CHICKEN PRICES

UP--SO FARM


BACK IN BUSINESS

THE PRICE Control
Commission has agreed to meet
the demands of chicken farmer
Niven Nutt Jr. to increase his
prices, although he will still not
be able to make a profit, Mr.
Nutt claimed this afternoon.
The Gladstone Farms
operator shut down a week ago
because he said he was unable
to obtain Price Control
permission to increase prices to
meet rising costs.
Mr. Nutt said he had applied
to the Commission in January
in the wake of rising feed
prices because he was
losing 15 cents on every pound
of chicken he sold at his old
price
Mr. Nutt told The Tribune
last Satruday that his wholesale
ice-packed chicken was selling
for 55c a pound and he wanted
to raise it to between 67 and
70 cents a pound.
This afternoon he said he
had received an answer from
the Price Control Commission
by way of a phone call from
Commission secretary Robert
Hall at 11:15 a.m.
A PRICE
"The answer didn't give me
what I asked for, but it did give
me a price at which I can
operate without making a
profit," Mr. Nutt said.
"Prices we got from them
were 67 cents, 69 cents and 74
cents 67 and 69 cents for
whole chicken and 74 cents for
chicken parts." Prices quoted
are wholesale.
He said he would be
recalling his staff as they were
needed and would be back to
full production Monday.
"The price of feed is going
up every day, but I will be able
to operate if I keep to
economy measures and
produce without any great
expansion."
The closure of Gladstone
Farms, the country's largest
chicken producer resulted in a
chicken shortage in a number
of the food store chains and
firms selling "chicken-in-the-
bag" meals.

Murder charges

dropped against

'Snapper' captain

THE SUPREME COURT
trial of "Snapper" charterboat
captain Redford Raymond
Davis, 60, Dunmore Avenue,
Chippingham, ended this
afternoon with Solicitor
General Mr. Langton Hilton
withdrawing charges of murder
and manslaughter against him.
Mr. Hilton, prosecuting for
the Crown, made the decision
after a ruling handed down by
Mr. Justice Samuel Graham in
favour of the accused which
said that the oral and written
statements Davis made to
Assistant Police Super'n-
tendant Fletcher Johnson were
inadmissable.
The trial ended in its third
day and also terminated the
141-day ordeal undergone by
Davis who was accused of
stabbing to death his
30-year-old sweetheart Cleola
Grant at his Chippingham
home. He had been in custody
since October 19 last year.
They had been having a
relationship for three years
until sometime "between
October 18 and 19" when the
incident took place, the court
was told.
Davis was represented during
the trial by attorney Henry
Bostwick who requested Mr.
Justice Graham to instruct the
jury, headed by Mr. George
Turnquest, to return a not
guilty verdict.
He made the request after
the Solicitor General had
informed the court that he did
not intend to lead further
evidence against the accused
following the ruling handed
down in favour of the defence
by the judge.
Mr. Hilton had informed the
court in his opening remarks
Wednesday morning that
"very little is known of what
caused the death of the
deceased except by
conversations with the
accused" who had gone to the
police after taking the body of
his sweetheart to the Out
Patients Department of the
hospital during the early
morning of October 19.
Mr. Bostwick had submitted
that his client did not have a
case to answer following Mr.
Justice Graham's ruling this
morning.
He had charged A.S.P.
Johnson with inducing Davis to
make a statement which
amounted to a confession by
promising him that he would
not be inconveniencedd in
relation to the matter.
His allegations that the
statement that Mr. Johnson
had taken in writing from the
accused as well as an oral
statement the accused had with
him and Sergeant Ingraham
Forde were not voluntarily
made Mr. Justice Graham
dismiss the jury to hear the
evidence of the statements.

Fear Miami Beach -drinking


water is contaminated


MIAMI BEACH, FLA.
(AP)- Hotelmen worried
about the effect on business
Friday after warnings that all
drinking water in this resort
city should be boiled because
of possible contamination.
Dade Country health
director Milton Saslaw
announced Thursday that the
city's water supply apparently
was contaminated because of
malfunctioning chlorinating
machines. Officials were
optimistic the situation would
be resolved by Saturday.
Many vacationers and
residents were settling for
mineral water and drinks
without ice.
"Can you imagine warm
martinis? Well they're drinking
the stuff," said the barman at


one hotel.
A policeman said one hotel
executive expressed fear that
some guests would check out,
and said he had heard that
guests at other hotels were
packing to go.
The hotelmen were not
publicly discussing the
situation.
One stone reported it had
sold out of bottled water, but
customers were begging for
empty jugs which they wanted
to fill in Miami, three miles
away across Biscayne Bay.
Marge Krug, a waitress, said
she wasn't serving water unless
customers asked for it. Then
they got tap water.
The White House ordered
two chlorination pumps flown
to Miami Beach.


and that he would have to
leave the country within seven
days, the FNM spokesman said.

Furhtermore, he added,
"Mr. Smith was told he would
not be allowed to visit the
Bahamas again."
Before the expiration of the
deadline Mr. Smith flew to
Nassau, then to Miami, from
where he took a plane to Turks
Island. His wife and children
are still in Inagua.
NOT VOTER
According to the FNM
statement, Mr. Smith was not a
voter in the last election but
his wife is believed to be an
FNM supporter.
Opposition Leader Kendal
Isaacs has taken up the whole
matter of victimization directly
with Prime Minister Lynden
Pindling in whose portfolio
immigration now comes, The
Tribune was told.
Mrs. Smith has also written
the Prime Minister separately,
it is understood.
Commenting on the most
recent case of political
persecution, the FNM
representative commented that
"this cruel and ungodly
victimization has got to end
and justice must be given to
those who have suffered
including dozens of innocent
Bahamian children, if the unity
and peace of the nation is to be
achieved."
The FNM, he said, has a
moral responsibility to pursue
vigorously the cause of all
those who have been subjected
to inhuman treatment because
of their political allegiance,
"and the party will not rest
until the demands of justice
and Christian charity have been
met."
OTHER CASES
An earlier FNM release made
in January pointed to other
instances of alleged
victimization of Turks
Islanders living at Inagua who
were believed to he
sympathetic to the Opposition.
In a letter of complaint to
FNM headquarters in Nassau a
party supporter at Inagua
claimed that "what is
happening here now is a
disgrace before God and man."
He said that threats had
been made and were being
carried out "in a most cruel
and un-Christian manner.
"Most of the Turks Island
people who are being viciously
uprooted and kicked out of the
country have been living here
for many years. They know no
other home. Most of their
children have been born in the
Bahamas and they have been
given no consideration and
shown no compassion.
"What is happening is that
work permits are being refused
to the husbands and fathers to
work for the salt company and
so they have to take their
families to Turks Island or they
have to leave themselves and
break up the families.
"It is terrible. Inagua needs
people but like this the
population is being decimated.
Those who have not yet had
their work permits refused are
living in fear. Even those who
have formal Bahamian status
are fearful that they too, will
be uprooted after
independence."
The FNM cited the cases of
Donald Harris, Claude
Lightbourn, Hubert Williams,
Henry Henfield and Robert
Lightbourn. All were married
with Bahamian families and
had lived in the Bahamas
anywhere from ten to 20 years.

BAHAMAS COMMONWEALTH BANK CHIEF

HITS OUT AGAINST U.S. INVESTIGATING AGENCY



Canadian LeBlanc slams SEC



for unfair 'trial by Press'

CANADIAN FINANCIER NORMAN P. LeBLANC, among those charged by the SEC in the
$224 million alleged lOS fraud, today broke his silence to roundly condemn the American agency
for its "trial by press" and its "indirect attack" on the Bahamas government for seeking evidence


