M.P. SAYS NATIONAL RADIO BEING USED 'TO DISSEMINATE LIES'





Johnson slams ZNS for





carrying Pinewood adverts.


By NICKI KELLY
CAT ISLAND REPRESENTATIVE OSCAR JOHNSON slashed out at Radio Bahamas yesterday for continuing to carry advertisements


promoting the Pinewood Gardens development of Dutchman Robert Petry.


Oscar Johnson's controversial report


not adopted; government baulk at


2-year moratorium on development

CAT ISLAND M.P. OSCAR JOHNSON'S controversial committee report was sent back to his
committee by the House this morning when both Government and Opposition made it clear they
would not support the report's proposal for a two-year moratorium on subdivision development in


the Bahamas.
The interim report of the
select committee, appointed
last November to investigate all
matters relating to mortgage
loans, hire-purchase agreements
and subdivision land sales
.', financing, was up for House
61 adoption.
But after Government and
Opposition speakers made it
clear during the debate that
they would not support the
report in its present form, Mr.
Johnson said;
"I have received the
message from Mount Olympics;
I cannot expect the
Government to support this.
"I never expected it to be
adopted," he conceded. "But I
expected it to get the
propaganda and to pinpoint
the problem areas and it did do
that.
"It doesn't really matter
f wtethe, this report 4 adtiLLtt,,
postponed or what. We are all
professionals in this area of
politics, and you know and I


know that committee reports
come and go but the
Government of the day will do
only what it wants to do,
recommendations or no
recommendations.
DEFER
I would ask that we defer a
de,. ,r .jn .i this report until we
can deliver a more
comprehensive report covering
the whole spectrum of the
terms of reference of the
committee," Mr. Johnson said.
The report, and all debate
on the committee and the
report, have been centred
around the Pinewood Gardens
subdivision and its developer,
Dutchman Robert Petry.
Venting his personal
feelings, Mr. Johnson this
morning added: "If I had
the power I would destroy him
and his development, and
that's no joke "-
He also said he had today
received a letter from the
Bahamas Telecommunications

Corporation revealing that
Pinewood Gardens owed
$300,000 on the installation of
telephone lines in the
subdivision.
Early yesterday afternoon
Deputy Prime Minister Arthur
Hanna made it clear that,
Government could not agree
with the report's proposal for a
moratorium on subdivision
development.
"Government cannot tie its
hands in the future
development of the country,"
he said.
Today Norman Solomon
(FNM-St. George and
Dunmore) spoke for the
Opposition.
REGRETS
"The Opposition regrets that
it cannot vote in favour of the
adoption of this report,
because it is our view that it is
completely unrealistic to
contemplate even for a
moment putting a stranglehold
on future development in the
Bahamas."
He said they could not
support a moratorium even
though "there isn't any
question that certain
developers have been getting
away with legalised robbery."
Mr. Solomon took the
opportunity to lash
Government for allowing
suspect developers to operate.
"It is an extraordinary
Government," he commented,
"which talks about what others
are not doing or about what
others are doing when they
have had the opportunity for
six years to do something
about the problem we are
discussing here.
"They must know that what
is happening to the purchasers
of lots in Pinewood Gardens is
wrong. They must be aware
that what is happening to
many ordinary, poor
Bahamians is unfair,
unpalatable, unjust and
unnecessary.
"Government knows what
I'm saying is true, and that for
some six long years they have
had the power and one would
hope, the ability to do
something about it. It is still
not too late, and were it not
for clause three of the report
(proposing the moratorium)
the Opposition would have
been pleased to vote and go
along with it.
INTEREST
"We will look with great
interest," he concluded, "to
see whether the 'champions of
the people' will do anything
about rectifying a grievous
guilt."
Health Minister A. Loftus
Roker hit back:
"This Government, from the
time we came to power, has
been attempting to correct the
wrongs they (the former UBP
Government) did over 300
hundred years.
"I am satisfied the
Government is taking steps to
correct that situation, and I am
satisfied that legislation would
be brought to correct the
injustice being done to
purchasers of land as well as of
cars, refrigerators and other
household goods.
"With the quantity of ills
which afflicted this country
when we came to power, we
could only do a certain amount
at a time," the Minister said.
Mr. Johnson moved that the
report be referred back to the
committee. It was seconded by
Alfred Maycock (PLP-Fort
Fincastle) and unanimously
agreed to.


Addressing the House on his
motion for adoption of the
interim report of his land sales,
mortgage loans and hire
purchase committee, Mr.
Johnson said the "saturation
programme" on ZNS directly
contradicted remarks made in
the house by Deputy Prime
Minister Arthur Hanna, himself
and Shirlea representative Sir
Roland Symonette (FNM).
'This is the people's station
but the Dutchman has such
power that the national radio
says you can lose your house
and your wife but hold on to
your lot at Pinewood
Gardens."
The Cat Island
representative, who has been
in hot pursuit of Pinewood
since November, told members
that after the issue
was aired in the chamber
pressure was brought to bear
on those persons who sought
to bring such matters to the
House.
"As soon as this committee
brought its first report the
Katzenjammer Kids went to
work." Mr. Johnson explained
he was referring to Mr. Dudley
Byfield and Col. Oakley
Bidwell of the public relations
firm of McDermott Associates.
He said that when Mr. Petry
appeared before the committee
his first admission was that he
did not speak or understand
English well and he wanted
legal counsel present.
AT WORK
"Next night we noticed the
Katzenjammer kids at work.
The president of Pinewood
Gardens didn't waste no time
in getting at his P.R. men." Mr.
Johnson said pressure plays
were brought and "are
continuing to be brought by
the Dutchman on members of
this House and the citizens of
this country."
Mr. Johnson asserted that
his opinion of Pinewood was
worse now than before. He had
spoken to some of the
purchasers who were unable to
keep up their payments.
"I tell them to go to their
representative and tell him
about the unfairness of the
contract.
"Government sits at the
epicentre of power. It is their
responsibility to make the
developers live up to their side
of the agreement."
According to Mr. Johnson
he had written Broadcasting
Commission chairman Milo
Butler Jr. asking that Pinewood
Gardens should state what the
weekly payments were and
what the total payment would
be.
The chairman had replied
that he was "investigating these
two points,"
SOME WORK
The Cat Island
representative noted that after
the House publicity some work
had been done on Garden Hill
I, another Petry development.
Both G.H. I and II were 18
months behind, he said.
lie pointed out that the
bonds for G.H. II and III had
been signed in 1969 by
Huntington Hartford. In
Pinewood one of Mr. Petry's
sub-contractors was able to
sign the bond.
"Dutchman," he warned,
"you may go and tell your
public relations men what you
will but I will be with you until
the end."
Mr. Johnson siad that out of
80 subdivisions in the Out
Islands bonds were only held
for ten. Out of 46 subdivisions
on New Providence there were
bonds only in the case of five.
"The agencies which should
have been protecting the
people didn't insist on bonds
and the developers were able to
get all kinds of extensions."
Referring then to the
Anguilla subdivision at Cat
Island, Mr. Johnson said this
bond had no date of
conditional approval. "There
must have been some
understanding somewhere."


He maintained that June 27.


1972 Anguilla was discussed at
the Ministry of Development
with representatives from every
Ministry except three who did
not attend.
Thirteen government
Ministeries or corporations
were present.
Mr. Johnson insisted that he
had not been told about the
subdivision which had rooted
up the farms in the
breadbasket north of C(at
Island.
When he tried to determine
if the mortgage to Mr. Alexis
Nihon had been paid for he
had been told Mr. Petry was ill
and out of the country.
"When I asked BaTelCo's
policy on utilities I did not
receive an answer."
Mr. Johnson said he had
several months ago asked the
Speaker for funds to make
chartered accountants available
to look into the mortgage fi-ld
in this country where there
were certain devious practices.
STOP NOW
The committee had asked
for a moratorium on future
subdivisions. "We should stop
now with the subdivisions that
we now have and straighten up
those we have," Mr. Johnson
declared.


