U.S. GIVING BAHAMAS HIGH PRIORITY

EVEN BEFORE INDEPENDENCE





2 recent major US loans






seen as 'pretty significant'



THE GRANT BY THE UNITED ,STATES of a $10 million loan for livestock production and $11 million for


education is indicative of
independence.
Miami Herald editorial
writer Al Burt said today that
no other island nation in the
Caribbean, except perhaps
Cuba, holds higher priority on
U.S. attention.
Already six months before
the Bahamas becomes a nation
it has received two major loans,
he said.
Mr. Burt, who interviewed
Prime Minister Lynden
Pindling, said the Prime
Minister considered the loans
as "pretty significant because a
dependent territory doesn't
qualify for aid.
"I think the United States
recognize the de facto situation

the high priority that country is placing on the Bahamas with the advent of


here and I think it is a sign of
goodwill, a willingness to
cooperate in the development
of the Bahamas," he quoted
the Prime Minister as saying.
The Herald writer said the
Bahamas, U.S. and Great
Britain will hold tripartite talks
this spring about future
arrangements related both to
defence and financing.
HOPE
"No one will say so, but out
of this may come an agreement
by which the islands get some
guarantee of security from the
United States in return for U.S.
military installations now
there," he said.


These installations,
principally the Atlantic
Underwater Test and
Evaluation Centre off Andros,
existed through treaties with
Great Britain. Some of the
treaties go back to 1950.
Mr. Burt said that when
private investment was added
to the military, the total came
to a U.S. financial stake in the
Bahamas amounting to some
$2 billion.
Beyond that, the flow of
U.S. tourists here and the
proximity of the islands to the
Florida coast made the
Bahamas and the U.S. "highly
important to each other."


King's Inn management back down,



agree to weekly pay for its staff

By MIKE LOTHIAN
THE KING'S INN, FREEPORT, has switched back to the once-a-week salary payment system,
effectively ending a two-month-old dispute with the Bahamas Hotel and Catering Workers' Union,
but there are indications that negotiations are to continue towards a compromise.


BOAC MERGE

WITH BEA
BRITISH Overseas Airways
Corporation and British
European Airways are to merge
under the new name "British
Airways" as a result of a
recommendation made by the
British Airways Board and
accepted by the Secretary of
State for Trade and Industry.
The Airways Board believes
there will be substantial
financial benefits from
increased revenues and reduced
cost levels by bringing the two
airlines together, a release
from London said today.
The Board has set a target to
improve the separately forecast
results of the two airlines by
about one hundred million
pounds in the first five years
and by as much as forty
million pounds a year later.
The two corporations will
remain separate divisions with-
in the group organization
established last September.
The report proposes a
two-stage timetable for
implementing the plan. Stage
one: The common brand name
British Airways will be used
immediately but in addition
to the names of BEA and
BOAC. When "British
Airways" is sufficiently
strongly established to stand
on its own the names BEA and
BOAC will be discontinued.
Stage two provides for the
Board te take over on April 1,
1974 so long as the
formalitites are completed by
then legal responsibility for
operation of the BEA, BOAC
and regional division air
services worldwide in the name
of British Airways

NEW TRAFFIC LIGHTS
A NEW system of traffic
signals recently installed at the
intersection of Chesapeake
Road and Jerome Avenue goes
into operation 8 a.m.
Thursday. Instead of using the
normal system in which all the
lights are located over the
centre of the intersection, BEC
has for this particular
intersection placed individual
signal units on poles directly
opposite each of the four
stopping points, with the row
of green, amber and red lights
horizontal rather than vertical.

NLY NAI FIINIREE
NASSAU FREEPORT


Announcement of the King's
Inn move came with the
publishing of an inter-office
m.mo trom managing partner
'Charles Schlakman to hotel
computer programmer Calvin
Kemp.
The memo instructed Mr.
Kemp to "immediately take
the necessary steps (regardless
of the considerable expense
involved) to reconvert our
computer programming from
the present semi-monthly basis
to that of weekly as was the
practice before the
introduction of the new form
of payroll payment as of our
hotel reopening on November
16, 1972.
"This will be effective
Friday, January 26, 1973 and
each successive Friday
thereafter and until/or if there
ever be a mutual agreement
between the Bahamasllotel
and Catering Workers' Union,
and the King's Inn to do
otherwise."
Mr. Schlakman's memo
added that there must be
attached to each pay cheque
issued on Friday a message
reading:
"King's Inn and Golf Club
now looks to everyone
involved in the recent payroll
payment issue to join together
in the spirit of togetherness by
moving onward and upward
toward the forthcoming
historical event of
independence, harnessing the
combined energies of everyone
concerned for a prosperous
future of the Bahamas while
respecting the recommendat-
ions on this matter by Minister
of Labour and National
Insurance Clifford A. Darling."
THREE DAYS
The memo, dated Jan. 23,
came three days before the
expiration of the legal
"cooling-offf" period in the
dispute. On Jan. 18 union
members voted in favour of
strike action if the dispute was
not resolved by Jan. 26.
By reverting to paying
employees each week, the
Kir,,'s Inn has bowed to the
union's demands, effectively
ending the dispute which was
officially registered with the
Labour Ministry in early
December.
Whether the decision to
revert to the old payment
system is part of some
understanding with union
negotiators is not known.
But the memo's statement
that employees would be paid
each week "until/or if there
ever be a mutual agreement"
indicates that more sessions of
negotiation may be slated.
Mr. Schlakman when
contacted today declined to
comment further on his memo
And while it was known that


union leaders were in Nassau,
they could not be contacted. It
is understood they were
meeting with officials of the
Tourism IMinistry.
The dispute began when the
hotel introduced in
mid-November a computerised
system of semi-monthly salary
payments designed as an
economy measure to recover
from the losses caused by a fire
in May which badly damaged
the hotel. The hotel had just
opened after the extensive
damage had been repaired.
The union charged that
employees committed to pay
such weekly bills as rent and
groceries, could not budget a
salary paid every two weeks.
RECOMMENDATION
When the Labour Ministry
was brought into the dispute,
Minister Clifford Darling
recommended that the hotel
return to the weekly payment
system, but the hotel failed to
act on the recommendation.
The management's failure to
act brought condemnation
both from the union and from
Randd Bahama M.P.s Henry
Bowen and Kendal Nottage.
for what was termed
management's "total disregard
and distespect for this
Government."
In a subsequent press release
defending its actions
throughout the dispute,
management said it had legal
advice that since the union and
management were still able to
negotiate, the hotel was not
bound by any recommendation
of the Ministry.
The statement from the
hotel said management's
actions "protected its most
precious commodity, their
employees."
The statement, pointed out
that after the May fire closed
the King's Inn main buildings,
a number of employees were
retained to work in the
International Hotel. which was
leased by King's Inn for use
until the fire damage had been
repaired.
Other employees, which
King's Inn was unable to
retain, were found jobs in
other hotels, but allowed to
continue using the King's Ini
staff quarters.
In addition, the management
said. "The King's Inn arranged
for loans of close to $15,000
for many employees due to the
hardships incurred by these
people during the previously
indicated extensive layoff."
The dispute first came to
public attention when on the
night of December 30 some
dining rooom workers staged a
brief wild-cat strike to protest
the lack of progress in
negotiations, and reportedly
overturned furniture, smashed
crockery and terrorised guests.


