THOUSANDS of dollars worth of personal effects,
groceries and cash were lost this morning when fire
destroyed the mailboat m.v. Church Bay at Potters Cay
dock just hours before she was to sail on her weekly trip
to Cat Island.
The Church Bay was loaded
with groceries for Cat
Islanders, and belongings of
passengers when fire broke ; ?'
in her engine room shory
after 10 a.m. There was no
mail on board at the time.
From 20 to 30 passengers
were on the boat, which should
have sailed for Cat Island on
Wednesday but was
rescheduled to leave at noon
today. Among the passengers
were Mr. and Mrs. Jochen
Wendt of West Germany, who
were going to Cat Island to
inspect property they had
The fire, which completely
destroyed the boat, broke out
while engineers from Bahamas
tractor and Equipmen; Ltd.'
were doing a repair job on the
boat's engines. One of the men
said that they were using a
booster to start the large diesel
engine. The engine is reported
to have started two or three
times, but backfired and
almost immediately burst into
The boat's fire fighting
equipment was not adequate to
contain the large blaze, he said,
and the men had to run.
Miss Sarah E. Seymour, a
Ministry of Education and
Culture teacher at the Orange
Creek, Cat Island public
school, was returning to the
island with her neighbours,
Mrs. Viola Smith, her sons
Glenfbrd and Wendell, and
Mrs. Hannah Poitier and her
three young children.
With tears in her eyes Miss
Seymour recalled: "The fire
started down in the engine
room. I started to go into the
bathroom and one of the men
working on .the engine came
running out saying 'Go, go'. He
was trying to get out from
down in the engine hole. Then,
when I looked, I saw the fire."
She said she was unable to
save any of her belongings. She
ran back to the deck and
jumped down onto the dock.
"I can't tell you the value of
my belongings because I also
had money. I had over
$1,000 to take back home to
Orange Creek. My mother is
depending on me for support.
It was my entire savings. My
mother is a cripple and I teach
at the public school."
She said she was also
travelling with a considerable
amount of goods, purchased
for neighbours and members of
her family. Her sister, Charlotte
Rolle, who lives at Grand
Bahama had also suffered "a
bad fire last month," she said.
"I had bedding, a mattress.
and clothes for my sister and
now they are all gone. All of
the food I was carrying home
for my mother to put in her
shop is on that boat."
Mr. and Mrs. Wendt were the
only passengers who said they
were able to save anything.
They said they lost a couple
hundred dollars worth of their

boat. They lost the provisions
that they had bought to use
while at Cat Island.
The Wendts said they did
not "see the captain
anywhere" at the time of the
fire. Neither did they know his
Crewman Herbert Stevens
stood nearby with tears in his
eyes. He had been with the
engineers when fire broke out.
He was speechless. It is
understood that the boat had
no "official captain."
Mrs. Muriel Hart, also a
passenger who lost everything,
was travelling with her
grandson Uriah, 14. They were
to leave the boat at Old Bight.
Among their losses were a
living room suite valued at
$500 and other furniture
valued at "about $1,300 to
$1,400." She was also carrying
goods for her neighbours at Cat
Island from their family and
friends in Nassau.
The fire raged within the
vessel for an hour before it was
brought under control by
members of the Fire
The tug Mako II, which
arrived about half an hour after
the fire department, eventually
rammed and sank the boat.
The boat's supply of deisel
fuel was stored in 55-gallon
canisters at the bow.
Eight days ago the Church
Bay was disabled at sea while
on a trip from Cat Island to
Nassau. She had engine trouble
at the time. She is recently out
of drydock at Abaco.
The 150-foot long boat has
been plagued with engine
trouble since the middle of
February. She is to be replaced
on her weekly Cat Island run
by the Sea Salvor Express.
Among the large crowd
drawn by the fire to Potters
Cay was former MP for

WASHINGTON (AP)- U.S. District Court Judge John Sirica will decide
today whether he will accept a guilty plea from former White House
consultant E. Howard Hunt. Hunt entered a plea of guilty yesterday to
three charges growing out of the break-in at Democratic national
headquarters better known as the Watergate Affair.
The former C.I.A. pleaded guilty to charges of conspiracy, burglary and
wire-tapping. Lawyers for the six men charged with Hunt have declined to
my what effect his plea will have on their clients. The prosecutor said
there was no deal made with Hunt and that he remains subject to call
before a grand jury to answer questions about others who might be
involved in the break-in.

