of Labour in Nassau and the
dictatorial attitudes of its
administrator, Mr. Clifford
Darling. In the same breath we
would like to state that we are
not prepared to continue
attending conferences with the
Ministry in Nassau and with no
results to report to our
frustrated brothers and sisters
in Grand Bahama.
Presently, there is quite a
disturbance existing in the
Freeport community. This
disturbance resutled after a
recent meeting we had with the
Ministry over the dismissal of
Miss Shirley Pinder employed
with Lafayette, an entity of
the Crystal Seas Group, from
its opening in January until
The disturbing thing about
the entire situation is that we
had met with the Minister and
applied for a recognition
agreement with Crystal Seas
Corlpany, and that was more
than a month ago. The only
response we get from the
Ministry upon inquiries into
the application is 'nothing has
been done.' We regard this type
of attitude as totally ignoring
the people whom we represent
and a very annoying thing to
the leaders of our organisation.
The point here is that Miss
Pinder's dismissal could have
been avoided. No reason was
given for this type of action
towards her by her employers;
and Mr. P. Bachet, manager of
Lafayette, who took this
inhuman step, cannot satisfy
the union for his actions.
We approached the
Ministry's acting Deputy
Industrial Officer, Charles H.
Tumquest, in Freeport about
the matter and after careful
research on his part into the
situation he ruled that Miss
Pinder, having been fired from
her employment for no
justifiable reason, be reinstated
on her job.
totally and disrespectfully
disregarded his ruling and
snubbed both the authority of
the Ministry and the Union.
Being surprised at the attitude
of the management of this new
store in Freeport, we again
approached the Ministry of
Labour in Nassau, but to no
We are well aware of the
'bargaining' attitude the
Ministry sometimes has, for
having dealt with them for a
number of years, many times
we were told one story was to
be kept quiet, and we were
consciously aware of the fact
that they told other parties
What we say now is that all
the story-telling stops right
here with Miss Pinder and if
something is not done about
the situation brought on her by
Mr. Bachet in the immediate
future, we will be forced to
take the situation to the
members of the union and we
will be forced by the members
to carry out whatever decision
they vote in favour of and it is
unfortunate that we cannot say
what it might turn into.
The Bahamas Hotel and
Catering Workers' Union does
not know the position with the
Ministry of Labour and Crystal
Seas, nor do we care; we will
not allow the Ministry or any
members of the union to
dictate to us, as much as we
know they would like to.
We realise that the Ministry
does not like the amount of

acting in ways to show that we
may not be able to represent
our members as we ought to.

is to say, his right to assemble
freely and associate with other
persons and in particular to
form or belong to political
parties or to form or belong to
trade unions or other
associations for the protection
of his interests.'
We do intend to act
positively and effectively for
every member of this union
and at the same time we will
not tolerate decisions from the
Ministry or anyone else that
affect the rights of our
We would like to remind the
Ministry of Labour that our
people are presently working
under heavy pressures in
establishments in Freeport and
for very little pay. This being
the case, it is totally unfair to
have uncertainty as to the
length of employment added
to this list of oppressions
especially by some newcomer
of the name of Mr. Bachet.
We are tired of a Ministry
that cannot exert its powers;
we are tired of an unorganised
Ministry of Labour in Nassau;
we are tired of a Ministry that
cannot demand respect and we
are skeptical of a Ministry that
is afraid to carry out its ruling
and act like a governing body.
The feeling of the executive

time rapped the people who

All five panellists -Mr.
Pilgrim. FNM Senator Arthur
Foulkes, the Rev. Dr. H. W.

and Mr. Basil Johnson
answered the question, "is
political corruption in high
places justifiable?" with a
unanimous and resounding
The discussion was held at
the Bahamas Teachers' College,
Oakes Field, under the auspices
of the Inter-denominational
Christian Youth Association,
and was moderated by ICYA
chairman Alfred Sears.
Mr. Pilgrim, an ICYA
member, told the audience of

in which certain contracts were
handled and gave examples of
how money could be taken out
of the Treasury dishonestly.
"This is a type of corruption
which is hard to prove but
quite prevalent," he claimed.
And he reminded the audience
that this money belonged to
them, the taxpayer.
Mr. Pilgrim referred to

