- Mr Neil Kinnock yesterday 
held put the prospect of a 
return to the interventionist 
political and economic poli- 
cies of the 1960s and 1970s as 
he laid the , prop osals for a 
future Labour government be- 
fore the TUC annual con- 
ference in Brighton. 

Union leaders and delegates 
welcomed his call for a re- 
newed consensus embracing 
all sides of industry to tackle 

' In making jobs his top 
priority. Mr Kinnock was 
rewarding the union chiefs for 
their efforts this week to 
smooth his path to Downing 
Street by striving to cloak their 
-differences beneath a public 
display of unity. 

But in a key passage of his 
address to the conference,

people, that government exists up his rhetoric by promising pjmnhS TrSSininn

A tough, uncompromising 
Mr Kinnock savaged the 
Conservatives as the “archi- 
tects of the country’s 'ruin’’ 
and derided them as the 
“enemies of consensus*, 
contemptuous of give -and 
take and eager to impose their 
win on others. 

He said; “For the sake of the

Although the massive res- 
cue operation involving mili- 
tary helicopters and divers 
was still continuing more than 
36 hours after the liner sank 
with a total of 1,234 pas- 
sengers and crew on board, 
Soviet experts held out scant 
hope for any those still un- 
' accounted for being found 
alive. The liner is now lying at 
a depth of 153 ft. 

Details of the grim casualty 
toll were given at a special 
news conference by Mr Leo- 
nid Nedyak. Deputy Minister 
at the Maritime Fleet Min- 
istry. He said that the 50- year- 
old-liner had sunk within 15 
minutes after hitting a Soviet 
caTgo ship at 11.15 pm on 
Sunday night. 

Of the 836 people plucked 
alive from the sea 29 were 
taken to hospital. 

Mr Nedyak held out little 
hope that any more of the 
passengers or crew would be 
rescued alive. He said that to 
his knowledge.ihe last known 
survivor had been rescued on 

Monday evening. 

Although an official govern- 
ment commission headed by a 
member of the Politburo was

The paper carried the first 
graphic accounts of the rescue 
operation in which hundreds 
of people were dragged from a 
sea thick with oil. 

Irvcsriya, which last year 
carried an article attacking the 
drinking habits of senior So- 
viet naval personneLincluding 
navigators and captains, said 
in its report: “This tragedy 
once again sets one thinking 
about the monstrous price of 
human negligence.” 

The paper quoted the 
helmsman of the liner as 
telling how he had gone on 
watch at the exact moment of 
the collision. 

“When we set out from 
Novorossiysk everything was 
normal. Then we saw the 
cargo ship for away. The duty 
officer began to call it on the 
radio,” he said. 

“We took its bearing and 
realized that the ship was to 
cross our path. After a certain

light when the ex-MIS intelli-

Detectives searching for the

ground floor window on Mon- 
day night, described them as 
“vicious criminals". 

The wealthy couple, then- 
cook, chauffeur, and nurse 
were seized as they sat down 
to dinner. They were bound 
and bundled upstairs into 
three of the bedrooms. There 
they were strangled and fires 
started in each of the rooms.

The Government has been 
looking ax how widely the un-

Drag Trafficking Offences Art 
should be used and is expected 
to go for an unlinuted applica- 
tion, subject only to the prose- 
cution's discretion. 

It is planning to finalize its 
derision during the next few 
weeks and announce details at 
the forthcoming Conservative 
Party conference. The Drug 
Trafficking Offences Act, 
which comes into force at the 
end of this month, gives courts 
the power to confiscate pro- 
ceeds of crimes committed 
within the past six years. • 

The Government is consid- 
ering whether to apply the 
Act’s new and for-reaching 
offence of “laundering” to all 
other crimes. There is some 
support for this within the 
Government but a final de- 
cision has yet to be made.

With other offences now 
likely to come within the am- 
bit of the law — fraud, theft, 
dishonesty, large-scale rob-

crime — the burden of proof 
will be shifted slightly back to 
the prosecution, which will 
have to show that a specific 
sum of money came from the 
offence in question before 
confiscation can be ordered. 

The courts' powers would

Police move into riot 
area to recruit blacks 

By Craig Scion 

when experienced local offi- 

West Midlands police have 
launched a drive to recruit 
black officers in Handsworth, 
Birmingham, a year after riot- 
ing in the inner city area left 
two people dead and damage 
estimated at £16 million. 

A police recruiting van 
moved into Handsworth yes- 
terday and tomorrow will be at 
Villa Cross, the flashpoint for 
last September's riots. 

Chief Inspector Keith New- 
ell, the force's recruiting offi- 
cer. said it was a coincidence 
that the campaign had started 
on the eve of the first anniver- 
sary of the riots, when white, 
black and Asian youths fire- 
bombed and looted more than 
30 shops. 

The Handsworth campaign 
is part of a long-term drive 
throughout (he West Mid- 
lands, which has doubled the 
number of applications to join 
the police from black and 
Asian people. 

The inspector said there had 
been no trouble last week 

cers delivered 8J)00 recruiting 
leaflets to houses in 
Handsworth, where an es- 
timated SO per cent of the 
population is Asian or black. 

Tension between local black 
youths and the police in- 
creased only a month ago 
during a series of drugs raids 
in the area. 

Chief Inspector Newell said: 
“If there was going to be 
trouble then I think last week 
would have been the week, 
when the team were out 
delivering leaflets, but there 
was not a single problem. We 
are very pleased with the way 
it is going.” 

Only about 105 of the 
force's 6.500 officers are from 
the ethnic population, but the 
number of formal applications 
from black and Asian people 
to become West Midlands 
officers has increased from 
only 79 in 1982 to 239 this 
year. The number of inquiries 
this year has doubled to 719 

out any of the allegations, but 
-the questions which some 
Labour councillors want to 
raise with him are understood 
to involve the alleged unau- 
thorised offering of lifts in a 
police helicopter and a holiday 
he shared with a man they 
claim had a minor conviction. 

However, other members of 
the authority believe the affair 
to be nothing less than an 
attempt to discredit the chief 
constable as part of his long 
running feud with the Left. 

The dilemma facing the 2 A 
members of the Labour group, 
who meet tomorrow, is that 
any derision to proceed with 
formal questioning of Mr 
Anderton, at the next full 
. meeting of the authority on 
September 19. will hardly be 
conducive to improving mo- 
rale among the 7,000 officers 
and men in England's largest 
provincial police force. 

Mr David Moffat, acting 
chairman of the authority, 
said yesterday that the emer- 
gency meeting of the Labour 
group was called after an 
approach by some senior offi- 
cers to Mr Tony McCardell. 
the Labour group leader, over 
their concern about morale. 

Mr Moffat said: u ln the 
post-Stalkerera morale on the 
force does worry me. If senior 
officers have made representa- 
tion to the leader of the 
Labour group I think they 
need to be looked at. 

“It is a question of what we 
can do to improve matters.” 

Mr Moffat and Mr 
McCardell, a left winger, will 
be rivals for the chairmanship 
of the authority when elec- 
tions for the post are held at 
the meeting later this month. 

Miners 1 strike bill 

Counties demand payi 

Angry county 
authorities are pressing for 
payment of money they say is 
outstanding for the aid given 
lo the Derbyshire force during 
the miners' strike. 

Lincolnshire has threatened 
to stop helping other police 
forces in times of emergency 
and Devon and Cornwall has 
derided to take legal action. 

Derbyshire admitted yes- 
terday it owed money in 
various quantities to nine of 
the 30 authorities which gave 
aid. “We still owe Cambridge 
£530.000. Merseyside 
£179.000 and West Midlands 

Derbyshire decided at the 
start of the dispute that the 
cost of policing was a govern- 
ment responsibility and 
should be borne by iL In the 
end. a Derbyshire spokesman 
said yesterday, it paid the bills 
only after the Government 
had decided to meet the lion's 
share of them. 

The total cost of policing the 
dispute in Derbyshire was 
£31.6 million, of which 

By Peter Evans, Home Affairs Correspondent 
police £21.6 million was the bill for done to remedy the injustice, 
aid by other authorities. 

The issue for Devon and 
Cornwall and Lincolnshire is 
now the interest outstanding 
on the sums that police 
authorities received. “We 
don't include lost interest 
because there was never any 
agreement to pay it," a Derby- 
shire spokesman said. 

Mr Michael Kennedy, 
chairman of Lincolnshire 
County Council's police 
committee, said yesterday that 
Derbyshire had “steadfastly 
and quite deliberately refused 
to pay". Although the bulk of 
the account, £550.000, was 
eventually settled after the 
intervention of the Home 
Office, the authority had been 
left with a £50.000 bill in costs 
and lost interest caused by the 

Mr Kennedy has written to 
Mr Douglas Hurd, the Home 
Secretary, complaining about 
Derbyshire's “obduracy and 
unreasonable refusal to pay 
within a reasonable time" and 
asking if anything could be 

He has told Mr Hurd: “If 
nothing can be done this time, 
will you please change the 
rules of the game for the 
future, so that the kind of 
political posturing Derbyshire 
indulged in does not have this 
unfortunate effect in the fu- 
ture. Otherwise, I am afraid 
that authorities like Lincoln- 
shire will be most reluctant to 
see mutual aid provided again 
to authorities like 

Devon and Cornwall said 
yesterday it received £4.5 mil- 
lion last September as the 
main payment and another 
£250,000 in June for admin- 
istrative expenses. But it was 
now claiming £650,000 in 
outstanding interest charges. 

The police authority is to 
seek a judicial review in the 
High Court of the Home 
Secretary's decision. 

The Association of County 
Councils said yesterday it was 
supporting a number of coun- 
ties pursuing the issue.

The mother of missing es- 
tate agent Susannah Lam- 
' pi ugh yesterday said she was 
devastated when people began 
lo speculate that the headless 
body found in East Sussex 
might be her missing daugh- 

“When the police said they 
were 99 per cent certain it was 
not her [ could hardly contain 
my relief,” Mrs Diana Lamp- 
lugh said. 

Mrs Lamplugh was speak- 
ing after appearing on the 
Thames Television afternoon 
programme. Daytime, with 
her other daughter, Tamsin, 
and Susie's boyfriend, Mr 
Adam Leegood. 

The Lamplugh family an- 
nounced yesterday that they 
will set up a trust to teach 
women how to be more assert- 
ive and aware of the dangers 
they face in the 1980s. 

“I thought I had given my 
daughter everything she need- 
ed to get on in today’s society, 
but I feel I may have failed 
leaching her how to survive,” 
Mrs Lamplugh said. 

“I am hoping the trust will 
give advice to young women 
on how they can cope. Then, 
whatever the outcome of this 
dreadful situation, something 
positive can result.” 

Detectives investigating the 
murder of the headless torso 
in East Sussex believe missing 
pieces of the body could have 
been dumped in different 
parts of Southern England. 
They say more than two dozen 
phone calls about curtain 
material and a nightdress used 
to wrap the remains may help 
them to identify the body. 

Macreadie call on 
pay upsets staff 

By Tim Jones 

Militant supporter Mr John their members, and remain on 

Macreadie, fighting to keep his 
job as genera] secretary of 
Britain's largest Civil Service 
union, has caused another 
dispute by demanding two 
senior staff should take pay 
cuts of more than £80 a week 

His instruction was strongly 
resisted by the two men and 
thrown out by the union's 
moderate-controlled national 

The men are Mr John Ellis, 
deputy general secretary of the 
Civil and Public Services 
Association, and Mr John 
Raywood, the treasurer. 

Mr Macreadie defeated Mr 
Ellis in an election to become 
genera] secretary but has not 
been allowed to take up the 
position until an inquiry into 
alleged branch voting irregu- 
larities is over. 

After his -victory^ • Mr 
Macreadie said be* would fall 
into line with Tendency pol- 
icy, which says union leaders 
should not be paid more than 

his £16,000 salary rather than 
accept the £22,000 general 
secretary salary. 

Both Mr Ellis and Mr 
Raywood earn about £20,000 
a year and Mr Macreadie tried 
to insist that their salaries 
should fall into line with his. 

But a representative of the 
two men’s union, the Associ- 
ation of Professional, Exec- 
utive, Gerical and Computer 
Staff, said Mr ‘Marreadie's 
demand was unacceptable. 

His view was endorsed by 
the moderate majority on the 
CPSA executive who are in 
dispute with Mr Macreadie. 
That bitterness has been 
consolidated by the 
executive's decision to bar 
him from the. TUC Congress 
at Brighton, where his vote 
would have: been decisive in 
committing* the ~ 30-strong 
union delegation to vote in 
favour of left wing motions.

Shorts of Belfast which is at 
the centre ofa dispute over the 
flying of “loyalist” flags, has 
signed an agreement with a 
US-owned company to pro- 
duce a new commuter airliner. 

The agreement finalized at 
the Farn bo rough Air Show 
yesterday, is with the de 
Havilland Aircraft Company 
of Canada - owned by Boe i ng 
— and came as Sir Philip 
Foreman, Shorts chairman, 
admitted such deals were in 
jeopardy because of the Ulster 
troubles. . 

The memorandum ot 
understanding covers the joint 
12-month study of potential 
markets, aircraft configura- 
tion and engine alternatives. It 
should lead to a joint produc- 
tion programme. 

Both companies said they 
had no preconceived ideas 
and the new plan could re- 
place existing aircraft such as 
de Havilland’s Dash 7 and 
Dash 8 and Shorts 330 and 
360 airliners. 

Sir Philip said that invest- 
ment decisions would have to 
await completion of the study, 
but the deal would give addi- 
tional security to the 
company's 7,000 workers. The 
companies are looking for at 
least one other partner. 

Mr William Boggs, de 
Havilland's chairman, said: 
**We are both heavily in- 
volved in modernization of 
our facilities and are both 
looking to the next generation 
of commercial regional 

“The design of this airplane 
will be driven by. the needs of 
the passenger - comfort, 
speed and low ticket prices.” 

Sir Philip added: “By joint 
forces we hope to bring a new 
aircraft to tire market with an 
enhanced competitive 

The flying of “loyalist” flags 
and regalia inside Shorts fac- 
tory has been condemned by 
Roman Catholics in Northern 
Ireland and the US. 

Sir Philip said most of the 
bunting had been removed 
and the remainder would go in 
the next few days. 

“It is terribly important for 
the. future of Shorts because 
people raise doubts about 
whether they should deal with 
us while we participate in 

“We me trying to run an 
aircraft factory, not a political 
propaganda machine. 

: “It is very difficult to' ex- 
plain to customers why the 
flags and bunting are up. ' 

Sir Philip said that Shorts 
did not discriminate between 
Roman Catholics and Prot- 
estants. “We were criticized a 
.few years ago for not having 
enough Ouholics in the 
workforce and we have gone 
out of our way lo stimulate 
interest from the Catholic 
community in working for 

“We have a very strict 
system of interviewing and 
screening so that we do em- 
ploy the most capable of 

“But because we have taken 
on increasing numbers of 
Catholics we are being accused 
by the Protestants of reversed 
discrimination, which is also 
utterly untrue. We are com-

Waste dumping 

Legal delays stall import of hazardous cargo 

Britain's largest importer of 
toxic waste is facing weeks of 
legal areument over a ship- 
ment of 3,500 tons of indus- 
trial sludge salvaged from the 
North Sea. 

Cory Waste Management, 
of Thurrock, Essex, handles 
half the 26.000 tons of hazard- 
ous waste imported every year 
but the future of its trade 
could rest with the fate of the 
shipment now in two barges in 

East coast authorities have 
adopted delaying tactics to 
keep the waste, which con- 
tains 2 per cent arsenic and 
10 per cent lead, out of the 
country while the Dutch are 
anxious to export it to Britain. 

The Dutch water authorities 
spent three weeks and 
£700,000 salvaging the waste 
from the Danish coaster, Olaf, 
after she sank off the coast of 
Holland in July on her way to 
Britain from a chemical fac- 
tory in Denmark. 

But the London Waste 
Regulation Authority and Es- 
sex. Sussex and Kent county 
councils have taken the un- 
usual step of requiring a 
licence before the waste can be 
unloaded. Weeks of consulta- 
tion will be needed before 
such a licence can be granted. 

The stand has been in- 
stigated by Essex County 
Council. Two-thirds of all the 
toxic waste imported into 
Britain is dumped in Essex. 
The county's consumer and 
public protection officer, Mr 
John Harrison, said the coun- 
cil felt it had a raw deal and 
that enough was enough. 

But Mr Harrison's Principal 
Scientific Officer. Mr Jim 
Lionnel. said the shipment 
was not particularly dan- 
gerous. “1 would pick it up 
with my hands, but I would 
not eat it”, he said. 

Essex County Council's po- 
sition appears to be a result of 
increasing pressure from

Nirex beats the blockade 

By Trad! McIntosh 

Anti-nuclear protesters 
were last night strengthening 
their blockades at four pro- 

Earth and Greenpeace and 
comes at a time when the 
county is seeing protests over 
the possibility of a Nirex 
nuclear dumping site at 
Bradwel] -on-Sea. 

Cory Waste Management's 
general manager. Mr Jeremy 
Leathers, said that before the 
Olaf sank. the shipment had 
not required a licence and it 
was a matter of debate 
whether it did now. 

His company turns the 
waste into a safe concrete-like 
sludge which is then dumped 
at its landfill site in Mucking. 
Essex. “After three days you 
can walk on the material, after 
2S days you can put a 16-ton 
truck on it", he said.

of the Ocean Transport and 
Trading group which was the

Nirex. the government unclear 
waste agency, slipped through 
an unguarded entrance at 
Elstow, Bedfordshire, under 
cover of darkness. 

The Nirex contractors drove 
through the site’s main en- 
trance unnoticed on Monday 
night, a few hours after the 
protesters' daily 12-hour vigil 
ha d ended, and set up a 
drilling rig and other equip- 
ment on the 480-acre site. 

Surprised protesters found 
the equipment at 6 am yes- 
terday, when they arrived to 
set up the morning blockade. 

Spokesmen for the four 
main anti-unclear dumping ac- 

tion groups at Elstow, 
Killinghobae in Humberside, 
Fulbeck, Lincolnshire and

Mr Jerry Fitch, chairman .of

Nirex would eventually get on 
to the site after e “two-week

He raid Nirex engineers 
would be allowed to drill on the 
site only between 7 am and 7 
pm, according to a special 
government development

Engineers hoped to start 
drilling at Elstow this -week, 
and as soon as possible at the

Bat if protesters prevented

Tourism likely to 
fall this year 

By Derek Harris, Industrial Editor 
American tourists . may be the Chernobyl disaster, al- 

on their way back to Britain, 
but 1986 is unlikely to be as 
good a year for tourism as the 
last, with revenue dropping by 
at least £200 million. 

The British Tourist Author- 
ity yesterday reported that 
198S was the best year yet for 
British tourism. Overseas vis- 
itors were up by 6 per cent to 
14.S million and- their spend- 
. mg rose by 16 per cent to 
■ £6,700 million. Tbaj included 
about £1,000 million in air 
• fores for British airlines. . 

There were further gains in 
the first three months of this 
year, but then the influx of. 
American visitors started to 
fade, they said. 

The number of American 
tourists fell by 17 per cent in 
‘ Aptir and 40 per tent in May. 
June figures were not expected - 
to be much better. 

though some commentators 
believe the foil in the buying 
power of the American dollar 
has also been a crucial factor. 
The number of cancellations 
by Americans was unprece- 
dented and particularly af- 
fected package tours, he said. 

“By June.tbere were signs of 
recovery, and -by July there 
was ample evidence that the 
downturn-had been temporary 
and that the American market 
wds progressively returning to 
near normal,” he said. 

The BTA believes that 
while the number of American 
visitors may fall by between 
lOand 20 percent for the year, 
a possible increase in other 
foreign vistors could offset 
some, if not all, of the drop. 

But a foil of at least £200 
million in spending during 

AwtatiSn; the big- : £W “ 

single soureetof tourists*' m *‘ ton, looked likely. 

for Britain, accounting for 24 ' 
per cent of total visitors, were 
estimated to be down between - 
20 and 30 per cent aver the 
first half of this year.- 
Mr Duncan Bluck, the BTA 
chairman, said this has meant 
for the first five months of the 
year overseas visitors were 
down by 3 per cent. He 
expected spending to be down 
by about 2 per cent 
Mr Bluck blamed the after- 
math of terrorism scares and 

There was no sign that new 
worries over - -Libya - . had . 
effected" tourist bookings. Mr 
Bluck thought it was unlikely 
that the Government’s in- 
troduction of new entry visas 
would have any effect on 

He said a. 19 per cent 
increase in government fund- 
ing for the BTA this year 
should enable new initiatives 
to encourage areas with un- 
tapped potential. 

Jewish groups try to 
solve kosher dispute 

By John Young, Agriculture Correspondent 

! Jewish groups were at- 
tempting yesterday to defuse a 
i dispute over the right to sup- 
ply kosher meat to shops and 
•restaurants, which started 
when Lewis & Co, a firm of 
wholesale poulterers, recently 
obtained a High Court injunc- 
tion against the Schechita 
Board, the sole licensing 
.authority for the supply of ko^ 
-sher meaL 

’ ‘ The board tried to stop the 
firm from supplying a group of 
.butchers who had aligned 
themselves with a splinter org- 
anisation, the Federation of 

Last week, after foiling to 
get the injunction lifted, the 
board published au advertise- 
ment in the Jewish press list- 
ing those butchers which it. 
considered to be kosher. 

A spokesman for the Chief 
Rabbi said it was a matter of 
internal concern 

The dispute is understood 
to have no connection -until 
the continuing controversy 
over whether Jewish and Mus-

Prices of

House prices showed the

average rise stood at 13.6 per

month, the Halifax Building 
Society reports today. : 

•Over, the three months to

prices rose by. 3.7 per cent 
compared with 4.4 per cent 
during the three mouths to the 
end of July. 

The society states that its

a more accurate indicator than,

Price increases in the South- 
east and Greater London are 
steady at about' 20 per cent 
and 25 per ceqt respectively. 
Present . indications suggest 
house-price inflation will stay

Halifax economists have 
rejected suggestions that the 
recent high increases may be 
followed by a price collapse. 

In a paper examining house- 
price behaviour, they say that 
prices are determined by basic 
forces of -supply and demand. 
“There is noreason to forecast 
a major increase in (he supply 
of houses. Demand is driven 
by ability to pay, essentially by 
earnings and interest rales.” 

We are becoming a home- 
based society. People want 
more and better housing 

They conclude that a house 
is a good long-term invest- 
ment, although investing in a 
house purely Tor capita] gain is 
somewhat risky. 

“Buying a house to meet 
sensible present and future 
household needs is a wise 
decision. Of the 13 million 
home : owners in Britain, few 
regret their derision to buy. 
We doubt whether the picture 
will have changed by the end 
of this century.”

people are now on the waiting 
lists for that type of operation. 

“We have die time and the

Magistates urged 

By Frances Gibb, Legal Affairs Correspondent ... 
Magistrates are being urged that the convicted, yduth 

to impose tough custodial 
sentences on football hooli- 
gans and others convicted of 
serious crimes of violence or 
vandalism, or who try to 
impede the police in main- 
taining public order. 

An editorial in the latest 
issue of The Magistrate, jour- 
nal of the Magistrates’ Associ- 
ation, says that such offenders 
most expect immediate cus- 
todial sentences. 

Football hooligans aged 17 
years should “expect to lose 
their liberty” if convicted of 
violent offences causing injury 
to others or c riminal damage 
amounting to vandalism. Im- 
mediate custody of “a sub- 
stantial length” is appropriate 
for violent offences in such 
places as discotheques. 

Unless there are exceptional 
mitigating circumstances, 
youths aged 17 to 21 who are 
convicted of offences involv- 
ing violence towards the po- 
lice,- should be sentenced to a 
short detention centre order, 
the journal says. 

But if airy weapon has been 
used or : a disabling injury 
caused, or there is evidence 


“addicted to the use of 
violence”, a youth custody 
sentence may be inapp- 
ropriate. . 

' In such cases, if the injury 
amounts to grievous bodily 
barm, such as from a stabbing, 
a “longish” sentence may be 
necessary, the -journal reo-, 

Although those guidelines 
may not be appropriate for 
youths under 17, the juvenile 
courts are urged to consider 
the need for deterring dis- 
orderly juveniles as well as for 
reforming them. 

In a resolution to be debated 
at their annual meeting in 
London next month, mag- 
istrates are being called on to 
press for increased powers to 
impose tough sentences. 

The resolution, from the 
East Sussex branch of the 
Magistrates' Association, 
urges magistrates to impose 
sentences “which reflect pub- 
lic concern” >in view of the 
“continuing increase in vi- 
olent crime”. 

They are also being urged to 
call for a change in the law to 
provide more effective sen- 
tences for street soliciting.

Caring gorillas 

The gentle giants who eat celery, not children 

* ” 

By-Hugh Clayton ■ • 
‘Environment Correspondent 

The gorilla that stood guard 
over an injnred cMM was 
quickly enlisted yesterday as 
an antidote to explorers' gory 
tales about the creatures* 
ferocity and cruelty. 

Naturalists said there was 
nothing remarkable -about the 
uncannily human gesture -of 
Jam bo, a 25-stone father of 
12 . 

Mr John Burton, executive 
secretary of the Fauna jaA 
Flora Preservation Society, 
said that the chest-beating 
associated with gorillas was a 
Muff to deter attackers and not 
the prelude to an unprovoked 
assault. „ 

The animate feed on wBd 
celery and roots, not on chil- 
dren or big game hunters, to 

Sir David Attenborough, the 
television naturalist and an- 
other keen observer of the 
riant apes in their African 
hatuits, sahh “The image that 
has been foisted on the gorilla 
consists of the very things that 
we are ourselves.” 

Levan Merritt, aged nve* 
was described as “stable in

touched the boy, and it seemed 
to me that to was standing 
guard over him, protecting him 
from all the-ottor gorillas in 
the enclosure. 

“I had put Levan on the wall 
to look at the gorillas and 
turned away to pick up one. of 

the other children. He fen, and 
when 1 looked down.I thought 
he was dead.” 

Mr .Merritt who has three 
other children aged from four 
to right said yesterday that he 
accepted responsibility for the 

The Fauna and Flora 
Preservation Society, which 
has spent much of the year 
trying to detach bats from 
their association with vam- 
pires, used Jam bo’s gesture to 
fry to dispel the traditional 
image of the gorilla as a 

combination of King Kong, 
abominable snowman and 
monster of the swamps. 

Mr Burton, who last met a 
wild gorilla in the spring, said: 
“Under no circumstances does 
the behaviour of the animal hi 
Jersey surprise me. There is 
no evidence that they have 
ever been aggressive except in 
the defence of their yonng, 
much the same as the average 

h uman. ” 

There are several hundred 
gorillas in zoos while the wfld 
population of a few thousand is 
confined to parts of west 

"They are very, very 
peacable. It is v^ry impressive 
seeing them three metres away 
noshing on the wild celery and 
puffing up a few roots," he 

Most gorillas including 
Jambo are of the lowland type, 
and only about 400 mountain 
gorillas are left. 

Mr Barton said that assis- 
tance given to the government 
of Rwaada under the project 
tod helped to protect the 
mountain gorilla, which was 
“bigger, hairier and woollier” 
than its lowland cousin. 

He claimed that much of the 
gorilla's evil reputation 
stemmed from the desire of 
generations of big game bant- 
ers to convince admirers at 
home that they tod shot a 
ruthless adversary and not a 
frightened animal that wanted 
to be left in peace.

Fraud man 

had $3 ■: 


A man aged 84 who claimed 
thousands of pounds in false 
social security benefit by 
assuming names selected from 
Who’s Who and Country Life 
magazine received a sus- 
pended prison sentence from 
magistrates at Reading, Berk- 
shire, yesterday. 

Mr Peter Tooke, for the 
prosecution, said that when 
police caught the pensioner 
they were forced to charge him 
under an alias because be 
refused to reveal his identity. 

Mr Tooke said that David 
Greenaway, whose real name 
was believed to be John 
Graham, had assumed more 
than 80 different identities to 
claim false benefit around the 

Greenaway, who is partially 
deaf, paid £2.50 a time for 
copies of genuine birth certifi- 
cates and then claimed benefit 
under his new name, he said. 

“He lived in hotels and 
claimed supplementary bene- 
fit under various names relat- 
ing to the birth certificates. It 
would appear the DHSS have 
been aware of this gentleman's 
activities for a number of 
years and have compiled a file 
ou him. They believe he has 
something like 83 aliases 
around the country.” 

Mr Tooke told the court 
that the “Mr Greenaway" he 
claimed to be was ihe former 
High Sheriff of Kent Sir 
Derek Burdick Greenaway, 
aged 77. 

“Greenaway” pleaded 
guilty to a specimen charge of 
dishonestly obtaining £2,953 
from the Department of 
Health and Social Security by 
falsely claiming he was Hugh 
Ford, who is Sir Hugh Ford, 
an eminent research engineer. 

He also pleaded guilty to 
two specimen charges , of 
attempting to obtain cash by 
claiming his name was 
Greenaway and Alan Cotlerill: 

Mr Tooke said Greenaway 
was arrested at Reading last 
June after staying in a local 

“When he was searched a 
concealed pocket was found in 
his trousers and various birth 
certificates were recovered” 
The magistrates, who were 
shown three pages listing pre- 
vious convictions for decep-

Poll shows 
most want 
files open 

By 8 Staff Reporter 

More than 70 per cent of 
people believe they should be 
able to see their personal 
medical records, according to 
a MORI (Market & Opinion 
Research International) poll 
conducted for the Freedom of 
Information Campaign. 

Nearly as many, more than 
six out of ten, believe that they 
should be allowed to see their 
children’s school records, the 
campaign's poll shows. And 
well over half favour access to 
national insurance or social 
security records, as well as to 
employers' personal files. 

Only 4 per cent felt they 
should have no right to see 
personal files. Campaign lead- 
ers. backed by 146 MPs from 
all parties, hope a private 
member's Bill will become 
law. creating a statutory right 
of access lo a wide range of 
personal files. 

The survey was carried out 
on a sample of 1.909 people in 
272 political constituencies 
At a press conference in 
London. Mr Des Wilson, co- 
chairman or the campaign, 
said his organization was hop- 
ing that armed with such 
statistics. MPs would now be 
able to introduce a private 
member's Bill in the next 
session with a “really good 
chance of success”. 

Mr Wilson was particularly 
pleascd that 54 Conservative 
MPs were on the list. With a 
general election within the 
next 18 months or so. he was 
confident the Government 
would not oppose a move with 
such overwhelming public 

A draft Bill drawn up by the 
campaign, which failed lo be 
taken up by MPs in the last 
seassion of Parliament, would 
allow people to discover 
where their records are held, 
how to obtain them, and how 
to correct inaccuracies.

Kinnock pledge on 
million jobs wins 
standing tribute 

Scargill on council 

GCHQ rebels greeted 

Mr Neil Kinnock took as his 
theme the need to fight an 
immediate front-line battle 
against unemployment. The 
congress applauded him 
enthusiastically when he 
pledged that oh winning the 
next election, the incoming 
Labour Government would 
implement an emergency two- 
year policy to generate in that 
time a million jobs. 

The Leader of the Oppo- 
sition and Leader of the 
Labour Party said that the 
choices were work or waste, 
and the Labour movement 
chose work. That was the 
main objective. 

Mr Kinnock said that, at the 
same lime as its two-year 
emergency policy. Labour 
would shirt a five-year me- 
dium -term employment strat- 
egy of investment The aim 
would be to promote indus- 
trial reconstruction and mod- 
ernization so that the new jobs 
were sustained, and the new 
training used so that the 
economy was strengthened 
and made more competitive. 

Thirdly. Labour would set 
out a 10-ycar planning ho- 
rizon in order to establish the 
coherence and continuity of 
economic policy that this 
country and its workers and 
managers in every industry 
had needed for a long time. 

He was accorded a standing 
ovation for a speech in which 
he bitterly attacked the Gov- 
ernment as the architects of 
ruin who would bequeath to 
Labour an economy that in 
large pari had been laid waste. 

He devoted a lengthy pas- 
sage of his speech to a Labour 
Government's need for 
consensus, dismissing “sa- 
loon-bar revolutionaries" who 
detested it but were small in 
number and influence: and 
others small in number but 
great in power who despised 
consensus because it impeded 
their arbitrary power over 
people. They included Rupert 
Murdoch. Ian MacGregor.

