Which is re ally quire amazing when you pause to consider just how many features have been packed into this pocket compact. With the emphasis very much on quality. Which as any pro will tell you, is the business'. Originally patented in by Carl Zeiss of Germany, the overall lens construction has repeatedly set B the highest standards. Now you can take close-ups, portraits, groups or landscapes. All of them pin sharp. A system clever enough to let you get so close you can photograph an A4 document.
Should you ever want to take your work home with you, that is. At the push of a button, you can choose exactly the right shooting mode for the occasion. This will greatly reduce the chance of t, r, r, r. But if you want to leave it ail up to the T4 you can. The flash is automatic, not only when the lights are low, bur if the T4 believes the subject is too strongly back -lit.
It's quite capable of compensating for it all by itself. But if you want to override the automatic flash so that it fires regardless of the overall lighting conditions, you can. So you can light your subject and retain background detail. As you might well expect from a camera this advanced it offers all the usual features that more ordinary cameras offer.
Like automatic film advance to Frame 1, automatic wind-on, and automatic rewind. The move was apparently carried out at the behest of Yitzhak Rabin, the prime min- ister, who also holds the defence portfolio. It appeared to block a legal loophole that the ultra-nationalist settler movement had planned to exploit in its attempt to colonise the West Bank and Gaza Strip with Jewish residents. In Berlin, the justice minis- try ruled out the possibility of Herr Honecker being released from jail while there are still charges against him.
Ronald Reagan has been told that he is not a target of the 1 ran-Contra arms-for-hos- tages criminal investigation, effectively confirming his ver- sion of events in the six-year- old scandaL his lawyer said.

He won the Akutagawa Prize, the nation s most prestigious literary award. Washington has made it dear that progress on both issues is only possible if Israel's new administration is serious about halting the expansion of settlements on territory des- tined to become a future Palestinian homeland.
The government's latest ac- tion in the territories was likely to provoke an angry response from the country's right-wing opposition. This was emphasised by its tough stand against Jewish ultra-national- ists in Jerusalem, who are attempting to colonise tradi- tional Arab neighbourhoods. A Pal- estinian from Anabta in the occupied West Bank died after interrogation by Israeli secret police, the fourth such death this year.
Mustaa Mahmoud Barakat, Western Australia, oir Tuesday to protest at moves- by the Canberra government to send him and eight other boat people home. A Chinese man and a woman copied him yesterday, bringing to five the number who have jumped since being refused asylum pur Foreign Staff writes. Four were slightly hurt and a fifth is in hospital for checks, an immigration official said.
Four more Chinese, refusing food and water, remain on the root They went up with the other five early on Monday and are refusing to climb down or talk to Gerry Hand, the immigration minister, until they are given refugee status. The nine people from southern China arrived in a leaky boat off the north Australian coast in May. They have been held at Port Hedtand refugee detention centre since then. They have been refused refugee status but have lodged appeals, which wifi take several weeks. Mr Hand had travelled from Canberra to meet them. Demonstrations and other dramatic action cannot alter that situation.
Mr Hand had some good news yesterday for eight other Chinese at the tightly guarded camp, who arrived with 48 compatriots in another boat in January. The eight were told they had been granted permanent residence: They were flown to Perth to join nine other people from their, boa! An immigration official said the 17 had been allowed to stay after checks on their claims of persecution if sent home.

Baghdad merchants riot to protest against executions Pretoria urges talks after big ANC inarch PRESIDENT Saddam Hus- sein's dam pd own on mer- chants accused of profiteering as he combats deepening eco- nomic problems has backfired with unprecedented rioting in a wealthy Sunni Muslim sub- urb of Baghdad and terrified Iraqi traders into halting ship- ments of essential supplies from Jordan.

Diplomats claim that more than traders have been detained since the dampdown began on July The merchants insist that they are not respon- sible for soaring food prices which they blame on the effects of the United Nations sanctions and the fall in the value of the Iraqi dinar. Relief offidals say two-thirds of the seven million popula- tion are at risk.

Sanctioris-busting traffic through Jordan has also stopped after America put pressure on King Husain and ; Western warships stepped up checks on vessels heading for Jordan's port of Aqaba.
Iraqi opposition leaders say Saddam has made scapegoats of the merchants as he tries to divert discontent over food shortages. These are men between 25 and 35 who have become millionaires selling goods looted from Kuwait during Iraq's seven-month occupa- tion and who are protected by influential friends in the rul- ing Baath party or the security services. WITH the two-day general strike safely over and those people with jobs allowed to return, the African National Congress yesterday turned its attention to the next stage of its week-long campaign of mass action — the disruption of life in the white community.

