance beyond 
traditional financial incentives for 
relocating staff. When these issues 
are left unanswered, resistance to 
moving increases- One in five 
companies interviewed for 
MLRMPs research said that the 
level of resistance to moving had 
increased during the past year. 
Banks and financial institutions 
reported significantly higher levels 
of resistance than other business 
sectors. 

Once an effective and efficiently 
administered policy has been set 


Companies 


must consider 


their employees’ 


reluctance to 


take up certain 


posts says 


Nicholas Troilo 



up. it is important that current 
personnel and potential employ- 
ees are clearly informed of the 
assistance available. Prompt and 
full answers to questions will 
determine the willingness of 
employees and job applicants to 
move. Increasing a candidate’s 
understanding of the policies, 
programmes and benefits avail- 
able is a vital component of 
recruitment when a move is 


involved, h helps minimize the 
negative impact caused by the 
uncertainty and insecurity asso- 
ciated with relocation. 

A well-defined relocation policy 
does not only attract qualified 
candidates. It also enables them to 
take up their new posts quickly 
and without excessive disruption 
of their private lives, thus 
maintaining productivity. Re- 
search by MLR MI has consis- 


tently shown that - companies 
consider this far more important 
than saving money, and yet 
through effective monitoring of 
policy direct costs are also 
controlled. 

By keeping in dose touch with 
the new employee, problems can 
be foreseen before they become 
serious. Ensuring the employee 
gets off to the right start increases 
the likelihood of a long-term 
successful stay with the company. 

Relocation policies cover a 
variety of expenses. These typi- 
cally indude solicitors' and estate 
agents' foes, stamp duty, house- 
hunting trips, removal expenses 
and disturbance allowances. The 
assistance offered to newly re- 
cruited employees is often not as 
extensive. The average cost of 


moving an employee now exceeds 

£ 10 , 000 . * 


Consequently, many 
companies recruit locally for all 
but the most senior level 
positions. 

However, moving employees 
through a variety of posts in 
different locations is often part of 
their career development, entail- 
ing the relocation of junior staff. 


Meeting business needs within 
geographic constraints is an im- 
portant part of personnel plan- 
ning. To accomplish this 
successfully, recruiting practice 
must be reviewed regularly and 
altered as necessary to meet 
company goals. It' is also im- 
portant to analyse the future needs 
of the organization, and then- 
implications on staff planning. 

The financial drain on a com- 
pany of 'poor recruitment mobil- 
ity and relocation policies is 
(considerable. The results include 
reduced productivity, the loss of 
valued employees and settling, for 
a second or third choice to fill a 
post, because the best candidate 
will not make the move involved. 
Ail these give rise indirectly to 
high costs. 

Maintaining productivity and 
profit levels requires the correct 
balance of assistance for employ- 
ees against cost. When companies 
formulate their relocation poli- 
cies, they focus on reducing 
aggravation for employees and 
maintaining their productivity 
during the relocation phase- At the 
same time, they need to relieve the 




director responsibility 
outside his expertise. Toachieve 

the correct balance. spead*ed 
knowledge and skills must be 
applied. 

It is. therefore, not surprising 
that the number of Bnushcom- 
panies using relocation 
tan ts has increased significantly 
during the past three yew***: 
penally in the service sectorand 
among companies moving 50 or 

more people per year. 

These uend-seiting organiza- 
tions are among Britain’s leading 
companies. They recognize that to 
attract the best candidate to u*e 
right job at the required location 
necessitates analysing lifestyle 
trends and responding to them. 

It is not surprising that such 
companies continue to attract the 
most qualified candidates through 
well planned strategies of em- 
ployee relocation and corporate 
mobility.

TWO FACTS THAT GOULD STEER YOU 


I mm • ! N d IWI TOTTiT 


The first is the quafity of our 
people. Successful business profess- 
ional often find that rapid career 
progression creates a decreasing intel- 
lectual challenge. As they outdistance 
their colleagues, growing frustration 
is encountered with the less than fertile 
minds around them. 

At Touche Ross opposite circum- 
stances prevail. You will be working in 
a team where colleagues are intellectual 
equals. Where constant challenge and 
achievement is a fact of fife, not an 
empty dream. Where problem-solving 
ideas are exchanged and refined until 
an exact solution evolves. 

This insistence on total profession- 
alism. supported by excellent training, 
has resitted in our management con- 
sultancy practice doubfing in size over 
the past two years despite ever in- 
creasing market competition. 


The second, is the quaity of our 
assignment work. It is wide-ranging, 
demanding, often dealing with highly 
complex situations. Our clients are 
mainly blue-chip companies who more 
often than not return with further pro- 
jects as a result of the successful con- 
clusion of the last 

We are at the forefront of the 
management consultancy business and 
ouropea in formal structure encourages 
rapid personal achievement.

HORIZONS 


A guide to 

career development 


Staying cool in the fast lane 


Although it is relatively 
easy to enter the road 
transport business, to 
make a company viable 
requires ingenuity and 
expertise. Roger Jones 
considers the challenge 
that confronts the 
transport manager 

“Diplomacy can be a challenging job, 
but no more so than any other. In fact, I 
would say that managing a transport 
office Is a much more exacting task.” 

This sentiment expressed years ago by 
a senior diplomat in a beleaguered Asian 
capital came back to me recently as I was 
sitting in the office of a road haulage 
contractor. While there were very few 
trucks in evidence, the place was a 
bewildering hub of activity. 

A driver phoned in to report a vehicle 
breakdown at Matlock. A customer 
enquired whether a load coukl be 
collected for Italy in three hours time. A 
Department ofTransport official arrived 
to check the firm's Tachograph cards, 
between interruptions the beleaguered 
traffic officer still had to find return 
loads for vehicles about to arrive at Fort 
William, Falmouth and Felixstowe. 

No doubt, similar scenes were being 

Good commercial acumen 
is of paramount importance 

enacted at the offices of a good many of 
the other 124,000 licensed truck op- 
erators up and down the country. If tins 
seems a lot of firms, one has to 
remember that 70 per cent of them are 
very small operations owning just one or 
two vehicles. 

It is, after all, relatively easy to gain en- 
try to the road transport industry. All 
you need is a second-hand truck and an 
operator's licence, you're in business. 
However, to make that business viable 
and successful requires ingenuity and 
expertise. And this is where the pro- 
fessional transport manager comes in. 

It is convenient to divide the industry 
into two categories. Firstly, there are the 
own account operators, whose interests 
are looked after by the Freight Transport 
Association. These are organisations 
such as supermarkets and breweries that 
maintain their own fleet of vehicles to 
distribute their goods. 

The other type of operator is the 
professional haulier who carries other 
companies' goods for a fee, and be is 
represented by the Road Haulage Associ- 
ation. Such firms can carry anything 
from tin-whistles to timber, and their 
profit is derived solely from the carriage 
of other people's goods. 



Keeping vehicle standards high is one responsibility of transport managers 
Some may specialise — in the carriage controlling a dispersed workforce o

operation is concerned primarily with 
the efficient distribution of goods. He 
has to optimise the routing of his 
vehides in order to save time and 
particularly fuel. (An articulated vehicle 
runs at six or seven mites to the gallon.) 
In some cases he (or she) might well 
decide it would be cheaper to call in an 
outside contractor. 

Apart from vehicle scheduling trans- 
port management can also email 
responsibility for vehicle maintenance 
and warehousing. And while large firms 
are starling to use computers to take the 
donkey work out of the day to day 
routine, in the final analysis it is the 
transport manager's judgement that 
court is. 

For the road haulage contractor there 
is the added necessity of makings profit 
Because margins are tiny, loads have to 
be costed very precisely and every effort- 
made to obtain an adequate rale. Once a 
journey has been arranged, the hauler 
has to find a customer close toa vehicle's 
destination in order to arrange a return 
load. 

“If I see an unladen trailer coming into 
this yard, it breaks my heart.” The 
managing director of the small but 
successful road haulage firm I was 
talking to. had good reason to express 
concern. In the competitive business of 
road haulage running your vehicles 
empty for long stretchy is the sure road 
to ruin. 

What son of qualities does a transport 
manager need? Man-management abil- 
ities are certainly of great importance, 
since the job entails motivating and 


There are few dull moments 
In this energetic line of work 

pie ted. Overtook one detail and your 
truck may not mak e its destination. 

The way into transport management is 
through the acquisition of the CPC 
(Certificate of Professional Com- 
petence), for which there is an examina- 
tion set by the Royal Society of Arts that 
covers ail the legislation relating to truck 
operation and more besides. The RSA 
recommends 65 direct teaching hours to 
prepare for the national road operations 
certificate, with a further 30 hours aogain 
competence in international operations. 

Courses are available up and down the 
country at colleges and other training 
establishments. More advanced courses 
are available at such centres as tin 
Ashbridge Centre for Transport Manage- 
ment, the North London Polytechnic 
and the East Warwickshire College of 
Further Education — to name but a few. 
The Road Transport Industry Training 
Board (Capitol House. Empire Way, 
Wembley) can provide foil details. 

Transport professionals as a whole 
seem to enjoy their work. “Once you’ve 
been in transport, you get bitten by the 
bug and can’t give it up,” an addict 
confessed to me. From what I can see 
there is rarely a dull moment in this line 
of business.

♦this extract from his ne w 
•book*, Nell Maefarlane 
g (above), Britain- s 
‘’Minister for Sport from 
1981 to 1985, reveals the 
intrigne and the 
■ in-fighting. 

alcolm Fraser, the 
former Prime Min- 
ister of Australia, is 
a member of wbat 
Australians call the 
squattocracy: the wealthy fanners 
of that country whose lineage is 
foag and distinguished. He has an 
, ■8000-acre property, which he 
Inherited from his father, situated 
in the merino and beef lands of the 
Western District of Victoria. 
v He became Liberal Prime Min- 
ister in 1973 and, during his eight 
years in office, he turned out to be 
*- somewhat surprisingly, consid- 
ering his patrician image — a fierce 
opponent of apartheid. He was 
responsible for maintaining 
Australia's hard line towards South 
Africa and, together with Mrs 
Indira Gandhi, of India, and Pierre 
Trudeau, of Canada, he was largely 
responsible for the shaping of the 
Glen eagles Declaration in 1977. 

■> That declaration, or commu- 
nique as it really was, followed a 
meeting of the Commonwealth 
heads of Government at the 
Gleneagles Hotel in Scotland. The 
meeting, attended by James Calla- ’ 
y ghan, as Prime Minister, and 
pavid Owen, as Foreign Secretary, 
agreed to "vigorously combat the 
evil of apartheid by withholding 
any form of support for. and by 
taking every practical step to 
discourage contact or competition 
b|’. our nationals with sporting 
organizations, teams or sportsmen 
fipra South Africa- ” 

-This 1977 Commonwealth state- 
ment on apartheid in sport was not 
a formal agreement. There were no 
signatories and it is not legally 
brndihg. It was a policy statement 
giving expression to the deep 
abhorrence of apartheid, particu- 
larly in sport, shared by the 
Commonwealth. 

It obliged Commonwealth gov- 
ernments to discourage their 
sportsmen and sportswomen from 
undertaking sporting contacts with 
* South Africa and was drafted in 
hfbad principle so as to allow 
individual governments discretion 
to fulfil their obligations, according 
ip their laws. Indeed, the statement 
read that it was ‘‘for each govern- 
ment to determine, in accordance 
with its laws, the methods by which 
ri might best charge these 
commitments”. 

Fraser's philosophy of leader- 
ship. I remember reading, was: 
•'No government can ever be 
loved The best that any politician 
can hope for, and should hope for, 
is respect for the decisions that he 
takes, for the policies that he seeks 
to; implement. Australians want a 
government that they believe will 
dp what is right, no matter how 




Leaders at odds over apartheid: Malcolm Fraser (above), and his New Zealand 
coaaterpart, Rohm Mnktoon (below), held contrasting views over tours to 
South Africa, snch as that by the English cricketer Graham Gooch (left) 



much flak you're going to get as a 
result of those decisions in the long 
term.” 

I have often wondered if the flak 
he received over his stance towards 
South Africa helped remove him 
from office in 1983. 

We first, met. at a reception 
during the 1982 Commonwealth 
Games at Brisbane. He got me into 
a corner and looking down from 
his height of 6ft 4in, he poked me in 
the chest with his finger. "Are the 
Brils with us?” he asked 

He was referring to a code of 
conduct and amendments to the 
constitution of the Commonwealth 
Games Federation, the effect of 
which would have been to make 
individual Commonwealth Games 
councils responsible for the con- 
duct of governing bodies of sports 
outside the Games. In other words, 
the Dogfish Games Council would 
be required to shoulder 
responsibility for, say, the actions 
of the Rugby Union, an autono- 
mous body over which it had no 
control and with which it had n’o 
connection. 

A meeting of the 
Commonwealth Games 
Federation was to be 
held a few days later 
with Australia and Ni- 
geria pushing hard for the adoption 
of alterations which represented 
what the Federation chairman. Sir 
Alexander Ross, described as a 
“major step forward for the 
Commonwealth stand against 
apartheid.” 

“So are the Brits with us!?” Fraser 
repeated 

“No,” I replied, “the Brits are 
not with you.” 

I explained that the British 
government in general, and I as 
Minister for Sport in particular, 
had no intention of trying to tell the 
English Commonwealth Games 
Council representative. Sir Arthur 
Gold, how to vote. 

