ACCORD AGREED


contract to build schools


By NICKI KELLY
MIAMI-BASED PANELFAB INTERNATIONAL CORPORATION has been awarded the contract to build the
Ministry of Education's two new junior high schools as well as 22 Out Island schools and teachers' cottages planned
on the basis of an $11 million loan from the Export-Import Bank of Washington.


The Bahamas government
received confirmation of the
loan this month after being
turned down four months ago.
It is understood that one of
the reasons for the bank's
initial reluctance was this


government's insistence on
using Panelfab as the
contractor. What made the
Ex-Im Bank change its mind is
not known.
Announcement that
Panelfab had won the contract


was made by the company last
Thursday and reported in The
Miami Herald Friday.
The Herald said the project
would be in two phases. In the
first, Panelfab will build and
furnish 22 small schools and


GRAND BAHAMA Burial of 'world record organ

CUT OFF FROM player' George Bethel Sunday

OUTSIDE WORLD


GRAND BAHAMA has been
completely cut off from
telephone communication with
the outside world since early
Monday evening, and it is
"impossible to say" how long
it will be before
communications are restored.
However, urgent messages
can be sent to and received
from Grand Bahama via
telegraph and telex, a
spokesman for the Bahamas
telecommunicationss Cor-
poration said.
The break in communi-
cations is the result of a fault
in the computerised "nerve
centre" of switching
equipment at BaTelCo's
newly-operational technical
centre at Eight Mile Rock,
Grand Bahama.
The exact nature of the fault
is not yet known, and
according to BaTelCo public
relations director Errol Leach,
repairs could be made "in half
an hour or in a day. It's
impossible to say."
Mr. Leach described the
problem as another of
BaTelCo's "growing pains".
TRANSFERRED
It was only just after
midnight Saturday that
switching duties were
transferred from Freeport to
the new equipment at Eight
Mile Rock.
The Eight Mile Rock
technical centre was built as
part of BaTelCo's expansion
programme, which included
the installation of a submarine
telephone cable between
Florida, Grand Bahama and
New Providence.
The cable, laid in September
and officially commissioned in
early December last year, is in
no way involved in the present
difficulties, Mr. Leach said.
The Tribune learned of the
problems this morning when an
attempt was made to place a
call to the Freeport office of
the Bahamas Hotel and
Catering Workers' Union.
Instead of getting the union,
The Tribune was somehow
connected with the Eight Mile
Rock technical centre.
FAILURE
Subsequent investigations
revealed the nature of the
trouble, and official
confirmation came in the form
of a BaTelCo press release this
morning.
The release said:
"Due to equipment failure
at the Eight Mile Rock
technical centre, the public is
requested not to place long
distance calls into or out of
Grand Bahama for the time
being.
"Urgent messages may be
transmitted by telex or
telegraph.
"The Corporation is making
every effort to re-establist
communications at the earliest
opportunity and apologises for
any inconvenience caused."

Mr. Bethel had suffered a
heart condition for some time.
Although he remained
*officially the organist for St.
Patrick's until the time of his
death, as his health failed he
became "an organist with an
assistant." He last played for
his church sometime in July.

2 WITNESSES FAIL

TO APPEAR, SO

CASE IS ADJOURNED
TIHE NON-APPEARANCE
this morning of two
prosecution witnesses in the
Supreme Court trial of
Leonard Jarvis, 25, a Nassau
Street boiler supervisor, caused
the case to be adjourned until
January 31.
Jarvis, in court with his
attorneys, is charged with
attempted murder, possession
of a firearm with intent and
the use of deadly means of
harm against the two witnesses
Free National Movement
Party campaign workers
prior to last year's elections.
The adjournment was called
following the non-appearance
of Judy Miller. 23, and Barry
Thompson, alleged to have
been involved in an incident
with Jarvis on tIhe early
morning of September 5.
Jurors were dismissed from
court until Thursday, following
the witnesses' failure to appear
in court this morning.
Jarvis, represented by
attorneys Perry Christie and
!:ubert Ingraham was allowed
an extension of his bail until
January 31.
He is accused of attempting
to murder Mr. Thompson and
using a .20-gauge shotgun to
put him and Miss Miller in fear.
The case, to be heard before
Sir Gordon should it open
Thursday. will be prosecuted
by Crown Counsel. Fred
Waterman of Barbados.
Four prosecution witnesses.
apart from Miss Miller and Mr.
Thompson are to testify in the
trial. No reason has been given
for the absence of the two
witnesses in court today.


gentleman will be buried at
in services held at the church in
the age of 14.
On Easter Sunday in April,
1967 he completed 70
"non-stop" years at the
church's organ. Bishop Bernard
Markham, then Bishop of
Nassau and the Bahamas, wrote
him a letter of congratulations,
which was read at the morning
service and the congregation
presented himwith a gift.
Bishop Markham noted at
the time that to play the same
organ for 70 years in the same
church must have been
something of a world record.
George Bethel became
interested in the organ when he
was a youngboy. He received
an old time collapsible organ
that fitted into a two foot by
two foot box. He had very
little formal training apart
from one year of piano lessons
from a teacher visiting from
Nassau. At 14 years he took
over the job of church organist
and held it for 75 years
without pay.
Sir Asa Pritchard today
described his wife's second
cousin as "a lovable person."
Known as "Mr. George, all
people of every class looked up
to him as an example."
His was "a quiet, high
standard way of life," Sir Asa
said. "lie was congenial and
loved by everyone. He helped a
lot of people to the extent of
his finances."
lie came from a family of
pineapple farmers who owned
extensive estates at Eleuthera.
However, the pineapple
industry had died out when he
was still a child.
UNIQUE
lHe operated a small grocery
shop at Governor's larbour,
which was described as unique.
"He sat in an armchair and
everyone just helped
themselves," laughed Sir Asai.
"llis shop must have been the
pioneer in self service.
Whenever a customer canie
into his shop he would say:
'There it is you can get what
you want' and kept right on
reading his book."
Mr. Bethel had many close
friends in Nassau and abroad.
Governors Harbour families
who settled in Miami looked
forward every year to his
summer visits.

