workers on strike action;






BEC union pledge support


By MIKE LOTHIAN
THE HOTEL AND CATERING WORKERS UNION "cannot avoid" further strikes in the contract dispute with
the Hotel Employers Association, and BEC workers have promised they will also strike, if necessary, in support of
fellow-uniQnists in the hotel industry, it was revealed last night.

BWC leader accuses


govt. of 'ulterior motive'


TRADE UNIONIST Dudley
Williams today accused the
government of an ulterior
motive in seeking to amend the
1970 Industrial Relations Act.
The purpose, he said, was to
decentralize the unions,
penalise their leaders and turn
the Labour Minister into a
virtual dictator with life and
death control of the trade
union movement.
Speaking for the Bahamas
Workers' Council, Mr. Williams
labelled the legislation as
nothing more than Slave Law
w, se orily purpose was to
i, ke the workers slaves to the
employers.
"Workers cannot striKe
because government has many
tricks in that law to prevent
strikes.
"Employers sometimes fire
workers on the spot and the
most they give is two weeks
notice. In the same way
workers should only have to
give two weeks notice for a
strike.
"In the same way that

away from workers with no
legal penalty, workers must be
free to withdraw their labour,':
Mr. Williams asserted.
The BWC he said objected to
all eight parts of the Industrial
Relations Act. Nor would its
objections be removed because
government chose to amend
the Act.
He maintained that the /.ct
violates two fundamental
conventions of the
International Labour
Organisation No. 87 dealing
with freedom of association
and protection of the right to
organise and No. 98,
guaranteeing the right to
organise and to bargain
collectively.


In particular the union
leader struck out at Clause 72
of the Industrial Relations Act
which he said banned all strikes
against the government as
illegal.
"Thus if government acts to
abridge the constitution and
set up a dictatorship and if
workers strike, they can be
thrown in jail and fined."
He said Labour Minister
Darling himself had threatened
workers who demonstrated at
the hotels with a loss of their
jobs.
"Workers are protecting
themselves but government
wants to take away their jobs,"
Mr. Williams charged.


The union has been provided
for succession of authority in
case current union leaders are
jailed for their part in
Thursday's three-hour illegal
strike at eight major hotels,
about 500 hotel workers were
told. The union held a mass
meeting at its incomplete
headquarters building on
Balfour Avenue, which is
within the Englerston
constituency represented in the
House by Labour Minister
Clifford L. Darling.
Making a surprise
appearance as a guest speaker
at the meeting was Dudley
Williams, outspoken president
of the Engineering and General
Union.
Mr. Williams and the
leadership of the Hotel Union
are known to have had serious
differences on labour policy,
but the Hotel union's current
involvement, in a major
industrial dispute has
apparently sparked at least a
temporary marriage of
convenience.
MORE STRIKES
Hotel union president
David Knowles, keynote
speaker last night, declared
that "we are going to have
more demonstrations. We
cannot avoid having more
demonstrations. I want you to
understand that."
But, he said, the
demonstrations will differ from
those of the past, and he laid
down the ground-rules for
future actions.
"You must decide," he
warned the workers, "to
protect your jobs at all costs.
"Should the union call a
demonstration again, report to
work, report to your
department, and don't move,
don't lift a finger. This means
that workers in the dining
room must stay in the dining
room, workers in the laundry
must stay in the laundry,
workers in the kitchen must
stay in the kitchen.
"While you are in the
I laundry, the kitchen, the
dining room, the yard or
wherever," he continued, "you
don't let anybody touch you.
Don't let management touch
you, don't let security touch
you, don't let the police touch
you. You work there, you stay
there.
"You are standing up
peacefully. In the event
anybody touches you, you
have the right to protect
yourself. Don't accept a
friendly pat on the back.
Consider a pat on the back as
a personal assault on you, and
you must fight back and
defend yourself. When it
comes to court we would
have legal aid for you," Mr.
Knowles said.


LEGAL ACTION?
lie went on to remind workers
that following Thursday's
strike, Mr. Darling warned that
the matter was in the hands of
the legal authorities.
"As of today," Mr. Knowles
said, "the matter has been
taken up by the Attorney
General. So there is a question
of whether union officers will
be brought before the court.
"What we do know is that
should the law decide to issue
warrants we already have a
plan afoot whereby shop
stewards and other members
can carry on 'til we are set free.
We are taking extreme
possibilities into
consideration."
He said Mr. Darling had
suggested the union should not


push too hard for wage
increases because the hotels
were adversely affected by
competition and the decline in
the value of the U.S. dollar.
LIGHT COSTS
"He is concerned about the
problems of the industry, but
in October they called a
meeting and told the hotels the
cost of electricity would go up.
They didn't consider
competition or the decline of
the dollar then. All they
decided was that they were
going to raise the cost. They
didn't take into consideration
that if the hotels have to pay
more for electricity they
wouldn't be able to pay higher
salaries. They didn't give a
damn about the affect of their
increases for electricity on our
salary talks."
Union secretary Bobby
Glinton, who chaired last
night's meeting, introduced Mr.
Williams to the crowd as "the
most publicised unionist in the
country." "
He said "last week when we
were planning our move
Brother Williams pledged to us
his total support. He pledged
that if necessary he would take
out his forces with ours."
MONEY GAME
Mr. Williams pointedly
opened with the observation
that "the question of the day is
if the Minister requires $2,000
a month to feed his family,
how can you hotel workers
feed your families on $6'a day?
'The name of the game," he
declared, "is money."
He told the hotel workers
"you have been playing with
those hotel people too long.
We have woken up too late and
some of us have been
(obscenity) by the PLP toz
long."
He declared "if it takes
blood let's have it, if it takes
riots let's have that, too."
He reaffirmed that "we shall
challenge Darling next
election," and pointed out that
organised labour should take
advantage of the current
vacancy of the St. Barnabas
House seat and put up a labour
candidate.
But he declined comment
when Mr. Glinton declared "I
think it is time for Mr. Williams
to commit himself to St.
Barnabas."
Thomas Bastian, the Hotel
Union's chief organiser,
notified the workers that it
might become necessary in a
further strike to have all
workers walk off their jobs and
march to Bay Street for a mass
demonstration outside the
House of Assembly.
Mr. Bastian asserted that "it
is high time for the hotels to
realise that without you, the
worker, there is no hotel, and
without the hotels there is no
country."

