shot James Mitchell


Price: 15 Cents


NO WORD TODAY

FROM B.M.A.


Y i


in self -defence


By MIKE LOTHIAN
EDINBURGH SOLICITOR ANDREW McCULLOCH shot Jason Investments president James Mitchell on
October 24 in "self-defence" after Mitchell attacked him, a written statement made by McCulloch on October 25


morning said.
asking him about my money he
pinched from me. lie told me
that I'm not getting any, so I
persisted.
"Hle struck me with his fist
across the left side of my face
near my car. In self-defence I
shot him two times. I am not
quite sure but he got shot in
the left side. I cannot say
where the other shot caught
hi m.
"After I shot Mitchell we
had a long fight when he was
trying to get the gun off me.
Soon somebody came to his
assistance. The other person
who came there kept beating
me in my head with a large
stone. They finally got the
pistol off me," the McCulloch
statement read.


An earlier witness called by
Attorney General Gerald
C(ollett, Q.C., prosecuting
Robin MacNess of ('arefree
Apartments. ('able Beach,
testified under cross-examina-
tion that he had quit his job as
managing director of Jason
Investments after only six to
eight weeks, about two years
ago, because of broken
agreements and Mitchell's
"violent" disposition.
Mr. MacNess described
Mitchell as a man who was
"very difficult to reason with."
He added that during the few
weeks he was a part of the
Jason management team,
"Mitchell was involved in two
brawls which were
embarrassing to me and to the
company."
Mr. MacNess said Mitchell


prosecution this morning were
Alfred Joseph, Mitchell's
Haitian gardner, and local
attorney Ralph Seligman, a
neighbour.
Mr. Joseph said he was lying
in his bed, awake, when he
heard two shots. When
Mitchell called out to him he
ran around the house where he
saw, "McC(ullch lying on his
stomach and Mitchell on
McCulloch'1 back."
Hle said Mitchell instructed
him to twist McCulloch's arm
so he could take away the
pistol McCulloch held. Mr.
Joseph twisted McCulloch's
arm. Mitchell took the gun
away and McCulloch ran off.
Mr. Joseph said he and
Mitchell then walked inside the
house, where Mitchell
telephoned the police.
The gardner said lie first saw
the suitcase McCulloch
allegedly brought to the house,
"inside the house, by (lie front
door."
Mr. Seligmnan said that at
about 9:45 Oct. 24 he drove
past the Mitchell house on his
way home, and saw a man who
was "similar in appearance" to
McCulloch crouching beside
the road outside Mitchell's
House.
Mr. Seligman said he
continued on to his home,
about 30 yards away from the
Mitchell resident. About five
minutes later, he said, he heard
five shots. Going to a window
he could hear, coming from the
direction of the Mitchell house,
"groans, and some shouts."
The only words he was able to
distinguish were "I'll break in."
lie then heard a car drove
off "very fast." Attempting to
telephone Mitchell, Mr.
Seligman said he first got no
answer, and in subsequent
attempts there was a busy
signal.
At about 10:30 he said lie
heard an ambulance coming. It
stopped outside Mitchell's
house and left five minutes
later, he said.


and produced in court this
McCulloch is on trial in the
Supreme Court charged with
the attempted murder of
Mitchell.
The statement, which was
not objected to by defence
attorney J. Henry Bostwick,
was tendered in evidence by
Detective Corporal Charles
Miller of CID.
The statement said that
McCulloch arrived at the
Mitchell residence in the
Grove, West Bay Street, at
about 8 p.m.
"I knocked on the front
door. I got no immediate
answer so I went around to the
other door. While at that other
door I saw Mitchell at the door
where I was first.

put by defence lawyer


By MIKE LOTHIAN
FORMER EDINBURGH DENTIST James Mitchell denied
under cross examination in the Supreme Court Monday a defence
suggestion that a serious business disagreement sparked an
exchange of gunfire between himself and Scots solicitor Andrew
McCulloch on the night of October 24.


The prosecution in the
McCulloch trial for the alleged
attempted murder of Mitchell
has claimed McCulloch fired
five shots at Mitchell.
Defence attorney J. Henry
Bostwick on Monday
afternoon suggested that in
fact McCulloch only fired two
shots, and Mitchell fired the
other three from a gun of his
own.
And Mr. Bostwick sought
supporting testimony from a
ballistics expert who gave
evidence for the prosecution,
being conducted by Attorney
General Gerald Collett, Q.C.
Mitchell testified Monday
morning that McCulloch was in
Nassau on October 24, the day
of the shooting, in order to
attend a meeting of
shareholders of Jason
Investment (Bahamas) Limited,
a company controlled by
Mitchell and in which
McCulloch held minority
shares. The meeting scheduled
for October 25, was to be a
showdown between Mitchell
and others attempting to take
over Jason Investments.
Mr. Bostwick suggested to
Mitchell that when McCulloch
arrived at the Mitchell home in
the Grove on the night of
October 24 he told Mitchell
that he did not intend to vote
in his favour.
TUSSLE
"You had an altercation on
.he garden path," Mr. Bostwick
mut it to the witness. "You
;truck him, you tussled and
hen you pulled a revolver
rom your clothing and said,
this is what I do to people
Nho get in my way.' You fired
it the accused, and at that
moint McCulloch took shelter
around the side of the house.
"You pursued him," Mr.

Bostwick continued. "And
McCulloch caught you by
surprise by firing at you with
his own revolver."
Mitchell called the story "a
fairy tale." A former
professional bodyguard in
Palestine, Mitchell added:
"If I had shot at McCulloch
he wouldn't be standing in that
dock today he'd be in his
grave."
"That would depend on
what you intended by
shooting," Mr. Bostwick shot
back.
He said that a bullet taken
from Mitchell's body and two
spent .22 cartridge cases found
at the scene of the crime and
given to him for analysis by the
Bahamas police were all fired
in the .22 automatic pistol also
given to him by the police.
POSSIBILITY
Under cross-examination,
Mr. Hodge said that certain
markings on one of the spent
cartridges "could have been
made" by the shell failing to
eject after being fired and
being jammed in the breech of
the gun.
In a surprise move, Mr.
Bostwick produced a magazine
from an automatic pistol,
somewhat rusted and
containing six rounds of .22
ammunition. After some
experimentation, Mr. Hodge
said that clip held a total of
eight shots.
Mr. Bostwick said the
defence "alleges that this
magazine was in that pistol at
the time of the shooting," and,
as it contained only six bullets.
he said it supported the
defence suggestion that
McCulloch fired only two shots
that night, although other
witnesses heard five gunshots.
The weapon, when taken by
police from Mitchell's
premises, had no magazine in
it.
On re-examination by Mr.
Collett, Mr. Hodge said the clip
produced by Mr. Bostwick was
"certainly not" the only
magazine that could be used
with the .22 automatic pistol
exhibited in court.


occasion when I was at his
house his wife and another
director were also there we
were discussing people getting
in one's way.
"Hie told me if anyone got
seriously in his way in business
he would not hesitate to shoot
them. I said I had better watch
out then. He said that in fact
he had shot people before, and
his wife added that it was in
the course of his duty."
Mr. MacNess said he
remembered that occasion
because what was said he
included in a memo to the
persons who asked him to
come from Scotland to become
Jason's managing director,
"explaining why I could not
continue."
Summing up, Mr. MacNess
said Mitchell was "very
independent, has very strong
opinions. He was the sort of
man who two years ago I
decided I wanted nothing more
to do with. I would say he was
a violent man."
In his evidence-in-chief, Mr.
MacNess told the all-male jury
that McCulloch arrived in
Nassau on October 23, and
spent that night in his
apartment. The following (lay
he rented a car.
At 8 p.m. October 24, Mr.
MacNess said, McCulloch had
supper at the apartment with
him, and left at about 8:45
p.m. as persons invited to a
cocktail party began to arrive.
At about 11 p.m. "there was
a knock on the door and one
of the guests opened it. I heard
McCulloch's voice ask if I was
there, and I went outside to
him.
"liHe was very dishevelled
and hie was covered in blood.
"1 asked him what on earth
had happened. He was in a very
confused state and mumnibled
that there had been a 'bother'
at Mitchell's house.
"I told him to go downstairs
and sit in my car until I
managed to discreetly get rid
of my guests."
Getting rid of the guests
took half an hour, Mr.
MacNess said, and then he
drove McCulloch to the
apartment in Highbury Park of
a friend, Elizabeth Freedman.
"I told the girl I didn't know
what happened, but I was
pretty sure that if there had
been a fight he (McCulloch)
was in the right.
"I asked if I could take him
to lih apartment in case there
was a retaliatory attack he
couldn't be found."
Early the following morning,
MacNess picked up McCulloch
from the Highbury apartment
and drove him back to pick up
the rental car.
"That was the last time I
saw him before this case
commenced."

