HOTEL DENIES ACCUSATIONS BY UNIONS

AND TWO GOVERNMENT MP's




King's Inn management






claim they've always acted


to protect their


S


By MIKE LOTHIAN
THE SWITCH FROM WEEKLY TO BI-MONTHLY SALARY PAYMENT by the King's Inn, Freeport, has
created no hardship for employees, and the hotel acted within its legal rights in not complying with a Labour
Ministry recommendation that salaries be paid each week, a hotel press release declared today.


It was the first official
statement by the King's Inn
management since a brief
wildcat strike on December 30
drew public attention to the
two-month old dispute
between management and the
Freeport branch of the
Bahamas Hotel and Catering
Workers' Union over pay
procedure.
In mid-November, when the
hotel re-opened after
fire-damage had been repaired,
managmeent introduced a
computerised system of paying
twice a month instead of the
traditional once a week, in
what was described in today's
press release as one of several
"stringent economy measures."
The employees, have
charged that the new system
has imposed hardships on
them, because they have to
meet such weekly
commitments as rent and
groceries.
The hotel today, besides
replying to specific accusations
made by the union and
supported in a press conference
by Grand Bahamas M.P.'s
Kendal Nottage and Henry
Bowen, also stressed that
management has always acted
to protect the interests of their


"most precious commodity,
their employees."
Countering charges that
the new system would impose
hardship on the workers, the
management press release said:
GRATUITIES
"King's Inn firmly believes
that by paying semi-monthly
and effecting the desired saving
would not in any way create a
hardship for its employees,!
since waiters are paid their
gratuities, which is quite
substantial, on a daily basis,
the maids their gratuities on a
weekly basis and the bellmen
their gratuities on a weekly
basis, so the weekly salary
itself would be understandably
insignificant.
"'Tips are the name of the
game for service employees in
hotels all over the world," the
release said.
(No reference was made to
such staff as kitchen workers,
who are entirely dependant on
thtir salaries.)
Dealing with the Labour
Ministry's position on the
issue, the release said that in
early December, when the
union officially notified the
Ministry of the existence of the
dispute, "the eminently
respected Minister of Labour


Clifford A. Darling visited
Freeport to discuss the matter
with both sides."
Management's understanding
at that point was that
"although stressing his
preference for weekly pay, the
Minister indicated agreement
to permit management the
opportunity of seeking
appropriate counsel as to the
ramification of any law
governing a situation such as
this. Therefore, management
believed that a moratorium had
been granted."
On January 2 a letter was
written to management on
instructions from the Minister
"recommending, suggesting
and advising" a return to the
weekly pay system.
PROCEDURES
Today's press release said
that management was advised
that despite the letter, there
are "stages and procedures"
laid down to be followed in
attempting to settle an
industrial dispute.
"There is no breaking of any
law when there are procedures
which can be followed," the
release said. "The laws for such
times as this are clearly stated
for both union and
management to follow prior to


a final decision.
"This is what King's Inn did
in this situation, surely not in
defiance or disrespect, but
rather by adhering to
appropriate guidelines and
related legislation."
The release said management
and the union have continued
to meet to discuss "the
possibility of compromise,
settlement or adjustments of
the pay plan which would be
harmonious with the new
computerization programme.
This included a (proposed)
change from paying on the
fifth and twentieth of each
month to paying every 12 days
or 26 pay cheques per year
plus other concessions and
compromises that would be
agreeable to both sides."
The hotel said that as
management and the union are
still able to negotiate, even
though no settlement has yet
been reached, the hotel is not
bound to comply with the
recommendation of a third
party, the Labour Minister.
The statement stressed that
at no time did management
propose paying employees
every 21 days as claimed in the
joint statement of Mr. Bowen
and Mr. Nottage.
PROTECTED
Backing up its claim that it
has the interest of the
employee at heart,
management in today's release
pointed out that despite the
May 26, 1972 fire that dealt a
"devastating financial and
economical blow" to the
King's Inn, the hotel did not
close down and lay off the
workers until repairs had been
made.
"A management decision
was made, keeping in mind the
good and welfare of company
employees, to negotiate a
90-day lease on the then closed
International Hotel. It would
be operated as King's Inn West
until Labour Day when it
would be returned to its
owners.
"Regretfully, this also
returned out to be an
economic fiasco for
management."
The release said that until
the Nov. 16 re-opening of the
King's Inn main buildings, it
was "touch and go as far as
finances were concerned."
STAFF KEPT
Staff was retained to operate
the International Hotel, other
staff members were placed by
the King's Inn with other
hotels, and "everyone
concerned '\as permitted to
enjoy the housing facilities of
our staff quarters."
Disclosing the reason for the
purchase of a computer to
implement a semi-monthly
salary payment scheme, the
release said "it became very
apparent that in order for the
business to eventually thrive
and rejuvenate, effective and
stringent economy measures
had to be ignored," the
earnings to be obtained under
the new system "would be in
the vicinity of close to $25,000
per year.
On January 18 nine -five
members of the union met at
Eight Mile Rock and voted
unanimously to empower their
leaders to call a strike against
the King's Inn at any time after
Jan. 26. the day the legal
"cooling-off" period in the
dispute expires. It is
understood that only about 60
of those at the vote were
King's Inn employees.
The hotel has a staff of
between 700 and 800.

NEW MANAGEMENT

TEAM FOR PEOPLE'S

PENNY SAVINGS BANK
A NEW management team
has been named for the
People's Penny Savings Bank
following the retirement after
20 years of Mr. A. Leon
McKinney, chairman of the
Board and founder-president
and managing director of the
bank.
Dr. Cleveland Eneas Sr.,
formerly vice-president, has
been elected chairman to
succeed Mr. McKinney, whose
retirement became effective
January 1. Mr. McKinney will,
however, remain a member of
the Board of directors.
Named president and general
manager was Senator Shadrachl
A. Morris, who has also been
with the bank since its
inception. Mr. Morris was
previously manager of the
Market Street branch of Penny
Savings.
Also named to a key
position with the bank was
Crooked Island representative
Cyril Tynes, who has served as
accountant for the past two
years. Mr. Tynes has been
named exec u tive
vice-president.
Others promoted were: Mr.
Vincent Martin, manager of the
Bank's Wulff Road branch,
who was named first
vice-president. Hie has been
with Penny Savings for 18
years.
Mrs. Erma Marshall-Larrow,
another employee of
long-standing, was promoted to
second vice-president.
The Penny Savings Bank
head office is located on
Market and McPherson Streets,
with branches at East Street
and Wulff Road.
It is the first and only
Bahamian-owned institution of
its kind. The bank was
spare-headed by Mr. McKinney
to provide over-the-hill banking
facilities for the small
Bahamian businessman and
worker.


