Pindling 'categorically'



denies $1m. payment



for casino bid report

PRIME MINISTER LYNDEN PINDLING yesterday
categorically denied he had been given $1 million by gambler
Mike McLaney for a casino licence and labelled the allegation as
"Malicious" and "a total and complete fabrication."


In a statement from New York
Mr. Pindling said that:
"Ir view of certain
testimony reportedlyy given
before a Senate Commission in
\Washington on Tuesday by a
Mr. Louis P. Mastriana and,
subseq u ent Ivly given
prominence in newspapers
having national and
international circulation, as
S" : and TV
broadcasts alleging that a
contribution of one million
dollars had been made to grant
a gambling casino license to
Mr. Mike McLaney, I must take
this opportunity to
categorically deny this
malicious allegation as a total
and complete fabrication.
"I must point out that inm
1966, when my party was in
opposition, Mr. Mel aney made
a voluntary contribution by
way of transportation for some
of the candidates who were
contesting seats in the General
I elections of January, 1967. At
no time, however, did Mr.
McLaney give me money, andl
at no time did I make any
promise to Mr. McLaney, or
anyone connected with him,
that he would, or even could
receive a gambling casino
license as reward for his
voluntary contribution.
"My party won those
elections and formed a
governmentt Later in 1967, a
Royal commissionn was
appointed at the instigation of
the Bahamas Government to
enquire into all aspects of
gambling in the Bahamas and
to determine, among other
things, it there were any
undesirable foreign influence at
work in thie Bahamas. Mr.
McLaney gave evidence before
the Commission and. on oath,
stated his contribution to be
worth S60,000.
"In its report, the Royal
Commission concluded, in
part, that:
"We regard Mr. McLaney as
a thoroughly dangerous person
who is likely to do nothing but
harm to the Bahamras.
"It was not long afterwards
that other facts were brought
to the attention of the
Bahamas Immi great ion
Department. As a consequence
of those developments, Mr.
McLaney was declared a
'prohibited immigrant' by the
Bahamas Government.
"About the same timnle, the
Progressive liberal Party had
concluded that it was in the
best interests of the Bahamas
and the good reputation of the
party to return to Mr.
McLaney any contribution he
had made on behalf of the
party during the elections of
1967. Sixty thousand dollars
were borrowed by my party
from a bank and paid to Mr.
McLaney. The bank loan was
repaid by systematic monthly
reductions from the salaries of
our members of Parliament.
Mr. McLaney accepted the
$60,000. He has not been
heard from since."

NO CANISTERS

SIGHTED SO FAR
NONE of the cannisters of
poisonous chemicals released in
the Gulf of Mexico last month
have been sighted in the
Bahamas so far, but the
Bahamas Air Sea Rescue
Association still urges
P'hala" s -' t '
look-out.
About 390 blue cannisters
two feet high and 16 inches in
diameter containing sodium
cyanide and potassium cyanide
were dumped into the Gulf
when two ships collided
August 15.
Although the collision took
place some 600 miles west of
Nassau, the U.S. Coast Guard
has warned that the cannisters
"could be anywhere" as a
result of ocean currents and of
the fact that Hurricane Delia
passed near the collision site on
August 25.
Anyone sighting any of the
cannisters is warned not to
touch them, but to notify
BASRA, the Coast Guard or
the police immediately.

reported.
Mr. McLaney said he was
mad at Mr. Pindling for
reneging on the alleged
promise, but not mad enough
to hire someone to kill the
Prime Minister
Mr. Pindling has
categorically denied that he
ever made such a promise.
Convicted stock swindle
Louis P. Mastriana told a U.S
Senate subcommittee on
Tuesday that McLaney
angered because he failed to
get a Bahamian gambling
licence after giving Sl million
to the PLP campaign, in 1968
offered him (Mastriana)
$100,000 to assassinate Mr.
Pindling.
The swindler said he turned
the offer down because he
would not have been able to
escape after the killing.
Mr. Pindling, responding to
Mastriana's testimony, has
"categorically" denied the
convict's claims. (*SEE
STORY THIS PAGE)
McLaney, who runs the
Hlaitian Tourist and Economic
Centre in Miami, called a press
conference in Miami yesterday
to deny taking part in any plot
to kill Mr. Pindling.
TWO PROMISES
According to the Herald,
"he said that in return for
paying perhaps as much as
$80,000 to charter 'three
planes, two helicopters and
two boats' for Pindling's
campaign, and furnishing
advertising materials, Pindling
made two promises.
"One was to hire British and
American 'executive assistants'
as aides to Cabinet Ministers
who presumably would be
inexperienced at running a
government,' the Herald
continued. M,.LjneVy insisted
he would not have been one of
those aides.
"The other promise was to
let McLaney take over
Bahamian gambling casinos in
exchange for 50 percent of the
profits."
McLaney said at the press
conference that he was repaid
$60,000 by the PLP.
Mr. Pindling in evidence
before the Commission of
Inquiry into Gambling denied
that McLaney ever made a
party contribution as high as
$60.000
The Herald report went on:
"At any rate, McLaney said,
he let Pindling know he was
upset about his failure to
obtain the gambling
concessions."
The Herald reported that
"annoyed as he was, McLaney
insisted, he never thought of
having Pindling murdered. 'I
don't think Pindling's the type
of person anyone would think
about getting rid of.' McLaney
said."
The 1968 Gambling
Commission of Inquiry
reported that McLaney had
arranged for the use use by the
PLP of one helicopter, two
airplanes and one power boat.
In addition, the report said, a
private aircraft was "loaned"
to Mr. Pindling by a client,
Lewis Colasurdo of New York,
free of charge for a month.
HELPED PLP
"By the time he appeared
before our Commission," the
report said, "Mr. Pindling had
become Premier.The estimated
cost of the above forms of
transportaioon was given by
him as approximately $25,000;
Mr. McLaney told us it was
about $60,000, but added that
the plane referred to by the
Premier as being loaned free by
Mr. Colasurdo was in fact
billed to and paid for by Mr.
McLaney, thereby accounting
for the difference."
The report said Mr. Pindling