Ilis daughter has requested
that those who would prefer
should send a donation to the
Organ Repair Fund, instead of
flowers. The organ is the one
on which Mr. Bethel played
and is now about 80 vears old.

school additions throughout
the Bahamas. In the second it
will build two large schools in
Nassau (the junior schools) and
several dozen teachers' housing
units throughout the islands.
Panelfab said it would
"fabricate a substantial
percentage of the building
panels" at its North Miami
plant.
ADDITION
At the time he moved for
legislative approval of the loan
in August 1972, Finance
Minister Carlton Francis
explained that there were
already 47,000 pupils of school
age on the rolls, and provision
would have to be made for an
additional 2 to 3,000 in
September of that year.
Among the more pressing
areas requiring school facilities,
he said, were Eight Mile Rock,
Freeport and West End, Grand
Bahama.
There was also need for
additional space to
accommodate the 15-1800
secondary level students who
would be increasing the 1972
school population.
Listed among the top
educational priorities were the
two 1,000-pupil junior high
schools, the first to be built on
Bernard Road at Carmichael
and Baillou Hill Roads.
Another pressure area was in
the vicinity of the Yellow
Elder Housing division, Phase
II.
In total, Mr. Francis said,
the expansion programme
would utilize 25 different sites.
DIFFICULTIES
As far back as June 1972,
The Tribune pointed out that
the Ministry of Education had
run into difficulties in its
choice of material for the two
new junior high schools and
that there appeared to be an
apparent hold-up in the
advance that was to be made
by the Ex-lm Bank.
While the Ministry insisted
the two schools would be
ready for September, there was
no evidence of activity on
either site beyond clearance of
the land area.
In the latter part of June,
Education permanent secretary
Hugh Sands issued a detailed
scheme regarding student
allocation for the fall, still
including the two secondary
schools in the plan.
in August 28, the Ministry
was forced to admit the
buildings would not be ready
in time and announced
alternate arrangements for
students who were to have
gone to these schools.
Those destined for S. C.
McPherson on Carmichael
Road went to the old campus
of Jordan/Prince Williams.
Those slated for L. W. Young
were split between the
auditoriums of C. I. Gibson
and Donald Davis Secondary.
UNSATISFACTORY
The arrangement proved
wholly unsatisfactory both for
teachers and students. The
Ministry then proposed a shift
system between students of C.
I. (;ibson and L. W. Young but
was firmly opposed by the
Teachers Union.
The union disclosed it had
made alternate suggestions that
would have temporarily housed
L. W. Young in one of the
pri ary schools without
disrupting the educational
system of both high schools.
The union argued that some
primary schools were only half
filled, while there had been no
construction on the secondary
level for three years.
Following its public
statement on the condition of
the two schools, the union was
reportedly assured by
Education Minister Livingston
Coakley that the students of L.
W. Young would be housed for
the time being in the new E. P.
Roberts primary school when
it was completed at Easter.

FOLLOWING MONTH'S OF DELAY, work has finally begun on construction of the
1,000-pupil W. L. Young Junior High School which was to have opened last September.
Located at Bernard Road, the school is part of an $11 million school expansion package
being financed by a loan from the Export-Import Bank of Washington. Foundations are
being prepared at the site.

COST OF LIVING
A 3.2 per cent increase in
the cost of clothing and
footwear has been the major
contributor to the 0.76 per
cent cost of living increase
between November and
December last year.
Revised Price Index figures
released today by the
Department of Statistics show
a rise of 0.8 of a point or 0.76
per cent to 105.8 in December

FOOD UP
According to the Index,
food increased by 1.1 per cent
to 106.7 in December from

change of 1.2 added 0.4 to the
overall increase of 0.8 points
from November to December.
The housing index advanced
1.1 points to 104.4 in
December from 103.3 in
December to register a 1.06%
increase.
Principal price increases
were unfurnished rentals up
1.2 points, sewing machine .35
of a point, and household

The Transport index moved
down 2.6 per cent or 2.7
points to 102.3 in December
from 105.0 in November.

restaurant meals and drinks
edged down by .1 of a point.
The other goods and services

per cent over November's
index of 104.3. Indicators
recording increases were school

Port Director Leon Flowers
told The Tribune late Monday
that he has obtained "certain
new information" on the
barge. The Port Director said
he planned to pass the
information on to Permanent
Secretary to the Ministry
Hartis Thompson.
He suggested The Tribune
delay contacting Mr.
Thompson until today, to give
the Permanent Secretary an
opportunity to consider the
new information.
Contacted this morning Mr.
Thompson said he had not yet
been in touch with Mr.
Flowers, and said he would
have to consult the Minister,
Darrel E. Rolle, M. P. before
announcing any decision. He
said The Tribune should
contact him again later in the
week.
The degree of danger the
sunken barge represents for
mariners may have increased
recently, in the light of reports
that a warning beacon lamp
placed on the submerged hull
has been missing for about a
week, leaving the wreck
unmarked.
The barge, owned by Mr.
Rick Penn, was valued at
$105,000.

The crane operator is said to
have dropped the crane's
bucket into the water in an
effort to control the barge's
drift in the channel's swift
current.
However, the barge drifted
over the bucket's cable and as a
result capsized.
The four crewmen were
rescued by passing boaters.
The vessel was not insured
and reportedly not registered.
Mr. Flowers initially
reported that the barge was not
a navigational hazard, because
it was not in the middle of the
channel, but to one side.
PARTIAL HAZARD
More than a month after the
sinking, on July 25, Mr.
Flowers acknowledged that the
wreck was a "partial hazard,"
and advised mariners to avoid
the Narrows and instead enter
Nassau harbour through the
northwestern entrance at the
western end of Paradise Island.
On August 23 Mr. Flowers
said that following numerous
complaints by mariners it had
been decided to place a
warning light on the hull of the
i rge. The light was installed
before the end of August.
It is now reported that the
light is no longer there.
Mr. Flowers said last year
that Mr. Penn was responsible
for moving the wreck. lie said
if the owner failed to remove
it within a "reasonable" time
Government would have it
removed and would bill Mr.
Penn for the costs. The barge
has been in the channel for
seven months.

