election to the Company's top
Friday morning.
Mr. McZier will succeed
David A. Johnson as GB("s
chief executive officer. At the
company's annual general
meeting October 25 Mr.
Johnson announced his
intention to retire as president
and chairman but stated he
would "r-main on the board in
illy I 0C.-ti, cBpa.ci -Aii i llmy
successor as president has been
found." Ile has accepted an
appointment as chief executive
officer of a large real estate
development company in
Spain.
After his election at Friday's
board meeting, Mr. McZier
stated: "I am resigning my post
with the U.S. Small Business
Administration with
considerable reluctance as I
had found the work there over
the past four years extremely
interesting and rewarding.
Ilowever, the challenges
offered in the presidency of
General Bahamian Companies
appealed at once to my
competitive business instinct
and I look forward to tackling
them with vigour and
enthusiasm."
Mr. McZier said that he had
had an opportunity to make as
thorough a study of GBC's
affairs as the time since he
became a director had allowed.
"In that connection," he
commented, "let me state that
I think Mr. Johnson has done a
thoroughly professional job in
overseeing the development of
the various firms which
comprise the general l
Bahamian Companies family.
But every business faces
problems of a more or less
complex nature and I look
forward to assisting in solving
GBC's problems as I become
totally involved in the overall
operation of the company."

Eugene Dupuch Q.C. and Mr.
Orville Turnquest. The United

Vesco, former chairman of the
IOS mutual fund complex, is
being sought by U.S.
authorities on the basis of a
July 20 federal grand jury
indictment charging he
embezzled $50,000 from
International Controls
Corporation, which he once
headed.
He is accused of diverting
the funds to buy stock for his
personal benefit while
pretending that the money had
been spent for legitimate
corporation expenses.
Arrested on a Magistrate's
warrant last Tuesday, Mr.
Vesco is free on a $75,000 cash
bond.
The last extradition case to
involve fraud charges arose in
1969 when the Canadian
government successfully won
its bid to get back
lawyer-financier Duncan Crux.
Crux, former head of the
Commonwealth group of
Companies, was extradited on
21 fraud and theft charges
involving $1 million.
10 MONTH HEARING
The case was tried before
Magistrate John Bailey.
The elderly Canadian was
represented briefly by Mr. Paul
Adderley, now External Affairs
Minister and Attorney General.
and Mr. Noel Roberts. They
withdrew however before
proceedings began.
Crux. who pleaded he had
no funds, undertook his own
defence.
The Canadian government
was represented by Mr. Patrick
Toothe.
In December 1969.
following six months of
hearings Magistrate Bailey ruled
that the Canadian government
had produced "sufficient
evidence" to have him
committed and extraditied.
Crux served notice he would
seek a writ of habeas corpus
from the Supreme Court. iHe
was represented in this action
by Mr. L. P. J. Trenchard and
Mr. David Bethel.
Crux's application was
refused by the Supreme Court
in February 1970. He then
appealed to the Court of
Appeals but his application was
rejected when the Court ruled
it had no jurisdiction over civil
proceedings as required by the
habeas corpus provisions of
Bahamian law.
A subsequent plea to the
Governor was also rejected and
Crux was flown back to
Canada in April 1970, ten
months after extradition
proceedings began.


THE BAHAMAS remembered its war dead
yesterday in services at the Cenotaph in the
Garden of Remembrance. Special remembrance
services were held in all New Providence
churches and wreaths were laid by Governor
General Sir Milo Butler on behalf of the people
of the Bahamas and by Prime Minister L. 0.
Pindling for Government as well as civic
orginisations, service and consular corps
members and youth groups.
Hundreds gathered at the Cenotaph for the
pageantry.


A detachment of the Royal Bahamas Police
Force sounded the Last Post, which was
followed by the customary two minutes of
silence in memory of all those who lost their
lives in the two great wars.
At the Cenotaph in London, our high
commissioner Alvin Braynen laid a wreath on
behalf on the Bahamian people.
Our picture by Philip Syomonette shows
Prime Minister Pindling about to lay his wreath.
To the left are members of the diplomatic and
consular corps and behind Mr. Pindling is Sir
Milo and members of the Legislature.


But as Labour Minister
Clifford Darling has so far
handed down no ruling on the
union's application to be
recognized as bargaining agent
for the radio station's
workers, there is some doubt as
to whether the Ministry would
accept any notice from the
union of the existence of a
dispute relating to those
employees.
A Ministry refusal to accept
the dispute notice might
interrupt the process by which
a trade union moves towards
legal strike action under the
Industrial Relations Act.
A union spokesman said a
letter would be given to
management late toda.
demanding the start of wage
talks within a specified period.
If the period expires without
the talks beginning, the
spokesman said, the union
would file dispute.
The spokesman gave no
indication of how long
management would be given to
set up the talks. But that the
period will be short was
illustrated by the spokesman's
comment that "we feel if thei
are going to answer at all thec
will do it in a couple of daJs."
ULTIMATUM
"If management's reaction is
favourable we hope this can he
straightened out swiftly. If
there is hedging we will file
grievance with the Ministry of
Labour with a view to strike 53
days hence."
The Act provides for a
53-day "cooling-off" period
between filing of a notice of a
dispute and the initiation of
strike action.
There may be some
difficulty experienced by the
union in getting the Ministry to
accept the notice as legitimate,
however, because the trade
dispute procedure set out in
the Industrial Relations Act


