TEACHERS UNION CHIEF IN NO-HOLDS BARRED

ANNUAL REPORT RAPS MINISTRY, OFFICERS & MPs


Bad


conditions are feared this


By MIKE LOTHIAN
"THERE IS NO DOUBT IN OUR MINDS that come
September there will be a shortage of teachers as well as
of teaching space," and the Education Ministry "is
without excuse and must accept full responsibility," the


president of the Bahamas
last night.
"There is every reason to
believe that conditions this
September will be worse than
those that existed last
September," BUT president
Cecil N. Curling warned.
Mr. Curling charged the
Ministry with failing to live up
to agreements and with
frustrating teachers, and took
on back-bench politicians in a
no-holds-barred annual report
to the BUT conference opened
last night at the Bahamas
Teachers College.
"Last year," the union
leader told the teachers, "the
union was distressed over the
fact that a whole school, L.W.
Young, was housed in the C. I.
Gibson and Donald W. Davis
auditoriums. The union made
strong representations and
valid suggestions to the
ministry at the time to try and
remedy the situation.
Unfortunately, our proposals
were not acted upon until a
major crisis developed within
the school
"There is every reason to
believe that conditions this
September will be worse than
those that existed last
September. The two junior
high schools (L. W. Young
and S. C. McPherson) which
were promised for September
'72 will not be ready in
September '73.
"The union has rep- atedl:
tried to get the Ministry to
come up with an alternative
plan in the event that the
schools would not be
completed in September. So
far we do not know what their
plans are, and we fear that

September will be too late to
make them. The union is
worried, to say the least, over
the prospects for September.
and the attitude and morale
existing among senior officials
at headquarters," Mr. Curling
said.
lHe continued: "Instead of
the Minister and his senior staff
getting together with the
union, placing the cards face
up on the table and trying to
find solutions to the niany
problems that confront us. we
find that many of the senior
officials are trying to leave uis.
TEACHER SHORTAGES
"There is no doubt in our
minds that come September
there will be a shortage of
teachers as well as of teaching
space. At the moment we do
not have all the facts, we can
only guess at therm. But
whatever they are the union is
prepared to work hand in hand
with the Ministry to try and
overcome some if the
difficulties.
"In this joint venture the
leadership must conime from the
Minister of Education and
Culture (Livingst, n Coakley)
who alone, we understand,
makes decisions on minor and
major issues.
Having already explained the
reasons for the classroom
shortage, the BUT president
went on to show why there


would he a teacher shortage.
and why the Minstri wast,
responsible.
Mr Curling said in ()ctobier
last year the uni)Ion melt with
the Minister aind senllior
Ministry officials to make a
number of suggestions.
"One of the suIggestions was,,
that the Ministry should try to
find out the number oft
teachers that would be
required for September. 1973
and that they should advertise
for those teachers not later
than January of 1973."
MINISTRY 1T BLANMI:
lie explained that the
requirements would be easily
determined by Januarty as
teachers already employed by
the Government must give at
least one term's notice oft
intention to terminate.
"The union stressed thie
fact," he continued, "that
from past experience if the
Ministry did not advertise for
teachers in time the only ones
they would get would be those
who were unable to find
employment elsewhere, or
those who could not make Lip
their minds as to what they
wanted to do.
"That type of teacher the
country does not need or want.
"The Union is aware that
the Ministry sent their indent
for teachers to the U.K.
sometime in May, knowing


that it would lie too late to
obtain teachers for September.
lThe \Ministry, therefore, is
without excuse and must
accept full responsibility for
whatever the situation is inr
September."
Mr. Curling added
"'I often wonder, and
perhaps wrongly, that if the
children of the top officials of
the Ministry of Ehducation and
Culture were attending
Government schools instead of
independent schools, if more
effort and energy would not
have been displayed in trying
to better conditions for those
unfortunate ones who must
attend our schools."
A(GRI DI), NO ACTION
Mr. Curling went on to cite a
case in which the NMinistry
agreed to a major union
proposal, but subsequently
failed to carry it out,
"Last year our past
president Mr. (1inoch)
Backtord commented that far
too many children were
entering the junior high schools
from the primary schools not
being able to read or write.
"Therefore. at our annual
conference last year a
resolution was unaLnimousiIls
passed that the Ministiy of
Education and Culture appoint
a committee to look into all
aspects of primary education inl
the Commonwealth of their
Bahamas, and that that
committee be followed by ,
similar committee to look imt
secondary education.
STILL WAITING
"The executive commitcrntee
forwarded tile resolution to lbe
Ministry and reminded olfictials
in the Ministry on several
occasions about tlie
importance and need for such a
committee. On each occasion
we were told that the Ministry
agreed with the resolution 1001
percent and that a committee
would be appointed without
delay. Twelve months have
gone by and we are still waiting
ftor the appointment of the
cominiltee.
"We are aware that there is
much room for improvement
in our educational system,"
Mr. Curling continued, "and it
is going to take our collective
effort to bring about the
changes that are necessary to
meet the needs of an
independent Bahamas.
"In the past officials of the
Ministry felt that all ideas and
suggestions should come from
(Ministry) headquarters, and
consequently have rejected
sound proposals put forward
by the union to the detriment

Watergate'-- Vesco
to ask why it was against him.
Asked about denial of a lU.S.
request to extradite him to the
United States, Vesco said "my
presence in the United States
would aggravate the Watergate
case. But I do not believe the
embassy was interested in
having its gesture fail. Besides I
think that there has been
enough of Watergate. The
political enemies of Nixon have
gone too far and only have
interest in prejudicing him.'
After Costa Rican courts
declined to extradite Vesco
there was speculation locally
that the United States really
did not want his return becuase
it might aggravate the
Watergate case.
Vesco and ex-Commerce
Secretary Maurice Stans and
ex-Attorney General John
Mitchell also were indicted in
connection with a $200,00
contribution, mentioned as a
possible source of financing for
the Watergate bugging.