“You know perfectly well,” J 
told him. “that, for example, 
British athletics cannot be held 
responsible for the conduct of 
rugby union teams or golfers, 
tennis players and cricketers- for 
that matter.” 

Fraser beckoned his Foreign 
Secreta ry, Andrew Peacock, and 


asked “Why are we supporting this 
if they aren’t?” 

Fraser, a great admirer of Mrs 
Thatcher and her style of govern- 
ment, seemed taken aback that 
England was not whole-heartedly 
behind the proposed change in 
constitution. He was acknowledged 
to be a morally upright man, but, of 
course, there were other more 
subtle reasons why Australia 
should be seen to be supporting a 
strengthening of the overall thrust 
of the Code of Conduct 

The first and most immediate, 
was that it was important to the 
country that the Brisbane Games 
were a success. A second, and less 
. public, reason was the impending, 
election of a successor to Sir 
Alexander Ross, who was retiring 
as chairman of the Commonwealth 
Games Federation, and Leslie 
Martyn, president of Australia's 
Commonwealth Gaines Associ- 
ation, was being pushed hard as an 
Australian successor. Thirdly, Fra- 
ser was preparing for a general 
election some months later and 
knew he was under pressure from 
the Labour Party. 

For the firk time in the 
Federation's history, there was to 
be an election to decide Ross’ 
successor. Previously, the outgoing 
chairman nominated the person to 
take his place, but there were six 
candidates to $o before the Bris- 
bane meeting, including Sir Roger 
Bannister, of England, Peter 
Heatly, of Scotland, and Leslie 
Martyn. In the event, Bannister 
and Martyn were well beaten, with 
the vote going to Heatly. 

At the meeting at which Heatly 
was elected, there was a two-thirds 
majority in fovour of a Code of 
Conduct and supporting constitu- 
tional amendments which related, 
according to Sir Alexander Ross, 
“not to inconsequential social 
occasions but to sporting contacts 
of the kind Commonwealth leaders 
set their feces against in the 
Gleneagles Declaration”. There 
were two interesting statraents 
made prior to the vote for a code 
that, in feet, was an informal 
agreement. 

The first came from Sir Arthur 
Gold, who subsequently did. not 
vote on the issue. “My abstention 
from any par t of the voting 


procedure is not due to any lack of 
persona] sympathy for the Code of 
the Gleneagles Declaration, or any 
wish to reject the code — but I seek 
your permission to make a state- 
ment to this meeting. 

“As chairman of the Common- 
wealth Games Council for Eng- 
land, 1 attend this general assembly 
as the servant of my council and, as 
their servant, my mandate is 
crystal clear. The English 
Commonwealth Games Council 
will, and does, accept responsibility 
for the full implementation of the 
philosophy of the Gleneagles 
Decaration in all those sports over 
which it has jurisdiction or 
^authority»_and will gjve.il .whole- 
hearted support I am not, how- 
ever, empowered to go beyond my 
mandate.” 

The second was from L. O. 
Adegbite, of Nigeria, who declared: 
“We of Nigeria would like it placed 
on record that we are unhappy with 
the modifications which have been 
made to some of the clauses agreed 
upon by the consensus at the 
meeting of September 27. They 
have had the effect of watering 
down some of the decisions in the 
Code of Conduct and some parts of 
the amendments to the constitu* 
lion that we all agreed upon last 
week." 

n other words, the code went 


too fer for English consump- 


I tion, not fer enough 
Nigerian and, at the end of 
the day, just as heads of 
government interpret the 
Gleneagles Declaration to suit their 
nations, so the leaders of Common- 
wraith sport will interpret the Code 
as they see fit. 

It was Robert Muldoon, the 
Prime Minister of New Zealand, 
who declared: “In the application 
of the Gleneagles Declaration, the 
cap will have to fit each nation.” 

The Australians had always been 
sensitive to the threat of a boycott 
by the black African nations, 
especially as Brisbane was formally 
made host city for 1982 during the 
1976 Olympics in Montreal Those 
Olympics had been hit by a boycott 
of African nations, led by Tan- 
zania, who had failed in a demand 
for the expulsion from the Olympic 
movement of New Zealand be- 
cause a rugby team from that 


nation had made a tour of South 
Africa. 

Earlier in 1976. Muldoon, a 
politician who didn't like to be 
pushed around by anyone, had 
won an election in New Zealand in 
which freedom for rugby players to 
tour without government interfer- 
ence had been a strong point. 

Not long afterwards, a tour to 
South Africa was announced by the 
All Blacks and events were com- 
pounded by riots in Soweto, the 
black township on the outskirts of 
Johannesburg, in which dozens of 
people died. 

Twenty-two nations failed to 
-take part in the Montreal opening 
ceremony, and. I know the Queen, 
was saddened and dismayed to see 
so many gaps in the parade of 
competitors and officials. 

During the build-up to the 
Brisbane Games, there had been 
recurring threats of boycotts as 
sportsmen and sportswomen from 
member nations bad sporting con- 
tact with South Africa. There were 
three tours which angered the 
Africans, particularly Chief Abra- 
ham Ortfia, of Nigeria, who had 
been involved with the Montreal 
boycott. 

In 1980 the British Lions rugby 
union team toured South Africa; 
the following year the South Af- 
rican Springboks toured New Zea- 
land; and in the spring of 1982, six 
months before Brisbane, a party of 
English cricketers formed a “rebeT 
tour to South Africa. 

There bad seemed to be some 
progress in easing the threat to the 
1982 Commonwealth Gaines and 
in re-establishing Britain’s 
commitment to the Gleneagles 
Declaration when a hammer blow 
was dealt by some of England's 
Test cricketers becoming part of an 
illegal tour to South Africa. Five of 
them had been on England's winter 
visit to India. When that tour 
ended, in mid-February, they had 
flown by devious means to South 
Africa. 

At the time, the duplicitous 
action — as I described it then, and 
since when 1 have had no reason to 
change my opinion — not only 
shook cricket's governing body, the 
Test and County Cricket Board, 
but also severely dented the reputa- 



tion of Britain within the 
Commonwealth. 

Within two years of the 1980 
British Lions rugby tour to South 
Africa, another group of British 
sportsmen was setting fool in the 
Republic. By luring five members 
of the current Test squad, plus 
former England Test and county 
players. South Africa had pulled on 
a considerable coup as well as 
making it appear to Common- 
wealth leaders, already suspicious, 
that Britain was continuing to give 
official support to sporting links 
with South Africa. 

I bad spoken to the TCCB. 
making it perfectly plain what I 
thought of the action of the players. 
I could understand, however, the 
dilemma in which the Board found 
itself. 

The previous August it had 
issued an edict warning players not 
to tour South Africa as a team, but 
the TCCB had to tread carefully 
because county cricketers are not 
tied to dubs in the dose season, 
and it had suffered, in cricketing 
parlance, an innings defeat four 
years earlier when an attempt had 
been made to ban players who 
joined Kerry Packer's world Se- 
ries. At the time, the term “re- 
straint of trade” had figured 
prominently in legal arguments, 
with disastrous effect to the TCCB. 

A nd if, for example, Gra- 
ham Gooch had not 
broken the law of the 
land (which he hadn't) 
and was not in breach of 
contract with his county, Essex 
(which he wasn't), how could he be 
punished? Indeed, could he be 
punished? 

The TCCB’s answer was to 
impose three-year England bans on 
the whole party, explaining that, 
first and foremost, the Board had 
to protect the financial security of 
the first-class game in this country 
in the face of pressure from, in 
particular, three members of the 
ICC — India, Pakistan and the 
West Indies. It had to pro lea the 
jobs of more than 300 county 
cricketers and where could it get 
the money, it asked, if India and 
Pakistan were to cancel their 1982 
tours to England? In effect, the 
bans were imposed not so much to 
punish the players but to appease 
the governments of the two Asian 
countries. 

Later in 1982, a party of Sri 
Lankans led by Bandula 
Wamapura, a former Test captain, 
toured South Africa, incurring 23- 
year bans by the Sri Lankan Cricket 
Board. 

Even more controversially, in 
January 1983, it was announced 
that a West Indian team under the 
captaincy of Lawrence Rowe was 
on ns way to South Africa. The 
rebel West Indians included play- 
ers of such stature as Collis King, 
Alvin Kallicharran and Sylvester 
Clarke, and world-wide reaction 
was predictable. 

All the players were banned from 
Test cricket, some from domestic 
cricket, and, outside the West 
Indies, there were hysterical re- 
actions from many, including Mal- 
colm Fraser. He demanded that all 
participants be banned from 
Australia, a blanket condemnation 
which turned out to be somewhat 
unfortunate because the West In- 
dian wicketkeeper, David Murray, 
happened to have an Australian 
wife and daughter and an Austra- 
lian home. 

During my four years in office, I 
tried to be a strong supporter of the 
importance of the established 
autonomy of sports organizations 
— international as well as domestic 
— and I always have been deter- 
mined to do what I can to sustain 
this and to resist pressure to use 
sport for political purposes. 

However, one must be realistic. 
Pressure groups might pretend 
otherwise, but politics are now an 
important factor on the inter- 
national sporting scene. Alas, none 
of us can ignore that feci of modem 
life.

Rookie 

award 

confirms 

talent 

By Mitchell Platts 

Josc-Maria Olazabol was yes- 
terday confirmed as Henry 
Cotton's Rookic-of-the-Year on 
the 1986 PGA European tour. 
The award came as no surprise 
following an astonishing season 
for the Spaniard, in which he 
won two tournaments and 
earned £136,773 in official 
money for second place behind 
his compatriot. Severiano 
Ballesteros, in the Epson Order 
of Merit. 

Cotton, the three-times Brit- 
ish Open champion, said: “I 
have studied Olazabal in action 
and he has impressed me as a 
young man whose outstanding 
talent promises a great future. 
Watching him develop his abil- 
ity will be evening for everybody 
involved in the world of golf.** 

The Rookie-of-tbc-Year 
award began in 1960 and 
Olazabal, who will receive a 
cheque for £2,000, follows in the 
footsteps of players such as 
Tony Jacklin, Sandy Lyte. Ber- 
nard Gallacber, Peter 
Oosterhuis, Sam Torrance, 
Mark James, Nick Faldo and 
Gordon Brand jun. 

Olazabal. aged 20. who is 
based in San Sebastian, initially 
came to prominence when he 
became ibe first man to com- 
plete the treble of the British 
amateur, youths, and boys*

EQUESTRIANISM 

Americans 
clinch 
first title 

Landover, Maryland (Reuter) 
— Katie Monahan produced two 
faultless rides on Brantag to win 
the Nations Cup and give the 
United States their first victory 
at ibe 28tb Washington inter- 
national horse show on Tues- 
day. The United States had only 
eight faults in the $10,000 
(about £7,000) event among 
teams, who each had four riders. 
Britain were second with 16 
faults 

Monahan, Katharine 
BurdsalL Lisa Tamopol and 
Anne Kursinski made up the 
American team - the fust all- 
women American squad in the 
Washington show's history. 
Burdsall and Tamapol also tad 
dear rounds over the 15-fence 
obstacle course, as did the 
British riders Nick Skelton, on 
Raffles Apollo, and Malcolm 
Pyrab. on Towerland's 
Anglezarke. 

Alexa Bell, of Canada, on 
Ferner and Lisa Carl sen, riding 
Kaluah. also had clear rounds. 
Hugh Graham, of Canada, (he 
leading international rider at the 
show, had the roughest two 
rounds of the evening, totalling 
16 faults, but they were not 
counted in the team total for the 
Nation's Cup. 

Earlier, John McDonnell, of 
the United States, rode So Dark

Queen’s Bench Division 


Law Report October 30 1986 


Court of Appeal 


Civil standard of proof in contempt proceedings 


•***< 




V/ 


West Oxfordshire District 
Council r Beratec Ltd 
Before Mr Justice Hutchison 
{Judgment October 20] 

The correct standard of proof 
to be applied in proceedings in 
relation to the breach of an 
undertaking given to the court 
was the civil standard, namely, 
proof on the balance of 
probabilities, but the court 
should not regard that burden as 
having been discharged unless 
the evidence adduced had been 
c-ogem and convincing. 

In cases where the relevant 
court order or undertaking 
given by the defendant was 
unqualified in its terms, and the 
plaintiff had proved that the 
under had not been complied 
wi|Ui. it was no answer to a 
rharge of contempt for the 
defendant to prove that itot- 
;o{npliance was casual or in- 
idvertcnt and accidental. 

Mr Justice Hutchison so held- 
n a reserved judgment in the 
Queen's Bench Division when 
ie found that a contempt of 
ourt had been established on 
he plaintiffs' notice of motion 
;ir a writ of sequestration 
L-amst the defendant 
ttmpany's wilful breaches of 
ndcrtiikings given before Mr 
uMicc McNeill, dated April 25. 
9Sb. inter alia, that it would 
ot cause on its premises ai 
rough ton Posgs. Oxfordshire, 
ay smell which might be or 


become a statutory nuisance or 
public nuisance. 

No writ of sequestration was 
issued, but his Lordship im- 
posed a fine of £4,000 on the 
company, ordered dial they 
should pay the plaintiffs' costs 
on an indemnity basis, and 
stated that the undertakings 
given before Mr Justice McNeill 
remained in fill! force. 

