'BASIC THREAT HERE IS DISPARITY IN OUR

COUNTRY BETWEEN HAVES & HAVE NOTS'


PM


challenges


By MIKE LOTHIAN
FREEPORT The Progressive Liberal Party must set
new goals to aim labour's increasing political activism
and the new generation's liberalism, Prime Minister
Lynden 0. Pindling warned PLP convention delegates
Monday night.


And for the second time in
three years, Mr. Pindling has
taken the bold step of being
the first to raise publicly the
spectre of dissension within the
party, in a bid to close ranks
before possible in-fighting
develops.
Although, as in his famous
"fish or cut bait" speech at the
PLP's 1970 convention. Mr.
Pindling last night called no
names, it was clear that labour
was one of the objects of his
thinly-veiled warning.
The Prime Minister's
23-page, 50 minute keynote
address in the Holiday Inn's
Independence Hall ranged from
world affairs and their
implications for the Bahamas
through local economic and
social conditions to party
politics on the home front.
lHe declare that changing
conditions on the international
scene make it impevative that
the Bahamas secure its owin
suppl-ies of fuels and look to
closer neighbours for trade.
lie conceded that such
problem, as unemployment,
housing, the c,,st of living,
alcoholism illegitimacy and
law and order "have become
more pressing because the
(Govemmcnt's attention and
energies were diverted to
S :i, ons fo, 'ini t '... .'"
hut offered some suggestions
to back his assertion that "they
are not insoluble."
I \\1 'D) AD'
I e declared that the
opposition Free National
Movement "has only a past, it
is dead." and warned delegates
to beware of "several political
personalities" who are or will
be trying to fill the
"oppostiion vacuum" by
stealing the PLP's thunder and
trying to alienate its support.
Alluding to the recent
expulsions of four FNM
parliamentarians all former
U'BP's over the Abaco secession
movement, the Prime Minister
predicted that "by December
this year the glue will have
fallen out completely and the
FNM will need a new slogan:
'All Apart.' The Free-PLP's


solution


will have gone their way and
the UBP's will have gone theirs,
and never the twain shall ever
again meet.
"The immediate implications
for the Bahamas," he said, "are
that the disintegration of the
FNM has created a vacuum in
opposition politics, a vacuum
which has been sensed by some
already. This explains the
flurry of activity on the part of
several political personalities
who, consciously or
unconsciously, are seeking to
fill that vacuum."
Returning to the subject
later in his speech, Mr. Pindling
concluded:
"Do not be surprised,
therefore, if you find over the
next two years many who
will attempt to steal the
party's thunder and try to
alienate our support by trying
to show that they have the
people's interest more at
heart than our party does. In
the next few months, if not
-" k., ioA iii;.<, inside fn,.
outside the House, who have
lost their creditability and/or
their following will be making
new efforts to mislead some
of the people.
"But the people will not be
misled or confused by the
noise in the market," he
declared. "They will be
concerned only with the price
of the fish. They know only
too well that whoever foolishly
seeks power by riding on the
back of a tiger eventually ends
iup inside."
LABOUR ITHRI-AT
clearlyy referring to the
threat posed by organized
labour, Mr. Pindling continued:
"The basic threat to the
peace and security of the
Bahamas is not (uba or
Coinminism or Black Power or
any thing like that. I believe


FNM leader slams PM on


underratingg' unemployment

By NICKI KELLY
PRIME MINISTER LYNDEN PINDLING was today accused
of underrating the "serious unemployment situation" in the
country and of being hopelessly out of touch with reality.


The Prime Minister told the
PLI' convention last night that
3.000 jobs were needed in New
Providence. 500 in Grand
Bahama and 500 in the rest of
the Family Islands.
'Mr. Pindling is either sadly
misinformed or he is
deliberately trying to lull the
people into a false appreciation
of the problems facing the
country, Opposition Leader
Kendal Isaacs, declared.
He said that as early as
1970, when the effect of PLP
mismanagement first started to
set in, unemployment in the
country was over 3.000 "and it
has got steadily worse since
then".
It was estimated in
September 1971, Mr. Isaacs
said, that 5,000 were
unemployed in the
construction industry alone
and there was nothing to show
that there had been any
improvement in that area.
"In addition to that.
thousands of young people
leaving school every year have
swelled the ranks of the
unemployed to a dangerous

level. It is estimated that at
least 2,000 maybe 3.000 young
people enter the job market
every year.
"The Prime Minister's
formula for economic salvation
is like prescribing aspirin for
heat failure. And there is no

keynote address was described
by the FNM Leader as a
"confession of failure thinly
disguised by empty rhetoric.
Particularly deplorable. he said.
was Mr. Pindling's attempt to
cover up PLP responsibility for
the country's economic plight
by blaming international
conditions.
"We used to hear about the
depression in the United States
causing our problems, but the
United States has since
achieved an economic boomn
and is thinking about the
possibility of its next cyclical
recession.
"The Bahamas has for most
of its history been able to take
advantage of international
conditions and turn them to
the advantage of Bahamians."
The reason this was not
possible today was simply
because the PLP had destroyed
confidence in the country by
"misguided policies and
appalling incompetence," Mr.
Isaacs asserted.
"Some of the results of this
were pin-pointed by the Prime
Minister but he offered no
hope of any solutions being
provided by the PLP," he said.

ROBBED AT

GUNPOINT

stolen.
The robbery occurred at
10.45 p.m. while manager
Chester Ferguson and the three
females were on duty.
A spokesman for the firm
said a small blue I triumph with
two men in it drove in and one
of the men stepped out lust as
a clerk opened the door and
went out to take the order.
"She saw the man holding a
handkerchief over hie face but
didn't think anything of it.
When he said "let's go in," she
just turned around and went
back."
The mIan reportedly
followed her and once inside,
wielded a sawed off shotgun
and announced that "this is a
holdup." The second man also
came in carrying a rifle.
The two were described as in
their early '20's.
As the three girls huddled in
a corner, the masked robber
pulled open one of the drawers
and took out $300 in cash. IHe
then started pounding on the
cash register in an effort to get
it open.
The manager told him he
didn't have the key and the
men grabbed the handbags of
the three womenn instead.
"One of the girls had to
sleep at a friend's house
because hci apartment keys
were in her bag." Ilhe tribune
swas told.