"was adamant that there was
no undertaking given either by
himself or other party
members for any concession,
either then cr subsequent, to
Mr. McLaney or his associates.
"He told us he believed Mr.
McLaney's interest was solely
that he wanted to advise the
Government on its future
policy on gambling.
'KINDNESS' TALK
"Mr. McLaney himself.
when he came before us,
avoided numerous questions
that discussions with the
Premier had included
arrangements for a gambling
licence and insisted that he
only wanted to be of service to
the government and make
some money for himself,
adding 'kindness brings back
kindness.'
The Commission report
went on to say during "one of
his later meetings" with Mr.
Pindling and some of his
ministers, McLaney "pointedly
left on the table when he
departed without
mentioning it a draft of a bill
entitled 'an Act Empowering
the Regulation of Gambling
and Games of Chance in the
Islands of the Bahamas.' We
were informed of this in
evidence by Mr. Wallace
Whitfield, Minister of Works,
who produced the draft. He
was not able to tell us who
drew it up, but it was laid out
in pseudo-legal style."
The report said that the
draft bill empowered the
Tourism Ministry "to designate
a representative to be in charge
of all gambling enterprises in
the Bahamas.
DANGEROUS
"Neither the Premier nor the
Commission was left in any
quandry as to who the
representative was intended to
be.
"The Premier, while
admitting the indebtedness of
his party, told us that.
subsequent to the election, he
had made a number of inquires
about Mr. McLaney which had
convinced him, with hindsight,
that he and his party would be
ill-advised to continue their
association with him.
"On the evidence of his past
activities, which we heard in
detail from the Commissioner
of Police, we formed the
opinion that Mr. McLaney was
an unscrupulous individual
who was playing on the
worldly experience of the
Premier and the PLP with the
ainm of manoeuvring them into
a position whereby they would
feel obliged to 'do a del '
There is little doubt that the
deal would have involved some
sort of gambling concession.
"We regard Mr. McLaney
and as a thoroughly dangerous
person who is likely to do
nothing but harm to the
Bahamas," the Commission
said.

By SIDNEY DORSETT
SOLICITOR GENERAL T. LANGTON HILTON, addressing
the Andrea Spencer kidnap jury this morning said that fonner
Freeport vice squad chief Leroy N. McLean and police corporal
Spurgeon Dames had failed to produce an alibi against charges
and that the guilty mind of McLean caused him to make an
unsolicited statement about the offence during a police raid of his


apartment.
Mr. Hilton, who yesterday
said that criminals are
becoming more sophisticated
now while reading the text
of a ransom note demanding
$250,000 to support a
revolution in Cuba spent
most of this morning attacking
evidence given by the defence.
McLean, expected to begin
his address to the jury
tomorrow,. is charged jointly
with Dames of the February 15
kidnapping of Andrea
Spencer, 4',-, who was snatched
from her mother's arms by two
masked gunmen, after they had
broken into the home of
( anadian banker Robert F.
Spencer.
They pleaded not guilty to
the charge and fou.r others

Mr. Hilton pointed out that

constitution to embrace
workers in a wide range of
industries, and Mr. Parker had
registered the new constitution
on July 14 last year.
In his Nov. 17 letter the
Registrar told the union to
consider amending the
constitution to conform with
the provisions of the Industrial
Relations Act, or face
cancellation of the registration.
The union ignored the
warning and M r. Smith wrote
the union to remind it of the
earlier letter, and requesting a
reply by Sept. 1 0.
Mr Whitfield's reply on
behalf of the union noted that
"the points raised in both these
letters appear to be concerned
with the category of worker
who is entitled to become a
member of the union."
lie said the Registrar's letter
"seems to imply that workers
w ho are eligible for
membership of one lawfully
registered and long established
union may not be eligible to
become a member of another
lawfully registered union, and
he cites as examples
construction workers
transport workers, hotel
workers and lon gshore men.
"The Industrial Relations
Act is against him in this.
Section 40(5) contemplates
that there may well be workers
in a particular field belonging
to one or more trade unions,
and provides the machinery by
which the Minister is to
determine whether the union
making the claini or any other
union is to be recognized as the
bargaining agent."
Mr. Whitfield noted that
while Mr. Parker was
threatening cancellation on the
ground that registration was
"obtained by rn mistake "
However, "'the Registrar
does not state the acts or by
whom they were done which
constitute the mistake."
lie noted further that Mr.
Parker had written "it is now
my view that the amended
constitution of your union
contravenes the rules for the
registration of trade unions."
"That." Mr. Whitfield said,
"is an entirely different
proposition from the one
earlier stated and is equally
without merit These (the
regulations) are considerations
which the Registrar of Trade
Unions must have taken at the
time the application for
registration was made, and
such a threat would now be
met by the provisions
contained in Section 12 of thp
Industrial Relat ions Act."
Section 12 of the Act
provides that on registering a
union the Registrar shall issue a
certificate of registration
"which certificate, unless the
registration of the union is
proved to have been cancelled,
shall be conclusive evidence
that the provisions of this Act
and of any regulations made
thereunder with respect to
registration have been
complied with."
Mr. Whitfield's letter went
on to declare that "I have been
unable on my examination of
the said constitution and the
Industrial Relations Act to see
in which respects the said
constitution infringes the said
Act and would be grateful for
the Registrar to point out the
specific infringements of the
"Any require nient to amend
the constitution would be a
matter for the workers to deal
with under their constitution.
The Ministry is not to concern
itself at this stage with the
affairs of the workers."