These close ties had also
brought entanglements, he
continued. One major issue at
the moment said the Herald
writer, was the Bahamian claim
to a 12-mile territorial limit
and the archipelago principle.
This had caused
confrontations and violence
with fishermen from Florida
who contested those claims.
These was also the oddity
that, according to the Prime
Minister, more lots of land
were being sold outside the
Bahamas to non-Bahamians
than there were Bahamians in
the Bahamas today.
A substantial number of
these purchasers were
Americans, Mr. Burt said.
"If the U.S. recognizes the
importance of all this, and its
potential, so do the Bahamas."
He then quoted the Prime
Minister who said that: "It of
necessity means a policy of
close relationship and
cooperation must exist. It will
be an important factor to
always take into consideration
when one is formulating
policy.
"We don't propose to
allow it to determine what our
policies should be but it would
be foolish to ignore that it is a
consideration that must be
borne in mind.
TO BAHAMIANS
"Our primary responsibility
must of course be to the
Bahamian and to the Bahamas
and not to a person who is
incidentally in the Bahamas
and not a Bahamian."
According to Mr. Burt, the
tripartite treaty discussions -
expected to be in March or
April could be of especial
importance.
"The British involvement in
the overall defence of the area
is intertwined with the
American defence pattern of
the area. They participate in
the American base arrangement
on a friendly basis," he was
quoted.
"The British have access to
and can use the information
derived from AUTEC and all
the other things.
"Having regard to the fact
that there are these bases the
U.S. has, we would need to
find out from her what she sees
as her role in the area operating
from those bases. They can't
just operate in a vacuum.
SUSPECT
"We don't precisely you see,
know what role they play. We
only suspect that their role is
part of some larger plan."
Mr. Burt said that
although there has been some
radical statements from
Bahamian Cabinet Ministers
principally from Deputy Prime
Minister Arthur D. Hanna
the U.S. indicated no major
concern about radical leftism
in the Bahamas.
Despite this, he continued,
the U.S. apparently regards the
political atmosphere in the
Bahamas as conservative,
though certainly nationalistic
at the same time.
"While Bahamian political
institutions offer assurance of
stability, the struggle of
Bahamians to participate in
and control their economy
using political power as the
principal weapon inevitably
causes friction aand often loose
scarcetalk," Mr. Burt said.
It was his feeling that the
islands on the advent of
independence and with the
ambitions it stimulated
appeared to be going through a
settling-down period.
"When this is over and the
rules for the foreigner are
better established and better
understood, the outlook for
the Bahamas should be good.
The islands have all the
necessary attractions.
"But during this
settling-down period, the
United States is highly
interested," he concluded.


Central Bank plans next month


THE BAHAMAS MONETARY
AUTHORITY is to call a press conference
"before the end of February" to disclose
detailed plans for the construction of the new
Central Bank and to discuss the functions of
the bank, BMA chairman T. Baswell Donaldson
said today.
Mr. Donaldson said the press conference will
cover the construction schedule, the contractor
chosen for the job, the cost and the appearance
of the completed building.
The Central Bank is to be built on a site on
Frederick Street formerly occupied by the
Trust Corporation of Bahamas office building.

4 MEN STILL

LOST AT SEA
AN AIRCRAFT from the
Miami Coast Guard station
joined the search for four
Gambler men who left in a
small dinghy for a fishing trip
Monday afternoon and have
not been seen since.
Members of Bahamas Air
Sea Rescue Association began
the search for Martin Allen, 26,
Leslie Sears, 17, David Fox and
an unidentified Jamaican, who
accompanied them, when they
failed to return late Monday.
The men left the public
dock at Gambier in their
wooden dinghy, which is about
14 to 16-feet long and painted
green and yellow outside. It is
believed they may be drifting
in the Berry Islands area.
Apart from sending out its

have gone out in aircraft to
search the area.

WASHINGTON (AP)-
Washington and Hanoi unveiled
Wednesday the details of an
intricate peace accord to end
America's longest war on
Saturday, and White House
adviser Henry A. Kissinger said
it guarantees political
independence to Saigon.
Terms of the settlement
limit an impending cease-fire to
South Vietnam, but Kissinger
forecast cease-fires in Laos and
later in Cambodia as well.
(* FULL TEXT OF PEACE
AGREEMENT PAGE 3)
He told a White House news
conference, which was
broadcast live across America,
that U.S. prisoners of war held
in North Vietnam and Laos
will be turned over to
American medical personnel in
Hanoi. He said the prisoners
will be released at intervals of
two weeks to 15 days "in
roughly equal installments"
after the Saturday signing.
The 12-page agreement, to
be signed Saturday before the
Vietnam cease-fire takes effect
at 7 p.m. EST on that day,
does not call for withdrawal of
the 145,000 North Vietnamese
troops in the South. But it
does call for removal of all
foreign forces from Laos and
Cambodia.
Kissinger said he expects a
formal cease-fire in Laos
"within a short period of
time." He said the
administration expects "a de
facto cease-fire will come into
being over a period of time" in
Cambodia.
He said he would not
elaborate on the situation in
Cambodia and Laos.
Le Due Tho, the North
Vietnamese negotiator who
shaped with Kissinger the
agreement disclosed in general
terms by President Nixon
Tuesday night, said in Paris it
was "a great victory for the
Vietnamese people." lie said it
included no provisions for
withdrawal of North
Vietnamese troops from the
South.
Kissinger said the ultimate
destiny of South Vietnam will
be decided by free elections

A MINISTER resident in the
Acklins Crooked Island district
has sent a telegram to Police
Commissioner John Hindmarsh
complaining about the conduct
allegedly exhibited in his home
by the Commissioner at the

The telegram, from the Rev.
Clifford Darling, B.E.M., said
Mr. Darling had been greatlyy

behaviour exhibited by
Commissioner Arthur
Munnings in his home Monday
between 4 and 5 p.m.
"I ordered him out

The district's representative,
Mr. Cyril Tynes (FNM) told
The Tribune today he had
received a copy of the telegram
from Mr. Darling and
confirmed with the
Commissioner that he had
received the original.
The latest complaint
concerning Commissioner
Munnings follows a petition
sent by residents earlier to the
Ministry of Home Affairs and
the Chief Out Island

throughout the country Monday as cars sputtered to a halt and oil fired
heating systems ceased to function.
With all but emergency fuel supplies dried up, trade unions and oil
companies spent another inconclusive night in negotiations over a

