EXTRA 4 MILLION GALLONS OF WATER

A DAY FOR NASSAU BY LATE 1975


Works Minister tells






Tribune of 2 more






NP desalination plants


By MIKE LOTHIAN
NEW PROVIDENCE WATER SUPPLIES will be increased by four million gallons a day by late 1975 with the
installation of two additional desalination plants at the Blue Hills power and water complex, Works Minister
Simeon Bowe revealed today.


Solomon loses his


quest for committee



on water problems

OPPOSITION FNM representative Norman Solomon (St.
George's) was today not granted his committee to consider
matters pertaining to the water supply.


Government Leader Arthur
Hanna said that while he felt
that no member should be
denied a committee, Mr.
Solomon had shown he was
not able to be trusted from his
previous activities and this had
to be taken into consideration.
Both Mr. Hanna and Works
Minister Simeon Bowe claimed
the St. George's representative
had in 1971 rhade pubhc in the
press information obtained by
him privately as chairman of
the Accounts Committee.
Committees usually had
certain powers, in this case, to
send for persons and papers.
When this information was
given to a committee it was
also imperative that the
committee keep these in the
greatest confidence.
Where a member violated


that rule he was subject to a
penalty, Mr. Hanna said.
In his opinion it was
doubtful the member could be
trusted, nor did he think he
was serious in his offer to help.
Opposition representative
Sir Roland Symonette
(FNM-Shirlea) spoke before
Mr. Hanna.
Although h- didn't know
what the committee could do,
Sir Roland said he felt it would
be discourteous not to let the
member have it.
"Government needs more
sympathy than criticism, but I
wouldn't like this House to get
into the habit of denying a
member a committee because
the government is in the
majority," Sir Roland declared.
The Opposition was
overruled, however.


Finance Minister,not Prices


Commission, decides prices

By MIKE LOTHIAN
THE BAHAMAS WHOLESALERS' ASSOCIATION is
maintaining its silence following a 90 minute meeting Tuesday
afternoon with the Prices Commission to discuss the rising cost of


importing "'breadbasket" items

whose sale prices are controlled

getting it ready to send to
them today.
Mr. Pritchard added:
"We cannot operate this
way, not in the food business."
He also remarked that the
price control system "is not
geared for quick action as it
should be." He said he and
other wholesalers learned for
the first time at yesterday's
meeting that Finance Minister
Arthur Ilanna, not the Prices
Commission, makes the final
decisions on price changes.
SINCERE, BUT ...
"1 think the Commission
itself is sincere in their desire
to help, but their hands are
tied just like ours. We tell them
for instance that a case of some
item has gone up a dollar in
cost, they'll look at it and
agree they see the proof, but
they can't do anything about it
but make a recommendation to
the Minister. It shouldn't be
necessary at this point for it to
take another week, two weeks
P or even three weeks for Mr.
Hanna to make up his mind."
Mr. Pritchard said the
Association will withhold
further comment until they
have had some sort of reaction
from Government to, the
information handed over
yesterday.
The Tribune learned from
sources outside the Association
that it costs food importers
more to buy some essential
food items than the price for
which they are al' )wed to sell
under price control regulations
brought into force on Marichi
28.
Sources said several
importers have cancelled orders
for certain items because of the
gap between purchase price
and controlled sale price.


The Minister told The
Tribune that the desalination
plants will utilize the heat from
B ahamas Iec t r i c i t y
Corporation generators at the
Blue Hills complex to
evaporate sea water and
convert it from saline to fresh
water.
The two new plants will be
commissioned "around the
third quarter of 1975," Mr.
Bowe told the Tribune.
The first indication of
concrete Government plans to
alleviate the water problem
came during debate on an
Opposition bid for a select
committee to investigate water
supplies.
Norman Solomon (INM-St.
George's and Dunmore), who
moved for the committee,
charged that in its six years of
administration the PLP
Government had done
"nothing" about the water
problem.
Mr. Bowe interrupted Mr.
Solomon to point out that the
PLP Government installed the
existing desalination plant at
Blue Hills, and as a result there
are two million more gallons of
water a day now than there
were when the PLP came to
power.
FOUR MILLION
"And we intend to produce
four million gallons a day more
than we do now in the very
near future," he added.
After the House adjourned
the Minister gave The Tribune
further information.
Waste-heat boilers will be
linked up with the BEC
generators at Blue Hills to
make desalination plants. The
existing plant provides its own
heat for evaporation by
consuming fuel and increasing
the cost of water production.
Waste-heat boiler
desalination plants use no fuel.
(While Mr. Bowe said the
new plants are to be
operational by late 1975, no
work on the project is
scheduled during 1973,
according to the budget.
Appropriations for capital
development in the area of
water and sewerage total only
$255,000 this year. A "water
research project" is to cost
$15,000 this year, and there is
an item, "waste heat boiler
Blue Hills," the total cost of
which is estimated to be $1.08
million. But no funds have
been allocated to the item this
year.)
Mr. Solomon, at the time of'
Mr. Bowe's interruption, was
replying to the remarks of
Government members, who
made it clear they would not
support the select committee.
Deputy Prime Minister
Arthur Hanna declared "1I
believe it would not be in the
public interest to allow this
committee.
"I would like to
congratulate the Minister of
Works for the tremendous
efforts that have been made by
his Ministry in trying to solve
the misfortune of the people,
that is, in trying to get water
within the reach of everyone.
"1I must condemn
anything that would interfere
with that effort."
Mr. Ilanna said "it is
unfortunate that a member
should come to this Hlouse and
try to make political mileage
over the misfortunes of a
people."
SAl ISFI ID
Health Minister Loftus
Roker emphasized that,
contrary to accusations from
the Opposition, "the Ministry
of Health is in full control of


the health of water. We are
satisfied there is no need to
boil the city water. We are
satisfied it meets the required
health standards. So there is no
need for members to alarm the
public.
Mr. Roker was referring to
remarks made earlier by Marsh
II a r bour representatives
Errington Watkins (FNM), who
said that the water now being
pumped through the city water
supply was "mud," but he had
heard no warning from the
Ministry of Health to the
public to boil their water.
"I agree with the member
for Shirlea (Sir Roland
Symonette) when he says there
is no useful purpose this
committee could serve. It
could only do harm by
bringing an alarming report
based on incomplete.
information."
Opposition Leader Kendal
Isaacs (FNM-Fort Montagu)
said "they obviously need help
and we are offering assistance."
That brought the remark
from Mr. Bowe that assistance
could be offered by merely
going to the Works Ministry
and making suggestions.
Instead, "the Opposition
wants a committee for a
political football they can kick
about."
Mr. Solomon told the House
that "they have had six long
years and all they have
accomplished is a steady
deterioration in every area of
the economy.
"The Government will
continue as long as it is able to
fool the average man. They
take a perverse pleasure in
taking advantage of the average
man, because the average man
is not as sophisticated as they.
"I may not be alive then,
but the day of reckoning is
coming, when the average man,
who is getting more and more
educated every day, stops
being fooled."
lHe said "a committee such
as this could only act in the
public interest." And he
pointed out that every select
committee has a majority of
Government members, and any
"alarming" report would have
to be supported by the
Government members.
"The only reason for their
action here today is that they
have something in there that
cannot stand the light of day."