Bottling strikers take their



grievanceto PM, return to


work'only on his advice'


By NICKI KELLY
STRIKING WORKERS OF NASSAU BOTTLING COMPANY

meeting last night with Prime Minister Lynden Pindling.


Sales manager Basil Bullaid.
who has been acting asi
spokesman tfor the imen. toIlt
I lhe I tribune that "we are going
back on lthe Priie Minister's
advice because he was the only
one who sat down with tus ,nd
talked sense."
"' The week-long plant strike
dispute, prompted by a new
management take-over and the
appointment of Mr. Donald
Sealy as plant head, was
referred to Labour Minister
Clifford Darling yesterday
afternoon following a meeting
between workers and Mr.
Andrew "Dud" Maynard,
identified as the new
owner-president.
Bahamas Transport
Agricultural Distributive and
Allied Workers Union secretary
Maxwell Taylor was directed
by Mr. Darling to inform the
men to return to their jobs
today.
The Minister's contention
was that the new management
had not fired anyone. Further,
le felt that neither the workers
nor the union could tell
management who to hire, and
that the workers should have
followed normal grievance
procedure.
Angered by the ruling, the
workers immediately took off
for Prime Minister Lynden

Prosecuting Inspector Silas
Nixon offered no evidence on a
third charge that he had
received 27 forks, 25 knives,
four spoons and five blue
tablecloths valued at $40 from


Holiday Inn.
"What were yuu going to do
with all this silverware: open a
niew hotel'?" Magistrate
Hercules asked.
"Yes, sir," the accused
replied causing the magistrate
and spectators in the
courtroom to laugh.
Joseph. however, explained
that he took the items from
the hotel because he saw they
were just lying around and not
being used. He said he thought
that they were no longer
wanted
Police arrested Josephi
yesterday morning after they
saw him acting in a suspicious
manner in his car at 4 a.m. Mr
Nixon said.
A search of his car revealed
the silverware. Hle admitted

IHe agreed lto see three
representatives Irom I tihe
workers inside.
Mr. Bullard, who led their
delegation, said both the Primel
Minister and his wife had
received them well.
"Th e Prime Minister
indicated that lie was
sympathetic to our problem,
more so than anyone else with
whom we have had to deal.
"lie pointed out, however,
that we should have waited
before taking any hasty action.
While we had a case we had
lost it through our quick
action."
Mr. Bullard said the Prime
Minister had promised to look
into the matter. "We have
decided to go back to work
only because of the Prime
Minister and no one else," Mr.
Bullard emphasized.
ADVICE '

pay lot the we'el, t le workers
were oft tle Iiob a ind had been
plainly told by management

illegal.
The workers, among them
ia number of womenii, objected
strongly, claiming they had
cetamn bills to meet
A It hough they began
punching the ttie clock at
about 8 .30 ain there was still
a feeling of discontent.
Mr Bullard told The
Tribune that if "management
mishandles us we will be on lthe
road again. We will
demonstrate even if it means
bringing in new staff "
Ile said Mr Sealy was to
remain as plant manager, and

possibly Thursday or Friday. to Travis Air I orce Base in California.
Medical officers at (lark's 250-bed hospital where the men, dressed in
blue pajamas, were being processed said the returnees were in high spirits
and in generally good physical condition. (a SEE STORY THIS PAGE)
KISSINGER IN HONG KONG
HONG KONG, FEB. 13 (AP)--Henry A. Kissinger arrived in Hong Kong
Tuesday afternoon after delaying his departure from Hanoi for three hours.
There was no explanation for the delay.
Kissinger, President Nixon's National Security Adviser, had been in the
North Vietnamese capital since Saturday, conferring with top officials of
the Communist government about postwar relations between Washington
and Hanoi.
The White House said Kissinger's talks lasted a total of 1614 hours, but
he was not expected to divulge any information about them while in Hong
Kong.
He is scheduled to remain in IHong Kong until Thursday, when he flies to
Peking for talks there Feb. 15-19 with Premier Chou En-Lai. His stay in
Hong Kong was billed as a rest stop, and he scheduled no meetings with the
press.


SIX ESCAPE, TWO WARDENS SUSPENDED PENDING INQUIRY
KINGSTON, JAMAICA, (AP) One of six prisoners who escaped from
the maximum security wing of St. Catherine prison in Spanish Town last
Saturday was shot dead by police Monday.
Policemen cornered a number of men at the foot of Wareika Hills East
Kingston this morning and were satisfied that at least three of them were
among those who escaped from prison. The men opened fire on police,
who shot back. One fugitive was shot and killed and the others escaped.
An Assistant Superintendent Staff Warden and a Senior Warden have
been suspended from duties by director for prisons Liet. Col. Glen Mignon,
pending a departmental enquiry into all circumstances surrounding the
escape of the six. At the same time the staff at the prison has been
re-enforced, for the second time in weeks and a comprehensive check made
of the prison's security system.
The men got their freedom after wrenching off doors of their cells and
boring a hole through an outer wall 16 inches thick, through which they
climbed with the aid of rope fashioned from a prison blanket. They
climbed over the wall surrounding the prison, landing in the grounds of the
St. James Cathedral adjoining the prison.
22 HOSTAGES RELEASED AFTER 8-HOUR ORDEAL
DALLAS, TEX. (AI')--Two teenage gunmen, surrounded by nearly 100
police officers throughout the night, surrendered this morning about an
hour after releasing the last of 22 hostages they took more than eight hours
earlier.
The ordeal began when the two, one of them an escapee from a mental
hospital, were trapped during the attempted robbery of a bar in northeast
Dallas. They surrendered at 8:46 a.m. EST, peeping around the door and
then easing out of the bar.
They released the last six hostages at 7:25 a.m. EST after a police
detective told them: "I give you my word we are not going to raid the
place."
Before the surrender, authorities had said they were waiting for the
arrival of the father of one of the boys, Milton Allen Irank 18, who was
enroute from Las Vegas to talk to his son.
During the course of the night, the boys had demanded a car with a
tankful of gas and a plane to make a getaway.
Police said the trouble began at 10 p.m. Monday when the pair,
reportedly armed with a submachine gun, a pistol and a shotgun, burst into
the Inner Circle bar and demanded money. A customer slipped out while
the robbery was in progress and telephoned police. When the authorities
arrived, they said the youths threatened to shoot the hostages.
Police Detective Paul McCaghren kept up a marathon conversation with
the two through the evening and early morning.
Frank was identified as an escapee from the state mental hospital at
Terrell. His companion was identified as Robert Gordon, 17.
BODIES CHARRED BEYOND RECOGNITION
NEW YORK (AP)--The task of identifying victims of Staten Island's
liquid gas tank explosion moved at a snail's pace Monday, with 26 bodies
reco9lred from among 40 workmen unaccounted for.
Per J. Brennan, the new Seretary of Labour, paid a midday visit to

in an attempt "to be sure this could never happen ag.ie."'
Brennan said his office will launch a national survey of "other projects
of this kind, to be sure all safety precautions are taken." But the causeat
the disaster still was obscure. The tank was supposed to be empty of any
volatile materials, and had been worked on over a 10-month period by a
repair crew.
Fire Chief John O'Hagan directed the effort to recover bodies of victims,
charred beyond recognition almost to a man.
STENNIS STEADILY IMPROVING
WASHINGTON (AP) Physicians attending Senator John C. Stennis of
Mississippi, who was shot in a robbery Jan. 30, reported Monday that he
has shown encouraging progress. They held out the prospect he may be
going home from the hospital several weeks from now.
A statement from Walter Reed Army Medical Centre also said: "His
physicians have upgraded his condition from very serious to serious. The
prognosis has been changed from guarded to fair." "Guarded" means the
doctors couldn't say whether he would live or die.

