PM sees Abach issue as'grounds


f divorcece' between FNM & UBP

By NICKI KELLY
THE BAHAMIAN PROPONENTS OF ABACO secession are
using the issue as a "political maneuver" to resurrect the United
Bahamian Party "and I think that Is what will happen," Prime
Minister Lynden Pindling claimed yetrday.


'72 acnuts
By MIKE LOTIIAN,
MNM SENATE LEADER
Oglle Tusquest this morning
eiL-eaged Goveriuent for the
mead time a two months to
produce the audited Treaury
Aecountafor 1972
During the Senate Budget
Debate on April 9, Sen.
Turnquest charged that the
accounts had been completed
and showed that actual
Government revenue last year
was only $93 million, and not
.the $104.5 million claimed in
the draft estimates of revenue
and expenditure.
If Sen. Turnquest's April 9
assertion was correct,
Government revenue in 1972
fell $17.5 million short of the
original $110 million estimate.
The 1973 draft estimates gave
a revised figure of $104.5
million an admitted revenue
-short fall of $5.5 million.
In April the Govex
Senate Leader, Ext.
Minister P" rley,
replied:.
"I c Itne Leader

inl i. that actual
revoe last year was $93
mlllIM is not the case, bu t i tis
a faotht actual revenue last
year % an estimated $104
Adllion; it may be a few dollars
out here and there, but
certainly not to the extent of
being $93 million."
.T64ay Sen. Turnquest toi
t upper house that "this s
now June, and the public has
yet to see the audited Treasury
Acownts for last year.
SIX MONTHS
1 "Si.ppnths have w passed
A sice year ende4 I trust.
IC tis whole of this year will not
hav gone by before they are
produced. I challenge the
Government to produce
immediately the Treasury
Accounts for last year."
Sen. Adderley replied that
"it is a matter of compiling the
treasury records and turning
them over to the auditor, over
whom the Government
constitutionally has no control
whatever."
Sen. Tumquest's challenge
came during debate on a
resolution seeking legislative
authority for Finance Minister
Arthur D. Hanna to borrow
$30 million for the re-financing
of a number of short term
lqans totalling $26.6 million,
and for the financing of $3.4
million worth of capital works
during 1973.
The resolution was adopted.
Also adopted was a
resolution authorsing the
Treasurer to exchange certain
Government land for land on
Mackey Street owned by the
St. George's Athletic Club. The
land is to be uaed to provide a
public park in the Culmerville
constituency.
The Senate this morning also
biased minor amendments to
the Public Service Act, the
Public Holidays Act, the
Derelict Motor Vehicles
Disposal Act, the Private Roads
and Subdivisions (Out Islands)
Act, and the Private Roads and
Subdiviasions Act.

tt. Pdling said he could
not comment on the attitude
the government would take to
Colonel: Mitchell's proposed
visit "Well deal with the
question when it arises," he
said,.
BARGAINING?
The Prime Minister was also
questioned as to whether the
presence of U.4. military
-iastellatlWonieremiight be used
as a 40gbahting point for
Americaur protection of the
Bahamas in the event of civil
disturbance.
Talks between the Bahamas,
United States and Great Britain
have already begun with regard
to the future of these
installations.
Neither the U.S. nor Great
Britain had ever mentioned
Abaco "because they consider
it a part of the Bahamas. The
question never arose nor is it
expected to arise," Mr.
Pindling said.
The discussions between the
three governments thus far
conceded "the terms and
conditions under which both
the U.S. and U.K. governments
might continue to operate the
facilities they presently have
on terms acceptable to the
Bahamas having regard to the
internal and external security
of the Bahamas and the
economic potential of the
Bahamas," the Prime Minister
said.
He told The Tribune that
this government had not put
forth any request for any
guarantees.
"We are just asking them to
state their full case ... what
they consider is the total
Bahamian situation and what
role we play.
It was now emerging that
the Bahamas was playing "a
more important role than we
had anticipated," he remarked
significantly.
"We haven't reached the
final stage of the talks, but
having gone so far there is no
reason to suggest that they will
not be successfully
concluded."

CURILES" SS PM
"WE WILL not be requiring
any more than our own police
force to protect Prince Charles
when he comes here for the
independence celebrations,"
Prime Minister Lynden
Pindling said yesterday.
He told a press conference
that the local constabulary
could handle the job, "but if
we deem it necessary to have
anything else I ain't goin' to
tell you," ha added.
Questions have been raised
in the British press as to
whether the Prime Minister
could euarntee the safety of
the British heir to the throne in
view of the rumblings over the
Issue of Abaco.

Crow:


In a wide-ranging interview
with The Tribune, Mr. Pindling
said Wednesdy's split in the
Opposition ranks on the
question mfIt independence
referenduat Abaco made it
seem as if til House was being
called on to sit as a court in the
"divorce" of the UBP and
FNM.
"If Abaco is grounds for
divorce so be it," he declared.
Mr. Pindling contended that
the UBP ide of tIn Opposition

the Abaco ,ita. a4 in
opportunity fo emerge as the,
UBP, and hp thought that this
was what would happen.
"We feel that the
proponents of secession have
mis-stated their, case and
over-exaggerated the position,
in Abaco, and that the.
non-Bahamians who are
proposing secession are
thinking of their personal
economic interests."
Further identifying this
"personal economic interest,"
Mr. Pindling said he meant that
there were outside persons
"who see Abaco developing as
some might have seen Freeport
developing in the '60s."
He pointed out that in the
House of Commons debate on
the Independence Bill it was
stated that the population of
Abaco had a growth potential
of 60-65,000 people.'
Asked to comment on
British press coverage of the
Abaco dispute, the Prime
Minister said the U.K. press
had carried what the
proponents of Abaco secession
had issued to them.
FAIR COVERAGE
"I thought they gave us fair
coverage in our presO
conference, butthe proponents
of secession have been going to
the press more often than we
have."
Mr. Pindling was pressed to
elaborate on the reply received
from the State Department
about Americans Edward
Marger and Mitchell WerBelL
He told reporters in London
that "it was of a ratherL
sensitive nature and it was
probably best not to say
anything1 further about it at
present.
In Nassau yesterday he said
that"it is important to have it
close to our chest as it relates
directly to the security of the
Bahamas."
The Prime Minister did not,
however, anticipate any
trouble at Abaco either before
or after independence, and was
non-committal about the
declaration by Lt. ,Col Colin
MitcheB's intention, to fly to
Abaco to act as the islanders'
security advisor.
Colonel Mitchell best
known as "Mad Mitch" for his
war exploits announced in
London this week that he was
going with an open mind. "For
security reasons I am not
committed to anything. But I
will nof say when I am
leaving."

