behind 
strike ballots 


By Nicholas Wood and Tun Jones 

TtSdLs ^ ri *? g S* 1 * 3 ** 00 of younger 

Congress gen- trade union leaders who 
era secretary, presented Mr increasingly recognize that the 


Neil Kinnock, the Labour 
wader, with a big pre-election 
bonus when he swung the 
movement behind strike baj- 
tojs on the opening day erf the 
TUC conference in Brighton 
yesterday. 

Significantly, however, in a 
move that is bound to give 
fresh ammunition to Govern- 
ment critics, the conference 
did not specifically .give its 
assent to “pre-strike” ballots. 

In a manoeuvre that looked 
suspiciously like a fudge to 
placate left-wing leaders, 
particularly Mr Ron Todd, 
general secretary of the Trans- 
port and General Workers’ 
Union, Mr Willis referred to 
strikes “relating” to a ballot 

Mr Willis, whose leadership 
of the congress was as. much 
on trial as Mr Kinnodfs new- 
look Labour Party, spear- 
headed the leadership’s 
onslaught on a move by the 
while collar engineering 
union, TASS, to outlaw any 
state interference in the in- 
ternal procedures of unions. 

He described the joint 
TUC-Labour Party document 
pledging a new order to re- 
place the Government's 
employment legislation as 
“historic”, ushering in a 
framework of rights and 
responsibilities fundamental 
to the labour movement’s 
standing in the eyes of the 
British public.' 

Mr Willis (fid not mince his 
words and was folio wed by the 


TUC has to come to terms 
with the upheaval in the jobs 
market, swinging employment 
away from traditional heavy 
industry to part-time work, 
often m the service sector, 
done mainly by-women. 

To applause from the dele- 
gates, he said: “This is no* 
cynical pre-election deal. 
Balloting is here to stay. 



Mr Kenneth Clarke, first 
Tory Cabinet minister to 
attend the TUC congress for 
seven years. 

because our members favour 
h. 

“We are committed to mak- 
ing the trade union movement 
ever more representative and 
more democratic because that 
way we will be stronger and 
more effective” 

Mr Willis, under the spot- 
light because of his fumbling 
past performances, warned the 


delegates that the public 
would not be fobbed off with 
ritual den on nations of 
interference in union affairs. 

Instead, the unions ^ to 
unite behind a policy agre ed 
with the Labour Party, laying 
a solid foundation for Mr 
Kinn ock’s entry to Downing 
Street. 

He said: “We want ballots - 
with proper facilities, polling 
stations at the workplace, 
meetings in working ti»w 
genuine democracy.” 

He added: “The new statu- 
tory framework will also entail 
general principles for inclu- 
sion in onion rule books. 

“These will be based on a 
right for union members to 
have a secret ballot on on 
derisions relating to strikes, 
and for the method of election 
of union executives to be 
based on a system of s e cret 
ballots. But there will be no 
imposition of rigid 
procedures.” 

The movement’s willing- 
ness to face up to the 
in working practices and 
growing eclipse of mass manu- 
facturing was underlined by 
Mr John Edmnwtf general 
secretary of the General, 
Municipal, Boilermakers and 
Allied Trades Union, the 
country's third biggest 

In an impassioned address, 
he said that the reality for 
many people lay not in well- 
organized factories or Iarae 
comfortable offices but in the 
menial, low-paid occupations

.. The -print unions dealt a 
heavy How 'yesterday to the 
authority of Mt Norman Wil- 
lis when they won a stormy 
and acrimonious debate at the 
conference, censuring the 
leadership's handling of the 
News International dispute at

By almost two to one, 
delegates voted to order the 
General Council to reopen 
disciplinary action against die

members are working at the

month confrontation. 

Mr Tony Dubbins, general

attack on the council's failure 
by a narrow majority last 
February not to tell leaders of 
the Electrical, Electronic, 
Telecommunica tions and

instruct their members to stop 
working for the company.

Fresh volcano menace 

From Gavin BeH, Bamenda, Cameroon 


European and Israeli sci- 
entists are investigating signs 
of another potential disaster in 
Cameroon. 

Preliminary surveys in- 
dicate increasing volcanic 
activity in foe vicinity of 
Wum, 25 miles from foe seme 
of the gas explosion that killed 
1,500 people on August 21. 

The missions are reported 
to have discovered a 50 per 
cent rise in foe emission of 
gases into a lake filling the 
crater of the volcano at Wum. 


General -James Tataw, of 
Cameroon Infantry Forces, 
told The Times yesterday that 
be had left a Swiss team to 
corrobate the findings. 

“There are no immediate 
plans to evacuate foe area. I 
am awaiting foe Swiss report 
before taking any action.” 

Wum is already the scene of 
bustling activity. It is one of 
two distribution centres for 
relief aid to 3,000 survivors of 
the disaster at Lake Nyos.

Visa requirement 
to be introduced 


By George Hill 

. Visitors to Britain from five 
Asian and African c oun tries 
historically linked with the 
Commonwealth will in future 
have to obtain visas in ad- 
vance, the Government an- 
nounced yesterday. 

- The Home Office carried 
die day against Foreign Office 
misgivings as ministers de- 
cided to introduce new rules 
within the next few weeks re- 
quiring visitors from India,' 

Pakistan, Bangladesh^ Ghana 
and Nigeria to obtain visas in 
their onpra d oo n tr igg foefere- 
tra veiling to Britamj^ • - . 

■ The'' Home Secrgary; Mr 
Dongas Hurd, saMl if. tire 
announcement caused a surge 
m-foe number of passengers 
from the countries involved, 
foe visa requirement would be 
imposed immediately. 

He stressed foar there was to 
be no change in the criteria for 
admission and that the rides 
were being altered to reduce 
delays to passengers. 

Visitors queuing at im- 
migration desks frequently 
have to wait an hour and a 
half and up to two and a half 
hours at peak periods. Delays 
have been increasizigin recent 
months, putting a rising strain 
on staff and on accommoda- 
tion for applicants waiting for 
further questioning. ' 

Official sources emphasized 
that all the countries con- 
cerned except Pakistan al- 


ready require visitors from 
Britain to have visas, and that 
fewer than one per cent of 
visitors from the five coun- 
tries concerned had applica- 
tions refused. 

To set at rest Foreign Office 
concern about the cost of the 
change, the Home Office will 
be bearing foe main expense, 
which is expected to be about 
£14 million'a year. Between 40 
and SO Home Office staff will 
be sent to -British missions in 
the five countries, and about 
Ihe spnre“ i«imber ^fogal 
workers vwff be recruited. 

- Mr Wjhfld Katfiffiaa, foe 
shadow Home Secretary, said 
foe introduction of visas was 
“an act of outright racialism” 

'“ft" has- nothing at all td do 
with immigration control and 
wifi have no effect whatever 
on foe number of immigrants 
from these countries settling 
in Britain.” 

Mr Alan Berth, Liberal 
spokesman on foreign affairs, 
pointed out that no visa 
requirement was imposed on 
visitors to Britain from Sooth 
Africa. He said the Govern- 
ment should deal with delays 
az British airports by provid- 
ing adequate facilities there, 
not by imposing a rule which 
cannot be interpreted as “any- 
thing other than racial preju- 
dice”

Youth vote

Nearly two-thirds of young 
people who have got the vote 
since Mrs Margaret Thatcher 
came to power fed that foe is 
out of touch with them, 
according to a poll conducted 
exclusively for The Times on 
“Thatcher’s children”. 

The poll by MORI (Market

national) shows widespread 
hostility to Mrs Thatcher 
among yoimg voters. Besides 
the 61 percent who think: her

and‘60 percent think she

Mr Neil Kinnock. Labour 
leader, is seen as down-to- 
earth, honest, and as under- 
standing Britain’s problems. 
Bui judged mi leadership

is . one point ah e a d of him, 
with 29 per cent fowifctn^ her

Among those e xp re ssi ng

Labour is running at 49 per-

have come of voting age since 
June 1979..

Heavy loss of 
life as Soviet 
liner sinks 

From Christopher Walker, Moscow 
The Soviet Union launched Mr Averin, foe first Mos- 


a massive rescue operation 
yesterday to try to cope with 
one of foe worst maritime 
disasters in its recent history 
after foe overnight sinking in 
the Black Sea of a passenger 
liner with 870 berths and foe 
capacity to carry up to 1,000 
people. 

The disaster occurred at 
around midnight on Sunday 
when the 17,053-ton Admiral 
Nhkhimov — a 50-year-old 
German-built boat refur- 
bished after being sunk in foe 
Second World War — was in 
violent collision with a large 
Soviet cargo vessel, the Pyotr 
Vasev, soon after leaving foe 
port of Novorossiysk. 

The seriousness of the 
disaster was indicated by foe 
Kremlin's immediate decision 
to establish a full government 
inquiry under foe chairman- 
ship of a leading Politburo 
.member, Mr Geidar Aliyev. 

Western diplomats were 
surprised at the speed with 
which news of the accident — 
albeit sketchy — was released 
by Tass, the official news 
agency. They said this was in 
keeping with the new policy of 
Mr Gorbachov to be more 
open about domestic dis- 
asters. 

By last night the final 
casualty toll was still un- 
known, but Western sources 
said the indications were that 
it could prove high. 

Mr Igor Avenn, chief ex- 
ternal affairs director of foe 
Navy Ministry, said passenger 
lists were being checked to 
establish how many had been 
onboard. 

It was not immediately dear 
if the liner's 340 crew and staff 
were included in the figure of 
1,000 supplied by Mr Averin. 

Because of the speed with 
which the elderly finer went 
down, both Western and So- 
viet naval experts were 
pessimistic about the chances 
of survival for the unknown 
number of passengers who 
had already retired to their 
cabins when the collision 
occurred. 


cow official to comment pub- 
licly on the disaster, said 
civilian and military rescue 
teams were still fighting to 
save lives and it was hoped 
many would have survived in 
foe warm waters of the Black 
Sea. 

He said foecaigo vessel had 
been less seriously damaged 
and it appeared there were no 
casualties among foe crew. 

According to the Navy Min- 
istry official, there were no 
foreign passengers on the 
liner, which was canying hun- 
dreds of Soviet holidaymakers 
on a summer cruise between 
the Black Sea pons of Odessa, 
and Batumi. 

The sinking was foe second 
of a Soviet cruise liner this 
year and has already raised 
question marks over the effec- 
tiveness of the personnel man- 



ning the large Soviet merchant 
fleet. 

In February, the 22.000-ton 
Soviet passenger liner foe 
Mikhail Lermantov sank off 
New Zealand’s South Island. 
All 737 passengers were res- 
cued and only one crewman 
died in the accident, which 
was officially blamed on the 
New Zealand pilot. 

The Government daily 
Izvestia reported last week 
that the Soviet chief navigator 
had been given a four-year 
suspended prison sentence for 
failing to contradict the pilot's 
“incomprehensible order” to 
take the ship through dan- 
gerous straits where it hit a 
rock. 

In 1983 more than 100 
people were killed when the 
pasenger steamer Alexander 
Suvorov rammed a railway 
bridge on the Volga.

David Bishop, the Welsh 
international scrum half, was 
yesterday sent to prison for a 
month for knocking out an 
opponent with a punch during 
Pontypoors Rugby . Union 
ie against Newbndge last 
ober. 

Bishop is the first inter- 
national from Britain in any 
sport to be jailed for violence 
on foe field and now fees a 

possible suspension for life

leets in Cardiff on Thursday. 

Bishop, aged 25. described

Newport Crown 


iCKa 

Mr Patrick Harrington, for 


the prosecution, told the court 
that Bishop had trapped 
Jarman on the ground in an 
o fifth e-ball modem and hit 
him with a single blow. It took 
Jarman three to four minutes 
to recover consciousness. 

The referee was unsighted, 
but Mr Harrington told foe 
court that spectators who saw 
foe incident said that if the 
referee had seen the Wow he 
would have had no option buz 
to send Bishop off 

Mr Peter Griffiths, for the 
defence, said that Bishop had 
delivered one punch in the 
heated atmosphere of a hard- 
fought local derby match. 

In 1979, Bishop received a 
Royal Humane Society award 
for rescuing a woman and her 
child from a river but, in 1980, 
served a year in prison for his 
part in a nightclub brawL He 
was once commended by the

a man armed with a knife. 

‘ Judge Martin Stephens. QC, 
told Bishop that players must 
be aware that criminal assaults 
coy Id not be overlooked. The 
courts had duly to players, foe 
V- 


public and the game itself to 
make it known that violence 
on or off the .field would - be 
punished by imprisonment. 

Mr Ray Williams, secretary 
of the Welsh Rugby Union, 
said yesterday that several 
dub players had been banned 
for life from rugby fix 1 violence 
on foe field, but he could not 
say whether this would occur 
in the case of Bishop, who has 
had a previous suspension for 
stamping on an opposing

Mr Tony Simons, the 
Pontypool team secretary.* 
said that Bishop had contin- 
ued to play for the club after

But at the end of last season he 
was not picked. 

It is widely believed that 
Bishop was tokl by Pontypool 
that he would not be selected 
until he had mended his ways.

THE TIMES TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 2 1986 








By Peter Davenport 


4 . . Mr James Anderton, Chief 
.Constable of Greater Man- 
! Chester, last night made his 
1 'Grst public defence of his role 
* in the Stalker affair. 

He said tbe investigation 
' into his deputy was “justified, 
necessary, and properly 
. conducted”. 

I ! In response to members of 
v^his Labour-controlled police 
'‘authority who are considering 
questioning him about his 
."private life, friends, and use of 
£ police facilities. Mr Anderton 
said that he wished to refute 
.any such allegations 
unequivocally. 

^ The statement from the 
. .chief constable was his first 
w ^public comment on the 
..Stalker affair, apart from a 
' brief “welcome back” state- 
ment last week when his 
C.deputy went back to his desk. 
1 - Last night, he said: “I am 
being repeatedly requested 
through the media, and by 
other sources to make a 
comprehensive public state- 
ment about the recent inquiry 
concerning my deputy, and in 
particular I am asked to 
explain my personal role in 
tbe matter, and bow it all 
fcrgan. 

-* “Unfortunately, I am not 
ftee to do so. Any detailed 
public statement at this time, 
reven if it were thought proper 
"to make one, is certain to be 
completely inopportune as the 
origins of the affair are sur- 
rounded by other matters 
which are still under active 
police investigation.” 

, Detectives are still in- 
’• vestigaiing the affairs of Mr 
Kevin Taylor, the wealthy 
Manchester businessman 


whose friendship with Mr 
John Stalker, the Greater 
Manchester deputy chief con- 
stable, was the subject of the 
investigation by Mr Colin 
Sampson, Chief Constable of 
West Yorkshire. 

A report is with die fraud 
division of the Director of 
Public Prosecutions, but tbe 
director is awaiting further 
details from police in 
Manchester. 

Mr Anderton added: “I 
wish to make it absolutely 
clear, however, that there were 
no conspiracies attached to 
the case. 

“As to current allegations 
against me. I refute all of them 


unequivocally. If any person 
possesses informal 


possesses information or ev- 
idence suggesting alleged mis- 
conduct on my part, they 
should pass it immediately to 
the chairman and clerk of tbe 
police authority for their 
consideration.” 

It was Mr Anderton who 
took the allegations against his 
deputy to the police authority 
and the independent Police 
Complaints Authority. 

The subsequent inquiry ctat 
about £250,000, lasted three 
months, and culminated in a 
1,500-page report from Mr 
Sampson that recommended 
that Mr Stalker should face a 
disciplinary tribunal on 10 
counts, including alleged mis- 
use of police vehicles and 
unwise association with crim- 
inals through his friendship 
with Mr Taylor, a man who 
has no criminal record but 
who has admitted having 
friends who da 

The police authority is next 
due to meet on September 19.

Production arrangements 
involving five nations for a

Belfast jail 
brutality 
is denied 


By Richard Ford 


The Government yesterday 
rejected allegations of brutal- 
ity in Northern Ireland’s re* 
mand; 'liiOirT 92-- inmates 
refuser food for the 
second day. 

Mr Nicholas Scott, Par- 
liamentary Under-Secretary 
of State at the Northern 
Ireland Office, refuted claims 
made by a Roman Catholic 
priest that there had been ilL 
treatment of some remand 
prisoners at Crumlin Road jail 
in Belfast, and he urged tbe 
men to end their protesL 

Mr Scott said that anyone 
with any evidence should 
bring it to the authorities, who 
would investigate it through 
the proper channels.He bad 
seen no evidence of ill-treat- 
ment, but if Fr Denis Faul, the 
priest reporting the allega- 
tions. had information then he 
should produce it 

Ninety-two of the 156 pris- 
oners in B-wing of the jail 
began a protest six days ago 
when four inmates refused 
food. As remand prisoners, 
they are entitled to daily food 
parcels from relatives and are 
still taking liquids. The Ro- 
man Catholic and Protestant 
prisoners, who are not facing 
terrorist charges, claim that 
they have been beaten and 
that the wing is overcrowded. 

Fr Faul reported claims that 
between four and five officers 
had beaten prisoners on sev- 
eral occasions, and that one 
incident involved officers 
suggesting that young pris- 
oners should take their own 
life. 

He is to raise the issue with 
Amnesty International and 
with Mr Peter Bany, the Irish 
Republic's Minister for For- 
eign Affairs. 

Mr John Hall, assistant 
secretary of the Prison 
Officers' Association, yes- 
terday rejected any inference 
that prison officers used 
brutality against prisoners. 
“There is a recognized system 
whereby a prisoner can raise 
any grievance through the 
proper channels,” he said.

School’s new start 
after racial rows 


By a Staff Reporter 


Pupils at the Drummond 
Middle School in Bradford, 
the focus of heated debate 
over the alleged racist policies 
of its former headmaster, 
started a new term yesterday 
amid hopes of a more settled 
future. 

Mr Ray Honeyford left last 
December, and yesterday the 
520 pupils began life under a 
new, permanent headmaster. 

Mr Leslie Hall, aged 52. and 
a teacher for 29 years, feces the 
task of rebuilding confidence 
and working relationships at 
the school which suffered 
badly during the three years of 
dispute surrounding Mr 
Honeyford’s views on multi- 
racial education. 

In a statement issued 
through the Bradford Educa- 
tion Department, Mr Hall 
said: “I am aware that certain 
characteristics will need to be 
addressed and I therefore wish 
to put due regard to the high 
ethnic minority composition 
at the school in establishing 
working relationships between 
the school and the com- 
munity. 

“During the coming weeks I 
anticipate working with a 
committed teaching staff in 
formulating curriculum poli- 
cies which are compatible 
with the current middle school 
philosophy.” 

Mr HalL who has held two 



-Mr Leslie Hall: rebuilding 
confidence. 

other middle school headships 
in the city, said his most 
important task was getting to 
know pupils and staff. 

Children from ethnic 
minorities comprise 95 per 
cent of the pupils at Drum- 
mond Middle SchooL 

Mr Honeyford, aged 51, 
accepted early retirement and 
a financial settlement of 
around £ 1 60,000 in December 
last year. 

A temporary headmaster 
ran the school before the 
appointment of Mr Hall so 
that, in the words of education 
officials, it could benefit from 
a cooling off period. 


Headmistress vows to 


fight dismissal 


By David Cross 


Mrs Barbara May. who was 
suspended from duty as head- 
mistress of a school in 
Ban stead. Surrey. Iasi week, 
has vowed that she will fight 
to keep her job. 

The 290 primary school 
children from 

Woodman st erne County First 
and Middle School wiQ return 
from their holidays today 
without a headmistress be- 
cause of the teaching dispute 
over the “three Rs".. 

“Under no circumstances 
whatsoever will 1 resign.” Mrs 
May has said. “I'll see them in 
Strasbourg first. I’ll be the Ray 
Honeyford of the South." 

“We liked tbe school as it 
was,” Mrs Jackie Potter, a 
parent governor with a daugh- 
ter aged six and a son aged 
nine at the school, said. “We 
knew when Mr May was 


appointed 18 months ago that 
changes were coming but we 
didn't expect them to happen 
so suddenly.” 

But not all parents share the 
critical view of Mrs May. 

Mr Mary Reddin. who has 
a daughter aged nine and a son 
aged six at the school has 
written to parents urging them 
to support “the majority of 
parents who wish io give her 
{Mr May) encoura^ment to 
continue in her present post ” 

Nearly 20 parents have 
responded positively to her 
appeal and she expects more 
replies when children return 
to school today. 

“A lot of us didn't like the 
old regime. The school was 
run on strict disciplinary lines, 
there was never any display of 
children’s work and it was 
strictly tiie Three Rs’.”

Farnborough Air Show 


US stake in Airbus unlikely 


By Edward Townsend 
Industrial Correspondent 


Collaboration between the 
Airbus Industrie consortium 
and McDonnell Douglas of 
the United States to produce 
tbe next Airbus airliner, a 
move favoured by the British 
Government in the hope of 
cutting investment costs, 
looked increasingly unlikely 
yesterday. 

Although talks are continu- 
ing. it was dear that Me- 
Donneff Douglas has made a 
big commitment to its own 
new long-range aircraft, the 
MD-1 1, which will be a direct 
competitor to the proposed 
airbus A-330 and A-340 air- 
craft. 

McDonnell Douglas exec- 
utives announced plans for a 
family of MD-1 1 tri-jets 
including an advanced ver- 
sion. 40 feet longer titan the 
existing DC10, which will fly 
380 people up to 8,500 miles 
non-stop and be a major 
competitor to Boeing's 747 
Jumbo jet. - 

Mr Louis Harrington, Mc- 
Donnell Douglas vice-presi- 
dent and general manager for 
advanced products, said the 
company had received 
commitments from three cus- 
tomers for the MD-1 1 and it 
planned to launch the pro- 
gramme by the end of 1986. 
Deliveries would begin in 
early 1990. 

Airbus and McDonnell 
Douglas have been discussing 


Aer Lingus 
jobs at risk 


The Irish Republic's state- 
ownedaMme is planning big 
cats in its workforce in the face 
of low-cost competition and 
the need to replace its Beet 
(Richard Font writes). 

Act Lingas has shed 1,000 
jobs in the past five years hot 
company sources indicate a 
further 500 from the present 
5,000 employees will leave the 
airline. It is freed with serious 
fimiwrMi problems as it must 
find Ir£l ,000 million to buy 
new aircraft for its American 
and European operation. 

A group of aril servants and 
senior airline executives are 
studying the strategy needed 
to finance a new fleet but the 
airline has been warned by Ik 
Garret FitzGerald'S admin- 
istration that it cannot rely on 
the State for substantial funds 
because of the economic prob- 
lems faring tbe nation. 

The wrlioe is also faring 
growing {competition from pri- 
vate operators and has had to 
maintain Joss-rontes to New 
York and Boston u the na- 
tional interest. 


the prospect of some form of 
co-operation in an attempt to 
compete more efficiently with 
Boeing. 

The British Government 
will be asked by British Aero- 
space later this year to provide 


launch aid to cover a substan- 
tial proportion of the £500 
million it needs to develop 
wings for the A-330 and A- 
340. But ministers have so fer 
indicated an unwillingness to 
agree to covering tbe entire 
sum. 

Mr Harrington said collab- 
oration with Airbus could 
make sense. However, the 
talks were “conceptual” and 
any deal had to make eco- 
nomic sense. 

There appeared to be some 
possibility of the two com- 
panies working together on 
the A-330, which has a shorter 
range than the A-340, because 
it did not clash with existing 
McDonnell Douglas plans. 

‘Mini Concorde’ 
for businessmen 

A 12-scat supersonic exec- 
utive jet capable of frying from 
London to New York in 3ft 
hours was unveiled yesterday 
by British Aerospace. 

The- new jet, still at the 
concept stage, was described 
by BAe executives as the com- 
pany’s answer to filling top 
class business travel demand 
in the post-Concorde era. 

The new jet powered by 
three engines, is envisaged as a 
mini Concorde, a delta wing 
aircraft capable of flying at 
about I,20Gmph, slightly 
slower than Concorde, ft 
would carry 12 passengers as 
fer as 3,800 miles, easily 
covering transatlantic routes. 


Franchises 
for ITV 
firms to be 
extended 


The Government is expect- 
ed to introduce legislation to 
extend the franchises of the 
ITV companies for two or 

three years while it considers a 

new policy for awarding con- 
tracts. The franchising review 
was provoked by the July re- 
port of the Peacock commit- 
tee, some of whose members 
suggested that the right to 
operate television stations be 
put up for auction. 

But the independent tele* 
virion broadcasters yesterday 
expressed alarm at the pros- 
pect that their franchises will 
be extended for only three 
years while the Home Office 
conducts a broad-ranging pol- 
icy review looking into the 
Peacock proposals. 

“Extending the contracts 
would just extend the uncer- 
tainty,” a Thames Television 
spokesman said. The current 
eight-year franchise system 
makes “everybody neurotic 
and frantic” and should be 
replaced by a system of “roll- 
ing” franchises in which cont- 
racts are indefinite, subject to 
being revoked only for good 
cause, be said. 

Some ITV companies are 
lobbying against the short- 
term renewal plan in spite of a 
directive from the Indepen- 
dent Broadcasting Authority 
to leave the negotiating to the 
IBA. The Independent Tele- 
vision Companies Associa- 
tion, which represents all ITV 
companies, will meet next 
week to discuss its strategy 
and the content of a sub- 
mission to the Home Secret- 
ary. 

Mr David Shaw, secretary 
general of the association, said 
his members want the Gov- 
ernment to renounce the 
suggestion that franchises be 
put out to tender. 

Talks between IBA and 
Home Office officials have 
been going on for some weeks 
and do not appear to offer 
much hope to the ITV com- 
panies that the short-term 
extension can be avoided. An 
IBA spokesman said foe Gov- 
ernment needed foe extra time 
to decide wfaat to do about foe 
future of broadcasting. 

Under normal circum- 
stances the IBA would ad- 
vertise new franchises next 
year and award them in 1988 
to take effect in 1989.

ITV’s £2.5 minion production

Immigration Service swamped 


250 detainees are put up in hotels 


By Peter Evans, Home Affairs Correspondent 


Two hundred and fifty air 
passengers Caring immigr ation 
questioning have been given 
hotel accommodation near 
Heathrow during foe seren^ 
week period which ended last 
weekend because there was 
nowhere else to detain them, 
or they had nowhere to stay if 
temporarily admitted to Bri- 
tain. 

Although they were in the 
care of Seonicor staff; about 
20 had “removed themselves,” 
a Home Office spokesman 
said yesterday. 

“These were people who 
bad arrived at immigration 
from abroad and were the sub- 
ject of questioning which re- 
quired their remaining dose to 
Heathrow.” 

The Immigration Service is 
in a state of siege, as its places 
of detention overflow. Yes- 
terday Harmondsworth was 
op to its capacity of 65 behind 
its locked front door, as de- 
tainees of nine different na- 
tionalities crowded the dining 
room, with a choice of 11 main 
aliline-style coerses, ranging 
from carry to cod. 

Two Turks have been there 
since July 9. Sometimes pas- 
sengers arriving ax Heathrow 
tear up passports to frustrate 
their removal, then it is diffi- 
cult to get foreign embassies to 
accept them for what they are. 
Nine have absconded from 
Har mo ndsworth this year. 

Only one room has bars on 
the window. An official said: 
“There can be occasions, for*

tunately rare, when people 
lose control and start smash- 
ing and crashing round with a 
real risk of danger to detainees 
and staff,” 

Talking to detainees shows 
that the requirement for visas 


reduce pressure on tbe Immig- 
ration Service. 

Mr John Bosco Nyunnribe, 
who said he was a political 
detainee for almost two 
months in Ghana, managed to 
get to Sudan where he was de- 
tained again for two or three 
weeks and then pot on an 
jalcraft without a passport 


“You had to hoy food in 
detention in Sudan or yon 
starved,” he said. He said 
relations between staff and 
detainees in Harmondsworth 
is “cordial”. 

Bat the detainees look apa- 
thetic and bored. Miss Maty 
SashOcala, a Tamil, aged 23, 
has been at Harmondsworth 
for nearly four weeks. She was 
mi her way to Canada with a 
visa from its embassy in Delhi, 
bet after arriving by Air frutia, 
Air Canada would not take her 
on, she said. Her brother is 
also detained!. 

She is well but said: “It is 


absolutely terrible. You just 
get depressed. Yon can't watch 
television for 12 hours a day.

Maxwell launches European edition of China Daily 


By Robin Young 

Yesterday’s issue of China 
Daily, the first to be published 
in western Europe by Mr 
Robert Maxwell's Minor 
Group Newspapers, brought 
readers a front-page picture of 
China’s first all-women brass 
band, news foal a bankrupt 
factory «s to be sold in what is 
probably China’s first prop- 
erty auction since foe com- 
munists came to power in 
1949. and a report that foe 
English model, Helen 
Fa irb rather, has triumphed 
over 45 rivals in Nagasaki to 
bfrome Miss International. 


Mr Maxweirs . 
statement with which be 
planned to swap congratula- 
tions with foe Chinese ambas- 
sador in London, Mr Hu 
Dingy i. included foe remark 
that Ckina Daily “tells us not 
only about China but also 
about how China sees us - it 
might be said to hold a Mirror 
up to us.“ In foe event though, 
the Mirror Group chairman 
surprisingly lacked foe audac- 
ity to deliver this self-serving 
line. 

He did. though, teh foe 
paper's editor, Mr Feng 
Xiliang; “We are not doing 
this for love *qf your brown 


eyes, but in foe hope of further 
improving business between 
our two countries." Mr Feng 
did not seem to mind. 

Mr Maxwell has been doing 
business with China since 
1949. publishing books and 
technical journals. A joint 
enterprise of his recently be- 
gan producing China's first 
pocket paperback books. 

China Daily's lead story 
yesterday, appropriately, re- 
ported vice-premier Li Peng, 
forecasting “bright prospects” 
for China's business links with 
western Europe. The front 
page also earned congratula- 
tory messages from foe Chi- 


nese prime minister, Zhao 
Ziyang, and Mr Thatcher, 
both welcoming foe contribu- 
tion the European edition 
would make to international 
understanding. 

The eight-page papa: costs 
80p per issue in Britain, and 
yesterday the money would 
have purchased foe intelli- 
gence that a production line in 
Shanghai is to export nearly 10 
million floppy discs to Eu- 
rope. foe United States and 
Hong Kong: that foe ancient 
Baohua magnolia species has 
been saved from extinction. 

Readers also learnt that 
Shanghai readers ru^ed a 


bookshop selling a 359,000- 
word tome. Such was tbe 
enthusiasm that nearly 500 
copies of foe book were sold 
within art hour. 

For the first time, a report 
on page three said, Peking 
authorities are inviting foreign 
visitors to send them com- 
plaints about tourist facilities. 
A British woman living in the 
Chinese capital who contrib- 
uted a feature on page six. 
appeared to have no com- 
plaints (“foe shops are full to 
overflowing with goods”}, al- 
though she admitted she finds 
cycling across main traffic 
junctions "puzzling” o 


A cartoon showed “Losing 
Enterprise” looking into an 
empty bowl marked “State 
Subsidy” which would go 
down well with Thatchente 
readers and a leader re- 
produced from Workers’ 
Daily recommended that 
small eating houses should 
have the right to set their own 
prices for snacks. 

China Daily also found 
room for statistics of French 
champagne sales, a London 
slock market report, sports 
coverage of English cricket 
and football and had just a 
couple of unimportant 
misprints. 


Militants’ 


flghtback 

blocked 


by Labour 


The Labour Party executive 
has thwarted plans by the 
constituency of Mr Derek 
Hatton, foe Militant, to cam- 
paign against party 
expulsions. 

The executive has sus- 
pended the ■ Broadgreen 
constituency in Liverpool for 
allowing foe City Council’s 
deputy leader into last 
month's annual meeting. 

Local Labour members are. 
denying the allegations, and 
say that both Mr Hatton and 
Mr Roger Bannister, foe left 
winger who was also expelled, 
both deliberately stayed away 
from the meeting. 

Tbe ruling, announced in a 
letter from Miss Joyce Gould, 
national organizer, means that 
foe constituency will not be 
able to serai a delegate to foe 
party conference in Blackpool 

But the constituency is 
refusing to be silenced and 
campaigning for the suspen- 
sion lobe lifted. 


Approval for 
nuclear haven 


The Government yesterday 
approved plans for Britain's 
biggest private nuclear shelter. 
Work on foe 1, 000-place shel- 
ter. which will have its own 
chapel, cinema, gymnasium 
and library, is expected to 
begin early next year. 

The developers say a lot of 
interest has been shown in foe 
£3,000-a-place bunker being 
built on a 1.3 acre site on foe 
outskirts of Peterborough, 
Cambridgeshire, which .will 
have enough provisions to 
keep foe occupants alive for 
six months. 


Concern over 
irradiation 


One in four women is con- 
cerned about foe potential 
health hazards of preserving 
food by irradiation, according 
to a survey by the Association 
of Market Survey 
Organisations. 

The survey, conducted on a 
sample of 932 housewives all 
over Britain, showed that 
nearly half those questioned, 
who knew what irradiation 
meant, strongly disagreed with 
the irradiation process' and 
nine out of ten said any food 
subjected to this process 
should be dearly labelled. 


Road deaths 
‘shameful’ 


Police yesterday described 
as “shameful” foe death and 
accident toll on Nottingham- 
shire roads last month when 
their anti-drink drive cam- 
paign was in operation. 

Thirteen people were killed, 
79 were seriously hurt and 3 36 
suffered lesser injuries. During 
foe offensive against drink 
and driving, which ended 
yesterday, 5,619 people were 
breath tested and 336 were 
positive.. 


Inquiry over 
injection error 


An inquiry has been 
launched at Solihull hospital 
in foe West Midlands to 
discover why a new-born boy 
was injected with a drug 
intended for his mother. 

Mr Khalid Parvez, of 
Yardtey, Birmingham, the 
boy's rather, said he had been 
told that foe injection should 
have been given to his wife to 
stop bleeding after a difficult 
birih. The child is now 
recovering.

Oxford. 

The company is asking for 
permission to develop a 75 - 
acre site, owned by Exeter 
College, Oxford, to the north 
of the city.

Breakfast in business style 


Committee urges 
law service reform 

By Frances Gibb, Legal Affairs Correspondent 

Proposals for reforming the 
legal profession, to make it 
more responsive to the 
public’s needs and demands , 
were called for yesterday by 
the new. joint committee on 
the profession's future, which 
has been set up by the Bar and 
the Law Society. . 

The commimee 'was an- 
nounced in April this year in 
an attempt to improve rela- 
tions between the. two 
branches .of. the profession. 

These were becoming increas- 
ingly acrimonious as a result 
of n 


moves from the solicitors’ 
branch to seek increased rights 
of audience in the ' higher 
courts. 

Under the chairmanship of 
Lady Mane, the new commit- 
tee is invitr 
the end of 
latest, on how the profession's 
services could be made more 
“readily available” to the 
public, and on any changes 
needed to education and train- 
ing and the profession’s 
structure. . 


It wQI concentrate its work 
Ul four main a reas- the ftfdv 
of the public and provision of] 
legal services; funding; educa- 
tion- and -training and . the 
structure and practices of the 
profession. 

The group looking at . die 
needs of the pubhe^nd legal 
services is to be chaired by 
Lady Elizabeth Cavendish, a 
lay representative on the Bar’s 
. disciplinary committee and a 
member of its professional 
conduct committee. 

- Meanwhile, reactions from 
the . profession to the 
controversial Law , Society 
committee paper. Lawyers 
find the Courts, are. being 
collated and will go before the 
next meeting of the society's 
by - litigation committee. From 
ober at the there a submission will go 
either to die society's council 
or to the joint committee on 
the legal profession. 


That paper suggests a com- 
mon education and 
for all lawyers and a m 
smaller specialist Bar. 


Laughter 
and wine 
for Lemer 

Friends said a rousing fare- 
well yesterday to Alan Jay 
Lerner with songs, jokes and a 
champagne party. 

They tuned a memorial 
service into a musical, and a 
friend told his widow after- 
wards; *Tt was the best show in 
town." 

The congregation was in St 
Paul’s Church, Covent Gar- 
den, London, to pay tribute to 
Lamer, composer of musical 
hits sneb as My Far Lady and 
Camctot. 

They sang some of the songs 
which made him rich and 
famous, fell about laughing as 
his friends told .Jo % and 

anecdotes and toasted him at a 

reception afterwards with the 
only drinks suitable for “the 
man who Invented 
champagne”. 

There was thunderous ap- 
plause wnd shoots Of“fe*r*rt> 
at the church service, and 
smiles and laughter. Leraer 
died of cancer in June- He 
would have hew 68 yesterday. 

Outside the church. Miss 
Lfa Robertson, aged 32, 
Lerner’s eighth wife, toughed 
when the service was de-

Conman 
fooled 
CIA men 

A ' confidence trickster 
fooled the CIA wife the story 
of a plot to assassinate an 
American diplomat’s son, 
coart heard yesterday. Adam 
Lnnardi told the US Embassy 
in London he conhl foil the 
alleged Libyan-backed attack. 
US agents were taken in and 
paid him£75to work for them. 

Mr Lnnardi, aged 23, 
Stunned a US investigator 
when he revealed the identity 
of his superior officer and the 
name of a dlptakafs son hi 
Brosadfe Ho also said he was 
a South African security agent 
who had fled foe country and^ 
that he was recruited by 
Libyan-backed Angolan death 
squad planning to assassinate 
an officer at the London 
embassy and the US 
tfodomafft soil b.Bdgjnm, 
Southwark Crown Court was 
told. - 

Mr LananH told the Amer- 
ican be decided to double 
cross .the execution squad 
because bedid not want to be 
implicated in a doable murder. 

Mr David Stanton, for the 
prosecution, said: “A number 
of names and facts he revealed 
were found to be. true a 
security staff at the embassy 
had to check them out He ms 
arrested a number of days 
latre when they became suspi- 
dons.” 

Lanardi admitted two 
charges of obtaining property 
by deception .totalling £75 
from US Embassy security 
agents in May this year. He 
was sentenced to 12 months 
imprisouaent on each charge, 
to run concurrently. Two sus- 
pended sentences totaUmg five 
months were also brought into 
force to ram consecativdy after 
Judge Kenneth Cooke said; 
“Yon are a very clever and 
particularly wicked man. 

Mr Wiliam EJBand, for foe 
defence, said: “My cheat is a 
man who lives in cloud cuckoo 
land and could seB the Tower 
Bridge fo an American tourist 
if he so wished. He is firing, in 
a fantasy world.” 

Lnnardi — who changed his 
name from Darien Hearson 
because he became too well 
known for his hoaxing; — had 
scut police ou an amazing wild 
goose chases. He had cl a ime d 
that an Assistant Chief Con- 
stable off Hampshire -was in- 
volved in running a dog 
fighting ring, that an Assistant 
Chief Commissioner of foe 
Metropolitan Police was re- 
ceiving payments from foe 
Mafia and that the IRA had a 
guns cache buried in a church 
hi Hampshire. 


Death van ‘mass of twisted metal’ 




A van packed with young

from a pop festival swerved 
oat of control and crossed a 
central crash barrier of the M4 
near Maidenhead, Berkshire, 

aftenbe driver suddenly came 

upon a motorcyclist m the 
darkness, an inquest was toM 
yesterday. Two other vehicles 
ploughed into it, leaving. 13 

people dead in one of Britain s 

wont motorway crashes. 

Mr Kenneth Skeates, a 
businessmffl whose car glanc- 
ed off the wreckage of the van, 
said: “I didn't nscognire rt asa 
van. It was a mass of jagged 
metal There was also a car m 

which various persons seemed 

to be dead.” w 

. The inquest, at Maiden- 
head, Berkshire, was told nope 

of the drivers killed in foe 
-Tragedy te»d significant levels - 


of alcohol or drugs in their 
bodies. Nine occupants of the 
van returning from the pop 
festival at Glastonbury, Som- 
erset, and four members of a 
family in one of the cars died 
m the accident. 

Mr Besten Wing, from Saf- 
fron Walden, Essex, said be 
was driving his motorcycle In 
convoy with two others # at 
about 50mph when foe in- 
cident happened flt about 
lam. He said the van came up, 
behind one of the omcr 
motorcyclists and was forced 

to brake. , „ 

“h was doing about 70 or 
75mph. If he hadn’t seen him, 
it would have hit him,” Mr 
Wing sakL “I think as soon as 

the van started skidding it was 

out of coinroL It was a sharp, 
uncontrolled swerve towards 
the barrier. It ploughed across 


foe reservation — it sort of 
lifted across the barrier.” - 

. The van came to rest in, the 
westbound carriageway and 
within seconds was hit by the

The Institute of Directors 
yesterday bunched a humani- 
tarian rescue facility for busi- 
ness wives afflicted by foe 
early-morning conjugal dis- 
tress of gr ama ; from fefeM a 

newspaper. 

The doors of its Pall Mall 
headquarters were opened at 
8am for foe service of bosiuess 
breakfasts, at which eu ptafaw 
of industry may spar over the 
kippers and Cumberland 

MBMp . 

It may have bees that the 
rattle of cutlery drowned out 
foe ring of foe striking of 
deals, ont little serious issi- 
ness appeared to be conducted 
on foe naipgml day. 

