POLICE SEEK MURDERER BELIEVED INJURED

IN WESTWARD VILLAS KILLING





Police intensify search






for Diane Ashton killer


Ulrtbunt


Thursday,


rafter terrific fight'


A "TERRIFIC FIGHT" was put up in the Ashton home before Mrs. Diane Ashton
her bedroom at Westward Villas on Tuesday night.


bathroom of Cole-Thompson
Pharmacy in the Cable Beach
Shopping Centre only about
135 feet from the murder
scene had been broken into
on Tuesday night. Blood was
found in the bathroom. There
was no glass anywhere which
could have cut the intruder,
and caused the blood that was
found. The window through
which he entered had wooden
shutters.


It is now thought that the
person breaking into Cole's
Pharmacy was in search of
medication for his wounds, and
was probably the same person
who killed Mrs. Ashton. He
was unable to get into any
other section of the drugstore
because the inner doors were
bolted. He, therefore, was
forced to leave by the same
window through which he
came.


Today police intensified
their search for her killer.
From the scene in the room it
is believed that he must have
been wounded in some way
and would have blood on him.
Any member of the public
seeing anyone with suspicious
wounds either from kicks or
bites is asked to contact the
police immediately at 22561 or
22562.

FAKES TO

MISS LABOUR

DAY PARADE
COMMONWEALTH Labour
Payty leader Randol Fawkes
today said he would not be
delivering an address during
Labour Day celebrations
tomorrow as reported earlier.
Mr. Fawkes told The
Tribune he received an
invitation to deliver the
principal address at 5 p.m.
yesterday, and he is writing a
reply today explaining that he
will be unable to participate.
Others scheduled to speak at
a mass rally on Windsor Park,
Wulff Road, are Hotel Union
president David Knowles,
Teachers Union president C. N.
Curling, BEC Union president
Dudley Williams and an official
of the BaTelCo branch of the
Public Services Union.
Those participating in the
Labour Day Parade are asked
by the organizers to be at
Windsor Park no later than 9
a.m. to prepare for the 9:30
start.
The parade will march east
along Wulff from Windsor Park,
north on Collins Avenue, east
on Shirley Street, north on
Christie Street, west on Bay
Street, south on Blue Hill Road
and east along Wulff Road
back to Windsor Park, where a
mass rally and a fair are
scheduled.
In a press release issued
yesterday, organizers billed the
event as the "Labour Day and
pre-independence March."
In a "clarification," the
organizers today said that "to
avoid any misunderstanding,
the sponsors of the Labour
Day rally wish to make it quite
clear that the march has
nothing to do with
independence, but is strictly a
labour affair.

said.
As for citizens outside the
schools, these might profess to
abhor the use of marijuana
"yet if it comes to their
attention they unfortunately
adopt the attitude that 'it is
not me, let the police find out
as best they can.' "
Therefore, the Prime
Minister added, the efforts of
the police had consequently
been directed principally to
interception of drugs largely en
route to other places.
He pointed out that there
was a number of airstrips and
marinas which provided an
opportunity for traffickers to
bring in drugs for delivery here
or for transfer. Only last year,
he said, 1800 pounds of
marijuana had been found on a
schooner in the harbour.
BEING USED
"Because of our
geographical position our
islands are being used to move
drugs from one geographical
position to another."
Individuals had also been
found to be growing marijuana
in garden plots. "The police
need the fuller cooperation of
the general public in the
pursuit and arrest of those
involved in the trafficking of
dangerous drugs. Now is the
time for this effort to be
made," the Prime Minister
declared.
"For now "we are still
talking largely about
marijuana. Hard drugs have not
yet reached an appreciable
figure. The main social
problem is marijuana and if it
can be arrested at this stage a
greater benefit can be derived."
The Prime Minister said he
hoped, however, that the
committee would not seek to
establish itself as a court.
He said it was also


important to hear the
Opposition's view as the last
time the House had occasion to
discuss this subject was in 1971
when government introduced
the Dangerous Drugs Act 1971.
This included LSD as one of
these drugs and increased the
penalty on other types of drugs
classified as dangerous.
NOT DANGEROUS
The argument advanced at
that time by the then
Opposition Leader Geoffrey
Johnstone and the present
representative for St. George's
Norman Solomon was that
marijuana was not a dangerous
drug.
"I believe that marijuana is,
a dangerous drug, but the


"In all fairness they did say
we should go after the pusher
of dangerous drugs, but they
sought to exclude marijuana,"
the Prime Minister noted.
Nevertheless it was still the
government's position that
marijuana was a dangerous
drug and should be excluded
from the country.
"The penalties are strong
now in the present law and
provide for the alternative of a
fine and these are fairly
substantial, but the committee
might wish to make other
recommendations," he said.
Some countries had mandatory
prison sentences for marijuana
and hashish, the Prime Minister
added.

MILO BUTLER

RESIGNS AS

.P., PRAISED
BAINS Town representative
Milo Butler Sr. has formally
submitted his resignation from
the House of a Assembly in a
letter read to members
yesterday morning by Speaker
Arlington Butler.
Mr. Butler's resignation
becomes effective June 1, and
he will now prepare for the
duties of Governor-General,
which he will take up on
August 1.
Under the terms of the
Representation of the People
Act, the Speaker must now
inform the Chief Secretary of
the vacancy in the seat and
request the issue of a writ of
election.
When the Chief Secretary
receives the Speaker's message,
he is required "as soon as
practicable," to issue an
election writ.
However "not less than 35
days nor more than 45 days"
must elapse between issue of
the writ and its return.
This would very likely place
the date of the by-election in
the latter part of August.
LEADS TRIBUTES
Prime Minister Lynden
Pindling led the tributes paid
the Minister at the end of the
day's sitting. Present
throughout were Mrs. Butler,
members of the family and Dr.
Norman Gay, who has been
selected as the PLP candidate
to contest the Bains Town seat

fell dead of stab wounds in

The murder scene was
described today as one that
gave every evidence that Mrs.
Ashton put up a fierce fight for
her life.
IN BED
It would appear that Mrs.
Ashton was in bed when her
attacker entered. There were
signs of a fight in her bed,
which was saturated with
blood. Near the foot of the bed
a bookcase about five feet
long and three to four feet high
and filled with Agatha Christie
novels had been toppled.
The bedside lamps were on
the floor. Cosmetics had been
knocked off the dressing table.
And Mrs. Ashton's body, with
three stab wounds in the chest,
was found face down with a
pillow on top of it. She wore
shortie pyjamas. It is not
thought that she was sexually
assaulted.
It would be highly unlikely
that her attacker could have
left the,scenpe without being
kicked, scratched or bitten and
without having blood on his
person.
The blood was concentrated
in the bedroom and in the
bathroom, where it is believed
her killer might have tried to
wash up.
Mrs. Ashton was last seen
alive by her husband around 6
p.m. Monday when it is
reported that she and the
children drove him to the
airport.
Mr. Ashton, an investment
banker, was on one of his usual
business trips to New York. He
returned to Nassau late last
night after police informed him
of his wife's death. Also
arriving yesterday was Mrs.
Ash ton's elder brother,
attorney Robert Ruben of New
York and her mother.
Arrangements are being
made to send her body to the
United States for burial.
'HELP MUMMY'
Mrs. Ashton's body was
discovered by her
seven-year-old daughter, Cathy,
who ran to a neighbour's house
begging them to come and
"help Mummy and stop the
bleeding." The child went to
her mother's room about 8
a.m. yesterday.
The three children Cathy,
7, Roy, 5, and the year old
baby heard nothing of the
fight. The house is
airconditioned and the children
slept in different bedrooms.
Cathy said her mother
prepared them for bed the
night before and read to them
before tucking them up for the
night.
Diane Ashton of New York,
a former Fullbright scholar,
was described by a friend
today as "just a lovely person."
She was described as an
"outgoing friendly type" and
"very intelligent". A brunette,
Mrs. Ashton was of slight
build, about $'4" with "a
lovely figure." She was a keen
tennis player, as is her English
husband. Roy.
Mrs. Ashton's bedroom was
located at the back of the
house in the northeast corner.
One of the children's rooms
was near with a bathroom.
Another child's room was
located at the front of the
house near the road.