cardiovascular surgery at the
University of Miami School of
Medicine and has continued in
a consulting capacity since
going into private practice.
Dr. Francisco Hernandez,
clinical director of the National
Children's Cardiac Hospital.
Miami. and Dr. Maude
Stevenson, pediatrician at the
Princess Margaret Hospital, are
trustees of the Heart
Foundation and have been
responsible for the annual
children's clinics that
determine the necessity for the
corrective heart surgery, which
is eventually underwritten by
the Foundation.
ATPMH
For some time Dr. Jude has
advocated that certain heart
operations should be
performed at the Princess
Margaret, because he thought
the hospital was capable of
handling them.
However, experienced
surgical teams and equipment
are necessary in the more
complicated cases, such as
open-heart surgery, but what is
today considered a safe and
almost routine operation can
be performed at the Princess
Margaret under certain
circumstances.
A spokesman for the
Foundation said today that
from the standpoint of the
Heart Foundation it "can save
considerable money because of
the expense incurred to send a
patient to Miami for heart
surgery and the subsequent
hospital expense before he
returns. It will enable the Heart
Foundation to meet the
challenge of more patients
turning to it each year for
financial help in what has to be
regarded as a life and death
request."
Dr. Jude was in Nassau on
Saturday to speak at the first
annual conference of the
Medical Association of the
Bahamas on "Heart Surgery
Today."
The type of operation to he
performed on little Julie Jones
is known as a PDA (Patent
Iuctus Arteriosclerosis), which
is to reduce in size the artery
tube connecting the two
chambers of the heart. At
present it is pumping too much
blood into Julie's lungs. Dr.
Jude said that it is desirable to
correct this type of defect
between the ages of three and
six years.
FIRST ONE
The first successful heart
operation ever performed was
of this type and was done by
)r. William Gross at the
Children's Hospital in Boston
in 1939. It is now considered a
routine heart operation with
most major hospitals
performing them weekly.
The PDA type operation is
not an "open-heart" surgical
process. but one that is
performed on the outside
chamber of the heart itself.
However. the chest does have
to be opened and the lung
detracted so that the surgeon
can get to the defective tube
for corrective surgery.
Dr. Jude said that this type
heart problem can be
recognized by shortness of
breath, the child being


underweight with lack of
normal development and the
sound of a murmur as the heart
beats. If it is not repaired at an
early age the child is prone to
more colds and respitaory
ailments, is frequently more
frail because the heart is
working so much harder, does
not have energy and has no
desire to keep up with other
children.
As the child grows older the
lack of early surgery on the
abnormal opening, or duct
tube, could become infected.
Such a condition would be
considered serious as the
patient could die from the
blood infection. It would take
years to reach such a
condition, but the earlier the
corrective surgery is performed
the better chance for the child
as he grows older, the doctor
said.
Corrective surgery, said the
doctor, is preferably done
before a child starts school so
as to avoid the risk of
respiratory infection
transmitted by being in contact
with other children who may
have a cold. The safety period
for such heart operations is
between the ages of two and
five, although many have been
performed shortly after birth if
the child is born with an overly
enlarged duct tube and having
difficulty breathing.
Julie's operation is expected
to take about two hours and
she will be in the intensive care
unit from 24 to 48 hours.
Stitches will be taken out
about the fifth day, barring
any unforeseen complications,
and she will be allowed to
return to her home in Abaco in
a week to ten days.
Mary Kelly, a member of
the Heart Foundation, will be
reporting on the operation
this week through The
Tribune and readers will learn
more about Julie when she is
admitted to the Princess
Margaret Hospital on
Wednesday for her historic
operation Friday.

Commissioner, claiming that he has been victimizing those he
believes to be Opposition FNM supporters.


Distinct representative Cyril
Tynes confirmed that the
petitions had been sent to
Deputy Prime Minister Arthur
Hanna. who is also Minister for

PILGIIN All CRASI


ANTI-WHITE-GOVTS. LEADER ASSASSINATED
DAKAR, SENEGAL (AP) Amilcar Cabral a prominent leader of the
Black African struggle against white governments, was assassinated
Saturday night in front of his home in Conakry, capital of the Guinea
Republic.
Guinean President Sekou Toure announced Cabral's death in an
emotion-charged speech broadcast by the state-controlled Conakry radio.
Toure blamed 'imperialism and Portuguese colonialism' for the murder
and said the 'principal killers' were arrested in Conakry soon after the
crime. Toure did not say who the persons arrested were nor did he say how
Cabral was killed.
Cabral lived with his wife in a Conakry villa put at his disposal by the
Guinean authorities.
PHILLIPS RETURNS TO FOX HUNT WITH PRINCESS ANNE
LONDON (AP) Princess Anne and Lt. Mark Phillips, the British army
officer who has often been linked to her romantically, went fox hunting
together during the weekend.
Phillips, 24, who is serving with the Queen's Dragoon Guards in
Germany, took a weekend furlough to join the 22-year-old princess at the
southern England estate of Comte Guy de Pelet.
Speculation that Queen Elizabeth 11's daughter and Phillips are soon to
become engaged intensified earlier this month when they kissed publicly
before he went off to join his regiment.
Officials of the royal household said Princess Anne was spending a
private weekend in the country. They declined further comment.
The Ministry of Defense said it was not unusual for young officers
serving in Germany to spend weekends in England 'if their unit agrees and
they have leave available.'
The Princess and Phillips rude to hounds with the Blackmore and
Sparksford Vale hunt in Somerset.
Phillips' family said he was due to return to his unit by Monday
morning.
HUGHES CONFINED TO BED HEART ATTACK?
LONDON (AP) Billionaire Howard Hughes has been confined to bed
following an apparent heart attack and is being tended by an American
heart specialist called in last week, the Daily Mirror reported Monday.
The mass-circulation tabloid said the 68-year-old tycoon has been
confined to bed in his ninth-floor eyrie atop the plush 'Inn at the Park'
hotel and ordered to stop work.
The paper reported Hughes aides believed their boss had suffered a heart
attack. However, it also quoted a Hughes spokesman as saying:
'It is true that Mr. Hughes has not been too well. But he is now fit and
welL During the past week, Mr. Hughes has been confined to bed.'
The Mirror said an electrically-driven wheelchair was delivered to
Huphes' penthouse hideaway where he barricaded himself in last month
after flyingjo London from earthouake-shattered Nicaragua.
The paper added that special smooth plastic-coated matting had been
laid over the thick carpets in Hughes' suite so he could move around in the
wheelchair.
The hotel Monday still insisted Hughes was not in the hotel and said it
could not connect any calls for the elusive billionaire to the penthouse
suite.
ABDUCTORS STILL HOLDING HUARTE
PAMPLONA, SPAIN (AP) Though reportedly his family has met all
demands for his release, kidnapped industrialist Felipe Huarte remained
held by his abductors Monday.
Huarte, SO, an executive of one of Spain's biggest construction firms,
was kidnapped by Basque guerrillas Jan. 16 and apparently whisked to
France. His whereabouts since then has remained a mystery.
His family has neither confirmed nor denied reports they raid 50
million pesetas 793,000 dollars ransom for his release.
His kidnappers, four men of the Basque Guerrilla Organization E.T.A.,
had also demanded one of Haurte's companies to rehire 95 workers fired
over better pay demands. They were reinstated the day after the kidnap.
BRANDO SCHNEIDER AND FILM DIRECTOR INDICTED
BOLOGNA, ITALY (AP) Marion Brando, French actress Maria
Schneider and Italian director Bernardo Bertolucci were indicted Saturday
on charges of obscenity for their film "The Last Tango In Paris."
The film was banned nationwide last month by a Rome judge, who
turned over the case to the Bologna court because the film was first shown
in Italy at Nearby Porretta Terme.
The Rome and the Bologna magistrates contended the film was obscene
mainly because of a sodomy sequence.
Italian film critics have termed the case a scandal. They described the
film as one of the best seen since the end of World War 11.