GARNET MORE DIES
MR. G(ARNIT Moree, 56 of
Montagu Heights, died
suddenly at the Princess
Margaret Hospital about 7 a.m.
today.
Mr. Moree, who was born at
Gray's Long Island but spent
all his life in Nassau, suffered a
heart attack about three weeks
ago.
A member of his family said
that he was progressing well
and it was hoped that he would
be released from hospital
today.
Mr. Moree owned the
Palmdale Supermarket in
Palmdale. A few years ago he
closed the retail section of the
operation, but continued in
business as a wholesaler to the
time of his death.
He is survived by his wife,

or present shortage here

By NICK KELLY
THE GOVERNMENT IS SUFFICIENTLY CONCERNED by
the present water shortage that is actively considering barging
water in from Andros, Abaco, Grand Bahama and even Miami,
Works Minister Simeon Bowe disclosed in the House today.


Mr, Bowe's cot.iments
were spurred by a notion put
by St. George's representative
Norman Solomon (INM) who
was seeking a committee to
consider all matters pertaining
to the supply of potable water
to New Providence.
In addition the member
wanted particular emphasis put
on the country's ability to
satisfy efficiently the increased
demands required by domestic
and industrial expansion, with
power to send for persons and
papers.
Contrary to a Guardian
headline during the
Appropriations debate, he had
not rejected the idea of barging
water from Andros, Mr. Bowe
said.
M a r s h Ha r b o u r
representative Errington
Watkins (FNM) had
recommended this course when
he spoke during the Budget
debate.
"I at no time rejected the
idea," the Minister declared. "I
told the House what the cost
would be and the navigational
hazards involved. I explained
that all efforts were being
made, and we are now
considering barging water from
Andros or Abaco, Grand
Bahama and even Miami."
Questioning Mr. Solomon's
sincerity in asking for a
committee, Mr. Bowe said he
could see no reason for it.
NO PURPOSE
"What would be the purpose
of having a committee to come
back and tell us what I have
already told the Ilouse. [he
best solution we can see is
desalination and we will have
to use that in addition to any
other method."
The Minister asserted that
when Mr. Solomon was
chairman of the Accounts
committee he had used
information made available to
him in that capacity as material
for his column "As I See it."
According to figures
produced by the Minister,
facilities on New Providence
were only able to provide six
million gallons of water daily,
although there was a regular
demand for ten million.
And ifit were not for the Blue
Hills desalination plant, which
had been repeatedly criticized
by Mr. Solomon, the
government would only be able
to produce four million gallons
Mr. Bowe said.
He maintained that the
water -s "just not there."
According to his breakdown,
Clifton Pier was only capable
of producing 1 million gallons
a day; the well fields 2 million ;
2 million purchased from the
New Providence I)evelopment
Company and 2 million from
the Blue Hills plant.
OLD SYSTEM
Furthermore, Mr. Bowe said,
the distribution system was "as
old as the hills" which meant
that there was inadequate
pressure to push the water to
the outlying areas of Nassau.
If there had been proper
planning in the past, and some
projection, perhaps it wouldn't
take the present government as
long to meet present needs.
The situation was made more
difficult by the demands of
hotels for water, he said.
In his opening remarks Mr.


Solonson traced the problems
experienced with the Blue Hills
plant since January 1972. lie
said that some consumers had
been going without water for
periods as long as 18 to 24
hours.
Hotels at this time were not
anything like full, but if these
were filled with tourists, Mr.
Solom0on said he could easily
imagine the additional burden
this would place upon the
government's ability to supply
water.
"Any country that talks of
expansion and development
will not be able to achieve this
if it is not able to maintain a
sufficient supply of water at all
times."
The purpose of having a
committee, Mr. Solomon said,
was to try and find out
what government was doing to
satisfy the public.
In addition it would try to
assist in sovling the problem
and getting to the root of it.


HIDING?
"Government has nothing to
lose and may have something
to gain. If it has nothing to
hide it will be happy to grant
the appointment of this
committee," he said.
Mr. Watkins argued that the
Minister was willing to spend
$36 million on a sewer system,
but he wondered if somebody
forgot to tell him that sewers
didn't work without water.
The Marsh Harbour
representative said he was
becoming alarmed at the water
situation because some people
were digging their own wells.
"We have a cesspit system and
our rock is not the best for a
filter system." he declared.
Mr. Watkins warned of the
possibility of an epidemic from
drinking contaminated water.
"If government can spend
$36 million for a sewer system
that cannot work without
water it can spend $15 million
on a water system."
BUY WATER
Hle maintained that
government members could
buy water but the grassroots
could not afford that and had
to drink what was supplied by
government.
In addition there were leaks
all over the place and every
time the water and sewerage
department was called they
said they had nobody to send,
Mr Watkins suggested the
government close down the
Blue IHills plant and rent it out
as a storeroom to someone.
St. Barnabas representative
Sinclair Outten (PLP) pointed
to the period in the 1950s
when the former UBP
government installed a Weir
desalination plant. That had
now been put on the scrap
heap, but that should not be
ta k en to mean that
desalination plants did not
work.
An electrical engineer
formerly with the Bahamas
Electricity Corporation, Mr.
Outten said that nowhere in
the world could one find a
desalination plant that worked
at 100 per cent capacity. "That
is impossible." he said.
lie noted, however, that
they had been used effectively
in various parts of the world
where there was a shortage of
water.


Mr. Ilanna's disclosures
came on the intotion tfor
adjournment, when Errington
Watkins (FNM-Marsh Ilarbour
rose to congratulate tile
Government "for the wisdom
in appointing a well-qualified
and capable Bahamian

Commissioner of Police

a thrown


bottle led to shooting &



attempted murder charge

By SIDNEY DORSETT
A STRACHAN'S ALLEY PLUMBER, shot three times in the
upper arm and left side on July 1, testified this morning that he
received the wounds after Hasting Bethell, 44, a lumber yard


