THE 


Reagan ready 
to ratify test 
ban treaties 



TIMES 


TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 23 1986 


• President Reagan set the mood for 

? > ? trolls to'his address 
to the UN General Assembly 

• He said the US was ready to take 
steps to ratify two important 1974 
treaties umitmg nuclear tests 


President Reagan an- 
nounced yesterday that the US 
is prepared immediately to 
take major steps on a range of 
important arms control issues. 

He told the United Nations 
General Assembly that the US 
would: 

• Now move towards ratify- 
ing two important 1974 Trea- 
ties banning underground 
nuclear testing. 

• Offer a treaty to Moscow 
banning any deployment of 
strategic defence weapons for 
7% years. 

• Be ready for an immediate 
interim agreement on me- 
dium-range weapons in 
Europe. 

Mr Reagan said there had 
been real movement in the 
whole field of arms control 
recently. This gave him hope. 
Apart from the pall cast over 
eveiything by the Daniloff 
affair, he suggested that the 
US and the Soviet Union 
could now make real progress 
in achieving big cuts in 
nuclear weapons. 

On the question of the US 
joining in a nuclear test ban 
treaty, he told the General 
Assembly that the US had 
proposed new ideas on 
verification, which it regards 
as essential before ratifying 


• He also revealed details of his offer to 
Mr Gorbachov on the delayed deploy- 
ment of the Star Wars programme 

• The Stockholm Security Conference 
talks finally adopted a package of East- 
West arms control measures

nuclear weapons, the US was 
prepared to discuss ways to 
implement a step-by-step par- 
allel programme of limiting 
and finally ending nuclear 
testing. 

His remarks to the packed

Assembly were a clear re-

Mr Mikhail Gorbachov, the 
Soviet leader, for Washington 
to join Moscow is a nuclear 
test moratorium. US officials 
have admitted that the Ameri- 
can refusal to do so has been 
damaging to the US image in 
public opinion. 

The President insisted that 
the US remained committed 
to a "total ban" on testing in 
the long term. But he gave a 
warning, increasingly voiced 
by officials here recently, that 
the world must still rely on 
nuclear weapons to deter war. 
The safety and reliability of 
the US deterrent were them-

for 7 l h years. 

He said the US, while 
committed to SDL, recognized 
that both the offensive and 
defensive sides of the strategic 
equation had to be addressed. 
He therefore offered to sign an 
agreement now with Moscow 
on the testing and deployment 
of strategic defence. 

Under its terms, both sides 
would limit themselves until 
1991 to testing and develop- 
ment to see if the system was 
feasible. After that a new 
treaty, signed now, would 
provide that if either side 
wanted to deploy the system, 
it had two years to negotiate a 
plan for sharing SDrs bene- 
fits. If the two sides could not 
agree, either would be free to 
deploy SDI after a further six 
months' notice. 

Mr Reagan, who said be had 
just received a reply from Mr 
Gorbachov which he was 
studying very seriously, said 
recent movement in arms 
control issues gave him hope. 
The Russians’ proposals in the 
summer represented “a -seri- 
ous effort”.

Champagne toast 
for arms accord 


Stockholm {Reuter) — The 
Stockholm disarmament talks 
do&d yesterday, after^ nearly 

mal adoption of Europe’s first 
conventional arms control 
agreement since the Second 
Wortd War. 

It took only 40 minutes at 
the 178th and last plenary 
session of the 35-nation talks 
to adopt - three days later 
than expected — the package 
of measures which all sides 
said would make Europe a 
safer place in which to live. 

During the solemn cere- 
mony the clocks remained at 
minutes before 11 o’clock, the 
lime they were stopped last 
Friday night when it became 
clear the conference would 
overrun its deadline. 

Adoption of the agreement 
was immediately welcomed 
by the West German Foreign 
Minister, Here Hans-Dietrich 
Genscher, who said it was an 
encouraging step towards a 
second US-Soviet summit. 

He said the accord showed 
substantial arms control ag- 
reements between East and 
West could be achieved. 

The Soviet delegation head, 
Mr Oleg Grinievsky. said the 
agreement showed detente 
had plenty of reserves, and 
that “common sense and 
goodwill had deep roots". 

His United States counter- 


part, Mr Robert 'Barry, said 
success in Stockholm should 
provide positive impulses for 
other arms control and secur- 
ity negotiations. 

The formal proceedings 
were followed by a champagne

reception where delegates 
toasted the new accord. 

Mr Sten Andersson, the 
Swedish Foreign Minister, 
said the conference had 
achieved concrete results, and 
was therefore a signal of hope. 

One of the major issues of 
the new agreement commits 
the 35 signatory states ' to 
giving 42-day advance warn- 
ing of military exercises 
involving more than 13,000 
troops or 300 tanks. 

A system of observing for- 
eign troop exercises and ins- 
pecting suspected contraven- 
tions of the accord has also 
been de-vised. 

Id addition, countries must 
start swapping annual calen- 
dars of wargames and must 
give extra wanting of larger 
manoeuvres. 

The measures represent a 
large improvement on the pre- 
vious agreement governing 
European troop exorcises 
contained in the 1975. Final 
Act of the Helsinki European 
Security Conference.

Alliance defence policy 

Steel’s way cleared 
on nuclear issue 

By Robin Oakley and Philip Webster 

Mr David Steel was heading cent of the British electorate 
last night fora victory over the backing the Government's 
>r his party 


anti-nuclear wing of 
after a conciliatory speech by 
Dr David Owen at the Liberal 
assembly in Eastbourne. 

The party now. has freedom 
of manoeuvre to negotiate an 
agreed Alliance defence pol- 
icy. 

By. concentrating on the 
Alliance's commitment to 
disarmament as well to 
“sound defence", stressing 
that they were inter-linked. Dr 
Owen made it easier for Mr 
Steel, in today's defence de- 
bate, to secure agreement on a 
policy which does not rule out 
the retention of a British 
deterren| after Polaris. 

Last.mghs Mr Steel issued a 
strong defence of the Euro- 
pean defence strategy which 
he is pursuing with Dr Owen. 
In a speech to parliamentary 
candidates he emphasized 
that polls showed only 13 per 


backing the 
Trident programme. 

“Ours could be the most 
effective value-for -money de- 
fence policy on offer to the 
electorate", he said. 

Like Dr Owen, he empha- 
sized the possibilities for 
disarmament but he urged the 
parly to leave their leaders free

The world's youngest heart-long transplant patient, a 10-week-old boy, given a chanfy of life 
by Professor Magdi Yacoob at Harefield Hospital, west London 

Baby has 
heart-lung 
transplant 

By Thomson Prentice 

A 1 0- week-old baby boy was 
recovering in hospital yes- 
terday after becoming the 
world's youngest heart-lung 
transplant patient. 

The baby, from north-west 
London, was “satisfactory" in 
an intensive care unit at 
Harefield Hospital west Lon- 
don after the 616-hour opera- 
tion which was made possible 
after donor organs from a five- 
day-old baby m Belgium were 
made available at the wee- 
kend. 

The operation was carried 
out by Professor Magdi 
Yacoub, tite ’leading trans- 
plant suTgeon at the hospital, 
soon;after midnight; last Fri- 
day night ft ended at about 
730 on Saturday morning. 

Details were, only announced 
yesterday. 

The baby boy, who has not 
been named at his parents’ 
request was born with a single 
ventricle in bis heart, trans- 
posed arteries and a missing 
mitral valve. 

His condition was di- 
agnosed soon after birth and 
he was in hospital for three 
weeks before the operation. A 
transplant was the only hope 
for his survival. 

Such operations for babies 
have been rare, largely be- 
cause of the odds against a 
suitable donor organ becom- 
ing available. “In addition 
potential donor parents are 
often too distressed to give 
their consent." a spokesman 
for the North West Thames 
Health Authority, which cov- 
ers Harefield, said yesterday. 

Two years ago Professor 
Yacoub carried out a heart 
transplant on a 10-day-old 
baby girl Hollie Roffey, who 
survived for 18 days. 

Since then 68 patients at 
Harefield have undergone 
heart and lung transplants and 
45 of them are still alive. 

The previous youngest pa- 
tient was a three-year-old girl, 

Kirsty Vowfes, who had her 
operation last February. 

Yesterday the .baby boy was 
breathing with the help of an 
artificial ventilator.

Plea to solicitor after 
two gunshot deaths 


Police were last n: 
searching for a solicitor 
the French woman with whom 
he was living and her daugh- 
ter, aged three, were found 
dead from gunshot wounds in 
the bedroom of his eighteenth 
century country home near 
Sheffield. 

Her son. aged five, was last 
night critically ill in hospital 
with severe head wounds. 

Police named the solicitor 
as Mr Ian Wood, aged 37, a 
former secretary of the Shefc 
field Law Society and current 
clerk to the local tax 
commission. 


By Ian Smith 

Detectives were called- to 
Ughill Hall a rambling 18- 
bedroom mansion in the 
farming village of Dungworth, 
about 12 miles from Sheffield, 
by a neighbour early yes- 
today. In an upstairs bath- 
room they found the body of 
Mrs Danielle Ledez, aged 38. 
and in an adjoining playroom 
lay the body of her daughter 
Stephanie. Next to her was her 
brother Christopher. 

Det Chief Supt Robin Her- 
ald, head of South Yorkshire 
CID, appealed, for Mr Wood, 


who may be armed, to get in

whole situation could change

tackle the defence issue head- 
on despite his unpopularity 
with the Liberals for nearty 
splitting the Alliance over the 
report of its joint commission 
on defence in the summer, was 
not given the standing ovation 
which the SDP accorded last 
week to Mr Steel 
But there was sustained 
applause for his carefully cal- 
culated speech, which clearly 
pleased the Liberal leadership 
and even won acclaim from 
Liberal MPs who are luke- 
warm about the Alliance's 
present defence posture. 

Mr Paddy Ashdown. Lib- 
eral MP for Yeovil described 
Dr Owen's speech as “useful 
helpfuL realistic and straight 
one that leaves room for the 
liberal viewpoint”.

Israeli 
troops 
poised to 
attack 

From Robert Fisk 
Beirut 

Israel appeared poised to 
stage a mass attack on its 
Lebanese guerrilla enemies 
last night as several thousand 
Israeli troops were deployed 
just inside her frontier and 
also within Israel's occupation 
zone in southern Lebanon. 

Eyewitnesses in the south of 
Lebanon and in northern Is- 
rael said they saw armoured 
personnel carriers been car- 
ried northwards on large mili- 
tary truck transporters. 

Other reports spoke of ar- 
mour and heavy artillery be- 
ing gathered along the Israeli 
frontier and south of Bint 
Jbeil inside the occupation 
zone and just south of the 
United Nations force’s area of 
operations. 

The deployment, on the eve 
of a United Nations debate on 
Lebanon, was said to be the 
largest massing of Israeli 
troops since the bulk of the 
Israeli army was withdrawn 
from Lebanon last summer. 

A full-scale military con- 
frontation between the guerril- 
las in southern Lebanon and 
the Israeli army therefore 
seemed inevitable last night 
after further threats by both 
the Israelis and the pro- 
Iranian Hezbollah movement 
to bunch new attacks against 
each other. 

UN troops in southern 
Lebanon, where French sol- 
diers were still redeploying 
yesterday after the series of 
attacks upon them by Shia 
Muslim gunmen, were faced 
with the prospect of Israeli 
forces moving through their 
zone in. order to reach the 
guerrilla area to the north. 

It was possible, however, 
that the Israelis were intend- 
ing to send their troops 
through a gap in the United 
Nations line into a mountain 
corridor, leading to the Chris- 
tian town of Jezzine which is 
controlled by the pro-Israeli 
‘South Lebanon Army’ (SLA) 
militia and which overlooks 
the city ofSidon. 

Reports from southern 
Lebanon last night spoke of 
several, thousand Israeli tro- 
ops deploying with armour 
and heavy artillery behind 
their frontier in apparent 
preparation for an advance 
into the Israeli-occupied bor- 
der strip to attack the guerril- 
las further north. 

There was no confirmation 
of this from the Israelis al- 
though there has been in- 
creased Israeli air activity over

Warning 
by Hurd 
on drugs 
slavery 

By Richard Evans 
and Michael Horsnell 

Mr Douglas Hurd, the 
Home Secretary, last night re- 
emphasized in a major speech 
the Government's concern at 
the growth or the illegal drug 
trade. 

At the same time, another 
Home Office minister and one 
of Scotland Yard's most se- 
nior officers gave dire and 
specific warnings of the new 
threats the drugs trade in 
Britain is beginning to pose. 

Mr Hurd told Tories in 
Newcastle upon Tyne that the 
hard drugs industry was “the 
modern equivalent of the 
slave trade” and revealed 
startling new- figures about 


Addiction unit 


British heroin seizures: up 
threefold since N82 and 10 
limes since the late seventies. 

Earlier, his junior minister. 
Mr Day hi Mellor. who heads 
the Government's anti-drags 
campaign and has just re- 
lumed from a tour of South 
American cocaine-producing 
countries, made the gloomy 
prediction that cocaine smug- 
gling into Bn lain will increase 
“dramatically” in the next tew 
years. 

The Metropolitan Police's 
Assistant Commissioner. Mr 
John Dcllow. announced that 
British organized crime syn- 
dicates were now estimated to 
be making more than 
£500 million a year from drug 
trafficking. 

Mr Hurd said the Govern- 
ment was wholly committed 
to doing everything possible to 
fight the drugs trade but that it 
would lake years 10 reverse the 
tide. 

He fiercely denied recent 
criticism that police had inad- 
equate resources to pursue 
drug traffickers and an- 
nounced that special drug 
units, already established in 
five regional crime squads, 
would become operational in 
five more squads by the end of 
the month. 

He said that the anti-drugs 
crusade launched last week by 
President and Mrs Reagan 
showed once more how “this 
evil spans the globe”. 

“We are faced with the 
modem equivalent of the 
slave trade. Throughout the 
world, from the richest states 
to the poorest, people fall 
victim, their bodies wrecked 
and enslaved to heroin or 
cocaine. Alongside the drugs 
trade grows corruption : its

Fleming expulsion 


Miami (Reuter) — An im- 
migration judge yesterday or- 
dered ihe expulsion from the 
United States of John Flem- 
ing. who is wanted for ques- 
tioning about Britain's biggesi 
robbery, a £26 million gold 
theft near Heathrow Airport. 


Immigration officials said 
the order would not be carried 
out forat least 24 hours to give 
•the Briton's lawyers time to

ranking panel of the US Im- 
migration and Naturalisation 
Service. 


Education to top 
Tories’ agenda 

By Richard Evans and Nicholas Wood 


Deep-seated anxiety among 
Conservative Party, members 
about the slate of Britain’s 
schools is reflected in a record 
number of motions on educa- 
tion in the agenda for next 
month's party conference, 

P The total of 1 52 resolutions 
on the politically sensitive 
issue submitted by constit- 
uencies for debate is 50 per 
cent .more than for topics such 
as the economy and law and 
order. 

Criticism of : the way the 
Government presents its case 
and policies to the public 
again rears its head with 90 
resolutions, and amounts to a 
challenge 10 Mr Norman 
TebbtL party chairman, to 
show that the recent min- 
isterial changes can pay 
dividends. 

Nearly ?0 of the education 
motions make specific, ref- 
erence to. the need for a radical 


system by calling for such 
measures as tax relief on fees, 
vouchers or the return of 
direct gram schools (“Crown 
schools”) or the 1 1-plus. 

Mr Kenneth Biker, Sec- 
retary of State for Education 
and Science, will respond for 
the Government. As reported 
in The Times last week, he is 
expected to announce plans 
for about 20 government- 
funded secondary schools 
specializing in technical sub- 
jects for inner city . areas. 

The change in the concerns 
and priorities of the Tory rank 
and file is reflected by the fact 
there are only six motions .on 
trades unions, the smallest 
number for yea a, while grow- 
ing anger over the “left-wing 
bias" of the media attracted 1 1 
motions. 

. One of those, sumbitted by 
south east Cambridgeshire 
constituency deplores. . the 
anti-Gpvemment bias of BBC 
radio and television. 


Russia offers to take British pilot on space trip 


By Keith Hindley 

A British military pilot may 
well, after all orbit the earth 
by 1990 but he will Im off from 
the Soviet Union, not the 
United Stales. 

An invitation to launch a 
Briton as a “guest cosmonaut 
is likely to emerge nom an 
official visit to Moscow next 
week by Mr Roy Gibson, the 
head of Britain s fledSjgB 
space agency. The initial offer 
is most likely, to involve a 
week-long visit to the Mir 
orbiting space .station 

Mr Gibson is visiting Mo^ 
cow at the invitation of the 

I 


Soviet Institute of Space Sci- 
ence to discuss possible areas 
of scientific collaboration. 
“While we are there we would 
certainly welcome an offer to 
orbit a Briton but we do not 
simply want a ride round the 
block," he said. 

Most of the “guest 
cosmonaut" flights in the past 
have simply been propaganda 
excercises with the foreign 
national going along for the 
ride and performing nine 
useful scientific work- 

“If the Russians offer a 
flight of several weeks with a 
serious scientific programme 


for our man to carry out, that 
would be a different kettle of 
fish," he said. 

Britain's group of four as- 
tronauts, Nigel Wood .(RAF), 
Peter Longhurst (Royal, 
Navy), Richard Farrimdnd’ 
(Army) and Christopher 
Holmes (Ministry of Defence) 
were grounded and disbanded 
in June when the possibility of 
launching British Skynet sat- 
ellites with the US space 
shuttle vanished in the wake 
of the Challenger disaster. 

The group had already be- 
gun training as Nasa payload 
specialists. •• • 


The Russians will not object 
to pilots originally selected for 
a US shuttle flight and so three 
of Britain's original. four win 
be first in line for the British 
eight-Mr Holmes will not 
qualify because he is a 
civilian. 

France is the only country 
to have its citizens launched 
into orbit by both the Soviet 
Union and the United States. 

Britain would almost cer- 
tainly accept a Soviet invita- 
tion for the experience it 
would give to one of its space 
hopefuls- The Russians will 


expect the British National 
Space Centre to provide about 
eight candidates for initial 
training and will accept only 
military pilots. 

All will have to rope with a 
crash Russian language course 
and training for up to two 
years with Soviet cosmonauts.- 

The workload in Star City is 
far more vigorous than Nasa 
training for mission special- 
ists. The successful candidate 
would be chosen for fluency in 
Russian, fitness and 
comparability with the two- 
man Russian crew.

start of service will 
worsen court delays 


By Frances Gibb 
Legal Affairs Correspondent 

The new crown prosecution 
service may lead to yet more 
delays in the heavily over- 
burdened criminal justice sys- 
tem when it takes over in 
every court in England and 
Wales next week, the Director 
of Public Prosecutions said 
yesterday. 

The new service inherits a 
criminal justice system al- 
ready struggling to cope with a 
crisis of congestion and de- 
lays, Sir Thomas 
Hetherington said 

With only 10 days before 


Prosecutors 
‘press-ganged’ 
into service 


the new service is fully opera- 
«r 1 he admit- 


lional on October 
ted it was still critically short 
of lawyers in some areas and 
that there would need to be 
heavy use of freelance lawyers, 
mostly newly qualified bar- 
risters who are keen to do* the 
work. 

In London, where only half 
the number of the lawyers 
needed to take over the job of 
prosecuting from the police 
have been recruited, crown 
prosecutors will have to be 
drafted in from the “better 
off" parts of the service in the 
provinces, he said. 

But the main problem was 
that the service comes “into a 
system where there are already 
too many delays; where papers 
do go astray and witnesses fail 
to turn up and police papers 
are not always sent to the the 
right place at the right rime to 
the right people." 

Sir Thomas also answered 
critics of the new service, 
certain magistrates and 
justices' clerks who have at- 
tacked it for muddles and 
delays- - - 

Most of those problems 
existed under the old system, 
he said. “All was not lovely in 
the garden before the crown 
prosecution service came 
along. 

“We will not have the de- 
luxe service we are aiming for 
on October 1. But when the 
wrinkles are ironed out, the 


A crown prosecutor working 
for the new service has criti- 
cized the decision to draft in 
prosecutors “against : their 
will" from the provinces to' 
help to make np die shortfall 
of lawyers in London courts 
and -prop up a “creaking" 
system. 

The result mil be d am a ge 
caused to the quality of the 
prosecution service hi the shire 
counties, tiie lawyer says in an 
anonymous letter to The Times 
signed “ritsilteioned public 
prosecutor”. 

“By plugging one leak, or 
trying to, another is created," 
the prosecutor says. ^Lawyers 
are being drafted into London 
against their wQl and many of 
the younger ones are seeking 
alternative employment." 

With the approach of Octo- 
ber 1, when the new service 
starts in London, requests for 
help have turned into an order. 
“In order to prevent toe boat 
from sinking, management are 
press-ganging lawyers- from 
the shire counties." - 

The prosecutor admits that 
toe new- service faces ah 
impossible task in finding 
some 300 lawyers id the right 
calibre to man toe London 
courts but to dose “on current 
salaries is to expect a 
miracle". 


service will be efficient, effec- 
tive and economical" 

Another problem is that the 
£150 million service coincides 
with other developments in 
toe criminal' justice .'system, 
such as the 24-hour duty 
solicitor scheme for suspects 
in police stations, which could 
mean delays. 

“Solicitors might advise a 
client to plead not guilty, 
which will lead to delay, 
although a perfectly justifiable 
one.” 


There was also the new rule 
obliging the prosecution to 
disclose its case to the defence 
in advance of trial in crown 
court cases, he added. Another 
change was toe tape-recording 
of police interviews. They 
could also cause delays. 

The criminal justice system 
faced other problems: outside 
London where there were also 
“old prejudices" and “in- 
grained traditions" he said 
that if there was to be a 
dramatic improvement . in 
coping with the court back- 
logs,- there would have to be 
more sittings by magistrates. 

There was also toe rise in 
crime; that meanta rise in toe 
workload which in turn meant 
“a greater workload" for those 
who bad to appear in court. 

All this meant a need for 
more court buddings . and 
more judges. Sir Thomas said.* 

On top of that, toe new staff 
had to be trained. Burin sphe 
of difficulties. Sir Thomas 
robustly defended the new 
service as a “most important 
development in our criminal 
justice system". 

“Despite staffing shortages. 
every court would be up and 
running the new service on 
October 1, and be staffed with 
at least 60 per cent of in-house 
lawyers from the service." ~ 

The shortfall ofiawyers is 
worst in London, where: there 
are so fir 147 of its target 318, 
or 46 per cent. Throughout toe 
whole country there are 75 per 
cent of the 1,500 lawyers 
needed; and 80 per cent of all 
staff needed to run the service. 

The service was determined 
to recruit only , those of qual- 
ity. Sir Thomas sauL'Tdanot 
want to leave a legacy of -the 
service staffed for toqjiext 40 
years by people not right for 
toejob.” 

The budget for the service 
this year, which started in the 
metropolitan areas outside 
London on April 1. will be 
£100 million, and £150 mil- 
lion when running in every 
court over the whole 



year. 


Labour rejects 
Tory tax sums 


By Nicholas Wood, Political Reporter 
Mr Michael Meacher, (solely for the sake of aign- 


Labonr's chief spokesman on 
soda! security, yesterday dis- 
missed the charge that his 
party's tax and benefits pbui 
would boost the marginal rate 
to 70 per cent for more than 
one million people earning 
more than £500 a week. 


The allegation was made 
last week by Mr Nigel 
Lawson, Chancellor of the

fleshed out its scheme to

payments through higher 
taxes on people earning 
£27,000 a year or more. 

Mr Meacher said iu alerter 
to Mr Lawson that raising the 
mar g inal rate for the richest 5 
per cent was not the only way 
to find the extra cash. Alter- 
natives included changing tax 
thresholds or allowances, or 
reintroducing investment in-

Conservation threat 


Experts detect ‘backlash’ 


By Hugh Clayton, Environment Correspondent 


A backlash against 
conservation is under way, a 
commission of experts said 
yesterday after a three-year 
investigation of toe planning 
system. 

Mr James Comfortl, direc- 
tor of toe Nuffield Founda- 
tion, said that signs of a 
backlash bad appeared in . 
evidence to toe 13 experts 
whom -the foundation had 
commissioned to investigate. 

There were dear signs of 
suspidon that pressure for 
preservation rather than bal- 
anced conservation was 
“threatening. sensible 
development". 

The point was underlined 
by Sir Ralph Verney, former 
chairman of the Nature 
Conservancy Council and a 
member of toe foundation’s 
inquiry team. 

“The bad memories of the 
redevelopment programmes 
of toe 60s and early 70s are 
fading, and some people are 


beginning to promote toe. 
cause of redevelopment 
again." he said. 

The team included some 
eminent pfenning academics 
and lawyers, including Sir 
Frank Layfieid QC, who was 
inspector at toe Sizewel) *B’ 
power station planning in- 
„ qufey. . It complained of too 
'-modi government interven- 
tion in. toe pl anning decisions 
of local co uncils. 

It was chaired by Lord 
' Flowers, vice-chancellor of toe 
London University and also 
included Professor Sir Hass 
Kornberg. master of Christ's 
Collie, Cambridge, and for- 
mer chairman of the Royal 
Commission on: 

Enmvironmental Pollution. 

They rejected pressure for 
farmland to be brought within* 
the planning system, and said 
that hedges would not nec- 
essarily be protected by mak- 
ing farmers ask for planning 
permission before cutting 
them down. 


'They made several com- 
plaints about wildlife protec- 
tion law, and called the 
Wildlife and Countryside Act 
1981 “woefully deficient". 
THe Act allows formers to be 
compensated for abandoning 
agricultural operations, that 

■ would* threaten wildlife. 

. -They .heard -evidence that 
some" -formers "had.^blackr 
mailed the Government" , by 
threatening todo things which 
they would never have done 
without toe stimulus of being 
compensated. 

The technique was ex- 
plained by Sir Ralph, who 
said; ..“There were several

Male officers 
ease Holloway 
staff shortage 

By Angella Johnson 


Male prison officers are to 
be introduced at Holloway 
women's prison in London for 
the first time in November as 
part ofa Home Office move to 
ease staff shortages. 

Ten senior male officers will 
initially be drafted into the 
once all-women domain on 
November 1 and the number 
will later rise to 16. Although 
Holloway has a mate gov- 
ernor, Mr Colin Allen, this is 
toe first time since the prison 
was built in 1849 that male 
staff will have daily contact 
with women prisoners. 

The Prison Officers Associ- 
ation has not yet agreed to the 
experiment Instead, it has put 
forward its own proposals. A 
spokesman said there was also 
a danger that men could face 
allegations of improprieties 
from the female inmates. 

Women officers will also have 
a chance to work in male 
establishments once the need 
has been established.

Rover reviews future 
of its Cowley works 


By Edward Townsend, Industrial Correspondent 


The future of a number of 
Rover Group factories, includ- 
ing part of the big Cowley 
works near Oxford, is being 
studied under a wide-ranging 
review. 

The review of toe company, . 
formerly BL, was ordered by 
Mr Graham Day, the new 
chairman. 

The review, described as an 
operational audit was begun 
in May shortly after Mr Day's 
arrival and win form the bans 
of the group's next five-year 
corporate plan which the 
win present to the 
Government at toe end of the; 
year. 

: Although options aimed at 
returning the company tit 
profitability as quickly as 
possible are included in the 
study, the co mpany yesterday 
declined to disclose details. 

But a spokesman described 
as “totally speculative" a re- 
port that the South Works at 
Cowley, which assembles the 


Maestro and Montego models, 
coaid be made available to 
Rover’s Japanese' associate, 
Honda. 

Since the joint venture be- 
tween BL and Honda began in 
1979, there have been'persis- 
tent reports that toe collabora- 
tion • might eventually -' -be 
extended to iudude a Japa-

World Chess Championship 

Kasparov rests 
after battering 


From Raymond Keene, 


Chess Correspond* 0 ** 


After his severe battering in 
same 17 and 18 of toe World 
Chess Championship Gary 
Kasparov has wisely opted to 
use up toe last of his remain- 
ing time-outs for game 19 
originally scheduled for 
yesterday. 

From being three games 
ahead with a virtually un- 
assailable lead, Kasparov has 
now plummeted to a me re one 
point in hand ova- -his great 
rival. 

The view here is that after 
Kasparov's brilliant display of 
mental pyrotechnics in game 
16, that toe young champion 
had fallen prey to a twin evil: 
overconfidence plus an 
erroneus belief that the match 
was effectively over. 

This may have turned out to 
be a costly mistake and one 
that underestimates toe iron 
will and -fighting spirit of toe 
former champion, Anatoly 
Karpov. ' Nevertheless, 
Kasparov still remains- the 
theoretical favourite to win. 
He can afford to score 2Vz 
points from the remaining six 
games and still remain 
champion. 

Game IS was a tragedy for 
Kasparov in every respect. His 
opening and early 'middle 
game play was d a zriin gly 
original. 


Nimrod is 
looked at 
by French 


- ByRodneyCowton - 

.Defence Correspondent 

French' defence officials Iasi 
week visited Britain to exam- 
ine toe Nimrod aircraft, which 
is trying to'fight off American 
challenges to displace it as the 
airborne early warning system 
for toe Royal Air Force.. 

The French have for several 
years been considering buying 
the Boeing Awacs, which is in 
service with Nato and the 
United Slates Air Force, but at 
a recent, meeting: between 
ministers fit London' they 
decided, that , they: would also 
look at the other main systems 
which Britain is considering. 

Apart from Nimrod and 
Awacs, these are a bid by 
Grumman to install alter- 
native radar and electronic 
systems in the Nimrod air- 
frame, and an offer by Locfc- 
heed-to supply- a system using 
its P-3C Orton aircraft. 

. However, it is expected that 
m-toe nett, day .OT;twQ- toe 
Ministry, of Defence will ain 
nounce that it is inviting the 
leading contenders for the 
British, contract, ^probably 
Boring and GEC, to submit 
“best and final" bids. 

This would be Intended to 
pave toe way. for a choice 
between Nimrod and Awacs 
bring made . in . December. 
■ Yesterday British - Aero- 
space, which is the major sub- 
contractor to GEC on the 
Nimrod programme , came 
out with its most robust 
statement in support of Nim- 
rod for many months. 

Mr Sydney Gillibrand, 
managing director of the civil 
aircraft division of British 
'Aerospace, said, his company 
now ;has. more confidence in 
toe .Programme than it had 
ever had. before.. 

He said British Aerospace 
had more technical informa- 
tion about toe project, and 
what it had learnt gave it 
confidence that if GECs 
progress in improving the 
performance of Nimrod could 
be maintained it would be able 
to achieve the necessary 
standards.- •• 

Until now . British Aero- 
space . has maintained a low 
profile, because although it 
has for yearn been working on 
toe airframes for toe Nimrod 
project, if toe Gnunman bid 
had displaced Nimrod, toe 
British firm Aerospace would 
have become heavily involved 
in that project. •

A change in the existing law “scheme of work” indicating 

i nprmil mnn> :u;i ■ — • - * — . — — - — -:i -~ 


to permit more flexibility in 
the provisions for religious 
worship in primary- schools 
was called for yesterday by a 
Commons select committee. 

The current statutory 
requirement, embodied in the 
1944 Education Act, demands 
that each school conducts an 
act of worship at the beginning 
of each day for all its pupils. 

However, a 297-page report 
by the select committee on 
education and science. 
Achievement in Primary 
Schools, states that the present 
situation is too rigid, with 
many schools being forced to 
disregard the letter of the law. 

“Assemblies are often held 
at some time other than the 
start of the day and schools 
frequently gather in sections 
and not as a whole. We take 
the view that the schools are 
sensible and the law is not,” it 
says. 

“ It can be better to hold an 
act of worship mid-morning 
when the pupils are more 
settled, or at the end rather 
than the beginning of some 
days.” 