Matter before


OSCAR JOHNSON, M.P.
... 'what's going on?'
He wondered how Mr. Petry
was able to get approval for
Pinewood Gardens, since, his
Garden Hills project was still
not finished.
Mr. Johnson said he would
like to be informed of what
was, is to be and would be the
policy of government towards
subdivisions in this country
"And we also will ask Mr.
Petry when next we meet
what is the total sum that is
being held by him by way of
rescinded contracts and we
should know that from all
other developers of
subdivisions.
"We want to know how
much of the public's money
Mr. Petry now holds by way of
these annulled contracts.
"Petry and those are ripping
off the people's money and
using the national radio to
disseminate lies. I would like to
hear what is going on here," he
declared.
In his reply former Works
Minister Livingstone Coakley
said "categorically" that no
permission was granted by the
Ministry for Anguilla Estates.
"As far as being Minister is
concerned, I had no knowledge
of that," he said.

Johnson withdraws motion


CAT ISLAND M.P. Oscar
Johnson this morning
withdrew his motion for a
select committee to investigate
Government's acquisition of
land for the construction of
the East-West Highway when
House Speaker Arlington
Butler told the House any
discussion of the facts would
be sub judice, as the matter is
before the courts.
Mr. Johnson gave notice that
he would seek the committee
after Works Minister Simeon
Bowe told the House in
January the Government had
not yet paid compensation for
nearly half the land
appropriated because the
owners' claims were considered
"exorbitant."


Englerston Limited and
Eleuthera Adventurers, Ltd.
have filed suit in the Supreme
Court claiming a total of
$792,865.80 for 236,630
square feet of land acquired by
Government for the Highway.
Speaker Butler told Mr.
Johnson this morning that as
the matter is still before the
courts any discussion of the
facts would be sub judice.
Mr. Johnson replied that as
the House could not discuss
the facts of the case, he would
withdraw his motion for the
appointment of a committee,
but served notice that he
would be asking again for the
committee when the court
action had been resolved.


Miami longshoremen still


picketing Bahamas ships


CUBAN -American
longshoremen Tuesday
prevented the m.v. Freeport
from loading cargo at Dodge
Island Florida, as they
continued their boycott of all
freight and cruise ships serving
the Bahamas out of Miami.
A spokesman for
Mundytours, which represents
the Freeport, said that the ship
started to unload at Dodge
Island Tuesday and only
managed to get three empty
containers off when the
longshoremen threw a picket
line around the boat.
As a result it was impossible
to unload the remaining
containers or take on the 17
trailers and assorted cars
waiting to be put aboard.
The Freeport, which arrived
on its regular visit this
morning, is due in again
Saturday.
BACK ON JOB
A court injunction by a
Miami federal judge Monday
ordered members of the
International Longshoremen's
union back on the job after a
week-long boycott protesting
the imprisonment of three
Cuban-American fishermen on
poaching charges in the
Bahamas.
The appeal of the three and
a further 16 who were jointly
charged and convicted with
them is now before the courts.
Stevedoring firms employing
the longshoremen had
complained that no labour
dispute was involved, and that
they were innocent victims of


the ILA boycott.
It is understood the
longshoremen attempted to go
back to work Tuesday but
were hampered by
Cuban-American members of
the union.
Another injunction has
reportedly been issued against
this group.

five-year-old Third Street

HEALTH MINISTER MAKES

COMMUNICATION TO HOUSE



More doctors to be



recruited for Out



Island services

THE MINISTRY OF HEALTH is now in the process of
recruiting additional doctors to alleviate the shortage in the Out
Islands, Health Minister Loftus Roker told House members


yesterday.
In a three-page prepared
Communication, Mr. Roker
mentioned very briefly the
Princess Margaret Hlospital
extension and the
reorganization of the country's
health services, but chose to
concentrate on the improved
services he intended to provide
for those living in the Out
Islands.
The Minister said that when
he assumed office there were
medical officers stationed only
in Grand Bahama, Nicolls
Town, Kemps Bay, North
Eleuthera. Rock Sound,
Exuma, Cat Island, Long Island
and Inagua.
This service was expensive as
it relied largely on chartering
aircraft each day and was not
really efficient as the doctor
could spend only a short time
in each place he visited.
"Generally," said Mr. Roker
"he could give little more than
first aid treatment or arrange
for patients to be transferred
to the Princess Margaret
Hospital."
In 1972, Mr. Roker
continued, medical officers
were posted to Fresh Creek,
Cooper's Town and Acklins,
even though the doctor from
Acklins had to be moved
elsewhere to fill a vacancy.
MORE DOCTORS
"We are now in the process
of recruiting additional doctors
for the Family Islands and as
new staff arrives they will be
stationed at Governor's
Harbour, Acklins/Crooked
Island, Marsh Harbour and
Bullocks Harbour."
According to the Minister,
the medical officer at Cat
Island is now serving San
Salvador for as many days as
are required each month and
Grand Cay, Elbow Cay, Sandy
Point and Sweetings Cay are
being served from Coopers
Town.
With the recruitment of
additional medical officers in
the next few months it is
expected that only the Exuma
Cays, Ragged Island and
Mayaguana will be served by a
flying doctor and if airline
schedules permit, Mayaguana
will be served from Crooked
Island.
"This will virtually eliminate
the flying doctor service and
provide a better level of health
care for those who live in the
Family Islands," Mr. Roker
said.
He explained that none of
these changes would affect the
arrangements for emergency
flights which would continue
to remain in effect and would
enable a doctor or a nurse to
call for an aircraft to fly any
seriously ill patient to Nassau.
DIRECT LINK
"Other changes are also
planned which will associate
the work of the doctors and
nurses in the Family Islands
more directly with the medical
services in Nassau," Mr. Roker
declared.
"The Public Health
Department has been given
responsibility for the
Community Nursing Service
and this Service in turn is now
responsible for all nurses
stationed in the islands," the
Minister said.
"These nurses are thus a part
of a specific department within
the Ministry with an
administrative organization to
look after their needs and to
pay attention to their training,
tie level of services they can
offer and the organization of
their work.
"Regular visits are now paid
to the Family Island nurses by
the supervisory staff of the
Community Nursing Service."
Mr. Roker said that this
closer supervision of nurses,
"who for years have been
doing a very commendable job
operating very much on their
own," will enable the Ministry
to collect data which is sorely
lacking, to identify problem
areas and to plan more
accurately for the health care


ot the people in these areas.
In the Out Islands the
conditions of service of doctors
is being changed from one
which allowed private practice
to one where there will be no
charge to patients seen at the
clinics,, and no charge for
prescriptions will be made of
such patients, Mr. Roker said.
For too long, he added,
"health facilities have grown
by 'crisis' resulting from
pressures of one sort
on another."
Mr. Roker said it was his
intention that this should cease
and that the health services
throughout the Bahamas
should grow as a result of
planned development.
"This is a long term project
but I felt that the Members of
this Parliament would wish to
know of these plans," he
added.