before seizing certain assets.
The l.ee afternoon
statement came from Mr.
Le B lance's corporate
headquarters in Nassau.
President and controlling
shareholder of Global Holdings
Limited, Mr LeBlanc is
associated with Bahamas
Commonwealth Bank. which is
controlled by Global Holdings
through its interest in
International Bancorp Ltd.
Following is the full text of
Mr. LeBlanc's statement:
As a result of the
continuing assaults
both in the court
and the press made by the
United States Securities and
Exchange Commission (SEC)
against Bahamas
Commonwealth Bank as well as
me personally, I have decided
to cease remaining silent and
seek a public forum to speak
out and protest the efforts by
the SEC to obtain a conviction
by press; I am particularly and
specifically desirous of
answering the audacity of the
most recent accusations of Mr.
Robert Kushner, a staff
attorney for the SEC, relating
to investments in the Bahamas
by Bahamas Commonwealth
Bank.
SCANDALOUS
Although I have been
accused by the SEC of
participating in a "massive
fraud" through the behind the
scenes activities of that agency,
I and my companies have been
coupled in a civil suit which,
through the SEC's continued
release of innuendos, has yet to
support their scandalous
allegations in a court of law.
I submit, however, that the
real and only fraud in this
action is the one perpetrated
by the staff of the SEC against
the defendants, the courts, and
the foreign governments in
their deliberate efforts to
mislead and misrepresent
without being called upon to
substantiate their statements
which, if issued by anyone
other than that agency, would
be grounds for slander and
defamation.
I further submit that the
SEC has acted knowing full
well, at least on the part of the
staff, that they were purposely
misleading the foreign
governments by withholding
material facts known to them,
such as the disposition of the
fund money safely deposited in
major banks throughout the
world, in order to conceal
their true motive of gaining
extraterritorial jurisdiction.
The SEC staff was fully
aware that the IOS mutual
fund holders were not
defrauded of $224 million, yet
they allow this to be
repeatedly reported by the
press.
Their own complaint, which
reads more like a press release
than a legal document indicates
that the "$224 million fraud"
is simply the dollar amount of
the US securities sold during a
period of time without giving
effect to redemptions,
reinvestments in other
securities or remaining cash on
hand.
QUITE SAFE
The SEC knew at the time
of filing their complaint, and
know now, that the IOS
mutual funds have almost $200
million in cash safely deposited
at major banks throughout the
world and that there is no
"missing $100 million
unaccounted for".
The guardedly worded
complaint clearly does not
allege that there was any
personal gain by the
defendants but by using
phrases; such as furthering
"personal interest and
pursuits" has caused such news
headings as "looting swindling
and fraud."
They have charged that $60
million was invested in a shell
Costa Rican company called
Inter-American Capital by the
Fund.of Funds when they were
fully aware that this was not


more than a national, propriety
fund similar to objectives
pursued by lOS in France,


Italy, Australia, Sweden and
other countries throughout the
world. Indeed even the name
Fund oft 1unds indicates that it
will invest in other funds. It is
clear that the only reason that
Inter-American is attacked is
because Costa Rica is a true
democracy with respect for
due process of law and
therefore would not respond to
SEC(' demands to take action
without proof of the
allegations.
NO JUSTICE('
There is no justice when
SEC representatives such as
Robert Kushner enters a
courtroom and declares as in
the Washington Post March 8,
1973 "the commission has
been receiving reports of
investments of large amounts
of money in the Bahamas by
(Vesco controlled) Bahamas
Commonwealth Bank" or,
"been receiving reports of
investments in Costa Rican
coffee plantations and the
like".
The SEC is fully aware that
any current activities of this
bank would of necessity not
involve any fund money since
those moneys have been frozen
by the SECIX action.
A just society would not
allow this vicious slander, nor
would it allow articles in
journals such as Fortune
entitled "The Looting of lOS".
It is time that silence is broken
and steps are taken such that
unwarranted influence in
foreign fields are thwarted,
truth and justice prevail and
slander and maliciousness
without a fair opportunity to
be heard are stopped.
MISLEADING
These misleading statements
which are also an indirect
attack on the Bahamian
Government results from the
request by the Bahamas to be
supplied evidence of the SEC
allegation before acquiesicing
to the SEC demands to seize
assets in the Bahamas.
It is ironic that Mr. Kushner
personally was the individual
who flew to the Bahamas and
made the demands and who
has not been able to supply
such evidence.
It is satisfying to note that
the Honourable Charles
Stewart had the same difficulty
when the SEC Commission
made an unprecedented court
appearance to argue for a
restraining order on November
29, 1972, was responded to by
Judge Stewart "I didn't mean
to suggest that you hadn't
done a proper job. I was just
stating the obvious fact that I
haven't seen support for the
allegations".
I question seriously the
responsibility of a system that
permits Mr. Kushner and his
fellow staff functionaries to
question business judgments of
foreign corporations, and using
the stability of sovereign
countries such as Costa Rica,
the Bahamas and others as the
focal point of their attack on
their own citizens and foreign
nationals alike, at a time when
one of the most series
monetary crisis revolving
around the confidence of the
world financial community in
the U.S. Dollar is occurring.
WHAT PROTECTION
What mechanisms exist for
businessmen like myself to
protect themselves against the
seemingly awesome power of a
U.S. government agency whose
unabated powers far exceed
that of the U.S. Supreme
Court. These are not just in my
views but are fully confirmed
by the conclusions reached in
the Advisory Committee on
Enforcement Policies and
submitted to the SEC
Commission, on June 1, 1972,
and prepared by such
knowledgeable authorities as
John Wells, Manuel Cohen and
Ralph Demmler.
It is clear from their report
that they recognized the abuse
of discretionary authority by
the SEC enforcement staff.
They recommended procedures


to audit and police these
abuses. The SEC response is


their press release of
September 27, 1972,
effectively states that they did
not feel it is in the "public
interest" to allow persons
under attack or investigation to
be given an opportunity to tell
their side of the case prior to
authorizing legal enforcement
actions.
It is inconceivable that the
U.S. Congress or Senate would
continue to tolerate this brazen
disregard of a persons' rights,
particularly in light of such an
authorative report.
If the purpose of the SEC is
to protect the small investor
and fundholder its
administration and direction
must be changed. This agency
was developed under concepts
and traditions that reflected
what the world once felt was in
the spirit of freedom, liberty

VESCO PROTESTS

'MOST CRUEL

PERSECUTIONS'
SAN JOSE, COSTA RICA
(AP) U.S. businessman
Robert Vesco said the Federal
Securities and Exchange
Commission launched "the
most cruel of persecutions"
against him because he invested
in underdeveloped countries
instead of large U.S.
companies.
In his first public defense
here of his activities, Vesco
said Tuesday that the
investment of capital in
developing countries such as
Costa Rica has contributed to
his being the principal target of
attacks in the United States.
"That is why the SEC
unleashed the most cruel of
persecutions against me, my
colleagues and companies with
which we were connected",
Vesco said. "They pretend that
i have misused funds
administered by the mutual
funds because I have tried,
instead of continuing to
finance large North American
companies with money
collected in underdeveloped
countries, to invest those funds
in property, companies and
healthy securities in poor
countries that need this help so
much."
"I want to clarify that
during the time I worked with
mutual funds I did not take
one cent out of Costa Rica or
any neighboring countries,"
he said.
Vesco said his lawyers and
his conscience tell him he will
win SEC legal proceedings
against him. The SEC named
Vesco in the disappearance of
more than 224 million dollars
in mutual fund investments.
Reports that he loaned more
than two million dollars to a
company founded by President
Jose Figures and would be
granted Costa Rican citizenship
stirred up a local controversy.
A congressional committee
was named to investigate
Vesco's activities here and
abroad and 20 congressmen
recently went to New York,
Washington and The Bahamas
as part of that investigation.

LOS ANGELES (AP)--A former adviser to Presidents Kennedy and
Johnson. McGeorge Bundy, may take the stand today at the Pentagon
Papers trial in Los Angeles. But first. CI analyst Samuel Adams returns as a
witness. He told jurors yesterday that the government tried to prevent him
from testifying for the defense.
Adams' testimony opened a legal dispute between defense and
prosecution attorneys. Government objections and a court ruling prevented

FLIGHTS INTO FRANCE AT VERY LOW LEVEL
PARIS (AP)--Traffic at Orly and Le Bourget airports continued at an
extremely low level Friday as a strike of civilian air controllers went into
its 18th day.
Only eight foreign airlines maintained their flights into Paris. IWA, Pan
American., Swissair, Tunis Air, Royal Air Morocco, Air Algeria, Iran Air
and Middle East airlines all had planes moving into Orly. Air France, which
has been almost completely shut down sent out flights to Tokyo and New
York.
Pilots of many lines have stopped flying to France because of a lack of
confidence in the military air controllers who have been called in to replace
Sthe striking civilians.
Eight representatives of the British Transport Ministry and the British
SPilots Organization arrived at Le Bourget Friday aboard a Royal Air Force
plane. They will meet with officials from the Civil Aviation Secretariat and
air force to discuss a possible resumption of British flights to France.
MINES IN HAIPHONG CHANNEL INERT?
WASHINGTON (AP)--U.S. minesweeping helicopters have failed so far
to explode any mines in the Haiphong ship channel, the Defense
Department said Thursday.
Defense spokesman Jerry W. Freldheim told newsmen some of the mir-s
laid by U.S. aircraft last year have apparently become inert.
"We assume they've gone dead," Friedhelm said.
Many of the mines placed in the approaches to Haiphong, six other
North Vietnamese ports and inland waterways carried timing devices and
went dead after a set period of time. During the months of intensified U.S.
bombing of North Vietnam, U.S. navy planes repeatedly laid fresh mines to
keep the ports closed to Communist shipping.
U.S. helicopters, towing devices designed to detonate magnetic, acoustic
and pressure mines, have been working in the Haiphong ship channel since
Tuesday. They actually started sweeping last week, but broke off the
operation after one day when a snarl developed over release of U.S. war
.. prisoners by North Vietnam.
Friedheim said that several thousand mines were laid in the approaches
Sto the seven ports and the inland waterways. He estimated that perhaps