"The Government admits
the revenue of the country is

Sen. Foulkes congratulated
Mr. Pilgrim for his "courage"

Mr. Brown noted that
"corruption in politics seems
to be the order of the day. It
was the rule of the 60's in our
country and in the 70's it
might make history.
"How far are we going? It is
distressing and disheartening
to see how many Bahamians
are suffering political injustice
because of their own
convictions. Let people of
conviction speak out. We are
all Bahamians and should be
treated as Bahamians first and
everything else is second."
Mr. Major flatly said
"corruption in high places is
not justified under any

French sources said Kissinger also plans a meeting with Foreign Minister

U.S. INCREASING ARMS FLOW TO PHILIPPINES
MANILA. MAY 5 (AP) The United States is speeding the flow of arms
to the Philippines on a level "just below that of Vietnam, Cambodia and
Laos" to help the government fight Moslem rebels, Informed diplomatic
sources said today.
Tihe informants said the U.S. government decided about three weeks ago
to raise the priority on arms shipments to the Philippines from below that
of Indonesia's to above that of Thailand's but the sources said the faster
flow did not represent an increase in the amount ultimately to be provided.
They said shipments were at the military assistance budget level of about
$14 million a year.
Some of the arms and ammunition represent items committed in past
years under the military assistance programme but which had not yet been
delivered, the sources said.
President Ferdinand E. Marcos has claimed his army is containing the
rebels, but knowledgeable sources said the insurgents were holding
positions they seized two weeks ago on the predominantly christian eastern
side of Mindanao.