The regime of Siad Bane, cruel corrupt and tribady divisive; was inexcusably toferated by the West until he fled his palace in January The aftermath has been as murderously chaotic as were Uganda or Liberia at their worst Most aid stopped readiing Somalis after Mr Bane's overthrow, as aH-out civil war ravaged the country.
It has taken the world 18 raopths to draw up a plan, still not put into effect for humanitarian intervention. For months thereafter, the UN stuck by the rules under wfakh it provider emergency relief only at the invitation of a country's government — when Somalia had no recognised government and tte capita?.

Enough food to prevent this tragedy is either in port, or on the way to Somalia, but without armed protection it is looted before it readies those in need. But the secretary-general kept the security council waiting for weeks this summer for die plan the council had requested him to draw up. But that is for too small a forcero have any effect, everiif they are not st31 waiting for thefr transpart to arrive before venturing into the streets. The case for determined humanitarian intervention has- at last been formally acknowledged. The security council has authorised a huge airlift of aid, proposed the dispatch of wellarmed.
General Aideed controls the southern sector of Mogadishu which inch tries the port and airport' The UN is understandably wary of c ommi tting men to a battle for control to which the humanitarian operation could rapidly become secondary. Airlifts alone will not prevent mass starvation and there is no alternative to Mogadishu as a centre for a land-based relief operation. The British Hke nothing so much as a really good grouse. The relatively pleasant summer so far has deprived the nation of its normal pastime, moaning. But there are always tbe. And indeed as the figures show, this year has produced a bumper crop of complaints.
Ever since the wrong sat of snow dogged the minds and the motas of British Rafl, the leitmotifofeverydinnerpartyinan arc from Chiddnirst to Wokingham has been the horrors of commuting. The main interest has been m finding tne worst possible service: For some years now the Fenchurch Street to Southend hne has basked at the bottom of the league.
The English slum begins on the Dover boat train. But misery lines are not quite Dantes in- ferno; the hriD is not eternal At election time nroneymystimousty appeared to allow a face- lift The Qrfttem line, once the Cinderella of London commuting lines, now glides along in siqier turbos.
North Kent win get the new Networked stock. There are oily a few months more to experience foe roller-coaster ride on the Waterioo and City, still using Southern Rahway stock more than half a century dd, before spanking new Under- ground carriages take away the masochistic fan.