ABORTION ADVOCATE RECEIVES LETTER BOMB
ROME (AP) Loris Fortuna, a Socialist deputy campaigning to legalize
abortion in Italy, received an envelope containing explosives in the mail
Saturday.
The envelope, postmarked Naples, was opened by Fortuna's secretary,

explosive used in the manufacture of gunpower and traces of what they
believed to be an acid.
Fortuna, co-sponsor of Italy's first divorce law, has announced he would

Fortune, who calls abortion a civil right, said earlier he intends to
introduce a bill in parliament calling for government-paid abortion if three
doctors attest that a woman's 'physical and mental health' is endangered

CHARGED WITH DEATH OF BANK PRESIDENT & FAMILY
DONIPHAN, MO. 20, (AP) Three men were charged with murder
Saturday in the killings of a bank president and two members of his family,
found shot to death Wednesday shortly after the disclosure of an extortion
plot.
The charges were filed just a few hours before funeral and burial services
for Robert R. Kitterman, 43; his wife Bertha, 38; and their daughter

the leaders of Laos, Cambodia,
Thailand and South Korea.
Haig was dispatched Jan. 14 to
inform America's Asian allies
of the terms of a tentative
agreement reached by Kissinger
and North Vietnamese
negotiators.
On the eve of Kissinger's
return to Paris, Agnew told
newsmen, "We're hoping we
can nail this down."
Talking with reporters at a
White House reception
following inaugural-weekend
worship services, the Vice
President said, "I'm very
optimistic" more now than
in October, when Kissinger
declared, "peace is at hand."
That October optimism
evaporated when negotiations
suddenly broke off and Nixon
re-escalated the bombing of the
North, but Agnew indicated he
did not believe that will
happen again.
He did say, however, that
"war is not a unilateral thing"
- it can't be ended by one side
only.
NO COMMENT
Reports last week indicated
Agnew would head for Saigon
next weekend, apparently as a
followup to the signing of a
peace settlement. Asked about
this, he said he could not
answer because such an
announcement would have to
come from the President.
Meanwhile the foreign
ministers of the Saigon
government and its bitter rival,
the Viet Cong's 'revolutionary
provisional government,'
converged on Paris Sunday to
be on hand for the crucial final
phase of the secret peace talks.


VC demand to


sign on same


terms as Saigon
PARIS (AP) Viet Cong foreign
minister Mrs. Nguyen Thi Binh
returned to Paris Sunday night for
the crucial phase of the peace talks
and said the Viet Cong's
revolutionaryy provisional
government' will insist on signing a
peace agreement on the same terms
as the Saigon government.
Mrs. Binh flew in from Hanoi via
Peking and Moscow after a six-week
absence to be on hand for the
secret talks between Henry A.
Kissinger and Hanoi's Le Duc Tho,
due to resume Tuesday.
She told newsmen at Orly
Airport the future peace agreement
"must be signed by all four parties"
to the four-year-old peace
conference.
She said the Viet Cong and
North Vietnam "will do everything
possible to achieve a quick
settlement but everything depends
on the United States."
Mrs. Binh said the Viet Cong
'government' was prepared to begin
direct negotiations with the Saigon
government as soon as possible
after an agreement was signed but
she stressed that such talks must
he conducted "on the basis of
equality and the principle of
non-elimination of one side by the
other."
South Vietnamese foreign
minister Tran Van Lam, who was
due in Paris Monday morning, said
in an interview last week that
Saigon would nut sign any
agreement mentioning the
'provisional revolutionary
government' or recopgni/ing it in
any forml. The dispute over the way
in which the agreement will be
signed is believed to be one of the
key issues still to be settled when
Kissinger and TIhe resume their
talks on 'Tueday.
Mrs. Blinh. wearing a black
woolen coat over her light hlue


traditional Ao )ul, seemed tired
after her flight as she was welcomed
by a small crowd of Communist
officials. including the Soviet and
Chinese ambassadors.
Also on hand to meet her was
Xuan Thuy, head of the Hanoi
delegation at the four-sided peace
talks and who has been acting as
Tho's deputy in the separate secret
negoitiaons. The Saigon
government and Viet Cong have
been excluded from the secret talks
but have been kept closely
informed by the respective allies.
Mrs. Binh said the Viet Congis i n
complete agreement with the
proposed settlement which she said
"offers the United States an
honourable way out of Its dirty
war."


The Viet Cong's Mrs.
Nguyen Thi Binh flew in
Sunday night after a six-weeks'
absence. South Vietnamese
foreign minister Tran van Lam
was due Monday morning.
The two foreign ministers
will have to remain on the
sidelines, at least initially, of
the secret talks between
Kissinger and Hanoi's Le Duc
Tho scheduled to resume
Tuesday to "complete" a
proposed cease fire agreement.
The Saigon government and
the Viet Cong have been
excluded from the talks which
have drafted and redrafted the
treaty text and its voluminous
annexes and protocols in
hundreds of hours of
bargaining since early October.
WORKED OVERTIME
American and North
Vietnamese experts, headed by
deputy assistant secretary of
state William Sullivan and
Hanoi's deputy foreign
minister Nguyen Co Thach,
worked overtime to complete
details of the drafts in time for
the new Kissinger-Tho session.
They met for four hours in a
Communist-owned villa at
suburban Gif-sur-Yvette, one
of the two sites of the top-level
negotiations. It was the first
time they had met on a
Sunday.
American military sources in
Saigon said there was a
possibility a cease-fire might
take effect next Sunday, Jan.
28. But neither Lam nor any of


the main participants in the
negotiations would make any
public prediction when the
agreement would be
concluded.
There was speculation in
Paris that a cease-fire
coinciding with the
forthcoming Feb. 3 TET or
New Year's holiday in Vietnam
might take effect even if the
draft peace agreement is not
yet signed or initialed by then.
Following reports of
"progress" by both sides, the
momentum toward peace
seemed irreversible, but
numerous details still remained
to be worked out and could
still cause unexpected delays.
One of the remaining points of
disagreement reportedly
concerned the way in which
Saigon and the Viet Cong were
to be mentioned as signatories,
and thus touched on one of the
fundamental issues of the war.
ISSUE IN DISPUTE
Throughout the
four-year-old peace talks,
Hanoi has sought to establish
that the Saigon government
and the Viet Cong's
administration hold equal
sovereignty in a divided South
Vietnam.
The United States and the
Saigon government have
consistently rejected this claim
and continue to reject it. Lam
repeated last week that Saigon
would refuse to sign any
document which mentioned
the 'provisional revolutionary
government' by name or gave it
equal recognition with the
Saigon government.
Communist sources said it
was out of the question that
the Viet Cong or Hanoi would
agree to designate the
Communist organization in
South Vietnam by any other
name. This left the
possibility that Saigon and the
Viet Cong might eventually
countersign on separate copies
of the treaty, each also bearing
the signature of the United
States and the North
Vietnamese government.
If the United States also
balks at signing a document
mentioning the 'provisional
revolutionary government,' the
possibility remained that the
two principal negotiating
partners would sign alone, in
the name of their unmentioned
respective South Vietnamese
allies.
Lam said in an interview
before leaving Saigon that he
could not predict when the
final treaty would be initialed
and signed, but he did not
discount the reports of a
tentative cease fire within the
next week.
"It depends," he said. "I
cannot tell you the details ...
"I'll see Dr. Kissinger
Monday."
Lam was expected to hold
his first discussions with
Kissinger immediately after the
presidential security adviser's
arrival, expected late Monday
evening.