I HAVE always puzzled power blocks .... whether they were
UBP or PLP ... in the Bahamas because they measure other men
by,their standards. Money and power were their gods. They could
not understand my indifference to both these vain possessions.
I would be a fool if I didn't recognize the usefulness of a
certain amount of money. In short, I think it is far more
satisfying to be rich than to be poor. But I have never wanted
peat wealth because I have seen the misery it brings to most
I have always wanted the trust, respect and esteem of my
fellowman .... but I have shied away from power because this too
is heartbreak in most cases.
I learned early in life that a man carries his wealth in his heart,
not his pocketbook, and that the most satisfying occupation in
life is "service above self", if I may be allowed to use the Rotary
motto to describe my values in life.
Because I have never wanted the kind of things governments
have to offer I have always been safe from the claws of scheming
I think that Goldsmith expressed the thought neatly when he
wrote that "to pursue trifles is the lot of humanity; and whether
we bustle in a pantomime, or strut at a coronation, or shout at a
bonfire, or harangue in a senate house whatever object we
follow, it will at last conduct us to futility and disappointment.
The wise bustle and laugh as they walk in the pageant, but fools
bustle and are important; and this probably is all the difference
Now let us examine the story of some of the men who sought
wealth and power in my time.
The best example .... of which most of my readers know .... is
the story of Sir Stafford Sands.
Sir Stafford came from an old and distinguished Bahamian
family. Four generations of his family had served in Parliament.
His grandfather was Sir James P. Sands, President of the
Legislative Council. But, like other families in the Bahamas, they
were comfortable but not wealthy.
Early in life Sir Stafford made money and power his single
goal. A few nights ago my wife and I went for drinks to the home
of a Bahamian living in Miami. This man's family has also had a
long and distinguished career outside the Bahamas, going back
perhaps to the time of William the Conqueror.
As a boy in Nassau he was a neighbour and companion of
Stafford. He had just left him the day Stafford lost his eye in an
accident in the yard at his father's home when he was struck by a
piece of wire.
"When Stafford was 14 years of age he told me that he was
determined to become the richest and most powerful Bahamian,"
bt said. "Already he was studying the lives of such great
ootesmen as Machiavelli, Gladstone, Disraeli and Cardinal
He achieved his aim. In the process he allowed nothing -
ppbody to stand in his way. He went through life like a
I think it is fair to say that Stafford Sands had the keenest
Iraikof .any B of hit ,,-. and this probably means all
mne edule tl period in which he lived demanded more of its
: He must be given the credit for having lifted the Bah:amas out
of a Fishing Village Economy and with building the affluent
economy the islands enjoy today.
'But in the end he over-reached and, in over-reaching, did more
than anyone else to provoke the quiet rebellion of the masses that
4ilped him and his caste off the date.
Sir Stafford lost power ... he went to Europe to enjoy his
money .... five years later he died.
And now his money has gone too. His Finnish wife sold at a
,crifice the homd on Waterloo Lake which he so highly prized
snd is now living luxuriously in Italy.
His first wife was the only daughter of Sir Walter and Lady
Ioore. They were divorced before he got a knighthood and so
Me never became Lady Sands. She and her daughter, also
Divorced, are now living in Coral Gables.
I remember Capt. Allan Kelly. He was a Harbour Islander and a
sea captain before he opened a small grocery and wholesale liquor
sore on Bay Street, where the Chinese Village Rice House is now
kicated. The old buildings were torn down and the three large
business buildings in this area were built by him when he later
l came a liquor millionaire during the bootleg boom.
His shop was tiny. I remember the fuss he made when he
introduced Danish butter to the Nassau market at one shilling