YEAR EXTENSION OF WAGES PRICES CONTROL APPROVED
WASHINGTON (AP)- The Senate banking committee Thursday
approved a one-year extension of President Nixon's power to control wages
and prices but rejected moves to make phase 3 tougher.
d The committee defeated on tie votes amendments to impose rent
controls in metropolitan areas and to return to the kind of mandatory
wage-price control system Nixon abandoned on Jan. I1.
But Sen. William Proxmire, D-Wis., and Sen. Harrison Williams, D-N.J.,
plan to push these two amendments when the bill to extend the Economic
SStabilization Act to April 30, 1974 is up for floor action.
The committee voted to give the President power to ration petroleum
Products. Earlier in the week, the Nixon administration reimposed
mandatory controls on the nation's largest oil companies.
In addition, the committee approved an amendment that would require
Corporations to make public the same information on price increases that
t hey submit to the Cost of Living Council. "the ain would be to expose the
SInformation to the public in hopes that his would restrain price boosts.
The committee also raised the wage exemption front $2.75 to $3.50 an
hour. Those earning below this amount would not be subject to the 5.5 per
cent a year wage guideline.
The panel approved an amendment by Sen. Adlal Stevenson. D-Ill., that
would require Nixon to report every three months on what action he has
^ taken to keep food prices down.

terror bombings

By Ed Blanche
LONDON (AP)- Prime Minister Edward Heath called in
security chiefs Friday to plan what was widely expected to be the
biggest roundup of Irish terrorists and their sympathizers ever
conducted in Britain.


Police meanwhile warned
Londoners to keep their eyes
open for signs of more car
bombs in the terror wave that
killed one man Thursday,
wounded 243 people and
caused the most extensive
damage in the British capital
since the World War II blitz.
"The alert is very much still
on," a police spokesman said.
We very much hope that this
is not the start of a bomb
campaign in London and just a
one day thing," he added.
Police continued questioning
seven men and three women
detained at London Heathrow
Airport Thursday where they
were awaiting planes to
Ireland. In Belfast, sources in
the provisional wing of the
outlawed Irish Republican
Army (IRA) admitted
responsibility for the London
bomb wave and claimed eight
members of their terrorist team
had returned safely to Ireland.
PRECAUTIONS
Heath called in Home
Secretary Robert Carr and
other top officials responsible
for British security. Sources at
his office, No. 10 Downing St.,
said the government was
determined to demonstrate its
firm resolve to prevent a
recurrence of Thursday's terror
attacks. The sources said the
utmost precautions would be
taken.
Two powerful bombs,
apparently planted in cars,
exploded outside the Old
Bailey courthouse and
government offices in
Whitehall on Thursday,
wounding scores of persons,
wrecking offices and turning
cars over on their sides.
A man in his 60s died of
blast wounds in a hospital
later.
At Old Bailey, a police
spokesman said: "Ther arare in
excess of 150 casualties."
Firemen at Whitehall reported
14 casualties there.
Old Bailey is more than a
mile from Whitehall.
Bombs also were found and
defused at Scotland Yard and
near the headquarters of the
Conservative and Labour
parties in the area of
Westminister.
IRA WORK
Police sources said the
bombings appeared to be the
work of the nationalistic
provisional wing of the IRA in
connection with a referendum
in Northern Ireland on uniting
with the Irish Republic.
Scotland Yard reported it
picked up seven men and three
women at Heathrow Airport
for questioning "as a result of a
check on outward flights." It
gave no details but informants
said the checks were made on
flights heading for Ireland.
On the sloping street in
front of the Old Bailey, a badly
injured man was eased gently
from the wreckage of his auto:
a newsman dragged another
victim, who was bleeding
profusely, from the torrent of
water gushing out of a
shattered pipe.
Across the road, every pane
of glass in the front of a tall
office building was broken,
covering typists with shards as
they worked. Trails of blood
spattered the offices.
The block was deserted
within seconds. Most
employees did not even pause
long enough to grab their
belongings.
Dozens of the Old Bailey
casualties were taken to St.


Bartholomew's hospital
nearby. Their arrival turned the
casualty ward into something.
looking like a battle station.
DIED ON FLOOR
Bleeding victims waited
patiently for doctors to tend
them.
The only fatality of the
blast, an un-named man in his
sixties, died in the hospital's
casualty department.
A young doctor said: "He
had a severe head injury and
was being given a major
operation virtually on the floor
of the ward when his heart
stopped. He was given exterior
heart massage and surgeons
went on with the operation -
boring a hole in his skull to
receive pressure on the brain -
but it was too late."
One of the seriously injured
was another elderly man seen
outside the court by police
detective inspector Harry
Clements. "The poor old boy
had bones sticking out
everywhere," Clements
said. The explosion near an
army recruiting office off
Whitehall caused fewer
casualties and less damage.
It blew out hundreds of
windows and sent sightseers in
Trafalgar Square
Trafalgar Square and outside
the Horse Guards Barracks
fleeing in panic.
The car bomb had been left
just outside the "Duke of
Clarence" pub where lunch
time drinkers were lifting a
final glass before the 3 p.m.
closing time.
EYE-WITNESS
Sidewalk artist Charles
Pearce, 70, watched it all from
his pitch in the square.
"I saw a flash of light come
out of the street then a huge
bang and a mushrooming cloud
of smoke," he said. "I rushed
down there. A few people
were bleeding and the car with
the bomb was in flames. The
police were on the scene very
quickly and wouldn't let
anyone near after a bit."
At both the Old Baily and
Whitehall, more bombs
were rumoured to have been
planted and the areas were
sealed off by police cordons. -
Among the buildings
damaged at Whitehall was the
Ministry of Agriculture and the
Whitehall Theatre where
"Pajama Tops", London's
long-running Nude revue is on.

Hospital workers

resume strike amid

U.K. travel chaos

LONDON (AP)--Hospital
workers who broke their strike to
aid scores of victims injured in
London bomb blasts resumed their
stoppage Friday as industrial strife
disrupted Britain.
A spokesman for St.
Bartholomew's Hospital, 100 yards
from the Old Bailey criminal court
where a large terrorist bomb blast
Thursday killed one man and
wounded more than 200 persons,
said the hospital's ancillary staff
reacted 'magnificiently' to the
emergency.
But the workers, whose tasks
include laundering bed linen,
cooking and serving meals and
acting as orderlies, stopped work
again as soon as the emergency
ended, the spokesman said.
Hospitals throughout the
country reported having to destroy
thousands of dollars worth of
fouled linen as laundries stayed
shut.
British Rail reported chaos in
many regions in the wake of
Thursday's nationwide strike by
29,000 train drivers. London was
cut down to a third of its normal
supply of commuter trains.


ON REFERENDUM splits ICCS


BELFAST, NORTHERN
IRELAND (AP) Bombs
shattered yet more of Belfast
and Londonderry on Thursday
while Northern Ireland voted
in its "British-or-Irish"
Referendum.
Six bombs hit Belfast, the
provincial capital, and five hit
Londonderry, the second city.
They wrecked stores,
supermarkets and one of
Belfast's best known hotels,
the Midland, on the city's
north side.
Yet so hardened is the
province by the Irish
Republican Army's guerrilla
campaign that 11 bombings
here caused far less emotion
locally than the two which hit
London.
The Northern Ireland voting
went on according to
predictable patterns amid the
bombings and occasional
shootouts between the British
army and IRA guerrillas.
Reports from the 338
closely guarded polling stations
were exactly as expected. The
Protestant majority was
plumping for continued links
with Britain; the Roman
Catholic minority was, for the
most part, staying at home.
Northern Ireland security
chiefs were as certain as they
could possibly be that the
London bombing was the work
of the provisional nationalist
wing of the Irish Republican
Army, which has been fighting
to merge Northern Ireland into
mainly Catholic Ireland.
No one had at this stage
admitted responsibility for the
London bombings. Provo
chiefs in Belfast have long been
underground and out of
contact with newsmen.
Several factors, however,
pointed toward the
provisionals as the source of
the London blasts. First was
the type of bomb a
combination of farm chemicals
triggered by gelignite and
planted in parked cars. Second
was the warning, typical of the
provisionals, intended to clear
the neighboring buildings. In
London, as in Belfast last July,
the warning time was
apparently underestimated and
civilians were still in range of
the explosion.
In Londonderry, young girls
helped in the planting of at
least two of the five bombs
which hit that much-bombed
city. Their involvement
underlined the recent arrest of
four young women under
Northern Ireland's special
powers of detention without
trial.
One of the Belfast bombs
was heaved out of a
commercial building by army
experts using a device like a
massive fishing reel.
The reaction in Northern
Ireland to the London
bombing was the sort of grim
realization that what has been
going on here is now being
brought home to the British
public and government.
In the referendum, the
1,030,000 voters in the
province were asked two
questions:
"Do you want Northern
Ireland to remain part of the
United Kingdom?"
"Do you want Northern
Ireland to be joined with the
Republic of Ireland outside the
United Kingdom?"
As polling drew to a close, it
was cl dear that the only issue
would be how many of the
Catholic minority had voted
for a United Ireland and how
many of the Protestant
majority had stirred themselves
jo vote anti-Ireland


Vietnam commission

By Edith M. Lederer
SAIGON (AP)-The split that seemed inevitable has developed
in the International Commission of Control and Supervision, a
watchdog for the Vietnam cease-fire.