Actual religious instruction 
in the classroom should reflect 
the predominance of the 
Christian faith. As with other 
aspects of the curriculum, the 
committee recommends that 
each school .draw up a 


precisely what each pupil is 
expected to learn. 

The committee chairman. 
Sir William van Straubenzee, 
Conservative MP for 
Wokingham, said that the 
educational searchlight of re- 
cent years had focused prin- 
cipally on the secondary and 
further sectors, with the im- 
plication that the primary 
level had suffered owing to 
less critical examination and 
coverage. 

A further plank in the report 
calls for each school, in co- 
operation with the local 
education authority and its 
governing body to draw up a 
special development plan each 
year to say exactly how the 
school can best allocate its 
resources. _ 

After the publication of the 
schools inspectors'’ report ear- 
lier in the year on the poor 
conditions of some school 
buildings, the committee re- 
port also recommends “as a 
matter of urgency” that a 
^national. assessment of 
maintenance requirements 
should be conducted under 
the general supervision of the 
Department of Education and 
Science “so that the size of the 
problem can be fairly judged, 
the cost estimated.

‘Help’ calls reach 
record six million 


By David Sapsted 

. A record total of more than 
six million calls has been 
received by Citizen Advice 
Bureaux in the past 12 
months -a 17 per cent in- 
crease on the previous year. 

The increase has prompted 
Miss Elizabeth fiUdn. director 
of the National Association of 
Citizen Advice Bureaux, 
(Nacab) to demand more gov- 
ernment funding for the “des- 
perately stretched” service. 

Introducing Nacab’s'annual 
report. Miss Rlkin • said: 
“Over five years, a 39 per cent 
increase in inquiries 4 o -CAB _ 
has been matched by a mere 
eight per cent increase In the . 
number of bureaux. Recent 
cutbacks in local authority 
funding and abolition of the 
metropolitan counties have 
pm the CAB under still further 
strain. 

“With inquiries passing the 
six million mark, surely this is 
proof enough that more and 
better equipped bureaux are 
needed in Britain.” _ 

The rate of inquiries works 
out nationally at one call every 
second, Nacab estimates. 


After the character, Angie, 
in the BBC’s EastEnders. tried 
to f her life with a cocktail 

of alcohol and drugs during an 

episode, hospitals reported 
that overdose attempts tripled 
during the following week, a 
World Health Organization 
conference in York was told 
yesterday. 

A string of copycat suicides 
follows any simulated attempt 
by an actor in a popular 
television series to kill Mbs- 
self, according to Dr Annin 
Sdunidtke, a delegate from 
West Germany. “Broad; 
casters have to bemore careful 
in showing suicide' attempts 
and how people deal with 
problems -that might prompt 
them' to take their own lives , 
be said. , . 

The BBC has denied any 
fink between the attempted 
television suicide _ and the 
ensuing s uicide statistics. 

One-fifth of questions relate 
to social security entitlement, 
while figures also - reveal a 
marked increase in the num- 
ber regarding personal debt 
including mortgage arrears.

hats for 
TSB day 

By Robin Young 

For a bank that is, by all 
public reports, giving away 
money with both hands, the 
Trustee Savings. Bank was 
yesterday maintaining an air 
of discreet caution. 

True, the manager of the 
High Holbom branch in cen- 
tral London had hired bowler 
hats for all his staff to wear, 
and, in common with many of 
his colleagues in London had 
queues hanging out of the 
doors waiting to hand in 
application forms, for the 
bank’s flotation share issue. 

But inside the bank’s head 
office collection centre, in 
Lombard Street, the scru- 
tineers were already at work, 
and a “black list” prominently 
displayed in their office al- 
ready contained more than 30 
names of companies and in- 
dividuals whose multiple 
applications will be rooted

In spite of the publicity 
always given to cheats who 
attempt to “stagT the market 
in new issues, most of the 
applications being sorted into 
the “query” box were not 
suspected of dishonesty at alL 
They had simply been wrongly 
completed. 

“In general applicants* stan- 
I dard of form .filling has been 
very good,” Mr Joe Bildough, 
the collecting centre manager, 
said. Sell early, page 17 

dare Francis 
wins damages 
for drug claim 

Clare Francis, the round- 
the-world 'yachtswoman and 
novelist, yesterday won libel 
damages in the High Court 
over an allegation that she 
confessed to once being a drug 
addict • 

Mr Alan Newman, her 
counsel, told Mr Justice Stu- 
art-Smith there was no truth 
in the allegation which had 
caused Miss Francis, aged 40, 
“great distress”. It appeared in 
the Dailv Express and Daily 
Star in January last year and 
said her confession came on a 
Television South programme. 

Mr Newman said that the 
two newspapers, which agreed 
lo pay undisclosed damages 
and costs, had relied on a press 
release from TVS which mis- 
quoted Miss Francis. The 
producers of the programme 
have apologized and paid 
damages to Miss Francis. 


V & A entry fees 
eaten up by costs 


Trustees of the Victoria A 
Albert Museum will be told 
this week that the cost of 
collecting voluntary admission 
fees has eaten up some two 
thirds of the money contrib- 
uted and that the museum has 
not met its new income target. 

But the trustees are likely 
on Thursday to continue the 
voluntary fee-collection 
scheme and believe the scheme 
will be more than twice as 
profitable next year. 

The museum also hopes that 
toe opening of several new 
gall eries wSl bring tack tile 
crowds to South Kensington. 

Negative publicity about the 
admission fees, and a drop in. 
tourism generally, are among 
the factors Mamed for a fall to 


the number of visitors this 
year. 

Figures for the 12-month 
period ending on October 31 
are expected to show about one 
million admissions, compared 
with 1.7 million in 1984, the 
last full year in which entry 
was free. 

About 1.6 million people 
visited the museum in 1985, 
when the fees were introduced 
two months before the end of 
the year. 

Sir Boy Strong, toe director 
said: “We've recouped our 
expenses and learnt a lot.” 

When the voluntary fees 
were introduced last Novem- 
ber, museum officials forecast 
that they wonld bring in 
£500,000 by October 31, 1986. 


Watchdog

Arab says 
he knew 
nothing of 
grenades 

An Arab student was used 
as an innocent pawn in an 
alleged Libyan-backed terror- 
ist plot inside the United 
Kingdom, it was suggested at 
the Central Criminal Court 
yesterday. 

Mr Brian Hisgs, QC. coun- 
sel for Nassar Muhammad, 
aged 28 , a student, said there 
was no doubt fanatical terror- 
ists would "stoop to involve 
the innocent agent in their 
terrorist activities”. 

Mr Muhammad and Dr 
Rasmi Awad. a Jordanian, 
have both denied conspiring 
to cause explosions in the 
United Kingdom last year. 

The prosecution has alleged 
both men were arrested by 
anti-terrorist squad officers 
after they were seen to collect 
four grenades from a Libyan 

student contact at Warren 
Sircci Underground station in 
central London. The grenades 
were alleged to be for later use 
against UK targets. 

But unknown to them, the 
Libvan student was opposed 
io Colonel Gadaffi’s regime 
and had tipped off British 
police who foiled the plot, the 
Jury has been told. 

Mr Higgs said that Mr 
Muhammad would tell the 
court that, through his rel- 
atives in the Middle East, he 
was asked to meet Dr Awad — 
known onlv to him as Ibra- 
him - and took him sight- 
seeing and eventually to 
Warren Street, "not having 
the faintest notion that it was 
to be connected with 
grenades”. 

Cross-examined by Mr Gra- 
ham Boat, for the prosecution. 
Mr Muhammad agreed that 
the Middle Eastern relatives 
who arranged for him to show 
Mr Awad around London 
were supporters of Abu Nidal. 
the terrorist leader. 

The hearing continues 
today.

LIBERAL ASSEMBLY 


Arms control 



Third World aid • Unity plea ■: 


Owen call for 


stress on 
disarmament 


and defence 


What had been missing in 
Britain for some years was a 
governemnt with a dedication 
to arms control and disarma- 
ment as strong as its commit- 
ment 10. a sound defence. Dr 
David Owen, Leader of the 
SDP, told the opening session 
of the Liberal Assembly in 
Eastbourne in a speech that 
was loudly applauded. 

“It is the balance between 
the two that is fundamental", 
be said. 

“If our European partners 
see us firm and dear and 
committed to our defence 
posture, then they will listen 
to us on our disarmament 
posture. 

“Then the British 
Government's position within 
Naro will have weight and 
dout and on many occasions 
carry the day. 

“But if they see our arms 
control and disarmament is 
just put up front to cover a 
lack of determination and lack 
of resolve on conventional 
arms, or our nuclear deterrent, 
or our commitment to Nato, 
we will not count for much 
and our voice will not cany 
weight", he said. 

ft was therefore fun- 
damental that the country 
should sense that, just as the 
Alliance was committed to 
alleviating poverty and 
enhancing prosperity, so the- 
two parties were determined 
to maintain peace. 

They had to seek agree- 
ments that would match the 
mood of the electorate and the 
needs of the country. 

The answer lay in a strong 
European security- identity; in 
building on the political cor- 
porate framework of the Euro- 
pean Community; in France 
and Britain recognizing more 
openly their responsibility in 
nuclear defence and disarma- 
ment policies; in their Euro- 
pean partners in Europe 
accepting political responsibil- 
ity of a clear partnership in 
Nato. 

“I believe all of it is now 
negotiable", he said. “That is 
one of the differences that has 
taken place over the last three 
years. 

“Who would have thought 


then that in 1986 Mrs 
Thatcher’s decision to pur- 
' chase Trident missiles' and a 
Trident submarine pro- 
gramme would cany, if the 
latest polls are to be believed, 
the support of only 13 percent 
of the people of this country? 

“There is a major gap in 
credibility and support fix' 
rational, realistic defence and 
disarmament policies and it is 
our task in the Alliance to fill 
it", he said. 

On disarmament, the Alli- 


ance had to win the con- 
fidence of the people that its 
policy was not just about 
sound defence, but was also 
seriously concerned and 
committed to sensible 
disarmament. 

The Alliance wanted to see 
the signing of a total nuclear 
test ban treaty. Nothing 
showed that either President 
Reagan or Mrs Thatcher was 
ready to sign such a treaty. 

There was now a possibility 
of a nuclear test in space as 
part of the SDI programme. 
The threshold test ban treaty 
had already been negotiated 

That should be signed now 
but not at the 150 kilotonne 
level as agreed, which would 
not have stopped most of the 
recent tests, but at a 20 or even 
10 kilotonne threshold. 

He suggested that battlefield 
nuclear weapons, which could 
be regarded as the most dan- 
gerous of all nudear weapons, 
should be replaced by a 
nuclear-free zone to alleviate 



EMPLOYMENT 


Tea for three at Eastbourne: Mr Steel, Mrs Debbie Owen, and Dr Owen relaxing yesterday (Photograph: Harry Kerr). 


Steel appeals for arms policy support 


the danger of military com- 
manders feeing the prospect of 
losing the weapons because 


they were being overran. 

That was the sort of 
demonstration by Nato, Dr 
Owen said, that would mark a 
shift away from a strategy of 
early use of nuclear weapons 
towards a strategy in which 
nuclear weapons were weap- 
ons of last resort. 

He concluded, to prolonged 
applause: “Let us go out and 
use the opportunities of com- 
ing together on defence and 
disarmament to convince the 
people of this country that the 
maintenance of peace is some- 
thing to which our Alliance is 
totally dedicated". 


Mr David Steel, the liberal 
leader, appealed last night to 
his Liberal general election 
candidates for support in die 
crucial conference debate this 
afternoon on defence. 

He said: “Ours could be the 
most effective, valne-for- 
money defence policy on offer 
to the electorate. It b secure 
and forward-looking and 
geared to progress in detente 
and disarmament" 

He called on Liberal par- 
fiamentary candidates to back 
the recommendations of the 
Alliance defence commission 
and thns allow Liberal spokes- 
men and policy fwiatux to 
condone discussions on. those 
lines pending the outcome of 
the Geneva arms control talks 
tins whiter. 

Defending the plan to 


strengthen the European pillar 

of Nato, Mr Steel said it was 
politically unlikely that future 
American administrations 
would commit permanently 
and indefinitely more than 
300,000 troops to the defence 
of Western Europe. 

“That means we European 
powers mast oeraetres shoul- 
der more of the burden", he 
said. 

“We coaid provide much 
more capable defence systems 
at tower cost to oar taxpayers 
if we pooled our resources in a 
proper European defence 
community. “Far from un- 
hooking ns from our major 
Nato partner, die signs of 
greater European setf-celhuice 
would be welcome in the 
United States.” 

But if they were to develop 


such European co-operation 
“we should not stop at the 
conventional defence barrier 
and continue to pursue purely 
national nudear deterrent 
policies or become wholly 
dependent on die American 
nudear guarantee for Europe. 

“Much as we would wish to 
see that guarantee remain 
hence our consistent support 
for Nato — we cannot judge 
♦hat under all presidents in the 
unforeseeable future it will 
always be there.” 

He said that if liberals 
chose to abandon the British 
deterrent, they would not 
achieve a aon-nudesr Europe. 
France would still have a 
nuclear force over whose fu- 
ture scale, deployment or 
negotiated abandonment Brit- 
ain would have no say. . 


PROFIT-SHARING 


Chancellor ‘took 
Liberal slogan 9 


The Chancellor of the Ex- 
chequer, Mr Nigel Lawson, 
was strongly criticized for 
paying only lip service to the 
idea of profit-related pay in 
the proposals he announced 
Mr Chris Graham, par- 
liamentary candidate for 
North Wiltshire, told the con- 
ference that the Chancellor 
had merely pinched the Lib- 
eral profit-sharing slogan but 
not the policy. 


Way clear 
for Steel 


on defence 


Continued from page l 


being cleared for an expected 
tactical victory for Mr Steel 
today, which could both iso- 
late the unilateralist wing and 
strengthen his own band in the 
negotiations with the SDP to 
reach a unified Alliance de- 
fence policy before the 
election. 

But he still faces tough 
opposition with at least two of 
his IS parliamentary col- 
leagues; Mr Michael 
Mcadowcroft and Mr Simon 
Hughes indicated last night 
that they would be in the 
opposing camp. 

Although Mr Steel appeared 
to bo on course for a win 
today, there is disquiet among 
Liberals about how far he 
seems to have moved towards 
Dr Owen. 

Party managers chose for 
debate two amendments to 
the leadership's motion 
welcoming the commission 
report. 

The first will involve Mr 
Steel in a direct dash with the 
party's unilateralists over the 
Alliance plan for a European 
pillar of nuclear defence, the 
means chosen by both leaders 
to patch over the differences 
left unresolved by the 
commission report. 

Mr Mcadowcroft. MP for 
Leeds. West, described the 
leadership's strategy as a 
"high-wire act." 

The second amendment, 
almost identical to one passed 
last week at the SOP'S Harro- 
gate conference, calls on the 
party today to endorse its 
controversial 19S4 policy, 
which has been seen as non- 
nuclear by some but not by Mr 
Steel, as a basis for negotiation 
with the SDP. 

The amendment represents 
a classic fudge. It will enable 
Mr Steel to claim full freedom 
of manoeuvre in stitching up 
the eventual deal while it will 
allow his opponents to claim 
that no ground has been given 
on past policies in relation to 
Polaris. 

Dr Owen pleased not only 
the Liberals but his party 
president. Mrs Shirley Wil- 
liams. by the emphasis he gave 
to disarmament. That was 
what she had urged him to do 
last week and it was the 
intervention for which the 
Liberal leadership had prayed. 

Dr Owen won applause 
when he declared: "Our policy 
is not just about sound de- 
fence. It is also seriously 
concerned with and commit- 
ted to sensible disarmament." 



He said that the 
Chancellor’s half-baked pro- 
posals for profit-related pay 
might seem like a giant leap to 
the Government, but for Lib- 
erals it was only a small step. 
The Chancellor bad no inten- 
tion of going down the Liberal 
road towards real partnership. 

The assembly -carried a 
motion, moved by Mr Gra- 
ham. which made clear that 
profit-sharing' would nor be 
used as a - mechanism for 
reducing wages.

affirmed included comxnit-

dustry, and to the need to 
stimulate the . growth of 
worker co-operatives. 

_ AjLanjeadmenL moyedbyL 
Mr Gordon lishnuuy par- 
liamentary candidate 4or 
Pen die, and accepted by Mr 
Graham, reworded part of the 
resolution to make dear that 
the principle that the right to 
participate in the control of an 
enterprise arose from the feet 
of working in that enterprise. 

Mr Richard Wain wright 
MP for Colne . Valley, and 
Liberal spokesman . on. eco- 
nomic affairs.' said that when 
talking about . profit-sharing 
they were not.talking about a 
substitute tor the rate for the 
job but a proper addition to it 
when profits were made. 

Lord Ezra, former chairman 
of the National Coal Board, 
said long-term success in in- 
dustry could be achieved only 
by effective participation and 
involvement of all employed J_ 
in the enterprise. 


The assembly carried a 
resolution urging that over a 
five-year period the British 
overseas aid budget should 
reach the United Nations 
target of 0.7 per cent of gross 
national product rather than 
the 033 per cent it is at 
present. 

The resolution suggested 
- that all responsibility for the 
promotion of British exports^ 
to developing countries 
should be transferred from the 
aid budget to the trade budget, 
and that aid in time of 
catastrophe, such as famine in 
Africa, should be drawn from 
the Government’s contin- 
gency reserve rather than from 
the aid budget 

There should also be an 
important initiative to reduce 
interest rates and extend debt 
repayment periods, especially 
for the poorest countries. A 
move to delete the reference to 
debt from the resolution nar- 
rowly failed on a show of 
hands. 

Miss Sarah Mitchell, par- 
liamentary candidate for 
Wansbeck in Northumber- 
land, moving the resolution, 
said the amount of aid Britain 
gave to the Third World was 
totally inadequate. 

Crisis aid such as that for 
fern ine should be additional to 
the aid programme, not part of 
it; that deprived other essen- 
tial projects of money. 

Aid was not reaching the 
people who needed it most. 
The most essential type of aid . 
was that which supported - 
agriculture for food rather 
than for ca sh. 

Miss Lesley Abdela. oho 
indicated she . had recently 


returned from Africa, ad- 
vocated. the phasing out of 
direct aid. 

It had, she said, created a 
new class of people: 
“Benzies", who ran about in 
expensive Mercedes Benz can 
provided by aid money. 
Money was being handed out 
to presidents who lived in 
.cultures where the first thing 
anyone (fid if they had money 
was td give it to family or 
friends. ‘ . 

The only system which 
ensured that money was prop- 
erly used was that of using 
reputable aid agencies. 

Dr Peter Gold, par- 
liamentary candidate for Shef- 
field Hallam, said they could 
do better than aim to reach a 
target in 1993 that was set 24 
years ago. 

. An Alliance * government 
should make a commitment 
to match pound for pound the 
funds raised by voluntary 
agencies. 

Mr Alan Befth, MP for 
Berwick-upon-Tweed, the 
Liberal spokesman on over- 
seas development, said the 
present Government had a 
shameful record and be chal- 
lenged the new Minister for 
Overseas Development, Mr 
Christopher Patten, to in- 
dicate what be proposed to do 
about the UN target and 
whether he would seek to get 
Britain’s aid programme back 
to the level at which it was 
when the Tories came to 
office. 

Aid should be shifted from 
prestige projects to the most 
important task of helping 
peasant farmers to grow food. 


PRESIDENT -ELECTS ADDRESS 


Ability to resolve differences is test of Alliance 


There were policy differences be- 
tween the Liberals and the SDP, bat 
the test of the Affiance was not the 
ability to avoid differences, it was the 
ability to resolve them, Mr Des 
Wilson, president-elect of the Lib- 
erals, said in his address to the 
assembly, which won a standing 
oration. 

In an appeal for Alliance unity and 
for the two parties to listen to each 
other, he said: “I do not belittle the 
policy problems. We wfll debate some 
of them this week. 

“1 ask no one of either party to 
betray any principles, only to remem- 
ber that to reflect onr words about co- 
operation and partnership and 
tolerance in the way the Alliance 
works is the responsibility of afi of ns 
in both parties at every lever. 

In a bitter attack on the two main 
parties and their “doable standards 
and self-indulgence", be questioned 
why the Alliance should be asked 
what compromises it would make for 
the chance to share power with other 
Conservative or Labour. 

The real question was on what 
conceivable grounds did either La- 
bour or Conservatives deserve any 
more power at alL 

He accused the Government of 
“more than a hint of corruption" and 
Labour, for all its moralistic bluster- 
ing, of helping to prop ap apartheid, 
sharing complicity In die creation of 
the nudear stockpile and haring a 
record on the Third World as 
miserable as that of the Conser- 
vatives. 


There was debate over whether the 


target of the Alliance campaign 


should be Labour or the Tories, 
should be both, and the self-serving 
system they tod both sustained. 

They were the unholy alliance of 
the past. The new Alliance had to 
change the machinery of power itself. 

“They want power for themselves, 
for the benefit of their dominant 
vested interests. We want power to 
redistribute and store with the 
people," he said. “Britain today is 
their joint creation, their combined 
legacy." 

They had had 40 years to build a 
sound and sustainable economy. To- 
day there was unremitting decline, ■ 
more than three; miUmii unemployed, 
hundreds of th o usands of you 
without hope, dereliction and 
and division between mam 
and labour, between North and South 
and between majority and minorities. 

“Those two parties share complic- 
ity in ail of the dangers and inequities 
that we face on our planet today", be 
said. 

“Their failure has not just been one 
of competence, it has been one of 
integrity. We see in than all the 
corrupting influence of unfettered 
power. They lave created a new issue 
in British politks-the probity of 
politics." 

That extended from the virtual 
selling off of Britain to their friends to 
the way those at the top never seemed 
to suffer when the country suffered. 

How could politicians call on 
people to respond to tough challenges 


if they themselves contemptuously 
double-crossed and “bad-mouthed” 
their own colleagues as ministers tod 
over Westland? 

“There is a frivolity about their 
attitude to public service”, he said. “It 
is an outrage that, while hundreds of 
outstanding Alliance candidates are 
denied the opportunity to serve, then- 
opportunists like Pams, Golding and 
Kflroy-SOk can con the voters with 
the promise of public service and in 
less than three years chock it in for a 
bit more money or television fame. 

“It Is sordid, the spectacle of former 
ministers, and even sailor aril ser- 
vants with their inflation-linked pen- 
sions, slipping away from public tife 
for - lucrative directorships; often 
linked to their past public work. 

“There is more than a hint of 
corruption about this Conservative 
regime. They may not have their 
fingers in the till, tot, boy, they know 
a quick buck when they see one.” 

He suggested a few words for Mr 
David Steel to say to Mrs Margaret 
Thatcher when he arrived At 
Downing Street as Prime Minister 
•“Where she brought discord, may we 
bring harmony; where she brought 
despair, may we bring hope; where 
she brought Bernard Ingham, may we 
bring truth 1 . . - - 

“We have to tell our fellow citizens: 
it is time to throw them all out, time to 
take your fate back into your own 
hands." 

A whole alternative culture of 
charities, pressure groups and 
community organizations, involving 


many hundreds of thousands of 

people, had emerged in de fianc e of the 

political malaise to explore 
alternatives. 

Last Friday the Home Secretary 
tod complained about the growth of 
such groups, but the fact was that 
their numbers were a crashing con- 
demnation of the performance of the 
two old parties. They were also 
practical experience of the com- 
passion and sense of justice that was 
there . 

The Liberals would: replace the 
unjust electoral system with propor- 
tional representation; end suffocating 
secrecy by repealing all unnecessary 
controls on disclosure and replacing 
them with freedom of information; 
introduce s BiH of Rights; reduce the 
concentration of power in the centre; 
and dismantle many of the dictatorial 
Whitehall controls over local authori- 
ties and increase flipfr WwiM-fai au- 
tonomy. 

“We have to invest now to assure 
ourselves of work and homes and 
harmony in our communities beyond 
the turn of the centry.” 

The Liberals could offer the coun- 
try leadership now by addressing the 
one great neglected political issue of 
the time: the future; The world was 
moving on ami leaving the old parties 
far behind, stiD trying to relive past 
glories, both trying to postpone the 
future. 

“We have not waited all these years 
to promote superficial, .short-term 
solutions that would be paid for by the 
suffering of onr children tomorrow.” .

Williams 

attacks 




Much of youth unemploy- 
ment was caused by the 
insistence of unions on 
protecting members' jobs 
against newcomers, Mrs Shir- 
ley Williams, president of the 
Social- Democratic Party, said 
at a fringe meeting on the 
future of work, “Visions of the 
Future" 

“British trade unions, and I 
do not blame them for it, have 
tried to make a quasi-monop- 
oly out of work”, she said. “In 
other words, they defend full- 
tune work, and sometimes 
overtime, fin* their existing 
members against the people 
knocking at the door. 

“Young people who have 
not been reenuted have suf- 
fered because the efforts by the 
unions to retain the jobs of the 
middle aged and older people 
have essentially left them out 
in a society which is growing, 
in job terms, only slowly.” 

One of the resulting effects 
was something never seen 
before in this country, she 
said: 40 per cent of people 
under 25 years had been- 
unemployed for more than a 
year. 

A society that risks long- 
term unemployment is creat- 
ing an alienated under class 
which is not going to be left to 
rot for the next 60 years", she 
added. The approach to 
education was also to blame 
for high unemployment, she 
said. 

In America the number of 
professional, managerial and 
technical graduates this year 
had exceeded 30 million for 
the first time, that was 28 per 
cent of the workforce. 

“What is happening in Brit- 
ain? 

We are now educating ]4 
per cent of our 18-year-oids to 
degree level in an economy' 
which demands 28 per cent at 
degree level".

employment to two million in

Today’s agenda 

The assembly will debate 
defence this afternoon after 
discussing motions about 
what the Alliance should do in 
theeventofahung Parliament 
and oh the International Year 
of Shelter for the Homeless. 
This morning delegates wall 
consider party business issues

appealed to those earn- 
ing more than £17,000 a year 
to be prepared to saennee the 
cost of a packet of cigarettes 
to finance the cost or aboush- 


..je two greatest issues at 
the next general election were 
unemployment and the pov- 
erty increasingly flowing from 
it The battle to create new 
jobs went alongside the battle 
to abolish poverty. 

The assembly voted unani- 
mously to agree a motion that 


ment and the reversal of the 
decline of manufacturing in- 
dustry would be the main 
economic priorities of Lib- 
erals in government 

The motion also welcomed 
the publication this year of 
plans by the Alliance 
Worksearch group for the 
regeneration of the regions 
and nations of Britain and 
reaffirmed the Liberal 
commitment to develop local 
regional and national employ- 
ment strategies. 

Mrs Williams spoke as a 
member of Worksearch. 

Mr Vos, moving the mo- 
tion, said the Liberal pro- 
gramme would involve some 
expansion of national borrow- 
ing. 

It was a realistic, fully 
costed programme which 
would be backed up by an 
incomes policy and a coherent 
industrial strategy. If they 
were to do well at the next 
election they must convince 
the ..public k was worth 
supporting. 

Mr Paddy Ashdown, Lib- 
eral trade and industry 
spokesman and MP for 
Yeovil, said the City of Lon- 
don had followed the lead of 
the Government in “flogging 
off assets" for short-term 
gains. 

The slick operators of the 
City earning fabulous sums 
were chasing a fast buck rather 
than investing in prosperity in 
the long term. 


David Owen is a politician 
who arouses contradictory 
feelings among both his toes . 
juStfis friends. Tbehos^J. 1 . 
of his opponents is mixed with _ 
a considerable measure of 
admiration. The enthusiasm of ^ 
Ms allies is more than tinged 
with suspicion. In his speech. •; 
at Eastbourne yesterday to 
sought with characteristic 'r 
deliberation to set Liberal ^ 
suspicions at rest. 

There are two particular 
doubts that Liberals have ” 
about him. They' fear that he - 
may use the Affiance for bb - 
own purposes, using their ** 
greater numbers and superior - 
organization around the com- * 
try in the service of his policies v 

for just as long as it suits turn, 7 
while treating their ideas and 
their traditions with arrogant * 
contempt. They also suspect *» 
that he is drifting loo far to the i 
right, becoming too hardfaced -> 
and too close to the 
Conservatives. - '* 

He tried to disarm the— 
liberals on the first score 
yesterday by giving a careful, 
reasoned, low-key speech that 
was clearly designed to dem- ^ 
onstrate that he took their, 
misgivings seriously. For some 
delegates he succeeded so well - 
that be positively bored them. 


Force of Owen 
personality 


Dr Owen is not a sdntfllat- 
ing phrase-maker. His power — 
as an orator comes from the ^ 
force of his personality and the - 
sharpness of his mind, rather 
than his instinctive feel for 
words. But yesterday his per- .V 
sonal force was ranted for the / 
sake of his broader purpose. 

His principal task yes- . 
terday, though, speaking the „ 
day before the critical debate -- 
oa defence policy, was to ■ 
convince the Liberals that he . ; 
is not obsessed with the need 
for military strength. Only if 
they are persuaded that the 
Alliance is devoting sufficient 
attention _to the cause of- 
disarmament win they accept ~ 
his insisteiKe'iA the need for n 
continuing nudear deterrent. I L" 
am not suggesting that he was 
insincere w making disarma- 
ment the main theme of bis ~ 
remarks. He has a long his- 
tory, probably longer than ' / 
anyone else in either die SDP—- 
or die Liberals, of con- 
centrated work in that field; " 
He served tor some years on ** 
the . Palme Commission on >' 
international disarmament, 
and dime is no subject on/, 
which he speaks with greater 
knowledge and enthusiasm. ... 

Bat there was also an ob- 
vious element of political * 
calculation in his comments^ X 
He was at pains to emphasize " 
die link between sound de- 
fence, the policy which has “I 
threatened to divide the Alii- • 
ance, and disarmament, which * 
is the aspiration of all lib- 
erals. 

This reasoning is, I believe, 
correct in substance. Any men- : . 
sure of inter national disarms- 
ment that is worth having is __ 
the product of negotiation, and ; <- 
the best way for any country toll 
persuade an adversary to ~ 
negotiate seriously is to make'* 
it dear that it will reduce its 
arms only as part of an 
international deal.

David Penhaligon, MP for 
Truro. 


Assembly reports by Alan Wood, Anthony Hodges and Amanda Haigh 


To bear Dr Owen deploying 
this kind of argument was. 
hardly a surprise. But . the 
respect he displayed for Lib- 
eral sensitivities did represent 
a change in his tactics. This 
was not the David Owen who a 
few months ago was castigat- 
ing the mdemiveness of the - 
SDP-Liberal Joint Commit - ^ 
sion on defence. ' 

Has there, however^ been — 
more than a change in tactics? . *, 
Up to now there has been a...*

successor to Polaris. Had he ”

Some research centres are

The study showed a crisis in

Property 
boom 
‘nears end’ 

By Christopher Warman 

Property Correspondent 

Property in London and the 
South-east remains “buoyant” 
white in the rest of Britain the 
boom seems to be coming to an 
end, the Royal Institution of 
-Chartered Surveyors says in 
its latest survey of house 
prices, published yesterday. 

For the quarter ending Au- 
gust 31, more than one third of 
estate agents taking part in the 
survey reported no mcrease in 
prices, and there were indica- 
tions that the trend is likely to 
continue to the end of the year. 

Although the 196 
participating firms In En gland 
and Wales continued to sell a 
similar munber of homes, they 
reported a substantial increase 
in the offices showing -no price 
change. 

“The possibility of higher 
interest rates lnflied_ with a 
sustained level of low inflation 
are the most likely reasons for 
the levelling off,” Mr Peter 
Miller, the institute's housing 
market spokesman, said. 

The South-east, in contrast, 
is still doing well. More than 
half the 63 agents in a special 
survey reported increases dur- 
ing the past three months of 
more than 2 per cent, with a 
fifth of sates sfcowmg an 
increase of more than 5 per 
cent 

‘‘However, comments re- 
ceived indicate that these price 
rises will not continue at their 
present rate,” the institute 
says. 