that the threat to our peace
and stability is the disparity in
our own country between the
haves and the have nots.
"I believe therefore that the
future of our party depends
very largely upon our making
an economic success of
independence."
Mr. Pindling told the
approximately 370 convention
delegates and the packed
pub li c gallery that
"conservatism will herald the
death knell of our party."
lie pointed out that the
goalA the party had been
pursuing were those envisioned
,it the party's founding 20
years ago.
"Fven though they were
refined and updated as we
went along ... \ve nust not
forget that 20 ears is a long
time and our revolutionary
fervour might have dampened
and waned. In those 20 years a
new generation of Bahamian
has come onto the scene, a
gete-ration which is better
educated, more articulate and
less conservative than their
fathers and mother rs were."
lie said many of the
amenities taken for granted by
today's youth are the results of
their parents' efforts to attain
their goals.
"This is a young nation,
whose population is young,
whose population has young
ideas and a new slate of goals
to conquer. IThis is a generation
which for better or for worse
grew up on moon landings for
breakfast and Superfly tor
supper.
"Here is where the next
20-years work is cut out for
our party: here is where the
real political action will be.
CHAN(;FS N IDI D
"The Progressive Liberal
Party must not become a
reactionary and conservative
party; we iust not he afraid of
changes; we must not lose our
radical leal. We must continue
to be progressive and liberal.
"The next 20 years is not a
time to rest on our laurels."
Mr. Pindling continued. "We
have taken our rest and
acknowledged our shows and
accepted our bouquets in this
year of independence. We must
now plan to stay on the top for
it does not happen
automatically.
"To stay on top, this part,
must find new causes to
champion and new social
injustices to eradicate. And we
must champion those causes
and eradicate those injustices,
even if we discover them
amongst ourselves."
Mr. Pindling suggested a
three-way effort to deal with
the social and economic
problems which he said had
worsened since the last
convention because of the
distraction of the moves
towards independence.
"Firstly, we as a
Government. a party and a
nation must adopt the slogan
of the Ministry of
Development and resolve to
'Build a Better Bahamas'
Secondly, we must face our
problems squarely and battle
them resolutely with the same
total effort that marked our
approach to independence.
Thirdly, we must set ourselves
targets and then throw our
total resources into achieving
our objectives in the time set
or less."
SOME TARGETS
Some of the targets the
Prime Minister laid out called
on Bahamians to'
"Find ways and means of
creating 3,000 new jobs in New
Providence, 500 in Grand
Bahama and 500 in the
remainder of the family
islands:


"Develop the formula and
the finance to build decent
homes at a cost not exceeding
$10,000 and lower, if possible;
"Develop, after ascertaining
the difference between the
high cost of living and the cost
of high living, the capacity to
feed ourselves;
"Seek to develop an
environment that would
militate against alcoholism and
illegitimacy rather than
contribute to it:
"Re-develop and make safe
and sanitary the heavily
populated areas of New
Providence.
"Demonstrate, as leaders,
our own respect tor law and
order. "
The Prime Minister told the
delegates that in order to
consider solutions to the
problems "there is certain
information which you need to
know. For instance, 3,000 new
jobs in New Providence and
500 new jobs in each of Grand
Bahama and the remainder of
the famifv islands will teed
15,000 mouths and provide a
level of employment that will
suppass anything ever achieved
in the nation.
10,000 JOBS AVAILABLE
"There are 10.000 jobs in
the country which are available
now but which Bahamians
refuse to take.
"Almost all the jobs we need
to find can be found in the
course of a national drive to
build low-cost homes and tlhe
remainder can be found in
developing new industries and
expanding existing ones."
His only expansion on his
assertion that there are
thousands of jobs available
that Bahamians will not take
were the statement that while
"we have done a Rood job of
training Bahamians for the
upper level jobs ... somewhere
along the way we have missed
the boy or girl who was not
the high-flier at school and
could not be equipped as
speedily and as easily to
perform the more
sophisticated jobs in the
country.
"Renewed attention must
now be directed to this middle
level Bahamian worker."
WORLD AFFAIRS
Turning to world affairs. Mr
Pindling sought to relate the
easing of tensions between tlhe
U.S., Russia and (ommunist
China to what he has termed
"a potential United States ot
Furope." a new world powei
he suggests will evolve from the
I uropean economic ('ommiun-
ity and counter-balance the
counter-balance the influence
of the other powers.
He said Britain's entry into
the EEC in January this year
signalled taking Britain's
interest away from the
Commonwealth, towards
Europe, and sparked a trend
among Commonwealth nations
such as Canada, Australia and
New Zealand towards more
independent and more
self-aiding diplomacy and
commerce.
lie suggested that the
Bahamas would follow suit.
"The immediate implic-
ations for the Bahamas
of Britain's entry into the
Common Market," he said,
"are that we must immediately
begin to become more aware of
our neighbours and explore the,
possibilities of greater trade in
this hemisphere.
"For example, we must
appreciate the fact that we
export to Guyana thousands of
tons of aragonite each year,
but have not availed ourselves
of the opportunity to import
from Guyana rice and wood
panels which can be obtained
there at prices far better than


we now pay when such goods
arc obtained from our
traditional suppliers."
continuing Mr. Pindling
pointed out that North and
West African, Mid Fast and
South American oil producing
countries have been seeking
and getting increased prices for
their oil.
In his first public reference
to the recently renewed
Arab-Israeli war. Mr. Pindling
added that "this particular
problem is likely to be further
aggravated by the present
situation in the Middle East
where continued war could
lead to an international crisis
of major proportions."
lie went on'
'he question of oil,
therefore, is one that would be
of increasing significance to the
Bahamas. Unless we develop
some means to assure ourselves
of a readily available source of
gasoline, kerosene, diesel and
aviation fuel, the development
of our islands will be slowed
down considerably.
"Although we cannot ignore
the necessity to protect our
environment, neither can we
ignore the desirability of
refining crude oil on our shore
so that supply and delivery for
our domestic needs will be
under our control. When this is
achieved, and I believe that it
could be achieved within three
years, the electrification of the
family islands and economic
development of the family
islands would be accelerated."
The Prime Minister's
well-received address followed
a speech at the morning session
in which Grand Bahama M.P.
Kendal Nottage urged the
party to reconsider its
philosophies and policies and
to concentrate on winning over
today's youth.
The Prime Minister spent
much of Monday afternoon in
conference with Mr. Nottage,
and he may have altered his
speech to expand on Mr.
Nottage's theme The speech
he delivered dealt very little
with the announced topic.
"Freedom with responsibility."
The keynote address.