An informant familiar with
Commission procedures gave
this outline Thursday:
Polish and Hungarian
delegates are operating on the
theory that the Communists
won the war and the winner
can claim "the fruits of
victory."
Canadians and
Indonesians are operating on
the theory that there were no
winners or losers in the 10-year
conflict and therefore
nobody has any claim to spoils.
The result has been an
East-West standoff on virtually
all crucial issues. The
Commission operates on the
rule or unanimity. If there is
no agreement, a delegation
may submit a minority report.
By this account, the ICCS
has developed "some
symptoms of the same disease"
that killed the effectiveness of
its predecessor the old
International Control
Commission which has
tentatively suspended
operations in Vietnam after 18
years.
But one source said it's still
too early to tell whether the
symptoms in the new ICCS will
produce the same malady that
destroyed the effectiveness of
the older group, but the
prognosis appears guarded.
"We have no problems when
there are no issues," said an
ICCS source. "Usually there
are no arguments on the
standard of living we should
have here and the rights,
immunities and privileges."
UNHAPPY
The Indonesians and
Canadians are particularly
unhappy about the
Commission's refusal to
investigate a U.S. and South
Vietnamese complaint that the
North Vietnamese installed
three new missile sites at Khe
Sanh after the cease-fire. Two
votes on the issue split on
East-West lines.
They are also unhappy
about Polish and Hungarian
attempts to shelve a unanimous
report on fighting at the
coastal port of Sa Huynh last
month.
The only ICCS investigation
which has been unanimously
approved and sent to the
four-party joint Military
Commission involved a
rock-throwing demonstration
at Hue which injured North
Vietnamese representatives to
the Military Commission.
Several hundred persons
attacked the North Vietnamese
compound in Hue on Feb. 25.
A similar rock-throwing
incident took place the same
day in Da Nang.
The North Vietnamese
temporarily withdrew their
delegations from both cities
last Friday, claiming they had
inadequate security and poor
accommodations.
In its unanimous report, the
ICCS said every member of the
Commission is responsible for
the security of every other
member.
Western sources say the
Communist members of the
ICCS appear to be using a
double standard approving
investigations which will make
their cause look good and
disapproving those that might
make the North Vietnamese
and Viet Cong look bad.


Squabbling within the
Military Commission,
composed of the four parties
that signed the Paris agreement
the United States South
Vietnamese, North Vietnamese
and Viet Cong has also
hampered ICCS operations.
DIFFICULT
ICCS teams were in the field
first. Military Commission
teams are still not fully
deployed particularly North
Vietnamese and Viet Cong
representatives.
The absence of some
Military Commission teams and
the North Vietnamese pullout
from Da Nang and Hue
"obviously makes things more
difficult for the ICCS," sources
close to that group said. One
observed: "The onus is on the
parties to make this agreement
work. If the parties can't agree,
there's little the ICCS can do
except find them in violation
of certain articles and say they
should cooperate. It's a matter
of good will and good faith."
One suggestion growing out
of this is that major powers
should encourage both sides in
greater cooperation, to
discourage any continuation of
the war.


NEW IRISH PM

& HEATH END


SECRET TALKS
LONDON (AP)-Liam Cosgrave,
Ireland's newly elected Prime
Minister, wound up two days of
secret talks with British leader
Friday, examining security issues
and possibilities of Dublin-London
cooperation against terrorists.
Prime Minister Edward
Heath's office said defense
secretary Lord Carrington had been
called into the meetings to discuss
security problems.
Although these were not defined,
qualified sources said they included
the future role of British forces in
Northern Ireland, cross-border
cooperation, and action to defeat
such outlawed organizations as the
Irish Republican Army.
Cosgrave was accompanied in the
talks by the leader of the Labour
Party in Ireland, Brendan Cirish,
who will be Deputy Prime Minister
in the new Dublin coalition
government. Alongside Heath were
foreigri Secretary Sir Alec
Douglas-Home and Lord
Carrington.
The windup communique said in
part: "The discussions, which were
confidential, covered a wide range
of matters of common interest
including the situation in Northern
Ireland, security issues, and joint
interests in the Eur.pean
communities."
More specifically, informants
said, this work programme included
a detailed discussion of the way the
British are shaping up a new policy
statement on the future of their
embattled province. A government
white paper, spelling out the new
policy, is expected to be published
around March 24 first
anniversary of the imposition of
direct rule from London.
The Irish Prime Minister-elect has
been pressing for joint
Dublin-London management of
Northern Ireland's foreign policy,
defense arrangements, security, and
financial affairs.
In particular, Cosgrave and his
Labour Party partners favour
guaranteed arrangements for power
sharing between the Protestant
majority and the Roman Catholic

By ETIENNE DUPUCH
GOVERNMENT has now admitted for the first time that it
was "misled" by Nassau Towing Company concerning the power
capacity of its tugs Marguerite and Diedre to handle large ships in
Nassau harbour.
Were they really "misled" or was it that they didn't know what
they were doing and allowed their prejudices to overbalance their
judgment in making a contract?
If they were misled then this might be considered a breach of
contract so that they should not have been obliged to go on
paying money to the company under the contract. So far this
mistake has cost the Treasury $1,193,093.
They now say that they are making an effort to renegotiate the
contract with Nassau Towing, a Belgian o"-.-1 company. This
must mean that they are still paying out pu1 oney under the
contract.
The Tribune disclosed on October 4, 1969 that the
Government was at that time trying to renegotiate the tug
contract.
On December 19, 1969 over three years ago former PLP
Transport Minister Warren Levarity, who was dismissed three
months earlier by the Prime Minister,claimed in the House that he
had "forced" Nassau Towing to renegotiate the contract with the
Government.
During the regime of his successor, Dr. Doris Johnson, there
seems to have been many blunders. It was during this period that
the owners of Bahamas Airways withdrew from the Bahamas
and interisland air transport was given a serious setback. There
are still questions to be answered about over expenditure on the
construction of the .new Post Office, and also on reports
surrounding the handling of treasure recovered from a Spanish
ship in Bahamian waters.
In 1970 Mr. Levarity called on Dr. Johnson to resign because
of the "complete incompetence and improper procedure" she
displayed in her handling of the contract between Government
and the big boat owners.
SIn the new PLP Government, formed after the September 19th
"-election, Dr. Johnson was dropped from the Cabinet. Her place as
Minister of Transport was given to young Darrel Rolle, the new
member for Mangrove Cay who was elected for that district
following the death of the Hon. Clarence Bain.
For the first time Mr. Rolle has given the truth to the public in
a frank and honest statement on the situation. It is refreshing to
have a statement of this kind for a change from a member of
Government.
I have never met this young man but I have studied his picture.
His face has character in it. High cheek bones usually indicate
strength of character, for good or for ill. All the reports coming
out of the Ministry about this young man so far have been good.
It is said by people near to him that he tries to be fair and
straightforward. This is a good start for a young man.

Where the Government went wrong in giving this contract to a
Belgian company was as a result of the Government's
discrimination against anyone who is not in their camp, especially
if the person happens to be white.
With all its talk about Bahamianization, the Government has
given contracts to foreign companies rather than awarding them
to qualified Bahamians who are members of the Opposition.
This is what happened in the case of the tug contract. Bahamas
Towing, a white UBP company, had long performed tug services
in Nassau harbour. They knew the requirements of shipping
entering this harbour and they were capable of handling it. But
Government would not deal with this genuine Bahamian
company. Instead, they went all the way to Belgium, made
arrangements with a company there, and got the colony tied up
in a bad contract.
Now they are trying to wriggle out of it.

For years after the PLP took over the Government they
blamed everything that went wrong in the country on the UBP or
the Bay Street Boys.
The honest statement by Mr. Rolle was completely in contrast
to a statement made on the tug situation on the floor of the
House on December 18, 1970 by Minister of Finance Carlton
Francis.
Mr. Francis blamed the failure of the Belgian operation on the
fact that the Government did not give the Belgians a monopoly of
the harbour work.
They apparently didn't take this action because they must have
felt that the Belgian company would squeeze out the Bahamian
operation. When this failed Mr. Francis fell back on another
cliche often used by coloured people when they fail ... they
always cry favouritism and discrimination.
In his December 1970 statement he charged that the shipping
agents who were responsible for engaging the tugs were more
sympathetic with the old company, "and that's the way the jobs
go," Mr. Francis said.

