BOY SETS SCHOOL AFIRE AS REVENGE
PARIS (AP) A 14-year-old schoolboy was jailed Sunday pending court
action after he admitted setting fire to his school "as a revenge," police
said. The blaze last Tuesday killed 2 1 persons.
Another boy of the same age also was jailed for complicity, while five
others were questioned but not arrested, police reported. Their identities
were not given; IFrench law forbids identification of accused persons
Police said the boy who admitted setting the fire told them he did it
because "I had enough of always being admonished for faults I did not
have and of being always suspected of blunders made by my schoolmates. I
wanted to take a revenge."
PRINCESS ANNE VISITS SOVIET DESTROYER
MASSAWA, ETHIOPIA (AP) Princess Anne's footsteps aboard a
Soviet destroyer Sunday may make a footnote in history, a British
Embassy spokesman said.
He expressed belief that it was the first time a member of the British
Royal Family had boarded a Soviet warship a half-century after King
George V, Anne's great-grandfather had refused to accept the first Soviet
Ambassador sent from Moscow to london.
The 22-year-old daughter of Queen Elizabeth II spent nearly half an
hour on the Skritnii, Russia's representative at the combined east-west
naval manoeuvres during Ethiopian navy days. She enjoyed champagne and
caviar in the officers' mess.
The annual manoeuvres feature friendly exchanges among rival navies.
More than two dozen American sailors boarded the Skritinii on Sunday to
trade hats and belt buckles with the Russians.
Anne also visited the USS lasalle. an American landing platform dock
converted as a flagship for Rear Adam. Robert Hanks, Commander of
Middle East Forces. She also toured vessels from Iran, France, India and

IL .S. AMBASSADOR TO U.N. ANSWERS QUESTIONS -
WASHINGTON (AP) Feb. 12 (AP) The new U.S. Ambassador to
the United Nations, John Scali, said the United States feels there is a
a "dangerous precedent" in holding an upcoming U.N. Security Council
meeting in Panama to discuss Panama's dispute with the United States over
the Panama Canal treaty. He said it was "highly unlikely" the United
States would walk out of the meeting.
Scali said it is premature to discuss diplomatic recognition of North
Vietnam by the United States, but he indicated it's a definite possibility
for the future. The United States, he said, has "every intention of
developing normal and friendly relations with North Vietnam" after there
is peace throughout Indochina.
When asked whether North Vietnam is likely to gain admittance to the
a United Nations, Scali said "recognition of Hanoi is not to be ruled out."
i Scali also said he thinks the United States will offer a new peace
9 initiative in the Middle East "at some appropriate moment."
MOVE TO PLUG FOREIGN EXCHANGE LEAKAGE
KINGSTON, JAMAICA, FEI B. 12 (AlP) Financial Secretary of the
Turks and Caicos Islands S-G-Trees arrived in Jamaica Saturday for talks
with the Bank of Jamaica following notification to the former dependency
to discontinue using Jamaican currency.
The Jamaican action is another move to plug a potential source of
foreign exchange leakage, a government spokesman said. A Grand Turk
source said the notification first served last October posed the
dilemma of Turks and Caicos not having any legal currency.
A government spokesman said the move was to prevent Turks Islands
from becoming a source of foreign exchange leakage as was the case with
the Cayman Islands before they adopted their own currency last May.
A spokesman said an attempt would he made to work out some
arrangements with Turks and Caicos that would not endanger Jamaican
The Bank of Jamaica declined to make any public disclosure at this stage
as a spokesman said the matter was of a confidential nature.

