POLICE WITNESS STARTLES COURT,

CLAIMS TESTIMONY SIGNATURE 'FALSE'





Murder witness





charged with





changing evidence


By SIDNEY DORSETT
ANTHONY "STICK-A-TONE" CONYERS, whose evidence yesterday placed him
on the scene of the Perpall Tract gunslaying of Raymond Barry Major, 25, on
September 5 last year, found himself accused this morning by a defense attorney of
discussing "the whole event afterwards" between other key prosecution witnesses
and "conveniently" changing his testimony in court.


Attorney David C. Bethell
charged today that (onyers,
along with prosecution witness
Raymond 'Skull" Scavella and
Barry Thompson gotten
together after the murder in a
discussion of the incident.
The charge was laid by the
attorney who drew reference
to a statement purportedly
made to police by Conyer:
which said Burrows had shot
Major "about three more
times" after the first shot.
The statement also gave a
varying sequence to the events
taking place on September 5,
1972, when compared with
Conyers' testimony.
The 24-year-old waiter
denied the allegations of Mr.
Bethell, counsel for second


accused Phillip "Polka"
Ilumes. 20. charged with
abetment of murder.
lHumes is jointly charged
with Wendell "Red" Burrows,
a Freeport bartender, 25,
charged with murder of
Major. Representing him is
attorney Lawrence P.J.
Trenchard.
G giving evidence for the
second day Conyers underwent
cross-examination by Mr.
Bethell that consisted of a
comparison of his statement to
the police, his evidence before
a magistrate and his testimony
in court Thursday.
IllFFI Rl NT STORM
Mr. Bethell charged that in
each ca-c, the witness gave
diffe rent evidence.


"L.O. STOP PAYING LIP SERVICE to union at ZNS; say
what you mean!" Was the demand on one of the placards carried
by BEC and Radio Bahamas employees vesterdav in 2
demonstration to protest the Labour Ministry's bid to prevent the
Engineering and General Union from expanding its membership
to radio and airline workers. Here the demonstrators march into
the parking lot of Nassau Bank House, where the radio station's
executive offices are located. PHOTO: Philip Symonette.



Unionists picket ZNS,


want chairman & all



ZNS board dismissed
ENGINEERING AND GENERAL UNION PRESIDENT
Dudley Williams and shop steward Jeff Scavella Thursday
afternoon led about 25 BEC and Radio Bahamas Employees in a
demonstration against Radio Bahamas.


The union has for some
months been embroiled in a
dispute with the Labour
Ministry over the question of
whether the union could
expand to add the radio
station's staff and that of
Bahamasair to its existing
membership drawn primarily
from the Bahamas Electricity
Corporation and Shell
(Bahamas) Limited.
Yesterday's demonstration
was being held during the
lunch hour, beginning shortly
after one o'clock and
continuing to about 1:30.
The placard-bearing
picketters started their
demonstration on Collins
Avenue, just north of Third
Terrace where the radio station
is located, and marched north
along Collins, west along
Second Terrace and then south
up the hill to Nassau Bank
House, where the Radio
Bahamas executive offices are

located.
After marching around the
parking lot there several times,
the demonstrators moved back
to Collins Avenue where an
impromptu meeting was held.
Mr. Williams warned the
BEC and ZNS workers that the
Ministry's attempts to
"control" the union constitute
"a threat to democracy".
Declared one placard carried
by a demonstrator: "ZNS
Union demands question of
recognition be resolved
immediately ... or else ..."
DEMANDS
There were demands for the
dismissal or resignation of
Corporation chairman Senator
Milo B. Butler, secretary Walter
Wisdom, administrative officer
Pamela Granger, the entire
ZNS board, and Labour
Minister Clifford L. Darling.
A message directed to Prime
Minister L. 0. Pindling
declared, "You are Milo's and
Darling's boss, and you don't
call the shots?"
Another placard charged
that the "ZNS chairman, board
and management are
anti-union".
Urging solidarity, Mr.
Williams notified the
demonstrators that there will
be a demonstration lunch time
Saturday at Bahamasair.


And Mr. Bethell, who
attempted to put to Conyers
that when he was first picked
up by police he made a
statement differing from all
that has been said, was not
permitted to ask the question.
"You can't ask that question
if you have not got the
statement. If you are going to
produce evidence that such a
statement exists, you may ask
the question," Mr. Justice
James Smith said.
Mr. Bethell then asked the
court for an adjournment
which was granted at I1:01 p.m.
to allow him to consult with
Solicitor General T. Langton
Hilton, leading the case for the
prosecution.
But, his cross-examination
of the ear-pierced witness
revealed that Conyers was
away from the island in early
September at the request of
prosecution witness Barry
Thompson.
Thompson, accused by Mr.
Bethell of giving the order for
Major to be carried to Perpall
Tract, had also requested that
Conyers leave Nassau, the
court was told. He denied the
$150 gift to Conyers during
cross-examination.
A tenant in the Oscar
Johnson building, Market
Street, Conyers said he
returned to Nassau on the
morning of September 5 and
found the building was
damaged by fire.
IS THAT TRUE?
"Is what you said in your
statement to police true: that
you went inside the office at
Queen Street and collected
some money because you were
living in the Oscar Johnson
building apartment on Market
Street that got burned down?"
"Yes," Conyers admitted.
And Conyers told the court
that he received the $ 150 from
Thompson.
"Did you fell there was
some obligation on the part of
Barry Thompson to assist you
because of the fire?" Mr.
Bethell queried.
"I felt that he was the only
one I could have taken the
matter to after getting back..."
Conyers replied.
He said he went on Bay St.
after receiving the $150.
DOESN'T REMEMBER
Conyers said he could not
remember being questioned by
the police about the fire that
destroyed his former
apartment.
Asked when was the first
time he saw Major on
September 5 he said it "was
after coming off Bay Street...I
met him at Queen Street, me
and Humes were together, he
was alone.
The attorney's allegation
that Major, and Raymond
"Skull" Scavella were in a car
that picked Conyers and
Humes up on Bay Street was
denied.
Conyers also denied that
after the car picked them up,
they left directly for Perpall
Tract. But, Mr. Bethel's
allegations were based on a
statement Conyers is purported
to have given police.
The police statement,
recorded by Criminal
Investigation Department Sgt.
Johnson in December, was
used extensively during the
hearing this morning.
Its use by defence counsel
stall ted yesterday when
C'onyers surprised the court by
saying that a signature
appearing on it as his was
"false".
"This is my name but not
my signature," he told the
court. He did not make the
signature he said.