People iri East Anglia are still la ughin g at the amateur Inefficiencies of the Southwdd railway. This distinction is as uncertain m theory as it is in practice. There are psychological flaws in many criminals and these can reduce the degree of culpability' of their crimes.
But there can beuo excuse for crime ex doa vdy.. And the noHxmvicted inmates of Ashworth have ho place in a penal institution at aB. The way hospital management is evolving in the rest offoe NHS — trust hospitals trad- ing in an internal NHS market — would make die continuation of a special hospital authority to run just Broadmoor, Ashworth and Ramptoneveu more of an anomaly. But by its place in the criminal justice system, die special hospital authority already acts as an agency foatliaridlesprisQiiers who have been farmed put by the Home Office to the NHS.
The prison service is itself moving towards becoming a seff-regulating agency at aim's length from government. It will even be allowed to tender, as if it was a private orga n isa ti on, for foe Strangeways contract. It should certainly be allowed to bid for AsfaMHth. Btut so should any n fogrmterpRteri body, commercial or otherwise. The Home Office has not found one after decades, hence foe gradual move towards prison privatisation. Tendering may still pfanp a prison or special hospital in foe hands of a government agency, staffed by POA members, rather than a rranmariai company.
This delay is a matter of great concern to many people, not least foe Guildford Four who spent 15 years of their lives in wrongful imprisonment. Recent cases of miscarriages of justice have shaken public con- fidence in some aspects of the criminal justice system in the? The home sec retary referred the case of the Guildford Four to the COurt of Appeal in January and the convictions were quashed by the court on October It js in the public interest that die Lord Chief Justice and the Director of Public Prosecutions should each now make a fall statement as to why there has been such an unparalleled delay in mounting this trial and why foe court, or foe prosecution or the defence, or all three, are now saying the trial cannot take place until April Is the court in difficulty, is the prosecution in difficulty, or is the defence in difficulty, and what is tire nature of any such difficulties?
Archbishop's House, Westminster, SW1. Seychelles election From Sir James R. Mancham Sir, Readers of your dispatch from Seychelles on July 28 may have been left with the impression that the Democratic party had been more or less obliterated by the recent elec- tions to a constitutional commission.
In reality, our Some voters were intimidated by the prospect of intervention by foe dis- proportionately large army, which has avested interest in preserving the present regime. Bur the mostiraportant outcome of these preliminary elections is to put Seychelles on the road back to de- mocracy.
The Democratic party is now recognised as foe official oppo- sition. President Renfe has promised to consult me on aD major issues during the period leading up to a general election in December, and I have undertaken on behalf of the Demo- cratic party to play a responsible role in the restoration of multiparty democracy in Seychelles. Republic of the Seychelles, Wrong on runes From Professor G. The Directory of Tunes and Musical! Themes, can only be obtained from one bookshop. Others certainly stock h, and it may also be obtained direct from foe address below.
Library services From Sir Randolph Quirk. So does my wife, who as a Heidelberg professor is well-placed to assess the British Library by international standards and whose work on medieval and renaissance manuscripts makes her particularly dependent on die skills and helpful- ness of the curatorial staff. We are in consequence astonished that Miss Richardson and Mr Scragg have had experience of the library that is so dramatically dif- Need for reflection on water meters From the Director of the National Consumer Council Sir, According to foe government's consultation paper.
Using Water Wisely report July No doubt foqy do so because they believe, first, that it is fair to pay according to how much water they consume and secondly, because they believe that by reducing thdr water consumption, they will be able to cut their bills sharpty. Would they tie as enthusiastic if they saw their bills rising steadily, in spite of superhuman efforts to save water, or if they saw families on low incomes, with children, reluctant to fiufo theloo in hot weather for fear of pushing up their bills — or families with an incontinent relative paying over the odds because of the need for constant washing of clothes and bedding?
These are hard feds that must be faced before we as a nation make any decision to change over to water metering. The issue is not simpty me of hardship to individual families but of risks to public health. While no one could quarrel with the government's assertion that we must all leam to use water more caiefolly.
It is also pertinent to ask why, according to the consul- tation paper, the government and Ofwat plan only to release a sum- mary of the study of the social impact of metering — why not foil details? We need to be armed with all the necessary facts in Older to have an informed and sensible public debate. This matter is too important for nished decisions to be mule.
Facing moral issues in the Balkans From Mr C. We are used to the assumptions that all wars may escalate, few are won and many drag on expensively and in- effectually. To make war is to us therefore wrong, and force should be used only to police a peaceful settlement Lord Owen reminds us that we are facing, not for tiie first time, offences against foe human race in the form of unashamed use of superior force to exterminate whole peoples. That too can escalate. I suggest that it imposes a moral obligation on the civilised world to intervene with whatever degree of force may be needed to stop the bullying.
It is perhaps a moral dilemma whidi we faced and our leaders did not fully recognise at the end of the Gulf war.
However constructive your leader is in proposing the means of amelio- rating the suffering, it must be recognised that without purposeful Hedgerow carrots From the Director of the Council for the Protection qf Rural England Sir. Gary Crossley letter, July 27 alleges that a private member's bin to protect hedgerows would prevent the efficient running of agricultural businesses and risk turning farmers into criminals. It is precisely this image of farmers being frightened of environmental legislation that risks damaging the industry.
At present the agricultural industry has remark- ably few restrictions imposed on it by local planning authorities. A simple bill to protea hedgerows would not be an attack on farmers. Indeed we hope it will cover im- portant hedgerows wherever they occur. By contrast the new hedgerow incentive scheme grants wil] prob- ably be paid almost entirety in rural areas. In his artide of June I never diseased any — let alone harmful — effects of Christianity on capitalism.
I have discussed the effects of the changing world view — from one that is mechanistic To one that is sodal-systemic — on capitalism and the concept of God the creator, a view of God shared by many re- ligions. I have suggested that the ferent from ours. I am of course painfully aware that staff are hard-pressed with a heavy work schedule, but far from feeling that thdr standards have deteriorated. I find myself constantly admiring their courtesy, good humour, resil- ience. That service indudes protection of the invaluable collections, and it is a sad fact that the British Libraty along with virtually all other librar- ies, as a forthcoming report wffl show suffers from the irresponsible Letters to the editor should cany a daytime telephone number.
They may be sent to a fax number — Fifty years later, can we not hope that one lesson we should have learnt is the immorality of standing by while a people is suffering mass slaughter and exile? The plight of Yugoslav children moves us all. Could we not open our doors to these innocent victims of mutual genocide in the way we admitted German Jewish children under foe Kindertransport scheme just before world war two?
We understand that foe govern- ment cannot allow unlimited im- migration. Those earlier arrivals have become valued citizens, most by now of retirement age. Many made important contributions to national life, quite out of proportion to foe numbers involved. In foe name of humanity I ask foe government to reappraise this issue — children should not be kept in danger. Such a sensible, practicable law would also do foe fanning com- munity a power of good by prevent- ing foe rogues who discredit the- industry from besmirching its name. Complementary sources of rending must be sought free-maikei system, which is central to capitalism, be applied within corporations as well as within our national economies.
I have also written that the concept of god as the universe is more compatible with social-system think- ing than the concept of God as its creator. This explains why many of foe post-world war two generation including the Beaties turned to Eastern religions in which a holistic concept of god prevails. We are always delighted to see people and families enjoying them- selves on Sundays.
As a private member's measure, the government ministers of foe day did not express the government's ap- proval of the measure and it was left to the individual consciences of peep to be expressed in the usual way in the Upper House. Lord Wyatt also conveniently for- gets that all of the safeguards in his Bill for employees and for local residents were voied through on foe insistence of peers with foe same values as the Keep Sunday Special Campaign which seeks to ensure that those likely to be adversely affected by a particular measure are, as far as possible, safeguarded in law.
These concerns were uppermost in our minds as we have reviewed the events leading to and from foe Don- caster experiment with Sunday rac- ing. It is quite dear that legally en- forceable safeguards for foe many thousands of racing employees are an essential prerequisite before any further legislative measures are con- sidered by either House of Par- liament Equally dear is the need to safeguard foe interests of residents who are more and more having their one quiet day of the week interfered with by traffic, noise, pollution and crowds who attend some of foe biggest sporting functions of the year now held on Sundays, not at foe request of the dubs or the organ- isations concerned, but at the direc- tion of foe commensal sponsors which are increasingly taking over the professional game.
I refer specifically to foe Irish Derby, which foe sponsors, Bud- weiser. This is a matter on which the dubs concerned have absolutely no choice or discretion. So much for freedom of choice for the partidpants of these sports. The one positive thing to emerge from the Doncaster experiment in our view was that it is possible to hold a Sunday race meeting without the interference oCbetring shops and without compelling over 40, people to work in betting shops — thus mining foe Sundays of yet another large section of family life.
The key to restoration is the traditional but expensive, craft of hedgdaying. This not only weaves the existing stems into a stockproof barrier, filling any gaps, but en- courages fresh growth at foe bottom to rejuvenate foe entire hedge. A newly-laid hedge has its future as- sured and is visually most attractive. If private-sector companies were to sponsor foe restoration of roadside hedges, in return for a modest temporary sign indicating foty had done so, the hedge itself would act as advertising space.