At the same time he issued members of the consortium composed of
companies from Britain, America, France and Holland, with two
alternatives if they wished to prevent Iran completely taking over their
operation.
He said that they could either:
Agree to increase production from four to eight million barrels per
day and pay a price not less than paid to Arab producers.
Sign a new agreement under which the consortium would hand over
all assets and operations to Iranians, on the understanding that they would
receive 20-25 years guaranteed supply to good discount prices.
CONCORDE MAY BE DEALT FATAL BLOW
NEW YORK (AP) -- A spokesman for Pan American World Airways said
Tuesday it is still "premature" to say whether the airline will exercise its
option to buy the Anglo-French supersonic Concorde airliner.
'rans World Airlines chairman Charles C. Tillinghast is quoted Tuesday
in the Wall Street Journal as saying he is "certain Pan Am ... can't and
wtn't decide ti take the plane."
the Pan American spokesman commented on this report Tuesday saying
only the dececision will be made in due course, before the option expires
January 31st.
lillinghast said that as regards TWA he finds "it difficult to see anything
that would lead us to make an affirmative decision" before its option
expires Fetb. 28.
I'an American has an option to buy eight Concordes and TWA six. Some
sources say a negative decision by the II.S. airlines may deal the plane a
fatal blow.
THURSDAY NATIONAL DAY OF MOURNING FOR JOHNSON
WASIIIN(TON (AP) President Nixon Tuesday designated Thursday
as a national day of mourning for former President Lyndon B. Johnson
and ordered that all federal offices be closed on that day.
The President. who Monday night directed that flap be flown at half
staff over all federal property for 30 days in tribute to Johnson, called on
people to assemble Thursday "in their respective places of worship, there
to pay homage to the memory of President Johnson" on the day of his
funeral services here.
Nixon also sent congress a message officially informing the members of
Johlnson's death.
Recalling that Johnson kept the nation "on course" in the days
following the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, Nixon said:
"If he had done no more, his place in history would have been assured.
But he did much more, and his role then was not a highwater mark but a
hallmark. For it was his noble and difficult destiny to lead America
through a long, dark night of necessity at home and abroad. He had the

JOHNSON TO BE BURIED IN FAMILY PLOT
STONEWALL. TEXAS (AP) The body of former President Lyndon B.
Johnson will lie with those of his parents and grandparents in a tree-shaded
family cemetery a few hundred yards from the place where he was born.
Johnson said often that he wished to be buried in the cemetery, which is
on the LBJ ranch about a mile from the two-storey House during his
presidential years.
The cemetery is surrounded by a rock and mortar wall, about three feet
high with an iron gate, which neighbours say Johnson had built about 25
years ago.
The family plot lies about 100 yards from the banks of the spring-fed
I'edernaues river, where Johnson loved to swim and fish as a boy.
In use by the former President's family at least since 1905, the cemetery
holds the bodies of his mother, who died in 1958; his father, Sam Ealy
Johnson Jr., who died in 1937;his grandmother, who died in 1917: and his
grandfather, Sam Ealy Johnson, who died in 1950

WASHINGTON (AP)-Agreement has been reached to end the Vietnam war the longest in
America's history with a ceasefire effective Saturday night and complete U.S. withdrawal
coinciding with release of all US. prisoners of war, President Nixon told the nation Tuesday night.


Nixon said it is a just and
fair peace an honorable way
to end a nightmarish,
decade-long war that left
nearly 350,000 Americans
killed and wounded and caused
unprecedented upheaval at
home.
Presidential adviser Henry
Kissinger and Hanoi's Le Duc
Tho initialed the agreement
Tuesday in Paris and it will be
formally signed on Saturday,
Nixon said.
Major points of the
agreement he outlined:
An internationally
supervised ceasefire to go into
effect at 7 p.m. Miami time
Saturday.
The release of all
Americans "held prisoners of
war throughout Indochina"
within 60 days.
The withdrawal of the
remaining 24,000 U.S. forces
in South Vietnam within the
same time frame.
"The fullest possible
accounting" for all those
missing in action.
A guarantee that the
people of South Vietnam will
have "the right to determine
their own future without
outside interference."
Nixon said he joined North
Vietnam in an agreed-upon
announcement expressing hope
that the accord "will ensure
stable peace in Vietnam and
contribute to the preservation
of lasting peace in Indochina
and Southeast Asia."
The chief executive traced
the broad terms of the
settlement and said that the
full text of the agreement and
the protocols to implement it
will be made public today.
(FULL TEXT ON PAGE 3)
He said the settlement has
the full backing of South
Vietnamese President Nguyen
Van Thieu, and pledged that
the United States will
recognize Thieu's government
"as the sole legitimate
government of South
Vietnam" continuing to
supply it aid.
THE FIRST STEP
"We must recognize that
ending the war is only the first
step toward building the
peace," Nixon said.
"All parties must now see to
it that this is peace that lasts, a


U.S. READY TO PICK
WASHINGTON (AP) Defense
Secretary Melvin Laird said
Tuesday night that flight crews and
medical teams are standing by to
begin picking up prisoners of war
held in Indochina. Laird said
pickup fights would begin as soon
as possible after the formal signing
of a cease-fire Saturday.
The President's announcement
that P-O-Ws will be returned within
60 days was met by a kind of numb
joy by most P-O-W families. For
instance, P-O-W wife Anne Fuller of
Jacksonville, Florida said she could
not even cry and found it difficult
to believe that her wait was over.
Her husband had been held since
July. 1967.
PRISONER RETURNS
START MID FEBRUARY
WASHINGTON (AP) -
Presidential adviser Henry Kissinger
said Wednesday the release of
American prisoners of war would
begin in Hanoi by mid-February.
Speaking at a White House news
conference, Kissinger disclosed for
the first time some of the
mechanics for returning the 479
U.S. prisoners known to be held in
North Vietnam and Laos.
"American prisoners will be
released at intervals of two weeks
or 15 days in roughly equal
installments," Kissinger said, with
the total time frame coinciding
with the 60-day withdrawal of all
U.S. forces from South Vietnam.
Prisoners held in North Vietnam
and Laos. he said, will be received
by U.S. medical teams in Hanoi and
will be flown in American planes to
locations to be selected by U.S.
officials.
Kissinger did not say when the
first American POWs would be
released.
It was announced before
Kissinger's news conference that
the United States and North
Vietnam have agreed to return all
prisoners "without delay."
SUPERVISORY FORCE
OF 1,160 MEN ONLY
WASHINGTON (AP) The
size of the international
peace-keeping force being set up to
police the Vietnam cease-fire totals
1.160 men less than one-fourth
the force size originally sought by
the United States.
The peace agreement and
accompanying accords made public
Wednesday also establish the
temporary commission composed
of the four warring parties to serve
until after United States withdrawal
is complete within 60 days. Then a
two-party military commission
composed of South Vietnamese and
Viet Cong representatives will take
its place.
Canada, Hungary, Indonesia and
Poland each will supply one-fourth
of the total personnel of the
International Commission of