Minister cotiiidi linid no way t'cut

union's proposals
TRANSH R I'ROPOSAL
Mr Curling wei onl to say
the union sronglr \ advocates a
transfer ol the ir'sponsihbdity
for the running of) individual
schools liom the Ministry
headquarters to the school
headmasteis and their staff.
"The union is of the opinion
that the set-up at the Ministry
of I':lducItion headquarters
continueIILs to irustr,rte Iteachers
and hinders the piogress of the
scho ols I
lie saidl headmasters should
be glen responsibilhty for
recruiting teachers,. ordering
supplies and looking liter the
day-to-day operation o their
scht l ),
Soonit much interference in
the administration of a school
can onil lead to I rustration
and retard the progress of the
sch I lihe Ministry employs
several people to pertormn jobs
thil lthe headmaster and his
stArllt could he performing more
clnpciently than anyone at
:icadiiquarters."
POLITICS ANS III
Hle I.ttacktd politicians who
interfere' in the transfer of
teacher,
'Froin where we sit it would
appear that the only power left
to the backbenchers is to be
able to have teachers
trasi trrcd ( from one t amilyr
island to another.
"We would like to advised
thost politicians who indulge
iI such tactics that they are
not only disrupting and
frustrating our teachers, but
they are doing a disservice to
their constituency.
"It politicians are wise they
should try to encourage
teachers to remain in their
districts for at least three years,
because the rapid turnover of
staff will retard the progress of
any school."
The BUT chief had no good
words for the Ministry, either,
on the question of teacher
transfers.
MINISTRY RAPPED
lie said the union had been
trying for a long time to get
the Ministry to revise its
policies so that transfers take
place only at the end of the
school year, and so that the
teachers involved can be
advised of the transfer as early
as possible.
"The Ministry saw the
wisdom of the union's
recommendations and agreed
to them. But, unfortunately,
teachers for one reason or
another are still being
transferred in the middle of the
school year and in some cases
they are not informed about
their transfer until after the
transfer should have been
effective."
Summing up, Mr. Curling
said:
"This year we are indeed
sorry that we are unable to
congratulate the Ministry of
Education and Culture on their
performance during 1972-73.
"This year. the union was
like a turtle, who makes
progress only when he sticks
his neck out. We have stuck
our necks out in many
directions and we have made
progress. We will continue to
make progress and therefore
we will have to continue to
stick our necks out, even at the
risk of losing them.
"In closing, may I remind
you that although the dark
clouds are gathering and the
storm is about to descend upon
us those of us who love our
country will stand firm,
weather the storm and try to
build a bright and glorious
Bahamas."

By Shirley Chrireian
UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (AP) A Puerto Rican
independence advocate Thursday accused the United States of
violating international law by exercising political, economic and
military control over the Caribbean island.


By The Associated Press
RI ACTION to the
nomination of iHenry A.
Kissinger as Secretary of State
continued generally favourable
Thursday both in this country
and abroad.
Sen. Stuart Symington,
D-Mo., a member of the Senate
f foreign relations committee,
said, however, Kissinger would
ni l into difficulties if
questions arise about his
additional role as a Presidential
adviser.
"'i Dr. Kissinger agrees to

about the present and future
policies and prograninies of the

said.
"It there is any question
about his additional work in

cxecuttive privilege, a position
ll' has taken in the past. I doh)
liot believe the coinmittee will

A n ) o t I cr c o ill it tee'
nicinhbe, Sen. Frank ('Church,
I)- Id llo, predicted no
difficulty in confirmingg
Kissinger and said "tie fact is
that Kissinger has been the
inajor architect of o )ur foreign
policy during the Nixon years.
Ills installation as Secretary of
State will raise the morale ol
lie Slate D)epartnment."
Senate Republican leader
Hugh Scott of Pennsylvania.
,ls() a committee member, said
lie had assured Kissinger "of
I)tt cooperation and strong
su pportl."
Sen,. George McGovern,
D-S.I)., another committee
ilelilber, said "Kissinger is
highly able .I. l hope that he
will devote his considerable
lilcnts fully to the pursuit of
peace,"
Sen. George D. Aiken of
Vermont, Ranking Republican
nit the foreign relations
contmilittee, had said shortly
after Kissinger's appointment
that lie expects the Senate to
approve the nomination. If
there is criticism of Kissinger,
hie said, it will really be aimed
at President Nixon.
Sen. John Stennis, D-Miss.,
said, "Kissinger is an excellent
choice for Secretary of State
and is already familiar with our
foreign policy in all major
areas. I think he will be
confirmed by the Senate and I
shall support his nomination."
Rep Thomas E. Morgan,
D-Pa., chairman of the House
foreign affairs committee, said
the choice of Kissinger is a
welcome one and he also
approves of President Nixon's
decision to continue him as
National Security Affairs
Adviser.
Abroad, Arab Radio
broadcasts and editorials
repeatedly noted that Kissinger
is Jewish and implied this may
make it more difficult for
Arabs to deal with the United
States on the Middle East
crisis.
In Tel Aviv, the Jerusalem
Post reported that Israeli
officials believe the
appointment means a
strengthening in White House
direction of foreign policy.
The religious newspaper
Hlatzofeh expressed hope that
Kissinger's "Jewishness won't
complicate matters as it hasn't
in the past."
The nomination of Kissinger
as U.S. Secretary of State
"crowns a prodigious career,"
the Paris newspaper Le Monde
commented inursday while
wondering whether he could
mend fences with America's
Atlantic partners as well as he
has with its adversaries.
"Hle does not exhibit a deep
interest in economic problems,
which are at the root of what
he has called Atlantic
misunderstandings," Le Monde
said. The "cold and sometimes
cynical calculations" used in
dealing with Moscow and
Peking, Le Monde said, will not
necessarily be as successful in