ANNE'S NEW HOME'A SECURITY RISK'
LONDON, SEPT., 20 (AP) Scotland Yard asked Queen Elizabeth II
not to let her daughter, Princess Anne, and her fiance, Capt. Mark Philips.
move into an army-owned mansion when they get married because it is a
security risk, British newspapers reported Thursday.
The Dally Express said the request came after Yard officers visited the
house in the grounds of the Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst. Philips
will be assigned there as an instructor after the November wedding.
A Buckingham Palace spokesman said later, however, "there has been no

of security was now "under discussion."
Press reports said police were "appalled" at the lack of security
precautions at the big house and decided the couple could be easy targets
for snipers, bombers or even snoopers.
The army had offered a 24 hour guard around the mansion, the reports
said. But police did not consider that would be sufficient short of ringig
the building "into a fortress.
The couple have already run into trouble over the house because the'
will only have to pay eight pounds, or 20 dollars a week rent since it is
owned by the army. Critics have charged the couple were getting special
treatment because of Anne's royal blood.
The Queen has the final say on where the couple live and the Fxroress
said she will likely agree to the request from secuirty chiefs. The couple. it
added, will probably be given a house on the Queen's estate at ,indsor
Castle near London.
MINIMUM WAGE BILL VETO IS UPHELD
WASHINGTON (Al') -The U-S louse of Representatives H ednesday
upheld President Nixon's veto of a bill that %would have increased the
minimum wage in the United States to 2.20 dollars an hour next Julv 1.
It was the sixth time this session that Congress has failed to muster the
two-thirds majority required to override a veto.
Nixon said the bill would have increased unemployment in the United
States and added to inflationary pressures. He has asked the Congress to
provide for a more moderate increase in the minimum wage, which is now
1.60 dollars an hour.
SKYLAB 2 GETS INSTRUCTIONS ABOUT RETURN TO EARTH
SPACE CENTRE, HOUSTON (AP) The Skylab 2 astronauts wakened
Wednesday to find that overnight their teleprinter had spit out 50 feet of
paper with instructions from Mission Control, most aimed at bringing them
back to Earth next Tuesday.
"It stretches from the trash airlock to the EVA (extravehicular activity
hatch," remarked Jack R. .ousma as he, Alan I.. Bean and Owen K.
Garriott surveyed the pile of paper.
Mission Control said the teleprinter load, longest yet in the Skylab
programme, contained 34 separate messages and was relayed in sections
through nine different tracking stations. It required 3.1 million computer
data bits to complete.
There were messages relating to experiment plans and schedules, space
station operations and general mission information. Hut the main rcuson
for the length was detailed instructions for deactivating the space station
and for the tricky maneuvers required to bring the astronauts home in the
Apollo ferry ship Tuesday.
Only two of four steering jets on the Apollo are operative, so different
and complex firing techniques will be required.
"It won't be long now," Commander Bean told Mission Control Tuesday
during a discussion of preparations for the end of the 54-da. space trip.
The three astronauts also discussed with around controllers the
complicated plan for deactivating the station shutting off some systems,.
turning others on and stowing equipment in preparation for a visit by the
Skylab 3 crew starting Nov. I 1.
ATTEMPT WAS MADE ON HAILE SELASSIE
BEIRUT, LEBANON, (AP) Haile Selassie's grandson tried to take the
Ethiopian Emperor hostage on an airborne jetliner and force him to
abdicate at gunpoint, the Eritrean Liberation I rouit (I11 ) claimed
Wednesday.
EL' secretary general Osman Sabbi claimed the attempt was made by
Prince Iskandar D)esta, 40, deputy commander of the Ethiopian navy,
during the Emperor's trip home from a three-day visit to West Germany.
During the flight. which left Cologne three hours early reportedly for
security reasons, the pilot of the imperial Hioeing 707 issued a hijack k signal
while over Italy and radioed the Cairo control tower that the aircraft had
been hijacked with a 'very important person aboard."
Italian officials quoted the pilot as telling the control tower at Rome's
Flumicino Airport there was a man in the cabin holding a gun at his head.
The pilot later radioed that "everything was under control on board"
and that he had mistakenly pressed the hijack alarm bui/er.
The plane landed safely at Addis Ababa and reports said the Emperor
left the plane and received the normal welcome home. Sabbi ,mn,,t,-
informants just arrived from the Ethiopian capital as telling him Desta had
been placed under house arrest.

"Don't

This followed testimony by
a convicted stock swindler,
Louis P. Mastriana, Tuesday
that Roosevelt and an
American with gambling
connections had offered him
S 1 00,000 to assassinate
Bahamianr Prime Minister

Mastriana said the offer was

Syrians arrest

16 guerrillas

BEIRUT. LEBANON (AP)
The Syrian government was
reported today to have arrested
16 Al Fatah guerrillas and
restricted Palestinian guerrilla
movements in Syria.
Two French-language
newspapers in Beirut,
Lorient-Le Jour and As Safa,
said the Syrians have closed
guerrilla training bases and
border trails used by Al Fatah
guerrillas to infiltrate supplies
to bases in Lebanon.
The 16 guerrillas were
arrested, the newspaper said,
for distributing Falastin
Al-Th awra, the official
newspaper of Al Fatah, the
largest and best-known
Palestinian guerrilla group.
Prison officials in Jordan
began to release 754 guerrillas
and political prisoners freed
under a general amnesty'
announced yesterday by King
Hussein.


WASHINGTON (AP) A
spokesman for President
Nixon strongly denied today
that the White House is putting
any kind of pressure on Vice
President Spiro T. Agnew to
resign.
Deputy White House press
secretary Gerald L. Warren
labelled as false news reports
that say or hint "a
disposition by the White House
or the people in the
White House to force the
resignation ot the Vice
President, or that the White
House is exerting pressure on
the Vice President to resign" or
that the White House has been
the source of stories that
Agnew was thinking about
resigning.
earlier in the day, Vic Gold,
former press secretary to
Agnew, charged that top White
Louse aides Melvin R. Laird
and Alexander M. Ilaig Jr. were
encouraging rumours and
reports about Agnew's legal
troubles so that stories about
Agnew would overshadow the
Watergate scandal. "This is all
calculated by the White House
to keep the Agnew story
alive," Gold said in an
interview.
I'm blaming the White
House staff at the highest level.
Mr. Hlaig and Mr. Laird.
"It is my contention that
this stuff about the Vice
President is a great distraction
from the Watergate and the
White House is delighted with
it.
ISN'F ITF ODD?
"Isn't it odd that three
weeks ago the country was
talking about the President
resigning and now they're
talking about the Vice
President resigning? Some
people may think that's a
coincidence. Some people
think that storks bring babies.
I'm not that naive."
J. Marsh Thompson,
Agnew's current press
secretary, acknowledged that
certain individuals at the White
House might be encouraging
the current furor over Agnew's
possible resignation, but he
said he thought that anyone
who believed that this reflected
official policy was overreading
the signs.
"Under no circumstances do
we regard it as a conscious
concoction of anybody in the
White House," Thompson said.
"I refuse to believe that it
represents anything close to
official policy. It is rather the
expression of private opinion."
At his daily press briefing,
Warren was asked a number of
questions about Agnew's status
as Vice President. most of
which he turned aside as
inappropriate because of
Agnew's involvement in a
federal investigation of alleged
political graft in Maryland.
Warren did reaffirm that
Nixon stands by his expression
of confidence in Agnew's
performance as Vice President .

