Heath's public denunciation, unprecedented for a Con- servative leader, was accom- panied by indications the gov- ernment is planning to "mod- ernize" company law in the next parliamentary session. His blast in the Commons was fol- lowed Wednesday by a flurry of questions from both sides on disclosures in the Lonrho case, a High Court action revolving around a boardroom squabble of rare dimensions. Ma result cf the court case, millionaire Roland (Tiny) Row- land, a colorful entrepreneur with a freebooting style of run- ning Lonrho, a company with extensive mining interests in Africa, lost his appeal against the decision of eight Lonrho di- rectors to free him. Rowland, who 25 years ago was sweeping platforms at Lon- don's Paddington Station, clashed with his board on sev- eral grounds, chiefly that he made major decisions without consulting the other directors. HIRED SAKDYS Among such decisions was the hiring on a part-time advis- ory basis of former Tory Min- ister Duncan Sandys at a sal- ary of a year and paying Sandys a lump sum of to sever the agreement and become chairman cf Lonrho. The mon- ey was to have been paid via the Cayman Islands, a haven from Britain's inland revenue. Sandys, the court heard, has since repaid the he actually received. World Jews still racial abuse victims NEW YORK (Reuter) A leading Jewish humanities group today published a world- wide survey on anti-Semitism which says the international Jewish community is still the victim of racial abuse but under net ly emerging patterns of at- tack. Naked, classical anti-Semi- tism is increasingly rare in most Western countries, says the report. But attacks on Zion- ism and Israel have become code-words for the saftie phe- Such attacks are being level- led by a broad range of groups, from the extreme right to the new left, it says. Also unveiled in the High Court were details about six- foot Tiny's style of living on company expenses, among them a country mansion by the Thames River at Maidenhead. During the hearing, a bitter personality clash emerged be- tween the ebullient Rowland and Deputy Chairman Sir Basil Smallpiece, the urban accoun- tant who formerly headed Cu- nard Steamships Ltd. and who led the attempt to unseat Row- land. Following the court decision, intervention by the Zambian government on Rowland's side has forced the other directors to hold their fire until the matter is resolved at a shareholders' meeting May 31. Lonrho stands for London and Rhodesia but the company has a large stake in Zambia. TOUCHES ROYALTY The Royal Family has nar- rowly avoided collecting some of the Lonrho mud Princess Al- exandra's husband, Angus Ogilvy, resigned his long-stand- ing directorship in the company when the Rowland affair looked like breaking into a public row. But a cartoon in The Times Wednesday showed a courtier- type confiding to another: "I just wish Angus had gone into something pictography." Princess Marga- ret's husband, Lord Snowdon, still works as a magazine pho- tographer. Labor MPs were particularly enraged by the tax-haven dis- closures and Marcus Lipton, a gadfly London MP noted for his nose for potential scandals, urged Chancellor of the Ex- chequer Anthony Barber to seek powers to force companies to publish details of directors' fees paid abroad. Seventeen Labor MPs signed a motion urging the governme.it to end such loopholes as those afforded by havens like the Caymans. Criticism also came from some Tory backbenchers. Heath's condemnation of the Lonrho practices was widely seen as a pledge by the Tories to be as tough with manage- ment as with unions in the anti- inflation battle. It came afer former Liberal pary leader Jo Gnmond suggested such "go- ings-on" were "fatal" to the government's counter-inflation policy. IN THE SPIRIT ORILLIA, Ont.