Indeed Most of foe 35 
customers, many of them 
women, at this latest attempt 


By Alan Hamilton 
to wake op British industry 
, were makeweights of institute 
staffl invited guests and 
reporters. 

Or it may have been the less 
than hrttanate atmosphere of 
the institute's dining room, 
faintly reminiscent of a su- 
perior provincial railway hotel 
except for foe stern portraits 
Of Lord Uaig miWI Captain 
Scott frowning from the walls. 

Business breakfasting is an 
American institution, bat over . 
there they tend to be wheeler- 
dealing over their waffles and 
grits by seven rather than 
eight. Clearly the British 
director needs a more gentle 
introduction to this inexorable 
extension to his working day. 

Mr John Nicholas, deputy 
director-general tit foe in- 


stitute and a simple toast-aad- 
coffee man on weekdays, mM 
however that the service was 
being offered in response to 
requests from many of his 
30,000 members. 

Working breakfasts, priced 
at £7.50, are expectei to be 
popular with directors who 
like to arrive in London before 
their competitors are fully 
awake and before all the 
puking places are takes. 

* But one of yesterday 
morning's breafcfasters, Mr 
tech Sframocki, who works for 
foe English arm of the Ameri- 
can Chase Manhattan Bank 
and is experienced in dawn 
dealing , advised caution. “It is 
a dangerous time, because the 
brain is not fully functioning.” 


! Headless 
body of 
woman is 
found 

By Michael HorsneQ 

Detectives hunting for foe 
missing London estate agent 
Miss Susan Laznplugb were 
alerted yesterday alter foe 
dismembered remains of a 
woman were found in two 
shallow graves in Sussex. 

But police believe the head- 
less body, which has so far 
defied identification, is un- 
likely to be that of missing 
woman from the clothing 
found on it 

Miss Lamplugh vanished in 
July after meeting a client 
calung himself Mr Kipper at a 
house in Shorrolds Road, 
Fulham. 

Scotland Yard was in- 
fanned of the find by Del 
Chief Supt John McConneD, 
head of Sussex CTD, who is 
leading the murder inquiry. 

The discovery was made by 
a motorist at a car park in 
Ashdown Forest between Nut- 
ley and Wych Cross. East 
Sussex. 

Dr Michael Heath, forensic 
pathologist from the London 
Hospital, has examined the 
remains which are thought to 
be those of a white woman 
aged between 20 and 40 years. 
Miss Lamplugh is 25. 

The remains were found in 
two packages wrapped in cur- 
tain material in shallow graves 
about five feet apart and 
covered with a thin layer of 
earth and bracken. 

One contained the torso, 
minus the arms and head. The 
legs had been severed at foe 
knee. The other held farther 
remains and nightclothes. 

Mr McConnell, who has set 
up an incident room at East 
Grinstead police station said: 
“The person who committed 
this offence went to great 
lengths to cover up identifica- 
tion. We haven't ruled out 
that it is the body of Miss 
Lamplugh but the indications 
from clothing are that is not 
her. We have no clues about 
who it might be.” 



Prize for

Bakombe, near Haywards 
Heath, Sussex, and Mr An- 
drew Cote, of Soufobowu,

British Association annual meeting 

Science teaching 
skills ‘lost 
for generations’ 

BjThoiiisQnFkCBticc^SckaeeCorre^oiideiit 


The leaching of science in 
schools has reached such a low 
level that there will be do 
recovery of high standards for 
generations, unless there is 
urgent government action. Sir 
George POiter, retiring presi- 
dent of the British Associatio n 
for the Advancement of Sci- 
ence. said last night. 

The general level of scien- 
tific understanding in Britain 
is “lamentably tow”, with 
many senior politicians, re- 
ligious leaders and controllers 
of the media scientifically 
uneducated, he said. 

“Good as our educational 
system is, it can be said in one 
way to be the worst in the 
world. Although it provides 
the finest education anywhere 
for the young man or woman 
who wants to be an academic 
scientist, it leaves the majority 
ignorant of the scientific world 
where they will five and 
work.” 

Sir George, speaking on the 
opening day of the 
association's annual meeting 
in Bristol, said it was the duty 
of scientists to “drag kicking 
and screaming into the twenty 
first century" those who have 
no taste for the subject. 

Science today was all perva- 
sive, influencing jobs and 
attitudes in health, energy, 
defence, education and the 
environment. The Govern- 
ment was right to emphasize 


the need for science to contrib- 
ute to the national prosperity. 

“More applied research, 
more engineers, more scien- 
tific entrepreneurs are ur- 
gently needed to provide the 
new industrial revolution 
which will put our country 
back into the first league. 

“But where some of our 
political leaders must be chal- 
lenged is when they seem to 
imply there is an alternative to 
basic science rather than com- 


their ways and concentrate 
their minds on short-term 
applications which will help 
us to *get rich quick'." be said. 

To feed applied science by 
starving basic science was like 
economizing on die founda- 
tions of a building so that it 
could be built higher. “It is 
only a matter of tune before 
the whole edifice crumbles,” 
he said. 

Industry needed baric sci- 
ence but would not fund it 
unless it saw some rather 
short-term payoff to its own 
company. The painful but 
inescapable conclusion was 
that the Government must 
provide the funding for basic 
rese a rc h . Sir George said. 

“It is essential to the 
prospe ri ty of the country and 
must be supported mainly by 
government Applied science 


and development is the prov- 
ince of industry who know ; 
best what they want and 
should be funded by them to a 
greater extent than at 
present" 

Science education was in 
crisis. Sir George said. “We 
can change a government in a 
few years, but to change the 
teaching in schools is a process 
which takes decades. 

“Of aD the many crises in 
education and science, per- 
haps the most serious is the 
disappearing species of me 
good teacher of physics, 
mathematics and to a lesser 
extent the other sciences. 

“If it is allowed to go much 
further, there will be no 
recovery for generations. 

“The so-called cultural 
revolution in China produced 
a lost generation, for which 
education almost ceased. 
Fortunately when it was over 
there were still grandfathers 
around to teach the children of 
the generation of lost fathers, 
but China is still struggling to 
recover from the disaster. 

“We are already relying on 
the 'grandfathers to leach 
science in many schools, and 
they have few grandchildren." 

The problem must be tack- 
led where it started, in the 
yi nitifip education of chil- 
dren of primary school age, Sir 
George said. 


Chernobyl toll in Britain 


By Pearce Wright, Science Editor 


Forty-five Britons will die 
of cancer and another 45 will 
develop non-malignant tu- 
mours of the thyroid because 


rag-term i 

Chernobyl nuclear plant ac- 
cident in the Soviet Union, 
the National Radiological 
Protection Board estimated 

Its report was presented by 
Dr Michael O'Riordan to a 
meeting of the British Associ- 
ation meeting. 

In addition, British students 
have been advised not to 
return to their studies in Kiev 
and Minsk this autumn, and 
from which .they were evac- 
uated al the time of the 
accident. 

The reasons were explained 
by Mr Norman Pearce, who 


said levels of radioactive 
contamination ita the environ- 
ment, and in foodstuffs in 
particular, had settled at about 
twice the international ac- 
cepted limit in areas near 
those towns. 

The advice was based on 
evidence from the Soviet 
Union of prevailing con- 
ditions at Osier, a small town 
60 km north of Kiev and 
60 km south-east of 
Chernobyl which was a ref- 
erence point for measuring the 
impact of the radioactive 
contamination in areas of 
European Russia. 

Mr Pearce, of Bristol 
University, said the judge- 
ment took into account diffi- 
culties over diet He suggested 


that a different assessment 
might have been made if it 
was possible for individual 
students to adopt a rigorous 
diet excluding local produce , 
like milk, yoghourt and fresh 
vegetables. 

Preliminary figures of the 
European Community, made 
for the European Commission 
by Mrs Jane SLmmonds, of the 
National Radiological Protec- 
tion Board, showed that the 
worst affected countries out- 
side the Soviet block were 
Greece, Italy and West 
Germany. 

The exposure to the popula- 
tion in Greece and Italy in 
particular was more than ten 
times higher than that in the 
worst parts of Britain. 


Case for Sizewell is ‘out of date’ 


Government arguments for 
building the Sizewell B 
nuclear reactor are out of date 
and cannot be supported by 
evidence, it was claimed 
yesterday. 

Friends of the Earth, the 
environmental pressure group 
which was one of the main 
objectors at the 340day public 
inquiry into the siting of the 
reactor on the Suffolk coast, 
made the claim in London. 

The group was joined by the 
Liberal MP, Mr Simon 
Hughes, and other members 
of Parliament. 

Mr Hughes said that since 


the Chernobyl disaster, safety 
had become an important 
issue. Yet only 32 of the 79 
safety requirements for the 
proposed plant in Suffolk, had 
been satisfied at the hearing. _ 

He said: “The outcome of 
this inquiry is a matter of 
major concern to everyone in 
Britain." 

The results of the inquiry 
are due at the end of the year. 

In a statement. Mr Stan 
Onne, Labour spokesman on 
the environment, said: “For 
the Government to consider 
commissioning this plant is an 
act of dangerous folly which 


will be resisted by the vast 
majority of the British people. 

“If the Government pro-; 
ceeds with the order • for 
Sizewefl, Labour will caned 
the contract." 

Mr lan Wriggles worth, SDP | 
spokesman on the environ- 1 
men I, said there was no 
evidence to justify the build- 
ing of tire pr es suriz ed water 
reamer. 

Friends of the Earth yes- 
terday launched its own report 
examining the inquiry. The 
group says that the Govern- 
ment has been over-oplimistic 
about its statistics on safety.

Councils 
move to 
stop toxic 
wastes 

Pressure from environ- 
mental groups has fed four 
East coast authorities to op- 
pose plans to unload 3400 
tons of toxic waste in Britain? 

Two Dutch dredgers seek- 
ing a British port for the waste 
would remain for weeks at the 
dockside if they entered any 
East coast porL 

After an initiative by Essex 
County Council neighbouring 
local authorities have agreed 
to adopt delaying tactics to 
keep the boats from unloading 
their cargo. 

The agreement is being seen 
as a victory for press u re 
groups such as Greenpeace 
and Friends of the Earth. 

“Their actions in drawing 
attention to this problem have 
exacerbated the situation over 
the last few months," the 
London Waste Regulation 
Authority said. 

The authority has joined 
Essex, Sussex and Kent 
county councils in agreeing 
that unloading of the waste, a 
slurry containing 2 per cent 
arsenic, would require a li- 
cence which would take at 
least two months to obtain 
and cause costly delays. ■ 

The two months would be 
spent in formal consultations ' 
involving district councils, 
water authorities, planners 
and the Health and Safety 
Executive. 

The Dutch water authorities 
spent three weeks and 
£700.000 salvaging the waste 
from the Danish coaster, Olat 
after it sank off the Dutch 
coast in July on its way to 
Britain from a chemical fac- 
tory in Denmark. They now 
want to see the waste on its 
way to Britain. 

But the dredgers are still in 
Rotterdam after the impasse 
created by Essex County 
CoundL 

Mr John Harrison, die 
County Consumer and Public 
Protection Officer, said: “If it 
is too bad for Denmark and so 
dangerous it has to be raised 
from the sea bed, it is a matter 
of grave concern. 

“If it has to go somewhere, 
why should it be this country? 
Essex feels it has been unfairly 
treated in the past for hazard- 
ous waste, and the members of 
the council ihink enough is 
enough-" 

He said that the council 
believed the slurry, which 
dries quickly and can turn into 
a dangerous dust, should be 
placed in secure containers by 
the Dutch authorities before it 
is shipped to Britain. , 

Protests by residents in 
Brightiingsea, Essex, led the 
owners of the private port to 
confirm that they would not 
handle the waste. 

Now pons all along the East 
coast have been told they may 
not handle it without a 
licence. 

The waste Is due to be made 
i safe at a reprocessing plant in 
I West Thurrock, Essex, owned 
i by Cory Waste Management, ! 
| a member of the Ocean Trans- 
port and Trading group which j 
was last week the subject of a 
£258 million takeover bid by 
Mr Ron Brieriey, a New 
Zealand businessman. 

Cory Waste Management 
said: “There are infinitely 
more dangerous materials 
than this offloaded at ports 
every day." 

But Fnends of the Earth 
said there was evidence that 
toxic waste was dangerous, 
particularly to the dock work- 
ers who would have to unload 
it, which was why other 
countries were anxious to 
send their waste to Britain. 

“Britain is being used as a 
dumping ground, lo 1985, we 
imported 25,000 tons of 
hazardous waste. 

“In the past, these ship- 
ments have been imported 
without too much attention 
being given to them, but 
possibly Essex County Coun- 
cil is being a lot more wary 
over this shipment because of 
the attention Friends of the- 
Earth and Greenpeace have 
given to this issue." 1

Man buys quarry to save his home 


A Devon b us in essman has 
paid £20,000 for a disused 
quarry ia an attempt to save 
bis home from fnilmg into it. 

Mr Tony Saye, aged 31, has 
started to fiD in the wurked- 
ont limestone quarry, near 
Barnstaple, north Devon, be- 
cause he fears his house wffi 
collapse from subsidence. 

He decided to bay the 
quarry wbea a neighbour's 
garden collapsed into it and 
experts said it was only a 
matter of time before his four- 
bedroom house and garden 


went the same way. 

The conservation scheme 
could earn Mr Saye a profit. 
He is cbtgitt briJders £15 a 
load to dump their rubbish and 
hopes eventually to get mU his 
money bade. 

The problems began 18 
months age when a next-door 
neigh bom's garden collapsed 
into the quarry after water had 
eroded the bank. 

Mr Saye, who runs a car 
accessory business, . said:

Blacks condemn 
Tory MP’s attack 


By Angella Johnson 


Members of Britain’s black 
business community have re- 
sponded angrily to a scathing 
attack on West Indian people 
as “bone idle, lazy, good-for- 
nothings” by Mr Terry Dicks, 
Conservative MP for Hayes 
and Harfington. 

Mr Dicks was defending Sir 
Woodrow Wyatt, the news- 
paper columnist, who was 
censured by the Press Council 
last weekend for claiming that 
a laige proportion of black 
immigrants were “lawless, 
drug-taking, violent and 
unemployable”. 

Mr Dicks’ outburst has 
prompted calls from other 
Conservatives for the party to 
dissociate itself from these 
views and has angered West 
Indian business people in 
Britain, who called his re- 
marks irresponsible and 
inflammatory. 


Mr Samm y Jay Holder, 
fchairman of the United King- 
dom Caribbean Chamber of 
Commerce, said: “We have 
over 400 members throughout 
the country, representing ev- 
ery aspect of business life . 

“The second and third 
generations of Mack British 
don’t want to sweat for tong 
hours in comer stores. Instead 
they have integrated in in- 
dustry and commerce. Many 
have struggled very hard to 
establish themselves in 
successful careen and' it is 
totally unworthy for Mr Dicks 
to label them in tins way.” 

Mr Bunny Barnett, editor of 
a new Mack busness maga- 
zine; Wealth, said Mr Dicks's 
statement would help to create 
racial tension on the streets 
and could dismantle the good 
work being done by police and 
community leaders,. 


Fresh call to outlaw 
ritual slaughtering 


The Government came un- 
der renewed pressure yes- 
terday to abolish ha la! and 
kosher slaughtering methods. 

The call from the pressure 
group, Compassion in World 
Farming, accused ritual 
sl a ught e r companies of taking 
advantage of their position to 
sell meal to non-religious 
markets. 

Mr Peter Roberts, the cam- 
paign director, said: “We have 
a duty to see that animals go to 
their deaths without pain and 
without fear." 

He called on the Govern- 
ment to implement the 173 . 
recommendations of the Farm 
Animal Welfare Council re- 


ports of 1982-85 which in- 
clude introducing stun -killing 
for poultry, high voltage kill- 
ing for pigs ana phased with- 
drawal -of religious 
exemptions. 

Mr Roberts claimed that 
some Muslim interests were 
using the regulations “to give 
them an advantage over the 
rest of the meal industry” 

He said a halal slaughter- 
house which was exporting to 
a large French supermarket 
company had admitted that it , 
did not stun sheep before 
killing them. This case had 
been referred by the campaign ! 
to the Director of Public , 
Prosecutions. 


quarry. I decided my bouse 
may eventually be at risk, my 
garden might collapse and the 
market value of the house and 
the three properties near by 
would go right down." 

Expats say the quarry will 
take about 400,000 tons of 
waste material before it is 
filled in. 

Mr Saye, wfao has lived in 
the house for three years, said: 
“I have got a five-year tipping 
licence and with a bit of lock I 
will get my money back and 
save die garden." 

Cash short 
for local 
roadworks 

Local roads in Britain are 
deteriorating quickly because 
after freeing local authorities 
to spend more, the Govern- 
ment is failing to provide the, 
necessary cash, it is claimed. ' 
Local authority highway j 
spending was raised — on 
paper — by 14 per cent in this 
year's public expenditure 
White Paper. 

The National Road Mainte- 
nance Condition Survey, pre- 
pared by experts from local 
authorities and central gov- 
ernment, has shown a deieri- 
orating trend in local roads. 

They were found lo be in a 
“significantly worse" state last 
year than the year before. 

But the rate support grant 
which provides local authori- 
ties with the funds for road 
maintenance was raised by 
only 3.5 per cent 
The improvement claimed 
by . ministers is not, in fact, 
taking place, according to an 
unpublished survey of county 
and metropolitan authorities 
carried out by the British 
Aggregate Construction 
Materials Industries. 

The survey shows that ac- 
tual spending on highway 
maintenance this year will be 
substantially down on the 
government expectations — 
under £600 million compared 
with more than £750 milion. 

“Local authorities are notin 
a position to spend enough to 
arrest the deterioration and 
keep local roads in a satisfac- 
tory condition," Mr David 
Smicker, transport chief of 
the Association of County 
Councils, said. “Saving money 
in this way is a false economy, 
because if deterioration ts 
allowed to continue and accel- 
erate. the eventual cost is 
much greater." 


Nato’s frigate strategy: 2 


Industry manoeuvring for work share 


While the navies and de- 
fence ministries of eight Nato 
nations are still trying to 
determine precisely what they 
want from the proposed stan- 
dard Nato frigate, industrial- 
ists are manouevring to ensure 
that their companies and their 
country get as much work as 
possible from the project, 
should the vessel eventually 
go into production. 

Although no country is 
committal to taking any of 
the Nato frigates, present in- 
dications are that there may be 
an initial programme of more 
than 50 vessels, with the 
United Slates having about a 
third. It looks as though Bri- 
tain could have the second 
largest involvement with per- 
haps eight ships, with the 
other nations taking as many 
as six each. 

There appears lo be at least 
an informal understanding 
that each country will build its 
own hulls. These, with the 
main propulsion units, ac- 
count for about 35 per cent of 
the cost This leaves work 
totalling 65 percent of the cost 
— accounted for by sensors, 
weapons systems and other 
equipment — to be provided 
on a collaborative basis, 


There are important industrial issues at stake in the 
Nato frigate project, including the development of 
advanced missile and radar systems. In the second of 
two articles. Rodney Corvtonf Defence Correspondent , 
looks at the position as Nato ministers ponder the 
problems. 


Each participating country 
will expect to proride equip- 
ment in proportion to the 
number of ships it agrees to 
take, but a high degree of spe- 
cialization is expected to deve- 
lop wjth individual countries 
or companies becoming the 
predominant supplier of parti- 
cular pieces of equipment 
This means there will be a lot 
of jockeying for position, with 
each country trying to ensure 
it is not shut out of lines of 
activity in which it is particu- 
larly interested. 

The project definition phase 
will be run by an international 
joint venture company based 
m Hamburg, and each country 
is expected to be represented 
on it by a single unit represent- 
ing its industrial interests. In 
the case of Britain. Supermar- 
me Consortium Ltd has been 
formed by 10 of the largest 
British defence contractors 
with particular involvement 


in naval systems. Supermar- 
ine is expected to represent 
Britain in Hamburg, but nego- 
tiations over this are still going 
on between the Ministry of 
Defence and Supermarine. 

From the British point of 
view a central issue which has 
to be settled is an arrangement 
to develop a new air defence 
system for the end of the cen- 
tury. It would have to be able 
to cope with supersonic sea- 
skimming missiles, and mis- 
siles which came down from 
altitude in a near-vertical 
trajectory, as well as other less 
demanding targets, h would 
have to have the accuracy and 
speed of operation of the 
current British Sea Woir mis- 
sile. but have considerably 
greater range. 

Nato has set up a committee 
to examine providing such a 
missile system, which is 
know, n as a Local Area Missile 


System (LAMS), as well as a 
multi-function radar. Britain 
has a particular interest in this 
requirement, because a num- 
ber of companies. led bv Brit- 
ish Aerospace, are working on 
a national missile programme, 
and Plesscy has developed 
new radar technologies, using 
galiura-arsenide. which could 
meet the needs of a multi- 
function radar. 

The development of a 
fullscale weapons system 
could cost hundreds of mil- 
lions of pounds, and it is 
thought there have been 
suggestions that an American 
system could be built under 
licence in Europe. The de- 
cision on how a LAMS 
weapon system should be pro- 
' ided is so important that Bri- 
uin is insisting on ns receiv- 
ing cluse attention in the next 
phase of work on the frigate 
programme. 

Complex collaborative pro- 
jects such as the Nato frigate 
are of undoubted benefit to 
the participating nations, bur 
tnere are always competing 
national interests which it is 
difficult to reconcile. That will 
be one oflhe main tasks in the ' 
next phase m the project 


Arsonist 
trapped by 
cameras, 
says QC 

By Craig Seton 

An arsonist who petrol- 
bombed a building during the 
Handswonh riot in Bir- 
mingham a year ago was 
identified because a photo- 
graph showing him commit- 
ting the crime appeared on the 
front pages of newspapers, it 
was alleged yesterday. 

Mr Igor Judge. QC. for the 

prosection, asked die jury at 

Birmingham Crown Court to 
deride whether the photo- 
graph was of James Hazel!, 
aged 30, of Merry Hill Drive, 
Winson Green. Birmingham, 
who has denied arson on 
September 10 when £20,000 
worth of damage was caused 
to a building contractor's shop . 
in Heathfield Road. 

Mr Judge alleged that Mr 
Hazdi now looked “a lot more 
scholarly and a teamed 
gentleman" because he had a 
beard and wore glasses that 
were not in evidence when he 
gave himself up to the police.' 

Mr Hazdi appeared with 
Aaron Palgrave, aged 21, of 
Church Vale, Handsworth. He 
is alleged to have supplied Mr 
Hazed with the petrol bomb. 
Mr Palgrave denied arson, 
possessing petrol bombs with 
intent to endanger life or 
Hamag g pro p erty and ma- 
liciously causing an explosion. 

Mr Judge told the jury that 
the worst rioting uared in 
Handsworth on September 9, 
but the next day trouble again 
erupted and m»lk bottles filled 
with petrol and ignited by 
burning rags were thrown at 
the police. 

One of those incidents 
stood out for the unusual 
reason that whereas normally 
it was difficult .in the confu- 
sion to identify precisely who 
threw petrol bombs, on this 
occasion “one of the criminals 
was actually photographed 
committing the crime." 

- He said large numbers of 
press photographers were in 
the area, which was being 
visited that day by Mr Doug- 
las Hurd, the Home Secretary. 

Mr Judge said one photo- 
graph showed a man. wearing 
white shoes, with a flaming 
petrol bomb in his right hand. 
Another picture showed the 
act of throwing. 

After the publicity in news- 
papers and on television, Mr 
Judge said. “Mr Hazel/ 
presumably identified himself 
, because he just disappeared." 

But during a search of his 
house a pair of white boots 
was found. Mr Hazel! gave 
himself up to the police on 
September 16, but denied he 
had been at the scene. 

Mr Judge said other press 
photographs of the incident 
were choked- One, taken by 
Mr John Voos of The Times, 
showed the consequences of 
the petrol bomb allegedly 
thrown by Mr Hazdi into a 
building contractor’s shop. 

Mr Judge told the jury. 
“The prosecution say you will 
have no doubt about the guilt 
of these two men.” 

The trial continues today 

Court rejects 
plea to lift 
Botham ‘gag 9 

An attempt to lift the “gag" 
on Ian Botham before the 
winter Test tour of Australia 
failed in the High Court 
yesterday. 

The Test and County 
Cricket Board has asked 35 
possible tourists, including 
Botham, to sign tetters that 
they would abide by media 
restrictions before they are 
considered for selection. 

But News Group News- 
papers, publishers of The Sun. 
for which Botham writes a 
column, sought an injunction 
restraining the board from 
inducing him to break his 
contract. Mr Justice Turner 
refused to grant the order. 

Mr Henry Douglas, for The 
Sun, said outside court: “lan 
Botham is in an extraor- 
dinarilyawkward position. He 
is keen to go on the Australian 
tour, but he could find himself 
in breach of his contract with 
us if he goes under the terms 
presently required by the 
board. We are considering an 
appeal." 

15. months for 
indecency 
towards girl, 8 

Tracey Ann Parkes. aged 18, 
was sentenced to 15 months' 
youth custody at Wolver- 
hampton Crown Court yester- 
day after pleading guilty to 
aiding and abetting indecency 
towards a girt aged eight 
Mr Roger Smith, for the 
prosetution. said Parkes was a 
prostitute. Her friend, another 
prostitute aged 16 at the time, 
was the sister of the girt of 
eight. In January of this year, 
tne child was with Parkes, who 
was picked up by a man. A fee 
was negotiated and she got 
into the car accompanied by 
the child. When the customer 
asked if the child would 
participate in sexual activity 
Parkes persuaded her to agree. 
-The child then bared the 
'‘fcpper pan of her body while 
tne man engaged in sexual 
activity.

F ailure to discipline 
electricians over 
Wapping is censured 

Reports by Alan Wood, John Winder, Nicholas Wood, Nicholas Beeston 

Anthony Hodges and Tim Jones. 


The TUC censured by a 
large majority yesterday its 
General Council's failure to 
take action to discipline the 
electricians’ union EETFU 
oyer the printing dispute at 
Wapping with News 

International. 

The congress carried the 
motion of censure after Mr 
Norman Willis, TUC General 
Secretary, had urged that it 
should be rejected. 

The motion criticizing the 
General Council was moved 
by the National Graphical 
Association, seconded by 
Sogat ’82, supported by the 
National Union of Journal- 
ists. a nd opposed by the 
EETPU and the Amal gamated 
Engineering Union. It was 
carried, amid loud applause, 
by 5, 823,000 votes to 

3.132.000, a majority of 

2.691.000. 

Mr Willis, sensing that his 
request would fall on deaf 
ears, declared that efforts to 
resolve the dispute would 
continue intensively. What- 
ever the outcome, the job of 
the TUC would be to pick up 
the pieces and go on working 
for that settlement. 

The commitment of himself 
and his colleagues remained 
and their instruction to unions 
remained. What also re- 
mained was to get the maxi- 
mum justice for the people 
who should be in Wapping. 

Mr Tony Dubbins, National 
Graphical Association, mov- 
ing the motion, said that it was 
impossible to have unity built 
on the ashes of 5,500 sacked 
printing workers. 

The motion also called on 
the General Council to enlist 
the involvement of all affili- 
ated unions in stepping up 
demonstrations of support fra* 
trade union rights at Wapping, 
east London, and Kinning 
Park. Glasgow. 

It sought an intensification 
of the boycott campaign 
against The Sun, News of the 


^ortd. The Times and The 
Sunday Times. 

It confirmed that the dis- 
pute must be settled by nego- 
tiation on the; of 

achieving trade onion 
recognition. The motion con- 
cluded: “We are concerned 
that an honourable settlement 
is found for all concerned 
including ourselves and would 
make it clear that EETPU 
members will support their 
union in actions to secure such 
a settlement." 

Mr Dubbins said that Mr 
Murdoch bad used every per- 
verse weapon in his armoury 
to break the dispute and to 
persuade members to fade 
away into the night- Their 
message to Mr Murdoch had 
been made dear in two secret 
ballots. 

The fundamental right of 
trade unionists to have 
indentation and the dignity 


members to stop doing the job 
of printers at Wapping. 

The NGA w as not 

that the EETPU be 

just that hs members acted as 
good trade unionists. 

Miss Brenda Dean, General 
Secretary of the Society of 
Graphical and Allied Trades 
'82. said she spoke on behalf of 
the majority of 3,500 workers 
locked out of Wapping and 
Kinning Park, Glasgow after 
they had refused to enter a 
Dutch auction to see which 
union could offer the worst 
conditions for their members, 
and Mr Murdoch had been 
ably aided and abetted by the 
EETPU. 

“What happened to our 
members must never be al- 
lowed to happen again.” . 

They had tried for months 
before the dispute and before 
balloting their members on 
strike action, to get a united 


representation and the dignity strike action, to get a united 
ofajob was at issue. The strike approach. The EETPU bad 
had been engineered by Mr not wanted to know. 

“Not to mince words, with- 
out the EETPU, Wapping 
could not have happened. 

The plants at Wapping and 
in Glasgow could not have 
become operatio nal without 
the local EETPU officials in 
Glasgow and Southampton 
being willing to act seoetly, 
covertly in a kind of CIA 
operation. 

News International had 
conspired against their own 
employees and could not be- 
lieve their luck when a TUC 
affiliate helped them in their 
disgraceful plans. 

There was nothing grey 
about the dispute. It was stark, 
brutal and bitter. 

“These people in Wapping 
and Kinning Park stole our 
members' jobs," she said. 

'It could not be dismissed as 
just another Fleet Street dis- 
pute between so-called greedy 
folk squabbling over the 
trough. 

Many of her members there 
had been low-paid workers 


Murdoch to finance his opera- 
tions in the United States. An 
essential link in that process 
had been the recruitment of 
staff a t Wapping for which 
EETPU had been responsible. 

It had been suggested by 
those who ought to know 
better that the motion ought 
to be withdrawn in the in- 
terests of unity. The NGA had 
given support every time it 
had been asked for. 

It was not in the interests of 
unity to undermine fellow 
trade unionists by accepting a 
no-strike, legally binding 
agreement irrespective cu 
what it meant to other unions. 

So for the General Council 
had given on ly a sla p on the 
wrist to the EETPU but in 
foiling to instruct the union to 
stop its members working at 
Wapping it had hidden behind 
the skirts of Conservative 
legislation. The resolution 
would mean that if the present 
negotiations foiled, the Gen- 
eral Counc il should instruct 
the EETPU to . instruct its 



Miss Brenda Dean, general secretary of Sogat, talking to the press outside the conference centre in Brighton yesterday. 


who had lost their livelihoods. 

The council bad said that 
action had been contrary to 
the declared principles ofCoo- 
gres s and t hen simply directed 
the EETPU to inform mem- 
bers that they were doing 
Sogat' s members’ jobs. If they 
did not stand together what 
was the TUC for? 

The electricians, had been 
caught with their fingers in the 
till of Sogat members’ jobs. 

Passing the motion would 
say that the movement re* 
jected what had happened and 
might help to protect others in 
future. 

Mr Harry Comoy, General 
Secretary of the National 
Union of Journalists, said that 
they still had members inside 
Wapping but more than. 150 
had left the four titles. Many 


had obeyed NUJ instructions 
not to work there and had 
been sacked. Others had 
found better jobs because they 
could not few: going through 
the picket lines. 

Many were there because 
the plant was ready and the 
editors had been able to go to 
union chapels . (office 
branches) at The Times, Sun- 
day Times, Sun and News of 
the World and say “Go to 
Waging or else. If you don't, 
you will be sacked." 

Those same editors lectured 
people about a free press. 
They should look at them- 
selves in a minor. It would' 
shatter. 

They would continue to try 
to get their members out, but 
they had received a threat of 
an injunction. One member 


working in Wapping had got 
solid tors to write telling the 
NUJ that unless they desisted 
from disciplining him, he 
would ask for an injunction to 
stop them. 

He urged support of the 
motion. 

Mr Jack Whyman of the 
Amalgamated Engineering 
Union said that 200 of his 
members had been sacked. 

All the unions involved had 
asked Eric Hammond to use 
his best endeavours to get 
talks restarted. That had lento 
the current round of talks. 

“My worry is that what is 
said and the decisions taken 
here will not open up the 
possibilities of settlement, but 
close them down." 

Mr Eric Hammond. Gen- 
eral Secretary of the Electrical, 
Electronic and Plumbing 


Union (EETPU) said that his 
union refused to accept 
responsibility for the plight of 
former NI 

employees-Responsibility for 
that was with the bad judge- 
ment of the print unions. 

It had been said that there 
was a plot by Murdoch to 
create a situation whereby his 
workers would be provoked to 
strike action, and that Mur- 
doch then claimed justifica- 
tion for the sacking. 

“Perhaps there was a plot, 
but we had no part of il" 

He believed that the rules of 
the TUC. providing they were 
used within the laws of soci- 
ety, must be the instrument to 
settle di fferenc es. 

The EETPU would con- 
tinue to do all it could to 
secure an honourable settle- 
ment of the dispute. 


Challenge 
to minister 
on jobs 

The Government’s ap- 
proach to the jobs market is to 
be challenged at a meeting 
with Lord Young of 
Grafiham. Secretary of State 
for Employment, after 
Congress. 

Mr Roy Grantham, of 
Apex, chairman of (he 
Employment Policy and 
Organization Committee, 
said: "We reject the" 
Government’s dogmatic; 
assertion that unregulated free ' 
markets create more jobs. Just 
look at the unemployment 
figures." 

The Genera] Council had 
campaigned actively against 1 
the Government's deregula- 
tion measures, particularly the- 
mean-minded Wages An and 
the attacks on the most * 
vulnerable employees in the 
recent White Paper. 

Mr Grantham, was speak-'' 
ing on the committee's report. 
People at Work: New Rights. 
AW- Responsibilities, pre- 
pared jointly with the Labour' 
Party, which he said was 
designed to produce a fair, 
effenive and forward-looking 
framework of industrial rela- 
tions law under a future 
Labour Government. 


Gold awards ; 
for service 

Gold badges of Congress for 
service to trade unionism were 
awarded to Mr Edward Horse- 
man. Transport and General 
Workers Union, and Miss 
Dorothy Hadley, National 
League of the Blind and 
Disabled. 

The Congress award for 
youth was presented to Mr 
Michael Davies, National 
Union of Mineworkers. 


Agenda today 

Mr NeD Kinnock, Leader of 
the Opposition, will address 
Congress this afternoon. 

Other business includes 
GCHQ. the Manpower Ser- 
vices Commission; the penal 
system; pensions and social 
security; homelessness; and 
heal A and safety at work. The 
resalts of elections to the 
General Council are expected 
to be announced.

Willis swings congress 
behind strike ballots 


Continued from page 1 

where they had no rights or 
protection. 

The challenge to the trade 
union movement was' to ap- 
peal to and protect a new 
servant class “treated frankly 
with about as much consid- 
eration as a scullery maid in 
Victorian Britain". 

Some; he said, worked in 
the fast-food chains where the 
staff were as disposable as the 
plastic amtainersTlhrowaway 
people in a throwaway 
economy." 

With trade union member- 
ship now below 50 per cent of 
the national workforce, it was 
significant that none of the 
traditional union barons, with 
a power base in heavily union- 
ized factories, opposed the 
new line on ballots, which is a 
central part of Mr Kinnock’s 
strategy to restore his party's 
credibility. 

Mr Ron Todd, general sec- 
retary of the TGWU, en- 


dorsed ‘ the strategy 
reluctantly, saying that he 
would rather swallow .hard on 
Labour's industrial relations 
law than “choke on Thatcher’s 
hostile legislation". 

Left-wing opposition to the 
motion was reduced to a 
rump. Ms- Barbara Switzer, 
deputy general secretary of 
TASS won little support for 
her claim that rank and file 
demands for ballots amounted 
to no more than a “media 
fiction". 

She was supported by Mr 
Alan Sapper, general secretary 
of the Association of 
Cinematograph, Television 
and Allied Technicians, who 
said: “We reject the propo- 
sition that the state should 
determine union laws. It di- 
vides the strength and unity of 
the movement.” 

Delegates backed the plat- 
form resolution overwhelm- 
ingly without a card vote, by 
perhaps six or seven million to 
two million. 


NGA motion carried 
after stormy debate 


Continued from page 1 
union: “We cannot allow 
unity to be built on the ashes 
of the jobs of 5,500 sacked 
primworfcers." 

Mr Willis was unable to 
persuade delegates that the 
union chiefs had done all they 
could to bring the electricians 
tohceL 

He said that the matter 
should be put to one side while 
efforts were under way to find 
an honourable settlement. 

Mr Eric Hammond, the 
EETPU general secretary, who 
earlier in the day had run the 
gauntlet of a noisy demonstra- 
tion outside Uie conference 
centre by around 1,000 print- 
ers and their supporters, re- 
jected claims that his union 
had collaborated with News 
International over the move 
to Wapping. 

He said that he refused to 
accept responsibility for the 
plight of former News Inter- 
national employees, claiming 
they had been the victims of 
bad judgment on the part of 
their union leaders. 

Mr Hammond accused 
Sogat '82 of having conspired 
to pul his members Out of 
Fleet Street in the past: "To 
portray the print unions as 
unblemished virgins lakes 
Fleet Street distortions to a 
new IcveL” 


Mr Dubbins alleged the 
printworkers' strike, which 
presaged the move to 
Wapping. had been en- 
gineered by Mr Rupert Mur- 
doch. head of News 
International to finance his 
operations in the United 
States. 

He claimed that the elec- 
tricians. through officials at 
their Southampton and Glas- 
gow offices, had acted as a 
recruitment agency to take 
over his members' jobs. 

Mr Dubbins accused the 
General Council of giving the 
electricians a slap on the wrist, 
then hiding behind the skirts 
of the Government’s trade 
union legislation. 

Miss Brenda Dean, general 
secretary of Sogat '82, accused 
the electricians of stealing the 
jobs of her members. 

“News International con- 
spired against their own 
employees and could not be- 
lieve their luck when a TUC 
affiliate helped them in their 
plans." 

Mr Willis said that the 
disciplinary procedures had 
been property conducted and 
that EETPU could not be tned 
twice for the same offence- 

In the first card vote of the 
conference, delegates voted by 
5.823.000 to 3. 1 22,000 to back 
the NGA resolution.

‘Strike ballot here to stay’ Law should side with Ballots 


vrihs cheers for Willis 


The TUC General Council 
and Mr Norman Willis se- 
cured a clear and important 
victory with an overwhelming 
vote in favour of the joint 
TUC-Labour Party document 
on trade union organization 
and industrial relations. 

A similar vote was cast to 
carry the composite motion 
moved by the General. 
Municipal. Boilermakers and 
Allied Trades Union 
(GMBATU). which called for 
abolition of the present 
Government’s anti-trade 
union legislation and called 
for a Labour Government to 
introduce a new legal frame- 
work to strengthen workers’ 
rights, including the right to 
strike and providing for bal- 
lots in such situations. 

Ely a somewhat narrower 
majority. Congress rejected a 
motion by the Technical 
Administrative and Super- 
visory Staff Union (TASS) 
opposing interference by any 
outside body in unions* in- 
ternal democratic procedure 
by outside bodies and reject- 
ing intervention by the state 
and the courts. 

Mr Norman Willis, General 
Secretary of the TUC was 
greeted with cheers when be 
told delegates that balloting of 
union members before strikes 
was here to stay because union 
members favoured it. 


He was moving a joint 
TUC-Labour Party liaison 
committee report People at 
work: new rights, new 
responsibilities, and called for 
support for a motion to be 
moved by GMBATU. which 
called, among other things, for 
a right to strike and a right to 
have a secret ballot in such 
situations. 

He said that they had 
laboured long and hard to 
produce the joint statement 
and at the end of the process 
he did not believe they should 
run any risk of being accused 
of facing both ways. 

It was a blueprint for the 
new Britain, a charter for the 
casualties of the past, cheated 
over the past seven years. 

The document offered full 
citizenship rights to millions 
of people, above all to the 
unemployed. 

Mr Willis promised greater 
job security to the under- 
privileged; better protections 
against unfair dismissal; equal 
opportunities for women and 
Mack workers; a healthier and 
safer workplace and more say 
in how their companies were 
run. The trade union Acts of 
1980. 1982 and 1984 would be 
repealed. 

He called on them to vote 
for the composite motion by 
GMBATU and to reject a 
TASS motion opposing any 


interference in unions* in- 
ternal democratic procedure 
by outside bodies. 

The TASS motion was out- 
dated and “over the top". 

The joint proposals meant 
scrapping the balloting mea- 
sures in the 1984 Act and 
underpinning membership 
participation in unions by a 
new framework of rights. 

“We want ballots, with 
proper facilities, polling sta- 
tions at the workplace, meet- 
ings in working time." he said. 

Genera] principles would be 
based on a right for union 
members to have a secret 
ballot on decisions relating to 
strikes, and for the method of 
election of union executives to 
be based on a system of secret 
ballots, but there would be no 
imposition of rigid proce- 
dures, he said. 

Employers would be 
stopped from seeking injunc- 
tions and damages. 

Unions would be expected 
to guarantee such rights to 
their members willingly but 
any complaints by members 
would be dealt with by a new 
tribunal. 

It was not a cynical pre- 
election deaL Balloting was 
there to stay because members 
favoured it. 

