BOAC's NEW 'Bahamas resident population

LOW ATLANTIC


FARE OF $138 up 17,000 in 2 years' report


LONDON (AP)-British
Overseas Airways Corp.
announced Monday cuts in its
round-trip fares across the
Atlantic on regularly scheduled
flights down to a new low of
59 pounds $138.65.
The new rates, if approved
by the British government,
would make it cheaper for an
American to fly from Boston
to London and back than from
Boston to Miami and back.
For Britons, it would be
cheaper to fly five hours across
the Atlantic than to fly 90
minutes to Nice, France.
A BOAC spokesman said
Monday that proposed rate
schedules had not been
provided to the office in Miami
and that the cheapest rate now
on a Miami-London, round-trip
flight is $329 for a 22-to-45
day stay.
EARLY BIRD
BOAC said the new rates
would apply only on its Early
Bird Flights tickets booked
at least three months in
advance. The fares are good on
trips of at least 10 days.
Once these qualifications are
met, the fares can apply to any
of BOAC's 15 flights daily
from Britain to North America.
The airline said the new
fares would bring charter rates
to individual travelers.
It said the cheaper rates
were possible because the
International Air Transport
Association has failed to agree
on transatlantic fares. No
further IATA meetings are
scheduled before April 1, the
date the new BOAC ticket
prices are due to take effect.


THE RESIDENT POPULATION of the Bahamas has increased
some 17,000 between mid-1970 and mid-1972, according to
figures released today by the Ministry of Statistics.


But as a department
spokesman explained, the
increase does not make
allowance for any immigration
shift among the expatriate
population.
It is understood that the
Statistics Department is now in
the process of obtaining work
permit figures from
Immigration so as to adjust the
figures accordingly.
Of the 17,000 increase
however, between 6 to 8,000
are accounted for by a natural
increase in births over deaths.
The remaining figures are
dependent on fluctuations in
immigration.
It was explained that in
computing population
increases comparisons are made
between censuses. The last
Bahamas census was taken in
1970 when the resident
population was shown as
168,000.
The previous census in 1963
showed a figure of 130,000,
indicating a 4.2 per cent per
annum increase between the
two dates.
This annual percentage
increase was used in computing
the resident population as of
June 1972, and is the only
figure available until additional
statistics are supplied by
immigration.
Other high points of the
Statistics Department's
quarterly summary for the
second quarter of 1972 ending
in June are as follows:
*-Imports of food for


household :'onsumtiion rose
from $13.5 million in 1971
2nd quarter to $16.1 million in
1972 2nd quarter.
o-The number of telephone
lines in use in New Providence
has increased from 12,754 in
1971 in 1971 2nd quarter to
13,743 in 1972 2nd quarter or
by 7.8%.
e-The average length of
visitors' stay in the Bahamas
has increased slightly from 6.2
days in June of 1971 to 6.5 in
June of 1972.
e-There was an issue of
B$9.2 million worth of
Bahamian dollar government
Treasury bills in 1972, 2nd
quarter compared with B$8.2
million in 1972, Ist quarter, a
net increase of B$1.0 million
during the 2nd quarter 1972.
The number of traffic
fatalities has decreased from
1971 2nd quarter to 1972 2nd
quarter.
e Admissions to Her
Majesty's Prison were down by
38% from 1971 1st quarter to
1972 2nd quarter.
The quarterly publication
deals with a wide range of
topics and is made up of the
following sections: Section 1
Meteorology; Section 2
Population and Vital Statistics.
Section 3 External Trade,
Section 4 Agriculture,

Withdrawal of duty-free exemption


reaps businessmen Christmas bonanza


THE LOCAL business
community reaped a
"bonanza" at Christmas as a
result of government's decision
to withdraw the $200
duty-free exemption permitted
returning residents, Chamber
of Commerce president
Holland G. Smith said today.
In an official press
statement, Mr. Smith noted
that the Chamber had
predicted such would be the
case, "and for the segment of
the local business community


Fur Bed Spread

Latest Look I

FURNITURE

catering basically to local
trade, this was essentially the
result."
Looking across the business
spectrum, Mr. Smith said the
Chamber would again predict
that the independence
celebrations coupled with
Goombay Summer would have
some "startling cash flow
results for the business
community in 1973
irrespective of whether the
particular business is catering
to local trade or to tourist
trade."
The Chamber president
foreshadowed that eating
places and hotel
accommodations were going to
be h.1d pressed to meet the
demand due to the influx of
visitors.
MURMURS
"There have been murmurs
of high prices on some items of


goods offered for sale to the
tourists," Mr. Smith observed.
However the Chamber's
Tourism Committee was
looking into this to see
whether in fact this was so and
what could be done about it.
"Not only will the Chamber
encourage local business houses
to keep prices down, but it will
also encourage them to offer as
many bargain deals as
possible." he said.
Items which carry a high
tariff, and which result in
prices that are not competitive
with other markets visited by
the tourist, arc to be the
subject of discussion with
government to see what
adjustments can be made.
Commented Mr. Smith: "!t
is the intention of the Chamber
to establish the Bahamas in the
minds of visitors as the number
one shopping area in the
Caribbean which it really is."


yesterday to what one staff
's failure to find a workable


the staff of Walton Young and
C. I. Gibson were prepared at
the opening of thie school year
to give the present arrangement
a try, but have found it totally
impractical.
"Not only is the staff
becoming deimoral/ed, but the
students are not receiving the
education to which they are
entitled," oliser\ ed one
teacher.
In a number of meetings tihe
teachers decided that the only
alternative was a shift system
which would allow fist the
students of C. 1 Gibson to
attend classes in the main
buildings from 8 a.m. to noon
and then all the students of
Walton Young, including those
at Donald Davis, to attend
from I p.m. to 5 p.m.
"Even though the children
would only be getting four
hours instruction that would
be better than no instruction at
all, which is what is happening
now," the teacher said.
APPROVED, BUT....
It is understood that the
recommendation was put to
Education Minister Livingston
Coakley at a special meeting
last Wednesday and he gave his
approval, but the shift scheme
was turned down by the
Cabinet.
Also said to be opposed to
the plan is the Bahamas
Teachers Union, although none
of the teachers involved are
members of the union.
Efforts by The Tribune to
contact union president Cecil
Curling today were
unsuccessful.
Because of the plan's
rejection, teachers returned
yesterday to begin the Easter
Term under the same hopeless
conditions.
Parents, who are apparently
unaware of the situation, have
been asked to attend an
emergency Parent-Teachers
meeting called for tomorrow
night.
Reportedly they are to be
told exactly what the position
is with regard to their children.
UPIIFAVAL
The upheaval caused by the
lack of school facilities for the
L W. Young children has also
spilled over into the area of
athletics, and may well force
cancellation of the second half
of the Bahamas Amateur
Basketball Association's
1972-'73 series.
The first half of the series
was played in the A. F.
Adderley High School gym
which is presently being used
by students taking the G.C'.F.
examinations.
Since November 15 when it
became known the A. F.
Adderley gym was to be used
for examination purposes, Mr.
Vince Ferguson, president of
the BABA has been trying to
contact the Ministry of
Education for a substitution.
The Ministry promised to
look into the matter.
Recently the Association
was informed by the Ministry
that a plan was being discussed
in which the Association might
get the use of either the C. I.
Gibson gym or the Eastern
Secondary School gym.
However both the Eastern
gym and the C. I. Gibson gytm
are being used to house
students of the L. W. Young
school.
The BABA series was
.scheduled to resume January 3
but had to be cancelled. If no
gym becomes available to the
Association this month it will
be forced to cancel this
month's session.

