TAXI UNION

SOUNDS STERN


WARNING TO

GOVERNMENT
FREEPORT ,me ..as
Taxi-Cab Cooperative Union,
disgruntled over the
"unfairness" of the Road
Traffic Authority in its
dealings with the union,
warned Thursday that "if the
Government does not think
about us, we may have to
resort back to 1958," the year
of the taxi-cab strike in Nassau.
"Members of the Taxi Union
feel that we have had more
problems over the past four
years than we have had since
the commencement of the
union."
That was the message
delivered to delegates at the
PLP convention at the Holiday
Inn by union president Richard
Moss. The union is an affiliate
S member of ihe party.
"As far as the Taxi Union
members are concerned," Mr.
Moss declared, "all is not well.
"'1 wo conventions ago I
S heard delegates from the
f family islands warn the
Government about certain
appointti hoards taking
advantage of I'LPs in the
respective islands. I would like
to tell this convention that
appointed boards in Nassau are
doing the same thing."
Mr. Moss recalled that
dJrinag the 1970 convention lie
had mentioned that the Road
Traffic Authority, under
cha:rian Edwin Colbey. "was
S ,-my unfair" to the union.
DOING WORSE
"Three years later this same
S department, headed by the
same chairman, is doing worse.
..'.. say if notlhiiii is di ..
quickly about this department,
embarrassment would come
upon the Government.
"We are not going to staid
idly by and see our rights he
taken away and be given to
persons who didn't help the
PLP' when they were struggling
by the wayside.
"We don't want to think
about 1958, but if the
Government does not think )of
us we may have to resort back
to 1958."
Mr. Moss complained that
when during the past year he
learned that a bus company
owned by Daniel Knowles was
competing with taxis on
Prince George Wharf for tour
jobs, and he visited the Road
Traffic Authority seeking
information, "the chairman
plainly told me I had no
questions to ask him and to get
out of his office.
"The members of the
Taxi-Cab Union believe and
can prove that there is
unfairness in the board of the
Road Traffic Authority," he
added.
lie also complained on
behalf of union members about
Government's apparent lack of
action on the union's
suggestion last year that the
"Act" insurance policies be
either improved or done away
with.

By MIKE LOTHIAN
FREEPORT A four-point programme to make the Bahamas
"a truly great maritime nation" by taking advantage of the
country's investment incentive and its strategic location on major i


commercial shipping lanes was
Minister Darrell E. Rolle.
the Minister foresaw the
exploitation of the nation's

convention delegates and Pl I'
supporters in tlie lIn depel ndence
Ilall "few realise that the
Bahamias is crisscrossed by
some of the busiest, most
important commercial shipping

Iie drew attention to the
Gulf Stream to the west of
Bimini through which all ships
travelling between the east and

remanded in custody until
Monday morning by Chief
Magistrate Wilton Hercules
after pleading guilty to falsely
obtaining credit from a Nassau
hotel where they stayed.
The girls, Marchell Lee and
Deborah Ann Wright, both 22,
requested they be allowed time
to contact relations at home in
the U.S. who would pay off
their $376.42 Nassau Beach
Hotel bill.
Prosecuting Inspector
Hugh Burke told the court
Friday the pair ought to be
refused bail on grounds that
police were investigating other

Lee and Wright arrived her'-
on October II intending to

Checking in at the hotel, he
said they paid up their first

without checking out at the
front desk.
Police were contacted, he
said, and as a result members
of the Commercial Crime
Division saw and interviewed
them.
In the two statements given
police, they said they came
here intending to split their
bills, each paying part. They
accused each other of not
holding to the promise.
One of them. Lee, also
known as Mrs. Stevenson, had
stated to police that a talk with
the hotel's accountant revealed
that the security department
had made a complaint about

PROPOSALS
Mr. Rolle went on to outline
his proposals for iaritinme

background of the nation's
advantageous locations on key
trading routes.
lie said there are now over
'200 ti'iker in the world over

"Among oiur few natural

ofi water r depth available within
a mile off shore, and several of
these locations are well
protected from the prevailing
weather.
"1 Ihe Bahamas," he
continued, "is presently one of
only four locations on or just
off the North American
continent that has the
deep-draft berthing facilities"
to accommodate the 200,000
DWT super-tankers.
lie said super-tank.-rs are
regularly delivering oil to the
Bahamass Oil Refining
companyy in Freeport, and
when the Bahamas
Governinent/B urnmah Oil
re-transhipment terminal is
completed at South Riding
Rock, Grand Bahama in
mid-1974, "tankers of up to
400,000 I)W I will discharge to

Government is presently
considering proposals for the
construction of other
deep-water ports in the
Bahamas.

The Transport Minister went
on to say that with the number
of large tankers that are and

Bahamas, in addition to cruise
ships and other commercial

DARRELL ROLE
... 'a new future'

MAYNARD

REELECTED
FREF POR] The
admin istration of PLP
chairman Andrew "Dl)ud"
Maynard won a convincing
vote of confidence from PLP
convention delegates who
returned for second terms all
the members of last year's slate
who offered for re-election.
There was some slight
change in the hierarchy as
officers on the lower levels
moved up to fill the gap left by
the death earlier this year of
first vice chairman George
Sands. Besides Mr. Sands, the
only one of last year's officers
not seeking a second term was
third vice chairman Sidn'
Wilson.
Mr. Maynard was returned
to the chairmanship in
elections late Friday night by a
163-127 vote over David
Alfred Butler.
James Otis Brown, last year
elected second vice chairman
but acting during most of the
year in Mr. Sand's position.
was endorsed as first vice
chairman over challenger
Neville Wisdom by a landslide
256-30.
Everette Archer, who was
fourth vice chairman last year,
moved up two rungs when he
polled 144 votes for the second
vice chairmanship, defeating
Russell Franks (122) mnd
Lester Mortimer 123).
One of the two newcomers
to the PLP administration is
Fernley Palmer, who was
unopposed during nominations
Wednesday for the third vice
chairmanship.
The second new face on the
executive is J.L. Thompson,
who polled 194 votes over
David Bethel's 96 to become
fourth vice chairman.
Incumbent secretary general
Clenwith Dean and incumbent
treasurer Joseph Sweeting were
also unopposed for re-election
during the nominations on
Wednesday.
Thelma Lockhart was
returned for a second year as
assistant secretary general
Friday when she polled 180
votes to Sean McWeeney's 91
and David Clarke's 15.
Assistant treasurer Percy
Munnings was returned also on
a 209-71 vote over challenger
Rudolph King.
The elections were
concluded shortly after one
o'clock Saturday morning, and
debate on 17 outstanding
resolutions kept the delegates
at the Holiday Inn's
Independence Hall until after 2
a. m .

