as


parliamentary


secretary to the PM


By NICKI KELLY
ROLLEVILLE REPRESENTATIVE GEORGE A. SMITH has resigned as Prime
Minister Lynden Pindling's parliamentary secretary six months after lhe put together
the highly successful Independence celebrations.


6 OAKES FIELD

SHOPS ROBBED

IN WAVE OF

BREAK-INS
SIX SHOPS in the Oakes
Field Shopping Centre had
their front doors and plate
glass display windows
destroyed last night in a new
wave of break-ins.
Some shops in the area have
been hit three times in the past
two months by robbers who
have either smashed the glass
fronted stores or entered
through the ceilings.
"All the shops were
ran sacked.k..they were
obviously looking for money,"
said one store-keeper. "We
keep no money on the
premises and our cash till is
always left open," said a
spokesman for Target Drug
Store. "They took a few
packets of cigarettes and
maybe some earings, because
the display case has been
tampered with," she said.
At Dad and Lad, which has
been broken into for the third
time in two months, a rock was
found inside the store which
had been used to smash down
the door.
A full inventory will be
made by store-owner George
Ageeb tomorrow to find out
what goods are missing. Over
two thousand dollars worth of
goods mainly suits, shirts,
ties, belts and shoes were
stolen in the last raid.
Other stores hit in the
shopping complex on
Thompson Boulevard last night
were the DougOut, Day's Dress
Shop Cellar's Wineshop and
Steven's Fabrics.
The Oakes Field Servicentre
just behind the Shopping
Centre was broken into last
week and over $500 worth of
tyres and batteries stolen. They
have been hit in two robberies
in the past three months. "If
they keep on like this we'll just
have to close down," a
spokesman for the Servicentre
told The Tribune.
Also last night Unique
Interiors in Palmdale was
broken and entered and a
quantity of goods taken.
Police are investigating all
the break-ins.
A spokesman told The
Tribune today that the police
had told her they had their
hands full at present searching
for the escaped prisoners -
two of the four have been
recaptured and "they don't
have enough men."
Questioned on this today,
police denied they were not up
to standard on their patrols.
Pblice believe a gang is at work
using one or more cars in their
rnids.

POST CORD

ARRIVED A

DAY TOO LATE
Thirty-year-old New Yorker
Abbie Breit would not have
been reported missing on a trip
to the Bahamas if a postcard
she sent home had arrived
there a day earlier than it did.
Miss Breit, who has been
staying on Paradise Island, told
The Tribune this morning that
she mailed a postcard to her
aunt on October 29.
The postcard. which would
have let her family know she
was all right, arrived in New
York late on Thursday last
week the same day a private
investigator left New York to
search for her in Nassau.
The investigator, Richard
von Thaden, reported Miss
Breit missing to both the police
and to The Tribune.
As far as Mr. von Thaden
was aware at the time, Miss
Breit had not been heard of or
seen by family or friends since
a friend left her in the lobby of
the Sheraton-British Colonial
Hotel on Oct. 15.
Since then, Miss Breit said,
she has made an unsuccessful
attempt to sail with friends to
George Town, Exuma bad
weather prevented completion
of the journey and has been
spending time at the Yoga
camp on Paradise Island.
She is scheduled to leave
Nassau tomorrow.

First Jumbo due
here Sunday
THE FIRST passenger-
carrying jumbo jet to arrive at
Nassau International Airport, is
scheduled to touch down at
2:15 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 11 on
a charter flight from New
York.
Aboard the Pan American
World Airways aircraft will be
members and wives of the New
Jersey State Bar Association
which will hold its week-long
convention at the Paradise
Island Hotel and Villas. The
convention opens on Sunday

In addition to the three
brothers and seven sisters
mentioned yesterday, Mrs.

Sisters Conney, Casey and

A statement from the Prime
Minister's office today gave
"personal reasons" for Mr.
Smith's resignation.
"Mr. Srriith, M.P'.
Rolleville, Ihas, for personal
reasons, requested the rinie
Minister to release him as his
Parliaminentary Secretary so as
to allow 1In i to return to
private business.
"The Prime Minister has
'reluctantly and regrelt it i"
agreed to Mr Snmith's ,(ioqrt,'"
the statement said.
In his letter to the Prime
Minister on October 31 Mr.
Smith said that "si1c' "-!,%
appointmer-nt last year
March..we have been engaged
in the twc> most dramat ic
events in our history.
RELUCTANT
"Those events were the
campaign fo.)r Independence
and the 197 2 general elcctin
campaign. 1 am happy that
both were very successful. In
the meantiin e, however, many
personal considerations and
responsib ilities h1ave
suffered...t is therefore, with a
sense of reluctance that I
would ask that you release me
from the ful 1 time position as
your parliar-entary secretary.
Continued Mr. Smith: "I
shall, of coLa rse, be ready and
willing in the future to
consider acceptance of
assignments which you might
envision for me which would
enable me to make further
contributions to the
development of our nation."
In his reply the Prime
Minister told Mr. Smith that
"there are inot many men in
public life a anywhere, who, on
realising that their private and
personal commitments are
over heln ing, voluntarily
decide to return to their
private career rs.
He added that "should you
take to your new undertakings
in the priva tc sector with the
same zeal aitid proficiency that
characterisedc the handling of
your responsibilities as my
Parliamentary y Secretary, I have
no doubt t that those
undertakings will be crowned
with success- "
ST RAINED
Mr. Simit l's resign ition as
Mr. Pindlirng's parliamentary
secretary fo liows reports that
relations bet xveen the two men
have beconiti strained in recent
months.
Mr. Smith was assigned the
job by the Prime Minister of
coordinating all arrangements
for the Independence
celebrations-
As chairnian the 33-year-old
representative succeeded in
cutting acro ss political barriers
to achieve a presentation that
drew favor, durable comment
from all qua rters.
It was anticipated that Mr.
Smith's hard work would be
recognized with a Cabinet post.
This has anot been the case
however, NT or did the Prime
Minister malce any reference to
him where discussing the
Independence celebrations at
last month's Progressive Liberal
Party conve ntion.
Since lIsdependence Mr.
Smith has been in limbo. Now
that he has resigned as
parliamentary secretary he will
in all likelihood resume his
association with Diversified
Services, the public relations
firm he previously headed.
Mr. Smith could not be
reached tluis afternoon for
comment or his future plans.