Kissinger and Hanoi's Le Duc
Tho initialed a Vietnam peace
agreement Tuesday shortly
before Kissinger flew back to
Washington to report to

presumably to announce the
initialling of the Vietnam peace
agreement.
In m making the
announcement, press secretary
Ronald L. Ziegler said only
that Nixon would report on
the status of negotiations.
The obvious importance of
the presidential address was
underscored by a Ziegler
announcement that Nixon will
meet with the entire Cabinet at
8 p.m. and the five top
Democratic and Republican
leaders of Congress at 9 p.m.
An expanded bipartisan
Congressional meeting will be
held at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday.
The importance Nixon

evident as Ziegler told
newsmen there would be no
customary advance distribution
of a prepared text.
The President, who
requested broadcast time from
the major TV and radio
networks, will speak from the
Oval office of the White House.
Congressional leaders invited

REYKJAVIK, ICELAND (AP)- Five thousand persons have been
evacuated from a North Atlantic island u a volcano erupted. The volcano
erupted with fury on the land of Heymaey off the coast ot Iceland.
Icelandic authorities quickly organized a rescue armada of ships and

ONASSIS' ONLY SON DIES AFTER CRASH
ATHENS, Jan. 23 (AP)- Alexandros Onaseis, 24-year-old only son of'
the Greek shipping magnate, died this afternoon of injuries suffered in the
crash of his private plane Monday, sources at the hospital reported.
The plane, an amphibious craft, ran Into mechanical trouble seconds
after it was aloft, nose-dived and crash landed, skidding 50 yards into a
field.
Alexandros and the copilots, the only persons on board, were taken to
hospitals.
Alexandros is in charge of the helicopter and light aircraft division of
Olympics Airways, owned by his Greek shipping magnate father.
The others on board were identified as Donald MacGregor, a Briton, and
Donald MacCusker, an American. Their home towns and ages were not

180 FEARED DEAD IN NIGERIANAIR CRASH
KANO, NIGERIA (AP) A chartered jetliner carrying 202 Moslems
home from a pilgrimage to Mecca crashed and burned on the runway of
Kano's Airport Monday while coming in for a landing in a fog. Officials
sud they fear 180 persons perished.
They reported 30 survivors, all of them severely burned. The plane had a
crew of eight.
This would make the crash the world's deadliest air disaster involving a
single aircraft. One hundred seventy six persons died in the crash of a
Soviet Aeroflot jet near Moscow last Oct. 13.
The crash was the llth in little over a year In which 100 or more
persons were killed In various parts of the world. The one previous to this
was the crash of an Eastern Air Lines jet in the Florida Everglades on Dec.
30, which cost 101 lives.
BLACKLISTED BY WORLD COUNCIL OF CHURCHES
GENEVA (AP)- The World Council of Churches Monday blacklisted
650 companies from the U.S., Britain, Holland and Switzerland for having
links with South Africa, and announced it has sold all its holdings in them.
A spokesman said the list was circulated among the more than 200
member churches in more than 80 countries in an effort to have them join
in a new pressure move against South Africa's apartheid policies.
POUND FIXED FOR ECC DEALING
LONDON (AP)- The British government announced agreement
Saturday with a proposal to fix the parity of the floating pound at 2.3499
dollars but only in matters concerning payments to the Central
Agricultural Fund of the European Common Market.
The proposal came from the Commission of the nine-nation economic
bloc which Britain joined Jan. I together with Denmark and Ireland. The
Commission is the Common Market's chief executive body but the proposal
has to be approved by the bloc's council of ministers.
The proposal means a de facto devaluation downwards of about 9.7 pe,
cent of the pound against the dollar from its parity of 2.6057 dollars set by
the 1971 Smithsonian Accord.
"This is simply a bookkeeping operation' a British treasury spokesman
said. 'Since the pound was floated June 23 last its value has changed from
day to day. This would make calculation of amounts to be paid into the
central fund complicated and laborious. With the new fixed parity we can
avoid this."
The spokesman stressed that the pound's value against the dollar would
continue to float In all other world financial dealings.
"There Is no question of the British government accepting a total
devaluation of this order,' the spokesman said.
The spokesman added that the new fixed rate of the pound in Common
Market agricultural dealings would also be reviewed and revised at regular
intervals if monetary exchange rates warranted it.

INTERVIEW SEEN AS AFFRONT TO POPE?
JERUSALEM (AP) A war ot words broke out between Israel and the

description of her audience with Pope Paul VI.
Israeli officials said they were surprised by the Holy See's critical view ol
Mrs. Meir's interview Friday with, an Israeli newspaper in which she
referred to the Pontiff as 'the man of the cross under which so many Jews
wAre p essuted.'
The Vatican was apparently angered at Mrs. Meir's unusually frank
statments on the Papal audience aix days ago. The officials in Jerusalem
said It came to offset conflicting Vatican statements after the meeting,
which seemingly cast doubt on whether the Israeli leader had indeed been
Invited by the Pope.
They said that nothing In Mrs. Meir's interview could be seen as an
affront to the Pope.
BRITISH STAGE ACTING AWARDS ANNOUNCED
LONDON (AP) Laurence Olivier Monday was awarded the London
Evening Standard award the capital's best stage actor of 1972 for his

SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS, JAN. 23 (AP) The
President Lyndon Baines Johnson will be flown t
lie in state in the Capitol Rotunda and receive tl


tribute.
Johnson, whose dreams of a
"Great Society" were
dampened by divisions at home
over a war in Asia, died
Monday of a heart attack at
64.
Johnson's coffin will be
carried on a horse-drawn
caisson in a procession to
Capitol Hill Wednesday
afternoon. A ceremony will be
held in the Rotunda.
Funeral services will be held
Thursday in Washington's
National City Christian
Church, after which the body
will be returned to Texas for
burial in the family cemetery
of the LBJ Ranch.
Before the body of the
nation's 36th President is
flown to Washington, it will lie
in state from noon Tuesday
until 0800 EST Wednesday at
the LBJ Library in Austin,
Texas. There will be a full
honour guard.
HEART ATTACK
Johnson was stricken,
apparently with a heart attack,
at his LBJ Ranch Monday and
flown to Brooke General
Hospital in San Antonio, where
he was dead on arrival. His
death came almost exactly four
years to the day after he left
office to return home to Texas.
Johnson, who had a history
of heart trouble dating back to
1955, was stricken at his ranch
in Johnson City, Tex., and was
rushed to Brooke Army
Medical Centre here, an aide
said.
He was pronounced dead at
5:43 p.m. Miami time at San
Antonio International Airport
by a Johnson City physician
identified as Dr. David J.
Abbot. The cause of death was
not immediately announced.
FOUND ON FLOOR
A spokesman for the family
said the former president was
found lying on his back on the
floor of his bedroom, by two
Secret Service agents assigned
to him. He said the agents were
in the Secret Service quarters
about 100 yards from the
ranch house.
Johnson, the 36th president,