ARGENTINA


CONFIRMS


VESCO HAS


RESIDENCY
BUENOS AIRES,
ARGENTINA (AP) An
Argentine federal judge ruled
last month that U.S. fugitive
financier Robert Vesco could
not be extradited should he
seek refuge here, a court
official said today.
Vesco, now on $75,000 bail
in the Bahamas and fighting
extradition to the United
States, flew into Argentina
secretly in late October to
obtain the ruling.
Officials said he was given a
permanent residence visa,
allowing him unlimited and
free access to Argentina.
Vesco is charged with
defrauding four foreign mutual
funds of $224 million. He also
is charged with making a secret
$200,000 cash gift to President
Nixon's 1972 campaign.
Assistant judge Lucio
Somoza said federal judge Luis
Rodriguez ruled on Oct. 22
that there would be no cause
for extraditing Vesco.
Rodriguez turned down a
second request from Vesco
that he be ruled exempt from
arrest, Somoza said. The
motion was denied on grounds
there was no arrest order.
Vesco was indicted in
connection with an illegal
contribution to President
Nixon's re-election campaign
and is wanted for alleged fraud
in New Jersey.
He did not personally appear
in court, officials said, but his
lawyers presented a summary
of the Watergate proceedings in
English and Spanish, hundreds
of pages in length, as
background to the case.
The judge's order also applied
to Ulrico Strickler Schurter,
who sought the action with
Vesco.
Vesco and a large party flew
into Buenos Aires via
Asuncion, Paraguay, in the
financier's private blue and
white Boeing 707 jet,
well-informed sources said. He
spent several days here under
protective guard and in
complete secrecy.
Sources said he had made an
earlier trip in May.
This time Jose Marti
Figures, son of Costa Rican
President Jose Figueres, flew
here for 24 hours to help the
case, sources said.
The only official
government comment has been
a statement from the interior
ministry that Vesco did not
meet with interior minister
Benito Llambi, but that did
not rule out other contacts.
Court records showed Vesco
was given a visa by the General
Director of Migrations, under
resolution No. 11,846, Somoza
said.


Defence allege key

tw ess b u t iM URity 0 E SAYS


1 by talking on Vesco
a By MIKE LOTHIAN
DEFENCE ATTORNEYS on Monday resumed a three-point
assault on the U.S. Government's bid for the extradition of
financier Robert L. Vesco to face a $50,000 fraud charge in New


York.
The Vesco lawyers attacked
the credibility of a key
prosecution witness, Laurence
B. Richardson, by charging
that he was granted personal
immunity against prosecution
on a criminal charge in return
for his testimony against
Vesco.
The defence pressed the
assertion that the American
fraud charge against Vesco has
no parallel in Bahamian law
and is therefore non-extra-
ditable.
And they again raised the
point that if Vesco is
extradited he might be tried
for more than just the one
alleged fraud.
The defence moves came as
counsel Eugene Dupuch, Q.C.,
continued his cross-exami-
nation of John A. Lowe,
Assistant U.S. Attorney in the
Southern District of New
York, who was called to the
witness stand by Magistrate
Emmanuel Osadebay late
Friday morning to give expert
testimony on U.S. law.
Lowe has already gone
through more than two hours
of close cross-examination on
Friday, another two
hours Monday morning, and
was to return to the box for
further questioning when the
hearings resumed at 2:30
today.
Lowe admitted yesterday
that it was he who drafted an
affidavit which was signed by
Richardson, former president
of International Controls
Corporation, and submitted to
Mr. Osadebay as evidence to
support the allegation that
Vesco defrauded ICC of
$50,000 in January last year.
INADMISSIBLE
Major sections of the
Richardson affidavit was struck
out by Mr. Osadebay last week
on grounds that the
portions were hearsay evidence
and inadmissible.
When Lowe confirmed that
Richardson testified also
before the Federal Grand Jury
which in May indicted former
U.S. Attorney General John
Mitchell and former U.S.
Commerce Secretary Maurice
Stans for alleged conspiracy
and obstruction of justice, Mr.
Dupuch shot the question:
"Why didn't they indict
Richardson?"
Patrick Toothe, who is
appearing with Cecil V. Wallace
Whitfield for the U.S.
Government, objected to the
question.
Mr. Dupuch explained that
"I hope to prove through this
witness that Mr. Richardson is
alleged to have physically
handed $100,000 to the
Committee to re-elect the
President. We are suggesting,
briefly, that Richardson was
bought off to testify against
Vesco."
The accusation came as
another factor in the defence's
allegation that the application
for Vesco's extradition is
"politically motivated."
NOT PROPER
But Mr. Toothe protested
that "this has nothing to do
with these proceedings," and
Mr. Osadebay ruled that "it
would not be proper to attack
Richardson's credibility
through Lowe. I don't think
the question would be proper."
Taking up the question of
U.S. law, Mr. Dupuch
yesterday also won from Lowe
the admission that under
Federal law in the U.S., a
defendant cannot be convicted
of fraud unless inter-state or
international communications
are used in furtherance of the
fraud.


$9,000 taken from Barclays
POLICE confirmed today The Bank at Oakes Field was

from tellers' drawers and a It was the third bank
further $600 from a deposit hold-up in the past month and
bag from one of the customers, the sixth in four months.


He had conceded on Friday
that the use of communica-
tions facilities, which gives the
Federal authorities jurisdiction,
is an "essential" element in the
charge.
The defence is expected to
argue that there is no
requirement for the use of
communications under
Bahamian fraud laws, while the
extradition treaty stipulates
that the laws of the two
countries involved must be
"substantially similar."
There was considerable
argument between Lowe and
defence counsel over the fact
that the indictment against
Vesco charges that he violated
both section 1343 of the U.S.
Code (fraud) and section two
(aiding and abetting).
Lowe maintained that
despite the inclusion of section
two in the indictment, Vesco
faced only a "one-count"
indictment. He pointed out
that under American law aiding
and abetting an offence does
not add to the guilt of the
defendant, and aiding and
abetting brings the same
punishment as for committing
the actual offence.
He said the aiding and
abetting section was included
in the indictment because the
relevant section refers .o
"whoever aids, abets, counsels,
commands ...," and Vesco is
alleged to have ordered an ICC
employee to send a wire
transferring $50,000 of ICC
funds to C. Henry Buhl III.
Mr. Dupuch said he was
pressing the point because
under Bahamian law a person
charged with aiding and
abetting is accused of helping a
principal offender in the
commission of an offence. He
said under Bahamian law a
person could not be charged
both with the offence and with
aiding and abetting the
offence.
OBJECTION
Mr. Osadebay interjected
that he wanted the matter
clarified because "I don't want
to send the man back for fraud
and then have them charge him
also with aiding and abetting."
Mr. Toothe again objected
when Mr. Dupuch began to ask
Lowe if he was prepared to
drop the charge of aiding and
abetting.
When Mr. Toothe pointed
out that Lowe was called only
for expert testimony on U.S.
law, Mr. Dupuch countered
with the observation that Lowe
was also a representative of the
U.S. Government and was
closely involved in the whole
matter.
But Mr. Toothe pressed his
objection and then, with Mr.
Dupuch's agreement, obtained
a ten-minute adjournment.
When Lowe returned to the
witness box Mr. Dupuch took a
different line of questioning.
Earlier on Monday the
question of what charges Vesco
would face if he is returned to
the U.S. came up in connection
with an article in Sunday's
Miami Herald.
'SCURRILOUS'
Mr. DupUch, who blasted
the article as "a scurrilous
attack on the government, this
country and the entire system
of justice in this country and as
suggesting the courts were
"subject to executive
pressure," nevertheless used a
quote from the article to back
his assertion that the U.S. may
try Vesco for more than fraud.
He said the Herald story
quoted U.S. Justice
Department official John
Murphy as saying the U.S.
wanted Vesco to face "fraud
and conspiracy charges."
"He is saying, in effect," Mr.
Dupuch declared, "that he will
pay absolutely no attention to
the treaty between the two
countries."
The treaty provides that an
extradited fugitive can be tried
only on the charge for which
he is extradited.


