Health Minister answers critics over hospital & health services


By NICKI KELLY
HEALTH MINISTER LOFTUS ROKER yesterday made a
"pronouncement" on the affairs of his Ministry after choosing foar
some time to ignore criticism "from persons not sufficiently
responsible to check the accuracy of their statements."


The Minister was pricked
into response as the result of a
number of letters in the press
and several news stories
relating to the administration
of the hospital and the health
services generally.
In a communication to the
House Mr. Roker gave his side
on the resignation of Dr. D. P.
Duffy, chief of Staff at the
Princess Margaret Hospital, the
failure to renew the contract of
radiologist Richard Morgan,
the alleged shortage of drugs,
the hospital extension,
unionisation of doctors and the
treatment received by a dying
patient.
"Over the last few months a
number of attempts has been
made through the medium of
the local press generally to
discredit the policies and
administration of the Ministry
of Health and more
particularly to condemn the
standard of health care
provided at the Princess
Margaret Hospital," Mr. Roker
said.
"I had chosen to remain
silent on the criticisms which
were levelled because as a
private individual I have always
felt that allegations made by
persons who are not
sufficiently responsible to
check the accuracy of their
statements do not merit a
rebuttal.
PRONOUNCEMENT
"However, as the Minister
charged with the responsibility
for the health services, I feel
that the time has come when I
should make a pronouncement
for the benefit of the public
who contribute the funds used
*in4 providing health care."
Mr. Roker said such
criticism would not affect his
Ministry's determination to
press on with the task of
improving the health services.
The process of
reorganization in 1972 was
continuing satisfactorily and
already there were tangible
signs of imimprovement in
many areas, he said.
The press items to which the
Minister took exception were:
A July 4 letter to The
Guardian signed by Terrence
Dean which deplored the fact
that Mr. Roker had chosen to
bring to the public's attention
the failure of a number of food
catering establishments to
observe the proper health
standards required by law.
VIGILANCE
The Minister argued that it
was his responsibility to
safeguard the health of the
Bahamian people and his
Ministry would continue its
vigilance "to ensure that as far
as possible the health of the
public is not jeopardized by
the importation and sale of
food or drinks found to be
unfit for human consumption "
An August 13 letter in The
Guardian signed with the
pseudonym "Enquirer," which
drew attention to the delays
occurring in the construction
of the Princess Margaret
extension.
Mr. Roker denied the delays
were due to a shortage of funds
"as some prophets of doom
had already predicted."
"It is of primary concern to
my Ministry that the extension
should be built as economically
as possible and at the same
time that the structure should
permitt the optimum functional
facilities calculated to serve not
merely the obvious present day
needs but to anticipate and
incorporate into the planning
process as far as is
practicable such additional
amenities as would meet the
needs of the foreseeable
future"'"
WHIlY SO LONG?
Contrary to the letter
writer's allegation that only the
cornerstone had been laid, Mr.
Roker reported that "major
preliminary works have been
completed."

He said the steel frame had
been erected, the concrete


floor slab had been poured and
consideration was now being
given to awarding a contract

The Minister did not explain
why it took eight months to do
this.


He then proceeded to cite
specific news stories of which
he was critical.

WATER SITUATION
Mr. Watkins gave notice that
at the next meeting of the
House next Wednesday, he will
seek appointment of a select
committee "to enquire into the
water situation in New
Providence and all matters
related thereto."
A bid by Mr. Solomon for a
similar committee in the
legislature's last session was
voted down by the
Government.
Opposition Leader Kendal
G. L. Isaacs (FNM-Fort
Montagu) gave notice
Wednesday that next week he
will ask for a committee "to
take into consideration the
Trade Unions and Industrial
Conciliation Act 1970 and all
matters related thereto."
When The Tribune this
morning pointed out to an
FNM spokesman that the
Trade Unions and Industrial
Conciliation Act was repealed
in 1970 and replaced by the
Industrial Relations Act, the
spokesman said House Speaker
Arlington Butler would be
asked to amend the notice.
accordingly.
The Industrial Relations Act
has in recent months been
severely criticised by a number
of unionists, and Labour
Minister Clifford L. Darling
conceded during the PLP
convention in Freeport last
month that "with the
experience gained to date it
may now be necessary to look
at what ways the Industrial
Relations Act could be
improved."

MORE QUERIES


BY 2 MPs

ON HOSPITAL
THE $6.5 MILLION
hospital extension and the
departure of its Chief of Staff
and radiologist continue to be
an issue as was demonstrated
by questions raised by the
Opposition in the House
yesterday.
Both Clarence Town
representative Michael
Lightbourn, who now sits as an
Independent, and North Long
Island representative Cyril
Fountain (FNM) have asked
for a further explanation
beyond that supplied by
Minister Loftus Roker in a
communication to members
Wednesday.
Between them the two
members have asked what
phases of the extension have
been completed, and what
remains to be done; whether
bids or contracts had been
handled for construction of the
remaining phases; if financing
was available to complete the
extension, whether the
estimated cost for the project
had been revised and the date
when the extension is to be
completed.
On radiologist Dr. Richard
Morgan, the representatives
have questioned why Dr.
Morgan's contract was not
renewed: whether or not
another radiologist was
available to take his place; the
amount collected by the
Ministry in fees during the
12-week tenure of the
substitute radiologists: if a
Bahamian radiologist was
available to take Dr. Morgan's
place and whether using
temporary radiologists was a
satisfactory arrangement.
Mr. Fountain has in addition
asked for an explanation
regarding the resignation of Dr.
Graeme Duffy, neurosurgeon
and Chief of Staff, whether
any plans have been made to
replace him with another
Mr. Lightbourn has also
asked the Minister to inform
the House of the source of

to advise members whether the
extension was put out to bid
and if so, the amounts of all
bids received.

Golden Isles hikes milk



price 24 cents a gallon


GOLDEN ISLES FARMS Ltd. announced today that the
wholesale price of its milk, the only fresh milk produced
commercially in the Bahamas, will be raised by 24 cents a gallon
effective today.