Mari Bras and Berrios
entered the Trusteeship
Council chamber with
anibasador Ricardo Alarcon

Bras praised for his long efforts
to get them a U.N. hearing.
"lie has become the true

people ... during the time the
Puerto Rican people was
unable to raise its own voice in
the United Nations," said Mari
Bras.
"The historic ties that bind
Cuba and Puerto Rico in the

EXPLOITATION
Mari Bras said the United
States set up a "classical type
of colonial system" after
taking Puerto Rico from Spain
in the war of 1898, then
gradually imposed U.S. laws
and economic exploitation and
U.S. citizenship.
North American capitalists,
he said, have investments

said.

that has surrounded their living
under the asphixiating
limitations imposed by the
United States has forced them
to flee."
lie said the U.S. government
promotes the migration so as
to supply cheap labour to
marginal industries on the
mainland.
DISCRIMINATION
"Puerto Rican labour is at
the lowest rung of the social
ladder all over the United
States," said Mari Bras. "In the
United States, Puerto Ricans
are suffering the most shameful
discrimination that this racial
society can mete out."
lie said Puerto Ricans are
used in much the same way in
the homeland because the U.S.
industries which move to the
island do so to avoid paying
decent wages. Hle said
government statistics show the
average worker in Puerto Rico
receives an average of one-third
the wages paid on the mainland
but that the cost of living in
Puerto Rico is higher than in
the united States.
Mari Bras charged that
wherever a Puerto Rican turns
on his own soil he is never far
from a U.S. military
installation. Hlie said B52s fly
out of the northwest of the
island carrying nuclear
warheads all over the world.
lIe said there is a nuclear
arsenal at military installations
on Culebra and the eastern
end of the island in violation of
the Treaty of Tlatelolco. The
treaty, which the United States
ratified, prohibits nuclear
weapons in Latin America.
Mari Bras urged the
committee to visit Puerto Rico
and to approve a resolution
declaring in its operative part
that Puerto Rico is entitled to
self-determination and
independence. It said as much
in the preambular paragraph of
a resolution approved last year.


LONDON (AP) A lethal
letter bomb was deliver-
ed to Prime Minislei
F dward Heath's ofl fcl.il
residence at No. 10 Downirg
Street Thursday amid a wave
ol bomb scares throughout
London.
Police said there was littic
doubt that the Irish
Republican Army was
responsible.
Scotland yard said tlie
device, addressed to one of
IHeath's secretaries, was "dealt
with by security experts.'
The Primne Minister was not
in London at the time. lie was
conferring with labour union
leaders at Chequers, Ins
country residence northwest of
the capital.
Another letter honib of
the type that Scotland Yard
says "can cut a man in hall"'
was delivered earlier in the day
to the Defence Ministry.
And a time bomb was
defused in a subway station
crowded with commuters anid
foreign tourists at the height of
the evening rush hour.
Bomb scares closed subway
stations at Baker Street,
Waterloo and Picadilly Circus.
I-uston, a main terminal for
trains to the north, was cleared
of passengers for two hours
and all rail services were halted
while police checked a
telephone call that another
time bomb had been planted
there.
Scotland Yard, now ready to
combat an allout IRA terror
onslaught in London atd the
home counties on the British
mainland, declined to give full
details of the letter bomb
delivered to Heath's Georgian
mansion in Downing Street.
But police sources said the
explosive device was placed
inside a book about the
German composer Mahler.
Most of the other nine letter
bombs delivered in the capital
since Saturday also were in
music books.
The one addressed to
Heath's secretary was opened
by a mechanical screener, the
sources said.
Police said they now
regarded the IRA as behind the

Something dramatic?


By I TII NNNE DLUPUCH('

Addressing a meeting of the Bahamas Chamber of 'Commerce
recently Ministei otf Developmennt Carlton Francis declared that
"something diuanatic" needs to be done to revitalize the
construction industry "which has not been moving toa
expectations .
The constLruction industry collapsed over three years ago as a
result of government policies that frightened investment away.
One only has to loiok through the pages of the Official Gazette
and see ll)ow many companies are being struck off the register ....
and how few new companies are being added to the list ... to
realize that ..... iiing serious has been happening to the
ectonomiiVy lor a very long time now.
But now ... three years too late ... the government realize that
somethingg dramatic" needs to he done to reverse the downward
trend.
They are establishing another high cost organization to
duplicate tiie work that the Ministry of Tourism in the UBP
government did for lhe colony in addition to its tourist
promotion programme.
They have now resorted to a policy of desperation and in this
state of mind they are bound to plunge still deeper into stupidity.
Somebody has sold them a "snow job" that is going to cost a
pile oft money without any chance ot producing the miracle they
expect.