Meanwhile, the Denver Post
said that Agnew discussed a
possible resignation in Denver
Aug. 15, but apparently
convinced Republican Party
leaders he intended to remain
in office.


Sweden's new king


the world's youngest


-- and


to become modern monarch
STOCKHOLM (AP) Sweden's young prince took to the
throne Wednesday choosing as his motto "For Sweden with the
time," words underlining the transition for Sweden, from having
the world's oldest to having the world's youngest monarch.


And in a speech after the
succession ceremony he made
it clear that he wants to
become a modern King, in tune
with the times.
Carl Gustaf, 27, succeeded
his grandfather King Gustaf VI
Adolf, who died Saturday aged
90, after a four week fight for
life.
The late King's motto was
"Duty above all."
The succession ceremony
took place in the 600-rooni
palace where the remains of
the old king lay in state. It was
followed with speeches and an
appearance by the new king
before cheering crowds.
Dressed in an admiral's
uniform, Carl Gustaf, who as
C('rown Prince gained a
reputation as a "swinger",
stressed his wish to be an
up-to-date King.
With the dangling chains of
the realm's highest orders
around his neck, the new King
read in a steady voice the
ancient royal oath
administered to him by justice
minister Lennart Geijer of the
Social Democratic government.
The King then announced he


would retain his name Carl
Gustaf without any figure
attached to it and only be
referred to as King of Sweden,
abolishing the ancient title of
"King of Swedes. Goths and
Vens."
The new king, who was one
year old when his father,
Crown Prince Gustaf Adolf
died in an air crash, was
accompanied by his uncle
Prince Bertil. the oldest living
son of King Gustaf Adolf.
The state council at which
the formal succession took
place was opened by Prime
Minister Olof Palme reading
the death certificate of the late
King. Palme's Social
Democrats, who have ruled
Sweden for 41 years and have
long been pledged to abolish
the monarchy, were set back in
Sunday's general election
which ended in a stalemate tie
between the Socialist and
non-Socialist Parliament blocs.
Carl Gustaf, after
commemorating his
grandfather as a man of "rare
spiritual stature" and a royal
paragon, stated that he was
well aware of the winds of
change


country settles down

SANTIAGO, CHILE, SEPT. 20 (AP) Lunchtime crowds gape
at the burned-out Moneda Presidential Palace, workmen plaster
over bullet holes in downtown buildings and squads of
infantrymen bristling with automatic weapons patrol Santiago in
jeeps and trucks.


But a week after the bloody
military uprising that ended
President Salvador Allende's
three-year experiment in
socialism,Santiago and the rest
of Chile appear to be returning
to normal. Narrow sidewalks
are crowded with shoppers.
Streets once again are cluttered
with red and blue buses. But a
curfew at night crimps social
life.


"There haven't been any
pockets of resistance detected
in the last 24 hours," declared
government press secretary
Federico Willoughby on
Wednesday.
Willoughby said Chile's
borders and airports are still
closed to all but foreign
newsmen and those with
special permission to enter or
leave the country.
lie added that some Chileans
are attempting to leave the
country with large amounts of
money as well as valuable art
objects.
Gen. Oscar Bonilla, the new
interior minister, and
education minister Jose
Navarro took 70 newsmen on a
tour Wednesday of a
shantytown on the edge of
Santiago.
The shantytown, one of
dozens thrown up on vacant
land by poor homeless
Chileans, was called Hlo Chi
Minh village and was run by a
Marxist while Allende was in
power. Now it has no name.
WARNING(
The head of Chile's military
Junta said Wednesday that
followers of the late President
are forming guerrilla bands but
he warned them the
government might declare
internal war.
Gen. Augusto Pinochet.
Junta President and army
commander, said in an
interview "in this moment
there are many places where
they are forming guerrilla
units; they are preparing, but
beware, because a declaration
of internal war is possible."
He added that the military
war code provides "the most
severe penalties" and if
necessary it would be applied
"without fear."
Pinochet made the warning
in a conversation with
newsmen of "La Prensa", a
Christian Democrat newspaper
that was permitted to publish
Wednesday for the first time
since the Sept. 11 coup that
ousted Marxist President
Allende.
Allende apparently
committed suicide rather than
resign during the military siege
of the Presidential Palace.
The four-man Junta had
closed nine of Santiago's 11
daily newspapers, saying t;.ey
had "politicized" the country.
Only "El Mercurio" and "La


Tercera de la Hora", the city's
major newspapers, were
permitted to continue
publication after the coup.
Military rule, imposed on
Chile for the first time in many
years, was reflected by the long
lines of young men at barber
shops. There was no junta
decree issued, but patrolling
soldiers made it clear that they
did not like hippy-style hair or
beards.
It had become the style
during Allende's rule for leftist
youths to grow beards and let
their hair grow in imitation of
Fidel Castro's Cuban guerrillas.
One barber shop said it had
a full schedule of appointments
for the rest of the week. The
word also was out that girls
should be seen in skirts and not
slacks.
Fear of undeclared discipline
also brought a plunge in the
prices of many foodstuffs and
other commodities in the
wholesale market.
Merchants who had been
selling under the table at black
market rates lowered their
price tags as much as one hall
or two thirds to comply with
government price ceilings after
rumours swept the city that
three shopowners had been
shot for profiteering.
There apparently was no
truth to the rumours.
The J u n t a announced
Tuesday that 95 persons were
killed and 300 were wounded
in the bloody coup and street
fighting that followed between
military patrols and militant
leftist snipers. Another 4,700
persons were arrested in a vast
roundup conducted by tlhe
military for Communist and
Socialist leaders and so-called
"foreign extremists" who had
entered Chile during Allende's
administration.
Adm. Jose T. Merino Castro,
a member of the Junta, told
newsmen in Valparaiso that the
government was preparing a
"white book" on scandals and
corruptionn in Allende's
government.