WIDOW 1351

ATTACKED BY

CUTLASS, 'IN

BAD SHAPE'
A 35-YEAR-OLD WIDOW,
who lives about 100 yards
from the home of Prime
Minister Pindling on Regency
Park, was brutally attacked
in her bedroom by a
"cutlass-wielding" male at 4
o'dock this morning.
Mrs. Paula Styles, who
received severe cuts about the
face, was rushed to the
operating theatre, after being
driven to the Princess Margaret
Hospital by a neighbour.
Mr. Fred Higgs,
brother-in-law of Mrs. Styles,
told The Tribune that he was
awakened around 4 a.m. today
by the telephone. Mrs. Styles'
13-year-old daughter was at the
other end shouting: "Hurry,
hurry come quickly someone
has just cut Mummy with a
Cutlass."fI
He said that Mrs. Styles had
an eight-inch long gash over her
eye, which continued to the
back of her head. "She's in
pretty bad shape and has had
to undergo an operation," he
said. There i some question as
to whether doctors can save
her eye, Mr. Higgs said.
WHILE ASLEEP
He said that stealing did not
seem to be the motive as there
was money lying around the
bedroom. He believes that she
was attacked while she slept.
He said the second blow cut
off part of her finger.
Mr. Higgs said her
15-year-old son, who was
awakened by the noise, "nearly
got his head cut off by the man
who wielded a cutlass." The
boy quickly shut the door, and
the cutlass landed in the door,
leaving a gash mark.
Mrs. Styles was widowed
about six months ago.
She is described as a "good
looking", slender woman of
about 5' 4". She was an
athletic type who played
tennis.
POLICE INVESTIGATING
TWO ASSAULT CASES
POLICE are investigating
two cases of assault, one of
which took place last night
aboard the m.v. Sunward and
the other on Deveaux Street
when a police officer was
attacked while on duty.
An unidentified Haitian
national is said to be assisting
police officers in their
investigation


She said there was a risk of
fragmentation in the Caribbean
if Abaco were allowed to
secede.
"1 do not believe the threats
which have been made from
Abaco of physical resistance
will be carried out, but quite
clearly if any violence occurs it
will be the duty of Her
Majesty's government to
support the Bahamas
Government," said Lord
Brockway.
Lord Thurlow, former
governor of the Bahamas,
wished the Bahamas "good
fortune" on attaining
ildtoMdence
Lr .' Thurlow, governor.
from 1968 to 1971, said
external capital investment in
the Bahamas had ben
unhealthy high, but now the
scales had tipped the other way
and it was now within te
capacity of an independent
Bahamas to create condition
of liellffroseertty.
' Baroness Tweedsmulr of
Belhelvie moved the seumod
reading of the Bill and outlined
its contents.
The Bill, which has already
passed the House of CoMdmons,
will go into committee on
Tuesday. Lord Bellhaven is
expected at that time to move
the Abaco amendment to
remain a Crown Colony.
After covering the points of
citizenship during yesterday's
debate, Lady Tweedsmuir said:
"There is no danger of this Bill
creating a large number of
United Kingdom passport
holders with a right to come
here at some time in the
future, nor will the Bill make
anyone stateless."
On lighthouses she said:
"Clause S concerns the
transfer to the Bahamas
government, on independence,
of the Imperial Lighthouse
Service lights in the Bahamas.
There are at present nine lights
operated by the Department of
Trade and Industry which will
be transferred on independence
to the Bahamas government,
who will .then assume
responsibility for their
operation and administration.
It was agreed that the
Bahamas government should
control these lighthouses after
independence, because the
Bahamas' heavy reliance on the
trouist industry for their
prosperity makes it essential to
them that these navigational
aids should be maintained
around their coast as a
protection against shipwrecks
and consequelitial pollution of
their beaches.
Although the Bahamas
government has. agreed to
accept full responsibility for
operating the lighthouse
service, we realise that it will
need some financial help. The
General Lighthouse Fund,
which is at present responsible
for the cost of maintaining this
service, is financed by dues
paid by ships. This fund will
meet certain terminal expenses
and will also accept
responsibility for meeting the
cost of some automation work
which had previously been
saeed. The fund will also
continue to meet the cost of
pensions of existing
pensioners.'
NO SEPARATION
On Abaco she said that
Britain could not accede to a
request for separate Crown
Colony status. '"These islands,
some of whose inhabitants
wish to assume a separate
identity, have always been an
integral part of the Bahamas
and for more than 200 years
have been administeed as


Upper House of the
Legislature, then known as the
Legislative Council, in January
1960, and has remained a
member ever since.
Mr. Knowles has the
distinction of having been in
the Upper House longer than
any other member. After the
death of Sir George Roberts,
he was elected President of the
Senate on July 9, 1964. He
was re-elected President In
February 1967 and April 1968
and remained President until
1972. Mr. Knowles has been
the only President of the
Senate to have served as
President while there was a
UBP and PLP government.
In June 1963 he was
awarded the C.B.E. by the
Queen in recognition of his
distinguished public service.
LEGAL ADVISER
Mr. Knowles' political career
also included attendance at the
first Constitutional Conference
in London in May 1963 as legal
adviser to the Legislative
Council, and the second
Constitutional Conference in
September 1968 as a delegate
of the Senate.
On January 1, 1969 he
beca A &aparner in the firm of
Higs. & Johnson which is the
oldest and'one of the leading
R of, tourneys in W i0e
imakAd, a he is M a
parts in that firm.
One of the most colourful
cases in which Senator
Knowles appeared was the
Royal Commission of Inquiry
into the affairs of the Bahamas
Police Force in 1963, when he
acted for the then
Commissioner of Police, Col.
Colchester-Wemyss, the result
of which was very favourable
to the Commissioner.
He also appeared in the
recent case in the Courts
concerning the re-organization
of the world's largest mutual
fund, United States
International Fund, Real
Estate, which involved many
lawyers from the Unitd
Kingdom and the United
States. Probably such a large
array of legal talent has never
before appeared at one time in
the Bahamas.
Senator Knowles was
Chairman of the Nassau Youth
for Christ for 20 years; he was
a Lay Preacher in the
Methodist Church for many
years, and now takes an
active part in the ministry of
Calvary Bible Church, of which
he and his wife are members.


such.
"The general election in
September 1972, showed that
there was a substantial
majority of the population of
the Bahamas as a whole in
favour dt independence ...
'Ab a c o has two
constituencies, one represented
by a P.L.P. member and one by
an opposition F.N.M. member.
Neither of the main political
parties in the Bahamas has ever
Expressed any support or any
encouragement for a separate
status for the Abaco islands.
Both have agreed on ultimate
dependent status for the
Bahamas. It is for these
reasons, my Lords, that we
Sieve that the future lies in a
cited Commonwealth of the
amas."
She said the prosperity of
the islands depended largely on
the expansion and
development of tourism.
Comparative wealth with some
-lBacsx had meant that the
lahamas had not received as
much financial aid as some
countries,
"With a big gross national
product the Bahamas would
not come within our normal
criteria for a, programme of
development aid and technical
assistance. Nevertheless, it may
become necessary in the
months ahead to re-examine
the territory's needs, especially
after taking into account the
future of the defence
installations....
'"This country has had a long
association with the Bahamas
stretching back more than 300
years and the passage of this
bill ends our constitutional
responsibility by July 10 this
year if Parliament agrees this
measure. In commending the
Bill, I wish the people of the
Bahamas every good fortune in
the years which lie ahead."
Lord Shepherd said that
difficulties could have arisen in
talks between Britain and the
Bahamas but the fact that
there were very few problems
was to the credit of Mr.
Lynden Pindling and also to
the former governor, Lord
Thurlow.
"If I had any criticism of
Mr. Pindling, it is that he took
so long in reaching a decision
on independence."
FRAGMENTATION
On Abaco he said that one
important point was that
fragmentation would occur if
there was secession.
"Fragmentation could be a
tremendous disaster to the
whole of the Caribbean and the
West Indies, with all their
problems of agriculture and
life. They need to get closer
together and not to fragment,
they need particularly some
better shipping lines in order to
move their own goods and
manufactures easily around ...
think in the end there will be
no difficulty and that the
people of Abaco will settle in
with the rest of their friends in
the Commonwealth."
Lord Thurlow said: "The
note to strike today is one of
congratulations and a wish of
good fortune for the future.
That is the only possible
message from this House. It is
surely fitting that any minor
point of controversy should be
now put behind us and all the
emphasis should be placed on
congratulations on the
achievement of an entirely
natural process of
constitutional advance. The
difference between the
political parties, has not been
o thre. substance of
lndsendemse but purely on
the tlasnments of timing."