'SMALL CHARGE'

FOR PNH DRUGS
lHEALTHI Minister Loftus
Roker plans to impose a "small
charge" for drugs dispensed by
the Princess Margaret Hospital
pharmacy.
Mr. Roker told members of
the House yesterday that the
new charge will help provide
the funds for improving
medical services in the Out
Islands.
"It will not be the intention
to sell these drugs at a profit or
even at cost but to institute a
modest charge which will go
some way toward covering
their cost and provide greater
income for the services
provided by the Ministry," he
said.
Even with the imposition of
this charge arrangements will
be made whereby those
patients who cannot afford to
pay for their drugs will get
them free of charge, the
Minister explained.
Mr. Roker addressed the
House briefly on his plans for
the expansion of medical
service in the Out Islands.

TRUDEAUS TO ENJOY

ANDROS HOLIDAY

PRIME MINISTER Pierre
Trudeau of Canada is expected
to arrive in Nassau either today
or tomorrow to join his wife
for a secluded vacation at
Andros.
Mrs. Trudeau is already at
the island.
The Ministry of External
Affairs confirmed that the
Prime Minister was planning to
visit the Bahamas, but said that
it was a purely private visit and
the couple wished no publicity.

HALF-BROTHER TO

PRE-BOARDING HIGHJACKING ATTEMPT FOILED
SPOKANE, WASHINGTON (AP)- An unidentified man was critically
wounded In a gun battle with Spokane International Airport police
Wednesday after shooting one of two hostages he took In what the U.S.
Federal Aviation Administration said was a skyjack attempt.
The man had taken an air force enlisted man and a National Weather
Service employee hostage after alighting from a vehicle in front of the
airport terminal, an FAA spokesman said. The man was armed with a rifle,
the spokesman said.
After taking the hostages, the man shouted: "Get me an airplane"
The exact sequence of events that followed was not immediately clear,
the FAA said, but the man apparently shot the air force hostage and beat
the NWS employee with the rifle butt after entering the terminal. The air
force man was taken to a nearby hospital.
The gun fight apparently broke out in the terminal after guards ordered
the man to drop his rifle.
The FAA identified one of the airport security officers involved as
assistant chief of security James Worsham.
MASS MURDER BY FIRE
BRISBANE (AP)- Fifteen girls and men died in a night club fire early
Thursday in what police called the greatest mass murder in Australian
history.
Police found two four-gallon drums that had contained gasoline or
another inflammable fluid which was splashed around the club and then set
atSome reports said the burning of the "Whisky-A-Go-Go" club was part
of an extortion racket to take protection money from nightclub owners in
Brisbane and the holiday resort of the Gold Coast, 50 miles away.
OPPOSITION WALK OUT OF BARBADOS ASSEMBLY
BRIDGETOWN. BARBADOS, March 7 (AP)- Opposition members
walked out of the House of Assembly Tuesday night in protest of a new
gag rule.
Assembly Chairman Russell I.owe used the measure for the first time to
limit the time a member of the legislature could speak on the floor.
Burton Hinds, an Opposition member, had spoken on a matter relating
to the Valuation Department, and was followed by the Opposition Leader
Tom Adams. When Hinds rose to speak again Lowe drew attention to the
new standing orders. The Opposition members then walked out of the
chamber. The new orders placing time limits on members' speeches became
effective on Feb. 27. They were drawn up by a select committee of
members of both sides of the House and were later debated in the House
and passed with amendments from both the Government and the
Oppositi on.
According to the nature of the business limits of 30 and 15 minutes have
been placed on members with exceptions affecting the Prime Minister, the
Leader of the Opposition or his Deputy and a Minister moving a
government order.
This is the first time in the 334 year-old history of parliament in
Barbados that time limits have been placed on members' speeches.
Government business went on uninterrupted and several items were passed
in rapid succession.
RULING IN FAVOUR OF FREEDOM OF THE PRESS
MIAMI, March 7 (AP)- The Inter American Press Association has
voiced its "deep satisfaction" over a court ruling In Antigua, British West
Indies, that declared two restrictive press laws unconstitutional.
One of these laws forced newspapers to post a bond of 5,000 dollars
against possible libel action; the other established an annual licensing fee of
S300 dollars.
German Ornes, chairman of the IAPA's committee on Freedom of the
SPress and publisher of "El Caribe," Santo Domingo, said the ruling by
Justice Allan Luisy "justifies the faith we have always had in Antigua's
courts. We were sure there would be a ruling in this dangerous situation in
favour of freedom of the press. The ruling is a source of deep satisfaction
to us."
Ornes and G. A. Sherman, vice-chairman of the committee on Freedom
of the Press and managing director of "The Gleaner", Kingston Jamaica,
* travelled to Antigua last year to urge revocation of the two measures.
ARAB RULERS' POLICIES "STERILE & BANKRUPT"
LONDON (AP)- President Muammar Kaddafi of Libya bitterly assailed
fellow-leaders of the Arab world for conducting policies he calls sterile and
bankrupt, according to a speech monitored here Wednesday.
If policies remain unchanged, the Libyan strongman was quoted as
saying, the Arabs ultimately will "recognize the existence of the Zionist
Empire" and possibly become "citizens of the Jewish State."
Kaddafl was addressing Libyan intellectuals in Benghazi Tuesday. An
account of his speech, transmitted by the State Radio, was monitored in
London by the British Broadcasting Corporation.
The BBC reported Kaddafi coupled his criticisms of Arab policies with
r h accusation against both the United States and the Soviet Union for
supposedly "conspiring against the future of the Arab region."
The Americans, he said, were doing so by giving arms to Israel. The
Russians, he claimed, were doing so by providing specialized manpower to
Israel through the emigration of Soviet Jews.
The BBC quoted Kaddafl as saying present policies of the Arab rulers
toward Israel are sterile and bankrupt because they had stopped thinking
about "liberating" Arab Palestine.
STROKE FROM TAKING ORAL CONTRACEPTIVES?
BAKERSFIELD, CALIFORNIA (AP)- Hearing on a multi-million
dollar law suit described by one attorney as "the most important
pharmaceutical trial in the United States" began here Wednesday.
'iae Superior court suit, filed against an international drug firm and two
Bakersfield physicians, asks 6.5 million dollars in damages on behalf of a
woman who assertedly suffered a stroke as the result of taking oral
contraceptives
The suit was filed by James H. Henard of Blythe, Calif., himself a
cripple, on behalf of his wife, Larine, who suffered permanent partial
paralysis as a result of the stroke.
Defendants in the trial are the Syntex Corp. of Panama, which has
offices In Palo Alto, Calif., and Syntex Labs in Delaware, and Harry C.
Wong and Richard C. Wallace; both Bakersfield physicians.

VOTERS CREATE ALMOST ONE-PARTY SYSTEM
DACCA, BANGLADESH (AP)- Prime Minister Sheikh Mujibur
Rahman's ruling Awami League obliterated a dozen opposition parties
Wednesday, creating the prospect of almost a one-party system in
Bangladesh's first parliament.
As ballot-counters worked into Thursday morning, Awami Leaguers had
won by unofficial tally 131 of the 288 contested seats and the opposition
parties none.
Opposition candidates led in 10 constituencies, but the Awami League
contenders seemed strong enough to take at least half of those.
There was no indication whether Majib would alter the makeup of his
Cabinet, although two ministers had trouble in the voting.
Foreign Minister Abdus Samad Azad won election in a constituency in
Sylhet but he was engaged in a close battle in his home constituency in the
simse town.
After trailing through most of the early counting Home Minister Abdul
Mannan whose portfolio includes control of the police-took the lead
briefly in the early morning but again fell behind and appeared to be in
trouble.

blasts rock London, MAKARIOS


150 persons injured


LONDON (AP) Two powerful explosions erupted in Central
London Thursday and police on the scene of one of the blasts -
at the Old Bailey Central Criminal Court said there might be