LONDON (AP) British college

"She d not remember the

Evans said his daughter was still

"But she is improving every day

In the meantime, Helen is still
physically harrowed by her ordeal.
She sleeps a lot and has difficulty in

The Caribbean pattern


By ETIENNE DUPUCH
CRIME has always been the scourge of Jamaica.
At the time, early in the last century, when Port Royal, then
the capital of the island, was sucked to the bottom of the ocean
by an earthquake and tidal wave, this city had the reputation of
being the wickedestt" spot in the Caribbean.
I was surprised, during my first visit to Kingston over a half
century ago, to find that shops in the city pulled down solid steel
windows and doors at closing time in the afternoon when the city
is completely deserted and visitors are warned that it is not safe
to walk out after dark.
The homes of people living on the outskirts of the city are also
protected by steel bars across their windows as a protection
against burglars.

It is a sad commentary on trends in New Providence today
that, for the first time in the history of this island, householders
are installing steel bars across all openings to their houses as a
result of the great increase in violent crimes here. This unhealthy
condition is something new for the Bahamas.

In Jamaica, with its enormous unemployment problem,
conditions have become steadily worse.
When my wife and I were in Kingston a few months ago we
were amazed by the number of reports in the press and on T.V.
and radio of violent crimes that were committed in the Kingston
area daily.
Worse still, it has been established that Jamaica is a clearing
house for smuggling narcotics into the U.S.
In a move to reduce crime in his country Prime Minister
Manley announced in a T.V. and radio broadcast, new legislative
and security measures l:he proposes to combat crimes of violence,
juvenile crime, and trafficking in hard drugs in Jamaica.

Here are some of the new laws to be proposed to the
Legislature:
*Illegal possession of firearms to be a major indictable offense
with a maximum penalty of 10 years imprisonment at hard
labour.
It will be a criminal offeiise for tile holder of a licensed
firearm to lose it through negligence.
*A special court will be established to deal with all crimes of
violence involving the use of firearms.
*The pushing of hard drugs will be removed from a resident
magistrate'ks urisdictionantd become an indictable offense with a
maximum penalty of life imprisonment.
*A substantial increase in security at airstrips and possible
points of entry for drugs and weapons.
*Intensification and wider deployment of police and military
patrols which have developed "far more effective methods."
*Road blocks will be a regular and permanent feature of these
new security measures.
I agree with Mr. Manley. The only way to reduce crime is to
put certain types of criminals away for a long time.

FOOTNOTE TO IIISTORY: I picked up three interesting
bits in the July issue of the West Indies Chronicle, a monthly
magazine published in London by the West India Committee.
Lntil the House of Coimons passed an Immigration Act a
couple of years ago. ending unobstructed entry of
Commonwealth citizens into Britain, the flow of West Indians
especially Jamaicans to England had taken on flood
proportions.
Ships carrying thousands of West Indian immigrants arrived
frequently at ports in Britain, with the result that England was
experiencing a difficult racial problem.
During my last visit to England I discussed this problem with a
member of the British Government and I was surprised to hear
that West Indians were the greatest problem among the dark races
in Britain. They are apparently more aggressive than the African,
the Indian, the Pakistani or the Mialaysian peoples.
In reply to a question in the Commons by Mr. A. Butler, the
Secretary of State gave recent figures of immigration from
Barbados. Guyana, Jamaica. Trinidad and Tobago, and the
Associated States of Antigua, Dominica, Grenada, St. Kitts,
Nevis, Anguilla, St. Lucia and St. Vincent.
Presumably because Bermuda and the Bahamas have never
contributed to the heavy immigration movement these islands
were not mentioned.
, These figures indicate that the British hImigration Act is being
strictly enforced because with the exception of
Jamaicans the figures show that only a small percentage of
West Indians arriving in England now remain there.
The great surprise conites in the Jamaica figures which show
that more Jamaicans are now leaving Britain than are arriving in
the country.
The report doesn't give any reason for this reversal of
movement by Jamtaicans, nor does it say where they go when
they leave Britain. It is presumed that they go back home to swell
the critical unemployment situation that already exists there.
There is nowhere else for them to go because every country
in the world today maintains a high immigration barrier. Britain


was the last open country where citizens of her former Empire
came and went freely.
It is interesting how this whole situation has changed during
the last half century.
Until I was a young man there were no immigration barriers
anywhere. Passports were not required for travel to any part of
the world.
Millions of people were pouring into the U.S. from Europe to
settle in that rapidly growing country. The time came when
America felt it necessary to restrict this immigration and erected
the first immigration barrier. And this policy has spread as speed
and ease of travel opened the floodgates for human movement
around the world.

business and industrial enterprises in British Commonwealth
countries, has sounded a warning for the Caribbean region.

TOURISM DIRECTOR CHIB

TALKS OF TOURIST NEEDS

A "realistic and practical aim" of a six per cent growth in
tourism was predicted for the Bahamas Monday by Som N. Chib,
Director of Tourism for the Bahamas, who is leaving his post this
year.
Mr. Chib, speaking at the
opening of the annual sales
conference of Bahama Islands
Tourist Office managers at the
Sheraton British Colonial
Hotel, said the task would be
very difficult "because we
can't be sure of the U.S.
economy "
"The U.S. market (for
tourists) is uncertain and
unpredictable,' he pointed
out, "and it depends on how
much disposable income will
be available probably less in
1974."
The travel expert, however,
cited the increasing costs of
travel in Europe, and the SOM N. CHIB
positive press from
Independence as the basis for
his optimism about the growth
rate target of six per cent.

In this column recently I gave you a report on the turtle
indusuy in Grand Cayman where the five specie of turtles are
being bred in captivity for the first time.
I knew that turtles were plentiful in the Bahamas when I was a
child but I didn't realize that it was an important item in the
country's economy as late as the turn of the century.
In his most interesting book Upon These Rocks, a lustori of
the Catholic Church in the Bahamas. the Rev. Cohnan ban,
O.S.B., lists turtling along with sponging, as an impotu.nt
industry during that period.
rhe island of robago is one of the areas where turtles go to ia
their eggs. The beaches of this island are the haunt of the
500 pound fast disappearing leatherback turtle.


