BUT circulate teachers' reply to St. Andrew's board


ST. ANDREW'S SCHOOL staff have formed a teachers
association "to protect its members from the type of action"
taken against headmaster John Chaplin, who was fired by the
Board of Directors on June 18 after 19 years service. The new
association will also "discipline unprofessional members of staff"
and "promote certain professional ideals."


The Staff pledged their
absolute support of
Mr. Chaplin and saw "no
reason whatsoever for his
dismissal." They declared that
they were "entirely happy with
his leadership, approach and
conduct."
The Staff also revealed that
on two occasions they
considered strike action, but
were discouraged from doing
so by Mr. Chaplin.
This was disclosed this week
in a printed nine-page
statement by the teachers of
St. Andrew's and circulated to
directors ,shareholders and
parents of the school by Mr. A.
L. Archer, president of the
Bahamas Union of Teachers.
"The Staff have taken the
trouble to provide the
corrections in order that
shareholders and parents might
know the truth. Only thus can
St. Andrew's School function
as it should," the teachers'
statement said.
COVERING LETh'IE
In covering letter to Mr.
Bill Hlolowesko, chairman of
the Board of Directors, B.U.T.
President Archer said.
"Ever since June, when the
Board of Directors of St
Andrew's School fired Mr.
John Chaplin, officers of the
Bahamas Union of Teachers
have met with you, with Mr.
Chaplin, with teachers from St.
Andrew's and with members of
the Parents' Committee in
order to ascertain the facts
behind the firing. As a result of
these meetings, a report has
been prepared, and I am
sendi"q you a copv of th.'t
report. *
"In the report of the Board
of Directors, two major reasons
were given for the dismissal of
Mr. Chaplin. They were: (1) He
literally forced his staff to
cooperate with him and (2) liHe
was a very difficult man for the
Board to work with, since he
often refused to carry out the
directives of the Board.
"The first allegation is
effectively refuted by this
report, since the teachers of St.
Andrew's, with the exception
of two teachers, all say that
they enjoyed a most
professional and happy
working relationship with Mr.
Chaplin," Mr. Archer said.
"'The Board itself found it
difficult to substantiate the
second allegation, and they
found it necessary to go back
to 1955 to find an occasion of
non-cooperation on the part of
John Chaplin. If the Board
could only find one instance of
non-cooperation, and this
occurred eighteen years ago,
then it must surely mean that
the troubles began with this
particular Board and lends
credence to the suggestion that
this Board has tried to dabble
into the day-to-day running of
the school. To accept the
suggestion that other Board
chairmen from 1955 to 1972
were so weak and ineffective so
as to allow John Chaplin to
usurp the legitimate powers of
the Board is to do disservice to
the fine men who served on the
St. Andrew's Board from 1955


liberty of sending a copy of
this letter with the attached
report to the Shareholders,"
Mr. Archer told Mr.
Holowesko.
STAFF'S REPLY
The statement of St.
Andrew's staff is in reply to a
15-page document presented
by the Board of Directors at an
extraordinary general meeting
called on August 7 to
investigate the headmaster's
firing. Instead of appointing an
investigative committee as the
Parents Committee had
requested, Board members,
with the large block of proxy
votes in their possession,
pushed through a vote of

confidence in themselves.
The Staff have labelled the
Board's statement as a
document containing "many
untruths and misstatements."
They have taken each one of
the Board's accusations against
Mr. Chaplin and under
headings of "Not True",
"False", "Absolutely False",
"Misleading", and "Absolutely
without Foundation". have
given details to refute the
charges.
"During that period when
the Board claim that Mr.

Chaplin generated 'unhealthy'
situations, and victimised
members of staff, there were
forty-two teachers under his
control," the teachers state. Of
the 42 only two publicly
criticised Mr. Chaplin. "In both


their cases it was well known
that the criticism originated
with personal and private
quarrels."
All of the remaining
teachers, including one who
later spoke against Mr. Chaplin
at the August 7 general
meeting, "signed a statement
indicating their full support of
Mr. Chaplin and deploring the
unethical action of the two
teachers." It was the opinion
of the forty staff members that
the two teachers should leave
the school and one of them
"eventually had the grace to do
so.
"All the remaining staff,
including those who had
worked with Mr. Chaplin for
many years, can readily testify

Nassau'-- US envoy

SAYING he had yet to see one really good film in Nassau. U.S.
ambassador Ronald I. Spiers told Rotarians yesterday that "a
steady diet of cheap, cynical, exploitive films is bound to lower
the cultural level" of the community.


Mr. Spiers, who has been
ambassador here for the past
three months, was commenting
frankly on his first impressions
of the Bahamas at a luncheon
of the East Nassau Rotary club
at the Flagler Inn.
The U.S. diplomat urged
Bahamians to improve the type
of films exhibited here and said
the embassy hoped to
introduce a programme of
"classic films" which he
believed would be well
received.
In a talk that was mainly
favourable to Bahamians he did
deplore the low level of
cultural opportunities here and
suggested a comprehensive
library system and national
museum be established "to
encourage Bahamian youth in
their search for knowledge of
science, history and literature."
The other controversial issue
discussed by the ambassador
was the high level of prices and
the low level of productivity
here.
HIGH PRICES
He said that much of the
cause of high prices was
world-wide and could not be
directly controlled by
Bahamians. On the other hand,
he said. it appeared that labour
was "quite high priced" here
and stressed that he was not
speaking simply of wage levels
but of the ratio between labour
costs and productivity.
He said that "since
Independence, I would think
that Bahamians are working for
themselves and I think their
country's future may well

MARSH HARBOUR
representative Errington
Watkins has won appointment
of a House committee to look
into the administration and
conditions at the prison.
Referring to the number of
prison escapes over the past
year, the member argued that
something must be wrong.
"The public is entitled to
protection from these
escapees," he declared.

