AFTER THE KIDNAPPER'S FIRST TELEPHONE CALL at 2 a.m. Friday banker Bob Spencer had hope. "We
realized that we were dealing with Bahamians and Bahamians are not noted for harming children," he said. "We felt
that this one characteristic would see our child through."


In a telephone call from an
undisclosed destination
overseas last night Royal Bank
manager Robert Spencer gave
his first press interview to The
Tribune. He talked in detail of
what took place at his home on
Thursday night around 8
o'clock when he "had reason
to believe there was someone
outside our house."
That night his daughter.
Andrea, 4V2, was snatched at
gunpoint and held for
$250,000 in what is believed to
be the Bahamas' first kidnap
case.
Shortly after Andrea was
returned on Saturday morning,
Bob Spencer packed and with
his family left the Bahamas.
Mr. Spencer said that on
Thursday night they were all in
the family room, an enclosed
patio around a swimming pool,


when he heard a noise. It was
Andrea's bedtime and her
mother was about to prepare
her for bed "when I had reason
to believe that there was
someone outside our house.
The house next door has been
vacant for several months and I
wondered if there was someone
over there.
"I went out of the side
door of the patio and walked
for a few feet from our house
to the driveway when I heard a
rustling in the hedges between
the two houses. It was too
heavy a noise to be that of a
dog or a cat. I turned to go
back to the patio when a
masked man burst out of the
hedge and came around the
side of my boat at me.
LOCK DOOR
"I went through the patio
and closed the screen door. I


shouted to Joan to lock the
family door to the inner house.
"The man burst through the
screen door behind me and fell
flat on his nose." Mr. Spencer
recalled. "I threw myself on
top of him and we struggled. 1
had him down, but in a split
second his accomplice stuck a
revolver to mny ear.
"They threatened to kill me
if Joan did not open the patio
door. She had already gone
into Andrea's bedroom with
her and so did not hear their
threats."
Mr. Spencer said that the
men then broke the sliding
glass door, which shuts off the
patio from the rest of the
house.
"They went straight to
Andrea's bedroom. They
seemed to know exactly where
they were going.


"They were wearing
stocking masks like ski
masks with holes cut out for
their eyes, nose and mouth."
He described them by
height, colour and clothing.
These descriptions have been
given to thle police.
Mrs. Spencer had rushed
Andrea to the child's bedroom,
where the coup le's
four-month-old son, Robert,
Jr., lay sleeping in his crib.
InllDS BABY
"Joan had gone into
Andrea's bedroom where she
had locked the door. She took
the baby out of his crib and
hid him under Andrea's bed so
that he would not be seen.
"The two men kicked the
door in and grabbed Andrea
from Joan's arms. The child
was screaming and was in
complete terror at the sight of
the hooded men.
"As quickly as we could we
told her totry 0 be tqui t
screaming too loudly. We were
afraid that if they became
agitated they might harm her.
"She was crying when she
left us," the father said.
The men demanded the keys
to Mr. Spencer's Caprice car.
They took Andrea through the
patio by the same way in
which they had entered the
house.
"As they went out they told
us that we would get a phone
call," Mr. Spencer said. "They
told us not to move, nor try to
follow them, nor call the
police.
"They drove Andrea to an
old, abandoned church, which
was a part of the original
Fr port where Wallace Cr ves

Lumber Company. The church
is of stone and all the windows
are out. Both nights were cold
and damp," Mr. Spencer said.
COLD) NIGHITS
The temperatures had fallen
to about SO degrees and
persons searching for the child
were wearing heavy sweaters.
The little girl had only the light
dress in which she had left
home,
The church, where she was
left by her abductors, is
located about two miles as the
crow flies from the Spencer
home, but about six miles by
road taking the airport route.
In the area, which was a
flourishing lumber camp over
20 years ago, are fruit trees of
every description. "You name
it, the tree will be there," Mr.
Spencer said, adding, "that
persons often went out there
to pick citrus, and various
Other fruits."
"Andrea's hands and feet
were bound and she remained
this way for over 36 hours. She
had only managed to free
herself and was wandering
around for a short time before
she was found.
"T he t wo airline
stewardesses and the male
airline employee were looking
for wood roses when they
found her. They said they had
the feeling they would find
'the missing girl.'
"They told us that they
were driving along a secondary
road when they saw a car
coming towards them. When
the driver of the other car
spotted them, he quickly made
a U-turn and sped off in the
opposite direction as though he
did not want to be seen. The
three travelled another few 100
feet when on nearing an
intersection they saw Andrea.
"They themselves were very
apprehensive because they
thought the car they had seen
was the kidnappers' car.
NO ANSWER
"They said Andrea was
wandering around in the
church grounds. They asked
her name, but she wouldn't
answer. They asked her the
names of her parents. but again