Mr Kinnock said he was 
proud of the support, solidar- 
ity and help given by the trade 
unions in the three years he 
had been leader of the Labour

His tone, sombre yet deter- 
mined. was in tune with the 
strong sense of realism run- 
ning Through the debates. 

His promise of a new order 
for democratic socialism was 
coupled with tough words 
about the stance he would 
adopt towards those, in and 
out of the movement, who 
might try to frustrate his goals. 

Mr Kinnock said: “The 
Labourgovemment that I lead 
will be geared to gaining jobs 
above all else.

Mr Kinnock. who spoke for 
4-1 minutes, received the cus- 
tomary standing ovation from 
delegates. In his speech he also 
dampened expectations of a 
big spending boost under a 
Labour government. 

In a 'section aimed at a 
wider audience than his trade 
union supporters, he said that 
the proposed “single-minded 
attack on unemployment and 
under-investment” must in- 
evitably siphon off money 
that could be put to good use 

Emphasizing that he was 
issuing “no blank cheques, no 
rubber stamps". Mr Kinnock 
said: “I want everyone to 
understand that our absolute 
commitment to combating 
unemployment and decline 

must command great re- 
sources and that has direct 
implications for the use ot 
funds in every other area of 
public spending”. 

Today’s agenda 

Business today at the con- 
gress opens with a debate on 
education and continues with 
economic policy, which in- 
cludes the statutory minimum 

surely come, but to make the 
United Kingdom a better 
place to live in. 

That effort and activity had 
been generally valued, but no 
where more so than in the 
political ballots of the past 
year. These had been intended 
by the Government to divide 
and weaken the trade unions 
and to fulfil its hope and 
desire to cancel the political 
funds of oi$anized labour in 
Great Britain. 

“Well, it did not work out 
that way. did it?” he said. -to 

Millions had heeded the 
view- of Jack London that the 
non-poiilica! animal had no 
children, no parents, felt nei- 
ther heal nor cold and re- 
quired no shelter or warmth. 

Mr Kinnock said that there 
were millions of reasons for 
ridding Britain of the Tory 
Government They could see 
the reasons in the unemploy- 
ment queues, the hospitals, 
the housing waiting lists, 
among the families in poverty 
and pensioners in need. 

They could also see the need 
for getting rid of this Govern-

young people hit by education

when he died, buried himself. 

No lesson needed 
in democracy 

New policies ensured that the 
next Labour government 
would prevent employers 
from securing ex parte injunc- 
tions against trade unionists. 

There would be new rights 
of security for part-time work- 
ers and others in equally 
insecure jobs, such as women, 
who were the economic can- 
non fodder of Thatcherism. 
There would be new facilities 
for training and supporting 
and organizing trade 
unionists.The next Labour 
government would not be 
depriving workers of demo- 
cratic and common-law rights. 

Many thousands were doing 
the work of the unions with- 
out pay and in their own lime. 
They did not need lessons in 
democracy in any shape or 
form from the Conservative 
Party.If the Conservatives 
ever did have a vote at their 
party conference they would

was the sort of thing to expect 
from a party that sought to

ship to wine clubs and free 
copies of Jeffrey Archer books,

Africa and the Cayman said a lot about the 
Conservative Party that in 
seeking recruits they had to 
scrabble around the globe to

His support for ballots may 
surprise some of his members 
for during the bitter year-long 
miners' strike his national 
executive committee, whose 
policies he carried out, consis- 
tently rejected calls for the 
right to vote on the issue. 

In addition, bis executive 
committee removed from him 
the right to have a casting 
vote, thus ensuring that he did 
not have to comply with 
government rules stating that 
union officials must stand for 
re-election every five years.

More control needed 
for programmes 

The congress called on the 
general council to initiate 
more vigorous control of the 
Manpower Services Commis- 
sion community programme. 

A motion, moved by the 
Union of Construction, Allied 
Trades, and Technicians, was 
concerned that. many commu- 
nity programmes tad devel- 
oped in housing, construction 
and environmental works 
and. unless strictly controlled, 
might represent a substitute 
for foU-time, permanent jobs. 

The motion, carried unani- 
mously, called for a reduction 
in part-time employment on 
the programme and an in- 
crease in the proportion .of 
entrants taken on to full-time 

There should also be a big 

increase in the average wage of ■ 
£67 a week and an end to 
provisions on eligibility that 
discriminated against women.

would come.

The motion, he said, sought 
to restore trade nnion rights as

“They want and deserve the

achieved by trade onion pres- 
sure ami that pressure should 
be maintained imtil the pledge 
of restoration of full nnion

Mr Tom Sawyer, deputy 
general secretary of Nope,

Daring last year's con- 
ference season Neil Kinnock 
established his reputation for 
political courage. Nobody 
could have asked for more 
forthright attacks on Arthur 
Scargill's leadership of the 
miners or on the Liverpool 

This year Mr Khmock’s 
task is to establish his reputa- 
tion for political weight He 
lias to rise above the level of 
the embattled party leader to 
that of the potential Prime 

His speech to the TUC 
yesterday was a deliberate 
attempt to respond to that 
chal lenge. It amounted to a 
diplomatically phrased 
declaration of independence 

Authority call 
well received 

for the Labour Party from the 
trade unions. He was looking 
for a partnership and con- 
certed action, but a Labour 
government under his leader- 
ship would not be subservient 
to them. 

That is precisely the kind of 
assurance that the country 
wants from a Labour leader. It 
does not want a government 
that will rale in the interests of 
the muons or one 1 that will 
simply accept the national 
priorities dictated by nnion 
leaders who are not answer- 
able to the national electorate. 

In the past one of Labour's 
strongest riaima to office was 
that as the party closest to the 
onions it would stand the best 
chance of restraining the ir- 
responsible use of their power. 
But now that the country is no 
longer so in awe of the unions 
that claim has ceased to be 
relevant. The more that La- 
bour is able to establish a 
reasonable distance between 
itself and the unions, the tatter 
its electoral prospects will be. 

This is recognised by the 
unions themselves. Their con- 
fidence has been sapped by 

Spiritedness and 
clear sincerity 

their experience under Mrs 
Thatcher. They know that 
they are not loved and that 
their influence has dimin- 
ished. They are almost as 
desperate as Mr Kinnock for 
the return of a Labour govern- 

That probably explains why 
die conference gave such an 
enthusiastic reception to Mr 
Kinnock's assertion of author- 
ity. Another possibility is that 
the unions may not be con- 
vinced that be really means it 
or that he will be able to make 
it effective when the pressure 

In general terms be said 
with spirit and evident sincer- 
ity yesterday everything that 
be could reasonably have been 
expected to say. For that 
reason it was a notable speech. 
Bat it was only in general 
terms. The next test will be 
whether he is able to live op to 
these pronouncements. 

The TUC has this week 
given formal backing to his 
policy on industrial relations 
legislation, bat will be be able 
to avoid the Labour Party 
being stampeded into outright 
opposition to nuclear power, 
which the conference will be 
debating tomorrow? 

Speech proclaims 
economic realism 

Before Mr Kinnock rose to 
speak yesterday the con- 
ference was voting for in- 
creases in pensions and other 
social benefits that would 
impose an impossible burden 
on the economy. The logic iff 
his speech was that such 
demands wQl be ignored. Not 
because be was renouncing 
Labour's social conscience, 
but because be was proclaim- 
ing Labour's economic

IsJF* j* 1 ? 1 atteT npt to prevent 
one of the common human

described as “a landmark 1 in

Zuckerman, one of the sd- 
witirts involved, to a meeting 
« the Biomedical Science 
section of the British Associ- 
ation. in Bristol yesterday. 

He gave details of an inter- 
national trial organized by the 
World Health Organization, 
to halt liver cancer caused by 
hepatitis B virus. 

. The World Health Organ- 
ization was also recommend- 
ing to the Department of 
Health in Britain, and other 
governments, the routine 
vaccination of the population 
at risk of contracting hepatitis

cers, and to give immunity 
against Aids. 

More than 25 per cent of 
cancers are now thought to be 
induced by viruses. 

The new protective com- 
pounds share a common 
characteristic They have "be- 
come possible only because of 
advances in genetic engineer- 
ing. which makes it feasible 
for naiuraUy-occnrmg, or 
chemically-synthesized ver- 
sion molecules to be extracted 
from one organism and 
spliced imo another. 

In the case of hepatitis B, 
the scientists isolated a pro- 
tein molecule from the coating 
of the virus. That particle was 
enough to provide protection, 
because when introduced into 
people, it stimulated the de- 
fence system just as if infec- 
tion had occured with the 
whole virus. 

The molecule was incor- 
porated into the vaccine used 
normally to safeguard against 

Professor Zukerman, of the 
London School of Hygiene 
and Tropical Medicine, said 
primary liver cancer was one 
of the 10 most common 
cancers in the world, with 
more than 250,000 new cases 

each year. The average sur- 
vival time was only three to 
four months, and infection 
with thai virus resulted in up 
to 80 per cent of patients 
contracting cancer. 

The most startling predic- 
tion to the meeting came from 
Professor Bill Jarrett, of the 
University of Glasgow Vet- 
erinary School He forecast 
that a vaccine should be ready 
in three to four years to 
prevent Aids. 

Professor Jarrett pioneered 
the development of a vaccine 
that protected cats against 
leukaemia. He was invited 
into the international medical 
research effort on Aids be- 
cause his work on feline 
leukaemia involved a similar 
son of rcefrovirus to that 
which causes Aids. " 

One of the achievements in 
his animal work was that 
infected cats also recovered by 
treatment after infection. 

Scientists have been baffled 
how to approach vaccination 
against Aids because the dis- 
ease causes the body's im- 
mune system to collapse. 

There is nothing for a vaccina- 
tion to stimulate to produce 
the normal protection in the 
form of antibodies. 

Savage attack on 
doctors over 
birth ‘tragedies’ 

By Thomson Prentice, Science Correspondent 
Doctors may be putting home rather than in hospital, 


thousands of women and their 
babies at risk and wasting 
many mQCons of pounds by 
unnecessary child birth inter- 
ventions and procedures, Mrs 
Wendy Savage, the consultant 
obstetrician, said yesterday. 

Women «nd children were 
suffering because doctors were 
pursuing “an unattainable 
goal" of zero mortality in 
childbirth, she said. 

“That pursuit can cause 
tragedies for thousands of 
women who are subjected to 
unnecessary interventions" 


Mrs Savage addressing the Bristol conference yesterday. 
She says thousands of women and babies are at risk because 
of unnecessary interventions by doctors. 

There was no evidence that 
ultra-sound scanning saved 
babies' lives, tot as many as 
80 per cent of pregnant women 
were routinely scanned at a 
cost to the National Health 
Service of about £12^ million 
a year, she said. 

Mrs Savage, a leading cam- 
paigner for natural childbirth, 
is doe to return to her post in 
an east London hospital in two 
weeks after bring cleared of 
charges of professional incom- 
petence. She had been sus- 
pended for 15 months. 

She called yesterday for 
women to fight to remove the 
power that obstetricians held 
over them. Only 1 per cent of 
women now had their babies at 

but there was no evidence that 
hospital deliveries were safer, 
she said. 

By treating every pregnancy 
as an illness many obstetri- 
cians were destroying the "ex- 
citing a"d thrilling exper- 
ience" of chOdbirth, she said. 

Women were bring given the 
idea that childbirth was 
becoming more and more tech- 
nical with the result that 
doctors had almost complete 
power of deriding how and 
where the birth should take 

Mrs Savage called for an 
increased role for midwives, 
for changes in the training and 
appo intment of consultant 
obstetricians and for more re- 
search on the safety of differ- 
ent options for childbirth. 

Dr Linda Ward, of the 
Department of Mental Health 
at Bristol University, told the 
conference that the opinions of 
the medical profession "con- 
tinue to outweigh the views or 
rights of ordinary women" in 
fertility control. 

Scientific and technical ad- 
vances in reproduction and 
fertility control were being 
achieved outside the control of 
the women themselves, she 

Saving life 
must be 
fi costed’ 


New medical procedures 
aimed at saving lives should 
not be funded by the National 
Health Service until their 
costs and benefits have been 
properly evaluated, a leading 
researcher said yesterday {Our 
Science Correspondent 

Although the heart trans- 
plant programmes have been 
assessed, there are “enormous 
and Quite unacceptable gaps" 
in many other medical areas. 
Mr Marlin Buxton said. 

"It is not acceptable any 
longer to ignore information 
on costs or benefits where 
such information exists and to 
revert to emotional appeal, 
rhetoric or political exped- 
iency," he said. 

Mr Buxton, senior research 
fellow in health economics at 
Brunei University, led a study 
published last year imo the 
heart transplant programmes 
in Britain. 

The study showed that sur- 
gery costs have fallen substan-

: Threat of 
rabies for 

By Our Science 

Britain could face an epi- 
demic of rabies that would 
spread through the country at 
a rate of more than a mile a 
week, an expert said yester- 

Although the "particularly 
horrifying disease" would ap- 
parently vanish after its first 
wave, it would re-emerge in 
some areas every six years. 
.Professor James Murray said. 

' The rabies epidemic sweep- 
ing through Europe has effec- 
tively reached the northern 
coast of Fiance, mostly spread . 
by foxes, he said. Predicting ! 
that it will probably affect | 
Britain, Professor Murray 

"The resulting problem will 
'be particularly serious here 
because of our high density of 
foxes, both urban and nual, 
and domestic dogs and cats." 

The disease would probably 
enter Britain through the il- 
legal importation of an af- 
fected animal, he said. If the 
disease was introduced in 
Southampton it might reach 
as far north as Manchester in 
'about three-aud-a-half years. 
Professor Murray, director of 
the Centre for Mathematical 
Biology at Oxford University, 

; One method of stopping the 
spread would be by creating a 
.rabies “break" ahead of the 
front, scattering meat impreg- 
nated with rabies vaccine in 
fox territory. That would re- 
duce the unprotected fox 
population to a level below the 
threshold for an epidemic to 
exist, he said. 

Professor Murray's depart- 
ment calculated the rate of 
spread of the disease by 
analysing the numbers of 
foxes in Britain. The mam 
epidemic front would move at 
speeds of about 100 
kilometres (62fc miles) a year, 
he said.

Man-made pollution of die

return to the days when the 
hippopotamus roamed north

The evidence that those

complete cycles of temperature 
chang e m the past two million 
years, each climatic cycle last-

While the cause for the 
cycles was uncertain, changes 
in the Earth's orbit might have

Pilot had heart attack 
before mid-air crash 
which claimed 85 lives 

The pilot of the small plane 
which ploughed into the rear 
of an Aero Mexico airliner on 
Sunday near herchad suffered 
a heart attack just minutes 
before the mid-air collision 
that took 85 lives. 

Mr Bill Gold, spokesman 
for the Los Angeles County 
Coroner, said that the heart 
attack “definitely” happened 
before the single-engine Piper 
plane struck the DC 9, which 
was about to land at Los 
Angeles airport. 

“He had suffered an occlu- 
sive coronary artery disease — 
or heart attack — within 
minutes before his death, 
which is to say it happened 
after he took off from Tor- 
rance airport (a suburb of Los 
Angeles) and before the 
collision,” Mr Gold said. 

Mr William Kramer alleged 
pilot of the small plane 

From Ivor Davis, Los Angeles 

“We don't know the exact 
liming or severity of the attack 
or whether it rendered him 
unconscious. He did not the of 
a heart attack: death was due 
to multiple traumas suffered 
in the crash”. 

Although the identity of the 
pilot and his two women 
passengers was not disclosed. 
The Los Angeles Times re- 
ported yesterday that the man 
at the control of the Piper was 
believed to have been Mr 
William Kramer, aged 53, a 
company executive who lived 
with his family of five in the 
Los Angeles suburb of Palos 

He. his wife. Kathleen, and 
her sister. Caroline, were be- 
lieved to have died in the 
crash. Mr Kramer was an 
experienced pilot who had 
logged 230 hours of flying time 
in five years. 

The death toll stood at 8S 
yesterday. That included 58 
passengers and six crew on the 
DC 9. the three occupants of 
the Piper and 18 people in the 
Los Angeles suburb of Cerri- 
tos. where the airliner and the 
Piper fell. 

Fifteen of the dead were 
unearthed on Monday night 
from the charred rubble of one 
devastated home. They were 
all attending a weekend party. 

Another 15 people were 

listed as “officially missing”. 

Federal officials said that it 
appeared that the Piper broke 
off the DC 9's horizontal sta- 
bilizer — a section of the tail 
gear crucial to controlling the 
airliner. It then nosedived 
into the houses below. The 
Piper crashed into an empty 

What has made the search 
difficult for rescuers is that the 
bodies, many of them dis- 
membered, were scattered 
over a very large area. 

Yesterday the traffic con- 
troller in charge of the board at 
Los Angeles airport at the time 
of the collision ’ was taking 
what officials term “a routine 
drug test”. - 

The controller has said that 
be did not see any blip on bis 
radar screen indicating that 
the Piper may have strayed 
into an area dearly defined as 
a path used by jets about to 
land. However a transponder, 
a device which sends out 
signals to controllers, was 
found near the mangled 
wreckage of the Piper. It was 
turned on. 

There was also speculation 
here that the pilot of the Piper 
may have wandered into the 
airliners path while the 
controller was warning off a 
second small plane from the 
DC 9's landing path. 

On the slow train to Jaffna 

Fragile link opens up again 

In March. I took what 
proved to be the last train 
from Colombo, the Sri Lan- 
kan capital, to this, the capital 
of the Northern Province. The 
day after 1 travelled the train 
was blown up. and the vital 
link between the south and the 
rebel-infested northern penin- 
sula was cul 

From then onwards, the 
train travelled only as far as 
Vavouniya. the last outpost of 
Sinhalese settlement before 
the country becomes wholly 
dominated by the Tamils, the 
country's minority ethnic 

Though the rail link is vital 
for Tamils living in the Jaffna 
Peninsula, it has also been a 
useful way for the Sri Lankan 
.Army to move men and 
equipment to the north. So 
though the local inhabitants 
promptly blamed the Army 
for having blown up the rails, 
it seems much more likely that 
the Tamil guerrillas them- 
selves did iu 

On the day last week that I 
was due to go north again, the 
authorities announced that for 
the first time the train would 
continue beyond Vavouniya. 
Likely to cut several hours of 
jolting bus travel off the 
journey, it seemed a good 

When I went to buy a ticket 
the day before, however, no 
one seemed to have told the 
clerks about the extension to 
the journey. I had to wait until

could pay the fare to 
Kilinochchi, the last good- 
si/od town before the pen- 

The train drew out 
promptly at 5.50 pm. It was 
packed. Small boys selling 
buttles of soda, buns, biscuits 
or fruit wandered the aisles. 
There was a brisk trade in 
refreshing coconuts. 

A man opposite told me he 
was a merchant seaman, going

Our hags were searched

At Medawachchiya, about 
30 miles short of Vavouniya, 
the train halted for a long, long

by, once high and once low 
enough to see the faces of the 
young soldiers pointing their

master had heard a distant 
bang on the rails and was not 
taking the chance of sending 
the train on until be was sure 
the track was dear. 

After an hour or so the 
driver blew his whistle, and we 
drew on to Vavouniya - to be 
told that this was the terminus 
again: the terrorists had that 
morning severed the line in 

two places just outside the 
town, blowing up culverts to 
make sure nothing moved 
farther north that day. 

We boarded buses that the 
authorities efficiently had 
waiting there for us. On my 
bus there were 40 seats and 75 

There was no air condition- 
ing. and passengers long gone 
had taken away the fans for 
souvenirs or to furnish their 
own homes. It got quite warm 
during the next six hours. 

Evidence of the increasing 
bitterness of the Tamil insur- 
gency accumulated as the bus 
lurched and bumped over 
grossly potholed roads to the 
north. Beside the railway track 
on our left, we passed the 
rusting remains of a train 
blown up a year ago. which 
had been carrying soldiers. 
Thirty of them died.

has become a ghost town. Hie

to continue its journey, and

no one there. Empty plastic 
sheeting flapped loudly in the 

The inhabitants had pre- 
ferred to move out rather than 
stay to become victims of the 
crossfire between the young 
gunmen of the Tamil sepa- 
ratist movements and the Sri 
Lankan Army, which had 
established a big encampment 

At Elephant Pass, the nar- 
row isthmus isolated among 
the sail pans through which all 
road and rail traffic to Jaffna 
must go. all the men were 
made to get down in order to 
have their credentials chec- 
ked. It was done, the travellers 
said, much more politely than 
it has often been. 

As the bus rolled through 
the checkpoint on to the 
peninsula, the atmosphere in- 
side lightened. It was apparent 
that there were to be no more 
checks. The Tamil passengers 
were now in their home 
territory, where the Army 
stays in its camps and the 
militants role. 

But arriving at Jaffna 
showed some of the cost to be 
paid for that security. Confin- 
ing the Army to its camps has 
its price. 

Jaffna has been declared to 
be more or less a free-fine 
zone, and shells and mortars 
whistling out of the Jaffna 
Fort have caused much dam- 
age. A bank manager was 
killed outside his bank in the 
heart of the town last week 
(and his fiancee committed 
suicide later) when a mortar 
fell in Hospital Road. A new 
bridegroom and his new fa- 
ther-in-law were killed the 
same day. 

The Ashoka Hotel, which 
stands a few hundred yards 
from the walls of the Fort, has 
been hit at least three times m 
recent months.

Sunk Soviet liner 
was used by Nazis 

Bremen (Reuter) — The 
Soviet passenger ship that 
sank in the Black Sea on 
Sunday was one of the best- 
known German linen built 
after the First World War and 
served for a time as a hospital 
ship for wounded German 

A spokesman for the 
Vuikan shipyard where it was 
built said yesterday that the 
17, 053-ton Admiral Nakh- 
imov. built in 1925 and 
originally called the Beilin, 
was used on the North At- 
lantic route between Bremen 
and New York in the 1920s 
and 1930s. 

“It was one of the most 
luxurious ships around at the 
time, extremely modem in its 
fittings and with space for 
1,200 passengers” he said. ; 

According to Soviet reports, 
the vessel sank with 1,234 
people on board after a col- 
lision with a Soviet cargo ship. 

After -the outbreak of the . 
Second World War the liner 
lay off the Norwegian coast 
and was used as a hospital ship- 

for German troops. On Feb- 
ruary I, 1945, while being 
used to transport refugees, it 
was hit by bombs and sunk. 

After the Soviet Union 
raised the wreck in 1948 and 
renamed it the Admiral 
Nakhimoy, it became the 
flagship of the Soviet Black 
Sea cruise fleet in the 1950s, 
on regular service between the 
ports of Odessa and Batumi. 

The shipyard spokesman 
said it was possible that the 
liner was used in the Nazis' 
Strength through Joy pro- 
gramme, which offered state- 
run holidays for good workers, 
but added that documents 
from this period were missing 

A spokesman for the West 
German maritime museum in 
the north German poet of 
Bremerhaven later confirmed 
that the Admiral Nakhimov 
had taken young Nazis on 
stale-run cruises.

David Lange, said yesterday 
he was seeking further infor- 
mation from Paris on the 
agents' detention after com- 
ments in Tahiti by M Chirac 
(Richard Long writes). 

“It is quite wrong to repre- 

sent that they have unlimited 
access and that there are no 
restrictions on Hao,” he said. 

“I have cabled Paris as to 
whether the remarks were 
actually made by M Chirac in 
those terms, drawing attention 
to the feet that if they were; 
they misrepresent the adjud- 
ication (by the Secretary-Gen- 
eral of the United bunions. 

“And if in feet they are 
living in the way outlined by 
M Chirac then Fiance is in 
breadr of the adjudication.” 

was ‘caught 

From Christopher Walker 

The Soviet authorities yes- 
terday defended their contin- 
ued detention of Nicholas 
Daniloff; the American corr- 
espondent held on suspicion 
of espionage, and denied 
Western charges that his arrest 
bad been stage-managed by 
the KGB after the seizure of a 
Soviet physicist in New York. 

- Mr Gennady Gerasimov, 
the Kremlin’s chief spokes- 
man, told a specially-con- 
vened news conference that 
the results of the investigation 
of Mr Daniloff would go to a 
Soviet court, which would 
dedde whether be would be 
charged and face triaL 

- “Daniloff was caught, un- 
fortunately for the journalistic 
community, red-handed: with 
a sealed envelope which con- 
tained secret documents. ’"Mr 
Gerasimov said. “I can stress 
that. lie has* ho complaints 
about bow he is treated.” - 

He said the incident should 
not affect US-Soviet relations; 

The arrest, which has an- 
gered the Reagan Administra- 
tion considerably, took place 
on Saturday, after Mr Daniloff 
went to the the outskirts of 
Moscow to meet a Soviet 
teacher whom be had known 
casually for several years. A 
package handed to him was 
later found to contain secret 
military material * 

Pressed by journalists in the 
large Foreign Ministry press 
centre, Mr Gerasimov denied 
that he was prejudging the 
case when he said that the US 
News & World Report corres- 
pondent had been “caught at 
the scene of the crime” He 
said: “He received secret 
information.This feet m itself 
accuses the man.” 

In an attempt to justify foe 
move, which Mr Daruloffs 
relatives are convinced .is 
linked directly to the arrest in 
New York of a Soviet em- 
ployee at the United Nations, 
Mr Gerasimov said; “If he 
goes . to meet somebody, 
and that somebody gives him 
an envelope ... he made the 
decision and you must take 
the consequences. 

A campaign to secure Mr 
Daniloff s early release -was 
launched here by the chair- 
man of US News & World 
Report. Mr Mortimer Zucker- 
man, who held a first round of 
talks with MrGeotgi Arbatov, 
a senior Kremlin adviser on 
US-Soviet relations!

Swiss find no 
gas threat 
in Cameroon 

From Gavin Bell 

Fears of another volcanic 
gas explosion in Cameroon 
recced cd yesterday when 
Swiss scientists said they had 
detected no unosoal activity in 
a volcanic lake near the scene 
of last month's disaster. 

The geologists were asked 
to survey Lake Worn after 
reports of gas emissions. 

On their return, a member 
of the Swiss team said they 
had found no danger signs. 
Traces of carbon dioxide and 
radons arid gases were 
present in the water, but only- 
in normal quantities.

Tanker armada runs Gulf gauntlet for Iran’s oil 

From Robert Fisk, Lank Island OH Loading Station, Iran 

At first you see only a heat 
haze and a rim of brownish 
smoke along the horizon. The 

radar gives it away, a green 
smudge of land to port and, a 
little to the north-east of it, a 
scries of thin outlines, tike 
footprints on the black sea. 
fading and reappearing as the 
beam packs them out. 

On the screen, the glow- 
worm lights are all that reveals 
Iran's economic lifeline to the 
outside world, the small ar- 
mada of merchant ships . and 
oil tankers which, unarmed 
and sailing alone through the 
Gulf, ultimately earn the 
money to pay for Iran’s colos- 
sal, war with Iraq. 

In the humidity on deck, 
where the temperature climbs 
to 120 degrees, you can soon 
make out the beaches of Larak 
Island, the black pyramids of 
rock behind them and the 
winding military road which 
the seamen tell you sendees 
the new ground-to-air missiles 
which the Iranians have se- 
creted in the dunes. 

And then you see the ships. 
They' are spread out on the fer 
horizon. riding at anchor un- 
der that canopy of brown 
smoke: shuttle ships, mother 
ships, export ygsrels. among 

of the Iraqi air force. Or so, 
their masters hope. 

For this is Iran's new ofl 
loading station, a seaborne 
terminal for the Iranian oil 
brought down at such human 
cost from Kharg Island and 
trans-shipped here, in the 
heavy swell above the Straight 
of Hormuz, into the tankers 
which will take it to Japan and 

The extraordinary fleet of 
21 ships at Larak yesterday 
bad deliberately been scat- 
tered across 50 square mfles of 
sea in case the Iraqis repeated 
their air raid on the Sim 
Island terminal and flew even 
further down the Gulf to 
Larak; and over the ship-to- 
ship radio you could hear their 
captains, in the restrained 
voices of men going to war. 

“Shush to Sanandaj. come 
in.” an Iranian voice de- 

“I need your location,” 
breaks in a deep Yorkshire 
accent, and a Scotsman replies 
with a bearing east of 56 
degrees 3d the official eastern

As part of the extensive

terday began a two-day meet- 
ing on Afghanistan — one of

delegations would not attempt 
to negotiate an end to the 
seven-year-old conflict be- 
tween Soviet-backed Afghan 
forces and Muslim rebels, bnt 
would exchange views in 
“working level” discussions.

China spy 
chief flees 
to West 

Peking (AFP) — A senior 
Chinese intelligence official 
has defected to the West, 
dealing China's overseas es- 
pionage network a significant 
blow, reliable sources here 
said yesterday. 

They said that the official 
Mr Yu San, had been' pro- 
moted director of foreign af- 
fairs for the State Security 
Ministry shortly before he 
defected in January. . 

The highest ranking intelli- 
gence officer known to have 
gone to the West since the 
Communists came to power 
in China in 1949, he ^is 
believed to know the identities 
of operatives engaged in Chi- 
nese spy operations overseas. 

The highly secretive State 
Security Ministry, which deals 
solely with espionage and 
counter-espionage, was a part 
of the Public Security Min- 
istry until it was made a 
separate government agency 
in June 1983. 

Sources said that Chinese 
officials believe Mr Yu to be 
releasing information slowly 
to ensure that his hosts will 
not return him underpressure 
from Peking. 

His iob would have made 
him privy to details of China's 
co-operation with foreign 
intelligence agencies, as well 
as to the names of many 
overseas contacts co-operating 
with China. 

One source said that Mr Yu, 
who is in his late 30s, had been 
involved with a foreign 
woman believed to have 
helped to engineer his defec- 
tion during a visit to Hong 
Kong. Another account said 
he is believed to be in Taiwan. 

It is not immediately known 
whether there is any connec- 
tion between Mr Y u’s caseand 
that of Larry Wu-Tai Chin, 
aged 63, a Chinese-born US 
citizen arrested in November 
and convicted of having spied 
for China for 30 years. 

Mr Chin, who worked for 
the Central Intelligence Ag- 
ency, said at his trial that a 
Chinese contact had (fefected 
and tipped off Washington. 

He was sentenced to life 
imprisonment and fined 
million (£1.68 million), bu! 
committed suicide m jail by 
suffocating himself. 

Mr Yu's family background 
suggests that he could have 
become disillusioned by me 
twists and turns of Chinese 
communist rule, analysis say,

Back with a jolt after record flight 




The Dutch Viking touching down with a bump in The Netherlands after its record flight across the Atlantic, to the obvious 
delight of Willem Hageman, a crewman, marking the success with raised arms and foe widest of grins. 

Ahnere (Reuter) — Three Dutch 
balloonists yesterday set a record for an 
Atlantic crossing bnt narrowly escaped 
disaster after suddenly losing bright over 
a busy industrial area, flight officials said. 

Speaking from Scfelpsl airport, Amster- 
dam, Mr Leo Tekstra, the operations 
leader, said the crew was forced to ditch 
sacks of lead ballast over Vehen after 
encountering a sadden downdraught while 
crossing foe coastfine at about 5 am. 

Two bags smashed through the roofs of 
a steel plant and a frozen fish factory, one 

landing in a cloakroom around docking- 
on time. No one was hurt 

“They were losing height fast and had 
to drop ballast quickly because the 
burners could not compensate — it was tbe 
only way to save the balloon and 
themselves," Mr Tekstra said. 

The 15-storey-high balloon, called 
Dutch Viking, gained height, skirted 
Schipol and was then brought down with a 
jolt Just after 6 am in a cornfield near 
here, on the sovth Flevoland polder 
reclaimed from the sea in the 1960s. 

The crew, tbe first Europeans to cross 
the Atlantic by balloon and including the 
first woman to make the trip, did so in 50 
hours and 14 minutes, taking nearly two

ublic News Agency (Ima), 
monitored in Nicosia, said 
that foe al-Amiq platform. 25 
miles south of Iraq’s Fao 
peninsula, was seized in a pre- 
dawn assault and its defenders 
killed or captured. 

The agency also said that an 
Iraqi fighter-bomber was shot 
down by anti-aircraft fire dur- 
ing the attack. It said Iranian 
ships and marines later at-

Ima claimed that Iranian

ern sector of the 733-mile 
front pounded foe Iraqi port

The double-pronged Ira- 
nian assault in foe northern 
and southern fronts has 
strengthened indications that 

Tehran's strategy is appar- 
de fences 

entiy to stretch Iraqi 
in preparation for a big push 
in the central sector. 