sterling a tin.
This was considered important news at the time and The
Tribune gave him a big writeup for his enterprise in bringing such
a fine product to Nassau at a reasonable price.
SPrior to this grocery shops sold butter out of large unsanitary
tabs under the counter. You could buy as little as a penny half
penny (3 cents) worth. The sanitary Danish tins were considered
a great advance by those who could find a shilling.
As a small boy I delivered The Trbune to Capt. Kelly's house.
H1 lived on the second floor of a building on Bay Street near
Deveaux Street. There were so many holes in the floor of the
verandah that I had to step carefully when I went to deliver the
Because he had a small liquor store Allan Kelly got in on the
ground floor of the bootleg business. Roland Symonette (now Sir
Roland) dealt with him. Roland Symonette got in early too
because he had a fast motor boat in which he was engaged in king
fishing for the Miami market.
As a result of this alliance they both became millionaires.
SThe story of the Kelly family from that point on is one of
vanity and bitter frustration. Captain Kelly, his wife and two
daughters died under unhappy circumstances.
It has often been said that had his daughters been ordinary
shop clerks they would probably still be alive and happy today.
That could have easily happened because the girls were younger
'.No trace of the Kelly fortune is left in the Bahamas today. It
t leWft the Bahamas after the death of the girls.
' I remember George Murnhy, an Irish-American who came to
Nassau with a shipload of American Rye Whisky early in the
SHis story .... before he came to the Bahamas and up to the time
pf his death in Nassau .... would fill a book. He served In the
Hbtse of Assembly and Legislative Council and became a power
n, the colony.
: `Hi was a story of constant reaching for an elusive prize ....
ies disappointment .... and death.
:'He made a great fortune., There is a tragic story I could tell in
this connection but I won't. I may bring it out in a book later on.
Anyway, suffice It to say that his money seems to have been a
otUre to everyone who has touched it.
': remember Sir Walter Moore.
cb cume from an old Bahamian family of very moderate
means. His father died when he was young. His mother supported
him and his two sisters with a bakery at Parliament and Shirley
Streets. The girls served in the shop. Walter peddled the bakery's
products in an open basket.
Sir Walter made money legitimately in the export of sisal,
shells and other marine products. He and his wife and three
chfdren lived in a modest house in Victoria Avenue. He was one
of the first people in Nassau to own a motor car ana a Victor
phonograph (a Victrola).
Sik Walter became a member of the House of Assembly for the
Grand Behama-Bimini district.
I remember the late Hon. W. C. B. Johnson, the most powerful
politician of his day, chiding him for his poor attendance at the
Walter Moore had a happy family life. His children were the
envy of many. They seemed to have everything a child might
desire, including the undivided devotion of their father.
At the time Sir Walter had just bought a Victor talking
machine and he told Mr. Johnson that he and his family were too
happy at home with their music 'or him to leave them at night.
Then he would start humr.mg "Silver Threads Among the
Gold". This seemed to be his favourite tune.
By a strange twist of fortune he became suddenly very wealthy
.... legitimately, of course. The market for sisal had failed. He had
a great pile of this fibre stored sway and rotting. He was in a bad
way financially when the first world war came and he sold his
entire stock of sisal at a tood price.
As a good Methodist he did not touch liquor or indulge in any
such frivolities. But now he was wealthy he bought himself a
grand house, he got caught up in the social swirl, he went to the
top in politics, he learned to drink liquor and liked it too much.
In the end the Duke of Windsor, war-time Governor of the
colony, felt obliged to suggest that he should resign his
appointment as President of the Legislative Council.
I remember the night he presided over his last meeting of the