PRINCIPAL
ByNiki Kely
AN ALLEGATION sy
Aquinas College parents that
students were sent home
yesterday for non-payment of
fees was denied this morning
by principal Andrew Curry.
Contacted by the Tribune
following a number of phone
calls from parents, Mr. Curry
said the whole student body
was given a half-day holiday
after the school's flag-raising
ceremony.
He acknowledged, however,
that students were again
reminded that many had not
paid their tuition fees for the
second term by the date
prescribed in a circular letter to
parents on August 1.
Callers to The Tribune
claimed parents were being
required to pay for the new
term in the current semester.
"This is a procedure we have
been following for three years
and parents were given notice
well in advance of the dates
when fees were payable.
"A second notice went out
two weeks ago," Mr. Curry
said.
He said that on August I a
notice was circulated to all
parents advising them of the
opening, closing, vacation and
holiday dates for Aquinas.
FEES HIKED
In addition parents were
served notice that tuition fees
were being raised from $15 to
$100 per term from September
or $300 annually.
Dates given said these f'ws
were to be paid between
August 2 7 and 29 for the first
term; by November 12 for the
second term and by February
25 for the third term.
The tuition deposit for the
1974-1975 academic year was
to be paid between April 2 and
April 5.
Also listed were additional
charges ranging from $5 to $10
for certain subjects to cover
cost of extra charges.
Mr. Curry said that second
notice of the November 12
deadline for second term fees
was given to parents two weeks
ago and this deadline was in
fact extended to November 19.
DELINQUENT
Pointing to certain student
files, he indicated the extent to
which some parents were
delinquent in paying fees.'
Nevertheless the students
were still in school.
"All we are asking is that
parents show some sense of
responsibility in this matter,"
Mr. Curry said.
"We are always prepared to
give consideration to students
whose parents find it
financially difficult to make
payments when due, but these
parents should come and make
their case known."
Mr. Curry said he could not
recall one instance when a
parent or guardian had come in
asking for help that he was not
given assistance.
Aquinas maintains 8 to 10
service scholarships for
students unable to meet fees.
These children perform
clean-up functions in the
principal's office and staff roon
in exchange for tuition.
"We do this even though
we maintain a full-time janitor
because it gives students a
sense of dignity to know they
are performing a job in
exchange for the grant."

Strikes and oil cut back


add to Britain's misery


LONDON Britain's
Conservative government,
struggling with a host of
industrial and oil troubles that
plunged the nation into a state
of emergency, fought off a
full-scale censure motion in the
House of Commons last night.
The motion by Harold
Wilson's opposition Labour
Party, condemning Prime
Minister Edward Hleath's
management of the economy,
was defeated 304-286.
The six-hour Commons
debate ended in uproar with
Chancellor of the Exchequer
Anthony Barber denouncing
the Labourites as "seeking to
gain political advantage out of
the nation's difficulties."
The House met against the
background of a wildcat strike

expedition hunting the Loch

"We are very disappointed,"
a spokesman for the 16-man
expedition said. "But we shall
be back early next spring to try

As an estimated 150,000
commuters struggled home
through the chilly, dim-lit,
traffic-snarled streets of the
capital, the government
ordered an immediate 10 per

products.
The purpose was to head off
a breakdown of production
throughout the country as a
result of labour unrest and the
slowdown of Arab oil output.

Wilson cited Britain's
October trade deficit of $700
million and an increase of the
banks' prime lending rate to 13
per cent as the real reason for
the nation's emergency not,
as the government insisted, an
overtime ban by 270,000
coalminers.
Would Heath proclaim an
emergency, he asked, if
speculators, financiers and
tax-dodgers banned overtime?
In his own bitter
counterblast Heath insisted the
government measures derived
from the problems of
economic success, not failure.
Britain was on the move, he
said. Output in 1973 was 10
per cent up on last year.
Unemployment was going
down.
And the Prime Minister
quoted forecasts suggesting
Britain in 1974 would have the
highest investment rate
recorded for more than a
decade.(AP).


The bill authorizes, but does
not require, rationing. The
house cannot take the bill up
until at least Nov. 26, the day
it returns from its thanksgiving
recess.
The Senate deleted a
provision to tap the nation's
naval petroleum reserves but
rejected most other
amendments.
Another amendment
adopted would permit


Congress to terminate the
emergency after six months, if
it decides it is no longer needed
after receiving an interim
report from the President.

The bill would require the
President to set up a system of
fuel rationing within 15 days
though it would be up to him
when or whether; to puit into
effect. Nixon has said he hopes
to avoid rationing. (AP).

-A royal

peep

at Anne's

presents
LONDON Princess
Anne's wedding presents
went on display in St. James
Palace this week, with one
exception: a horse.
There were 17 pale blue
garters in fur, lace, satin, net
and ribbon.
There was vanilla toffee
candy from Carol Fowler and
Susan Theobald, catalogue
No. 214.
And there was gift No.
1001, a set of silver goblets.
But No. 1074 was missing.
"That is the gift of Mr. and
Mrs. Banks," explained a
liveried official, providing a
splash of colour in a roomful
of silver.
"A three-year-old chestnut
gelding. Not the thing for the
,carpets."
The Chestnut was the only
omission from a dazzling
array of 2,000 gifts open to
the public at 30 pence, or 72
cents, a head and comprising
everything a happy couple
and their horse could want,
from diamonds to dishcloths.
Proceeds of the exhibition
go the charity.
Queen Elizabeth gave her
daughter diamond earrings
and a magnificently modern
gold stalactite brooch set
with diamonds. For Anne's
husband, Capt. Mark Phillips,
there was a gold pocket
watch and gold and enamel
doorbell buttons.
A Mrs. Phillips, not Mark's
mother, and a Mrs. Bent sent
nine handmade dishcloths.
Some gift-givers preferred
anonymity and did not give
addresses.
Saddles, horse blankets and
riding gear were there in
profusion, along with water
colours, oils and etchings of
every horse in the equine
who's who.
There were egg cups,
drinking bowls and crystal in
every size and shape.
And there were books by
the dozen for the Princess
who told a television
interviewer she reads only on
long journeys.
For the young
sportswoman Anne there was
the "ABC of fox hunting."
For the daughter who
would like to know her
parents better there was
"Elizabeth and Phillip," by
Louis Wulff. And for the new
young wife there was a
cautionary tale, "Dido and
Aeneas." (AP)