Two years ago he became
the Chairman of the Fund
Raising Committee of the
Peris Rodgers Home for the
Aged, a charitable drive whose
aim is to provide a decent
home for the many elderly
Bahamians who are living in
very sub-standard conditions.
In 1939, while he was living
and practising in Liverpool,
England, he married the former
Miss Harriet Hansen Hughes,
and a year later their eldest son
Dr. K. W. Knowles was born.
In 1956, their younger son,
Anthony, was born. Dr.
Knowles practises as an
Ophthalmologist in Nasau,
and Anthony attends
Trinity-Pawling School in New
York State.
His only brother Kenneth, a
well-known Civil Servant, died
recently, and he has one sister,

SENATORS this morning
paid high tribute to former
Senate President Leonard
Knowles, whose appointment
to succeed Sir Gordon Bryce as
Chief Justice of the Bahamas
was confirmed by Prime
Minister Lynden Pindling late
Thursday.
Senate President Gerald
Cash opened today's session by
noting the announcement.
"Those of us who have
known Senator Knowles over
the years know this is indeed a
fitting tribute, and a crowning
achievement. He has over the
years filled many positions of
note, including magistrate,
solicitor general and attorney
general."
Opposition Leader in the
Senate Orville Turquest said
'Sen. Knowles happens to be a
person who is extremely well
qualified for the high post to
which he has been named. Our
judicial system will be in fine
hands," he said.
Government Leader Paul
Adderley. External Affairs
Minister, declared that "he is
more qualified for this office
than anyone else who has ever

sat on the bench."
He noted that also worthy
of commendation was Sen.
Knowles' willingness to accept
the poet rather than continue

Maillis, Henry Bostwick,
Wilbert Moss, Milo Butler Jr,
Mizpah Tertullien, Lockinvar
Lockhart, Shadrack Morris and
E. J. Rolle.
Replying, Sea. Knowles said
"I feel so unworthy of the kind
remarks made here this
morning. In fact, I feel so
unworthy of the office.
"I have been filing in the
last few weeks that I accepted
this high office too lightly. I
have been coming more and
more aware of the
responsibilities of the office
and the high traditions of the
past."
However, "I am
considerably bouyed up and
encouraged by the kind words
I have heard this mMmug. I
will do my best to uphold the
office's noble tradition."


"Fully half of the Supreme
Court Bench will therefore be
filled by Bahamians, another
significant achievement," he
said.
Mr. Knowles was born on
the March 15, 1916 at Nassau,
his father being the late Samuel
J. Knowles and his mother the
late Bessie Carmen Knowles,

the Certificate of Honour.
He was called to the Bar in
London in January 1939.
The Benchers of Gray's Inn
awarded him the Lord Justice
Holker Scholarship.
Mr. Knowles served as a
pupil in Commonr Law and

Liverpool Onder the late Judge
Frazer Haftison and Bertram B.
Benas respectively, and was
elected to the Northern Circuit
in 1939 and practised at the
Bar in Liverpool until Auguest

Howard Hunt will testify today at a rand jury hearing probing a break-in
at the office of Daniel E g's psyhiatrit. The spokesman says Hunt
will be asae to clafy some statements made earlier.
QUESTIONS COURT'S AUTHORITY
WASHINGTON (AP) Special prosecutor Archibald Cox today will try
to persuade federal Judge John Sirca to curb news coverage of the Senate
Watergate hearings. Cox wants Srics to order the committee to question
witnesses facing possible charges In closed session or without live
redio.devison coverage.
Paet attempts to convince committee chairman Sam Ervin to suspend
the Semate committee hearings have proved unsuccessful.
Ervin and his chief counsel, Samuel Dash,question whether the court
has the constitutional authority to tell a Congressional committee how to
conduct its hearings.
SEEKS BROADENING OF COMMITTEE'S AUTHORITY
WASHINGTON (AP)- It's reported that Democratic Senator Sam
Ervin will ask the Senate to broaden the Watergate committee's authority
to allow Investigation of Nixon administration actions taken in the name of
national security. The report in today's editions of "The Washington Post"
quotes sources close to the committee. However, an Ervin aide has denied
the story.
One committee member, Republican counsel Fred Thompson, thinks
the committee already has enough power to cover an extended

authority is unnecessary.

NEW YORK (AP)- The

White House documents

parts of it were "clearly

Huston, a staff assistant to the
President, including one that
summered the plan by the
Interagency Committee on

The summary showed the
plan contained provisions for

The transfer of power wpuld

said, will immediately lead to a
drastic reshuffle of the national

and head of the armed forces.
Carrero Blanco's
appointment was seen s' the
first sign by Franco of retiring.
SENIOR MAN
Carrero, Franco's right arm
for many years and the senior
Cabinet member had been
gradually taking day by day
matters over in the past four
years.
He will now preside at
Cabinet sessions, replacing
Franco.
Franco decreed last summer
that the Vice President of the
government should take over ar

He has been a member of
the Spanish Cabinet for the
past 32 years and will be
Spain's first Premier since the
defeat of the Republican
Governmdet by Franco in the
Civil War (1936-39).
At the start of the Civil War
Carrero Blanco was in Madrid
and he sought shelter at the
embassies of Mexico and
France. He later joined
Franco's forces.
In 1941 Franco named him
Undersecretary for the
Presidency. Ten years later this
job was given a ministerial
rank. Cartero held the post

As President of the
government he will be

important role in Spain.
Carrero is seen as Franco's
most loyal collaborator and
many refer to him as "more
Franco than Franco."
Carrero is married to

five children.

Charles "Pete" Conrad Jr, said.
The wing snapped into place
and the three solar power
panels in it unfolded partially.
Mission Control said two of the
three panels were 40 percent
deployed officials said this was
enough to charge eight unused
batteries aboard 'Skylab,
providing a significant boost in

Astronauts Conrad and Dr.
Joseph P. Kerwin reported the
successful repair job after being
out of radio contact with
Mission Control for more than
an hour.
"We've got the wing out and

spaceship orbited back into

added that the solar panels

seemed to have stopped before

Mission Control said

Conrad said he and Kerwin
freed the wing by cutting

used a pair of bolt cutters
attached to a long pole.
The repair effort began
when Conrad, in a white space

rope-like tether which provided
him with air, opened a hatch
and drifted into space. The

was mildly disoriented when he

The price of Independence


By ETIENNE DUPUCH
A RECENT news despatch out of London may have
significance for banana and sugar producing British
Commonwealth islands in this hemisphere.
It announced that "what is believed to be the first British trade
mission to visit the French West Indies and Haiti is being
sponsored by the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry
and the West India Committee, a government export promotion
body .
"The mission left Friday," the report continued, "and will visit
Guadeloupe, Martinique and Haiti, returning to London on May
16.
"With Britain now a member of the European Common
Market, the London Chamber believes the time is right to increase
trade with Guadeloupe and Martinique, both overseas
departments of Metropolitan France.
"Between them the two islands import just over $248 million
worth of goods a year and up to now Britain's share has not
exceeded one per cent.
"The main aim of the mission will be to find out how British
firms can take advantage of progressive tariff reductions (20
percent a year from April Ist this year until 1977) on imports
from Britain."