• Nuffield Ledge in Regent's 
Park, London, one of the most 
expensive houses to come on to 
the property market, has been 
sold to an overseas buyer, the 
agents, Chestertons, an- 
nounced yesterday.

suitable applicants for the 
level of research involved. He 
was still looking for a scientist

Dr Archer said the lost 
talent had not all followed the 
“brain drain” to the United 
States or to industry. 

Three of the top' young 
scientists at a department in

Dr Archer believed the loss

inevitable after cuts in the

budget 

Awards of grants to research 
students, who should form the 
next generation of top medical 
scientists, were reduced by I 
half four years ago.

taken an increasing share of

programmes, half as many

Dr Deborah Greenspan (right), an Aids researcher; who received the Woman of Distinction 
award in London yesterday, talking to Zamira Rhodes, the fashion designer, who made the 
presentation (Photograph: Peter Trievnor). 


Britain attracts tourists 
from more widely diffused 
origins than any other Euro- 
pean country. It helps to make 
Heathrow Airport the busiest 
international airport in the 
world. 

But in other respects, 
according to the British Tour- 
ist Authority, our transport 
system militateS i against 
continuing success in attract- 
ing foreign visitors. 

The authority is concerned 
that access routes to and from 
airports and seaports are inad- 
equate for the traffic they; are 
expected to bear, and if British 
Rail does not provide better 
rolling stock it will drive away 
foreign customers- 

The tourist authority is also 
against the high air fares that 
prevail on certain domestic 
routes and on European 
routes in generaL 

The present pure stnicture 
suits the established airlines, 
and is largely accepted by 
business users, but discour- 
ages tourist traffic to a serious 
degree, the authority’s 
researchers believe. 

The authority would like to 
see back-to-back charters en- 
couraged. to facilitate more 
low-cosi flying holidays. 

.Another of the little over- 
sights that cost the country 
dear in international tourism 
last year was the failure to 
keep pace with the continental 
move to lead-free petrol. 

Large numbers of Germans 
and Scandinavians could not 


In the second of two 
an icies about the British 
Tourist Authority's view 
of tourism in Britain, 
Robin Young finds that 
the country cannot always 
offer foreign visitors trans- 
pons of delight. 

because among all the petrol 
service stations.- there was 
none to provide them with the 
lead-free petrol their engines 
require. 

Other suggestions that the 
authority makes might in- 
volve stricter policing tn tour- 
ist areas. The perception of 
Europe as a terrorist-ridden 
continent, unsafe to set foot 

in. patently a fleeted a lot of 

American holiday decisions 
this vear. 

The tourist authority put a 
big effort into attempting to 
counter the aftermath of Brit- 
ish support for the air raids on 
Libva. with some success. 

Simpler to counter would be 
the continuing complaints of 
tourists about dishonest street 
trading at main attractions, 
and dip-rate commissions, 
charged by some British bu- 
reaux de change, in defiance of 
the BTA code of conduct. 

Our booking services arc 
lamentably weak for attrac- 
tions that should be among 
Britain's strongest areas: selt- 
catcring and farmhouse holi- 
days. festival tickets and 
sporting events.

commission appointed to in-

“There are no dangerous

Mr Shimon Peres, foe 
Prime Minister of Israel, yes- 
terday held his first , substan- 
tial meeting with Mr Eduard 
Shevardnadze, foe Soviet For- 
eign Minister, to test the water 
for. a possible reconciliation 
between the two governments 

The meeting came in the 
wake of an inconclusive-round 
ofSoviet-Isradi talks held last 
month in Helsinki, which fail- 
ed 10 make headway oh the 
crucial issue of increased Jew- 
ish emigration. 

Although its is not unusual 
for Israel- and the Soviet 
Union to have high-level con- 
tacts. the timing of the meet- 
ing yesterday gave foe dis- 
-cussions a different dimen- 
sion. 

The Soviet Union is not 
believed to be ready to re-es- 
tablish foe relationship it sev- 
ered with Israel following foe 
Six-Day War in 1967 - and 
give away one of its most valu- 
able bargiining chips — until it 
is fairly certain that the idea of 
a conference-is a viable one. 


Israel Is dose to rt-estab- 
lishke low-level diplomatic 
ties with Poland after a break 
of almost 20 years, according 
to senior Western diplomats. 

The move is another sign of 
foe slow rapprochement be- 
tween Soviet bloc countries 
and foe Israeli Gov er n m ent, 
and has encouraged specula- 
tion that there may be renewed 
ties between Moscow and Je- 
rusalem. 

Poland and Israel agreed 
several months ago to open 
“interest offices" — the lowest 
form of diplomatic contact— to 
process visa applications and 


foster adtural links. Even 
before this ag ree me nt there 
was a flarry of contacts be- 
tween Poland and Israel, with 
the Warsaw leadership mak- 
ing a number of symbolic ges- 
tures toward* Jewish culture 
in Poland. 

In die first instance foe 
interest section wiD probably 
deal with Jewish groups who 
want to risk pay tnbote at foe

camps, inefodine Auschwitz,.

Defence chief 
urges election 
to end doubts 
over Aquino 

From Keith Dalton, Manila 

__ Mr Juan Ponce Emile. Phil- vador Laurel, the Vice-Presi- 


ll :I Uis&L>A V ! ach T iiivUbnR 0 


1 (JL V. 


i- 


[ppmes Defence Minister, yes- 
teraay said a presidential 
j-Kpton early next year will 
help wing political stability to 
the Philippines and settle 

once and for all" doubts 
fboui President Aquino's 
leadership. 

The lack of a coherent 
policy to counter the “steadily 
growing” communist insur- 
gency and expanded political 
activities by radical left- 
wingers had begun to polarize 
the nation, Mr Entile said. 

On Sunday 3.000 protesters, 
at a demonstration to mark 
the 1972 imposition of martial 
law, demanded the resigna- 
tion of Mr Entile, who they 
denounced as a “fascist" and a 
“threat to peace and dem- 
ocracy". 

The defence chiefs ad- 
vocacy of a tough policy 
against the 17.000-strong New 
People’s Army won praise 
among a similar sized crowd 
of Marcos loyalists that 
simultaneously gathered out- 
side military headquarters to 
chant its support for Mr 
Entile, tor 16 years the De- 
fence Minister of the ousted 
leader. Mr Ferdinand Marcos. 

Mr Entile said many people 
questioned the credentials of 
Mrs Aquino to hold -office 
because she took power after a 
four-day, civilian-backed mili- 
tary revolt which he led jointly 
with the armed forces chief; 
General Fidel Ramos. 

Mrs Aquino “is a very 
popular person and there is no 
problem that this Govern- 
ment will stand on its own 
popularity". Mr Entile said. 

He said that, if there was a 
public consensus for a new 
presidential election, then he 
would support it. “Then 
maybe we would have stabil- 
ity in this country." 

• Cabinet meeting: Mr Sal- 


dent, has called 
today of the Cabinet and the 
National Security Council, 
government officials said 
(Reuter reports). 

President Aquino returns 
on Thursday from a nine-day 
visit to the United States. 
During her absence. Mr Lau- 
rel, Mr Entile, and General 
'Ramos have expressed con- 
cern at the continuing activity 
by the communist- New 
People’s Army. 

Mr Laurel said during the 
weekend that the enlarged 
National Security Council 
should meet to discuss the 
insurgency, which appears to 
be continuing unabated de- 
spite a start at peace talks. 

It is not known whether Mrs 
Aquino has approved the 
meetings. 

• Colonel surrenders: An 
army colonel, wanted in 
connection with the murder of 
the opposition leader, Benigno 
Aquino, surrendered at a mili- 
tary camp yesterday, a court 
official said (Reuter reports). 

Colonel Vicente Tinas was 
one of 26 men, including the 
former armed forces chief; 
General Fabian Ver, acquitted 
in December of charges of 
involvement in the 1983 kill- 
ing of the husband of Presi- 
dent Aquino. The Supreme 
Court has ordered a new trial 
for the 26 men. 

• US aid: A US Air Force 
plane, loaded with food and 
medical supplies, arrived in 
Manila yesterday with the first 
instalment of a $20 million 
(£13.3 million) donation to 
Filipino troops and civilians 
(AP reports). 

The gift included $10 mil- 
lion in medical supplies for 
the Philippine aimed forces. 

President Reagan approved 
the aid after he met President 
Aquino last week. 


Sudan food airlift 
to risk rebel fire 

From Charles Harrison, Nairobi 


International relief organ- 
izations plan to lannch Opera- 
tion Rainbow this week, an 
airlift -of food to pants of 
southern Sudan, in spite of 
threats by the rebel Sudan 
People’s Liberation Army to 
shoot down any planes flying 
over the “war zone". 

Relief flights have been 
halted since the SPLA shot 
down' a civilian airliner as it 
took off from Malakal in die 
south a month ago. Since then 
the famine crisis, affecting at 
least two million people, has 
deepened, and it is feared that 
thousands, including many 
children, have already died 
from malnutrition or related 
diseases. 

The -Prime Minister of Su- 
dan, Mr Sadiq aJ-Mabdi, said 
in Khartoum at the weekend 
that the security situation in 
the south was being brought 
under control. The SPLA, 
however, claims that its forces 
are in control of almost the 
entire area. 

Eight gunmen opened fire 
on the Sudan Council of 
Ministers' building in Khar- 
toum on Sunday, but were all 
arrested or killed after a 
shoot-out with guards. It is not 
clear who the attackers were, 
as the authorities have made 
no statement Khartoum yes- 
terday was outwardly calm. 

Operation Rainbow, funded 
by the United States. Canada, 



Mr Sadiq al-Mahdi: says 
south being tamed. 


The Netherlands, the World 
Food Programme and the j 
United Nations Children's f 
Fund, was to have started at 
the weekend, bit was -port* 
pooed because of uncertainty 
about the safety of planes 
flying into southern airfields; 

A Hercules C 130 freighter 
plane is due in Khartoum 
today to be loaded for the 
airlift, which will initially be 
directed to Malakal, carrying 
more than 20 tons of food and 
medicines. 

Mr Winston Prattley, the 
UN emergency aid co-or- 
dinator in Khartoum, said the 
flight would be manned by 
civilians, and he trusted that 
the SPLA would not try to 
interfere with the purely 
humanitarian operation. 

There are enough funds to 
operate the airlift for a month, 
hot it is hoped that further 
support for it win be found. 

Wan, farther to the west, isf 
also in desperate need of food. 
Relief workers there say a few 
ounces of bread each day are 
being distributed to children 
crowding the Roman Catholic 
mission. But these supplies 
are dwindling fast Many peo- 
ple have left the town to fo 
for food and roots in 

countryside. 

Red Cross workers say peo- 
ple are dying every day, and at 
least a third of the children are 
badly malnourished. 

Farther south, at Nanis, 
food supplies have been mov- 
ing by road from Kenya to feed 
thousands of starring people, 
but this has brought an im- 
mense influx of about 30,000 
people, many of whom have 
walked long distances. 

A Saudi Arabian Air Force I 
plane has flown to Junayah. in [ 
Darfur region, with flour, (til, i 
milk and sugar. Farther I 
flights are expected. 

But the (amine in the south- 
ern Sudan, where fanners 
have been unable to cultivate 
their crops because of the war 
between the SPLA and the 
Government, is so severe that 
the airlifts will touch only a 
few of the worst areas.

Concorde/ 
welcomed 
by 40,000 
Americans 

Ontario, CSfifornm (Renter)' 
- Forty thousand people 
waited up to four hours .on 
Sunday night to see the de- 
layed, arrival of a supersonic 
Concorde airliner on its first 
passenger flight to the Los An- 
geles area. _ ' . 

A British Afrways- Gon- 
' cordel which was to have made 
-the (fight from London, was 
forced to- turn back over die 

Atlantic- after 45 minutes be- 
cause of engine trouble*, an 
- airline spokeswoman said. 

But the 40,000 people, some 
of whoa had camped out over- 
sight on the outskirts of Onta- 
rio airport, 50 miles east of 
Los Angeles, stayed on to 
Higgr a delayed replacement 

S lane. Fart of the crowd paid 
5 a head to enter the airport 
to photograph the aircraft. 
Outside, motorists watched 
the plane land smoothly. 1 . 

“This is a great thrill, to 
welcome: the Concorde to 
California," saidLMr_James 
Abbott, aged 48. 

The flight was part of a 
British Airways campaign to 
build a wide-ranging charter

Canada-US free market 

Mulroney’s hopes 



From John Best, Ottawa 


Mr Brian -Mulroney, the 
. Canadian Prime Minister, has 
admitted for the first time that 
one of his 'pet projects — free 
trade with the United States - 
may be heading for the rocks. 

The Prime Minister sur- 
prised and disappointed sup- 
porters of his trade initiative 
by saying: “If youwere/a bet- 
;twg .man 'right'.' now, you’d. 

- have .to say there’s going to be , 
tip deal The Americans are 
going to shoot it down. The 
Americans don't want a deal.” 

•Mr Mulroney was referring 
to mounting opposition in the 
US Congress to a comprehen- 
sive trade agreement with Ca- 
nada, which enjoys a SCan 1 5 
biltion-(£30 billion) surplus in 
trade between the two coun- 
tries, with annual exports of 
about SCan 92 billion. 

:The Prime Minister’s as- 
sessment was : echoed by a 
number of provincial Pre- 
miers. after they, talked to Mr'. 
Mulroney and were briefed by 
the chief Canadian negotiator. 

Mr Don Getty, the Premier 
of Alberta, said: “I don't think 
anyone feels with certainty 
that we'll reach a trade agree- 
ment” Mr David Peterson, 
Premier of Ontario, said one 
would have to be clairvoyant ' 
to know- whether an accord 
will be struck. - - 

- President Reagan and Mr 
Mulroney want a free trade 
pact, but preliminary talks 
have been bedevilled by ques- 


tions about what should be on 
thebai^ainiflgjabie. 

For instance, Canada zs 
determined to protect its so- 
called cultural industries - 
book publishing, films and the 
like — against inroads from its 
pdwerfii] neighbour. But the 
US says cultural industries 
should not be excluded from 
the negotiations. 

. The US also says Canadian 
. regional development and so- 
cial .- security programmes 
should be examined to see 
whether it migbt give Cana- 
dian producers an unfair ad- 
vantage in a free market. Ca- 
nada insists that these should 
have no place in the negotia- 
tions. 

Mr Mulroney has invested a 
good (teal of personal prestige 
as well as political capita) in 
the fiw-trade venture. Yet he 
admitted iri a meeting with 
students at Brandon, Mani- 
toba,.. that the political at- 
mosphere in Washington is 
“poisoned" against free trade. 

“Some American politi- 
cians are saying silly things 
because they want to get elect- 
ed," he said, referring to the 
November congressional elec- 
tions. “But that is a transient 

matter' we’U have to see 

what it looks like in No- 
vember, and December." 

Mr Mulroney' said Ca- 
nadian voters will be given a 
chance to ratify any agreement 
that is reached.

Lebanon tension rises 
as Israel builds up 
strength of SLA allies 



From Ian Murray, Haris, south Lebanon 


To the naked eye it looks no 
more than a line of dense grey 
smoke swirling up the zigzag 
road of the bare hillside: But 
the Irish soldier, squinting 
through the binoculars on the 
balcony of his command post, 
could see dark shapes in the 
middle of the dust cloud. 

One tank, four M 1 13 arm- 
oured troop carriers and four 
trucks, he reported. Every day, 
for more than a week now, a 
similar heavy convoy has 
made its way up Hukban Hill 
to the gun position on top 
where the Israeli-backed 
“South Lebanon Army" 
(SLA) outpost was nearly 
overrun 10 days ago by local 
Sbia militiamen and suffered 
the humiliating loss of an arm- 
oured vehicle, which was driv- 
en back and paraded through 
the streets of Tyre. 

Israeli convoys have been 
climbing the hill regularly ever 
since. Two huge bulldozers 
have been strengthening the 
fortifications. On Sunday the 
Israeli Cabinet agreed to boost 
support for the SLA. but the 
Irish soldiers of the UN Inter- 
im Force in Lebanon (UnifiJ) 
have been aware of that for 
much longer. 

Commandant Morris Cana- 
van, at the Irish Battalion 
headquarters in Tibnin, had 
been monitoring increased 
activity in the border area in 
recent weeks as what he calls 
the “resistance element" (Am- 
al and Hezbollah Shia militia) 
mount attacks on the DFF (De 
Facto Forces) of the SLA. 

His reports show a new 
150 mm battery just north- 
east of Maijayoun, the SLA 
headquarters, which has been 
pumping 70 shells and more a 
night into the area around the 
refugee camps south of Sidon, 
just in front of the forward 
SLA positions of Kafr FaJous. 

There is firing daily 
lhrongbout his battalion area's 
frontier with the SLA po- 
sitions. and the number of 
attacks is growing, with both 
sides firing at anything that 
moves in order to frighten 
each other. 

He has found the local 
people have become more 
desperate and militant during 
the past three mouths because 
their hopes that the Israelis 
might do a deal with Amal and 
pull out were dashed. This has 


undermined Amafs position 
and increased recruitment for 
militant action to force Israel 
out 

He knows the immediate 
countryside well and is sure it 
is run by the secular Amal 
movement and not by the Ir- 
anian-backed Hezbollah fun- 
damentalists. The two groups, 
contrary to Israeli claims, do 
not seem to be rivals but are 
allies, he said. Their slogans 
are side by ride on walls in the 
villages. 

But be has ndticed money 
and the fundamentalists' in- 
fluence are creeping in to- 
gether. “On my last tour there 
were eight bars here where you 
coukl get a beer," he said. 
“Now there are none". 

Two other factors, he be- 
lieves, have added to the 
growing militancy. One was 
the difficulty of getting work, 
which led young men to accept 
dollars to fight. The other was 
fear. “The locals are fright- 
ened out of their minds of the 
Israelis coming back. They 
wake up each morning ana 
can see the Israeli positions 
dominating the skyline." 

What he calls the South 
Ridge stretched high in the 
distant beat haze, a dusty 
track led through a dip in the 
ridge between an SLA and an 
Irish position. Down that road 
last month Lieutenant Aengus 
Murphy from Galway was 
blown to pieces by a radio- 
controlled bomb. 

The Irish battalion had been 
warned not to continue clear- 
ing away bombs which are 
regularly placed along that 
road, but they had done so 
because rite unit supplies a 
platoon based at its southern 
end. The battalion was ac- 
cused by the Shias of helping 
the SLA, who also use the road 
on which Lieutenant Murphy 
died 

“If you are not accused by 
one side of helping, you are 
accused by the other,” Com- 
mandant Cana van said bitter- 
ly. “If you have a job to do, 
you are bound to be hurting 
somebody." 

There are norices up in 
Haris saying the people sup- 
port Unifil and are sorry about 
the lieutenant's death. The 
people, who obviously make a 


good living from the shops 
which sell duty-free electronic 
goods to the troops, show 
‘ every sign of wanting them to 
stay. 

But at the UN headquarters 
in Nakoura there is a sad 
awareness that they arc in 
danger of having to leave if at- 
tacks against the troops conti- 
nue. Yesterday rile French 
pulled out from three more 
positions south of Sidon to be 
replaced by other battalions 
because they have become the 
mime target. There is talk of a 
"domino effect" if the French 
pull out altogether, which 
would force Unifil to leave 
and allow the Shias to boast of 
a victory. 

The senior official at the 
headquarters was quite dear 
that it is Israel’s refusal to 
allow the UN to deploy along 
the border which is at the 
heart of the trouble. The UN 
has a mandate to confiscate 
weapons from anyone trying 
to attack Israel, he explained. 
But they have no mandate to 
confiscate weapons from resis- 
tance fighters who are trying 
to force occupation troops to 
leave Lebanon. 

Attacks are intensifying 
against the SLA and the Israe- 
lis, but if the UN troops try to 
stop them they are defying a 
UN resolution to give, every 
support to those resisting an 
occupation. 

The local Amal have told 
the UN they want nothing to 
do with the Palestine Libera- 
tion Organization, but that 
they do want their country 
free of Israeli troops. “Amal 
say they will fight as long as 
the Israelis are in Lebanon, 
but once they leave the in- 
centive to fight will be 
removed," the official said. 

The UN warned a year ago 
that the new situation was in- 
evitable and now “these gloo- 
my predictions seem to be 
coming true". 

The truth is that the SLA 
position above the villag e of 
Kefar has now been heavily 
reinforced, that regular bom- 
bardments are smashing into 
supposed resistance positions, 
and that support from the 
Israeli Cabinet has been given 
to any military action needed 
to “quieten" the area. 


Election boost for Austrian Greens 


With barely two months to 
go before a genera) ejection, 
Austria's Green Party has 
achieved an unprecedented 
success in local elections in 
Styria. the country's southern 
province: 


Front Rkhard Bassett, Vienna 

Polling 3.7 per cent of the 
vote, it is now represented for 
the first time in the Styrian 
provincial parliament with 
two seats. 

The Greens' success re- 
sulted largely from dissatisfac- 


tion with the Socialist Party, 
which lost 5 per cent of its 
votes. 

The Green Parly seems set 
to win representation in the 
national Parliament for the 
first time. 


Israeli 
troops 
poised to 
attack 

Gonthnied from page 1 

the south of Lebanon during 
the past two days. 

While the Israelis were 
claiming that Iranian revolu- 
tionary guards had partici- 
pated in assaults on their SLA 
militia allies and would “have 
to be dealt with" the 
Hezbollah — which was 
responsible for last week’s 
mass attack on the SLA — has 
promised in Beirut rim it 
intends to “break the idea of 
an Israeli 'security* zone in 
southern Lebanon ’ with new 
guerrilla raids of increasing 
ferocity. 

At a mass meeting in the 
Shia Muslim district of Zikak 
Blat in west Beirut, Sheikh 
Muhammad Husain Fadla- 
Uah, who is widely believed to 
be the spiritual head of the 
Hezbollah,' toki thousands of 
supporters: “The defeat of 
Israel is a realistic goal, not 
just a dream." 

If the Sheikh was a Palestin- 
ian speaker, such statements 
might be regarded as standard 
rhetoric. But there are few in 
Beirut who do .not take the 
Hezbollah, which is growing 
rapidly in power and influence 
ban, m deadly earnest. Nor 
could the preseore of Mr 
Mahmoud Nourani, the Ira- 
nian Charge Affaires in Bei- 
rut, have been lost on the 
audience. 

At the rally, held to comm- 
emorate three Muslim guerril- 
las who were killed in last 
week's battles against General 
Antoine Lahd's SLA in the 
foothills south-west of Jez- 
zine, numerous other Hez- 
bollah speakers suggested that 
there could be no political 
settlement in southern Leba- 
non until the Israelis with- 
drew. 

There was an implicit, 
though not stated, rejection of 
UN resolution 425 which calls 
for the complete withdrawal 
of the Israeli Army to tire 
international frontier. 

No mention was made at 
the rally , of the attacks an 
French UN troops in southern 
Lebanon which the UN -and 
now the Israelis — are blaming 
on the Hezbollah. 

There is agrowing suspicion 
in Beirut, however, that 
France’s demand that Israel 
should withdraw to the inter- 
national border and give up its 
occupation zone in southern 
Lebanon is intended to pacify 
the Hezbollah and prevent 
further attacks on French 
soldiers. 

French UN troops moved 
out of their post at TeirDibba, 
east of Tyre, yesterday in the 
fourth phase of their redeploy- 
ment southwards away from 
the most militiant Shia areas 
of the UN zone.

Indian links with South Africa 

Press reports expose details 
of diamond and spice trade 


While Mr Rajiv Gandhi, the 
Indian Prime Minister, casti- 
gates the Western world, and 
in particular Britain, for main- 
taining trading fafai with 
South Africa, the Indian press 
has been pointing out India's 
trading links with the hated 
apartheid regime. 

India's hypocritical attitude 
is deeply offensive, said one 
European observer, describing 
the revelations in a number of 
magazines and newspapers 
here. 

Press reports have con- 
centrated in particular on the 
links Indian industry has es- 
tablished with the South Afri- 
can diamond trade. The Sun- 
day Observer said that while 
Mr Gandhi was telling Mrs 
Thatcher not to give human 
ihts and freedom second 
ace to material gains, the 
diamond trade between India 
and South Africa continued to 
flourish. 

Sunday ma gazine said that 
in 1985-86 India imported 
34.23 million carats of uncut 
diamonds worth more than 
£550 million, compared with 
26.3 million carats in 1984-5. 
The rough stones were pol- 
ished-and processed by about 
400,000 jewel trade workers, 
mainly in and around Bran- 
bay, mid were re-exported to 
bring in about £725 million of 
foreign exchange. 

Where, the writers asked, do 
these diamonds come from? 
The answer they give is at least 
partly from South Africa. The 
diamonds are bought mainly 

Tambo set 
to meet 
Shultz 

By Our Foreign Staff 

Mir Oliver Tambo’s meet- 
ings with Sir Geoffrey Howe, 
the Foreign Secretary, and Mr 
Chester Crocker, America's 
leading envoy to southern 
Africa, have advanced the 
anti-apartheid movement to a 
position of wide acceptance in- 
use West. 

The next step for Mr 
Tambo, president of the Af- 
rican National Congress, will 
be a meeting with Mr George 
Shultz, the IK Secretary of 
State, who is expected to visit 
Africa next month. 

A US official said yesterday 
that no firm itinerary had 
been drawn up for the visit but 
Lusaka was a “highly likely" 
venue that would certainly 
“provide an opportunity" fair

The two meetings in Lon- 
don at the weekend were at the

highest level yet between the 
ANC and the British and 
American administrations. 

Mr Tambo has ensured that 
lines win be open in future for 
communication with the Brit- 
ish Government. The Foreign 
Office said no further meet- 
ings were planned, but “there 
might well be further ones if 
the need for them is felt". 

Sr Geoffi^’ reiterated" his 
opposition to violence as a 
way of bringing down South 
Africa’s apartheid system, and 
to comprehensive and man- 
datory economic sanctions. 

An ANC spokesman said 
Mr Tambo had countered that 
South Africa's approach left 
no room for anything except 
“internal struggle" and cxk 
ordinaied “solidarity" from 
outside .South. Africa,. . ' 


From Michael Hamlyn, Delhi 
through the Diamond Trading 
Corporation (DTC) of Lon- 
don and its associated com- 
pany, the Central Selling 
Organization (CSO). Both are 
arras of major South African 
producers, such as De Beers. 

Though the stones they buy 
are described as of mixed 
origin and though DTC trades 
in stones from many other 
sources, a large proportion of 
them — , perhaps 15 per cent, 
perhaps more — come directly 
from the South African mines. 

Since the revelations that 
Indian traders are like Ameri- 
can women — who the US 
Secretary of State, Mr George 
Shultz, feared would not wish 
to give up buying diamonds — 
the Bombay industry has been 
asked to buy its stocks from 
the DTC Switzerland, instead 
of London. 

But The Sunday Observer 
reports traders as saying that it 
does not matter where they get 
the raw diamonds from. The 
paper also reports that India’s 
External Affairs Ministry feds 
that, given the stranglehold 
De Beos has on the inter- 
national market, it would be 
very difficult for India to plug 
the loopholes. .. 

■ Loojfaoles - in regulations - 
governing trade . other than 
. diapionris haye also attracted . 
press attention. Many^ have 
pointed out a curiosity in the 
trade in spices, which has 
shown a startling rise with 
countries such, as Zambia, 
Mozambique, Malawi and 
Tanzania. 


Tn 1982-3, for example, 
Sunday magazine noted, Zam- 
bia imported rich curry spices 
worth 1 10,000 rupees (£6,000) 
- enough, the magazine sug- 
gested, for the few thousand 
Indians living in that country 
of 5.1 million people. The 
very next year the trade went 
up more than sixfold. 

Simultaneously the spice 
trade increased with the other 
front-line states. Mozam- 
bique’s purchases doubled 
from 3.87 miWion rupees to 
6.68 million. Malawi's went 
up four times from 280,000 
rupees to a million. Tanzania 
increased its imports from oil 
to 990,000 rupees worth. 

It is not, the magazine 
suggests, that culinary tastes in 
black Africa have dunged 
suddenly in favour of curry 
and rice, nor has there been an 
influxofpeopleof Indian orig- 
in. The answer is that a cheap 
and reliable simply of spices 
has opened up for the million 
or more residents of South 
Africa who are of Indian 
stock.

miners 
disrupt service 

From Michael Hornsby, Johannesburg 


A memorial service at the 
Kinross gold mine, 60 miles 
south-east of Johannesburg, 
for the 177 men who died 
there last Tuesday in an 
underground fire, was dis- 
rupted yesterday when some 
2,000 black miners left the 
service, saying that theywould 
not pray with whites. 

The service, held in an open 
field, was organized by 
Gencor, the mining house 
which owns the Kinross mine. 
The trouble began when a 
couple of hundred chanting 
black miners jogged slowly 
round the area where those 
attending the service woe 
sitting. 

About 2,000 other blacks, 
out of a total of about 5,000 
people present, then left their 
seats and joined the dem- 
onstrators, leaving only a 
small number of white digni- 
taries, most of them Gencor 
and Chamber of Mines exec- 
utives, stfll at the service. - 

The demonstrators pillaged 
refreshment tables which had 
been set out for the mourners, 
and set offal a ran towards the 
mine’s No. 2 shaft, where the 


fire occurred. Some stones 
were thrown before officials of 
the National Union of Mine- 
wortos brought the situation 
under control. 

The demonstrators later re- 
grouped. at the site of the 
memorial service, where they

F Either the union has allowed

(T & G is my union. 1 have been a

started work as a university 
lecturer in Liverpool in 1966, at 
the age of 24. I'd hate to think it 
was involved in something like 
this at any official level 
The fens are straightforward. 
We have always had only a 
handful of T & G branches affili- 
-ated to the constituency party. 
iThis was also true of my old 
‘Ormskirk constituency, before the

Kilroy-Silk on Eric Heffer, who

Before leaving home with Jan 
for Bournemouth and the Labour 
Party Conference, I ask Peter 
Fisher, my former parliamentary 
agent, to find out. 

"It’s probably a mistake'*, he 
says. “A typing error." 

It probably is. There are lots of 
those, too, and some of them are 
important. Am I becoming 
paranoid? 

Z told Peter that I want to know 
the number of members in each of 
the T & G branches affiliated to 
Knowsley North. If all else fails, 
that's what well catch them on. 
I'm sure, for instance, that the 
6/612 branch does not have 
enough members actually living in 
my constituency to entitle it to its 
.maximum allocation of five 
candidates. 

- ' There's another factor, too. 
Instead of paying in a £5 subscrip- 
tion fee each time for each 
delegate, as almost all other 
organizations do, the TGWU pays 
a lump sum. At the management 
committee meeting last week, 
Peter Killeen, assistant rqponal 
organizer of the Labour Party in 
the north-west announced that 
the TGWU has paid only £1 10. 
That covers 22 delegates, so they'll ' 
have to lose at least a dozen. My 
job is to ensure that it is the 
Militants, not my supporters, who 
are discarded.

Neil Kinnock’s conference speech 
was electrifying. When he came to 
the part about the “grotesque 
spectacle of a Labour council, a 
Labour council, hiring taxis to 
scuttle round the city fending out 
redundancy notices to its own 
workers", it was as if a bomb fed 
exploded. 

The conference floor erupted. - 
And that bastard Eric Heffer, the- 
prima donna to outdo all prima

the platform and out of the halL 

He'd been waiting for the 
opportunity, of course. I was 
watching him throughout the 


speech. He sat aloof, at the front of 
the stage just to the left of Neil, 
disdainful right from the very 
beginning. He didn't laugh, as 
everyone else did, at Neil’s 
comparison of Tebbit and 
Whitelaw to arsenic and old lace, 
and 1 never once saw him applaud. 