8 Haitians here illegally



sent to jail for 7 days



and ordered deported

EIGHT HAITIAN NATIONALS, found aboard a small sailing
vessel near the Exumas Saturday, were imprisoned for seven
days pending execution of a deportation order imposed by Acting
Chief Magistrate Wilton Hercules when they appeared in the


lower court this morning.
Antonio (;edeon, captain of
the Dieu Sauveur. which took
the men to Fxunia,
was separately charged with
preparing to land 37 illegal
immigrants and ordered to
serve seven days in prison to
run concurrently with a
seven-day sentence fol
travelling without proper
documents.
Gedeon, through court
interpreter Vera (artwright,
said he was not aware that the
passports carried by seven
passengers were invalid. He
thought it was all they needed.
Gedeon this morning had his
guilty plea changed to not
guilty for transporting the
seven Haitians who appeared
with him. Hie said they were
brought here as sailors and it
was his intention to take them
back when he returned.
Appearing in court with
Gedeon this morning were
three women passengers, Jean
Baptiste Botange, Vercilia
Beaubrum, Marie Alphansie
Auguste and four men, Lifaite
Tanis, Mr. Jean Baptiste
Borange and Elivett Duroseau.
CONCERNED
Their vessel, the Dieu
Sauveur, was ordered
confiscated by the magistrate
who said he was concerned
about the boat and did not
wish to deprive them of their
means of livelihood in Haiti.
Mr. Smith, who said it was
his hope the immigrants would
be deported within seven days,
told Magistrate Hercules that
his suggestion that the Haitians
be put aboard their sailboat
and taken to sea with
provisions to return to their
homeland "would impose a
problem" to carry out.
Insisting that he was
"instructed" to call for the
confiscation of the vessel, he
said the Magistrate would
understand his plea if he knew
"the story behind how they
came here."
lie was possibly referring to
a report, made by informed
sources, that 9 immigrants
had been found concealed in a
special compartment that had
been built in thevessel.
it is reported that police
officers who boarded the Dieu
Sauveur found the 29 Haitians,
who did not appear in court
with Gedeon and the seven
convicted men, hidden in the
compartment. It is understood
the compartment was
underneath the section that
stored their provisions of fruit
and bananas.
CREW
Gedeon, asked by the
magistrate this morning why he
brought the laitians here, said
he had them as part of his
crew.
however, the Magistrate was
told by Chief Immigration
Officer Maurice Trevor Smith,
that neither of the eight who
appeared in court this morning
were in possession of proper
travel documents, "a seaman's
card, or a health certificate".
Mr. Smith said the Haitian
vessel had been intercepted by


police officers aboard the
launch Acklins, which was on
patrol near the Fxuma Cays on
Saturday, January 6.
It is understood that a
second Haitian vessel, also
intercepted Saturday in the
Exumnas, was brought to
Nassau with its passengers and
crew. They are now in prison
awaiting deportation.
The vessel, also a sailboat,
had no ship's papers, it was
reported.
IMPRISONED
Twenty-nine other Iaitians
aboard the Dieu Sauveur, who
did not appear in court, are
also imprisoned at IIM., Prison.
(edeon, contacted this
afternoon, said he and his
fellow Haitians left their home
port of Port de Paix
Wednesday, January 3.
lie said the Dieu Sauveur,
which was ordered confiscated,
did not belong to him but to
another Haitian. Unable to
remember the owner's name,
he said one of the women
brought to Nassau aboard the
boat was the wife of the
owner.
Arriving in the Ixumas on
Saturday, his vessel was
boarded by police authorities
and brought to Nassau
yesterday.

PLP LAWYER'S SURPRISE

MOVE IN ELECTION CASE



Jamaican QC asks for



scrutiny of protest votes



also by Election Court

By \MIKE LOTHIAN
JAMAICAN Q.C. VIVIEN BLAKE precipitated another legal
battle Monday afternoon when lie submitted in the Election
Court that the validity of protest votes cast in the September 19
North End Long Island election must also be tested when regular
and rejected ballots are scrutinised.


\r Blake's suipuise imoive
canle in a bid to strengthen the
position o l'P .' election
candidate Philip Smitl, whni,
the Jamaican att ne'y
represents in the :lectlitm
Court hearing, and lt was
supported by Attorney general l
Gerald (ollett. Q.(., counsel
for Returning Officer
l.ivingston Smith.
The lion. Etugene I)upuch,
Q.('., leading counsel for lNM
candidate (yril Fountain, this
morning argued against a test
at this stage of the protest
votes' validity, and also
countered Mr. Blake's earlier
submission that no grounds
had been established for a
scrutiny of the votes cast by
two allegedly non-resident
voters in the Sept. 1) poll.
Mr. Blake told the presiding
judges. chieff Justice Sir
Gordon Bryce and Mr. Justice
James Smith, in the five-day
old hearing that if a scrutiny of
certain regular and rejected
ballots revealed that in fact Mr.
Fountain received a majority
of regular votes in the Sept. 19
balloting, then PLP candidate
Smith would be entitled to
have the validity of all protest
votes cast in the election tested
by the Election Court.
lie based his submission on a
section of the Representation
of the People Act.
The relevant section
provides that if one candidate
has a majority of regular votes,
but a second candidate has a
total of regular votes and
protest votes higher than the
number of regular votes for the
first candidate, then the second
candidate would be entitled to
have the validity of all protest
votes determined by the
election Court.
NO PROVISION
However, according to Mr.
Blake, there is no provision for
a testing of protest votes where
an equality of regular votes is
found between two candidates,
as was the apparent case, until
the current proceedings, in the
Sept. 19 election in North End
Long Island.
And as there is a time limit.
already expired, on the
initiation of proceedings for
the determination of protest
votes, he argued, if a scrutiny
now showed Mr. Fountain the
winner with a majority of
regular votes the PLP candidate
would be blocked from having
his protect votes testestsd.
lie suhnitted that a scrutiny
ol certain votes might show
thit Mr. Fountain had a
mialirity of regular votes, but
\i Smith's four protest votes,
it tested, proved valid and
re-designated as regular votes,
,i tld upset the Fountain
victory.
Mr. Fountain had only one
protest vote.
('ountering that argument
this morning, Mr. Dupuch told
the court that while the law
made no specific provision for
the testing of protest votes
where there is an equality of
regular votes, neither is there
anything to stop a candidate
from applying for a
determination of protest votes
in such a situation.
Further. Mr. Dupuch said,
the Flection Court is hound by
the rules to deal only with
matters concerning specific
votes or voters which are
included in lists supplied to the
court by the parties concerned
in advance of the beginning of
hearings.
Referring to documents
submitted by the PLP
candidate before the start of
the hearings, Mr. Dupuch
declared:
FIRST TIME
"T1here is nothing in this
pleading to indicate the court
would be asked to count
protest votes. And when he
asked the court yesterday to
count protest votes he raised it
for the first time, after I had


