By ETIENNE DUPUCH
The first moiloured student to enrol at St. John's University in
Minnesota arrived at the school in 1927, shortly ahead of me. His
name was Jones and he came from Washington.
Jones was a loner. Hie didn't make friends with anyone. I tried
to cultivate him but he shied away from me. After a short stay he
just dropped out one day.
The Priests were so concerned about losing Jones that I asked
one of them the reason. lie told me that they had had special
instructions from Rome to pay special attention to the education
of the dark races.
"The Holy Father," he said, "is convinced that the seat of
power is going to mriove to the dark races. He is not concerned as
.o who rules the world but he wants to make certain that,
whoever rules, is prepared for the responsibility and that
Christianity is well established among them."
Did the IHoly Father have Africa, India, Indonesia, Japan or
China in mind when he arrived at that conclusion?
That he was right in this long-range forecast becomes daily
more and more apparent.
The E-uropean democracies and those with a European
background are sick, maybe dying as they are rocked by
scandal after scandal.
The English Civil Service continues to be above reproach. In
the faded days of Empire the British Colonial Service was perhaps
the most remarkable human organization in recorded history. As
I have said in this column on more than one occasion, I have
never heard of a single case of corruption and bribery in this vast
Because it was human, there must have been lapses of some
kind but never of a nature to cause a serious scandal.
Today there are scandals in public life in England. The first big
one was the Profumno affair ten years ago. That brought down the
Macmillan government. And this year the Lord Lambert and Lord
Jellicoe affairs have rocked the nation.
These affairs arose from involvement by these men with
common prostitutes. It has been truthfully stated that, down
through the ages, men in prominent positions have had affairs
with sweethearts. Today these affairs cause concern because of
the sensitive situation that has developed around vital military
and other secrets.
Apart from every other consideration, I feel that the fact that
shocked most people is that these men, occupying top positions
in the political and social life of the country, should seek comfort
in the bed of common prostitutes.
And. of course, I was shocked by the hypocrisy I observed in
the Hiouse of Lords during the debate on the second reading of
the Bahamas Independence Bill.
For a time it seemed that the Pope's forecast of the shift in
power was far away. America emerged from the second World
War as the dominant military power.
But her foreign policy has been so immature that she has kept
slipping back as Communist Russia gained strength Now it seems
that China is a likely prospect, especially if her recent alliance
with Japan holds fast.
For the first time since Am ierica gained a dominant place in the
world, it looked like President N ixon might pull the nation out of
the rut by his successful approach to China and Russia that ended
the Cold War between East and West.
But in the midst of this triumph he has been struck low. Today
the veneer has been torn off American society to expose a nation
that is sick to the core.
The president and his personal staff, the vice president,
ex-governors, politicians, senior judges, mayors, councilmen, the
famed F.B.I. ... just about every level of government in the nation
today ... from the top to the bottom ... is under investigation for
dishonesty in its various forms ... such as housebreaking, bugging,
bribery and corruption. The police departments of the nation
have been long under suspicion. There have been some terrible
exposures about the police.
This nation is sick. We can only pray that, as a result of this
purging, it may be purified and get a new start up the ladder of
life. But it's going to be a long, hard climb. When it is recalled
that a member of the Mafia has boasted that this crime
organization exists merely because governors, politicians and
judges are so easily corrupted.
The democracies, moreover, are being torn apart by labour
strikes. The time will come when they will not be able to
cotnpete with China.
And our little Bahamas has been infected by the American
Worst feature of the situation in the Bahamas is the fact that
Bahamian clergymen have remained silent ... they have even
sought government favour ... in the face of persecution of
innocent people by a power dunk political group.
There is cause for concern when a government and politicians
and lawyers and others near to the heart of human life in a nation
appear to have lost all sense of direction ... but when Christian
leadership fail a people, it beconrs clear that the nation has
reached rock bottom and there is no hope for the future without
a long period of purging.
This is the situation as I see it in the Bahamas today.
But let us get back to a discussion of human movements on the
Recently I wrote an article in which I pointed out that Chin
and Russia were moving into areas vacated by Britain.
Since writing that article it has been announced that Barbados
has forged an agricultural agreement with China. And Guyana has
signed an air and agricultural agreement with Cuba in which Cuba
agrees to aid the former British colony. Trinidad has also signed
an air agreement with Cuba.
I don't suppose I should have been surprised by this news but

Recently I told you about a young woman I knew in the

been living in Barbados for a long time. Recently I was told that
they were planning to leave Barbados because life in that island
had changed beyond recognition.