Plumbers patch Skylab


HOUSTON A space
plumbing job has increased
chances the Skylab 3
astronauts will be able to
complete a full 84-day orbital
mission, space agency officials
say.
Astronaut William Pogue
replenished liquid that had
leaked out of a refrigeration
loop. The system keeps
batteries and electronic
equipment from burning out.
It became inoperable during
the Skylab 2 mission in August
and the crew switched to a
backup loop. The secondary
system also has a small leak
and might also have given out
within a few weeks.
Loss of both cooling loops
would result in early
termination of the mission,
said flight director Neil
Hutchinson.
Skylab 3 astronauts Gerald
Carr, Edward Gibson and
Pogue carried repair kit and
extra cooling fluid when they
rocketed up to the orbiting
laboratory last Friday.
The three astronauts today
planned to complete


reactivation of the laboratory
and to conduct a series of
medical experiments.
Meanwhile, in Star City,
U.S.S.R. U.S. and Soviet crews
have begun training to link up
their Apollo and Soyuz
spacecrafts in orbit in July
1975K.
The American Apollo
spacecraft crewed by Thomas
Stafford, Donald Slayton and
Vance Brand will dock with a
Russian Soyuz carrying Alexei
Leonov and Valery Kubasov.
As part of the training, nine
American astronauts and eight
Russians are taking language
lessons so they won't have to
reach for the dictionary if
there's a problem in space.
At the present state of their
linguistic art, everybody hopes
they have a smooth flight.
Returning the Russian visit

Americans were at Star City,

A RED CROSS plane that was supposed to bring Israeli POWs
from Cairo to Tel Aviv landed as scheduled today but without the

The plane was to have brought another 20 Israeli POWs home
from Cairo as part of the 'six-point plan signed by Egypt and
Israel under the U.N. ceasefire agreement that ended the October


war.


Soldiers


hit by


gunmen

BELFAST Guerilla
gunmen and British troops
clashed in Northern Ireland
today as political moves to end
the province's bitter feud
between the Roman Catholics
and the majority Protestants
reached a showdown.
A gunman hit two soldiers in
a mobile patrol in the Creggan
district of Londonderry,
Northern Ireland's second city
during the night. The army said
neither of the men was badly
wounded.
The patrol fired back and
troops later arrested an
undisclosed number of men
and found a carbine rifle, an
armalite high velocity rifle and
17 rounds of ammunition in a
car.
Earlier, security forces used
nausea gas to disperse young
rioters in the district. Trouble
erupted when troops searched
a house and found 862 rounds
of ammunition.
Meanwhile, the province's
former Prime Minister Brian
Faulkner faced a critical
struggle in his bid to persuade
the hawks of his
Protestant-based Unionist
Party to share power with the
Catholics a move intended to
end Northern Ireland's four
years of sectarian strife that
has brought at least 907
dead.(AP).


The captain of the aircraft
was quoted by the radio as
saying the reasons for the
empty plane were "technical,"
and after waiting at Cairo
airport for two hours he had
been told by the Egyptian Red
Cross to fly io Tel Aviv
without his passengers. A;
A Red Cross official in TIel
Aviv said he had been informed
by Cairo via his office in
Geneva that the prisoners were
to arrive later.
So far Israel has received
162 of its 247 soldiers
captured by Egypt in the war
and has repatriated more than
6,500 Egyptian prisoners.
Israeli Commerce Secretary
Haim Bar-Lev said Israeli
industrial manpower is down
20 per cent in the wake of the
war. Bar-Lev told a special
session of the Israel
management centre in Tel Aviv
that immigration and the
return of Arab workers from
occupied territories would not
relieve the labour shortage.
A Commerce Ministry
spokesman said 80,000 of
Israel's 295,000 industrial
labourers were still on full-time
reserve duty in the army.
In Washington, Argiculture
Secretary Earl L. Butz told a

U.S. farm product shipments
to the Middle East in
retaliation for the Arab oil
embargo would simply irritate
the situation without putting

No significant incidents were
reported anywhere in the
country. Martial law remained
a deterrent to further trouble.
Showing confidence that the
situation was firmly in control,
the government permitted
Athens' public schools to
resume afternoon sessions, and
shortened the curfew in the
capital by three hours.
It will begin at 220C and end
at 0500. It was expected to be
shortened again tomorrow.
However, army tanks
remained in the capital, and
soldiers patrolled the city
where most of the
a nti go vernment
demonstrations had taken
place since Friday.
Athens university was
heavily guarded, and youths,
mostly men, in the area were
stopped for identity checks.
Several were taken into
custody for further questioning
by police.
Premier Spyros Markezinis
moved to restore normal life,
disrupted by street rioting and
a four-day student sit-in.
He met with President
George Papadopoulos and later
with armed forces leaders. No
details of their discussions were
made known.
Censorship remained on the
Greek press. One english
language daily refused to come
out after the government
objected to a photo of a tank
in the streets of Athens printed
.on the papers's front page.


With four men on each raft,
they said they braved weather
that included 80 m.p.h. storms.
The crews said they
conserved water by rationing
themselves to two cups of
coffee a day each. They said
they were out of fresh food
and lived mainly off fish. They
were eating raw fish when the
navy met them off the coast.
They said they would
consult the expedition leader,
Vi Al Alsar, a 40-year-old
Spaniard, before deciding
future plans.
It was t-isar's third
successful raft voyage across
the ocean. Three years ago he
and three companions did it in
161 days.
This time, Alsar's raft was
let adrift when the navy
stepped in, as its lashed balta

BRISBANE The
Transatlantic drift of three
balsa wood rafts which left
Ecuador in May ended in a
blend of triumph and
heartbreak today.
Within sight of the goal of
their 8,500-mile voyage across
the South Pacific, the crew of
12, including three Americans,
had to seek help. One of the
rafts had to be abandoned and
left adrift.
Its crew was picked up by an
Australian navy landing craft,
which also shepherded the two
other rafts to safety.
The rafts had made it to
within 50 miles of their
destination when they called
for help yesterday after getting
caught in the Humboldt
current which threatened to
take them out to sea again.
While one raft remained
adrift, two rafts berthed safely
at Ballina and crew members
told newsmen of their 175-day
drift.

Tuesday, November 20, 1973


By ETIENNE DUPUCH
GRAND CAYMAN, October 29 My wife and I visited this
island for the first time on July 18th.
I then wrote a series of articles about the things we saw and did
here. They were all favourable, so much so that many of my
readers asked me whether I really liked the island.
I have told everybody who has asked this question that I do
but that they would not necessarily like it too. It all depends on
the individual's temperament ... and the things in life he prizes
most.
A friend of mine, who had visited this island, told me that he
didn't find it physically attractive.
I agreed with him. The island is experiencing a boom for the
first time in its history and so very little has been done so far
beyond spending money lavishly on creating a new and impressive
Parliament building, a Supreme Court building and now a new
police station is in course of construction.
Before these changes these public services were performed in
tiny, unimpressive buildings. A post card of the police station, for
example, shows a small wooden structure with four uniformed
men standing in front of it ... one with a motorcycle, which is
something new to this department and is a part of the new face
lift being given the island by an invasion of tourists and foreign
investment.
The post office and airport are still in use and they are of a
standard that might be found in an Out Island in the Bahamas
today ... or even in Nassau before the bootleg boom hit the
Bahamas way back in 1919.
Until a few years ago the small post office building, built in
1939, accommodated all public offices except the Governor's
office.


