Mr Neil Kinnock, the La-

terday that a Labour 
government would not only 
scrap nuclear weapons in Brit- 
ain and close down US 
nuclear bases, but h would

using British airfields.

views that he had told Presi-

wish in any circumstances for 
the US to use nuclear weapons 
for Britain's protection. 

He said on BBC television's 
This Week, Next Week: “If we 
are not prepared to use the 
weapon system ourselves we 
certainly would not be asking 
anyone else to jeopardize 
themselves by the use of that 
nuclear weapon. I think it 
would be immoral to do so." 

The Labour leader also spelt 
out in greater detail the im- 
plications of Labour’s anti- 
nuclear policy. Mindful of the 
employment projects around 
the US installations, Labour 
will not dose aO American 
bases in Britain capable of 
being used by nud ear-armed

The Government is feeing 
mourning pressure to control 
the spiralling cost of buying a 
borne. The results of an 
investigation by The Times 
suggest that, as the rate of 
mortgage arrears and re- 
possessions continues to rise, 
there is an urgent need to: 

• Make the rules governing 
the amount financial institu- 
tions can lend more stringent. 

• Introduce legislation to 
make “gazumping" illegal. 

• End the current harsh and 
haphazard debt collection 
practices, and adopt a more 
humane system. 

• Give increased financial 
support to independent ad- 
visory bodies, such as the 
Birmingham Settlement 
Money Advice Centre. 

• Curb unscrupulous second 
mortgage firms and com- 
panies which exploit 

• Revitalize a government 
scheme, designed to help first- 
lime buyers, which is now out 
iof date. 

Fierce competition in the 
mortgage market has led to a 
disturbing increase in re- 
possessions and arrears. Re- 
possessions increased from 
10.870 in 1974, to 16,770 in 
1985, up by 54 per cent 
If arrears alone are taken 
into account, the picture is 
much more alarming. Accord-

A call to end the open 
arming of policemen at air- 
pons threatened by terrorism 
is to be debated by senior 
officers at the annual con- 
ference of the Police 
Superintendents’ Association, 
which opens at' Harrogate

return to the traditional image 
of the unarmed policeman. 

The call comes in a motion 
to be put on Wednesday. It is

another eight forces in the 
North-east but will go before

The PSA, which employs 
26.000 people and administers

has been the subject of fre-

allegations in recent years. 

Between 1979 and 1983 
admitted fraud losses totalled 
£860,000, but a report by the

Committee in 1984 claimed 

nine building contractors and 
a former employee of the now- 
defunct Greater London 
Council will appear in court 
facing 88 charges concerning 
alleged bribes in return for

In September last year a

By Hugh Clayton 
A standard excess charge. of 
£20 should be imposed on 
motorists who fail to “pay and

foe Audit Commission says. 

Most councils demand excess 
charges of less than £10 and 
many motorists never bother . 
to pay.

that only about two-thirds of

Ulster link 
on Stalker 

ByOtte Politkal Reporter 

A Conservative MP claimed 
yesterday foat new evidence of 
a ; -“Northern Ireland 
connection” in the false allega- 
tions made against Mr John 
Stalker raised questions about 
bow much confidence can be 
attached 10 the Sampson re- 
port on foe Royal Ulster 
Constabulary. - 
Mr Cedi Franks, MP for 
Barrow and Furness, sent 
documentary evidence to Mr 
Douglas Hurd, Home Sec- 
retary, last Friday which 1 
showed that foe criminal who 
made the allegations against 
Mr Stalker was also working 
for the RUC as an informant , 
against the IRA. 

Mr Franks said yesterday 
that it was “incredible" and 
“inconceivable” that foe 
connection had not been 
picked up by Mr Colin Samp- 
son, the chief constable of 
West Yorkshire, in his sepa- 
rate inquiry into foe Stalker 

However, that inquiry, con- 
ducted by seven senior police 
officers with six support staff 
and costing £250,000, had 
dismissed any “Northern Ire- 
land connection”. 

The allegations led to Mr 
Stalker being suspended from 
his post as deputy chief con- 
stable of Greater Manchester 
last May, when be was in- ; 
vestigafing the RUCs alleged ! 
shool-to-kfll policy in North- : 
era Ireland. 

According to The Observer 
yesterday, the criminal, David 
Bertiestein, was tried in 
September 1984 alongside a 
Mr Mark Klapish, for whom 
Bertiestein had worked and 
who was charged with running 
a fraudulent turn and malrinp 
a deal with the IRA. 

The court was cleared when 
Bertiestein pleaded guilty, it 
was then revealed that 
Bertiestein was a paid infor- 
mant, and his sentence was 
cut to two and a half years. 
Bertiestein died suddenly of a 
heart attack in prison in 
Marcb 1985. 

Mr Franks has now renewed 

his call ibr a full independent 
judicial inquiry imo foe

report about cash flows, which 
is to be published on Thure-

The commission says that j 
the amount of money ha n d l ed 
by councils is so vast that 
enormous waste can be gen- _ 
erated if several of them 
indulge in a few minor in- 
efficient practices. The collec-

Councils are less worried

because they do not risk being

1 The commission’s survey 
suggests that councils could 
have secured £50 million last 
year by collecting rate income 
a fortnight earlier than they 
actually did- Late collection 
does not just delay foe arrival 
of foe money, it also prevents 
councils from investing it to 
gain interest 

That argument was at foe

The commission says that 
there are many ways for 
councils to make the best use 
of their cadi, including bank- 
ing cheques as soon as they are 
received and claiming all gov- 
ernment grants as soon as they 
become available. 

It suggests that all councils 
should cut the new standard 
excess charge from £20 to £1,0 
for motorists who pay m a few 
days. The survey shows foal 
more excess charges are paid if 
a reduced rate is offered for 
prompt payment. It advises 
councils that a cut-rate offer is 
a good way to encourage 
payment that could use fully

In July last year. Lord Lane, Lord Chief Justice, 
cafled^for urgent action against drug traffickers. He 
said: “There see m to be few signs of urgency. How 
many moreyears.wfl] go by, how many more children 
and young persons will have to die degrading 
before action is taken?” Today, a survey by The Times 
discloses that still not enough is being done. 

to match the increase in drug 
offences. While the number in 
the drug squad rose by a mere 
four between 1974 and 1984, 
the total of drug attests rose 
sharply from 470 to 1,117 
during the same period. 

A similar pattern emerges 
from Glasgow, where the 
number of drug-related cases 
in the Strathclyde area* hag 
nearly tripled fa the past five 
years. Its drug squad was 
increased by 11 officers in 
September 1984 to a current 
total of 30. “The flow of drugs 
into Strathclyde is still rising 
sharply," Supt Angus Ken- 
nedy said: “But we are work- 
ing hard to contain it." 

In rural areas such as Devon 
and Cornwall, which has a 
drug squad consisting of 22 
officers (up from 1 9 in 1978), a 
police spokesman said that the 
squad would have been much 
bigger if more officers had 
been available. 

Tbe customs service, too,, 
has felled to get the extra men,' 
which its members say they 
need. The latest figures show 
that the force took on a mere 
185 extra men this year, 
compared with the 1,000, 
which their union, the Society 
of Civil and Public Servants, 
demanded. The force; which 
comprises some 6,900 officers 
in the ports plus 262 specialist 
investigators intodrug-related 

offences, is 

an influx of 2,000,000 cars and 
20,000,000 passengers a year. 

Commenting on the results 
of the survey, Mr Jim Craigen, 
Labour MP for Mary hill and 
joint secretary of the all-party 
group on drug abuse, said that 
tbe Government had “to fan* 
op to the very real need for 
extra police manpower". 

But, faced with the latest 
gfoomy predictions of a dra- 
matic increase in cocaine 
smuggling from Smith Amer- 
ica, its priority must be to 
pour more funds into the 
customs service. 

Mr Charles Kennedy, SDP 
member feu* Ross. Cromarty

spokesman for health and 
social services, said that it was

that “a Saatchi and Saai rtii

Mr Tom Sackvflle, Conser- 
vative MP for Bolton West 
and a senior member of foe

was being done by the Gov- 
ernment to pay for vitally 
needed equipment at Britain’s 
airports. More sniffer dogs-

ogy was required to get a real

BR clamp 
on fare 

By Rodney Cowl on 
Transport Correspondent 

British Rail is extending 
measures to deal with pas- 
sengers found to be travelling 
without a ticket. 

From next Sunday, anyone 
travelling during ' off-peak 
times without a ticket will not 
be allowed to pay a con- 
cessionary fare to foe train 
guard or tbe ticket inspector. 
Instead, he or she will be 
charged the much more 
expensive standard single fare. 

The system has been in use 
for some time in Scotland and 
the west of England. A spokes- 
man for British Rail described 
foe extension as “a revenue 
protection exercise" 

He said that loss of revenue 
through people travelling 
without tickets, or not paying 
foe correct fare, ran into lens 
of millions of pounds a year. 
He said that if a passenger 
travelling without a ticket had 
a good reason for doing so. for 
example because foe ticket 
office at the station had been 
closed, he or she would be 
issued with a concessionary 

For a passenger making a 
single journey foe new system 
will not add to the costs. 
However, for someone intend- 
ing to make a return journey 
that would have qualified for a 
concessionary fare, it will 
mean a significant additional

Women who struggle to

manufacturers of two new

With foe help of foe 
Discretest kit, which went on

curately when fertile eggs -will 
be released and will foes have 
24 hours during which fertility 
is at its peak. 

A spokesman for tbe manu- 
facturers claim this method of 
predicting fertility was much 
superior to classic tem-

“Charts . can indicate foe 
release of an egg only after it 
has already happened, which

More girls 
than boys 

- Giris are more likdy than 
boys to smoke, according to a 
report published today. 

A questionnaire involving 
6,600 pupils in Welsh second- 
ary schools found more than 
one in five of the girls smoked, 
compared with one in seven of 
foe boys. Tbe figures rose 
among older girls, with one in 
three fifth-year girls smoking. 

While young pupils 'were

But mod smokers and non-

the habil was likely to damage 
health, according to foe sur- 
vey, the first of its kind 
conducted in Britain. • 
Regular smokers became, 
increasingly common after 1 3, 
with more than-a quarter of 13 
to 16-year-olds claiming they 
did their smoking- “m or

The report - Youth and 
Smoking, -was compiled by 
Heartbeat Wales, an organiza- 
tion set up with government 
funding to improve health 
education in one of foe worst 
regions for heart disease. 

Smoking by parents, 
particularly lathers, was a 
significant factor in children 
taking up the habit A much 
higher proportion of children 
who did not like school or who 
were under-achievers in foe 
classroom were smokers, the 
report says. 

It rails for tougher enforce-

Solicitors 9 case recognized 

By On- Legal Affairs Correspondent 

The granting of Imited 
tights for solicitors to appear 
in simple crown, court cases 
was mooted for the first time 
by the chairman of the Bar at 
the weekend. 

Addressing the *nm»i con- 
ference, Mr Robert Alexan- 
der, QC, accepted that there 
were arguments in favour of 
solicitors being allowed to take 
some crown court cases. 

One possibility, he said, was 
a “licensing" system con- 
ducted by c i rcu i t judges and 
magistrates. They would de- 
ride which solicitors should 
have the extended rights, 
ensuring that it was “the 
competent solicitor advocate 
who gained access to the 
courts , he said. 

“I do not believe many 
would wish a situation to 
develop where people could do 

advocacy .as an occasional 

One argnmest in favour of 
sofidtors taking crown court 
cases is that they have been 
with the dient from the start, 
whereas barristers tend to 
come in at the last moment 
But that argument would lose 
much of its force if solicitors 
organized their work so that 
crown coot advocates “only 
became mvolved at the crown 
court stage and bad no prior 
dealings with tbe client". 

The whole issue is mm 
being examined by a joint 
committee on the legal pro- 
fession set up by both 

Recently, however, Sir Alan 
Leslie, immediate past presi- 
dent of the Law Society, also 
put forward a proposal for 
e xtending crown court ad- 
vocacy rights to only a limited 

group _ of solicitors, those 
specializing in liti g ati o n. 

The Bar chairman stepped 
- short of conceding the case for 
granting advocacy rights to 
solicitors. . ... 

There was no certai n ty ft 
would be cheaper to have a 
solicitor both preparing the 
case and taking it in court, 
rather than employing two 
lawyers, becanse solicitors had 
higher overheads, he said. 

He added that tbe crown 
courts provided valuable train- 
ing for young barristers and it 
would be “unfortunate" if 
solicitors took all the straight- 
forward cases and left the Bar 
with those that were a “nui- 
sance, under-prepared or ba- 
sically uneconomic'*. 

He emphasized, however, 
that any extension of crown 
court rights should not apply 
to the government lawyers. 

Even if an individual did 
bring proceedings, he might 
decide not to continue them — 
although it would be in the 
public interest to do so, the 
judge end. 

That was happening more 
and more in industrial dis- 
putes. A company was granted 
a court order to stop industrial 
action but then had second 
thoughts because of concern 
that the situation would be 
made worse, so it would hold 
back from enforcing its court 

The result was that “blatant 
breaches of the injunction go 
unpunished", he said. That 
could be against tbe public 
interest and could bring .foe 
law “info contempt by creat- 
ing the impression that court 
orders can be ignored". 

• Present proposals to re- 
form the legal profession 
could mean rougher justice fin- 
foe less fortunate and higher 
costs, foe chairman of the 
British Legal Association. Mr 
Lewis Diamond told 

Proposals to break down foe 
distinctions between foe two 
branches of foe profession 
might sweep away a “superb 
and flexible system". 

He added: “There is foe 
possibility that tbe large body 
of experts represented by the 
Bar, win be snapped up by the 
few mammoth-size solicitors’ 
firms for their diems and will 
no longer be available to 
ordinary people" 

What would be left, he said, 
would be only “an upper range

scoffs at idea 
of coalition 
with Alliance 


Power-sha ring pact rejected • 

calls for 

Mr Roy Hattersley yes- 
terday contemptuously re- 
jected any possibility of the 
Labour Party entering into a 
coalition with the Alliance if 
the next general election pro- 
duces a hung parliament. 
Labour’s deputy leader told 

a rally at Blackpool: “Co- 
alition is wrong in principle. 
The Labour Party could not 
and would not enter into such 

an arrangement in any 
drcuro stances. No coalition 
with the Liberals. No coalition 
with the SDP. No coalition 

with the so-called Alliance.'" 

His unequivocal statement 
was in response to the speech 
by Dr David Owen to the SDP 
conference in Harrogate when 
be said either Labour or the 
Conservatives would be 
forced to enter into coalition 
raiifR with the Alliance it as he 
predicted, no party gained an 
overall Commons majority. 

Mr Hattersley, accused Dr 
Owen of “posturing” and said 
the idea of a coalition was a 
public relations device for the 
Alliance. By talking as if such 
a union were possible it 
fraudulently associated itself 
with die prospect of power. 

“At the moment. Dr Owen 
could not even form a co- 
alition with the Liberals,” Mr 
Hattersley added mockingly. 

Mr Neil Kinnock also in- 
sisted yesterday he would not 
rely on the Alliance for the 
purposes of a coalition or deal. 
If Labour did not have an 
overall majority “there would 
be no purpose, in terms of our 
programme and much more 
im portantly in terms of the 
interest of the country, in 

trying to do deals when the 
course is set”. • 

Even in the event of a hung 
parliament with Labour as the 
biggest party, Mr Hattersley 
insisted the Queen’s Speech 
opening the next parliament 
would consist of items taken 
from the Labour manifesto. 

“Does Dr Owen really be- 
lieve that we would negotiate 
those promises away in order 
to gain his support? Does, he 
really imagine that our beliefh 
are for sale and can be bought 
with his handful of votes!? 

Dr Owen's prescription, 

munlinM “mhhlins” CO- 

a coalition of the lowest 
common denominator. 

“The Queen’s Speech would 
be made up of soft'options — 
the policies which the strange 
bedfellows disliked the least 
rather than those which they 
believed to be right and 
necessary. The idea that co- 
alition is the alternative to 
fridge and mudge is the dP 
ametric opposite of the truth. 
It is also the absolute negation 
of democracy.” 

In a television interview, 
Mr Kinnock responded to Dr 
Owen assertion that the Alh- 

k/nt/U ooovi uwu

minority Labour

The latest caution to the 380

after an increase in extortion 
in Japan. 

Crimes such as blackmail, -

poison companies’ products 
are rising. 

In the past six years Control

and the third- the amount of

Acid rain would have domi-

not necessarily a linear one."

The acid rain process begins 
when things are burnt on the 
ground, especially if the things 
are naturally occurring fuels . 
such as coal, oil and wood. 
The burning gives Sff gases 
which drift skywards. 

Once there they can react 
with the moisture trapped in 
the clouds. The descent of the 
water leads to what many

Soft drink 
gas could 
save lives 

By a Staff Reporter 

A gas cylinder normally 
used to put the fizz .into soft 
drinks could save the lives of 
miners, industrial workers 
and lone yachtsmen. 

A cylinder of oxygen fitted 
to a new lightweight breathing 
bag could provide a 30-minute 
supply of air to' victims of 
smoke,- fumes or poisonous 
gas. That could just be enough 
to get them to fresh air and 

In the case of mining and 
industrial accidents, which of- 
ten involve air poisoning, the 
best precaution is to provide 
every man with his otfn

ever, resembles that used by

In an emergency, a miner 
pulls a mouthpiece from a 
safety box at his side and that 
activates the oxygen bottle 
and inflates a plastic bag. As 
he breathes, poisonous carbon 
dioxide- is extracted to keep 
the air sweet in the bag until 
the oxygen cylinder gives out. 

Two companies are 
developing the bags, and one,

start production in the next 
few months.

Police sue 
over car 

By Rodney Cowton 

Transport Correspondent 

The West Midlands brand) 
of the Police Federation is| 
bringing a legal action agaii 
the West Midlands Police 
Authority because of an ac- 
cident in an Austin Metro car 
in which one of its members 
was injured. 

There has been concern 
about a number of accidents 
involving Metros which were 
suspected of having been 
caused by petrol spilling on 
the road leading to the driver ! 
losing control of the vehicle. 

In June the Northumbrian I 
police drew the attention of 
tfae Department of Transport! 
to six accidents involving | 
civilians where it appea 
that petrol had spilled from a 
newly filled lank as the car 
drove ona fast left-hand bend. 

A spokesman for the West 
Midlands branch of the 
federation said it was making 
a claim after an accident in 
August last year in which a 1 
police sergeant based at Soli- 
hull was injured when he 
appeared to lose control of a 

Another source said there I 
were about five police cases of | 
a similar nature pending, and 
he was aware of others involv- 1 
ing civilians. 

The Department of Trans- 1 
port said its engineers had! 
examined the Metro and had 
been unable to induce any 
spillage where the cap on the 
petrol tank was properly fit- 
ted. Where they had delib- 
erately induced spillage, that 
had not caused any problem. 

The Royal Automobile 
Cub and the Automobile 
Association said they had no 
knowledge of any legal actions 
based on accidents which 
might have been caused by 
petrol spillage from the Metro. 
The RAC also said it was 
examining the Metro. 

A spokesman for Austin

no possibility of spillage. ,

New light on eruption 
of volcanic islands 

An Israeli geophysicist, 
working in the United Stales, 
has suggested a theory that 
may explain the pattern of 
secondary, activity in volcanic 

The long ebatn of Hawaiian 
islands is a set of five, mile- 
high volcanoes that have risen, 
one after the other, from the 
Pacific sea floor. 

They all erupt once, pause 
and then erupt again in turn — 
a true natural assembly Ene. 
j The general explanation for 
these periodic outpourings is 
that the sea floor there is 
moving slowly north-west- 
wards over a hot spot, an 
intense source of heat from 
deep within the earth's mantle. 

As molten rock builds up 
above the hot spot, the sea 
floor is breached and a new 
volcano begins to bmld to- 
wards the surface of tfae sea. 

Eventually, the cone ma- 
tures into an island and passes 
the danger zone. It goes cold 
O and begins to weather away. 

So much is widely accepted. 
But why is it, after three- 
quarters of a million years of 
extinction and after moving D5 
miles from the original source 
of magma, each volcano sud- 
denly begins erupting again? 

The new phase is less 
violent than the first and

occurs near the base of the 
original volcanic cone. 

The mystery may have been 
solved at last by the geophysi- 
cist, Uri S-ten Brink, of the 
Idramt-Doherty Geological 
Observatory in Palisades, 
New York- At a recent meeting 
of the American Geophysical 
Union in Baltimore he de- 
scribed seismic studies that 
showed a vast raft of hori- 
zontal lava beds beneath the 
line of volcanoes, sfarth 

where the violent primary 
activity begins to quiet. 

His theory is that magma 
actually flows for longer hat 
remains trapped. 

When a volcano forms, as 
lava begins to flow, it rapidly 
gains weight that is spread 
widely over the ocean plate 
below. Eventually it becomes 
heavy enough to stop the 
flow — like a thumb on a fizzy 
lemonade bottle — forcing the 
h^im to flow outwards form- 
ing beds, or sills, up to 2M 
mil es thick and 120 miles 

If this notion e correct then 
much huger quantities of lava 
must be produced t|mn anyone 
has so for imagined and the 
hot spot itself must be much 
bigger, perhaps 180 miles long 
by 120 miles across-

Moscow ends secrecy 
and opens nuclear 
test site to journalists 

This weekend the Soviet De* 
fence and Foreign Ministries 
organized a press visit to the 
Soviet Union's formerly top- 
secret main nuclear test site in 
Central Asia and its nearby 
garrison town. Robert Evans. 
if Ratter, was in the party as a 
piwl correspondent. 

In an unprecedented break 
with secrecy, the Soviet Union 
this weekend opened parts of 
its main nuclear test site in 
barren Central Asian granite 
hills for its first known inspec- 
tion by foreigners. 

A small group of journalists 
from the West and Japan, as 
well as Soviet and Eastern bloc 
journalists, were shown shafts 
tunnelled into hillsides where 
tests had taken place, and one 
that 14 months ago had been 
prepared for an explosion. 

Senior Soviet officers ac- 
companying the party made 
dear that the visit had been 
arranged to reinforce Mos- 
cow's appeals to the United 
States to join in the Kremlin's 
year-old ban on testing. 

“The aim of our journey is 
to show- you that our test site is 
sdent We would like it to 
remain that way Tor ever," 
General Vuri Lebedev of the 
Defence Ministry told us as we 
flew from Moscow on Friday 
to the town of Semipalatinsk. 

From there were were flown 
to a town, unmarked on 
Soviet maps, on the hanks of 
the River Irtysh, the garrison 
for the test area. 

A helicopter flight next 
morning brought us to the site, 
in the Gegelcn Hills about 90 
miles west -of Semipalatinsk, 
where rail tracks run to the 

rusted iron doors of two 
tunnels that we were told had 
not yet been used for testing. 

We were led about 100 
yards into one lunneL General 
Arkady Ilyenko, commander 
of the test zone, told us that all 
tests were done in shafts bored 
horizontally into the granite— 
not vertically, as many West- 
ern experts believed. 

In the tunnel, about 12ft by 
12ft. a ventilation pipe about 
1 Virfr m diameter ran along one 
side at head level and power 
lines by the rail track on the 
other. For the first 50 yards, 
tight-meshed wire netting was

Ortega meets the Cardinal 

From Philip Jacobson, Managua 

Two days ago, as President 
Ortega and the leader of 
Nicaragua's Catholic Church, 
Cardinal Miguel Obando y 
Bravo, met to talk about 
patching up their serious dif- 
ferences, a few- dozen worship, 
pers were filing into a tittle 
wooden church on the out- 
skirts of Managua. 

The friends and family of 
Cesar Humberto Diaz had 
come to hear a memorial Mass 
for the yoang man who died in 
battle against the Contras. 

While min drummed down 
on the corrugated iron roof and 
small children scampered be- 
tween the school benches dou- 
bling as pews, a Catholic 
priest wearing jeans and cow- 
boy boots beneath his vest- 
ments led the congregation in 
a prayer for Humberto's sonL 

His mother stared hard at a 
photograph of him as a boy, 
apparently determined not to 
weep. When the short service 
was over, she was helped

The five-year war with the 
Contras has become an in- 
tensely sensitive issue between 
the Church and the left-wing 
regime and most priests prefer 
to avoid passing any sort of 
judgment on it in public, 

“We will pray for anyone we 
are asked to." said a priest 
who has conducted half a 
dozen Masses Em fallen San- 
dinista soldiers this year. 

“The Army usually buries 
them and that's when they are 
praised as martyrs." On such 
occasions, he added, it was not 
uncommon to have the San- 
dinista anthem snog at tin 

But as the bodies — civilian 
as well as military — keep 
coming home from the combat 
zones in the north of the 
country, the Nicaraguan 
hierarchy has found walking 
this particular tightrope 
increasingly difficult. 

Infuriated by the Church's 

refusal to criticize die Contras 
and their sponsor, the Reagan 
Administration, from the pul- 
pit, the Sandinista authorities 
first retaliated with hitter per- 
sonal attacks on Cardinal

It is still uncertain which

From Oar Correspondent 

West Germany’s environ- 
mentalist Greens will offer 
talks on co-operation with the 
Social Democratic Party (S- 
PD) if the federal election m 
January gives both parties a 
combined majority over the 
Government coalition. 

The Greens, however, made 
it clear yesterday that their 
price for any form of alliance 
with the SPD would be the 
early closure of nuclear power 
plants and the withdrawal of 
American missies from West 

The Greens took their de- 
cision at a three-day national 
party conference in Nurem- 
berg, which ended yesterday, 
after about eight hours of 
passionate debate. 

Their previous two annual 
conferences had failed to 
reach agreement on the issue 
which has split the party ever 
since it entered the Bonn 
Parliament in March. 1983. 

The decision, won by 230 
votes to 190, was a partial 
victory for tbe “realist" wing 
who would like to form a Red- 
Green coalition with the SPD 
in Bonn. They are opposed by 
“fundamentalists" who want 
nothing to do with the SPD. 

Tbe motion calling for the 
talks offer was tabled by Frau 
An(je Vollmer, the Greens’ 
leading candidate ia the state 
of North Rhine-Westphalia. 

Frau Vollmer said the 
Greens wanted a “different 
republic" and only co-opera- 
tion between the Greens and 
SPD could make possible a 
change of power in Bonn. Her 
motion made no specific men- 
tion of conditions to the talks. 

The strings were attached 
yesterday when delegates vot- 
ed for' an amendment which 
said the Greens would con- 
tinue in opposition if far-

The Labour Party's anger is 
not an issue here. Many 
Americans would be surprised 
that what they see as straight 
talking could be regarded as 
internal interference. Demo- 
crats do uot disagree with 
Republicans on this. Even 
liberal Democrats share many 
of the Defence Secretary's 
concerns, and Mr 
Weinberger’s warnings are pri- 
vately echoed across the US 
political spectrum. 

Nevertheless, behind the 
scene there is considerable 
concern in the Reagan Admin- 
istration, and there have been 
vigorous debates on what to 

to convey this point forcefully 
without being accused of try- 
ing to dictate policies to Us 

US officials are well aware 
of the delicacy of speaking out. 
Last week, both the State 
Department and the Pentagon 
refused to comment on the 
Panorama interview. But Mr 
Weinberger, a longstanding 
Anglophile, was determined 
lo speak his mind if asked. 

In many ways, the row in 
the Labour Party mirrors the 
anger in the West German 
Social Democratic Party in 
1983, when the US publicly 
expressed concern at the 
SPD's defence policies and 
was seen as tilting towards 
Chancellor Kohl in tbe run-up 
to the general election. 

As in West Germany, strong 
anti-American feeling running 
high throughout Britain is 
making it bard for Wash- 

fuelling the controversy. 

The Reagan Administra- 
tion. however, is. looking at 
several possible steps. One is 
to persuade prominent Demo- 
crats to convey US concern to 
Labour Party leaders. 
Congressmen have made it 
clear they folly share the views 
of Mr Weinberger on this. 

Another possible step is to 
persuade France and West 
Germany to speak out - as 
Britain and France did to 
West Germany in 1983 — to 
add Allied weight to the US 
view. And the US is hoping

dian Prime Minister, said last 
week that there was absolutely 
no question of changing his 
country's national anthem. 

The denial immediately fu- 
elled speculation that the an- 
them was to be changed almost 
at once, such is the deep 
cynicism abont political 
pronouncements these days. 

The speculation was further 
fuelled by tbe fact that tbe 
Indian contingent at the Tenth 
Asian Games in Seoul march- 
ed into the stadium to die 
strains of quite another tune. 

The anthem is ia the sews 
because, of a Supreme Court 
judgement that a group of 
Jehovah's Witnesses’ children 
who declined to sing the 
anthem at school were not 
guilty of anti-nationalism or 
secessionism, or any of the 
other -isms that patriotic In- 
dians feel threatened by. 

Tbe justices maintained that 
h was not a crime to refuse to 
sing the anthem, and have 
been roundly criticized for 
saying so. One patriot went so 
for as to say they were anti- 
national and could not prop- 
erly call themselves Indian, 
but he has been walloped with 
a contempt-of-coun citation. 

There has then been a move 
to make it a crime. But that 
calls into question the appro- 
priateness of the anthem itself, 
and some people have been 
pointing out its defects. 