clerk had threatened to "mess
himself.
Testifying this morning
when the Supreme Court
attempted murder trial of
Bethell opened before Mr.
Justice Samuel Graham with
Solicitor General T. Langton
Hilton presenting the case for
the prosecution, Vincent
Adderley said Bethell made the
threats after he had
complained about somebody
throwing a bottle at his son.
His evidence was taken after
that of Princess Margaret
Hospital medical officer, Dr.
Nuafor and laboratory
technologist Mr. James
Wilmington Sands.
A former patient at the
hospital where he had been
listed as critically ill by Dr.
Nuafor, Adderley said that the
shooting took place after he
visited his girl-friend, Shirley
Clarke, at home on Feaste
Alley.
"1 was sitting in the front
room facing the door when I
saw a bottle come from over in
the other house and fall near
Shirley Clarke's house near to
where my little boy was
playing.
"H[asting Bethell lived in the
other house, occasionally I saw
a woman there with him. I
went out on Shirley's porch
and seeing the woman at the
window of the other house, I
asked her had she thrown the
bottle," Mr. Adderley said.
DENIALS
"1 told her that the bottle
came from her house. It could
have broken and either cut or
blind the child," he said. After
she denied throwing it, hie said
he asked Bethell about Ithe
bottle. Bethell denied throwing
it.
"1 told them had the bottle
cut the child, they would not)
have liked it," Mr. Adderley
said.
An argument followed
between Mr. Adderley and
Bethell who had come onto his
own porch saying that "he
didn't care if the bottle hit the
child and he would mess up
everyone in Shirley Clarke's
house," Mr. Adderley said.
During the argument, Mr.
Adderley said he left his porch
and picked up his son.,
Terrence, and "about half-way
between the two houses I told
Bethell see the boy here, mess
him up if he liked."
Hie said that Bethell then
shot him with a gun, once in
the upper right arm and twice
in the left side. He said after
the shooting. Miss Clarke
offered him a red-bladed
cutlass to fight Bethell. but he
told her to put it away and call
an ambulance. At no time did
he touch the cutlass, which rhe

could not remember what

The sub-committee broke up for lack of a quorum and put off final
action on the bill until after the Elaster recess ending April 30.
It approved by voice vote a section that would require the President to

the 20,000-ton warships, to be named Invincible, should be in service by
1978. The others are scheduled to be at sea by 1980.
The ships are known as 'through-deck' cruisers a cross between an
aircraft carrier and a conventional missile carrying cruiser.
Vertical takeoff fighters and a squadron of anti-submarine helicopters
will operate off a short diagonal flight deck. The ships will be armed with
French-made ship-to-shore Exocet missiles and Sea Dart missiles for
anti-aircraft and anti-missile defense.
The three-ship programme was a victory for Britain's naval chiefs who
had pressed the government to restore the fleet's dwindling air strike arm
amid a major navy scaledown.
Britain has cut its conventional carrier force from five to one in the last
six years. The sole remaining carrier, the 55,000-ton Ark Royal, is
scheduled to be phased out by 1978.
The new mini-carriers will be powered by Rolls Royce Olympus gas
turbines, a marine version of the supersonic Concorde airliner's engines.
They will be the biggest navy vessels built in Britain since 1944 and
strategists hope they will be some kind of answer to Russia's long-range
missile ships whose weapons have a range of 350 miles.

case, & no immunity

WASHINGTON (AP President Nixon announced Tuesday
"There have been major developments in the Watergate case as
a result of a new inquiry.


lIe said he will immediately
suspend any members of the
executive branch who may in
future be indicted by a federal
grand jury considering the
matter.
Nixon declared last Aug. 29
that an earlier private inquiry
convinced him no member of
the White House staff at that
time was involved. But hie said
in a brief appearance before
newsmen Tuesday that tie now
wants to emphasize that no
member of the White IHouse or
the executive branch should
claim i miin un ity from
prosecution.
Pledging full cooperation
with present investigations of
the Watergate Conspiracy by a
federal grand jury and a select
Senate committee, Nixon
announced that all members of
the White House staff will
appear voluntarily before the
Senate committee, testify
under oath and provide full
answers to all proper questions.
NO QUESTIONS
The President, who accepted
no questions during his


Government attorney

cancels questioning

of Watergate figure

WASHINGTON (AP) An
attorney representing the
Nixon re-election campaign in
a series of lawsuits Tuesday
cancelled some testimony that
could have put Watergate
figure James W. McCord on the
public record.
McCord has yet to testify in
public about who else may
have been involved in last
year's bugging and burglary of
Democratic offices, or what
other Republican spy schemes
may have been under way
during the campaign.
Lawyer Kenneth Wells
Parkinson had been scheduled
to question McCord under oath
next Friday, but said he called
off the deposition because of
certain discussions which he
isn't free to describe.
Only last Friday Pakinson
argued against a request by
Senate investigators to keep
McCord's lawsuit testimony
secret U.S. district judge
Charles Richey denied the
request, which had been made
in a letter from Sen. Sam J.
Ervin, (D-N.C.) the committee
chairman.
Unless Democratic lawyers
in the lawsuits can quickly
schedule their own deposition
with McCord, it now appears
that McCord will J.ive his first
public testimony about the
Watergate affair in hearings
before Ervin's committee.
rhey are scheduled to begin
May 15.
IMPLICATIONS
Sources have said McCord's
earlier, secret testimony before
a federal grand jury and Ervin's
Senate panel, produced hearsay
evidence implicating high
administration officials in the
Watergate affair, and linking
Parkinson himself to alleged
payoffs to silence McCord and
other Watergate defendants.
Meanwhile the White Hlouse
had nothing to say about a
report in the Los Angeles
Times but President Nixon
soon would make a "dramatic
admission' saying one or more
high-level administration
officials were responsible for
Watergate-type political
espionage.
Deputy press secretary
Gerald L. Warren also
continued to maintain that
former Att. ;Gen. John Mitchell
did not see President Nixon
during a Saturday visit to the
White House. But, he could not
shed any light on who Mitchell
had seen.
"I frankly don't know who
he saw. I haven't been able to
check every office," Warren
told reporters.


appearance before television
film cameras in the White
House briefing room, originally
had indicated White House
staffers would not be available
to the Senate committee. He
had claimed such a procedure
would violate the
constitutional separation of
powers between the executive
and legislative branches.
Nixon said Tuesday that as a
result of negotiations between
leaders of the Senate group and
White House aides, "I believe
now an agreement which is
satisfactory to both sides" has
been reached.
The Senate panel, headed by
Senator Sam J. Ervin, voted
Monday to accept no less than
public, sworn testimony from
any presidential aides called as
witnesses, with virtually no
relevant questions ruled out.
The President said that the
committee had agreed it may
hear some witnesses in
executive session before they
appear at televised public
hearings, and that witnesses
from the executive branch will
be allowed to invoke executive
privilege ift they feel such a
move is called for in the case of
individual questions.
NEW PROBE
Nixon said that he launched
an intensive new investigation
of his own into the Watergate
matter after serious charges,
some of them made public,
came to light on March 21.
On Sunday afternoon, he
reported, he met in the
executive office building next
to the White House with
Attorney General Richard G.
Kleindienst and Henry
Petersen, head of the justice
departments criminal section,
and discussed the new findings
at length.
"There have been major
developments in the case,"
Nixon said, but declared it
would be improper to detail
them at this time.
"Real progress has been
made in finding the truth," he
said.
The original White House
inquiry into Watergate was
directed by presidential
counsel John W. Dean Ill. It
was as a result of that
investigation that Nixon
publicly stated no present
members of his staff had been
involved.
The fact that Nixon directed
that a second investigation be
conducted seemed to suggest
he no longer was satisfied with
Dean's original findings.
WILLING TO TELL
The President did not
explain precisely the
significance of the March date
he had mentioned, but it was
about that time that convicted
Watergate conspirator James
W. McCord Jr. disclosed that
he would be willing to tell
what he knew about the
matter.
Since then McCord has
testified before the federal
grand jury and before Ervin's
Senate panel. Although his
testimony was given in secret,
reliable sources have said
McCord offered hearsay
testimony indicating that
Dean, former Attorney General
John N. Mitchell and the
second-in-command at Nixon's
re-election effort, Jeb S.
Magruder, had advance
knowledge of bugging and
related political espionage
activities.
Nixon reported that
negotiations with the Senate
committee were conducted on
his behalf by John D.
Ehrilchman, his assistant for
domestic affairs, and Leonard
Garment, special consultant to
the President.