peace that heals and a peace
that not only ends the war in
Southeast Asia but contributes
to prospects of peace in the
world," he said.
Nixon said that the United
States will strictly adhere to
the agreement's terms and that
he expects other parties to do
the same a phrase that
appeared intended as a warning
to North Vietnam and the Viet
Cong that the United States
will be watching for violations
of the accord.
And, in words which seemed
intended for the Soviet Union,
Nixon declared: "we shall also
expect other interested nations
to help ensure the agreement is
carried out and the peace
maintained."
As Nixon was speaking from
his Oval Office, Thieu told the
South Vietnamese people that
Hanoi has been forced to
recognize North and South
Vietnam as two separate
countries.
SIGNING SATURDAY
Thieu said the peace
agreement to be signed
Saturday recognizes the
sovereignty of South Vietnam
a point made by Nixon when
he said the United States
recognizes Saigon "as the sole
legitimate government of
South Vietnam."
After reading the joint
statement issued
simultaneously in Hanoi, and
outlining the bare bones of the
peace agreement, Nixon
addressed "a few special words
to each of those who have been
parties to the conflict."
He told the people and
government of South Vietnam
that their courage and sacrifice
"have won the precious right
to determine your own
future."
"You have developed the
strength to defend that right,"
Nixon said.
"We are looking forward to
working with you in the
future, friends in peace as we
have been allies in war."
He told North Vietnamese
leaders that the United States
is prepared to make a major
effort to "build a peace of
reconciliation."
"But just as reciprocity was
needed to end the war," he
told Hanoi, "so too will it be


Control and Supervision.
These joint units will be
scattered throughout South
Vietnam to observe and investigate
violations of the cease-fire
agreement which will be signed and
go into effect on Saturday.
The size of the International
force, while far short of the 5,000
men sought by the United States, is
about four times greater than the
250-man force proposed by the
North Vietnamese.
4 NATIONS FORCE
ON STANDBY
WASHINGTON (AP) The
United States reportedly has asked
the four nations of the Vietnam
cease-fire supervisory force to place
their troops on three-day alert.
Indonesia, Canada, Hungary and
Poland had been observing a
seven-day alert since the
resumption of the secret peace talks
in Paris.
But it remains to be seen what
powers the supervisory commission
will have to prevent cheating on the
cease-fire. Canadian sources have
indicated that they do not expect
the commission to be given any real
enforcement powers. Rather, they
anticipate making public reports of
violations in the hope of bringing
world opinion to bear against
offenders.
CLAIMS 'GREAT VICTORY'
PARIS (AP) North Vietnam's
Le Duc Tho said Wednesday the
Vietnam peace agreement was "a
great victory for the Vietnamese
people" and contained no secret or
tacit understandings concerning the
withdrawal of North Vietnamese
troops from South Vietnam. He
told questioners repeatedly that the
agreement contained no secret
protocols of any kind and the only
point still to be agreed between the
United States and North Vietnam
was the site of the 12-nation

needed to build and strengthen
the peace."
To the other major powers
involved in Vietnam "even
indirectly" a reference to the
Soviet Union and mainland
China Nixon said, "Now is
the time for mutual restraint,
so that the peace we have
achieved can be kept."
WITH HONOUR
The President saved his
message "to the American
people" until last, saying that
their steadfast support of "our
insistence on peace with
honour has made peace with
honour possible."
He acknowledged that he
had avoided for months any
public statements about
Vietnam negotiations, but said
his silence was necessary. "The
important thing was not to talk
about peace, but to get peace
- and to get the right kind of
peace," he said. "This we have
done."
"...let us be proud," Nixon
said, "that America did not
settle for a peace that would
have betrayed our allies, that
would have abandoned our
prisoners of war, or that would
have ended the war for us but
would have continued the war
for the 50 million people of
Indochina."
He said that America should
be proud too, of the 2V1
million young Americans who
served in Vietnam "in one of
the most selfless enterprises in
the history of nations."
BRAVEST PEOPLE
He singled out the wives,
children and families of
American POWs and men
missing in action as "some of
the bravest people I have ever
met" and added, "Nothing
means more to me than the
fact that your long vigil is
coming to an end."
The President concluded his
11-minute speech by referring
to former President Lyndon B.
Johnson, who died Monday.
American involvement in the
war reached its greatest height
during Johnson's White House
years, and Nixon said he
"endured the vilification of
those who sought to portray
him as a man of war."
But, Nixon said, "There was
nothing he cared about more
deeply than achieving a lasting
peace in the world."
He recalled that the last time
he talked with Johnson, on
Jan. 2, he spoke of his concern
for achieving the right kind of
peace.
"No one would have
welcomed this peace more than
he," Nixon said in his
concluding sentences. "And I
know he would join me in
asking for those who died
and for those who lived -let
us consecrate this moment by
resolving together to make the
peace we have achieved a peace
that will last."
At the same time Nixon was
addressing his national radio
and television audience, Hanoi
Radio broadcast the
three-paragraph text of the
agreed-upon statement.
And a short time later it was
disclosed that Secretary of
State William P. Rogers is
planning to fly to Paris to sign
the peace agreement Saturday
with the other parties North
Vietnam, South Vietnam and
the Viet Cong.

release of U.S. ambassador Clinton Knox and his Consul-General, in
exchange for the release of one dozen so-called political prisoners and
$70,000 in cash, according to an informed Haitian source.


The agreement was negotiated
through French ambassador
Bernard Dorin, the informant
added.
Knox and U.S. Consul-General
Ward Christiansen were captured
last night at the ambassador's
hilltop residence outside the
capital. Five persons, all of them
armed, took part in the kidnapping.
The group is said to include one
woman.
The informant said the two
hostages and their five captors are
to be taken to Francois Duvalier
International Airport. There they
will be joined by the 12 political
prisoners the government has
agreed to release.
All the Haitians are to board an
Air-Haiti C-47 for a flight to
Mexico. which has granted them
asylum.
Nothing in Port-au-Prince, or at
the ambassador's residence, hinted
at the drama.
A single gatekeeper was stationed
at the entrance to the residence. iHe
politely, but firmly, refuses access
to several newsmen seeking
entrance. Neither policemen nor
soldiers were in evidence.
The city itself was completely
normal. News of the kidnapping has
been carried on local radio stations,
but the populace generally
appeared unaware or unconcerned
about the incident.
At the airport workers and
attendants appeared subdued but
somewhat tense.
RELEASE AGREED
Haitian information secretary
Fritz Cineaf said Ambassador
Clinton E. Knox and Consul
General Ward Christianson will be
released at 5:30 p.m. in exchange
for twelve Haitian political
prisoners and payment of 70,000
dollars.
Cineaf said twelve Haitian
political prisoners would be
released and flown to Mexico
aboard an Air Haiti C-47 plane
along with the five kidnappers.
They were to be accompanied by
French ambassador Bernard Dorin,
the Papal emissary Luigi Barbito,
and the Mexican ambassador
Armando Duran. The diplomats
acted as intermediaries in the
negotiations with the kidnappers.
NO VIOLENCE
The French and Canadian
ambassadors negotiated with the
captors and then went to the
Presidential Palace early this
morning to confer with President
Jean-Claude Duvalier.
Ambassador Knox also talked
with Duvalier by telephone.
"There has been no violence as
far as we know," said an embassy
spokesman.
The 64-year-old ambassador's
family was reported in the United