The people's reaction to prosperity here has been the same as
in Nassau in 1919.
You will remember that in one of my articles recently I
recalled how the Hon. J. R. C. Young stood on tlhe floor of the
House in 1919 and urged members to invest the money that was
pouring into the Treasury from the bootleg boom and wait for
undertaking new public works until they had accumulated
enough capital to be able to carry out new construction with
income from their investments.
But they couldn't wait. This money was burning in their
pockets. They wanted action ... not next year or the year after
but NOW.
As far as I can remember one of the first if not the first
undertakings was the construction of a new Law Courts building
and Guard Room in the Public Square.
Up to this time the Supreme Court was held on the lower floor
in the eastern half of the Public Building where the Senate still
meets. The bottom floor on the western side was occupied by the
Post Office ... all of the Post Office, including the Savings Bank.
On the upper floor of this building ... the Legislative Council
(now Senate) held its meetings where the Senate still sits, but the
eastern half ... now used as committee rooms by the Senate ...
was occupied by the Public Works department, the Crown Lands
office and a third office which I can't remember at the present
time. It was possibly the Registry.
The Magistrate's Court sat in an old ramshackled building on
the site on which the new court building was erected and still
stands. In this old building was also an office for the Agriculture
and Marine Products Board. The late H. C. Christie, Poet Laureate
of the Bahamas and father of the late Sir Harold Christie, was
then Secretary to the Board.

There are two other substantial old buildings in this Square.
The western building was and still is used as the House of
Assembly. But then the House used only a part of the upper
Sloor. The two small rooms on the upper floor now used as a
robing room by the Speaker and a sitting room by members
during a meeting of the House provided accommodation for
public offices of some kind. The Chief Justice may have occupied
-one of these rooms.
A part of the lower floor now used as committee meeting
-ooms by the House provided accommodation for the Attorney
'General and the northern half was used by the Development
!Board.
On the upper floor of the eastern building was the office of the
-Colonial Secretary, then the Chief Executive Officer of the
-government, centre for the entire business of the colony.
- In a small room on the lower floor of this building was the
-Public Treasury. There was also the office of the Commissioner of
-Currency and a room for public documents. The Customs
-department was located on the upper floor of a shacky old
building on Rawson Square where the Churchill building now
-stands.

Ronald Young gave members of the House good advice the
flight he urged them to delay any major expenditure on public
Works until the Treasury was in a sound condition.
But they couldn't wait. They had found a money tree and
etched to shake off the gaudy baubles that hung from every limb.
.; But this was not an inexhaustible oil well in Saudi Arabia. It
"sas something that was here today and might be gone tomorrow.
-And so, when the bootleg boom stopped as suddenly as it had
started. the colony was in debt ... and men gladly worked for a
shilling a day in order to keep body and soul together.
TFortunately the men in public life at the time were remarkably
resourceful and ... clearly out of their imagination they built a
Plew financial structure that amazed the whole world.
; When the present government took over the Treasury, they too
)vent on a spending spree but they lack the imagination and
capacity for building an economy. They have drained the
resources they found at their command and plunged the islands
Into a hopeless financial situation from which they may never
recover.

But let us get back to the main discussion ... human attitudes
In the Caymans today, where the reaction to sudden wealth is the
name as I witnessed in Nassau 54 years ago.


Worker asks Minister for justice


EDITOR THE TRIBUNE,
Please allow me space in
your news paper to say a few
words. In a ZNS broadcast the
Minister of Labour said that it
is unlawful to strike without
consulting the government.
Again where is the working
people's protection? Is he only
thinking about his job? Mr.
Clifford Darling was a key
member of the 19-day strike in
1958, or has he forgotten?
Shall the people who work
in these hotels work for work's
sake? They have a set wage set
many years ago.
The Minister knows quite
well many hotels don't
encourage guests to tip and
today they have staff watched
like prisoners. There are no
privileges in hotels today for
staff working for $6 per day,
together with bad food and
insults from higher ups.
Food is up, rent, water and
light rates are up. What does
the Minister expect? Can he
live on $40 a week, sometimes
only $20.
The hotels never reduce
their room rates, food rate or
even berverage rate -- they keep
going. And if you are late for
work your salary is cut.
Mr. Darling look from
whence you came. Some of
you seem to forget you were
once one of these workers who
were glad when others saw the
chance to better the conditions
and willingly ate corned beef
and peas and rice for 19 days
and 19 nights because of our
just cause.
Don't say what will happen


to one because he or she goes
on a strike for a little more
money to buy bread so that
their families can live decently.
What you know -- and I
think you have forgotten is
that paying for a jitney to
work and back home is
expensive. People today are
working many hours at the
same pay rate. And at some
hotels there is no overtime.
Look at the condition of the
food served in some of the
hotels to the staff, it is really
disgraceful and sometimes, in
my opinion, not fit for human
beings. Remember Mr.
Minister human beings are
your brothers and sisters who
work in these hotels.
Imagine going into the City
Meat Market with a day's pay
to prepare food for a family of
five: to begin with you must
take the $6 or $8 and begin to
shop 1 lb of chopsS 1.35.one
can of lard $1.10, five lbs of
rice $1.95 or 2 lbs of rice 80
cents. How can people make
it?
One woman was fired by
one hotel for taking home four
slices of bread she left from her
lunch for her five children. She
had no husband, he had died.
And if she doesn't work there
are some who would call her
lazy.
I believe something must be
done on the time period of 60
days before you can legally
strike. The season is only 60
days. I would say you had


Mrs. Charles Munro dies


MRS. CHARLES A. Munroe
of Munroe House, West Bay
Street, died Saturday,
November 17, at Doctor's
Hospital in New York City
after a brief illness.
She was born Ann
Swinburne Ditchburn in
Eugene. Oregon, on April 5,
1886, the daughter of John
Ditchburn and Ida Ray
Thatcher, both of Eugene,
Oregon.
At age 18 she went east to
New York City where, after
three years she became a
leading star of Light Opera
Theatre where she performed
as a lead soprano to great
critical acclaim in Robinhood,
Madcap Duchess and The
Count of Luxembourg, among
other productions.
Her first marriage was in
1917 to Rudolph E. Schirmer,
the chairman of the
well-known Musical Publishing
Company. G. Schirmer Inc..
until his death in 1919. Her
second marriage was in 1923 to


J. Philip Benkard. a Ne.- York
stock broker, with whom she
lived in New York and Tuxedo
Park until his death in 1929.
Her third marriage was to
Charles A. Munroe of Nassau,
Bahamas which lasted for nine
years until his death in 1957.
Mrs. Munroe played an
important part in New York
City's musical life from the
date of her marriage to
Rudolph F. Schirmer until her
resignation from the board of
directors of G, Schirmer Inc. in
1964. She played a leading role
in bringing to Schirmer and
encouraging there such young
composers as Samuel Barber
and Gian Carlo Menotti.
Since 1955, she has resided
in Nassau visiting New York
City occasionally and also
travelling abroad particularly
to the music festivals in
Salzburg and Bayreuth.
Mrs. Munroe leaves two
sons: Rudolph E. Schirmer and
J. Philip Benkard and three
grand children.


