Veso extradition case ends,



judgment on December 7


PROSECUTING COUNSEL
for the United States
Government, Cecil Wallace
Whitfield, this afternoon closed
the case against financier
Robert L. Vesco by pressing
xr his extradition on a
550,000 wire fraud charge.
Magistrate Emmanuel
Osadtebay, called upon by the
pro- cution and defence
attorneys Eugene Dupuch,
Q.C., and Mr. Orville
Tur~,quest to deliver an early
Sing, tolay if possible, or to
make some indication as to
when he would do so, deferred
.rt :u ..,: 0 r .tit
Friday, December 7.
The magistrate's decision
was followed by a shock
request by Vesco's chief
attorney, Mr. Dupuch who
asked that the court return
Mr. Vesco's passport so that
he can travel. Mr. Dupuch, who
drew the magistrate's attention
to his client's faithfulness in
attending the proceedings
daily, said that Mr. Vesco
recently underwent surgery in
Costa Rica and has a medical
appointment to meet for the
removal of stitches.
Magistrate Osadebay said it
would be a dangerous thing for
him to return the document
after vigorous objection by Mr.
Whitfield. He said he believed
there were adequate facilities
on the island for Mr. Vesco to
be attended to here.
Mr. Whitfield also said that
as far as he was concerned,
there was no need for
sympathising because the
accused was present for all of
the hearings. "The law
demands he be present at a
criminal hearing," he stated.

& SidnaFDorsett


MR. VESCO
awaits verdict
The magistrate told defence
counsel that he would have to
refer him to the Supreme
Court with his request.
COMPROMISE
But there was compromise.
"Then can Mr. Vesco be
excused from the proceedings
on Friday?" Mr. Dupuch then
asked, pointing out that Mr.
Vesco also had business
commitments.
This was allowed by the
magistrate who said counsel
would have to inform him of
Mr. Vesco's whereabouts. This
"is not intending to say that
Mr. Vesco will abscond because
if he wanted to run away he
could have done so a long time
ago," the magistrate said.
The defence request
followed the closing of the
prosecution's case and a reply
to Mr. Whitfield's submission
by Mr. Turnquest.
In his submission, Mr.


Whitfield went through a
point-by-point review of the
evidence and inferences.
He said on the evidence it
was known that C. Henry Buhl
III had an "arrangement" with
Vesco whereby Vesco was to
send $50,000 to Buhl as
deposit on the purchase by
Vesco, in some capacity other
than personal, of 375,700 IOS
shares for $140,000.
WIRE FRAUD
Richard Clay, a director of
ICC, requested Robert Ost.
ICC controller, to send
$50,000 of ICC money 4o
BuM. "The proper inference to
be drawn," Mr. Whitfield said,
"is that Clay's request to Ost
contained an implied
representation that the sending
of the money was for the
lawful purposes of ICC.
"From all the evidence
before the court," Mr.
Whitfield continued, "it is
known that the implied
representation by Clay to Ost
was false."
The evidence, showed
further, he went on, that Ost
transferred possession of
$50,000 of ICC money from
the Bank of America to Buhl
by a telegram which on the
evidence of a bank official
passed through New York on
its way to Buhl in Geneva,
Switzerland.
"Vesco, the accused, was
asked about the transfer to
Buhl of the $50,000, and asked
the company officer who
approached him to write it off,
to forget it.
"And it is my submission,"

Police force is 280 under


By Nicki Kelly
THE ROYAL BAHAMAS
Police Force is 280 men under
strength and one of the
deterrents to better
recruitment is the poor
accommodation being offered,
Prime Minister Lynden
Pindling admitted yesterday in
the House.
Government however has
approved the expenditure of
$40,000 for the renovation of
Ranfurly House to provide
another 40 to 50 rooms with
suitable lavatory facilities for
members of the force.
The Prime Minister's
comments on the force were
made in the course of a motion
by Marsh Harbour representive
ErringtonWatkins asking for a
committee to inquire into the
administration and existing
conditions in the force Mr.
Watkins said the matter was
one of national interest and
should not he made a political
football
A similar request for a
committee to look into the

prison situation was also made
by Mr. Watkins, who won
House approval for both
committees but without
authority to send for persons
and papers and leave to sit
from place to place.
Mr. Pindling, in welcoming
the member's request, said he
felt there were two things on
which Government and
Opposition should be agreed,
and that was foreign policy and
the matter of internal and
external security.
Because we should all be
concerned about this security
the committee had his
approval. "I feel it can perform
a valuable service for the
country and could provide new
ideas for the benefit of the
force," he said.
As, however, the matter was
such a sensitive one, giving the
committee the right to send for
persons and papers could
involve its hbasing aLcess to
information that was not in tll
best interests of the country at


this time.
And in a sly dig at Mr.
Watkins, the Prime Minister
suggested that if the member
had not had past associations
with the Abaco independence
movement he might not have
felt such concern about
withholding such authority
from him.
One might not feel safe if
certain information was passed
on to the member for Marsh
Harbour as it would not be
known to whom it might be
divulged."
Turning then to the matter
of the police force, Mr.
Pindline said government was
fully conscious of the
desirability of having a
reasonably satisfied force.
"At this time the House
should know that the physical
plant of the force leaves
something to be desired as far
as accommodation is
concerned "

'NO NEED TO ARM POLICE'--P.M.
THERE are no circumstances at present to suggest that there is
any need for members of the police force to be armed, Prime
Minister Pindling declared in the House yesterday.
Mr. Pindling. who was speaking on a motion for a committee
to inquire into the administration and existing conditions in the
force, said that those responsible for its administration wished to
adhere to established tradition. "And there are no circumstances
at present to suggest that there need be any change in the
approach to that particular aspect of police duties," he added.