Unspecified 'mechanical difficulties' &


well-field problems cause water cuts

By Mike Lothian

ANOTHER SHUT-DOWN of the trouble-plagued Blue Hills desalination plant and problems in
the well-fields, have been blamed for the resumption of nightly water supply cuts to New
Providence consumers.


A Bahamas information
Services press statement today
said only that normal supplies
would be resumed "shortly,"
and a Works Ministry
spokesman declined to expand
on the vague statements in the
release.
The release said: "The
Ministry of Works apologises to
its water consumers for the
recent water cuts which have
occurred at nights.
"Unfortunately, like any
other piece of equipment, the
desalination plant is subject to
mechanical trouble. When this
occurs, the plant has to cool
down before the repairs can be
started. When completed, it
takes nearly 24 hours before it
produces at full capacity again.
"While this was happening
to the desalination plant. New
Providence Development
Company, from which the
Ministry purchases two million
gallons of water a day, was also
experiencing mechanical
troubles, which for a few days
led to a considerable reduction
in the quantity of water they
could supply.
"In order to ensure that
there is no serious depletion of
water reserves, pressure has
been reduced or cut oft at
nights recently.
"It is expected that the
desalination plant will be
working again shortly, and the
cuts and reductions will be
reduced soon after," the
statement ended.
NOTHING MORtI
Mr. Patrick Erskine-Lindop,
permanent secretary in the
Ministry, told The Tribune that
the release "says all that needs
to be said."
lie could not say between
which specific hours of the
night pressure is being reduced:
"it will probably vary
depending on the state of the
reserves," he said.
He would say only that the
desalination plant would return
to operation when the repairs
are completed, he gave no date,
and was not willing to say
whether it would be more or
less than a week.
Reports indicate that the
pressure reductions coincided
with or followed on the heels
of Tropical Storm Gilda's
passage through the central
Bahamas last weekend.
However, it is not known
whether the storm had
anything to do with the
desalination plant's problems
or those in the New Providence
Development Company's
well-fields.
KNOCKED OUT
The government well-fields
were recently knocked out of
action for several days by
electrical storms, and it was
speculated that the same thing
happened to the N.P. Devco
fields this week. But there have
been no violent electrical
storms in the last week.
The present reductions
appear, in some areas of the


island at least, to be starting in
the early evening of each day
and continuing to early the
following morning.
The serious pressure drops
this week ended a period of
almost two months of
relatively reliable water
supplies the only such period
in several years.


The problem is due mainly
to a wide gap two to four
million gallons between the
island's daily water production
and the consumers' demands.
The problem has been
aggravated by the erratic
functioning of the $4.3 million
desalination plant at the Blue
Hill water/power complex.

CRACKDOWN

ON 'UNSAFE'


VEHICLES


DRIVERS of vehicles
modified to the point where
they are considered unsafe by
police officers will be required
to submit the vehicle for
f additional Road Traffic
Authority inspection, and the
vehicles may be ordered off the
road until required changes are
made.


Special targets of the road
safety drive are vehicles,
mainly Volkeswagens, whose
owners have cut wheel-wells to
accommodate over-sized tyres,
and vehicles which have been
'' elevated by the replacement of
the manufacturer's suspension
system.


A Bahamas Information
Services Press release said:
"In co-operation with the
Road Traffic Department.
Police Force members are
stopping motor vehicles
deemed unsafe for various
reasons and directing the
drivers to report to the
inspection centre at Fort
Charlotte."
DANGEROUS
The release said both the
Ministry of Health and the
Ministry of Transport are
concerned, "especially about
the current practice of owners
of some vehicles who create a
dangerous cutting edge on
tenders in order to
accommodate over-sized
type',.
Some owners who want to
put on their wheels larger than
anything the car's body was
designed for have to cut and
then fold outwards parts of the
body for the double purpose of
getting more room for the new
wheel and of creating a new
fender /mud guard. In many
cases poor workmanship results
;n ra,"r-'harp edges.
"In the event a pedestrian is
struck by this type of fender,"
a spokesman said, "a serious
injury could result because of
the sharp edge. Vehicles with
such fenders will not be
approved.
MINUS SPRINGS
"Inspectors have also been
alerted not to pass any car
which has the base elevated by
removal of the manufacturer's
springs, since this tends to
destroy the vehicle's stability."
The spokesman was referring
to the popular practice of
making a vehicle look "racy"
by putting new suspension
systems designed to raise the
rear end, sometimes by several
feet.
The inspectors will also
make sure that heavy-duty
vehicles have reflectors and
that all signal lights are
functioning properly.
Superintendent Avery
Ferguson of the Police traffic
division told The Tribune that
while police officers will watch
particularly for the three kinds
of problems mentioned in the
official release, they will also
stop any vehicle they notice
which appears to be in any way
unsafe.
INSPECTION
The policemen will take the
cars number and the name of
the owner or driver, and order
the vehicle taken to the Road
Traffic Authority for
inspection within a week. The
names and car numbers will be
handed over to the Authority.
If any driver fails to take his
vehicle in for the inspection, he
will be subject on summary
conviction to a fine of about
$25 for the first offence, and
to a fine up to about $150 for
subsequent offences.
Controller of Road Traffic
Ralph Wood said any vehicle
ordered in by police which his
department's inspectors find
defective in any way will have
the inspection sticker removed
and the vehicle will be ordered
off the road until the changes
are made.
It was explained that a
number of vehicles are passed
by the inspectors and
subsequently are modified or
develop some defect.

