(DISTILLERS)LTD GLASGOW
WASHINGTON (AP)
Special prosecutor Archibald
Con asked a federal judge
Wednesday to order the Senate
Watergate committee lo hear
potentially incriminating
testimony in closed session or
at least without radio and
television coverage.
Cox's appeal was in
connection with a motion from
the Senate commiltee uking
Chief U.S. Dist. Court Judge
John Sirica to grant immunity
to ousted White Mouse counsel
John W Dean III and Jeb
Stuart Magruder. former
deputy director of the Nixon
campaign committee.
Cox said he believes the
judge has no choice but to
grant a limited form of
immunity if the conditions
contained in the law are met.
"We believe ihe express
conditions have been
satisfied." he said
But Cox's memorandum
argued that Sirica has the
power to set additional
conditions
"The most appropriate
older would be one requiring
the testimony to be taken in
executive session without
subsequent public disclosure,"
Cox memorandum said.
But he added: "Bearing in
mind the decision of the
Senate select committee to
push forward with public
hearings, the most appropriate
condition would seem lo be
the exclusion, during the giving
of compelled self-incriminating
testimony, of live or recorded
radio, television and other
coverage not permitted at a
criminal trial."
believe I mentioned the money
to Liddy ... I believe I wasjusi
saying somebody external to
the campaign has to look into
r In*.
"I believe he interpreted my
being there as personal fear."
Sloan told the senators. "Me
indicated to me that he had a
special relationship to the
White House. If I needed help
in gelling a lawyer, he'd be
glad to do that, but he didn't
tell me any of the details. I
don't want to know. My
position would have to be,
until after the election, that I
would have to take executive
privilege."
I XI CUTIVB PRIVIII c,l
I xccutive privilege normally
prevents disclosure of
confidential conversations
between the President and his
staff. Ehrlichman was Nixon's
domestic adviser until his
resignation April 30.
Sloan said he had given
Liddy $199,000, including one
lump payment of 83,000
dollars authori/.ed by
Magruder. Not long after the
June 17 break-in, Sloan said,
he was called into Magruder's
office.
Magruder suggested scaling
down the total given to Liddy
"in the range of somewhere
75.000 to 80,000 dollars."
Sloan said. "Me must have been
insistent because I rmember
making to him a statement, 'I
have no intention of perjuring
myself.'"
"What did he say to you?"
asked committee counsel
Samuel Dash.
"Me said you may have to,"
Ihe 32-year-old Sloan replied.
At another meeting, Sloan
said. Magruder again suggested
he reduce the figure, this time
in the 40.000-45.000 dollar
range.
Late in June, Sloan said, an
investigation was being
conducted within the
committee by Frederick C.
Larue, the chief aide to
campaign director John N.
Mitchell.
Sloan testified that he had
become concerned earlier at
the massive cash
disbursements, and that he
took up the matter with
Maurice Stans, former
Secretary of Commerce who
headed fund-raising for the
re-election campaign.
lie quoled Stans as saying he
would check into Magruder's
authority to approve such
disbursements and later that he
had conferred with Mitchell
and confirmed Magruder had
authority
As for the purpose for
which Liddy needed the
money, Sloan said, Stans told
him: "I do not want to know
and you do not want to
know "
In the afternoon session
Sloan said Stans had numerous
telephone conversations after
the breakin with people he said
were on the "political side" of
the campaign, Larue and
Robert Mardian, a Mitchell
aide.
"Stans was

conversations I

problem. You guys have to
handle it. keep it from Sloan
and myself. We had nothing to

angry. I think he was upset
with the political side of the
campaign "
VI SCO'S MOM i
Slans and Mitchell, along
with two others, recently were
indicted on charges stemming
from a 200,000 dollar
campaign contribution by
Robert L. Vesco.
Sloan said the financial
problems in last year's
campaign came because the
financing law changed April 7,
producing a "bulge" of money
coming in at that time some
6 million dollars on the last
day. Me suggested the law
should be given another
chance. "It may well get to the
point where the only way to
fund a camapign is through
public funding." Sloan said.
"Make it so that it's in no one's
interest in business to
contribute."

WASHINGTON (AP)
IVsidcnt Nixon announced
three moves Wednesday in a
major rebuilding of his
Watergate-shaken White House
stall
Army General Alexander M.
Haig Jr., will retire from active
duty and continue as chief of
the White House staff, a post
he has held on an interim basis
Former Secretary of Defense
Melvin R Laird was appointed
Counsellor to the President for
Domestic Affairs and, in that
Cabinet-rank post, will in
effect succeed John D.
I'hrlichman who resigned April
30 along with the former staff
chief H. R. Haldeman.
Ronald L. Ziegler, whde
remaining as press secretary,
will be given the added title of
\ssistant to the President and
given a role in White House
policy making.
Haig's retirement from the
army will take effect Aug. I, at
which time he will be
appointed Assistant to the
President. A former deputy to
foreign policy expert Henry A.
Kissinger, Haig had been
recalled to the White House
from his post as Army Vice
Chief of Staff following
Haldeman's resignation.
Wednesday's announcement
said Haig will be responsible
for "coordination and
supervision of the day-to-day
operations and responsibilities
of the White House staff."
Laird, a former U.S. House
member from Wisconsin, "will
be responsible for the over-all
formulation and coordination
of domestic policy," said the
White House. He will be given a
seat on the National Security
Council.
' The announcement said
Ziegler, with the resignation of
llerbeit G. Klein as Director of
Communications, will assume
responsibility for the
communications office as well
as the press office. It said: "As
assistant to the President, he
will be involved in policy
meetings both with the
President and other senior staff
members, and also will retain
his briefing responsibilities and
daily contact with members of
the press."
Earlier today, before the
While House announcement,
Ralph Nader's Public Citizen,
Inc., sued Wednesday to strip
Haig of his military rank and
privileges.
Haig forfeited his military
standing when he was
appointed an assistant to the
President, the court suit
charged.
The public citizen suit cited
a section of the U.S. code
stating ... "no officer on the
active list of the regular army,
regular navy, regular marine
corps, or regular coast guard
may hold a civil office by
election or appointment "
IMPEACHMENT
TALK IS
QUICKLY HALTED
WASHINGTON (AP) The
first formal House discussion
of possible impeachment of
President Nixon was halted on
a technicality after only six
minutes Wednesday night.
A speech on the subject by
Rep. Paul McCloskey (R.
Calif.) was stopped on demand
of Rep. Earl F. Landgrebe (R..
Ind.) for a quorum that the
House could not muster.
About 60 of the needed 218
members were present.
McCloskey said he believes
"that time seems almost at
hand" when the House must
consider formal impeachment
proceedings "unless^ the
President makes a full and fair
disclosure of everything he
knows and when he learned
it "
Landgrebe said he has no
vendetta against McCloskey
and represents no wing of the
Republican Parly. But, he
added:
"I don't think any member
of Congress Republican.
Democrat or Socialist should
be on the floor talking about
impeachment without a
quorum present."
BRITISH TRAIN REACHES
131 M.P.H. NEW RECORD
I ONDON (AP) A prototype of
Britain's new high-speed passenger
train (HST) touched 131 miles per
hour Thursday and broke a
35-year-old rail speed record.
The new British record was set
during a test run on a track In Ihe
north of England to demonstrate
the HST's planned service speed of
a sustained 125 m.p.h.
The old record of 126 m.p.h. was
set in 1938 by Ihe steam
locomotive Mallard. That speed Mill
stands as a world best for a steam
train.
The HST is due to go into service
in 1974.
solar panel today
By Paul Recer
SPACE CENTRE, TEXAS (AP) Skylab astronauts staged a
rehearsal Wednesday of a tricky space walk salvage job which may
save their troubled mission. At the same time, another battery
weekened and intensified the power problem aboard the
distress.'.i space station.
"I'm not as optimistic as
you are," said Skylab I
commander Charles Conrad,
the man with the toughest role
in the two-man stage-walking
repair job. "But we'll give it a
go."
Conrad and Dr. Joseph P.
Kerwin worked with ropes,
hooks and tools, practicing the
techniques they will use
Thursday in an attempt to cut
or loosen an aluminum strip
fouling a power panel wing on
the side of their
electricity-starved Skylab.
"We'll know better when we
see it," said Kerwin during the
rehearsal, "but our feeling is
we've got about a 50-50 chance
to pull it off."
Skylab lost another 80 to
100 watts from its
already-short supply of
electricity Wednesday when
power from a battery system
dropped by one-half to
one-third. Two other battery
systems failed earlier in the
mission.
"Right now we have 16 of
18 batteries working, with the
prospects of having only 15 of
18," said flight director Charles
Lewis.
WARNINGS
He warned that the
astronauts, like a homeowner
on earth trying to save heating
fuel, may have to conserve
power by closing off large
rooms in Skylab and retreating
to two small compartments if
the weakening battery fails and
if they are unable to deploy
the wing.
However, said Lewis
successful deployment of the
wing "will get us out of the
woods on power."
Skylab now has a maximum
of only 4,100 watts of power,
less than half its designed
needs. Total loss of the battery
would drop that to about
4,000 watts. The wing could
add about 3,000 watts, enough
to perform the full Skylab 1
experiment programme.
The astronauts also aimed
powerful earth resources
cameras aboard Skylab at
Hurricane Ava, a Pacific Ocean
storm 700 miles off the coast
of Acapulco, Mexico.
Two of the 18 available
batteries already have failed,
and Lewis told newsmen that if
the third went out, and the
panel could not be freed, the
astronauts would have to
drastically curtail their
research.
Lewis said they might have
to abandon the huge workshop
area of the station to save
energy and retreat to two
smaller rooms where they
could conduct limited earth
resources, solar observatory
and medical experiments.
The flight director said the
third battery began losing
power Tuesday night,
apparently because of a short
circuit in a transistor, and was
producing only about one-half
to two-thirds of its potential.
As the astronauts awakened
for their 13th day in space, just
one shy of the American
record for a single (licht.
Conrad reported they had
stayed up 90 minutes late
Tuesday night to do some
homework on the space walk.
"We completely built the
EVA Extravehicular Activity
- pole and the BET Beam
Erection Tether -" Conrad
said.
HANDRAIL
The 25-foot metal pole will
be used by the commander as a
handrail when he moves along
the outside of the Skylab to
the jammed solar wing. If he
succeeds in freeing it with his
tool kit, he'll use the rope-like
tether to hoist the panel into
position.
Conrad, Dr. Joseph P.
Kerwin and Paul J. Weitz, also
planned a half-day of
experiments Wednesday.
Kerwin, a physician, drew
blood from each crewman in a
continuing medical study, and
he and Weitz scheduled time
on a battery of telescopes.
Mission control advised
them to survey an area of the
sun where they might spot a
solar flare and asked them to
point their Earth resources
cameras later at a hurricane off
the west coast of Mexico.
U.S. DOLLAR
IMPROVES IN
EOROPE
LONDON (AP) The U.S. dollar
improved ilrongly Wednesd..
European money market*.
Thr price of gold, clowly tied lo
Ihe dollar's health in recent market
fluctuations, tagged in the bullion
markets.
I>.mI.ts laid the Atmn,
currency** renewed strength was
due in large measure to advance
reports from Washington that
President Nixon was moving to
tighten up his administrations
economic policies.
Melvin K. Laird, Nixon\ new
domestic policy chief, followed up
those reports later Wednesday by
disclosing in Washington that Nixon
plans stronger moves against
inflation and in defense of the
dollar.
But some dealers in Europe
attributed the dollar's recovery lo
pro fit-taking by speculators after
almost a week of steady decline.
They expected the dollar to start
down again later in the week.
The dollar climbed from Tokyo
to Paris and, in reverse reaction,
gold closed at $120.50 an ounce in
London, down from Tuesday's
record high.
Since March I, the dollar hai
fallen by 8.2 per cent against the
West German mark, by 6 per cent
in relation to the franc, 3.9 per cent
against the Hutch guilder and 2.9
per cent against .he Swiss franc, but
only one per cent against the
Japanese yen.
This decline has worried
European governments and
exporters because it added to the
price advantage for U.S. goods on
world markets.
President Georges Pompidou of
Erance said Tuesday the United
States ought to start defending the
dollar by selling Its holdings of
foreign currencies and gold. Other
Erench officials said the dollar
slump amounted to Its third
devaluation in less than 18 months.
The British government
announced Wednesday that the
country had an over-all surplus of
$175 million in foreign payment*,
despite a trade deficit of
approximately $900 million during
the first three months of the year.
The influx of unwanted dollars
was even greater in some other
countries, notably Wesl German).
Nevertheless, the dollar rose ||
the opening of Europe's exchanges
after a strong closing in both Tokyo
and Hong Kong. In Frankfurt, the
dollar was up more than two
pfennigs at the opening from
Tuesday's closing 2.59 marks. In
the afternoon, it jumped to 2.64
marks.
Trading was moderate nearly
everywhere except In Paris, where it
was described as active. The dollar
closed there at 4.2850 francs, a
seven-centime rise from Tuesday.
The dollar was up two Swiss
centimes at 3.06 francs in Zurich.
The British pound lost more than
a cent in value and was quoted at
$2.5670 In late trading.