Mr. and Mrs. Spencer and
the police force issued a joint
statement after Andrea's return
Saturday. In it they thanked
"the entire Freeport
community for their
wholehearted support and
assistance during the anxious
and trying hours which passed
before the return of Andrei
and in particular" they
expressed their "sincere
appreciation to BASRA and all
the service clubs and churhchs
in Freeport.
However, said Mr
Johnstone, the police force
deserve "a great deal of praise
themselves.,,
FIRST CLASS
"They were well organized,
he said, "they were keen. They
were efficient. They did a first
class job.
As for the people of
Freeport, "they were just
terrificc" he said. "I have
never seen anything like it.
They were organized for any
emergency. It was just like
people preparing and
orgarnizing for a nuclear attack.
They had a plan for evecry
contingency."
Planes were overhead
constantly. At all times there
were several pairs of eycs
watching Mr. Spencer as he
kept his lonely vigil with an
unknown voice. If a car lost
track of him, a plane overhead
had hrim in its sights. The child
was lost, but the Frc~port
community were detfrnmined
that nothing was to happen to
Bob Spencer.
Every car on the road was
on the look-out for a lost child.
Boats searched the coastline
and the canals.
At one point Asst. Comm.
John Crawley, who was flown
to Freeport to head
investigations, was heard
;o remark: "BASRA are doing
a damn good job."
BASRA was responsible for
manning the planes and the
boats. Churches, service clubs
and individuals all participated.
"Operation Andrea" occupied
the entire Freeport community
for 39 hours.


Each call took him to yet
another Freeport nightspot,
but nowhere near the bleak
pine forest in which his
"scared* little girl crouched on
the floor of an old, abandoned
church
While he waited and hoped
the four-year-old child tried to
losen stseopeanaroomdk er

reassuring herself that she
would soon be back with
"Mummy and Daddy."
As the drama for the
abducted child was played out
Friday night and early
Saturday morning, tempers at
times between a distraught
father and members of the
Royal Bahamas Police Force
became frayed.
As a friend described it
"there was always this conflict
of interest. Bob's only concern
was for the safe return of his
daughter. The police were not
only concerned for the child,
but also for the safety of Bob
and the capture of the
culprits."
NO 'SHAKE
Mr. Spencer tried to follow
the kidnappers' instructions to
"shake off the police," but the
police would not be shaken for
fear of endangering Mr.
Spencer's life
The tensest moment
between the two came when
Bob Spencer attempted to
drive the 10-miles alone to
HIawksbill where he was
instructed to drop the ransom
money. As he started out he
saw a policeman nearby. In his
anguish he lost his temper and
Ordered him off. He started on
his drive alone, but the police
kept a discreet distance with
their patrol lights off.
Because of their presence
the ransom money was never
collected and the child's
whereabouts was not disclosed.
Mr. G~eoffrey Johnstone,
attorney for the Royal Bank of
Canada, today described Royal
Bank manager Robert Spencer,
40, as "the most courageous
man I have ever known."
The Spencers were spending
a quiet Thursday evening at
home with their two children.
It was Andrea's bedtime and

the people in his house were
friends and he named them. To
another accusation by the
voice, he replied: "I'm not

Around 7 p.m. a friend

to say that there was a message
for him in a bottle opposite the
phone booth at the driveway
of the Antoni Clinic. The caller
said the police should pick it
up and deliver it to Mr.
Spencer.
The note warned that
Andrea would die unless the
police were called off and the
kidnappers were able to
"finalize" their negotiations,
About half an hour later Mr.
Spencer answered his
telephone and assured the
caller that he had told the
police to "lay off" as his
interest was only in his
daughter.
"Will she be delivered
safely?" he asked. He suggested
to the caller that Father
Brendan Forsyth, O.S.B., and
the Rev. Sig Sandrock act as
go-betweens to take delivery of
the child and hand over the
money. The caller told Mr.
Spencer to go to a certain
restaurant, which he named.
There, he said, he would be
contacted.
He was told to take the
money in the trunk of the car.
At the restaurant, the caller
said, he would get a note or a
telephone call. And the caller
warned: "Don't bring anyone
for com fort."
Mr. Spencer assured the
voice that he would go alone.
"Where can I pick up mny
daughter?" he asked. He was
told that he would get her
before 12 o'clock that night.
Mr. Spencer told the voice that
he would telephone the police
and tell them to lay off. The
voice told him that he would
get his instructions within the
next hour. He was told to use
the "white car."
By 7:30 p.mi. Bob Spencer
had left his house in the white
car to keep his appointment.
CALLS

eleven telephone calls broke
the stillness of the Spencer
home, each one raising Mrs.