POLICE CHIEF

WARNING TO

SLACKERS
THE MEN of the Royal
Bahamas Police Force have
been warned by
Commissioner Salathiel
Thompson that they will be
dealt with "firmly and
promptly" should they do
anything to bring discredit on
the force.
This was stated in the
House Wednesday by Prim
Minister Lynden Pindling,
who was one of a number of
members to praise the
Commissioner.
There may be times when
the public will have reason to
complain of misconduct by
men on the force, he said.
His advice was to bring the
misconduct to the attention
of the Commissioner or his
deputy as quickly as possible.
"The Commissioner has a
strict policy to operate as fine
a force as he can.
"He has let all his men
know that if he finds anyone
behaving in a manner likely
to discredit the force he will
deal with such persons firmly
and promptly.
Opposition Leader Kendal
Isaacs said the country was
fortunate at this time to find
a Bahamian with such quali-
ties as the Commissioner.
"It will give him moral
support to know that the
House commends him for the
work he is doing and is
behind him 100 per cent,"
Mr. Isaacs said.
Mr. Franklyn Wilson
(PLP-Grants. Town) said the
administration of the force
was at present in the hands of
a capable Bahamian who was
respected by his men and
who had their confidence.

were old. The newest was
Ranfurly House and that was
built 15 years ago.
Since the Police College had
been built, and the men had
seen what was available there,
requests for similar
accommodation throughout the
force had been made, the
Prime Minister said.
BAD QUARTERS
He noted that the fire
department had good cause to
complain. They were living and
working in very cramped and
inadequate quarters. The
premises leaked and there were
no facilities for Warming or
cooking food. As soon as this
was brought to the attention of
the Commissioner, facilities for
this were provided.
The Prime Minister disclosed
that agreement in principle had
been reached to convert the
present canteen and use it as
accommodation in "pi n
quarters for the fire ranch

fire branch at Freeport were
also in need of repairs, he said
"What the committee will
find is that substantial capital
sums will be needed to

is to close down December
r continued operational
d lack of bookings.
The brief formal
statement by Mr. James A.
V. Dobbs, vice-president
and secretary of British
American Insurance
Company Ltd., was
communicated to some 70
members of staff still
associated with the hotel
after an earlier cut-back.
"It is with deep regret that I
have to inform you that the
directors of the Montagu Beach
Hotel have decided to close the
hotel effective December 18,
on or before which date
severance pay and other
benefits as appropriate will be
paid.
"This decision has been
made," he said, "because of
continued operational losses
and lack of bookings following
the breakdown of negotiations
to sell the property to
Gloucester Ltd., coupled with
the substantial expenditure
now required to put the hotel
into a competitive position in
the tourist market."
IN EUROPE
Mr. Dobbs told The Tribune
however that British-American
will continue its efforts to sell
the hotel and is now exploring
contacts in Europe.
Sale price for the
44-year-old hotel is being
quoted as $1.4 million or
$400,000 for a 12-year lease
plus $25,000 annually.
Mr. Dobbs estimates that it
would cost anywhere from
$100,000 to $250,000 to put
in the improvements necessary
to make the hotel competitive.
Some of these improvements
would be necessary under the
Hotel Licensing Act, but others
are required to meet the
demands of travel agents.
At this stage however,
British-American, which
became involved with the
Montagu in 1968, is not
prepared to inject any further
sums into the operation.
The firm made the decision
last year to sell the hotel and
concentrate its attention on its
insurance business.
S. AFRICAN GROUP
At the beginning of this year
Condotel (Bahamas) Ltd., the
holding company for the
Montagu and Pilot House Club,
began negotiations with
Gloucester Ltd., a South
African group interested in
purchasing the Montagu.

negotiations fell through when
Gloucester representatives left
Nassau suddenly.

management in June, Condotel
had succeeded in racking up
one of its best years.
'Then we geared everything
to selling, and at the request of
Gloucester did not try to
renew our ITC (Inclusive Tour
Charters) contracts."
Gloucester felt it could get
its guests at a better price than
Condotel.
Since management reverted
back to Condotel, the hotel has


been running at very low
occupancy with seldom more
than 20 to 25 of the 176
double rooms occupied.
The dining room and
kitchen have already been
closed and the hotel was being
maintained with a skeletal
staff.
Although several offers have
been made to Condotel in the
past two months, nothing has
yet developed.


Mr. Dobbs pointed out that
negotiations of this nature
would take at least four
months.
The Montagu is located on
seven-and-a-half acres of land
on the Eastern foreshore.
Condotel is not selling the
30 acres of undeveloped land

continue to retain the Pilot
House.


BOAC cuts 4 daily flights



to Nassau next week


BRITISH Airways/BOAC
has cancelled its London to
Nassau flights for four days
next week, it was announced
by Bahamas manager Michael
Keemer today.
This was due to "the
uncertainty over the long
term supply of fuel in various
parts of the world".
The services concealed are
from Sunday, December 2
through to Wednesday,
December 5.
"Whilst we regret the
inconvenience to our
passengers these flights have
very light loads. We must
conserve fuel for the peak
traffic period which is the
middle two weeks of
December when we got our
Christmas visitors including
the schoolchildren. By taking
action now I believe we
should be able to protect
flights later on."


As these are the only local
flights to be cancelled so far,
British Airways/BOAC is
continuing to accept
bookings on all its other
flights including those out of
Miami, be said.
"Miami is in a similar
position, of course," said Mr.
Keemar, "but between our
own direct flights and the
BOAC 747 out of Miami it
should be possible for most
of the London passengers to
travel on the day they wish.
Passengers travelling to
Bermuda will new have to go
via New York on the days
that our Bermuda services are
cancelled."
MIAMI CUTS
However, it was announced
in Miami by BOAC executive
Tony Linney, that BOAC
intends to eliminate eight
roundtrip flights between


London and Miami in
December and will consider
future reductions through the
winter on a month-to-month
basis.
Linney said British
Airways decided to reduce
service unilaterally because its
Miami-based competitor,
National Airlines, refused to
join in cooperative reductions
to conserve fuel.
"National keeps insisting
that it is going to continue to
operate," Linney said.
National operates daily
roundtrip flights with a triect
DCIO, while BOAC operates
the bigger Jumbo jets.
Linney said BOAC has not
yet designated which flights it
will cut out, but they would
be in the slack early and late
December periods, leaving
daily service in the middle of
the month when traffic
promises to be heavier.