closed my case
"If the respondent had tiled
a list he can add to it, but he
cannot amend a list it no list
was ever filed
"lie has filed no particulars
or answers referring to protest
votes, or put either me or the
court on notice that he would
be relying on protest votes. He
in fact amended his answer in
detail and they included no
reference to protest votes."
Mr. Dupuch said the
introduction of the issue of
protest votes "changes the
entire complexion of the case
at a stage when I have
completed my case We are
confronted with a completely
new case.
Mr. Dupuch also replied to
Mr. Blake's submission that the
evidence heard by the Election
C('ourt was not sufficient to
prove, as Mr. Fountain claimed
in his petition, that Delores
and Melvira Cartwright were
not resident in the North End
Long Island constituency
during the period required to
qualify hem to vote in
elections there.
ON PETITIONER
Mr. Blake said that as the
two women, former students
of the San Salvador Teachers'
College, were properly on the
voters' register, the onus was
on the petitioner, Mr.
Fountain, to prove his claim
that they failed to meet
residency qualifications.
Replying. Mr. Dupuch
pointed out this morning that
the law said no registered voter
shall be entitled to vote
"unless" he or she was a British
subject, possessed Bahamian
status and met residency
qualifications.
The key word "unless," Mr.
Dupuch said, shifted the
burden of proof to the voter to
prove his or her qualification
to vote once that qualification
was challenged and the reasons
for the challenge spelled out.
lie said the evidence heard -
that the two women had been
teaching within the Clarence
Town constituency since late
1971 constituted a prima
facie case and "no evidence
whatever has been called to
rebut it."
REJECTED
Therefore, he submitted the
votes of the two women should
be rejected by the Election
Court.
Mr. Blake's submission on
protest votes followed his
statement earlier yesterday
that Mr. Fountain had
produced evidence to prove
"beyond doubt" that one of
the votes counted in the Sept.
It) election should never have
been cast, as the voter was
improperly registered.
The Jamaican Q.C. also
conceded that there should be
a scrutiny of two votes rejected
by the Returning Officer and
of another ballot which the
Returning Officer may have
wrongfully accepted.
At the election on Sept. 19
Returning Officer Smith found
incorrectly, according to Mr.
Fountain's petition that
both the FNM candidate and
the PLP candidate had received
473 regular votes. The
Returning Officer, acting in
accordance with the provisions
of the Act, therefore declared
the election void and called for
a fresh poll on October 6.
FNM voters were instructed
to boycott the second poll and
Mr. Smith was declared the
winner.

the kidnappers apparently are members of the rather diminished National
Uheration Army (ELN), a ('astroist guerrilla operating in northern
Colombia.
No ransom or contacts with the kidnappers were reported, hut in
another similar case last week, Professor Jairo Duque Golmel was freed
only after relatives of his paid a 20,000 dollars ransom.
Businessman Carlos Angel and a son of his were the latest victims while
travelling by car to their farm in Segovia, about 00 miles northwest from
kBgota.
Ih the Chaparral region, 180 miles southwest from Btogtta. industrialist
Ignacio Raud was also reported missing, apparently after being kidnapped
by guerrillas. Last Iriday three other wealthy businessmen had been
kidnapped, among them Hernando Mora lDe I.a Hot. the owner of
important industries and supermarkets.
The ('astroist guerrillas apparently are trying to obtain funds through
kidnapping for their 10 years old mtovenment, which has been recently
plagued with desertion and inactivity.
Kidnapping was a frequent tactic of leftist guerrillas years ago. adopted
by nmaffla-lke hands in different parts of the country.

'No sign showing



negotiations will


reach results'-Hanoi

PARIS, JAN. 9 (AP)--Henry A. Kissinger and Le Duc Tho met
for another negotiating session today in an effort to put a
negotiated end to the Indochina War.


President Nixon's national
sccuritt adviser was host to the
North Vietnamese Politburo
member at a house in St. Nom
la Breteche, 10 miles west of
Paris. Tho had been the host
Monday when the negotiations
resumed after a three-week
suspension.
But Hanoi warned that
"there has not been any sign
showing that the negotiations
vill reach any results."
As usual, neither side said
anything about what went on
in Monday's 4/2-hour session.
Kissinger, President Nixon's
national security adviser, left
the meeting without his usual
smile, and there were no public
cordial farewells like those
during the last round of
negotiations in December.
The North Vietnamese
delegation in Paris talks said
privately that the public
displays of friendliness were
dropped because of President
Nixon's bombing campaign
against Hanoi and Haiphong.
DEIMANI)S
Nhan Dan, the official
newspaper of the North
Vietnamese (ommunist Party,
said today that Hanoi was still
demanding the signing of the
draft agreement Kissinger and
Tho worked out in October.
"If the American aggressors
abandon their colonialist
viewpoint, the peace agreement
reached Oct. 20, 1972, can be
signed," it said.
But there has not been any
sign showing that the
negotiations will reach any
results.
"On the contrary, very bad
signs on the part of the United
States have been repeated again
and again. On Jan. 5, Nixon
brazenly declared that he
would continue the policy of
May 8, 1972, which is the
policy of mining, blockading
and bombardments against
North Vietnam.
"Our people are full of good
will, but also are full of
determination and force, so
that if Nixon continues the
war, we will persistently carry
on the struggle on all three
military, political and
diplomatic fronts in the

ISRAEL & SYRIA

IN SHARP CLASH
I :I. AVIV (Al')--Israel and
Syria battled with tanks and
artillery along the cease-fire line
Monday after Israeli jets knifed
deep into Syria four times and shot
down six MI(;21 jets, the Israeli
command said.
The command said all of its jets
returned safely after four attacks.
Damascus Radio said Syria lost
three jets hut knocked down four
Israeli fighters two in dogfights
and two hy ground fire.
Damascus Radio claimed Syrian
forces wiped out IS Israeli tanks,
10 artillery pieces and two heavy
machine-gun nets and destroyed
Israeli posts in II villages along the
(Golan Heights cease-fire line.
Thle Israeli command said it
destroyed six Syrian tanks. The
lighting broke off alter sunset, a
Syrian communique said.
Israel said the air attacks were in
retaliation to three shooting
incidents along the cease-fire line
over tile weekend. The frontier has
erupted off antd ot with heavy
fighting since September when
Israel hegan reprisal raids against
Syria for harbouring bases from
which guerrillas attacked.
Israeli jets flew as far as 170
miles into Syria, honlhing army
camp ear L.atakia, a regrilar port of
call for Soviet ships. There was no
report of whether Soviet ships were
at L.atakia during the raid. the
Israeli command said.
The Israeli fighters also attacked
four radar installations, artillery
and army anrd guerrilla posts, the
command said. l)amascus Radio
said tIW'u Syrian radar stations were
deslroyed.
Syria said one soldier was killed
and tswo were wounded in tlhe
l.atakia attack and that air raids
near the (;elan lteights killed one
of its soldiers and wounded six.
Israel claimed two of its soldiers
sere wounded in the ground
fighting.
The downed Ml(;21s brought
Syriar plane losses to 46 since the
1967 war and 15 in she past three
months, by Isrucli count.
The international institute of
strategic studies says Syria had 100
MI(;2 I interceptorrs last year, some
of them iil storage.