Bahamas, was also filmed by a
Miami television news team

YOUTH CONGRESS

TO LOOK INTO

UNEMPLOYMENT

THE NATIONAL Youth
Congress has named a
committee to look into
spiralling living costs and the
mass unemployment situation
among the country's young
people.
Committee member Carlton
A. Martin said it was the
general feeling of the NYC that
the Ministry of Development,
The Youth Employment
Exchange and the Ministry of
Finance, which is responsible
for implementing the Price
control l Act, had not
performed up to the standard
expected of them. The issue of
youth and labour in the
Bahamas was recently
discussed at a meeting of the
Central Council of the NYC.
The discussion touched on
the rate of growth of the
Bahamian economy; the
expansion of the labour force,
the attitudes of major
employment agencies toward
the high rate of unemployment
and also the viability and
general make-up of the present
Bahamian educational system.
It was the general opinion of
the Council that the economy
is virtually static.

Mattar also reported, that
Israeli confusion and
"providence' played a role in
the successful crossing. As part
of their defenses, he said. the
Israelis had set up about 250

bank ot Suez Lanal


By The Associated Press
PRESIDENT ANWAR SADAT of Egypt claimed today his
troops have aiissiles poised "to fire into the very depths of Israel
any minute." But Premier Golda Meir of Israel claimed the
Egyptian tank charge into the Sinai has been halted and Israeli
troops were on the western bank of the Suez Canal.


Tank and artillery battles
raged in the Sinai desert and in
Syria as Sadat made a tough
address to the Egyptiar,
People's Assembly in Cairo and
Mrs. Meir talked to the Israeli
Parliament in Jerusalem.
"At this very moment Israeli
forces are on the western bank
of the Canal." the 75-year-old
Israeli Premier said.
Mrs. Meir did not say how
many Israelis were on the
western side of the Suez ('anal
or where they had crossed.
Egypt took control of the
103-mile-long waterway after
its troops stormed across at the
outbreak of the current
hostilities Oct. 6 and pushed
into the Sinai peninsula seized
by Israel in 1967. Since then
Israeli and Egyptian tanks and
artillery have been battling
along an uneven front placed
bv claims from both sides at
from three to 10 miles east of
the (Canal.
ARAB THREATS
Sadat coupled his missile
threat with an announcement
he is ready to reopen the
Canal, closed since the 1967
conflict, and sign a cease-fire
leading to a peace conference
under U.N. auspices. But he
said this would be possible
only if Israel pulls out of the
Arab land it captured in 1967
and guarantees the rights of the
Palestinian people.
Israel has rejected both
demands in the past as prior
conditions for negotiations.
Mrs. Meir declared in her
talk apparently not intended
as a point-by-point response to
Sadat that Israel will never
sign a cease-fire with the Arabs
unless it specifies the return of
"all our prisoners".
BATTLE AT HEIGHT
The Egyptian "charge" has
been curbed, the 75-year-old
Israeli leader said. But she
admitted that battle was at its
height on the southern front.
Mrs. Meir declared flatly
that Israel will never sign a
cease-fire agreement with the
Arabs unless it includes
arrangements for the return of
"all our prisoners." including
those now listed as missing.
The number of Israeli POW.
has not been disclosed.
The grandmother-Premier
did not say immediately how
the Israelis struck back across
the Canal and whether it was a
major offensive or a minor
incursion into Egyptian
territory.
Tank and artillery battles
had been reported raging along
the Sinai front during the day.
Israel said its warplanes struck
a military base and radar


stations on Egypt's
Mediterranean coast
In only a fleeting reference
to the war on Israel's northern
front. Mrs. Meir said the Syrian
army had been "badly hit" and
Iraqi forces "badly hurt". The
phrases came from an
unofficial translation of the
speech she delivered in
Iebrew.
The Prime Minister went on
to accuse the Soviet Union of
seeking to profit front the Arab
war against Israel.
Two days ago, Mrs. Meir
said, a Jordanian force of 80
tanks moved into Syria under
the command of Iraqi officers
fighting with the Syrians
against Israel.
"We don't want war with
Jordan," she told the first
meeting of the parliament since
the war began. The Knesset
was in recess when hostilities
erupted on the northern and
southern fronts Oct. 6.
"It is in Jordan's interest not
to go to war with Israel," she
added. But she described King
Ilussein's move as a "worrying
step
.t aritng a short-sleeved

Mediterranean coast west of
Port Said.
1O SMASH ENEMY
Mrs. Meir said Israel has not
been offered a cease-fire "from
any source"
In her 40-minute speech she
made no reference to Egyptian
President Anwar Sadat's threat
to fire missiles into the depths
of Israel.
She ended by telling the
Parliamentarians: "Our
immediate aim is to repulse the
enemy on both fronts. Thanks
to the bravery of our sons we
will attain this aim. We have to
show the enemy that war is not
the way to settle disputed
issues...
"Driving back the enemy
and smashing his forces is a
condition of ensuring our very
future."
Then Mrs. Meir looked up
over the microphones ranged in
front of the podium.
"1 have been asked
repeatedly, when will it end?"
she said. "My answer is, when
we manage to defeat the
enemy."
"We will do everything to
complete it in the shortest
time."

NASHVILLE, TENN. (AP) A broken and bitter Spiro T.
Agnew says that pressure from the highest levels of the Nixon
administration forced him to resign, the Nashville Banner said
today.


In a copyrighted story, the
Banner said Agnew told the
newspaper's Washington
correspondent, Frank van Der
Linden, that he never cheated
on any income tax return in his
life and was guilty of no
wrongdoing.
The interview took place
Sunday, four days after Agnew
resigned, and was given under
the condition that no direct
quotes be used, the newspaper
said.
According to the
newspaper's account of the
interview:
Agnew said the government
forced him into pleading "no
contest" to the income tax
evasion charge and demanded
his resignation in return for the
dropping of charges of bribery
and conspiracy.
Agnew said that the gifts he
received from supporters were
not taxable income, nor were
they bribes, and he provided
no influence in return.
PRESSURED
Agnew claimed .the case
against him rested on the
testimony of four witnesses
out of more than 200
interviewed. He said the
prosecutors pressured the four
into linking his name directly
with a kickback scheme.