CHAROLTTE AMALIE, St.
Thomas, April 17 (AP) The key
Virgin Island government official
involved in the Fountain Valley
murder investigation resigned today
in a surprise move.
Ronald H. Tonkin, a 35-year-old
cigar-smoking Attorney General,
was not only instrumental in the
capture of five suspects following
the Sept. 6 slaying, but has been
involved in the preparation of a
criminal case that goes to trial in
U.S. district court on May 1.
Tonkin, however, said the
pressure of the case had nothing to
do with his decision to quit
effective May 4. Instead, hr blamed
the "political situation" in the
Virgin Islands, and alleged failure of
Gov. Melvin H. Evans to consult
him on government issues,
"He (Evans) likes a yes man,"
lonkin charged.
Shortly after the Fountain
Valley Golf Course murders, when
eight persons were gunned down by
masked gunmen, political pressure
began to mount on the admittedly
weak law enforcement structure in
the Virgin Islands.
Tonkin, as the only white
member of the Evans Cabinet,
believed that some of the
frustration erupted against him in
an honest effort to deal with crime
on the island.
WIFE THREATENED
In November, two months after
the killings, his attractive brunette
wife was threatened on the streets
in downtown, Christiansted St.
Croix, where the trial will be held,
and called her "racial names,"
Tonkin said.
A citizens group marched on the
Senate building in Charlotte
Amalie, the capital city in the
Virgin Islands, charging him "with
prejudice that impaired the
impartial administration of justice
in the territory."
Senate President Claude Malloy
thought the position serious enough
to order a hearing to air the issues.
Tonkin, however, refused to show
up on the grounds that the Senate
failed to list charges.
As a result of the Fountain
Valley murders, Tonkin tightened
his relationship with U.S. attorney
general Richard Kleindenst.
Tonkin, who took on the
Attorney General's post on March
26, 1971, will now work for the
high Nixon official. Beginning May
7, he will be in charge of all
narcotic law enforcement along the
Texas-Mexican border.

ACCUSED SLAYER

IN MASS MURDER

TELLS OF TORTURE
CHRISTIANSTED, ST. CROIX
April 17 (AP) A defendant in the
mass slaying of eight persons at a
Rockefeller-owned country club
testified today that police told him
500 soldiers were to be brought to
St. Crois to help search for the
killers, and that they would kill the
suspects rather than take them
prisoner.
The witness, 23-year-old
Beaumont Gereau, added the police
urged him to reveal what he knew
and thus save the life of his alleged
companions in the Fountain Valley
Golf Course slaughter.
No troops were sent from Puerto
Rico, but U.S. Marshals and F.B.I.
agents from the nearby Caribbean
island came to help in the manhunt.
Gereau was the second witness
in a procedure to hear a motion to
suppress evidence that began
Monday in U.S. district court in
Christiansted. Defense attorneys
insist statements purportedly given
to authorities by the five
defendants were obtained by
torture and intimidation.
In his testimony, Gereau also
described in detail physical
torments supposedly suffered from
police officer.fi He claimed that a
police officer prodded him
repeatedly with an electric cattle
rod on the arms and on the
testicles.
Gereau also claimed a police
officer looped a noose over his
neck, and tightened it until he
made a choking sound.
"I gagged," Gereau recalled when
he still refused to answer questions,
the witness said, then the
interrogating police officer would
tighten the noose again "until I
made signs like I was passing out."
The account of the rope torture
was similar to a version given the
court Monday by the first witness
to be heard 22-year-old Meral
Smith.
Gereau maintained he was not
allowed to speak with an attorney
until four days after his Sept. 8
arrest. The shooting was staged on
Sept. 6. He also stated he was held
incommunicado from his family
until he received a visit "for five
minutes" from his wife.
Gereau was arrested .t a friend's
home in the town of Fredericksted,
across the island from his abode in
Christiansted. He charged that
when his friend asked to see a
warrant police slugged the man in
the mouth.
The hearings continued in strict
security and careful courtroom
ground rules. Today district judge
Warren Young barred a newsman
from sketching profiles of Gereau.

THE DOMINION LIFE ASSURANCE COMPANY


to making of peace

by George Bria
UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (AP) The United States
denounced Israel's reprisal raids in the Middle East but demanded
equal U.N. condemnation of Arab terrorism.


"Violence by conventional
forces and violence by
terrorists are to be condemned
equally one is as ugly as the
other," ambassador John A.
Scali told the Security Council
on Tuesday.
He thus emphasized that the
United States would veto any
Council action that struck
exclusively at Israeli's swift
and deadly commando raids
into Lebanon last week.
"To the shame of all
mankind," Scali said, "acts of
violence and terror, often
striking down innocent people,
are on the verge of becoming a
routine footnote to the tragic
and unresolved Arab-Israeli
conflict.
"In the past few months,
hundreds have been killed -
innocent men, women and
children, diplomats, tourists
and bystanders alike," he said.
"We are living today at a
time when a knock on the door
may signal the visit of an
assassin armed with machine
gun or a fire bomb.
"It is intolerable that our
fears have now reached the
stage that at a thousand
airports around the world
innocent civilians must submit
to complex security searches
before boarding their planes -
and pray that their flights will
be safe...
"It is intolerable that
opening the morning mail may
trigger an explosion. It is
intolerable that the innocent
cannot regard even the family
apartment, the social gathering,
the Olympic sporting field or
the quiet streets as an abode of
peace."
UGLIER
Asserting that the violence
in the Middle East ".has taken
on newer and uglier
dimensions," Scali said "the
United Nations must leave no
doubt as to the disapproval of
the international community
of unwarranted and
unnecessary loss of innocent
lives from acts of international
terrorism and military
responses to it."
"We ask for an end to both
cross-border attacks and
individual acts of violence,"
Scali said. "If the council will
call for this, it will create an
atmosphere in which we can
move from the assessment of
blame to the making of peace."