At this point the government should accept the fact that,
through inexperience and unhealthy emotional influences. they
have destroyed the people's breadbasket.
At this point they should sit down and try to discover where
they have gone wrong .... and then try to retrace their steps.
They are looking for a miracle that will not liappen.

'he Bahanmas a pauper in natural resources prospered on a
single asset .... and this was built on the abstract human qualities
of goodwill and confidence.
A painful example of how goodwill was destroyed was the case
in which Mr. Francis spitefully held nearly 200 American tourists
virtually prisoners at the airport.
A painful example of how confidence was destroyed was the
"bend or break" campaign launched against Freeport by the
Prime Minister, ending with the immoral breaking of a solemn
contract.
Somewhere between goodwill and confidence comes another
abstract quai.ity that is needed in building an enduring society ....
and that is security, both of a man's person and for his
investments.
Apart from thile steady increase in violent crimes no one can
feel secure ill a country where Immigration restrictions are
ruthlessly and brutally enforced .... where the Prime Minister is
aware of abuses of power by his Minister of Finance and does
nothing to curb him .... and where the Finance Minister will get
up on a platform and publicly declare that the government has
the power to control the imports and exports of the country ....
and will do just this if merchants fail to fall in line!
Fear stalks abroad in the country because no one knows where
the hydra-headed monster will strike next.

I can tell the Development Minister that if he is looking for a
miracle .... it will not happen. ie has been sold the idea th;t bhe
can set up a department that will do what the Ministry of
Tourism lhas failed to do. The Ministry of Tourism has failed
because it has no assets to offer investors or the travelling public.
But it might he possible to check the rot at its present level if
the govertlnmenlt would subject itself to a close self-examination
.... and then cut out ou all the damn foolishness it has been doing
from the first day it took over the lielin of govenitrnmenlt.
T/t'r' m/stt', recognize that the H/ahaias is a completely
dependent territory'. 'We don't hare a single thing to offer that the
outside world can't do without .... But tie Itahamian people
cannot sur'ire without a steady inflowIt' f inmn'y front the
outside world.
It's just as simple as that, mister. Cut out all the damni
childishness and start performing like mature mieni.

Given so .... recovery will be a slow painful, long-drawn-out
process.
You can destroy confidence overnight .... btut thlis is a human
element that it takes years to rebuild .... because there is always
the fear lurking behind people's minds that. having happened
once .... the liydra-headed monster imigt strike again.
Remember this folks .... while it is true that government has
the power to control everything within the borders of the
Bahamas, what the B:ilahamian people need to survive is beyond
the jurisdiction of tlihe government .... it must come in voluntarily
.... and it will coLie in only if goodwill and confidence phls ai
sense of security are restored.

In all hIris activities in government Minister of Finance Arthur
Hfanna displays an alarming lack of understanding of business.
On thIe question of wages hlie declared that when merchants
increase wages their prices go up "'a hundred times more than the
wages do".
This little mnah doesn't yet realize what is Ihappening to
business in the Bahat as nor does hIe seem to cae liow many
taxes have been inflicted on the Bahamiian people by the PLP
government in order to support their blundering incompetence.
The cost of living is spiraling alarminigly. This timeains that
working people need to earn more money. But their employers
are caught ont the cleft stick of a dilemma.
It is difficult to increase wages in a rapidly diminishing
economy. An employer can't afford to pay out what hie is not
earning.

On the question of wages ... the Minister of Finance made
another remarkable statement
It is that this government .... lhat goaded labour into
irresponsible actions when they were in tire opposition .... now


WANTS TO HONOUR

SIR MILO BUTLER


(


I DI) I OR. I lie II nh ne.
In !it\ last al litcl I
ie itillond the tdUI thal
liaiIdinuns jIe a peculiar
people and it is this pe uliarity
I suppose whilh makes us
tippear ditllerent from the other
pciple in this hemiIsphere On
August 1 1973. a new governor
general in the person of Sir
\1ilo B Butler was sworn in.
and for the first time 11m the
history of the Bahamas a
Bahamian was the Queen's
representative here
I'o mark thins auspicious
iccLasiion, a parade in honour oft
Sir Milo was held and was,
comprised of members of the
police and police reserves.
From then onwards I have
been answering questions
What happened to the l region,
why weren't they on their
parade to honour their own?
Does the Legion only turn out
to honour certain people? Wil'
the Legion make a presentation
to Sir Milo?
I want to make it quite plain
that I am not speaking for the
Legion in any official capacity,
but as one of the disappointed
members of the body Let me
also stress the fact that because
I was unable to honour Sir
Milo in my capacity as an
ex-serviceman, I did so as a
police reserve. I am not
blaming any individual because
I don't know who to blame,
but it would appear to ic that
somewhere along the official
line no one really knows or
cares about the role of


says his government does not favour increasing wages.
And then he made a startling revelation. It wais that the
government's payroll is now S50 million a year almost half the
annual budget!
In six years this government has more than doubled its staff. It
is twice as large and half as efficient.
These men are suffering from a complex that makes then feel
the need for a status symbol. And so they have been madly
building great public structures all over the place. In the past
public officers functioned well in simple quarters. But this
government needed to show off ... and so it has created imposing
structures and staffed them with an overplus of people.
The worst feature of all this is that it has been done with
borrowed money.
It's good business to go in debt on enterprises that yield
income .... but it is the first step down the road to bankruptcy
when a business man borrows money to make a big show.
Just remember this .... government is the biggest business in
aN.y country. And there is a limit to which they can tax people to
support stupidity.