The anthem is called “Jana 
Gana Mana", and both words 
2 nd music were written by tbe 

dranath Tagore. 

It urges victory upon tbe 
“Bharata Bhagya Vldhata", j 
tbe one who writes India's 
destiny, and when it was first 
published in 1912, it was 
actually a hymn to King 
George V, at the time of the

Shamir’s way to peace 

Cairo, (Reuter) — The Is- 
raeli Foreign Minister, Mr 
Yitzhak Shamir, soon to be 
Prime Minister, said in a rare 
interview with an Egyptian 
paper that he did not believe 
an international peace con- 
ference was the best way to 
solve the Middle East crisis. 

He said in the interview, 
conducted in New York by the 
semi-official al-Ahram news- 
paper and appearing in 

yesterday's editions, that he 
believed bilateral talks were 
the only way. 

Mr Shimon Peres, the Is- 
raeli Prime Minister, with 
whom Mr Shamir swaps po- 
sition under a power-sharing 
agreement next month, and 
President Mubarak of Egypt, 
agreed in principle at a sum- 
mit this month to set up a 
committee to prepare for an 
international conference.

Belgian funds 
plea to keep 
Magritte’s art 

Brussels - The Belgian 
Government hopes to raise 
more than £1.5 million in an 
initial drive to save the works 
of the celebrated Belgian sur- 
realist pointer Rent Magritte 
for the nation, officials said 
yesieiilay (Richard Owen

Mr Philippe Monfils, Min- 
ister for Belgium’s French- 
speaking community, said the 
funds available to Brussels' 
acclaimed art museums for 
the purchase of works of art 
were “miserable”, and a large 
pan of the Magritte heritage 
could leave Belgium. 

Despite its rich artistic his- 
tory. Belgium has produced 
relatively few leading figures 
in the 20th century arts, and 
the French-speaking and 
Flemish communities have set 
up Magritte funds, with the 
support of Mr Mark Eyskens, 
the Finance Minister. 

Magritte died in Brussels

A massive scandal involving 
Mafia and Camorra activities

He said in Turin on Sat- 
urday that inquiries, which 
were still proceeding, had

three southern regions. 

Preliminary figures indi- 
cated that in Ca pipanw, where 
the Camorra dominates or-

about 90,000 million lire (£45

In Sicily, the home ground 
of the Mafia, the health

The Minister gave no fig-

Brussels reviews 
emergency rules 
on radiation levels 

From Richard Owen, Brussels 

As the Russians prepare to 
restart the Chernobyl nuclear 
plant, the EEC is this week 
reconsidering the strict emer- 
gency regulations on radiation 
levels in foodstuffs which it 
imposed after the accident. 

The provisional EEC agree- 
ment on radiation levels ex- 
pires tomorrow and nuclear 
experts from the Twelve meet 
today in an attempt to reach a 
last-m inute accord on whether 
the emergency regulations 
should be extended or re- 
placed with less strict criteria. 

Countries which rely 
heavily on nuclear power for 
their electricity supplies, such 
as France, argued at an un- 
successful mating of experts 
on Friday that the rules im- 
posed by "the EEC in May were 
alarmist and can now be 
relaxed. This view is to some 
extent reinforced by Soviet 
assurances over the effective- 
ness of measures taken at the 
Chernobyl plant since April. 

Other member stales, how- 

ever. take a far more sceptical 
view of nuclear safety and 
argue that the radiation levels 
agreed by the EEC were a 
necessary response to public 
alarm and should be main- 
tained at least until next year. 

At the time of the accident 
the EEC prohibited food im- 
ports into the EEC from 
Eastern Europe and estab- 
lished norms for maximum 
permissible radiation levels in 
foodstuffs. Some EEC states, 
however, protested that the 
measures were being used to 
impede trade in trull and 
vegetables between EEC states 
rather than EEC trade with the 
Soviet bloc. 

A possible compromise for- 
mula has been put forward by 
Euratom. the EEC’s atomic 
agency. It has suggested that 
the present post-Chernobyl 
system of detailed radiations 
levels for specific foodstuffs 
could be replaced with annual 
monitoring based on agreed 
criteria for safe radiation lev- 
els for human consumption. 

Wildlife group agrees to differ 

Rome — The 25th anniver- 
sary conference of the World 
Wildlife Fund, chaired by the 
Duke of Edinburgh, has ended

The boom that rattled the roof 

V The price of houses 

^ is soaring on the 
wings of cheap credit 
in the biggest sellers’ 
market since the 
I97Qs. But behind the boom The Times 
has found hardship, questionable lending 

policies, unprecedented mortgage 

arrears and a widening north-south gap. 

We open a three-part series with a look at 
causes and effects; we meet a man who grew 
rich simply by buying and selling; and we 
ask: just how much will they let you 
borrow? Should lending be regulated? 

Part One: An upwardly-mobile market 

•w-n the summer of 1985, a 
9 family moved out of a five- 
■9 bedroomed house in Wal- 
9 ton-on-Thames, at the heart 
1 of the Surrey commuter belt. 
Tfie selling price: £265,000. A year 
later, the same bouse came on to 
the market again. The selling 
price: about £335.000. Over the 
same 12-month period, the price 
oT' a three-bedroom ed un- 
modernized terrace house in Ful- 
ham leapt from £110,000 to 
£142.000. In Pimlico, another 
booming area, a four-storey house 
increased in value from £158,000 
to £220.000 in less than a year. 

These are examples of the 
dramatic boom in property prices. 
The main factors behind the 
explosion are: 

• Easy money. Institutions are 
falling over each other to lend, in 
some cases with disastrous con- 
sequences for the borrower. 

• Supply and demand. En- 
couraged by government policy 
more people, including council 
tenants, want to buy. but the 
housing stock increases by only 
one per cent a year. 

•Xand scarcity. Green Belt leg- 
islation means that land 
forhousing is hard to find and 
expensive to buy. 

• Spending power. Tax changes 
and the growth of real incomes 
mean that people have more cash 
taspare each month. 

This is all well and good for 
many of those on high incomes 
who are already on the property 
spiral. Bui behind the figures lie 
siftHes of young couples stretched 
to breaking point by repayments 
od mortgages of nearly four times 
their salaries, loans which even the 
brokers who arrange them regard 
as f “suicidal”. 

About 300,000 owner-occupiers 
in'Britain are in serious mortgage 
arrears, according to research by 
Dr John Doling, senior lecturer at 
Birmingham University’s Centre 
forlUrban Regional Studies. They 
represent 5 per cent of the 
mongage-paying public. This new 
social problem, he says, can only 
get worse unless government 
housing policy changes. 

Dr Doling, who has made a two- 
year study of mortgage debt, 
claims that there are cases of 
serious arrears spread across the 

A Times investigation 
by Jack Crossley, 
Christopher Warman 
and Michael Dynes 

whole spectrum of house owner- 
ship. “Official figures from the 
building societies about the num- 
ber of repossessions are mislead- 
ing to say the least,” he says. 
“They refer to cases where people 
have been more than six months 
in arrears. Some mortgage lending 
institutions go for legal re- 
possession long before six months 
have passed. 

“At present it is too easy to raise 
mortgage money. I have known of 
many cases where borrowers have 
raised considerably more than 100 
per cent. Some lenders have been 
granting mortgages at income 
ratios much higher than they 
would have done a few years ago.” 

The boom has created some 
extraordinary social phenomena. 
Increasing numbers of borrowers 
are finding themselves: 

• On the point of being evicted by 
a building society or a bank; 

• Going without a car,, 
or even the occasional night put 
because the mortgage is costing up 
to two-thirds of take-home pay; 

• Living in sin, because that is the 
only way to get full advantage 
from mortgage tax relief. 

T he problem is exacer- 
bated by the feet that 
everybody — except the 
first-time buyer — has a 
vested interest in spiral- 
ling prices. Building societies,; 
banks, mortgage brokers, estate 
agents, surveyors, builders, solic- 
itors — all benefit. Consequently 
no one is prepared to step in and 
stop the spiral. 

Meanwhile there is a huge, 
widening, north-south divide in 
the price of houses. Whereas the 
yearly increase to July was 21.9 
per cent in Greater London, 16.3 
per cent in the south-east (exclud- 
ing Greater London) and 13.8 per 
cent in East Anglia, in the north 
the average —according to the 
Halifax Building Society — was 
less than 4 per cent, while in 
Scotland it was under 3 per cent. 
The national average increase was 
1 4 per cent — well above the rate of 

The widening of the north-south 
gap is confirmed by Mr David 
Leslie of Dudley Chariton, the 
biggest agents in the north-east 
“Price rises here have been very 
modest for two years and we shall 
be lucky if they rise by as much as 
5 per cent in the next year,” he 
said, adding that the influx of 
foreign money had helped to force 
up southern prices. 

The present boom does not 
compare with the peaks of the

North to south, 
rags to riches 

Canvas returns: society painter Henry Mee paid £17,000 
in 198 1 for a house, left; in Camberwell. Now he owns, 
right a former admiral’s home worth £235,000 

Henry Mee is not a 
rui property developer — but 
ie has a track record that 
would be the envy of one. In 
act he is a successful por- 
trait painter and in 1975 his 
first venture into property 
lad all the hallmarks of the 
ronug artist struggling to get 

He paid £1,200 for a 
loose in Leeds which was 

condemned as 
unfit for human habitation. 
Eleven years later, be owns a 
fine Georgian house worth 

He says of that first house; 
“I decorated it and pot in 
some central beating whilst 
other houses were being 
bricked-ep and the occu- 
pants forced out by Leeds 

Nevertheless, in 1991, the 
Leeds house was com- 
pulsorily purchased by the 
city council for £5,000 - only 
half its market value of 
£10,000 but enough to allow 
Mr Mee to put down a 
deposit on a £17,000 Vic- 
torian house in Camberwell, 
south London, then still to 
acquire its present status. 

Buying that house from 

the local council was some- 
thing of an adventure in 
itself, Mr Mee walked into 
their offices b randishing 
£2£00 in notes and was 
described by the derk as “a 
very serious buyer”. The 
council gave Mr Mee an 
£8,000 improvement grant 
on what was a former 
“potman’s” cottage, forming 
part of an adjoining pnb. 

“I had so actual money, 
nor did I have, until I sold 
the Leeds house and moved 
to London when I was 
commissioned to paint a 
portrait of the Prince of 
Wales by the Press Onk 
Camberwell was a rough 
area in 1982 — the back 
windows of the bouse were 
shattered by shotgun Masts 
cm one occasion when 1 was 
there”, Mee says. 

The house was sold for 
£60,000 two years later, and 

Mr Mw K/morht hie hwcmiI 

home in Jamaica Road, 
south-east London, for 
£67,000 in 1985. 

With the g ro w t h of the 
Docklands and farther spec- 
tacular property price roes, 
this fine Georgian bouse, 
formerly the home of an 
aihnirai, has Pear ly qua- 
drupled in value. 

“All I did", Mee says, 
“was buy what I could afford 
at the time, so that I could 
lire and work from a conve- 
nient place. Each time the 
market followed me." 

1970s, when in early 1973 houses 
were worth 50 per cent more than 
a year earlier. And in 1979 prices 
were 31 per cent higher than a year 
earlier. Even so, house prices have 
been rising in real terms since the 
beginning of 1982. and according 
to Patrick Foley, economist with 
Lloyds Bank, are now higher than 
at any time since 1973. 

A t tile root of the 
burgeoning property 
tree is the rise in the 
level of real disposable 
income — just as it was 
in the two booms of the 1970s. 
That, plus a housing stock more or 
less static at 22 million while 
supply continues to rise — boosted 
by the Thatcher government 
through measures like righi-to-buy 
legislation for council tenants — 
produce a buying spiral which 
now sees home ownership at 
about 64 per cent in England and 
62 per cent in the UK as a whole, 
almost 9 per cent up in a decade. 
Some one million council tenants 
have become home owners, and 
the numbers are being swelled by 
single people; many are young but 
there is also a growing number of 
divorced people. 

Both the Bank of England and 

the Halifax believe the increased 
availability of mortgage finance 
and the. recent fell in mortgage 
rates may have contributed to the 
price boom. 

A recent report by the Halifax 
said: “Since the stock of housing is 
more or less fixed and there are 
few alternatives to owner-occupa- 
tion, house prices will reflect 
effective demand pressures and 
will be driven by households* 
ability to pay." 

One consequence of high prices 
is that first-time buyers are having 
difficulty getting into the market. 
Lending and borrowing in the 
Seventies was done at a time of 
high inflation and wage increases 
which kept pace with that infla- 
tion. If you did take the risk of 
borrowing beyond your means 
your income quickly grew to solve 
the problem. 

Now. however, if bonowers 
overstretch themselves they can- 
not rely on inflation to get them 
out of trouble. 

Land costs dramatically in- 
fluence bouse prices. Although 
builders are coy about breaking 
down the costs which go to make 
up a house price. Wimpey, one of 
the largesLhas provided figures 

which illustrate the huge north- 
south divide in prices. 

They compare a two-bedroom 
end of terrace house in Hayes, 
Middlesex, where land costs about 
£400,000 an acre, and one in 
Doncaster, where land is about 
£42.000 an acre. The cost of each 
house breaks down like this: 


Land a £2,100 

Materials/labour — £16,000 

« m i rAAA 

Marketing etc- £900 

Total £19,000 

Sale price. £23,500 

Profit £4,500 


Land - £20,000 ■ 

Materials/labour — £1 7,600 

Marketing £1,900 

Total £39,500 

Selling price £58,000 

Profit £18,500 

A first-time buyer might be 
stretched to afford the Hayes 
house, but there are many others 
who can. The easy availability of 
loans and the relaxation of the 

lending criteria by some building 
societies and lending institutions 
is seen by some as fuelling the rise 
in prices. 

Sir Gordon Borne, director 
general of the Office of Fair 
Trading believes that money lend- 
ers should take on more 
responsibility for the problems 
their easy credit policies are 
creating. They should increase 
their support for voluntary bodies 
which offer help to hard-pressed 

“Financial institutions have a 
responsibility to help solve the 
problem — or face the prospect of 
government regulations that 
would force them to do so.”" he 

Mr Mark Boleat, secretary- 
general of the Building Societies 
Association, rejects the widely- 
canvassed view that lending 
makes for dearer homes. “It 
depends for more on the number 
of people who want to buy a 

Most estate agents say they are 
not to blame for the boom. Peter 
Miller, housing spokesman for the 
Royal Institution of Chartered 
Surveyors, aefinits that a good 
estate agent will get the best price 
for a property by his expertise in 
valuing and marketing, but says: 
“I don't think you can cook the 
market. People have got enough 
time to get out of a transaction if 
they want to." 

B ut Andrew Langton, of 
the London agents 
Aylesford, says that cer- 
tain agents in booming 
areas “can talk prices 
upL If they read the business pages 
and paid more attention to the feD 
in oil prices (which has reduced 
Arab property investment here) 
rather than concentrate on earning 
their new car, there might be a 
more sensible market Too many 
estate agents talk too loudly to too 
many people, and that can cause 
prices to jump.”

Limitless loans 

Hare lending criteria become too 
lax? There is no shortage of people 
in the leading bosiness willing to 
let prospective buyers take on

mortgage brokers will arrange 
loans they themselves regard as

Based mi a random selection of 
mortgage brokers. The Times 
found that a single person earning 
£14JW0 per aamzm coaid obtain a 
100 per cent mortgage anywhere 
between £42,000 aaa£52£M. 

One broker said he could raise 
£61,000 for a person on £162500 a 
year. That mortgage, on a low-cost 
endowment basis, would cost £567 
a month out of a net income of 

‘You’ve got no 
margin at all’ 

If yon question brokers abort 
the wisdom of taking on a mort- 
gage above the £42,000 mark, 
most would strongly advise yon to 
think again- Yet there's nothing to 
stop you taking on a debt of this 

Malbridge Financial Services,, 
for example, offered the maximum 
obtainable mortgage of £52£00, 
three and three quarter times a 
salary of £14.000. at 12 per cent 
interest However, the broker 
acknowledged that “jwVe letting 
yourself in for a lot of trouble with 
this kind of commitment.” 

He added: “To be perfectly 
honest, few lenders are prepared to 
ghe you more than three tiroes 
your income. At the moment 
interest rates are relatively low. 

bat if they go op one or two per 
cent, then you've really had it. 
You’ve got no margin at alL” 

So why offer to arrange such a 
loan? “1 am tempted to ask people 
how on earth they think they can 
afford it if something goes wrong” 
said the broker. “Bnt it’s really not 
up to me to decide what they can or 
can't afford. It can be done, people 
do it all the time. Bat you’d never 
fallal me taking OD that trim! of 

commitment,” be said. 

‘Remember the 
hidden costs’ 

The broker at Transworld 
Financial Services, who could 
arrange a 100 per cent mortgage 
on a £49,000 property at 11.5 per 
cent interest, was equally candid. 
“My advice to yon would be to 
avoid taking on the m a ximum 
mortgage available. A 95 per cent 
mortgage is more than enough to 
cope with. If yon begin with a 100 
per cent mortgage, you’re crippled 
before yon start. 

“There are many companies 
that will encourage yoa to go for a 
big mortgage, but tbeyTl never tefl 
yon abort the rate of re- 
possessions. You've got to take 
into account all the hidden costs m 
baying a house, or you'll end np in 
terrible trouble,” be said. 

At Overseas Financial Services, 
yoe can get a 100 per cent 
mortgage on properties up to 

£50,000 at 12 per cent interest Bet 

the broker there seemed indif- 
ferent to the argument that such a 
sum would stretch the borrower to 
breaking point 

“At the end of the day, it's really 

np to yon,” he said. “If yon want to 
take out this kind of mortgage, 
then 1 shan't attempt to stop yon. 
I'd feel very secure with a mort- 
gage like this, so long as I had a 
good job. and my income was going, 
to keep going up.”

Are women masochistic? Dr Paula J. Capias sees much grief arising from the belief that they are — but to Barbara Toner such arguments are hopelessly outdated 

‘Believing that we seek out 
pain poisons our lives’ 

When the man in my life harts 
my feelings, or when I've put 
on weight, or when I'm frus- 
trated about my children or my 
job, people sometimes ask me 
“Why do yon do this to 
yourseMT 1 , suggesting rtu*y \

unhappy situations. 

Such words are the most 
common expression of the 
myth of women’s masochism, 
responsible for profound and 
tar-reaching emotional and 
physical harm to women and 

“Masochism” means the 
need to derive pleasure from 
pain. If my lO-yearold tteagfe- 
ter were to hear women 4e- 
scribed as masochists, and if 
she went to the dictionary to 
see what the word meant, she 
would learn that women enjoy 
their suffering. 

The beCef that females seek 
out pain and suffering, Hat we 
have an innate need for mis* 
cry, poisons every aspect of 
women's lives. Often we are 
not even aware when the myth 
comes into play, since it is

her friends, some of them 
smile knowingly and say un- 
sympathetically: “You really 
are a masochist!” They do not 

consider that Elizabeth most 
work to feed her three chUdren 
and that even if she didn't; she 
relishes firing fife to the 
■fullest, enjoying both mother- 
hood and employment. 

Maria was a successful 
journalist before her son was 
bon and she now stays home 
to care for him. Usually she 
takes great pleasure in the 
time she spends with him, but 
sometimes, when he has col- 
icky and fretful spells, or when 
he goes for weeks without 
sleeping more than three 
boars id a row, she becomes 
irritated and exhausted. 

At those times she thinks to 
herself: “It was my decision to 
stay home with him, so I 
brought this suffering on my- 
self. Subconsciously, I most 
have watted to suffer." ' 

It was my professional 
experiences as a clinical and 
research psychologist, and 
bier as a teacher of psychol- 
ogy, that first drew my atten- 
tion to the myth of women's 
masochism. Over and over I 
beard and accepted with only a 
flicker of discomfort other 
clinicians* claims that female 
patients needed to suffer. 

I did not question these 
interpretations of women's 
behaviour, because the people 
who voiced them spoke with 
the authority of Freud and 
decades of psychoanalytic his- 
tory behind them. The first 
theorists to propose that 
women are naturally, in- 
evitably masochistic were 
psychoanalysts who believed 
with Freud that “biology is 
destiny" and that our bodies 
dictate what happens in oar 
wmrk and feelings. In the 
bodies of women, they felt, 
were the seeds of their biologi- 
cally determined masochism. 

Throughout history women 
have frequently had to endure 
some suffering to get what 
they enjoyed, but that is

worlds away from wanting to 
suffer. A misogynist society 
has created any number of 
situations that make women 
unhappy. And then that same 
society uses the myth of 
women's masochism to tribune 
the women themselves for 
their misery. 

Women are for more likely 
than men to be held respon- 
sible if anything goes wrong in 

their relationships or if harm 
b efalls their children- In the 
work-place women are under- 
paid and subjected to sexual 
harassment or other mistreat- 
ment because of their sex. And 
at every news-stand and on 
televirion females see degrad- 
ing, humiliating, pornographic 
depictions of women. 

As a psychologist, a mother, 
a daughter and a friend, I have 
never met a woman who 
sought out these unequal 
responsibilities, frustrations 
and degradations. I have never 
spoken to a woman who would 
not gladly have waved a magic 
wand, if she could, to banish 
the painful aspects of her life.

We can refuse to let it pass 
when anyone calls a woman 
masochistic, whether the word 
itself is nsed or whether it’s a 
phrase such as “Why does she

Q Paula J. CapUn IMS 

Extracted j from The Myth of 
Women's Masochism by Paula 
J Cap/an, published by Methuen 

In ihe IS years since it first 
called for revolution the 
women's movement has 
spawned countless advocates, 
many brilliant, most plau- 
sible' and nearly all American. 

They all wanted to raise the 
collective western conscious- 
ness. and it seems to me that 
they have — assertive women 
are now two a penny, and the 
glamorous cops in top-rated 
TV series are as likely to be 
women as men. 

Now, however. Dr Capian's 
book gives us cause to wonder. 
In her world women's lives are 
poisoned by the belief that 
they seek out pain and suffer- 
ing because they have an 
innate need for misery. Both 
sexes believe women to be ill, 
because they know it is sick to 
enjoy misery; so women's 
problems are attributed to 
their madness rather than to 
the social institutions that 
cause them. They are hooked 
on Freud. It's a grim place. 

Caplan would apparently 
like us to accept that the myth 
of women's masochism per- 
vades all the “misogynist 
societies" of western culture. 
But she may like to know ihat 
the myth hasn't travelled 
nearly as well as the 
consciousness-raising mes- 
sage. There's no denying the 
variety of unhappy lots for 
women but I have never heard 
a single one blame hers on her 
own need to suffer. 

1 can't remember when 1 
last found a book so pro- 

Baihara Toner 

foundly irritating. The Myth of 
Women’s Masochism has the 
ring of an elderly aunt confid- 
ing on one of your good days: 
“1 don't care what everyone 
else says, dear, you look fine to 

Dr Caplan gives little credit 
to the progress that has been 
made by women in the last 
decade. There is no denying 
that we are still lumbered with 
the absurd stereotypes which 
are trotted out from time to 
time to support some repres- 
sive notion or other, but they 
ore given less and less 

The causes of women's 
unhappiness are the same as 
they always have been, with 
an adjustment here or there 
for social change. At least one 
in three women continues to 
find herself unhappily mar- 
ried. a vast number remain 
unemployed or under- 
employed. child care facilities 
are still awful and so on. A lot 

could be done to improve 
matters by greater recognition 
of the potential in both men 
and women for flexible rotes. 
But there is nothing to be 
gained from such outdated 
and inaccurate observations 
as “Mothers are made to feel 
they are failures if they have 
not taught their daughters to 
be self-sacrificing, self-deny- 
ing and willing to put other 
people's needs first." 

Where has Caplan been? 
The answer is attending case 
conferences as a research 
psychologist and teacher -of 
psychology at various mental 
hospitals and clinics, where 
theories of women's innate 
masochism abound. Perhaps 
mentally distressed women 
the world over are told that 
their problems stem from 
cither their own masochism or 
its dental. If this is the case it is 
a scandal, and the book should 
have been an expose rather 
than a flawed analysis of the 
condition of women. 

Much of the book is the 
standard feminist text on the 
frustration of the female 
stereotype, which while valid 
is not new. What is infuriating 
is to see it bound up will? 
exhortations not to succumb 
to a myth that anyone with 
half a brain would scorn, or 
laugh out of court. I can't help 
thinking that if Caplan had 
been a geographer the book 
would have been called Guess 
What ? The World’s Sot Flat.-

The next time I foe! tempted 
to complain about a Woman’s 
Lot, I shall close my eyes and 
think of Patrick Lichfield, the 
Lionel Blair lookalike in the 
Burberry mackintosh. 

Lord Lichfield’s auto- 
i biography. Not the Whole. 
Truth is published today 
(Constable. £10.95). It un- 
covers a life more ghastly than 
any woman could contem- 
plate but which quite a few 
men still have to endure., 
especially if they were born 
with a silver spoon in their, 
mouth but subsequently, 
have not been provided with 
the wherewithal to buy the 
polish to keep it untarnished. 

Women hold tight u> the 
theory that men are somehow 
“bom” to cope with the 
stresses and strains of a work- 
ing life while they themselves, 
by dim oflheir lovely natures, 
.suffer more when the going 
gets rough. Hence all the 
workshops, networks and 
counselling services which 
working women set up for 
themselves just so that they 
can complain how beastly 
everyone and everything is at 
the office. ' 

Patrick Lichfield proves 
that life isn't a picnic for men 
either, in foci, I rather think, 
since they have never been 
allowed to express their feel- 
ings on the matter, that they 
are the ones who need all the 
support groups. But imagine 
what would happen if male 
bankers or estate agents or, 
indeed, photographers got to- 
gether to talk about, their 
career problems — their clients 
would move gingerly away 


towards someone- whose up- 
per-lip was stiffer. 

Being grown-up didn't help 
Patrick Lichfield much be- 
cause he went to Sandhurst, 
which was rather like an 
extension of Harrow with the 
same cruel jokes — new re- 
cruits had to gulp down a pint 
mug filled with a measure of 
every spirit in the bar. plus the 
dregs from the ashtrays. When 
men suffer, since society 
doesn’t allow them to cry. they 
(Hay _ dreadful games of 
lifemanship instead. 

Lord Lichfield showed 
enormous courage in leaving 
the Army to become a photog- 
rapher at a time when that 
profession was regarded as 
“for worse than being an 
interior decorator; only mar- 
gjnallv better than hair- 
dressing". Again, one thought 
how much easier life would 

have been for him had he been 
bom a girl. 

Aristocratic families seem 
to want nothing very much for 
their daughters as long as they 
don't get pregnant or run off 
with the milkman. They are 
allowed to be china restorers, 
sales assistants at Asprey or, if j 
they can afford iu to simply sit 
around waiting for Lord Right 
without anyone expressing 

Fortunately for Patrick 
Lichfield, he hadn't been 
snapping away for very long 
before the Sixties arrived and 
photographers, interior de- 
signers and even hairdressers 
became the heroes of the new 
age of Swinging Silliness. Bui 
where did H get him? An 
empty life of shallow relation- 
ships and “flash and grab” 
work. Here is another lesson 
for self-pitying women: we 
assume that we are the only 
ones who have to charm and 
wheedle our way into good 
jobs. Well, if Lord Lichfield is 
anything to go by. so do men. 
He drove himself into a slate 
of exhaustion dealing with 
disgruntled dukes, desperate 
debs and models, who were as 
thick as a pudding. 

Lichfield admits that his 
book is a “convenient fiction" 
and there is no mention of 
what one would most want to 
know about. which is how his 
marriage broke down because 
of his workaholic habits. The 
effect of work on marriage is 
one of the most under-dis- 
cussed contemporary topics. 
But I think it will lake a 
woman to tell it like it is. 

Thursday night, the first of 
the reunion, had been a forties

and sang and ate fish and

Marjorie Gark, now 67. met 
her GI at the Mostyn Gub in 
Piccadilly, where she served 
Sunday breakfasts. She mar- 
ried in October 1944 but 
didn’t see her husband again 
until March 1946 at the 
quayside in New York. “The 
biggest thrill was seeing the 
statue of Liberty." she remem- 
bers. “The biggest disappoint- 
ment was finding that my new 
home was an eight-hour drive 
away in a hamlet on a 
mountainside near the Ca-

R W Johnson argues that Mrs Thatcher herself is an essential element of Kin nock s stetegy 

‘Labour’s most effective election poster 
would be the Iron Lady in full hectoring cry’ 

During the 19S3 election cam- 
paign Michael Foot constantly 
harked back to the need for 
Labour to recapture the brave 
days of 1945. In the last few 
months, as Labour crept briefly 
over the 40 per cent line in the 
polls, that same vision of a great 
majoritarian parry of social re- 
form was again fleetingly 
glimpsed. A glimpse — not more. 

Labour sometimes behaves as if 
1945 can somehow be conjured 
back out of hope, rhetoric or 
reminiscence, but this is pro- 
foundly to misunderstand 
Labour's own electoral history. 
Not surprisingly, there is a note of 
confusion, as well as sadness, to 
such recent left-wing works as 
Where Did The Forties Go? 