stipulates that a dispute may
be reported to the Minister "by
a trade union on behalf of
employees in a bargaining unit
for which it is recognized as
bargaining aunt, where the
dispute is a general dispute:
"Or by a trade uhion on
behalf of an employee who is a
party to a limited dispute,
where such employee was a
member in good standing of
such union at the time the
dispute arose and whether or
not such employee is included
in a bargaining unit."
'GENERAL DISPUTE
In the case of Radio
Bahamas, the dispute is a
"General Dispute" as defined
in the act, not a limited
dispute, and the union is not
the recognized bargaining
agent.
The union applied for
recognition some months ago,
but the Ministry has taken no
action on the application. The
matter is currently before the
Joint Advisory Committee for
considerate ion.
NO RECOGNIH ION
Recognition was not granted
immediately because the
Ministry is against the
formation of what Mr. Darling
has described as "Hlanket
unions" capable of generating
simultaneous strike action
against a large nuiiihib of
employers.
Such unions might
jeopardise the well-being t the
community as a whole. \Mr
Darling has said.
I he Ministr. does not
fa\our one union representing
more than one trade.
The 1-ngineering and General
Union is already the recognized
bargaining agent for the
Ba 1 ma s Fl C L t i i t v
Corporation, Shell (Bahamas)
Limited and several other
smaller concerns. The union
has been trying to expand into


Radio Bahamas and
Bahamasair. and has charged
that the Ministry's efforts to
prevent that expansion are
violations of the individual's
freedom ot association.


POLICEMAN

SHOT IN

BOTH LEGS
A POLICE constable is in
"satisfactory" condition at
the Princess Margaret
Hospital today after being
shot in both legs Saturday
night by a fleeing
motorcyclist.
Suffering from gunshot
wounds in both legs is P.C.
879 Garth Fynes.
Constable Fynes and P.C.
276 Noel Jones, both
attached to Traffic Branch,
were in a police Land Rover
on routine patrol at about
10:30 p.m. Saturday when
they spotted a motorcycle
with no lights pulling out of a
gas station on the corner of
Blue Hill Road and Poinciana
Drive. There were two men
on the cycle.
The policemen chased the
cycle west along Poinciana,
north along West Street south
and west into Scott Street,
where the two men
abandoned the cycle and
began to run away.
The policemen gave chase
on foot until one of the men
turned and fired what is
believed to have been a
sawed-off shotgun, hitting
P.C. Fynes in both legs.
As P.C. Jones stopped to
assist his fellow officer the
two men made good their
escape.
The Criminal investigating
Department is investigating
the shooting.

BUSINESS


LICENCE


FEES


PROPOSALS
AN AMENDED SHOP
licence and introduction of ma
annual licence is to be
proposed to government within
the next two weeks by the
Bahamas Chamber of
Commerce.
The proposals were
submitted by the Chamber's
Retail Committee to the
executive Wednesday for its
consideration and were
adopted with some
modifications.
The Chamber has refused to
release the details until they
have been considered by the
Ministry of Finance, but The
Tribune understands that the
two licences would broaden
the base of those eligible to be
taxed on their businesses.
The Chamber's
recommendations are the result
of a request by government as
to how the shop licence, now
five shillings inperpetuum, could
be made more realistic.
The Retail Committee has
reportedly suggested that the
shop licence be increased to
$10. In addition it
recommends that the
jurisdiction of the Licensing
Authority should be broadened
to include laundries and dry
cleaners, laundromats,
janitorial services, T.V. and
other electronic, office
machine and applicance repair
technicians, electricans and
plumbers.
The chamber feels this
would be desirable so that the
Licensing Authority could
withhold a licence until it was
satisfied that cleaning
establishments were equipped
to give proper service; that
janitorial service employees
were trustworthy and that
repairmen were qualified in
their respective trades.
BUSINESS LICENCE
On the matter of a business
licence, the Chamber feels this
should not apply to
establishments or individuals
already subject to special
licences or fees other than shop
licences unless the present fee
paid is smaller than the
applicable business licence fee.
Banks, trust companies,
insurance companies, insurance
salesmen and liquor dealers
would be placed in this
category.
A special annual professional
licence fee has also been
suggested for real estate
brokers, salesmen and land
developers, accountants,
quantity surveyors architects,
lawyers, engineers, doctors,
undertakers, embalmers etc.
The annual business licence
being proposed would apply to
all persons engaged in any type
of remunerative enterprise. It
would be over and above the
shop licence and based on the
number of employees working
at each place of business. It
would be automatically
renewable for the following
year on payment of the
prescribed fee.
The suggested schedule of
fees ranges from $15 for a
self-employed person with no
employees to $5,000 for a
business employing 100
people.
Companies with I through 3
employees would pay $50;
those with 4 through 10 $200;
1 1 through 25 $600; 26
through 50 $1,000; 51 through
99 $2,000.