"Our last price increase was
on October 1st, 1970", Leon
O'Quinn, general manager said
Wednesday. "In the intervening
three years, the wholesale price
of milk in Florida has been
increased by over 50c a gallon
22c of which has taken place
in the past 3 months, in
successive increases of 9c, 4c
and 9c. Our increase of 24c at
this time amounts to less than
half the increase Florida milk
producers have found it
necessary to impose over the
same three years.
"The decision to increase
the price of Golden Isles milk
at this time is taken with the
utmost reluctance" Mr.
O'Quinn continued. "It is
primarily necessitated by sharp
recent increases in the cost of
animal feed stuff, which must
be imported from abroad and
which are essential to the
balanced nourishment of
healthy milk-producing cows.
It is also necessitated by the
increased cost of dairy cattle,
since we have had to import a
large number of purebred,
top-quality cows to augment
our herd, to meet the current
local demand for fresh milk."
Located north of Windsor
Road and west of the airport,
Golden Isles Farms produces
milk from a herd of
approximately 600 cattle kept
in ten modern shaded feeding
lots, each designed for 100
head. The milking parlour,
built in 1972, is ultra-modern.
It provides for automatic
milking and strictly hygenic
automatic transfer of the
milk from the cows to
refrigerated holding tanks. The
mill is then moved in a
stainless steel tank truck to the
company's dairy plant on
Carmichael Road, where it is
pasteurized, homogenized and
packaged for daily delivery to

our customers," the spokesman
add.

WRONG ON ZNS

BEC CHAIRMAN Preston
Albury, M.P. today confirmed
that Radio Bahamas reports of
a "three-quarters of one
percent" increase in electricity
rates was incorrect.
Works Minister Simeon Bow,
announcing the increase in the
House yesterday, said the rates
would be increased, effective
immediately, by three-quarters
of one cent per unit consumed
an overall increase of about
16 percent.
Mr. Albury said this morning
he would call the radio station
to request a correction.


THREE STATEMENTS
made by accused Phillip
"Polka" Humes, 20, to police
in connection with the murder
of a Free National Movement
supporter on September 5,
1972, were ruled admissible as
evidence this morning by a
Supreme Court judge, bringing
an end to a three day
trial-within-a-trial.
Delivering his ruling this
morning Mr. Justice James
Smith said "I have come to the
conclusion on the police
evidence in the present case
that each of the three
statements 'was made
voluntarily and I so lind. Each
of them may be admitted in
evidence."
The vokintariness of two
statements was raised Friday
afternoon by Humes' counsel
Mr. David C. Bethel and
attorney Lawrence P. J.
Trenchard.
Mr. Trenchard represents
Wendell "Red" Burrows, a
25-year-old Freeport


stated that the hospital stocked
as many as eight types of
penicillin, each one of which
had more than one form of
presentation.
On the Ministry's refusal to
renew the contract of
radiologist Dr. Richard
Morgan, Mr. RoKer said the
same article attempted to
establish that he had been paid
considerably less than what is
presently being paid to those
who now provide radiological
coverage.
"The truth of the matter is
that the salary of the former
radiologist was greatly
supplemented by professional
fees which he was permitted to
collect in his capacity as
'consultant with private
practice.'
"Under the existing
arrangement all fees for
radiological services accure to
government and the
radiologists performing those
services receive no part
whatever of these fees."

QUERIES WORK

PERMIT STATUS

OF FORMER HP

THE WORK PERMIT
status of former St. Barnabas
representative Sinclair Outten
has been questioned in the
House.
Marsh Harbour
representative Errington
Watkins (Ind.) yesterday
asked Prime Minister Lynden
Pindling to state whether Mr.
Outten, who recently
disclosed he is a Turks
Islander, ever applied to the
Immigration Depaihnent tMr
a work permit.
If he did not, Mr. Watkins
wants to know whether
Immigration authorities will
be taking any action against
Mr. Outten and his former
employer (Bahamas
Electricity Corporation) for
breach of the Immigration
Act.
Mr. Outten vacated his seat
Tuesday in a letter to House
Speaker Arlington Butler.
This now makes it possible
for a by-election to be called
to elect a representative for
the district.
Mr. Outten recently
disclosed that he had learned
from his father that he was
born in Turks Island, after
being under the impression
that he was Bahamian-born.
His non-Bahamian status
would preclude his offering as
an election candidate.

SANTIAGO A report
issued by the Chilean
Government states that
ex-president Salvador Allende
shot himself with a
submachinegun and died
instantly on September 11.
The report bears the
signature of Coroner Dr.
Tomas Tobar and says that 'the
suicide shot from a
submachinegun under the chin
caused the partial destruction
of the skull, and immediate
death."


It adds that "analysis of the
skin of the hands and chin
show traces of gunpowder...."
The report concludes that
Allende died by his own hand
and reflects the possibility of
homicide, on the basis of a
medical-technical analysis of
the wounds sustained by the
Chilean president.
The suicide conclusion of
the report is supported by
statements made earlier by
Allende's personal physician,
Carlos Patricio Guijon Klein,


who is currently under
detention on an island in
southern Chile with other
members of the overthrown
Marxist government.
According to the report
issued last night, Guijon,
arrested Sept 11, said he saw
how "Allende sat down on a
red felt piece of
furniture....shot himself in the
chin....destroying the top of his
head."
The alleged statements by
Dr. Guijon Klein are said to


have been made the very same
morning of his arrest, while the
presidential palace "La
Moneda" was still on fire as a
result of aerial and artillery
bombing by the rebel forces.
The report obviously aims at
squelching stories, originating
outside Chile, that Allende was
killed by one of his bodyguards
or by rebel soldiers.
The military junta has
energetically rejected this
version of the events climaxing
in President Allende's death


SCHOOLGIRL

SLA YING:

MAN IS

ARRESTED
FAIRFAX A man released
from a psychiatric institute
two months ago on outpatient
status has been arrested in
connection with the slaying of
a career diplomat's daughter,
police say.
John Stephan Gilreath,
23, was charged with one
count of murder with attempt
to defile in the slaying of
14-year-old Natalia Parker
Semler.
The ninth grader's half-nude
body was found tied to a tree
on the campus of the Madeira
School for Girls in
nearby McLean, Virginia, on
Tuesday by her father, Peter
Semler, a career diplomat
assigned to the U.S. Arms
Control and Disarmament
Agency.
Commonwealth's Attorney
Robert Horan said Gilreath
surrendered voluntarily after
officers questioned him. He
was being held in lieu of
$100,000 bond.
Court records show Gilreath
was convicted in November,
1971, of abduction and
attempted rape involving a girl
at the same school.
Acting on the
recommendation of Gilreath's
doctors, Fairfax County
Circuit Judge William Plummer
gave Gilreath a 20-year
suspended sentence last June
on the condition he undergo
psychiatric treatment.
For the next two months,
Gilreath was ordered to report
to the psychiatric institute in
Washington each day for
treatment, probation officer
Paul Folliard said. He was
allowed to spend nights at
home.
In late August he became an
outpatient, which meant he
had to visit the facility only
twice a week.