BEC fuel costs have risen



133 percent in less than a year


In less than a year the
Bahamas Electricity
Corporation has experienced a
133 per cent increase in its fuel
oil, Corporation chairman
Preston Albury revealed today.
In a formal statement on
BEC's fuel position, Mr.
Albury said that in spite of
these large price increases, the
Corporation had fared
"reasonably well" in
comparison with other oil
users.
"The prices in many
countries have increased by
substantially greater amounts.
and indications are that in
Nassau the market price for
our main type of oil is
currently in the region of $75
per long ton, which is
substantially higher than we
are paying," he said.
At the same time the
chairman sought to allay
rumours that BEC planned to
lay off large numbers of
employees.
"I would like to state here
that BEC has no such plans,
and I give my assurance to our
employees that should the
situation deteriorate to the
point where layoffs have to be
considered they will be
consulted through their
union," Mr. Albury advised.
$4.3m. PAYROLL
BEC's New Providence
payroll is now $4,300,000
annually for a total staff
complement of 637
The BEC chairman's
statement follows a House
coinni t nit atlon b Prime
Minister L nden Pindling
Wednesday calling for a
voluntaryy 15 per cent cut-back
in fuel consumption, to meet
the international crisis in oil.
Mr Albury pointed out that
the Corporation had to cope
not only with rising fuel costs
but also with the added cost of
expanding power plant in the
Out Islands.
Until December 31, 1972,
under its long term fuel
contract which expired at that


date, BEC paid $21.78 per long
ton for its principal type of oil.
In January 1973 the new
price became $29.46 per long
ton, an increase of 35 per cent.
133p.c. HIKE
By the beginning of October
the price had risen to $38.77
per long ton, and in November
the prise rose yet again to
$50.84 per long ton.
"Thus at 1st November of
this year the price had risen by
133 per cent over the 1972
price," Mr. Albury said. And
even greater percentage
increases in price had occurred
for Bunker 'C' fuel oil, the
other type of oil used by BEC.
The price of Bunker 'C' fuel oil
rose by 190 per cent over the
same period, he said.
The result of these price
increases has been that while
oil cost BEC $2,048,000 in the
year ending September 30,
1972, the cost was $3,269,000
for the year ending September
30. 1973. In the next financial
year the cost will be over $7
million.
"BEC has other large
expenses to meet principal
among them being wages and
salaries and equipment for new
plant both in New
Providence and the Family
Islands." Mr. Albury said.
BEC has built a new power
station in North Bimini using
generators taken out of the
Bay Street Power Station to
meet the needs of that island.
The Corporation has also
gone into the North Andros
area, when the previous
undertaker, Andros
Transmission & Telephone
advised government it was not
prepared to continue

In addition, BEC has taken
over the operation of the
power station in San Salvador
in order to provide supplies to
consumers on that island.
On December 1 BEC will
begin operating in Great


Exuma and will have to build a
power station in Cat Island to
provide supplies to the people
there and to enable
developments to proceed in the
area.
EXPENSES
"Almost $1 million has been
spent for these projects and a
similar amount will be required
in the coming year," the
chairman declared. In New
Providence the Corporation has
just installed a 20MW gas
turbine at a cost of some $2.4
million.
"There has been much
reference recently in the press
to the increasing cost of
living," Mr. Albury said.
"We recognize that prices
have increased but we would
like to point out that BEC has
recently given wage and salary
increases back-dated to
January. These increases
amounted to 20 cents per hour
for wage earners and $400 per
year for salaried employees.
"The same agreement
provides for a further 15 cents
per hour and $300 per year rise
January, 1975.
"In percentage terms these
wage increases gave a labourer
a 12 per cent pay increase in
January 1973, with a further 8
per cent to follow in January
1974 and another 8 per cent in
January 1975."
Mr. Albury said the cost to
BEC for these increases will be
%280,000 in 1973, $490,000 in
1974 and $700,000 in 1975 in
basic pay alone.

PAROLE

BOARD

TO FREE

IRVING
WASHINGTON The US
Parole Board has ordered
Clifford Irving released next
Valentine's Day from a 2V2
year prison sentence for duping
a publisher with a fake
biography of billionaire recluse
Howard Hughes.
The board announced its
decision after meeting behind
closed doors to consider a new
information offered by Irving's
attorneys. The substance of the
data was not disclosed.
The action reversed the
parole Board decision last July
denying Irving's petition .and
scheduling a reconsideration
for January.
Irving, 42, has been
imprisoned at the federal
prison camp in Allenwood,
Pennsylvania, since August
1972.
He was convicted in June
1972 of a conspiracy to
defraud the McGraw Hill
Publishing Co. by telling
officials he was authorized by
Hughes to write the story of
the reclusive industrialist's life.
The story began to fall apart
when Hughes took the rare
step of publicly denouncing
the biography during an
elaborate telephone con-
versation with several
reporters. (AP)

Reaping what they sowed


By ETIENNE DUPUCH
PRIME MINISTER Eric Williams of Trinidad and Tobago has
led his country for 27 years. He took them into independence
over 11 years ago.
There is no question about it ... he is a confirmed racist. He has
never lost an opportunity to make his feelings clearly felt.
I recall that in 1965 the Commonwealth Press Union, which
embraces leading editors and publishers from all over the
Commonwealth, held their conference in the West Indies.
The meeting opened in Bermuda, came to Nassau, then on to
Barbados and Antigua, ending in Trinidad. They were given a
glorious reception all along the line until they got to Barbados
where Eric Williams gave them a lecture that seemed to be out of
keeping with the occasion.
This has been Eric Williams' approach to life all along the line.
**** ***
One of his first actions after getting sufficient control of the
country even before independence was to drive the
Americans out of Chagaramus, a desirable part of the island
which the U.S. obtained in a war-time treaty with Britain when
the Allies were being hard-pressed by the German U-boat war on
the high seas.
Britain gave the U.S. the right to establish bases in some of its
islands in this hemisphere in exchange for 50 destroyers.
This may have appeared to be a one-sided agreement at the
time but, as conditions changed after the war, this proved to be
first class arrangement.
Certainly it was a good thing for impoverished islands in the
Bahamas as the bases brought money into the islands. They have
been missed since the U.S. has found that they were no longer
needed and voluntarily closed down most of them.
-After the war Britain closed down its American and West
Indies naval station at Bermuda and practically turned over
responsibility for policing the waters of this area to the U.S. navy.
Britain now maintains only one sloop in these waters ... just to
watch over the remnants in this hemisphere of a once vast Empire
that circled the globe.
The American base in Trinidad was the largest and most
important in this hemisphere. This was the extreme southern
anchor for U.S. defences in the Caribbean. It became an area for
American personnel and their friends. It happened to be a very
desirable part of the island with attractive beaches. This was after
the Americans had developed it and made the area desirable.
Eric Williams regarded this arrangement as discrimination
against his people and forced Britain to break the treaty with the
U.S.
The Americans had invested multi-millions of dollars into
building this base. In addition, the presence of the base there
pumped several million dollars into the economy every year. This
island, with a large body of unemployed people, needed this
money. But Eric Williams drove them out.
By this action he established a pattern that was followed by
Prime Minister Pindling in disregarding the. provisions of the
Hawksbill Creek Agreement with the Port Authority in Freeport.
These actions have established a trend that suggest that new
island governments in this area have no respect for agreements
and treaties that should be binding in law.
There is no doubt about it ... the Hawksbill Creek outrage lay
the axe to the economy in the Bahamas which was built entirely
on confidence in government and the goodwill of the people. The
effect was quick in the case of the Bahamas because it is an
entirely dependent territory.
The action of Eric Williams in Trinidad worked more slowly
because that island has natural resources, such as oil and bauxite.
But ever since this treaty was broken problems have multiplied
for the government of Trinidad which almost ended in civil war a
few years ago.
********
Eric Williams startled his people recently when he announced
that he plans to give up. He has stated that he will not stand for
re-election to parliament.
Discussing the situation in an article in The Miami Herald,
Barbadian journalist Jimmy Cozier commented that "the decision
of Prime Minister Eric Williams to quit politics and return to
private life has thrown the already confused political situation in
Trinidad and Tobago into further turmoil."
And with good reason ... there is no one in sight who is
considered capable of replacing Williams as head of the People's
National Movement.
Even so ... who, indeed, could hope to repair the damage done
by Eric Williams' policies that have not only driven the economy
into the ground but that has created an unhealthy state of mind
among the people.
In his article Cozier reported that "it is clear from his
lengthy speech to the P.N.M.'s convention that Williams had
become exasperated and disillusioned. He complained that all his
efforts for Caribbean unity had gained little. Domestically, he
said, 'the disease of individualism is more pronounced than
ever'."
One of his chief complaints was that governments in the
Caribbean were still too colonial-minded.
All of this is nonsense, of course. The simple fact is that
Williams, like Prime Minister Pindling in the Bahamas and other-
leaders in this area have created a Frankensteinian monster that
they can no longer control ... and a monster that will eventually
destroy the people who placed themselves under the leadership of
these self-seeking men.