It strikes me that he has never 
recovered from -the fast that he 
wasn't elected to the leadership of 
the Party in 1983. He thinks; God 
help us. that he should be the

complaining at lunch in Blackpool 
when Neil was first elected to the 
NEC that it liad taken him 10 
years and Neil only a couple. He 
resented that 

I was afraid, for Neil, worried 
-that he would' think the booing 
and jeering was directed against 
him rather than against Heifer, as 
most of it was. I was afraid that he 
would not be able to continue his

Part 2: Ghosts in the jrarty machine 


Militants arrived on the verandah 
of the Bournemouth conference 
centre: Terry Fields, the Militant 
supporter MP for Liverpool 
Broadgreen, Eddie Loyden, the 
member for Liverpool Garston, 
Derek Hatton, Tony Mulbeam, 
John Hamilton, nominal leader of 
Liverpool City Council, and doz- 
ens of those Militant youths with 
badges plastered all over , their 
donkey coats and pints of beer in . 
their hands, stood just the other 
side of the cameras, almost level 
with the lens — only a couple of 
yards from me. They leered, as 
their ilk do in Knowsley. 

The atmosphere was tense and 
threatening. Hatton was to be ' 
interviewed after me, Robin ex- 
plained, and he came on his own 
initiative and stood directly be- 
hind me. I don't know if they 
really thought that they were 


frightening me, but they weren't. I 
said what I’ve beetriookugfor an 
occasion to sayafl these long 
summer months. 1 couldn't wait

All I wanted to do was watch- the 
early evening TV news to see how 
■they would report Neil's second 
conference speech, which - -was 
shorter but equally tofectrifyiBg, 
this time demolishing ScdigtlL L 
fed a fist fight instead. . 

As the news programme began, 
a youth who had been making 
himself conspicuous in the hotel 
all the week appeared through the 
open doorway. He began talking. 
One of his mates motioned him to 
be quiet 

Neil appeared on the screen.- - 

The youth started to chatter.

about unemployment In Knowsley. 

“Yes," She said. “Of course, the 
trouble with yoor c o n stitu ents is 
that they're not self-starters, are 
they? They've no enteprenenrial 
spirit, no grt-np-and-go." 

_ I was flabbergasted. “You’ve no

"“Oh, I'd teve to," she said. “Bat 
there would be demonstrations, 
noise. I wouldn't be able to- bear 
what they fed to say.** 

“Meet them here," I said 
quickly. 

She glanced at her private 
secretary, Tim Fletcher. “AH 
right" she said. 

- - - The propaganda value to die 1 
Labour Party of the subsequent 
visit was enormous. The Tories 
acknowledged that. “A disaster 
from start to finish”, Tom Kiq, 
the Secretory of State for Employ- 
ment said to me. 

Militants in Knowsley thought 
otherwise - or some did. The 
ch air m an, Jim McGintey^ arid- . 
dzed raefor taking tfechfldrexr to 
see the Prime Minister. He wanted 
a - resolution from his branch ' 
condemning me. Yet several of Ins-, 
supporters were the most 
give in ensuring that their c 
were among the lucky 25. ' 


“Come on, pal,” 1 said even- 
tually. “We’re trying to listen." 

“Say please," he _ sneered. 
“Weren't you brought up to say 
please?" 

“Don't patronize me," I said as 
quietly and calmly as I could. 

- ."“Why?" tie jeered. “You wanna 
■ make something of it?" 

He was calling me out, just as 
we used to do all those long years 
ago when 1 was a kid on the slum 
streets of Birmingham. I was sure 
he was about to . hit me, so I hit 
him first, just a left He went 
backwards so fast that, unfortu- 
nately, he put an elbow through a 
-.window. _ ; . ..... ...

about to hit him again, but the 
Tight,, astheysay; had .gone .out of 
. . -him. He couldn't cope with having 
bis Uuff -called! He started 
whining. 

“Pm going to tell die manager. 
Pm going to tell the police." He 
walked towards the phone. 

“Tell: who you like,” I said. I 
. turned back to watch the news. 

- ; The youth broughHhe manager, - 
.-.at whom I winked reassuringly. 
“PU -pay for- the -window,” -J 
whispered without my assailant 
hearing. But. the manager seemed 
delighted, despite the broken win- 
dow. “He's fed it coming to him 
all the week,” he said. 

We bad a meeting with Michael . 
Cockerell, who wants to make a 
film -about my reselection diffi- 
culties for BBC Television^ He 
mid his colleagues want the history 
of the - Knowsley . conflict, the 
reasons for itand examples of how 
the battle is being- fought. I feel I 
am on trial. “What's wrong with • 
you that they should want to get 
rid of you? What have you done?” 
are the unintended implications of 
their questions. 

To complicate nratters, straight- 
forward political ambition also 
plays a part at Knowsley, es- 
pecially in. the case of Jim Lloyd, 
leader of the council, who has 
never made any secret of coveting 
my seat: For. the last two years he 
has constantly intrigued a gainst

leader of a council. It’s no co- 
incidence, I'm sure, that most 
councillors who oppose me have 
council chairmanships . or vice- 
cfemnanships given to them by 
Jim Lloyd.

THE TIMES TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 23 1986

IZ^eton Street, London El 9XN Telephone: 01-481 4100 


,|S|2SP».SIOE OFTHEHELt 

Stockholm is significant for a 
number of reasons, not the 
least being that it is the first 


arms control agreement of any 
kind since 1979 when Presi- 
dents Carter and Brezhnev 
signed the second Strategic 
Arms Limitation Treaty (Salt- 
2) — and that was never 
ratified by Congress. Arms 
control measures do not in 
themselves enhance anyone's 
security - this depends very 
much on what is in them. But 
unless negotiations bear fruit 
from time to time, those taking 
part will lose faith and may 
even stop trying. 

But the agreement is also 
important because of what it is 
in itself! While there are few 
who now believe that war is 
likely to break out in Central 
Europe through the straight- 
forward aggression of one side 
against the other, there are 
many who still fear that it 
could do so by accident and 
miscalculation. While the 
obligatory notification of mili- 
tary manoeuvres, the exchange 
of infonnation and observers, 
do not in themselves guarantee 
peace, they help to reassure 
edgy generals and contribute 
towards a lowering of tension. 

The Final Act itself made a 
start by laying down such 
provisions for exercises 
involving more than 25,000 
men. But they were voluntary 
and limited in scope. The 
Soviet Union has not invited 
observers from the major 
Western allies to any Warsaw 
Pact exercises since 1979, and 
has turned down all invita- 


tions to attend Nato exercises 

Presumably to avoid any 
moral obligation to recip- 
rocate. 

For the West to have con- 
verted these vol untar y mea- 
sures into- mandatory 
undertakings is a not inconsid- 
erable diplomatic achievmenL 
The Russians began the ODE 
negotiations by insisting on no 
more than a series of declara- 
tory statements on peace and 
brotherly love. This inspired 
little confidence in anyone^ 
Eventually, however, they 
gave ground to the Nato 
demand for more practical 
measures, since when there 
have been compromises on 
both sides. 

The Western powers orig- 
inally wanted the joint noti- 
fication of troop movements 
involving as few as 6,000 men 
(approximately the size of a 
peacetime brigade) and for this 
to be made 45 days in advance. 
The Russians wanted a mini- 
mum of 20,000 troops and the 
length of notice to be only 30 
days. Moscow wanted Nato air 
and sea movements in the 
Atlantic to be covered, and 
was unhappy about swapping 
military data. In the end the 
West agreed to one grand 
Soviet-inspired declaration on 
the non-use of force. 

The final compromise came 
only after the clock was 
stopped on Friday. The West- 
ern decision to give way (in ■ 
effect) to Russian insistence 
that ail aerial inspections over 
the Soviet Union should be 
carried out from Soviet air- 


A MODEL OF ITS 


David Owen was a well- 
behaved guest at the Liberal 
% Conference yesterday. He 
praised Mr Des Wilson’s work 
for the homeless. He praised 
his Alliance partners* long 
commitment to constitutional 
reform. He did not tread on 
toes. 

In particular, he did not 
abuse the unilateralists of Lib- 
eral CND. He left Mr Steel 
with a clear path towards what 
both men hope will be a 
massive rejection of the anti- 
nuclear amendment to the 
defence resolution that is due 
for debate today. The Liberal 
party managers have done 
theirjob. Dr Owen did nothing 
to undo it. 

It could not be said, how- 
* ever, that he ducked today’s • 
arguments about the replace- 
ment of Polaris. For he took 
advantage of the inadvisability 
of savaging CND at East- 
bourne and, instead, delivered 
a speech which quietly placed 
unilateralism in it proper con- 
text At the end he had left it 
firmly where it belongs — at 
the furthest margin of serious 
debate. 

He put before the Liberals a 
detailed panorama of the 
a disarmament negotiations that 


For some time a subterra- 
nean battle has been quietly 
waged in Whitehall between 
those who feel that urgent 
measures are required to halt 
the spread of AIDS and those 
who seek to avoid public 
hysteria about the disease. 
That nervous dispute has now 
emerged into the open over the 
question of whether com- 
pulsory AIDS testing should 
be introduced for visitors from 
African countries

Both 






duiii aims arc. of cour ^ 
sensible. If a choice has to be 
made between them, however, 
the need to halt the spread of 
AIDS must dearly take prior- 
itv. Since AIDS is incurable, 
the only way of limiting its 
ravages is to "limit the number 
of people who catch it m ih 
first place. 

Until now the DHSS has 
relied mainly upon h«» 
education” to achieve this. I 
has warned against the sexti 
and other practices by whic 
the disease is spread and 
suggested “safe sex ■ » , 

guards that reduce the nsk ot 
infection. It has not sought o

ence in this Autumn con- 
ference season is likely to hear 
a better one. Only delegates 
with the most adamantine 
mandates around their necks 
could foil to be swayed. Only 
the most determinedly nar- 
row-minded couid foil to see 
the scope of the game in which- 
their party aspires to play a 
part. 

Dr Owen did not say that 
unilateral nuclear disarma- •• 
ment was a simple policy for 
simple minds. He did not say 
that to change one’s own 
military capacity was child's 
play and that it was to change 
the capacity of one’s enemies 
(and one’s allies) that the skill 
of politicians needed to be 
addressed. But by taking his 
audience on a tour around 
Stockholm and Geneva, 
around the Partial Test Ban 
treaty's implications for SDI 
and the Palme proposals for a 
nuclear-free corridor in Eu- 
rope, he showed it where the 
real work was being done. 

Some of his hearers will 
doubtless have found it irritat- 
ing. It certainly had elements 
of the pre-examination re- 
vision class where the teacher’s 

JUST TESTING 

Their use would be a reason- 
able precaution jn relation to 
visitors from East and Central 
Africa for two reasons. Not 
only is there a high incidence 
of AIDS there - in Uganda, for 
instance, between 10 and 15 
per cent of the population are 
estimated to be AIDS carriers 
— but also AIDS carriers in 
these countries are drawn al- 
most equally from hetero- 
sexuals and homosexuals. 
They would therefore tend to 
spread the disease to sections 
of the community here which 
as yet are not seriously at risk. 

To this commonsense argu- 
ment three broad objections 
are raised. The first is that 
compulsory tests will achieve 
little practical good since the 
percentage of AIDS camera 
among visitors from East and 
Central Africa is likely to be a 
small percentage of a small 
number. Last year, however, 
the total number of visitors 
from Zambia, Kenya. Tan- 
zania and Uganda was just 

under 60.000. If ” e . as ? u ™ 
AIDS carriers to be four per 
cent of the total - the percent- 
age of Malawi mineworkers in 

Sbuth Africa who were di- 
sposed as AIDS earner 
that would amount to 2.400 
people. By way of comparison, 
[£ly 240 people were di- 
agnosed as having the fiill- 
disease in Britain last 

year. . 

A second objection is that

craft was justifiable under the 
circumstances. It is a.pity that 
the American argument (that 
the aircraft should be flown by 
neutral powers) did not pre- 
vail. But in the end it was. more 
important that overall agree- 
ment, which is very much on 
the lines that the West -had 
wanted in the first - place, 
should be reached. ■ 

Indeed the greatest signifi- 
cance of the Stockholm agree- 
ment is that it establishes the 
principle under which 1 inspec- 
tions of exercises oh 
demand may be conducted on 
the ground or from- the air. The 
system as outlined is very 
limited. But the treaty has 
codified a system which could 
have far-reac hing implications 
for the future of arms control. 

It is a compromise and like 
all compromises, fells short of 
the ideal for all parties. In this 
respect one should not expea 
too much of it. It would be 
naive to assume that it will be 
interpreted at all times to 
everyone's satisfaction. There 
is clearly scope for discontent , 
and argument and for cheating . 
by any signatory determined - 
enough to try. Will the Soviet 
Union respect the spirit of the 
agreement? Its record for 
compliance with agreements 
in tiie past has not been 
unblemished and the West 
may live to regret its failure to 
secure even better verification 
machinery than it has. 

But it should promote what 
diplomats like : to call 
“transparency”. It always 
helps to see what is happening 
on the other side of the hilL 


only interest is in the scholar- 
ship boys. Liberals were 
refered airily to the **walk In 
the woods” formula and the 
need far a . ten kiloton space 
test threshold as though these 
were the commonest ground 
between him and his hearers. 

But if Dr Owen may have 
irritated, he did not patronise. 
Politicians rarely get the 
chance to counter ignorance 
with education instead ofbhis- 
ter. Either the timing is wrong 
(a quick fix is needed^ or the 
subject is wrong (the politician 
has a less than profound grip of 
what his officials have writ- 
ten). 

Yesterday the SDP leader 
was not looking for headlines 
or standing ovations. Nor will 
there be quick results; todayV 
vote will owe more to Mr 
Steel’s managerial skills than 
to Dr Owen’s professorial 
prowess. But he did set a 
standard of analysis on his 
favourite subject which others 
must now try to match. Mr 
George Younger, in particular, 
should find it a better blue- 
print for Bournemouth than 
the collected speeches of .Mr 
Michael Heseltine. 


Kenyan prostitutes — 80 per 
cent of whom are carriers, 
according to one survey — 
recently told the BBC Radio 
Four documentary, “File on 
Four”,, that British and other 
Western tourists woe among 
their clients. But it Should 
remove any racialist stigma 
from testing. 

It is, finally, argued that the 
resources required to fund 
testing could be better used — 
in particular, to finance anti- 
AIDS programmes in the Af- 
rican nations concerned. That 
is. unfortunately, very doubt- 
ful. The estimated cost pf an 
AIDS test varies greatly from 
as little as 8Tp to over £17. 
That would put the cost -of a 
testing programme at between 
£52.000 and just over £1 
million. Since the AIDS prob- 
lem in Africa is immense and 
growing, the political will to 
tackle it is uncertain, and the 
present programmes are of 
miniscule impact - "File on 
Four", for instance, discov- 
ered that in- one; . Ugandan 
province the health authorities 
were distributing fifty con- 
doms to a male population of 
70.000 — a million pounds 
would have little or no effect. 

As for comparing the advan- 
tages of AIDS testing to more 
expenditure on health educa-. 
tion. it should be pointed out 
that anyone tested could be 
charged the economic cost 
Few people, however, will buy 
pamphlets on “safe sex". 

Much is still unknown about 
AIDS. Many of the statistics 
quoted here are uncertain 
■guesstimates. When the risks 
of error are literally deadly, 
however, it seems sensible to 
lake as few of them as possible. 


LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 


Altruism rather than tax relief 


From Professor Conrad Russell 
Sir. Mr Nigel Lawson, in attacking 
the taxation proposals of the SDP 
and the Labour Party, has opened 
an issue of sufficient importance 
to deserve a correspondence, it is 
possible that the electorate does 
not give the lowering of taxes the 
sort of lonely priority Mr Lawson 
believes it does. • 

Dr Owen is probably right that 
Mr tawson has underrated; the 
altruism of the electorate. When ! 
pass- the queue for unemployment 
benefit on my way to work, I may 
physically pass by on the other 
side, but I raid it uncomfortable to 
do so in spirit. 

Moreover, even if we simply 
consider self-interest, most of us 
want services as well as money. 
People who have, for example, 
tried phoning a hospital switch- 
board may be fed up with under- 
staffed services in a time of high 
unemployment People who use 
the education service are usually 
well aware that the extra cost of 
paying for private schooling is far 
greater than the marginal increase 
in taxation needed to prevent the 
service from becoming un viable. 

Mr Lawson has also underrated 
the attachment of the not in- 
considerable proportion of us who 
work in the public sector to the 
ideal of service: those of us who 
see ourselves as struggling to 
protect the public against the 
consequences of an under-fi- 
nanced service find the suggestion 
of tax cuts not merely unattrac- 
tive, but offensive. Even if we 
consider only our crude economic 
interest, we are more concerned by 
the erosion of public-sector sal- 
aries than by the Comparatively 
marginal effect of tax changes. 

Above all, many of us feel that it 
is urgent, before it is too late, to re- 
turn a government which genu- 
inely believes in the public sector 
and wishes it to succeed. 

Mr Lawson daims that the 
"’turn of a Labour government 


would accelerate the brain drain. 
This may be true in some fields, 
but in my own field of university 
teaching the brain drain is more 
likely to be increased by the return 
of Mr Lawson and his colleagues 
for a further five years ip office 
than for any other reason. 

Yours faithfully. 

CONRAD RUSSELL, 

43 Streatley Road. NW6. 
September 19. . 

From Dr D. G. Medlev 
Sir, A highly significant aspect of 
the SDP taxation proposals seems 
to have received little attention 
from commentators. At present, 
hundreds of thousands — perhaps 
millions — of unemployed persons 
would gladly take modestly paid 
part-time jobs were it not so 
financially disadvantageous for 
them to do so. 

Whereas the present benefit and 
taxation systems make it unprofit- 
able to take jobs which exist — the 
innumerable jobs as handymen, 
pan-time gardeners, mothers’ 
helps and the like — the new SDP 
taxation scheme would enable 
unemployed people to augment 
their basic benefit by almost the 
full amount of any earnings, with 
no boomerang effects. 

There would be three good 
consequences: nearly all un- 
employed persons could step on to 
the earnings ladder and proceed 
up it (and with a good conscience, 
as moonlighters cannot); the pen- 
sioner or harassed family of 
average income would find it 
possible to get the paid help they

the abolition of a toially-un-

both the morale and the behaviour 
of the unhappiest section of our 
society.

Under-age pregnancy 

From Mrs Josephine Robinson 
Sir, The annual report of the 
Brook Advisory Centres said (re- 
port, September 18) that con- 
troversy over the Gillick case 
“might account for the sudden 
increase in the rate of conception 
of girls under the age of 16, from 
56 per thousand in 1983 to almost 
60 in 1984". 

But the Appeal Court ruling, 
that contraceptives must not be 
precribed to under-age girls with- 
out parental consent, was given in 
December, 1984, overturning the 
earlier ruling in favour of prescrip- 
tion. That ruling could not have 
affected the figures for that year. . 

In fact, the Office' of Population 
Census and. Surveys figures show 
that “between 1981 and 1983 


conception rates for giris aged 14, 
1 5 and 1 6 increased by 23 per cent, 
14 per cent and 3 per cent 
respectively" (OPCS Monitor, 
December, 1985). 

Would it not be beneficial if sex 
education classes taught that sex is 
for marriage, and that early sexual 
activity is dangerous, rather than 
contraceptive techniques which 
sometimes fail, are often harmful 
and are always expensive to the 
community in terms of the phys- 
ical and moral wellbeing of young 
boys and girls?

Degree proposal 

From Mr M. R. G. SpiJler 
Sir, It is always a compliment to 
those of us leaching north of the 
border when an educational 
improvement proposed south of it 
turns' out to be what Scots have 
been doing for years. John 
Ashworth's proposals (September 
17) for a two-year pass degree 
followed by a two-year honours 
degree correspond very closely to 
most Scots universities’ practice. 

We stipulate two years of gen- 
eral study, after which the student 
can take two years of honours 
study, with the proviso that the 
general course must contain suf- 
ficient of the intended honours 
subjects to test inclination and 
aptitude. Because of this overlap, 
only one degree is awarded for 
four years' study. 


The student who remains at the 
general level must take a third year 
of study to gain a pass degree 
(Scots “ordinary degree”). Here 
we diverge from John Ashworth, 
but perhaps if Scots students spent 
as much time as their English 
fellows in sixth form, two years of 
genera] study might be adequate in 
Scotland too. 

We find that two years of 
general study gives both time and 
stimulus to both school and 
mature entrants to test the width 
of the pool before committing 
themselves to its depths. 

Yours faithfully.

Highway justice 

From Dr Mayer Hillman 
Sir. No wonder transport policy is 
so distorted when the con- 
ventional wisdom, as contained in 
your editorial “Highway justice” 
(September 1 1) is lhai “We are 
almost all motorists now". 

The most up-to-date figures 
from the Department of T ransport 
show that only half the adult 
population, including less than 
one in five of women pensioners, 
hold a car licence — the main 
prerequisite for classification as a 
motorist. In addition, of course, 
no one under the age of 1 7 years 
holds one. 

. Thus, in fact only a third of us 
are motorists now. 


Yours faithfully.

ance.

Nurses’ role 

From Mrs S Watts 
Sir. Jill Sherman> anide-(Septera- 
ber 9), “Nursing in crisis", cor- 
rectly points out the problems and 
pitfalls facing student nurse train- 
ing. 

1. and those of my era, were 
trained as practical nurses wife 
practical skills, seeing our patients 
as “number one”, and to manage 
the -paperwork with the ■ little 
business skills which were .taught 
at nutsing school. 

Since the Griffiths report the 
trend has been to turn us all into 
super-managers. Gone is the bed- 
side nutting and all the true 
reasons for our dedication to the 
profession. 

Now we sn in meetings, attend 
study days, manage domestics, 
stores, pharmacy levels, budget- 
ing. voluntary workers and teach-' 
ing of all new members of staff as 
well as-lhe day to day running of 
our units/ - * 

IjMedict the introduction of two 
managerial levels. One who man- 
ages only, never seeing or speaking 
to the patients, the other getting on 
with ihe ample enjoyment of 
caring for people as we have 
always doiie in the past-

Oxygen and climbing 

From Professor J. B. West 
Sir, I must respond to Dr Holt's 
reference (September 10) to the 
work of the American Medical 
Research Expedition to Everest as 
justifying climbs to great altitudes 
without oxygen. 

In fact, our expedition 
documented, the extreme oxygen 
deprivation which occurs under, 
these conditions and we even 
found evidence of residual brain 
damage in returning climbers. 
Unfortunately there is insufficient 
awareness of the dangers of Hima- 
layan climbing without oxygen. 
Yours faithfully,

Christian merit of 
twinning towns 

From Mr Harry Dixon and Mr 
Douglas Butterfield 
Sir. Your correspondent. Major R. 
J. Wade (September 19). suggests 
several benefits which might ac- 
crue from twinning with Third 
World communities. Our experi- 
ence richly confirms this. 

The Christian communities in 
Beaconsfield and Penn. 
Buckinghamshire, have been 
linked since March. 1 985. as equal 
partners with Bungoma. Kenya, 
near the Uganda border. Already 
we. have exchanged visits which 
have been deeply rewarding and as 
the result of the recent visit of 1 7 
young Bungomans. we now see 
ourselves in somewhat sharper 
relief. 

The planning of a visit next year 
by our young people to Kenya is 
under wav and the scope for 
mutual enrichment appears virtu- 
ally unlimited. The sharing of 
culture and faith and investment 
in spiritual resources is seen as of 
greatest value. We also see the 
possibilities of both sending peo- 
ple of vocational skills and of 
receiving similarly skilled and 
other young people in due course. 
Yours sincerely, 

HARRY DIXON, 

DOUGLAS BUTTERFIELD. 

63 Wanleion Road. 

Beaconsfield. Buckinghamshire. 

From Ms Jane Knight 
Sir. Major R. J. Wade will be 
pleased to know that at least 100 
t winnings/linkings with Third 
World towns exist already. Marl- 
borough has a thriving friendship 
link with Gunjur in nie Gambia. 
Tiverton is twinned with Kabale 
in Uganda. Barnes wiib 
Mallapanahallv in Bangalore. In- 
dia; and if Major Wade visits 
Oxford he will no doubt be glad to 
note the placard on the outskirts of 
tiie city stating, “Twinned with 
Bonn, Leiden, and Leon 
(Nicaragua)”. 

The United Kingdom One 
World Linking Association, 
supporting and representing such 
links, has produced a handbook 
on how to link with communities 
in developing countries. 

In addition, a number of Euro- 
pean local authorities have issued 
the Cologne Appeal, calling for a 
greater involvement, in conjunc- 
tion with experienced develop- 
ment groups, in working for a 
more just relationship with the 
Third World. 

Yours sincerely. 

JANE KNIGHT, 

Towns and Development Officer, 
Oxfam» 

231 High Street, 

Erdington. Birmingham. 

From Mr John Gudgeon 
Sir, Major Wade's suggestion is 
rather impractical. The essence of 
twinning is personal contact 

We are twinned with Civray, in 
central France. This year my son 
and I have been over there for a 
few days with our local brass band, 
the Civray Orchestra have been 
over here and we have had a 
family of four staying with us. 

The entente between our towns 
is in my view due entirely to the 
close personal contacts and many 
warm friendships established over 
the years. Frankly, it is difficult to 
see twinning working with coun- 
tries far across the seas, except at 
very great cost. 

Yours sincerely, 

JOHN GUDGEON,

Theological colleges 

From Mr .Marcus Tanner 
Sir, How lucky Nicholas Bradbury 
(September 1 1 ) is to live in such a 
brave new world of open-minded 
Anglicans, whose generous aims of 
humanising the culture of a selfish 
worid have not been obscured by 
narrow dogmatism and party alle- 
giance. 

I attended a theological college 
more in the mould of those 
described by Gifford Longley. a 
“party” institution, dedicated 
first, of course, to the kingdom of 
God. and secondly to the easing 
into the Anglican parish system of 
evangelical Christians who were 
spiritually closer to the Southern 
Baptist Convention than to the 
Church of England. 

My college; moreover, was 
more typical than Mr Bradbury's. 
For out of 14 colleges of residen- 
tial training for Church of England 
ministry, six belong to the 
evangelical party and three to the 
.Anglo-Catholic, leaving a mere 
five to hold the middle ground so 
beloved of the older generation of 
Anglican parsons. 

Whatever direction, or rather 
directions, that the Church of 
England and its warring factions 
take, they will not be towards the 
sunny uplands of broad-church 
sentiment, ringingly defended by 
Mr-Bradbury. . 

He and bis small army of liberal 
Anglicans, so thickly represented 
in ihe higher echelons of the 
Church and so thinly in the lower, 
are whistling in the dark. 

I remain, yours sincerely, 

MARCUS TANNER.

Nuclear safety 

From Dr R. J. Butcher 
Sir. In view of the various claims 
over nuclear safely, a very simple 
argument deserves some atten- 
tion. Around 300 reactors are now 
in operation and there have been 
two serious accidents in approxi- 
mately 4.000 reactor-years. Mak- 
ing the sweeping assumption that 
this sparse data will be a good 
predictor of future events, simply 
divide 4.000 by two and ihen by 
300 to show that we can expect 
one serious accident about every. 


seven years. 

There Is obviously a large 
discrepancy from figures quoted 
by nuclear engineers, but their 
estimate musi be based on design 
technology while it apoears that 
the accidents have been caused by 
human errors. Your readers might 
like io ponder the obvious parallel 
with driving. 

Yours etc.

ON THIS DAY 


SEPTEMBER 23 1944 
The author of this article was 
Jerome ("Jerry ") Caminada ( 1911 s 
J98d), who served The Times for 
nearly 50 years. He escaped in 1943 
from German internment in the 
civilian camp of Tosf bci 
. Gleiuiitzand. After a hazardous 
journey he reached Romania, where 
he was again interned. He ires 
released in 1944 when the Russians 
occupied Bucharest 


A MEMORY OF 
BOULOGNE 

Tbe liberation of Boulogne 
awakens vivid memories of the 
capture of this Channel port by the 
Germans just over four years ago. 

I had left Brussels on a bicycle, 
and by way of Lille reached Arras 
on Sunday, May 19. 1940, and the 
town had been shattered by bombs 
that afternoon. I entered the 
burning and deserted streets in a 
hideous dusk. I had a companion 
cyclist, and we slepr that night in 
coffins under the great church. 
Next morning his bicycle was gone, 
stolen We finished the journey 
on foot and by riding on the backs 
of passing cars, and entered Bou- 
logne on Wednesday, May 22. 

A British destroyer lay in port, 
taking off mainly women and 
children. A crowd was besieging a 
building in the town where British 
consular officials were still issuing 
visas to travel to England. In the 
middle of the afternoon German 
bombers appeared. The destroyer 
sailed for England. We were still 
ashore. We did not worry- There 

would be other ships, we were 
informed; and we thought so too. 

Friday morning came, and the 
town was quiet. The rumour 
started that the Germans had been 
pushed back 30 miles; we were 
overjoyed. Then a solitary British 
soldier appeared from nowhere and 
told us that the British forces had 
retired towards Calais. There was 
no sign of Germans in the town. 
What could the situation be? Wc 
did not know, but within our little 
fort the situation was only too clear 
- food stocks low and. worse, no 
water or sanitation of any kind. We 
knew there was a French hospital 
near, and two of us decided to try to 
find it to obtain disinfectants and 
any other help available. 

My companion was an ex-service 
man of the last war. and had a cool 
head on his shoulders. Our only 
protection was a tin hat for each of 
us. One realizes now how ludicrous 
it was to set out in that fashion, but 
we passed unharmed. At the third 
comer 1 looked down the road, and 
pulled my companion by the sleeve. 
“Look!”. I said. “A tank!” “Yes.” he 
answered, “and it's not a French 
one either!” We passed out of view 
of it. What nationality could it be? 
British. I fondly hoped. The next 
comer, where the hospital stood, 
gave the answer. As we came from 
behind the comer building a hail of 
bullets spattered round us. I just 
had time to glimpse another tank 
down the road, and a German 
standing, legs apart, with .his 
weapon in the crook of his arm. I 
bolted back behind the building. 
My companion seemed to have 
disappeared. 

1 crouched against the wall. 
From out of a basement about 20 
yards away came a small civilian, 
and began to creep towards me. He 
drew alongside, took a look, and 
said in French, “What are you 
doing?” at the same time taking 
out a small revolver and pressing it 
against my side. An awkward 
moment. If I declared my national- 
ity and he was a fifth columnist, 
that would probably be fatal; if he 
was a loyal Frenchman he might 
easily Lake me for a German, with 
the same result. I said. “Anglais,” 
and a smile of disbelief spread over 
his face. He motioned towards the 
hospital. In fall view of the 
Germans, who mercifully this time 
did not fire, we crossed the street to 
the swing glass doors of the 
hospital. As we opened the doors 
one of the French soldiers who had 
been watching the scene took off 
his helmet and bit me over the 
head. 

When I recovered a few minutes 
later the commandant of the 
hospital was making apologies to 
my companion, who had dived into 
the hospital doors when we were 
first fired on, and the impetuous 
soldier was being marched away 
under arrest ... 

OUR FIRST GERMANS 

That night two other men and I 
decided to make off if we could. But 
in the morning, as we were 
preparing to depart, the Germans 
entered, and took all men under 45 
into their custody ... We were 
taken to field headquarters, and 
made to stand outside in the rain 
while we watched three bull- 
necked officers enjoying French 
delicacies and wine. Finally we 
were taken inside and given a 
soldier’s meal, from a pot filled 
with meat, as we observed to our 
surprise. 

Next day we began a long 
journey by ambulance, car, and bus 
to Aachen. From there we were 
sent by train to Berlin. 


Identity crisis 

From the Reverend M H. Burden 
Sir, It may be uue that women, as 
Mr Kemp observes (September 
16). do not like the title "spinster" 
as a description of their 
"condition" in the marriage reg- 
ister. One woman in this parish, 
asked to fill out a form requesting 
details, wrote “NOT pregnant". 
Yours sincerelv.