VU IIIVmuIUI auI UIIUlU UU I111


WASHINGTON (AP)-The man
who sad he listened to wiretapped
conversations from Democratic
headquarters testified Monday he
thought it it was legal because his
orders came from the security chief
of President Nixon's reelction
committee.
"Weren't you suspicious that
some hanky-panky was going on,
that something was wrongwhen he
told you to use an assumed name?"
Judge John J. Sirica asked the
witness, Alfred C. Baldwin, III, at
the Watergate trial.
"Not the use of an assumed
name, no sr, your honour," said
Baldwin, a former FBI agent who
the United once taught police science.
President in Baldwin said he used the alias
Bill Johnson at McCord's direction.
Baldwin, the prosecution's star
witness, was on the stand for the
third day asthe third week of tr
d began for G. Gordon Uddy and
James W. McCord Jr., charged with
ie conspiracy, burglary and illegal
wiretapping in a case Involving a
break-in at Democratic
Headquarters last June.
SThe judge questioned Baldwin
k out of the hearing of the jury at the
completion of cross-examination by
McCord's lawyer, Gerald Alch.
S The judge said he felt it his duty
SI o clear up questions.
J V Baldwin had said he was
-a~


recruited by McCord to monitor
conversations from his hotel room
across thystreet from Democru:lc
headquarters in the Watergate
Building.
He had said he saw a letter
McCord wrote to the Federal
Communications Commissions
requesting the use of certain radio
frequencies and that he had
received permission. He said that, as
well as McCord's positions with the
reelection committee, were factors
in believing the activities were legal.
The judge sent the jury from the
room and asked Baldwin "you
thought what you were doing for
McCord was perfectly legal?"
"Yes," Baldwin said.
Baldwin also had said he had
hand delivered two days of logs of
conversations to the headquarters
of the Republican committee for
the reelection of the President.
Judge Sirica called attention to
Baldwin's remembering many
details but not the name of the man
to whom he address the envelope
containing the logs.
Q. You want this court and the
jury to believe you gave it to some
guard and hardly knew?
A. He told me he would deliver it
to the individual.
Q. And you left it at that?
A. Yes. Because of the
procedures that were in effect at
the committee for the reelection of
the President then.
Alch, in a memorandum to the
court last week said he would try to
prove that McCord broke into the
Democratic offices and monitored
the conversations as a scouting
manoeuvre to anticipate possible
demonstrations against
Republicans, including 'the
President.
Under questioning by Alch,
Baldwin said that he was involved
in demonstrations that were
numerous in Washington in May.
"Were you present at a news
conference held by Rennis Davis?"
Alch asked. Baldwin said he was.
Q. Is It accurate to say he was
associated with one of the more
prominent demonstrating groups in
the Capitol area.
A. I believe he was.
Q. Were you associated with the
organization called Vietnam
Veterans against the War?
A. On two occasions.
Davis was one of the defendants
in the Chicago Seven trial that
followed the disturbances at the
1968 Democratic Conventions.
Baldwin said that he met McCord
regularly to give him the
information he had gathered and
admitted that he had once referred
to demonstrators as "crackpots."
Alch asked whether McCord had
hired Baldwin to obtain
information about threats against
the reelection committee.
"So initially when you took the
assignment Mr. McCord did tell you
to watch for threats against the
President?" McCord's lawyer asked.
"He just said to turn it over to
him and he would give it to the
secret service," Baldwin said.
On Friday a three-man U.S.
Court of Appeals panel ruled that
Baldwin could not disclose the
contents of wiretapped
conversations. The government
Monday filed an application for a
rehearing by the full nine-man
Appeals Court.

FALL IN II STICK

EXCHANGE HISTORY
LONDON (AP) The London
stock market suffered the worst
one-day fall Monday In its 200-year
history.
The Financial Times Index of 30
leading Industrials closed down 1a
points at 470.1, after being down
18.8 points earlier in the session.
The drop was the worst since a
band of brokers moved their
business out of Jonathan's Coffee
House in 1773 and set up the
Exchange.
Dealers estimated Monday's slide
took more than 2 billion pounds or
4.7 billion dollars off share values.
The previous all-time record drop
18 points, was recorded in 1962
during the Cuban missile
confrontation between President
Kennedy and Soviet Premier Mikita
Khrushchev.
Market sources b named the
selling wave of government
inflation curbs announced last
week, which included sharp
controls on corporate profits, and
weekend speculation that tougher
curbs would be applied by fall.
Some sources said traders were
over-reacting in panic selling.
Nevertheless the drop in share
prices since Prime Minister Edward
Heath announced his 'Phase 2'
inflation curbs last Wednesday has
been nothing short of phenomenal.
In the three trading days since
then, the Financial Times Index has
plummeted some 35 points, cutting
7 to 8 per cent off share values.
Dealers estimated the money loss at
some 4 billion pounds or 9.4 billion
dollars.
Heath announced Wednesday the
creation of pay and price boards to
keep increases down to government
approved standards. At the same
time government told companies
their profits would not be allowed
to grow beyond their highest level
reached in the past five years.
Dealers said the profit curbs
pushed the Financial Times Index
down 10.2 points Thursday and
another 7 points Friday.
Over the weekend, newspapers
predicted Itill tougher government
curbs were likely by fall to defeat
inflation, now running at about 12
per cent a year. It was this
speculation, dealers said, that
knocked the average down by a
record margin Monday.
Douglas Allison, a director of
merchant bankers Hill Samuel, said
on television at midday the market
was over-reacting to the fears of
further profit curbs. He stressed
that no capitalist economy could
prosper unless corporate profits
were allowed to increase.