Syria urged other Arab countries
to "immediately go into battle with
Israel and not let Syria stand alone
and take the enemy bhlow."
The Israeli-Syrian clash was a top
item on Cairo Radio hut there was
no immediate government reaction.
President Anwar Sadat flqw to
Libya Monday and will discuss the
clashes with L.) hian leader
Muammar Kadafi. the Cairo press
reported.
A previous statement by the
ruling cabinet of the three federal
states of Syria. Igypt and Libya
says that an attack oln one country
would be considered an attack on
all. But, us in previous clashes there
was no reported move from either
Lihya or Egypt to help Syria.


determination to gain our
fundamental national rights
and the right of self-
determination of the whole
Vietnamese people."
LUNCH
Kissinger and Tho had lunch
in the villa, but officials
declined to say whether they
lunched together.
Communist sources said
privately that Tho's snub to
Kissinger was a reflection of
the strong feelings aroused in
North Vietnam by the
bombing of Hanoi and
Haiphong in which thousands
of civilians were claimed killed
or injured.
Kissinger told a Washington
news conference on Dec. 16
that he and Tho had worked
out 99 per cent of a cease-fire
agreement. lHe declined to give
details of the one per cent still
to be settled, hut it seemed
clear that major issues of
principle were involved.
Nixon told Congressional
leaders last week that the new
session of talks should
demonstrate fairly quickly
whether Hanoi was prepared to
negotiate seriously on what the
United States regards as the
three basic issues; the return of
American prisoners, the right
of South Vietnam to determine
its own future and effective
supervision of a cease-fire
agreement.
CONDITIONS
There has been little dispute
here over the ultimate return
of the prisoners, but Hanoi has
always stressed that their
return was conditioned on a
general settlement regarded as
satisfactory by the Communist
side. American officials
consequently accused Hanoi of
holding the prisoners as
hostages.
South Vietnam's
independent future and an
effective cease-fire machinery
were apparently at the core of
the continuing discussions.
Both points were mentioned
in the agreement drafted by
Kissinger and Tho in October.
President Nguyen van Thieu
denounced that draft as a
"prescription for suicide" for
South Vietnam because of
ambiguities in the text and the
absence of any'requirement for
withdrawal of North
Vietnamese troops from the
south.
There was no official word
from Saigon that Thieu has
changed his mind. But Tho
asserted on arrival here
Saturday that unless the
United States accepted the
October draft essentially in its
original form it would have to
face a continuation of the war.
FINAL EFFORT
In his only public statement
since returning to Paris,
Kissinger implied that the
current series of talks might be
a final effort to reach
agreement on the basis of the
October draft.
Arriving from Washington
on Sunday, he said President
Nixon had sent him back for
"one more major effort to
conclude the negotiations."
In Washington, defense
secretary Melvin R. Laird told
the House armed services
committee that if the talks
should fail South Vietnam
would be virtually ready to
take over its own defense
without American logistic, air
or ground support.
Laird told the Congressmen,
however, that Nixon was
determined to stay in the war
until American prisoners are
freed and Hanoi accounts for
missing American soldiers and
airmen.

WATERGATE TRIAL BEGINS I.S. ill IREMIVED


lY DISAPPEARANCE 6 Nixon staffers

OF GUN KILLERS


NEW ORLEANS
(AP)-Heavily armed police
rushed a rooftop hotel bunker
Monday afternoon in a search
for snipers who killed six
persons and wounded 17
others. But they found no
trace of the gunmen who began
shooting and burning more
than 24 hours earlier, and the
officers began combing the
hotel.
At one point there was a
report that one gunman was
trapped in an air-conditioning
duct, but a search turned up no
one.
A police radio commander
said after the assault on the
bunker: "The roof is secure
and there is nothing up there."
Another policeman said
officers would begin a
floor-by-floor, room-by-room
search of the hotel, which was
evacuated earlier. No trace of
the gunman or gunmen was
found.
The officers climbed to the
roof of the 18-storey
downtown Howard Johnson
Hotel, cautiously approached
the concrete elevator shaft
where the snipers were believed
holed up and fired through a
doorway.
Weilding axes, police forced
open the door and other
officers followed with repeated
rounds of automatic fire.
There was no immediate
indication that the fire was
returned.
Three policemen fell:
apparently hit in the legs by
ricocheting bullets. None was
believed seriously hurt
BODY
About 10 feet from the
elevator shaft lay the body of a
sniper, killed Sunday by police
marksmen who flew over the
rooftop in a marine helicopter.
The flight by the helicopter
was one of several made in an
attempt to flush the gunmen
out.
The police remained
clustered around the bunker
for about 15 minutes. They
forced open two hatches atop
the roof of the shaft, firing
more shots into the bunker.
Police appeared perplexed
by the disappearance of the
snipers from the rooftop.
There also, was confusion about
just how many snipers
remained alive.
"Where in the hell could he
have gone?" asked Capt.
Edward Laporte. "They were
there at 4 o'clock this
morning."
One U.S. television network
carried a 34-minute live
broadcast of the assault, on
nationwide television. Another
carried an ll-minute live
telecast, starting after the main
assault was over.
There were unconfirmed
reports during the day Monday
of sunshots from a second
building, several blocks from
the hotel.
More than an hour after the
gunfire reported at the second
site, there were no further
details. Unconfirmed reports
said that a woman was shot,
but police spokesmen at a
command headquarters said
they had no immediate
information for the news
media.
The trouble began Sunday
morning. Authorities were
called to the hotel to put out
small fires, apparently set by
the gunmen. When firemen
tried to put out the blaze, they
were shot.
Throughout the day and
night, police tried to flush out
the snipers described by one
witness as black men. The
gunmen first raced from floor
to floor of the hotel, then took
over the roof.
The entire downtown area
was cordoned off; public
transit was halted at the edge
of the battle zone; businesses
urged customers and
employees to stay home to
avoid getting hit by the fire of
the snipers who had long-range,
automatic weapons.


MANAGUA DEATH TOLL IN 'QUAKE

NOW ESTIMATED AT 10-12,000


MANAGUA (AP) A
spokesman for the Nicaraguan
government said today latest
estimates put the death toll in
the Dec.- 23 earthquake at
between 10,000 and 12,000
persons.
Ivan Osorio. press
spokesman for Gen. Anastasio
Somoza, said the estimate
comes from foreign technicians
doing relief work in Managua
and is an estimate only. It is
not based on any actual body
count, he said.
Authorities were still
burning bodies in downtown
Managua as workers pulled the
rubble away that covered the
dead. About 200 bodies of
prisoners and guards were


burned after being found in the
ruins of a jail.
Health authorities were also
spraying insecticide over the
ruins for the second time in an
effort to eliminate the millions
of flys attracted by the
decaying corpses.
Meanwhile, some
businessmen began to criticise
a congressional order for a 10
per cent export tax on most of
the country's basic products.
The businessmen said the
tax should be on income and
not on production. In another
action the Congress extended
an order that government
employees give up one month's
salary to include all officers in
the national guard. Enlisted
men were excluded.