seaside got a heavy beating as
did some of the smaller
wooden docks and jetties.
On the western foreshore,
waves this morning were light
enough to swim in.
CHANGED PATH
The Met Office says the
effects of Gilda were reduced
because it changed path in the
early evening and never
increased to the anticipated
strength.
At 3 p.m. yesterday the
storm, which was originally
headed due north, veered
northeast, bringing it closest to
New Providence at 5 p.m. At 9
p.m. it shifted again to east
north cast and winds began
lessening through the night.
The maximum wind at the
airport was 38 m.p.h., although
residents on the eastern road
experienced gusts up to 50
m.p.h. in the afternoon.
This morning the Met Office
reported the storm between
the southern tip of Eleuthera
and north Cat Island. It was
expected to pass over the
northern tip of Cat Island as it
moves out to sea.
The 10 p.m. Met. Office
bulletin last night said
hurricane warnings were being
discontinued throughout the
Bahamas and no further
bulletins would be issued. Gale
warnings, however, remained in
force today for the Exuma
Cays, Fleuthera and Cat Island
I areas.


At noon today Gilda was
centred near latitude 25.0
degrees north; longitude 75.5
degrees west or 100 miles a
little south of due east of
Nassau and 25 miles
north-northeast of the
northern tip of Cat Island
moving northeast at about 8
m.p.h.
50 M.P.H. WINDS
From the AUTEC base at
Andros, Commander Raymond
Reffitt, officer in charge,
reported that the base
sustained no damage ... "not
even trees down." The storm
passed over the southern
portion of Andros yesterday.
Winds at Fresh Creek
reached their peak at 5 p.m.
when they increased to a
maximum of 50 m.p.h., he
said.
Bahamasair began moving its
four aircraft back from Miami
this morning. The first of its
two BAC-l I Is arrived with
passengers at 10.15 a.m. and
was due to depart for Freeport
at 10.30 a.m.
AIRCRAFT BACK
The second BAC-111 and
two F-27s were expected in
before noon. Flights to the Out
Islands will be resumed as
weather permits. Bahamasair
was hopeful it would be able to
begin service to the south
eastern Bahamas this evening.
Other airlines were operating
normally.
The cruise ships Bahama
Star, Emerald Seas and Flavia
were due in port at 12.30 p.m.
from Miami, about four hours
behind schedule. The Song of
Norway and the Nordic Prince
will be putting into port
tomorrow as usual.
Little change is expected in
the weather over the eastern
Caribbean during the next two
days.

'SAVAGELY BEATEN' VICTIM

AT FREEPORT RECOVERING
A YOUNG Canadian teacher was released from Miontreal's
Neurological Institute in "good condition" after being "savagely"
beaten on the "Ruby" golf course, Freeport, on August 3.


The beating of Brian
Page,25, of Montreal, on a
short holiday with his wife to
Freeport, was the second golf
course attack to take place at
that island this year. In April a
young Canadian doctor on a
week's golfing holiday at
Freeport was held up on the
eighth tee of Lucayan Country
Club's golf course by four
masked men, one of whom was
armed. A scuffle followed and
the doctor was injured by his
own golf club. His scalp wound
had to be stitched.
Young Page, who had
arrived in Freeport a few days
before, was playing golf with
his wife. "It was a hot day," a
friend told The Tribune, "and
so his wife went in after having
played about nine holes." lie
said Page was by himself at the
15th tee. He was putting when
a man approached him and hit
him on the "head with a
hammer about eight times."
The beating was described as
"savage."
A police spokesman said
today that a "piece of wood"
and not a hammer was used in
the beating.
Page's friend told The
Tribune that the young man
was robbed of $50. However,
police say the amount was
unknown as Page's wife was
not certain how much her
husband had in his wallet.
BRAINS OUT
The young man was left for
dead on the golf course "with a
part of his brain coming out
of his head." According to
medical reports the frontal
lobe of the brain was "badly
damaged."
He was operated on by Dr.
Charles Clinton-Thomas at the
Rand Memorial Hospital. Five
days later he was flown to the
Neurological Institute in
Montreal.
"In a year's time doctors


will try to replac,- thef '- ne"
that Dr. Clinton-Thomas had
to remove from Page's head,
the father reported in a call to
Freeport.
The beating took place at
the King's lii i(Golf course,
better known in Freeport as
the "Ruby golf course." The
course, which is owned by the
Princess Hotels, is used by
visitors to the Kinr's Inn, the
International Hotel and the
Xanadu.
Police are investigating. l'age
was able to give a description
of his assailant.


Rollins Barr and Talbot
Shernian of Lowe Sound,
Andros, left on a crawfishiqg
trip Wednesday aboard a
13-foot Boston Whaler and
have not been heard from
since.
The men were due back in
port Thursday afternoon.
A green and white
'.ingle-engined Cessna 172 (N
46575) is missing on a flight
from Orlando to Nassau via
West Palm Beach and Freeport.
Aboard are pilot Jim Kuhne
and three passengers, all
believed to be high school
students.
The plane was reported lost
at 8:55 Thursday morning. An
extensive U.S. Coast Guard and
BASRA search has failed to
find any trace of the aircraft.
IN STORM PATH
An American 40-foot fishing
boat The Gator, described as
blue with white trim, has been
missing since Thursday evening
in the vicinity of Green Cay
and High Point Cay, on the
southeast coast of Andros an
area directly in the path of
Tropical Storm Gilds.
The boat, with Captain
Farre and three crew aboard,
was one of a fleet of 12 fishing
boats out of Miami that left.

radio is out of order, BASRA
said.
Two Nassau men, Henry
McDonald and Joseph Davis,
are still missing after their
dinghy capsized aDout
one-and-half miles east of New
Providence at 4:30 p.m
Thursday.
The two were fishing at the
time. A search by BASRA had
to be discontinued at dark and
could not be resumed until
today because of bad weather.
The freighter Grand Turk,
operated by Farrington's, was
believed lost or in distress
yesterday when it failed to
arrive from Miami. The ship
put into port at about II
o'clock last night.


FNM slam PLP'confession


of failure' on Bahamasair

THE STATEMENT by To,'rism a.nd Av:ion Mii;Nci Ci i-,e.t
Maynard to the effect that the oper.ioun of Bahamasair was
"appalling" is "yet another confession of failure" by the PLP
Government, the FNM charged today.


Some people might like to
forget. but there was a time
when the country had a
well-run national air carrier in
Bahamans Airways. ;iin FNM
press release said. "I hie
operators of that airline were
prepared and lid, in fact. put
up millions of dollars of their
own money to expand and
improve the airline, offering
the Government ownership
participation when the airline
became a proitaiblh concern or
at any- time the G(.t'iViiemint
desired.
"But once .1gmain tiht.'i
du ilicity ol the PL P
Government brought about a
shattering of conlftiencic and
the collapse of Bahamas
Airways." said the FNM. The
Government promised the
Bahamian people, in the words
of one of their Ministers. "I'Th
greatest airline in the world".