PM discounts revolt, trouble or CIA involvement in Abaco
EDITORIAL
Co
Concealment is fatal
ByETIENNE DUPUCH
SOME terrible things are happening in crime in the Bahamas
nowadays .... things that are not a part of the Bahamian
character.
They are a part of a pattern that is spreading through former
British colonies in this hemisphere to give them a bad name
among what Minister of Tourism Clement Maynard has described
as "quality tourists". "Quality" in this case means tourists with
money to spend.
The four most startling events in the Bahamas recently have
been the case of kidnapping of a child at Freeport; the case of
tourists being attacked by armed men while playing a round of
golf on a course in Freeport; a bank robbery, also at Freeport.
and the most recent case of the brutal murder of an American
housewife in Nassau while her husband was away on business and
her three young children slept in nearby rooms.
Three of these attacks against visitors to the islands were
allegedly done by Bahamians. Many other violent crimes have
been committed at Freeport but most of them were by
foreigners.
In all my years of experience in the Bahamas the only other [
case of alleged kidnapping I can recall took place in Nassau over
30 years ago when an American came to the island and took his
child from her mother, who had been awarded its custody by an
American court. No money was involved. It was just a case of a
man wanting to get possession of his own child.
He tried to get away with the child in a small private plane but
he was intercepted and charged in the Magistrate's Court with the
offence.
I remember that the late Hon. A. F. Adderley defended the
man and, as far as I can remember, got him off with a light
sentence because, up to that time, the Bahamas had not
anticipated such a crime as kidnapping and so no law on the
Statute Books of the colony covered the kidnapping part of the
case. It was then that a law for this crime was passed by the
Legislature.
An attack on tourists, such as took place at Freeport, is a type
of crime that is new to Bahamians, as also is bank robbery. A
couple of bank cases have also occurred in Nassau but they were
all carried out in an amateurish way, the criminals were quickly
apprehended by the Police and dealt with by the courts. In one
case a man was hanged because he foolishly shot the Bahamian
manager of a small Royal Bank of Canada branch.
It is not the purpose of this article to discuss crime as such in
the Bahamas. I will do this in another article when I try to
analyse the reasons for so many of our formerly law-abiding
people suddenly displaying a terrible greed for money, so much
so that some of them are now trying to get-rich-quick by violent
means.
The thing I am going to discuss today is also a serious aspect of
life in the colony. It is a desire by the authorities to conceal the
truth from the public.
We see th'j serious condition in so many departments of life
today that directly concern our own people. But equally serious
is a desire to cover up facts about events, such as took place on
the golf course in Freeport.
It was The Tribune that broke this story. Our office got the
first tip off from a Tribune reader at Freeport who phoned to tell
the news department about it.
A member of our staff immediately checked with the proper
official sources only to be told that certain men in the
Government wanted to keep the story under wraps because it
might damage the already badly crippled tourist business.
The reporter then followed other channels that finally led him
to one of the men who had been attacked. This man gave 77ie
Tribune a report of what had happened. He was surprised that we
called him because he had been told that an effort was being
made to muzzle the Press on the story. Indeed, we were also told
that certain media of communication had been approached by
Government and had agreed to lay off the story.
The man who gave us the story was not only upset by what
had happened but also by the report that the story would be
covered up. He was fully determined to release it to the Press
when he left the Bahamas and also to say that an attempt was
made to suppress information. I must say, however, that no one
approached The Tribune. I suppose they know that this would
have been a waste of time.
This is a lesson the Government has failed to learn.
Whenever anything happens it is always advisable for the
authorities to make a public statement as quickly as possible. This
is advisable for several reasons, the most important of which is to
ensure accuracy and possibly limit the details at a reasonable
level.
It is a mistake for any Government to believe that it can
suppress the truth. Whenever they try to do this they are
instrumental in starting a rumour market that is often far worse
than the event itself. In this way incalculable damage is done.
And the worst damage is done by the feeling that ... if the
authorities are trying to conceal information from the public ....
there must be other things going on that might be far more
serious. .....,
Cases of the kind I have described are bound to hurt the area
where they take place. But if the story is published immediately
it is soon overshadowed by even graver events that are taking
place in other parts of the world. But try to bury a story and the
speculation becomes endless .... such as happened in the Oakes
murder case.
1 will tell you a story that you probably already know through
reading this column but I will repeat it today because it fits into
thT picture.
On the morning of the Oakes murder I had an appointment
with Sir Harry Oakes and his closest friend in Nassau, Sir Harold
Christie, to see a flock of sheep he had imported from Cuba and
was pasturing on his extensive acreage at the Caves.
The appointment was for early in the morning. I wanted to
make sure 1 would not have to wait for these men when I arrived
at Westbournc, Sir Harry's residence on the grounds of the
Country Club, and so I phoned to make sure they were awake
and would be ready for me when I arrived.
Sir Harold, who had spent the night at Westbournc. answered
the call. He was hysterical. He told me that Sir Harry had been
murdered during the night. He had just come lo his room and
discovered the body on the bed.
\H\<(> contrary lo reports
in newspapers in the UK,
showed no outward sign of any
revolt. Prime MhtistM Lynden
Pindling assured newsmen it I
press conference held at the
Washington Hotel, London, on
May 23
Preparations, he said, were
going on at Abaco to celebrate
independence These
preparations were "well in
hand and everything was
peaceful and quiet."
"If there is any preparation
going on (for revolt) then it
would appear it is being
planned from persons outside
Abaco and by persons outside
the Bahamas," he said
Mr. Pindling declined to say
what the U.S. replied to his
note of protest over two
Americans "interfering" in
Bahamian affairs He said Ihe
reply was of a "rather sensitive
nature and it was probably best
not to say anything further
about it at present."
Attending the conference
with Mr. Pindling were Mr R
F. A. Roberts, Home Affairs
Minister, Mr. J. E. F.
Codnnglon. Commissioner for
the Bahamas in London, and
seven "leading citizens from
Abaco."
During the conference |
booklet outlining Abaco's case
from the government's point of
view was distributed.
The aim of the conference
was to try to "put Abaco in its
righl perspective in relation to
the rest of the Bahamas."
Ml Pindling pointed out
that Abaco was not one island
liut several with I population
of almost 6,500, with two
electoral dismals I rrington
Watkins was by no means the
spokesman for Abaco. he was
just one of the representatives,
Ml Pindling said
Agaco was not an all-white
island Its population was
about evenl) distributed 52
per cent black and some 47 per
cent white about the same
proportion as when it was first
sellled In 1784.
Mr Pindling went on: "The
harmony between the races on
Abaco is as placid .is things
usually are in the Bahamas and
in oui islands we have always
been able to solve whatever
problems we might have had in
a peaceful and amicable
manner. The question of
independence is no different.
That has been, is being and will
continue to be solved in a
peaceful and amicable
manner."
The Bahamas parliamentary
democracy was the fourth
oldest in the Commonwealth.
It had never had any other
system and knew no other
system, he itid
I rrington Watkins had not
been elected to Parliament
until September of l.isi year so
he had not come Into the
picture until then, lie then
became associated with Greater
Abaco Council
The former representatives
of the Greater Abaco Council
' He has been shot in the head," he shouted. He had arrived at
this conclusion because Sir Harry's face was covered with blood
and he probably saw a revolver nearby which Sir Harry had kept
on a table for his own protection.
it was later revealed that Sir Harry had not been shot. He had
been felled by one or more blows on the head with a blunt
instrument.
As soon as I was satisfied that Sir Harry had really been
murdered I rushed to the telegraph office and sent off a brief
message to my foreign newspaper connections simply reporting
that the multi-millionaire Baronet had been murdered.
This brief report set off a fever of inquiries by the world press
but almost immediately after my message was dispatched the
Duke of Windsor. Governor of the colony, made Ihe fatal mistake
of placing an embargo on all messages through the wireless station
in Nassau. He ordered that no information could be sent out from
the colony.
But he lost sight of the many people who would be flying from
Nassau to Miami that morning. Failing to get information from
legitimate and reliable sources newspaper reporters in Miami met
planes arriving from Nassau that day and interviewed the
passengers. Every passenger had his or her own garbled story
to tell. As a result all kinds of wild stories got into newspapers all
over the world.
Worse still .... as soon as American newspapers were informed
that the Duke of Windsor had placed an embargo on news leaving
Nassau this made the story seem bigger than it actually was.
Within a couple of hours reporters were flying into Nassau by
charter plane.
And when the authorities refused to give them any information
they went through the island interviewing people As a result all
kinds of false and damaging information was spread throughout
the world during the early days of this case.
This all happened thirty years ago but still it has been
impossible to correct false information spread at that time. This
false information finds a place in books and other publications on
the case that are published from time to time today.
There are only two ways for a government to deal with the
Press.
The most important way is for heads of government
departments to cultivate good relations with the newspapers. All
over the years, when 1 was criticizing the Old Guard in politics,
The Tribune always worked in the closest cooperation with the
police. We helped the police break some very important cases
because they trusted us and we worked with them for the good of
(he colony.
In a situation of this kind a responsible newspaper will help the
authorities to handle information in a way that, while giving the
facts, will do the least possible damage to the colony.
It's always a great mistake to create the impression that the
truth is being concealed because then the Press is forced to arrive
at its own conclusions, based on the scanty material that is at its
command.
The other way is to suppress the Press which, as experience has
shown, is fatal, especially for a country with a sensitive economy
like the Bahamas.
General Amin of Uganda has found this out. He has suppressed
legitimate information within Uganda but he cannot control the
news media outside his country. The result is that in spite of
threats made by this bloody-minded dictator the foreign press
continues to reveal his crimes against humanity, thereby
damaging the country in places where it hurts most.
This kind of thing would be really fatal for the Bahamas and
that is why, when anything goes wrong in the islands nichaitht
attack on the golf course at Freeport we try to get an accurate
story to our foreign contacts as quickly as possible. The best way
to kill a story is to tell the truth as quickly as possible.
False tumours are poison to any country and that is the danger
of suppressing information.
As long as there is a free press in a country the government can
gauge the temper of the people by what they say in their
newspapers. Cut off this flow of information and then rumour
gets into action. From that point on, no one can know what is
happening under the surface and that is why dictators have to be
surrounded by body guards, wear bullet-proof vests and drive
around in bullet proof cars.
In a free country there is no feeling of insecurity. You will
recall that when Sir Roland Symonctte was Premier of the
Bahamas the Commissioner of Police sent a policeman to '_:uard
his premises.
When Sir Roland found the policeman on his premises he asked
him what he was doing there.
He told Sir Roland he had been sent lo watch over him.
"Go and take care of the public." Sir Roland told the
policeman. "Tell the Commissioner I don't need anyone lo look
after me, I can take care of myself."
A THOUGHT FOR TODAY