GOVT. SEEKS

C0VT. BONDS

ISSUE SOON
By MIKE LOTHIAN
THE IOVX yesterday
pased the IBahamas Registered
$tock Act to empower the
Finance Minister to borrow
money exclusively within the
ahamas by the issue of
Government stocks redeemable
with interest at a later date.
Similar in concept to
Treasury Bills, the stocks will,
however, be for loans in
smaller denominations over
longer periods of time.
Treasury Bills, redeemable
'hter only 90 days, are issued
duly in large denominations
and are subscribed to almost
exclusively by financial
institutions.
Finance and Deputy Prime
Minister Arthur D. Hanna,
moving for the passing of the
bill, said "it does not give the
Government a blanket cheque
to borrow money at al! times,
but gives the House a constant
watch on Government
borrowing.
"This borrowing will take
place whenever the Minister is
authorised to do so by any act
or resolution of the House."
He went on to say that the
bill provides for the
establishment of a "sinking
fund," which will be
maintained at a level sufficient
to cover principal and interest
on all outstanding stocks due
for redemption.


He said the bill requires the
Minister to appropriate money
from the consolidated fund
every half-year to redeem
outstanding stocks due for
redemption.
The sinking fund will be
administered by two trustees,
the chairman of the Bahamas
Monetary Authority and one
of the BMA directors, to be
nominated by the Minister.
SIGNIFICANT
Franklyn Wilson
(PLP-Grants Town) termed the
introduction of the bill "a
significant day in our
development of a financial
centre.
"It is doing for money
which is available long term
what Treasury Bills have done
for money available short
term," he aid.
Opposition Leader Kendal
Isaacs (FNM-Fort Montagu)
said "I have no serious
criticism about the bill."
He particularly felt that "the
establishment of the sinking
fund is a good idea, because if
one does not trust the integrity
of the Government or even its
ability to pay, the sinking fund
is a guarantee."
Admitting that he might,
just misunderstand the
situation, Mr. Isacs thought if
the sinking fund would have
enough money In it to cover all
stocks due for redemption, the
availability of that money
would make borrowing
through the issue of stocks
pointlessss"
Mr. Hanna, apparently
himself misunderstanding Mr.
Isaacs' point, in his reply only
repeated that the fund would
contain sufficient money to
cover principal and interest on
outstanding stocks, "and no
more."

tenders.
The McAlpine tender figure
was $1,517,300. The cost of
the building will be paid for
out of the reserves of the
Monetary Authority and not

legislation has already been
drafted.
Signing on behalf of the
Authority today were Mr.
Donaldson and Mr. Reginald
Wood, a director of the
Monetary Authority. Sir Robin
McAlpine signed on behalf of
McAlpines.
2-STOREYS
The two-storey building has

association with the Nassau
firm of Donald Cartwright &
Robert Stokes.
Also associated with the
design are George Cox,
structural engineers and A.B.
Dean Associates, mechanical
and electrical engineers.
Rutowski Bradford were
previously responsible for the
Post Office and the Star Plaza.
They are also the designers of
the new Bank of Jamaica.
Fronted on Shirely Street by
some 50 feet of landscaped
grounds, the new Central Bank
building is expected to be one
of the most attractive buildings
in the city.
It will be a concrete
structure with infill panels of
solar glass, and two-floor high
columns flanking the entrance.
The whole structure,
including 4,000 square feet of
vault, will occupy 25,000
square feet in its two floors. Of
this 16,000 square feet will be
occupied by administrative
offices.
The bank will contain the
Exchange Control department,
banking offices, bank
inspection department, bank
licensing, research and
personnel departments as well
as the offices of the bank
governor.
The staff of the Authority,
which now totals 60 members,
is expected to increase to


nearly 100 when the Central
Bank is completed.
The Central Bank will be the
25th major building that
McAlpines has constructed in
New Providence.

NIS LIIEL Sit
NEWARK, N .J.
(AP)-Financier Robert L.
Vesco has been directed to
appear in federal court here or
have his $10 million libel suit
against former business
associates dismissed.
The federal' government is
seeking to extradite Vesco, 37,
from his refuge in Costa Rica
in connection with a federal
indictment charging he sought
to block a Securities and
Exchange Commission
investigation of his business
interests with a $200,000
donation to President Nixon's
1972 campaign.
U.S. district court judge
Lawrence A. Whipple Tuesday
ordered Vesco to return here
for depositions within 45 days
or the court will dismiss the
suit he filed in 1971.
Vesco's suit seeks damages
from eight former associates
with whom he was involved in
a proxy fight involving
Investors Overseas Services

maligned him in an article they
had published in the Wall
Street Journal.
The SEC has filed suit
against Vesco, claiming he

a Swiss-based mutual fund
empire.
In the federal indictment,
Vesco was named along with
former U.S. Atty. Gen. John
N. Mitchell, former Secretary
of Commerce Maurice H. Stans
and former New Jersey state
Sen. Harry L. Sears.
Mitchell, Stans and Sears
have pleaded innocent to the
charges.


follows:
Whereas the Commonwealth
of the Bahamas is expected to
become independent on July
10, 1973 and
Whereas the majority of the
residents of Abaco, fearing the
general repercussions of
independence on the economy
and the general standard of
living in the country and
Whereas the majority of the
voters in Abaco felt so strongly
about it that they peaiioned
Her Majesty the Queen in July
1971 to remain a British
Crown colony in the evet of
6he Bah aas beO
independent and
Whereas the Council for a
Free Abaco has actively
campaigned for the retention
of Crown Colony status by
Abaco after the Bahamas
become independent and
Whereas 63 per cent of .the
voters of Abaco voted against
independence in the general
election of 1972 and
Whereas the government has
constantly maintained that the
majority of the people of
Abaco does not support the
retention of Crown Colony
status and
Whereas the majority of the
residents of Abaco are
suffering from a genuine fear
of victimisation, intimidation
and retaliation by this
government after independence
and
Whereas it is the
unaniinuous opinion of the
Council for a Free Abaco that
a people is entitled to the right
of self-determination and
Whereas a referendum would
appear to be the best method
of determining the true feelings
and wishes of the people of
Abaco,
Resolved that this House
approves of the holding of a
referendum by impartial
observers from Great Britain
and the U.N. in the island of
Abaco, on or before June 30,

HOLIDAY OH IHDEPEHDENCE


DESPITE the addition of
Independence Day, starting
next year Bahamians will enjoy
one less public holiday each
year following House approval
yesterday of an amendment to
the Public Holidays Act.
The amendment deletes
from the list of holidays the
Queen's Birthday (first
Monday in June) and
Commonwealth Day (May 24),
and adds Independence Day
(July 10).
Opposition Leader Kendal
Isaacs (FNM-Fort Montagu),
while raising no serious
objection to the amendment,
remarked that "we have been
short-changed on holidays."

Deputy Prime Minister
Arthur Hanna pointed out that
Britain observes neither
Commonwealth Day nor the
Queen's Birthday as a public
holiday.