The Government’s unfair 
and damaging measures must 
be swept away. 


underdog, union says issue 

‘fudged’ 


Moving the composite mo- 
tion on mdnstrial relations 
law, Mr John Edmonds, gen- 
eral secretary of GMBATU, 
called on the movement to 
come to die rescue of the 
“throwaway people in a throw- 
away economy". 

He said that they were 
seeing the growth of a new 
servant class, treated with as 
much consideration as the 
scullery maids of Victorian 
England. 

He was ashamed that a 
British Prime Minister should 
have so degraded the working 
people of Britain and, to 
applause, added: “Sometimes 
I am a little ashamed that we 
have done so little to stop her". 

The law should prevent 
exploitation and be on the side 
of the underdog. The law 
should not be on the side of 
Murdoch and MacGregor; it 
should be on the side of die 
kitchen porter, chambermaid 
and hairdresser «nd all the 
poor so-and-sos who nude the 
millions and not the lucky few 
who spent them. 

Seconding, Mr Alan Tnffin, 
general secretary of the Union 
of Communications Workers, 
said that the new legislation 
that was needed was all aboot 
indhridnal workers' rights on 
employment, the right to 
strike without risk of 
dismissaL 


There most be no more 
Wappings. No more mast they 
have employers with advan- 
tages in the courts. That 
advantage mnst be provided 
for men and women at work. 

Union members needed a 
legal framework judges would 
find impossible to reinterpret 
and governments to repeaL 
Miss Barbara Switzer, deputy 
general secretary of TASS, 
moving her muon’s motion 
opposing outside interference 
with muon procedures, said 
that the suggestion that mu- 
lions of trade unionists wanted 
statutory ballots was a media 
fiction. The GMBATU motion 
did not offer the riqght to a 
ballot before a major multi- 
national dosed a plant and 
threw thousands out of work. 

Mr Alan Sapper, general 
secretary of Association of 
Cinematograph. Television 
and Allied Technicians 
(ACTT% seconding, said the 
motion asked the general 
council to consult with the 
Labour Party on non-Jegal 
guidelines to extend demo- 
cratic procedures of affiliated 
anions. That non-legislative 
approach strengthened trade 
union procedures. 

“We reject the proposition 
that the state should deter- 
mine unioa rales. It divides the 
strength and unity of the 
movement" he said. 


Mr Kenneth Clarke, the 
Paymaster General and Min- 
ister for Employment, last 
night accused the trade union 
movement of fudging the 
issue of secret strike ballots. 

He saidrThe majority were 
apparently in favour of bal- 
lots. but want to do away with 
the law that made them 
effective." 

Mr Clarke, who attended 
Congress as an observer, 
heard delegates endorse a joint 
TUC-Labour Parry document 
pledging a new order to re- 
place the Government's 
employment legislation. How- 
ever. secret ballots would 
remain on matters “relating" 
to strikes, but there would be 
no rigid imposition of proce- 
dures for holding them. 

He said: “1 think that is a 
very dangerous decision for 
them. They all agree they want 
to repeal every piece of legisla- 
tion since 1979. but were very 
vague indeed about what they 
wanted to replace it with." 

The Government's legisla- 
tion had proved very popular 
with rank-and-file members 
outside the conference hall but 
it was unclear how the TUC 
proposed to allow individual 
members to challenge the 
decisions of their unions. Mr 
Clarke said. 


Policy partnership with Labour vital 


The Labour Party was given 
a wanting yesterday not to 
expect bund loyalty from the 
unions If It forms the next 
government. 

Mr Kenneth GDI, in his 
presidential address, said: 
“Unify does not consist in 
rubber-stamping every pro- 
posal presented by Labour 
leaders. We have to insist that 
the next government cham- 
pions the interests of working 
people as Mrs, Thatcher 
served her supporters, the 
super-rich." 

it was a dear message to Mr 
Kinnock, who will address 
delegates today, that if be 
wants a united front with the 
unions in the nm-np to the 
next election he must give 
than a central place in policy- 
making. 

Mr GDI said that, in the 
Sixties and Seventies, Labour 
and the onions did not get the 
relationship right They must 
get it right this time. 

In partnership with a 
reforming, radical govern- 
ment, the trade union move- 
ment could give that 
government the strength it 
needed to. cany out its tasks. 

They had to insist that the 
next Government championed 
the interests of working people 
as effectively as Mrs Thatcher 
bad served foe supporters that 
put her where she was: the 
super-rich. 

Mr GOL, who was expelled 
tills year from the Communist 



sJSgf 

Mr Kenneth Gill delivering 
his presidential address 
party, said^We do not want a 
Government that takes the 
easy way out or imposes wage 
restraint or which imposes 
restraint on union rules a»d 
procedures. We do not want 
the social ware restrained. We 
do not want British interests 
restrained in the interests of 
the multinationals- Recent his- 
tory shows that tills road leads 
to electorial defeat and 
disOfoston," he said. 

“The next Government, a 
Labour Government, must 
remember that their task Is to 
promote die Interests of the 
vast majority of the British 
people. The trade anion move- 


ment could not necessarily 
guarantee that every member 
accepted the political prior- 
ities of parliamentary 
judgmeots."He added that 
those who made a profession 
out of denigrating trade union- 
ism should remem ber that 
powerful trade unionism had 
always coincided with prosper- 
ity and vice versa. 

“We are here to make a 
better life. British trade union- 
ism has been here as 
capitalism - and will be 
after capitalism." 

Mr GUI opened his remarks 
by saying that fear was bade 
as a major soda! and political 
force. Mass unemployment, 
the fear of the sack dominated 
the national consciousness. 
The balance of power had been 
shifted significantly towards 
the employer, the declared 
objective of the Government 

Feeling was flowing against 
a Gallons Government that ent 
taxes for the greedy and cut 
jobs for die needy, a Govern- 
ment that sold industries and 
services to their rich friends at 
bargain prices. 

Tie Government had been 
nunbledJVfr GfD said. A short 
while ago, the Tories had been 
pursuing their interests un- 
impeded, confident and stri- 
dent, a sort of “mad Alice in 
plimdertand". 

“Now they stumble from 
one crisis to another, from 
eyror to danger, banana skin 
to costard pie, with Thatcher a 


shrill Alice in Bhinderland 
still shrieking that she is 
snccessfnL" 

The country needed a Gov- 
ernment that would get the 
people back to work, tackle 
mass poverty and restore Brit- 
ish industry. 

Taming to international is- 
sues, Mr Gill said that 
Chernobyl dramatized the 
dangers of nuclear war. If one 
malfunctioning dvil power sta- 
tion could create such fear- 
some hazards, what would the 
smallest nuclear war do to this 
planet?All nuclear weapon 
tests should end and Star 
Wars should be abandoned as 
it extended the arms race 
massively Jn Sooth Africa, 
apartheid was crumbling. Brit- 
ain must disengage from rac- 
ism and oppression. If the 
Government continued to prop 
up apartheid, thousands of 
jobs would be lost. 

Mr Gin said, referring to 
the Wapping dispute, that Mr 
Rupert Murdoch had tried, 
with the aid of biased laws, to 
destroy mint trade unio nism 
and 6,000 jobs in the process. 
He had done one favour. He 
had, by blatant use of all the 
anti-onion legislation, exposed 
their brutal, unjust nature. 
Even the British judiciary 
were almost embarrassed and 
that really was some achieve- 
ment. No law designed hy the 
Tories to immobilize unions 
should be used within the 
movement 


Vote condemns police 
use of plastic bullets 


The General Council was 
instructed to campaign vig- 
orously against the deploy- 
ment by police in the United 
Kingdom of plastic bullets, 
water cannon and disabling 
gas. 

A motion to the effect was 
carried by Congress with only 
the delegation of the Elec- 
trical. Electronic, Tele- 
communication and 

Plumbing Union (EETPU) 
voting against. Its general 
secretary. Mr Eric Hammond, 
was heckled from the public 
gallery when he spoke, 
interruptions that brought a 
rebuke from Mr Kenneth GOL 
the TUC president. 

The motion, moved by Mr 
Clive Brooke, of the Inland 
Revenue Staff Federation, 
noted with dismay the stated 
intention of .the Commis- 
sioner of the Metropolitan 
Police, in the wake of the 
Public Order Bill to deploy 
such weapons in dealing with 
incidents of civil unrest, and 
the statement that these weap- 
ons ted been supplied to all 
police forces. 

Congress was particularly 
concerned at the intended use 
of baton rounds in view of the 
number of deaths and serious 
injuries caused by these weap- 
ons in Northern Ireland in 
recent years. > 

Mr Brooke said that inno- 


cent people had been killed by 
plastic bullets, and inner city 
riots had been sparked off by 
such occurrences. The police 
must make determined efforts 
to win back public support in 
those areas where it ted been 
lost. 

Mr Jolui Randall, of the 
Civil Service Union, said that 
violence bred violence. Any 
upward spiral of violence 
would lead to oppression and 
the curtailment of the right of 
peaceful demonstration. 

That was the road down 
which they would go if they 
were prepared to stand idly by 
and see the introduction of 
these weapons and the ever- 
increasing armoury of weap- 
ons available to the police. 

Mr Hammond said that 
some police were bastards and 
some were heroes. Some were 
heroes at one time and bas- 
tards at another. But the 
overwhelming majority de- 
served the union movement's 
help and support. 

They ted responsibility not 
only to deal with erring police 
but to back the 99.9 per cent 
who did a wonderful job. “I 
am grateful to the police." he 
added, “for without their help 
1 would not be able to speak to 
you today." (laughter). 

The police were often the 
thin blue line between free* 
dom and anarchy.

IT. 


It seems that many people 
are reassured by the sight 
of our name on the engine 
casing. 

It isn’t entirely rational. 

All engines supplied for 
airliners are reliable. 

But somehow the Rolls- 
Royce tradition of care and 
craftsmanship has built an 
image in people’s minds. 

A feeling of unsurpassed 
excellence has surrounded 
our name since we started 
making aero -engines for the 
Bristol Fighter in 1916. 

The Rolls-Royce Merlin 
engine made the Spitfire an outstanding 

fighter in the Second World War. 

And today over half of the aero- 
engines we make are for military aircraft. 

More than 110 of the world’s fighting 

forces use our engines. 

The vertical take-off Harrier uses the 
Pegasus, the only engine of its type in service. 

Our civil aero-engines provide the 
power for aircraft operated by over 270 
airlines worldwide. 

These include Concorde, with its Anglo- 
French Olympus engines, and Boeing’s 747 
Jumbo Jet and the new 757 which shuttles 
back and forth day in day out between 
London and Edinburgh and Glasgow. 



We also make a fair number of engines 

that never get airborne. 

Nearly a tenth of our sales consist 
of gas turbine products for electricity gener- 
ating stations, ships and pumping stations 
such as those on Siberian and trans-Alaskan 
pipelines. 

Last year our products generated record 
total sales of £1.6 billion which yielded pre 
tax profits of £81 million. 

So next time you fasten your seat belt 

and glance out of the window | ROLLS 
and see our name you’ll know 
why you feel so reassured. 

In the meantime, here’s a 
reminder of what to look for.

At least 18 people were 
injured yesterday in a bomb 
blast at a supermarket in a 
white suburb of Eta* 30 * JJ 
area which has become the 
country's main target tor waac 

— nationalist attacks. 

The store, in a shopping 
complex at Monclair, about 
eight miles from the city, was 
crowded with lunchtime cus- 
tomers. Two of the injured, a 
girl aged three and a woman 

aged 2 a were seriously hurt .

party of one of our guides. 
Looking back, it was a dassic 
gambit To refuse would have 
seemed chmilsh. To . accept 
meant straying into the un- 
known. Few journalists would 
resist, and nor did L 

The party, as it tamed out; 
was held in an Uzbek tea- 
house on the outskirts of 
Tashkent We arrived in a 
battered old bus. Vodka was 
pressed on as, and I drank a 
little, but my wife a bsta i ned . 
No food was offered. 

Finally we moved outdoors 
to a barbecue. Ow classes 
disappeared to be replaced by 
fresh ones. The next thing I 
recall is lying in a courtyard 
vomiting into a bathtub. 

Later I learnt what followed. 
"Guests” at the Internist party 
began molesting Jean. She 
resisted for all she was worth. 
Eventually the bus took ns 
both back to the hotel. 

Here dm front door was 
barred pad police, who ap- 
peared mysteriously from no^ 
where, tried to arrest me. 
Again Jean made a fins and 
some visiting American doc- 
tors staying** the hotel inter- 
vened and forced open the 
door. 

After that, a lengthy at- 
tempt began in the manager's 
office to get me to write a 
“confession". 

Two years earlier, in 1977, 
Robert Toth, a Los Artgdes 

Tuner journalist, had signed a 

statement after a KGB inter- 


rogation which was used later 

Evento my ^foddled^ite, 
sluing any document seemed 
a mistake. 

In the end, after two days 
confined to our hotel room, we 
were allowed to contact the 
American Embassy m Mos- 
cow. Soon afte rwa r d s we flew 
back to the Soviet capitaL 

Diplomatic protests and 
worldwide publicity followed. 
For two months Intourist 
threatened to sue for slander, 
and the Soviet press thundered 
its denunriatxms. But I am 
gii» to say that Jean and I left 
Moscow unscathed, and as 
phmtwt, three months later. 

Inevitably one looks back 
and reflects after such an 
mddent — as, doubtless, Nk£ 
Daniloff now is doings •• 

Malcolm Toon, then US 
Ambassador to the Soviet 
Union, told me I should hare 
tested the vodka with a silver 
spoon: if the drink was 
dragged the spoon would have 
turned bbefc. 

Perhaps we should not have 
travelled so for from Moscow 
alone. Maybe we should not 
have accepted that invitation. 

The sdMonbting might 
have gone on for yean were it 
not for Izresda. Two months 
after the Tashkent affair it

. Walters in Madrid 

Spain briefed on 
terrorism links 

From A Correspondent, Madrid 


President Reagan's special 
envoy, Mr Vernon Walters, 
said after meeting Sedor Fran- 
cisco Fernindez Ordonez, the 
Spanish Foreign Minister, in 
Madrid yesterday that be had 
“discussed many matters of 
common interest with Spain, 
including the struggle against 
terrorism throughout the 
world". 

On the first stage of Ins 
European tour to co-ordinate 
new Western initiatives 
against Libya, including the 
imposition of economic sanc- 
tions, Mr Walters added: “It 
was a useful and friendly 
exchange." 

However, he emphasized 
that he had made no specific 
demands on Spain. 

Mr Walters, who arrived at 
the Torrqdn air base on 
Sunday, was accompanied by 
Mr Robert Oakley, Under- 
secretary of State in the US 
Government for matters relat- 
ing to terrorism, .and Mr 
Howard Teicher, a member of 
the US National Security 
Council

Envoy turns to Belgium 

From Jonathan Braude, Brussels 


Mr Vernon Walters, Presi-

arrives in Brussels today to

and the Nato allies to take new 

sanctions against Libya.

nation European tour, wm

eign Minister, before going on 
to meet the Italian Deputy 
Secretary-General of Nato,

Tfte American envoy is 
believed to be carrying new 
evidence of a planned Libyan 
terror campaign in the hope of 
getting European govern- 
ments to increase economic 
pressure on Colonel Gadam, 
the Libyan leader 
The reaction of the Nato 


allies to Mr Walters's mission 
is likely to be scepticaL 

European members win be 
reluctant to reduce trade con- 
tacts with Libya. -They are also 
keenly aware that European 
security could be threatened if 
Colonel Gadaffi reacts with 
more than words to hints of a 
new American raid. 

A government spokesman 
stressed that Belgium main-

Los Angeles 

The gruesome search for 
bodies resumed yesterday in 
the pleasant, middle-class sub- 
urb of Cerritos, where a sunny 
Sunday afternoon was turned' 
into what one eye- witness 
described as “a neigh- 
bourhood holocaust" after the 
mid-air collision between an 
airliner and a small private 
aircraft.- 

The DC 9 ariiner was about 
to land at Los Angeles airport 
when it collided with a single 
engine Piper Tomahawk, 
which had just taken off 

“It looked like a missile had 
scored a direct hit," one of the 
scores of rescue workers said. 
They have begun the grim task 
of sifting through the burnt- 
out rubble of some 17 homes 
in search of survivors, 

The death toll now stands at 
67, but it could go as high as 
77. All passengers and crew on 
board Aero Mexico flight 498 
from Guadalajara and the 
occupants of the small plane 
died in the collision which 
occurred at 6,000 ft. Five 
residents were believed to 
have been killed in their 
homes by falling debris. But 
there axe many residents still 
unaccounted for. 

Federal Aviation Admin- 
istration investigators comb- 
ing the devastated area have 
found a flight recorder. But 
their task has been node 
tougher by ghoulish souvenir 
hunters. Two arrests have 
been made for looting and 
taking fragments of the 
aircraft. 

“Bits of jet are aD over the 
place,” a member of the FAA 
team said. "It’s like trying to

The remains of some 17 
houses were still smouldering 
yesterday. Burnt-out cars ana

— that the small plane, which 
was en route from nearby

climbing when it struck the 
airliner behind the wing area

Staffing alarm over US air safety 


From Christopher Thomas 
Washington 

The air disaster near Los 
Angeles airport has rekindled 
intense controversy about the 
safety of America’s airways. 
Although the cause has not 
been established, attention has 
once more focused on the 
understaffed air traffic control 
system. 

Critics say the system has 
never fully recovered from 
President Reagan's dismissal 
of 1 1,000 striking controllers 
in 1 98 1 . -Ttetospehsion two 
wedb ago of 34 controllers at 


controllers at 


the Palmdale control centre to 
the east of Los Angeles be- 
cause of possible drug use has 
added to the sense of tiarm. 

There has been a sharp 
increase of air traffic in recent 
years at key airports, Los 
Angeles among them. That is 
partly the result of deregula- 
tion of the airline industry in 
the early 1980s, which led to a 
proliferation of new, small 
airlines concentrating on the 
main centres. 

Last year five accidents in 
the US involving large airlines 
killed 521 people, accounting 


for more than a quarter of 
known worldwide air fatal- 
ities. The latest accident was 
the first major US airline 

disaster this year. 

• UK safeguard: Air traffic 
control in Britain makes a 
collision between airliners and 
light aircraft far less likely 
than in the US Michael Baity, 
Transport Editor, writes). 

The key difference is that 
light aircraft are not allowed to 
fly in the “air motorways” or 
controlled air space used by 
airliners in Britain, except 
under air traffic control. 


Mugabe in 
call for 
action on 
apartheid 

From A Correspondent 
Harare 

The incoming chairman of 
the Non-Aligned Movement, 
Mr Robert Mugabe, opened 
its eighth summit here yes- 
terday with calls for positive 
action on South Africa, 
disarmament, and the estab- 
lishment of a new world 
economic order. 

Mr Mugabe, the Zim- 
babwean Prime Minister, who 
took over from the Indian 
Prime Minister, Mr Rajiv 
Gandhi, said international 
mandatory sanctions were 
now the only peaceful means 
left to the international 
community to eradicate apart- 
heid within South Africa itself; 
to apply pressure for the 
independence of Namibia, 
and to restrain President 
Botha’s Government from its 
policy of “state terrorism" 
against its black neighbours. 

In a 35-minute address to 
representatives of 101 Third 
World countries, Mr Mugabe 
called for the dispatch of a 
team of foreign ministers from 
the Non-Aligned Movement 
to canvass support for sanc- 
tions, naming Britain, the US, 
West Germany and Japan as 
nations of particular im- 
portance in applying pressure 
to South Africa. 

He urged members of the 
Non-Aligned Movement to 
apply their own voluntary 
programme of sanctions until 
a mandatory resolution was 
adopted fay the United 
Nations. 

Mr Mugabe, whose own 
accession to power in 1980 
came after eight years of 
bloodshed in the Rhodesian 
bush war. called for greater 
material aid to South African 
liberation movements, includ- 
ing Swapo, the African Na- 
tional Congress and the Pan 
Africanist Congress. 

Stringent security precau- 
tions were enforced for the 
meeting, attended by leaders 
of all three movements and 
the chairman of the Palestine 
Liberation Organization, Mr 
Yassir Arafat. 

- Other conflicts became the 
focus of delegates as Mr Arafat 
made an impassioned appeal 
for an end to the war between 
Iran and Iraq“Let us put all 
our guns against Pretoria and 
against Tel Aviv in order to 
liberate our brothers and sis- 
ters from colonialism and im- 
perialism.” he said.

of the meeting at the Spanish 
Foreign Mini story, during 
which the Spanish authorities 
were reported to have been 
given US intelligence in- 
formation on Libyan and 
Syrian involvement in 
terrorism. 

As a fresh reprisal, following 
its raid against Tripoli in 
April, the Reagan Administra- 
tion now wants its Nato allies 
to bade economic sanctions 
against Libya. These would 
include a boycott on Libyan 
oil purchases. 

However, Spain, which op- 
posed the US raid on Libya m 
April, is sot is favour of 
sanctions either. It imports 8.7 
per cent of its oil from Libya, 
and, while prepared to reduce 
its supplies, it is not willing to 
stop them altogether, officials 
have said. 

They have also said in 
recent weeks that they are not 
prepared to let the US nse the 
joint military air bases in 
Spain in case of a fresh raid 
against Libya. Despite this, 
the US stepped up its mifitaiy 
presence near Spain's south- 
ern port of Cadiz last week 
with the arrival of six US 
Navy vessels.

High-ranking border 
guard makes his 
escape from the East 


A senior officer of the East 
German border guards fled 
across the border into West 
Germany, it was announced 
here yesterday, bringing to 
three the number of escapes 
from East Germany at the 
weekend. 

The escapes came after the 
highly publicized Sight last 
week of an East Berlin build- 
ing worker, who reached West 
Berlin by crashing a lorry 
through the Checkpoint Char- 
lie crossing at the Berlin Wall, 
accompanied by his woman 
companion and their daughter 
aged eight months. 

Those in Bonn who study 
escapes from East Germany 
say that such spectacular 
examples tend to encourage 
others to try to get out 

While it would have been 
impossible for East Germans 
(o learn of the Berlin incident 
from their own newspapers or 
television, most of them re- 
ceive West German or Aus- 
trian television and would 
have been even more in- 
terested in the stoiy than the 
outside world. 


From Frank JohHson, Bonn 

The East Germans with the 
best chance of escaping are the 
border guards, despite many 
efforts over the years to force 
them to stop each other from 
getting away. 

The officer who fled on! 
Sunday was a lieutenant-colo- 
nel, aged 37, in the Third 
Battalion of the 24th Border 
Regiment, an unusually high 
rank for a defector. 

He got across the heavily 
fortified border more than 100 
miles west of Berlin. It was 
said here that he escaped “in 
the area of Uelsen”, a Lower 
Saxony town about 40 miles 
from the border with East 
Germany. 

It is West German practice 
not to reveal a more precise 
location of an escape because 
it may alert the East Germans 
to a vulnerable point in the 
fortifications. 

The officer was wearing 
uniform but was unarmed. He 
was co-operating in question- 
ing yesterday at intelligence

Thailand 

minister 

resigns 

Bangkok (AP) - The Dep- 
uty Interior Minister, Mr 
Veera Musikapong, resigned 
yestCTday after charges that he 
had insulted the monarchy. 

Mr Musikapong told report- 
ers he remained loyal to the 
king but decided to resign 
because opposition parties 
had seized on the issue to 
attack the three-week-old 
Government of the Prime 
Minister. Mr Prem Tin- 
sulanonda. 

Opposition parties have de- 
manded Mr Musika pong’s 
resignation and criticized the 
Prime Minister for allegedly 
shielding him. They will meet 
today to decide whether to 
submit a no-confidence mo- 
tion against either Mr 
Musikapong or the Prime 
Minister. 

"I have considered this 
issue and decided to resign,*' 
Mr Musikapong told reporters 
at Government House, where 
he said he had just informed 
the Prime Minister of bis 
decision. 

Mr Musikapong was for- 
mally charged with two counts 
of tese-majeste. which could 
mean a 1 5-year prison term in 
Thailand. 

He was accused of making 
the allegedly offensive re- 
marks in a July 13 campaign 
speech in Buriram province. 


Iran launches new 
Gulf war offensive 


Bahrain (Reuter) - Iran 
launched a new Gulf war 
offensive yesterday to try to 
capture strategic mountain 
peaks on the northern front, 
but Iraq said the assault had 
been checked 

The Iranian news agency 
Ima said the overnight attack, 
code-named Karbala 2, was in 
the nigged Haj Omran region, 
240 miles north of Baghdad. 

It said Iranian forces were 
advancing and that hundreds 
of Iraqis had been killed, 
wounded or taken prisoner. 

In Baghdad a military 
spokesman, quoted by the 
official Iraqi news agency Ina. 
said Iraqi troops had checked 
an Iranian offensive involving 
three divisions. 

Iranian leaders have repeat- 
edly threatened a decisive 
offensive to end the six-year- 
old war and Mr Mir-Hossein 
Mousavi, the Iranian Prime 
Minister, said last week such 
an attack was “not far off". 

The Iraqi spokesman said 
the Iranians opened their as- 
sault one hour after midnight, 
and were trying to recapture 
Mount Kardamend, a peak 
taken by Iraq after heavy 
fighting in May. Iran had 
occupied it three years eartier. 

He said the Iraqi Fifth 
Army Corps had managed to 
"destroy the attacking forces", 
capturing a number of Iranian 


troops. His remarks indicated 
that fighting continues. 

Kardamend, in a predomi- 
nantly Kurdish area, over- 
looks the Haj Omran border 
valley and the peak of 
Gardako. 

Yesterday's fighting ap- 
peared to be the biggest flare- 
up on Gulf war ground fronts 
since the Karbala I offensive 
in early July when Iran re- 
gained its south-central border 
town of Me h ran after a six- 
week Iraqi occupation. 

The intervening period has 
seen an upsurge in attacks by 
Iran and Iraq on economic 
and' industrial targets. 

Iraq struck at Iranian oil 
exports Iasi month with anair 
strike on the makeshift Sirri 
Island oil terminal and both 
sides have increased raids on 
Gulf shipping - fuelling con- 
cern among Gulf Arab states 
that they might be dragged 
into the conflict. 

As the war enters its seventh 
year this month, Iraq has 
repeated proposals for peace, 
but Iran said it will pursue the 
struggle until the present Iraqi 
leadership is overthrown. 

The Gulf conflict issue was 
raised at the Non-Aligned 
Movement summit, opening 
in Harare yesterday, and Mr 
Robert Mugabe, Zimbabwe's 
Prime Minister, has pledged 
fresh mediation efforts. 


Lack of aid 
liaison hits 
Cameroon 
operation 

From Gavin Bell 
Bameada, 
Cameroon 

The Cameroon disaster has 
provided a classic demonstra- 
tion of poorly co-ordinated 
generosity swamping a relief 
operation with excessive and 

often inappropriate supplies. 

Emergency distrifwtion ce- 
ntres in the north-west are 

overflowing with five times the 

quantity of tents, blankets, 
food and drugs required to care 
for 3,000 survivors of the 
volcanic gas explosion on Au- 
gust 21. 

The operation went awry 
from the start because of a 
gross over-estimation of the 
population in distress. 

On August 25, the United 
Nations Disaster Relief Or- 
ganization (Undro) reported a 
fairly accurate death toll of 
1,000, but said there were 

10.000 people in the stricken 
area. The following day it said 

20.000 people had been 
affected. 

It was only on August 28, 
one week after the explosion, 
that it modified this figure to a 
more realistic 5,000 and said 
basic supplies that had arrived 
were ea route and covered 
present needs. 

Red Cross and others in 
Bamenda, the provincial cap- 
ital now estimate the total of 
displaced persons at no more 
than 3,000. 

Mr Robert Hogarth, the 
British Vice-Consul in Don- 
ala, said that anyone familiar 
wish the area would have 
known that the early estimate 
of 20,000 was utterly impos- 
sible. "There has never been 
that density of people in the 
region." 

He ascribed the error to 
rumours perpetuated by "the 
cocktail-swigging, jamboree 
set," who rarely travelled out- 
side die capital Yaounde 

Mr Chris Daniell an Inter- 
national Red Cross adviser, 
said it was always difficult to 
compile accurate statistics 
quickly in remote regions, bat 
be found it hard to explain how 
the UN agency had arrived at 
the estimate. 

The initial error was then 
compounded by an evident 
lack of international co-opera- 
tion, leading to duplication of 
relief supplies from donor 
countries and non-govern- 
mental organizations. 



President Paul Biya of Cameroon and 
President Richard von Weizsacker of 
West Germany in Bonn yesterday after 
the arrival of the leader of the former 
German colony for a four-day visit 
expected to focus on West German 
"Co-ordination has always established by 


investment and on help for victims of 
the gas disaster (AFP reports). 

Mr Biya's decision to go ahead with 
his visit despite the catastrophe is seen 
as demonstrating the importance he 
attaches to economic ties with Bonn, 
the affected 


been a problem," Mr Daniell 
admitted. "That’s why Undro 
was set Dp in 1974, bnt it 
hasn't worked so far. 

"They really need to have 
experienced evaluators who 
would be sent quickly to a 
disaster area, instead of rely- 
ing on load UN repre- 
sentatives who may have no 
experience of relief oper- 
ations." 

Mr Daniell suggested a 
three-phase plan for averting 
chaos: 

O Evaluators dispatched im- 
mediately to scene; an em- 
bargo imposed on relief 
supplies on til requirements 
are known. 

• Evaluators work in con- 
junction with a national co- 
ordination committee 


country. 

• Appeals for aid transmitted 
through Undro for specific 
funds and material goods; 
nothing that is not on these 
lists allowed into the country. 

In addition, he said, drags 
should be restricted to those 
on a list of 227 fonmdations 
compiled by the World Health 
Organization. 

A delegate of the West 
German Red Cross, Herr Gtm- 
ther Sieberfz, noted that any 
delay In sending supplies 
could prolong suffering. 

Mr Daniell however, said 
he did not consider this likely, 
since in. most situations, 
medicaments for treating bro- 
ken bones and life-threatening 
injuries were available locally. 

Disaster relief was further 


complicated by (he question- 
able motives of some donors. 
While the vast majority of aid 
stemmed from genuine com- 
passion, some of it was a case 
of disposing of unwanted sur- 
pluses that were of no use to 
the victims. 

A consolation from the lat- 
est mismanagement is that Mr 
Daniell is advising the Cam- 
eroon authorities on stockpil- 
ing surplus Supplies to enable 
the National Red Cross Sod- 
Ay to respond quickly to any 
future catastrophe. 

Meanwhile, the first phase 
of the relief operation here has 
been completed. Tents are 
being airlifted to provide tem- 
porary shelter for displaced 
famili es who we re given refuge 
by neighbouring tribes in the 
aftermath of the explosion. 


Japan union chief murdered 

Mr Masaaki Maeda, regional 


Tokyo (Reuter) — Gangs 
armed with metal pipes bat- 
tered to death a top railway 
union official and badly 
wounded eight others in a 
series of attacks at their homes 
early yesterday. 

Police said they suspected 
the extreme-left Chukaku 
(Central Core) group of killing 


head of the Shinkokuro union 
in Japanese National Rail- 
ways, and of wounding three 
other officials and their wives, 
and two other women. 

Mr Maeda was killed in 
Osaka. The chief of. the 
union's Tokyo chapter was 
among those attacked. 


Aids protest at Milan prison 


Rome — Inmates at Milan's 
San Vittore prison are 
demanding better safeguards 
10 block the spread of Aids 
among their numbers (Peter 
Nichols writes). About 1,200 
have been refusing food and 
food parcels for four days. 

They claim that about one- 
third of the prison population 


in Milan is addicted to drags 
and that Aids is passed on by 
unhygienic syringes. 

Only one doctor is available 
for the 450 drug addicts, they 
say. 

Their hunger strike is one of 
a series of protests which 
began last week in two 1 
prisons. ; 



‘French Army is proud of yon’ 

Chirac tribute to saboteurs 


Papeete (Reuter) — M Jac- 
ques Chirac, the French Prime 
Minister, said yesterday that 
the French Army had every 
reason to be proud of the two 
officers involved in the sink- 
ing of the Greenpeace ship 
Rainbow Warrior. 

However, he ruled out a 
visit to the two French secret 
service agents. Major Alain 
Mafart and Captain Domi- 
nique Prieur, who have been 
transferred to the South Pa- 
cific atoll of Hao from a New 
Zealand prison. 

"We are. talking about two 
officers of whom the French 
.Army has every reason to be 
proud,” be said on French 
radio here. 

When asked if he had a 
message for them, he replied: 
"1 have no special message 
except to pass on a message of 
consideration and friendship, 
and above all confirming my 


joy to know they are today free 
on the Republic's territory.". 

The two were sentenced to 
10 years' imprisonment in 
New Zealand for their part in 
the attack on the anti-nuclear 
protest ship harbour last year. 

Health offkals searching for 
rhinoceros coconut palm bee- 
tles delayed M Chirac's press 
conference for Vh hoars (Ren- 
ter reports from Papeete). 
They insisted on fumigating 
his entourage and a boot 20 
journalises: the beetle is a 
major threat in Wallis and 
Futuna, his previous stop. 


They were released m July 
and sent to the French base at 
Hao as part of a settlement 
worked out with New Zealand 
Seflor Javier PSrez de 
liieUar. the United Nations 


& 


Secretary-General, under 
which France agreed to apolo- 
gize and pay SNZ 7 million 
(£2.3 million) compensation. 

M Chirac was being inter- 
viewed from Papeete after a 
visit to the South Pacific 
territories of New Caledonia 
and Wallis and Futuna.He 
said later that the two agents 
were in Hao for a regular 
three-year military posting. 

"They are under no con- 
straints. All they have been 
asked to do is not meet 
journalists for a while.” 

M Chirac described his visit 
to New Caledonia as positive. 
He said that it was unthink- 
able in a democracy that some 
citizens should vote and oth- 
ers should not, referring to the 
demands of the indigenous 
Kanaks that settlers should be 
excluded from voting in an 
independence referendum. 


Tamils 9 skipper faces legal battle 


From Frank Johnson 
Bonn 

Herr Wolfgang Bindel, the 
West German freighter caj>- 
tain who allegedly cast adrift 
more than 150 Tamils in two 
lifeboats off Canada last 
month, looks like being the 
subject of a legal dispute as to 
which country should lake 
action against him. 

Hamburg police said he had 
charged the Tamils a total of 
DM700,000 (£230,000) to 
smuggle them into Canada on 
the Aurigae. 

In an interview with West 
German radio. Herr Bindel 
denied having had Tamils on 


board, but in a later radio- 
telephone interview with a 
Canadian newspaper appear- 
ed to admit it 

1 1 emerged that at 
the time the Aurigae was 
sailing under the Honduran 
flag and registration. When 
the homeward-bound ship pot 
hi for repairs at Las Palmas, in 
the Canaries, the Honduran 
Government prevailed on the 
Spanish port authorities not to 
allow it to leave. 

Honduras said that by aban- 
doning the Tamils Herr 
Bindel had committed an 
-offence. 


At the weekend Herr Bindel 
arranged with the West Ger- 
man Consul in Las Palmas to 
change back to the West 
German flag. 

The assumption here is this 
was agreed because West Ger- 
many wants him back home 
so that he can face charges. 

But yesterday the West 
German news agency DPA 
reported the Honduran Am- 
bassador in Madrid as saying 
the change to a West German 
flag made no difference, and 
that Honduras was still! 
requesting Spain not to lei the 
ship leave.

Afghan rebels attack 
Russian Kabul bases 


Islamabad (AP) — Muslim 
guerrillas attacked Soviet mili- 
tary installations in Kabul 
with rockets at the weekend, 
and up to 100 people died in 
last week's explosion at an 
ammunition depot in the Af- 
ghan capital, diplomatic 
sources said yesterday. 

They said that the rebels 
fired rockets at an anti-aircraft 
missile radar station in the 
Kohe Chebel Gazi Hills, at a 
Soviet military base at Khair, 
and at the Soviet Embassy and 
military headquarters in the 
Darulaman area. 

The sources did not know if 


the attacks caused casualties 
or damage, or how many 
rockets were used. Soviet and 
Afghan military units defend- 
ing Kabul responded by blast- 
ing surrounding hills with 
rockets and artillery fire. 

The sources said that new 
repeats from Kabul indicated 
that between SO and 100 
people were killed last week in 
the explosion that destroyed 
the ammuni tion depot of the 
Afghan Army's 9th Division. 

Earlier, Western diplomatic 
reports had put the number of 
dead from the explosion at no 
more than 40.

Peking worried by delay on N-plant contract 


Peking (Reuter) — High- 
ranking Chinese officials told 
Hong Kong's Governor. Sir 
Edward Youde, yesterday Pe- 
king was concerned that the 
date for signing contracts for a 
nuclear power plant near the 
colony was not -fixed, dip- 
lomatic sources said. 

Last month Peking was 


presented with a petition with 
signatures from a million 
Hong Kong people opposing 
the plant, to be built at Daya 
Bay 30 miles north of the 
colony. 

Sir Edward briefed China's 
Deputy Foreign Minister, Mr 
Zhou Nan, on the sentiments 
of Hong Kong people towards 


the proposed nuclear plant. 

“The Chinese side stated 
their concern that the date for 
signing the plant's contracts 
had not been settled,” the 
sources said. 

Businessmen involved in 
the negotiations said the con- 
tracts should be signed in the 
middle of this month. 


“It is just a question of days. 
There are no major problems 
for the contracts or the 
financing,” one businessman 
said. 

Western diplomats in Pe- 
king said they did not expect 
China to postpone or cancel 
the plant because of the oppo- 
sition in Hong Kong. 


Rebellion 
charges 
dropped 
by Aquino 

From Keith Dalton 
Manila 

The Aquino Government 
yesterday dropped rebellion . 
charges against an ally of the 
ousted President Marcos and . 
six other leaders of » fn3*“ ■ 
revolt two months ago, after 
they pledged loyalty to the 
phiGppine Republic. 

“It is hoped the Filipino 
people will hearken to Presi- 
dent Aquino's appeal to put 
ttilc matter behind us and 
work for peace and unity,” the 
justice Minister. Mr Neptall 
Gonzales, said. 

The former Foreign Min- 
ister, Mr Arturo Tokntino, 
•nJ six of his political allies 
submitted sworn statements 
which “acknowledge the 
existence” of the Aquino Gov- 
ernment and “forswear the use 
of force and violence” to 

overthrow it. 

The pledge was a com- 
promise solution under which 
the rebel leaders carefully

Behind these rather hysteri-

among some senior Koreans 
that the Americans are busy 
rewriting the Pacific trading

South Korean Government to 
revalue the won^beawse their

Thus it was no accident that 
yesterday's protests were so 
widespread. 

After tiie placards and street 
campaigning by local tobacco 
producers — “Love Korean 
products”; “Let’s achieve a 
self-reliant economy by using 
domestically made cigarettes’’, 
and the more succinct “Why 
should we smoke foreign 
cigarettes?” — there was no 
rash to the 500 shops which 
began stocking 11 brands of 
foreign, mainly British and 
American, cigarettes. 

But then there was never

With the avenge Korean

there is Utile scope in the 
family budget for a fancy 
foreign smoke. 

Ami just in case too many 
people are tempted, the Gov-

wanting, in Korean: “Exces-

THE TIMES TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 2 1986 


SPECTRUM 



Patronizing, out of touch, and yet. . . 


• The 6.2 million Britons aged 18 to 
25 constitute 15 per cent of the elec- 
torate. They have reached voting age 
since 1979. when Mrs Thatcher came 
to Downing Street, and they have 
the electoral power to decide whether 
she stays there for a third term. Yet, 
as yesterday's first part of the 
Tumss/MORI poll showed, two 
thirds of them are politically apathetic, 
to the extent that they may not even 
'vote next tune. 

• Today we identify some of the 
•causes of this apathy. The poll shows 
that a high percentage of these 
young people only feel strongly about 
the part)' leaders on negative mat- 
ters. Sixty percent, for example, think 
Mrs Thatcher talks down to people, 
and there is a marked personal aver- 
sion to the Prime Minister in other 
areas. (She at least attracts strong 
opinions — the highest ‘'rating” for 
any of the other leaders was the 36 per 


cent who thought Neil Kinnock 
“down to earth”.) 

• WhOe MORI (Market & Opinion 
Research International) was conduct- 
ing the poll, discussion groups met 

in three Tory marginal seats: Bath, 
Elmet (a Leeds suburb) and Notting- 
ham North — all constituencies that 
would be among the first to go in a 
general election that unseated Mrs 
Thatcher. Again, the words backed 
up the figures with strongly- 
expressed views about the Prime 
Minister, less so the other party 
leaders. 

• This antipathy, and the big La- 
bour lead among those who say they 
wfli vote, is not necessarily good 
news for Mr Kinnock, whom only 9 per 
cent thought would be “good in a 
crisis against 32 per cent for Mrs 
Thatcher. He needs half of the 6.2 
milli on young votes; on the basis of this 
poll, he can counton only one-sixth. 


Grimmfe/GeoflreySlrra 


T wo feelings emerge 
as by for the most 
strongly held 
throughout the 
77 /hcs/MQRI sur- 
vey of the attitudes of 
“Thatcher's children” For 
different reasons both will be 
. of interest to the Conservative 
party. 

Yesterday we revealed the 
willingness of an overwhelm- 
ing majority of these young 
adults (76 percent) to move to 
another area to get a job if they 
were unemployed. 