Up. to the present time Britain has been concerned with
stimulating trade for Caribbean products in Britain but, if she
now wants to sell her goods to these French islands, she will have
to open her door to exports from these islands. They are banana
and sugar producing areas.
As I have told you in this column before, the economy of sugar
,and banana producing British Caribbean islands has survived only
because they have been heavily subsidized by the British
taxpayer, whose money provides a ship that goes through the
islands once a week picking up these products for the English
market where they are protected under the old Empire
Preferential Tariff Agreement.
If British goods.are to receive a 20 percent preferential tariff in
French territory it means that Britain must extend a similar
advantage to goods imported into Britain from French territories
.... which must mean the end of the old 50 percent preferential
tariff arrangements within the old British Empire.

PM puts the case against Abaco


THE MAJORITY OF ABACONIANS reject Mr. Erringtlo
Watkins' claim for epration, a Government pamplet issued at a
press conference held by Prime Minister LO.Pindling in Loadon
on May 23 said.


"The people of Abaco do
not wish to dismember their
country but are trying instead
to build their small country as
all other peoples have done
before them," the statement
continued.
These statements were
included in a pamphlet entitled
"Some Facts About Abaco ...
Commonwealth of the Bahama
Islands."
Prepared by Bahamas
Information Services it was
distributed to reporters at Mr.
Pindling's press conference at
which he said that Abaco
"showed no outward sign of
any revolt."


i


This British aid was needed because the Caribbean islands
could not compete with the more productive farming estates in
Central and South America.
Will they be able to stand pressures from Haiti, Guadeloupe
and Martinique where labour is dirt cheap?
I don't know. But I do know that earlier this year Martinique
had a surplus in her banana crop because France did not absorb as
much as had been expected. She dumped the surplus on the
world market. This immediately upset the market for the British
Caribbean producers.
At a conference recently held in Miami to consider future
U.S.-Caribbean relations, it was agreed that there was no future
for the banana and sugar industries in the islands of the
Caribbean. The conference was seeking desperately to find an
alternative industry.
But what?
This is a question for which there seems to be no answer.

Until recent times nations negotiated treaties in an effort to
equalize "the balance of power" in relation to their neighbours.
They were all afraid of wars.
Now the nations are trying to form trade alliances instead.
With Britain's entry into the European Common Market this
will be one of the largest trading groups in the world.
Britain tried for years to get into this group but the late
General de Gaulle blocked the entry because of Britain's
Commonwealth obligations.
With de Gaulle permanently out of the picture Britain finally
got in ... and this must mean the end of Commonwealth
advantages.
This is a terrible thing for many Commonwealth countries that
depended on British preferential trade advantages to market their
products.
Big countries like Australia and New Zealanrd have turned
desperately to other areas for markets.
At a press conference in Hong Kong three years ago a publisher
from Australia stated that his country was now looking away
from Britain to Japan for markets.
This is an ironic change in attitude. Because of fear of Oriental
intrusion especially Japan Australia had an immigration
policy that excluded all dark races.
In two wars Germany tried to conquer the world to establish a
master race .... now they are making a bid for the Japanese tourist
trade.
As long as Britain had an Empire and could take care of her
territories Australia could shut out the dark races. Now she has to
lay out the welcome mat for the Japanese if Australians are to
survive.
To whom 'ill the Caribbean islands turn? .... Uncle Sam?
The late Lord Beaverbrook carried on a lifelong crusade for a
solid trade block within the Empire. Had this come off it would
have been the greatest power in recorded history.
a, But it wasn't to be for many reasons.
. One of the principal reasons was the pressure brought on
' Britain by the U.S. to "free" the Empire. This pressure reached
m its peak in the Suez crisis. This was the last straw that broke the
R camel's back.
The other big reason is that every little corner of the Empire
sot the idea that they wanted Independence from their English
masters.
England reached the point of disgust where she said .... if that's
f what you want you can have it.
Now they have independence ... and many of them will
learn for the first time what it really meant to be in the British
fi family.
And it is clear that Uncle Sam is now concerned because he

Bell, M.P. House of Commons,
who has espoused the Abaco
separatist movement, from Mr.
Leonard M. Thompson, on
behalf of the Greater Abaco
Council. In it Mr. Thompson
said that he "would not submit
the people of Abaco to the
consequences of violence but
prefer that they seek their
destiny as part of an
independent Bahamas."
There is also a letter from
Mr. Sherlin C. Bootle, Deputy
Speaker of the House of
Assembly, and representative
for Cooper's Town, to the
Foreign and Commonwealth
Office in London.
Included among the
photographs was one of the
40-member delegation, headed
by Mr. Gordon Hudson and
Mr. Bootle, who met with the
Governor, Lord Thurlow on
July 8, 1971 to protest a
petition presented to the
Governor by residents of Great
Abaco who threatened
secession in the event of
"premature independence";
the group of 20 Abaconians
who presented the petition on
July 7, 1971 requesting
secession and photographs of
Mr. Bootle, Mr. Thompson, Mr.
Watkins and Mr. Hudson with
short biographies.
Following is the complete
text of "Some Facts about
Abaco":
ABACO is made up of two
electoral districts of The
Commonwealth of the
Bahamas and, if it were a
separate entity, could be
described as a group of
numerous islands, cays and
rocks with a population of
6,501 scattered over about 16
islands and containing
altogether 649 square miles.


THE ABACO GROUP
HAS TWO
REPRESENTATIVES
The two electoral districts
are as follows:
(1) Cooper's Town being the
northern half has 1241
registered voters and is
represented by Mr. Sherlin C.
Bootle (P.L.P. Government).
Mr. Bootle is 63 years of age.
He was first elected over 5
years ago on the 10th April,
1968 and was re-elected on the
19th September, 1972. He was
unanimously elected Deputy
Speaker of the House of
Assembly in October 1972 and
received praises from all
sections of The Bahamas House
of Assembly by Government
and Opposition members alike.
Mr. Bootle was born in and still
lives at Abaco.
(2) Marsh Harbour being the
southern half has 1278
registered voters and is
represented by Mr. Errington
Watkins (for less than 8


insoluble problem on his front door step.

FOOTNOTE TO HISTORY: In one of my recent articles I told
you I was surprised to receive a letter from the Agricultural
Department in Jamaica addressed to Sir Etienne Dupuch, Coral
Gables, Florida.
Since then a friend in Nassau decided to try to reach me with
the same scanty address. The letter came to my hotel without
delay.
This seems amazing to me because twice recently I have had
letters returned to me because I didn't have the house number on
them.
They were addressed to Walter Jackson in Westmount, Ontario,
Canada. I gave the name of the shreet a short street but not
the house number.
This family whom I have known for over 60 years, has been
living at this address for nearly a hundred years and yet the
letters were sent back to me because I have lost the house
number.
I am sometimes stunned by the number of people who are
aware of my presence in this city after a stay of only eight
months.