ANNE & PHILLIPS IN PUBLIC APPEARANCE
LONDON (AP) Princess Anne and her fiance Lt. Mark Vhillips strolled
Into the grounds of Buckingham Palace Wednesday she to give a public
glimpse of her diamond and sapphire engagement ring and he to reveal
what its like for a commoner to ask for the hand of a Queen's daughter.
"I was petrified," said cavalry officer Phillips of his formal interview
with the Duke of Edinburgh: Anne's father. "But he was very good to
me."
His admission drew a smile from Anne, 22-year-old only daughter of the
Duke and Queen Elizabeth II and fourth in line of succession to the British
throne.
The couple, who announced their secret month-old engagement
Tuesday, stood hand-hn-hand on a Palace lawn, talked easily with court
correspondents about their love and future plans and posed for
photographers.
Then after another brief meeting with their parents inside the Palace,
they separated. Anne flew by helicopter to keep a long-standing public
engagement at Rafnage, a little village in Buckinghamshire near London.
Phillips, 24, left to rejoin his regiment, the Queen's Dragoon Guards, in
West Germany. A Palace spokesman said it was not known when they
would be able to meet again.
NEW PROBLEM PLAGUES SKYLAB
JOHNSON SPACE CENTRE (AP) A new problem plagues the Skylab
crew today as they go into the seventh day of their 28-day mission. A
Jammed solar panel has drained another six per cent of the space station's
power supply, forcing cutbacks in further experiments, and mission
commander Charles Conrad has suggested a space walk to correct the
problem.
Flight controllers say the present loss of power poses no threat to the
mission, but they say further power losses could make It difficult to
maintain the vehicle. Mission Control last night told the crew to cut an
earth resources study planned for today, and officials at the Johnson Space
Centre are studying ways of freeing the stuck solar panel to ease the power
problem. (e SEE STORY THIS PAGE)
GOVERNMENT REJECTS HIJACKERS' DEMANDS,
BOGOTA (AP) The Colombian government early today rejected the
ransom demands of two skyjackers holding a Colombian airliner on the
Caribbean island of Aruba. The masked gunmen commandeered the plane
yesterday and demanded 200-thousand dollars and the release of 140
Colombian prisoners. The Colombian airliner has agreed to pay the money,
but sources say the government is confident the air pirates will give in on
the second demand and fly on to Cuba.
The two hijackers had threatened to blow up the plane and all aboard
if the demands were not met. However, 18 of the original 89 persons on
board were allowed to leave the plane yesterday.
HALDEMAN FACES SENATE COMMITTEE TODAY
WASHINGTON (AP) Former presidential staff chief H. R. Haldeman
goes before a Senate Committee today to give his version of C.I.A.
involvement in the Watergate coverup. The closed door session follows a
statement yesterday by former Nixon staffer John Ehrlichman blaming the
Intelligence Agency for its role in the Watergate camouflage efforts. (a SEE
'STORY THIS PAGE).
In related developments, the Chairman of the House post office
subcommittee has asked the Postmaster General to look into reports that
Senator Edmund Muskle's mail was read and copied during his New
Hampshire primary campaign.
And a tentative trial date of September eleventh was set in New York
yesterday for former Attorney General John Mitchell and three
co-defendants. They are charged in connection with a secret Nixon
campaign contribution.
WHO REPLACES CANADA ON ICFC IS QUESTION
SAIGON (AP) South Vietnamese sources have indicated that Malaysia
would be an acceptable replacement for Canada on the International
Cease-Fire Commission, but the four-party peace-keeping force remains
deadlocked over the choice of a successor.
Commission member Indonesia had suggested Malaysia on the ground
Vietnam is an Asian problem. The other two Commission members are
European Poland and Hungary.
Under terms of the Paris peace agreement, the United States, North
Vietnam, the Viet Cong and South Vietnam must choose Canada's
replacement. The Canadians are pulling out by the end of July.
QUERIES ON SAN CLEMENTE DEAL STILL RIFE
WASHINGTON (AP) White House deputy news secretary Gerald
Warren says no one at the White House was aware of or involved in any
way with a bank charter application by an associate of President Nixon,
Robert Abplanalp. Abplanalp and others sought a federal charger for a
Yotkenrs, New York-based bank during the year after his undisclosed
purchase of land at President Nixon's San Clemente, California retreat. The
bank opened a little over a year ago.
I alsg has been disclosed that one of the bank's founders, William
jt uniaor, purchased two Key Biscayne, Florida lots from Nixon last
year at substantial profit to the President. Griffin is Abplanalp's attorney.
A spokesman for the U.S. Controller of the Currency said the charter
application was handled routinely, but one federal examiner found no real
need for the bank.
TANKS IN USE IN S. VIET FIGHTING
SAIGON, MAY 31 (AP) The first Communist tank attack since the
cease fire began four months ago raised fears among South Vietnamese
government officials today that a new offensive against Hue Is in the
offing.
A government communique said a tank force attacked an infantry
position Wednesday 18 miles southwest of the former Imperial capital on
the northern coast. The government said the attack was beaten back with
one tank destroyed, 15 enemy soldiers killed and one government soldier
wounded.
The communique also reported Communist gunners fired 11 S rounds of
artillery and mortar fire at three other positions west of Hue but there
were no government casualties.
Military sources said the Saigon Command was trying to determine the
strength of the tank force to assess whether the attack might herald a new
offensive against Hue.
TO REMAIN NEUTRAL IN COD WAR ROW
REYKJAVIK, ICELAND (AP) Talks between President Nixon and
French President Pompldou open in Iceland today amid signs of discord in
French-American relations. French officials said there was no advance
agreement on an order for the agenda, and White House News Secretary
Ronald Zlegler said there were no plans for release of the communique that
usually ends such conferences.
The two presidents left a preliminary meeting last night clearly
determined not to take sides in the dispute between England and Iceland
over fishing rights. White House sources reaffirmed after the meeting that
the U.S. Intends to remain neutral in the escalating cod fish war.
CUTBACK IN U.S. BOMBING OF CAMBODIA
WASHINGTON (AP) The Senate appears certain today to adopt an
amendment that would cut off funds for U.S. bombing in Cambodia.
About 200 B-S52 bombers based in Guam and Thailand have been hitting
Cambodlan targets for almost three months, and the Defense Department
has conceded that cutbacks will be necessary unless Congress authorizes
more money.
Pentagon sources disclosed, meanwhile, that B-52 runs over Cambodia
have been reduced by about one-third In recent days. The sources
attributed the cutbacks to high costs and problems of morale among the
bomber crews.

Ehrlichman said Wednesday President Nixon ordered members of
his staff to meet with CIA officials to discuss whether an FBI
investigation of the Watergate affair could expose covert


intelligence operations.
Ehrlichman spoke with
newsmen after testifying for
two hours at a closed session of
the intelligence subcommittee
of the Senate appropriations
committee.
H. R. Haldeman, former
White House chief of staff, also
was scheduled to appear but
his testimony was put off until
tomorrow.
At the meeting held June
23, 1972 Lt. Gen. Vernon
Walters, then Deputy Director
of the CIA, was instructed to
tell then acting FBI Director L.
Patrick Gray III that continued
FBI investigation of movement
of Republican campaign funds
to a Mexican bank could
compromise CIA activities,
Ehrlichman said.
Ehrlichman denied he ever
asked the CIA to provide
technical assistance in 1971 to
E. Howard Junt Jr., convicted
Watergate conspirator.
Gen. Robert E. Cushman,
CIA Director at the time, had
named Ehrlichman as the
White House official who asked
the agency to help Hunt in an
activity that later culminated
in the burglary of the office of
Daniel Ellsberg's psychiatrist.
DIERCT CONFLICT
Ehrlichman's story is in
direct conflict with that of
Cushman, who has testified that
Ehrlichman called him to
request that he give Hunt
assistance.
Cushman said in an affidavit
to a House subcommittee May
11, "about 7th. July 1971 Mr.
John Ehrlichman of the White
House called me and stated
that Howard Hunt was a bona


Mark used to

carry Anne to

secret trysts

--in a horsebox!
LONDON (AP)- The coach that
carried Princess Anne to secret
trysts with Lieut. Mark Phillips was
a horsebox.
As the Queen's daughter showed
off her diamond and sapphire
engagement ring Wednesday,
friends told of the dark, bumpy
journeys she endured so that she
and Phillips could meet outside the
public gaze.
Anne.22, and Phillips, 24,
pursued over past months by
rumour that they were more than
just good friends, arranged to meet
In a private park near Phillips' home
In Wiltshire.
Phillips would drive into the park
towing a horsebox. Inside the box,
curled up amongst the straw and
surrounded by jangling harness, was
Anne, fifth in line of succession to
the throne.
Once inside the 400-acre
Dauntsey Park the pair could stroll
together undisturbed.
"The ruse worked,' said Mrs.
Patience Sturgess, 28, whose
company director husband owns
the park and who was one of the
few people in one the secret.
"The Princess and Mark used to
play hide-and-seek with the public.
We always knew there must be a
romance," she said.
In the grounds of Buckingham
Palace. where Anne and Phillips and
their families met the Press
Wednesday, the Queen's daughter
showed off her "pretty simple"
engagement ring.
Royal jeweller William Summers
said later he was summoned to the
Palace by a telephone call some
weeks ago and took along a
selection of designs for the pair to
ponder.
OWN DESIGN
"I left them alone for several
hours and when I came back they
told me they had decided on their
own design," he said.
The price was not disclosed butl
the sapphire alone was believed to
have cost anything up to 2,000
pounds, or 5.000 dollars. The
crown Jeweller stocks rings starting
at 100 pounds 250 dollars and
rings to 75,000 pounds, or 187,500
dollars.
Anne and Phillips received their
first Wedding gifts Wednesday. Mf

fide employee, a consultant on
security matters and that Hunt
would come to see me and
request assistance which Mr.
Ehrlichman requested that I
give."
Ehrlichman said Wednesday
the White House meeting last
June 23 "was held at
President's request because the
President was legitimately
concerned about the national
security aspects."
fie said the CIA officials
were asked three questions.
First, whether there was any
CIA involvement in the
Watergate break-in. He said
they answered there was not.
Second, he said, the CIA
officials were asked whether a
vigorous FBI investigation
would uncover any past covert
CIA activities. Again the CIA
officials said it would not.
But, said Ehrlichman, when
asked whether a vigorous FBI
investigation might uncover
current covert CIA activities,
the' intelligence officials were
unable to give a definite
answer.
It was because of that, he
said, that Walters was
instructed to inform Gray of
that possibility.
DIDN'T KNOW
Asked whether the President
knew the Mexican investigation
by the FBI involved
contributions to his re-election
campaign, Ehrlichman said, "I
don't know what the president
knew."
Ehrlichman commented that
"at the time we were the
subject of very extensive
hemorrhaging in cases under
investigation by the FBI."
Extensive hemorrhaging in
cases under investigation by