on Lebanon's complaint about
the Israeli raid that killed three
top Palestinian guerrilla
leaders, Britain also
condemned both Israelis and
Palestinians.
Ambmbassador Sir Colin
Crowe said the Mideast was in
the grip of "a vicious circle of
reprisal and counterreprisal
with the scene dominated
increasingly by extremists and
extreme counsels."
BITTERNESS
At the same time, Crowe
e x pressed sympathy for
Palestinian refugees, saying "it
is not surprising that bitterness
and hatred should grow in their
hearts and that, in despair,
some of them should turn to
violence and extremism."
He said Britain would be
glad if the Council called for
renewal of the peace-making
efforts of Gunnar V. Jarring of
Sweden, the U.N. special
Mideast negotiator.
Ambassador Yosef Tekoah
of Israel said that in the
absence of effective measures
by the United Nations to curb
terrorism, Israel has no choice
but to protect its people.
When Arab terrorism ends
there will be no need for Israeli
countermeasures, he said.
The Lebanese ambassador,
Edouard Ghorra, invited Israel
"on this day of Passover" to
allow Palestinians "to pass over
the border and reintegrate their
homes.
"They will come only with
flowers, the flowers of peace,"
he said.
The session was suspended
until Wednesday


WOUNDED KNEE, S.D). (AP) -
Heavy gunfire was exchanged
between federal police and Indians
on the perimeter of this besieged
village Tuesday, a few hours after a
supply drop by three light
airplanes, a government spokesman
said.
Charles Cadleux, an interior
department official, said one Indian
suffered a head wound and was
taken by a federal helicopter to
Pine Ridge. It was not immediately
known how seriously the Indian
was wounded.
Cadleux told newsmen the
gunfire lasted about I /i hours. He
said it began about 9 a.m. when
Indians fired on a government
helicopter that was on a;
reqonnalsance mission on the
outskirts of the village. The
helicopter was not hit, he said,
although there was "much fire".
"About a half hour later three
government roadblocks came under
heavy fire," Cadieux said, and an
hour later the marshals and IBI
agents at the blockades were given
the order to return fire.
The government spokesman said
that shortly before dawn three light
planes dropped seven packages by
parachute into the village. He
would not comment on whether he
knew the content of the packages
or whether the planes had been
identified.
SYMPATHIZERS
An anonymous telephone caller
told the Associated Press in New
York that the planes were flown by
members of the "Wounded Knee
airlift." He said 10 parachutes, each
carrying about 200 rounds of food
staples, were dropped about 6:50
a.m.
The caller said the delivery was
made by antiwar activists who
sympathize with the Indian's cause.
Cadieux also reported that
marshals picked up five persons
who attempted to leave the village
about 4 a.m. All were charged with
interfering with federal officers and
were jailed in nearby Pine Ridge.
Militant Indians have occupied
the reservation village of Wounded
Knee since Feb. 27.

By ETIENNE DUPUCH
THE PLP was swept to power on a wave of fanatical racialism.
This is a cancer that eventually destroys the very bowels of a
people.
In addition they made many promises to the people.
They charged that the people were being unduly taxed by the
U.B.P. ... and promised to correct this injustice.
Today the people are being more heavily taxed than in the
whole history of the colony.
They declared that the Bay Street Boys charged too much for
their goods in the shops ... and promised that they would force
these prices down.
And so they appointed a Prices Control Committee to do this
job.
Still prices continue to rise. One of the reasons for this
condition is the result of new taxes levied on property and
imported goods.
The Government demands that the merchants absorb the extra
costs created by the new taxes.
What they fail to recognize is that people are not in business
for love. They must make a profit to stay in business and the
profit must be large enough to make the effort worth-while.

Efforts by Government to force business people to trade at an
unfair profit have brought immediate reaction.
Recently the largest chicken farm in New Providence closed
down because its owner said he lost money at the prices fixed by
the Prices Control Committee. This created such a shortage of
poultry in the market that the committee was obliged to meet the
demands of the producer.
Already merchants are taking steps to reduce overhead
operating expenses. This action usually hits labour and takes
money out of circulation.
I am told that car parts are now in short supply and will
become increasingly so -- because the profit motive has been
removed by the new taxes and other restrictions from this branch
of the automotive business.
Generally the effect of restrictions now being imposed by
Government is to reduce standards in any community.
The time may come when taxis in the Bahamas will be reduced
to the rattle traps that I found plying for hire during my recent
visit to Jamaica.
It will certainly affect the liquor trade among tourists who
found it worth-while to take a quart of liquor back to the U. S. at
the end of their visit to the island.
And there is evidence to show that the direct result of the kind
of taxes imposed by the Government is a sharp reduction in the
consumption of the taxed products by the public, thereby
causing inconvenience to the people and defeating the whole
object of the exercise.
You know that the Government must be scraping the bottom
of the barrel when they felt obliged to add five percent to the
Emergency Tax.
This overall tax on imports was imposed by the Government
during the second world war. It was supposed to be lifted after
the war. But it was allowed to continue. And now it has been
substantially increased by a Government that promised to relieve
the people of the burden of taxation.

If all this were not so serious it would be funny.
The Government has placed a retail price ceiling on certain
goods.
To do this it has been necessary to make the ceiling high
enough to protect the small merchant, many of whom buy their
goods off the shelves in the big shops and then sell them at a
higher price by opening their businesses earlier and staying open
later than the big shops.
These small shops catch the trade of the little people at high
prices.
There are so many of these small shops in what the
Government describes as "the grass roots" of the people that they
cannot afford to put them out of business.
And so the ceiling prices must be high enough to protect these
small shops. This gives the big dealer a lot of room to move
around in.
You know ... the Government blunders into stupid mistakes
because they have no background of experience on which to
draw.

The first time prices control was imposed in the colony was
during the first world war.
Flour and grits were the principal items covered by the
protection but it was necessary to place the ceiling so high that
the late Mr. T. G. Johnson, who was then the largest grocery
merchant in the island, became a wealthy man.
When the competition was left to determine the price of goods,
Mr. Johnson was just another struggling Bay Street merchant!
I had some experience with prices control when I served on a
committee with Major Goldsmith, a member of the fabulous
Rothschild family who lived in Nassau during the second world
war. He owned a hotel in Paris to which he returned after the
war. He died only recently.
In order to protect the little merchant over the hill, once again
the big merchants will find themselves making a profit on some
ceiling items that was not possible under normal competition in
trade.
And, of course, the people are being fooled by Government
propaganda into believing that their interests are being protected.
This is only a smoke screen to divert the people's attention
from the fact that their eyes are being gouged out of theii heads
by a heartless Government who have certainly taken care of
themselves in the process.

