Seventy-five people were

gest yet launched by Avon and 
Somerset police. 

Nine of foe 600 policemen 
who took pat were injured, 
one seriously, in sporadic 
rioting by marauding gangs 
that came after raids in which 
drugs and stolen property 
were seized. Five 
peoplc.including three

paroes merge 

By Robin Oakley, Political Editor 

Mr David Steel, the Liberal 
leader, ytsterday backed a 
formal union of the liberals 
and the Social Democratic 
Party after the next election, 
bin Dr David Owen, leader of 
foe SDP, said that if the two 
Alliance parties merge they 
may have to do it without 

Dr Owen, asked in an 
interview with The Times 
yesterday about his intentions 
after the election, said: “All I 
know is that if I am elected 
and foe SDP continues to exist 
then I am staying on. If it 
changes its status, if it decides 
to become an Alliance party, 
then HI need to think that

Mr Steel said yesterday in 

an article in foe new Liberal 
magazine Radical Quarterly. 
“I believe it almost inevitable 
that this unity will grow before 
too long into formal union 
between our parties. That is 
my personal preference." 

The pressure for a merger 
has come from Alliance 
supporters working together 
in local government and from 
party professionals. 

Mr Paddy Ashdown, Lib- 
eral MP for Yeovil, yesterday 
called on Mr Steel and Dr 
Owen to decide between 
themselves and let one take

Mr Wilson said an opinion 
poll last week suggested that 
42 per cent of Scots would 
• vote SNP if they thought the 
party could win more seats. 
"Credibility is the key and 
that is achievable only by 
organization, publicity and 
winning elections." 

The party is convinced that 
it is set for a revival reminis- 
cent of the 1970s when ithada 
dozen ' MPs ‘ and Scottish 
devolution was at the top of 
the political agenda. 

Opinion polls suggest a 
volatile mood among Scottish 
votere but although nearly a 
third are said to favour home 
rule, support for the SNP is 
only about 15 per cent, the 
same level as for the Conser- 
vatives in Scotland, while 
Labour commands between 
47 and 49 per cent of the vote.

The conference did not 
discuss the Stalker affair in 
detail but officers were told 
that foe Home Office had 
asked all interested groups, 
ranging from foe country’s 
local authorities to senior 
police officers, to give the 
Home Secretary their views 
on issues which have arisen. 

Those centre on whether the 
Police Complaints Authority

It was difficult yesterday to 
get local people to talk freely: 
journalists are not much liked 
or trusted in St Paul's, which 
may explain why several were 
attacked during the latest 

problems including a family

discrimination, drug abuse, 
poor education opportunity, 
badly designed housing and 
political extremism. 

Such acute difficulties 
contributed to a dangerous

Smoke hoods on blaze

Smoke hoods would have 
saved the lives of many of the 
55 victims of the Manchester 
air disaster, the inquest was 
told yesterday. 

It was told also that recom-

provision of hoods on pas-

in the near future.

A further 26 victims died 
through breathing in the toxic 
fumes and smoke that filled 
the cabin and the remaining 
20 succumbed to a combina-

On the fifth day of the 
inquest in Manchester, Wing 
Commander Tan Hill, a senior 
RAF pathologist, told the jury 
that be regarded the accident 
as “wholly survivable".

The Rnbber and Plastics 
Research Association and the 
Airline Users' Committee are 
working to improve the design 
of existing hoods, which cost 
about £30 each. 

• According to the authority, 
the main difficulty with the 
hoods is teat they can impede 
communication; coukl delay 
evacuation of an aircraft while 
people ’ put them on; do not 


protect against

In their favour is the fiut 
that they coaid extend survival 
time; coald prevent panic set- 
ting in; and, as long they do not 
steam up, extend vision. 

The authority said last night 
that investigations about air- 
lines carrying the hoods, 
which can be folded for under- 
seat stowage, came as a direct 
result of the Manchester

difficulties in escaping. 

Wing Commander H31 also 
spoke of the rapid rise hi 
temperature that would have 
been experienced made the 
plane as the flames from the 
burning port engine pene- 
trated the cabin. 

Hesaid tests had shown that 
temperatures could rise in 
such accidents to more than 
1 ,000 D C after two min utes and 
that flames would travel along 
the inride of the fuselage at a 
rale of 68ft per minute. The 
pain threshold for h uman 
beings is 45°C. 

He said that although a 
person could spend several 
hours undergoing tem- 
peratures of 44°C, by the time 
it had risen to 70°C it could be 
tolerated for less than a sec- 

The inquest was told yes- 
terday that nine of the victims 
died from the effects of the 
heat; four from carbon

nine from a combination of

remaining 20 from a mixture 
of fumes and fire. 

There was also further ev- 
idence about the water hy- 
drants at the airport that were 
found to be dry when firemen 
fighting the blaze attemped to 
refill their machines. 

Mr John Edees, the head of 
engineering at the airport, said 
that at the lime of the accident

pay deal 

By David Sapsted 

Mr Kenneth Baker, the 
Secretary of State for Educa- 
tion, gave iacit approval yes- 
terday to the provisional pay 
and conditions deal struck by 
teachers and local authority 

But he was adamant that the 
Government would not hand 
education chiefs an open 
cheque to avoid a repetition of 
the dispute that caused disrup- 
tion in the classroom during 
the last school year. 

He told a meeting with the 
employers' negotiators in 
London that he was keen to 
maintain talks between educa- 
tion authorities and teaching 
unions, but reserved the 
Government's position on 
any final deal 
Although leaders from the 
Association of Metropolitan 
Authorities and the Associ- 
ation of County Councils left 
the meeting declaring them- 
selves to be “heartened” by 
Mr Baker’s attitude, it was 
clear that several big sticking 
points remained. 

The main problem, arising 
from the formula arrived at in 
talks arranged by Acas in 
Coventry last July, remains 
how much the Government 
will contribute to the five- 
year, £2.9 billion agreement 
Mr John Pearman, the 
Association of Metropolitan 
Authority's education chair- 
man who headed yesterday's 
deputation, said that the 
employers want the Govern- 
ment to find about £1.7 

Rejection of the Coventry 
agreement would renew the 
threat of industrial disruption 
Other problems could arise 
from teachers* demands over 
bow long they should be 
expected to cover for an 
absent colleague. Tradition- 
ally, cover has been for a 
period of three days. 

But, under the interim 
agreement, tee employers con- 
ceded that this should be for 
only one day before staff start 
receiving extra pay. 

According to the depart- 
ment. that could land the 
Government with an addi- 
tional £150 million bill each 

Mr Baker said that tee 
Government’s £L25 billion 
offer of extra cash still stood. 
Whether or not there is any 

more on the table will depend 
on the details of the final 
agreement struck between the 
two sides in the Acas talks, he 

Under the Coventry agree- 
ment, due to come into effect 
at tee start of ’1987, new 
arrangements were pro vision- 
ally agreed in such areas as 
duties, working time, perfor- 
mance appraisal andnegotial- 
ing machinery, as well as 
selling new pay scales, includ- 
ing a £14.500 ceiling for 
classroom teaching. 

Parents’ say oyer 

By Sheila Gann, Political Staff 
The Government is prepar- who strongly 
ing to yield to pressure from 
Conservative “moral 


right” to give parents the right 
to excuse children from sex 
education lessons. 

Education ministers have 
foiled to persuade right-wing 
backbenchers to give up the 
campaign to grant such rights 
to parents who. are worried 
about the way sex and per- 
sonal relationships are taught 

The MPs had warned the 
Government that they would 
consider wrecking the whole 
sex education clause in the 
Education Bill on tee first day 
of tee MPs’ return to the 
Commons, if it did not grant 
that concession. 

The backbenchers' amend- 
ment to the clause, supported 
by the Conservative Family 
Campaign, was originally ta- 
bled by Mr Peter Bruinvels, 
MP for Leicester East. 

It bad the tee support of 67 
other Conservative MPs, 
including two vice-chairmen 
of the 1922 Committee, Sir 
Paul Bryan and Sir Marcus 

It states: “It shall be the 
right of any parent to with- 
draw his child from any sex 
education to which that parent 

It has the backing of nearly 
100 Conservative MPs: 
Among teem are believed to 
be Dr Rhodes Boyson, the 
newly appointed Minister of 
State at the Department of the 
Environment, and four other 

Signs of a government 
climbdown came after Mr 
Christopher Patten, a “wet" 

opposed the 
amendment, was replaced by 
Mrs Angela Rumbold, Min- 
ister of State at the Depart- 
ment of Education , and 
Science, in this week's re- 
shuffle. Mrs Rumbold is 
known to be sympathetic to 
the Conservative Family 

The campaign succeeded in 
getting peers to add a sex 
education clause to the Bill, 
which gives parents more say 
in tee running of schools. The 
clause requires that schools 
“take such steps as are reason- 
ably practicable to ensure that 
_ sex education is given ~ in 
such a manner as to encourage 
those pupils to have due 
regard to moral consid- 
erations and the value of 
family life”. 

Government ministers were 
known to have doubts about 
practical implications of the 
clause. It was passed with a 
majority of only one vote 
during the committee stage. 

In a letter to Mr Kenneth 
Baker. Secretary of State for 
Education and Science, Mr 
Bruinvels argued: “I have 
received hundreds ofletters of 
support from parents express- 
ing their concern teat their 
children may be subjected to 
controversial side issues in sex 
education, such as homo- 
sexuality without the danger 
of Aids; ‘one does not need to 
get married to have children'; 
sexual promiscuity and de- 
viant sex lessons. 

“Children are very im- 
pressionable at this tender age 
and I really believe they wul 
be endangered morally.” 

‘Fewer air 
in Europe’ 

By Trndi McIntosh 

Airlines in Europe are likely 
to carry one million fewer 
passengers on schedoled 
flights tills year, according to 
the latest forecast by the 
Association of European 

Mr Marcel' Pfsters, the 
association's deputy secretary- 
general, said in Brussels yes- 
terday teat tee weaker US 
detfar and fears about terror- 
appeared the main 
reasons fin ft^Apntam in 
passenger traffic this year. 

The association's forecast- 
ing sub-committee Is prepar- 
ing a report on the downturn 
and tee airlines most affected. 

The association's 20 mem- 
bers, which indnde British 
Airways and British Caledo- 
nian, cany 95 per cent of all 
scheduled passengers 
mghont Europe. Originally 
it had forecast a 52 per cent 
growth in passenger traffic 
this year, to 43.5 mu lion. 

Mr Pisters said that powte 
was unlikely to exceed 3 per 
cent. Many factors, including 
fears about nuclear fall-out 
from Chernobyl fast April, 
had discouraged people from 

A British Caledonian 
spokesman said in London 
yesterdaythat Norte Atlantic 
bookings were down by 30 per 
cent in June, after the Ameri- 
can air raids over Libya, but 
had since picked up and were 
now within 10 per cent of last 
year’s bookings. 

A British Airways spokes- 
man agreed that the worst of 
the post-Libyan impact was 

“Traffic has picked op, and 
in tee last week we carried 
403,685 passengers, 6 per cent 
more than for the same period

• Air UK is to begot its 
Stansted-Frankfnrt sendee on

Alcohol abuse 

Water with lunch advised 

Businessmen should stop 
drinking wine at lunchtime 
and him to mineral water 
instead, in an effort to stem 
the problem of alcohol abuse 
which is costing tee country 
£1.5 billion a year, Mr Nor- 
man Fowler said yesterday. 

Speaking at a conference on 
Alcohol and Drug Abuse in 
Industry, the Secretary of 
State for Social-Services said 
that employers' own policies 
could' influence people's 
drinking at work. 

“Does tee expense account 
lunch need to include a bottle 
of wine? Is a crate of whisky 
the best Christmas present 
you can give a client?,” Mr 
Fowler asked . 

Research at York Univer- 
sity had shown that £600 
million was lost to industry 
every year because of alcohol- 
related sickness absence alone. 
Alcohol abuse in young people 
was increasing and starting at 
an earlier age, he said. 

An estimated 750.000 peo- 
ple had drink problems which 
affected themselves, their 
family and society in general, 
and people were now drinking 
nearly double the amount they 
drank in the 1960s, Mr Fowler 

By Jill Sherman 

He urged employers to look 
at a range of factors which 
could affect the health and 
welfare of their staff, including 
information on preventive 
screening and healthy 

But he admitted that the 
lead should come from the 
health service. The Govern- 
ment had asked the Health 
Education’ Council, tee Na- 
tional Health Service Training 
Authority and Alcohol Con- 
cern to produce model policies 
which could Ire negotiated by 
health authorities and trade 
unions locally. 

The Government'. ' hoped 
also to hold a national con- 
ference on alcohol abuse 
within tee next two months, 
Mr Fowler said. 

The misuse of drugs was a 
growing problem also in the 
workplace, but less easy to 
recognize, he said. One study 
in North-west England had 
shown that 25 percent of drug 
users seen by a voluntary 
agency were in employment 

“It is simply not the case 
that drug users are all readily 
identifiable ‘dropouts'. Work- 
place policies now need to 
cover a wide range of sub- 
stance abuse." 

• Increased stress, together 
with an increased availability 
of alcohol, had resulted in 
growing alcoholism in youn- 
ger women. Dr John Gayford. 
consultant psychiatrist at 
Warlingham Park Hospital, 
Surrey, said yesterday. 

There was now one female 
alcoholic to every male alco- 
holic under the age of 30. 
Studies on all age groups 
showed a 3-2 ratio of men to 
women alcoholics. Ten years 
ago that ratio was 5-1 , he said. 

. “Young girts with two or 
three boyfriends can drink free 
for six nights a week and still 
have a night off to wash their 
hair," Dr Gayford said. 

As women roamed and had 
families the problem would 
often present itself in ne- 
glected children, uncooked 
evening meals and housekeep- 
ing money running out. After 
a few years that could lead to 
marital difficulties and 

But if the marriage broke up 
a heavy-drinking woman was 
more likely to many another 
heavy-drinking male in both 
her second and third mar- 
riages, Dr Gayford said.

Farmer kept treasure 
explosives in his shed 

Leaders of an expedition to 
salvage gokl and treasure from 
a shipwreck were described as 
a “bunch of buccaneers” in a 
court yesterday. 

They had used explosives 
on the remains of the sailing 
ship Royal Charter which 
sank off the Anglesey coast 
more than a century ago when 
returning from Australia

At previous courts the lead- 
er of the expedition, Joseph 
McCormack, and Bernard 
McDonald, an explosives 
expertboth of Liverpool, bad 
been fined £500 each for 
allowing explosives to be 
stored there. 

Mr Parry said that Roberts 
was owed £6,000 by Best

vices he had provided and a

because he had decided it

Promise to make 1987 a year of negotiations 

Israel and Egypt agree 
to revive stalled peace 
process for Middle East 



Alexandria (Renter) - Israel 
and Egypt ended their first 
sura nut in five years yesterday 
with a pledge to revive the 
stalled Middle East 
process and to mate 1987 “a 
year of negotiations fin- 

Mr Shimon Peres, Hie Is- 
raeli Prune Minister, and 
President Mubarak of 
held about six hours of l 
more than half the time 
without aides - at a sprawling 
former royal palace j utting 
into the Mediterran ean 

They agreed to concentrate 
their efforts on reviving the 
peace process, according to a 
joint statement issued shortly 
before Mr Peres boarded a 
helicopter on his way home. 

“They declare 1987 as a 
year of negotiations for 
peace," the statement said. 
“They call upon all parties 
concerned to dedicate this 
year to an intensive effort to 
achieve the common and 
noble objective of a just, 
lasting and comprehensive 

Officials said the question 
of Palestinian representation 
was the main issue on which 
the two leaders failed to reach 
agreement during the two-day 

Both men said they had 
been hampered tv shortage of 
time. Mr Mubarak said: “In 
24 hours, we cannot achieve a 
solution to the problem.” 

Mr Peres said: “The only 
common enemy we have 
discovered is more time.” 

In the statement, they ech- 
oed language from the 1978 
US-brokered Camp David Ac- 
cords which led to the 1979 
peace treaty and made Egypt 
the only Arab country to have 
diplomatic relations with 

The two leaden, with other 
concerned parties, “win con- 
tinue their efforts towards a 
solution of the Palestinian 

problem in an its aspects 

it said. 

Mr Peres said Mr Mubarak 
bad made clear bis relations 
with King Husain of Jordan 
were good “and there is an 
nndeistanding that we will co- 
ordinate with King Husain a 
joint position.” 

An aide to Mr Peres said a 
sticking point was Egypt’s 
request for endorsement or 
mention of the February i 985 
accord between Jordan and 
the Palestine liberation Or- 
ganization (PLO) on a joint 
approach to peace talks. 

The accord has been on ice 
this year and Mr Mubarak has 
tried to reconcile differences 
between King Husain and Mr 
Yassir Arafat, the PLO leader. 

Mr Arafat has refused to* 
accept United Nations resolu- 
tions implicitly recognising 
Israel's right to exist unless the 
Jewish state also acknowl- 
edges a Palestinian right to 
sdfdeierm ination. 

Egyptian sources said Mr 
Mubarak sent the PLO chiefa 
letter this week voicing con- 
cern at a statement by three 

Palestinian groups, including 
his Fatah organization, freez- 
ing the accord. 

Mr Avraham Tamir, head 
of Mr Pferes’ office, said Israel 
could not endorse self- 
determination but wanted to 
find a substitute formula. 

Mr Peres and Mr Mubarak 
both said they had agreed on 
the idea of a preparatory 
committee to do the ground- 
work for an international 
Middle East peace conference. 

But the exact formula they 
had in mind was unclear. 

Mr Peres said: “The next 
step is a peace conference in 
which we really try to agree on 
solutions — ” 

He said he meant the parties 
involved in the Middle East 
conflict should attend, with 
Egypt trying to bring in Jordan 
— although “only the Syrians 
can bring in Syria”. 

But Mr Ahmed Esmat 
Abdel-Maguid. the Egyptian 
Foreign Minister, said that in 
endorsing the idea of a 
prepara tory committee, they 
meant a Franco-Soviet pro- 
posal made two months ago 
by President Mitterrand of 
nance and Mr Mikhail 
Gorbachov, the Soviet leader. 

This idea, proposed by Mr 
Gorbachov and later rejected 
by the United States, envis- 
aged preparatory talks be- 
tween the five permanent 
members of the UN Security 
Council, the US, the Soviet 
Union, Britain, China and

Peres confirms conference go-ahead 

From Dadd Bernstein, Jerusalem 

The Israeli Prime Minister, 
Mr Shimon Peres, yesterday 
confirmed that he and Egypt’s 
President Mubarak had ag- 
reed to set up a preparatory 
committee that will pave the 
way for an international Mid- 
dle East peace conference. 

Speaking to reporters at the 
airport on his return from his 
summit meeting with Mr 
Mubarak in Alexandria, Mr 
Peres said he did not expect 
this to create any difficulties 
with his Likud coalition 

Likud has long made it clear 
that it is not enthusiastic 
about such a conference, and 
its leaders stressed on the eve 
of Mr Perez’s departure for 
Alxandria that any further 
movement in the peace pro- 
cess could only be within the 

framework of the Camp Da- 
vid agreement with Egypt. 

“The Government con- 
sented to an international 
conference back m 1973, and 
this was never changed", Mr 
Peres said, pointing out that 
Government decisions, unless 
formally rescinded, are bind- 
ing on successive govern- 

“So the mandate is there” 
he continued, adding that the 
Knesset had in feet approved 
the idea of an international 
conference to accompany, but 
not to replace, bilateral peace 
talks as recently as a year ago. 
when he returned from 
addressing the UN General 
Assembly in New York. . 

He said there had been 
agreement “on most issues” 
but that it had been decided to 
include in the communique 

only those points* on which 
they had been able to arrive at 
a dear and agreed formul- 

The most problematical 
question was that of the 
Palestinians, Mr Feres con- 
ceded. but indicated that he 
and Mr Mubarak agreed that 
the problem of Palestinian 
representation m any future 
peace talks was one to be 
worked out, in the first in- 
stance, between the Palestin- 
ians and King Husain 

In all. Mr Peres appeared 
satisfied that he had laid the 
ground for a continuation ofj 
the peace process after, he 
hands over the premfershiplo 
the Likud's Mr Yitzhak 
Shamir next month* with both 
Israel and Egypt formally 
committed to 1987 as “the 
year of peace”. 

Leaders emphasize hope for peace 

Alexandria (Reuter) — This 
is the text of a statement 
issued is English at the end of 
the summit meeting between 
President Mubarak of Egypt 
and Mr Shimon Peres, the 
Israeli Prime Minister: 

• The meetings between Pre- 
sident Mubarak and Prime 
Minister Shimon Peres in Al- 
exandria on September 11 and 
12 mark a new era in bilateral 
relations between Egypt and 
Israel as well as in the search 
for a just and comprehensive 
peace in the Middle East. 

• The signing of 'the compro- 
mis of Taba arbitration re- 
affirmed the importance of ne- 
gotiation as a means for sett- 
ling international disputes. 

away from the spirit of con- 
frontation and violence. It. 
constitutes a promising model 
to be followed and boflt upon. 
The Egyptian-Israeti peace 
treaty reflects their desire to 
proceed jointly and simultane- 
ously towards enforcing the 
structure of peace between the 
two peoples and achieving a 
comprehensive peace in the 
region that would bring abont 

a peaceful settlement of the 
Arab-Israeli conflict, includ- 
ing resolution of the Palestin- 
ian problem in all its aspects. 
• President Mubarak and 
Prime Minister Peres firmly 
believe that having referred 
the Taba issue to arbitration, 
the two countries should now 
concentrate their efforts on 

reviving the comprehensive 
peace process. 

• They viewed with great con- 
cern the effect of the stale- 
mate on the process. 

• They declare 1987 as a year 

of negotiations for peace. They 

call upon all parties concerned 
to dedicate this year to an 
Intensive effort to achieve the 
common and noble objective of 
a just, lasting and comprehen- 
sive peace. 

• President Mubarak and 
Prime Minister Peres, to- 
gether with other concerned 
parties, wifl continue then-

the Palestinian problem in all 
its aspects and the establish-

on Beirut 

From Robert Fisk 

The kidnappers of west 
Beirut struck again yesterday 
at one of the very few 
Westerners still living in the* 
Muslim sector of the city. 

For the second time in four 
days, the victim was an 
American, a financial admin- 
istrator at the American 
University, aged 56, who was 
abducted as he made the 
short comparatively safe 
journey on foot from the door 
of his campus home to one of 
the college halls. 

Mr Joseph Cidppio, who is 
the university's acting comp- 
troller. had just said goodbye 
to his wife. Ilham, aged 25, 
whom he married two years 
ago. and stepped out of the 
door of his block of flatswhen 
the four gunmen pounced on 
him. They had waited all night 
behind a clump oi^bushes and 
dragged- him through the uni- 
versity’s small seafront gate- 
way, beating him over the 
head with a pistol butt * 

Mr Cidppio. wbo is of 
Italian origin and comes from 
Valley Forge. Pennsylvania, 
was seen being pushed into the 
boot of a car waiting on the 
roadway outside while a uni- 
versity porter who caught 
sight of the kidnappers was 
held at gunpoint 
It was only on Tuesday that 
Mr Rank Reed, an American 
teacher, was kidnapped near 
the Syrian Army's intelligence 
headquarters in west Beirut 
and this second kidnapping of 
a US citizen — as well as a 
Lebanese businessman ab- 
ducted three days ago - is 
causing the gravest embarrass- 
ment to the Syrian authorities 
It is probably intended that 
it should. But there is also a 
growing suspicion in Beirut 
that the Americans may have 
been kidnapped to prevent 
any American reprisals m 
Lebanon for the murders 
aboard the Pan Am Jumbo jet 
at Karachi Airport. . 

The American University 
in Beirut is supposed to be 
■well-guarded. Armed’ mem- 
bers of the Lebanese Gendar- 
merie stand at its two main 
gates and university porters 
. are instructed to check the id- 
enutiesof all visitors. But they 
rarely do so. Nor do they 
search those entering the cam- 
pus for weapons. 

Pretoria admits to 
black youth camps 

From Michael Hornsby Johannesburg 

The existence of a number 
of special camps where young 
blades detainkl under the 
state of emergency are sent 
after their release to be pre- 
pared for “re-entry into their 
communities” was confirmed 
yesterday by the Government 

Responding to allegations 
by the opposition Progressive 
Federal Party (PFP), Mr Sam 
De Beer, the Deputy Minister 
of Education and Develop- 
ment Aid. said that there was 
nothing sinister about the 
camps, which have been pre- 
sented in the press here as 
smacking of communist-style 
“re-education” centres. 

Attendance at them was 
voluntary and minors were 
admitted only with the written 
permission of their parents, 
Mr De Beer claimed. The 
courses contained “no politi- 
cal component”, were planned 
and presented with the help of 
“private sector expertise” and 
were an extension of youth 
.training schemes .his depart- 
ment had been running for 

. The existence of the camps, 
or “youth centres” as the 
Government prefers to call 
them, was first disdosed by 
Mr Neil Ross, who runs the 
PFFs Missing Persons’ Bu- 
reau, which tries to keep trade 
of the number of people 
detained under the emer- 
gency, now estimated at be- 
tween 12,000 and 17,000. 

Mr Ross said yesterday that 
Mr De Beer had foiled to say 

where the camps were located, 
to give the number of blacks 
attending them, or to specify 
the private agency helping to 
ran them. He had als o not 
responded to the PFFs re- 
quest to visit them. 

Former detainees inter- 
viewed by newspapers here 
said they were given the 
choice or going to the camps 
or remaining in jail. Accord- 
ing to Mr Ross, there is 
evidence that detainees had 
been coerced into signing 
documents committing them 
to the camps. 

But it also appears that 
inmates can leave the camps if 
they wish. Some of those 
interviewed said they had left 
after periods of one to three 
days. They said they were 
taken to the main town in 
their home district, and then 
given money for onward 

Government officials say 
there are about five or six of 
the camps. Mr Ross said that 
the PFP had established the 
location of four. Two' of them 
were in the Orange Free State, 
one in the Eastern Cape and 
one in Natal. 

Among the courses offered 
at the camps, according to the 
officials, are study techniques, 
leadership training, voca- 
tional guidance and sport 
Some of the inmates ques- 
tioned by the press say the 
lectures at the camps amount- 
ed to an extension of police 

South Africa’s hidden 
unemployment toll 

From Michael Hornsby, Johannesburg 

The total number of blades 
unemployed in South Africa 
could be as high as six million, 
which would account for 25 
per cent of the black popula- 
tion and nearly 50 per cent of 
its economically active el- 

This estimate, contained in 
a paper by two researchers at 
the University of the Wii- 
watersrand, is about 12 times 
as high the latest official 
estimate of 533,000 blacks 
without jobs. And the 
researchers said their figure 
was a conservative one. 

It has long been accepted 
outside government that of- 
ficial figures on black un- 

employment are ludicrously 
low. This is mainly because 
only a minority of jobless 
blacks enjoy any form off 
unemployment benefit.

tones down

doned their call for total US 
I disinvestment, a measure for 
more sweeping than the lim- 
ited sanctions proposed by the 
Senate. Instead, they agreed to 
support die Senate measures, 
which include a ban on new 
US business Investment in 
South Africa, an end to some 
US imports of Sooth African 
steel and other products, and a 
ban on bunting rights in the 
US by South African Airways. 

The House move is a set- 
back to President Reagan, w ho 
opposes punitive sanctions but 
is reluctant to veto a Bill on 
measures that have such wide- 
spread support h> both parties. 

President Reagan had

Solidarity jubilant over tcI j s

From Roger Boyes 

The leaders of the outlawed 
Solidarity union, including 
Mr Lech Walesa, the Nobd 
laureate, were jubilant yes- 
terday about the decision by 
Polish authorities to free all 
political prisoners before

amnesty, the authorities 
wontd keep back those viewed 
as most dangerous including 
Mr Bujak; Mr Tadeusz 
Jedynak and Mr Czeslaw

trying to overthrow the com- 
munist system. 

Mr Walesa, for one. be-

would also implicate workers

Certainly some of the re-

ceremonial stops, culminating 
in Father Greer's procession 
to St Stephen's Cathedral in 

The event has been over- 
shadowed by a bitter con- 
troversy surrounding the new 
Austrian Primate’s views. 

Father Groer, a Benedictine 
monk, was considered, an 
unlikely candidate to succeed 
Cardinal Franz Konig when 
the Cardinal retired earlier 
this summer. 

Cardinal Konig is consid- 
ered something of an intellec- 
tual heavyweight in Austria, 
but his views were seen as 
unhappily "progressive" in 
some quarters of the Vatican. 

The Cardinal's enthusiasm 
for peace seminars and de- 
bates in the imposing 
Archbishop's Palace in Vi- 
enna is known to have not 
always met with Vatican 
appro vaL 

Not surprisingly then, 
though to the anger of many 
Catholics who supported 
Cardinal Konig, the Pope 
ignored the Cardinal’s prote- 
ges and chose a simple monk 
who. with no intellectual 
pretensions, can be relied 
upon to defend the Catholic 
faith tooth and nail in what is 
Rome's bulwark against East- 
ern Europe. 

The appointment has not 
endeared Rome to young Aus- 
trian Catholics, and already 
the Austrian press has por- 
trayed Father Groer as a

numbers of reserved tickets 
for tomorrow's spectacle,

earlier this month. 

The seven, including the 
chairman, Mr Karel Srp, were 
arrested on charges of embez- 
zling members' funds. 

In an open letter to the 
President Husak, five of the 
arrested men’s wives pro- 
tested their innocence saying 
that the men were not “crooks 
but concerned with the public 

The decision to crack down 
on the Jazz Section and its 
iffgdSng figures cannot have 
been taken lightly. Over the 
last few months, the Govern- 
ment has noticeably relaxed 
some of its restrictions on 
Charter 77 activists and at the 
end of June, in an unprece- 
dented move, permitted a pop 
festival in Prague known as 
Rock Fest 86 .

Deng is no longer ruling 

The debate between politi- 
cal conservatives, spear- 
headed by Mr Chen Yun, 

In the context of contem- 
porary China, political reform 
means streamlining the 
bureaucracy, strengthening 
the National People's Con- 

architect of China's socialist gress and defining the specific 

economy, and Mr Deng 
Liqun, the former propaganda 
chief who instigated the “anti- 
spiritual pollution campaign” 
of 1983, and Mr Deng and his 
supporters, is expected to

session of the Chinese Com- 
munist Party’s 12th Central 
Committee, scheduled for the 
second half of this month. 

The public form of the 

roles of the Government and 
the party in society. 

In a 1980 speech recently 
republished, Mr Deng listed 
bureaucracy, concentration of 
power, paternalism, life tenure 
of office and officials' privi- 
leges among China's most 
serious problems. 

The outcome of the debate 
may determine whether party 
officials or managers run 

The issue of Mr Deng's 
successor is potentially more 
explosive than pohiical re- 
form. Despite his reluctance 
to build a Mao Tsc Tung-style 
personality cult around him- 
self. Mr Deng's presence and 
words continue to dominate 
the political debate in the 
People's Republic. 

And despite his attempts 
last September to elevate 
younger, university-trained 
technocrats to positions of 
influence within the party, Mr 
Deng still has not found a 
successor who shares his cha- 
risma and ability to unite the

Hawke avoids rebuke on uranium 

From Stephen Taylor, 

Mr Bob Hawke, Australia's 
Prime Minister, feeing rebel- 
lion over his decision to fly in 
the face of Labor Party policy 
by resuming uranium sties to 
France! escaped lightly from a 
meeting of the National Exec- 
utive here yesterday. 

The left-wing of the exec- 
utive failed to mount an 
expected challenge to the de- 
rision, and even a motion to 
rebuke Mr Hawke for defying 
ALP conference policy was 
toned down. 

A five-hour meeting of the 
executive ended with a resolu- 
tion expressing no more than 

Everest foray with two umbrellas and a spoon 

relatively mild “regret" at the 

Resuming contracted ura- 
nium sales to France, agreed 
by the Cabinet as pan of last 
month's austerity Budget, will 
earn Australia's beleagured 
economy $Aus 66 million 
(£27.5 million) this year. 

However, as one of the most 
emotive of all Labor issues, 
the derision opened up old 
divisions in the party, which 
were only deepened when Mr 
Hawke announced defiantly 
this week that he would not be 
dictated to by the executive. 

There were understood to 
have been sharp exchanges 
yesterday between Mr Hawke 
and left-wingers on the 


committee, but the motion to 
rebuke him was defeated by 16 
votes to 12 . and he left the 
meeting evidently relieved. 

He appreciated, he said, the 
party’s “deeply felt" concern 
about uranium sales, and that 
a channel for debate between 
the Government and party 
had been established. 

Although emerging appar- 
ently unscathed. Mr Hawke's 
demeanour under pressure in

and encouraged opponents.

clared, tapping his head,“the

out onto toe ridge to reach

This ft: good progress ahead

mix-op at the start which left 
only one of the first group 00

he was supported by three

the gap 

By the year 2003, if the University 
or Adelaide's Centre for Environ- 
mental Studies is proved correct, 
women will be as fast as men in 
the 1.500 metres. The conclusion 
is based on the foci that, although 
all athletic performances are 
improving, women are improving 
at a dramatically faster rate than 
men. In 1936. the women's record 
for the 1.500 metres was 20 per 
cent slower than the men's: now 
the gap is only 10 per cent. In the 
longer events, women will in 
theory catch men even sooner. 
19^8 is postulated for the 5.000 
and 10.000 metres. 

But, says Or Craig Sharp, a 
sports scientist at Birmingham 
University, the argument is based 
on a mathematical fallacy. “The 
reason for women's improve- 
ments are sociological, not 
physiological." he said. “More 
and more women are coming into 
sport. The situation is similar to 
that in men's athletics a hundred 
years ago." What will happen, he 
says, is that women's records will 
be broken by smaller and smaller 
margins, until the improvement 
level settles at around 8 per cent 
behind the men. 

Where women excel, he added, 
is in events involving balance, 
endurance and extremes of heat, 
cold and altitude. Dr Sharp said 
that if there were a race that 
involved running 1,500 metres 
along a balance beam, then swim-, 
ming the Channel, roller skating 
across France, swimming the 
Mediterranean, running across the 
Sahara, and finally being airlifted 
out to ran the Himalayas the long 
way - why. men would be beaten 
out of sight.

Thursday's sudden collapse on the

saw the Dow Jones Industrial 
Average fail. 86 points, causes fear 
and trembling throughout the 
world that it may be the signal of a

simplistic. But it would be folly for 
anyone, in particular President 
Reagan and his administration, to 
ignore the message of the markets. 