It is hoped that ... like in Nassau ... these people will learn to
sort out their priorities and someone will rise up in the
community to beautify the island ... make the people conscious
of the importance of their gardens and public parks, as the late
Sir Kenneth Solomon did for Nassau with a campaign of
beautification he launched over 40 years ago. When that happens
... this island will be beautiful too.
At the present time the mental attitude of the people is still
wholesome and it remains to be seen whether, with the impact of
prosperity, time and events will destroy the minds of the people
in this island as it has done in the Bahamas where our fine people
have fallen victim of vicious propaganda in the hands of
inexperienced, incompetent, sell-seeking politicians.

As I said earlier in this article ... I just happen to like people. I
find happiness among friendly people.
This something that many Bahamians and others too do
not seem to understand. They keep on asking me how I can be so
happy among strangers. There are no strangers in my life. No man
who shows goodwill and appreciation is a stranger to me.
Friendship is something that should not be taken for granted ... it
is a human relationship that should be lived and kept flaming
bright by a constant demonstration of goodwill.
Wherever I find this human attitude ... that place is home for
me.

FOOTNOTE TO HISTORY: I forgot to mention in the body of
this article the fate of a tree that became a sacrifice on the altar
of material progress.
A silk cotton tree the finest tree in all the Bahamas. and the
finest silk cotton specimen I have seen anywhere in the world
stood in the square between the Senate chamber and the Law
Courts building.
This tree was old beyond human memory. Men who were old
when I was a child said it stood there in its single magnificence
when they too were children. And so no one could estimate its
age.
Its roots were so massive that a man could shelter in them from
a storm.
It was one of the main attractions for visitors to the island and
the subject of a best-selling post card.
Soon after the Law Courts building was completed this ancient
giant began to wither.
Its root structure had been damaged in laying the foundations
of the court building.
Tree surgeons were brought from abroad in an effort to save
this magnificent tree. Rotting limbs were lopped off. Gaping
holes in the trunk were cleansed of rotting sections and packed
with cement.
Inch by inch this beautiful tree died until it became a menace
to the public ... and then one day the men who had built the Law
Courts structure of stone and mortar had to lay the axe to this
rare creation of nature.
This was considered progress in the first flush of prosperity
in a formerly impoverished island.

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY
If a man be gracious and courteous to strangers, it shows he is a
citizen of the world: BACON

There are times when the
government don't open their
ears to the real issues of the
people and this is the time for
government to open an ear.
Prices going up and wages the
same as they were some six
years ago. These people are
asking for help.
What would you have done
Mr. Darling? Imagine working
yourself just three days a week.
The government has made
some progress, but yet in this
issue for the poorer Bahamains
there is lack of support from
government on price control
and better wages. When prices
go up then you need to bring
wages up.
I say to you if you want
happy people on a job then
pay them what they deserve.
Ease the pressure. In the hotels
a man works 6 days for $35
Tell the public how far he can
survive on this. You have to try
and survive if you can....and
may God help you!
Mr. Darling. I believe you
are there to serve and to see
that justice is done. Do you
call this justice? Are you too
big that you deny the unions --
you. a former president of the
Bahamas Taxicab Union who
stood on a platform and
shouted bread, justice and
freedom.
Is there any balm in Gilead
fur the oppressed'? Are you
there to freeze wages'? It you
are there for that purpose then
I believe you don't need the
people or the people have no
need for yvu. I don't think yoi

Remarry and don't


worry about the kids

By Abigail Van Buren
a Im Ir Cineu Trime-N. Y. News sm., iWe.
DEAR ABBY: Do you think an 80-year-old man is
foolish to consider remarriage? Some of my children do. I
am a widower who has been alone for 12 years, during
which time I have been in the company of some lovely
eligible women. But I never have wanted to marry until I
met My Fair Lady. She is 65 and has been a widow for 10
years.
We are both in reasonably good health, and we would
like to spend the rest of our lives together, making each
other happy. All our children are married. Some approve of
our plans to marry; some do not.
I own my own home and have a little money. In view
of the mixed feelings of our children, should we sneak off
and get married by a preacher with just a few friends as
witnesses? Or should we have a small church wedding,
invite all the children, and let those who want to, come, and
those who don't, stay home? YOUNG AT HEART
DEAR YOUNG: Why sneak? Do whatever pleases you
and your Fair Lady. The last thing you should worry about
Is what your children think.

DEAR ABBY: My girl friend and I are both 17. When
Lydia does something to displease her parents, they make
her stand in a corner.
A couple of times when I've come to take her out on a
date, her father has said: "Lydia can leave in about 10
minutes-after she's thru standing in the corner." So I just
sit and cool my heels while Lydia stands in the corner with
her face to the wall.
I think this is a ridiculous way to punish a 17-year-old
girl, but of course it's not my place to butt in.
Are you familiar with this stupid punishment? And if so,
what's the reason for it? And what do you think of using it
on a 17-year-old? FEELING WEIRD IN MD.
DEAR WEIRD: Yes, I'm familiar with it. It's a very
effective way to make a child settle down and reflect on
the reason he's being punished. But to use it on a girl of
dating age, in the presence of her date, I think is cruel and
unusual punishment.

DEAR ABBY: Our church recently installed a set of
"chimes"-a large tape player and four huge speakers,
mounted on top of the church. The music is all hymns,
played on an organ with loud bells. They play it at least
once a day from 15 to 45 minutes, and sometimes it's
played three times a day.
This can be heard all over town, and people who live
four miles from town say they are disturbed by it, too.
I live near the church, and this is pretty hard to take.
It's impossible to carry on a conversation [in our house,
mind you], and this music is too loud to be considered
pretty.
I think church music belongs IN church. If teen-agers
played their rock music this loud at a party, the police
would break up the party and charge the kids with disturb-
ing the peace.
This is a small town. My peace is disturbed. I am a
tax-paying senior citizen who has asked the pastor of the
church to please tone the music down. He did for a while.
Now it's as loud as ever. Maybe if you print this, it will
help. SMALL TOWN
DEAR SMALL TOWN: I hope so. I nearly got a head-
ache reading your letter.

CONFIDENTIAL TO "HURT" IN ESSEX JUNCTION,
VT.: Heed the wise words of Noah Webster: "By taking
revenge, a man is even with his enemy, but by passing it
over, he is superior." Now is your opportunity to be superi-
or.
Problems? You'll feel better if yo geitit off yer chest.
For a persMnal reply, write to ABBY: Box No. 67M, L.A.,
Calif. 606. Enclose stamped, uef-addrehed envelope.