There can be no doubt about it... a Tower of Babel atmos :re
sits astride former British colonies in this hemisphere.
Recently Prime Minister Errol Barrow of Barbados lashed out
against certain governments in the area. His criticisms created a
sensation.
Asked whether he should not apologize, he replied that he had
nothing for which to apologize.
"The fact is that we do have leaders in those islands who do


not take their politics seriously and who, unfortunately, exploit
the people," he said. "They have a certain mob appeal and they
get away with it."
There is still talk of West Indian unity. On this proposal
Barrow said he could not advise Barbados to be associated "with
people who would have no compunction about doing things
which are not in the best interests of the area."
Listen to him talk .. isn't he one of those who broke ranks with
the Organization of American States by negotiating agreements
with outlawed Castro's Cuba?
You will remember, of course the speech Douglas Vaz,
President of the Jamaica Manufacturers Association, made on
conditions in Jamaica. It was so important that The Tribune
published its full text.
In his speech, Mr. Vaz saw Jamaica tottering on the brink of
financial disaster. Kingston, he said, reeks with the stench of
uncollected garbage (collectors had gone on a slow down strike)


Lawyer in Vesco extradition case


I


storms out of courtroom


MAGISTRATE EMMANU-
UEL OSADEBAY and
Vesco extradition prosecutor
Cecil V. Wallace Whitfield
clashed a second time
Thursday afternoon, and the
Magistrate's repeated
interruptions of Mr. Whitfield's
arguments led to one lawyer
rushing angrily out of court,
Mr. Whitfield, trying to
minimise the damage
caused to his case by the
introduction of an apparently
contradictory second affidavit
by one of his own witnesses,
was stopped by the magistrate
who cautioned him against
challenging the evidence of his
own witness.
Mr. Whitfield protested that
he was not challenging the
second affidavit by C. Henry
Buhl, but only seeking to
interpret it in conjunction with
the first affidavit in a bid to
show that, taken together,
there were no substantial
changes in Buhl's evidence.
The argument developed
into a dispute over whether the
second affidavit was
prosecution or defence
evidence.
Mr. Osadebay maintained
that the defence brought the
second affidavit to his
attention and he allowed its
early introduction in lieu of
cross-examination.
He said "this document was
very properly brought before
the court because it revealed
that the witness made
inconsistent statements which
might reflect on his
credibility."
SECOND AFFIDAVIT
In addition, he added, from
what Buhl said in the second
affidavit it appeared that
Assistant U. S. Attorney John
A. Lowe prepared the first
affidavit and had Buhl sign it,
and only later, on examining a
copy of the affidavit, did Buhl
realise that there were


and the opposition in parliament "demonstrates the total futility
of anybody considering them as an alternative government by
their absolutely senseless, totally selfish continued
encouragement for the more-pay-for-less-work syndrome."

And in our dear little Bahamas.
The Tribune of October 6th reports a speech by Dudley
Williams, president of the Bahamas Workers Council in which he
declared in a press reitse that the Labour Movement in the
Bahamas must bear the major share of responsibility for the
country's poor conditions because they have allowed the
government to "get away with too much."
"Conditions, particularly economic, are not good," he
declared. "Thousands are out of work. There is no early hope for
work for the thousands coming out of school. There is no hope in
sight for an early up-turn in the economy. But the government is
not to blame 100 percent.
"BWC maintains that the labour movement has a heavier
responsibility to the people of the Bahamas than the government.
Labour allowed the Government to get away with too much, and
we have not lashed them and forced them to be on their toes like
the U.B.P. Labour went to sleep and, now that we are waking up
to find that the workers of the nation are unemployed, we scream
in panic."
**************
The situation in the Bahamas today is ironic.
You may remember that one of the early deals of the P.L.P.
after they got control of the government was to negotiate with a
Belgian firm to provide tugs for the harbour of Nassau because, it
was said they didn't want to deal with a white Bahamian
company.
This arrangement has cost the Treasury a fortune because the
tugs have not measured up to expectations and still the
government has to pay out large sums of money on a binding
contract.
You will remember that, at the same time, a movement was
afoot inside government to give the stevedoring business on the
docks to a Belgian firm. This was another spiteful blow aimed at
the interests of white Bahamian businessmen who had always
managed work on the docks.
At the time members of the stevedore union signed an
agreement with the local businessmen. After doing this they were
encouraged to break it.
Randol Fawkes, who had given the P.L.P. the majority of one
vote in the House that enabled them to take over the government
in 1967, was made Minister of Labour as a reward for joining
with them.
Mr. Fawkes condemned this action as being dishonourable.
He refused to be a part of it. And when pressure was brought on
him within the party he handed the case over to the Prime
Minister.
It was politically expedient at that time to allow this union to
break its agreement ... and so it did.
These are the elements that have destroyed the economy of the
Bahamas and will eventually destroy the P.L.P. government too.
In order to gain power ... and in the hope of retaining it ... the
P.L.P. government has shown a complete disregard for the
sanctity of contracts and discipline among the people.
As I have pointed out on more than one occasion there can be
no freedom where there is no discipline.
In the Bahamas ... and throughout the West Indies today ... we
have a condition in which governments and peoples ... in seeking
their own selfish interests ... have unconsciously conspired ti
destroy themselves and each other. And a lot of innocent,
misguided people will suffer in the process.
Too bad ... too sad ... too late!