escapes

to a

new

record
NEW YORK Escape
artist Mario Manzini, who
sees himself as the heir to
Harry Houdini, has broken
one of the legendary
master's records.
As television cameras
turned, Manzini poised
himself at the eight-foot
end of a hotel swimming
pool.
"If I can't get out," he
proclaimed, "I don't want
anyone jumping in to get
me. "He then plummeted
to the bottom, fettered by
13 sets of handcuffs.
Wiggling and twisting in
silver-studded bikini swim
trunks, Manzini struggled
with the restraints on his
arms, about 40 pounds of
deadweight metal.
And, swoosh, back to
the surface free, in 46
seconds.
"Forty-six seconds.
Whew!'" exclaimed
Manzini, 29, who grew up
in the Bronx. "Houdini
was watching me,
wherever he is."
Houdini's own best
effort at this event is said
to be 90 seconds
underwater with six sets of
handcuffs, in 1925.
Halloween was chosen
as the date for the new
record. It marks the 47th
anniversary of Houdini's
death at the age of 52.


Ford the

conciliator

WASHINGTON
Vice-president-designate Gerald
Ford offered himself today as a
conciliator between the White
House and Congress as hearings
opened on his nomination for
the nation's second highest
executive job.
At the same time, members
of the Senate Rules Committee
considering his nomination
noted. that Ford's selection
might prove as important as
the choice of a president.
In his opening statement Ford
said he could serve as "a ready
conciliator and calm
communicator" between a
beleaguered Republican
President and Democratic-con-
'trolled Congress.. (AP).


The President promised not
to discharge Jaworski, as he
had Archibald Cox, without
obtaining the consent of House
and Senate Democratic and
Republican leaders and top

committees in Congress.
Nison appeared personally in
the White House briefing room
to announce his nomination of
Saxbe, an Ohio Republican
who is not seeking re-election,
as successor to Elliot
Richardson, who resigned Oct.
20 rather than follow Nixon's
orders to fire Cox.
The President, without
answering questions then
turned the podium over to
Acting Atty. Gen. Robert
Bork, who announced that
Jaworski would become
Special Prosecutor to pursue
"the Watergate matter and
related subjects."
Bork said that Jaworski has
been "promised the full
cooperation of the executive
branch." Should Jaworski
d ecide that lie needs
presidential documents, Bork
said, "there will be no
restrictions placed on his
freedom ..."
Bork said Jaworski, a
confidant of the late President
Lyndon Johnson, would have
the same broad mandate which
had been given Cox.
In addition, Bork said that
Nixon was given "his personal
assurance" that he will not fire
Jaworski without first
consulting with the specified
Congressional leaders and
"ascertaining that their
consensus is in accord with his
proposed action."

Assembly abandoned
BRIDGETOWN (AP) The Barbados Government, its elected
representatives reduced by several absentees, failed to raise
enough members to form a quorum at a meeting of the House of
A.\ssembhly.
'I he Opposition Barbados Labour Party immediately accused it
ot "showing contempt and disregard for the people's welfare."
A quorum in the 24-seat house is nine.
When Speaker Neville Maxwell took his seat for the first time
there were only four Government members and two Opposition
Parliamentarians present.
lHe made another attempt to start proceedings 15 minutes later
when only two Government and four Opposition members were
in their seats.
Five Government Cabinet ministers, including Prime Minister
'rrol Barrow, were away from the island at the time.


to obtain confidential White
House tapes and documents
touched off a massive
controversy and triggered
moves to start impeachment
proceedings.
Bork underscored the same
point saying: "Mr. Jaworski is
not coming on with any
limitations on his freedom of
action."
But the bearded former Yale
Professor who assumed the role
as acting attorney general on
Oct. 20 and fired Cox as his
first act said he does not
expect continued court battles
over access to White House
tapes and documents.
"I anticipate reasonableness
on both sides," he said
As for the other staff of
investigators and prosecutors
that Cox had formed, Bork
indicated be believed Jaworski
would retain Cox's appointees.


"I stated to him that I
thought that staff was
indispensable to the rapid ...
prosecution of these cases,"
Bork said. "He fully agreed."
He said it will be up to
Jaworski to decide whether to
pursue such investigations as

Vesco: new move


by prosecutors


NEW YORK Federal
prosecutors say they are now
trying to use a new fraud
indictment in efforts to
extradite fugutive financier
Robert L. Vesco.
U.S. Attorney Paul J. Curran
said the latest fraud charge was
considered firmer grounds for
bringing Vesco back to face
justice.
Vesco has successfully
resisted previous United States
extradition attempts and is said
to be dividing his time between
the Bahamas and Costa Rica,
his legal residence.
An earlier indictment had
charged the 37-year-old Vesco,
former Atty. Gen. John N.
Mitchell and ex-commerce
secretary Maurice H. Stans
with conspiring to obstruct
justice.
Mitchell and Stans are
accused of interfering with a
Securities and Exchange
Commission investigation of
Vesco after Vesco made a
secret $200,000 cash
contribution to President
Nixon's re-election campaign.
A second indictment
charged Vesco with wire fraud.
The latest indictment was
unsealed yesterday by U.S.
District Court Lee P. Gagliardi


more than three months atter
it had been handed up by a
grand jury.
Vesco was accused in the
one-count indictment of using
$50,000 in funds of the
International Control Corp. to
buy stock for his personal
benefit while pretending that
the money had been spent for
legitimate corporation
purposes. (AP).


Tapes: how an expert can


NEW YORK-- The release
of the subpoenaed Watergate
tapes to the court almost
certainly will set in motion
efforts to verify the
authenticity of the recordings.
But will a definitive
determination be possible?
In many instances tape
doctoriig probably could be
detected, a number of audio
experts agree. But there is also
the possibility that tests would
be inconclusive.
Experts can edit a voice in
or out, rearrange words to alter
meaning or dub in a voice
faked by a skillful actor.
. .Recorded, the splices no longer
show physically and the ear
cannot detect them.
The real test for the tape
doctor is in the laboratory
where his work must evade
detection by experts using
sophisticated electronic
equipment like a signal
correlators and sound
spectrographs.
Aides to U.S. district judge
John Sirica in Washington have
said he probably would hire
such experts to check the tapes
that former special prosecutor


test for
Archibald Cox subpoenaed
before he was fired. Several
audio experts said only a
handful of persons were skilled
enough to doctor those tapes.
"And many of the few there
are work for the government
itself," one noted.
Hardest to detect would be
the removal of entire
conversations from the tape,
especially if the tape was voice
actuated.
"It would be almost
impossible to detect the
removal of entire conversations
by editing at the points where
the recorder had stopped, said
experts at the 3M Co., a major
manufacturer of tape.
But "elimination or
rearrangement of words of
sentences within a conversation
could probably be detected
through the use ot
sophisticated electronic
equipment," the 3M experts
said.
Splicing interrupts the
magnetic field on the tape and
an oscilloscope can detect