The other key point is their 
aversion to Margaret Thatcher 
herself Their response to a 
series of statements about the 
party leaders (see chart) tells 
its own story. The highest 
rating for any political leader 
against any attribute is the 61 
per cent who think that the 
Prime Minister is out of touch 
with young people. 

It is closely followed by 60 
per cent who think that 
Thatcher talks down to peo- 
ple. and 56 per cent who feel 
she is out of touch with 
ordinary people. Not far be- 
hind are 45 per cent who feel 
that she is narrow-minded. 

The intensity of these feel- 
ings towards Thatcher can be 
inferred from the fact that the 
highest rating any of the other 
three political leaders receives 
on any image attribute is the 
36 per cent who think Mr 
Kinnock down to earth. Most 
strikingly, whereas only 5 per 
cent have no opinion on Mrs 
Thatcher, the other party lead- 
ers drew blanks at the rate 15 
per cent (Kinnock). 36 per 
cent (Steel) and 42 per cent 
(Dr Owen). 

Two conclusions can be 
drawn: with the young people 
who have come of age since 
she came to power. Thatcher 
has the most unfavourable 
image: she also has the stron- 
gest image. 

This double vision of the 
Prime Minister was clearly 
reflected in the discussion 
groups and it was fascinating 
to watch how the same people 
might take her universally- 
perceived main attribute — 
strength - favourably or 
unfavourably, depending on 
the way or the circumstances 
in which the strength was seen 
to be exercised. 

There are ambivalent feel- 
ings in many of “Thatcher's 
children" about the woman 
who has so dominated their 
adult political lives. Strong 
personal dislike is sometimes 
mixed with reluctant 
admiration. 

Talking intensively to these 
young people, the impression 
at the end was of a perverse 
fascination with someone who 
was fell to be alien and 
unsympathetic, the mes- 
merized quality of the rabbit 
watching the stoat.

electorate towards the mine 
Minister, and the one her 
manner arouses is by for the 
most common. The Thatcher 
lone is felt to be haughty, 
hectoring or both, and it gives 
rise to an infuriated irritation 
even among her potential 
supporters. 

Listen to 18 year-old Helen 
Prichard from Bath, a girl just 
going back to school to retake 
A levels. She comes from an 
expensive residential part of 
the city, displays typical Tory 
attitudes on a number of 
issues, and asserts that she is 
not going to vote for Kinnock 
"just because he seems a nice 
bloke”. 

She adds:"! don't like her 
because of . . . the women she 
is. the way she comes over to 
me. She’s in power, there's 
nobody near her. she’s the 
bcsL She doesn't ever seem to 


H elen Prichard 
says: “Neil 

Kinnock comes 
over as a nice 
bloke. I think it's 
his mannerisms, and the way 
he's on the same level and he’s 
ready to have a laugh with 
typical ordinary people. I 
don't think Margaret Thatcher 
ever would.” 

MORI’s poll echoes her 
feelings, because 36 per cent 
think Kinnock is down-to- 
earth, as opposed to 9 per cent 
forThatchen 30 percent think 
he understands the problems 
facing Britain ( 14 per cent): 28 
per cent think he has lots of 
personality ( 1 7 per cem); and 
25 per cent think he is more 
honest than most politicians 
(11 percent). 

In terms of leadership 
potential he is almost level 
pegging: 28 per cent see him as

a capable leader, only i 
percentage point below the 
Prime Minister’s rating, which 
might be interpreted as the 
fading of the Falklands factor 
with young voters. 

Kinnock may take further 
encouragement in the table of 
party support among those 
who expressed the intention to 
vote: 49 per cent said they 
were inclined to support the 
Labour party, compared with 


Tory 25 per cent) and Alliance 
(22 per cent). 

But it is a long way from 
that chart to getting half of the 
6.2 million of “Thatcher’s 
children” to vote Labour next 
time round. Only 34 per cent 
of them say they are certain to 
vote, and only half of these are 
Labour voters, so the support 
Kinnock can presently rely on 
is more like one sixth: about I 
million. And his image with 


Thatcher's children is by no 
means all positive. 

If the Prime Minister is 
perceived by them as un- 
pleasant but strong, the Oppo- 
sition leader is sometimes 
seen in precisely the opposite 
way: amiable but weak, often 
by comparison. 

This is hinted at in the poll: 
only 9 per cem feel he would 
be good in a crisis, compared 
to Thatcher’s 32 per cent. In 


the discussion groups, the 
feeling emerged with even 
greater clarity. 

Brett Grimshaw, an un- 
employed 23-year-old from 
Garforth near Leeds, is the 
sort of voter Labour might 
expect to have in the bag 
already. He says: “Thatcher 
gels stick for this, but at least 
she comes across in the media 
as being dynamic and forceful 
and in charge. Nobody hears 


about Kinno — he’s just not 
dynamic en igh. The only 
thing he's ev done is fall on 
his backside. 

The overri ng impression

Breakfast 

at

don't want what I do to be 
considered, as an". -Paloma 
wys firmly. "1 am hoi going to

This month, '-Paloma ta kes 
centre stage in London as she 
launches her own perfume; 
next week she attends the 
exhibition of Pablo Picasso's 
intimate sketchbooks; and her 
dramatic jewels will soon be 
on sale at the nesy Bond Street 
branch ofTiflariy... 

Breakfast at . Paloma's 
would be in her. elegant apart- 
ment filled with . bronzes. 
Lunch looks like- a film set. 
She sits in a geranium-filled 
courtyard, under a scarlet 
parasol in a lipstick-red linen 
jacket, her lips, vermilion 
against pale skin. 

“1 like the linear thing of 
having dark eyes and a red 
mouth against a white face", 
she says. “1 avoid the sun. And 
1 like my clothes to be like 
drawings — very clean and 
definite." 

H er colouring and 
her. passion for 
dressing in. scarlet 
and black seem 
Spanish, but she 
thinks of herself as French. 
She was brought up in the 
South of France by her 
mother, the artist Francoise 
Cilou She recalls her father's 
home, with a merry laugh, as 
"messy". 

"He was always working on 
a new thing. There were waves 
of ceramics, sculptures, can- 
vases. We never knew how the 
house was going to look. It was . 
always changing." Her home 
now is jn New York where she 
lives with her Argentinian- 
born husband Rafael Lopez 
Sanchez, a playwright and 
director for whom Paloma has 
designed siagt-cosumies. .

“In the 1960s people would 
talk about sculptures to wear", 
she says, "I think that’s the 
wrong way to go about it My 
jewellery ■ is ■ al| designed 
around the idea of a woman 
who will wear it. ?Part of the 
appeal of jewellery is as a 
talisman. It should be nice to 
touch." ’ , 

Colour is as important to 
her jewellery as it is to her life. 
Her inspiration comes from, 
the stones themselves. 1 she 
says, holding out a strong 
hand with stubby fingere to 
show me how her jewellery 
career 1 was launched with a 
ring mixing a pink nibilite and 
a pale blue sapphire; “Not my 
colours but somewhere out 
there is a blonde who can wear 
them". 

Inspiration domes also from 
architectural 'details, especial- 
ly in Italy where she has been 
spending her. summer hdi- 
davs in a frescoed palazzo 
outside Venice. “Sometimes 
vou carry designs in you for a 
number of years like a linger- 
ing dream”, she says. “But my 
jewellery is about shape. coL 


The famous name 
of Picasso is now 
brightening up the 
worlds of perfume 
and jewellery 

our and proportion, rather 
than telling a story." 

Paloma Picasso is 37. It is 
nearly 20 years since she 
graduated from a jewellery 
design course at Namcnrc and 
left ncr tabic at La Coupole to 
ask her friend Yves Saint 
Laurent how to cost her 
designs. The jewels went on 
sale in the Saint Laurent 
boutiques and Paloma has 
been faithful to him in her 
fashion. 

With the flair of someone 
who is consistently on the 
best-dressed list and reached a 
number one three years ago. 
she picked from Saint Laur- 
ent's new collection a graphic 
black and white houndsiootb 
check suit, a black crepe dress 
with a scarlet satin bow at its 
boat neck, topped by a black 
veiled hat 

"I like the clean line of the 
hat", she says. "I like the idea 
of my clothes standing up on 
their own like architecture. I 
don't ' like chiffon and soft 
fabrics. I wear a lot of black 
and red and I regard wearing a 
pate colour as a challenge." 
This she says with a broad 
smile that suggests she' does 
not take her fashion solemnly. 
Other favoured designers are 
Chanel and Alaia. 

The launch of a Paloma 
Picasso perfume is recognition 
of her strong personal style 
and international standing. It 
comes m a glass globe contain- 
ing golden liquid- and embed- 
ded in a circle of frosted glass. 
It looks like the Russian 
amber beads she has made up 
into a Tiffany necklace, or the 
tactile cabochon gems sunk in 
her miniature evening bags. 

"The aesthetic part I felt 
rather sure of from the 
beginning", she says. "I am 
very happy with the fragrance, 
too. Wc saw a lot of com- 
panies until wc found one that 
was sympathetic.. J thought 
that if they were going to use 
me and my namc.1 wanted to 
do something that would ex- 
press my personality." 

T he fragrance is from 
the perfume com- 
pany I'OrcaL Its 
packaging, in keep- 
ing -with Paloma’s 
image, is scarlet and black. 
The scent itself is fresh, floral 
and woody. "It has quite a 
masculine feeling", she ex- 
plains. "For years I used a 
man's cologne in the summer, 
now I can use my own." 

Paloma Picasso's perfume 
also has a family twist She 
was "raised by two artists". 
Bui the femity business on her 
mother's side was perfumery 
and she remembers vividly 
standing as a child under the 
Parfums Gilot sign. 

"That jvas more real to me 
in many ways than being 
Picasso's daughter", she says. 
"I suppose it was nearer to 
other people's experience." 

Paloma's name symbolizes 
the dove of peace which Pablo 
Picasso designed in the year of 
her birth for the World Con- 
of Peace. After her 
ithcr's death, in 1973. she 



devoted her energies to setting 
up the Music Picasso in Paris, 
which houses a display of his 
many artistic disciplines. 

“It's like one of the houses 
wc had", she says. "The things 
look as though they belong 
there." 

Paloma was also instr- 
umental in encouraging the 
public display of her father's 
sketchbooks, first in New 
York and now in London; The 
jottings are domestic, filled 
with homely details of time 
and place, rather than car- 
toons for the great canvases: 

"I think it is important to 
give a human side to Picasso", 
she says. “He has become so 
famous, he is almost in- 
human. People think immedi- 
ately of *Guemica' and the 
'Demoiselles d'Avignon'. 
They forget the human side."

Long 

suits 

are 

trumps 


British mens wear designers 
are walking tall — after a 
triumphant debut for their new 
high fashion show in London. 
For three days, leading mens- 
wear designers are playing 
host for the first time to 
international buyers, in ad- 
vance of the French men's 
fashion fair SEHM next 
weekend. 

Yesterday designers showed 
their elegant and ebullient 
dothes. Three major trends 
emerged: the return of the suit 
for a new generation; jackets 
ultra long, very short or Nor- 
folk shaped; die use of soft 
fabrics, especially jersey for 
trousers and shorts. 

The suit is the big story 
from Roger Dack at Franklyu, 
one of the co-founders of the 
English Menswear Designer 
collections, which have given 
birth to the new Designer 
Menswear Show. Square-cot 
jackets and high-rise trousers 
give style to his suits; inventive

Bad blood between British 
publishers lighting the piracy of 
our books in Asia, and Alan 
Donald, the British ambassador to 
Indonesia. After a delegation of 
top bookmen to the Far East the 
Publishers' Association has writ- 
ten to the Foreign Office 
complaining about his attitude.

Donald, instead of taking action to 
stem illegal book-copying, which 
costs our industry £80 million a 
year worldwide, has resigned him- 
self io (hat fact that nothing can be 
done and that any direct pressure

copyright law Mould only, (o use 
his words, “run into sand". The 
letter adds that during a briefing to 
the delegation the ambassador 
expressed sympathy for the Indo- 
nesians, on the grounds that 
pirated books are often the only 
alternative for students who can- 
not afford the legitimate product 
The FO confirms that it has 
received the letter, but describes 
the allegations as “a distortion", 
adding that Donald, who is on 
leave in (he UK. “does not 
endorse that version of events”.

Senior staff at the BBC were 
startled when they arrived at work 
yesterday to find invitations wait- 
ing for them from Lord King, 
reported to be Mrs Thatcher's 
candidate to become chairman of 
the BBC governors in succession 
to Stuart Young, who died last 
Thursday. The invitation is to a 
reception at the Conservative 
Party conference in Bournemouth 
next month, and is from King in 
his capacity aa chairman of British 
Airways. The timing makes it 
seem alarmingly fast work, but 
BA. with privatization looming,

Tories and media men. It would 
be uncharitable to look for any 
other explanation. 

Trade sanctions 

Trade unionists at Brighton wilt 
hunt in vain for the memoirs of 
Jack Jones, the former Transport 
and General Workers' leader, 
carefully published yesterday to 
coincide with the conference. 
TUC organizers told him that 
space at the conference centre is so 
limited that they cannot find room 
for him to set out his stall for 
Union Man. A work on the 
Tolpudtfle martyrs has been simi- 
larly frustrated. Indeed, so great is 
the dampdown on the least sign of 
private enterprise that the Na-

which was in feci written a year 
ago by the governor’s military 
assistant. Commander Michael 
Clarke, introduces tourists to the 
garrison by referring to the smart

The first stop for visitors to 
Framlingham. the quaint Suffolk

dried opium poppies, announces; 
“Off on the Orient Express. Back

details of his mother’s romantic 
trek. “I'm afraid it's all a

stumbled and poured the best pan

pagne and oysters were always a 
dangerous combination. 

1 PHS 


All this summer, thousands of 
Japanese visitors have been 
crowding their museums to look at 
a travelling exhibition of Henry 
Moore's sculptures and drawings. 
It is a phenomenon that is 
repeated wherever Moore's work 
is shown, and not only in such 
obvious centres as London. Paris, 
New York. Madrid and Florence, 
but in Latin America and in 
eastern Europe as well as in the 
Far East. Apart from Picasso, no 
living artist has ever had such 
adulation, certainly no sculptor. 
How is it to be explained? 

It is not as if sculpture is an easy 
art to appreciate, or to practise for 
(hat matter. But. there is some- 
thing fundamental about the 
sculptured object, which from 
cavc-d welling times onwards has 
frequently been regarded with awe 
and veneration. Sculpture exists in 
our world, and relates directly to 
us. It is there not to be explained, 
but to be worshipped as something 
that encapsulates a significance 
much greater than its physical 
presence. “Sculpture has a life of 
its own," Moore would say. 

As a student Moore was quick 
to respond to the special qualities 
of prehistoric and primitive sculp- 
ture. He always had a strong sense 
of the continuity of a great 
sculptural tradition which led 
through the Egyptians and the 
Greeks to the masters of the 
Middle Ages and to Michelangelo 
and Rodin. He came increasingly 
to feel that he was the natural heir 
and representative of that tra- 
dition. 

He knew instinctively that he 
had first to forge his personal 
language, and during the 1930s 
that is what he did. Though he 
rarely abandoned the figure al- 
together. he was prepared to 
abstract and distort in the search 
for a greater expressiveness. Mak- 
ing holes through the figure, for 
example, was a way of introducing 


Art and an 
artist worthy 
of worship 

by Alan Bowness 


concavities (hat could be set off 
against the more natural, rounded 
shapes of sculpture. No anist has 
ever acquired such total mastery 
of three-dimensional form. 

Although the more experi- 
mental work of the Thirties is 
probably Moore's greatest 
contribution to sculpture, it was 
during the war years that he found 
that h'» work could speak to a 
much larger audience. First with 
the drawings of Londoners shelter- 
ing on Underground platforms, 
and then with the first large 
molher-and-ehild and family 
group sculptures, he broke 
through to national and inter- 
national recognition. 

Moore's particular obsession 
was with the reclining female 
figure. He had discovered that the 
form of the recumbent body could 
be creatively related to the forms 
of the natural world, objects such 
as roots and pebbles and the 
landscape itself. This enabled him 
to give his reclining figures a 
timeless, universal quality. Moore 
was a great humanist, and in the 
language of sculpture he was 
expressing his faith in the continu- 
ity of life and in the strength of the 
bonds that tied man to woman, 
child to mother, mother to child. 
It is because Moore's sculptures- 


deal in such fundamentals that his 
universal appeal is to be ex- 
plained. 

Moore's enormous success 
made little difference to his way of 
life. During the war he and his 
wife. Irina, bad moved from 
Hampstead into the convened 
farm labourers' cottages in Perry 
Green which, with only the most 
modest of additions, remained 
their home. 

There was a wonderful natural 
rhythm about Moore's long cre- 
ative life, and each decade brought 
with it a shift of emphasis. After 
the war, he became the great 
public sculptor. He rarely made 
anything for a particular site, but 
there were always small sculptural 
maquettes in the studio which he 
thought might look good on a 
Jajger scale, and be enjoyed the 
challenge of the enlargement. 

As he grew older, more private 
concerns returned, both in the 
sculptures and in his drawings. In 
his seventies and early eighties, 
when movement was restricted, 
drawing became more important, 
and some of these very late works 
are as fine as anything he did. 

Visiting Moore was always a 
pleasure. He invited me almost 30 
years ago to look after the on- 
going publication of the catalogue 


of his sculpture. Every few months 
I would visit him to see what he 
had been doing, and when a new 
volume was in preparation we 
would choose photographs to- 
gether and confirm the titles of the 
sculptures. Moore tended some- 
times to flippancy in sub-titles, 
and had to be warned that the 
public (and the purchaser) takes 
such things seriously. Some of his 
greatest works — The Sheep Piece, 
for example — rejoice in unpreten- 
tious names. 

Moore liked to talk about his 
work and about sculpture gen- 
erally. and his remarks were 
always direct, simple and often 
very perceptive. Though his 
appearances on film and tele- 
vision were professional and effec- 
tive. he was at his best' with 
visitors to Perry Green. I often 
took'groups of students to see the 
work, and sometimes told Moore 
that we wouldn’t disturb him. But 
spying us in the garden, he would 
always come out to talk to us. 

He was manifestly the great 
artist and yet so human and 
approachable. In appearance he 
was sturdy and vigorous. It was 
often said that he looked like a 
prosperous Yorkshire farmer. 

Much has been said and written 
about his sculpture, but I don't 
think Moore ever paid much 
attention to it, apart from the early 
essays of his great friend, Herbert 
Read. The more profound philo- 
sophical and psychological inter- 
pretations were matters of 
indifference to him. His business 
was with the making, and he has 
left behind a remarkable legacy of 
sculptures and drawings that will 
always be with us. 

Centuries afterwards, it is only 
the artists who are remembered. 
In the death of Henry Moore, we 
have lost one of the greatest 
Englishmen of our time.

Paul Vallely on the intrigue surrounding Harvard’s 350th anniversary 

No tea 


party, 

this 

Boston 

birthday 

Boston 

It is to be hoped that the Prince of 
Wales, who arrives in Boston 
today for celebrations marking the 
350th anniversary of the founda- 
tion of Harvard University, has 
been advised on appropriate foot- 
wear. He is to take part in what 
one professorial wag has dubbed 
“a ballet in iron boots'*. 

Prince Charles was not orig- 
inally intended to be the star ofthe 
occasion. Its crowning moment 
was to have been an address by the 
President of the United States. 

You might think that a “demi- 
ccntcnniar anniversary is not as 
important as a foil centennial; and 
that indeed is the official line. The 
300th, in 1936. was a grand affair, 
with intellectuals and dignitaries 
from more than 500 universities 
and learned societies in atten- 
dance. The 350th. the university 
announced, would be more of a 
“family affair". 

Do not be fooled by the folksy 
phrase. This week's jamboree has 
been six years in the planning. Its 
100 showpiece symposia, con- 
certs. fireworks and a laser extrav- 
aganza. organized by the man who 
put together the Statue of Liberty 
celebrations, will cost more than 
SI million. 

“For this country. 350 years 
gives Harvard a powerful 
seniority.” says Professor David 
Maybury-Lewis. an expatriate 
Englishman who heads the 
university's anthropology depart- 
ment and its Peabody museum. 

Anniversaries are therefore 
more flamboyantly celebrated 
than at Harvard's mother univer- 
sity. Cambridge. President An- 
drew Jackson visited its 200th 
birthday party in 1836. President 
Grover Cleveland was there for 
the 250th. President Franklin D. 
Roosevelt spoke at the ter- 
centenary in 1936. 

So it was thought important that 
President Reagan should attend 
this week. He was invited to speak 
on “the university in a changing 
world", at the second of three 
convocations. 

The first response from the 
While House was favourable. 
Officials contacted the university 
to confirm that this would mean 
Reagan would be given an honor- 



ary degree, according to tradition: 
Cleveland and Roosevelt were so 
garlanded (President Jackson was 
himself a Harvard graduate so the 
honour was unnecessary). 

And then the “ballet in iron 
boots” began. 

Significant sections of the fac- 
ulty. including prominent profes- 
sors. noted that Reagan's policies 
made him “an enemy of higher 
education”. In private, they 
phrased it more bluntly. “The 
man is too wilfiilly stupid to be 
given a degree of any kind,” one 
senior academic told me over 
brandy in the tother-armchaired, 
oak-panelled faculty dub. 

After much backroom confer- 
ring, Harvard's seven-man 
corporation announced that no 
honorary degrees would be 
awarded. The university's 
information office hastily can- 
celled press releases it bad pre- 
pared announcing a degree for 
Reagan. Public statements de- 
clared that a degree ceremony 
would detract from the birthday 
celebration. Private admissions 
were of “a graceful compromise”. 
But they reckoned without 
Reagan. 

Piqued at the decision, he 
delayed his response until January 
this year, and then announced that 
he would be loo busy to attend. 
Harvard was bonified. White 
House spokesmen were at a loss to 
explain what he would be doing on 
the three days of celebration: “It’s 
just too far in advance to say. The 
president is a busy man. He gets 
invitations to speak at universities 
all the time." 

Harvard winced at the snub and 
turned its attention to Prince 
Charles - and the foundation-day 
address with which he was to open 
the first convocation. The or- 
ganizers began to underline his 
importance as a graduate of 
Cambridge University, which was 
the alma mater of many of 
Harvard's founders, including the 


puritan minister, John Harvard, 
whose name it took when he died. 

There were one or two dis- 
sidents. Principled republicans 
said America's founding fathers 
who signed the 1776 Declaration 
of Independence would turn in 
their graves. The student news- 
paper poked fan at polo players 
and architectural students who it 
alleged were taking etiquette les- 
sons in preparation for tea with 
the prince: 

Quietly, at the eleventh hour, 
the Secretary of State, George 
Shultz, slipped in to replace 
Reagan, his intellectual creden- 
tials unchallenged. 

These days at Harvard, as at 
most American universities, the 
conservatives tend to be found 
among the student body, and the 
radicals among the junior profes- 
sors. The senior common room 
complaints of the Sixties have 
been inverted. Academics moan 
of materialistic, competitive stu- 
dents who think of nothing but 
getting a high-paying job. 

Even those with a longer 
perspective, such as Maybury- 
Lewis, are bemused. “After a 
totally different set of worries with 
the idealists of the last generation, 
the pendulum has swung to the 
other extreme and the ethos has 
become much more to do with 
making a career. Some of us had 
only just got used to defending 
ourselves against the charge that 
we were too worldly.” 

Students are not deeply touched 
by controversial issues, according 
to Jonathan Moses of the 
campus's daily newspaper, the 
Harvard Crimson . “It is cool to be 
a conservative", in the words of 
his colleague. Becky Kramnick. 
And the newspaper’s news editor, 
Michael Nolan, says: “In a sense, 
we sign a contract to become 
elitists the moment we come 
here." 

There was a much greater 


outcry from staff than from stu- 
dents when it was discovered that 
several Harvard academics were 
engaged in research clandestinely 
funded by the CIA, Their grants 
were conditional on a CIA right to 
censor material before it was 
published. 

Harvard remains more intdtec- 
tually restless and vibrant than 
many of its British equivalents, 
according to the. English academ- 
ics who teach there. “It’s a 
strenuous and driven [dace,” says 
Maybury-Lewis. “It seems to in- 
spire industry in everyone. There 
are no quia niches for people to 
slumber in.” 

Dr Simon Schama, a professor 
of European history, who taught 
for 14 years at both Oxford and 
Cambridge before moving to Har- 
vard six years ago, values the 
university’s tolerance - “the free- 
dom to teach, within reason, 
pretty much anything I want to — 
and pursue the enthusiasms of my 
own research in the dassroom”. 

At the close of the tercentenary 
assembly 50 years ago. Harvard’s 
president, Lawrence Lowell 
endorsing a motion that the 
celebrations should be adjourned 
until September 2036, said: “If J 
read history aright, institutions 
have rarely been killed while they 
are alive. They commit suicide, or 
die from lack of vigour, and the 
adversary comes and buries them. 
So long as an institution conduces 
to human welfare, so long as a 
university gives to youth a strong, 
active intellectual life, so long as 
its scholarship does not degen- 
erate into pedantry, nothing can 
prevent its going on to greater 

prosperity.” 

He called on his fellow believers 
to respond “aye” and the con- 
trary-minded “no". The vote was 
unanimous. This year, albeit at the 
cost of the absence of Ronald 
Reagan, they expat it to be 
unanimous once again. 


Odds begin to edge toward Nimrod 


Everything now points to the 
contentious Nimrod airborne 
early-warning system being gives 
ihc contract to equip the Royal Air 
Force, subject to the Ministry of 
Defence having confidence in the 
claims of its manufacturer, GEC, 
that its performance has been 
greatly improved. 

The process of forming recom- 
mendations on the rival merits of 
the British Nimrod and the 
American contenders for the con- 
tract is well under way at the 
ministry and is expected to lead to 
a Cabinet decision at the end of 
October. 

After nearly 10 years of tech- 
nical problems. GEC appears to 
have taken a firm grip on the 
project. However, the last few 
years have made the ministry so 
sceptical (hat GECs claims are 
bound to be subjected to ex- 
haustive examination. 

Politically then: would be high 
risks in "cancelling Nimrod, 
particularly if an early election 
were in prospen. If the cabinet 
becomes convinced by GECs 
latest claims, that will make its 
1 position much easier, 
r The £900 million that has al- 


ready been spent, though only 
about one-third by GEC. would 
not be wasted, and the cost of 
completing the project, perhaps 
about £400 million, would be 
lower than for any of its rivals. 

GEC would also hope to move 
into a lucrative export market in 
conjunction with the Lockheed 
Company of Georgia, installing 
GEC electronic equipment in 
Lockheed's Hercules transports. 

However, the three American 
companies challenging Nimrod 
are conducting an intensive cam- 
paign. Boeing, maker of the Awacs 
aircraft that is in service with the 
US Air Force and Nalo. is (he 
front-runner, but there are some 
large uncertainties about its bid. 

It has been particularly secretive 
about the price it is asking, but this 
has been generally believed to be 
about £1 billion for seven aircraft. 
A recent report from Paris sug- 
gested. however, that Boeing was 
likely to supply three Awacs 
aircraft to the French air force for 
about £1 billion. To have to pay 
£1 billion for seven would put a 
severe strain - on the defence 
budget: to pay well above that 
uouldtecm virtually impossible. 


The Ministry of Defence is 
known to have been talking with 
the French about the possibility of 
making a joint purchase, which 
could bring the price down quite 
substantially. 

There is also confusion about 
the size of the “offset” packages 
which the American companies 
are offering. Each was required to 
undertake that if it were chosen it 
would place work here equal to the ' 
foil value of the contract. 

The packages translate into “at 
least 8.000 man- years" by Boeing, 
16.000 by Grumman and 65,000 
by Lockheed of California (in this 
field not an ally of its Georgia 
cousin). The huge gap between 
Lockheed and the two others is 
explained by the fact that Lock- 
heed appears to have taken credit 
not only for the jobs that it would 
directly create, but also for other 
“spin-off” jobs. A Lockheed 
figure comparable to those of 
Boeing and Grumman might be 
20.000. This leaves the Boeing 
offset looking niggardly. 

One of GECs industrial argu- 
ments in favour of Nimrod has 
been that if 1 it were cancelled 


Britain would lose forever the 
ability the develop a full airborne 
early-warning system. However, 
this argument is partly neutralized 
as a result of three other British 
electronics companies — Ptessey. 
Ferranti and Rooal — having given 
public support to Boeing's bid, All 
three have agreements, contingent 
on Awacs winning the contest, for 
long-term collaboration with 
Boeing or its radar supplier, 
Westinghouse. 

GEC has been left looking short 
of industrial friends. British Aero- , 
space.— which might have been 
expected to be an ally, havingbeen 
heavily involved with airframe 
work on Nimrod — has made only 
polite noises about hoping the 
project can be brought to comple- 
tion; and has. at the request of the 
Ministry of Defence, provided 
technical assistance for a compet- 
itor. Grumman, which is propos- 
ing to instal its own electronic 
equipment in the aircraft. British 
Aerospace would be the principal 
British associate of Grumman if 
that company won.

To Jo, Mo, Bo, 
and Michael 


It started on the Tuesday. Reports 
suggest that much of the popula- 
tion spent its summer selling and 
buying houses. So did I. or ax tost 
trying to. The most disconcerting 
aspect of tl all was renewing 
aquaintance with estate agents. 

I thought I had them taped. 
Determined to avoid prolonged 
talk with them about “exposed 
beams” (through 1920s houses) 
and a “wealth of desirable fittings 

— viewing is urgently recom- 
mended”; indeed, determined to 
escape any personal contact with 
them, I set out on the Tuesday, up 
the High Street, which they have 
taken over, and silently issued 
them all with a standard sheet 
describing the house I wanted and 
asking them to send information 
on any they had which fitted the 
description. One does not escape 
so easily. Almost immediately 
there was a telephone call: 

(Unfamiliar but cheerful mice.) 
“Hello, Mr Anderson?” 

“Yes.” 

“Monica here.” 

“Monica?” , 

(Even more cheerful.) 
“Monica.” 

“Monica who?” 

(Surprised.) “Monica from Dob- 
son and Tytler. Are you still 
interested in a prope rtee-ee?” 

They all did it. Within two 
hours we had Monica, Mark, 
Nigel, Christopher and a host of 
others telephoning day and night, 
all introducing themselves in this 
curious fashion. Obviously mod- 
ern estate-agent etiquette requires 
“diems” to note the agent's 
Christian name and recognize it 
immediately after a few days. 

It’s surprisingly compelling, this 
Christian-name business. On the 
Wednesday a friend came to 
dinner. He had just returned from 
a cruise and was visibly shaken. In 
between calls from David (“from 
Watson and Green's, the estate 
agents; you asked us to call you 
about a propertec-ee”) and Donna 
(“we’ve just taken on this 
pFoperteoee") he explained that 
not only had all the stewards and 
waiters on the ship worn little 
badges with their Christian names 

— the Goanese were all called 
Harold — but the English pas- 
sengers had obediently fallen in 
line and used the names. No one, 
except my reactionary friend, 
called them by their trade. 

On Wednesday I went to a 
university library for a regular 
inspection of the academic jour- 
nals. Nancy Mitford explains, 
quite dearly, that intellectuals 
always refer to each other by 
surname alone, and so do left- 
wing people. * As many of the 
journals are written by authors 
who are both, one fdt safe. But no. 
A certain Dufficy, in Youth and 
Policy: the Journal of Critical 
Analysis, reviewing a book on 
drug abuse by N Dorn and N 
South, wrote: “Given that Nick 
and Nigel's work was to provide a 


useful document not just for the 
agencies and the DHSS but for 
social work practice in general, 
who will benefit?” 

Of course, intellectuals have 
been doing this, in verbal ex- 
changes. for some time. Now the. 
conference season is here there 
will be lots of it. Indeed, there are 
masters of iu people who have 
perfected the art ofrcmetnbennga 
chap's Christian name after one 
introduction. Once they have it, 
they use it, inserting it remorse- 
lessly in every sentence. And the 
more they hate someone, the more 
they do it, like in those television 
discussions where implacable foes 
lace each shot of venom with: 
“But Roger knows 

It is, I suppose, an achievement 
to remember Christian names, for 
there are some very odd ones 
about, in particular among femi- 
nists, where a stern and hermaph- 
rodite brevity is prized: Jo, Mo, 
Bo, Chris- or Kris, Nik. Ben ami 
one I rather like. Biph. I was 
unlucky enough the same week to 
be in a town during a folk music 
festival- Folk enthusiasts have 
names a little like feminists' but 
with more Ss and Zs: Toz, Chas, 
Boz. 

It's worse if the person is 
divorced. Divorce plays havoc 
with Christian names. With the 
increasing tendency for divorced 
men to remarry younger wives 
goes the tendency of the new wife 
to rechristen her mate. It's part of 
the same phenomenon whereby 
sensible old friends, in order to 
match the new wife, suddenly lake 
up jogging, poetry or seal-saving 
and become even more boring 
than she is. A chap one has known 
for 40 years as Michael becomes 
Mick, or a friend who has been 
Richard (one knew he had a T) 
becomes Tim. Sometimes they 
take you aside and whisper: “I'm 
not Richard any more: I'm Tim. 
Jenny prefers it. 

One solution, which I tried out 
at a drinks party, was to call 
everyone, all the men at least, by 
the same name. After being in- 
troduced to 20 or 30 people and 
trying out several, it was clear that 
while it was not the most common 
name, Michael was the name 
which chaps who weren't called 
Michael least minded being called. 

Don’t misunderstand me. I'm 
not against Christian names. In 
fact. I'm bound to own that it was 
quite nice being telephoned by lots 
of young ladies who introduced 
themselves as Monica or what- 
ever. It made one feel liked, as if 
Monica really cared about me and 
my house: Until Friday when I 
went into the estate agent’s and 
caught her on the phone to some 
other chap. 

(Cheerfully, just as cheerfully, in 
faa identically.) “Monica here.” 
She is now Michael too.

Presumably to improve its image, 
HM Customs and Excise has just 
published an extraordinary vol- 
ume called The VAT Book cf Love 
Stories. To give you some idea of 
this revolutionary work, 1 bring 
you one of the shorter stories, in 
its entirety. 

Home for Harriet 
Harriet Wilkins had lost both her 
parents at the age of 23, as part of a 
National Health Service cutback, 
and bad suddenly found herself ail 
alone in the world. All alone, that 
is, except for 28 old people who 
lived in the same house as herself. 

You may find it surprising dial 
someone as young and bright and 
vital as Harriet should want to live 
with so many old people, but we 
often under-value the conversa- 
tion and wonderful experiences of 
our old people, don't you find? 

There was also the consid- 
eration that Harriet had just 
inherited an old people’s home 
from her parents, and that these 28 
folk — yes, I think folk is a nicer 
word than people — each paid 
Harriet a small sum every week to 
stay in the house. 

1 cannot put a precise figure on 
it About £450 a week. I should 
think. Certainly enough to make 
Harriet a very rich young lady, 
and to compensate in some s mall 
degree for the loss of her parents. 

Some of the 28 old folk found it 
very hard to provide £450 every 
week without dipping deep into 
their life savings, but as they an 
cheerily said: “You can't take ft 
with youT 

However much Harriet enjoyed 
the company of these wonderful 
old people, she sometimes han- 
kered after younger companion- 
ship, so she was oveijoyed one day 
when a young gardener was sent 
by the agency that looked after the 
gardens and rooted out the rhodo- 
dendrons when the old people's 
arthritis got too bad. 

Frank was all that a gardener 
should be. she thought — tall, 
handsome, humorous and wining 
to ask her out for the evening. 

“How did you ever get into 
gardening?” she asked him, as 
they danced violently to the 
strains of Gotta Get Your Form In. 
Baby by Vince and the Vatmen 
(Excise Label 341 3500 04) in the 
local disco. 

Frank smiled softly. "What did 
you say?” he shouted. 

Harriet wrote down on a piece 
of paper: “How did you ever get 
into gardening?” and passed him 


the note. So did these two young 
things converse all evening, until 
Harriet had established that Frank 
had trained as an accountant but 
had found a financial post hard to 
get, and now preferred the fresh 
air. 

“How much a week do you 
spend on linen?” he shouted back. 
It seemed an odd question for a 
gardener, but she supposed it was 
his old accountancy showing 
through. She dung to him and tokl 
him all he wanted to know about 
the expenses of old folk's homes. 

Life bloomed until the dreadful 
day when Mr Ken wright arrived. 
Mr Ken wright told Harriet be was 
from something called the Cus- 
toms and Excise, and that she 
owed him £90,000 in VAT. 

Harriet had never heard of 
VAT. Mr Ken wright tried to 
explain to her. She could make no 
sense of iL Mr Ken wright gave up 
trying to explain it to her and went 
bade to the ampler course of 
demanding £90,000, explaining 
that if she did not hand it over, she 
would go to prison. 

At this news Harriet burst into 
tears, and was infinitely relieved 
to see the manly form of Frank, 
who was passing the window at 
that moment and promptly en- 
tered. They were, luckily, French 
windows. 

“Oh Frank!” she raom deH. 
“This man says I owe him £90,000 
and if I don’t pay it I will go to 
prison and who will look after the 
dear old folk then?” 

Frank looked at her. Then he 
looked at Mr Ken wright- Then he 
looked at the figures, which is 
perhaps what he should have done 
in the fust place, and finally he 
looked at her again. 

“I'm afraid he's right, Harriet,” 
he said. “You do owe £90,000 and 
it is only right that you should go 
to jaiL But it cannot be for longer 
than nine months or a year, and I 
will wait for you to come out, and 
I win look after your old folk for 
youT 

The thought of Frank wailing 
for ho- sustained Harriet all 
through her prison months, and I 
am sure you will not be surprised 

lhat ^ 8 01 married 
and lived happily ever after. The 
one thing that Frank never told 
hw was that he was a plainclothes 
VAT agent sent to the old folk's 
home m spy out the land, and that 
it was he who had sent her to jaiL 
But every couple should have one 
or two secrets from each other, 
should they not? >

THE TIMES TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 2 1986 


13 


Pennington Street, London El 9XN Tdephonc 01-4814100 


WHITE HEAT WANTED 


Bntain s exclusion from the 
- 1 st century is already being 
mapped. Among the non- 
SrT? 1cans who travelled on 
NASA s spaceshuttle before its 
grounding were civilians from 
West Germany and Japan. A 
single Briton was at some stage 
to have joined but he was a- 
military officer “*nd he was 
some way down lhe queue. 

The choice of passengers 
represented the cold facts that 
West Germany has a civil 
space programme, focused on 
propulsion, that the Japanese 
have been concentrating (typi- 
cally) on industrial applica- 
tions of vacuum and zero- 
gravity manufacturing; and 
that here, as: the Science and 
Engineering Research Council 
• has again reported, space tech- 
nology is seriously under- 
funded. The large R & D 
budget of the Ministry of 
Defence simply does not come 
into this reckoning. British 
Aerospace is pursuing its 
Hotol project in inglorious 
- autarky. 

Space is not the be-all and 
end-all of science. But it does 
not take an Arthur C. Clarke to 
realize the extent to which it is ■ 
a crucial frontier of contem- 
porary knowledge, pure and 
applied. Reaching out for 
opportunity in space (includ- 
ing the opportunity ofbusiness 
profit) is surely a sign of an 
advanced society's forth in its 
own future. 

Since the scale of expen- 
diture is so great, space pro- 
grammes inevitably involve 
government Space requires 
intervention, large-scale public 
investment for the sake of 
' rewards, individual and collec- 
tive, in years to come. 

The Government however, 
has no policy for space. It has 
hardly a policy for science.' It. 
offers no dear' set of themes 
that are intelligible to the 
voters and taxpayers at large. 

It offers nothing to inspire and 
stimulate Britons who will 
.'pome -of age jin the next 
century. 

In the British system, de- 
cisions about- scientific Re- 
search are^ Jitfief;. pre-empted j 
by. the military or devolved to 


panels of “experts" in .the 
research councils and the 
University Grants Committee. 
The public, and most poli- 
ticians, are. excluded. 

Only Occasionally does de- 
bate break the - surface. The 
Kendrew report oh the British 
subscription t o the high-energy 
' arceleraiorat CjERN did at last 
widen the discussion about the 
nation’s investment in partide 
physics. ' 

Some argue that what is 
required is -a ministry for 
science outside the Depart- 
ment of Education and Sci- 
ence, or at least a single source 
within WhitehaD of science 
' policy-making. Yet new 
administrative forms are less 
important than a new scien- 
tific awareness round the Cabi- 
net table;, a set of political 
priorities to steer-research. 

The unpleasant episode of 
Oxford University's refusal of 
an honorary degree to the 
Prime Minister, taken together 
with' rumblings' within the 
Royal . Society about her 
fellowship did not merely be- 
tray; as many thought politi- 
cal opposition among 
academics. The antagonism 
also reflected disappointment 
The community of scientists 
had vested high hopes in Mrs 
Thatcher, a Prime Minister 
trained as a natural -scientist 

Her Government however, 
has behaved towards science 
in the same way as its prede- 
cessors. Its attitude to research 
money is.as to an item in the 
accounts to be augmented (or 
more usually subtracted from) 
to meet financial targets. This 
has contrasted, oddly, with the 
Government’s urgent recog- 
nition. of the need to 
strengthen numbers trained in 
the science disciplines at 
undergraduate level. . 