VESCO ARRESTED AS


POLICE SWOOP


ON BANK
FUGITIVE financier
Robert L. Vesco, wanted by
the United States government
on fraud charges for the past
two years, was arrested in
Nassau this afternoon by
Bahamian police.
The arrest was carried out
at 1:25 p.m. by Assistant
Commissioner John Crawley,
acting on a Federal U.S.
warrant sworn before a
Bahamas magistrate.
Vesco was arrested in the
offices of the Bahamas
Commonwealth Bank and
taken before magistrate
Emmanuel Osadebay this
afternoon where he was freed
on $75,000 cash bond, but
has had to surrender his travel
documents and is not allowed
to leave the Bahamas.
He is to appear before
magistrate Osadebay next
Tuesday on the extradition


proceedings.
Vesco's Bahamas arrest was
based on a July 20 fraud
indictment, rather than upon
the case involving Mitchell
and Stans.
Opened only last
Wednesday, the fraud
indictment accused h.m of
falsifying records of a firm he
headed to cover up the
embezzlement of $50,000 of
its funds, which were sent to
a Swiss Bank in 1972.
At the heart of the
conspiracy case involving
Mitchell and Stans is Vesco's
secret $200,000 contribution
to President Nixon


their earlx twenties are charged
with tlh Perpall Tract shooting
of Major last September 5.
luinics, accused of abetment
o murder, is represented by
attorney David C. Bethell.
burros s. led in evidence by
attorney Lawrence P. J.
IrIn Ilhard said Thompson
piot ld him into revealing the
sublet of a conversation he
had with Major on September
4.
AT DISCOTHEQUE
lie said that on September
4, he and Major were at a
Quackoo Street discotheque
drinking and talking when
Thompson walked in.
Mome nts before
Thompson's opearance, Major
had told him of a plan to get
some 'quick' money through
blackmail. he testified.
lc said he left the club
a round 3.30 a.m. on
September 5 and went to his
girlfriend's. On September 5.
after a visit to his sister's home
in Coconut Grove, he went to
tihc Queen Street office of
attorncr Cecil Wallace
Whittield.
"A group of people were
there ... Anthony
"Stick-a-Tone" Conyers, Ray
Scasella. "Moon", Campbell,
"'Saboo", Joseph Ferguson,
"' ats", Keith and some more
... "'Chalkie" and "Claw" and
another one named "Rat."
AT OFFICE
"Inside, I met Arthur
Foulkes, Dr. McMillan, a Mr.
Albury, Barry Thompson and
Mr. Whitfield's two sons and
another big fellow."
lie went to get a cup ot
coffee and Thompson came
over to him, he said.
Thompson asked if he wasn't
told about the meeting that
was held the previous night.
"Hle said I see you and Ray
Barry Major talking last night.
What were you talking about.
lHe said y'all had to be talking
::bout something because when
I saw Major, he just stopped
talking.
MONEY CHARGE
"I told Thompson we were
just talking about some
'chicks'. But he said h
believed we were talking about
him. I said we were not. He
asked me if I remembered what
happened to me when I lied to
him the last time," Burrows
said.


Whitfield to have some money
dropped off and if it is not
dropped off the way he wants
it, he'd go to the police and he
would tell them he know who
has been doing some burning
downs."
Burrows said Thompson told
one of Mr. Whitfield's sons to
call "Ray Scavella and
Stick-a-Tone. After they came
he asked them if Polka was
outside He asked Scavella if he
knew where Major lived ...
Stick-a-Tone said 'yes'," he
knew.
Thompson ordered them to
get "Polka and find Barry
Major. Thompson said we can't
allow Major to go to the police
or be saying things like that."
Burrows testified.
HUSHED COURT
In his testimony before the
hushed Supreme Court.
Burrows said that sometime
after, Polka Humes, Conyers
and Scavella returned without
finding Major at home. He said
they told Thompson this and
left again.
About 15-minutes after the
three left, he went downstairs
and met Major, lie said.
"I told him that what you
told me last night, I told Barry
Thompson about it. Major said
I shouldn't have done that. He
said 'you know that dude
doesn't like me.' He was
referring to Thompson. I said I
didn't know that. We were
there talking for a while ...
before Ray Scavella drove up."
Scavella told Major he
wanted to speak with him and
Major wanted to know what
was the subject to be discussed.
"I told Major maybe they
were going to talk to him
about the phone call he was
going to make to Mr.
Whitfield," Burrows said.
DRUNK?
"He said they couldn't be
taking him serious about what
he said because he was drunk
when he said it. He went in the
car along with them," Burrows
testified.
An adjournment for lunch
broke the testimony of the
accused when attorney
Trenchard said he intended to
continue unimpeded with the
second part of the evidence.
It was Burrows' second day
in the witness box after the
defence opened their case
yesterday afternoon when the


IT'S NOW OFFICIAL:



Sinclair Outten gets



Bahamas citizenship;



can run in by-election

By NICKI KELLY

MR. SINCLAIR OUTTEN, who was forced to give up
his St. Barnabas seat in the House of Assembly because
of citizenship difficulties, has now become a naturalized


citizen of the Bahamas.
Mr. Outten confirmed the
fact today and said he obtained
his citizenship "this month".
This now opens the way for
him to re-contest St. Barnabas
following his communication
on October 30 to House
Speaker Arlington Butler that
he had vacated the seat.
Mr. Outten's problems began
a bout the time of
Independence when he learned
from his father that he was
born at Turks Island and not
the Bahamas as he had


previously thought.
This automatically
disqualified him from offering
as an election candidate
although a year earlier he had
been elected as the PLP
representative for St. Barnabas.
Mr. Outten made a public
statement of his position on
August 31 and at the same
time sought the advice of the
Speaker.
UNPRECEDENTED
The unprecedented situation
for which no provision is
made in the Representation of
the People Act created a
legal dilemma for government.
Neither the House Rules nor
the I'lections Act provides for
the disqualification of a
representative after the period
for petitioning the Election
Court has ended.
By "vacating" his seat, Mr.
Outten resolved the issue,
making it possible for
Governor-General Sir Milo
Butler to issue a writ of
election and this is still
awaited.
The former representative
was among the first to make
application for Bahamian
citizenship.
His re-nomination as the
PLP c:nd; .I,e in :he St.
Barnabas by-election may not
however be so cut and dried.
HEASTIE AGAIN?
The Tribune understands
that Mr. Wenfred Heastie, who
ran for the district as an
Independent PLP in 1968, is
interested in winning the PLP
nomination in the by-election.
Mr. Heastie, with the
background support ot a
number of PLP members,
decided to contest St. Barnabas
in 1968 when both the UBPl
and PLP decided not to
challenge Labour incumbent
Randol Fawkes,
Should Mr. Ileastie pursue
the nomination, it could lead
to a bitter fight within PLEP
ranks, as Prime Minister
Lynden Pindling is known to
favour Mr. Outten.


Scavella.
And the trial hit a snag early
this morning with the
prosecution objecting to an
application made by Mr.
Trenchard to produce the first
statement which Burrows made
to police.
lie said that he was made to
feel that he would be allowed
to see the statement but so far
it had not been given him. He
called on the judge to inspect
the statement first and if he
did not find it objectionable,
to allow it to be produced. The
judge is to make a ruling on the
application further in the trial.