Mr Michael BelofT. QC and 
Mr Robin Campbell for the 
plaintiff council; Mr Stephen 
Desch. QC and Mr Anthony 
Clover for the defendants. 

MR JUSTICE HUTCHISON 
said that the defendants had 
been given planning permission 
in 1984 to set up and operate a 
process involving the 
biofermentaiion of waste prod- 
ucts io convert them into ani- 
mal foodstuff. 

Despite assurances from toe 
defendants before setting up the 
plant that there would be no 
smejl from the process, it was 
common ground that an objec- 
tionable level of smell emanated 
from- the plant 

The defendants contended 
that they had taken such mea- 
sures so that any nuisance there 
might have been had ceased- but 
the residents said that there was 
little if any improvement from 
the level of smells experienced. 

His Lordship said that the 
present proceedings tad been 
brought pursuant to Order 4o, . 


rule 5(1) of the Rules of the 
Supreme Court, and it was well 
established that an undertaking 
given to the court was equiva- 
lent to an injunction so that its 
breach might be punished in the 
same way as a breach of an 
injunction. 

Mr Beloff submitted that 
what was required was proof on 
the balance of probabilities sub- 
ject to the qualification that the 
more serious the allegation 
sought to be proved, and the 
more dire the consequences to 
the defendant if proved, the 
more cogent and . convincing 
would be the evidence the court 
required before finding against 

the defendant 

He relied upon R v Secretary 
of State for the Homo Depart- 
ment, Ex parte Khawaja ([ 1 984] 

AC 74, 1 J2)jwrLordScarman. 

Mr Desch contended that the 
rule was that the criminal 
burden of proof applied, relying 
In re Bramblevale Ltd 

S Ch 128, 137) per Lord 
tg, Master of the Rolls. 
His Lordship said that Mr 
Desch was right to say that the 
relevant burden could not be 
determined by the question 
whether, if the charge were 
proved, the defendant was going 
to be deprived of his liberty: in 
contempt cases, where an in- 
dividual defendant was con- 
cerned. there was always a risk 
that that consequence would 
follow, and sequestration for a 


corporate defendant was at least 
as serious a consequence. 

Accordingly, there had to be a 
single role which applied to all 
cases where breach of an order 
or undertaking was in question; 
there was force in Mr BeiofTs 
submissions that the present 
proceedings were civil proceed- 
ings despite the possibly serious 
consequences of an adverse 
finding, and that there was 
much to be said for refusing to 
introduce into civil proceedings 
the criminal burden of proof. 

The court, therefore, had to be 
satisfied on the balance of 
probabilities that the plaintiffs 
had established the breaches 
relied on, subject to the neces- 
sity for the evidence adduced 
being cogent and convincing in 
the highest degree before that 
burden of proof was discharged. 

If the evidence established 
that die defendant's activities 
were so conducted as to give rise 
to a nuisance, the question arose 
whether that evidence alone 
sufficed to establish that the 
defendants were in contempt of 
court, or whether some fault or 
wilful ness bad to be established. 

Mr Desch contended that the 
casual or accidental and un- 
intentional breach of an under- 
taking did not araoum to a 
contempi; Mr Beloff submitted 
that where, as in- ih£- present 
case, the undertaking was ab- 
solutely unqualified, any nui- 
sance, however arising. 


constituted a breach and nec- 
essarily amounted to a con- 
tempL 

He contended further that if 
the court found ibe breach 
mcnal or accidental and un- 
intentional that should be re- 
flected in the penalty. 

His Lordship said that it was 
plain from the judgment of Lord 
Russell of Killo wen. Lord Chief 
Justice, in Fairdough and Sons 
v Manchester Ship Canal Co No 
2 ((1897) 41 Sol J 225), lhai 
where the breach was casual or 
accidental and unintentional 
there was a contempt of court, 
but those features were grounds 
for mitigating the penalty. 

Prior to 1965 the relevant rule 
was Order 42, rule 31 which 
contained a reference to wilful 
disobedience which was not in 
the present rule. Order 45, rule 
5(1). . „ , 

In Lord Wilbcrforcc s speech 
in Heatons Transport (St Hel- 
ens) Lid v Transport and Gen- 
eral Workers Union ({1973) AC 
15, 108-1 10) there was support 
for foe contention that the plea 
that foe breach was casual or 
accidental and unintentional 
went to mitigation of penalty 
only. 

The editors of foe Supreme 
Court Practice 1985. in Note 
45/5/5. at p667. derived a 
different imerpretution from 
those cases and from Stancomb 
v Trowbridge UDC (fl'9l0l 2 Cb 
190. 194). 


In the latter case, which was 
concerned with an order in 
which appeared the word 
“wfl fully”, it was clear that the 
court regarded acts wfaich-werc 
casual or accidental and un- 
intentional as not amounting to 
wilful disobedience to the 
court's order. 

. His Lordship’s conclusion, 
which was consistent with the 
cases and with the omission 
from Order 45, rule 5(1), of the 
word “wilfully'', was that where 
the relevant court order or 
defendant's undertaking was ab- 
solutely unqualified in its terms 
(the plaintiff having proved the 
defendant's non-compliance 
with it), it was no answer to a 
contempt charge to prove that 
the non-compliance was casual 
or inadvertent and accidental. 

Those features, if proved, 
went only to the question of 
what if any penalty should be 
imposed. . 

Having considered foe ev- 
idence, fits Lordship concluded 
that the defendants had broken 
their unqualified undertaking 
on several occasions and were in 
contempt, that the breaches 
were nor casual or accidental 
and inadvertent, but that their 
conduct was nevertheless very 
different from that which or- 
dinarily attracted the epithet 
“contumacious”.

Scheme to avoid 
gains tax fails 


Magnavox Electronics Co Ltd 
(in i|«idatieg) v Hall (Inspec- 
tor of Taxes) 

A scheme designed to avoid 
liability to tax on chargeable 
gains accruing to a company on 
the sale of its factory premises 
did not achieve us purpose. It 
failed to ensure that the disposal 
look place under a contract 
made during an earlier account- 
ing period in which trading 
losses were available for set-onT 

Moreover, the scheme could 
not have succeeded in its pur- 
pose because the principles to 
counteract tax avoidance laid 
down by the. House of Lords in 
W. T. Ramsay Lid v Inland 
Revenue Commissioners m 982] 
AC 300) and in Fumiss v 
Dawson ([ 1984 ] AC 474) app- 
lied. 

The Court of Appeal (Sir John 
Donaldson, Master of foe Rolls, 
Lord Justice DiJlon and Lord 
Justice Cmom-Joimson) so held 
unanimously on October 13 
dismissing an appeal by foe 
company. Magnavox Electron- 
ics Co Ltd (in liquidation) from 
a decision of Mr Justice Nieholls 
in the Chanceiy Division (The 
Times. February 28. 1985; 
(1985] STC 260). 


LORD JUSTICE DILLON 
said that the company claimed 
that it was entitled under the 
provisions of paragraph 10(1) of 
Schedule 10 to the Finance Act 
1971 to set off its pre-liquida- 
tion trading losses against the 
rain from the sale of its Barking 
factory in a subsequent account- 
ing period. 

Mr Justice Nieholls had been 
cornea in holding that foe 
scheme entered into by the 
company after the initial 
purchaser’s failure to complete 
did not succeed in establishing 
that the original contract as 
varied was the contract under 
which foe premises were even- 
tually disposed of. 

Further, even if that had been 
established, the judge had been 
entirely correct in his finding 
that the Ramsay and Fwrniss v 
Dawson principles applied to 
foe scheme with foe result that 
the disposal occurred during the 
company's accounting period 
after liquidation had taken 
place.

THE TIMES THURSDAY OCTOBER 3CTJVab 


RACING: WINTER’S DUAL MACKESON SCORER LOOKS SET FOR A SUCCESSFUL REAPPEARANCE IN W1NCANT0N FEATURE 

Half Free can 


take winning 
step towards 
Cheltenham 

By Mandarin (Michael Phillips) 


. Free has won two 
chases over two miles and five 
ninongs at Wincanton during 
his long and honourable ca- 
reer but never the Terry 
siddiecombe Challenge Tro- 
phy which is his goal there this 
afternoon on what is his 
seasonal debut. 

Now m y feeling is that Fred 
winter's good ten-vear-old 
will chalk up another’ victory 
111 the race that his trainer 
regards as the ideal stepping 
stone for Cheltenham next 
month and another crack at 
the Mackeson Gold Cup 
which he has won for the past 
two years. 

■Any doubts about his ability 
to do well first lime out after a 
summer out to grass will be 
dispelled by referring to his 
record. 

Lack of a previous race did 
not prevent him from winning 
the Mackeson last autumn 
while the season before he 
won his first three races, all at 
Cheltenham. 

Now my information is that 
Half Free is as fit and as well 
as he has ever been at this 
stage of the season and he is 
my nap. 

The presence of Kathies 
Lad in the field should ensure 
a reasonable betting market, 
especially as he has already 
had a race over hurdles to help 
clear away any cobwebs that 
may have lingered after his 
summer's rest 

Last season Kathies Lad 
won at Devon in the autumn 
and at Liverpool in the spring. 
In between times he ran a 
couple of cracking races at 
Cheltenham to finish third to 
Ryeman in a handicap and 
third again to Buck House and 
Very Promising in the Queen 
Mother Champion Chase. 

Kathies Lad was also right 
alongside The Mighty Mac in 
a similar race to today's at 
Huntingdon when the last 
fence brought about his down- 
fell. That was a performance 
of no little significance be- 
cause The Mighty Mac was 
subsequently runner-up to 
Half Free in the Cathcart 
Challenge Cup at Cheltenham 
in March. 

Like Half Free, Lucky Rew 
also boasts a good record at 


Wincanton but not in the 
same league. 

Ulan Bator, a stable 
companion of my nap. can 
initiate a double for Winter 
and his new jockey Peter 
Scudamore by winning the 
Nailswonh Novices* Chase. 
First time out last season he 
finished third to Von Trappe 
and Mr Moonraker at 
Cheltenham. 

He would only have to run 
as well as that this afternoon 
to be too good for Jimminy 
Quickit. Haddak and 
Kingswick. 

Numerate, who is now a 
member of Oliver Sherwood’s 
Upper Lambourn stable 
following that 15.000 guinea 
transaction at .Ascot in June, 
can recover some of his pur- 
chase price by winning the 
Wincanton Group Challenge 
Cup. 

His first run for his new 
stable behind Morning Breaks 
at Worcester recently was very 
heartening. 

My other principal fancy on 
the ’ Somerset track is 
Kingswood Kitchens to record 
his second victory on the 
course this autumn in the 
second division of the Nether 
Wallop Novices' Hurdle at the 
expense of Scatterbuck whom 
he has trounced once already. 

With Jimmy Fitzgerald's 
horses in sparkling form no 
one should be surprised if 
Rising Forest wins the New- 
ark Storage Novices' Chase at 
Southwell. 

A pretty decent novice over 
hurdles a’ couple of seasons 
back, my selection was even 
deemed good enough to con- 
test the Waterford Crystal 
Stayers' Hurdle at Chelten- 
ham last March. As an in- 
dividual he looks every inch a 
budding chaser. 

Supreme Charter, another 
to have run during the festival 
meeting, can also make a good 
start to the new term by 
winning the EBF Novices’ 
Hurdle7qualifier). while Bock 
Up appeals as the likely 
winner of the Lowdhatn 
Handicap Hurdle following 
that eye-catching run behind 
Doughty Rebel at Sedgfield 
eight days ago. 


Dickinson’s fine start 


Monica Dickinson has sent 
out two runners this season and 
both have won. By The Way 
recently scored for her at Kelso 
and Bobby Bums, an 8-1 
chance, made a successful hur- 
dling debut in division one of 
the Simonbura Novices Hurdle 
at Newcastle yesterday. 

Bobby Bums, home bred by 
Lady Bolton, came with a strong 
run after the last to wear down 
the even money favourite Last 
Grain close home. 


Mrs Dickinson said that she 
would have three runners at her 
local Wctherbv track at the 
weekend. Rancho Bamardo and 
Flying Dancer turn out tomor- 
row, while Wayward Lad goes 
for the Charlie Hall Memorial 
Pattern Chase on Saturday. 

Feigy Foster, bred by his 
owner. Sedge held Racecourse 
chairman Frank Scotto, landed 
bis ninth win when capturing 
the Kielder Handicap Chase by 
threequaners of a length 


French raid Record price 


Gesedeh has a fine chance in 
today's Prix de Flore at Saint- 
Cloud and can take British 
trainers a step nearer the £4m- 
marfc for overseas earnings in 
1986. 

The total currently stands at 
well over £3.900,000 and the 
Michael Jarvis filly has the class 
to lake the £1 8,000 prize back to 
Newmarket. The soft ground 
should be in her favour. An- 
other British challenger is the 
Dick Hern-trained Sweei 
Mover. 


Final Try, a winner for John 
Dunlop’s stable this year, estab- 
lished a new record price for a 
jumper at the Newmarket Au- 
tumn Sales when making 
100,000 guineas to the bid of 
agent David Minton. 

This cfaesnut colt was bought 
for an undisclosed owner in 
Josh Gifford's Findon stables. 
The big. well-made son of Try 
My Best won a minor race at 
Nottingham and was fifth in the 
Extel Handicap at Goodwood.