Demo bugging case


WASHINGTCN (AP) Six members of President Nixon's
White House or campaign staff were listed as potential witnesses
as the Watergate affair trial began Monday for seven men charged
with breaking into Democratic Party headquarters.


The Nixon aides were listed
among 60 witnesses which
federal prosecutors planned to
call in what is expected to be a
lengthy trial stemming from
the break-in and electronic
bugging of Democratic.
National Com rn i I .',
headquarters in Washington's
Watergate complex.
The defendants include a
former White House
consultant, a former official of
Nixon's re-election campaign
committee and another man
who worked at both places.
Asst. U.S. Atty, Earl J.
Silbert said among the
witnesses he intends to call is
Jeb Magruder. a former chief
lieutenant in the White House
communications office and a
top official of the Nixon
campaign committee: Herbert
R. Porter, who was in charge of
the surrogate speaker program
in Nixon's campaign; Robert C.
Odle Jr., personnel director of
the Committee for the
Re-election of the President;
and Hugh W. Sloan, former
treasurer of the Finance
Committee to Re-elect the
President.
Also on Silbert's list were
Fred Fielding, a White House
attorney; Bruce Kehrli, a White
House secretary; and Alfred C.
Baldwin III, a former FBI
agent who is believed to be the
government's chief informant.
Baldwin said in a Los Angeles
Times interview in October
that as an employee of the
Nixon campaign committee he
participated in bugging at the
Democratic headquarters.
1,000 SUBPOENAS
The jury selection is
expected to take a week or
more, and some 1,000
subpoenas have been issued for
V special panel from which a
jury will be drawn.
Chief U.S. Dist. court judge
John J. Sirica has ordered that
the jury be sequestered during
the trial because of the
controversial and political
nature of the case and the
widespread publicity it has
drawn.
"Don't blame any attorney
or defendant or the
government," Sirica said. "It is
my decision."
On trial are:
*-George Gordon Liddy,
former White House and
Treasury Department aide and
counsel for the Finance
Committee to Re-elect the
President until he was fired for
refusing to answer questions
from the FBI.
u-Everett Howard Hunt Jr.,
former White House consultant


who worked under top Nixon
aide Charles Colson.
e-James W. Mc('ord Jr.,
security co-ordinator for the
Nixon committee at the time
of the Watergate break-in.
*-Bernard L. Barker, a
Miami real-estate executive,
who already has been
convicted of unlawfully
notarizing a $25,000
check-representing mnon'y
contributed to the Nixon
campaign and given a 60-day
suspended sentence.
e-Eugenia R. Martinez,
Frank A. Sturgis, and Virgilio
R. (onzalez. Barker associates
from Miami.
('AUGHT IN ACT
The seven are charged in
connection with a break-in at
Democratic headquarters in the
early morning hours of last
June 17. McCord, Barker,
Martinez, Sturgis and Gonzalez
were captured inside the
Watergate after a guard noticed
several locks had been taped
open.
The defendants are charged
variously in an eight-count
indictment with conspiracy,
interception of oral and wire
communications, burglary and
unlawful possession of
intercepting devices.
They appeared solemn and
composed as they took seats
for the trial opening, flanked
by a battery of eight attorneys.
The defense lawyers did not
reveal the names of witnesses
they expect to call.
The Watergate case became a
hot issue in last year's
presidential campaign because
of the links between the
indicted men and the White
House, the Nixon campaign
and the Republican Party.
The White House has denied
any connection with the
break-in and bugging.

By ETIENNE DUPUCH
"I DON'T think much of a man who is not wiser today than he
was yesterday", is one of the oft-quoted pearls of wisdom
bequeathed to human thought by Abraham Lincoln.
Arising out of this observation is a thought that .... if it has not
yet been expressed in words .... I will record today.
It is that all human prejudices are bred in ignorance. Fortunate
is the man who is not so completely blinded by his prejudices
that he refuses to see the truth when it comes within his vision.
**********


In several of the articles I have written since I have established
temporary residence in Florida I have admitted that I had always
thought that Florida was flat, ugly and completely lacking in
character .... I had made up my mind that I could not possibly
like this part of the U.S.
This conclusion arose out of the fact that all I had seen of
Florida was Miami. True, I had driven through other parts of
Florida but at a time when I was not interested .... and so both
my mind and my eyes were closed by a preconceived prejudice
against this State.
Now I am here at leisure. I am moving around with my eyes
and mind .... and also my heart .... open. As a result I find myself
liking this place so much that, if I tarry here too long, I will not
carry out my original intention when I left the Bahamas of
establishing a home in Europe.
I could be very happy here. Far from being ugly and lacking in
character, the parts of Florida I have seen since I have been here
are full of beauty and character.
Now I am telling myself that I must go to Europe because I
can be engaged in interesting and important projects there where
I have friends who want me to share in their activities. In Florida
I will not meet such a challenge. I would sink into idleness.
Way back in the year 65 .... that is 65 years after Christ .... the
great philosopher Seneca declared: I would rather be sick than
idle".
SI share his feeling in ais respect.
***********
In an earlier article I told you how a couple drove in from
Naples .... a distance of 125 miles .... to meet my wife and me and
take us out to lunch.
The wife in this couple is the niece of one of the wonderful
nurses who took care of me when I was desperately ill in Doctors
Hospital here in 1966.
They said they wanted to meet us because the nurse was
constantly talking about us.
We spent a day together in Miami and then they insisted on us
visiting them in their home in Naples.
They were nice people .... we liked them .... and so we drove
with the nurse to Naples today.
When we left Miami I had no idea of where Naples lay on the
map of Florida or what might be its claim to distinction. I was to
find out that it was a completely residential area.
The road to Naples ran along the Tamiami Trail. This Trail
forms the outer boundary of the Everglades, which is recognized
as the territory of Indians, rattlesnakes and crocodiles. It is said
to be beautiful wild country.
All along the Trail were Indian villages, an Indian restaurant
where we stopped for tea and numerous stopping places where
fast river boats were for rent with Indian guides for a trip into the
heart of the Everglades.
Along the entire stretch of the Trail were canals that ran into
the interior of the land.
At one of our stops we saw a burly American with a heavy
revolver in a holster strapped on his hip. He gave us a friendly
hail.
"Hunting?", I asked.
"Just shot a big rattler," was his cheerful reply.
*+******