MONTEVIDEO, URUGUAY (AP) Uruguay's six-day government
crisis appeared to be practically over Monday with Juan M. Bordaberry still
President, the armed forces winning much greater power and not a shot
fired.
Bordaberry made a surprise visit to an air force base at mid-day and then
returned by helicopter to the presidential residence and reported to cabinet
members who had assisted him through the long ordeal.
After the briefing. Interior Minister Walter Ravenna told newsmen 'the
President has overcome the situation'. Commerce Minister Luis Balparda

DISPOSITION OF CASES OF 1972 HIJACKERS
WASHINGTON (AP)-Three of the 14 airplane hijackers brought to trial
in 1972 have been sentenced to prison for life, and eight others have got
ten sentences between 20 and 45 years, a justice Department summary
said.
The report, made public Monday. said the three who have not been
sentenced are under pre-sentence study.
Of the eight who got sentences from 20 to 45 years, one was sentenced
to 45 years, another for 40 years, another for 30 and five for 20 years, the
summary said.
So far in 1973, one hijacker has been sentenced to 20 years in prison.
Another has been convicted and is awaiting sentence. A third proceeding
resulted in a hung jury and the defendant is to be retried.

Nixon devalues OF NEW U.S.


US dollar by


ten per cent

WASHINGTON (AP) President Nixon has devalued the
dollar by ten per cent in a dramatic move to calm troubled world
money markets and restore confidence in the battered U.S.
currency.


LONDON (AP) Most foreign
exchange markets remained closed
today and only a few eovemments
took immediate action to
compensate for the devaluation of
the U.S. dollar and the floating of
the Japanese yen.
The Italian government freed
the lira to float, and Israel, South
Korea and Indonesia devalued their
currencies to match the dollar's
drop.
But the West German
government, while welcoming
Washington's action, said it would
not revalue the mark upward in
terms of other European currencies.
(e See later story this page)
Italian finance minister Giovanni
Malagodi announced that the
two-tier market established for the
lira three weeks ago would be
maintained. But he said the
-commercial lira used for foreign
trade was being set free to find Its
value according to the demands of
the market, like the financial lira
used for other money exchanges.
France already has a two-tier
system, and the British pound has
been floating since last June. The
Swiss franc also floats, with its
value determined by the market
demand.
Government leaders around the
world .were consulting intensively
to assess the likely impact of the
U.S. devaluation. Finance ministers
of the European Common Market
scheduled a meeting in Brussels
today, then postponed it until
Wednesday, to seek a joint stand.
The London foreign exchange
market reopened today, but
resumption of trading on the
Tokyo, Paris and Frankfurt
exchanges was delayed until
Wednesday. The Tokyo exchange
closed Saturday and the others on
Monday because of the run on the
dollar.
The British pound opened in
London at $2.48, a jump of 10
cents or just over 4 per cent in its
value since Friday's closing. But
within an hour it dropped back to
S2.45 and was expected to stabilize
around $2.40.
The West German mark, the
chief target of the speculators and
hedging business houses that rushed
to unload dollars last week, will
probably be fixed at about 2.90 to
the dollar, finance minister Helmut
Schmidt told a news conference.
Another major figure in the
currency crisis, finance minister
Valery discard d D'Estaing of France,
expressed approval of the
devaluation, but the Paris financial
and business community was
fearful.
The Swedish government met in
emergency sessism to discuss the
implications of the dollar
devaluation for that country's
crown.
The American action was
expected to hit both the shipping
and wood pulp industries hard.


Nixon's decision, announced
at a late news conference last
night by Treasury Secretary
George Shultz, marked the
second dollar devaluation in 14
months. It swept aside a world
currency agreement reached in
December, 1971.
Although the devaluation
was widely expected as a result
of tumultuous monetary
disruptions on money-ex-
change markets in the past few
weeks, few thought it would be
so large.
Shultz told newsmen that
the move, combined with two
other key trade and monetary
actions, would benefit the U.S.
consumer, workingman and
businessman.
The immediate impact of a
devaluation is to raise the price
of imports from foreign
countries. But, because the
dollar is now cheaper in
relation to other currencies,
prices of U.S. exports will he
less.
The devaluation will be
achieved formally by raising
the official price of gold from
its present $38 an ounce to
$42.22. Although this will
take an Act of Congress, the
dollar depreciation will take
place immediately in foreign
money markets.
There are two ways of
looking at the percentage of
the devaluation. The rise in the
gold price amounts to a little
more than eleven per cent. But
the percentage depreciation of
the dollar from the old par
value on exchange markets -
in relation to "paper gold" -
or Special Drawing Rights -
comes out to ten per cent.
YEN TO FLOAT
Shultz also announced that
Japan's currency, the yen, will
float, meaning that it will find
its own value in the market
police. He said the expectation
is that the yen will rise in value
even more than ten per cent.
IN TOKYO, the Japanese
government announced its
currency market will be
reopened Wednesday. The
finance ministry said the Bank
of Japan might intervene if the
yen floats to an overvalued
level.
BRITAIN announced that
its exchange market would


Kristian von Sydow, chairman of
the shipowners association, put the
loss in his sector at more than 250
million dollars.
The cost of wood pulp
manufacturers was put at about
half that amount.
Finance minister Nicolaas
Diederichs announced that the
parity of South Africa's rand would
be maintained unchanged.
That apparently meant the
count's currency would rise in value
from approximately 1.28 dollars.
to 1.40 dollars. Diederichs said,
though, that the exact rate will be
announced Wednesday.
The decision was apparently
based on a strong balance of
payments position plus the fact
South Africa produces more than
75 per cent of the non-Communist
world's gold.
Gold producers expect to benefit
from the change in the dollar's gold
value. With the devaluation, the
price of gold backing the dollar was
raised from 38 to 42.22 dollars an
ounce.
Dealers in both London and
Zurich said trading was almost
non-existent because of the
confusion. Dealers were making
largely indicative quotations,
Trading in currency other than
the dollar was virtually suspended
because markets were closed
elsewhere.
The Japanese yen was quoted in
interbank rates at 265 to the dollar
compared to Friday's 301.10.
Banks emphasized, however, this
was only an indicative quote with
no trading being done.

Sermais revalue

Mark up 11.1percent
BONN, GERMANY (AP) West
Germany set an official new parity
of 2.9003 German marks against
the devalued dollar, ordered the
Frankfurt exchange reopened
Wednesday and expressed
confidence the world monetary
crisis had been solved.
In working toward a solution,
Chancellor Willy Brandt told his
Cabinet, Bonn had followed Its goal
of "not sliding into a cheap
anti-Americanism," an official
communique reported.
Brandt disclosed that President
Nixon had sent him a message
Sunday expressing appreciation for
'the constructive attitude' of the
German government.
At the Cabinet meeting, the
communique said, Brandt also
praised his finance minister, Helmut
Schmidt, for carrying out the
difficult monetary talks with
'taciturnity' and 'a certain
toughness.'
The new parity, or central rate
for the dollar in Germany,
represented an 11.1 per cent higher
rate for the mark compared with
the 1971 parity of 3.2225 marks to
the dollar.

reopen today.
Although WEST GERMANY
was the focal point of the
dollar crisis that forced closing
of foreign exchanges in several
countries, there was no
immediate change in the value
of the mark, and probably
won't be. The FRENCH franc
also is expected to keep its
present par value.
Shultz said that other
countries now floating their
currencies, notably CANADA
and BRITAIN, probably will
continue the practice. The
devaluation has meaning only
for nations with fixed values
for their currencies.
CANADA TO DROP?
Canadian finance minister
John Turner confirmed the
Canadian dollar will continue
to float. Trade minister
Alastair Gillespie predicted
Canada's currency will follow
the drop of the U.S. dollar in
relation to other monies.
Shultz said other nations
may make changes in the
values of their currencies after
announcement of the
American devaluation. Such
currency changes would have
to be announced by the
countries involved.
Monday's devaluation was
the second major change in
world currencies since
December 1971, when major
non-Communist nations agreed
to a new currency alignment
following a conference in
Washington.
TRADE BARRIERS
Shultz announced that the
United States will ask Congress
for trade legislation that would
provide for lowering trade
barriers; raising tariffs to make
sure that U.S. exports have fair
access to foreign markets;
provide safeguards, such as
import quotas, to guard against
rapid changes in foreign trade,
and to protect the United
States from large and persistent
deficits in its balance of
payments.
Shultz said President Nixon
made the final decision to
devalue Monday morning.
"The approach has been to
see how we might use the crisis
as an opportunity ... to do
something to move us toward
equilibrium," Shultz said.