Asked to comment on
reports that Gray subsequently
told Nixon he was in danger of
being "mortally wounded" by
members of his White House'
staff, Ehrlichman said he
understood Gray made the
comment after Walters told
him of "some improper
requests made of the CIA by a
White House person."
Ehrlichman initially said by
White House people, then
corrected himself and when
asked to whom he referred he
said John W. Dean III the
ousted White House counsel.
Ehrlichman said the first he
knew of CIA assistance to
Hunt was when Cushman
called him and said the agency
was anxious to terminate its
role because it felt Hunt was
going beyond his original
request. over the, 3rd graf

Wil WILL REPLACE Sk~lbatoat


CANADA IN VlET

PEACE CIUNISSIIN
SAIGON (AP) Vietnam's
peacekeeping force remained
deadlocked Wednesday as the
search began to replace Canada
on the cease-fire commission.
Several countries were
prominently mentioned
including Mexico, France,
Italy, the Scandinavians and
Malaysia.
Ambassador Michel Gauvin,
chief of the Canadian
delegation, recommended that
the replacement be an Asian
country to strike a balance
with the two Communist
countries on the commission,
Poland and Hungary. Indonesia
is the other member of the
International Commission of
Control and Supervision.
Spokesmen for the
Indonesian delegation
indicated they would welcome
Malaysia because "Vietnam is
first and foremost a Southeast
Asian problem."
Similarly, some South
Vietnamese sources indicated
that Malaysia would be
acceptable.
Pham Dang Sum, chief
spokesman for the South
Vietnamese foreign ministry,
said the choice likely would be
made through normal
diplomatic channels.
Under terms of the original
Paris Agreement, the four
signers the United States,
South Vietnam, North
Vietnam and the Viet Cong -
must select a successor for
Canada, which will leave by the
end of July.
Gauvin told the newsmen
after Wednesday's Commission
meeting that he may be unable
to assume the rotating
chairmanship of the
commission, which falls on
Canada for the month of June,
unless the current deadlock is
resolved.
The five-hour meeting made
no progress in resolving the
conflict over efforts by Canada
and Indonesia to present
reports on alleged North
Vietnamese infiltration into
South Vietnam in violation of
the Jan. 28 cease-fire.
The Canadian and
Indonesian delegations say
they have evidence from
captured prisoners that
infiltration took place after the
truce went into effect.
INVALID
The Hungarian and Polish
delegations said that since they
did not participate in the
prisoner interrogations, they
are invalid. They maintained
that investigations can only be
carried out with the consent
and participation of all four
parties in the Commission.
Canada pulled out of the
four-nation Commission
because it was convinced North
and South Vietnam inevitably
will resume fighting. Senior
Canadians said the opposing
Vietnamese parties were
drifting toward a military
rather than a political solution.
Gauvin said he did not
believe the Candaian
withdrawal would have any
significant effect on the
prospects for peace in
Vietnam.
"That depends upon the
parties to the peace agreement
and not upon the ICCS," he
said.
The Viet Cong, commenting
on Canada's pullout, said the
Canadian delegation lacked
"objectivity and impartiality"
in its Vietnam mission.
In neighboring
Cambodia, the government
announced the release of nine
associates of the former head
of state, Prince Norodom
Sihanouk.
Informed sources said the
nine were among a number of
Sihanouk's associates arrested
last March following an
unsuffessful attempt on
President Lon Nol's life, when
a renegade air force pilot
bombed the grounds of the


presidential palace.
The sources said the men
were released as a gesture of
tolerance after tne government
was unable to establish
evidence against them.


wrestle with more


power loss problems

BY Howard Benedict
SPACE CENTRE, HOUSTON, MAY 31 (AP) Skylab's
astromats and Medon Control wrestled today with a new
problem that has drained another six per cent of the pace
station's power and forced reduction of experiments.


Mission commander Charles
Conrad Jr. suggested one of the
three astronauts take a space
walk soon to try to free a stuck
solar panel and ease the power
problem.
A battery went off line late
Wednesday, the second of 18
to fail on the orbiting lab,
which has been plagued by a
series of problems since it was
launched on May 14.
The total loss of 12 per cent
of available power poses no
threat to the mission. But
flight controllers said that, if
"we lost a couple more, well
be pushing it just to maintain
the vehicle."
Mission Control Wednesday
night directed Conrad, Dr.
Joseph P. Kerwin and Paul J.
Weitz to delete from today's
flight plan an earth resources
study during a pass over the
United States. They are to shift
to additional medical and solar
observatory experiments,
which require less maneuvering
and power.
Even these alternate
experiments might have to be
cut back to conserve electricity
while Mission Control
troubleshoots the battery
problem.
RECOMMENDS
The power shortage
prompted Conrad to
recommend that controllers
seriously consider an attempt
to release the jammed solar
panel.
If the jammed panel could
be released, it would provide
12,400 watts of electricity,
more than enough to
compensate for the 500 watts
provided by the two disabled
batteries. The first battery
failed soon after launching.
The new problem developed
shortly after Conrad and Weitz
had completed the first earth
resources study Tuesday,
aiming their protosensors at a
strip of Earth running from
Oregon to Brazil.
The space lab had to be
tilted so the instruments could
aim at the Earth. That meant
the four working solar panels
were pointed away from the
Sun.
When the pass was
completed, the panels were
oriented back toward the Sun,
but this occurred in darkness,
putting an extra burden on the
batteries.
RECHARGED, BUT-
When Skylab returned to
sunlight and the solar panels
began recharging the batteries,
mission control discovered five
batteries and their regulation
had shut down.
Astronauts and controllers
were able to get four of the
batteries back on line, and they
began recharging properly. But
the fifth battery and its
regulator failed to respond.
During the first resources
study Wednesday, Conrad and
Weitz photographed with their
array of six cameras and
sensors some clouds over
Oregon, Utah's Great Salt Lake
Desert and agricultural and
mineral targets in Arizona,
IU


New Mexico and Texas.
They also were to aim at
volcanoes in Central America,
conduct an agricultural study
in Colombia and survey
Amazon River resources in
Brazil. But it was not known
immediately by the ground if
these Latin American targets
were blocked by clouds.
Another device to look at
star fields caused some trouble
when a gear jammed. The
astronauts hoped to fix it
today, their seventh day of a
planned 28 days in orbit.
The first use of the Earth
resource sensors focused on 25
sites as the spacecraft passed
over Oregon, Nevada, Utah,
Arizona, New Mexico, Texas
and then over the Gulf of
Mexico and into Central
America, Colombia and Brazil.
Projects for the 27-minute
sensor run included the study
of clouds along the Oregon
coast; a gypsum bed in New
Mexico; insect infestation and
soil types in U.S. farmlands
and soil salinity in the Rio
Grande River Valley.
Photographs from earlier
space missions have located
previously unknown water
resources and mineral deposits
and have helped correct maps
and plan urban development.
With the sensitive devices of
Skylab, scientists hope to gain
even more. The devices will be
operated frequently on the
first Skylab mission and then
later during the 56-day flight
of Skylab 2 and 3.
Weitz attempted to use an
ultraviolet camera to study
distant star fields. But he
reported that the device failed
to deploy properly and worked
to fix it The camera is
designed to study the life cycle
of stars-how they are formed,
live and die.
Skylab'i temperatures on
board leveled off Wednesday in
the mid-80s, but the astronauts
said they could work
comfortably.
"It could be a little cooler,"
said Conrad, as the crew ate
breakfast, "but I think
everybody got a feasible night's
sleep."
The astronauts, in the sixth
day of a planned 28-day
mission, also conducted some
experiments of their own.
Conrad proudly announced
to the ground that he was able
to run upright around the
inside of the can-shaped orbital
workshop area of Skylab.


