SEARCH FOR BEA PLANE CONTINUES
GLASGOW, SCOTLAND (AP)- A land and air search began for a
British European Airways Viscount airliner in the Scottish Highlands
Friday after radio contact with the plane was lost during a test flight.
The turboprop airliner took off from Glasgow Airport with two pilots
and two engineers aboard.
A Royal Navy helicopter which joined the search was forced to return to
the airport because of driving snow and poor visibility. Royal air force
rescue teams were also called out.
The search for the plane is concentrated in a mountainous region of
AGNEWS VISIT COINCIDES WITH CEASE-FIRE SIGNING
NEW YORK (AP)- Columbia Broadcasting System (CBS) radio said
Friday that Vice President Spiro Agnew is scheduled to arrive in Saigon
Jan. 28 for a visit apparently intended "to coincide closely with the signing
or at lest the initialing of a Vietnam cease-fire agreement."
Don Webster, acting CBS Bureau chief in Saigon, said President Nguyen
Van Thieu of South Vietnam received a letter from President Nixon on
Thursday informing him of Agnew's plans.
The letter was delivered by U.S. Ambassador E1lsworth Bunker, the
network reported, and contained the following passage from Nixon to
Thieu: "We have been together in war, let's be together in peace."
The report came from reliable sources in Saigon, CBS said.

known and suspected enemy strongholds throughout the country Friday as
part of a three-levelled campaign to bolster Saigon's position for a

LAUNCHING OF SKYLAB DELAYED
CAPE KENNEDY' Jan. 20 (AP) The launch of America's first space
station, SKYLAB, has been postponed from April 30 until "sometime in
May" because of delays in checking out the complex new vehicle.
In making the announcement Friday, the National Aeronautics and
Space Administration said a firm launch date would not be set until late
March after testing has been completed on the station, which is as big as a
A NASA spokesman said the test programme here is about two weeks
behind schedule. One source indicated the launch would be postponed at
least two weeks and possibly longer.
Once ready, the two-storey skylab is to be launched unmanned into
orbit 270 miles high by a Saturn S rocket. The next day, a smaller Saturn
SB rocket is to launch three astronauts in a modified Apollo moonship to
rendezvous with the laboratory.
The astronauts Charles Conrad Jr., Paul J. Weitz and Dr. Joseph P.
Kerwin are to remain aboard 28 days to conduct scientific, engineering
and medical experiments.
Kerwin is a medical doctor who will be able to make on-the-spot
physical examinations, take blood samples and perform other medical tests
to help determine how well man can function during prolonged space
Later this year, two more three-man crews will be rocketed to the same
skylab station. Each team will remain in orbit for 56 days.
ATTEMPT TO ASSASSINATE U.K. MINISTER
BELFAST, Jan. 20 (AP)- British troops patroling Northern Ireland's
western border were shot at eight times from the Irish Republic side Friday
night, the army reported.
A spokesman said some 45 shots were fired across the border from
Donegal into County Londonderry near Strabane. He said British patrols
returned the fire with an unspecified "small rfbmber of rounds" and
reported no casualties.
In Belfast, the Rightist Protestant Vanguard Movement claimed Irish
Republican Army guerrillas tried to assassinate William Van Staubenzee,
Britain's Minister of State for Northern Ireland.
TUC TOTALLY OPPOSES ANTI-INFLATION MEASURES
LONDON (AP)- The Trades Union Congress, the voice of Britain's
organized labour, moved Friday toward total opposition to the
government's latest anti-Inflation measures.
The Congress economic committee recommended a boycott of boards
being set up by Prime Minister Edward Heath's government to restrict pay
and price increases. Committee recommendations normally are accepted.
The union group represents about 10 million British workers and its
co-operation is considered essential to make Heath's inflation curbs work.
Alan Filher, a member of the committee, said members expressed
support for action by organized labour against the Heath package but not
fora general strike. The committee said the unions should formulate an
alternative policy and decide what steps should be taken to fight the
Heath's programme, announced Wednesday, included sharp controls on
prices, incomes, dividends and profits for the next year and possibly three
years or more. Labour leaders condemned the proposals, which are
designed to follow a I50-day pay and price freeze, as "unfair and