Kidnapped consul IAPA warned of

(;l'.A I. AJARA, MFXICO(
(Al') British honorary consul
Anthony Williams said Monday he
was released unharmed by his
Communist guerrilla kidnappers
after they tried him and found him
innocent of being a bourgoisie and
exploiter.
In a press conference at his
home. Williams. 47. said his
abductors decided that the federal
government decision not to release
51 jailed prisoners and pay
$200.000 for the release of him
and industrialist Fernando
Aranguren proved he swas not
bourgoisie.
'oThey said that if I had been
part of the bourgoisie the
government would have given
anything to save me." the
Meexican-born physician said.
There was no word on the fate of
Aranguren, 36, who was kidnapped
in a separate abduction Wednesday
morning, when Williams was taken
from his home by five armed men.
"The only thing I can remember
when I was kidnapped," said
Williams. "was the large holes at the
ends of their pistols." He said they
blindfolded him and covered his
head with a hood when they drove
him off in his car. Hle was
transferred to another vehicle and
taken over a dirt road to a house
which he thought was on a farm.
Williams said he was kept in a
small room with newspapers
covering all the walls. One hooded
kidnapper guarded him during the
five days he was held.
"When the door was closed I
couldn't hear any noises but when
they opened it I could hear farm
noises and I detected the odor of a
stable," the bearded Williams
recalled.
"They covered my head again
when they put me in a station
wagon to free me. They asked me
to give them 10 minutes so they
could get away," Williams said.
"When the time passed I began
to bang on the window of the
vehicle," Williams said explaining
his hands had been tied.
A passerby noticed him and
released him from the car.
"When they wanted to talk to
me they always covered my face
and they considered me a
bourgoisie," he said.
Williams said he became friendly
with the kidnapper who acted as his
guard. "When I asked them their
ideology they said they were
Communist guerrillas."


Mc(loskey declined to
specify whether planes, tanks
and other heavy weapons were
being shuttled to Israel, but
more than ammunition and
small arms would be needed to
offset Soviet shipments and
make up an estimated loss of
one-fifth of Israel's air power.
He said some equipment has
reached Israel.
Portuguese sources said
cargo and warplanes were
stopping at a U.S. air force
base in the Azores and were all
headed east.
Officials here said some of
the flights carrying U.S.
supplies passed over
Yugoslavia, which regularly
sides with the Arabs on the
diplomatic front in their
disputes with Israel.

against press

Iy ISam Summerlin
BOSTON (AP) The
Inter-Merican Press Association w\as
warned today that "deadly war" is
now being i\.aged against freedom
of the press in the Americas.
German Ornes, publisher of El
Caribe of Santo Donmingo, and
chairman of the IAPA's freedom of
the press committee, painted a
sombre picture as he described how
hemispheric governments are trying
to curb newspapers and
broadcasters in the hemisphere.
Ornes addressed the opening
session of the 29th annual
convention of the association,
whichruns through Friday night.
Publishers from the Caribbean,
Latin America and the United
States will debate the status of
press freedom country-by-country
and hear speakers talk about such
critical issues as Watergate and the
newsprint shortage.
Some 400 publishers and editors
arc gathered at the Sheraton Boston
for the IAPA convention. In
addition to the debates, the
delegates will view exhibits of
technological equipment which is
modernizing the production of
newspapers.
Ornes, in his introductory
remarkai, declared:
"Although freedom iof
information guarantees formally
exist in almost every American
nation, they are usually ignored or
flagantly violated. As a result,
tensions between press and
government frequently reach such a
state of animosity that they by-pass
what traditionally has been
accepted in all open societies as a
natural adversary relationship.
"Worse yet, official prejudice
against the free press is so virulent
in many cases that even nominally
democratic rulers tend to see signs
of a sinsiter conspiracy in the
performance of the mass media.


Agnew said he was told by
friends that the strategy would
be to allow Congres to impeach
him and to remove him from
office. Then there would he
almost no way for him to get a
fair trial because the jury
would almost certainly follow
Congressional lead and convict
him.
Agnew said it is ridiculous to
imply that he has thousands of
dollars buried somewhere. lie
has no job, no income, and a
$195,000 house which is
heavily mortgaged. In addition
he has to pay lawyers' fees and
a $10,000 fine on the income
tax charge.
Agnew was once the most
popular Republican
fund-raising speaker. However,
he said he never took any
payment for the speeches,
despite raising $5.5 million for
the GOP coffers.
Agnew said he cannot help
feeling disillusioned. le
recalled that a few months ago
he was the leading Republican
prospect for the presidential
nomination in 1976. Today,
his political life is over. lie is a
ruined man.
He said his principal solace is
his wife, Judy. Friends and
former staff nieembers are also
loyally standing by him.


'deadly war'


freedom
"Noi wonder that confrontations
between press and governinents
often take the forms of seemingly
insoluble conflicts. No wonder,
either, that many people assert,
without being seriously
contradicted, that never before had
newspapers and magazines not to
mention radio and television
suffered so many blatant attempts
to either manipulate or destroy
them.
"There is nothing rhetorical in
our affirmation that a deadly war is
now being waged against freedom
of the press. Actually, the \var is
fought in many fronts and takes
more than one form. "Fortunately.
the press, although badly hurt, has
not yet been overcome. And
probably that will never happen as
long as journalists are willing to join
in a common effort of which the
Inter-American Press Association
(IAPA) is only one manifestation
to give good use to the enormous
reserves of moral strength still at
their disposal."
Ornes commented that the
"Caribbean is dotted with countries
- both free and dependent
whose rulers either tyrannize their
people or look for convenient
excuses to downgrade or curtail the
role of a free press.
"There are several nations," said
Ornes, "'whose official leadership
feels and openly proclaims that
underdeveloped societies cannot
afford the luxury of a free press.
rhe rulers of Guyana, St. Kitts and
Antigua share this strange
conception of the role of
journalism.
"Nothing, however, is farther
from the truth. If the free press
were a handicap to development,
the United States would still be a
backward country."
Ornes noted that only tour
countries in South America
Argentina, Colombia, Guyana and
Venezuela are ruled by
'"genuinely freely elected regimes."