Far Bridge tribute The Bald

By Quistopher Gocdding 


Toby Balding, the Fyficid 
trainer, who has enjoyed 
tremendous success in big 
handicaps on the Flat this 
season with Green Ruby win- 
ning the Stewards' Cup and Ayr 
Gold Cup, performed a great 
training feat at Ascot yesterday 
when be saddled Far Bridge to 
win the Crockfords Trophy 
Handicap Chase. 

Ear Bridge has been off the 
track through leg injury for 17 
months. The ten-year-old gal- 
loped his rivals into the ground. 
Mrs Carolyn Balding, represent- 
ing her husband, Toby, who has 
Down out to California to waicb 
the Breeders' Cup, said: "Mary 
Bromiiey, from Baydon, has 
done wonders to get him back 
sound for us." 

“If be gets into the handicap 
we will probably run him at

h«s won tire 
Sams Anita Handicap and the 
Hollywood Park Gold Cop on 
seren occasions apfcce and is the 
only trainer to have taken the 
Badweiser- Arlington MflUon 
twice with different horses, with 
Penult in 1982 and with 
Estoapade this August. The list 
of achievements is aae»ding. 

By raid-morning the dost had 
stated betwee n the rows of groro 
wooden huts and weeping ™- 
knvs, which font the bars are* 
or racecoorse stables. Earlier, do 
sooner had the son risen like a 
ball of fire behind the San 

Gabriel mountains at 6 am than 

the 2,900 horses had made the 
corase a flurry of activity at their 
morning exercise. 

This week the tacbOy-tralned 
horses have fo dear the track by 
9 am fo allow the European 
raiders to work- So afl was quiet 
as 1 walked fo barn 6 fo see 
Whittinghara. Stooping sfightiy, 
he was feraaafesdy dressed in 
a. tweed coat and light troasers* 
despite the seltry heat, as he 
peered at a board outside his 
office, calling out instructions fo 
his assistant, Rodney Bash. 

Re then became aware of ray 
presence. He then looked care- 
fully at me, as be dragged his 
attention away bora the bad- 
ness in hand. After acknowledg- 
ing my identity, we sat down on a 
couple of bard drain in foe 
workaday room, clattered- with 
entry fonts and other radsceQa- 
neoas papers. 

It was hard to consider Jhat 
this austere and venerable! 
had once daimed to be foe I 
batting champion of foe States 
“Throw whisky in their eyes 
firsthand then yoaVe got ‘era," 
ssed to be his recommended 
method of attack. 

“That was a long time ago,” 
he said firmly. *T deal drink at 
aO bow so well hare to talk like 
'this." His brain b sfiU razor 
sharp hot like many older men 
his brow fraiows as be recalls 
foe post. “Ooh,” he said. T have 
trained a lot of good horses, Ack 
Ack, Porterhouse and Cougar 
IL“ 

In 1971 Ack Ack was horse of 
the year, champion sprinter and 
best elder horse. Porterhouse 
was cfaampfcm two-year-tad colt 
in 1953 and< 
grass horse in If 

But this is a man of foe 
present. Apart from the big 
races be has won with Estrapade 
and Ferdinand this season he 
has also captared the 1986 
Santa Anita Handicap with 
Grefntna. 

He took me with a grata air of 

jpride to look at Fer dinand, (he 

cocMpKTOr of Bold Arrangement 
in tbe Kentucky Derby. “Not 
many people are allowed to look 
ta turn," he said, as we inspected 
a strong, muscular, well- bal- 
anced three-year-old colL “He’s 
got a month before bell be ready 
to ran," he went on, “but you'll 
be hearrag a lot more of Ferdi- 
nand, he’s a good horse." 


Playing the game 
in a big field 


As the trainer saw oh off the 
premises firmly bat kindly he 
ended on a philosophical note. 
“Things are never different, 
training’s ranch foe srane foe 
whole world over. You’ve got to 
do foe best yon can with tbe 
horses yoo.’ve got under the 
conditions available. Some peo- 

always been foe same. 

“Yon can’t be a money man 
and a good trainer as weO. I have . 
got accoontatas to do foe bnsi- ' 
T1 «y cotadn’t train . 
the bases and 1 coalda’t do foe 
sums. So I concentrate on the 
animals and let others 
about finance.

England’s trip off the 
tourist map barely 
worth the air sickness 


From a Special Correspondent, Wudinna, South Australia 

a half hoars in the 
^ M to “ scareeIv Sekl, and assured that his first 
ball would not 


_ scarcely 

^Orih the air sickness several 
Players experienced in the 
light aircraft in which they 
Unveiled to it from Adelaide. 
Restricting a South Australian 
Country XI to 131 for nine, 
they beat them by nine wickets 
and with the exceptions of 
Bread and Slack, who both 
maw fifties, got little useful 
practice. 

For a crowd of nearly 4,000 
the main pleasure of the day 
no doubt came from receivin g 
a touring team for the fim 
Ume. with its population of 
fewer than 1,000, Wudinna is 
thought to be the smallest 
place at which an England 
team have played since W G 
Grace's lime. 

But the game itself lacked 
sparkle. Unhappily, in their 
anxiety to make every thing 
just so, the home dub took 
such pains over their pitch, 
starting on its preparations at 
the beginning of September, 
that they rolled the life from it 

Slack’s failure against 
Queensland, where he was out 
to Frei, the quick left-hander, 
for one and nought was a 
factor in Gatting’s decision to 
bat second. Loosened up by 


swing and 
hurry through in the way that 
defeated him in Brisbane, 
Slack nude good use of un- 
demanding bowling with a 
careful two ho urs at the crease. 

Broad, whose 59 was 
smoothly made in an hour and 
a half, with his usual crisp play 
off his legs, outbatted him for 
the fourth time in five inningc 
and looks in good enough 
touch to be safely discarded 
from the 13 for tomorrow’s 
game with South Australia. 

With only two regular open- 
ers in the side, England would 
be well advised to give Aibey a 
taste of playing the new balL 
With two low scores in Ad- 
elaide, Slack raised doubts 
about his abflrty to handle 
Australia's fast bowlers in the 
Brisbane Test tomorrow 
fortnight. 

South Australia were beaten 
by eight wickets -in their 
opening Sheffield Shield game 
at Perth over the weekend and 
have no bowler faster than fast 
medium. Gower has been left 
out of the England 13; but 
though no more should be 
read into the decision than the 
necessity of giving Whitaker a

What a beautiful 
day for Pakistan 

From Richard Streeton, Faisalabad 


After Pakistan won the first 
Test match by 186 runs here 
yesterday, Vivian Richards, the 
West Indies captain, admitted it 
was the worst moment he had 
known in West Indian cricket 
Then, with a touch of typical 
Caribbean philosophy, he 
added: “But you must remem- 
ber, man, one beautiful day does 
not make a summer. 

“We cannot be 'too dis- 
appointed after all the successes 
we have had. Every time we get 
in anything tilc« thin dismal 
position some people are ready 
to jump over the moon. It is nice 
for them to be able to do that. As 
far as we are concerned we must 
keep our poise, which is im- 
portant in these parts. Our 
proven work as a unit will 
enable us ro come back. I repeat,

It took Pakistan another 25 
minutes and 31 balls to com-

ing at 43 for nine, made five 
further scoring strokes before 
Marshall gave a return catch to 
Abdul Qadir, who finished with 
a fantastic analysis that read: 
9.3-1-16-6. West Indies were all 
out for 53 in 127 minutes, then- 
lowest total in Tests and the 
lowest by anyone in Pakistan. 

Richards paid a generous 
tribute to Qadir, who, he said, 
had bowled splendidly. 

Jackie Hendriks, the West 
Indies manager, concurred. “We 
did not bat well. There is no 
question we have been through 
a trauma. Now it is up lo us to 
get our act together and turn the

Kent daring the winter from 
South Africa, where he will be 
touring with Kim Hughes's rebel

Getty’s cash offer 

The American multi-million' 
aire, John Paul Getty, has 
offered Gloucestershire £10.000 
in response to an appeal for help 
with the cost of a new cricket 

school at the county ground in 

fail of wickets: 14. 2 - 18 . 3-19, 4-19. Bristol Getty has already given 
540. 643. 7-38, 642. 9-43. 10-53. £2 million to Lord’s and £10,000 

to KcnL Perry said it would cost 
around £100.000 to replace the 
existing school 


satisfying moment of his cricket 
career. “West Indies at the 
moment are easily the best side I 
have played against. They are 
such a professional organization 
and to have beaten them is 
marvellous. It has given us a 
boost" 

Imran said Qadir*s bowling in 
the second innings confirmed 
that on occasions be “was a 
and in a class of his own 
as a leg-spinner. As soon as he 
gets a wicket, he gets his tail up 
and gets better and better." 

Imran also praised Wasim 
Akram, who was made man of 
the match for his six first 
innings wickets and his 66 on 
Tuesday. “He is a complete 
'natural’ and is obviously going 
to serve Pakistan very well in 
the years ahead." 

West Indies play a three-day 
match against the Puqjab 
Governor’s XI in Sahrwal start- 
mg tomorrow, when they will 
have the opportunity to rebuild 
their confidence. After this four 
one-day internationals and two 
Test matches complete the tour. 

For Richards the next three 
weeks, though, will provide him 
with the most difficult time he 
has had since inheriting the. 
captaincy from OiveUoyd. 

Complacency did not have a 
hand in their defeat. This West 
Indies side practises harder and 
longer — including rest days — 
than any other team I have seen 
on tours. What undid them was 
old fashioned leg spin, some- 
thing against which their present 
crop of players have tittle regu- 
lar experience.

Britain clutching at straws 


At ' first there was an 
overwhelming and depressing 
sense of dtja vu, of having 
suffered again from one of those 
nightmares that keep coming 
back. Yet there were straws to 
dutch at, even though there 
were shoulders shrugged in 
resignation, the practised 
stiffening of the upper lip. the 
feeling that we had seen it ati 
before and that nothing had 
really changed. 

Stunned into action as Britain 
fought back to 10-16. Australia 
went into overdrive and 
thrashed ns 38-16. The roar in 
50,000 throats was stilled, u> be 
replaced by generous applaiae 
for the rugby wizards m toe 
green and gold. . . . 

However, to repeat, the clutch 
of all straws are there, flimsy but 
real The fact that there is an 
ever-growing audience hungry 
for the best in Rugby L* 3 #** 
was demonstrated by the crowds 
streaming into Okl Tra flora as 
the rain lashed down. As Martin 
Edwards, the Manchester 
United chief executive, Mid: If 
the weather had been fine, we 
would probably have had to 
dose the gates.' 



RUGBY LEAGU 
DIARY 

Keith Mackfn 


The bedlam of noise set up by 
the crowd when Joe Lydon went 
70 yards to score must have 
been beard for miles. Even in 
the press box, where journalists 
are taught to remain objective 
and detached, veterans of many 
campaigns with notebook and 
pen stood up and thumped the 
desk in glee. 

We got carried away for a 
moment as the impossible sud- 
denly came within reach, al- 
though the joy lasted merely two 
minutes. Henderson Gill 
muffed the kick-off, Lewis sent 
Miles over and the bubble burst 
while still m embryo. 

However, the fact remains 
that Great Britain scored three 
good tries in this first Whitbread 
Trophy international two more 

than they scored in that pathetic 

string of perfbrmaiu^s a^inst 
ihe Kangaroos ra 1982. In doing 
so they proved that the Austra- 


lian defence is not impregnable 
and can be beaten by fast 
running, crisp ha n d lin g and 
good backing up, the basics of | 
Rugby League in which Austra- \ 
lians excel. 

Let us recall too, that more 
than half the Australian points 
came from moves which 
stemmed from British mis- 
handling. bad locking and loose 
tackling and cover. 

Maurice Baxnford, the Great 
Britain coach, obviously be- 
lieves that his squad cannot play 
as badly again and that they will 
have learnt some painful lessons 
in time for the second inter- 
national at EBand Road on 
Saturday week. Well we have 
been learning these lessons since 
1978 and the Australians still 
keep ticking us. 

Still if the brave Bamfbrd can 
keep faith with his players, let us 
keep faith with him. Perhaps 
Britain will bold on to their 
passes, move the trail quicker, 
find the gaps, kick accurately 
and above all make their tackles 
count. If all this tames to pass, 
watch out for low flying pigs 
above Elland Road.

By Rex Bellamy, Tennis Correspondent 


For three days, the Anglo- 
American women's tennis set 
have something more interest- 
ing to worry about than the 
treadmill of the international 
circuit and the computer's insa- 
tiable appetite for rankings data. 

This evening, the Wightman 
Cup contest between Great 
Britain and the United States 
returns to London's Royal Al- 
beit Hall the event carrying 
£165,000 of sponsorship from 
Nabisco. Play starts at 7. IS 
today and tomorrow and at 1J0 
on Saturday. 

What may reasonably be de- 
scribed as a United Stales 
reserve team (better players 
wens invited, but could not — or 
would not — play) should be 
good enough to win. perhaps 5- 
2. But it is in Britain's favour 
that three of the Americans are 
newcomers to the contest and all 
are newcomers to the inimitable 
character of the Albert HaU, 
which tends to inspire Britain 
and intimidate Americans, 
Opened in 1871, when it was 
described as the noblest building 
erected in Europe since the 
Colosseum, the Albert HaU has 
become renowned for the inti- 
macy of its cliff-like tiers and its • 
scenes of patriotic fervour. AU 
that contrasts with the other end 
of this annual event — in 
Williamsburg, Virginia — where 
Britain managed to win only 
one set last year. 