UK SENT FIGHTERS TO

CHILE, SAYS TIMES
LONDON Britain has delivered several Hawker Hunter
fighter planes to Chile since the military junta overthrew Marxist
President Salvador Allende six weeks ago, the London Times
reported today.
They were part of a $6 million contract for seven planes signed
by Allende's Government some time ago, the paper said.
The deliveries, continued since the September coup, were
expected to raise a political storm with anti-junta Labour Party
legislators assailing Prime Minister Edward Heath's Conservative
government.
Members of Labour's Anglo-Chilean group were to ask Foreign
Secretary Sir Alec Douglas-Home to halt deliveries later today,
The Times said.
They will also -aise the question of reports that Chile is trying
to buy Chieftain tanks from Britain. Government sources denied
the junta had made any approaches to London.
Leftist anti-junta groups in Bnitain have already protested
the construction here of three frigates for Chile's navy and
demanded the Government halt delivery of them.
The Times said delivery of the Hunters, including training and
photo-reconnaissance variants, will be completed in a few weeks.
The jets would bring to39 the number of Hunters sold to Chile
in the last few years. (AP).

offer another clue to

a clock ticking or an air

Nixon's dedicated


to his country,


says Rebozo


MIAMI President Nixon's
fight to keep the White House
tapes confidential was a stand
on principle and was not made
in fear of incrimination, the
Miami herald quotes Nixon's
closest friend as saying.
In a copyright story, the
Herald in today's editions
quotes C. G. "Bebe" Rebozo as
saying in a rare personal
interview that Nixon was
motivated "by the same
character and same high
principles.' which he exhibited
in refusing to contest the
Illinois vote in his 1960 loss to
John Kennedy.
"I'm fairly logical ana its's
hard for me to conceive that a
man would sit there talking to
people, being the only one that
knew that it was being
recorded and say something
that might incriminate him,"
Rebozo was quoted as telling
Herald reporters.
"I believe again he was
standing on principle and he
didn't want to not only violate
the separation of power but he
didn't want to condemn future
presidents to the same
situation by giving in."
The Herald said Rebozo
made his statements in an
interview yesterday at his
lawyer's office and that the
interview was the first granted
by Rebozo since Nixon became
President in 1969.
Rebozo, a close friend of
Nixon's since 1950, said: "He's
not the kind of man that you
would necessarily warm up to
immediately."
The newspaper said he
characterized the president as
"a unique person... a very deep
thinker ... dedicated to his
country.
"But he is so dedicated to
his country and his job that he
doesn't have time for the
normal small talk that people
frequently relax indulging in."
The Herald said Rebozo
denied that his Key Biscayne
bank had operated a private
investment fund on Nixon's
behalf and that he also
defended his handling of a
$ 100,000 campaign
contribution from billionaire
Howard Hughes.
He said a 12-week
investigation by the Internal
Revenue Service had cleared
him of any wrongdoing in the
contribution.
The Herald quoted Rebozo
as saying he did not tell Nixon
of the Hughes money until
almost two years after


receiving it in 1969 and did not,
return the money until "well
after" the IRS probe began.
He said if the IRS had not
become interested "the money
would have been used in the
'74 congressional campaign,"
the newspaper said.
The Herald said Rebozo
complained during the
interview that he and his bank
have suffered "just
unbelievable" harassment by
investigators from the Senate
Watergate Committee (AP).

Hippie discos

shut down
SINGAPORE (AP) -
Singapore closed six popular
discotheques today on grounds
they were hangouts for "Jong
haired, hippied-clothed drug
addicts." Five of the
discotheques were in top
hotels.
The Government said it did
not want to dictate individual
tastes in entertainment, but
laid down rules for
discotheques that are allowed
to remain open.
These rules demand that
discotheques have no
psychedelic lighting, no
cubicles, no hippie image and
serve no alcohol.

Published Daily Monday to Saturday


By ETIENNE DUPUCH
BOSTON, October 15th: On the outbreak of the war in the
Middle East I wrote a brief piece in which I said that this tragedy
might be the spark to ignite a third world war.
I pointed out that everything depended on how much
President Nixon had achieved in his efforts to bridge the gap that
separated the U.S. from Russia and China.
The position soon became clear. Both Russia and China came
out on the side of the Arab states. Russia immediately started an
airlift of massive supplies of military equipment to the insurgent
Egyptian and Syrian armies. This forced the U.S. into a position
where she was obliged to send arms to the hard-pressed Israelis.
The position is very delicate. This conflict could lead to
anything: Even if a ceasefire were negotiated at this stage it
would leave the world with the frightening consciousness that
this, at best, could be an uneasy peace ... only a postponement of
the big event.
A world war would be disastrous for the human family ... and
particularly so for the Bahamas with an economy that is way up
in the clouds in an inflated balloon.
In any event the Bahamas is in a bad way, I have told you
before that the completely crazy policies followed by the
government have laid the axe to the root of the nation's
prosperity.
War or no war....hard times are ahead for our people. You
know....the seven lean years as told in the New Testament story.

An old friend of mine from Long Island was in Miami last
week. She came to Coral Gables and had lunch with me.
She told me that there is practically no employment at the
island. The people realize that the future is dark for them,
especially because of the fact that they elected two Opposition
members to the House in the September election.
She told me that the people have gone back to the land....they
are farming more seriously now than ever before. This is a good
thing for the people of Long Island.
I advise people in the other Out Islands to follow this example
beacuse I repeat....war or no war, hard times face the Bahamian
people.
I am sorry for people who live in Nassau and have no land to
cultivate. It could be bad even for people who have money in the
bank. It has been seen that, at time of war, money could lose its
value almost overnight.
My advice to people in the Bahamas....if you have cultivatable
land, hold on to it, treasure it....you nfay need it sooner than you
think to keep soul and body together.