SWISS FLOAT FRANC,

AMERICAN $ SLUMPS
LONDON (AP)-- Switzerland
Tuesday freed its franc to float in
foreign exchanges in a bid to halt a
flood of unwanted American
dollars and sent the U.S. dollar
reeling in most European money
markets.
But dealers said the mass selling
of dollars appeared to be a brief
panic used by the Swiss action.
There were signs the dollar was
firming as exchanges closed.
The Swiss government acted
after its National Bank had been
forced to buy up an estimated 260
million dollars Monday to keep the
American money from sinking
below its floor level of 3.7535
Swiss francs set by the Smithsonian
Agreement of December 1971. A
further barrage of dollars was
offered at the market's opening
Tuesday.
Milan where the Italian lira is
having troubles of its own, was the
only market to see a strong dollar.
The U.S. dollar came under
renewed pressure Wednesday on
Frankfurt foreign currency market
closing at 3.1830 marks, down
sharply from Tuesday's close of
3.1985.
The Swiss government floated
the franc by announcing it would
no longer buy dollars to support
the exchange rate. This meant the
Swiss franc was free to find its own
level in the market without official
interference.
Switzerland is in the grips of
accelerating inflation and every new
speculative dollar coming into the
country tends to feed that
inflation.


States.
Knox was forced from his car
late yesterday afternoon on his way
home to the embassy residence, a
rambling house in the foothills on
the outskirts of Port au Prince.
A night watchman at the
residence said two men, a girl and
the ambassador drove up to the
gate about 5 p.m. in a small car
with licence plates indicating it was
a rental vehicle.
The watchman said the
ambassador asked that the group be
let through the gates. The two
other men had pistols, the
watchman reported.
An informed source said Knox
telephoned Christiansen during the
evening, and he went to the
embassy residence.
The residence was not blocked
off early today, but a U.S. Marine
guard in the shrubbery with a
walkie-talkie radio asked a
newsman who visited the scene to
leave.
President Nixon named Knox, a
career diplomat, to the Port au
Prince embassy in October 1969.
FROM BOSTON
Knox, one of the few black
American career diplomats of
ambassadorial rank, is a native of
Boston and entered the state
department in 1945 after receiving
a doctorate of philosophy degree
from Harvard.
In an interview with a Miami
Herald reporter only hours before
his kidnapping, Knox noted what
he considered to be an improved
political climate in the
French-speaking Black Caribbean
Republic.
The country has been ruled for
the past two years by a form of
collective leadership in the name of
President Jean Claude Duvalier,
21-year-old son of Francois "Papa
Doc" Duvalier, who died April 21,
1971. The time since the
64-year-old dictator's passing has
been one of the most tranquil in
Haiti's recent history.
Except for the firing of two
defense ministers in the past two
months, there have been no
political upheavals, exile invasions
from abroad or widespread purges
carried out internally. All of these
actions marked the days of Papa
Doc, who ruled with a strong hand
from 1957.
Haiti has been enjoying a mild
economic resurgence, with
improved tourism and foreign
investment, while the younger
Duvalier's administration has
sought to create a new image for
the country, which shares the island
of Hispaniola with the Dominican
Republic.

REYKJAVIK, Iceland
(AP) Two eruptions from a
volcano silent for over 1,000
years sent thousands of
terrified Icelanders fleeing for
safety Tuesday as the
government ordered the mass
slaughter of all livestock,
horses and sheep on the island
of Heymaey, 70 miles from the
capital of Reykjavik.
The first eruption came
early Tuesday morning and was
followed by a second from
another crater some hours
later. By then, the whole 5,300
townsfolk of Vestmannyjar
had fled, panic-stricken, to the
harbour where an armada of
ships and planes was hastily
organized to evacuate them.
The lava stream from both
craters was threatening the
outskirts of the town as the
evacuation to the mainland got
underway, but no casualties
were reported. A few hours
after the first eruption, at least
3,500 people had been taken
aboard the fleet of fishing
boats, costal steamers and little
craft that had rushed to the
town's little harbour and were
on their way to mainland
safety.
Women, children and the
sick from the town's hospital
were taken to the island
airstrip made hazardous by
tumbling hot ashes -- for
emergency flights to safety.
A pilot flying a rescue
mission said the sea around the
island was lit up like a busy
street by the hundreds of small
rescue boats.
U.S. ambassador Frederic
Irving called on the Iceland
ministry of foreign affairs, to
inform them that Washington
had authorized all possible help
and facilities to help the
stricken islanders. He said
money would be made
available to help meet all
emergencies.
The majority of the island's
total export of fish comes from
the Heymaey. The disaster
could cause a serious
disruption in the industry

A late awakening


By ETIENNE DUPUCH
IN AN address to the Bahamas Chamber of Commerce on
Wednesday, January 17th, the Minister of Tourism emphasized
the importance of attracting quality travellers to the Bahamas.
By quality he really meant monied tourists.

I don't know that it serves any purpose for me to continue
writing for The Tribune. For good or ill, the die has been cast.
The future course for the Bahamas has been set. And so I hope
that very soon now someone will be found to take over this
column from me.
But as long as I continue to write this column 1 will tell my
readers the truth as I see it.

Ever since the day the PLP gained control of the Government
they have been pulling down standards that attracted quality
tourists in the past.
Today I will quote two extracts from articles I wrote several
months ago sounding a warning to the Government. Tomorrow I
will discuss some of the things that made the Bahamas attractive
to quality tourists. These qualities in the life of the Bahamas no
longer exist.

On Wednesday, August 30, 1972 1 wrote:
Just before the PLP government took over, the late Sir
Stafford Sands had set one million tourists a year as the target of
the Ministry of Tourism.
That year the target was passed.
The new Minister of Tourism has been working hard to greatly
increase this number .... and he has succeeded.
But he has gone out and brought in the dregs of travellers. The
result is that fewer and fewer desirable tourists are now coming
into Nassau.
Even though the hotels may have heavy bookings, they are not
making money. And the staff in hotels are unhappy because these
people have no money with which to tip.
I saw a group of tourists going into a major hotel .... a
supposedly first class place .... a few days ago. They had parcels in
their hands. I was told by a member of the staff that the parcels
they carried were "chicken in the bag". He said that most of the
people who now come to this hotel go out and buy cheap lunches
which they take to their rooms .... that these people leave chicken
bones all over the floor in their rooms!
On Saturday I received a phone call from a woman living at
one of the big hotels on Paradise Island. She identified herself as a
friend of a friend of mine in the U.S. She said that she and her
husband were here on holiday. She had heard about me from my
friend who told her that if she needed any help to contact me.
She said that they just could not stand the atmosphere in the
hotel. It was just terrible. She had tried other hotels but they
were all full. Could I help them?
I got them in with friends who have a fine house with a
beautiful garden.
Today's mail brought me a letter from this woman thanking
me for getting them into a place that was representative of the
desirable old Nassau. She said that they had decided to check out
and return to Miami when she called me as a last resort.
"Thanks to you," she wrote, "We had a delightful time in
Nassau this past weekend. Up until the time I phoned you, we
were ready to pack up and return to the United States .... my
husband and I both want to thank you again for coming to our
rescue and helping to make our visit to Nassau such a pleasant
one."
This kind of report reaches us from all sides .... all of which
shows that the PLP government has dragged everything in the
colony in the dust.
It won't be easy for anyone to raise the standard of tourists
coming to Nassau. When desirable people are driven out ....
nothing can be done to bring them back again.