It is worth starting with the 
simple recognition that, for all the 
myths of wartime unity, nothing 
so politicized class cleavages in 
Britain (and thus helped Labour) 
as the experience of war. In the last 
pre- 1914 election Labour took just 
7.1 per cent of the vote; in 1918 it 
leapt to 22.2 per cent, and in 1 922 
to 29.5 per cent 

By the time of the 1923 election 
the new order had settled down 
into a somewhat unstable equilib- 
rium. with the Tories at 38. t per 
cent. Labour at 30.5 and the 
Liberals at 29.6. Such figures 
made it clear that there were only 
two possibilities: Tory dominance 
or some variety of coalition. This 
was. indeed, the shape of the 
political universe until 1945 — 
Tory dominance overall but Lib- 
Lab coalitions in 1924 and 1929- 
31. an abortive Lab-Con coalition 
after 1931. and a Lib-Lab-Con 
coalition in 1940-45. The Labour 
vote had its ups and downs but a 
majority Labour government re- ' 
mained an impossibility. 

. The onset of war only served to 
confirm Tory dominance: the last 
Gallup poll published before polls 
wen? forbidden (as a possible 
danger to morale) showed the 
Tories at 51 per cent in February 
1940, against 27 per cent for the 
combined Opposition parties. 
When polling resumed in June 
1943, however. Labour stood at 38 
per cent, the Tories at 31 per cent. 
A quiet but enormous seismic 
shift had taken place. 

• Thereafter the Labour lead 
steadily lengthened: by February 
1945 Labour stood at 42 per cent, 
the Tories at 24, Liberals and 
Others at 22. Only the fact that 
nobody then paid any attention to 
opinion polls (and that politicians 
were quite wondrously out of 
touch with their electorate) pre- 
vented Churchill from realizing 
that, for from being on the brink of 

a great khaki electoral triumph, 
the Tories were in danger of 
becoming a -third parly. 

In fact the Tories did pull back 
— the actual Labour lead in the 
1945 election was only 8 per cent 
(though it soared back to 19 per 
cent in the immediate post-elec- 
tion polls). The Labour landslide 
was treated as a sensation: in fact 
it had been inevitable at least since 
about the time of victory at 

The 1945 swing to Labour was 
quite unequaL In Labour heart- 
lands such as Glasgow it was as 
little as 2.5 per cent, but across 
south-east England, the West Mid- 
lands and East Anglia — hitherto a 
virtual Labour desert - the swing 
was anywhere from 17 to 22 per 
cent. For the first and only time in 
its history Labour actually won a 
majority of the seals in England, 
and while the Labour gains were 
greatest of all among the working 
class, the party won a significant 
chunk of the middle class as well. 

Labour's history since 1945 has 
been largely a story of peeling the 
onion, with the marginal groups of 

The Left was slow 
to notice how 
things had altered 

1 945 being steadily stripped away. 
For a while this process was. 
masked by a further consolidation 
of Labour's working-class support 
in its Celtic heartlands and the 
north of England, but by 1951 
Labour’s three-seat lead of 1945 in 
the south of England bad already 
been turned into a 107-seat deficit. 

By the late 1950s electoral 
analysts were so struck by the 
phenomenon that they began to 
pose the question. Must Labour 
Lose? Even the 1964 Labour 
victory was won on a share of the 
vote still in decline from 1959. In 
general, the further 1945 receded, 
the harder it became to hold 
together that old winning co- 

It was, however, not until this 
process had run for almost an- 
other 20 years that the Left itself 
(in the shape of Eric Hobsbawm's 
The Forward March of Labour 
Halted ?) began to notice il There 
was something a little comic about 
the way this work suddenly legiti-

had been pointing out for decades:

Overdoing those 
Chunnel fears 

Eurotunnel, the consortium which 
has won the contract to build the 
Channel Tunnel, will today mail a 
pathfinder prospectus to institu- 
tional investors. It confirms that 
the 40 banks which promised 
support a year ago are still 
prepared to advance up to £5 bil- 
lion in Joans and invites fund 
managers to buy £206 million of 
equity in advance of the £750 mil- 
lion public offering planned for 
mid- 1987. 

All (his assumes, of course, that 
the bill now grinding its way 
through committee hearings in 
Parliament actually gets the royal 
assent next summer. There is no 
ymvenng in Paris, but British fund 
managers are keenly aware that an 
early election would halt the bill’s 
progress. A more serious issue for 
Eurotunnel is doubt being cast on 
the safety of the frequent trains 
which will whisk cars, coaches and 
lorries through the 30- mile bores 
at 100 mph. 

Last week a video released by 
ScaJink. the cross-Channel ferry 
operator, raised the spectre of 
hundreds of people dying amid a 
chain reaction of exploding petrol 
tanks if motorists were allowed to 
sit in their cars aboard the trains. 
While Scalink is scarcely a dis- 
interested observer, the safety 
issues raised by various experts 
must be answered. 

If the independent safety 
authority to be set up under the 
treaty signed last March rules that 
passengers must vacate their cars 
while in the tunnel. Eurotunnel is 
in serious trouble. Providing sepa- 
rate seating would not be impos- 
sible. but the delays while road 
vehicles "'ere vacated and then 
reoccupied would wreck the 
meticulous calculations on which 
the operation rests. 

Sealink's case is that mixing 
people with petrol on the trains 
must be dangerous because it is 
forbidden on ships. The safety 
authority must ask it in this 
respect, trains and ferries are

allowed on trains, but not coaches 
or aircraft. The safety environ- 
ment of a ship, where the prinripal 
hazard is drowning if it sinks, is so 
far removed from the Channel 
Tunnel that direct comparisons 
are meaningless. 

: What the safety authority will 
seek are hard statistics on ac- 
cidents to trains in long tunnels, 
especially where fire was involved. 
More particularly, they will want 
(actual evidence that currying 

passengers in cars on trains has 
not led to major accidents. The 
safety precautions postulated by 
Eurotunnel can then be compared 
with those considered necessary 
by experienced operators. 

Fortunately for Eurotunnel cars 
have been carried in this way 
through the Alpine tunnels for half 
a century. Since the Gothard was 
paralleled by a road tunnel in 
1980, the busiest railway line has 
been under the Lotschberg Pass 
(600,000 road vehicles in 1984). 
and there are similar services 
through the Simplon and Furka 
tunnels. These tunnels are be- 
tween nine and 13 miles long. 

The Swiss have fire-fighting 
trains in constant readiness out- 
side each tunnel.This is just as 
welt for Lotschberg and Furka are 
single bores offering no refuge 
from smoke or fumes. At least the 
Channel Tunnel will have three 
parallel bores, with the central 
service tunnel pressurized to keep 
out smoke from a train fire, ana 
accessible by cross-passages every 
400 yards. 

Moreover, Swiss motorists ride 
on open wagons. There is an 
obvious clanger that any fire could 
be swept back along the Line of cars 
by the blast of air from the train's, 
movement. Eurotunnel trains will 
be totally enclosed, with barriers 
designed to contain any fire within 
one carriage for 30 minutes. 

Despite the possible hazards, 
the Swiss trains have safely carried 
some 30 million cars — the 
number which Eurotunnel expects 
to cany jo its first nine years; so a 
statistical basis for comparison 
does exist. 

Townsend Thorensen’s tech- 
nical director, Jimmy Ayers, has 
said that in the event of a serious 
derailment, cars would crash into 
each other, causing a certain fire. 
But there was no fire when cars on 
cross-Channel ferries took a 
battering from Hurricane Charlie 
on August bank holiday in 
conditions not dissimilar to a 
derailment in a tunnel where 
carriages would, almost certainly 
come to rest upright and in line. 

Safety is never absolute. It is 
about assessment of risk based on 
practical experience. There is 
nothing in the record to suggest 
that carrying people in cars on 
trains is dangerous: indeed, it is 
indeed safer than carrying them in 
cars on roads. 

So investors have no cause to 
fear that safety issues will scupper 
the Channel Tunnel. Predicting 
the dale of the general election is 
another story.

Three choices remained- On® 
was to rebuild upwards from the 
still immensely strong wumapal 
bastions of Labour. After all 
Labour had held its own against 
the Tories in municipal elections 
only a month before the 1983 rout. 
Tus strategy has failed: Mrs 
Thatcher launched a pre-emptive 
strike against those bastions, 
which were in any case too often 
headed by Labour politicians un- 
responsive' to Labour's national 
needs- Extraordinarily, they man- 
aged to turn Labour’s municipal 
inimp card into a millstone. - 

A second possibility was to 
accept the old inter-war imper- 
ative and look for a coalition 
partner— in effect, the Mitterrand 
strategy of putting oneself at the 
of a broad coalition which 
was gradually coat-tailed into line 
behind one. In effect, this (promis- 
ing) strategy was dismissed as. 
defeatist Possibly 1988 could still 
see a last-minute round ofbaigain- 
ing in smoke-filled rooms, but the 
Mitterrand tactic of ca m paigning 
at length in this way, and thus 
moulding the electorate behind 
one's leadership, has not been 

The remaining alternative was 
to try to do what only Harold 
Wilson had done: reversing 
Labour’s remorseless decline by 
essentially political means. For 
1963-66 is still the only period 
since 1957 when Labour consis- 
tently averaged over 40 per cent in 
the opinion polls. Wilson lost 
nerve and direction in govern- 
ment but as a campaigner labour 
haul never seen his equal: indeed, 
he won four elections out of five. 
Wilson papered over party dis- 
unity, downplayed unpopular 
policies, used the media with an 
adroit sureness of touch, exuded 
an air of intellectual authority and 
headed the most talented team 
Labour has ever had. 

To opt to emulate Wilson — 
despite a for less talented front- 
bench team, a far less experienced 
leader, an indifferent touch with 
the media, and a party undisci- 
plined by three successive election 
defeats — was thus a little akin to 
Rocky Balboa deciding to chal- 
lenge Apollo Creed for the world 
heavyweight championship. Even 
in the film Rocky hadn't managed 
that at the first attempL 

.In effect Labour opted for a 
combination of emulating Wilson 
and relying on the pendulum. 
Remarkably, this mixture of o’er- 
vaulting ambition and the thread- 
bare has succeeded in bringing 
Labour back into serious conten- 

tion. Probably the most important 
factor has been - and remains - 
Mis Thatcher's stunning personal 
unpopularity (only 9 per cent of 
the electorate would want her as a 
friend, only 6 per cent think she * 
open-minded, etc). Labour’s num

simple question. "Do you rea/fy.

Three things arc necessaiy if 
Labour's .current strategic mix vs. 
to work. 

Fust, the electorate has to retain: 
its present distaste (evident in the. 
polls) for coalition government, 
and thus be willing to plump for. 
“the only possible alternative 
government". Second. Labour 

mustretain a healthy opinion-poff 

lead over the Alliance so that tt 
appears as that “only possible 
alternative". And third, the 
Conservatives must, at all costs, 
refuse to heed advice that they ; 
should change leaders before the 
election: that is. there is an 
objective coincidence of interest; 

Heathites have an : 

interest in a 
Thatcher defeat 

on this point between the Labour 
leadership and the Tory Right. - 

This is only one of several odd . 
coincidences. If Mrs Thatcher- 
wins the next election she will 
control the succession process- in 
which case there is no real future 
for Messrs Heseltine. Walker, or 
other Heathites. Whatever their 
public protests to the contrary, 
such men have a coincident 
interest with Labour in a 
Thatcher-led Tory defeat. For- 
David Owen, on the other hancLa- 
Labour plurality, let alone majors 
ity. would be the true disaster: fol- 
ium the objective coincidence of 
interest is with Mrs Thatcher. 

Considerations such as these 
will doubtless be little discussed at’ 
the Labour conference. It will bfc 
all Kinnock and Kaufman,- 
HattersJey and Hcfftr, the dariozt 
call to resurrect 1945, and so on. 
There is a resolute knownothing- 
ness about the way serious dis-’ 
cussion of strategy is always 
baulked at. fa effect the party has? 
opted, in typically British fashion/ 
to muddle through. But this is 
Britain, which means others will 
do the same or worse. Muddling: 
through could be still just enough.

Tire controversy over The Mon-

Perhaps they even snore in their 
sleep. Never mind — we have

the programme, and it seems a

From General Sir David Cutlery 
Sir, I was present as a young man ' 
at the mutiny at Etaples. in 1917, 
and I well remember the mass 
feelings of despair. For far too long 
we had suffered in silence. Now 
was the time to act But at a mass 
meeting held on the day of the 
mutiny, one speaker spoke words 
l which have remained engraved on 
jmy, you know, that thing, mem- 
ory. He said: 

"If we should take arms today 
against our officers, be sure of one 
thing; in years to come our story 
will be filmed by the technicians of 
the future, and they will be 
accused of not knowing what 
really went on here. Gentlemen, I 
want to ask you a question now: 
Does anyone here and now have 
the faintest idea what is going on?”

"No !" and we pelted him with old 
grenades. Yours etc 

From Herbert nm Suiddift 
Sir. .While I was watching The 
Monoded Mutineer, my mind 
went back to the Yorkshire cricket 
crisis of 1967 - or was it 1978? I 
remember, as ifh were t’other day, 
the mass of ordinary Yorkshire 
comm i nee members, thousand 
upon thousand of them, bended 
together in a hold somewhere. 
Their faces were white, their eyes 
were sullen. For far too long they 
had suffered in silence. Now was 
the time to an. All they needed 
was a leader. 

Then a door opened, and out 
came Geoffrey Boycott, the man 
| we called the Battling Batsman.

lead us to death, glory or being nm

really happened and if Geoff

coalman with a funny haircut who 
led the miners in their mythical 
struggle against the so-called Na-

they called the Chimerical Chair-

Labour enters its annual con- 
ference at Blackpool this week 
in a higher state of morale and 
with greater public support 
than any unprejudiced ob- 
server would have thought 
posable only three years ago. 
The opinion polls have given 
the party a lead of around five 
per cent for the past year. It 
seems to be naturally in tune 
with many of the themes 
currently embraced by public 
opinion, notably a belief that 
public spending should be 
increased rather than taxes cut 
Labour’s extremists have 
faded into the background. 
And Mr Neil Kinnock has 
matured into a soothing tele- 
visual statesman whose pre- 
conference interview with Mr 
David Dimbleby yesterday . 
displayed an almost Wilsonian 

Beneath this surface, how- 
ever, lurk various submerged 
problems. Of these the most 
important is the public’s al- 
most traditional distrust of 
Labour’s financial approach. 
Battle has already been joined 
here. The Treasury Chief Sec- 
retary, Mr John MacGregor, 
has “calculated” that Labour- 
commitments would require 
£28 billion in additional 

The independent audit of 
Labour’s spending plans by the 
Institute for Fiscal Studies, 
however, concludes that Mr 
MacGregor is pushing things 
to claim all labour’s longer 
term musings as solid 
“co mmi tments’*. With the 
election possibly looming, Mr 
Hattersley has hastily made it 
clear that the party has just two 
immediate priorities: an anti- 

poverty package and an anti- 
unemployment package. On 
these the party gets a reason- 
ably dean bill of health. 

And if revenue increases are 
taken into account, the net cost 
of Labour’s longer term objec- 
tives may be a good deal less 
than the Chief Secretary’s 
guesstimates. But the sum 
total is stm a lot of money. So 
it was disquieting to hear Mr 
Kinnock explain yesterday 
that all health charges could be 
abolished in the first five years 
because “we’re promoting a 
higher growth rate.” Higher 
public expenditure cannot be 
financed by mere hopes. 

Defence policy is another 
iceberg approaching Labour’s 
shiny new huH Questioned 
about Mr Caspar Weinberger's 
argument that Labour’s prom- 
ise to evict American nuclear 
forces from Britain would 
threaten NATO, Mr Kinnock 
was unconvincing. A Labour 
government, he claimed, 
would indeed abandon the 
British independent deterrent 
and evict US nuclear missiles 
from this country, but it would 
not then rely hypocritically 
upon the US deterrent for its 
protection. We would, on the 
contrary, disavow any such 
nudear protection. 

How, then, is this country to 
be defended against a Soviet 
nudear threat? Mr Kinnock’s 
answer was Britain and NATO 
would erect a conventional 
defence against the Soviet 
Union. Since a conventional 
defence is no deterrent against 
a nudear attack, the hidden 
logic of this argument is that 
Britain would in reality con- 
tinue to rely on the American

President Reagan vetoed the 
Congressional Anti-apartheid 
iitimiiift- BUI on Friday night on the 
n fcirmnS grounds that the sanctions it 
imposed would hurt the very 
people that they were meant to 
help. This week he feces the 
prospect of seeing his veto 
over-ridden on Capitol HSD, 
assuming that the Senate and 
the House of Representatives 
can each muster a two-thirds, 
majority against hint. It would 
represent ms first major defeat’ 
on foreign policy in six years. 
-He is right on the sub- 
stantive issue. The sanctions 
envisaged by Congress have no 
prospect whatsoever of bring- 
ing a speedy end to apartheid; 
they are, indeed, more likely to 
entrench it by weakening the 
relativdy liberal political in- 
fluence of businesses involved 
in international, trade and 
encouraging the growth of 
industries with an interest in 
economic autarky and politi- 
cal isolation; and in the mean- 
time they will impoverish the 
black majority still further and 
strangle its early efforts at 
economic setf-improvement. 

But what of the political 
tactics involved? In Wash- 
ington and Whitehall, where 
they 1 are anxious to damp 
down the sanctions debate, 
officials are trying to portray it 
as a “catching up” exercise by 
the Americans. In feet the 
congressional package goes 
further than the European 
Community's package. 

The import restrictions, for 
instance, include bans on 
South African uranium, tex- 
tiles and coal. South African 
textiles amount to less than 1 
per cent of American imports. 


but contribute significantly to 
Pretoria’s balance of pay- 
ments. Sanctions on coal have 
just been rejected by the EEC 

The last thing wanted on 
either side of the Atlantic is a 
leap-frogging exercise. That is 
why there has been so much 
consultation in recent weeks. 
More embarrassing for the 
White House, however, is the. 
demand that the United Stales 
should end all military aid to. 
countries which are breaking 
the UN arms embargo on 
South Africa; This takes little 
account of international reali- 
ties and must be bringing on 
palpitations in several coun- 
tries, including IsraeL 

There appears to be little 
chance of averting a defeat in 
the House, or of winning over 
any Democrats in the Senate. 
But some Republicans who 
have recently swung against 
the Reagan position might 
respond to a thoughtful initia- 
tive by the White House. 

What should the President 
do? The expected announce- 
ment of Mr Shultz's visit to 
Southern Africa next month 
and of the appointment of a 
black American ambassador to 
Pretoria will dearly not be 
enough to placate his critics. 
Should he attempt to pre- 
empt the Congressional mea- 
sures by presenting a more 
moderate sanctions package of 
his own? 

It can be argued that by 
doing so, he would both make 
life easier for governments on 
this side of .the Atlantic and 
also retain control of the 
foreign policy process. His 
proposals, for instance, might 
indude provisions for amend-' 

ingor scaling down sanctions 
in response to reforms in- 
troduced by Pretoria. He 
might thus reduce the inter- 
national damag e in the bill 
before him. 

But the President in- 
troduced just such a package of 
minor sanctions last year on 
identical reasoning. His admit- 
tedly modest concessions were 
duly used by Congress as a 
springboard for the harder 
measures in the present legisla- 
tion. The same tiring would be 
likely to happen again. The 
political dynamic of sanctions 
is such that, once installed, 
they would never be removed 
for any reform by Pretoria 
short ofblack majority rule in 
a unitary state. 

As the American political 
maxim says, however, you 
can’t beat something with 
nothing. If the President is to 
ward off congressional sanc- 
tions, he must produce a plan 
for positive intervention 
which offers some hope of 
advancing the rights and 
improving the livelihood of 
black South Africans. That 
miBTn an ambitious and finan- 
cially costly programme of 
assistance to black education, 
training, bousing, employ- 
ment, trade unions and busi- 
nesses — carried on outside 
the structures of apartheid. 

President Reagan has left it 
very late to promote a new 
Marshall Plan for black South 
Africa. But the alternative is to 
saddle America and bis own 
Administration with federal 
legislation which is perverse, 
damaging and counter- 


Recent events in Czecho- 
slovakia serve to remind us of 
the grim conditions that pre- 
; vail in that unhappy country 

' 18 years after the Warsaw Pact 

invasion. On 20th May this 
year the secret police opened 
criminal proceedings against 
the 55-year-old Jan Dus, well 
known in Czechoslovakia for 
his attempts to reconcile the 
Evangelical Church with the 
Communist Party. 

Dus has been immensely 
\ popular as a priest; he is also 
> well known to Western coL 
* till* leagues as a theologian and 
* Hebrew philologist He was 

arrested, imprisoned , and 
.t\' eventually charged with 

"ji “damaging the interests of the 
..." V Republic abroad”, on the basis 

• of evidence so scant as to be 
, risible' in any constitutionally 
' governed State. 

„ V His principal mistake was to 

trust that the Party might 
’ welcome criticisms from 
.. . • someone who adhered to its 
f ' own socialist goals, .and who 
believed that it meant what it 
_. said in encouraging inteUec- 

... ‘ tual co-operation among the 
nations of Europe. Dr Dus is 
. now liable to spend up lo three 
j years in prison, as a warning to 
'all evangelical believers who 

forget to fear the Party. 

. , '■ Just as serious as this move 

against the last fragment of 
“loyal opposition” has been 
the arrest on September 2 of 
eight leading members of the 
Jazz Section of the Musicians' - 
Union. For two years the 
authorities have been moving 
against the Jazz Section, dis- 
turbed by its popularity with 
young people and by its habit 
of publishing, under its own 
imprint, books and pamphlets 
of a high but independent 
cultural standard. 

However, the Jazz Section 
has international recognition. 
It is a member of the London- 
based International Jazz 
Federation. Many jazz and 
rock musicians in the West arc 
familiar with its work, and it 
has done more than any other 
cultural organization in 
Czechoslovakia to sustain the 
spirit of cultural co-operation 
endorsed by the Helsinki Ac- 

The authorities have tried to 
move against it with a mask of 
legality, afraid of the dip- 
lomatic costs that would en- 
sue. Frustrated in their 
endeavours, they have now 
derided to charge the leaders 
of the Jazz Section with “un- 
licensed trading" — an offence 
which carries a a maximum of 
eight years in jail. . .. 


Jan Dus and the Jazz Sec- 
tion are both popular in their 
own country, and both have 
tried to maintain an open, 
legal and legitimate posture in 
their dealings with the authori- 
ties. The moves against them 
can only be seen as a message 
by the Communist Party that 
it is now less interested than it 
was 10 years ago, either in 
reconciliation with the popula- 
tion that it governs, or in 
cultural dialogue with the 
West. ' 

Helsinki stood for the build- 
ing of bridges and the 
establishment of cultural ties. 
When the existence of those 
ties causes the authorities in 
Czechoslovakia to arrest those 
who take part in them, the 
value of Helsinki must come 
under question. 

In the wake of the DaniJoff 
affair. Western powers may 
begin to be aware of the 
considerable costs involved in 
normal diplomatic relations 
with communist powers. Ei- 
ther we should insist that the 
Helsinki accords be im- 
plemented or we should begin 
now to revise the structure of 
those relations, in the interests 
of ourselves, and of the peo- 
ples over whom' the Com- 
munist Party exerts its rule. - 


deterrent while disavowing it 
and indeed placing obstacles in 
the way of its operation. The 
voters are bound to reflect in 
the three weeks of an election 
campaign that a policy which 
relies upon the goodwill of a 
country it simultaneously in- 
sults is not likely to prove 
much of a defence. 

That might not matt er over- 
much ifj as with previous 
Labour governments, these 
commitments were likely to be 
abandoned in office. But the 
composition of the par- 
liamentary Labour party in the 
event of a Labour victory is 
likely to m ake any such 
backsliding a difficult exercise. 
As tbs study carried out for 
The Times by Dr Peter 
Truscott of Exeter College 
showed, 89 of the candidates 
selected for 121 marginal seals 
were left-wingers of varying 
degrees of hardness compared 
to only 32 who were on the 
centre-zight. Thai would be' 
likely to produce a PLP in 
which 207 left-wingers were 
balanced by trnly 124 mod- 
erates. A few individual 
supporters of Militant may 
have been ousted, but that 
cannot conceal that, for rea- 
sons outlined by Mr Kihoy- 
Silk in last week’s Times, 
Labour has suffered an ideo- 
logical sea-change. 

Mr Kinnock can use his 
undoubted political skill either 
to distract attention from these 
unpleasant facts or to set about 
seriously changing them. If he 
adopts the former approach, 
he will have an enjoyable week 
in Blackpool —and a great deal 
of explaining away to do when 
the election finally arrives. 

A spectre over 
UK industry 

From Viscount Watkinson. CH 
Sir. How right you were to raise 
the future of Austin Rover in your 
leader of September 22. The 
continued existence of the group 
could be fundamental to any 
examination of the whole future of 
Britain's industrial base- May 1 
raise a wider consideration to 
support this contention. 

Rover is not only important for 
itself. The firm is vital to the 
whole future of the Midlands area, 
not only because of its own 
directly, employed labour force, 
but even more because of the 
employment that it provides out- 
side the group, to a complex 
network of component suppliers 
and service industries. 

Jobs here are, in the main, sot 
transferable but rest entirely on 
the back of the Rover factories. To 
dose these factories down would 
tear the heart out of much of 
Midland manufacturing.

Help for chemistry ' 

From Professor Emeritus Sir 
Ewart Jones 

Sit, I have compiled the following 
facts, not hitherto available, which 
are relevant to the current dis- 
cussion about education, research 
grams and national needs. 

A survey of organic chemists 
with PhDs who received their 
research training or did research at 
Imperial College (193948), and at 
Manchester (1948-55) and Oxford 
(1955-78) universities, has been 
completed. Out of 512 British 
workers, 291 (57 per cent) made, 
or are making, their careers in 
industry or commerce, mostly in 
this country, but a few (34) in 
North America and some (12) in 

Data from other academic 
establishments would un- 
doubtedly reveal a similar pattern. 

This supply of trained man- 
power must have helped the UK 
chemical industry to make, in 
1985, its large positive contribu- 
tion (£2.5 Union) to our miserable 
trade balance in manufactured 
goods (in deficit by £5.77 billion). 
Surely we should be doing all in 
our power to foster such vital

Third World twins 

From MrlPaul Williams . 

Sir, Following the correspondence 
(September 19 and 23) about 
Third World town twinning, your 
readers may be interested to know 
that in March last year the then 
Lesotho High Commissioner 
came to Cardiff to launch the 
linking of Wales with Lesotho. At 
the launching, which was hosted 
by the Welsh Office, the Lesotho 
High Commissioner said that as 
far as be knew a linking on this 
scale was unique in the world. 

To date 21 schools in Wales (10 
secondary and II primary) have 
linked with corresponding schools 
in Lesotho. The Council of 
Churches for Wales is linked with 
the Lesotho Christian Council. 
Hospilak are beginning links. The 
Young Farmers, our leading 
women's organisations, the Brit- 
ish Council in Wales, as well as 
some university departments and 
local councils, are involved. The 
Welsh TUC is making contact 
with the Lesotho Congress of Free 
Trade Unions. 

A primary headteacher from 
Morija. in Lesotho, wrote to a 
Bangor primary head: 

! was thrilled to hear that your 
school had become a twin to ours 
. . . Millions of pounds have been 
pumped into Africa, with dis- 
appointing results, and I feel sure 
that something like Do Jen Cymru 
(Wales Link) will go a long way in 
establishing the real needs of the 
people here.

Fruitless question 

From MrJ. E P. Froggatt 
Sir, May I offer a choice of 
practical responses to Mr Lee’s 
dilemma (September 22)? Most 
simply, if the Royal Horticultural 
Society is to be believed, a 
planting of the self-fertile J.C. van 
To! will give him regular good 
crops of red berries and reliable 
pollination of his other hofly 
bushes, if female: 

Alternatively, he could plant 
Golden King, always a female, and 
Silver Queen, equally mislead- 
ingly a male. The former is a gold 
and green variegate while the 
latter has green-grey mottled 
leaves with a margin of white.

Ensuring funds for rescue digs 

Polls apart 

From the Managing Director of 
Market and Opinion Research 

Sir, B.C. Barton (September 24) 
advances the alleged fragility of 
the alliance between the Liberals 
and the SDP as a reason why 
opinion polls should show support 
for the two separately. 

Although the evidence shows 
the Alliance parties are developing 
a different and distinctive social 
basis from one another, their 
agreement not to contest one 
another in the same seats means 
that the public cannot differen- 

From the Director of the Council 
for British Archaeology 
Sir. The letter from the Chief 
Executive of English Heritage 
(September 25) raises an im- 
portant issue of principle. In its 
written submission to the Com- 
mons Select Committee on the 
Environment recently my council 
recommended that "Legislation 
should be- introduced to place a 
statutory obligation upon devel- 
opers (including Government 
departments and nationalized in- 
dustries) to finance rescue excava- 
tion. post-excavation work, and 
publication resulting from their 

The English Heritage sub- 
mission to the same committee 
was non-committal in this respect, 
to our regret and so h is 
heartening to learn that there has 
been a change of bean in Fortress 
House. . 