We are now told that business houses are going to) be forced to
buy products manufactured in the West Indies.
This is very nice and brotherly in a way .... but just remember
that the Bahamas is still a tourist resort where our customers
expect to buy quality goods.
Even before a squeeze is put on merchants .... because of the
depressed state of the economy .... the quality of goods being
imported into the island, is already going down.
There was a time when a shopper could find the finest grade of'
silver in some of the shops in the city. Recently my wife went
shopping for a piece of silver for a couple who were celebrating
their silver wedding anniversary. She had great difficulty in
finding something suitable. There was no range of choice to be
found in the shops.

Only a few weeks earlier we were in the area in London known
as the Silver Mines where we could have found a fine gift.
The Silver Mines in London are an interesting shopping area.
All the finest silver shops in the city are located in a vaulted
underground area which is safe from robbery.
When a robbery is committed an alarm is sounded and all the
approaches and exits to this underground place are automatically
sealed off with steel gates. This happened while we were in the
Mines and we saw the burglar proof system go into action.
Nothing moved until the police came. The two people involved
were arrested and taken away .... and the gates were opened
again.

I have strayed from the subject but I thought you would
be interested in hearing about the Silver Mines in London.
I didn't know about this place but my brother Eugene and his
wife Dorothy spent several years at school in England .... they
know the city well .... and they introduced my wife and mie to
this interesting shopping centre.
The amusing part of this story is that when the alarm went otiff
my brother and I were on the outside of the closed doors while
our wives were on the inside. I had gone with him to a nearby
law centre to look for some books he needs in his law practice.
We returned just .s the steel doors sealed us off from our wives.

And now about the West Indian goods.
Recently a Caribbean Community and Comnmoun market was
established among the islands in the Caribbean.
Two of the islands refused to join this trading bloc. One of
these islands was Antigua.
Why didn't Antigua join the market'.'?
An Associated Press despatch from Bridgetown, Barbados
reported that the island's Premier, George Walter, announced that
he did not intend to sacrifice Antigua's well-being for Caribbean
development.
He said thle accord would have meant Antigua having to
purchase from all the more developed countries at higher prices
than the country now paid to North Anmerica and Europe and in
most cases Caribbean products were inferior to most in North
4 merica antd ;iurope.
****** **
If we are going to stay in the tourist business we must maintain
high standards.
One way to do it. of course. would be tihe Communist way.
Communllist countries have two levels of shops. One in which
goods are sold to tourists and another in which inferior goods are
sold to the natives. The natives are not allowed to enter tourist
shops.
If this is what you want ... go ahead. I have no doubt that
Little Caesar could make it work.

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY
The world is a looking-glass, and gives back to every man the
reflection of his own face. Frown at it, and it in turn will look
sourly upon you: laugh at it and with it, and it is a jolly, kind
tcotTpati ion.

Arnold's Dept. Store moves to


SERVES CUSTOMERS Mr. Arnold Ageeb of Arnold's Department Store, Bay
Street, shows his selection of carpets to three customers.
PHOTO: Fhilip Symonette


By Daphne Wallace Whitfield
ARNOLD'S Department
Store moved to a new location
slightly east of the old. The
new spacious store is now
located on Bay Street at the
corner of stately Victoria
Avenue.
Arnold's is a haven for men's
and boys' polyester pants
and the new space
accommodates a wide
variety of styles and colours.
For back-to-school pants this is
the time to take advantage
of the excellent value in
boys' long polyester pants
(no laundry bills and no
or practically no ironing).
Boys' polyester pants in
solid colours are a budget $8
a pair or $24 for three pairs.
Boys' suits are often an
extravagance as usually they
get little use out of them
for church, confirmations,
weddings or funerals. We live


new location on Bay St.


in a more casual day and age
in which a suit for many
social occasions today would
be too stiff and formal.
Therefore, for the purse-wise
parent the purchase of a suit
which the child outgrows
long before it is worn out
takes a disproportionate
percentage of the clothes
budget. However, this need
not be so Arnold's have
boys' suits for S14 .......
Arnold's also have shirts galore.
Solid mod colours in
mauves, greens, yellows,
etc... cost S 12.95 they
were $16.95. Striped shirts
with fashionable large colars
are S6.95 they were


S10.95.
HANES LINE
At the entrance there is a
complete line of Hanes
underwear in white and
colours and also Ilanes knit
shirts in three price ranges
from S 10.95 for finest
quiility to S2.95 for more
utilitarian wear.
Although Arnold's is not a
shoe store as such they stock
shoes tor all members of the
family with a good selection
of children's shoes.
In fact Arnold's aimns at being


a one-stop store with
something of almost
everything towels, area
rugs, bathing suits and
drapes. They have a cafe
curtain set for $2.50 and
some good-looking place set
mats in various plaid
patterns.
For the young set, tourists or
those older ladies who feel
they can get away with it
there are a wealth of short
Afro print dresses complete
with matching hot pants at
budget prices.