JERUSALEM (AP) The Israeli
pound joined the U.S. dollar today
in a 10 per cent devaluation in
relation to other currencies, the
government announced.
The official exchange rate
remains 4.20 Israeli pounds to the
dollar.

ITALIAN LIRA FLOATS
ROME (AP) Italy announced
Tuesday that the lira would float
freely when Italian foreign
exchange markets open Wednesday.
Treasury minister Giovanni
Malagodi said he expected that
following the dollar devaluation the
lira would "be worth more with
respect to the dollar, but suffer a
devaluation with respect to other
European currencies.'
He said both the commercial and
the financial lra in Italy's
three-week-old tier market would
be allowed to fluctuate. The market
was closed Monday and Tuesday.

SAN CLEMENTE, CALIF. (AP) President Nixon talked by
telephone Monday with an air force colonel held captive by the
North Vietnamese for nearly eight years and told him. "your


WASHINGTON
(AP)-President Nixon said
Tuesday he would seek trade
legislation to lower as well as
increase the barriers "to get a
fairer shake for America
abroad."
In comments about 12 hours
after the U.S. devalued the
dollar by 10 per cent, Nixon
said the tough trade legislation
is needed to "get other nations
away from their discriminatory
policies."
"Devaluation of the dollar...
is at best only a temporary
solution" to pressure on the
dollar, Nixon said.
He added that "trade
legislation must follow."
Nixon's remarks came as
photographers and newsmen
were ushered into the oval
office to record the start of a
meeting between Nixon and
Treasury Secretary George
Shultz.
The President, in his
conversation with Shultz, said
"for a great majority of the
American people," the 10 per
cent devaluation "does not
affect the value of their
dollars."
Then, talking to Shultz but
with phrases obviously
intended for newsmen to hear,
the President turned to trade
legislation.
He gave no specifics on his
legislative proposals but said
"only by being able to go up"
in some trade categories "will
we be able to get others to
come down."
PROTECTION
He and Shultz discussed the
impact of American markets
being flooded by
foreign-produced goods and
the President said in some cases
the imports can "drive a U.S.
business right out of
existence."
"To get a policy of freer
trade we must always have in
the background protection,"
Nixon said.
He said he had discussed his
legislative plans with Senate
finance committee chairman
Russell Long, (D-La.) and with
House ways and means
committee chairman Wilbur
Mills, (D-Ark.) and that he
found "generally a positive
attitude toward the trade
legislation."
Shultz had said in
announcing the devaluation
Monday night that Nixon
would send Congress
"comprehensive trade
legislation" with unspecified
safeguards against disruption of
domestic industries as a result
of imports.
Nixon, who was sitting
behind his big oval office desk
while talking to Shultz, set no
timetable for submission of the
legislation. But the package
couldn't go to Capitol Hill
before next week, since
Congress is now in recess.

CANADA $ TO DROP?
OTTAWA, Feb. 13 (AP) -
Devaluation of the U S. dollar
should keep Canadian-American
trade relations intact and give
Canadian exporters an entry to
other world markets, trade minister
Alastair Gillespie said Monday
night.
Finance minister John Turner
reserved comment until today.
Gillespie predicted that the
Canadian dollar, which has been
floating on money markets since
May 31, 1970, would follow the
U.S. dollar down in relation to
other world currencies.
Gillespie added that the U.S.
devaluation should help promote a
new international agreement
realigning the world's money
system.
Turner reaffirmed the
government's intention to let the
Canadian dollar continue to float.
JAP YEN TO FLOAT
TOKYO, Feb. 13 (AP) The
Japanese government announced
today that it will reopen its foreign
currency market Wednesday and
allow the yen to float and find its
level according to the demands of
the market.
The finance ministry said,
however, that the Bank of Japan
may intervene later to control the'
float if the yen reaches a level it
considers overvalued.
The yen has been pegged at 308
to the dollar since December 1971
when Japan was forced to revalue
its currency upward by 16.88 per
cent.

have our support for as long as
you live."
Ziegler further quoted the
colonel as saying the prisoners
want "to shake your hand and
tell you personally how proud
we are to have you as our
President."
Risner was captured on
Sept. 16, 1965, when his
Thailand-based F105D was
shot down.
Ziegler said Risner, on- of
the senior officers among the
POWs, who were released
Sunday, initiated the phone
call and "there was no prior
discussion with us."
The call was received just as
the President was preparing to
witness the swearing in of
Casper Weinberger as Secretary
of Health, Education and
Welfare. After the ceremony,
the call was placed through to
the President's office.
Ziegler said the President
reported that Risner's voice
was "very firm and very strong
and reflective of the great
courage of all of them."
The chief executive had
watched the televised return of
the prisoners to the Philippines
base Sunday night and, during
a meeting Monday with
Teamsters Union President
Frank Fitzsimmons said,
"America is solidly behind the
prisoners and "all they went
through was not in vain."
Nixon also said the Vietnam
peace agreement was not an
"abject bugout."
PEACE & HONOUR
"We got peace with


sacrifice has not been in vain."
"I want you to know how
enormously proud we are of
you and all the men," Nixon
told Col. Robinson Risner, of
Tulsa, Okla., who initiated the
phone call from Clark Air Base
in the Philippines.
In their four-minute,
conversation, Nixon told the
officer, a prisoner of war for
7 years, that the call was
"one of the most moving
moments" of his presidency.
Press secretary Ronald L.
Ziegler, who relayed details of
the conversation, said the
48-year-old pilot, a World War
II veteran told Nixon, "all of
the men would like to meet
you personally and express
gratitude for what you have
done.
"My time is yours on that
point," Nixon responded.
Ziegler said the President
added that a meeting could be
arranged after the prisoners are
reunited with their families and
loved ones.
Because "you and the men
have been through so much,"
the President said, "nothing
would mean more to me than
to meet with you personally
and express gratitude on behalf
of myself and the American
people for your sacrifices."
Ziegler said no specific
time was set for a presidential
meeting with the returning
POWs.
PROUD OF YOU
The press secretary said the
colonel thanked Nixon for "his
personal efforts to get us out
of North Vietnam" and added,
"speaking in behalf of virtually
all of the prisoners, you would


MANAGUA, NICARAGUA,
Feb. 13 (AP) The Nicaraguan
government says it must invest at
least 170 million dollars
immediately in the first stage of
recuperation from a Dec. 23
earthquake that devastated this
capital city.
In a report to the United Nations
prepared by the economic ministry
the government said Nicaragua
hoped for preferential credits from
the International Development
Association (IDA) and the
International Finance Corporation
(IFC) to aid in recuperation from
the quake.
The report said Nicaragua's
needs include, in millions of
dollars:
- for housing 45
- for infrastructure 30
- for small industry 15
- for public services 10
- for hospitals 12
- for schools 8
for markets 10
for other areas 40
In a summary of losses from the
disaster, the report also said:
between 8,000 and 10,000
persona died in the quake.
another 20,000 were injured.
between 220,000 and
250,000 people were left
homeless.
fourteen large factories were
lost or seriously damaged.
95 per cent of small factories
and workshops destroyed.
thirteen square kilometers of
the city were totally demolished
and another 14 square kilometers
damaged.
50,000 homes were destroyed
and 24,000 damaged.
four hospitals with 1,650 beds,
40 per cent of the country's total,
were lost or seriously damaged.
the government estimated that
tax losses this year would be 38.6
million dollars.
the central bank said
Nicaragua's foreign debt was 250
million dollars as at Dec. 31, 1972.
MORE BODIES FOUND
MANAGUA, FEB. 13 (AP)
Cleaning up operations in this
capital city destroyed by an
earthquake last Dec. 23 have turned
up 30 to 40 more bodies during the
last two weeks, the office of Mayor
Salvador Lacayo announced today.
The bodies were found by the
-civilian construction brigade and
city workers, and, being
unidentifiable, were burned in the
streets when found.
Jorge Cardenas, head of
Nicaragua's Red Cross announced
today that Spain was sending one
million dollars (56 million pesetas)
worth of medical supplies, food and
clothing by ship to Nicaragua to aid
the thousands of homeless affected
by the quake.