Baghdad Radio later 
claimed in a statement that al- 
Amiq was deserted, but that 
Iraqi forces were “confronting 
the enemy wiih courage."

nian opposition group, foe

few weeks (Reuter reports).

Rival ministers 
agree accord 
in bid to end 
Beirut civil war 

• Beirut (Reuter) - Leb- 
anon's Christian and Muslim 
ministers meeting for the first 
.time in nine months agreed 
■ yesterday on a truce and a 
[national charter intended to 
i end the 1 1-year civil war. 

The Sunni Muslim Prime 
Minister. Mr Rashid KaramL, 
who called for new peace talks 
on August 19. announced the 
truce after a three-hour meet- 
ing of 10 rival ministers at the 
closed-down race track on 
Beirut's "green line" marking 
the religious divide. 

"It was decided to an- 
nounce a genera! open truce 
and to set up a national 
charter based on safeguarding 
Lebanon's unity, stressing its 
Arab identity, re-forming its 
political system, setting up a 
national army and liberating 
the south," Mr Karami said. 

He said that a second 
meeting would be held on 
Friday to continue discussions 
on implementing yesterday's 

More than 500 troops and 
security men cordoned the 
area and sharpshooters took 
position on roof tops. 

Only a few sniper shots 
marred an unusual tranquility 
al the race-track as the min- 
isters held their peace session. 

Rival Christian and Muslim 
militiamen escorting them 
met face to face. 

"We are one people after all 
— why can’t we meet and 
talk?” said a Christian, smil- 
ing with a rival Shia Muslim 
Amal militiaman. 

The peace talks were the 
first since a Syrian-mediated 
peace plan collapsed in Janu- 
ary. President Assad of Syria 
has voiced his support for the 

But Mr Nabih Bern, the 
Shia Muslim Amal militia 
leader and Justice Minister, 
who arrived at the meeting 
flanked by more than 50 
bodyguards, has said he is 
pessimistic about the out- 

He said that he was ready 
only to discuss the Syrian- 
mediated peace plan, which 
granted Muslims more say in 
the present political system 
which favours Christians. 

The Christian President 
Gemayel, who returned from 
a private visit to France on 
Monday, did not attend the 
meeting. It is not known 
whether he will attend follow- 
up discussions. 

Analysts say that even if the 
talks do achieve a truce, many 
obstacles remain. 





Brussels (Renter) — Presi- 
dent Reagan's special envoy, 
Mr Vernon Walters, warned 
the European allies yesterday 
about relaxing their guard 
against the terrorist threat 
from Libya, but did not urge 
new sanctions against Tripoli. 

Mr Walters, who is on a 
week-tong journey to dram op 
support for US policy on 
Libya, gave his warning at an 
hour-tong meeting with the 
Belgian Foreign Minister, Mr 
Leo Tindemans. 

He also met Nato's deputy 
Secretary-General, Signor ' 
Marcello Gaidi, for dis- 
cussions that covered “the 
struggle against terrorism 
throegboot the world.” 

He later left for Paris and a 
working meeting with Presi- 
dent Mitterrand. 

Mr Walters had been widely 
expected to press for tough 
anti-Libyan sanctions after 
Washington's dismay earlier 
tills year at the limited support 
from Europe for the US 
position on Libya. 

But government sources 
here said that in his talks with 
Mr Tindemans he did not urge 
new sanctions, putting the 
accent instead on vigilance. 

• BONN: West German of- 
ficials said yesterday they had 
no evidence that Libya was 
preparing terrorist actions 
against US installations here 1 
or elsewhere (AP reports).

Murphy leaves Israel to see Husain 

Jerusalem — The US assis- 
tant Secretary of State, Mr 
Richard Murphy, left Israel 
for Jordan yesterday to meet

change of plan (David Bern- 
stein writes). 

The change was designed to 
enable him to meet King

king leaves for medical treat- 
ment in Europe. 

Mr Murphy said that he was 
sounding out the position in 
Jerusalem, Cairo and Amman 
to brief Washington.

Japanese radicals are noth- 
ing if not open and consistent 
about their intentions. 

When members of the left- 
wing Chukaku (Middle Core) 
group burst into Mr Masaaki 
Maeda’s flat and beat him 
with steel pipes, he had known 
for some time that he was a 
probable target. 

Chukaku bad denounced 
his support of plans to break 
up and privatize the Japan 
National Railways (JNR) sys- 
tem, and had said he would 
pay for it 

Mr Maeda. a rail employee, 
died two hours after he and his 
wife, Noriko, were attacked 
early on Monday morning as 
they slept in- special JNR 
employees' housing not far 
from the port city of Kobe. 
Mrs Maeda’s condition is 

In co-ordinated attacks in 
six different places' Chukaku 
members injured eight others 
either associated with or mar- 
ried to members of Shin- 
kokuro, a new breakaway 
railwaymen's union. 

Shinkokuro split in April 
frftn the main rail union. 
Kokuro, over opposition to 
the privatization of JNR 
which will lead to extensive 
job losses. 

Legislation calling for the 
break-up of JNR into regional 
companies and their sub- 
sequent sale to the private 
sector is expected to be passed 
by the Diet (Pariament) early 
next year. JNR’s accumulated 
deficit stands at the equivalent 
of £101 billion. 

Chukaku is the most active 
and well-publicized of some 
25 radical left-wing groups in 
Japan opposed in varying 
degrees to the "fescist state”. 
They champion the causes of 
those they feel are being 
trampled by the imperial and 
imperialist Government 

Monday's attack was the 
second major operation agai- 
nst government plans for 
JNR. Last winter, in an ex- 
tremely efficient and well-co- 
ordinated operation in the 
early hours of the morning, 
they halted virtually the whole 
of JNR's Tokyo commuter 

By David Watts 

lines by severing signalling 
and control systems. 

One railway station was set 
alight and gutted and some 
Chukaku members later ar- 
rested. Millions of commuters 
had to find other ways of 
getting to work. Japanese were 
shocked to find just how. 
vulnerable to attack were the 
capital's superb rail systems. 

The attack showed that 
Chukaku cither had infiltrated 
the rail union extensively or 
had assistance from inside 
JNR. Police believe the for- 
mer. and consider it likely that 
other unions may also have 
been infiltrated at a time when 
the few national unions in 
Japan are on the retreat. 

Chukaku is fundamentally 
Troiskyite. Police believe that 
it has about 5,000 members, 
with an inner "revolutionary 
army” of 100-200 guerrilla 
fighters. U was probably mem- 
bers of this unit who carried* 
out Monday's attacks. 

When The Times inter- 
viewed Chukaku members in 
their fortress-like, banner-stre- 
wn headquarters in the sub- 
urbs ofTokyo earlier this year, 
their spokesman refused to 
discuss the movement's stren- 
gth but said that springtime 
rallies of 15,000 protesters at 
the new Narita international 
airport gave an indication of 
the size of its mass support. 

Their language is laced with 
the terminology of revolution 
and there is no doubt they are 
every bit as disciplined and 
determined as the special riot 
police dispatched to contain 
the protests. The massive 
material success of Japan 
seems only to confirm them in 
the rightness of their cause. 

Over the years the group has 
been responsible for 47 
deaths, including that of Mr 
Maeda. some of them police- 
men assigned to quell the 
massive and violent protests 
against the construction at 
Narita. two hours from 

But most of their victims 
have been members of their 
own and other radical groups 
who fell out in the early 1970s 
and set about each other with 
steel pipes. 

Human rights workers 
terrorized by torture 

By Caroline Moorebead 

Marcela Pradems Toro and 
Alejandro Herrera are two 
young people active in the 
community work of the Catho- 
lic Church in the pobla c iones, 
the poor suburbs. of Santiago. 

Both were kidnapped by 
clandestine forces, popularly 
called “unknowns”, between 
June and October 1985 — just 
two of the 64 cases of abduc- 
tion reported during the year. 

Marcela Pradenas has been 
attacked three times by the 
“unknowns”. At the time of 
the third attack she was under 
police protection. Three hood- 
ed men broke into her house 
and burned crosses on to her 
face and chest with an or- 
dinary domestic iron. 

Alejandro Herrera, kid- 
napped in July 1985, was cut 
across the throat with a pen- 
knife. He was asked to become 
an informer, and told to stay 
away from the local priest A 
month later his bouse was 
ransacked and the words 
“Death to Marxists” were 
painted on his sheets. 

Both, however, are still 
alive. Of the hundreds of 
political, human rights and 
community activists, as well as 
their friends and relations, 
who have been victims of the 
“unknowns” since 1983, many 
are dead - or badly injured, 
killed by gunshots from pass- 
ing cars or held and tortured. 

In a new Amnesty Inter- 
national briefing The Clandes- 
tine and Illegal Practices of the 
Security Forces in C Site, pub- 
lished today, there is a 
disturbing echo of the period 
after the coup of 1973, when 
prisoners were held in secret 
torture centres and hundreds 

These abductions, by groups 
known to^ include members of 
the security forces acting un- 
der cover, are just one part of a 
new strategy of terror, which 
has beets intensi^i™ since 
1983 in the free of toSeastog 




public protest against govern- 
ment policies. 

The scale of the abuses 
practised by the official se- 
curity forces, whose powers 
have been extended, has risen 
equally sharply. 

In May 15,000 people in 30 
poblaciones were rounded up, 
their homes ransacked and 
belongings smashed. 

During last year alone, 784 
people were arrested on politi- 
cal grounds. And there ap- 
pears to be marked unwil- 
lingness on the part of the 
court to prosecute. 

Though Chilean law prohib- 
its the use of torture, the report 
shows that it is being used by 
the security forces, not in 
isolated cases but as a delib- 
erate _ and ' carefully devised 
practice, with doctors present 
and using specially designed 
torture equipment. 

Since 1981. 10 people are 
known to have died as a result 
of torture. One of these was 
JHan Aguirre Ballesteros, who 
went missing after being de- 
tained by uniformed police in 
September 1984. Despite a 
public outcry, the police de- 
nied he was being held. After 
55 days, his headless and 
mutilated body was found in a 
river near by. A young «nm 
detained with him has testified 
to his torture and death. 

Until now, not a single 
member of the security forces 
has been convicted of torture 
or the killing of a political

Four million: the truant constituents 

• Young people can be stimulating 
and full of surprises. Certainly the 
77#ncy/MORI survey of attitudes 
and opinions among 18 to 25-year- 
olds, which we conclude today, sup- 
ports that conclusion. The 63 million 
people who have reached voting age 
since Mrs Thatcher came to power in 
1979 constitute a fascinating genera- 
tion. not least because it was largely 
spawned by products of the Sixties, 
that generation socially transformed by 
everything from the birth pill to In- 
dian mystics via mini-cars, mini-skirts 
and mega-amplification. 

• Whether the times have changed 
the people or the people have changed 
the times, something has certainly 
changed. In parallel with the poll, dis- 
cussion groups met in three Tory 
marginals — Bath, Nottingham North 
and the Leeds suburb of Elmet. All 

A llhough political 
apathv is wide- 
spread among the 
new generation of 
voters, with only 34 
per cent saying they are cer- 
tain to vote at the next 
election, there are plenty of 
issues they do care about. But 
the MORI poll docs contain 
still more c\ idenee about the 
apathy which is their most 
characteristic political atti- 
tude. That 34 per cent should 
be set against the levels of 
more than SO per cent of the 
over 55s. for example, who 
have expressed definite voting 
intention in other polls. It 
would be likely to rise were an 
election imminent but there 
is an immediate qualification 
to be made on how far. 

More than a quarter of 
those polled insist that they 
will not be voting at all. This 
political apathy is surety 
something more than a listless 
unconcern for the issues of the 
day: rather a positive opting- 
oui of the whole political 

“Thatchers children", just 
like the rest of the electorate, 
cure about a lot of issues, often 
\cn deeply. In the table 
published on Monday they 
listed unemployment as their 
central concern (54 per cent), 
but education (26). health care 
(20). the twin issues of nuclear 
disarmament and defence (15 
and 14 respectively) and law 
and order ( 1 3t also figure 
strongly. The discussion 
groups provided illuminating 
glimpses into the thinking 
behind each concent. 

On education: Thatcher's 
children want more discipline 
in schools, not less. This may 
conic as a surprise to educa- 
tionalists: it certainly will to 
those who grew up in the 
|4nQs. when the tide of school 
liberalization was in full flood. 
Over and oxer again, these 
young people spoke with con- 
tempt of the slack school 
regimes of which, they readily 
admiued. they had taken

teachers) don't bother." 

This feeling was often min- 
gled with regret at not having 
worked harder. In the poll, the 
percentage rating the educa- 
tion they had received as 
“very good" was 14: ihis had 
dropped from a figure of 22 
which MORI recorded in a 
similar poll in 1979.

On law and order many 
young women fell less safe, 
and numerous young people 
of both sexes wanted to bring 
hack hanging. 

Other issues excited less 
concent. Drugs (nine per cent 
thought it most important) 
were mentioned seldom. 
Some issues were complete 
non-staners. The Labour 
Party with its new programme 
to capture the “green vote" 
will be disappointed to learn 
that only three per cent 
thought conservation of the 
countryside one of the most 
important, and in the dis- 
cussion groups it was never 
mentioned. And the Tories 
might note that with these 
young people union-bashing is 

would be lost if the electoral tide, of 
which the 18-to-25$ represent a 
potentially significant 15 per cent, was 
to turn against Mrs Thatcher. The 
words and the figures combine to dem- 
onstrate a deep-rooted cynicism 
amounting to political apathy. 

• Young people care about many is- 
sues, but they neither blame the poli- 
ticians nor think them very likely to 
find solutions. They are not rebels in 
the conventional mode. Their words 
suggest that they care a lot aboht law 
and order, bnt very little about the 
environment Asked about the pro- 
fessions they respect, they give 
policemen a score more than twice as 
high as the totals for social workers,

gether. What then, has produced 
this apolitical, seemingly conservative 

a waste of lime. They do noi 
remember ihc Winter of Dis- 
content and the issue of union 
power was never raised. 

But any politician scanning 
this list and wondering which 
arc the great vole-winners 
with “Thatcher's children" 
ought to take pause for 
thought: it would seem that 
none of them is. What was 
missing in the discussion 
groups was the automatic 
mental connection between 
these concerns and the 
possibility of doing something 
about them politically. 

The most startling example 
concerns unemployment, the 
issue we revealed on Monday 
as being .young voters’ over- 
riding worry. Over a five-year 
period in which it has risen by 
40 per cent, the degree of 
blame placed on the govern- 
ment has halved among the 
young unemployed 


■ str 

O nly 21 per cent of 
the young un- 
employed in the 
poll blame the gov- 
ernment for their 
situation, the same figure as 
for all respondents. Yet in 
August 1981. when unemploy- 
ment stood at 2.322.000. 
MORI found in a survey for 
Granada Television that the 
figure was 40 per cent 
What accounts for political 
apathy of this order among a 
whole’ generation? MORI 
asked those who said they 
would not be voting to list 
their reasons. “Don't under- 
stand politics” rated 25 per 
cent: “not interested in 
politics” rated 26: but top of 
the list was the category 
combining "No faith in any 
pany/Thcy're as bad as each 
olher/They don't keep 
promises", which were cited 
by 34 per cent Cynicism, 
then, rather than ignorance or 
lack of interest, was the domi- 
nant reason. 

Answers to other poll ques- 
tions reflected this. Forty-four 
per cent thought that poli- 
ticians were not sincere, 
against 34 per cent who 
thought they were: more than . 
half agreed that “most poli- 
ticians don't really care what 
people like me really think” as 
against less than a third who 
disagreed: and nearly two- 
thirds agreed that “people like

me are powerless to change 
things in this country”. 

Asked which two or three of 
a dozen groups of people they 
had most respect for. only 
three per cent cited MPs. a 
contempt rating exceeded 
only by that awarded to 
journalists (2 per cent). 
MORl’s field workers re- 
corded verbatim comments 
from those who said they 
would not vote, and these are 
typical: “I don't see the point 

of iL They all say things they 
don't mean"; “They're all 
mouth and trousers. Basically 
all of them keep saying they 
will do things and none of 
them ever do." 

In a discussion group, un- 
employed Mark Smith, aged 
19. from Kippax near Leeds, 
said: “I don't watch Question 
Time with Robin Day or 
anything, but the odd times I 
have turned the TV on lo 
watch a film. I've caught the 

last bit of iL and there's 
always . . . they're always 
seeming to try to get round the 
people in the audience, to win 
them over, but they always 
seem to sound as though they 
don't mean it.”

ing all parties? “I should think 
so. yeah. 1 mean, they all want

in Leeds city centre or any- 
thing doing a talk, they just 
seem to be winning over the 
voters rather than trying to tell 
you ‘We want to change 
unemployment, we want to 
get better jobs, we want to get 
belter education’." 

At least Mark is going to 
vote (although he is undecided 
as to which way). A real, 
definite non-voter is 21-year- 
old hairdresser Tracy Lee Dye. 
from Bulweli. Nottingham. 
She said: ~I don't think there 
is anything that can be done 
that could make Britain bet- 
ter. I'm not voting. Let them 
get on with iL” 

The political leader who can 
find the key to banishing this 
cynicism has a rich prize 
awaiting. The MORI poll 
indicates that of the 6.2 mil- 
lion young voters, about 1.1 
million arc committed to La- 
bour. half a million to the 
Tories and about 400.000 to 
the Alliance. The cynical and 
sceptical remainder thus num- 
ber more than four million: 1 0 
per cent of the electorate up 
for grabs. 

A dozen years ago on the 
London stage, a short play by 
an American playwright. Rob- 
ert Patrick, had a profound 
cflcct on anyone who saw it; 
its title was Kennedy's Chil- 
dren. It portrayed five charac- 
ters looking back on the 
Sixties and the sentiment lhaL 
at firsL animated them all: 
idealism. It was a poignant 
testament to the New Frontier 
generation inspired by Ken- 
nedy in the United Slates. 

They were not enervated by 
mass unemployment: they 
were not politically apathetic. 
There was no cynicism in that 
generation because Kennedy's 
children had found 'something 
and somebody they could 
believe in.

The legendary Man 
of Steel now works 
out in a gym and 
meditates in Tibet as 
the comic-strip hero 
flies into the 1980s 

A LEGEND is being reborn 
deep in suburban Connecticut, 
an boor’s train ride from New 
York. Superman, the Man of 
Steel, is undergoing a trans- 
formation. known in the 
comic-book trade as a “fix", to 
bring the first of the super- 
heroes into tile 1980s. 

Superman will still be faster 
than a speeding bullet and 
more powerful than a train, 
bnt in his new earthly incarna- 

i lion be will be a self-confident, 

! body-consrions. feature writer, 

' who works out in a gym and 
writes sociological science fic- 
tion in his spare time. He will 
still be called Clark Kent, stiU 
work for the Daily Planet, but 
he will be worlds away from 
the humble, bespectacled re- 
porter created by Jerry Siegel 
and Joe Shuster in 1938. 

Chief perpetrator of this 
assault on the character who 
gave birth to the comic-book 
industry is John Byrne, a 
bulky, bristle- haired cartoon- 
ist whose previous charges 
have included X-Men and The 
Fantastic Four. Putting in a 
Strict eight-hour day at his 17- 
room Victorian mansion, be 
has produced the first of the 
new adventures, to be 
launched in the autumn.

Steel men: John Byrne with Superman old and new 

man as an eight-year-old 
comic Ian, is conscious of 
treading an hallowed ground, 
hut be agreed with DC Com- 
ics, who felt the time was right 
for change. “The Superman 
movies were like a multi- 
million dollar advert, but peo- 
ple weren't finding what they 
wanted in the comics”, says 
Byrne, aged 35. “We needed to 
get back to tbe basic elements 
of the legend.” 

That meant the end for 
Supergiri, Superboy, 
Superdog and all the other 
Krypton tan hangers-on, plus 

the version of Superman who 
had married fellow reporter 
Lois Lane. In a major “house- 
cleaning” of DC Comics titles, 
published as the 12-part Crisis 
On Infinite Earths, tire couple 
were sent to another dimen- 
sion to live happily ever alter. 

THE FEARLESS defender of 
liberty. Superman is the ul- 
timate all-American hero. 
When rumours of change be- 
came public, tbe outrage was 
predictable, with Byrne ac- 
cused variously of plotting to 
turn him into a Republican, a 
Ram bo figure and a Brie- 
eating Yuppie, all of which he 
denies. “Out there I have this 
image as a mad-eyed butcher, 
but 1 can't even breathe with- 

out being watched over by 16 

Byrne, who trained at Al- 
berta College of Art in Canada 
and graduated to comic strips 
from commercial signwriting, 
has spent most of his career 
with the rival Marvel Comics, 
where be was made well aware 
of audience’s expectations. 

“Hard-core comic readers 
approach the circumstances as 
if they were real, but if 
something happens that they 
don't like, they know whom to 
blame. When we killed off 
characters, we received lots of 
sympathy poems. A friend of 
mine even received death 
threats, but a character like 
Superman doesn't generate 
that kind of psychosis." 

The basic elements of the 
Superman legend, Byrne- 
style, remain tbe same. Clark 
Kent is reared in Smalirille by- 
Jonathan and Martha Kent 
baring been shipped off from 
the exploding Krypton by his 
real parents. Krypton is 
vintage comic book fantasy, 
but Metropolis, the world of 
the adult Clark Emit, 1ms 
identifiable verskms of the 
World Trade Centre and (be 
Empire State Budding in its 

“Superman is super only if 
he operates in a world we can 

recognize", says Byrne. His 
Lois Lane, with big eyes and 
square jaws, is based partly on 
movie star Rosalind Russell, 
partly on his actress wife 
Andrea: “All my women 
characters look like my wife. I 
was drawing that face, then I 
met that face, so I married iL" 

Superman with a Nautilus 
machine, as a convenient cover 
for his other-worldly phy- 
sique, and a mountain top in 
Tibet for meditation. He also 
gives him a strong streak of 
anti-commercialism, perhaps 
an envious swipe at the success 
of the Superman movies, 
which have done much more 
tor box-office figures than for 
the comic strip. 

Byrne is confident, however, 
that be has the magic elixir for 
his hero, who remains forever 
on the right side of 30. Mean- 

while, Action Comics n amber 
583, which banished the old- 
- style Superman to the frozen 
wastes beyond the Fortress of 
Solitude, also recalls one of 
tbe most embarrassing mo- 
ments in his 48-year career. 

On the eve of President 
Kennedy's assassination, an 
issue was published in which 
Superman's life was cele- 
brated on the TV show Oar 
American Heroes. Clark Kent 
had to appear, as one of 
Superman's friends, and to 
protect his true identity he 
persuaded the President to 
impersonate him. 

Tbe story was already on 
the stands as news of the 
President’s death broke, and it 
appeared in terrible taste. 
However, as John Byrne is 
fond of saying: “It’s only lines 
on paper, remember thaL”

Council for 
the defence? 

The 47 Liverpool councillors still 
determined to take their case 
against disqualification to the 
highest court in the land have a 
new solicitor. He is Keva 
Coombes, former leader of 
Merseyside County Council, abol- 
ished last ApriL Having thus been 
left in political limbo, he last 
month won a seat on Liverpool 
Council. As an opponent of Mili- 
tant. Coombes is put in a piquant 
position by his new brief. Further- 
more. one of ihe threatened 
councillors he will be representing. 
John Linden, was formerly his 
partner in a Liverpool law firm. 
Linden. Coombes & Co. Last 
month Coombes left it to work as 
consultant at another firm. If his 
(and barrister Louis Blom- 
Cooper's) case fails and the 47 lose 
their Liverpool Council seats. 
Coombes would appear to be a 
natural choice to lead the deci- 
mated council. Coombes says he 
would not dream of seeking 
preferment in the Labour group at 
a time he is vying to sunned 
Robert KJIroy-Silk as MP for 
Knowsley North.

Peacock thrown 

Who says the SDP is a one-man 
party? Browsing through the 
agenda for the SDP assembly. ! 
happen upon the conclusions 
reached by its parliamentary 
committee on the Peacock report. 

It rejects Peacock's notion of 
competitive tendering for ITV 
franchises “on the grounds that 
this would handicap the IBA in 
evaluating competing packages 
and blunt the readiness of the 
companies to undertake risky, 
prestige projects". Funny. 
Conceding that the IBA should 
check the fitness of ITV franchise 
bidders, David Owen told the 
audience of the W ’hat (he Papers 
Say awards in February: “Once 
that has been done the - actual 
franchises surely should be 
awarded to the highest bidder.'

ordered his radio operator “Tell

phrased message met the same

Higher calling 

The Queen, who climbed the 152 
steps of a Scottish lighthouse last 
month, has now been asked to 
climb Britain's most easterly light- 
house, at Lowestoft. A local 
woman who sent her a postcard of 
the 1 23ft lower has received a 
reply from Balmoral: "Her Maj- 
esty has added Lowestoft to her 
list oflighthouscs to climb.*' 


America is determined to regain the 
Libyan coast Then it will try to defeat 
Syria, so that its military control will be 
from Turkey to the Strait of Gibraltar. 
Why? Because of Libya? No, because of 
the Soviet Union, indeed, if America 
triumphed over Libya and triumphed 
over Syria and Algeria, the Soviet 
Union's position would be in danger — 
the Warsaw Treaty would be in danger. 
The Mediterranean would become an 
American lake. 

This is one of the reasons for our 
joint struggle with the Soviet Union, 
because the fail of Libya would lead to 
the siege of the Soviet Union, and 
defending Libya would lead to the 
defeat of the Soviet Union's enemy, 
which is America. 

The Soviet Union has a gigantic force 
equal to the force of America. 
Gorbachov has intercontinental mis- 
siles: he has atomic submarines. He has 
hundreds of warships. He has half the 
globe. He can use the stars. But look at 
him — Gorbachov on every occasion 
presents a proposal for safeguarding 
world peace. Gorbachov has mighty 
weapons similar to those of America. 
Therefore the difference lies in the two 
minds — between the two men. One of 
them is mad and the other has a sound 
mind. One of them is worthy of his post 
as president of a superpower while the 

by Colonel Gadaffi 

other is not and should remain a 
second-class actor in Hollywood. 

The Americans claim they have 
discovered that Libya is planning 
terrorist operations. We challenge him 
to show the evidence proving that a 
terrorist operation is planned by Libya. 
Is there a hostile party which tells 
Reagan that this is a Libyan plan and he 
believes it? The fact is, we see that the 
Americans are naive and believe false 
reports, because the information they 
had following the air raid said that 
Gadaffi had lost his authority. They 
said that a military collective leader- 
ship has been set up in Libya. What 
military leadership? We had a military 
leadership after the revolution. We 
dissolved ourselves and the 
Jamahiriyah was established. 

No people can live constantly under 
the threat of aircraft carriers and the 
threat of another state every morning 
and every evening. This is a state of fear 
which Reagan is imposing on a small 
nation. I want to say to him, “If you 
continue your tyranny, insolence, mad- 
ness and foolishness, against the inter- 
national community and world peace, 
then I, Muammar al-Gadaffi, want to 
state that I can form an international 

army consisting of fighters against 
imperialism and against the USA 
personally. I can form an army outside 
Libya, and this army will spread to all 
comers of the globe to destroy the 
American presence everywhere. 

1 am still at the stage of leading the 
revolution oh Libyan and Arab terri- 
toiy. 1 check America's military cam- 
paigns over our territory and will resist 
bravely and we will stand our ground. 
Wc will make the Americans suffer 
affliction. We will feed them to the fish 
in the Mediterranean if they reach our 
territory. I would like to say that Libya 
has the military capability and the 
human capability. As from next month 
we will.begpn collecting the cost of one 
million rifles in order to arm one 
million people and deploy them along 
the Mediterranean coast 

If America is a superpower, we have 
friends who are also a superpower. The 
Soviet Union with all its capabilities 
has stood by the Libyan people. The 
Soviet Union has realized now that its 
peace initiatives are being disregarded 
by imperialism, and has realized that 
the -imperialists should be confronted 
with force.

Tripoli this week and broadcast by 
Tripoli radio. Translation from Ardbic

Steven Greer and Antony White challenge the Diplock court rationale 

Article 8 or the agreement signed 
by the British and Irish prime 
ministers last November slates 
that both governments recognize 
“the importance of public con- 
fidence in the administration of 
justice" in Northern Ireland, and 
that the Intergovernmental Con- 
ference then established will con- 
sider “with the help ofadvice from 
experts . . . measures which 
would give substantial expression 
to this aim". 

In January, in one of the twice- 
ycarly debates on Northern 
Ireland's emergency laws, the 
Commons accepted a government 
proposal that jury trial be restored 
for a number of offences hitherto 
tried by the juryless Diplock 
courts. The Irish government was 
quick to express dissatisfaction 
when news of this reform was 
leaked to the press a week earlier, 
h is not difficult to see why. 

"hie Northern Ireland (Emer- 
gency Provisions) Act 1978 pro- 
scribes trial by a court without a 
jury for a list of offences contained 
in a “schedule" (appendix), 
whether or not they were commit- 
ted for political motives. The 
Attorney-General is empowered 
to remove from the Diplock 
system specific cases involving 
some of the scheduled offences, 
but this power is invariably ex- 
ercised only where there is clearly 
no political dimension: for exam- 
ple. in domestic murdere. 

The January amendment mere- 
ly extends this discretion to in- 
clude kidnapping. false 
imprisonment, certain firearms 
otfenccs and all scheduled of- 
fences that arc triable summarily 
or carry a maximum sentence of 
less than five years. Therefore all 
scheduled offences committed for 
political reasons will still be tried 
by judge alone. 

Tinkering with the emergency 
laws in this way. as the Dublin 
government recognizes, is unlikely 
to do much vo enhance public 
confidence in Northern Ireland's 
tarnished criminal justice system. 
It is difficult to maintain that 
those for whom the Diplock courts 
were designed get a fair trial, yet 
ordinary criminals who end up 
there owing to the quirks of the 
scheduling sy stem do noL 
What is required is a full 
restoration of jury trial to all 
indictable offences, whether car- 
ried out by paramilitary organ- 
izations or noL Our study on the 
question demonstrates that this is 
entirely practicable — and that the 
justifications for suspending jury’ 
trial in ihe first place in 1973 were 
never satisfactorily established. 

In 1972 the Diplock Commis- 
sjon considered “whether changes 
should be made in the administra- 
tion of justice in order to deal 
more effectively with terrorists 
without using internment". It 
concluded that jury trial was “not 
practicable in the case of terrorist 
crimes in Northern Ireland" be- 
cause of the risk that jurors would 
be intimidated and that Loyalist 
defendants would be perversely 
acqiticd by what were then domi- 
nantly Protestant juries. 

Although neither the Diplock 

Time to revive 
trial by 
jury in Ulster 

Report nor the subsequent par- 
liamentary debates offered any 
concrete evidence that these were 
in fact serious problems, this twin 
justification for the non-jury 
courts has been elevated to the 
status of self-evident truth. 

Independent analyses have 
tended to confirm that some 
Loyalist defendants were per- 
versely acquitted by juries in the 
1969-73 period but the evidence 
for juror intimidation has never 
amounted to anything more than 
sketchy anecdotes. 

In 1974 Parliament passed the 
Juries (Northern Ireland) Order 
abolishing the property qualifica- 
tion for jury service, the main 
cause of Protestant bias in cases 
arising from civil disturbances. 
Since then the lists of jurors for 
civil cases, coroners’ inquests and 
trials of non-scheduled indictable 
offences have been randomly 
selected from the electoral register. 
Despite the fact that for over 10 
years this has undermined one of 
the two pillars supporting the 
legitimacy of (he Diplock courts. 
Parliament has never seriously 
considered the implications. 

It would be foolish to assert that 
there was no intimidation of 
jurors by paramilitary organ- 
izations in the early 1970s but our 
research clearly shows that it has 
never been proved that this was 

and is likely to remain such a 
serious problem that the suspen- 
sion of jury trial, rather than some 
other less radical alternative, was 
and is required. 

At least one witness in a 
terrorist trial was murdered in 
Northern Ireland in the 1970s to 
prevent him from testifying, and 
between January I. 1972, and 
August 31, 1974. there were 482 
recorded instances of witnesses 
refusing to give evidence in such 
cases out of fear. Prohibiting the 
participation of civilian witnesses 
in Diplock trials has. however, 
never been entertained by. the 

In stark contrast, jury trial was 
suspended for scheduled offences 
whh no comparable evidence of 
juror intimidation whatsoever. 
This tends to suggest that the 
authorities are prepared to tolerate 
the exposure of witnesses to risk 
because they help in securing 
convictions, while juries are 
considered dispensable because 
they make no contribution to this 
end but on the contrary are more 
prepared to acquit than judges. 