Communist Party chief Leonid

Actress


Sue

to wed


convict
CANON CITY, Colorado
(AP) Actress Sue Lyon, who
at the age of 14 played the
teen-age sex kitten in "Lolita,"
plans to marry a convicted
murderer next month in a
ceremony at the Colorado
State Penitentiary.
Miss Lyon, 27, who has been
divorced twice, said she met
Cotton Adamson, 33, through
a mutual friend who was once
jailed with Adamson in Los
Angeles.
Miss Lyon said she and
Adamson got to know each
other through letters and later
through limited visits "in
different sides of glass
dividers" at the prison.
Adamson was sent to the
prison in 1964 to serve two
concurrent 20-to-40 year
sentences for second-degree
murder and aggravated
robbery. He also has
convictions for narcotics
possession and bank robbery.
"We know each other better
than any two people I know,"
Miss Lyon said.
"Our relationship is not
based on sex. We have a
common bond on friendship.
We're willing to wait because
we love each other."
Oil embargo
BEIRUT (AP) King Feisal
of Saudi Arabia has promised
to continue the Arab oil
embargo against the United

reported today.
It quoted the Monarch as
saying: "The oil measures
taken in support of the Arab
battle will remain in effect
until the U.N. Security
Council's repeated ceasefire
resolutions are implemented.


America with the request to
send their representatives to
the area of military actions in
order to observe the fulfilment
of the decision of the security
council on the ceasefire.
"We expressed our readiness
to satisfy igypt's request and
have already sent such
representatives. We hope that
the Government of the United
States of America will act in
the same way.
"Together with this we are
considering other possible
measures, whose adoption the
situation might demand. In
connection with continued
violations of the ceasefire on
Oct. 25, the Security Council
of the United Nations adopted
a decision on immediate
creation of an extraordinary
force of the United Nations,
which would be sent to the
area of military actions.
"We consider that this is a
useful decision. And hope that
it will play its role in
normalizing the situation.
"The Soviet Union is ready
to cooperate in the cause of
normalizing the situation in the
Middle East along with all
interested countries.

35-MINUTE OVATION

FOR CALLAS RETURN

HAMBURG, West Germany (AP) Soprano Maria Callas
received a 35-minute ovation at the end of her first concert
in eight years.
Critics said privately her performance here was
disappointing.
One observer said the singer had lost both her trill and
the gloss in her voice.
She sang mostly duets with Italian tenor Guiseppe Di
Stefano for an audience of 3,000 at Hamburg's Concert
Centre.
She drew thunderous applause at one point for her solo
renditions of a passage from "Don Carlos," in which she
revived the great Callas sound of yesteryear with the low
notes.
Actress Elizabeth Taylor, adorned with necklaces of
diamonds and pearls, joined the audience after the first
number.
Miss Callas' performance was the start of a world tour,
with appearances in Europe, Asia, Australia and the United
States.


DOLLAR

RISES

SHARPLY
LONDON (AP) The U.S.
dollar rose sharply on
European money markets
today.
Dealers attributed the
dollar's firmness to reports that
U.S. trade figures to be
announced later in the day
would show a massive surplus.
Also contributing to its rise
was the U.N. Security Council
resolution averting a
superpower confrontation.
In ZURICH. the dollar
soared to a new fourth-month
high, and stood at 3.0455
Swiss francs, up sharply from
3.0037 yesterday.
In PARIS, the commercial
rate was 4.215 French francs,
up from 4.17375 the day
before.
In FRANKFURT, it was
2.4235 marks, up from 2.4045
yesterday.
As the dollar strengthened,
the pound sterling eased back.
It was $2.4355 today, down
from 2.4430 dollars the day
before.
Gold was irregular. In
London, the dollar price for
gold was down to $98.50 an
ounce. from 100.25 the day
before. But in Zurich it firmed
to $100.25, up from 99.75.


Massive trade


surplus for U.S.

WASHINGTON (AP) The United States had a trade surplus,
during September of $873 million the biggest single
monthly surplus in more than eight years, the Department ot
Commerce reported today.
The huge surplus of exports over imports surprised even US
Government trade officials.
Exports totalled $6,448,400,000 and imports onl
$5,575,100,000 an increase of 7.4 per cent for exports and a
decline of 7.4 per cent for imports from a month earlier.
The September surplus also put the United States' trade for tihe
first nine months of the year into surplus by $153 million.
The figures indicated the United States has a good chance of
recording a trade surplus this year following deficits of six billion
dollars in 1972 and two billion dollars in 1971.
The Commerce Department said the big jump in Septembcd
exports was in civilian aircraft, machinery, chemicals and textiles
The decline in imports occurred in consumer goods, crmdt
petroleum, steel and nonferrous metals.