honour," he declared.
Later. in his telephone
conversation with Risner,
Nixon voiced his appreciation
for the families of POWs "who
have supported an honourable
end to the war."
"They stood firm ... without
the support of the families this
might not be possible," Nixon
said.
Risner is a veteran flier, his
experience dating to World War
II and Korea.
Risner was a natural for the
Vietnam war because he was
serving as commander of the
67th tactical fighter squadron
at Kadena Air Force Base,
Okinawa, when President
Lyndon B. Johnson began
the air war against North
Vietnam early in 1965.
Risner took his squadron of
F105 bombers to Korat,
Thailand, and began launching
daily missions against Hanoi
supply lines and
communications networks.
Meanwhile, the first
American war prisoners to gain
freedom since the Vietnam
peace agreement experimented
Monday night with some
pleasures of life outside
Communist prison camps.
A total of 143 military and
civilian prisoners flew away
from captivity, 116 from
North Vietnam and 27 from
jungle prisons in South
Vietnam. All but one, who
remained in a Saigon hospital,
were ferried to this U.S. base
for the first stop on their way
home.
Back under the U.S. flag, the
POWs telephoned their families
in the United States, tinkered
with the TV sets in their rooms
at the Clark Air Base hospital
and dined on steak and eggs.
Only four of the 143 were
sick enough to be brought back
on litters. Many others looked,
pale and wan, particularly
those released at Loc Ninh in
South Vietnam. They flew into
Clark after their release was
delayed 11 hours by a dispute
between the South Vietnamese
government and the Viet Cong.

The story of a man


By ETIENNE DUPUCH
THE STORY in the Bible about the ten lepers who were cured
by Christ is a common experience in everyday life.
Only one came back to thank Him ... and He asked: "Where
are the nine?"
The Bible is full of stories that can be helpful to us in
maintaining a sober outlook on life because, if this kind of thing
happened to Christ and He still went on helping needy people,
why should we ordinary mortals expect any more in our own
experiences of life?

Recently I told you two stories about people whom I helped
when they found themselves in an awkward situation. One was
Howard Hughes, the other a mysterious female passenger on the
Reina del Pacifico. They volunteered promises but I never saw
them again.
This is the kind of thing that sometimes makes a newspaper
man cynical but I have found that .... on balance .... it pays to he
fair and decent to people.
Now I will tell you two stories about people who did not make
promises .... but they came back.
4*** *iti*****
Dr. Axel Wenner-Gren was a Swedish multi-millionaire. He
made a great fortune out of a product he invented and marketed
successfully in the U.S.
He came to Nassau in his yacht Southern Cross, then the
largest private yacht afloat, some time between the two great
wars. He was tall, blonde and charming. His wife was an
American. She was engaged in some kind of theatricals in the
U.S. when he met and married her. She had a sister who travelled
with them wherever they went.
The doctor bought an extensive property at Hog Island (since
renamed Paradise Island) on which he built a house and
landscaped it beautifully. It was the perfect retreat for a
businessman. There he had a Swedish staff, some of whom are
still living in Nassau.
He appropriately named his island retreat Shangri-La after the
mythological sacred kingdom high up in the Himalayas ....
somewhere on the borders of China .... where people live such
peaceful lives that they never seem to die.

I don't know how or where I first met Dr. Wenner-Gren but we
became warm friends. My wife and I were often dinner guests at
his house.
One of the interesting spots at Shangri-La was known as
Hurricane Hole. This is the channel he had cut from the southern
side of Hog Island to the other side of the island. This is
where he kept his small motor boats and it provided a perfect
retreat for vessels in a hurricane.
It is interesting to recall that the place where the canal is
located was known as Burnside Cove before the doctor bought
the property. It was owned by Fred Bumside, clerk of the Market
and an uncle of John and Basil Burnside and Lady Bancroft.
There was a pond at this place, located where the Canal was
cut. This was a popular rendezvous for water fowl. I often went
to this place early in the morning with the late Jack Smith to
shoot duck. We sailed across to the island in the Warrior, a small
boat owned by Jack.
It is interesting to recall this pond because I imagine many of
our older citizens used to shoot duck there.
********* *
During the second world war Dr. Wenner-Gren was suspected
by the U.S. of being a spy for the Germans. He was blacklisted
after the U.S. entered the war and was obliged to live in exile in
Mexico where he acquired an estate and made substantial
investments. He was also interested in developing the Monorail,
an invention that he believed would speed up railway
transportation. The Monorail was a single railway line ... by
contrast with the double rails. This proposal was given a great
deal of publicity but it never came to anything. He also obtained
concessions over vast areas of land in an undeveloped part of
Canada where it was believed that rich deposits of minerals were
to be found.

He was suspected of being a spy because his yacht Southern
Cross was near a large American passenger liner when it was sunk
by a German submarine. And his yacht was not touched. The
Americans believed that the yacht acted as a decoy for the enemy
submarine.
It was also said that Mrs. Wenner-Gren had some connection
with Goebbels, Hitler's notorious Propaganda Minister who set a
new pattern for lying and treachery in what is known as
diplomacy. In later years Stalin proved to be a disciple of the
Goebbels methods. I have forgotten exactly her connection with
Goebbels. I think she was his sister-in-law.
It was even suggested that the Canal at Shangri-La was a hiding
place for German submarines.

During the war I organized and headed the War Materials
Committee which did a major job for Britain in the Bahamas. A
part of this operation was the canning of food -- such as tomatoes
as a gift for Britain. The Hon. W.C.B. Johnson, O.B.E., Speaker
of the House of Assembly, owned a canning factory which was a
smaller edition of a pineapple canning factory that he managed
during the heyday of the pineapple industry in the colony. The
original factory was established by his uncle J. S. Johnson, who
had made a success in some form of business in New York and
later came home to establish the J. S. Johnson Co. factory.
For many years the J. S. Johnson Co. organization was the
largest enterprise in the colony. In addition to canning
pineapples, they owned al! of Cable Beach, which was then of no
valte, and miles of land on the southern side of the road where


they had extensive sisal fanrms.
When pineapples and sisal failed the company tried to sell all
this property. All of Cable Beach could have been bought for less
thah two thousand pounds sterling. There were no buyers.
And so Mr. Johnson got an idea from land developers in
Florida. This was the period just before the great land bust in
Florida. He parcelled off Cable Beach in large lots which were
sold for two hundred pounds each. This was the first land
development in the colony. Because of the beaches this area
became quickly popular as a resort for wealthy visitors to the
island and Mr. Johnson lived to see the lots increase in value to
fifty thousand pounds .... and more.
The J. S. Johnson Co's factory was -located on an extensive
property on the waterfront between Victoria Avenue and Union
Str4et (since renamed Elizabeth Avenue). There sloops from
Eleithera, such as the Jolui B. which gave its name to a popular
Balhmian song, could easily anchor, and land their cargoes of
pineapples. Some pineapples were grown by the Johnson Co. at
Prospect, Labouchere and the Caves in the western part of New
Proy'idence but most of the pineapples grown in the colony were
produced at Eleuthera.
After the J.S. Johnson Co. operation folded up Mr. Johnson
moved to his own property in Union Street (Elizabeth Avenue)
and: installed a smaller plant where he canned tomatoes and made
ton)ato paste.
Mr. Johnson not only placed his factory at the disposal of the
Wap Materials Committee but he operated it for us. He was a very
active member of my committee. As a result of his great help the
Corhmittee was able to make the second largest gift of food to
Britain of the then vast British Colonial Empire. The largest


donors of food to Britain were the twin Rhodcsias with their
large sides of beef.