- If the Nicaraguan National Guard

'there would have been riots,' Gen.

The Nicaraguan strongman

food sent to this country for
earthquake victims was not getting

Conrado had said he was visiting
in Nicaragua at the time of the

Guard trucks with relief supplies
cross the Costa Rican border. He
said the military 'definitely' was
stealing some supplies.
'If anyone took supplies to Costa

said, It was because the

food had to be taken to them from

for more self-reliance

By Marcia Chambers
NEW YORK (AP)- Four heavily
armed Black Muslims who had
vowed a fight to the death
surrendered to police Sunday four
hours after their nine hostages had
made a dramatic escape.
The surrender ended a 47.hour
siege of a Brooklyn sporting goods
store that had provided the gunmen
with a virtual arsenal of firepower.
One patrolman was shot dead in
a bloody confrontation with the
four young holdup men at the
outset of the prolonged police vigil
Friday night. Two others were
wounded, one critically.
One of the gunmen, critically
wounded with a bullet in his
abdomen, was carried out of John
and Al's Sports Inc. by two
confederates. The third walked
alongside the stretcher.
The gunmen placed the stretcher
on the street, then placed. their
hands on their heads before
plain-clothes men snapped on
handcuffs. In single file, they
walked to a nearby police
command post. They will be
charged today.
It was shortly before 5 p.m.
more than 47 anxious hours since
the holdup began, bringing
hundreds of policemen and
heckling onlookers to the scene in
the slum neighbourhood.
The four men, reportedly seeking
gums, not money, had definatly
taunted police to "Come and get
us." Pleas to negotiate often were
met with bursts of gunfire.
Relatives and police officials urged
the gunmen to talk from the
embattled shop in Brooklyn's
Williamsburg section.
ESCAPE
Police said the hostages, seven
men and two women, escaped to
freedom after their captors were
diverted to the roof, thinking
officers were about to launch an
assault. The captives scrambled up a
hidden stairwell and escaped to an
adjoining roof while the gunmen
and police exchanged shots.
A 29-year-old patrolman due to
become a sergeant died instantly in
the initial bloody confrontation
with the would-be holdup men at
about 6 p.m. Friday. Two other
patrolmen were wounded in the
fusillade, one critically.
"Please, no more bullets, no
more bloodshed," begged a mother
of one of the gunmen over a
bullhorn in a armoured personnel
carrier police had maneuvered
outside the bullet-shattered
storefront. She was identified as
Gloria Thomas, but police did not
give out names of the gunmen.
As the tank-like traded vehicle
lumbered toward John and Al's
Sports Inc., the voice of a
policeman boomed, "We want to
talk to you. We are not attacking.
We will come a little closer to talk
to you."
Hundreds of policemen took
protective cover beside their idling
radio cars. Sharpshooters had rifles
at the ready on nearby roofs in the
slum neighbourhood in the shadows
of elevated subway tracks.
The nine of 12 original hostages
appeared on the roof of the
two-storey sporting goods building
shortly before I p.m. They sprinted
for freedom down a ladder to the
roof of an adjoining furniture store,
police said.
The captives were taken to a
nearby police stationhouse, and a
hospital was alerted that some of
them might require medical aid.
EXCHANGE
In the interval of the siege, three
hostages had been released one
Saturday night in exchange for
treatment of a gunmen wounded in
the abdomen and reported spitting
up blood.
Dr. Thomas Matthew, a Black
neurosurgeon who with his nurse
treated the gunman's wound
Saturday night, reported that the
Desperados viewed themselves as
"soldiers in a holy crusade."
After his third visit inside the
store in 24 hours, he distributed
copies of a letter he said the
gunmen had written for the news
media. Written in longhand, it said:
"We are establishing "solidarity
with all Muslims and oppressed
peoples of the world ... we shall
fight these people until all religions
are for Allah and all oppression
ceases. We have nothing to lose and
we have victory or paradise to
gain."
Police gave this account of the
hostages escape.
The captives were on the second
floor when police began drilling
through a basement wall of the
adjacent furniture store. Hearing
the noise, the gunmen rushed to the
roof, mistakenly thinking police
were trying to gain entry from
above. Jerry Riccio, co-owner of
the store and a hostage,
remembered there was a hidden
stairwell covered with plasterboard
on the second floor.
The captives, four blacks and five
whites, ripped away the board and
all ran to the roof, where they
spotted police. Also on the roof
were the gunmen, who fired a few
shots but retreated as the police
advanced. No one appeared to have
been hit. The hostages then escaped
by ladder to the adjoining roof.

LAGOS, NIGERIA (AP)-A
Royal Jordanian airlines Boeing
707 carrying 202 Moslem pilgrims
from Jedda crashed on landing
Monday morning at Kano airport,
Nigeria Airways officials
announced.
The officials said "most" of the
passengers died but that there
were 'a few' survivors.
"It is feared most of them have
died," the spokesman said.
He said Nigeria Airways officials
are flying to Kano in northern
Nigeria for an on the spot
inspection of the crash to
determine how many were actually
killed.
If early reports of the death toll
are correct it will make the Lagos
crash the world's grimmest air
disaster.
The previous highest death toll
was in Russia last year when a
Soviet Aeroflot Ilyushin 62 hit the
ground near Moscow killing 172
people.
In July 1971 In Japan 162
people perished when an All
Nippon Boeing 727 crashed after a
mid-air collision with a jet fighter
whose pilot survived.
Communication links between
Kano, which is 730 miles north of
Lagos, were down Monday.
Nigeria Airways officials said
radio links with the airport in the
northern city were sad and, it was
unlikely a full report on the crash
would be available before Tuesday.
Airport officials said the plane's
captain and three crewmen were
reported among the survivors but
all were seriously injured.
The plane's manifest was
apparently burned in the crash,
making identification of the victims
virtually impossible.
Officials at Lagos Airport said
the plane was supposed to have
landed in Lagos but was diverted to
Kano because of bad weather.
Thousands of Nigerians have
poured into the tiny airport wailing
and shouting their grief over the
dead, most of whom were believed
to be Nigerians.
The airport is five miles from the
centre of Kano, an ancient Hausa
city famous for its links with
islamic culture and its traditional
market place.