WASHINGTON (AP) Here is the text of U.S. President M. Nixon's second inaugural addreu:
WHEN WE MET here
four years ago, America
was bleak in spirit,
depressed by the prospect of
seemingly endless war abroad and
of destructive conflict at home.
As we meet here today, we stand
on the threshold of a new era of
peace in the world.
The central question before us is:
How shall we use that peace?
Let us resolve that this era we are
about to enter will not be what
other postwar periods have been: a
time of retreat and isolation that
leads to stagnation at home and
invites new danger abroad.
Let us resolve that this will be
what it can become: a time of great
responsibilities greatly borne, in
which we renew the spirit and the
promise of America for the start of
our third century as a nation.
This past year saw far-reaching
results from our new policies for
peace. By continuing to revitalize
our traditional friendships, and by
our missions to Peking and
Moscow, we were able to establish
the base for a new and more
durable pattern of relationships
among the nations of the world.
SAIGON, JAN. 20 (AP) Gen.
Alexander M. Haig Jr. held a final
meeting with President Ngyuen van
Thieu today on a draft peace
agreement which could end more
than a decade of American military
intervention in Southeast Asia.
lHaig departed for Washington
after the meeting to report to
President Nixon on South
Vietnam reaction to the draft
The United States North
Vietnam and South Vietnam
apparently agree in principle on the
major issues, including a cease-fire
and the return of prisoners.
"We are quite close to a
conclusion," foreign minister Tran
van Lam of South Vietnam told
Meetings were held in Paris
Friday by technical experts of the
United States and North Vietnam.
They conferred for the fifth
consecutive day as hopes for a
speedy end to the Vietnam War
gained new momentum.
The technical experts were
working on nuts-and-bolts annexes
to the main agreement, figuring
out ways to apply the principles
negotiated by Henry A. Kissinger
and Le Duc Tho, the chief North
Vietnamese peace negotiator.
Kissinger, Nixon's top foreign
policy aide, is due in Paris on
Tuesday to continue his top-level
talks with Tho. Their secret
discussions are reported to have
produced tentative agreement on
the shape of the main peace accord,
with Saigon still uneasy about some
"I cannot tell you the time and
the date because we are still asking
for some clarifications and some
points are points of concern to our
government," Lam said.
"I am not a prophet, so I don't
want to guess about the date of a
cease-fire. The only thing that I
could say is that we are very close.
"I am neither optimistic nor
pessimistic. The problem is we
would like to have the maximum
protection of our national interests.
There are many points to be
clarified in the agreement and we
want those points to be explained."
Lam's remarks were echoed
Friday night by the official Saigon
government radio, which declared:
"The war is now like dying rain
... this is the time when peace is like
flowers blooming on the lips of
people. But as our foreign minister
said, we are not optimistic and
there are no grounds for pessimism
Lam said Haig was making the
awing back to Saigon from Bangkok
to "exchange views" with Thieu
after two days of consultations
with the leaders of Cambodia, Laos
and Thailand. Haig had conferred
with Thieu for 2i hours Tuesday
and again for an hour Wednesday
night before moving on to the other
While Haig was gone, Thieu held
extensive meetings with his national
security council on the earlier
conferences between himself and
the Washington emissary. Now that
Thieu has carefully studied the
revised draft peace treaty and its
instruments, he is reported ready to
give Haig his up-to-date views on
the proposals. Thieu's reaction has
been reported moderate so far, and
Lam's remarks seemed to indicate
that whatever the remaining issues,
it is hoped they can be quickly

The peace we seek in the world is
not the flimsy peace which is
merely an interlude between wars,
but a peace which can endure for
generations to come.
It is important that we
understand both the necessity and
the limitations of America's role in
maintaining that peace.
Unless we in America work to
preserve the peace, there will be no
Unless we in America work to
preserve freedom, there will be no
But let us clearly understand the
new nature of America's role, as a
result of the new policies we have
adopted over the past four years.
We shall respect our treaty
We shall support vigorously the
principle that no country has the
right to impose its will or its rule on
another by force.
We shall continue, in this era of
negotiation, to work for .the
limitation of nuclear arms, and to
reduce the danger of confrontation
between the great powers.
We shall do our share in
defending peace and freedom in the
world. But we shall expect others
to do their share.
The time has passed when
America will make every other
nation's conflict our own, or make
every other nation's future our
responsibility, or presume to tell
the people of other nations how to
manage their own affairs.
Just as we respect the right of
each nation to determine its own
future, we also recognize the
responsibility of each nation to
secure its own future.
Just as America's role is
indispensable in preserving the
world's peace, so is each nation's
role indispensable in preserving its
Together with the rest of the
world, let us resolve to move
forward from the beginnings we
have made. Let us continue to bring
down the walls of hostility which
have divided the world, and to
build in their place bridges of
understanding so that despite
profound differences between
systems of government, the people
of the world can be friends.
Let us build a structure of peace
in the world in which the weak are
as safe as the strong in which
each respects the right of the other
to live by a different system in
which those who would influence
others will do so by the strength of
their ideas, not by the force'of their
Let us accept that high
responsibility not as a burden, but
gladly gladly because the chance
to build such a peace is the noblest
endeavour a people can engage in;
gladly also because only if we act
greatly in meeting our
responsibilities abroad we will
remain a great nation, and only if
we remain a great nation will we act
greatly in meeting our challenges at
We have the chance today to do
more than ever before to make life
better in America to ensure
better education, better health, -
to restore respect for law, to make
our communities more livable to
ensure the God-given right of every
American to full and equal
Because the rangyof our needs is
so great because the reach of our
opportunities is so great let us be
bold in our determination to meet
these needs in new ways.
Just as building a structure of
peace abroad has required turning
away from old policies that failed,
so building a new era of progress at
home enquires turning away from
old policies that failed.
Abroad, the shift from old
policies to new has not been a
retreat from our responsibilities,
but a better way to peace.
At home, the shift from old
policies to new will not be a retreat
from our responsibilities, but a
better way to progress.
Abroad and at home, the key to
those new policies lies in the
placing and the division of
responsibility. We have lived too
long with the consequences of
attempting to gather all power and
responsibility to Washington.
Abroad and at home, the time
has come to turn away from the
condescending policies of
paternalism -of "Washington
A person can be expected to act
responnaibly only if he has
responsibility. This is human
nature. So let us encourage
individuals at home and nations
abroad to do more for themselves
and decide more for themselves.
Let us locate more responsibility in
more places.Let us measure what
we will do for others by what they
will do for themselves.
That is why I offer no promise of