CORAL GABLES, October 25: Since I wrote this article
Russia and America have forced an uneasy truce in the Mid-East
war.
Russia acted quickly to try to stop the fighting when Breznev
realized that Egypt and Syria were losing the initiative gained by
a surprise attack on Israel. He was in Cairo when the tide of battle
started to flow for the Israelis. He rushed back to Moscow and
started his move for a truce.
The heading in today's Miami Herald reports that "Egypt asks
Soviets and the U.S. to police the truce".
"Egyptian President Anwar Sadat," the story reads, "asked
the United States and the Soviet Union on Wednesday to dispatch
troops to secure a shaky ceasefire along the war-torn Suez Canal."
Sadat had been itching for war ever since he succeeded the late
Gamal Nasser as the ruler of Egypt. Now he is shouting
hysterically for peace.
Without the intervention of the U.S. and Russia, Israeli forces
would soon be in Cairo and Damascus.
Somehow I feel that this would have been the only way to
impress on the Arab nations the wisdom of accepting the Israelis
as their neighbours.

I must say that I am disappointed in the behaviour of Britain
and France in this conflict. They both refused to sell arms to
Israel. Indeed, England continued to ship arms to one of the Arab
nations.
It is clear that they would have been satisfied to stand on the
sidelines and see the tiny Israeli state crushed by Arab forces with
the backing of Communist Russia. They both allowed themselves
to be bullied to submission by the tiny Arab oil nations. This ... I
am sorry to have to say ... proves that they are no longer great
powers.
Both Britain and France seem to have forgotten that their
failure to fulfil their obligations to Ethiopia, when that tiny
African nation was invaded by Mussolini's troops, gave Hitler the
courage he needed to barnstorm across Europe. This failure also
laid the axe to European influence on the African continent.
They have also forgotten or they choose not to remember -
that their sacrifice of their ally Czechoslovakia in a weak bid for
peace actually spurred Hitler in an attack on Poland that
launched the second world war.
According to Bible prophesy Armageddon will start in the
Middle East with the Jews God's own chosen people fighting
for survival.
This war may or may not be IT.
Whatever it may be ... it could finally prove to be a step in the
direction.
As I have said many times in this column ... wars are fought to
be won. Every negotiated peace is only a prelude to a bigger war
in the future.
England still has one strength left. The government tries to
keep its own doorstep clean.
Had Edward Kennedy been in England his name would have
been dead and buried after the Chappaquadick tragedy. But he is
still boldly riding high as a possible Presidential hopeful for the
Democratic party.
When the time comes I think the American people ... now fully
aroused by the scandals that have revealed the U.S. as a sick
nation ... will raise their voices in protest.
Two letters in this morning's Miami Herald remind Kennedy
that he had better lay low and talk softly.
In her letter Rose Coggins writes: "Senator Kennedy passed a
smart remark at the Measy convention in Miami Beach, such as
every President should have a Bebe Rebozo to pay off his house
mortgage. Too bad every Senator doesn't have a millionaire father
to leave him a fortune en that he could pay off a Chippaquidick
in,'dent".
I was a great admirer o01 Jack Kennedy. I can't say that I was
enamoured of Robert Kennedy although I feel that his
amolatici was a great tragedy. But I feel that Edward Kennedy


Wbt Mrstmwt


Roker defends ministry


from rage I
The Minister also labelled as
false, the allegation that
maintenance standards at the
hospital had deteriorated.
He said "well-informed
health authorities" had
expressed the opinion that the
Princess Margaret was "among
the best hospitals of its size in
this part of the world."
And alluding to a Tribune
article of September 6, he said
that paper had described the
Princess Margaret as the best in
the Caribbean excepting Puerto
Rico.


"But still it went on to
criticize the general conditions
which it alleged existed at the
hospital, Mr. Roker claimed.
He failed however to quote
this paper's comment in full.
The Tribune said that while
the Princess Margaret was still
the best in the Caribbean "the
trouble is that it has always
been a political football and
never allowed to achieve its full
potential."
DOCTOR DRAIN
Dealing with the "alarm
expressed over the alleged
considerable turnover of


should himself want to shun the limelight after the Chippaquidick
affair.
This young man is riding for a heartbreak. Today the American
people realize that they themselves must carve out the cancer that
is eating out the breast of the American nation.

FOOTNOTE TO HISTORY: Weather is a condition that no one
can figure out. It changes from day to day....and sometimes it
seems to change from hour to hour.
It is more stable in some countries than in others.
The Bahamas is one of the best spots in the world where the
temperature in the islands seldom changes more than five points
in any day. This is a great asset for any resort.
I have told you in earlier articles about the weather on the
Sahara desert where it swings from one extreme to the other in
the course of even 12 hours. It is biting cold at 6 a.m....hot as hell
by 10 a.m. cold again by 6 p.m., and near freezing as the night
advances.
England, of course, is thought of as the country for the
umbrella. It has the reputation for raining in and out of season. In
that country a visitor is advised to take an umbrella along every
time he steps outside his house.
My experience with England has been remarkable. I have
visited that country many times and I can't say that I've
experienced bad weather.
I have heard that the weather has been unseasonable in Nassau
this summer....more rain than usual.
This has certainly been true of Florida for the last several
months. It seems to rain daily here with severe electrical storms at
night. My friends in Coral Gables tell me that this is unusual.
They're sick and tired of the rain which seems to come down
with little advance warning.

You will recall the miscalculation I made when I visited Canada
in September. I felt that the weather should be cooling off by
that time. I wore warm clothing and was almost baked alive by
the time I reached the air conditioned home of my daughter in a
suburb on the fringe of Toronto.
I arrived in Toronto just at a time when Canada was having the
worst heat wave in 1,4 years. It was so hot that when the schools
reopened for the Fall term the morning after my arrival in the
city the children were sent home and told to wait for an
announcement on the radio and TV. It was actually too hot to
keep the children in school.
** ** * * ** ** **
Now this is October and I came to Boston to attend a meeting
of the Inter American Press Association.
The organizers of press meetings all over the world send out
information on the place where a meeting is to be held. This
information usually includes advice on the weather and the kind
of clothes that should be worn.
The advance information on Boston was that it should be cool
and the advice was to bring warm clothing.
Usually my wife and I travel with two suit cases one for each
of us. For this trip we added a third bag a large one to take
care of the warm clothing we felt we might need.