The crux is the huge ami 
continuing American trade deficit 
- the once all too familiar British 
problem of imports vastly exceed- 
ing exports. The US largely covers 
this deficit by borrowing from the 
rest of the world, but the seem- 
ingly insatiable American appetite 
for borrowed money is meeting 
with opposition from the world's 
two most affluent creditors. West 
Germany and Japan. US govern- 
ment paper is no longer regarded 
as quite the Triple A investment 
which outwardly it is, and if 
Washington wants to stuff foreign 
lenders with bigger and bigger 
amounts of Unde Sam's debt, 
then the likelihood is that the US 
will have to pay more. In other 
words, interest rates will have to 
be increased. 

The real crisis, which Wall 
Street has begun to perceive, is 
that the US might find itself 
unable to borrow the money ft. 
needs to pay its way. It might 
sound inconceivable that the rich- 
est nation on earth, endowed with 
vast material resources, inno- 
vative skills, energy, talent and 
political stability, would ever fold 
itself in a suite akin to a Third 
World debtor. But it is not 
impossible. The disturbing ques- 
tion is: “How would the US react 
if forced into a tight financial 
corner?” The answer that would 
send cold shivers down spines 
everywhere is. “by retreating into 

Again. I do not believe the 
situation would deteriorate so far. 
It would be an act of hara kiri on 
the part of the Japanese and West 
Germans if they allowed it to 
happen. But it is as well to be clear 
about the figures involved. Clay- 
ton Yeutter. the US Trade Repre- 
sentative. rang the bell in early

US trade deficit is now running at 
an annual rate of $200 billion. 
This, he added, “is politically and. 

Three years ago. with David Steel 
suffering post-election depression 
and the SDP reduced to six MPS, 
il was only David Owen's relent- 
less drive and astonishing work 
rate which saved his party from 
becoming little more than a 
memory around a few London 
dining tables. More than any other 
political leader in recent times, 
more even than Mrs Thatcher, he 
dominates his party, at times 
■seeming to make up its policy as 
he goes along. But as the most " 
vital round of party conferences 
since 1982 opens today in Harro- 
gate. Owen is both the SDFs 
inspiration and the Alliance's 

The okl parties, with settled 
profiles and established roles, 
steam on remorselessly. The SDP 
and the Alliance have their roots 
dug up every year to see how they 
are growing. And with the scrutiny 
even more intense in election year 
Owen has not hesitated to pul the 
Alliance under stress. Clarity and 
Thatcher style conviction matters 
more to him than unity. 

It will be a relief to his Liberal 
partners then that as the SDP 
conference opens Owen is in 
relaxed, not to say diminuendo 
mood. For once he is not out for 

When the SDP came into 
existence it was intended to 
marginalize and gradually replace 
the left-wing Labour Party, as the 
French Communists have been 
marginalized, reaching parts of the 
electorate the Liberals could not 
reach. Bui the party has failed to 
make a breakthrough in working- 
class votes. It has not created a 
corps of followers in the sense that 
the other parties have their foot- 
ball dub supporters. The strategy 
now appears to be no more than 
keeping options open, grabbing 
protest votes from discontented 

Owen denies it vehemently. 
What commentators have never 
appreciated, he says, is that al- 
though the SDFs major figures 
came from Labour the majority of 
those who joined were of no 
previous political affiliation, the 
so-called political virgins. 

The combination of policies 
offered by the SDP comes natu- 
rally to them, those export man- 
agers and hospital consultants. 
They are prepared to pay higher 
taxes, but they are firm believers 
too in a market economy and in 
private enterprise. They back 
industrial relations reforms, but 
they are not union bashers. They 
are neither ideological national- 
izes nor ideological privatize!*. 
They want strong defence policies 
and, as realists and international- 
ists. a strong involvement in the 
European Community. They are 
committed to the NHS but are 
interested in costs savings as well 
as better standards. 

Thai natural combination. 
Owen claims, is “the heartbeat of 
the party" and he warns that he 
will fight every bit as hard for the 
SDFs plan to merge lax and social 
security benefits, a plan which will 
hit the income of anyone earning 
more than £1 7.200 a year, as he is 
doing for what he calls a 
“sensible" policy on defence. 

But can the SDP hope for a 
future if Labour is no longer 
perceived by the middle classes as 
a menace? Has it not fulfilled its 
function for many by forcing 
labour to dean up its act under 
the amiable Neil Kinnock? Win 
not the Alliance's supporters start 
drifting back to Labour? 

"There is a slight danger. But 
that point has not been reached 
vet." says Owen. 

If the election does result in a 
hung parliament, is a referendum 
on the introduction of propor- 
tional representation the basic 
minimum price of Alliance sup- 
port fora minority government?

referendum, though my view is

economically unsustainable". In 
the second quarter of this year, the 
deficit in the US current balance 
of payments, which takes in 
services and other “invisibles” as 
well as trade in goods, reached 
$30.6 billion. To cover such sums, 
the US has to attract funds from 
overseas, and to that end if holds 
regular auctions of US. Treasury 
bonds. ■ 

The US. so far rightly, has 
assumed that the necessary, funds 
will flow to New York .at some- 
thing below exorbitant rates. In- 
deed. since March the Federal 
Reserve, which makes US interest 
rate and credit policy with a fair 
degree of independence from the 
adminstiation, has engineered 
lower rates by cutting 'Its key 
discount rate (equivalent to Bank 
Rate here) no fewer than four 

This easier and cheaper credit 
policy has had two objectives, 
apart from making it cheaper for 
Washington to borrow. It was 
designed to stimulate the Ameri- 
can economy and, taking a leaf out 
of the well-thumbed Labour Party 
economy handbook, it was used as - 
a means of devaluing the dollar. A 
devalued currency, so the theory 
runs, reduces imports by making 
them more expensive and pro- 
motes exports by making them 
cheaper in foreign markets. De- 
valuing the dollar was the Federal 
Reserve's constribution to scaling 
down the trade deficit 

The one important new element 
is that both the West Germans and 
the Japanese have decided to stop 
playing the game according to 
American rules. In the first place, 
they have started to offer high- 
grade loans of their own which 
may seriously rival US Treasuiy 

bonds in the eyes of international 
lenders and thus make it more 
difficult, certainly more expen- 
sive, for the US to finance its 
trading deficits. 

In the second place tire two 
financial superpowers, which are 
also America's main international 
trading rivals -and collectively 
responsible for a large part of the 
US trade deficit, - have ' put up 
barriers of their own to prevent 
the dollar falling as much as the 
Americans would like. They have 
problems of their own and are not 
prepared to cut their’ own interest 
rates, already extremely -low, to 
enable the Americans to go on 
cutting theirs; whenever the dollar 
is pushing down they move into 
the foreign exchange markets and 
support it by buying dollars with 
their own currencies. 

When it comes to dealing in 
mosey, m whatever form, saves 
and speculators, governments and 
agents, are operating in a global 
electronic village. The world is a 
24-hour market place: a spasm in ' 
New York becomes ashudder in 
London, collapse in Tokyo and a 
coronary in Hong Kong. Markets 
also, have the power of self- 
fulfilling prophecy: they can act in 
advance .of. what they sense is 
likely to happen and by their 
behaviour make it happen. 

But each market will have its 
own particular concerns at any 
time. International influences will 
have a greater or lesser impact 
depending on domestic market 
factors. Thus Tokyo, which has 
boomed because Japanese interest 
rates are low and foreign investors 
in their droves are lined by 
Japanese efficiency and compet- 
itiveness into Japanese shares, was 
undoubtedly ripe for a correction. 

Robin Oakley on David Owen’s modified 
priorities as the SDP conference opens 

Where the 



that referendum; are appropriate 
for constitutional change. It is one 
of the options, though I would 
prefer a commitment to legislate. 
It will depend how many MPs we 
are. Coalition politics is about 
negotiation. You can't get every- 
thing in your programme. 

“It would certainly be a brave 
party that forced a second election 
on the basis of refusing a PR 
referendum. I would eqjoy fight- 
ing that election. Those' (like 
MrKinnock) who say they'll refuse 
to talk to us are not living in the 
real world. A lot of Labour people 
for example won't want a third 
term of Mrs Thatcher because of 
the virginal fears of the Labour 
Party of sullying its hands by 
talking to the Alliance, and there 
are a great many Conservatives 
who wouldn't like il cither”. 

Could the Alliance parties be 
split in a hung parliament? No. 
says Owen. He and David Steel 
arc "totally agreed" on that and it 
would not be in cither of their 
interests. "The fashionable view is 
that the unilateralist element of 
the Liberal Party, those who are 
softer on defence, could be 
tempted into coalition by Labour. 
But look at it. Take someone like 
Michael Mcadowcrofi. His main 
opposition in Leeds is Labour." 

The SDP leader agrees that 
David Steel cares a lot less about 
policy than he does. "Bui that's 
not a criticism of David. There are 

few politicians who care as much 
about policy as 1 do." And he does 
have his problems, about working 
with the Liberals. “The charm of 
Liberalism is its stress on in- 
dividuality. It makes for a dif- 
ferent political party than one like 
ours where ' there is a healthy 
respect for individualism but also 
a belief in collective action. 
There's no doubt that as we work 
together we grow together." 

But does that mean that merger, 
which he has fought long to 
postpone, if not to avoid, is 
inevitable in the end? “Either we 
will achieve PR, when it may well 
be that four-party democracy will 
look the natural thing, even' 
though within it I think the 
Alliance partnership between the 
SDP. and the Liberals will. con-, 
tinuc. Or we will not achieve PR 
and there will come a moment as 
we work together when we say, 
this is an Alliance Party'. When 
that Is the commonly accepted 
view on both sides of the Alliance 
then at that stage you form an 
Alliance Party. 

“I am an evolutionist I don't 
believe in forcing these things. 1 
believe there is an. advantage in 
not behaving like the old political 
parties, not apeing them in every 
way. I'm proud of the concept of 
the Alliance. In persuading this

for them to see that two political 

Thursday's drop in New .York 
provided the ideal excuse for- 
having it now. 

In New York itself the immedi- 
ate cause of Thursday’s panic was 
a rumour that the latest figurcs.for 
American retail sales would show 
buoyancy beyond all expectations. 
Tboughouz the day the rumoured 
figure for August went up, as the 
Dow Jones Average went down, 
from 0.5 per cent to a potentially 
catastrophic 4 per cent. This the 
soothsayers and -panic-stricken 
sellers alike -equaled with a fresh 
bout of inflation which 'would 
need higher [merest rates to. cure. 
It does not. require too much 
imagination to see the damage 
dearer money would inflict on an 

economy struggling to get up from 

its knees. : 

The figure for August retail sales 
■was duly published yesterday. It i 
turned out to be 0.8. per cent 1 
higher. Admittedly this is well J 
above the July figure of O.L per ; 
cent, but hardly signalling the end 
of the woilcL The rumour factory, 
however, had done its work. It is 
also worth remembering - that 
much setting (and indeed buying) 
of stocks -in. the US is now 
automatically triggered when cer- 
tain price levels are reached in 
securities futures, which have 
become major vehicles for back- 
ing one’s judgement' whether 
shares are likely to rise or fall in 
the coming months. 

Looking ahead, the big risk is 
that the US, either for external 
deficit or internal inflation rea- 
sons, or both, will be compelled to 
raise interest rates. This would be ' 
unfortunate for Britain where, 
with an inflation rate down to 2.4 
percent; we should confidently be 
expecting interest rates to come 
•down from their ptmishingly high 
10 per cent level." The UK 
economy needs' cheaper credit, 
and the stock market is likely to 
remain at or near its present 
levels. The government needs a 
growing economy and a fair wind 
in the stock market for its 
privatization issues, especially 
British Gas. The proceeds from 
this huge sale are the key to the 
1987 Budget, and the Budget, 
arguably, is the key to the outcome 
otthe next general election. 

The great bull market in equities 
may be over but there wifi still be 
life left in it, provided the US can 
get its act together.

parties can-work together and can 
have differences." 

Nobody is pushing fora merger 
now before an election. But the 
Alliance parties are working closer 
together on the ground and in 
local government Joint open 
selections of candidates by the two 
parties, originally opposed by 
Owen, have taken place in more 
than 70 constituencies. So does his 
mellowing mean that if his na- 
tional committee came. to him 
after iheeiection and said that the 
time had dome for a. referendum 
within the SDP on a merger, then 
Owen- would give it-his-blessing.- 
. “That would depend on whether .1- 
agreed with them." says Owen 
with a grin which implies.thar all 
options remain open. 

The biggest threat to the unity of 
the Alliance has been the row over 
the future t if defence policy, with 
Owen insistent on a replacement 
for Polaris unless there have been 
dramatic changes in the world 
arms situation and with the 
Liberals content to go along with 
the two-party commission report 
suggesting that tfaequestion can be 
determined much nearer the time. 

It has seemed that Owen was 
prepared to put what he perceives 
as the need for -clarity on- this 
question above the heed for unity. 
Would he still be prepared to enter 
- the election, as be has suggested, 
with the SDP and Liberal policies 
on this question at variance? 

It is a question which he does 
not answer directly. “It is very 
unlikely that we will -differ in the 
end. The whole situation is dif- 
ferent to 1962 when the Liberals 
came out against Polaris. We then 
bad confidence in the US nuclear 
guarantee. Politicians have to fight 
elections on a programme that 
makes sense. The SDP and the 
. Liberals have to negotiate and if 
you are negotiating a stance the 
electors don't like then your view . 
is unlikely to prevail." 

■ He is prepared .to let the whole 
issue cool down. Much heartened 
by a visit to France with the 
Alliance team where they dis- 
cussed defence options with the 
French president, prime minister 
and most leading Opposition poli- 
ticians, including such questions 
as the refitting cyde of submarines' 
and technical co-operation, Owen 
now predicts an agreed Alliance 
policy with a new European 
dimension which will prove a - 
pace-setter for the discussion of 
defence options in the other 
parties too. 

It would be ridiculous, he says, 
to gel tied to a policy now. wired, 
the situation is changing -fast “I 
believe that - Reagan will meet 
Gorbachov again. I. don’t think 
that the Daniloff affair win stop 
the summit. I lhink Reagan mil go. 
to Moscow in 1987 and I" believe 
there will be a limned arms 
control agreement." 

But he warns again: "If you 
think I*m going to let Thatcher be 
the only politician to have stood 
firm fora negotiated settlement on 
arms control then people have got 
another think coming. There ain't 
no way I'm giving her that

more seats at the next election. 
Would be fed that the experiment 
was over. 

“How the hell would I know. All

New York 

When the conversation turns to 
literary agents. Scott Meredith's 
name invariably surfaces, not only 
because of his prestigious roster of 
diems but because of his 
controversial practice of charging 
unknown writers $250 a crack to 
read their novels. They receive a 
glitzy brochure, replete with 
photos of hefty cheques made out 
to the agency by Prentice- Hall 
Houghton Mifflin, Conde Nasi 
Walt. Disney Productions and 
other titans, plus the amount of 
the advances paid to such literary 
superstars as Norman -Mailer. 
Arthur C.Clarke. and Carl Sagan, 
all -Meredith diems. -' 

Those anxious to join them on 
Meredith's list must fork over 
$250 to have a novel read, $150 
for a magazine article. $200 for a 
“small" book of poeu-y. and $300 
for a short story in. a foreign 
language. In 1981. says Forbes 
magazine, writers paid $800,000 
in reading fees to the agency. 

Despite Meredith’s legitimate 
argument that a handful of the 
tiiousands of manuscripts his 
readers pore over every year do 
actually make it into print, there 
has been widespread suspicion 
that if you send him a proposal 
hell write back and tell you that it 
sounds publishable, no matter 
how moronic the subject, the 
treatment, or the covering letter. 
This impression was certainly 
strengthened in my mind not long 
ago when I sent the agency two of 
the most inane book proposals I 
couW\ think of, using friends’ 
names and addresses. 

The first was for a. novel called 
No Tears in she Wickiup, about a 
Pawnee Indian who is adopted by 
the remorseful cavaly officer who

Meredith's response, written by 
a staff member but signed by him, - 
came back like a shot assuring me - 
that the agency would be “pleased 
to work with you" on the book. 

A couple of days later I sent off 
the synopsis of a novel called 
Bikers From Borneo. This is how 
it read: “A plane crashes in 
Borneo, and there are only 20 
survivors: two pretty stewardesses 
and 18 Hell's Angels, on their way 
to a reunion in Tokyo with 
buddies from Nam. The Bids, to 
avoid being gang-raped, escape 
Into "the jungle only to" find 
themselves pursued by the same 
headhunters that killed Michael 
- JRockefeller 20 years ago. Will they 
escape from both evil groups? Will - 

they surrender to the bikers 
avoid being eaten by the head- 
hunters? Will they trick the bikers 
and headhunters into killing each- 
othei? The-only way yOu can fino^ 
oul is by sending, for the whole';

Meredith did:' s "Your novels *

Come, pick 

I m ust go down to the fleece again, 
to the lonely grease and the dips. 
It is time I got my hair cut. One of 
the great .liberations of the past 30 
years is that one is no longer 
slopped in the street every 10 days 
or so and told: “Gel your hair cut, 
boy.” Short back and sides has 
ceased to be a badge of respectabSL 
ity. At some time in the Sixties the 
young said to themselves: “I can 
wear my hair the length I want. I 
don’t have to wear a tie (or 
stockings if they were female), and 
spelling and grammar are not the 
most important 1 dements of the 
English language:" Add that was 
when England started going to the 
' dogs, according to the grumpy and 
the envious middle-aged. 

I think length of hair is a trivial 
matter, and spelling not the most 
important dement of English. Bad 
spelling shows sloppiness, like egg- 
stains on one’s tie. if one is 
wearing one. and may be inter- 
preted as evidence of sloppy 
thinking. Get a dictionary, for 
Heaven's sake, dear girl As -for 
hair. there comes a stage when it 
becomes uncomfortable, flops for- 
ward into one's contact lenses, is

appointment with Mr' Chris- '

comes from Cyprus, and be works

fashioned gents’ hairdressers in ' 
Mayfair: the sort of place with 
pictures of the Duke of Edinburgh 
and die Prince of Wales on the 
walls, as not entirely persuasive 
witnesses to the irichotherapetjtic 
powers of Honey and Flowers. 

I met him when I was doing a 
learned sociological probe about 
the cheapest and the most expen- 
sive ways oF gening one’s hair cut 
In London. The cheapest was the 

rmlvtrrhnir srhnnl fr\r irainafr 

hairdressers near Oxford Circus, 
which was free, and where you 
took your chance. The most 
expensive was -Mr Christopher: 
and ho gave, it to me free. So I am 

under an obligation to go bade, 
apart from the fact that he has 
become a friend of mine. He cuts 
the hair of a number of journos, 
including the wavy locks of Ber- 
nard Levin and the unruly thatch 
of William' Rees^Mogg. He gets so 
animated while discussing British 
policy in Cyprus.- that one day 1 
am going to lose an ear.

&veiy ume ttot two or more coliar crossovers lies ool in the the Labour Party as the prin- 
Jnejn.DCTS of the Social Demo- abstractions of deterrence theo- 
cratic Party are gathered to- 
gether in one place, (and this 
, -week in Harrogate win be no 
* exception) their discussions 
take place on two quite sepa- 
■ mte levels- The first concerns 
the merits of whatever issue is 
in question: the Council for 
Social-Democracy meets today 
to debate party policies from 
Polaris to playgroups. The 
second concerns the ever 
ufideiiying issue of whether 
the SDP should merge with the 
Liberal Party. 

The SDP faction-fighting 
over defence policy will domi- 
nate much of the a genda _ 
and the news coverage. The 
dominance is not just because 
a strong defence policy is the 
most important strength that a 
would-be government can of- 
fer- the electorate. Nor is the 
dominance due to the fact that 
4be SDP was founded by a 
quartet which had particularly 
sharp- disagreement with the 
Labour Party over the nuclear 
issue. The defence debate has 
become the most important 
surrogate occasion for the 
argument: to merge or not to 

Consider the following para- 
dox. Mr William Rodgers has 
always been one of the Gang of 
Four’s most prominent voices 
in favour of an independent 
British deterrent Even by SDP 
standards, let alone those of 
bi$ ex-colleagues in the Labour 
Party, he would have been 
labelled as a defence 
“hardliner”. Yet he has taken 
up the cause of the Alliance 
Joint Commission on Defence 
which leaves wide open the 
key question of whether the 
Polaris force should be re- 
placed at the end of its life. 

Another member of the SDP 
national committee. Sue 
Slijpman. is a former com- 
munist who proposed a 
nuclear freeze amendment at a 
CSD meeting three years ago; 
yet she. now stands alongside 
Dr David Owen in opposing 
the Joint Commission report 
The explanation 6f these pe- " 

ory but in the highly persona! 
animosities of the debate over 
merger. Does Mr Rodgers 
- want a merger more than he 
wants a successor to Polaris? 
Does Miss Slipman want to 
have an independent party 
more than she wants to stop 
our independent deterrent? 

Dr Owen insists, correctly, 
that the question of replacing 
Polaris cannot be dodged, 
although he appears to have 
softened his insistence that his 
party make up its mind for 
good in Harrogate. His oppo- 
nents maintain both that the 
Commission position is legiti- 
mate in itself and that h is the 
only way to keep a common 
front with the Liberals. But the 
electorate can be forgiven for 
their confusion. 

To understand one's local 
SDP candidate, one might first 
ask for a view on defence. This 
may give a due to attitudes to 
merger, which in turn will tend 
to govern attitudes to possible 
future coalition partners. 
Those in favour of merger tend 
to favour a deal with Labour; 
those against are in general 
more ready to deal with either 
Labour or the Conservatives. 

Much pro-merger fervour, 
of course, conceals simple 
envy and resentment of Dr 
Owen; many of his colleagues 
spend much of their time 
casting about for new engines 
to reinforce the long siege of 
their leader’s independence. 
Watch out this week for shots 
in the long-running campaign 
for joint Alliance spokesmen 
in the Commons. See the plea 
of David Steel's confidant Mr 
Richard Holme, in the current 
issue of the New Democrat for 
an Alliance leadership whidi 
listens more (that is to say one 
in which Dr Owen talks less). 

At its foundation, many of 
Dr Qwen's present opponents 
regarded the party as a tem- 
porary vehicle to be led by Roy 
Jenkins intorepkf merger with . 
the Liberals. Mr Jenkins’ dau- 
phin. Mr David Steel, would 
then take over the combined 
entity -and set out tb. replace 

crpal opposition to Conser- 

But Mr Jenkins was. a poor 
campaigner and the merger 
lobby was brought up short by 
David Owen's capture of the 
leadership. He has proved to 
be no respecter of past emi- 
nence and eager to take his 
party into a set of new stances, 
some of which appeared de- 
signed to nib the Liberals up 
the wrong way and most of 
which have left a sense of 
uncertainly among voters. 

This interpretation of Alli- 
ance behaviour over the next 
two weeks may, indeed, not be 
a very reassuring one. But Dr 
Owen has shown that he has 
the skills that thrive in the 
peculiar conditions of newly- 
emerging three-parly politics. 
The present party system is 
heavily weighted, by electoral 
system and by history, towards 
two large organizations. A 
young third party must expect 
and accept some endemic 
instability, some intellectual 
volatility and to have great 
pressures exerted on it from 
both sides of the traditional 
party divide. 

The Alliance has a short 
history (as a combined and 
potent electoral force) and 
does not have the stabilising 
social or financial foundations 
of Labour or Conservatives. 
The leader of such a party 
requires qualities suited to its 
particular characteristics. 

Dr Owen has not yet proved 
that the Alliance is a plausible 
candidate for government. 
But. as he faces today's defence 
debate, he can reflect that he 
has brought off two commend- 
able successes. He has main- 
tained a position on the British 
deterrent which is defensible 
in principle and he has, at 
least, helped minimise the 
danger of the early Summer 
split growing wider. Any 
change in the relationship of 
the Alliance parties which 
diminished Dr Owen's capac- 
ity for exercising both leader- 
ship and partnership would 
impoverish three-party poli- 
tics^ .. 


Perhaps the most significant 
aspect of the riot in the St 
Paul's district of Bristol is the 
mixed reaction of the commu- . 
nity there to the police opera- 
tion which led up to it. The 
riots themselves, of course, 
were the reaction of some of 
the community — gangs of 
mainly black youths, local 
drug-dealers and criminals. 

The motives of the latter 
two . categories require little 
-scrutiny. It is perfectly natural 
that, drug-dealers and crim- 
inals should wish to keep the 
police out of their “manor". 

The black youths offer more 
of a puzzle. They have told 
journalists that they rioted 
because they live in a slum, 
face unemployment and 
discrimination, and are rou- 
tinely harassed by the police. It 
•is riot meant to belittle the real 
evils of unemployment and 
discrimination to point out 
that such claims are- stock 
responses. The ■ rioters are 
repeating the standard 
explanations of rioting adr 
-vanced by concerned poli- 
ticians' and. television 
sociologists. 1 

Even when these explana- 
tions .coincide with the reali- 
ties of life in St Paul’s - which 
they do only in part — their 
main significance is as a 
respectable excuse which will 

be accepted by the outside 
world. It should not be too 
readily accepted that these are 
the real reasons why they 
actually did riot 
What, however, of the re- 
action of those who did not 
riot? These break down into 
two opposing groups: for and 
against the .police. For in- 
stance, a local clergyman, the 
Rev. Peter Barnett, criticised 
the police for descending in 
riot gear and in substantial 
numbers upon. the area. He 
wondered what would be the 
reaction of the middle class 
residents of the Oifton district 
of Bristol to a similar eruption 
of police in their 'midst 
Such arguments rest upon a 
hidden assumption: namely, 
that the police are a foreign 
body in the community and 
that their arrival constitutes an 
invasion. That assumption is 
palpably false. If the middle 
class residents of Gifion were 
to be subjected to the open 
drug-dealing, mugging, vi- 
olence and intimidation that 
has been the lot of people 
living in St Paul’s, their re- 
action to the arrival of the 
police is easily predicted. It 
would be relief tempered by 
indignation that the authori- 
ties had allowed matters to 
deteriorate so for before taking 

And that is precisely the 
linion of the older residents 
ot Si Paul’s. A number of 
them, including some who 
enjoy the title “community 
leader", have complained that 
before the police raid. St Paul’s 
was a dangerous and crime- 
ridden area in which ordinary 
citizens were, quite simply, 

For St Paul's is not the 
uniformly depressed ghetto 
conjured up by the phrase 
“inner-city area”. Though tra- 
ditionally associated with 
crime and prostitution, it has 
been partly redeveloped with 
government money in recent 
years. The result is that a 
criminal subculture lives 
cheek by jowl with people (of 
several races) who want a safe 
and respectable life. 

It is their children who are 
principally at risk — and not 
simply from drugs. Criminals 
possess street glamour for 
many young people, especially 
when they are able to defy the 
law openly. And when respect- 
able figures criticise the police 
as, in effect an occupying 
force, they lend respectability 
to this illegality as. a sort of 
anti-authoritarianism. In ef- 
fect they give young people 
permission to riot There 
should not be too much sur- 
prise when they do so. 


Exciting news .from China; a 
decree just promulgated has 
abolished guaranteed employ- 
ment From now on. no em- 
ployee will be taken on 
without a trial period, and 
even when he has been ac- 
cepted on to the established 
■payroll* he still feces dismissal 
for “persistently displaying ar- 
rogance towards customers , 
or if he quarrels with the said 
customers so fiercely that he 
“loses the sale”. Moreover, he 
can also be sacked on the spot 
for refusing a transfer to a 
different job. or .even for 
wasting materials used in ms 
work: ■■ 1 : 

' Wedo not wish to alarm our 

readers, but we nither think 
that, at the next election, we 
are ‘ going to vote for the 
Revolutionary Communist 
Party of Great Britain (Marx- 
ist-Leninisi), which we under- 
stand to have a policy based 
entirely on the thesis jjtat 
whatever the Chinese Govern- 
ment does is right A more 
complete blueprint for restor- 
ing Britain to its economic 
health we cannot imagine, 
particularly since the new 
oolicy is cleary grounded, m a 

healthy respect for old-fash- 
ioned capitalism. . But if the 
Chinese authorities will allow 
os, we would like to point out 
one or two possible pitfalls. 

First the business of that 
trial period. It should not be 
too long, because they may 
find that the employee, having 
worked for, say, two months, 
will claim something akin to 
squatter’s rights, and an in- 
terminable prospect of Indus- 
trial Tribunals, court actions 
and interventions by Acas will 
stretch ahead. On the other 
hand; they may not even get 
that far; the unions will be 
suspicious of any such system, 
which smacks of insufficient 
respect, for the principle of 
apprenticeship, to say nothing 
of Undercutting established 
wage-levels with temporary 
labour. (Similarly, job transfer 
will come up against demarca- 
tion rules, the prohibition of 
waste will be. held, to contra- 
vene the agreement on perks. 
It may be a long siege.) 

But the real substance of this 
development is in the other 
provision; dismissal for ar- 
rogance to customers or losing 
sales. May we introduce our 

Chinese friends to British 
Telecom, British Rail, the Post 
Office and the North Thames 
Gas Board? We would not go 
so far as to say that those- 
institutions train their staffs in i 
arrogance and sale-losing, but 
training may not be necessary, , 
constant enouragement clearly . 
suffices. What makes the Chi-‘ 
nese think that they can end 
arrogance and achieve sales 
merely by threatening the 
sack? 1 

' The Chinese civilisation is 
old. But perhaps we can still 
teach it a thing or two. Go 
easy, friends; instead of the 
sack for being arrogant to a 
customer, what about- a stern 
rebuke for murdering one? 
And for losing sales, why not 
replace dismissal by banning j 
the culprit from the Works’] 
Outing? That, after alL is how' 
we have managed for so long,] 
and the results speak for* 
themselves. We shall watch 
the progress of our comrades 
in the East with interest and 
sympathy, and we shall at all 
times be ready, if it will help 
them, to composite the resolu- 
tion, and to move the ref- 


Challenging ‘The Church in crisis’ 

From Ms Elaine Gilks 
Sir, I must express my surprise 
and regret that so large a spare in 
Monday’s edition of your paper 
(September 8) was devoted to an 
attack on one of the more promis- 
ing features of the Church of 
England. 1 refer to the system of 
synodical government 

Mr Moore's article, “The 
Church in crisis”, while 
critical of synod, does not

the process by which the synodical 
System was formulated, or proffer 
any suggestions for its improve- 

Comments such as “here is a 

From the Reverend R. B. Gage 
Sir, Gavin Stamp (September 10) 
cannot go unchallenged. He as- 
serts that “Many modern 
clergymen” think that ancient 
churches are “at best an 
irrelevance". The feet is, many 
modem clergymen are at iheir 
wfts' end as to how to find the 
money required for maintenance. 

Our parish is luckier ihan many. 
With a population of 2,000, we 
have a fine ancient church of 
moderate size. Over the last six 
years we have raised some 
£50,000. We are exhausted. 

Yet ouraichiteettells us that we 

, must find £125,000 more. What 

body which has pronounced itself are we to do? Certainly not 
competent to decide the worship ' demolish the church, which every- 

and doctrine of the Church of 
England" (my italics) hint that 
power has been incorrectly as- 
sumed, but what else other than a 

body representative of bishops, 

clergy and laity could be entrusted 
to make such decisions? 

1 would like io see the figures 
that back up the assertion that “a 
small minority“ of churchgoers 
elect the membership of the 
parochial church councils and 
deanery synods; but if the general 
principle is correct, then whom 
does the “churchgoer" have to 
blame for not attending the AGM 
but him/herself? 

Synodical government is by no 
means perfect, but it is. from 
deanery level upwards, a genuine 
attempt to introduce an element of 
democracy into the governing of 
the Church of England. Motions 
passed down from General Synod 
are debated very seriously in the 
lower houses, because deanery 
and diocesan synods greatly value 
their role in the consultation 
process and are anxious to have 
their views heard. 

A working democratic body will 
inaugurate changes, and when 
people dislike change they tend to 
call it a crisis. However the true 
definition of crisis is. of course, “a 
tuming-poim”. To my mind, the 
synodical system is the pivot on 
which the Church of England will 
turn away from the Middle Ages 
and towards the future. 

Yours faithfully.

From Ms Cathy Seymour 
Sir. I suspect Charles Moore. A N.

themsel ves “lost interest in almost 
everything" to have to resort to 
compiling so distorted an account 
of today's clergy (September 9). 

As a rector's daughter. I require 
more soothing than many an 
organist after reading the extract 
in which the authors admit “it is 
easy enough to sneer at the 
clergy”. They may earn easy

nature, but may God foigive them 
for it!

Nato frigates 

From Mr Robert G. Heather 
Sir. Rodney Cowton correctly 
points out (Nato's frigate 
strategy". September 1 and 2) that 
there are likely .to .be political 
difficulties to be overcome if the 
UK is to siay ijn the Nato frigate 
project, but that the defence 
industry stands to gain a welcome 
shot in the arm if it should go 
ahead. I would like to make two 
points. ■ 

First, the principal reason for 
selling up the- project was to 
enable ships to be produced more 
cheaply. The estimates show that 
over 25 per cent saving can be 
made ifthesame design is used for 
ail 50 ships in a collaborative 
project . 

However, every time one coun- 
try decides for political or opera- 
tional reasons that it must have a 
national variant, some of that 
saving will be lost. The number of 
variants will therefore have to be

Maiden Castle 

From Mr R. N. R- Peers 
Sir. The descriptions of English 
Heritage's excavation of Malden 
Castle (September 3) are remark- 
ably similar to those reports, in 
your issues 50 years ago, of 
Mortimer Wheeler’s work on the 
site. It is all the sadder to hear that 
£100.000 is now being spent on 
work inside Maiden Castle, a 
monument which is in no 
danger whatsoever from, destruc- 
tion, while the many known 
archaeological sites along the 
route of the by-pass a few hundred 
yards away are being left un- 
recorded because the Department 
of Transport and English Heritage 
cannot decide who shall pay for 
their excavation. 

Six of the 12 months available 

for these exacavations. which 
would help to put the monument 
in its multi-period (not just Iron 
Age) context in the prehistoric 
landscape, have already passed, 
and there is no sign that this much 
more important issue will ever be 

Had they been told of this, the 
members of the 1 Ith International 
Archaeology Congress, when they 
visited the site today, might have 
been somewhat puzzled at English 
Heritage's order of priority.