representative Michael

this work force for giving a
day's work for a day's pay."
lie also suggested that stress
should be laid in the Bahamas
on developing technological
skills and an argicultural base
that would lessen the nation's
dependence on food imports.
Only 15 percent of the
Bahamas' food is produced
locally, he said. But he pointed
to the co-operative venture on
North Andros in which the
U .S. and Bahamian
Governments were working
together on a pilot project to
develop 2,000 acres of land for
raising livestock and crop
resources.
While Mr. Spiers found
Nassau "a cleaner city than
most world capitals" he
warned Bahamians that their
great natural resources of
scenic beauty could be ruined
very easily and urged them to
safeguard their heritage dearly.
lie went on: "The Bahamas
has become Independent' with
a majority government, a
responsible opposition
and. ..what has happened here
seems to me irreversible....and
I. for one, think it is a good
thing. If I were a Bahamian,
regardless of my colour. I
would think that the time for
full and sincere cooperation
with all of my fellow citizens
had come.
"You have a magnificent
opportunity to construct a
going, harmonious, multi-racial
society if all are prepared to
work together for the good of
the nation "


AT PRISON
Lightbourn, who seconded the
motion, said he had recently
spoken to someone who had
spent a week at the prison.
"He complained of
trem endous overcrowding.
Youngsters put in with
hardened criminals are in
danger of assault. Some stole
because they were hungry.
Anyone with any money can
have access to pot. Lavatories
are overcrowded and unclean.
Prisoners are being beaten

its position on the showing of

amend that position," Mr.
Robert, said.
His remarks were prompted
by Marsh Harbour
representative Errington
Watkins' request for a
committee to investigate all
matters pertaining to the
showing of movie films in
theatres throughout the
Bahamas.
A similar committee was
named in the last session of the
House and Mr. Watkins was
asking for its re-appointment.
"When I agreed to this
committee during the last
session, I held the view it
would be duplicating a lot of
the work of a previous
committee, and this in fact has
happened," said Mr. Roberts.
In spite of this, he had no
objections to the committee
being re-appointed as it would
bring in new people "and show
what we are up against."
Noting that dozens of films
had been banned in the past
few months, the Minister
observed that "you cannot
please everyone in the matter
of censorship."
'1 WAS RIGHT'
On the question of "JususS
Christ Superstar," he said the
Committee had received more
congratulations for banning the
film than criticism.
"And I still feel I was right
on that," declared Mr. Roberts.
Because he was not satisfied
with the quality of films being
shown, the Minister had asked
that all movies ratedd 'R'
("Restricted") by the previous
committee should be brought
to the attention of the present
comn mittee.
"We are pretty strict on
movies now, and you should
see what we have turned
down."
The Minister indicated that
there wou!d be a broadcast
shortly in which theatre
representatives would
participate to show what had
been done in the past few
months.
UNSUITABLE
Mr. Norman Solomon
(FNM-St. George's), remarked
that much of the cinema
material that continues to be
shown "is totally unsuitable at
any level."
He asked the Minister to be
even more strict, as the most
lurid vocabulary was being
used in the advertisements for
forthcoming films.
Mr. Solomon said he could
not understand why "Jesus
Christ Superstar" "which is
cultural if modern" should
be banned, when the public
could watch people with fangs
eating other people.
Named to the House film
committee were: Mr. Watkins,
Cyril Fountain (FNM); Alfred
Maycock (PLP); George
Mackey (PLP): Anthony
Roberts (PLP); Norman
Solomon (FNM) and Edmund
Moxey (PLP).


that at no time, in all those
years, was he ever guilty of
creating 'unhealthy' and
'undesirable' situations as
claimed by the Board.-
PEACE AND PROGRESS
"This then," say the Staff,
"is the meat of the matter. St.
Andrew's School under Mr.
Chaplin, enjoyed almost 20
years of peace and progress
until the coincidental alliance
of a very small minority of
staff with personal grudges,
and an incompatible Board of
Directors.
"It seems obvious that if
there were a clear reason for
the dismissal of Mr. Chaplin,
then one sentence would
suffice to express it, but 15

Gas


price


hike


shock
THE PRICE of a 100 lb.
cylinder of liquefied
petroleum gas has been
increased from S13 a drum to
$21, effective today. Shell
Bahamas and Tropigas Ltd.
have jointly announced.
Responsible for the
increase is a shortage of
LPGas, even before the
Middle East oil crisis, and
steadily rising prices.
A statement from Shell
Bahamas Ltd. said that gas
sold by its "Bahamas Gas"
division is being raised by 32
cfnts per gallon to all
consumers.
This means a 100 lb.
cylinder will now cost $21.
"The prices of liquefied
petroleum gases have been
rising steadily throughout the
first ten months of the year."
Shell said.
LPGas was also in short
supply in any event, hence
the rationing in the U.S.
proposed by the President
even before the Middle East
war.
The company said that the
Middle East conflict and the
resultant cut-backs in oil
production have "very
significantly" aggravated the
situation, resulting in much
greater shortages and in
"massive price increases
passed to us by our suppliers
from November 1."
Added to this have been
severe inflationary pressures
affecting the cost of cylinders
and other equipment, and
local operating costs. These
however, Bahamas Gas ha, to
date been able to absorb
through increased efficiency,
Shell said.
It assured its customers
that it would continue to do
its best to maintain'
continuity of supplies at this
time of world-wide shortage.