150 casualties.
The explosions, only a few
hours after police defused a
huge bomb outside Scotland
Yard, the British capital's
police headquarters, came
almost simultaneously, hitting
the Old Bailey and Whitehall, a
street of major government
ministries.
At the Old Bailey children
wrapped in blankets were seen
being loaded into fleets of
ambulances.
But police said they did not
believe there were any deaths.
Police sources said the blasts
seem to be the work of the
militant 'provisional' wing of
the outlawed Irish Republican
Army, which made no secret of
its intention to disrupt
Thursday's referendum on
whether Northern Ireland
should stay within the United
Kingdom.
The London Times said it
received a telephone call at
about 2 p.m. roughly an
hour before the blasts at
the Old Bailey and Whitehall
from a man with an Irish
accent who warned of car
bomb explosions to come.
LIKE BITZ
One Old Bailey eyewitness
said: "It's like the blitz all over
again."
Prime Minister Edward
Heath was in the House of
Commons when the bombs
exploded. A spokesman at his
London residence, No. 10
Downing Street, said Heath
had immediately been
informed of the blasts.
Heath was due to meet with
Ireland's Premier-elect, Liam
Cosgrave, later in the day and
the spokesman said: "There
has been no rearrangement of
the programme because of
these explosions."
Among the wrecks of cars
outside the Old Bailey
extension building -
completed at a cost of seven
million pounds, or 17.50
million dollars -
ambulancemen carried an inert
man over a heap of broken
glass and swirling water from
burst pipes.
St. Bartholomew's, a major
London hospital, reported it
had taken in 30 casualties.
London's hospitals were
working under the strain of a
strike by auxiliary workers -
the people who do laundry,
cook meals, and clean up.
300 INJURED
A senior ambulanceman at
the Old Bailey estimated there
were 300 injured there.
London ambulance
headquarters said it was still
tallying casualties and "there
are a lot."
Some of the seriously
injured were said to be police.
The explosions came only a
few hours after police
discovered and defused a
150 pound bomb placed in a
car outside Scotland Yard,
headquarters of London's
police force.
At that time Scotland Yard
issued an urgent public warning
that more bombs might have
been placed at strategic
buildings in Central London.
A Scotland Yard spokesman
said information from Ireland
had pointed to a car bomb
assault being made on London
Thursday the day strife-torn
Northern Ireland votes on
whether to remain British or
become part of the Irish
Republic.
Police said the Scotland
Yard bomb was timed to go off
at 3 p.m. The Whitehall and
old Bailey explosions erupted
at about the same time.


The police warning to the
public after the Scotland Yard
discovery highlighted the
danger of suspiciously parked
cars. But the task confronting
bomb-searchers was daunting -
London was packed with
thousands of cars used by
commuters to escape the
effects of a nationwide rail
strike. Farrington Street, a
wide highway 100 meters from
the Old Bailey, was jammed
with ambulances, fire trucks
and snarled up traffic as well
as crowds of sightseers.
Gallons of water gushed
down a narrow alleyway from
the courthouse building into
Farrington Street.
Police informants said that
minutes before the explosion a
busload of children near the
courthouse had been told by
officers to move out of the
area. As the children fled, the
informants said, the blast
came.
A police spokesman at the
Old Bailey said: "There are in
excess of 150 casualties."
Courthouse newsmen
reported complete confusion.
"It seemed all the windows and
showers of debris crashed in,"
one said.
Outside, cars were blown on
their sides, water mains burst
and police and firemen rushed
through clouds of smoke to
give aid. Children wrapped in
blankets were being loaded
into ambulances.
"I know exactly what they
must feel like in Northern
Ireland now," said Eddie
Moon, a 53-year-old Londoner.
The car bomb over the past 31A
years has become a favourite
weapon of Irish terrorists.
Moon was working in an
office building some 75 yards
from the Old Bailey. "The
windows about me just
disintegrated," he said.
"Everyone fell to the floor."
Some London taxis refused
to take newsmen to the scene.
"Not me. mate." one retorted.
The Whitehall blast appeared
to have come directly
outside an army recruiting
office. Britain has more than
17,000 troops in Northern
Ireland.
A warning appeared to have
been given. "Police came and
told us to clear the building,"
said a shaken sergeant Phillip
Reynolds.
"We got out and in about 10
minutes the bomb went off. It
was a really big explosion."
Shortly after the twin
blasts, police reported a fourth
bomb had been discovered in
Dean Stanley Street,
Westminster, near the
headquarters of the ruling
Conservative Party and the
opposition Labour Party.
Police said it was safely
defused.
A telephone warning that
there was another bomb, in the
office of The Times of
London, caused a complete
evacuation. A search was going
on.
A number of government
offices were cleared of staff,
including the Foreign Office.
Evacuees included Foreign
Minister Sir Alec
Douglas-Home.
The worst blast appeared to
be the one at the Old Bailey.
The explosion completely
wrecked the George Tavern
across the road.
In the hallway of the old
courthouse women and men
rushed about with blood
gushing from their faces.
Injuries appeared mainly to
have been caused by flying
alhs.


NICOSIA (AP) Archbishop
Makarios, the President of the
Cyprus Republic, was
unfrocked Thursday by the
Holy Synod of the Greek
Orthodox Church of Cyprus.
An announcement by the
three bishops forming the
Synod said its decision will be
implemented after 30 days
from Thursday to give
Makarios time to submit an
appeal if he so wishes.
Makarios was tried by the
Synod in absentina, after
rejecting summons from the
three bishops to appear before
it and testify in his defense.
In a letter to the three
bishops earlier this week,
rejecting their summons,
Marakios said the convening of
the Synod by them "was
irregular and unconstitutional
and consequently any decision
taken by it was null and void
from the beginning."
The three dissident bishops
accused Makarios of violating
ecclesiastical law by exercising
temporal power as the
President of the island
Republic.
They first demanded his
resignation as President at a
properly convened meeting of
the Synod a year ago last
March.
But Makarios has maintained
all along the three have no
right either to demand his
resignation as President or to
take any steps against him for
refusing to do so.

as Now York Mayor

NEW YORK (AP)- New York
Mayor John V. Lindsay said
Wednesday he would not seek
re-election to a third term In what
he has called "the second toughest
job in the nation."
Lindsay, 51, made the
announcement at a City hall news
conference.
Denied the Republican Party
endorsement for the office in 1969
Lindsay won election under the
Liberal and Independent banners.
He switched to the Democratic
Party In August 1971 for an
unsuccessful Presidential bid.
ULindsay first ran for Mayor
midway through his fourth term in
Congress In 1965. As a Reoublican
and Liberal, he trounced Abraham
Became, now the city comptroller
and still a potential Democratic
candidate, and the Conservative
nominee, author and columnist
William F. Buckley Jr.
The 6 foot 3 Lindsay was one of
the so-called charisma politicians of
the 1960a, noted for his walks
through the city's ethnic
neighborhoods, his sandy hair,
smile and Hollywood looks clearly
visible in the throng. Munching
pizza and donning a yarmulke
where appropriate, he spoke of
urban crises and struck against the
Vietnam War.
Lindsay began his political career
as a Republican Congressman from
Manhattan's heavily Democratic
17th district, called the "slk
stocking district" after the wealth
of its residents in plush apartment
houses and brownstone town
houses on the East side.
Except for two years is
executive assistant to U.S. Atty.
Gen. Herbert Brownell, Lindsay
had spent the 10 years after his
graduation from Yale law school in
private practice.
He was subsequently elected to
four terms in Congress and then ran
a strenuous campaign to win his
first city wide office,
His administration began with a
12-day subway strike that left
many New Yorkers footsore and
angry. Then there was a nine-day
strike of sanitation men and
mounds and mounds of garage
spilling into the streets.
During his mayoral career, a
blizzard paralysed sections of
Queens and imprisoned many
residents in their homes. Lindsay
was criticized then for falling to
launch a full-scale snow assault
until too late.
Also Lindsay was blamed for
lengthy strikes by teachers in
Brooklyn's Brownsville section. A
year ago, residents of the Forest
Hills section of Queens
demonstrated daly at a middle-and
low-income housing project which
Lindsay had promoted to disperse
ghetto residents.
in 1969, Lindsay ran for a
second term but was denied the
Republican Party endorsement In
favour a Conservative state Senator
from Staten Island, John 3. Marehi.