The education of our future

Making life safe 
for butterflies 

From the Director of the Game 
Conservancy Trust 
Sir. Nigel Andrew's discussion 
(feature, August 26) of Britain's 
butterfly scarcity, exacerbated by 
two years of cold spring weather, 
identifies a wider problem, that 
“butterflies and intensive farming 
simply don't mix. Pesticides, kill- 
ing jmsetectivdy. are a problem 

Since 1983 biologists of the 
Game Conservancy have been 
monitoring the effects on farm- 
land wildlife of selectively spray- 
ing six-metre wide strips along the 
edges of cereal fields. The num- 
bers and diversity of butterfly 
species on frilly sprayed and 
selectively unsprayed areas in the 
principal study area in north-east 
Hampshire have been assessed 
each year during the period from 
May to August. 

The results clearly demonstrate 
that many more species of butter- 
flies. and more individuals of each 
species, were seen on those head- 
land strips which were selectively 
unsprayed with certain pesticides 
than on conventionally sprayed 
areas. About twice as many butter- 
flies were found on these 
“conservation" headlands in 1984 
and again in 1985. 

The cereals and game birds 
research project, conceived by 
arable farmers and largely funded 
by their voluntary donations, has 
already demonstrated that, by 
careful use of pesticides on head- 
lands, enormous benefits can be 
obtained for many other species of 
insects, wild flowers, mammals 
and game birds with so far only a 
minimal loss of yield to the 
intensive cereal grower. 

There are important long-term 
implications for the use of agro- 
chemicals on arable farmland, and 
the project scientists' aim is to 
provide fanners with an option of 
“management packages" which 
will enable them to maintain high 
yields and good crop quality at 
relatively little cost by reducing 
some pesticide use, with all the 
resulting benefits to farmland

Hong Kong graft 

From Mr G. T. Barnes 
Sir. In his article under the 
heading “Private graft swamps 
squad" (August 25), David 
Bonavia wrote that the Indepen- 
dent Commission Against 
Corruption in Hong Kong had 
been swamped with complaints 
about graft in private business, 
which hampered its ability to deal 
with "more serious crimes". 

He also quoted informed 
sources as saying that the ICAC 
would like to see more such 
complaints "handled by the Royal 
Hong Kong police fraud squad 
While it is true that corruption 
complaints involving Ihe private 
sector have increased it is 
misleading to think that the 
commission is being swamped by 
them. In 1985 allegations against 
the private sector totalled 1 ,008 as 
against 888 in 1984 and 877 in 
1 983. but this was offset to a large 
extent by fewer allegations against 
Government departments and 
public bodies, so that the total of 
corruption reports for 1985 at 
2.550 differed only marginally 
from the 2,365 reports in 1 984 and 
the ?.526 in 1983. 

Nor would i agree with Mr 
Bonavia that because of these 
private sector complaints we are 
in any way unable to deal with 
“more serious crimes", whatever 
that might mean. You cannot get 
much more serious than one of 
our current cases — a S6bn fraud 
There is no question of the 
ICAC wanting to see more of these 
corruption-related frauds being 
handled by the Royal Hong Kong 
Police or any other Jaw enforce- 
ment agency. It is our statutory 
duty to investigate such com- 
plaints and we pursue them with 
the utmost determination and I 
might say, success. 

Mr Bonavia is also incorrect in 
stating that the commission's 
annual budget is not published 
Not only is it published regularly 
in each of our annual reports, but 
it is also included in the Hong 
Kong Government’s annual 
expenditure estimates.

Lane discipline 

Front Mr D. !!■ Forsyth 
Sir, In many cases the overcrowd- 
ing on our motorways is caused by 
drivers (mainly of cats) occupying 
the middle lane when the nearside 
lane is empty, thus fleering its 
availability to others. 

However, now that we are 
constructing fourth lanes for some 
of our motorways (report, August 
21). we need to think afresh about 
the rale prohibiting overtaking on 
the near tide. Overtaking on the 
near tide is pennined in the USA 
in California and also certain 
other stales where there are multi- 
lane motorways; it is likewise 
allowed generally in Australia. 

Let u$ either enforce the “keep 
over to the left" policy, or allow 
nearside overtaking (with 
arompanying necessary fene disci- 
pline). But not, please, the worst of

SEPTEMBER 13 1878 

77zr Abercarne colliery explosion 
was the most terrible of me many 
disasters which struck the 
coalfields in 1878. Out of 387 
miners 268 perished. The public 
hod not recovered from its shock 
of a week earlier when the 
Princess Alice sank in the Thames 
with a loss of more than 650 lives 
COn This Den" September -f, 
1985 ) 


The excitement in this terrible 
event is unabated. The following is 
the history of to-day's proceed- 
ings:— At about 2 o’clock this 
morning a sudden outburst of a 
volume of dark, thick smoke 
ascended through every aperture, 
finding its way to the surface, and a 
warning was at unce given for all 
persons to quit the scene. A rush 
was immediately made, and at 4 
ii clock ihe dark volumes of smoke 
still ascending caused the greatest 
alarm to the officials. About 3 aan. 
a party of excavators were set to 
work to make a way for the water in 
the Monmouthshire canal, which 
leads from Crumlin to Newport, 
wending its way in dose proximity 
to the colliery towards the east. At 
an early hour Mr. Robert Jordan, 
the principal underground ngent of 
the Ebbw Vale Company, arrived 
from London. The chief managers 
of the local collieries were also 
present. Instances nf painful and 
almost wholesale bereavement are 
quoted. Colliers from all parts of 
the district are flocking to the spot. 
A young man named Absalom, who 
is among the saved, states that he 
and a few others were not aware of 
what had happened. They imag- 
ined that there was something 
wrong with the ventilation, and 
they at once made the best of their 
way out of the pit. It was not 
derided to turn the water on until a 
consultation had been held be- 
tween the Government officials 
and the various colliery managers 
present. The stream of water is still 
flowing into the pit, and will have 
to do so until it reaches a certain 
point. Some say that the flames 
have spread so far as the titird 
seam, and if that is the fact it will 
take some time to thoroughly 
extinguish them. It is probable that 
the water will have to run for about 
48 bourn: then the pumping opera- 
tions will have to be commenced. 
Another week will elapse before 
any of the bodies are recovered. All 
day the people were prevented 
Emm approaching the mouth of the 
pit, for a second explosion was 
dreaded, and the police kept order 
• admirably under the direction of 
Superintendent Macintosh . . . 

Our Newport Correspondent 
telegraphed last night:— 

“During the whole of Wednesday 
night the pit at Abercarne was 
surrounded by an eager crowd, 
comprising many widows and fa- 
therless children. About 3 o'clock, a 
consultation having then been held 
between the colliery and Govern- 
ment officials, it was determined to 
flood the pit, as it was known to be 
on fire, dense volumes of smoke 
ascending through the shaft. Of the 
fate of the men then in the pit there 
could be no doubt. The water from 
the canal which runs close by was 
turned into the seething mass. The 
last exploring party went down and 
were called up again about 12 
u cluck midnight, when orders were 
given for their immediate return, 
as a second explosion was thought 
to be imminent. For the same 
reason the crowd was kept from the 
pit's mouth. Of the 370 men who 
went down, only about 100 are 
saved. Eleven are dead of those 
who have been brought to the 
surface, and in the pit the number 
is reckoned at 256. Three of the 
men died this morning, one being 
the overman, Joseph Jordan. The 
crowd to-day was large, but it was 
an orderly and grow one. 
Abercarne. a straggling village, 
exhibits every sign of mourning, 
fur blinds are drawn duwn in the 
bouses, and the shutters are up in 
many of the shup-windows. The pit 
Ls the oldest at Abercarne. It was 
sunk about 30 years agu. but only 
the first vein was worked for a 
number of years. Ultimately the 
proprietors decided upon 
endeavouring to reach the celebrat- 
ed black-vein seam, so much prized 
for shipping purposes. There are 
upwards of 20 miles of workings in 
connexion with the colliery, and it 
extends upwards of two miles 
under the Cwmcarne mountain, 
having a shaft at Cwmcarne, from 
which some bodies were recovered 
yesterday. Mr. C adman. Govern- 
ment inspector, and Mr. Donald 
Bain, his assistant, are on the spot, 
and Mr. Wales, of the South Wales 
district, is also present . . .

Sketchbooks of 

Royal Academy of Arts 

Picasso: The 
Development and 
Transformation of an 



Amid all the endless outpourings of 
some 70 years of artistic activity, it 
would be amazing — indeed, well- 
nigh unthinkable — if Picasso bad 
found time also to keep a diary. Yet 
he did. and the evidence is now 
resplendency laid out before us at the 
Royal Academy, until November 19. - 

It is not admittedly, a diary in 
words, but something much more 
vivid and illuminating: a diary in 
images, in a total of 1 75 sketchbooks, 
of which 45 are here on show, dating 
from 1900 to 1965. The earliest 
included, be it noted, is actually the 
twentieth in the catalogue raisonni 
which forms part of the lavish 
accompanying volume, Je suis k 
cahicr (£1 6.90. or £36 hardback). 

The tide, of course, is a quotation 


from Picasso himself who evidently 
took his most casual scribble at its 
proper worth; and seems to have 
religiously preserved everything to do 
with his creative evolution, of which 
the sketchbooks are the most com- 
plete and authoritative record. In this 
dhow, for instance, are various odds 
and ends from the sketchbook of 
1907 to which be confided his Gist 
thoughts for the epoch-making Dem- 
oiselles d Avignon, including some 
tiny fragmentary pages stuffed carp* 
fully into a pocket at the back, which 
contain vital evidence about the 
genesis of this painting. 

Who but Picasso would have made 
quite sure that even these apparently 
worthless scraps were saved for 
posterity? Does this suggest that he 
was — horror of honors to our prim 
English views on such matters — self- 
important. thinking that what he did 
would prove ultimately significant in 
the scheme of things? If so, then few 
in history can have been so correct in 
their shamelessness. 

But one thing Picasso never lacked 
was humour. Next' to the most 
exquisite and highly finished 
drawings from every stage of his 
chameleon self-transformation are 
delightful cartoons in- which he 
observes , with a sharp hut indulgent 
eye the world around him — look, for 
instance, at the 1958 image of the 
captious connoisseur sealed, in front 
of an easel while a crouched figure 

(artist? dealer?) rummages frantically 
through a portfolio — or develops his 
own joyous erotic fantasies. Interest- 
ingly, these seem to flower more fully 
and explicitly in his extreme old age: 
the sketchbooks from 1964 show 
dderiy-tooking satyrs throwing them- 
selves irresistibly on hefty and none 
too willing nymphs, while on other 
pages Pan-figures chase loose-limbed 
pink ladies through the patches of 
vivid colour. There is also a sketch- 
book from the same year in which the 
familiar images of the artist in his 
studio with a model recur - except 
that this time the figure of the artist is 
replaced with a painting chimp. 

Is that bow Picasso finally saw 
himself: much like Desmond 
Morris's pupils, foUowing who knows 
what obscure urge as they dawbed a 
canvas with paint? Maybe, but if so, 
the notion does not seem to have 
worried him unduly. If it came into 
his head, who cared where it came 
from? Down it went in the sketch- 
book, and from there, as likely as not. 
into paint. But the sketchbooks also 
show bow bard he worked on his 
images, and how carefully critical he 
could be of them. It is extraordinary 
to see how a wonderfully elaborate 
and complete line-drawing or some- 
times fully coloured-model for a 
painting will that be ..made over, 
drastically simplified, or abandoned 
altogether when something, better 
comes along. 

This is particularly apparent in the 
earlier sketchbooks, at least as se- 
lected for exhibition. Bui at Wadding- 
ton until October 25 we can see the 
same process of refinement and 
sometimes radical change being ap- 
plied to later prints: in particular, the 
two extensive series of proofs for the 
etchings Le Taureau and Les Deux 
Femmes nues (both 1945-46) show 
Picasso evolving little by little from 
an elaborately naturalistic beginning 
through 11 states of the first and 18 of 
the second to. the expressively 
stripped and abstracted published 

If there are still people around — 
can there be, at this late date? — who 
persist in regarding . Picasso as some 
sort of confidence trickster, foisting a 
phony idea of what “modem art” 
should be on a gullible world and 
laughing up his sleeve, these sketch- 
books' should be the ultimate refuta- 
tion. Why, after alt should one lie to 
one's diary? The seriousness and 
consistency of Picasso's search for 
himself, and the perfect way of saying 
what he knew must be said, cannot 
for a moment be doubted face-to-face 
with so much evidence. And the 
excitement of actually getting as far as 
is humanly possible inside the mind 
of such agenius is somethingit would 
be difficult to match in the whole 
.range of artistic experience. .

A challenge to the Great and Good 

Listening to last week’s Any 
Questions? I fell into vicarious 
Stage fright, for this was the 
first of the much-heralded 
editions. Instead of the invari- 
able three men and one 
woman, drawn exclusively 
from the ranks of the Great 
and the Good, this and the 
ensuing three editions will 
each include a member sup- 
posed to be one of us. Some 
140 people applied for this 
distinction and four were cho- 
sen — three men and one 

What a prospect, then, for 
Denise Robertson from 
County Durham, ploywrile. 
novelist and agony aunt, to 
have to open for the Common 
Woman, and particularly in 
the company of three such as 
Kenneth Clarke. David Owen 
and Roy Hattersley, all senior 
MP$ all Right Honourable, 
and, by definition, ostenta- 
tiously Great and Good. 

But Mrs Robertson acquit- 
ted herself with an assurance 

and a fluency, scarcely less 
impressive than that of the old 
pros alongside her. In feet on 
at least one matter she injected 
a very useful note of realism. 
A question about the possible 
demise of the Alliance in the 
wake of the next election 
produced from Messrs Clark 
and Hattersley the inevitable 
earnest defence of the bless- 
ings of the two-party system 
and some cheap (tigs at the 
Alliance. Denise Robertson 
provoked the most applause 
of the evening by declaring 
that she didn't (are which 
party or combination of par- 
lies governed us, provided 
they could get us out of our 
present mire. 

So on the evidence of round 
one. three cheers for the men- 

Mind you. whether people as 
articulate and full of readily 
accessible opinions as Mrs 
Robertson and her three male 
successors can properly lay 
claim to that description is 
open to question. On the other 
hand. 1 am not sure ifwe 

Alan Alda’s hit comedy about 
life, liberties and the pursuit of happiness 

would want to listen to them if 
they could. 

It’s in that somewhat plebe- 
ian role, and with as dubious a 
claim to it, that Brian Red- 
head has been continuing his 
Radio 4 investigation of (he 
Bible, The Good Book (Sun- 
days repealing Thursdays). 
After a subdued start, the 
Redhead manner is more 
" apparent, his own often engag- 
ing opinions matching those 
of his learned contributors. 
These programmes have often 
been remarkably illuminating. 
1 was particularly struck by an 
argument put forward about 
the Book of Job: we should see 
it as a graphic assertion that 
suffering and misfortune have 
nbthing much to do with our 
desserts. Less happily, last 
week’s 30 minutes was no- 
where near enough time m 
which to account for the vast 
influence of Jesus Christ, al-" 
though Mr Redhead did find 
time to suggest that charity 
andgood works are some kind 
of Christian monopoly. 

What is your stereotype of a 
certain sort of Radio 3 play? 
Try this: two men. one elderly, 
one young and previously 
unacquianted. start a 
conversation on a park bench 
In a small French seaside 
town. The play is by a 
Frenchman and he has given 
his characters ominously sym- 
bolic names: Dusoi and 

Lesort Yes. soil and fete. 

From the word go, their 
conversation lacks the idiom 
and impeteus needed to per- 
suade us that it might indeed 
take place. Anyway, young Mr 
Fate begins by planting in the 
other's mind toe idea that he 
cannot be quite sure of his- 
own identity. Plainly he has 
never beard of this rather 
common notion and we begin 
to suspect that for “of the soiT 
we should read “clod” 
throughout This is confirmed 
when the younger man then 
goes on to hint in no very 
subtle fashion, that the girl 
with whom he, Dusol, is living 
might betray or even do away 
with him. The old chap hasn't 
though of that one either but 
he inexplicably regains his 
cheerfulness when it is put to 
him that bis two zones of 
ignorance cancel each other 
out The thing ends at this 
point and we sit for a moment 
wondering what on earth to 
make of Lesort’s concluding 

A play conforming to this 
stereotype precisely went out 
on Tuesday night It was Jean 
Lessay's As Opinion FoIL 
Glyn Dearman produced in 
Frank Finlay and Nicholas 
Grace were the actors. I 
decided that the “hm . . 
must be an expression of their 
bafflement and mine.

which all they am do is 
rearrange the furniture. That ■ 
simple message is something 
to bang on to during the 
convoluted stretches of this 
1979 piece. 

Worlds Apart is a family 
chronicle spanning the years 
from. 1 894 to 1914 with the 
evident purpose of showing 
how the . lives of : well-to-do 
Cuban citizens and their black 
servants were affected by the 
transition from Spanish to 
American control. From the 
opening scenes it seems that 
Triana is out to record his. 
country's convulsions through 
the experiences of these non- 
political people. Ricardo, a 
plantation owner, flees to New 
York with his family rather 
foan take sides in the 1894 
uprising, entrusting his estate 
to the wily - Menendez. This 
engenders a property dispute 
that rumbles on throughout 
the play. However, it is soon 
elbowed out of central po- 
sition by numerous competing 
issues. There is no due even as 
to how the family's fortunes 
have been affected by their 
loss. . 

This is not a play from 
which the outsider will learn ' 
anything of Cuban history. Its 
main ' concern is with the 
development of Ricardo's 
three children, two girls and a 
boy. first seen- playing near- 
incestuous games and 
exchanging sexual secrets in a 
domestic climate of moneyed 
Catholic repression. Frorq the 
childhood scenes (their lasciv- 
ious boredombeautifuJIy con- 
veyed by Joely Richardson, 
Janet 1 McTeer. and Philip ■ 
Franks), the narrative pro- 
ceeds implacably through 
adolescence to scenes of court- 
ship and marriage, only Alicia 
(Miss Richardson) does the 
right thing by marcying an 
arrogant bool* of her own class. 

The son rebels after, being 
forced into the army and 
filially emigrates to Paris. 
Victoria, the play’s " main 
character.- marries (he son of 

Janet McTeer 

an anarchist, only to discover ■ 
that sex disgusts her: and then 
undergoes an explosive 
awakening with a gui tar-play- 
ing lover. • 

This episode raises ques- 
tions all too typical of the play 
as a whole. We arc led to 
understand that it is Victoria's 
upbringing that has given her 
such a fear of the bedroom: 
and that her sensual memory 
ora naked mulatto has under- 
scored sexual with, racial ta- 
boos. So why is she released 
from this spell by a wealthy 
Cuban of her own class? 
Dramatically, the events -rio 
not add up. And here, -as 
elsewhere, you are presented 
with a story thaucculd go on 
forever. ~~ y .. , 

The picture that builds up is 
a generalized one of female 
subservience and male swag- 
ger. When politics does enter 
the picture it is again in 
generalized scenes where the 
men discuss corruption and 
crooked advancement with- 
out any sense of how these 
factors affect their own lives. 

Nick Hamm's production is 
at its best in the sexual 
arousalof which Triana is a 
master: and in scenes, of 
festivity, where intricate 
dances to the new-fangled 
gramophone (music by Ilona 
Sekacz) mingle .with the 
domestic violence. - 

Much the strongest reason 
for seeing the production is 
Miss McTeer’s performance. 
She may not establish Victoria 
as an emblem of feminist 
rebellion, but she undergoes 
wonderfully varied develop- 
ment from giggling child and 
curious adolescent to an icily 
untouchable wife before tak- 
ing delirious possession of the 
forbidden lover-

It was only appropriate that 
the honour of giving the last 
Prom before the ritual of the 
final two evenings should fall 
to the City of Birmingham

They really are in the top 
league, and they set about 
proving it immediately here 
with a glittering performance 
of Ravel’s Alhorada del graci- 
asa which was graced by some 
splendid contributions from 
horns, trumpets and the prin- 
cipal bassoon. 

They followed this with 
Debussy's orchestral /maser, 
played for once in its entirety 
(normally all we get is 
“Iberia"). Here Rattle gen-

dance. not by blurring details

Perhaps not even Boulez, 
though, could have given each 
and every colour such a -vivid 
intensity, while Rattle also 
sustained remarkable mo- 
mentum through concentrat- 
ing upon subtleties of rhythm 
and tempo. 

U was a clever stroke to 
balance images with the Sev- 
enth Symphoity of Sibelius, 
for the work of both compos- 
ers is concerned with redefin- 
ing the symphonic process. 
Sibelius's one movement 
structure, terse but pregnant, 
heroic yet darkly 
introspective, was given the 
intensity it requires. 

But Rachmaninov's Fourth 
Piano Concerto was perhaps a 
slightly odd choice in such 
company, but again it surfaces 
relatively rarely, and Philip 
Fowke despatched it with a 
dean sound as well as plenty 
of unostentatious emotion.

Seldom do South Korean 
theatre audiences show such 
enthusiasm. 1 was told by local 
residents during the acclama- 
tion for the Royal Opera's 
production of Turandot at the 
4000-seat Sejong Cultural 
Centre in Seoul. It was the 
least-known here of the three 
operas which began the 
company's six-weeks tour in 
the Far East, continuing next 
week to Tokyo. Osaka and 

. What had earlier seemed a 
possible gamble in the 
orientalisms of Andrei 
Serban's original production, 
with the masked ritual danc- 
ing in the foreground and the 
surrounding chorus, also 
masked, in a tiered theatre-set 
of eastern design, were ev- 
idently taken as a com- 
pliment. In conjunction with 
the musical splendours Under 
Jacques Deiacote. and some 
exciting new voices, Puccini 
was even now able to make a 
fresh conquest. 

It is the second tour here by 
the Royal Opera, who first 
came to Seoul in 1979, with 
foUowing visits by both the 
Royal Ballet companies in the 
interim. Some 350 singers, 
musicians and technical staff 
are present while 250 ions of 
scenery and costumes were 
transported by sea to stage 
Carmen and Samson et Dalita 
in addition to Turandot. 
According lo the Royal Opera 
House assistant director. Pan! may never again be 
possible to put together the 
resources necessary for such a 
'long and far-flung tour. • 

The timing in Seoul was a' 
week' in advance of the open- 
ing of the Asian Games here, 
which has a wide-ranging 
cultural festival surrounding it . 
and to which the Royal Opera 
was a majestic preliminary. 
The Koreans had the value in 
spectacle as well as muse 
from the operas, which 
opened with Carmen, at- 
tended by President Chun 
Doo-hwan and his wife. Such 
fierce security prevailed that 
the audience were still finding 
(heir way to seats half an hour 

into the first act. Protection 
extended even to the copies of 
old rifles carried by the smug- 
glers in Act 3. They, were 
minutely inspected before- 
hand, and the one which fires 
a single blank shot was only, 
handed over two minutes 
before its cue. • 

To afirst-time visitor like 
myself it- was strange to find - 
the Oriental aspects of design 
in both Turandot and Samson 
meant that these looked more 
at home in their Seoul context 
than did Carmen which, for all 
its universal popularity, ac- 
quired a touch of the exotic 

On the first night it found 
Agnes Baltsa in splendid voice 
as she developed . the vocal 
character through at hast four 
of the seven ages of women in 
the course of four acts. Franco 
Bonisolli made an unsched- 
uled appearance as a vig- 
orously song Don Jose in 
place of the indisposed Josi 
Carreras. He s ur prised Baltsa 
as much as os by sweeping her 
bodily into his arms to carry 
her up the stairs and off stage

Turandot was distinguished 
by the acquisition of Olivia

Bonisolli returned to Calaf.

Judith Howarth and Anne 
Mason (Frasquita. and

Barker’s first-time conducting'

In common with Jacques.

some problems in securing a 
real ensemble from the Royal 
Opera orchestra on account of 
the widely stretched pit below

T here was a gap in the 

proceedings and the 
£*by, bespectacled 
figure of Robert 

Tannenbaum, the 

company manager, was filling 
it. Mr Tannenbaum, for all his 
admirable attributes, does not 
cat the dash one has been led 
to expect from that personi- 
fication of generalship and 
jealousy, Othello, but be was 
doing his best. 

Rehearsals that day bad 
gone well for the debut 
production of the Los Angeles 
Opera Company, which be- 
gins its opening season next 
month with a new Go tz 
Friedrich production' of 
OteUo- In the title role is 
Placido Domingo, one of the 
world's best-loved and most- 
celebrated tenors this century. 

With the skill of a painter, 
Friedrich had added final 
loaches to his grouping of the 
chorus on a dramatic diff of a 

The passion andcharisma of Placido Domingo transce nd 
cultural boundaries. He talked to Paul Vaflely about the 

disaster of Mericoandhis hopes for a triumph in Zeffi relli’s 
film of OteUo, which opens in London later this month 

set for the opening tempest. 
Then the choreography of the 

impressive tavern brawl was 
fine-tuned by the fight-master, 
Anthony de Longis. 

Now they had reached the 
point where the principals 
were required and Tannen- 
baum, score in hand, began 
impersonating the great Span- 
ish tenor, who was not quite 
yet due on the set 

The new company derives 
much of its strength from the 
involvement of Domingo; «nH 
by a happy coincidence its 
debut production would fol- 
low dose on the heels of the 
premiere of Franco Zeffirelli's 
film of the opera. -

through the huge rehearsal

recovering only slowly. People 
do not have homes or schools

Shortly after the earthquake 
struck, Domingo called a press 
conference at which be ap- 
pealed that everyone should 
release him from his operatic 
commitments for the next 
year so that he could devote 
himself to fund-raising for 
disaster relief. His commit- 
ments were considerable. 

For years Domingo had 
piled on the performances. By 
the age of 40 he had already 
done twice as many as Maria 
Callas in her entire career. 
Many felt he was overdoing iL 
Certainly the treadmill be had 
created for himself was such 
that many companies were 
not prepared to release him 
because of the major financial 
inconvenience it would cause. 

“I was very disappointed 
because if everybody had Jet 
me I would have been able to 
organize a magnificent series 
of events and raise double the

new lines on his forehead and 
his tired eyes have taken on a 
hooded look. “The hurt is stfll 
there. Obviously you have to 
get over iL But everybody 
reminds you of it somehow, 
every day. Like now we are 
talking about it, so the hurt 
lives again.** 

We talked about the latest 
film but the conversation was 
desultory- Yes, he was pleased 
- with the film, but any singer 
was bound to fed that the 
editing could have been better; 
the camera did not linger to 
savour the quietus which fol- 
lowed dramatic moments. But 
no, he would not like to direct 
himself. He thought that the 
film would be a bigger success 
than his last collaboration 
with Zeffirelli on La Traviala. 
No, the arias were not as 
strong but ft was a story which 
touched people more; the 
jealousy and the racism were 
modem issues. 

Next day we met again and 
this time it was a different 
Domingo. Fully rested, he 
moved among the production 
staff with a word of greeting 
or gentle inquiry for almost 
everyone. He wandered 
around the hall singing to 
himself with a quiet exu- 
berance. At the piano he 
smiled and paused to play, 
with impressive fluency and 
without consulting the score, a 
few bars from the opening 

Domingo's matter-of-fact 
niceness to all about him was 
clearly appreciated. One of his 
fellow principals described 
him as “the dream partner”. 

On the second day he 
sought me out. as if in 
compensation for yesterday’s 
sotto wto? effort. “It is amazing 
how many different ways 
there are of doing a piece. 
Different directors have their 
own ideas. Gdtz is a great 
director. You have to be able 
to trust all these people and 
start from scratch”, he said. 

The LA debut is to be his 
hundredth performance of 
OteUo. For ft he was working 
on a fresh characterization 
which would serve him for 
performances in LA in Octo- 
ber. in Covent Garden in 
January and at La Scala on the 
exact centenary of the opera's 
premiere there in 1886. He 
was more animated now. His 
new stage Othello would be 
different from the film one. 
He said that in film the actions 
had to be less grand than on 
stage: that made Othello a 
weaker, more self-pitying 
character on the screen and a 
more angry one on stage. 


e was critical of 
Zeffirelli's de- 
cision not to allow 
many of the sing- 
ers to appear in the 
film but to use dubbed actors 
instead. Singers needed the 
exposure, he said. He would . 
see to that in the future. Next 
year he would begin work on a 
film of Offenbach’s Tales qf 
Hoffmann, directed by Jona- 
than Miller. Films of Aida. II 
Trovatore and La Boheme 
would follow along with a life 
of Puccini and a Merry Widow 
film — Barbra Streisand might 
play alongside him in that 

He had just recorded Lo- 
hengrin with Sir Georg Solti, 
he said, and had now agreed to 
record Die Frau ohne Schatten 
with him too, probably in 
1988/89. He would conduct 
more. Not that he intended to 
sing less. He now had 1.900 
performances and “84 or 85” 
roles to his crediL 

He thought he now sang 
OteUo better than he did a year 
ago when the soundtrack was 
recorded with Loren Maazel. 
“My voice feels fuller, warmer 
and more secure. When I 
really concentrate now it feels 
better titan ever. After the 
operation, which was for a 
double hernia, the feeling is 
that Z can support it better. I 
have more breath control It 
was a good thing to get the 
operation over with. It has 
been a bad year but what can 
you do? It is destiny, I accept 
Now I am happy in myself. I 
have suffered a lot and learnt a 
Jot I just hope 1 don't have a 
year like that again." 

Gdtz Friedrich called for 
another rehearsal of the first- 
act love duet “There is no 
possibility to lie in this opera. 
Verdi wrote iron music with 
tears and this is the key 
scene.” the director of the 
Deutsche Opera. Berlin told 
me afterwards. "If this great 
love does not come across 
(hen all the high drama, the 
heroics, the psychosis goes for 
nothing. We are not moved. 
This is Placido’s greatness, to 
portray this love so large the 
world cannot hold iL to unite 
all these qualities in one 
person. There is no Othello 
better than Placido.” 


Venice of those days with all 
the differences of culture, race 
and religion.” 

As the duet began. Miss 
Dessi removed heT chewing 
gum and threw it on to the 
stage behind her. Domingo 
once more held nothing back 
and she responded. Her voice 

a round ofappfause 
swept the auditorium. 

Daniela Dessi stuck her 
little finger in the corner of her 
mouth. Placido Domingo 
grinned sheepishly, like a 
schoolboy on prize-giving day. 
It had been a bad year, but it 
seemed it might be almost

together they are fighting the 
sleazy street peddlers of time- 
share apartments. 

The locals (which, in the 
Algarve, means the English 
colony just as much as the 
native Portuguese) are con- 
tinuing their struggle to curb 
the building development 
which is always “just about" 
to destroy their holiday habi- 

But both the landscape and 
the style of life on Portugal’s 
southern coastal strip remain 
peculiarly impervious to the 
pace of change which has 
accelerated remarkably in re- 
cent years and shows no signs 
of letting up. This is particu- 
larly true for those tourists 
who lake advantage of the 
wide availability of villas. 
These are the characteristic 
single-storeyed, white-walled, 
Moorish chimney-potted holi- 
day homes which Algarvian 
tradition has established as 
the area's architectural stan- 
dard — and which is supported 
by formidable bureaucratic 

Since the early 1 950s British 
■ tourists have come to the 
Algarve, enjoyed the rugged 
beaches, the cheap drink and 
labour, the sense of a remote 
-.^enclave, and they have built 
. mefcyillas et la Ponuguaise on 
the outside and a Ja Surbiton 
' or Peshawar on the inside. 

» The national tourist in- 
; duslry may now be somewhat 
• suspicious of these ready- 
i made tourist units, whose 
'* occupants make a less than 
optimum contribution to the 
regional economy. Civil ser- 
vants and property specu- 
lators (whether working to- 
gether or separately) prefer the 
use of labour-intensive hotels 

or the new kind of “executive 
villas” which are grouped 
together in compounds 
around the gymnasiums and 
tcle.x machines. But the older 
style of villa is still there — for 
those sensible folk who want 

It is easier to recommend 
renting such a villa than 
buying one. For about £400 
you can enjoy a fortnight with 
almost every home comfort 
plus a few others that are 
rather rarer at home (such as 
warm private swimming pools 
and Europe's dryest summer

Beached boats at AJbnfetra 

As long as you make sure 
that you are not in the 
crowded heart of the various 
holiday centres and that your 
villa is not perched above a 
main road on a ledge that 
would better suit a double 
garage, you have a base from 
which you can swim, sail, 
deep-sea fish, or do nothing to 
your heart's content. 

Meon Villas, which is the 
market leader, has a high- 
quality range to choose from 
and seems to rule its villa-

Be careful if you are dealing 
with a less well-known com- 
pany. If you are persuaded- to 
buy one (somehow the home- 
from-home feeling seems to 
create an urge to visit estate 
agents), then still greater care 
is needed. The growing num- 
ber of villas advancing across 
the red earth of the Algarve 
has not been matched by a 
similar expansion in -services 
underground. Neither sew- 
erage, electricity nor water 
supply can be taken for 

The big boom at present is 
in time-share apartments. If 
you are prepared to listen to 
hours of sales pitch you can

A young man approaches 
you on the streets of Albufeira 
or Carvoeiro. He offers a trip 
to see a development that will 
“sweep you off your feet", 
ensuring a week in the sun for 
life and all for the price of an 
old car. If you accept his 
invitation to view he is em- 
powered to give away a free 
meal for two at a restaurant of 
his choice. 

This form of street activity 
was apparently just about 
bearable to the Algarve bur- 
gers when it was carried out by 
Monde, well-bred sales girls

Channel Island getaways 

Autumn on the Danube 

Algarve action: watching the waves crash, top, and a peaceful hnddle of villas, above 
winter in the Harrods perfume 

department When the tactics 
began to owe more to Times 
Square than to Knightsbridge, 
their numbers were reduced. 

But searchers after free 
meals or free golf should have 
no trouble. And as long as one 
is not seduced by a bankrupt 
hotel conversion, where room 
453 could be “yours for fife”, 
and as long as one believes the 
evidence of one's eyes (new 
building all over the place) 

rather than the salesman's 
patter on your ears (virtually 
no new building allowed: gov- 
ernment controls around the 
corner), (here need be no long- 
term harm. 

And when the visitor has 
negotiated (with or around) 
the salesmen, when he has had 
his fill of estate agents and 
hamburger ban, he has only to 
go a few miles out of the 
expanding towns, along the 
coast or better still inland, to 

find an old Algarve which has 
all the charm and pleasure 
found h 

that his predecessors round m 
the whole area just a few years

Ever since the major airlines 
scrapped ihe’ir resuiciive Ad- 
vance Purchase Excursion 
(APEX) feres in favour of a 
new range of excursions, trav- 
ellers heading Down Under 
have never had ii so good. 
These improved-value excur- 
sions have given Australasian- 
bound travellers the widest 
'choice yet of routing and slop- 
over possibilities. 