FUEL SHORTAGE THREATENS FLIGHT CANCELLATIONS
NEW YORK, Jan. 10 (AP)- At New York's Kennedy International
Airport major airlines rationed their jet fuel Tuesday and the shortage
threatened possible flight cancellations.
In Denver, Colorado high schools have been closed for a week due to a
scarcity of heating fuel. Some American railroads have begun running their
trains at reduced speed to economize fuel. In the mid-west crops might go

For the United States winter has arrived and the energy crisis is here.
The nation no longer produces enough fuel for its own needs and is
growing ever more dependent on foreign supplies of fuels, especially oil,
which is subject to import quotas.
The government has relaxed quota restrictions but this, the New York
Times said in an editorial Wednesday, is "a stopgap relief measure ... the
nation is still awaiting the national energy policy promised by White House
aides for months."
In Washington Interior Secretary Rogers Morton told a Senate

a supplement to the present system of allocations."
U.S. ARMY TO ANNOUNCE REORGANIZATION PLANS
WASHINGTON (AP)- The army plans to announce today details of its
reorganization plan, which is aimed at streamlining its command structure
for the first time in eleven years. The plan is aimed at strengthening army
readiness and efficiency, trimming manpower and saving an estimated I 50
million to 200 million dollars a year.
Advance indications point to a reduction of between ten-thousand and
IS-thousand military and civilian personnel. No bases around the country
will be closed, but some will be reduced in scope. It also will result, among
other things, in a ten per cent reduction of the army staff at the Pentagon
and a small cut in the number of generals..

MRS. BOGGS WILL OFFER FOR HUSBAND'S HOUSE SEAT
NEW ORLEANS, LA (AP)- A source close to the family of Rep. Hale

the White House said.
No longer will large businesses
and labor unions have to get prior
government approval for wage or
price hikes except in "special
problem areas" which Nixon listed
as food processing and retailing,
and the health industry.
The President also continued the
present system of looser mandatory
controls over construction wage
increases and said the present
voluntary effort to keep interest
rates down would stay in effect.
But for those industries and
unions freed Thursday from
mandatory controls, the
government retains the right to
move in with stiff action to roll
back unreasonable increases.
Nixon said in a message to
Congress that his goal is to reduce
the inflation rate to 2.5 per cent or
less by the end of 1973. He said his
90-day Pha:e I wage-price freeze
and his Phase 2 mandatory controls
had cut the inflation rate by nearly
half to about 3.5 per cent.
All other firms will be free of
reporting or record-keeping
As for the wage side of the new
system, employee units of 5,000 or
more will be required to file reports
with the Cost of Living Council on
wage rate changes, and all employee
units of 1,000 or more will be
required to keep records. Smaller
units face no requirements.
But with the changes, the "Cost
of Living Council reserves the
authority to establish mandatory
standards where that is necessary to
assure that future action in a