the independence celebrations
committee in nbtoo, Ml
Pindling told newsmen.
Neither Watkins. now
:\\ chairman Oi the
Council i.ii Free Abaco, nor
Charles Hall, secretary, were in
fact Abaconians, he said
"Principal support for the
Council foi I tee Abaco now

I his outside support was
from certain quarters in the
UK and US from the I S
Edwin Marger, an American
lawyer and Mr. Mitchell
WerBell, an American arms
dealer
from the UK Mr Ronald
Bell. Mr. Pindling also
mentioned a Lady Rosemary
McTaggart, under whose
signature a letter was being
sent to persons in the Bahamas
Whether it was a real signature
or a pseudonym remained to
be seen. Apparently at the
Bank of Scotland in London an
account had been established
in the name of the British
Abaco Fund and the letters
claimed that the fund was
under the supervision of Lady
Rosemary, Ronald Bell and
Charles Hall
CORRESPONDENTS
Mr. Pindling mentioned that
on Monday two
correspondents were in the
Bahamas a John Ellison,
New York correspondent of
the Daily Express and Mark
Sennett, UPI correspondent
"My information is that they
have in their possession some
interesting photographs "
It was suggested by the press
al the conference that these
might be photos of arms
caches
Mr. Pindling said that Abaci
itself, contrary to reports in
newspapers in the UK showed
no outward sign of any revolt.
Preparations there for the
celebration of independence
were well in hand and
everything was peaceful and
quiet.
"If there is any preparation
going on (for revolt) then it
would appear it is being
planned from persons outside
Abaco and by persons outside
the Bahamas." he said
On July 8, 1971. when a
group of leading citizens from
Abaco led by the Deputy
Speaker, Mr. Sherlin Bootle,
saw the Governor they had
described the Abaco separatist
attempt as the "biggest land
grab" ever attempted in the
Bahamas. "If that were true in
1971 it is even more true in
May, 1973. To us it seems the
real motive behind the
separation of Abaco
"We are Bahamians and
there is really only one
Bahamas indivisible That is
how our country always was,
this is how we hope our
country will always remain
"We are firmly of the belief
that the people of Abaco did
not wish to have their Bahamas
dismembered. They did not
wish to have Abaco itself
dismembered."
QUESTIONS
Mr. Pindling answered a
large number of questions from
the press. They included:
Had the Bahamas
Government received from the
U.S. any reply to his enquiry
about the two Americans
concerned with Abaco'.'
Mr Pindling: Yes it had, but
it was of a rather sensitive
nature and it was probably best
not to say anything further
about it at present
Q. Any suggestion of foreign
governments being involved in
Abaco?
"No suggestion of that at
the present time and I don't
believe any foreign
governments are involved."
Q. Purely commercial
reasons? (for separatist
movement)
"It would appear to be."
Q. Your political opponents
are claiming that there is some
Russian involvement in the
Bahamas.
"This is brand new to
me "
Q. Have you received any
aid or overtures from foreign
countries in preparation for
your independence?
"No".
Q Do you believe thai
American interests are
collaborating with British
Interests to keep Abaco
separate?
"Yea".
Q. Do you exclude
suggestions thai CIA might
have a hand in it?
"Yes, don't pay any
attention to that report."
Asked about the future of
British people living and
working in the Bahamas and
Bahamianization, Mr. Pindling
replied that his government's
policy was that Bahamians
should hold whatever lobs they
were qualified to hold and
should he trained to hold
whatever |oba they were not
qualified lo hold
"By reason ol Ihe fact thai
we are a small country we .In

LEADER CALLS ABACO SEPARATISTS RACISTS


Opposition FNM split






wide over Abaco MP's





referendum resolution
By MIKE LOTHIAN
THE SPLIT WITHIN THE OPPOSITION FREE NATIONAL MOVEMENT over the Abaco secession movement
came to the floor of the House of Assembly yesterday when four FNM MPs supported a call for a referendum in
Abeco and four others voted with the government for its defeat. The vote was 28 to 4 against the resolution.


The Government left the
debate on the resolution
entirely to the' Opposition,
except for brief remarks by
Sherling Bootle (PLP)-Cooper's
Town, Abaco).
Backing the resolution for a
U.K. Government and U.N.
supervised referendum to
decide Abaco's future in
relation to the independent
Bahamas were Errington
Watkins (FNM-Marsh
Harbour), the mover, Cleophas
Adderley (FNM-Nassau City),
who seconded the motion,
Michael Lightbourne
(FNM-Clarence Town) and Sir
Roland Symonette
(FNM-Shirlea)..
Vehemently opposing the
measure were Opposition
Leader Kendal Isanes
(FN*MFort Montagu), Noel
Rtqprts (FNM-St. John's),
W Fountain (FNM-North
Long Island, Rum Cay and San
S"lyador) and Cyril Tynes
(PNM-Crooked Island and
Ackins).
/ .Ihe inth FM memhaber,
NorfMi Solodoi (F*IM-St.
George and Dunmore) was
absent.
The intra-party debate saw
those supporting the resolution
speak out in favour of the
Abaconians' right to internal
self-determination.
Those sticking by the party
line charged the dissidents with
ignoring the democratic
principle of majority rule.
The Opposition Leader
declared that those supporting
Abaco separatism were racists.
Opening the bebate, Mr.
Watkins told the House that
"the gist of what the
Government, through their
propaganda channel ZNS, have
been telling the people, is that
they want to go independent
united. I am sure that unity is
built on trust and confidence.
NOT UNITED
"Victimisation as practised
by this Government,
retaliations and reprisals as
mentioned in this chamber by
Government members
including the Minister of
HIalth (A. Loftus Roker) and
the Deputy Prime Minister (A.
D. Hanna) ... with this
particular type of threat how
can one expect any people to
be united?"
Mr. Watkins declared he
believed that a people had the
right to self-determination.
He pointed out that in the
general election last year the
Opposition polled 41 percent
of the popular vote.
"But my arguments are
strictly on the island of
Abaco."
He said the only time the
Government kept a promise
was when it said it would seek
Independence.
"We in the Opposition said
if we are ;elected we will not
seek independence. We didn't
win, but we went back on our
word. I am saying that on this
particular issue we in the
Opposition were very dishonest
because we betrayed 40
percent of the people in this
country."
He said that "this is the day
that some of us must come
face to face with the truth."
He went on:
"Independence for this
cquntry is unwanted,