every problem. We have lived too
long with that false promise. In
trusting too much to government,
we have asked of it more than it
can deliver. This leads only to
inflated expectations, to reduced
individual effort, and to a
disappointment and frustration that
erode confidence both in what
government can do and in what
people can do.
Government must learn to take
less from people so people can do
more for themselves.

America was built not by
government, but by people not
by welfare, but by work not by

By ETIENNE DUPUCH
THERE ARE things about life and death that the human mind
I had an interesting talk with a Polish lady a few years ago. She
was torn by doubts about the after-life. She said that she wished
she could share my simple faith in the Christian religion.
She was shocked when I told her my approach to the after-life.
'I told her she might be right in feeling that there is nothing
beyond the grave. But just supposing that there is .... and deep
down inside me I believe there is .... I want to be prepared for the
good life that the Christian faith holds out to everyone.
She said that this was not real Christianity .... this was
cold-blooded calculation. She felt it was a wasted effort to be a
Christian if, in the end, there was nothing to it.
I told her she was wrong. The Christian's life can be a joyous
experience if it is not allowed to crush all human emotions. If
there is nothing beyond the grave .... then a Christian reaps his
reward anyway because he makes his heaven on earth. More
important still .... if he discharges the duty that is a sacred trust
to all Christians .... then the world is a better place because ... he
or she .... has lived here.
She wasn't convinced. I'm sure she still thinks I am a phoney.
Maybe she is right. But, right or wrong, I have the richest of all
blessings .... peace of mind and the assurance that no one can
Fr. Brendan, O.S.B., pastor of Mary Star of the Sea at
Freeport, had lunch with me in my apartment in Miami the other
day. He was amused by the monastic kind of life I am living here.
When he was leaving he made a significant remark.
"Any man who can live with himself is all right," he said.
As 1 said in the opening paragraph in this article, there are
things about life and death that the human mind cannot fathom.
During my visit to Nassau for the Christmas holidays, my son
.-Etienne Jr., gave me a book to read. He thought I would find it
It is Ruth Montgomery's A World Beyond. On its cover jacket
; the book is described as "an extraordinary description of the
after life, the result of a series of messages from the famous
Medium Arthur Ford, after his death" to his friend on earth.
Ruth Montgomery is also the author of the best-selling books
SHere and Hereafter and A Gift of Prophecy.
I am satisfied that there is an active link between the living and
the dead. I am satisfied that if a person leaves his heart open he
can have the help of a guardian angel who will take him safely
across obstacles that appear to the ordinary human mind to be
I certainly have had a guardian angel taking care of me all my
adult life. I have a feeling that it is my mother because, although
she has been dead nearly 64 years, I am still conscious of her
presence in times of crisis or danger.
Maybe this is just my imagination. Whatever it may be .... it has
Been good for me.
You may remember the three articles I wrote in this column
last September under the caption "Who Was My Mother?". I did
This after reading the story of Edgar Cayce in the book There Is A
River, written by Thomas Sugre. Cayce was a young farmer of
limited education who was endowed with a remarkable gift of
In his trances Cayce gave information to some of the most
learned men in the world on subjects that had not yet been
discovered by the greatest minds on earth.
Certainly there is something beyond this life .... both good and
evil. You can take your choice. In death .... as in life .... a man
gets what he deserves. This may not always seem true in certain
cases but .... on the long reaches of history .... you will find that:
God moves in a mysterious way
His wonders to perform;
He plants his footsteps in the sea,
And rides upon the storm.
Judge not the Lord by feeble sense,
But trust Him for His grace;
Behind a frowning providence
He hides a smiling face.
The mysteries of life and death are like the truth.
Life and death and truth are all mysteries that we may seek but
are never able fully to understand for, as Oscar Wilde states in a
discussion of the value of analytical criticism, .... "Criticism,
recognizing no position as final, creates that serene temper
.which loves truth for its own sake, and loves it none the less
because it knows it to be unattainable".
I have told you in this column before of an experience 1 had
while I was a soldier in France during the first world war.
For a moment .... out in an open field one day .... I found
myself living over again an experience I felt I had had in an earlier