Wounded Knee Indians ElRtR IN SLAYINS

a ft 0SF BELSIAN ENVOY


given 'til 8pm. to


leave village unarmed


WOUNDED KNEE, SOUTH DAKOTA (AP)-Federal
authorities have given the militant Indians holding Wounded
Knee, South Dakota until 8 p.m. EST to leave the village
unarmed. And women and children already have begun leaving
the town.


After 8 p.m., any of the
invaders attempting to leave
will be subject to immediate
arrest. Federal Authorities also
said they will not continue
negotiating with the Indians,
who seized the town February
27. They described the
situation as grave.
Leaders of the American
Indian call this a threat that
armed government agents will
mount an attack.
The government broke off
talks at Wounded Knee
Wednesday and a federal
spokesman said 500 shots were
exchanged during the night
between militant Indians and
lawmen.
There were no injuries
reported in the shooting, the
most intensive since the
takeover of the tiny village
eight days ago.
The government spokesman
said about 250 rounds of
ammunition were fired by each
side. No further details were
given. Newsmen earlier had
reported hearing gunfire
through the night, including
what they believed to be
automatic rifle fire.
The government,
announcing the break in talks,
said it was willing to resume
negotiations only if the 200
Indians holding the town
modify their demands.
When American Indian
Movement (AIM) leaders
learned of the government
decision they seemed surprised,
but reacted strongly.
"If they won't talk, we'll
just negotiate purchase of this
property with the people in
there and stay here," said AIM
leader Dennis Banks pointing
to a house where the original
hostages had been living.
ULTIMATUM
Ralph Erickson, top Justice
Department official, said his
offer that non-residents of
Wounded Knee can depart the
village unarmed will expire at 8
p.m. est Thursday. "I do not
expect that it will be
extended," he said.
Erickson said both the
Justice and Interior
Departments agreed that no
further government
concessions can be made unless
leaders of the American Indian
Movement withdraw or
substantially modify three of
their demands.
These demands, Erickson
said, included:
That the highest ranking
interior department official
charged with Indian affairs
confer in Wounded Knee with
AIM leaders.
That the tribal council
of the Oglala Siox be


REFORMERS AID
GAULLIST SEATS
PARIS (AP)- Premier Pierre
Mesmer urged voters Wednesday to
build "a dam against Communism"
as battle lines were drawn for the
second round of balloting for the
French National Assembly.
One more piece in the jumbled
political scene fell into place with a
decision by the opposition'
Reformers to help the government
candidates in Sunday's runoff.
Jean Lecanuet, co-leader of the
Reformers with Jean-Jacques
Servan-Schrelber, told his followers
to withdraw their candidacy in
every district where this could help
keep out the leftists, a coalition of
Communists and Socialists.
A reform withdrawal means that
most of the votes would go to the
Gaullista. Lecanuet denied in a
radio interview that there had been
*a formal arrangement with the
Gaullista to help them out.


suspended and that tribal
president Richard Wilson be
dismissed and new elections
ordered.
0 That three Indians
arrested early Tuesday as they
tried to pass federal lines be
released and returned to
Wounded Knee.
Erickson said that the
interior department cannot
interfere with tribal laws unless
there is a breakdown within
tribal government. He said the
Justice Department concurs
with the Interior decision to
refuse the first two demands.
As for the release of federal
prisoners, Erickson said that is
out of the question.
NO BASIS
"We find no basis on which
we can negotiate further," he
said. He said the federal
attorneys for North and South
Dakota, who have acted as
federal negotiators, were
ordered to return home and
Erickson plans to return to
Washington.
Charles G. Soller, Assistant
general counsel for the Interior
Department, will remain at the
Pine Ridge Reservation and be
available for further talks with
the Indians provided, Erickson
said, the three demands are
modified.
Erickson stressed again the
offer to allow the Indians to
depart without the threat of
mass arrest is not an amnesty.
"There never was, there is no
amnesty and there never will
be amnesty," he said.
The shooting overnight was
the first since Saturday, except
for random gunshots heard
near the encampment.
The 200 Indians who have
occupied Wounded Knee since
Feb. 27 called off a cease fire
Tuesday night. It has been in
effect since Saturday.


BRUSSELS (AP)- Belgian
diplomat Guy Eld lost his life in
Khartoum because of two mistakes,
a Foreign Office spokesman said
Wednesday.
The attackers planned to seize
the West German envoy but got Lid
instead, then they shot Eid because
they thought he was a Jew but Eid
was of Arab descent.
Releasing new details of last
week's killings by Palestinian Black
Septemberists at the Saudi Arabian
embassy the official said that the
terrorists opened fire as soon as
they got to the building. Eid was
wounded and unable to escape as
some diplomats did.
The two American diplomats
who were taken hostage and shot
were just leaving the reception
when their car was blocked by the
terrorists' jeep arriving. The party
was for departing U.S. charge
d'affaires G. Curtis Moore and
recently arrived ambassador Cleo A.
Noel Jr. Both were later shot dead.
The Belgian official said that the
terrorists took advantage of the
Khartoum police preoccupation
with the visit of Ethiopian emperor
Halle Selassie. The Saudi Embassy
was left practically unprotected, he
said.
There were markings on the
terrorists' jeep reading
"International Truce Commission."
The guerrillas later rounded up
all the guests at the embassy, the
foreign minister spokesman said
and looked for the West German
ambassador. He was at the airport
to welcome a high official from his
country.
The spokesman said that Belgian
authorities tried in vain to convince
the terrorists that Eid was not a
Jew. even sending his Christian
baptism certificate.
He said that Belgian authorities
had evidence of links between the
two Palestinian organizations At
Fatah and Black September. He
said that Al Fatah had abused
Sudanese hospitality to prepare or
help prepare the attack.

A lost generation


By ETIENNE DUPUCH
YESTERDAY and the day before I told you about a
conversation I had with two Rotarians at a meeting here on
Thursday.
As you know, Rotarians are drawn from the successful men in
a community .... the kind of monied people the Minister of
Tourism meant when he recently spoke of the need for the
colony to attract more "quality" tourists.
At this time of the year Miami is crowded with tourists drawn
from all parts of the nation. This means I am now getting a
sampling each week of the image of the Bahamas among the kind
of people who formerly made Nassau a mecca for quality tourists.
I can honestly say that I never bring up the subject to these
people. As soon as anyone I meet at the Thursday gatherings hear
I am from Nassau he starts talking right away .... and it is always
in the same strain. He has either been to Nassau or Freeport and
will not return, or that he has planned a visit to the islands and
was then having second thoughts because of the reports he had
heard about conditions there.