From Mrs Jessica Thompson 
Sir. Modern young brides are 
perhaps not so modern. The 
character Lydia Languish in 
Sheridan's The Rivals (first per- 
formed at Coveni Garden in 1 775) 
exclaims: “Oh that 1 should live to 
hear myself called spinster!"

Sale Room 


Castle ‘hat stand 9 
goes for £59,400 


The first day of Christies* 
sale of the contehts'of Callafy 
Castle, Northumberland, got 
off to a flying start, and 
realized a total of£611.1I0. 

The red and white striped 
marquee was crowded with 
prospective purchasers eager 
to compete tor some of the 
treasures. 

The highest price paid to 
date is £59,400 for a pair of 
Regency mahogany hall 
benches of the finest quality. 
These far exceeded Christies’ 
estimate of £10,000-£ 15,000. 

Major Simon Browne, aged

Bifocals for missiles 


By Keitti Hiodley 


A. heat-seeking missile ca- 
pable of shooting dorm aircraft 
in the face of decoy flares is 
likely to emerge from the 
development of a new infra-red 
detector in the United States. 
The hardware is a western idea 
hot the fundamental research 
behind ithPMhh. 

Briourose Technology, * re- 
search and development com- 
pany ii Baltimore, has been 
lookiim again at the detection of 
aircraft asing the heat from 
engine exhaust gases. Many 
western missiles, sack as the 
Sidewinder, ase infra-red to find 
tugets, hot in recent 
aircraft have escaped by i 

tag a shower of bright flans. 
Faced with many heat sources, 
mtariks simply go for one and 
usually hit a flare. 

The problem could be solved 
with an infra-red detector that

After war service in naval 
intelligence between 1941 ana 
1945, he moved to Cardiff, 
where ; he held a number of 
important administrative 
posts. 

From .1945 to 1963.he was 
secretary to the Council of the 
University of Wales, secretary 
to the Board of Celtic Studies, 
and secretary to the Universe 
'ty Press Board. In this last 
capacity be was responsible 

for a marked improvement in 

the quality ■ of Welsh book 
production, as well as for foe 
publication of many scholarly 
volumes. 

« Id 1963, be was appointed 
to succeed Sir Ben Bowen 
Thomas as permanent secre- 
tary to the Welsh Department 
of the Ministry of Education, 
which became the Welsh De- 
partment of the DES. From 
this post he retired in 1969. 
But he remained extremely 


the state, unaccountably. 
Jailed to honour him, he was 
bon LLD of Wales and 


an 


PhD of Manchester. . 

Short of stature, with gingw 
hair that never turned white; 
he was a man of intense 
vitality. Though a very mod- 
est drinker, he was no pnwe or 
killjoy. He loved music, art 
and gardening. 

His temper was most equa- 
ble. At a turbulent committee 
meeting he would hold his 
peace until the end. and then 
quietly intervene to bring 
order out of chaos. 

In politics be was left ot 
centre. Towards Welsh politi- 
cal devolution his attitude was 
distinctly wary, though he felt 
that the administrative scope 
of the Welsh Office might well 
be extended. . , 

In 1940. he married a 
colleague at Manchester, Mar- 
garet Dunlop, who died in 
1982. They had no children.

The Hon Leslie Harry Er- 
nest Bury, CMG, former Aus-

Minister for Foreign Affairs, 
died on September 7, at the 
age of 71 

A controversial figure, be 
was twice dismissed from 
governments in which he was 
serving: by Sir Robert Men- 
zies m 1962, ahd by Sir 
William McMahon in 1971. 

On the first occasion he was 
out of step with his colleagues 
on the issue of Britain’s appli- 
cation to join file Common 
Market, which he openly fa- 
voured. In 1971, while hold- 
ing the foreign affairs 
portfolio, he opposed Presi- 
dent Nixon's meeting with 
Chou. En-lai, which he de- 
scribed as contrary to the 
interests of Australia. 

Born in England on Febru- 
ary 25, 1913, he graduated in 
economics and law from 
Queens' College, Cambridge, 
before settling in Australia m 
1935, where he worked first 
for the Bank of New South 
Wales; After war service in ‘ 
radar, he became a civil 
servant on the economic side 
of foreign, affairs, and later a

In 1958, he entered Federal 
politics as Liberal member for 
a constituency in New South 
Wales, which he represented 
for 18 years. From 1961, until 
his first dismissal the follow- 
ing year, he was Air Minister. 

He was brought back in 
1963 as Minister for Housing, 
and from 1966 to 1969 served 
as Minister for Labour and 
National Service. In the latter 
year he was appointed Trea- 
surer, and held the post for 
two years, before his transfer 
to the Ministry for Foreign 
Affairs, where he lasted only a 
few months. 

In 1967, when the then 
tnime minister. Harold Holt, 
was drowned, he had been one 
of . three candidates for the 
succession, but lost to Sir John 
Gorton, who in turn was 
succeeded by McMahon in 
1971. 

Bury was a keen amateur 
carpenter, and much enjoyed 
walking in Ihe Snowy 
Mountains. 

His wife; formerly Anne 
WeigaU, survives him with 
thdrfour sons. 


ROSAMOND GILDER 


Rosamond Gilder, who 
died on September 5. at the 
age of 95, exercised a benefi- 
cent influence on American 
theatre for over 20 years, as 
dramatic critic and later editor 
of Theatre Arts Monthly, the 
outstanding magazine of its 
day. 

. She was born in New York, 
on July 7, 1891, the daughter 
ofRichard Watson Gilder, the 
celebrated editor, in the 1 890s, 
of 77re Century Magazine. 

In 1924,-sbe became drama 
critic of Theatre Arts Monthly, 
taking over as editor in 1946. 
Her monthly report on Broad- 
way theatre remains a valu- 
able record of productions and 
contains ■ much astute 
criticism. 

. Bui in 1948, unable to come 
to terms with a more commer- 
cial- approach to theatre, ush- 
ered in by a new proprietor, 
she left the magazine. The 
threat to the theatre on both 
sides of the Atlantic, from the 
growth of uncontrolled com- 
mercialism. was a continuing 
theme with her. 

She was closely associated, 
in '1935, with the creation of 
the American National The- 
atre and Academy, a forerun- 
ner of the National Drama 
Company, lata- housed at- the 
Lincoln Centre. She was also a 
director of the Playwrights’ 


Bureau of the Federal Theatre 
Project under Roosevelt's 
New Deal 

In 1948, she was one of the 
founders of the International 
Theatre Institute at its incep- 
tion in Prague - undo- the 
chairmanship of J. B. Priest- 
ley. She was international 
president of the ITI from 1963 
to 1967, and first president of 
its US centre from 1968 until 
her death/ 

A Benjamin Franklin Fel- 
low of the Royal Society of 
Arts, she was also an honorary 
member of both the New York 
Drama Critics' Circle and the 
British Critics’ Circle, and the 
holder of many international 
decorations. 

Besides theatre Collections 
in Libraries and Museums, 
written with George Freedley, 
her John Gielgud's Hamlet 


(1937) is a perennially valu- 

>f acting. 


able study of acting. 

. Rosamond Grkler had cour- 
usy, humour and a generosity 
of mind with which she could 
handle people of every politi- 
cal persuasion at international 
meetings. Visitors who en- 
joyed the hospitality- of her 
beautiful home in old New 
York will long cherish- the 
memory of her En gireh rpa$ 
laced with stimulating 
conversation.

have been surprising if young 
Alberto had settled down to be a 
painter very much in tbe tradition 
of his talented lather Giovanni and 
his even more talented cousin 
Augusta: the skill with Pointilliste 
colour and the Post-Impressionist 
handling of paint is already there. 
But then he was hit by waves of 
more modern influence, and went 
through a Primitivist phase, a 
period of near-Absiractioriand a

The familiar pared-down, match- 


i In the 20 years since his death, 
Alberto Giacometti has been taken 
rather for granted. A modern clas- 
sic, of course, but we have not had 
occasion to bother our heads much 
more on the subject If we did. it was 
probably to dismiss him without 
further , examination as a sort of 
ascetic's Chagall someone who 
settled into his formula, and settled 
for endless repetition of it until 
even the least artistically inclined 
could recognize it and accept his 
work as pan of the decoration. This 
year there has been a new stir, 
mainly as a result of James Lord's 
brilliant biography (not really 
controversial, despite all the fuss, 
though obviously Lord says things - 
some of the Giacometti ti rcle would 
rather have left; unsaid), .and now 
the Fondation Pierre Gianadda in — 
Martigny comes up with the defin- 
itive retrospective (until November • 
2) to assist any new thoughts we 
may have with new evidence. 

The show is definitive because it 
is so wisely selected and so 
admirably displayed in the Fon- 


stick figures did not appear until 
after the Second World war. alone 


after the Second World war, along 
with the portrait paintings which 
are all done head-on and are really 
much more drawings on canvas 
than paintings in the normal sense 
of the term. Occasional!)' the sculp- 
tures are splendidly vivid — the 
variations on the- theme; of the ~ 
walking man. for instance"— and' 
some of the portrait heads, particu- 
larly of Alberto's sculptor brother 
and assistant Diego, are striking. 
But I find it hard not to lose 
enthusiasm as the virtual rep- 
etitions pile up. Most recent Giaco- 
metti shows, by concentrating 
almost exclusively on this phase 
and the sweepings of the studio, 
have done the artist a disservice. . 


This son of immaculately or- 
ganized show, with its solidly 
documented and elegantly pro- 
duced catalogues and its comforting 
air of no-expenses pared, is just 
what the major Swiss foundations 
are best equipped to do — probably 
better than anyone else. Where else 
but in circumstances of this kind 
could one expea to find something 
like the two current offerings at the 
Villa Favoriia. Lugano, the home of 
the Thyssen-Bornemisza Collec- 
tion? Geraldine Norman has al- 
ready described in these pages the 
mechanics by which the Baron 
Tbyssen managed to set up the 
major cultural exchange which has 
„ brought the Gold. and Sflver Xrea- 
sures- from . the Hermitage to 
Switzerland until November 2, but 
the arrangement of the other show 
at the Villa. Goya in Spanish

ber 15 (or possibly longer if plans to 
borrow the Prado's latest much- 
publicized acquisition materialize), 
can hardly have been less complex.

Nor. it seems; could’ you see as

of the pieces on show have been in

But the Momigny show-snakes:

In the event both the shows are 
breath-taking. The Hermitage show 
combines in decent proportions The 
pleasures of simply- gawping at 
mind-boggling amounts of precious 
metal and those, slightly more 
ratified, of observing exquisite de- - 
sign and faultless workmanship 
which would have their effect even 
if the materials used were in 
themselves worthless. Indeed, some 
of the most extraordinary pieces in 
the collection, from the artistic 
point of view, are (hose in Tula- '

Many of the Goyas are as little 
known to the general public. About 
a third of this show was included in 
the major Goya exhibition in 
Brussels at the end of last year, but 
much of the rest has seldom if ever 
been on public display since it was 
painted — most of the works 
included are in fact still in the 
collections for which they were first 
designed. Perhaps the show does 
not throw any blinding new light on 
Goya, but for such a painter any 
additional evidence is to be cher- 
ished and carefully scrutinized.

Claude Monet Nymph&is, at the 
Kunstmuseum, Basel, until October

bling 64 paintings from Monet's last 
30 years, some of them -very large 
. indeed, like the panoramic canvases 
designed for the French state but 
not finally -included in the installa- 
tion downstairs at the Oran gene, is 
quite staggering. But the results writ 
justify the effort. Never before have 
we been able to obtain such a vivid 
picture of Monet's creative pro- 
cesses during those last years when 
he painted his house and garden at

fertile influence on Abstract Ex-

Saturday afternoon's perfor- 
mance of The Snow Queen 
brought a new cast in the. 
leading roles: the third team to 
dance them. I thought Sandra 
Madgwick the best Gerda we 
have seen so far her excep- 
tionally dear, . strong tech- 
nique enables her to make the 
most of the solos, while her 
bright, candid personality 
suits the character of the 
ingenuous girl who proves fo 
have an unexpected core of 
determination. 

It is always a pleasure to see 
the assurance and accuracy of 
her dancing, and in this 
instance the effect is to bring 
warmth and life to a role that 
has previously seemed under- 
written. Madgwick manages a 
touching tearfulness in the 
final scene when she tries 
vainly to rescue her doomed 
lover. 

This part was played by Iain 
Webb, and the pair of them 
are nicely matched in the 
affection they suggest.- Webb 
brings a very light, easy qual- 
ity to his dancing. One might 
wish for a slightly sharper, 
more controlled outline dur- 
ing his flying leaps, but he 
shows an assured style, and his 
acting is particularly. convinc- 
ing when the' Snow- Queen's 
wolves wound him in th.e eye 
and heart with slivers of her 
magic mirror. 

Chenca Williams was the 
new Snow Queen. She is 
especially successful in con- 
veying the icy cruelty of the 
character, her acting carried 
by bold, clear gestures. Vin- 
cent Redmon, also new as her 
assistant, the White Dwarf, 
dances with buoyant and nim- 
ble energy but cannot quite 
overcome a degree of fa- 
cetiousness in some of the 
choreography he is given.

in the choice./of these .two 
pieces, that the company is 
keen to encourage its audience 
towards the higher delights: a 
rather speedy development is 
being made from the previous 
staple of only the most popu- 
lar operas, and there is even 
talk of new commissions. But 
the development is not un- 
grounded. It has support from 
the professionalism of the 
company, as -well as from the 
talents of local singers in many 
minor and some more im- 
portant roles; 

Falstaff' was produced with 
great liveliness by Christopher 
Renshaw, even if some of the 
movement seemed slightly 
hysterical or manufactured: a 
hedge maze for the second 
scene had little purpose be- 
yond that of making the merry 
wives trip about a good deal 
However, there was no 
impediment to Claude Cor- 
beil's presenting of a highly 
characterful Sir John, almost a

weirdness of spirit and des- 
perately intense misgmdcd- 
ness. In vocal r quahty^*wd 
articulation,- ttkvKewas very 
suitably more . neurotic' than 
booming. 

Among others In the cast, 
the young Irish soprano Mary 
Hegarty offered a winningly 
bright and beautiful Nanetta, 
and Helen Walker as her 
mother made intelligent use of 
a creamy voice and acted with 
nice fussiness. The Ulster 
Orchestra were conducted tfy 
Kenneth Montgomery, artistic 
director of the company, in a 
warm, affectionate and strong- 
ly urged elucidation of the 
score, and their contribution 
was also integral to tbe success 
of the Ariadne. 

Here the producer was 
Seamus McGrenera, who 
placed the opera in the 18th 
century (though unnecessarily 
in Paris) and thereby allowed 
Strauss's ironic historidsm td 
flower. The handling ofthe 
Prologue was straightforward, 
if never less than purposeful, 
but the main act went even' 
further than fashion in bring- 
ing the disparate: casts to- 
gether. It was a nice touch to 
have the Composer, still en- 
thralled, come forward to 
Zerbinetta during her aria. But 
perhaps the most effective 
notion was that of pairing off 
the nymphs and the lesser 
comedians, all of whom re- 
mained as a third audience for 
the finale, and so gave a 
usefully homely ambience to 
hs rhetoric. 

Sung in English, Strauss will 
surely have been endeared to 
Belfast (it was unwise to give 
Falstaff in the original, es- 
pecially when none of the 
singers was Italian). An ex- 
cellent cast will also have 
helped. Eiddwen Harrhy gave 
everything in an urgent but 
also urgently lyrical perfor- 
mance as tbe Composer, 
becoming harsh only at the 
very end of tbe Prologue. Rita 
Cuflis sang with monumental 
grace as Ariadne, and Kenneth 
WooUam showed his cus- 
tomary force of utterance as 
Bacchus. Nan Christie pro- 
vided her charming Zerbi- 
netta, and Geoffrey Dolton 
was a likeably direct Harle- 
quin. He and his harlequinade 
colleagues all behaved with 
brave frolicsomeness in what 
was, for them, a distinctly 
gymnastic production. They 
were also beautifully dressed 
in pastel colours by Tim Reed, 
the designer of both produc- 
tions (his only error was the 
Falstaff tree). There are fur- 
ther performances this week-

The comedy is very well 
handled — including a delight- 
fully bawdy play scene and a 
morbidly successful grave-dig-

ultimately, the speed and high

The play's deeper. scenes are 
played with, lurid -melodrama 
and sentimentality which, 
however -loqgue-in-cheek or 
relevant to the interpretation, 
just appear mawkish and lose 
a great deal. That said, there is 
a lucid and moving perfor- 
mance from Irene Macdougall 
as Ophelia- and a quietly 
sensitive one, from Pippa 
Sparkes as Germide, who 
gradually . grows- to ' look 
ghastly at the significance of 
the madness -around her. - 


Beethoven's Fourth Piano 
Concerto has certainly re- 
ceived more beautiful, more 
subtly-coloured - and more 
intellectually probing perfor- 
mances. But it can rarely have 
been made to sound so fiery as 
in Alicia de Lanocha's hands 
here. She is a diminutive lady 
who has been gracing the 
concert .platforms for several 
decades. In ‘ this work she 
played like a young giant. 

Perhaps she was inspired by 
the presence of her fellow 
Spaniard and long-time col- 
laborator Rafael Frfibbeck de 
Burgos on the podium. 
Fruhbeck certainly kept a tight 
ship (at least after a strangely 
unhinged opening tutti) but it 
was the- pianist'who made- all 
the naming, manly- by .her 
powerful. . . hardredged ' pas- 
sage work iiLwhich every, sfor- 
zando marking 'was turned 
imo a tJmisting.$yncopau'on. 

. The speeds 'were ordinary, 
perhaps even sluggish, and the 
dynamics were not - un usual 
(apart from a delicious wind- 
ing-down after the first-move- 
ment cadenza); so this special 
fervour was generated simply 
by the sheer, character of 
Larrocha’s articulation;: She 
also gave us two rarely-heard 
cadenzas by Reincckc. I 

believe ‘ — that were -fire- 


crackers of: virtuosic inven- 
tion; if hannonicaJJy 'tt.Utfle , 
- incongruous. ' .-.-.i'i.j. 

. fruhbeck was^rrot over- 
shadowed, for he went 7 on to 
conduct a spectacular account 
of Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite 
(1919 version). He may favour 
vivid contrasts, unexpected 
crashes (the Danse inferoale’s 
opening could not have been 
pipe for those of a nervous 
disposition) and . raw', brass 
found, but his showmanship 
is founded on solid maridanly 
values - scrupulous attention 
to markings, precise rhythmic 
definition and the mainte- 


nance of excellent orchestral 
balance. The flute ' section 
dropped a couple of rather 
noticeable clangers, but by 
and Iaige the London Sym- 
phony Orchestra responded to 
Fruhbeck’s approach with 
distinction. 

Earlier, Debussy’s Noc- 
turnes had seemed slightly too 
clear-cut and prosaic, though 
the stupendous orchestral 
cresendo in “Fetes” was done 
with considerable flair and the 
“Sirtnes” ofthe London Sym- 
phony Chorus sang securely.

Brawling boys ignore the Princess 


By Alan Hamilton 

Princess Anne, whose presidency of 
the Save The Children Fund (SCF) more 
usually ~ associates her with TAfrkan 
Earning, yesterday inspected a different 
land of nderpririleB among the com- 
foitable opulence of Somh Backmgfcam- ■ 
shire. 

The Princess visited three council 
gypsy campsites to talk to the travelling 

people and to see at first hand the fold's 

psoject which provides a mobile pre- 
school playgroup for fire children of 
itinerant families at five sites in South 
BDCklnghamshlre, traditionafly a popu- 
lar stopping place forgypsy famines. 

1 She heard complaints off ted cuadtr 
- tions and overoowding on sites rim by a 
council which has voted to reduce spm- 
mg on travelling families, and visited 


one site at Wapsey’s Wood, near Ger- 
rards Cross, where,-despite the erection 
of 16 can ran stands and tmkt blocks, 
no fannies have yet been admitted: " 

At a gypsy ste in the village of Iver 
she took coffee with the site warden, Mir 
George Davies, in his caravan. Mr 
Davies said laten “I told her there were 
no proper facilities and nothing for the 
kids except the Save The Children play- 
bos which comes to the site.” 


Thirty families live on the Iver rite, 
most of them long-term residents. Suz- 
anne Gardner, aged 12, said after meet- 
ing the Princess: “I to (d her how the site 
wasallgenny and dirty and some people 
don't have running water. She san) she 
would help ns get better conditions.* 

The playbus scheme, based oif a con- 
verted Ford Transit van, has been run by 


SCF in South Bocks since 1977 and 
costs £30,000 a year to operate, of which 
15 per cent is provided bythe local auth- 
ority' and Che rest ty the~SCF, which 
spends abort £5 millio n a year in the 
United Kingdom, 'mainly on helping 
children in deprived inner dty areas. In 
the past about one-third of SCFs 
donations were spent in Britain and 
Northern Ireland, but recent special 
appeals for famine in Africa mean a 
larger proportion is being spent abroad, 
although fund officials say British 


projects have not suffered.

dollar leaps over DM2 
on Gleneagles accord 


The dollar recovered str- 
ongly yesterday in the wake of 
the weekend meeting of the 
£EC . finance . ministers at 
Gleneagles, near Perth., 
it rose by almost 3-5 pfen- 
nigs against the marie to close 
m London at DM2.0310, 
compared with DM1.9970 on 
Friday. In overnight trading m 
the Far East and Australia, the 
dollar had risen as high as 
DM2.0750. 

The pound was pushed 
down by the dollar's sharp 
rise, closing 1.95 cents down 
at $ 1 .4570. It gained nearly 
iwo pfennigs at DM29589 but 
the sterling index fell 0.1 to 
69.5. 

The EEC finance ministers 
underlined their determina- 
tion not to submit to another 
realignment of currencies 
within the European Mone- 
tary System at their informal 
weekend, meeting. 

They also agreed on the 
undesirability of a. further 
dollar foil against other lead- 
ing currencies. The meeting 
opened the way for a small 
reduction in German interest 
fates, considered necessary to 
break the impasse between the 
United States and other coun- 
tries on the dollar. 

The unanimity of the EEC 
ministers against a further 
dollar foil was echoed in 
Japan. A senior Bank of Japan 
official said yesterday : “This 


By David Smith, Economics Correspondent 
is the time for us to get a dear Washington this week, will be 


consensus that the exchange 
rate changes that have taken 
place are sufficient or more 
than sufficient-” 

Yesterday, the dollar rose 
from 1 5235 to 1 53.50 against 
the yen. On Friday it had 
touched a post-war low of 
151.70. 

The foreign exchange mar- 
kets appear to have inter- 
preted statements from the 
Gleneagles meeting as {Mint- 
ing to concerted EEC inter- 
vention to support the dollar. 
However, the EEC ministers 
agreed on intervention only in 
the context of preventing an 
EMS realignment 

The European central banks 
were not detected in the 
market yesterday. 

One of the focuses at the 
annual meetings of the Inter- 
national Monetary Fund and 
World Bank, which start in 


on economic policy co-ordina- 
tion between the leading 
economies. 

At the world economic sum- 
mit in Tokyo in May, the 
participants agreed to the 
setting out of indicators for 
their economies, in an effort to 
attain compatibility. Officials' 
work on these indicators will 
be presented to the Group of 
Five and Group of Seven 
meetings in Washington. 

The use of the indicators, 
originally urged by the US 
Treasury Secretary, Mr James 
Baker, as a step towards semi- 
fixed or target zones for the 
major currencies, may now be 
taken up more enthusias- 
tically by the other leading 
countries at the Washington 
meetings. 

The dollar’s rise, and 
sterling’s muted recovery 
against the mark, left the 


money markets in pessimistic 
mood- There was a hardening 
in longer-term rates, with the 
12-month interbank rate ris- 
ing V5s points to 10%-lQ 11 ig per 
cent But the three-monlh 
interbank rate edged down 
slightly to 10® is - 10 3 ib per 
cenL 

Government bonds also 
fell, by up to a point at the long 
end. on disappointment that 
the pound, having followed 
the dollar down, foiled to folly 
benefit from its recovery. 

Despite the dollar's 
strength, precious metals 
continued their recent ad- 
vances with gold firing more 
than S 1 5 an ounce at one stage 
to touch a 3'h year high of 
$445.50 before running into 
profit-taking and closing at 
$438.75. Platinum was also in 
strong demand, closing about 
$25 lugher at $607.50 an 
ounce. 


Trends uncertain as indicators fall 


Both sets of leading in- 
dicators for the British econ- 
omy fell on latest available 
data, the Central Statistical 
Office said. But trends in the 
economy remain uncertain. 

The longer * index 

fell from -105.5 in July to 103.8 
in August, because of a drop in 
share .prices and a fi rming of 
interest rates. 

Until August, the index had 


risen in every month this year. 

The shorter leading Index 
feO from 96 in June to 95.7 in 
July, because of a slowdown in 
the growth of mn wmw credit, 
and a fall in new car sales. 

The coincident indicator, 
which tracks the eyefe, rose 
from 91.8 in June to 926 in 
July, because of stronger retail 
safes and higher levels of 


capacity usage in industry. 

Offi cials said that the 
longer leading index was still 
heavily influenced by share 
price movements. The co- 
incident index has shown the 
economy growing sluggishly 
since the second quarter of last 
year, although officials remain 
cautious on the question of 
whether a cyclical peak was 
reached then.

Banks due to 
reconfirm 

tunnel loan 

By Teresa Pode 

Most of the 40 banks which 
agreed to provide £5 billion in 
loans and standby credits for 
the Eurotunnel cross-Channel 
link are expected to reconfirm 
their loan commitments to- 
day, paving the way for a £200 
million international private 
share placing at : the end of 
next month.. " 

A 106-page “pathfinder 
prospectus for' the placing; 
which gives financial details 
and traffic forecasts for the 
project, is due to be published 
early next week. The placing, 
planned for July, was delayed 
because of problems over 
construction contracts. These ; 
were finally signed in August. 

The international banks 
now seem satisfied with- the - 
arrangements and-masy-ha ve— 
signed a loan memorandum 
reconfirming their willingness 1 
to provide the finance. 

The reconfirmation was 
essential for the placing. It will 

raise about £70 million from 
British institutions and a simi- 
lar amount in France. The 
remaining £60 million will be 
raised in the US, Japan and 
other European countries.

It will raise £225 million on 
the basis of five new shares for 
every six already held. The 
balance of the financing will

be through bank borrowings. 

Siebe's chief executive, Mr 
Barrie Stephens, said . the 
Robertshaw move was a key 
step in the development of his 
group. 

He said: “During the bid for 
APV we let it be known that 
we were keen to expand our 
control systems side. 


Robertshaw is a coup. The 
company is growing fast and it 
would have taken years to 
buildour own controls busi- 
ness to a similar size.” - 
Siebe sees two main benefits- 
foom a merger of the two 
businesses. There are consid- 
erable areas of both businesses 
which are complementary, 
according to Mr Stephens, and 
Robertshaw’s products will 
gain access to Siebe's inter- 
national customer base. - - 
The “proposed - acquisition 
will bis subject to approval of 
shareholders on October 13.

UK on target in trade 
talks, says Channon 

By Our City Staff 


Mr Paul Channon, Sec- 
retary of State for Trade and 
Industry, said yesterday that 
an essential British objectives 
i had been achieved under the 
agreement to launch a new 
round of world trade talks. 

It also emerod that Japan 
had accepted a final statement 
from Senor Enrique Iglesias, 
the Uruguayan chairman of 
last week’s meeting of the 
General Agreement on Tariffs 
and Trade, that points to the 
need for countries to tackle 
their trade imbalances 
through adjustments in 
macro-economic policy, ex- 
change rates, structural reform 
and trade policy. 

Mr Channon said: “This Is 
the first tune the Japanese' 


have ever signed up to a 
statement like that.” 

He added that Japan ac- 
cepted that its trade surplus 
was a big cause of imbalance 
in world trade and that its 
source went well beyond con- 
ventional trade banners. 

The new Gatt round would 
also be important in reducing 
the intense protectionist pres- 
sure in the United States, Mr 
Channon said. 

The agenda of the new 
round will also break new 
ground by attempting to re- 
duce agricultural subsidies in 
Europe, with the Common 
Agricultural . Policy, the 
United States and elsewhere, 
which has been blamed for 
global disruption of world 
markets. - 


By Richard Lander 

The London Metal Ex- 
change, still reeling from the 
shock waves of last year’s tin 
crisis, is set to undergo its' 
most fundamental structural 
shake-tip in its 109-year exis- 
tence if its members accept a 
radical package of proposals 
suggested by an outside firm 
of consultants. 

The proposals, put forward 
by Price Waterhouse, the 
1 accountants, after a four- 
montfa study of the exchangers 
management process, . would 
abolish the current board and 
committee which have been 
widely criticized for bring too 
[ large, unresponsive to mem- 
bers and having overlapping 
functions. 

The report recommends 
their replacement by a di- 
rectly-elected nine-member 
supervisory board with full 
, executive powers ..and 
responsibility for operations, 
and a partly-elected 12-mem- 
ber council which would set 
the strategy and guidelines for 
the supervisory board as well 
as providing a channel for 
external voices to be heard on 
the LME 

The report also proposes 
that a deputy chief executive 
be appointed to back, and 
eventually succeed, Mr Mi- 
chael Brown. Exchange mem- - 
bers were told of the proposals 
. yesterday by Mr Michael . 
Langdon of Price Waterhouse 
who spoke of the chance for 
“young tigers” of the LME to 
be elected to the supervisory 
board. 

He also recommended that 
a strategic plan for the 1990s 
be drawn up once the new 
structure was in place. 

Mr Jacques Lion, the LME ' 
chairman, said the changes I 
could take effect from next, 
Spring.

tial commisskm rates until 
September, 1988. The brokers 
are listed near the end of the 
TSB prospectus, bet the 
information should also be 
available from your TSB 
branch. 

According to Rowe & Pit- 
man, brokers to the issue, the 
special rates are so low that 
few of the brokers will make 
any profit from a sale. Most 
brokers wifi be happy to deal 
with yon even if you are not an 
established dient. 

You can also deal through 
your local bank, but this is 
more expensive. The banks 
normally charge a handling 
fee of around £5 on all share 
transactions — and they may 


put the deal through a broker 
charging higher commission 

You will have to give your 
chosen broker yonr acceptance 
letter. Yoa can tell him to sell 
the shares “at best” — mean- 
ing at the best price be can find 
in the market that day — or at 
a specific price. 

It you choose a specific 
price, you trill hare to wait 
nntil the market reaches your 
price, which could take days, 
or be prepared to alter the 
older if the market looks as 
though it will never get there. 

-The broker will sell “at 
best” orders the same day, 
with settlement for the follow- 
ing day. The cheque for die 
proceeds should be on its why 
to yon by post no more than 
two days after the sale, with 
the broker's commission 
charge deducted. 

The proceeds mil represent 
only the value of a share on 
which only half the issue price 
has been paid. But until the 
second 50p is payable next 
September, the share price 
will normally be quoted ou the 
basis of the first part-payment 
so scope for confusion over the 
price should be minimaL 

Once you have sold your 
shares you have no further 
obligations. It is the buyer who 
becomes responsible for mak- 
ing the second 50p part- 
paymeot next year.

First-stage Elf sale 
will raise £415m 

By Carol Ferguson 


Elf Aquitaine, the French 
state-controlled oil company, 
began a series of meetings 
yesterday designed to develop 
relationships with the UK 
financial community as part 
of - its plans for full 
privatization. 

The French government's 
67 per cent interest in Elf, held 
by Erap. the state holding 
company, will be reduced in 
two stages. Initially, Erap will 
reduce its holding to 51 per 
cent in a share -sale which will 
raise an estimated FFr4 bil- 
lion (£415 million). 

The liming of this sale has 
not been ^rnalized, but the 
company's bankers hope to 
come to the capital markets in 
the next few weeks. 