This is all so much poppy-cock. The local agents to whom Mr.
SFrancis alluded dealt with the Bahamian company because they
felt that they were better qualified to handle the work.
This statement by Mr. Francis is an indirect admission that the
SBahamian company is as good, if not better, than the Belgian
company.
If this is so ... why did the Government discriminate against a
SBahamian company?
"Discrimination" has always been the ugly word used by the
PLP crowd to describe anything that didn't go the way they
Wanted it to go. In many cases, this was only a weak excuse for
inefficiency and failure. In the tug situation this was a clear case
of discrimination against a company owned by a white UBP
group by the black PLP Governraent.
Shame on you, fellows. But there is still some hope when a
m .-ember of this group has the courage to make an honest public
statement on a situation that has been greatly confused by
Government double-talk in the past.

'A move for a Free Abaco'


examined in Atlanta paper


UNDER the heading "A
Move for a Free Abaco",
editorial writer John Crown
examines the position of
Abaco in an independent
Bahamas. His article was
published in the Atlanta
Journal on March 5.
Following is the article:
A Move for a Free Abaco
By JOHN CROWN
ABACO ISLAND. Who has
ever heard of it? I certainly
never had until I received a
telephone call from a friend
last week suggesting that I
meet a visitor from Abaco.
Although Abaco may not
now be exactly a household
word in the United States,
there is potential for it
becoming just that during the
current year. Whether it does
or not depends upon
forthcoming events.
Abaco Island is the
northeast island of some 400
islands that make up the
Bahama Islands. And as just
about everyone should know,
the Bahama Islands lie just east
of Florida and just north of
Cuba.
If all goes as is currently
scheduled, on July 10 the
Bahama Islands will be given
her independence from the
United Kingdom and will take
her place as a sovereign
country in the world,
remaining, presumably, within
the British Commonwealth.
All of this seems sufficiently
tranquil not to cause any
worry.
But the catch is that the

$200 DRUGS FINE
A WILLIAMS Lane youth,
who was arrested by two police
officers after he ran away from
them, was fined $200
Thursday morning by
Magistrate Emmanuel
Osadebay for possessing
marijuana.
Roger Tyrone Tumquest,
18, of Williams Lane pleaded
guilty to the charge.
He was arrested at 12:05
Thursday morning after he was
approached by two police
officers on Kemp Road. Also
given a two months sentence
should he fail to pay his fine,
Turnquest "had enough
marijuana for two cigarettes,"
Inspector Okell Cartwright told
the court.


people on Abaco Island fear
the tendencies exhibited by the
government in New
Providence. And so the
residents of Abaco have no
wish to be part and parcel of
aln independent Bahama
nation.
And so there is potential for
conflict right on our own
doorstep, a potential which we
cannot ignore and which we
should be thinking about in
terms of alternative courses of
action
IN A SENSE there are
historic ties between Abaco
and the United States. Ahaco
was settled by persons from
the Carolinas and their slaves
- who continued to pledge
their allegiance to King George
III after our founding fathers
successfully separated us from
Britain. The current residents
of Abaco are the descendents
of these early settlers.
As one observer has noted,
the population of the Bahamas
could be called 15 per cent
black, 5 per cent white and the
remaining 80 per cent is
somewhere in between the
two.
And so in Ahaco and the
Bahamas the whites and the
blacks and the mixed have
worked together over the
decades, with loyalty to the
British crown a unifying tie.
With independence
approaching that unifying tic
is becoming unraveled and
there is trouble aplenty within
the islands.
THE MAN I MET last week
is E. W. 1. "Eric" Watkins, a
member of the Bahamas'
Parliament, representing the
Marsh Harbour Constituency
on Abaco.
He is a big strapping man,
one of those who is between
black and white, lie seems to
have built-in perpetual energy.
He isa convincing speaker and
he is the type who inspires
confidence.
Eric Watkins once worked as
valet to the late Duke of


Windsor when the former king
was governor of the Bahamas.
He served in the British army,
joined the Bahamas' police
force as a constable and in time
worked his way up to chief
inspector of police and later
assistant superintendent. All
the while he attended law
school at night at the
University of the West Indies.
Hie resigned from the police
and helped organize the Free
National Movement which is
the opposition political party
within the Bahamas. This past
September he was re-elected to
parliament by a margin of 75
per cent.

Government persuaded a majority of the Bahamian people to
blame the UBP or the Bay Street Boys for anything that went
wrong in the country after they won control of the Government
in January 1967.
One of the items they blamed on these groups was the steady
increase in the cost of living since they took over in 1967. They
did this to cover up the fact that these increases were the direct
result of spreading incompetence and rising Government import
taxes, greatly increased cost of licences and house and business
taxes.

An interesting thing happened recently when the Bahamas
Hotel Employees Association demanded a 5.8 per cent increase in
the wages of all hotel employees to meet the rising cost of living.
One "angle" to their demand was to cover increases in the cost
of living for the worker with the introduction of National
Insurance and "other things", such as revised tariffs on imports,
"after Independence Day, July 10th".

That's funny. The people were led to believe that
independence would bring great benefits to our people. Mr.
Pindling declared that, from where he sat, he could see great
advantages for the Bahamian people in independence.
Recently Mr. Pindling admitted that he found that a Consulate
General establishment in New York would be a costly business.
Apparently he didn't see this possibility from where he sat when
he made that public statement ... nor, then, could he have seen
that independence would most certainly be reflected in greater
increases in the already high cost of living in the Bahamas.

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY
They be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the
blind, both shall fall into the ditch.

Let's start with the
adorable Chihuahua.
You might demand to
buy him if you came into
Nassau Pet Centre. And
we can understand why.
Like all our puppies, he
comes from a long line
of purebreds. He's in
perfect health. He
has his puppy shots.
He's bright-eyed and
Eager.
CHIHUAHUA A BORN COMEDIAN

And just to make you feel even more
disappointed, we'd like to point out that
like all Chihuahuas, he's a born come-
dian. Clowning is his specialty. (He's
also an exceptionally bright breed who
can master important lessons like house-
breaking quickly.)
WHY YOU CAN'T HAVE HIM
All you have to do is come into Nassau
Pet Centre and tell us you want him
for your four little children. We'll turn
you down flat.
A fragile Chihuahua simply couldn't
stand up to the rough play of four per-
fectly normal children. (When full
grown he'll weigh all of 5 pounds.) If
you have lots of young kids, you need
one of our larger, more robust breeds.
Or, take this appealing Irish Setter. He'll
grow large enough. And he's so cute,
you'd probably pick him
S up and hug him when
you meet him. But if
you're an apartment
dweller we'll tell
you to hug some
other puppy.
Irish Set
tern are ba-
sically outdoor
dogs who prefer
lots of wide open
spaces.

SNAP, AND OTHER ANIMALS


BRIDGE players tend to
treat new conventions rather
like pets. They are made a
great fuss of initially, shown
around proudly on all possible
occasions, but eventually have
to be treated with some degree
of firmness lest they get out
of hand.
In recent years, much has
been done to allow a
partnership to drop the bidding
early, especially after one
partner has made an initial
pass. There is, for example, all
the difference between the
sequence which goes: I Club
by South as dealer, followed
by a reply of I Heart by North;
and the sequence which begins
with a pass by North as dealer,
a I Club opening by South,
and the same I Heart by North
on his next turn. The first
sequence is 100% forcing; the
second can be passed if South
sees no prospects of game.
These days, with very few'
exceptions, the popular
bidding systems allow you to
pass your partner's bid if he
has already passed at his first
turn. Here are some examples:

the strength required to raise

2-level; some say 9 points,
while some are content to
make the same bid with 7

example shown above, East,
hearing the 2 D response,
knows that West's Hearts

warrant immediate Heart
support. How does he know?