THOUGHTS FOR TODAY
Dictators ride to and fro upon tigers which they dare not
dismount. And the tigers are getting hungry:-
WINSTON CHURCHILL in "Whle England Slept."

The President of India recently quoted Mahatma Gandhi,
father of that nation, of the seven deadly sins (1921): "Politics

conscience, knowledge without character, commerce without
morality, science without humanity and worship without
sacrifice." -
Courtey of Daphne Whitfield's Town and Around column in
The Dibune.


statements in it that were
"untrue," and he therefore
decided to write another
affidavit.
When Mr. Whitfield asserted
that the defence got Buhl to
make the second affidavit,
chief defence counsel Eugene
Dupuch, Q.C., told the court
"my instructions are that Buhl
sought out the defence."
Interpreting the second
said "it is looking like he did
that first affidavit under
pressure," and only when "the
gun was taken from his head"
did he write his own second
affidavit.
STALKED OUT
Attorney Patrick Toothe,
appearing with Mr. Whitfield
for the U.S. Government
suddenly jumped from his seat
at the counsel table and,
instead of squeezing behind the
chairs of other lawyers, quickly
vaulted over the railing and
stalked out of court, anger
showing on his face.
It is thought that he was
upset not so much by the
argument in progress as by Mr.
Osadebay's continual
interruption of Mr. Whitfield's
presentation.
Mr. Osadebay and the other
lawyers in the case took no
notice of Mr. Toothe's abrupt
departure.
Mr. Lowe, in court
throughout the proceedings,
whispered quickly to Mr.
Whitfield, who addressed the
court:
"Mr. Lowe is concerned
about the imputation that he
forced Buhl to make his first
affidavit. He is prepared to go
on oath right now to testify as
to the circumstances in which
the affidavit was made."
When Mr. Osadebay gave no
immediate reply Mr. Whitfield


suggested a ten-minute break.
When the hearing resumed
the prosecutor went on to
another point in his fight to
defeat a defence submission
that Vesco had no case to
answer and ought to be
discharged.
1OS SHARES
In his first affidavit, Buhl
had testified that in December
1971 in Geneva, Switzerland,
he verbally agreed to sell
375,700 IOS shares to Vesco
or to any person or entity
named by him for S140.000.
He said he received a
$50,000 deposit on January 4
last year. (It is that $50,000
that Vesco is alleged to have
defrauded from International
Controls Corporation.) Buhl
said the $90,000 balance was
paid in May last year in the
form of a loan from Bahamas
Commonwealth Bank, with
liability for repayment being
assumed by Kilmorey
Investments Limited, a
Bahamian Company.
In his second affidavit, Buhl
said "I did not enter into a
verbal agreement with Robert
L. Vesco during the month of
December 1971 in Geneva,
Switzerland.
DENIAL MADE
"Furthermore, at no time
did Robert L. Vesco tell me
nor did I ever believe that it
was contemplated that the
stock was to be purchased by
Robert L. Vesco personally."
Mr. Whitfield argued that
the second affidavit did not
preclude an interpretation that
VeN: o and Buhl entered into a
written agreement at some
time other than December,
1971 and in some place other
than Geneva.
Nor, he said, did it preclude
an interpretation that Vesco
might have bought the shares
m "some other capacity than
personally."
Buhl's second affidavit said
further that "I can now state
without qualification that the
purchaser of the stock was to
be Hemisphere Financier
Services Limited, a
wholly-owned subsidiary of
ICC."

SUCCESS at Bridge is
largely a matter of arriving at
the right contract, then making
the right number of tricks. Or
preventing your opponents
from doing the same thing.
Suppose that by intelligent
bidding, you and your partner
do arrive at the right contract,
and it slips through your
fingers in the play. No
experience at the table is more
frustrating, yet none is more
common.
h At the risk of boring my
readers I should once again
like to emphasize the vital
importance of counting. You
don't have to count any
further than thirteen, and it is
only necessary to hold the
results of your count in your
mind for a matter of a few
minutes. Yet failure to perform
that elementary task is by far
the most frequent cause of
spilled contracts.
From rubber bridge comes a
hand which is rich in lessons
for the player who is not a
beginner, but who has not yet
mastered the techniques of the
good player. Success for the
declarer in this case depends on
a combination of counting.
care, and commonsense. Let's
give him the West cards.
He and his partner are Game
and 60, while North and South
have not yet scored. South
deals, and opens with a bid of
2 Spades, which in their system
is weak, and in view of the
score may be weaker still,
based on a 6-card Spade suit
and about 7 points.

Q2


The whole auction was like
this:
S W N E
2 S dble pass 3 H
pass 3 S pass 4 D
pass 4NT pass 5 H
pass 6NT pass pass
This is quite good bidding,
and results in a contract which
appears to have a very good
chance of success. North leads
the 10 of Spades, and West
settles down to assess his
prospects and plan his play.
He starts by counting his
tricks; 2 Spades, 2 Hearts,
hopefully 4 Clubs, and at least
3 Diamonds. That leaves him
one short. What can he do
about that? Well, if he found
the Diamonds divided 3-3, with
the King in the North hand,
that would solve all his