Newspaper magic


By ETIENNE DUPUCH
YESTERDAY I told you a story about my first visit to the
house of Mr. Speaker Malcolm which, back in those days, was
considered "holy ground" for the likes of me.
Today I will tell you an interesting little story about Mr.
Malcolm's house to reveal the way politics was run back in the
days when I first entered the House.
**********
Mr. Malcolm, a portly man full of an imposing dignity, was
then the uncrowned king of the island. The people of the town
spoke of him affectionately as their prince. And, indeed, he
played the part well. He had the deportment of a prince.
*****+*4i
At that time the three most influential people in the colony
were Mr. Speaker Malcolm, Deputy Speaker W.C.B. Johnson who
was later Speaker, and Miss Mary Moseley, Editor and proprietor
of The Nassau Guardian.
Mr. Malcolm and Miss Moseley were devoted to Britain but
they were first of all Bahamians. When anything from England
clashed with what they considered Bahamian interests, they
closed ranks against the English official element. This attitude
precipitated a big crisis on one occasion. I describe this event in
my book The Tribune Story.
On the other hand, Mr. Johnson often declared: "Right or
wrong, I'm ag'in the Government".
This made him the unofficial leader of the Opposition in the
House. It was a very active .... but not destructive .... opposition,
otherwise the small Government representation in the House
would have never got a measure through the Assembly.
The overwhelming Opposition passed Government measures
Sbut only after close study and scrutiny .... and often extensive
, amendment.

The House was Mr. Johnson's life. In over 50 years of
membership he had missed only one meeting. This happened
when he had to go to Miami to consult a doctor.
At that time the House met two evenings a week. There was
-only a weekly service between Miami and Nassau by a small
, motor vessel. He could not get back in time for the mid-wiek
meeting.
He had collected .... and catalogued .... in a room in his office
building every scrap of legislation that had been moved on the
floor of the House during this period.
In tribute to Mr. Johnson, the Hon. Sir Bede-Clifford,
Governor of the colony, said he had a record that was probably
;' unmatched in the history of parliaments.
Mr. Johnson was the father of Mr. Joseph S. Johnson of
present-day insurance fame.
***** ***
Members met at Mr. Johnson's office in Union Street ... since
renamed Elizabeth Avenue ... before every meeting to decide on
the fate of legislation before the House. His office was dubbed
the Union Street Parliament.
In those days Mr. Johnson was the single most powerful
man in the colony but he looked on Mr. Malcolm as his prince
and so he most often served Mr. Malcolm's will.
Miss Moseley held the same relationship with Mr. Malcolm,
who used The Guardian as his instrument for helping to set
policy. Mr. Malcolm and Miss Moseley belonged to the same
social set and so they were considered equals. But Mr. Malcolm
was treated by his equals as something special and apart.

There were occasions when Mr. Malcolm considered the Union
Street crowd too large and unwieldly to handle. On such
occasions he called just a few of the most influential men in the
House to a meeting at his house on East Hill Street, on the site
now occupied by the new Post Office.
There they decided what to do ... and then it was the job of
these men to pressure the little men into line.

Late one night there was a rap on the front door of my house.
When I opened it a powerful member of the House was standing
there. Without any ceremony he pushed himself into the room.
"I've parked my car around the corner so that no one will see
it," he told me. In those days the area was poorly lighted. "We
have to talk fast." he said.
"I've just come from a meeting at Mr. Malcolm's house. There
were just a few of us there. A Bill is to be introduced at the next
meeting of the House and they want to push it through. They
don't know but I don't think it's a good thing. And so I am
telling you the whole story so you may be able to spike it in The
Tribune before it comes up. I'm going to tell you everything that
happened at the meeting because Kenneth Maclure is supposed to
come to you tonight. They need The Tribune He won't tell you
the full story and he will try to get you committed."

Mr. Maclure, a member of a fine old Bahamian family that has
now died out, was the Chief Clerk to the Commander at the
Imperial Lighthouse Department, and Chief Clerk to the House
which met in the evening. He lived on the upper floor of the
Lighthouse Department offices on Bay Street. He died in his sleep
one night. No one suspected that '.he had a heart condition.
He was an uncle of Mrs. Philip Bethell and of Mr. O'Brien of
the real estate firm of Morley and O'Brien.
a **** * * *
The House member had just finished telling me the story when
there was another rap on my front door. I shoved my first visitor
through a side door on to a porch before I opened the front door.
"Come in Mr. Maclure," I said as I opened the door, "I have


been expecting you."
Mr. Maclure had never been to my house before in his life and
so he was surprised by this greeting. He hesitated before entering
the room. He seemed stunned.
"Come on in," I urged him, "I have been expecting you. Mr.
Malcolm has sent you to me. You are to tell me ..."
And then I told him what he was supposed to tell me, after
which I told him everything that had happened at the meeting,
even to what some of the men had said, and the real purpose of
his visit to me.
He sat down open-mouthed until I had finished.


i'EXHORBITANT Follows Bible, smokes 'herbs' BANK SUES

CLAIM BY SIR gets$1.200fineondrugcharge LOCAL FIRM

ROLAND' -BOWE y SIDNDORSE FOR $9.826
dsBy SIDNEY DORSETT fresi'ei c. ,, -e


THE REASON the
government has not yet paid
compensation for nearly half
the private land it acquired to
construct the East-West
Highway is because the claim
being made by Opposition
FNM member Sir Roland
Symonette is regarded as
"exhorbitant."
This explanation given in the
House last week by Works
Minister Simeon Bowe, was the
first official statement by
government on what has been a
source of considerable public
speculation.
Mr. Bowe's reply was
prompted by questions tabled
by Mr. Michael Lightbourn
(FNM-Clarence Town).
The Minister acknowledged
that private land totalling
454,911 square feet had been
acquired to construct the
highway.
He said $516,909.12 had
been claimed for 141,232
square feet at $3.66 per square
foot by Sir Roland on behalf of
Englerston Limited. A further
$275,956.68 for 75,393 square
feet at $3.66 per square foot
was being sought by Sir Roland
for Eleuthera Adventurers
Limited, Mr. Bowe said.
"But no agreement has been
arrived at because it is
considered that $3.66 per
square foot is exorbitant," the
Minister explained.
He said 107,652 square feet
at 66.9 cents per square foot
had been assessed, agreed and
paid to D. Lester Brown of
Musha Investments Limited..
Concerning other
compensation amounts still
unpaid, Mr. Bowe said
negotiations were taking place
with other persons from whom
land was acquired "but no
sums are payable until these
negotiations have been
completed."