UNION SEEK

LEGAL ADVICE

ON SHOT

HOTEL WORKER
TIlE HOTEL and catering
workers' union was today
seeking legal advice on the
alternatives available to hotel,
worker Alvin Strachan who last
week had a leg amputated after
being shot by a policeman.
The union is also preparing
to set up a fund to give Mr.
Strachan financial assistance.
Details of the two moves were
not immediately available.
Mr. Strachan was shot in
the right leg late last Sunday
night, and the leg was
amputated above the knee on
Thursday night. Dr. Granville
Bain, who performed the
amputation, today declined to
disclose any information on
the location of the bullet
wound in the leg or on his
reasons for removing the limb.
According to reports, Mr.
Strachan, a Chippingham
resident, was walking along
Boyd Road shortly before
midnight last Sunday when a
car stopped next to him and
one o t A thr nIwi' inside
asked him what he had in his
pockets. Mr. Strachan showed
the men a comb and said it was
all he had with him.
When one of the men started
to get out of the car
Mr. Strachan, thinking he was
about to be robbed, turned and
ran. one of the men shouted at
him to stop, then shot him in
the lrg.
It was alicre 'ly only then
that I i..n identified
these; -. as police officers.
Police have confirmed that
a man was shot by a policeman
on "special duty," but have
declined to give details.
Mr. Strachan was on his
way home after working the
late shift at the Halcyon
Balmoral Beach Hotel when he
was accosted by the policemen.


'We'll have our Xmas lights' says



BEC chairman, despite oil crisis

WHILE countries around the world brace for a tightening oil shortage due to the oil embargo


the Bahamas is still not feeling any ill effects.


In fact, Bahamas Electricity
Corporation chairman Preston
Albury told The Tribune today
that he was "pretty certain
we'll be having our Christmas
lights."
The major oil companies
operating here are still "very
much in the dark" with regard
to their supplies, according to
one oil company spokesman,
and have not received any
instructions from their head
offices.
Shell general manager David
Pownall told The Tribune
yesterday that oil supplies to
the Bahamas were certainly
"not critical" but consumers
would inevitably have to pay a
"significantly higher" price.
The Tribune understands
that the major oil distributors
here have put forward
proposals for a price increase
which is being reviewed by
Government in the light of
recent world-wide oil
developments.
NO COMMENT
Contacted today a
spokesman for Government
would only say: "Government
does not propose to make any
statement on the oil situation
for the time being."
Cabinet was in session today
and it was expected that high
on the list of priorities would
be an up-to-date review of the
oil situation as it affects the


Bahamas.
With t he world-wide
situation for major oil users
deter iorating rapidly,
developments on the world
scene have been happening
fast.
Among the more significant
results today:
The Danish government
joined Belgium and French
authorities in lowering speed
limits on highways, banned
high- octane gasoline and told
their citizens to voluntarily do
without Christmas lights.
Belgians have been banned
from Sunday motoring and
have been asked to reduce
home heating.
West Germany was said to
be contemplating similar
measures.
Norway has launched a
cmapaign to encourage
customers voluntarily to cut
their consumption of fuel.
U.S. TO RATION?
In the United States the
Arab oil cutback may
eventually force Government
to ration fuels, order businesses
to close early and curtail
pleasure driving, the Associated
Press reported.
Only one effect has been felt
so far in the Bahamas. One
consumer who tried to buy
two 55 gallon drums of oIl
from a gas station was not
permitted to do so.


CANADA WARNS

U.S. ABOUT OIL
OTTAWA (AP) Canada
would halt exports of refined
oil products to the United
States if Arab countries make
such action a condition to
selling crude oil to Canada,
energy minister Donald
Macdonald said Monday.
However, he added that
Canada would not allow Arab
pressure to halt Canadian
shipments of crude to the
United States.
Canada is the leading U.S.
source of foreign oil. It is
sending about 30 million
barrels of crude to the United
States this month and a similar
amount of refined products.
Canada imports about 10
million barrels of crude each
month fromArab States.

Faced with an Arab
ultimatum, Macdonald said in

Beatrix of the Netherlands, and
Crown Prince Harald of
Norway.
The wedding list of 1,500
announced by Buckingham
Palace included the expected
number of peers, politicians,
lord mayors, governors-generals
and British Commonwealth
high commissioners. Foreign
ambassadors to London have
not been invited.
On the list are tradesmen
concerned with arrangements
for the weeding and staff from
the two families homes.
Richard Meade, whose name
was romantically linked with the
Princess right up to the time of
the engagement, said he would
be at the weeding. Like
Phillips, Meade is an equestrian
Olympic gold medallist.

And the bells are already
ringing for the marriage but
the sound is coming from
Britain's cash registers.
The Commemorative
Collectors' Society calculates
that the marriage is worth
more than $15,500,000 to the
souvenir industry.
According to society
secretary Steven Jackson, the
romance's commercial spinoff
makes the event "the most
extensively exploited royal
wedding since that of the Duke
of York and Princess Mary of
Teck in 1893."
That royal couple became

NEW YORK It's election
day today. And politicians are
closely watching this off-year
election for a clue to the
impact of Watergate.
The elections represent the
first national sampling of voter
sentiment since the eruption of
White House scandals and is
being viewed as a possible
preview of 1974.
Since the 1972 voting, in
which President Nixon buried
Democrat George McGovern
but failed to ruffle Democratic
control of Congress and
statehouses across the country,
the nation has witnessed some
of the most serious political
scandal of its history.
Important members of
Nixon's administrative and
campaign organization. Some
are under indictment. Others
have pleaded guilty to criminal
charges. High officials have
admitted complicity in the
Watergate scandals.
Responsible voices are calling
for the president's resignation
or impeachment.


The spotlight turns first to
New Jersey where Democrat
Brendan T. Byrne is expected
to win a governorship captured
by the Republicans in 1969.
Byrne, a 49-year-old former
judge, faces conservative
Republican Charles W.
Sandman Jr., 52. Sandman
beat Gov. William Cahill in a
June primary that left the
party deeply split. A
Democratic victory would
appear probable in such
circumstances even without
Watergate.
In Virginia, GOP control of
the governor's mansion is
considered in possible
jeopardy. But the Democrats
don't even have a nominee on
the ballot. The Republican
nominee is former Democratic
Gov. Mills E. Goodwin Jr., 58.
His opponent is Lt. Gov. Henry
E. Howell Jr., 53, a Democrat
running as an independent.
In New York City Democrat
Abraham D. Beame, 67, is
expected to win promotion

RESCUED IRA


CHIEFS 'SAFE


FROM HUNT'

BELFAST The Irish Republican Army's provisional wing
said today that the three IRA chieftains rescued by helicopter
from Dublin's Mountjoy prison are safe from tlh massive
manhunt under way in the Irish Republic.


An IRA statement gave no
clue to the whereabouts of
Seamus Twomey, Kevin Mallon
and Joe O'Hagen.
But it was believed that they
would return to Northern
Ireland and take a leading part
once more in the campaign of
violence to end British rule.
Twomey, the former
commander of the embattled
Belfast division of the
Guerillas, and the other two
IRA men were serving
sentences for being members of
an illegal organization.
They were rumoured to have
been sprung to head up a new
guerrilla campaign in Northern
Ireland.
Meanwhile, provisional units
in South Armagh, near the
border with the Irish Republic,
threatened surprise bomb
attacks on the homes of
members of the mostly
protestant militia, the Ulster
Defence Regiment, and of the
Royal Ulster constabulary.
The guerillas charged that
these forces had not dealt
severely enough with
Protestant assassins, were
condoning "'military
harassment" and were helping
to maintain "British
occupation."
Ulster's Catholic and
Protestant political leaders
were reported nearer to
forming an all-party executive
committee to take over the
administration of Northern
Ireland from the British
government.
Political sources said the
main stumbling block to
progress is the role of the
proposed council of Ireland, to
be made up of representatives
of the Republic and of
Northern Ireland.
The unionists, a Protestant
party led by former provincial
Prime Minister Brian Faulkner,
want the body to be an
advisory group only; the
Catholic Social Democratic and
Labour Party led by Gerry Fitt
wants the council to have
definite powers of decision.