SHOCKING
"Now we get the shocking

problems besetting the airline.
If that is so then the
responsibility must again be
laid at the feet of those at the
top, especially the Minister and
his Government."
It was not right and it is not
lair to attempt to place the
blame on the previous
management of the airline, said
the FNM. The management did
a good job of running Out
Island Airways before the
Government got into the act
and presented them with an
almost unmanageable situation.
"The Government has been
warned over and repeatedly
about dabbling in the airline
business but they have

Teenager


gets life


for 'Satan


slaying'

DELAND, Fla. (AP) The
alleged teenaged high priest of
a Satan cult has been sentenced
to life in prison for the torture
slaying of a California youth.
Circuit Judge Uriel Bount
sentenced David Hester. 17. of
Greenville, S.C., to life on the
recommendation of a jury.
Under Florida law, the
verdict and sentencing in
capital cases are decided
separately by the jury, but the
judge is not bound to accept
the decision.
The jury of nine women and
three men deliberated for 70
minutes before handing down
the recommendation.
The State asked for the
death penalty when Hester was
convicted of killing Ross
Michael Cochran, 17, of
Fresno.
Witnesses at the trial told
how Cochran was tortured
during a Satanic ceremony last
April 23 and then taken to a
wooded area near Daytona
Beach where he was clubbed to
death.
Police said Cochran was
flogged with chains and slashed
with broken glass.
Hester, described as the High
Priest or Warlock of the cult,
denied killing Cochran and said
he hit him with a lug to knock
him unconscious and track
other members of the cult into
thinking the youth was dead.
Defense Attorney Donald
Jacobson called the act the
"only decent think" in Hester's
life.
lie said members of the
group who testified against
Hester in return for reduced
charges "told just enough of
the truth required to pay for
their deals with the state."

Good news

for papers
BOSTON (AP) More than
250 newspaper piblhshers have
been told that the current
shortage of newsprint will be
over next year but that they
should expect the price of
newsprint to increase.
The comments were made
by Howard Hart, president of
the Canadian Pulp and Paper
Asso citation, before the
inter-American Press
Association.
Hart said that Canada, the
world's largest supplier of
newsprint, would have had
little difficulty meeting current
demands "were it not for a
series of crippling
strikes." He added that
newsprint is "one of the
world's most undervalued

TEL AVIV (AP) Defense
Minister Moshe Dayan says
Israel will not allow Egypt to
keep any territory it has gained
in the Middle East war.
In an interview shown today
on the state television, Dayan
said the Israelis did not rule
out discussions on a cease-fire
but should not ask for one.
"This was is too bitter and
intense to last long," he said.
"It will not last years or

-High hopes in Grenada-

CHARLOTTE AMALIE, St. Thomas (AP) Premier
Eric Gairy of Grenada has said he expects his country to
benefit economically from independence.
Grenada, a British associated state, will become
independent Feb. 7, 1974. The Government official, who
travelled to the U.S. Virgin Islands to address the Nevis
Benevolent Society, pointed out that his island's principal
industry was agriculture.
He added, however, that his Government planned to
promote "selective" tourism.
Gairy, who is in his fifth term as head of Government,
said a number of investors with "substantial financial
backing" also have been exploring the country for its
business and industrial potential since independence was
announced.
The premier added: "I have confidence in the people and
I have confidence in myself."
Gairy praised his homeland lavishly, calling it "the gem
of the west" and "the loveliest island in the world."
He said he hopes to see Grenada become a member of
the Caribbean Common Market by next year and also will
apply for membership in the United Nations.

lie added: "I am not yet
ready to say that the same
thing will happen as happened
to the Syrians on the Golan
Heights that we will chase
them (The Egyptians)
westward from the Suez
Canal."
More important, the Defense
Minister said, is that the Israelis
should be left holding a
straight line, either at the canal
or elsewhere, and thus in the
best position to win any future
conflict.
On the question of the
cease-fire, he said Israel's
policy should be not to request
one but to be prepared to
discuss a truce with the Arabs
"If the conditions are right."
right."
But he said he did not think
a cease-fire was at hand
because of the Arab's fatalistic
attitude "even if we were
sitting in Damascus and Cairo
they would not ask us for
peace," he claimed.
A terse communique
broadcast by Damascus Radio
said: "In retaliation for enemy
attacks on some of our
economic targets and
installations, our Air Force
bombed this morning the oil
refinery in Haifa."
The communique apparently
referred to Israeli air and naval
attacks on oil depots at the
port of Tartous, Syria's oil
refinery at Horns, in the central
part of the country, and its


pipeline terminal at Banias, on
the Mediterranean coast.
The Syrian oil installations
have been hit several times by
Israel jets and naval gunboats.
The last air attack on Syrian oil
installations at Tartous, also on
the coast, occurred four days
ago.
The Haifa oil refinery is not
actually in the city of Haifa
but four miles north of the
Israeli port. It is believed to be
the largest oil refinery in Israel.
There was no mention of the
raid in Israeli military
communiques, but reports
from Israel's Mediterranean
resort at Nahariya, near the
refinery, said a Syrian Mig was
shot down there this morning.
It crashed into a house and
injured a woman, according to
the Israeli Military Command.
Egypt said today it had
inflicted "heavy losses in lives
and equipment" on Israeli
forces in two days of fighting
in the Central Sinai desert
front.
An Egyptian communique
broadcast by Cairo radio said
Israeli losses included 85 tanks,
56 halftracks and the capture
of several tank crews.

8 DIE AS TRUCK CRASHES


BORDENTOWN, NJ (AP) -
A tractor-trailer truck swerved

smashing into a greyhound bus.
Police said eight persons
were killed and 13 were
injured.
William W. Warlow, Jr.. 21,
the driver of the truck, said a
blow-out caused his vehicle to
go out of control.
The truck crossed the centre

other three victims were
believed to be a father and son
who were riding in the car
which had a West Virginia
registration.
The eighth victim was
described only as a black


woman of about 50.
Police initially quoted
witnesses as saying that the
truck hit the bus first and that
the private car plowed into the
wreckage.