If West opens I Club, it is
likely that the partnership will
end in 3NT, with excellent
prospects. But if West passes as
dealer, he is soon under some
strain. When East's 1 Spade
comes round to him, he can't
very well respond 2 Clubs,
since he might be left to play it
there, and he is too strong; nor
can he very well support
Spades at any high level, since
East might only have a 4-card
suit. The answer is to make a
jump shift to 3 Clubs, which
East will treat as a one-round
force. East now converts
happily to 3NT, which West
passes.
Let's look now at a
competitive auction, where a
passed hand becomes
immeasurably stronger in the
light of the bidding:

Some players may think
they are bidding up very
daringly if they venture 3
Spades in that situation. They
should realise not only that the
bidding has disclosed what S. J.
Simon used to call a 'miracle of
fit', but also that East is
unaware that any playing
strength at all lies opposite.
Bearing these two factors in
mind, West should go straight
to 4 Spades,- and expect to
make it before even seeing the
dummy.
Finally, a look at S.N.A.P.
The initials stand for Strong
No-trump After Passing, and it
is one of the most useful
conventions to be introduced
into the game. It has two main
virtues: it protects the light
third-in-hand opening when the
passed partner has between 10
and 12 points, and where
hitherto he would leap to 2NT;
and also does away with the
awkward situation where the
opener would like to bid again,
but doesn't want to get his
fingers burned. The passed
partner is required to have
between 10 and 12 points and
a reasonably balanced hand to
respond INT to the opening
bid. Here are two examples of
the convention in action:
10954 842
J 106 KQ752
KQ32 18
KJ2 A Q 10
After a pass by West, Eas.
bids I Hearts. The INT
response tells him that a
stoutish hand lies opposite but
he obviously nourishes no
further ambitions. In the past,
West would be left to stew in
2NT ("I had 10 points,
partner") which is twice as
hard as INT here.
AQIO KJ3
K5 A10982
Q1087 J94
985 AK


A pass by West is followed
by 1 Heart from East. When'
West comes back with lNT,
East knows that a minimum of
25 points are contained in the
two hands, and shoots 3NT
with every confidence.

industrial goods posted the sharpest rise in 22 years last month, and
President Nixon's chief economic adviser warned Thursday against "an
inflationary boom."
The rise of 1.9 per cent in the wholesale price Index, steepest monthly
hike since the early Korean war year of 1951, indicated continued trouble
for Nixon's phase 3 wale-price controls.
Herthert Stein, chairman of the President's Council of Econolic
Advisers, said the big increase "emphasize the need to keep the very steDng
economic expansion now under way from turning into an inflatioaMry
boom."
The February price jump included the third straight large monthly
increase for farm products and processed foods. Wholesale prices of these
items would increase by more than half If the rise continued at the smn
months their seasonally adjusted annual rate of increase was 30.8 per seat
and in the past three months 56 per cent, the Bureau of Labour Statistics
report said.

ST. JOHN'S. ANTIGUA (AP) Prince Charles, heir to the British throne

today, but did not come ashore.
The HMS Minerva on which he is training as sub-lieutenant with the
Koyal Navy, anchored in the harbour. The raince of Wales did not come
ashore, a government spokesman said, because no official arrangements had
been made.
The Minerva came to Antigua from Montserrat where Prince Charles
went ashore briefly.
The ship arrived in St. John's shortly after midday unannounced and
was almost unobserved. A spokesman added the vessel was due to visit St.

Defence objects to evidence of ASPISHOP TEACHERS
TO TRAU VIEWS


Fletcher Johnson in murder trial
THE SUPREicr. utuURT trial of charter boat captain Kedtord Raymond Davis, (60), of
Dunmore Avenue, Chippingham continued Thursday with an inquiry being conducted into the
admissibility of statements allegedly made by him to the police. The inquiry is being heard in the
absence of the jury.


Davis, represented by J.
Henry Bostwick, is accused
of the murder and
manslaughter of his 30-year-old
sweetheart Cleola Grant

LENTEK TEA TO

HAVING YOUR TONSILS
out in Germany might not
seem a matter of great import.
But to William Rahming,
presently studying with a
scholarship supplied by the
Bahama? Music Society at the
Munich State Academy of
Music, it might make the
difference between completing
his present year of studies or
not. The operation which had
to take place urgently in
December cost Mr. Rahming
$400 a sizable chunk out of
any student's funds.
The talented young
Bahamian baritone's plight
came to the attention of a kind
hearted group of Bahamian
ladies who decided to take
action- in the form of a
Lenten Tea. To be held under
the patronage of Mr. Lionel
Davis, M.P., Parliamentary
Secretary to the Ministry of
Education and Culture and
Mrs. Davis, the affair will take
place on Sunday March 18
from 3 to 6 p.m. at the Greater
Bethel Temple, Rupert Dean
Lane. The proceeds will go
toward defraying Mr. Rahming
medical expenses.
Tickets may be obtained

between October 18 and 19,
last year in ..iippingham.
Late Wednesday, Mr.
Bostwicic objected to the
evidence given by Assistant
Police Superintendent Fletcher
Johnson of the Criminal
Investigation Department.
Called to testify by Solicitor
General Langton Hilton, Mr.
Johnson was charged by Mr.
Bostwick with inducing the
accused to make oral and
written statements.
Objecting to the answers
Davis made to the police
officer during questioning, Mr.
Bostwick alleged that "this
officer, (A.S.P. Johnson), being
a person having charge and
authority over the accused at
the material time, induced the
accused to make these
statements amounting to
confessions by giving ... the
accused reasonable grounds to
suppose that by making these
statements, he, the accused,
would gain an advantage and
avoid temporary inconvenience
in relation to the incident."
AN ISSUE
"Then the trial of
voluntariness is an issue," Mr.
Justice Samuel Graham then
said to Solicitor General
Hilton.
Replying that there was no
point in him leading further
evidence, Mr. Hilton asked Mr.
Johnson to stand down.
Other witnesses to testify
Wednesday afternoon were
Princess Margaret Hospital
nurse Clara Hanna, constable
Michael Ellis and Mr. Kermit
Brown.
On duty when the accused
arrived at the Out Patient's
Department with the deceased
in the early morning of
October 19, nurse Hanna said
she supervised the removal of
the deceased's body from the
accused's car.
She asked Davis to
accompany her to her office to
give certain particulars
concerning Grant, who was

then considered a "patient",
but when she turned to see if
he was following her he was
not around, she said.
FOUND ON FLOOR
Constable Ellis testified that
at about 3:52 a.m. on October
19, Davis approached him at
the Central Police Station and
reported "that he went home
about 2:30 a.m. the same
morning and he met his wife
then he said his sweetheart -
lying on the floor facedown in
the kitchen near the trash can.
"Hie said he spoke to her but
she did not answer so he lifted
her up and tried talking to her,
but she still did not answer so
he took her to hospital."
He said Davis told him he
wished to go home and return
later in the morning to give a
statement. "At this time he
appeared rather nervous and I
suspected there was probably
more to the story than he had
told me. I took him upstairs to
C.I.D. and turned the matter
over to Det. Fletcher Johnson
for further investigation."
Under cross-examination, he
told Mr. Bostwick that the
accused came into the station
voluntarily but never revealed
his sweetheart's name and his
address until asked.
He also said in answer to Mr.
Bostwick he had no idea why
Davis, who had come into the
station voluntarily, would
request permission to leave.
He later produced a diary in
which he said he had recorded
the time Davis made the report
to confirm his time was right.
Mr. Brown said he was a
friend of the deceased and
identified her body to hospital
authorities at the morgue.
The case continues..

VARIETY SHOW
THE Kingsway Academy
Parent-Teachers Association
will present a variety show 8
p.m. Tuesday at the school's
activities centre, Bernard Road.


ON MONDAY PANEL
Headmaster Andrew Curry
of Aquinas College will be
chairman of a three-man panel
discussion on education at St.
Augustine's auditorium on
Monday evening. Entitled
"Aims Of Bahamian
Education," the panel gets
underway at 8 p.m.
Panel speakers will be the
Right Rev. Michael Eldon,
Bishop of Nassau and the
Bahamas; the Honourable
Livingstone N. Coakley,
Minister of Education and
Culture; and Mr. Curry, who
will also chair the question and
answer period.
The panel has been arranged
as a public service to bring
together parents, teachers and
clergymen of all denominations
to trade views on how our
educational system can help
make human fulfilment
possible for the citizens of an
independent Bahamas.
A spokesman for the
committee arranging the panel
said that churchmen and
educators shared the anxiety of
parents over the spiritual
malaise that has gripped a large
sector of our youth, stifling
their creativity and enthusiasm
and causing some to seek
escape in drugs and alcohol.
But school administrators.
he said, cannot be expected to
cope with this situation
without the active support of
parents and clergymen. "If
school children are going to
become creative persons in the
new Bahamas," he said, "it
will only happen if the home,
the school and the church
work together to interpret the
message of Christ to Bahamian
youth in such a way as to help

His hunting methods


not Christian at all

By Abigail Van Buren
a im V caIMn Treaw-. Y. i lnI., Iac.
DEAR ABBY: May I add my comment to "Hunter's
Wife," concerning a husband who loves to hunt:
A minister I knew in the Army more than a quarter of a
century ago once told me that far too many deer were only
wounded, and went off into the woods to die in agony.
"My system," he explained, "is to break the deer's leg
with my first shot. Then I send my dogs after him. They
drive him to my car, and I shoot him there, so I don't have
to carry him, but can load him right on."
In short, Abby, people who love to kill will always find
a way to rationalize their cruelty. C. H. IN N. Y. C.
DEAR C. H.: I am appalled. I hope that minister didn't
preach what he practiced.