Eccentric millionaire Howard
Hughes and two other tycoons

the Los Angeles Times said
today.
The Times, quoting an
unidentified source close to
Kalmbach, said the other two

burglaries.
After searches of their homes,
nine of those accused were arrested.


Police arrest 27 'guerillas'


MEXICO CIIY (AP)
Police today announced the
arrest of 27 alleged guerrillas
trained in North Korea and
charged them with conspiracy
to overthrow the government.
A police statement
identified those arrested as
members of the Armed
Revolutionary Movement
(MAR), one of the original
guerrilla groups in Mexico,
active in the past three years.
Police said the arrested
persons confessed their goal
was to "change the government
into a socialist system."


They also were charged with
scores of bank robberies in
more than five states and were
linked to other terrorist groups
in the country, inlcuding one
in Guadalajara believed to have
been responsible for recent
kidnapping there.
The police did not say when
or where the arrests were
carried out.
"They were trained in North
Korea and are responsible for
robberies in banks and business
establishments," the police
statement said.
They were linked to the


September 23 movement in
Guadalajara believed to have
carried out the .kidnapping of
the U.S. consul there, Terrance
Leonhardy last May, and the
abductions earlier this month
of British honorary consul
Anthony Williams and
industrialist Fernando
Aranguren who was found
dead.
The MAR has been blamed
since 1971 by Mexican police
for assaults and bank robberies
in Mexico City and other
Mexican areas.


re-election campaign.
But The Times' source
was quoted as saying Kalmbach
had been unclear about how
contributions by such wealthy
men were being handled.
The Times story did not say
whether Ludwig or MacArthur
actually made donations.
A $100,000 Hughes
donation, said to have gone
unused and later returned, has
been described previously.
The source also said he
thought Maurice H. Stans, head
of the 1972 Nixon Campaign
Finance Committee, "would
probably have known" about
the three solicitations because
"Stans had his hand on the
throttle totally."

SED ITORIAL

In the bowels of a ship



By ETIENNE DUPUCH
FOR a whole week now I have taken your minds off politics
and conducted you on an excursion to the spirit world. This will
be my last story in this series.
When I boarded the sailing schooner Zellers in the harbour of
Nassau in the summer of 1916 as a member of a Bahamas War
Contingent, this was to be my first adventure beyond the
boundaries of the Bahamas.
At that time Jamaica was the headquarters for all L,'miig tiil.
from British West Indian islands. We were supposedly headed for
Kingston to join a battalion there for training and then for
transport to a final training camp on the Sahara desert in Egypt.
This was the first world.war. The next few weeks of my life
were crowded with adventure and new experiences that I could
not have anticipated.
I will just hit the high spots in most of these adventures
but....as you may have guessed....the main story will be about an
encounter with death down in the bowels of the transport s.s.
Magdalena on the high seas between Jamaica and Alexandria.

The sailing vessel that took us to Jamaica had been placed at
the disposal of the government by Mr. Horace V. Myers, father of
Eustace Myers of the Jamaica rum firm bearing that name.
In exchange for this service we stopped at Ragged Island to
take on a load of salt for the Myers firm. This was my first
introduction to hard labour. While anchored off Ragged Island I
got into a fight with one of the boys that almost landed me in the
clink. But we will skip this one.
After leaving Ragged Island we were becalmed for several days
off the coast of Jamaica. During this time we had a strange
encounter with a school of excited and apparently hungry sharks.
We had also run out of fresh water and were parched for thirst.
We were drinking bilgy water that made us sick at the stomach.
There was no barometer on board the vessel to indicate that
this was the calm before a great storm. Happily, a brisk breeze
sprung up that speeded our way to the harbour at Port Royal.
We didn't go to Kingston, as we had hoped. We were taken to
the small village of Port Royal, remnant of the former capital of
this island that had been sucked into the bottom of the sea by an
earthquake and tidal wave early in the last century. The reason
for this change was that the former contingent from the Bahamas
had engaged in a big fight in the Kingston camp with a group of
Jamaicans. And so, our group was isolated at the uninteresting
village of dirty shacks in Port Royal,
We had hardly settled in our billets before the island was struck
by one of the worst hurricanes in its history and we were turned
out for rescue work. It was said that this hurricane set the banana
industry back 10 years.

Our departure from Jamaica was delayed several days because a
fire had broken out in the bunkers of the transport lIag,lalena
It was thought that the fire had been put out but several days
after sailing when we were in the dangerous submarine /one
and could not break radio silence the fire broke out again.
The decks of this ship were hellishly hot. This normal heat was
greatly increased by the fire below. Wisps of smoke came floating
up through the deck but the fire was kept under control.
There were over 1,000 men in this battalion. We were all
crowded in hammocks down in the bowels of the ship. Hlad we
been struck by a torpedo from a submarine none of us could have
escaped.
We were subject to great exposure on this ship and soon many
of the men went down with pneumonia. We had a funeral at sea
almost every day....and two the day just before we entered the
harbour at Gibraltar where I saw the first submarine gliding
alongside our ship, just below the surface of the water. Happily it
was one of our submarines.