KIDNAP EXECUTIVE FREED


BUENOS AIRES (AP) -
Police freed a kidnapped
British executive of the
Nobleza Tobacco Company
after two abductors were
trapped when they tried to
pick up a $300,000 ransom.
David George Heywood, 37.
had been held since Sept. 21,
when a group of men forced
him to enter a car just outside
his suburban home in Olivos.
Police said two men had
tried to take the money, which
had been left at a site near
Hey wood's home.
As soon as the men tried to
take the money, police chased
them and a subsequent
gunbattle ended when the
kidnappers' cars crashed into a
building.
Heywood was quickly freed
after the men confessed that
the British financial manager
was being held in Merlo, some
20 miles northwest of the
capital. lie was found in good
condition.
Neither police nor the


management of Nobleza, a
subsidiary of the
B ritish-American Tobacco
company, had officially
acknowledged the kidnapping.
The president of the
company, Fra ncis V
Brimicombe, was kidnapped
and released in April in
exchange for a large ransom. It
was not officially disclosed but
reports at the time said the
ransom was more than
$1,500,000.
Heywood, married and with
two children, moved from
England about one year ago,
sources said.

How ghosts are made

By ETIENNE DUPUCH
IN THIS column recently I told a story about being trapped in
an elevator at my hotel in Coral Gables.
In reply to a question as to whether I was afraid I told a story
about two men who were hunting racoons in a .graveyard in
Florida when they fell into an open grave.
This story, which had a ghostly twist, caused a great deal of
amusement. .
Ghost stories are always popular but the Bahamas has become
too "civilized" for ghost stories today. This is a pity because
these stories have a flavour all their own.

..You may recall the story I told about a press that we installed
at The Tribune. It was a complicated machine. This press gave so
much trouble that it almost beat me. I was ready to quit.
Before we installed that machine I used to write three stories
every night while my wife was preparing supper. They came
easy....and I dashed them off in quick time.
One story was a political column under the caption "Political
Backehat" with the by-line "Vitriol". The second story was a
personality column about successful Bahamians. The third was a
ghost story.
To produce a personality column and a ghost story a writer
needs to be in a light humour. This press knocked all the humour
out of me....and I have never written a ghost story since.
After reading the short graveyard story I used to end my
elevator experience a friend asked me whether I really believe in
ghosts.
I definitely believe in a spirit world but I cannot say that I
believe in ghosts. I have never seen a ghost....and so I don't know.
I grew up at a time in the Bahamas when ghosts were very real
to most people. Friends met at night to swap their latest
experience with ghosts. Most of them claimed to have had
encounters with "sperrids".
At night in the Out Islands the villagers gathered around a large
fire. The one topic of conversation....sperrids.
Boy, I'll tell you....they told some wonderful stories. Best part
of it....they believed they were true. That's what made them seem
so real.

But ghosts.... .and the imagination needed to create these
visionary figures....thrive only in the dark. They disappeared with
the introduction of the electric light to Nassau.
I will tell you a story to show how ghost stories were made
when the island was enveloped in darkness.

About 50 years ago I was friendly with a family who lived in
the Fort Fincastle area.
A young boy of this family spent the afternoon at my house
on the site now occupied by The Tribune He stayed for supper
and night overtook him there.
When the time came for him to go home he seemed to be
nervous and I realized that he was afraid to go home in the dark. I
decided to go with him.
The Queen's Staircase better known as Sixty Six Steps. was
a shortcut to his house.
As we approached the road leading to the Steps I suggested
that we should take the short cut. tie was terrified at the thought.
At the time the Morgue then known as the Dead House at
the hospital was on this road. Also on the hilltop east of the Steps
was the Mental Home then known as the Crazy House.
This road was unlighted and only the most daring ventured
into this ghostly valley after dark. But I wanted to give this boy
courage and so I persuaded almost shamed him into taking
the short cut. I have never been afraid of the dark.

I watched him as we got deeper and deeper into this dark
valley with high cliffs towering on both sides.
He was really tense. He was walking like a horse I brought from
the Forest, Exuma. This horse had only known dirt paths until he
hit the paved streets of Nassau. I had trouble to control him as he
tried to get all four feet off this hard road at the same time.
That's the way my little friend was walking. I realized that at
the crack of a twig he would take off.
Everything went well until we got almost opposite the Dead
House. I saw it first. It was the shadow of a headless man
S crouched against the wall on the western side of the valley.
I talked fast hoping that we could pass this scary appearance


without my young friend seeing it.
As we got opposite the mysterious figure he saw it. Had he
seen it earlier he would certainly have turned back to the lighted
main road. But he sprang forward. This put the "thing" behind
him and so he had no choice. He almost literally flew over the
Steps.
I stopped to see what it was all about and found that the
"thing" was a drunken man who had fallen against the rock in a
way that concealed his head.

I continued to my young friend's house because I felt I had to
explain to his parents what had happened. I didn't see my little
friend. I got the impression that he was hiding under his mother's
bed.
On the way back to my house I took the long way down East
S Street and up Shirley Street.
Very few people were on these streets after dark in those days
and so I went down the road laughing uproariously.
S As I approached Zion Baptist Church a couple were coining
from the opposite direction. They must have thought I was an
escaped lunatic. They shied away to the opposite side of the
street and so I had to tell them what had happened.
They were interested. In an island where nothing of great
interest ever happened any kind of story to break the monotony
was welcomed.

And then my turn came to jump. Overhanging the iron fence
enclosing the grounds of Addington House, residence of the
S Church: of England bishop, was a dense growth of bamboo trees.
S A person standing against this fence was completely concealed
from view. Whei It reached this spot I was still laughing.
S. Suddenlyout of the darkness stepped a headless giant, solidly


SMEARED-


Hopes & dreams buried under avalanche


LYNDEN PINDLING can be accused of being dictatorial
as a leader. He can be accused of being ineffective as a chief
executive. But no-one can seriously question the man's
intelligence. What, then, accounts for his shocking
performance Monday night at the opening of the PLP
convention?
He is intelligent enough to know that he has hell on his
hands. The country is deteriorating at nearly every level.
The economy is sick. Unemployment is mounting. Inflation
is rampant. Crime is on the increase. Labour is restive.
Youth is disappointed.
It is chiefly Mr. Pindling's responsibility to deal with
these problems, most of which have been caused by the
PLP in the first place, but he obviously does not know
where to begin. He and his party still have a considerable
residue of emotional appeal but not much of anything else.
And even the emotional appeal is daily turning into
disaffection.
When the party was coming face to face with itself in
1970 it was none other than Lynden Pindling who
frustrated the process of self-examination and re-direction
by hysterically shouting to the critics in the party to get to
hell out of the boat.
On the night ot the historic no-confidence vote, Mrs.
Pindling told a radio reporter on the steps of the House of
Assembly, "Now we know where we are going!"
She might have added: "Straight to hell!"
At the next convention of the party in 1971 Deputy
Prime Minister Arthur D. Hanna triumphantly declared that
the PLP were then without dissent. Some of the party
faithful chorused, "Trouble gone!"
A majority of the party had been convinced that the
so-called Dissident Eight were an intolerable threat to their
beloved Leader and they proceeded to eliminate that
threat, which, of course, they were quite free to do.
TROUBLE NOT GONE
But trouble was not gone. The PLP had just refused to
deal with the arrogance, incompetence, stupidity and
grabaliciousness which continued to corrode the nobler
ideals of the party. So today they are in more trouble than
ever before in their history and there is no way that they
can reverse the tragic consequences which are overtaking
the Bahamian people as a result of their folly.
Mr. Pindling knew this when he walked to the rostrum of
the PLP Convention Monday night. There were many faces
before him. Trusting faces. Scheming faces. Contented
faces. Envious faces. It was futile for him to hope that
those faces held the solutions to problems. And it turned
out to be just as futile for those faces to have looked to him
for solutions.
Prior to the last general election the Free National
Movement, while not opposed to independence for the
Bahamas, warned the Bahamian people that the PIP was
not competent to lead the country into this important step
and that economic decline was a matter which deserved the
most urgent attention.
Independence was not and is not the cause of most of
our problems. Neither can it be the cure. Yet the PLP
convinced a whole lot of people that the Promised Land
would become a reality with the advent of independence.