Settled In 1632, Williamsburg 
is famous for its colonial build- 
ings and its proximity to York- 
town, where the War of 
Indpendence ended in 1781, 
when British forces surrendered 
to those of the American rebels 
and their French allies. 

Since the Wightman Cup 
foand settled homes at the 
Albert Hall in 1978 and 
Williamsburg in 1983, it has 
acquired special patriotic over- 


tones at both venues, with the 
event a throwback to the days of 
amateurism and shamaieurisnx 
Its traditional and social bonds 
have usually been - of wider 
importance than its competitive 
validity, but the players find it 
an intense strain on the nerves. 

The scries has become so one- 
sided, its competitive nature as 
a team event so suspect, that 
Americans are often puzzled by 
the fact that Britain become so 
worked up about it. 

In recent years, the US team's 
composition has tended to be 
somewhat fortuitous, lamely a 
question of who is available and 
who is interested. On the other 
hand, no American player wants 
to be lumbered with the 
embarrassment of going down 
in history as being even partly 
responsible for a Wightman Cup 
defeat. 

Last July, the US won the 
world team championship with 
Martina Navratilova, Chris 
Lloyd, Pam Shriver and Zina 
Garrison, but the players they 
have mustered at the Albert Hall 
— Kathy Rinaldi Bonnie 
Gadusek, Stephanie Rehe, Anne 
White and Elise Burgin — give 
Britain more of a chance this 
time. 

All these, mind, are more 
highly ranked than every British 
player except Jo Durie — and 
even Miss Durie ranks below 
the three American singles 
players. 

Both i«uns had difficulty in 
selecting a player to fill the 
vacant fifth position. Britain 
chose Virginia Wade, aged 41, 
white the US called on Miss 
Rehe, aged 16, who was bom a 
year after Miss Wade won the 
US championship. Miss Wade 
has played in every Wightman 
Qip contest since 1965 but wifl 
not compete this tune unless 
called on as a substitute. 


With the reservation that Sara 
Gomer is a newcomer to the 
event. Britain have advantages 
in their greater experience of 
international team competition, 
their familiarity with the Albert 
Hall and the exciting support of 
what lends to be an un- 
ashamedly pro-British crowd. 

To some extent, all that may 
offset the fact that the Ameri- 
cans have more consistently- 
i repressive records as match- 
players. Much depends on the 
way all the newcomers react to 
the occasion. 

There must also be question 
marks against Miss Gomer, who 
has been out of action for almost 
three weeks because of 
troublesome thigh re usd e. and 
Miss Rinaldi who has been 
pestered by an ailing shoulder 
and has not competed since 
early September. 

The United Stales lead 47-10 
and, in the last seven contests, 
they have won 43 matches and 
lost only six. But the recent 
supremacy of the US does not 
match that exercised in their 
unbroken run of success from 
1931 to 1957. 

Their dominance was particu- 
larly evident from 1 946 to 1957, 
when the US won 77 matches 
compared with Britain's six (one 
match, at Wimbledon in 1954, 
was not played because of bad 
weather). 

That was the era of Margaret 
Osborne DuPont, Louise 
Brough, Doris Hart, Shirley Fry 
and Maureen Connolly — the 
era in which it was still fashion- 
able for the US to field a full- 
strength team.

Nightmare for Dowdeswell 


Colin DowdesweU, foe only 
British player who bothered to 
make the quick trip to the Paris 
Open, where prize money, ATP 
points and La Vie Paristenne 
were in plentiful supply, could 
be excused for thinking his 6m- 
round doubles match was just a 
bad dream. 

He could have dreamt that he 
was partnering a nervous Italian 
with a haunted look in his eyes, 
called Paolo Cane, whom he 
hardly knew. He could have 
dreamt, how they started to play 
this phanlom-like form of tennis 
in the dark, half-deserted spaces 
of a cavernous sta d i um in the 
wee small hours of the morning. 

He could have heard the 
familiar rantings of John 
McEnroe and detected the furi- 
ous scowls of Pater Fleming at 
the far end of the court. He 
could even have heard the 


From Richard Evans, Paris 

interne: “First set, Dowdeswell 
and Cane, 7-6." 

At that stage, Dowdeswell 
should have woken up because 
the dream did not get any better. 

The facts of the matter were 
that DowdesweU did, indeed, 
play doubles with Cane, a new 
partner. The match started at a 
quarter to midnight when, 
amazingly, there were stifl abpui 
5.000 people at the Omnisport 
Palais. 

A fair number stayed, too, as 
the unlikely Anglo- 1 tali an 
combination showed signs of 
testing the Americans' late-night 
reflexes. But the arena, which 
holds 15.000 when full was 
beginning to fed very empty by 
the time McEnroe, who had 
swaggered in with arms upraised 
to acknowledge the applause of 
the faithful and. Fleming. took 
control of the last two sets to win 


disembodied voice of an umpire _ them 6-2, 6-2. 

Prize duel for the crown 


Antwerp (Reuter) — Ivan 
Lendl who won a diamond- 
encrusted gold racket for bis 
third victory in the European 
Community Championship 
tournament fast year, has been 
named top seed u next week’s 
event. John McEnroe, whom 
Lendl beat in fast year's final, is 
in the opposite ban of the draw. 


Yannick Noah, of France, is 
seeded to meet Lendl in the final 
and M Do slav Mecir, of Czecho- 
slovakia, beaten in the final of 
the US Open by Lendl is seeded 
three. 

If be survives until the quar- 
ter-final stage. McEnroe, a for- 
mer winner of what has become 
the world's richest tournament, 
is likely to meet another Ameri- 
can, Brad Gilbert, wbo has 


obtained recent tournament 
wins in Vienna and Tel Aviv. 

The winner could meet either 
Noah or the seventh seed, 
Emilio Sanchez, of Spain, for a 
place in the final. If the 
organizers' seedings work out as 
expected, Lendl would meet the 
eighth seed, Thierry Tulasne, of 
France, in the Quarter- finals. 

None of the top Swedish 
players is competing in the 
tournament, formerly known as 
the European Champions' 
Championship. They have 
opted to play in a tournament in 
Stockholm next week. 

Prize money of about 
£670,000 is on offer and Ant- 
werp diamond merchants have 
put up another diamond-stud- 
ded gold racket worth £715,000 
fora three-times winner. 


A year ago. McEnroe played 
the first tennis ever staged at this 
imposing new stadium — when 
be lost a couple of exhibition 
matches against Yannick Noah 
and Stefan Ed berg. 

He returned this time with a 
family entourage that inducted 
his wne, Tatum, and his parents, 
all of whom managed to keep 
their eyes open until the doubles 
eventually ended at 1.45 a m . 
Naturally, McEnroe’s temper 
was not at its most docile at that 
hour, and he received a warm 
for railing a lineswoman snip 

It all might have seemed like a 
nightmare for poor DowdesweU. 
But, for McEnroe it was all pan 
of a night's work.

Gomez victory 
is unpopular 

Hong Kong - Andres Gomez, 
of Ecuador, the defending cham- 
pion in the $200,000 Hong 
Kong grand prix, struggled 
through an ill-tempered first 
round battle against Todd 
Witsken, of the United States, 6- 
3, 4-6, 6-4 yesterday. 

Gomez was warned twice for 
court abuse during the two and a 
half hour match and drew boos 
and catcalls from the crowd. But 
it was the lively play of Wiksten, 
aged 22 which caused most of 
his problems. 

Afterwards Gomez, the sec- 
ond seed, told reporters: “Al- 
though I have won the 
tournament two years running 
the crowd do not seem to like 
me." 


YACHTING 


Czech competitor 
is cleared of 
cheating charges 


By Barry PkkthaU 


Richard Konkolski. the 
Czechoslovak defector, compet- 
ing in his second single-handed 
round the world yacht race, was 
cleared late on Tuesday night of 
charges that he used the engine 
aboard his yacht Declaration of 
Independence to propel her 
during periods of calm on the 
first leg of the BOC Challenge 
from Newport Rhode Island to 
Cape Town. 

Fellow competitors, Hal Roth 
and Jean Luc Van Den Hcede, 
accused Konkolski of using his 
engine to propel him more than 
80 miles through the doldrums 
stretching across the Atlantic 
just north of the Equator, while 
Others were covering as little as 
12 miles a day during the same 
period. 

However, the protest commit- 
tee which included a South 
African high conn judge, con- 
cluded after a three hour hearing 
in Cape Town on Tuesday night 
that they were "unconvinced 
that the only reasonable in- 
ference u> be drawn from the 
evidence was that the protesiee 
used his engine to propel ihe 
boaL" 

Ail yachts competing in this 
27.000 mile solo marathon are 
equipped with engines to main- 
tain batteries to provide a power 
source for auto pilots, in- 
strumentation and radios, but 
only seven of the original 2S 
competitors, including 
Konkolski have these linked to 
propeller shafts. 

This is a sport that relies more 
than most on honesty, but as a 
safeguard against improper use 


of engines during a lull. Ameri- 
can scrutineers placed a wire 
seal around the gear linkages, 
locking them in neutraL Un- 
fortunately, when race officials 
inspected the wire and lead seal 
fined aboard Declaration of 
Independence when Konkolski 
arrived third in class at Cape 
Town, they found that it would 
have been simple enough for the 
Czech to remove the seal intact 
merely by disconnecting the 
gear linkage. 

This serious oversight on the 
pan of the BOC committee had 
led to a call from Phillipc 
Jeaniot, the French competitor, 
for the removal of all propellers 
on the three remaining stages of 
this race. 

“Unfortunately, that is not a 
foolproof answer either." Robin 
Knox-Job nston, the BOC race 
chairman, who won the 1969 
Sunday Times solo round the 
world race said yesterday. "If 
anyone really wanted to cheat, 
they could fit a second propeller 
at sea within IS minutes. What 
we have got to do is to fit a wire 
seal around the prop shaft 
couplings which cannot be taken 
apart which will break if anyone 
sets their engine into gear. Then 
if a competitor arrives in port 
with his seal broken, it will be tip 
to him to explain why.” 

While most competitors are 
happy to race around the world 
without the back-up of motive 
power, some. Konkolski in- 
cluded, view their engines as a 
means of avoiding trouble 
should on emergency arise.

Mets’ success has limited appeal 


New York (AP) - Winning 
the World Series will mean a 
plateful of banquet Invitations 
for the players of the New York 
Mets and a chance for some to 
appear In commercials. But 
advertising execathes know the 
emotion attached to the present 
heroes will soon fade, and they 
expect only a few, wetl-estah- 
Itehed, players to convert their 
prime- tone television exposure 
into lucrative, long-term, na- 
tional advertising assignments. 

The Mets and the Boston Bed 
Sox slogged it out in seven, 
nationally-televised, contests 
over the past two weeks, ending 
with New York’s 8-5 victory In 
dm deciding game on Monday 
night. On Tuesday, a crowd 
estimated by police at more than 


two mfllhm, turned oat for a 
ticker-tape parade to honour the 
city's new heroes. 

“In terms of personal appear- 
ances, this skyrockets it," said 
Marty Blackman, the president 
of Blackman and Raber Ltd, a 
New York-based consulting firm 
which advises advertising agen-

Players who have been getting 
between $300 and $JUOOO for an 
appearance may now be aUe to 
j-rttamaad fees of between $750 
and £1500, he said. But he 
added that only a few players 
will find national television 
commercial offers coming their 
way. 

Blackman cites Gary Carter, 
the Mets’ catcher, as “the safest 
bet” to win a national commer- 


cial contract, not only beeanse of 
a solid World Senes perfor- 
mance bot because of his record 
of baseball accomplishments, 
popularity in the ballot for the 
nnnifl nn-efar match, and civic 
involvements. 

Carter has already appeared 
in commercials for soap, cam- 
eras, a bank and a newspaper. 
Stephen Levitt, the president of

Inc, which me as ur es consumer

Knight, may be the Mets' player 
who win benefit the most from 
his World Series exposure. 

Knight's marriage to the

W / . the twin steering 
r J wheels on each 
Kookaburra 12- 
metre is a fiat, 
circular 
worktop. It looks like the latest 
Milan coffee-table. What it 
really contains Is a powerful 
MicroVax computer. 

The “table-top" is a revolving 
screen that can swivel to face the 
helmsman. During pre-start 
manoeuvres it constantly tells 
the skipper how tong h would 
take him to get to the line. On a 
long beat into the “Fremantle 
doctor" a window in the sc re en 
shows a “wind field plot” of the 
entire coarse. 

Shifts in the breeze show np 
as spikes on the wavy lines at the 
baste sea breeze characteristics. 
Of coarse, one stifl has to pay 
attention to Colio Beasbei 
potting a tack on top of yon five 
metres away. 

The computing technology is 
formidable- But it also took 
three design attempts to con- 
struct a VDU housing that was 
functional and waterproof. Both 
projects were achieved in-house 
by Taskforce. 

Looking at the aefaieveatent of 
the Kookaburras in overshadow- 
ng the Bead syndicate in the 
first Defender series, one most 
assess the syndicate as a whole, 
lam M array and Peter G Amour 
are brilliant sailors — bat so are 
Cohn Beashd and Gordon L»- 
cas, skippers with the Bond 
syndicate. 