Legislative Council. I was standing at the foot of the stairway
when he descended the steps on the arm of his wife.
And I thought ... what an awful tragedy!
It brought only misery to his family for whom he seemed to
develop hatred in the end because he left his entire estate to his
two maiden sisters for the duration of their lives and then to the
I remember the Hon. Harcourt Malcolm, C.B.E. He was
Speaker of the House and considered the leading lawyer
practising at the Bahamas Bar when I knew him. The town spoke
of him as their "prince".
He made money in his practice but his only ambition in life
was to be .... like his father .... the Chief Justice of the colony and
a knight. But for reasons I have already recorded in one of my
earlier stories, these prizes eluded him.
His case is interesting because of the way he disposed of his
estate. He left it in trust to provide scholarships for Bahamian
He didn't specify in his will what section of the community he
would want to benefit from his bequest but he thought he was on
safe ground when he provided that the President of the
Legislative Council (now Senate) and the Speaker of the House
should be two of the three trustees of the will.
Today both the President of the Senate and the Speaker of the
House of Assembly are black men!
I remember when I was making a will I expressed a desire to
establish a trust for The Tribune that would stretch to the end of
I suppose I was thinking of Hitler's desire to build a Reich that
would last thousand years .... or perhaps I believed it was
possible for my family to follow the pattern of the great
Rothschild clan ... a desire that was perhaps the greatest folly of
My brother Eugene, who was drafting the will, gently reminded
me that no man can hope to project direction of his material
possessions too far beyond the grave. He said that the law had
recognized this fact and therefore limited the period during which
a man could exercise control over his material possessions after
Frank Holmes, a remarkable man, was another interesting case.
His father was the Hon. Dr. F. A Holmes, Speaker of the House
of Assembly. He was our family doctor and attended my mother
during the delivery of all her babies.
Frank Holmes was not a wealthy man but he was proud. His
deportment would be worthy of a proud old English baron. When
he walked down the street you would think from his bearing that
he possessed the earth. And when the slightest thing offended his
dignity his moustache-. seemed to bristle with indignation.
Mr. Holmes never indulged in frivolities. Everything had to be
done the proper way .... and precisely on time. If he was to have a
midday whisky and soda the butler had to appear with the tray
every day precisely at noon.
He had no really close friends. Because of his rigid manners his
associates spoke of him as the Duke of Nausea.
I was perhaps nearer to him than anyone towards the end of
his life because he had completely withdrawn from the social
I attracted his interest because he prided himself on being a
writer. For years he had written the editorials for The Nassau
Guardian aid after the first world war he wrote a history of the
Bahamas War Contingents.
When I knew him he had broken from The Guardian and he
took an interest in my writing because he felt it had spirit and a
rare quality. I was often at his house.
One day he told me that he was tired of living. He said he had
tasted of every pleasure that life could afford and that now
nothing was left because everywhere he went even to
Government House he met the crude newly rich "bootleg"
crowd with whom he refused to associate. Because of this fact he
refused all Invitations to Government House.
Ui | Illi I |I l r
A year later .... early in July 1928 .... he died from a stroke of
paralysis. I found that at the time he spoke to me about being
tired of living he had made a will in which he left me a few of his
personal things, some of his books and a collection of the
editorials he had written for The Guardian.
His home, in which he took a great deal of pride, is now the
home of The Golden Dragon, a Chinese restaurant.
And in a couple of months time the Hon. Milo Butler will