Mr. Bernard, formerly bell

strike action. Each time Mr.
Chaplin talked them out of it.
When they returned from
their summer vacation and
discovered that the major
shareholders had supported the
Board's document of "hearsay
and vague accusations" they
"discussed strike action and a
refusal to open the school."
Say the teachers: "Mr.
Chaplin wrote to the Staff and
asked them to open the school
and not to jeopardise the
children's education. After
much discussion the Staff
reluctantly agreed to do as Mr.
Chaplin asked."
However, in a statement to

"My question: 'How much

Mr. Stirman took space in
both dailies to offer a $1,000
reward for information leading
to the arrest ui ob attackers,
and also prominently warned
visitors about the dangers of
walking between the two
hotels.
"There are three big
hotels in that area of Cable

the government needs to do is

P.M. DENIES HAVING ANY


ACCOUNT AT REBOZO BANK


PRIME MINISTER
Lynden Pindling is among
ten people named by
Florida State Attorney
Richard Gerstein in his bid
to obtain bank records
from Bebe Rebozo's Key
Biscayne bank.
A story in yesterday's
Miami Herald says that the
request is linked to Mr.
Gerstein's investigation of
President Nixon's personal
accounts at the bank.
There have been
allegations that campaign
funds for President
Nixon's 1972 election
campaign were funneled
through the Rebozo bank.
Mr. Rebozo is a close
friend of the President.
The Florida State
attorney issued subpoenas
Wednesday asking the Key
Biscayne bank to supply
his office within a week


with records of savings
certificates or turst
accounts in any of the ten
names supplied.
Named with the Prime
Minister were: Donald
Nixon, brother of the
President and Seymour
Alter, a consultant to the
Paradise Island casino.
A spokesman for Mr.
Pindling quoted the Prime
Minister yesterday as
saying: "I do not have an
account in that bank and I
have never had an account
in that bank.
The bank has neither
confirmed nor denied that
it has accounts in the
names supplied by Mr.
Gerstein.
The Florida Attorney
says he is prepared to go
to court if necessary to get
the records.


subject was not closed.
"Aspects will be examined
more formally with a view to
further action at a later date,"
they declared at that time.
Tie staff did not question
the Board's right to fire the
Headmaster, but. they said,
"this should be done in a
d,;nified and professional
manner." The Staff had
requested that the Headmaster
"be allowed one year to phase
out of St. Andrew's in a
dignified manner."
ABRUPT DISMISSAL
Mr. Chaplin was fired by the
Board on June 18, four days
before St. Andrew's School
closed for the summer
vacation.
"Abrupt dismissal at this
time of year," say the Staff,
"smacks of victimisation and is
unethical because, among other
reasons, it leaves no
opportunity for fresh
employment."
Said a parent today: "While
Mr. Chaplin was busy
interviewing teachers to join
St. Andrew's for the
September Term, he should
have been looking for a job for
himself. But the Board didn't
let their intentions be known
until it was too late for him to
apply for a job for the
September Term."
And say the teachers in their
statement "in September,
1972, one year ago, the
Chairman of the Board and the
Headmaster issued a
jointly-signed statement
declaring their mutual
reconciliation and the Board's
complete confidence in the
Headmaster."
As a consequence of the
Headmaster not being given
sufficient notice he is still
jobless. His wife, Jean, who
had been the school's English
teacher 4or .he past 19 years
was also dismissed. No reason
was given for her firing. She
too is without a job.
"That a headmaster, who
has given to St. Andrew's 19
years of 'invaluable
contribution', to quote the
words of the Board of
Directors, should be dismissed
in this manner must surely put
all other members of Staff,
whose contribution has been
something less. in a very
insecure position," the Staff
state.
THE LADIES COMMITTEE
One of the main irritants to
Staff has been the resurrection
of the Curriculum Review
Committee, better known as
"The Ladies Committee."
The Board of Directors had
charged that Mr. Chaplin had
incited the Staff to be
uncooperative with the
Curriculum Review
Committee.
"Not true," say the Staff.
And they continue:
"Over 20 years ago. when
the school was tiny and was
experiencing endless trouble
with Headmasters and staffing,
the company articles
empowered the school
committee (usually known as

BRUSSELS -- Saudi Arabian oil minister
Sheikh Ahmed Zaki Yamani said he will fly to
Washington Monday for talks with U.S.
Government officials on the Middle East oil

Yamani told a news conference in Brussels
he could not say whether he would meet with
President Nixon.
He will be accompanied by Algerian oil
minister Belaid Abdessalem, who had been
travelling with Yamani on a tour of \1 esirn
European capitals to explain the Arabs' new
oil policy.
Yamani also said he has agreed to meet with
a minister from the Dutch Government a
government which has been subject to a 100

"We have been asked to meet a Dutch
minister and we have accepted" Yamani said.
Yamani said he did not know how long he

His meetings with American officials are
likely to be the most important of the tour,
which began in Paris Monday. The stop-offs so
far also include London and Brussels. The two
Arab ministers are scheduled to have talks in

States liquidated its differences with China and
obtained a settlement in Vietnam and over

European security. These events have been
presented as a necessity for peace and stability
in the world and in Europe. What we want are
the same conceptions to be applied to Arab

SILVER BULLION

RAIDER JAILED


LONDON London
gangland figure George Ince
was sentenced to I5 years' jail
for a one million-dollar silver
bullion holdup in the third trial
he has faced in a year.
Two other men were also
sentenced to 15-year terms for
the holdup. that biggest-ever
silver bullion robbery in
Britain.

The judge at the Old Bailey
Criminal Court trial. Sir
Helenus Milmo, said the trio
were "dangerous criminals"
who carried out the raid near
London in May last year with
''military precision.'