• 'The new fares have few 
booking restrictions. You can 
book; when you like: change or 
cancel the flights without pen- 
alty. make stopovers and stay 
away for up to one year. The 
only real restriction is that you 
must spend at least 14 days in 
the Asia/Australasian 
region but this is no hard- 

ship for most people. 

With all excursions to 
Australia/New Zealand, the 
date of outbound travel deter- 
mines the fare you pay. Sam- 
ple, return feres wiih British 
Airways and Qantas from 
London to Sydney/ Mel- 
bourne f Brisbane (rates to 
Perth / Darwin arc slightly 
cheaper) are as follows: 

Departure date Season Fare 
Get 1 - Dec 9 shoulder £995 
Dec 10-23 peak £1095 
Dec 24 — 31 off-peak £940 
Jam - 31 shoulder £995 
Feb 1 - 28 off-peak £940 

The big selling point with 
these excursions is flexibility. 
You can either fly out and 
back via the Far East or North 
America, or pay another £100 
and upgrade to a “Circle 

Australia. To Auckland return 
feres, with BA/Air New Zea- 
land (ANZ) are: £1 .095 (shoul- 
der). £1.1 95 (peak) and £1 .040 
(off-peak). Stopovers are al- 
lowed in Singapore. LA and m 
Australia too. if flying with 
BA. Other booking conditions 
are similar to the Australian 

The main airlines are offer- 
ing a “seal sale" between 
November 1 and December 
31. when many of these 
excursions are reduced by 
£ 100 . 

If .you book with a major 
carrier like BA/Qantas/ SM/ 
Cathay Pacific, ensure you get 
full value. Rather than your 
travel agent giving you just a 
ticket, insist that you are 
booked on an added-value 
deal with one of the flight 
specialists like Pound- 
stracher. Jetset or Oriental 

For the same fere, these 
firms throw in extras like flee 
and/or subsidized rail travel 
to the airport, insurance; cabin 
bags, car rental and stopover 
holidays. Added together — 
and depending on your 
circumstances — such goodies 
can easily be worth a couple of 
hundred pounds, hi addition. 
Qantas passengers can avail 
themselves of the 
“Connections" discount card. 

Many travel agents — 
particularly those specializing 
in Australasian travel — can 
quote discounted feres with 
selected airlines. These are a 
good bei if you have sjrnple 
(ravel requirements or maybe

Milkmaids on four legs: the famous herd of Jersey cows stand in front of the Elizabethan manor and (arm of Loseley Park 

Cream and curiosities 

You’ve eaten ; the yoghurt, 
you’re familiar with the ice 
cream — and now you can see 
the house. Loseley Park is not 
just the home of a famous 
herd of Jerseys and the source 
of all those delicious dairy 
products, it is also a very fine 
Elizabethan bouse and it is 
open to the public. 

It was built by one Sir 
William More (a trusted ad- 
viser of Queen Elizabeth I) in 
the 1560s - all to his own 
plansand specifications — and 
his descendants, the More- 
Mofyneux family, still live 
there. As weO as the house and 
the farm and the kitchen 
gardens — compost-grown 
vegetables of course — they 
run a construction company, 
and perhaps. aU this extra- 
mural activity explains their 
refreshingly 'unaggressive 
marketing of the house itselL 
Everything— at least on first 
impression — is in a minor 
key. The house, with its tall 
windows and comfortably 
proportioned gables, is of okl 
grey stone, most of it from a 
nearby abbey probably going 
back eight centuries. The main 
doorway-is small and unasser- 
tive. and there are no external 
fripperies at all Many of the 
outbuildings display the 
charming .feature — .much 
loved-by the late Alec Clifton- 
Taylor — known- as “gal- 
leting”. in which the mortar- 
courses are studded with 
irregular chips of dark stone, 
lending them rustic charm. 

Underneath an archway: a bonne 

with comfortable proportions 

Distance: 754 miles 
Not every Londoner 
get as far as Devon 

r they want to walk 

among cob-walled villages. 
Much nearer is a group of 
villages west of Aylesbury in 
Buckinghamshire where 
high walls, barns, bouses 
and cottages are aO built in 
the local variant of cob called 
“witch ert". „ 

The walk starts m Had- 
denham, a long straggling 
village with three greens and 
countless witchert buildings 
and boundary walls. Starting 
from the green at Church 
End in the south, with its fine 
13th-century church walk, 
through Fort Ead and 
Townsend until at the north 
end head east along a green 

Loseley is one of the few 
stately homes where it is 
impossible to buy a little cloth 
bagful! of pot-pourri, ora ball- 
point pen with the name of the 
house on it. 

Your money can be fir 
better spent in the produce 
shop or the cafe, where all is 
wholesome and home-grown, 
or at least home-made. Even 
the visitors* lavatories are fed 
by spring water. 

The staff - who at peak 
times have to cope with more 
visitors than the facilities can 

really stand — are unfailingly 
cheerful and polite. It must be 
a struggle, especially when 
demand for the tour of the 
ferm — highly recommended 
— is outstripping supply, and 
restless queues are building 
up. Bui Loseley seems lo live 
up to the motto over the inner 
door, Invidiae daudor pateo 
sed semper amico— loosely. “I 
am closed to malice but 
always open to a friend". 

Among the friends who 
came to the house in the early 
days were Elizabeth I and 

James I. More recently Queen 
Mary visited and greatly ad- 
mired the bedspread in the so- 
called Queen's Room — the 
rather small bedroom in 
which Elizabeth is said to have 
slept, in preference to the 
larger but colder principal 
bedchamber. The bedspread — 
William and Mary work - 
survived Queen Mary's ad- 
miration and can still be seen. 

Loseley has a grand if rather 
cluttered hall which boasts 
panelling from Henry VIll’s 
Nonsuch Palace. Some of it is

gated with medieval ridge-

walking south-west along the 
lane to Aston Mullins, leav- 
ing the road at some modem 
farm buildings. 

The path crosses fields 
and pastures to the tiny 
village of Aston Sandford 
which has some witchert 
b uilding s; in front of the 
former vicarage is a long, low 
pantiled former rope walk. 
Past the small church the 
route now follows roads back 
to Haddenham and a well 
earned drink.

Loseley is 2 Vi miles south- 
west of Guildford, the county 
town of Surrey. Now that the 
magnificent High Street is 
largely free. of traffic, Guild- 
ford is a delight. 

The elegant old Gnfldhall 
dominates with its fancy dock 
projecting over the sheet 
There are two fine old pubs — 
the Bull's Head and the Three 
Pigeons - and midway be- 
tween them the handsome 
Angel Hotel, which has a fine 
restaurant and also serves tea 
and coffee. 

. Further up the hill, Guild- 
ford House (1660) is now an 
art gallery. Abbot's Hospital, 
a superb almshouse, was built 
in 1619 by George Abbot — 
Guildford's own Archbishop 

irompe toei! work, showing 
receding corridors which 
would fool nobody — but it is 
very rare. Even rarer - indeed 
unique - is the massive 
chimneypiece in the drawing 
room, a fantastically ornate 
piece of work carved out of a 
single huge slab of chalk. 

Also in the drawing room is 
an astonishing 16th-century 
German cabinet inlaid with 
half a dozen different woods 
to create an astoundingly de- 
tailed picture of a fallen city. 
And there isa pair of maid-of- 
honour chairs whose seats 
may have been worked by 
Elizabeth 1 herself. Under 
their protective netting, they 
are still extraordinarily bright 

Loseley is a house full of 
curiosities that demand dose 
scrutiny. But equal pleasure 
can be had from looking 
overhead at the superb plaster 
ceilings. The occasional 
smoke-detector fits in surpris- 
ingly well among the gilt 
bosses and the family em- 
blems of moorhen, cockatrice 
and mulbeny tree. Out in the 
garden I noticed no moorhens 

— and certainly no cockatrices 

- but there is a very anrient 
mulberry, now lying on its 
side, still clinging to life and 
said to have been planted by. 
yes. Queen Elizabeth herself.

The perils and problems of playing 
a sensible game of Goulash 

“I had a most interesting 
Goulash in Tangiers". 

■ "Isn’t couscous the regional 
dish in that part of.lhe world?” 

Robert Sheehan brushed 
my feeble interruption aside. 
"Because of the luck factor, 
people forget that Goulash 
often provides ah opportunity 
for skilful and original ptey.” 

1 dare say Sheehan is right- 
Indeed in some Parisian 
Clubs ordinary rubber bridge 
has been entirely supplanted 
by Goulash, a variation of 
the game which invariably 
produces wild distributions. 
If my response to Sheehan’s 
enthusiasm was lukewarm, it 
was because whenever I play 
Goulash my bovine antics in 
the bidding are a source oi 
constant amusement, and 
profit to my opponents-

was as good as anything, but 
declarer adroitly demonstrat-

a dub. Now when he played 
a diamond he could not be 
prevented from making three 
of his remaining trumps. 

Sheehan’s genuine admira- 
tion for his opponents’ dum- 
my play was only tempered 
by a sense of guilt about his 
own defence. If instead of 
.discarding a dub he had 
ruffed his partner’s trick and 
returned a trump, not even 
Lord Rennel could have 
contrived to make more than 
two ruffs in dummy, three 
aces and four trumps in his 
own hand. 

ft seems that the expert 
Goulash player must be 
prepared to sacrifice a small 
trump as readily as Karpov 
and Kasparov give up an 
insignificant pawn. 

Jeremy Flint 


Tricks but no treats 

Gamesmanship played little 
or no pari in the London leg of 
the current world champion- 
ship. Kasparov and Karpov 
acted like perfect gentlemen 
and on the rare occasions 
when they came together so- 
cially they even appeared 
quite friendly. Such behaviour 
has often been the exception 
rather than the norm, as 
stories from the days of Fi- 
scher. Spassky and Korchnoi 
amply testily. 

A fascinating example oc- 
curred in the 1891 match 
between Isidor Gunsberg (the 
only member of the Battersea 
Chess Club ever to have 
challenged for the world title) 
and Wilhelm Steinitz. This 
match was played in Man- 
hattan. and of game 16 
Steinitz complained: "On 
move 20 mv opponent set a 
trap, leaving a pawn where it 
could be captured by my 
Queen. Gunsberg placed his 
Knight on h4. then replaced 
the. piece on its original 
square. After a period ot 
thinking and shaking his head, 
as if he had made a serious 

error, he finally played the 
move. I immediately snatched 
the pawn, only lo discover 
that Gunsberg could then win 
my Queen. I complained 
about Gunsbcrg's trick, but he 
insisted it had not been done 

Here is the game which led 
Sieiniiz astray.

If your ears art still numb

• Masters won’t give them any 
... respite. 

It is rather odd in a variety 
ways, not least in its 


apparent conviction that mu- 
« . sic must be supplied non-stop; 
thus when the rather Byronic 
3nd thoroughly accomplished 
. pianist takes a break, a rank of 
'ominously prominent loud- 
speakers immediately begins 
. to belt out numbers from 
’ musicals, light classics and the 
; like. 

This is a surprisingly good 
establishment, though. I say 
surprisingly because apart 
, from the aural assault there's a 
visual one too — for some 
unfathomable reason the 
panelling of the basement 
restaurant, though not of the 
ground floor wine bar. has 
. been marbled. This decorative 
solecism really should be rec- 
tified. for the premises, a 
vaguely “Dutch” house of the 
early 1890s. are handsome 
and grand. 

It would be agreeable, too. if 
the clientele could be re* 
sirictcd. Unfortunately, the 
night l was there a party of a 
.• dozen very loud, very boorish. 

. \cry drunk, young men from 
. the City had been allowed in. 

So far. then, rather un- 
. promising. But the menu and 

• wine list suggest that it has 
pretensions to being a serious 
restaurant, and the standard 

. of cooking justifies the claim. 

There is a lettuce soup 
.. which — rare achievement — 
actually tastes of that veg- 
etable rather than of cream or 
, potatoes or stock. There are 
smoked haddock fillets with a 
cream and chervil sauce, strips 
of beef with a fine mild garlic 
sauce and a fussy garnish of 
' underdone aubergines, ex- 
cellent cheeses (Rcblochon. 
Grattc Paillc. Roquefort and 
so on) and marvellous sweets: 
the summer pudding here is 
splendid and worth crossing 
.. London for. and there is also a 
gimmicky but delicious choc- 
olate mousse with a cara- 
melized sugar top. 

Two other mousses were, 
however, less successful - the 
fish one was nursery' pink and 
seemed to be composed of 
. salmon, cream and nothing 
else, the result being luxurious 
vapidity: and a wild mush- 
room “lerrine” was also 

The range of wines is catho- 
lic and vaguely eccentric — the 
product. 1 guess, of an enthu- 
siastic and quirkily knowl- 
edgeable palate rather than 
one which follows current 
wisdom. Most of it is fairly 
priced, and so too is the set 
dinner at £14.50: stray on to 
. the carte, though, and you 
could get hurt. Two will pay 
. between £50 and £60. depend- 
ing on what they drink. 

At Ognisko Polskie they'll 
dnnk vodka and beer and will 
. probably pay less than £25. 

• The restaurant of the Polish 
Hearth Club — non-members 
welcome - has nothing in 

' common with Masters save 

that it too is within a couple of 
minutes' walk of the Albert 
Hall and is also easy to hurry 
past without noticing it. 

It has recently suffered 
red eco ration but devotees of 
the place should not be 
alarmed — it still recalls the 
dining-room of a rather un- 
fashionable hotel of 30 years 
ago. the son of place where 
bogus majors and frail spin- 
sters whiled away their days in 
forgettable British films. 

The room is long, divided 
by two columns with flashy 
capitals and a row of big pot 
plants (pan of the redeco ra- 
tion). At one end is a bar. at 
the other windows overlook- 
ing Prince's Gardens. 

There is a massive chande- 
lier. a neo-Adam fireplace, 
preponderance of paintwork 
in colours like butterscotch 
and American (an. pastel por- 
traits of inter alia Princess 
Alexandra and the Duchess of 
Argyll. The customers range 
from shabbily genteel emigres, 
whose most innocent 
Conversations appear 
conspiratorial, to fashionable 
young explorers. 

Among the many good 
things about it is the fact that 
women can cat alone: it's 
wolf-free, yob-free zone. 

Other good things are the 
tripe cooked with celery, car- 
rots. parsley in a light bouillon 
— this is the classic flaki of 
Warsaw and is as fine a tripe 
dish as you'll find in London: 

the potato pancakes with sour 
cream: the plain roast duck 
with tart apple puree and 
boiled spuds: anything with 
sauerkraut; the potent Polish 
been the flavoured vodkas; 
the pancakes filled with jam. 

The bad things about the 
place are the curtains which 
look likeoutsized nylon night- 
ies. and the dumb-waiter 
which is actually far from 
mute and sounds like half a 
dozen security consultants 
attempting to break down a 
door it is very worrying and I 
advise you to sit in the north- 
west corner of the restaurant.

Going up in smoke 

In a "good dry east wind” a 
side or salmon will be smoked 
in 24 hours, said William 
Pinney. who smokes his fish 
over oak in a draughty 
wooden smokehouse, sur- 
rounded by fields. Smoke 
puffed out under the eaves 
and blew away into the Suffolk 

Inside, rows of tiny sprats 
threaded on metal rods with 
military precision gleamed 
palest gold. Below them heavy 
sides of salmon, silver revers- 
ing to coral pink, hung on 
blackened bars. In another 
dark chamber fat trout and 
rosy bulging cod roe bathed in 
the sweet, sharp smokey air. 
My admiration of this fragrant 
idyll was shared by a tribe of 
shy feral cats, a mixed assort- 
ment like the fish. 

As well as the smoked fish 
business, started by his father 
Richard, there is the fresh 
fishing business, trawling and 
lobster pots, and an oyster 
farm. The produce of all three 
accounts for the success of the 
Butley-Orfbrd Oysterage, a 
small retail shop and a bus- 
tling restaurant where plain, 
fresh, no-frills fish is served to 
customers who can be both- 
ered driving miles to get there 
and. if they haven't booked, 
very likely waiting for a table. 

Smoked salmon is cut to 
order and served as it is. 
Smoked cod roe comes with 
hot toast to sinead it on and at 
lunchtime, the lobsters for 
salad are so freshly cooked 
they are barely cool. 

Smoked salmon needs a 
minimum of trimmings, just 
good brown bread, sweet but- 
ter and freshly ground black 
pepper. Nonetheless it does go 
exceptionally well with eggs in 
many variable combinations ■ 
which make use of the in- 
evitable offeuts. These, com- 
ing from the outer edges of the 
side, may in these days of 
lightly cured fish, be more 
robustly flavoured than more

or buttermilk 

Chop the smoked salmon in 
fine dice. Heap it in a serving 
dish, cover and chilL 
Hard-boil, cool, peel and 
finely chop the eggs. Put the 
chopped egg in a serving dish, 
cover and chill until needed. 

Whip the cream and stir in 
the yoghurt chives and 
seasoning. Chill until needed. 

To make the pancakes, sift 
the flour, cream of tartar, 
bicarbonate of soda and salt 
into a bowl and make a well in 
the centre. Break the egg into 
the welt and gradually beat in 
enough of the milk to make a 
thick, smooth batter. 

Failing a cast iron griddle to 
make the pancakes like Scotch 
pancakes, use a heavy frying 
pan. Heat it slowly and thor- 
oughly then grease it lightly. 
Drop tablespoonfuls of the 

baiter on to the griddle, spac- 
ing them well apart. When 
bubbles rise to the surface and 
the underside is pale golden 
brown, turn the pancakes and 
cook them briefly on the other 
side. Grease the griddle spar- 
ingly between each batch of 
pancakes. This quantity of 
batter will make about 18. 

Make the pancakes immedi- 
ately before they are to be 
eaten — keeping the early 
batches warm on a plate dvera 
pan of hot water, covered with 
a napkin. 

To serve, let each diner 
spread a blob of the chive 
cream on a pancake and top it 
with a spoonful -of chopped 
smoked salmon and a sprin- 
kling of egg. 

Traditional hot smoked fish 
like trout, most smoked mack- 
erel, sprats, budding and cel 
can be served alone, or in 
combination. A wedge of 
lemon to squeeze over the 
fattier fish, mackerel, eel and 
sprats, does, not come amiss. 
With trout a savoury cream, 
flavoured lightly with horse- 
radish, is even better. 

Horseracfish cream 


4 tablespoons strained 
Greek yoghurt . 

4 tablespoons double cream 

1 teaspoon lemon juice 

1 tablespoon horseradish 

Salt and freshly ground 
black pepper 

Beat all the ingredients to- 
gether. Turn the mixture into 
a serving dish, cover and chill 
until needed. • 

Smoked haddock and po- 
tatoes marry well in a tra- 
ditional Scots - soup 
unmarketably named cullen 
skink. Whether it is made stew 

thick or broth thin, handsome 
flakes of fish are usually 
visible. I have also come 
across a purted variation of 
the soup with added cream 
which was excellent 
For flavour, choose Finnan 
haddock on the bone in 
preference to golden cutlets. 
Originally Finnan haddock, 
named afler the village of 
Findon near Aberdeen, were 
heavily .smoked over peat or 
seaweed. The milder modern 
fish, smoked and brined for 
reasons of taste not preserva- 
tion. is probably a great 
improvement on its 

Cream of smoked haddock 

Serves four 


30g (1 oz) butter 

1 onion, finely chopped 

1 Finnan haddock 

600ml (1 pint) milk 

150ml 04 
potato (fe 



Salt and freshly ground 
black pepper 

3 tablespoons cream 

1 tablespoon finely 
chives or parsley 

Melt the butler in a heavy pan 
and soften the onion on a low 
heat. Cut the fish into large 
pieces and add them to the 
pan with enough cold water 
barely to cover the fish. Bring 
to the boil and simmer, cov- 
ered, for about 20 minutes 
then remove the fish. When it 
is cool enough to handle flake 
fish and return it to the pan 
together with the milk, 
mashed potato, and salt and 
pepper to taste. Reheat and 
just before serving, stir in the 
cream. Scatter chopped chives 
or parsley on each serving. 

To make the smooth, pu- 
rred- version of this soup, sieve 
or process the fish and liquid 
together before adding the 
potato. -

Now is the time to ornament 
the autumn garden — by 
planting bulbs and corms. 
Colchicums should be planted 
immediately. Co/chicum 
auiumnalc. the most popular, 
produces pinky-lilac crocus 
flowers for every corm. Don't 
expect any leaves: they are 
only produced in spring and 
arc large, to feed giant corms. 

This native plant is at its 
best as William Cobbeti saw it 
during one of his rural rides — 
growing plentifully in grass 
beneath orchard trees. There 
are attractive white single and 
double forms and a double 
pink. Rascuni plenum . which 
looks like a terrestrial pink 
water lily. Planted about three 
inches deep in a good soil, 
they thrive in sun or shade. 
Connoisseurs should look for 
Cagrippimmi. which gives 
chequered violet, star-shaped 

The Saffron crocus is a true 
crocus. Crocus saliva, which 
has a rose-lilac flower, darkly 
veined, with bright golden- 
orange stigmas, for which it 
used to be widely cultivated in 
England It is commemorated 
in the name and arms of 
Saffron Walden. Don't bask 
on producing a marketable 
amount in your garden: it 
takes about 4.300 flowers to 
produce an ounce of saffron. 
Sometimes tricky to grow, it 
docs better if fed regularly, but 
likes a warm summer to ripen 
its corms. I know of a variety 
called Cartwrightianus. which 
is smaller and more tolerant of 
cool, damp summers, but 
haxc not seen il 

Stern bergia flowers are also 
cracus-iikc and sometimes 
flower into winter. The best 
known is Stentlvrjpa Utica. 
which is also the easiest to 
grow but needs deep-planting 
(about 6 inches) in a sunny 
position and dry ish. well- 
drained soil.

Cheers to the 
sherry revival 

Unfashionable, undervalued 
and underestimated, sherry is 
the least-loved wine in any 
traders' portfolio. It Has been 
consistently overlooked, with 
fickle British wine drinkers 
turning first to vermouth and 
more recently to cocktails and 
other mixed drinks. 

But sherry, despite those 
dull, sticky and often luke- 
warm schooners served in 
pubs and the worst sort of 
hotel restaurant is not an 
unexciting drink. True, super- 
market sherry priced at £3 and 
under is unlikely to thrill most 
tastebuds — but spend twice 
that amount and all the in- 
tense. aromatic nutty glory of 
a great sherry will be yours. 
But do not make the mistake 
of believing that you can hang 
on to a bottle for ever without 
it deteriorating. 

Once the bonk has been 
opened, fino sherry fades 
within a matter of days: rare 
dry genuine amontillados lose 
much of their piquant pun- 
gency after a few weeks on the 
sideboard: and even the 
richer, sweeter oloroso and 
cream sherries start to lack life 
after several months. 

The collapse of the giant 
Rumasa empire in 1983. with 
its extensive sherry interests, 
did linle to help the drink's 
good name in Britain (its 
principal export market), as a 
flood of cheap low-quality 
sherry was then dumped on 
the market. 

The Spanish were angry to 
find, once the EEC entry 
-negotiations were over, that 
although South Africa and 
Australia were no longer al- 
lowed to use the terra sherry in 
the EEC. sweet ersatz wines 
from British and. Cyprus 
“sherry” producers could con- 
tinue to use this term. 

But although the unremark- 
able sherries continue to give 
this blended. fortified wine a 
bad name, there are signs that 
a few wine merchants are 
beginning to take it seriously. 

Berry Bros & Rudd are. for 
example, bullish about the 
future of sherry; their current 
offer declares boldly: "It is no 
exaggeration to talk, as some 
people have done, of the 
renaissance of sherry". Fight- 
ing stuff, and probably a shade 
optimistic when those cleverly 
marketed pale cream sherries 
are still-the only sector of the 
market that is growing. 

Sheny and the Spanish 
deserve some success after 
their recent troubles and let us 
hope that Berry's optimism is 
confirmed and safes do start to 
pick up again in this country. 
Certainly Berry’s new range of 
sherries from four different 
producers, and two starry 
almacenista sherries, should 
help restore its reputation. 

Almacenista sherries are 
those that have been bought 
by small private firms or 
individuals in Jerez who store 
and mature them in their 
cellars. Dry and unblended, 
these fine sherries are only 

available in limited quantities 
and bear both the name of the 
shipper and the firm or man 
who cellared it. 

Berry's new ManzaniUa de 
Sanlucar. from the best pro- 
ducer in Sanlucar de 
Barramada — Antonio 
Barbadillo. with its vibrant 
nose and salty taste is a good 
buy at £3.75. So too is the soft 
ripe and appealing Amon- 
tillado from Miguel Gomez 
(£3.90). Finer still is the 
almacenista Amontillado del 
Puerto (£6.90) from Gonzalez 
& Cia. shipped by Enijlio 
Lusiau ■ 

Warming amontillados are 
much more suitable ; for 
September tippling than either 

finos or manzanillas and 
Comey & Barrow have a fine 
Amontillado de Sanlucar from 
Antonio Barbadillo (£5.29) 
whose raisiny bouquet ahd 
smokey taste would cheer up 
any cold September evening. 
As would their superb Bi- 
centenary Amontillado from 
Garvey (£724) whose pale 
brown colour and' rich dry 
walnut taste is as fine a glass of 
amontillado as any discerning 
drinker could hope “ifor 
(Comey* Barrow. 12 Hemet 
Row. London EC I ). 

Delirious, dry oloroso* are- 
now perhaps as difficult to 
find as dry amontillados. But 
a wonderful exception is 
Valdespino's Fine Dry 
Oloroso. El Corregiador Viejo, 
stocked by Adnams (The 
Crown, Southwoid, Suffolk). 
It is expensive at £7.48. but 
who could resist its tangy 
walnut flavour- and lingering 
piquant finish? Not I. Here's 
to the renaissance of sherry!

The art and craft of hi-tech glass 

itt glass of '86 has ram* nF tt .. ... ^ipiriiil I OmtoMAg* 

The glass of '86 has come of 
age. After years of concentrat- 
es on form and colour, 
Stossmakers are now blowing, 
engraving, sandblasting and 
laminating pictures and sculp- 
tures that lift studio glass from 
craft to art. 

There is a feeling in the air 
for figurative glass. Some of 
the pieces are simply dec- 
orative - moulded pre-Ro- 
man heads, multi-textured 
wall plaques. laiger-ihan-Iife 
blown figures — but many 
retain the functional shapes of 
glass bowls, plates and goblets 
embellished with “drawings", 
.. The largest collection of 
such gEass is at Coleridge in 
London. There, work by the 
best of established British 
glassmakers — including An- 
thony Stern. Chris Comins 
and Pauline Solven — is 
shown with pieces by the 
internationally known names 
Sam Herman and Ann WolflL 
and up-and-coming young 
glass artists Fiona Taylor and 
Chris Twiss. 

Three years ago. when 
Adam Aaronson opened his 
ambitious glass gallery at 192 
Piccadilly, there was no in- 
dication that any but the most 
avid collectors would be pre- 
pared to spend up to £2,000 on 
a glass ornament. Today he 
finds it difficult to keep up 
with demand. 

To overcome the problem 
he has opened the first hi-tech 
glass workshop in the country 
with an electric furnace and is 
offering the sort of facilities to

One of the experimental 
artists working regularly in the 
studio is Chris Twiss who is 
creating an edition of 10 heads 
in moulded layers of shaded 
green glass. The original face 
was life-cast from a fellow 
student and each version, like 
a mysterious face gazing 
through water, is at a slightly 
different angle, creating 10

Another specialist shop 
called Glass Designs has been 
established at 17 Barton 
Street. Bath (0225 62601). The 
owner, Martin Lusmore. 
started 18 months ago by 
showing a good deal of Kosta 
Boda glass which he had 
admired when working in 
Scandinavia. Now he is giving 
most of his space to British 
makers and his current ex- 
hibition shows the work of 
five artists: Rachel Woodman, 
Neil Wilkin. Chris Comins, 
Chris Thornton and Morag 

Morag Gordon's work con- 
centrates most Strongly on the 
current figurative mood. The 

slender twining male and fe- 
male shapes all tell a story — 
either of joy or despair — and 
are achieved by etching 
through several layers of col- 
oured glass to produced subtle 
shades of midnight blues and 
turquoise. Prices in the -ex- 
hibition. which continues un- 
til October 4. are from £15 to 

Other artists whose work is 
on permanent exhibition at 
Glass Designs include Cath- 
erine Hough — formerly at the 
Glasshouse in London, and 
Peter Layton and Siddy Lang- 
ley — both at the London 
Glassblowing Workshop in 
Rolherhilbe. All are highly 
acclaimed artists but are pre- 
sented here in a relaxed and 
welcoming atmosphere. 

“I have always felt that 
some multi-media galleries 
are too intimidating", says 
Martin Lusmore. '’I just want 
to create a pleasant place for 
people to be able to appreciate 
glass even if they don’t know 
much about it."

torchwork heads, £125. Below: bowl blown by 
Deborah Fladgate and engraved by Ronald Pennell at

Tina Turner: Break Every 
Rule (Capitol EST 201 B) 

True Stories is a collection of 
songs taken from the film of 
the same name directed by 
David Byrne, and rarely have 
the Talking Heads vocalist 
and his band seemed in more 
relaxed and vibrant form. 

The film, and hence the 
album, was inspired by maga- 
zine and newspaper clippings 
that Byrne had collected over 
the years profiling the “un- 
believable yet true” stories of 
ordinary people, and such 
material has provided the 
perfect muse for Byrne’s tra- 
ditional musical persona, that 
of the distanced commentator 
observing the surreal details of 
mundane lifestyles. 

Retaining the back-to-ba- 
sics four-piece line-up that 
characterized 1 9 US's Little 
Creatures, they embark with 
an energetic rough and tumble 
called “Love For Sale". The 
guitars crunch with gravelly 
bravado repeatedly givmg way 
to Chris Frantz’s minimalist 
two-bar drum breaks, and one 
recalls that this is the same 
band that came to prominence 
in 1977 with contemporaries 
such as The Ramones and 

But they now purvey a 
wealth of stylistic variations: ' 
there are Cajun inflections in 
“Hey Now”, voodoo chants 
and varied percussion on 
“Papa Legba”, the pedal steel 
guitar sound of Nashville on 
“People Like Us” and even a 
waltz-time ballad of poignant 
charm, “Dream Operator”, 
which finds Byrne slipping 
into an occasional bhiesey 

There has been a lot of fuss 
surrounding Paul Simon's 
GracehuxL Simon, who has 
recorded in the past with 
Jamaican and South Ameri- 
can musicians, has here 
collaborated with the South 
African musical fraternity, 
thus defying the cultural boy- 
cott sponsored by the UN and 
enthusiastically embraced by 
the great majority of rock acts. 

His argument, that he 
wishes to draw wider attention 
to the charms ofjndigenous 
African music, is best vin- 

in vibrant form: singer and film-director David Byrne of Tailring Heads 

dicated by “Homeless”, an 
undiluted lullaby, much of it 
written in Zuiu and sung by 
Ladysmith Black Mambazo, 
an eminent 10-piece South 
African church group. 

For most of the album 
though, Simon has tended to 
co-opt the rhythms and 
sounds of Africa to lend a 
seductive ethnic frisson to his 
light, haunting melodies and 
unmistakably American lyr- 
ics. The narrative of “Gum- 
boots”, where he discusses 
relationship problems in “a 

taxi heading dowmown”, sub- 
merges the accordion 
mbaqanga (“township jive”) 
soundtrack beneath a Woody 
AHen scenario. 

It is an enthralling and 
original stylistic device that 
would doubtless have earned 
Simon many resounding ac- 
colades had be gone, say, to 
Zimbabwe to execute it, and 
Graceland is certainly his best 
album far many years. 

While I have never been a 
fan of Elvis Costellb’ssplutter- 
ing lyrical broadsides, his 

ability to right his targets with 
accuracy and bury them in 
withering scorn is usually 
second to none. Bui there is an 
untypical lack of focus on 
Blood and Chocolate, both in 
the songs and in Nick Lowe's 
murky production. 

The Attractions sound as 
though they are bashing about 
in a scrapyard during 
“Uncomplicated”, and there is 
an aura of seedy dilapidation 
in the droning instrumenta- , 
tion on the seu-pjjying.“Poor 1 

Things are certainly looking 
bad when on “Tokyo Storm 
Warning” Costello seeks in- 
spiration from themes already 
well covered by Joe Jackson 
on his Big World album, not 
to mention borrowing the 
melody from the Monkees' 
“Last Train to Clarksville”. 

“Battered Old Bird” and 
“Home Is Where You Hang 
Your Head” are maudlin 
songs peopled with morose, 
cob webbed characters and the 
insular mood suggests that 
Costello wrote the album 
while confined to his bedroom 
with a bout of musical 

The Human League, on the 
other hand, sound as though 
they found the inspiration for 
Crash during an extended 

Employing the renowned 
American soul producers 
Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis 
to guide the peculiarly English 
vocal and instrumental man- 
nerisms of Philip Oakey's 
synth-pop group Iras resulted 
in a substantial renaissance in 
the Human League's music. 
The synthesizer lines lift off 
like rockets during “Swang” 
and there is a new, confident 
groove underpinning glossy 
dance floor anthems like 
“Jam" and “Parti'". 

Jam and Lewis co-wrote the 
album's best song: “I Need 
Your Loving” and Lewis had 
a hand in the recent hit 
“Human” but this does not 
detract from the group's own 
notable achievement in 
successfully recasting a tired 
formula to produce such a 
fresh, arresting new collection. 

Tina Turner has had her 
songwriting boys out looking 
for new excitements; but none 
of the songs on Break Every 
Buie manage to do anything of 
the sort. Terry Britten and 
Graham Lyle contribute reli- 
able songs about typical 
males, some boys and the 
Right Man, all written accord- 
ing to the Private Dancer 
blueprint, while a David 
Bowie song “Girls” and Bryan 
Adams's “Back Where You 
Started” leave Miss Turner

Llncommerciality (Ail music 
ALMS 2} 

An imaginative reinterpreta- 
tion of seven compositions by 
Duke Ellington and bra 
collaborator Billy Strayhom, 
The African Flower show 
jazz's recent post-modernist 
tendency in its best light, 
affirming the continuing rele- 
vance of the music's tradition 
at the same time as making 
plain the potential for growth 
and development 

James Newton, who ar- 
ranged the tunes for an en- 
semble of 11 musicians in 
various ’• configurations, is 
probably the first authentic 
virtuoso of the jazz flute: 
Others, from Frank Wess to 
Sam Rivers, have found it 
difficult to reconcile the 
instrument's rather passive 
temperament with the ex- 
pressive urgency of the idiom; 
probably Roland Kirk, who 
sang through it and hummed 
into it and generally treated it 
as anything but a flute, came 
closest to a solution. 