When my wife and I were in Africa five years ago, Chinese were
moving into some areas of the Dark Continent then.
By nature the African doesn't like work. lie likes fun and

cannot think of any people who work as hard as the Chinese.
Dr. Banda, dictator of the state of Malawi, realizes this fact and
so he brought Chinese families in to Malawi and gave them stakes
of land near his own farmers, so that they could teach the African

While China is spreading her influence far and wide her former
enemy and new ally Japan has established herself among the most
important nations in Europe ... notably Germany, of all places!
And so ... don't be surprised if the seat of world power moves
to the Orient.
I want to make it clear that I love the Chinese people. Some of
my best friends are Chinese. These people are not only clever but
they possess a quality of loyalty that is not common among
western peoples today.
But in a world dominated by a Communist nation be it
China or Russia our Christian society might be in peril.
Even though the Pope forecast a change in the power structure,
I don't think Christianity would have a chance of breaking
through in an Anti-Christ Communist society.
And so ... every time Christian leaders such as is happening
in the Bahamas today fail in their duty to stand up for
Christian practices in a community, the world inches nearer to
the day of the Anti-Christ.

FOOTNOTE TO HISTORY: At this time it might be helpful
if sad to recall some of the mistakes made by religious leaders
in our own lifetime. In all these cases they allowed themselves to
be influenced by nationalist and racist propaganda.
Some church leaders in Catholic Italy supported Mussolini's
invasion of defenceless Ethiopia. I recall pictures of priests
blessing Italian troops as they marched away to this wicked war.
This terrible affair was a prelude to World War II.
In the early days of Naziism many church leaders in Protestant
Germany applauded the Fuehrer. The time came when they
wanted to protest against his tyranny but by then he had the
church and everything else in Germany by the throat. And they
Naziism was the final step into the Second World War. This war
released Communism as a world force that has outlawed
Christianity over wide areas of the earth ... and may produce the
At the height of his adventure into folly in the Bahamas
ex-Catholic Priest Charles Coakley resented my criticism of his
activities. He pointed out that he was an educated man with a
degree in Sociology. He seemed to think that this was important.
Today the people of the world are not concerned with
Theology or Sociology or any other kind of "ology". What the
world needs is just ordinary simple Christianity. Sociology is a
lost cause, even in a Priest, if he isn't first of all a solid Christian.
Remember ... Peter was a humble, unschooled fisherman.
In the same way that a Mafia chieftain could boast that this
crime syndicate thrives because of corruptible governors,
politicians, judges and policemen, Communism is on the march
because Christian leaders too often fail to be concerned about
man's inhumanity to man".
In the same way the PLP is the bastard child of bad politicians
in the UBP ... infidels are often the result of poor example by
I took pride in Charles Coakley and Bonaventure Dean when
they were studying for the Priesthood at St. John's Abbey. They
were brilliant students. During a visit to St. John's Abbey I told
them that I expected one of them to be the next Catholic Bishop
of Nassau. Both of these men showed brilliance after being
ordained to the Priesthood. But, alas, they apparently had it all in
the head and not enough in their hearts to sustain them during an
emotional period in the community. As a result, they, and others
like them, lost their way in the Church and returned to the world.
But what about Bahamian clergy of all denominations who still
wear the cloth? Are most of them still worshipping a God of
Blackness tainted with chips of the Golden Calf?
If so, they have betrayed the humble Christ of love who shed
his blood on Calvary; if not, isn't it about time they got together
and sorted some important questions out so they might discover
some form of positive direction before Christianity becomes a
mere sham and mockery among the Bahamian people?

And she said she will pursue her

|Bushy toupee covers up
DEAR ABBY: I am serious about a young man I've
been dating for nearly a year. Since we've been dating he
has been slowly losing his hair. He is far from bald, Abby.
His hairline IS receding a little, and he's getting a bit thin
on top, but he certainly doesn't give the impression of
being bald. I knew he was rather self-conscious about it,
but I never realized how much until last evening when he
showed up in a full toupee! I nearly fell over.
It is so full and unnatural looking it looks ridiculous. He
thinks it looks great, and it has given him so much confi-
dence, I hate to tell him the truth. But I want the old HIM
back. What should I do? MISSING HIM
DEAR MISSING: I don't care if a man wears a rug he
can fly to Bagdad on, If HE thinks it looks great and it has
restored his confidence, keep quiet. In time, you might
suggest he have it "trimmed" a bit-or replaced with a
more hatural-looking one. But for the moment, don't under-
mine his confidence.
DEAR ABBY: Something bothers me. Whenever I
clean out my closets and drawers I have a lot of clothes,
shoes, purses, and lingerie I want to discard because I
know I'll never wear them again, but I honestly don't know
what to do with them. I hate to throw them away so I just
pack them in boxes and store them in the attic. Most things
are good as new. Some I hardly wore--they are "mistakes"
I made by buying them.
I don't want to offer them to friends, relatives, or
neighbors because I don't want them to think I think they
are "in need." Don't recommend Goodwill or The Salvation
Army. I want to give my things away on a more personal
I'd like to hand them over to the people who can use
them so I will feel that I have been personally charitable.
Can you help me? THINGS TO GIVE
DEAR THINGS: You don't say how old you are, or
what size you are, but every church auxiliary is aware of
"needy" families who could use whatever you have to give.
[So is your local County Welfare Department. | Trust their
judgment to give your things "directly" to needy people,
and forego the satisfaction of personally handing it to one