The allegation concerning the 
intimidation of jurors appears 
then to be a convenient ration- 
alization of the real point of the 
non-jury Diplock courts: increas- 
ing convictions by .reducing tra- 
ditional safeguards. 

The jury system ought instead 
to have been reformed in 1973 in 
accordance with three' fun- 
damental principles: eligibility for 
jury service should have beat 
democratized (as was achieved for 
those parts of the jury system left 
intact); the random - dement in the 
selection of jurors should have 
been increased; and the identity of 
jurors should, as far as possible, 
have been concealed. 

Our study makes a number of 
recommendations to facilitate the 
realization of the last two of these 
principles. We can see no reason 
why these modifications should 
not have been introduced in 1973 
or why they cannot be im- 
plemented now. We propose that: 

• Scheduled offences should con- 
tinue to be tried in Belfast but 
separate jury panels should be 
compiled at random for these 
cases from the electoral register. 

• Only a very few court officiate 
should be granted access to these 
names and addresses. 

• Neither defence nor prosecu- 
tion lawyers should be allowed to 
inspect these lists. 

• A jury panel room shook! be 
provided, from which members of 
the public would be excluded; the 
summoning of these jurors to 
particular courts should be by 
number only and the jury box and 
all other parts of the courthouse 
between it and the panel room 
should be hidden from view. 

• A minibus should be provided 
to take those jurors who wish it 
into the centre of Belfast and 
deposit them within the security 
perimeter at a spot randomly 
selected for each trip by a court 
official other than the driver. 

We would also recommend that 
a "contingent juiy trial system" be 
introduced. All scheduled offence 
trials should begin before a judge 
and jury; but if either the prosecu- 
tion or the defence can prove that 
a juror or potential juror has been 
intimidated, the trial should begin 
again before a different judge and 
jury. If intimidation recurs, the 
trial should then automatically be 
conducted by a judge alone. ~ 

It is also necessary, we believe, 
to give defence and prosecution 
the same opportunities to in- 
fluence the composition of the 
-jury. The prosecution's present 
unlimited right to "stand by” 
jurors (have them go to the end of 
the queue) should be replaced by 
three "peremptory challenges" per 
defendant (those for which cause 
does not have to be shown). The 
defence should have its current 
allocation of 12 peremptory chal- 
lenges reduced to three. 

These, or something very like 
them, are the necessary first steps 
on the long journey towards 
establishing - a democratic and 
widely respected criminal justice 
system in Northern Ireland.

Kola: the reason Nato looks north 

D.~.. I-- 

». .i. j... . „ 


The present Nato exercise in 
Norway, code named Northern 
Wedding, is only the latest in a 
series of 10 in Nato's northern 
region, involving 35.000 service- 
men from 10 countries. What is it 
that preoccupies Nato generals 
with ihe so-called Northern Flank, 
this remote, difficult and dan- 
gerous part of the world? What 
leads Allied Northern Command 
to declare that the northern region 
will be "the most active area 
within the alliance this year**? 

The Norwegian Foreign Policy 
Institute, an obscure Oslo think- 
tank. may have a large part of the 
answer. Last month it published a 
startling analysis of the Russian 
military build-up in the Kola 
peninsula on the edge of the Arctic 
Ocean. Satellite photographs 
showed, among other things, a 
nearly completed, previously un- 
reponed. airfield by the Bay of 
Kandalaksha, capable of accom- 
modating long-range bombers; 
and details of a naval base at 
Gremikha. east of Murmansk, 
apparently designed for the new 
Typhoon-class submarine, the 
world's lareesL thought to be 
capable of firing nudear missiles 

r_._ t. .u - -_i — 

Finely detailed Landsat pictures 
indicated that part of the base was 
dug into solid rock and protected 
by missiles, a significant develop- 
ment in a region that is already 
home port to the Soviet northern 
fleet of almost 300 warships and 
submarines. The installations on 
Kola, mostly in and around the 
Murmansk fjord, account for 
about 50 per cent of the Soviet 
submarine force, including those 
carrying ballistic missiles. Two 
motorized infantry divisions are 
based on the peninsula, where the 
number of large airfields has been 
estimated at about 20. 

.As the authors note, much of 
this information — although not 
the “remarkable detail" provided 
by many of the photographs - is 
more or less freely available; but 
the very remoteness of Kola “has 
tended to shield it from daily news 
coverage. None the less it is of 
vital military strategic importance 
for the Soviet Union and has led 
to the establishment on the penin- ‘ 
sula of the largest military basing 
complex in the world. 

“This includes two main strate- 
gic nuclear submarine bases, two 
strategic nuclear bomber bases, 
two strategic early-warning and 

plexes. about 70 strategic air 
defence SAM complexes, one 
theatre-nuclear missile launch 
complex, seven main submarine 
bases, nine major bases for surface 
forces. 22 main airbases with 
hardened aircraft shelters and 
runways exceeding 1.600 metres. 
18 secondary airfields, the pre- 
positioning and deployment infra- 
structure for one front-level army 
and very many further instal- 
lations.” In other words, if World 
War 111 broke out it is quite 
possible the Soviet Union would 
largely fight it from Kola. 

Johan J risen Holst, the Norwe- 
gian defence minister, called this 
week for a measured response to 
the Kola report, which has caused 

.... «u« .Mm 

gian press: He said the contents of 
the document were already well 
known to the Norwegian govern- 
ment. and accused those who had 
drawn the most “extreme and 
alarming conclusions" of lacking 
“sobriety and responsibility". 

Some British analysts have 
assessed the developments on 
Kola as evidence of a Russian 
attempt to strengthen its long- 
range bombers in compensation 
for America's proposed Star Wars 
missile defences. The authors of 
the report however, note that 
construction of the air base began 
long before President Reagan's 
Strategic Defence Initiative was 
announced in 1982. 

They sec "a rough military 
equilibrium in the Nordic area on 
the tactical level" at the moment, 
but fear that continuing military 
development on Kola and the 
American response to it will 
increase local tension. "With an 
increasing superpower focus upon 
this area the Nordic states and 
their populations will have to 
learn to live with and manage a 
peacetime situation which is far 
more unstable and tense than 
what they have become accus- 
tomed to."

A ‘spy’ made 
to measure 

Nicholas Daniloff. the American 
journalist detained in Moscow 
since last Saturday, is not a spy - 
and 1 believe that the Soviet 
security services know it. His 
arrest, within minutes of receiving 
an envelope containing incrimi- 
nating mililajy documents, was a 
put-up job of almost outrageous 

I must begin by declaring an 
interest Daniloffs English wife, 
Ruth, is my wife's sister. I have 
known Nick and Ruth for over'20 
years, and have seen them and 
their two children several times 
this year. Nick and I share many 
interests, from international rela- 
tions to marathon running. 

Last ApriL after attending an 
Anglo-Soviet conference in Lenin- 
grad on arms control. I visited the 
Daniloffs in Moscow. I was greatly 
impressed, as others have been, by 
Nick's fluent Russian, his knowl- 
edge of the country, and his ability 
to get on with a wide range of 
Soviet citizens, including officials. 

It so happens that I asked him 
one day whether he was afraid of 
being set up in the way that has 
now happened. He said indeed he 
was. Documents had once been 
planted on him: he got rid of them 
immediately. There had been one 
or two other episodes that had 
made him nervous. 

Since his arrest, there have been 
reports of another and apparently 
quite separate attempt to frame 
him. In April 1 984, a friend of his, 
a geneticist called David 
Goldfarb. was reportedly asked by 
the KGB to pass incriminating 
documents to Daniloff with the 
suggestion that he smuggle them 
out. Goldfarb was offered per- 
mission to emigrate if he carried 
out this task. He refused. 

Is there any sign in all this that 
the Soviet authorities harboured 
serious suspicions that Daniloff 
was a spy? I cannot see any. They 
do not appear to have made any 
attempt to check if he was sending 
out incriminating materiaL When 
I left Moscow last April I drove to 
the airport in his car. He saw me 
off in a practically empty depar- 
ture hall in the presence of some 
Soviet officials, to whom 1 in- 
troduced him. None of my bag- 
gage was so much as looked at 

More recently the same story 
has been repeated. Last Wednes- 
day evening my 16-year-old 
daughter Hannah, after staying 
with the Daniloffs for a week in 
Moscow, was put on a train for 
Warsaw by Nick. When the train 
reached the Polish border at Brest 
the following morning, the Soviet 
customs gave her luggage only the 
most perfunctory examination. 
She joined me in Warsaw, where I 
had been lecturing. On Sunday, in 
blissful ignorance of Nick's arrest 
the previous day, we travelled 
through East Germany with only 
the minimum passport check. 

Last Friday, one day before 
Nick's arrest, his 23-year-old 

daughter Miranda flew out of 
Moscow to Paris. .Again, no 
search, lip to yesterday afternoon 
there had been no search of Nick's 
Moscow flat and office. 

In public life, mud that is flung 
often sticks: accusations of es- 
pionage, however baseless, leave a 
n agg ing doubt in people's minds. 
But in this case the accusation is so 
bizarre that it cannot carry any 
credibility. It dearly cuts no ice 
with the Moscow press corps, 
which is making a protest One 
wonders if it cuts much ice with 
the Soviet authorities themselves. 

It is interesting, though not 
necessarily productive, to specu- 
late about their motives. There 
seem jo be four main theories: 

- That his arrest is in retaliation 
for the arrest in New York a few 
day’s earlier of Gennadi Zakharov, 
a scientific affairs officer attached 
to the United Nations. Nick 
himself inclines to this view. 

- That the affair is in some way 
connected with the proposed 

Reagan-Gorbachov summit, and 

possibly indicates a Soviet desire 
to scupper a meeting which they 
sec as unlikely to be productive. 

- That the Soviet authorities wish 
to interrogate him about all his 
contacts before he finally leaves 
the Soviet Union this month. 

- That the whole business is 
intended as a warning to other 
journalists in Moscow that they 
should avoid unofficial contacts — 
and to Soviet citizens that they 
should avoid Western journalists. 

There may be something to this 
last theory. Nick, who has partly 
Russian ancestry, worked in Mos- 
cow for United Press Inter- 
national from 1961 to 1966. and 
has been working there for VS 
News and World Report since 
1980. He wrote an impressive 
history of the Soviet space pro- 
gramme. The Kremlin and the 

He has been planning to spend a 
year in the US writing a book 
about his ancestor. Alexander 
Frolov, who spent 30 years in 
Siberia for his part in the 1825 
Decembrist plot to overthrow the 
Tsar. In short, he knows the Soviet 
Union and its history better than 

One of the many ironies of this 
case is that he is an extremely 
careful and objective reporter. He 
does not have a record of chasing 
after every anti-Soviet story. Five 
or six years ago. when there was 
endless Western press speculation 
about a possible Soviet invasion 
of Poland, he refused to join in 
this chorus. He has consistently 
recognized (hat the Soviet Union, 
a great power with a tragic history, 
has legitimate security concents. A 
patently trumped-up arrest will 
hardly help the world understand 
the legitimacy of those concerns.

Commentator in Stuttgart: 
Britain's hero today was an ami- 
able 34-vear-old traffic warden 
from Chatham called Jack Morris, 
who proved all his critics wrong by 
taking the toughest event in the 
calendar by the scruff of its neck 
and never letting go. They said 
Jack was finished, they said he was 
over the bill. How wrong could 
they be! But to see just how he did

Nol ^«* ?he Labour leader’s 
most hostile opponents have 

Z r r™ d Uia i. he is a P°° r 

platform speaker. And he is 

getting better all the time. 

His courage - so often 
found ^ wanting during the 
miners strike— is growing too. 
Last year at Bournemouth Mr 
Km nock finally found the 
words to assault his Militant 
Tendency. Yesterday he stared 
the trade union barons full in 
the face and told them that if 
necessary, a Labour govern- 
ment could do without their 

His' vision spanned the 
generations. With all the pas- 
sion of a good conservative, he 
told his audience that societies 
exist in .time, that the present 
generation has obligations to 
the generation past and to 
generations to come — pen- 
sions and schools, in crude 
electoral currency. His theme 
was national unity, focussed in 
this speech on what he sees as 
the need to rebuild industry 
and reconstruct employment 

As always the 'Kinnock new 
deal was presented with little 
arithmetic, scant attention to 
the international dimension, 
and faint understanding of the 
weltsprings of economic activ- 
ity. There was, substantively, 
little new in his speech. There 
was nothing to boost the 
sceptics 1 confidence in his 
competence to govern the 
country. Yet as an exercise in 
revisionism, as a part of his 
campaign to fit his party for 
government it ranks with his 
performance at the Labour 
conference last year. 

Its point was the audience to 
>vhich he was speaking. Yes- 
terday Mr Kinnock showed his 
greatest mettle in forcing on 
the general secretaries the 
antagonism between national 
objectives as set out by an 
elected government and the 
organized self-interest of the 
unions. And — for yesterday at 
least — the general secretaries 
had little choice but .to accept 
his words. 

Interviewed. afterwards. Mr 
Ron Todd of the Transport 
and General Workers as good 
as admitted that the Kinnock 
definition of the onions as. 
sectional interests was correct 
When it came to it a Prime 
Minister (Labour or Conser- 
vative) could deal with the 
unions only as factions. The 
unions stand outside the circle 
of, legitimacy in governing 
Britain. Twenty years on. the 
point of Harold Wilson's bid 
to redefine the relationship of 
a Labour government and the 
unions looks to have been 
almost realised. 

What the practical con- 
sequence of yesterday’s lin- 
guistic accommodations will 
be has yet to be worked out in 
the TUC-Labour Party liaison 
committee and other such 
forums^ Mr Kinnock has. how- 
ever. set out the heads of 
agreement. They demand great 
concessions from the unions. 
He emphasized investment 
which can only take place at 
the expense of consumption, 
and wages. A new Kinnock 
word is efficiency., which 
surely means management's 
right to manage. Self-disci- 

pline was asked of the unions 
yesterday, a one-sided in- 
comes policy? 

In the light of previous 
failures of Statements of Intent 
and Social Contracts, perhaps 
formulae as vague as yes- 
terday's are 'safer. How many 
times before have general sec- 
retaries emerged from a sea- 
side debate promising fealty, 
only, months later, to lead 
their members 'in pursuit of. 
rewards unjusiifed by output 
measures and (in the public 
sector) unaffordable? 

But the most important 
implication of Mr Kinnock's 
speech goes beyond the stick- 
ing power of any one particular 
deaL It . is that This Great 
Movement of Ours is reaching 
the end of its useful life. For 
individual trade unionists to 
belong to the Labour Party and 
to work within it for ideologi- 
cal objectives is legitimate. For 
them to equate trade union- 
ism and some great 
emancipatory movement is 
dishonest The political objec- 
tives of trade unionism grow 
more and more obscure. 

Mr Kinnock. it seems, be- 
gins to see that, and what it 
means for the Labour Party in 
the country at large. The union 
general secretaries are reluc- 
tant to contemplate the mar- 
ginal position in the nation's 
life which they occupy. Mr 
Todd spoke yesterday of. in- 
dividual unionists fighting for 
policies within the Labour 
Party — but would they foigo 
the block voles? The logic of 
Mr Kinnock's “national” La- 
bour Party is. sooner rather 
than later, an end to their grip. 


.The gathering of the world's 
aviation clan at the 
Famborough airshow may not 
be quite as exciting as it once 
was to aircraft enthusiasts. The 
vast expense of developing 
sophisticated civil and mili- 
tary aircraft necessarily limits 
the number of new designs 
flying above the Hampshire 
countryside. That veiy ■ in- 
crease in cost and risk, how- 
ever, has intensified the 
decibel level of the industry's 
always noisy public politics. 

The battle over the future of 
Nimrod has given way. at least 
at Famborough, to the yet 
more complex question of 
competition in big long-dis- 
tance airliners. Boeing has 
consistently won more than 
half the world civil airliner 
market and is still perhaps, 
the only manufacturer that can 
be wholly confident of its long- 
term future. The four-nation 
European consortium. Airbus 
Industrie, in which British 
Aerospace has a 20 per cent 
share as specialist wingmaker, 
competes strongly at the small- 
er end of the market as does 
the American McDonnell 
Douglas. But Boeing domi- 
nates the market for long 
distance, large-capacity air- 
craft with ever more impres- 
sive versions of its 747. 
Lockheed has given up. Mc- 
Donnell Douglas's DC10 is- 
obsolete and Airbus has never 
been in this sector. 

Both Airbus and McDonnell 
have concluded that it would 
be unwise to compete head-on 
against Boeing's greatest area 
of strength. But the market for 
aircraft is improving dramati- 
cally because airlines are more 
profitable and oil prices no 
longer threaten the growth of 
passenger traffic. They see a 

place for slightly smaller long 
distance jets for secondary 
routes. - 

McDonnell is hoping to 
launch a new development 
from the DC 10. Airbus wants 
to spread its overheads by 
developing two new planes — 
the A330 and A340 ^ with 
many common .features, 
including the wings, the A330 . 
being a larger edacity aircraft 
for shorter distances. . 

The immediate . issue is 
whether the British govern- 
ment should advance British 
Aerospace the repayable 
launch aid .of perhaps £500 
million to finance its share of 
the Airbus plan to compete 
.across .the whole range with 
Boeing. In principle the Euro- 
pean industry ‘ could emerge 
much stronger in the long- 
term by developing a complete 
family of airliners. This, is the 
logic of the consortium, set up 
because no individual Euro- 
pean firm could do this. 

But British Aerospace is 
now a private company, unlike 
its French and German part- 
ners. Should the British tax- 
payer take the sort -of risks that 
the French an<T German gov- 
ernments are prepared to take 
on an essentially commercial 
project? If British Aerospace is 
not prepared to pay its share 
from its own stretched re- 
sources or by lapping the 
financial markets, does that 
not suggest the project is 

There is no simple answer. 
Clearly, commercial finance 
would' be much easier for such 
a long-term risk if interest 
rates were lower. But there is 
also an insufficiently ques- 
tioned tradition of launch aid, 
derived from the practice in 
military developments, which 

has come to be taken for 
granted in Europe. 

In practice, such aid is not a 
matter of all or nothing and 
this week's arguments are part 
of manoeuvring on all 
sides.The privatized company, 
for example, wants to pitch its 
bid high at the moment, since 
it- does not know exactly how 
much wfli be needed. . 

Mr Geoffrey Fame* the in- 
dustry minister responsible for 
aerospace, has suggested that 
part of the money, mightbetter 
be spent on -European space 
projects, in pan to press the 
consortium into a collabora- 
tion with : McDonnell The 
American company, in its 
turn, insisted this week that it 
was folly committed to its own 
new airliner, which is slightly 
more ambitious than the Air- 
bus equivalent This un- 
doubtedly poses a problem for 
Airbus, which has based the 
economics of its own develop- 
ment on the dual-purpose 

All this is the stuff of 
negotiation. H is still possible 
to take an entirely different 
approach to Airbus, as the 
laiecoming- Japanese . have 
shown, by aiming at smaller 
niches in the market British 
Aerospace has followed this 
strategy elsewhere on its own 

The overall Airbus idea 
does, however, have consid- 
erable virtues. Mr Pattie needs 
to minimize the risk to the 
taxpayer both by pushing 
collaboration and by insisting 
that British Aerospace puts up 
some of the money. The 
politics must inevitably end in 
a compromise. No wonder 
Mrs Thatcher looked askance 
at a European solution to the 
problems . of Britain's heli- 
copter industry. 

Teachers’ pay 

From Mr David A. Turner 
Sir. Sluan Sexton (article. August 
28) would like to abandon the 
national pay scales for teachers 
and return to the so-caileo free 
bargaining of yesteryear. 1 recall 
such a system when I was teaching 
in a verv wclI-csiaWisbed indepen- 
dent school in the United States, 
where a hardworking but 
unfoiccful middle-aged spinster 
teacher of classics was kept on a 
suhsisiencc-lcvd salaty whilst her 
male married physicist co league 
and her Russian female rollragfJj- 
were able to negotiate substantial 
annual increases. 

Such a system docs not .bring 
harmonv to a school. _ If wj 
returned to local bargaining not 
onlv would teacher be pitted 
against teacher, with consequent 
wastage of energy in negotiations, 
but the differentiation (already 
apparent in varving levels t> 
capitation, in-service grants etc; 
would be exacerbated so tint tne 
division between the North and 
South, between the innercuy and 
the suburbs, would thrive. -Tne 
losers would be the nations 
children. 94 per cent of whom are 
in the State system. , 

Sexton’s article contained an- 
other false assumption — nameiy 
that he can idemifr good 
cists, mathematicians and so on. 
and pay them more. All uw 
proposals 1 have seen simply pa. 
them more lor their shortage 
-value, regardless of quality. 

For instance, on the Post- 
Graduate Certificate of Education 
course on which I teach there will 
be in September a minority of 
students in named shortage areas 
who will receive, an additional 
government grant of £1.200. but 
1 there is no guarantee iHat tBey will 
all complete the course success- 
fully or be better teachers titan the 
other students. 

In a school, as a parent. I would 
want my children to be taught by 
good history teachers, good mu- 
sicians and so 'on. Are such 
teachers to be paid less than 
someone with a degree in physics, 
regardless of whether or not they 
fulfil the criteria for a good 
teacher? Mr Sexton surely fells to 
recognize that there is a difference 
between a good teacher and a 
shortage subject teacher.' 

I am sure that many of those 
such as myself who are fully 
involved in the State system of 
education welcome ibe develop- 
ment of positive steps to'improve 
the quality of teaching — indeed, 
wc have been working to this end 
for years. Wc sec the current Acas 
proposals as one step in that 
direction and -hope that Jbey 
prevail in the face of such ill 
thought-out schemes as those put 
forward by Stuart Sexton. 

Yours sincerely.

. From Mr keiih Catdkin 
Sir. Stuart Sexton’s article relatesa 
refreshing, radical approach for 
the remuneration of teachers. I. 
agree with him that good teachers 
would flourish in a free market 
and the pupils' education would 
benefit as a result. 

As a physics teacher — in short 
supply 1 — 1 could demand, and 
obtain, a more attractive salary, 
unlike at present where the nation- 
ally. fixed wage prevents the 
operation of market forces in 

Since I enjoy teaching this 
makes me frustrated especially 
when I read in the Institute of 
Physics remuneration survey 
{Physics Bulletin. May 1986/ that 
the mean salary of physicists in 
employment is £3.000 per annum 
more than a head of department 
(in his/her thirties) on scale 4 in a 
secondary school. 

I am convinced that if Stuart 
Sexton’s .real pay deal was im- 
plemented it would benefit the 
able teacher, reverse the worsen- 
ing shortage of teachers in certain 
subjects, notably physics, ensure 
quicker promotion and restore the 
professionalism to teaching. The 
whole education system would be 
the beneficiary. 

Yours faithfully.

A loss of time 
in hospital 

From Mr Henry Shaw 
Sir. I write as the senior surgeon in 
a well-known London cancer hos- 
pital where the patients and both 
medical and nursing staff have 
just had to endure another “statu- 
tory hospital holiday'*— imposed 
by the DHSS some years ago on all 
health districts —’added to the 
August bank holiday weekend 

This takes place twice annually 
and recently meant that all the 
administrative and paramedical 
staff disappeared from 5.30 pm on 
Friday. August 22 to 9.30 am on 
Wednesday. August 27. a total 
minimum of 1 12 hours, or thebest 
part of five days’ absence. Doctors 
and nurses arc .expected to carry 
on dealing with a full complement, 
of seriously ill patients as 
including all emergencies. 

Effectively this means that lab- 
oratory reports are unobtainable, 
all laboratories and special in- 
vestigation departments such as 
radiology, pathology and 
haematology are closed although 
a. member of staff remains “on 
call", often at a considerable 
distance. Furthermore, since sec- 
retarial staff are also absent 
communication for enquiries, 
appointments and liaison is seri- 
ously impaired 

Indeed Sir. this hospital which 
prides itself on being a “caring 
institution'*, is, I believe, only one 
of many upon which and upon 
whose patients is inflicted this 
uncaring administrative dis- 

Perhaps this letter may serve to 
illuminate another of the many 
unneessary impositions of our 
much admired hospital service 
and its new managers. 

Yours feitbfuly.

Henry Moore 

From Mr John Brathy, BA 
Sir. I am not going to cry over or 
regret the passing of Henry Moore. 

In fed I'll celebrate his wonder- 
ful creative life and its just rewards 
— the Protestant ethic so 
unpopular today — and the fact 
that he achieved a fine longevity 
( 88 ). 

If he'd died at 50. when he'd not 
done all he had to do. I'd feel the 
fetes were crueL as they were to 
Aubrey Beardsley (25). Laura 
Ashley (60). Glen Gould (50). 
Leonid Rossiter (57). Richard 
Burton (58). John Gilpin (53). Eric 
Morecambe (58). Robert Shaw 
(51). David Mercer (52). Ken 
Tynan (S3) and Sir John Methven . 

Just be happy Moore lived a 
fully realized, fulfilled and ap- 
plauded long span of nearly nine 
decades. No fears when Picasso 
died in his nineties either. 

Yours sincerely.

Value of grammar 

From Mrs P. £ Daly 
Sr. Your correspondent, Mr J. M. 
Hawes, today (August 26) drew 
attention to the feilure of English 
schools to teach grammar and thus 
to prepare their pupils for learning 
foreign languages. This point is 
carried further by my experience 
when confronted by a 15-year-old 
who cannot see what is obscure in 
a sentence used in an English 
essay, sometimes I can only 
explain it by using terms he has 
learned in French or German 
lessons (seldom now in Latin, 

It is so often easier to explain to 
one who has learned English as a 
foreign language. Recognition of 
subject and object, an infinitive, 
or a relative clause. let alone an 
adverb or preposition, can still be 
helpful and time-saving. 

Yours faithfully.

From Mrs D. .4. Potts

eventually had to show her how to

reassuringly and said: “She's just 
got her 0-level maths”.

Moral issues and the Vatican 

Frmnrhe Bishop of Northampton 
Sir. Father Kevin Kelly's article 
'(August 30) underlines the need 
for effective dialogue within the 
Roman Catholic Church between 
those with episcopal authority and 
pastoral responsibility and many 
of its moral theologians. The 
tensions revealed arc considerable 
and clashes arc inevitable if others 
Feel free to maintain publicly 
similar positions on so wide a 
range of moral issues. 

Underlying issues of meth- 
odology and responsibility must 
be central to the dialogue. It is to 
be hoped that ft may be conducted 
in a way that is pesiorally helpful. 

1 fear that Father Kelly's contribu- 
tion is both tendentious and 

First of all. his references to the 
“official" position are calculated 
to suggest a gap between the Pope 
and the Vatican on the one side 
and the rest of the episcopate on 
the other. This simply will not da 
since no such division exists 
where these areas of moral teach- 
ing arc concerned. 

How this leaching is handled 
pasiorally and applied com- 
passionately may vary, but there is 
a large degree of unity about the 
fundamental moral values in- 
volved and the "official" position 
can make a justifiable daim to be 
universal. That does not mean 
that those who support it would 
recognise and accept Father 
Kdly's account of iL It is neither 
so dosed as he suggests, nor so 
wanting in compassion. 

Equally unacceptable is Father 
Kelly's arrogation of Vatican H*s 
insights to his own point of view. 
Readers will need to verify in 
greater detail the “general 
approach” he cites from the 
Council documents. He risks a 
gross oversimplification. 

He is also in danger of weaken- 
ing the objective weight given to a 
person's actions in traditional 
moral considerations. Conscience 
docs not have anything to fear 
from these considerations, nor is 
the person devalued by their beiife 
made. They may need to be* 
broadened and extended, but they 
should not be minimized or 
marginalized. They were not „ 
abandoned by Vatican IL 

Father Kelly speaks of feeing 
issues honestly. That is entirely 
desirable. He can help us to do so. 
1 would not be honest if I did not 
say that on many of the issues he 
raises the "official" position car- 
ries with it more authority than he 
allows. There is room for serious 
probing and questioning, but not 
for ibc kind of open dissent that 
leads nobody forward. 

The “official” position, prop- 
erly described, has the status of 
doctrine and within the Church we 
need the support of one 
delineate and understand it. and 
then to lire by it. 

Yours faithfully. 
(Chairman, Theology Committee 
of the Episcopal Conference of 
England and Wales). 

Bishop's House; 


August 30. 

From the Rev Dr James Toffiurst 
Sir. The arguments about 
“official" Church teaching and the 
stance of Vatican II which surface 
in Father Kevin Kelly's article 
make moral theology seem like a 
game of cops and robbers. 

There is a consistent teaching 
within the Catholic Church (which 
embraces both Vatican II and 
present Vatican teaching) that is 
concerned to safeguard life from 
conception to the grave and to 
centre sex within that context. 
Such teaching is hardly given a 
chance to be considered owing to 
the continual misrepresentation 
3nd denigration which it receives, 
often by those who have been 
given a mandate by the same 
official Church herself. 

By all means let us have 
discussion: but this involves the 
principle, audi alteram partem. 
The critics* arguments prevent the 
case for the Church's consistent 
view from being heard and play 
upon the known sympathy of the 
public for anyone in the dock. 
Yours faithfully.

Speed writing 

From Mr Jack Adrian 
Sir, Of course a 20.000-word story 
can be written in three days 
(Spectrum. August 29). George 
Teed, one of (he best Sexton Blake 
writers of the 1920s and 1930s, 
was a demon typist who could 
produce. regularly 2.000 words an 
hour, clean copy. And be didn't 
write junk, either. A 25,000-word 
Blake story- took him two days; a 

60.000- word Sexton Blake Library 
novel took him a week. In his 
prime Charles Hamilton (Frank 
Richards) was achieving two 

22.000- word stories a week, for the 
Gem and the Magnet, plus a 
10.000 to 12,000- word short (and 
probably more besides). 

In any case, 20,000 words is 
hardly novel-length. Edgar Wal- 
lace produced his 80, 000- word 
thriller. The Devil Man , over a 
weekend (vouched for by Sir 
Patrick Hastings), and one of his 
best . and most tightly-plotted 
thrillers. The Coat of Arms, was 
also finished in three days. 

In October of 1920 Frederick 
Faust (best known as Max Brand, 
although he used a score of 
pseudonyms) hammered out 
190,000 publishable words in 13 
days. That's roughly 14.500 words 
a day. or a 60.000-word book 
every four and a bit days. And that 
was when he’d only been writing 
for three years. 

Yours sincerely.

Tied up in London 

From the Secretary’ of Movement 
for London 

Sir. Your excellent leader on the 
M25 (August 26) points out that 
improvements to the North Cir- 
cular (A406) and its proposed 
extension into south London will 
reduce pressure on the new motor- 
way. It is a pity that the Govern- 
ment have no plans to build a 
similar road in south London, as 
surely this is the only way that the 
obvious inadequacies at the south- 
western section of the motorway 
can be tackled in the long term. 

The speedy decision to widen 
M25 around the M3 is to be 
welcomed, but h is strange that the 
section between M4 and M40, 
where bridges are already wide 
enough for eight lanes and where 
land is in public ownership, is not 
to be widened at the same time. 
We warned the Department of 
Transport that eight lanes would 
be necessary for parts of the M25 
at public inquiries in the 1970s. 

The feilure to heed this warning 

has cost the taxpayer dear, the five 
mile section (junctions 1 1 to 13) 
that is to have two extra lanes cost 
£1.1 million per lane/mile to build 
at 1986 prices, whereas the widen- 
ing will cost £2m per lane/mile. 

If the motorway had been built 
to eight-lane standard in the first 
place the Exchequer would have 
saved £t 1m on this short section. 
These figures are low because no 
extra land has to be acquired and 
the bridges do not need widening. 

Because the costs of widening 
other sections of M25 would be so 
high we think that the Govern- 
ment should now consider new 
modern orbital highways within 
Greater London, particularly in 
the south, which wifi relieve the 
M25 in the 1990s when it mil be a 
major feeder road to the Channel

Farmers’ plight 

From Lord Stanley ofAlderley _ 
Sir, Your leading article. “Banking 
on the land" (August 28) correctly 
points to the fen in land prices 
caused by the agricultural reces- 
sion but ignores the problems of 
(he tenant fanners who still work 
40 per cent of the country's forms. 
.. whilst many tenants' balance 
sheets may look reasonably 
healthy, their current and future 
profit and loss accounts are not so, 
mainly due to t be escalation over 
the past years of rents that have 
climbed in sympathy with land 
prices. New tenants have had no 

option but to accept totally un- 
economic rents. 