Now .... let us get back to the story about Dr. Wenner-Gren.
The D-ctor was quietly a great help to me in my War Materials
work.
One day I got an idea. I felt the committee could greatly
expand its work if it had a factory somewhere near Bimini aqd
Cat Cay where hundreds of thousands of pounds of tuni meat
was wasted every fishing season by anglers who gathered at these
islands during the tuna season for 'international tournaments.
And so I went to see my friend Dr. Wenner-Gren. I told him
that an effort should be made to save this tuna meat as a war
measure. I asked him to give the committee a factory. Hie liked
the idea and agreed. It was all set.
A few days later he sent his launch to Nassau to take me across
to Shangri-La. That day we had a long heart-to-heart talk.
He explained that his country Sweden was neutral in the war.
His business interests were so international that he was involved
in many parts of the world, principally the U.S.. Britain and
Europe.
"I am too deeply involved with the Allies already," he told me.
"I wouldn't dare to set foot in Germany today. I would be.
arrested as a collaborator with the Allies. I am concerned about
the future. If Germany wins the war I'll be in a ticklish spot."
For this reason, he said, he could not afford to openly support
the War Materials Committee but he liked the idea and had
decided to establish a tuna canning factory at Grand Bahama as a
private enterprise.
Soon after this he established a large factory at the island. I
think it was at West End. It started out well and canned a large
quantity of tuna meat which helped boost the food supply for
the Allies.
Soon after this factory was established America entered the
war. Almost immediately Dr. Wenner-Gren was blacklisted by the
U.S. as a suspected German spy. As a result he spent the rest of
the war as an exile in Mexico. Because of bad management in his
absence and the lack of a market the factory lost a pile of money
and was finally closed down.

I suppose spies are expected to be smooth and charming. But I
never believed Dr. Wenner-Gren was an enemy spy. iHe was too
gentle to be a man of guile. And so we continued to be friends.
Because I had been decent to him during his ordeal, when he
retumed to Nassau after the war we became very close friends.
One day he came to my office with a smile on his face that
spread from ear to ear.
"You have been decent to me, my friend," he said, "now I
want to do something to show my appreciation."
The doctor had established several Trusts for various types of
research.
"I'm going to establish my most important Trust. The
newspapers in the U.S., Britain and Europe got wind of it and
they have been chasing me for the story. I decided to make a
special trip to Nassau and let you handle it from here. You can
make some money from it and it will boost your image in the
newspaper world," he said.
He was establishing this Trust to celebrate his 70th birthday.

On another occasion the doctor came to see me at my office.
He seemed to be in perfect health. He used to test his strength
by periodically climbing to the top of a large casuarina tree near
the beach on the northern side of his house. That day he told me
how he was still able to climb this tree. He seemed healthy and
happy. He must have been about 75 years of age then.
The purpose of his visit was to tell me that he was building a
large Peace House in Stockholm. This was to be developed as a
centre to promote peace in the world. It was to be opened that
coming summer and he wanted my wife and me to attend the
opening ceremonies as his guest .... all expenses paid.
I accepted the invitation .... and then forgot about it.
Just about the time the Peace House was supposed to open
news came over the wires .... Dr. Wenner-Gren was dead. Cancer.
The cancer must have worked fast because I am sure he had no
idea that he was a seriously ill man the day he came to my office
to invite me to Sweden as his guest at the opening of Peace
House.


Shangri-La was later bought by the A. & P. heir and playboy
Huntington Hartford.
He planned to convert it into a unique tourist centre where
motor vehicles would be banned. All transportation would be
horse-drawn.
It was a great idea but, like all of this man's great undertakings,
it was impractical and soon failed. The reason was that he had too
few rooms at this place for such a large investment to succeed.
It had a brilliant opening night with hundreds of guests from
Nassau and abroad but it quickly folded up.
This property was finally bought by the present hotel
developers at the island. The Wenner-Gren house continued to be
a part of the development but it was destroyed by fire a few years
ago.

Dr. Wenner-Gren's vast estate was left in Trust. It has
disappeared and the Trustee has been the subject of a court trial
in Sweden.
To pay some of the debts now owed by the estate an auction
was held some months ago at a house the doctor owned in
Montagu Bay on New Providence.
His sister-in-law has died, his wife has lost a leg and lives a
precarious existence in their mansion in Mexico which may also
soon go under the auctioneer's hammer.

Years later my wife and I attended a press conference in
Sweden where we saw the estate of Dr. Wenner-Gren and also his
Peace House.
But, alas. there has been no peace. 1, nevertheless, remember
Dr. Wenner-Gren as a man of goodwill who had to suffer because
lie had friends on both sides in a global war.

FOOTNOTE TO HISTORY: My secretary. who typed this article
from my manuscript, attached the following notes on the
Monorail which are interesting.
Is it right, he asked, to say that the Monorail "never came to
anything"?
One was a popular feature of the World's Fair in Seattle some
years ago so popular that it was left operating and is now a
leading tourist attraction of that city.
There is one in operation in Japan.
There is one in operation at Walt Disney World in Florida.
DISNEYLAND is the one in California. This one is unique in that
it cuts right through the tourist hotel with a stop in what would
be the lobby of the hotel.
One is now being considered for Miami to solve the traffic and
air-pollution problem in downtown Miami. And others? The idea
certainly is not dead.
But whether these are descendants of the original Wenner-Gren
idea. I don't know.
Tomorrow I will tell you an interesting story about Sir Victor
Sassoon.

THOUGHTS FOR TODAY
Quiet minds can not be perplexed or frightened but. go on in
fortune or misfortune at their own private pace, like a clock
during a thunderstorm.

Heart Foundation started 'by accident' 12



years ago,today fills need for Bahamians

THE SIR VICTOR SASSOON (Bahamas) Heart Foundation came into being in October 1961 "by accident", Mary Kelly, public
relations director for the Foundation told the Rotary Club of East Nassau on Friday.


Miss Kellv, who has been
associated withthhe Foundation
since it started, said that w hen
Sir Victor died in August 19L1,
Lady Sassoon, his w idosw,
requested that donations be
made to the local heart fund in1
his memory in lhu ot flowers.
Tw o months later she was
called h%\ Chicf Medical
Officer, Dr. I I. Murcott. it
Princess Margarit IIHospital w\ hn
asked Ladh Saisson ws hat
should bhe done with the
money donated.
When lad y Sissoon
discovered that there swas no
local heart fund or organisation
to deal with heart problems
"a surprise," ititerjiected Miss,
Kelly, "'\ hein one con siders
that heart disease is the
number one killer in the
world" it spurred her to
establish he 1I mnldation one
month later in October 1l61.
The nmilney that had been
donated swas used to buy ai
piece ot equipmeiit for tile
Princess Margaret bHospital.
"That wais the beginning of the
Foundation," said Miss Kelly,
who is also secretary ot the
Trustees Commnittee of the
Foundation, "and today, less
than 12 years later, it hlas been
called upon for life saving
financial help by hundreds of
Bahamian children and adults
who have been in need of life
saving heart surgery and other
related medical treatment.
TRUSTLIS
"I lhe foundation is niln by a
Trustees (oomniittee that meets
once a year formally at the
annual general meeting but
informally all year long in
carrying out the work of the
Foundation and making the
decisions for medical and
financial help as needed," said
Miss Kelly
"For the year 1973 this
Committee has as its members:
Lady Sassoon, Chairman, Mr.
R. Ernest Barnes, Treasurer,
myself as Secretary, Dr.
Francisco Hernandez, Berenson
Professor of Pediatric
Cardiology and Clinical
Director of the National
Children's Cardiac Hospital in
Miami, Dr. James R. Jude,
Professor of Thoracic and
Cardiovascular Surgery at the
University of Miami School of
Medicine, Dr. Maude
Stevenson, Pediatrician at the
Princess Margaret Hospital, Dr.
Andrew Esfakis, Dr. K.V.A.
Rodgers, Dr. Cecil W M.
Bethel, Mr. Peter Graham and
Mrs. Beverly Whitfield as
Welfare Officer.
"The cases that are
underwritten for surgery, with
the exception of emergency
cases, are brought to the
attention of the Foundation
through the Ileart Clinics that
are sponsored by them. The
annual children's clinics are
organized by Dlr. Stevenson
and Dr. Hernandez and Dr.
Jude come over from Miami to
Conduct the clinic and decide
on those cases that will need
surgery. "As many as 40 to 50
children will have been seen by
these doctors each year with as
many as 12 to 15 needing heart
surgery," said Miss Kelly.
"Cases that are decided
u pon for surgery are
investigated by the Welfare
Officer to determine the