TIFFANY '
[LAMS



NASSAU ONLY
amily ..!


unwarranted and an additional
burden on the people of this
country. The Government has
reasons for independence: to
cover up the dirt and filth.
DISMAL
"I am saying that the people
in Abaco, they are
level-headed, they can see the
dismal future for this country
as an independent country.
"We feel the only
independence this country
needs is what we have now; we
are as free as we can ever want
to be."
He said the only matters still
controlled from outside the
Bahamas *Wre defence and
external affairs. He pointed out
that therebare 700 islands and
2,400 cas spread over 1,000
square miles of water. He said
it would take a navy as large as
the Royal Navy to patrol those
waters.
"We are going independent
with four plastic boats and 900
police who are poorly trained,
under paid and in many cases
underfed. ThU t- no way this
country" could survive as an
independent country,
especially with the present
Government in power."
He went on to challenge the
Government, who he said
maintain that the majority of
the people do not wish to
retain colony status.
"I will resign my seat today
if the member for Cooper's
Town resigns his, and we hold
a referendum and let the
winner take all."
Mr. Watkins expressed the
belief that by December the
Bahamas will be a republic
ruled by a dictator.
"There will be some dashing
down in the struggle for power
and when it's over the survivors
will take the country. Abaco
doesn't .want to be involved in
this. We are a God-fearing
people. We detest violence. We
are afraid we will be taken
advantage of by a dictatorial
Government.
ANOTHER CHANCE
"We are saying if
Government is honest, give the
people of Abaco another
chance to express their views."
He admitted he saw little
chance of the Government
agreeing to the resolution.
'The Government doesn't
want to give us away because
we are the pearls of the
Commonwealth. In five years
we would be the showplace not
only of the Caribbean but of
the Western Hemisphere, while
you lead the people back to
the fishing village."
Mr. Adderley told the House
he was seconding the
resolution because "regardless
of whether I agree with the
member for Marsh Harbour or
not, it will make the matter
debatable. The only way to
find out what a man is thinking
is to get him to talk,"
Also, "I believe the people
of Abaco have a right to pursue
by lawful means the freedom
they believe will be denied
them in an independent
Bahamas.
"I don't see what good this
resolution will do at this late
stage, but I want to go on
record as supporting it."
Mr. Bootle pointed out that
he had represented northern
Abaco for more than five
years, while Mr. Watkins had
been the Marsh Harbour M.P.
for less than a year.
"Not even all the people
of Marsh Harbour are against
independence," he said. "Even
people who supported him at
first don't support him any
more. The people in Abeco are
now preparing for the
independence celebrations.


Last week we had a meeting of
the organising committee and
the man who seconded the
motion as to where we would
have the flag-raising ceremony
was Captain Leopard
Thompson, who was the FNM
candidate in Cooper's Town."
Mr. Lightbourne declared "I
am one of those who didn't
speak until it was too late. In
September 1972 when the
election was over FNM
supporters thought the party
would further oppose
independence. I am sure even
the PLP was baffled at the
attitude:. of the FNM
following the election."
REASONABLE
Sir Rolakd, former Premier
of the Bahamas, felt the
resolution was "reasonable."
He said there are many people
in the country still opposed to
nationhood.
"People in the Bahamas who
may not want to be
independent should have a way
out. a cooul be it," he
said. -, ,
Leading the attack on the
splinter group, Mr. Issacs said
"I would like to make my own
position and that of the official
Free National Movement clear.
"The impression has been
given that someone in the FNM
since the general election in
September fooled the FNM
and made decisions all on his
own. I have been accused of
going along with the PLP
against the wishes of the 40
percent who voted against
independence.
"It was an important plank
in our platform," the Leader
said, "that we were not in
favour of independence at this
time. That was said by just
about every responsible
candidate for the FNM.
"Yet after September it was
said that it was our platform
that we were against
independence, period, and that
was never so. When the
question arose after the
election, it was almost
unanimous that we were still
not in favour of independence
at this time, but the people had
spoken and if we believed in
democracy then we had to
respect the will of the people.
"This view was supported
by the overwhelming majority
of the Central Council and by a
majority of the parliamentary
group. It wasn't a question of a
few of us having enough power
to go to London to sell FNM
supporters down the drain.
"For the life of me I can't
see that we are to support a
separatist movement whereby
part of the Bahamas would
leave the country," he said.
NO EXCUSE
"Because we don't like the
things the Government is doing
doesn't excuse the action
exposed by the members for
Marsh Harbour, Clarence
Town, Shirlea and the City. I
think the majority of FNM
supporters would agree with
this.
"We are all Bahamians and
we want to remain Bahamians
and we will solve our problems
within the Bahamas and within
the context of the Bahamas. "
Mr. Isaacs said he would
have supported a referendum
for the whole Bahamas before
the elections. But if the House
agreed to a referendum in
Abaco now then there would
have to be referendums in
Long Island and other
constituencies, "and I think
that is absolutely ridiculous."
The Opposition Leader went
on to charge that "the people
who are supporting this abroad
and particularly in England are
people who would like to keep


all black people out of
England. I think that needed to
be said. I am convinced that I
needed to say it and let the
people know what the member
for Marsh Harbour and his
colleagues stand for."
Mr. Isaacs went on to say
that he had been told that if he
made that speech the Montagu
constituents would demand his
resignation.
"When I am convinced that I
no longer have the support of
the majority of the people in
Montagu you, Mr. Speaker, will
have my resignation.
"If a majority says we
follow aa certain course I can do
two ingsp. follow that course
or resign. I am sorry to say that
particular way of thinking does
not prevail among certain of
my colleagues."
Mr. Fountain declared
"there is no question in my
mind that the Bahamas is one
indivisable country and if we
had won the Government we
wouldn't have allowed Andros
to secede or even talk about
separatism.
NO SUPPORT
"I will not support the
member for Marsh Harbour. If
he came to talk strictly about
Abaco then he shouldn't Abe
sitting here, because this is an
assembly for all the Bahamas.
If he wants :to talk strictly
about Abaco let him talk
strictly in Abaco.
"I will not support the
dissection of this country into
individual fiefdoms."
Mr. Roberts said flatly, "I
will not in any way support the
resolution; I am bitterly
opposed to it."
Mr. Tynes also said he would
not support the motion and
added, "on the eve of
independence the country is
not united and, iad to say, the
Opposition also is not united."
In his reply Mr. Watkins
declared "the biggest mistake I
ever made in my life was
joining the FNM."
Throughout the debate the
Government benches, with the
exception of Mr. Bootle, said
nothing. The Government
members confined their
participation to wildly
applauding the FNM members
opposing the resolution,

yesterday supported the
referendum move were the
same four who were absent
from the House in November,
when formal legislative
recognition was given to the
electorate's decision on

Independence.
A source said the four at
that time were told by the
party that if they felt they
could not support the

'We should follow Christ's teaching,



help aged, seek right pirorities &



mature politically' says Catholic Bishop

By MIKE LOTHIAN
AN INDEPENDENT BAHAMAS Must base its aspirations on the teachings of Jesus Christ to
ensure its "welfare and greatness," Roman Catholic Bishop of Nassau Paul Leonard Hagrty


declared last night.
He preached the sermon
before a packed congregation
attendingg the church's official
pre-Independence con-
celebrated high mass at Our
1,ady's Church, Young Street.
"The welfare and greatness
of our nation depends not so
much upon its commercial or
industrial development as upon
the adherence and loyalty to
the principles of integrity and
faith in God on the part of the
people."
He said that men
occasionally aspired to the
conditions of a country, a
people, a culture or a way of
life that is not his own.
"In all areas of our life, as
the Bahamas becomes a
sovereign nation, Jesus Christ,
our Lord and Saviour, must be
our point of reference," the
Bishop said.
"Economically, we must
realise that Christ shared
everything, including His life,
with us. We then must share
with all men. 'A new
commandment I give you, that
you have love one for another,
even as I have loved you.' We
must be concerned about
everyone living in the Bahamas,
of whatever age, of whatever
condition. We must help our
old people, we must let them
know that they are important
to us, that they have an
important contribution to
make to the life and progress
of our nation.
COME TO ME
"We must extend our hearts
and hands to all who seek
asylum on our shores. 'Come
to me, all you who labour and
are heavily burdened, and I will
refresh you."
"A most important lesson
we all must learn," Bishop
Leonard said, "is that hard
work and sacrifice is basic to
building a nation.
Independence will not come
easy, it will be no bed of roses.
'Did you not know that Christ
must suffer and so enter into
his glory?'
"Those of us who are
involved in labour must be
encouraged to see that each
man does his very best
according to his talents, and
that a just and living wage must
be given for responsible labour.
Many of us are involved in
work that demands we render
services to our fellow man and
particularly to our visitors.
Each one of us must see the
dignity of work and follow
Christ, who worked hard and
came to 'serve, not to be
served.'
"Our young people and
God has blessed us with a high
percentage of them must
seek to have right priorities and
not seek material things over
spiritual and lasting values. We,
on our part, must seek to
provide for our youth a secure