It is therefore essential for the 
long-term wellbeing of the in- 
dustry for these unrealistic rents to 
fell in line with land prices and 
unless the institutions and the 
fond agents who advise them 
accept this the industry will slide 
into an unnecessarily deep de- 
pression and so harm the whole 
rural economy and social struc-

Result* nf the League matches 
played on this day and reported in 
the next issue of the paper show 
20 teams in the League

League. The names in the Football 
League vary little from those of 

today, except for Gainsbontugh 
Trinity nha beat Glossop 3-0 in 
the Second Division 



(From a Correspondent.) 

League football is always in foil 
swing on the first Saturday in 
September, however sultry the 
weather may be. the professionals 
having prepared themselves for the 
ordeal of playing a winter game in 
summer weather by a series of trial 
matches during August. Except 
that the "gates" (sometimes ex- 
ceeding £100. so eager is the 
professional spectator to take exer- 
cise by proxy) are given to hospi- 
tals and other charitable 
institutions, there is nothing what- 
ever to be said in favour of those 
August matches, which sometimes 
account fur the disappearance of 
well-known professionals from 
their county elevens king before 
the dose of the cricket season. 
Indeed some authorities believe 
that, by adding to the burden of the 
season's work, such unseasonable 
games actually defeat the end in 
view, that of enabling dub commit- 
tees to make the best use of the 
material at their disposal. That 
they interfere with cricket to some 
extent is an unquestionable (act, 
which has already been recognized 
by some of the Northern cricket 
club6 which, ceteris paribus, prefer 
lu engage professionals who do not 
take any part in professional 
fnntbalL There is no denying, 
unfortunately, that the interests of 
cricket are deliberately ignored by 
some nf the League syndicates, the 
directors of which go su (ar as to 
assert that cricket is not a suffi- 
ciently strenuous game to keep 
their hirelings “fit* 1 for their eight 
months of hard football. That is 
the reason, no doubt, why they are 
encouraging the play of baseball 
by their men. (To judge by the form 
of the learns in the En glish 
Baseball Association Final Cup tie. 
which was fought out by two 
Southern League clubs the other 
day. the standard of proficiency 
reached by the professional nines 
in this country is very low. Any 
team of American schoolboys could 
have beaten the winners of the Cup 
at their leisure.) 

There are signs, however, that 
professional Association football is 
passing into a more healthy state. 
There has been a great decrease in 
the number of players transferred 
from one club to another — for a 
consideration — and the costly 
imported Scot is not nearly so 
frequent as In past seasons, the 
League directorates having discov- 
ered that it pays better to seek for 
the raw material, of team-building 
at home. All this makes for the 
recognition of the territorial prin- 
ciple, which, by the way. has never 
been neglected by the more sports- 
manlike dubs engaged in the 
League competition. Rather late in 
the day it has been discovered (1) 
that (he crowd invariably takes 
more interest in the bome-grown 
home-made player, than in any 
"foreigner”, however excellent his 
play, and (2) that a team made up 
nf local talent does nut lose its 
patrons in a period of adversity. 

The true sportsman's objections 
to professional football would be 
minimized if every team was 
composed of men born and raised 
within its sphere of influence. 
Furthermore, the true value of the 
bona fide amateur is at last 
recognized by the League dubs. 
His presence is no longer regarded 
as objectionable because his style 
of play differs from that of his 
professional companions and be- 
cause he cannot be expected to 
fraternize too fervently with them. 
It is seen that he brings new life 
into the game (which is not work 
but play to him) and that the effect 
of his presence on the moral of the 
team is often invaluable. Here is 
one reason why one or two of the 
leading lights in the Football 
Association are- beginning to think 
that peace should be made with the 
Amateur Football Association . . . 

It is not possible to regard 
professional football, which takes 
so many thousands into the open 
air every week, as altogether 
outside the pale of sportsmanship. 
The average professional player is 
a good sportsman and a good 
fellow; there is no reason in the 
nature of things why he should not 
attain the status of the professional 
cricketer, a type whom we all like 
and admire. Hitherto, however, the 

question of money-making has 
been paramount with his employ- 
ers. and he has been compelled, 
often against his wifi, to indulge in 
discreditable tactics in order to win 
League “points" or avoid losing 
them. At the present moment more 
League dubs are in pecuniary 
difficulties than has ever been the 
case before, and the syndicates are 
beginning u> see that football is not 
really a money-making business. 
When they also see that it ought 
not to be a commercial'' affair we 
may hope for the cessation of many

Earliest Irish roads found 

By Norman Hammond, Archaeology Correspondent 

Wooden trackways across a bog in central 
Ireland, excavated over the past two summers, 
are the earliest known roads in the island. 
Radiocarbon dates for one of the roads show 
that it was constructed around 1250 BC and 
another track found this month is probably 
equally early. 

The tracks cross a long stretch of bog at 
Coriea. Co Longford, linking the dry ground to 
the east and west over a distance of about a 
kilometre where the bog is at its narrowest 
They were found when peat-cutting by the 
Irish Peat Board sliced through a laier track on 
the same route; and a local amateur archaeolo- 
gist reported the find. 

The latest and most impresive of the 
trackways, which are being excavated by Dr 
Barry Rafiery, of the National University of 
Ireland, dates to (he Iron Age. Tree-ring 
dating, carried out in Belfast, links the oak 
timbers used to the long sequence of some 
seven thousand years recently established {The 
Times , June 24 1 986), and shows that the track 
was constructed in precisely 148 BC. 

It consists of two birchwood rails laid some 
two metres apart, held by birch pegs in 
particularly wet spots to prevent sliding, and 
supporting a corduroy road of split oak planks 
laid like railway sleepers but closer tdfeether to 
give a continuous surface. Someofthe sleepers 
were mortised and pegged down to prevent 
shifting, the longest of them is about four 

metres (14 ft) long and nearly half a metre (18 
inches) square. 

“It takes four men just to lift the biggest 
sleepers, and the oaks were felled several miles 
away”. Dr Raftery said. Since the Toad was 
built w take wheeled carts, however, moving 
the timbers would have been relatively easy. 
So far. Dr Raftery has uncovered more than 
120 metres (130 yards) of the Iron Age road. 

Lying almost parallel to the later road, half a 
metre lower and much more lightly built, is the 
Late Bronze Age trackway, for which radio- 
carbon dates of 1020 BC suggest a true age 
around 1250 BC Some 30 metres (33 yards) of 
this have been exposed, and the line of the 
track has been seen in several ditches cut by 
the peat board. 

The line was laid out with a series of birch 
pegs driven into the bog surface about half a 
metre apart. Bundles of straight birch rods 
were then laid along the direction of the track, 
covered with a layer of bundles laid crosswise, 
and capped with a third layer laid lengthwise. 
The bundles were up to two metres long, and 
were held by birch ijegs. 

At the be ginning of August a third track, also 
of brushwood and at the, same depth as the 
Bronze Age track, was seen in a ditch cut- 

in genera! structure the Irish trackways are 
similar to the well-known examples from the 
Somerset Levels, described by Bryony and 
John Coles in their new book. Sweet Track to 
Glastonbury (Thames & Hudson, £2 8.00).

The green-lipped Mussel, a 
traditional Maori dish^ has 
been fotrad by scientists to be 
an effective treatment for 

Rheumatoid arthritis is a 
chronic disease of connective 
tissue. Pain and inflammation 
can be controlled with aspirin 
and Other analgesics bat these 
have side effects, such as 
Meedfng of the stomach. 

In severe cases, steroid hor- 
mones such as cortisol and 
cortisone give relief, but they 
tend in disturb the chemical 
balance of the body. 

The extract from the green- 
tipped mussel was discovered 
to have anti-inflammatory 
properties several years ago 
when American scientists 
screened varieties of shellfish 
for anti-cancer activity after 
reports that a dam was 
effective. - 

The researchers injected 
ywMfif vpIIc io animate and 

then injected extracts of vari- 
ous shellfish. They found that 

iipp^mnssel on the slte*of 
inflammation caused by the 
cancer cells reduced the in- 
flammation bat did nothing to 
stop the cancer. 

Doctors in Auckland, New 
Zealand and Melbourne, 
Australia, then started lab- 
oratory experiments and found 
that the mussel extract was far 

By Beatrice Lacoste 

more effective in preventing 
the swelling and pain asso- 
ciated with arthritis than any 
of the conventional drugs. 

Dr Bob Borland, of the 
Royal Melbourne Institute of 
Technology, has just pub- 
lished the results of a four- 
year study on the use of the 

He found that the extract 
from the green-lipped mussel 
is a safe, natural alternative to 
sometimes harmful drag ther- 
apy. “I was sceptical when I 
first started ■work, bat I am 
now convinced that it has a 
significant contribution to 
make in the treatment of any 
inflammatory condition”, he 

At the Royal Homeopathic 
Hospital in Glasgow a pilot 
study found that 60 per cent of 
arthritis sufferers and 40 per 
cent of osteoarthritis bene- 

fitted from the mussel therapy. 
The pilot study lasted three 
months and involved 34 pa- 
tients given a daily gramme of 
dried mussel, and 34 others 
given a placebo. 

Dr Robin Gibson at the 
hospital said he first used the 
remedy, exported from New 
Zealand and marketed under 
the name Seatone, on an 
elderly patient several years 
ago and was so impressed by 
die results that he decided to 
carry out the study. 


Noted Anglican theologian 
in West Africa 

Canon Harry Sawyerr, CBE. 
a theologian and teacher, 
whose department of theology 
al the University of Siena 
Leone enjoyed a considerable 
reputation throughout Africa, 
died recently in Freetown. He 
was ?6. 

Harry Alphonso Ebiin 
Sawyerr was born in Freetown 
on October 16, 1909, the son 
of Canon Obrien Sawyerr. He 
was educated at the Pnnce of 
Wales School and Fourah Bay 
College, where he graduated in 
1933 and remained on the 
staff as a tuior. 

At that time, the college 
(now part of the university) 
was little more than a small 
missionary foundation, and 
Sawyerr had to fight many 
battles to maintain its survival 
and its academic standards. 

It was not until 1 943 that he 
went to St John's College, 
Durham, to train for the 
priesthood. He was ordained 
two years later. His professor 
at St John's was Michael 
Ramsey, for whose scholar- 
ship Sawyerr retained an abid- 
ing admiration. 

He returned to Fourah Bay, 
as a lecturer, then chaplain 
from 1948 to 1956. Further 
conflict awaited him when the 
proud determination of Sierra 
Leoneans to maintain the 
oldest university institution in 
Africa clashed with colonial 
planners who believed that 
University College Ibadan 
could meet all foreseeable 
academic needs of the region. 

Sawyerr taught theology, 
philosophy, education and 
mathematics, and became one 
-of the leading theologians in 
West Africa. He was vice- 
principal from 1956 to 1958 

and again from 1964 to 1968, 
when he was appointed princi- 
pal. He was professor of 
theology from 1962 to 1974. 
and vice-chancellor of the 
university from 1970 to 1972. 

He also found time for the 
World Council of Churches on 
whose Faith and Order Com- 
mission he served from 1962 
to 1975. He was made a canon 
of St George's Cathedral. Free- 
town. in 1961. 

4n his retirement be re- 
mained active in church af- 
fairs as a teacher of ordinands, 
in Barbados as wen as in 
Sierra Leone. Advancing years 
barely diminished his delight 
in exploring the frontiers of 

He wrote extensively on 
African religion. Christian and 
non-Christian. Among his 
many works are Creative 
Evangelism and The Springs 
of Mende Belief and Conduct 
(1968). the latter acknowl- 
edged as required reading for 
churchpeople working in Sier- 
ra Leone. He was one of the 
country's few Creoles who 
spoke and wrote Mende flu- 
ently. which made him a 
useful bridge between the 
people of Freetown and those 
of the provinces. 

Harry Sawyerr dedicated 
bis life to the cause of Chris- 
tianity in Africa, and sought to 
root the Christian Gospel in 
soil prepared by African cos- 
mologies. He was sincere, 
energetic and direct and never 
shunned academic controver- 
sy. He made himself available 
six days a week: Thursday was 
his day of rest 

He married Edith Edwin in 
1 935. There was a daughter of 
the marriage.

Laws at the University of 
London since 1967, wbo made 
enduring contributions to the 
study of Islamic law, died an 
August 30. He was 58. 

Born on August 18, 1 928, at 
Blackrod, Lancashire, he was 
educated at Wigan Grammar 
School from which, at the age 
of (7. he won an open 
scholarship to Keble College, 
Oxford, where he took a

Some readers will have seen

have forgotten the terrifying 
effect of those slow, stylized 
confrontations, the elaborate

mensely detailed, prosaic 
preparation for the ritual sui- 
cide. Speeded it up, done in a 
mixture of imitation Kabuki, 
modern mime and ballet

ror each other's qualities fairly 

On this Prom's evidence. 
Andrew Davis has shaped the 
Toronto Symphony into a 
warin-so unding. highly com- 
petent band: neat, hard-work- 
ing and with some excellent 
soloists in principal positions. 

But for Mahler's Ninth 
Symphony one looks for 
rather more, or perhaps rather 
less: less urbanity, more vi- 
olence: less of an all-perva- 
sive. solid “blend", more raw 
incisiveness in (he projection 
of savage counterpoints: less 
of. an almost jaunty quality 
that turned the angry Rondo- i 
Burlesque into a picturesque | 
tone-poem and erased the 
handler's satirical sting, more | 
snarl - especially from the ^ 
brass. *: . •' I 

It was o.nly in the final j 
Adagio^ where one sensed the j 
strings straining every sinew ! 
and where a degree of emo- | 
lional reticence is appropriate j 
for those lonely instrumental 
duets, that the orchestra and 
conductor at last indicated 
they might have an inkling of 
what this music means. And 
even here the violins seemed 
reluctant to play out the 
poignant glissandos. although 
they, were perfectly acceptable 
when audible. • . . ! 

The wonder of Davis s j 
interpretation of the fir® 1 
movement was how he man- j 
agfri tn make those normally ' 
savage climaxes — passages 
designed to tear the musics i 
momentum apart - so com- 
fortable and sonorous. One 
could tell why his Richard 
Strauss .is so admired. jVnd it 
was. precisely because his 
shaping of ihe written 
rallcmandos was conveyed 
■ expertly lb. his alert players 
that - one wished ' he had 
adopted a more flexible ap- 
proach, to the yearning Siring 
phrases. * . '

fine impression in the 1984

guished work in the first- 
movement cadenza did not 
help. Only in the Andante

Wanderlust has struck the British cinema, to 
judge from our national exhibits at the 43nd 
Venice Film FestivaL Ken Loach, who has 
always seemed the most British of directors, 
shot Fatherland largely m Germany, with 
German dialogue. The story concerns a 
dissident East German political singer who 
defects to the West ..— only to find that 
capitalism, just like communism, has ways 
(from the politics of show-business) 
to keep people in line. - - • 

‘ The film . represents an unexpected 
collaboraiion'withnhe writer TrevorGriffifos. 
Griffiths's trim, didactic style is far from 
. Loach's preferred method of improvisation. 
Loach's temperament seems to dominate the 
expository section of the film - the singer’s 
flight from cast to west and the first shock of 
disillusionment The later scenes, set in 
England, are more a writer’s conception and 
the plot returns to familiar ground -— Nazi- 
tiuni melodrama and the paranoia of surveil- 
lance - and the political reflections become 
more schematic. 

Nanou, ihe debut feature of Conny 
Tcmplcman. a National Bangor FQm School 
graduate, is set and shot in France, with a lot of 
French dialogue. The young Englishwoman of 
the title finds herself at a loose end after a holi- 
day job in France falls through, and moves in 
with a young industrial terrorist, shoplifter 
and creep. AU too slowly the scales of first ro-. 
maqtic love fall from her eyes, sending -her. 
back sadder but wiser to home and college in 
bourgeois Britain. - _ 

Templeman is a promising director, who 
shows she can do a lot without words. The 
problem with Nanou is" that she cannot 
sufficiently detach herself from her heroine. 
Some comment, criticism or humour was 
needed to forestall the audience’s exasperation 
that the fool girt does hot pack her bags an 
hour sooner. 

James IvoryVA Room wMt a View, of 
course, is the story of an earlier and fester- 
developing Englishwoman abroad. The pres- 
ence of the film iri the Venice competition has 
been controversial;, by strict festival rules n 
should be disqualified, as H has already had 
international distribution. 


Bravely sticking it out at home; Tony Bicat's 
The Christmas Present is a whimsical jeu 
d‘ esprit about what happens when Mary, 
Joseph and the spirit of the reformed Scrooge 
come back respectively to seek and dispense 
charity in. the high-rise hovels of contem- 
porary London. Ai feature length it outgrows 
its strength, but it slays' likeable and inter- 
mittently inventive* 

The French cinema, not very strong on the 
international scene recently, fields the largest 
■national entry in this year’s Venice, com- 
. petition. The first films on show~were both by 
veterans from before the. New Wave. Alain 
Resnais is 64 and claims to have made his fist 
■film m 1936. Eric Rohmer is 66 and in films 
since 1950. 

Resnais's Mao is an odd caprice, an 
adaptation of an often filmed play of 1926 
about love, loyalty and deception by Henri 
Bernstein. Resnais's version is shot as if on 
stage. with a drop curtain between acts and 
stylish art deco sets. The director states his 
purposes enigmatically: “We have to get rid of 
things that have nothing to do with foe film. 
The director is thereto say: be careful, here the 
style is changing. We are ijo longer within the 
-edicts of the film." 

The style is daring only in its monotony: foe 
text and foe playing of Sabine- Azema and 
AndrS Dussollier and the overall elegance is 
jiisLsuffident to keep interest alive. 

Rohmer's Le Rayon vert is foe best film seen 
m Venice so fer. Number five in his series of 
“comedies and proverbs", it differs from its 
predecessors nr retying on improvisation 
rather than Rohmer’s uaial precise script. 

it is the story of a woman (Marie Riviere) no 
more neurotic than the rest of us, whose overly 
- romantic view of love condemns her to a 
lonely search. Rohmer gives a day-by-day 
account of her disastrous summer holiday, 
frantically looking for Mr Right and as 
frantically spuming the willing Mr Wrongs 
who present themselves. 

Rohmer is a generous chronicler of senti- 
ments and the human heart Here be achieves 
the considerable feat of sustaining concern and 
affection for a lachrymose lady who by strict 
standards is -a. pain in. the neck. 

The Maintenance 


It has been said that the main 
cause of marital collapse is not 
adultery but carpentry, and 
this view gets strong support 
in Richard Harris's new play. 

Bob, a television writer who 
quits the stormy matrimonial 
home to live with an under- 
standing physiotherapist, is in 
most respects a stock charac- 
ter. .What sets him apart from 
other defeated husbands bolt- - 
ing for cover is suggested in 
foe title. 

' Not only is he ready to pay 
ail the femily bills, he also has 
a passion for heme improve- 
ment which survives foe col- 
lapse unscathed. He may be 
living with Diana, but. he is 
always drifting back to Chris- 
tine to pul up a few shelves: 
with the result that he never 
really leaves home at all; - 
. That sounds like a comic 
device: but although, it fre- 
:quently spirals into desperate 
laughter. The Maintenance 
Man is not a.comedy. Much of 
it' consists of lacerating rows 
between the estranged couple; . 
rows that have nothing to do 
with Bob's woodwork. He 
comes over as a workaholic 
and a half-hearted husband 
who goes in for little lies in foe 
hope of a quiet life. 

It is all painfully true, but it 
js difficult to know precisely 
how to take it given the play’s 
abrupt changes of focus. The 

setting seems to* be partly 
objective, and partly inside 
Bob's head. 

The opening scene with the 
shelves, for instance, gives 
wav to a monologue in which 
he outlines his plight. There- 
after present tense scenes 
alternate with direct address, 
flashbacks, and group scenes 
foal move into fantasy; as 
where the trio go through 
“perfect people" routines: or. 
more often, enact the hero's 
mounting frenzy of conflicting 

Theatrically such scenes are 
underlined by the use of. a 
single domestically cluttered 
set (by Tim Bickerton) for 
both houses: so that Bob may 
be changing a light bulb for 
Diana and then getting Chris- 
tine to switch it on. 

The impression of Roger 
Clissolcf s production, is .of a 
lithe intelligent play struggling 
.to escape a morass of pain and . 
guilt. . Whatever its ' formal 
confusion, - it - - contains two 
meaty roles for the unhappy 
couple which yield a superb 
acting partnership: the :hang- 
dog John Alderton writhing in 
agonies of forbearance and 
frustrated violence; and Gwen 
Taylor point-scoring as if with 
a bloody sledgehammer, and 
then revealing the hurt that 
drives her to it 

The role of Diana is under- 
written. but Susan Pcnhaligon 
scores whenever she is re- 
leased from prosaic adultery 
into comic nightmare. ' 

' ■ Irving Wardle 

For King and 


It was an exquisite piece of 
timing to open a revival of 
John Wilson's play about the 
execution for cowardice of a 
First World War soldier 'foe 
evening after television audi- 
ences had witnessed a similar 
episode in The Sfonocoled 

Wilson had a quarter- 
century's head start on Alan 
Bleasdale. and today his 
polemical piece comes across 
more as a tribute to foe liberal 
impulses of foe early 1960s 
rather than as a condemnation 
of inhumanity. The anti-war 
theme remains as valid as 
ever, but the' specific issue of 
capital- punishment has nec- 
essarily lost its teeth. * 

Alan Strachan's production 
'also suffers by comparison 
with the Joseph Losey film 
version, which had Tom 
Courtenay and Dirk Bogarde 
in' the principal roles, and 
where the victim was taken 
out and shot instead of being 
put out of his misery in the 
shell-shocked stable of Ber- 
nard Culshaw's evocative set 

Here, Paul, Clarkson plays 
life condemned Private Hamp 
as a gawky, unsoldierly 

squaddie whose frankness and 
eagerness to please lend 
weight to ihe repeated image 
of his pending execution as 
putting down a dog. 

The trouble with Hamp - a 
volunteer of 1914 who finally, 
unexpectedly, cracked under 
the strain - is that throughout 
the ordeal of the court martial 
and the subsequent wait for 
his Iasi dawn, he remains 
polite and obedient, rather 
like Schwcik without foe 
satirical intern. In many re- 
spects. he is too good to be 
true, and it is left to his gaolers 
to express outrage at his fete. 

Alex Jennings is suitably 
boyish, in a prefcctly way. as 
ihe subaltern appointed to 
defend him. and their ex- 
changes do justice to the 
script's secondary concern 
with the mutual respect and 
tenderness that may exist 
between the classes - 

David Maltinson gives a 
convincing account of Hamp*s 
platoon commander, the offi- 
cer who draws the short straw 
to command the firing party, 
and Crawford Logan turns in 
an acute cameo of the dour, 
snappish medico to whom all 
soldiers not actually gaping 
.with wounds are shirkers to be 
treated with laxatives.

Visa demands 
lead to new 
staff dispute 

Dorset Iron Age settlement yields up its secrets 

By Robin Young 

The Government's inten- 
tion to require visas for vis- 
itors from five Asian and 
African countries was causing 
confusion yesterday — not 
least in the British High 
Commissions in the countries 


StafT said that they did not 
know when the system was 
due to begin, or what staff wifi 
be available to administer it. 
although the Home Office 
interpreted the Home 
Secretary's announcement 
that the scheme would be 
started as quickly as possible 
as meaning “probably before 
the end of the year". 

There is a wide divergence 
of opinion between the Home 
Office and the Foreign and 
Commonwealth Office, which 
usually share immigration 
control duties abroad, as to 
the new requirements. The 
Home Office said that it 
estimated an extra 50 entry 
clearance officers would be 
required in the five countries 
— India. Pakistan. Bangla- 
desh. Ghana and Nigeria. 

But the Foreign and 
Commonwealth Office said 
that the scheme would require 
at least 150 additional staff, 
and another 100 to cope with 
the summer seasonal rush. 

Both departments agreed 
that in the first instance the 
Home Office immigration ser- 
vice would probably have to 

provide almost all the addi- 
tional personnel. 

The Home Office said that 
the countries whose nationals, 
would be required to carry 
visas were those from which 
there was pressure to emigrate 
to Britain. Initial refusals to 
admit nationals of these coun- 
tries at Gaiwick and 

Heathrow airports had in- 
creased by 68 per cent iii the 
first six months of this year 
compared with 1985. 

There are about 70 Home, 
and Foreign Office staff in the 
immigration service in the 
five countries. Despite -its 
much smaller number of vis- 
itors Bangladesh has more 
entry clearance officers than 
India, because most applica- 
tions there are for settlement. 

Though those seeking to 
stav can provide themselves 
with entry permits before 
departure, relatively few such 
permits are issued. In India 
the total in 1985 was 5,000. 

AH the five countries except 
Pakistan require visas from 
British visitors. 

The introduction of visas 
may not lower the need for 
vigilance at Heathrow and 
Gatwick. When visas were 
required of Sri Lankans last 
year, because of problems 
with Tamil refugees, it was not 
long before Sri Lankans were 
arriving with visas pro- 
fessionally forged. 

Whitehall closes ranks 

Whitehall closed ranks hast- 
ily yesterday after reports of 
disharmony between the 
Home Office and the Foreign 
Office (George Hill writes). 

After unusually strong in- 
dications of Foreign Office 
discomfort at being 
“bounced** into the new visa 
policy by Mr Douglas Hurd, 
the Home Secretary, at the 
meeting of Cabinet ministers 
on Monday, it was stressed 
that Sir Geoffrey Howe, the 
Foreign Secretary, was “in 
total agreement" with the

By Alan Hamilton 

Some of the finest Iron Age remains of 
their type have been uncovered daring 
summer excavations at Maiden Castle 
in Dorset, one of the largest and best 
examples is Europe of a pre-historic hill 

Archaeologists have found the 
clearly- visible foundations of three cir- 
cular houses dating from about 200 BC, 
complete with stone ovens and paved 
entrance porches, and a complex of huge 
grain storage pits as weD as ornaments, 
weapons and more than 30,000 animal 

The excavation completes work on the 
fort begun by the late Sir Mortimer 
Wheeler but abandoned in 1937; and 
confirms the belief that the long, low 
ramparted hiD above Dorchester, occu- 
pied from 5,000 BC until the Roman 
Conquest, was a rich Celtic political and 
economic centre with a population of at 
least 1,000. 

A newly-completed geomagnetic sur- 

vey of the 100-acre hilltop shows it to be 
almost entirely covered by man-made 
pits and foundations beneath its rush 

English Heritage, which funded the 
£100,000 project, timed it to coincide 
with the 11th International Archaeology 
Congress now in session at Southamp- 
ton University, and today more than 
1.000 delegates from throughout the 
world will be taken in a fleet of double- 
deck, bases to visit the site. 

Digging wiD finish at the end of this 
month but Lord Montagu, «•!»•» » man of 
English Heritage, who visited the site 
yesterday, announced it would remain 
open to public inspection until Novem- 
ber, when h will be filled in ami grassed 

Mr Niail Sharpies, the excavation 
director, said yesterday: “The boose 
remains we have uncovered are the best 
of their type in Britain. We are 
gathering a great dp*l of evidence of a 
powerful and sophisticated tribal 

Carbonized grain and crop remains 
illustrate a rich economy, while 
brooches, combs and wine jars imported 
from Spain and France indicate the 
growing sophistication and wealth of the 
tribal rulers. Maiden Castle appears to 
have been a prosperous and well- 
defended town which extracted tribute 
from the surrounding Wessex farmlands 
and had far-reading trade contacts. 

Rut the Celtic sUngstones were no 
match for Vespasian’s flft Legion 
which stormed the castle in AD 43. 

Although the excavations are to be 
filled in. the discoveries win be illus- 
trated and reconstructed in a visitors 

centre to be built a mile from the hilltop, 

as soon as English Heritage can agree a 
site with the local authority. 

Cattle which grazed the ancient 
earthworks have bees removed, and in 
their place will shortly come English 
Heritage’s own Hock of IS sheep to keep 
the grass down under the eye of a part- 
time woman shepherd.

By David Smith, Economics Correspondent 

Another round of inter- 
national interest rale cuts, led 
by the West German Bundes- 
bank, became less, likely yes- 
terday with the publication of 
official figures suggesting a 
pick-up in economic growth. 

Figures., released in both 
Bonn and Washington point- 
ed to improved economic 
performance in the second 
half of the year. As a result, the 
pressure for further cuts in 
interest rates, may-ease. 

The keenly; awaited West 
German industrial production 
figures for July support claims 
by both the Bundesbank and 
the Bonn government- that 
growth - in the economy was 
coming through .without the 
stimulus of lower interest 

Industrial production rose 
1.4 per cent in July, 
following a - revised 3.5 per 
cent increase in June, the 
Economics Ministry said in 
Bonn. The freak June rise, 
originally pur at 2.7 per cent, 
was affected by changes in the 
timing of holidays, officials 

But, taking June and July 

.-together, production was up 
.by 2-5 percent c ompar ed with 
. the previous- two months: 
Compared with a year earlier, 
June-July output was up by 
23 -per-cent and inami&c- 
taring alonc was 3 per cent 
higher than in the correspond- 
ing period of 1985. 

At last-week's council meet- 
ing, the Bundesbank refused 
to change its . credit policies, 
despite jjressure 

Traditionally interest-rate 
sensitive areas of the economy 
appear tote recovering 
briskly, even without further 
reductions in rales. Construc- 
tion ' output, seasonally ad- 
justed^ rose by 6 per cent in 
July and, taking June and July 
together, was 5l5 per cent up 
on the ApriVMay period. 

' • In the United Stales, un- 
expectedly strong data for 
factory orders and comruction 
spending cast doubts on the 
widespread market belief that 
the Federal Reserve win be 
forced by the stagnant econ- 
omy into dining its discount 
rate again this month. 

Orders for manufactured 
goods rose by 2 2 per cent, or 

S4.2 billion, 'in July, after a 
revised fill of (12. per cent in 
June. The last time .orders 
increased by more than 22 per 
cent was in November 1984, 
although the increase an- 
nounced. yesterday was 
matched m December last 

■- [Durable goods orders rose 
by 4.1 per cent in July. Orders 
for defence capital goods rose 
by S3u2 billion, or 44.7 per 

As in West Germany, 
construction appears to be 
recovering strongly in the 
United States. In July there 
was a $1.9 billion, or 0.5 per 
cent rise in construction 
spending, compared with a 0.1 
per cent June increase. 

The next important figures 
due in the United States, apart 
from the weekly money sup- 
ply numbers tomorrow eve- 
ning, are the unemployment 
statistics, due on Fridav. 

Interest rates in the London 
money markets hardened yes- 
terday. with few traders now 
holding out much hope of ah 
early base rate reduction. 
Rates rose by T w or ft points. 

Ex-Singer business 
for market at £49m 

By Cliff Fekham 

A group of investors who 
paid £1 1 million last year for 
the European arm of the 
Singer sewing machine busi- 
ness is to. float it on die 
London stock market with a 
price tag of £49 milhoiL 
The renamed European 
Home Products is forecasting 
pretax profits for the current 
year of £4.4 - million after . 
chalking UP substantial losses 
for several- years imder its 
previous Owners, mainly be- 
cause of the heavy .costs of 
rationalization, i . 

EHi* takes in^uw 
and distribution businesses of 
Singer : in 12 Western Euro- 
pean and Scandinavian coun- 
tries. It has 360 shops and 
more than 1,700 exclusive 

Many of the shops, particu- 
larly in Italy and Portugal, sell 
a wide range of household 
electrical appliances, 

Britain, despite opce being 
an important manufacturing 
base for Singer, accounts for 
just 10 per cent of the 

.The chairman, Mr Enrique 
Gitles, says that whereas shop- 
pens used to. buy sewing 
machines to save money they 
now look upon purchases as 
leisure products. 

He points out that EHP has 
managed to hum the business 
round by expanding the num- 
ber of shops and introducing 
the range of consumer.goods. 
which include cookers, wash- 
ing machines dish washers 
ana TV'and video equipment, 
and name, fashionable sewing 
and knitting products. . 