HIJACKERS HOLD

69SS HOSTAGE
BOGOTA, COLOMBIA, May
31 (AP)-Two masked hijackers
carrying su b-machine guns held
a Colombian airliner and 69
hostages today at the Aruba
Airport, demanding safe
conduct out of Colombia to
Cuba for 140 leftists.
The hijackers
commandeered the four-engine
Electra turboprop on
Wednesday and ordered it to
fly to the Caribbean island.
Reports from there said they
also demanded $200,000 and
threatened to blow up the
plane and those aboard if their
demands were not met.
The hijackers set 9 p.m.
Wednesday as their deadline,
but the hour passed without
any action by the government
or the terrorists. The airline,
SAM, agreed to pay the
money.
"Negotiations with the
government should be
accelerated," the pilot, Jorge
Lucena, told the control tower
at Medellin, Colombia, in a
shaky voice as the plane sat on
the Aruba runway.
Two years ago Lucena foiled
another hijack attempt by
grabbing what turned out be to
a fake hand grenade away from
a terrorist.
President Misael Pastrana
conferred with other
Colombian officials Wednesday
night, and after a protracted
meeting turned down the
hijackers' demands.
The government was
confident, the sources said,
that the hijackers would give in
and continue to Cuba.
Colombian authorities asked
Dutch officials in Aruba for
"protection for the passengers
and crew of the aircraft."
The plane carried 85
passengers and crew of five on
a domestic flight from Cali in
Western Colombia to Medellin
when it was taken over.
Eighteen women and children
were allowed off after the
landing at the island 20 miles
north of the Venezuelan coast.

The moving finger writes

By ETIENNE DUPUCH
I SUPPOSE the Government in Britain is happy with the
steady movement of its Caribbean colonies into independence.
Unlike Holland, which has told its colonies in this hemisphere
that, as soon as possible, they must now go on their own, Britain
is doing nothing to hinder independence for the few tiny
remnants of Empire still attached to her coat tails.
What's left of the Empire today is a bill of expense and these
possessions have no value or place in Britain's future plans as she
turns her eyes more firmly in the direction of her new European
associations.
The Bahamas will cut its ties with Britain on July 10th.
And now Eric Gairy, premier of the "spice island" of Grenada,
has fixed a target date in the summer of 1974 as the deadline for
an independent Grenada.
He is already in London preparing to sit down with British
officials to write a constitution releasing the island, with its
110,000 population as an independent state.
But Opposition Leader Herbert Blaize, a former premier, is also
in London where he will make a last-ditch stand against
independence. He is armed with what he describes as a
"significant and substantial number of signatures from
Grenadians who do not support Gairy's move to independence".
But the British Foreign Office has already announced that it
accepts in principle independence for the island.
There are six British Associated States in the Eastern
Caribbean. These states like the Bahamas at the present time -
have full internal self-government, but with foreign affairs and
defense still the responsibility of Britain.
Grenada has experienced increasing labour and political unrest
in recent years. This situation has intensified in recent weeks.
At a recent independence rally in the island Gairy announced
that he had recruited 700 special policemen to help in preserving
order during this period.
Like Mr. Pindling in the Bahamas, Mr. Gairy feels that he needs
L. strong internal force to enable him to bring the "blessings" of
ibndependince to his people. Mt.Tindling has openly declared that
trouble had been the experience of islands that have moved into
independence and so he, too, was strengthening his internal forces
to be prepared for any emergency.
Certainly, this is a sad commentary on the supposed blessings
of independence!
There must be a great deal of unrest in Grenada because this is
the second time that Gairy has felt obliged to strengthen the
island's police e with special recruits.
At the height of Black Power unrest a couple of years ago he
recruited a number of men for the force. He described them as
"the toughest men" in the island.
Members of the Opposition accused him of picking these
recruits up from prisons and other undesirable groups in the
island.
North of Grenada is the small island of Antigua with a
population of only 70,000. This island is also an Associated State
of Britain. Tourism is its most important industry and it is so
located geographically that it has become a key air terminal for
tourism in the Eastern Caribbean. For example, visitors to
Montserrat, another British island, are flown from Antigua in a
tiny plane.
Premier George Walter of Antigua has announced plans to go
to the country on an independence platform in 1976.
Not surprisingly Britain appears ready to grant independence
to Antigua whenever she requests it.
******* **
British Honduras, Britain's last possession on the mainland of
America, might have been already independent were it not for the
threat to her security mounted by her more powerful neighbour
Guatemala. British Honduras covers an area of 8,000 square miles
in Central America and it is reported to be rich in natural
resources but it is still unexplored, undeveloped virgin territory.
Guatemala has a long standing claim to this territory and it has
been the presence of Britain alone that has prevented the
Guatemalan government from taking possession of it by force.
And so, until this threat is removed the government at Belize
will continue to nestle under the wing of Mother Britain.
**** CC C


I suppose it is just this attitude that has convinced Britain that
it is time to be rid of all colonial responsibilities.
. In this hour of dissolution of the greatest Empire in history
there is little evidence of loyalty or appreciation for all Britain
has done for her former family of nations. For, with all her faults,
Britain still stands out as the finest Mother of Nations in recorded
history. All these governments will take as much as they can
gouge out of Mother Britain, but they have nothing to offer in
return, not even a gracious show of appreciation.
This is all very sad .... but all too true to be further ignored by
Britain.
And now for a few more West Indian tid-bits.
All the islands in the Caribbean have suffered a back-lash in
tourism as a result of increasing violence and evidence of
anti-wnite feeling isn the area.
: A report from Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas, American Virgin
Islands, reveals a significant drop in tourism in the island.
-: F!i-res recently released showed that arrivals in the island
during the first nine months of the fiscal year of 1972-73 totalled
520,424 as compared with 562,167 for the same period during
the preceding year. Tourism is the island's principal industry.
These formerly peaceful islands were rocked by a series of
unprovoked murders of tourists not so long ago.
A news despatch from Georgetown, Guyana reports that four
independent Caribbean countries are planning to send a
diplomatic mission to Japan. They hope to establish permanent
representation in Tokyo before the end of this year.
Involved in this move are Guyana, Trinidad-Tobago, Barbados
4nd Jamaica. This is the group that will establish a common
market on August 1st.

By NICKI KELLY
GOVERNMENT AND OPPOSITION members overwhelmingly
endorsed a motion Wednesday by Killarney representative
Cadwell Armbrister that would set up a committee to investipte
the sale and use of drugs in the Bahamas and give it power to send
for persons and papers and sit from place to place.


Em phasizing their
widespread use and their
demoralizing effect on society,
members called for more
stringent laws to confine the
pushers and the establishment
of a rehabilitation centre for
those who had become
"hooked" on drugs.
Named to the committee at
the close of a two-and-a-half
Armbrister (PLP); Earl
Thompson (PLP-Ft. Charlotte);
Preston Albury (PLP-Rock
Sound); Kendal Isaacs
(FNM-Montagu) and Noel
Roberts (FNM-St. John's).
"I didn't realize the extent
of the drug problem here until
a few months ago when my
wife took an active part in the
matter and informed me of
what she saw. Then I knew
something had to be done
about it," Mr. Armbrister told
members.
From what he had read and
seen, he believed the use of
such drugs as marijuana, opium
and morphine were dangerous
to health, and most doctors
agreed that continued use of
these drugs was dangerous and
should be curtailed.
"If our laws prohibit use of
those drugs and if they are
dangerous, then it is incumbent
on us to stamp out the use or
curtail it to the minimum," Mr.
Armbrister declared.
Just how widespread the use
of dangerous drugs had become
in the country was borne out
by a recent newspaper story
(The Tribune, May 15) that
more than two million
wrappers had been sold in New
Providence last year.
It was believed, he said, that
these had been used for
wrapping marijuana. "Even
though these figures are
astronomical they do not take
into account those who use
their own paper or whatever
they can get their hands on,"
Mr. Armbrister declared.
Marijuana had penetrated
so deeply into the country that
it now existed in the schools
and one now heard of children
being put out of school for
using the drug and parents in
confrontation with their
children over its use.
"What is worse," Mr.
Armbrister continued, is that
there are certain known places
where one can get the drug
openly. Therefore we say that
the users and also the pushers
are becoming so presumptious
that they have little or no fear
of being apprehended.
"Our second city (Freeport)
has become known as 'sin city'
because of the widespread
prostitution and use of drugs.
"Some of the adverse effects
of prohibited drugs is that they
make one lazy and complacent.
It takes the ambitious drive out
of someone ... makes one float,
and when floating they are not
concerned about anything else
and this is not the attitude we


is now proposed that it should
Four.


would like to engender in our
soon to be independent
country," Mr. Armbrister said.
The member maintained
that it was the responsibility of
those persons in the House to
do whatever they could to rid
the country of this "contagious
disease."
"The real criminals in the
whole affair are the pushers
and persons who supply the
pushers of these drugs. These
are the ones who take
advantage of the inexperience
and weaknesses of some of our
people.
"This might not be an easy
task," he observed, "because I
believe that some of the people
involved in the drug traffic in
our country are respectable
people going about in the guise
of law-abiding citizens."
The problem had reached
such proportions that the
doctors at Sandilands Hospital
wished to see something done.
"It means," Mr. Armbrister
said, "that the persons
responsible for bringing in the
drugs and responsible for their
distribution are the ones we
must get to and try to bring to
justice."
The member conceded the
difficulty if not impossibility
of trying to police the islands
with regard to the importation
of drugs. "We do not have the
forces to do it therefore it is
incumbent on us to get to the
source and make an example of
those engaged in this business."
Mr. Armbrister said he knew
there was quite a number of
people who were prepared to
come forward and say what
they knew of the situation
because it was one that was
definitely hurting the country.
Opposition member Sir
Roland Symonette
(FNM-Shirlea) seconded the
motion and said Mr.
Armbrister had put his case
very ably. "It is a matter in
which we are all concerned. "I
don't believe it can be entirely
stamped out but it is
incumbent on all of us to do
what we can."
Praising the Killarney
representative for taking such a
"courageous stand," Ft.
Charlotte member Earl
Thompson (PLP) declared that
such a move was long overdue,
and it was fitting that Mr.
Armbrister be termed "the
bold one" because this was a
bold step.
Mr. Thompson said he could
speak about drugs from
experience because in the 1972
election campaign when he
went into the Ft. Charlotte
district he found drugs "very,
very prevalent."
"During the campaign with
the help of the police, we were
able to stamp out some of the
traffic in Ft. Charlotte. Now I
believe the traffic has moved
south and it is my
understanding it is being
carried on on the main
thoroughfare of Bain's Town."