DEAR ABBY: I am 24, and my husband is 26. We both
work and don't have any children, which is a good thing,
because my husband is getting on my nerves.
We never go anywhere or do anything because he never
wants to. I make enough money to have my own car, but
he doesn't want me to have one. He'd rather drive me to
work and pick me up and have me ask him if I want to use
HIS car on weekends. When he lets me, he gives me a time
limit, which isn't very long. When I come home he quizzes
me on where I went and who I saw.
My younger sister is a high school cheerleader, so when
I go to my mother's and she's home, she and I practice
cheers and I help her make up some routines because I
used to be a cheerleader, too. My husband just hates that.
He keeps saying: "You're not in high school any more.
You're a married woman, so grow up and act like one."
Then he cuts the visit short and says: "Let's go home. I'm
bored."
He's also very jealous with no reason. I found out he
PAYS some of the neighborhood kids to watch my house
and write down the exact time they see me coming and
going.
What do you think of this marriage? DISGUSTED
DEAR DISGUSTED: I think it's time you and your
husband went somewhere together. For openers, try a
marriage counselor. I've heard only your side of it, but
your husband sounds like an immature, possessive, selfish
sourpuss to me. You have a whole lifetime ahead of you, so
you'd better learn how to get along with each other-or
without. But don't go on this way.

DEAR ABBY: If anyone wonders what to give a senior
citizen who's on a tight budget, please tell them to be
practical. [I have enough perfumed soap and aftershave
lotion to last me a lifetime.]
A most appreciated gift would be a book of postage
stamps, or some stamped envelopes, or postcards. It's not
always easy for us older folks to get to a post office, and
It's nice to have these things on hand.
Last Thanksgiving a dear friend gave me my Christ-
mas present early. It was a large box of Christmas cards.
Bless her, if she hadn't given me some, I wouldn't have
been able to send cards that year.
Please, pass the word, will you, Abby? It will make a
merrier Christmas for many senior citizens.
C. H. S. IN S. F.
DEAR C. H. S.: Consider it passed. But why wait until
Christmas?
Problems? Yo'Ull fee better f you get it off yor chest.

spent.
The three-act play, written
in the early 50's and set in a
European prison cell,
ultimately describes the
destruction of both a prisoner
and his interrogator by "the
system". The prisoner, a
Cardinal and a political, is
being questioned about his
activities during the Resistance
and Occupation and his final
confession, the credibility of
which is dubious, and one feels
that the author has specifically
left it so, is effected not by
beating or any other form of
physical torture or cruelty, but
by his interrogator gaining
control of his mind.
The interrogator, while
assuring his prisoner that he
was not going to inflict any
pain upon him, busily sets
about employing every
psychological trick at his
command, finally destroying
both himself and his captive.
The interrogator is made aware
of his great powers and his
human weaknesses to the point
of submitting his resignation to
the Ministry of Justice.
The play has a
"Kafkaesque" preoccupation
with time, with the system,
with regulations, with
destruction of human beings.
Everything is "part of the
system". The prisoner is fed
according "to regulations" and
the prisoner must die "the way
its laid down in the
regulations". The prisoner
himself, in one of his fits of
madness to which this form of
torture drives him, becomes
preoccupied with time and the
system.
Miss Boland cleverly uses

such symbols as the clock,
recitation of mathematical
tables and Latin prayers which
the Cardinal, through habit,
one suspects, tosses off.
Human nature and human
relationships are not supposed
to be of any importance. There
is no sympathy and as the
Prisoner says, under the
Occupation, "even people
without religion or belief
learned of duties above human
relationships". Such duties the
prison staff were in this case
executing.
TWISTS
All very w.-ll, except that by
the end or the play there are
twists: there has been a
deviation from the regulations,
from the system and words
such as "sympathy" "human
weakness", "frailty" find
themselves being uttered by
the, until then, hard and
battering interrogator. He is no
longer able to trust his own
heart. His weakness is
"humanity". To do his job, he
says, "I had to get so close to
you (prisoner) that we were
like two sides of the same man
talking to each other. And I
came to love and pity the other
side and hate what I made it
do." He becomes sick with
loathing from what he's done
to the Prisoner, to the point
that he cries: "We had no right
- no cause however just can
have the right to tamper with
the mind of a man".
The Cardinal, having
confessed fully, and been
found guilty, suffers a
punishment worse than death,
because, as the interrogator
says, "it's policy'. One wonders

whether he would have
confessed so fully had he been
aware of his final punishment.
The first Act moves far too
slowly, and this, I feel is not
basically the tault of the
performance or direction, but
one inherent in the script. Miss
Boland goes into far too much
detail to establish both her
characters and her setting, and
not that alone, but she puts her
audience through too many
scene changes, not giving time
for us to settle down properly.
(I don't know whether Mr.
Betts and cast would not have
done well by cutting). Given
this situation, I don't think
that the performers worked
hard enough at the outset and
this created a certain
monotony for the first four
scenes of Act 1.
The pride which one is to
feel emanating from the
Cardinal (Peter Glucksman)
was not very convincing at the
beginning. The aristocratic
superiority of the Interrogator
(Derek Coe) was not well
established. He simply did not
behave like an aristocratic
lawyer-cum-doctor dealing
with one who had risen to
heights in the Church from the
stench of fish. This, of course,
makes his final character
change less credible than it
could in fact have been. He
did, however, manage very well
to get and maintain the
menacing in his voice which
one would expect of an
interrogator. Whatever the
case, I did not feel that the
pressure of an interrogation
was on during these first four
scenes. By the fifth, however,
when the Prisoner's mother
(Irene Pollington), drugged and
committed to the Cancer
Research Hospital is brought in
to further torture him, both
protagonists began to gain
great strength.
BUILDS WELL
After this, the play builds
well and both Prisoner and
Interrogrator give a
performance of great
conviction, strength and
restraint. One begins to believe
in them, and even to
sympathise with them. One
begins to believe that they are
forming a bond a kind of
friendship; that their human
frailities are beginning to take
over and the Interrogator
adeptly moves from gentle
persuasion to hostility to
detachment, to heart-felt
sympathy for his victim, all of
which he manages well without
losing his menace.
The. Prisoner's intermittent
fits of madness and delirium
are extremely well-executed.
(Pity we see so much of the
crown of his head during these
scenes.) And they are
well-executed in light of the
fact that I think that Miss
Boland has not structured
them well. They come upon us
too quickly and leave equally
as quickly. His scrubbing and
rhythmic mathematical time
tables are extremely effective,
especially well helped by the
way in which he snaps out of
them. The movement from
pride to humility was not as
well delineated as it ought to
have been, I felt, and
consequently, Peter Glucksman
added a new dimension to the
play for me. Was he to return

Starkie) watch as "the prisoner" (Peter Glucksmann) tries

Players production ends Saturday night.


to his original pride? Did he
ever lose it? Derek Coe's final
character change was dramatic
though as I said earlier, it lost
some of its conviction.
Just toward the end of the
play, the denouement loses
some of the effect toward
which the performers had been
beautifully building.
Again, I feel that the author,
originally, is to blame for this.
She has the audience listening
to the Prisoner's confession
and the Interrogator's
questioning over a radio.
Meantime, we are losing the
impact of the whole trial upon
the Prisoner. I wonder whether
the Director should not have
allowed the Prisoner himself to
re-iterate these lines on stage.
In this way, I feel, the dramatic
effect and reality ably created
by Peter Glucksman would not
have been lost.
Peter Glucksman, who is
never off stage, and Derek (oe
are to be congratulated very
highly on their sensitive and
controlled performances of this
gruelling tour de force.
The Cell Warder (Tim
Crowther) played an excellent
cameo part, conveying the
impression of a certain age,
feelingness, wit, sympathy and
great pride in his job. ("This
here is my cell, sir, number
six").
He is the comic relief in the
play and while the protagonists
are interested in deciding
whether confession and truth
are synonymous, the Cell
Warder already knows the
difference, and when at the
end of the play, the Prisoner is
ready to leave the institution.
it is the Cell Warder who can
see that the characters have
suffered change and are
without any further defences
and have been exposed. It is he
who can say "It is open".
There was not one
non-speaking part with which
any fault could be found. The
Room Warder (Brian Dilar),
the Secretary (Geoffrey
Starkie), the Doctor (Gordon
Cooper), the Barber (Tony
Betts) and the old woman
(Irene Pollington) were all

TIEF DIRECTORS of- the

Wednesday that it was with
regret that they had received
the resignation of Mr.
Michael Kemp, manager of
the Company's Chippinghani
District.
Mr. Kemp is leaving the

a Circle to


present American comedy hit

FOR ITS NlEWIEST PRODUCTION, the Bahama Drama Circle


has chosen "The Gingerbread
American author Neil Simon.
Directed by John Hester, the
former Broadway hit comes to
the Dundas Civic Centre
Thursday. March 15, to
Sunday, March 18.
The comedy, which takes
place in New York City today,
deals with the problems of a
43-year-old, wise-cracking,
hard-drinking, faded pop singer
who's trying to make a
different kind of comeback
as a mother to her teenaged
daughter, and as a real human
being. Jeanne Thompson, as
Evy Meara, is "The
Gingerbread Lady."
It's a toss-up whether her
friends a wacky assortment
of oddballs help her or
hinder her, but they provide
plenty of laughs. ('alvin Cooper
is a homosexual actor who
wants to be a star; Sara Hester
plays her best friend who's
obsessed with her own beauty
and hides her real self under
tons of cosmetics. Warren
Jones comes on with the
romantic interest as the
no-good, handsome 33-year-old
guitar player who loved and
left Jeanne, and now wants to
come back.
As the daughter, IHeather
Thomipson presents a picture
of the modern teen-ager, who
arrives on the scene bra-less
and with birth control pills in
her suitcase, to make a life
with her mother.
Though it all takes place in
New York and is peopled with
colourful New York "types,"
the play travels easily to
Nassau. points out director
John Hester, who notes "there
are plenty of lushes in the
Bahamas too."
In the first act. when the
heroine returns from a "drying
out" spa for alcoholics, the
play's title is explained.