The flotation is via an offer 

- for sale of 10.75 million shares

proceeds will go to Investors,

Volkswagen shares 
rise on issue terms 

Frankfurt (Reuter) — Volks- 
wagen AG shares and West 
German stocks in general are 
expected to make further gains 
from the terms of the DM300 
miHion- nominal preference 
share issue by the carmaker, 
dealers and analysts here 

The issue will raise DM2.1 

VW shares continued to 
perform strongly yesterday, 
opening at around DM540 
and climbing to DM554.8. But 
profit-taking pushed the price 
down, and the shares closed at 
DM544. The shares had risen 
by more than 14 marks before 
the issue terms were made 
public, and continued to rise 
in after hours trading follow- 
ing the announcement 

Analysts said that the rel- 
atively low issue price' of 
DM350 per nominal DM50 
preference share and the fact,' 
that the- new stock would pay 
foil dividend on 1986 results 
made the one-for-four rights 
issue an attractive offer.. 

The issueis a record onefor 
West Germany. .

Wico not 
up for sale 
says Exco 

By Alexandra Jackson 

Mr -William Matthews, 
managing director of Exco 
International, the financial 
services group, yesterday de- 
nied there was any strength in 
the rumours that Wico, its Far 
Eastern stockbroking busi- 
ness. was up for sale. 

Mr Matthews, also said he 
believed morale at Wico to be 

yesterday’s interim results 
from Exco included an excep- 
tional provision of £9.1 run- 
lion, arismg from settlements 
Wico had to make ©n behalf of 
-a Japanese dienL . 

: Group pretax profits in the 
first half of 1986 fell from 
£49.4 million to £33.8 million, ’ 
pn turnover down from 
£128.9 . million to , £73.4 

Before taking account of 
exceptional items, lower prof- 
its and turnover reflected the 
sale of Exco’s 52 per cent 
holding in Telerate, the finan- 
cial information service busi- 
ness, in August 1985. Eamings 
per share rose from 7.3p to 
7.7p and the dividend was 
increased by 50 per cent to 
2.4p. - 

Profits from money broking 
in the period grew from £12J 
million to £15.1 million. This 
was. encouraging considering 
the competitive market con- 
ditions. Forfaiting profits in-

Alan Sagan market will never be the same again 

Personal computer 
coup for Amstrad 

By Teresa Poole 

Amstrad Consumer 

Electronics yesterday 

launched its new range of 
IBM-compatible personal 
computers* and priced the 
basic model at just £399 plus 

Mr Alan Sugar, the chair- 
man of Amstrad, said he had 
managed to achieve the low 
price through teamwork and 
by not 'undertaking research 
for research’s sake. 

He gave a warning that the 
personal computer market 
would never be the same again 
and added: “We have rather 
maximized potential by using 
existing technology.” 

The PC 1 51 2 will be able to 
rim the vast existing range of 
software developed for the 
“IBM PC but costs less .than 
half the price of an equivalent 
IBM machine. The package 
includes a monitor, keyboard, 
processor, mouse and soft- 
ware, but not the printer. 

Mr Sugar said: “I see it as a 
genuine home computer 
where father can bring work 
home from the office on a 

floppy disc, put it in his 
machine and work on it on his 
own desk, 

'“At the same time, 'Sunny 
Jim' can use it to play Space 
Invaders if he wants.” 

There are four models in the 
range, with a top price of £949 
plus VAT 

The PCI 512, which is made 
and assembled in the Far East 
has a main memory of S12k 
which can be expanded by a 
further 1281c 

Amstrad's PCW series, 
launched last year, offers a 
complete, (non IBM-compat- 
ible) system for around £450. 
By March this year more than 
a million Amstrad branded 
computers had been sold and 
Amstrad's profits in the first 
half of the current financial 
year jumped from £9.5 million 
to £27.5 million. 

• The first Sinclair ma- 
chine to be launched since the 
takeover in April by Amstrad 
will be unveiled today. The 
Sinclair .Spectrum 128K+2 
will cost £149 including VAT 

Guinness repayment 

Two weeks after Guinness 
confronts shareholders to seek 
approval for its controversial 
boardroom changes more spe- 
cial meetings are being called 
— but these should be a lot less 
stormy. • 

The company yesterday an- 
nounced plans to. repay just 
over £86 million of outstand- 
ing loan stock which it inher- 

ited with its takeovers' of 
Bell’s, the Scotch whisky 
group, and Distillers. 

Guinness says the sums 
involved are too small and 
insignificant for such a large 
international group and it will 
be asking loan stock holders at 
special meetings on Septem- 
ber 26 to approve repayment 

Weak sterling 
pulls reserves 
down by £95m 

By Our Economics Correspondent 

Britain's gold and foreign 
currency reserves feH by an 
underlying $141 million (£95 
million) last month, as the 
pound weakened against the 
European currencies. 

This followed a small de- 
cline of$4 million in July. For 
most of this year, the Bank of 
England has been recouping 
the reserves used up in last 
year's successful attempt with 
the other Group of Five 
countries, to drive the dollar 

The reserves total stood at 
518.924 million <£12.722 mil- 
lion) at the end of last month, 
compared with $19,083 mil- 
lion (£12.790 million) at the 
end of July. 

The actual fan. of $159 
million, converted to an 
underlying fall of $141 million 
after allowance of accruals and 
repayments of borrowing un- 
der the exchange cover 
scheme. Accruals amounted 
to $7 million during the 
month, and repayments to $23 

The drop in reserves, while 
larger than market analysts 
had expected does not suggest 
heavy intervention in the 
foreign exchange markets in 
support of the pound by the 
Bank of England. However, 
some dealers have detected 
modest intervention when the 
pound has moved near to the 
DM3 level against the mark. 

The reserves have increased 
by a cumulative $1.1 billion 
during the first eight months 
of this year. 

The pound fell from 
DM3.12 to DM3.03 last 
month, and from Fr!0.I5 to 
Fr9.9. It held up against a 
weak dollar, slipping by just 
half a cent to $1.4875 between 
the end ofJuiy and the end of 

Yesterday, the pound was 
stead)’. The sterling index rose 
by 0.1 to 71. 1. The pound 
recovered from Monday’s low 
of DM3.0170 to close at 
DM3.02S5. and ended frac- 
tionally down against the dol- 
lar at $1.4895. 

Denial for 
vote claim 

By Richard Lander 

The Extel Group yesterday 
formally dented allegations by 
Henry Ansbacher, the mer- 
chant bank, that there had 
been discrepancies in two 
shareholders' votes which ap- 
proved the $40 million (£26 
million) purchase of Dealers’ 
Digest, an American publish- 
ing company. 

“In response to observations 
made yesterday by Henry 
Ansbacher & Go Ltd, the 
board of Extel has been as- 
sured by die joint scrutineers, 
Deloitte Haskins & Sells ami 
die Royal Bank of Scotland 
that the rates validly cast, by 
proxy and by those present, 
were as announced at the 
extraordinary general 
meeting,” the group said. 

However, Lord Spens, the 
managing director of Henry 
Ansbacher, said his appeal to 
other shareholders who had 
rated against the Dealers* 
Digest purchase had efidted a 
response frhm investors hold- 
?"l00,000 to 200,000 shares. 
On Monday, Ansbacher 
said it knew of shareholders 
who had cast 17.52 million 
shares against the resolutions, 
mpared with the 17.34 mil- 
lion announced at the meeting. 
The bank hacked the Mirror 
Group Newspapers publisher, 
Mr Robert Maxwell, in his 
attempt to block the deaL 
Despite yesterday's re- 
sponse, it seems unlikely that 
Ansbacher will bear from 
enough shareholders to claim 
that die resolutions, passed by 
just 900,000 votes, should 
have gone the other way. 

Gold and 
hit highs 

By Our City Staff 

The international bullion 
markets continued their 
strong advance yesterday. At 
one stage, platinum touched a 
six-year nigh of $658 an 

Gold came close to going 
through the $400 an ounce 
level for the first time since 
early 1984. 

However, both metals 
ended the day below their 
highs and some traders gave a 
warning thaithere could soon 
be a downward reaction. 

“The market seems to have 
risen too far, too fast,” said 
one dealer. 

Platinum has steadily in- 
creased its premium over gold 
in the last few weeks. The 
metal rushed up from $638 
yesterday morning, to be fixed 
at $658 before running into 
strong trade selling. Japanese 
jewellers, who are cutting 
down on their use of the 
metal, were thought to be the 
source of the selling. 

By the end of the day 
platinum was quoted at 

Gold touched a high of $397 
during the day before specu- 
lators started selling, dis- 
appointed that the $400 level 
coukl not be breached. 

Other sales were noted by 
the Soviet Union and some 
South African mines, which 
are believed to be covering 
production for the early part 

Gold ended around $1.60 
higher on balance at $393.35.

Rolls-Royce to collaborate 
in building fighter engine 

By Edward Townsend, Industrial Correspondent 

A new four-nation com- 
pany, Eurojet Engines, includ- 
ing Britain’s state-owned 
RolterRoyce. has been formed 
to produce. a £5 billion high- 
technology engine for the next 
European lighter aircraft . - 

Under the arrangement 
which marks' a significant, 
extention of European aero- 
space collaboration, Rolls- 
Royce and Motoren-imd- 
Turbtnen-Union of-West Ger- 
many will each bavea third of 
the work on. the engine, with 
. Fiat Aviarione of. Italy taking 
21 per cent and SENER of 
Spain 13 percent. 

The Rolls-Royce work will 
support thousands of jobs at 
the company’s Bristol factory 
weUjnto the next century. 

The: . partners already 
collaborate in the jointly 
owned Turbo-Union Com- 
pany to produce the RBI 99, 
the engine fitted to the Ttfp- 
'nado mufti-role combat air- 
craft. But Rolls-Royce said 
that Eurpjet - Engines look 
collaboration a step further, 
with the partners having joint 
participation on manufacture 
of the major engine modules. 

The new engine, to be called 
the EJ20Q. wiD power tbe 
fighter which is being devel- 
oped by the four countries as 
one of the replacements for 
existing Phantqms and Jag- 
uars. It is due to fly in 1995. 

Rolls-Royce will' be resp- 

onsible for' producing the 
combustion systenu.the 

pressure # 
intermediate casing and is 
participating in tbe low pres- 
sure and high pressure 
compressors, the low pressure 
turbine, the re-heat system, 
-and the convergent-divergent 
nossje. _ .. 

- The companies wfll produce 
engines fra the 800 aircraft 
needed by the air forces of the 
four participating countries. 
Eurojet said -that, with addi- 
tional export opportunities, 
more than .2,000 engines 
would be required

Tombs,! chairman of Rolls- 
Royce: yesterday strongly de- 
nied that political interference 
had resulted in his company

to buy Rolls-Royce engines.”

was the case. Commercial and 
economic reasons were para-

spring, won the BA order in 
the fee of fierce competition 
from General Electric of the

Mexican austerity 
measures ‘to stay’ 

Mexico City {NY Times 
News Service) — President 
Miguel de la Madrid said in 
his annua] slate of the nation 
address that the economic 
austerity that has marked the 
people's' lives for the last four 
years must become a perma- 
nent feature. 

He said that, during his 
administration's remaining 
two years, he planned no 
dramatic changes to address 
Mexico's worsening economic 
crisis but would focus on 
stimulating economic growth. 

The President pledged that 
Mexico would continue to 
avoid confrontations with 
international lending agencies 
and foreign bankers over its 
debt payments. 

Mexico owes more than 
$100 billion (£67.5 billion) to 
foreign banks and inter- 
national agencies. 

“In the next two years, we 
shall continue to be temperate 
in our habits, but we shall not 
be pessimistic _ in our 
attitudes.** he said in the 
nationally televised address to 
Mexico’s’ Congress. “Our 
austerity effort is permanent, 
but it now has a positive 
perspective of encouragement 
and growth.” 

Since Mexico’s economic 
crisis developed in mid- 1982, 
four months before President 
de la Madrid began his six- 
year term, Mexicans have 
coped with inflation that often 
reached 100 per cent and a 
steady reduction in real wages. 

Further cuts in government 
spending and losses of oil 
revenues have plunged Mex- 
ico into a severe recession this 
year when the economy has 
shrunk by 3 to 4 percent of the 
gross domestic product 

President de la Madrid's 
administration has been un- 

der pressure from left-wing 
political parties to follow the 
lead of Peru's President Gar- 
cia, who has placed a limit on 
Peru’s foreign debt payments 
and restricted the earnings 
that foreign companies can 
take out of the country. . 

The President has been 
cautiously prodding inter- 
national lending agencies to 
make concessions to Mexico. 

He has argued — and he 
repeated the arguments in his 
address on Monday — that 
without concessions from for- 
eign bankers on interest rates, 
loan repayment terms and 
economic ’ performance tar- 
gets. Mexico would be unable 
to reverse the current reces- 
sion and return to an expand- 
ing economy. 

“We have taken and will 
continue to take a non- 
confromauonal approach, one 
that recognizes joint 
responsibility for the genera- 
tion of Lhc debt problem, he 

His non-con frontational ap- 
proach seemed 19 bear fruit in 
July, when Mexico reached a 
new aid agreement with the 
International Monetary Fund 
that Lies the amount of new 
loans to fluctuations in crude 
oil prices. With the IMF 
agreement in hand, Mexico is 
now negotiating $ 2 . 5 billion in 
new loans from foreign bank- 
ers for this year and an even 
larger amount for 1 987. 

Foreign bankers, however, 
are increasingly wary' of lend- 
ing Mexico new money, since 
much of it will be used to pay 
interest on the existing debt. 

The President's address was 
boycotted by 41 members of 
the Chamber of Deputies.

The gloom that has emerged 
in recent economic forecasts is 
not yet universal. Even so, the 

picture is hardlyjhte to faring 

comfort to the Chancellor 
the Exchequer. 

Most forecasters expect 
stronger growth in the econ- 
omy next year, after the pause 
in growth daring the present 
year. The Midland Bank and 
the London Business School 
are looking for an acceleration 
in growth to more than 3 per 
cenu although the consensus 

iir»r in 1 5 

is nearer to 2.5 per cent. 

■The National Institute, 
castigated for the excessive 
gloom contained in its August 
forecast, does not expect any 
slowdown in growth next year. 
Rather, the prediction is for 
growth 10 be maintained at 
this - year’s sluggish pace, es- 
timated by the Institute to be 
I.S percent. 

The gloomy spot, as for as 
the growth forecasts are con- 
cerned. is occupied by the

IMI pic, F.O. Box 21&, Birmingham B6 ZBIL 


stockbroking firm of James 
Capei, which has growth slow- 
ing from 2 to 1.5 per cent. 

Mr Keith Skeoch, chief 
economist at James Capei. 
pointed out yesterday that 
much of the gloom arises from 
declining oil output, which 
acts as a drag on overall 

Growl h in non-oil gross 
doe ms Lie product is put at 2 
per cent next year, compared 
with 2.3 per cent this year. But 
a fall in North Sea oil produc- 
tion, of as much as 1 5 per cent 
reins bade the overall GDP 
increase to 1.5 per cent. 

For the rest, the forecasters . 

eralJyJsee conwmiCTspen^ng 
as providing the main im- 
petus. Average earnings are 
expected to grow far faster 
than prices, almost indefi- 
nitely, and this together with 
pre-election tax cuts can be 
expected to produce 4 per cent 
real consumer spending 
growth next year. 

It is, however, possible to 
have strong growth in con- 
sumer spending — the Na- 
tional Institute is looking for 

3.5 per cent growth next year, 
and James Capei 3. 

ipel 3.4 per cent 
— without buoyant overall 
growth in the economy. 

Consumer spending, if it 
merely drags in larger quanti- 
ties of imports, does nothing 
for growth in Britain. Just as 
negative “net exports" have 
choked off growth in the 
United States, so a similar 
thing could be about to hap- 
pen in Britain. 

The National Institute leads 
the pack on die balance of 

S yraents. Its forecast of a 
.8 billion deficit in 1987 is 
well above the others. The 
Midland Bank's £2 billion 
surplus next year, stands out 
like a merrymaker at a funeral 

jnents and an- ejection ahead, ^ 
sterling will run into diffi- 
culties. Most forecasters 
anticipate that an uneasy 
combination of high interest 
rates and an intermittently 
falling pound will govern 
financial policy over the next 
18 months or so. 

The crunch numbers, as far 
as the Government is con- 
cerned, are for unemployment 
and inflation. There will not 
be a massive fall in unemploy- 
ment before the end of next 
year, unless everyone has 
missed something. 

Rather, the distinction is 
between those who see un- 
employment heading ever up- 
wards ‘from its current -high 
level, and those who see some 
possibility of a small decline. 

To prove that the old 
relationships between growth 
an unemployment are not 
what they were, the National 
Institute, while, at the gloomy 
end of the growth range, has 
unemployment falling with 
the impact of the 
Government's special 
employment and training 
measures. The London Busi- 
ness School, with one of the 
strongest growth forecasts 
next year, has the jobless total 

On unemployment the 
Government looks to be in a 
no win situation. A substantial 
fall is not on the cards, and a 
small fell will be attributed by 
opposition spokesman to 
changes in the method of 

The picture is slightly rosier 
on inflation, although the trick 
achieved by Mrs Thatcher in 
1983, of going to the country 
at the low point of the 
inflation cycle, will be hard to 

The general view is that the 
July inflation rate, of 2.4 per 
cent, is at or near the low

The consensus forecast, of a 
£2-3 billion deficit next year, 
has a depressing air of plau- 
sibility about it given the 
likely halving of the trade 
surplus on oil, and the trend of 
the manufacturing deficit 

There is too, after the 
experience of the past three 
years, an inevitability about 
the expectation that with a 
deteriorating balance of pay-

the inflation rate. Next year it

Exco shares poised 
for bid boost 

Barring a takeover bid. Exco 

shareholders are enjoying a 

less exciting ride for their 
money these days. Some will 
breathe a sigh of relief while 
others may suspect the group 
is lacking impetus and 

The days of frenetic cor- 
porate activity are over. Exco 
is well balanced how, both 
geographically and by disci- 
pline, with £330 million in 
ihe bank. It is keen to move 
back into fund management 
and to increase the amount of 
capital in existing businesses. 
Otherwise it is on the lookout 
for a “mega-dear* to absorb 
its cash. - 

Last spring's abortive talks 
with Morgan Grenfell, 
blocked ' by the Bank of 
England, would have given 
rise to an operation capital- 
ized at around £1 billion — 
just the type of deal Exco 
would like to come up with. 

However, opportunities 
are few and far between. It 
would be foolish to expect 
Exco to have a time limit but 
investors could become 

Confidence at Wico, the 
Far Eastern stockbroker, has 
been bhdly hit, The default of 
a client who had been dealing 
in shares in Nankai Electric 
Railway, the Japanese com- 
pany, necessitated an excep- 
tional loss provision of £9 
million. : ' 

Wico was not alone in 
suffering losses as a result of 
this episode, but the experi- 
ence has been galling. Con- 
trary to rumours, Wico is 
apparently not up for sale. 
There are plans to spend 
more money on stockbroking 
in the second half of the year 
and Wico should do well but 
it cannot afford to lose any 
more good people. 

Money broking profits held 
up despite the damaging ef- 
fect freely negotiated 
commissions had on the Lon- 
don market once they became 
the norm this year. Stock 
lending and inter-dealer 
broking should contribute in 
the second half, while forf it- 
ing continues to perform 
well. The growing inter- 
nationalization of the multi- 
discipline markets in which 
Exco operates should under- 
pin profits from these activ- 
ities in the longer term. 

Last month ft _ was an- 
nounced that first City 
Financial Corporation, jht 
holding company for the 
Betzbeig family, the well- 
known Canadian arbitragers, 
had a 6.25 per cent stake in 
Exco. Rumours yesterday 
suggested they were still ac- 
tive, and while their motives 
are. unclear, suffice it to say 
the Belzbergs are not known 
for their long view. 

Tan Sri Khoo Teck Puat, 
the Malaysian entrepreneur, 
holds just under 29 per cent 
of Exco. He cannot raise bis 
stake without the board's 
approval nor can he sell his 

shares unless a bid for Exco is 
made or a third party owns 
more than 10 per cent. He 
must be watching the events 

in Canada with interesL 

Exco should make £78 
million in the full year. This 
gives earnings per share 01 
ISp and puts the shares on a 
p/e ratio of 12.5 limes. Only 
takeover speculation will 
push the shares higher at the 


shares, up 5p at I73p. on a 
p/e of less than 1 1. With net 
debt at around a fifth of 
shareholders' funds, further 
acquisitions are planned. 
Flattening economy or other- 
wise. the shares look well 
supported by next year’s 


Mr Gary Allen, IMl’s manag- 
ing director, is anxious to 
distance himself from the 
current pessimism about the 
British economy. Demand tn 
some general engineering sec- 
tors is flattening but this is 
not the same as a downturn, 
he insists. And anyway, many 
ofIMl*s businesses operate in 
the sort of niche engineering 
areas which should prove 
more resilient. 

But how far does the 35 per 
cent improvement in pretax 
profits to £30.5 million in the 
current first half bear out this 

Interest charges dropped 
by more than £3 million, due 
to translation factors and the 
inflow of cadi from disposals, 
so the improvement in trad- 

Brammer shareholders who 
have been gnashing their 
teeth since turning down 
Bunzl's cash offer of 420p a 
share last year have probably 
ground them to a powder by 


Yesterday the shares 
dropped lOp to 283p. having 
touched a year’s low of 273p 
at one stage, as the industrial 
services group came in with 
pretax interim profits of £ 6.1 
million, only 7 per cent up on 
last year and some way below 
market expectations. The 
new paper issued to pay for 
Energy Services & Electronics 
(ESE), the electronic equip- 
ment rental group, meant 
that earnings per share fell 
fh>m 1 i.4p to 9.2p. 

After a disappointing first 
six months in the Brammer 
group. ESE appears to be 
working well now, contribut- 
ing about £2.3 million in the 



With the help of £1.7 
million from Martonair, in- 
cluded from the middle of 
April, fluid power has over- 
taken Drinks Dispense as the 
largest contributor to profits. 
But Martonair's results have 
not so far improved on Iasi 
year's, and integration costs 
— which will be dealt with 
through the balance sheet 
rather than through profit 
and loss — are likely to run 
into several millions with 
closures in Britain. Germany 
and Canada. The benefit to 
profits will not be seen before 
next year. 

At Drinks Dispense, IMI 
remains one of the casualties 
of ihe US Cola war with the 
uncertainty in the markets 
delaying. expenditure on new 
equipment In local cur- 
rencies there was an improve- 
ment but, overall, the 
division slipped by £ 0.2 mil- 
lion to £ 6.8 million. 

However, the best perfor- 
mance came from the build- 
ing products division where 
pretax profits jumped from 
- £1.5 million to £4 J million in 
a market made more buoyant 
by the merger of two of IMF's 
competitors. Titanium also 
continued * td perform 
strongly, reflecting Rolls- 
Royce’s- current successes, 
and. is. expected to bring in 
strong second-half results. A 
50 per cent improvement in 
metals to £ 6.1 million was 
achieved despite problems in 
copper refining which suf- 
fered from lower metal prices 
and the sharp drop in the 
value of tin. 

Profits of £73 million for 
the full year would put the 

It is expanding rapidly in 
Europe and Brammer man- 
agement is confident of reap- 
ing returns from Italy. 
Denmark and Switzerland 
over the next year. 

The bearing service group, 
the traditional core of the 
company, also performed 
strongly as Brammer ex- 
panded its range into areas 
such as transmission prod- 
ucts. Alas. Brammer is brac- 
ing itself for a flatter second 
half as it runs into the 
slowdown which appears to 
be gripping British industry. 

There is liulc joy from the 
rest of the company. In 
precision engineering, profits 
fell by about £ 200.000 after a 
slow start, although a better 
second half should even 
things out over the year. 

But Brammer is less 
optimistic about its two other 
divisions, which just about 
broke even in the first half 
after making about £900,000 
in the same period last year. 
Master Pumps and Lion Oil 
supply the oil exploration 
industry which is down in the 
dumps for obvious reasons, 
while Unitel, a distributor of 
electronic components, op- 
erates in an industry where 
faces are almost as long 

Pretax profits for the whole 
year now look likely to be 
nearer £14 million than the 
£16 million which analysis 
had pencilled in earlier. 

That equates to earnings 
per share of around 2 1 p and a 
prospective p/e of 13. Not 
cheap to buy into, but any 
bidder who looks again might 
find the shareholders rather 
less loyal to their company 
-than last time. 

Bestobell tells 
bid rebels to 
sell off shares 

Bestobell is advising 
shareholders to sell in the 
market or accept the offer by 
Meggitt Holdings, a fellow 
engineering company. 

In a statement issued yes- 
terday. Besipbell said; “Al- 
though the board of Bestobell 
have considered Meggitt's of- 
fer not to be in the best 
interests of Besiobetl's 
shareholders, employees and 
customers, and accordingly 
have vigorously resisted it, 
they believe that, given the 
level of acceptances to date, it 
is no longer in the best 
interests of holders who have 
not accepted the offer to 
continue in a minority 

“The options available to 
such holders are either to sell 
their Bestobell shares in the 
market or to accept the 
Meggitt offer." 

Meggitt is offering 532p a 
share for Bestobell valuing 
the company at £86 million. 

It announced on Thursday 
that it had received accep- 
tances for 53.8 per cent of 

The Meggitt offer is now 

Rowntree issue 

Rowntree Mackintosh has 
received acceptances for 95.2 
per cent of the 42.57 million

43.87p over the issue price.

The interim dividends are payable on 3ist October 1986 to shs _

P rospect * The results of the Swire Pacific Group for the Eecond half of 1966 are expected to show a stanfflemt increase over those of 
the equivaieflt period in 1965 and over the first half-year results, and the property division, in particular, should record orefits at

steel anger 
at ‘British 
solution 9 

From Richard Bassett, 

■ Vienna 

Amid accusations from 
Opposition potititians that it 
was adopting a “cruel British 
solntioo," the Austrian gov- 
ernment yesterday announced 
its plans to reform the 
country's ailing nationalized 
steel company, Voest Alpine. 

The flagship of Andrian 
industry, Voest Alpine ran 
into troohle six months ago 
when it was discovered that 
millions of pounds had beat 
lost by its managing board's 
iU-ad vised speculation in Mid- 
dle East oiL The board re- 
signed or masse as the full 
extent of the losses became 

The then Austrian Chan- 
cellor, Dr Fred Smowatz, 
promised far-reaching re- 
forms, but his resignation after 
Dr Knit Waldheim's victory in 
presidential elections was fol- 
lowed by the appointment of 
Heir Franz Vranitsky as fi- 
nance minister. Herr 
Vranitsky, who is a banker 
rather than a career pofitidan, 
maawt to take more realistic 
but unpopular measures over 
the next few weeks. 

In particular, he plans to 
shed 9,000 jobs from the 
Styrian steel plants of Voest 
Alpine and inject more 
management expertise into the 
beleagnred firm. This has 
shocked many Austrians for 
whom the term compulsory 
redundancy is something they 
have never associated with 
their coimtry- 

Herr Vranitsky yesterday 
defended his plans and denied 
that they were nnfeefingor a 
“national tragedy." There 
would be a tremendous Ipfec- 
tion of capital into Voest over 
the next Jew years, be said. By 
the 1990s, it would be back on 
its feet 

currency loss 

CRA, the Australian mining 
company, wrote off Ans$l83.4 
million (£745 minion) in cur- 
rency exchange losses in the 
first half of this year, the 
company said yesterday, 
annonnciiig interim results far 
the six mouths to June 30. 

It reported a net profit of 
Aos$60.28 million before 
allowing for the exchange loss, 
compared with Ans$51.42 mil- 
lion a year earlier. This was 
despite a stighHall in turnover 
to Aus$232 billion from 
AS2J8 bilBon. 

The profit was transformed 
into an. overall loss of 
A ns$12S 56 million after 
extraordinary hems. The in- 
terim dividend is cat from 5 
cents to 3 cents. 



VW mega-rights tests 
privatization pothole 

Volkswagen has tested the strength of 
the West German stock market and 
found it firm. Its shares rose before the 
announcement of the terms of its 
record-breaking rights issue and rose 
again in post-bourse trading once the 
terms were known. VW dearly needed 
more capital but it was lucky to get 
away with so much. Two factors could 
have damaged the issue. 

One was its sheer size, outstripping 
the previous largest capital raising in 
Germany. The German market has 
had to absorb a great deal of new 
paper this year. Indigestion set in 
during the first quarter when a 
number of bank rights issues proved 
too much and the market's rise 
faltered. Since then, however, con- 
fidence has returned with a ven- 
geance. The Commerzbank index 
moved ahead by 265 points during 
August, almost to April's record high. 
The appetite was restored. 

This is symptomatic of the market's 
growing strength over the past decade, 
establishing it as the world's fourth 
largest after the UK. Since the trough 
of 1 972, share prices have risen more 
than 230 per cent, compared with a 
130 per cent rise in London, capitaliz- 
ing the German market at about half 
the size of London. Large issues like 
VWs are typicaL Less than 500 stocks 
are listed , compared with more than 
2,000 in London. 

The other potential threat to the 
VW issue was the overhanging prom- 
ise of privatization which will release 
the 40 per cent shareholding, split 

equally between the Federal govern- 
ment and the Stale of Lower Saxony, 
on to the market next year. The flood 
of paper that will cause has not 
damped enthusiasm for VW shares in 
Germany, but it is causing caution 
among British investors. So. too. is 
the style of the issue. Non-voting 
preference shares in a rights issue are 
rare in London, to say the least. The 
reason is simply that investors do not 
like them and evidently value their 
voting rights more highly than the 

The most bizarre aspect is that non- 
voting shares were chosen because 
they would not dilute the voting 
power of the majority shareholders. 
The state and federal governments are 
not exercising their rights, or will at 
least be placing their shares later. But 
their control of the company is 
undiminished — a strange way for 
authorities bent on privatisation to 
behave. The aim of the issue was to 
raise money, not to put the company 
into the hands of private investors. 

It confirms the impression that 
privatization has only a lukewarm 
following in Bonn. Left to themselves, 
the Free Democrats would probably 
pursue privatization with a will. But 
the three-party coalition government 
of which they are part has no such 
enthusiasm. No formal programme of 
asset sales has ever been announced in 
Germany and the VW issue should 
stand as a warning to the markets that 
the government's attitude to it is at 
best equivocal. 

5^ Tin war beyond words 

The Government is keeping its cards 
close to its chest in the race of a flurry 
of accusations and warnings from the 
group of 1 1 metal brokers threatening 
to sue it for the losses they sustained 
from the tin debacle. 

These losses are likely to be in the 
region of £160 million, although they 
could still soar to £400 million, plus 
interest and costs, if the legal chal- 
lenge to the London Meta] Exchange's 
ring out deal is successful. This fixed a 
tin price of £6,250 a ton for the 
outstanding contracts — for above the 
current trading .level of less than 

The 1 1 brokers, who formed Tinco 
Realisations are petitioning to wind 
up the International Tin Council as a 
first step -towards fixing liablility on 
one, some, or all of the 22 member 
countries who were signatories to the 
ill-fated . sixth International Tin 

Tinco has been advised by some of 
the most eminent banisters in the 
land that the member countries are 
jointly and severally liable for the 
ITCs debts. This could be a useful 
weapon since, if correct, it means that 

any member can be sued for the debts 
of all. 

That member or group would then 
have the unenviable task of trying to 
recover from all the other member 
countries their share of the liability. 

This argument could, however, 
dampen the possibility of a negotiated 
settlement with individual countries. 
The British Government, for exam- 
ple, is liable on the basis of its 
contribution to the ITC for only 4 per 
cent of the total debts and at the time 
of the rescue plan for the market it was 
prepared to pay its share. 

The failure of the rescue plan 
coupled with the actual and threat- 
ened legal action against the Govern- 
ment have obliged it to deny liability 
without giving reasons, because, for 
tactical reasons, it does not want to 
reveal its hand. If Tinco goes ahead 
with the winding up petition then 
Britain will discuss tactics with the 21 
other member countries. 

For Tinco the time for talking must 
be over. Its high profile and ex- 
cellently-presented campaign has 
foiled to produce the settlement it was 
aimed at- Let battle commence.

threatens compact 
discs with death blow 

By Amanda Gee Smyth 
. The Japanese electronics 
industry is set to plunge the 
audio market' into " another 
revolutionary phase that 
threatens to kill- off the com- 1 
pact disc market before* 
development costs have been 

The newcomer is the digital

liule distortion. 

. .Dais will be a serious threat 
to the compact disc market, 
which- has only-just taken off 
Many in. the industry think 
that il -will: also make the 
conventional audio cassette 
obsolete. _ . 