The ■ significant upturn in 
development and road building 
over the past year or so is putting 
racudmate pressure on an already 
inadequate allocation for rescue 
archaeology from Government 
fends. The time has come for the 
United Kingdom to follow the 
example of many European coun- 
tries and the United States (with 
respect to federally funded 
projects) by introducing legisla- 
tion to this effect without delay. 

Unless an additional source of 
funding is made available, the loss 
of information about our 
country's historical heritage will 
become catastrophic, and this 
generation will deserve the re- 
proaches of generations to come.

Fears for Mendips 

From Mr V D. Dennison 
Sir, In their letter (September 9),- 
Wing fnmnwnriw D.D. Martin 
and Mr David Hides wrote about 
“the restrictive powers of AONB 
(area of outstanding natural 
beauty) designation”. The Chair- 
man of the Countryside Commis- 
sion (September 12) wrote only 
about “those who believe that 
designation is a vitally important 
protection tool”. 

We in the Mendip Society arc 

becoming very disillusioned about 
the alleged protection of AONB 
designation. The Mendip Hills 
AONB was designated in 1971 
Inside hs boundary was a stock car 
racing circuit for whidnemporaiy 
planning permission had been 
granted. Ii is still there, having had 
its permission renewed on each 
application by Sedgemoor District 

The adjoining Batiscombe 
quarry is still eating away at the 
face of the southern slopes ad- 
jacent to Cheddar Gorge and has 
now been given p lanning per- 
mission for extensive dumping on 
the skyline. A caravan site has 
been allowed to extend its area by 
five acres in the AONB. 

The Mendip Society asked for 
the application to be called in; it 
was refused by the Department of 
the Environment after a public 
inquiry, it was slightly amended, 
re-submitted and allowed by a 
different inspector after a second 
public inquiry. The Mendip Soci- 
ety does not have the funds to 
employ counsel to fight these 
inquiries on its be half 

Now the latest incongruity is 
that the Woodspring District 
Council has given planning per- 
mission for a ski slope, white and 
floodlit until II pm, to be con- 
structed in the AONB on the 
wooded northern slopes of Men- 
dip, an area which the Avon 
structure plan states “is a tract of 
particularly attractive unspoilt 
landscape and it is necessary to 
ensure that the dominant land- 
scape, the woodland, is retained”, 
and about which the Mendip Hills 
local plan states that “proposals 
requiring planning permission 
which would have an adverse 
effect on the landscape ... will be 

Not. ft appears, by the Southern 
Area Planning Committee of 
Woodspring District Council but 
by this society, the Countryside 
Commission and many local res- 
idents — but who cares about 
them? What protection does the 
AONB designation give?

Highway justice 

From Mr John C. Long 
Sir, Much attention has been 
even to the recent extension of 
fixed penalties for motorists as 
covered in your leader, “Highway 
justice” (September II). A less 
obvious hut equally significant 
move is that motorists who defend 
their cases will now have to carry 
the cost of both prosecution and 
defence legal expenses if they lose. 

This is likely to resurrect the 
assertion that justice is only 
available for the rich or the 
increasingly diminishing mem- 
bers of our society qualifying for 
legal aid — which anyway is not 
usually available for motoring 
offences. The advent of legal 
protection insurance has made 
justice available to all who can 

afford a modest annual premium. 

Thus, an insured private or 
commercial driver can obtain frill 
indemnity for his legal costs. Such 
rover extends to a mil defence or, 
where appropriate, making a plea 
in mitigation which is especially 
valuable if disqualification is a 

Such insurance has further rele- 
vance, especially at present in the 
light of calls for contingency fees 
and no-fault liability, presenting 
in our view a very worthy and 
equitable alternative to both.

The Liberal tradition 

From Dr Michael Bentley 
Sir, Mr Jo Grim end’s serene 
mangling of Liberal history (fea- 
ture, September 24) is as charming 
as its author: ft reads like a 
retrospective poem composed in 
the calm of Orkney. But he 
protests too much. 

The Liberal Party cannot be 
expected “to translate its legacy 
into action” when ft does not have 
a legacy to translate. Historians of 
British politics since the 1830s 
encounter numerous versions of 
“Liberals' true values”; and it 
becomes manifest after a while 
that Liberals have never agreed 
about what they believe. Indeed 
the alumni among Mr Grimond's 
list of the great and the good most 
certainly would have damned the 
eyes of one another quite as 
positively as competing lights 
among the Eastbourne intelli- 

That shining world before 1914, 
when everybody knew what Lib-

invention of the legacy - some- 
thing that Liberals have always 
been good at

Spoiled for choice? 

From Dr R. M. Wright 
Sir, According to your leading 
article (September 17) Professor 
Richard Estes downgrades Britain 
in his “league of paradise” because 
of “lack of political participation 
in Northern Ireland”. This makes 
you smile: lack of participation? 
Rather like complaining about 
“the shortage of cars on the M4”,

Estes is referring to the lack in 
Northern Ireland of the only 
political participation that mat- 
ters. the right to join and vote for

tiate between them at the ballot 

Mori poll data shows that the 
demographic base of the SDP is 
younger and more middle class 
than that of the Liberals, that SDP 
supporters are also more likely to 
be male, in fan-lime employment, 
members of trade unions; and 
buying their home. 

However, putting aside the 
variations in the relative 
organisational capacities of the 
two parties and their tendency to 
contest seats of differing 
winnability, there is no 
psephological evidence to suggest 
that a Social Democrat standing 
with Liberal support appeals to a 

different section or proportion of 
the electorate to a Liberal can- 
didate with SDP support 
Therefore, so long as the two 
parties remain in alliance, polls 
are likely to continue reporting 
them as though they represent one 
homogeneous group, although of 
course we disaggregate them in

NEW- YORK, Aug. 28. 

This day we have the disagree- 
able task of recording the capture 
and destruction of the city of 
Washington, the ca pital of the 
United States! Six months ago, no 
one could have thought, such an 
event could have possibly taken 
place. Bat this is the age of 
wonders! The city of Washington; 
containing valuable public build- 
ings. which have cost the nation 
millions of money: a large naval 
arsenal, cannon foundry, &c. &c — . 
this city, situate at such a distance 
from the ocean, and only approach- 
able with shipping try long, 
crooked, and narrow rivers, an a 
spat selected above all others os the 
most secure from foreign invasion: 
— who could have supposed that it 
could so easily have been destroyed 
by an enemy? Is it possible, that 
after being two years at war, our 
capital, the seat of our general 
Government, should have been left 
so defenceless? Can it be believed. 
that. 3 amaii armament of a few 
ships, and from six to ten thousand 
troops, which came into our waters 
on the 17th instant, could demolish 
our capital on the 24th? But such is 
the fact. In less than one month 
from the miKwg of the expedition 
from Bermuda, the British General 
has fixed his bead-quarters in the 
heart of our nation, the seat of our 
Gove rnmen t What »haii we rhiwlc 
of such things. Where have ourj 
men at the head of affairs been all 
this time? Why have they taken no. 
measures to defend the capital? 
Were there no places on the 
Patuxent or the Potomac, which 
might have been fortified? Was 
there no wmm of defending the 
p rop erty of the nation? Can men 

who manage in this way be fit to 
govern a great and free people? Let 
their constituents answer. 

We cannot dose tins article, 
without turning the attention of 
the public to our own situation. We 
are now erecting fortifications for 
the d efe nce of our city: but where 
are the guns to mount in them 
where are the men to man them? 
and who takes the charge of what 
few men we have under arms? How 
often does our Commander in 
Chief review them? These are 
serious questions to the citizens. 
Our fortifications win be worse 
than useless, unless they have guns 
in them, are well-manned, and the 
men are trained in the use of the

ft was a substantial blow to the Church of 
England to lose the services of Peter 
CornwdL vicar of the University Church 
of St Mary, Oxford, last year. He would 
almost certainly have made the bench of 
bishops, and could have been a hot tip for 
Canterbury inside ten years. 

Instead, he suddenly announced he was 
becoming a Roman Catholic, and be is one 
of those currently waiting upon the 
Vatican's intentions concerning the re- 
ordination of convert married clergy. 

Mr Cornwell was an intimate member 
of a network of dose friends which 
included the Archbishop o T Canterbury, 
Dr Robert Runcie, and several other high 
luminaries in the Church of England of the 
Anglican “liberal Catholic" tendency. This 
was why his conversion created a special 
frisson m the church. 

He was certainly not one of those super- - 
high ritualists whose transfer to the . 
Roman allegiance seems imminent 
throughout their lifetime. He has just 
published bis account of that conversion, 
and of his present state of mind ( One Step 
Enough, CoHins-FounL £1.95). 

There was talk at the time of a new wave 
of con versions to Rome from the Anglican 
clergy, largely over women priests. That 
issue was not the real point in Mr 
Cornwell's case, however, it was a dower, 
less crisis-driven development. A niggle 
became a doubt, and a doubt became a 
decision; but not all at once. Nevertheless 
it was, as he describes it, a genuine 
experience of conversion. 

The reasons be gives are, of course, not 
convincing, unless one is of a mind to be 
convinced. Tbfe Roman Catholic Church 
came lo seem to him to be the older, larger, 
wiser, more authentic, more mainstream 
church, notwithstanding his deep attach- 
ment to the Anglican tradition of intellec- 
tual freedom and “gentle generosity". 

He is uncompromising, and it must 
have cost him a few friends, when he says 
to Anglicans that for there to be Christian 
unity “all must become Roman 
Catholics". But he calls himself now an 

Anglican Roman Catholic, and insists that 
Rome has to make room not just for that 
but for “Methodist. Quaker, and Presby- 
terian Roman Catholics'’ - in other words, 
particular traditions do not have to be 
submerged as the price of unity. 

- There is one point in his biographical 
essay that he does not fully develop, but 
which could bring fresh insight to the 
perennial Anglican problem of the tension 
between high and low, Anglo-Catholic and 
Evangelical, which is one of the major 
themes (and difficulties) of Anglican 
history. Mr Cornwell was himself made in 
the Evangelical mould for the first pan of 
his life, and gradually found himself 
moving towards the more sacramentally 
based type of Christianity in the Anglo- 
Catholic pattern. 

He describes bow, oa becoming a 
Roman Catholic, these two parts otitis 
Anglican life seemed 10 become at once 
effortlessly integrated, so that he was able 
to feel in touch with the Evangelical inside 
himself again. And he found surprising 
points of sympathy between that side of 
himself and Roman Catholicism. 

This rather contradicts the standard 
theory that Evangelicalism, being Prot- 
estant, is farthest from Roman Catholi- 
cism; while Angio-Caiholirism. being 
Sacramentalist, is quite similar. Appear- 
ances may have deceived. 

There are other dues from recent events 
which raise the same possibility: die 
Anglican Roman Catholic International 
Commission, for instance, has. just an- 
nounced that the two sides have reached 
agreement on the favourite Evangelical 
doctrine “salvation by faith alone". That 
can only mean that the strong Anglican 
Evangelical representation on the commis- 
sion has found much more common 
ground with its Roman Catholic members 
than most people ever thought possible. 

And yet there is uo sight of -or even any 

evidence of interest in - any internal 
Anglican agreement between Anglican 
Evangelicals mid Anglo-Catbolics on this 
vexed subject of grace and justification. 

So it has taken an influence external to 
the Anglican church, Roman Catholicism, 
to supply the basis far a bridge betwee n 
two internal Anglican parties. It coukl be 
just a catalyst. There is an interesting 
possibility, however, that Roman Catholi- 
cism. so long regarded as the source of the 
problem, ought now to be seen as thei 
pointer to the solution. 

It suggests that there is some factor 
present in the Catholic church, absent is 
the Anglican one, which enables the 
Evangelical insight and the Sacramentalist 
insight to be truly integrated in the 
spiritual life of the faithful. Whereas in the 
Church of England they have to repre- 
sented by two groups of people, each 
stressing something the other lades. 

Anglicans like to emphasize that the 
totality of their faith is both Catholic and 
Protestant. But it is « the price of the 
separation of the church into a Catholic 
port and a Protestant part. And all the 
rhetoric down the ages about how much 
they need each other has not healed this in- 
ternal Anglican schism. 

This may also* throw further light on 

why conversion from Anglicanism to 

Roman Catholicism is usually described 

by those who go through ft as an intensely 
emotional experience, often talked about 
in terms of “borne coming". 

The smug Catholic reaction to that is to 
regard it as a tribute to the truth of their 
faith. Yet many of the people who describe 
it believed, as Anglicans, almost exactly 
what they now beh'eve as Catholics. Mr 
Cornwell's own journey, for instance, 
contains no sodden change of mind oh a 
point of doctrine. 

To Catholics who have never been 
Anglicans, and who do not wish to make 
smug points, the intensity of the experi- 
ence reported by converts is a bit of a 
puzzle. Could it be that the experience is in 
fact one of integration, of the two halves of 
Anglicanism coming together in one 
person for the first time? In zhat case it is 
not really a tribute to Rome at an, bm a 
symptom of the internal Anglican dis-ease.

Regiment (1939- 1945) held on 
Saturday at the Royal Dorset 
Yacht Club. Weymouth. 

Sir Robert Helpmann, CBE, 
whose remarkably varied and 
successful career as dancer, 
choreographer, actor, director 
and even, on occasion, singer 
marked him out as one' of the 
theatrical personalities of his 
generation, died yesterday at 
the age of 77. 

Only perhaps in one depart- 
ment - drat of mime - was he 
truly great Yet the comhnra- 
tidn of his talents was formi- 
dable. and he had 
extraordinary Hair for the big 
effect Beyond question be had 
star quality, which can often 
atone for . mere technical 

His appearance was strange, 
haunting and rather frighto*- 
ing. There were, moreover, 
streaks in his character that 
made his impact upon a 
company dangerous as weQ as 

A homosexual of the prose- 
lytizing ifTtirf, be could turn 
young men on the borderline 
his way. He was also capable 
of cutting a person down in 
public without mercy. Yet 
ouray will remember him as 
an stringing companion, with 
an abundance of wit and 
fantasy. - 

Robert Murray Helpmann 
was born at Mount Gambier, 
South Australia, on April 9, 
1909. His father, James Mur- 
ray Hdpman, was a wealthy 
sheep fanner of Scottish de- 
scent, and it was said of 
Helpmann that his ancestry 
was three parts Scottish, one 
part En gl™. He added the 
final letter to his surname to 
avoid having a name of 13 
letters when be went on the 

His first ambition was to be 
an actor, but he began taking 
dancing lessons while attend- 
ing Ponce Alfred’s College. 
Adelaide, and in 1926 be was 
accepted by Anna Pavlova as 
a student member of her 
company for the remainder of 
a tour of Australia and New 

Pavlova then offered him a 
contract, but his father was 
opposed to his going overseas, 
and for the next five years 
Helpmann remained in Aus- 
tralia, appearing as principal 
dancer in the productions of J. 
C Williamson's company. 

Near the aid of that tune be 
was seen by Margaret 
Rawlings in a pantomime in 
Melbourne. Miss Rawlings 
employed him as an actor and 
choreographer during her own 
season in Australia, and in 
1933, Helpmann's grandfa- 
ther having now enabled him 
to come to London, sbe 
helped him- to find work at the 
Gate .Theatre Studio and in- 
troduced him to . Dame- 
Ninette de. Valois, who had 
founded the Vlc-Wcils ballet 
two years earlier: 

During the course of -that 
year he appeared with the Vic- 
Wells corps de ballet, was 
engaged as a regular member 
of the company, and succeed- 
ed to Anton Dolin's part of 
Satan in Job. In The Haunted 
Ballroom in 1934 he was given 
a chance of creating a leading 
part and also of supporting 
Alicia Maikova; and in 1937 r 
he was Margot Fonteyn’s 
Albrecht on the occasion of 
her first performance of the 
name part in Giselle, thus 
initiating a partnership that 
was to last for 15 years. 

In the meantime, he bad 
taken small parts in -the dra- 

matic theatre whenever possi- 
ble, and at the end of 1937 he 
relinquished the prospect of a 
rise in salary as a dance’ in 
order to ' play Obcron to 
Vivien Leigh's Utania in Ty- 
rone Guthrie's production of 
A Midsummer Night ’s Dream. 

With- die outbreak of the 
Second World War, 
Helpmann went on tour with 
the ballet - the company was 
in Holland when the German 
invasion took place - and, 
since he was reserved as being 
indispensable to this form of 
art, he concentrated upon it 
for the next six years, dancing 
most of the leading parts in the 
repertoire including several to 
which he was not naturally 
suited, such as the bridegroom 
in The Wise Virgins and the 
Blue Skater in Les Patineurs. 

.Following. Frederick 
Ashton's departure from the 
ballet on war service, be also 
addressed himself to choreog- 
raphy. Helpmann's first ven- 
ture in this field had been La 
Valse for the R. A.D. Produc- 
tion Old) in 1939. Now his 
first three professional ballets - 
Comits, Hamlet and The Birds 
- were all produced within a 
tingle year, 1942, and from 
dancing the part of Hamlet he 
went on to act it in a revival of 
the play by the Old Vic 

He then rejoined the ballet, 
taking the part of the Stranger 
in his own Miracle . in the 
Gorbals; dancing in Coppilia 
on VE-Day and in The Sleep- 
ing Beauty at the postwar re- 
opening of Covent Garden; 
and appearing later, in 1946, 
in another ballet of his own, 
Adam Zero, which, through 
the unavoidable postpone- 
ment of Ashton's Symphonic 
Variations, had the distinction 
of being the first postwar 
creation at life Royal Opera 

-Helpmann had begun his 
career as a film actor during 
the war, and in 1947, turning 
to the theatre again in partner- 
ship with Michael BenthaU, 
presented himself to Miss 
Rawlings in The-White DeviL 
Under BenthaU’s direction he 
played King John, Shylock 
and Hamlet at the Stratford- 
on-Avon Festival of 1948. 

Thereafter he resumed 
dancing, accompanying the 
Sadler's Wells Ballet on two 
tours of the United States, 
giving- his last performance as 
a regular member in Novem- 
ber, 19S0, in San Francisco: 
As a guest artist, he rejoined 
the company on .Coronation 
Night' and on its 2Sth birth- 
day; and later, after it became 
the Royal Ballet, for a London 


The Hon Sir Michael Ho- 
gan, CMG, who for 15 years 
was Chief Justice of Hong 
Kong and then became a 
member of Courts of Appeal 
in the Commonwealth, died 
on September 27. He was 78. 
His distinguished career 
spanned nearly half a century 
of colonial legal service. 

Michael Joseph Patrick Ho- 
gan was born in Dublin on 
March 15, 1908, and his legal 
training was in Ireland, where 
be graduated with first-dass 
honours from Trinity College, 
Dublin, and was admitted as 
solicitor in 1930. 

In 1931 be- was admitted to 
the Kenya Bar, and in 1936 to 
the Irish Bar. Thereafter, be 
brought his Irish quickness of 
mind to legal ports in many 
turbulent parts of the Empire 
and Commonwealth. 

The first such area was in 
the Middle East. He became 
Chief Magistrate. Palestine, in 

1936, and Crown Counsel in 

1937. and it was there that be 
bad his baptism in dealing, 
with political terrorism. After 

becoming Attorney-General 

in Aden.m 1945, be returned 
to Palestine as Sotidtor-Gen- 
eraJ in 1947, having mean- 
while been called to the 
English Bar (Inner Temple). 

This was the time when the 
Jewish campaign against the 
British Mandate was reaching 
its height. Law and Older 
disintegrated as Britain pre- 
pared to give up the Mandate, 
but Hogan was among the last 
to leave when it ended on May 
15, 1948. . 

In Palestine ;he was closely 
associated with Sir Henry 
Gurney, the Chief Secretary, 
and after Sir Henry became 
High Commissioner for the 
Federation of Malaya, Hogan 
followed him there in 1950, 
first as Solicitor-General and 
then as Attorney-GeneraL 
Once more. Hogan had to try 
to apply the rule of law in 
conditions of lawlessness, for 
by then a Communist rebel- 
lion - mainly Chinese - was 
afflicting that country. 

He personally felt the lash of 

this campaign, because he was 
accompanying the Gurneys 
from Kuala Lumpur to the 
resort at Fraser’s Hill in 
October, 1951, when the High- 
Commissioners car was am- 
bushed' and 'Gurney was 
killed, though Lady Gurney 
escaped injury. Hogan, whose 
car was some distance behind 
the convoy, was among the 
first to reach the scene, and he 
described afterwards bow Sir 
Henry bad deliberately 
stepped oat of the car to draw 
fire away from his wife. Hogan 
then for a time became officer 
administering the 


When Hogan left Malaya in 
195S the country was well-oh 
its way to independence; 
Tunku Abdul Rahman, who 
became its first prime minister 
in- 1957, had served under him 
as a deputy public prosecutor. 
In Hong Kong there was no 
similar constitutional evolu- 
tion, but it was Hogan's task to 
try to maintain a strong leg al 
grip in that territory. 

While Chief Justice of Hong 
Kong, be also became Chief 
Justice-of Brunei in 1964. and 
from 1971 he was President of 
the Court of Appeal there. 
Between 1970 and 1984 he 
was also associated, as mem- 
ber or president or both, with 
ihe Courts of Appeal of the 
Bahamas. Bermuda and Be- 
lize. of Gibraltar, and of 

Hogan was a vivacious 
man; who could have made 

his mark as a politician had he 

wished. Before he became a 
chief justice it was said that a 
Colonial Secretary had taken 
him aside and held out the 
possibility of a small gover- 
norship. but that he' had 
preferred to stay in the legal

t0 On his own 50ih birthday, 
in 1 959. he danced his old port 
in The Rake's 
Auckland, and at Christmas 
1965 he and Ashton recreated 
the roles of the Ugly Sisttis in 

He had reappeared ^Aus- 
tralia as an actor in 1955, 
when he and Kathanne Hep- 
burn led a Shakespearem 
company sent out by the QU

debut as a director as early & .

dame Butterfly » ggj

himself in that line

of Murder in the Cathedra. 

On returning from Austral*

as well as taking leading parts, 

- his Antony and Cleopatn 
being afterwards presented^ 
the Old Vic and, at the, 
invitation of the government 
of the Lebanon, ai Baalbefc.' , 

He was responsible, mean- 
while, for the choreography® ~ 
several musical plays m tife-ff i 
West End, of the film The Rtf 
Shoes, and of The Soldier^ 
Tale at the Edinburgh testi- - 
val; and he put the finishing 
touches to that of the The 
Sleeping Beauty as given jw 
the de Cuevas Ballet in I960: 

Helpmann's ballets, which 
du ring and immediately after . 
the war made a strong impact; 
mainly for their dramatic 
content al a time when good 
dancers were scarce, later lost - 
favour as the classical style 
became once again preferred. 
Among several revivals, only 
Hamlet held a place in the , 
repertory for long. . -r 

In 1963, however, he was 
invited to create his sixth 
work for the Roval Ballet, tQfe 
short-lived Elektra, and in 
1 964 be was producer of a new 
version of SVvcn Lake for life 
company. That year also be 
produced for the Australian 
Ballet The Display, the fifat 
work for that company tb 
have music, choreography and 
decor aU by Australians; and 
over the next two years he 
mounted for them -a * 
Japanoiserie ballet, Yugert, 
and an expanded version of v 
Elektra. He was director ofthe 7 
Australian Ballet from 1965 16 
1976. - 

In his later years be trav- 
elled extensively, though al- 
ways based m his native 
Australia. He could nevfcr 
contemplate retirement “Re- 
tire into what? Into doing 
nothing? Impossible”. Early 
this year he was dancing in a 
revival of the Rodgers and 
Hammerrtein Carousel. His 
fast 'appearance was only- six: 
weeks ago, at Sydney, playifrg 
the Red King in Checkmates ■ 
Helpmann started too late; 
nor was he ofthe physique-or 
temperament, to become 
virtuoso classical dancer, but 
his dancing was neat and 
fluent and as a partner be £ 
showed great aplomb. He had 
mimetic genius, and where 
dancing could be allied with 
mime- especially comic mime 
- his performances achieved 
supremacy. His masterpieces 
were, perhaps, Hamlet and 
Miracle in the Gorbals. ■ 

He was created CBE in 1964 
and knighted four years latere 
He was made a Knight ofthe 
Northern Star (Sweden), and a 
Knight of the Cedar (Leba- 
non) for his part in the 
Baalbek Festival in 1957.

Operetta: Hilary Finch acclaims Jonathan Miller’s 
new production of The Mikado at the Coliseum 



There may not be baitef-organsteft 
rn the streets of London to grind out 
Sullivan's hit numbers; but I have a 
shrewd suspicion that “The sun 
whose rays" and “Til willow" wiD 
soon be vying for space on the audio 
systems of the metropolis with 
show-stoppers from Les Misfrables 
and 42nd Street Jonathan Milter's 
new production of The Mikado (in 
associat ion with Houston Grand 
Opera and the Los Angeles Music 
Centre) has put the woik bade where 
. it belongs: on its toes in the brightest 
footlights of musical theatre; 

The applause starts the minute 
the curtain is raised. Knowing that 
one of the surest ways to an 
audience's heart is through its eyes. 
Miller's designer. Stefanos Lazar- 
ridis. wins them over to this entirely 
English 1920s Mikado in the wink 
ofa bedazzled eye. The set is white 
with the total whiteness of Beverley 
Nichols's or Noel Coward's 1920s. 
A spacious hotel lounge with foun- 
tain. grand piano and parlour palm 
accommodates too the odd whim- 
sical detail of Lazaridis-style sur- 
realism.' a monstrous wind-up 
gramophone add cocktail glass, a 
trombone hanging in a window, a 
suspended chair. White, ail white. 

Within a split second the space is 
awhirj with die first Busby Berkeley 
dance number, black on white as 
waiters and waitresses flutter 
around the “Gentlemen of Japan" 
each - of whom could be a rec- 
ognizably individual member of a 

dub not a minion paces away from 
ibe Coliseum. Within a matter of 
minutes, or so it seems, there is a re- 
prise, and a tour deforce of a reprise 
at that “Behold the Lord High 
Executioner", stunningly choreo- 
graphed by Anthony van LaasL 
ends in a tense silence. He does not 
appear. So it starts all over again, 
just to make it worthwhile. And 
then Eric Idle bounces in, a Ko-Ko 
aD set for tennis, wincing at the 
bellowed “Defer, deter” and nicely 
anticipating his rede as the Lord of 

Any fears that stripping away the 
Japanese costume would leave 
Gilbert's satire uncomfortably na- 
ked, or that 1920s chic had just 
worn a little threadbare, are soon 
dispelled. By locating this Mikado 
among the wags and the flappers 
who so epjoyed staging the thing 
itself (think of Chariots of Firdk and 
by remvigorating the distancing 
effect of Gilbert's own debun kings 
(think of the very first tongue-in- 
cheek line). Milter does the trick. 
What is more, this audacious send- 
up within a send- up in a world of 
posing poseurs is animated by some 
of file most sophisticated timing 
and adroit routines G and S have 
probably ever known. 

The “Wandering Minstrel" of 
Bonaventura Bottone’s Nanlti-Poo 
(a trombonist in blazer and boater) 
sets the camp - little waiters off 
hornpipmg away at the very men- 
tion oP*a song of the sea" — with “a 

Nancy on his knees" and alL Ko- 
Ko's Utile list (and he can sing, too) 
is predictably, but deliciously, up- 
dated to include “Muggers, joggers, 
buggers, floggers" and "Girls that 
tell the stories of the Tories they 
have kissed". The Mikado's punish- 
ments are, on the whole, not: we 
simply eqjoy the lovable gaucheness 
of Richard Angas’s vast Oliver 
Hardy of a figure, who at this late 
point in the proceedings simply has 
to make his double-door entry 
larger than Jife. 

The wonder is that so much tells 
into place so effortlessly, and, in 
doing so. has the effect or realigning 
the ear just at those points where 
any but the most avid G and S 
groupie is likely momentarily to 
switch off 

Under Peter Robinson's baton, 
the orchestral playing is appro- 
priately cooL But, if it is no longer 
robust, it simply ripples with life: in 
the schoolgirl sequence, as feather 
dusters and lacrosse rackets flutter, 
and Yum -Yum (Lesley Garrett in 1 
gyms lip) touches up the pompously 
pin-striped, monodpd Pooh-bah 
(Richard Van Allan): and in the full- 
bodied arias of Katisha. Felicity 
Palmer, a steely and extravagantly 
dad vamp of a diva, sings them as 
straight as the operatic melod ramas 
they mock. The shift of level works 
sujxn-bly well, and her wooing by 
and pas dedeux with Eric Idle's Ko- 
Ko is the production's final seal of 

The production's final seal of style: Felicity Palmer and Eric Idle, as 
Katisha and Ko-Ko, dance their pas de deax 

“I have to tell you a story. It 
was 1972 and I was going to 
marry an English fellow. And 
he took me to a pub where one 
of England's famous minimal 
sculptors came over. He came 
and sat and said Tve heard 
about you and Tve read so 
much about American Ne- 
groes. Tell me. what is it like? 
Tell me about the awfulness of 
being a black American'. So I 
said the worst part of it is 
having a silly bastard like you 
come and ask me a stupid 
question like that That's the 
worst of ft.” Maya Angelou 
leans bade and lets outa shriek 
of laughter at the memory. 
“And of course it isn't, you 
know. But I could not, I 
cannot throw myself on 
somebody's pity." 