Under the caption "Save Our Turtle Campaign". 17wc lest!
Indies Chronicle reports that men wait with machetes until the
turtles come up on the beach lo lay their eggs. They chop off
their fins, turn them over and disembowel them while the\ are
still alive. The meat is then sold at TT $1 a pound.
"In an effort to combat this unspeakable cruelty." the ariclde
reports, "the Tobago branch of the Trinidad and Tobago Societs
for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, has come up with the
idea of rewarding those who protect rather than relv on existing
but unenforceable legislation which punishes the miscreants.
"Thus the branch now offers TT S50 to any person who
protects a turtle while she lays her eggs and sees that she returns
to the sea safely."
tills movement has been very successful in protecting the
mother turtles but the Society must depend on public
subscriptions to finance the rewards. The local appeal has met
with poor response.
The Tobago branch is now appealing for donations from
abroad. Anyone interested in helping to stop this cruel
practice and at the same time promote the revival of this
important item of sea food, should send a donation to the
Trinidad and Tobago Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to
Animals. P. O. Box 194. Scarborough, Tobgao.
Incidentally, the leatherback, which lays tip to 100 eggs. is fast
disappearing from the seas of the Caribbean.

"The staft ot St. drew'ss

the manner and methods ot

"A document attacking the

knowledge a very great deal of
untruth, twisted statement,
innuendo, statements taken
out of context and other
devices to support baseless
accusations.
"Furthermore, they deeply
regret statements made by two
members of staff in support of
this criticism statements
which might have been taken
to represent the feelings of the
whole staff, but were in actual
fact opinions peculiar to those
two members alone. Despite
this and because of the
sentiments expressed by Mr.
Chaplin in a personal letter to
the staff they wish to make it
clear that they will not take
any action which might
jeopardize the education of the
children in their care and,
therefore, fully intend to
conduct their duties to the

Ford Cortina Estate has style

THERE IS ALWAYS THE QUESTION, as the family and the demands on the family car keep-growing, whether an estate wagon
may not be a better investment than a sedan. If the wagon is to be the second car, there is no problem. If it's number one and only,
the decision could prove difficult. Difficult, that is, before the Cortina estate cars came on the Bahamas' market.


Cortinas, available at ABC
Motors in Centreville, combine
all the convenience of a wagon
with the styling of a sedan.
Gone is the feeling that you
have to drive a "utility vehicle"
to a cocktail party. The estates
have all the styling and luxury
of the Cortina sedans but with
the added value of giving you
hauling space.
The wagons are available in


designed to give better
roadholding and ride with
reduced noise vibration. Front
disc brakes are standard on all
the new Cortinas with drum
brakes on the rear wheels.
There is a choice of three
new engines with the estates -
the 1300cc., the 1600cc and
the all new 2 litre overhead
cam model The 1300 and the
1600 have a substantial power


The Cortina XL estate sets a
new high standard in estate car
luxury. The whole car,
including the luggage area, has
loop-pile carpeting. The
Cortina XL has all the features
of the Cortina L as well as full
panel trim in the luggage area,
a vanity mirror and document
pocket, an electric clock.

three versions Cortina,
Cortina L, and the Cortina XL.
Each model has the same
luxurious level of seating and
trim as its saloon car
counterpart, plus a big
compartment behind the rear
passenger seat which is all
usable space. If even more
space is needed, fold down the
rear seat and you have what
amounts to a small "room"
This extra space of course
solves all kinds of problems,
from taking the kids of school
in one lump to transporting the
dog, the groceries, golf club,
camping gear. And you still
have the styling of a luxury
saloon car.
Ford have made a
breakthrough in their design of
the folding rear seats. They are
the same size and height as the
saloon seats and the back folds
down in one easy movement to
form a flat floor from tailgate
to front seats. The Cortina
estates are the same in every
other respect with the obvious
exception of the coachwork.
Luggage space dimension with
the rear seat folded down is 62

but still retain the Cortina
economy. Automatic

The Cortina estates can also
be fitted with a heavy duty
package which will allow it to
carry heavier than ordinary
loads. The package consists of
heavy duty suspension,
power-assisted brakes with
extra large drums on the rear,
and special reinforced tires.
The passenger area in the
Cortina estate has a tough,
good-looking rubber floor
covering, slide-mounted seats
with adjustable rake, coat
hooks, and the Aeroflow
system which gives a constant
supply of fresh air with face
level ventilation. Two-speed
windshield wipers are standard.
The Cortina L estate has
loop pile carpeting throughout
the passenger compartment.
The luggage area has a hard
wearing rubber covering. The
doors are fully trimmed and
the seats, fully reclining. A
useful innovation is the foot
operated wiper/washer control.
One press squirts water onto
the windshield, and operates
the wipers for a few-strokes.


The Ford Cortina estate
wagons offer the driver all the
comfort and convenience of a
true estate car plus the beauty
and luxury of a town sedan.

Pumpkins are acomin' in

IT IS ALWAYS GOOD TO SEE the pumpkins coming in at the Potter's Cay Produce Exchange
because it means that cooler weather cannot be too far in the future.


Pumpkins are native to the
Western Hemisphere and the
Pilgrams found pumpkin
cooking by the Indians in full
swing when they landed in
New England. The Indians used
every bit of the fruit including
the shell which was dried and

used as a jug or carry-all. The
Pilgrams found another use. It
was the law that men must
have their hair cut "in the
round". When a bowl was not
available, a hollowed out
pumpkin shell did the trick by
serving as the marker for the
scissors.
The original pumpkin pies
were also made in the shell.
With flour often in short
supply the housewife
substituted the shell for the
usual pastry. She scooped put
the seeds and fibres and filled
the shell with milk, sugar,
spices, and maple syrup. The
pumpkin was then baked for
six hours and the result was
eaten with a spoon.
Pumpkins can be used in any
course from soup to desert.