future and a climate in which
our economy can thrive and
jobs may be available for those
coming from our schools.
"Politically, we need very
much to become mature.
Members of differing parties
must come together and work
together in a spirit of charity
and friendliness. There must be
no seeking of revenge or of
causing someone to suffer
because they do not think or
believe as we do. We must be
convinced that to belong to a
different political party does
not make people love their
country less.
"From a social point of view
we must get to know each
other better; we must seek to
understand our neighbour and
to be better understood by
him. We have always been
known as a friendly people;
nothing must destroy this spirit
of neighbourliness, not racism,
nationalism, political factions
or power groups," the Bishop
declared.
ENDANGER
He said also that "a wrong
idea about independence could
endanger our people seriously.
"To be independent does
not mean that we are against
others. Independence does not
mean that we should separate
ourselves entirely from the rest
of mankind. Today, absolute
independence is impossible and
would, be contrary to human
nature.";
Bishop Leonard was the
chief celebrant of the mass.
Concelebrating with him were
Apostolic Delegate Archbishop
Luigi Barbarito, Archbishop
Metropolitan Samuel E. Carter
of Kingston, Bishop Kenneth
R. Turner of Lishui, China,
who has been working in the
Bahamas since his expulsion
from that country, and more
than 25 parish priests from
throughout the Bahamas.
Archbishop Barbarito was to
have presented personal
greetings from Pope Paul VI to
the Bahamas last night, but the
greetings had not reached
Haiti, his headquarters, by the
time he left for Nassau on
Tuesday.
However, the note was
released to the press in Rome
today. The Associated Press
reported the letter was
addressed to Bishop Leonard,
and in it the Pontiff said he
associated himself "with the
joy of the celebration" of
Independence Day.
He asked the Bishop to
"convey our felicitations and
good wishes to the Governor
General, Prime Minister,
Government and people of the
Bahamas at the beginning of
this new epoch in the history
of the islands."
Contacted this morning,
Bishop Leonard said he was
"overjoyed" at hearing of the


contents of the letter. He said
the press would be informed
when he received the actual
letter.
RESPONSIBILITY
Last night* Aadbbishop
Barbarito said "before long the
people of the Bahamas will
begin a new chapter of their
history. The goals ahead are
exciting and exalting, but they
demand also a higher sense of
responsibility, of moral
courage and commitments.
Peoples are destined to
greatness or doomed to decay
according to the standard of
their moral values, political
ideals and social
structures." Archbishop
Carter told the congregation:
"As you stand on the
launching pad with eager
expectation waiting for the
count-down, let me assure you
that your brothers and sisters
of the Caribbean are one with
you, rejoice with you on this
your glorious achievement of
nationhood, the fulfillment of
the dreams of your leaders who
dared to dream and asked why
not.
"May God be gracious unto
you, may the light of his
countenance shine upon your
many sun-filled islands, may
God bless you and make you a
God-fearing nation, a holy
nation, an instrument of peace
in the world."
Last night's mass was
preceded by a procession of
representatives of all the
Catholic parishes in the
Bahamas.
Hung over the altar was a
large banner bearing the words
of Pope Paul in his encyclicle
on the development of
peoples:
"Nations are each the
architects of their own
development and this task and
responsibility are of such
magnitude that they will never
be able to accomplish it if they
live in isolation."
Among the dignitaries
attending the mass were the
Governor, Sir John Paul and
Lady Paul, Governor General
designate Sir Milo Butler -
who read the epistle and
Lady Butler and a number of
parliamentarians.

Mr. Pindling's declaration
was made in the House of
Assembly yesterday in answer
to questions raised by FNM

WASHINGTON (AP) Representative Paul McCloskey suggests it is the
duty of the House to conduct a careful and Impartial inquiry into the
possibility of instituting preliminary Impeachment proceedings against

President's May 22nd statement raised serious questions as to whether
probable cause exists to believe the President was guilty of obstructing
justice.
In the statement, Nixon said he instructed his aides to ensure that the
Watergate investigation not expose either an unrelated covert operation of
the C.I.A. or the activities of the White House investigations unit.
McCloskey said the President is entitled to the presumption of
Innocence, but he said the facts warrant an inquiry by the House.

don't want to know."
Sloan said also that Jeb
Stuart Magruder told him he
might have to commit perjury
and that he told both
presidential counsel John W.
Dean III and Watergate
prosecutors about it.
Sloan said he told Dean he
felt so strongly "about what
Magruder had forced on me in
the way of a personal decision
... that if Magruder were ever
presented before any Senate
committee for confirmation to
a high public office, I would go
to that committee and testify
against him."
Dean assured him that
would never happen, said
Sloan, who resigned as
campaign treasurer because of
the Watergate scandal.
Sloan had given Watergate
conspirator G. Gordon Liddy
199,000 dollars in campaign
funds. After five men Liddy
had recruited were arrested in
the Watergate burglary, he said,
Magruder told him the amount
would have to be scaled down
when investigators started
questioning.
HUGE FUNDS
He was also asked why he
didn't question a disbursement
of $250,000 to Gordon
Strachan, an assistant to White
House chief of staff H. R.
Haldeman. That money and
the sums that went to Liddy,
Sloan said, were part of
1,777,000 dollars cash funds
Sloan gave to various people
with authorization from higher
officials.
He said the meeting with
Ehrlichman was in the White
House on July 23, five weeks
after five of Liddy's
co-conspirators were arrested
in the Deomcratic Party
headquarters in the Watergate
office building.
Sloasnsaid he had become
increasingly concerned that the
$199,000 he had turned over
to Liddy had been used to
finance the burglary and
bugging and had expressed that
fear to a number of people,
including White House
personnel.

WASHINGTON (AP) -
s Special prosecutor Archibald
a Cox asked a federal judge
Wednesday to order the Senate
Watergate committee to hear
n potentially incriminating
n testimony in closed session or
at least without radio and
n television coverage.
Cox's appeal was in
connection with a motion from
the Senate committee asking
Chief U.S. Dist. Court Judge
John Sirica to grant inimunity
to ousted White House counsel
John W. Dean III and Jeb
Stuart Magruder, former
deputy director of the Nixon
campaign committee.
Cox said he believes the
Judge has no choice but to
grant a limited form of
immunity if the conditions
contained In the law are' met.
"We believe the express
conditions have been
satisfied," he said.
But Cox's mfemorandum
argued that Sirica has the
power to set additional
conditions.
"The most appropriate
order would be one requiring
the testimony to be taken in
executive session without
subsequent public disclosure,"
Cox memorandum said.
But he added: "Bearing in
mind the decision of the
Senate select committee to
push forward with public
hearings, the most appropriate
condition would seem to be
the exclusion, during the giving
of compelled self-incriminating
testimony, of live or recorded
radio, television and other
coverage not permitted at a
criminal trial."

Stands and Mitchell, along

from a 200,000 dollar

Sloan said the financial
problems in last year's
campaign came because the
financing law changed April 7,
producing a "bulge" of money
coming in at that time some
6 million dollars on the last
day. He suggested the law
should be given another
chance. "It may well get to the
point where the only way to
fund a campaign is through
public funding," Sloan said.
"Mike it so that it's in no one's
interest in business to
contribute."

IMPEACHMENT

TALK IS


QUICKLY HALTED

WASHINGTON (AP)- The
first formal House discussion
of possible impeachment of
President Nixon was halted on
a technicality after only six
minutes Wednesday night.
A speech on the subject by
Rep. Paul Mc(loskey (R.
Calif.) was stopped on demand
of Rep. Earl F. Landgrebe (R.,
Ind.) for a quorum that the
House could not muster.
About 60 of the needed 218
members were present.
McCloskey said he believes
"that time seems almost at
hand" when the House must
consider formal impeachment
proceedings "unless, the
President makes a full and fair
disclosure of everything he
knows and when he learned
it."
Landgrebe said he has no
vendetta against McCloskey
and represents no wing of the
Republican Party. But, he
added:
"I don't think any member
of Congress Republican,
Democrat or Socialist should
be on the floor talking about
impeachment without a
1uorum present.'

SPACE CENTRE, TEXAS (AP) Skylab atronauts staged a
rehearsal Wednesday of a tricky spce wak salage job which aIy
save their troubled mission. At the seme tme another battey
weekend and ntensified the power problem aboard the


distrefd space station.
"I'm not as optimistic as
you are," said Skylab 1
commander Charles Conrad,
the man with the toughest role
in the two-man stage-walking
repair job. "But we'll give it a
go."
Conrad and Dr. Joseph P.
Kerwin worked with ropes,
hooks and tools, practicing the
techniques they will use
Thursday in an attempt to cut
or loosen an aluminum strip
fouling a power panel wing on
the side of their
electricity-starved Skylab.
"Well know better when we
see it," said Kerwin during the
rehearsal, "but our feeling is
we've got about a 50-50 chance
to pull it off."
Skylab lost another 80 to
100 watts from its
already-short supply of
electricity Wednesday when
power from a battery system
dropped by one-half to
one-third. Two other battery
systems failed earlier in the
mission.
"Right now we have 16 of
18 batteries working, with the
prospects of having only 15 of
18," said flight director Charles
Lewis.
WARNINGS
He warned that the
astronauts, like a homeowner
on earth trying to save heating
fuel, may have to conserve
power by closing off large
rooms in Skylab and retreating
to two small compartments if
the weakening battery fails and
if they are unable to deploy
the wing.
However, said Lewis
successful deployment of the
wing "will get us out of the
woods on power."
Skylab now has a maximum
of only 4,100 watts of power,
less than half its designed
needs. Total loss of the battery
would drop that to about
4,000 watts. The wing could
add about 3,000 watts, enough
to perform. the full Skylab I
experiment programme.
The astronauts also aimed
powerful earth resources
cameras aboard Skylab at
Hurricane Ava, a Pacific Ocean
storm 700 miles off the coast
of Acapulco, Mexico.
Two of the 18 available
batteries already have failed,

and Lewis told newsmen that if
the third went out, and the
panel could not be freed, the
astronauts would have to
drastically curtail their
research.
Lewis said they might have
to abandon the huge workshop
area of the station to save
energy and retreat to two
smaller rooms where they
could conduct limited earth
resources, solar observatory
and medical experiments.
The flight director said the
third battery began losing
power Tuesday night,
apparently because of a short
circuit in a transistor, and was
producing only about one-half
to two-thirds of its potential.
As the astronauts awakened
for their 13th day in space, just
one shy of the American
record for a single flight.
Conrad reported they had
stayed up 90 minutes late
Tuesday night to do some
homework on the space walk.
"We completely built the
EVA Extravehicular Activity
pole and the BET Beam
Erection Tether -" Conrad
said.
HANDRAIL
The 25-foot metal pole will
be used by the commander as a
handrail when he moves along
the outside cf the Skylab to
the jammed solar wing. If he
succeeds in freeing it with his
tool kit, he'll use the rope-like
tether to hoist the panel into
position.
Conrad, Dr. Joseph P.
Kerwin and Paul J. Weitz, also
planned a half-day of
experiments Wednesday.
Kerwin, a physician, drew
blood from each crewman in a
continuing medical study, and
he and Weitz scheduled time
on a battery of telescopes,
Mission control advised
them to survey an area of the
sun where they might spot a
solar flare and asked them to
point their Earth resources
cameras later at a hurricane off
the west coast of Mexico.