Maya Angelou certainly 
does not come across as 
person to be pitied. She is six 
feet tall and beautiful, and 
positively shimmers with 
intelligence and humour. She 
is Well-travelled, hasason — 
“the great joy of my life".— 
and her first three volumes of 
autobiography have sold

describes her life, during the 
early 1960s: entertaining Billy 
Holiday in Los Angeles; work- 
ing for Martin Luther King in 
New York; living in the “year- 
long mardi gras" of Cairo. 
Like its predecessors, the book 
is a celebration of friendship, 
music and other sensual de- 
lights in which only mis- 
adventures (and there are 
several) are given short shrift 

This single reticence is 
surprising in an author of sudt 
candour, but she admits to

Angeiou's grandmother is 
the central character of her 
first book of autobiography, J 
Know Why the Caged Bird 
Sings , and has been a lasting 
influence. It was to this grand- 
mother that she was sent to 
live at the age of three and to 
whom she returned when, at 
seven, she was raped by her 
mother's lover. The experi- 
ence left her mute for the next 
five years. That she should 
have been unable to speak for 
so long seems ironic, for 
Angelou is a woman who uses 
her voice to the fuJL It is a 
deep and resonant voice, fre- 
quently turning to bursts of 
laughter and, in our interview, 
song. There were two bus- 

inessmen in the lounge of the 
sedate Knightsbridge hotel 
where we met early one morn- 
ing; her lengthy and heartfelt 
performance of an old country 
and western song must have 
been an unusual start to their 
working day. 

The vividness of her mem- 
ory she ascribes to those years 
of silence, when she learnt by 
heart the works of the black 
poets, Shakespeare and Poe. 
And listened: "1 used to think 
of myself sometimes as an 
ear", she remembers, just 
absorbing all the sounds. The 
freshness of the dialogue 
throughout her work bears 
witness to this capacity for 
hearing: she has never kept a 
diary. Her inability to com- 
municate was eventually over- 
come, thanks to a local lady 
who encouraged her to recite 
favourite passages from lit- 
erature. And to the obdurate 
hope of her grandmother. 
“Momma used to say. when 
she'd braid my hair. rMomma 
don't care what these people 
say about you being a moron. 
Momma know, when you and 
the good Lord get ready, you 
gonna be a preacher'." 

Despite her almost total 
recall she does not find writing 
easy. “Hawthorne's statement 
that easy reading is damned 
hard writing is right on time. 
I’ve had some critics who say 
‘Well. Maya Angelou has a 
new book out. and of course 
it’s very good. But then she’s a 
natural writer'. Natural writer! 
That's like being a natural 
brain surgeon." She has. 
nevertheless, produced five 
volumes of autobiography and 
is quick to defend the form. 
“It's long been thought that 
autobiography is not lit- 
erature, but just a factual 
account. I love the form, and 

I'm trying to look at it and 
help it to grow." 

Her most recent book. All 
God’s Children Need Travel- 
ling Shoes, will be published 
here next year. The book goes 
up to 1968. and describes her 
years in Ghana as editor of 
African Review. She admits 
that the work is her favourite 
— “The last one always is" — 
and is just as pleased with its 
title. “It's great, isn't it? And 
so true. Just when you think 
you've got it all. a man, kids, a 
house, a job. life offers you a 
ticket to Bangladesh and 
makes you ray the fare." Life 
seems to oner Angelou more 
tickets than most. She has 
recently revisited Ghana, and 
is going on to Liberia after her 
stay in England. And all this 
when her own travelling shoes 
are beige slingbacks with 
three-inch heels. 

- She has not planned a 
sequel. “I might try fiction 
Anything to keep me from 
writing the next." Two days 
after the story of Travelling 
Shoes ends Martin Luther 
King was killed. “On my 
birthday, just after I’d agreed 
to go back to work for him. 
Malcolm X was killed, ft was a 
bad time." She brightens: 
“Anyway. Tve got a new book 
of poetry coming out in the 
spring." She has her teaching 
work at a university in Noith 
Carolina, and a grandson. 
Colin. “Just like his tether, 
rumbustious and funny", she 
says, with evident pride. She 
also has an unquenchable 
spirit “I’m aware that yours 
. may be the last face I'll see on 
this earth. That's why I bring 
all of myself to whatever I do. 
whoever I meet.” She grins: 
“Because life loves those who 
live it."

Keaton is a Dubliner who won 
a Perrier Fringe Award at this 
year's Edinburgh Festival and 
his show. Intimate Memoirs of 
ah Irish Taxidermist deserves 
the praise ft has received. 
Keaton is tall thin and gangly, 
with a guileless, pleasant race 
across whose contours — he 
compares his profile to a wall- 
map of Ireland — mischief 
leaps and darts in nervous 
spasms. A lightness of touch, a 
nimble sophistication of tim- 
ing and phrase, seems built 
into the Irish soul and Keaton 
woos the audience with a 
stealthily deployed charm. 

Keaton’s best material is the 
most eccentric, and he is 
fimniest when marvelling 
credulously at the infinite 
strangeness and incomprehen- 
sibility of the universe. He is 
an expert at deliberate confu- 
sions of mood, at starting a 
sketch in one spirit and 
wrenching it hilariously into 
quite another. At other mo- 
ments. we laugh at him simply 
because he is behaving in that 
silly, capricious way from 
which most of us feel we have 
been banished by adulthood. 

The show concludes in a 
piece of well stage-managed 
force as Keaton officiates at 
his own funeral before throw- 
ing himself into a high-kicking 
jig alongside two national-

a violent play about three 
inner-city deadbeats who talk 
foul tough and nasty and who 
go on a rampage. The writing 
oscillates between a maudlin, 
sentimental street poetry and 
a satirically belligerent yob- 
talk. But the author directs it, 
on a relatively naturalistic set, 
with immense assurance.

With this performance of 
Tchaikovsky’s Violin Con- 
certo — a reading that flew and 
sometimes even fizzed — 
Viktoria Mullova went some 
way towards modifying her 
reputation as the ice-maiden 
of the fiddle-playing world. 
The reputation was. in any 
case, partly created because 
Mullova did not fit the Ameri- 
can public's preconceived no- 
tions of what a newly- 
emigrated Russian violinist 
should sound like: 

Certainly she delivered 
much of the finale’s pas- 
sagework with such enormous 
technical control that it could 
be mistaken for emotional 
neutrality, simply because the 
mercurial fingerwork was so 
precise and the bowing so 
evenly weighted. But in the 
first movement one can now 
detea a less inhibited rubato 
beginning to thaw her playing 
of the big lyrical moments, 
and there is a more character- 
ful stamp to her articulation of 
the dotted rhythms at the 

One should not underesti- 
mate Andre Previn's influence 
on Mullova. He tied in the 
orchestral accompaniments 
expertly, -and his arch-Ro- 
mantic inclinations must have 
encouraged her burgeoning 
individuality. Bui Previn had 
nothing to do with Mullova's 
delightful tone, revealed part- 
icularly in the Canzonetta: it 
gives the illusion of being a 
seamless continuation of G- 
string timbre, up imo the 
highest register. 

This opening concert in the 
Royal Philharmonic Orch- 
estra's Festival Hall season, 
apparently known more for- 
mally as the “NEC Previn 
International Series", found 
Mr NEC Previn in top form. 
Starting with Rossini's 
L'italiana in Algcri overture 
was perhaps not too clever, 
given the unsettled sound of 
the current RPO flute section. 

But finishing with Rach- 
maninov's second symphony, 
one of Previn's most lustrous 
party-pieces, was an inspired 

The omens were good from 
the Largo beginning where 
Previn, with the minimum of 
filss, gathered the arching 
string phrases imo a sump- 
tuous climax. To delineate, 
meticulously, the brooding 
baritone-register passages of 
this movement is not really 
his style — he prefers to 
concentrate on the broad 
sweep .and the opulent tutti, 
and the RPO responded with 
great glee. 

In the scherzo the changes 
of pace and texture were 
relished for their abruptness, 
and the violins lavishes such 
flamboyant portamemi on the 
suave melody in the middle 
that one was slightly anxious 
about what they would do to 
the Adagio's fruity opening. 
But in feet they played it with 
impeccable cleanness, paving 
the way for Prudence Whit- 
taker’s beautifully languid 
darinet solo. After that 
Previn, like the MGM mae- 
stro he once was, unfolded the 
orgy of schmaltz to perfection.

Elizabeth Hall 

It seems a long time since we 
heard Sir Colin Davis and 
Mozart in a small concert halL 
Perahia, Tate and U chi da 
have been putting the English 
Chamber Orchestra through 
their Mozartian paces, and the 
time was ripe for them to be 
taken in band by Sir Colin. 

A little Minuet, the one in C 
major which Mozart perhaps 
wrote for the K338 Sym- 
phony. set out the Davis 
manifesto: that characteristic 
trampoline spring, from ankle 
and baton, and the first beat 
whose energy is always driven 
onwards rather than down- 
wards. This, and the wonder- 
fully vocal sense of live, long- 
arching phrasing, is vintage 

Davis Mozart; and it was well 
and truly uncorked in a full- 
bodied Symphony No 40 
which ended the evening. 

The main purpose of the 
concert, though, was to launch 
the London International Pi- 
ano Coraeptrtion. It wifi be on 
us- in February 1988, no 
sooner than the applause from 
Leeds the previous autumn 
has died down. Whether Radu 
Lupu's career has developed 
because or despite of his own 
successes in the gladiatorial 
arena is a debatable point. 
But, if ever a witness for the 
defence were needed, the or- 
ganizers of this latest contest 
ce rt ai nly knew their man. 

Lupu's Mozart K491 Con- 
certo was the still centre, the 
point of reference, as it were, 
of an unusually enriching 
evening. He provided the 
pulse to Sir Colin's breathing. 
For the last movement’s vari- 
ations, the fingers bent to 
activate every passing mood 
m a chain of events as 
superbly paced as in a finale 
from, say, Figaro or Don 

Lupu and Davis both know 
well enough the dangers of 
protesting too much and too 
slowly in a Mozart slow 
movement. Few pianists, 
though, would dare such com- 
plete simplicity in their han- 
dling of all those gently 
insistent repeated notes. Few. 
indeed, could: it is only Lupu's 
perfect judgement of weight 
and measure, as each single 
note drops into place from 
those deceptively relaxed 
limbs, that can create a perfor- 
mance of such rare and elo- 
quent proportion.

St John's 

There was a bewifderingly 
wide range of styles on offer in 
this Society for the Promotion 
of New Music concert given, 
generally excellently, by Greg- 
ory Rose's group Circle. One 
of the most extreme was foe 

pithy, strident idiom of David 
Sutton-Jones's Song of the 
Falcon, scored for the shriek- 
ing ensemble of flute, oboe 
and E flat clarinet. Had the 
piece lasted longer this 
particular combination might 
have proved unbearably wear- 
ing. but it did not, and so this 
miniature planted itself firmly 
in the listeners' imagination. 
In a different, gentler and 
conspicuously idiomatic man- 
ner so did Bany Mills’s ex- 
quisite Harp Sketches, almost 
as brief and given eloquently 
by Hugh Webb, despite a 
string which snapped early in 
the performance. 

Both of these works were 
receiving their first perfor- 
mances. as was the American 
emigre composer E Jack van 
Zandt's El Oro de Los Tigres: 
Tankas. This was a rather 
severe setting, very much in 
the post-Werbemian mould 
and significantly dedicated to 
Alexander Goehr, one of Van 
Zandt's teachers, of miniature 
poems by Borges. The soprano 
Nicole Tibbels sung it well 
enough, though without being 
able to invest it with much 
genuine emotional appeal. 

Of the remaining works, all 
previously heard somewhere 
or other. Robin Grant's Dumb 
Show was nicely structured 
and contrasted different 
sound-types skilfully and ef- 
fectively. James MacMillan's 
Songs of a Just War. an 
intentionally ambiguous set- 
ting of lines by Neruda. Souiar 
and the Chinese poet Tsou ti- 
ten. certainly had plenty of 
genuine feeling behind it and 
also benefited from a ripe 
harmonic language, an in- 
stinctive feeling for dramatic 
response and. not least. Eileen 
Hulse's confidently pitched, 
shapely singing. 

She also took on the solo 
role in Javier Alvarez's 
compelling Fragments' Run. a 
setting of a text derived 
through various intermedi- 
aries from an Aztec poem. If 
only one of these composers 
were to be allowed future 
celebrity, on merit it would. I 
think, be he.

Chris de Burgh 

Wembley Arena 

When the editorial staff of 
Melody Maker recently de- 
vised an hilarious lampoon of 
the new music and arts maga- 
zine Q. they sought a star to 
feature on their "cover" who 
would strike an immediate 
chord of antipathy with that 
minority of rock tens serious 
enough to buy a music paper. 
A picture of the beaming Chris 
de Burgh fitted the bill exactly. 

Seeing his show, it was not 
hard to understand why the 
hugely popular De Burgh 
holds such a singularly 
unfavoured position. Drably 
dressed, he steered his five- 
piece band through an exem- 
plary exposition of the way in 
which the .sounds and lan- 
guage of rock have now be- 
come assimilated imo the 
broad sweep of mainstream 
light entertainment Some of 
the earlier, acoustic guitar 
songs were genuinely pleasant 
on the ear. but for the most 
part loud guitar solos, modern 
synthesizer technology, drum- 
machines and a stiff rock beat 
were utilized with bland 

De Burgh started his career 
singing to guests at the hotel 
his parents owned in Ireland, 
and such a background ev- 
idently encouraged him to 
develop both an accurate, 
strong voice and a lounge-bar 
performer's knack for keeping 
all of the punters happy for at 
least some of the time. The 
Duke and Duchess of York 
were in this particular audi- 
ence and De Burgh's dedica- 
tion of “In a Country 
Churchyard" to all recently 
married young couples was 
larded with schmaltz. Just as 
well he did not muddle his 
introductions, for the very 
next song was about a stripper 
called Patricia whose routine 
was salaciously described. 

"The Lady in Red" was 
despatched with uncanny ac- 
curacy. and the show built to a 
noisy climax with flashing 
lights and a smoke-screen that 
maintained a visual dimen- 
sion redolent of soft-focus film

Back to 



The Valkyrie 
Covent Garden/ 
Radio 3 

It is a considerable shock 
when the curtain goes up on 
Act I of Welsh National 
Opera's The Valkyrie. The 
vaguely Victorian railway 
arches of The Rhinegold have 
been pushed aside. Instead. 
Hunding's hut is as “trad- 
itional ly“ depicted as any 
diehard conservative would 
wish: all brown and primitive, 
a massive oak within, and a 
picturesque snowstorm with- 
out. It is a fitting sating for 
Goran Jarvcfelt's unasham- 
edly naturalistic and very 
sensitive staging of the 
Sicglinde/Siegmund love- 
scenes. and for the most 
ardently lyrical singing we 
have yet heard in this Ring. 

For that one must thank 
Kathryn Harries, a Sieglinde 
with a wonderfully velvety 
tonal quality, surprising 
power and natural command 
of vocal and physical ex- 
pression: and Warren Ells- 
worth (Siegmund) who, if less 
securely in control of his 
timbre and sometimes in- 
clined to oversing, produced 
much incisive tone and (es- 
pecially in his stubborn Act II 
dialogue with Brunnhilde) a 
dark, baritone-like middle reg- 
ister that added dignity and 
tragic stature. 

This Siegmund was initially 
clumsy and self-conscious in a 
woman's company: one of this 
aa‘s joys was watching the 
character grow in tenderness 
and concern. He had an 
excellent foil in John Tranter's 
mean and menacing Hunding. 
When he grasped Sieglinde'^ 
wrist, one could tell from the 
gravel in the voice how pain- 
ful the grip was. Similarly 
brutal was his killing of 
Siegmund: one of Jarvefell's 
livelier pieces of action. 

Acts II and HI returned to 
the familiar stage shapes of 
Rhinegold. suitably chipped 
and weathered. But although 
we could now admire Penel- 
ope Walker's determined and 
shrewish Fricka and the early 
flourishes of what will surely 
be a memorable Brunnhilde 
from Anne Evans — whostS 
singing was often thrilling and 
never shrill, though there were.’ 
signs of fatigue in the latter 
stages — Jarvcfelt’s touch 
seemed less certain. 

The incongruous hotch- 
potch of costumes did not 
help, but one other problem; 
was Phillip Joll's rather un- 
demonstrative Wotan. Joll is’ 
singing well: the reconciliation; 
with Brunnhilde (which was" 
beautifully staged) elicited* 
some especially rich, feeling* 
tone. But his gestures some-’, 
how seem tame, and he has to- 
make some particularly un- 
prepossessing entrances. Even- 
in Act 111. at the height of his 
anger, he appears to sidle on. ; 

Richard Armstrong's con-; 
ducting was much more grip- 
ping here than in RhinegoliC 
particularly in the glorious 
love music, and he did well to 
hush the orchestra enough to 
give some of the weaker- 
voiced Valkyries a chance, ft 
was a pity that the “Ride of the 
Valkyries" did not find these 
hard-working, dependable 
players at their best, but the 
sight of the armour-clad maid- 
ens. looking as if they had 
drifted in off Horse Guards 
Parade and waving like ma- 
niacs at something in the. 

upper circle, was hardly 
inspiring either.

RUC officer 
carries bomb 
to safe area 

From OnrCorrespwidwit, Belfast 

An Ulster policeman car- 
ried a live 40 lb bomb nearly 
100 vards to open ground 
early yesterday after deciding 
there was no time to evacuate 
steeping residents from houses 
sunrounding the terrorists’ tar- 
get. a Downpatrick bar. 

The explosion which fol- 
lowed was one of two in 
County Down in the early 
hours of yesterday. 

An RUC spokesman de- 
scribed the policeman's action 
as an act of outstanding 
bravery which undoubtedly 
saved local people from death 
or serious injury. He was the 
commander of a patrol which 
found the bomb in a holdall 
outside a bar. There had been 
a warning telephone calL 

The policeman threw the 
bomb over a thick hedge into 
an open field where it ex- 
ploded IS minutes later. leav- 
ing a large crater. 

A short time later police 
waved down a three-car con- 
vov at nearby Drumaness. A 
Fend Fiesia and a VW Polo 
stopped but the third car raced 
through the checkpoint with 
police firing after it. It was 
round four miles away with a 
shredded rear tyre. Nearby 
was a 401b bomb thrown on to 
the roadside. It was made safe 
by the Army. 

Meanwhile, police had 

discovered yet another bomb 
in the halted Fiesta. They 
evacuated the area and as tire , 
Army prepared to deal with it 

at about Sam the car was tom 

apart by a powerful explosion. 

Three men and a woman 
who were in the two cars 
stopped at the check point 
were arrested and were being 
questioned by police yes- 
terday as a search continued 
for two people who aban- 
doned the other car and ran 

The Irish National libera- 
tion Army later claimed 
responsibility for the bombs, 
saying the Welshman's Bar 
was attacked because it was 
much used by off duty mem- 
bers of the security forces.

Nature notes 

Most robins have now occu- 
pied their winter territories and 
are singing again at dawn. 
Wrens are also back in regular 
song. Woodpigeons are feeding 
on acorns: they leave a debns of 
torn-off foliage and half eaten 
fruit beneath the oaks. 

Summer migrants are vanish- 
ing rapidly now, but swallows 
and house-martins are still in 
the skies, and reed warblers by 
the waterside. A few late swaRs, , 
mostly solitary birds, have been 
reported, and even a few very 
late cuckoos. Little gulls from 
the Baltic are passing over 
England: they are not much 
bigger than a mistie thrush, and 
iheur dark under wings are 
conspicuous as they swoop to 
pick up food from the surface or 
the water. 

Trees everywhere are chang- 
ing colour with the cool nights 
and misty mornings. Many 
limes and birches are com- 
pletely yellow, and rowan leaves 
are turning red. Michaelmas 
daisies that have escaped from 
gardens are in full flower on 
railway embankments. 
wiry plants with small pink- 
tinged flowers are still found in 
pavement cracks: knotgrass and 
pereicaria. DJM

The machines have beat 
used successfully by the US 
Navy since 1982. 

An anti-drag war involving 
their use was launched under 
the direction of Rear-Admmti 

Paul Mufloy when the Ub 
Navy discovered in a randon 
survey that 48 per cent of its 
sailors had taken cannabis. 
That figure has now been 
reduced to 4 per cent _ 

The use of urinalysis drag 
detection was appro vedby the 
US courts between 1979 and 
1981 — shortly before the 
Navy carried out the anonym 
mous and unanno unced tests 
oa its sailors. 

Eighteen months a fter t he 
anti-drags campaign started. 
Admiral Mnlloy ran a survey 
to find out the main factor 
stopping them from taking 
drugs7''The vast majority said 
urinalysis,” he said.

Industrial pay 

rises lowest 
in three years 

By Edward Townsend, Industrial Correspondent 
Pay rises in manufacturing Employment Minister, de- The CBI 
dustry haye fallen to their scribed as “irresponsible a nd concern tod 

industry haye fallen to then- 
lowest level for three years, the 
employers’ organization, the 
Confederation of British In- 
dustry, said today. But at SS 
per cent they remain at least 
twice as high as the Govern- 
ment and industry say is 
necessary to prevent the 
wrecking of industrial 

The. latest results of the 
CBFs pay data bank, covering 
the three months to the end of 
September, show some first 
tentative signs fo rt wage in- 
creases are coming down, after 
the average of6_5 per cent 
rises recorded since the end of 
1984. Settlements were last at 
the 5.5 per cent level in the 
middle six months of 1983. 

But neither ministers . nor 
CBI leaders will regard the 
reduction in the average level 
of pay settlements as much 
use unless h continues to 
accelerate downwards quickly. 
More jobs are under threat 
while pay rises are high, 
industrialists say. 

The Government is still 
seething over litis month's 6.7 
per cent (£6 a week) offer to 
local authority manual work- 
ers which Mr Kenneth Clarke, 
the Paymaster Genera] and 

reckless". He called, for an end 
to “Mickey Mouse" pay deals 
that were not justified by 
increased productivity. 

And Mr Nigel Lawson, the 
Chancellor, has warned that 
unless pay rises are halved m 
the coming year he will not be 
able to achieve the Govern- 
ment's aim of cutting income 
lax to 25 per cent. 

Sir Terence Beckett, the CBI 
director general, said today 
that the latest slide in pay rises 
was, if confirmed later, a clear 
step in the right direction. 
“But we shall have to do much 
more before we can start 
competing on level terms with 
our major overseas rivals,” he 

“We need to continue to 
strive for greatly reduced pay 
settlements. Indeed, with the 
cost of living virtually static, 
companies must seriously 
question the need for ann ual 
pay awards." 

Pay has now usurped 'in- 
terest rates as the CBTs bete 
notr; ideally, business leaders 
would like to see no pay rises 
in the coming year and CBI 
members have been pressed to 
work towards abolition of the 
yearly pay round. 

The CBI underlined its 
concern today by recording 
Britain's “bleak" position in 
the international labour cost 
competitiveness league. Cuts 
in Britain have risen by 7.5 per 
cent in the last 12 months 
against 5.5 per cent in Japan, 
4.7 percent in West Germany, 
25 per cent in France and 12 
per cent in the United States. 

Sir Terence said that only 
pay increases fully justified by 
productivity gains should be 
awarded. “We must put 
performance first. Many of 
our major competitors have 
been doing this successfully 
for years, and this approach 
needs to be adopted here if we 
are not to lose more jobs." 

The range of pay settle- 
ments remains wide, with one 
in four falling between 4.5 per 
cent and 5.5 per cent in the 
past six months. A further 19 
per cent were between <L5 per 
cent and 7.5 per cent and only 
1.1 per cent were above 10.5 
per cenL Inability to raise 
prices remains the most im- 
portant downward pressure 
on settlements. 

Cuts- m the working week 
remained low, with only 3 per 
cent of deals in manufacturing 
incorporating a reduction in 
the past year.

City dubious over Labour’s 
plan for investment bank 

The Labour Party’s plans 
for a new National Investment 
Bank funded by the forced 
repatriation of overseas 
investments could have a 
damaging effect on overseas 
investment in Britain, accord- 
ing to a study prepared by the 
Stock Exchange. 

There are severe doubts in 
the financial and business 
communities as to the need 
for such a new body: 

Compulsory investment in 
NIB stock is Jikdy to divert 
funds away from foe gilt 
market into equities. 

Labour’s proposals could 
cause m^jor problems of 
compliance for managers of 
some unit trusts amd invest- 
ment trusts with internation- 
ally oriented portfolios. 

If implemented, the Labour 
plans would initially drive up 
equity prices and depress 
yields.Thereafier the result is 
fikdy to be bearish for share 

These are the most im- 
portant findings of the Stock 
Exchange study of opposition 
party plans for the City and 
their possible effects.

makers have not yet disclosed 
the extent to which overseas 
investments held by British-

The Accounting Standards 
Committee of the combined 
accountancy bodies will today 
launch the publication of a 
booklet — “Accounting for foe 
effects of changing prices" — ! 
which offers a basis for dis- 
cussion about the formulation 
of a new current cost account- 
ing standard. 

The existing standard, 
SSAP16, has fallen out of 
favour and in April the ASC 
recommended its withdrawaL 
The need fora new standard

based institutions will be forc- 
ibly repatriated, party 
documents have used assump- 
tions that no more than five 
per cent of portfolios will be 
allowed to remain invested 

This could mean that more 
than £30 billion would have to 
be returned to Britain, the 
Stock Exchange suggests. 

If institutions are to retain 
existing tax and other advan- 
tages, part of this inflow would 
be compulsorily invested in 
the National Investment 
Bank's loan stock. Those in- 
stitutions would probably de- 
crease their purchases of 
government stock by a 
corresponding amount, the 
study concludes. 

Thus, the principal effect of 
repatriation would be an ex- 
change of overseas equity, 
holdings for domestic ones. 

Distortions would be cre- 
ated m the stock market as 
institutions sought to preserve 
their international exposure 
by buying shares in multi- 
nationals and exporting 

“In addition to reducing 
UK. equity yields, the capital 
inflows can be expected to 
depress UK interest rates. 
These two factors are likely to 

combine with concern over 
the direction of Government 
policy to discourage overseas 
investment in the UK market 
in the event of a Labour 
administration," foe study 

It takes the view also that 
London' position as a finan- 
cial centre may suffer as a 
result of the policies proposed 
by Labour — “The reduced 
attractiveness - of the UK to 
foreign, investors and com- 
panies could be detrimental.” 

The most damaging conclu- 
sion in the 44 pages is that 
there are severe doubts as to 
the need for a state-sponsored 
investment bank. 

The conditions attaching to 
NIB finance could themselves 
act as a disincentive to those 
who might otherwise seek 
funds from the bank. These 
strings will probably include 
the requirement to draw up a 
business plan acceptable not 
just to management but also 
to the Government and 

Matters such as levels of 
employment, profit and cash 
flow forecasts as well as 
information on research 
would have to be disclosed to

When the number crunch- 
ing was over the TSB share 
offer attracted more than twice 
as many applicants as British 
Telecom — dabbed “the 
people's share." 

Perhaps it was the TSff’s 
own billing as the steal of the 
century that brought almost 5 
million applications for shares 
(writes Lawrence Lever). 

The overwhelming response 
has delayed the first day of 
dealings by two days to Octo- 
ber 10.

Pressure for a politically 
damaging rise in base rates 
will intensify this week, after 
foe failure of foe leading 
industrialized countries to 
agree new initiatives to hold 
exchange rates steady. 

The consensus was that, in 
foe absence of concrete new 
measures, there is nothing to 
stop the dollar's slide resum- 
ing. and foe pound's foil 

At their meeting on Sat- 
urday. the seven leading 
industrialized countries — foe 
US. Britain, West Germany, 
Japan, France, Canada ana 
Italy — agreed to focus on foe 
medium-term task of achiev- 
ing growth and stability for foe 
world economy, partly 
through the reduction of large 
payments imbalances. 

The Chancellor, Mr Nigel 
Lawson, said yesterday: “The 
last few days have seen an 
almost unhealthy preoccupa- 
tion, in foe markets and the 
Press, with very short-term 
concerns. It is time to revert to 
a longer perspective.” 

But Mr Lawson's attempt to 
steer foe speculators away 
from sterling looks doomed to 
failure. The foreign exchange 
markets had been waiting for 
foe outcome of foe weekend 
meetings and, because they 
■contained nothing new, seem 
certain to resume their attack, 
both on foe dollar and the 

British officials at the meet- 
ings here said the Chancellor 
had not come to Washington 
in foe expectation of a deal to 
prop up sterling. 

The key to the weekend 
meetings was West Germany’s 
determination to remove the 
question of interest rate cuts 
by the Bundesbank from foe 
international arena. The fi- 
nance minister, Herr Gerhard 
Stoltqnberg. appears to have 
persuaded foe US Treasury 
Secretary. Mr James Baker, 
that public statements on the 
need for lower rates in West 
Germany are counter- 

Mr Lawson faces a difficult 
task. If the pound's slide 
continues, then this would 
threaten to send inflation 
higher in foe run-up to the 
General Election. 

But if he acts by pushing up 
rates — and some City econo- 
mists argue that a two-point 
increase from the present 10 
percent level could be needed 
— the liming could hardly be 
worse with foe approach of the 
Conservative Party con- 
ference and foe British Gas 
flotation in November. 