Nixon's


'tragedy'

WASHINGTON Vice
President-designate Gerald
Ford said it was tragic "that
the stupid illegal acts of a
handful of people" had
discredited the Nixon
administration.
Ford told a Senate
Committee examining his
qualifications to become vice
president that he thought
President Nixon could recover
from Watergate and finish his
second term with a good
record.
"I think he can," Ford said.
"But it's going to take a lot of
help from a lot of people."
Members of the Senate
Rules Committee questioned
Ford closely about this
relationship with a former,
Washington lobbyist and his
views of presidential
leadership.
"We're talking to you as a
potential president," said Sen.
Caliborne Pell.
Ford praised Nixon for "a
superb job" in foreign

affairs, but conceded that the
Watergate affair had seriously
damaged the president
domestically.
Ford said he felt Nixon had
nothing to do with the
planning and execution of the
break-in of Democratic
headquarters that sparked the
Watergate investigation, but
that the president had an
immediate need to clear up all
questions relating to it. (AP)

Ihe irtliur


By ETIENNE DUPUCH
WHEN my daughter phoned me from Nassau last week she was
amazed.
"Daddy," she said, "Mr. Pindling is talking your language now.
He may be learning. At the P.L.P. convention he admitted that
perhaps they had missed the boat somewhere because their
education programme was producing only white collar workers."
"Did he add," I asked, "that his government had destroyed the
jobs that might have absorbed the young people who are now
coming out of the schools in the Bahamas and returning home
from universities abroad?" I asked.
"Surely you wouldn't expect him to admit that," she laughed.
"No I don't," I agreed, "but until he accepts this fact and
proceeds to make an effort to correct the grave mistakes made by
his government, he will not be talking my language."

Another day she told me that Mr. Pindling didn't sound so sure
of himself at the P.L.P. conference, then in session, as at previous
conventions.
"There is one thing that seems to be bothering him," she
added. "It is that you are still around. He said that when you left
Nassau you gave the impression that you intended to settle in
England ... that you would take out an English passport ... and
that you would never be seen in Nassau again. Instead of that,
you are still around and you have applied for a Bahamian
passport."
"That's interesting," I said. "I would have been living in
England by now and perhaps I would not have made so many
trips to the Bahamas ... certainly I wouldn't be still writing this
column. But he blocked two chances I had to sell The Tribune to
responsible buyers. This is strange, you know ... I am surprised to'
hear that he is complaining now. I really thought he wanted me
to stay around. '
"I don't know what he was trying to plant in the minds of the
Bahamian people who should by now be beyond the point where
they can be fooled by their Moses," I continued, "but the fact is
that, when the Bahamas became independent this shut out
Bahamians from obtaining an English passport ... and he knows it.
What's more. I already have a new Bahamian passport and
somehow I don't want to live in England any more. I am a
Bahamian, by God, and, whether they like it or not they can't
deny me a passport. At no time did I ever suggest that I would
change my nationality and, although I cannot live happily in the
Bahamas and see destroyed the things that people like me had
built up over the years, I will continue to be interested in the
Bahamas. I have made it clear that when I die I want my body to
rest in Bahamian soil. He knows this too but he thinks that by his
veiled suggestions he might be able to plant some more of his half
truths in the minds of the people."
* * * **
Another day my daughter told me on the phone what a man
by the name of Saunders from Bimini had to say about me in a
speech at the convention. It was all very interesting.
I didn't make notes on any of these conversations because 1
expected the details to be published in reports of the convention
in The Tribune. When the week's batch of Tribunes reached me
and these bits of news did not appear I phoned my daughter to
ask whether this information would be printed in a later issue.
"There was such a volume of stuff at the convention," she said,
"we don't have space for half of it. I don't know whether these
bits will be published or not. There are more important matters."
"Fine, I agree", I said, "but give me the information. I will deal
with it in my column. It is important to me because these are the
little ways in which people are often fooled."
And so she got the file and got the speech made by Mr.
Saunders and started reading the relevant portion to me.
"First of all," I said, interrupting her, "tell me this man's name
and everything you know about him. I want to know and I'm
sure the public would be interested too."
"His name is Basil Saunders," she said. "He is Chairman of the
Bimini branch of the P.L.P., President of the Bimini Youth Club,
Pastmaster in the Masonic Lodge, member of the local Board of
Works and a Justice of the Peace."
"Good", I said, "big shot in a tiny pond. Now tell me what he
said."
He said: "One of the contributors to stagnation of the foreign
investor is the damaging venom and propaganda of The Tribune's
editorials. It is undermining the foundation of our economy too
much. This must be stopped. This is evil. This has to be stopped.
There must be a way of stopping this damaging evil editorial.
Even if you have to put a $10,000 duty on imported editorials in
a local paper. There must be a way to combat this evil or will we
forever close our eyes and turn our backs on this cancer that is
eating away at the core of our economy?
"All we are saying is, this is a democracy. Damn that. If
something is causing a people and a country to suffer, let's get rid
of it. I say we need to get things into perspective. We, like any
other county, have our problems and we need to work them out.
I believe that God is with us in this present hour of our need but
even God helps those who help themselves."

No one can deny that I have given Mr. Saunders space in my
column to express his opinion about me. His spelling was
atrocious, his grammar shocking but I put it in proper form for
him.
It is an interesting speech but it has one remarkable feature. At
no point in his statement does he even suggest that what I write is
not the truth.
I therefore assume that he accepts what 1 write as the truth.
But the truth is inconvenient to him and the party of which he is
ah active member. And so what he is complaining about is that the
truth offers a challenge to evil that he and his kind are spreading
among our people.
He claims that God is on their side. I wouldn't presume to
dispute this claim for only God knows what is really right or
wrong in human affairs. But this much is certain ... God has
promised that He will not let truth fall to the ground.
And so, if Mr. Saunders doesn't challenge the facts 1 bring to


the attention of the Bahamian people on the ground of what is
true and what is false ... I suggest that he needs to examine his
own conscience before he dares to use the name of the Lord in
vain.

Whenever this question has been raised I have emphasized the
fact that The Tribune doesn't make the news. We merely print it.
If the government makes ugly news we must print ugly news. If
the government wants us to print pretty news then they must
make pretty news.
Mr. Saunders and his associates will have reason to complain
only when this newspaper fails to print the news they make.