The battle now going on between the Government and doctors
at the Princess Margaret Hospital is interesting.
For the first time these men find themselves being brhiought
under political pressure by the Government.
Because of political pressure, Bahamian Dr. Cecil Bethel

Uganda's Amin wants



reporters to forget past
By Andrew Torchia


ENTEBBE, UGANDA, (AP)
president. You must work very
very proud about it."
These were the words of Idi
Amin w.ho spoke sincerely
about the two years since he
led a military coup and took
over as President of Uganda.
In those two years,
thousands of Ugandans have
been slain in tribally or
religiously inspired massacres.
Asians and most westerners
have been thrown out or fled.
Uganda has tottered from crisis
to crisis under an army that
rules without law.
Yet there was Amin, smiling
in a dark, banker-type suit and
red suspenders, sweating in the
sunshine on the vast, sloping
lawn, and telling the newsmen
he had invited to the
ivy-coloured presidential
mansion "the people here in
Uganda know what I am doing.
It is what they want."
Hawks circled high over the
fish pond and Lake Victoria
glinted serenely in the distance.
Soft drinks were served. It was
a startling contrast for a
newsman who, arrested while
reporting a guerrilla invasion
six months ago, had spent
three days in a Ugandan
military prison from which
some men did not come out
alive.
Uganda is like that calm
on the surface, in turmoil
beneath. A visitor expecting
trouble can't believe what he
sees women hoeing corn
while men lounge in doorways,
barefoot children waving at
passing cars,, a primitive
sculptor at the roadside stand,
crowded stores and gasoline
stations in Kampala with
hardly a soldier in sight, white
visitors drinking beside a hotel
swimming pool -- normal
scenes in equatorial Africa.
Amin is like that, too a
6-foot-4, 250-pound,
47-year-old man as awkward as
a teen-ager about where to put
outsize hands and feet.
DROP OUT
A country-born President
who dropped out of primary
school and can express only
the simplest ideas in English,
but is trying to learn Arabic
and French. A sinsiter Li'l
Abner who nearly makes you
believe it when he says, "I
consider everybody in the
world our brothers and sisters.
I am not against anybody."
You nearly forget the
kidnapping and multilations
under Amin that, on a smaller
scale, recall the savage
disorders in the Congo a
decade ago.
From the viewpoint of
Amin's fellow Moslems,
military officers and other
Ugandans who have survived
the purges, Anmin's
accomplishments are
considerable.
He's establishing a Moslem
elite in a predominantly
Christian country. lie's shaken
off moral condemnation from

hard. I like it very much. I am

the western world and
attempts to assassinate or
overthrow him.
While African neighbours are
shocked at dominant foreign
business interests, Amin solved
the problem with swift
evictions and take-overs. More
than any other leader, he has
shaped the current "Africa for
Africans" mood on the
continent.
"No country in the world is
controlling Uganda," Amin
said. "Very many Africans
regard me as a hero."
In an effort to improve his
reputation in the rest of the
world, Amin spent nearly three
hours with foreign newsmen on
a recent afternoon. "Forget the
past," a cabinet minister told
an apprehensive reporter who
had been stripped and searched
by plainclothesmen on his last
visit to Uganda.
What Amin said was less
revealing than how he said it.
It would be hard to hold a
grudge against this former
athlete, proud that in his prime
he could run 100 yards in 9.8
seconds.
No one is more earnest thar
Amin when he says, "you must
have a brain and work very
hard to be President. You have
to think before you take any
decision."
You have to admire his
deadpan humour when he
deliberately likens British
Prime Minister Edward Heath
"I like him very much. lie is
tough" to Hitler, waits for
the shock to show on listeners'
faces, then grins and says he
meant all along to compare
Heath and Winston Churchill.
NOT AFRAID
lie means it when he says
he's ready to sacrifice his life
for his country but is not
afraid because he has already
dreamed when he is going to
die.
A military sense of destiny
comes across "1 don't refuse
anybody to oppose me but not
at this time. We are building
the country.
"We must work very hard.
We must not depend on people
to come to help us. I have
really a lot of things to do. I
got so many things ahead of
me."
Amin's presidential style
appalls sophisticated foreign
diplomats, who talk
disparagingly of his "peasant
cunning" and of his
government "a bunch of
third-graders sitting around
trading knowledge." A
champion boxer, Amin seems
to face the most complex
issues of state as he once faced
opponents in the ring, daring
them to conime out and fight.
"I am not afraid of
anything," lie said. "As
President, you must not be a
coward."


recently felt obliged to resign his appointment as Chief of Medical
Staff at the hospital. His place has been filled by an Australian.
As you well know. I have no objection to foreigners filling
positions in the colony. Indeed, I feel that we need foreigners in
the islands if our whole society is not to become stunted at an
islandish level. But this whole affair seems incongruous in the
light of the concerted drive for Bahamianization claimed by the
Government!
The sad part of this whole affair is that some of the doctors
who are now feeling the heel of their new masters helped to forge
the manacles that are now being closed around their wrists
Too late, too bad, too sad, boys. As educated men you should
not have allowed your prejudices to hoodwink your intelligence.

At the company's annual
meeting on February 28
shareholders approved a
proposal to split the company's
stock on a 2 for 1 basis.
In their report to
shareholders, C. F. Harrington,
chairman, and K. A. White,
president, reported continued
expansion of Royal Trust's
national and international

"We share the enthusiasm of
the business community in
general with regard to
prospects for 1973", they said.
"There is considerable
buoyancy in all areas of our
own operations and we expect
that this condition will prevail
throughout 1973, with an
increasing demand for our
services from more and more
people."
The company reported that
with the exception of estates,
trust and agencies, there were
major increases in income from

Air Canada's
record season
FREEPORT: DURING the
winter season Air Canada flew
more visitors to Freeport than
for the whole of 1971.
Suntours and Air Canada
signed an agreement last year
in which Air Canada
contracted to bring Suntours
ITC passengers from Toronto,
Montreal, Ottawa and Halifax.
This ITC programme has been
very successful and created an
influx of Canadians to
Freeport surpassing all
expectations, an Air Canada
release said.
During the winter season Air
Canada with its regular
scheduled DC-8 serving
Toronto and Montreal and
charters from those cities, as
well as Ottawa and Halifax,
brought 16,500 Canadians to
Freeport. This is 61% more
visitors to Freeport by Air
Canada for the same period in
1972.
Air Canada this summer will
operate six DC-8 flights per
week to Toronto and Montreal,
and will also operate three
charters per week for Suntours.

CHRIST CHURCH
THE JOHN Hodgins Singers,
regarded as the finest girls
choir in Canada, is to present a
concert of sacred music at
Christ Church Cathedral on
Easter Sunday at 8.45 p.m.
The concert will be under
the direction of Mr. John M.
Hodgins. Mr. Hodgins has been
described as the finest choir
trainer in Canada.
The outstanding reputation
Mr. Hodgins has achieved has
been due to the success of two
choirs under his direction. The
men and boys' choir of Grace
Church On-The-Hill, in
Toronto, where Mr. Hodgins
was organist-choirmaster, had
the distinction of being given a
three-week singing engagement
in Westminster Abbey. They
also performed at the
Edinburgh Festival.
The other, which he led to
even greater international
recognition is a girls choir, the
John Hodgins Singers.
In 1953, this choir took part
in the "Coronation Tour" and
was also privileged to sing in
Westminster Abbey and the
great Cathedrals of England
and Scotland St. Giles,
Cantebury, Wells, Salisbury,
Winchester, St. Paul's, York
and many others.
Another group toured
Britain in 1958 and besides
singing recitals, attending the
International Eisteddfod in
Wales and appearing in Scottish
television, were also presented
to Queen Elizabeth, and Prince
Philip at Buckingham Palace.
The choir once again
represented its country at the
New York World's Fair and
was a major attraction at Expo
'67 in Montreal.
Over the years, the John
Hodgins Singers have given
many concerts and have been
featured in the B.B.C. and
C.B.C. radio, and Canadian
television. They have been
guest artists with the Toronto
Symphony Orchestra on many
occasions notably in the
Children's Crusade, the St.
Matthew Passion, A ceremony
of Carols and Joan of Arc, by
Honegger.
A collection will be taken to
assist in out-of-pocket expense
for the choir.