Peel, seed and dice two and
a half pounds of pumpkin and
combine in a soucepan with six
cups of chicken stock, a small
sliced onion and the whites of
six green onions, sliced.
Simmer over low heat until the
pumpkin is soft. Mash it well
and put through a fine strainer.
Bring to a boil and add, a little
at a time, two teaspoons flour
mixed with two teaspoons
butter. Simmer for five
minutes. Cool the soup and
chill it. Stir in a cup of light
cream, a little salt and pepper,
chill and serve.
Combine three cups of beet
broth, a cup of peeled seeded
and chopped tomatoes, a
chopped onion and one bay
leaf in a saucepan and simmer
covered for 15 minutes.
Discard the bay leaf and put
the mixture through a food
mill. Return to the saucepan.
Add a cup of mashed pumpkin,
one and a half teaspoons salt, a
teaspoon pepper, and simmer
for a few minutes. Stir in a cup
of milk. Chill and serve

The Andrea Spencer kidnap
jury, headed by Mr. Anthony
Archer. returned from
Freeport with trial judge Mr.
Justice Samuel Graham and
both counsels in the case
Tuesday evening after flying to
Grand Bahama to visit the
scene of the kidnapping.
Also with them were
McLean and Dames who
pleaded not guilty to the
kidnapping and four other
charges.
Mr. Gregory Schamek, a
Randnd Bahama Telephone
Company employee and
Assistant Police Supt. Ormond
Briggs were called to the
witness stand Wednesday by
the court. They testified about
the jury's visit to Freeport
Tuesday.
It was brought out that an
attempt to demonstrate the use
of the company's FUTL-1
machine for the visiting court
ended in failure due to
technical difficulty.
Mr. Schamck, who told the-
Solicitor General that the
machine did not function
because an I.B.M. card was
"jammed" inside it, termed it
"unusual." A question as to
whether the machine did work
shortly after the court's
departure was disallowed by
Mr. Justice Graham.
Defence counsel Randol
Fawkes. counsel for Dames,
was also told that during the
visit to the telephone company
for the demonstration, the
witness was not sworn to tell
the truth before be began the
demonstration.

against the procedure being
followed.

Telephone Company was one
of several places the members
of the court visited.
Asst. Supt. Briggs said he
accompanied the members of
the court during their visit and
pointed out other sites and
places to them at the request
of Mr. Justice Graham.

DEAR ABBY: Can a man tell if a woman has had
silicone implants to enlarge her breasts! [I don't mean by
looking, I mean by touching.]
I've talked to two girls who have had it done, and one
says a man would have to be awfully dumb not to know,
because hers feel like grapefruit. She said she's not sorry
she did it because they look fine.

Can a man tell if she's had silicone implants?


The other girl said nobody could tell she had anything
done.
Are there any telltale marks? What do your experts
have to say about this? CONSIDERING IT
DEAR CONSIDERING: The girl with the "grapefruit"
must have had her implants some time ago when harder
materials were used. Softer materials are now used that
feel like the real thing.
To answer your question: Whether a man could tell if a
woman had had a breast implant would depend on the
amount of breast tissue she had before surgery and the
way she healed. The only telltale marks are the tiny scars
under the breasts, which in time become practically invisi-
ble. And if a layman tried to prove that a girl had had it
done, he'd have his hands full.
DEAR ABBY: This may sound like I'm bragging, and I
suppose I am, but this is the way it was:
I A couple of weeks ago I was walking past my husband's
chair in the living room when he reached out and took my
hand and said: "Honey, will you marry me?" [We were
married in 1935!] I said: "Are you trying to tell me we
aren't married after all these years?" He grinned and
replied: "Oh, we're good and married. I'm taking an early
t 5 retirement, and we're going to start all over again, just the
two of us, like we did 38 years ago. If you'd like to go thru
rith another wedding with me, I'd like it, too."
row Well, I sat down and bawled. I called a local minister
and explained it to him, saying I hoped he wouldn't think it
was funny. He said he didn't think it was funny at all, he
thought it was beautiful, and he agreed to perform the


ceremony for us. [We didn't need another license or blooa
test.]
My sister, who lives in Bishop, Calif., was my brides-
maid when we were first married, so I called her and
asked if she'd do it again. She said: "Tell me when you
want me, and I'll be there if I have to take a bus." My
brother will be our best man.
This may strike you as nothing special, but it sure
means the world to me. MARRYING DON AGAIN
BALDWIN PARK, CAL.
DEAR MARRYING: I think it's beautiful. Congratula-
tions and God bless you. More couples should renew their
marriage vows.
DEAR ABBY: I disagree with a recent correspondent
who wrote: "Most cancer victims read the obituaries with
apprehension and fear."
My vocal cords were removed by surgery 13 years ago
because of throat cancer. Instead of apprehension and fear,
I have confidence in the future and enjoy life today.
I am not a victim-but a victor, thanks to the progress
that's made the kind of cancer I had curable in almost
every instance if detected in time. JERRY F. CROWLEY
DEAR JERRY: You are a victor indeed, and I thank
you for this opportunity to remind my readers to see their
doctors for periodic checkups.
DEAR ABBY: My daughter, Pam, was invited to be a
bridesmaid. She was thrilled becausheshe had never been in
a wedding party before. The bride's mother invited all the
girls in the wedding party over to plan a shower for the


bride.
We have a nice largefinished basement party room, so
Pam offered to have the shower here. The bride's mother
said: "Oh, no, I want it at the '- [and she named
an expensive restaurant.] The girls just looked at each
other in amazement. Pam then asked the mother if she
planned to help them financially, and she said: "Emphat-
ically no, you girls are supposed to give this shower!"
The girls agreed to have it at a restaurant, to please
the mother, but they chose a less expensive one. The next
day the bride called my daughter and coldly said: "Pam, if
you couldn't afford to be in my wedding party, why did you
accept? I think it's best if you drop out, so I'm sending the
$20 deposit you put on the bridesmaid's gown, and I'm
asking someone else instead. Goodby."
My daughter couldn't believe her ears.
Now, listen to this. This girl had the gall to send Pam
an invitation to her wedding.
If you were she, what would you send her? MOM
DEAR MOM: My regrets!
CONFIDENTIAL TO "TEMPTED IN ALLENTOWN":
You must have too much time on your hands. Temptatem
never enters our minds when we are steeped in work.
Problems? Yoa'll feel better if you get t off year het.