Covfoe of the report are available, free of conge, at the eb dr eea below. An anay of ampattes, HTtera. He was born in Auckland on Septe mb er 75 He was an accountant by training, and econom- ics were his forte. Vet he became known not so much for his economic policies, controversial though they sometimes were, as for the bellicosity of his personality.
In everything he did Muldoon was a slugger, some- times figuratively, sometimes literal- ly, as when he waded into a street demonstration and punched one of its participants on the jaw. Both at home and abroad he showed absolutely no respect for those of his political peers whom he happened to think were barking up the wrong tree. Not for him the oleaginous, drarmlocutive language which has m these times progressive- ly sapped the vitality — and a necessary core erf truth — from so much of what politicians say.
His behaviour might be boorish and his opinions wrong-headed, uncivilised or downright foolish. But he could never be accused of that species of cynicism which has lowered the profession of politician in the public esteem throughout the world. He hated political chit-chat; as such he was not the delight of political journalists who interviewed him. When questioned about what he thought, he said his piece and that was that Thus, when asked on the air whether he felt any resentment against a political oppo- nent who had attacked him. He owed his survival for so long at the top to the fact that in political astuteness and performance he was head and shoulders above his challengers, whether they came from Labour on the left or from the right wing of his own National Party.
Throughout Iris years as prime minister New Zealand experienced bad times economically. And for a time the voters accepted that He was also able to excite public interest, in spite of the economic gloom, in bold development projects, particularly in the area of energy — such as exploitation of the Maui gas field off the Taranaki coast Robert David Muldoon grew up in difficult circumstances. His father was an invalid, the result of first world war injuries. The family's condition was dose to pover- ty. Muldoon was educated at Mount Albert primary school from where he won a scholarship to Mount Albert Grammar.
He was too young for regular milhaiy service when the second world war began in Europe. Later he saw service in New Caledonia and then in Italy. After the war he won an aimed forces bureaiy to study cost accounting in Britain.