A few weeks ago a friend of mine phoned me from New York.
He had visited the Bahamas several times in previous years. He
told me he was going to a week-long meeting in Freeport and
then on to Nassau for a week. This time he was taking his wife
and daughter with him.
On a previous visit he had lived at a hotel on Paradise Island
and didn't like the atmosphere there. This time he thought he
would stay at a beach hotel on Nassau. lie asked me to
recommend a place I did.
When he spoke with me I had no thought of going to Nassau
but two or three days later I got a phone call from my daughter
asking me to come home for business reasons.
On my arrival I found to my surprise that my New York friend
had already been to Freeport and come on to Nassau. He had
already booked in at a beach hotel in Nassau .... his wife and
daughter didn't like the place .... and so he had taken them to a
hotel on Paradise Island. They planned to stay there until the
following Monday and so I asked them to have lunch with my
wife and me at the East Hill Club on Saturday. This was then
Thursday.
Late that evening he phoned to say he was sorry .... they were
leaving the next afternoon. This meant that the only way I could
take them out was to have the man for lunch at Rotary and for
my wife to take the ladies to lunch at the East Hill Club. We
joined them at their hotel before lunch and drove them to the
airport after lunch.
Why had they left Freeport so quickly?
They spoke of a number of unpleasant experiences there. One
of their saddest stories was about what happened to some friends
of theirs in a taxi at Freeport.
The driver had the volume on his radio turned up so high that
the people in the cab asked him to tune it down a little.
"This is my Prime Minister speaking," the driver told him. "If
you don't like it, I'll take you back to the hotel and put you out
of my cab."
These people left the same day!
Why had he left the beach hotel in Nassau?
His wife and daughter didn't like anything about the place and
so they tried Paradise. They liked Paradise better but somehow
they had suddenly decided that they had had enough, they were
going back home.
"It's costing too damn much and we're getting nothing out of
it," my friend explained.
The money wasn't the problem because he is a well-off man.
Often when I go to New York and try to pay my bill on checking
out I find that it is already paid. Whenever he knows I'm coming
to New York he meets me at the airport and on more than one
occasion on arriving in London I find a limousine waiting at the
airport for me .... compliments of my New York friend's London
office.
On a previous visit he brought one of his two sons with him.
They went to Harbour Island .... and loved it.
This means that this family will never return to the Bahamas.
And they will be certain to spread the news.

It is in this way that the men I meet at Rotary here are so well


informed about the change in attitude that has overtaken our
people since they have become intoxicated with power.
Incidentally, my New York friend told me of an interesting
conversation he had with a taxi driver. This man said he liked his
government but felt that they were trying to do too much, too
fast. He felt that they were spending far too much money on
education.
Well, that was one point of view.
I mention this incident because the man at Rotary who spoke
about Bobby Symonette .... once a leading business man and an
outstanding figure in parliament .... now being a playboy, also
made a comment that turned our conversation to education.
"I can't understand why things have soured in the Bahamas,"
he said. "The islands had everything going for them. After all, Mr.
Pindling is no fool. Surely he must have some common sense."
"I suppose you are thinking about education," I suggested.
"Yes," he agreed. "Aren't Mr. Pindling and some members of
his Cabinet educated men?"
"Yes," I agreed, "but education does not impart common
sense. Education is nothing more than a thin veneer. Surely you
must know that there is no fool like an educated fool." As my
friend Bosfield Johnson would say .... it's in the bedrock that
counts.
"You people in the U.S. have made a fetish for education," I
continued. "A man can'iget a good job in the U.S. today unless
he has a college degree. When I employ a man I am more
concerned about his character than his education. I built my
business in Nassau with people of character, reliable people who
had a sense of responsibility and a feeling of loyalty to the
organization."
"Character," he echoed, "that's a word you seldom hear any
more."

20 CONVICTS RIOT
IN JAMAICA JAIL
KINGSTON, ONT. (AP) -
About 20 convicts rioted in the
Milihaven maximum security
institution during the night and
were wandering about the
cell-block Wednesday but guards


had not entered the area.
"There are ni hostages and no
injuries to either guards ,or
inmates." said Mel Willard, assistant
warden.
"The inmates smashed through
some cement block walls between
the cells and probably have broken
up chairs and tables. We really
haven't been in there to assess the
extent of the damage "
The disturbance occurred on one
part of the institution which houses
380 convicts. The prisoners have
been on a sit down strike for the
last nine days.
Although prison officials have
declined to sas the cause of the
sit-down, the strike has been in
apparent protest over withdrawal of
some prisoner privileges as the
result of a mass escape by 14
convicts last July.


"Exactly," I agreed. "And that's the trouble. There is an
element in nature that no one can overcome. It is an established
fact that if you take a hundred people from any community ....
white, black, pink, blue or green .... and make them all Ph.D's
only three to five percent will develop sound leadership capacity.
This is something a person is born with. It's in the bedrock of a
person's character. Education can build it up but it can't impart it
in the first place."
Gradually people in the U.S. are beginning to realize this fact
as farms and small towns .... the strength of any nation .... are
being deserted by young people waving a college degree that
makes them feel that they are entitled to a place at the top of
the pile in the big city.
The result is that a great majority of the people in the U.S.
today are frustrated.
Remember what I told you the Negro said in a TV interview
last Sunday. In travelling around the nation, he found that not
only Negroes were dissatisfied. There was dissatisfaction
everywhere. Every group of people he had come in contact with
felt that they were being deprived of something.
Remember also what the young girl speaking on dope
addiction among youth in the nation said. She warned that there
was the danger of the U.S. having a "lost generation" during this
period in its history. This means that the most highly educated
nation in recorded history is decaying at its roots, a condition
that has preceded the downfall of every great power in history.
Education has a value in itself for people who can afford the
luxury. But for the mass of people there must be a job at the end
of the line when a young person comes out of school, otherwise
you are creating frustrations that are bound to make a bad citizen
out of a person who might otherwise have found his own natural
level in life.
In the Bahamas today the Government is destroying the job
market with an immigration policy that makes business and
industrial growth impossible, and at the same time it is producing
thousands of young people for jobs that don't exist. Already the
Government is feeling the pinch. This is why Government now
wants to reduce the retirement age in the public service to make
room for young people coming home from college which they
attended on scholarships provided by the Government and to
whom Government is obliged to give a job.

The young people in the U.S. today are becoming a lost ....
confused .... generation because they are surrounded by
discontent and confusion among their parents. As the mait
lamented when I spoke about "character" in our conversation at
Rotary .... that is a word one never hears any more.

The situation in the Bahamas today is brought about by several
factors, mostly a lack of common sense combined with inbred
racial hatreds.
No one would suggest that the people of Northern Ireland are
not intelligent and educated. But see what is happening there.
There are two areas of life in which people become completely
irrational. They are race and religion.
Ireland is being torn apart by religious conflicts.
The Bahamas is being destroyed by racial hatreds.
And there isn't anything anyone can do about it until the
mental disease has run its full course. People, alas, learn only
through suffering.
***** ***
FOOTNOTE TO HISTORY: The American people are shocked
by what has happened to their Almighty Dollar. No one would
have thought this possible.
In spite of this fact'President Nixon is now talking about
spending two and a half billion dollars on rebuilding North
Vietnam.
The people of America rightly feel that their present financial
troubles arise from the fact that too many American dollars are
being sent abroad .... such as this plan to rebuild a Communist
country and the millions that are now being spent to no purpose
in the Bahamas. The American government has not yet learned
that they cannot buy friendships.
Congress is now beginning to grumble. There is a possibility
that the American people will soon demand a stop to this
national folly.
** ********
THOUGHTS FOR TODAY
The more a man is educated, the more is it necessary, for the
welfare of the State, to instruct him how to make a proper use of
his talents. Education is like a doubl.--edgecd sword. It may be
turned to dangerous usages if it is :,ot pr '_,'r:. handled.
WU TING-FANG

When the time eventually comes that everyone has a Ph.D. the
last garbage man will make a fortune.