It is still not known whether Japan will have representation in
Jamaica.
Until not many years ago England maintained a powerful fleet
in this hemisphere with headquarters in Hamilton, Bermuda.
It was appropriately known as the America and West Indies
Squadron because, with this naval force, Britain had policed the
hemisphere for over a century.
A Mr. Dobie, an American who was a lecturer at a university in
Britain during the second world war, wrote a book in admiration
of the British people under the title "An American in Britain".
In this book Mr. Dobie declared that Lord Nelson, Britain's
greatest of all Admirals, should be an American hero because, for
over a century, the Royal Navy policed the hemisphere and
enforced the American Monroe Doctrine which precludes
intrusion in this hemisphere by any foreign power not already
established in this area.
It is a significant fact, of course, that America cannot enforce
the doctrine for herself now that Russia and China have cast their
dark shadows over the area.
England has closed down the Bermuda base and withdrawn all
her ships, with the exception of a Frigate, from this area. The
Frigate is used to carry out Britain's continued obligation to
provide defence for territories in the West Indies that are still
under her protection.
If and when she can shed all her ties and responsibilities in
the West Indies she will be able to withdraw her last remnant of
power from seas in the Western Hemisphere, as she did East of
Suez after the disastrous Suez affair of 1956.
THOUGHTS FOR TODAY
Ship me somewhere east of Suez, where the best is like the
worst,
Where there aren't no Ten Commandments, an' a man can raise
a thirst:
For the temple-bells are calling and it's there that I would be -
By the old Moulmein Pagoda, looking lazy at the sea.

He said he understood the
pushers were largely known
but because of the money
involved they were not being
prosecuted.
From his own experience at
the Nassau Beach Hotel where
he was employed he was
convinced that there were
contacts who were going
around to these hotels,
nightclubs and schools.
"Drugs of all types are very
very harmful to the body and
indeed youngsters who take
drugs never develop into
mature adults," he declared.
It was high time, he
continued, that the laws be
made stringent enough so that
visitors coming here thinking
this was a drug haven would
think twice.
Mr. Thompson said he had
been told by a police officer
who spoke to Nassau Beach
staff recently, that 10 and
S1-year-olds were now on
drugs.
The member also referred to
the increase in the sale of
wrapping paper, but added that
representatives would also be
amazed to learn about the
quantity of patented drugs sold
over the counter.
Children were confronted by
drugs being used at home by
their parents and drug signs
were everywhere. "I personally
fear," he said. "that we and
our young people will fall into
the habit of our neighbour and
soon become addicted to
drugs."

3 youths, convicted & sentenced



twice for Lenny Davis murder, file



another appeal against conviction

By SIDNEY DORSETT
THREE YOUTHS, CONVICTED AND SENTENCED TO DEATH for a second time for the
murder of Peardale businessman Leonard ("Lenny") Davis Sr., by a Supreme Court jury in March
have again filed appeals against the conviction and sentence.


Samuel Sands, 20, a mason's
helper, James Andrews, an
ex-policeman and
self-employed mechanic, 21.
and kitchen-worker security
officer James Strachan, 26,
were sentenced to eight years
imprisonment in addition to
the death penalty.
The sentence imposed by
Chief Justice Sir Gordon Bryce
was delivered after the three
men had been unanimously
convicted of the offence on a
retrial. It was the same
sentence which had been
previously imposed by another
Supreme Court judge in May
last year when another jury
had found the three guilty of
murdering Davis.
They had a rehearing of
their armed robbery and
murder case after the May,
1972 sentence when they took
their case to the Bahamas
Court of Appeal, which upheld
their grounds of appeal.
It is the second time that
Sands, Andrews and Strachan
are appealing. They are to be
represented by their court
appointed attorneys Messrs.
Cay Gottlieb, Keith Duncombe
and Miss Jeanne Thompson,


respectively.
The three attorneys had also
represented them during their
second trial with Mr. Gottlieb
replacing attorney
David Bethell, who had been
retained by the court as
counsel for the accused Sands.
The three had been accused
of attacking Davis Sr. in a
secluded spot in the Yellow
Elder Gardens subdivision
while he sat in the back-seat of
his car with a 33-year-old
woman employee on the night
of December 26, 1971.
BODY FOUND
Davis' nude body was later
discovered by a passer-by the
next morning lying near the
roadside. Over $300 was stolen
from him and his car, a
Plymouth Satellite was found
parked in a clump of bushes
away from the scene of the
crime.
Expected to be heard when
the court of appeals opens on
Thursday, June 7, for the
Trinity Sessions. Strachan is
contending in his grounds of
appeals that the Chief Justice
"did not exercise his discretion
properly in not allowing a
separate trial' for him.

The same appeal, among
others, has been forwarded by
appellant Andrews.
The grounds of Sands'
appeal have not as yet been
filed. They are expected to be
done "as soon as transcripts of
the case have been delivered to
his attorney." Their ground
of appeal arises from a bid by
defence attorneys to have the
cases heard separately.
Miss Thompson and Mr.
Duncombe, attorneys for
Strachan and Andrews made
the application to the Chief
Justice for separate trials on
January 25.
Their application was turned
down, however, as it was held
that it was in the interests of
justice to have the three men
stand trial jointly.
In both trials, leading the
case for the Crown was
Solicit General Mr. T.
Langton Hilton.
ERRID)
As further grounds of
appeal, Strachan is contending
that "the judge erred in law in
allowing secondary evidence as
the statement was not a
voluntary statement.
"That as the defence
suggested a theory alternate to
the theory put forward by the
Prosecution and this theory
was possible and consistent
with the evidence, the jury
should have accepted the
defence theory and acquitted
him," he further states.
It is also left open for "any
other ground to which the
court may seem a reasonable
ground of appeal."
Similar grounds of appeal to
those filed for Strachan were
also made for appellant
Andrews who also listed among
his grounds of appeal that "the
learned judge erred in law in
ruling the statement he
purportedly made and the
conversation proceeding the
statement admissible as the
statement and the conversation
were not voluntary and were
not made in accordance with
the Judges' Rules."


Defence attorneys
Duncombe, Thompson and
Gottlieb were non-committal
as to whether they would
appeal following the conviction
of their clients in March.