"We are concerned that the
Soviet airlift will unsettle the
balance which we have been
committed to maintain for
many, many years," said
Robert J. McCloskey. the
Department spokesman.
He said the Russians had
airlifted about 4,000 tons of
equipment to Israel's Arab foes
in 2X0 flights.
At the same time.
McCloskey said. Washington
will continue diplomatic
contacts with the Soviet
Union, searching for a way to
end the Middle Fast conflict.
President Nixon declared
earlier at a White Ilouse
ceremony that "we stand for
the right of every nation in tlhe
Mideast to maintain its
independence and security."
Ihis was taken as a broad hint
that the United States intends
to stand behind Israel in the
fighting.
The President also described
U.S. policy as "like the policy
we followed in 1958 when
Lebanon was involved."
However, McCloskey cautioned
against interpreting Nixon's
remarks as predicting a
"specific tactic."
The United States landed
marines in Lebanon to support
the government against
insurgents in that incident.
The U.S. airlift began
sometime Sunday, Senior U.S.
officials said.

By ETIENNE DIUPUCll
YESTERDAY I completed a series of articles on tourism and
investment in which I traced the swing of the human pendulum in
the Bahamas from one extreme of the community to the other.
This change of the guard was inevitable but the swing was too
fast and it has gone too far. As in all extremist behaviour, the
result has not been healthy and forebodes hardship and misery
for many of our people.
****************
While a majority of our people have allowed themselves to be
brainwashed by racist propaganda and in the hope that they
may discover the proverbial pot of gold at the end of the rainbow
a very large number have retained their sense of reason and
have continued to behave in a manner that reflects to their credit.
***************
I am constantly surprised by the high standard of letters 1
receive through the mail from people who are completely
unknown to nle.
Throughout last year's political campaign I received a number
of well reasoned and remarkably well written letters from a man
who gave his address as Blue Hill Road. lhey were signed and
soie of them were published.
They were so sound in their concept that I sometimes
wondered whether, perhaps, neither the signature nor thle address
was genuine.
Not that I didn't feel that people in that area of the island
could reason and express themselves logically, but I was surprised
that anyone in that highly volatile P.L.P. area would have the
courage to stand up and not be afraid to) be counted.
4**************:
Now I know that this man is genuine because he recently wrote
a political paper in which he expressed his views on the present
situation in the Bahamas. He sent it to, my daughter. Mrs. Carron,
with the request tiha it be sent to me.
In a covering letter to Mrs. 'arron he wrote: "I would be
grateful for yor u assistance in having this copy delivered directly
to Sir Etienne lDuhpuch so lie can study it carefully and express his
views on the basis of some ideas contained in this paper.
"I do not wish this document to be published but would prefer
Sir Ftiennc's editorial content as s a means of widespread public
expression for some of the views lhe considers relevant to the
needs for a strong Opposition in thle country to avoid the
emergence of uncontrolled tyranny in a one party state, which
seems the current trend in Bahalmian politics.
"Thankint you for help in this matter as we continue the
struggle for the survival of democracy in our homeland."

Attached to the political paper was a personal letter to rme in
which he wrote:
"Kindly find attached a political paper produced by the
undersigned, being an avowed supporter of the Free National
Movement prior to the General Ilection (September Ih1. 1972)
and presently.
"I am deeply moved and concerned for thle future of our
country, therefore I am contributing these ideas in the form of
suggestions to stimulate re-thinking and renewed action, having
you exert your tremendously respected political influence in
widely circulating it among top political colleagues in order for
us to make a new beginning as a vibrant political entity.
"As a present university student majoring in Economnics and
minoring in Political Science. I would be happy to assist in any
way possible for the future national advancement of our nation.
"Kindly arrange to have additional reprints of the attached
political paper made for the benefit of other policy makers in the
Free National Movement during this period of objective
introspection in our joint efforts to make the organization a
national success."

It is a very long document and I have no doubt that he said it
was not for publication because he thought we would not be able
to spare the space.
But it is a good paper and, although the thoughts he expresses
are directed at the leaders of the F.N.M. opposition, I feel that it
should be given wide circulation, and so it will be published in
The Tribune in three or four instalments.
I feel that in the present situation we need to do more than
address ourselves to political leaders. We need to talk directly to
the people because, until we arouse their consciousness to the
danger of the situation, there is no chance of bringing the social
movement in the country nearer the centre where people can
reason together like rational human beings.
Somewhere in the Bible is a passage that reads: "Come let us
reason together, saith the Lord".
Until we get our people to the point where they will listen to
sound reason there is no hope of getting them together even for
their own good.
**** ******* ***
This young man wants my views on his paper. I think it is a
sound document and so The Tribune will give it space.
There is only one point on which I take issue with him....and it
is a thought which is apparently widespread in the top echelon of
the F.N.M. today. It is the cancer which is gnawing at the belly of
the P.L.P.
It is that, because a majority of the people of the Bahamas are
black and becuase they have been emotionally attuned tom the
thought that it is political suicide for the F.N.M. to have any
white parliamentary associations. They too should go all black.
I cannot accept this proposition because I think it is both
unfair and unwise.

I need not give reasons to justify my statement that it is unfair.
Any society that relegates any section of its people to a
permanently inferior position is behaving in an un-Christian
manner.
I need not remind readers of this column that I fought against
absolute white rule in the Bahamas. It was The Tribune and my
activities in the Legislature that pioneered in a movement to
open doors for coloured people in the islands.


DEMOCRACY FACING DEATH ?


IEDITOR, The Tribune
The burning issue on the
political consciousness of so
many politically alert, deeply
concerned Bahamians today is:
"What next will happen to
us?" The creeping paralysis of
fear is having its effect on free
expression as the present P.L.P.
administration moves
ruthlessly, sometimes with
great subtlety but generally
blatantly, in punishment of
Opposition supporters by
devious methods of political
intimidation and victimization.
The country's present political
course is clear if not reversed
quickly ... slow but sure
development of constitutional
dictatorship in action despite
the sweet flowing phrases of 'a
democratic society in this
Co mmonwealth' by
butchers of the truth. A large
portion of the blame, history
will record, for the
strangulation of free expression
in this country, would be
placed at the doorstep of a
weak, fragmented Opposition
... if the damage of disunity in
our own camp is not repaired
now!