The bland statement issued 
by the Group of Seven coun- 
tries late on Saturday hardly 
concealed foe big policy dif- 
ferences which remain be- 
tween the US and Europe.

IMF forecasts UK

Channel Tunnel should 
make £154m in first year 

By Lawrence Lever 

Modest rates of interest and 
inflation underpin the finan- 
cial projections for the Chan- 
nel Tunnel, according to the 
pathfinder prospectus pub- 
lished today. The prospectus 
paves the way for a £200. 
million private placing to raise 
the second tranche of equity 
for the project. 

The prospectus, which cau- 
tions that investment in the 
project “should be regarded at 
this stage as speculative," 
assumes a base rate of 9 per 
cent for the .financial 

These projections — which 
estimate a profit of £154 
million in the first year the 
Channel Tunnel becomes op- 

erational — also assume that 
the project’s costs and rev- 
enues will be increased by 
between 3.5 and 6 percent as a 
result of in flation. 

Eurotunnel, the Anglo- 
French consortium chosen to 
implement the Channel Tun- 
nel project, has estimated foal 
its interest and financing costs 
will come to just over £1 

The prospectus also makes 
it clear foal the banks, which 
have agreed in principle to 
provide £5 billion in loans and 
standby facilities, do not re- 
gard themselves as under any 
legal responsibility to fulfil 
their commitments.

the new gilts market is to be 
held on October 18, a week 
before foe market opens. The

He has twice approached Sir

The International Monetary 
Fund sees only a modest 
upturn in world growth next 
year and is gloomy about 
prospects for Britain. Its latest 
World Economic Outlook, 
published in Washington yes-

remaining sluggish and a shift 
into deficit on foe balance of 

The IMF's balance of pay- 
ments prediction for Britain is 
particularly embarrassing for 
the Treasury, which has been 
insisting that the underlying 
current account position re- 
' mains strong, despite a run of 
gloomy trade figures. 

IMF projections are for a 
current account deficit of $1.3 
billion (£900 million) next 
year, after a surplus of $23 
billion this year. This would 
be the first full-year balance of 
payments deficit since 1979. 

Growth in foe industrial 
countries is expected to av- 
erage 3.1 per cent next year, 
after 27 per cent growth this 
year. But Britain is expected to 
grow at a rate of only 2J per 
cent, after 24 per cent this 

The IMF forecasters do not 
believe West German claims 
of a strong upturn in the 
economy next year. Growth is 

expected to continue at foe 
same 3 per cent pace as this 
year. But a pick-up, from 27 
to 3.5 per cent, is expected in 
foe US. 

Pan of foe difference be- 
tween US and West German 
growth rates next year comes 
from foe expectation that 
there will be no widening of 
the US current account deficit 
— it is forecast to be $123 
billion both this year and next 
while the West German sur- 
plus declines from $30.8 bil- 
lion to $25.5 billion. The 
Japanese surplus is also fore- 
cast to decline modestly, from 
$827 billion to $74.1 billion. 

Inflation in the industrial 
countries is expected to edge 
down from 3.3 to 11 percent, 
on average. In Britain, foe rate 
is forecast at 3.7 per cent next 
year, from 3.8 per cent 

The IMF expects foe biggest 
payments imbalances to con- 
tinue. “While foe exchange 
rate changes that have taken 
place in the last 18 months 
have succeeded in arresting 
and partially reversing foe 
earlier unsustainable trends in 
external positions," foe re- 
ports says, “they will not be 
sufficient by themselves to 
restore a fully viable pattern of 
payments balances in the 
three largest countries.”

Months of speculation 
aided on Friday when China 
opened in Shanghai its first 
Stock Exchange since 1949.

Western observers by sur- 
prise. In the last year some 
Western and Chtoese analysts

Hutchison chief appeals 
against insider’ ruling 

From Stephen Leather, 
Hong Kong 

One of Hong Kong's richest 
and most powerful business- 
men goes into court today in a 
bid to clear his name. 

Li Ka-shing — whose 
Hutchison Whampoa trading 
group is negotiating with 
Britain's Pearson Group over 
possible commercial links - 
was branded as an insider 
dealer by the Crown Colony's 
Insider Dealing Tribunal in 
April this year. 

Insider dealing is not a 
criminal offence in Hong 
Kong, and no penalties are 

All that happened when Li 
Ka-shing, chairman of 
Hutchison and the Cheung 
Kong trading group, and Mr 
Geo ige Magnus, his deputy 
chairman, and three other 
directors. Mr George Zang. 
Mr Albert Chow and Chow

billionaire Li Ka-shing, but his 
appearance in the Supreme 
Court today is more than just 
a matter of saving face. Before 
the end of the decade he wants 
at least one quarter of 
Hutchison's income to come 
from overseas — hence the 
talks with Pearson. 

The last thing he wants is to 
be thought of in the City and 
Wall Street as the first man in 
Hong Kong to be named as an 
insider dealer. 

Therefore he is prepared to 

pay whatever price is nec- 
essary to clear his name and 
has flown over three of 
Britain's top QCs who hope to 
persuade a judge to set aside 
the tribunal's findings, if they 
do not win in the hearing, they

A seat on 
the board 
spurs US 
soccer fan 

By Cliff F^ftham 

Peace has broken out be- 
tween the American football 
fan who owns a big slice of 
Tottenham Hotspur, the only 
dub listed on the Stock Ex- 
change, and the board, which 
has been keeping a wary eye 
on his attacking moves. 

Mr Irving Brown, who left 
England to make a fortune in 
property in the US, is, flying 
into London at the Invitation 
of the club directors to watcb 
the match against Luton on 

Mr Brown, who owns 14 per 
cent of the club's shares, is 
hoping for a win to com- 
pensate for what is expected to 
be a less-than-happy day when 
Tottenham announces its 
financial results for the year. 

M I think they will have lost 
money," Mr Brown said. "But 
I still think my in vestment has 
bera worthwhile. I buy the 
shares whenever they drop — 
and they have done that often 

Since the shares were sold at 
lOOp three years ago, they 
have suffered almost as many 
setbacks as the team. The 
shares, which have fallen Co 
50p in the past, are now 
changing hands at 73p. 

The performance has dis- 
appointed Mr Paul Bobroff 
the club's chairman, and Mr 
Irving Scholar, the property 
entrepreneur, who master- 
minded the flotation. 

Their plans to expand the 
company through property 
developments and merchan- 
dising provide the key to the 
dub's future. But events on 
and off the field have not 
given them breathing space. 

The ban on teams taking 
part in European football has 
bitten into revenue and is 
reflected by a drop in atten- 
dances. In the first half of last 
year, Tottenham reported a 
pretax loss of £528,000. It was 
expected to have a better 
second half but the company 
will still finish in the red. 

Mr Brown says he has 
plenty of ideas on the property 
front to help his team but his 
overtures — particularly for a 
seat on the board — have 
always met with stout defen- 
sive play by Mr Bobroff and 
his colleagues who control 40 
per cent of the shares. 

Mr Brown added: "I have 
considerable stock in die com- 
pany and I think they realize 
that they have to . treat me 
right ' 


Balanced way to standard 
on inflation act 

The Accounting Standards 
Committee is having another 
shot at producing a definitive 
standard on, inflation 
accounting. This week, it 
intends to publish a booklet 
with its proposals on how a 
new standard may be 

After the fuss and 
embarrassment over SSAP 
16, the accountancy bodies 
are taking no- chances. This 
document will be in the 
nature of a discussion paper 
and allows full consultation 
with all interested parties 
before any new standard is 

It will nevertheless, con- 
tain proposals for current 
cost asset valuation which, it 
is hoped, will overcome the 
deficiencies of the historical 
cost method -while allowing 
flexibility. It is likely to allow 
a choice of two concepts of 
capital maintenance: com- 
panies can choose to opt for 
maintaining their operating 
capital or their financial cap- 
ital. The distinction between 
these concepts is described in 
the inset section. 

More difficult to overcome 
is the objection to current 
cost accounting since it relies 
on asset values which are 
bound to have an dement of 

Assets will be revalued 
using an index. The choice of 
index will be subjective, 
while the index itself is ' 
unlikely to be free from 
distortion. During a period of 
rapid technological change, at 
least pert of the rise in an 
index will be a reflection of 
improvements in the quality 
of some of its constituents. 

And there will always be 
.the objector who views any 
index as be might regard a 
sausage: the more he knows 
about what went into it, the 
less be likes it. But if the 
proposals give a useful result, 
perhaps the prize of greater 
usefulness can compensate . 
for reduced objectivity and 
the inadequacy of indices. 

The search for a satisfac- 
tory method of accounting 
for changing prices is not too 
invent at the moment When 
inflation is only 2.4 per cent 
prices double only every 29 
years. At an inflation rate of 5

A different government may

Historical cost accounts 
may be perfectly adequate for 
the purposes of Tunning a 
business when there is no, or 
low inflation. But in times of 
rapidly changing prices 
historical cost accounts have 
severe limitations. They dis- 
tort the undertying profit 

Dividends, which appear 
to be covered up to three 

times by profits, may hardly 
.be covered at all on a current 
cost basis. The chart shows 
how, in 1982, a sample of 
British companies thought it 
was paying out 50 per cent of 
earnings, but on a current 
cost basis was paying out 130 
per cent. Dividend payments 
exceeded earnings. 

Return on capital em- 
ployed is flattered by histori- 
cal cost accounts. Assets may 
cost significantly more to 
replace than the depreciated 
values shown on the balance 
sheet If the return on capital 
used were to be calculated on 
the cost of new assets, the 
business would look mud 
less profitable. ,■ 

Using 1982 for illustrative 
purposes, the chart shows 
that the companies which 
thought they were earning an 
average return on capital of 
nearly 15 per cent on an 
historical cost basis were, m - 
fact, making 'only half that on 
a current cost basis. 

Other distortions can oc- ' 
cur. What appears to be a 
tiring profit trend nfay, on 
adjustment for inflation, be a 
Ming real trend. 

It is possible that inflation 
could return to double fig- 
ures.Ifthis happens, accoun- 
tancy bodies are determined 
not to be caught unawares.

A review of the Company’s 
performance and prospects by new 
Chairman Christopher Harding, 

661 have one immediate 
objective for the group, to 
combine business success 
zuith public acceptability. 9 9 


British Nuclear Fuels saw 
turnover increase by some 15% to - 
£629M, with home sales improving by 
over 21% to £507M. Exports stood at 
£L22M, only 5% lower than the record 
level set in 1985, while investment rose 
from £367M to £446M in 1986. 

Despite an increase in turnover of 
£84M, the pre-tax profit is down to 
£44M from £68M last year and the 
dividend is lowered to £82M. 

There were two main reasons for 
the downturn. Additional provisions 
were needed for the cost of encapsulat- 
ing, storing and disposing of waste and 
for improvements in effluent treatment 
facilities. The new Fuel Handling 
Plant has taken longer than expected 
to come up to the desired production 
levels. It was one of the biggest and 
most complex construction projects 
ever undertaken at Sellafield 
and commissioning operations have 
reflected its complexity 



























u On construction and research 
and development we shall be 
spending over £1M every day far the 
next ten years,” 

The commissioning of SKEP - 
The Site Ion Exchange Effluent Plant- 
has halved low level radioactive 
effluent discharges at SeUafield. Our 

aim is to bring these levels down to as 
near zero as makes no difference. To 
achieve this, new plants have already 
been approved which are due to come 
on stream in the early 1990’s. 

“Our investment programmeand 
healthy order book provide jobs for 
16,000 people and underwrite the 
jobs of some 50,000 more ” 

Our business prospects look 
extremely encouraging. We recently 
signed contracts with the Central 
Electricity Generating Board and the 
South of Scotland Electricity Board, to 
undertake reprocessing work in the 
Thermal Oxide Reprocessing Plant- 
THORP - when it is commissioned in 
the next decade. These contracts, 
together with those already signed by 
overseas customers are worth over 
£4,000M during the first ten years of 
the plant’s operation. 

“It must be emphasised, that no cost 
reductions made at the 
expense of safety. Indeed, we do not 
have a business unless we have a 
safe business. 99 

The public quite rightly expects 
us to meet the tightest safety and 
environmental standards, even more 
stringent than in other industries. We 
accept that The public also expects 
nuclear power to remain competitive. 
So we must look for constant 
improvements in our operations. 

The public needs to know all 
about us. That is the reason we have 
initiated an advertising campaign 
which invites people to see Sellaftekl 
for themselves, hi doing this we are 
pursuing our aim of not only being 
open, but of being seat to be open. 

“Chernobyl -there are lessons we 
can all learn. ” 

Even though Chemobyi-type 
reactors would not be allowed to 

operate in this country and though the 
BNFL Group itself is a relatively minor 
reactor operator we are obviously 
keen to find out what went wrong and 
to share the knowledge gained on the 
effects of radiation. 

“We cart meet the nation’s need for 
inexpensive electricity without 
exhausting our reserves of fossil fud? 

The demand for energy is 
expected to increase by 2 per cent per 
annum to meet the needs of an 
expanding world population. At that 
rate the probable reserves of oil and 
gas will run out sometime around the 
middle of the next century, while the 
world’s coal is estimated to run out not 
much later Renewable energy sources 
are expected to meet only a small 
fraction of the world’s requirements. 

By contrast there is an almost 
limitless supply of uranium. 
Consequently nuclear energy will 
continue to be in demand. The import-- 
ance of cheap nuclear-powered 
electricity to Britain cannot be under- 
stated. But we have to take the public 
with us. We must make every effort to 

inform them that this 

industry has integrity, 
is safe, efficient 
and beneficial.

lottery in which the prizes may be 
small, but there are plenty of them. 
And the Treasury does not take a cut. 
But what has it to do with 

In theory, the sale of shares in the 
TSB has been the purest example of 
privatization. The Government de- 
cided that no-one owned the banks. So 
the question of state asset sales and 
the motive of raising revenue did not 
arise. In those circumstances, the 
virtues of privatization should be 
wholly to the fore. In practice, the 
form of the TSB sale undermines 
some of those virtues. 

Transferring state-controlled com- 
panies to the private sector com- 
mands general public acceptance, 
because 11 combines common sense 

moving the TSBs into the private 
sector are so compelling that even the 
Labour Party has not threatened to 
renationalizc them. Unfortunately, 
the idea acquired a bureaucratic 
momentum — familiar to those who 
live near Stansted — that saw logical 
difficulties as mere obstacles to the 
conventional privatization process. 

When Treasury lawyers decided no- 
one owned the banks, this was 
enshrined in legislation, so that sales 
proceeds would go into the TSB. with 
little view to the consequences. To 
maintain the usual pattern, a massive 
caspital-raising exercise was mounted, 
not because the TSB needs the money, 
but to dilute the giveaway. 

Finally, the Law Lords ruled that 
the TSBs had belonged to organs of 
the state before the 19S5 TSB Act. By 
then, however, the bargain launch had 
been booked as a taster to the more 
important and difficult flotation of 
British Gas. The Solicitor General

^ Japan Air Lines is the only airline 
to bring Tokyo even closer to London. 

In fact by operating non-stop 
flights from London to Tokyo, we 
offer the fastest route to japan from 
the UK. 

The flights leave Heathrow at 
1920 every Tuesday, arriving in Tokyo, 
on Wednesday at 1455 saving almost 
6 hours on normal flight times. 

On all other days we offer one- 
stop flights from Heathrow to Tokyo 
via Anchorage, including two on 

And from Paris we have evening 
non-stop flights on Saturdays and 
Sundays as well as Thursdays during 

So when it comes to flying east 
with us, one thing's for sure. We're 
way ahead of anyone else.

A state of confusion on 
US policy for dollar 

American policy on - the 
value of the dollar is in a date 
of ■ tom disorder, and the 
markets ' are being 
“whipsawed" as contradictory 
statements are made by the 
Secretary to the Treasury, Mr 
James Baker, the duet econo- 
mist in the Department of 
Cotnrnerce, Mr Robert 
^jOrtner, and the chairman of 
the Federal Reserve Board, 
Mr Paul Volcker. , 

Meanwhile, speculation 
about possible big European 
intervention in the currency 
markets to support foe dollar 
has. encouraged a sharp 
improvement in the dollar 
this week. 

The -.trouble and confusion 
began on September 18 when 
Mr -Baker, evidently trying to 
force the Japanese and foe 
Germans into more expansive 
economic policies, announced 
that the. dollar would have to 
go down m ucfr further. 
u On Monday the dollar 
rosesharply on speculation 
about massive European 
intervention to come in sup- 
port of the dollar. There was 
no evidence, of this, but the 
currency fixtures markets in 
New York plunged. The 
December mark fell 108 
points (the December pound 
was down I9S points), the 
Swiss franc 121 points and the 
yen' 7 1 points. 

On - ‘ Tuesday the dollar 
continued to rise but ai a 
slower pace. On Wednesday 
Mr Volcker told Congress that 
the dollar had reached a point 
, at which US companies could 
compete with foreign ones, 
and that there was no need for 

From Maxwell Newton, New York 

any further decline to the 
dollar on the scale of the 
previous 12 months. 

He was contradicted by an 
unnamed. Administration 
spokesmen and by Mr Ortner, 
.who said the dollar must come 
down more. 

It appeals that Mr Volcker 
has thus thrown in his lot with 
the Bundesbank and in oppo- 
sition to the US Treasury 
which, through Mr Baker, has 
been arguing strenuously that 
a further devaluation of the 
dollar is needed. 

Support for a further major 

— and broader — devaluation 
came from the new index of 
foe trade-weighted dollar, 
-based on 1985 weights, cover- 
ing about three-quarters ofUS 
trade and published last week 
by the Manufacturers Hano- 
ver Trust 

This index — it is. much 
broader and much more up- 
to-date than the old Fed index 

— showed that the dollar has 
been devalued by no more 
than 4 per cent since the peak 
in February, 1985. Further 
evidence of high-level scep- 
ticism about the value of foe 
dollar also came from two 
banks — Morgan Stanley and 
Morgan Guaranty. 

Studies by these banks 
make it dear that foe dollar 
must move considerably 
lower before there is any 
chance of substantially easing 
foe deflationary pressiire on- 
US growth and US indnstxy. 

Mr Stephen Roach, senior 
economist at Moran Stanley, 
writes in the bank’s Economic 
Perspectives: “The Hnk be-, 
tween foreign exchange rales 

and import pries is the add 
test of the power of currency 
adjustments to evoke shifts in 
trading patterns. 

“Since import prices have 
not risen enough to redirect 
purchases back to domes- 
tically-produced goods, a pol- 
icy of 'dollar management' 
simply has not worked. Con- 
sequently. the US economy 
could well be facing a chronic 
deficit in merchandise trade. 

“This spells bad news for 
policymakers and for foe US 
manufacturers who continue 
to bank on the alluring sharp 
of foe ever-elusive J-curve." 

Morgan Guaranty in its 
Economic Quarterly, says: 
“The key trouble with 
e m brac in g a more positive 
near-term view (of foe econ- 
omy) is that, alongside the tew 
upbeat hems that can be cited, 
there continue to be a lot of 
worrisome negatives. 

“Most important of these. 

* ter, is this country's trade 

Hints. Contrary to afl hope 

generated by foe' massive 
depredation of foe dollar that 
. has occurred since early 1985, 
there is simply little" or no 
evidence yet that either export 
or import patterns are 

“Indeed. July's $18 billion 
trade deficit, while prelimi- 
nary and subject to revision, 
emphasized fom foe nadir 
may not have been reached. 
All in all, recent trends suggest 
that foe depredation ofthe 
dollar may not have gone ter 
enough — or been broad 
enough — to alter purchasing 
decisions in a major way.” 





By Alison Eadie 
■ The standstill agreement on 
litigation between Lloyd's 
names on PCW syndicates and 
potential defendants has beet 
extended yet again. 

The agreement was due to 
expire tomorrow, raising the 
Spectre of multi- milli on 
pound lawsuit by the names, 
tn fwwt it has hear extended 

on a 21-day rolling basis. The 
defendants have agreed not to 
plead Che statute of 

The agreement has beat 
extended, although there are 
no immediate signs ofa settle-, 
meat to the protracted PCW 
affair. Lloyd's, itself a defen- 
dant, has been working to- 
wards a settlement with both 
names and defendants, 
particularly the large brokers. 
However, the crucial stage of 
spelling oat who should pay 
what has not been reached. 
Gross losses of the PCW 
syndicates stand at £380 mil- 
lion which nets down to £235 
million after taking account of 
fnciating cash potential 

ransmrance recoveries. 

Lloyd's maintains that 
names w31 have to make a 
substantial contribution to the 
losses hot has not said how 
much. Names, whose losses 
were partly attributable to 
fraud, are unwilling to pay 
much, because they feel they 
have a very good legal case for 

The brokers are also pub- 
licly maintaining their stance 
that they have no legal liabil- 
ity for the losses. 

A further complication is 
foe allocation of losses be- 
tween individual names. 


Stabilizing sterling is the key 

The cry at foe Bank of 
England last week was “finer* 
and it was the same ay in foe 
market as investors staggered 
to foe exits. Trade figures for 
August, foe worst, turned 
traders' dreams to ashes. 
How long ago seemed April 
with its 8.5 per cent yields. 

In retrospect, foe spring 
rally can be seen as having 
been based primarily cm 
international factors. They 
included foe tell in oil and 
other raw material, prices, a 
commitment to stringent fis- 
cal policies in most industrial 
countries and foe success of 
the Plaza Agreement. 

Lower ofl prices helped in 
foe obvious sense that they 
prompted a general down- 
ward revision of inflation 
forecasts. They also shifted 
funds away froxn oil produc- 
ers towards oil consumers, 
impoverishing short-term 
borrowers and enriching 
long-term savers. 

The history of foe United 
States yield curve tells foe 
story of changing supply and 
demand pressures in foe mar- 
ket place: At December 31, 
1985, US three-month Trea- 
sury bills yielded 7J26 per 
cent while the 30-year Trea- 
sury long bond gave a return 
of 9.27 per cent By May, foe 
bill yield was 99 basis points 
down at 6.27 per cent but foe 
bond yield had fallen 178 
basis points; to 7.49 percent 
Consistent with this pattern, 
foe most recent firming in oil 
prices has been accompanied 
by a widening in the 
bill/bond yield differential 
back out to 230 basis points. 

Bond markets also saw 
fiscal policies as broadly 
favourable. Even in tire 
United States the spirit of 

Gramm-Rudman seemed to 
introduce a new element into 
the political debate which 
promised to eliminate inter- 
national imbalances and 
usher in a period of orderly 
economic progress. 

American policy makers 
undertook their budget-cut- 
ting initiative -as their 
contribution to the so-called 
G-5 process, in which foe 
leading industrial countries 
agreed to pursue their eco- 
nomic objectives in concert. 

The Plaza Agreement of 
foe G-5 called for a fall in foe 
dollar's exchange rate. This 
was quickly achieved, with 
remarkably little effort on the 
part of foe central banks 
concerned- No wonder, there- 
fore, that markets began to 
entertain hopes that other 
objectives, such as real in- 
terest rate reductions, might 
be just as easily effected. 

British gilts, to be sure, 
responded less to the mood of 
optimism than did some 
other major bond markets. 
Nevertheless, two hopes sus- 
tained foe gilt market at 8.5 
per cent yields in April. One 
was that foe beneficial impact 
of foe favourable teciors 
would be even greater than 
foe forecasters were indicat- 
ing. This would have been a 
reasonable expectation if the 
world had been moving out 
of its accident-prone state of 
the 1970s and early 1980s 
into a more serene era. The 
other hope was that Britain 
would, in a less hostile inter- 
national environment, find it 
increasingly easy to solve its 
economic problems and close 
the performance lag relative 
to the other industrial na- 
tions. This, in turn, would 
help to assure a settled politi- 

cal prospect for the country. 

One by one. these hopes, 
and foe assumptions on 
which they were based, have 
fallen away, leaving investors 
to confront the realities of 
balance of payments 
deterioration and stubbornly 
high domestic cost increases 
being met by flaccid fiscal 
and monelary policies. 

So, foe oil price has backed 
up and will probably be 
supported seeing that a re- 
lapse is in no-one's interest. 
The American authorities 
would hardly welcome foe 
“all-out” from a cut in the oil 
price lo SS. or even $10, per 
barrel for American oil com- 
panies and for foe American 
banks which are committed 
to them. 

The Federal Reserve's 
credit policy is not 
“inflationist” in foe sense 
that the United States central 
bank is actively seeking to 
reverse foe process of dis- 
inflation which has been 
under way since 1982. For foe 
American bond market it 
must now seem a sure-fire bet 
that monetary accommoda- 
tion will continue until infla- 
tion returns to foe 4 per cent 
or so rate that would take 
enough hard-pressed bor- 
rowers o!T the hook to rescue 
the American banking 

It is no longer a question of 
whether inflation will return 
but a question of when and 
will the Federal Reserve be 
able to contain inflation to 
the gentle rate it desires. 

Gilts are not likely to gain 
much encouragement from 
this international back- 
ground. That leaves foe mar- 
ket dependent on domestic 
influences, chief among 

which arc inflation prospects. 
Even Government spokes- 
men are saying that 14 per 
cent represents a trough for 
this year. Inflation is now set 
to pick up. perhaps dose to 5 
per cent by foe end of next 

Such a projection, how- 
ever, rests on foe assumption 
that the Government will be 
able to stabilize sterling 
around the 70 effective rate 
level. Should sterling be 
weaker than this, inflation 
would turn out higher. As a 
rough rule of thumb, each 5 
per cent sustained fall in 
sterling would alone add 
about one percentage point to 
inflation by foe end of next 

Long-dated gilt yields in 
the current 10.25-10.5 per 
cent range probably fully 
discount a prospective 5 per 
cent inflation rate. The index- 
linked issues are yielding 3.5 
percent so current long yields 
have a reasonably wide risk 
premium built into them. 

If. however, sterling were 
to slip further, making 6 per 
cent or higher inflation dur- 
ing 1987 a likely prospect, the 
present yields on “longs" 
might appear too thin. Much 
depends, therefore, on foe 
authorities' ability to stabilize 

If they take decisive mea- 
sures to support the pound 
through a rise in short-term 
interest rates, as seems likely 
sooner or later, that would be 
the signal gilt investors need 
to be assured that it is safe to 
begin accumulating stock

The Channel Tunnel 
starts at Glasgow 

. By the spring of 1993, there will be a fast, reliable service . . 

fom as far north as Glasgow or Edinburgh to connect you and 
your freight with all of the major European cities The journey 
will be faster and more convenient than ever before and it will 
be made possible by the Channel Tunnel - which will be started 
next autumn. 

The investment required is large, but so are 
the rewards for the whole of Britain. In its first 
year of operation, there should be over 
1 * 15 million passenger journeys by rail 
through the Tunnel, plus the millions 
of cars and their passengers to be 
transported by Eurotunnel's shuttle 

British Rail is not re-drawing the 
railway map only for passenger In the 
Tunnel's first year we expect to carry six 
million tonnes of freight Over 70 per 
cent of this frei g ht will ori g inate or 
terminate beyond the London area 

The resulting environmental 
benefits of relieving the road system 
of the equivalent of 1,500 huge lorries 
every single day can easily be imagined. 

In addition to the billions of 
pounds being raised by other investors 
for the Tunnel itself, British Rail alone 
is investing £400 million both in im- 
proving stations and in building new 
180 mph trains. 

Employment in the UK construction 
industry stands to benefit widely from the 
building of the Tunnel and British Rail's own 
investment will create new job opportunities in the 
midlands and the north of England for railway equip- 
ment and manufacturers. 

London to teris in only three and a quarter hours, 
with departures every hour of the day? Of course 

But there's a lot more than that for the whole 
of Britain. ^

Group of Seven ministers 
issue 9-point statement 

This is the full text of the 
nine-point statement issued 
by the Group of Seven finance 
ministers in Washington on 

1. The finance ministers of 
seven major industrialized 
countries met today to con- 
duct the first exercise of 
multilateral surveillance 
pursuant to the Tokyo Eco- 
nomic Declaration of their 
beads of state or government 
of May 6, 1986. The managing, 
director of the International 
Monetary Fund also, partici- 
pated in this meeting.' 

1 The ministers reviewed 
recent economic develop- 
ments and their economic 
objectives and forecasts 
collectively, using a range of 
economic indicators, with a 
particular view to examining 
their mutual comparability 
and to considering the need 
for remedial measures. 

3. The ministers noted that 
progress had been made in 
promoting steady, non-infla- 
tion ary growth in their 

4. There is broad agreement 
among the ministers on the 

j economic outlook in their 
countries: prospects for fur- 
ther growth in 1987 are gen- 
erally favourable, and more 
jobs will be created, although 
the level of unemployment 
will remain high in some 
countries. Inflation is likely to 
remain low. Interest rates 
have fallen with particular 
beneficial effects for indebted 
developing countries. 

5. However, the ministers 
noted that the present scale of 
some current account im- 
balances cannot be sustained. 
The exchange rate changes 
since last year are making an 
important' contribution to- 
wards redressing these im- 
balances. and their full effects 
will increasingly come 
through in the period ahead. 