Now then, ask yourself .,. what has been the news in the
Bahamas since the P.L.P. took over?
One of the first important speeches made by Mr. Pindling after
gaining control of the government in 1967 was that it was their
intention to change the complexion of Bay Street.
That was news. We printed it.

Later he made a speech at a Negro university in the U.S. in
which he said that now that they had political control of the
country they must get economic control.


That was news. We printed it.

A group of investors bought land at Freeport just before the
P.L.P. got control of the country.
The people refused to give it up.
The matter was brought to the attention of Mr. Pindling. He
warned the investors, whose money had been taken by the native
group, that these people had guns and they could shoot straight.
That was news. We printed it.
Similar situations arose in connection with land at Exuma and
Cat Island.
This was news. We printed it.
When the P.L.P. took over the government they agreed that
they would honour contracts made by the former government.
One of these contracts ... sealed and sanctified by an Act of the
Legislature ... was the Hawksbill Creek Agreement.
One day Mr. Pindling made a speech in which he declared that
the people of Freeport must bend to his will or he would break
them.
The investors in Freeport did not bend. And so his
government proceeded to amend the Act ... in my opinion a most
immoral public action. They then carried out the threat. Freeport
was broken.
At the same time his government tightened up on promises.
they had made in connection with hotel construction.
This was news. We printed it.

Then one day in England he told the English press that
independence for the Bahamas was somewhere off in the distance
... not even in the foreseeable future.
A short time afterwards his government ... in a speech by the
Governor in the Council Chamber ... declared for independence
and set the date for the summer of 1973.
This was news. We printed it.

When the question was asked why such a sudden change in
policy Mr. Pindling declared that from where he sat he could see
great things for the Bahamian people in an independent Bahamas.
Now independence is here ... and Mr. Pindling is telling a
hungry people that they were so busy preparing for independence
that they had overlooked a lot of other important things.
The grim fact is that the Bahamian economy appears to be on
the verge of total collapse.
This was news. We printed it.

Now let us go back to the beginning.
When the P.L.P. took over the government $15 million were
available in the Treasury.
Up to this time men in public life gave their services free.
Members of four generations of my family served in the
Government and Legislature, and in various other public
capacities, without receiving a farthing in pay from the Public
Treasury.
The first thing the P.L.P. government did was to pay
themselves fabulous salaries and other allowances. This was
approved by the Legislature meaning themselves, because they
then controlled the government. But later some members of the
Cabinet were given an increase in their entertaining allowances
without first obtaining Legislative authority.
This was news. We printed it.

This $15 million was soon exhausted. And the government
went on a borrowing spree. It is not yet clear how much they
have borrowed and they have refused to reveal the sources from
which some of this money has been obtained.
This was news. We printed it.


As Minister of Home Affairs the Hon. Arthur Hanna enforced
an Immigration policy that made it almost impossible for
investors and Bahamians already in business in the islands to
function efficiently.
In many departments of activity ... especially the hotel
business ... formerly profitable enterprises moved dangerously
into the red.
Investors saw the handwriting on the wall and started to move
their capital from the Bahamas. Others, who had planned to come
in, shied away.
This was news. We printed it.

The P.L.P. promised the people reduced taxes and a scaling
down in the cost of living.
Instead the P.L.P. government introduced new taxes and
increased old taxes. The cost of living skyrocketed.
This was news. We printed it.
An English company was giving the Bahamas the finest air
service especially in the Out Islands the colony had ever had.
Without going into details ... you will recall that these people
left the Bahamas because of government policies, which wanted
to make way for their own people to get into aviation.
Today the government has its own airline. And it is clear for
everyone to see where this venture is already headed. It can be
summed up in one word. Disaster.
This was news. We printed it.

Labour felt their strength because they had helped to put the
P.L.P. in power ... the Taxi Union was the party's most effective
ramrod.
Early in its administration the government not only allowed ...
but seemed to condone ... the stevedore union to break a contract
it had signed with shipping agents.
At that time the government also made a contract with a
Belgian firm to build two tugs for service in the harbour of
Nassau because, it was rumoured at the time, it didn't want to
deal with a local white firm.
All these things today have developed into Frankenstienian
monsters that the government can no longer control.
All this was news. We printed it.

Now Mr. Hanna is Minister of Finance. The cost of living is
rising. But Mr. Hanna recently declared himself as against an
increase in the wages of labour.
At the same time Government Ministers increased their already
pregnant entertaining allowances. This came immediately after
Mr. Hanna had imposed some new taxes.
The report in The Tribune on April 13 read:
"Government Ministers who last week supported a $13.5
million tax package are to receive a $2,143 increase in their
entertainment allowance."
This was news. We printed it.
Six years ago most of the men in power today were poor.
Today many of them are living like millionaires.
The old age pensioners received a mere pittance of $13 a
month. When it was suggested that this allowance should be
increased the Hon. Clifford Darling, Minister of Labour a former
taxi driver, declared that old people contributed nothing to the
economy ... and so they deserved no consideration.
Today Mr. Darling is being hounded by the Labour Unions.
This was news. We printed it.

Visitors to the Bahamas began to complain about insulting
treatment... and poor service at high price hotels. They felt that
they were not getting value for their money.
This whole change in attitude was brought into focus when the
.ge 6, Col.


WantsBahamian

in St.Barnabas

EDITOR, The Tribune
Sir, our brother and sister
PLP voters in the St. Barnabas
constituency hope that the
National General Council
members of our party would
stop playing politics and
favouritism for a while, and get
on with tht job of giving St.
Barnabas a true-born Bahamian
man to represent us in the
House of Parliament.
Mr. Fawkes was O.K. until
his own political ambition
came between him and his
people best interest, and they
turned against him because
they believed he was trying to
lead them back to the UBP
camp of bondage.
We don't have anything
against Mr. Sinclair Outten but
we feel the NGC should have
been more careful in checking
and stop playing politics.
All we want is for them to
give us a true-born Bahamian
man to represent us. A man.
say, like Clyde Gardener for
instance. From the time Mr.
Fawkes started cutting up Mr.
Gardener was the true
representative of the people to
the PLP and the Government.
He kept St. Barnabas PLP.
Mr. Gardener already knows
the problems, the needs and
wants of the people of St.
Barnabas, and we want Clyde
Gardener.
This is the first time St.
Barnabas ever asked for
anything like this, but in view of
what happened with Sinclair
Outten we feel it is justified.
St. Barnabas needs Clyde K.
Gardener.

Delta earnings up 33 p.c.


ATLANTA, Ga., At the regular
meeting of Delta Air Lines' Board of
Directors, Robert Oppenlander, senior
vice president finance and treasurer,
reported unaudited net income for the
quarter ended September 30, 1973 of
$17,421,000 (88 cents per share), an
increase of 33 percent from the
$13,096,000 (66 cents per share) earned
in the same 1972 quarter.
The 1972 quarter is restated to reflect
the August 1, 1972 merger of Northeast
Airlines, Inc. into Delta as a pooling of
interests.