had in France while on the march with his regiment.
I began to believe that, in the same way that talents and
weaknesses, health and disease can be inherited, it is possible for
emotional experiences to be transmitted down through
generations of a family.
I believe I have now found a clue to the mystery in an article
by J. D. Ratcliff in the December issue of Reader's Digest under
the caption "The Miracle of Your Memory".
"In the dark recesses of the mind," writes Ratcliff, "are filed
literally billions of information bits. And each time you dig back
into the past you are activating this most remarkable of
"Memory is an awesome process," he states further on in the
article, "that has long fascinated inquiring minds. Only recently,
however, has there been a concentrated effort to define, measure
and work out its mechanics. Neuroanatomists, psychologists,
molecular biologists, biochemists and others are involved."
In the course of the discussion he reports some experiments
that seem to throw light on associations that a person may
sometimes feel with an experience that was not in fact his own
but is so vivid that he feels that somewhere, sometime, it must
have happened to him.
And since he knew it had not happened to him in this life the
only reasonable explanation would seem to be that it was an
experience that has welled up to the level of consciousness out of
an earlier existence.
"Psycholigist James V. McConnell, at the University of
Michigan," Ratcliff reports, "used as research subjects planarians
(common flatworms) found in creeks and ponds. He flashed a
light, then gave them an electrical shock which caused them to
contract. Soon the worms learned to contract whenever the light
flashed. McConnell ground them into a worm puree and fed this
to cannibalistic untrained worms. These cannibals then responded
twice as often to the light flashes as McConnell expected -
although they had never been shocked. "
"Another researcher," Ratcliff continues, "got similar results
with goldfish, using food rather than shock as a training agent.
Dr. George Ungar, of Baylor University, tried the idea on rats. In
cages with light and dark rooms, the rats got an electric shock
whenever they entered the dark room. In a tew days they learned
to avoid them. Then he minced the rat brains and shot this soup
into mouse brains. Normally, mice spend 80 percent of the time
in the dark, but after the shots it went down to only 30 percent
of the time. What all this suggests is chemical transfer of
This raises the question as to what chemistry is involved. Dr.
Holger Hyden, a neurobiologist at the University of Goteborg in
Sweden, suggested a chemical but we need not explore this side
of the question.
The important fact is that it has been demonstrated that
experiences .... actually memory .... can be chemically
transmitted from one animal to another .... and this probably
explains the origin of the doctrine of reincarnation.
There is a lot we don't know. There is a lot more than we
realize that is hidden behind a veil from our eyes but I am
satisfied that there is another ... and a better ... life beyond the
grave. And I am satisfied to follow the simple truths that 1
learned at my mother's knee which were later expanded by my
contact with the Catholic faith.
FOOTNOTE TO HISTORY: Under the heading "Sound
Question" the December issue of Reader's Digest printed this tiny
bit: "A reader of Joe Creason's column in the Louisville
Courier-Journal asked: 'Maybe you or your readers can help me
with this problem. My wife and I believe in women's lib. We are
equal. But who gets up when there is a strange noise downstairs?"'
I can answer this question for him.
Who gets up depends on the woman. If I allowed her my wife
would be the one to get up and go downstairs. Her one concern in
life is that I should not get hurt. We have settled this problem by
both of us getting up and going downstairs together.
Because of the bold stand I have taken in The Tribune and on
public platforms on every public issue in the Bahamas I have lived
constantly under threat of violence. It is for this reason that my
wife insists on going everywhere with me while I am in the
islands. She feels that if anything happens to me she wants it to
happen to her too.
She is a woman without any trace of fear. She belongs to the
breed of American pioneer women who went out West in covered
wagons with their husbands and braved the hardships and faced
the dangers of Indian territory early in the last century.
I have never objected to her sharing dangers with me
because I can think of no finer thing than the possibility of us
crossing Jordan together.
When two people have shared every moment of their lives for
nearly 45 years separation must be a cruel experience. Life would
be empty for one without the other. The thing that concerns me
is that .... because I have a more resilient nature .... I might adjust.
I don't think she could.
From time to time I have written some nice things in this
column about my wife. My readers must feel that I think she is a
wonderful woman. I not only think so ... I know it.
THOUGHTS FOR TODAY
For those who see Truth and would follow her; for those who
recognize Justice and would stand for her, success is not the only
thing. Success! Why falsehood has often that to give. Must not
Truth and Justice have something to give that is their own by
proper right theirs in essence, and not by accident? That they
have, and not here and now, every one who has felt their
Ufe is a fragment, a moment between two eternities,
influenced by all that has preceded, and to influence all that
follows. The only way to illumine it is by extent of view.
Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I
may not reach them. but I can look up and see their beauty,
believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.
Success lies, not in achieving what you aim at, but in aiming at
what you ought to achieve, and pressing forward, sure of
achievement here, or if not here, hereafter.