On the drive from the airport to the hotel in the city there was
evidence of the changing season everywhere ... the trees have
taken on the colourful leaves of autumn. But the temperature was
warm.
We have a room on the 28th floor. Whatever the weather at
ground level we expected it to be at least cool at this elevation.
But it was not. It was uncomfortably hot. We turned the
temperature on the airconditioning to high. This did not hlep. We
opened the window to let in fresh air. It was still hot.
***************
I mentioned this fact to a member of the hotel staff the next
morning. He suggested that the fire might have been the cause.
The fire to which he referred was six miles away. We saw it
from the window of our hotel.
Readers of this column in the Bahamas will think it absurd to
suggest that heat from a fire six miles away could be felt in a
room on the 28th storey of a hotel building in a city the size of
Boston.
But this was no ordinary fire. It was the most spectacular....and
at the same time the most destructive....fire I have ever seen or
hope to see in the future. Nothing like it could happen in a small
place like Nassau.
This fire wiped out the whole Southwest corner of Chelsea, a
poor suburb of Boston. The story told in a nutshell....30 city
blocks were involved, 18 were completely destroyed, 12 others
suffered extensive damage....billows of smoke were seen fifty
miles away ... eighty area communities sent in fire fighters within
a 70-mile radius of Chelsea....but despite all this help, the fire
raged throughout the night. And it burned for 76 hours.
First estimates placed damage at a half billion dollars and the
suburb was declared a disaster area by President Nixon. This
entitled it to Federal aid.
This was a poor section and so the first estimate of damage was
exaggerated. The figure has since been scaled down to one
hundred million dollars. Whatever the cost of the damage, the
area looks like a war ravaged town.
The worst feature of this fire was that it was fanned by a high
wind ... so much wind that the heading over the story in the
Boston Herald American the next morning read: "'Hurricane'
Destroys 18 Blocks'".
The Herald .. recalled that this was the second fire disaster to
strike Chelsea during this century.
"It was the second major disaster to strike Chelsea this
century," the newspaper reported. "The other came on Palm
Sunday, April 12 in 1908, leaving 18 dead and 17,000 homeless."
The remarkable feature of this second fire is that no one was
killed but thousands have been made homeless....many more
thousands have been made jobless and penniless. The disaster is
total because in this poor area insurance companies did not take
any risks. No one was protected by insurance.
*^* ^*I I, II lll


Now let us get back to the weather.
The weather has continued to be warm but while writing this
article I saw a forecast on TV. It calls for a cold night with
temperatures dropping to 40 and 30 degrees. It was snowing in
the nearby mountains!
This will be a welcome change. I enjoy cold weather.
************e*
A THOUGHT FOR TODAY
We are swinging round the circle:-ANDREW JACKSON, speech
on the Preidential Recoutmcrton, Augst 1866.


doctors at the hospital, "Mr.
Roker said it was an accepted
fact that doctors were in short
supply in most countries of the
western hemisphere, and that
the Bahamas was still in the
position of having to recruit
the majority of its doctors
overseas.
"To this time we have
insisted that all doctors
recruited should be basically
qualified at recognized shcools
of training and documentary
proof of qualifications be
supplied in every case.
"This practice will be
continued. It is not nearly so
easy however to ascertain
beforehand the attitudes of
doctors or their ability to
adapt to the local scene and it
is not therefore surprising
that some doctors decide to
terminate their services
permaturely.
"For the same reason, there
are sometimes cases in which it
would not be in the best
interest of the public to
prolong the engagement of
certain officers."
'MISLEADING'
The Minister claimed that
"misleading reports" had been
circulated implying attempts
had been made at the
Ministerial level to prevent
unionisation of hospital
doctors.
"This allegation has already
been proved false and the
matter needs no
further clarification."
The Minister did not
mention whether permission
has now been granted the
doctors to unionise.
Commenting on the
statements of Guardian
columnist and FNM
representative Norman
Solomon regarding the death
of 6 1-year-old Rudolph
Albury, Mr. Roker said the
story clearly implied the
hospital had played a part in
bringing about Mr. Albury's
death prematurely.
ALLEGATIONS
Mr. Solomon alleged that
Mr. ALbury had been
discharged by the hospital
and dumped on the porch of a


woman living on Gladstone
Road, instead of being taken to
the airport.
Declared Mr. Roker: 'The
facts of the case are that the
late Mr. Albury was admitted
to the Princess Margaret on
July 16. The problem from
which he suffered had become
chronic and despite the
treatment which he received
from medical consultants of
the hospital he made no
significant improvement.
"It was established that the
case of Mr. Albury was a
terminal one and at his
insistence he was released from
hospital in the care of his
cousin who left in the hospital
amublance to accompany Mr.
Albury to the airport
preparatory to his taking the
flight to Harbour Island on the
same day September 24.
"Mr. Albury's relatives
and his parliamentary
representative (Mr. Solomon)
who expressed an interest in
the patient were kept
thoroughly informed of his
progress throughout his entire
stay in hospital.
"At the time of his
discharge, Mr. Albury was
given a letter concerning his
future management for
delivery to the medical officer
at Harbour Isalnd."

Connally 'not surprised' tapes are missing


LONDON Former U.S.
Treasury Secretary John
Connally today said he was not
surprised that some of the
White House tapes in the
Watergate affair were missing.
"From what I hear, there


must be five years of tapes
stacked somewhere and of
course not all the conversations
that went on were recorded,"
he said.
Connally was talking to
reporters on arrival with his
wife at London airport for a


private visit during which he is
to speak to a meeting of British
businessmen.
He said he saw "no reason
why the President should
resign" because of the Watergate
scandal. -(AP).

It's small, sporty and i
MUSTANG II, the only all-new model in the Ford line for
M ustang 1 1974, made its debut in Nassau last Saturday along with other
1974 Ford cars and trucks at ABC Motors in Centreville.
The public has waited patiently for the model to appear.
-the ne w Detroit has watched its progress with interest. And the reason for
this interest in something which happens every year at this time:
F1. d The simple fact that Mustang II doesn't happen every year. It is
Ford the most-changed car in the auto industry this year.
Ford see the car as the forerunner of a new class. It is small,
Ide sporty and luxurious. It is 19 inches shorter than the 1973
m Otid Mustang and seven inches shorter than the original Mustang which
was introduced in April 1964.