It was foiled by a milkman
in his slow-moving delivery
truck who created a traffic jam
and trapped the gang's getaway
car. The trio fled on foot and
were arrested later.
With Ince, 36, were

A little further south on the
Greenland east coast the
people of Nanortalik made
nightly raids on a dump to dig
beer out of the ground.
And in nearby Narssaq the
bulk of the population spent
hours on the icefloes of the
fjord hauling beer from the sea.
That was what happened
when health authorities in
Southern Greenland ruled that
a shipment of canned beer was
unfit for human consumption
and ordered the destruction of
200,000 cans of over-fer-fermented
beer.
At Julianehaab 150,000 cans
were thrown in an old quarry,
but many cans broke and the
beer seeped into the small
town's water reservoir close by.
At Nanortalik a bulldozer
buried some 40,000 cans at the
town dump, but not secretly or
deeply enough to keep the
townspeople from digging it up
And at Narssau the
remaining 10,000 cans were
thrown into the sea, but not so
far out that Greenlanders, all
skilled fisherman, could not
recover it. Unhealthy or not,
the beer was drunk and there
were no reports of other than
the normal symptoms of beer
drinking. (AP)

Ben-Gurion is dead


TEL AVIV David
Ben-Gurion, Israel's founding
father, author of its
independence and the Jewish
state's first premier, died
today.
He was 87. Death was
pronounced at Tel Hashomer
hospital. His family and close
friends were at his side.
The diminutive Ben-Gurion,
who had retired in 1963 from
the premiership and from
public life in 1970, suffered a
cerebral haemorrhage Nov. 18.
He rallied at first under
around -the-clock medical
attention, but his condition
began to deteriorate Nov. 23,
with a drop in pulse and blood
pressure.
Since then doctors had
remained close by.
Friends told newsmen there
was no hope.
Ben-Gurion, who as early as
1907 urged Jews in Palestine to
arm themselves against the
Arabs, declared an independent
Jewish state there 41 years
later.
He was the nation's
dominant figure during its first
15 years. Ben-Gurion resigned
as premier in 1963 and quit the
Knesset, or Israeli parliament,
seven years later.
His leonine visage beneath
twin tufts of white hair his
name is hebrew for son of a
lion cub became as well
known in his day as Charles de
Gualle's profile or Winston
Churchill's cigar.
Ben-Gurion retired to a
cluttered study at his home in
a kibbutz in the Negev desert,
and quietly switched from
making history to writing it
11 volumes on Israel's early
years.
He rarely emerged from the
house where a large portrait of


THERE WILL BE PEACE

AGAIN' SAID ISRAEL'S

FOUNDING FATHER


his late wife and a map of
Israel hung over worn
furniture, and a vase of roses
set off an array of awards and
mementos. On his desk a bible
and a bottle of apple juice
always stood among the
scattered papers.
In an interview on his 86th
birthday last year, Ben-Gurion
said the Jewish state he
declared in 1948 actually
began in 1870, when French
Jews opened an agricultural
school near Tel Aviv "to teach
the Jews to work the land and
rebuild our country."
But in another sense, he
said, the nation will not really
exist until there is peace with
the Arabs, until Israel's
population is tripled and its
desert is developed.
"Peace with the Arabs?
Once we were at peace, and we
worked together...there will be
peace again. I am not certain it
will happen in six months or a
year, but we will have it,
"The main problem facing
Israel today is to bring more
Jews to build the country... We
need at least five or six million
Jews more. How long will it
take? I cannot tell you. I
believe it can be done in 10 or
15 years. but I am not
certain."
The future statesman was
born David Green in Plonskgn
Poland, on Oct. 16, 1886. His
father, an unlicensed lawyer,
turned their home into a center
for Zionism.
Ben-Gurion came to


Palestine in 1906 to work as a
labourer in one of the tiny
Jewish settlements cropping up
there. Like other European
Jews who began a new life in
Palestine, he chose a new name
from the bible.
He soon became a militant
Zionist and in 1915 tbh
Turkish rulers cf Palestina
expelled him. He went to th'
Unitect States to raie money+
While in America,
Ben-Gurion met a young nurse.
They were married anj
remained together until her
death in 1968 at the age of 76.
In 1920 he helped found the
mapai political party, and later
help establish the Histadrut,
Israel's powerful labour
federation.
On May 14, 1948, the same
day that the last British troops
left Palestine, Ben-Gurion
declared Israel an independent
state and became its first
premier.
Armies from neighboring
Arab states promptly invaded,
and the war that followed left
Israel weary and impoverished.
Ben-Gurion pulled the nation
to its feet with rationing and
other austere economic
measures.
His opponents called him
crusty and unbending and
lacking in compassion for the
Arabs, but few questioned his
integrity.
"Our very existence depends
on our absolute integrity," he
once remarked. "Without it we
would be just another
levantine state."(AP).


Dead sister remained part of family


CONCORD The skeleton
of an elderly woman was found
in a locked-up house and police
said it appeared as if her body
had been placed in the living
room by a brother and sister.
The brother and sister also
were found dead in the house.
All had apparently died of
natural cases, officials said.
Police said the skeleton of
Cecilia Kenney, 84, was
discovered on a downstairs
couch facing a television set.
They said she may have been
dead as long as a year.
Upstairs, police found the
bodies of her 76-year-old sister,
Grace, lying on a bed next to
the brother, Roland, 72. They
were thought to have died
within the last month,
according to officials.
Det Sgt. Bruce Russell said
in his report, "it appears that
Cecilia died of natural causes
and the other two dressed her
and laid her on the couch so
that she could still remain part
of the family.