The following Press Statements by the Free National Movement are published
here in full for the information of the public
Over the past weeks, statements have been made in the local and foreign press
which tend to mislead the public as to the position of the Free National Movement
on independence and other related matters. The party's Executive has therefore
decided to issue this statement to set the record straight and to outline the true
position of the FNM.
Most of the statements referred to have been made by Mr. Errington Watkins,
the Representative for Marsh Harbour, and other supporters of the Abaco
It appears that the statements are designed mainly to convince the public:
1.--that the FNM delegation to the recent Constitutional Conference did not act in
accordance with the policy of the party on independence;and
2.--that the delegation somehow betrayed those who were pressing in London for
separation of Abaco from the rest of the Bahamas.
The Declaration of Commitment which was unanimously adopted by the FNM
Convention in April of 1972, states clearly that the party was not against ultimate
independence for the Bahamas. The party opposed the Government's timetable
for independence in 1973 but agreed with the decision of the British Government
that the issue should be decided by the people in a general election.
Both political parties campaigned on that central issue in the general election
and it must therefore be assumed that in voting for the PLP a majority of the
voters accepted the Government's timetable for independence in 1973.
No legal or moral grounds could be found to justify any attempt to reverse the
decision of the people after it was clearly agreed by all that the people would in fact
make the decision. Indeed, no attempt was made by any member of the party to do
so In the days immediately after September 19.
On October 6, 1972, the official position of the party was publicly stated in a press
release by the Leader of the Opposition, Mr. Kendal G.L. Isaacs. Members of the
party's Parliamentary Group as well as members of the Central Council were
given an opportunity to make their views heard in a special meeting which was
held that same day.
The statement, which was approved by the Council, said:
"Since the voters have spoken clearly, it is incumbent upon us as individual
citizens and as members of the Constitutional Opposition to leave no doubt that we
accept the decision of the people".
No one, including Mr. Watkins, raised any objection to that position. It was the
determination of the FNM that, having lost the election, the next course clearly
open to it was to do all that was possible to secure the best possible Independence
Constitution for all the people of the Bahamas. That determination was also
enunciated in the October 6 statement:
"It is the duty of the Free National Movement to ensure that our Independence
Constitution will be so framed as to guarantee continued and broadened freedom
for the individual and the survival of the democratic system"
Those who now seek to malign the leaders of the FNM as having betrayed the
cause of the people are being thoroughly dishonest. It was not until the Con-
stitutional Conference became imminent that Mr. Watkins and others became
agitated. Mr. Watkins made it obvious that he wanted to appoint himself as one of
the FNM's delegates to the Conference. He did not however make it clear at that
stage exactly what he wanted to advocate at the Conference.
Subsequent developments indicated without a shadow of a doubt that what Mr.
Watkins and his supporters were after was not one last stand to delay in-
dependence, but rather to seek the separation of Abaco from the rest of the
In their official proposal to the British Government, Mr. Watkins and his group
made no attempt to convince the British Government that there were grounds
upon which independence for the Bahamas should be delayed. They sought only
the separation of Abaco.
Such is the hypocrisy of the man who would now seek to persuade the Bahamian
people that the FNM did not act with honour and integrity on this issue.
Any suggestion that the FNM or its delegation betrayed Mr. Watkins and his
separatist colleagues is absolutely without foundation and can be charitably
described only as a mischievous lie.
The FNM has never, by private resolution nor public statement, adopted a policy
of separation of any of the islands of the Bahamas and such a suggestion was
never put to the Council by any member of the organization.
In conversation with some of the supporters of the Abaco separatist movement,
leaders of the party made it clear that while they could support any legitimate
effort to delay independence, under no circumstances could they commit
themselves to supporting a petition for the separation of Abaco.
Information is now available to the Executive of the FNM to the effect that the
separatist movement is being encouraged mainly by a group of extreme right wing
politicians in Great Britain who adhere to the racist policies of Mr. Enoch Powell.
Even if individual members could have been persuaded to support the separatist
movement they could not in good conscience, as Bahamians and as adherents to
the philosophy of the FNM, ally themselves with that racist element in England.
It is Mr. Watkins and his extremist group who have betrayed the people of Abaco
and the people of the Bahamas, since what they seek is not the peace and
prosperity of Abaco and the Bahamas, but rather to take advantage of the sincere
and genuine sentiments of the good people of Abaco to serve their own sellish in-
The leader and the other FNM delegates to the London Conference could not put
forward a plea for the separation of Abaco since they had absolutely no mandate
from the people nor the party so to do.
The exercise which Mr. Watkins and his separatist colleagues undertook in
London was doomed to fail and Mr. Watkins knew that it was doomed to fail.
However, he callously utilised the support, emotional and financial, of sincere
people to persue a subverted cause Mr. Watkins should hide his face in shame
instead of attempting to blame the leaders of the FNM for his failure.
A statement attributed to Mr. Watkins, and not so far denied by him threatens
the use of violence in persuit of the separatist cause. The leaders of the FNM feel it