When we got into the danger zone we were joined by a cruiser
as escort. A small gun was mounted in the stern of our ship as we
proceeded on a zig-zag course. An English gunner came aboard to
man the gun.
We were then paraded on deck and an officer asked for two
volunteers to feed the gun with ammunition in case of attack.

Ray Gibson from Savannah Sound had become my buddy after
we met in the army. This was a natural relationship because his
grandfather, John Solomon Gibson, a great public speaker who
was known in the Bahamas as "a silver tongued orator," had been
a great friend of my father. Ray, who died in New York a few
years ago, was a cousin of Timothy Gibson, famed Bahamian song
writer and composer of the new Bahamas National Anthem. The
Gibson family have produced some of the islands' most
outstanding teachers.
Simultaneously....without any previous arrangement....Ray and
I stepped forward as volunteers and we were given the job.
We were very happy about this arrangement. Our first night on
deck in the stern of the ship was brilliant moonlight. Ray and I
sat talking together until way past midnight. What a relief it was
to escape from the hold of the ship where over a thousand
stinking bodies were herded together like cattle.


Oh yes. we were all stink by that time because there wereno
bathing facilities on board ship for the men. Worse still, we had
been attacked by millions of body lice left behind in the ship by
previous contingents of men who had probably been in the field a
long time.
Before going on deck with the gun. Ray and I had explored the
area where we were located. Just below the gun was a room in
which was an emergency rudder for steering the ship in case of
attack and on the floor were many sheets of canvas. This was a
cozy place.
We decided that we would bunk in this room.
I got tired first and decided to retire. Ray said he would come
down later. And so I went below and bedded myself down in the
canvas.
I soon fell asleep and then I seemed to dream that men came
into the room with a bundle, saw me lying there and seemed
surprised. One of them said to the other: "That's only another
stiff".

And then I sank back into another deep sleep. The next thing I
knew I was cold and shivering. I was conscious of a body lying
close to mine. I thought it was Ray and turned over to snuggle up
to him for the warmth of his !'.1J,.
And I struck cold flesh!
Boy...."foot don't deceive me". I was out on the deck in a
flash. And there was Ray still quietly enjoying the moonlight.
Was this a ghost?
Ray went back with me to see.
It was the body of one of our men who had died during the
night. Then we realized that this was the place where they
brought the dead and the canvas on which I had made my bed
was the material in which the bodies were sewn up for burial at
sea!
Boy....that was ,. ielshiii_' else!

Conditions on that ship were really a disgrace. We had a doctor
in our group. But there was no hospital. A hospital was
improvised for these men, who were dying from pneumonia in
consequence of unaccustomed exposure, by enclosing an area of
the deck with burlap. Believe it or not, the doctor had no
medicines. not even a bottle of aspirin!

But this was not to be the end of our introduction to
adventure in the early days of our military service overseas.
It rains about twice a year on the desert....and when it rains,
it's a deluge.
When we arrived at Mex Camp on the Sahara men already
stationed there had erected tents for our accommodation but
they had not anticipated a storm and so they had not trenched
around the tents to provide drainage in case of rain.
That night all hell broke loose. A terrible hail storm struck the
camp. Every tent eas flattened. The men ran to two large mess
halls nearby but they provided no shelter because they leaked like
a sieve.
Most people associate the desert with heat. The days are as hot
as hell, the nights are freezing cold.
The next day over 200 of our 1000-man battalion went to
hospital. Pneumonia. Few of them returned.

This was the first time I was to realize that muscle was not the
real test of strength in a human being. Stamina is the real test-
This is why, in many ways, women. who are bom to pain. have
greater endurance than men.
The strongest man in our contingent was a sponger from
Andros. I have been trying to remember his name. I think it was
Simpson.
One day in the dockyard at Port Royal a group of us saw a
large anchor embedded in the sand. About a half dozen of us got
around it and tried to move it but it wouldn't budge.
Simpson watched our efforts with amusement. And then he
casually came tip and lifted the damn thing with one hand.
Simpson was among the 200 who went to hospital the morning
after the hail stonnrm on the desert. He was one of those who did
not return.
As time passed we found that it was the small, wiry men who
had come out of well nourished homes who had the stamina to
survive this new way of life to which we were being exposed.

We had hardly recovered from the exposure of the night when
the bugle sounded the "Fall In".
After we were all lined up on parade a small man....hardly
more than 5 feet tall ... bearing himself in a proud soldierly
fashion took charge.
Hle was the Regimental Sergeant Major in charge of our training
programme. This man was small but he was one of the finest
soldiers I have ever known.
"I have heard that some of you men are tough," he told us.
"That doesn't worry us. You are in the British army now. We are
either going to make good soldiers out of you or bury you here in
this sand.
"You needn't get the idea that if you give us trouble we will
send you back to your homes. Oh no. Remember it doesn't cost
uts a damn thing to bury you.
"Don't ever forget, you can't break the British army. You can
only break your bleeding mothers' hearts.
"Parade Dismisshed".

We were soon to realize that he was not joking.