"Grace and Roland
continued living a normal life.
Roland died around a month
ago, and was asleep in his bed
at the time. Grace left him
there, and tried to continue her
life but found she could not.
4 he lay in the same bed as
Roland and died a few days or
weeks later."
Medical examiner Thomas
Mathews said there was no
evidence of foul play.
The family was reclusive
and shunned contacts with
neighbours, authorities said.
The discovery was made
alter neighbours called the Post
Office to report that mail had
been piling up in front of the
house for three weeks. Post
Office officials notified police,
who entered the house through
a window and discovered the
three bodies, along with the
bodies of two pets.
A neighbour said: "They
were very quiet people. You
never heard a peep out of
them."


A police sergeant said the
two-storey Victorian house had
not been painted on the outside
for about 30 years, and that
much of the yellow paint had
peeled.
"But inside it was very
neat," he said. "It had old
*


furnishings and a wood stove.
They weren't poor. They had a
car parked in the garage."

"There was a bag of
groceries on the kitchen table,
so they didn't starve to death,"
the sergeant said. (AP).

By ETIENNE DUPUCH
THERE is a great satisfaction in receiving an honour from the
sovereign when the recipient knows that he has honestily earned
it.
There are occasions, unfortunately, when "honours" are
awarded as a matter of expediency. These decisions are a
reflection on everyone concerned and a smear on the escutcheon
of honour.
It was my privilege to be a sponsor for both Fr. Cornelius,
O.S.B. and the late Fr. Frederick, O.S.B. at ceremonies when they
were created Officers of the Most Excellent Order of the British
Empire.
The honour was conferred on Fr. Cornelius for his great social
work in Long Island and on Fr. Frederick for the tremendous job
he did in building St. Augustine's College and making it one of
the leading centres of education in the colony.
This award to Fr. Cornelius was made by Her Majesty the
Queen on the recommendation of Major General Sir Robert
Neville, K.C.M.G., C.B.E., R.M. (retired), Governor of the
Bahamas from 1950 to 1953.
This award is mentioned in some detail in. Upon These Rocks,
a history of the Catholic Church in the Bahamas by Fr. Colman
Barry, O.S.B.

I have received from Sir Robert a copy of a letter he has
written to Bishop Leonard, O.S.B. about the report published in
this book.
I hope he doesn't mind ... but I am going to publish it because
it is a tribute to this great Catholic missionary who has now
retired from an elevated post in the diosese in Nassau to be pastor
of a small mission church in Grand Bahama.
I will reprint Fr. Cornelius' statement first, and then the facts
as presented by Sir Robert
*4 ******* ***


The report on the O.B.E. published in the book is a part of a
statement by Fr. Cornelius in which he describes his work and
experiences in the Bahamas since he joined the diocese in 1934.
Here it is.
"I left Long Island not because I wanted to," wrote Fr.
Cornelius. "But Fr. Bonaventure died on 9th December 1954,
and Bishop Leonard called me and appointed me Vicar General, a
job that I didn't want. I think it was probably the hardest thing in
my life that I had to do when I left Long Island. He appointed me
in 1954 and in 1955 1 came in to Nassau. From 1955 on I was in
Nassau.
"The reward of it all was that in 1955 1 was honoured by the
Queen and received the O.B.E. (Order of the British Empire) but
that was given mainly because of social work. It was really the
non-Catholics in Nassau the Matron of the hospital and the
Bahanuan Red Cross representatives who visited Long Island. I
took them around.
"I was the doctor and the Matron was the nurse. I had the
drugs at the time. Bishop Leonard brought a supply of drugs from
-Brooklyn. I must have had a couple thousand sulphur diazine
-tablets. I said to the Matron, 'Here, give that out,' because she
knew more than I did. The people called me the doctor and she
was the nurse. She reported all of this back to Nassau. Sir William
Murphy was then Governor of the Bahamas.
"Then Sir Robert Neville came and it gives you an insight into
how the British work. When they go back, when there is a new
appointment, everything is reported to the Colonial Office. One
day when Sir Robert Neville was here the Bishop asked me, 'Have
you met the Governor?' 1 said, 'No, I've never seen him.' 'Well he
knows you.' I thought, well how does he know me?
"Then that spring about a year later the notice came that (ail
the secret stuff, you know) I was to be honoured with the O.B.E.
A couple months before that I had been asked by the
representative of the island whether I would accept an M.B.E.
(Member of the British Empire). I said, 'No, I couldn't, I'm an
American.' And we argued and finally he said, 'If it's possible for
you to get it will you accept it?' I said, 'Sure it's an honour for
the Church.'
"When the honour came it was an O.B.E. Later on 1 found out
that the Anglican Bishop Knowles of Antigua, who is retired in
Nassau now, had received the O.B.E. so the governor said, 'We
can't have the Catholic Priest lower than the Anglican.' And he
changed it from the M.B.E. to the O.B.E. That's how I got the
O.B.E. When I was invested in November, 1955, the Patrick Air
Force Commander and many other persons attended the
ceremony. When the Colonial Secretary read the citation, I was
standing in front of the governor. The Secretary enumerated the
various things I had done for the people. The women, all there in
formal evening gowns in the ballroom of Government House,
laughed when he mentioned I was a doctor and midwife and
carpenter and mason, mechanic and everything else."
*****************


Now here is a copy of the letter written to Bishop Leonard by
Sir Robert Neville recording how in fact Fr. Cornelius was singled
out for this recognition.
"Thank you so much for sending us Fr. Coleman's book Upon
These Rocks," wrote Sir Robert. "We are delighted to have it and
it was very kind of you to remember us. I have not had time to
read more than a few pages in the book but I find it of absorbing
interest and most readable.
"I naturally turned to the pages in which kind mention of me is
made and I must tell you that my dear friend, Fr. Cornelius, has
given an erroneous account of how he came to be Lwarded the
O.B.E.
"The true account is as follows. In 1952, when I was Governor
of the Bahamas, I visited Long Island and, during the afternoon I
was taken around his area by Fr. Cornelius for whom I
immediately formed a great admiration and, afterwards, an
equally great affection. Never having met a similar type of
Priest it amazed and delighted me that, in addition to his religious
duties, he should help the people so much as doctor, veterinary
surgeon, truck mechanic and all the many other things that he
did.
"It was quite obvious to me how much his people relied upon
him. I then and there decided to recommend him to the Queen