, In his presidential addressto 
the British Association for the 
Advancement of Science yes- 
terday, Sir George Porter 
spoke of the need to “force 
science down people's 
throats". That sense of alarm 
is understandable but. corning 
from a scfentisC It has the taint 
of special pteading.Nor has the' 
carping tone of the' "Save 


British Science campaign been 
helpful. 

A new alliance, between 
scientists and politicians is 
• needed. There is a political 
case for revolution in prior- 
ities. as recognized by such 
ministers as Mr Geoffrey Pat- 
lie at the Department ofTrade 
- and Industry. This would re- 
order the Government’s 
spending taking money from 
the R & D budget consumed 
by defence and putting it into 
the civil sector. Defence R & D 
may produce elegant. designs, 
as observers at Farn borough 
this week will testify, but the 
disparity between -the 
country’s military profile and 
its economic prospects be- 
comes glaring 

Scientists and ministers 
have shown they can make 
common cause: The . Govern- 
ment has, rhetorically, rec- 
ognized the need for 
strengthening the teaching of 
science and mathematics in 
schools. Now the words need 
to be backed by emergency 
action. Mr Baker has- an 
opportunity. Even Sir Keith 
Joseph, more dearly than his 
successor an exponent of mar- 
ket freedoms, saw that the 
“drain" of scientific talent 
abroad was robbing British 
laboratories of a future, and 
would have to be corrected. 
That means money for sal- 
aries. and money for projects. 

The Government's enthu- 
siasm for closer partnership 
between science and the. pri- 
vate sector has yet to run its 
full course. But eventually 
additional public funds will 
have to be subscribed, and 
they will not all -be cosir 
effective in the accountant's 
sense. Sdenlific progress de- 
pends on built-in redundancy; 
who can predict the areas of 
successful research?! 

A generation ago. Harold 
Wilson coined his famous 
phrase about the technological 
revolution. Such speech- 
makers' diches. should not be 
despised today. The need for 
politicians to apply their arts 
in commending science to the 
Voters is "greater than e*er. 


THE CASE FOR VISAS 


The need focxloser regulation 
of entry into Britain from parts 
of the Third World has been 
becoming apparent for some 
lime. More then 22,000 poten- 
tial visitors to Britain were 
turned away in the twdve 
months up to June 1986 
because immigration officials 
thought their reasons for entry 
were spurious. The figures for 
July were some 60 per cent 
higher than those for the 
comparable period last year. . 

In recent weeks the pres- 
sures . upon officials at 
Heathrow airport have be- 
come intolerable as planeloads 
of potential visitors have de- 
scended on Terminal Three. 
Queues have lengthened, 
detention centres have become 
impossibly overcrowded, fam- 
ilies have had to be housed in 
expensive hotels at public 
expense while their claims to 
come in are being sifted. 

It is against this background 
that the Government 1ms de- 
cided that visas should be 
demanded for all visitors to 
this country from, Nigeria and 
Ghana, and from coimtries in 
the Indian sub-continent- ex- 
cept Sri Lanka whose burgeon- 
ing emigrants already have to 
supply them. It is against this 
same background that the 
decision must be endorsed. 


It is a sensitive subject at the 
' best of times — and this is not 
one of them. Accusations of 
discrimination and racism will 
ho doubt be hurled at White- 
hall from outside the country 
and within it, and this 
autumn's party conferences 
wifi be heavy with. humbug. - 

Yet enuy certificates for 
people wishing to settle in 
-Britain (visas in effect) have 
been required since as long ago 
as 1 968. No Government since 
has seen fit to reverse this and. 
for all Mr Kinnock’s heady 
promises, it is hard to see a 
future Labour administration 
doing so. This bad the effect 
last year of limiting the num- 
bers who settled in this coup- 
try' to 500 from Nigeria 660 
from Ghana and 17,500 from 
the sub-continent. 

The numbers who came 
here to visit however were 
much higher — 200,000 from 
Nigeria, 78,000 from Ghana 
and as many as 400,000 from 
the four countries on the 
Indian, sub-continent. India 
itself. Pakistan. Sri Lanka and 
Bangladesh. No doubt many of 
these were genuine short-term 
viators, spending holidays 
here with relatives or sight- 
seeing in the capital But there 
are - at least grounds for 
suspecting that many more 


..were npt. If one accepts the 
central-thesis that immigration 
to Britain must be limited. 
. then one must also support the 
closure of a clearly discernible 
loophole in the system. 

There is an argument that a 
visa scheme, which means 
installing a filter system in the 
country of origin, is not the 
best way to deal with the 
problem. It will almost cer- 
tainly be, more expensive than 
the alternative of recruiting 
more immigration officials in 
this country —about five times 
more expensive —according to 
one estimate. At least 100 or so 
officials will have to be re- 
cruited and trained and moved 
with their families to. the 
countries concern ecLBut some 
cost can be recouped by charg- 
ing more for tjiose visas which 
are granted and by saving on 
■the provision of temporary 
accomodation in this country. 
By shifting someof the burden 
overseas, moreover, h should 
make the . problem easier to 
control. 

-It is more sensible for all 
parties if a would-be illegal 
immigrant is found out before 
he steps upon the aircraft' The 
possession of a visa should not 
endow the holder with an 
automatic right to enter Brit- 
tain. But it should be. a first 
qualification.

Chapel heritage 

From Mr Paul Shepherd

to you about listed Nonconformist

problems of owning one. 

I am the secretary of a Baptist

Battle against weeds 

From Mr John Holland 
Sir. Mr St John (August 28) 
possesses an imfortunaie -antipa- 
thy to nature that seems to be 
shared by many' land owners. - 

Motorway verges are oases of 
relatively undisturbed land and 
arc a valuable haven for many 
increasingly uncommon speciesof 
flowers and insects. If a few stray 
thistles from these verges ever 
manage to gain afoothold m the 
sterile monoculture that sur- 
rounds them, the worfl that could 
happen would be a tiny reduction 
of the vast food mountains that fill 
the warehouses of Europe. 

The day will come when all 
wildlife is driven from the face of 
the earth, but until then, a few 
thistles are unlikely to seriously 
deplete the human race: 

Yours foiihfiilly-

Early retirement 

From Mr ft S. Musgmvc 
$j r ; One cannot blame a stat- 
istician (Mr Carroll: August 25) 
for advocating early rctirementas 
a cure for unemployment The 
idea has obvious appeal. • 

£ 


Early retirement is one of 
numerous alleged cures .for un- 
employment known collectively 
as “labour supply reduction" mea- 
sures. This category Includes re- 
duced working hours, delayed 
entry into the labour force for 
youths.' reduced immigration and 
increased emigration. These ideas 
have been around for centuries: 
for example. James I thought that 
unemployment would be reduced 
if die unemployed were carted off 
to Newfoundland and Virginia. 

The fallacy in these ideas is as 
follows. If labour supply can be 
' reduced relative to demand with- 
out inflationary consequences, 
then it must ipso facto be possible 
to go for the much better, alter- 
native of raising demand relative 
to labour supply (that is. providing 
jobs for those who want them 
rather than artificially dissuading 
or preventing people from work- 
ing). 

On the other hand if demand 
cannot be raised relative to labour 
supply without unacceptable infla- 
tion, then neither can labour 
supply be reduced without un- 
acceptable inflation. 

Yours faithfully.

Lives at risk from the mullahs 


From MrReza Fazcti 
Sir. On Tuesday. August I9at 2J0 
in the afternoon my son. Bijan. 
who was only 22 years old. was 
killed when working in my shop in 
Kensington' High Street by a 
terrorist bomb intended for me. 

For several weeks before his 
death I had received threats to my 
life and the slogan "your death is 
coming" had ban scrawled on the 
window of my shop. What had I 
done to deserve this? 1 had used 
my art as a film-maker to expose 
to the people of Iran and to the 
world the present-day rulers of 
Iran as they really are. They pose 
as holy men. interested only in 
doing the work of God. but in 
reality they are corrupt, greedy 
and sadistic, and they cynically 
distort the" Holy Scriptures to 
compel the deeply religious people 
of Iran to do their bidding. 

The -Western media seem only 
to be interested in the Persian Gulf 
war. but for more important is 
what is happening within Iran, 
because it will be events within 
Iran, not at the war front, which 
will shape the destiny of that 
region of the world. ' t 

Since they came to power in 
1979 Khomeini and the mullahs 
have inflicted a reign of terror on 
the Iranian people which can be 
compared only with that of Hitler 
and. like Hitler, they have had no 
hesitation in torturing and 
murdering many thousands of 


political prisoners. This has 
continued to the present day and I 
■ cannot' understand why the West- 
ern Press, who have shown so 
much concern for human rights in 
South Africa, appear to care so 
liulc about the fete of people in 
Iran. 

Iranian exiles in Britain are 
portrayed as a disorganised rabble, 
-interested only in fighting 
amongst ourselves;, but in net we 
arc divided into only two main 
groups: those who believe, like 
Rajavi and the Mojahcdin. in the 
communist alternative: and those 
who. like Shapour Bakhuar. be- 
lieve in democracy and human 
rights, perhaps under a constitu- 
tional monarch such as you have 
in Britain. I have had no hesita- 
tion in pledging my support to the 
latter cause, not only because it is 
stronger but also because com- 
munism would be even worse 
than the mullahs. 

Just- as the death of WPC 
Yvonne Fletcher served to focus 
world attention upon the crim- 
inals ruling Libya, perhaps the 
death of my beloved son may 
serve to focus the attention of the 
world upon the much greater evil 
ndw ruling Iran, and upon the 
urgent need for change. 

Yours faithfully,

Defining a good don 

From Professor R. A. H'ea/e 
Sir. Progress consists in the correc- 
tion of old mistakes by new ones. 
It is. therefore, hard to see why. as 
Lucy Hodges (August 20) reliably 
reports, die maintenance of stan- 
dards should be an obstacle be- 
tween cash and academe. 

Other bodies claim to monitor 
performance. Doctors, solicitors, 
builders, auctioneers — to name a 
few — have watchdog bodies on 
standards. But they do not quan- 
tify them. The percentages of 
patients cured. . lawsuits won. 
houses saved from collapse, and 
rarities secured do not enter into 
the equation even though this 
might be of interest to the con- 
sumer (= patient, client, buyer, 
bidder). ■ ■ 

To maintain standards requires,, 
at least a whiff of restrictive 
practices. Standards are main- 
tained only if you can keep people 
away from the elite you have, 
managed toijoin. . : v 
The pattern, therefore, musts. H 
is the detail that eludes agreement 
The reason is- dear. As their • 
designation implies, universities 
are • mutti-disciplinary. 'poly- 
morphous and- complex aggregates 
of people— the very opposite of 
the above monolithic examples. 
So why not try something really 
revolutionary like defining stan- 
dards for dons in terms of the 
success which they achieve? ' 1 


If they are employed to train 
philosophers, they shall "be judged 
by the percentage of successful 
sages they have trained, say. 
during a period of six years. If 
archaeology is their pigeon, then 
let the standard be the number of 
diners that have passed through . 
their hands and have discovered 
Sutton Hoos. 

■The BBC told us the other day 
that a large number of students of 
physics finish up as accountants: 
when one recalls the number of 
quantum leaps made by contem- 
porary firms, all credit to the dons 
who train their flocks in quantum 
mechanics. 

This suggests that performance 
indicators for dons should be 
flexible, for rigidity in one would 
lead to ossification in the other. 
Bui if flexible, one might as well 
stick to subjective opinion and 
tiltlc-laulc which; served the UGC 
recently so well. Or should an- 
other problem receive prior atten- 
tion? 

Once performance indicators 
have been- arrived at for deahs. 
directors, principals.- vicc-chan- 
ccllors. and- perhaps Secretaries of 
State for Education, those" for dons 
Ail! surely be easy to aferfce on.

Paying in cathedrals 

From the Reverend W. R. Hanford 
Sir. Your perceptive leader. 
"Charging in the cathedral" (Au- 
gust 18). highlights an issue which' 
arouses strong feelings, but which 
is likely to become much more of a 
reality with escalating costs and 
with no real likelihood of State 
aid. 

Half my ministry has been spent 
in cathedrals and I still believe in 
them. In modem limes they have 
become resource centres for di- 
oceses. centres of Christum educa- 
tion. preaching, worship, and a 
host of specialised ministries, as 
well as continuing to be places of 
choral excellence and centres for 
great occasions. In short, there 
would seem to be a case for saying 
that an admission charge is in- 
tended (quite frankly) to support 
the work of the cathedral. 

The entrance charge to the 


London Zoo is (so I gather) not 
just for the privilege of seeing the 
animals, but also to support the 
work of the Royal Zoological 
• Society. 

. An admission charge would 
' dearly include the aim of keeping 
the wads standing and the roof on; 
•but more important!) it might 
bring home to a visitor, by careful 
displays and information, that the 
bunding exists for a particular 
purpose, and that an admission 
charge is designed to support the 
cathedral in all aspects of its work. 

If this were clearly put it might 
go some way to overcoming the 
inhibition to entrance, charges 
which is still felt by many 
ch urchpeopfc and others. 

Yours faithfully.

Heat of the moment 

From MrJ. S. F. Grind/ay 
Sir. The Times was never a 
recommended fuel for “Volcano" 
kettles, as Mrs Hocking suggests 
(August 26). Whether this was 
because of the fine quality of the 
.contents or the newsprint is not in 
our records. What is sure is that 
post-Wapping newsprint has 
greater calorific value than that up 
at Printing House - Square. 

Over the years, the most consis- 
tent fuel has been The Irish Times. 
The role reason is that large 
numbers of users of the “Volcano" 
(or Kelly kettles, as they are now 
known) tend to enjoy brewing up 
whilst on fishing expeditions on 
the other side of the Irish Sea. 

T believe that Desmond BagJey. 
in his novel Flyaway . advocates as 
fuel the use of dried camel dung. 
As supplies of this arc somewhat 
limited in these parts, thorough 
tests have not been carried out 
Maybe Mr BagJey or others have 
some first-hand experience that 
can be passed on. 

Yours foithfuly.

■Getting off to a 
good start 

From Mr Terry J. Carr 
Sir, Mark Dowd’s article on the 
traditional break fay (August 27) 
certainly highlighted a current 
British weakness. 

There are numerous guides to 
good hotels, good food and good 
pubs. Asa regular traveller by car 1 
carry several of them with me. All 
the guides I've read concentrate 
on the wonders and good value of 
lunch and the splendours and cost 

of dinner. Mention of breakfast 
In alone breakfast excellence, is 
sparse. 

1 agree that breakfast is “the 
meal that's meant to get you under 
way". Yet carlv-moming king- 
distance travel is often made 
abysmal through lack of awareness 
and publicity on places to stop for 
breakfast. 

I believe that good value and 
excellent breakfasts do exist for 
the casual traveller and that the 
situation could, improve with 
support from the catering industry 
and the general public. 

May 1 make a pica for one of the 
many publishing houses to as- 
semble and issue an annual Good 
British Breakfosl Guide? In the 
meantime, can current guides, 
such as The Good Food Guide. 
provide a list of known good 
places that welcome casual vis- 
itors for breakfast between 7 and 
9.30 am? 

Let's not discriminate against 
breakfast in fovour of lunch, 
dinner or even afternoon tea. Lex's 
balance the emphasis and high- 
light some good things about our 
breakfast heritage. Above all let's 
encourage the business breakfast 
It can be fun!

Medical claims 

From MrG. 11. Turner 
Sir. In the report (August 19) on 
increases in medical defence 
subscriptions h is suggested that 
"a number of claims arc either 
misconceived or frankly bogus”. 

Could not the problem be 
overcome by allowing the Health 
Service Commissioner the right to 
investigate complaints involving 
“clinical judgement"? This proce- 
dure. already supported by Par- 
liament and patients' consumer 
- groups, would ensure that claim- 
ants with insubstantial cases were 
discouraged from taking legal 
proceedings.

Legal divisions 

From Mr David A. R. Green

(August 28) about constant criti-

more convincing had the rest of

adding to iL Those who have 
passed the Law Society's final

Bar's minimal — degree, for 
.example, will have had a fairly 
hoarse laugh over lhe significance 
he attaches to the latter. 

What most of us would like to 
sec is A greater acknowledgement 

■IL 


of the realities of legal practice 
from both branches of the legal 
profession. 

For its part, the Bar has never 
been particularly generous in 
acknowledging that solicitors 
stand between it and the general 
public, receive all the flak, and 
carry the main burden of over- 
heads and case preparation, 
including the obligation of ensur- 
ing that everyone. Bar included, is 
paid. 

Nor has it been very forthcom- 
ing over • the foci that . some 
solicitors arc at least as well 
qualified to deal with some cases 
as any barrister. 4 

■a'* 


For their part solicitors could . 
more openly say that whatever the 
rules might be they would, not 
dream of assuming the barrister’s 
function in many, perhaps most, 
cases where barristers arc pres- 
ently employed. Bui what both 
should accept is that the client's 
interest comes before everything, 
it is that which demands an end to 
arbitrarily cosily rules of demarca-

SEPTEMBERS 1918 

The third strike of the 
Metmpttiltan Police wax a far 
truire serious affair than the 
strikes uf lS72 and IH9n There 
teas considerable public support 
far the police, a lectin/; shared by 
The Times, which published a 
sympathetic leader. The demand 
fur union recognition became a 
contentious matter and led to a 
walk-out in August. 1919, by a 
relatively small number ttf men. 
The Prrfrcc Federation replaced 
the Police ( 'nion in the autumn nf 
1919. 


POLICE KETURN 
TO DUTY. 

As the result nf the intervention 
nf Mr. Lkiyd George, and confer- 
ences between him and the execu 
live «>f the union, the London 
police strike was settled on Satur- 
day and the men returned prompt- 
ly to duty ai night. The terms of 
the settlement were announced, at 
meeting on Tower-hill, attended by 
about 7.000 policemen, os follows: 

An innttv nf urge* of 1.1s. per 
ucvL pensionable, and Ihr uar bonus 
<if 12s. per week and lhe allowance lor 
each child of 2v nd- a week would 
remain. 

There is ut ho a non-com rthuiors 
pension of Ids. per week, lor 
policemen's nidouv lhe pension to be 
luvahle in ihc ease ol mtmcc men ai 
the Iruni. 

The result is ihst the minimum 
wages penviunaMc ate C2 .K per week, 
which with lhe war bonus makes a 
total or £2 IS. as the minimum, with 
the children's allowance m addition. 

He tore the strike the minimum wage 
began at £1 Ills., which with a war 
bonus of I2v made a total ul C2 2s . 
with the children's allowance of 2s. bd. 
a week in addition. The men's claim 
was (at £1 per week increase of wages, 
pensionable, wiih a war"honus of 12' - 
percent- so that the wages would have 
been L2 MX., plus 6s. 3d., mini- 
mum total £2 16s. 3d. 

The novel feature of the 
Government's decision is the pen 
sion for widows, and it was 
received with enthusiasm by the 
men. The reinstatement of ex 
Police-Constable ThieL provincial 
organizer of the union and delegate 
to the London Trades Council 
who was dismissed for taking part 
in the management of an “unau 
t homed association." was agreed 
to by the Government on the 
condition that the strikers started 
work on Saturday night The other 
point in dispute was the recogni 
thin nf the union. It was stated at 
the Tower-hiU meeting that the 
Prime Minister gave the union 
recognition when he received the 
executive ~ 

SCENES IN WHITEHALL. 
The centre or interest on Satur- 
day was Whitehall between Scot 
land-yard, the headquarters nf the 
Metropolitan Police, on the one 
hand, and Dnwning-street. the 
residence of the Prune Minister, on 
the fother. In Whitehall many 
thousands tff constables both of the 
Metropolitan and City police 
forces, all in civilian dress, assem 
hied by noon to await the result of 
the deputation to Mr. Llovd 
George. Downing- street itself was 
i>acked. The tbrnng was swelled by 
crowds of the general public, who 
were deeply interested in this 
manifestation of the spirit of 
uuresi in a quarter where it was so 
unexjierled. It was not difficult to 
distinguish the strikers from the 
spectators. Many were distin 
giushed by wearing the favours of 
the Police Union, red and white 
ribbon, in their button-holes. But 
ajian from these the indefinable 
something which marks the police 
man. and from which not even the 
detect ire is always ahle to divest 
himself", mode the si rikers conspic- 
uous in the general mass. Their 
heerfuiness was remarkable, and 
Tor ]x>l icemen they were very 
talkative. They showed every dis- 
IMisitinn to discuss their action 
with civilians 

TOWER-HILL MEETING. 

AI the mass meeting on Tower- 
hiU Mr. DUNCAN, the president 
or the union, said that there was no 
body of men who had shown 
greater patience in pressing their 
claims forward than the men 
imposing the Union of Police and 
Prison Officials. They had almost 
got corns on their knees in begging 
and praying for a little attention, 
and he ventured to say that few 
people ever dreamt that the men 
who composed the City and Metro- 
politan Police Force and prison 
officials would ever have downed 
tools. He was pleased to say that 
the representatives of the union 
had been received by the Prime 
Minister. “Lesser folks." he re- 
marked with a smile, "would not 
look at us. but the higher up we got. 
the easier the job was. and I think 
we ought to say this, that the

Up, np and away 

From MrJoePhilp 
Sir. I was singularly interested to 
read (report. August 1 5) of Hasan 
Cclebi who shot himself bv rocket 
across the Bosphorus in I §33. 

As ihc first balloon pilot to cross 
this lovely stretch of water (April 
13. 1986). coincidentally also ai 
about l.OOOfL 1 have a strong 
fellow feeling for him. However. I 
think my landing on one of the old 
battlefields was almost certainly 
gentler than his! 

Yours-foilhfuliy.

OBITUARY 

LADY FISHER OF LAMBETH 

Active contribution to the counsels of the Church 

: ' nowiv-farmed British Count 


Lady Fisher of Lambeth, 
fwidow of Lord Fisher rtf 
! Lambeth, Archbishop of Cau- 
lertmry from 1945 to 1961, 
died on August 30at the age of 
96. She had a remarkably 
inierestingUfe which she lived 
to the ftilL With her Hvely and 
critical mind and strength of 
character she would have 
made her mark under any 
i circumstances. 

As it was, she became foe 
ideal consort of a very young 
headmaster of Repton School 
who was subsequently Bishop 
of Chester, then Bishop of 
London and, finally. Arch- 
bishop of Canterbury. 

In all these important roles 
Lady Fisher made a very 



the piano in spite of the din 


positive contribution, sup- and dusL As soon as tney 
porting hCT husband and tak- could, they created a hostel 


E^gfish-fipeakiag Union 
The Duke of Edinburgh, Presi- 
dent of the English-Speaking 
Union of foe Commonwealth, 
was in the chair at the opening 
dinner of the English-Speaking 
Union World Members’ Con- 


ing a leading part herself in 
church affairs m addition to 
bringing up a family of six 
sons. 

Rosamond Chevallier 
Forman was born at Repton 
on May 1 1, 1890, the seventh 
of a family of 12 children. Her 
grandfather, Dr S. A. Pears, 
had been headmaster of 
Repton School, and her father, 
tbe Rev A. F. E Forman, was a 
housemaster. In 1917, when 
training to become a mission- 
ary, she married Geoffrey 
fisher. 

Her husband became Bish- 
op of London at' the outbreak 
ofthe Second World War. Life 
was inevitably difficult, and 
Fulham Palace did not escape 
war damage. Fisher's appoint- 
ment to Canterbury involved 
taking over Lambeth Palace 
and the Old Palace at Canter- 
bury. Lambeth Palace had 
been badly bombed, and the 
family had to live in the 
basement until it was restored. 

They remained cheerful and 
undaunted, and Lady Fisher 
could often be heard playing 


where clergy from all over the 
world could stay. 

Fisher was the first arch- 
bishop to travel widely 
throughout the Anglican com- 
munion, often accompanied 
by his wife, Together, they 


promoted a relaxed family 
feeling wherever they went, a 
gift which was evident during 
the Lambeth Conferences of 
1 94S and 1 958. These were the 
last such conferences held 
under the hospitable roof of 
Lambeth Palace itself 

Although she could never be 
described as a feminist in the 
modem sense, maintai n ing 
i ha t a woman's first duty was 
to support her husband and be 
a homemaker, Lady fisher 
believed fervently in the con- 
tribution of women both in 
foe counsels ofthe church and 
in public life. 

Her fairness and shrewd- 
ness were much marked, and 
she was an excellent speaker. 
She served many organiza- 
tions with distinction, notably 
the Mothers' Union, of which 
she was president, and the 


newly-formed British Council 
of Churcbes, with its emerging 
overseas aid department, 
Christian Aid. 

When the archbishop re- 
tired in 1961, be and his wife, 
lived in tbe village of Trent in 
Dorset, where he acted as 
unpaid curate, and they both 
took an active part in v illage 
life 

The words ofthe Old Testa- 
ment prophet - “He that 
betieveth shall not make 
baste” - could be applied ’with 
singular aptness to Rosamond 
Fisher. She covered the maxi- 1 
mum of ground with foe 
minimum of fuss, moving 
from one place to another 
presiding, organizing, speak- 
ing and entertaining with a 
quiet certainty and convic- 
tion. her strength of character 
and calmness of bearing deny- 
ing from the same source. She 
led a devotional life which was 
as strong as it was 

unobtrusive. 

She loved the Bible and foe 
Book of Common Prayer. 
This love, coupled with her 
own private prayers, gave her 
the courage and the spiritual 
strength to carry her heavy 
responsibilities, which she did 
with increasing grace. It was a 
habit ofhers to spend a time of 
prayer before fulfilling a pub- 
lic engagement 

There was another, lighter 
side to her character a touch 
of vagueness, almost at times 
of elusivesness, which occa- 
sionally caused her almost to 


forget an engagement altogeth- 
er. She had a splendid sense of 


humour, and the stories she 
used to ten, often against 
herself, of this or that amusing 
incident in her public or 
domestic life, were accompa- 
nied by a most infectious 
laugh, and a gift for mimicry. 


REAR-ADMIRAL D. H. EVERETT 


Rear-Admiral D. H. Ever- 
ett, CB, CBE, DSO, who died 
on August 26 at the age of 86, 
was executive officer of the 
light cruiser, HMSAjax. at tbe 
Battle of the River Plate, 
during the course of which he 
took command of the ship 
after his captain had been 
injured by a shell splinter. 

The first British naval suc- 
cess ofthe Second World War, 
the Plate action heartened 
public opinion at home, ter- 
minating as it did the com- 
merce-raiding career of the 
German pocket-battleship, 
GrafSpee. 

Douglas Henry (Tol?y) Ev- 
erett was boro on June 16, 
1900, and educated at Oak- 
ham School. He entered the 
Navy as a cadet in HMS 
Conway in 1913 before going 
to Dartmouth. 

During the first World War 
be served as midshipman and 
sublieutenant of the battle- 
ships Zealandia and Resolu- 
tion and was appointed MBE 
in 19i9 for his organizational 
skills. Shortly afterwards, he 
was sent to South Wales where 
he served as an intelligence 
officer during a miners' strike. 

He went on to specialize in 
sig n als and over the next few 
years served in some of the 
best-known big ships of the 


At 6.08 a.m. on December 
13, 1939, Ajax, canring the 
force commander, Commo- 


day, the battleships Queen 
Elizabeth , Nelson and 


Elizabeth , Nelson and. 
War spite, and the ' 
battlecruiser Renown, where 
he was squadron signal officer 
and flag lieutenant-command- 
er. 

Having been promoted 
commander, he joined Ajax in 
1937 as executive officer, as 
such responsible to the cap- 
tain for the fighting organiza- 
tion of the ship. 

In the autumn of 1 939, with 
the attacks of German pocket- 
battleships on merchant ship-* 
ping causing serious concern 
to the Admiralty, raider hunt- 
ing groups were formed, and 
Ajax was assigned to Force G 
in the South Atlantic, joining , 
the heavy cruisers, Exeter and 
Cumberland, and the New 
Zealand light cruiser, AchiUes. 
Their task was to rack down 
Graf Spec which was wreaking 
havoc among merchant ship- 
ping in foe Atlantic and 
.Indian oceans. 


force commander, commo- 
dore Harwood, and steaming 
in company with Exeter and 
Achilles to foe east of the 
River Plate, sighted smoke to 
foe northwest; shortly after- 
wards Graf Spee was identi- 
fied and battle joined. 

Tbe superior weight of shell 
from the pocket-battleship's 
1 1-inch guns soon reduced the 
eight-inch gun Exeter to a 
virtual hulk, leaving 
Langsdorffi her captain, free 
to concentrate on the light 
cruisers whose six-inch guns 
were scarcely larger than his 
secondary armament. Ajax, 
spiritedly taking the fight to 
oraf Spee at ranges as dose as 
8,000 yards, had her two after 
gun turrets wrecked, and then 
sustained a hit which brought 
down her topmast, mid 
knocked her captain, CH.L 
Woodhouse, unconscious. 

Everett immediately took 
control of the ship and extri- 
cated her from a situation 
which was becoming perilous, 
by turning to the east under a 
smoke screen. At a safer range 
she then stalked the pocket 
battleship with Achilles, until 
Graf Spee took refuge in 
Montevideo harbour, where 
she was subsequently 
scuttled. 

In foe ettation for foe DSO 
which his skill and resolve 
earned him, Everett was par- 
ticularly commended for the 
way in which be bad, in the 
months prior to the battle, 
worked up the ship's company 
to a pilch which enabled them 
to stand the test of battle so 
well, against a dangerous and 
powerful enemy. He also had 
the unusual distinction of 
being promoted captain at sea 
for his role in the action. 

His war career continued a 
distinguished one. In 1942, be 
was involved in planning the 
invasion of Sidly as chiefstaff 
officer to Force V, and he was 
subsequently mentioned in 
despatches for his role in 
providing shore bombard- 
ments during the Sicily and 
Anzio landings. 

In 1944, he got his first 
command proper, that of the 
aircraft carrier. Arbiter, in the 


Far East, and he became 
Commodore-in-Charge, Hong 
Kong, in 1945. His services in 
this theatre were recognized 
with his appointment as CBE. 

Among postwar appoint- 
ments were command of the 
battleship Duke of York, and 
in 1949 he became the first 
Flag Officer Ground Training 
with responsibility for training 
all the ground personnel in 
naval aviation. He was Presi- 
dent of the Admiralty Inter- 
view Board from 1951 to 
1952, when he retired. 


Everett also received a 
number of foreign decora- 
tions, among them Officer of 
the Chilean Order of Merit for 
services he rendered in foe 
aftermath of tiie earthquake al 
Concepcion in 1939, while 
serving in Ajax. 


His wife, Margery, whom he 
married in J 93Z died in 1 981 
Three sons and a daughter 
survive him. . 


DR HARRY 
BENJAMIN 


Dr Harry Benjamin, an 
endocrinologist and pioneer 
in the surgical treatment of 
trans-sexuausm, died on Au- 
gust 24. He was 101. 

Boro in Berlin, he was 
educated at the university 
there, before emigrating to 
America in 1913. 


During the 1930s, be was 
mone the first to recognize 


among foe first to recognize 
that trans-sexualism - a condi- 
tion in which individuals, 
mainly men, feel that they are 
trapped inside a body of the 
“wrong” sex - had some basis 
in physiology and was not an 
out-and-ont psychiatric 
disorder. 


It was not a popular view 
and Benjamin, who also 
emphasised that trans- 
sexualism was different from 
homosexuality or transves- 
tism - phenomena with which 
it was often confused - was 
widely considered by his peers 
to be out of step with reality. 

He published, in 1966, The 
Trans-sexual Phenomenon, 


Benjamin is survived by tus 
wife, Greta, whom he married 
in 1925.

Tkt Krypton Factor (Granada) 
takes Its name from $n- 
perinan s native pfamet rather 
rnw from the "rare inert 
gaseous element" defined by 
ifes dictionary, and the contes- 
tants aspire to the graadUo- 
<PKnt title of UJL Soper- 
person, which is (I suppose) 
rare; dynamic and fairly 
subst antial. To tins end, they 
mot reverse eight-digit num- 
bers off tbe tops of their heads; 
sp$t the differences in two 
separate, takes of the 
filmed narrative; engage m 
something called the Flei- 
srtwnann (or possibly Flash- 
man) Flexibility Test; cover 
themselves in mod and glory 
« an army assault course; and 
line np for a session of rapid- 
fire general-knowledge quest- 
ions. 

The dffficslty and ingenuity 
of the tests have always distin- 
iaisbed The Krypton Factor

Summerfare in New York State: James R. Oestreich reports 

A comedy all too frivolous 


New Yorkers weary of the 
annual round of Mostly Mo- 
zan at Lincoln Center have 
increasingly begun to journey. 

to the State University 
of New York at Purchase, for 
the PepsiCo Summerfare.' 
Now seven years old. the 
festival continues to grow 
mon? adventurous, this year 
most notably in the theatrical ' 
realm. Musically, there was an 
air of anticlimax, which was 
hardly surprising after last 
season's bold simultaneous 
presentation of three Handel 
operas. This summer's fere 
was mostly Haydn, much of it 
unhackneyed; but ironically it 
is Mozart who lingers in tire 
memory. 

The lone opera production, 
Cosi Jan lutte. brought to- 
gether two key elements oflast 
year's Handctfcst — the Bos- 
ton Early Music Festival Or- 
chestra (Tam?) and the 
director Peter Sellars ( Giuiio 
Cesarc). This production 
(“based only in small port" on 
Sellars's 1984 mounting of 
Cosi at Castle Hill, Massachu- 
setts) launched Summerfare’s 
projected cycle of the major 
Mozart operas, all to be 
directed by Sellars - who, 
according to a recent surprise 
announcement by the Ken- 


nedy Center in Washington. 
DC, will be taking a year’s 
leave of absence from bis post 
as director of the American 
National Theater. 

Sellars, it will be recalled, 
likes to update the staging, 
down to the (readiest touch, 
and feirly revels in con- 
troversy. Here for a change, in 
an opera often treated as a 
light-hearted romp, it was the 
dead seriousness of his basic 
approach that drew the most 
comment. In his notes, he 
acknowledged the “rip-roaring v 

sure-fire comedy" of the first 
act, but described the second 
as “a dry-eyed, unsentimental 
meditation on perdition of 
almost unbearable precision". 
To this observer, however, the 
was not serious 


bad to have his tittle 
jokes, drawing upon the most 
jqune forms of American 
tde vision comedy. Thus, with 
the action set in a contem- 
porary diner, "Despina's", 
GuglieJmo and Fenando were 
presented as the "wQd and 
crazy guys" of the Saturday 
Might Live skit And, to con- 
clude Act L die Despina, Sue 
Ellen Kuzma, appeared as “Dr 
Ruth" (WestheunerX the ubi- 
quitous, diminutive, plain- 


spoken exponent of exu- 
berant, "good" sex, equipped 
with a DieHard energizer lo 
recharge the boys' batteries. 

Iconodasm, of course, has 
hs uses, and one admires 
Sellars’s enthusiasm in batting 
down operatic dichfa — to the 
extent that he can find some- 
thing creative to put hi their 
place. But such paltry jokes, 
juxtaposed with Mozart's ex- 
quisite musical humour, are 
surely not that This kind of 
camp comes perilously dose 
to the standard New York 

City Opera buriesquerie. (It 
must be admitted, however, 
that it brought down the house 
—just as it unfailingly does at 
City Opera.) 

Then, too, Sellars's ad- 
vanced ideas about staging, 
presumably calculated to fos- 
ter immediacy of response 
from a modem audience, sit 
oddly alongside a musical 

antiquarian igjt> tha t retains 

the foreign text and, in a 
departure for him, was here 
extended even to the use of 
period instruments. This, at 
least, was cause fin gratitude. 
At the penultimate perfor- 
mance, the Early Music band 
played as well as I have heard 
it since the sterling original 
Boston production of Teseo 


two years ago. And, given the 
size of the hall (670 seats) and 
the light voices Sellars prefers 
in his singer-actors, one had, 
perhaps for the first time on 
these shores, the sense of 
absolutely ideal scale for this 
music: every note registered, 
even when the director— as he 
is wont to do - found a way to 
muffle the voice. 

Aurally, therefore, the pct- 
fonnance was a deligbt-'Janice 
Felty made a wonderfully 
touching Dorabdla. but Susan 
Larson — as ever, an accom- 
plished actress as Fiordtiigi - 
seemed slightly off her consid- 
erable vocal fonn. Perhaps she 
and an ineffective Frank Kel- 
ley, the Ferrando. both suf- 
fered from the lowering of 
pitch required by that anti- 
quarianism. James Madda- 
tena, the Guglielmo, proved 
particularly strong and engag- 
ing; Sanford Sylvan, as Al- 
fonso (“a Vietnam vet who is 
having trouble hanging on"), 
was generally adequate; and 
Kuzma was always convinc- 
ing (even as the dread doctor). 

Sellars's musical collabo- 
rator and conductor, Craig 
Stevens, held things together 
nicely, though one could quib- 
ble about certain tempo 
chokes.

Topicality on many levels 


An Ideal Husband 

Citizens 1 , Glasgow 

There is a wicked delight to be 
had from seeing Wilde's caus- 
tic portrayal of 1890s social- 
ites after three weeks at the 
Edinburgh Festival — there are 
still those around who dress 
loudly and talk- more loudly 
about not very much, with one 
eye on the door.; 

But the contemporaneity of. 
An Ideal Husband strikes 
home on many. Ievels: the tale 
of a politician whose reputa- 
tion is threatened by scandal is 
not altogether unfamiliar ter- 
ritory, neither is the leaking of 
official documents, And it is in 
Wilde's balance between a 
more superficial coniafy of 
manner and his treatment of 
far deeper social concerns that 
lies his brilliance and the 
play's enduring relevance and 
fascination. Wilde here is both 
clever and wise, at his most 
generously 


cynical and yet _ 
compassionate about human 
failings. 

Philip Prowse's set - His 
beautiful, heavy and ornate - anti-hero is Lord Goring, an 
drenches the play in its period. ■ H “ l dandv t *- 


the beautifully constructed 
political dance as power 
within a social group changes 
hands and flaws emerge. The 
focus of our contempt is 
constantly transferred from 
Mrs Chevdey, the calculating 
manipulative society woman 

— played with superb self- 
command by Roberta Taylor 

— to Robert Chiltem, the 
politician she ret unis to black- 
mail with the threatened 
revelation that his exemplary: 
career is based on fraud. Mark 
Lewis pales from pained as- 
cetic to ' desperation as he 
walks a tightrope strung out 
between his blackmailer and 
his wife (Anne Lampton), 
whose insistence on his virtue 
becomes an even more potent 
form of blackmail. 

The moral games Wilde 
plays are subtie and serious, 
constantly inverting prin- 
ciples and appearances, mak- 
ing Shrewd observations about 
power and women in a society 
that afforded them little 
power, and repeatedly prick- 
ing bubbles of empty rhetoric 
and moral sanctimoniousness, 
mouthpiece and moral 


character. The sparring be- 
tween him and his cantan- 
kerous father (Robert David 
MacDonald) is timed with 
dexterity, and Prowse's pro- 
duction contains some sharp 
verbal ping-pong and some 
lovely small performances, 
not least by Jill Spurrier as 
Lady Markby, who gushes 
rapid nonsense into a wall of 
surprisingly inpenetrable 
prose around ber. 

Though slow to start, and 
sometimes stodgy, Prowse's 
splendid production gathers a 
beautiful sense of proportion, 
running a fine line between 
melodrama and wit in its 
campness and between senti- 
ment and feeling in its serious- 
ness. He gives the "happy 
ending" a sad ambiguity that 
stretches it beyond an appar- 
ently neatly concluded can- 
tionary tale.-

Art in Exile in Great 
Britain 1933-1945 
Camden Arts Centre 

Bigos: Artists of 
Polish Origin 
Brixton Art Gallery 

Ernst Dryden: 

Designer 
National Theatre 

During the last ten years or so the 
whole business of exile from Nazi 
Germany, and the mass exodus of 
artists mid intellectuals which fol- 
lowed Hitler's coming to power in 
1933, has been exciting a lot of 
interest in Germany iisdt There has 
also grown up a major academic 
industry in America devoted to 
chronicling and evaluating the exile 
contribution to American cultural 
life. In Britain we have lagged rather 
behind: indeed, up to very recently 
most of the studies devoted to exiles 
in Britain were concerned primarily 
with beating breasts over the enor- 
mity of our having interned "enemy 
aliens” and hardly anything has been 
done on the positive aspects of the 
situation. 

It therefore seemed ironic, but not 
wholly surprising, that, when a major 
exhibition on the subject of German 
exiles in Britain aqd their artistic 
contribution lo their temporary ref- 
uge or adopted homeland was finally 
staged, h should have been in Berlin 
at the beginning of the year, and at 
that time there were no plans to bring 
it to Britain. However, the Camden 
Arts Centre (aptly, considering the 
tendency of the exiles to congregate 
around Swiss Cottage) has now 
stepped in to import a somewhat 
truncated version of the show, under 
the title Art in Exfle in Great Britain 
1933-1945 (until October 5), and has 
augmented it with additional works 
still to hand in British collections. 
The result, inevitably, raises more 
questions than it answers. 