Unlike the others, Newton 
is not a converted saxo- 
phonist He starts with the 
advantages of a ravishing tone 
and a facility that allows him 
to play anything he can imag- 
ine. This leads him rather 
predictably into a highly dec- 
orative unaccompanied treat- 
ment of“Sophisticated Lady”, 
but more satisfying^ into the 
rhythmically charged treat- 
ment of “Virgin Jungle", on 
which the combination of 
flute and John Blake’s dry- 
toned violin with Rick Rozie’s 
deep bass ostinato gives the 
ensemble the rustic air of a 
Cuban charanga band. 

The vibraphonist Jay 
Hoggard and the pianist Ro- 
land Hanna make rewarding 
contributions, nowhere more 
so than in their exciting duet 
on “Cottontail”, propelled by 
the curiously ascetic drum- 
ming of Pheeroan ak LafC Olu 
Data's homageTo the “talking 
trumpet” style of Bubbe Miley 
is the highlight of a well 
planned version of “Black and 
Tan Fantasy", while ■plenty — 
perhaps too much — is heard 
of Arthur Blythe’s skinny- 
toned alto saxophone. 

Not all of the instrumental 
combinations blend happily, 
and the bizarre Strayhom song 
-Strange Feeling”, featuring 
the baritone voice of Mill 
Grayson, is a regrettable 
aberration, but on the whole 
Newton has done a service to 
music that represents the 
more exotic side of Ellington's 

Beautiful balance: Slide Hampton leads a relaxed quintet 

nature. While The African 
Flower represents the re- 
activated Blue Note label on 
the trail of new music, Stanley 
Turremine’s Jubilee Shout is 
the sort of fare for which the 
company became famous: 
loamy modem jazz from the 
post-Parker, pre-Coltrane era, 
utterly without pretensions. 
Not many months ago 1 was 
praising the reissue of 
Turrentme’s remarkable Blue 
Hour, and this latest release, a 
1962 sextet session available 
for the first time in its original 

Cymbals that 
have never 
sounded as lush 
and silvery 

form, is further evidence that, 
for from being the mere solid 
citizen for which he is usually 
taken, the leader is in feet one 
of the most outstanding tenor 
saxophonists in all of jazz. 

There is nothing in the least 
“original” about Turren tine’s 
approach. What makes him 
gnat is his perfect sense of 
swing, his indomitable tone, 
the authority of his phrasing 
and the endless vitality of his 
ideas. He gels fine support 
here from the guitar of Kenny 
Burrell and the piano of Sonny 

. Criss Cross,, a discriminat- 
ing Dutch concern, is in the 
business of carrying on where 
Blue Note left off more than 
20 years ago, recording solid, 
uptight modem jazz with the 
sort of consistency that en- 
ables customers to buy its 
product unheard with "com- 
plete confidence. - 

Just as Blue Note began 
with the basis of the richly 
three-dimensional recorded 
sound achieved by the en? 
gineer Rudy Van Gelder, so 
Criss Cross benefits from the 
skill of Max Bolleman at 

Studio 44 m Monster, a small 
coastal town near the Hague. 
Even BiUy Higgins's prover- 
bially well- tempered cymbals 
have never sounded as lush 
and silvery as they do 
throughout Roots, a substan- 
tial quintet set led by the 
trombonist Slide Hampton 
and featuring the tenor saxo- 
phonist Clifford Jordan. 

Although apparently exe- 
cuted with the minimum of 
advance planning, the session 
betrays no sense of waste or 
indulgence. The five men 
swing with beautiful balance 
through four extended pieces, 
imbuing even the most pro- 
tracted solos with coherence 
and continuity. 

Billy Jenkins is a mildly 
eccentric but marvellously 
gified young British guitarist 
who served an apprenticeship 
in rock but now works in a sort 
of distantly orbital relation- 
ship with jazz. Uncom- 
mndalily. a release on his 
own label, sees him leading a 
sextet through a programme 
ranging from thecompellingly 
understated funk of 
“Brilliant” to an eerie lone 
poem called “Bhopal”. 

Jenkins, who in an earlier 
incarnation as a pastieheur 
proved himself adept at both 
the rapid-fire jazz-rock of 
John McLaughlin and single- 
action twang of Duane Eddy, 
plays several outstanding so- 
los here, using the swoops and 
glides of the slide-guitar tech- 
nique to add a surrealistic 
edge to the music The sub- 
tlety of the almost subliminal 
phrases with which he directs 
and encourages lain Ballamy's 
tenor saxophone and Dai 
Pritchard’s bass clarinet 
through “Bhopal” is an 
impressive example of a man 
in absolute command of his 
materials. Vibrant in a way 
lhai often recalls the spirit of 
the late Charles Mingus, 
Uncommercialityis an accom- 
plished and sometimes 
provocative piece of work.

Billy Wilder decided to make 
The Lost Weekend (Channel 
4, tomorrow, 10.40pm- 
12.30am) after reading 
Charles Jackson's best-selling 
novel during a train journey 
from Los Angeles to New 
York. Hollywood was less 

After all a film about an 
alcoholic driven to the edge of 
snicidje seemed hardly the 
upbeat stuff of which box- 
office hits were made, foil 
bolstered by the success of his 
previous film. Double Indem- 
nity', and finding an influential 
ally in Paramount. Wilder was 
able to go ahead. 

The casting of the central 
character, however, was de- 
cided by the studio. Wilder 
favoured Jose Ferrer, just 
starting to make his name on 
Broadway, but Paramount in- 
sisted on its more “bankable” 
contract star. Ray Mi Hand. 

For Mifland it was an 
opportunity at last to sink his 
teeth into a juicy part after a 
career spent mainly as light 
romantic leads. Though 
friends told him he was 
committing professional sui- 
cide, the performance won 
him an Oscar and remained 
his finest achievement.

subjects were still barred from 
the cinema. Wilder and hisco-

forced to make one significant

had so brilliantly exploited in 
Double Indemnity. 

When the Oscar ceremony 
came along, and 77j<' Lost 
Weekend gained seven 
nominations. Wilder jokingly 
threatened an acceptance 
speech in which he thanked 
W.c. Fields for providing the 
inspiration for the alcoholic 
hero. But Hollywood offered 
plenty of other models, from 
Ra>mond Chandler - who 
worked on Double Indemnity- 
- to Charles Brackett's wife. 

Wilder won two Oscars, lor

references to Fields were tact- 
fully omitted.

to gnat acclaim last year as a

median for which it was 
originally commissioned. The 
11-part serial starts on Mon-

Michael Hordern plays the 
Rev Shncox, a country vicar 
who combines socialist prin-

possible sense, it should Wow 
a few minds. 

The theme is drugs derived 
from plants and animals and it 
-turns out to be a much bigger 
subject than most of us could 
have imagined. Hardly any- 
thing is spared: not Father 
Christmas and not even the 
Bible, which according to an 
expert, John Allegro, is rich in 
symbolic references. 

At the heart of it all are 
mushrooms, and toadstools 
and the evil toad with its skin

hallucinations. The mythol-

time from 1920 to 2020 and in

A rriving a little late at 
Robert McC rum’s 
office at Faber & 
Faber, I find him 
upstairs, sitting opposite our 
photographer behind the 
chairman's desk. The light, 
McCrum explains hastily, is 
better here. 

Outside the door his dimin- 
utive. voraciously unread 
chairman. Matthew Evans, 
gurgles that "Robert has obvi- 
ously taken over”. His own 
mind happens to be on other 
things. “I'm waiting" he ex- 
plains wolfishly, in what has 
become a long-standing joke, 
"to be made the chairman of 
the BBC." 

The time could not be more 
ripe. In one of Evans's canny 
moves which has made Faber 
& Faber the publishing house 
of the moment, a text written 
by McCrum — the firm's 
editorial director — will be 
jointly published with the 
BC to accompany a nine- 
part television series on The 
Story of English. 

Relinquishing the 
desk. McCrum jabs at the lift 
button. "Do you realize there 
are more people (earning En- 
glish in China than speaking it 
in the Stales? And that’s a real 
statistic", he adds. Not like the 
one about how English has a 
bigger vocabulary than the 
three major European lan- 
guages stuck together; or even, 
perhaps, how one in every 166 
words in Le Monde is English. 

Walking into the late sum- 
mer morning, McCrum ex- 
plains how the project began. 

A language which 
is conquering the 
world deserves its 

infiltrated Russian, with 
words like seksapil (sex ap- 
peal) and noh-khau (know- 

own history, says 
Robert McCrum 


He does so with the dancing 
hands and sharp darting eyes 
of a young man (he is 33) 
convulsed by an energy be 
cannot contain. 

“Seven years ago I was 
reading V. S. Naipaul's A 
Bend in the River. Suddenly it 
struck me that there I was, in 
New York, reading a book 
about disappearing Africans 
by a Trinidadian of Indian 
extraction. I thought I would 
like to read something on the 
history of English languages 
but there was nothing. Every- 
thing concerned the history of 
English in England." 

So McCrum wrote a 34-page 
outline charged with lofty 
sentences like “in the tradition 
of Civilization ", and took it to 
Brian Wenham. a man who 
really might be made chair- 
man of the BBC- Wenham saw 
the potential in McCrum’s 
naive treatment and has 
backed it all the way. 

“We were lucky to find 
ourselves in the middle of a 
breaking story”. McCrum ex- 
plains. Only last month the 
University of Geneva inaugu- 
rated a chair in World English 
— to keep tabs, presumably, on 
a language that has even 

Following the tracks made 
by our language, McCrum and 
Bill Cran, his producer, trav- 
elled the round comers of the 
earth from Papua New Guinea 
to the H-Blocks of Northern 
Ireland where they were ar- 
rested interviewing a former 
internee about prison 
Gaelic. “There are language 
fossils everywhere. On Tan- 
gier Island, if you shut your 
eyes you could have been in 
Cornwall. In Newfoundland, 
you could be in Ireland. While 
on the islands off South 
Carolina, where I couldn't 
understand a word, you could 
be anywhere. 

“Invariably there was a 
local expert on the language, 
and not always the local bore.”

She has written a gargantuan 
"prequel" to the series which 
viewers should, she feels, 
swallow first as it lays the 
roots of the storyline. But she 
cannot stop writing. “I'm 
trying to cut the book down - 
it's getting away from me". ^ 
she told me frantically. “The

with dread at the 
number of low-brow

we're all educated in the 
rightness and wrongness of

expressions like fireball and

become so is an accident of 
history. “Never before has one

Today the engine-room of 
English has shifted to Califor-

Act — which has resulted in 
public school, received 
pronunciation becoming the 
standard accent of the middle 
classes — there was no pres- 
sure to conform. “A roll-call of 
English literature shows that 
Shakespeare spoke with a 
Warwickshire accent that 
Keats was a cockney. Johnson 
had a Midlands bun- and 
Wordsworth spoke in a 
Cumberland voice." 

Having written three fine 
novels as taut and jerky as 

himself McCrum has obvious 
ambitions to add his own 
name to the lisL And rather 
than becoming an “English 
language groupie” he might 
soon give everything up — 
even the view from that top 
floor desk — to do so.

Tbe Bishop of Durham, after his speech 
to the general synod in July, received a n 
ovation from its members. This was, I 
believe, an endorsement of his own 
personal integrity and commitment. 
The warmth of that reeption does not, 1 
hope, inhibit a friendly but critical 
appraisal of some of tbe arguments 
which he used. 

Some points need only be made en 
passant. “Our God. so it is forceably 
argued by some, must have performed 
certified and guaranteed miracles in 
order that the Incarnation cait have 
happened and the Resurrection be die 
real and glorious explosion of divine 
! power that we all believe it to be". I do 
hot think That this point need detain us 
long, because I personally- do not know 
anyone who makes such a dairn. 

A second point which we may 
consider only in passing is Ihe dairn that 
“knockdown miracles" are contrary to 
what we know of the purpose and 
character of God. As the Bishop of 
Durham said: "God ‘made it dear that 
he is not a mumpbalist God who 
produces miracul ous arguments". We 
might well agree with the bishop here, 
and yet hold that such a statement has 
nothing to do with belief in virginal 
conception or the bodily resurrection. 

Much more important than these 
matters, however, is tbe question posed 
by the Bishop ofDurftanv “Is our God 
worth believing in?" Lei me put the 
moral point in the bishop’s own words: 

"We are faced with the claim that 
God is prepared to work knockdown 
physical miracles in' order to let a select 
number of people into the sec r et of his 
incarnation, resurrection and salvation, 
but he is not prepared to use such 
methods to deliver from Auschwitz, 
prevent Hiroshima, overcome famine, 
or bring about a 'bloodless transforma- 
tion of apartheid. 

" Such a God is surely a cubic idoL 
That is to say.- he is a false and 
misdev eloped picture of the true and 
gracious God drawn up by would-be 
worshippers who have gone dan- 
gerously astray. If such a god is not a 

cubic idol produced by mistaken and 
confused worshippers, but actually ex- 
ists. then he must be the very devil". 

In the first place, the birth, death and 
resurrection of Jesus were not "in order 
to let a select number of people into the 
secret — " Jesus died for the sins of the 
whole world. According to Ephesians, 
his death and resurrection were of 
cosmic significance. 

In the second place, the “event" of 
Christ is a salvation event However 
terrible may be the catastrophes whicb 
are the result of natural events or 
human folly and wickedness, tbe salva- 
tion of mankind is far, Sir more 
important. On such an “event" lies the 
whole destiny of humanity. 

No one in their senses could say that 
Auschwitz took place in order to effect 
man's eternal salvation. On the con- 
trary. Auschwitz was a horrendous 
attempt at mass genocide carried out by 
wicked and mind-crazed human beings. 

All I am saying is that if I were to be 
condemned to one of those appalling 
death camps, I would hope above all to 
die assured of the goodness of God and 
his promise to mankind of eternal life. 

Third, Auschwitz. Hiroshima and 
apartheid (to mention three of the four 
“objections" to which the Bishop of 
Durham alluded) were all caused 
through (he wickedness of human 
beings. They were aB the result of that 
■ freedom which God has given to human 
beings, and of which the bishop (rightly) 
thinks so highly. 

But it is freedom to do evil as much as 
it is freedom to commit ourselves to 
God in love, and wc have to bear the 
consequences, even if, in the words of 
post-Auschwjtz theologians, these seem 
like an "interruption" of divine 

The fourth example which the bishop 
gives concerns famine. It would be 
better, he suggests, for God to prevent 
famine than to effect “laser-like 
miracles" at the Incarnation and 

If God ordains the planet to evolve in 

arcordancc with Die natural laws be has 
ordained. 1 do not see how he could 
interfere in particular cases to prevent 
famine. Famine is terrible indeed for 
those who suffer or die from ft. But is 
not eternal salvation in the end more 
important than food? Is the higher 
priority given to food a sign of a 
secularised church? 

There is a final and, to me, important 
point to be added. I do not see bow you 
can have a Doctrine of Incarnation 
without at the same time asserting a 
Doctrine of Providence. If God truly 
became man, that is to say. if God the 
Father truly united his Son with a 
human being so that manhood was 
assumed by God. then it cannot have 
happened by accident It cannot have 
been a random event. It cannot have 
taken place by purely natural means. 

In other words, whether or not the 
Incarnation and Resurrection look 
place with “laser-like miracles", a 
miracle took place for us men and for 
our salvation. 

Surely the bishop's moral question 
needs rephrasing: "Are God's miracles 
of the Incarnation and tbe Resurrection 
credible, however they took place, if 
God did not intervene at Auschwitz. 
Hiroshima and the rest?" 

Indeed there is no easy answer. But 
perhaps at (cast there is the outline of an 
answer if we say that the miracles of the 
Incarnation and Resurrection make 
possible the credibility of God. For if 
God in Christ had not identified himself 
with suffering and vulnerability', if be 
had not opened himself to evil in its 
most virulent for. if he had not suffered 
the consequences and yet been found 
triumphant over death and evil, then 
(for me at least) God would not be 
credible as God: then indeed he would 
be at best a cultic idol or at worst the 
very devil.

Establishment of care for 
the mentally ill 

Miss Rob in a Addis, QBE. 
who helped to establish 
MIND, the main British orga- 
nization caring for the mental- 
K ill in Britain, and who was 
one of the first psychiatric 
social workers, died on Sep- 
tember 5. aged 86. 

She was born in Edinburgh 
on April 20. 1900, the fourth 
child of Sir Charles and Lady 
Addis, and educated at St 
Felix School. Southwold. She 
read history al Lady Margaret 
Hall. Oxford, but was prevent- 
ed by ill health from taking her 

In 1935 she resumed her 
studies, this lime at the Lon- 
don School of Economics, 
which had just introduced a 
psychiatric social work course, 
the first of its kind. After 
graduating she went to work 
with Dr William Moodie and 
Dr John Bowlby at the 
Canonbury Clinic, the first 
child guidance clinic. Child 
care was a field in which she 
maintained a lifelong interest. 

At the beginning of the war 
she worked with severely dis- 
turbed evacuee children, be- 
coming by 1942 a regional 
organizer of ihe Provisional 
National Council for Mental 
Health, set up by the govern- 
ment to provide aftercare 
serv ices for pschiatric casual- 
ties of the war. 

In 1946 she became a 
regional organizer of the Na- 
tional Association for Mental 
Health (later MIND), the 
organization which evolved 
out of the Provisional Nation- 
al Council. 

in 1948. she helped to form 
the World Federation for 
Mental Health, which is in- 
debted to her. not only for 40 
years of work but, as with 
MIND, because of her faith in 
its cause and its future. 

Her expertise was valued 
not onlv by MIND but also by 

manv other bodies. She was 
one 'of the firs: pvschtatnc 
social workers in Britain. One 
of her main contributions was 
to help to set up the Young- 
husband working party m 
1955. which laid the founda- 
tions of present day social 
work training. 

In 1960 she became Deputy 
General Secretary of MIND, 
and after 1%5. the year of her 
formal retirement, she re- 
mained a strong influence on 
the organization, being elected 
Vice President. She was ap- 
pointed OBE in that year. 

She continued to work hard, 
and in 1979 she founded the 
Child Guidance Trust, in or- 
der to preserve the skills and 
espericnce she feared would 
disappear. She was also on the 
council of the Save the Chil- 
dren Fund. 

Miss Addis seemed to ex- 
emplify all the values and 
virtues thought of as belong- 
ing to her generation. She 
expected high standards of 
others and was quick to show 
appreciation when she found 
them. Acutely observant, with 
endearing idiosyncrasies all 
her own. she never tailed in 
sympathy and tolerance, but 
nevertheless always insisted 
on feeing the facts. 

She was a superb organizer 
and negotiator. Her skills in 
coaxing decisions out of emi- 
nent. indii idualisricand often 
impractical specialists were 

In 19X5 she attended a 
dinner held by MIND to 
honour the founders of the 
World Federation, a event 
which united the two organi- 
zations she had served so 
devotedly. Those present will 
always remember her there, 
slight bul indomitable, radi- 
antly enjoying this celebration 
of her life's work with friends. 


Pepper Adams, one of mod- 
ern jazz's most influential 
baritone saxophonists, died at 
his home in New York City, 
on September 10. He was 55 
and had been suffering from 
cancer for some time. 

Adams, who also composed 
and arranged, was one of a 
small company of baritone sax 
players who translated the 
resonant tones of that instru- 
ment - so redolent of the swing 
era of the 1930s - to the more 
fluid, volatile ethos of postwar 

He was bom Paric Adams in 
Highland, Michigan, on Octo- 
ber 8, 1930, and educated at 
Wayne State University. As a 
young man he was drafted for 
service in the Korean War, 
after which he went to New 
York in 1956. to launch 
himself on his jazz playing 

In 1957 he began playing 
with Stan Kenton, and in that 
year was noticed by Down 
Beat magazine, which gave 
him its New Star award. 

He went on to (day and tour 
throughout the world with the 
major modem jazz names of 

the day. such as John 
Coltrane, Dizzy Gillespie and 
Benny Goodman, and ihe 
Thad Joncs-Mel Lewis band 
with whom be had a long and 
fruitful association. 

His early playing struck 
audiences by its intensity. 
This could sometimes erupt 
into what sounded like barely- 
controlled aggression, bom- 
barding the listener with 
torrents of notes, spilling ran- 
domly from his instrument. 

Later this ferocity came 
under greater discipline, and 
his period with the Joncs- 
Lewts orchestra brought a 
maturity to his work which 
enabled him lo communicate 
the fire-in-the-belly. without 
lapsing into incoherence. 

Besides his many recorded 
sessions - notably on the 1 966 
album of the Thad Jones-Mel 
Lewis band - Adams wrote 
thirty compositions which 
have’ been recorded. 

Stricken with cancer two 
years ago. he refused to give 
up playing gigs, and per- 
formed as recently as July, in 


Hew Butler writes : 

Roly Fothergill who died in 
Harare, Zimbabwe, on August 
26. aged 64. was well known in 
Southern Africa as editor, in 
turn, of three of Rhodesia's 
leading newspapers, during 
the Smith regime. 

Roly Folheigill was bom in 
Northern Rhodesia and was 
educated at Plum tree School. 
He had just started his career 
as a journalist when war was 
declared. He joined up as a 
gunner, was commissioned in 
the Rhodesian Light Battery 
and subsequently served with 
Sixth Airborne Division. 

On his demobilization in 
1945 he relumed to the Rho- 
desia Herald specializing in 
sports reporting and later 
covering parliament. He 
moved to Northen Rhodesia 
where he became assistant 
editor of the northern News. 
Subsequently in Southern 
Rhodesia he became assistant 
editor of the Chronicle, editor 
of the Sunday Mail and finally 

editor of the Herald. 

He was an unrelenting critic 
of the rebel government in 
Rhodesia but he sougbt to 
pursue moderation in his edi- 
torial policies, and he brought 
an element of quiet reason to 
discussion of political issues. 
He retired in I9S0. highly- 
regarded for his talent as a 
sports writer, political report- 
er. theatre critic, columnist 
and administrator. 

When he left journalism 
after 40 years he became the 
representative of The Beit 
Trust in Southern Africa. His 
wide knowledge of the region 
made him an invaluable 
member of the trust. 

FoihcTgill was a charming, 
lively and witty companion. 
An excellent raconteur, he 
would enliven long trips 
through Africa with anec- 
dotes. Memory of the smell of 
his pipe, which was frequently 
being relit, brings to mind a 
very gifted and humorous

Paris terrorist 
bomb injures 
more than 40 

From Diana Geddes, Paris 

* Terrorist bombers struck 
Without warning again in Paris 
yesterday, injuring 41 people, 
two seriously, in a crowded 
public place. The explosion 
Came just four days after the 
bomb attack on the Paris City 

• Yesterday’s bomb, the same 
type as that used in the City 
Hall attack, was left at around 
1130pm under a bench in a 
cafeteria at the Casino shop- 
ping centre, at la Defense, on 
the outskirts of the city. The 
explosion devastated the im- 
mediate area and blew out all 
the windows of surrounding 

A young man with black 
curly hair and a pale skin was 
seen running away shortly 
before the bomb went off. No 
one had claimed responsibil- 
ity for the attempt by last 
night, but it seemed more than 
likely to be the work of the 
“Committee of Solidarity with 
Arab and Middle-Eastern 
Political Prisoners'". 

The organization has al- 
ready claimed responsiblity 
for six successful attacks in 
France this year, including the 

one at the City Hall, in which 
three people were killed and 
78 injured. 

Earlier this month, it threat- 
ened to step up attacks antes 
its demands were met for the 
immediate release of three 
convicted Arab terrorists 
imprisoned In Fiance. 

The latest series of attacks — 
there have been three in the 
past week, if a failed bomb 
attack on the Paris Metro is 
included- — are causing a 
security nightmare for the

• STOCKHOLM: Staff and 
pupils were evacuated from a 
French school in the centre of 
Stockholm because of a bomb 
scare, but police said a sus- 
picious package turned out to 
contain dummy sticks of 
dynamite (Reuter reports).

eight to 19. Some are there 
after convictions for murder, 
others for personality dis- 
orders as severe as repeated 
attempted suicide. Some live 
in open conditions, others 
behind lock and key. 

The school was adopted by 
the prince’s former ship. HMS 
Brazen. He first visited it last 
year when ferrying his 
commanding officer by heli- 
copter for a visit. He became 
deeply interested in its work, 
returned soon after for a 
private visit, and has since 
become its patron. 

As the Duke and Duchess 
strolled through the grounds, 
pupils craned for a view and 
shouted for Sarah like any 
other royal crowd. At the 
security Mock which houses 
the most difficult cases, faces 

were pressed to windows. 

The couple toured class- 
rooms and dormitories, in- 
spected- an exhibition of 
photographs, and lunched 
with 50 staff and children, at 
which Camela presented the 
bowl of English yew made by 
the children as a belated 
wedding present 

Camela thought the Duke 
was simply wonderful. “Bo- 
fore I came here I didn't have 
much in life, and didn't think 
much of myself. When I was 
chosen to make the presenta- 
tion it encouraged me to feel 
important And he remem- 
bered my name.” 

During the visit two pupils 
who had absconded from the 
school the previous day were 
relumed after being seen by 
staff - standing by the road- 
side to watch the royal arrival.

I apologized to our guests. A

shadowed her talks with Mrs

sensitive topics of acid rain, 
oil exports, the European

In New York, Waff Street 
prices swung around wildly, 
with large selling orders again 
swelling trading- volume to 
high levels. Ax the middle of 
the session, the' Dow Jones 
industrial average was down 
13 points at 1,780. 

The gold price rose strongly 
m response to felling stock 
and bond prices around the 
world. It rose to $424 an ounce 
during London trading, before 
settling back to 5415 as share 
prices recovered. 

Earlier, in highly nervous 
trading conditions, the market 
had been down 49 points, 
following the record 86 point 
decline on Thursday. 

The US retail sales figures, 
on which a great deal hinged, 
came in a lot lower than 
market rumours had sug- 
gested. There was a rise of 0.8 
per cent in August, entirely 
due to the strength of new car 
sales as a result of special 

August, retail sales would 
have been .unchanged. 

Market rumours had sug- 
gested* retail sales- surge of at 
least 23per cent, and as much 
as4 percent. fuelling fears of a 
consumer boom which would 
both widen the already bras 
US trade deficit and set offa 
renewed rise in inflation. 

The other key indicator was 
the - producer price index, 
again expected to contain bad 
news. As h turned out, the 
index rose by just 0-3 per cent 
last month, following a 0.4 per 
cent fell in July. 

Traders said that the eco- 

market with a chance to pause 
for breath, but had not re- 
moved underlying doubts 
about the economy. 

Mr Robert Prechler, the US 
technical analyst credited with 
fuelling the mood or bearish- 
ness on Waff Street, said 
yesterday that he expected 
further share price fells to take 
the Dow Jones industrial av- 
erage near to 1600.

out was that the upcoming

For the chiefs of America's 
booming stock and index op- 
■ thm markets, Thursday's Waff 
Street shake-out was not all 
bad news, as American inves- 
tors were writing and buying 
options as never before (writes 
Richard Lander). 

The mam beneficiary Of the 
Wall Street fall-out was the 
Chicago Board Options Ex- 
change. And volume in the 
Standard & Poors 100-index 
options reached a record 13

three times more than the 

daily average for August. Add- 
ing in the exchange's options 
in 153 equities, currencies and 
financial instruments, more 
than two million contracts 
changed hands. 

The story was repeated on 
the American Stock Ex- 
change, which trades options

Low inflation ‘should mean 
no pay rise this winter’ 

By David Smith, Economics Correspondent 

i iiU' 


The rate of inflation held 
steady at 2.4 per cent last 
month, equalling its lowest 
level for 19 yearsTMr Kenneth 
Clarke, the Paymaster Gen- 
eral, said that no one heed 
take a pay rise this wrofer. “ . 

The. retail price* index. wa*

384.7 in July, a rise on; the 
month of 0.3 per cettL The 12- 
memth inflation rale was un- 
changed at 2.4 per cent! The 
last time that inflation was 
lower was in November 1967. 

“Another good month with 
inflation remaining stable and 
■tow,” was how Mr Clarke 
described August. '‘Since the 
last Budget took effect, the 
annual rate of inflation has 
consistently been below 3 per 
cent When you take account 
(of) the lax cuts in ibai Budget, 
the purchasing power of each- 
pound people earn has fallen 
over the year by vety little 
more than tep. . 

“This means that no one 
really needs any pay increase 
at all this winter simply to. 
ipaintain living standards. 
Ray rises - for any groups 
should be based solely^ on 
better; perforinance and .higher 
produchVhy.”.^ ' 

■ ; Tfe .was ftcjipcd* bySir 
‘ Terence Beckett, ihe director 
general of the Confederation 
of British industry. “Better 
productivity and pay settle- 
ments more in line with the 
current price increases are 
essen t ia l ." he said. 

The retail price index rose 
last month because of higher 
prices for some fresh fruit and 
■vegetables, the end of summer 
sales of clothing, footwear and 

-household durable- goods,. cenL 

year, the retail (rice index fell 
by Oil per cent in September, 
mainly as a result of lower 
mongage rates. This month, 
.petrol prices have risen by 
abouLlOp -compared with the 
August average and this-afone 
■could be expected to add <X3 

. Should the latest Z4 'per 
cent rate (wove to be the low 
point for inflation. Britain will- 
have feiled to do as well as 
other leading economies. The 
latest inflation rate for the 
United States is 1.6 per cent, 
Japan 0.5 per cent and France 
2 percent In Germany, prices 
have fallen by -0.5 per cent 
over the past 12 months, and 
in the Netherlands by 0,7 per 

pried increases on cars and 
other nuscellaiieous price 
rises. - 

' This month's inflation cate 
may be slightly higher than the 
2.4 per- cent recorded last 
month. In September last 

However, Britain’s rate is 
equal to the average for the 
Western industrialized coun- 
tries of the Organization for 
Economic Co-operation and 
Development, and below the 
EEC average of 3 per cent.

TSB issues 1 .5 billion 
shares at lOOp each 

Richard Thomson, Banking Correspondent 

The Trustee Savings Bank than double the TSB's net 

tangible assets lo more than £2 

yesterday announced that it 
was issuing 1.5 billion shares 
worth lOOp each in the largest 
stock market' flotation ever 
seen in Britain outside the 
Government's privatization 

The bank believes that pub- 
lic interest in the. issue is so 
great that it expects to gain 
two million new 
sharesholders, twice the num- 
ber for which is was aiming. 

Out of the £1.5 billion 
raised from the issue, the bank 
will receive a net £ 1 21 billion. 
Of the total, . 136 million 
shares are being retained as 
bonus shares for investors 
who hold on to their shares for 
three years. Free shares for 
employees and a further £86 
million in expenses, related to 
the flotation, is being de- 
ducted from the gross

billion. Only 77 per cent of the 
issue is being underwritten, 
and this had been arranged by 
yesterday afternoon. 

Mr Duncan Clegg, a direc- 
tor of Lazard Brothers, the 
merchant bank handling tbe 
issue, said: “We have been 
determined lo set a price that 
is simple and memorable. The 
consequence of that is to vary 
the number of shares issued." 
He added that the TSB was 
nowaimingtoraise more than 
the £1 billion it had originally 

The indicated dividend 
yield at tbe sale price is 6 per 
cent, with a forecast single 
dividend of 1.065p net pay- 
able in March 1987 for the 
current year. The offer price 
represents a discount to net 
assets of 26.5 per cent

1986 shows a £31 1 million 

pretax profit for the bank. 
According to the forecast, 
earnings per share would be 
!3.1p while the notional divi- 
dend cover would be 3.! 

Lazards said the pricing was 
designed to attract private 
investors and that institu- 
tional shareholders were un- 
likely to be given more than 
about 20 percent of the issue. 

The issue is partly paid, 
with 50p payable immediately 
and a further SOp due next 
September. Staff and cus- 
tomers with priority status are 
assured of being allocated 
shares, and can apply on white 
as wdl as pink forms. 

The foil prospectus for the 
issue will be published on 
Tuesday in The Times, while 
seven million “mini- 
prospectuses” are being made 
available in TSB Lloyds 
Bank. Bank of Scotland and 
Northern Bank branches. 

Royal Ordnance, the State- 
owned amts and munitions 
company whose privatization 
was cancelled by the Govern- 
ment earlier this year, made a 
profit before tax and extraor- 
dinary items of £26 million in 
the year to December 1985, 
according to its annual report 
published yesterday. 

The report is being pub- 
lished asa preparatory move 
to the sale of the company. A 
Royal Ordnance spokesman 
said yesterday that a sale 
memorandum would be sent 
out by the Government 

“somewhere around 
beginning of October". 

Worldwide sales of the com- 
pany were £487 million, of 
which £85 million or 17.5 per 
cent- was represented try 

Extraordinary items of £20 
million reduce pretax profits 
to only £6 million. These 
include costs of £1 million 
relating to the flotation, such 
as advisors' fees and printing 
costs. In addition, a further 
provirion of £19 million is 
being made in anticipation of 
future rationalization of tbe 

company's activities. 

The total balance sheet 
provisions to cover the 
restructuring operations that 
were originally instigated as a 
prelude to the flotation, come 
to £34 million, some £40 
million less than the figure 
contained in a draft flotation 
prospectus which The Times 
obtained a copy of in May. 

Tbe discrepancy is ac- 
counted for by tbe feet that 
Royal Ordnance has scaled 
down the level of its 
reorganization now that it is 
not being sold to the public. 

T&N bid 
for AE 


By Cliff Feitham 

Turner & Newali, the min- 
ing and asbestos group, has 
narrowly feiled to capture 
control of AE the motor 
components business, after a 
bitterly contested takeover 

When the £260 million offer 
closed last night, T&N was left 
speaking for 49 per cent ofihc 
AE shares and declared the bid 
had lapsed. 

A jubilant Sir John 
Collyear. chairman of AE 
said: “It became dear during 
the battle that they needed, us 
very badly, which 1 think 
made institutions worry a bit 
about Tumcr& Newali and to 
what extent we would be left 
supporting them if the bid 
went through.” 

The T&N campaign also 
suffered a setback at the 
eleventh hour when some 
institutions withdrew support 
for the bid. In the event this 
proved crucial, leaving the 
asbestos group within a whis- 
ker of obtaining control. 

However, after stripping out 
acceptances. T&N will be left 
with a near 30 percent bolding 
in AE, built up by stock 
market purchases during the 
course of the bid. 

Sir John said he had no idea 
whether T&N would retain its 
shareholding and bid again in 
a year's time. 