PARENTS JAILED FOR GIVING
THEIR CHILDREN MARIJUANA
COLUMBIA, SOUTH
CAROLINA (AP) Police have

REGATTA


PLANS

PROGRESS
CAPTAIN DURWARD
Knowles. chairman of the
Independence Regatta
Committee announced that he
was particularly pleased -Aith
the cooperation being received
from former officials of the
Out Island Squadron
Committee in organizing the
July 4-7 Regatta.
Former O.I.S. Commodore
Howland Bottomly is a
member of the Independence
Regatta Committee and will be
on hand to help conduct the
races. Commodore George
Ilarvey of Chicago who has
handled the handicapping and
scoring at George Town for
many years will be on hand in
the same capacity.
The Port Authority will
make its Potters Cay
warehouse available to the
Regatta Committee as a
headquarters for the workboat
fleet and Mr. Geoff Symonette
has agreed to be Paymaster for
this section of the Regatta. said
Mr. Knowles.
The Independence Regatta
Committee realizes that it is
not responsible for the
resumption of the Regatta in
George Town, however, it has
given consideration to possible
dates and considers that
Thursday, April 25 to
Saturday, April 27, 1974
would be desirable dates for
the Family Island Regatta," he
said.
With the help of the Police
Boats and BASRA it is hoped
that tows can be provided daily
from Potters Cay dock to the
Starting line in Montagu Bay.
As in George Town in
previous years, there will be a
news bulletin published daily
containing items of interest to
the workboat fleet.
The presentation of trophies
for all classes participating in
the Regatta will take place at
the Sheraton British Colonial
Hotel at 6 p.m. on Saturday.

over with sexual self
confidence. lie is in the
Baharnian vernacular
"biggety". In his own words he-
says of himself:
"I have everything that's
sweet
That's my industry".
His fantastic self confidence
is also professional. lie claims
that he is going to cut a record
on Independence but that he's
waiting until the last moment.
"I've got no competition," he
says.
As part of his act on Friday
night he took a young
vacationer, Beverly from
Philadelphia, and
spontaneously composed a
song about her ordering her to
slap him across the face if he
once failed to rhyme. Of
course he didn't and the
self-conscious young girl visibly
relaxed as his calypso
progressed. His words and his
own movements might he
obvious, but his treatment of
this young girl was inoffensive
and almost old world courtly.
Not only does the Count not
care a damn about his sexual
innuendos, he is also politically
uninhibited
On Friday he urged the
audience to
"Sit back and relax; in the
Bahamas you pay no income
tax" and then informed the
audience that this will change
after July 10th.
I'he Count works hard to
entertain his audience. He
appears to be completely
non-plussed by an initially slow
responsive audience.After his
first number he said:
"Applause is the
entertainer's meal ticket. I
want to thank you for that hot
dog."
After a, Very short while he
was being given deak.
Over the past fourteen years
the Count said the audience
has become gradually younger.
He likes the change and told
me "'The type of
people (tourist we are now
getting) seem to enjoy
themselves more due to the
fact that we have much more
to offer in entertainment".
Ilowever hlie also had some
criticism. "I am still saying that
the average Bahamian musician
is not giving the tourist the real
Bahamian flavour. They are
playing too much American
music which is not too good
for us".
Count Bernadino loves the
idea of Goombay summer. In
fact he claims to be the
originator.
On Friday night hy said: "I
am the originator of Goombay
summer. I arranged the first
goombay summer in Nassau
and Freeport. I designed the
costumes. I picked the people.
I picked the dances. I bought
the clothes. I did all the
arranging with the straw
workers on Bay Street. I
arranged for all the musicians. I
took the troops (musicians and
dancers) to New York and
Canada. I made the television
commercials with these dancers
and I think I worked for six
months prior to the first
goombay summer arranging it
with the advertising agency
from New York. I think the

complete success and I'm not
afraid to say that as long as
goombay summer lasts even
'though for other reasons as
long as there's goombay
summer the name Count
Bernadino will always be
known as the Godfather of
Goombay summer".
Count Bernadino ascribed
political motives to his
exclusion in further years.
If this is so and I can fully
appreciate that prima donnas
such as the Count surely is are
not the easiest people to deal
with I would think it a pity.
For there's no doubt about it
the Count is a superb
polished performer
and Bahamian to the core.
The show also includes
Abby le Fleur the fire dancer -
after being scorched by the
provocative words of the
Count the audience were then
threatened to be scorched by
the fire dancer's fire and
they loved it. Lord Chea the
limbo dancer follows Abby le
Fleur and Tony Seymour and
the Nightbeaters play from
7:30 p.m. until 1:30 a.m. The
usual two drinks per person
minimum are the damages.
Men must wear jackets.

AN IMPORTANT part of the
Goombay summer programme
are the weekly fashion shows
to be held every Monday -
June 4th through September
3rd at one o'clock in all the
major hotels on New
Providence and Paradise Island.
These shows will be
produced, directed and played
by Trend Bahamas Modelling
Agency led by two energetic,
business like, internationally
trained professional models,
Jean Wilkinson and Joan
Neeley.
There will be nothing
ordinary about these fashion
shows. In fact they'll really be
shows rather than the usual
almost lifeless models
displaying clothes, which
would generally be expected.
The basic format for these
goombay shows was first
introduced by. Flo Miller and
have been further developed by
the two Trend ladies. The
models, instead of merely
moving up and down, actually
dance to the authentic
Bahamian rhythm of goombay
music.
This year there are
improvisations. As Jean says,
"I can't be involved in
anything that's stagnant".
This variety will show itself
in a number of ways.
Each show will consist of
five models four girls and
one man but these will be
changed and mixed in every
show so there will be no
duplication of cast. Not only
will th ensure a lack of
dullness for the audience but
also will be a means to project
new faces and utilize
individuals with potential that
might otherwise have not had

the opportunity for exposure.
Freshness will be further
ensured by the introduction of
a new theme each week. One
week a Bahamian flower might
be the theme, another week a
particular out-island and closer
to July 10, Independence
might be the basic theme.
This theme is to be capsuled
choreographically at the
beginning of each show. All
five models will be on the stage
at the beginning to pose and do
a routine together to express
the particular theme of the
week. After that, of course, the
models will show off their
clothes individually. There is
great emphasis this year on
things Bahamian. Bahamian
handprints, straw market
produce and clothes provided
by Bahamian merchants will be
the props.
In previous years, these
ladies informed me, the
Bahamian audience has
outnumbered the visitors but
4 rpepradict ear+thtrM


will be interest both from
Bahamian and touristic
angles". The American visitors
are especially interested in
European clothes that are so
over-priced in the States.
Arrangements will be made to
sell the outfits so modelled
right there and to visitors who
have no time left to shop.
Maybe the Misses Wilkinson
and Neeley will be the pioneers
who will catapult modelling in
the Bahamas to the status of a
serious profession.

Her 'dreamy' affair

could end in disaster


By Abigail Van Buren
a Im W COka Tm tae.M. V. M"a Sif., Wg.,
DEAR ABBY: I am very much in love with a married
man. It began two years ago when I went to work for him.
I am married and have two children, six and eight. My
lsbasnd is a nice guy, but nothing special. We don't comr
mundcate at all anymore. His whole life is sports.
Abby, I want more than anything else in the world to
have my lover's child because I know I can never have
him. He says he loves me, but he will never leave his wife
because he loves her, too-in a different way. Also, he says
having an affair is one thing, but he doesn't believe in
breaking up another man's home.
I have expressed my desire to have his child, but he
says it would be the worst thing I could do to myself. I
don't agree with him. I feel that if our affair ends-as most
affairs do, at least I will have a part of him to remember
thim by. Who would that be hurting as long as nobody but
'us knew It? MY DREAM
DEAR MY: Your "dream" sounds like a plot for a
grade "B" movie. Wake up! You're courting disaster with
sune h hazardous notions.
DEAR ABBY: My husband and I invited a friend to
dine with us at a family restaurant to celebrate her birth-
day. Across from us sat a couple, their son, who looked
about 4 years old, and another adult.
The child talked loudly and incessantly. At one point he
amused himself by loudly saying the ABC's over and over,
making it impossible for us to converse.
When our guedt went-i the restroom, the boy followed
her and tried to get in. Fortunately the door was locked.
The boy's parents witnessed the whole thing and didn't say
a word. After our guest vacated the restroom, the boy
didn't go In, which indicated he didn't have to use it, hbe
saly wanted to annoy her.
That child ruined our evening. When we left we spoke
to the owner about it and he said the parents and that child
ate there often and there was nothing he could do about it.
Please print this to let parents know that they should
either train their children to behave in public or leave them
home. They have no right spoiling an evening out for others.
NAMELESS
DEAR NAMELESS: Parents of Ill-mannered children
dea't care whose evening they spoil. You should have com-
plained directly to the parents or to the management earli-
er in the evening, and when it became clear that nobody
eared, you should have gone elsewhere.
DEAR ABBY: A woman signed "IGNORED" wrote to
complain that her husband made it plain that he preferred
the TV set to her, and you replied: "Maybe it's because he
can turn off the TV when he wants to."
You should have added that he can also turn the TV
"ON" when he wants to. ROBERT B.
DEAR ROBERT: I would have, had I thought of it.
Thanks for the assist!
DEAR ABBY: My husband and I are both Catholics.
My husband wants to join the Masonic Order. I say the
Masons will not take a'-Catholic. My husband says they.
wlI.'I-he is right and joins the Masons, I say if the
Cathdet church finds out about it they will kick him out,
q d h won't be able to receive communion with his family,
and8ben he dies they won't give him the last rites.
Something else that I never could understand: Why
can't a Catholic be a Mason, too? IN THE DARK
DEAR IN: The Masons WILL accept Catholics, but a
Catholic who Joins the Masons forfeits his right to receive
the sacraments, and he will be canonkally excommunleat-
ed from the Catholic church. [You can't "kick" a CathoUe
set of the church-be can attend church if he wants to, but
he can't receive the sacraments. 1
The Catholics view Masonry as a formal religion, and
mee cannot be a Catholic and a Mason for the same reason
that one cannot be a Catholic and a Lutheran or a Catholic
and a Mohammedan at the same time.
DEAR ABBY: I am now a grown man, but when I was
a child my parents never forced me to eat anything I didn't
like, and I never suffered from it. I now tend to follow that
approach with my own children. I have divorced and re-
married, and my present wife and I have my children from
my previous marriage for many weekends and most of the
summer.
We get along fine, except at. mealt e9,J.My wife feels
that children should be made to eat food they don't like, on
the theory that it is good for them, and they will grow to
like it. The children have made an honest effort to try
certain foods which don't appeal to them, but they simply
don't like certain things. My wife tends to prepare at least
one thing at every meal that the children don't like, and it
is a constant hassle at mealtime.
We have agreed to let you arbitrate and will abide by
your decision. FATHER
DEAR FATHER: Angry arguments at mealtime are
bad for the digestion. I vote for a compromise. If the kids
are too picky and don't like too many things, for nutrition's
sake, bear down. But don't force food on them just to prove
your wife's authority over them. That's not fair.
DEAR ABBY: I've been putting this off for so many
years I am ashamed of myself, but now I must do some-
thing about it.
When I was very young I had an illegitimate daughter.
When she was 2, I married a fine man, and we had
three children of our own. All four children think my hus-
band Is their father.
My husband never legally adopted my first child. She
Just used his last name, and it has gone on like that ever
since.