Police had asked that the

her mother was about to
prepare her for bed.
Shortly after 8 p.m. an
armed masked man appeared in
their garden at the back of
their one-storey home on
Albacore Drive, Lucaya. As Mr.
Spencer grappled with the man
and overpowered him, his
accomplice jumped in and held
a pistol to his ear.
Bob Spencer shouted to his
wife to lock the inner patio
door. Despite the lock the men
smashed it in and entered the
house.
KlCKED DOWN
Joan Spencer grabbed
Andrea and ran to the child's
bedroom and locked the door.
The masked men kicked it in.
At gunpoint Andrea was
snatched from her mother's
arms. The two masked men,
who one friend said seemed to
"know the layout of the house
very well", put the child in her
father's Caprice car and
disappeared in the darkness of
the night.
Before leaving the
kidnappers told their victims
they would hear from them
later.
No contact was made before
2 a.m. Friday when a
telephone call informed Mr.
Spencer that he would have to
pay $250,000 in return for his
daughter. He was told that
further instructions would be
given at 10 a.m. Friday.
Bob and Joan Spencer
waited, but no call came until
11:20 a.m. when Mr. Spencer
was told to take the $250,000
to his home. He was warned to
keep the police out of the
picture.
At I p.m. Friday the phone
in the Spencer home rang
again,
"Yes I have the money. It's
all cash and what you want,"
Bob Spencer told the
high-pitched voice at the other

LONDON (AP) Labour
union chiefs brushed aside
Saturday a government peace
plan aimed at averting a
nation-wide spasm of strikes.
Instead they organized a
show-of-strength rally to ram
home their threats of massive
disruptions throughout Britain.
The peace formula came
from Employment Minister
Maurice MacMillan as five big
unions mobilized their
members for widespread
stoppages to protest the
government's anti-inflation
wage curbs.
Guerrilla strikes and go-slows

Getting the pay board
moving now would speed up
reviews of the claims but

unions would get the hefty
hikes they want.
Union bosses either shrugged
off Macgiilanes offer or were
doubtful about its value. The
government has restricted pay
increases to only one pound -
2.40 dollars plus 4 per cent
of basic wages.
The National Union of

Only God can make a tree


By ETIENNE DUPUCH
AS WE daily approach the day called "independence" we see
on all sides what this new status will mean to the Bahamian
people.
Already we have passed through a purging period during which
a single Minister has been allowed to undermine the colony's



and mn most .... if not all .... other places in the British
Commonwealth of Nations.
We have seen laws pressed through the Legislature by the PLP
Government that deprive a convicted person of the right of
appeal in certain cases.
After centuries of government in the Bahamas the Legislature
recently passed a Bil giving the Government the power to "bug"
private telephones and to use other listening devices to intrude on
t privacy of the individual.
It was argued that this was necessary for security reasons.
Perhaps this is so ... but the history of society shows that this
kind of device is needed only in countries where governments
have become tyrannical and, because of their excesses, they are
afraid for themselves.
Hail freedom .... here it comes in July!

Prime Minister Pindling has made it clear that he is not afraid
of intrualon by outside forces such as Cuba but he has stated that,
on achieving an independent status, the Government will have to
strengthen its internal forces for security reasons. This, he said,
had been the experience of other newly independent territories,
If, as the Government claims, independence means greater
freedom for the Bahamian people .... then what will be the need
for a stronger police force and why should the Government feel
the need to spy on the people?
I should have thought that freedom would bring greater
happiness to a people. These measures now make it appear that
we are entering the first stages of a Police State.