SATURDAY MATINEE ONLY
MATINEE STARTS AT 2:15


1 rich, pretty,


intelligent 2d wife

one with children living with her. She can take a social
drink but she should know when to stop. Under no circum-
stances would I marry a woman who smokes. She can be
anywhere from 35 to 50, but she must be in good health and
romantically inclined.
I am a 49-year-old widower who was happily married to
the same woman for 26 years. I am 6 ft. 3 and weigh 210
pounds. I am in excellent health and work out in the YMCA
daily. I have a master's degree and earn $12,000 a year. I
work a 40-hour week and have every weekend off, like to
dance, swim and travel. I do not smoke or get drunk, and I
am definitely romantically inclined.
I think it's just as easy to love a rich woman as a poor
one if all the other qualifications are met. Does this make
sense to you? LOOKING
DEAR LOOKING: Yes. And It's just as easy for a rich
woman to love a rich man. And a lot easier for her to land
one, so don't get your hopes up.
DEAR ABBY: My husband and I live directly across
the highway from his parents, who are very nice.
We have an opportunity to sell our home, which is on a
one-acre piece of property given to us by his parents. They
say we shouldn't sell because they gave us that land. Now
my husband has reconsidered selling, and I am very unhap-
py.
Abby, we have two sons, 3 and 5 years old, and it is
very dangerous living on a busy highway because the boys
like to run across it a lot to visit their grandparents. We
can't keep them inside all year round, and a fence doesn't
help.
We offered to pay his parents for the land, but they
refuse to accept anything. Are they being selfish? Or am I
being hoggish? WANTS TO SELL
DEAR WANTS: A gift once given becomes the property
of the person to whom it was given. His parents have
attached strings to their gift. This is their way of keep-
lag you near them, and unless your husband Is sufficiently
Independent to sell anyway, they've got you where they
want you.
DEAR ABBY: I am writing for suggestions on what to
do about a husband who is in the armed forces, stationed in
Missouri. He doesn't feel that it's necessary to keep in
touch.
I've asked him to write: He's too "busy." I've asked
him to phone: It's too expensive.
Since he doesn't bother writing to me, I didn't write to
him, so finally after a long silence, he called me. When I
tried to explain why I hadn't written he wouldn't listen.
I am employed full time and have two children to look
after. I told him I worry when I get no word from him, and
his response was: "If I die, the service will inform you."
What do you suggest! LETTERLESS
DEAR LETTERLESS: Quit playing tit for tat, and
write to him whether you hear from him or not. And write
happy, cheerful, newsy, Interesting letters. And include
local newspaper items and amusing cartoons. You can
catch more bears with honey than the bait you're throwing
out.
CONFIDENTIAL TO S. F. IN ATLANTA: No one said
it better than Mark Twain: "Grief can take care of itself,
but to get the full value of joy, you must have someone to
share It with."

ORHOSCOPE
.l, ~ from the Carrol Righte Institute
\- N" GENERAL TENDENCIES: The daytime finds
\ an odd influence in effect. You need to be
careful not to become involved in a shady situation without
realizing it. The evening finds you with the energy and good
judgment to put a new project into action.
ARIES (Mar. 21 to Apr. 19) A fine day for being observant
but not for forcing your ideas on others. Once your outside
duties are well handled, do some entertaining at home. Invite
charming people and have fun.
TAURUS (Apr. 20 to May 20) Daytime can be confining
with important duties you have to handle but later you can air
your views to the right people. Engage in only those
recreations you like in the evening. Be poised.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 21) Do whatever will add to your
vitality during day hours. In the evening go out socially and
make a good impression on others. Talk with a trusted adviser
on ways to increase income.
MOON CHILDREN (June 22 to July 21) First handle those
personal affairs that are important to your well-being and then
go to the amusements that you like. A new plan needs more
study if you want it to succeed.
LEO (July 22 to Aug. 21) Steer clear of one who gossips
during day hours. Engage in activities of a constructive nature.
Personal aims can be achieved later in the day. Come to a
better understanding with loved one.
VIRGO (Aug. 22 to Sept. 22) Not a good day for adding to
public prestige, so keep rooted to routines and get them out of
the way. Know what your personal goals are and then be
positive in action. Relax at home tonight.
LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) It is wise to obtain the data
you need early in the morning so that you will be prepared
when dealing with a higher-up later in the day. Evening is fine
for enjoying favorite amusement.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Busying yourself with the
handling of monetary affairs in the morning is wise and then
you can meet with allies and make better plans for the future.
Intuition is excellent tonight.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Being more
understanding of the ideas of an associate and cooperating
more with this person brings about greater success now. A
civic matter should be handled before attending the social.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 20) You have to be more
determined and take on regular duties early so that you have
free time for recreation later in the day. Take time for health
treatments. Be more pleasing to kin.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19) You are now able to delve
right into that work you have been putting off for a long time.
Put those creative ideas to work and impress others. Try to
please good pals in the evening.
PISCES (Feb. 20 to Mar. 20) If you keep silent at home,
those tensions will soon be removed and then you can
accomplish a grea deal in the business world. Evening is ideal
for the social side of life. Be happy.
IF YOUR CHILD IS BORN TODAY ... he or she will be
one of those charming young people who may have a late start
in life because of a quirk in the nature that requires careful
study and discipline. Lost time will then be easily make up
once the mind is in perfect control.