Originally, Kevin Parry's 
budget for toe Kookaburra 
project was S4£ million and one 
jacIL Now he has three 12s and 
looks like spending in excess of 
$20 million. 

M array realized how much 
computing had done for Bond in 
1983. He wanted toe best data 
processing on board that money 
coaid boy. 

Chris Todter is an American 
co m p uting specialist wbo has 


been sailing since be was three 
years old. Now 36. be knew 
Murray 10 years ago ia Sydney 
and worked with him on the 
Advance campaign at Newport 
in 1983. When Todter talks the 
Pentagon pricks op its tan. 
Daring his 20s he worked on 
missile guidance programmes 
that were so advanced many of 
them are even bow still in the 
development stage. “As it be- 
came more military I didn't want 
to stay involved with it," Todter 
recalls. 

Being in Newport with a low 
budget and a slow boat. Ad- 
vance, was not that exciting. But 
be watched what Bond was 
doing. “Australia 11 showed tin 
viability of a very large data- 
logging programme," Todter be- 
lieves. “Bat their analysis tools 
were very erode." 

As time goes by it may be that 
Murray's skill to pfsMieg the 
key men to surround him in toe 
programme begins to over- 
shadow the skipper^ prowess on 
the water. 

But in many ways it is the 
bigger achievement. Helmsmen 
do not get to be an America’s 
Cop skipper without a dash of 
ego. Yet Murray was keen to 
faring to an Englishman, Lawrie 
Smith, a hired gnn rated Che best 
in the world, earlier this year to 
race against himself. 

Straight off a 20-honr flight, 
staffed with jet-lag. Smith beat 
him six races out of six. Mmray 
was d el igh ted . He was learning. 
Smith earned twice as much as 
Murray — so what! Big Iain from 
Sydney was convinced he was 
patting together the ultimate 12- 
metre syndicate. 

The enp world did not always 
look at Kookaburra with respect 
When Taskforce took Kooka I to 
Sydney to be beaten by the old 
Australia I things looked black. 
Since then a formidable bat

SQUASH RACKETS 


Briars is 
ready for 
the world 

By Colin McQmllaii 

Gawain Briars, the former 
national champion, revealed 
bow well prepared be is for next 
week's World Open Champion- 
ship in Toulouse when he wore 
down the Australian, Chris 
Dittmar, over five sets in an 
American Express Premier 
League match on Tuesday. Bri- 
ars was playing for Home Ales 
Nottingham; Dittmar had taken 
over as first-string for the Wake- 
field side, Visco Monroe. 

Briars has trained quietly at 
Nottingham with the World 
Open and the subsequent na- 
tional championships in mind. 
In two of the games, be was 
behind 2-9 and 4-9 before 
reaching into his reserves of 
strength and stamina, display- 
ing a range of patient retrieval 
that was bound eventually to 
sap the confidence of a man 
returning from a serious injury. 

Energy-sapping rallies, inch- 
perfect drop shots and immacu- 
late power driving took the 
match fate into the night. At 10 
pm the fixture stood precisely 
balanced, two matches all and 
two games all but Briars was 
cruising. 

A buret ball al 4-4 in the fifth 
game provided a much needed 
respite for Dittmar — who, not 
so long ago, was the only serious 
rival to Jahangir Kjhan — and 
might have ted to a win for the 
home side bad Briars not re- 
verted to hard rallying. 

The tall Englishman, aged 28 
and ranked sixth in the world, 
looked in need of speed work?

England 

miss 

chance 

By Richard Eaton 

England travelled to Oldham 
for their second match against 
China yesterday knowing that, 
but for a bit of luck and two 
narrowly missed match points 
in a thrilling climax to the 
opening match at Portsmouth 
on Tuesday, they would by now 
have an excellent chance of 
winning the three- match series. 

They have never done that 
before and only twice ever won 
matches against China, who this 
time recorded a 3-2 victory. 

The final men's doubles at the 
Mounibatten Centre was one of 
the most frenetic ever seen, with 
England's Martin Dew and 
Dipak Tailor saving two match 
points against Li Jiao and Jin 
Chen, then having two of their 
own, before losing 15-10, 7-15, 
17-16. 

The full-throated participa- 
tion of the 1.200 spectators 
added to the sense of urgency 
that the contest had generated 
from the Stan. 

Helen Troke, the European 
and Commonwealth champion, 
foiuhl every inch of the way up 
to 7-7 in the second game of an 
11-5, 11-7 defeat to Yao Fen. 
Miss Fen Yao bad beaten her in 
only 12 minutes last week. 

Then there was a good win for 
the interesting new partnership 
of Dew and Gillian Gowers in 
the mixed doubles. 

Glen Milton, playing only bis 
sixth match for England as a fate 
substitute for Darren Hall, the 
national champion, who was 
unwell also looked impressive 
in his 17-16, 15-2 triumph over 
Liu Qinhua.

RUGBY UNION 


Kent put up a 








take honours 


By David Hands 
Rugby Correspondent 


Middlesex 28 

Kent to 


Middlesex virtually ensured 
a place at the top of group A in 
the London division of the 
county championship, spon- 
sored by Thom EMI. at the 
Sloop Memorial Ground yes- 
terday. a purple patch in the 
middle of the second half 
brought them victory over 
Kent by three goals, a try and 
two penalty goals to a goal and 
a try. 

The tone of an error-strewn 
game was sex early on. Barely 
lour minutes bad elapsed 
when Fletcher fed Ebsworth 
for a clearing kick behind a 
iineoul. only for the full back's 
effort to rebound off the 
charging Del Rutter, who went 
on id score. The conversion 
was signalled by the touch 
judges but over-ruled by the 
referee. 

For a long time it seemed 
there would be no other score 
before the interval. Middlesex 
established a slight lineout 
advantage, mainly through 
O'Leary, but the Kent de- 
fence. though scrambling at 
times, managed to soak it all 
up. Dent, who scored two tries 
in the last Middlesex outing, 
was launched into space once 
and beat two defenders with 
some ease but lacked support 
on the outside five metres 
from the line 


His run established a useful 
pressure point from which 
Jackson drove to the comer 
and flipped an inside pass to 
Cullen but the Middlesex 
captain had put a foot in 
louch.Nevertheless. Middle- 


sex turned round to receive vaughan (BiacHneamj, a nnrsey

France unchanged 


Toulouse (.AFP) — France will 
retain the side which won 20-3 
in Romania last weekend for the 
fits! rugby union Test against 
the New Zealand All Blacks here 
on Saturday week. 

The team was named on 
Wednesday and with the selec- 
tors showing faith in the Bu- 
charest 15. it means tour players 
- Herve Chabowski. the prop. 
Alain Carminati, the number 
eight, and Philippe Berot and 
Marc Andrieu. the wingers — 
make their home international 
debuts. 

Berot, aged 21. made a 
successful first appearance on 
Saturday, scoring 12 points. He 
converted his own uy and also 
kicked two penalties as the 
French recorded their first win 
after successive Test defeats in 
Australia and New Zealand in 
June. 

Carminati. aged 20. doing his 
militarv service, an unknown at 


the start of the year, retains his 
place ahead of the vastly experi- 
enced Jean-Luc Joinel after an 
outstanding debut. 

Back in the fold, on the 
replacements bench, is Philippe 
Dimrans. the former skipper 
and hooker, who missed the 
whole of last season's Five 
Nations Championship because 
of a slipped disc.

Langhome fell offside. 

There remained time for 
Kent to score a gem ofa try be- 
fore the greater experience of 
Middlesex began to tell.Field

and kicked ahead, the bounce 
falling perfectly for Thresher 
who scored.

At that stage Middlesex 
decided ihey had had enough.

forwards to seize ihe lead after 
Ebswonh's second penally. 
Jackson supported Rigby fora 
try ai the posts and ihen 
Fletcher took advantage of a 
Kern defence caught at sixes 
and sevens. 


The third tiy in the space of 
eight minutes was possibly the 
best: Smith sped through a 
clutch of forwards, found 
Moss and kept going to take 
the return pass for a score 
which Ebsworth 

improved-Thresher and Che- 
val brought inspiration io 
Kent, who were desperately 
close to running in a try from 
their own line but the final 
touch eluded them and Jack- 
son closed the match with his 
second try.

Robert Mankee, the experi- 
enced Camborne scrum half, 
has been recalled by Cornwall 
for their first Thorn EMI county 
championship game, against 
Berkshire at Newbury on 
Novembers. Mankee takes over 
from David Rule, who reverts to 
the replacements' bench after 
occupying the scrum half pos- 
ition in all of the county's 
friendly fixtures this season. 

Cornwall played their final 
warm-up game on Tuesday 
evening, when they lost 7-3 to 
the Royal Navy in the first 
county game to be staged under 
the recently-installed lights at 
the Hayle club. As ever, it was 
something of a fraternal strug- 
gle. since Cornwall frequently 
call upon naval resources in 
their championship side. 

On this occasion. Bob 
Henderson was playing for the 
Navy and kicked their penalty; 
on Saturday week, however, he 
will appear at full back in his 
first championship game for 
Cornwall. It is the same position 
as that sometimes occupied by 
Chris Alcock. who has captained 
both the Navy and the county in 
the past. But Alcock. who also 
plays at centre, has a broken 
bone in his hand and is not 
available. 


that, before the county 
championship, the Navy give 
Cornwall a free hand in selec- 
tion. The situation is reversed in 
December when the Navy are 
limbering up for the ioter- 
services championship. Corn- 
wall still take advantage of naval 
powers of leadership by award- 
ing the captaincy to Barry 
Howarth. the Plymouth Albion 
and Roval Navy flanker. 


Players from the Plymouth 
club have made themselves 
available once more for county 
duty with Devon this season. 
They decided last season to 
concentrate upon improving 
Albion's national standing, but 
there has been a change of 
attitude, even though only two 
of the club's players appear in 
Devon's final warm-up match 
this evening, against the British 
Police at Exeter. 


Plymouth have a national 
merit table C game with Metro- 
politan Police on Saturday so 
the county selectors have looked 
elsewhere today. They will 
choose the side to play Oxford- 


shire at Exeter in the county 


championship on November 
after the game against the 
Police.

East, the former chief constable

Devon are led this evening by

back, and include among their 
backs Paul Lander, the for mer 
Coventry scrum half who has 
been making his way back to 
fitness via Exeter's lower sides. 
John Widdecombe, the New- 
port lock who hails from Tor- 
quay. has also been selected.

Wilts on November 1 S, has been

Dumitni promoted 


By Chris Than 


George Dumitru, the veteran 
lock forward, will captain his 
country against Ireland at 
Lansdownc Road on Saturday. 
Dumitru. aged 34. made an 
impressive comeback at inter- 
national level against France at 
the weekend. He has become the 
obvious choice for captaincy 
after Mircea Munteanu, the 
captain, was carried off injured 
on Saturday. Dumitni cap- 
tained his country during their 
successful lour of Wales in 1979 
and led an overseas XV against 
Wales in tbeir centenary season. 

He is by tar the most experi- 
enced forward in Lbe Romanian 
team, having won more caps 
than the whole pack put to- 
gether. However, he has moved 
from lock forward to No. 8 for 
the Irish game, a decision 
prompted by Laurcntiu 
Constantin's below-par perfor- 
mance against the French and 
his obvious lack of experience at 
No. S. 

In the front row. battered 
mercilessly by the French. Ion 
maintains the hooking berth 
vacated by Munteanu. while 
Pascu. at Light-head has replaced 
Gheorghe. his club-mate, who 


remains on the bench. At scrum 
half. Valeriu Iriroescu, the 
coach, siill hesitates between 
Seed can u whose debut was far 
from impressive and Teddy 
Coman. At full back Florea is 
replaced by Hodorca while 
Popescu's international career 
on the right wing has been cut 
short after only one cap. He was 
replaced by Marian Zafiescu, 
one of the six players in the team 
from Dinamo Bucharest 

Young Virgil Nastase, of Bu- 
charest University, plays at 
stand-off half and hopefully will 
reproduce some moments of 
magic that the name Nastase is 
usually associated with. 

The referee of the Ireland v 
Romania game is a Mr David 
Bishop who would point out 
with wry humour that he is a 
New Zealander not Welsh. Mr 
Bishop has spent a week in

unavailable through injury. 

Bates, the scrum half, how- 
ever, is making a steady come- 
back in the lower teams and on 
Sunday he has a first team run- 
out in a match against a New

Auckland. For that match 
Wasps also call up their three

Philip Orr, the “iron man" of 
Irish rugby, will set a world 
record of 5! appearances for his 
country as a front-row forward 
when he plays against Romania 
at Lansdowne Road on Sat- 
urday. 

At present sharing the record 
with Sandy Carmichael, of Scot- 
land. Orr admits to not having 
thought a great deal about the 
record until “around my 48th 
cap.** .And when he won cap 
number 49 against France at the 
start of last season, no-one 
believed that be would not equal 
the record on the day that Barry 
McGnhean. in happier times, 
successfully defended his World 
Boxing Association feather- 
weight title against Danito 
Cabrera io Dublin. 