It was designed as a small car
without sacrificing the front
seat room of the previous
Mustangs. It is not noisy, tinny
or cheap. Mustang 11 was
designed for motorists eager
for a luxury-oriented car but
one which was also economical
and smaller than a compact.
"With the growth of the
small car market, Mustang II
seems to be coming at the right
time," said Bernard Miller,
president of ABC Motors Ltd.,
Ford dealers in the Bahamas.
"It brings to the booming
small car market the luxurious
touches and smooth ride of
much larger, more expensive
cars.
"Mustang 11 is a car for the
especially timely in these days


By The Associated Press
TODAY is THURSDAY,
November 1st. There are 60 days
left in the year.
Highlights in history on this
date:
1971 U.S. troop strength in
Vietnam drops below 200,000 for
first time in nearly six years.
1970 142 young persons
perish in dance hall fire in Saint
Laurent-du-Point, France.
1963 Army coup in South


Seventies. Its gas milage is
of possible gas shortages, and
the small size and handling
make it especially
manoeuverable on our narrow
city roads."
Standards for Mustang 11 is
Ford's new 2.3-liter,
four-cylinder, overhead cam
engine. Optional is the 2.8, V-6
engine built by Ford of
Germany.
Mustang II will be the only
American car to offer V-6
performance in a small car.
Performance with these smaller
engines is more than adequate
for city and highway driving
while lacking the jarring
qualities of former Mustangs
powered by the bigger V-8
engines.
The V-6 is extremely quiet
for a small car because of the
frame design and a special
sound-deadening substance in
the front. A unique ,ub-frame
also gives this "big car" ride
helping to isolate noi'.
vibration and harshness from
the passenger compartment.
Included in the list of
standard equipment on the
Mustang II are front bucket

is assassinated.
1961 85 persons killed in

Theie are new options and
refinements on Ford's light
trucks for 1974 as well as an
expanded line of heavy truck
engines.
The Ford pick-up, new in
1973, has more features
designed to make the vehicle
more versatile. These include
the 460-4V V-8 engine which is
optional now for the first time
on all pick-up models. The

F-250 and F-350 are also

There IS a time


to disobey parents

By Abigail Van Buren
S197M V Ccam Tribme-N. Y. New Smy., I1t.
DEAR ABBY: I'm going to have to disagree with you
on this one. Obedience to one's parents is not the highest
and greatest good, not even for a 13-year-old.
Anyone, even a child, is morally obligated to disobey
authority when authority demands something that violates
the conscience. This principle was brought home to me by
my eldest daughter when she was seven, upon her hearing
the story of Abraham and Isaac for the first time. "It's
wrong to kill," declared my precocious moralist, "and you
should never do what you know is wrong, even if God tells
you to." By the same principle, it is similarly wrong to
refrain from doing good because one has been forbidden to
do it.
Susan's friend, if she is sufficiently courageous, should
tell her mother that she regrets the necessity of being
disobedient, but that she cannot conscientiously be obedient
in this instance. She should then offer to accept whatever
reasonable punishment the mother may care to impose,
and then endure the punishment with as much courtesy and
stoicism as she can muster.
The kind of obedience you advocate for Susan's friend
is qualitatively the same as that of the Nazis who were
"only obeying orders" when they slaughtered Jews. The
matter involved is not so serious as murder, that's all.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
DEAR FOOD: Your letter is more than "food for
thought"-it's an intellectual banquet.

DEAR ABBY: My husband has the women in his office
running errands all over town in his 1973 limousine. When I
tell him it looks bad, he says their own cars are either
falling apart or their gas tanks are empty.
I suggested that he buy a company station wagon and
put the name of his company on the door, and have the
girls run his errands in that. He says: "I'm not letting the
small town gossips run my business just because they have
poisoned your mind about how it looks." I told him I
poisoned my own mind on the subject. Meanwhile, I drive a
small economy car to run my errands.
What do you think about this? THE POORER HALF
DEAR POORER: I can understand your annoyance at
having your husband's women employees driving his '73
limousine all over town on errands, but there's a better
reason for suggesting he get a company car. It would be a
legitimate company expense--and save gasoline!

DEAR ABBY: A mother wrote saying she was "AT
WITS END" because her 30-year-old widowed daughter let
her housekeeping go while she did "useless" things like
writing poetry, planting flowers, taking ballet lessons. And
she dragged her six-year-old son to museums and art exhib-
its. ["What can a six-year-old learn from an art exhibit?"
she asks.]
I endorse your reply in which you defended the daugh-
ter, and would like to add that my parents "dragged" me
to concerts, museums, and art exhibits when I was a tod-
dler.
I was awakened one night to "come see the Northern
Lights," and told of the Aurora Borealis. I saw Sousa in
one of his last concerts, and heard Mark Twain in his last
appearance in his native state. I was reading at the age of
four, and soon afterwards my father opened his entire
library to me, showing me how to handle books carefully-
they were precious.
Abby, I bless my parents for showing me the beauty of
the world. I continue to find life interesting and exciting. I
am 79.
Three cheers for daughter! MRS. M. D. IN MISSOURI


If women's place is in the home,



then let's not forget place of father

By DAPHNE WALLACE WHITFIELD
IN THIS COLUr.IN LAST WEEK a photograph of an old man was used to illustrate pictorially
the theme on which I was writing.


The Tribune received a
'phone call that the old man
had recently died and his
family were offended by the
use of his photograph.
The editorial department
and I personally regret any
anguish that this photograph
might have caused his family.
However, this photograph
was selected not as a particular
individual no name was
contained in the caption
beneath. It was selected for its
artistic merit. It was intended
to represent Bahamian old age
a face dull of character and
the wisdom of years yet
whose world was, in terms of
change, a thousand years
removed from the world today
the world in which the
grandchildren of Bahamian
people of this generation are
growing up.

I SHOULD have thought the
purpose of writing or any other
medium of communication was
to inform, to educate or to
entertain.
There is a trend in The
(;iuarian editorials that appear
to fit into none of these
categories.
In Tuesday morning's
editorial all the ills of society
are ascribed to mothers
working and not staying home
to bring up their children. It is
concluded lamely that this
(women working) isn't going to
change, so bless them anyhow.
So, what's the point?
In this column last week I
emphasised what is obvious
that the world of today is light
year's away from the world of
yesterday And 1 applied this
to some of the social problems
in our community to-day.
Of course women working
isn't going to change.
In fact women working is no
new phenomenon. When have
black Bahamian women in
particular ever been free of
work. especially in cases where
they were the sole providers'?
In simpler. rural times
throughout the world women
and men both worked at home
and the children too. When
the work was manual naturally
there was a subdivision of
labour with the men doing the
heavier work and the women
and children the lighter work.
However, in the absence of the
men, the women and children