HISTORICAL CONNECTIONS
The Abaco group for the last
481 years have always been an
integral part of the Bahamas
archipelago and at no time in
the history of The Bahamas has
the Abaco group been
considered separately from the
rest of The Bahamas. The
people of The Bahamas have
been one family that has
known no boundary
distinguished by island or
otherwise.
Hope Town, Abaco was first
settled in 1784 by a group of
real Loyalists fleeing the
American war of
Independence. They came to
Abaco from New York by way
of St. Augustine, Florida. Not
long after they reached Hope
Town dissension broke out
among them Brig-General
Alexander MacArthur, military
commander of East Florida,
sent troops to restore order.
The chief dissenters thereupon
left Hope Town and
established the rival township
of Marsh Harbour. After the
American Civil War.
"wrecking' became an
industry in Abaco. Many boats
were deliberately lured off
course and wrecked for their
cargoes. Abaco's population
was also increased thereby.
For the past 244 years The
Bahamas, through its
constitutionally elected
Assembly has undergone
constant and peaceful
evolution free from any
violence or other tragedy.
Abaco has been continuously
represented in the Assembly


a Bahamian with a
distinguished World War II
record, a successful
businessman, and one who had
formerly represented Abaco
for nineteen years. His brother,
Mr. Roscoe Thompson was
soundly beaten by Mr. Sherlin
Bootle in the 1968 General
Elections and he himself was
beaten by Mr. Bootle in 1972
General Elections.
In February 1972, Mr.
Ronald Bell arrived in The
Bahamas having been engaged
as a lawyer to put the case of
the Greater Abaco Council.
On the 19th March, 1973,
the leaders of the Greater
Abaco Council including
Messrs. Leonard Thompson,
Chester Thompson, Robert L.
Stratton and Ritchie Albury
informed the Government that
they had given up their
anti-Independence fight, that
they wanted to help develop
Abaco as a prosperous
community and that they were
opposed to violence. They later


published this fact far and wide
throughout the Bahamas.
THE COUNCIL FOR
FREE ABACO
It was learned in April, 1973
in press reports from London,
that Mr. Watkins claimed that
the Council for Free Abaco
was formed in December, 1972
by a dissident group of the
now defunct Greater Abaco
Council. This Council is
supported by one Edwin
Marger, an American lawyer
and one Mr. Mitchell WerBell,
an American arms dealer. It
appears that interests in the
United States and the United
Kingdom may be assisting the
Council. An account is said to
have been opened at a London
bank to receive financial
contributions to the Council.
The people of The Bahamas
and particularly the people of
Abaco are shocked by these
new developments and
particularly by the pecuniary
interest outside elements have
developed in Abaco with the
avowed intent of disrupting the
national unity of the Bahamian
people and territorial integrity
of their land. So shocked were
the leaders of the original
Greater Abaco Council that
Mr. Leonard Thompson wrote
the following letter to Mr.
Ronald Bell on the 28th April,
1973.
April 28th., 1973

Mr. Ronald Bell, M.P.
House of Commons
London
England

Dear Mr. Bell,
I apologize for not writing to
you earlier to thank you for
your many courtesies.
As you know we were very
disappointed when we left
London. All except two
members of our group
concluded that our case was
hopeless. It was evident that
any sympathy for our case was
scattered and ineffectual.
Events of the past few weeks
have increased our


disenchantment. We therefore
issued a press statement, a
copy of which is enclosed, as
we wished to disassociate
ourselves from the Council for
a Free Abaco who are openly
advocating violence. All desire
for military glory was fulfilled
for me years ago in the sky
over Germany and, in the case
of my brother, on the cruel
seas of the North Atlantic.
The various meetings we had
in London convinced me that
control by a Britain,
preoccupied by entry into the
Common Market and set on a
course of ridding herself of the
remaining vestiges of her
Empire, is not in the best
interests of Abaco.
Moreover, I would not
submit the people of Abaco to
the consequences of violence
but prefer that they seek their
destiny as part of an
independent Bahamas.
When next in London I trust
that I can meet with you.
Kindest regards,
Leonard M. Thompson
for
Greater Abaco Council


elected on the Free National
Movement ticket in September
1972. Shortly after being
elected, Mr. Watkins ran into
trouble with his party because
he refused to toe the party line
and has been acting on his own
ever since to secure his own
personal position. He is
presently in a major conflict
with his party.
Another petition has
recently been circulated. It is
understood that signatures
have been sought on this
petition so as to influence, in
some way. members of the
British Parliament. No scrutiny
of the signatures on this
petition has been made but,
from local information, the
same deception has been
practised. The petition invites
signatures of residents of,
persons born within or
descendents of persons born
within the cor stituencies of
Marsh Harbour and Cooper's
Town, Abaco.
Every Bahamian knows that
many non-Bahamians reside in
Abaco; that many persons born
in Abaco no longer live in
Abaco and that many of the
descendants of persons born in
Abaco live throughout The
Bahamas and the State\ of
Florida in the United States.
One thing is certain: the
attempt to separate Abaco
from the Bahamas is still the
biggest attempt at a land grab
ever tried in the Bahamas.
THE GREATER
ABACO COUNCIL
The Greater Abaco Council,
or Greater Abaco Action
Committee as it was also once
known, was composed of
Abaconians opposed to
independence and was formed
sometime in 1970. Their
undoubted leader was Mr.
Leonard M. Thompson, O.B.E.,


play its useful role as a member
of the family of nations.
Please accept this as my
personal assurance that Mr.
Errington Watkins' behaviour is
not that of the people who he
claims to represent. Indeed, his
ideas have been shunned by the
majority of Abaconians and all
other Bahamians who believe
in their Country.
Yours sincerely.
Sherlin C. Bootle
Deputy Speaker
Representative for
Cooper's Town
RACES LIVE
HARMONIOUSLY
No one seems to know
precisely what is behind all
this. It is known that Mr.
Mitchell WerBell. (a U.S.
Citizen) as a seller of military
arms, was indicted by a Federal
Grand Jury in Florida, U.S.A.
in 1967 on charges linked with
invasions against the Republic
of Haiti but the charges were
dismissed. Mr. Marger (a U.S.
Citizen) claims that he is
simply an attorney
representing the Council of
Free Abaco working for a fee.
The Bahamas Government,
however, has rather more
sensitive information about
their conduct and their
motives.
Some British press reports
have suggested that the
American C.I.A. may be
behind it all. One thing is
certain: the attempt to
separate Abaco from the
Bahamas is still the biggest
attempt at a land grab ever
tried in The Bahamas.
Charges have been made
against the Government and
people of The Bahamas which
everyone in The Bahamas
knows are totally untrue. For
instance, it is not the intention
of the present Bahamas
Government to allow the Mafia
to take over The Bahamas. In
fact, it was the present
Government which in 1967
forced a Commission of
Inquiry which exposed
corruption amongst leading
figures in the former
Government, which put out
the Mafia-associated elements
and which has enforced tight
regulations to keep out such
elements.
There also seems to be some
racial implications in the
identification of the people of
Abaco as "Loyalists" by Mr.
Ronald Bell. Whatever the

THE DEUPTY
SPEAKER
The Deputy Speaker of the
House, Mr. Sherlin C. Bootle,
an Abaconian, has become so
alarmed that he has written
the Foreign and
Commonwealth Office in the
following terms:-
18 May, 1973
My dear Minister:
I deeply regret that at this
time I am unable to come to
London because of my health:
I have been ailing for some
time now. I nevertheless wish
to assure you that I am a
Representative for Abaco, and
have been so for the last five
years. I am trusted by my
people who have elected me on
two successive occasions as a
member of the Progressive
Liberal Party which now forms
the Government.
You should know that I
have the mandate to assist our
Country in achieving
Independence and I seek your
support as I know that you,
who have been so well known
for your adherence to
parliamentary democracy and
justice, will recognize that my
cause and my people's cause
are just ....
My sincere wish, and that of
my people, is for an
Independent Bahamas,
although a small nation, to


since 1784. In 1786, Abaco
had a population of 384 blacks
and 282 whites.
Independence had been
made the principal issue in the
1972 Elections. The
Progressive Liberal Party
favoured Independence now.
The Free National Movement
(on which ticket Mr. Watkins
was elected) claimed that
Independence, although
desirable, was premature.
THE PETITIONS
On 7th July, 1971 a
delegation of Abaconians led
by Mr. Sherwin Archer (then a
member of the Bahamas House
of Assembly representing the
Marsh Harbour Constituency)
and Mr. Leonard M.
Thompson, O.B.E., petitioned
the Queen through His
Excellency the Governor, by a
petition claimed to have been
signed by over 67% of the
Greater Abaco adult
population of over 2000
persons. The petition requested
the separation of a part of the
Abaco Group from the rest of
the Bahamas. A scrutiny of the

petition revealed that 321 of
the signatories were residents
of Nassau, 314 signatures were
written by persons other than
those named, an unreported
amount were signed by parents
on behalf of their children and
some were signed by persons
who were not even Bahamians.
On the 8th July, 1971, a
group of leading citizens of
Abaco led by Mr. Sherlin C.
Bootle, M.P. and Mr. Gordon
Hudson expressed strong
opposition to any partition of
their land. In their Press release
they described the Abaco
separatist movement with these
words: "We have heard of land
grabs before, but this petition
is the biggest attempt at a land
grab ever tried in The
Bahamas".
Mr. Errington Watkins came
into the picture after he was