Peace without honour
By ETIENNE DUPUCH
AMERICA will never be a great nation in the ordinarily
accepted meaning of the word.
Americans are a fine people .... I love them as individuals ....
but as a nation they lack the stomach for greatness.
Because they are a fine people they have a natural aversion to
This is a commendable human quality as far as it goes. But
beyond a certain point it is a suicidal sentiment in a warlike world
that appears to be moving towards the Anti-Christ.
Let us look back to the first world war.
From the moment Kaiser Wilhelm's legions crossed the borders
of Belgium every nation in the world realized that human
freedom was at stake.
America deplored the action with empty words but stood aloof
until she was forced into the conflict by a U-boat attack on the
American passenger ship Lusitania with a heavy loss of American
The same was true of Mussolini's rape of Ethiopia. No one
went to the aid of this tiny country. It was thrown to the mad
wolves. I wrote in this column at the time: "This means war".
The same was true of the second world war. No one in Europe,
except the Germans under the leadership of Adolf Hitler, wanted
Britain and France kept turning away from constant
provocation to war. Because of their hestancy Russia became
aligned with Germany. Japan and Italy, allies of Britain and
France in the first world war,joined forces with Germany.
SThe early stages of this conflict produced a Quisling. Under the
circumstances, Quisling could hardly be blamed for making
friends with an enemy against whom there had been no resistance
by those whose duty it was to resist from the very start. But
Quisling was stood up against a wall and shot as a traitor. Who
was the real traitor in the world during this period of unchecked
The time came when Britain and France realized that they had
no other choice than war. Further delay would have meant that
they would have all been picked off and swallowed up one by one
by the German monster.
By the time they finally entered the war the Germans were so
.strong that mighty France and other Western European nations
were crushed in a short time and Great Britain was on the ropes.
This situation produced the tragedy of Marshal Petain, France's
hero in the first world war, and Pierre Laval, who formed the
Vichy government to save France from complete destruction by
I have always been convinced that Vichy was a good thing for
the Allies and that Petain helped Britain through the back door. I
have always felt great sympathy for these two men. After the war
Laval was shot as a traitor and Petain was imprisoned in a castle
for the rest of his life.
America's place was in the front line with Britain in the early
days of this titanic struggle for human freedom. But she
'pussy-footed until Japan struck at Pearl Harbour. Once again she
was left no choice but to enter the war.
A fact America should have realized by now is that any show
of weakness or indecision encourages aggression.
Way back in the 1500's Robert Burton recorded that "the
Commonwealth of Venice in their Armoury have this inscription,
'Happy is that city which in time of peace thinks of war',".
Another wise piece of advice by an early writer is: "In time of
peace prepare for war".
It is all very well to wish for peace .... to desire peace .... even
to pray for peace .... all these things, especially prayer are
important .... but all history shows that peace comes through
strength. Weakness and indecision is the handmaiden of war.
The conditions people in the Bahamas face today come
through indecision, weakness, false hopes, a selfish desire for
self-preservation by people who could have checked the rot ....
but who were afraid to act .... and sought compromise with evil
.... at a time when firm, united action by supposedly responsible
elements in the colony could have produced a sane Government.
S Now these pussy-footing people are concerned .... but it is too
late. The monster is in a position to gobble them all up one by
one .... and he is doing exactly that daily.
1 A convincing example of the aggressor's attitude to any show
4c weakness was displayed by Hitler when he described the
British as "a decadent race". He was confident that Britain would
not enter the second world war. This contempt for the British
was the result of weakness shown by King Edward VIII (Duke of
Windsor) when he walked out on his duty to the greatest Empire
in history for love of a twice-divorced woman, and the behaviour
of the Oxford Union and the Cliveden set, young members of
Britain's ruling families, who declared that they would not fight
in another war.
They did fight .... and they fought gallantly .... when war came.
But the damage had already been done.
Hitler would never have started a war if he knew that Britain
ad America would have been drawn into the conflict. He figured
conquering the world by a policy of attrition.
SThis is exactly what the Communists are doing today.
After the war had been won by the Allies America threw all
her moral and financial resources into rebuilding Germany and
Japan. Look at these countries today .... and where is America?
Tragic .... don't you think?
Britain, America's natural ally, was neglected. There would be
peace in the world today with a strong Britain and a strong
America as allies. But no. America not only neglected Britain but
she set out in a determined effort to dismember the British
Empire. She seemed to feel that a handful of people on any racl