By ETIENNE DUPUCH
ON HIS recent trip to England Prime Minister Pindling stopped
in New York to look for possible quarters to house a Consulate
General when the Bahamas goes independent in July.
In a radio interview on ZNS he said that he had found the
available quarters for the Bahamas representation "too expensive
and too elaborate".
"We thought we should look for something less expensive and
smaller quarters," he added.
At long last the Government is discovering that independence
for a small nation like the Bahamas is an expensive business.
There are two things the Opposition in the House and The
Tribune have been trying for a long time unsuccessfully to find
out from the Government for the information of the public.
First, how much money the Government has borrowed since it
gained control of the Bahamas six, years ago; the source of this
money; and how much interest is being paid on these loans.
The Government avoided a question in the House by an
Opposition member as to whether any of this money has come
from Communist sources.
The nearest anyone has got to knowing the extent of the
colony's debt was a statement in the 1971 Estimates .... that was
nearly two years ago .... that this once solvent country was then
paying $11 million interest annually on money borrowed by the4
They have borrowed more money since. It is estimated that
they have borrowed $200 million or more .... and what do they
have to show for it?
The second question was what would it cost the tax payer to
maintain an independent state?
Now it would appear that even the Prime Minister had no clear
idea of.the cost of independence.
"Independence at any price" seems to have been the
, Government's approach to this question. Now that they have cut
the bridges behind the Bahamian people they are finding that this
is going to be a costly business.
is gon tob -. .**** -s
People spend money for several reasons.
The primary reason for spending money is to gain some
It is either to make provision for a family or to gain more
money in a sound investment.
The time comes in the lives of some people when they have
more money than they need and they can afford to indulge in
Out of a clear blue sky .... only a few days after telling the
English Press that there was no thought of independence for the
Bahamas in the foreseeable future .... Prime Minister Pindling
declared that from where he sat he could see many advantages for
an independent Bahamas.
Since then he has not been able to point out a single thing the
Bahamian people will gain by independence.
The Government may be able to gouge some money out of
poor old gullible Uncle Sam. But to what purpose?
Already the Government has received a loan of $11 million to
build schools and train children for jobs in a falling job market.
And it has received a gift of $10 million to develop farming and
produce food for which there is no market.
And so, even if easy money flows into the Government's
coffers, it will pour out like in a sieve in unwise and extravagant
spending on impractical projects.
In just about everything this Government has done in the last
six years they have exhibited the same kind of inexperience the
Prime Minister has now revealed when he admits for the first time
that independence costs big money.
And the poor taxpayer will pay the bill!
Well ... it's the voter's doing and so he should not grumble
when the burden falls on his back.
But certainly the Bahamas wvll not settle for poor offices and
inferior accommodation for its representative and his staff in the
U.S. and London .... or wherever else the Government decides to
establish representation for the Bahamas.
Indeed, I don't think anyone who is selected for the job will
permit any such arrangement to last too long.
It is a standing joke among people in high public positions in
Europe that the representatives of African states .... and some of
the small newly independent countries .... always want to appear
in public in the biggest and most expensive cars. Their countries
are living on doles from Britain and the U.S. but still they seem to
feel that they can impress people by extravagant living!
I am told that when some members of the Bahamas
Government now travel abroad they live in the most expensive
hotels and drive around in big chauffeured limousines.
And so the Government will have to go right on borrowing
more and more money to maintain this kind of extravagance.
But, as I have said earlier in this article, the public should not
grumble, however heavy the burden may become, because this is
a Frankensteinian monster of their own making.
Last week we published a letter from a supporter of the
Crippled Children's Fund who expressed shock at the fact that
one of the cars had been won by a member of the Committee.
He wanted to know whether it- was correct that members of
my Committee were not allowed to buy tickets in the raffle.
In answering his question I stated what had been the policy of
my Committee and how the draw was conducted.
And then I added that in 1963 my son Pierre had won a car in
a Sports Raffle .... nothing to do with the Crippled Children
Committee's raffle .... and that he had sold it and divided the
proceeds between three charities.
As far as I can remember he gave the money to the Crippled
Children's Fund, St. Augustine's Education Fund, and the
I can remember the date because I was in England at the time

from Representative to Responsible Government. When he wrote

Praises Isaacs on leadership
EDITOR The Tribune,
It is with much regret that I
write this letter, as I promised
myself never to write to the
paper again after the PLP won
the election and since Sir
Etienne Dupuch left the
Bahamas, but I am compelled
to write about the current
"duel" between FNM leader
Kendal Isaacs and Marsh
Harbour M.P. Errington
I agree, when the FNM took
part in the last General
Election they did so on a
no-Independence ticket, but
the election dust has now been
long cleared and it is evident
that the majority of people in
all the Bahamas (except
Abaco) want Independence.
I disagree with the idea of
Abaco breaking away as it will
destroy what we have left of
unity, it might even cause a
civil war which could end up
like Viet Nam. so I strongly
congratulate the FNM
delegation to the Conference in
London last December for
making a few points which will
benefit all the FNM's in the
Bahamas, e.g. the part of
citizenship and also the part of
leaving after Independence.
Now, I know that many
people will disagree to what I
am saying and I guess that they
think I'm all for Independence.
Well, I'm not, but if Mr.