Another broken promise

By ETIENNE DUPUCH
I RECENTLY told you the story of how my friend J. E
Williamson, the originator of undersea photography, brought
Howard Hughes to my office late one night.
Hughes, then a young man who was just becoming famous in
the world of aviation, wanted me to do him a favour.
When I agreed he volunteered the promise that the next time
he was doing anything big in aviation he would give me the first
break on the story.
I didn't ask him for this .... he volunteered the promise.
I never saw nor heard from Hughes again.
**********
This kind of story seems to interest readers of this column and
I enjoy writing about past events because it is a pleasant break
from unhappy political conflicts. And so I will tell you another
story of a human escapade.
One day I received a brief telegram from the Daily Express in
London telling me that a Mrs. So and So .... I have forgotten her
name .... was arriving in Nassau that day by the ss. Reina del
Pacifico. The Express wanted an interview.
This ship was too big to enter the harbour. Ordinarily she
would have anchored in the ocean north of Hog (Paradise) Island
lighthouse but there was a rage on the Bar that day and so she
had to proceed to the other side of the island for a safe anchorage
in Southwest Bay.
It was impossible for me to do this job because my old Ford
was in such a dilapidated condition that it couldn't make this trip
and I couldn't afford to hire a taxi for the journey.
Then I remembered that my friend Levi Gibson often met
ships for his employer, Sir Harold Christie of the Christie Real
Estate agency. I phoned Mr. Gibson. Yes, he was going to
Southwest Bay and he would gladly take me.
I then phoned my old friend Stanley Toogood, the island's
outstanding photographer. He had shared several journalistic
adventures with me.
Did he want another adventure?
He certainly did.


When we got to Southwest Bay there was no transportation to
the ship which was lying some distance from the shore. The tug
was already alongside and would soon be bringing the passengers
off. But I had to get aboard ship and locate this woman before
the passengers landed. It would be impossible after they got
ashore.
*********
A pilot boat was cruising a short distance off shore. I hailed the
people on this boat and asked them to give me a lift to the ship.
"Ten shillings," they called back.
Ten shillings was a pile of money for me back in those days,
but I agreed.

Aboard ship .... now it was my job to find a woman among
hundreds of passengers moving around on the deck. This ship
usually had a 700 to 800 passenger list.
I told Toogood to keep his camera concealed and not to walk
with me. I didn't know what kind of story this was going to be. If
it was a tricky one the sight of a camera might frighten my quarry
qway.
All I knew was that I was looking for a woman. Experience had
taught me that if this was a tricky story the subject would be a
lner.
- And so I started walking the deck with Toogood trailing me at
a safe distance.
I didn't go far before I saw a woman crouching in a cormer. It
Was obvious that she didn't want to talk with anyone. She seemed
afraid. I decided that this was probably the woman I sought.
SShe had her head bowed and so she didn't see my approach.
S"Good afternoon, Mrs. So and So," I said when I got near her.
; "Oh my God!", she exclaimed, turning as white as a sheet. I
vas afraid she was going to faint.
1 "You needn't be afraid," I assured her. "I want a story from
you, that's all," I said, showing her the telegram from the
Express.
S"Ill be at the Prince George Hotel," she said, her eyes bulging
with fear. "Phone me at 6 p.m."
I left her. As soon as we got around a bend in the ship I
signalled Toogood and he joined me.
"There's something funny about this story. This woman is
scared. Trail her and get a picture of her if anyone meets her at
the landing."
We then separated again. We went ashore on the tug with the
other passengers.
As soon as this woman landed a man walked by her, coming
from the opposite direction. She handed him her coat and they
said something to each other fast. The whole thing was done so
quickly that they hardly broke step.
But in that second Toogood's camera flashed. He had it. Don't
fool with Stanley Toogood. He is as quick as lightning. He never
fails.

I was sure Toogood had the -picture. And I had the
appointment for 6 p.m. Everything was clear and so Toogood and
I irove back to town with Levi Gibson feeling that we had
accomplished our mission. We were delayed at the pier because
Gibson was also meeting someone for Mr. Christie.
A funny thing happened. On the way back to town we passed
the man who had met the woman at the Southwest Bay landing.
He was in a carriage driving west near Fort Charlotte. He
looked worried .... even frightened, perhaps. The woman's coat
was still draped over his arm.
I then knew I was involved in a juicy mystery story.
I went back to my office. Precisely at 6 p.m. I phoned the
Prince George Hotel and asked for Mrs. So and So. I was
informed that no one by that name had registered there. Nor was
any such person expected.
I phoned again at 7-8-9, only to receive the same reply. I felt
then that the woman had slipped me.
******** **
It was about 10 o'clock when my phone rang. I was surprised
when the caller said: "This is Harcourt Malcolm speaking!".
Mr. Malcolm was the Speaker of the House of Assembly, the
uncrowned king of the town. He had never before phoned me.
And so I was surprised when he asked me whether I could come.
to his house on East Hill Street. I had never crossed the gate of
Mr. Malcolm in my life. And so I knew that this had to be

's Inn EDITOR The Tribune,
lessrs. I wonder how many people
hardly have noticed the two news
ulated items which have appeared in
ration your papers within the past
week namely the one "U.S.
em to wholesale prices index", and
'M.P.' "Nassau's cost of living
become increase".

tourism month, highest since March,
s an 1947. For the full year, the
purists. food price index soared 18.7
id pair per cent higher."
)wards Please note that this index is
affairs based on the "Wholesale cost".

it to To the best of my
knowledge the Bahamas cost of

more that we have scored a mere 5.5

level when the U.S. wholesale

something important.

When I arrived at Mr. Malcolm's house I found the woman I
had lost sitting in his parlour.
"Mrs. So and So is a client of mine," Mr. Malcolm, who was
the island's leading lawyer, told me. "She has been hiding from
you in a carriage in my back garden since early this afternoon.
She is afraid of you but I have assured her that she has nothing to
fear from you."
I agreed because by then I realized that I was involved in the
kind of personal story that I don't believe in .... hunting down a
prominent person to make a juicy scandalous story for a
newspaper.
"Will you take her to the Prince George Hotel for me?", he
asked. "I have made a reservation there for her. You can talk to
her on the way but try and be kind to her. This woman has a
problem. I'm sure you'll understand," he said, gently ushering
both of us out of his house.
And so I drove her to the Prince George in my broken down
old Ford and got her registered. She was silent all the way.
"I'm exhausted," the woman said turning imploring eyes on
me. "Do you mind if we don't talk until tomorrow morning. Say
at 10 o'clock?"
I was in no hurry because I had decided by now that I wasn't
going to do the story.
I went across the square to the Telegraph Office and sent a
garbled report to the Express.... something they could not use
and for which I got a "rocket" from the Editor in the next mail.
This escapade had cost me ten shillings I couldn't afford and a
lot of time but that's a part of life.