The current quarter includes an
after-tax gain of $1,151,000 (6 cents per
share) from the sale of DC-9-14 aircraft.
The 1972 quarter included a
non-recurring after-tax charge of
$1,657,000 (8 cents per share)
representing the write-off of various
pre-merger and post-merger related
expenses.
Operating revenues for the quarter
were up 15 percent to $277.3 million
from $242.0 for the 1972 period.
Revenue passenger miles increased 8
percent to 3.8 billion and passenger mile


MONROE, La:- W. T. Beebe,
Delta Air Lines' board
chairman and chief executive
officer, and David C. Garrett
jr., the airline's president told
shareholders at the com -ny's
annual meeting here.
"Fiscal 1973 was another
hallmark year for your
company. Not only was it the
26th consecutive year in which
the company has been
profitable, but for the first
time in our history we
exceeded one billion dollars in
gross revenues.
"We have indeed reached a
long-sought goal."
Delta's senior executive said
also: "In reaching this billion
dollar goal, we enjoyed a 17
percent increase over the
combined totals for Delta and
Northeast from last year.
Net earnings were at an all
time high of $66 million, 99
percent above the combined
earnings of Delta and
Northeast for the previous
year."
Delta's senior executives
reported also:
"The highlight of Delta's
fiscal year was the merger of
Northeast into Delta. The
merger had the effect of two
plus two equaling five. The
results achieved were grand.
Delta will introduce its winter
schedules December 15. This
year we will have in service for
the first time the five DC-10's
leased from United, three
TriStars and five Boeing 747's.

We expect to give our
principal competitors in the
Northeast-Florida markets a
good run for their money. The
Northeast people who joined
Delta are an integral part of the
family now and are performing
well for it.
"Delta now serves 99 cities


located in the U.S., five foreign
nations and the commonwealth
of Puerto Rico. Total
employment, now 27.500,
reflects not only about 2,500
additional employees added
since the merger to
accommodate growth.
"...Traffic for the first
quarter of fiscal 1974 has
shown improvement over the
like period in 1973.
Systemwide traffic of the three
month period ended
September 30, was
7,552,000,000 seat miles and
3,789,000,000 passengers
miles, up 12.8 percent and 8.3
per cent respectively from the
same period last year.
"Delta has seen some
softening in traffic growth in
the past few months.
Nevertheless,, we think this
will be a good year for the
company." Both executives
said, however, that airline


growth anid continLed
prosperity could be "clouded"
by inflation, government
disapproval of needed fare
increases, and the fuel
shortage.

Delta plans to standardize
and modernize its fleet of let
aircraft. Standardization
reduces expenses with respect
to total ti 'ining and spare parts
and inventories. Our goal is to
reduce the fleet to three or
more different types of aircraft
by the late 1970's. We see
TriStars, DC' 10's and
727 200's as fleet mainstays.
'Delta will introduce the first
of 30 Lockheed TriStar's
(1. 101 l's) on December 15.
Engines in Delta's TriStar's are
fully-rated RB. 211 22B
Rolls-Royce fan jets. We
believe this aircraft will be the
backbone of our fleet for the
next decade.


"Delta has completed its
first year of operations with
the Boeing 727 aircraft. We
find it to be superb for Delta's
short and medium range
markets. The "wide-body"
cabin interiors will be standard
on all Delta 727's.

"-Delta has reaffirmed its
promotion-from-within policy.
We do not go outside the ranks
of our company to fill
openings. This is a policy
which pays off handsomely
and contributes to the great
morale and enthusiasm within
our employee ranks.
The fuel shortage will bring
about a reduction in schedules
by three percent effective
November 1. This will be
accomplished by removal from
service of older, less efficient
aircraft such as the Convair
880 and DC-8-33's."

Woman

realtor's


new


mission

THE ONLY Bahamian
woman to operate a real estate
office in the Bahamas is about
to fly away. She's Yvette
Bethel, the most recent broker
appointed by San Andros
(Bahamas) Ltd.
Mrs. Bethel plans to help sell
San Andros and the Bahamas
in Washington, D.C., and
Atlanta, Georgia, as well as in
her own office, Cosmopolitan
Realty.
Mrs. Bethel plans to launch
her campaign in cooperation
with Frank Smith, Investment
consultant with Bahamas
Realty Corporation in Silver
Springs. Maryland, neai
Washington.
"We'll have a cocktail party
and introduce Washington to
the opportunities at San
Andros. I think it has big
investment potential. It's
something I can sell massive
development possibilities. San
Andros is something not only
for Bahamians although I
certainly plan to sell that
marvellous open land in the
Bahamas as well," says the
enthusiastic young broker.
Mrs. Bethel travelled the
world at large in her year and
half as Miss Bahamas Airways.
"Washington is just a
beginning. Then there is
Atlanta, no other city is so
aware. They believe in our
independence. I think they'll
want to share it."
She also plans land
promotions with a touch of
glamour for Nassau.
"All it takes really to sell
San Andros is taking people
there to meet those beautiful
people, beautiful people...and
that unspoiled land."
Mrs. Bethell, already a
veteran in land sales although
under age 30, considers
womanhood far from a
handicap in the dog-eat-dog
world of real estate sal s.

your family more than you

will learn skills that will be

Hon. Carlton Francis was searched by Customs authorities in
Miami.
This was a most unfortunate affair that should have been
handled in top diplomatic circles between the two government,,
but Mr. Francis immediately held up all American tourists
arriving at the airport. About two hundred innocent visitors were
virtually held prisoners at the airport for several hours.
This made news. We published it.

Tourist figures have been maintained, even increased. But
Minister of Tourism Clement Maynard himself realizes that the
tourist business is in trouble.
The hotels are losing money and no new hotels are being built.
The reason for this situation is clear but government has
appointed a committee to investigate the cause.
The situation was summed up in a statement made by Mr.
Maynard when he said that they had to get "quality tourists"
coming to the islands again. By "quality tourists" he meant
monied people.
People who have money to spend have found changed
conditions in the islands unacceptable to their way of life and so
they have gone elsewhere.
This was news. We printed it.

When the Hon. Arthur Hanna was Minister of Education his
Ministry mercilessly hounded a cripple Bahamian teacher because
he was a friend of a U.B.P. member of the House.
At the same time black Haitians were being hunted down in
the bushes with dogs on orders of the black P.L.P. government.
Last year an investor at Crooked Island was chased out of the
Colony because, he claimed, he refused to take sides in an
election. He left behind an investment of over a half million
dollars.
A million dollar club house at Cat Island was burned down
during last September's election. This place was being used at the
time as Opposition headquarters. The club was owned by an
American investor. No insurance. Arson was suspected and there
the case rested.
Turks Island men who lived at Inagua for many years ..
married Inagua girls and raised Bahamian families have been
forced to leave the Bahamas because their wives not themselves
exercised their free right to help the F.N.M. in the last election.
This was news. We printed it.
There has been so much news made by the P.L.P. in the last
nearly seven years that I don't know where to stop.
Anyway ... just a few more bits.
While thousands of people are out of work in a formerly
prosperous and over-enployed society ... and with no hope for
employment in the foreseeable future ... some members of the
government ... themselves poor working men only a few years ago
... are acquiring mansions on "Millionaire Row" ... they and their
friends are acquiring businesses ... and in every way some of them
are living and acting like bloated plutocrats.
I am sure that Mr. Saunders must realize that this is all news
the Bahamian people are entitled to know. And because it is news
... we print it.