Full privatization is 
planned by 1991 after several 
other state-owned enterprises 


have been sold off. including 
Paris-Bas. 

Last month Elfs sharehold- 
ers gave the company the 
power iq. raise up to FFr10 
billion (£1.05 billion) of new 
capital by issuing equity-re- 
lated stock. In any public 
offering, overseas applicants 
will be limited to 20 per cent 
of the slock being offered. 

Commenting on the interim 
results to June 30, M Gilbert 
Rutman, the deputy chair- 
man, said the 26 per cent 
decline in sales, to FFr69 
million, was due mainly to the 
•combined downward move- 
ments of oil prices and the US 
dollar exchange rate. 

However, the group's refin- 
ing and marketing activities 
benefited, producing FFr2 bil- 
lion compared with a small 
loss last year.

• A cut in the basic rate of 
income lax below the 
Government's 25p target to 
22.5p in the pound. This 
would include a local income 
tax averaging 12.5p in place of 
the Government's proposed 
local poll tax. The top rate of 
income tax would be brought 
down from the present 60p to 
40p- 

• VAT extended to all con- 
sumer goods except housing. 

• Child benefit increased to 
£10 a week per child and a 
domestic responsibilities 
allowance of£10 a week for all 
parents not in work. 

• Pensions increased by 20 
per cent and substantial in- 
creases in other benefits. 

• National Insurance 
contributions abolished and 
replaced by a 1 0 per cent social 
security ulx and a 10 per cent 
payroll tax. 

'• A business assets tax to 
replace business rates and. 
ultimately, corporation tax. 

• Capital gains tax and 
inheritance tax abolished and 
investment income taxed only 
insofar as it is spcnL 

• A simplification of the tax 
structure: 

The package has been de- 
signed to cost roughly the 
same as the cost of the

Mr Kay was heavily critical 
of the successive failures of the 
Inland Revenue in both policy 
and administration. 

He said: “Britain is unique 
in treating tax policy as a 
Revenue rather than a Trea- 
sury function and has paid a 
heavy price.” 

He called for an indepen- 
dent chairman for the Rev- 
enue, at present chaired by Mr 
Anthony BattishilL

The LCE net will be cast

If and when locals come to

he would be disappointed if the 
proposal is stymied by what he 
calls "small groaps of 
reaction” — there wfll prob- 
ably be various incentives to 
make trading terms more 
attractive than on Iiffe. - 

Feather down the line, there 
are plans to reduce the LCE's 
dependence on soft commod- 
Ities.

: the exchange anghtihlce. . .- 

He admits that gold futures 
"are certainly a possibility,”

Pound’s poor performance 


By Michael Clark 

. . Governnienl securities ran 
into renewed selling yesterday 

J?*fcl5 c ^ lumblin B around 
£1 following another H«m») 

pplormance by the pound on 
the foreign exchanges. 

Hopes of a rally in gflts 
following the decision ofthe 
buropean Community’s bank- 
9V°. ,n £l vene and halt the 
dollar s slide against the mark 
were quickly dashed. The 
pound made up some of the 
lost ground against the marie, 
buttoned to match the dollar's 
performance, which was up 
against both its main rivals. 

Dealers appeared numbed 
by this latest shakeout in the 
gilt market. It follows hard on 
the heels of last week’s losses 

• The City's budding an- 
alysts fly out to the US next 

month for a look at the 
American operations offline " 

) Circle (op 17p at 573pk - 
RecOand (op ip at 432p) and 
PUkington (up 3p at 438p). 
Dealers are hoping the com- 
panies will have some good 
news. Bine Circle has also ar- 
ranged a seminar to meet 
top US fund managers. 

which ranged up to £2 in a 
single day. Some observers are 
now convinced that gQts have 
been Oversold and are now 
due for a rally. But lingering 
fears of a 1 per cent rise in 
bank base rates could scupper 
that 

All eyes will be firmly 
focused on this week's meet- 
ing of the Bundesbank in the 
hope that the Germans will 
relent and allow their interest 
rales to falL 

But any fears about the 
pound, or the economy, were 
being shrugged off by the. 
equity market Dealers re- 
ported a firm start after the 
weekend break helped by the 


and Carol Leonard 

winding up of a few bear 
positions. 

The momentum in share 
prices grew throughout the 
day although turnover re- 
mained low. This seemed like 
an ideal time for many brokers 
and jobbers to fill in their 
application forms for the 
forthcoming Trustee Savings 
Bank flotation. Over in the 
‘‘grey market” Cleveland 
Securities, the licensed deafer, 
was quoting a price of 98p in 
the 50p partly-paid price 

The FT index of 30 shares 
finished at its high for the day 
13.7 up at 1.282.8, while ihe 
broader based FT-SE 100 
advanced 16.7 at 1,617.1. 

Jaguar, the luxury car 
manufacturer, continued to 
enjoy institutional support 
ahead of next month's launch 
of its new XJ series saloon. 
Analysts who paid , a visit to 
the company recently were 
eleaify impressed with the 
new model which looks like 
turning into a big success. 

The new car is designed to 
compete fiercely with other 
executive saloons and the 
experts claim it could cause a 
few headaches for rivals like 
Font Audi and BMW. The 
bottom of the range moddis 
expected to retail at about 
£16,000. 

- Jaguar shares, winch also 
enjoy strong US patronage, 
were changing hands in the 
last account at 50 Ip. Yes-

United Trust & Credit, the 
financial sendees and sew

the Unlisted Securities Market 
via an introduction through 
Raphael, Zorn, the broker. 
UT&C, which also makes its

They later closed at 373p,

f COMMENT Kenneth Fleetl 


Report pinpoints need 
for LME ‘open doors’ 


figures cover the period end- 
ing June 30. 

Analysts are currently look- 
ing for pretax profits of be- 
tween £62 million and £65 
-million, but the final figure 
could be much higher. More 
. optimistic observers are now 
predicting a figure nearer £68 

- million with the lax rate 
coming down from 31 per cent 
to 23 per cent 

For the foil year, tradition- 
ally the group's strongest pe- 
riod, analysts are pitching 
their estimates at about the 
£150 million IeveL The shares 
firmed 2p to 494p. * 

Any fears in the retail sector 
about an imminent rise in 

- interest rates were quickly 
disguised following- a bumper 

. set of' interim figures from 
Freemans, the mail order 
company. 

Pretax profits for the period 


to August 9. grew from £1 1.86 
million to £15.12 million on 
safes up from £208.6 million 
to £288.58 million. 

The price responded with a 
rise of 6p to 468p. It also 
attracted support for the other 
big mail order groups. Empire 
Stores rose.4p to 188p and 
Great Universal Stores ‘A’ 
lOp to £10.80. 

Elsewhere. Burton ad- 
. vanced 4p to 304p, Boots 3p to 
224p,~ Dixons 4p to 366p, 
Marks and Spencer 3p to 
203p and Ratners 3p to 234p. 

Meanwhile, Mr Ron 
Brieriey's International Equity 
Pacific Securities has been 
buying more shares in 
Ultramar. EEP now speaks for 

• Amstrad, the computer 
company led by Mr Alan 
Sugar, is poised to join the list 
of 100 top companies thrift 
comprise the FT-SE index. 
Bond an «i Unigate could also 
be joining — with British & 
Commonwealth Shipping, 
BICC and possibily 
Smiths Industries moving out 
to make room for them. 

36.2 million shares, or 13.2 
per cent of the equity. 

This has increased specula- 
tion that the New Zealand 
entrepreneur is getting ready 
to make a bid for the rest. 
Ultramar enjoyed a 5p rise to 
143p. 

The rest ofthe oil sector had 
some bright spots with BP up 
15p at 668p, Shell lOp at 903p 
ana Ranger Oil 15p at 273p. 

Siebe, ihe electronics group, 
crashed a hefty 85p to 805p 
within minutes of unveiling a 
£225 million rights issue, to 
finance a US acquisition. The 
five-for-six cash calf will al- 
most double the company’s 
capitalization from £333 mil- 
lion to £558 million. 

Mr T Boone Pickens, the 
Texan businessman who is 
said to have been running his 
slide rule over IC Gas. arrives 
in London later today. Shares 
in the company, which rose 
steadily throughout last week 
on bid speculation, finned a 
further couple of pence to 
490p. 

Better-than-expecled results 
from Trinity International, the 
newspaper and packaging 
company which publishes the 
Liverpool Daily Post and 
Echo, lifted its shares 22p to 
440p. 

The final £1 1 1 million offer 
document from BET for HAT 
Group was despatched 
yesterday.with BET’S shares 
putting on 5p to 393p. increas- 
ing the value of their bid still 
further. HAT’S shares were 
stagnant at !38p. The offer 
closes on Thursday. 

Fisons, the pharmaceutical 
and agricultural products 
group, gained I3p to 576p as 
the market digested its ac- 
quisition of an American re- 
search company for £26 
million. 


The Price Waterhouse report outlin- 
ing restructuring psoposals for the 
London Metal Exchange has allowed 
exchange members to pour forth their 
feelings about their "current manage- 
ment under a cloak of anonymity. 

They have taken full advantage of 
their opportunity: tjhe list of com- 
plaints is a strong indictment of an 
institution that appea is to have lost its 
way and in which ned ther insiders nor 
outsiders have much' confidence. 

Among the charge? are that none of 
the LMFs three msan bodies — the 
committee, board and secretariat — 
works as it should; that the exchange 
does not know whece it is going; and 
that relationships with the outside 
world have been damaged by the tin 
crisis and the implications of the 
City’s new supervisory structure. 

The report advocates that much of 
the old should be swept away if the 
LME is to survive .and prosper into 
the 21st century. The responsibility 
for this change — some will say it 
would first involve a lightning trip 
through the second half of the 20th 
century — would fall largely to 
whichever “young : tiger” chairs the 
proposed supervisory’ board, and to 
Michael Brown, Che current chief 
executive. Mr Brown would enjoy the 
luxury of a deputy whom he could 
groom for succession, and a more 
efficient secretariat. 

Price Waterhouse has also high- 
lighted the need for the LME to open 


its doors to the outside world. Direct 
membership for overseas firms would 
merely acknowledge the anomalies of 
the current situation where 1 6 of the 
21 ring-dealing members are con- 
trolled from abroad. The spaces set 
aside on the new council for lay 
representatives respond to the call of 
the Financial Services Bill. 

What the Price Waterhouse report 
bas done, with some tact, is to drive 
home the brutal fact that the LME. for 
all the uniqueness of its dealing 
system, is just another commodity 
exchange which will have to fight to 
survive against other markets here 
and abroad, looking at new contracts, 
trawling for new members and selling 
itself — to its own membership, 
potential clients and the powers that 
be. . , 

It would be fining if the revised 
status accorded to the LME by the 
report was to be formally recognized 
by a move to Commodity Quay to 
join the London Commodity Ex- 
change. another market which has had 
to tackle many of the same problems 
as the LME. 

The study deplores the level to 
which the LME has fallen, but a 
measure of praise is due to the present 
guardians of the exchange. Firstly, for 
admitting that something was awry 
and commissioning the report; sec- 
ondly for informally supporting pro- 
posals which effectively mean 
dismissing themselves. 


Too much money goes west 


Fund managers aie feeling a liule 
miffed at the weigfcn of money being 
raised in London for instant spending 
on the other side ofthe Atlantic. 

Yesterday's £225 million rights 
issue by the Siebe Group for a US ac- 
quisition — the latqst in a lengthy line 
— pushes the reamt total of cash 
heading west to near £1,500 million, 
which is enough tq> take up the TSB 
issue. 

The Prudential Corporation, Boots, 
Smith & Nephew, Dee Corporation, 
Beazer and Sedgwick are some of the 
bigger companies involved in recent 
cash raising exercises. The normal 
trickle has become, if not a flood, cer- 
tainly a steady outflow. At this rate, 
fund managers ma.y feel that they are 
having decisions on the geographical 
distribution of tfeeir portfolios pre- 
empted by the boajrds of companies in 
which their funds are invested. 

A second gnmfble is that some of 
the fund raising is: extremely large in 
relation to the companies which are 
carrying them out. C H Beazer plans 
to finance the putrehase of a Texas 
conduction company by a two-for- 
three rights issue.; 

Siebe's own call to shareholders is 
much more demarnding — a five— for 
six rights issue plats bank borrowings 
that will more than double the group's 
capital employed. Even the most 
venerable City obt servers find it hard 
to recall such a staff exercise. 


Despite the grumblings Siebe's 
ebullient chief executive. Barrie Ste- 
phens, will get his cash, as will Brian 
Beazer. 

Since 1 981 Siebe's market 
capitalization has expanded by leaps 
and bounds, from less than £20 
million to more than £300 million; 
and more important, Stephens has 
been able to demonstrate amply that 
this has been much more than 
expansion for its own sake. Earnings 
per share have trebled over the past 
five years, too. 

Even the stretching of Siebe's 
balance sheet (gearing rises to more 
than 1 10 per cent) will be regarded as 
passable. It will reduce to around 70 
per cent inside a year, helped by the 
£49 million raised by the disposal of 
Siebe's holding in APV. 

Also, Robertshaw's assets are much 
undervalued and Siebe will be re- 
appraising the worth of inventories, 
plant, machinery and balance sheet 
items over the coming months. And 
after the major successes Stephens has 
scored with his last five sizeable 
acquisitions, he deserves to be given 
the benefit of the doubt 

Brian Beazer also has an impressive 
record. Investment managers who 
have made exceptional profits from 
backing such men are finding it 
difficult to refuse even the most severe 
call on their further support. But on 
yesterday’s evidence the limit may 
now be very close.

In the labs where research 
means finding skilled staff 


COMPUTER HORIZONS/1 


Gates beats those one-job robots 


The UK's shortage of quali- 
fied software engineers -and 
researchers can only get worse 
over the next few years, 
according to a group of 
academics gathered m Bristol 
for a conference last .week, 
writes Geof Wheelwright. 

The conference was held by 
Hewlett-Packard to mark the 
opening of a second research 
laboratory in England - the T 
only two the company have 
outside America. The com- 
pany will soon be talent- 

scoutingas the centre becomes 
fully operational and in need 
of 40 more computer experts. 

The director of the lab- 
oratory. John Taylor, warned 
that even now it is becoming 
difficult to get research people 
of die right calibre for the 
company’s British - lab- 
oratories. He ~Sai± “Training 
in the high-technology area is 
just not adequate to sustain' - 
the level of business that 
people think they would like 
to have in the UK." 

Mr Taylor * believes the 
situation is not likely to 
improve in the near future if 
education trends prevail. 

Mr Taylor and othera at the 
conference agreed that part of 
the problem, is the big dif- 



H-P’s John Taylor: “TralniBg in high ted) is not adequate* 


ference between wages paid at 
universities and those that 
companies', like \ Hewlett- 
Packard must' pay to stay 
competitive with meir sister 
research- programs in other ■ 

coman ies. - : - 

In many cases, a graduate 
student hired by the research 
wing of a large high-tech firm 
can get paid more money as a 
starting wage than a lecturer. 

Mr Taylor said that despite 
the financial temptations of 
industry, there are not many 
people leaving universities di- 
rectly for research centres. He 


added: "Relatively few people 
have, come from teaching jobs 
directly.- Most- have bat an 
.Interest in industry anyway.”. 

Hewlett-Packard, like many 
other companies in high teeth: 
' oology, has been quite, active; 
iii giving donations of com- 
puter equipment to schools 
and universities. The aca- 
demic world, however, has 
made it dear that donations of 
equipment are often useless 
unless also accompanied by 
people with the time and skill 
to train educators in bow to 
use the equipment properly 


Computers have always bad a reputa- 
tion for being rather good robots — 
doing jobs one at a time and carrying - 
out each task as commanded. . . 

They have not however been very ' 
good at moving quickly between 
several tasks, or even running tasks at 
the same time, and have thus so for 
been vastly inferior to any form .of 
human assistance. 

The problems in achieving what 
the computer industry calls multi- 
tasking rave been traditionally in the ' 
Speed and power of the -computer 
. hardware which until recently lacked 
the. memory and speed to handle 
effectively more than one job at once: 

Bet with the growing popularity of 
advanced computer processors like 
the Intel 802&6 chip used in IBM’s 
AT. its lookalike clones and the 
80386 in Compaq’s new Deskpro 
386, it is now the turn of the software 
developers, to face the challenge of 
mnlti-taskiia.. ... 

This “week the -system software ' 
=giant Microsoft has taken a step in ' 
that direction with its latest version of 
the MS-DOS operating system for the 
IBM PC _ and .AT, a development 
likely to catch a good chunk of the 
software community unawares. 

MS-DOS 4.0 is not, as many in the 
industry were expecting, the operat- 
ing system which wifi allow users of 
the IBM AT and its clones to fully 
exploit the power of its Intel 80286 
processor, but rather an! operating 
system update aimed at single users 


who want to run a number of tasks at 
once:- . ..... 

-Microsoft's founder and chairman. 
Bill Gates, says the new operating 
system will be aimed largely at the 
growing number of computer users 
who have a constant need to handle 
communications tasks over both the 
phone and computer networks. 

"It will be used primarily in 


K THE WEEK 1 


By Geof Wheelwright 

systems where a PC is required to 
provide good throughput and re- 
sponse while operating in a commu- 
nications Or network environment," 
said Mr Gates. 

Longtime watchers of the AT- 
desjgned computers may be dis- 
appointed that the new . system 
doesn't support the entire RAM 
memory of the 80286 processor, but 
they win be glad, ro bear that it does 
include support for the extended 
memory specification agreed by Lo- 
tus, Intel and Microsoft, known as the 
UM specification. 

The Microsoft development is just 
one of a number of growing indica- 
tions that the days of the angle- 
tasking, single-user PC are numbered. 
The computer industry is finally 
beginning to recognize that most 


people will want to- hop from one. 
computer task to another during the 
course of a working day. 

. It's expected that much of the work 

by software houses will now be m 
developing programs that use the 
“background partitions^ of the new 
operating system, which allow a 
computer to get on with things by 
itself while the user is doing some- 
thing else on screen. 

Communications is seen as a 
particular growth area because it is a 
task useful to have running all the 
* ■ time so that a computer is constantly 
open to send and receive electronic 
mail and computer files. To this end, 
Microsoft has announced new 
networking and communications 
software to match their new system. 

, Again, software support for the 
network will be crucial as many 
software houses are how at the stage 
where they are developing network 
versions of their word-processing, 
database or spreadsheet software. * 

- Its major competitor in the PC 
system . software business. Digital 
Research, is expected to come out 
with its latest multi-tasking product 
within weeks. Known as Gem XMvit 
will be i version of the company’s 
popular picture-based operating 
environment and wflTallqw a number 
of computer applications to remain in 
the computer's memory at once. 

it will be then that the battle of the 
multi-tasking operating systems 
really starts in earnest- - •

COMPUTER HORiZONS/2 


Faster, friendlier 4GLs put the 
bite on our backbone languages 


Increasing use of fourth generation com- 
puter languages, and their wider acceptance 
as data processing tools of the future.' 
should open up the demand for certain 
specialist programmers in many areas of 
the computer business. 

Various sources in the medium are 
\ quoting annual market growth rates of 
between 1 5 and 20 per cent for these new 
development products, with, a predicted 
corresponding increase in demand for 
experienced programmers and analysts to 
work on them. 

But there are reservations about whether 
the way in which programmers and 
analysts currently work can easily adapt to 
the new tools. Fourth generation develop- 
ment work is said to be akin to the round 
hole into which conventional square peg 
programmers and analysts might not fit 

Languages such as Cobol and Fortran 
have been the backbone of data processing 
systems development for most of the 
current applications in use throughout the 
world. And there are legions of pro- 
^ gram mens and analysts who know such 
i languages inside out. 

Fourth generation languages, novelties a 
few years ago. have been gaining favour 
and are now considered a respectable part 
of the computing scene. And while they 
cover many applications and report gen- 
erators with, as yet. no universal definition. 


formed screens for data input, automatic 


report generation and query processing 
should all make it easier and raster to write 


should all make it easier and raster to write 
and re-wrile applications. 

By reducing the repetitive aspects of 
programming, the time taken for systems 
development can be less than 10 per. cent of 
conventional programming according to 
the most extravagem claims. The average, 
however, is nearer one-third of the time 
taken previously., say ' more ' modest 
deviopers. 

One major advantage is the ability to 
prototype applications to ensure that the

they are here to stay. 

The ability of fourth generation lan- 
guages. or 4GLs as they are often called, to 
provide more natural English language type 
programming is, says the theory, beneficial 
in letting programmers work more directly 
with users. Improved file definition, pre- 


system is what the user really wants. 
Because the user can sit alongside the 
programmer to spedfy-his needs, resulting 
systems can be. produced quickly and 
perhaps fulfil their applications function 
better. 

There are. however, drawbacks as most 
4GLs require the use of greater processing 
power. But with the cost of hardware 
continually falling, while software costs 
increase. 4GL usage will soon become a 
significant saviour in future systems 
development. 

But will such languages actually de-skill 
programmers? 

Dr Geoffrey Forage, who last year 
produced a major report on the fourth' 
generation languages for the Imbucon 
consultancy and is now director of 
information technology at Arthur Young 


Management Consultants: believes .it is 
mprc a case of rethmking and redefining 
the role ofprbgrammers and analysts. 

“We are looking at a different animal." 
he says. “People who work on fourth 
generation languages must have better 
business acumen than exists with con- 
ventional- -programming. - A business 

analyst/'prbgrammer with,. say. knowledge 
of accounting or stock-control is typical of 
lhe4GL-pereon."' 

This' view is supported by Peter Aggleton 
.at BIS Applied Systems. “Fourth genera- 
tion languages demand that programmers 
and analysts- work alongside users." he 
stresses. “That puls a premium on pro- 
grammers who speak English and forces 
analysts to get their hands dirty by doing 
some programming-” 

From such comments it ts obvious that 
- both the. programmers and analysts should 
have equal opportunities for adding knowl- 
edge of 4GL to ttieir skills. But it could be 
that too many years . .of solid Cobol 
programming or pure systems analysis, 
where coding skills have been forgotten, 
may make employers think it could be .hard 
for dyed-in-the-wool programmers and 
analysts to adapt 

Fourth generation people may. perhaps, 
come from the younger data processing 
clement who would be considered more 
flexible to change. 

There are many 4GL openings for those 
who . could work with users, . according 
Computer People, the recruitment ana 
contract " per&TfrieT ' company. ' “FStirth' 
generation language has a mystique, but it 
is not that hard if you can communicate 
with the users. 



Dr Geoffrey Forage: “4GL operators 
must have better business acumen 


Even programmers whose first job 
involved 4GLs are in demand, especially 
on contract work where rates can start at 
£3S0 a. week. More experienced 
-programmer/analysis with experience of. 
say. Focus, one of the most popular 4GLs. 
can command £600 a week on contract. 

Banks and financial organizations, such 
as insurance companies, have been steadily 
increasing their use of fourth generation 
languages. They provide many of the 
opportunities to move into such work, 
though smaller systems are now beginning 
to utilize the latest languages. 

Demand for decision-support and 
management information systems, devel- 
oped using 4GL. are seen as ov ertaking the 
need for transactional based systems. Also, 
there is -a- new -wave of fourth generation 
development . around relational database- 


driven systems using new 4GL tools such 
as Ideal and Ingres s. 

One important point, though, is that the 
greatest demand is still for IBM experience. 
“It is a career feet of life." says Dr Forage. 
“There is still a shortage of people with 
experience of IBM mainframe environ- 
ments. in C1CS for example." 

Although there may be no precise overall 
definitions of fourth generation languages 
the trend is moving ahead. BIS Applied 
Systems is running capacity-filled courses 
for management to look at 4pL while at the 
same lime not disregarding the IBM 
influence for programmers needing train- 
ing. especially on System 38 and its latest 
RPG3 software compiler. 

“Whether RPG3 can be called true 
fourth generation software, or ihree-and-a- 
half generation, doesn't matter." says Mr 
Aggleton. "What is important is the 
demand for its use and the feci that jnany 
programmers want to learn about it." 

While Cobol and other third, or even 
thrce-and-a-half. generation languages will 
still be with us for some time, if only due to 
the vast number of programmers and 
analysts who are familiar with it. 4GL is 
coming on strong. So are the salaries, says 
Myriad, the recruitment consultancy. 

“Fewer coders may find it hard to adapt 
to 4GL," says Patrice Sullivan, the Myriad 
senior consultant. “But if a programmer of 
onlv two vears has user experience, some 
analytical skills and business understand- 
ing lie can expect to pick up £14.000 a year 
by starting to work with fourth generation 
languages." 

If vou already have 4GL experience your 
asking price is £1 7.000. or more if you can 
demonstrate team leadership skills. How- 
ever. if you are set in your 
programming/analyst ways it may pay you 
to knock off a few square edges and become 
a round peg u*hich will fit the fourth 
generation language hole of the future.

Ada cuts the chaos and 
aids overseas markets 



From J Barnes, chairman Ada 
Language UK. Caversham, 
Reading. Berkshire: 

The article Basic Chaos With 
Excessive Languages. - on 
September 9. gave a good view 
of the main purposes of the 
many computer languages in 
use today. However, the Ada 
language, though developed 
for the US Department of 
Defense for miliary program- 
ming. has a much broader and 
growing use all over the world. 

Ada is forming the corner- 
stone of software engineering 
which is bringing order to the 
general chaos. An awareness 
of the benefits of Ada is 
important to all UK com- 
panies who compete in inter- 
national markets. 

From Ken Bowman, 
tt'imhtvne. Dorset: 

Peter Behr's recent piece. Why 
The New Age Is Late In 
Dawning, starts with the plea 
“You have to feel sorry for 
computers". The article then 
demonstrates that it is 
management not computers 
who deserve our attention. 

Information technology, a 
management tool, has consis- 
tently' been five or more years 
ahead of our ability to reap the 
benefit because we are all so. 
busy being specialists in our 
field that we forget to be 
specialists in management 

Surely information manage- 
ment must now become a 
standard feature of manage- 
ment training. 

From Alan M add iso n . 
Thames Polytechnic. London: 
An article in Computer Ho- 
rizons described the Lasky 
hotline phone scheme tor 
dealing with customers trou- 
bles. This will obviously solve 


[( LETTERS ] 


some problems, but does not 
make it entirely safe to bu 
computers off the shelf wit 
no knowledge or competent 
guidance. 

No amount of advice after 
the event will compensate for 
the purchase of the wrong 
computer or the wrong soft 
ware in the first instance. 

Incidentally, the Lasky 
scheme appears to give sup- 
port for only three months. It 
is quite -probable that many 
problems will, only ' emerge 
after that ti me. eg. at year end. 

When buying a computer 
one has to ensure that the 
hardware and software can 
cope with the work volume 
required. Does one need a 
multi-user, oral least a multi- 
tasking system? I would be 
surprised lo find that any 
properly advised estate agent, 
for example, would be really 
happy with a single tasking 
system. 

From T A Rogers. Hope Val- 
ley Micro Services. Sheffield: 

A few weeks ago an elderly 
relative of mine received a 
computer-produced statement 
about an annuity which is 
dependent on her life. I will 
spare the company’s blushes 
by not revealing its name. 

However, not only did this 
document refer to the “contin- 
ued existence of the 
annuitant" which seemed a 
very unfeeling expression to 
use. but it also asked her to 
advise the company “immedi- 
aiely of the death of the 

annuitant" . 

Can it be that they, have 
discovered Celestial Mail?

Their reluctance has been 
greatly increased by the lack of

The next high-street wonder 






APPOINTMENTS 
APPEAR EACH 

TUESDAY 




01-481 4481 


Despite occasional appearances la per- 
sonal compoter font, artificial intelli- 
gence and expert systems have been in 
their short lifetime the general prerog- 
ative of universities, muttinational 
corporations and operations big enoogh 
to afford tire high costs involved. - 

Given that, these two closely related 
technologies have tended to be nsed for a 
restricted range of applications. 
Corporations tend to nsesnch systems to 
help than prospect for oil or minerals, 
while universities explore their capabili- 
ties for fatnre applications. Only occa- 
sionally does the expert system appear 
in an application which directly con- 
fronts tire person in'tfie street. The 
classic example is medical diagnosis. 

This Is. likely to change, however, if 
Texas ins&nmaits -gets its way. The 
company has come op with a new 
semiconductor chip which it sees as 
being the basis of an entirely new range 
of applications far attifidaHntelligeiice 
and expert systems. 

Known as the Megachip, it packs 
most of the processor used hi the 
company’s Explorer machine into a 
single slice Of silicon half an inch 
square. The E^dorar system is a 
symboUc processing co mputerof reason- 
able power and not inconsiderable size— 
although ft is small by foe norms of 
artificia] intelligence. 

The Megachip forms tire basis of a 
new computer system which graphically 


By Martin Banks 

illustrates one of the chief advantages 
that shnnid stem from the development. 
The Compact Lisp Machine, is . a 
shoebox-size computer specifically dedi- 
cated to run ^ lisp, the m ai n s tream 
program nsed in artificial intelligence ' 
and expert systems. 

In aHHHimi, the company Is . 

foe chip itself, together with other 
components needed to support fts opera- 
tions, available to any others that want 
to incorporate artifirial-mteiligeBce sys- 
tems directly into their product. 

This is quite a significant break with 
c m r e n t practice in tbejjehhjrecause it 

area jsodsend 


will allow systems designers to think of 
new ways of solving nsers problems, 
especially in systems with which foe 
person in the street comes into contort. 

Atypical example might be bank cash 
terminals. These are generally conrid- 
ered'tb be a godsend, except of coarse 
when the 'customer cannot get them to 
work. Often foie cause jrnotanrrlsted to 
the skill and dexterity of the nsers. ^ 

Imagi n e inste ad befog confronted with 
a terminal that knew your nawf, conld 
point out where yon are going wrong in 
your key work, check which fimetian or’ 


service you really wanted and politely 
point out that you cannot have anything 
anyway because yon need to make an 
appointment to see your branch 
manager. 

The incorporation of something like, 
the Megachip conld brii^'a Mgh leveTpf 
expert system inter-action to each high- 
street terminal , interaction levels avail- 
able at present only from huge and 
expensive computer systems — which 
wtwld not fit inside cash terminals 
anyway. 

Though Texas Instruments looks 
longingly .towards such long-term 
applications, it sees tire initial rote far 
the new products in 'foe heftvy end of 
software deretopmrat-tbe HcashoalA 
be of interest to maajt systems -analysts 
and software developers, for U sees foe 
chip being tire basis of a new range of 
programmer’s workstations. 

These would allow the programmer to 
create an application symbolically, as a 
concept The system woaM then check 
out the concept and how tire various 
aspects of it fit together. It would, far 
example, be able to pin-point potential 
probkin :' areas in tire program writ 
-before, they . became so. fi coaid -also 
work out the best language to ose for the 
application. 

And it could be nsed actnally to 
produce foe code reqrired to make the' 
program ran. .

to raforec health and safety regula- 
tions. Stephen Collins, the deputy

WSi L 

The EH Os duties are concerned with 
food safety and hygiene, housing con- 
ditions. health and safety at work, 
pollution, infectious diseases, pest con- 
trol, water aJnd waste, and a number of 
other matters, including the licensing of 
tattoo ists. 

Food safety and hygiene depend on 
regular inspection of ail premises where 
food is produced, prepared and sold. 


Health can be affected by 
bad housing and careless 
food handling techniques 

Visits are paid to slaughterhouses, 
poultry-packing stations, fectories, res- 
taurants, shops and ports. At slaughter- 
houses, EHOs ensure that there is a foil 
post-mortem inspection of all carcases 
for fitness for consumption; they employ 
specialist meat inspectors to assist them. 

Food handling techniques is one of the 
most important aspects of food hygiene 
and EHOs spend much time checking 
these. They carry out in-service staff 
training and, if someone opens new 
premises, they are involved from the 
start, advising on equipment, food 
storage and washing facilities. Food 
poisoning cases are followed up and 
samples taken for bacteriological 
examination. 