PM ON ABACO
From Page 3
innuendoes, the fact is that
Abaco is made up of 6,501
persons of whom 52.5% are
black and 47.5% are white and,
like the rest of The Bahamas,
its inhabitants of both races
and all shades of colour live
harmoniously together as one
people.
A SPLENDID
ASSURANCE
Decent and law abiding
Abaconians would wish to
assure the world that the
people of Abaco are Bahamians
who love their country. The
majority of Abaconians reject


Mr. Watkins' claim for
separation. The people of
Abaco do not wish to
dismember their country but
are trying instead to build their
small country as all other
peoples have done before
them.
ALL Bahamians believe that
there is hope and refuse to
believe that the British
Parliament will frustrate an
agreement freely entered into
between the people of The
Bahamas and the Government
of the United Kingdom as Mr.
Watkins and his associates now
seek to do.


NO EVIDENCE OF FOUL PLAY IN GETTY'S DEATH
LOS ANGELES (AP)- Police said Wednesday there was no immediate
evidence of foul play in the death of George Franklin Getty II, eldest son
of billionaire J. Paul Getty.
A Getty oil company spokesman says private funeral services for George
Franklin Getty the second will be held Saturday in Malibu, California. A
coroner's autopsy has determined that it was an overdose of alcohol and
barbiturates that caused the death Wednesday of oil billionaire J. Paul
Getty's son.

Beigpet selling Flo rida


property for $8 million i

THE GRAND BAHAMA Development Company Ltd. has -.A^
ugned an agreement to sell its 10.500-acre land holding in Central
Florida for approximately $8 million in cash.


Announcement of the
agreement to sell was made by
George W. Kates, president, the
Grand Bahama Development
Company, a major land
development firm in Freeport
on Grand Bahama Island.
The buyer is Rolling
Meadows ch, Inc., a
Florida 'drPoration. The
closing, s(Sject, to normal legal
conditions .and payment of
cash by .the purchaser, is
scheduled in sixty days..
The property, located about
22 miles southeast of Disney
World, fronts on Lake
Hatchineha, part of the


Kissimmee River system near
Lake Wales.
The acreage was purchased
from the Florida Ridge and
Cattle Company in June, 1971,
for about $6 million. Its active
development was never
undertaken. Company officials
said this was due to higher
priorities on land developments
in the Bahamis, California and
the Canary Islands.
A company spokesman said
that the Development
Company will realize a profit
of about $1 million if the
transaction is completed.

ENVIRONMENT


PROTECTED

BY TOSRISN
GENEVA Tourism offers a
guarantee of environmental
protection adoe host countries
must meet the tourist's prior
demand for clean and agreeable
surroundings. This was one of the
main conclusions reached at the
International Seminar on Physical
Planning and Area Development
held in New Delhi last month by
the Indian Department of Tourism
and the International Union of
Official Trawl Organizations
(IUOTO).
Delegates Jsum 33 countries
stressed that, far from destroying
the environment, tourism provides
the greatest of incentives for
improving the quality of life,
stimulating local pride and morale,
and protecting natural assets against
the encroachments of hasty
industrial development and
unbanization.
It was recommended that
Industrialized countries and
International bodies should, in the
general interest of the human
community's economic and social
advancement, provide to the
developing countries the widest
technical and financial help, to
allow for the construction of new
tourist destinations to meet present
a- nd future demand.
In an increasingly
pollution-conscious age, tourism is
"an Industry without chimneys,"
n= IUOTO study says. The
_j.portance of tourism as a
bntributor to economic growth is
now so widely accepted that a
massive and growing torrent of
investment modey pours into its
development throughout the world,
says the study published in the
IUOTO Travel Research Journal.
But in spite of thia, it points out,
tourism does not escape criticism
As usual, where there is a strong
contradiction of views, the truth Is
to be found somewhere In between,
the study goes on. Tourism is
unique as an instrument of
development and an item of
international trade In that it brings
the "exporter" into direct contest
with his customer.

Friday, June 8, 1973.


WHEN 21
A Si(k time ago, the
Bahamas Contract Bridge Club
celebrated its move to the
Sheraton British Colonial by
holding a Swiss Teams event.
All the participating players are
formed into teams of four, and
each team plays short matches
against other teams. This is a
most satisfying way of playing
the game; it is not only a more
direct series of contests, but it
also reduces the element of
luck considerably, as compared
with Duplicte PaiA.
During the evening, one
hand came up which gave the
lie to one of the oldest of
Bridge adages. It is commonly
held that if a partnership hold
25 points between the two
hands, and the hands are fairly
I balanced, .Game in No Trumps
is a virtual certainty. The West
player in one match found that
adage in need of revision,
because not only did he hold a
combined 27 points between
his hand and dummy's, but he


I WAS NOT ENOUGH


also contrived to go 3 down,
vulnerable, a most calamitous
result.
After the match, the
woebegone West sought
forgiveness from his team
mates. Together they examined
the hands. They all agreed that
3NT was the best contract, but
after long discussion they were
forced to agree that the hand
was impossibly perverse.
At Game-All, here are the
West and East hands:


8643

A 1042

K75
A Q 9 3 2
K-
I 1092


The bidding was short and
simple: West opened 1
Diamond; East bid I Heart.
West rebid INT, and East went
to 3NT.
North led the 6 of
Diamonds, and West pondered
his play. After examining
several lines of attack, he made
up his mind. He took the lead

West lost 4 Spade tricks
straight off, and was stuck in
his own hand by a Club return,
which meant that he had to
give up yet another Diamond
at the end.
It was argued that he should
have played on Hearts before
touching the Club suit. It was
pointed out that he did. It was
then argued that he should
have played the King of Hearts,
followed by the Jack to
dummy's Queen, playing for
the 10 to drop. It was pointed
out that not only did the 10
not drop on the 3rd round, but
that that vital card was held by
North, who, seeing a
discouraging 3 of Clubs go
from South on the third round
of Hearts, would undoubtedly
have come back with the
Queen of Spades, creating the
same havoc as before.
"Well then", said a still
dissatisfied member of the,
postmortem, "why not take an
immediate Club finesse and
repeat it. Then play the Ace of
Clubs. When the King doesn't
fall, play the Hearts as before,
losing the fourth round to
North's Queen. He shoots back
the Queen of Diamonds and
you duck. Now another
Diamond gives you your
contract."'
The North player in
question was strolling past the
table as the discussion reached
this point. He was seized and
propelled towards the cards
which were laid out on the
table.
"What do you lead after
being allowed to make the
Queen of Diamonds?" he was
asked.
He inspected the hands
carefully. "Easy", he said after


Hearts with that hand. I got a
trump lead, took dummy's two
top trumps, got to my hand
with the King of Diamonds,
drew the rest of the trumps,
then ran the Jack of Clubs.
When that held, I led a Club to
the Queen. Next I cashed the
Ace of Diamonds, discarding a
Spade. Although I lost two
Spades and a Club. No
problem!"
"I still think you ought to
make 3NT", insisted one of the
team, then just managed to
reach cover before someone
threw the board at him.