Ear in post may be


ROME The mother of J.
Paul Getty III, the hippie
grandson of the American oil
billionaire, has identified a
human ear and a lock of hair
mailed to a Rome newspaper as
most likely from her son,
police said.
Police said the 17-year-old
boy's mother, former actress
G;ail Harris said she believed the
ear was from her son. They
said the woman examined the
ear for 15 minutes in the Rome
police headquarters and said
the shape was similar to her
son's ears.
Miss Harris, however, could


not give a definite answer on
the ear as it had been in the
mail for almost three weeks.
The letter containing the ear
and the lock of hair arrived
Saturday afternoon by special
delivery at the offices of II
Messaggero. It had been mailed
from Naples, police said.
The boy has been missing
for four months. His alleged
kidnappers had said in a letter
mailed to the same newspaper
one month ago they would cut
off one of his ears and lock of
hair if the family refused to
pay a ransom for his release.
The letter was immediately


of their prewedding thoughts
in an interview at Buckingham
Palace.
Phillips. a 25-year-old
cavalry officer and Olympic
equestrian star, kept his
feelings for the Princess mostly
to himself, however.
"We get on quite well


voluntary vow of obedience
does not mean that the
bridegroom will become her
matrimonial boss.
"I think it means that we are
going to be husband and wife,"
she said.

handsome fiance unveiled some

joined the Opry in 1942.
The police speculated that
the couple returned home from

handed over to police, a
Messaggero spokesman said. It
was in printed capital letters
and signed "The kidnappers of
Paul Getty III," police said.
The letter delivered to II
Messaggero on Oct. 9
demanded that the family
resume contacts with the
kidnappers within 15 days to
pay the ransom.
The original request for a
ransom was of $17 million. No
figures were mentioned in
further contacts with the
family through several notes
delivered to various
addresses.(AP).

together, really, he said.
Phillips dropped a portion of
his British reserve when asked
if he had fought against the
attraction he felt for Anne,
because she is the Queen's
daughter.
"I don't think one can say
one fought against it," he
replied. "I don't know, but if
two people love each other, it
is something they feel. When it
comes to getting engaged, it is
just something they feel they
want to do, and there is no
question about it."
The two jointly stressed
they had no intention of
marrying up to last March.
Then they were seeing each
other regularly at horse trials
and social events and
frequently denying rumours of
romance. Their engagement
was announced in May.
"We had no intention of
getting married," Phillips said,
"I was a confirmed bachelor."
Anne chimed in, "he kept
telling me that he was a
confirmed bachelor, and 1
thought at least one knows
where one stands.
"I mean, I wasn't thinking
about it. One of the myths of
my career is that people have
written over the years that the
only thing I wanted to do
when I left school was get
married. It has been one of my
bugbears. It couldn't have been
further from the truth."
The interview was
conducted in Anne's pnvate
sitting room with a view down
the stately Mall and a glimpse
of the historic Abbey, the site
of the wedding scheduled for
11:30 a.m. 6:30 a.m. EST
Wednesday. There will be a
worldwide television audience
estimated at 580 million.
Anne was asked why she had
elected to promise to obey
Phillips a pledge she need
not make.
'Firstly, because it is part of
the service." Phillips said.
'Yes," Anne agreed. "Perhaps
I am a very old-fashioned girl."
Anne said she doesn't have a
big appetite but could
"probably manage" to cook a
meal for four, has never dieted
because "I take more exercise
than the average sort of
person" and doesn't drink
because she hates the stuff.
"Champagne is my least
favourite of all drinks because it
gives me an instant hangover."
The Princess admitted she
had been distressed by
criticism of the expense of the
royal wedding, the 18-day
honeymoon cruise in the West
Indies aboard the Royal yacht
Britannia and the British
Army's provision of a low-rent
house for newlyweds near tht
Sandhurst military academy.
She said the criticism "is not
accurate and it puts the blame
at our feet when we don't
really think it was anything to
do with us."
Asked of their hopes for the
future, Phillips said: "A certain
amount of privacy that we
may be allowed to have a
private life."(AP).

-Life on my own-



by Lady Bird

WASHINGTON Lady Bird Johnson said yesterday she
didn't think a situation like Watergate could have occurred
during the Johnson administration because her late husband
"minded every, detail as best he could."
"I grieve for it," she said of Watergate, which she feels
"got spill-out on both parties and on all people." But the
former First Lady added: "My faith in the ultimate fabric
in this country is as strong as ever."
Mrs. Johnson, widow of President Lyndon Johnson,
advised young people to "get in there with their energy,
determination and their youth" and try to improve politics.
In a television-raido interview on Westinghouse
Broadcasting Co. from the LBJ ranch in Texas, Mrs.
Johnson, who will be 61 in December, talked of being on
her own now, recalled President Johnson's last years, and
spoke of the future.
Asked if she wanted her grandchildren to go into politics,
Mrs. Johnson replied: "If they were strong and tough
enough and smart and good enough."
As for herself, Mrs.
Johnson said she was not
interested in getting into
politics. "That was Lyndon's
life, and I loved participating
in it for 38 years....but it was
not my life."
She plans to continue to
work in beautification,
"becuase it's what makes my
heart sing."
About a year and a half
S before he died, Mrs. Johnson
said the former president
went back to smoking,
explaining: "I love it, it gives
me pleasure...l don't think
Cancer can catch me before I
S die." (AP).