The first question is quite easily 
answered: who were the exile artists 
in Britain? We presumably remem- 
bered, even before the recent cen- 
tenary celebrations, that Kokoschka 
settled here. And there was Schwit- 
ters. of course, neglected in the Lake 


District during his later years but 
revived with great edat since his 
death in 1948. And there are other 
individual figures we have started to 
catch up with, through the piety of 
their families and the enthusiasm of 
their galleries: Martin Bloch, Arthur 
Segal and Jankel Adler as well as the 
unstoppable Richard Ziegler, still 
going strong at 95 (the show of his 
work at Leinster Fine Art. in- 
cidentally. has been extended until 
October 1). And there are those, like 
Fred Uhl man and Josef Herman, who 
became so much fixtures of the 
British art scene that we have hardly 
considered them as exiles at all. But 
this show reveals, or reminds us of, 
many more. 

It is curious to learn, for instance, 
quite bow many of our leading 
photographers in the Thirties and 
Forties were exiles, more or less 
disguised- Who would have thought 
it, for instance, of someone with such 
an impeccably English name as Edith 
Tudor-Hart — which proves to be the 
married name of Wolf Suschitzsky’s 
sistei? And who knew, or remem- 
bered, the German origins of John 
Gay, Felix Man, Tim Gidal or 
K-(Kurt) Hutton, all of whom are 
shown to advantage in this exhibition 
—as well as Bill Brandi, who is not in- 
cluded, probably because he falls 
slightly outside its terms of reference? 
There is a good case for considering 
the contribution of these photog- 



Isolation: detail from Woman with 
Jug by Albert Reass 


rapbers. and other related graphic 
artists like John Heartfield and 
Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, as more im- 
portant in changing British sensibil- 
ities than that of any of the grander 
painters and sculptors: certainly their 
work was largely instrumental in 
revolutionizing British photojour- 
nalism and all our received ideas 
about the necessary relationship of 
picture to print. 

We must also not forget the 
architects who stopped off here, at 
least briefly, in the Thirties: Gropius 
and Mendelsohn left evidence of their 
stay in London with neighbouring 
houses in Chelsea Church Street, and 
Breuer designed his famous reclining 
chair here, while others, like 
Gold finger, settled here for good. It is 
reasonable enough to say that apart 
from Kokoschka no absolutely front- 
rank painters came here, but there 
were interesting figures of the second 
rank, such as the Expressionist Lud- 
wig Mcidner (who eked a living, we 
are told, as caretaker in a London 
morgue, where he sketched the dead 
so that relatives could identify them); 
Peter (originally Laszlo) Peri, a 
sculptor/pamter who has figured 
recently in Camden shows devoted to 
Fifties realism and to the work of the 
Artists International Association; and 
Hans Feibusch the mural ist^ who 
recently had a retrospective in Frank- 
furt under the label “a Frankfurt 
artist", though by now be has spent 
by far the greater part of his long life 
in Britain. 

There are also some genuine 
discoveries to be made. The four 
paintings by Marie- Louise von 
Motesiczky immediately stand out 
and reinforce the golden opinions 
inspired by her recent show at the 
Goethe Institute (now in Cambridge). 
The isolated figure of Albert Reuss, 
who retired to Cornwall to paint, 
seems worth further exploration. 
Likewise it would be interesting to 
know more of the faintly surrealist 
Ernes! NeusrihuL Nor should we 
forget — who can, with the Michael 
Powell revival in full spate? — the 
brilliant work of Hein Heckroth as 
designer for stage and screen. It is a 
pity that the Camden show does not 
have space, as the Beilin show did, to 
go into the exile contribution to 
British cinema and broadcasting as 
welL But. even as it is. there are 
reverberations enough to keep us 
busy for years to come. 

Clearly the British tradition of 
hospitality to political exiles still 
persists, as we may judge from the 


show at the Brixton Art Gallery until 
the end of the week devoted to the 
group of artists of Polish origin calling 
itself Bigos. Reading the introduction 
to the catalogue one gels the im- 
pression of a group very much as the 
German emigres must have been, 
making manifestos, splitting and 
reuniting on points of principfe, like 
whether labelling themselves as "art- 
ist s of Polish origin" at all is 
reprehensibly retrospective and whe- 
ther there is any identifiably Polish 
element in their work at this late date. 
But even if the label has no artistic 
significance - in most cases I suspect 
that is so — it is certainly of 
documentary value, and as good an 
excuse as any for showing the 
attractive flower-pieces of Lydia Bau- 
man. the funny assemblage sculptures 
of Mietek Dymny, the powerful 
graphics of Simon Lewandowriti and 
the nicely obscure drawings and 
sculptures of Ondre Nowakowski. 
Not to mention the Twenty-four 
Masterpieces of Stefan Szczdkun, 
which are not his masterpieces but 
those of the amateur architects whose 
bizarre creations he photographs with 
a perfectly straight face. 

Finally an artist who seems to have 
been constantly in flight from himself 
as well as, possibly, political situa- 
tions which were unattractive to him. 
Ernst Dryden, whose work as a 
designer and illustrator is on show in 
the Lyttelton Foyer of the National 
Theatre until October 4, began as a 
successful poster designer in the 
1900s under his own name of 
Deuisch, changed it to Dryden after 
the First World War and took up 
fashion illustration for magazines 
such as Die Dame and illustration for 
other magazines and a wide variety of 
advertisers, and eventually ended up 
in Hollywood from 1933 onwards 
designing costumes for such films as 
Lost Horizon and The Garden of 
Allah — a varied life and talent, which 
could encompass the elegance of a 
Lepapc, the bounciness of a John 
Held Jr and the drollness of a Heath 
Robinson, while always remaining 
recognizably itself. And there is a very 
personal brand of sexiness for good 
measure: note the advertisement for 
Le Rond Point suspenders, which 
slyly does a little localized strip of an 
de^ntly. formally clad lady to reveal 
exactly how she holds her stockings 
up, and wonder at the er/r/-Viennese 
quality of this amazingly adaptable 
artist. What need of acclimatization, 
when he could cany his own little 
world with him anywhere? 


which only joints up its 
contemporary ironies all the 
more. Here the gilt-laden 
drawing room curtains bang 
heavy over guilt-laden pasts, 
and Wilde shifts us thiwgh 


ostensibly amoral dandy, be- 
hind whose affectation to, 
uselessness is a real and 
charitable tolerance of human 
beings — Harry Gibson excel- 
ling as an arrogant, brow- 
beaten. and totally endearing

itd^prepared per- 


After Simon Rattle's refresh- 
ingly unstuffy account of The 
Dream of Geroniius came this 
equally vivid performance of 
Mahler's Second Symphony. 
It had Hie same interpretative 
stamp: every expression mark 
that Mahler wrote (and quale a 
few he did not) projected with 
zest: the music almost hurled 
into tempo changes: no at- 
tempt made to refine away the 
raw edge of the fortissimos. 


Mahler's musical 
speaks more explicitly even 
than Elgar's of death, dread 
and ultimate glory: a conduc- 
tor must avoid exaggerating 
rhetoric which already toners 
on the brink of ironic self- 
parody. Such exaggerations 
did sometimes occur here: 
when ihe articulation of the 
opening siring theme was 
distorted, .for instance, or 
when every timpani entry was 
made to sound like the one 
o’clock gun from Edinburgh 
Castle. 

Distinguished contributions 
came from Dame Janet Baker 
and Felicity Lott, and the 
Edinburgh Festival Chorus 
must have scot its chorus- 
masicr John Currie off in great 
spirits to -his new job directing

rale. If the City of Bir- 
mingham Symphony Orch- 
estra occasionally sounded 
tired they had reason, for 


earlier they 
tmmacula _ 

formance of Berio's Smfonia. 

It was an ap propriate choice 
since it does (among many 
Otter things) “rework" the 
scherzo of Mahler's Second 
Symphony, with ' running' 
commentary courtesy of Sam- 
uel Beckett. Its frenetic zani- 
ness now seems quaint (very 
much New York area 1968), 
but the polished vocal work 
here by Electric Phoenix re- 
minded us how irreristible 
Berio's surface brilliance can 
be.

Promenade Concert 


BBCCO/Delacote 

Albert Hall/Radio 3 

When Ravel orchestrated his 
Vaises nobles el semimentales 
in 1912. fora ballet to his own 
scenario, he brought them 
closer to Chabrier than to the 
"imitation of Schubert" which 
was his first intention. How- 
ever. the subtleties that still 
remain in their bitonality, 
flexible pulse and displaced 
rhythmic syncopation were 
vividly pointed by Jacques 
Delacote in his Promenade 
Concert debuL with the BBC 
Concert Orchestra on Sunday. 

He had the support of 
sensitive keyboard playing 
from Anne Queflelec in seek- 
ing to redeem Debussy's early 
Fantasy for piano and or- 
chestra from the adverse ver- 
dicts of previous and even 
some recent history. While the 
writing is that of a composer 
still heavily indebted to the 
heritage of cTIndy and others, 
there are clear foretastes of the 
huer symphonic poems, and 
the nocturne-like central 
movement is poetic mood- 
music reminiscent of Delius, 
the best of the piano writing 
here beautifully phrased. 

The three musical picture- 
postcards of Ibert's Escales 
(Ports of Call) were re- 
produced with suitable pa- 
nache and engaging instru- 
mental colour, including a 
sultry oboe solo for the central 
"Tunis" section by a lady 


whose generously displayed 
sun-tan looked attractively all 
of a piece with the musical 
location. She and ter col- 
leagues on wind instruments 
enlivened much of the follow- 
ing La Boutique famasque, 
played in the full extent of 
Respighi's celebrated orch- 
estration of Rossini for 
Mass He’s comedy-ballet, and 
given a spirited forward mo- 
mentum by the conductor as 
well as pictorial relevance. 

By the nature of its rep- 
ertory the BBC Concert Or- 
chestra is required to be more 
versatile than many sym- 
phony orchestras, and they 
brought expressive character 
even to those linking passages 
which depend on the visual 
element on stage, though one 
percussion player compen- 
sated a little by doubtiully 
checking his watch as he 
gently chimed the requisite 
strokes of 10 o'clock on the 
tubular bell 20 minutes too 
soon.

Daniloff 

From Christopher Walker 
Moscow 

Attempts to secure the early 
release from KGB custody of 
Mr Nicholas Daniloft corres- 
pondent of the weekly maga- 
zine US News and World Rep- 
ort. intensified last night when 

the magazine’s chairman and 
editor arrived in Moscow to 
lobby on his behalf. 

Mr Daniloff aged 52, has 
been held in a military prison 
since bis arrest on Saturday 
after accepting a package from 
a Soviet teacher friend. 

Mr Mortimer Zuckerraan. 
the magazine's chairman, an- 
grily described the arrest as “a 
damned outrage". 

He is expected to seek 
meetings with senior figures 
including Mr Anatoly Dob- 
rynin. the former Ambassador 
to Washington and a leading 
adviser to Mr Mikhail Gorb- 
achov and Mr Eduard Shevar- 
dnadze, his Foreign Minister. 

There have been indications 
that Mr Daniloffs continued 
detention could sour the re- 
cent improvement in relations 
between the superpowers. 

Mr Zuckerman is accompa- 
nied by the magazine's editor, 
Mr David Gergen. Both plan 
to keep dose contact with the 
US Embassy in Moscow as 
they try to secure his freedom. 

US officials in Washington 
charge that the case is con- 
trived, and Mr Gergen said 
that unless the Soviet authori- 
ties agreed to his release “they 
will send a chilling message to 
the world about the new 
Gorbachov regime’*. 

Mr Danilofrs British wife, 
Ruth, maintains that his arrest 
is linked directly to the arrest 
in New York last week of a 
Soviet physidst charged with 
spying. Like Mr Daniloff he 
has no diplomatic immunity. 

Yesterday Mr Daniloff was 
allowed a visit by his son. 
Caleb, aged 16, who is on 
holiday here. 

After a second visit to her 
husband in 24 hours, Mrs 
Daniloff said she understood 
from the Soviet authorities 
that it would be known in 10 
days whether Mr Daniloff 
would be formally charged or 
released.

A thousand ways of saying ‘no’ to Nirex 



Letter from Bamenda 


Dirt track lifeline 
for Cameroon 


By Trod! McIntosh 

A peaceful blockade by more 
than a thousand farmers, 
schoolchildren, and residents 
(above) prevented two attempts 
by Nirex engineers to gain 
access to a proposed nuclear 
dumping site at Bradwell-on- 
Sea, Essex, yesterday. 

Protesters from anri-nudear 
action groups throughout Essex 
forced a small convoy, compris- 
ing a lorry and two smaller 
vehicles, to torn back on the 
only access road to the site near 
the Bradwell nuclear power 
station. 

ft was the first attempt by 
Nirex, the government unclear 
waste agency, to gain access to 
the site. 

The convoy, led by Mr Neil 
Trenton, a director of Sir Wil- 
liam Halcrow, consulting en- 
gineers, tried to get through the 


blockade at 11 am, and then 
a gain at 3.15 pm, bat failed. 

Protesters at three other pro- 
posed sites at Els tow, near 
Bedford, Killingholme in 
Humberside, and Fulbeck in 
Lincolnshire, have so far pre- 
vented Nirex engineers from 
starting work on the sites. 

During die second attempt to 
get through the blockade yes- 
terday, about 200 school- 
children sat down in the middle 
of the road with their anti- 
nuclear banners. 

Mr Les Pipe, chairman of the 
Essex Against Nuclear Damp- 
ing Action Group, said a 24- 
honr-a-day picket would operate 
outside the site from today. 

“The community resolve is 
very strong. We have groups 
from Tollesbnry, Tfllingham, 
Maldon, and as far as Basildon 
and Colchester,” Mr Pipe 
added. 


He said if Nirex resorted to 
W ringing a High Court injunc- 
tion this week, the four' main 
action groups would be 
prepared. 

“We have taken legal ad rice, 
and believe we can fight against 
an injunction. The people of 
Bradwell and throughout Essex 
will not allow any nuclear waste 
to be dumped in Bradwell or 
anywhere in Britain. 

“This area is staunchly 
Conservative, and the Govern- 
ment cannot ignore the public's 
anger.” 

Mr Tony Benn, the Labour 
MP, joined the blockade for a 
short time yesterday. 

The Rev Paul Booth, rector of 
St Thomas's Church, BradweO- 
on-Sea, said his congregation 
was “angry and afraid.” 

He said Brad well's 800 
population objected to being 


used as guinea pigs. A number 
of local people work at the 
Bradwell midear power station, 
which was built 25 years ago. 

“We have never had any 
animosity before towards the 
power station, . but . since 
Chernobyl, people are more 
aware and extremely worried,” 
Mr Booth said 
Mr Trenton told protesters 
that he hoped the confrontation 
would soon be resolved. 

“We are not actually building 
anything. It is purely investi- 
gative work,” he told them. He 
said Nirex contractors would try 
to get through the blockade 
today and tomorrow. “But after 
that, it is np to Nirex.” 

■ A Nirex spokesman said that 
the delays were costing time and 
money, and that it might have to 
recourse to other options.

The lifeline to survivors of 
the Cameroon disaster is 
signposted somewhat preten- 
tiously as the Ring Road. 

In reality, it is p° more 
than a narrow dirt track 
describing a 230-mile circle 
through a wild and romantic 
landscape of high volcanic 
plateaux near the borders 
with Nigeria. . 

In places it is simply a scar 
on the mountain, a hazard- 
ous scree of rocks and mud, 
impossible to all but powerful 
four-wheel drive vehicles 
during the tempestuous rainy 
season. 

It is up this busy trail that 
convoys of trucks have been 
churning for the past week 
with emergency relief sup- 
plies for entire communities 
made homeless by the pas- 
sage of lethal volcanic gasses. 

Urgent medical supplies 
were flown in by helicopters, 
which reached rural hospitals 
within 15 minutes of leaving 
Bamenda. the provincial cap- 
ital With skill and tuck, the 
land relief covered 95 miles 
to a distribution centre at 
Nkambe in a day. 

Despite the enormous 
difficulties, the Cameroo- 
nians have coped with the 
greatest catastrophe in their 
history with a blend of prag- 
matism, tribal solidarity and 
fatalism. 

Their management of the 
relief operation has im- 
pressed foreign missions, and 
their extended African family 
system encompassing neigh- 
bouring tribes has alleviated 
considerable suffering. 

Anxiety and despair are 
curiously absent. Instead, 
there is mute acceptance of 
disaster, ascribed by some of 
the older victims to divine 
retribution, and implicit faith 
in either God or President 
Paul Biya to put things right. 

They are also fortunate in 
having a relatively fertile 
land. The teeming market 
facilities strung out along the 
Ring Road are wefl stocked 


vegetables that cushion the 
effect of unforeseen calamity. 

“The word emergency is 
probably not appropriate to 
this situation," a British dip- 
lomat observed. “Nobody is 
actually going to go hungry.” 

The Ring Road is destined 


to become more worthy of its 
name from this year, when a 
British company starts work 
on a £7 million project to 
surface a 70-mi!e stretch from 
Bamenda. It is also planning 
to survey two further sections 
totalling 93 miles. 

Under presem circum- 
stances. however, the remote- 
ness of the disaster has posed 
difficulties for foreign corr- 
espondents. 

A Spanish television crew 
which gave The Times a lift 
from Wum. 50 miles off the 
Ring Road, through one of 
the stricken villages 25 miles 
further oo had a typically 
arduous experience. 

Weakened rather than 
fortified by a sparse dinner of 
rancid porcupine stew, they 
set off in darkness at 4 am. 
After a mechanical break- 
down and a back-breaking 
struggle to extricate their 
vehicle from a quagmire, they 
arrived in the deserted village 
of Nyos five hours later - to 
find their camera had been 
damaged by the rough ride. 

They repaired the damage, 
careered back down to the 
provincial capital, and were 
last seen frantically trying to 
delay the departure of an 
aircraft to fly their precious 
film to Madrid. 

An ITN crew persuaded a 
helicopter pilot on a relief 
mission to fly them out of 
Nyos with a generous dona- 
tion to the Save the Children 
Fund. Five miles down the 
road, an exasperated BBC 
unit still trying to reach the 
village was enlisting the aid of 
local villagers to pull their 
Land-Rover out of a 
mudhole. Apparently they 
still made the Nine o'Gock 
News. 

Bade in Bamenda limited 
and temperamental commu- 
nications with the outside 
world produced a curious 
religious revival among some 
correspondents. 

A Dutch radio reporter was 
seen devoutly crossing him- 
self in gratitude after two 


dialling produced a crackly 
line to The Hague. A German 
colleague spent almost as 
long mouthing prayers to a 
silent telex machine before it 
sprang to life.

HAT bid 

terms 

BET has published the 
document containing details 
of its increased offer of £1 14 
million for the HAT Group. 

Shareholders are being of- 
fered 73 BET shares for every 
200 HAT shares. There is a 
cash alternative of 135p 
share. 

The final day on- -which 
HAT can comment on current 
trading is this Friday, and 
HAT is expected to publish a 
comprehensive defence docu- 
ment by then. 

Mr Hugh Dundas, chair- 
man of BET, chalteng f* 
HAT* strategy for the future, 
pointing to HATs record and 
the comment made by its 
chairman, Mr David Telling, 
that the outlook fortius year 
remains difficult 

Mr Dundas also refutes tire 
accusation that BET is plan- 
ning to split up the business. 

He reiterates the “commer- 
cial logic** of the bid, and says 
that be expects the combined

reserves 
record 



By Graham Searjeant 
Financial Editor 

Japan** currency reserves 
rose by S2JJ8 bull cm to a 
record $4121 billion during 
August as the Japanese gov- 
ernment, worried at the effect 
on the economy of foe rapid 
pace of the yen's rise agamst 
foe dollar, intervened heavily 
in foe foreign exchange mar- 
kets to support foe dollar. 

August dollar - purchases 
raised Japan's reserves by 7i 
per cent from foe July figure, 
itself a record. .The reserves 
are now 45 per cent higher 
t han 12 months ago. 

The Bank of.Tokyo reacted 
strongly when the tfcrfin? of 
the dollar agamst the yen 
accelerated at the be ginning nf 
the month and tire dollar fell 
to Yen 152.8 on August 4. 

It intervened strongly from 
August 3 to August 9 and the 
central bank intervened di- 
rectly in the Tokyo market on 
August 8, buying dollars from 
the broker market for the first 
time for ten years. 

The Bank of Japan’s action 
was successful in stopping an 
uncontrolled run on the dol- 
lar, which has since stabilized 
above Yen 154. 



-The Japanese buying, of 
dollars also pereuaded foreign 
exchange speculators to switch 
their attention to foe dotlar- 
mark rale, which has been 
under p ress u re ever since: 
There has as yet been fittie 
evidence of heavy 
Bundesbank intervention. 

Japan Ires been 

further cat in its already 
interest . rates, which foe 
United States had hoped to 
force through the foreign ex- 
change markets, but ministers 
are extremely worried about 
foe cut in Japanese growth 
caused by the rise of foe yen.

-because of the impact of the 
yen' on export earnings. 

This has sharpened an in- 
tense debate within foe gov- 
ern ment over measures 
needed to stimulate foe econ- 
omy as foe US Administration 
has been urging. 

Mr Tetsuo Kondo, director- 
general of the EPA, has es- 
timated that a budgetary 
injection of Yen3,000 billion 
would be needed to restore 
growth to 4 percent The new 
cabinet is thought to favour 
increased capital spending, 
beginning this autumn. 

The finance ministry, how- 
ever, b stin pursuing its five- 
year programme to prune the 
budget. Departmental budget 
submissions are- thought to 
imply a 6.7 per cent rise in the 
total budget to Yen 57,700 
billion. That rise would be 
mostly accounted for by 
higher costs of servicing the 
national debt. 

Even so, the finance min-

aim of pruning the total to

£21 m boost for aid 
projects overseas 

By David Smith, Economics Correspondent 

The Government yesterday 
announced a 30 per cent 
increase in the Aid and Trade 
Provision element of Britain’s 
oveiseas aid programme. 

Funds available for ATP in 
the current year are to be 
increased by £21 million to 
£90 million, Mr Timothy 
Raison, Minister for Overseas 
Development, announced. 1 

The announcement follows 
the signing in Malaysia on 
Friday of .foe Overseas 
Development. . - • 

Administration's largest 1 ever 
ATP aid agreement. = 

Under foe agreement, foe 
Government b to provide a 
granlof almost £60 nuffion to 
help, foe financing of a £410 
million contract- awazded to 
Biwater, foe Surrey company, 
to provide piped drinking 
water to .rural areas erf 
Malaysia; 

An ODA spokeswoman 
said that the increase b to 
enable aid finance to be 
available on the Malaysian 
water supply project and on 
other ATP projects- planned 
for foe current year. 

No policy change is, how- 
ever, signalled by the increase 


in foci current year's ATP from 
£69 million to £90 milli on. 
The p rog ram me has been 
expanded in the exceptional 
circumstances of foe Malay- 
sian contract and wifl return 
to previous target totals of £76 
million in 1987-88 and £86 
million in 1988-89. - 

Last year, ODA officials 
said, there was a shortfall in 
spending- on the ATP pro- 
gramme, which ' provides 
giants, in association, with 
export -' credits !“ provide 
financial support for. British 
bids for foreign! project con- 
tracts. 

This yeafs increase,, there- 
fore, comes from within the 
aid programme: Last year’s 
ATP shortfall allowed some 
initial payments of voluntary 
contributions to multilateral 
organizations to be -made 
early. The resources thus freed 
for the ament year have been 
used to provide the £21 mil- 
lion boost for ATP. 

The . Malaysian project, 
which will take up more than 
half of the expanded ATP 
budget fob year, involves 
more than 170 separate water 
distribution schemes.

pany to make a $40 million 
(£26 million) acquisition in

The bank, which backed

attempt to block the deal said 
it knew of shareholders who

more than foe totals recorded 
at the meeting.

istrars, the Royal Bank of

that he was intimating any

Ship canal 
again 
rejects 
£37m offer 

By Judith Huntley 
Commensal Property 
Correspondent 

Manchester Ship Canal 
Company has again rejected 
Highams' £37 million take- 
over bid after a board meeting 
yesterday. 

The board remains unani- 
mous in its belief that 
Highams' cash offer of 623p 
per share substantially under- 
values MSCC*s developing as- 
set base. 

The potential plum within 
MSCC is the Barton Dock site, 
dose to Manchester city cen- 
tre. 

Both the canal company 
and Highams. foe private 
company of Mr John Whit- 
taker, chairman of Peel Hold- 
ings. the retail developer, want 
to develop the area with 
shopping. 

However. Manchester City 
Council, which has 1 1 of the 
21 scats on the MSCC board 
does not like the idea of a large 
retail development so close to 
its city centre. 

Mr Donald Redford, chair- 
man of MSCC. told 
shareholders yesterday foe 
price of the company's or- 
dinary and preference shares 
had remained above the 
Highams' offer price since 
MSCC posted its fust defence 
circular a month ago. 

Highams says its offer 
represents a large premium to 
MSCCs net asset value, put at 
4 1 6p per share. 

It b content to wait for foe 
further acceptimces it needs to 
gain a majority of the voting 
rights which are heavily 
weighted in favour of small 
shareholders. 

Highams has given under- 
takings to the Takeover Panel 
that it will break down its 
shareholding to give it major- 
ity voting rights. 

It says it could undertake 
the move at any time. 


with complexities in the light 
of Extel formally completing 
the purchase of Dealers' Di- 
gest. 

The votes tallied by 
Ansbacher comprised the 
shares owned by itself, Mr 
Maxwell and four institutions, 
one of which made itself 
known after foe bank's 
announcement, but did not 
include proxies submitted by 
Mr Maxwell's advisers. NM 
Rothschild, after he circulated 
Extel's shareholders wiih his 
views. 

These are thought to ac- 
count for another 50,000- 
60,000 votes and could have 
been the source of some 
confusion during the count as 
several shareholders sold their 
shares after mandating their 
proxies to Rothschild. 

• Mr Maxwell's stake in Extel 
has fallen from 29.99 per cent 
to about 25 per cent after he 
failed to lake up any of the 
new shares issued to pay for 
Dealers' Digest. About 70 per 
cent of Extel’s shareholders 
took up their entitlements. 


Ferruzzi pledges not to 
raise Berisford stake 

ByOmr City Staff 

Finaniaria, the could raise its investment in 


Ferrurai 
Italian - agribusiness conglom- 
erate, has given an undertak- 
ing to foe Government that it 
will not increase its stake m 
S&W Berisford beyond foe 
current 23.7 per cent while the 
Monopolies and Mergers Co- 
mmission b investigating its 
proposed bid for the commod- 
ity trading group. 

The undertaking, made -to 
Mr Paul Channon, foe Sec- 
retary of State for Trade and 
Industry, puts Ferruzzi on an 
equal footing with Tate & 
Lyle, which also has a bid for 
Berisford under • official 
scrutiny. . 

Tate agreed with the 
Department in July that it 


Berisfond from 9 to 232 per 
cent, although it has yet to do 
so. . 

Ferruzzi has also .matched 
another Tate pledge by agree- 
ing not- to exercise voting 
rights attaching to more than 
15 per cent of Berisfond shares 
during the time the commis- 
sion is at work. 

- Mr Channon has told foe 
commission to make hs report 
by November 18. Its inquiry 
will .focus chiefly oh the 
competitive effect of either 
Ferruzzi or Tate acquiring 
Berisford's British Sugar 
subsidiary which holds foe 
beet sugar monopoly in foe 
United Kingdom. 


West German paints 
acquisition by ICI 


By Out City Staff 


ICI has paid BASF an 
undisclosed amount for 
Inmont's paint-making West 
German subsidiary. 

BASF acquired Inmont in 
September last year on foe 
condition, imposed by the 
German federal cartel office, 
that it divest itself of Inmont's 
West German subsidiary. 

Inmont in. Germany em- 
ploys 330 people and last year 
had a turnover of about DM76 
million (£25 million). The 
vehicle refinish paints sector 
b by far the most significant of 
its interests. * 

The German refinish mar- 
ket at 30 million litres b foe 
largest in Europe and com- 


pares with 21 million litres in 
Britain. ICI says Inmont 
presents an opportunity to 
significantly expand its re- 
finish market base in Europe. 

The remaining Inmont 
business in Germany, al- 
though less significant in vol- 
ume terms, will largely 
complement ICTs existing 
businesses. 

The value of foe transaction 
is less than I per cent of the 
ICI group's assets. As well as 
the manufacturing base and 
distribution depots, ICI will 
have use of the brand names 
of Inmont in West Germany 
and Austria for a transitional 
period.

Mofoexcaitr yesterday denied 
that there was anything im- 
proper in actions taken by the 
Habitat side to postpone pay- 
ment of corporation tax by one 
of its subsidiaries. 

The technique employed by 
the subsidiary. Habitat -De- 
signs Ltd. has catapulted an 
unknown 42-year-ofd chemist,

which runs foe Habitat retail 
stores in fob country and has a 
turnover of £80 million a year, 
purchasing Mr Seaton’s 
chemist shop in Crewkerae, 
Somerset, in July 1984. 

Mr Seaton's business, by 
virtne of foe fact that it was in

had the benefit of being able to

pay its corporation tax bill 15 
months after the end of the tax 
year. 

Companies coming into 
existence after this date, have, 
according to foe provisions of 
section 244 of foe Income and 
Corporation Taxes Act 1970, 
to pay their corporation tax. 
bHI- within nine months of foe 
end of the tax year. 

The purchase of Mr Sea- 
ton’s company, in effect al- 
lowed Habitat to take 
advantage of hs later tax 
payment date and defer pay- 
ment of its tax for about six 
months ' 

This device provides Habi- 
tat with a considerable saving. 
Mr Jim Power, finance, direc- 
tor of Storehouse, said yes- 
terday: “There is an interest 
swing of around £200,000 for 
the delay.” 

He also admitted that an- 
other company in the Store- 
house Group, Mbfoercare -UK 
Ltd. Is bring foe same tech- 


nique to delay the date, its tax 
falls due. 

“We are totally within foe

Power said. 

“Theoretically it is a bit of 
an anomaly but it is there, and

Profits at 
Norsk 
Data up 
by 48% 


By Lawrence Lever 

Norsk Data, the Norwegian 
computer group listed on tfie 
London Stock Exchange, yes- 
, terday announced a 48 per 
cent increase in pretax profits 
for the six months ending 
June 30. 

The figures are up from 
111.] million Norwegian kro- 
- ner (£10 J22 million) to 
Nkr 164.8 million (£15.16 mil- 
lion) on the basis of an 
exchange rate of 10.87 kroner 
to the pound. 

• New orders for Norsk 
Data's business computers in 
the United Kingdom in- 
creased by more than 100 per 
cent in the first six months of 
the year. 

Mr Rolf Skar, president and 
chief executive, said that sales 
of fully-integrated production 
and editorial systems to re- 
gional newspapers and com- 
puter-aided design systems to 
the mechanical engineering 
industry had been particularly 
strong in the United 
Kingdom. 

Norsk Data had also 
achieved a high level of sales 
of information systems to 
United Kingdom government 
agencies. 

New orders worldwide, 
however, show only a 20 per 
cent increase, largely because 
of a flat performance in 
Norsk’s home market 

The company attributes this 
to exceptionally high growth 
in the past two years and a cut 
in demand sparked off by 
declining oil prices. 

Norsk’s operating revenues 
increased by 40 per cent to 
Nkrl.105 billion. 


Scotland aims for

From Aim Warden, Glasgow 


Scotland, Britain's second 
financial centre, sees the com- 
ing changes in the Gty as a 
catalyst to help it win a bigger 
slice of the international take, 
something it consider it is 
marked for by history. 

The Scottish Boor of the 
Stock Exchange, behind its 
saltire flag and gothic facade 
in the centre of Glasgow, 
handles 7 per cent of total 
Slock Exchange equity turn- 
over. and finance in Glasgow, 
Edinburgh and other Scottish 
cities provides about 80,000 
jobs. Scotland handles 33 per 
cent of the nation's invest- 
ment trusts- 

Now the Scots, who have 
had trading floors in various 
cities since 1844, and stock- 
brokers since 1830, have re- 
organized their financial 
community in ways thought to 
be the most varied in Britain. 

The Scottish Development 
Agency is exploring potential 
customers and markets, and 
there is pride that the speech 
announcing the restructuring 
of Britain's financial services 
sector, made by the Governor 
of the Bank of England, Mr 
Robin Leigh-Pemberton, in 
the spring of 1984, was deliv- 
ered in Edinburgh. 

The term “Big bang" is 
frowned on north of the 
border, however, as overstate- 
ment. Inventiveness in re-- 
arranging themselves has not 
tempted Scottish jobbers and 
brokers away from “ca’ing 
canny** — being shrewdly care- 


ful — about change, and 
sticking to the areas they know 
best 

Penney Easton, the Glasgow 
Stockbroker, has emphasized 
its tradition of advising pri- 
vate clients by hiving off its 
administrative function to a 
separate company: Broker 
Services, owned by Barclays 
Bank and NMW, the com- 
puter company, began operat- 
ing in Glasgow on August I. 

Another Glasgow stock- 
broker, Parsons and Co, is 
probably the biggest single 
member of a British network 
of provincial stockbrokers 
formed this year, which its 
managing director, Mr Ber- 
nard Solomons, is credited 

with conceiving. 

The group. Allied Provin- 
cial Securities, claims about 
100.000 clients mid has more 
than 25 offices all over Brit- 
ain. The newest opened this 
month at Peterborough, and 
more are planned. APS will 
offer clients the participating 
brokers’ research, plus the 
wider-reaching wisdom of 
James Capel, the London 
broker, which is a minority 
partner. 

Many Scottish companies, 
such as Penney Easton and 
Parsons, have guarded their 
independence, but even those 
in which control has gone 
elsewhere see the outside in- 
terest as acknowledgement of 
Scotland's strength.

COMMODITIES REVIEW 


Liffe and SE prepare for battle 


Futures and options mar- 
kets are food of considering 
themselves as the last bastions 
of free enterprise, where prices 
are determined street market- 
style by the supply and de- 
mand needs of equally well- 
informed participants. 

Adopting this stance also 
means that the markets at 
times have to submit to one of 
the harsher laws of free enter- 
prise — survival of the fittest 

Not in the sense that ex- 
changes swallow each other up 
willy-nilly, (although the Chi- 
cago Board of Trade took over 
the ailing Mid- America 
Commodity Exchange) biff 
that when two markets corn- 


centre. Despite the advent of 
the electronic village, different 
time zones and sources of 
capital still count 
So it was particularly note- 
worthy last week when the 
London International Finan- 


cial Futons Exchange (Liffe) 
announced that it planned to 


pete by offering similar or 
identical contracts, it is rare 


identical contracts, it is rare 
that both can prosper. 

Contract liquidity has 
sheep-like tendencies and, 
once business begins climbing 
at one exchange, it quickly 
tends to leave the other mar- 
ket, widening the gap between 
the rivals. 

The process is particularly 
noticeable when two markets 
compete in the same financial 


annotmeed that it planned to 
introduce options on its FT-SE 
100 index futures from the end 
of this month. 

Options on the FT-SE index 
are already traded on the 
Stock Exchange and, despite 
the technical problems inher- 
ent to all that market’s options 
contracts, have proved very 
successful as a means of 
hedging equity investments or 
taking a highly-geared ponton 
the trend of equities. 

Now Liffe is coming in to 
provide competition at what 
can only be described as an 
opportune time. Big Bang is 
not only increasing toe number 
of market makers who need to 
hedge, but it is breaking down 
the barriers between liffe and 
the Stock Exchange member- 
ship lists as brokers and 
jobbers join Liffe or are taken 


over by banks already there. 

The two contracts wO! have 
some differences, as Mr Mi- 
chael Jenkins, chief executive 
of liffe, posits out. litre's 
proposed contract is User 
Hmw that of the Stock Ex- 
change ami, he notes, is aimed 
more at the institution that 
wishes to hedge rather than 
tbe speculator. 

And, while the Stock Ex- 
change contract is based on 
the underlying index, toe Liffe 
version takes its cae from a 
futures contract or, as the 
Stock pyrhange described it, 
“an intervening .artiflcnl 
instrument." 

None die less, competition 
there will be, and m the end 
one exchange wiB be likely to 
suffer. The two markets al- 
ready fight head-t o-head on 
two currency option contracts, 
with Liffe doing better, bat the 
exchanges are obviously more 
evenly matched when it comes 
to the FT-SE. 

Liffe has its FT-SE Atones 
pit to generate volume while 
the Stock Exchange remains 
toe natural home for equity

Interim dividend 

The directors at Cathay Pacific Airways Limited have today declared an interim dividend 
for 1986 of 6 . 0 C per share. 

The interim dividend will be paid on 30th September 1986 to shareholders registered at 
the close of business on 26 lb September 1986: the share register will be closed from 
15th September 1986 to 26th September 1986. both dates inclusive. 

Prospects 

Profitability m the second half-year should c o nt in ue to be favourably influenced by low 
fuel prices with a consequent restraining effect on costs generally. However, the bottom of 
this particular market cycle may have been reached and there could be some upturn in fuel 
prices following the latest OPEC agreement on oil production. As regards traffic volumes, 
the cargo market remai ns st rong but passenger traffic in some areas of the Gompaay's opera- 
tion is a little weak and some dilution in the passenger yield is also expected. The recent 
devaluation of the Australian dollar has significantly reduced revenue from this important 
market. On balance, with the benefit of the good results of the first half-year, I expect that 
the Company’s profit for the whole of 1986 will be not less than HKS1.0 billion, and that a 
final dividend of at least 13-0® per share will be recommended. 

The full interim report will be sem to all shareholders on 8th September 1986.

The sound mangement prin- 
ciples planted at Acorn Com- 
puter after last year's 
problems have germinated 
and toe company is showing 
a healthy growth potential 

About 50,000 of Acorn’s 
mainstream products were 
sold in the first half of this 
year, generating an operating 
profit Two thirds of the units 
were in the BBC Master 
Computer range, launched, 
amid much acclaim, last 
January. 

The second half ought to 
show a substantial improve- 
ment. because of the impetus 
provided by yesterday’s 
launch of the BBC Master 
Compact. 

Acorn’s managing director, 
Brian Long, thinks that the 
Master Compact is a better 
buy than anything toe com- 
pany has made in the past. It 
gives Acorn the opportunity 
to move back into a more 
volume-orientated market, 
while keeping it within the 
broad confines of the special- 
ist educational market, in 
which the group is the 
acknowledged market leader. 

The initial surge in growth 
in' the educational market, 
whore A com enjoys 70 to 80 
per cent is probably over. But 
Acorn is directing its efforts 
in overseas markets, where 
educational products are as 
yet relatively untried. 

The Master Compact is 
thought to be the perfect 
product for this nascent mar- 
ket, because of its linguistic 
flexibility. Acorn is expecting 
to sell two thirds of its Master 
Compacts abroad. 

Olivetti is going to market 
the Master Compact under its 
own name in Italy. Original 
Equipment Manufacture 
(OEM) is expected to provide 
at least 50 per cent of future 
sales, with about 30 per cent 
from customers other than 
Olivetti. 


Acorn is now a much 
sounder business. It has tight- 
ened up its operation and 
oow looks well positioned for 
toe future. Olivetti has made 
it dear that it will retain a 
79.8 per cent shareholding 
unless Acorn needs to raise 
capitaL 

Ibis would be out of the 
question until the company 
was consistently trading 
profitably, which may not be 
until the middle of next year. 


United Spring to 
buy Turbo Tools 


United Spring & Steel is to 
acquire Turbo Tools (Hull) for 
an initial prioe of £1.5 million, 
supported by 2.450 million 
new shares. 

A further payment of op to 
£2.25 million in shares or cash 
may be made, depending on 
profits. 

The company is to make a 
one-for-five rights issue at 60p 
a share, comprising 1.46 mil- 
lion new shares, plus 1.25 
million of the shares issued to 
make the Turbo purchase. 
Alexanders Laing and 
Cruickshank is to underwrite 
the offer. 

The board forecasts that the 
profit before lax of toe en- 
larged group for toe year to 
September 30 will be about 


£1.4 million, of which £1 
million will be contributed by 
toe existing group. 

It expects the group's earn- 
ings per share after tax for the 
year to be about 5.47p, com- 
pared with 4.l8p fin- last year, 
adjusted for the induaon of 
the results of Turbo, an in- 
crease of 30 percent. 

A final dividend of Up is to , 
be recommended, making 2p 
for the year, an increase of 33 
per cent over last year. 

Turbo's business is 
designing a wide range of 
special machinery, mainly for 
the baking industry. In addi- 
tion, it sells food processing . 
equipment under agency I 
agreements. .1

It is not unreasonable to 

expect Acorn to . make

The shares rose 30 per ant 

yesterday in a narrow market 
and are selling on a prospec- 
tive price earnings ratio oT2D

enough at this stage. 


BET/HAT 


Documents are flying be- 
tween the advisers of BET 
and HAT Group BET’S £1 14 
million offer will be final 


unless a white knight gallops 

over toe horizon. H AT, in toe 

meantime, is busy preparing 
a defence document to be 
published by Friday, toe last 
day on which it can comment 
on current trading. 

A forecast of around £13 
million should be forthcom- 


ing whkfc the sceptics suspect 

wiu include pension write- 
backs and may change the 
basis on which profits on 
long-term contracts are 
phased. 