But the men who control the 
destinies of those who wear the 
green decided that H was time 
| for change, and Orr was re-

Saturday's match 


Orr won his first cap against 
France in 1976; tamed New 
Zealand with Ireland later that 
yean was back in New Zealand 
the following year with the 
British Lions and made one test 
appearance. He played in both 
internationals daring Ire land's 
tear to Australia in 1979, when 
the home nation were beaten in 
Brisbane and Sydney; was a 
replacement for die Lions in 
South Africa in 1980 and toured 
the Republic with Ireland in 
1981. He was in Japan with 
Ireland fast year and, while be 
harbours no thoughts of next

have said farewell to his 36th 
birthday, the portents are that 
the 5ft JOin, 16st 71b. Old 
Wesley prop trill be again the 
cornerstone of the Irish scrum. 


Orr Irish iron-man 


the English eight were in- 
exorably advancing in unison on 
the Irish line. Instead, they had 
to settle for a penalty try. " 

Orr's recall was a proud 
moment, -and one I will remem- 
ber for a long, long time when 
Ctaran Fitzgerald insisted I led 
the team out against Scotland.” 
The Scots spoiled the party by 
winning and. when the skipper 
put an arm around Orr's shoul- 
der as they both made their way 
to the tunnel at the end of the 
match, most of us thought it was 
the end of the road for two 
mighty men of Irish rugby. Orr 
has survived bat Fitzgerald has 
not although his inclusion 


But that is in the future and it 
is a fair bet that Orr cs not oven 
aware of the Tact that, after 
Saturday, be will be only one cap 
away from equalling Graham 
Price's world record for a prop- 
forward of 53 appearances for 
Wales and the British Lions. 


That is typical of a man who 
possesses a quiet, modest, dis- 
position, and is one of the few 
front-row fo r w a r ds who has 
spent a decade In that most 
demanding of positions in the 
scrum, yet at whom no-one can 
point a finger for unsporting 
conduct Orr has always been, 
and will forever remain, a tough, 
uncompromising opponent bet 
always a true s p orts m an oh the 
field of play and the most 
likeable of men off it. 




SNOOKER 


Thorbum’s 


return 
marked by 
failure 


From a Correspondent 
Toronto 


Cliff Thorb urn's return to his 
native Toronto for the BCE 
Canadian Masters ended in 
embarrassing failure yesterday . 

Thortrum, the work! No. 2 
who moved permanently from 
Canada to England during the 
summer to concentrate on the 
lucrative United Kingdom tour- 
nament circuit, picked a bad 
moment to record bis heaviest 
defeat of 1 986 as Tony Knowles 


recorded a surprisingly comfort* 
-final v» 


able 5-1 quarter-final victory. 

Thorbum must have sus- 
pected it was not his night as a 
terrible miss on the green 
banded Knowles the opening 
frame. 66-51. Thai clearly gave 
the world No 4 confidence and 
he immediately produced 
breaks of 56 and 30 to move 3-0 
in front. 


Thoiborn's highest break of 
the match — a deliberate 44 — 
did give him the fourth frame 
65-1 6 but Knowles, beginning to 
play with some of his old 
fluency, added further breaks of 
55 and 90 to seal victory and 
move into the semi-finals, 
where he will face Willie 
Thorne.

BOWING 


Registration puts i 
rocky boat on 
a more even keel 


-By Jim 

Rowing has been given the 
^it of raising more money from 
inside the sport to, meet am- 
bitious targets within its five- 
year plan. 

Rather than imposing, a 
significant increase m taxation 
during 1986-87, the Amateiw 
Rowing Association council 
have approved in principle a 
compulsory registration scheme 
for competitors and members of 
clubs and the replacement of the. 
present sliding scale by a. flat- 
rate subscription. If the registra- 
tion scheme is introduced the 
regatta levy will be 
discontinued. 


liderat ‘ 


The registration scheme, 
which may be introduced next 
summer, is well overdue and 


should place the ARA on a 
financial i 


sounder financial basis. 

The benefits of the proposed 
package include regular issues of 
**a new glossy rowing journal" 
and a substantial discount on 
the British Rowing Almanack, 
which will hardly enthuse the 
rank and file. Also on offer are 
possible individual voting 
rights. 

What is proposed here has not 
been spelt out. It could mean an 
annual general meeting with 
individuals having a right to 
vote. Alternatively, registered 
members of a dub could vote 
individually for their divisional 
representative on the ARA 
council. At present a dub re- 
ceives one vole for every 40

Rush breaks the 
Oxford duck 


By Sydney Friskin 


Oxford University. 
Maidenhead 


..1 

..0 


Oxford University achieved 
their first victory in the Pizza 
Express London League at The 
Parks yesterday after resisting a 
spirited Maidenhead challenge 
towards the end. 

Oxford fielded eight of the 
side that lost 3-1 to Cambridge 
last season and. with Often, the 
Cambridge goalkeeper, joining 
them, they had nine Blues in 
their team altogether. 

Previously, Oxford had lost 4- 
2 to Reading and had drawn 2-2 
with Tulse Hill. Maidenhead 
bad lost 2-0 to Surbiton and had 
beaten London University 1-0. 

Oxford, with a lot of good 
running by Rush through the 
middle and Ukiab on the right, 
took control of the first half, 
with Maidenhead seeing little of 
the ball 

Oxford had six short cornets 
before the end of the first half 
and they scored from the third 
one in the 23rd minute. Barry's 
initial shot from the top of the 
circle was saved by Atkins, but 
Rush scored from the rebound. 

Oxford also came dose to a 
score from their fifth short 
corner after the ball had been 
deverty worked on the left to 
Vivian, whose scoop was saved 
by the goalkeeper. 


Maidenhead launched an 
eartv offensive in the second 
half but it was not long before 
Oxford woe again on the move 
and, with Ukiab being ob- 
structed near the circle, the 
University were awarded an- 
other short corner. 

After 10 minutes of upsand- 
down play, Maidenhead began 
to raise tbeir game, and they 
were unlucky in the 28th minute 
of the second half when a shot 
by Banner was turned on to a 
post by Mee, who had covered 



Oxford, having been re- 
prieved, regained the initiative 
and. in the dying minutes, they 
missed two scoring chances, die 


easier by Vivian, who swum at a 
ck-pass from Ukiah but failed 


back-; 


to conned.

Americans 


thrive on 


team spirit 


Tbe top 12 players on the 
American LPGA Tour meet the 
top 12 on the Japanese Tour in 
the $200,000 (about £142,000) 
Nichirei women's cup team 
match this coming weekend. 
Tbe eighth annual event will be 
contested at a new she; the par- 
72 Tsukuba Country Club. 

in the previous seven years, 
the Amencan team have col- 
lected five wins (1979. 1980, 
1982, 1983 and 1985) and two 
defeats. Last year tbe Amencan 
field, under the direction of tbeir 
captain, Pat Bradley, defeated 
Japan by a landslide score of 32 
to 16. Jan Stephenson won the 
individual strokeplay honours 
after defeating Alice Miller on 
the first hole of a sudden-death 
playoff 

* Bratfley is again leading what 
coukl be the strongest-ever 
American team. She emphasizes 
that her goal is to make the 
players fed at ease with each 
other. “I will carefully pair each 
player with someone they feel 
compatible with. Because we are 
in a different country, comfort is

the key. As far as our team 
at.Il 


talent, I have no doubts. We will 
have a kx of tournament win- 
ners there" 

Bradley commented on the 
pride that was generated among 
the Americansduring tbe event 
“It's the most wonderful fading, 
much different from any time 
daring the year. A tremendous 
camaraderie and team spirit 
develops.”

All done by magic — and very straightfaced 


ety, as movie wizardry is today. I 
have an uneasy feeling there is a 
flaw in the argument somewhere, 
but in a film that has such fun in 
only half-explaining how the 
world can be terrorized by a blue 
laser beam, how cloud-touching 
monsters are in reality only 18 
inches high and how a naval battle 
can be fought out again in what 
looks like a bath tub, it seems 
churlish to question this bit of 
movieland philosophy. But the 
thought may occur to you, as it did 
to me. that if it is true what Arthur 
C Clarice says in the dosing quote 
tonight — “any sufficiently ad- 
vanced technology is indistin- 
guishable from magic'’ — then 
there really is no need for 
Hollywood's electronic wizards to

• Whatever the title may lead you 
to believe, Michael Waldman's 
Forty Minutes film Olga Goes to 
Hollywood (BBC2, 9.30pm) has 
nothing whatever in common 
with the Equinox film of movie 
magic. Olga Serova is no film star 
(though she looks like one, and 
-would be just right in something 
by Chekhov). Nor does she really 
go to Hollywood itself if, by 
Hollywood, we mean the film city.

the Soviet Union, they would 
presumably still have been there 
watching television pictures that, 
so Olga says, told nothing but ties 
about life in the United States. 
Instead lhey now live in a city 
they do not much like. Olga misses 
Russian culture — which is not 
surprising when we are shown 
pictures of her being kissed by a 
killer whale. Husband Zhenya 
warns something spiritual. In- 
stead when be looks at America, 
all he sees is one big dollar. 

• I am still worried about the 

studio audience in Film Bnff of the 


Year (BBC2, 1 0. 1 5pm). We might 
want to hear them, but why do we 
need to see them? They are, in any 
case, a strangely lifeless loL You 
would swear they had been 
warned that, if they dared to 
betray any human emotions, they 
would be booted out of the studio. 
At least in Mastermind, the

and Magnus Magnusson does not 
turn his back on them as Robin 
Ray does. Ray is a good question- 
master. though, and the questions 
are not so difficult that they make

that there is not much point in 
their continuing to watch the

M.'ifJI'x: to trouble Robson 


Chorley's big day has been 
spoilt by the local police, who 
have banned their FA Cup 
first round clash against 
Wolverhampton Wanderers 
from going ahead at Viciory 
Park. 

The Multipart League 
dob's little ground is currently 
being revamped to meet the 
safety certificate 

requirements. 

Now. the police hate ruled 
that it would be unable to cope 
adequately with the expected 
large influx of Wolves fans, on 
November 15. 

Welsh dnb Ton Pentre have 
been luckier. The police have 
allowed their game at home to 
nearby Cardiff to go ahead, 
even though the local rugby 
dub are entertaining Cardiff 
Rugby Club at the same time a 
mite away.

Davies set to 
return ‘home’ 


Gordon Davies, the former 
Welsh International striker, 
has agreed terms with Ful- 
ham. and is set to rejoin the 
dnb that launched his League 
career. 

Ray Lewington. Fulham 
player-manager, had hoped 
the deal would be completed 
today with Davies returning to 
Craven Cottage for a fee of 
around £45.000. 

But white it has been tem- 
porarily postponed. Lewington 
still expects Davies to be a 
Fulham player in time for him 
to play in Saturday's Third 
Division match at Doncaster. 


Yugoslavia, the nation with 
one of the best records against 
England, suggested last night 
that they may be a genuine 
threat to Bobby Robson's side 
and their ambitions of reach- 
ing the finals of the European 
Championships. 

The two countries, who 
meet at Wembley in -a fort- 
night. stand together at the 
head of group four, although 
Yugoslavia lead on goal 
difference. 

Against Turkey here yes- 
terday they sprinkled enough 
moments of quality during an 
otherwise lethargic stroll to 
confirm that they will be 
difficult to break down and to 
contain. In the absence of 
Sliskovic. their most gifted 
individual. Skoro and 
Mlinaric stood out in mid- 
field and Zlaiko Vujovic 
emerged as their sharpest 
weapon. 

On a surface that was far 
from even, the Yugoslavs 
displayed a technique that was 
at times delightful. Flexible 
and imagi native in their cre- 


ative department, they dis- 
mantled the Turks with a 
sense of touch and a speed of 
movement that should have 
brought them a much more 
substantial victory. 

For the opening 20 minutes 
the Yugoslavs resembled a 
group that were strangers 
rather than a squad that had 
lived together for a week 
inside the stadium itself. The

crowd, scattered thinly across 
the terraces, were justifiably 
displeased with a pattern that 
was disjointed and with an 
approach that was uncertain. 

But once the relatively 
young and inexperienced side 
had taken the lead, they 
relaxed and so did the audi- 
ence. The Turks, after a start 
that was full of unlikely prom- 
ise for Robson, were sub- 
sequently exposed for their 
enormous deficiencies which 
were later to reach the heights 
of embarrassment. 

Humiliated 8-0 by England

Oldham sign 
Callaghan 


Oldham Athletic* s manager 
Joe Royle yesterday made his 
second signing in six days 
when he paid £10,000 to Stoke 
City for Aaron Callaghan, the 
Republic of Ireland under 21 
defender. 

This follows the signing last 
week of Tommy Wright, the 
20 year-old Leeds United for- 
ward for a record £80.000. 


Simferopol {AFP) — The 
Soviet Union, with three goals

Norway were finished with 
less than'35 minutes gone as 
the Russians scored three 
limes in eight minutes 
through Litovchenko, 
Belanov (penally) and 
Blokhin. Khidiatoullin added 
the fourth after 59 minutes to 
round off a performance 


which keeps the impressive 
Russians on top of the group

saved from a defeat of similar 
proportions by a goalkeeper 
with the unlikely name of 
Fatih. His title may conjure up 
an image of Billy Bunter but 
he was built more along the 
lines of Olive Oil. 

With his elongated limbs, 
be denied the Yugoslavs, es- 
pecially on either side of the 
hour. Yet he was vulnerable in 
the air as were his defensive 
colleagues, and this flaw was 
to prove their downfall before 
the interval. Both of their 
early mistakes were punished 
by the more attacking of the 
Vujovic twins. 