Trial of charterboat captain for murder of his sweetheart opens


REDFORD Raymond Davis,
60, a Dunmore Avenue,
Chippingi 'n, charter-boat
captain went on trial in the
Supreme Court Wednesday
morning charged with the
murder Lf his 30-year-old
sweetheart, Cleola Grant,
sometime between October 18
and 19 last year.
He was also charged with


manslaughter in the alternative.
The case is being heard
before Mr. Justice Samuel
Graham and is prosecuted by
Solicitor General Langton
Hilton.
Opening the case for the
prosecution, Mr. Hilton
told jurors the "Crown's
allegation is that the accused


fatally stabbed Cleola Gran'
thereby causing her death."
He told them that "very
little is known of the death of
Cleola Grant except by
conversations with the
accused." Mr. Hilton said Davis
took the deceased to hospital
and left immediately after
seeing her admitted, declining


to give information to a staff
nurse at the Out Patients
Department.
Davis left the hospital for
the police station. Mr. Hilton
said, adding that after
approaching police Cpl. Ellis,
he was referred to Assistant
Superintendent of Police
Fletcher Johnson.
Davis, represented by
attorney J. Henry Bostwick
and appearing in court this
morning dressed in light-brown
trousers and jacket with yellow
shirt and sandals, had told both
A.S.P. Johnson and Cpl. Ellis
that he had found his
sweetheart lying face-down on
the floor of their kitchen, Mr.
Hilton said.
He was charged after he and
A.S.P. Johnson visited the
scene at his home where they
saw blood stains on the floor


and rug in the kitchen and a
cutlass outside in the yard.
Mr. Hilton said he
volunteered to "tell the truth"
to A.S.P. Johnson after the
visit and his statement was
recorded.
"The most crucial and
important bit of evidence is
contained in the statement ...
only the accused could
truthfully say what happened
on the night as there were no
other witnesses," Mr. Hilton
said
This morning, Princess
Margaret Hospital pathologist
Dr. Joan Margaret Read
testified that in her opinion,
Grant's death was "due to a
stab wound of the chest"
which formed a track from the
lower part of the left breast
and into the liver.
The wound was roughly
circular and about /4-inch
across, passing through the
bone of the fifth rib, entering
the left lung and across the
back of the heart, making a
linear wound in the heart
muscle, but not actually
entering the heart.


"It went through the aorta
- the largest artery in the body
- and through the lower part
of the right lung .-nd through
the diaphragm and into the
liver." Dr. Read said.
She added that "there was
approximately four pints of
blood free in the chest and the
direction of the wound v as
from left to right and slightly
downwards. The total length
was about 10-inches."
She also said that the liver
showed chronic sclerosis and

I had my horoscope read last week, and this lady told
me if I had another baby it would be boy! This really got

would have another baby. I love my six little daughters

Assuring sex of unborn child isn't in the


dearly, but I wouldn't want another girl.
Do you have any faith in astrology? I am an Aries and
my husband is a Libra if that means anything.
WANTS A BOY
DEAR WANTS: I had my beroecope read last year by
an expert who did eat know who I was. She told me that I
had hidden talents and I should try to find some kid of
career to fill my idle hb-s. She also said my husband
(who, aldentadly has never ehanged a light bulb] was
handy areoud the house. If you want to gamble go to Las
Vegas.
DEAR ABBY: After 23 years of being a virgin I gave
myself to a guy I thought I loved. I never had another guy
and never wanted one-until now. I've never discussed my
sex life with anyone so I really don't know if my case is
special or not. My boy friend calls me a nagging pain-in-the
neck. You see, be doesn't kiss me before or after. He never
was overly affectionate but he used to kiss me more before
I gave in to him.
Maybe I'm expecting too much, but I feel so cheap
having sex with a guy who doesn't even kiss me. This isn't
what I expected lovemaking to be like at all. I am a clean
and attractive girl, but it seems like my boy friend wants
just one thing, and after he gets it he hardly pays any
attention to me. Is there something wrong with me? Or is it
him? F~LIING BLUE


DEAR FEELING: First, let's get our deflanitions
straight "Having sex" and "making love" are two differ-
ent things. Having sex is grabbing whoever Is handy, right
now, without todemness or preliminaries. Making love is
caring and sharing and wanting to give pleasure more than
getting It. Yeu want someone to make love to you. Your


stars


boy friend wants someone to have sex with.
DEAR ABBY: I am 20 years old and I'm going with
this great guy who wants to marry me. Well, rm S0
pounds, and he's always after me to lose weight, but I'm
happy the way I am.
It may sound crazy, but I enjoy making people laugh,
and being fat helps a lot. I am not self-conscious about the
way I look. In fact, I make jokes about it.
Also, when I walk down the street alone at night I feel
safer than a girl with a good figure. Will you please tell my
boy friend, and other guys whose girls are erweight, that
it doesn't bother us as much as they think.
OVERWEIGHT IN CLEVMAND
DEAR OVERWEIGHT: Speak for yourself. I've Mevw
known a fat girl who didn't desperately want a good figure.
Stop rationalizing, and take your boy friend's advice before
you lose a great guy. [P. 8S. That myth about fat girls being
"safer" than girls with good figures is absurd. In faet,
they're not as safe. They can't ran as fast.]
DEAR ABBY: Do you think I'm being unfair to my
husband for refusing to go to bed with him? He hasn't
taken a bath since our son's wedding which was three
years ago last June.
In the 30 years we've been married I can count the
baths he's taken on my fingers. He says I am too "picky."
PICKY IN NEW ORLEANS
DEAR PICKY: Unfair? Hardly. Tell your man, "No
bath, no beddy bye with me, brother!" [P. S. And a little
soft soap wouldn't hart.]

CARROLL FIGHTER'S



from the Carroll Righter Forecast
GENERAL TENDENCIES: You have a
determination now to do things exactly as you
wish and unless you show some consideration for others, you
could get into a difficult situation. Use today to delve into
payments and collections. Make new plans for the future.
ARIES (Mar. 21 to Apr. 19) Obtain advice from an expert
for the data and ideas you need to get ahead faster in business.
Use your intuition when buying clothes and you won't go
wrong. Show more kindness to mate.
TAURUS (Apr. 20 to May 20) By getting your health and
wardrobe improved you become a more charming and
dynamic person. Entertain good friends to whom you owe a
debt and show that you like them. Avoid arguments.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 21) Private affairs you have need
a more worldly approach for best results. You can make a big
hit with the one you love tonight. Courtesy and good manners
are very important at this time.
MOON CHILDREN (June 22 to July 21) More sociability
with those you like and admire brings the right results today.
Think over your finest aims and direct your energies in such
directions. Take time for relaxation.
LEO (July 22 to Aug. 21) If you take time to please
higher-ups, this could lead to more success and support in the
future. Use more practical methods to gain your finest aims.
Use extreme care in travel today.
VIRGO (Aug. 22 to Sept. 22) Making new contacts and
expanding your activities is wise now. Obtain the information
you need at the right sources. Don't jump into any activity
without first being properly prepared.
LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Make sure you discharge
important obligations during the day and you will feel more
free and happy tonight. Your ideas are good and so are your
methods. Evening is fine for entertainment.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Being more cooperative
with others makes it possible for you to gain your aims while
assisting others to do likewise. If you encounter one who likes
to argue, steer clear of this person.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Persevere in your
duties and get them behind you. Cooperate more with
co-workers. Find the right articles of apparel that make you
look more charming. Stay within your budget.
-, rRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 20) Plan to have fun during
spare time but don't neglect important duties that are yours.
Give a helping hand to young people who have problems.
Show that you have quality.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19) Delve into the
fundamental affairs of your life and show that you are a
devoted family member. Avoid frivolity that decreases your
success. Security is important now.
PISCES (Feb. 20 to Mar. 20) If your routines at present do
not suit you, this is a good time to change them for better
ones. Keep appointments with those who can help you in
financial affairs. Relax tonight.
IF YOUR CHILD IS BORN TODAY ... he or she will be
one of those delightful young people who likes to deliberate a
good deal before coming to decisions. This could be a
drawback, so teach' the power of decision early in life. The
religious life is fine here. Give the finest ethical training and
teach work habits at an early age. Politics could also be a fine
outlet here. Spiritual understanding is fine, too.
"The Stars impel, they do not compel." What you make of
your life is largely up to YOU!