incumbent upon them to issue a clear statement to the Bahamian people that they
do not and cannot support the use of violence as a legitimate tool for the attainment
of political goals. It is the view of the FNM leadership that as long as there is the
opportunity to operate within the democratic context, that opportunity must be
The party made no effort to restrict Mr. Watkins and other members from
proceeding with their separatist petition. While the party could not support a
petition, it felt that no disciplinary steps should have been taken to dissuade Mr.
Watkins from proceeding with it. While that position was adopted in the interest of
fair play, the party cannot under any circumstances remain silent and inactive
when one of its own members makes the kind of statements which have been at-
tributed to Mr. Watkins.
As long as the present Government, and any other government, rules in ac-
cordance with the letter and spirit of the Constitution and guarantees each and
every citizen freedom of legitimate political action, then violence cannot be
justified. It is only when a government seeks to rule unconstitutionally and un-
justly that a citizen can countenance the use of violence.
Mr. Watkins, in advocating violence, is doing a grave disservice to the entire
country and to the people of Abaco in particular. He is playing into the hands of
those radical supporters of the PLP who would take a delight in launching the
Bahamas into independence on a sea of blood. No sane and patriotic Bahamian
should want to assume responsibility for such a disastrous course.
While Mr. Watkins, in spite of his blow and bluster, has accomplished absolutely
nothing of value, he has sought to detract from the accomplishments which came
as a result of the position taken by the FNM and which was pursued by the party's
delegates at the London conference.
The official delegation, and other responsible members of the party, devoted
many hours of serious study in preparation for the conference and during the
conference and the party is justifiably proud to proclaim to the Bahamian people
that those efforts were rewarded with many successes on behalf of the people.
A subsequent press statement will briefly review some of the points which were
achieved through intelligent approach.
Last week the Free National Movement issued the first of two statements designed to set the record straight with regard to the party's position on independence and other related matters.
These statements are as a result of public pronouncements made primarily by Mr. Errington Watkins, the Representative for Marsh Harbour, in an obvious attempt to mislead the public
with regard to tb party's position on independence and the performance of its delegation at the recent Constitutional Conference in London
The FNM has been completely consistent on the entire question of independence.
Its first objective was to delay independence at least for another term of the
legislature, but that objective was lost as a result of the September 19 general
election. The FNM, as a responsible political party, was bound to accept this
decision of the people.
The second objective was to secure for the Bahamian people the best possible
Constitution under which an independent Bahamas would be governed. That end
was quietly but relentlessly pursued by the leaders of the party.
The FNM now confidently proclaims that its efforts have paid off handsomely,
since agreement was reached at the Conference in London to produce for the
country one of the best constitutions to be achieved by any former colonial
territory moving into independence.
1. Amendment of Constitution
Perhaps the most important concession won by the FNM was the extra
protection which it was able to secure for the more important provisions of the
It would be recalled that the Government's proposal for amending the en-
trenched provisions of the Constitution required, in some cases, a two-thirds
majority vote of the legislature and in other cases, a three-quarters majority
vote of the legislature. The effect of tnat was that immediately after in-
dependence, the governing party would have been able to exercise its present
majority in the legislature to amend the entrenched provisions of the Constitution.
In its memorandum on the proposed Constitution, the FNM stated:
"It is therefore of the utmost importance that the Constitution should not be
tampered with at will by successive governments, particularly those sections
dealing with Fundamental Rights and matters relating to the Constitution and
Parliament. No attempt should be made to change these entrenched provisions
except with the most serious justification and with the total involvement of
parliament and the people".
In spite of the initial opposition of the PLP Government. and in spite of the well-
known Inbred British prejudice against it, it was nevertheless agreed to provide
for a referendum in any case where it was proposed to amend any of the en-
trenched provisions of the new Constitution, thus ensuring the total involvement of
the people before fundamental changes can be made.
Simply stated, if any Government in the future wishes to change the entrenched
provisions of the Constitution, that government would not only have to secure the
necessary votes in Parliament, but it would also have to put the issue directly to
the people for their approval or disapproval in a referendum.
2. Entrenchment of Provisions
A modern democratic Constitution is designed to serve the entire country and to
lay down the fundamental principles under which a people will be governed
regardless of the inevitable changes which will take place as a result of partisan
politics. In other words, the rules of the game must be established and adhered to
by all concerned and must not be subject to arbitrary change to suit the shifting
objectives of particular governments.
Therefore, as with other independence constitutions, the new Bahamas Con-
stitution will provide that certain important provisions will be protected by
elaborate safeguards and not subject to easy amendment.
These provisions are described as entrenched provisions and in the case of the
Bahamas, will be subject to amendment only by (a) a two-thirds majority vote of
the legislature and a referendum; and (b) a three-quarters vote of the legislature