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY
And now 1 see with eye ser.ne.
The very pulse of the machine,
A being breathing thoughtful breath,
A traveller betwixt life and death:
The reason firm, the temperate will,
Endurance, foresight, strength, and skill
A perfect woman nobly planned,
To warm, comfort, and command
And yet a spirit still, and bright
With something of angelic light. WORDSWORTH

AND SPOIL



YOURSELF



A LITTLE

TllE N|W in-place to go
toda I understand, is the
Swank Club which re-opened a
month ago very quietly and
thaI t was the onlI day that it
has been quiet
the Swank Club is the only'
non-h hotel restaurant and
lounge on C('able Beach and
therefore is ver\ hand\ for
those who live. vacation or
work at the western end of the
island
Residents swarm iin every
night to sample tlie decisions
islandd seafood .and native
dishes.
The decor has been changed
to give a pleasant atmosphere
ano tie exterior panelled and
lightedd to enhance its new
image. A dance floor was
i;L'dcd


As ecs of *1is I


The social hour, an ideal
time for those on their way
home from work to relax, is
from 5: 30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at
Ahich complimentary hours
d'oeuvres are served with all
popular drinks wh ich cost
S1.00.
( harl-, Smith, known
affectionately as "Sticks", is
the capable manager.
Of course the Swank (Club is
not otInl a supper club. It
opens at 11 30 a.m. for
lunches. Already it is %ers
popular with local residents
and btisiness people who are
enjoying the luncheon specials
at competitive prices for the
"swank surroundings.
The specials which are
changed every day range in
prices trom S2 to S3 and


consist of such popular native
dishes as curried chicken and
steanm fish and peas and rice.
laped music was initially
provided but now this is only
used to fill in for the Swank
Club now boasts a live band in
the person of Paul Hanna,
popular and versatile Bahamian
musician and entertainer.
Paul began to plta the piano
at the age of three and hasn't
looked back since. At the age
ot nine or ten he was brought
to the attention of Freddie
Munnings by a piece he played
on the piano at the Cat and
1Fiddle.
Paul recently spent nine
months in Canada where he
played at "Le Pottage" and
"Bachelors 3" in Montreal.
Before going to Canada. Paul


had a quartet and was engaged
at the Sonesta Beach. Up until
recently he has delighted
patrons at the elegant Show
Magazine Club.
Paul has some records to his
credit -- an album entitled
"Introducing the Paul Hanna
Quartet" and also a 45 "Keep
Growing Strong".
Paul's music is as delightful
to dance to as his voice is to
listen to.
Paul's band plavs from 9:30
p.m. until 2:30 a.m.
So for a new place and a new
venue for lunch, cocktails or
for a night on the town try the
Swank Club which boasts that,
with the combination of food
and entertainment featured
there, it is the "swingingest",
"swankest" club on the island.

Help for frustrated pair


at professional sex clinic

DEAR ABBY: My wife and I have been married for
nearly 20 years. We have three well-adjusted children, a
lovely home, and an excellent income. We love and respect
each other, have a good social life, and just about every-
thing one could ask for. What's our problem? Our sex lives.
We have none.
My wife was a virgin when I married her, and I had
very little experience for a 22-year-old college graduate. I
know I never really satisfied her, but she never com-
plained. I felt like a failure, so I just quit trying. I've never
- cheated on my wife and I never will. Occasionally one of us
will initiate some foreplay because we are both very affec-
tionate, but it always ends in humiliation for me. She says
it's not important to her and I shouldn't worry about it, but
I do. I know I'm cheating her. And I'm cheating myself,
too, because I hear that some couples in their 60s enjoy
sex. Don't suggest psychiatry. I've had two years of that
and got nowhere. What do you say? MISSING SOMETHING
DEAR MISSING: If you love each other and are prop-
erly motivated, there IS hope. If you can afford to spend
$2.500, and 10 days to two weeks in St. Louis at the Masters
and Johnson Clinic, I recommend it. They are specialists in
sexual dysfunction, and have done a remarkable job of
rehabilitating couples after everything else including psy-
chiatry] has failed. Your visit there will be strictly confi-
dential.
DEAR ABBY: I am a 23-year-old divorcee with a four-
year-old daughter. People tell me I'm very attractive and
have a good personality. I'm a receptionist, meet many
men and get invited out often.
Larry is 46; he was married when he was 17, but it was
annulled. He married again at 21; that lasted a year. Later
he married a divorcee and they stayed married for 15
years. He doesn't look his age and I find him very excit-
ing. We date four or five nights a week. He loves sports,
and we see all the baseball, football, hockey, and basketball
games. We have a great time together, and I keep thinking
how marvelous it would be to be married to him.
That's the problem. Larry says marriage is the kiss of
death to romance. Is he right? Am I a hopeless romantic?
Hw's getting all the privileges of marriage with none of the
responsibilities. I know he cares for me, but how can I get
him to marry me? Is an ultimatum the answer?
WANTS MARRIAGE
DEAR WANTS: Don't give him an ultimatum unless
you're prepared to lose him. At least he's honest and isn't
leading you on. If it's marriage you want, look for a man
who's marriageable. Larry isn't.
DEAR ABBY: I know you have stated a dozen times
that it is improper to write "no gifts, please" on invita-
tions, but something must be done about showering expen-
sive gifts on older people who neither want nor need them.
I am soon to celebrate my 50th wedding anniversary,
and I do not want a truckload of "things" for which I have
no use.
There are so many lovely friends and relatives who go
overboard, spending their hard-earned money for these
useless gifts.
We want to entertain our friends, but we absolutely do
not want them to bring or send us any presents. Isn't there
some way we can let our wishes be known without being ill-
mannered? NO GIFTS, PLEASE
DEAR NO GIFTS: Requesting "no gifts" on an invita-
tion is suggesting that gifts are expected. A close friend or
relative can spread the word that a contribution to some
-worthy cause in honor of your "50th" would be your prefer-
ence.