MARRIAGE PLANS FOILED
BY IMMIGRATION
TORONTO (AP) Randolph
Misir's plans to be married Oct. 12
have been cancelled because his
bride-to-be was unable to sneak
into Canada this weekend from
Guyana.
Seeta Bidyadhar. 22. was denied
entry to Canada when she arrived at
Toronto International Airport
Friday night.
Misir, a 26-year-old landed
immigrant, said Miss Bidyadhar's
mistake was telling the truth that
she came to Toronto to be married
and had no authorization to stay.
At first, he said, she told
immigration officers at the airport
she was here on a four-week
vacation.
She returned to Guyana
Saturday, 14 hours after arriving in
Canada

I CARROLL RIGHTER'S



from the Carroll Righter Institute
GENERAL TENDENCIES: A day and evening
\N to please members of your family so that they
realize your devotion and thoughtfulness. Also fine for
developing ideas that are important to you for making
decisions of an emotional nature. Make future plans.
ARIES (Mar. 21 to Apr. 19) If you are more cheerful at
home, you find the situation lightens there and harmony is
quickly restored. Use your hunches in a constructive way. Do
not overeat and get more rest and sleep.
TAURUS (Apr. 20 to May 20) Show that you are
conscientious and efficient in the handling of daily routines.
Don't enter into any arguments with others. Care in motion
and alertness is advised to prevent accidents.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 21) Find a new and more
profitable outlet now to meet your needs. Cut down on
expenses wherever possible and start building a cash reserve.
Forget plans for immediate travel. Relax tonight.
MOON CHILDREN (June 22 to July 21) Stop feeling that
others are imposing on you and become a more friendly and
successful person. Go shopping and purchase an item of
apparel that perks up your spirit. Think positive.
LEO (July 22 to Aug. 21) Instead of trying to get away
from your responsibilities, handle them with efficiency and
make a good impression on others. Being of service to a
worthy person now brings fine benefits.
VIRGO (Aug. 22 to Sept. 22) Showing more affection for
good friends and relations is most wise and right at this time.
Use tact if you attend a group affair and avoid arguments.
Become a more active person.
LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You have to use care in the
handling of a public business affair since bigwigs are watching
you. Don't wait any longer where a credit matter is concerned.
Take health treatments.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) It is wise to first handle
tasks at hand before you go off to meet with persons you met
in the recent past. Obtain information that will help you
advance. Do something nice for a friend.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Keep rooted to the
obligations you have that are important so you have free time
for more important activities later on. Make allowances for
your mate if you disagree on anything.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 20) Don't permit one who is
emotional to get under your skin but just keep busy at own
duties. Handle outside tasks with vim and vigor. Show business
associates you have good common sense.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19) Delve right into the work
ahead of you and keep out of trouble that way. Take the
treatments that build up your health. Don't take any chances
that could lower your stamina. Be calm.
PISCES (Feb. 20 to Mar. 20) Use that fine smile and be
cheerful so that others around you will be inspired. Don't get
into any anything extravagant. Enjoy the tried and true
instead of taking any chances.
IF YOUR CHILD IS BORN TODAY... he or she will be
one of those intelligent young people who could do very well
in such fields as psychology, psychiatry, personnel, or
whatever has to do with helping others to help themselves.
Teach to finish whatever has once been started so that there
can be real success here. Give good religious training early in
life. A musical bent here.
"The Stars impel, they do not compel." What you make of
your life is largely up to YOU!

Bridge
By VICTOR MOLLO
Suit Preference signals have
been in vogue for nearly forty
years. Associated with the names
of Lavinthal and McKenney,
the convention consists in play-
ing an unnecessarily high card
to show interest in a higher-
ranking suit and a low card to
direct attention to the lower-
ranking, trumps being excluded.
An extension called "The
Negative Discn-rd," the subject of
a treatise by Manfleld fled, is
especially suited to no trumps.
Here's an example:
North
K J
SKJ
02 109.7 2
J 4 2
West East
S7 4 1 0 863 2
S7 52 A Q 10 9
A J 8 5 3 0 -
4 Q 9 7 10 6 5 3
South
A Q 9 5
S8 6 4 3
0 K 6 4
CONTRACT 3NT: LEAD 05.
East discards the *-10 to direct
attention to hearts, the higher.
ranking suit. If he wanted a
club, he would discard the 42.
Of course, partner must know
the convention and not misin-
terpret the signals. The snag, as
with other conventions, is that
declarer can often turn the
signals to his advantage.
When this hand was played,
declarer saw at once the danger
of losing the lead to West. So,
abandoning his natural line of
play, he left diamonds strictly
alone, and after cashing his
spades, negotiated the tmnesse
in clubs. That gave him eight
tricks. The fourth club put East
on play, forcing a heart lead to
duiniy's KJ.

49 handicap pins in each game
shut out a three member third
place Thompson's Department
Store 3-0 in last night's
Zephyre League action.
Without the assistance of
two of their top bowlers Gloria
Bethel and Ivy French, the
defending champions fell
626-605. 644-609 and 697-634
dropping into fourth while
Maura's took third. French and
Bethel respectively hold sixth
and tenth place in the league.
Actually, had it not been for
the handicap pins. Thompsons
would have emerged 2-1
victors.
It was then left to Ann
Rogers fifth in the league
with a 146 average Kay
Albury and Patricia Sweeting
to hold the fort, while French
and Bethel's averages minus ten
pins were added each game.
Unable to recapture the

two strikes and two spares for
a 119.

game got a high of 144 bowling
two pins above her average.
Brenda Albury had 119.
I hc second ganie which xwas
a near repeat of the first game
saw Pinder collecting her game
high of 165 while Charlene
Lowe came through with 125.
Thompson's were still
unable to measure up to
standard and a 125 tossed in
by Kay Albury was their high
game. Sweeting had 115.
Although Sweeting and
Rogers increased to 155 and
124 respectively in the final
game, they were unable to
surpass a 152 by Pinder and
160 by Saunders who saw