Monday, November 12, 1973


By ETIENNE DUPUCH
SPECIAL STUDIES have been conducted in the Bahamas to
try and discover why there are so many cases of high blood
pressure in the islands.
High blood pressure is so common in the Out Islands that,
whether a person has it or not, many think they do.
When I used to travel among the islands with Dr. Stevan
George, Community Welfare doctor, most of the women who
came to his clinics declared: "Doctor, I got high blood."
This was only a few years ago and already most people have
forgotten the valuable services performed among the islands by
Dr. George who literally gave his life to this work. Community
Welfare was financed by a group of men in the city headed by
Trevur Kelly. It was carried on before the government provided a
medical service for the islands.
I knew the people he served and I was disappointed by the fact
that when he died suddenly of a heart attack as a result of
overwork and privation in his island travels that only a few of the
people he served attended his funeral. And, indeed, I understand
that the Community Welfare Committee has failed to put a
marker over his grave. I feel that the service this man performed
for our people should be engraved in stone.
************
I didn't intend to mention Dr. George when I started this
article. I just went off on one of my tacks. Now let us get back on
the main course.
Dr. George always felt that high blood pressure among people
in the Out Islands was the result of using a great deal of salt ...
and probably pepper too. Many of our people like highly
seasoned food.
Many diseases are traceable to dietary habits.
*************
A study of an Indian tribe in which many of the men had
cancer, as compared with very few women, revealed that the
men ate first. The women accepted their leavings.
The food was served to the men steaming hot. They drank
soup at a high temperature. When the women went to the table
the food was cold.
It was just as simple as that!
****ii*******
A news despatch from Loma Linda, California on new
discoveries in science reveals that the cancer rate among Seventh
Day Adventists is very low -. half that of the general population.
The U.S. National Cancer Institute is now conducting studies to
try and find the reason.
A UPI news story reports that, "Adventists, like Mormons, do
not smoke or drink, possibly explaining their lower incidence of
lung, bladder, mouth and esophagus cancers. But since the rates
are lower across the board, Dr. Roland L. Phillips, who heads the
research team, said, the lack of tobacco and alcohol does not
explain the lower rate of such cancers as breast, leukemia,
lymphoma, colon and rectal.
"Phillips believes the key may lie in the conservative church
groups dietary habits.
"The doctor said Adventists often use whole grains and other
unrefined foods and that most of them do not eat meat or hot
spices. They seldom drink tea or coffee."

French people treat wine as a food. It is served at table and
from early childhood a Frenchman absorbs a great deal of wine.
The national consumption of wine in France is high.
There is not a great deal of drunkenness in France as in
countries where people imbibe hard liquors, but the nation has a
high incidence of diseases that are traceable to the alcoholic
content of wine.

A great deal is heard about cholesterol these days as the cause
of heart trouble. This is controlled by diet.
An interesting study was conducted recently on Irish families
to discover whether it was food or a way of life that caused this
condition.
A study was made of members of hundreds of families in
Ireland who had stayed on the farm doing hard labour work as
compared with members of the same families who had migrated
to the U.S., made a success of their lives, and were cooped up in
offices behind desks all day.
The hard working members of the families ate anything and
everything but had no heart condition. They sweated the
harmful fats out of their system.
The prosperous members of the families in the U.S. lived on a
diet but still a large percentage of them died from heart failure in
middle age.
Now that farming in Ireland is being mechanized the men no
longer labour and sweat in the field the incidence of heart
failure among the farmers has increased.
*********i***
A great deal has been written recently about villagers in the
Caucasus mountains along the foothills of Russia ... and also in a
mountainous region of South America ... Where men are still
raising families at 100 years of age. Good job. Why wasn't I born
there!
The life expectancy in these regions is 120 to 130.
It is said that most people in these areas die only when their
mules fall over a cliff with them!

Ruth Winter has been writing an interesting series of articles on
health in The Miami Herald. In her third article she asked the
question: "Can The Aging Process Be Stopped?"
"Perhaps the most feared aspect of aging is the loss of mental
prowess," she writes.
"We do lose brain cells. After the age of 30, we lose several
thousands cerebral cells every day; the brain decreases in bulk, so
that by age 75, it is slightly over 50 percent of its original weight.
"Yet, some people never seem to lose their intellectual
abilities, even in extreme old age. George Bernard Shaw, for
instance, was still writing creatively at 94 years; Picasso was busy


painting on his 90th birthday; Bernard Baruch was still advising
presidents just before he died at 95 years; Charles G. Abbot, one
of America's foremost astrophysicists, celebrated his 100th
birthday by filing for a patent on a radically new zero-pollution
solar engine.
"Our memories usually give us the first clue that our minds are
not as sharp as they once were. But David Roth, the memory
expert, could still recite Thomas Gray's 128-line "Elegy in a