problems. Or if the Queen and
Jack of Hearts were to fall on
the lead of the Ace and King,
that would also give him the
extra trick he needs. But that is
a much more remote
contingency, and he wisely
decides to leave that out of the
reckoning.
Meanwhile, two matters
deserve his immediate
attention. The first is whether
to take the Spade lead in hand
or in dummy, and the second is
what to do after that. A sound
principle arises at this point.
Where you hold A x x opposite
K x, or A x opposite K x x, it
is generally good practice to
take the trick in the hand with
the doubleton honour, thus
giving you a greater degree of
flexibility. So our West takes
the first trick with dummy's
Ace.
Another prime requirement
of declarer play now comes
into focus: where a trick must
be lost, it should be conceded
at the earliest possible
moment
Here, obviously a trick must be
lost to the Ace of Clubs, and
the earliest possible moment is
at hand.
So the 2 of Clubs is led,
South producing the 9, ,West
the 10, and North the Ace.
North gets off lead with the 8
of Spades.
Are you doing any
counting? It is scarcely
conceivable that South's 2
Spade bid was made with fewer
than 6 Spades; North has
shown up with two, and you
held 5 between you and
dummy. Therefore South has
precisely 6 Spades. When
declarer led the 2 of Clubs,
South would hardly play the 9
(the highest apart from his
partner's Ace) unless it were
the only one he had. So it is
beginning to appear that South
has 6 cards in the red suits.
Taking the Spade lead with
the King, West must now
summon up his nerve to take
the Diamond finesse. If it loses
to South, he is going to be
badly down, but there is no
alternative to taking it. Even if
the King were singleton, it
wouldn't help too much. So he
leads the Queen of Diamonds,
sees .with relief that it is
covered by North's King, puts
dummy's Ace on it, then does
another think.
The odds are that the
Diamonds will break 4-2

instead of 3-3. If they do, can
anything be done? Only an
end-play of some kind, which
in effect means a throw-in or a
squeeze. As it is ludicrous even
to contemplate a throw-in once
you have lost all you can
afford to lose, West holds in
reserve the idea of a squeeze. If
South's six red cards consist of
4 Diamonds and 2 Hearts, he
will be under pressure later on,
since he must keep all his
Diamonds to defeat the
contract, but he must also keep
at least one Spade to beat the
small Spade which West still
holds.
Declarer therefore plays off
the Queen of Clubs and enters
his hand with the Ace of
Hearts. Then he plays his other
three Clubs and the King of
Hearts. It so happens that the
full hand is:

^Deo/Abbb



By Abigail Van Buren
t 1973 by Chicago Tribune-N. Y. News Synd., Inc.
DEAR ABBY: I am in prison, but please don't say
where. I pleaded guilty to a charge of child molesting, even
tho I was innocent. I did it to protect my cousin from the
harm that prison life can do to a person. My cousin, who
did the molesting, had never been in prison, and I had.
Now everyone in my family hates me because I had to
make them believe I was guilty. If I tell the truth now, I
will probably be released, but my cousin will have to serve
time.
How can I get forgiveness from my family and still
protect my cousin? WITHHOLD MY NAME
DEAR WITH: Anyone who would molest a child is sick
and in need of treatment. Altho you meant well, you did
your cousin no favor by taking the rap for him. Now he is
free to molest other children while you are being unjustly
punished. My advice to you is to confess innocence to the
charge, and guilty to lying about it.


He took prison rap to protect the guilty


DEAR ABBY: You were asked if it was proper to send
a sympathy card to parents who had had a full term
stillborn child. You said it was.
We disagree. We waited six years for a baby, and when
he finally arrived, he was stillborn. Our family and friends
knew how we felt, and sympathy cards were the last thing
we wanted.
Everyone has a right to his own opinion, and ours is
that it is better not to send sympathy cards for a stillborn
baby.
It has been 32 years now, but we still remember.
NAMELESS
DEAR NAMELESS: I respect your opinion. But be-
cause funerals are generally indicated for full term infants,
I would assume that the grieving parents would appreciate
expressions of sympathy from friends.
DEAR ABBY: This is how I cured my husband of using
objectionable language. I bought a piggy bank, and every
time he used a swear word I made him put a quarter in it.
And when he used a really DIRTY word, I fined him a
dollar. He quit swearing in three weeks. Once in a while he
slips and uses a dirty word, but he's a lot better than he
used to be.
Pass this on to your readers, Abby. It really works!
PIGGY BANK PEGGY
DEAR PEGGY: Consider it done!
DEAR ABBY: I am a 55-year-old man who has never


married. When I meet an unattached woman at a social
gathering, I always introduce myself as a widower. If I
should date her later on I then tell her the truth. Why do I
lie at first? PUZZLED
DEAR PUZZLED: Because you probably think most
people would assume there must be something wrong with
a 55-year-old man who never married. It's a false
assumption, of course. Many 55-year-olds [women and meal
have remained unmarried thru choice. Play It straight.
They might wonder why you lied in the first place.
DEAR ABBY: My ex-husband wants me to marry him
again, and I am considering it even tho my friends tell me
if I do I should have my head examined.
You see, before I married him he had been married six
times. I can tell you a few reasons why we didn't make it.
He has a violent temper. He has tried to choke me and has
ripped my clothes right off my body. You can't reason with
him when he's angry. He also drinks a lot. When he's nice,
he is sweet as honey. He's a wonderful lover but a lousy
husband.
No wife ever lasted more than a year with him, includ-
ing me. He is 35, and I am 40, but he can't be looking for a
"mother" because the girl he married before me was 17.
Can you give me some advice? MIXED UP IN N. D.
DEAR MIXED: You said he was a "lousy husband," so
unless you want a lousy husband, forget him.

Emergency Hostel



kids in desperate


need of h

By Daphne W
S IN THIS COLUMN we have
touched on, and in some cases
explored more in depth, the
various agencies and
institutions existing in the
Bahamas for children with
special problems: the deaf, the
blind, the retarded, the autistic
,q-and those from deprived
backgrounds and inadequate
"-= home environments.
Yet what about those
children who have no homes at
all?


The current social thinking
is that it is preferable for
children to be with their own
parents even if those parents
are only semi-ideal.
Whether this is indeed so is
beyond the scope of this article
today. However, in today's
world of social turmoil there
are those seriously questioning
the traditional idea of the
sanctity of the family and the
home. And, of course, as
government welfare increases
the absolute rights of the
parents are eroded. "He who
pays the piper calls the
tune."
In the Bahamas there are
two institutions catering to
homeless children or those
with absolutely impossible
home situations.
RANFURLYIIOME
The Ranfurly Home for
Children on Mackey Street was
founded by the ('ountess of
Rant urly during the
governorship of her husband,
the Earl of Ranfurly.
Decades later in 1962 the
concept of ; temporaryy shelter
was formed to be known as
"The Children's Emergency
Hostel" so called because it
was to be a home for
e emergency cases and
short-term stays.
It was duly opened in June
1963 in some old, dilapidated