“I haven't thought that fer 
ahead yet, although I would 
prefer that they stayed away. 
All I want to do now is get 
back to running the business.” 
he said. 

T&N has recovered strongly 
since the setback suffered by 
asbestoris claims and has been 
keen to acquire different 

Under Sir Francis Tombs, 
its forceful chairman, the 
company launched a bid for 
AE claiming industrial logic 
on the grounds of its shared 
customers in technology and 
automotive products. 

In particular, it claimed that 
AE was fer too small to exploit 
the worldwide potential for 
these products, whereas the 
combined group would be in a 
far more powerful position. 

However, AE hit back 
strongly saying that many of 
the marketing benefits were 
very thin and in some areas 
there was only a tiny overlap 
in products. 

This is now the third big 
takeover attempt in the en- 
gineering sector to fail in 
recent months. 

Both the Siebe bid for APV 
and the Evened offer for 
McKechnie also collapsed, 
suggesting, said some City 
experts last night, that institu- 
tions are now more willing to 
accept a management's case 
for remaining independent

Building societies’ retail 
funds increased last . month 
while mortgage lending de- 
clined according to figures- 
released • by the Building 
Societies' Association 
yesterday. . 

The increase is likely to be. 
shortlived in the Lightjof the 
pending sales of TSB and 
British Gas.- * 

House price figures released 
by ihe BSA yesterday show 
that London property prices 
are maintaining their high 
level of increase, with .the 
average London house price 
now standing at £53354. 

Average prices for the UK 
as a whole net building society 
retail receipts of £452 million • 
in. August represented an in- 
crease of £65 million and only 

the second time since 1964 
that net receipts have in- 
creased between July and 

New car registrations tra- 
ditionally cause a decline in 
receipts between these two 
months. ’ j. 

Although' mortgages ad- 
vances ol£3-5 billion were still 
at a high level, they were about 
£300 million down on July. 
Mortgage commitments fell to 
£3.3 billion from £4.0 billion. 

Apart from seasonal factors, 
the decline represents the 
diminishing impact of the 
spate of cuts in mortgage rates 
earlier this year. 

Societies continued to tap 
the wholesale -markets for 
their funding requirements 
with an August figure of £540 

million, the fourth largest 
monthly draw by societies 
from wholesale sources, such 
as Eurobonds and Certificates 
of Deposit. 

Mr Mark Boleat, the new 
Secretary-General of the BSA 
said yesierdatf“Building soci- 
eties did well to increase net 
receipts in -a month in which 
seasonal factors usually result 
in a decrease. Nevertheless 
retail inflow remains inad- 
equate to fond mortgage de- 
mand' and this explains 
societies extensive use of the 
wholesale markets over tire 
past few weeks.” 

A BSA spokesman said 
yesterday that he expected 
that the TSB sale will cost the 
societies between £1 00 to £ 150 
million . 

Societies' liquidity ratios hit 
a new record low last month, 
as societies continue to fond 
pan of the mortgage demand 
frQm internal resources. 

The ratio of 16.3 percent is 
the lowest since the spring of 

The BSA yesterday pub- 
lished its survey ofhouse price 
movements for the second 
quarter of this year. The 
survey, based upon a sample 5 
per cent of building society 
mortgage completions, shows 
that London property prices 
were still increasing by an 
annual rate of one fifth up till 
the end of June this year. 

House prices in the North of 
England increased by 8.7 per 
cent Those in Yorkshire and 
Humberside were up by. 8.8

Good Relations in 
£14m takeover 

Good Relations,. the pnbtic 
relations company 'hit by* 
wave of staff defections, is 
being taken over by Lowe 
Howard-Spink and Bell the 
advertising group* for almost 
£14 million. 

.The takeover ends specula- 
tion over the future of Good 
Relations whose shares 
slumped from a peak of 280p 
last year to 80p. Takeover talk 
poshed np the share price to 
yesterday's agreed bid worth 
I57p. There is a cash after - 1 
native worth 148p. 

’ Tbe company was ceasared 

by the Stock Exchange last 
year after 1 Miss. Manreen 
Smith, the chief executive, left 
the company and sold ii large 
bk»ck of her shares without 
telling fellow directors. 

There has been an exodus iff 
staff at all levels _ of the 
business.-** four main board 
directors have left inside a 
year — many to establish rival 

publicity businesses. 

. When merger talks with the 
USM-quotM agency Valin 
Fofleu broke dowa recently, it 

confirmed the Gty's viewlhat 
it was only a . matter of time 
before Good Relations 
changed hands. 

The Good Relations board, 
holding 26 pa cent of the 
equity, has. agreed to die 
takeover terms with Mr Tony 
Good, the chairman -and 
founder, and Mr Alan Cor- 
nish. the chief executive who 
joins the board of Lowe, Bell 

Mr Frank Lowe^ tbe chair- 
man of tbe advertising group, 
said:- “The -foci that Good 
Relations has been tbrou^i 
such a torrid time and stiff 
kept its d rents convinced me 
that it was an absolutely sound 
business.* . 

Good Relations recently .re- 
ported first-half pretax profits 
of £401,000, against nunc than 
£700,000 -previously, after 
writing off £208,000 arising 
from an ill-fated move to set up 
an office in the United States., 

Last year Lowe Howard- 
Spink and Bell earned profits 
f £32 million.

Despite its sophistication, 
and its acceptance by the 
travel industry as a reserva- 
tion and information system, 
Prestel has failed to live up to 
expectations. Although it is 
profitable, it has only 70,000 
users and is growing at a rate 
of only a few hundred cus- 
tomers a week. BT, in an effort 
to emulate its success in the 
travel industry, has sought to 
target Prestel on additional 
specific business and con- 
. sumer information market 
needs. But few new informa- 
tion providers are making use 
of the system. 

Telecom Gold, which is 
four years old, already has 
50,000 users and with the 
addition of 1,000 customers a 
week, is expected to double its 
customer base in the next 
year. , 

In a further move to bolster 
Prestel. BT also hopes to link- 
it to the French Minitel sys- 
tem, which has more than 2 
million users and is the 
world's hugest system for

Brighter Delta ready to 
spread wings in US 

Yesterday's interim results 
from Delta have made an- 
alysts sit up. Pretax profits 
came in at the top end of 
expectations, despite £3.4 
million worth or adverse 
currency movements. The . 
geographical spread is 
improving and a sizeable 
acquisition in the United 
States appears to be 

Delta has recently been 
labelled by the City as un- 
exciting on trading grounds, 
while its exposure to South 
Africa (20 per cent of profits 
and 10 per cent of assets) has 
| scared off less stalwart inves- 
jiors. As a result, the shares 
have underperformed the 
market by more than 20 per 
cent in the fast three months. 

In the first half of 1986, 
electrical equipment profits 
increased marginally. A good 
performance from the low- 
cost cable business was 
masked by poor demand for 
industrial and commercial 
i switch gear from oil produc- 
ing countries. These products 
enjoy relatively high margins, 
so any fall-off in demand is 
particularly damaging. Some 
rationalization is under way 
while at the same time alter- 
native markets are being 

. Fluid controls is a low 
margin business but profits 
moved ahead and there is 
scope to increase the capital 
return. The metals division 
performed unsatisfactorily, 
but is unlikety to get much 
worse. Lower profits from 
industrial services are more 
of a reflection of currency 
movements than of poor 

Delta aims to achieve a 
balance between risk and 
• reward in South Africa. It is 
containing its exposure there 
and has injected the rest of its 
non-manganese subsidiaries 
into Delta Electrical In- 
dustries, a company quoted 
on the Johannesburg Stock 

Delta now has a 58 per cent 
shareholding but this will fall ' 
to nearer 50 per cent by the 
year end. Since 1980. £30 
million of cash generated in 
South Africa has been remit- 
ted by Delta: £10 million 
came through this year alone. 

A low gearing ratio (no 
more than 15 per cent of 
shareholders' funds) gives 
Delta the scope to make one 
or more acquisitions, which 
should rekindle interest in 


Shave price 


the shares. A pretax profit 
estimate of £56 million gives 
24.5p of earnings and on this 
basis the shares are selling on 
a modest p/e ratio of 7.1 
times. If the electrical equip- 
ment division were valued in 
line with other comparable 
companies. Delta sharehold- 
ers would seem to be getting 
the rest of the business 
thrown in for free. 



Although the Addison Con- 
sultancy has its own in-house 
financial public relations ex- 
perts, who know what to do 
about these things, it was 
yesterday bemoaning its low 
rating. Clearly there is a PR 
job to be done. 

Addison's shares have suf- 
fered in recent months, along 
with the advertising sector in 
general, from a previous sur- 
feit of hype and a bout of 
indigestion after Saatchi & 
Saatchi's massive rights is- 

Addison's interim pretax 
profits were, however, above 
market expectations at £2.8 
million and indicate that the 
group will meet City forecasts 
of £6.3 million in the fiiU 
year. The prospective p/e, on 
shares down 2p at 1 18p. is 
just under 14. A far cry from 
the heady days of p/es in the 

The strength of the under- 
lying businesses, now 
grouped into five divisions, 
belies the market's loss of 
interest. There is no sign of a 
let-up in the rising demand 
for advertising. PR. research 
and personnel services. 

The interims cover the 
merger of Addison Page with 
Chetwynd Streets, but do not 
include figures for Aidcom.

the design consultancy pur- 
chased last month. 

Addison’s £6 million cash 
pile will be applied to about 
£2 million of Aidcom debt, 
leaving £4 million clocking 
up interest. The acquisitions 
have been made deliberately 
for paper to increase 
Addison's stock market size 
and enhance the marketabil- 
ity of the shares- . 

For next year the City is 
pencilling in profits of £10.2 
million, by which stage there 
may have been a recovery in 
sentiment about people 

Good Relations 

PR group Good Relations 
went through its own big 
bang a bit earlier than the rest 
of the city. 

The fact that it has man- 
aged to survive at all, bearing 
in mind it operates in a sector 
where image and presenta- 
tion is everything, owes much 
to the remaining members of 
the team which decided not 
to quit the sinking ship. 

Yesterday, advertising 
agency Lowe Howard-Spink 
and Bell considered that there 
was still something to be 
salvaged, and paid £13.9 
million in an agreed bid for 
the company. 

It gives them the chance to 
acquire a public relations arm 
to the fast expanding business 

The loss of confidence in 
Good Relations has been an 
lesson in the vulnerability of 
the so called “people 

The company has appeared 
almost powerless to prevent 
its downward spiral, sending 
the shares plunging from a 
high of 280p at one stage last 
year to 80p before the in- 
evitable bid talk nursed them 
up to yesterday’s sell-out 
price of J48p.

cheap cement in this country 
appear to have fallen on deaf 
ears. The big Greek producers, 
with the foil backing of their 
government, have rejected a 
request from Britain to stop 
expons to this country. 

They were unmoved by 
warnings from British produc- 
ers that up to 3,000 jobs could 
be lost in the cement and coat 
industries as a result of their 
action. Cement producers re- 
ceive subtidies of almost 20 ! 
per cent from the Greek i 
government. I 

The rebuff hit all the quoted 
cement manufacturers at- j 
though prices managed to i 
close above their worst levels 
of the day. Bine Circle In- 
dustries tumbled 7p to 546p. 
after S38p, Cement-Roadstone

land 4p to 1 56p. RMC Group 
was another weak market 
falling I4p to 648p_ 

Buiiding shares, weak on 
hopes of an imminent cut in 
interest rates, continued to 
slip further into the back- 
ground. Losses were seen in 
Barratt Developments 6p to 
140p, Bryant Holdings 6p to 
119p. Costain Groop, which 
reported earlier, I2p to 528p, 
John Laing ‘A’ 6p to 409p, 
Taylor Woodrow lop to 318p, 
Alfred McAlpine 6p to 436p 
and George Wimpey Sp to 

Disappointment over the 
current level of interest rates 
also hit stores where some of 
the best names in the high 
street came under pressure. 
Harris Queensway fell 4p at 
236p. Great Universal Stores 
‘A' 30p at £10.80, Boots 3p at 
2I9p, Burton Group 4p at 
296p and Ratners 6p to 222p. 

Attempts at a rally by the 
big four clearing banks proved 
short-lived. Some market men 
claim that they are looking a 
bit expensive against the 
Trustee Savings Bank which 
is being offered at I00p where 
it yields 6 per cent As a result, 
Barclays Bank fell Sp to 492p, 
after 502p, Lloyds Bqnk 2p to 
442p, after 452p. Midland 
Bank 3p to 574p, after 584p, 
and National Westminster 
Bank 15pto532p. 

Bui the two big Scottish 
banks fared a little better. The 
Bank of Scotland hardened Sp 
to 422p, after 427p, while the 
Royal Bank of Scotland eased 
2p to 346p, after 352p. 



Investors will still say 
‘yes’ to the TSB 

Sir John Read, the Trustee Savings 
Bank chairman, had reason to look 
relieved yesterday. The flotation price 
had been announced, the Govern- 
mem had stoically refrained from 
second thoughts about the giveaway 
and there was not a single writ from 

than the Scottish ones. But TSB is 
now a new bank and what marten is 
how it uses the near £1.3 billion 
proceeds of the issue.

of the range, nearer English banks

British banks — higher than the

Armageddon postponed 

Armageddon is postponed. The 
picture of roaring US consumer 
spending and surging inflation that 
was supposed to have emerged from 
yesterday's figures from Washington 
did not appear. 

Rarely can a set of US retail sales 
figures have achieved as much prom- 
inence as those published by the 
Commerce Department yesterday. As 
stocks tumbled on Thursday, market 
estimates for retail rales became 
wilder, from 2.5 per cent to 3 per cent 
and finally, as the martinis took over, 
to 4 per cent 

The 0.8 per cent rise in retail sales in 
August, actually announced yes- 
terday, following a revised 03 per cent • 
July increase, was an embarrassing 
anti-climax. Without the sharp rise m 
car sales, helped, by special incentive 
schemes, there would have been no 

As for producer prices, the party 
may be over as far as monthly falls are 
concerned — last month there was a 
0.3 per cent rise compared with a 0.4 
per cent July falL But there is nothing 

there to portend a big resurgence of 

Indeed, the Chancellor would prob- 
ably gladly swap the US inflation 
prospect for that of Britain. As 
Geoffrey Dennis at James Capel 
points out, the US has the lowest 
average earnings growth of the main 
economies and, as importantly, the 
pace is declining. 

Tbis is probably enough to offset 
most of the adverse effects of the Fed's 
problems in controlling monetary 
growth, the dollar's foil and signs of a 
rise in dollar commodity prices. There 
is, however, a new possibility for the 
markets to consider — that of a DM2- 
2. 10. target zone for the dollar. 

Yesterday, the- Bundesbank inter- 
vened, to prevent the dollar rising 
above DM2.I0, perhaps to alleviate 
some of its guilt for not cutting 
interest rates. The Group of Five 
meets on September 26, just ahead of 
the main International Monetary 
Fund meeting. The participants may 
try to put a little more formality into 
the current, semi-managed exchange 
rate framework.

Shares that appeal to 12 million 

TSB ~) 

The Trustee Savings Bank 
may be only a quarter of the 
size of British Telecom, but 
tor the small 'private investor 
it is the biggest and potentially 
most lucrative share issue in a 
line designed to increase the 
spread of share ownership in 

The TSB says about 12 
million people are interested 
in buying its shares. There is, 
of course, a small minority of 
financial gums, who know 
exactly why the- issue offers 
sucq splen did value. 

Without going into long, 
breath -takingly dull details of 
the fabulous discount to net 
asset value offered to subscrib- 
ers, or the free goodwill of the 
business, we can say that the 
TSB; offers investors a finan- 
cial open goal a mile wide, and 
when they have scored they 
can keep the posts. - - 

Here is our guide to every- 
thing you need to know. 

•.How do I apply? 

By filling in an application 
form. If you have contacted 
the TSB Share Information 
office (2 London Wall B inkl- 
ings, London EC2M 5 PS; 01- 
588 ; 2020) either you wfll 
already have an application 
form or one will be on its way 
to you. l: 

Applications must be in by 
10am on Wednesday, Septem- 
ber : 24. They, must be 

accompanied by cheques, 
pinned to the application 
form. You may well receive 
no shares if your cheque strays 
from the form. 

The completed form, plus 
cheque, must be taken or 
posted to the address printed 
on the form by the September 
24 deadline. Alternatively, 
you can band your completed 
form to your stockbroker, if 
you have one, who should 
check h to make sure it is filled 
in correctly and forward it to 
the appropriate address. 

• Do I have priority status? 

If you don't know now you 

never wifi da Everyone eli- 
gible should have received a 
letter from the TSB to that 
effect. You had until Septem- 
ber S to register your priority 

Priority means 
a guarantee 

and obtain a coveted pink 
application form. If you don't 
have one now, it is too late. 

• What should I do with my 

priority status? What does it 

You should use it, by apply- 
ing for shares on your phut 
form. You should also apply 
on the white forms which 
everyone else is entitled to 
use. Priority status means yon 
are guaranteed to receive 
some shares at least Ordinary 
applicants do no have that 

• What will it cost to apply? 
Priority siauis applicants 
must write a cheque for at 
least £100, as the minim am 
ation is for 200 shares of 


£1 each 

:1 each. Only 50p is payable 
straight away, however. Other 
applicants wifi have to pay out 
at least £200 at once, as their 
minimum application is for 
400 shares. Add to the above 
the cost of a stamp if you post 
the form. There are no oilier 
charges such as Stamp Duty. 

• How many shares wifi I 

No one knows yet. The 
bankers have to decide on 
what basis shares are to be 
allocated. It is almost certain 
that the issue will be heavily 

If earlier policy on issues to 
promote wider share owner- 
ship is pursued (the TSB, bear 
in mind, is not technically a 
flotation as the government 
receives no money) the shares 
will be spread quite thinly. For 
Telecom the maximum in- 
dividual holding was 800 
shares, costing £400. When 
the second portion of Britofl 
was floated off last year every- 
one received just £100 word) 
of shares. 

The maximum application 
for priority applicants is for 
10.000 shares, costing £5,000 
on (he first instalment. For 
ordinary applicants there is no 
maximum. Many stock- 
brokers expect a cut-off point 

with a low number of shares 
given to as many applicants as 
possible. Hence, it might be 
foolish to write an optimis- 
tically huge cheque. However, 
we are only second-guessing 
the bankers' decision on 

- • Can children apply? 

Yes. Their parents will hold 

the shares for them, but TSB 
holdings will .be registered in 
the name of the child ap- 
plicant. Children with priority 
status can apply on both pink 
and white forms like adult 

• How can I sell? 

- If you deride to sell you can 
do so through a stockbroker. 
All you have to do is tele- 
phone and say bow many you 
want to sell and the firm will 

September 29 is 
allocation day 

obtain the best buying price

country will deal at special low 
rates of commission. Below 
£300 worth of dares will be

sion. From £300 to £424 a sate

£425 a transaction will be 
charged out at 1.65 per cenL 
On lop of brokers' commis-

difference between the buying 
and selling price of the share. 

Another outlet are "licensed

their services as “commission-

do not charge brokers' 
commission, but they will levy - 
a large "turn", which may 
make them more expensive.

before dealing. 

A similar low-cost service is 
available for buyers.

Golden eagle 

■ Gold has been attracting a tot

tortured psyche of buffion 
traders. Why it did so is, as usual, a 
matter for loud rationalization 
after the event Many are taking the 
rise as an expression of doubt 
as to the valuation of shares, 
especially in London and Wafl 

Whatever the reasons, gold is 
certainly mineral of the month. The 
Americans must be pleased that 
they timed the release ot their very

Rexible pensions 

■ The latest in all-singing, ail- 
dancing pensions products comes 
from Premium Life with a unit- 
linked package which the managing 
director, Peter Connor, 
describes as "flexible and as 
portable as it can be, given what 
we know about the law". The 
Flexible Retirement Account 
certainly has a wide range of knobs 
and twiddiy bits. It can give life 
and disability cover and loan backs 
and may be linked to a Premium 
Life home loan. 

The plan is aimed at the self- 
employed and the mobile executive 
and will, it is hoped, "be offc 
by the more enlightened emp 
in addition to a company 
scheme. Unfortunately, employers 
are still under no obligation to 
make contributions to the pension 
plans of those who opt out of 
company schemes. Unless and until 
they are obliged to contribute, 
the law may prove to be plan's 
weakest selling point 

Merger mania 

■ The bigger building society 
hsh have been splashing about for 
months in largely unsuccessful 
attempts to merge. The Nationwide 
and the Woolwich is probably 
the best known example, but the 
difficulties of agreeing common 
standards and massaging bruised 
egos has scuooered several 
deals. The latest example came this 
week with the scrapping of the 
Town & Country's proposed liaison 
with the Leeds Permanent 

But in the industry's more gentle 
backwaters there may be a greater 
chance of harmonious 
amalgamation. The Stroud Building 
and Swindon Permanent 
societies have announced their 
intention to meld their assets of 
£130 million and E2S million 
respectively in a West Country 
alliance. Tbs new society, if and 
when the merger occurs, wilt 
probably be of the vigorous but 
local variety, which will not 
attempt to compete with banks and 
the likes of the Halifax. * 

battle of 
the banks 

What joy it is to see the high 
street Titans locked in battle. 
The «mr of the big banks is 
fought continuously, bitterly, 
and on alt fronts. Yon can 
perhaps imagine the cat-call- 
ing from competitors which 
greets the launch of a new 

National Westminster this 
week introduced an agreed 
overdraft facility with "the 
honest intention of trying to 
help customers". The air was 
soon thick with the sound 
spokesmen from the other 
tanks slithering off the record. 

"I think it's a waste of time, 
but don't quote me," said one. 
And another rose to the digni- 
fied heights of saying that be 
“wouldn't sneer at it". 

Lloyds Bank rang simply to 
point out that it already has 
something similar, but, it 
claimed, cheaper. 

The product which has been 
creating the fuss is the cring- 
ing!) titled “Credit Zone**, 
which willgite National West- 
minster Bank customers 
standing permission to go 
overdrawn op to a pre-ar- 
ranged limit between £100 and 
£ 2 . 000 . 

Once agreed with the 
branch manager, the facility 
“does not require regular 
renew”, according to the 
bank. A fee of £5 per q muter is 
payable if the account goes 
into tbe red. and interest is 
charged al an annual 19.6 per 
cent, the equivalent of 15 per 
cent monthly. 

But the true cost will be 
higher. After tbe £5 fee the 
personal tariff charges which 
apply to accounts not con- 
ducted in credit are 25p per 
debit and £3 per quarter 
maintenance fee. That would 
make quite a hefty charge for 
the account which is just 
marginally overdrawn. 

Lloyds Bank says its own 
agreed overdraft is cheaper. 
Although the annual percent- 
age rate is higher at 202) per 
cent, the equivalent of 1.6 per 
cent per month, no fee is 
charged for using the facility. 

Agreed overdrafts are, of 
course, cheaper than tbe pu- 
nitive rates charged on 
unagreed overspending . 

Finally, a compliment. Mid- 
land Bank is “looking bard” at 
a scheme of its own. 


Advice to the unwary abroad in die City , 



flHE sun blazed down on the scorched savannah. The 

dry grass rustled like sandpaper in the hot breeze. 
Overhead, the sky was porcelain blue. But the giraffe 
was donning a sea-green sou’wester. A sunbathing lion 

opened a quizzical eye 
and started to roar with 
laughter. A pack of 
hyenas cackled hyster- 
ically. Undeterred, the 
giraffe tugged on his 
Wellington boots, one, 
two, three and four. 

other, whispering and 
giggling.The giraffe pooh 
poohed their jibes and 
unfurled a sober black 
umbrella. Still, the other 
animals broiled in the 
sun. Elephants sported 
smart new trunks. A 
long-legged camel shyly adjusted the bikini top onher humps. 

But the giraffe was studying the skies. 

And, sure enough, a little black cloud came scudding 

in from the west. Then another. Then another. Until at 

last the sky above was as black as ink. With a violent crack, 
the clouds split open. The sunbathers were bathed in a 
torrent of rain. As they scurried for cover, awash with 

mascara and suntan 
oil, the giraffe reflected 
on the benefits of being 
the tallest animal of all. 
From his lofty vantage 
point, he’d been able 
to see the clouds gather 
on the horizon. 

Just like the giraffe,

Poor cousins’ who

Qn vestment") 

Investment trusts are invari- 
ably regarded as the poor 
consiiis of their mitt trust 
counterparts. W hile the t o<i| 
amount of money under 
management in the mrit trust 
industry is consistently break- 
ing previous records.—, it rose 
£1 1 billion in one year to July 
1986 — the investment trust 
sector has floundered around 
the £20 billion mark. 

Undoubtedly one of the 
reasons for the success of the 
unit bust industry is its 
comparative freedom to mar- 
ket mrit busts; and of coarse 
the conmussious paid to inter- 
mediaries who pash mrit

restricted by law, and financial 
intermediaries do not earn any

Information has

recommend investment trusts. 

The difference in marketing 
flexibility is largely respon- 
sible for the fact that unit trust 
management expenses are, on 
average, twice as much as 
those for investment trusts. 

Investment trust manage- 
ment expenses, according to 
the Association of Investment 
Trust Companies, avenge ft4 
per cent of assets, while nab 
trust management groups 
charges avenge between 0.75 
and 1 per cent 

“It is the difference between 
being able to market and not 
being able to market," ex- 
plains an AITC spokesman. 

Meanwhile the AITC, con- 
cerned abort the decline of 

jazzed op its statistical 

information, bringing ft more 
into fine with the way in which 
the uni t trust industry presents 
its own figures. 

Hence a monthly top 20 Bst 
is published, showing thehest

ooe-year period, is shown 

Incidentally, FAC 
Eurotrast, managed by invest- 
ment "imp Foreign A 
Colonial, is top on a one-year; 
two-year and three-year basis

In addition, the 134 invest- 
ment trusts are now broken 
down into specialist categories 

— another recent development; 
before it or not. So thou are 
divi s ions into cat e g ori es such 
as Far East, Japan, Income

Finally, although individual 
investment trusts are not al- 
lowed to say it, they have been 
performing very well in recent 
months c om p ar ed with the 
market overall.

Wood Mackenzie writes: 
“Nice to leel we are in a

Your cash, and your rights 

Source: Association of investment Trust Companies 


We are being left more and 
more on our own when it 
comes to pension arrange- 
ments. Gone are the days of 
financial paternalism and the 
comprehensive Welfare State. 

Soon we shall all have the 
right to opt out of employers’ 
schemes, cany oar portable 
pensions on our back and 
make the labour market less 
"rigid" than the Government 
would like. 

But how shall we know 
where to cany them? And 
indeed should we carry them 
at all? 

A useful steer in helping to 
make our minds up will come 
when the regulations of the 
1986 Social Security Act come 
into effect this autumn. The 
trustees of- occupational 
schemes will have to. make 
certain information available 
to members and. prospective 
member employees. 

We can expect important 
information for all who sub- 
scribe to a company pension 
scheme. Whether we are get- 
ting what we might expea 
right now is another matter. 

A recent survey by the 
National Association of Pen- 
sion Fund Managers showed . 
only 73 per cent of /schemes,, 
supplied basic and important 
information such as benefit 
statements, with just 3 per 
'cent more making an annu a l 
trustee report as legislation 
wiD require. 

There are two sets of obliga- 

tions placed on trustees — 
information which must be 
provided automatically and 
information which must be 
provided on request These 
“burdens" are unlikely to be 
particularly onerous. The 
trick, of course, is for the 
employee or scheme member 
to know what questions to ask. 

From November I, com-’ 
pany pension schemes must 
provide members and poten- . 
rial members with basic 
information about eligibility 
and the conditions of 
membership, the basis on 
which members and 

Major changes have 
to be notified 

employers’ contributions are 
calculated, the tax-approved 
status of the scheme, and the 
conditions on which benefits 
are paid. 

The basic information 
should also include a contact 
address for inquiries. Major 
changes to any of these details 
must be notified to members 
and beneficiaries within one 
month of the change. Re- 
quests for basic information 
can be made only once in 
every three years; 

According to the regula- 
tions, -members, ^ potential . 
members, their spouses, 
beneficiaries, and recognized 
trade unions-wfil be entitled to 
free, copies of the annual 
report which should contain a 
trustees’ report and invest- 
ment report, the latest audited 

accounts and an actuarial 
statement. The contents of 
any documents constituting 
the scheme must be available 
for inspection on request 
made by any of the same 

If they request an actual 
copy of the constitution this 
must be provided, although 
the trustees will be em- 
powered to make a “reason- 
able charge" for such copies. 
This does not apply to public 
service employees whose pen- 
sion is guaranteed by 

Most people will be entitled 
to free copies of an annual 
•report, including a trustees* 
report, an investment report, 
the latest audited accounts 
and an actuarial statement. 

• Once a year the employee 
will have the right to request a 
benefit statement. This should 
cel out the benefits accrued 
and the likely entitlement 
based on current contribu- 
tions and salary. Employees 
leaving the company must be 
told of their rights and options 
while, if asked, trustees are 
required to give details about 
rights to cash equivalents and 
transfer values where these 
would become available on 
termination of a member's 
peqsqnable service. 

On retirement, beneficiaries 
must be told the amount of 
benefit' to which the)/ are 
entitled, conditions relating to 
payment and any provisions 
on benefit increases. If a 
member dies before reaching 

retirement age, his or her 
dependants or other benefi- 
ciaries must be given details of 
their benefit entitlement. 

Finally, there are new rights 
for employees belonging to 
schemes that are wound up. 
They wilL in future, be en- 
titled as of right to be notified 
of their benefit entitlement, 
who will pay them, and details 
of where they can obtain 
further information once the 
winding-up operation has 
been completed. 

One practical tip here - 
there have been cases where 
the company has got it all 

Making your 
employer pay 

wrong. The pension scheme 
may in fact have different 
provisions from those con- 
tained in explanatory booklets 
and statements from the trust- 
ees of the scheme. It will 
always be worthwhile for the 
employee to ask for a letter 
certifying that the details in 
the booklet are accurate. That 
way the employ er/tmstee is 
far more likely to have to pay 
up if the booklet has not 
reported the contents of the 
trust deed accurately and there 
are unpleasant surprises on 
retirement '

The first unit trust 
designed to tap the strength 

Last year GT bunched the first unit trust to invest 
exclusively in German equities. A unique opportunity to 
participate in the free woridb third largest economy, the 
worlds fourth largest Stock market and one of the worlds 
consistently strongest currencies. 

Here, for tite first time, wasafundaeatedspeci6cally 

to take advantage of the political stability, fina: 1 

strength and commitment to sheer hard work 
which has made Germany the most 
successful industrial nation in 



Germany's economic, monetary and 

social climate has encouraged steadylcrag-t 

industrial growth. As a result. German industry confidently 
continues to invest in its own future prosperity. ■ m 
Whh an inflation rate now below 1%, coupled with 
low interest rates, the German economy could hardly be 

looking healthier _ .. 

German manufacturing industry with its strong, simile 

management and its excellent industrial relations record, is 
reaping the rewards of the ever growing reputation of its 
products in world markets.

it was launched in March 1982 was worth £5,940 at 1st

GT was the first to spot die dramatic changes in the 
German market and the first to be convinced of the funda- 
mental -values available in that economy. 


GT believes that the long-te r m trend 
isstill highly promisng,apd that Germany 
a an essential part ofany portfolio. As a 
group, GTs policy has always been to 
take the longer view - to aim for 
.solid growth over time, and 
j as fir as Germany is concerned, the time

The price of units and the income 
from them can go down as veefl as up.

Caution is the answer to the cold-caller 


Remember all those 
“stockbrokers” in Amsterdam 
who used to persuade unwary 
British investors to buy shares 
in companies that did not 
exist or whose stock was 

They were cleared out by 
the Dutch authorities, but £f 
you now get a call out of the 
blue from a smooth, talker 
trying to sell you shares in 
companies you have never 
heard of, take care. 

At least one company based 
in Spain is cold-calling poten- 
tial investors in the UK and 
selling them shares in obscure 
and apparently dubious con- 
cerns. The company in ques- 
tion has in feet been . in 
operation for well over a year. 

Last January a company 
calling itself Timezone 
Corporation, based in Madrid, 
rang an investor offering to 
sell him shares in a US- 
registered mining company. 
Timez one's salesman said the 
mining company, Beacons- 
field International Inc, was 
about to strike it rich in a 
major new gold find in 

The investor bought £500 
worth of shares then and there 
over the telephone. He was 
due to buy a further £2,500 
later but withheld payment 

when the share certificates for 
the first amount did not 
arrive, despite repeated re- 
quests. When he was even- 
tually told by Timezone that 
thecemficates were being held 
in Madrid because of “tech- 
nical problems”, he turned to 
his stockbroker for help. 

William Pritchard, his City 
broker. began with 
Timezone’s brochure on 
BeaconsfiekL It included part 
of an article from the Toronto 
Daily Star saying gold looked 
like a good investment. 

The Daily Star insists, how- . 
ever, that its article, on the 
effect of gold on the world 
economy, had been taken out 
of context. The paper said it 
had only once before beard of 
Beaconsfield — and that was 
from another British investor 
ringing up to find out about 
the company. And that inves- 
tor was being pressured to buy 
the shares by Timezone. 

The brochure gives no 
information about Beacons- 
field beyond the claim that the 
company is operating in the 
new Hemic gold field in 
Northern Ontario. It merely 
gives information about the . 
gold field in general and how 
profitable gold is likely to be. 
it says Beaconsfield is a good 
buy because it owns land with 
geological features “almost 
identical” to Hemlo (though 

the land is 70 miles from the 
Hemlo region). 

Mr Pritchard contacted the 
Mining Association of Can- 
ada. the chief mining lobby 
group, and the Ministry for 
Natural Resources in Ontario, 
but neither had any record of 
BeaconsfiekL Nor has another 
official body in Canada, the 
Prospectors and Developers 

BeaconsfiekL in feci, was 
chartered in Carson City, Ne- 
vada, on December 2, 1985. 
No trading address is listed — 
none is required under Ne- 
vada law. The president is 

‘I don’t think Vm 
the vice-president* 

listed as Philippe Hinjmans, 
of Holland, and a Patrick 
Brady, of Toronto, was given 
as secretary-treasurer. 