anywhere in the world had a right to be independent. With thi!
policy she pressured Britain into breaking up the Empire and
setting her people "free" .... even to desert the many millions of
British people who were proud of their British heritage and
wanted to live and die as British subjects.
You cannot break up an Empire that it took centuries to build
in a half century without causing serious dislocations in the world
The day U.S. Foreign Secretary John Foster Dulles stood up
with the Russian Ambassador in the U.N. and condemned British
colonialism in the Suez affair .... that was the end.
By contrast, America was embarrassingly inactive in the rape of
Hungary by Russia and of later Russian suppression of freedom in
Poland and Czechoslovakia.
General MacArthur, a great American military leader, could
have won the Korean war and checked the advance of Communist
aggression in the Far East for a long time. But no. Communist
propaganda in America forced President Truman to dismiss this
outstanding military leader.
My wife and I visited Korea a few years ago. We penetrated to
the border of No Man's Land in Panmunjom where an uneasy
peace exists. Just before our visit America suffered humiliation at
the hands of tiny Korea in the Pueblo affair.
And then came Viet Nam.
The Nhu family had the situation under control in Southern
Viet Nam. But the Nhus were Roman Catholics. And
Communist-inspired propaganda, through the agency of fanatical
Buddhist priests, caused America to go soft and sentimental.
In desperation Madam Nhu went to America to warn the
American Government and people of the dangers that lay
ahead. Madam Nhu was not only ignored, she was practically
driven out of the country. Encouraged by these signs of American
weakness, the Nhu regime was overthrown in a military coup and
the family was assassinated. Madam Nhu escaped only because
she was out of the country.
Up to that time America's role in the Viet Nam war was
comparatively small. After this tragedy America's involvement
escalated until it became a major war.
America has the power to win this war. But her greatest enemy
is on the home front. Leaders in the church, in Congress, in the
press, in industry, men and women in the streets, have been
hamstringing the gallant boys at the front by their cries for peace
at any price. During my visit to Korea I found that American
soldiers were prepared to fight but they were being discouraged
by behaviour of Americans in America.
President Nixon wants peace. He got the enemy to the
negotiating table in Paris. But they made no progress because of
the encouragement the enemy has received from do-gooders in
America. Finally President Nixon did what he should have done
years ago .... he launched all-out war on the enemy. Only then
were they ready seriously to talk peace. Just before the
Presidential elections in November peace seemed imminent. But
Senator McGovern, the Democratic presidential candidate,
campaigned on a peace-at-any-price platform. And the
Communist peace negotiators stiffened. Once again the peace
effort failed. The negotiations broke off.
America struck again recently and do-gooders all over the
world shouted protests. Once again the peace negotiations were
resumed. Now it has reached the stage in the U.S. where the
Democrats in Congress are moving with their majority vote to cut
off all supplies to the President for the war effort.
It now looks as though the Communists will win this war ....
the U.S. Congress and people all over America who refuse to
recognize that wars are fought to be won .... and that compromise
is only a postponement for a bigger and more devastating war
later on .... will win it for them.
In the meantime American foreign policy on colonialism has
packed the U.N. with representatives of small, irresponsible states
and has reduced this supposedly peace-making body to a
Communist propaganda machine.
As a result America is-slowly being encircled by governments
on small islands that could be a menace to her own security.
Recently the Big Four in this area .... Guyana, Trinidad and
Tobago, Barbados and Jamaica have come together to establish
friendly relations with Castro's Cuba and China.
When America expressed disapproval of this move .... the tiny
government of Barbados told her to mind her own cotton-picking
business .... in short, to go to hell!
Cuba is another case of American weakness and indecision
when faced with conflict. The Bay of Pigs. I need say no more!
And I am sure that Washington is now jittery over the fact
that the Bahamas, right on America's front doorstep, will be
independent in July.
Ironically, it was American money and propaganda in the
American press that gave the Pindling Government the victory
they won in 1967!
Once again Uncle Sam will be held up to ransom .... once again
the old boy may squirm but he will pay .... and pay .... and pay
.... and in the end he will receive a swift kick in his pants. Still he
doesn't seem to learn anything from experience.
I am now convinced that there will be another great war. This
war will be produced by the weakness and indecision of the
Western powers, especially the U.S., as was the case with the
second world war.
This time America will fight. She will have to fight because it is
possible that the next war will be fought on American soil.
I hope she wins this war, but, alas, the record of history shows
that a divided nation is always destroyed from within.