did all the heavier work as well.
In to-day's world machines
have replaced brute strength .-
and this latter quality is
practically irrelevant now.
The relatively new
phenomenon of fathers leaving
their homes to work outside
could just as justifiably be
ascribed as the sole reason for
the breakdown of morals and
values in modem society.
FATHERS NEEDED
Children need fathers just as
much as they need mothers. I
do not subscribe to the theory
that in the woman and the
woman alone lies the whole
human heritage of morals and
values. Men are human and
have souls too and if the hand
that rocks the cradle is the
hand that rules the world the
world would be a better place
if the hand was also a
masculine hand.
Dr. James Thorpe, former
chief medical officer and
psychiatrist, at the Federal
Training School outside
Washington to whom
youngsters in trouble with the
law are sent by the court for
diagnosis and often treatment,
along with established
psychiatric opinion, said that
"the lack of a strong father
image is central to
delinquency" he further
qualified this statement by
saying that by strong he didn't
mean autocratic.
The importance of a good
father figure is recognized
throughout the world as a
bulwark against juvenile
deliquency (statistics show that
most juvenile delinquents are
boys).
In Germany, the well-known
juvenile court judge Wolf
Middendorff. said "A boy
learns to be a man by copying
his father. If there's nothing
worth copying, the boy soon
senses it and turns to other
heroes."
Thus my advocacy last week
of a Big Brother or substitute
Father system for those
Bahamian boys who lack one
of their own.
However, girls need fathers
just as much. The psychiatrists
also tell us that girls marry men
like their fathers. Thus is
illegitimacy perpetuated. The
girl with an absentee father in
most cases will also produce
children with an absentee
father. Although, the family as
a unit is weekend in to-day's
world no one has found a
successful replacement for it.
For it is in the family that the
children learn who and how to
love. The boys learn how to
become men from their
fathers, and who to love from
their mothers, and the girls
learn how to become women
from their mothers and who to
love from their fathers. And
within the family unit they
learn how to express this love.

BUT BACK to The Guardian
editorial. Mothers staying
home will not restore the
family unit to its strength in
the past.
The work that brings home
the bacon is done outside the
home. The bacon is also
basically prepared for
consumption outside the
home. The children's main life
is conducted outside the home
school and extracurricular
activities.
The home is no longer the
place where work for the
economic survival of the family
members is accomplished nor is
the home anymore the centre
for the entertainment, cultural
pursuits and sole
companionship of its members.
And, unless we turn back the
clock a hundred years we can't
make it so.
Keeping women at home in
a vacuum won't turn back the
clock either.
Their husbands will still have
to go out to work in fact
without the wife's income
they'll probably have to have


two jobs. The children will still
go to school, scouts, sports and
myriad other activities with
their peers outside the home.
This is not to conclude that
the home is irrelevant to
today's world or that it is
desirable that it should merely
be a place to sleep, eat and

Coakley, Joe Karates Williams,
Valderine Turnquest
(Headmistress of T. A.
Thompson primary school) and
Arlene Nash.
The committee are going to
provide 100 needy children
(more if the response warrants
it) with toys. However, their
formula is a variation on the
usual one of going to Miami
and spending a pile of money
on a load of cheap junk.
On Monday November 5
until December 14 Santa's
Helpers are opening a depot at
the T. A. Thompson Primary
School from 4 p.m. 'til 8 p.m.
in order to receive used and
discarded toys.
They will fix and refurbish
these toys at a warehouse to
put them in good working
order and spanking new
condition to be given out at a
children's party they are to
hold on Friday, December 21.
Who will be on the guest
list? This young group have
gone about this in a
professional way. They have
requested the Ministry of


Education, the Ministry of
Welfare and the Red Cross to
provide them with the names
of children most in need and
deserving of a Christmas
treat.
So parents who are
preparing to ouy new toys for.
their children please go
through your children's old
stock of toys and take them to
the T. A. Thompson primary
school. They will bring
happiness to no one left
unused in your cupboards.
Santa's Helpers will also come
and pick up your used toys if
you so desire. Just call 22635
if you have a transportation
problem.
The committee is not only
appealing to the private sector
for donations of second hand
toys. They are also appealing
to stores to donate toys from
old stock. Donations will also
be appreciated as they have to
finance the party.
Consequently they have
opened a fund at Barclays
Bank (Oakes Field branch)
although deposits to this fund
can be made at any Barclays
Bank branch.
Santa's Helpers are being
assisted by the Government
High School Key Club on
which committee member Tino
Christophilis is staff advisor.

Black days for London


soccer as clubs struggle


1 ONI)ON These are black
days for London's soccer
teams.
There are fixe of them in the
English First Division, and they
are strung out in the bottom
half of the standings.
Arsenal. proud winners of
the League and ('Cutip double
tw'o seasons ago. are in 14th
place.
Tottenham liotspur, who
captured the converted double
in 1961,are 15th.
C(helsea, English Cup
winners in 1970, are 17th.
West Hlanm, winners of the
European Cup of Cup Winners
in 1965 and still captained by
Bobby Moore, are in
bottom-butt-one place. And
apparently face a struggle for
First Division survival.
Newly-promoted Queen's
Park Rangers are the most
successful Londin club at the
moment. They are in tenth
place with 14 points from 13
games.
Cockney faces are even
longer south of the River
Tha times.
Crystal Palace, after three


seasons in the First Division,
are pathetically placed at the
foot of the Second Division
with only four points from 14
matches.
Arsenal recently have been
without England World Cup
star Alan Ball, who at his best
is the inspiration of the team.
West Ham's two main
strikers, "Pop" Robson and
Ted MacDougall, have been out
of action.
But even with these excuses,
London soccer fans have a lot
to worry about Last season
Arsenal were runners-up, West
Ham finished sixth and
Tottenham eigth.
Tottenham has suffered the
sharpest decline of all. The
Spurs haven't won the league
title since their "double" year,
1961, but they have always
beer in the top half of the
standings and usually been
among the leaders.
Bill Nicholson, the shrewd
manager who led Tottenham to
success 12 years ago, is still in
charge. Stalwards like Mike
England, Martin Peters,
Martin Chivers and Alan


Gilzean are still in the team.
But somehow Spurs are just
not clicking.
London's struggling teams
face tough games again this
Saturday.
West Ham, who have won
only once all the season, visit
Leeds the runaway league
leaders.
Tottenham are away to
Everton, Leeds' closet rivals in
the title chase.
Arsenal are at home to
Liverpool, always a difficult
team to beat. Chelsea visit
Manchester United, who have
George Best back in action.
Queen's Park Rangers are away
to Derby, who probably have
the strongest defence in the
English league.
A few wins in that lot and
there could be smiling faces
again in the London pubs next
Saturday night. But it will be a
hard day.
Leeds, still undefeated, have
23 points from 13 games.
Everton, Burnley and Derby all
have 18 points, with Everton
holding second place on goal
average. (AP).

Third baseman (Corrine

ball to first baseman Pat

control it and Symnonette
scored. Sabala in the confusion
took third.
Florence Rolle then drew a
walk before the Blazers' first
baseman's hit to third

another run scored.
A fourth error this time
on left fielder Marla Straclian
who dropped Barbara Knowles'
pop fly saw the Blazers scoring
their final run of the inning.