The Hon. D. A. Brice's house on Shirley Street came into the
possession of his American son-in-law, Ralph Collins.
The Brice property was the largest in the centre of the town. It
extended from Shirley Street, opposite The Tribune, south
almost to Wulff Road.
D. A. Brice was dead when the 1929 hurricane blew the house
By this time Mr. Collins was rolling in money garnered from
the bootleg "industry". And he proceeded to build a mansion on
the site of the old house. He brought special materials from
distant places in the world for this house.
I remember that he spent hours every evening driving around
the block and viewing his new house from every conceivable
Because of his new wealth he became a member of the House
and the Executive Council and he was made an Officer of the
Most Excellent Order of the British Empire.
When he died his family was hopelessly and painfully divided.

Value of a Free
underscored by scandal
SHAKEN by one of the worst scandals
ever to erupt in any of the western
democracies in modem times, the
President of the United States stood
humbly before his nation. Mr. Nixon
apologised to journalists who had been
previously berated by his administration
and asserted that the press was indeed an
essential element in the democratic
It was a tortuous and humiliating
experience which had brought the Chief
Executive of the world's most powerful
nation to affirm this fundamental truth
which is too often either overlooked or
downgraded by governments and rulers.
"It was the system," said Richard
Nixon, "that has brought the facts to
light and that will bring those guilty to
justice a system that in this case has
included a determined grand jury, honest
prosecutors, a courageous judge and a
vigorous free press".
It was that system indeed including a
vigorous free press that had done such
a great service to the American people
and to democracy in finally ripping open
and exposing the festering Watergate
conspiracy. And, herein lies one of the
many lessons of the Watergate that we in
the Bahamas can take to heart as we
prepare for the full responsibilities of
The Watergate scandal has, perhaps,
more of the Ingredients of corruption
than any other governmental scandal in
living memory, including even the
celebrated Profumo affair. Even an
incomplete list is enough to shock the
most cynical and callous of souls:
Illegal acceptance of campaign funds,
burglary and illegal bugging of a
legitimate political party establishment,
sabotage of the democratic political
process, misuse of campaign funds,
acceptance of campaign funds from shady
sources, destruction of government files,
perjury and perhaps the most dangerous
of all, conspiracy to conceal the whole
sordid affair and to prevent the flow of
This is indeed a frightening example of
political rot which threatens to wreck an
entire administration and which will, as
has already been observed, reflect on the
credibility of governments and politicians
It must come as a traumatic shock to
the adherents of democracy to find out
that a major political group would
deliberately and consciously, at a very
high level, set up a Dirty Tricks
Department with the sole purpose of
subverting the democratic process. As if
that were not enough, the American
people were presented with the spectacle
of an executive branch which appeared at
first unwilling or unable to deal with
the affair when the first foul odours
started to seep out.
Unbelievably, the situation was even
worse than that. Top members of the
Administration were, in fact, lying about
the whole matter and attempting to cover
it up. It was at this point that the press of
the United States and particularly three
crusading journalists of the Washington
Post, made their great contribution to
that nation and to the journalistic
Spokesmen for the Nixon
administration, most notably the Vice
President, had long chastised the
American press in general, accusing
journalists of unfair reporting, bias,
malice, treachery and all sorts of things.
In the Watergate matter, Barry
Sussman, Carl Bernstein and Bob
Woodward of The Post experienced the
particular wrath of White House
spokesmen because they dared to do their
duty in digging up and publishing
information about what appeared to
them to be a public scandal..
Since these three journalists,
particularly Bernstein and Woodward, are
comparatively young and inexperienced,
considering the important beat they are
assigned to cover, it must have been an
agonizing experience for them to
withstand the abuse and condemnation
which emanated from the very centre of
It must have taken unusual courage for
them to carry on in the face of charges of
misrepresentation, unprofessionalism and
even character assassination which was
hurled at them with mounting frequency
and chilling pointedness.
Were they mischief-making upstarts
who were using the power of the press to
cast aspersions on powerful and
respected men? Even some of their
colleagues in the profession, according to
one pt blication, confessed some nagging
doubts before e the whole matter was
brought to a head.
Now, in the full light of exposure, it
appears that The Post trio were
performing as dedicated, professional
journalists whose main objective was not
maliciously to destroy characters and to
put down the mighty, but merely to find
the truth and to present that truth to the
public whom they serve.
All those in the journalistic profession,
particularly those who are from time to
time unfairly set upon by powerful men,
must feel a sense of pride and vindication
in the accomplishments of their
courageous colleagues of The Washington
Post. And now is a good time to restate
the principle of freedom of the press,
which is an indispensable element of any
democracy and which must be recognized
and treated as such in our own country if
democracy is to survive in an independent
Except for the stranglehold which the
present Government exercises over the
radio, the press in the Bahamas so far is
relatively free though somewhat
disadvantaged. There have been, however,
disturbing statements made which would
indicate that high-ranking members of
Government do not have a full
appreciation of the rote of the press in
our society and for the need to preserve
freedom of the press.
Perhaps a simple point needs to be
made, and that is this: Freedom of the
press relates not only to the freedom of
expression of those who operate the
press. It relates also to the right of the
individual citizen to know and to
understand what is happening around
him. particularly with regard to the
functioning of government.
If the free press is destroyed, then it
will follow as surely as the night follows
the day, that democracy is also destroyed
since there can be no real democracy if
the citizen is deprived of the free flow of
The Government, rather than merely
tolerating the existence of a free press,
should, as a matter of policy, determine
to do what it can to strengthen the
tradition of press freedom in this
country. It should accept the fact that
the press will sometimes make mistakes
and it should also accept the fact that
rascals will be found from time to time in
the ranks of the Fourth Estate as indeed
they are found time and again in the halls
Once that understanding is arrived at
and accepted, the people of the country
will be the ones tobenefit. They will then
be assured that there is mutual respect
between all the estates of democracy and
that the press will never become a
conspirator with any government in
hiding the truth from them however
painful that truth might be.
Richard Nixon, with more than a
touch of irony, now tells the press: "You
must give me hell whenever you think I
That was his way of saying: "Now I
appreciate the motivation of dedicated
journalism. Now I understand how
corrupted the nation would become
without the healthy criticism of a
vigorous press. Now I realize that a free
press is as fundamental to democracy as a
freely-elected government. '