the man she loves
Besides this, I have learned that I am not the only one in
my little world who wants a better life for himself. But
some inmates are not yet awake to the fact that even in
the worst of prisons there are programs for education and
improvement for those who want them. I have been in the
worst of prisons, and I found that as long as I behaved
myself and respected the rules, I was fairly treated.
Much to my amazement, I got less respect from some
of my fellow inmates! These are the same guys who spoke
of getting it together and being concerned for one another.
Some who called for brotherhood, and being treated like
men-not animals, forgot what being a man was when it
came to riots-and I've been in several. I never was re-
sponsible for any of the uprisings in prisons, but I do know
that most of them are lead into a blank wall!

we review Goombay &
the image we are giving others
By DAPHNE WALLACE WHITFIELD
AS GOOMBAY SUMMER '73 APPROACHES ITS end now would seem to be the appropriate time to assess its value, not only in
monetary, but also in human terms.
It is a fact of life in the
Bahamas that we are
dependent economically on the
tourist trade but there are
other facets that are equally
important as dollars and cents
I mentioned last week the
embarrassment of the tourist
and he is certainly not up-tight
of the explicit sexual
motions of some of the
I also heard from a high
school counsellor of the
increase of pregnancies among
young Bahamian school girls
after previous goombay
summers. These I have been led
to believe are not girls that lack
parental supervision. In fact
reportedly when questioned
what they did during the
summer some replied that they
only went to church and to the
goombay summer dancing on
the streets. It appeared that the
parents were under the
impression that their daughters
were somehow protected
because it was a
Of' course, I am not
suggesting that the government
provide chaperones for all the
young girls that attend the
night time events. This is the
responsibility of the parents.
But high school girls getting
pregnant is neither salutary to
them nor to the country. It
might be an idea if the Ministry
of Tourism and the Ministry of
Education and Culture and the
Ministry of Welfare join forces
to review next year's event
with the following questions
(a) what sort of image are we
projecting of ourselves in
our goombay dancing on
Bay Street? If this image is
not one we can be proud
of what form can the
revelry take that would
put us in a light in which
we'd be proud to be seen.
(b) how seriously are we
taking our folk music and
dance in ensuring its
professionalism? Of course,
music and dance are
performed to be enjoyed.
Doing your own things :s
good but should not be a
licence for anything goes.
(c) Is the form that goombay
summer takes having any
bad effects on young
people? If so how can this
throughout Goombay Summer
have been designated
The music one hears at these
night spots is mostly Goombay
or Calypso the two most
common forms in the islands.
In this column I have discussed
goombay ad infinitum
some would say ad nauseam!
This week let us examine
In "West Indian Scenes" by
Helen Cameron Gordon,
F.R G.S. (Lady Russell):-
"The origin of this word has
puzzled many inquiring minds
and the idea of its derivation
from the Greek goddess or the
Greek Island may be discarded.
("Calypso" is a name borne by
several familiar personages in
mythology, particularly by the
nymph who held Ulysses or
Odysseus captive in her native
land). It is peculiar to Trinidad.
Residents here of many years
recall the arrival in the island in
past days from Curacao of a
lady singer of easy virtue
named Calypso (Creole
Calypso but more commonly
known as Bim-Bim.) Her songs
were pronouncedly risque:
neither she nor they were
mentioned in polite society ....
it seems probable that the
lady's songs were called by her
name and by association of
ideas the name became
adopted for carnival
improvisations, some of which
are still regrettably improper.
"These carnivals were a
golden opportunity for airing
grievances .... One was a song
on the treasury fire in which
a $200,000 loss was
unaccounted for by the