Late last month, USDA reported
farm prices went up 5 per cent, the
sharpest one-month gain since
1946. The December increase in
farm wholesale prices was 6.8 per
cent, the most since 1947.
Poor harvest weather was a big
factor last fall when it cut the
normal orderly flow of crops to
market, Paarlberg said. Also,
farmers have been turning out
fewer hogs while consumer demand
for meat has been climbing.
Farm prices are not subject to
government price control, but iew
consumer pressure is being put on
the White House for action.
"I think the issue will heat up
again, unfortunately," Paarlberg
said. "But it would be hurtful to
the public in the long run."

farmers would lose incentive to

Badger, who works with price

said that historically retailers tend
to absorb part of the rise in
wholesale prices initially but then
usually wind up passing part of the

their cost on an annual basis. The

(1) A car that parks easily, yet will accommodate 5 people
(2) Reasonable in price, but equipped with automatic transmission.
(3) Superb riding qualities and pleasing styling
(4) Good performance, but economical to operate
with automatic transmission
This incredible roominess, within a car that's small enough to make town parking a
pleasure, is one reason why the 1300 range has grown into the biggest success story in the
history of British motoring.
Transverse engines, front-wheel drive and Hydrolastic suspension. Time and over two

DEAR ABBY: My husband falls into bed dead tired
without even kissing me goodnight. Then about 4 o'clock
in the morning he wakes me up and forces himself on me
without saying a word. After he has satisfied himself he
turns over and goes to sleep. All the while I am lying there
like a statue. Would you call this statutory rape?
CURIOUS IN FRISCO
DEAR CURIOUS: No. It's more like STATIONARY
DEAR ABBY: In one of your columns you told a girl It
was all right for her to smile and wave at truck drivers.
Thanks a lot! My husband is a truck driver and all he
needs is good looking girls waving and smiling at him all
day. He's a good-looking guy, and it doesn't take much to
turn him on, and I'd just as soon he didn't make any new
friends on his job. Not all truck drivers are alike, but I
know my husband better than you do, so watch it, will you,
Abby? THELMA IN PASSAIC
DEAR THELMA: I'll watch It, Thelma.
DEAR ABBY: Never thought I'd be writing to Dear
Abby, but after reading the letter from that young girl who
asked if it was okay to smile and wave at truck drivers, I
had to put in my 2 cents' worth.
I've been married to a truck driver for 19 years.
There's not a better husband and father. It's an honorable
position and I'm proud of him. Maybe most people aren't
aware of this, but 70 per cent of the food they eat and the
clothes they wear are delivered by trucks.
If a lady is stranded on the highway, a truck driver
will be the first to stop and help her. And speaking of being
a lady, my husband stopped to help a couple of so-called
"ladies," and they robbed him of all his money.
ALL EINTRII.S stating

London generall Certificate of
Education Examination to be
held in Nassau during June of
1973. should he sent to the

So tell that gal to keep smiling. I hope she smiles at
my truck driver someday, for it's a lonely job and he can
use a smile along the way. KANSAS WIFE
DEAR ABBY: I am a widow, 67, living alone in a one-
bedroom apartment. The only living relative I have is a
sister. Gertrude is 73, married and very well-to-do. She has
been fighting with her husband Sam, who is 75, for as long
as I can remember.
For the past year, Gertrude has been coming here in a
taxi at all hours of the night asking if she can sleep in the
other twin bed because she and Sam had another fight.
Naturally, I let her stay. Sometimes she spends two nights
with me until she's sure Sam has cooled off.
Now Sam calls accusing me of "breaking up his
home." He says if I didn't let his wife come here to sleep
she would stay home where she belongs. The old fool
should know that if I didn't let her sleep here she could go
to. a hntl Cha .rd M lnt f . nwu
Sam says if I let Gertrude sleep here one more night he
will cut me out of his will, and his wife's wil, too. Can th
do that? Please advise me. LAUDERDALE LADY
DEAR LADY: Tell Sam that when your sister sws up
at your door to spend the night witt you, you wlW aS
refuse to let her in. He can cut yne out of his wl If th
wants to, but he can't cut you out of his wife's.