Health can be affected by bad housing 
as well as by careless handling of food. So 
the EHOs police the bad landlord in the 
private sector. They deal with 
overcrowding, multi-occupancy houses, 
and give improvement and repair grants 
to private occupiers and . owners of 
rented property. 

If a house is not brought up to 
standard, the officers start enforcement 
procedures for repairs, closure, or demo- 
lition. Caravan sites are licensed to 
ensure that living conditions are 
reasonable. 


From a case of bad food 
poisoning while out 
dining to poor health 
from damp housings it is 
an environmental health 
officer who investi gates, 
Joan Llewelyn Owens 
considers the challenge 
of this demanding work 

Working conditions can also be a risk 
to health. The 1974 Health and Safety at 
Work Act provides for the protection of 
nearly every worker and includes the 
prevention of risks to the public in or 
near industrial and commercial activ- 
ities. 

The. Health and Safety Executive is 
employed by central government to 
cover factories: local authority environ- 
mental health officers deal with the rest. 

In Tunbridge Wells recently, a res- 
taurant owner was prosecuted after a 
woman lost the top of her finger in a 
mincing machine. The machine was 
inadequately and the woman 

was using her fingers because she had not 
been given suitable equipment, or proper 
training to feed the meat into the 
machine. 

Since the 1 952 Clean Air Act there has 
been far less air pollution in Britain, but 
it continues to be a problem. The 
growing number of vehicles does not 
help. EHOs are responsible for control- 
ling the air pollution from domestic, 
commercial and industrial sources, and 
have to monitor pollutants. Officers can 
advise factory owners on equipment to 
reduce pollution. 

Noise can be an equal source of 
irritation, and EHOs can do something 
about the young man who constantly 
revs up a motor bike in his backyard, or 
the householder whose radio blares at 
two am. In almost every case, however 
EHOs advise the sufferers to get together 
with others nearby to make a Joint 
representation to the offender. 

Sometimes it is possible to shame the 
offender into better behaviour. Once the 
local authority is brought in, any good, 
neighbourly feeling which might have 
existed vanishes. 

When there are outbreaks of the more 
serious infectious diseases, EHOs in- 
vestigate along with district community 
doctors. At times it is necessary to isolate 
people or to keep them away from work. 


Fan control is an essential pre- 
ventative health measure, and EHOs 
supervise staff who deal with problems 
caused by rats, mice, insects, bees and 
wasps. 

Their wide-ranging responsibilities 
also include waste collection, sampling 
private water supplies and Sfriitiming 
pools, and licensing premises dealing 
with animals, from petshops.io stables. 
Because of the range of tasks, it is usual 

for EHOs to become specialists in 
several subjects. There is a greater degree 
of specialization in a large authority, but 
in Tunbridge Wells, a relatively wmii 
authority, the specialism is split between 
housing and drainage, and food, pollu- 
tion, health and safety. 

Educational qualifications required 
for an EHO arc five GCE passes, 
including English language, mathematics 
and two sciences, and two A levels, one 
of which must be a science. Entrants can 
qualify either by taking a degree in 
environmental health or the diploma in 
environmental health awarded by the 
Institution of Environmental Health 
Officers. 

In both cases, it is necessary to attend 


Within forger authorities 
it is normal to become a 
specialist in several subjects 


an approved three or four year course in 
which approved professional training 
with a local authority is integrated with 
theoretical instruction. 

Unfortunately, although the institu- 
tion reports a five per cent shortage of 
EHOs in England, Wales and Northern 
Ireland, there are not enough training 
places with local authorities. The institu- 
tion is making representations to local 
authority associations and has received a 
sympathetic response. 

Prospects for the qualified EHO are 
good, though it may be necessary to 
move to gain promotion. Many EHOs 
have begun to work in commerce, being 
employed by firms such as Marks & 
Spencer and Sainsbury. and by food 
consultants. 

Opportunities also occur within local 
authorities for technical officers to assist 
EHOs. Some may have already studied, 
or be studying, for a BTEC National 
Diploma in environmental health stud- 
ies. With this under their belts, they can 
go for higher qualifications and even- 
tually become EHOs.

CHEvSTERTONS 



By JohnFtamessy . . 

Two hnndred and -fifty 
a^iring golfers will set out 
today in. their search for the 
crock of gold But only 76 will 
survive to join 124 others fora 
tournament over six rounds at 
La Manga. Spain, in Novem- 
ber. Of them, the top SO will be 
granted the key to -Aladdin’s 
Cave, or at least tbo key lb its . 
ante-room. 

They win have won their - 
PGA European Tour card and 
thus be able to compete 
alongside the -the' likes of 
Ballesteros. Laager. Lyle and 
Faldo for some of the rich 
pickings that the professional 
game has to offer. 

They make a motley collec- 
tion, as they set forth on the 
two neighbouring Surrey 
courses of Foxhills and 
Silvermere. There am old lags 
of the tour who have fallen off 
the meny -go-round and are 
trying to get back on, some are 
distinguished’ amateurs who 
are ready to chance their arm 
and others are assistants who 
think themselves to be des- 
tined for higher things than 
selling tee pegs. One, notably, 
is an amateur who took the 
plunge a year ago and foiled to 
survive the last two rounds at 
La Manga. As a result Craig 
Laurence, the pride of Essex a 
couple of years ago, is sitting 
this entrance ~exanr "again, ~ 
together with his friend. John 
Hawksworth. 

Laurence, aged 23, won the 
English Championship three 
years ago and seemed set fora 
glittering career. He had not 
only the game but also the 
attributes for professional suc- 
cess. He is a neat, tidy, clean- 
cut young man with some- 
thing of the jaunty gait as well 
as the physique of Tony - 
Jacklin. 

If anyone would make it, so 
went popular opinion, 'Craig ~ 
Laurence would. He hasn’t. 



Craig Laurence: “If yon are good enough yon will make it” 


not yet anyway. He played for 
England in 1983, 1984 and 
I9SS, but the failure of the 
Walker Cup selectors to rec- 
ognize his qualities and pit 
him against the United States 
was a blow to his pride 
Like Hawksworth. who did 
make the Walker Cup team, 
he went to La Manga and 
returned a disappointed man. 
but disappointment turned to 
disillusionment when he 


discovered, again like 
Hawksworth, that he was 
denied an opportunity to play 
in regional PGA tournaments 
and pro-ams. This ran directly 
contrary to the information 
given to the players at La 
Manga and has led to a good 
deal of heartache and hardship 
in many quarters. He found he 
had almost nowhere to go to 
cam a living. 

Laurence, decent person 


RUGBY UNION 


Blueprint drawn up to do 
battle for hearts of young 


By David Hands, Rugby Correspondent 


The decline of team sports in 
stale schools, much argued of 
late, has brought a positive 
response in rugby circles. It was 
the main topic on the agenda of 
the Rugby Football Schools 
Union biennial conference in 
August and the Rugby-Football 
Union’s coaching; snb^mmitr 


visional technical admin- 
istrator. held a touch rugby 
competition at Morley during 
the summer which advanced the 
cause of team sports and in- 
cluded entrants from both rugby 
union and amateur rugby 
league. .. _ T . 

: . That approach suggests — as 


tee has just accepted the prin- the Australians have found — ' 
cipal Of a -National Schools 'that both codes of rugby can 
Week* which, given official ap- -• leant- from- each other. Indeed 


provak -would -be held - next 
summer. 

Rugby Union has become 
only too aware in recent months 
of the battle that has to be fought 
for the beans and minds of the 
nations’ young. At present the 
game is inad e qua t ely staffed to 
go to war but that situation, too. 
is changing: the Scottish Rugby 
Union’s first paid youth dev- 
elopment officer. Chris Spence, 
the Stewart’s Melville full bade, 
started work in .Glasgow this 
season and the RFU win be 
considering the appointment of 
additional paid officials of their 
Own. 

It is hoped in Scotland that 
Spence will be joined shortly by 
officers for other areas (though 
that may depend upon the 
success of* the first appoint- 
ment); England may bear in 
mind the words of Geoff 
Edmondson, secretary of the 
National Council for School 
Sports, at the biennial con- 
ference at Heythrop Park, who 
called for a national private 
register of coaches who would 
visit schools,** and you would 
have to pay them”. 

At that conference there was a 
certain wariness between repre- 
sentatives of schools and those 
from the dubs. The Central 
Council of Physical Recreation 
expressed the dilemma thus: 
“The CCPR shared the view 
that though the development of 
sporting talent in the local dub 
structure has been seen to 
counterbalance the decline of 
sport in schools, there are 
dangers inherent in that system 
which could be averted if experi- 
enced educationalists became 
in voWed.” 

However a RFU random 
survey of schools rugby 
Ihrougb-out 12 counties sug- 
:geste*r-a .-.depressing - lack- of- 
staffing; there were instances of 
one r,ian running five or six 
teams and apathy from younger . 
members of staff-coming from- 
the training colleges. The indus- 
trial dispute was seen by those ■ 
less thair totally committed as a 
way out of extra work and the 

S ine's indifferent public image 

s not helped. 

If the problems are many the 
answers are equally diverse. In 
the north, for instance, where 
there. is additional competition 
caused by the growing strength • 
of the British Amateur Rugby 
League Association (BARLA), 
-David Shaw; the RFU di- 


BARLA were delighted to have 
an entry from Bramley rugby 
union dub in their youth sevens 
earlier this mouth, even if 
another commitment sub- 
sequently prevented Bramley 
playing “We are not talking 
about rugby league men playing 
rugby union, or vice versa,” 
Shaw said. “We are talking 
about teams with similar train-, 
ing systems and practices getting 


justification, that boys may be 
overplayed or that dub fixtures 
may take priority over school 
games. 

However, the RFSU recom- 
mend that dubs obtain the 
permission of schools before 
selecting boys and that, in any 
case, they can make a positive 
effort to choose boys from non- . 
rugbv playing schools: ~We' 
should strive,” the RFSU 
recommendations state, *To 
present rugby as a spectator 
sport, thus attracting more 
youngsters into the game.” 

In that respect a major 
championship is always helpful 
and. with Olympic, world, and 
European events in other sports, 
one wonders whether the young 
perceive the five nations 
championship as just a teeny bit 
parochial. To put it another 


together in --friendly - way.-rugby's- first- World Gup — indubnigby.

that he is. tends not to over- 
dramatize his plight. “This 
year has been a little, bit 
frustrating.” he says with 
remarkable restraint Much 
stronger words have been used 
elsewhere, especially when 
they now sec a player like 
Peter Baker, the flavour of the 
year, receiving sponsors* in- 
vitations week after week to 
the big tournaments through 
the string-pulling of a power- 
ful agent. 

Laurence has been able to 
play in only half a dozen 
tournaments since La Manga 
last November, all but one of 
them abroad. Winning the 
English title in I9S3 brought 
with it life membership of his 
dub, Warren, so that at least 
he is not short of practice 
facilities. 

He lost a potential sponsor 
when it was realized that he 
could not pby in PGA events 
but he has won the support of 
a number of private individ- 
uals, including some members 
of the Warren Club. After all 
the tribulations he has suf- 
fered he takes a generously 
philosophical view of things. 
He believes, quite simply; **lf 
you’re good enough, you're 
going to make it.” Many hope 
that he is and he will. 

Laurence plays his two 
rounds today and tomorrow at 
Silvermere in a field that 
includes - Duncan Muscroit, 
the youngest of the Yorkshire 
clan, and Richard Kaplan, the 
South African winner of the 
English stroke-play cham- 
pionship for the Brabazon 
Trophy this year. Among 
those playing at Foxhills are 
Hawksworth. David Gilford. 
Mark Davis and Dana Banke. 

The mathematical odds 
against any one player gening 
his card is about seven or eight 
to one, so Laurence's "if 
you're good enough” should 
perhaps cany the rider “and if 
you’re lucky enough. 


Selectors 
rely on 
past form 

By David Hands 

The Combined English Stu- 
dents. who play the Japanese at 
Oxford on October 7. have been 
forced to choose a variety of 
players no longer in full-time 
education- A match so early in 
the academic year means the 
selectors have relied on last 
: season's form and they wHI be 
hoping that players who have 
been away on tour return 
uninjured. 

That includes those such as 
Oti, who was at Durham 
University last year but has won 
a place at Cambridge, with 
whom he has spent this month 
on tour in the Far Easu

players would be brought to- 
gether via divisional weekends 
and in a National Schools Week,' 
which would be sponsored, as 
are similar courses in the south- 
ern hemisphere. In that way the 
task of schools' representatives 
would be made easier in selec- 
tions the following season. 

The schools, not unnaturally, 
do not wish to relinquish their 
rqle to outsiders, be they from 
- national unions or local clubs. 
They also fear, with some 


administrate at all.

THE TIMES TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 23 1986 


****** s*- 


Asmussen a force to be reckoned with 


G ash Asmussen is a young 
man in the fast lano. And 
§o-gc«iw- French 
champion jockey’s four 
successes at leopardstora on Sat- 
urday, which indnded a doable for 
Vincent O'Brien and two other 
victories for different trainers, win 
have made him even more con- ‘ 
▼faced that the read he is raking to 
Bally doyle next spring does not 
represent a potential rente to 
disaster. 

Both Pat Eddery and Lester 
Pfegott have enjoyed their most 
prosperous eras working for the 
now 67-year-old Irish genus. The 
names of such champions as Sir 
Ivor. Nijinsky, The Minstrel, At . 
ieged, Golden Fleece and E3 Gran 
Senor are already legends in the 
history of the European turf. 

And now, with Eddery having 
severed his connection with 
BaHydoyle fa favour of a mutti- 
million pound contract with Khaled 
Abdulla, A sm usse n is to step into 
his shoes at a time when the 
fortunes of O'Brien and Rohm 
Sangster, his most influential 
owner, are at a low ebb. 

However, hitting back at the 
critics, who fear that an alliance 
with a stable that has been laid low 
with the virus for the past two 
seasons may be tem p ting prov- 
idence, the 26-year-old Sooth Da- 
kota-born rider says: “As soon as I 
came to Europe I knew I wanted to 
spend some time with Vincent 
O'Brien. He's not only one of the 
most knowledgeable trainers in tbe 
world. He's also a great horseman, 
organiser and breeder. I want to 
benefit from that knowledge before 
its put on the shelf and lost for ever 
when he retires." . . 

“Vincent had two quiet seasons, 
so he's bound to bounce back," be 
continued. “He’s got 50 of (he best 
bred horses in the world. If they are 
right. I've got classic winning 
chances. But if they're not right, 
they don't ran and I'm free to take 
other mounts with classic potential. 
I’ve done my homework." 

A fifth generation American, 
Asmnssen's whole life has been 
centred round the thoroughbred.. 
He rode his first winner on a 
quarter-horse at the age of 12. "My 
father and brother ware jockeys, 
my mother's a trainer. We con- 
dition horses for training and also 
operate a stud firm at Laredo in 
Texas." 

He is eagerly anticipating die 
next step fa his career. "A change 
always keeps me looking forward to 
tomorrow. Yon have to wake op in 
the morning with a lot of Afire. 1 


Following in the 


footsteps of Lester 


Piggott and Pat Eddery 
as first jockey tathe - 


great Irish trainer 


Vincent O’Brien is a 


young American jockey 
who is sure to make a 


big impact oh the 


British racing scene. 


Cash Asmussen, already 


champion rider in 


France, talks to 


Michael Seely 


aim to go fir and reach for the 
stars." 

Asmussen has come a long way 
since he entered (he jungle of New 
York, at the age of I s . I already 
knew what life was abort and Iwas 
conditioned to handle it My par- 
ents wouldn't have- let me leave 
home if I hadn't had a 'moral base. 

That’s what kept me from going off 
the rails." 

Asmussen was head-hunted by 
Ifraneois Boutin and Stavros 
Niarchos from . the New York 
circuit, whore he had been leading 
apprentice and twice top jockey. 

Analysing his reasons. four years 
later, he says, “America was great, 
bat I coaid see limitations. With 
lock I was going to make it to the 
top. Bat mice yon-get- there* its- -creek at -the -race 
difficult to break through the Asmussen said, 
barrier that leads to something 
different I could see no future on 
the level I was interested in." 




Asmussen: film stair looks 


Asmnssea's lively imagination b 
fired by die narrowing of the 
world's horizons and fire ever- 
increasing, international aspect, of 
the ’ thoroughbred' industry. 
“Horseradns b beaming so inter- 
nationaL No longer da the bodies of 
water separate the competition." he 
said. . 

The jockey then waxed lyrical 
abort the two-way traffic between 
Europe and the United States, both 
in breeding and racing. “And at the 


“now it's over, sfeffiM i*JJJ 
dropped 50 percent in the past two 
years, that’s tremendoas. 

"We need to cat off the long 
branches that are dragging down 
the Straw It’s going to bettmgh. But 
those, who survive wiU be jn a 
strong position as they wiU s® 1 w 
running for' million dollars P*fff 
at the Breeders Cap and £200- 
300,000 races in Europe". 

He finds that European racing 
places much more of a chaltoageto 

horsesas well as to jockeys, the 

Steles, the -tracks are all left- 
feaisded, 90% dirt, only a mile round 
and at the most they have a two 
furlong straight Brt what could be 
more different over . here than

Park and Newmarket 

When yon get a home stretqh of

got a deep respect for the prepara- 
tion of classic horses over hart. It's 
such a scientific study and their

was beaten by Sagace m the Arc 
and I'd like to have had another

Doncaster Cup was a masterpiece 
of sympathy combined with 


Rewarding spell 
with Boutin 


The jockey’s three years with one 
of France’s most powerful stables 
was highly rewarding, producing 
classic and other tig-race victories; 
on such stars as L'Eraigrant, April - 
Rea and Northern Trick. 

"I struck up a great rapport with 
the trainer and X respect Mr 
Niarchos for the chance he gave 
me. These things need mentioning. 
Most people weald have paid for 
the position I received, brt they 
paid me to ride their great horses. 
My biggest regret was that North- 
ern Trick didn't stand- trainmg. The 


He won the Cravache d'Or, the 
French jockeys' championship, last 
season and with 95 victories, 
indoding 20 pattern race winners, 
in his one and only season with 
Mahmoud Fonstok already to his 
credit is certain to capture the 
trophy for the second time. 

British racegoers have seen more 
of Asmussen in action this summer 
than hitherto. JEBs handling of 
Cutting Blade, Moon Madness and 
Last Tycoon at Royal Ascot drew 
rave notices from the critics. like 
Lester Piggott, he is a law unto 
hmuu4f. He may look slightly 
ungainly fa a finish, brt is forceful 
and effective. 


Horses certainly rm for him.

Dark and blessed with film star 
good looks, Asmusse n looks teller 
than the 5ft 6in he admits to. 
Talking abort the techniques and 
difficulties of his trade, be is well 
aware of the tough com peti tion be 
will be firing from the likes of Pat 
Eddery, Steve Carthen, Willie 
Carson, Walter Swinbrnn and 
Tony Ives next season. 

“Seasoning and experience," he 
says, “that’s what it takes to make 
good jockeys and good horses, too, 
sore and confident of themselves. 
Rare riding is all about developing 
a fed for pace and getting the 
rhythm of a race. You've got to 
know how much horse 
left to get from point A to paint 1 

He is constantly striving for 
perfection. “I hope I ride a better 
rare tomorrow than I did today. If I 
don't, I fed I'm losing something." 
• Intense and highly articulate. 


to race for the Breeden < 

It's a fantastic concept.' 

Obviously already wealthy, 
Asmussen likes to keep his finger 
on thepulse of current affairs. “I 
want to know what my friend, the 
King of Morocco hr doing tomor- 
row. If l had toridehla horses and 
go to meet him at his palace, I need 
to know whether GadaflTs mad at 
him or whether he's talking to 
Yasser Arafat. K like to know the 
temperature." 

He is also certain Out be is fa the 
right business. “Most of the people, 
who are major forces fa the worid 
today, love horses. Ami that’s right 
up my. alley. It's not only the sport 
of ldngs, it's the lrihfc«€ sport." 

“The worid economy is fa a 
dangerous situation. IPs tough to 
make a dollar or a pound in many 
businesses.. Brt rariBgj is basically 
healthy." 

Then, talking about the 
overheating of tbe bloodstock econ- 
omy, when Robert Sangster, the 
Arabs and a few others indulged in 
orgies of frantic bidding for a few 
years, sending prices soaring to 
heights,, he says. 


In November Asmnssen wfll. be 
tearing the leafy boulevard*, of 

Paris and the forests of Chantilly 
and return home to the States. In 
March be plans to move to Tip- 
perary, where the Galtee Mdtm- 
tains took down on BaUydoyle._ “I 
enjoyed my dme in France, learning 
the language and experiencing a 
new enfftrtre. ftrtl plan to return 
there most Sundays' when I shall be 
riding n lot for Issam Fares, an 
International financier, who mu 

have abort 60 horses fa training in 
the Paris and I also intend to be in 
Britain a whole lot more." 

Talking to the highly motivated 
and voluble Asmnssen presented a 
striking and amusing contrast (dan 
interview with the tedtura Lester 
Piggott, whose every word is mea- 
sured like gold dust. But Asmussen 
too is also an astute businessman, 
whose flair of eloquence and 
colourful imagery in reality gives 
nothing away. 

like most of his countrymen, he 
knows how to sell himself and how 
to hnstie. Brt when be concluded by 
saying, “Pm loving life. It treatarae 
good. And I want to do it the same 
Justice as it gives to me," he really 
means iL

CRICKET 

===i)rkshire 
* iave hard 
"decisions 
to make 

By Peter Ball 

Thc latest twist in cricket's 
longest-running snap open, the 
doings of Geoffrey Boycott and 
die Yorkshire cricket folk; will 
be an veiled tonight when the 
Yorkshire committee meet to 
consider their cricket sub- 
committee's recommendations 
r \ on contracts for next season. 
Even seasoned Heading- 
Keyologists are hedging their 
bets as to whether the final 
chapter Is being written. . 

Boycott is not the only name 
whose fatnre is believed to be at 
risk, but whatever the outcome, 
the saga is unlikely to supplant 
the newer one in the West 
Coon try in the ratings, even If a 
night of long knives is coujnred 
op- 

Whatever decisions are made, 
there is anKkely tn be any 
repetition of the internecine 
strife of three years ago, a 
measure of bow successftilly a 
counter-revolution engineered 
by Viscount Moon (garret and 
t , confirmed at last spring's ammal 
* ' general meeting has taken hold. 

But if Yorkshire for ooce are 
in the smug position of watching 
Somerset corner their nsnal 
market in fratricide — even 
should they decide to bite tire 
ballet and release Boycott, it 
would be unlikely to produce 
more than a squall of discontent 
— the cricket committee chair- 
man Brian Close and his col- 
leagues have some hard 
decisions to make. Their recom- 
mendations will be the first 
indication of their blueprint for 
. restoring Yorkshire to its lead- 

i mg position among the counties 

■ after a decade in the wilderness. 

. As well as the position of 

• Boycott David Bairstow. whose 
wicketkeeping has f al len away 
as he has battled solidly on 
through injuries which com- 
pounded the pressures of cap- 
taincy, his vice-captain, Phil 
Carrick. Graham Stevenson and 
Arnold Sidebotton have all had 
their detractors advocating that 
this is the time for a dean sweep 
of die old gaard. All are likely to 
occupy the committee's thoughts 
this afternoon, bat the suspicion 
is Ha*, alter a summe r of 
reasonable harmony they win 
take a low key approach. 

Whether that will extend to 
Boycott is inevitably the centre 
, of speculation, and the fete of 

* the others may be bonod op in 
the committee's decision on 
what to do with their most 
accomplished opening batsman, 
since Sir Len Hutton. It is also 
inextricably bound op with the 
captaincy, which is not expected 
to be decided this evening. 

Disatisfactkm with Babstow's 
leadership has increased this 
season, and it is not only 
Boycott's dwindling band of 
supporters who see their hero as 
a short-term solution. Prac- 
tically, be undoubtedly pos- 
sesses (be best brain m the dnh, 
and with Close now in a position 
to keep a firm hand on die reins, 
the idea of him batting down the 
order and captaining the side 
has some appeal. 

Boycott rejected that sugges- 
tion when it was first mooted by 
Close in 1 985 . But soundings 
' taken of a possible move to 
Nottinghamshire were un- 
favourable, and be has let it be 
known that this time he wenld be 
[ interested. 

It does however beg rather 
more questions than it answers. 
■His retention on anything other 
Hub a matcMo-maicb contract 
will almost certainly cause sev- 
eral of the young players to seek 
assurances about their future 
. before they re-sign, while Nefl 

Hartley, his most likely succes- 
sor, con Id not be certain of his 
own place in the team if Boycott 
! batting in the middle order. 


My own suspicion is that 
. Yorkshire will offer him i nstead 
' a mafeb-to- match contract. In 
itself that would be a small 
revointioo, for no capped player 
has been offered such terms 
before. 

It has. however, a great appeal 
of avoiding even the minor upset 
inherent in dispensing with his 
services — if be rejected those 
terms, as seems likely, it would 
be hn own decision — white st 
Ibe same time it would provide 
cover should Moxou and Met- 
calfe receive Test calls next 
'summer. If he does accept, it 
would also necessitate his 
resignation from the committee 
ns would any more permanent 
contract. 

The same solution could even 
be offered to SfdeboCtom. whose 
v .run of henries has made his 
prospects uncertain. The de- 
rision (o allow Rhodes to leave in 
1985. however, means there is 
no apparent alternative to 
Bairstow as wicketkeeper and 
both be and Carrick are likely to 
be offered a further one year. 
That would leave only Stevenson 
and possibly the young all- 
rounder, Pickles, and the off- 
spinner, Swallow on the oufsMe. 
A night of the long knives is not 
in prospect. 


TENNIS 


McEnroe back 
to shatter the 
peace with all 
his old verve 

From Richard Evans, Los Angeles 

delights McEnroe laid on for 
bis clientele in tbe semi-final 
against Brad Gilbert served 
merely as an appetiser for the 
succulent main course he pro- 
duced against Ecfoerg. 

Considering his stale of 
mip d at the start of the week 
when a mood of depression 
bordering on despair hung 
over him, McEnroe brought 
his talents back to the boil 
with nwiaring speed. By the 
end the motivation he had 
been searching for re-emerged 
arm-in-arm with his burgeon- 
ing form. The 'very act. of 
playing well became a moti- 
vator in itself 
Unfortunately McEnroe's 
chances of qualifying for the 
in New Yi 


John McEnroe's stunningly 
decisive 6-2, 6-3 victory over 

Stefan Edberg in the final of 

the Volvo tournament here on 
Sunday night has changed the 
complexion of men's tennis, 
fit winning his first Nabisco 
Grand Prix title in ten 
months, McEnroe has thrust 
himselfback into the forefront 
of the game, re-injecting the 
sport with a measure of excite- 
ment and controversy that has 
been missing for most of file 
year. 

Many of McEnroe's critics 
will have welcomed the air of 
civility that had descended on 
the circuit during his eight 
month sabatical but file fact 
remains that no one — not 
even Boris Becker — creates as 
much interest amongst the 
media and the public. As 
record crowd figures at the 
UCLA tennis centre proved, 
McEnroe remains a promo- 
ter's dream. 

Even Edberg, a beaten final- 
ist here for the second 
successive year, was ’ suf- 
ficiently open-minded to wel- 
come McEnroe's return to 
form — perhaps as he joined 
Anders Jarryd in the doubles 
final to beat McEnroe and 
Peter Fleming 3-6, 7-5, 7-6 
after the top seeds saved 
match points from 6-3 down 
in the final set tie-break. 

“I think he's good for the 
game because he's such a great 
player and creates so much 
excitement”, said the young 
Swede. “I find some of the 
things fte does on court very 
annoying, but you just come 
to expect it after a while.” 

For the purists who can 
block out the unappealing side 
of McEnroe's personality and 
concentrate solely on his skill, 
his return to form offers the 
spectator the chance to be led 
from the hamburger stall back 
to the gourmet kitchen.

"Playing at Madison Square 
Garden is always special for 
me but it looks as if I have left 
it too late.” he said, “Ironi- 
cally I have much less chance 
now because they have done 
exactly what 1 had been ad- 
vocating — changing the dale

more sense, but it doesn't help 
me this year. 

-Barring miracles H is prob- 
ably too late for him to 
achieve anything truly signify 
cant in 1986, but should he 
Jddc off tbe next campaign 
with a victory in the Austra-

ICE SKATING 


Conway’s progress review 


The St Ivel International at 
Richmond, from today until 
Thursday, wifi provide a valu- 
able yardstick with which' to 
gauge the progress of Joanne 
Conway, aged 15, tbe bolder of 
the British championship and a 
glowing prospect 
Miss Conway’s rival and 
predecessor of last season, Su- 
san Jackson, has now turned 
professional, bill two skaters 
from across the Atlantic offer 
such formidable competition 
that it would be .unreasonable to 
expect Miss Conway to finish - 
higher than third. They are 
Eli z a beth Manley, the Canadian 
champion, who was fifth last 
season in the world champion- 
ships, and Jill Trenary, yet 
another gifted skater from the 


By John Henaessy 

United States. Miss Trenary, 
like Miss Conway, is trained m 
Colorado by Carlo and Christa 
Fassi/ 

The British champion, alas, 
seems to have lost her timing in 
free-skating recently and the 
Fassis are not too optimistic 
about her prospects. This is 
deeply disappointing, for it was 
at this event last year that Miss 
Conway first showed- her poten- 
tial at international level and 
posed a serious, c h allenge to 
Miss Jackson. A few weeks later. 
Miss Conway scaled even 
greater heights and took over 
tbe British title. . 

A setback followed in the 
European championships, 
where Miss Jackson finished 


seventh and Miss Conway 1 lth. 
That led foe selectors to send 
Miss Jackson, rather than their 
national champion, to foe world 
championships; a* wasted 
opportunity, as it turned out, for 
Miss Jackson withdrew from foe 
competition through illness and 
has subsequently left foe scene. 

There is no need for dismay, 
however, for Miss Conway is so 
early in her career and Septem- 
ber so early in the season. 
Furthermore, her compulsory 
figures ara outstanding, - and if 
she can .safely negotiate the 
perils of foe short programme 
tonight, and particularly the 
■combination jump, her spirits 
may be high enough to sustain 
her in tomorrow's long 
programme. 


ICE HOCKEY 


Pavelich causes a stir 


By Norman de Mesquite 


Ice Hockey authorities the 
world over have been put to the 
test these past few days. Follow- 
ing complaints by New York 
Rangers, the president of the 
National Hockey League con- 
tacted the International Ice 
Hockey Federation in Vienna 
who, in turn, called foe British 
Ice Hockey Association. The 
reason was tbe appearance, in a 
Dundee Rockets sweater, of 
Mark Pavelich, who walked out 
on the Rangers last March 
following a difference of opinion 
with bis coach. 

Pavelich claims be is under no 
contractual obligation to foe 
Rangers. The NHL club thinks 
otherwise, and Dundee were 
informed on Friday that Pave- 
lich must not play for them. 
Despite that, he scored four 
goafs and two assists in a 9-1 win 
at Glasgow on Saturday. Fred 
Meredith, president of the 
BIHA flew to Dundee to ensure 
that be did not play on Sunday 
and. without him. the Rockets 
went down to fife Flyers, who 
completed their fourth Norwich 
Union Gup win in as many 
games. 

Durham Wasps continue to 
lead the England North division 


with three wins out of three, but 
their success over Whitley War- 
riors was a strange affair. They 
held a two-man advantage for 
eight and a half minutes early in 
the second period, but foiled to 
score until they themselves were 
short; and then did so twice. 

Tbe England South division is 
wide open, although if Notting- 
ham Furthers continue to ’ 
below their best away 
home, they could be foe first 
side to be knocked out of 
contention.