Deliveries of compact disc 
equipment to. trade outlets 
rose to 147,000 units year 
compared with J7.000 in 1983. 
The total is expected to reach 
half a million this year. 

. But if . the big Japanese 
groups such as Matsushita and 
Sony begin marketing data the 
compact disc market may die 
before it has .recouped 
development costs. 

Opposition to dais, how-

industry, which wants lauda- 
tion requiring all dal machines 
to carry an ami-copying de- 
vice called a spoiler so that dat 
cannot pirate copyright 

The music industry, in a 
paper to - the European 
Commission, gives a warning 
that “if dat is allowed to arrive 
on the market in an untimely 
and disorderly appearance, it 
might be the final blow to the 
recording industry.” 

It could also be a devastat- 

- ing blow to the. recording and 
music royalties business. Sales 
of electronic borne entertain- 
ment products have dropped 
by £500.000 in the past two 

The EEC commissioners 
have promised to talk to the 
Japanese ministry of inter- 
. national trade and industry 
but, if the talks fail, the music 
lobby is likely to ‘demand 
actions which may include 
■ calls for tariffs or import bans. 

' The industry is “currently 
ploughing a furrow between 
two crests of product 
development," according to a 
survey by Euromonitor. 

Home computer and video 
sales have levelled off while 
the development of products 
which link with each other will 
not reach the market before 
the 1990s. 

The sectors most likely to 
grow are television sets, video 
cameras and in-car entertain- 
ment The home computer 
market appears to be at satura-

Hampton to build nursing homes 

By Judith Huntley 

Hampton Trust the prop- 
erty company, has set up two 
subsidiaries — Hampton 
Health Care and Hampton 
Retirement Homes. 

The decision to move into 
this sector of the market 

initially in the south-east was 
based on the strong growth 
prospects il offers. The com- 
pany sees h as a potential third 
profit centre along with prop- 
erty development and gold 

Hampton Health Care has 
bought the freehold of Hunt- 

ers Lodge at Redhill, Surrey, 
an affluent area in the south- 
east The lodge will be con- 
verted into a 30-bed nursing 
home for £1 million. There are 
plans for a 44-bed nursing and

By Our City Staff 

The Phoenix Timber Group 
proposes to raise £52 million 
through the issue of 7.26 
million new 75p shares. 

Morgan Grenfell will place 
up to £88 million shares with 
institutional investors. The 
directors will subscribe to a 
further 381,667 shares. 

Phoenix announced the is- 
sue while reporting that 
operating profit was almost 
halved in the year to March 
31, from £1.86 million to 
£966,000. After allowing for 
interest paid, the loss before 
tax was £973,000. compared 
with £81,000 last time. 

There was also an extraor- 
dinary debit of £688JW0, mak- 
ing an attributable loss of 
£1.66 milli on, almost double 
the previous attributable loss 
of £834,000. 

Shareholders win be al- 
lowed to subscribe to 50 per 
cent of the shares being 
placed because the new shares 
will represent 71 per cent of 
enlarged ordinary capital. 
Applications received in the 
proportion of eight new shares 
for every seven held will be 
met in fall. 

Applications may, however, 
be made for additional shares 
subject to a maximum of 17 
shares for every seven held, 
depending on how many ex- 
cess shares are available. 

The group's capital base has 
dined considerably over the 
past six years. In that period, 
shareholders’ funds have 
fallen by £6.8 million from 
£9.9 million on March 31, 
1980, to £3.1 utOIion this year. 

The group's level of in- 
debtedness is now two-and-a- 
half times shareholders’

From Our Correspondent 
Hong Kong 

There is much embarrass 
mcnl at Hong Kong's top club, 
where members have mis- 
managed finances to such an 
extent that the club is expected 
to run at a loss until 1990. 

The members of the Hong 
Kong Club, the elite of the 
crown colony's business life, 
arc in charge of the govern- 
ment. industry, and financial 
institutions, handling billions 
of dollars of other people’s 

They are still trying to work 
oui where they wenl wrong, 
after entering into adeal with 
Hongkong Land which prom- 
ised to pay for the redevelop- 
ment of ihe club in Statue 
Square and pay it 20 per cent 
of the rental of the 16 lloons of 
offices it built above. 

In return Hongkong Land 
received a 25-year lease on the 
premium office space with the 
whole building becoming the 
properly of the club when the 
25 \ears are up. 

The dub was to receive 
HKS15 million a year, but 
Hongkong Land has managed 
to get only half the HKS42 per 
sq ft it had expected and now 
the club is receiving only 
HKS6 million a year. 

Meanwhile costs have risen 
dramatically as the club has a 
staff of 238. costing HK$I3 
million a year and a manage- 
ment fee linked to turnover. 

The club has now decided to 
combine its HKS26 million 
investment fund — carefully 
nurtured from HKS4 million 
25 years ago - with its general 
fund, using income from divi- 
dends and interest, and profits 
from sales of investments to 
support its income. 


sults for the half year to June 30 
(figures m £000s) show turnover 
up at 11.431 (11,076), pretax 
profit at 201 (1.13) and earnings 
per share at 14.4p (9.0p).

A good port in a storm: the new development erf Craobh Haven in the west Highlands of Scotland 

Sweet sailing for rugged spirits 

A strong sou'wesieriy was sweeping the 
Sound of Jura and its grey, weather-worn 
islands, setting up a stampede of white 
horses against the Argyll shore. Stanley 
Hampton, marina director at Craobh 
(pronounced Groove) Haven, stuck his 
chin out into the wind with relish. 

“Excellent,” he said. “You know, people 
actually enjoy having a gale between 
their teeth. 1 wouldn't call it a selling 
point but it certainly doesn't seem to put 
people off.” 

Admirers of the Scottish west coast 
and inner Hebridean islands might be 
dismayed at such an assessment by a 
developer. Perhaps the chief defence for 
this superb, unspoilt stretch of coastline 
against wholesale development over the 
years has been the weather, helped 
perhaps by the ubiquitous Scottish 
midge and the traditional difficulty of 
getting anything built in the west 

Several factors have changed all that . - - - ... . - .

some rough financial waters but was now 
reaching ihc stage where there was 
enough solid prospect and tangible 
achievement to attract equity funding. 

It is unlikely that Craobh Haven will 
ever be adopted as a town but will 
remain a private esiate. It has developed 
its own reservoir and water supply 
system and sewerage works for which 
there is a management charge. 

Plans are expanding and so far 90 
“units” have been sold, taking Craobh to 
the one-third mark of the revised 
scheme: The expectaiion is that in 10 
years’ time, when the last building is 
completed and the final touch of 
landscaping carried out Craobh Haven 
will have added 1.000 souls to zhe 
population of the west coast

By Christopher Warman 

Property Correspondent . 

Histone bouses all too often lose their 
original reason for existence, mainly 
because they are too large and too 
expensive for today's families. Any such 
house that is demolished is a loss to our 
heritage, and almost any way of saving it 
is the better alternative, whether the 
change is to a conference centre, com- 
pany headquarters, a nursing home, a 
school or offices. 

Perhaps the best way of preserving 
these houses, if they cannot be family 
homes any longer, is to convert them 
into hotels: This is certainly the view of 
Historic House Hotels, a company 
dedicated to the rescue and restoration of 
architecturally important houses, which 
has bought Hartwell House, near Ayles- 
bury, Buckinghamshire. This is the third 
Grade I listed property the company has 
bought to turn into one of the establish- 
ments reflecting its title. 

The first two are already in operation. 
Bodysgallen Hall, near Llandudno, north 
Wales, opened in 1982. Bodysgallen 
Hall, which overlooks Conwy Castle and 
looks towards Snowdonia, has 13th- 
century origins, was built mainly in the 
J 7th century and -had various later 
additions before its recent conversion. 
The hotel now has 19 bedrooms, with 
further cottage suites created from 
nearby farm buildings. 

Middlethorpe Hall, outside York, is 
the second of these hotels, members of 
the Prestige Holds consortium. It was 

m 1699 as the home of a wealthy 

\Yorkshire family, the Barlows of Leeds, 

' ho retained it until the early 19th 

5 y. Before Historic House Holds 
t it in 1980 it had fallen into 
leraUe disrepair and was last used 
as a tight club. Its transformation is now 
complete, an elegant country house 
again, Wnding in 26 acres of parkland 
near the'^Cnaveismire racecourse. 

HartweO, third in line, was mentioned 
in the Domesday Book and the estate is ~ 

believed to have been in the hands of 
William the Conqueror's son, William 
Ferverel, before rt passed into the 
ownership of King John and sub- 
sequently • the Hampden family and 
latterly their cousins, the Lees. The 
present bouse, dating from the 17th 
century and enlarged ra 1755, has both 
FHyahethan and classical Georgian fa- 
cades. With the bouse are two cottages, a 
large stable block and 15 acres of grounds 
landscaped by Capability Brown, dotted 
with statues of George II and his son 

Ti was last used as a girls’ finishing 
school and has been empty for some 
years but ft is still in a good stale of re- 
pair. Some of the original panelling, 
elaborate carvings and moulded ceilings 
remain. The house has an extraordinary 
staircase, with each of the banisters 
carved into a face, one of them replaced 
with that of Sir Winston ChurchilL 

The company intends to have at least 
30 bedrooms in the main house, with 10 

Conversion will cost 
more than £2 million 

more in the gatehouse cottages. Plans 
indude conference facilities in the 
converted stable Mock, and work is 
about to start on the grand project of 
bringing the historic house back into fife. 
The new owners, who bought the bouse 
through Jackson-Stops and Staffi are not 
disclosing the buying price, but in any 
case the cost of conversion is likely to ex- 
ceed iL They intend spending more than 
£2 million on the work. 

Historic House Hotels has bought a 
125-year lease from the Ernest Cook 
Trust, which — because of its interest in 
conservation — enthusiastically supports 
the company's plans for the restoration. 
The deal was struck after members of the 
trust saw the results of the restoration 
work carried out on the company’s first 
two acquisitions. 

The hotel is expected to emerge from 
its chrysalis in the spring of 1989, and the 
histone house will once more play host 
to its guests.

Lafng is hopeful 
of nostalgic 
victory with 
Meet the Greek 


In-form Haslam 
saddles a treble 

By Mandarin (Michael Phillips) 

No three individuals would 
. like to win the Be Hopeful 
' Memorial Handicap at Bath 
today more than Peter 
: Walwyn. Ray Laing and Alan 
' Bailey. .As trainer, head lad 
‘ and personal groom they were 
the three responsible for the 
1 career of that remarkable old 
: horse, whose memory this 
race honours. 

During 1 3 seasons Be Hope- 

-* ful won 27 races until, aged 14. 
1 he had to be put down on 
humane grounds after break- 
ing a leg on the gallops. The 
irony of that was that hitherto 
.. he had never been unsound in 
his life. 

For Bailey, his devoted lad, 
J who also looked after such 
good horses as Lunchtime and 
Rock Roi before he turned his 
■ hand to training, that tragic 

- day remains one of the worst 
in his life. 

As a trainer Bailey has tried 
1 to win this particular race 
most years, but so far without 
T success. In this instance he has 

a chance of realising an am- 
’ bition with Below Zero but 
; even he is the first to concecd 

- that, following those wins at 
Kempton, Salisbury and 
Hay dock. Below Zero may 
well have a bit too much on 
his plate, now carrying 8 sl 
1 21b. 1 tend to agree. 

Windsor Knot, somewhat 
unlucky when beaten 
threequarters of a length by 
Canadian Star at Windsor last 
month, is Waiwyn's hope of 

bringing the trophy home to 
Seven Barrows. 

But on this occasion I doubt 
whether even he will manage 
to beat Laing’s runner. Meet 
The Greek. Beaten only a 
short head by Foot Patrol at 
Brighton last time out Meet 
The Greek had previously 
finished second to Star Cutter 
at Goodwood. 

Not surprisingly, the 
connections of Ininsky, who 
finished third that day. only 
half a length behind Meet The 
Greek, has declined to take 
him on again on I lib worse 
terms now that their horse is 
penalised for his recent win at 

In going nap on Meet The 
Greek this afternoon, I am 
aware that he has little or 
nothing in hand of Portogon, 
judged on how they ran 
against each other in the 
Brighton Summer Cup earlier 
in the season. On that occa- 
sion they finished first and 
third with only a length be- 
tween them. 

Meet The Greek is preferred 
now because his record both 
before and since is so much 
more dependable. Also. 
Portogon. who is a habitual 
front runner, is unlikely to 
have everything his own way 
as there are two others of that 
ilk in the field. Bold Pillager 
and Joyful Dancer, and be- 
tween them they could cut one 
an others throats. 

No matter how he gets on 
with Below Zero. Bailey and 

Pat Haslam has his horses in 
lip-top form and the New- 
market trainer saddled three 
winners at Hamilton Park yes- 
terday with Easy Line, Hard As 
Iron and Troptco, ail ridden by 
Tyrone Williams. 

Easy Line comfortably jus- 
tified 3-i favouritism tn the 
Royal Scots Dragoon Guards 
Clip Handicap. The trainer has 
made a habit of winning this 
race, which he took three years 
running with Oyston Estates 
(twice) and Mon The Hoopie. 
“There was a break then and it's 
nice to come back here and 
capture the event again." 
Haslam said. 

Cooper Racing Nail cut out 
most of the running from the 

by two-and-a-half lengths front 
Bcechwood Cottage and Royal 

The EBF Hallealh Stakes was 
probably the most competitive 
two-year-old event run on tne 
Scottish course for some years 
and a strong Southern challenge 
was repelled when Premier Lad 
got up to beat the Lamboum 
newcomer Sbarblask. 

The 8-1 victory of the inirsk- 
trained colt brought a welcome 
change of fortune for William 
Pearce, whose horses have been 
out of sons. It was only his sixth 
winner this season.

Tyrone Williams, coming up the 
centre of the course, where the 
ground is fastest, was having a 
dream run on Easy Line. 

Although his mount is the 
lazy type, there was never any 
doubt once be got to the front 


going into the final furlong and 
the cnestni 

tut drew away to win 

Murray able to steadily 
right across to the far rails. 

The combination made

favourite Sbarblask took

smoothly on Premier Lad. who 
almost immediately challenged

Northern Amethyst, beaten 
a length by Top Range at

ger off a likely double for the

looks set to win the first 
division of the Tog Hill Fillies’ 
Stakes on Tahilla, the em- 
phatic winner of her first and 
only race so far at Newbury 
midway through last month. 

-Hooray Lady, a four-day 
acceptor, for their Bath race, 
runs instead in the EBF 
Avondale New Zealand 
Stakes at York and I feel that 
trainer Raul Cole’s decision to 
venture much further afield 
from his base at Wbatcombe 
could well pay dividends. 
Hooray Lady also ran very 
well in that same Newbury 
race to finish sixth eventually 
after being sent back to the 
saddling stalls to be replated 
after she had lost a shoe. 

. The Jockey Club yesterday 
fined Guy Harwood, the 
Pulborough trainer. £60 for 
failing to register the retainer

The disciplinary committee 
accepted Harwood's admission

with the registration of a re- 
tainer between owners and sta- 
ble jockeys.

Major-General Bernard 
Penfokl has retired after six 
years as chairman of the 
Horseracing. Advisory Council. 

Penfold, who is be succeeded 
by Sir Nevil Macready, made 
his final report at the Council’s 
annual general meeting yes- 
terday and stressed the im- 
portance of the negotiations 
between the Racecourse Associ- 
ation and bookmakers for the 
lit to transmit live satdite 
i coverage of tace meet- 

right to 
televison i 

togs to betting shops, and the 
on the finances 

resulting effect on 
of racecourses in the future. 

He also reported on the 
HACs work this year. This 
included iis support of the 20

recomenda lions for the in- 
troduction of restricted handi- 
caps to National Hunt racing 
and that geldings should be able 
to contest Flat pattern races. 

Penfokl said “We continue to 
be closely involved in the 
debates over Sunday racing, the 
revision of the entry system and 
all-weather tracks through the 
Jockey Club working parties. 

Looking ahead, Penfokl said 
that the HAC had proposed that 
the increase of prize money 
funds made available by the 
Levy Board should be used to 
benefit smaller racecourses, a 
view which the Board agreed 

The HAC will review the 
allocation of prize money for 
1988, in addition to examining 
the fixture list with its recom- 
mendations being implemented 
by 1989.

Hello Georgie provides 
a triple celebration 

The owner David Cunning- 
ham. trainer Roger Curtis and 

jockey Kevin Traylor will never 

forget vesierday’s sunny meet- 
ing at ’Fontwell Park because 
Hello Geoigie gave all three 
their first success with a 25-1 
victory in the Ford Novices' 

Hello Geoigie was the initial 
runner for his owner, the third 
for the trainer and only the 
second ride for Traylor since he 
joined Curtis six weeks ago. 

Beaurierc made a brave at- 
tempt to lead alj the wav and 
looked like pulling it off. es- 
pecially after (he favourite. Ku- 
wait Star, had crashed at the 
third, bringing down Golden 

The leader was joined two out 
and headed at the last by Hello 
Georgie, who stuck on gamely to 
hold Ri bo vino's challenge. 

Cunis said: “I used to have a 
stud, but it got a bit galling to see 
how nice horses go away only to 
be ruined before their time. I'm 

now out of the stud and in 
stables at Woodcote. near Pur- 
ley. formerly occupied by David 
Jermy. I've got 1 9 horses, nearly 
all bought cheaply at Ascot and 
a lot orthem are working just as 
well as this one.** 

Penny Ffitch-Heyes. aged 22. 
had a disappointing first ride as 
a professional on Manhattan 
Boy in the Oving Conditional 
Jockeys Selling Hurdle. 

As an amateur she had won 
twice on the four-year-old in the 
past fortnight, and Manhattan 
Boy was entitled to start 
favourite at 9-4. This time he 
did not have ihe best of runs, 
and finished fourth behind his 
market rival. Gold Floor. 

Miss Ffitch-Heyes said: “I got 
chopped off on every bend 
whether I went inside or 
outside" and her father. John. 

who trains Manhattan Boy, 
added: “We're all disappointed - 
that is all except the

Jack Buckner, fresh from his 
unexpected 5.000 metres victory 
hi the European championships, 
hopes to celebrate in style on 
Sunday by winning the Peugeot 
Talbot Westminster Mile. But 
the Chant wood athlete, whose 
win in Stuttgart has transformed 
him into a much sought after 

competitor, could nave his 
homecoming party spoilt by the 
presence in the fieW of David 
MoOKToft. John Walker and 

the accomplished Irish milers, 
Frank O'Mars and Marcus 

The first Westminster race, 
run last year around a square 
mile of the heart of Loudon, mu 
a great success with Steve 0*wt 
the winner. This year, the field 
seems as good .Buckner, who has 
nm under 3min 52sec for ike 
distance, will be also confronted 
by Tim Hatchings, whose brave 
run in Stuttgart contributed to 
Buckner's triumph besides earn- 
ing the Crawley attaktc a bronze 

Both O'Mara, winner of the 
Fifth Avenue Mile in New York 
last year, and O'Sallivan, the 
American indoor champion over 
the distance, will pose big 

The women's mile race also 
inclndes some top class perform- 
ers, beaded by last year's win- 
ner, Maricica Pnica, of 
Romania, (he Olympic 3,006- 
metres champion who managed 
only a silver medal in the 
European championships. She 

cotaM renew her rivalry with 
Yvonne Murray, the Scottish 
athlete who gained a su rprise 
bronze medal in Stuttgart and 
who is expected to ram. 

Confirmed starters are Kirsty 
Wade, the double Common-

. come from behind and record a 
world best of 3 minutes 39.323 
seconds, more than one second 
raster than the American. 

“Maybe I took it for-granted 
that I could win easily,” win 
Twigg after her defeat “But l 
oidn i expect Jeannie to go so 
fast I was hurting more than I 
usually do, and it was very cold 
out there." 

Twin's defeat highlighted the 
poor snowing of the home team 
that was expected to win at least 
two gold medals in the track 
racing but won only two silver 
and two bronze. 

The 10th successive title for 
Nakano, the 30-year-old Japa- 
nese superstar, was the emo- 
tional highlight of the final 
night. In his last championship, 

- he defeated in the final his likely 
successor and compatriot, 
Hideyuki Matsui. in two 
straight rides. Nakano rode 
consistently in his eight rides 
during the competition and only 
once went slower than ti see- 1 
onds lor the timed final 200 
■ metres, with a best of I(L57, a 
new world record. 

Following his final lap of 
honour, the charismatic Nakano 
said: “1 was happy to win again, 
but I was not satisfied with my 
limes. T had hoped to get much 
closer to 10 seconds.” 

Freuler was an easy, but not 
popular winner of the 50 
kilometres points race. It was 
obvious that his two Swiss 
colleagues and the repre- 
sentatives from Liechtenstein 
and Belgium were working 
closely with Freuler to control 
every attack, which allowed the 
tall Swiss rider to score maxi- 
mum points in eight of the 30 
sprints, fie won by a wide 
martin from Michel Vaarten, of 

The amateur points final ear- 
lier in the daywas a mud) more 
closely fought race with Dan 
Frost of Denmark scoring an 
equal number of points to East 
Germany's Olaf Ludwig. But the 
Dane won the gold medal 
thanks to a. higher number of 
first places in the sprints. 

Ludwig, who will be one of 
the favourites in the amateur 
road race championship next 
Sunday, was the eighth medal 
winner for East Germany who 
are dearly leading the medals 
table with four championship 
races to come.

hit back 
to win 

By Ivo_ Tennant 

Young Cricketers beat Sri 
Lanka Young Cricketers by six 

Some splendid batting by 
England's young cricketers, who 
had been outplayed on the first - 
two days, brought them victory 
in the third and final four-day 
representative match against Sri 
Lanka. They hence won the 
series 1-0. Needing 257 to win in 
4V>' hours, they batted with 
much confidence on a pilch that 
was still playing well. 

England were helped by Sri * 
Lanka’s strange reluctance to 
attack. At 41 for one 
Mai lawaratchi, one of the open- 
ing bowlers, had a deep extra 
cover, a long-off and only one 
slip. Yet England were by no 
means scoring their runs . 

RoMbeny and Bartlett were 
able to play.themsleves m and in 
due course take the attack to the . 
bowlets. Roseberry, who bas- 
played for Middlesex .but -has 
not made ' quite the j 
expected of him, drove 
fully through the off side. 

He and Bartlett, who was 
content initially to look for the 
singles, put on 126 in 36 overs. 
AJleyne kept up with the dock. 
Ramprakash. who is half Guya- 
nese struck a six on to the roof 
of the Century Restaurant stand 
— no mean blow fora 16-year- 
old — and Smith played some 
telling shots at the death. - . .

Greenidge runs 
for their money 

DERBY: Hampshire ^2Ipts) 
beat Derbyshire (2) by nine 

Gordon Greenidgc's 283 runs 
for once out against Derbyshire, 
whom Hampshire beat here 
yesterday with 6S overs to 
spare, effectively took Hamp- 
shire to their seventh success in 
the championship. It means also 
that Hampshire still retain, an 
interest, albeit a slender one, in 
the title and, perhaps more 
realistically, in the prize money 
in the Britannic Assurance 
county championship. 

Set to make 256 runs to win in 
three hours and 10 minutes, 
Hampshire’s victory looked 
more and more a probability as 
Greenidge's innings gathered 
momentum in a stirring, some- 
times ruthless exhibition of 

This has rather been 
Greenidge's match. After his 
second hundred yesterday 
. Greenidge moved on to make 
180 not out for 168 balls in 175 
minutes, by which time he had 
' hit three low-levH straight sixes 
off Miller, and 20 fours. It was 
an exerting, expansive innings 
containing as it did a marveffous 
helping of all those lovely 
touches and improvisations that 
are near enough exclusive to' 

■ The morning's sunshine and a 
brilliant light had replaced 
Monday's greyness and gloom, - 
though Derbyshire's batsmen 
appeared still to be In the dark 
when -it came to dealing with 
Marshall. Barnett and Maher 
quickly offered evidence lo sup- 
)Ort that 

Peter Marsoo 

acumen as Mara, Cowley, 
Robin Smith, and his brother 
Christopher and in a last ges- 
ture. Nicholas himself, afforded 
Derbyshire the opportunity to 
help themselves to as many runs 
as they needed before Barnett 
madb a sirirabte declaration: Hill 
made the fullest use of this 
additional licence to help him- 
self to bis third hundred of the 
season. By the time Barnett 
declared, HiH had made 1 19 not 
out and Geoff Miller, who was 
playing in his last match for 
Derbyshire, had made 39. 

Nicholas played weD to make 
32 of 105 runs for the first 
wicket before be was ran out to a 
splendid pick-up and throw 
from short midwicket 'by Tay- 
lor. one of three substitute 
fieldsmen for Hill, Monensea 
and Warner. Greenidge was 
then 71, and hereon, with 
Christopher Smith playing eas- 
ily and competently, the match 
moved irresistibly the way of

drawn match whan scores 

Only a few hours after he was 
discharged from hospital, 
Rejesh Sharma, the Derbyshire 
batsman, was yesterday named 
in the side for the Champion- 
ship game against North- 

Scarboroagh » 
sunniest spot on Monday, 
matching the cavalier style of 
New Zealand's cricket, but yes- 
terday the clouds returned, the 
wind stiffened and the air was 
heavy with traditional Yorkshire 
conspiracy, involving a certain 
Geoffrey Boycott, Ms f ut ure and 
Yorkshire’s machinations. More 
of that later. 

The 100th Scarboroagh Festi- 
val match meandered, after 
Monday’s firew o r k s, to a tame 
draw yesterday. This was 
historically fitting fa that the 
first match, in 1874, was equally 
inconclusive and by all accoants 
considerably duller. But while 
the top score then was a certain 
LD. Walker’s 42 for the visitors, 
this match was rescued from 
mediocrity by the record 317 of 
Ken Rutherford . — “quite 
extraordinary.*' according to Sir 
Leonard Hutton, the Scar- 
borough Cricket Club president: 

The only other man Hntfon 
had seen score a triple cent u ry . 
besides himself, was Don 
Bradman, who in 1948, in his 
last first-class Inning s , scored 
153 here — an inadequate 
compensation for his dock in the 
last Test match, denying a 100 
Test average by 0.04 runs an 


Two of Bradman's uadeifingi 
that day fa 1948, NeB Harvey 
and Ray Lindwall, were in 
attendance yesterday to mark 
the centenary. Ah. those were 
the days: foil grounds at Scar- 
borough with queues forming at 
8-Oam each day, the Australians 
rec all. Yesterday there were, 

charitably, L000, not the 13,000 
of the festival's heyday. 

The festival has- admirably 
beat revived but still needs 
' artificial resuscitation. The 
Aastrafians had delivered a 
seemingly frttal Wow some years 
ago by declining in come, a sanb 
repeated last year, bat at Rkfaie 
Ben aixd's exhortation and 
th an k s to the Scarborough 
Bo n di n g Society's spoosorslnp, 
the three-day tne 

visitors is back on the calendar 
and the sponsorship, expiring 
this year, is to be extended for at 
least another three. 

The problem is that with the 
conafy season extending so long 
it is hard to scrape together a 
strong enough invitation team. 
“In my day they would invite 18 
t and they would all come, 
seven of them wouldn't 
get a match," Sir Leonard 

By Panl Martin 

Britain's recalled 

“They were the next 
best thing to Tests." 

Hutton used the matches 
profitably — lining his pockets 
with the £1 awarded for 
century and the £2 for the 
double. He once scored 241 and 
made £4 in the three matches 
over nine days — “not bad at that 
tune." He wonld bolster his end- 
oFseason averages when playing 
against lesser fry - “the Gentle- 
men would have lunch in the 
tent, the Players in the pavilion, 
and after Inaai the Players were 
so intoxicated it were easy to 
hammer 'em," he chuckled. 

Yes. things ain't what they 
used to be, nor, as Punch once 
said, were they ever. “Too 
frivolous, getting worse and 
worse." gre&raiied a deck- 
chaired and soft-capped Robert 
Marshall, aged 74, of Baton 
Agnes. He began coming here 
aged him with his chnicb choir's 
annual outing. He remembers 
seeing Daleepsinhji scoring a 
century, his first sight of a man 
of cofawr. 

Mr Marshall is an ardent 
Boycott man — "should still be 
playing for England," be mut- 
tered. Young Geoffrey, however, 
disappointed himself — though, 
it seemed, not the crowd — by 
being bowled middle stamp for 
21 (the same dismissal as in the 
first innings, for 81). The crowd 
applauded politely bat no one 
stood up. despite reports that 
this may have been his last first- 
class innings. 

It is rumoured that be may net 
play next week ia the final 
comity match against North- 
amptonshire, so for the first time 
fa almost a quarter of a century 
he has failed to score L000 runs 
in a season, albeit with two 
months off through fafary. 

. “There is too mnch 
speculation, " Boycott ’said, 
declining an interview and tent- 
ing aside young autograph-hunt- 
ers. ‘^Oh. I wooldn't worry about 
him," . my taxi-driver said. 
"With that widow giving him 
£120,000, he's dose to a 

As Geoffrey would have told 
him, that entirely muses the 

Boycott's principal foe. Brian 
Close, sadly failed by six to 
make his 35,000th ran fa a first- 
class career that inducted con- 
tests against New Zealand 
extending bade to 1949, his 
opposing captain then being 
Walter Hadlee, now known 
rather better for his son's

4,000 competitors from 29 
countries are expected to 
participate in the Asian Games, 
opening in Seoul on September 
20 and regarded as a dress 
rehearsal for the 1988 Olympic 

The England stunners, John 
-Emburey and Phil Edmonds, 
took nine wickets between them 
as Middlesex overwhelmed 
Warwickshire to win by 100 
runs at Edgbaston yesterday. It 
was Middlesex's second 
successive win in the Britannic 
Assurance county champion- 
ship and moved them further 
away from the foot of the table. 

-Srt to make 251 in what 
became 67 overs, Warwickshire 
were strong contenders until 
their opener. Smith, gave a catch 
to short mid- wicket off 
Emburey after making 79 out of 
131 for four. 

The rest of the innings col- 
lapsed. Edmonds took four for 
four in four overs — including 
the important wicket of 
Hurnpage for 37 — and 
Warwickshire were rushed out 
for J 50. The last six wickets fed! 
in half an hour, Emburey finish- 

ing with five for 51 and Ed- 
monds four for 67, after a top- 
level performance by fast year's 

Ian Botham, still serious in 
his threat to leave Somerset, 
rescued them against Leicester- 
shire at Grace Road with one of 
his most responsible 
innings. Botham's 74 occupied 
six minutes under two hours 
and came at a vital tune; but he 
still found time to hit three sixes 
and eight fours, although he also 
showed his defensive qualities 
in a fifth wicket stand of 136 
with Harden, who made 63. The 
draw was a minor triumph for 
Somerset, who bad followed on 
180 runs adrift. Somerset lost 
four early wickets yesterday for 
the addition of 37 runs, after 
resuming at 196 for no wicket. 
Felton and Roebuck added only 
two to their first-wicket partner- 
ship and when Hardy and Rose 

also fell, Somerset were facing 

However, Botham and 
Harden batted superbly, 
Botham smiting Taylor for two 
successive sixes over long-on. 
When both fell within the space 
of six runs. Somerset were still 
fallible at 375 for six. iwt the 
tail, with Marks unbeaten on 23. 
held out long enough against 
Leicestershire^ tiring bowlers to 
reach 416 for nine declared, 
leaving the home side an im- 
probable 90 minutes to score 

Australian Test boweter Terry 
Alderman, who has taken 98 
first class wickets for Kent this 
season, is still having treatment 
for his shoulder iiyiny and may 
miss the game against Warwick- 
shire starting at Folkestone to- 
day. If he does not play he will 
have only one game left to reach 
the hundred mark. 


A Royal 
for Japan 

By David Hands 
Rugby Correspondent 
The final game of Japan's 
eight-match tour to Scotland 
ana England, which begins later 
this month, will be m the 
presence of Princess Anne, who 
will watch an England XV play 
the touring side at Twickenham 
on October i 1. Since the Prin- 
cess has also agreed to become 
patron to the Scottish Rugby 
Union, it is a happy Wend. 

The Japanese tour, which 
begins when the team reach 
London on September 13. will 
be sponsored by Toshiba Inter- 
national Ltd., the company 
whose own works firm toured in 
Britain two years ago. The 
agreement, believed to be worth 
over £50,000, extends to tmyd 
to and from Japan and during 
the tour which takes the 26- 
strong playing party as far north 
as Aberdeen and south to 

It will be the fourth national 
side from Japan to visit Britain, 
and develops the commitment 
io rugby which Toshiba began in 
1984. and extended last season 
when they sponsored Wales’s 
two homes games, against Scot- 
land and France. 