This first daughter is now 44 years old, and one day in
order to get old age benefits she will have to have a birth
certificate. I seem to recall that when she was an infant I
destroyed it for fear she [or someone else] would find it.
I don't want her to know the circumstances of her


"I'm new here. Should I go right on working, or do I get
to 4Ia atap whenever you do?"


Qght ubrtbAmw 9


birth, but I think I am cornered. Can you help me?
TROUBLED MIND
DEAR TROUBLED: The laws vary nla different states.
Talk to a lawyer. Be may be able to help you get another
birth certifcate without disclosag the facts. It's worth a
try.
DEAR ABBY: Re the letter from the housewife who
said her husband got all kinds of offers from willing women
to have coffee and "something" while making a delivery:
I've been installing phones for five years, and the most I've
ever been offered was a cup of coffee and a piece of cake.
I hope all wives whose husbands make deliveries and
service calls don't think their husbands are fooling around.
They aren't. Believe me, I know.
NOTHING ON THE SIDE
CONFIDENTIAL TO LOREN: Superstar misses you.
Please call your mother collect immediately.

on left fielder
Willie Knowles. His first pitch
to Knowles was a ball and that
walk was charged to Eugene
Thompson who came to the
mound twu batters earlier.
Knowles was credited with an
rbi Humes struck out and
"r.:ur flied to centre to end
iaing and the game.
i .,ing Jet Set's offence was
Spoon McKinney and Eugene
Thompson. McKinney

four times at bat and scored

Huyler the third batter sent
David Johnson's three-two
pitch past second for a single.
Taylor, slow on getting out
of the way of a curve pitch,
took a hit by the pitch to load
the bases. As If McKinney was
the weak link in Jet Set's
defence, Knowles sent a
hopper to him. Again, a
fumbling McKinney was unable
to get the relay to first in time
and Haven saw Becks 1-0. Sim
Humes tried for the same
position but, a little out of
place, it went to Thompson at
third who got Humes at first
but Huyler was in there for the
Bees' second run.
As Johnson settled on the
mound, Jet Set's batters came
alive and in the third inning
they rallied to take a 3-2 lead
which they held for the
remainder of the game. Both

From Page 1
in the by-election.
Mr. Butler, who first sat as
member of the House in 1938,
has, since 1967, served the PLP
government as Minister of
Health, Minister of Labour and
Minister of Agriculture and
Fisheries.
The Prime Minister
commended the member for
his many years of service to the
House, and noted the many
"ups and downs" in his
political career.
"If there was ever a member
who had had the privilege to
walk with kings it is the
member of Bains Town, and if
there was ever a member who
did not lost the common touch
it is the member for BaIns
Town," he said.
Mr. Pindling described Mr.
Butler as: "father of the
nation."

in McKinney, picked up his

KRi's by Louis McQuay and
Robert Sawyer which
contributed to Jet Set's
three-run fifth inning forced
Becks into retiring Sherwin
Taylor from the mound ,
bringing in Greg Austin who
pitched the remaining one and
one third innings.
Two costly errors in the i
bottom of the fifth gave Becks
two runs scored by Taylor and
Knowles.
Jet Set made up for their
errors in the top of the sixth
and McKinney's triple was paid
off with Lionel Nelly's rbi
double. Nelly who advanced to
third on an error by the pitcher
went on to score his second of
the game on a wild pitch.
In picking up the win,
Johnson who faced 25 batters

Johncock wins a shortened ut


tragically marred Indianapolis 5S0

By L0YS UBRITT
INDANAPOSM (AP)- Pint-siaed Gordon Johocock won the tragic, rain-shortened 57th
Indiampols S-Mie &ma Wednesday that eoat oe crewnan his life and sent driver Swede Savae
to a hospital with critical injuries.


All three were members of
Andy Granatdli's STP racing
team, which was stung by the
ecstasy of Johncoek's victory
and the tragedy of Savage's
injury and their crewman's
death.
Johncock, a 36-year-old
campaigner who lives in nearby
Franklin, Ind., brought his Dan
Gurney-built Eagle
Offenhauser across the finish
line one minute and 25 seconds
ahead of Billy Vukovich as rain
pelted the two and one half
mile Indianapolis Motor
Speedway. The winning margin
of victory, originally
announced as 30 seconds, was
changed two hours after the
finish by a U.S. Auto Club
official.

lap and race officials flagged
the event to a halt five laps
later. It was the shortest race in
Indianapolis history.
The 18-year racing veteran,
never a big winner, covered the
332% miles in two hours, five
minutes and 27.66 seconds for
an average speed of 159.014
miles per hour.
$200,000 WIN
When the purse of more
than $1 million is divided, the
150 pounds, five-foot
seven-inch winner will pick up
in excess of $200,000.
Third place in the unofficial
standings went to 42-year-old
Roger McCluskey of Tucson,
Ariz. Mel Kenyon, a
battle-sarred veteran from
Lebanon, Ind., placed fourth,
while fifth place went to Gary
Bettenhausen of Tinley Park,
MD.
Johncock, a ruggedly
handsome blond who has
driven just about evesy type of
racing car, inherited a lead he
Was never to surrender after
1970-1971 winner Al Unser
suffered engine problems on
the 70Oth lap.
By that time, however, most
of the p-race favourites either
had left the race or were
liMping around with faulty
machines.
The race was flagged to an
abrupt halt on the 59th lap
when Savage, a 26-year-old
from Santa Ana, Calif., lost
control of his Eagle-Offy and
dsummed against the two
retaining walls coming out of
the Speedway's fourth turn.
The car broke in half, with
the front part exploding into a
ball of flame. Savage, the
victim of a near-fatal crash in
California two years ago, was
hospitalized in critical
condition with a broken left
arm and left leg, burns on the
face, arms and hands and


possible corneal damage.
SECOND DEATH
Moments after the crash, a
fire truck heading the wrong
way down pit road toward the
accident ran squarely into
22-year-old Armondo Teran of
Culver City, Calif. Teran died
just over an hour later of
multiple injuries.
It was the second death in a
tragic month of May at
Indianapolis.
Art Polland, 45-year-old
veteran from Medford, Ore.,
lost control of his racer and
crashed in flames during a
pre-qualifying warmup session
May 12. He was the 34th driver
to lose his life since the
Speedway was opened in 1911.
The official results will not
be posted until this morning,
but the scoreboard listed the
sixth through 10th place
finishers as Steve Krisiloff,
rookie Lee Kunzman, John
Martin, pole-position starter
Johnny Rutherford, and Mike
Mosely.
The savage accident was the
second major one in three

of Dayton, Ohio, was badly
burned in a multi-car crash in
an aborted start of the race
Monday, its original running
date.
Two other drivers were
slightly injured and nine
spectators hospitalized from
flames that seared them when
Walther's machine climbed the
fence along the front stretch.
Johncock had qualified in
I Ith position at a speed of
192.555 m.p.h. and had been
listed among the favourites
despite much higher time trial
speeds of some of the other
drivers.
He had been running
strongly all day, but his task
was made easier with dropouts
and mechanical failures of his
chief contenders.