For Abby's booklet, "How to Have a Lovely Weddlag,"

the Thanksgiving Service


PAN AMERICAN World
Airways today asked the Civil
Aeronautics Board for
"emergency authorization" to
discuss worldwide flight
reductions with "all other"
U.S. and foreign-flag scheduled
carriers as a result of the fuel
shortage.
Pan Am asked that it be
allowed to discuss "schedule
adjustments. capacity
limitations pooling of revenues
and operations, and other
cooperative arrangements."
Pan Am said that within the
past week it has been advised
by two major oil companies.
who together supply almost 50
percent of its total fuel
supplies, of impending
"massive shortfalls" below the
contracted levels of fuel to be
supplied to the airline.
The shortfalls will be on the
order of 25 percent in
November and may
"deteriorate substantially" in
succeding months.
The immediate shortages
will occur not only in the
supplies of fuel which it

purchases in the U.S. "in
bond" for use in international
operations but in fuel
purchased abroad as well, Pan
Am told the CAB.
A spokesman added that
other international carries will
inevitably face similar
shortages.
Approximately 41 percent
of the fuel used by Pan Am is
purchased from bonded fuel
supplies in the U.S. About six
percent of the carrier's fuel is
drawn from unbonded
domestic fuel supplies, with
the remaining 53 percent
purchased overseas.
Pan Am said that in addition
to the shortages of bonded
fuel the six percent of
domestic fuel used by the
airline will also be cut under
the mandatory fuel allocation
regulations adopted by the
energy policy office. "It is
equally apparent that shortages
are going to occur in the very
near future with respect to the
53 percent of Pan Am's fuel
supplies that is purchased at
foreign points."

Tourism helps


peace,



says Maynard


Engineers get the jet J


A SELECT group of 1 1
members of Bahamasair's
engineering staff is mid-way
through a comprehensive
turbine engine and aircraft
course combining daily
classroom sessions with
on-the-job training under the
direction of imported
technicians, said Mr. Max
Healey, the flag carrier's
general manager and chief
executive officer.
The course, concentrating
on the Rolls-Royce "Spey"
engine and BAC 1-11 jet


utilized in the airline's
operations to Freeport and
Miami, is the first of its kind
ever to be offered here.
Each student engineer, in
addition to attending lectures
and on job performance, must
do home study from a
690-page manual covering all
phases of aircraft maintenance,
with emphasis on the various
systems, such as hydraulics,
fuel, oxygen, electrical and
electronic.

classroom to supplement the

The course, extending over a
6-week period, will be
concluded early next month
and then will be repeated
shortly after the New Year for
a second group of eleven men.
It is expected that this
training will produce a number
of candidates to qualify for
licences issued by the
respective Bahamain
Authority, tne Civil Aviation
Department.

And her parents, Mr. and
Mrs. Jack Abouzeide, of
Freeport, have sent their
thanks to the Heart
Foundation and Dr. Maunde
Stevenson, of Princess
Margaret Hospital.
They have also thanked Dr.
James Jude, his assistant and
the staff at St. Francis
Hospital, Miami for helping
Heidi to live a normal life.


BAHAMAS TOURISM
MINISTER Mr. Clement
Maynard said the country was
aware that tourism meant more
than travel and relaxation.
Speaking at a press luncheon
hosted by the Bahama Islands
Tourist Office in Boston Mass.
Mr. Maynard described tourism
as "people getting to know
people, understanding their
needs, hopes and fears."
Mr. Maynard who is here to
w:nd up several weeks of
promoting the Bahamas as a
major resort destination in the
United States and Canada, said
tourism was the fastest way to
engender understanding and
peace.
"It is in this area that I feel
that the Bahamas has a real
contribution to make," the
minister said.

Lack of duly licensed
nationals has caused continued
reliance on expatriate staff in
the technical engineering
group.
The chief instructor
conducting the course is James
Quinzi of Allegheny Airlines.
Mr. Quinzi is a full time
member of the staff of the
airlines' training center at
greater Pittsburgh Airport.

Walkathon plea


ABOUT 25 friends of
Edward "Fats Domino" Hall
are looking for sponsors for a
walkathon on Saturday to help
raise funds to meet Mr. Hall's
medical expenses following a
serious cycle accident at


Spanish Wells on October 11.
Spearheading the effort are
Mrs. Freida Hall and her son
Philip, 19.
Mrs. Hall said the walkathon
will start at 9 a.m. from the
Eastern Parade, proceed west
to Blake Road, south to
Interfield Road, north over
Prospect Ridge to Bay Street
and east back to the parade
ground.
Mr. Hall's injuries have
required hospitalization in
Nassau and Miami, and surgery
was necessary. Several
organizations and individuals
have already made donations
to help pay for medical care,
but the family on Nov. 3
appealed for help in raising an
additional S4 000.

All change for Wallace and


MONTGOMERY Alabama
has changed since the day
almost a decade ago when
George C. Wallace began his
first term as governor with the
battle cry "segregation
forever."
Wallace has changed with it.
The significance may leave
an impact on the governor's
race next year and on the
presidential election in 1976.
Alabama now has black
mayors, black sheriffs, black
legislators, black county
officials. The mayors, along
with black city officials from
other southern states,
concluded a three-day
conference Sunday at Tuskegee
and Wallace was the speaker.
He was greeted cordially and
besieged afterward by
well-wishers and autograph
seekers.
Wallace, confined to a
wheelchair now by a would-be
assassin's bullets which left him
paralyzed in both legs, is all
but certain to seek re-election
for a third term as governor, a
.,goal no other man in Alabama
'has ever achieved.
His appearance at the
coronation of the University if
Alabama's black homecoming
queen, Terry Points, last
Friday and his speech to the
black mayors indicate clearly
that Wallace may make a
serious bid for the support of
Alabama's 300,000 or more
black voters.
His aides will say only that
the governor "wants all the
votes he can get." But they
agree that the backing of a
substantial number of black
voters in the Gubernatorial
primary next May could
strengthen his influence in the
national democratic party.
And that, of course, could
have a bearing on his role in
the Presidential election.
Wallace has told friends
privately he is confident he can
win the governor's race in 1974
anyway. If he makes an appeal
for black support, the logical
assumption then would be that
y he wants to get farther away
from his old racist image.
He will have opposition if he
runs next year. State Sen.
Eugene McLain, a wealthy
42-year-old attorney and real
Estate developer has
announced his candidacy and


has started campaigning. Another e

Goldstein hits back at the critics COLLEGIANS JINX STAYS ON


MANAGER Marty Goldstein today hit
back at critics who claimed Bahamas
middleweight Kid Barr was being
"exploited."
"We all know Kid Barr was not
overmatched nor is he being pushed too
soon," he said.
The controversy arose over Barr
fighting two bouts in Florida in two days.
He beat tough Joe Hooks in a fourth
round k )ck out last week bui himself
was stopped when he met Sam Nesmith
in Tampa two days later.
Mr. Goldstein said: "When we got to
Tampa the opponent for Sam Nesmith
was ill. Barr asked to substitute in a tour
rounder.
"We checked Nesmith's record since he
had a large reach and height advantage.
He had two previous pro flights.
"We figured, right a great warm-up for
Barr and more experience.
"Barr took round one with his great.