The present hierarchy of the
Free National movement need
to carefully consider the
following suggestions and act
both wisely as well as swiftly in
implementation of what is
relevant as political strategy in
the best interest of the future
hope of this country's political
freedom, economic
development and social
advancement for all the
Bahamian people.
SUGGESTED FUTURE
POLITICAL STRATEGY:
1) LEADERSHIP-The Free-
National Movement needs a
strong, forceful, dynamic
leadership, who can command
the respect of business interest
home and abroad, the
admiration of the middle class
segment and the affection of
the "grass root" voters. These
qualities are a rather difficult
combination to discover as
being maintained in any one
political personality but it is
essential for the success of
whoever takes on the mantle of
Opposition Leader. These
political characteristics are of
such political importance that
the Leader must gear himself
to acquire these if not already
possessing them prior to


1C) H'L D10k


leading the Opposition F.N.M.
into political victory. It would
be an immense public image if
the top strategists in the F.N.M.
work together as a united
team, assisting the Leader in
reshaping the organization's
public image. The Leader of
the F.N.M. must be that type
of individual who is capable of
reaching the political psychic
among the "grassroot". which
is by far the largest sector of
the Bahamian voting
population.
2) PARTY I XI ('UTIVIS
I he members of this team
should be elected from
nominees of the highest calibre
in the F.N.M. to ensure
o u t st anding executive
performance in meeting the
challenge presently facing this
political organization. The
executive body should never be
dominated by any one "class"
of members which would give
rise to the tendency of
alienating one of the important
voting sectors, but should
reflect the broad cross-section
of the country from which the
F.N.M. must draw its support
in order to become an
alternative to the present
mial-administration. The
F.N.M. officers, delegates.
committees, etc. should be
composed of a membership
which reflects the proportion
of this country's racial
composition to constantly
demonstrate sincerity of
purpose as an entity of racial
integration and thereby prove a
lie to the P.L.P.'s propaganda
that the F.N.M. is the Old
UI.B.P. dominated by local
whites. Those prominent
members of the I:.B.P. who are
presently supporters of the
F.N.M. should minimize their
effort of trying to control the
organization at the detriment
of P.L.P. racial propaganda in
poisoning the minds of
"grassroot" voters against this
party. The P.L.P.'s most
effective propaganda is the
"race issue" among the
nlajority of grassroot voters.
Even the ghost of the U.B.P.
helps to keep the '.L.P.
stronger in power, so the Old
U.B.P. members would he
assisting effectively in
destroying the P.L.P. power


But today I am as strongly opposed to absolute black rule as I
was to absolute while rule... and for the same reason. It is
un-Christian and, because it is un-Christian, it will in time destroy
itself.
********* .*****
It is unwise for obvious reasons.
The Bahamas is an entirely dependent territory with a
dangerously inflated economy.
The islands cannot hope to maintain a high standard of living
in an actively anti-white atmosphere....or even in an atmosphere
that pushes the white community into a corner because......
We must depend on "white money" from the oumtide to
support the economy. Already the country has experiencedI how
quickly money has shrunk since the P.L.P. government has made
its racial attitudes unmistakeablv clear.
And also because the bulk of the money in trade in the
Bahamas today is still controlled by the white Bahamian
minority....and will be for some time to come unless the
government decides to follow the suicidal pattern of Anlin i
Uganda and drive them all out....which would probably happen 11
the Vanguard ever came to power.
****************
I have said many times before and I repeat the conviclton in
this column today that unless and until the best elements in
both groups in the Bahamas learn to work together as equal
partners at the political level, no programme of reconstruction is
likely to succeed.
Because of their long background of experience in parliament
and business the white group in the Bahamas have knowledge to
contribute to the government of the country that it will take the
black community a long time- perhaps a generation t
acquire. These are things you don't learn in school, \ou kino .

The unfortunate thing in life is that the professional politician
keeps his ear to the ground. His business is votes....and his clict
concern is what the grass roots are thinking.
I was in politics but I have never claimed to be a successful
politician because I have never allowed my thinking to be
influenced by the emotional outbusts of untrained, inexperienced
people.
My duty in life is to point a way for these people. I don't want
their votes. I don't care if they don't like tie. All I know is thai.
if I give sound leadership....whether they like me or not.....they
will respect and trust me. And, eventually, even long after I aml
dead, hopefully they will find the right road that leads to the hivgh
goal of a united people under the fatherhood of one God.

There are so many useful lessons to be learned from lie Bible.
The greatest of them all is contained in the first chapter of
Genesis..... the first story in the first book in the Bible.
The record tells us that God almighty took six days to build
the world....and on the seventh day He rested.
It stands to reason that if the Lord took six days to create the
world, He could have done it in a single day. Indeed, "in the
twinkling of an eye".
But He tells us that lHe took six days to do the job. This tells us
that even God Almighty recognized that "all things come to hiti
who labours and learns to wait".

THOUGHTS FOR TODAY
Behold, I shew you a mystery:
We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed. In a
moment, in the twinkling of an eve, at the last trump. THE
FIRST EPISTLE OFPA UL TO THE EPHESIANS 15-8.

If we believe this, then we know that God could have created
the world out of a single thought, "in the twinkling of an eye".

structure by standing solidly
behind qualified black
politicians in the F.N.M. to
take the steam out of anyl
future "race-issue" resurrected
by the P.L.P. propaganda
organ. The F.N.M. executive
must be fully realistic about
this political fact, regardless of
how much it hurts or who it
hurts...race issue is the
strongest emotional wAeapon in
the P.L.P. political arsenal.

how small the Party's
membership ... the people

should have a voice through

branches should be fully
supported and kept in direct
contact with the centrall

respective representatives. No
supporter of this organization
should he left to feel neglected,
as if the\ are onl\ political
tools to be used at election
time. when these dedicated
supporters were so brave and
showered with st sweet
compliments during the
election fever. T I e Party
Branch is an essential cell for
the political machinery in this
era of Party Pohlitis. The
F.N.M. must be more than a
"Paper-Party" in order to he a
meaningful political force in
this new nation-state. Ihis

establish a new political
publication in order to publicly
debate the current politiLal,
economic and social issues on a
regular basis both for Pairt
supporters as well as publit
information exposing the
iral-administration of the

as a matter of public forum to
the Bahamian people. In
Jamaica both the government
and the opposition constantly
speak to the nation on
controversial public issues
apart from election debates,
why can't the same thing be
accommodated here in another
Commonwealth Parliamentar\
democracy? Perhaps the
Opposition here needs to
continue the agitation for this
additional form of democratic
expression to demonstrate the
political maturing of the new
Bahamian nation. The t.l.M.
party branches should he
encouraged to hold systematic
branch meetings and social
fund raising activities to
encourage political
participation during election
intervals.
5) DIALO(;UF & PitBIAC
PARTICIPATION The Frcc
National Movement leadership
(Opposition Leader and top
Executives of the central l
Council) should be on
scheduled cross country
visiting tours at planned
political occasions apart trom
election fever' which oi:ulId be
aimed at encouraging as nuch
membership participation in
the education of citizen rights


and privileges for healthy
democratic expression
regardless of political rivalry so
there can be a challenge to the
dark cloud of tear presently
descending on tlie country
with regard to expression of
the individual's opinions
publicly. The average supporter
of the Free National Moveiment
must have a feeling of
"belonging to and accepted
by'' the organization's policy
makers. This is an important
area where the l'Prt. needs to
improve its political posture
through closer dialoliue and
involvement of tihc Imass
supporters.