I phoned Toogood. He had a picture. I told him it was urgent.
He said he would let me have it by 8 o'clock in the morning.
It turned out to be a very remarkable picture. Toogood got
them at the moment the woman transferr-d her coat to the man.
It was like passing the stick in a relay race. They were not even
looking at each other. He got the coat and they were both moving
in opposite directions at the same moment.
When I met this woman on the eastern patio of the hotel at 10
a.m. she seemed more relaxed.
"I have a picture for you," I told her laughing.
She caught her breath sharply and sagged down in her chair. It
was as though I had stabbed her. Once again, I thought she was
going to faint.
Her hands were trembling when I handed her the picture.
"Oh God!", she exclaimed when she saw the picture. And then
she snatched for her purse from which she took a cheque book
and a pen.
"How much?", she asked as she prepared to write a cheque. By
this time her eyes were wild and her cheeks were flushed. This
woman was desperate.
I took the picture from her and tore it to strands and then
threw the scraps into the sea. This spot was then open water. It
was before the Royal Bank of Canada had reclaimed this narrow
cut and made it into land for an extension of its premises.
"Madam," I said to her after returning to my seat beside her.
"I am not that kind of a journalist. Now would you like to tell
me your story?"
I had decided that I wouldn't hound this woman. Mr. Malcolm
had asked me to be kind and I was trying to prove to her that
even a journalist could be chivalrous.
"I am in deep trouble, Mr. Dupuch," she said. "You are very
kind. Right now I feel too sick to talk. I must lie down for
awhile. Do you mind? Come back after lunch. I'll he all right by
then. But I want to tell you," she said, taking my hand in hers
and holding it warmly, "I'll never forget your kindness. I will
repay you," she promised.
I went back to the Prince George after lunch only to find that
the woman had checked out immediately after I left. By that
time she had already flown to Miami.
I never heard from her again.
But I wasn't sorry because I don't believe in the kind of
scandal stories on which some newspapers thrive.

Who was this woman?
Mr. Malcolm told me her story when I next saw him in the
House.
She was married to a wealthy and very powerful diplomat in
Europe. He didn't call his name and I didn't ask him as I felt that
this might be a professional secret.
The man she met at Southwest Bay was her former husband.
Theirs had been a divorce of convenience. They were still in love.
She had come here to buy a small island in the Bahamas which
she and her lover could use from time to time as a private
rendezvous on her rich husband's money.
And so the story of life unfolds.

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Lucky the child who knows his father. It's a comfort to any
child when he is told that he look. like his father.
DUPUCH.


18.7 per cent. this particularly
in view of the fact that the
majority of our food is
imported from the U.S.
True, the methods of
working the indices might vary
somewhat but if we were to


cut the U.S. rise in halt we can
still feel content that we are
doing all we can to keep the
cost of living within the
bounds of comparative
increases abroad.

WHAT JUSTICE?


ED)ITOR, The Tribune,
Could you kindly grant me
the space for the publication of
this item?
IS capital punishment a
form of justice? It does not
effect restoration on the one
hand, nor does it benefit the
executed criminal on the other.
Administration of justice that
ends in death, then, can only
be seen to be one-sided in
favour of society.
In what way does society
benefit from capital
punishment? It may be argued
that since morals cannot be
legislated, society without
some form of deterent is at the
mercy of the criminal mind.
Statistics show that neither
does capital punishment
prevent, nor does its abolition
produce an increase in the ratio
of capital crimes. Society does
not solve its problem of crime
by seeking to prevent the
effects of chains of
circumstances; it does so by
eliminating the ca s.
Capital punishment says by
implication that since the


individual, as a result of a
certain type of exposure and
psychological development, is
non-conformity with certain of
society's laws and/or to certain
human rights and human
dignity such a person must be
eliminated instead of e
social causes that nutered such
psychological development. As
such, capital punishment is
seen to accomplish nothing.
Justice, in order to be
justice, must address itself to
the elimination of causes
because if it is purely punitive
or even if it is so inclined
it is in danger of operating in
the realm of vengeance.
The time for serious
consideration and abolition of
capital punishment is now.

Look out, this guy


isn't your style

By Abigail Van Buren
S1t7M f CMC Trt,-. V. NeW $Sy., Im.
DEAR ABBY: I am an 18-year-old girl who has never
had a real date. I have been fixed up a tew times, but it'll
never panned out.
Well, this one guy started to come over and hanj
around. He's sort of weird. He's 24, not bad looking, an
does construction work. He comes here and keeps looking
at my mother. She is a widow, 39 years old, and is a nic
looking woman, but she has her own friends and isn'
interested in this kid. He keeps making cracks, like, "Olde
women are more experienced."
I don't know what to make of him. My mother says
should encourage him a little, but I don't believe in leading
a guy on unless I intend to put out, which I will not d(
because I believe in God and virtue and I don't want to b
shopworn by the time I'm married.
So what do you suggest? INEXPERIENCE]
DEAR INEXPERIENCED: The kind of experience '
this weirdo is looking for is definitely not your style. Stel
to your principles and don't waste any more time with th
likes of him. You're more apt to find your type of fellow
hanging around church. Seek, and ye shall find!

DEAR ABBY: My life is a nightmare with my jealou
husband. We have tried everything from marriage counsel
lors to psychiatry, but to no avail.
He does not trust me out of his sight and it is all s
foolish because I have no interest in any other man an
never have had.
My only hope seems to be a chastity belt. Can yo
please tell me where to send for one? I am 53 and m
husband is 70 and he has been like this for the last three
years.
This is a serious request. Please rush your answer
Whatever the price, it will be worth it. Thank you.
GOING CRAZY IN BLUE EARTH, MINI
DEAR GOING: The only chastity belts I have eve
seen are in museums.

DEAR ABBY: I am a single girl, 24 years old, an
people are always telling me how beautiful I am, main]
because I have a good figure. [I'm 36-25-361. No single gi
wants to pal around with me because if a guy is anywhere
around, I'm the one who gets the attention. Married women
don't trust me either altho I've never dated a married ma
in my life.
Abby, what I need is a man, but a guy takes one loo
at me and figures with all I've got going for me I mu
have been with lots of guys. [I've been with a few, but n
that many].
I am so lonesome, you wouldn't believe it. So where d
I look for friends? Not at work. The females are so Jealo
they would tear me apart like wolves. Not at bars becau
men get the impression that I'm good for a one-night star
and that's not what I want. I'm going crazy, I need friend

DEAR LONELY: You seem much too preoccupied with
your looks. Beauty has never been a liability, so I girls
mistrust you and men misjudge you, you'd better take a
good long look at your packaging. If you look, dress and
act like a lady with all you have going for you, you will be
the busiest gal in town, not the lonelest.

DEAR ABBY: Please print this for the nurses who
work in obstetrics. I just had my fourth baby, and all four
times I was fully conscious. The only time a nurse spoke to
me was to give me an order, "Mother, drink this! Mother,
turn over! Mother, bear down!" Meanwhile, the nurses are
talking to each other. They babble endlessly about the cute
new intern, what they did last weekend and the latest
hospital gossip. No one bothered to say a kind word to me,
and needless to say I kept praying that my doctor would
arrive before my baby did.
Women in labor are not deaf, and at a time like that
they desperately need a few comforting words and some
friendly conversation.
I hope you will print my letter because many of my
friends have told me that the same thing happened to
them. NEW MOTHER
DEAR MOTHER: Consider it done. Al right, nurses
Talk to the mother, not to each other

DEAR ABBY: Before my husband and I met, he got a
married woman pregnant and she had his child-a boy.
My husband and I have a daughter. How is our daugh-
ter related to that boy my husband fathered?
Would you recommend the offspring be told they have
the same father? They go to the same school, and are now
teen-agers, and there is a possibility of a budding romance.
All the relations know about this mess.
OMAHA MIXUP
DEAR OMAHA: They are half brother sat sister,
which closer than the law allows for marriage. I
wouldn't te them they have the same fatr unless I felt t
were positively necessary. The "forbddea" aspect of sneh
a romance might enhance It.

causing death of his rival
SIDNEY DORSETT
A SUPREME COURT JURY in the manslaughter trial of 33-year-old Grand Cay, Abaco
carpenter Edward Rolle, accused of causing the death of his rival Joseph John, a Haitian, Friday
afternoon returned a not guilty verdict. The decision was unanimous.