I am sure Mr. Saunders would not deny that some members of
his government handed out contracts to their friends at bloated
figures without calling for tenders ... and, in cases where they
have called for tenders, contracts in some cases have been
awarded to one of the highest bidders ...at times to men without
proper experience or equipment ... at a price which allowed them
in some instances to sub-contract the work to a foreign firm. This
in spite of their harsh Bahamianization programme.
This was public money... isn't this the public's business?

And while I have given him space ... and others like him full
expression in the columns of this newspaper ... the government
unblushingly sits astride ZNS radio station and denies equal use
of this public media of communication to anyone who doesn't
give lip service to their excesses and abuse of public authority.
Does Mr. Saunders suggest that no one outside P.L.P. ranks has
the right to think and speak freely in a democracy ... which he
damns because democracy is anathema to truth and human


CARLOS' DREAM

HOME IS ON

WRONG LOT
MIAMI Carlos Gonzales'
$52,000 dream house had just
been blessed by the family's
priest when he got a letter
informing him it had been built
on the wrong lot.
Luckily for the Miami
barber, the owners of the lot
were "nice people" and they
worked out an agreement.
My lawyer told me the the other
day that the other fellow and I
will swap lots and the builder
will pay the damages,"
Gonzales. 27, said with obvious
relief. The two lots were
adjacent.
The owners of the lot with
the new home. Alvin and
Jacqueline Rose. said they
discovered the mistake when a
prospective buyer went to
inspect the land and found a
brand new, Spanish-style,
three-bedroom, two-bath house
on it.
"We were pretty upset about
it," Mrs. Rose said. "The
people who were interested in
the land thought we were
crazy.
A spokesman for builder
Seligman and associates of
Miami confirmed that an
agreement had been reached
and said it would be signed
within days.
"They will swap lots and we
will pay damages to the
Roses," said Seligman to
lawyer Steve Simon. He
refused to specify the amount
of damages- which would
offset the loss of the Rose's
prospective buyer but a
source set the figure at $3,000.
Simon said two independent
surveyors checked the land
before the house was built but
both erred. Simon said the
builders had not yet decided if
they would sue the surveyors.

justice!!
One thing I was forgetting.
I brought a group of dedicated orthopedic surgeons to Nassau.
For nearly 20 years these men took care of thousands of crippled
children in the Bahamas ... and helped hundreds of adults who
needed specialist attention.
These men were given the boot by the Ministry of Health last
year under the Hon. Loftus Roker. Minister Roker undertook to
make a big addition to the hospital. Asked where the money was
coming from, he said the government had it.
But after contractors had gone to great expense to prepare bids
they were told that the contract would go to the bidder who
could arrange to finance it on a long term arrangement: with
government!
Irreplaceable doctors have left the hospital and another has
been dismis-sed for no clear reason.
I leave you to judge what conditions exist at the Princemp
Margaret Hospital today.
Now ... for just one brief look at the Out Islands ... what is the
story behind the Abaco road contracts?
These are all news stories. Would Mr. Saunders suggest that a
public newspaper should not publish this information?

And now ... just a small piece about myself.
I repeat a statement I have made many times before in this
column.
Since I left Nassau last year September, I have refused to give
interviews to foreign newspapers, radio s and TV. I have refused
to write anything for the foreign press. I have not appeared on
any public platforms.
I have been sought out for all these activities. But I have
refused. All I have done during this period has been to carry on
my job of reporting truthfully the passing scene in the Bahamas
... a scene in which members of the government are the principal
actors. They make most of the news.
I don't make news. I merely print it.
* *********
Finally ... a few words about Mr. Saunders' suggestion that my
writing be suppressed.
This is impossible. A personal attack on me would be an
infringement of my constitutional rights ... a violation of the new
Bahamas constitution and of the U.N. charter.
I refer Mr. Saunders to the recent case in Antigua when the
government tried to place a price on the head of press freedom in
that island. The Supreme Court ruled their action
unconstitutional.
If the Bahamas government wants to curtail and restrict the
activities of the press generally they will have to apply this
restriction to the whole press ... both local and foreign.
If they feel the need to cover up the truth to this extent ... let
them take the step. But such a step would serve only to further
break down confidence in the integrity of a government in a
pitifully dependent territory.
They talk a lot of nonsense about independence in the
Bahamas but in fact the Bahamas is less independent in many
vital areas today than it has been at any time during my lifetime
which spans this century.
Maybe Mr. Saunders doesn't understand any of this. But his
lack of understanding also makes news. And so we print it.
He and his kind will understand ... as some of them are
beginning to realize today ... that the price of ignorance is
starvation.

I feel I should point out to readers of this column that other
former British colonies in the West Indies are far worse off than
the Bahamas, but their leaders are not blaming their mistakes on
the Press.
The whole situation was highlighted by German Omes,
publisher of El Caribe of Santo Domingo, and chairman of
IAPA's Freedom of the Press Committee. He said:
"There are several nations whose official leadership feels and
openly proclaims that underdeveloped societies cannot afford
the luxury of a free press. The rulers of Guyana, St. Kitts and
Antigua share this strange conception of the role of journalism.
"Nothing, however, is farther from the truth. If the free press
were a handicap to develop the United States would still be a
backward country."

BURNING THE GUY














DEAR ABBY: My fiance, a talented young man, plays
the guitar in a small group, which up until now has played
only for their own enjoyment. I have told him repeatedly
that I didn't want him to play for the public, whether it be
a concert, reception, or dance. He always assured me he
wouldn't. Now the group is getting offers, and he wants to
play professionally.
Maybe I sound selfish, but I want my husband home
nights, so our children will know their father. Most musi-
cians are gone nights and weekends, and have to play in

Guy Fawkes burns again. And last night's fiery spectacle
in New Providence was accompanied by music from
Bahamian goatskin drums and the shaking of cowbells.

His music career turns


fiancee into a beast

Lord knows what kind of places.
I don't want to force him to make a choice between me
or his music because I know how much he loves his music.
Yet, I could never be happy as a musician's wife, no
matter how successful he became.
I know many girls would be thrilled to have their
husbands up on a stage, but I'm different.
STAGE FRIGHT IN WACO

DEAR STAGE FRIGHT: There can be no compromise
here. If your fiance loves music, and wants to make It his
career, you are forcing him to make a choice.
No man Is as miserable as he who sacrifices doing
what he wants most to do In order to please his wife.
Unless he's the man who does what he wants to do, and
has a nagging wife at his elbow reminding him of how
miserable SHE is.