The older voters will continue
to become disenchanted with
the die-hards remaining blindly
loyal while the young people in
their political, economic and
social frustration reach out for
a new alternative to the
corrupt P.L.P. regime ... hence
experimentation with new
ideology of Marxist-Socialism,
which would be Bahamianized
by the emerging Vanguard
Nationalist Socialist Party,
given more time of national
decay, if theF.N.M. fails to
perform its proper role in the
preservation of democracy. If
allowed to and when the
Vanguard Nationalist Socialist
Party emerge as an effective
political entity in this nation
that would be the end of
capitalist free enterprise, if not
already destroyed slowly by
the inept P.L.P. administration
under the direction of the
Deputy Prime Minister who has
proven a genius for
destruction.
Will the Free National
Movement accept the challenge
and make a new bid to save
this nation and in effect all of
us?
Will the Free National
Movement give new hope and
determination to young
Bahamians like the author of
this political document?
Will the Free National
Movement continue to create
despair through its inaction


and disunity ... hence a
Constitutional Dictatorship by
default of an effective
Opposition?
History will record the
results, depending on the
response to this honest
political exposition of the
present trend of politics in the
Commonwealth of the Bahama
Islands.
This political paper was
inspired by a deep desire to
avert eventual political,
economic and social disaster
for this nation if the present
trend is not challenged and
checked, therefore must not be
considered as a personal attack
on any specific personality but
rather deep self-introspection
of the Free National Movement
as a meaningful political entity
for a new beginning in a new
nation.

are capable and willing to do
what should be done now in
stemming the slow but sure
tide of tyranny under the
disguise of the "people's

It does not take deep

that the P.L.P. has the
necessary potential for a

Opposition and political

You think we got tourists?


Just look at the mail we get!

ONE OF THE BIG PROBLEMS encountered by the Bahamas post office as result of this
country's tourist-oriented structure, is the number of visitors who persist in affixing U.S. postage
to items mailed from here.


This was disclosed by
Transport Minister Darrell
Rolle in an address to the
National Association of
Greeting Card Publishers, held
recently at the Xanadu Princess
Hotel, Freeport.
Mr. Rolle also provided
some statistics on the quantity


of mail flowing in and out of
the Bahamas yearly.
lie said that the total
number of letter items mailed
in the Bahamas in 1972 was
I1,444.554.
Of this number 76 percent
was sent by air mail and 79 per

overseas items, 95 per cent
was air mail. Air mail sent to
the United States was about 65
per cent of the total overseas
air mail.
Concerning incoming mail,
that from overseas is in the
following approximate
proportion, Mr. Rolle said:
USA, 45 per cent; United
Kingdom, 25 per cent; Canada,
15 per cent, and other places
15 per cent.
About 122 million items are
received annually. The
proportion -of surface mail
received is slightly higher than
that posted, mainly because of
newspapers, magazines,
catalogues and similar items
sent from industrialized
countries.
Within the Bahamas, the
number of items posted
annually is 2,183,000 of which
10 per cent is air mail.
The Minister noted the
disparity between picture
postcards mailed from the
Bahamas and greeting cards.
lie said 227,000 greeting
cards were posted annually
compared to 1,876,000 picture
postcards.
It was not surprising,
however, when one considered
the Bahamas's pre-eminence as
a tourist destination.

ROW OVER LAW OF SEA
CONFERENCE AS
TO SITE & TIME
UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (AP)
The U.N. General Assembly's
main political committee begins a
week of debate today on whether
the long-planned conference on the
law of the sea should be held this
winter and, if held, whether
decisions must be unanimous.
Japan and the Soviet bloc want
to postpone the parley. Others
favour starting it in November as
the 1972 General Assembly agreed.
The political committee also is to
consider whether to limit the
conference to members of the
United Nations and related agencies
or to invite North Vietnam.
The biggest fight is likely over
whether the conference will take
decisions by voting or by
consensus, which would require
unanimity. This would allow the
United States, the Soviet Union,
Britain and other major powers to
veto decisions unfavourable to their
interests.
The Americans' chief fear is that
the Latin Americans, supported by
China and last month's nonaligned
summit conference in Algiers, will
get the sea law parley to draft a
treaty giving coastline countries
exclusive fishing rights for 200
miles offshore.
The Soviet Union wants to
restrict territorial waters to a
70-mile limit. The United States is
willing to negotiate for a larger
zone, but says 200 miles is too
much.

She called him 'Bob'_


husband Joe got upset


By Abigail Van Buren
S1973 I t cuhi Tritti-Ni. Y. M syt., ic.
DEAR ABBY: I am a 25-year-old mother of five boys
ranging from 7 years old, down to 20 months. I am happily
married, or at least I WAS until this unexplainable thing
happened.
About three months ago, my husband and I were talk-
ing, and I said: "That's what you think, Bob." [His name
is Joe.]
He asked me who "Bob" was, and I honestly couldn't
give him an answer. I don't know any Bob, and I don't
recall one who meant a thing to me.
I swear to you, Abby, I don't know what made me call
my husband "Bob."
He keeps bringing it up. I'm sure he thinks there must
be a "Bob" in my life. There isn't. How can I convince
him? And can you give me one good reason why I called
Joe "Bob?" INNOCENT
DEAR INNOCENT: Bob Is a very common name, and
there are lots of Bobs bobbing around on TV and radio and
in the newspaper. Don't let it bother you. With five boys
under seven, you could have unconsciously been thinking of
bibs, boobs, or babes.
DEAR ABBY: My husband is a clergyman. He does the
least amount of work he can. Some days he stays in bed
until 1:00 p. m. When people call for him I have to lie and
say he's "out." His laziness irritates me.
I work hard for the church, teaching Sunday school,
working with the auxiliary, and helping with study groups.
We've been married for over 30 years, and our children
are gone. They seldom come home because their father is
so hard to get along with. He never converses; he lectures.
He monopolizes every conversation, contradicts everyone,
and tells me not to express any opinions in public because
I'm stupid.
I can't ask anyone for help with my problem because it
would ruin my husband's image. Besides I wouldn't want
anyone to know what kind of person he is.
I've secretly considered leaving him, but a divorced

Rupert on Chariot Island-19


The soft sand breaks Rupert's fall and he is
none the worse for the abrupt end to his
journey. "Whew, at least I am on dry land,"
he murmurs. "But what is this place? And
how do I get back to Sandy Bay?" Beside
him lies the Speedweed, now as limp as a
strip of ordinary seaweed. It only moves when


it is in the water," says Rupert to himself.
Gathering his wits, he makes his way along
the shore wondering what he will find in the
next bay. Reaching a rocky outcrop he pauses,
now alert. I can hear voices," he breathes.