The Toronto Daily Star 
tracked down Mr Brady, who 
denied any connection with 
Beaconsfield. He said a Mr 
Polon, also of Toronto, was 
vice-president. When the 
Daily Star found Steve Polon 
and asked if this was true he 
replied: “I don't really think 
this is a feet. I don't think l am 
actually. I don't think I am 
vice-president of that 

A further curiosity is that 
according to the registration in 

Nevada, Beaconsfield issued 
2,000 shares when it was 
incorporated On its share 
certificates, however, is 
printed: “Capital stock 
10,000,000 common shares 
fully paid and non- 
assessable.'' As the company's 
directors are so elusive it has 
not been posable to find 
anyone to explain this 
discrepancy. ‘ 

No one seems to know what 
Beaconsfield is or who runs it 

- except Timezone. So what is 


Timezone is connected to at 
least two other companies — 
Dateline Coporation, also of 
Madrid and Douglas Stewart 
International, of New York - 
and is staffed by several fest- 
talking salesmen. On ringing 
the company myself I was told 
by a Jeffrey Lancer that 
Timezone was no longer 
recommending Beaconsfield 

Instead it recommended an 
American company, Vyquest 
International Capital, which 
was about to merge with a 
West German board-games 
manufacturer called 
Hexagames. Having vaguely 
outlined why the merger 
would produce enormous 
profits for the investor, he 
pressed me to buy shares. He 
said be would reserve 400 
shares worth $800 for me. 
Without my asking for it, I 

received an invoice for the 
shares within the week. 

Vyquest's merger with 
Hexagames may, ofcourae, be 
perfectly genuine— though the 
usual trail of silence has 
prevented me from speaking 
to either of the companies. 

Cold-calling to se& shares is, 
strickly speaking, illegal in this 
country under the 1983 li- 
censed dealing rules. The 
authorities may tighten up on 
the practice when new regu- 
latory arrangements for the 
City come into force in several 
months, but even then polic- 
ing it win be difficult 

Doubt the claims 
of the salesmen 

To protect themselves, 
potential investors should be 
wary of such companies as 
Timezone for two reasons. 

One is the obvious caution 
required in buying shares in a 
company you nave never 
heard of before from someone 
you have never met- The 
company will almost certainly 
be property incorporated but 
whether it really carries on the 
business the share salesmen 
daim for it may be quite 
another matter. 

The other reason is that 
once you have bought the 
shares you may be unable to 
sell them again. You will 

benefit only from whatever 
dividends may be attached to 
them - if you ever receive any 
— but the capital you spent to 
buy them will begone forever. 

One simple example of this 
is a company Timezone was 
touting more than a year ago 
called Seven Sisters utl 
Group, supposedly an oil 
exploration company. The 
company appeared to have no 
exploration leases or agree- 
ments anywhere. Wien irate 
investors who bad been sold 
Seva Sisters shares contacted 
Timezone, they found 
Timezone would not buy the 
shares back or find anyone 
else to buy them. 

To inexperienced investors, 
Timezone? sates pitch sounds 
very convincing. The com- 
pany also produces a pro- 
fessional-looking lip-sheet, 
called Inte rnati onal Dateline 
Report, containing their cur- 
rent recommendations. Bui 
experience with Beaconsfield 
and Seven Sisters suggests you 
should check out every recom- 
mendation m detail before 

■ If the telephone salesman 
cannot answer your questions 
with anything - better than 
vague generalizations, it is 
probably safer to put down the 
receiver there and then.

The loan 



Allow us to present what is surely the 
most flexible business loan available on 
the market today. 

Namely, the Lloyds Bank Business 
Loan. With it you can borrow as little as 
£2000 or as much as £1 million. 

And it also offers you a choice of 
repayment options no other bank can 
compete with. 

Repayment Loan 

If you opt for a straight repayment loan, 
you can have up to 30 years to pay it back. 
And you may also plump for regular . 
monthly or even quarterly payments, 
whichever suits you best. 

Endowment Loan 

You can take advantage of this unique 
option when the term of your loan 
exceeds ten years. Interest is payable 
throughout the whole term, while capital 
is repaid with an endowment assurance 
policy. It usually leads to a healthy cash 
bonus at maturity. No other major bank 
offers this. 

Fixed Interest 

There's a simple advantage attached to 
the fixed rate option. It allows you to 
budget precisely when forecasting your 

Variable Interest 

On the other hand, you may well prefer 
to take advantage of an interest rare at I 

an agreed percentage above our base rate. 

Fixed or Variable Interest 
What’s more, you can switch from a fixed 
rare to a variable rare or vice versa every 
five years if you so wish without any 
charge whatsoever. 

Capital Holiday 

From the outset of the loan, you can defer 
capital repayments for up to two years 
while your cash flow grows ever more 

Stepped Repayments 
Alternatively, stepped repayments may be 
more to your liking. This way, you can 
gradually increase die amount you pay 
over the first two years. 

Early Repayments 

If your business performs better than 
originally forecast you’re entitled to repay 
part or even all of the loan early without 
giving any nonce and without incurring 
additional cost. 

More Than One Lna« 

Vbu can take out as many loans as you 
require, be they for individual assets or 
complete projects. 

Accident and Sickness Cover 
Should you, your partners or your key 
directors be prevented from working 
through injury or illness, Loan Repay- 
ment Insurance buys valuable time by 
meeting repayments as they fell due. 

Death Cover 

This insurance also sees to it rirar in the 
event of the insured person’s death, the 
whole outstanding balance of the loan is 
cleared forth with. 

The invaluable protection afforded 
by Loan Repayment Insurance is avail- 
able at set rates on loans up to £50,000 and 
for periods of up to ten years. 

However well gladly offer individual 
quotations on other loans. 

Whatever your needs in the cut and 
thrust world of business, we can help. 
Simply cut out the coupon and thrust it 
in an envelope.

**We are trying to tackle one of 
the most difficult problems of 
ohl age — loneliness and 
isolation.” says the lady from 
Age Concern. 

The Age Concern organiza- 
tion fights for the interests of 
pensioners and elderly people. 
It Is now emphasizing that 
there is no national scheme to 
give the elderly help with 
telephones. It says: “Tele- 
phones can be almost literally 
a lifeline to the outside world. 
Old people can become so 
isolated. WeVe all read stories 
of people lying dead in their 
homes for weeks.” 

Legislation demands that 
local authorities shoald pro- 
vide a telephone, or assist in 
providing one, for certain dis- 
abled people. But the local 
authorities decide who needs 
this help, and the ertieria 
differ from area to area. 

Those most likely to receive 
sympathetic treatment are the 
elderly who live alone, are left 
alone for long periods, or 
cannot rely on someone to 
ride regular help. Persons 
with restricted mobility also 
have a case for assistance. 

That asstsftance, if granted, 
usually amounts to the cost of 
installation in most cases, pies 
perhaps the occasional 
contribution to the regnlar 
bills. Woold-be applicants 
should inquire at their local 
authority's social services 

Age Concern would like a 
payment scheme for tele- 
hones for the elderly, similar 
to the one-off payments made 
to recipients of supplementary 
benefits. As the new welfare 
legislation comes into force 
and we move from benefit 
payment to repayable loans, 
Age Concern recognizes its 
demands are unlikely to be

Summer spending is 
fine fun, bat what about 
the autimuial belt- 
tightening? AMANDA 
PARDOE explains 
how to get the best from 

For many people, getting the 
most out of the summer 
months means spending a 
fortune. Not only is there the 
annual, or in some cases, bi- 
annual holiday to be paid for, 
but there are all those home 
improvements which need to 
be done. 

At the same time, the shops 
are full of sale bargains and car 
manufacturers are tempting 
you to buy new models in 

Such expenses can easily 
prove too much for the house- 
hold budget and September 
can so easily be the month of 
the summer hangover, the 
time when your bank account 
slips into the red. And being 
overdrawn now costs more 
dearly than ever. 

Free banking is being paid 
for by bank debtors. Forced to 
drop the charges on those 
accounts kept in credit, tire 
Imnh have sought to main- 
tain their profits by increasing 
the cost of an overdraft. 

The charges incurred on an 
overdrawn account foil into 
two categories. 

First, there is the interest on 
the debit balance and, depend- 
ing on whether the borrowing 
has been agreed in advance or 
is simply the result of an 
oversight, the rate may be 4 to' 
percentage points over the 
bank's base rate or even 
higher. Where an overdraft is 
_ eed, an arrangement fee 
may be chaiged. 

Second — and this is where 
the sting comes — every 
withdrawal from the account 
during the charging period is 
subject to a charge although

' Typically, every charging 
period is three months, al- 
though at Uoyds it is monthly.

So a holiday treat can easily

Fortunately, there are ways 
to borrow without overdraw- 
ing your current account For 
instance, when you are 
contemplating a particular 
purchase, such as a television 
ora freezer, but know that you 
cannot afford it for a few 
months, using a credit card 
may be the answer. 

With Access and Barclay- 
card, for example, no charges 

Sales are always immense fun at the time but finding the funds afterwards can be hamming 

with the 

Cards give seven 
weeks’ credit 

are incurred, provided the 
account is paid within 25 days 
of the statement date. Tins 
means that if you nse the card 
just after one statement date, 
repayment will not foil due for 
almost seven weeks. When 
you use either card to obtain 
cash, however, there is no 
period of grace. And. it should 
be remembered that the in- 
terest, 2 per cent per month, is 
calculated on a daily basis, 
which means that the APR is 
26 per cent. 

Of course, there will be 
instances when you know that 
repaying the borrowing in lull 
within a few weeks is not going 
to be possible: The solution 
may be a personal loan. This 
type of borrowing is straight- 
forward, and to the relief of 
the faint-hearted, rarely in- 

volves a meeting 
bank manager. 

On completion of the 
application form, provided 
you have an acceptable 
record, which is usually as- 
sessed by credit-scoring, the 
money can often be credited 
to your account on the same 
day. The banks are pleased if 
you make some contribution 
towards the total cost of the 
purchase yourself 

The minimum amount 
available varies from one 
bank's scheme to another. 
NatWest, for example, will 
lend as little as £200. The 
minimum available from 
Midland is £250. from 
Barclays £300. TSB £400 and 
Lloyds £500. Loans above the 
minimum may be available in 
either £50 or £100 units, 
depending on the bank used. 

The repayment period is 
usually between 12 months 
and five years, depending on 
the purpose of the loan 

outset — the loan plus interest 
is then repaid in equal 
monthly instalments through- 
out the chosen period. 

Now a personal loan repaid 
over 12 months will cost 19.5 

Some banks offer 
continuous credit 

per cent APR from Lloyds, 
Midland and TSB, 19.7 per 
cent APR from Barclays, and 
20.6 per cent APR from 

A point worth noting is that 
if the loan is used to pay for a 
home improvement, the in- 
terest paid may be allowable 
against tax, and the banks will 
provide on request a certifi- 
cate of interest paid. 

Of course, loans are not 
needed just for specific pur- 
poses. It may be that you 
know in advance that mi and 
off throughout the year you 

will need to borrow to meet 
various commitments. In 
such cases, some of the banks 
offer a continuous credit 

Each of these accounts 
works in the same way — you 
calculate your annual borrow, 
ing requirements and divide 
this by 12 to produce a 
monthly figure. Provided the 
bank thinks you are 
creditworthy, and so long as 
your needs are within the 
limits of its scheme, an ac- 
count can be established and 
used reasonably quickly. In 
theory ft takes just a day, but 
banking practice often means 
a wait of an extra day or two. 

The minimum' monthly 
payment with Midland's Save 
ft Borrow and Barclays'

does not offer a comparable 

product. The most you can 
borrow is 30 times your

All withdrawals carry a

Barclays 5 percent net. Lloyds

(Ffood/ight. 50p), 33 courses

Moriey College (61 West- 
minster Bridge Road, London 
SEI 7HT, 01-928 8501) offers 
languages on a daytime family 
basis, with cn&che and child 
care when possible, and makes 
provision for handicapped 
people. In many provincial 
and northern cities there is a 
similar emphasis on family 
and community needs. 

So bow do you start on the 
administrative trail to part- 
time education? One usefol 
step is to obtain the prospec- 
tus that every institution will 
publish. Although these can be 
delayed, the evening cfaysg* 
themselves normally begin in 
the second week ofSeptember. 
The local library usually has 
details and often a display of 
information on courses near 
and around your home. 

Look- up also the various 
year books — ' 1 the Education 
Year Book (Longman), for the 
addresses of local authorities; 
the Directory of Further 
Education (Hobsons, £43), 
with 800 detailed pages of full- 
time and part-time courses in 
UK polytechnics, colleges and . 
other institutions for A-level 
studies and above. 

The Year Book for Adult 
and Continuing Education 

gives addresses of UK soci- 
eties and institutions that also 
provide training, advice or 
grants. Listed within are bod- 
ies as diverse as the Electrical 
Association for Women, foe 
Council for Small Industries 
in Rural Areas, the TUC and 
foe National Association for 
Handicapped Students. 

So what is the cost of first- 
or second-chance (earning? 
Surprisingly little. Inner Lon- 
don residents pay £26 a year 
for adult education up to two 
hours a week, and £13 a year 
for every additional two 
boors. Family groups, people 
on low incomes and students 
of literacy of English as a 
second language pay £1. 

Enrolments for under- 18s 
and foe handicapped are free; 
Outside London foe fees are 
higher at £39 and £19.50 a 
year. Further and higher 
education costs £75 to £108 a 
year reduced to£l for students 
on low incomes. 

Although Sunday trading 
has been temporarily out- 
lawed. learning goes on. Sut- 
ton in Surrey, for example, 
ananges day sessions on occa- 
sional Sundays at its College 
of liberal Arts.' St Nicholas 
Way, Sutton. Surrey SMi 1EA 
(01-661 5060). 

On October 19 from 10am 
to 4pm you may learn book- 
keeping for the sdfemployed, 
how to make speeches or use a 
knitting machine, listen to a 
music recital, hear about life 
in the sea. or repair antique 
dolls. The Sunday session, 
with cold buffet lunch, tea and 
coffee, costs £9. 

But learning is only one ride 
of the equation. New skills 
enrich your life; they do not 
always enhance your income. 
Teaching foe same skills can 
-have . the opposite effect, 
enhancing your Income, but 
not enriching your life: So, 
even if you need extra cash,

ting yourself to going out one

The latest set of rates to 
emerge from, the Securities 
and Investments Board, the 
intended watchdog for inves- 
tor protection, should make 
advertisements for invest- 
ments less alluring, but give 
investors a clearer picture of 
what it is that they are being 

The SIB, do not forget, lays 
down the standard for foe 
investor protection rules 
whidi all investment busi- 
nesses will have to observe, 
come mid- 1987 when foe 
financial services legislation is 
expected to become folly op- 
erational So what foe SIB says 
is important. 

In the case of investment' 
advertisements the SIB is 
generally insisting that they 
should carry appropriate risk 

warnings and be subject to the 
overriding -principle that they 
be dear and fair, taking into 
account what is omitted as 
well as what is indnded 
- The rales will apply not just 
to newspaper advertisements, 
but also to advertisements on 
television, radio, in maga- 
zines, circulars etc 

Sir Kenneth BeriH, chair- 
man of the SIB, says foe new 
rales on advertisments are 
“particulariy important as 
sophisticated risk-bearing 
investments are developed 
and promoted to a rapidly 
increasing percentage of the 
UK population". 

The risk warnings will apply 
to all investment advertise- 
ments apart from those 
containing bare information 
and no direct investment 

The warning cannot be 

hidden away or in miniscule 
print-and must vary to reflect 
the characteristics of different 
types of investmenL 

For example, if the 
advertisement relates to a 
with-profits life policy, foe 
risk warning must make it 
dear that the morns depend 
on the profits earned by the 
life office and the amount of 
these profits that foe life office 
chooses to distribute. 

Moreover, information 
about past performance will 
have to be fairly presented, 
relevant and not unfairly se- 
lected. A unit trust company 
would breach this rule if it 
advertised a range of its funds 
highlighting a number of them 
as notably successful but not 
making it dear that only some 
had been this successful

PART 1 j 


W&M, Janets Robinson’s study course on wsie __ 

Sunday isn’t Sunday without the 
Sunday Times 










For many people, investment 
comes at the bottom of their 
list of budgeting priorities. 
One reason lor this, of course, 
is lhat no matter how hard 
they try, expenditure invari- 
ably and with alarming ease 
equals, if not exceeds, income. 

Another reason is that 
would-be investors often 
think it is essential to have a 
sizeable sum of money to 

Certainly, until dealing 
costs and commissions come 
down (if they ever do) stocks 
and shares will continue to 
require several hundreds of 
pounds to be really worth- 
while. Likewise, most unit 
trust funds on the market, 
though designed to attract 
people of less than substantial 
means, need a minim um ini- 
tial investment of £500 and 
sometimes more. 

Nevertheless, by starting a 
savings plan investors with 
limited resources can still buy 
unit trusts. The schetaes. of 
which there are more than 50 
on the market, are quite 
straightforward — unit trusts 
are bought on a regular basis 
for no less than a specified 

minim um am o unt 

Contributions, which can be 
arranged by standing order 
through the bank, are usually 
made monthly, although some 
management groups offer 
investors a choice. Guardian 
Royal Exchange, for example, 
allows its savings plan holders 

Yon can start with 
the Tninimnm of fuss 

to invest either monthly, quar- 
terly, half-yearly or annually. 

The minimum investment 
accepted under any of the 
schemes is typically £20 a 
month, although lower and 
higher figures may be quoted 
— at the Trustee Savings Bank, 
for instance, the minimum is 
£15, whereas with other 
groups, such as Oppenheimer 
and Waidley, investors must 
save at least £50 a month. 

In practical terms, a savings 
: plan can be started with the 
minimum of fuss. You simply 
need to decide which fund you 
would like to save in and there 
are plenty to choose from. 

So far, more than 50 
management groups run sav- 
ings plans and many of them 
allow investors til select from 
their full range of funds, with 
the exception of any exempt 
unit trusts that are designed 
for charities. Groups offering 
such an unrestricted choice 
include Fidelity, Framlington, 
GT, John Govett, Guardian 
Royal Exchange, Henderson, 
Lloyds Bank, MIM Britannia 
and Save & Prosper. 

Several management 
groups, in contrast, will op- 
erate savings plans with only a 
limited number of their funds. 
Abbey's, for example, is avail- 
able only with its Mastertrust. 
while Barrington just offers 
regular savers its Planned 
Investment Fund 
Hill Samuel, on the other 
hand will run a savings plan 
alongside a selection of its 
funds - the British, Capital, ■ 

W SttY* Yom 
uHirrmrs. HejoO" 


Dollar, Far East, Security, 
Special Situations and Inter- 
national Trusts. 

Apart from the low 
contributions, savings plans 
are attractive because they do 
not tie up your money. 
Encashment can be arranged 
at any time and , unlike insur- 
ance policies, there are no 
penalty charges for 

In fact, it is unusual for unit 
trust savings plans to attract 
any additional charges at alL 
The units simply carry the 
normal bid-offer spread and 
annual management fee. GT, 
however, does keep the first 
three months* contributions, 
but this is the exception rather 
than the rule. 

Indeed under some of the 
schemes, investors are re- 
warded for continuing the 
plan. Such recognition for 
loyalty is shown in a variety of 
ways. You may, for example, 
be given a discount on the 
offer price - with Oppen- 
be icier, for instance, this is 2 
per cent. Alternatively, you 
may be allocated extra units. 

How these bonuses are re- 
warded varies from group to 
group. Arbuthnoi ana Brown 
Shipley, for example, give a 
bonus of 1 per cent and 3 per 
cent respectively on all 
contributions, while 
Framlington, Grofond, Ham- 
bros and Wardley pay a bonus 
of 1 per cent to investors 
saving at least £100 per 
month. And with TSB. anyone 
investing £50 a month gets 2 

Sun Life, on the other hand 
gives 1 per cent to anyone 
saving £50 a month and 2 per 
cent to those making monthly 
contributions of £100. 

A further variation is where 
a bonus is given after the plan 
has been running for a period 
of time. In this situation, the 
bonus may either be awarded 
retrospectively, as with 
Crown. County Bank and 
Foreign and Colonial or else 
calculated on future contribu- 
tions. Examples of the latter 
are Equitable and Fidelity. 

GRE has a combination of 
the two. After five years, 2.5 
percent is paid retrospectively

As far as taxation goes there 
is no difference between a unit 
trust savings plan and a 
standard one-off investment 
in unit trusts. Potential 
libaility to Capital Gains Tax.

units are sold and. of course, . -

exemption limit of £6,300 (for — —

From the investment point ’

investors overcome the prob- *

basis over a long period, 
investors will usually hil both 1 . j *’

This compensates for any "" 

losses which might have been 
sustained through timing the 
investment wrongly, ft also 
means you probably will not

By David Hands* 
Rngby Correspondent 

In a fortnight's time the 
England selectors will sit 
down to choose their first 
team this season, that to play 
Japan on October 11. Like 
careful gardeners, therefore, 
the weeding process must 
begin early and may start this 
weekend when national squad 
members gather at Lough- 
borough University for their 
third get-together since the 
squad of 40 was announced 
during the summer. 

“One of the things we are 
going to have to assess this 
weekend is. who is progressing 
and who is not," Michael 
Weston, the chairman of 
selectors, said. “Quite a few 
players have not been able to 
attend our weekends so far." 
The four national selectors 
and three associate selectors 
will spend this evening 
pondering possible deletions 
or additions to the squad and 
the content of their ambitious 
training programme for the 
next couple of months. 

That programme includes a 
weekend in Portugal, at the 
end of October, when many of 
the squad members who do 
not play against Japan will 
have a runout against a Portu- 
guese team in a practice game. 
There will also be discussion 
of the role of the B team 
which, at present, has no 
fixtures listed. It would be 
worth considering, in that 
respect, the possibility of a 
short internal tour such as that 
regularly undertaken by New 
Zealand's emerging players 

1 have no doubt that such a 
lour would be welcome in the 
peripheral areas of the game, 
such as Cornwall or Durham 
and Northumberland - periph- 
eral only in the sense of their 
geographical location. Indeed 
Cornwall have such a lengthy 
fixture list this season they 
will begin lo take on the nature 
of a county club side, and that 
would be no bad thing. 

Tomorrow England’s squad 
members will be engaged in 
athletic pursuits, associated 
with sprint training and explo- 
sive events, their progress 
being assessed on a points 
chart in which, so far, Rory 
Underwood has distinguished 
himself. The players will 
gather at Loughborough this 
evening, afier their dub 
games, and many of them will 
be coming together from Bath 
where Underwood and his 
Leicester colleagues collide 
with the John Player Special

A. dozen or so squad mem-

additional internationals to 
add spies to a game which, last 
year. Bath won by such a hefty 
margin that Leicester spent 
much of the rest of the season 
pondering its implications. 
For both clubs it is the start of

John Palmer playing his first 
game of the season, will be 

Leicester's tight forwards

Nottingham v Sale 

Nottingham, unchanged from the 
side that drew with Moseley last 
weekend, encounter a team bol- 
stered by the return of Kennck, 
Tipping and Simpson to the pec* 
and Thomas on the wing. All four 
missed the midweek defeat against 

London Scots v Orrell 

Another John Smith's merit table A 
game brings the heavyweight Orrell 
pack to Richmond, serviced by 
Roberts, the scrum half who won 
Hues at Oxford and Cambridge. 
Scottish, lacking four leading back- 
row players, play Tosh (a lock) and 
Marshall at flank forward. 

Saracens r London 

In table B. the Walsh give another 
game on the wing to Pill, the former 
Newport player, and retain Walters 
on the right. 'John is preferred lo 

Light at hooker agamst Saracens, 
for whom Hancock returns. 

Harlequins v Nthmpton 

Guy Steele-Bodger, son of the 
former England prayer and selector, 
comes into the Northampton side at 
hooker instead ol Frankland who 
was concussed against Bristol last 
weekend and musa rest for a month.

Rosslyn P v Met Police 

Cedric Carr has recovered from a 
grom strain to play his fast game on 
the wing this season for Parte who 
have restored Foulds to the second 
row after Heaton damaged ankle 
ligaments in tram mg. 

Neath v Cardiff 

Paul Thorbum. the Wales lull back, 
plays his first game tor Neath

picted They have 15 players unfit or 
unavailable, so Mogndge returns at

Kevin Hopkins returns at centre for

persistent hamstring in|ury but 
Cheeseman is forcetfto continue at 
lock against a Moseley side with 
doubts m midfield over Desborough 
and Amtzen. 

Llanelli v Aberavon 

Liane® stand down two inter- 
nationals, Philip Davies and Philip

season to Aberavon who are with-

appearance in Leicester col- 
ours and if he lives up to 
advance reports, may push for 
a senior place. Roberts, aged 
26, is joining his family in this 
country and turned out for 
Nottingham’s second team 
last weekend. South African 
connexions are, of course, 
something of a sensitive area 
for Leicester, who last year 
found themselves in a legal 
wrangle with the local council 
over the use of the second 
team pitch because of the 
selection of several Leicester 
players for England’s 1984 
tour to the republic.

Wellington (Renter) — The 
New Zealand rugby onion, who 
have sought more information 
from some of the players who 
took part in a rebel tour of Sooth 
Africa earlier this year, still- 
hope to close the matter at the 
International Rngby Board 
(IRB) in London next month. 

Ribs Thomas, tbe anion 
chairman, said that although all 
31 rebels had answered ques- 
tions on whether they were paid 
to make the tear, some clarifica- 
tion was still req ai red. “I am 
bound to say tbe council has sot 
completed its investigations. We 
are not happy with some of the 
rtatements," he said. But 

Thomas added later that the 
muon hoped the matter would be 
“finished with" after the IRB 
meeting on October 9-11. 

The rebel players were 
rumoured to have been highly 
paid for making the tour against 
the wishes of tbe New Zealand 
government and the IRB but 
nothing has been proved. 

The Knglidt Rngby Union 
said earlier this week that it 
remained concerned about al- 
leged breaches of the game's 
strict amateur regulations and 
was “looking forward to receiv- 
ing an explanation" from the 
New Zealand Union.

IER 13 1986 

Lightly-raced Untold 
has class to conquer 
the colts in St Leger 

By Mandarin (Michael Phillips) 

■. In anticipation of perfect 
ground. Untold is mv nap to 
become the third filly in four 
years to win the Holsten Pils 
Si Leger at Doncaster today, 
following in the footsteps of 
Oh So Sharp and Sun 

Untold has run only one 
bad race in her life and that 
was when she finished a 
remote third in the Irish Oaks. 
The very soft ground was all 
against her that day. Bom with 
small feet, she simply got 
stuck in the mud. 

Her real virtues were appar- 
ent again at York last month 
when she stayed on strongly to 
snatch the Yorkshire Oaks 
from under ihe nose of Park 

In the meantime Park Ex- 
press has paid her conqueror 
an eloquent tribute by win- 
ning the Phoenix Champion 
Stakes in Ireland. Rejuvenate 
and Gesedeh also finished 
behind Untold at York and 
have won since. 

While it is reasonable to 
wonder whether a filly with 
Untold's breeding - she is bv 
the milcr Final Straw — will 
last the distance, it is pertinent 

to remember that Oh So Sharp 
was also by a miler. Kris. 

In addition it is .worth 
noting that Greville Starkey 
told Michael Stoute after he 
had ridden her at York that he 
thought stamina would not be 
a problem. And Starkey is 
renowned as a good judge. 

The important thing to 
remember is that Untold has a 
touch of class and the ability 
to quicken the moment her 
jockey asks. Those qualities 
have won the St Leger before 
and I believe that they will 
prove decisive again, es- 
pecially as Untold is still fresh 
and well after a light season. 

While Nelson Bunker 
Hunt's decision to run 
RosedaJe as a pacemaker for 
Swink will obviously improve 
the lot of the colt who has 
already won the Grand Prix de 
Paris over much the same 
distance at Longchamp, I still 
feel that his ploy will also play 
into the hands of others, 
notably Nisnas and Moon 

In any case there are 
grounds for thinking that 
Swink should not be good 
enough and Nisnas is my idea

of the main danger to Untold. 
He would have been my 
choice in her absence. 

While excuses were made 
for Moon Madness and Allez 
Milord after the great 
Voltigeur Stakes at York, the 
feet remains Nisnas was able 
to seize his chance even 
though the slow nature of the 
race did not suit him either. 
Now the word from 
Whatcombe is that Nisnas has 
never been in better trim and 
that the strong pace will suit 
him down to the ground. 

The distance will dearly 
pose no problems for Celestial 
Storm who saw out 1% miles 
well at Goodwood last month 
when be landed the March 
Stakes by three lengths and he 
is strongly landed in New- 
market to give Luca Cumani 
his second taste of success in 
the race following the victory 
of Commanche Run two sear 
sons ago. 

However, I remain un- 
convinced because Celestial 
Storm still has quite a lot to 
find on form in my book. 

If form at the highest level 
means anything at all. the 
finish of the Brian Swift Flying 
Childers Stakes should be 
dominated by Sizzling Melody 
and Carol's Treasure, who 
were both successful over 
today's distance at Royal As- 
cou Sizzling Melody in the 
Norfolk- Stakes; Carol's Trea- 
sure in the Windsor Castle 

Later they clashed in the 
July Stakes at Newmarket 
where Sizzling Melody gave 
Carol’s Treasure 21b and beat 
him by half a length when they 
finished third and fifth respec- 
tively behind Mansooj. It 
should be close again but 
Sizzling Melody is given mar- 
ginal preference. 

Dusty Dollar would only 
have to run as well as she did 
against Sonic Lady in the 
Child Slakes at Newmarket in 
July to win the Sceptre Stakes 
but I am sorely afraid of 
Asteroid Field now that she is 
reverting to a mile after also 
competing well with the best 
over further. 

At Goodwood the maiden's 
allowance can enable the 
promising Beeshi to open his 
account in the Chromacopy 
Stakes at the expense of 
Roman Gunner, Santella Sam 
and Whitstable, while at 
Chepstow 1 envisage Paul 
Eddery landing a double for 
Peter Walwyn on Rhondaling 
(2.45) and Windsor Knot 

puts on 
a show 

By Michael Seely 

Champions present and fn- 
ture were on view at Goodwood 
and Doncaster yesterday. On 
foe Sussex track. Dancing 
Brave stormed home 10 
lengths dear of Ozopnlmin to 
beat Prominent's 13-year-old 
record tune by half a second. 

Khalod Abdulla's winner of 
foe 2,000 Guineas, Eclipse 
and King George VI and 
Queen Elizabeth Diamond 
Stakes is now a 3-1 chance for 
next month's Prix de TArc de 
Triompbe at Longchamp. 

A few minutes later on foe 
Town Moor, Pat Eddery rode 
Don't Forget Me to a hard- 
fought win over Deputy Gov- 
ernor in the Laurent Perrier 
Champagne Stakes. Richard 
Hannon's two-year-old now 
retires for the season with a 
first rate chance of repeating 
foe 50-1 success of Mon Fils in 
foe 1973 2,000 Guineas for the 
Wiltshire trainer. 

The style of Dancing 
Brave's victory was breath- 
taking, even considering the 
poor quality of foe opposition. 
Greville Starkey took a 
contemptuous look over his 
left shoulder two furlongs from 
home before asking foe 
Lyphard colt to produce his 
exhilarating burst of finishing 

“That was tremendous,’' 
said Gey Harwood. “It was 
jest what was wanted. He's 
101b heavier than his best 
racing weight so there most be 
something left to work on. If 
be gets his ground he'll go for 
foe Arc and the Breeders' 

When questioned about foe 
relative merits of Dancing 
Brave and Rainbow Quest the 
winner of last year's Arc, Mr 
Abdulla refused to be drawn. 
“They are both champions," 
said the Saadi Arabian poten- 
tate proudly. 

The same owner's Bellotto 
is favourite at 10-1 for next 
spring's 2,000 Guineas bat the 
33-1 on offer against Don't 
Forget Me after his win in 
Doncaster's group two race 
would appear to represent 
better value. 

Previously successful in 
Goodwood's Lanson Cham- 
pagne Slakes, foe Ahonoora 
colt once again showed his 
quality and courage as he 
repelled the favourite's 

“He's a good horse,** said 
Eddery after recording his :

Solo effort: Dancing Brave pots 10 lengths between himself 
and his opponents in yesterday's Select Stakes at Goodwood 

jockey in bis previous races. 
Don't Forget Me raced in a 
rubber bit yesterday. 

“He's worked in it at 
borne," Hannon said. “Pat 
said that he fought him for a 
bit but then settled. I rate him 
a better horse than Mon FOs, 
who was a bit one-paced. I 
think be's done enough for foe 
season as he's now had four 

The bookmakers were even 
more impressed by foe easy 
win of Michael Stoute's 
highly-regarded newcomer. 
AjdaL whom Walter Swinburn 
rode to a three-length victory 
over GOberto in the Lament 
Perrier Ruse Champagne 
Stakes. Sheikh Mohammed's 
Northern Dancer colt is now 
top quoted at 20-1 for foe first 
of foe colts* classics. 

The trainer was at home at 
Newmarket, feeling a bit ofT 
colour. *Td love to have been 
there to watch him win," he 
said. “Ajdal has pleased me a 
lot in the past 10 days. I’d like 
to give him one more race for 
experience this season, but I 
want to talk to Walter first" 

Gavin Pritchard-Gordon- 
and Henry Cedi were other 
Newmarket trainers, apart 
from Stoute, to saddle win- 
ners. High Tension put him- 
self on target for a tilt at foe 
November Handicap when 
sprinting to a decisive win in 
the Mecca Bookmakers' 
Handicap for Pritchard-Gor- 

“He didn't get the trip in the 
Ebor," said foe trainer, “but 
be still ran a hell of a race and 
the handicap per has dropped 
him 21b for it" 

Cecil was not at Doncaster 
either, having just returned 
from Kentucky, bat after Steve 
Canthen had ridden his 123rd 
winner of foe season on All 
Haste to initiate a Sheik 
Mohammed double in the 
Troy Guaranteed Sweep- 
stakes, Willie Jardine, the 
trainer's assistant, said: 
“We've nothing special 
planned for him but be should 
make a decent four-year-old." 

Earlier in foe afternoon 
Willie Carson had been seen 
at his strongest and most 
effective when driving Ichnusa 
past the post a short head in 
front of Tony Clark on Skean 
in an exciting finish to the 
Swettenham Stud Stakes. 