HAT has been unable to 
report results which prove 
that its fully-integrated, ser- 
vice-oriented building 
maintenance package works. 
There have been a tew span- 
ners in toe works, such as the 
Houston Property fiasco, but 
there is still something of a 
gap between the theory and 
toe practice. Ironically, the 
one point BET and HAT 
agree on is that there is 
considerable potential in the 
business. 

BET is paying between 13.5 
and 15 times earnings, 
. depending on the tax charge 
used. By stripping out the 
glass division and putting the 
darning division on a mul- 
tiple which reflects the price 
BET is paying for Brengreen, 
HAT could claim the exit p/e 
is less than 10_S times. 
Whether investors are pre- 
pared to back HAT'S ebul- 
lient chairman, David 
Telling, is the crucial factor. 
It looks as if it will be a dose 
run thing. 


ing to toe market Instead it 
has made fair progress in 
terms of profit growth and 
has diversified sensibly in an 
attempt to spread its interests 
away from toe competitive 
contract printing business. 

Yesterday's results for the 
year to May 31 showed pretax 
profit rising 35 per cent to 
£1.2 million from £896,000 l 
N early all of this came from 
organic growth § in the 
company's core businesses of 
priming a wide range of 
newspapers and magazines, 
fine an goods and paper 
mere hauling. 

This year Goodhead’s re- 
sults will have a different 
complexion. In May, it paid 
£3.25 million for 10 free 
newspaper titles, which, of 
course, it will also prim. The 
group already owns two 
frcesheets and has found that 
margin* are roughly double 
the 5 per cent which can be 
earned from printing. As a 
result, Goodhead should de- 
rive a quarter of its profits 
from publishing this year. 


Goodhead paid for toe new 
titles from short-term 
borrowings and shareholders 
are soon to be asked for some 
£3 million to £4 million in a 
convertible preference share 
rights issue to pay off the 
loans and provide some more 
working capital for possible 
further acquisitions. Mr 
Colin Rosser, the chairman, 
is giving himself a brief to 
look for ventures that do not 
stray too for from printing 
and publishing and hopefully 
provide work for another 
division, as the freesheets 
have done. 


Goodhead Print 


The company is chirpy 
about the way things have 
gone in the first three months 
of the current year and Mr 
Rosser is unusually confident 
in predicting that pretax prof- 
its growth will be higher than 
last year's 35 percent He also 
predicts a significant 
improvement in earnings per 
share, although by exactly 
how much win depend on the 
way toe rights issue is 
structured. 


Unlike many of its USM 
counterparts, Goodhead 
Print Group has neither hit 
the heights nor crashed 
through the floor since com- 


The shares, up 2p at 117p 
yesterday, stand on a current 
price-earnings multiple of 
1 1.5, which cannot be exces- 
sive if such growth prospects 
are realized.

Tiphook 
confirms 
£11. 6m 
cash call 

By Lawrence Lever 
Tiphook. the container and 
trailer leasing company, yes- 
terday announced a one-for- 
three rights issue to raise £ 1 1 .6 
million after expenses. 

Mr Robert Montague, 
chairman of the company, 
which has announced a 67 per 
cent increase in foil-year prof- 
its, said the proceeds wouldbe 
used “to develop and expand 
our operations and not to 
reduce the level of our 
borrowings." 

The money would bolster 
the company’s container and 
trailer fleet and fund develop- 
ment of the Tiphook Rail 
subsidiary; which aims to 
provide integrated road and 
rail transport facilities. 

Tiphook** gearing stands at 
around 440 per cent 
Mr Montague said that the 
company, which is restricted 
by its articles of association to 
a gearing level of 500 per cent, 
traditionally traded in the 350 
to 450 per cent range. He 
added:“We are quite comfort- 
able at this leveL” 

The rights issue involves 
the issue of nearly 5 million 
new shares at 250p, a discount 
of almost 20 per cent on the 
285p (Mice ofTip hook’s shares 
immediately before the 
announcement. 

The shares have fallen by 
23p in a strong market after a 
premature leak about the 
rights issue last week. 

Mr Montague said: “We are 
investigating the source of the 
leak. It was unfortunate, al- 
though the rights issue would 
have been round the 250p 
price anyway.” The leak had 
not come from the company. 

Tiphook, in the rights issue 
announcement, forecasts a 
full-year dividend of 4.30p 
(3.73p) for the year to April 
30,1987. ■

Sheraton takes 
. control - 
of Rickworth 

Sheraton Securities, the 
property company, has bought 
76.25 per cent of Rickworth 
Securities, a subsidiary of the 
Lesser Group, for an un- 
disclosed sum. 

Sheraton already had 23.75 
percent of Rickworth from its 
purchase of the Caversham 
Bridge Group in June this 
year. . 

Rickworth 's sole asset is the 
option to buy 104 acres ofland 
dose tq.the_,M4 motorway, 
near Reading, Berkshire. 

The site adjoins the pro- 
posed Axiom 4 Reading Busi- 
ness Park, a high-tech and 
industrial buildings develop- 
ment. Sheraton says it will 
develop its land with the 
adjoining owners. 


COMMENT 


Midland Bank lifts 
forecasting gloom 


The run of summer economic fore- 
casts has become p r og re ssi vely 
gloomy, though the CBI is not quite in 
the National Institute’s class. It 
therefore came almost more as a 
shock, than a relief when the Midland 
Bank put out a positively rosy set of 
projections over the weekend. 

The Midland’s economic adviser, 
Andrew Bain, forecasts a resurgence 
of growth to 3.2 per cent in 1987 from 
the generally expected 2 per cent this 
year. Growth will continue at 3 per 
centin 1988 and only tail off modestly 
to 2.4 per cent in 1989. 

Moreover, the Midland projects ' 
accelerating growth in productive 
investment from 2.3 percent ibis year 
to 4 per cent next and, after a slight 
lull, 5 per cent in 1989. Inflation, on 
the other hand, is projected to slow to 
2.8 per cent in 1987 and 22 per cent 
by 1 989 on present policies. 

To complete this decidedly sunnier 
view, the current balance of pay- 
ments, expected by other forecasters 
to plunge rapidly and progressively 
into the red, is seen in surplus next 
year and balance in 1988, recording a 
deficit only in 1989. 

So why has Professor Bain so 
stoutly resisted present fashionable 
gloom? The key is productivity and 
competitiveness. He does not believe 
that the global official figures offer a 
true picture of what is happening. 
They show virtually nil productivity 
growth in manufacturing and 1 per 


cent overalL allied to rapid rises in 
unit labour costs. 

Either output is • being 
undercounted — there was a big 
difference earlier this year between the 
expenditure and output measures of 
gross domestic product — or unit 
wages costs are not rising as fast as the 
earnings figures suggest. 

If they were. Professor Bain rea- 
sons, industry would be moaning 
much more than it actually is. In the 
latest Institute of Directors survey, for 
instance, respondents were gloomy 
about the economy but cheerful about 
their own companies. Perhaps mar- 
ginal cheap labour is not getting into 
the figures or changes in the structure 
of labour forces are not being fully 
allowed for. 

Productivity rises of 2 per cent 
overall (3.5 to 4 per cent in manufac- 
turing) would be no more than an 
ordinary rate in the years before 1973, 
when technical progress was not so 
rapid as today. If output is higher or 
cost rises less than official figures 
show, then many of the Midland's 
more optimistic forecasts fall into 
place. Industry will be keener to invest 
liquidity. The trade balance will be 
better (after the fall in sterling against 
the marie), allowing faster interest rate 
cuts and a continuation of low 
inflation. The pressure to raise wage 
rates will also be lower. 

Let us hope Professor Bain is right. 


The other sterling rate 


The pound’s downward adjustment 
against the mark is not a particularly 
attractive sight but, following the 
Bundesbank’s firm “nem” to lower 
interest rates last week, hardly a 
surprising one. Yesterday it lurched to 
within 1.5 pfennigs of foe three mark 
level and docked up another new 
closing low. 

The sharp fall against foe marie — a 
little over a year ago sterling was 
above DM4 — has, for once, made the 
Treasury thankful that foe man in foe 
street, reputedly, only takes notice of 
foe pound/dollar rate. But it has also 
raised foe question of whether the 
pound has now dropped too far? 

On this question, economists are 
not as helpful as they might be. The 
traditional method of calculating long 
term equilibria for exchange rates is 
that of purchasing power parity. The 
relative inflation rates of two coun- 
tries determine foe . “correct” ex- 
change rate. 

According to calculations by foe 
American Express Bank, and taking 
1980 as a base year, foe pound’s 
purchasing power parity against foe 
mark is DM2.65, slightly more than 
10 per cent below present levels. But 


Goldman Sachs in London, while 
stressing that purchasing power parity 
is of extremely limited value in 
currency forecasting, comes up with 
very different results on this basis. 

On its assessment, foe correct value 
for the pound/maric exchange rate is 
DM3.84 and Britain's manufacturers 
should be seeing foe Germans off in 
international markets. The Goldman 
Sachs figure is derived from actual 
price data in various countries, col- 
lected by foe Organization for Eco- 
nomic Co-operation and 
Development in 1980, and updated. 

The “right” exchange rate is that 
which produces external equilibrium. 
Calculations which attempt to assess 
what this is, just produced by Cur- 
rency Research Ltd in London, sug- 
gest a fundamental value of around 
DM3.07 for foe steriing/mark rate. 
Given that something special is 
needed from manufacturing to make 
up the oil shortfall, Michael Nisbet, 
Currency Research’s director, argues 
that there is a case for letting the 
pound run down to well below its 
equilibrium level. Certainly, psycho- 
logical* barrier or not, a fall in foe 
pound below three marks might not 
be a cause of unmixed regret.

This little 
piggyfe going 

to market 



Datft be the one who stays at home. 


Ihe TSB was nevet m fact, a piggy bank. 

But once upon a time it was a clergyman's three- 
lock strong-box. In Dumfriesshire in 1810. 

Since then, ife grown into a major banking and 
financial services group with neatiy 1600 branches all 
over Great Britain. (A little cjf the group's anatomy is 
outlined above.) 

TSB shares are now being offered for sale to the 
public. The proceeds will help the TSB CXoup to 
strengthen and deretop its services sfifl farther. 

We hope you'll consider the offer most carefully. 

Your minimum investment win be about £400 
(unless you're a TSB bank customer who’s registered' 
priedty). Tour investment will be payable in two 
instalments: about half now and the balance in about 
\9. rn Dpthfi * time. 

Be sure to have your money ready because you'll 
only have 10 days to apply: from September 15th until 
not one second later than 10am an September 24th. 

Tb reserve a prospectus and application form 


(without obligation, of course) send in the

micro based on an 
advanced chip that IBM is not 
expected to move to until 
1987. Intel’s 80386 chip will 
allow faster operating and. 
when a new version of the 
PC's operating system, 

DOS 5.0 becomes available, 
will also remove the current 
limit of 640k of memory for 

machines running the 
current version. DOS 3.2. The . 
increased memory available 
will be useful for multi-tasking, 
the ability to run several 
software packages at once. It 
will be particularly useful in 
areas such as financial 
systems. On Thursdaythe 
British company TFB-Hair wffl 
launch a multiuser system 
using the new chip.

chemical group BASF has

formed, would immediately

leading sellers of computer

Translations: No problemski, mon ami 


By Christine Barbin 


Stephen Johnson 


Ever since computers came on 
the market, attempts have 
been made to use them to 
translate texts. But the 
ambiguities and oddities of 
human language makes direct 
translation difficult and none 
of the various artificial lan- 
guages invented as intermedi- 
aries has ever proved 
completely adequate. 

Millions of pounds have 
been invested in studies with- 
out any very convincing re- 
sult In 1966 the US Academy 
of Sciences declared that auto- 
matic translation was highly 
problematical because 
computers were incapable of 
discerning meanings. 

In recent years, progress in 
work on artificial intelligence 
has revived interest and sev- 
eral translation models are 
operational. One such is 
Ariane 78, being developed by 
the Automatic Translation 
Group in Grenoble, France. It 
uses an artificial intermediate 
or "bridge” language, for 
translation from Russian to 
French. 

Other programs, such as 
Logos. German into English, 
employ similar methods. 
Now, going a step further, 
Bolivian engineer Ivan de 
Rojas believes be has discov- 
ered that a living language, 
Aymara, can play the same 
intermediary role. ' 

Its grammatical structure is 
so regular, be says, and highly 



developed that it is capable of 
containing the grammars of 
other languages as subsets. 
This mates it particularly 
suitable as a tool for multi- 
lingual translations. 

Aymara. which is spoken by. 
some two and a half million 
people mainly concentrated in 
Bolivia, Asti and northern 
Chile, is estimated to be 
between 3,000 and 5,000 yearn 
old. 

Although it has suffered 
incursions from both Que- 
chua, a language brought to 
the region by the Incas, and 
more especially Spanish since 
the colonial period, Aymara 
has nonetheless survived to 


such an extent that it is used 
today • for many radio pro- 
grammes in Boh via. 

It was, however, a marginal 
lan g ua ge limited to rural 
populations from the High 
Andean plateau, until Guz- 
man de Rojas began his 
intensive study. . 

By manipulating the lan- 
guage; in which terms and 
expressions are formed by the 
addition of affixes to root- 
words, Guzman de Rojas 
discovered its algorithmic 
structure for the translation of 
several, if not all, Indo-Euro- 
pean languages. 

The project appears suf- 
ficiently promising that it has

and from Unesco through 
Rosilac, its regional office for 
science an technology in Latin 
America and the Caribbean. 

“This extraordinary lan- 
guage is so regularly struc- 
tured that it could have been 
invented by engineers,'’ said 
Juan Anselmi of Rostlac. 

“This means it can be 
broken down into algebraic 
equations which are then used 
as a bridge language, allowing 
for translation at a rate of

fastest computer translations 
so far developed attain a 


maximum 8,000 words per

late from and into English, 
Spanish. German and French. 

“The great advantage of 
using a bridge language in 
automatic translation, M sakh 
Mr Anselmi. “is economy.! 
Since languages contain sty 
many grammatical rules and! 
particularities, all the possibfei 
combinations of these panics^ 
lars must be taken into ae-J 
count when one is attempting? 
to translate from one language! 
to another.” *' r 

Professional translators 
need not, however, be unduly? 
alarmed that the system wilJJ 
replace them. In ihiy experi-c 
ment in language engineerings

“The automatic translator!, 
will always be a subordinate; a: 
machine present only as a took

productivity, “said Guzman* 
de Rojas. ? ; 

The rapid development <of 
automatic translation systems, 
seems to indicate that human?

US tax changes could' 
hurt micro companies 


From Geof Wheelwright in San Francisco 


The current tax revision in the 
United States could drive 
high-technology investment 
dollars out of America .and 
into British and European 
companies. 

New proposals agreed by 
the US Congress in August 
will cut personal taxes in low 
and middie-income wage 
earners and eliminate the 
many corporate tax opportu- 
nities. by which some big 
companies pay little or no tax 
in recent yean. 

It could spell trouble for the 
beleaguered American micro- 
computer business. One of the 
greatest beneficiaries of. such 
corporate, breaks have been 
new hardware and software 
microcomputer companies, 
many of which could have not 
survived the (ax burden that 
would have normally fallen on 
them without the special 
allowances. 

According to the 5au Jose 
Mercury News, a paper whose 
readership includes a good 
chunk of Silicon Valley res- 
idents, the tax proposals are 
being dubbed “another 
Chernobyl” by some members 
of the industry. It quotes one 
spokesman from the large 
micro p rocessor manufacturer 
Intel as saying: “Our business 
— capital intensive, with mar 
jor investments in plant and 
equipment — will be a real 
victim of the lax bill.” 

Given the recent changes in 
the British tax system, this 
country may well get a good 
deal more attention from US 


technology investors, which 
have until now spent a good 
deal of their time luring 
around Silicon Valfay audits 
counterparts in Boston, New 
York and the South-West.*. 

Though US investment irf 
the UK high-technology busi- 
ness has never boomed, there 
have been a number of areas -* 
particularly those relating to 
software design — where the 
UK has a reputation? for 
innovation and quality. ; 

There is, of course, tbe other 
possibility that the US tax cuts 
may turn investors away from 
PC technology altogether — 
and make things even worse 
for the industry on both sides 
of the Atlantic. 

More than one . venture 
capitalist was quoted in the 
US as saying the industry was 
in trouble. John Doerr, a 
partner hi a Californian ven- 
ture Capital firm, said: “This is 
is a sorry day for venture 
capital and high technology, in 
effect, a-40 per cent increase in 
tbe taxes 'on capital 
formation.” 

If business is hurt by the tax 
changes, it will be hard to 
distinguish those problems 
from those which already face 
an industry suffering from 
over-supply and a pace of 
change that mates new prod- 
ucts obselete almost from the 
day they are launched. 

Losing the ability to declare 
against taxes some of the 
many losses those problems 
create cannot, help.

starting with a now unbelievably

" A momtar and several picture- 
based programs called Gem from the 
American Digital Research company 
will be induded along with a mouse— 
the hand-hdd device which moves a 
pointer ori the screen- when it is rolled 
around a dedetop. Unlike the PCW, a 
printer will not be included, though 
Amstrad may provide one as a £150 
extra, '• 

The baric PC wftl be priced at 
around £450 with more expensive 
versions including a second disc drive 
and colour, rrther than Mack and 
white monitor. A version with a hard" 


disc for nnderfl ,000 will be sold at a 
later date. 

To some extent Amstrad's thunder 
has already been stolen by the advent 
of other dwap dones of the IBM PC 
imported from the. Far East, but 
dealers selfirig unknown brand names 
not suprisingly foce suspicion from 
cuawners about, the. quality and 
reliability of such machines. Buying a 
wdi known brandof compatible sfin 
costs well above what Mr Sugar win 
be charging and by patting a company 
logo op the machine Anrnrad hopes 
to reassure the many customers 

nriwiBing to risk the unheard of 

It is still doubtful, however, 
whether an Amstrad logo will be 
enough to crack the office and 
corporate customers for PCs. Jim 
Anderson, an analyst with stock- 
brokers Wood Mackenzie, believes 
the Amstrad will sell well to. what he 
describes as the take-home corporate 
market. “An executive with an 
established brand of personal com- 
pater on the desk at the office can 
now work at home on a cheap 
Amstrad version,'’ be said, predicting 
sales of around 200,000 in the first rix 
months. “Bui if Alan Sugar does 
manage to crack the corporate market 
as well the machine will be an 
astounding success.' 1 

As well as affluent home users with 
a requirement fora computer that can 
handle more than the odd few 
computer- games the PC wiD also he 
aimed at small and medium-s ized 
bus in esses that have so for resisted 
computers. With the added cost of a 
primer it will still be competitive in 
price to an electric typewriter and do 
all the things personal computers are 
supposed to as weB. 

IBM's response is cheap clones has 
so for been limited to modest price 
cuts — its PCs still average twice the 
oast of the cheaper clones. Specula- 
tion on IBM's next move ranges from 
the company producing a S700 PC 
aimed at schools and “office” 
computing , at home to producing a 
new generation of the PC with 
proprietary drips- that wiD do more - 
than the current operating system the 
clones are based on. Copying IBM 
would then be a for more complex 
task. 

. Amstrad itself is. unlikely ro dent 
IBM's sales to large companies that 
often require the more sophisticated 
personal computers such as the XT 
and AT " and value highly IBM's 
reputation for quality and after-sales 
service despite a dear price premium. 
Several well known manufacturers, 
however, new produce clones of 
IBM's more advanced PCs.

Mr Sugar is dearly in the business

Less thankful will be the beteagured

prompted to remark over cheap PCs 
that' “If it takes longer than ten 
minutes to sen a machine the profit is 
so slim its just not worth it.”

customers in. But it should take very 
little sales skill to persuade most 
customers that their needs could be 
better met by a larger or more 
expandable machine. And that will 
probably be one that the computer 
dealer can buy at decent margins and. 
in sensible volumes,” Let the buyer 
beware; 

Business computers are not Mr 
Sugar’s only concern at the moment. 
Amstrad is also about to launch a new 
£150 version of the Spectrum with a 
built-in cassette recorder — it took

announced it is a member of one of

From J^ohn Tagtiabne

As European governments 
scramble to modernize their 
telephone networks, industry 
deregulation is openixv the 
doors wide to^U .oomexs. 

; Across Europe,- competitive 
bidding is replacing the afl- 
sjoweml national monopo- 
lies- Indeed Europe has seen 
dear signs that, business is .all 
too ready to -go wherever 
better products or services 
exist 

. -West German- officials, for 


Phone shake-up hits Europe 


example, are voiriiu growing 
concern over a shift in bank 
data centers from Frankfurt fo 
London because of- better 
service arid lower costs; Arid 
the Belgian government re- 
cently voted telephone rate 
cuts to stop, an exodus of 
business from Brussels. - - 
Britain led . the shake-up, 
with its sale toi»ivatemvev 
tors, staffing in 1 981, .of more 
than half of the government's 


stake in British Telecom. Italy 
has sold 30 percent of the 
major network operator, 
Sodeta Italiana parEsercfario 
Telefonico, to- private inves- 
tors, and the Netherlands is 
considering similar steps. 

; '• Other countries are moving 
■more slowly, but in West 
.Gennaoy, for example, the 
postal minister has named a 
committee to review the 
powerful Bnndespost' s role in 


telecommunications. As the 
market chaises, so too is the 
industry lineup. 

Eight manufacturers now 
dominate Europe. But experts 
say the hifducost of developing 
new technology — the cost of a 
new generation of switching 
technology is estimated at up 
to £600 -million — will weed 
some out. Some realignment 
has already occurred. AT«£T 
startled -the European market 


two years ago when it linked 
up with Philips. The idea was 
to mesh AT&T's advanced 
technology with Philips's 
international sales network, 
and to enable both companies 
to share the costs of develop- 
ing digital switching systems. | 

By any standard, the 
states are immense. Most 
European countries, like the 
United States, are sinking 
trillions of dollars into up- 
dating their telephone sys- 
tems. (UPI) - I 


A new acronym has started to 
appear in the technical com- 
puter journals. It is being 
talked about, by those in the 
know, as the start of a revota- 
tionary outlook on computer 
deagn. The acronym is RISC 
and it stands for Reduced 
Instruction Set Computer. 

Why should a RISC com- 
puter be so revolutionary? The 
answer is that it is simpler and 
cheaper to mate and poten- 
tially far foster and more 
powerful. For programmers 
its importance is that ii trans- 
fers the design complexity 
away from hardware design 
and on to the software. 

By reducing to the barest 


mauds the processor win ac- 
cept, and retaining only those 
necessary to perform the com- 
puter processing function, the 
designers of the processor chip 
can cut out a considerable part 
of the processor circuity. 

This has two results — the 
chip can be smaller and 
therefore much cheaper and, 
because it is smaller, it can run 
foster without needing to use 
state-of-the-art technology. 

This concept of processor 
design has allowed engineers 
to sidestep the enormous 
problems associated with the 
powerful 32-bit and upward 
microprocessors that use con- 
ventional Von Neumann 
architecture. 

Fewer instructions mean 
that the software for such 
processors is long. This is not 
a significant problem since 
more than 95 per cent of most 
programs consists of these 
basic instructions. In most 
applications a RISC processor 
can therefore run several 
times faster than a con- 
ventional processor. 

For this reason the technol- 
ogy should be rapidly accepted 
by users of personal comput- 
ers — • for example, engineers 
who: have very processor- 
intensive applications. 

The necessity of relying mi 
software to do some of the 
more complex functions nor- 
mally done by hardware could 
he the source of future prob- 
lems for the approach. Theo- 
retically, computers based on 
RISC should have only a 
small increase in program- 
ming code over the more 
standard processors, but poor 
software design could greatly 
increase this extra overhead 
and thereby reduce the 
efficiency. 

Acorn is well known to 
most people as the manufac- 
turer of the BBC computer. 
But ft is little known as the 
developer of the ARM — 
Acorn RISC Machine. It has 
developed and produced in 18 
months a powerful 32-bit 
microprocessor. Running Ba- 
ric, the processor can work at 
speeds almost 10 times faster 
than the IBM PC 

Because the chip is small 
and uses established technol- 
ogy, Acorn hopes to produce it 


for onequarter of the price of 
other 32-bit microprocessors 
and is planning to use it in & 
new' generation of cheap but 
powerful personal computers, 

Britain is holding its own in 
tte design of RISC processors, 
with three fatty-developed sys- 
tems. They are the Acorn 
ARM, the Inmos Transputer 
- a RISC machine with a 
sophisticated architecture — 
and a 32-bit RISC processor, 
the Viper, developed by the 
Royal Signals and Radar 
Establishment at Malvern for 
military use. 

But this may soon change. 
IBM has developed a RISC 

nnwtmr tn niit m m rttnaft rtf 


personal computers, the IBM 
RT series. 

The IBM development ap- 
pears to have been prompted 
by companies such as Acorn 
and Inmos — ironically, since 
the RISC concept was first 
proposed by researchers at 
IBM in the early 1970s. 

The big market for RISC- 
based personal computers 
comes from people who need 
high-quality real-time graph- 
ics or powerful and fast num- 
ber-crunching machines. In 
this group are engineers, 

Demand lies with 
the high-quality 
graphics market 

geologists, mathematicians, 
and economists — many of 
whom need machines for 
complex modelling. 

The market-research firm 
Dai&quest has estimated in a 
recent report that there are 
more than three million 
potential users for RISC 
computers in the US alone. If 
this is true, the technology can 
gjve manufacturers a substan- 
tial new market. 

However, it could be that 
designing new RISC-based 
-computers is not the best or 
quickest way into this new 
market Inmos is approaching 
the problem in a different way. 
At a cost of between £10,000 
and £1 5,000, the IBM PC can 
be upgraded to give a machine 
with a processing power of 50 
million instructions a second, 
which outperforms many 
mainframe computers.

COMPUTER HORJZONS/3 


IJkilT 


Men of the world with 
the skills to match 


The computer industry is 
global and so is its labour 
market. A world shortage of 
experienced da la-processing 
staff makes it easy (o drive a 
career forward across frontiers 
and continents. 

From America to Western 
Europe, and from Arabia to 
Australia. British expertise is 
highly valued For anyone 
with a computer science de- 
gree. or five or more years’ 
experience, there is likdy to be 
a slot on offer somewhere. 

Overseas recruitment has 
seldom been higher, with only 
the Middle East showing any 
let-up in demand. 

So while there is plenty of 
breast-beating about the state 
of the British computer in- 
dustry there is little doubt 
that, individually, our an- 


SCENE 


By Edward Fennell 

afysts and programmers are 
well ahead of most of their 
overseas counterparts. 

“Our clients in America are 
always very pleased with the 
British computer experts we 
recruit for them.” says Jenny 
Lane, of the Computer People 
Group. “We find that because 
of their education and experi- 
ence the British always im- 
press their American 
employers.” 

In Europe, too. the British 
are well regarded “The qual- 
ity of British computer staff is 
very high." says Mark Clif- 
ford of 1A Recruitment “and 
certainly tends to be ahead of. 
say, those in Holland and 
Belgium. Only perhaps in 
Germany are the skills of a 
simitar standard The result is 
that we have no difficulty in 
placing British computing 
staff into overseas jobs.” 

What firms look for fust is 
the applicant's technical 
expertise, so the absence of 
linguistic skills among British 
computing staff is seldom a 
barrier. 

Many multinationals in 
northern Europe either have 



Mark Clifford: ‘Quality 1 

English as the company lan- 
guage or are involved in 
producing software for the 
English-speaking market, so 
manuals and training packs 
are written in English. 

Even so. the opportunities 
would be even greater if more 

Britons could speak French or 
Dutch. “The prospects within 
the EEC are exiremely good 
and so is the reputation of our 
experts. The only thing bold- 
ing them back is their inability 
to speak the language,” says 
Mr Clifford 

In America, of course, no 
such problems arise, although 
would-be emigrants have last- 
minute anxieties about the 
cultural shock that awaits 
them. To make a success of an 
overseas career move, com- 
puter professionals need to be 
highly adaptable. 

Because such people are 
usually going to a responsible 
and well-paid job they will Be 
expected to produce results 
quickly. The technical aspects 
of the work will probably 


present lew problems, but 
adapting to a different ethos 
and attitude may be more 
challenging. 

Even on the financial front 
the large salaries on offer may 
not go as far as you think if 
your office is in Manhattan 
and you need to find a flat in 
New York. 

Maybe it is the pace of life in 
America which results in the 
upper-age bracket for jobs 
there being around 35 while in 
Europe there is no comparable 
age barrier. “Companies on 
the Continent are buying your 
expertise and if you’re in your 
forties, it doesn’t matter ” says 
Mr Gifford 

Probably one of the best 
ways to make the move 
overseas is through contract 
work. It gives the chance, over 
a year or two, to taste the 
experience, and establish con- 
tacts while benefiting from die 
support given by an agency. 

Contract work in the United 
States is often paid at rales 
equal to the full-tune salaries 
of the locals. While this is not 
as much as an American on 
contract would earn, it makes 
it worthwhile for the company 
and avoids the situation com- 
mon in the Middle East, where 
different nationalities doing 
identical jobs can be paid 
vastly differing salaries as they 
are paid at a level based on 
salaries in their home 
countries. 

One reassuring feature 
about this new bam drain is 
that it is not permanent 
Although many British ex- 
perts are going overseas, most 
of them return home in due 
course, bringing with them 
wider experience to the benefit 
of the British industry. 

What has also been notice- 
able to the international 
recruitment agencies is the 
number of approaches which 
. they are now receiving from 
computer staff overseas — 
particularly white South Af- 
ricans now — hoping to get 
jobs in Britain. Although there 
may be concern about British 
expertise going abroad it 
would be mistaken to assume 
that it is a one-way street

Expert 

demand 

becomes 

acute 

One of (fie great ironies of the 
employment scene in Britain 
today is die fret that the 
iod astral sector pledged to 
provide jobs for die future is 
unable to satisfy its own 
manpower needs in the 

present. 

The career of the Education 
Secretary, Kenneth Baker, 
mirrors the problem. As 
Information Technology Min- 
ister three years ago. Baker 
said that information technol- 
ogy would be “the 

powerhouse” of the comatry’s 
economy in the next centoy. 

Last month a report on 
teaching showed him an 
abnamg shortage of t e a cher s 
la technical and scientific 
subjects. It looks as though a 
vicious circle has bees dosed 
— too few teaches, too few 
qualified graduates, too few 
information technology pro- 
fessionals. The powerhouse 
coaid be seriously 
undenuamredL 





The computer industry’s 
shortage of skilled personnel 
has been chronically acate to 
the data processing depart- 
ments of the country's firms 
and Ins ti tu ti ons. Here, the 
co n sequences of manpower 
shortages are well known as a 
fact of life - the postponement 
or cancellation erf new projects, 
the gradual deterioration of 
existing systems and low mo- 
rale with staff ru nni ng to 
standstill. 

The severity of the man- 
power shortage is apparent 
from a number of factors: 

• Overall systems develop- 
ment needs are c on tin u m g to 
increase 

• Selectively, the level of 
profidency in demand is grow- 
ing 

• Recr uitm ent budgets are 
virtually static 

In short the demand for a 
resource already in short sup- 
ply is increasiBg hot the means 
of satisfying demand are 

standing stiU. 

A new report. The DP 
1 Recr uitm e n t Sumy 1986, 
measures the problems in 
some detail, looking at the 
different categories of. staff 
involved. * It finds that the 
shortfall is most marked 
among systems development 
staff — programmers who 
write the computer sys te ms 
and the analysts who en sm e 
that they reflect business re- 
ality. 

Nationally, data procesaug 
departments will need to in- 
crease their manpower to this 
area by about 18 per cent 
between the beginning of 1985 
and the end of next year. At 
the average (JK mstaliatxra, 
with 20 development staff, that 
c odd effectively mean finding 
four or five additions. 

On top of this, departments 
will have to replace the staff 
they lose. With the demaod so 
acute specialist programmers 
areal premium and companies 
can expect perhaps 20 per cent 
of their complement to be 
seduced away dining the year 
with higher salaries. The num- 
ber of new software specialists 
needed by the end of 1987 
leaps to nine or ten — 
approaching 25 per cent of the 
average installation’s current 
strength. 


Strong need for 
writers of code 


At the same time, the de- 
mand for management staff, 
specialist administrators and 
computer operators continoes 
to grow at a less frantic pace. 
But the compnter 
professional’s standard career 
path, moving from pro- 
grammer to systems analyst to 
senior analyst and into 
management, will take a cer- 
tain proportion of a company’s 
valuable development staff 
away from the coal-face. The 
pressure on the remaining 
programmers and analysts is 
sure to increase. 

Computer suppliers have 
attacked the problem them- 
selves over the years. The 
software companies’ packa g ed 
programs take the program- 
ming burden off the end user, 
white foarth generation lan- 
guages and other program- 
ming tools make it easier for 
people to produce and service 
their own programs. But the 
demand curve for writers of 
code is stiU upward, and that 
for programmers of greater 
versatility is even steeper. 

The report was compiled 
from a survey of 1,100 data 
processing managers. By job 
category it details the current 
strength of data processing 
departments and estimates the 
likely recruitment require- 
ments of staff turnovers. 

One of its most te l li ng 
discoveries is that data 
processing managers are *B- 
pbced to make good the 
numbers. Of those with a, 
specific budget allocation for 
DP recruitment, only ten per 
cent expected the sum avail- 
able to be increased by more 
than the rate of wage inflation 
this year.

1986 costs £50 from East Side

HORIZONS 


Through the museum door 


If you see museum work as "quite a nice 
career" U is probably not the one for you. 
It is for those who are very keen and have 
the tenacity and determination to 
progress in a job-competitive field where 
remuneration is generally far from 
spectacular and. at least in private 
museums, job security cannot be 
assumed. 

Rare is the person who can advance in 
a museum career without a degree — a 
very few do. but they are exceptions. So 
aim fora good degree relevant to the type 
of work you intend to pursue. It could be 
in arts or sciences. If your interest is in 
conservation, you will need chemistry, 
physics or materials science. Industrial, 
science and natural history museums 
like an appropriate science degree. 

ir is also important to glean experience 
through voluntary work If you started at 
O level stage, so much the' better. If not. 
stan as soon as possible. Whether in 
museums or on “digs." it will help you 
discover if this work is right for you, and 
you will have an advantage when you 
apply for jobs. 

Armed with a good degree, your next 
step should be to apply to take a one-year 
postgraduate course. People interested in 
museum work in fine or decorative arts 
should contact Manchester University's 
department of art history about their 
course in gallery and museum studies. 

Leicester University's department of 
museum studies offers training in other 
aspects, and evidence of “vocational 
intention" is one of the entry require- 
ments. Non-graduates who pass a

way to obtain experience 

qualifying exam may be admitted in 
special cases. As well as a thorough 
grounding in museum work, plus work 
experience, students specialize in one of 
six subjects: archaeology, geology, his- 
tory of technology, history, natural 
history, museum education services. 

“The course is always over-subscribed 
— this is a popular career because there is 
so much variety in so many different 
fields." says Geoffrey Lewis, head of the 
department, which also provides MA 
and MSc courses in museum studies. His 
certificate students go on to a wide range 
of work, sometimes in one of the small, 
privately run museums which in the past 
decade have become a growth area.

ATHLETICS 


THE TIMES TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 2 1986 . 

American football invasion brings an escape from grey games and grey days 


Trium phant Britons are 

happy to let the 
secret out of the bag 

From Pat Butdter/Athletks Correspondent, StnU&art 


Already they were edging 
towards us in the Neckar 
Stadium last Friday. Earnest 
men wearing steel-rimmed 
and quizzical glances,’ 
carrying stop watches, 
notepads and pencils and 
expectant airs. 

We eyed each other wearily. 
But no. it was not the Inland 
Revenue hit squad, nor even 
Saatchi minions seeking ad- 
vice on how to re-vamp the 
Prime Minister’s image. It was 
foreign journalists coming to 
discover the secret of British 
success. Okay, they had got 
used to Daley Thompson 
winning all the time, and Cbe, 
Cram and Oven lining up to 
let one and other win a 
middle-distance title. But 
what about Linford Christie 
and Roger Black — and Fa- 
tima Whitbread's world 
record? And who the hell was 
Tom McKean? 

Was it true that we plucked 
talented schoolchildren from 

the classroom at the age of 14 
and sent them to sporting 
factory farms? Or that we 
plugged them into little black 
boxes while they slept, or had 
perfected mass-hypnosis, or 
discovered drugs that no-one 
had even dreamed of? 

To tell the truth, we were 
beginning to wonder our- 
selves. And by the time the 
14th European Champion- 
ships were over on Sunday, we 
were as shell-shocked as any- 
one else, but happily so. 
British athletes had won the 
same number of golds — eight 
- as in 1950, but that was long 
before the Soviet Union and 
East Germany had mobilized 
their own athletics meth- 
odology, and with two silvers 
and five bronzes, this collec- 
tive performance was arguably 
the best ever by British ath- 
letes in any international 
championships. 

Britons won the 100, 400, 
800, 1500 and 5000 metres 
and had all three participants 
in the final in four of those five 
races, also winning an historic 
“triple" in the 800m. There 
was also a fourth place in the 
400m and but for a hamstring 
injury to Todd Bennett, and 
some negligence by Christie 
when being edged out of his 
200m heat, a little too relaxed 
after winning the 100m, there 
could have been at least 
another medal for the sprint- 
ers. The 200m, won in 20.95 
seconds, was the weakest 
event of the championships. 

A hamstring injury also 
stopped the talented Colin 
Jackson adding to his world 
junior gold and Common- 
wealth silver in the high 
hurdles, although Stepbane 
Caristan, winning France's 
first track gold at an inter- 
national championship since 
Guy Drut in the same event at 
the 1976 Olympic Games, 
looked unbeatable. 

The rest of Europe had been 
warned last year, when British 
juniors won eight gold medals, 
five silver and five bronze at 
the European junior 
championships in Cottbus. 
East Germany. But for the 
British seniors to finish as 


comparatively close to the 
Soviet and East German ath- 
letes in the medal table, made 
for the overall success story 
If there is any secret to the 
success of British, athletes it is 
an open one, which is that the 
amount of money coming into 
domestic athletics and befog 
channelled into rewarding 
achievement and financing 
development, assures a liveli- 
hood for many more athletes 

Aouita in 
attempt 
on mile 

Lmkuk (Reuter) — Said 
Aouita, (be extraordinary 
Moroccan who already bolds the 
world 1,500 and 5,000 meters 
records, will attempt the mOe 
record tomorrow night as the 
European athletics ci r cuit enters 
its foul stage. Aouita has twice 
this seasoojust Bussed the 3JM0 
world best and was the victim of 
over-eatb osiastic early pace- 
making. when he attempted to 
break Steve Cram's world mile 
mark of three inmates 4632 
seconds in West Berlin on 
Aagnst 15. 

With attention focused on the 
highly socoessfcd European 
championships, Awnta has been 
ott of the limeligM recently. But 
if be is in anything Eke his best 
form, die little Moroccan could 
light op the end of .the season, 
which climaxes in Rome on 
September Ik 

The Olympic MHH) champion, 
aged 25, has modified his orig- 
inal aim to bold the world record 
for every distance from 800 
metres to the marathon, hat he 
is easily the most vosatDe 
athlete of modem times and the 
right conditions, ptos more 

intelligent pacemaking, could 
sec him at last set a world, mark 
Ah year to add to the two he 
picked ap last season. James 
Robinson of America, a special- 
ist over 800 metres, looks the 
likely pace m aker and Us 
compatriot Sydney Maree, who 
is the only man, along with 
Aonita and Cram, to break 330 
for the 1300 meters, wffl easnre 
Aonita has plenty of competition 
over the final bp. 

Renaldo Nebenuah. the world 
record holder for the 110 metres 
hurdles, laces the European 
champion, Stephane Caristan, 
of Fiance in tonight's race, foe 
Olympic 100 metres chsmpion 
and world record holder, Evelyn 
Ashford, makes her first appear- 
ance here, and Ed Moses wffl

in the 400 metita hardies to 118. 

nowadays. And Frank Dick, 
the director of British coach- 
ing, can legitimately expect 
some of that money to come 
his way as a salary increase for 
what is perceived to be a 
successful team performance. 

But any evaluation of suc- 
cess carries an inherent warn- 
ing for the continuation of 
that success. It is an individual 
sport and whereas gaps left in 
team sports can be camou- 
flaged, athletics champions 
are not so easily 
reproductable. A Cram may 
follow a Coe and Oveu but 
there is no evident successor 
to Thompson, who is unlikely 


to be in these championships 
in 1990. 

Athletics relies on the emer- 
gence of talented individuals 
like Roger Blade, who was a 


GYMNASTICS 


rugby playing schoolboy, ca- 
pable of no more than 47.7 
seconds for 400m two years 
ago. It is a-tribuie to his talent 
and application, and proxim- 
ity to a fine coach like Mike 
Smith in Southampton, that 
Black should progress to 45.26 
last year in winning the Euro- 
pean junior title and that he 
should bring the United King- 
dom record down to 44.59 m 
winning here. 

In short, it is only the 
conditions which promote ex- 
cellence which can be re- 
produced and not excellence 
itself. The paucity of success 
among tins British women is 
proof of that. After Fatima 
Whitbread’s superlative ef- 
forts and the fine perfor- 
mances by Judy Simpson and 
Yvonne Murray, die waste- 
land is directly attributable to 
the appalling state of the 
administration of women's 
athletics in Britain compared 
to the men. 