On Thursday, October 26, 1972 I wrote:
THE RESTRICTIONS placed on the Bahamian dollar have
attracted widespread attention in the foreign press.
In its Business Section The Miami Herald of October 20th
reviewed the announcement made by the Monetary Authority.
The article was illustrated with a $3 bill.
The $3 bill is a rarity. When the currency was changed from
the pound sterling to the dollar decimal system the late Sir
Stafford Sands, who was then Minister of Finance, issued the $3
note because he felt it would attract the attention of collectors. It
did.
It is possible that the Bahamas is the only country in the world
with a $3 note.

"Reacting to the Bahamas Monetary move," the article,
written by James Russell, the Herald's Financial Editor reports,
"a big foreign exchange dealer in Miami said Thursday it was
limiting its purchases of Bahamian dollars.
"Pereras Co. quoted a retail buying rate of 93 cents for a
Bahamian dollar and said the most it would buy from any one
customer was about $40 worth or maybe up to $50 in some
instances.
"A Miami banker, familiar with foreign exchange markets,
described the Pereras action as a sensible precautionary move in
light of the Bahamian restrictions.
'They can't afford to buy large quantities of the Bahamian
money,' he said. 'To get rid of it, they would have to sell it to
people going over there and that limits the market.'
"The Bahamian action was designed to stem the outflow of
foreign exchange reserves from the islands, which have been in a
worsening economic squeeze for nearly two years.
"While tourist numbers have been up in recent months over
years-ago totals, tourist spending as a whole has declined.
Tourism is the islands' dominant industry."

THE FULL TEXT OF VIETNAM PEACE AGREEMENT


WASHINGTON (AP)-Here is the text of the White House

SPEECH BY THE RIGHT HON. Sm ALEC DOUGLAS-HOME, KT.
m P. SECRETARY OF STATE FOR FOREIGN AND COMMON-
WEALTH AFFAIRS. AT THE OPENING SESSION ON
12 DECEMBER. 1972
Your Excellency. Honourable Prime Minister. Honourable Leader of
the Opposition, Senators and Honourable Members of the House of
Assembly of the Commonwealth of the Bahamas: May I on behalf of
the British Government welcome you all to London and thank you all
for accepting our invitation to come for this conference, so important for
the destiny of your country.
It is particularly appropriate that we should be meeting here in this
historic Marlborough House. It was here in 1968 that the constitution
granting self-government to the Bahamas was moulded. The conference
starting today is therefore the continuation of that process, the bringing
of the Commonwealth of the Bahamas to independence and full
sovereignty.
It has long been the declared and sincere policy of successive British
Governments to lead the dependent territories of what was once the
British Empire to independent status. Then they can stand on their own
feet and be counted among the free sovereign nations in their own right
The policy really started with Lord Durham's great report on the
affairs of British North America in the 1830's. From this report emerged
the philosophy of granting self-government to dependent territories and
encouraging them along the way to full independence. This philosophy
has remained at the heart of our constitutional efforts.
The most recent territories to have achieved independence have been
Tonga and Fiji in 1970, but no fewer than 36 overseas territories for which
Britain was formerly responsible have attained full sovereign independence.
Their population totals some 900 million people. Leaving aside the
Associated States in the West Indies, there remain now only 18 dependent
territories for which the United Kingdom continues to be responsible.
They have a population of something over 5 million people. The second
largest is the Bahamas which enjoys the most advanced form of
constitution short of full independence.
I want to repeat the well-known policy of Her Majesty's Government
towards the future of the remaining dependent territories. Our guiding
principle is to respond to the wishes of the peoples concerned. It is not
our intention to delay independence for those territories who want it; nor
is it our wish to impose it on those who do not.
You, Mr. Prime Minister, have recently held an election in the Bahamas
at which early independence was the main issue. You won this election
with a large majority and 60 per cent of the popular vote was in favour
of the policy of independence. Furthermore, Honourable Leader of the
Opposition, your party was not against the principle of independence,
though you favoured its coming at a somewhat slower pace. So there is
this identity of interest between you, and a resolution in favour of
independence has passed through your legislature without a dissenting
vote. I therefore trust that this conference may produce the full agreement
on constitutional arrangements which will serve the Bahama Islands.
guaranteeing the future stability of the new state and the democratic rights
of its peoples.
Mr. Prime Minister, your legislature has, even in advance of this
independence conference, passed a resolution that the Bahamas should
seek to become a member of the Commonwealth. I understand that this
is the first time that a territory on the threshold of independence has
passed such a resolution in advance even of preparin its independence
constitution.
Your Excellency. Honourable Gentlemen, I have no wish at this stage,
at this formal opening of your independence conference, to touch on the
business which will be proper to the conference itself, but I am confident
that your deliberations under the chairmanship of the Minister of State.
Lord Balniel. will be fruitful and that from this meeting will emerge an
independence constitution which will fulfil the hopes and desires of the
people of the Bahamas. So these are our hopes, and I wish yoq very well
in the conference which lies ahead.
I would like, if I may, to invite Mr. Pindling and Mr. Isaacs to make
a few remarks to us at this opening stage.

SPEECH BY THE HON. L. O. PINDLING. M P. PRIME MINISTER
OF THE COMMONWEALTH OF THE BAHAMAS, AT THE
OPENING SESSION ON 12 DECEMBER, 1972
Your Excellency the Governor, the Right Hon. Secretary of State, the
Right Hon. Chairman of the conference, the Hon. Father of our emerging
nation, my Hon. Deputy Prime Minister, the Hon. Leader of the
Opposition, distinguished delegates to this conference, ladies and
gentlemen: some 480 years have gone by since Christopher Columbus
landed on the island of San Salvador and the Bahamian archipelago of
islands, rocks and cays lost their sovereignty in man's ancient and
unrelenting quest for possessions and riches. Some 325 years have gone
by since one of those islands, the one known as Eleuthera, attempted to
re-establish her sovereignty in a political entity separate and apart from
the remainder of the islands in the archipelago but the attempt failed.
The quest may be just as unrelenting today, but nevertheless, we the
official delegates to this historic conference and the true presentatives
of the Bahamian people have been singled out by those sam people to
be the instruments through which and by which that long lost sovereignty
would be regained. We are happy to be here on such an occasion.
Mr. Secretary of State, the national delegation of the Bahams to this
conference comprises both Government and Opposition representatives, and.
on their behalf, I should like, firstly, to thank Her Majesty's Government
for so readily agreeing to host this conference at relatively short notice ad,
secondly, to thank you for your very kind words of welcome. We deem it
a signal honour that you personally were able to convene this opening
session of our conference. I have little doubt that this conference, under
the capable chairmanship of the Right Hon. Minister of State, will be fair.
fruitful and without rancour. I am reinforced in this view by reason of the