BOWLS 

Partners join 
forces for 
success story 

The McCarthy and Stone 
national mixed pairs champion- 
ship is a lusty infant (Gorton 
Allan writes). There were so 
many entries for the inaugural 
event in 1985 that a limit of 
2,048 pairs was set for this year. 
For 1987 that ceiling has been 
raised to 4,000. - 
As recently as the early 1970s 
mixed pairs competitions at any 
level were scarce . in Britain. 
Now foe English Bowling 
Association and foe English 
Women's Bowling Association 
are co-operating harmoniously 
in one of foe most successful 
events in tire calendar. 

Although -the policy is to 
move tbe venue around the 
country, tire Bedford Borough 
dub, where tire final stages were 
played on Sunday, may be used 
again next year. The totalities 
are excellent, but foe green, 
which was re] aid five years ago, 
is patchy. The players* diffi- 
culties with it were dear in tbe 
final, ■which was won by John 
McConnell and his mother-in- 
law June Measures, of Henlow 
Park, Bedfordshire; who beat 
Michael Trimble and his wife 
Patsy, of Malmesbury, 24-19.

Injuries 
worry 
England 

By Sydney Frisian 

A 1-0 defeat and a 3-2 rictotr 
in Spam over the weekend left 
England with a few worries with 
less than a fortnight to go before 
the World Gap tournament 
starts in London on October 4. 

Tire mam problem lies fa 
defence, where Faulkner has 
played only four fateraational 
matches as aa i tprrimtatil 
right back became tire regdarm 
that position, the versatile 
Dathk, has aa ankle injury 
which wjB keep him oat of the 
World Cup. 

Bollaad, the youngest member 
of tire squad, has been kept on 
the beach for bv matches 
against West Germany and 
Spain. There are a few training 
games to come, two against 
Canada at Bisham Abbey next 
weekend end onr against 
Australia at Picketts Lock an 
September 30, and BoDand may 
come in at some stage of these 
matches at right back. Bat an 
injury woald nice England to 
bring him on during tire World 
Cup when he has not been given 
tire necessary experience. 

There could be a further 
difficulty in the attack if CUft 
does not rao m su fficiently 
from a groin injury. Kerfy, 
however, is pitying better t han 
ever at centre fin ward. 

Bank to back 
European Cap 

The All-England Women’s 
Hockey Association have an- 
nounced that tire National West- 
minster Bank have agreed to 
sponsor tbe European Oq> to be 
held at Picketts Lode, ItadoD, 
early next September (Joyce 
Whitehead writes). 

As part of tire bank’s commu- 
nity support programme, they 
are to provide £*,000 for tire 
event which is to be staged on 
tire new Soperturf pitch. Twelve 
European nations will take put 
wwIimKiH England, Tfu» Ntftwv 
lam** and West Germany, the 
gold and silver medal winners 
respectively at the 1984 Olym- 
pic Games in Los Angeles.

MOTOR RACING 


Mansell driving towards 
his great ambition 


During the next few da ys 
Nigel Mansell will be aiming to 
exercise his golf dubs as 
his post-Portugal therapy «ter- 
his victory in Estoril on Sunday, ■ 
which was brilliant tboireh sap- 
ping of nervous energy- To take 
□ait in tbe Open championship 
one day is his second greatest 
ambition* and as his ha ndicap 

etigEs ever doser to par it seems 
a not unreasonable hope. _ .. 

In foe meantime, his prime 
aim. of course, is to comjdrte 
the unfinifoed teuonfeK .ot 

Hfnriiioft the 1986 drivers 
world champimtriiip, souiefomg 

which he would dearly love, to 

do m the rarefied airof Mc^co 
Gty in three weeks time rather 
t han have to bear the tension 
«nH uncertainty aO the way to 
tbe final round in Adelaide a 
fortnight later. . , _ 

He now has just two nvals for 
foe crown — Nelson Piquet and 
Alain Prost - and cmly Piquet 
has the luxury of bang able to 
count every point be cams in the 
remaining two ra ces. Nme 

ints are awarded fbr a win. roc 

r second place, four for third, 

three for fourth, two for fifth 
and one for . sixth. But the 
championship is decided by the 
1 1 best performances from 16 

CHAMPKMSMP P0MT5 
AFTER MEXICAN OP 


By John Blunsdea 

races, and Mansell — like Prost 
— has scored 1 1 -times already. 
Mansell's two. lowest scores to 
date are two and three points, so ' 
a win in Mexico wit] add only 
seven points to his present score 
of 7a 

This, however, will be sufj 
fidentto make him undisputed 
champion. Proa must subtract 
one point (his lowest score) 

■ from anything he earns from, 
each of foe remaining races. 

With Piquet able to. count 
nine points for_a wxn^ m AO- 
daide. but Prost onTy eight, it 
will be seen from the table 
below that Mansell can sen 
leave Mexico as the new cham- 
pion if he finishes only soond 

there, provided neither Piquet 
nor Prost wins foe race, while 
third place in Mexico will be 
sufficient, provided Piquet and 
Prost both finish behind him. In 
foe event of a tie, preference is 
siven to the driver with the most 
ftret. places, then foe most 
seconds, and so on. 

for all three drivers, and in' 
pa rticular their teams of en- 
gineers, the high altitude of 
Mexico City poses specialprob- 
lems, notably that of containing 


turbo tempera lures, in the thin 
air. Amongst foe established 
grand pnx circuits, only 
Kyalamu in South Africa, offers 
a similar challenge, and as foe 
teams have not raced there since 
■ April 1984 (since when turbo 
development has continued 
apace) there is no recent form to 
draw upon. 

However, with so much at 
stake, an up-to-date test session 
either there or at some other 
high altitude venue (not nec- 
essarily a race circuit) could 
prove invaluable, not that it 
would provide all foe answers. 

The main problem with Mex- 
ico City is that the track has not 
been used for grand prix racing 

since 1970 and it has recently 

undergone major reconstruc- 
tion. To all intents and pur- 
poses, therefore, it is a new 
circuit and. as with the 
Hungaroring — where the first 
. Hungarian Grand Prix took 
place last month — precisely 
what is required to be compet- 
itive there will not be revealed 
until the track is opened for 
official practice and qualifying. 
By then, foe thinness of foe air 
may well turn out to be the least 
of everybody’s problems.

BASKETBALL 


Officials in upset over fees 


No start to any basketball 
season would be complete with- 
out its share of controversy. The 
start of die current Carisberg 
Tiatinp ai league n» m Pf'gn at foe~ 
weekend was no different with 
foe o fficiate this time providing 
foe main talking point at Reg 

Vardy Sunderland. 

Conn Gerrard, England’s 
leading lefet ee, and Steve Field, 
tbe umpire, remised to come out 
for tbe second half of tbe match 
against Hesel Hempstead 
Royals until they had been given 
their fees and expenses in cash.. 
They bad received cheques be- 
fore the game but it was not 
until Jim Qegboni, the Sunder- 
land rhafrnym, - had “paid 
Gerrard, field and the match 
commissioner, Paul Lawrence, 
their £2 1 match fees in cash that 
foe second half got under way 10 
minutes late. 

The offici ate refused to com- 
ment on their actions hot 
Sunderland, who have com- 
plained to tbe English Basket 
Ball Association, are furious. 
Dave Ekferidn, the club’s coach, 
sajd^Lawrence was waving the 
rule book at ns and saying they 
must be paid in cash, but rule 
S-l on page 59 dearly states than 
‘where possible the fees should 


By Nicholas Harlmg 

be paid in cash.’ This was not 
possible on this particular night 
because we have a ne w ad- 
mission system at foe Crowtree 
Leisure Centre, whereby no cash - 
can be advanced from gate 
receipts on the night.*’ 

Unfortunately for Sunder- 
land. there was no consolation 
for them on court as Heme! 
Hempstead, who had suc- 
cumbed limply at Bracknell in 
midweek, won 110-98. The 
main di ffer ence was foal 
Sunderland were without the 
injured American. Jim Bran- 
don, while Heme! included Har- 
vey Knuckles. . - another- 
American who has just returned, 
to them from Belgium. Knuck- 
les, his compatriot, Steve Hale, 
who has just joined the dub, and 
Steve Keenan, Hemd’s new 
player/coach, were all 
outstanding. 

Down on the south coast, the 
financially-stricken Solent 
Stars, showed four heart by 
tran s f orming a 47-44 halftime 
deficit into .victory by 119-100 
; over newly-promoted Derby. 
Solent have a new player/bosch 
in Paul Philp, who seems to 
have acquired an interesting 
.new American in the 6ft 7in 


Deora Marsh. He scored only 
nine points in foe first haft but 
ail -loose afterwards io finish 
with 43-**Like many Americans 
he just seemed out to impress," 
said Philp. “so at halftime 1 
said to him, don't impress; just 
play. And he did.** 

In the other game. Kingston, 
despite being without Martin 
Clarice whose reinstatement as 
an amateur with FI BA had not 
come through in time, crushed 
HomeS pare Bolton 109-66, with 
Kenny Scon, a new signing, 
helping himself to 16 points. 
Clarke's clearance in' tithe to 
play- at OUderdale tomorrow, is 
bad news for the newly-pro- 
moted Yorkshire dub. 

Sharp Manchester United, 
who have yet to start foe 
domestic season, have two 
doubts for tonight's European 
Cup match against Sporting 
Lisbon at Stretford. Jeff Jones, 
who has a groin strain, and 
Robbie Peers, who twisted an 
ankle in Sunday’s 88-80 friendly 
defeat against Murray Inter- 
national Metals Edinburgh, may 
both miss foe preliminary 
round, first leg tie. Jason 
Fogarty, who broke his jaw two 
weeks ago. is definitely out 


AMERICAN FOOTBALL 


Buccaneer Wonsley walks tall 


New York (AP) - Nathan 
Wonsley was considered too 
small for the National Foofoall 
League when the league was 
conducting its college draft. On 
Sunday, be proved to be the big 
man in Tampa Bay’s attack as 
tbe Bucc a n e ers won their first 
game of the season, defeating 
tbe Detroit Lions 24-20. 

Wonsley has two brothers in 
foe NFL; George; with . the 
Indianapolis Colts, and Otis, 
with the Washington Redskins. 
All three are runmog-backs. 
When ■ James 'WBder, tbe 


Buccaneers' regular running- 
back, was unable to play because 
of a bruised chest. Wonsley was 
ready. He rushed 18 times for 
138 yards, including touchdown 
runs of 22 and 55 yards, against 
the Lions. 

The victory was the 
Buccaneers' first away success 
since beating Minnesota on 
November 6,1983, and ended a 
19-game losing run. The Bucca- 
neers scored 14 points in- the 
second quarter and ren in the 
third while foe Lions scored 14 
in foe fourth quarter. Wonsley’s 


22-yard run 14 seconds into the 
second quarter gave foe Bucca- 
neers a 7-0 lead and his 55jyard 
run after ten minutes of the 
third quarter put them 24-6 
ahead.

Dave Archer drove the Atlanta 
Falcons 79 yards to the Dallas

Mick Luckhursi kicked an 18-

IHE MOST POPULATED C OUNTRY IN THE WORLD MAKES A CAUTIOUS START ON THE GOLF COURSE 

Driving ambition of the Chinese 


FOOTBALL 


The 


From David Miller, Seoul 


Chinese are winni ng 
niroais at the Asian Games 
faster than you can say ‘Seri- 
ons reappraisal of attitudes to 
western culture’, but at die end 
of the fortnight Clmn Jia- 
who is 19 and from 
Canton, will not be aiwm o 
them. In the first round of the 
golf he hit 92 which left him 
43rd out of 44 competitors. 

Sukanidi Si man, of 
Indonesia, the leader, hit a 
par-72 at the impressive Han. 
>ang Country dub. Chen’s 
score, however, was something 
about which he could be 
pleased, and even more so 
when he went round in 87 
yesterday on the second day. 
His colleague, Zheng Hong- 
Tao. could be even more 
satisfied with 87 plus 85. 

The first golfers of the 
People's Republic were 
competing In their first tour- 
nament after starting the game 
only 18 months ago. This is 
not to say they wfll not be 
winning at St' Andrews or 
Palm Beach in a few years’ 
time at their present rate of 
progress, but for the moment 
golf in the world's most popu- 
lated country is making a 
cautious start. They have 17 
players. 

Four of them have been sent 
to Seoul on a venture heavily 
dependent on sponsorship. 
The Chinese are modernising 
in all directions. Half the cost 
is being borne by the national 
sports council and half by the 
Chung-Sang Hot Springs 
country club in Canton, where 
they are employed as mainte- 
nance workers on the course in 
the morning. In the afternoons 
they practise their swing: a 
happy, relationship between 
socialist foil employment and 
private enterprise. 

There are as yet only four 
golf courses m China, three in 
Canton and one in Beijing. 
Chung-Sang has owners from 
Hong Kong, the other three all 
from Japan. The explorers 
here in Seoul get the chance to 
study technique by caddying. 

It was, it has to be said, not 
an engaging first day for 
beginners, with wind and rain 


gnstinganpredictaMy through 
the pine-covered slopes 
around the hilly course. “They 
are not used to such 
conditions,” said Peter Tang, 
their coach, who is the pro- 
fessional at Chung Sang. With 
some resignation towards the 
elements, be retired to the dnb 
lounge in mid-afternoon to 
await the outcome. It amid 
have been worse: between 
them they managed to par 21 
holes and had only one eight 
and nine sevens. It would be a 
better second day. 

"Until five months ago, they 
had no clnbs or balls mid had 

to borrow from me," Tang 
says. “Then we were fortunate, 
and were provided with spon- 
sored equipment by a US 
manufacturer.” They say you 
have to speculate to accu- 
mulate: shook! golf take oft in 
China, some promotions man- 
ager definitely made a smart 
move. 

Farther sponsorship in 
dothing and footwear, and 
including the first day’s nec- 
essary’ umbrellas, came from 
Japan. Tang, who is from 
Hong Kong, won the PGA tide 
there in 1979 and played that 
year in the World Cap in 
Hawaii. He is enthusiastic 
about his job. 

“Golf in China can only 
move one way," he says. That 
may be somewhat resound- 
ingly obvious, bathe does have 
an unaccountable depth of 
potential materia]. Of his 17 
pupils, nine are girls, bat than 
is no women's event here at the 
Games. He likes teaching 
because it gets him oat of the 
clubhouse in Canton. Besides, 
it will look good on his 
curriculum vitae: Taught Golf 
To China. 

He has a certain oriental 
philosophy. He tried playing 
once in Scotland, in die 
qualifying before an Open at 
Muirfteld: but not again. “Too 
cold," be says. "Don't like 
Scotland. There, you have four 
seasons in one day." And off 
he went in search of his pupils. 
He knows golf in the People's 
Republic will get better. With 
or without him. 



York lie in wait as ChelseW 
play down their problems\ 


Chelsea, their confidence no 
doubt severely bruised by the 6- 
2 pummelling on Saturday ar 
the hands ofiSogingluun Forest, 
Brian Clough’s precocious 
championship contenders, were 
smiling bravely yesterday 
through the pain. John Hollins, 
the manager, refuses to bear any 
alarm bells sounding after' just 
one win in six games. “Crisis?” 
he said. “There was supposed to 
be a crisis here last weekend and 
we won 3-1 at Tottenham. We 
took two steps forward then, 

now we have taken three steps 

back.” 

Hollins, who took his Chelsea 
team away from the scene of the 
devastation yesterday afternoon 
for their Li tile woods Cup sec-

tonight, would not discuss the 
reasons for Chelsea's capitula-

phy and Wood back after injury. 

Hollins could have chosen a 
less vigorous place to convalesce 
than the intimidating arena of 
Bootham Crescent, where York 
City, lying second in the third 
division, have beaten allcomers 
this season. York's Cup exploits 
are legendary, dating from the 
late thirties when in 'one Cup 
run as a third division side they 
beat clubs from all four di- 
visions with a team costing £50, 
to the last two seasons in which 
they reached the FA Cup fifth 
round only to lose, after a replay 
on each occasion, to Liverpool. 
Hollins may have reason to be 
grateful that this competition is 
two-legged. 

They are not the only first 
division side in danger tonight 
of incurring a' first-leg deficit lu 
the seeded draw, which gives 
potential piranhas the chance to 
take a bite at all the bigger fish. 
Manchester City, without a 
manager after the departure of 
Billy McNeill yesterday, could 
be m deep water ai Southend: 


Leicester City, the only firsr t 
division side to go out at this •. 
stage Iasi season, go west to . 
Swansea, the fourth division 
leaders; and Wimbledon are 
asked to assume, rather unnatu- 
rally. the guise of- favourites at 

Cambridge. 

Wimbledon, who were elected 
to the League seven years after 
Cambridge, have not met the 
fourth division -side since their 
Southern League days. John 
Fashanu. who started his career 
at Cambridge but never played 
for the first team, has been 
dropped. Dave Bassett, the 
manager, said: “He hasn't done 
as much training as I would like. 
He's not sharp enough and one 
goal in seven games is not good 
enough- He's under pressure but 
he’s not the only one. I’ve 
dropped Hodges, too. We've got 
to score more goals.” Gordon, a 
summer signing from Swindon, 
plays his first game in place of 
Fash arm. and Fair-weather re- 
places the Welsh international. 
Hodges.

Korea’s illustrious Son receives his prize after 50 years 


From David Miller 
Justice and honour are 
worth Hairing for, even if it 
rakes 50 years: always provid- 
ing. of course, that you survive 
a world war and live that long. 
Son Ki-Chung, a small smil- 
ing. nut-brown South Korean 
of 74. was yesterday a 
contented man. 

The Guinness Book of 
Olympic Records makes no 
mention of him. for fie is 
disguised there as Son Ki-Tei, 


winner of the marathon in the 
1936 Olympic Games in Ber- 
lin, with the alleged national- 
ity of Japan. Yesterday, at the 
private residence of the West 
German ambassador here, be 
finally caught up with a piece 
of history which he had been 
denied. 

In 1936 a right-wing Athens 
newspaper - whose owner was 
assassinated two years ago — 
had sent to the Berlin Olympic 
Committee a soldier's helmet 


dated 600 BC, and intended as 
a prize for the most prestigious 
athletics event, the marathon. 
The IOC of course, permits 
no prize other than its medal, 
and the helmet was never 
presented, residing in a 
museum. 

During the war the museum 
was bombed: an American 
soldier, rather than a Russian 
as it happened, found it and it 
was returned to . the West 
Germans, once more residing 


in a museum. When the Ko- 
rean Olympic Committee was 
founded in 1947, after libera- 
tion from Japanese coloniza- 
tion, they applied to the 
Germans on Son's behalf for 
the helmet, which today is said 
to be worth £50,000. T&© West 
German Olympic committee 
finally agreed to hand it over, 
and a presentation was made 
to Son at the recent grand prix 
athletics meeting in Berlin 
which marked die 50th 


anniversay of the Games. The 
ceremony was re-enacted yes- 
terday for the benefit of the 
Korean people. 

-Son said yesterday that be 
felt the honour more for his 
country than for hims elf: that 
looking back on the Games in 
Berlin, he could never have 
believed his little country 
would one day build such a 
stadium as the (me at which he 
marvelled then and where he 
won his medal-.

Barcelona, the kingpins of 
Spanish football, are to play a 
Pat Jennings All-Star Xt at 
Windsor Pare on December 3. 

The venture, under the auspices 
ofCo-operarion North, with the 
TSB as the major sponsor, has 
been undertaken as. a tribute to 
Jennings for his contribution to 
British football in general and to 
the game in Northern Ireland in 
particular. 

Ou tlining p lans at a Press 
conference, Mir T. P. Brand, the 
chairman of Co-operation 
North — a non-political, non- 
denominationa] organization 
committed to breaking down 
barriers of misunderstanding 
and mistrust in Ireland — said it 
was die biggest project under- 
taken by the organization. He 
o paid tribute to the outstand- 
ing contribution made by Jen- 
nings over a period of 22 years. 

“We are delighted to be identi- 
fied with the one man who. 
more than most, is a symbol of 
dignity and sportsmanship m 
Northern Ireland." 

Derek Dougan, an inter- 
national colleague of Jennings 
and special adviser to Co- 
operation North, intimated that 
negotiations with Barcelona and 
Terry Venables, their manager, 
had been “virtually concluded" 
and that he had no doubts about 
the appearance of the Spanish 
club in Belfast in December.

42 goals for Everton in the 
English first division last sea-

shot on goal against Sevilla 
before being replaced by U rbano 
Ortega who netted Barcelona's 
82nd-minute winner. 

In contrast. Real Madrid, 
level on points with Barcelona 
but trailing on goal average, 
hammered Real Beds 6-2, with 
World Cup forwards Hugo San- 
chez, of Mexico, Emilio 
Butragueno, of Spain, and the 
Argentine Jorge Vaidano, shar- 
ing the goals. Sanchez scored 
three, including a penalty, and 
now has eight goals in five 
matches this season. 

Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, the 
West German international for-

scoring feat in the Italian league 
with three goals in Inter Milan's

Munster start short 
visit with a victory 


1 Gary Lineker, the England 
international, was a notable 
exception on a weekend when 
World Cup forwards showed 
their best form in the European 
leagues. Lineker, who was top 
scorer in Mexico with six goals, 
was substituted on Sunday as 
Barcelona . struggled to beat 
Sevilla 1-0 at home and stay top 
of the Spanish league. 

Some Spanish newspapers have 
reported that Lineker and Mark 
Hughes, of Wales, have been 
struggling to fit in with their new

maximum points after two 
matchesJSmpofi are the other. 
They were promoted at the end 
of fast season and ..matched 
Juventus by winning 1-0 at 
AsatiL 

It was a World Cup defender, 
Karl-Heinz Foerster, of West 
Germany, who preserved 
Marseille's unbeaten record in 
the French league. He followed 
up Jean-Francois Domerque's 
free-kick five minutes from time 
to salvage a 2-2 draw at Lille. 

Bordeanxjoined Marseille on 
15 points after 10 matches with 
a 3-0 win over Le Havre, with 
the Yugoslav twins, Zoran and 
Zlalko Vujovic, scoring two of 
the goals. The veteran sweeper, 
Leonard Specht, scored the 
third. 


New look for Italy

The Irish tourists found the 
National Merit Table cham- 
pions. Gloucester, awkward but 
clumsy opposition and were 
able to begin ibeir short visit in 
winning style despite same 
faltering moments. 

It look Munster 15 minutes to 
open their scoring when their 
scrum half. Bradley, crossed for 
a try after seizing the ball at 
halfway and swerving past two 
tackles. Keyes convened. 

Five minutes later 
dropped a goal with a 
high kick from a scrum on 
Gloucester's 22 metre line. He 
was on target again three min- 
utes later when Gloucester were 
penalized for collapsing a scrum 
and he kicked a perfect penalty. 

The first kickable penalty 
award to Gloucester, given 


against their captain. Lem ha a. 
for barging in a hneout, was 
converted by the full bade. 
Marment. from 30 yards. He 
was off target with two other 
penalty kicks in the first half and 
the sides changed ends with the 
tourists 12-3 ahead. 

Immediately on the restart 
Munster were again penalized in 
a lineout and Marment capital- 
ized with a further penalty. 

However, Munster put them- 
selves out of reach with two tries 
in 10 minutes. First the full 
back. Lenahan, went over, after 
receivings pass from O'Kelly on 
the line. Keyes missed the 
conversion. Then the Irish inter- 
national centre, Finn, scored 
under the posts, thanks to a 
superb pass from Brosnahan. 
and Keyes convened. 

A penalty from Keyes put the 
provincial side into an unassail- 
able position but in the final 10 
minutes Gloucester were 
gran red the room for two 
magnificent tries.

By Hugh Taylor 

Celtic and Rangers may be 
the bookmakers' favourites to 
contest the Skol Cup final, tou a 
contrast looms over the size of 
the problems the dub's must 
surmount before they can hope 
to win their semi-finals at 
Hampden. 

For instance, Celtic, who play 
Motherwell tonight, have only 
one pang of anxiety. “I have to 
be honest about it,” said David 
Hay, the manager, “and say that 
our main danger is compla- 
cency.” Although Celtic go into 
their match with confidence 
lifted by a 5-1 victory over 
Hibernian, and Motherwell 
have the formidable task of 
trying to pick themselves up 
after losing four goals to Heart 
of Midlothian, the players have 
been told to be on guard. 

“We cannot afford to under- 
estimate Motherwell as we did 
two years ago in a Scottish Cup 
semi-final,” added the manager. 
“Then we needed two games to 
win through after a l-l draw in 
the first match ” 

However, adding to 
Motherwell's misery after their 
trouncing on Saturday is ifk fact 
that sevaai regulars are injured. 
It is difficult to visualise 
Motherwell stopping opponents 
whose raiding is spectacular and 
whose firepower is awesome. 

Rangers are freed with more 
serious problems than those of 
their rivals as they prepare for 
tomorrow night's semi-final 
with Dundee United, an event 
they had been hoping would set 
the seal cm their revival- The 
mqjor worry is the fitness of 
Souness. the inspirational 
player-manager who was badly 
missed when the club's run of 
success came to an end with a 1- 
0 defeat by Dundee on Saturday, 
and who may also miss the 
semi-final. 

A statement from Jim 
McLean, the manager of 
United, must also have brought 
a tinge of worry yesterday to the 
Ibrox dressing room. “For a 
speQ, we were really magnificent 
out there." he said of his team's 
5-1 win over Hamilton. As a 
melancholy McLean has been 
known to fine his players for a 
win that did not please his 
appetite for perfection, this 
grand eloquent phrase can be 
reckoned a shrewd flash of 
gamesmanship.

Henderson called up 

By Tan McLancfalan 


Gordon Henderson, the 22- 
y car-old 6fz Sin lock forward 
from Preston Lodge, has been 
called into lhe Edinburgh team 
to free Japan this afternoon. He 
joins Kenny Wilson, 
Boroughmuir's No 8. in the 
second row. 

Edinburgh's problem in this 
department mounted at the 
weekend when the original 
choices. Hamilton and Millar, 
of Heriot's. were injured and the 
reserves. Jeremy and Charles 


Richardson, were both sent off | 
at Bradford. 

Further injuries to Scott Has- 
tings. the centre, who has just 
relumed from a three-week 
absence, and Stuart Johnston, 
the scrum half, mean that Peter 
Hewitt comes in on the wing, 
EXivid Johnston moves to centre 
and Julian Scott moves into 
scrum half. Gordon Forbes, 
Donald Macdonald and Clive 
Millar fill the vacant spaces on 
the bench. 


Hayes, has rejected a £25.000 
transfer to second division 
Huddersfield on the eve of a 
Littiewoods Cup tie between the 
teams at Highbury. 

• Reading’s winger, Andy Rog- 
ers, who almost died after 
swallowing his tongue at Swan- 
sea last season, has asked for a 
transfer after losing his first- 
team place whh the second 
division newcomers. Rogers has 
been on the Elm Park sidelines 
for a fortnight following Paul 
Cano ville's £65,000 arrival from 
Chelsea, and the return of 
midfielder, Jerry Williams, from 
injury. The 29-year-okl Rogers 
joined Reading in a £15,000 
move from Plymouth a year 
ago.

PANTOMIME WARFARE (Radio 
4. 830pm) recalls a 
diplomatic cn&s- of the 

Edwardian era that has a very 
modem ring. Smarting under 
their defeat by the Japanese, 
the Russian navy began seeing 
the yellow peril everywhere, 
even in the North Sea. On 
October 22. 1904 four . 

Russian battleships of the Baltic 
fleet fired on British trawlers 
fishing on the Dogger Bar* 
under the misapprehension 
that they were Japanese torpedo 
boats. Almost comic m 
retrospect the incident ca u sed a 
public outrrae and brought 
Britain and Russia to the brink of 
war. James Turtle's crisp 
documentary is a reminder that 

superpower confrontations 
did not Start with the Cold War.

History made in 
Madras with 
second tied Test 





By Marais Williams 

Madras 1986 must now be a great day for thfi-Rpuiners’ 
added to Brisbane I960 in_.ufHorebyiakingdhe other five 
cricket's annals after ihe firsi for a total -of seven in the 


Test between India and 
Australia at the Chepauk Sta- 
dium ended in a tie yesterday, 
only the second time that the 
game's most thrilling and 
rarest result has occurred in a 
Test match. 

As on the previous occa- 
sion. the final wicket yes- 
terday foil to the penultimate 
ball of the match. 

The players in the final act 
of the drama, staged before 
25.000 enraptured spectators, 
were India's No. 11. 
Manindcr Singh, beiurbaned 
and more renowned for his 
left-arm spin bowling, and 
Greg Matthews. Australia's 
emerging all-rounder, beloved 
of crowds Down Under for his 
punk hairstyles, love of pop 
music but above all for his 
lively and combative ap- 
proach to cricket. 

India were still four runs 
short of their target of 348 off • 
87 overs when Maninder 
came in. He survived the last 
two balls of Bright's final over 
and then Shasiri. the Indian 
\ ice-captain, scored a two and 
a single to bring the scores 
level and leave Maninder 
three balls for death, glory, or 
mere heroism for saving the 
match. 


match. 

The remarkable finish had 
been made possible by a 
typically enterprising move 
from the Australian captain. 
Allan Border, who had sur- 
prised everyone outside the 
dressing-room by ^ declaring 
his side's second innings at 
1 70 for five.before the start of 
- play and - thus .leaving India 
the whole day in which to 
pursue victory. Ail this, of 
course, came after Australia 
had piled up 574 for seven 
in their first innings and India

had been threatened with the 
follow-on. and - even, an in- 
nings defeat, before their own 
cajnain. .Kapil Dev. had . 
scored a spariding century to 
eliminate either possibility. 

India were given a splendid 
start yesterday by Gavaskar 
and Srikkanth; by lunch they 
were 94 for one and by tea 
(hey had reached 193 for two. 
still needing 155 from 30 
overs. . 

Gavaskar played his accus- 
tomed role of anchorman with 


Hemmed in bv fielders,- a fine innings of 90, sharing a 
Maninder safely. blocked his partnership. of 55 with the 


first ball from Matthews, but 
he was leg- before to the next. 
A match in which the pen- 
dulum of fortune had several 
limes already swung seem- 
ingly decisively from one side 
to the other reached its dra- 
matic climax. 

Matthews had taken five 
wickets in an innings with his 
off spinners for tbe second 
time in the contest and the 
left-armer Bright had made it 


explosive Srikkanth. whose 39 
ended with a catch on the 
boundary attempting a second 
six. and adding 103 with 
Amamath. who made 51, for 
the second wicket. 

Gavaskar was fourth out, 
after tea. at 251 and two runs 
later the free-scoring Kapil fell 
for only a single to an in- 
discreet shot off Matthews; 
but India pressed on for

By Stuart Jones, Football Correspondent 


The break-up of foe mar- 
riages between clubs and man- 
agers has become more 
amicable, superficially at 
least since 1982. In February 
of foal year foe Football 
League chairmen first -put 
forward the idea of “a 
gentlemen’s agreement”. 


only two complaints have 
been registered with the 
League in foe last four years. 
The first concerned the case of 
Roy McFarland, a former 
England international, who 
was employed by Bradford 
City not only as fo«r manager 


tern of behaviour, and are 
expected to offer Manchester 
City £100,000 as financial 
dispensation for foe remain- 
der of Billy McNeill's con- 
tract. The alternative, is to lose 
either :foeir newly- appointed 
manager or even more money 


but also as a player. He joined- - in foe shape of a fine. 


The following year it b<6 Dert)y bounty who were sur-

In one sense, the ploy has 
worked. Although managers

after failing to reach agree-

therefore, has not worked. 
They attempted to bring hon-

characteristics that cannot be

and managers. However, all 
that has been achieved is the

An obvious target, 
gentlemen's aggreements not-

Royle, a former player and 
now manager of Oldham Ath-

ers. But Royle may decide he 
has some unfinished buslbess 
at Oldham and. anyway, it is 
doubtful whether City could