The trial ended in its second
day following the evidence of
star prosecution witness
Christine Althea Hield, 18,
who told the court that Rolle
was caught sleuthing by her
boyfriend, John, as they
returned home from
Emancipation Day festivities at
neighboring Walker's Cay at 1
a.m. on August 8 last year.
Rolle was her former lover,
she said. John, her lover for
three months, ran up to Rolle
and asked him what he was
following them for. She said
she heard the report of a gun
come from Rolle's direction as
her boyfriend approached him.
Miss Heild who was nervous
throughout her testimony said
the accused also known as
"Bailey," had been her
suitor for three years. She gave
him up for Haitian John, who
had shown signs of intending
to make her his wife.
They were engaged, she said,
and told the court that she had
broken relations with the
accused for about three


OF


months before the incident.
The deceased, also a Grand
Cay resident, died from
"cereberal oedema and
contusion," Princess Margaret
Hospital Dr. Joan Margaret
Read said in her evidence
yesterday.
His injunes, caused by severe
blows to the head and the
application of force to the
chest, did not include any of
gunshot or bullets, Dr. Read
testified.
Prosecution counsel Mrs.
Bostwick told jurors that Rolle
was responsible for causing the
fight. Although there were no
allegations on the part of the
Crown that he intended to kill
John, she said the gun, carried
by the accused in his pocket,
was meant to frighten the
deceased.
She also termed him an
"unusual Bahamian" who,
having considered himself a
dashing young lover felt no
remorse at having his girlfriend
taken away by John, "a
Haitian", when he was absent
from the island for three
weeks.
Other medical evidence
showed that Rolle's lower lip
had been servered completely.
District Medical Officer for
Grand Bahama, Dr. Robert
Clement told the court that he
was unable to treat Rolle
because of limited facilities
when he was brought to him
with part of his lower left lip
bitten off.
He referred him to the
Princess Margaret Hospital, Dr.
Clements said, because he
considered the injury serious.
Mr. James Sands, medical
technologist, said that clothing
of the accused and the
deceased had bloodstains on
them. It was blood similar to
that of the deceased, he said.
Rolle, separated and
intending to obtain a divorce
from his first wife at Freeport.
said Thursday tnat he tirst saw

*Hi W ^


__________________________________________________________U ________


Miss Hield at a party at
Walker's Cay on August 7
while she sat one table away
from John.
Also with the pair was a
friend, Barbara Jean. He said
that he was watching John and
Miss Heild although he said
nothing to her. She told him
earlier that she did not love
John so he had nothing to
worry about, he said.
Leaving the party before
them, he decided to watch and
see if John would take her
home. He hid in an old house
near the street on Grand Cay
and they passed by with
Barbara Jean but a few minutes
later, was seen coming back
without her, he said.
When they turned back, he
was standing in the road and
able to be seen by them, he
said. Being caught sleuthing, he
did not run because it was too
late and so he stood where he
was.
He said that John ran up to
him and while asking him his
reason for following, grabbed
him at the neck. He was
injured extensively on the neck
from the deceased's effort to
choke him as they fought and
also had a bitten thumb and a
bump on his head.
His evidence of extensive
abrasions around the neck was
consistent with "an attempt to
choke", Dr. Clements said in
his evidence. The doctor also
confirmed the bitten finger and
the bruise at the top of the
accused's head.
He said he did not have a
gun to frighten the deceased
with, but was taking it home
for safe-keeping.
He said he did not intend
killing the deceased, but during
the fight, his lip was bitten by
John who would not let got of
it. Struggling to pull himself
loose, his head knocked into

GENERAL TENDENCIES: You wisely start
tbh new week on a new note in which you can
take your most expansive ventures and reduce them to an
understanding so they are very successful. You find it is to
your advantage now to deal directly with highly placed
persons. Use tact and diplomacy.
ARIES (Mar. 21 to Apr. 19) A higher-up is analyzing greatly
the way you are performing your work, so be sure to meet the
test and gain big benefits therefrom. Find the right co-workers
to assist you. Relax tonight.
TAURUS (Apr. 20 to May 20) Plan to engage in the kind of
recreations that please you during spare time. Don't neglect
the romantic side of life. Try not to be aggressive when you
are in the wrong or you get into trouble.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 21) Talk over with kin how to
make your lives happier and more affluent. You find that
teamwork can work miracles. Put fundamental affairs in good
order. The evening is fine for entertainment.
MOON CHILDREN (June 22 to July 21) Plan a meeting
with associates and discuss moot points so that you come to a
better understanding. Use good judgment. Contact others who
can give the backing you need for your projects.
LEO (July 22 to Aug. 21) You want to add to present
income and can do so now, but don't neglect to pay those bills
which are easy for you to do. Listen to ideas which a
co-worker expresses. You can gain a great deal from them.
VIRGO (Aug. 22 to Sept. 22) This can be a most enjoyable
day for you if you get into the recreational activities you like
instead of just thinking about them. The social side of life can
bring real advancement. Dress well.
LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Kin can best advise you on
how to gain your cherished aims Experts in business should be
consulted for ideas to increase your income. Buy furnishings
needed at home. Happiness can be yours.

together with associates, either for business or recreation.
Social gatherings are fine for finding the extra support you
need. Avoid one who bores you. Act wisely.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Show one in high
position that you have wise and practical ideas and you soon
benefit. Working efficiently at your job is acknowledged by
your boss. Avoid one who wants to impede your progress.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 20) While your own ideas are
good, you can also get others to give you theirs which are
practical and to your advantage. Make this a very productive
day. Appreciate favors from newcomers.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19) You have worries that
need to be discussed with experts and then your problems
clear up nicely. Show more devotion to mate. Avoid one who
wants to break up this important relationship.
PISCES (Feb. 20 to Mar. 20) Get together with allies at
whatever is most important to you at this time. Gatherings for
social and business reasons are especially good now. Plan to be
more successful in the near future.
IF YOUR CHILD IS BORN TODAY ... he or she will be
one of those clever young people who will easily understand
what is going on, and will be a fine conversationalist at an
early age, because of the innate intelligence here. An ideal
chart for the special investigator, the researcher and the
electronics engineer. Give good ethical and religious training to
offset tendency to be too materialistic.
"The Stars impel, they do not compel." What you make of
your life is largely up to YOU!

though closely guarded, pops an eighteen-footer. Johnson
scored 13 for Prince Will who went down 61-52 to St.
John's on Friday. Photo: RICKEY WELLS


SACers remain unbeaten in


first week of competition
SENIOR BOYS BASKETBALL CHAMPIONS St. Augustine's College
are making quite an impressive defence of their Eastern Division title as
they held fast against L. W. Young and Queen's College defeating them
65-32 and 49-29 respectively during the first week of competition.