and a referendum.
The new Constitution will provide for the entrenchment of a wider range of
provisions than most other Commonwealth Constitutions. Some of the provisions
which can be described as two-thirds entrenched (because of the legislative votes
needed for amendment) relate to the establishment of the office of Governor
General, the tenure of office of Senators and Representatives, the Public Service
Provisions which are three-quarters entrenched relate to the legal force of the
Constitution, Citizenship, Fundamental Rights, Parliament and the Courts.
3. Postponement of Elections
It would be recalled that the FNM expressed grave concern over the proposals of
the Government with regard to postponement of general elections "in times of
national emergency". In its Memorandum, the party pointed out:
"It is obvious that circumstances can arise to make it virtually impossible to
hold general elections when they are due. However, it is absolutely essential for
the preservation of a peaceful democracy that the Constitution be so worded that
no future government will be able to declare an emergency without the most
serious reasons and that the right of the people to elect a new parliament after the
appropriate passage of time is guaranteed".
The Conference also took a serious view of this particular issue and it was
therefore agreed that parliament will be able to extend its life only in times of war
and then only for a period not exceeding twelve months at a time and only up to a
maximum of two years.
4. Citizenship and Residence
In the national debate on independence, considerable attention was focused on
the question of citizenship by the FNM and by many Bahamians who rightly
regarded this as an issue of vital importance for the benefit of individuals and the
fair image of the country as a whole.
It can now be stated that in addition to those laws which will be enacted by the
legislature with regard to citizenship, the new Constitution itself will make just
provisions for the acquisition and retention of Bahamian citizenship.
The agreement of the Bahamas Government was secured to give special and
sympathetic consideration for the extension of Bahamian citizenship to long-time
residents of the Bahamas. Furthermore, the Government has also agreed to make
special provisions for foreign wives of Bahamians. If a foreign wife does not elect
to register as a Bahamian she will nevertheless be given the right to reside and to
5. Right to Leave the Country
The right of a citizen to enter as well as to leave his country has come to be ex-
pected in modern times as one of the inalienable human rights. However, the
present Constitution and the Government's proposals for the new Independence
Constitution pointedly omitted any reference to the right of the citizen to leave. In
other words, it was apparently contemplated that such a right was not to be in-
cluded among the Fundamental Rights of Bahamian citizens.
This question was, however, satisfactorily resolved at the Conterence ana tme
new Constitution will guarantee to all Bahamians the right to enter their own
country as well as the right to leave, subject only to lawful and reasonable
6.Protection from Restrictions
The right of a citizen to move freely within the territorial limits of his own
country is also today regarded as one of the Fundamental Rights.
However, the Government's proposal contained a dangerous provision which
would have seriously diminished this right. Under that provision it would have
been possible for the Government to make laws and orders unreasonably to
prevent a Bahamian from going to any part of his own country and also to confine
him to any specified part of the country.
This alarming provision was finally dropped and it was agreed that Bahamians
should not be restricted in this manner and that they should have the right to move
freely throughout their own country and that no citizen should be unreasonably
restricted to any particular part of the country.
7. Disqualification of MPs
Members of the Opposition as well as members of the governing party in
parliament have been concerned over the existing provision in the Constitution
which made it possible in effect for a member to be voted out of his seat without
benefit of appeal, on the basis of contractual relations with the Government.
It was agreed that the new Constitution will not leave an individual member at
the mercy of a simple majority vote, but will provide him with the right of appeal
to the Supreme Court if the Senate or the House unreasonably disqualifies him
from being a member.
8. Senate Membership
The proposals put forward by the Government could have reduced the present
Opposition Senate complement to three. It was agreed however that the
Opposition would have a minimum of four members in the Senate. Three so-
called "floating" Senate seats are to be assigned after consultation by the Prime
Minister with the Leader of the Opposition.
The effect of this is to make it possible for the Opposition to gain additional
Senate seats, depending upon the returns of general elections.
9. Delimitation of Constituencies
In the present Constitution, there is provision for the establishment and func-
tioning of a Constituencies Commission and the general guidelines under which
that Commission must operate. An objectionable feature of those provisions is the
stipulation that once the Commission has reported and once orders giving effect to
its report have been approved by the House of Assembly, no appeal could be made
to any court.
Under the new Constitution, parliament will be able to make provisions for a
right of challenge in the Supreme Court on the grounds that the Commission had
departed from the principles laid down by the Constitution for review of the
number and boundaries of constituencies.
10. Political Broadcasting
Adequate access by the Opposition to the national radio is regarded by the FNM
as an absolute necessity for the survival of democracy in the Bahamas. While the
Conference decided that it was not practical to indclude in the Constitution a
formula to govern political broadcasting, it was nevertheless agreed that the
Opposition would have adequate access to the radio during the period between
general elections and that to this end rules governing political broadcasts would be