“She's been off the track for 
a long time after polling a 
muscle in ber first race at 
Leicester in May," said the 
trainer, “and she’s taken a bit 
of time getting over it." 
Confirming that Moon Mad- 
ness was in great heart and 
had every chance of winning 
this afternoon's St Leger, 
Dunlop continued: “The trou- 
ble is that you can't really split 
the colts and they've been at It 
for most of the season. Untold, 
however, is comparatively 
fresh. After Park Express's 
win in Ireland on Sunday, it is 
difficult to look beyond her."

fillies at the Curragh tomorrow, 
promises an exciting re-match 
between Minstrella and Polonia 
who, over the same distance at 
ihe Phoenix Park last month, 
finished first and third in the 
Heinz 57 Phoenix Slakes. The 
race will be diown live in 
BBC2’s Sunday Grandstand at 

It was the contention of 
Polonia's trainer. Jim Bolger, 
that she would have won if the 
race had been run at the 
Curragh. And now his theory 
will be put to the test 
In the interim. Polonia has 
added another valuable prize to 
her score in the Lowiber Stakes 
at York. However, the ground at 
the Curragh is fast drying out 
despite some midweek watering 
and il was on fast ground at 
Ascot that Polonia ran her only 
disappointing race in the Cov- 
entry Slakes. 

I was much impressed by the 
instant acceleration displayed 
by Minstrella when John Reid 
asked her to go and win her race 
last time and while he may have 
made his effort a shade early, 
Minstrella still managed to hold 
on by a short head from Forest 
Flower. Reid seems likely 10 
ride a more patient race lomor-

shire helping diem along, and 
the circumstances for this did 
not arise. Survival was hard 
enough against Hadlee and 
Rice with the new ball, and it 
said a lot for Stephenson’s 
confidence and maturity that 
he scored 32 to Gooch's 34 in 
an opening partnership of 71. 
After Stephenson had been 
bowled in the 24th over, trying 
to pull Afford for a second six 
in the over, Essex collapsed. 

By the end of the 35th over 
they were 97 for five. Gooch

nice half volley. It must be 
very disconcerting for the 

Having revealed exclusively 
yesterday morning that Essex 
had not won at Trent Bridge 
for 21 years, I have since 
discovered that, in feet, they 
have done little else. My 
apologies. The truth of the 
matter is that it is Not-

beaten Essex there since the 
middle 60s, which is even 
more remarkable.

Hampshire foiled as chase 
hots up for second place 

Hampshire's failure to beat 
bring down Sussex at Hove 
yesterday, means that they have 
to beat Lancashire, whom they

at Southampton today, to retain 
any hope of moving above 
Nottinghamshire, and in that 
way join Gloucestershire, pres- 
ently standing in the runners-up 
position behind the champions. 
Essex, with 259 points. Should 
Hampshire succeed, then Not- 
tinghamshire will have been 
thwarted once more, this time 
by Northamptonshire in their 
Iasi match which begins at Trent

Hampshire's thrust for -vio- 
tory had been given a powerful 
boost in a fine innings of I *4 not

passed 1 .000 runs on the way to 
making his second hundred this

Alas. Hopkins faltered and fell 
seven runs short of a hundred 
before Morris made his declara-

Worcestershire made off at a 
great pace, though they had lost

Hand injury 

Geoff Cook, 

Northamptonshire’s captain, 
may be forced to miss his side’s 
final championship match of the 
season against Nottinghamshire 
at Trent Bridge today. He has a 
broken finger. His place may go 
to Alan Fordham. a 21-year old 
batsman from Bedford. 

Scarborough: Yorkshire (7 
points) drew with Northampton- 
shire (3). 

Few crowds are more fiercely 
anxious for their team's success 
than Yorkshire cricket spec- 
tators. About 5,000 gathered 
yesterday to see Yorkshire com- 
plete a win, which overnight 
seemed certain. Instead, North- 
amptonshire took advantage of 
a benign pitch and poor bowling 
to save the match with ease. 

Fbr the onlookers it twisted 
the knife further to watch two 
Yorkshire-born players finally 
complete Northamptonshire's 

Four years ago Ripley was 
allowed to leave Yorkshire be- 
cause it was felt the side had all 
the wicketkeepers it needed. But ' 
he batted for almost five hours, 
compiling a maiden century he 
will never forget. 

When the match was still 
delicately poised, the Middles- 
brough-born Geoff Cook- went 
in at No 9. in spite of the double 
fracture to his right index finger 
that he suffered on Thursday. 
Cook stayed at the crease for 75 
crucial minutes and helped add 
53 before he was bowled by 
Sharp, an occasional offspinner. 
in his third over. 

For some time there had been 
sporadic barracking from those 
anxious to sec Boycott baL He 
needed only eight runs to main- 
tain his sequence of scoring 
1.000 runs every summer since 
1963 l Bui having been asked to 
follow on. Northamptonshire 
were under no obligation to 
make any gestures. 

It was a further ironic twist 
should this prove to have been 
Boycott's final first class match, 
remembering the importance he 
has always placed upon 

Northamptonshire declared 
at 5.20pm leaving Yorkshire no 
time to baL (hough the umpires 

waited in the middle, wondering 
if the players would come out 
for a token over. Boycott shook 
Ripley's hand in congratulation 
as Ripley left the field. 

Yorkshire were without Den- 
nis after lunch because of a 
strained back but their attack 
seldom bowled with proper 
application. Fletcher and Shaw 
delivered many balls which the 
batsmen were able to leave 
alone and Caxrick. the acting 
cap lain, ignored his own and 
Barry’s spin for long periods. 

By lunch Northamptonshire 
had lost Wild and Harper but 
Ripley and Nick Cook em- 
barked on a seventh wicket 
sued which put on 96 m 44 
overs. When Cook edged a low 
catch to first slip, Northampton-

remained. Geoff Cook gamely

Bowlers get ready to 
face India in Test 

Chandigarh. India. (Reuter) — 
Australia's bowlers had a useful 
warm-up for next week’s first 
Tcsl against India when they 
dismissed the Indian under-25 
team for 232 in their first 
innings. Only the opener, 
Navjot Sidhu. with 63, and S 
Kalyani. 62 not out built a 
sizeable score after Sadan and 
Vrswaoath won the toss and 
decided to baL 

Craig McDermon, Dave Gil- 
bert and Simon Davis varied 
length and direction to keep the 
batsmen pinned down. Once a 
second-wicket partnership of 82 
between Sidhu, who hit 12 
boundaries, and Carlton 
Saldana had been broken by 
Gilbert, the middle and lower- 
order offered little resistance. 

Gilbert, playing his second 
match of the tour after missing 

the first (wo one-day inter- 
nationals, finished with three for 
SI and Sieve Waugh took three 
for 46. David Boon led the side 
in the absence of Allan Border 
who was rested. The opening

fizzle out 
as Botham 

By f vo Tennant 

cashire (2 1 pis) beat Somerset (S) 
bv 26 runs. 

The scene was set for another 
lan Botham extravaganza. 
Somerset, requiring 209 to win 
in 35 minutes plus 20 overs, 
were 59 for three when he strode 
to the crease. Seventeen overs 
remained. Alas, there was to be 
no repeal of his big hitting the 

previous day. 

Botham was out for a single 
and Somerset, not for the first 
time this season, folded. Having 
led by 237 on first innings, they 
were bowled out for 182, the last 
wicket felling in the penultimate 
over. Simmons, whom Botham 
punished on Thursday, finished 
with five for 53. 

Other than Botham's first 
innings, it was not a memorable 
match. For one thing, there was 
too much going on off the field 
concerning both counties. It 
does not help the younger 
players in particular. Yet there 
were signs of better days ahead. 

Fairbroiber made a century in 
200 minutes, with eight fours 
and two sixes. It was full of 
graceful strokeplay even if the 
bowling was not of the highest 
calibre. Botham settled for some 
off-breaks and a little gentle 
medium pace off a few 
' paces.StUL it was a commend- 
able effort by Lancashire's bats- 
men to fight their way back into 
the match.

New faces 
to please 
the crowd 

By Michael Berry 

Cumberland and Oxfordshire 
break the familiarity fostered by 
Hertfordshire. Durham, and 
Cheshire when they contest the j 
Minor Counties championship 
play-off at Worcester today. 

In seven previous finals at 
championship and one-day 
level since the Minor Counties 
were reorganized in 1983. either 
Hertfordshire. Durham, or 
Cheshire have always been 
represented. As two fresh feces, 
Cumberland and Oxfordshire 
are therefore welcomed as 
highly acceptable alternatives. 

It will be their first ever 
meeting, Cumberland only hav- 
ing joined the championship in 
1955 and it promises a well- 
matched encounter. David 
Lloyd, the former Lancashire 
and England player, is unavail- 
able for Cumberland, but they 
will have Reidy. also previously 
of Lancashire and the provider 
of 533 runs and 27 wickets in the 
championship this summer, and 
HalliwelL a pace bowler who has 
bagged a county record haul of 
44 wickets this season. 

Oxfordshire, the last cham- 
pions under the old format in 
1982. will include Nurton. a 
veteran opener who has scored 
more than 10,000 runs since 
making his debut in 1963, 
Arnold, a volatile opening 
bowler, and Curtis, a 6ft 4 in 
slow left-aimer who is a former 
Oxford Blue. They also recall 
Hobbins out of recent retire- 
ment to bolster their bowling.

Superb play puts

Africa (68 yesterday) Ires two 
shots further behind. 

Miss Davies's principal chal- 
lenger overnight had been Dale 
Reid, of Scotland, but she was 
overshadowed statistically as 
well as physically by Miss 
Davies at the toil of the field 
and. with a 71. she has declined 
to seven shots behind the leader. 

Miss Davies made an electric 
stan. with a booming drive and 
a deft pitch to two feet at the 
first, followed by another birdie 
from 10 feet at the second. 
When the third extracted three 
putts she responded with two

Scots recover after 
early problems 

Scotland defeated Wales 3-2 
in the foursomes, despite having 
unexpected early problems on 
the final day of the men's 
amateur home internationals at 

With a strong wind making 
scoring modi more difficult than 
on the first two days, only the 
Scots' top pair, Colin 
Montgomerie and Graeme 
Shaw, . were ahead as the 
matches turned for home. How- 
ever, the defending champions, 
England, the only team who 
could deprive Scotland of the 
title, lost their foursomes 
against the Irish — also by 3-2. 

Peter McEvoy and Bobby

Sardinia Cup hits 
the doldrums 

From Barry Pfckthall, Porto Cervo 

Apart from the opening race 
last week, this year’s Sardinia 
Cup series has lacked one vital 
ingredient — wind. With the 
forecasters predicting the same 
sticky conditions throughout 
the weekend, this biennial five- 
race series, modelled on 
Britain's Admiral's Cup 
championship, looks like ending 
up a fiasco, amid a welter of 
protests, recriminations and 

With little prospect of the 
tailenders among the 35-slrong 
fleet returning to Porto Cervo at 
the end of the 385-mile long 
offshore event before today the 
hapless Italian race committee 
are faced with the dilemma of 
postponing today's pro- 
grammed inshore race until 
tomorrow, as half the crews are 
due to fly out, or drawing a line 
on the results after just three 

At 435 pm yesterday the 
Irish-chartered Capricomo, 
skippered by the Italian 12- 
metre skipper, Lorenzo 
Bonolotli, dismissed from the 
Azzurra America's Cup syn- 
dicate last month, appeared to 
be leading the fleet on the return 
(eg through the Straits of 

But with the prospect of the 
seabreeze fading away again last 
night, most yachts were not 
expected to complete this race to 
Hyeres and back until after first' 
light today 

Much of the blame fbr this 
concentrated programme rests 
squarely with the Costa 
Smarelda race committee for 
sending the fleet on the longest 
course option instead of the 154 
or 296-mile alternatives in the 
face of accurate weather fore- 
casts predicting light, variable 
winds throughout this week.

Forsyth slams decider 

By John Watson 

The semi-final verdicts of the 
Guards Clubs autumn tour- 
nament were decided, each m 
four chukkas. at Smith's Lawn, 
Windsor, yesterday. In the open 
section Rackenford Park beat 
Brockhill 3-1 , and Brent Walker 
beat Guards Polo Club 6-5. 

In the handicap element, 
Southfield won their contest 
against La Manga Club (re- 
ceived 4 1 /*) 10-6%. and the 
Centaurs (received %) defeated 
Rosamundo by 516 goals to S. 

Brockhill, with their 13-goal 
team handicap did very well to 
hold their own against 16-goal 
Rackenford until the third 
chukka when a goal from the 
open by Claire Tomlinson and a 
60-yarder by Howard Hipwood 
clinched the victory for 

The Brent Walker-Guards en- 
counter went neck-and-neck 
from start to finish. Mark 
Franklin proved a superior sub- 
stitute for Lord Milford Haven 

in the Brent Walker line-up. It 
was Cody Forsyth who slammed 
home their conclusive goal as 
the last bell rang. 

Southfield put on their best 
performance of the tournament 
to trounce the La Manga Club, 
Martin Glue being their chief 
goal scorer. 

The finals of both the Fiat 
Open and the Fiat Handicap 
trophies will be tomorrow .

Wimbledon the end to all fantasies 


35BC iii~~y 

By Clive White 

The reputation of British 
football abroad has probably 
never been less proud than it 
has in the past week. What 
with the total failure by 
England’s international team 
and the partial failure of 
Wales against Scandinavian 
part-timers, Scotland’s inept 
home draw against moderate 
East European opposition and 
UEFA's further condemna- 
tion of English supporters, it 
has indeed been sullied. On 
top of all that, Wimbledon are 
heading the first division. 

Some might say that the 
continued ban on English 
dubs abroad is just as well. 
The prospect or Wimbledon 
representing England in the 
European Cup is enough to 
prompt outbreaks of hooligan- 
ism by the purists among our 
administrators. Today we 
may be given some idea just 
how crazy is the notion when 
Everton, the former cham- 

pions and undefeated Euro- 
pean tide winners, come to 
Plough Lane for a match 
which win be anything but a 
regular league game. They 
seldom are at Plough Lane. 

Everton are bracing them- 
selves for more of abattle than 
a football match against the 
sort of long range bombard- 
ment that has knocked out 
four of the five first division 
installations that have stood 
in their way this season. 

Mountfield may 
be included 

Curiously, they have included 
in their squad Mountfield, the 
centre back who has been 
bedevilled by a knee problem 
for the last 12 months. Per- 
haps Howard Kendall, the 
manager, is contemplating us- 
ing a similar five-man bar- 
ricade to that whicb 
Wimbledon employed at Wat- 

ford. Mountfield may also be 
cover for Ratdiffe who was 
sick during last week's home 
draw with Queen's Park Rang- 
ers, but, who nevertheless, 
played for Wales is midweek 
without any problem. 

But as the snipers set their 
sights on Wimbledon yes- 
terday Dave Bassett, then- 
chirpy Cockney manager, 
fired back with some 

“Five of the that beat 

England the other night played 
against us for Gdteborg last 
season and we stuffed them 7- 
3,” he said with the sort of 
pride that has been all too 
absent this week. “These for- 
eigners weren't too bloody 
clever on a wet night at Plough 
Lane with us thumping the 
ball into the box.” He added: 
“If British football isn't so hot, 
why do all these foreign dubs 
keep buying our forwards.” 

Bassett, as down to earth as 
his team are most certainly 

not, maintains that his rivals 
today play a -long game, just 
differently. “I remember when 
Liverpool usedto belt thebaH 
up towards Toshack, too. 
They don't now • because 
they’re playing : to different 
strengths. People love ; to. pi- 
geon-hole you. All leans have 
their own way. We don't play 
as we used to three years ago. 
The trouble is these purists 
don’t have to win games and 
trophies. They just sit in their 
armchairs and pontificate;” 

Glyn Hodges, the dub's 
only full international who 
scored last week’s winning 
goal at Watford and was 
associated with the only mi- 
nor British success with Wales 
in Finland, said that people do 
not appreciate what Wimble- 
don do in the final third of the 
field. Hodges, who was play- 
ing alongside Bassett six years 
ago as a 17-year-oM, said: 
“That’s where we do most-of 

our stuff We created a lot of 
goalmouth incident. Since 
fp fnipg up we've realized that 
we'rebetter pfayers than we 
thought Sera of us were 
playing in the fourth division. 
We’ve learned and grown np 

^Physique and strength fig- 
ure to a huge- degree in the 
Wimbledon game Eight of the 
1 2 on duty last week are 6ft or 
more. And there are plenty 
more sturdy young men grow- 
ing in the reserve and youth 
sides. Graham- Taylor, the 
Watford manager, who is 
naturally one of their biggest 
fens -even after last week's 
defeat to the Dons, said: 
“they are very well-drilled, 
good, honest lads. lt would be 
foolish for any first division 
t eam to underestimate them.” 

Everton are not die type to 
do that. They will be relieved 
to hear that there is a doubt 
about the awkward, angular 
Fa sham i, who injured a shoul- 

der in training during die 
week. If an injection rails to 
cure it, Gordon, their 6ftim 
£90,000 simmer signing from 
Swindon, will play instead. 
Wimbledon, who spent 
£350,000 on ground improve- 
ments during the summer to 
increase capacity from 11,500 
to 19,000, have accordingly 

Remarkable feat 
of tbe new boys 

increased seat prices for 
today's game to £13. What- 
ever happens to Wimbledon 
from now until the end of tbe 
season it has been a remark- 
able achievement to top the 
first division nine years after 
joining the league. And to 
think that Dcalainen, the Finn- 
ish captain who plays for 
“undever” G&teboig, said i 
during the week. “The trouble 
withfcngiish football is there's : 
no fantasy.” 1

Second division dubs will be led 
like lambs to the slaughter in 
this weekend’s County Cup 
competitions, with the draws in 
both Lancashire and Yorkshire 
iving scant hope of survival to 

Fulham, in the throes of their 
faiftat revival, could have wished 
fora more rewarding Lancashire 

Cup tie than a visit to Cumbria 
to face Whitehaven. 

Tbe only match with quality 
and pedigree is the Yorkshire 
dash between Castieford and 
Halifax, the match between the 
Challenge Cup holders and the 
champions, and a repeat of the 
Charity Shield match in the Isle 
of Man which was woo by 
Halifax. Home advantage 
should give Castieford.revenge, 
but tiiis is an outstanding game 

Other matches whjcb promise 
reasonable competition between 
the sides are at Warrington, 
where Salford are the via to re, 
and Oldham, where Leigh will 
attempt to improve on recent 
poor form. However, home 
advantage should see Wamng- 
ton and Oldham through. In 
Lancashire. Si Helens will ex- 
pect to run up the points against 
Car lisle. Wigan should, over- 
come spirited second division

Just one day before she flies to 
Poland to compete in next 
week's three-day eveiu 
championships at Bialy B6r, 
Virginia Leng, the world cham- 
pion. is giving her intermediate 
horse. Master Craftsman, an 
outing ai this weekend's 
Tetbury Horse Trials in 
Gloucestershire, which arc 
sponsored by Croft OriginaL 

Mrs Leng’s mother is already 
en route for Poland, driving. the 
horse-box which has.Mrs.Leng'is 
Night Cap and bn Stark’s air 
Wattie on board. 

Like Murphy HiinselC ■ on 
whom Mrs Leng won her fourth 
successive Burgh ley fast week, 
the seven year-old -Master 
Craftsman has been brought on 
slowly —.and so far successfully. 

He has been placed in four horse 
trials already this year. How- 
ever, he will only be doing the 
show jumping and dressage 
today because the selectors do 
not allow membeis of a British 
team to risk themselves across 
country when a championship is 
looming and their ' horses have 
already left the country. 

Captain Mark Phillips, who 
had to withdraw from the team 
for Poland when Distinctive 
injured himself, will have no 
restraints placed on him across 1 
country. He is riding Cartier, 
who had to miss Btuuley after 
treading on a piece ofglass, and 
Bold Approach— both of whom 
compete at Cbatsworth next 
months. The trials are organized 
by Michael and Angela Tucker.

Gallacher still a 
leader despite 
time in heather 


By Mitchell Hatts 

Bernard Gallacher earned a 
share of the half-way lead in 
the Panasonic European Open 
at Sunningdale yesterday in 
spite of tutting the kind of 
.drive which would have the 
-members at the nearby Went- 
worth course, where he is dub 

competed. Most recently he 
beat a hasty retreat from the 
BelTs Scottish Open, retiring 
mid-way through the second 
round complaining of a knee 
injury, and only last week he 

half-way qualifiers to Mura 
an over-par aggregate in the 

professional, urgently seeking European Masters, 
his advice. Gallacher explained: “My 

GajMhCT came to grief at driving is suspect there can be 

the 16th when his drive came 
to an abrupt halt only 100 
yards from the tee, leaving 
him with an awkward recov- 
ery from the heather. 

Yet even Gallacher could 
see the humorous side as he 
even tally marked a six on his 
card, so being compelled to 
settle for a share of the lead 
with the Australian Peter 
Fowler (68), after finishing 
with a 68 fora seven under par 
aggregate of 133. 

“I didn't top it - honestly!" 
said Gallacher. “It was more 
of a smothered drive. If the 
heather hadn't been so tall 
down there, then maybe I 
would have got away with it" 

What allowed Gallacher to 
keep his spirits high was the 

no doubt about that, but it 
seems to me that the older you 
get the more difficult it is to 
keep the motivation going. 

I've always played gpTf 
charged-up, with the adrenalin 
flowing, and I suppose I’ve 
been waiting for something 
like this to bap nurse it back." 

Gallacher, now aged 37, has 
sought advice fromlxrth Tony 
Jacklin and Lee Trevino this 
season and he is steadfastly 
attempting to slow his swing 
down. “They’ve been telling 
me to do that but I've always 
been a naturally fast swinger 
and it's difficult to try and 
change it" he said. 

“The problem is that I'm 
not a Trevino, who seems to 
be able to change gear with 
one drive to another, but a 
player who has always relied 
upon bitting every shot flat 

Gallacher has also reached 
that point in his career where 
he finds it difficult to pack a 
bag and go searching for 
success on the tour, which is 
hardly surprising as he has a 


knowledge that he was back in 
the lead for the first time since 
his last victory in the Jersey 
Open in 1984. 

• The former Ryder Cup 
player has dipped on one 
banana skin after another this 
season, with a highest finish of 
21st in the 1 5-stroke play 
tournament in which he has 

lucrative business at home at 

Even so, he still emphasised 
that he possesses the ability to 
regain winning form by 
gathering four birdies in an 
excellent outward half of 30 in 
which he almost made a hole- 
in-one, when his five iron tee 
shot at the short 4th struck the. 

Fowler is regarded as a slow 
player and his deliberate ap- 
proach in the first round led to 
a fine of £100. The paradox is 
that he is well aware that be 
performs better when he plays 
raster and that was evident as 
he composed a fine second 
round in which he gathered 
five birdies. 

Nick Faldo, who led after 
his course record first round of 
62, was unable to discover the 
same momentum as he toiled 
to 72, leaving him one stroke 
adrift; of the leaders and 
alongside Greg Norman (67), 
Ken Brown (67) and the 
Spaniard Jose Rivero (66). 

Even Severiano Ballesteros 
struggled to cope with a 
difficult swirling wind as be 
dropped three shots in succes- 
sion from the 15th to finish 
with a 72 to be three shots in

Hudson wants Botham and 
Richards for Lancashire 

By Ivo Tennant 

' Tim Hudson, Ian Botham's 
former agent, said yesterday 
he has offered Botham and 
Vivian Richards, both of 
whom are to leave Somerset, 
£50,000 each to play for 
Lancashire in 1987 and 1988. 
Hudson is hoping to oust 
Cedric Rhoades, Lancashire’s 
chairman of 22 years, in order 
to bring lhs about 

Hudson, an eccentric en- 
trepreneur. and a Lancashire 
life member would want to 
become chairman himself. He 
feels he can achieve this 
through the backing of the 
dub's members. Botham, he 
said, would give him his 
answer by next Friday. 

Hudson, who is renouned 
for his unusual ideas, lifestyle, 
dress and dialogue, was. a year 
ago. intent on making Botham 
“the first millionaire rock 
n'roll cricketer in the world". 
It was not a dream that lasted.

Pools are 

The International Squash 
Rackets Federation has abol- 
ished the controversial inter- 
mediate pools system for the 
1CI Perspex world team 
championship scheduled for 
the Royal Albert Hall in 
October 1987. Under the old 
system it was possible for a 
team to “throw" a pool match 
to gain a more suitable semi- 
final tie. 

The introduction of the new 
system will mean that pool 
matches will be followed by 
traditional quarter and semi- 
finals at the Royal Albert HalL 

Noah pulls out 

Yannick Noah, the second 
seed, has milled out of the 
$31 5,000 West German Open, 
starling on Monday in Ham- 
burg, because of injury. Tne 
Frenchman is the second big 
name to withdraw. Mats 
Wilander, originally the lop 
seed, elected to take a two- 
month break after last week s 
US Open. 

Vivian Richards and Joel 
Gamer, who are not being 
retained by Somerset, make 
their final appearances for the 
county tomorrow at Taunton 
against Derbyshire in the 
John Player Special League 
(Ivo Tennant writes). 

Neither will play in the 
county championship match, 
also against Derbyshire, 
which starts today, but lan

to leave the comity in support 
of the two West Indians, wfll

dismissing Hudson for 
commenting on his lifestyle. 

Hudson, who lives not for 
from Old TraFford is report-, 
edly a self-made millionaire, 
although it is sometimes to 
distinguish foci from fiction in 
his life. “I guarantee the 
cricketers my personal 
money.” he said- It is time Mr 
Rhoades made way for a 

young rebel with plans to put 
Lancashire back on top and 
bring more youngsters 
through the turnstyles than 
Old Trafford has seen for 

“1 have spoken to a senior 
committee member. Murray 
Birnie and he was excited at 
the prospect of both players 
coming to the dub," Hudson 
said. “I am breaking no TCCB 
rule by offering them my own 

Hudson will face consid- 
erable opposition to his plans 
from Rhoades, who has criti- 
cised Botham's lifestyle and 
approach to cricket in the past. 
Rhoades is currently on holi- 
day and Lancashire's annua] 
general meeting will be heid in 

“I am sure I will have huge 
support from fellow Lan- 
cashire members if I stand 
against the chairman on this 
issue," Hudson said. “The 
chairman has grown okL It is 
time for changes."

Graeme Felt who won the 
Commonwealth 3,000 metres 
steeplechase title for Canada, 
has been cleared to compete 
for Newham and Essex Bea- 
rn the GRE men's Gold 
'up final at Cwmbran today. 

Cup organizers queried his 
eligibility as he lives in Can-

runner can compete because 
he only holds a British pass-

Mark defends 

Captain Mark Phillips win 
ride Cartier and Bold Ap- 
proach in an attempt to retain 
his Chatsworth Audi three- 
day horse trials title on Octo- 
ber 2-5. Captain Phillips won 
last year’s inaugural event on 
the seven-year old Distinctive, 
but is likely to foce stiff 
opposition from the former 
world champion, Lucinda 
Green who has nominated 
three mounts - Count de 
Bolebac, Willy B and 
Shannagh. The overall prize 
fond has been raised by the 
sponsors to over £13,000 with 
a first prize of £2,500. 

Solent signing 

Deora Marsh, a 25-year-old 
6ft 7in American forward 
from Ohio, who has been 
basketball for Team 
in Ireland, has joined 
Solem Stars. Solent have also 
signed Nick Bums who has 
returned to the dub from 

Worthing after the Sussex club 
folded up, but Ken Nottage, a 
fellow England international, 
has departed, for his former 
dub, Sunderland. 

Bryan Robson, the Engtend 
and Manchester' United cap- 
tain, returns ' to competitive 
action today following his 
shoulder operation D weeks 
ago, knowing that some super- 
human exploits' will be ex- 
pected of him by Old 
TraffortTs restless thousands. 

Anything less than victory 
against Southampton will be 
unacceptable, with Robson 
back in the side, no matter bis 
state of fitness, there can be no 
more excuses for failure. 

It would certainly be -an 
appropriate moment for 
United, bouomof the table, to 
register then 1 first victory of 
the season and Robson prom- 
ised yesterday, that he would 
not be taking things easy. He 
said, with a determination 
that makes one wince for this 
brilliant but brittle individual: 
“I will play my normal game.

A fit and committed Rob-

Atkinson, . his beleaguered

pathetic sight of Bryan Rob- 
son, inevitably limping out of 
the World Cup debacle against 
Morocco in the summer, will 
live with thousands offootball 
followers. There was physical 
proof of the restored Robson 
in midweek when, with typical 
exuberance and good timing, 
he scored twice in the 3-0 win 
against Linfield, the Irish 
champions, in Belfast He also

deputizing for Robson ascap- 
tain, and scored the equalizing 
goal,- said;* 4 As for as I'm 
concerned we’re on our way 

Not all United’s problems, 
though, will be solved by the 
return of Robson, the mes- 
siah. West Ham's three goals 
at Old Trafford again high- 
lighted a frailty in the centre of 
defence that was not always 
evident last, season, while the 
attack carried the fight to the 
enemy. Indeed their defensive 
record was the best in the first 

But . while a new centre back 
partner, for McGrath is ur- 
gently required, the accent at 
Old Trafford must always be 
on attack and without Rob- 
son, physically, and Hughes, 
mentally. United were found 
wanting before this season's 
signs of impotence. Daven- 
port has yet to make the 
transition from a successful 
club to a big one. and 
Stapleton's once prolific offer- 
ing dried up to a mere seven 
goals last season.

Torch lit in an 
ancient capital 

Seoul, Sooth Korea (AP) - 
The torch for the Asian Games 
was lit yesterday (Friday) in a 
colourful ceremony that dated 
back to Korea's ancient SOla 
kingdom. The ceremony was 
held at Kyoogju.0 the capital 
of the 57 BC to 935 AD Silfa 
dynasty. More than 1,000 
runners wfll carry the torch

northwest to Seoul, where it 
will ignite the flame in die 
ChamsO sports complex that 
will burn throughout the 
Games from September 20 to 
October 5. 

More than 5,000 athletes 
from about 29 countries are 
scheduled to compete in the 
equivalent of the regional 
Olympic. The' first relay nm- 

ner was Lee Chang-lmn, Sooth 

Korea's gold medal winner in 
the marathon event at the 
1958 Asian Games in Tokyo. 

Games organizers said the 
torch will pass through 61 
towns and cities, where folk 
and other festivals wOl be held 
to commemorate and celebrate 
the Asiad. The government of 
President Oran Doo-Hwan) 
s said the games win 
contribute greatly to South 
Korea’s international stains. 

Mare interest also has been 
generated in the Asian Games 
this year because Seotrf also 
has been selected as the site of 
the 1988 Olympic Games.

Aston Villa last night cre- 
ated a new wave of interest in 
the transfer market when they 
_eed to sell Steve Hodge, 
their England World. Cup star. 

Newcastle United have led 
the field with an enquiry for 
the former Nottingham Forest 
left side midfield player who 
made such an impact in 
Mexico alongside their own 
Peter Beardsley. . 

However, other- big clubs 
will be quick to follow suit in 
an attempt to secure the player 
who stepped ’ into Bobby 
Robson’s woridCttpsqnad so 
successfully as a replacement 
for Bryan Robson, the Jin- 
gland captain. 

Villa have promised to keep 
Newcastle informed but will 
want to assess the total in- 
terest and fee availaMe.before 
making a derision. 

Graham Turner, the Aston; 
VTHa manager, visibly an- 
noyed at Hodge leaking the ; 
news of his unrest just prior to 
the international with Sweden 
in Stockholm last Wednesday, 
dealt speedily, with the issue 
when the player returned to 
training yesterday. 

After a • 20-minute dis- 
cussion with Hodge, Turner 
announced that he would be 
prepared to sen him “when 
the timing and the price is 
right for Aston Vina.” He 
added: “it may be a week. . It 
may be a year but be will be al- 
lowed to . leave when it 'is 
suitable to the club.” 

Hodge declined'' to discuss 
his reasons for wanting "no 
leave but they ..wen; -already

well known. When Villa were 
threatened by relegation last 
season and he was forced to 
pullout of an England squad 
he made it dear he wanted to 
be with a successful dubi 
He. settled down briefly 
when Villa spent up to 
£!6miIlion on nine new play- 
ers to survive in division one 
and Robson kept his promise 
to give . him his England 

Yet things came apart again 
once this season started, vilb 
lost their first three games and 
Hodge’s Mexico form was 
never in evidence. He was 
virtually anonymous in. last 
Saturday's home defeat by 
Oxford and told Turner after- 
wards he was considering 
asking.for a move. 

Villa have few reservations 
about releasing him. They fed 
that his poor form has been 
part of the reason for the 
team's bad start 
Hodge is out of the team 
against Nottingham Forest at 
City ground today because he 
returned from Stockholm with 
an injury. “Had be been fit he 
would still not have been 
selected", the Villa manager 

-No. official price has been 
placed on Hodge but dearly 
Villa will expect the fee in the 
region of £1 million having 
paid nearly half that sum for 
him just- over a year ago. 

“We wifi certainly want for 
more than we paid for him” 
Turner said. “He was not an 
England World ' Cup : player 
when we signed hint.” 

One of the problems of dwin- 
dling attendances when tele- 
vision was being blamed as a 
contributory factor, was that 
how can yon expect children 
growing np suddenly to want to 
go and see a full match when 
they’ve been brought up on a 
diet of 20-minote bighlighrs. 

Now, under the live plan, 
they are at least seeing the 90 
minutes so people can judge 
football for what it is. If they 
don’t Kke it, then all we've 
done is shown ft in its honest 
Com. And if they do then they 
can go to a game muT know 
what to expect I fed that so 
far foe live matches hare been 
a success on (derision. 

The emphasis in term of 
audience figures has indicated 
that a live match on a Sunday 
afternoon is more attractive at 
the moment than a recorded 
programme on a Saturday 
night That is obviously some- 
thing to do with the soda] 
habits of tiie country. 

Abo with highlights, you 
can never please everyone. I 
used to spend a lot of the 
following week after a pro- 
gramme trying to explain to 
people why certain things were

Bishop is back after 
promise to be good 

David Bishopissettbmake 
a dramatic return, to first team 
rugby for his dub, Pontypool, 
today. The 25-ycar-oki scrum- 
half sentenced to one month’s 
imprisonment for. assaulting 
an opponent during a match 
October, will tom out 
istEbbw Vale, his former 
; at Pontypool Park.

But the Welsh Ri 
Union, who are. 
until Bishop's appeal is-i 
m London next week, are 
conducting their own inquiry, 
fnto the incident and may 
eventually ban him. 

Bishop, who was convicted 
at Newport Crown Coprttest 

month of assaulting C hris 
Jarman, lock for Newbridge, 
has promised Pontypool th at 
he will improve his behaviour. 

Tony Simons, Pontypool’s 
match secretary, said yes- 
terday: “We have had raiiwf 
with David and he has given 
.us assurances as to his future 
conduct. He -always wanted to 
continue' his rugby career with 
Pontypool and the dub's 
match committee is, there-

for selection. 

“The dub are mindful that 
Bishop has given vastly more 
pleasure to many people than j 
caused offence.” 

Bishop will team ui