EUSPE
LONDON (AP)- The U.S. dollar
Improved strongly Wednesday on
European money markets.
The pree of gold, closely tied to
the dola health ia recent market
fluctuations, sagpd in the bullion
markets.
Dealers mid the American
caaescy's smeewed strength was
due in lare mesM to advance
reports from Wahington that
Pihasidst Nixon was moving to
tighten up his administration's
SconomIC policies.
etinft LArd, Nixon's new
domestic policy chef, followed up
thoe port lter Wednesday by
disclosing in Washington that Nixon
plan stronger moves against
inflation and in defense of the
dollar.
But some dealers in Europe
attributed the dollar's recovery to
profit-taking by speculators after
almost a week of steady decline.
They expected the dollar to start
down again later in the week.
The dolls climbed from Tokyo
to Paris and, in reverse reaction,
gold closed at $120.50 an ounce in
London, down from Tuesday's
record high.
Since March 1, the dollar has
fallen by 82 per cent against the
West German mark, by 6 per cent
in relation to the franc, 3.9 per cent
against the Dutch guilder and 2.9
per cent against the Swiss franc, but
only one per cent against the
Japanese yen.
This decline has worried
European governments and
exporters because it added to the
price advantage for U.S. goods on
word markets.'
President Georges Pompidou of
France said Tuesday the United
States ought to start defending the
dollar by selling its holdings of
foreign currencies and gold. Other
French officials said the dollar
slump amounted to its third
devaluation In les than 18 months.
The British government
announced Wednesday that the
country had an over-all surplus of
$175 million in foreign payments,
despite a trade deficit of
approximately $900 million during
the first three months of the year.
The influx of unwanted dollars
was even greater in some other
countries, notably West Germany.
Nevertheless, the dollar rose at
the opening of Europe's exchanges
after a strong closing in both Tokyo
and Hong Kong. In Frankfurt, the
dollar was up more than two
pfennigs at the opening from
Tuesday's closing 2.59 marks. In
the afternoon, it jumped to 2.64
marks.
Trading was moderate nearly
everywhere except in Paris, where It
was described as active. The dollar
closed there at 4.2850 francs, a
seven-centime rise from Tuesday.
The dollar was up two Swiss
centimes at 3.06 franca in Zurich.
The British pound lost more than
a cent in value apd was quoted at
$2.5670 n late saUlf.'

By ETIENNE DUPUCH
SOME terrible things are happening in crime in the Bahamas
nowadays .... things that are not a part of the Bahamian
character.
They are a part of a pattern that is spreading through former
British colonies in this hemisphere to give them a bad name
among what Minister of Tourism Clement Maynard has described
as "quality tourists". "Quality" in this case means tourists with
money to spend.
The four most startling events in the Bahamas recently have
been the case of kidnapping of a child at Freeport; the case of
tourists being attacked by armed men while playing a round of
golf on a course in Freeport; a bank robbery, also at Freeport,
and the most recent case of the brutal murder of an American
housewife in Nassau while her husband was away on business and
her three young children slept in nearby rooms .
Three of these attacks against visitors to the islands were
allegedly done by Bahamians. Many other violent crimes have
been committed at Freeport but most of them were by
foreigners.
In all my years of experience in the Bahamas the only other
case of alleged kidnapping I can recall took place in Nassau over
30 years ago when an American came to the island and took his
child from her mother, who had been awarded its custody by an
American court. No money was involved. It was just a case of a
man wanting to get possession of his own child.
He tried to get away with the child in a small private plane but
he was intercepted and charged in the Magistrate's Court with the
offence.
I remember that the late Hon. A. F. Adderley defended the
man and, as far as I can remember, got him off with a light
sentence because, up to that time, the Bahamas had not
anticipated such a crime as kidnapping and so no law on the
Statute Books of the colony covered the kidnapping part of the
case. It was then that a law for this crime was passed by the
Legislature.
An attack on tourists, such as took place at Freeport, is a type
of crime that is new to Bahamians, as also is bank robbery. A
couple of bank cases have also occurred in Nassau but they were
all carried out in an amateurish way, the criminals were quickly
apprehended by the Police and dealt with by the courts. In one
case a man was hanged because he foolishly shot the Bahamian
manager of a small Royal Bank of Canada branch.
It is not the purpose of this article to discuss crime as such in
the Bahamas. I will do this in another article when I try to
analyse the reasons for so many of our formerly law-abiding
people suddenly displaying a terrible greed for money, so much
so that some of them are now trying to get-rich-quick by violent
means.
The thing I am going to discuss today is also a serious aspect of
life in the colony. It is a desire by the authorities to conceal the
truth from the public.
We see this serious condition in so many departments of life
today that directly concern our own people. But equally serious
is a desire to cover up facts about events, such as took place on
the golf course in Freeport.
It was The Tribune that broke this story. Our office got the
first tip off from a Tribune reader at Freeport who phoned to tell
the news department about it.
A member of our staff immediately checked with the proper
official sources only to be told that certain men in the
Government wanted to keep the story under wraps because it
might damage the already badly crippled tourist business.
The reporter then followed other channels that finally led him
to one of the men who had been attacked. This man gave The
Tribune a report of what had happened. He was surprised that we
called him because he had been told that an effort was being
made to muzzle the Press on the story. Indeed, we were also told
that certain media of communication had been approached by
Government and had agreed to lay off the story.
The man who gave us the story was not only upset by what
had happened but also by the report that the story would be
covered up. He was fully determined to release it to the Press
when he left the Bahamas and also to say that an attempt was
made to suppress information. I must say, however, that no one
approached The Tribune. I suppose they know that this would
have been a waste of time.


This is a lesson the Government has failed to learn.
Whenever anything happens it is always advisable for the
authorities to make a public statement as quickly as possible. This
is advisable for several reasons, the most important of which is to
ensure accuracy and possibly limit the details at a reasonable
level..
It .is a mistake for any Government to believe that it can
suppress the truth. Whenever they try to do this they are
instrumental in starting a rumour market that is often far worse
than the event itself. In this way incalculable damage is done.
And the worst damage is done by the feeling that ... if the
authorities are trying to conceal information from the public ....
there must be other things going on that might be far more
serious.
Cases of the kind I have described are bound to hurt the area
where they take place. But if the story is published immediately
it is soon overshadowed by even graver events that are taking
place in other parts of the world. But try to bury a story and the
speculation becomes endless .... such as happened in the Oakes
murder case.

I will tell you a story that you probably already know through
reading this column but I will repeat it today because it fits into
the picture.
On the morning of the Oakes murder I had an appointment
with Sir Harry Oakes and his closest friend in Nassau, Sir Harold
Christie, to see a flock of sheep he had imported from Cuba and
was pasturing on his extensive acreage at the Caves.
The appointment was for early in the morning. I wanted to
make sure I would not have to wait for these men when I arrived
at Westbourne, Sir Harry's residence on the grounds of the
Country Club, and so I phoned to make sure they were awake
and would be ready for me when I arrived.
Sir Harold, who had spent the night at Westbourne, answered
the call. He was hysterical. He told me that Sir Harry had been
murdered during the night. He had just come to his room and
discovered the body on the bed.


PM discounts revolt, trouble or CIA involvement in Abaco


I


ABACO, contrary to reports
in newspapers in the UK,
showed no outward sign of any
revolt, Prime Minister Lynden
Pindling assured newsmen at a
press conference held at the
Washington Hotel, London, on
May 23.
Preparations, he said, were
going on at Abaco to celebrate
independence. These
preparations were "well in
hand and everything was
peaceful and quiet."
"If there is any preparation
going on (for revolt) then it
would appear it is being
planned from persons outside
Abaco and by persons outside
the Bahamas," he said.
Mr. Pindling declined to say
what the U.S. replied to his
note of protest over two
Americans "interfering" in
Bahamian affairs. He said the
reply was of a "rather sensitive
nature and it was probably best
not to say anything further
about it at present."
Attending the conference
with Mr. Pindling were Mr. R.
F. A. Roberts, Home Affairs
Minister, Mr. J. E. F.
Codrington, Commissioner for
the Bahamas in London, and
seven "leading citizens from
Abaco."
During the conference a
booklet outlining Abaco's case
from the government's point of
view was distributed.
The aim of the conference
was to try to "put Abaco in its
right perspective in relation to
the rest of the Bahamas."