DEAR ABBY: In answer to the girl who thought she
was getting too much attention from her father in law: She
doesn't know how lucky she is. I once had the same prob-
lem, or thought I did. Then my husband died at an early
age, and my father in law expressed his love for me. To
make a long story short, I married my father in law. I was
30, and he was 60. We have had a wonderful life together
and are still in good health. I am now 60, and he is 90.
So, don't put dvwn the father in law. Chances are he is
a lot like his son, only older. HAPPY WITH PAPPY
DEAR HAPPY: You don't say where mother in law
was when father In law "expressed his love for you," but If
she was alive and kicking, shame on Pappy for having
traded in his older model for a newer one.
DEAR ABBY: You mentioned that occasionally couples
want to be married by a clergyman, but can't find one to
marry them because it's a "mixed" marriage.
May I suggest that you refer them to the Church of
Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints [Mormon].
The LDS marriage ceremony is simple, but impressive,
and would be performed by an ordained minister recog-
nized by city and state authority. As you know, we have no
paid clergy. Our church is run by volunteers.
Since I became a bishop [this last year], I have per-
formed two marriage ceremonies for nonmembers. The
first was between a Catholic and a Lutheran, and the
second between a Catholic and a Baptist. The church or-
ganist played the music and the room where it was held
was appropriately decorated. The young couples seemed to
like it very much, and you couldn't beat the price. There
was no charge. EARL R. BUNKER, JR. [Bishop]
Alhambra, Cal.

CONFIDENTIAL TO "JUST A NICE GIRL": The "sig-
nals" a girl sends out are the way she walks, talks, and
dresses. "Packaging" Is Important. Some girls dress to
Invite rape, but they're insulted if a fellow winks at them.

IN PRECIOUS and loving
memory of our Darling Pauline
E. Symonette who now lives
with our Lord -. "two" years
today.


It may be at morn, when the
day is awaking,
When sun-light through
darkness and shadow is
breaking,
That Jesus will come in the
full-ness of glory,
To receive from the world "His
own".
It may be at mid-day, it may
be at twi-light,
It may be, perchance, that the
blackness of mid-night
Will burst into light in the
blaze of his glory,
While its hosts cry hosanna
from heaven descending.
With glorified saint and the
angels attending,
With grace on his brow like a
halo of glory,
Will Jesus receive "His own".
Oh joy! oh delight! Should we
go without dying,
No sickness, no sadness, no
dread and no crying,
Caught up through the clouds
with our Lord into glory,
When Jesus receives "His
own".
Fondly loved and
remembered by husband John,
one step son John Jr. Mr &
Mrs. Rae Wells (mother and
father), four brothers Carl,
Abbott, Clifton and Malcolm -
two sisters Viola and Diann,
and countless relatives and
friends.

CARROLL RIGHTERIS


from the Carroll RiOhtwe Isittte
GENERAL TENDENCIES: Good hunches give
answers you seek, and you can get good results
in cultural or colorful outlets, so be alert for opportunities.
Improve appearance of surroundings.
ARIES (Mar. 21 to Apr. 19) Gad about quietly. Plan how to
get your talents to the attention of bigwigs later on. Follow
hunches and good judgment. Social matters good in p.m.
TAURUS (Apr. 20 to May 20) Get advice from good friend
on intelligent handling of some problem. Attend group
meeting and make big headway. Be charming.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 21) Contact an influential
person for needed data, support. Handle civic affairs
efficiently. Show others you have real ability..
MOON CHILDREN (June 22 to July 21) A new contact
now has the right answers to your problems. Study views
different from yours carefully before deciding to reject or
accept them. A time for expansion.
LEO (July 22 to Aug. 21) Discharge responsibilities
efficiently, using more modem methods. Talk that matter over
with the one you love and come to a better understanding.
VIRGO (Aug. 22 to Sept. 22) Know what associates desire
of you. State own aims as well and cement better relations.
Get cooperation from a bigwig about that fine idea for success.
LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Get everything clean and
orderly around you. Show appreciation for good co-workers.
Shop for attractive clothing. Avoid one who has a
chip-on-the-shoulder attitude.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Relieve tensions with
inexpensive amusements you enjoy. Some special thought for
mate brings fine results. Avoid one who is a real troublemaker.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Make home more
attractive and entertain people with cultural interests. Show
you are proud of kin. Be sure that you are most careful in
motion.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 20) Talk over future
relations with allies and come to a fine understanding. Make
necessary corrections, such as repairs to property. Show you
are skillful.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19) Handle practical matters,
be sensible and clever. Use your good common-sense ideas and
make big headway via them. Avoid extravagance.
PISCES (Feb. 20 to Mar. 20) Bring order out of chaos. Plan
time for the social and you gain the backing of personal
friends. Some bigwig can also open a new door for you.
IF YOUR CHILD IS BORN TODAY ... he or she will need
good religious and ethical training early to provide a solid basis
for a life most successful both personally and in business. Your
youngster will have an almost uncanny way of knowing what
others want from the relationship, which is most helpful. Plan
now for as fine an education as possible. Some musical talent
here, too.
"The Stars impel, they do not compel." What you make of
your life is largely up to YOU!

To make things harder for
Courage in the final game, their
regular left fielder Phil Carey
had to leave. Carey in the first
game collected one hit from
three times at bat and knocked
in one run.
After observing the three
games, Cartwright is convinced
that only one pitcher can
handle Eleuthera's Hustlers and
that is Healey.
The weekend games he said
a c t ually determined the
champion of the Bahamas.
"With a good defensive team
behind Healey, he can't lose."
said Cartwright. "Healey is a
man that does not give up
anything."
"1I don't think he deserves
what he got because of the


calibre of pitcher hlie is,"
Cartwright said about Healey.
"We wanted to go all out for
the guy because of his
determination. It is
disappointing that we could
not give him what he wanted."
Three years ago. Grand
Bahama took an all-star team
to Eleuthera and again it was
behind the pitching of Healey
together with a good
combination of offence and
defence shut out the Hustlers
9-0.
"EIverytime I look out on
the mound I wish I could see
Healey," Cartwright said. "This
is one guy you really can't
replace."
With the exception ,-
tHealey's performance, it is
difticuit to pick out any other

Trainer Bahamas
heavyweight champ Boston
Blackie said: "These boys will
not be fighting any


championship tournament this
year. ",
"What we are trying to do is
to give them more fights."
Boston was referring to his
many other amateur boxers.
"It is not right for a fighter
with no fighting experience to
go against a seasoned fighter,"
he said. "What the local boxers
need is international
experience. Whether they win
or lose, they need to expose
themselves to the ways of
other boxers."
Helped in his project by


in order to meet the prospects
of his fast moving opponent.
"The lighter I am, the better I
fight and I even hit harder,"
Boston said.
Lloyd, so confident of a win
said that if Boston beats him,
he would relinquish his bout
with Rondon and allow the
Bahamian champ to take the
place. Rondon holds a seventh
round technical knock out over
Boston.
It might be that the novice
of the ring will be in for a
surprise because Boston as one
promoter pointed out "is the
most unorthodox fighter
around here. Nobody knows
what tactics he will use until he
reaches the ring.
Boston who earlier this year
was pondering retirement has
put that thought behind him.
"I was going to stop boxing
but I think I'll continue for
quite some more time," he said
"I don't want anybody
worrying about my age. Worry
about my ability."

middleweight champ Rennie
Pinder, Boston said that for the