6. The ministers agreed that 
co-operative efforts need to be

i Reserve Board chairman, at the Washington talks. 

intensified in order to reduce 
the imbalances in the context 
of an. open, growing world 
economy. They noted, in this 
connection, that economic 
growth in surplus countries 
was improving, but such 
growth will need to be sus- 
tained — and in some cases 
increased. Countries with ma- 
jor deficits must follow poli- 
cies which will foster 
significant reductions in their 
externa] deficits, and they 
committed themselves, 
among other things, to make 
further progress in reducing 
their budget deficits in order 
to free resources to the ex- 
ternal sector. These actions 
should help stabilize exchange 
rates, and all are necessary so 
that imbalances can be re- 
duced sufficiently without fur- 
ther significant exchange rate 

7. In the circumstances, the 
Ministers agreed that the poli- 
cies of all countries during the 

period immediately ahead 
would be formulated with the

Decision on trade 

mark office today 

By Anne Warden 

London’s choice of a site for 
the proposed European 
Community trade mark office 
is to be announced today by 
Mr Geoffrey Pattie, Minister 
of State for Industry and 
, Information Technology. 

It is thought likely to (all on 
a 90.000 sq ft office and shops 
development with a piazza 
and access to the river at St 
Katharine’s Dock, East 
j London. 

Another leading contender 
is a £30 million scheme for 
shops, offices, an hotel and a 
conference centre at Harrow, 
West London. Two other sites . 

— at Croydon, South London, 
and at Cockspur Street near 
Trafalgar Square — have been 

London’s rivals for the EEC 
institution, expected to be in 
operation by 1988 or 1989, are 
Munich, The Hague and 

- The. trade markoffice would 
be the first EEC institution to 
have its headquarters in Brit- 
ain. if London were chosen. 
The office would bring^an 
initial 200 jobs. 

The European Commission 
has asked for the bids to be in 
by this Tuesday.

A change of roles in mid-act 

I never really considered whether going 
to university was right for me or noL It 
was just assumed by everyone, myself 
included, that ifl could get in I would go. 

When the time came to apply to 
universities through UCCA, it was dear* 
that ray preference for English was 
reflected in my performance m that 
subject so I applied to read English. 

The three year course at Oxford is not 
perhaps the best constructed in the 
country, nor the most vocationally 
useful, but 1 thoroughly enjoyed my time 
there, learning all the things one is 
supposed to learn at university apart 
from one's specialization. 

What mattered more was that ! was 
able to continue acting, my great love 
since childhood, and later to try my hand 
at directing. With this experience of

. . . . . having been interested and involved in 

working in theatre, even on the amateur drama for some time but not to have

wanted to do. I was neither going over old ground nor

I was advised by a tutor at Oxford that Now, it was a different stoiy. I was told 
university carp- would demand an that the MA had not really qualified me 

for the profession and all advised me 
against entering it 

I wrote to every theatre in London 
outside the West End offering to work for 
nothing, just to gain the vital experience. 
Only one replied: five months later, I still 
await the outcome. 

' I have now come to realise that any 
- chances of theatre-related work, enthu- 
siasm and qualifications notwithstand- 
ing. are remote. 

I have the option of a place on a 
teacher training course but frankly 
wonder whether teaching is the right 
choice. As long as there are such doubts 
it would be unwise (not to say unfair to 
any future pupils) for me to proceed. 

So 1 have started to look at other career 
possibilities. The most attractive is 
advertising, because it combines the

experience for a professional acting 
career. Directing, too, - as it usually 
derives from an ability to act, seemed 
ruled out. So I began to look into the 
possibilities of teaching drama in adult, 
further or higher education. 

1 was advised by a tutor at Oxford that 
a university career would demand an 
M.Phil qualification at least, more likely 
a Ph.D. and that I did not have the 
ability for that sort of study. He did 
suggest that a one-year MA course might 
be more suitable and said that this

academic life. A few years ago it might 
have done, but cuts in arts funding now 
meant that even the most junior 
lectorships were going to highly quaii-

1 approached Oxford's career service of the laader. 

to inquire further, but they told me to 
forget this “too ambitions" scheme and, 
apply for the standard teaching qualifica- 
tion course. 

I explained that the kind of drama I 
wanted to teach was more specialised 
and time consuming than could be 
taught in any school, however excellent 
the facilities. But I was firmly told that I 
would be perfectly happy teaching in 
secondary schools and should forget any 
other notions. 

' Nevertheless, for my own education, if 

I faced two alternatives: either to 
embark on a Ph.D after all, which I was 
not advised I was capable of undertak- 
ing, or to return to the teacher training 
idea. For reasons of time, money and, 
despite encouragement, uncertainty as to 
my own ability, I abandoned the idea of 
the PhJDand applied for teacher training 

Teachers, both experienced , and in 
training, told me how depressing, under- 
acknowledged and soul-destroying they 
fouhdL their wort. They saw little hope 

creativity which has been the motivating 
factor in my degree courses with a need 
to understand media-to-audience 
relationships, vital to directing plays, in 
an intelligent and stimulating 

A number of friends from Oxford days 
are in advertising and like it. Thor 
enthusiasm is an attraction in itself 
especially when the alternative is to start 
my working life m teaching, a profession 
sadly characterized by despondency. 

1 have, of course, to consider my own 
suitability for a career in advertising; 
responses from speculative letters I have 
written to graduate recruiters have been 
favourable, but graduate entry into 
advertising is largely confined to the 
milk round which starts in December, so 
1 have now to make the choice — 
teaching or advertising? 

But although the prospect of doing 
something completely new in an area 
where promotion and pay would be 
linked to my ability and performance 
and where the status of the work would 
reflect my educational attainment is 
appealing, I still find it hard to accept 
that I will probably have to leave behind 
the work I have been doing; and abandon 
the career for which I have been 
preparing for the last 14 of my 23 years.

Warning signs for England 

By David Hands 
Rngby Correspondent 

Scotland XV. 



Had Japan kicked their goals 
at MurrayfWd on Saturday, 
then they. too. would have 
scored 33 points. Thai conve- 
niently ignores the three penalty 
attempts and three conversions 
which Dods missal, hut H does 
indicate Japan's scoring poten- 
tial which England fece m 12 
days* time. If Kktsnhxro Matsho 
strides out at Twickenham with 
his ticking boots on, it will be an 
interesting confrontation. 

Scotland's performance was 
full of tarty-warning signs for 
England. Their scrum was com- 
pletely unable to move the 
Japanese pack, they lost 
concentration in the final quar- 
ter and conceded three tries (two 
from set scrams), they lacked 
match fitness, and prayed so 
poorly behind foe scrum that, 
when Japan were able to string 
passes together going forward, 
they looked formidable 

Scotland’s display, however, 
which brought them victory by 
three goals, three tries and a 
penalty goal to three tries, a 
penalty and a drop goal, was 
redeemed by Iwan Tukalo on 
the left wing. Even though there 
seemed no obvious intent to 
move the ball his way, he made 
so much of bis possession that 
be scored four tries, mulching 
the four sea red by BUI Gamxneu 
against Japan in 1377 (though 
two Scottish players, 
W. A. Stewart and, twice, 
L S. Smith, both scored four 
tries in fiill internationals 

Tukalo played only because 
Baird dropped out on Thursday 
with a groin strain, but the 
Selkirk wing poses- a consid- 
erable threat to Baird's long- 
held place. Even' allowing for 
Japanese naivety in the tackle, 
he has a lovely swerve and is 
swifter than most into his stride. 
He dodged inside three men for 
his first try, shrugged off two 
tackles for his second, and made 
the collection of ICeris excellent 
kick to the comer look easy for 

It was his first try which 
helped the Scots to a 13-6 halt 
time lead but, early in foe 
second half, there was a six- 
minute delay before Taione was 
carried off on a stretcher. It was 
feared the Tongsn flanker had a 
spinal injury, hence the reluc- 
tance to move him, but h 
proved to be a leg was 
immediately after that foe roof 
fell in on Japan as the Soots 
scored four tries, within nine

Bridgend deserve 
to be light-headed 

The scram is a focal point of 
Japan's domestic game and 
Chida, the No 8. was able to 
yiand off so comfortable were 
bis front five. Their binding 
technique, which effectively 
shields the hooker from, oppo- 
sition pressure, . gave .Derrick 
Gram. Scotland's coach, food 
for thought as did the fluidity of 
their passing. “I was very im- 
pressed with the handling of 
their backs and their running 
which was very direct" Grant 
said. “They knew exactly what 
they wanted to do, their passing 
was very fast and I think we 
could leant from them.” 

That passing derives, in part, 
from their inability to make 
through sheer, physical 
so the tell must do foe 
work instead 

Two long, fiat passes, which 
completed negated the defence, 
gave On old his try and began 
the Japanese domination of foe 
final quarter. “We didn't want 
our players to be fully match fit 
at iHfc stage of what will be a' 
long season and it showed late in 
the game" Grant said. "Even so, 
some of their passing is so quick 
you tend to become mesmerised 
and we became ball watchers a 
little bit.". . .

After the disappointment- of 
-Bridgend's defeat against: Sara-

from his team's performances

What is certain is t bat -if 

which Bishop put to obvious 
effect, charging close to them, or 
teasing the opposition with his 
variety of kicks. But they suc- 
ceeded little this time. 

Bradshaw scored, a marvel- 
lous try for .the home team in the 
third minute after a superb

their Own half. Although the 
visitors ruled most of the time 
they could only manage a drop

for tour 

By David Hands 

jock Hobbs, the Camcrtwy 
flanker who captained the New 
Zealand Gtyahets for much of 
their unofficial four to South 
Africa during foe summer, has 
been reinstated as captain of his 
couniry'sofiictal team. Hobbs, a 
26 -year-old lawyer, will lead the 
tour party of -6 which begins an 
eight-match visit to France next 
month. , _ . 

He takes over from David 

Kirk, the Auckland scrum half 
who ted New Zealand in inter- 
‘nationals against France and 
Australia during the summer, 
but who now pays the pciralty 
for the loss of the Bledirtoe Cup 
series aeiinst the WaDabies. 
Kirk was due to take up a 
Rhodes scholarship to Oxfoni 
University this autumn but he 
fine postponed this and will be 
touring France instead. 

Hobbs is one of 10 Cavaliers 
■(the name given to the tour 
party to South Africa) chosen 
for foe French trip. Three or 
them, Crowley, Green and Fol, 
are backs: foe others, Sheirord, 
Hobbs. Shaw, Whetton. Pierce. 
McDowell and Reid, are for- 
wards. It is no surprise to find 
them in foe party, once the New 
Zealand council had decreed 
They were to serve no marc than 
a two-match suspension for 
making the unofficial four, the 
selectors were at liberty to 
choose whom they wished. 

Brian Lochore, who will coa- 
ch the party, said: “This tour is 
important for us. We want lo 
beat France, and if we can’t 
achieve our aimyover there we 
will have worries in the World 
Cup next year”. There may also 
be something of a behind-the- 
scenes power struggle between 
Lochore and ' his co-selector. 
Cblin Meads, who coached foe 

There was tacit 
acknowledgement in New Zea- 
land that foe return of the 
Cavaliers after the first match 
against Australia meant that 
Meads had had his way against 
the wishes of Lochore who 
might have preferred foe “baby 
All Blacks" who served him so 
well against France in New 
Zealan d this summer, and in the 
first international against 

The main surprise in the party 
is the inclusion of John 
Gallagher, foe Wellington utility 
back, who has squeezed out 
Cooper, foe Auckland full back. 
But Gallagher, aged 32, has been 
outstanding at centre and full 
back for his province, as well as 
scoring over ISO points in their 
championship season. Also in- 
cluded in tbe backs is Many 
Berry, who won his first cap in 
the dosing stages of the last 
international against Australia 
and wbo played last season with 
Glasgow Academicals. -

was favoured to go- in the loose-

Veterans get a fright 
from the youngsters 

Sun sets in the west on 

Saffron Walden . 


Youth showed scant respect 
for seniority in this &st round 
John Player Cup tie. Saffron 
Walden, aged 23, proved a 
sprightly proposition for 
Blackheath, the Club of 128 
years standing, and lost by 
only a goal and a penalty goal 
to two tries and two penalties. 

Tony Bond, the former 
Lancashire and England 
centre, admitted afterwards 
that he had visions that his 
third match for Blackheath 
would end in disaster when a 
Saffron Walden goal dosed 
the gap to 9-10 with 20 
minutes remaining. He could 
not help remembering when 
Sale were beaten in tbe Cup by 
Wigton with the likes of Fran 
Cotton and Steve Smith in 
their side. But Blackheath 
were just fitter, although Bond 
finds their training sessions 
“nothing compared to Sale's.’ 

As expected Blackheath 
kept the game tight with Slack, 
their No 8 an obtrusive figure. 
Although Hursey, the 6 ft 8 in 
Blackheath captain, won some 
useful possession in the line 
out, Walden were not com- 
pletely humbled in this de- 
partment considering that 
they had three locks out of 

The commitment of the IS 
men of Essex rattled

10 by the home side) including 
two for collapsing foe scnim-

His first miss came after 
Parker had landed a~ penalty 
for Blackheath, and tbe un-

Then Reed scored the first of 
his two tries from close range, 
but Hughes managed a penal-

washardly a dull match —in fact, 
when Bath scored six tries last 
week at Moseley it was fer less 

Bristol heat Gloucester with 
four penalty goals kicked by 
Hogg to one penalty kicked by 
Smith. Points in the John 
Smith's Merit Table 'A‘ were at 
stake (and. now after two defeais 
Gloucester will find it difficult 
to head it again), but it was foe 
stimulus of local pride and 
tradition, not percentages, that 
lifted the game out of tbe rut, 
despite its rough edges and 
incidents. - . ' 

The rough edges were evident 
in some impetuous and mis- 
directed passing by both sides: a 
shame there should have been, 
these crossed lines in a match' 
sponsored by British Telecom. 
Two of foe rougher incidents 
involved Teague and Scrrvens. •

Little, foe referee, within a 
minute of each other in tbe first 
half If Hogg had kicked, foe 
penalties that followed. Bristol 
would have felt a trifle safer ax 
the interval when they led 6-3. 

Bristol won because they were 
more mobile in' the lineouts^ 
their cover defence was tireless; 
their running slraigh ter andf they 
were readier to take risks. 
Gloucester scarcely won any . 
lineouts and could not Com-

Coventry were unlucky to lose 
their scrum haffi Clark. 13 
minutes into the second half. 

Sale lost their fly haff 
Rafferty, in controversial 
circumstances after only five 
minutes. Rafferty chipped 
.ahead. Oulton collected and. 
with a return pass, gave Rafferty 
foe chance to break and kick on 
. again. But when a try seemed 
probable, he wasdeariy checked 
off the balL Tbe leg injury which 
lie sustained caused him to leave

Coven try ied at the mterval 
lhrough a try by Travers io 
Jen ion's first penalty: his second 

shortly after half-lime regaining 
Sale's lead. Tbe departure of 
Clark heralded a period of 
Coventry command, which 
seemed certain to earn victory, 
but Sale's defence • kept their 
line intact. Eventually Sale 
broke out of grim defence;

appreciating rare Coventry lar-

the lineout to score Sale's final

There were smiles to match 
the warmth of the autumn sun 
on the faces of Harwood and 
Stoute, too, at Ascot on Sat- 
urday when Dancing Brave 
and Green Desert were paid 
handsome compliments by 
the respective victories of Sure 
Blade and Hallgale.

Out of action with muscular 
problems since outlasting 
Green Desert in Royal Ascot's 
St James's Palace Stakes in 
June, Sure Blade, looking 
magnificent in the prelimi-

courage to peg back Lord

closing stages.

A furlong out I didn't think we 
were going to get there but

A jubilant Hills said: “ It's

Moon Madness staying on too

John Dunlop, trainer of Moon 
Madness, said: “The slow early 
pace was all against him and Pat 
Eddery says he definitely needs 
a kmgor trip nowadays." 

Geoff Lawson, a ssistan t to 
AUez MBonfs trainer. Guy 
Harwood, also believes that the 
distance of foe race was a key 
factor. “Oar fellow simply didn't 
stay at Doncaster and we were 
con fiden t he wmdd get his 
revenge today." 

Punters evidently did not

for a belated 
domestic success

~ f 

Sarah, who has been cam- 
paigned with great skill abroad 
this year, is nipped to gain his 
first domestic success of the 
season in the Harroways States 
at Goodwood this afternoon. 

Paul Cote placed Fahed 
Salman's- consistent five-year- 
old to win three group three 

races in the space ofsix weeks at 

Baden-Baden, Chantilly and 
Phoenix Park in early summer 
but it is 14 months since he won 
on homesofi. 

Those victories abroad were 
all gained over a mile but I still 
subscribe to the view that he is a 

better horse over seven furlongs, 

the distance over which he 
gained all but one of bis seven 
wins in 1984 and 1985. 

Further weight was added to 
this theory in the Waterford 
Crystal MUe ax Goodwood last 
month when Sarab led 
approaching the furlong marker 
bin was then swallowed up and 
finished sixth to Then Again. 

Sarab reverted to seven fur- 
longs for the Kjvetoo Park Steel 
States at -Doncaster earlier this 
month but met with trouble in 
running and in the circum- 
stances did well to finish fourth 
behind Hadcer, Moonlight Lady 
and Gwydion. 

The opposition today consists 
principally of upgraded handi- 
. cappers and it wul come as a 
surprise if Sarab foils to cope 
with the disappointing Lucky 
Ring and the progressive three- 
year-dds. Verdant Boy and

gineered a shock defeat for Park 
Express in the B landlord Slakes 
at The Curragh on Saturday 
when making all the nwomg to 
take the event for a second 
successive year on the David 
O’Brien-trained Nemain. 

Roche settled Nemain four 
lengths ahead of Mashkour and 
set a sedate pace until the 
downhill run to the straig hi.

Roche quickened foe tempo on

odds-on to follow up her Phoe- 
nix Champion States triumph, 
joined Mashkour.

Arsenal....... q 

- It was not the first time 
during the afternoon that little 
muz Carr had found himself 
surrounded. Again he at- 
tempted to take _ on eafh 
— sometimes twice 
measure -before 
eventually leaving them be- 
hind. wide-eyed with wonder. 
One had to admit, though, 
that the autograph hunters 
had tackled him with a lot 
more success than the Arsenal 

l Eame is still new 'and wel- 
comed with a modest pride by 
•flte 20-year-okl winger who 
burst forth 11 months ago in 
this same fixture with the free 
spirit and brilliance of a 
butterfly that dazzled and 
sorely embarrassed Sansom, 
the England left back. 

• His moment, like that of a 
butterfly, seemed short lived, 
but now he is floating again, 
xur doubt frustrating team 
males as much as opposing 
full backs by his boyish reluc- 
tance to part with the ball once 
set into feverish motion. So 
nue is such an audacious 
talent these days that Notting- 
ham supporters cannot find it 
m their hearts to discourage 
him. Wildly cheering his each 
adventure, successful or other- 

'. The moulding of Carr’s 
us naturally into a keen 
" without destroying 
it by the restrictions that team 
play demands is left to Brian 
Clough, probably the greatest 
manipulator ever of football- 
ers. Carr had him dimbing out 
of his dug-out on Saturday in 
frustration. Had it not been 
for Carr's insistence on beat- 
ing everyone until the goal-

posts stood in his way, the 
championship leaders would 
°* vc "on a lot more comfort- 
ably than they did. 

As it was. Arsenal took 
enough positive steps to have 
won the game themselves. 
Forest's defeat in their open- 
ing game apart, this was the 
closest anyone hat come to 
beating them this rea son, and 
that with a perfor manc e from 
the opposition that was not as 
tight at the back as Geoige 
Graham, the. Arsenal man- 
ager, would have liked from 

Clough angry 

Brian dough, the Notting- 
ham Forest manager, angrily 
turned on his own su pp orters 
at the City Ground on Sat- 
urday when they obscenely 
cheered as ArsenaTs Nicholas 
was taken off on a s i w fri wr 
(Clive White writes). 

Ckragh said: “1 just can't 
understand why they choose to 
behave like this when thing* 
are going so wefl here just now. 
I have warned them about this 
conduct in the past We just 
don't want these people in the 

the first division's best de- 
fence. But he conceded the 
contributing factor of Forest's 
inspired r unning from mid- 
field which he thought could 
also be good for the game in 

But there were some en- 
couraging signs for Graham, 
notably the impressive first 
full performance of the sturdy, 
quick Pbrry Groves, nephew 
of Vic, the former Arsenal 
wing hall and the authori- 
tative and perceptive display 
of Williams, despite still the 
odd moment of immaturity. 

Against this, however, was the 
loss of the lively Nicholas after 
an hour with a gashed leg 
which could keep him out for 
a fortnight ■ 

One feared the worst for 
Arsenal in the first min ate 
when Birtles and Webb were 
both caught offside. Forest 
were like a pent-up racehorse 
in the starting stalls. In the 
next minute they were off and 
ratting. Davis put Sansom in 
trouble with an undiaracteiisr 
ticafly-awkward ball, and he 
was promptly robbed- by 
Birtles. The ball was moved 
on to Webb then Clough with 
all the speed and fluency of a 
team of pick-pockets, before 
Clough finally squeezed the 
booty past the excellent Lultic 

Bristol hooligans

By Simon O’Hagan 

. As Football Association of- 
ficials meet at Odsal Stadium, 
Bradford, today to lurid their 
inquiry into the trouble that 
occurred there nine days ago 
when Bradford City_ played 
Leeds United, they do so muter

break of hooliganism over the 

Having completed their in- 
quiry at Bradford, the FA look 
likely to turn their attention to 
Bristol CHy and their mana g er 
Terry Cooper. They were at the 
centre of some chaotic scenes at 
the end of the third division 
match at Bo nr neiaoMtfa on Sat- 
urday when Moyes, the. City 
defender, was sent off after 
Bournemouth had been 
awarded an 89th minute penalty 
to rive them a 2-0 win. 

City supporters invaded the 
pitch and Cooper ran on to 
remonstrate with the referee, 
who appeared to halt the match. 
Cooper said tater “I went on to 
the pitch to try to gel the referee 
to 'Stop the game because I 
thought there was going to be a

jtmd thinking the match had 
abandoned, although it 
transpired that the re feree. Mr 
Dennis Hedges, had blown for

Rival supporters also dashed 
at Norwich City at the end of the 
match against Newcastle 
United, an incident which rather 
soured the home side’s 2-0 
victory which puts them second 
in the first division. Drinkefl

One of the day's best matches

Ely David Powell 

Tottenham Hotspur. 

Everton were only half rec- 
ognizable from the team 
which was familiar for its 
consistency last 

seasotiHoward Kendall's nor- 
mally sound defence, with 
Ratdiffe in particular at fault 
for the second, gifted Totten- 
ham a couple of goals. Gough 
and Mabbutt, on the other 
hand, were exemplary, look- 
ing more like Evcrton’s de- 
fence than Everton. 

Unyielding they were and if 
they continue to perform as 
they did on Saturday they win 
do much to restore the good 
name of back play at White 
Hart Lane. In attack. Everton 
troubled Clemence only once 
while Clive Allen again dem- 
onstrated that he is the nearest 
thing we have seen this season 
to- the exiled Evertanian, 

“We just needed a tut of 
something on the end of it,” 
Kendall said ruefully, no 
doubt regretting Lineker’s de- 
parture and envying the drills 

of Allen. With a neatly taken 
header and a venomous 20 
yard drive, Allen took his 
goals tally to nine out of the 10 
his dub have scored in the 
first division this season, 
building on the promise be 
showed at the end of last 
season when he found the 
target five times in the final 
three games. 

When Allen arrived at Tot- 
tenham two seasons ago as a 
23 year-old, he bad already 
twice been sold for over £1 
milli on and had made three 
England appearances. A com- 
bination of injuries and re- 
serve team football limited 
him to 32 League games out of 
a possible 84 before this 
season, but under David 
Pleat, Tottenham’s new man- 
ager, be may advance his 
international claims once 
more; “What can I say? He's 
amazing,” Heat enthused. 

When Allen stole from the 
shadows after 26 minutes to 
head in from Paul Allen's 
-cross, it was a good omen for 
Tottenham. The dub had not 
lost a League match in which 
be had scored. And when 
Clemence boomed a clearance 
kick way into the Everton half 

on 68 minutes. Alien was 
assured of an extension to his 
sequence as be seized on 
Ratdiffe's misjudgement of 
the flight of the ball to power a 
drive past Minims. Now Tot- 
tenham have won II and 
drawn two of the 13 games in 
which Allen has scored. 

As the last unbeaten first 
division record went down, 
so, too. did Tottenham's run 
of three consecutive League 
home defeats by the 
Merseysiders. According to 
Roberts, who was making his 
200th League appearance for 
the club, the greatest differ- 
ence Heat has made to Tot- 
tenham is that “he has put 
belief back into the team”. 
And none more so than Allen.

Biily McNeill's first League 
match in charge of Aston Villa 
was notable not merely because 

the dub at the bottom of the 
table thoroughly tested the 
champions. Two penalties, five 
bookings and six goals brought 
almost 3n excess of excitement. 

From the fourth minute this 
was a game which was always 
trying, and pretty well suc- 
ceeded. in getting a quart into a 
pint pot. Hodge set the tempo, 
gliding forward to volley in 
Dorigo's cross so neatly and 
carefully he might have been 
putting away his best shin. The 
unsettled England international 
stood out for his prodigious 
industry even though all the 
outfield players — bar the lan- 
guid S la inrod — were work- 

In the case of an unusually 
awkward and unbalanced Liver- 
pool defence, however, the over- 
dose of adrenalin was nearly 
fatal and it was left to Wark's 
coolness to revive the home 
side. In the 26th minute he 
drove precisely inside a post, 
Then, Thompson having re- 
gained the lead for Villa when 
Grobbelaar chose to demon- 
strate that he is approaching 
mastery at the an of dropping 
hopeful punts into the penalty 
area. Wark equalized again from 
the penalty spot just before the 

Elliott, who had marked Rush 
with great effectiveness until 
that point, was adjudged to have 

handkd the ball as he lunged in 
front of the Liverpool forward. 
But if that decision seemed 
harsh it was balanced by the 
award of a penalty to Villa 12 
minutes into the second half. 

This time. Hansen was 
considered to have offended as 
he and Hodge became so en- 
twined they could have been 
performing some kind of 
expression! Stic ballet. Evans 
banged the ball to the right of 
the goal and Grobbelaar, poor 
chap, expertly dived the other 

Not many teams in recent 
years have taken the lead three 
times in a match at AnfieJd, but 
Liverpool were not overcome by 
the novelty. Ten minutes from 
the end, Beglin broke down the 
left. Rush weaved inside and 
rolled the ball invitingly side- 
ways. McMahon, a former Villa 
player, ran forward eagerly and 
let fly from 20 yards with one of 
those shots that dreams are 
made oC it went right in the top 

Afterwards, the creases in 
McNeill's face all seemed to 
have turned into smiles. But 
Kenny Dalglish, the Liverpool 
player-manager, was even more 
morose than usual, muttering 
about “defensive mistakes. 
Perhaps, after the extraordinary 
midweek victory over Fulham, 
he had been expecting to win 10- 
0 again.

Luton Town 1 

Manchester City 0 

If the League dubs vote next 
Monday to keep Luton Town 
out of the Uttlewoods Cup, then 
the competition will be poorer 
for their absence. On Saturday, 
Luton beat Manchester City as 
convincingly as their chairman, 
David Evans, won his televised 
argument with his City counter- 
part, Peter Swales, about the 
merits of banning away 

and his directors 
stayed away from Kenilworth 
Road in protest at Luton's home 
Txtembers-only policy, yet if they 
had been present, they would 
surely have protested at City’s 

City are a team without goals 
and, on Saturday's evidence, 
.almost without hope: Only 
Luton's wasteful finishing ana 
goalkeeping of the highest qual- 
ity by Suckling saved them from 

CHy have managed only five 
goals this season and against 
Luton, the No 9, Christie, was so 
ineffective that he was replaced 
near the end by White, one of 
Gty’s many teenagers. 

Goals are also a problem for 
Luton. Brian Stein, who scored 
the winner, is their only marks- 
man who is scoring regularly, 
and he starts a two- match 
suspension today. However, 
Stem's absence could be offset 
by the return of Harford after 

Suckling’s best saves were 
from a Hill shot and a Brian 

Stein header and it was not until 
the 82nd minute that the latter 
brought some sanity to the 
scoreline when he converted 
Hill's unselfish pass.

Peyton on call 

Bournemouth's Third Di-

ham on October 14 has been 
postponed because Gerry 
Peyton, the goalkeeper, could be 
on call for Ireland's inter- 
national against Scotland. 

throwing a punch at Bond, who 
had been tugging his shirt, but 
then took a painful knock from 
Shilton when the England goal- 
keeper advanced to stop a 
seemingly certain goal, and that 
irritated Bassett. “I learned 
nothing about football today but 
what 1 did learn was that if 
you've got someone who plays 
in goal for England be can get 
away with murder.'' 

The goal which Wimbledon at 
that stage were trying so des- 
perately to cancel out deserved 
to win any match, but the irony 
was that bad Cockerilfs stupen- 
dous 72nd minute shot been the 
winner, Southampton would 
have been undeserving winners. 