sharp straight jab. In round two they
were in a clinch. The referee broke the
fighters."
Barr. said Goldstein, was hit on the
break. "iHe doubled in pain and knelt on
one knee. The referee did not count.
Twenty-five seconds elapsed and the bell
rang.
"Barr although not composed fully was
out for round two. We saw that famous
left jab not being used so we signalled at
once for a halt to the fight to prevent Kid
getting hurt."
Mr. Goldstein said he had written to
the Tampa Boxing Commission
requesting a reverse decision.
"Gypsy Mike Whymns, Pat Curry,
veteran Solomon Motier and myself were
there. We all know Kid Barr was not
overmatched nor is being pushed too
soon.
Mr. Goldstein said a knock out barred
a fighter from returning to the ring within


72 hours. Otherwise

teams


take top spots


OFF ON a strong footing in
international competition, the
Bahamas Men National
Volleyball Squad took first
place honours Saturday during
the Fort Lauderdale
Invitational Volleyball
Tournament played in Florida.
In order to give everyone
full playing opportunity, the
Bahamas' 14-member squad
was divided into two teams and
the 'B' team in a command
performance captured first
place in their division,
undefeated in eight games.
The 'A' team. plagued by
Injuries dropped three of ten
games played for second place
next to Gainsvill Gators.
Both teams were off to fine
starts and the Bahamas' B
quickly won their first four
matches and held a first place
tie with the second place
Sarasota. They subsequently
went on to demolish Sarasota
15-12 and 15-3 and then coast
to an undefeated record with
victories over Lake Comio,
Patrick Air Force Base and the
Seminoles.
Team captain Ralph
Burrows with his power
services assisted by good
spiking from Freddie Mackey,
Arnold Ferguson and Mark
Clarke were mainly responsible
for the Bahamas' triumph.
Meanwhile, the 'A' division
team seemed well on the wayv
to their first tournament
victory when they suffered a
tremendous setback In a
defensive manoeuvre at the
net, Joseph Demeritte suffered
an ankle injury a torn
ligament in the left leg that
sidelined him for the remainder
of the tournament.
This happened in the second
game with Sarasota. the
Champions of previous


tournaments. The Bahamas had
won the first game 15-8 and
were ahead 5-2 when the
accident occurred.
This forced coach Caswell
Thompson to upset his line-up
by placing spiker Hubert
Williams in Demeritte's
position. With no other
substitutes available, the
Bahamas was then forced to
fight from a cramped
.formation.
Sarasota capitalised on the"
awkward situation of the
Bahamas' team and soon
equalized following some
well-placed services from
player/coach Mike Garvey.
Adding to the Bahamas'
problems, Leroy Fawkes, who
had been superb on attack,
aggravated an ankle injury in
another mishap. He recovered
but was never himself for the
remainder of the game neither
was the team which hung on
gamely but finally succumbed
to a 15-12 loss.
The other losses of the team
from the eventual tournament
winners Gainsville Gators. In a
highly controversial contest,
the Bahamas' team lost 15-7
and 1 5-1 1.

HONG KONG Top-seeded
Rod Laver of Australia
trounced Anand Amritraj, of
India. 6-3, 6-3 in the
semi-finals of the $25,000
viceroy tennis tournament.
In the other semi-final game,
unseeded Charles Pasarell of
the United States scored his
third straight upset today,
beating sixth-seeded Fred

again as soon as he wished.
"Ask the real fight fans at Miami
auditorium (venue of the Hooks fight) if
we were moving Barr too fast. We told
them how great the Kid was and what he
would do with Hooks. He followed
instructions and fought like the champion
he will soon be."
Barr, said Goldstein, is one of the
finest boxers he has managed. "He trains
hard is fearless, loves to fight and follows
instructions to the letter."
Mr. Goldstein also refuted a suggestion
that he did not take care of his boxers.
"We promised Kid a win over
Cleveland Williams would gain him a
month's stay as guest of Pat Curry in his
home where he would receive four weeks
solid advance training and conditioning ...
He worked out at Miami Beach 5th St.
Gym. We purchased the finest boxing
equipment and he sparred daily with all

COUGARS WITH 61-52 WIN


JOHN ARCHER'S Collegians have been a jinx to Becks Cougars
Juniors for the past two seasons and this year seems to be no
exception.


Last night, rookie Dereck
Vogt pumped in 22 points and
gave nine assists while skipper
Tyrone Hamilton captured 13
rebounds and added 16 points,
leading the determined
Collegians to a 61-52 win and
their second victory in as many
played.
"The first year the Cougars
dominated us, but since then
they haven't conquered us
yet," Archer pointed out. "It
seems as if when they meet us
they get timid."
In the closely contested
match, the Cougars held the
edge throughout three of the
four quarters. The final quarter
saw Vogt and Hamilton easily
penetrating the Cougars'
defence while moving the
Collegians to a five point lead
within three minutes of play.
Capitalizing on scoreless
turnovers and inaccurate
passes, the Collegians with a
little over one minute left to
play opened an II point lead
turning the game decisively in
their favour.
"Their defence is the worst I
have ever seen," said Cougars
coach Fred "Papa" Smith
following their first defeat in
two played. "The guys were
not covering on the press."
Smith was moreover
surprised at the way the


Collegians out rebounded
them. "They (Collegians) have
a tall team, but they are not
supposed to out rebound us
that bad." The Collegians out
rebounded the Cougars 68-39.
Smith however figured that
both teams were evenly
matched and the team with the
better night will most likely
win.
Guard Clifford Rahming
topped the Cougars with a
game high of 25 points going
10 for 28 from the field and
five for nine from the free
throw line. He picked off ten
rebounds. Tyrone Sawyer
scored II and Edmund Hunt
captured 10 rebounds.
Going into the first quarter,
the combination of Sawyer and
Rahming proved detramental
as the Cougars fought their
way to an early lead. The
Collegians however stuck close
and field goals by Vogt and
Gary Knowles moved them to
a 12-8 lead when Smith took a
time out.
Returning to the court, Jeff
Davis joined in the Cougars
attack bringing them to a two
point lead by the end of that
period. Fred was not quite
angry but. "let's get some life
in this game," he commanded.
Taking the lead 20-16, the
Cougars picked up the
Collegians one on one. This
forced the necessary turnovers.
But still, the Cougars on the
other hand were not utilizing


such gains.
Play-maker Vogt and
Hamilton again came to the
Collegians rescue and notched
a 22 all tie. The Cougars
however were strong in their
attack and the end of the
second quarter saw them ahead
28-27.
Seven unanswered points -
five from Sawyer and two from
Rahming -- lifted the Cougars
to a strong eight point lead
early in the third quarter. But
Vogt proved unstoppable and
five layups brought the
Collegians back into
contention although they
trailed 44-31.
It was not until the final
quarter that the Collegians
opened up and with Horace
Rolle getting into the picture,
the Collegians stormed to a
49-44 lead.