THE MINISTRY OF
AGRI('ULTURE and Fisheries
has already launched its "Grow
MNore Food Campaign." And it
is probably gaining a great deal
of immediacy among
Bahamians and non-Bahamians
alike in view of the rise in the
prices of imported food in
recent months.
One aspect of the Ministry's
plan to make the
Commonwealth of the
Bahamas more self-sufficient in
food supplies has been the
establishment of the Gladstone
Road Central Agricultural
Station, which is primarily a
research facility. Another step
has been the provision to
farmers by Government of the
200-acre Miller Road project.
Last night at 8:30 p.m. over
Radio Bahamas, the Public
Affairs feature programme
"'Spotlight" took as its theme
for National Discussion the
"Grow More Food Campaign."
Those taking part in the
programme were the Hon.
Lynden 0. Pindling, Prime
Minister and Minister of
Economic Affairs: Miss Telzena
Coakley of the Ministry of
Education, who served as
chairman: and Eddison Key of
Key and Sawyer, Marsh
Harbour, Abaco, as a Family
Island farmer.
Also participating, and
shown above from left to right.
(back row) are: Mike Smith of
Radio Bahamas, who
introduced the programme: the


lion. Carlton Francis. M P. and
Minister of Development,
Agriculture and Fisheries: Miss
Yvonne McKenzie. secretary,
Public Affairs Department: E.
11. Godet of Godet Farms. off
Carmichael Road: C. A. Smith,
manager of the Potters Cay
Produce Exchange: and Sydney
Russell, who is in charge of the
Central Agricultural Station. In
front are: lionel L. Davis,

NEW YORK (AP) Which
makes a nation more corrupt.
poverty or wealth?
The question produced
sharp discussion but no
conclusions at a United
Nations panel of national
planners, economists and
journalists.
)ieter Buhl, editor of the
West German weekly Die /eit.
told the meeting that evidence
ot corruption in needy
countries tends to discourage
aid from tile richer nations.
If there's corruption in the
developing countries, it's
because "one of the most
important incentives to)
corruption is to be poor," lDr
J. P. Pronk, Netherlands
Minister of Development
Cooperation declared.
Much of the corruption is
introduced b> foreign
businessmen, with their
conspicuous spending, he
added.

As people drink more. the

more obvious and people tend

Skin. Alcohol dilates the

l)r A. Adedeji. Nigeria's


commissioner for Economic

Some very poor countries

"some very rich countries have
standards that leave much to

FREEPORT Lucaya will be
visited by three cruise ships-
making five calls and bringing
some 1,850 visitors during the
14-day period which began
yesterday says the Freeport
Harbour Co. Ltd.
Calling at Freeport will be
Eastern Steamship Line's S.S.
Bahama Star, Costa Line's S.S.
Flavia, and Greek Line's S.S.
Olympia.
The S.S. Bahama Star was
scheduled to dock in Freeport
from Miami yesterday and
November 1 at 1.00 p.m. with
300 passengers each voyage,
and the S.S. Flavia from Miami
via Nassau at 11 a.m. on the
same dates with 400 passengers
each voyage.
The S.S. Olympia is
scheduled to arrive from
Philadelphia on Monday
November 5 at 5 p.m. with 450
passengers.
Over the last two
weeks (llth October-24th
October) there were 2122
cruise visitors to
Freeport/Lucaya. The Skyward
made two calls with 1091,
Bahama Star, one call with
205, Flavia one call with 386,
and the Veendam one call with
440 passengers.


IN AN all out effort to involve
the community in the number
one industry of Grand Bahama
Tourism and to educate
the public on the importance
of tourism to the economic
welfare of the island, a
Freeport/Lucaya junior
promotion board was formed
recently.
C('o-ordinato7 for the junior
board is Mrs. Erma
Grant-Smith and president is
Anthony McDonald, a student
at Freeport High School.
The new junior board has
attracted some 20 members to
date and expects to increase its

The first official duty of the
youthful board was performed
at the Freeport International
Airport, when members
welcomed the first plane load
of Chevrolet conventioneers.

Life begins at 40? Not


if you're looking for a job


GENEVA (AP) Life
begins at 40 is a saying that
may be fit for a birthday party.
But it may take on a bitter
taste for many in the senior
league if they look for a new
job. The International
Labour Organization has begun
an inquiry into the status of
the older working people and a
preliminary survey stressed this
week the "need to fight
prejudice and discrimination."'
Close to one billion men and
women, more than a fourth of
ihe world population, are 40 or
older and in the industrialized
countries of both west and east
the ratio is already one in
three.
Forecasts cited by ILO say
the share of older people will
continue to increase because of
better health care.
According to data from
major industrialized countries,
workers over 45 can count on
waiting four times as long for a
new job than youths under 20.


People who are 50 and older
make up two-thirds of all
longtime unemployed in "some
countries."
"Manual labourers are
usually hit first and hardest,"
the ILO survey said. "Perhaps
the best insurance against
losing ones job is high
professional qualification
coupled with lifelong


education and training."
"Office workers and
executives are also affected.
After a long struggle, some give
up. Psychiatric clinics are full
of these middle-aged dropouts.
"The unemployment rate
for aging women has long been
some-what higher than for
men. This gap has been
widening recently..."