~ That day I was booked to go to New York but it was important
that I should see Mr. Francis and so I cancelled the booking.
He paused for a minute and looked at me to make sure I was
listening to his story. When he was satistled that I was interested
he proceeded.
"I arrived at his office at the time appointed," he said. "When I
got there just guess what his secretary said to mle? She said, 'You
can't see Mr. Francis today, he is in the House of Assembly'."
"Do you mean to tell me that you caused me to cancel a
booking for New York and you didn't have the courtesy to let me
know that the appointment had been cancelled?", I asked her.
'What did she say?", I then asked him.
"Nothing,"' he said. "Nothing, absolutely nothing at all," he
repeated with greater emphasis. "She just sat there and looked at

Hall freedom! Here it comes with loving open arms in July!

A friend of mine in Miami asked me a question a few days ago.
I am going to write down what he told me because I couldn't
answer his question. If what he reports is true, then Government
should make a statement in the press explaining the situation.
It is possible that the condition he described is not correct
because I had not heard about it. If it isn't correct then the
Government should also make a statement to clarify the air.

He said that the head of a company here that operates a flying
ambulance service told him that he doesn't go into the Bahamas
any more because of what he described as a new licensing system
for charter flights. This man told my friend that pilots will no
longer take charter flights to the Bahamas because they are
subject to heavy fines and the aircraft might also be confiscated.
In the past, he said, groups of friends would get together and,
rather than travel by a scheduled airline, they would charter a
plane for a private flight to the Bahamas so that they could make
time to suit themselves. Now, this man claims, this privilege has
been ence ld

Usually the eastern end of the runway at the International
(:Airport in Nassan is crowded with small planes.
. The last time I flew to Nassau there wasn't a single small plane
on athet tarmac. Indeed, there was only one other plane in the

"'What's happened to all the planes that are usually on the

"It's a slack day," was his only explanation.

up in the area to bind the soil together.

That rmy be compared to this piece of folly.


This happened many years ago when Frank Christie was

He established the plant nursery maintained by the Public
Works Department and he laid out public gardens in various parts
of the island.
Lady Solomon and her sister, Mrs. Stafford Sands, Sr., and
their friends, formed the Nassau Garden Club and they worked
actively with Sir Kenneth in his programme of beautification.
This was one of the great contributions that Sir Kennetl
Solomnon made to Nassau during his public career.
One of the things he did was to plant a hedge of casuarinas on
both sides of the road, stretching for miles along the Western
Road to the far end of Cable Beach.
These trees were allowed to grow up .... their branches crossed
over the road and entwined overhead to formn almost a complete
archway along the entire route. This became the most beautiful
drive in the entire island.
Then there were a few accidents with drunken drivers along the
road during the pre-dawn hours of the morning. Most of the
victims were winter residents going home drunk or sleepy after a
night out at a bar in town.
Mr. Christie decided to remove these beautiful trees and
re lal them wth coc nut palms which he claimed were more
The Nassau Garden Club and The Tribunte fought to save these
trees but, with characteristic bull-headedness, Frank Christie
turned a deaf ear to all pleadings.
He destroyed practically all these magnificent trees, not
stopping until he got to the far end of Cable Beach where a short
stretch of the casuarinal drive has remained untouched. This is still
a beautiful spot. This was what the entire western drive looked
like before Frank Christie put the axe to thle handiwork of Sir
Kenneth Solomon and the members of the Nassau Garden Club.
And so you see .... all the damn fools are not concentrated in
the present Governlment. The Old Guard had its sharre too in more
ways than one. That is why they became the architects of their
own destruction.

DEAR ABBY: I am one of those "ear-piercers" at a
department store, so naturally I was interested in the letter
fleMI the shopper who was appalled by the screams of a
terrfied child whose mother bold her down while her ears
were being pirced. I, too, am firmly opposed to pielving
the ears of a frightened, unwilling child.
My only screamer was a two-year41d whose father told
pas that if I didn't pierce his daughter's ears, HE would do
it himself with a pair of pliers! Visualizing the possibility
of inection and a ragged, uneven job, I foolishly pierced
the child's ears, and her screams could be heard all over
the store.
Since then, I always tell the child it will "pinch" a
Ilitte, and unless the child herself sulbmits willingly, I re-
fuseto do it.

gil's ear lobe? It's nothing compared to the barbaric prac-
thee of restinely direamelsing litle boys. The claim that it
is necessary for hygencd reasons is absurd. I was a victim
of this socient, savage rite and I resent it to this day. It
my parents were alive, I would sue them!"
Well, doctor, they're lucky they're no longer here. It
might KILL them.
DEAR AWBBY: I'm a cigar maker from way back, and
for years I have been trying to find a source for a quality
eigar, but so far I've been unsuccessful. I amn looking for
one that would sell for 50 cents to $2. The cigar George