Christmas one year, the
daughter points out, it had a

Lady," the comedy hit by


migrating to Canada to do
evangelical missionary work
in that country.
The directors were lavish in
their praise of the good
work which Mr. Kemp has
done for Family Guardian
during the past seven years
and commented that "the
whole insurance industry in
the Bahamas would be
poorer because of his
departure."
The company's directors also
announced the promotion of
Mr. Henry Sears to succeed
Mr. Kemp as manager of
that District.
Mr. Sears on graduating
from St. Augustine's
College, joined Family
Guardian as an agent in July


1965 and in March 1969was
promoted to the position of
Staff Manager. During his
eight years with the
Company, Mr. Sears was
credited with having
contributed greatly to the
rapid growth of Family
Guardian in the Bahamas.
To succeed Mr. Sears in the
position of staff manager in
the Chippingham District, is
Mr. Mahlon Bethel. Mr.
Bethel joined Family
Guardian as an agent in July
1969 and has, during the
past four years, set an
outstanding record having
consistently been one of the
company's leading salesmen,
the director said.

JAPAN SEEKS TO CONCLUDE
TREATY WITH RUSSIA
TOKYO (AP) Japan
Wednesday told the Soviet Union
that it wants to hold the second
round of deadlocked negotiations
for concluding a World War Two
peace treaty between the two
countries this year.
The Foreign Ministry said the
statement was contained in a letter
sent to the Soviet party chief
Leonid Brethnev by Japanese Prime
Minister Kakuei Tanaka.
The letter was delivered to
Brezhnev, General Secretary of the
Soviet Communist Party, by
Japanese Ambassador to Moscow
Kinya Niizeki in the Soviet capital
Tuesday, it said.
Informed sources said it was the
first time for a Japanese
ambassador to meet Brezhev, the
No. I man in he Kremlin.
The sources said the letter does
not necessarily mean that either
Tanaka or Foreign Minister
Masayoshi Ohira would visit
Moscow.
The sources said that Tanaka's
letter contained Japanese
government's views on a wide range
,)f problems pending between the
two countries, including a peace
treaty and joint economic
development projects in the Soviet
Far East. No other details of the
letter were made available.
Japan and the Soviet Union
began peace treaty negotiations in
Moscow last October when Foreign
Minister Ohira visited the Soviet
Union, but the talks ran
immediately into deadlock.

STOOD BY AS PUPIL SANK
AND DROWNED
DETROIT (AP) A
manslaughter charge has been
placed against a swimming
instructor who allegedly forced a
terrified youth into the water and
then stood by as the boy sank to
the bottom of the pool.
Clayton Woodard Jr. was
arraigned Monday in the death of
George Jerry, 12, a student at the
Dancy School of Observation, an
institution for retarded children.
Witnesses said Woodard, 24,
forced the boy into the pool three
times and rapped his fingers as he
clutched the side of the pool.
The boy's parents said after the
youth's death last Wednesday their
son was afraid of the water. They
said he told them other students
were forced into the water against
their will.
After the youth sank,
witnesses said, Woodard stood
watching until they asked if he was
going to get the boy out of the
water. They said Woodard sent
another student into the pool to
rescue the Jerry youth and then
gave him mouth-to-mouth
resuscitation.
Attorney Hugh Davis said
Woodard was "a very grief-stricken
young man." Davis said Woodard
had been trying to cure the boy's
fear of water.
Woodard turned himself into the
police after the death.

early age so that the best side of the nature will assert itself
and life can then be successful. There will be much ability at
taking imaginative ideas and reducing them to a practical

There could be real fame here.

Smith last night as the Cougars
went through their finals in
preparation for tonight's game.
"I think we are going to beat
them by a bigger margin".
NO SPECIAL PLAY
Unlike other teams who,
when they meet the Colonels
build up their plays to stop the
big centre Sterling Quant,
Smith explained that they do
not have any special play for
Quant. "We are not going to
stop any individual player,"
said Smith, "we are going to
stop the Colonels.
"We are just going out there
and play out press," continued
SSmith. "lIe (Quant) is going to
get his share of rebounds and
points, but we are going to
make sure that he does not get
more than his share of
rebounds and points."
"In other words, we are
going to try and contain him,"
added Stancil Ferguson. "When
we go out on the court, we are
all business. When they want
amusement, they look to the
Classic Pros. They always put
on a show before the game."
Defence is the Cougars'

their key players, Sammy

BCA nominate veteran cricketer



Willie Elliott for Sportsman award

THE BAHAMAS FEDERATION OF AMATEUR SPORTS has announced that the Bahama!
Cricket Association has nominated veteran Willie Elliott of St. Bernard's C.C. for the Sportsman of


the Year Award 1972.
Elliott, a wicketkeeper/bats-
inan first started playing
cricket in 1947 with the then
newly formed St. Bernard's
Cricket Club.
Throughout these 25 years
with St. Bernard's Elliott has
maintained an extremely high
standard as the club's No. 1
wicketkeeper, shedding his
gloves on occasions to field in
any other position required of
him at the time, sayd the BCA.
Last year Elliott was
awarded the prize for the Best
Wicketkeeper in '72 as St.
Bernard's captured the regular
series for the fourth
consecutive year, taking the
most catches behind the
wicket, the highest amount of
stumpings and allowing the
least amount of heys to be
recorded against his team.
In recommending Elliott to


WILLIE ELLIOTT
... gets cricket nomination.

the BFAS the Association
states that "all members of the
BCA are mindful of his
contributions to cricket over


the past 25 years, and above all
his example to the younger
players."
The Association concludes
its recommendation for Elliott
for Sportsman Of The Year
Award by saying, "most
especially we would like to
mention his quiet dedication
and his sportsmanship even
when things were not going
well. He has never been known
to lose his temper while on the
field of play throughout his
extensive career and took all
decisions of umpires as final
whether he thought they were
fair or not."
The Prime Minister's Cup
will be awarded to the
outstanding Sportsman and
Sportswoman of the Year at
the BFAS Dinner Dance on
March 17 at the Sonesta Beach
Hotel.

In the past years we
non-Americans, have seen these
change. What was developed in

heaurocaticism have set in to
the point that the system has
become corrupt.

Allegations by such a
powerful agency are such that


AUSSIES 189 FOR 4
BRIDI)GTOWN, BARBADOS
(Al') The Chappell brothers, lan
and Greg, added 129 in a third
wicket partnership which rescued
Australia after a poor start on the
first lday on the Second 'rest against
the West Indies here Friday.
Australia were 19 for two with
openers Keith Stackpole and Ian
Redpath back in the dressing rooms
when Greg joined lan after
three-quarters of an hour's play. By
the time lan was run out two hours
25 minutes later for 72, the balance
had been restored in Australia's
favour and at tea the total had
reached 189 for four wickets.
The early play had been
dominated by the home team.
After Australia won the toss and
elected to bat, they ran into early
trouble. Off the fourth ball of the
day, Stackpole cut at fast bowler
Vanburn Holder and edged a high
catch to Rohan Kanhai at first slip
who took it at second attempt.


there is no opportunity for a
fair trial or a fair airing of the
views of the accused
Conviction by publicity is
tantamount to destruction of
fundholders' and shareholders'
interests. And yet there is no
recourse, one cannot sue such
an agency for the irreparable
harm and damage suffered by
stockholders and other
interested parties.
The enforcement staff of the
SEC brags about the fact that
they have brought more
actions during the Casey-Cooke
regime than in the entire
history of the SEC. If a
business man made the
statements or allowed the press
to continuously print
misleading attacks without
correction as the SEC has in
this case he would be charged