Also defending Inter-School
Champions the Sacers see a tough
defence ahead as Aquinas College
Aces, St. John's College and
defending champions Prince
Williams High battle it out in the
Western Division.
Although Prince Will (1 1) was
surpassed 61-52 on Friday, it was
not an easy win for St. John's who
for more than half the game were
muddled as Prince Will known
for it's defence never allowed St.
John's to get more than four ahead.
To rebut a full-forced offensive
St. John's can be quite a taxing
duty and it showed on Prince Will
as they moved into the final of the
third quarter, with St. John's
holding a 41-33 lead.
Though consistent in his efforts,
Lynhurst Johnson's attempts to
stop St. John's were to no avail.
Aquinas Aces (2-0), meeting no
real difficulty yet, found Adderley
High good practice for Government
High whom they beat 68-56 on
Wednesday. Aquinas, showing great
form under the coaching of Gerry
Harper, moved the ball effectively
through the less experienced
Adderley High and completely
wiped out their meagre defence in a
71-23 victory during their first
game on January 15.
It is now left to R. M. Bailey and
St. Annes College to trip St.
Augustine's in this first round of
competition. Bailey High put their
force to the test this afternoon
when they take on the Sacers at St.
Augustine's College. St. Anne's will
have their chance on Wednesday.
Other games in the Eastern
Division competition this afternoon
see St. Anne's visiting Queen's
College while the rookie team of
the league L. W. Young, scheduled
to play Robinson Road High who
dropped out of the competition --
will get a bye.
In Western Division competition
this afternoon, Adderley High meet
St. John's College at the Southern


Recreation Grounds; Government
High hosts C. C. Sweeting High; aind
Prince William High will vie for the
upset when they take on Aquinas
Aces at the Garfunkel Auditorium
at 7:30 tonight.

never been more ready than 1
am for this fight. Then I'll talk
about Clay."
The titleholder refuses to
use Clay's Muslim name and he
spits every time he refers to the
popular former champions,
who claims he won the "Fight
of the Century" on March 8,
1971.
The day before the
showdown, Foreman appeared
loose and confident, saying,
"Look at the records. Most
heavyweight champions don't
last more than two or three
years. Frazier has had his day
Now it's my turn. I will win."
FRAZIER FAVOURITE
Las Vegas oddsmakers have
made the 29-year-old
champion a 3 1/2-1 favourite
over the 24-year-old challenger,
who, like Frazier, is a former
Olympic gold medalist and is
unbeaten in his pro career.
Still, nobody knows for
sure. Foreman is an enigma. As
a pro, he has never been
floored and ringsiders wonder
if he has the fiber to come off
the deck and keep fighting.
It's certain to be a
rough-and-tumble physical
brawl, unlikely to go the

Randy Rodgers scores vital equalizer


15-round limit. Frazier is a
punishing, bore-in slugger, a
black Rocky Marciano, who
disdains personal injury to
mete out punishment to his
foes. Foreman is a powerful
giant with none of Ali's grace
and speed. He doesn't swing
arms, he swings wagon tongues.
Fight time is 0315 gmt
(Tuesday), and the place is the
outdoor National Stadium, an
oval built for soccer and
cycling. The arena can
accommodate 43,000 for
losing but no more than
32,000 are expected, half of
them paying 5/ American
dollars for bleacher seats.
Ringside positions range up to
110 dollars.
The event is sponsored by
the Jamaican government,
working through an
organization known as
National Sports Limited, which
is expected to lose about a
half-million dollars. However,
Jamaica is writing the deficit
off to the promotion of
tourism.


AFC WIN PRO BOWL
DALLAS (Al') The American
Conference All-Stars turned the
running of Buffalo's O. J. Simpson
and the National Conference's poor
kick coverage into a 33-28 Pro
Bowl victory Sunday, giving the
AFC a sweep of National Football
League honors for the season.
Simpson, a four-year veteran
playing in his first Pro Bowl, scored
on a seven-yard touchdown run and
rushed for record 112 yards as the
AFC rallied from a 14-0
first-quarter deficit to edge the
older league.

McAlpine victory would have been
the result.
Tony Hodgson put the Clan in
the lead some 30 minutes into the
second half, whereupon the Clan
tore mercilessly into the Tropigas
defence and Simpson minutes after
Hodgson's goal having broken
through on the right, leaving several
Tropigas players staggering in his
wake, blasted the ball against the
upper post from 5 yards this
chance should have clinched the
match for the Clan.
VITAL POINT
With ten minutes of the game
remaining Tropigas rallied and rose
gallantly from the canvass. Then
following a throw in from the left
side of the field skipper Randy
Rodgers calmly chipped a loose ball
from twenty yards over the
McAlpine defence into the top of
the net to give his team that vital
point.
For the first 30 minutes of the
first half Tropigas, looked the more
dangerous of the two sides,
although the Clan did have several
chances of scoring.
Love, Rodgers and Turner all had
excellent games for Tropigs with
Rodgers being particularly
outstanding in mid-field, tackling
firmly and distributing the ball with
masterly precision.
In the 40th minute Rodgers
switching the play from the left
hand side of the field with superb
pass of some 30 yards to the right
flank found Grey unmarked with
lots of time to spare. But a fine save
by Grimsby prevented the League
leaders from taking the lead
LOT OF TROUBLE
Turner caused a lot of trouble to
the Clan's defence with ,frequent
bursts down the left flank resulting
in numerous crosses which passed
tantalisingly across the McAlpine
box.


However, the Clan really got into
top gear towards the end of the
first half and Tropigas suddenly
found themselves very much on the
receiving end.
Rodgers was forced to handle the
ball during another McAlpine raid
just before the half-time whistle
sounded for which the referee
awarded a direct free kick. Stanham
took the kick which rebounded off
the Tropigas defence to the right,
whereupon Stanham sent over a
high cross which was headed into
the goal by John Williams amidst
much confusion.
The first 15 minutes of the
second half were rather scrappy
with the ball see-sawing from end
to end. Shortly after the second
half began a fight broke out
between Stanham and Love
which seemed to upset
the rhythm of the game for a while
until McAlpine settled down and
began to dominate.
Goodger and Lever both missed
chances but Hodgson made no
mistake when the ball bounced
unexpectedly high over the
Tropigas defenders from a cross and
landed at his feet.
Shortly after this Simpson
should have made it 3-1 to
McAlpine but his shot struck the
woodwork from S yards.
Tropigas then rallied in splendid
fashion and Brian Caple brought on
for Bob Elliot, who had had a sadly
anonymous game, scored in a
goalmouth scramble Rodgers then
equalized when he scored from 20
yards out and shortly after this
Tropigas might well have scored
again when Turner burst through
from the right from a throw-in but
his shot went far too high.
In the other match of the
afternoon Red Lion drew 3-3 with
St. Georges.

TROPIGAS SKIPPER. Randy
Rodgers foiled McAlpine's bid to
regain their position at the top of
the League table with a superbly
taken 87 minute goal to make the
final score 2-2 in yesterday's
Sunday Soccer League match at
Clifford Park.
With one point from this game,
Tropigas maintain their position at
the top of the League table with I I
points from seven games whilst
McAlpine, in hot pursuit, have nine
points with a game in hand.
Last year's League Champions,
McAlpine certainly showed that
they are not going to relinquish
their crown without putting up a
good fight. In a devastating spell of
15 minutes in the second half
yesterday their forwards shoot
waves of alarm through the
Tropigas box and if they had taken
the chances created in this spell, a


to foil McAlpine win