League champions McAlpine clash
St. John's defeat Prince

with league leaders Tropigas Sunday tie Aquinas for lead
By IVAN JOHNSON
TOMORROW Soccer fans will be able to witness what promises to be the most exciting double
header so far this season when the four big guns of the Sunday Soccer League Tropigas, McAlpine
Red Lion. St. Georges meet at Clifford Park.
from five games. No doubt the
Clan will be out to avenge their
only loss ot the season on
Sunday three weeks ago
Tropigas heat them 2-1.
However, on present form it
looks like Tropigas could well
repeat this result. They have
wori their last four matches
in the first match oi the.
afternoon ITropigas. who are at
present in first place in the
League table with 10 points
from six games, will play last
year's League champions .
McAlpine are second in the
League table with eight points
and appear to be going from
strength to strength under the

when they were beaten oy
Tropigas on the Sunday as well
as losing the indispensable
services of their captain, Dick
Wilson, who was carried off
with a broken leg. Adding
insult to injury they then lost
the President's Cup 3-2 to Red
Lion the following day with
Stanham and Haywood also
being added to the injury list.
in fact if McAlpine want to
keep the League Championship
within their sights they must
win on Sunday. Tropigas have
only to play Paradise, Red
Lion and Dynamos, who are
firmly bolted to the bottom of
the league table, while the Clan
will have to battle against Red
Lion, St. Georges and Paradise
after Sunday's fixture.
It is difficult to conceive
that Tropigas will lose to either
Paradise or the Dynamos
although the Red Lion
encounter will undoubtedly be
a real tester.
McAlpine, even if they do
emerge as the victors or
Sunday, have the much harder
task of beating Red Lion and
the 'tough' boys of the League,
St. Georges who are always a
difficult side to beat, while
Paradise are liable to upset the

Whoever wins it should be a
great match with Ray Simpson
and lan Lever in the front line
for the Clan supported by
David Jenner and Peter
Stanham in midfield and Mike

Tropigas are probably the
better balanced side with Bob
Elliot, Phil Davis and Jimmy
Murray making up the attack

and Kenny Love in the middle

up the sounder defence in the

President's Cup are also in the
running for the League
Championship. They are at
present lying in third position
in the table behind rropigas
and McAlpine with six points
from five games.
A McAlpine victory on
Sunday would indeed provide
the Lions with a lot of
incentive if they can beat the
Saints then they will be
suitably poised two points
behind the leaders.
Following this the Lions
could very possibly defeat the
Clan and Tropigas, both of
whom they are due to meet
before the end of the season.
This run of wins would
probably clinch the League
Championship for them.
The Lions are the only team
to have beaten Tropigas this
season. They defeated the
League leaders 4-3 in the
second match of the season.

matches will be 1.30 p.m. and

TUCSON, ARIZONA (AP) -
Australian Bruce Crampton,
gunning for a second consecutive
victory, put together another
two-under-par 70 for the early
second round lead Friday in the
$150,000 Dean Martin-Tucson
Open golf tournament.
The veteran Crampton, winner of
last week's Phoenix Open, had a
36-hole total of 140, four under par
on the cold and wet Tucson
national golf club course, a
7,200-yard, par 72 desert layout.
About half the field of 144 still
was out in the shifting winds and
occasional showers when Crampton
hit a three wood tee shot into the
water for a bogey on the final hole.
Among the early finishers,
former Masters Champion Charles
Coody and Dave Marad were tied
for second at 141, just one stroke
back. Each had a 69.

"On the press, on the press," was
audible from coach Todd in the
Prince Will bench. And the press
worked. St. John took the lead by
only three points and then dropped
to a tie before they gained a first
quarter lead of 15-12.
Leonard Stuart gave the first lick
on a jumper and moved Prince Will
one behind in the second quarter.

strengthen the centre forward area

in to tie the game at 25 all.
Rose on two early baskets in the
third quarter moved Prince Will
29-25 before St. John's controlling

their first two. Buck Johnson
followed on an outsider and
brought them tied again.