WHEN a political party is
elected to power in a
democratic country the people
have the right to expect that
that party will stand on their
platform, that they will fulfil
or try to fulfil their promises.
The people also have the right
to expect that the leaders of
the party would consult with
their colleagues on a regular


The PLP


basis and particularly when
important decisions have to be
made.
If those requirements are
not met then a democratically-
elected Government can in fact


for the award of an O.B.E. and I did so almost directly I got back
to Nassau. You will remember that I asked you first whether you
had any objection to the recommendation.
"In due course Her Majesty approved the award and I invested
Fr. Cornelius at Government House in Nassau in 1952, not, as
stated in the book, in 1955.
"As regards Fr. Cornelius' belief that originally he was to be
given a M.B.E. and was only raised to O.B.E. because Bishop
Knowles was getting an O.B.E. at the same time, this is entirely
wrong.
"What happened was that when I showed my recommendation
for an O.B.E. for Fr. Cornelius to the Colonial Secretary, he said
that I would cause terrible offence if I recommended a Roman
Catholic Priest for a decoration and failed to do so for one of my
own church. I therefore asked the Colonial Secretary for the
name of a suitable Protestant Priest recipient and he
recommended the Rev. Donald Knowles, as he then was. I was
happy to put Bishop Knowles in as well, but really Fr. Cornelius
was responsible for Bishop Knowles getting his O.B.E. and not
the other way round, as is suggested in the book although, let me
say at once that I realized at the time that Bishop Knowles fully
deserved the honour. It just didn't occur to me until the
spectacular, swashbuckling, piratical figure of Fr. Cornelius had
impressed itself upon me, what a splendid job the priests and
ministers of all denominations were doing in the Colony."
********************
Fr. Cornelius is not really a doctor. He is what was known in
the Bahamas as an "unlicensed Practitioner" during a period
when the Government was unable to provide doctors for the Out
Islands. I can actually remember when one of these men worked
in Nassau under the guise of a fully qualified doctor and built up
a large practice.
Missionaries of all denominations and others too who took
a short course of training in medicine, were licensed to carry on
certain medical work in the islands where there was no doctor.
Some of the operations performed by these men were really
amazing.
In his statement Fr. Cornelius describes how he went from St.
John's Abbey in Minnesota to New York and took a medical
missionary course at St. Vincent's Hospital before coming to the
Bahamas.


Long Island was such a Protestant stronghold that it was
difficult for the Catholic Church to break the barrier raised
against them in that Island.
In this report Fr. Cornelius tells how he pulled teeth, lanced
abcesses and performed what might be considered difficult
operations. Here's another extract from the book:
"One day," he wrote, "I was walking to the commissioner's
office on Long Island and he was with me. There was a man
coming on horseback, and there were a couple of girls about fifty
feet ahead of us. The man on horseback was from the North and
he said. 'Father, you are just the man I wanted to see.' I said,
'Well, what's wrong' he said, 'I want you to come to my boy.' I
said, 'what's wrong with, him?' he said 'Oh there's something
wrong, with his fizzler.' l~,ali, 'What!' And he repeated it. I said
what again and he said, 'Well you know, you know.' So I said,
'O.K., Ill go.'
"The boy had run up against a drum and had ruptured
something and everything had gone into the outer edema, the
outer skin.I saw that and said, 'The only thing to do is to
puncture it and draw it off.'
"When I went to Manchester in 1946 Abbot Bertram picked
me up in Boston at the South Street Station and took me to
St.Anselm's Abbey. We had supper and went to the recreation
roqm. He introduced me to the community. He gave a long
speech about me and he said, 'I want you to know he's an expert
on fizzlers.' "


Fr. Cornelius soon became involved in saving mothers who had
complicated deliveries. He described a case in Deadman's Cay
where no one would work for a Catholic Priest and where no one
would rent or sell property to the church. They finally bought a
building through Andrew Reif, a Hungarian who was living in
Nassau.
One day he was repairing the roof of his building when a
woman came running to him for help. Her sister was having a
difficult delivery. It was thought she was dying.
It was a very complicated delivery but he saved the woman and
the child.
"That was it," wrote Father. "Then the doors were open and
within a year and a half we had over fifty Catholics there. That
was the key to the door there's no question about it."
So much for Fr. Cornelius.
*******************
It is interesting to recall that Fr. Gabriel Roerig, O.S.B. was the
first Catholic Priest in the Bahamas to receive an award from the
Sovereign. He was given an M.B.E.
Fr. Gabriel was the second Priest to come to the Bahamas
mission which was established by the Very Rev. Chrysostom
Schreiner, O.B.E. in February 1891. This pioneer was later named
Catholic Missionary to the Bahamas by His Eminence Cardinal
Hayes, Archbishop of New York.
Fr. Chrysostom worked alone until June 4, 1894 when he was
joined by Fr. Gabriel who, for the next 55 years, literally buried
himself in a small settlement in Andros Island where he spent the
rest of his life and worked under the most primitive conditions.
Fr. Gabriel also performed operations. Perhaps his most
interesting operation was performed with a carpenter's hammer
and chisel.
One day a man came to him with an infected big toe. Gangrene
had already set in. There was absolutely no transportation to
Nassau in those days and so Father had to act quickly to save this
man from blood poisoning. He quickly made a decision.
Giving the man money he sent him to a grog shop to buy a
bottle of rum.
He pouted out a half of the rum and gave it to the man to
drink. He then poured the balance of the rum over the infected
toe ... and with hammer and chisel struck off the toe with one
blow.
The man was mad with Father for wasting so much good rum
on his toe. He felt it would have served much better in his
stomach rather than on a rotten old toe!
Such was life in the Out Islands in the early days of pioneering
in this then remote and unknown out post of the British Empire.