and cleverly improvised by the

AMERICANS VOLUNTEER FOR
SERVICE IN CAMBODIA
WASHINGTON (AP)- The
American Security Council, a
private anti-Communist group, said
Wednesday the Cambodian embassy
here has been getting dozens of
inquiries a week from
ex-servicemen who want to
volunteer for duty in Cambodia to
The Council said that since 1970
more than 200 American veterans
have contacted the embassy asking
for information about how they
might join up. It said that in the
past few months, some 50 such
inquiries were received.
The would-be applicants are told
that the Cambodian government
cannot accept volunteer forces.
A Benedictine monk, a
Trinidadinan named Dom
Basil, wrote in November 1942
that Calypso is from the word
Carrousseaux, French patois
spoken in Trinidad, with the
accent on the last syllable.
Africans dropped the Irench
rolling "r" to something
smoother. Thus Carisseaux
became Calisseaux, then Caliso
English first injected the "P".
To support his theory Dom
Basil points out that the
crowds still shout "riso" or
"rouso" at particularly good
Mrs. Pyfrom provided me
with the results of her research
in the library of Congress on
calypso the folk song of
Calypso singing is essentially
an impromtu art. The rhythm
is 2/4 and 4/4; 3/4 or 6/4.
It is strictly monotonous
and charged with the
emotional appeal always
evident in African-inspired
Each repetition offers great
variety for syncopation.
A Calypsonian sings each
verse and the audience the
chorus. If he is quick-witted he
improvises the next verse while
the chorus is being sung. This
style of singing is often used to
exchange gossip of the day,
such as the Combites in Haiti.

WHAT'S OUT THERE?
Out in the Family Islands. The third largest barrier reef in the world is off
Andros. There's a candy-striped lighthouse to climb to the top of in Abaco.
And a mile-long cave to climb to the bottom of at Hatchet Bay on Eleuthera.
The golf course on Great Harbour Cay is considered one of the best in the
world. And no trip to Exuma is complete without a picnic on Stocking Island.
Find out for yourself how interesting and entertaining your country is.
Bahamasair and the Bahama Out Island Association have put together a Dis-
covery Holiday to many of the Family Islands. From now until October 31st,
you'll get 20% off on your airline fare and 20% off on your hotel rate.

GENERAL TENDENCIES: You are winding up

much distance you have covered and be aware of the
long-range goals still to be realized

others in a.m., but tonight get busy working on that new plan
of importance to you. Make decisions early. Forget the
frivolous for the time being
TAURUS (Apr. 20 to May 20) Study matters at home that
need handling Take action on them later in the day. Show
generosity at home before you leave for amusements in the
evening. A more wide-awake attitude is important.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 21) Make the right contacts for
business matters during day, then devote yourself tonight to
kin, home. Shop early and buy that new gadget that lightens
MOON CHILDREN (June 22 to July 21) Clear up money
matters in a m., but later keep those appointments you have
made that are vital to your welfare. Sit down with that adviser
who has good ideas to give you. Become more affluent in the
LEO (July 22 to Aug 21) You can make real progress
toward personal aims during morning, but economize later and
build up a reserve. Handle important money matters. Morning
is best time to be with friends
VIRGO (Aug. 22 to Sept. 22) Making plans quietly in a.m.

who has been very generous to you in a.m. Then get into the
work that is awaiting your attention. Plan to keep some
promises you have made Arrange something nice socially for
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Morning is the best time to
handle that outside affair of a public nature and get it done
right. Don't neglect that credit matter of importance. Evening
is best for social fun with groups.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You can put those
new ideas across well in the a.m., then handle responsibilities
pressuring you. Don't forget to answer that important letter.
Get some civic project in order.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan. 20) Improve your financial
and association matters in the a m. Then be sure to get
important bills paid. Your intuition leads you rightly where
some new project is concerned. Enjoy new kind of recreation
later in the day, p.m.

arrangements with a partner and can now delve into the actual
work connected therewith. Handle those civic matters quickly
and well Devote yourself to the one you love tonight.

" So that's why I came to see you, Miss
Samantha." 'Rupert ends his story and the
old lady gazes at him in concern. Dear me,
your friend must have bought one of my
helpers named Benjy," she says. "You see,
some of them live in little villages, but
others like Benjy are my scouts and send me
news about birthdays." She leads Rupert to
one of the tiny houses. Benjy cannot stay
with your friend," she smiles, so we must
replace him. Please look inside, little bear."
Rupert obeys and as he opens the front of
the house he gasps: "Why, it's filled with
dolls-just dolls, not helpers I "

South Ocean with a smooth 296 following four rounds of golf to-
win the Bahamas Golf Association's gross best-ball championship.
the final rounds of which
Both players are expected to
represent the Bahamas in the

Country Golf Club.
It was no easy win for the
Higgs/Smith pair though as
Freeporters lan Marshall and
Vernon Wells came thr, .igh

round placing them in second
place one stroke behind with a
total score of 297. The young

A ticklish situation
developed around the final
nine holes when Wells and
Marshall had finished and made
known their position to the
rest of the field which then
consisted of tliggs/Smith and
Taylor/Moree in a foursome.
Pressure ball was the game
from then on and any miscue
by the then leaders, Higgs and
Smith, might have ended either
in a three way tie or with
Marshall and Wells in first.
Going into the final eighteen
of 36 holes played yesterday,
Moree and Taylor pinched a
two stroke lead over Higgs and
Smith while leading Marshall
and Wells by six strokes.
Moree and Taylor's first
setback came on the 10th and

up bogeys. Higgs parred the
tenth and Smith the llth