'Fed up' Penn raps members


IHAVING shouldered most,
of the responsibilities of the
Baihamas Baseball Association
since the resignation of
president Mr. Tony Curry
earlier this year. Mr. Rudy
Penn. acting vice president of
the association, said he was fed
up with the negligence of
many ot his fellow committee
nmelbers and will not be
seeking the presidency post in
the coming elections.
Speaking dunng last night's
B B.A. awards presentation,
Mr Penn thought a
retormiation ot the B.B.A.
would be in the best interest of
the (rgani/ation.
"1 he whole bunch of them
need to resign.'" he said of the
B.B.A. officials.
"It is eas. for a person to
stand on the side and criticise
thise who go out there and do
something he said. "Many
Just cornice out there, laugh and
go homeC. I can't go through
that again."
Mr. Penn brought to the
Judience's attention that there
w ere many nights he went
down to the Queen Elizabeth
Sports Centre the home of
the 1973 series and found it
soaked witi water.
\lr i.,ugh other committee
Itmembers might have%
a knowledge of this, he said
that he had to "scrape up
guoi s" outside the association
to help him get the field in
play hle condition.
Mr. Penn was not a voted
nemitber of the association's
commtiittee but was elected by
Mr (aurrt after the voted


vice-president failed to do his
duty. With the season nearing
its end, Mr. Curry resigned
leaving him with the
responsibilities of the
association. and with very few
people to call on for help.

Added to his load was the
fact that the Wichita
tournament was already on the
table and financially, the
B.B.A. at that time was low.
Prior to this, former
president Oswald Brown cited


that he was seeking the post ot
presidency.
Mr. Penn thinks that 13Broin
is the ideal person at this tune
to steer the B.B.A.
Contacted this morning. Mr.
Brown confirmed that he will
be seeking the chief executive
post. "Baseball has reached the
stage where it needs tot take
new directions," he said.
"What is needed mno is the
establishment of manaIgeient
committees for the \t itnous
functions of the association


THIS YEAR'S Bahamas
Cricket Association league
champions, the Southerners,
will endeavour to crown a
superb season with the KO cup
title where they clash with
former BCA league champions
and three times KO cup
winners in the final of the 30
over KO cup tomorrow at St.
Bernards Park.
The Southerners showed
fine form in the semi-final
when they demolished the


Junior league batting champ Kenny Fawkes accepts his award from Atlanta Braves
pitcher Wenty Ford.


BOTH Ed Armbrister and
Wenty Ford speaking to last
night's audience during the
Bahamas Baseball Association's
awards presentation banquet
said the road to the major
league was not as easy as it
seemed.
Junior league pennant
winners Flamingo A's manager
Chris Ferguson in an all-out
effort is trying to make the
road easier for the junior
leaguers so that they will be
ready when the scouts come.
Ferguson's dedication has
paid off in more ways than
one. He has not only led
Flamingo A's to two
consecutive championship
victories but through his hands
have passed outstanding
players including 1973 rookie
of the year Adlai Moss and
1972 rookie of the year
Eugene Higgs.
"I am going to work with
them all the time," said
Ferguson. "I am going to try
and bring out of the guys what
they have in them."
Last year's manager of the
year pointed out that many
junior leaguers think that
baseball is just getting a hit and
sliding into a base.
However, he looks further
than that.
He intends to teach them to
have more speed, a better
throwing arm, how to hit the
ball better and on the whole
how to have better effect in
the game.
Nevertheless, in order that
his dreams might become a
reality what Ferguson and the
Junior League Association
really need is that much
needed assistance from their
senior counterpart.
"You can count on one hand
the amount of support the
senior league gives the juniors,"
commented Ferguson.
"Attention. That's what
they (junior leaguers) need.
They need someone to tell
them that they are the future
ball players ,f the Bahamas.
With this in mind, they will get
themselves together and play


good ball."
Becks manager Burnice
Turnquest also noted that "as
long as they help the junior
league baseball will be much
better. "The foundation of
baseball in the future lies in the
junior league where he sees a
lot of good prospects.
Ferguson noted that the
interest sponsors Caldwell
Armbrister and Horace Miller
took in the team also helped a
lot in their domination of the
junior league. From those
interested sponsors, the A's got
their necessary equipment.
Simeon Anderson who
represented the sponsors last
night pointed out that they
intend to keep the team going
until.....
Edging Ferguson out of the
manager of the year was rookie
manager from A.I.D. Royals

Dry irony for yachtsmen


CAPE TOWN (AP) The
irony which faced the crew of
the French yacht Trente Toirs
Export, which carries the name
of a French beer and is taking
part in the round the world
race sponsored by Whitebread's
brewery, was that at no time
on the first leg between
Portsmouth and Cape Town
did the crew have any beer.
The beer sent to them from


France by the sponsors, was
embargoed at the British
customs before the start of the
race and they set sail with only
a limited supply of wine.
En route the water tank plug
was damaged and sea water
leaked into their freshwater
supply, so a strict limitation on
drinking water was also
necessary.


Paradise bowling attack to the
tune of 158 in 30 overs (a
record score for the
competition).
Leading the run spree was
hardhitting Southerners
batsman Harry Dean who
blazed a pugnacious 73 out of
the record score of 158.
Dean and George Ferguson
should form the nucleus of a
strong Southerners batting
lineup while paceman 'Tack'
Thompson, who headed this


season's League bowling
averages (43 wickets at 7.46
each) and leftarm
mediumpacer George Deveaux
will make up the bowling
attack.
St. Bernards are the more
experienced side in limited over
cricket, having won the
competition for the past three
years and although they might
be slightly weaker on paper,
their past experiences in the
KO cup final might be a telling
factor tomorrow.


Batting Champ Anthony "Poker" Huyler accepts his
trophy from major leaguer Ed Armbrister.