J.B.BARRY SPEAKS OUT
EDITOR, The Tribune,
I am urged to write this
letter in the best interests of
my country. I am embarrassed
about our Bahamian speakers
when they are making speeches
over Station Z.N.S., especially
on the "Let's Talk" or
"Question Time". I would like
if every speaker who goes on
Z.N.S. could take a tape

and I would like for my
Bahamian diplomats, since we
are going into Independence,
to begin practising having to
make public speeches, if they
are going to meet with nations
as a nation.
It is important that we, as
Bahamians, should learn more,
and sometimes we should listen
to the advice of a little child, as
far as I can see. We have too
many people around trying to
play at being God setting
themselves up as dictators, but
let me tell you something. The
only book out of all books the
Prophecies are fulfilling is the
Bible. The Bible told me "He
that humbleth himself will be
exalted, but he that exalteth
himself will be brought low".
Out of all books published, the
Bible sells more copies than
any other. Why? It is the only
book which comforts the
broken hearted and every word
which is spoken in it comes to
pass. My name is Joseph and I
was sold to Egypt for corn for
opposing a non-P.L.P.
Remember the story of Jacob
and his twelve sons.
Before ending this letter I
would like to give some advice
to all public servants, especially
those who have dealings with
foreign travel. There have been
a 6lot of complaints coming
from,Athe tourists, the W ty they
are handled by the ticket
agents at the counters in
Nassau and some of the Out

Officers and other
Remember, people, we are
dependent upon the tourist
dollar and we ought to be more
courteous to our guests,
especially our older folks who
need the care of every one of
us when they are travelling
through the Bahamas. How
nice it would be to say "Can I
help you, please?" What does it
take from one to be nice?
"What can I do for you, Sir?"
When a person has travelled
from far away by plane after
plane, being delayed by
off-schedule flights, how awful
it is for them to meet up with
sour faces. I do hope each and
every one of us will be more
polite to our bread baskets.
Are we going to bite or cut off
the hands that feeds us?
The youth of today before
taking up public positions
should be taught national
respect to our visitors and self
pride among themselves. I
know it is a hard thing to train
a child if it is not trained at
home, because the
environment a child is used to
will be carried abroad, so it
behoves all mothers and fathers
to train their children at home
to be courteous and kind to
every one they meet and the,
important thing is to be decent
and lead decent lives. All of
these things will make one'