financial help needed from the
Foundation, which in most
cases it turns out that the
Foundation will be needed to
underwrite the cost. The cost
of heart surgery is expensive -
running as high as 5 to 6
thousand dollars these being
cases that require open-heart
surgery which must be sent to
Miami to be done.
FIRST AT PMIH
"Just two weeks ago today,
"she said," the Foundation
sponsored its first heart surgery
here in Nassau at the Princess
Margaret Hospital on little
Julie Jones of Marsh Harbour,
Abaco. Her operation was able
to be done here because it was
not open-heart surgery which
requires the vital heart-lung
b\ pass machine which is not
available here and the medical
demand of a team of surgeons
who are skilled in the art of
open-heart surgery.
"Dr. Jude has been
advocating for some time now
that certain lesser heart defects
can be done here and the
success of the Julie Jones case
points up his conclusions in
this respect and also his
admiration for the medical and
surgical staff now at the
Princess Margaret Hospital.
"The emotional and physical
significance of performing


some operations here can best
be diagnosed as a 'Bahamian
Involvement'. This leads to the
parent and child being less
panicky about going to Miami
for the operation and it affords
a reduction in the cost of the
operation to the Foundation,
enabling it to meet the
financial demands upon it
which increase every year.
"In the eight years that I
have been associated with the
Foundation I have witnessed
and written about many of
these heart operations .... it is a
rewarding experience to see a


child have heart surgery and
know that medical science and
surgical skill can give him a
new life put him on the path
to a normal, healthy, existence
like other children. More
importantly, perhaps, is
knowing that it was made
possible through those who
support The Sir Victor Sassoon
(Bahamas) Heart Foundation.
TENTH APPEAL
"Like any other charity
organization the Foundation
must appeal to the public for
its funds to underwrite these

FRANCIS RUDOLPH DEVEAUX

Young Bahamian going

places as model in demand
By SIDNEY DORSETT
VISITING NASSAU after appearing between the covers of
several fashion magazines on the continent and in America is
Francis Rudolph Deveaux, Bahamian-born fashion model and
actor.


Son of Mrs. Lorraine Sands
of Nassau, Francis left
Nicholl's Town, Andros, for
the U.S. first in 1959 where he
"studied acting for about two
and a half years with Mr. Lloyd
Richards" who he describes as
being "a fine American
teacher."
A former psychology
student at Brooklyn College,
New York, Francis arrived in
Nassau after leaving Curacao
where he has been working
with other fashion models for
the up-coming Ebony
magazine's men's fashion fair.
In his 30's but appearing a
far cry from it, he says that he
believes the truth has been
hidden because he "eats a lot
of fresh vegetables and meat."
His stop-over was made with
his favourite grandmother in
mind, Mrs. Perlene Lewis. "I
was so close being in
Curacao, that I decided to hop
over."
For folks who don't already
know it, Francis is the eldest
brother of Olympic track
athlete Mike Sands and Ronnie
and Wenzel Sands.
He returned to New York on
Monday.
MANY REQUESTS
How does he like his career?
"I find it to be getting more
and more interesting. There
have been a lot of requests
from magazines asking for me",
he says adding that he has also
been promised to be used in a
future edition of Esquire
magazine.
Francis is a Bahamas
Academy graduate, and
formerly attended elementary
school at Southern Primary
School. Admitting that he
enjoys being home again he
says: "I love it and can't get
enough of it." He tries to
return home each year.
His latest appearance was a
role in the Italian production,
"A Red Hot Shark," which was
released in 1967 and filmed 6n
location in Rome and Las
Vegas in which he played the
part of an informer for the
Cosa Nostra.
Not ashamed to admit that
he has also been an "extra" at
certain times, he recalls that

the movie "Across 110th.
Street" which stars Tony
Quinn had him "up front at a
table on the poster" when he
didn't appear in the film.
Asked how he started
modelling his story begins with
the remark: "It was sheer
coincidence."
His first try at modelling
came in 1967 when he
accompanied a group of
fashion models to an ABC-T.V.
programme and a male member
failed to arrive. Seeing that the
model's clothes fit him, the
director assigned him the
pieces that would not have
been used* Since then, there
have been "a lot of requests for
me" he says.

DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been having the
sa disagreement for the last six years, and I hope you
can settleI It.
My husband believes that he should give me a gift on
three occasion: my birthday, Christmas, and Mother's
Day.
I think he should add one more, St. Valentine's Day,
slnce that Is the day above all others when one expresses
lob I wouldn't expect an expensive gift. A single flower
would do.
My husband feels that a few unexpected gifts brought
home during the year mean more than those he is expected
to give just because of the date on the calendar. I agree,
but be does this very infrequently.
Shouldn't he give me a gift on St. Valentine's Day just
because he knows it would make me happy, and I am hurt
when he doesn't? MRS. A.
DEAR MRS. A.: He should, but if he doesn't, you
should accept his decision with grace and maturity. A gift

necessary heart operations.
This year marks its tenth
public appeal, the first one
being in March, 1964, when a
film premiere with movie star
Joan Crawford was held at the
the Shirley Street Theatre and
a champagne supper followed
;t the Montagu hotel. The
following year, 1965 the public
appeal took on the form of the
Inaugural Heart Ball held at the
British Colonial Hotel. This
came about through the desire
to help raise funds for the
Foundation by world famous
orchestra leader Meyer Davis
who had been a friend of Sir
Victor Sassoon for many years
and wanted to help Lady
Sassoon as an expression of
appreciation for their
friendship. Next week will be
the ninth consecutive Heart
Ball and the ninth consecutive
year that Meyer Davis will have
come to Nassau with his
orchestra to assure the
financial success of this fund
raising event.
FUNDS
"Today the public appeal
for funds takes on additional
forms, as the Heart Ball alone
cannot raise the necessary
funds now needed by the
Foundation. Additional public
fundss now came from the
proceeds of the Heart Raffle,
held during February, Heart
Month; through private
donations; from the annual
Drumbeat for Heart, a night
when Peanuts Taylor
,generously gives his club to the


Foundation to put on a show
with local entertainers
donating their time and talents;
through classroom collections
by school children when one of
their own group has been
helped through heart surgery;
through the sale of tickets for a
Mother's Group Tea or a
Church-sponsored picnic. Now
the funds come from many
sources in the community,
which has become aware of the
work of The Sir Victor Sassoon
(Bahamas) Heart Foundation
and recognizes that only
continued public support can
assure it of never having to say
'NO' to a needy case. It hasn't
yet and it hopes it never will,"
said Miss Kelly.
"Certainly the admirable
work being done by The Sir
Victor Sassoon (Bahamas)
Heart Foundation deserves its
own special niche of
acceptance in the community.
But it is only one of many
dedicated organizations and
groups of people in our
community who try to make
life better for their fellow-man.
They are to be commended,
and supported.
"Yet there are individuals
who unselfishly pursue this
golden rule, unassuming,
unglorified and unpublicized,"
she said. "It Was for this reason
that the Trustees Instituted
The Golden Heart Award an
award given annually "to that
person who has given of
himself unselfishly to promote
human welfare and dignity
while making life better for his
fellowman". The Foundation
instituted the awarding of this
annual honour four years ago.
It is very much coveted today
as it gives public recognition to
a person who has laboured
unpublicized for his or her
good deeds; gives recognition
so that the person honoured
may receive a moment of
public adulation and
everlasting gratitude; gives
recognition to the need for
such unselfish promoters of
human welfare and dignity to
continue with their much
needed and dedicated work;
gives recognition and
encouragement to unknown
and unassuming practitioners
of the golden rule ... "I will
help him for he is my brother".
It is a recognition of
performance, not popularity.
The Foundation, through the
Golden Heart Award, hopes
that this annual award of
recognition to one person
spiritually gives satisfaction to
the many others who also
serve, and deserve.
HEART AWARDS
"There is no doubt that the
four winners to date have been
worthy nominees for the
award. The first Golden Heart
Award winner for 1968 was
Dr. Maria Bachem, Clinical
Director of St. Francis Xavier's
Free Health and Pre-Natal
Clinic. She was recognized for
her extensive, and
unpublicized, work among the
poor and elderly during her 14
years in the Bahamas.
"1969 saw Dr. Timothy

Retarded Children she was
better known as its "guardian
angel and making the world a
better place for unfortunate
little ones".
"Last year's winner, the
1971 award went to Mrs.
Denny Cooper, a member of
the Princess Margaret Hospital
Volunteer Auxiliary known as
'The Yellowbirds'. She was
honoured for giving nearly
3,000 hours of volunteer
service at the hospital since
joining the group in late 1968.
I'm sure many of you listening
to me right now will agree that
this would be a phenomenal
record for attendance, let alone
performance. In addition to
her Yellowbird duties she spent
additional spare time doing
volunteer work for the
Children's Emergency Hostel,
the St. Francis Xavier's Free
Health and Pre-Natal Clinic and
was described by her
supporters for the award as
"efficient, energetic, and
absolutely reliable, while being
always cheerful and
good-tempered and one of the
most sympathetic people we
have ever met."