As we approached Naples we found ourselves in a small
business section of first class shops.
And then we moved into the residential area of fine houses all
the way. This town faces on the Gulf of Mexico.
Further on we went into what might be described as the
exclusive section of Naples. This looked like Millionaire's Row to
me.
Here our host lived. I was soon to discover that he was a retired
member of the U.S. Federal Reserve Board and retired President
of a chain of small banks which had been founded in the small
town of Attica, Ohio by his grandfather nearly a century ago. He
was succeeded in the Presidency of the bank by his nephew.
As soon as we got settled in his drawing room our host brought
out three copies of my book The Tribune Stor:. I had sent a
copy of this book to my nurse soon after it was published. She
had lent it to her niece and husband. They had read it and liked it
so much that he had ordered three copies through a book agent in
Miami. He asked me to autograph a copy for him and his wife, a
copy for his daughter, who was married and living with her family
in the North, and for a charming couple who were also guests for
lunch. This couple had a German background. They were also
retired and had a house in this area.
This residential area is built on an interior chain of canals,
covering a hundred or more miles, that draws its waters from the
Gulf of Mexico through the Bay of Naples.
The water in the canals in the Everglades is fresh. That in the
Bay of Naples is salt ocean water.
After lunch we were taken for a boat ride through the canals.
It was like being in Venice again. The only difference was that the
houses along the banks of the canal were magnificent modern
buildings surrounded by beautiful gardens and stretches of the
greenest lawns I have seen anywhere in my travels. One extensive
lawn was planted in grass used on golf courses.
A building lot in this area would run into anything up to
$200,000.
Here these people had beauty, the kind of exclusiveness that
money can buy in a free country, an interesting waterway
stocked with fish right at their front door. All in the midst of a
perfect tropical setting.

wealthy people to places like the Bahamas.
I suggest the following as possible reasons:
The Bahamas has provided a perfect escape route for people
in over-taxed countries.
Many people like the idea of living in a foreign land.
The former friendliness of our people attracted wealthy
families to our islands on the one indisputable fact of life that
"love begets love".
There is also something solid about life in a British
community by contrast with life in the U.S., where licence is
often confused with liberty.
The Bahamas has the most beautiful waters and beaches in
the world; and its well-stocked reefs are among the safest and
most attractive in the world. The Great Barrier Reef of Australia
is a place of great beauty but it is dangerous. Sharks in Australia
are killers. Sharks in the Bahamas do not attack a live person in
the water. I have written on this subject before and given a theory
to explain this strange, phenomenon advanced by a scientist at the
Lerner Marine Laboratory at Bimini.
And, until recently, the islands provided a sense of security
.... and a feeling of welcome .... for wealthy foreigners who had
homes in such areas as Cable Beach and Lyford Cay, No one
wanted to intrude on their privacy.
Many of the conditions that formerly attracted wealth to our
islands have been removed .... and there is a feeling that those
that remain may be threatened.
****** ****
Now .... I am not going into detail. Every reader of this column
is .ware of the changes that have come about in the colony that
have made the islands less attractive to investors and particularly
to prospective wealthy residents. As a result the important
building industry that supported thousands of our people has
ground to a halt.
********i*
As I have often said in this column .... nothing in life is free.
We pay a price for everything.
The time comes in every man's experience when he pauses and
checks up on the price he pays for rewards he receives. Often he
decides he is paying too much for something that at one time
seemed most desirable when the price was right.
And when I speak of price, I don't mean money. I mean
human values.
****** ***
Today I will remind my older readers of an event in 1942
that had great significance. It was a straw in the wind that.
indicates how easily the social climate can change its course.
During a decade prior to 1942 Hog Island .... since renamed
Paradise Island .... was the rendezvous of the rich and exclusive
American colony in t!ie Bahamas.
That year Nassau had a riot with a racial undertone.
Immediately after this riot the entire Hog Island colony closed
theinhouses .... packed their bags .... and moved to Florida ....
never to return.
They said at the time that they read the handwriting on the
wall. They didn't like the message it conveyed.
I have no more to say.

Princess kisses her guards


officer farewell at dockside
By Rodney Pinder
LONDON (AP)--Two kisses on a quayside appeared Monday
night to clinch growing reports that Princess Anne, only daughter


She appealed to the public
for its support "in money and
voluntary service."
"I know," she wrote in her
circular letter, "that you will
respond, for you know that the
principle on which the Red
Cross conducts appeals for
funds is that it asks the public
for only what it needs and does
not merely try to get all it
can."
Following is the text of Mrs.
Eldon's public appeal:
"As President of Bahamas
Red Cross, firstly I wish to
thank all those of you, who in
the past have helped so
generously, either in money or
giving of your time. It would
not have been possible for Red
Cross to continue were it not
for your support.
"It may be thought by some
people that Red Cross activities
in peacetime are of a limited
character. This is not so as may
be seen from the varied services
carried out by the Branch in
our annual report.
"Your Red Cross forms a
line of hope. Their lifeline is in
the hands of dedicated
personnel and is thrown out in
all directions.
"Here in New Providence we
offer services to the needy -
aged, infirm, physically and
mentally sick and to
undernourished children of
mothers with limited earning
capacity. The daily hot meals
to the disabled and sick is a
life-saver and for many it is the
only good meal for the day.
Forty-five persons benefit from
Meals-on-Wheels and many
more need it if only there were
more volunteers to take around
the meals and, of course,
money.
'The Home Help Service -
whereby the one or two small
rooms of the handicapped,
aged or sick persons are
cleaned and so made possible
for them not only to live in a
cleaner atmosphere, but also
gives them an hour or two of
companionship. These and
many other necessary
activities, like food parcels to

Citibank's Christmas bonanza

WHILE THE CITIBANK Christmas tree on Park Avenue in
New York was being maligned by the head of Tiffany's in that
city, one thousand miles away in Nassau the little occupants
of the Children's Emergency Hostel were hailing Citibank as the
most wonderful Santa their uncertain lives had ever known


THE FIRST LADY AT FIRST NATIONAL was a very important part of the
proceedings on December 22, when Mrs. Marguerite Pindling arrived to present the
youngsters from the Children's Emergency Hostel with a "reuglar" gift and with
"something Special", a bank book with an initial deposit. The Citibank Club is now
soliciting public supporters willing to continue the deposits throughout the year. Santa
was played by Citibank's Eric Dean. Looking on are Mrs. Carmen Reynal, wife of
Citibank's general manager Eric Reynal, far right.

New uniforms
OUT ISLAND Airways (OIA
announced today the adoption
3f "new and colourful
uniforms" for its stewardesses.
The new uniforms are to be
seen initially on OIA's prime
routes between Nassau and
Freeport, Miami and Abaco,
with all other routes to follow
soon.
The colour schematics and
combinations for the new
uniforms were chosen by Mrs.
Donna Maria Carrer, chief
stewardess of the airline and
Mrs. Persis Hepburn, supervisor
of sales administration, with
the approval of Edward F.
Albury, Out Island Airways'
managing director. The new
outfits, in eight possible
combinations or variations,
each symbolize the attractions
of the Bahamas.
"There are short-sleeve and
long-sleeve bush jackets in
white representing the
beautiful sandy beaches of our
Islands. The blue skirts, slacks
and jumpers stand for the land
and luxuriant growth found in
the Family Islands, and the
yellow emphasizes the superior
sunshine of the Bahamas. The

The First National City
Bank, this Christmas, came up
with a new and different idea
about Christmas presents for
underprivileged children. Oh,
there were the toys the dolls
and trucks and chemistry sets
- but there was something
else, there was a literal
passbook which just about
guaranteed that life in a hostel
will be somewhat brighter
during 1973.
There now exists for each
child in the Children's
Emergency Hostel, a savings
account at Citibank, with an
initial deposit donated by the
bank.
Thi ,n n il nlpA at a


special Christmas party held in
the lounge of the new Citibank
building on December 22,
when Mrs. Marguerite Pindling,
wife of the Prime Minister of
the Bahamas, personally
handed each child a regular
gift, plus his own bank book
showing his deposit.
Back from London, where
she had accompanied her
husband to the constitutional
talks, Mrs. Pindling presented
each child with a gift.
Mrs. Eric Reynal, wife of
Citibank's general manager,
and Sterling Quant, president
of the Citibank Club, which
sponsored the event, assisted
her.