The tour manager is Shiggy 
Konno, whose name has long 
been synonymous with Japa- 
nese rugby, and the party will be 
captained by Toshiyuki 
Hayashi. the much -travelled 
Kobe Steel lock. Seiji Hirao. 
who played for Richmond last 
season, will lead the backs.

Holders at 
with gaps 

Bath, the John Player Special 
Cup holders, open their season 
against Pontypool this evening 
without their two regular locks 
and the inspirational presence of 
Spurrell, their long-serving 
flanker and former captain (Da- 
vid Hands writes). 

Nevertheless, they take eight 
internationals to Pontypool 
Park, among them HalL who 
has recently returned from a 
summer spent playing in 
Australia. Another Bath player, 
Morrison, the lock, has also 
been in Australia, but has not 
yet returned, while Redman, bis 
regular partner in the second 
row, has himself been away on 

The badcrow includes Robin- 
son. who made such an impact 
as captain of Loughborough 
University fast season, and 
made his way into the combined 
English Students side. The 
experience this evening should 
be of immense value to him, 
even if Pontypool start the 
season under something of a 
cloud because of the sentence 
handed out this week to Bishop, 
their scrum-half. 

Yorkshire give 
their jubilee 
a silver lining 

Schools rugby 
by Michael Stevenson 

To many of its organizers and 
supporters, Colts rugby is tbe 
neglected area of tbe game in 
England. However, with the 
deteriorating condition of rugby 
in state schools, its contribution 
has become increasingly ob- 
vious as well as crucial. 

In this context the highly 
successful tour of Canada by 
Yorkshire Colts, who are this 
year celebrating their silver 
jubilee, is the more significant. 
They played five games and won 
them all. their final two matches 
bringing especially pleasing 

They heal the Canadian 
champions, British Columbian 
Juniors. 2 1-6 in Vancouver.Tbis 
was easily their toughest match 
of the tour but a penalty try and 
a try by Horton, plus two 
conversions and three penalties 
from Irving, gave them a 
convincing victory. 

In the previous game, York- 
shire had beaten Vancouver 
Island Juniors 18-10 by means 
of tries by Irving and Knapp and 
two penalties and two convert 
sions from Irving.

England beat Germans 
to underline form 

From Sydney Friskin 

West Germany. 

England's World Cup hopes 
received a solid boost here 
yesterday when they defeated 
West Germany in the first of 
two international matches. This 

was England's first win over the n i 

Germans since they had beaten through the middle of ihe'fieM 
tnem in London. in 1981. to «im a chnri mm*r in rh» VWh 

The Germans were com-

England went further ahead in 
the 1 1th minute from a short 
corner which was taken by 
Barber, whose hit from the top 
of the circle seemed to have 
been a little high. The German 
goalkeeper saved, but was un- 
able to clear, and Sherwani 
pushed the ball in. 

The Germans then came 

tide whose policy of attack paid 
rich dividends. The German 
defence were torn to pieces by 
the dazzling runs of Keriv who 
set the home side a number of 
taxing problems. 

A freak goal by Kerly put 
England ahead in the sixth 
minute. He ran on to meet a 
pass from Leman, and was 
confronted inside the circle by 
the goalkeeper who attempted to 
kick the ball, but made contact 
with Kcrly’s stick instead. The 
England centre-forward had 
played the ball which trickled 
into goal much to the surprise of 
the goalkeeper and the whole 
German team.

ate response from the Germans.

the corner with a rasping shot. 
In the 24ih minute, England 
were penalized for obstruction 
in a confused scene inside the 
circle. The East German umpire 
awarded West Germany a pen- 
alty stroke. Then the two um- 
pires went into conference and 
the decision was changed to a 
short comer from which 
Fischer's shot was saved by 
Taylor. The game developed 
into a sharp contest.

Mexicans pay 
the penalty 
for World Cup 

Mexico City (Reuter) — 
Two months after the eu- 
phoria of the World Cup. 
football in Mexico has sunk 
into a shambles of scandal, 
disgrace and disappointment. 
The host nation's timid at- 
tempt at penalty-taking in a 
World Cup quarter-final 
match against West Germany 
on June 21 was the beginning 
of the slide. 

Mexico submitted like 
iambs before lions in the 
penalty shoot-out and failed to 
reach the semi-finals, the 
minimum achievement most 
Mexican supporters had 
hoped for. Then came the 
transfer to European dubs of 
I’vo of the few crowd-drawing 
risers left to watch in this 
country, the bustling forward 
Luis Flores to Sporting Gijon. 
of Spain, and the stylish 
midfield player Manuel 
Negrete to Sporting Lisbon, of 

But “Mexico 86.” with its 
colourful national flags, its 
drama, its Argentinian joy and 
Brazilian tears, became a dis- 
tant memory on August 17 
after one of the worst disgraces 
ever seen on a football field. 
The scene, the giant Azteca 
Stadium, where Argentina's 
Diego Maradona hoisted the 
.coveted gold World Cup on 
June 29. If. as they say, every 
stadium has a personality, the 
Azteca must have wept with 
sorrow on that black August 

The stadium was hosting 
the traditional annual 
"needle” match between two 
of the country's top clubs, the 
Goats (Chivas), from Guada- 
lajara, and the Eagles of 
America (Aguilas de Amer- 
ica). from Mexico City. The 
game is known here as "the 
classic of classics.” But the 
100.000 spectators saw little 
more than a classic needle 
match until the 72nd minute 
when all he)) broke loose on 
the pitch. 

In a simple twist of fate, 
Fernando Quirane. a full-back 
who scored two fine goals for 
Mexico in the World Cup 
finals, initiated the scenes that 
followed. He fouled his fellow 
World Cup player, Carlos 
Hermosillo. who promptly 
kicked his old colleague while 
Quirane was still on the 

Antonio Marquez, the ref- 
eree who had gained world- 
wide respect for his handling 
of his World Cup matches, 
sent off both players. But the 
grey-haired Marquez, for 
whom this was his farewell 
match, could scarcely have 
envisaged such an end to his 
career, not even in his worst 

Guadalajara players chased 
Hermosillo from the pitch and 
within seconds the turf was 
like a battlefield, with all the 

players and substitutes from 
both sides joining in. A flus- 
tered Marquez showed the red 
card to all 22 players, sus- 
pended the encounter and said 
a soured farewell to the game. 

Mexico are used to crowd 
violence and their players are 
no angels. But the outcome of 
the classic of classics stunned 
football followers and brought 
outraged reaction in the Press. 
Mexico City authorities fined 
the Americas dub more than 
$1,000 (about £675) and the 
Guadalajara club more than 

As controversy grew over 
the status or the suspended 
match result (the Eagles of 
America were 1-0 up when the 
inddent took place) the Mexi- 
can football federation an- 
nounced this week that the 
remaining 18 minutes of the 
match should be played at a 
future date. None of the 
players shown the red card, 
however, will be permitted to 
play, giving both team's re- 
serve players a chance to 
prove themselves, at least for 
IS minutes. 

.As if the .Azteca disgrace 
were not enough. Mexico's 
vouth side were recently 
knocked out of the World 
Youth Cup in the qualifying 
rounds for North and Central' 
America and the Caribbean. 
The news brought shocked 
and cynical headlines in the 
Mexican Press. The youth 
players were to have formed 
the basis of a side to run away 
with the senior World Cup in 
Italy in 1992. 

The fiict that such develop- 
ing football nations as Cuba 
and Trinidad and Tobago 
went further in the qualifying 
rounds nibbed salt in the 
Mexicans' wounds. And so 
Mexican football is in the 
doldrums. 1986 World Cup 
memories stained. 

All that remains are the 
specially-erected road signs 
pointing to the World Cup 
stadia, which some people 
now say are eyesores and 
should be removed, and the 
fading flags of the 24 compet- 
ing nations painted on road- 
side walls to brighten up slum 
areas of the capital. 

With their domestic foot- 
ball at an ebb. Mexican 
supporters are looking to their 
exiles in Europe, notably Flo- 
res. Negrete and the Real 
Madrid goalscoring machine, 
Hugo Sanchez, to restore their 
lost prestige. 

A Mexican television sta- 
tion. which televised almost 
all Real's games last season, 
because of Sanchez, is ex- 
pected to show most of them 
again this season, perhaps 
alternating with matches 
involving Gijon or Lisbon to 
give supporters a glimpse of 
the other Mexican kids-made- 

Belgians blossom 

Brussels (AP) — Belgian of- 
ficials are hoping the national 
squad's outstanding fourth 
place performance in the World 
Cup will encourage the league 
clubs to bury several years of 
game fixing scandals, declining 
gates and hooliganism in a 
spluree of goals this season. 

“if coaches and players are 
prepared to play attacking foot- 
ball. then the World Cup will 
have a good effect.” Michel 
D'Hooghe. the league president 
said, "we now have a very good 
base to work on." 

And FC Bruges. Andcrlccht 
and Standard Liege duly 
obliged, winning 8-0. 3-1 and 5- 
0. all displaying attractive, open 

It was good news for those 
who want to attract more spon- 
sors and limil dependency on 
gates receipts. “Sponsors don't 
want to be identified with 
negative football." D'Hooghe 
said. “The masses will mum to 

the stadia and commerial in- 
terest will also increase if dubs 
continue to play open football,” 
he said. 

But Belgian clubs face a rocky 
road to success as their inter- 
national players like Erwin 
Vandenbcrgh and Philippe Des- 
meL the forwards. Jean-Marie 
PfalT. the goalkeeper, and Eric 
Gems, the defender, continue 
to be attracted by the money at 
other clubs throughout Europe. 

Little has filled the void left 
by these national players. Shaky 
club management and declining 
gates in recent seasons have 
brought financial strain on 
many clubs. 

Also, clubs have had to invest 
heavily to increase security in 
the wake of the 1985 Heysel 
Stadium disaster.But that does 
not worry Guy Thys. the na- 
tional manager. “Our football 
Has a positive reputation again. 
We can drop our false 
modesty." he says positively.

FIFA back 

Zurich (AP) - The knockout 
system used in the 1986 World 
Cup finals, including the penalty 
shoot-outs needed to decide 
some games, were an "essential 
and positive element of the 
championship,” according to 
FIFA, football's world govern- 
ing body. 

FIFA indicated an early 
change in this sudden-death 
factor was unlikely, though 
acknowledging that it drew 
“substantial criticism.” Josef 
Blatter, the general secretary, 
wrote in FIFA’s latest monthly 
bulletin: “FIFA will examine the 
system. We feel however that 
generally it has proven to be 
worthwhile- Also the reputation 
of the World Cup finals is 
harmed If the system is changed 
each time.” 

Knockout compet i tion after 
the first round was in trod need ia 
Mexico. Penalty shoot-outs, 
with sodden death after the first 
five shots for each team, were 
used to establish a winner after 
90 minutes of normal time and 
two 15-minute extra periods. 

Blatter ruled out replays or 
sodden-death play to decide 
matches, saying this cannot 
guarantee equal chances for 
participating teams. “The play- 
ers are still the decisive factor in 
taking penalties,” he wrote. 

Greeks to 
first game 

Athens (AP) — Greek first di- 
vision players voted yesterday 
to boycott the opening of the 
1986-87 season this weekend to 
protest against a controversial 
new law restricting transfers. 

The decision was made by the 
executive committee of the 
players' union, which represents 
the players of Greece’s 16 first 
division clubs. A union spokes- 
man said the players decided on 
a one-game boycott to protest 
against the transfer law. passed 
by Parliament last month 
Under the law. a player whose 
contract is up for renewal has 10 
days to accept his club’s offer or 
agree to a bid from another 
team. The player is bound to his 
club if it outbids the competing 
offer. Previously, a player could 
become a free agent by paying 
his- club 130 per cent of the 
contract renewal offer, the 
union spokesman said. 

The spokesman said players 
from teams in Athens and 
southern Greece will gather iu 
the capital this weekend to 
discuss the law. while those in 
teams from the central and 
northern pan of the country will 
meet in Salonica. 

Scots backs up at 
English ‘abuse’ 

Walsall, of the English third, 
division, have been attacked by 
Tommy McLean, the manager 
of Motherwell, for abusing the 
transfer system. The Scottish 
premier division dub have 
learned that their central de- 
fender, Graeme Forbes, whom 
they value at £100.000. has 
walked 6ut on them and is 
signing for Walsall. 

Motherwell, who were first 
contacted by Tommy Coakley, 
the Walsall manager, who is a 
former Motherwell player, have 
been offered only £10,000. 
“This is the worst abuse of the 
transfer system I have ever 
come across,”McLean said . "it 
is cheating and abusing the 
whole system and has shocked 

"I was contacted by Walsall 
on Saturday and advised them 
of the value we put on Forbes, 
which is £100,000. .They have 
sent us a letter offering £10.000 
and as far as we are concerned 
there was no attempt to nego- 
tiate a deal, which is what is 
supposed to happen.” 

The matter is certain to go to 
an international tribunal to 
settle the fee. 

• Frank McGarvey, the St 
Mirren forward, has shocked his 
club by asking for a transfer, 
■because he believes they are not 
ambitious enough. McGarvey, 
previously with Celtic and 
Liverpool, says he would be 
willing to return to England.

Jobs to go 
after Cup 

ignominy supporters 

Budapest (Reuter) — The 
Hungarian state sport office has 
criticized the football federation 
and said staff would be replaced 
because of the “fiasco” of -the 
national team's performance at 
the Mexico World Cup finals. 

Hungary failed to recover 
from a 6-0 thrashing by the 
Soviei Union in their first 
match and were knocked out 
after the first round. Gyorgy 
Mezeu the manager, resigned 
after a 3-0 defeat by France. 

The state ofilre said a study 
showed leadership errors, poor 
preparations and low morale. 
"A comprehensive evaluation 
of the preparation and perfor- 
mance was not made even after 
the failure in Mexico,” it said. 
The office said the football 
federation would be streamlined 
and staff replaced next month. 

The study reported that play- 
ers showed symptoms of being 
overtrained at the finals and the 
team disintegrated because the 
players were in low spirits and 
bad physical condition and 
lacked fight. The players were 
criticized for being too lax 
during practice sessions and in 
their private lives without fear, 
of punishment, the study said. 

Zurich (Reuter) — Standing 
room at FC Zurich's next home 
match win be free and some seat 
prices substantially reduced in 
an effort to attract more 
supporters and ensure the Swiss 
first division dub's survival. 

Sven Hotz. the dub president, 
said that there would be no 
charge on the terraces for the 
match against La Chaux-de- 
Fonds on September 13 and the 
cost of the cheapest seats would 
be reduced to 12 francs (about 
£5) from 30 francs. 

“This is no gimmick. Jt is a 
matter of survival.” said Hotz, a 
wealthy industrialist who regu- 
larly bolsters the dub's finances 
from his private funds. “We 
cannot go on like this. We have 
to bring the spectators back. We 
hope that, with substantial 
reductions in the price of seats 
we can lure them away from the 
standing room areas.” 

Ticket receipts for the same 
fixture last season totalled just 
1.714 francs before taxes and 
players’ bonuses. Only a few 
hundred paying spectators were 
present in the 26,000 capadty 
stadium. Attendances averaged 
5.000 per match in the 16-team 
first division last season. 

Lancashire's senior citizen retains his warmth for cricket in retirement near Old Trafford 

Fifty years on Phillipson’s fires bum brightly 

In his 76th year Eddie 
Phillipson. the former Lan- 
cashire all-rounder and Test 
umpire, is as dear of eye and 
square of shoulder as any 
guardsman. At a recent re- 
union of former Lancashire 
players at Old Trafford during 
the Essex match, the opinion 
among those present — includ- 
ing the striplings, Cyril 
Washbrook and Winston Pl- 
ace. in their early 70s — was 
that Phillipson is the senior

Test status. He had been told 
shortly before the «ar by bis 
fellow Lancastrian, Tommy

years to earn a regular place in

ment in his batting was illus- 
trated by a brave and 
accomplished hundred at Old

Larwood and Voce. 

Phillipson's philosophy of 
fast bowling might be profit- 
ably studied by a number of 
modern practitioners: “My

though I only played against 
him in dub cricket. I suppose I 
bowled around the same pace 
as BSI Bowes and like him f

When the war came, 
Phillipson was well estab- 
lished as one of die country's 
leading all-rounders. In 1937, 
having missed seven matches 
through injury, he had taken 
131 wickets and scored 896 
runs, the nearest he got to the 
coveted “double”. 

He spent his war as a drill 
and PT instructor in the RAF 
but after it never quite re- 
captured his skill and fire as a 
bowler, apart from the final 
Victory Test match against the 
Australian services in 1945 in 
which he helped England to 
victory at his beloved Old 
Trafford. He took nine wickets

The Women's Professional 
Golf Association Tour returns 
to Scotland today for the first 
time since 1981 and brings with 
it a special interest in the five 
leading Scottish professionals — 
Gillian Stewart. Muriel Thom- 
son, Dale Reid, Catherine 
Panton and Jane Connachan. In 
that order they lie second, third, 
1 1th, 15th and 16th in the Ring 
and Brymer order of merit. 

A victory for any one of them 
in the Bowing Scottish Open at 
Dalmahoy would surely be 
accompanied by a patriotic sltiri 
of the pipes on Saturday. But a 
number of formidable figures 
stand in their way. among them 
two Australians, in Corinne 
Dibnah and Karen Lana, Laura 
Davies, of England, and most 
notably, Liselotte Neumann, 
aged 20, from Sweeten. 

Miss Neumann is the player 
of the year, realising in her 
second season as a professional 
the glittering potential she 
showed as an amateur. In II 
tournaments she has only once 
finished lower than seventh and 
in the last six she has only once 
sooted above par, and that by a 
single stroke. In the other five 
tournaments she has finished, 
successively, -seven under par, 
one under, five under, six under 
and two under. For the six 
tournaments as a whole she was 
therefore 20 under par. 

Her consistency is such that m 
the 23 individual rounds (the 
last day’s play in one tour- 
nament was abandoned) she was 
only four times over par. 

With six tournaments to play. 
Miss Neumann has already 
established a record for a 
season's prize-money. With 
£31,908 she has surpassed Miss 
Reid’s [985 record by £3,669. 
This is a Swede to savour while 
we may, because' she is almost 
certain to uy for her player's 
card in the United States next 
summer. Miss Neuman is 
dearly the player to beat in the 
next four days.

the thought of challenging for 
the Ebd European Masters,

St Andrews buy land 

The management committee 
of the St Andrews Links Trust 
have acquired a large tract of 
land in the neighbouring area 
with the I ntenti o n of taking the 
historic golfing terrain, com- 
promising the Old Comae, die 
New, tbeEdeu, and the Jubilee, 
into the next century. 

The new area, of 100 acres, 
has been bought from Mrs G 
Cbeape, a Fife landowner, for an 
mdisdkwed sum, but locally 
thought to be about £2504)00. 

The principle aims of the 
committee are to provide proper 
practice faculties, complete with 
driving range, to upgrade the 
Jubilee cours e and perhaps to 
extend the present nine-hole 
course to foD size, so that the 


Williams set 
to tackle a 

area would provide five 1 8-hole 
courses by the year 2000. 

At present a visitor needs to 
book two months in advance for 
a round eo the Old Coarse, or 
j dhi HC R on betas tacky bi 
the daily ballet. All four courses 
are fully occupied Grom Easter to 
October, so that a fifth wo Hid 
help considerably to relieve the 

The management committee 
will also consider the provision 
of locker rooms for visitors. At 
present the only changing facu- 
lties available are at Smacks 
Hotel nearby, which briefly 
belonged to the Trust. Its sale, a 
year or so ago to Trusthonse 
Forte is beDevcd to have yielded 
a large enough profit to fund the 
new development.

New lease 
of life 
for Bugner 

Sydney (AP) - Joe Bugner, 
the former European and 
Commonwealth heavyweight 
champion, ex pres sed satisfac- 
tion yesterday with his fitness as 
he continued his preparations 
for his comeback against James 
“Quick” IHIis, of United States, 
on September 15.

will end a 30-month absence 
from the ring when he takes on

ever been in my career,” the 36- 
year-oM Bugner said. 

Bugner was unable to spar 
yesterday after badly bruising 
tire ribs of his main spurring 
partner, Niko Degel, the Fijian 
heavyweight champion, at the 
weekend. Tony Fulflaagi, a US- 
based Tougan and world-rated

critics but he’s never faltered 
while working with me and the 
improvement in his condition 
over the past few weeks has been 
amazing,” Lewis said.

Search for the 
boy in Britain 

By Chris Than 
NatWest has stepped in to 
help British weightlifting launch 
a nationwide recruiting drive 
among schoolchildren. 
“Frankly, we are trying to 
emulate the Australians,” the 
secretary of the British 
Weightlifting Association, 
Wally Holland, said. 

“They launched a national 
scheme designed to find talent 
at an early stage, a few years ago. 

It [aid off. Their Olympic 
super-heavyweight champion. 
Dean Lukin, is a product ofthis- 
recniitment campaign. We have 
tied up a deal over three years 
with NatWest to sponsor the 
NatWest Strongest Schoolboy 
contest in Britain." 

Weightlifting officials frit en- 
couraged by the response to an 
early attempt to launch a similar 
contest. There were 2,400 en- 
tries last year compared to 3.100 
this year, a remarkable increase 
of about 31 per cent The 
winning schoolboys will be pre- 
sented with medals, and all 
participants will receive diplo- 
mas. The winning schools will 
be presented with weightlifting

modation for his wife and

player, Todd Bidner, as their 
player/coach, the Pirates <thn,.trt 
dominate division one in the 
forthcoming season and, thunk* 
to an overhaul of their commit- 
tee structure since last season's 
disasters, their organization is 

such that they ought to stay in 
the premier division once they 
get back into iL 

Unger sees his engagement 
with the Pirates as more than a 
short-term arrangement. He 
said from his Edmonton, Al- 
berta. home yesterday; “! see it 
as a two-year exercise, if not 
longer. I also see it as a chance to 
get involved with a team that 
has yet to win anything signifi- 
cant and also as a chance to help 
their junior development." 

latent but logo and look for ft at 
an early age. We are short of 
both very small and very heavy 
boys. We hope to find them in 
schools.” Holland added. 

The contest will be open to 
boys and girls between 13 and 
17 years of age, lifting in 
separate competitions. “We*ve 
opened the contest to girls as 
well because we don't want to 
discriminate, in feet, women’s 
weightlifting is taking off fast- . 

. “Last year, 5 1 ladies took part 
in an unofficial national tour- 
nament This year in November 
we. hold the fust official 
weightlifting championships, 
but we had to introduce qualify- 
ing standards in order to limit 
the number of entries to 50. We 
want to use the women's 
championship to select the 
rouad for the first worfd 
championship in the United 
States next year.”

on brink of 
their fourth title 





By John Woodcock. Cricket Correspondent 

FOLKESTONE: Essex (22pts) 
beat Kent (6) hr 23 runs. 

Essex won their first county 
championship in 1979. By 
beating Kent yesterday they 
made sure, to ail intents and 
purposes, of winning it for the 
fourth lime and for the first 
time under Graham Gooch. 
Having left Kent to make 184 
to win in three hours (or a 
minimum of 47 overs) on a 
turning pitch, they bowled 
them out for 160 with 20 bails 
to spare. 

Nottinghamshire, the only 
side with a realistic chance of 
catching Essex before yes- 
terday, would probably not 
have been greatly impressed 
by Kent's performance. But 
Kent were under as much of 
an obligation to themselves to 
try and win the match as they 
were to Nottinghamshire to 
save it at any cose and it was 
an entertaining day's cricket 

Essex took their chance very 
well. Technically. Not- 
tinghamshire are now the only 
side that can catch them: but' 
for that to happen Not- 
tinghamshire would have to 
get maximum points from 
their last three games and 
Essex fewer than eight from 
their last two. 

John Childs was again the 
Essex match-winner, taking 
his tally of wickets for the 
season to 89 and since the start 
of August to S3. Finding 
another helpful pitch he kept 
his head and his length and his 
line. At 35. he is having the 
time of his life, thanks not 
least to Fred Tiimus. who 
took him in hand last winter, 
encouraging him to attack 
rather more than he used to 
do. to bowl a little faster and 
run a little further. 

For the first half of the day 
Kent were able to leave Essex 
to make the running, knowing 
that, as the championship 
leaders, they would not hesi- 
tate to risk defeat in the search 
for vfctory. Even so, it was two 
extravagant strokes, by Chris- 
topher Cowdrey and Diiley in 
the 95th and 98th overs of 
Kent's first innings, that gave 
Essex their fourth bonus point 
for bowling. 

Essex had extended their 
lead of 56 to one of 93 by 
lunch for the loss of Gooch 
and Prichard. Gooch losing 
his off stump to Ellison. Of the 
1 27 for three that Essex settled 
for in this innings.

Gower steps down 

David Gower is to be re- 
placed as captain of Leicester- 
shire. The 29-year-old 
batsman, who was relieved of 
the England captaincy earlier 
in the summer, has held the 
position since 1984, the year 
he was given the ' England 
leadership. Gower will receive 
a benefit from the county next

Turner said: “In view of his 
likely involvement in Test 
matches next summer and the 
added commitment of having a 
benefit, I believe David should 
be given a rest from the 
captaincy. It is a combination 
of things that has led to this 

action and 1 feel David has lost 
his enthusiasm for the day-to- 
day county scene.'" 

A Leicestershire committee 
meeting is expected to approve 
the decision next month and 
Gower's successor is likely to 
be Peter Willey, the dob's 
vice-captain. Gower is not at

to the regular bowlers as wdL 
He is 21, quite tall and slim, 
and he makes a lot of runs. 
This was his fourth first-class 
fifty of the season. 

Cowdrey was more gen- 
erous than he needed to be in 
giving Aslett six overs. Essex 
could have declared anyway, 
and but for this Kent would 
have had fewer to win. As it 
was, 184 was always going to 
take a lot of getting on such a 
slow pitch with the ball turn- 
ing as it was, even at a run a 
minute. Taking time to play 
themselves in, Benson and 
Taylor added 47 in 18 overs, 
but as soon as Kent tried to 
push things along they started 
to lose wickets. 

In the second over after tea 
Taylor was brilliantly caught 
by Fletcher, low and left- 
handed at second slip off 
Lever. Within half an hour 
Tavare had been caught at leg 
slip off a turning leg-break; 
Benson had chopped on to 
Childs, trying to run him 
down to third man; and 
Graham Cowdrey bad been 
caught at the wicket off Chikls 
and his brother bowled, also 
by Childs, making room to 
something too straight and 
well up to him. That was 86 
for five with an hour to go. 

Essex kept up the mo- 
mentum when Ellison and 
Aslett both fell to Childs, 
Aslett having played 
admirably. East had a difficult 
time at the wicket yesterday, 
but when, at 1 17, he stumped 
Aslett the chances of a Kent 
victory had almost gone. But 
not quite. Diiley and Marsh 
added 33. there being no deep- 
set field to stop them. Then 
Marsh, who was full of go, 
made 10 more with Under- 
wood. In the end, though, 
chasing runs was just too 
hazardous a business.

Mandlikova’s early exit as

From Rex Bellamy, Tennis Correspondent, New York 

Hana Mandlikova, who de- 
feated Chris Lloyd and

consecutive matches to win 
the title last year, was beaten 
64, 1-6, 6-3 by Wendy

not been stopped at such an 
early stage of the tournament

since the women's champion 
has been dismissed so soon. 

A twisted ankle interfered 
with Miss Mandlikova's 
preparation for the champion- 
ships and in this match her 
confidence was sapped by the 
quality of Miss Turnbull's 
tennis, by the unusual experi- 
ence of playing under flood-

Miss Turnbull, uged 33, is

and the French final in 1979, 
losing to Mrs Lloyd on each 
occasion. Miss Turnbull also 
advanced to the US semi- 
finals in 1978 and 1984. In 
recent years she has- had some 
injuries, has put on a few

Miller on

Geoff Miller, aged 33. a 
former England all-rounder, is

of his three-year contract still 
to run. Derbyshire's chief 
executive. Roger Pearman, 
said: “He has asked for his 
release and with regret we 
have agreed to his wishes.” 

Pearman would not expand 
on Miller's reasons for leaving 
the county for which he made 
his debut in 1973. and the 
player yesterday refused to 
comment It is not known 
whether Miller intends to seek 
another county, but Pearman 
added: “We would not stand 
in his way." Miller played 34 
Tests and 25 limited-over 
internationals for England, 
and had a benefit in 1985

other unusually tall young 
women on the circuit she

By David Hands 
Rugby Correspondent 

It was a melancholy co- 
incidence which saw a new 
rugby season open with the 
news of a player being jailed 
for violence on the field. At a 
time when all four home 
unions are more than ever 
conscious of the game's image 
the sentence passed on David 
Bishop, the Ptontypool and 
Wales scrum half - subject 
though it is to appeal — could 
hardly have been timed worse. 

The Welsh Rugby Union 
meet tomorrow to consider the 
case which was brought pri- 
vately against Bishop by Chris 
Jarman, the Newbridge lock, 
who was the subject of 
Bishop's unwanted attentions 
can hardly be denied that 
Bishop has brought the game 
into disrepute and, in view of 
the hard line laid down on 
indiscipline by the Welsh 
Rngby Union last season, a 
severe Boot permanent expo), 
skm from tire game may be 

But even allowing for 
Pontypool's less than genteel 
approach to the game, die 
problem of violence is one with 
which all four home unions 
have to deaL Last month a 
Midlands dub player was 
banished from the game and, I 
understand, the case of a 
player who assaulted a referee 
was sent to the Procurator- 
fiscal in Scotland before being 
referred back to the Scottish 
Rugby Union. 

There will be a traditional 
school of thought which says 
that rngby is a “man's game" 
and should be left alone to deal 
with its own sinners; that if tire 
spotlight foil this time on 
Bishop, others as guilty and 
more guilty than be have got 
away with it in the past. That 
is baloney. If a player cannot 
control himself in a game 
where physical violence is so 
easy to perpetrate he should 
not be allowed to play it 

Valley of 
the Mauls 

Alan Jones, the Australian 
coach, whose second string 
crushed Thames Valley 31-7 
in Australia's penultimate 
Rugby Union match in New 
Zealand in a game marred by 
fighting, complained about 
the home side’s over- 
aggressiveness. They were 
understood to be angered by 
the Australians walking out of 
the small town's bolds be- 
cause they were considered 

Those who played the game 
30 or more years ago wifi tell 
yon ft was a far rougher sport 
but that incidents of fool play 
tended to go unreported and 
.lacked the critical eye of 
television. A former colleague 
of mine used to complain that 
when football supporters 
broke up a train it was 
hooliganism but If rngby 
supporters did the same to a 
hotel ft was high spirits. 

Rugby in the 1980s does not 
permit such excesses. I believe 
there are other cases of assault 
on a rugby field going through 
the appropriate judicial proce- 
dures. The general public are 
so much more aware of their 
rights in law these days that if 
rugby players do not under- 
stand now that they remain 
culpable before civil authority 
they never win. 

The governing bodies of the 
game must ensure that they do 
not reimqnish control of disci- 
pline to the law courts. It has 
been said often enough in 
these columns that these cases 
of violence would not arise in 
such number if players who 
were known thugs — however 
charming ami sociable many if 
them undoubtedly are away 
from the field of play'— were 
not picked. The answer lies in 
the hands of national, regional 
and club selectors. 

In other areas where the 
game has run op against 
contemporary social problems 
ft has acquitted itself welL 
Drag-testing, for instance, 
which was virtually unthink- 
able 10 years ago. has been 
carried out on senior inter- 
national squad members in 
England and Scotland. 

The numbers involved are 
not large and, as far as 1 am 
aware, no positive results have 
been obtained. In the case of 
the Scottish schoolboys par- 
ents will be kept informed at 
all stages but it is an area in 
which the sports councils of 
the various countries have 
been pressing ‘governing bod- 
ies hard for action, and rngby 
has accepted the 

But it is wokh bearing in 
mind that we are moving into 
the age of the rngby player as 
an athlete; that many national 
sqnads are being introduced to 
athletic techniques hi their 
preparation for the game. If 
rugby can adopt some of the 
virtues of athletics ft may also 
adopt some of its vices and the 
problem of drug abuse is one 
that the athletics authorities 
world-wide are desperately 
trying to eradicate. Rugby 
cannot say fa has not been