I did not know Sir Victor
Sassoon. Yet this living
memorial has brought me in-

family and friends, it has
brought me in touch with the
very things he stood for
himself, his love and
admiration for the
Bahamamian people, his desire
to make the Bahamas his
home, his willingness to share
with those less fortunate, his
living example of being a great
humanitarian and benefactor.
These are the things that
emerge not only to me but to
many, many other people who
did not know him. For the
aims and dedication of The Sir

GENERAL TENDENCIES: You are inclined
along with everyone else to be pretty emotional
today and tonight and to feel that life is being difficult for
you, but if you realize that problems are opportunities giving
you the chance to show how well you can handle them; you
can turn a day of annoyance into constructive results.
ARIES (Mar. 21 to Apr. 19) Don't get so upset about some
situation that doesn't even concern you, and keep busy with
what does. Show more thoughtfulness for those who dwell
with you. Make your life more meaningful.
TAURUS (Apr. 20 to May 20) Do your work in a most
conscientious and careful manner and use same methods with
associates. Keep out of trouble of all kinds. Drive with utmost
care also. There is an element of danger in the works today,
p.m
GEMINI (May 21 to June 21) Don't make the mistake of
thinking you have to keep up with the Joneses, especially if
they are being foolish. Show wisdom and be yourself. Take the
treatments you need to improve your health
MOON CHILDREN (June 22 to July 21) Get busy at work
ahead of you and get rid of feeling of restlessness or
annoyance. Delve also into matters of the spirit. Make yourself
as charming as you can. A change of diet is wise, too.
LEO (July 22 to Aug. 21) You think present conditions are
holding you back, but they are only a challenge that can be
met to go on to greater things. Help those who are in trouble.
The evening should be a most interesting one for you.
VIRGO (Aug. 22 to Sept. 22) Don't permit that friend to
waste your time by listening to some complaints that are only
bad thinking on his or her part. Avoid the social which could
prove disappointing. Keep rooted to whatever is practical.
LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Get into some charitable or
philanthropic work that can be helpful to others and stamp
you as an A-1 citizen. Some responsibilities you have need
your full and quick attention now Keep active and keep
happy.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) If you use charm on others,
you can make the changes that will improve your mode of
living, but being too forceful will get you nowhere.
Entertainment is fine provided you do not spend too much.
Avoid one who is unfriendly to you
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You have to handle
those obligations you have in a most skillful fashion now,
otherwise you can get into real trouble. An associate is not
happy but can handle his end of things well just the same. Give
time to get back on even keel.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 20) A partner is not acting
quite right, but a bit of encouragement can work wonders, so
give it. Avoid one who opposes you, or you could get the short
end of the stick. Evening is best spent at home with family.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 to Feb 19) Get all those duties
behind you quickly even though some co-worker is acting
somewhat erratically. Don't stop until you have completed
every item You need rest in p.m so brush away invitations
and get it.
PISCES (Feb. 20 to Mar. 20) Use your wit and humor on
others and cheer them up thereby making yourself feel better
also. Get into amusements that are equally pleasurable. Use
that creative bent you possess and solve intricate puzzles,
problems, also.
IF YOUR CHILD IS BORN TODAY ... he or she will be
one of those fascinating young people who has to go on a
dramatic binge occasionally to let off steam, so do not let this
bother you, and the habit will soon be broken, or will find
expression on the stage and money can be made from it as a
sideline, or possibly as a life's work.

St. Augustine's take title



& remain undefeated;


Aquinas in impressive win

By GLADSTONE THURSTON
DEFENDING SENIOR BOYS CHAMPIONS St. Augustine's
College retained their Eastern Division championship undefeated
yesterday when they wrapped up their E.D. competition with a
52-38 victory over St. Anne's College.


"We're not doing anything
we're not use to," commented
coach Vince Ferguson after the
victory.
Playing the first quarter
without starters Noel Munroe,
Greg Cooper, Livingstone
Barbes and Lionel Jervis,
S.A.C. held off an early attack
by St. Anne's to tie and take
the lead. St. Anne's, however,
paced by Karvol Mackey and
Kenneth Fawkes, maintained a
14-11 first quarter lead.
Going to the bench, coach
Ferguson then brought on
Munroe, Cooper, Jervis, Barbes
and centre Julian Russell which
drove them one behind at
20-19.
Holding St. Anne's to 20,
while Munroe controlled the
rebounds, Cooper chipped in
six points, Jervis four and
Munroe another six as S.A.C.
opened a 30-20 second quarter
lead.
Continuing their attack in
the third quarter, S.A.C'.
dumped in three consecutive
goals before a goal tending
violation on Munroe gave St.
Anne's their first two from
early in the second quarter.
Mackey then followed on a
layup moving St. Anne's to 24.
S.A.C. having accomplished
a substantial lead then rested
their key players while the
substitutes went on to increase
the lead 40-26 by the end of
the third quarter.
Stedman Forbes opened the
fourth quarter with a jumper
for St. Anne's who, moving to
a pressing defence, forced
many turnovers but were
unable to score effectively as
the S.A.Cers opened a 20 point
lead (48-28) early in that
quarter.
Coach Ferguson who
believes in giving all his players
a sweat brought on more from
the bench. St. Anne's took
momentary control of the
closing minutes of the final
quarter but were unable t top
St. Augustine's who went on to
win for the second consecutive
year since the institution of the
divisions.
With scores evenly
distributed, Terrence Smith
topped St. Augustine's with 11
points and Cooper added eight.
Mackey topped St. Anne's with
13 and Fawkes scored eight.

AQUINAS TOP 100
CLIFFORD RAHMING,
captain of Aquinas College
Aces scored a season high of 34
points yesterday when,
teaming up with four others in
double figures, they whipped
C.C. Sweeting High 114-55 at
the Garfunkel Auditorium as
the Inter-School 1973
Basketball series heads for a
climaxing close..
Paced by Rahming with 10
points Bennett Davis with six
and Bernard Davis with seven,
Aquinas opened a 23-6 first
quarter lead which they
extended to 53-21 by the end
of the second quarter as Ben
Davis sunk 10 more and
Rahming added another nine.
Continuing their slaughter,
Aquinas with Danny
Edgecombe scoring 10 and
Rahming eight in the third
quarter, opened a 83-44 gap by
the end of that quarter.
The fourth quarter, which
was complemented by a 35
foot rimless sunk by Alfred
"Slop" Walkes with two
minutes left, had Rahming and
Ben Davis scoring seven each
for Aquinas who play their
final Western Division game
Wednesday against St. John's
College. Ben Davis scored 27,
Edgecombe had 15 and Bern
Davis scored 13.

TORONTO BOXER
WINS
TORONTO II.B. 13 (AP)
Clyde Gray 25-year-old Toronto
bricklayer, Monday night hooked
and jabbed his way to the British
Commonwealth welterweight
boxing championship with a
unanimous 15-round decision over
tough Eddie Blay of Ghana.


There was never any doubt of
the outcome from the early rounds
and as the fight progressed it was a
question of whether the 30-year-old
Blay, who fights out of Italy, would
hang on for the duration.
Gray weighed 147 to Blay's 146.
There were no knockdowns, but
Blay was shaken up several times by
the hard-punching Canadian champ
S who now is looking towards his
next fight a shot at the world