u at a PUBLIC HELP
The Christmas event does
not end there, however, for the
Citibank Club has, in addition,
pledged to move out among
the public in search of local
individuals prepared to
'\ contribute a small amount to
the account of a specific child
each week.
"Public involvement is
important id these things," said
Mr. Quant, "and we at
Citibank feel that we have a
l job not only to contribute
where we can, but to get others
to realise the importance of
supporting these causes."
Lending further support to
Citibank's goodwill Christmas
Stemwinder Trio, and the
Balloon Man, Sonny Vallee. Cy
sang everything from Silent
Night to the Obeah Man's
"Junkanoo" song, and Sonny
Vallee manufactured what
.* seemed a thousand different
animals through his balloon
manipulations.

MEAT PRICES CONTINUE TO SOAR IN U.S.
WASHINGTON (AP) A California housewife paused in disbelief at her_
supermarket meat counter, saw sirloin steak at $2.08 per pound, arid:
rebelled in the only way she could.
'I'm not going to buy any of this," said Mrs. Jean Walters, San.
Francisco. "I simply can't afford it. We're going to do with chicken anl-
fish."
Beef, the meat most preferred by Americans, sizzled to new price
records last year, and the heat will be turned up more. The cattle supply
simply is not keeping up with consumer craving.
Sirloin steak and even once-lowly hamburger now bring IS to 30 cents
per pound more than a year ago. Higher cattle prices are a big reason, but
so are rising middleman markups.
Clarence G. Adamy, President of the National Association of Food
Chains, was asked where meat prices are going. 'There is little question but
what they'll go up," Adams said. "We're praying rather than hoping that
they may plateau in February, but that's the most optimistic thing I cawn
say."
An Associated Press survey of supermarket prices and consumer reaction
shows that while many share Mrs. Walters' distaste for rising prices most
people pay whatever they must to get beef for part of their weekly menu.
Mrs. George Cannady, watching hamburger rise in Boston supermarkets
to 89 cents a pound, up 6 cents fiom a year ago, and chuck roast jump i4
cents, said she buys about the same cuts of meat but less of it.
A storekeeper in the Miami area said his hamburger was selling for 9
cents a pound ad sirlon for $1.39, both up about a dime per pound. ,o
BEEF PRICE IN U.K. ROSE 12 CENTS A POUND IN WEEK
LONDON (AP) Prime Minister Edward Heath Saturday ordered an
urgent probe into soaring meat prices that have put Britain's traditional ,
weekend joint of beef out of reach for thousands of families.
As housewives began a beef boycott and turned to cheaper cuts for
Sunday dinner, Heath asked three investigators to report on the prite
boom within days 'so that ihe public may he fully informed about this
matter.'
Best beef has risen four pence 12 cents a pound in the last week
after an upward spiral that began last November. A pound of sirloin steak.,
now costs up to 1.25 pounds three dollars a pound and is close to
continental levels. Only a few years ago, meat prices in Britain were hi i.,
those in Western Europe.
The rise in prices has embarrassed the government at the time ;of
Britain's entry into the Common Market after official promises that price
levels would take some time to reach continental heights. A-
Many butchers, also angered by meat Inflation, have blamed the t
prices on expanded beef exports to Britain's Common Market partners
They claim their own profit margins have remained static.
The price of home-bred beef has led to a boom in imported Argentinla i
meat selling at up to 30 pence 70 cents a pound cheaper.


SOPHIA LOREN HAS A SECOND SON
GENEVA (AP) Italian actress Sophia Loren gave birth to her seconMt
child and second son Saturday with father Carlo Ponti telling reportean-
he is p 'beautiful boy.'
A caesarian operation brought the 3.4 kilogram boy in the maternity
clinic of Geneva's cantonal hospital where the first born was also delivered .
by caesarian almost exactly five years ago.
The 3S-year-old star, childless for the first I years of her marriage with'
four miscarriages, was reported to be in fine health, as was the boy.
*We are delighted,' the S9-year-old Ponti said, adding that the name was
still to be decided upon. Both were said to have wished a sister for
first-born Carlo Jr., to be named Penelope.

Stingray 'clarifies' position over



their walkout of Crawfish Bowl game


MR. SPORTS EDITOR,
Now that the Stingray
Football Team has
been brought "guilty" by the
partisan officials of the
NPAFL, an open letter to the
press is needed to clarify tihe
situation.
Every sports media has
proclaimed that the Stingrays
were unsportsmanlikee" in
their actions, however I
believe that it is only right, as
a Stingray, to set the record
straight only on certain
matters at this time. the
others will come in due
course.
In the words of the "bias
reporter of the year" Ivan
Johnson of the Tribune "If
a sportsman can't accept a
referee's decision, then I-
shouldn't take part in
sports." Apparently the good
reporter hasn't been keeping
up with the times, so I shall
refresh his memory.
Undoubtedly Mr. Johnson
will agree that referees should
be consistent in their
decisions if similar events
occur.During a game between
the Jets and the Marlins. the
two teams began fighting and
both teams were attacking
each other on the field, the
result no players was
ejected from the game
However when a Stingray and
a Jet began to fight only the
Stingray is ejected and
according to one ol the
officials "Allan Ingraham was
the only person he saw
throwing the punches." ('an
you imagine Allan Ingraharn
punching Megon Knowles and
Megon not retaliating'?
In the words of Mr.
Johnson "The Stingrays were
not justified in walking off
the field" Since the
officials couldn't control the
game, then the game may
have ended in a free for all
brawl and if you don't believe
me ask any of the interior
linesmen if illegal tactics were
not being used. 1 guess Mr.
Johnson would have
preferred the Stingrays to
retaliate than switch.
The Stingray football team
agrees that the referees
should control the game,
however the referees have to
be consistent.
(1) For example the
"pre-controversy play"
occurred when a Stingray
defensive player recovered a
Jet fumble in the end zone
and the mere fact that the
.ball was downed in the end
zone is an automatic touch
back. However, the officials
allowed three Jet offensive
players to "pile on" and
attempt to take the ball away
from the Stingray defensive
player, and did not call a
penalty. Because of this,
Allan Ingraham went to the
aide of his defensive colleague
and this is when the fight
began. Notice, no piling on
penalty was issued against the
Jets.
(2) A similar type of play
occurred when only two
Stingrays piled Earl Bostwick
and took him out of bounds.
This was necessary because