Quite right. West counts

to good defence. He cannot be

When East comes in with the

Rupert on Chariot Island-20


Peering round the rocks Rupert looks down
on another bay. Below him some sea-faring
men have left their galleon moored offshore
and are landing in a rowboat. Who are they ? "
whispers Rupert. If they're friendly perhaps
they will help me." He decides to wait awhile
before making himself known, and as the men
trudge to higher ground he presses back


against the cl.ff to keep out of sight. Two of
the men stop within earshot. "The crew grow
restless, Captain," says one. "They have
voyaged long enough." "I will tell them to be
of good heart," replies the other. "We have
reached our goal now that we are here. It is
called Chariot Island."

Undefeated Fox Hill Saints'


rookies roll over Reef squad

By Gladstone Thurston
ROOKIE GUARD REUBIN KNOWLES and veteran forward
Kermit "Par" Rolle teamed up for a total of 50 points last night
leading the undefeated Fox Hill Saints Containers to a 123-80
victory over the unsettled Reef Basketball Club.


Coming from the Saints
junior squad where he picked
up the "most valuable player
award" Knowles last night
scored 12 of his 23 from the
field and three of six from the
free throw to lead the Saints
with 27 points. Rolle, who also
collected a game high of 17
rebounds, went 10 for 19 and
three for four making up his
total of 23.
Julian Edgecomne, formerly
of Ramsey's Blazers, this
season took residence with the
Saints and last night
contributed 16 rebounds and
12 points to their victory. He
missed nine of fifteen from the
field.
Unsettled in their play
during the opening minutes of
the first half, numerous
turnovers plagued the Reef and
the Saints untilizing this ran to
a 24-18 lead within the first 11
minutes.
Rookie forward Kevin Rolle
also coming in from the
Saints junior gave valuable
rebounding assistance to Rolle
as the Saints opened up 45-35.
Kevin ended the game with 17
points and 11 rebounds.
Carrying Reef through those
rugged moments in the first
half was the sharp shooting of
former coach Colin Knowles
and the strong rebound of
six-foot four Rudy Levarity.
Knowles contributed 12 in the
first half. Levarity had ten.
With Eric Mackey carrying a
hot pace though they seemed
unable to express themselves as
they would like Reef
momentarily broke the Saints'
ten point gap moving four
within the lead.
However, the swiftness and
accuracy of guards Reggie
Demeritte and Knowles with
Kevin and Rolle playing top
ball, saw the Reefers trailing
57-40 by the end of the first
half. Demeritte scored 14 in
the first half. Knowles also had
14.
The Reef in the second half
gave no indication of any


ability to stop the Saints and
Edgecombe coming through
with 12 and Knowles adding
another 13 gave them a 43
point victory their second in
as many played. Last week
Tuesday, the Saints defeated
Bain's Town 109-53.

PINDERS EASY WIN
Van Ferguson burned twelve
from the field and two from the
free throw line while rookie Danny
Edgecombe tossed in another
eleven from the field leading
Pinder's Basketball Club to a
107-40 triumph over Bain Town
last night at the C. I. Gibson Gym.
Following last night's victory in
which the rookies displayed superb
defense, coach Steve Pinder was
convinced that "with the kind of
defense we got, that should give us
the pennant."
With John Todd Pinder's
assistant taking over the coaching
duties through the first half
Pinder's immediately took the lead
and increased 29-16 within 12
minutes of play.
Basil "Mossah" Burns scored 12
in thier first half lead of 22 points.
Walter Major scored 10.
Ferguson who settled for seven
in the first half tossed in a superb
19 as Pinder's gradually pulled
away from their opponents. Adding
to Pinder's second half rally was a
12 point performance by rookie
forward Harvey Roker and 14 more
coming from Edgecombe.

Southerners in run feast


on way to KO Cup final

SOUTHERNERS
BHAMAS CRICKET ASSOCIATION'S League Champions, the
Southerners, stormed into the final of the BCA Knockout 30-over
Cup Competition Sunday when they smashed the Paradise attack
to all corners of Windsor Park to set a record total of 158 for the


KO Cup.
A pugnacious 73 from hard
hitting Southerners right-hander
Harry Dean paved the way for
the Champion's total of 158 in
30 overs.
Dean delighted fans as he
gaily drove, hooked and cut
the Paradise attack to ribbons.
James Peterson 19 and Basil
Hall 18 gave Dean good
support.
Colin Dean emerged from
the Southerners onslaught with
5 for 39 in six overs.
Paradise batsman Guinea
Yearwood led Paradise in a
gallant run chase with a well
struck 63 but unfortunately'
found no real support in his
fellow batsmen and Paradise
were eventually out for 116 in
the last over, 42 runs behind
the big Southerners total.
in the ot. er semi-final, St.
Bernards, three times winners
of the KO Cup, had little


difficulty in disposing of the
Police at St. Bernards Park.
Batting first the Police were
soon in trouble against the
fiery St. Bernard opening
attack of Peter Bethel and
Wardy Ford, who at the end of
their allotted six overs each,
left the Police reeling at 40 for
5.
Police skipper Edmund
Lewis, going in with the score
at 37 for 3 seemed to be
restoring order for his side but
was caught behind driving at
Wardy Ford just as he was
beginning to plain the St.
Bernards attack with his
customary authority.
With the departure of Lewis
the Police struggled to 64 and
St. Bernards cruised to a'four
wicket victory with 10 overs to
spare.
The final of the KO ('up will
be played next Saturday.