Wenty Ford gets lauded by his



Richmond Braves manager

CLINT COURTNEY, manager of the Richmond Braves AAA baseball team has a lot of
confidence in the steady performance of Bahamian right-hander Wenty Ford. "That's the thing
about him. He can pitch when he's ahead or when he's behind," said Courtney in a recent
interview with the Sporting News. "I'll tell you this, if my head was going to roll and I needed to
win one game to save my neck, of all the pitchers in the Atlanta organization, I'd have Ford pitch


that one game."

652 FOR 8

OFF ENGLAND
\I)ONON (AP) It was
slaughter in the sunshine
I riday as the West Indians
destroyed any hopes England
had in the third Test match of
getting the visitors out for a
moderate score.
At lunch on the second day
of the last test in the series the
West Indies were on a massive
454 for six wickets, with Gary
Sobers on 90 not out and
Bernard Julien having punched
47 runs in just 50 minutes.
Rohan Kanhai, the overnight
hero, added only one run and
was caught by Tony G(reig off
Bob Willis for 157. But that
loss made no difference to the
West Indians' run machinery
once it got into top gear again.
The English bowlers held the
run rate in check for the first
hour when the West Indians
scored only 37. But Sobers and
Julien really went to town in
the second hour
Sobers, cover driving to
perfection, was at his majestic
hiest
I he West Indians charged on
between lunch and tea with
hot l Sobers and Julien
notching centuries
Sohers reached his 2()th Tlst
match 100. which included 13
fours lie also shared a record
Wcst Indian partnership of 155
with Julien before retiring to
the pavilion undefeated but
offeringng from stomach
trouble.
Julien's century was made in
adventurous style and it was
l(is very first 100 in any class
od cricket
A straight drive by Julien for
tour pushed the West Indies
beyond their previous best
score in England otf 558 set at
Nottingham in 1960.
With the enforced absence
ot Sobers, Keith Boyce joined
Julien and they saw the 600 up
on the scoreboard a rarn
sight in IEngland
A few moments later Boyce
went foi 36 he skied a hall
from Grieg to Underwood to
take the easy chance.
Then to the delight of the
West Indian fans, Sobers
returned to the action with
132 to his name already
Julien hit the next ball for
six. But then fell to (Greig
caught and bowled for 121,
At tea the West Indians were
on a massive 616 for eight,
Sobers reached 150 not out
and the West Indies declared at
652 for eight, leaving England
about I and 1-2 hours to the
close of play on the second day
of the five-day match,

PROSA TO HOLD

FORT UNTIL BOB

LATTER RETURNS
FIVE IIANDI(CAPPER
Valdo I'rosa. overflowing with
confidence, seeks to play a
double role in the first 18 holes
of the Bahamas Golf
Association's final 54-hole
gross best-ball playoff which
will decide the two-man team
to represent the Bahamas at the
"VII International Dominicano
De Golf" to be contested at
the Santo Domingo Country
Golf ('lub during October.
Prosa, who last year along
with Pepi Tirelli represented
the Bahamas at the Dominican
Tournament, found himself
this year paired with his
favourite partner, B.G.A.'s
amateur champion Robert
Slatter. They both held a
second place tie with the Mike
Taylor!/ Jack Moree pair, one
stroke behind Charlie Saunders
and Coins Poitier who led with
a 70.
Saiunders' turning pro made
him ineligible to play in the
amateur tournament, thus


eliminating the leading pair.
This then placed the
Slatter/Prosa duo in a first
place tie. Unfortunately,
Slatter was reportedly away in
Canada and unable to make it
back in time for Saturday's
start.
This makes no difference to
Prosa. lie is willing to hold the
fort with hopes that Slatter
will return on Sunday. "Bob
and I really work together,"
said Prosa. "I don't think they
have a team here than can beat
Bob and myself." Prosa said
that although he teamed up
with other golfers the winning
combination is not there as
when he plays with Slatter.
Going into Saturday's
playoff at the South Ocean
Golf Club the scores are:
R. Slatter-V. Prosa 71
M. Taylor-J. Moree 71
F. Higgs-B. Smith 73
V. Wells-B. Lynch 74
P. Stanham-W. Govan 75
D. Butler-I. Masson 77
J. Duncombe-E. Gibson 77
Z. Stubbs-P. Tirelli 79

Bahamas Wichita squad didn't play



bad ball, but were just outclassed

By OSCAR MILLER
SO THE BAHAMAS AFFAIR in the 39th National Baseball Congress Tournament is all over
with a dejected Wichita squad silently bowing out of the annual baseball festival without a stir.