ielp
Nallace Whitfield


army buildings in Oakes Field
and later in 1970 moved to a
new building off Carmichael
Road a gift from the Kiwanis
Clubs of Nassau.
On the surface of it the
Children's Emergency Hostel is
quite a superior temporary
.shelter. The building is new
and attractive and the grounds
pleasantly landscaped.
However, in reality, the
Hostel is no temporary shelter
but at least the semi-permanent
home for many of the children
housed within its walls.
"Emergency" was its original
concept and purpose. But in
the face of practical facts it
would appear to be a
misnomer.
I spoke earlier this year to
Mr. Reginald Gale,
"emergency" house father for
three months during the
summer.
He spoke of the original
purpose of the hostel being for
"very temporary stays" but
said that "if they (the children)
are abandoned there's no end
of the stay" and admitted that
"some (of the children) grow
up here". There are children at
the Hostel, Mr. Gale said, that
have been there two years and
up.
Yet, the set up of the hostel
is obviously not geared to a
more permanent home.
24 CHILDREN
There were 24 children
being housed at the hostel at
the beginning of the week of
our visit who ranged between
the ages of 2 and 7.
Yet the hostel only boasts
two toilets and it is not
difficult to imagine the
accidents that could occur in
the morning with twelve little
children queueing up for one
toilet. "Money is tight at the
moment," said Mr. Gale


THE CHILDREN'S EMERGENCY HOSTEL on Carmichael Road is a "home" for
Nassau's unwanted children.


philosophically.
They used to have older
children, Mr. Gale said, but
they now put pressure on
relatives to take the older
children.
Even if it is true that a less
than ideal home is preferable
to an institution one would
shudder to think what sort of a
home life a child would have
with relatives who have been
pressured to take them in. In
such cases it would become a
debatable point whether this
sort of home life is preferable
to life in an institution.
There are two bedrooms-
one for boys and another for
girls. These would be adequate
for very temporary stays but
lack the privacy and facilities
for the storage of personal
possessions necessary ,.fr a
more permanent home.
CLOTHING NEED
Clothing also presents a
problem. If the Children's
Emergency Hostel was merely
fulfilling its original function
the gifts of second-hand
clothing would be sufficient. If
it is, as it appears to have
become, a more permanent
sort of home a more
regularised source of clothing is
obviously needed. The children


at the hostel change their
clothes twice a week.
This factor alone would
retard play. Obviously, when
children play they get dirty
and play is what these children
need. All contemporary social
thinking emphasis the need for
play for children especially
children coming from deprived
environments or who have
suffered trauma.
There is also neither the
staff nor the facilities at the
Children's Emergency Hostel
for play. Of course, play would
be an irrelevant factor if the
hostel was indeed merely for
overnight shelter as was
originally conceived. But for
children staying weeks, months
and even years play is an
absolute necessity.
Besides Mr. and Mrs. Gale,
the supervisors or "parents"'
who were at the time of my
visit on vacation relief duty,
there was a bus driver, a cook
(Miss Clark) and a night lady.
16-HOUR DAY
In fact, the day I visited was
the Gales "day off" but in
actual fact he said he just takes
three hours off on Tuesdays.
He said that he gets up at 5.45
a.m. and works through until
bedtime at 10 p.m. And then,


of course, there are sometimes
night-time emergencies.
While we were visiting with
the children in their large
combination dining/recreation
area Mr. Gale excused himself
to go and get the children's
"tea" (their evening meal). He
gets their breakfast and tea, he
said.
It would hardly be
reasonable under these
circumstances to expect Mr.
Gale to organize athletic,
remedial dr cultural
programmes.
Mr. Gale spoke about the
desperate need for help in the
area of entertainment. At the
time of my visit the children
seemed to depend almost
solely on Miriam, a little girl of
10 --- mature beyond her years
who came in every day and
"teaches" the younger ones.
FEW VISITORS
Less visitors seem to come
now, Mr. Gale said, to take the
children out. At the time of
my visit their only outing was
on Saturday mornings when a
Coral Harbour couple took
them swimming.
The children, who seemed
very apathetic (and '111 contrast
this with the children at


Ranfurly in a later article),
begged us to take them out and
reminisced happily about
cherished memories of their
past outings.
They mentioned two
occasions: riding horses at a
school fair and a past visit to
the race track with past
house-parents.
Donations of toys and books
is obviously not the answer
without the staff or help to
organise and supervise
recreation adequately.
"Some of the children being
where they're from would
often prefer to tear up a
nice story book instead of
reading it," said Mr. Gale.
But, then, any children of
these ages no matter how
privileged their backgrounds
would tear up books if they
hadn't been taught how to use
them and, often even if they
had, would do so without
proper adult supervision.
ENTERTAINMENT
Poor, harassed Mr. Gale was
obviously at a loss to entertain
his charges. "They don't like
gardening", he said. He
sometimes sends them to
garden but they're back in ten
minutes he said. "They like
throwing stones at birds."
While we're on the subject
of throwing stones I would like
to take the opportunity to
make it clear that I am not
throwing stones at anyone.
Mr. Gale appeared to be doing
his best within the limitations
of staff and facilities not
geared towards a more
permanent "home". And,
anyone working the hours he
was working deserves an
accolade.
The Kiwanis Clubs of Nassau
have provided a more than
adequate temporary shelter.
And Mr. Gale had nothing
but praise for Canon William
Granger, the Chairman of the
Committee. "He can almost get
money out of a stone", Mr.
Gale said. Father Granger will
energetically draw pledges out
of people for specific needs
and then follow them up
assiduously, Mr. Gale said.
Yet, if the Children's
Emergency Hostel has become
a more permanent kind of
"home" as it obviously has
- then it clearly needs a
complete philosophical
re-thinking and staff and
facilities geared towards this
concept.