SPEECH BY Mr. K. L. ISAACS, c a. Qc, rP. LEADER OF THE
OPPOSITION IN THE BAHAMAS, AT THE OPENING SESSION
ON 12 DECEMBER. 1972
Right Hon. Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs,
Your Excellency. Hon. Prime Minister, distinguished delegates, ladies sad
gentlemen: I would like, first of all. on behalf of my delegation, to thank
the Right Hon. Secretary of State for the courtesies extended to us siae
our arrival in London to attend this historic conference. I would like also
to express our gratitude to the officers of the Bahamas Government who
have assisted us since our arrival. To all of you our sincere thanks.
I have stated that this is an historic occasion. It is an important event
in the life of the Commonwealth of Nations and it is perhaps the most
important event so far in the life and development of the Commonwealth of
the Bahama Islands.
Though far-flung and small, the Bahamas has been able to develop a
model of the British parliamentary system of democracy which is one of
the most treasured possessions of our people. Indeed, the Bahamas
Parliament ranks among the most ancient in the Commonwealth and, we
like to think, amongst the most honourable as well.
By contrast with some territories, our progress has been steady and
orderly. We have managed on occasion, however, to generate enough
political heat to demonstrate the vitality of Bahamian life and intense
interest which many of our people hold in the public affairs of their country.
As I am sure all of us here are aware, the Free National Movement has
the support of 40 per cent of the Bahamians who voted in the recent
elections, a 40 per cent who feel that independence for our Commonwealth
at this time is both unnecessary and unwise. Nevertheless we recognize
the necessity for a responsible opposition realistically to accept the
declaration of a majority of the Bahamian electorate, albeit only a
marginal not an overwhelming majority.
If independence for the Bahamas is indeed now at hand, then we say
that there is a grave responsibility for each of our delegations so to co-
operate in a spirit of give and take that the Bahamian people win thereby
gain as much as possible. Let us proceed mindful of the fact that the
future of a great little country and a fine people will be influenced for good
or for ill by what we do here in this conference hall over the days ahead.
That is why we of the Opposition are here today. We intend to play
a vigorous part in the drafting of a fair and just independence constitution
for the Bahamas. We are fully committed to carry out our functions as
energetically as possible within the framework of the constitution. We
hope that our participation will contribute to peace and prosperity under
the present administration. Nevertheless, as we contemplate the onerous
burdens which fall upon the Government let me hasten to assure the Prime
Minister and his colleagues that we will take the first constitutional
opportunity to relieve them of those burdens.
Right Hon. Secretary of State, distinguished delegates, in spite of our
ups and downs over the centuries, we in the Bahamas have enjoyed a
good fortune which is almost legendary. I hope it is an omen of further
good fortune that we have come together to perform this great task in the
advent of the holiday season. At least. I hope that the Yuletide will inspire
us to work out our problems in a spirit of mutual affection and respect.
More important, it is my further hope that our affection and respect for
our people will lead us to produce for them the gift of a strong and
democratic constitution which will stand the test of time and which will
withstand the attacks of any would.be tyrants.
Then. when we have finished our work, as much as we are enjoying our
stay in this great city, we would like to express our gratitude to our English
friends for their hospitality and to wish them a merry Christmas as we
return to our own islands in the sun.

By Abigail Van Buren
DEAR ABBY: I am 77 years old and Max is 80. We've
been married for 60 years and have no complaints. Max
has always been a flashy dresser. He wears a nice-sized
diamond ring and a diamond stickpin. I have a four-carat
diamond ring which I don't wear any more because I am
afraid of being robbed or killed. Max said as long as I'm
not wearing my diamond, he would like to make it into a
ring for himself.
Abby, it's not that I don't want him to have the dia-
mond, it's just that I am afraid of what might happen to
him.
Since I have refused Max the ring, he is barely speak-
ing to me. He also quit making love to me every Sunday
afternoon which he has done for 60 years. I suppose I
could live without it, but I got so accustomed to it, feel


deprived.
Should I give him the ring so be will be his old sweet
and loving self again? NEW YORK POST READER
DEAR READER: If he doesn't realize tlht you de't
want him to have the ring because you are concerned about
his welfare, shame on him. [P. S. Someone holdd tell him
If he doesn't use It, he'll lose it, and I dom't mean the riag.1
DEAR ABBY: My husband and I lve in a small apart-
ment and have only a dining area adjoining the kitchen.
I had a small dinner party-my husband's boss and his
wife, another couple, and us. I had no help, which was no
problem as I am well organized.
After the dessert, the boss' wife said, "Oh, let's clear
the table." So we three women cleared the table. Then the
boss' wife said, "Oh, heck, why don't we do up these few
dishes?" And she sounded like she really meant it.
Since the men were talking business in the other room
I didn't see anything wrong with it, so we three laughed
and talked and did up the dinner dishes. Then we joined the
men. Everyone seemed to have had a wonderful time.
After the guests went home my husband had a fit. He
said I should not have let the women do the dishes. I tried
to explain it was the boss' wife's idea, but he said I could
have [and should have] talked her out of it.
Abby, I still think I did the right thing. What do you
think? CAUGHT THE DICKENS
DEAR CAUGHT: I think you did, too.

mainstay group the potato
family -- and this one too is a
good addition to the dieter's
menu. A medium red pepper
contains only 30 calories. If
you really want a low count,
get the green ones. They come
in at 20 calories each.
The botanical genus of
Capsicum includes all the
peppers including the hot
peppers which go into the
production of cayenne pepper
and tabasco or hot sauce. The
name, by the way, is Latin for
box or chest referring to the
fruit which is almost empty
except for the columns of
seeds.
The plant is thought to be
native to tropical America, but
it may have grown wild in the
tropical regions of Europe and
Asia. No one knows for sure,
but today, peppers in one form
or another, are grown all over
the tropical world.
Green peppers should never
be relegated to just another
ingredient for salads. They are
extremely versatile as
appetizers, entrees and even
entire meals in themselves with
the help of fillings.
A very good appetizer is
made with green peppers and
anchovies. Wash several large
green peppers and place under
the broiler until the skins
blister. Let the peppers cool,
then peel and seed, and quarter
them lengthwise.
Combine a quarter cup salad
or olive oil with a tablespoon
white wine vinegar, a mashed
garlic clove, salt and pepper.
Pour over the peppers in a
bowl and let it stand overnight.
Drain the peppers and
arrange on a serving dish. Place
an anchovy in each.
WITH GARLIC
Here is a nice garlicky one.
Cut two red and two green
peppers into squares. Thickly
slice four large carrots. Peel,
seed and cut lengthwise two
cucumbers.
In a large cooking pot,
combine three quarts water
with a bouquet garni composed
of a few sprigs of celery,
parsley, a bay leaf and some
thyme. Add two tablespoons
cider vinegar and two
teaspoons salt. Bring to a boil.
Add the carrots first and
cook for 10 minutes. Then put
in the other vegetables and
cook for 10 more minutes.
Drain and serve with garlic
butter made by combining
three-quarters cup butter and
two crushed garlic cloves. Melt