UNIVERSITY OF HAWAII
graduate Nixon Rush, 31,
smokes marijuana because he
has been divinely instructed to
do so in the Bible or so he
claims.
Rush, a resident of
Tallahassee, Florida, arrived in
Nassau Saturday with a supply
of marijuana 5'/ pounds in a
biscuit tin and an extra pound
which he kept in his luggage.
Arriving at Nassau
International Airport, he told
Customs Officers he had
nothing to declare except his
tin of "Fancy Biscuits" which
he purchased in Jamaica and
valued at $4.50.
Monday morning, Rush
appeared in the lower court -


Magistrate Wilton Hercules
where he attempted to impress
the judge with his scriptural
proof.
Not only does Rush smoke
"grass" hut his brother does
too, he revealed. There is a
passage in the Bible telling man
to smoke herbs, he told
Magistrate Hercules making no
reference to chapter or verse.
Not impressed, the
magistrate ordered Rush to pay
a $1.200 fine or serve
1 2-months imprisonment.
Though Rush's major
occupation could not be
determined, his course of study
at the university was definitely
not theology, prosecuting
Inspector Silas Nixon -'id


Ex-RAF man get 6 months


for beating his sister-in-law


A FORMER RAF
serviceman, charged with
harming his 52-year-old
sister-in-law, Clotilda Clarke,
following an altercation at
Exuma on November 10, last
year, was imprisoned for six
months Monday morning by
Chief Justice Sir Gordon
Bryce.
Raleigh Rhodriquez, 49, a
Hart, Exuma, charter-boat
captain and farmer, changed
his plea to guilty when court
resumed this morning.
Representing Rhodriquez was
attorney Joseph Hollingsworth
who told the court his client's
future could be harmed by a
conviction.
Rhodriquez, who was a
corporal with the RAF, is
presently separated from his
wife and a prison sentence
"may widen the gap between
him and his wife," Mr.
Hollingsworth said.
Rhodriguez was accused of
beating his sister in-law with
the handle of a gardening hoe
- an improvised tree branch -
when she accused him of
stealing.
She suffered a fractured rib
and lacerations to her face and
ankles.
In his plea, Mr.
Hollingsworth said there was
some evidence of provocation
and asked Sir Gordon to
consider it. She often brought
this accusation against him
although he did not


acknowledge it, Mr.
Hollingsworth said
Sentencing the accused, Sir
Gordon said he could not
"overlook an assault of this
nature on a woman taking
into consideration your
character and previous
behaviour you are to he
imprisoned for six months
from today."

TRADERS Bank and Trust
Ltd. liquidator Mr. Sidney
Morris has filed a writ
claiming, thh Cmrn of
$9,826.65 "with interest ... at
the rate of six per cent per
annum" against the
Maythomort Company Ltd.
Mr. Morris, official
liquidator of the bank, has in
his statement of claim said that
when the "Traders Bank and
Trust Ltd. was a going concern,
the defendant's company was
given overdraft facilities up to
the amount of $15.000."
The Maythomort Company,
which registers its directors as
M.P. Earl V. Thompson, Fort
Charlotte, and Andrew "Dud"
Maynard, Progressive Liberal
Party chairman, withdrew
amounts from its account
between June 20, 1967 to
August 21, 1969. The balance
left owing up to August 21,
1969 was $9,826.65 which is
being claimed with interest and
also costs of the suit.
Formed to operate as
suppliers and to act as
importers and manufacturers as
well as "wholesale and retail
dealers in typewriters, adding
machines, radios, and
refrigerators," the company
also lists businessmen Lester J.
Mortimer and Bernard J.
Mortimer as its officers. Also
listed is Venencia M.
Thompson, teletypist.
The company, with a listed
total of 3,000 shares and
capital of $3,000 is required,
by the writ, to pay the sum
owing from date the writ was
filed until "payment or
judgment."
The Traders Bank and Trust
Ltd. went into compulsory
liquidation after having its
licence suspended by
Government on August 22,
1969 "because certain
stipulated conditions were not
met."
The bank's financial
difficulties became known on
August 13, 1969 when The
Tribune published the story of
Mrs. Betty Fox, who
complained that her savings of
over $3,000 had been frozen
when she attempted to collect
it after being told that "funny
things" were going on at the
bank.

THOUGHT FOR TODAY:
"Always do right. This will gratify
some people and astonish the rest"
- Mark Twain, U.S. humorist
(1835-1910).


"How do you know all this?", he asked. "This has just
happened. It is impossible for you to know. You must work some
sort of magic."
"Call it what you like, Mr. Maclure," I told him. "What you
people don't realize is that I have my eyes and ears everywhere."
I had a reputation of publishing things that were supposed to
be dead secret.
It just never occurred to him that any of the men at the
meeting would have squealed because they had all said they
favoured the proposal. No one in the group was supposed to be a
friend of mine. Further, it seemed impossible for me to be briefed
in such a short time because he had come straight from Mr.
Malcolm's house to me.
He left my house shaking his head in awed surprise. After that
he treated me with special respect and with a trace of fear and
suspicion. It was clear that he thought I must be a magic man.
Suffice it to say ... the Bill was never presented to the House.
*********
A THOUGHT FOR TODAY
'Tis true; there's magic in the web of it;
A sibyl, that had number'd in the world
The sun to course two hundred compasses,
In her prophetic fury sew'd the work;
The worms were hallow'd that did breed the silk,
And it was dy'd in mummy which the skilful
Conserv'd of maidens' hearts.

PRISON ESCAPEEAnthony
Lord, 20, who evaded a police

guarded at the Princess
Margaret Hospital on October

Parental Guidance Rurmsaed


Lord, guarded by warden
Gladstone Taylor after being
admitted to hospital, made his
get-away by asking to be taken
to the bathroom where he
escaped through a window.
His absence was not
discovered until ten minutes
after he had left.
He was serving a
four-and-a-half year prison
sentence imposed in the
Supreme Court by Mr. Justice
James Smith on May 25 last
year for housebreaking and
stealing.
Lord, captured at Gregory
Town on October 19 after he
and five other Nassau youths
were accused of disorderly
conduct, was allowed to
consult a psychiatrist when he
appeared with the four in court
last December.
Lord and two of the youths
were fined $75 for the offense
and the lash was ordered in the
case of the remaining three
who were juveniles.