For, as Bassett acknowledged 
m the way only he can when it 
was suggested that Wimbledon 
deserved their point: “1 thought 
we-, stuffed them, it was like the 
Alamo and Davey Crockett.” 
Wimbledon, in spite of their late 
point, must have rued those 
three times in the Cist half when 
Cork let the reputation of 
Shilton inhibit him from 
producing shots of real 

Not so Fashanu. His first goal 
came after he had run onto a 
long ball from Morris, two 
minutes after Wimerbum had 
knocked the ball into his own 
net in trying to keep Clarice's 
cross away from Lawrence. The 
equalizer came late into stop- 
page lime when Fashanu. hav- 
ing failed ago n izi n gly with one 
magnificent twisting header that 
came back off a post, swivelled - 
to shorn in from the edge of the 
area. It was the very least 
Wimbledon deserved.

Fashanu got Off scot-free for Referee: BT Stevens. 

With one of the most incon- 
gruous of sporting fixtures 
looming large, Wimbledon 
against Liverpool in the first 
division at Plough Lane next 
Saturday, the lads from SWI9 
must have felt doubly grateful 
that they do not have to 
approach it with their self 
doubts magnified by three 
successive league defeats. 

Just when, with seconds left 
on Saturday, it looked as if the 
Wimbledon bubble had well and 
truly burst, John Fashanu came 
up with the goaL his second of 
the match, to give them the 
point they more than deserved. 
And what's more, for once a 
Wimbledon game was as good 
as the post-match press con- 
ference from the m anager Dave 
Bassett, if not, of course, quite as 

But the match did have its 
share of hilarious moments, 
most of them involving 
Fashanu, who on the serious 
side, produced the goods just in 
time to surely earn himself a 
reprieve after going seven games 
with only one goaL A man, 
whose eloquence off the pitch 
belies his macho qualities on it, 
Fashanu certainly provides 
entertainment value whether 
intentional or not. There was 
the time be back-headed a 
throw-in onto the roof of the 
stand; and the other when he 
stood eyebalMo-eyeball on the 
touchline as Dennis, another 
belligerent character, prepared 
to take a throw for Southamp- 
ton. Like the good welterweight 
he is, Dennis sensibly resisted 
the temptation of taking on the 
proven heavyweight,

Rival circuit on the way 

By Richard Eaton 

Walker International's pro- 
fessional badminton group is 
going u> have to be taken 
seriously. Following the success 
of the Dan-Air international 
Challenge in Belfast on Friday 
night, three more of its events 
have been announced. The Bel- 
fast event, the first indepen- 
dently-organized tournament, 
saw Europe beat England 3-2. 
with the worid No 1, .Morten 

Frosi of Denmark, saving two 

match points against Common- 
wealth champion Steve 

Dan-Air was pleased enough 
with the outcome to say it will 
sponsor other events, probably 
with a similar format in Dublin 

and Cork in March. Another, 
bigger series of events is almost 
certain to take place in India in 

All this, means that a money- 
spinning circuit that could rival 
the International Badminton 
Federation's world Grand Prix 
looks increasingly likely. 

Ciro Ctmgoio, once the 
marketing manager of the IBF 
and now the director of bad- 
minton at Walker International, 
has said that Sweden's former 
all-England doubles champions 
Thomas Kihlstrom and Stefan 
Karlsson have expressed an 
interest, and that considerable 
Japanese involvement is pos- 



Briggs is a 

By Nicolas Soames 

After winning the British 
Open ban lam weight title at 
Crystal Palace on Saturday, 
Karen Briggs, the world cham- 
pion. disclosed that she had 
fought in the final in defiance of 
advice from the British team 
manager and team doctor who 
had told her to pull out. 

Her first opponent of the day. 
an awkward Polish fighter, had 
kicked her sharply an her knee, 
and by the end of the fight, 
which she won fairly comfort- 
ably, her knee was beginning to 


The knee was strapped up and 
in what seemed like an action 
replay of the European 
championships in the same ball 
rix months ago when she won 
with an injured foot, she man- 
aged to dismiss all opposition 
despite a noticeable hobble. 

But she wasn’t in her most 
devastating form - until the 
final. Against Friedrich, of West 
Germany, Briggs showed 
here lass, going through her rep- 
ertoire of ihrows as if she didn't 
need to be fully fit 

In the final sequence she 
attacked with lai-otoshi and 
flashed around the back for a 
classic te gunima pick-up which 
deposited the German on the 
ground. Briggs immediately 
pounced and with a smooth 
manoeuvre, turned the bemused 
visitor over m to a crushing 
bold. Joanne Spinks, 
though just 17, did some 
remarkable work to win the 
heavyweight title, overcoming 
the mature challenge of Karin 
Kutz,of West Germany, the 
European bronze medal winner 
in the final

Easy road 
for the 
new county 

By John Hennessy 

te natural pro- 
•Hertfordshire became 
utglisn county golf champions 
yesterday They . had finished 
fourth in 1984 and second to 
Uevon in a cliff-hanging finish 
last year Yesterday they came 
up trumps to beat Staffordshire 
6 ^-2»/ 2 on the John O'Gaum 
course after having established a 
formidable lead of two points 
the day before over Devon and 
Lancashire, and with a plentiful 
supply of individual points from 
two big wins m the event ofa lie. 

The format used by the 
English Golf Union, wherebv 
the two winners on the first day 
among the four qualifiers, 
Hertfordshire and Lancashire, 
were pitted against each other 
on the second, was called seri- 
ously into question as the last 
day drifted towards an in- 
evitable ami-dimax. 

Hertfordshire had virtualy 
wrapped it all up by lunchtime. 
They had won the foursomes 2- 
I over Staffordshire, which left 
them needing only one point 
from the six singles, and even 
that presupposed that Devon 
would win all their singles 
against Lancashire. 

With the Devon v Lancashire 
match teeing-off first, it soon 
became apparent that Hertford- 
shire would not need even that 
one point in the afternoon. 
Bards lev went six up at the tenth 
for Lancashire against 
Newcombc. and won the match 
three boles later. It was barely 
3. IS on a glorious afternoon, 
and not one Hertfordshire 
player had reached the first 
recording station at the seventh. 
The golf that mattered yesterday 
was played in the morning. With 
the Devon v Yorkshire four- 
somes shared, Hertfordshire 
could have won the title without 
striking a ball in the afternoon. 

The defeat of Ambridge and 
Robinson of Hertfordshire, 
then, at least kept the champion- 
ship flickeringly alive after 
lunch. The Staffordshire pair 
had the upper hand all the way 
and it was Chris Poxon who 
struck the two final blows. 

He laid a brilliantly-con- 
trolled chip dead from behind 
the 15th green and then re- 
sponded to the left-handed 
Hassall's fine tee-shot to the 
1 53-yard 1 6th with a superb pun 
from 20 feel. But Clapp and 
Clark roared away from Grif- 
fiths and Stephen Wild to win 
five successive holes from the 
eighth to go six-up. In the last 
match. Cherry and Latham won 
the 14th and 1 5th in par figures.

White Crusader is the 
latest thoroughbred 
from Howlett’s stable 

The choice of While Cru- 
sader as the boat the Royal 
Thames Yacht Club syndicate 
intend to challenge for the 
America's Cup. announced at 
the weekend, is a tribute to the 
work of designer Ian Howlett, 
who has made a vocation out 
of 1 2-metre yacht design in the 
1 5 years since graduating from 
Southampton University with 
an honours degree in Ships 

It was during his time at 
Southampton that Howlett, 
aged 37, first met the late John 
Livingston, a sheep former 
with gold mining interests in 
Australia, whose life's am- 
bition was to head an 
America's Cup challenge from 
the 'old country'. That wish 
never materialised, but the 
Australian sponsored the then 
20-year-old student during his 
studies and later commis- 
sioned two 12-metre designs, 
in 1973 and in 1977. Sadly, 
□either came to fruition, only 
the halfscale model Kurrewa 
VL which was built as a test- 
bench for HowJeti’s ideas. 

Uonhean. which carried 
the hopes of Tony Boyden's 
British Industry 1500- syn- 
dicate, was Howlett’s first 12- 
metre design to be built, but 
though she proved excep- 
tionally fast in a straight line, 
winning the 1979 World Cup 
championship at Brighton, the 
boat, which was fitted with a 
radical bendy rig was slow to 
manoeuvre and was knocked 
out of the 1980 Cup trials by 
Baron Bich's France I1L Vic- 
tory '83, the boat built for the 
Peter de Savary-led challenge 

By Barry PicldhaU 

three years later, was much 
more successful, losing only in 
the final selection trials to the 
eventual Cup winner, Austra- 
lia II. 

Howlcn's design was later 
vindicated by its winning 
performance in the 12-metre 
World championship in Sar- 

Pbil Crebbin, technical 
director of Britain's White 
Horse Challenge America's 
Cup syndicate, gave the team's 
morale a boost when be fin- 
ished second in the Australia 
Cup match-racing series in 
Perth at the weekend (John 
Roberson writes). An error of 
judgment cost him victory 
when be went over the starting 
line by 25 centimetres in a vital 
match against the eventual 
winner, Odin BeasheL 

Beasbel is the skipper of one 
of Alan Bond's potential 
Americas Cup defenders, and 
he won the series with a dean 
sweep of nine wins. Crebbin 
sewed eight wins, and other 
than his race against BeasheL 
sailed an #utstsMtSing series 
leading at every mark in every 
raceJUis crew were all picked 
from those who win sail the 
12-metre White Crusader in 
the challenger e limina tion se- 
ries which starts next week. 

dinia last year and White 
Crusader, which incorporates 
a wing keel similar in concept 
to Australia ITs, is an evolu- 
tionary development of the de 
Savary boat. - 

During initial trials off Fre- 

mantle earlier this year. White 
Crusader proved slower up- 
wind but more 
manoeuvrable than the 
syndicate's radically-designed 
second boat, developed by 
model boat designer David 
Hollom in conjunction with 
Stephen Wallace and scientist 
Sir Herbert Pearcey: However, 
since changes were made to 
the keels of both boats last 
month, the Howlett design 
became the automatic choice 
after equalling Crusader ITs 
upwind performance, and re- 
tained her better tinning 
characteristics during a final 
week of trials shortened to 
three days by a lack of wind. 

The recent changes to keel 
and rudder, together with the 
movement aft of ballast, and 
her rig failed to lessen the 
Hollom-designed boat's inher- 
ent lee-helm characteristics, 
which made her difficult to 
steer, particularly in a seaway. 
During those modifications. 
Crusader ITs mast was 
brought back a small amount, 
but according sources in Fre- 
mantle, the distance should 
have been double. The boat 
would also have benefitted 
from having a more powerful 

The model-maker from 
Bradford, however, is being 
retained by the British syn- 
dicate and may yet see his 
radical design developed to its 
fullest potential in time for the 
next year’s 12-metre World 
championship in Sardinia. 

TOMORROW: The Times starts a three-part examination of 
the background to the greatest event in yachting. 


Canada needs to 
harness its talent 

Ireland Under-25 .. 
Canadian XV 



Two matches and two defeats 
are the harsh statistics of the 
Canadian tourists so for on their 

four match tour of Ireland. They 
have finished on the wrong end 
of 32-13 and 26-20 scorelines 
against Ulster and an Ireland 
Under-25 team respectively. 
But their refreshing approach to 
game and willingness, to run 
tall even out ofdefence has 
won them many friends. 

The experience gleaned from 
their recent tour of France and 
on this current tour vrill be 
immeasurable, and once they 
start to harness the individual 
talents, they possess, into a 
cohesive and more disciplined 
strike force the men that wear

jerseys will surely do C anad a

Hanley and Gill 
top of the bill 

Those inveterate crowd-pleas- 
crs. Ellery Hanley and Hender- 
son Gill, of Wigan, stole the 
show before a 12^500 crowd at 
Central Park yesterday. Against 
Hufl, who defended well ai first, 
but were later tom apart, Hanley 
scored four tries and Gill locked 
seven goals. 

The points machine St Hel- 
ens went over the 200 mark in 
only five games by beating Hall 
Kingston Rovers 36-4 on 
Humberside. Rovers, badly hit 
by iiyiojes and an almost 
inexplicable loss ofform, fought 
well in the first half but were 
overrun in the second. HaUiwefl 
scored two early -tries for the 
Saints, and the record-breaking 
young centre Paul Loughlin 
added to his considerable tally 
this season by kicking six. goals 
and scoring a try. 

Casdefbrd also maintained 
their 100 per cent record , but 
they bad a much tougher time of 
it m the local derby against 
Featheratone Rovers. The- vis- 
itors, who knocked Hull KR out 
of the Yorkshire Cup on Friday, 
put up a terrific battle and the 
scorehne. of 16-7 to Castleford 
hardly does them justice. 

Widncs continued their re- 
cent run of success, and made 
the depression which is .cur- 
rently over Leeds a litlie deeper 
with a convincing 35-10 win. 
Stockley was in outstanding

Warrington are another side 
from west of the Pennines who 
are rapidly coining good, and 
they pulled off one .of the 
toughest tasks of the day in 
beating Halifax 16-13 at Thrum 
HalL The pme was marred by 
the sending off of Boyd 
(Warrington) and Dickinson 
(Halifax), and Warringtog lad 
to tang.on grimly -at the end as 
their lead was^ chipped away by 
two late tries from Halifax's 
Australian full back Eadte; who 
foiled -to kick the vital goals. 

One of the bravest perfor- 
mances of the .day came from 
Wakefield .Trinity, who were 
reduced to II men with the 
sending off of Evans and Con- 
way. They fought so spiritedly 
that they levelled the scores 22- 
22 against Bradford Northern 
before numerical disadvantage 
worked against Trinity, and they 
conceded two late tries, . 

Leigh romped away from 
Oldham, whming 40-12, and at 
the bottom of toe table Barrow 
kept Salford pointless with a 24- 
12 victory. 

At the Notts County, ground 
Mansfield M ar ks man won a 
rare victory over hapless Ful- 
ham 32-18. The best second 
division win was by Runcorn

S Korea stuns foes 

Seoul (Reuter) — Indonesia 
foiled at badminton and South 
Korea stunned Malaysia at 
hockey yesterday, a day when 
much of the Asian Games 
action came in the form of 
political threats and sporting 

South Korea beat Malaysia 4- 
and won a berth in the men’s 
final today (when they play 
Pakistan) for the first lime in 
Asian Gaines history. 

In badmintion. South Korea 
Indonesia 3-2 in the semi- 
of the men's team com- 
petition, the first time Indonesia 
have foiled to qualify for an 
Asian Games final in the team 
event. The Indonesian team 
manager lodged a protest with 
the Gomes organisers, claiming 
the defeat was caused by dis- 
puted line calls.

tied the world mark of 3 38 at 60 
metres. The South Korean 
women's team's total for one 
round at each distance — 70, 60, 
SO and 30m — also beat the 
world mark of 3,925 by 10 

With seven days left in the 1 6- 
day Asiad, China have 58 gold, 
47 silver and 26 bronze medals 
compared to Japan's 38 gold, 40 
silver and 38 bronze. 

Away from the sports arenas 
an ugly, and seemingly in- 
soluble, row is brewing between 
the organisers and Indian and 
Pakistani officials. The Paki- 
stanis threatened to boycott the 
remainder of the Games if a 
map showing the disputed terri- 
tory of Jammu and Kashmir as 
belonging to India is published 
by the organisers. Last week, the 
Indians said they would boycott 
the closing ceremony unless the 
official Games map showed 
Kashmir as pan of its territory. 1 


Taylor continues to win 

By Jenny MacArtour 

Anne-Marie Taylor under- 
lined the, strength of her new 
partnership with Mrs Shirley 
Mailer’s Botebec Miler when 
she won her advanced section 
at The Lngersoll 
leers' Bounon Horse Trials 
in Warwickshire. 

Miss Taylor, who was fifth in 
the world championships in 
May on her top horse Justin 

Thyme, finished just one point 

ahead of Diana Claphant on 
Jimney Cricket — the horse Miss 
Taylor used to ride. Miss 
Clapham had a convincing win 

in the other advanced section on 

her great partner Windjammer, 
on whom she completed the 
fastest time across country. 

Bolebec Miler, a nine year-old 
gelding by Hardiran. was orig- 
inally bought for his owner to 
hunt, but in Miss Taylor's 

capable his career 

been re-routed. He competes in 

his first advanced three-day- 

event at Chatswortfa this week. 

Miss Taylor’s successful week- 

end also included a win in her 
novice section on Saturday on 
Mr and Mrs Charles Stratton’s 

Hey don Lad. 

good performances at 
yesterday's “garden party” 
horse trials— the course takes in 
part of the rose garden at

can who finished second and 
third respectively in their ad-

Levisse stays 
ahead of Ford 

Versailles (A F) — Pierre 
Levisse, of fiance, won the 
eleventh Paris to Versailles 
road race on yesterday^ finish- 
ing first in a field of about 
20,000 contestants over the 
17.7 kilometre (il-mile) 

Levisse’s winning time of. 
48min 50sec was comfortably 
ahead of Bernie Ford, of 
Erteland, who came second in 
49:05, followed by lenan En- 
nis, of Wales, in 49:07. 

Levisse moved into the lead 
during a long uphill stretch 
about three-fourths of the way 

through the race, and stayed in 

front all the way to the finish 
along the Avenue de Paris in 

Martine Fays, of France, 
placed first among the women 
with a time of 57:50, with 
Francoise Bonnet and Annie 
Juttel — both of France — 
finishing second and third.

An extra Test march may be 
added to the Australian tour of

erary even if play began in the 
present match today or

moment, though, that a start will 

be made al all Rain again fell 
overnight and when the inad- 
equate covering tarpaulins were 
removed, the pitch once more 
was soaked where leakages had 
occurred-The morning, how- 
ever, was dry and the players 
practised on the outfield. The 
forecast for the next 48 hours 
remains unsettled. 

This is only the third time in 
cricket history that . the first 
three days of a Test match has 
been washed out and no pre- 
vious Test in India has ever lost 
more than two days bad 
weather. Should the match be 
abandoned without a ball being 
bowled. Delhi would join Man- 
chester in 1890 and 1938 and 
Melbourne (1970-71), where 
this has happened. 

Most people's frustration has 
now reached the stage where 
they hope this match does not 
start. FCw of the players are 
anxious to go through the 
motions for trine hours or so. If 
not a .single ball is bowled, the 
Delhi and Districts Cricket 
Association stand to collect 
£140,000 insurance, provided 
they are not (teemed to “have 
been negligent- 

Tbe money, hopeful] y, anil be 
used to improve the ground’s 
covers and drying equipment. It 
would also help with the ex- 

penses of the extra Test match, 
which, if it is agreed, would be 
staged either in Delhi or 
Ahmadabad. Preliminary talks 
have started between Indian 
officials and Alan Crompton, 
the Australian manager, and a 
decision is likely tomorrow 

Indian cricket associations 
are more flexible about changing 
tour itineraries than thewe trr 

most other countries would be. 
Dates and venues can be re- 
arranged rapidly, as David 
Gower’s team found out two 
years ago. when England arrived 
the day after Mrs GandKi's. 
assassination. England moved 
on to Sri Lanka and when they 
returned to India they under- 
took a rejigged programme. 

The Australians have insisted 
that there should be two dear 
days between two Test matches. 
To fit in an extra Test, the plan 
is to scrap a three-day match 
arranged at Vadodara, formerly 
known as Baroda. from October 
10-12, when the Australians are 
due to meet Delhi. tiw'Raqn 
Trophy champions. The thiC. 
and last Test at present schedr 
uled to begin in Bombayon 
October 15, will also be pul back 
24 hours. 

Any longer extension to the 
lour is not feasible as .the 
Australians are due to play for 
their stake in Sheffield Shield 
matches within two days of 
reaching home. The revis«l 
itinerary could read: October 2z

Hickox heads for 
final and record 

Forthe first time in three days 
of scintillating competition, the 

seedings held up at the Blue 
Stratos British Under-23 Gosed 
Championship at Lambs Qub, 
London, yesterday. 

Jamie Hickox, the defending 
champion, survived a furious 
semi-final onslaught from Del 
Harris of Essex, and third 
seeded Robert Owen rather 
easily overcame Paul Gregory of 

Gregory, at 18. is already a 
renowned fighter who has made 
his reputation man English 
under- 19 squad which is 
increasingly successful against 
the senior players. On Saturday, 
he single-handedly destroyed a 
promising Celtic challenge- by 
dismissing first Mark Madean 
of Scotland 8-10, 9-5, 1-9, 9-4. 9- 
1 in the afternoon, and then in- 
the evening removed the second 
seed, Adrian Davies ofWales. 2- 
9. 2-9, 9-6. ^4, ?-2. 

If Gregori' a foe under-] 9 
scrapper, then. Del Harris, only 
17 but already twice winner of 
the under- 1 9 Open title, must be 
counted as the main force of the 

By Gdm McQmftan 

age group. Certainly the Essex 
youngster opened against the 
now vastly experienced top seed 
as though it were he who carried 
the confidence of superiorityi v ; 

He won the first game 9-1 lif- 
12 minutes, slotting nine perfect 
backhand drops into the nick 
from the champion's fevourite 
forehand boast shot. Jamie 
Hickox. however, is by now a 
wily 22-year-old. He carefully 
drew Harris into a series of 
back-hand errors, particularly 
'from the tack court, to finish 1- 
9. 9-4, 10-8. 9-6 in 68-minuies. 

Robert Owen needed S3 min- 
utes to tidy away Gregory 9-6, 9- 
4, 9-6 with an elegant display, 
decorated especially by pre- 
dsiotvdrops from all comersnf 
a difficult hot court 
For a 21-year-old with an 
astonishing record of dissen- 
sion, disciplinary action and 
even playing bans, Owen lias 
reached today's final in gen- 
erous and forgiving humour. It 
is a mood he may need to stiffeg 
in order to prevent his Anglo- 
Ca n adia n opponent from win - r 
ning foe Blue Stratos title for a 
record fourth time 


McEnroe causes upset 

Saa Francisco (Reuter) — 
John McEnroe, seeded fonrth, 

upset tfc top seed and defend- 
ing champion Stefan Edberg, 
®f Sweden, 7-6, 6-2 in Sat- 
urday night's senti-final of the 
San Frandso grand prix 

In the other semi-final, 
Jimmy Connors, the No 2 
seed, beat Anders Janyd, of 
Sweden, 6-7, 6-1, 2-0 when the 
third seed retired with a 
recurrence of a knee problem. 

Edberg had never beaten 
McEnroe and had lost to him 
last week in the final of a Los 
Angeles tournament The first 

set was closely contested and. 
neither player could make' 
much impression mi his 
opponent's serve. McEnroe 
eventually took it with a 
brilliantly angjed, forehand 
cross-court, winner.

Wedding day: David ThreJ&H, 
Zoe Wanamaken ITV, 930pm 

• It was 
disappointing last Monday night 
to note that episode two of 
John Mortimers socially aware 
drama serial PARADISE 
POSTPONED had Mt a bumpy 
patch and that many 
Characters, brttontiy defined in 
episode one with many a 
quintsssentiai Mortimer touch, 
were being manoeuvred into 
situations bat ware no better 
than those to be found in your 
average sit-corn. I was, in a 
word, debating with myself 
whether to give up watching 
Mortimers most recent 
fiction, or give it one more 
chance. I plumped for the 

episode three (ITV. 9.00pm}, the 
wahida has got back on to a 
smooth road, and thusAtanday 
night's ITV viewing has 
regained its patina. One of the 


serial's delights has been the 
careful emergence of the 
ambitious Leslie Trtmuss 
from his humbte chrysalis. The 
is the dever way that Mortimer 
brings about the 
inconceivable imton of Tttmuss 
and the well-bred Chartotte 
by gettinaher to meet hfti 
halfway. These roles are 
beautindy played by David 
ThretfaB and Zoe 
Wanamaker. One puzzle in 
episode one is solved tonight 
how Tttmuss got his cut-glass 
accent Another puzzle 
remains: why the exquisite but 
familiar slow movement of 
Elgar's cello concerto was 
picked as opening and 
closing music when Roger 
WSbb% incidental music is so 

■ sensitively attuned to Paradise 
Postponed 's setting, period, 
pfot and everything eae. 

• Freed by Its adapter and 
translator Basil Ashmore from an 
undeservedly romantic title 
(The Strong are Lonety). and no 
longer spiritualty crippled by 
an ending that undermined the 
author's original intention, the 
definitive version erf Fritz 
Hochwalder's play THE TOLY 
EXPERIMENT (Radio 4, 11 5pm) 
makes the kind of radio 
occasion that grabs you by the 
lapels and denes you to try to 
get away. It tells of the Jesuits' 
abortive attempt to embrace 
Latin American Indians In an 18th 
century Christian state, 
replacing slavery by democracy. 
If you demand a label for the 
play, I can offer give you one: 
passionate, pofiticai theology.

Honeyghan’s win 
matches the 
feats of Turpin 


By Sriknmar Sea, Boxing Correspondent 

Lloyd Honeyghan. of 
Bermondsey, achieved ihe 
most memorable victory in 
British boxing since Randolph 
Turpin took the middleweight 
title from Sugar Ray Robinson 
35 years ago, when he stopped 
Donald Curry, of the United 
States, the undisputed world 
welterweight champion, in six 
rounds at Atlantic City on 
Saturday. Like Robinson, 
Curry was rated by boxing 
experts to be pound for 
pound, the best boxer in the 
world; even greater than Mar- 
vin Hagler, the world middle* 
weight champion. 

Nobody, except Honeyghan 
himself and his trainer, Bobby 
Neill, gave the London fighter 
a chance against such a com- 
plete boxer/fighter as Curry. 
Americans thought it would 
be more fun burning money 
than betting on the Briton. 
Those who had seen Cuny's 
four-round destruction of 
Colin Jones, the tough Welsh- 
man, feared for Honeyghan’s 

injury suffered in the sixth was round the ring befbr

But Honeyghan. aged 26. who 
had said the day before the 
bout, “all 1 want to do is 
punch his face in and take his 
title” went into the ring at 
Caesar's Palace, looked the 
fearsome “Cobra" in the eye 
and then, with complete cool- 
ness. proceeded to dominate 
the fight for the six rounds

take me seriously?' 

While all his formative 
years were spent with Terry 
Lawlelss, most of the credit for 
his sensational victory belongs 
to Neill, his trainer. Even 
when Honeyghan was prepar- 
ing for his final eliminator, 
against Horace Shuffoid, Neill 
said he beleived Honeyghan

Manchester United.. — 0 
Chelsea ■ 

The darkness surrounding 
Manchester United deepens 
still further. Locked securely 
in the basement of the first 
division, they lost at home for 
the third time this season and 
are now, after a mere eight 
fixtures, already 15 points 
behind the leaders — realistic 
hopes of the League 
Championship have all but 
been buried, even before the 
dawn of October. 

Those who witnessed 
Chelsea's victory on television 
yesterday afternoon will 
appreciate that United are 
flying on the wings of outra- 
geous misfortune. As well as 
hitting the bar, they had two 
penalties saved in successive 
minutes by a goalkeeper who 
once happened to play under 
Ron Atkinson at West 
Bromwich Albion. 

Atkinson, utterly bemused 
by the shortage of luck that is 
currently enveloping his club, 
refused to accept criticism of

hour, though Godden daima) a-

was stretching for possession. -- 

Godden put into pracths 
his theory about the penalty, 
taking tactics of Olsen, who 
had been brought on for 
Moses less than a minute 
before. “He runs up slowfy- 
and waits for the goalkeeperto

Man in a million Norman 
leads Australian victory 

Greg Norman must be 
wondering what be can offer 
for an encore. He became the 
first golfer in the history of the 
game to win one million 
dollars in prize money in a 
single year when Australia 
retained the Dunhill Cup at St 
Andrews yesterday. 

“I like that,” said Norman. 
“It’s □ ice to have seven figures 
behind my name. I guess the 
tax man likes it too!” 

Australia, with Rodger Da- 
vis and David Graham also 
winning their games on the 
wind-blown Old Course, 
shared the $300,000 (about 
£21 1,000) first prize following 
a convincing 3-0 win against 
Japan in the final 
Davis led Australia in the 
No.! game throughout the 
tournament, and he continued 
to reduce the pressure on 
Graham and Norman by 
maintaining his 100 per cent 
record, overcoming Jet Ozaki 
by 76 to 81. 

Graham, in spile of taking 
81, scampered through by one

year. Even Severiano 
Ballesteros, with five Euro- 
pean titles this season and 
only £207.502 to show for his 
endeavours, must be kicking 
his heels in frustration. 

Norman insisted: “The se- 
cret to Australia winning was 
the fact that we all played wdL 
It was a team performance. 
Roger, going out first each 
day, was the most important 
man in our team. He proved 
beyond any doubt that it was

first to admit that on current

United's defensive 
vulnerability in the air, ex- 
posed repeatedly by Everton 
the previous week, was im- 
mediately illustrated on the 
ground. When Spademan's

on the edge of their area, 
Dixon was as isolated as a 
victim of a contagious disease.

For the second penalty mo-:

pressure after McNaugfat's 
foul on Olsen, merely guessed. 
History suggests that he is- 
m variably correct. He es- 
timates that he has saved 80 - 
per cent of the penalties he has 
faced and remembers that, at 
West Brom, he was once*, 
beaten only twice in seven 

Godden felt justifiably that 
three of bis other, non-penalty