Country Churchyard," cite the day of the week for any date from
1752 to 3000 and repeat the telephone numbers of any of the
600 members of his chapter of the Rotary Club on his 97th
birthday."
Ruth Winter proceeds to give some scientific reasons for the
natural process and then adds: "Some of us who are born with a
complete set of brain cells go about hastening their destruction.
fie loss of brain cells can be related directly to life style. Those
who are heavy smokers, drinkers and drug addicts lose brain cells
at an accelerated rate, as do those who take sleeping pills, don't
eat properly or overeat. Those who are depressed or who can't
sleep also hasten the depletion of cells.. And we may have
practically a whole generation with premature loss of brain cells;
studies done in Texas have shown that repeatedly smoking
marijuana causes premature aging of the brain."
******************
The Secretary of the Rotary Club I attend in Coral Gables is an
amazing man at 93. At every meeting he has a session in which he
entertains members with short, pithy jokes. He is always the life
of the party.
Recently Merv Griffin introduced a man of 106 on his daily
"talk programme" on TV's channel 4 where he interviews
celebrities. This man was not only physically vigorous but he was
as mentally alert as any of the young people who appeared on the
programme that day.
|i****** *********
I am now approaching 75. Today I feel more mentally alert
than at any time in my life.
I learned to smoke and drink in the British army during the
first world war.
After my return to Nassau I gave up smoking when I was 20
because I felt that it was an expensive, wasteful foolish habit.
I accidentally got drunk one day soon after I came home from
the war. I was drinking with some of my comrades in a closed
room in the city. Everything was fine until I stepped outside and
the breeze hit me in the face. I was drunk. And for the nearly a
mile to my house on Shirley Street I climbed imaginary
mountains all the way.
When I got in my bedroom at home I fell down in front of a
full length mirror and found myself looking in the face of a man 1
didn't recognize. It was the face of a bleary-eyed giggling idiot.
In that moment I decided that alcohol too was damn
foolishness. I take a drink at a party occasionally. As a matter of
fact, my doctor has recommended a brandy a day but weeks and
months go by without my taking a brandy. I just don't feel the
need for it.
And I don't like highly seasoned foods.
This way of life may account for the fact that my doctor tells
me that I am not only in perfect physical condition but that he
can find no evidence of aging on my body.
I have had several critical illnesses but I have beaten them all
back and, when the crisis has passed, I have staged a rapid
recovery that has amazed the doctors who took care of me.
Just before I left Nassau a year ago there was some evidence of
aging in my eyes. An eye specialist said this was a normal process
of aging and he could do nothing about it. Since I have stopped
worrying about conditions in the Bahamas and decided that if the
Bahamian people choose to destroy themselves there isn't
anything I can do about it, the aging condition in my eyes has not
only disappeared but I can now work without glasses for the first
time in a great many years.
And so it looks as though despite my advanced age I may
be writing this column for a few years more. I now feel that I
might lay down my pen when I make my century.
This is remarkable because I do not come from a long-lived
family. My grandfather died at 36 and my grandmother was just
past 60; my mother at 36 and my father at 44.
And so I'm long overdue. But I'm not complaining because I
find my present completely detached way of life a very pleasant
experience.
**************** 4
One day I hope to be able to repeat a statement made by a
man in a church after the pastor had preached a sermon on the
importance of love .... "love thy brother," he declared.
At the close of his sermon he asked anyone in the audience
who had no enemies to stand up.
An old man stood.
"That's wonderful, the pastor beamed, "now will you tell the
congregation why you have no enemies."
"They're all dead," the old man said. And sat down.
All the people who harassed me when I was a young man are
now dead. I wrote their obituaries and had something pleasant to
say about all of them. And I know what I will say when I write
the obituaries of the unwise young group who are now riding high
"on the hog" in the Bahamas today.
If I don't "make it" it won't really matter. The joy of life is
the ability to live in the future.
**************
FOOTNOTE TO HISTORY: Since writing this article I have
read an interesting report on a new trend in Britain where the
people are now drinking more alcoholic beverages then ever in
their history.
As a result it is estimated that this nation of 55 million people
will have one million alcoholics by 1980.
During the last 20 years the population has increased by about
one-half percent a year, a total increase of 10 percent.
At the same time the consumption of beer has increased by 42
per cent, hard liquor 116 per cent, and wine 307 percent.
Most recent studies showed 700,000 alcoholics in the nation
with an increase of 53 percent in the years from 1964 to 1971.
The reason given for this startling increase in alcoholism in the
nation is women's lib.
"Twenty years ago," the report states, "the public house (pub)
was still largely the domain of the male. Today the situation is
completely changed. It is common to find almost as many
females as males populating public houses and clubs."
*4i*************
The habits of women all over the world have undergone a


radical change.
I recall that when I came home from the war in 1919 none of
my female friends drank or smoked. They disapproved of their
male friends indulging in these.habits
At dances the few men who drank had to hide a bottle under a
tree in the backyard. Occasionally they would slip out and get a
drink and then suck peppermint candy to kill the smell on the
breath.
Today many of these same women smoke and drink as heartily
as men.
Liquor and drugs especially have become a major problem
in the western hemisphere today. I can be thankful that, so far, I
have no drinkers or drug takers and only a couple of smokers -
in my family. I can only hope and pray for the rising
generation.
It is now estimated that by the time children in the U.S. have
reached the eighth grade 80 to 85 percent of them have had some
experience with drugs. Hence Ruth Winter's reference in her
article to the possible premature loss of brain cells by a whole
generation.
**************