black from his shoe tops to the headless neck.
For a moment I was stunned but soon caught myself when I
realized that this was a very tall policeman. It was a cold night.
lie was wearing his great coat with the collar turned up so that his
face was concealed. The perfect figure of a headless giant.
I told him abou the headless man in the Queen's Staircase
valley.
"Are you game?", he asked, realizing that it was his duty to
investigate this case, but not wanting to go into the valley alone.
"Sure," I agreed. "Let's go."

t he man was still dead out when we got there.
The policeman, a giant of a man, shook the prostrate figure
and when he didn't stir, he grabbed him by the middle and stood
him on his feet.
The unconscious man swayed from side to side for a couple of
minutes. While the policeman held him on his buckling knees.
Gradually the man started to "come to". As consciousness
dawned, the drunk rubbed his eyes and for a moment stared in a
stunned silence at the black headless figure.
Suddenly he stiffened and breathed one word: "Christ!"
The policeman slackened his hold on the man tu see if he could
staJd. He didn't walk. He took off at top speed down the valley,
across Shirley Street, down Elizabeth Avenue then named
Union Street and out on to the wharf. then known as No. I
dock.
It was a bleak night and so there was no one on the street. The
last we saw of the flying figure was when he disappeared at the
end of the dock.
Did he jump overboard?
I don't know. All I know is that we had three incidents on
which to build blood stirring stories about headless ghosts.

Sheets, all talked about the wonderful things which would
come with independence: soft loans, education, tourist
development, fisheries developments, agricultural
development, health facilities all sorts of nice things.
The PLP assured the people that they had it all planned.
They were in charge of the situation. Now what does the
Prime Minister say? These are his own astonishing words
which amount to a confession of short-sightedness,
incompetence and dereliction of duty:
"...An unfortunate consequence of the march to July 10
was the fact that it did divert the Government's time,
attention and energies away from the pressing social and
ecomimic problems of the day, high on the list of which
were, and still are, unemployment, housing, the cost of
living, alcoholism, illegitimacy and law and order. Because









% ,





















last met in Convention."
PROPHETS OF DOOM
This is the same Prime Minister who. toured the country
in 1972 condemning the FNM as prophets of doom and
assuring the people that he and his Government were ready
and able to set their destiny, that- the situation was under
control.
Now he admits that he and his Government have been
miserable failures. After using an emotional carrot to
mislead the people, they now admit that unemployment
was indeed a problem then as it is now.
While the Prime Minister was riding soft to independence
in Rolls Royce style, the very livelihood of the people was
being ignored!


The Government had no time, no energy to devote to
bread and butter for the very people whose emotions they
traded on for power!
Personal power, glory, status and economic opportunities
for the fat cats, they had time and energy to devote to
these but no time to be concerned about jobs for poor
people!
The Prime Minister had time to negotiate the purchase of
almost a half million dollar mansion for himself but he had
no time to devote to housing for thousands of Bahamians
who still live in sub-standard hovels!
It is unbelievable that leaders who sprang from the
ranks of the people can be so forgetful and so callous. It is
astonishing that a Prime Minister can have the brass to show
his face to the people after what seems a massive betrayal
of their trust.
The Prime Minister says that the problems are not
insoluble. That might be true but they will certainly not be
solved by a PLP Government. His first suggestion towards a
solution is this:
"Firstly, I humbly suggest, 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'."
Adopt a slogan! A slogan and a resolution!
Mr. Pindling believes that it is easy to fool Bahamians
and, sad to say, many Bahamians have allowed themselves
to be fooled by this man time after time. Slogans are fine
when they represent something of substance but the
economy of this country cannot be sloganized into revival.
When pockets are empty and bellies are growling, when
the man comes for the car and the mortgage is foreclosed,
when the children .,,ve school and there are no jobs, a
slogan will sound like a provocative mockery and that
particular slogan, "Build a Better Bahamas," will epitomize
the sneering cynicism which is the PLP's approach to the
welfare of the people.
But perhaps the Prime Minister is being too harshly
judged? Well, listen further and see if he offers anything
more concrete than a slogan. "We must immediately set
about..." to implement corrective measures and put plans
into action? No such luck.
"Find ways and means ... develop the formula and the
finance ... develop the capacity...seek to develop an
environment ...redevelop and make safe...demonstrate our
respect..."
Nothing more than a selection of words which in their
very weakness eloquently testify to the bankruptcy of ideas
and competence in the PLP and the frustration of a Prime
Minister who is now unable or unwilling to save the people
from the unpromising land into which he has led them.
It may be that the most prophetic words uttered by
anybody in the last election campaign were by Mr. Sinclair
Outten on the night of October 31 at a meeting in St.
Barnabas:
"The avalanche of the PLP is on and nothing can change
the shape of things to come!"
The avalanche of the PLP is indeed on and many hopes
and dreams of the people are being buried under it. When it
is all over, hopefully, some strong minds and hearts will
have survived to undertake the task of clearing the debris
and to begin again to build.

ARCHITECT IAN ALLEN, 45, was fined $80 Friday for using
obscene language and assaulting two police officers on July 20
when he appeared before Chief Magistrate Wilton Hercules.