DeWt Abbt


By Abigail Van Buren
a 19 kor CmAn Trbme-N. YNew M st.. te
DEAR ABBY: Man, do we have a problem! About 100
junior and senior high school students in Oklahoma need
your help. Ours is a small-town school and the school board
is so old fashioned it isn't even funny. They set up a dress
code for girls saying we can't wear our dresses any shorter
than three inches above our kneecaps. And they even tell
the boys how long to wear their hair. They can't have it
any longer than their collars.
Abby, everyone is so uptight here they are failing in
their work. Do you honestly believe that a person's dress
affects his behavior? IN JAIL IN MULDROW, OKLA.
DEAR IN: I hate to let you down, but serious studies
show that a person's dress DOES affect his behavior. Kids
who dress like they're going to a hay ride are more ln-
clined to horse around.
DEAR ABBY: I came up with what I thought was a
brilliant idea in the way of New Year's resolutions for
married folks.
The husband should make up a list of resolutions for
his wife to follow, and the wife should make up a list of
resolutions for her husband to follow. For example, he
might have me resolve never to ask him to stop on his way
home and pick up something from the store, because that's
my job and I have all day to do it. And I might have him
resolve always to call me and tell me if he knows he'll be
late getting home.
My husband told me he thought it was a very foolish

Personally, I can't see what anyone would have to
lose except some bad habits that irritated the spouse. On
Jan. 1, both parties would sit down together, exchange lists,
and bargain. You know, "Okay, I'll agree to Number One
on your list, if you'll agree to Number Two on mine."
What do you think of this idea, Abby?
MRS. T. IN JOPLIN, MO.
DEAR MRS. T.: I think it's so good, since It missed
New Year's, any Monday morning would be a good starting
date.
DEAR ABBY: You wrote, "You will always be your
mother's daughter regardless of WHO your father's wife
is." You are wrong. It should be "WHOM" because the
entire phrase "who your father's wife is," is the object of
the preposition "of."
Should your experts on English language prove me
incorrect, I bow to the fact that language usage is a living
thing, and as such is always changing.
WIFE AND TEACHER
DEAR WIFE AND TEACHER: Don't teach the above,
because yeou are wrong. "Who" is correct, because it is the
subject of the clause, not the object.
DEAR ABBY: With all the publicity about breast can-
cer, I have yet to read one line stating that it's possible for
men to have breast cancer. They can. I should know be-
cause I did.
I discovered two lumps in the region of my right
breast. I went to a doctor and found that, indeed, I had
breast cancer.
It's been a year since my surgery, and I continue to be
"clean" simply because I saw the doctor in time. I am 48.
T. J., HOLLYWOOD, CAL.
DEAR T. J.: I, for one, learned something new today.
Thanks for writing.

above, he will make a trump
trick.
So long as South is alive to the
danger, he can hardly go wrong.
At trick two, he crosses to the
OA and leads a trump from
dummy. Now if East returns a
second heart, South can afford
to ruff high.

A STINKING UPSET VICTORY


Foreman knocks down Frazier six



times in 2 rounds on way to win



world heavyweight championship

By Ed Schuyler Jr.
KINGSTON, JAMAICA (AP)--George Foreman knocked Joe Frazier down six
times in two rounds Monday night and won the World Heavyweight Championship


in a stunning upset.
The end came with Frazier
reeling around the ring after
the sixth knockdown with
blood gushing from his mouth.
Referee Arthur Mercante
signalled the end of the fight.
The 24-year-old Foreman, a
3A-1 underdog, took charge
from the start in handing
Frazier his first loss in 30 pro
fights Monday night. The ease
with which Foreman handled
the defending champion made
the outcome one of the most
stunning upsets in heavyweight
boxing history.
About midway in the first
round Foreman scored with
two left jabs and then dropped
Frazier with a thudding right
hand to the face. Frazier got
up immediately and took an
eight count. Frazier moved
back in with a left hook and
exchanged a few punches with
Foreman before Frazier went
down again from a series of
right hands to the head.
Once again Frazier got up
immediately, but he was badly
dazed and went down for the
third time in the round as the
bell sounded.
FLAT ON BACK
Frazier landed flat on his
back and it appeared he might
stay down, but he struggled up
at the count of three as
Mercante continued the count
according to the rules.
Frazier rushed to the attack
as the second round opened
and landed a left hook to the
head, but from then on it was
all Foreman. The new
champion, who weighed 217'/2
pounds to 214 for Frazier, sent
Frazier down for the fourth
time with a left and a right to
the jaw. Frazier struggled up at
two and then went down again
from two left hooks. Once
again Frazier took hardly any
count, and it was hardly any
time before he went down for
the final time after receiving a
series of punches along the
"sp s.
ENDS FIGHT
Frazier struggled gamely to
his feet, but Mercante took one
look at the reeling, bleeding
fighter and signalled a new
Heavyweight Champion of the
World.
Before the fight Frazier had
predicted Foreman would not
be able to last 15 rounds with
him, but on this night it was
Frazier who was the hunted
and at the end a badly beaten
pulp of his former self.
The fight justified critics
who had said Frazier's gruelling
15 round victory over
Muhammad All in 1971 had
taken too much out of Frazier
as a fighter. It also- left in
jeopardy a rematch between
Frazier and Ali about which
guarantees of as much as 4
million dollars had been
mentioned.
Foreman, in his first real test
in 38 pro fighters, more than
answered charges that he had
not met the kind of tough
opponents which would
prepare him for a man of
Frazier's fearsome credentials.