Would you believe it ... Fr. Cornelius and other men who have
given their lives to serving the Bahamian people under the most
difficult conditions are now often made to feel that they are no
longer needed or wanted in the Bahamas. This is the new
Bahamas.!
A THOUGHT FOR TODAY


Oft in danger oft in woe,
Onward, Christians, onward go.-1


HENRY WHITE


: a cloak for dictatorship


become a dictatorship by
forcing on the people policies
with which the people never
agreed and by refusing to allow
the voice of the people's
Representatives to be heard in
the determination of those
policies.
Furthermore, there are
occasions when not only
consultation with the
Representatives is called for
but also public discussion so
that the people can express
their opinion and perhaps
influence policy decisions of
their Government.
A few of the leaders of the
PLP, including Prime Minister
Pindling, sometimes act as if
they have forgotten all this or
have ceased to care about it.
They seem to believe that once
they have the power they can
dish out whatever they like and
the people will swallow it in
the name of party loyalty.
Representatives and even
Cabinet Ministers must bow to
the will of one man or a few
men or face political
annihilation if they should
have the courage to do
otherwise.
In the House of Assembly
this week, Mr. Edmund Moxey,
Parliamentary Secretary and
Representative for the Grove,
told the leaders of his party
and his Government that after
six years of such arrogant
behaviour on their part he had
finally reached the stage where
he had to consider whether he
should continue to serve.
TOOK COURAGE
Now Mr. Moxey might be a
little late in taking his stand
but no-one can deny that it
took courage on his part to
speak out as he did. There are
those in the PLP who will now
brand him as a trouble-maker, as
a dissident or even as a traitor

and they will try to make his
political life as miserable as
possible.
They will tell him that he
was right but that he should
not have said what he said in
public. They might even tell
him that he had no right to
complain at all. Some will see
this as an opportunity to take


his job as Parliamentary
Secretary and some will even
be telling the Maximum Leader
to drop Mr. Moxey and
nominate one of them for
Coconut Grove in the next
general election.
The best that could come
out of all this would be for Mr.
Moxey to come to that painful


conclusion that there is no
more democracy in the PLP,
that the PLP which he and
others fought to bring to
power in 1967 no longer exists,
that the Leader he once had
such great confidence in no
longer deserves that
confidence.
Politics in the PLP has been


reduced to the level of one big
hustle for position, for status,
for glory and even for personal
fortune. The sad thing is that
while all this is going on the
people suffer. They suffer
because their business is
neglected, as the Prime
Minister admitted in his speech
before the PLP Convention.


and a happy new year!

They suffer because the will to
dispense patronage is greater
than the need to provide
competent Government. They
suffer because their
hard-earned tax money is being
wasted on such scandalous
projects as the Abac6 Road.
It was back in 1968 when
the reputation of the country
and the PLP Government was
seriously damaged over the
Benguet affair. Prime Minister
Pindling was approached by
the Grand Bahama Port
Authority and asked whether
he would approve the sale of
majority stock-holding to
Benguet. He said yes. Not only
did he say yes, but an official
Government press release was
published to the effect that he
had said yes.
Then the story took a nasty
turn. The Prime Minister got
up on the floor of the House of
Assembly and said that the
Government had not approved
of the stock transfer!
The Prime Minister had
not consulted with his
parliamentary colleagues
before making his original
decision. It was whispered that
even some of his Cabinet
Ministers knew nothing about
it, that it was only mentioned
to some of them at a casual
Satruday afternoon meeting.
BLUNDER
The Prime Minister had not
taken into consideration an
agreement which existed giving
the Government the option to
purchase some of the Port
Authority, stock in the event of
a transfer. This massive blunder
on the part of Mr. Pindling did
untold damage to the
reputation of the Government
and seriously damaged
confidence in the country.
It led to protracted and
bitter exchanges between the
Government and the Port and,
in 1969, the passage of a Bill
unilaterally amending the
Hawksbill Creek Agreement.

TO THE POINT.....


From Page 3
The rest of the story is
well-known. Freeport declined.
The economy of the country
declined. Hundreds of millions
of dollars which the Prime
Minister himself had said was
ready to come into the country
was frightened away.
Then, of course, there was
the sad tale of Bahamas


Airways. The Government had
negotiated the takeover of
Bahamas Airways by a group
of investors wilo promised to
upgrade the airline, undertake
long-haul routes and to leave it
open for the Government to
pick up stock in the airline as
soon as it became
profitable. The Prime
Minister himself led the

negotiations which included a
commitment on the part of the
Government to reserve certain
routes for the airline. But one
day the new owners read in the
newspapers that some of those
same routes had been granted
to another airline which was
hardly yet in existence!
The rest of that story is also
well-known. Some people hope
that time will wash away the
memory of it all but it just
does not work that way. When
confidence is lost it is as
difficult to restore as it is to
put Humpty Dumpty back
together again.
In 1970 the Prime Minister
went on a trip. When he
returned he presented his
colleagues with a document
which he described as One
Man's Manifesto. It was the
ultimate insult by a Leader to
grown men in a supposedly
democratic party. Some of his
colleagues told him so but that
did not prevent him from
dropping it on the 1970 PLP
Convention without so much
as a change in one sentence!
Incidentally, it was in that
document that the Prime
Minister first mentioned his
attitude towards casino
gambling and the possibility of
nationalization by the
Government. This policy has
now been adopted and
promulgated by the PLP
Government without
consultation with the people
and even, according to Mr.
Moxey, without consultation
with the Government's own
supporters in Parliament!
Now Mr. Moxey may or may
not agree with nationalization
and members of the public
may or may not agree. But that
is not the point. The point is
that Mr. Pindling and his
Government have declared
their intention to stuff it down
the throats of the
Representatives and the public
whether they agree or not.
That is the type of arrogance
which is ruining the democratic
process in this country and
making of the PLP a popular
cloak for creeping dictatorship.
Mr. Moxey may have done the
country a service by speaking
out even at this late hour. It
remains to be seen whether the
people will seek light before
they are enveloped in total