ONASSIS IN OIL-TRANSPORTATION TALKS
LONDON (AP)- Shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis Thursday was
reported by aides ending a series of business consultations with major oil
Onassis flew in Tuesday evening and is accompanied by his son
Alexander from his first marriage. He plans to return to Paris Friday
Aides said Onassis met with directors of Shell, the Anglo-Dutch oil
group, and today was meeting with executives of British Petroleum (BP)-

companies for Onassis group tankers.

country residence at Sutton Place near Guildford Wednesday.
SUIT AGAINST MAP PUBLISHING CO.
TUCSON, ARIZONA (AP)- Two widows have filed a 2 million dollar
suit in Superior Court claiming a faulty map caused the deaths of their
husbands in a 1971 airplane crash near Manila, Philippines.
Sylvia J. Sisk of Tuscon and Rosalie Rhemann of Austin, Texas, alleged
in the suit filed Wedensday that a map published by Jepperson and Co. of
Colorado failed to note the presence of 3,173-foot Mt. Kamunay on the
landing approach, where the plane crashed.
The suit said that Melvin G. Sisk and Thomas E. Rhemann were flight
crew members of the Pan American Airways Boeing 707 when it crashed
July 25, 1971.
The widows alleged that omission of the peak from the map rendered it
"defective and unreasonably dangerous for its anticipated use."
PIETA NOW FULLY RESTORED'.
VATICAN CITY (AP)- Michelangelo's Pieta will go on public display
again in St. Peter's Basilica at the end of February, the Vatican said today.
The white marble statue, the only work signed by Michelangelo, was
seriously damaged May 21 by a hammer-wielding Australian geologist.
Laszlo Toth, 34. The vandal broke off the madonna's left arm, dented her
veil and chipped the left side of her face.
Brazilian-born Prof. Deoclecio Redig De Campos, Director of the-
Vatican museums, said during a press showing that it took 10 technicians
five months to restore the work.
The statue 6 feet 7 in height and weighing 6,700 pounds will be
protected in St. Peter's Chapel by a glass shield.

SOVIETS RESENT RELIGIOUS BROADCASTS
MOSCOW (AP)- The Soviet Union displayed concern today that
western radio broadcasts with religious themes are having some effect ons
An article in the trade union newspaper Trud attacked the broadcasts as
"purposeful propaganda of militant anti-communists striving to undermine
socialism from within."
"The voices of religious radio advocates cease neither day nor nighhts

Seven other applications are currently pending or being processed by the.

GENERAL TENDENCIES: This is one of those
days when you should be able to combine your
mentality and your intuitions, so that you can see clearly how,
why and when to put in motion a new course of action which
can bring to you the results vital to your welfare.
ARIES (Mar. 21 to Apr. 19) A good day to talk over with
experts the ideas you have for getting ahead much faster in the
future First make sure you are well dressed and feeling fine,
and then make a fine impression on others.
TAURUS (Apr. 20 to May 20) Relax and think over how to
make your position in life a more affluent and impressive one.
Then get busy obtaining the data you need. A new associate
can be most helpful in aiding you to advance.

handling daily responsibilities more wisely and efficiently so
you have greater profit. Show more affection for mate and get
better results. The evening can be a fine one.

mood to handle a civic matter and this can lead to very fine
things, so get busy. Take care of an important business matter
without fail, even if it means foregoing fun.
LEO (July 22 to Aug. 21) Search for a better system of
operating so that you can become more successful and attain
greater income. Being more helpful to fellow workers brings
you their aid willingly and quickly. Relax tonight.
VIRGO (Aug. 22 to Sept. 22) You can get all those
responsibilities handled well and early in the day so that you
can later go out to the amusements that appeal to you. Use
your intuition and please good friends and mate.