an independent Bahamas if those who
govern us now and in the future would

DEAR ABBY: I am a S4-yearwold single rl and have
my own apartment. When I go out on a date and we wIn
up the evening at a rather late hour, the fellow will start
with, "Man, am I ever tired. You're lucky you don't have
to drive dear across town to get home tonolgt."
I usually say something like, "I sure am," whereupon
they feel smaubbed and get even leo subtle and start pree-
-uring me to let them sleep on my couch, etc., etc.
Abby, that kind of situation makes me feel uncomforta-
ble, but I really haven't bit upon a nice way of saying,
"Sorry, but no." Then again I wonder what harm there
would be in letting them sleep on my couch. I do feel sorry
for them because they ARE tired, and it is a long drive
across town. Can you help?

other three are girls in their teens.
My sister In law reminds me of some kind of inact I
have read about. They eat their young.
She is constantly subjecUrg her children to the third
degree. She even demands to know exactly what was said
and done when any of her adult sns have been in the
company of a female from 14 to 70 years of age. She goes
thru their mail, wallets, purses, and she even listens in on
their telephone conversations. [She brags about it.)
Don't say her husband should take a stand. He Is afraid
to open his mouth to her.
It is painful for me to see this possessive and dominat-
ing woman emasculate her sons and drive her daughters
away from her. Is there anything I can do?
DEAR UNCLE: If she won't listen to her husband, she
we't listen to you. But do offer your friendship and mnder.

PROPERTY TAX FOR THE YEAR 1973 -
DUE ON 1st JANUARY, 1973.
The attention of the public is drawn to the fact that the statutory
surcharge prescribed by Section 15 of the Real Property Tax Act 1969 is
now being added to all unpaid balances of Property Tax for 1973, other than
those of taxpayers who have previously elected to pay by quarterly
instalments (see below).
Notices stating the amount of the additional charge and the new balance
payable will be issued towards the end of April and, for those persons with
post boxes, will be forwarded to the Post Office for distribution. Those
persons, without post boxes are requested to collect their notices at the
Public Treasury, Churchill Building. All such notices, which have not been
collected by 7th May, will be placed in general delivery mail.
PAYMENT BY QUARTERLY INSTALMENTS
The Act provides that an intention to pay by quarterly instalments shall
be indicated by the making of at least one quarterly payment on or before
date on which the annual tax falls due. Those taxpayers who exercised this
option and who have post boxes should have already received a
notice reminding them that the second quarterly instalment of tax became
payable on 1st April, 1973, and stating the amount due.

there can be great success in this chart. Stress specialized fields
to avoid a Jack-of-all-trades.

Wendell Newton gains TKO in 6th.
after flooring US boxer four times
By GLADSTONE THURSTON
BAHAMAS HEAVYWEIGHT KING Wendell Newton found it easy going last night and didied
out to his Pennsylvanian opponent Willie Price a recipe of devastating left hooks and Jabs, showing
the American the canvas four times within two rounds before gaining a technical knockout victory
in two minutes and thirty seconds of the sixth round.
"He was just too fast for
me," said Price after the fight
as, for half an hour in the
dressing room, he sat
dejectedly trying to recollect
his thoughts. "It's hard to say
right now," sighed Price
concerning what was up for
". him in the near future. In
effect, he lost the proposed

will be considered for a bout at

WEMBLEY. ENGLAND (AP) Sunderland, the 250-1 longhot, upset
Leeds United 1-0 at Wembley Stadium for the English Soccer Cup
Saturday, the first time in 42-year a second division team has captured the
symbol of British soccer supremacy.

antagonizing effect on Price.

Like this, Price was unable to
land a blow.
It was not until midway in
the fourth round that Newton
began to utilize his potent
right. As a matter of fact, his
left was doing so much damage
that when the right really came
into play it was just a matter of
time for Price.
Price in the fifth was far
behind in points but his
determination kept him going.
This meant nothing to Newton
who peppered his opponent
with a series of combinations
and Price was going his way. A
weakened Price took a stinging
right to the head and went
down on the knee. After taking
the count, a sharp right
followed and Price was down
again. Considerably wobbly on
his feet Newton went for the
third knockdown that would
have ended the bout but the
bell saved him.
Price recovering from the
fifth again tried for the
comeback and passed a close
uppercut to Newton's jaw. This
did not deter the Bahamian
who sensing victory, powered
another right to Price's head
that sent him down for the
third time. Price got up only to
be sent down again for the
fourth time as second Chris
Malakius threw in the towel and
referee George Wilmore
stopped the bout.
"He (Price) was a little faster
now than he was last time."