Allen, accused by police of
also resisiting the officers was
cautioned on the charge.
He had also filed counter

He accused p.c. Mackey of

bench when he asked that the


handcuffs be removed. "It
takes a brave sonnavabitch like
you to handcuff somebody..."
he said he told the constable
who then struck him for saying
what he did.
Allowed to go to the men's
room, he said the policemen
removed the handcuffs but
attempted to replace them
afterward.
Telling them that he did not
need the hand-cuffs, he said he
held his hands apart but the
officers grabbed his hands and
replaced them.
He also testified about the
struggle and said that he
requested they remove the
handcuffs after he came from
the doctor's office.
HARD BLOW
He said a scutfle followed in

He said that he visited his
family doctor, Dr. William

The doctor, along with
photographer Stanley Toogood
testified for the defense this
morning.
Dr. Cole said he examined
Allen at High Vista on July 21
and found he had an abrasion
on the right side of the head
about the size of the palm of
his hand.
It also had particles of a
pigment of some sort that

GETS FURTHER 6 MONTHS

FOR ESCAPING FROM CUSTODY


JOHN PRATT, 23, was
sentenced to six months in
prison after a Supreme Court
jury found him guilty of
escaping lawful custody on
April 4 at Freeport, Grand
Bahama.
Supreme Court justice
Maxwell J. Thompson imposed
the sentence to run
consecutively to an 8 year term
being served by the accused for
armed robbery.
Pratt, undefended
throughout his hearing, was
told by the judge that the
sentence was imposed because
"you ran away and gave us a
lot of trouble and pleaded not
guilty when you should have
pleaded guilty."
Accused of walking out of
his unlocked cell at the Freeprt
Central Police Station after
two officers went to the
outside of the building to
prepare several other prisoners
for flight to Nassau, Pratt
denied the charge.
He told the court that he
was lawfully freed by a police
constable and had also signed a
bail bound for his release.

'The results of a blow in
that area might result in
concussion or probably death."
The doctor identified the
bruise in a photograph taken
by Mr. Toogood.
NO LACERATION
He could not remember
seeing a laceration above Mr.
Allen's right eye that showed
up on the photograph he said.
adding that he would be
surprised if it was there during
his examination.
Mr. Toogood, called in to
testify concerning the
photograph said he was unable
to say at what time he took the
picture.
Ite remembered it was taken
on July 21 only because of a
diary entry, he said.
Allen was represented by
Mr. Eugene Dupuch Q.C.. who
said he had produced
uncontroverted evidence to
show that Allen's injuries were
suffered at the hospital and
that no other evidence was
brought to disprove it.
Earlier, Mr. Dupuch had
argued that Allen had no case
to answer, but this had been
overruled by the magistrate.
TRAFFIC ACCIDENT
Allen's charges arose from
an incident on July 20 when he
was arrested by police
constables 877 Donalc
Lotmore and 682 Adam
Mackey at Rawson Square
after a traffic accident.
He was taken to the Princess
Margaret Hospital for police to
confirm suspicions that he was
drunk at the time of the
accident.
The policemen testified that
Allen had to be hand-cuffed to
prevent his escape and that he
assaulted p.c. 682 Mackey after
a visit to the men's room.
But Allen filed counter
charges against the two officers
accusing them of beating him
on the head.
The defence argued the
arrest was not lawful as the
officers failed to state the
charges and also, that since he


was not lawfully detained at
the hospital, he was justified
for whatever actions he took
against the police by resisting.
"In this matter, I feel
satisfied that there had been
sufficient credible evidence
presented before me on the
part of the prosecution to rule


that there is a prima facie case
against the defendant,"
Magistrate Hercules said.
He was of the opinion that it
was not necessary for a police
officer to state in full and
precise legal language the
charge to a person suspected of
an offence.

Development Minister Carlton
E. Francis revealed in a speech
at the PLP convention last


He also revealed that "a
proposal is before us for a
crude oil terminal in south
Abaco."
Mr. Francis did not
elaborate on either of the
disclosures.

wholly-owned subsidiary of

Owens Illinois, Inc., began
sugar growing operations at
Abaco in 1969 but was forced
to close down two years later
because of substantial financial
loss.
BAIL lost $6.7 million in
1969 and a further $4 million
in 1970. The sugar operation
was being carried out on a
2 3,000-acre sugar cane
plantation. BAIL also carried
out pulp-logging at the island.
The disclosure that the
BAIL equipment and land may
not have to lie unused came in
a section of the Minister's
address dealing with
Government's desire to exploit
agriculture and fisheries
resources.
"The moment for such
activities, I believe, is
propitious as we face the
steady climbing in food prices,
the declining world food
supply and the impending
international food crisis," he
said.
GOVT. CONCERN
"So concerned is the
Government over this," he


added, "that recently a
decision has been taken to
provide half a million dollars to
meet feasible short-term
goals."
He did not say what criteria'
would be used to measure the
worth of proposals, nor did he
go into details on the terms of,
the development grants.
The Minister said "it is being
increasingly realized that
agriculture and fusheries
should offer substantial
opportunities for
development.
He said the primary
objectives of a farming
development programme
would be a concentrated effort
on used farming land under
cultivation to convert land
already in use into a more
productive food source, reduce
the drudgery of the pot-hole
farmer by the introduction of
modern techniques, and the
organisation of a grading and
marketing system.

yesterday was "partnership

Public row in closing session of convention

By MIKE LOTHIAN
FREEPORT Controversy erupted in a public session of the PIP convention for the first time in the closing session Friday night,
when a bid to over-ride an earlier resolution rearranging the programme sparked a heated 45-minute debate.


Dunng the Friday afternoon
session Cat Island M.P. Oscar
Johnson won the almost
unanimous support of the
delegates for a motion which
would have delayed the
election of party officers until
after 17 resolutions on the
agenda, but not previously
dealt with, had been debated
and voted on.
But after donations totalling,
over $4,000 had been collected
and pledges for over $5,000
more had been given,
Culmerville delegate Brave
Davis moved a resolution that
the published convention
programme be adhered to, as
the public galleries were
packed with several hundred
spectators who, by the party's
constitution, would have had
to leave the convention hall
during the debates on the
outstanding resolutions, and
return later if they wished to
witness the elections.
Mr. Davis' motion was
eventually carried by a
comfortable majority, and the
elections preceded the
resolutions.
But there was considerable
debate before the convention
reached its decision.
The Cat Island M.P., urging
adherence to a resolution
already passed by the
convention, questioned the
wisdom of debating the
resolution behind closed doors.
PEOPLE'S PARTY
"This is the people's party,"
he declared, "and I can see no
reason why the public should
be barred from listening to the
resolutions. If this national
general convention, the
supreme authority of this great
party, passes a resolution, does
the resolution have no teeth,
no merit, no bearing?" he

demanded.
Fred McKinsey of the
Bimini and West End
delegation contributed the
opinion that "we made a
mistake by not announcing that
there would be a closed session
tonight. But we know that.
only delegates are allowed to
be here when we discuss
resolutions. How can we throw
our business out in the road?"
he asked.
Fort Fincastle M.P. Alfred
Maycock pointed out that "the
record will show that this
afternoon this national general
convention took a decision on
a resolution. The convention
didn't meet this afternoon for
only a handful of delegates. All
delegates had an obligation to
attend, and the majority of the
delegates present decided that
they would continue to deal
with resolutions before the
elections.
"The administration knew
of that decision," he pointed
out. The co-chairman for the
convention was here, the
chairman of the party was
here, the acting first vice