"He has been shot in the head," he shouted. He had arrived at
this conclusion because Sir Harry's face was covered with blood
and he probably saw a revolver nearby which Sir Harry had kept
on a table for his own protection.
It was later revealed that Sir Harry had not been shot. He had
been felled by one or more blows on the head with a blunt
instrument.
As soon as I was satisfied that Sir Harry had really been
murdered I rushed to the telegraph office and sent off a brief
message to my foreign newspaper connections simply reporting
that the multi-millionaire Baronet had been murdered.
This brief report set off a fever of inquiries by the world press
but almost immediately after my message was dispatched the
Duke of Windsor, Governor of the colony, made the fatal mistake
of placing an embargo on all messages through the wireless station
in Nassau. He ordered that no information could be sent out from
the colony.

But he lost sight of the many people who would be flying from
Nassau to Miami that morning. Failing to get information from
legitimate and reliable sources newspaper reporters in Miami met
planes arriving from Nassau that day and interviewed the
passengers. Every passenger had his or her own garbled story
to tell. As a result all kinds of wild stories got into newspapers all
over the world.
Worse still .... as soon as American newspapers were informed
that the Duke of Windsor had placed an embargo on news leaving
Nassau this made the story seem bigger than it actually was.
Within a couple of hours reporters were flying into Nassau by
charter plane.
And when the authorities refused to give them any information
they went through the island interviewing people As a result all
kinds of false and damaging information was spread throughout
the world during the early days of this case.
This all happened thirty years ago but still it has been
impossible to correct false information spread at that time. This
false information finds a place in books and other publications on
the case that are published from time to time today.

There are only two ways for a government to deal with the
Press.
The most important way is for heads of government
departments to cultivate good relations with the newspapers. All
over the years, when I was criticizing the Old Guard in politics,
The Tribune always worked in the closest cooperation with the
police. We helped the police break some very important cases
because they trusted us and we worked with them for the good of
the colony.
In a situation of this kind a responsible newspaper will help the
authorities to handle information in a way that, while giving the
facts, will do the least possible damage to the colony.
It's always a great mistake to create the impression that the
truth is being concealed because then the Press is forced to arrive
at its own conclusions, based on the scanty material that is at its
command.
The othet way is to suppress the Press which, as experience has
shown, is fatal, especially for a country with a sensitive economy
like the Bahamas.
General Amin of Uganda has found this out. He has suppressed
legitimate information within Uganda but he cannot control the
news media outside his country. The result is that in spite of
threats made by this bloody-minded dictator the foreign press
continues to reveal his crimes against humanity, thereby
damaging the country in places where it hurts most.
This kind of thing would be really fatal for the Bahamas and
that is why, when anything goes wrong in the islands-such as the
attack on the golf course at Freeport we try to get an accurate
story to our foreign contacts as quickly as possible. The best way
to kill a story is to tell the truth as quickly as possible.
False rumours are poison to any country and that is the danger
of suppressing information.
As long as there is a free press in a country the government can
gauge the temper of the people by what they say in their
newspapers. Cut off this flow of information and then rumour
gets into action. From that point on, no one can know what is
happening under the surface and that is why dictators have to be
surrounded by body guards, wear bullet-proof vests and drive
around in bullet proof cars.
In a free country there is no feeling of insecurity. You will
recall that when Sir Roland Symonette was Premier of the
Bahamas the Commissioner of Police sent a policeman to guaid
his premises.
When Sir Roland found the policeman on his premises he asked
him what he was doing there.
He told Sir Roland he had been sent to watch over him.
"Go and take care of the public," Sir Roland told the
policeman. "Tell the Commissioner I don't need anyone to look
after me. I can take care of myself."

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY
O what a tangled web we weave,
When first we practise to deceive.
SCOTT.


Mr. Pindling pointed out
that Abaco was not one island
but several with a population
of almost 6,500, with 'two
electoral districts. Errington
Watkins was by no means the
spokesman for Abaco, he was
just one of the representatives,
Mr. Pindling said.
Agaco was not an all-white
island. Its population was
about evenly distributed 52
per cent black and some 47 per
cent white about the same
proportion as when it was first
settled in 1784.
Mr. Pindling went on: "The
harmony between the races on
Abaco is as placid as things
usually are in the Bahamas and
in our islands we have always
been able to solve whatever
problems we might have had in
a peaceful and amicable
manner. The question of
independence is no different.
That has been, is being and will
continue to be solved in a
peaceful and amicable
manner."
The Bahamas parliamentary
democracy was the fourth
oldest in the Commonwealth.
It had never had any other
system and knew no other
system, he said.
Errington Watkins had not
been elected to Parliament
until September of last year so
he had not come into the
picture until then. He then
became associated with Greater
Abaco Council.
The former representatives
of the Greater Abaco Council


Q. Your political opponents
are claiming that there is some
Russian involvement in the
Bahamas.


"This is brand new to
me."
Q. Have you received any
aid or overtures from foreign
countries in preparation for
your independence?
"No".
Q. Do you believe that
American interests are
collaborating with British
interests to keep Abaco
separate?
"Yes".
Q. Do you exclude
suggestions that CIA might
have a hand in it?
"Yes, don't pay any
attention to that report."
Asked about the future of
British people living and
working in the Bahamas and
Bahamianization, Mr. Pindling
replied that his government's
policy was that Bahamians
should hold whatever jobs they
were qualified to hold and


should be trained to hold
whatever jobs they were not
qualified to hold.
"By reason of the fact that
we are a small country we do
not expect to be able to fill all
the positions that will require
any one state to function
efficiently. So there is going to
be a need for expertise in any
event. That expertise would be
drawn, some from the U.K.
some from U.S., some from
auspices of U.N. and so on."
Q. So you don't expect a
mass exodus?
"I haven't met one fellow
who wants to leave the


Bahamas.
Q Any impressions of
preparations for militancy in
Abaco arms being imported?
"We have heard so. The first
correct information we are
likely to receive may be in the
pictures in the possession of
the two correspondents."
Q. A newspaper yesterday
(May 22) said that one reason
tor your visit to Britain was to
.tell the British Government to
keep their noses out of
Bahamian affairs
"Good job I don't pay
attention to everything I see in
the newspapers. I think this


was a reporter's comment."
Mr. Pindling said he had
received the fullest
co-operation from the FCO.
Specifically his present visit
had been to appraise the FCO
of the situation generally in the
Bahamas and in particular on
Abaco and give them the latest
information at his disposal so
that they would be well
equipped and well informed on
the situation.
Asked about territorial
waters Mr. Pindling said an
independent Bahamas would
be taking part in the projected
Law of the Sea conference and
Page 10, Col. 2


were now actively serving on
the independence celebrations
committee in Abaco, Mr.
Pindling told newsmen.
Neither Watkins, now
apparently chairman of the
Council for Free Abaco, nor
Charles Hall, secretary, were in
fact Abaconians, he said.
"Principal support for the
Council for Free Abaco now
emanates from outside Abaco
and not in or on Abaco." said
the Premier.
This outside support was
from certain quarters in the
UK and US. From the US -
Edwin Marger, an American
lawyer and Mr. Mitchell
WerBell, an American arms
dealer.
From the UK Mr. Ronald
Bell. Mr. Pindling also
mentioned a Lady Rosemary
McTaggart, under whose
signature a letter was being
sent to persons in the Bahamas.
Whether it was a real signature
or a pseudonym remained to
be seen. Apparently at the
Bank of Scotland in London an
account had been established
in the name of the British
Abaco Fund and the letters
claimed that the fund was
under the supervision of Lady
Rosemary, Ronald Bell and
Charles Hall.
CORRESPONDENTS
Mr. Pindling mentioned that
on Monday two
correspondents were in the
Bahamas a John Ellison,
New York correspondent of
the Daily Express and Mark
Sennett, UPI correspondent.
"My information is that they
have in their possession some
interesting photographs."
It was suggested by the press
at the conference that these
might be photos of arms
caches.
Mr. Pindling said that Abacc
itself, contrary to reports in
newspapers in the UK showed
no outward sign of any revolt.
Preparations there for the
celebration of independence
were well in hand and
everything was peaceful and
quiet.
"If there is any preparation
going on (for revolt) then it
would appear it is being
planned from persons outside
Abaco and by persons outside
the Bahamas," he said.
On July 8, 1971, when a
group of leading citizens from
Abaco led uy the Deputy
Speaker, Mr. Sherlin Bootle,
saw the Governor they had
described the Abaco separatist
attempt as the "biggest land
grab" ever attempted in the
Bahamas. "If that were true in
1971 it is even more true in
May, 1973. To us it seems the
real motive behind the
separation of Abaco.
"We are Bahamians and
there is really only one
Bahamas indivisible. That is
how our country always was,
this is how we hope our
country will always remain
"We are firmly of the belief
that the people of Abaco did
not wish to have their Bahamas
dismembered. They did not
wish to have Abaco itself
dismembered."
QUESTIONS
Mr. Pindling answered a
large number of questions from
the press. They included:
Had the Bahamas
Government received from the
U.S. any reply to his enquiry
about the two Americans
concerned with Abaco?
Mr. Pindling: Yes it had, but
it was of a rather sensitive
nature and it was probably best
not to say anything further
about it at present.
Q. Any suggestion of foreign
governments being involved in
Abaco?
"No suggestion of that at
the present time and I don't
believe any foreign
governments are involved."
Q. Purely commercial
reasons? (for separatist
movement)
"It would appear to be."

DEAR ABBY: Our daughter is 28 and a nurse. She
took a job several thousand miles from home and has been
gone nearly a year. We were hoping she'd come home last
Christmas, but she said she'd come home next summer and
bring her fiance. [She had written about a young man she'd
fallen in love with, describing his "beautiful attitudes, bril-
liant mind, and outstanding character."
Now we know why she didn't bring him home for
Christmas. He's an amputee! He lost both legs Just below
the knee when he stepped on a mine near Saigon. We
learned this yesterday from a letter she wrote us.
We are heartsick. She's such a beautiful girl and could
easily get a whole man. Abby, how do parents adjust to
knowing their daughter will spend the rest of her life car-
Snag for an invalid? HEARTBROKEN PARENTS

DEAR ABBY: Only my mother knows my real age
because I've been lying about it for several years. I am en-

Altbo I've never lied to my fiance about anything else,
ve repeated that lie about my age dozens of times in his
presence, with friends, applying for graduate school, credit
eards, etc.
What I want your advice on is this: Must my fiance
ever know my real age? It would be so embarrassing to
tal him now. He thinks he's two years older than sr, when
asally he is two months younger. OLDER WOMAN

NASSAU HARBOUR TODAY--



The kaleidoscopic lifeline of Nassau


By GORD LOMER
FIFTY YARDS AND 50 YEARS from Nassau's bustling Bay Street is the paradox of Nassau Harbour, a blend of the bygone days
of Nassau's colourful past, the reality of her present, and her hope for the future.