DEAR ABBY: That Waterloo, la., man who shot and
killed a poor little squirrel while te squirrel was eating from
a bird-feeder shoudd have been reported to the police.
I the first place, It's against the eaw to we a gun
withi the city Mlmt Wa M i* And In he second place,
It's against the law to hunt squirrels out of season-which
is only a few weeks in the fall. And in the third place, I'll
bet that man didn't have a bunting license in the first
place. 'ti r
I'm from Waterloo, so .I -old know.
NAME WITHHELD ON REQUEST
DEAR ABBY: I cried when I read about the man who


The national squirrel debate


shot and killed a hungry squirrel while it was eating from a
bird-feeder. It reibafed me of a squirrel that used to come
into our yard nearly every day. We named him Freddy. At
first he was timid, but after he knew he could trust me he
would come running to me when I called him, and he would
actually eat out of my hand. How be loved cubes of bread
covered with peanut butter!
One day an old crab of a neighbor caught Freddy
burying a nut in his yard, so he hit him with a two-by-four
and stunned him. Then he proceeded to beat that poor little
creature to death with the two-by-four. I was told all this
by a neighbor who saw the whole thing. My heart ached for
a week.
I am not going to make friends with any more squirrels
that come into my yard because I think Freddy lost his
fear of man when I became his friend, and that trust cost
him his life.
I enjoy your column. Some of those letters are hard to
believe-but then who would believe a man would beat a
squirrel to death? MISSING FREDDY


Potatoes: baked, boiled, fried or mashed


BAKED, BOILED, FRIED,
MASHED the ways to cook
the potato are endless. This
versatile tuber can be served a
different way for practically
every meal and still the long
list of recipes goes on and on.
Now is the time to experiment
since potatoes are available in
large quantities at the Potter's
Cay Produce Exchange.
The potato was brought to
Europe in the 16th Century
from Peru by the Spaniards.
The French took a liking to it
and elevated it to gourmet level
with their usual expertise in
the field of imaginative
cooking.
The most common way to
serve potatoes is boiled but try
these recipes for stuffed baked
potatoes to add a different
touch to your menus.
The ordinary baked potato
can be easily transformed from
an everyday vegetable to a
gourmet's delight by merely
putting a few extras with
Nature's already splendid
creation. Here are a few
variations on the theme.
The standard way to bake
potatoes is to place them in a
400 degree oven for about an
hour or until easily pierced
with a cooking fork. They
must be thoroughly washed
before baking and can be
brushed with oil or wrapped in
foil. When the potatoes are
done, cut a thin slice from the


top of each and carefully scoop
out the pulp into a bowl. Mash
the pulp well with butter and
the various additions and
spoon it back into the shell..
Mash the pulp with two egg.
yolks, cream, butter, and
pepper and salt to taste. Fold
in two stiffly beaten egg whites
and replace the mixture in the
shells. Bake at 350 until the
tops are lightly browned.
MASHED
Mash the pulp of six baked
potatoes with six tablespoons
milk, four tablespoons butter,
half a cup grated cheese. Add
celery salt and pepper to taste.
Mix well and return the pulp to
the shells. Bake at 400 degrees
until browned.
Mash the pulp of six baked
potatoes. In a skillet, saute half
a pound shredded cooked beef
in. . butter. Add four.
tablespoons flour and mix well
with the butter and beef. Add
two cups milk and stir until
thickened. Add the mashed
pulp and season with pepper.
Refill the shells and bake at
350 until hot.
Madh the pulp of six large
baked potatoes and add a cup
of light cream heated, six
tablespoons butter, three
cooked and pureed carrots, and
a tablespoon chopped dill. Mix
well and fill the shells. Dot
with butter and brown under
the broiler.
Mash the pulp with half a
cup crumbled bacon bits, a cup
of sauted minced onions, salt
and pepper to taste. Refill the


shells and dot with butter.
Heat at 375 for 15 minutes and
sprinkle with chopped chives.
Puff the baked potatoes by
adding half a cup light cream,
salt, pepper and nutmeg to
taste and six beaten egg yolks
to the mashed pulp. Stiffly
beat four egg whites with a
pinch of salt. Fold them into
the pulp mixture and fill the
reserved shells. Bake at 400 for
15 minutes or until puffed and
browned.
Mash the pulp of six baked
potatoes with six tablespoons
butter, a cup of cheese sauce, a
cup of chopped cooked
spinach and. salt, pepper and
nutmeg to taste. Return the
mixture to the shells and
sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
Brown under the broiler.
SAUTE
In a skillet, saute two
chopped onions. Add two cups
tomatoes, four tablespoons
tomato paste, a small tin of
drained chopped mushrooms,
salt and pepper to taste.
Simmer until the mixture
thickens. Mash the pulp of six
bad potatoes and mix in a
of the tomato-onion
uce. Return the pulp to the
,hells and reheat in a 350 oven.
ipoon the remaining sauce
bver the potatoes and serve.
Mash the pulp of four large
baked potatoes with four
tablespoons butter, three
tablespoons milk, two egg
yolks and the grated ring of

DEAR ABBY: I am not for killing anything except la
self-defense, but squirrels can be a real nuisance.
I once had a fairly tame s'urrel come into my yard
regularly to get s walow seeds trom my bkM edr.
naughty squirrel damaged my expensive new ede.r with
his sharp teeth and claws. At first I was very angry. The
I realized that the poor little thing must have been
hungry he just had to get at those sunflower seeds som
way.
I didn't shoot him, but I did put VMaue oe the poe aa
he couldn't climb the feeder. LOVES ANIMALS
DEAR LOVES: The pow thing probably weat isquly
with frustration trying to elub that feeder pole.
Problem? Yeo'B fel btter you get eR ytMr et.

Precision is basically a natMural
system, though many gadgets
and conventions have been
granted on to it. One o0 the more
amusing is the 20 opening, a
direct descendant of the Homan
20.
2dubject to on3 or two minor
exceptions this shows a 4-4-1-4
or 4-4-0-6 shape with the short-
age In diamonds. The minmumn
strength is 11 points.
The only forcing response is
2NT, calling tor more iniorma-

ficial as the opening, tells the

Sweeting &


Prince Will


in big clash


tomorrow
By GLADSTONE THURSTON
C. C. SWEEPING HIGH
took another win into
Volleyball City yesterday when
their senior boys increased
their undefeated record to
four in a 15-0, 15-3 and 15-1
victory over Government High
School. Sweeting now stand
poised and ready for their clash
with defending champions
Prince Williams High tomorrow.
Prince Will is also undefeated.
G(ong into the first game, C
C used only three services
that of Mathew Leckey, Denis
Forbes and Max Smith to
stop (;.ll.S. Forbes and Leckey
served two and three points
respectively before hitting the
hall into the net. Smith rattled
off the remaining ten points
including four aces.
Foot faults and inaccurate
serving were against (;.lI.S. and
this together with the accurate
setting of Smith and the
spiking of Kevin Rolle made it
even more difficult for G.H.S.
in the second game.
Behind the serving of
Bernice Pinder G.H.S. drew
first blood and went ahead by
two points. Forbes then went
to the line for Sweeting High
and with l.eckey doing the
setting with Danny Stubbs and
Smith working the forward line
ran to a 10-2 lead. However, a
well bumped ball by Eardly
Moss through C. C.'s blockers
broke the service,
(.ll.S. was able to get only
one point in their service and
Ray Johnson at the line for
Sweeting led them to victory
with the remaining five points.
Again (;.h.S. got the first
point in the third game but
with spiker Bradley Cooper
coming in to strengthen the
front line C.C. began to gel and
with good bumping spiking and
setting the team rallied on to
victory. Actually, they looked
more like the team coach Tom
Grant was trying to put
together for Prince Will.