chairman was here and they all
knew what the decision was."
Delegate Leroy Ferguson
declared that "it wouldn't be
fair" to ask the public to leave
during the resolutions and then
return for the elections.
"We have the press here, and
the gallery is full, and 1 cannot
sit by and see us destroy
ourselves. The convention is
the supreme authority and
what the majority says, goes."
Former PLP chairman
George Mackey, M.P. for St.
Michael's told delegates that
"we have accepted donations
from the public in the gallery,
we have taken their money.
Are we going to tell these
people who came at our
invitation that they have to go?
Are we going to throw them
out?
MADE MISTAKE
"All of us make mistakes,
and it takes a man to admit he
made a mistake. A mistake was
made this afternoon, even
though it was made in true
democratic form. We cannot
perpetuate that mistake


tonight. I recommend that we
continue with the programme
as it was announced to the
public.
Health Minister A. Loftus
Roker, M.P, for Nichol's Town, ,'
rose to say "I believe that the .
session chairman (Senator M '
B. Butler) is in difficu!I
because there is no motion.
the floor.
"There is a motion on the
floor," Sen. Butler corrected
him.
"There is no motion on
floor," the Minister insist
"and since that's the case it
time now for the session..-
chairman to decide what we
are going to do."
Sen. flutler interrupted the
debate to repeat that "a
motion was duly put by Mr.
Davis and seconded by a South
Beach delegate and the motion
was put to the floor. I would
now recognize Mr. Davis to
wind up the debate."
Mr. Davis reiterated his
statement in support of his
motion, and in the subsequent
vote it was carried by a slim
but comfortable majority.

by non-nationals and other
advantages.
"Flag of convenience
countries derive considerable
revenue for providing this
facility whereas tax havens
derive little or no revenue at
all."
He pointed out that Liberia
and Panama are the leading flag
of convenience countries, and
Liberia earns $7 million a year
and the figure is expected to
rise to $10 million in the next
few years.
And "it is the considered
opinion of experts in the
shipping world that the
Bahamas offers greater
attractions for this type of
activity than Liberia does.
They point to the facts that
the Bahamas occupies a
geographical position which is
at the hub of the western
world's most heavily travelled
shipping lanes, we have some
of the best investment
opportunities in the world, we
have an international
communications network and,
of course, we are an important
financial centre and therefore
ideally equipped to facilitate
the financial arrangements
connected with ship
operation."
REVENUE EARNER
Mr. Rolle made it clear that
while introduction of an
appropriate system would be
intended to attract
revenue-earning registrations,
"we would seek to attract new
ships and other relatively
modern first-class tonnage to
our register, and will not
welcome or encourage
over-aged, out of class or
otherwise sub-standard tonnage
to fly our flag."
lie added that if
Government does decide to
introduce a flag of convenience
registration system, we should
encourage the actual operation
of ships from the Bahamas.
He again referred to experts,
who he said 'point out that
although Liberia is the world's
largest flag of convenience
registry ... it is nevertheless far
removed from the operation of
Liberian vessels because of its
isolated geographical position
and allied communications

GIRL GUIDES

'COOKIE WEEK'
THE GIRL GUIDES in
Nassau and at Grand Bahama
started selling packets of
biscuits today during their
annual Girl Guide Cookie
Week. This year they hope to
sell 120,000 packets of
biscuits.
Cookie Week is the main
fund-raising effort of the
Guides and the fund will be
spent again on tht
development of their camp
site.
"1973 will be an important
year in the history of guiding
as this year 10 acres of land
have been leased to the
Association by government," a
Girl Guide release said. The
tent-site areas of the land have
been cleared and a road has
been put in.
"By February the Guides
will be able to start camping on
the site, and they hope, within
a year with financial support,
they will be able to erect their
first permanent building," the
release said.


problems."
On the other hand, the
Bahamas offers, in addition to
tax savings, its strategic
geographical position, good
telecommunications, excellent
air service to many of the
world's major commercial
centres, a large number of
internationally respected banks
and trust companies, plenty of
good office space and
abundant manpower.
He said it was also
emphasized by the experts that
"by registering ships in the
Bahamas and carrying out
certain management operating
and financial functions from
here, we can provide a 'genuine
line' between the owner and
the flag, something that has
been missing and criticised in
many flag of convenience
countries today."
The Minister said it is
estimated that purely shoreside
annual administrative costs of
operating modern vessels is
about $50,000 or $60,000 per
vessel.
"The recurring income
injected into the economy
from vessel operations could in
due course far outweigh the
annual revenue earned by ship
registration," he added.
"Finally, the successful
implementation of the
proposals I have thrown out
for consideration will establish
the basis of a proper maritime
training programme that will
not only train our youngsters
to take their rightful place in
the maritime affairs of our
nation, but will also ensure
that there is a place for them
once they have been trained."

inconvenience, perhaps even
dangers, and certainly great
expense," said the FNM.
"While we talk of building a
nation and making our way in
the international community,
the Government's behaviour in
this whole affair cannot help
but make us a bigger
laughing-stock in the eyes of
the world," charged the FNM.
There was also another
aspect of this situation and
that is this, said the FNM:
without a safe and reliable air
service the development of
tourism, particularly in the
Family Islands will be seriously
retarded. It would be difficult
to get investors to put millions
of dollars into tourist facilities
in the Family Islands when
they cannot be assured of air
service to and from those
islands.
Aviation Minister Maynard
at the PLP convention in
Freeport made the startling
admission Thursday night that
"the overall performance of
Bahamasair during the first
three months of its operation
was appalling" and that "the
main problem" had been

viable proposition."
Presently owners of large
tankers have little choice, when
it becomes necessary to dock
their ships for repairs, but to
take them out of service for
excessive periods of time to
divert them to distant repair
ports.
Experts point out, the
Minister said, that the Bahamas
enjoys a more favourable
position for repair facilities
than Curacao in the Dutch
Antilles, which has had a
successful ship repair operation
for many years.
"In point of fact," he added,
"the Bahamas Government has
in recent months received at
least four proposals for the
creation of a ship yard/ship
repair facility in one or other
of our islands, and they are
receiving the consideration of
the ministries concerned.
The Minister interjected that
although he did not propose to
deal with the arguments of
those "whose design is to
stagnate the development of
this kind of activity" by
warning of the ecological
dangers, "I merely wish to
emphasize that all of our
maritime efforts and
involvement will be undertaken
with an awareness of the
environmental dangers of
untoward incidents
particularly involving tankers -
and all recognized equipment
and procedures to minimize
such dangers will be actively
encouraged."
Mr. Rolle said the facts given
in support of the feasibility of
ship repair facilities here were
equally persuasive inducements
for the Bahamas to consider
the advisability of introducing
a proper ship registration
system.
SHIP REGISTRATION
He said the Bahamas has for
years operated as a tax haven
offering ship registration, but
ships registered in the Bahamas
and owned by companies
resident here are subject to
Bntish regulations of safety,
manning and certification.
But "flag of convenience"
registration established by
legislation here would offer
among other things "a
minimum of interference in the
business affairs of owners,
absence of direct taxation,
freedom in manning of ships