Don
MW
no
WAN
am,
la l


Indeed, Foreman's knockout
over the 29-year-old Frazier.
his 35th in 38 victories, must
have been one of his easiest
fights.
Foreman, who said before
the fight he has never been
hurt as a professional, can
maintain that boast. Frazier
never even shook Foreman as a
shocked and screaming crowd
of more than 30,000 watched
in the outdoor National
Stadium. The bout was also
seen on closed circuit television
in many parts of the world.
including the United States.
BIG PURSI
Foreman received the largest
purse of his career,
$375.000--but it's a cinch his
next purse will be much
greater.
The 6-foot-3 Foreman, a
grade school dropout who
joined the job corp when he
was 16, turned professional
when he knocked out Don
Waldheim in three rounds after
winning the Olympic
heavyweight championship in
Mexico City in 1968. lIe made
world headlines by waving an
American flag after his gold
medal victory.
However, many of the
opponents he beat as he built
up his 37-0 record were no
better known than Waldheim,
and many boxing observers felt
he was not prepared for a title
fight.
He proved them very wrong.
Now the heavyweight
division is in disarray. Foreman
is the new king and will call the
shots. Neither Frazier, who
insists he wants a rematch, nor
Ali, who is waiting in the
wings, is in his immediate
future.
WANTS REST
"I am not thinking about
any big fights now," he said
afterwards. "I want a long rest.
I want to go home and see my
new daughter.
"After that, I want to go all
around the country to
Houston and cities like that
and talk to kids. I want to tell
them they can do anything
they want if they try. I am an
example."
Foreman's wife of a year,
Adrienne, gave birth earlier this
month to their first child at
their home in Hayward, Calif.
The new champion received
$375,000 against 20 per cent
of the fight's gross while
Frazier was guaranteed
$850,000 against 42'/2 per cent,
but it is Foreman who now is
in a position to talk to
promoters in million-dollar
terms.
"1 saw him before the
fight," said Angelo Dundee of
Miami, trainer for Ali. "I said,
'George, we want to talk to
you after you win' and he
smiled and said, 'You know,
Angie, you're one of my
favourite people'."
Dundee was one of the few
experts who predicted a
victory for the young giant
who grew up in a
disadvantaged background in
Texas, once played


hide-and-seek with the cops
and had his background turned
around by joining the job
corps
A blow to boxing's big
manipulators, who now must
completely redesign their
fu tuore plans. Foreman's
triumph was heady wine for
the Jamaican majority in the
surprise crowd of 36,000 who
almost filled the combination
soccer field and cycling drome
that is Kingston's National
Stadium.
Foreman's face was a grim
mask when Dick Sadler. his
manager, tied the strings on his
boxing gloves
TWISTING HOOKS
Frazier, a renowned
aggressor, who has whipped his
opponents into submission
with a head-bowed, bore-in
attack that resembles a berserk
pile-driver, came out swinging.
Hut Foreman didn't back up an
inch. His 6-foot-3 inch 'rame
erect in his familiar stand-up
style, he lashed out with
twisting left hooks.
Snap. Frazier's head went
back hut the champion
continued to move forward,
swinging. Snap, Snap.
After a few vicious
exchanges. Foreman pumped a
hard right hand into Frazier's
mid-section.
Midway through the first
round. Foreman caught the
champion flush on his bearded
chin with a thundering
uppercut. Frazier crumbled to
the floor but bounced up,
taking the regulation
eight-count.
Frazier hung on gamely but
moments later, a pair of
thudding rights dropped the
champion a second time.
Before the end of the round, a
third smashing blow sent
Frazier spinning underneath
the bottom strand of red rope.
The champion's eyes were
glazed and his legs were like
jelly when he staggered to his
corner at the end of the round.
The crowd sensed a kill and
began yelling for the knockout.
As the bell for the second
round sounded, Frazier came
out courageously, throwing left
hooks. A crashing right to the
jaw sent him to the canvas for
the fourth time.
The reteree had trouble
getting Foreman to a neutral
corner. Foreman walked
toward Frazier's corner and
began looking at the
champion's manager, as if
asking him to intercede and
stop the fight. But Yancey
didn't interfere.
Frazier rose unsteadily to his
feet and then two left hooks
by Foreman sent the champion
reeling to the floor again. For
the second time, Foreman
pleaded with Frazier's corner
to throw in the towel but there
was no response. Frazier rose
again and again a fusillade sent
him into the ropes and down
to the floor.
This time Durham jumped
into the ring. The time was
1:35 of the second. It was
over. There was a new
champion.

LARRY MINNS

GOALS DOWN

CASUALS 2-0
CENTRE-FORWARD, Larry
Minns of Golden Isles scored
two fine goals to help
his team defeat Appleton
Casuals 2-0 in the Saturday
Soccer League played at
Clifford Park over the
weekend.
Both Minns' goals came in
the second half after a lot of
pressure by the Golden Isles
forwards on the Casuals
defence. Golden Isles went into
the lead when Minns ran onto a
through ball from Gavin
Turner following a clearance
out of the Isles's defence by
skipper, Randy Rodgers.
Shortly after this with the
Isles's forwards laying seige to
the Casuals box Minns struck
again when he rose above the
Casuals defence to head in a
cross from outside right, Tony
Walker, to make the score 2-0
to Golden Isles.
Neither team dominated the
first half and for the greater
part the play was concentrated
around midfield with both
forward lines failing to impress
on the defences.
INTO TOP GEAR
However, Golden Isles'
superiority began to show in
the second half when Turner
and Love playing excellent
roles in the middle admirably
supported by their captain,
Rodgers who was controlling
the defence, began to move
into top gear.
Grey, Walker and Minnis in
the attack were fed with first
class passes from midfield
resulting in Minns' goals after
65 minutes and 73 minutes.
Shortly after the start of the
second half Rodgers missed a
penalty following a handball
by Casuals defender, Dave
Allen.
In the other two matches
played in the Saturday League
over the weekend Barclays lost
2-0 to Paradise, and St.
Augustine's trounced McAlpine
to the tune of 6-0.


LOCKHART SHOOTS 57 TO

WIN JUNIOR GOLF TOURNEY
VERNON LOCKHART, 16, posted a three over par 57 on
Sunday to capture the first Bahamas Golf Association Junior
Tournament at the Blue Hill Golf Course.


Lockhart showed fine
temperament for a golfer of his
age carding a 29 on the front
half, followed by a steady 28
on the back nine.
Last year's Golfer of the
Year Bob Slatter, shot the best
score for the seniors when he
carded a 56-just one stroke
better than Lockhart.
Finishing in second and
third place respectively were
the Hepburn brothers Theron
and Dwayne. They had tied for
second place with scores of 58.
Theron defeated his elder
brother on the first hole of a
sudden death playoff.
Playing along with the
Juniors to advise them on their
game were four other seniors
besides, Bob Slatter. The
others were; Donald Butler,
Mike Taylor, Zorro Sutbbs and
Basil Smith.
Following the tourney a
presentation ceremony was
held during which, BGA
president, Dr. Cleveland Eneas
welcomed the Juniors and told
them that they were the future
of the Bahamas.
According to BGA
vice-president and tournament
organizer, Freddie Higgs, the
next tourney is scheduled for
Sunday, February 1I.