on a play in the second
quarter, l'arl appeared to he
down and in fact gained an
additional 5 yards. Any
defensive man who has
played against I arl knows
that you have to really hold
'arl. However, a piling on
penalty was issued against the
Stingrays.
(3. Jelfl Williams, who
wears glasses, has observed
that the "Stingray fans off
tht' held has more control
over them than the coach,"
however, this same Jeff
Williams could not see the
interference by the Jets
defensive back I ony
Rahming on the Stinglay,
('live 0. J. Sands, when the
ball was in the air. Again no
penalty was issued against the
Jets. However, this same Jefl
Williams wants to issue a $5
penalty against all the
Stingrays.
The Stingrays came to play
football. which we did, but
we couldn't play the officials
at the same time
The above comments are
only a few of the glaring facts
behind the game which the
sports reporters refused to
acknowledge T'he officials
gave their report, the Jets
gave their report, why
weren't the Stingrays allowed
to state their case to the
media before they rushed
into print condemning the
Stingrays. And in the words
of a Jet player. "Very simple,
next year the Stingrays will
have to bring their own
referees."
What does this imply''
In anticipation that this
will be printed.
WILLIAM R. WALLACEt
Mr. Ivan Johnson replies to
Mr. Wallace's letter:
In reply to Mr. Wallace's
rather inaccurate letter there
are four points which I would
like to clarify:
(1) If the Stingrays wished
to protest against the
decisions of the referee then
they should have lodged an
official complaint after the
game to the NPAFL
Committee stating that in
their opinion the referee was
biased in his decisions
towards the Jets as any
mature group of men would
have done. Instead they chose
to storm off the field of play
like a group of scolded
children. Not only is such
behaviour 'unsportsmanlike'
but it is also childish.


(2) Allan Ingraham is
renowned for starting fights.
earlier in the NPAFL regular
season Ingraham was involved
in two similar incidences as
mentioned in Mr. Wallace's
letter. At the start of the
season he was involved in a
fight with Basil 'Barr' Davis
of the Jets the result of this
clash was that Davis was
elected from the game. On
December 3 of last year
Ingraham was ejected from
the game for fighting with
Megon Knowles of the Jets.
Taking these facts into
consideration it is not
surprising that the referee
ejected Ingraham from the
Crawfish Bowl game without
any hesitation because of his
past record. Mr. Wallace also
says or implies that Knowles
retaliated and for this he too
should have been ejected
from the game. This is not
true. Knowles tried to
retaliate but he was quickly
removed from the scene of
the incident by his teammates
before he could lash out at
Ingraham.
(3) In his letter Mr. Wallace
states that the piling on
penalty issued against the
Stingrays for tackling Earl
Bostwick out of bounds was
not justified. What Mr.
Wallace fails to mention is the
fact that the piling on penalty
was not issued against the
Stingrays because the two
Stingrays players carried
Bostwick out of bounds but
because after they had carried
Bostwick out of bounds
Melvin Burnside also hit
Bostwick when he was out of
bounds and being held by the
Stingray players. It was for
this reason that the piling on
penalty was awarded against
the Stingrays.
(4) Mr. Wallace concludes
by saying that the Stingrays
were not given a chance to
state their case to the media
before being condemned by
the press. What better person
than the Stingrays' captain
himself to express the feelings
of his team? When asked
about the behaviour of his
team Stingrays' captain
'Minky' Isaacs said, "The $5
dollar fine was undoubtedly
justified and my team should
never have left the field."
The Stingrays WERE
consulted before the press
'rushed into print
condemning the Stingrays,' as
Mr. Wallace claims.


STILL NO WORD OVER BASKETBALL


THERE IS STILL no
definite word on the fate of
the Bahamas Amateur
Basketball Association's
1972-'73 series which was
scheduled to resume on
January 3 but was cancelled
when no gymnasiums were
available.
The A. F. Adderley Gym,
which was used by the
Association for the first half
of the season, is presently
being used by students taking


the General Certificate exam.
The president of the
B.A.B.A., Mr. Vince
Ferguson, said that he
contacted the Ministry of
Education yesterday but was
told that no definite decision
has yet been reached to
vacate either the Pyfrom
Road Gym or the Eastern
Secondary School Gym
which presently houses
students of the proposed L.

CLAIMS 'S
EDITOR The Tribune
Dear Sir:
Ordinarily, I frown upon
letters to the Editor. However,
at this time I feel it necessary
to correct what I consider to
be a slur upon my character
and a misconception of the
esteem in which I hold the
Bahamas Amateur Basketball
Association.
I refer to a story carried in
the Tribune on 5 January
1973. Although completely
irrevelant to the report, my
presence and subsequent
happenings are included. In the
interestt of more complete,
efficient, and factual news
reporting, as well as in the
regard of any individual for his
personal reputation, I believe
that a more accurate
representation of the incident
is prescribed.
At theopening of the
meeting, the President of the
B.A.B.A. asked club
representatives to identify
themselves and stated that he
was afraid that all other
persons would be asked to
leave. At this time, I stated my
purpose in attending, said
purpose being to learn the
definition of an amateur
athlete, which definition had
been announced in the news
media as to be brought forth in
the meeting. (As an individual
directly involved with amateur
athletes every day, I feel a
definite obligation to maintain
an up-to-date knowledge of
details which may affect such
athletes.)
The implication in the
Tribune story, and one which I
deeply resent, is that I was
personally and directly asked
to leave, this is not the case.
The President reiterated the
statement that the meeting was
for club representatives only,
and that unfortunately I could
not remain, as I did not fall
into this category. Therefore, I
immediately left without
further comment or question. I
did so in deference to the
authority of the President of
the B.A.B.A., and because I am
aware of the rules of the
B.A.B.A., having been partially
responsible for the
establishment of these rules. I
did not wait to see it any otner
persons left, nor am I aware of
any statements or comments


LUR ON CHARACTER'


which may have been made by
anyone after my departure.
The Tribune story states
that I "sullenly left the room".
This is a damaging
misinterpretation of my
attitude and action. Not only is
the entire reference to me of
no relevance to the report, but
this statement in itself is
incorrect. I simply left
immediately and without
question or comment. From
this statement I can infer only
one of two things: (1) That the
Tribune reporter is so little
used to someone not
questioning authority that he
failed to recognize the
situation for what it was, or (2)
that thy Tribune reporter has
an inadequate command of the
language which resulted in an
unfortunate, disparaging,
embarrassing, and damaging
choice of words.
I feel that I deserve a
complete and immediate
apology. However, being a
more experienced sports and
feature writer than the author
of the Tribune article, I am
probably more aware that a
retraction, correction, or
apology can never undo the
damage done by an original
story, especially to an
individual such as myself in a
public position.
As a footnote, I would like


to point out that although the
meeting in question was open
only to club representatives,
the author of the Tribune
article remained in attendance,
despite the fact that he is
neither a player, coach, or
official of the B.A.B.A.
In order to correct what I
believe to be a misrepresentat-
ion of facts because what
should have been an objective
report retained some measure
of opinionated conjecture, I
request that this letter be
printed in full.
I thank you for this
opportunity to show the need
for factual reporting to be
complete and strictly factual.
GERALD I. HARPER JR.


(We are happy to publish
Mr. Harper's letter as he
requests, but fail to see how
he can claim the reference
to his presence there as
"completely irrelevant"
when he admits himself he
attended the meeting "to
learn the definition of an
amateur athlete, which
definition had been
announced in the news
media as to be brought
forth at the meeting."