Miss Whitbread has proved 
herself beyond doubt with her 
gold medal and the two long- 
est throws ever after her 
Commonwealth farrago. And, 
had the weather been better, 
Thompson could reasonably 
have expected to break his 
world record, as could the 
superb Heike Drechsfer, who 
equalled the one she shared 
with Marita Koch in the 
200m. The other two world 
records went to Yuri Sedykh, 
in the hammer, and Marina 
Stepanova, in the 400m hur- 
dles. 

Coe and Cram probably 
proved that at their level 
nowadays, it was only possible 
to concentrate on one distance 
at a time for the one was 
dearly better than the other in 
their respective victories. 
They are due to compete in a 
5,000m seriously for die first 
time. Buckner should be there 
too, and Ovett expects to 
recover from foe virus which 
caused him to drop out of the 
5,000m on Sunday in time to 
run one or two races before the 
end of foe season. 

The other open secret of 
Stuttgart has been that foe 
Italian long-distance men in- 
dulge in blood doping, Stefano 
Met. foe winner of the 
10,000m, who claims that he 
does not indulge, yet has been 
subjected to administrative 
pressure to do so in foe past, is 
foe source of this revelation 
and it has. been aired in the 
Italian press with as little 
repercussion as regular foot- 
ball scandals. 

The defence is that it is not 
illegal but foe morality is 
questionable, since it is a 
competitive aid. But that a 
high-ranking IAAF official 
should retort with a “holier 
than thou'* attitudewhen 
questioned on the subject, did 
not give hope that foe pro- 
posed four-year ban on drug 
lakers would be taken any 
more seriously than the pre- 
vious “life" bans were.

Hats on for American football: The game imported from the United States brings excitement to playing fields of England 

A chance to revel in the exotic 



V-’-sR 

r : 4 -?r Simon 
Barnes 


There were Car too many 
horrible little red squirrels 
d ottering up the place, they all 
agreed in the 19tv centnry. So 
fcy started shooting them. 
Then, between 1876 awl 1905, 

a few people, squir rel-lovers as 
it happened, introduced a new 
kind of squirrel to the country 
as an agreeable exoticism. It 
was a grey squirrel, and it 
came from the United States. 

The results we knew. The 
grays did better every year, foe 
reds did worse. It was net, so 
for as anyone knows, a matter 
of direct aggression. It just 
looked like that- And one of 
foe pecubuities of the business 
is foe way in which the red 
squired appears to find it 
impossible to re-establish it- 
self once an area has been 
colonized by foe invading pey 
from across foe water. 

I wondered, as I watched 
London Ravens defeat 
Streafoara Olympians 20-12 
in foe Budweiser Bowl Ameri- 
can football final on Sunday, if 
h could happen in sport. This 
imparted exoticism is in the 


middle of foe most extraor- 
dinary success. And football — 
proper football, soccer — is not 
having foe best of times. 

London Ravens were i n the 
van of the new game, starting 
op almost as soon as Channel 
Four brought American foot- 
ball to Britain.- They chose 
their name because of a delight 
in the collective noun: an 
Knkjudness of ravens. One of 
their early members. Roly 
Pickering, dropped out after 
puncturing a lung. He got the 
msmy playing soccer. 

Baffling politics 

The Ravens are foe stron- 
gest team in the country now. 
But many, many other teams 
have sprung up, with names 
fall of a kind of mid- Atlantic 
wistfidness, Dunstable Cow- 
boys, Cotswold Bears, Brad- 
ford Dolphins, Thames 
Barriers, Chelmsford Chero- 
kee. The organization is a 
tangle of collapsing leagues, 
daredevil finance, hungry 
sponsors, and baffling politics: 
as we stand, there are two 
leagues, foe Bu dweiser and the 
British- American Football 
League (BAFL). 

Big never mind the politics, 
feel the numbers. There were 


about 5000 people at Crystal 
Palace for the Budweiser 
Bowl, and that was reckoned a 
disappointment. There are 71 
teams in the Budweiser 
League, and 40 mere in the 
BAFL. More and more people 
want Go play, for tins has 
become the romantic sport of 
the 80s. 

It represents an escape from 
grey games and grey days. For 
spectators and players it is a 
chance to revel in the exotic, 
and to indulge in an orgy of 
dressing up. This is the sport 
for the dandy all right: spec- 
tators wear toucan-billed caps 
and replicas of Dan Marino's 
short, and as for foe players, 
they are allowed - forced - to 
dress up as sapennen. How 
could anyone resist? As hip- 
pies team to Hradnisui rather 
than the Chmch of England 
for retigkm, revelling in exotic 
notions, exotic words, and 
exotic clothes, so the sports- 
men of Britain torn to Ameri- 
can foofoalL Soccer is staid: 
American football is tall of 
romance. 

Can it last? One is reminded 
of the motdd-farealring in- 
troduction of Rugby League 
into the South, and of the new 
world of soccer in foe United 
States. Gandy flowers, but no 
roots. But American football 


frag an advantage here: foot- 
ball is currently a straggling 
game. And with Baseball to 
come to the screens in Octo- 
ber, another craze is toamsliag. 
Perhaps cricket should take 
notice. 

S erious threat 

There are some exotic spe- 
cies of « "■"»«! that are in- 
troduced to Britain, and 
appear to adapt quite deco- 
rously. The muutjack, the 
Chinese water-deer, or foe 
Derbyshire wallabies, for 
example, or even the perfectly 
genuine case of the red scor- 
pions at Ongar underground 
station. But sometimes a new 
animal poses a serious threat: 
frp mint: is doing to the otter 
what foe grey squired has 
already done to foe red. 1 doo t 
know if H could happen in 
sport: but if I were administer- 
ing a traditional British game, 
I would not laugh it off. 

It is hardly a bad tiling, to 
see people trying a new sport, 
but foe established sports 
should wooden why are we 
failing to keep our audiences 
and our players?. Is it the 
attraction of the new game?. 
Or could it be that there is 
really something wrong with

A new season usually means 
the dusting-off of traditional 
expectations: a bright optimism 
raises its head, expressing the 
hope that all will be for the best, 
even if the world is no longer the 
best of all possible worlds. 

Not so m Rugby Union this 
season, i suspect, as the four 
home . countries brace them- 
selves for a season which will 
not end for the leading players 
until June when the inaugural 
World Cup reaches its cl imax . 
Never has the divide between 
the broad base of the dub game 
and the international game ap- 
peared greater. 

Events in South Africa this 
summer have soured the alti- 
tude of many who qjoy the 
game as wefl as confirming the 
prejudices of those — many in 
schools and colleges — who 
would HiccuaHt- youngsters from 


perceived connection with the 
embattled Republic 

It would be better, perhaps, if 
the home countries thoroughly 
endorsed the World Cup even in 
the absence of South Africa 
(whose insensitivity in contact- 
ing individual players for a five 
Nations tour last month will not 
have aided to its list of friends). 

But they do not, and their 
mistrust heightens every day 
that there is no official explana- 
tion forthcoming from New 
Zealand of the organization — 
particularly the financial or- 
ganization — of the unofficial 
Ca valiers’ tour to South Africa. 

Many leading British officials 
foe! they are groping in the dark. 
Lacking the certainty of the 
players who, essentially, have 
only to turn up and play, they 
feel they are being forced into 
change which may not be for the 
good of the game. They know, 
too, that the home countries 
must play well above Imown 
form to make an impact in the 
World Cup, and are thus con- 
tent that the. Five Nations 
championship isan established, 
if limited, platform.

Distinctive

alter being selected wilh the . 
Range Rover team's Distinc- 
tive. as one of six riders to 
compete in the Polish threeslay- 
cvtini championship at Biaiy 
Bor between September 18-21. 

The team of four, to be 
announced on September 17 
after foe veterinaiy inspection, 
will be chosen from foe wold 
champion Virginia Lcng. with 
Night Cap. Rachel Hunt, with 
her Badminton runner-up Pig. 
let, Madeleine Gurdon, wnh her 

consistently-placed The Done

Wattic. and Jane ThelwaU, with 
King’s Jester, whose chief daim- 
lo-lame appears to be third . 
place at foe Breda three-day- l 
event in The Neth erlan ds. The 
surprise exclusion from the six 
is Rodney Powell, with Catkin 
of Rush 3 11. who are only re- 
serves despite their superb 
performance at Badminton th:. 
year where they finished 12th. 

Five teams - Britain, the 
United States. West Germar- 
Poland and the Soviet Unkv- 
arc contesting the ebampios 
ships, where the course is c-. 
peered to be comparable in su> 
vo that of the world champion- 
ships in Australia last Ma>. 

"jf Captain Phillips is sel e cted 
os one of the team of four (the 
other two compete as individ- 
uals), it will be the first time he 
has competed as a member oran 
official British championship 
team since riding Lincoln at the 
Alternative Olympics at 
Fbntainebleu, in France, in 
1980. His eventing career, filled 
with success in foe 1970s, 
including three Badminton wins 
and an Olympic team gold 
medal, has been punctuated 
with bad luck over foe last six 
years. 

Lincoln, with whom he won 
his fourth Badminton in 1981, 
went lame soon afterwards. His 
replacement. Classic Lines, was 
heading for foe 1982 world 
championships in West Ger- 
many but was withdrawn be- 
cause of injuiy. The horse bteut 
stopping and Captain Phillips 
finally gave up the struggle and 
sold him to America, where he is 
racing with great success. 

Two i<»"« years were followed 
by foe emergence of Distinctive 
as a potential top-class event 
horse. He had been bought by 
Captain Phillips as a three-year- 
old for £400 and had been 
brought on carefully. When he 
earned a place on foe short list 
for the world championships in 
Australia in May. after winning 
last year's Cbalsworfo force-day 
event in Derbyshire, Captain 
Phillips’s luck looked to have 
changed. 

Two days before Distinctive 
was due to go into quarantine 
for foe world championships, 
the horse was discovered to 
have a skin disease. It was 
quickly cleared up but it meant 
he had to be withdrawn from the 
squad. Now, once again, .the 
impressive eight-year-old geld- 
ing by Don Carlos is poised to 
help his master back into foe 
forefront of foe sport.

game: foe 
amateurism or Rugby Union 
played to foe highest possible 
standard, even if that involves 
paying players for their time if 
not their performance. 

Apart from being a contradic- 
tion in terms, I do not believe a 
pro fe s s i onal form of Rugby 
Union is desirable or inevitable, 
so long as players whose skill 
and dedication enables them to 
stride foe international stage 
receive consideration appro- 
priate to this day and age. 

Sport opens new vistas un- 
dreamed of by those who 
framed foe amateur regulations 
many years ago. “They were 
rules made by gentlemen, for 
gentlemen in a gentlemen's 
dub." Reid says. “That situa- 
tion no longer obtains." 

But if foe game remains for 
foe players, and those players 
are going to contend against 
each other in a world champion- 
ship. they must all abide by the 
same regulations and be gov- 
erned by a body with foe power 
to authorize and to punish. That 
is the challenge offered this long 
season: can rugby’s ruling 
classes administer its destiny 
because if they do not, there will 
be others, less desirable, who 
wffl.

RACING: NEWMARKET TRAINERS SET FOR A SUCCESSFUL RAID ON HAMILTON-PARK 


I- 


Hard As Iron 
to recoup 
losses from 
Sandown 

By Mandarin (Michael Phillips) 

Ibid As Iron is napped to livo prefer Easy Line now that he is 
up io his name at Hamilton racing again over what appears 

to be his :

- . Pjumbeentre Handicap just 
three days after he was involved 
. 'in that dose finish for a much 
more valuable prize at Sandown 
on Saturday. 

Normally. I would think twice 
1 about going for a horse given so 
little respite. But in this ease 
'' there is evidence to support my 
•'.contention that Patrick 
; Haslam’s three-year-old thrives 
.-on hard graft. 

In June he won a ten-furlong 
- handicap at Nottingham on a 
' - Monday and capped that only 
five days later when he made an 
‘ * even longer trip north from 
' ■ Newmarket to Ayr to win a 
- similar race, again in the hands 
■_ of Tyrone Williams, who knows 
*- him so well. 

' After that Hard As Iron was 
' successful at Newmarket where 
he ran on strongly to beat Top 
Range. Enharr and King's Cru- 
sade. all winners since. 

in his last two races. though. 
'Hard As Iron has had to be 
. content with second place, each 
time at Sundown. But in neither 
'instance was he remotely dis- 
graced: first when he was beaten 
. three lengths by Captain's Niece 
.’and more recently when he ran 
the useful Rattle Along to 
’’threcq uaners of a length. 

La rlicr in the day Has lam and 
. his talented young jockey can 
.*• also win the Royal Scots Dra- 
jcuon tiuards Cup with Easy

Newmarket raiders look 
poised to do well on the Scottish

Mark Prescott and George 
Duffidd. and Buckley sustain- 
ing his improvement by win- 
ning the Plumbccntrc Sid rad

Falling Leaf, a decisive win- 
ner at Yarmouth last month, is 
preferred to Mubdi and Premier 
. Lad in the EBF HaUcalh Stakes.. 

Stable companion 
Colly weston. who won. the last 
race at Chester on Saturday, can 
also help Duffidd to inch still 
closer towards his first century 
of winners in a season and thus 
achieve an ambition. 

For obvious reasons it invari-

One nun who does rate the 
Million success al the top of hbi 
list is the winning jockey. Fer- 
nando Tom. a man who is 
establishing something of a 
reputation with the ladies. ' 

Toro, aged 45. had previoasly 
had his best ride in the Million 
when second on Royal Heroine 


From Guy Butchers, Chicago 

two years ago. while that same 
filly gave him his biggest win 
when taking -the Breeders' Cop

the same year. 

’ Torn said: “1 just get along 
-pretty well with the fillies. I treat 
• them the same way as my wife. 
We've been together 26 years 
and I never fight her back. 

Torn lives with his wife. Iris, 
and . Tour children near Santa

riding for some 30 years and is 
considered in be one of the best 
grass riders in the United 
States.

Essex make but little 
progress against 
hardy men of Kent 

By John Woodcock, Cricket Correspondent 

FOLKESTONE: Kent, wlh . P**' ft ^ 


three first-innings wickets in since being left out of the lest 
hand, are 103 runs behind side to keep himself n dose 
Fverx conienuon for the winter tour. 

In conditions favourable to So, indeed. JSf<E?S’ovm 
slow bowling, Essex were now bowled the first^O overs 


made to work hard for bonus 
points by Kent yesterday. At 
various limes they looked like 
taking a firm hold of the 


of Kent’s innings from the 
downland end. in which he 
held a good return catch from 
Taylor, had Benson caught at 


match, but Kent’s batsmen the wicket and bowled AsfetL 
sold their wickets dearly, no Since we are r ^!2L S® I 
one more than Christopher candidates for Austtaha, I 
Cowdrey, who was 45 not out would not entirely rde outthe 


when bad light stopped play 
65 minutes early. Essex, by 
then, were three bowling 
points better off than at the 
start of the day. 

The weather would have 
been considered dismal for 
Folkestone's Easter hockey 
festival. For the cricket season 
at holiday time it was ridicu- 
lously cold. Bui the cricket, 
though often slow, was always 
interesting. I fancy that if 
Essex were not destined to win 
the county championship they 
would have lost the toss here. 
The winning of it on Saturday 
gave them a dear advantage. 
By yesterday afternoon, before 
bad light came to Kent's aid. 
the ball was turning enough to 
suggest that batting in the 
fourth innings today could be 
a very awkward matter. 

In view of this, Essex, with 
nine wickets already down in 
their first innings, batted on 
yesterday morning. In half an 
hour Pringle and Acfield 
added another 28, Pringle 
getting to within three of his 
first hundred of the season 
before being caught at long off. 
It is a pity that he so often 
finds himself batting for En- 
gland in some sort of crisis, 
because, when so disposed, he 
is such a good hitter of the 
ball. In the four hours of his 
innings he hit two fours, four 
sixes and 16 twos, an unusual 
ratio. 


chances of East, the Essex 
wicketkeeper. He is left- 
handed. which few 
wicketkeepers are. but be is 
quick and experienced and he 
bats belter than French or 
Rhodes and as well as 
Richards. . ... 

Having crashed the ball 
around while making 50 on 
Sunday afternoon, Tavare was 
fasting again yesterday. 
though he did allow htmselT 
two drives for four in an over 
from Foster to celebrate an 
hour passed without scoring. 
Eventually he prodded 
Acfield’s second ball to silly 
mid-off. 

Since his plucky effort in the 
Benson and Hedges Cup final 
in July. Graham Cowdrey has 
not often had a place in the 
championship side. He has 
found it a hard game, which it 
is at this level, especially when 
the weather is not up to much. 
But he played his part dog- 
gedly until Prichard caught 
him very well, low and left 
handed in the gully. Childs 
had beaten him often enough 
to deserve the wickeL 
Foster's three wickets took 
his total for the season to 94. 
*11 being well, he will get 100 
for Ihe first time. Childs, too, 
has just had a wonderfully 
good August, taking 40 wick- 
ets during the month, which is 
remarkable for a spinner these 
days. Underwood has prob- 


often. Childs was very ac- 
curate yesterday, at the ex- 
pense, perhaps, of some 
variation. When he had one 
wicketkeeper caught by the 
other it was his 79th wicket of 
the season, more, I would 
think than Edmonds and 
Emburey put together. 

By 5.30 it was getting a little 
dark — but it was disappoint- 
ing that Christopher Cowdrey 
and Dilley opted to go off. 
Acfield and Childs were bowl- 
ing at the time, and we should 
certainly have had another 
half hour’s play. I blame the 
umpires, not the two yes- 
terday so much as umpires in 
general, for being rather too 
light-metre conscious at the 
moment and for lending to 
overlook the paying public.

with a career-best 150 not out, 
and Tony PigotL who also nit a 
career-best 80. shared an eighth- 
wicket stand of 149 in 32 overe. 
These two put the final nail into 

Nottinghamshire's coffin. 

Wells was 100 at tea when 
Sussex were 375 for seven and 
ted by 245 with two hours left. 
Parker, the acting Sussex cap- 
lain, spurned any question oj a 
declaration, knowing that Cotin 
Wells and Jones would not be 
able to bowl through illness and 
injury. Parker finally relented 
hal fan-hour afterwards when 
Sussex were 430 for eight, their 
highest total of the season. 

Nottinghamshire, ten an aca- 
demic target of 301 m 80 
minutes, faced one over betore 
bad light stopped play. Not- 
tinghamshire still remain 
favourites to finish second in 
the championship. Their failure 
to win this match, however, has 
enhanced Essex’s prospects of 
the title, especially if they should 
win at Folkestone today.

A successful outcome to an 1 
incident involving the helmeied 1 
Rajcsh Sharma - who had been < 
hit on the head by a ball bowled , 
by Marshall — also helped bring | 
a satisfactory conclusion. 1 

Derbyshire's distress at tite 
dav’s start had been consid- . 
cnible. It stemmed from an 
incisive spell by Marshall whose 
threat as he appeared out of the 
ucyncss and gloom was so groat 
as to leave the batsmen 
sirokclcss. in some awe and 
probably unsighted even though 
Marshall was bowling on a 

pudding-like pitch. 

In a way. Maher and Roberts 
had been fortunate in profemng 
a bat to get a touch and offer a 
catch. In Miller's case, being 
rapped on the pads and plumb 
in front had been good enough. 
Next in line was the unfortunate 
Sharma. a middle order bats- 
man who stands bfi 3m and who 
intercepted a short pitched ball 
from Marshall. Sharma re- 
turned to the pavilion 
complaining of dizziness and 
was transported to Derbyshire 
Royal Infirmary, where, follow- 
ing a precautionary X-ray he 
spent Iasi night under 
observation. . . . . . ,

of Ripley for their match on 
Sunday. The Sri Lankans, some 
of whom have played before 
crowds of 20.000 when at 
scbcwl. must be wondering what 
is going on. 

They bowled England out for 
290 yesterday on a pitch which 
gave some help to Weerasinghe, 
the leg spinner. He bowled 
Smith with a googly. not before 
Smith had made 97 in 167 
minutes with 15 fours and a six, 
and had Harding well caught at 
silly point in the same over. He 
tossed the ball up more than say, 
De Silva would have done, 
without possessing the same 
control. 

Smith, who has played for 
Glamorgan, was well supported

Middlesex bowler, who struck 
41. They averted the follow-on.

and Haturusinghe and had 
Gurusinghe caught at the 
wicket. Then Jurangtathy edsed 
Smith to second slip, leaving Sri 
Lanka 62 for four.

DEATH CALL (ITV. 9.00pm). yet 
another series featuring Mark 
McManus as Taggart tne Scots 
detective who Is so dour that 
you would swear he had bean 
denied a wee dram ever since 
the day he was weaned. Sporting 
enthusiasts w« instinctively 
understand the depth of his 
gloom when I say that he 
mutters profanities H re “If golfs 
a religion, t’m glad I'm an 
atheist”. Logically, he is the 
Job's comforter par 
excellence. His sergeant turning 


up with a mighw hangover at 
the reservor where a body has 
been found, receives the 
sardonic greeting from his chief: 
”1 thought the dead body was 
in tin water.

• Radio choice; Theodor

that it ends on a note of hope.

Setback for England as 
Lineker eludes Robson 


By Stnazt Jones, Football Correspondent 


England’s only practice 
match before the opening of 
the European championships 
will feature neither the captain 
nor the leading goalscorer. 
The right back, a central 
defender and a midfield player 
who would have expected to 
have been in contention for a 




Wednesday are also unavail- 
able. “Four years ago, that 
would have irritated me,” 
Bobby Robson said yesterday 
as he announced lus squad 
that will leave for Stockholm 
on Monday. “Now I just 
forget about it and pick some- 
one else”. Bryan Robson, 
Stevens (Everton's version), 
Fenwick and Reid are all 
injured. Their loss, though 
disappointing, is therefore un- 
avoidable. 

The absence of Lineker, the 
sharpest marksman in the first 
division last season and in the 
World Cup finals last sum- 
mer. is particularly galling. 
Had it not been for an 
elongated breakdown of 
communications, he would 
again have been leading 
England's attack. As it is. he 
may be ruled out of all their 
foture friendly matches. 

Robson, using telephone 
numbers supplied to him by 
Everton, attempted to contact 
Lineker before he left for 
Barcelona. He wanted to ad- 
vise him that a clause, 
stipulating that he should be 
released for ail internationals 
fixtures, should be inserted 
into his contract. Wilkins and 
Hateley. for instance, are 
given that assurance by AC 
Milan. 

But Lineker remained as 


elusive during the summer as 
more than a few first division 
defences found last season and 

the crucial message foiled to 

reach its intended destination 
in lime. Robson, although he 
has established an amicable 
agreement with Terry 
Venables, recognises with re- 


on Cadiz next Wednesday, 
have the right to retain their 
expensive acquisition. 

“He scored twice in his 
opening game for them at the 
weekend, so I can understand 
that he wants to continue his 
good starL But I'm surprised 


“There is hardly anybody left 
from last season,” Robson 
said, “and. Since this is a 
friendly match. I've decided to 
introduce a new crop. The 
only overage player, for exam- 
ple. is a goalkeeper”. 

Robson has promoted a 
couple of 21-year-old players. 


has come in as expected to fill 
in for his namesake Bryan. 
Had he not spent a few 
months sitting on Arsenal's 
touchline last season, he 
would, Bobby Robson says, 
have been that much doser to 
being in foe Worid Cup squad.

that he didn’t get that clause 
written in and 1 didn't know 
about it for sure until yes- 
terday. There is no question 
that it is a big Mow for us.” 

Robson was tempted to 
bring in Cottee, West Ham 
United’s exciting young pros- 
pect. as an immediate replace- 
ment He is to reassess his 
form tonight at Upton Park 
against Nottingham Forest 
and he may yet summon him 
if there are any further 
withdrawals before the senior 
squad gathers on Sunday 
evening. 

Cottee has not been in- 
cluded in the under-21 party, 
who are scheduled to meet 
their Swedish counterparts in 
Oestersund on Tuesday. 


for which he was put on 
standby. 

“He has served a two-year 
term with the juniors,” Rob- 
son said. “He is a promising 
player. He is strong, has 
stamina and be gets into the 
box like Bryan. He has to learn 
to time those runs and per- 
haps to improve his technique 
on the balL Above all, he 
needs experience”. 

Mitchell Thomas, of 
Tottenham Hotspur, steps 
into the vacancy behind 
Sansom at left back. England’s 
manager has looked at 
Statham and Pickering in the 
past and is still considering 
Pearce, of Nottingham Forest 
“There are not many choices 
in that position but it would 


appear that Thomas is the best 
prospect in the country.” 

Wright, once regarded simi- 
larly highly as a central de- 
fender, is still a month away 
from recovering fully from a 
broken leg (to think that he 
told Robson that he would be 
available for the World Cup 


albeit temporarily, by Watson, 
who could yet be a sounder 
international player than 

Marlin. 

The other 16 on Robson’s 
abbreviated list were all with 
him during the extended sum- 
mer tour wben the spirit of the 
squad was unquenchable. In 
spite of the absence of the 
inspirational captain, it will 
doubtless be so again for the 
preparations that are un- 
reasonably brief England en- 
ter the qualifying stages next 
month in Belfast. 

Having beaten Finland 
away 3-1 early in August, 
Sweden held the Soviet 
Union, one of the more tal- 
ented sides to be seen in 
Mexico, at home some 10 days 
ago. “I haven't seen them fora 
couple of years,” Robson 
admitted, “but I have had 
good reports about them and 
they will be a hard test for us.” 

So will Spain, England’s 
next opponents outside the 
competitive arena. They are to 
act as hosts, probably in 
Barcelona or Seville, at the 
end of February. Robson is 
also planning to take on 
another strong nation at 
Wembley a few days after the 
FA Cup finaL An invitation 
has already been sent to 1

Scotland recall Johnston Saunders 

but Roxburgh finds # *g£ ( 
no place for McAvenme 

M. Dean Saunders, the Bne 


Although he seldom es- 
caped the overpowering pres- 
ence of Terry Butcher, the 
England World Cup defender 
who was his immediate oppo- 
nent in Sunday’s Old Firm 
match. Maurice Johnston's 
recall to the Scotland party for 
their match with Bulgaria has 
been greeted with almost 
universal acclaim. 

So sharp has the Celtic 
forward been since his way- 
ward experiences in Australia 
which led to his exclusion 
from the Scotland World Cup 
side because of his. alleged a 
hedonistic approach to life, 
that he has become the 
favourite of Scotland support- 
ers. who admire, if the truth be 
told, the player with the touch 
of devil. 

A warning, however, has 
gone out from the new Scot- 
land manager, Andy Rox- 
burgh. a former headmaster, 
not only to Johnston but to all 
the players in the pool which 
was announced yesterday. 

“From now on. all our 
players must be walking 
advertisements for Scotland —

on and ofT the park,” he said. 

Whether Johnston will ever 
become the “solid citizen” 
which obviously is a backbone 
the new Scotland manager 
seeks in his attempt to give the 
country credibility in a tour-

nothing but disappointment

Questions were asked, how- 
ever, about why Frank 
McAvennie of West Ham, 
who has impressed Scots 
watching his progress on tele- 
vision, has been left oul 

Roxburgh was blunt “We 
have had him watched three 
times since the season 
started.” he explained. “But 
we felt that although his two 
goals against Manchester 
United made fine television, 
the player has started slowly 
and his play was not yet as 
fluent as those we have 
selected.” 

He said it would not have 
been practicable to have 
added to the pool players such 
as Shaiyr, Speedie and 
Sturrock in view of the num- 
ber of forwards already at top 
form available. 

He pointed out, however, 
that attackers of the quality of 
McAvennie would not be 
forgotten. 

Roxburgh may not be the 
choice of the man in the street 
for the job of Scotland man- 
ager but few will argue about 
his wisdom in this selection. 

Recurrence 
of injury 
for Moses 

Manchester United, who 
have lost their opening three 
League fixtures, have had 
another setback with the news 
that Remi Moses is injured 
and is out of Saturday's match 
at Leicester. 

Moses has a recurrence of 
the ankle injury which has 
threatened his career for the 
last two years. He returned to 
the dub last Thursday after 
three and a half weeks treat- 
ment by foe Amsterdam 
specialist who treated Bryan 
Robson, and was thought to 
be cured. 

Pat Nevin has recovered 
from a knee injury and is 
induded in Chelsea's squad of 
IS for tonight's home game 
with Coventry as foe London 
dub seek their first win. 

Gary Briggs, Oxford 
United's central defender, 
missed training yesterday with 
a knee injury and may miss 
the away game against 
Everton. Slatter has been 
added to the squad. Sheedy, 
Everton’s influential midfield 
player, has an ankle injury and 
could miss the game. Aspinall 
and Wilkinson are on standby. 

Ray Stewart, recalled to the 
Scotland squad yesterday for 
the first time in four years, 
faces a late test on a hip injury 
before West Ham’s game 
a gainst Nottingham Forest. 
West Ham’s manager, John 
Lyafl, says he is hopeful 
Stewart will play. 

After their surprise 1-0 vic- 
tory at Old Trafford, Chariton 
are unchanged for their home 
ame fellow first di- 

vision newcomers, Wimble- 
don. who await fitness tests on

Graham Rix, Arsenal's for-

steps in 
for Hughes 

By Clive White 

Dean Saunders, the Brigh- 
ton forward, aged 22, steps 
into one of foe voids in foe 
Wales team against Finland in 
Helsinki tomorrow week 
knowing that he has little hope 
of filling it permanently. 
Saunders was chosen yes- 
terday as replacement for 
Mark Hughes because 
Barcelona's £2ra British im- 
port is suspended for foe first 
two games of this European 
championship. 

Saunders, who has yet to 
play in competition for Wales, 
impressed Mike England, now 
in his new capacity as part- 
time manager, during the tour 
matches against Canada this 
summer, scoring twice in the 
3-0 win in Vancouver. It will 
not be foe first time, though, 
that he has partnered Rush. 
He came on as substitute 
against foe Republic of Ire- 
land last March. 

If Wales were to lose one 
half of their deadly duo, it 
could not have come at a less 
inconvenient moment in 
group six of this champion- 
ship. Both Wales’s opening 
fixtures are against Finland, 
foe weakest member of foe 
group. Hughes’s special tal- 
ents will be more seriously 
needed against Denmark and 
Czechoslovakia. England said: 
“Losing him is a tremendous 
blow. We want to get off to a 
good start because with Den- 
mark in foe group, we need to 
pick up points against the 
other two.” It must be galling 
to know that Hughes’s ban is 
punishment for an offence 
dating back to two years ago 
when he was a member of foe 
under-21 team. Because of the 


The punch that knocked out Connors: Witsken showing the determination that won the day

From Rex Bellamy, Tennis Correspondent, New York 


It took the last 30 mantes of 
the German Open hen as 
Sunday to (each Peter Bate 
the harsh reality of pro- 
fessional life. 

In that time, the precocious 
newcomer to foe European 
tom 1 lost more than he won as 
be dropped a shot at each of 
the last three holes. Those 
errors cost him £3,323 — the 
difference between joint fifth 
and joint 10th place. They also 
co st him his chance to gain 
immediate qualification to 
■ext year’s circuit. 

As it is, he still needs some 
£1,500 to make sure of fnrisb- 
ing the season in the top 125 m 
foe Epson Order of Merit, and 
exemption from the annual 
qualifying school at La 
Manga, Spain. 

He should hare no problems 
working off that deficit. His 
bright showing since ho min g 
professional last month has 
won him a special sponsor’s 
invitation to the rich European 
Masters at Oans-sur-Sieire, 
Switzerland, starting on 
Thursday. A top 30 finish m 
foe Alps is all he needs after 
£3,052 in Germany to

Jimmy Connors was beaten 
6-1 6-4, 7-5, by somebody 
called Todd Witsken in foe 
third round of foe United 
Slates Open championships. 
Neither Connors nor the Press 
quite knew what to make of it 
After the match Connors did 
not sound particularly de- 
pressed. He might have been 
out fora stroll in the park. The 
problem for the Press was 
whether the defeat of a player 
who had not won a tour- 
nament for almost two years 
was still news. In foe circum- 
stances — a grand slam tour- 
nament and Witsken — it was. 

Today is Connors’s 34th 
birthday. It has been evident 
for a year or so that much of 
foe okl speed and punch, 
much of the old bounce and 
stamina, has been draining 
out of him. Everybody, not 
least Witsken, knew that So 
Witsken diligently kept Con- 
nors at work for two hours and 
10 minutes of a hot afternoon 
and beat him without having 
to take many risks or play 
exceptionally. 

Connors could not put the 
bail away. Nor could he keep it 
in play long enough. As foe 
match went on it became 
increasingly dear foal if 
Witsken kept his bead, there 
was no way Connors could 
hurt him. Witsken, aged 22, 
comes from Indiana and is 
competing here for foe first 
time. He played an admirable 
match both tactically and 
technically. He ran down as 
much as be could, insisting 
that Connors should keep on 
playing shots, and on occa- 
sion. he introduced discreet 
variations of pace and length 
to mess Connors about And 
Connors died quietly. 


Connors had won the title 
five times and had readied the 
semi-finals, at least, for 12 
consecutive years, it would 
have been better, more 
respectful, towards his mem- 
ories, and ours, had he ad- 
vanced towards a quarter-final

with Boris Becker. But Con- 
nors seemed to realize that 
there was not much chance of 
thaL So he settled for a bag 
finish, just to remind us that 
foe street fighter, the tennis 
Marciano, still lurked some- 
where within that weary 
frame. 

Connors saved five match 
points. Then Witsken lured 
him into a sixth trap with a 
backhand drop — and seconds 
later Connors missed the tar- 
get with a backhand down foe 
line. He had gone down with 

— ’reminders of foe far more 
illustrious battles he had 
fought and won at Hushing 
Meadow, Wimbledon and 
Paris. But those glories have 
long been fading. All Connors 
could do was jog our 
memories. 

Connors came off court and 
said be felt “flat” In the old 
days his response to defeat 
was often bitter, even angry. 
Not now. When o nee-great 


players are on the way down 
and begin to lose more often, 
defeat ceases to matter as 
much. They still have that 
pride. They still care about 
dignify. But they have learnt 
to live among mountains 
without climbing them. 

It must be doubted i£ by the 
end of the month, many 
people will easily remember 
foe players (Paul Annacone 
and Witsken) who ruined 
John McEnroe’s attempted 
comeback and gave Connors, 
another push towards the less 
arduous pleasures of foe over- 
35 circuit. Annacone and 
Witsken are not all that good. 
They just seized their chances 
to demonstrate that at present 
McEnroe and Connors are not 
all that good either. McEnroe 
is young enough to return to 
the top 10 if he wants that 
badly enough. If not he must 
either retire or adjust himself 
to a reduced level of 
expectation. 

Neither McEnroe nor Con- 
nors has won a grand slam 
tournament since 1984. Ex- 
cept for a fleeting appearance 
by Connors at Wimbledon, 
two great, delightfully enter- 
taining championships have 
come and gone without them. 
They were missed in Paris and 
at Wimbledon, but they were 
not missed much. As Ameri- 
cans, they will be missed 
rather more in what is left of 
foe US championships. But 
there is much truth, harsh 
though it may be, in the old 
Irish saying that being in- 
dispensable is much better 
than being dispensable. Peo- 
ple with names like Connors 
and McEnroe have special 
cause to think about thaL 


Bate has, however, already 
earned the respect of his new 
colleagues in professional golf, 
and proved his steel during the 
ordeal of being paired in the 
German Open third road 
with Severiano Ballesteros, an 
experience that no less a 
•player than Bernhard Langer 
‘has described as intimidating. 

“He is the finest 18-year-old 
golfer I have ever seen,” said*

time lapse involved, foe 
Welsh FA have tried, without 
success, to get the penalty 
quashed or reduced. What is 
Wales’s loss is Spain's gain 
and Barcelona can now retain 
the services of both Lineker 
and Hughes for a league game 
foe same night as foe Wales 
and England games. 

Wales, whose only 
recognised forward in the 16- 
man squad is Charles of 
Oxford United, will also be 
without Van den Hauwe not 
to mention foe first and 
second choice goalkeepers, 
Southall and NiedzwieckL 
The back four defender, who 
has missed Wales’s last five 
matches and foe start of the 
season, is still troubled by a 
Mood disorder. Consequently 
foe legendary Joey Jones, who 
retired from foe international 
scene last year with a record 
72 caps, makes an involuntary 
comeback, aged 31. He will 
probably play alongside 
Ratciiffe, in foe centre of 
defence. England said: “Joey 
is willing, to play in an 
emergency. 

The ankle injuries to foe 
two goalkeepers need another 
couple of months to mend so 
Norman, of Hull City, and 
Dibble play on. 


target 

Malcolm Cooper, of 
Hayling Island ended the 
worid 300 metres shooting 
championships in Skoude, 
Sweden, yesterday as he began 
last week — with a record- 
breaking worid championship 
(our Shooting Correspondent 
writes). He finished by taking 
the standard rifle three po- 
sitions tide with 586 out of 
600, three points better than 
his own worid record, and 
four points in front of the 
holder, Harald Stcnvaag, of 
Norway. 

This brought Cooper’s total 
haul for the week to two worid 
championships, three new 
world records and two records 
equalled. The world 
championships continue in 
Suhi, East Germany, next 
week. . 

Korean split 

North Korea yesterday an- 
nounced it would boycott foe 
Asian Games opening in Seoul 
later this month. The official 
Rodong Sinmiin newspaper 
accused South Korea of plan- 
ning to use the games to 
perpetuate the division be- 
tween North and South Ko- 
rea. “We should not be 
involved in things helpful to 
national division, and there- 
fore, we will not participate in 
the !0fo Asian Games sched- 
uled in Seoul,” the North 
Korean Central News Agency 
quoted foe paper as saying. 



Cooper? world record 

Lloyd out 

Andy Lloyd, foe Warwick- 
shire and former England 
batsman, will not play a pim 
this season. He broke his nose 
on his last appearance in July 
and is now recovering from a 
back injury. Last season he 
missed a number of matches 
with a broken finger and has 
not completed a full season 
since he was struck on the 
head by a bouncer from 
Malcolm Marshall during his 
Test debut against West In- 
dies at Edgbaston in 1984. 

On the mend 

Jacques Laffite, the French 
Formula One driver, who was 
seriously injured in the British 
Grand Prix on July 13, leaves 
a Paris clinic this week after 
seven weeks of freatmem. 
Laffite, at 42 the oldest driver 
in foe worid championship, 
will be unable to walk for two 
more months. 


Dittmar back 

Chris Dittmar, of Australia, 
foe former world No 2, re- 
turned to top squash after 
being out for a year through 
injury by winning his qualify- 
ing match yesterday in foe 
Hong Kong open tournament. 
Dittmar was at one time 
considered foe only player 
capable of defeating Jahangir 
Khan, of Pakistan, foe worid 
champion. 

Double Dutch 

Cees van der Velden, the 
Dutch powerboat driver, has 
claimed his second victory of 
the Formula One powerboat 
season in Toledo, Ohio>, foe 
final event of the worid series. 
Van der Velden took foe lead 
wben Barry Woods, of the 
United States, nosedived at 
full speed on foe rough course. 
Gene Thibodaux, who 
crashed on Saturday, could 
not compete in the main event 
but his position as world 
champion is already assured. 

Hulbertwin 

Mike Hulbert won foe 
Memphis golf classic by one 
stroke over Joey Sindelar, his 
boyhood friend, with a final 
round of 69, and a final total 
of 280, eight under par. It was 
Hulbert’s first victory in two 
years on the PGA Tour. 
Hulbert started to play golf 
with Sindelar wben they were 
children and continued to do 
so throughout their secondary 
school years. . 


Bate: harsh lesson 

Ballesteros. “He has a very 
good swing, and he is strong in 
every department All he 
needs now is experience.” 

That was a generons tribute 
indeed in the _ fight of 
Ballesteros’s association with 
foe young Spanish prodigy, 
Jose-Maria OlazabaL More- 
over, Olazabal won foe triple 
crown of amateur golf, the 
British Boys, Youths, and 
Amateur Championships, 
whereas Raker’s cre denti a ls , 
from a brief amateur career, 
were highlighted by his victory 
in foe Brabazon Trophy test 
year, and subsequent selection 
for foe Walker Cup. 

“I was dropped from foe 
singles in foe Walker Cop, 
although I won two points out 
of three partnering Peter 
McEvoy,” said Baker. “I'm 
sure that Charlie Green, the 
captain, had good reasons, bat 
missing that chance of a 
lifetime in foe singles tipped 
my decision to turn 
'professional. 

“I stayed an amateur at foe 
start of this season to tty and 
win the British tide, hot 1 was 
beaten by McEvey early on. I 
needed a new challenge be- 
cause I felt that every time I 
teed op in amateur golf 1 was 
expected to do wdL Not even 
the greatest golfers in the 
world can win all the time.” 

Bate received permission, 
with the assistance of an 
mxderstanding headmaster, to 
leave school six months early 
in 1S8S to conc en tr a te on his 
golf. He first picked np a dob 
at foe age of four when his 
fathe r, who now jointly mas a