BACKS WOMEN'S RIGHTS H
EDITOR, The Tribune,
Having been a passionate
fighter for Human Rights all
my life (now and again actually
risking life and limb in this
passion) it is a joy to welcome
to London on vacation with
her family that Bahamian
fighter for Women's Rights -
Rosemary Christie.
We were both overjoyed to
learn today's announcement by
the U.K. Government that it
will soon be illegal to
discriminate against women in
this country.
In some respects the
Bahamas are more liberal than
the U.K. in this For example
there are no women taxi
drivers in London. The
independant-minded and
sometimes truculent London
cabbies have until now
successfully resisted women
cab drivers. While in Nassau I
have enjoyed being driven from
the airport by a charming lady
taxi driver. But I did note that
this lady was subjected to
good-natured banter by
Nassau's "chauvinistic" male
cab drivers. But it was all
good-natured fun.
Now perhaps the lady
London cabbie will soon
emerge.
Rosemary Christie tells me
that she is anxious to have
women's rights incorporated
("as was promised to us"
Rosemary informs me) in the
constitution of the newest
member of the U.N. the
Bahamas.
Having long enjoyed a
beautiful love affair with the
Bahamas I endorse Rosemary's
wishes.

are asked to assemble in St.
Agnes Church at 3:30 p.m. in
order to go in procession onto
the grounds," the release said.


Islanders and long-time
residents are not, what else
can be done by the Prime
Minister and his
Naturalisation and
Citizenship Department with
impunity?
Outten has no special right


to immediate citizenship over
others who applied even
before he did whether this is
politically expedient for the
Government of the day or
not.
I feel that political offices
in an independent Bahamas
constitute security-sensitive
positions. Even Henry
Kissinger, despite his age-old
good standing as a refugee
concerned with world
improvement, had to take the


I long decisive process of
applying for citizenship. Yet
this cannot be said of
"Yes'M'Boss" people like
Outten and other
non-Bahamians without
Bahamas- directed sympathies
who hold security-sensitive
positions for which
Government can find native
sons of high professional
calibre and moral integrity.

(he iIbrtbtm


By Abigail Van Buren
S1M By Chicse Trilbaw-. Y. Newi S d., Inc.
DEAR ABBY: I have two daughters who are pregnant
and not married. One is 15, and the other is 18. The 15 year
old is just entering 10th grade, and I don't want her to
marry so young. I think she should finish high school first.
The boy is 18, and plans on going to college. I spoke with
his mother, and she said after the baby comes, if it looks
like her son, MAYBE he will marry my daughter.
The 18 year old is expecting first. Her boy friend said
he didn't have any plans for marriage right now because
he has five more car payments to make, but when he is
free and clear he will pay something toward the baby's
support. Meanwhile, he hardly ever comes around any-
more, but he's been seen out with other girls. My daughter
is so dumb, she thinks he will marry her when he's out of
debt.
Now that you have the facts, here is my question: Do
you think I should give my daughters baby showers?
UNDECIDED
DEAR UNDECIDED: It isn't proper for a close mem-
ber of the family to give showers. They are usually given
by friends.

DEAR ABBY: My mother was a young widow with
three children when she remarried. Abby, not all men can
accept stepchildren as their own. My stepfather has been
good to me [the only girl] but he's been awfully hard on
the boys. One ran away years ago, but the other is sticking
it out until he finishes school. Mom and I have always tried
to give the boys lots of love to make up for the lack of

fatherly love.
However. Mom is now destroying the child she's trying
to protect. He can't get up in the morning himself, so she
wakes him four or five times and has breakfast waiting for
him. She drives him to and from work, otherwise he'd be
late. He's refinanced when he overspends, and Mom runs
all his errands-the latest being payment of a traffic ticket.
[He didn't even say "thank you."]
I am seven years older than this brother, self-support-
ing, and live in the same town. I would like to see the kid
allowed to mature. I know he would, if Mom would only let
him. Watching her wait on him constantly infuriates my
stepfather. If I say anything to Mom, she says I'm jealous.
I don't think I am. I am only concerned because the boy
will be 20 next month and he's incredibly immature and
irresponsible. I'd do anything to get my mother off his
neck. Should I talk to a friend she respects? We have no
clergyman. BIG SISTER
DEAR SIS: Yes! If the friend makes as much sense as
you do.

CONFIDENTIAL [AND MANY THANKS to all who
wrote to inform me that the poem I was trying to track
down is: "Which.the Chicken, Which the Egg." And it goes
like this:
"He drinks because she scolds, he thinks,
She thinks she scolds because he drinks,
And neither will admit what's true,
That he's a sot and she's a shrew."
[Ogden Nash I
And the first person to get the facts to me was Carol
Bitter, the gracious, wideawake librarian of the Woonsock-
et, S. D., Public Library. [Woonsocket's population is 835!]

DEAR ABBY: I am a 25-year-old married woman, and
my problem is one I've had all my life. I can't get along
with my mother.
I married last year and fortunately moved to another
state so I see my mother infrequently, but it's a very
upsetting ordeal when I do. She always has picked on me
and criticized me, and she still treats me like a two-year-
old. However, she adores my husband, and he can do no
wrong.
When mother comes to visit us she criticizes my apart-
ment, my cooking, and even the way I dress. I try so hard
to control myself and never answer her back because I
don't want to be disrespectful. It's a terrible strain on me.
She still says [in front of others]: "Sit up straight! Don't
talk so fast! Quit fussing with your hair!" I feel like a kid
in nursery school Instead of a grown woman.
My husband says: "Pay no attention to her," but it's
not that easy. When I knew she was coming last time I
talked to my doctor and asked him to give me something to
help me relax. He said it was time I grew up and demand-
ed to be treated as an adult, and if mother refused, I
should tell her to stay home until she can.
I hate to do that because I love my father and he would
suffer. What now? BUNDLE OF NERVES
DEAR BUNDLE: Your doctor gave you excellent ad-
vice. You can demand to be treated as an adult without
being disrespectful, and until you do, you can expect to be
treated as an incompetent, awkward adolescent.