PISCES (Feb. 20 to Mar. 20) You have an opportunity to
add to your present abundance and should not procrastinate

good advice. Avoid one who slows you down.
IF YOUR CHILD IS BORN TODAY he or she will be
one of those delightful young people who not only has fine
ideas but is practical. The combination of the two can make
for great success here, provided there is the privilege of a good
education accorded your clever progeny, which should be
planned early. Give opportunity to have fun, so that there will
be a nicely balanced individual in this chart.

champion tells his
story in The Tribune
By Joe Frazier
World helaiv weight champion
KINGSTON, JAMAICA (AP) I have been trying to get
something off my chest for some time and although I have been
quoted on the subject several times, my message doesn't seem to
be getting through. It seems as though there is always at least one
questioner asking me why I am fighting George Foreman in
Kingston, Jamaica, on January 22nd, instead of Cassius Clay.
I have always given the same
answer and I hCiieLv it is ;
logical nme. I tc rsiulder '(; )rge
l:Forerman the No. I contender
for ni\ hiieavr weriht title.
(aissius Clay was the No. I
contender anid cleated him.
1 had him on the deck and I
won ia unranlIIlous decision over
hiir. Just because ('lay keeps
cellng that lie was robbed
lcsn't alter tlie fact. It was a
clear cut victory and (Clay had
his shot as the No. I
I foreman was ranked right
behind Clay. 'lime moves on
and now it is foreman's chance
and I don't think anybody can
say he doesn't rate it.
A former Olympic champion
like myself. (;eorge is
undefeated as a professional
with a sensational knockout
record. lHe'll have the edge on
me in weight, reach and height
and he is five years younger
than I am.
WHY ANY DOUBT?
Now take a big, strong
young guy like Foreman and
put all these components
together, his physical
proportions, his age and his
fine record. Why should there
be any doubt why I consider
him the No. I contender for
I know I have been criticized
since the Clay fight for fighting
unworthy opponents, but they
were the only ones I could get
to fight me until Foreman
agreed to this match. I would
have fought Clay any place,
any time, if some promoter
had come up with my price. I
have a price just like Clay, who
won't take a match unless he
gets his price.
It isthe tradition in the fight
business for the champ to get
the champion's end and the
challenger to get the
challenger's end. I certainly
haven't been ducking (lay. lie
is insisting on the same money
I get and that is what is making
it difficult to make the match.
A REAL THREAT
Now, for the time being, I
would like to forget about
(lay. Foreman presents enough
of a problem. lie's the one I
am in training for and he's the
one who is a real threat to my
title, maybe more than Clay. I
am not going to think about
Clay until maybe the night of
the fight in Jamaica on January
And the only reason I will
be giving him a thought is
because 1 know that i will have
to beat Foreman to make that
rematch with Clay-and I don't
intend letting Foreman stand
in the way of that one.

PATAUDI BACK IN
INDIAN TEST TEAM
MADRAS, INDIA, JAN. 11
(AP)-With "Tiger Pataudi" in the
batting lineup, India hopes for a
convincing win over England in the
.nird Cricket Test starting here
India lost the First Test on
Christmas Day in Delhi by six
\wickets, and won the Second in
Calcutta by only 28 runs. There
were batting weaknesses and a lack
of fast howlers.
The former Nawab enters the
side for the first time in the Madras
Test, chosen for his spectacular
century in Bangalore in a zone
match against the MCC tourists.
Pataudi has played most of his
cricket in England and the MCC
bowlers do not frighten him.
In the past 10 years, India has
won two, lost one and drawn one
of the four Tests against MCC
played in Madras, and the ground
saw India's first defeat of MCC -
by an innings and eight runs. The
MCC captain then was Donald Carr,
now the manager of MCC.
Carr, born in Bangalore, has
made changes in his side to face
India's spinners who find the
Madras wicket to their liking.