DEAR ABBY: I am 20 and I'm dating this guy who Is
28. I like him as a date, but I don't like the battles I have
with him to get him to keep his hands to himself.
Ten minutes after I'm in his car he's all over me. He is
really just like a high school sophomore-only stronger.
The day after I've been out with him I ache all over from
fighting him off. I'm not kidding. I've even left some
scratches on his hands and face in addition to ripping his
shirt and breaking his wristwatch.
I am not against a little affection, but this guy acts like
a sex maniac. I am no big turnon, I'm a plain-looking girl
and I don't invite his advances, so I can't understand it.
How can I cool him down without losing him
conmletely? ARIES
DEAR ARIES: If you continue to date this guy you
must be hard up. Quit while you're ahead sad tell the
octopus to get lest.

DEAR ABBY: Our fine, handsome grandson is graduat-
ing from college soon, after which he is marrying a nice
girl he met at college. [I'll call her Mary.] Mary is one of
12 children so there wasn't much money for extras in her
family. To get to the point, Mary is desperately in need of
dental work. It would improve her appearance 100 percent.
I can well afford to pay for any dental work Mary
needs done, but I don't know how to make the offer to our
grandson without offending him. It is a wonder to ns how
this girl could have let her teeth get into such bad shape.
And a greater wonder that our grandson wouldn't have
noticed it. [Or perhaps he has, but didn't know what to do
about it.]
How can we let our grandson know we will foot the bill
if Mary will see a dentist? GRANDPA
DEAR GRANDPA: Tell him [privately] what you've
told me. [P. 8. And since when Is dental care ai "extra"?
It's vital to general good health.]

DEAR ABBY: I am a 16-year-old girl with a big prob-
lem. My favorite cousin is getting married in two months
and my parents won't let me go to the wedding unless I
take off 10 pounds! That is an awful lot to lose in two
months, but my mother said she talked to the doctor and
he said I could do it if I tried. Abby, I would have to live
on practically nothing to lose all that weight in two months.
I'm afraid I would get so weak I couldn't do as well in
school, etc.
I have enough money in the bank to fly to the wedding
which is across the country, but my parents say I can't go
at all unless I lose 10 pounds, and if I do, they will buy my
ticket.
Why are people so prejudiced against overweight
people? It's as if we weren't even human.
Are my parents being unfair to me, Abby? I just have
to go to that wedding. I pray a lot and it makes me feel
better but it doesn't get me there. Please help me.
HEARTBROKEN
DEAR HEARTBROKEN: Five pounds a meoth Is not
6t0 mueh to lose, and if the deter says yeu can do It, yen
shted try. Quit looking for excuses why you CAN'T, and
start oa a diet right now and yo'll make it, Good luck.

TAX LIENS OF $10 MILLION FILED IN FLORIDA COURT
ORLANDO, FLA. (AP)- Tax lions totalling $10 million have been filed
by the Internal Revenue Service against businessman Glenn W. Turner, his
wife, brother and a company he founded.
Federal agents filed $1 million worth of liens Tuesday in Orange County
circuit court against Turner, 38, and his wife, Alice, for back taxes for the
years 1969, 1970, and 1971.
Other liens totalling $3.3 million were filed against Turner's brother,
George, for back taxes for 1969. George Turner is listed as a trustee and
transferee of the assets of Glenn W. Turner Enterprises and its subsidiaries.
On Monday the IRS padlocked Turner's Orlando offices after filing liens
in federal court for a total of $5.7 million in back taxes based on the
estimated income of Koscot Interplanetary Corp., a cosmetics company
founded by Turner. The liens are for the years ending July 1969 and July
1971.
Gordon Simonds, a Turner lawyer, said the IRS seizure of Koscot files
could hamper Turner's defense on federal mail fraud charges and mounting
civil actions which have been flied against him.

George Smith addresses


Bahamian/American group
By Bahma1s Information Service
GEORGE A. SMITH, Parliamentary Secretary to the Prime
Minister and Chairman of the Independence Secretariat told
members of the Bahamian/American Federation in Miami last
weekend that responsibility is the name of the game in an
Independent Bahamian society and each time any single person
shuns his individual responsibility he creates a weak link in the
national chain.


"What is important is that
we do not start pointing out
the wrongs and injustices of
others when, taking a look at
ourselves,, we find that we are
guilty of those same things,"
he said.
Mr. Smith told his audience
that they were all ambassadors
for the Bahamas and whatever
their actions, they reflected on
the Bahamas whatever their
public sentiments, and they tell
something about our islands.
"Although we at home may
seldom see you or hear from
you, the world nevertheless
sees you and hears from you.
That world must see in you a
reflection of the warmth and
friendliness of your heritage at
all times," he stressed.
He told them that the
spoken word was a very
powerful weapon and it is also
a very powerful arm of help.
Therefore, he said, "all have to
join hands and make whatever
contribution they can to
ensure that your youthful
nation maintains respect and
dignity in this troubled world."
Speaking about the
forthcoming Independence for
the Commonwealth of the
Bahamas, Mr. Smith said that
during the few remaining
weeks it is important for each
of them to know what it is far
all of us who live in t'ie
Bahamas, or who live abroad
and call the Bahamas home. He
told them that wherever they
are, so long as they feel a sense
of pride when the name of the
Bahamas is flashed across a
television screen or appears in a
newspaper headline, then the
Bahamas is home for them, and
they are welcome to come
back and enjoy it whenever
they choose.
He explained that as far as
the actual Independence
celebrations go, these will be
varied.
"From July 4 to 11,
ceremonies and celebrations


heralding the birth of our new
nation will take place
throughout our Bahamas. Not
only in the capital city of
Nassau, but on every single
island in our family chain.
There will be singing and


praying and dancing and crying
and flag-raising and boat racing
and more singing and more
dancing.
Perhaps in the entire history
of the Bahamas, only the
season of Christmas has ever
brought a common sense of
celebrations in all our islands,"
he said.
Mr. Smith pointed out that
throughout the eight days of
celebrations there will be much
activity with the high points
being the handing over of the
Constitutional Instruments by
His Royal Highness, the Prince
of Wales, and the raising of the
Bahamas flag on July 10.
Earlier in the day Mr. Smith
addressed the ministers and
laymen of St. John's Baptist
Church. He told them that
"although we are separated by
the physical boundary of the
deep blue ocean, let me say
that we share a common and
everlasting love of brotherhood
which Unites us wherever we
may be.
"The struggle of the church
for the freedom to pursue its
goal has been a persevering
one, not without its perils,
setbacks, pitfalls and hard
times. History has shown us
that nothing good is attained
without effort, sacrifice, and
deprivation of self," he added.
He asked that they recognize
that the road ahead is by no
means an easy one. "There
must be continuous need for
courage, confidence,
self-sufficiency and complete
commitment to our goals, if
Independence for our country
is to be a success. It is a road
which we have chosen freely,
and we accept it willingly."