DEAR ABBY: My wife and I are both 53. We have
three married, college-educated children any parents would
be glad to claim.
My wife and I married very young. [Shotgun wedding. ]
We are well off and respected in the community, but here's
the problem:
My wife never worked outside the home. She spent all
her time raising her children, and she did a fine job. About
six years ago I caught her and the insurance man kissing
in our kitchen. She swore it would never happen again. Two
years later I caught this same man kissing her in the park-
ing lot at a V. F. W. party. Again she swore she would
never see him again. Last summer I caught them again.
This time there was a big fight, and she confessed they had
been seeing each other for six years, three afternoons a
week!'
She doesn't want a divorce, and this man [also mar-
ried] doesn't want one either. I don't really want one.
Do I love her? No! I could walk away from her and
never look back, but I'm too old to start over.
How do other men who have been in this boat handle a
situation like this? NO NAMES, PLEASE

Don't want a divorce?


Then forgive and forget

may be of no help to you. You need to decide how YOU
want to handle It. Talk it over with your wife. It will take a
lot of forgiving and forgetting, and forgetting what you
forgave to keep your marriage Intact. You say you are too
"old" to start over! Plenty of men would give a lot to be 53
again. Life is short. Make It sweet.

DEAR ABBY: Since our second child was born, our
3-year-old daughter has been helping me immensely by
answering the phone when I am busy. She speaks quite
clearly, and answers the phone with, "Hi, my mommy is
busy with the baby, but she is coming now."
Some people hang up as soon as they realize a small
child has answered. Our daughter is so proud that she can
help Mommy in this way. It takes only a few moments to
listen to her, and makes her so happy.
Maybe your printing this letter will make some people
more tolerant of a small child who answers the phone.
BUSY YOUNG MOTHER
DEAR MOTHER: Maybe. But maybe not. Youngsters
answering the phone is the pet peeve of a surprising num-
ber of adults.

DEAR ABBY: I'm not sure whether I have a problem.
Here's the situation: I'm 26 and my wife, Diane, is 22. We
got back from our honeymoon last week and are living
temporarily with Diane's parents and her sister, who is 21.
Our first night back, Diane was about to leave our
room to take a shower when I noticed she had nothing on
at all. When I reminded her that her father was in the
house she gave me a puzzled look and left the room, naked.
That was nothing. Since then she often goes around the
house with very little on. She even irons clothes in the
kitchen in her bra and panties. Yesterday I came home and
found her sitting on the floor watching TV completely
naked while her sister was setting her hair. Her sister
always wears a little something, but not much. Their father
was in the next room reading the paper.
Last night when I spoke to her about it she said that's
the way she was brought up. I let it drop and decided to
write to you.
Abby, I have no sisters so I don't know how girls
normally act in front of their fathers. Are my wife and her
sister typical? If I'm the one who's out of line please tell
me, and I'll keep quiet. PUZZLED
DEAR PUZZLED: In some homes, nudity is accepted
casually, but they are the exceptions-not the rule.


DEAR ABBY: I am a male, age 52, married for 30
years, and I am still very much alive in every respect.
For several years now, my wife, who is a very attrac-
tive woman, has come to bed fully clothed in her uniform
of pajamas which are buttoned high up around her neck
and tightly secured at the waist, the wrists, and ankles.
There is just no getting in anywhere.
She also has yards of toilet tissue wrapped around her
head to keep her hairdo intact, and the whole paper-head is
covered with a ridiculous ruffled nightcap.
I wish she would get one of those lovely nightgowns I
have given her out of the drawer and wear it, so I could
tell I was sleeping with a woman. I just can't stand those
pajamas and that helmet!
Does any other man feel the way I do? I hope to see
your answer before the fire goes out.
ANTI P. J.'S IN CAROLINA
DEAR ANTI: Yes, most of them do. Women, what are
you saving your lovely, feminine nightgowns and hairdos
for? It's later than you think.
A woman who goes to bed looking like a scarecrow
reminds me of the bride who came to her own wedding in
rollers-because she wanted to look nice for the reception.

A NEW name has been
bowled around English
county cricket grounds this
summer.
It belongs to a Bahamian
who has hit the headlines and
become the talk of county
side Worcestershire.
The name: Ivan Johnson.
And at 20 he has emerged as
one of the best discoveries for
years.
Ivan, son of Mr. and Mrs.
Basil Johnson, of Oakes
Field, became an established
figure in a highly successful
Worcestershire side this year.
The county team fought
through to the finals of the
Benson and Hedges cup
where they lost to Kent.
They were beaten in the
semi-finals of the Gillette cup
by eventual winners
Gloucestershire. And in the
county championship they
finished sixth out of 17,
The highlight of the season
for all-rounder Ivan was the
cup final at Lord's in front of
a capacity crowd of 30,000.
He took only one wicket
and by the time he went into
bat at number nine the game
was virtually over.
"But this is my first full
season in county cricket and
it was tremendously exciting
to be at Lord's. Other players
have been in county cricket

but could not find the right
punch to put him away.

final," said Ivan.
He is a left-handed
batsman and slow left-arm
orthodox bowler.
In the English County
Championships (three day
games) he scored over 500
runs at an average of 25 and
took 20 wickets at an average
of 40 a piece.
He played in one or two
crucial matches. And in the
second round of the
competitive Gillette Cup he
was the hers of the match
against Warwickshire when,
with Warwickshire needing
only 10 runs to win off the
last two overs, he captured
the last two wickets in three
balls to win the gane for his
side.
He learned his cricket in
England and only two years
ago was captain of public
school side Malvern College.
"My father never played
cricket but I've always
enjoyed the game since 1 first
hit a ball against a wall with a
stick," said Ivan.
At school, lie was coached

Duff.

From the start of the fight
Ali was the crowd's favourite.
Ali. in white trunks and
white boots, and Lubbers in
red shorts and bright blue
boots, soon got down to
business but it was evident
from the first round that the
Dutchman was fighting out of
his class.
Ali hit him at will with his
flicking left hand and easily
dodged Lubbers' wild rushing
counter attack.
In the fourth round, Ali
trapped Lubbers in the corner
and rapped him with punches
to the head and body.
Lubbers tried to force All