From the team's
performance no one would
have known the Bahamas was
represented at the tourney
unless eyes were cast on our
colourful banner fluttering in
the steady 20 m.p.h. Wichita
wind at Lawrence Stadium.
The 1973 Wichita squad left
Nassau riding high on a balloon
that was not filled with air but
rather high hopes, great
expectations and the positive
notion of emulating past
performances.
However, this balloon was
quickly deflated when the
squad dropped their first two
games and thus were
eliminated from the double
defeat classic tourney.
The Bahamas last Thursday
night was overpowered by a
strong Calgary Giants (8-2) in
their first contest and then
bowed out Sunday afternoon
to a somewhat weaker Gretna
Louisiana Stars 9-7.
The team followed their
basic game plan of the hit and
run play particularly in the
second match when perfect
execution of that play yielded
two big runs early in the
contest for the Bahamas.
The Bahamas could have
very well used clutch hits from
Turner and lHuyler who both
failed to deliver with the bases
loaded in the seventh inning of
the first game and one from
centerfielder Fddie Ford who
grounded out to end the
seventh inning in the second
game again with the bases
loaded.
GOOD AT BAT
Other than these exceptions
the hitting came through with
the team finishing with a
respectable team batting
average of .420.
The defense was solid other
than two infield errors by
shortstop Randy Rodgers, one
by second baseman Roosevelt
Turner and another by first
baseman Lester Gardiner. Two
of these miscues blossomed
into runs for the opponents.
Thus it was nothing else but
the pitching that caved in
during the entire episode in
Wichita.
BBA acting president Rudy
Penn who accompanied the
team to Wichita said that the
team's overall performance was
good but obviously the
pitching failed.
"Pitching was definitely the
downfall in Wichita. As far as I
am concerned our pitching
should have conc through, and
why it didn't still puzzles me.
"I can clearly recall how
nervous and tense some of the
relief pitchers were when they
were called on in some key
situations in our two
game-stand," Penn said.
I1SMAL PITCHING
Adrian Rodgers, pitching
coach for this year's squad,
shares the opinion of many in
that our pitching was a dismal
failure.
"the pitching was lousy. If
we had better pitching we
would have certainly won a
game or two in the
tournament.
"On the whole the team did
well but it was just that our
pitching failed when it should
have come through. In both
our games our pitchers wete
kind of tight and a bit shaky,"
he said.
Rodgers said that because
the pitchers were not relaxed
this in tin caused most of
them to lose their
concentration "and once you
lose you concentration you
start to give up home runs and
a lot of walks."
"I tried to stress to the
pitchers the importance of
keeping the ball down. In
places like Wichita once you
get pitches up high batters will
hit the long ball off you."
Veteran right-hander Henry
Williams who posted a 15-3
record this season started the
mound chores for the Bahamas
in the first game against the


Calgary Giants.
SHAKEN-UP
But Williams was shaken up
early in the contest when
lead-off batter Jesse Chavez
drilled a long home run to right
field to give the Giants a quick
1-0 lead.
Williams weathered a two
run second and proceeded until
the fifth when he was again
tagged for a two run homer by
second baseman Papworth.
With the score 5-0 manager
Eugene Simon yanked Williams
and brought in a reliable
Frankine Sweeting to do the
relief job. Sweeting hurled a
complete inning allowing no
runs, on no hits and walked
only one batter.


Sweeting was pulled for a
pinch hitter in the seventh and
when the Bahamas took the
field in the bottom half of that
frame left hander Larry
Turnquest took over the
mound duties.
But Tumnquest looked more
like a hall factory in the 2/3 of
the inning tie worked giving up
four v,aIlks, two of which
forced in runs; is the bases were
loaded.
The three Calgary runs in
the seventh ended the game
under t hie Tournament's
six-run lead rule with the local
side loosing 8-2.
A big healthll Dn laylor,
who posted a 14-3 seasonal
record started the second
game. Taylor was quite stingy
to tile (;retna Louisiana Stars
during the first two frames, but
the third inning was entirely
another story.
T(1 KIILRS IlIT
Four hits, a sacrifice fly and
a home run chased Taylor from
the mound as he just simply
failed to protect a Bahamas
four run lead.
F ra nkie "Cinderella"
Sweeting worked the fourth
and fifth frames hut there was
nothing sweet about his
performance as the Stars
pounded him for three runs on
four hits.
Righthandcr Sherwin Taylor
came in to aid Sweeting4 in the
fifth but he only added to the
Bahamas troubles when lie
walked two batters.
Ilenry Williams then came ini
to relieve Taylor and finally
got the local side out of the
terrible nightmare. Williams in
the 2-2/3 innings he worked
blanked the Stars.
Williams was pulled for
pinch hitter Lester Gardiner in
the top half of the eighth and
then in a somewhat surprising
appearance Fddie Ford took
over the pitching in the bottom
half of the eighth.
In the lone inning hie worked
Ford gave up one run on one


hit but that final run was one
of insurance as Gretna had
already sealed victory from the
seventh.
POOR MOVES
All the players that were
contacted unanimously agreed
that pitching was the downfall
of this year's squad but in the
same breath they talked about
a number of poor managerial
moves that were made on the
part of manager Eugene Simon.
However, despite this and
other problems the team
encountered, pitching still
became and still is the
sacrificial lamb of the '73
Wichita squad.
Veteran hurler Bertie
Murray who had very little
action during the two games
said that many of the local
pitchers encountered problems
with the mound at Lawrence
Stadium.
"The mound at Lawrence
Stadium is quite different from
our mound here at the Sports
Center in that the fall-off is
very quick. Our mound at
home has a longer slope thus
allowing our pitchers a
smoother fall-off.
"Many of our pitchers were
unaware of this and as a result
their basic pitching styles were
affected," Murray said.
Probably one member of the
team summed up the whole
Wichita affair when he said: "It
is not so much that the
Bahamas did not play well in
Wichita, but rather we were
badly outclassed.
"Wichita has changed from
the fun and frolic type
tournament it used to be in
years gone by. Today the NBC
Tournament is used as a
stepping stone for a whole new
breed of young ball players,
particularly the Collegian, to
break into the major league."
The Tribune was unable to
get in touch with manager
Eugene Simon who has got
away from it all by taking a
lengthy vacation from work.