Nassau Harbour is the
economic lifeline of the city,
the traditional hub around
which Nassau turns. Yet the
harbour represents something
different to everyone who uses
it or who is even aware of it.
To the sportfisherman it
represents a place to navigate
through and get out of to reach
the rich fishing grounds of the
Tongue of the Ocean or Exuma
Sound. To the conch fisherman
it represents a place to return
to in order to sell his goods.
Nassau Harbour represents
an airstrip to small amphibious
aircraft. It represents a barrier
to a gambler, anxious to get to
Paradise Island.
The narrow waterway
represented an engineering
challenge to the builders of the


TIMMY
CLIFF


AND 10:10

sleek curve of high-rise bridge
that now bisects the harbour.
To the yachtsman it means a
welcoming lighthouse and a
safe refuge after the rigours of
the open sea.
To youngsters it means a
place to swim, a place to catch
little fish, a place to gather
shells and a place to water ski.
To an oldtimer, it might mean
a place to sit quietly on a dock
and reminisce of days of
bootlegging and rum running.
Nassau Harbour represents
the first glimpse of a foreign
land to a tourist arriving on a
cruise ship. To the master of
that same ship, it represents a
modern and efficient deep
water harbour. And to her
crew, a stepping stone to a
couple of days of R&R.
PHYSICAL BOUNDS
Physically, the harbour is
bounded on the north by
Paradise Island, on the south
by colourful Woodes Roger
Walk, several commercial
freight docks, a host of fine
homes, several modem
marinas, a yacht club and a
tiny fort, which "guards" the
eastern approach to the
waterway.
The western end is marked
by the famous Paradise Island
Lighthouse, a beacon visible
for seven miles, and the
man-made Arawak Cay, which
is soon to be developed into a
hotel, convention, recreation,
marina, shopping, office
complex.

Woodes Rogers Walk, named
for the first Royal Governor of
the Bahamas who brought law
and order to the country in
1718, is a kaleidoscope of
colour, the visual equivalent to
the Bahamas Police Band
sounds, or an electrically
amplified rock and roll group.
A rainbow of vegetables and
fruit gleams from a host of tiny
stands.
Fishermen, the anchor lines
from their boats courtesying in
the wake of a docking cruise
liner, clean and sell conch and
fish to passing shoppers, both
residents and visitors alike.
Inter-island boats take on
and discharge loads of
passengers, bottled gas, fish
traps, rope, soft drinks and
empty soft drink bottles, and a
host of other necessities of life
in the remote communities of
the far-flung offshore islands.
They bring stocks of
bananas, bushels of sour
oranges, conch, grouper,
sapadillas, turtles, pineapples,
watermelons, and of course,
guavas, egg plant, mangoes, and
onions, all for the Nassau
market. Much of the produce is
sold directly off the boats,
amid much loud but friendly
haggling over prices, which are
generally well below those in
the supermarket.
MARKET RANGE
The market range along
Woodes Rogers Walk is a
cacophony of sounds and
colour, a busy thoroughfare
that flanks one of the most
interesting harbours in the
Western Hemisphere.
Further east along the
harbour, the sounds change
from those of people to those
of machines, as huge cranes
swing containerized cargo from
boat to dock, and vice versa.
And yet further along the
sounds emerge into those of
woodworking, as fishermen,
their boats tilted at rakish
angles near the Paradise Island
Bridge, hammer and saw to
repair damaged and aging craft.
Here, too, at Potters Cay,
the sounds and smells of the
market take over again as boats
unload large cargoes destined
for the Government Produce
Exchange, or for transshipment
to American and Caribbean
markets.
Continue east along the
shore and bustling Nassau
Yacht Haven, the headquarters
for the Bahamas largest charges charter
fishing fleet, dominates the
shoreline. Yacht Haven is also
headquarters for most of the
diving activity in Nassau, as
well as home for a host of local
yachts and sailing craft.
Beyond Yacht Haven are
Bayshore and Brown's marinas,
Nassau Harbour Club and


Marina, and a line of
picturesque homes reaching
right to the brink of the
harbour and the Nassau Yacht
Club, where fleets of Star class
and cruising yachts call home.
Fort Montagu, a tiny
embattlement of thick stone
pins one end of Montagu Beach
to shore, and just beyond the
other end is the Royal Nassau
Sailing Club, a haven of Snipe
class sailing activity.
CLEAR WATERWAY
The waters of Nassau,
flushed twice a day by tides,
remain remarkably clear. Both
ends are open and the flowing
tides tend to sweep the
waterway with the regularity
of a matronome.
The harbour has changed
over the years. New docks have
been added, a causeway to
Potters Cay was built, marinas
have been improved. Yet much
of the quaint ambience of the
harbour remains. Fishermen
still mend their canvas sails by
hand along the shoreline, and
still bum little wood fires to
heat the tar for caulking their
boats. Youngsters still dive off
docks to retrieve coins thrown
in by tourists.
And 50 years hasn't changed
much the shape of the boat or
the taste of the produce that
add so much to the colour of
Nassau's waterfront. And it's
only 50 yards from the
sophistication that is Nassau's
Bay Street.


NASSAU HARBOUR through the creative lenses of
Bahamas Tourist News Bureau photographer Roland Rose,
is a montage of Impressions. The harbour is bisected by the
graceful curve of the Paradise Island Bridge, centre, from
which a tourist trains his camera. Clockwise, from upper
left; a fisherman sculls his tiny dinghy out to his moored
boat; Nassau Yacht Haven and the marinas beyond present
a mass of power and sailboats; fishermen peddle their
catches to passersby along the dock at Potters Cay; a
charter fishing boat heads out for a day of deep sea fishing;
sleek cruise ships are seen through the rigging of a work
sloop; a ketch lies peacefully at anchor within sight of
Nassau's lighthouse; seagulls soar and squawk for an evening
meal; and the roar of an outgoing seaplane churns up the
harbour waters.

Baby born with four arms & legs,is now normal


MIAMI, FLORIDA (AP)-
Baby Joe was born with four
arms and four legs, a condition
so rare that just 23 cases have
been documented since 1680..
But today, at 10 months of
age, Joe, with his fluffy blond
hair and bright brown eyes, is
nearly normal, doctors said.
The baby, dubbed with the
name Joe to give him
anonymity, was a little more
than 21 hours old when
doctors at Miami's Jackson
Memorial Hospital started
operating to normalize the tiny


patient.
Meanwhile, Joe's parents
waited at a hospital several
miles away.
The two, Alias Joan and
Mike, were just 21. But they
had planned for the baby since
marrying two years before.
"I always wanted a baby
from the time we got married,"
Joan said. "I lost the first
pregnancy In May 1971."
Joan's grandmother had
twins who did not live. Mike's
uncle and aunt produced three
sets of twins.
The young couple did not


know that this family trait
might cause what happened to
Joe, who was born with a
condition called Dipygus, a
quirk of twinning doctors say
rarely happens.
The only test to detect
Dipygus is X-raying the
mother, which carries risks and
is used only when possible
birth difficulties make it
unavoidable.
Shortly after he was born,
Joe was taken by sheriff's
department helicopter to
Jackson. A trio of doctors was
already standing by.
Dr. Marc Rowe, chief of the
University of Miami school of
medicine's division of pediatric
surgery and one of the few
doctors in the world with
experience in operating for
Dipygus, headed the team.
Several hours later, Joe was
placed in an incubator. Jackson
staff members took pictures of
the tiny baby with the stitched
inclo4ons and tubes and wires
going from his body to various
life-.gpporting machines.
"I wore those pictures out,
carrying them with me," Joan
said,
"At first I thought it
happened perhaps because of
thins I had done that were not
right Joan said. "I don't
believe that now, although I
don't think it's unusual to feel
guilty."
But her husband, an
ordained lay minister, said he
"felt. the lord had a nurDose in
It and I let it go in his hanub.
One of my relatives told me
the day after it happened, 'The
Lord must really love you to
put. something like this upon
you*' I can see that."
When Joe was aboui two
wedgs old, Joan was able to

* NOTTINGHAM, ENGLAND
(AP)-New Zealand fast bowler
Bruce Taylor tabbed three
quick wickets Thursday and
England were string on 142
for four by the tea interval on
the first day of the First Test
Match.
England's openers Goff
Boycott and Dennis Amiss
steered through the opening
session successfully but an
hour after lunch Taylor had
both England's openers out
and the scalp of Tony Lewis as
well.
Lewis, captain of the
England team which toured
India and Pakistan last winter,
never looked happy and was
caught behind the wicket for
two.
Just before tea, Dayle
Hadlee struck another blow
for the tourists by getting
Keith Fletcher LBW with a ball
that kept low.Fletcher, on 17,
had just begun to look
comfortable.
Both openers had stepped
up the pace after the interval.
Boycott drove Richard
Hadlee through the covers
twice for boundaries and Amiss
also hit out aggressively.
But the picture changed
rapidly an hour after lunch
when the tourists snapped up
three wickets for 16 rum.
Amiss was the first to go,
caught by Wadsworth off
Bruce Taylor for 42.
Then Boycott completely
underestimated a short ball
from Taylor and was out LBW
for 51.
Tony Lewis was the third to
go. He never looked happy and
was caught at the wicket off
Taylor for two.