Problems? You'll feel better If you get it off your chest.
For a personal reply, write to ABBY: Box No. 070, L. A.,

ELEUTHERA'S

ARE KINGS


OF THE


By GLADSTONE THURSTON
E LEUTHERA'S softball
champs the Governors Harbour
Hustlers, armed with their
battalion of competent hitters,
stormed into New Providence's
Ministry of Works with a ten
hit attack and, behind the 12
strike out pitching of speedster
Tony Petty took a 12-6 victory
yesterday and the
Commonwealth of the
Bahamas Men's Softball
championship .
"We knew what they were
and so we knew what to expect
from them," commented
Hustlers player/coach David
Micklewhite. "The Ministry has
a good team but it's just that
they jumped in the wrong
class."'
Having eliminated Freeport's
champs (ourage Beer 2-1 in
the best of three semi-finals,
the Hustlers spearheaded by
the 10 strike out/three hit
pitching of Glen Griffin and
the power hats of Rudy
Johnson and Sylvanus Petty
convincingly stopped the
Ministry 12-2 taking a one
game lead in the best of three
finals, Friday .
With the second game
previously scheduled for
Saturday, rain fell when
Freeport's Classic Bucks in the
bottom of the first were
battling their way against a ten
run Blazers lead and washed
the night away. A double
header was rescheduled for
yesterday at the John F.
Kennedy Softball Park.
Going into yesterday's game,
New Providence's champs
player/coach Leon "Apache"
Knowles again started left
handed Paul Johnson who,
against his home town players
took the loss on Friday.
Without the services of Randy
Rodgers to give him a hand on
the mound Johnson yesterday
gave up eight runs before he
was substituted in the bottom
of the third inning.
Adrian Rodgers was moved
from behind the plate to the
mound with slow lobs but that
resulted in four more runs for
the Hustlers.
"I feel we had a slim chance
but when Randy got injured it
was too much for me," said
Johnson after the Hustlers had
taken two straight.
Johnson in Fleuthera used
to practise with the Hustlers.
"I have to give it to them."
continued Johnson. "they are
the best. Every pitch I throw

over they hit it."
Although many fans thought
the Hustlers triumph was an
upset, coach Knowles did not
agree. "When you lose one of
the better pitchers we had
there had to be a change. I
don't think it was an upset, we
made a good showing."
Obtaining added moral
support from the Freeport
contingent the Hustlers, after
silencing the Ministry on no
runs and no hits in the top of
the tirst, jumped on Johnson in
the bottom of that frame for
four leading runs.
Second baseman Rudy
Johnson touched off that rally
when he smacked Johnson's
one ball two strikes pitch over
left field's for a two run
homer. Johnson's hit drove in
lead off batter Paul Davis who
was on with a base on balls.
Sylvanus Petty and third
batter drew another walk and
with one down centre fielder
Kermit Graham touched a
grounder to first baseman
S he rwin Taylor that
culminated in a two base
throwing error.
faylor in an attempt to get
Petty to second threw the relay
wild giving both runners ample
tiiiime to secwre second and
third.
It was a pass ball that scored
Petty from third before John
Sands on a sacrifice fly ball
scored Graham for the Hustlers
4-0 lead.
Having picked up two strike
outs in the first, Petty came
through with two more in the
second but not before Adrian
Rodgers had done damage to
his game. Rodgers with
Sherwin in following a walk
ripped Petty out of the park
for a two run homer.
However, this did not bother
the Bahamas champions and
Rudy Johnson's rbi double
moved them up by one.
Two more strike outs for
Petty in the top of the third
saw the Ministry going down
one, two, three and the
Hlustlers in the bottom frame
coming up with three more
runs. Graham in that inning
clipped an rbi triple and scored
on John Sands' rbi single. John
also scored on his brother
(harles Sands' rhi single.
Following the third run,
coach Knowles then moved

Adrian to the mound. There he
was met with a torrent of boos
coming from the tlustlers fan
box.
However, he managed to
hold the Hustlers to four runs
from four hits over the fourth
and fifth innings. Graham and
Micklewhite in the fifth inning
both picked up rbi's.
The Ministry from the top
of the fifth began to show their
old form and Willie Knowles
who struck out his first two
times at bat jammed an rbi
single into right field driving in
Paul Demeritte.

Again in the fifth, Sherwin
Taylor's rbi double that scored
his brother Fred was followed
by Rodgers's second two run
homer of the game moving the
Ministry to six where they
remained tor the seven innings
contest. Knowles in the top of
the second picked up another
base hit but it came to no good
as his remaining three
team-mates failed to see first
base.
Throughout the whole
finals, "pitching and good
hitting carried us through,"
noted coach Micklewhite. "We
couldn't say much for our
defence because our infielders
and outfielders didn't have
much to do."
Actually, the Hustlers came
with the expectation of taking
two straight from the Ministry


of Works. "If things would
have gotten hot, we would
have double banked the
Ministry," said Micklewhite. In
other words, pitched Petty
four innings and Glen three.
When the Ministry started
their rally, Griffin was seen to
be warming up in the bull pen.
However, as Petty settled
down, it was no problem for
the Governors Harbour
Hustlers.