If your tribute to Harry Truman was taped in advance,
did you have a premonition [thru E. S. P. or some kind of
psychic phenomenon] that Mr. Truman was going to die on
that day, or was it an incredible coincidence?
It was not only a beautiful tribute, it was Interesting
and informative. If you have a copy of that script, will you
please publish it in your column? I would like to keep it,
since Harry Truman was one of my heroes, too.
CURIOUS IN L. A.
DEAR CURIOUS: My tribute to Harry 'ruman was
taped at the Hollywood CBS radio station long before his
last Illness, and it was sheer coincidence that I scheduled It
to be aired on the very day he died. Altho I have some
fairly accurate premonitions, I lay no claim to having
E. S. P.
I read it frora a script which I had written months ago.
And here it is:
"Mr. Truman has long held a very special place in my
affection. Altho I do not collect autographed pictures of
celebrities, there is one hanging on the wall of my den of
"We never met, but we have a mutual friend--Mr.
David Noyes, who collaborated with Truman on his book
'Mr. Citizen.' Mr. Noyes told me that Bess and Harry
enjoyed reading Dear Abby in the Kansas City Star, where-
upon I told Mr. Noyes that I was a Truman fan, too. For
one thing, my late father bore a striking resemblance to
Truman-particularly in photographs. Same broad smile,
thinning hair, and spectacles. In addition, my father was a
devoted Democrat. I can still remember the horse laughs
Abe Friedman got back in Sioux City, Iowa, when he pre-
dicted that Harry Truman would beat Tom Dewey in 1948!
"SO I ASKED DAVID Noyes [who was on his way to
Independence, Mo.] to ask Mr. Truman to please send me
an autographed picture of himself. I received not only one
"The first bore a huge ink blot on the bottom, where
Truman's old-fashioned fountain pen had leaked [about
midway thru the inscription], but the second picture
was neatly inscribed, "With kindest personal regards to
Abe's daughter from Harry Truman, July 30, 1964."
"When the name of Harry Truman is mentioned, some
of his detractors will remind you that he couldn't even
make a success of a little haberdashery business in Kansas
City. They fail to mention [or perhaps did not know] that
Harry Truman refused to file bankruptcy and let his credi-
tors hold the bag. He paid back every cent-and it took him
10 years to do it!
"Not many people knew that after Harry's graduation
from high school in Independence he received an appoint-
ment to West Point, but was rejected because of poor
eyesight. However, he enlisted in the field artillery in
World War I, saw action abroad, and returned a captain.
"HE MARRIED BESS Wallace, his childhood sweet-
heart whom he had known since he was 7 and she was 6.
When they were married, Harry was 35 and Bess was S4.
"Harry went into politics in 1922 when he was elected
as one of the three presiding judges of Jackson County.

GENERAL TENDENCIES: The morning is fine
for communication and discussions with other
persons, but get it over shortly after noon, for about that time
a disruptive influence commences to work that can break up
plans carefully thought out, or could cause some accidental
conditions that could prove quite costly.
ARIES (Mar. 21 to Apr. 19) Put routine work behind you
quickly in a.m., but later be careful you do not get into
anything that can cause accidents or arguments. Show you can
handle calls efficiently. Relax in p.m.
TAURUS (Apr. 20 to May 20) Study your regular expenses
well and see where you can cut down on them as well as on
other expenditures. Important businessmen can give you the
data you need right now Gain their confidence easily.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 21) You can handle personal
affairs very well during a.m. and later carry through with dull
routines. You may have put some new ideas to work and must
not change them now. Avoid one who wastes your valuable
MOON CHILDREN (June 22 to July 21) Make sure you
listen to suggestions that experts give you and carry through
with them to the letter. Try to assist a friend in trouble in p.m.
Spend some time doing the things you really like.
LEO (July 22 to Aug. 21) Listening to the fine advice a
good pal gives you early makes it possible to carry through
with it later in the day. You see clearly how to gain some
personal aim in a.m also. Take stock of your progress in p.m.
VIRGO (Aug. 22 to Sept. 22) Take the right steps that will
improve your career and credit affairs. Pay the bills that are
important and let the others ride for a while. Collect from
those who have the money, but just don't want to pay.
LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Your ideas are very good. You
can now work on that plan you have formulated, but do so
early, otherwise you start being doubtful by p m Experts will
give you the help you want. Drive with utmost care.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Use ingenuity in handling
your responsibilities and do not disagree with others in p.m.
Talk problems over with mate in p.m., but don't get into any
arguments. Avoid one who is a troublemaker.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Try to find out what a
partner is thinking in a.m., then get busy with your own end
of affairs. Don't trust that tricky opponent, or you will get
hurt again. Keep pretty much on the alert, even with personal
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 20) If you plan well, you get
all of those obligations behind you quickly with the aid of
fellow workers. Persevere though you may feel out of sorts
later in the day. Find time to shop for new apparel.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 to Feb 19) Show appreciation for
persons you admire and then you can make them part of your
existence in the future Plan that amusement you want to have
early, and it all works out fine. Do some reading and relax
before you retire.
PISCES (Feb. 20 to Mar. 20) See what you can do about
helping those at home gain their fondest desires and show your
devotion to them. You are thinking clearly and can do much
to establish harmony both at home and in business life. Do
some light entertaining in p.m
IF YOUR CHILD IS DORN TODAY ... he or she wilt be
one of those high-strung but ingenious young people who
needs more than usual attention paid to the diet, also careful
discipline early. While young, teach to finish whatever has
been started. Give good religious training early that will
provide right incentive to activities during the lifetime and
bring the success that is possible, plus the happiness that is
deserved. Anything of a creative nature is fine here. Sports are