Sterling Quant & Ford brothers




pace Colonels to semi-final win

By GLADSTONE THURSTON
BROTHERS WENTY AND EDDIE FORD collaborating with the aggressive rebounding of 6ft.
')ins centre Sterling Quant struck back last night and silenced the Classic Pros 86-78 to take a 2-1
v in in the best of three Paradise League semi-final playoffs..

The Coloneis, playing with a
protest lodged against the Pros,
had little trouble beating them
after opening a ten point lead,
76-66, with seven minutes
remaining in the game.
Sharon Storr, the all
important guard for the Pros,
found himself in early foul
trouble and with thiret
technical fouls lodged against
him in the first half, was

eventually fouled out with five
personal fouls with 2:36
remaining in the game. The
Colonels protested Storr's
playing with three technical
fouls.
Before near 500 paying fans,
excluding a full balcony, the
Colonels ripped off to a fine
start as they held a 15-8 lead in
the first five minutes.
Quant and Keith Smith took
control of the rebounds, and
with Eddie Ford playing a
more superior game than
Tuesday saw the Colonels to a
27-20 lead when Storr picked
up his second technical foul.
Undaunted by their
unfortunate foul condition,
Cleve Rodgers fouled by E.
Ford added a free throw to
start a rally for the Pros. Hallie
Moultrie followed on an
inbound pass moving them to
27. Storr and Golson Bain both
made good stolen balls to tie
the game at 31 all with 5.05
left in the half.
Wenty Ford gave the
Colonels the lead again but
Moultrie taking a defensive
rebound drove the length of
the court to tie again.
The Pros who followed a hot
pace were unable to take the
lead by more than two points
and when they did, the
Colonels rallied back to tie.
With the score tied at 39 all,
Store picked up his third
technical foul. The Colonels
scored the free throw.

seconds of the first half again

Gary Symonette and Cleve
Rodgers held a 47-44 first half
lead.
Holding on at the opening of
the second half the Pros held a
58-52 lead until Quant and
Eddie Ford moved in to tie the
game at 58 all. A lar- violation
on the Pros saw Quant on a
jumper pushing the Pros
behind for the remainder of
the game.
Trying a similar setup used
in the Tuesday night game, the
Pros slowed the ball down
considerably. This gave them
three unanswered field goals
to tie at 66 all at 12.08 and the
Colonels called a time out.
Returning to the court, the
Colonels dumped in six
consecutive field goals moving
78-66. Unable to find an
effective range, the Pros,
following a few missed shots,
had Rodgers and Storr moving
them to 70.
Anthony Bostwick stopped
them with two field goals, at
2:36 when Storr made his exit

add another to his game high of 36.

SCHLITZ DOWN


BLENDERS 4-3
HENRY WILLIAMS' sacrifice fly
into centre field, drove in the
,inning run that broke a three all
tie to give Schlitz Beer a 4-3 victory
over Bahamas Blenders during last
night's baseball game at the Queen
Lli/abeth Sport Centre.
In the second game, Roosevelt
Turner batted in four and scored
two to lead Beck's Bees to a 11-3
slaughter over Paradise Island.
Going into the top of the fifth
innings behind 3-2, Donnie Lee led
the Blenders off with a single past
the right fielder. Trying to reach
third on the misplayed ball, Lee
was picked off by the third
base man.
Shad Rolle came up next with a
base hit. lie advanced to second
and third on pass balls. Paul
Johnson, the losing pitcher,
grounded out but Rolle was in to
score the tying run.
Schiltz failed to score in the
bottom of the iifth and so did the
Blenders in the top of the sixth.
Gordon Farrington, pinch hitting
for Adler Minus, led off the
Heermen as a throwing error by the
second baseman gave him first base.
D. Bartlett on a bunt sacrificed
Farrington to second for the first
out.
An error on Paul Johnson trying
to pick off Farrington at second
saw iarrington advance to third
which brought up Berty Murray.
With the count at one ball and one
strike, Murray was awarded first
having been hit by the pitch.
Fhis set the stage for Henry
Williams whose sacrifice fly gave
the Blenders the edge.
Baseball continues at the Queen
Elizabeth Sports Centre on Friday
when Jet Set take on Paradise
Island and defending champions
Del Jane host Heastie Lumber.

LILLEE SNOWS

POOR FORM ON

2od.TEST EVE
By Ivan Johnson
WITH THE SECOND Test
between the West India and
Australia due to begin tomorrow at
Bridgetown, Barbados the recent
poor. form of Australia's key fast
bowler, Denis Lllee, must be a
pleasing factor in the eyes of the
West Indian batsmen and selectors.
Ullee, 22, regarded as the
world's latest bowler, struck terror
into the hearts of English batsmen
last summer with his lightning
speed and hostility.
At the start of the Australians'
tour of the West Indies, it was
considered by everyone throughout
the West Indies including the great
Gary Sobers that the bowling of
Lillee would be the deciding factor
of the test series.
However, having bowled with a
certain amount of the hostility and
speed which he showed in England
last summer in the Australians' first
game against Jamaica, Lillee has
struggled to reach his best form on
the tour to date.
In the first test played at Sabina
Park, Jamaica last month Lillee
failed to get a wicket for 132 runs.
After the match Australian skipper,
Ian Chappell said he thought Lillee
bowled well and was unlucky not
to pick up one or two wickets.
Lillee's predicament, however,
was further worsened when he
bruised his heel in the tourists
match against the Leeward Islands
last week.
Following this Lillee's
performance on Tuesday against
the West Indies Youth side must
have been disheartening to the
Australians. This was his first game
since bruising his heel and he failed
to impress, operating at half pace
off a considerably shortened run
during the two hour session of play
before lunch. His eight overs
costing 18 runs.
Bob Massie, Lillee's deadly
partner in England last summer
who took 16 wickets at Lords in his
test debut, has also failed to
impress so far on the tour.
Massie has also been hampered
by an illness and injuries early on in
the tour but his performances are
not too surprising. Being a seam
and swing bowler Massie is much
more suited to English climatic
conditions, although given the right
conditions in the West Indies he
could be just as lethal, as he was in
England last summer.
The 6ft. 6ins medium fast Max
Walker from Victoria surprisingly
has been the Australians' most
effective bowler on the tour so far.
In this week's game against the
West Indies Youth side he
continued to show fine form taking
four wickets for 45 runs as the
Australians bowled out the
youngsters for a mere 177.
Therefore it seems that with
neither side possessing any bowlers
capable of bowling out a test side
cricket fans should see several big
scores in tomorrow's test.
The following is the West Indies
side in probable batting order; Roy
Fredericks, Geoffrey Greenidge,
Lawerence Rowe, Rohan Kanhai
(capt.), Alvin Kallicharan, Maurice
Foster, Deryck Murray, Bernard
Julien, Elquemedo Willett, Vanburn
Holder, Lance Gibbs.
The selectors did not consider
Gary Sobers who is presently
recuperating from a knee operation.