"And you know what makes
me feel so proud," noted first
base coach Kingsley Bethel,
"we are the first Bahamas
Softball Champions in the
independent nation."

CRUSHERS star running
back Sharkie Martin rushed
152 yards in 21 attempts and
scored three touchdowns to
lead the Eight Mile Rock
Crushers to a convincing 26-6
win over the AID Stingrays
yesterday in Freeport.
Playing with a new found
confidence following their win
over the Hurricanes last week
the Crushers ensured that the
Stingrays kept their record of
"no wins" in Freeport.
The Stingrays opened the
scoring late in the second
quarter when Phillip Dorsett
intercepted a Phillip Grant pass
to score a TD.
The Crushers trailed 0-6
until late in the third quarter.
On a fourth and eight
situation on the Crushers 41
yard line Pat Grant moved
back to punt but instead ran
21 yards giving the Crushers a
first down on the Stingrays 38.
From there Sharky Martin
carried the ball to the 32 yard
line then galloped 32 yards
making the score 6-6.
In the fourth quarter the
Crushers defence came to life
and completely shutoff the
Stingrays offence, while Martin
and Grant crashed repeatedly
through their secondary

inspires Crushers


scoring two and one TDS
respectively.
Martin rolled up 152 yards
while Grant tallied 76 yards.
In a final bid to win the
Stingrays replaced Pat
Rahming with the experienced
but injured Porky Dorsett at
quarterback.
Dorsett threw 8 passes for
one completion and one
interception but his efforts
were in vain.
THE FREEPORT
Hurricanes featured in the
second major upset of the
BAFA season Saturday when
the Classic Pros clinched their
first win of the season 18-6 at
the QE Sports Centre.
Up until last week the
Hurricanes remained
undefeated before cross town
rivals Eight Mile Rock Crushers
beat them. In spite of this their
second loss to the Pros, firmly
embedded at the bottom of the
league table shocked fans and
players.
The Hurricanes took the ball
on the Pros 19 yard line in the
first quarter and in six plays
drove 81 yards where
quarterback Zac Smith scored
the first TD to put the
Hurricanes 6-0 ahead.
Throughout the rest of the


half neither side sustained a
drive and it wasn't until the
third quarter that the Pros
drew level at 6-6
Following a 72 yard drive
lasting 13 minutes in the third
quarter, Pros running back
Whitney Rolle ran 12yds for
the TD.

HIT TWO

RED LIONS started on the 'good foot' in
the opening game of the Bahamas Football
Association soccer season yesterday when
they defeated a poor Tropigas side 2-0 at
Clifford Park.
In front of a large crowd and with a strong
breeze blowing, Red Lion showed that they
will be a foree to be reckoned with this season
as they dominated for most of the game
against a Tropigas side which looked only a
shadow of last year's league champions.
Tropigas clearly missed their main
goalscorers Caple and Murray. Bob Elliot
lacked support in the front line but was
decidedly dangerous on the rare occasions
that he received the ball in or around the
Lions' box.
Darville and Love's distribution from the
midfield was inconsistent and injured skipper
Rodgers' ball control and distribution were
badly needed.
In defence, Andy Guantine played a fine
game while goalkeeper Mike Joincey, who was
kept busy by the Lions' forwards throughout
the game, played well under pressure.
The Lions on the other hand appear to be a
strong side.
John Green and Charles Bartram were
sound at the back while Maples, Seville and
Whitfield, supported by Knight in the
middle, always looked like scoring.
The Lions applied considerable pressure on
the Tropigas goal from the start and after 20
minutes outside left Whitfield slotted a low
skimming shot past Joincey into the Tropigas
net. But the referee had blown for offside and
the goal was disallowed.
Five minutes later Whitfield crossed from
the left and skipper Don Maples standing
unmarked on the far post headed into the net
for a 1-0 lead.
In the ensuring siege Seville nearly scored
twice for the Lions when he broke through on
the right and hit the woodwork on both
occasions.
Ten minutes before halftime, the Lions
took a 2-0 lead when Joincy fumbled the ball
following a misunderstanding with left back
Peter Cole and Maples crossed the ball to

goal.
Tropigas came close to equalising just
before halftime in a goalmouth scramble but
Green cleared off the line with Paul Johnson
sprawled on the ground.
In the opening minutes of the game
Johnson again saved the Lions when he dived
brilliantly at the feet of charging Tropigas
forwards.
Tropigas striker Bertie Ling gave the Lions
another scare in the 15th minute of the half
when he cracked a fine drive forcing Johnson
to dive to his left but from there it was all
Red Lions.
Knight fired wide of the right post in the
30th minute and Tony Walker forced a fine
save from Joincy five minutes later with a 35
yard shot from the right.
In the closing minutes Tropigas nearly
scored a consolation goal but again the Lions
cleared off the line to hold on to their
convincing 2-0 lead.