For McAlpine, the defending
League champions' outside
right Ray Simpson scored
twice, in the 30th and 88th
minutes, while Gavin Turner
and Phil Davis scored in the
26th and 85th minutes
respectively for League leaders
Luis Renoso scored from a
penalty for the Saints and
Colin Knight netted for Red
By their wins Tropigas stay
at the top of the Sunday
League table with 15 points
from 9 games and McAlpine
remain in second place with 13
points from 8 games.
Tropigas now play Dynamos
in their last game of the season
and unless something very
unforseen happens they will
finish the season with 17
COULD BE TIE
McAlpine therefore must
beat Red Lion next week
before they meet Dynamos -
two wins by the Clan will also
give them 17 points in which
case Tropigas and McAlpine
will meet to decide the winners
of the League Championship
The first game of the
afternoon saw the Clan fighting
hard to overcome a very
competent Saints team. The
Saints playing a cruder but
highly effective form of soccer
than McAlpine gave the Clan
what must have been their
toughest game of the season.
For the first 20 minutes
there was little to choose
between either side. The
McAlpine forwards found that
they were given considerably
less space in which to
manoeuvre than in previous
weeks, but in spite of this the
Clan attack spearheaded by
Simpson and Goodger,
managed to find ways through
the Saints' defence on several
After 30 minutes Simpson
put the Clan ahead with a
well-taken goal. The ball came
across from the right, following
a throwing, and Simpson
volleyed the ball from 20 yards
into the top of the net.
A minute later Simpson
nearly scored again when he
ran onto a through ball from
Goodger but a fine full length
dive by Pedrini foiled this
For long spells of the second
half Renoso, Minns and
Nicholls had the McAlpine
defence under considerable
pressure while Paco Nunez,

Woodside $3.50; Daily Double
(2-2) $30.20; Ist. Quinella (2-6)
controlled the Saints' backline
with extreme efficiency.
Crozier and Achibald held
the McAlpine defence together.
Crozier proved to be almost
unpassable for the greater part
of the game, tackling hard on
the ground and out jumping his
opponents in the air, with
surprising ease for such a large
Renoso equalized for the
Saints in the 70th minute with
a penalty and it wasn't until
the last 10 minutes of the game
that Simpson and Goodger
began to trouble the Saints
defence, while at the other end
Nunez had a shot cleared off
the line and Minns sent another
into the side netting.
Before Simpson scored his
winning goal Goodger and
Turner, who had been brought
on in place of Hodgson, came
close to scoring but with only
2 minutes remaining and a
draw seemingly inevitable,
Turner sent over a cross from
the right and Simpson rose
splendidly to head home.
The Tropigas-Red Lion clash
followed the same pattern as
the McAlpine-St. Georges
match, with striker Phil Davis
scoring the winning goal in the
last 5 minutes for the League
The first half saw both
teams creating frequent
chances. Don Maples broke
through the Tropigas defence
in the 17th minute but
Grimsby diving full length,
made an unbelievable
spectacular save to tip the shot
round the post.
With skipper Randy Rodgers
and midfield man Gavin Turner
back in their ranks the
Tropigas defence played well
throughout the game. Rodgers
and Turner operated mainly in
the middle while Gautaume
controlled the back four.
In the 25th minute Turner
burst through on the right and
struck a fine shot form a very
narrow angle which appeared
to swerve late after going over
Johnson in the Lion's goal, hit
the upper post and rebounded
into the net to put Tropigas
Tropigas dominated for
most of the second half
although Maples, Knight and
Hynes always looked
Colin Knight equalized for
Red Lion 20 minutes into the
second half but Phil Davis
scored in the 85th minute to
give Tropigas their seventh