From Page I
Mr Whitfield said, "that by
that course of action the
accused was continuing the false
representation initially made
by Clay to Ost."
FALSE CONDUCT
Vesco was asked whether
the payment related to Buhl's
sale of IOS shares. Vesco
denied this and continued the
false representation by his
conduct. He could have said "I
don't know anvtine about it at
all," but he didn't." Mr.
Whitfield charged.
And before taking his seat,
Mr. Whitfield declared that
"there is evidence to satisfy
that a trial should take place."
"Then there is the question
of jurisdiction in the U.S. we
have had evidence as to what
constitutes jurisdiction in the
U.S. ... these requirements have
been mentioned already in the
evidence of Mr. Peter ('. K.
Lau". an official of the Bank
of America where the $50,000
account was held for l.(' (.
"and in the evidence of Mr.
John Lowe" Assistant U.S.
District Attornei for the
Southern district of New York.
But Mr. Turnquest, in reply.
said that the validity of the
Extradition Treaty that exists
between the U.S. and the
Bahamas is not being
questioned. He said they were
only questioning "the
existence of it."
It was necessary for its
existence to be shown by the


prosecution, lic said adding
that it must also be shown that
the country requesting the
'xtradltion h .I a1 prima face

criminal in this case Mr.
Vesco.
Hle also said that one of the
cases cited by Mr Whitfield
was valueless as it had nothing
to do with wire fraud.
And, he also said that "at
the end (,t Mr Dupuch's
su bmissio n, your worship
directed himself to the main
issue ... Your worship also
invited Mr. Whitfield to deal
with certain portions of the
law ... I sit down and say that
my learned friend has failed to
do this.
But shortly after taking his
seat Mr. Turnquest was back
on the floor requesting that a
ruling be given in the matter as
soon as possible.
Ile said that it the ruling was
in their favour it would allow
tile accused to go on with his
business but, if it was
otherwise, then they would
begin readying his defence.
"This matter has been
hanging on for some time now
and does have an effect on the
emotional and family life of
Mr. Vesco," he said.
Mr. Osadebay. however said
that he did not wish to "take
the chance" of making his
ruling at the moment
lie deferred his
ruling until Friday.

mentioned in this respect:
radios attached to cycles for
better communication:
expansion of the number of
vehicles on the force to give
greater coverage and protection
to residents, particularly in
Nassau and Freeport: walkie
talkies for the beat policeman.
Although the police
establishment was 280 men
below the figure provided in
the estimates, the shortage of
proper accommodation was


slowing down recruitment, Mr.
Pindling said.
At present no more than 25
or 30 people at one time could
be accommodated in police
quarters. 'Ihought was
therefore being given to
expanding qUarters to
accommodate 75 to 80 men so
that the Police College, which
can accommodate 100 men,

Tomorrow the Pros will come up

table with six wins and one loss under
their belt.
Leading the Crushers will be the

second in the league's rushing with a
total of 603 yards in 93 attempts.
Quarterback Phillip Grant will
also pose problems for the Pros with

Is one sport




favoured?


THE SEASONALISATION
of sports was aimed not at
helping one sport only but to
give each sport time to be
played with the least
competition from other
sporting organizations.
It was considered that if
sports are going to survive
there had to be certain guide
lines, which this seasonalisation
programme has intended to
give.
However, it can be seen that
no such programme can be a
success unless the bodies
involved live up to their
commitments and the basic
principi s involved in amateur
sports goodwill and integrity.
Since the fall of 1971,
attempts have been made to
bring unity among the major
sporting organizations.
Baseball, basketball, volleyball
and football convened at a
meeting then and they
succeeded in drawing up a plan
which was basically kept.
However, seeing a rather
chaotic condition of sports on
the national and international
level, a meeting was called of
association heads late in 1972
with a purpose to discuss and
resolve problems common to
the major sports in the
Bahamas. Four of the five
associations invited attended.
Discussed were various
topic, including the scope of
activity of national
associations, and the best
possible means of bringing
unity, stability and uniformity
to sports throughout the
Commonwealth.
After agreeing that the scope
of activity of associations
might broadly be classified as
competitive and recreational
leagues, and discussing what
each should emphasise, it was
later considered that
associations needed more funds
and better organization on the
competitive level.
In the dying moments of
that meeting, seasonalisation
was brought up but it was
suggested that the present
meeting be terminated and
seasonalisation be the sole
topic of the next meeting.
Six days, later, the five
invited convened in what at
first proved to be a somewhat
heated meeting.
A past proposal on
seasonalisation, which was
agreed to in principle bv
representatives from baseball,
volleyball. football and
basketball associations was
presented.
Certain associations took
exception to the proposal
because the representative
(who agreed to the proposal)
was not an official member of
the said association.

Another association head
disagreed with the proposal
because it appeared that his
association was not being
treated justly.

It was then pointed out that
the latter association was not
present during the adoption of
the original proposal and so
could not then be expected to
accept what was being offered
without further consideration.

Much discussion followed
until it was finally agreed that
the past proposal be given
further consideration by all
and alternate proposals be
presented at their following
meeting.

Although the following
meeting did not take place as
scheduled, two weeks lapsed
and those association heads
convened in a third series of
meetings on seasonalisation.

One association that sat
during the first two meetings
was absent. But a sixth
association was present.
Nevertheless, after reviewing
the proceedings of the previous


GLADSTONE
THURSTON looks at
the seasonalisation of
sports.

meeting, the representatives
immediately set out to redefine
a seasonalisation programme.
A fourth meeting was later
held and associations present
gave final approval of the time
allotted them. Later an
unofficial meeting was held
during which time those unable
to make the fourth meeting
gave their final approval.
The following was the result
of the meetings:

SOCCER: January 1 to
April 30 games to be played
on Tuesday and Thursday
evenings and on Sunday during
the day.

In a letter to the sports desk
recently. A writer expressed
surprise that the Bahamas
Federation of Amateur Sports
was upset over the starting date
of baseball next year. He
further stated that in his
opinion the Federation was
geared to helping basketball
only. He finally added that
baseball was scheduled months
in advance and basketball was
played on baseball's opening
night.

However, from the foregoing
seasonalisation plan, how does
it appear that the Federation is
favouring one snort only?

Not only does baseball have
the longest season of all, but all
of the associations concerned
met and voluntarily agreed on
these times.

If basketball starts in
October and baseball in March
of the following year, then the
basketball schedule obviously
must have been drawn up prior
to baseball's.


since lost, their last three games.
In an effort to regain their old form
the Hurricanes replaced regular
quarterback Zac Smith with former
runningback Mark Sterner but
although Sterner threw two TD passes
the Hurricanes still went down 14-0 to
cross town rivals, Crushers last week.
With Huyler, Bostwick and
quarterback Jesse Ferguson playing
alongside Russell, the Jets should
record another convincing win on their
way to their second straight league
title and another undefeated season.
With the Classic Pros now out of the
running for the playoffs the battle for
the fourth place in the league table


will reach an exciting climax if the
Marlins can beat the Hurricanes next
week.
A Marlins win against the
Hurricanes will mean that the fourth
place will be decided in the last game
of the season when the Stingrays and
Marlins will clash with six wins and
three losses to their credit.