--BEST BUYS -
BESIDES green peppers,

strain and pour over the
vegetables.
CASSEROLE
For a casserole, slice green
peppers, onions and tomatoes
and arrange them in alternate
layers in an oven-proof dish.
Pour over the vegetables a
quarter cup oil mixed with a
crushed clove of garlic, salt and
pepper. Cover the dish and
bake at 350 degrees for 45
minutes.
You wouldn't think of green
peppers as a base for soup but
they certainly can be.
Saute two chopped and
seeded green peppers and one
chopped onion until onions are
golden. Add two cups broth
and a quarter teaspoon
oregano. Simmer for 10
minutes and puree in a blender
for a few seconds.
Melt a tablespoon butter in a
small saucepan and add a
tablespoon flour and a bit of
salt. Cook until bubbly.
Remove pan from heat and
gradually add a cup of milk.
Return to heat and simmer
until thickened. Stir in the

Aquinas girls win their first,


St Annes still unbeaten

By GLADSTONE THURSTON
JOYCE THOMPSON dumped in 24 points and F ..a Grant
added another II to pace Aquinas College Senior Girls to a 50-26
victory over Prince Williams Senior Girls yesterday at the
Garfunkel Auditorium in the Inter-School Basketball Series


After being held tied at four
all for the first few minutes of
the first quarter, Thompson
scored one of two free throws
which she followed by a
15-footer rimless moving
Aquinas to a 7-4 first quarter
lead.
Prince Will regained the lead
early in the second quarter on
three consecutive baskets by
Agnes Minns which placed
them 10-7. This they held until
Thompson added a runaway
shot and Grant pushed up an
offensive rebound placing
Aquinas in the lead for the
remainder of the game. Debbie
Rahming and Minns swopped a
basket each as Aquinas
controlled the lead 14-13.
Inaccurate passes and
shooting plagued both sides,
but Aquinas acquired the
better of the play as they held
Prince Will to 13 while Grant
on another offensive rebound
increased them to 16 and
Rahming and Thompson on
layups each, gave Aquinas a
20-13 2nd quarter lead.
Although Prince Will had an
advantage of height with Patty
McQuay, Yvonne Brown and
Zennarene Stubbs, they lacked
the ball handling ability
displayed by Thompson, Grant
and Rahming who, teaming up
with Sandra Sweeting, held
Prince Will to three points
while they popped in another
18 to take a 38-16 command.
Prince Will at the beginning
of the fourth quarter
controlled most of the ball but
their attempts at the basket
were futile. Eventually, Hattie
Moxey on a layup inched them
to 18.
Aquinas, who started their
secondary five in the fourth
quarter, brought on their
starting five which saw them
move 45-22 in the lead.
Inaccuracies again hit Prince
Will who fell two behind in the
fourth quarter scoring, (12-10),
and had Aquinas winning their
first in three games. Moxey
scored I1 and Minns added
eight for Prince Will.

A. F. ADDERLEY High
Senior Girls overpowered St.
John's College 21-16 yesterday
giving them their first loss of
the 1973 Inter-School Senior
Girls Basketball series.
Adderley High, pace by
Carolyn Smith with 10 points,
took an early lead which they
held by four points going into
the third quarter when St.
John's on a rally took the lead
13-12 by the end of that
quarter.
In the last quarter, however,
Adderley High came through
and regained the lead to win

FREEPORT CRUSHERS
THE BAHAMAS American
Football League Champion the
Nassau Jets, retained their
unbeaten record when they
blitzed the Freeport 8 Mile
Rock Crushers 42-6 in
Freeport over the weekend.
The 8 Mile Rock Crushers
held the BAFL Champions to a
score of 14-6 up to half time,
but the Jets showed no mercy
as they piled on the pressure in
the third and fourth quarters,
scoring 38 points.
For the Jets Don Huyler
and Bruce Russell emerged
from the game with two
touchdowns each while Basil
'Barr' Davis and Earl Bostwick
accounted for the other two
touchdowns. Quarterback
Jesse Ferguson threw four
touchdown passes for the
Champions.
The Crushers are members
of the Freeport American
Football League, but it is
rumoured that they might join
the BAFL for the up-coming
season.

Carlo Rally rivers
MONTE CARLO (AP)- The
blizzard-swept Burzet Plateau in
southern France decimated the
field in the Monte Carlo Rally for
the second year running Tuesday. A
total of 14S competitors were
eliminated when the road was
closed after dozens of cars skidded
into deep snowdrifts.
Only 63 of the 208 cars which
arrived at the start of the Burzet
high speed test got through and
continued the second stage of the
rally. The Burzet was the third of
nine special stages.
A fighting comeback by the
French Alpine Renaults on the
fourth stage put Sweden's Over
Andersoon, 1971 winner, in the
lead ahead of teammate Jean-Luc
Therler and relegated Italy's Sandro

Maura's & Sawyer's pull off upsets

THE LADIES MAURA'S TEAM finally won three games in one night as they upset the pennant
contending New Oriental Laundry. Sawyers continue to do their thing, pull off upsets. They did it
again to the all powerful City Market.


Behind the leadership of
Bruce Delancy 211(507) and
Charles Cooke 189(503)
Sawyer's pulled off another
two game win over the mighty
City Market. Upset? This
perhaps is no longer true since
Sawyer's always seems to win
two or three games from the
big teams like City Market and
Mercury .
Ronnie Turnquest 201(559)
and Winston Bethel 202(546)
shot the best scores for the
foodmen.
Out Island Airways
continued winning as they
took two games from Mercury.
O.I.A. are now in sole
possession of first place in the
Plaza league.
Rookie Leslie Pinder
206(548) turned in a most
respectable score of the
mariners.
Finco outlasted Home
Furniture as they won two
evenly balanced matches. Percy
Knowles and Herbert Roberts
(541) scored high for Finco
and Home Furniture


respectively.
Having to bowl twice this
week, a few interesting things
have happened. On Wednesday
Amoury's and Super Value
moved into a tie for first place
with New Oriental Laundry
only one game behind.
The powerful Amoury won
three games easily from
Maura's. Rosie Saunders
203(535) and Pallas Roberts
200(526) guided Amoury's in
their victories as Tootsie
Thompson mustered the best
score for Maura's.
Thompson's won 21' games
from Home Furniture as Joan
Graham and Ivy French scored
high for H.F.C. and
Thompson's respectively.
On Friday Maura's pulled
off an upset over New Oriental
Laundry as they won all three
games, the first time this
season that Maura's have won
all three games. Tootsie
Thompson 207(507) had a
good set for Maura's as Joyce
Waugh was top for N.O.L. This
knocked N.O.L. for a loop as