Returning to New Zealand, he joined an Auckland firm of chartered accountants and at the same time became a member of the National Party. After two unsuccessful tilts at parliament, in and , he won the Tamaki seat from Labour in I From to he served as parliamentary under secretary to the minister of finance and in became finance minister himself. Muldoon had served under Marshall as deputy prime minister, and moves were soon set on foot by a group known as the Young Turks within the parliamen- tary group to replace Marshall with Muldoon; they came to fruition in 1 They left wounds in the party which never entirely healed.
As it happened, Kirk died shortly after- wards and M uldocm led the National Party to a decisive victory in He became prime minister and minister of finance at the same time.
The power of his personality apart Muldoon had been promoted by his backers as something of an economic mirade-worker. He himself pro- claimed monetarist principles arid the virtues of restraining intervention by the government but as the economy ran into trouble he moved quite sharply to sustain demand. During his time in office he intro- duced controls on wages, prices and interest rates, and they were much criticised within his own party. He himself countered with characteristic robustness, maintaining that he con- tinued to believe in free enterprise and dismissing advocates of a com- pletely free market as economic troglodytes with no concern for the soda!
On international platforms, such as those offered by various Common- wealth forums, the Asian Develop- ment Bank, the World Bank and the International Monetary Rind of which he served as chairman in Muldoon generally took the side of the developing world in the North-South debate. He called for a reform of the international monetary system and urged the richer industrialised countries to improve the trading opportunities of the poorer countries, or risk a dangerous disintegration worldwide.
He replied in characteristically robust style and later iold reporters: A New Zealand frigate was dispatched to the Caribbean to take the place of a British frigate patrolling off Belize, so freeing the British ship for service elsewhere. At home Muldoon was respected across the political spectrum, but he was not particularly liked.
He was nevertheless re-elected in and again, though with a wafer-thin majority, in By , however, when he called a snap election in July, he had come under widespread criticism, not least from within his own party, where his market interventions were blamed for spawning the right-wing New Zealand Party. This siphoned sup- port from his own National Party. Nevertheless, even in these circumstances Muldoon was reluctant to relinquish control of the countiy's affairs and he almost brought on a financial and constitutional crisis when he refused to devalue the New Zealand dollar during the transition to the Labour government of Mr David Lange.
Within a few months the critics within the National Party succeeded in dislodging him from the leader- ship. However, even there he continued to goad those in power as well as to criticise his own party and its new leader, his former deputy.
When the National Party returned to government under Mr Jim BoJger in 1 Muldoon was not offered a cabinet post and refused a junior ministerial post outside the cabinet. He d aimed that the National govern- ment. In spite of his aggressive public image, M uldoon was shy and almost insecure in private. He generally shunned the social scene.
He was a prolific journalist, and published several books about his political life, but his chief recreational interest was horticulture, in particular the raising of various types of lily. In his later life his health was not good and he underwent surgery for cancer of the bowel as well as major heart surgery in recent years. Astonishingly, none of these periods in hospital were able to subdue his ferocious energies and it was ideology and not i 0-health which, in the upshot, prompted his withdrawal from parliamentary life.

From that modest begin- ning he rose to a position ofc eminence acknowledged throughout the English- speaking world and beyond. His ex- pertise spanned many centuries and many subjects. His forthright and lucidly expressed opinions and his fond of well- delivered stories made him a sought-after companion, whether at dinner or on the way to and from auction sales. Thomas used to speak of hours spent exchanging ideas with Dur- reU on the beach at Bournemouth while the two men skimmed stones on the surface of the sea.