Defending Eastern Division
Champions St. Augustine's
College drilled the rookie team
of L. W. Young 15-0 and 15-2
yesterday to win their second
in as many played.
S.A.C. in their first game
defeated St. Anne's College
15-8 and 16-14.
Franklyn Thomas and
Godfrey Waugh combined for
eight points before L.W. Young
got their first two. Jeffrey
McIntosh then took the line
and paced S.A.C. to victory.
In the second game
Nehemiah McPhee started
things off with his four point
service. Young High, unable to
score on the turnover saw
Trevor Roberts contributing a
nine point service that put
S.A.C. ahead 13-0. Robert
Neymour gave S.A.C. the
remaining two winning points.

Will let Set upset big


bats in Big 0 tonight?

By GLADSTONE THURSTON
JET SET "THE UPSETTERS" one of two rookie teams of
the Bahamas Baseball Association's 1973 series looking forward
to a successful season surprised everybody when they bounced
from the bottom of the tables to second place in the league with


an eight and three record.
Jet Set play one of their
toughest games tonight when
they take on league leaders Big
Q Market at 9:30 p.m. In the
first game, Becks Bees seek a
win against last place Heastie
Lumber.
"We're a young team and
we are making mistakes as we
go along but we hope to
improve our club for next
year." commented Jet Set's
c coach Kenneth Woods.
However, they are still going all
out for the win this season.
Entering the league with 14
rookies, "the other teams had
us down for potcake but we
know we have a club to win,"
said Woods. And Jet Set has
already proved the potency
behind their skills by defeating
two of the top teams Becks
Bees and Del Jane Saints. They
are presently on a six game
winning streak.
Besides their 14 rookies, Jet
Set has acquired the services of
eight players from the now
defunct Vat 19 team, one from
Paradise Island and another
from the Kentucky Saints.
They are also in the process of
acquiring thfee new players
one of whom is Flamingo A's
star pitcher Isaac Fox. The
Flamingo A's is Jet Set's
designated junior ball club.
Of the team, Woods said
"they are playing good ball
with the exception of a few
mistakes." Fox, undefeated at
the mound, has already pitched
three winning games for them.
"We don't have any trouble
with any other team," said
Woods. "As far as I am
concerned, Becks Bees for
example can make as many
errors as we can and we can bat
as well as they can."
Although they have a good
all around team, Jet Set is
basically made up of Sidney
McKinney at short, Eddie
McQuay at right, Bernard
Burrows at centre, Jean
Thompson at first, Bob Taylor
at third and Lester Gardiner
behind the plate. Besides those,
Jet Set can rely on Earl
Thompson and Greg Woodside
both out fielders and John
Dean on the infield.
Pacing them from the
.mound are Frankie Dean, Isaac


Fox and David Johnson. In
case of emergency, they can
rely on J. Thompson, Eddie
McQuay and Woods.
Concentrating on getting
their rookies in shape, Woods
said that they have been using
their rookie pitchers against
the big ball clubs to see how
they perform. So far, all has
been going well for the
Upsetters and a win against the
Marketeers tonight could mean
mother feather in their cap.

BRITON, NEW CHAMPION
LONDON (AP) Johnny Clark
of Britain cut Italian Franco Zurlo
above the left eye and on the nose
Tuesday night and pounded out a
unanimous IS-round decision for
the European bantamweight
championship, which had been
vacant.
Clark built up a big lead over the
first 12 rounds, although Zurlo won
the sixth and seventh, and then
held on as the Italian rallied in the
final tree, opening a cut over
Clark's left eye in the 13th.
Clark, who weighed 116 pounds,
won for the 34th time against three
losses and a draw as a pro. The
32-year-old Zurlo, 118, now has
29-4-3 record.

P. RICAN WINS BOUT
SAN JUAN, P.R. (AP) Puerto
Rican Esteban de Jesus, outranked
lightweight, continued his mastery
in the division with a unanimous
ten-round decision last night over
Johnny Gant, of Washington.
De Jesus, the only man to bea
world champion Roberto Duran ot
Panama, sent Gant to the canvas in
the first round for the only
knockdown of the bout.
The U.S. boxer, at least six
Inches taller and with a tremendous
advantage in reach over De Jesus
fought a defensive battle
throughout, but took advantage of
his longer reach to land several
good shots.
The Puerto Rican had Gant in
trouble several times but was never

MAJOR LEAGUES
NEW YORK, April 18
(AP)-Danny Walton,
pinch-hitter for Minnesota's
designated hitter, Bill Melton
of the Chicago White Sox,
Detroit's Al Kaline and Norm
Cash and Rick Monday of the
Chicago Cubs provided the
power Tuesday for victories in
major league baseball.
Walton ripped a
seventh-inning grand-slam
home run, keying an eight-run
outburst and igniting the twins
to a 10-5 victory over the
California Angels, and Melton's
100th career homer, a two-run
blast, ignited a five-run fifth
inning as the White Sox
whipped the Texas Rangers
10-5.
Kaline and Cash each
produced three runs with their
homers in the Tigers' 6-3
victory over the Boston Red
Sox, and Monday homered to
support Ferguson, Jenkins'
two-hitter as the Cubs beat the
New York Mets 1-0.
In the only other afternoon
game, the Philadelphia Phillies
beat the Montreal Expos 9-6.
The Red Sox got all their
Tuns on homers, two by
Carlton Fisk and one by Rico
Petrocelli.
Monday's fourth-inning
homer was one of only five hits
off the Mets' Tom Seaver.
Jenkins yielded a leadoff single
to Bud Harrelson in the first
and a leadoff single to John
Milner in the fourth.
In two 14-inning night
games Kansas City beat
Oakland 5-4 on Hal McRae's
single and Pittsburgh defeated
St. Louis 4-3 on Dave Cash's
single.
Los Angeles made it five in a
row by beating Houston 7-2. In
other games Cleveland defeated
Milwaukee 7-3, Baltimore
turned back the New York
Yankees 4-2 and Cincinnati
blanked San Diego 3-0. San
Francisco swept a
doubleheader from Atlanta
15-2 and 2-0.