An employee of Bordeaux, 
he struck in the 2Stb and 33rd 
minutes. He could scarcely 
have been given more time to 
roll in his first goal off a post 
or a more generous gift by 
Turkey's captain, Yusuf, to 
claim his second. “They were 
absolute presents," Robson 
said later, “and after that they 
caved in." 

The introduction of Tuce 
lifted Yugoslavia's challenge 
and Savicevic. another sub- 
stitute. and Vujovic put them 
further ahead wi thin the dos- 
ing quarter of an hour. Rob- 
son, though impressed by “the 
little gem" called Tuce, saw 
nothing to fear in Yugoslavia's 
curiously languid perfor- 
mance. “They didn't play 
particularly well." he stated. 

“Sliskovic may make a 
difference," he added, “but be 
will have to. They weren't as 
good as when I saw them in 
Paris a year ago and I cannot 
remember seeing so many 
misplaced passes in an inter- 
national match. The Turks 
were, if anything, worse than 
when we beat them."

Spectator fine 
for Shamrock 


Shamrock Rovers, the League 
of Ireland champions, have 
been fined £2,000 by the 
U.E.F.A. because they fluted 
to segrate spectators properly 
at their European Cup game 
against Glasgow Celtic at 
Milltown on September 17. 

Commenting on the fine 
Loois Kilcoyne, the Shamrock 
Rovers director, said: “We are 
very disappointed, and it is our 
intention to appeal against it 
immediately." 


• Shrewsbury's board of 
directors have rejected a writ- 
ten transfer request from 
Republic of Ireland midfield 
player. Gerry Daly. The for- 
mer Manchester United. Cov- 
entry City and Birmingham 
player, who joined the second 
division side fora nominal fee 
a year ago, has another 20 
months of his contract to run. 


Halifax Town will hold a 
board meeting today which 
will decide the future of the 
dub. On Tuesday the Halifax 
chairman. John Madeley. said 
that the official receiver had 
already been called in al- 
though he later denied this. 
Halifax have debts of almost 
£300.00. of which £76.000 is 
owed to the Inland Revenue. 

Madeley is confident how- 
ever. that home League games 
against Cardiff City tomorrow 
and Exeter City next Tuesday 
wil I go ahead despite the club's 
serious financial position. 
Madeley said: "The attitude of 
everyone is tremendous. The 
manager, coach and players 
are looking forward to 
Friday's game although they 
know there will not be any pay 
this week." 

Accountants — who, accord- 
ing to Madeley. are specialists 
in receivership — spent most 
of Tuesday going through 
Halifax's books and a report 
bv the club's financial advisers 


will be discussed today. One of 
the club's problems is that 
their assets are limited since 
they do not own their own 
ground. Halifax’s financial cri- 
sis had originally been re- 
ported to the Football League 
and the Professional Football- 
ers Association by the club’s 
secretary. 

• Walthamstow Avenue's 
ground has been dosed after a 
court order. Bailiffs have 
moved in because of an 
unpaid debt of £90,000. The 
Vauxhall-Opd League dub 
claim, however, that this is the 
result of an administrative 
error by a Liverpool court. 
Their secretary said: “We 
have an outstanding debt and 
an instalment was due to be 
paid on October 17. An of- 
ficial went to Liverpool to pay 
the sum of £900 into court but 
found the case had been 
cancelled. 

“We should have been in- 
formed when the court was 


sitting again but heard noth- 
ing. Then, out of the blue, the 
badifls arrived and locked us 
out of our ground. The matter 
will be deared up by the 
weekend and our Vauxhall 
Opel League game against 
Slough will go ahead. We are 
keeping the League fully in- 
formed and are in close liaison 
with Leylonstone/Ilford, who 
share our ground." 

Walthamstow were forced 
to turn amateur earlier this 
season because of financial 
problems are are now bottom 
of the Vauxhall-Opel premier 
division without a point from 
12 matches. 

• Gary O’Reilly, the Brighton 
defender, who has been unable 
to play for six weeks because 
of a severe hamstring injury, 
returns from an .Amsterdam 
clinic at the weekend after two 
weeks of intensive treatment. 
O’Reilly pulled a hamstring in 
the match at Plymouth Argyle 
on September 13

Sheridan has to wait 


John Sheridan, the promis- 
ing Leeds United midfield 
player, has been called up for 
the first time by the Republic 
of Ireland for their friendly 
international against Poland 
on November 12. But the 
former Republic youth and 
under-21 international may 
not make the journey to 
Warsaw. Only 18 of the 22- 
strong squad will be travelling 
to the Polish capital, and the 
manager. Jack Chariton, said: 
“John has a great future, but I 
don’t think he is quite in the 
international class as yet.” 

At the same time, Charlton 
admiis be is anticipating a 


number of withdrawals be- 
cause of club commitments. 
NialJ Quinn, of Arsenal, and 
Mick Kennedy, of Ports- 
mouth, who played against 
Iceland and Czechoslovakia in 
friendlies last summer, have 
also been named.

Charlton Athletic, hit by an 
injury crisis, are trying to sign 
Reuben Agboola, the Sunder- 
land defender, on a month’s 
loan. Agboola, aged 24, played 
90 first division games foi 
Southampton before moving 
to join his former manager, 
Lawrie McMenemy, at Raker 
Park. 


Chariton, who have won six 
successive matches, suffered 
another injury blow when 
John Humphrey, their full- 
back, twisted an ankle in 
Tuesday night's i-0 Utile- 
wood's Cup victory over 
Queen's Park Rangers. He will 
be out of action for three 
weeks. They are also without 
Colin Walsh, their midfield 
player, who injured a knee in 
Saturday’s win at West Ham 
United. 


Lemrie Lawrence, Chari- 
ton's manager, said that his 
small squad was stretched to 
the limit because of the inju- 
ries. He was hoping to speak to 
Agboola last night 

Lawrence, who also has 
John Pender and Alan Curfo- 
isbley on the injured list, must 
attempt to patch up his de- 
pleted squad in time for 
Saturday’s visit to Arsenal. He 
said: “Injuries have forced my 
hand, but this is probably a 
good time to strengthen the 
squad, anyway." 

At Selhursi Park on Tues- 
day. Chariton were within 
three minutes of having that 
victory over QPR snatched 
from their grasp. Floodlight 
failure caused a 20-minute 
delay during the second half 
and the referee, Mike James, 
of Horsham, would have 
abandoned the match had the 
power not been restored 
within another three minutes. 


Howard Wilkinson, the 
Sheffield Wednesday man- 
ager, has claimed that Lawrie 
Madden's sending off in his 
team’s 4-0 littlewoods Cop 
defeat at Everton on Wednes- 
day night was prompted by a 
case of mistaken identity. 

The centre half was dis- 
missed by the referee, Mal- 
colm Heath, of Stoke-on- 
Trent, for a 69th minute foul 
on the Everton forward 
Graeme Sharp, his second 
bookable offence. But the 
controversy surrounded his 
first booking, also fora foul in 
the 50th minute. Wednesday 
claim that the guilty player 
was not Madden but fellow 
defender. Paul Hart. 

“The referee blew for a foul 
by Hart and then booked 
Madden," Wilkinson said. 
“Referees make mistakes. We 
received a’ circular about mis- 
taken identity but when I went 
to dear up the matter with the 
referee after the game, I was 
told to go away. It would 
appear clear to everyone, and 
hopefully to the assessor, that 
there was a mistake in 
identity.” 

Wednesday, who were 24) 
down but fighting their way 
back into the game Mien 
Madden was dismissed, con- 
ceded late goals to Derek 


Mountfiek! and Paul Wil- 
kinson, his second of the 
match. 

Steve Sedgeley dem 
onstrated the precodousness 
of youth to make it a hap 
night for Coventry C 
Sedgeley- aged 18, stepped up 
to take the 84th minute pen- 
alty which gave Coventry a 2- 
1 win over Oldham Athletic. 
As his older and more experi- 
enced colleagues hovered un- 
certainly over the spot kick, 
the young Londoner, in only 
his ninth first team match, 
strode forward and planted his 
shot into the neL Cyrille Regis 
scored Coventry’s first goa 

Chelsea locked themselves 
in their dressing room after 
their shock 2-1 defeat against 
Cardiff City, of the fourth 
division, at Ninian Park. The 
London club's manager, John 


Hollins, eventually emerged 
to admit: “That’s the worst 
we've played. We got exactly 
what we deserved — and that 
was nothing. Cardiff could 
have had a couple more: They 
played well and took their 
chances but we didn't get off 
the ground." 

Hollins, whose future at* 
Stamford Bridge must be in 
the balance, added: “It's np to 
the players — and myself — to 
pot it right. 


Final inquest begins 


That would have meant 
disappointment for Steve 
Thompson, whose 30th-min- 
ute goal was his first for 
Charlton. 


The football authorities in 
Scotland have begun their 
investigation into the Skol 
Cup final between Rangers 
and Celtic last Sunday. The 
report of the match referee, 
David Syme, will be consid- 
ered on Monday by the SFA’s 
referee disciplinary 
committee. 

The SFA received Mr 
Syme’s lengthy report and it is 
understood it has paid special 
attention to the incidents 
which marred the showpiece 
game, which Rangers won 2-1. 
Mo Johnston, the Celtic for- 
ward, was sent off, nine others 
were booked and the game 
erupted in the final minutes 
when Tony Shepherd, the 


Celtic midfield player, was 
shown a red card but was 
allowed to remain on the fieki 

David Hay, the Celtic man- 
ager, went on to the pitch to 
calm his players but after the 
game he stated that it might be 
better if Celtic wereto apply to 
play in the English League. 

The referee’s report will' be 
sent to all the parties involved 
before being placed in front of 
the referee . disciplinary 
committee on Monday, when 
they will decide what further 
action to take. 


To add to the tension, 
Rangers and Celtic meet again 
on Saturday at Paridiead’in a 
premier division match.

Final touch 


Ray Howell, an engineer 
from Manchester, put the 
finishing touches to a brilliant 
win by Chortton-cum-Hardy 
in the Hennessey Cognac na- 
tional pro-am golf champion- 
ship at the Princess Country 
Gub in the Bahamas. Is a 
dramatic climax to the 54 
holes, better-ball, com- 
petition. Howell, aged 33, 
earned his dub professional, 
David Streeton, the £3,000 
first prize when he sank an 
eight-foot pun for a birdie at 
the first extra hole. It made 
amends for his three putts at 
the 1 8th. which allowed 
Sundridge Park. Kent, to tie 
on 205 with a final round 73. 
Chorlton finished with a 69. 


Cut price 


Des Drummond, the Great 
Britain and Leigh wing three- 
quarter, is asking the Rugby 
League to cut his £100,000 
transfer fee. He made an 
application for a reduction 
before the management 
committee in Leeds yesterday. 


Late drinks 


Steve Phillips, the Torquay 
United forward, has been 
sacked following an incident 
in which five or six young 
players were discovered drink- 
ing late on Saturday night

Palmer calls it a day 

By David Hands, Rugby Correspondent 


John Palmer, who cap- 
tained Bath to their third 
successive John Player Special 
Cup victory last season, has 
retired from international 
competition. As a con- 
sequence be has withdrawn 
from the national training 
squad which leaves today for 
four days in POrtugaL He has 
been replaced by Ralph 
Knibbs, the uncapped Bristol 
centre. 


came an England squad mem- 
ber ay ear later. 


Palmer, aged 29, who was 
capped twice in South Africa 
in 1984 and as a replacement 
against Ireland last season, no 
longer has the commitment 
required for international 
rugby. “I have been thinking 
for some time about how 
much longer I was going to 
play,” Palmer said yesterday. 
“I have been in top rugby for 
12 years and J have decided 
now just to {day for enjoyment 
with Bath." 


He was a replacement in the 
grand-slam season of I980bul 
did not win his first cap until 
the 1984 England tour to 
South Africa, when his tack- 
ling — as much as the elusive 
running which ma<t» him a 
promising stand-off half in his 
early years r- won him a place. 
Earlier this year he captained 
England's B team in Italy. 
“Playing at Twickenham last 
season (as a replacement for 
the injured Kevin Simms) was 
what I always wanted and 
helped me make up my 
mind.” Palmer said.

Edwards to quit 


He will not be available for 
the divisional championship 
either, which opens the way 
for a potentially exciting 
combination of Knibbs and 
Simon Haiiiday in the south- 
west division. Palmer went to 
Canada with the tmder-23 
squad in 1977 and first be-

coach for the last five years, is 
quitting at . the end of -the 
season. Edwards, who played 
for Lewes, took over from the

Edwards said that foe primary 
reason for his decision has 
been foe Rugby Football

spoke in his favourite pah «

by supporters who are intent

Garner said that o June

would like to play in one-day 
cricket and coach next year. 
“As long as I stay fit I can 
offer a lot more," Garner said. 
“I told Peter that be and

“Vnr Richards and I should 
not be made scapegoats for

Botham leaves with as, the 
dab will be back where R

( chairma n of the cricket 
committee) said to me that in

it first has to go backward," he

“The dnb has made mis-

When asked whether 

allegations that he did not help 

Somerset 1 s young players were 
true. Garner sank “A lot of

“I have ako bees accused of

am. If I see things dim are

In response to other ques-

a race issue, that he had had 
“rnn-ms” with two committee

said.

playing for West Indies but if 
Somerset members vote in