TWO youths, accused of the
Market Street murder of
Anthony Griffith, 21, on
Tuesday morning were both
charged before Magistrate
Emmanuel Osadebay yesterday
afternoon.
Elroy John Farrington, an
I 8-year-old Rupert Dean Lane
bus-boy, and Augusta Street
resident Vernal Martin, 17,
were not called on to plead.
They are also charged with
robbery.
A date for a preliminary
inquiry into the charge was set
for June 27 by the magistrate.
The charge arose from an
incident that took place on
Market Street early Tuesday
morning when Griffith, also of
Rupert Dean Lane, was
allegedly accosted by two
youths. A "small amount" of
money was reportedly taken
from him.
Police said Griffith was with
a girl at the time of his death.

sispeilel 12 *nths
A 29-year-old Woods
Alley motorcyclist, who
collided with a visiting
American couple on their way
to the beach on January 2,
had his licence suspended for
12-months by Chief Magistrate
Wilton Hercules.
George Wilson, a Pilot House
Club bartender was also fined
$145 or five months in prison
for driving without due care
and attention, riding a
motorcycle while it was neither
insured nor licensed and while
he himself did not have a
driver's licence.
Wilson pleaded guilty to
each of the four offences. The
January 2 accident on West
Bay Street, occurred while
New Jersey residents, Mrs.
Anna Nebl, 23, and her
husband, John Frederick Nebl,
were crossing the street from
the Shell Service Station.
Both tourists were
hospitalized for a short period,
Mrs. Nebl with lacerations and
concussion and Mr. Nebl for
other minor injuries.

A 20-YEAR-OLD Apple
Street house-maid who left her
two young sons at the home of
their grandmother, Mrs.
Albertha Clarke of Clarke Lane
between October 28 and April
II was fined $100 or six
months in jail when she
appeared before Magistrate
Emmanuel Osadebay
Thursday.
The magistrate, very
disturbed by the number of
cases involving child cruelty
coming before the court said
that such incidents of child
cruelty should cause the
Welfare Department of the
Ministry of Labour to carry
out a campaign to discourage
it.
The case, invioving the two
children. James Rolle, 4, and
Anthony Rolle, 2%, and their
mother Albertha Bodle-Curry
was one of several cases to
come before the magistrate this
year.
Taking note of the
prevalence of such cases, he
noted that "five or six cases
have come before me during
the past couple months."
The young mother changed
her not guilty plea to one of
fpilty when she appeared In
court yesterday. In a statement
which she ad given to the
police, die A dM was not
able to take mprr onam of the
children and "their daddy gives
thim nothing."
She ev OW slhe felt that
they were being treated better


at the Ranfurly Home for
Children than when they are in
her custody.
The children had been
taken to the orphanage after
her mother, Mrs. Clarke had
informed the Welfare
Department that they had been
abandoned by her mother.


Their mother had also told
the police that she left the two
boys with their grandmother
on the afternoon of October
28 as she had nowhere else to
leave them.
"I knew that she would take
very good care of them and
treat them well," she said. She

REX MORGAN, M.D.


By DAL CURTIS


GENERAL TEDMENCIMS: The morning fad
you upset about not being able to do perfel
the wask you are doing, but persevere. Afternoon and eveamt
bring to light all kinds of arguments or discussion with othis
that you would be wise to avoid by refusing to argue.
ARIES (Mar. 21 to Apr. 19) Get that dull work dons esay
and be suae to use diplomacy in handling any problem that
crops up later in the day. This may be rather a difficult day,
but take things in your stride. Avoid an overly talkative person
in p.m.
TAURUS (Apr. 20 to May 20) Your chance for having
recreation does not materialize, so get busy on whatever is
important, whether of a creative or practical nature. Take it
easy tonight and renew your energies. Read some.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 21) Look about your home and
see what improvements should be made there and agt busy on
them. Try to keep steady and not low your temper with
others. Go over reports for possible errors.
MOON CHILDREN (June 22 to July 21) Work in the
outside world can be nerve-racking and it's not much better at
home, but keep your cool. Do whatever you can to relieve
tensions. Plan tonight for tomorrow's activities so they go
smoothly.
LEO (July 22 to Aug. 21) Give a much attention as you
can to some problem you have to solve in the a.m. Later reach
a better understanding with a troubled fellow-woaker.
Asaociates come to your aid financially.
VIRGO (Aug. 22 to Sept. 22) If you attune yourself better
planetarily, you come out of that dough of despondency you
have been in for some time, get much done. Make yourself
look charming and then ask favors of others. Use tact.
LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Morning is best time to handle
small accumulated tasks and then out down tendons with
others. Plan how to take care of personal matters wisely, as
soon as they come up. Do nothing that keeps you from
progssing.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You are in a bad mood and
could take irritation out on a gooead so ayoid this. Solve
that problem wisely later on. A new attitude can help you gain
that personal aim easily now. Relax tonight.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Career matters should
be handled well in a.m. so that you need not worry about
them, then investigate some new outlet Find out what a
bigwig wants early, then carry thrjagh in a fine manner. Make
big headway.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 20) You have fine ideas out
it is not the best time to put them in action, so concentrate on
other matters and you have time free for them later on.
Intuition is not working well. Don't follow it.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19) Either pay or collect some
important bill in a.m., then be with an associate to solve some
joint problem. A little time away from another partner will
relieve tensions easily. Study some tonight.
PISCES (Feb. 20 to Mar. 20) You understand what an
associate has in mind but don't voice that idea as yet until you
have studied it further. Handle outside affairs carefully, or
there can be real trouble. Think constructively.
IP YOUR CHILD IS BORN TODAY ... he or she will be
one of those delightful young people who can solve problems
easily, but teach early to get right at the real issues and the
crux of the matter instead of Just rushing in pell-mell and
working at tangents; otherwise he or she will make a big
production of them and not get good results quickly. Give as
fine an academic education as you can, since there is much
love of study here. Sports are excellent here.

All hopes of setting a new
record in the 540-mile race,
now in its seventh year, were
smoothered under cloudy
skies, scattered storms and high
winds out o'f the
east-northeast.
The bad weather took a
heavy toll of the 16 entries.
Three were unable to take
their places at the starting line,
for the first time located this
year in Nassau Harbour.
Then, only an hour and 36
minutes after the 8 a.m. start,
Tom Gentry of Hawaii and his
number 99 boat dropped out
of the race.
*Number 711 driven by Keith
Hazell and John Heinrich's

The 6ft. Sins. forward,
who has also caught the eye of
coach Adrian Buoncristiani of
Gonzaga University, was the ,
leading scorer in the Arizona
Community College Athletic I
Conference with an average of
25 points per game.
Of equal importance was the A
fact that he ranked ninth in the
nation in field goal percentages
among community college
teams. His record of 276 of
422 attempts, for a 65A.4
percentage was a major factor
in the team's number 2 ratings
in the nation in field goal
percentage.
Coach Buoncristiani whose
team competes in the Big Sky
Conference said that of all the
Junior college forwards they
were able to look at, "we
thought Cat Minns was the
best. He is an exceptional
jumper who posesses good
guard skills and can handle the
middle of the fast break. We
feel that he will be a capable
replacement for one or two of
the forwards We lost through
graduation."
In his two years at the
college, in the southeast corner
of Arizona on the United
States-Mexuco boarder,. .Mias
proved to be a good cities as'
well as an outstanding
basketball pleaar, and earned
the sespectd(l-w students,'
a Cosehise 104 release said.
inn to 1972-'73 was
A.-Tourna"nft for the Desert
Classic; A-Tournament for the
South Plains, Texas
tournament and
All-Conference.
RECORD BREAKER
In his outstanding
performance, Minns broke four
Cochiae College records: most
point for a season, 62; most
assists for a single same, 13;
highest eld goal peenta,
65.4; and the most points
scored by two played with
Minns gettng35 of the 72.
Before going to Cochia,
Minns was MVP in basketball