Why government should not operate casinos


EDITOR, The Tribune
WHY Government should
not operate Casinos.
THE ANNOUNCEMENT
that government proposes to
take over the operation of
casinos in the Commonwealth
has been received with shock
and surprise by many in our
community. Now, this is a
matter of major importance
which is of concern to every
thinking Bahamian at this time
in the development of our new
nation. And, while the further
clarification issued by the
Deputy Prime Minister and
Minister of Finance has been
helpful, there are still
important moral, social
disciplinary and economic
considerations which militate
strongly against operation of
these gambling enterprises by
our government. These are
brought into sharp focus by a
few questions which are bound
to arise in the minds of those
who think seriously about this
matter.
First, were the moral and
spiritual leaders of the nation
consulted before this decision
was made? Gambling, after all,
involves moral questions of
tremendous significance. And
since the Church is an integral
part of our community, surely
the spiritual leaders should
have been consulted by
government in dealing with this
matter. The president of the
Bahamas Christian Council, the
Bishop of the Anglican Church.
the Bishop of the Catholic
Church, the Chairman of the
Methodist Church and other
spiritual leaders in our
community need to be
consulted by our leaders of
State in matters involving
moral issues.
It was the late Archbishop
Temple who reminded us that
gambling with its "get rich
quick" motivation is opposed
to the spirit of sacrifice and
giving which is at the very
heart of the Christian
revelation.
And, this brings us to the
second question. Has
Government considered the
possible demoralizing effects of
its operation of gambling
enterprises upon the Bahamian
people, especially its youth?
Now, we are in the process


of "Building a Better
Bahamas". We would like to
excel through love and unity
And to show the world that
ours is among the "great little
nations" of this post-colonial
era.
In order to do this, it is
essential that we inspire our
youth with ideals of virture,
honesty, hard work and pride
in themselves and their
country. But how can we do
this if Government itself is
involved in the operation of
gambling enterprises? Will this
not only lead to the attitude
(already too prevalent among
some of our young people!)
that they can get much for
nothing?
A few days. ago, I was
shocked to see a number of
young men (obviously
unemployed) sitting around in
broad daylight gambling. Can
we preach to such young
people the necessity of hard
work for the sake of the
growth of the nation? In short,
it is difficult to inculcate the
habits that lead to nation
building (hard work, virtue)
among young people anxious
"to get rich" by means of
gambling.
It is precisely for this reason
also that the Numbers racket
should be not legalized as is
suggested by some politicians
in our midst. Government must
be more responsible than to
legalize gambling simply
because "everyone is doing it".
This is not the way to build a
strong nation.
Thirdly, "Has Government
considered the tremendous
problems involved in the
honest operation of casinos?"
operation of casinos?" It i,
well-known that certain
criminal elements tend to be
attracted to areas where
cansinos are operated. In
operating casinos Government
runs a double risk on the one
hand the reputation of the
country can be tarnished if
criminal elements are found to
be involved in any way in the
operation of these gambling
concerns; on the other hand, it
is difficult to conceive how
Government can more


effectively control crime or
undesirable elements by
operation than by supervision
through an impartial
Government agency such as the
present Gaming Board.
Fourthly "Has
Government considered that
the operation of these huge
gambling enterprises can prove
to be un-economic?" It is good
to hear that there will be not
"nationalization" of the assets
of these concerns. On the other
hand, if Government will have
to take over responsibility for
the payment of staff,
maintenance, etc., one wonders
if it will prove to its advantage
to operated them from a
purely economic standpoint.
Would it not be far more
sensible for the experienced
gambling concerns to operate'
these casinos and for
Government to continue to tax
their profits?
And those who think that
the operation of gambling
concerns can solve the
country's economic problems
need consider Jamaica's
experience in the operation of
its National Lottery. Quite
apart from the demoralizaing
effects it had on the country, it
did not prove to be such an
economic boon as was
expected by its promoters. A
few months ago it was
abolished by the present
government under the dynamic
leadership of Prime Minister
Michael Manley. And there are
people here who want us to
legalize gambling and run a
National Lottery!!!
Finally, let us remember
that in our Constitution it is
laid down that our country is
to operate on principles of
"Democracy, Christianity and
the Rule of Law."
If we must have gambling
(and the belief of the writer is
that we can do without it) then

TrpI c

Extrintr


,let private concerns dedicated
to this way of life run them
but not our government;
government can be far more
effective in the control and
policing of casinos than in the
operation of them.
And, can we reconcile the


ideals of democracyc,
christianity and the rifle of
law" with the operation of
casinos by the government
elected by the people for the
benefit of us all.

DEAR ABBY: Last summer I met a woman I'll call
"Dotty" at a housewares show. We had booths near each
other, and were instantly attracted to one another. I'm a
42-year-old married man, but the fire had gone out of my
marriage a long time ago. Dotty is 40. She said she and her
husband were on the verge of splitting up.
We had an exciting thing going for the duration of the
convention, but I never made her any promises.
After I got home, Dotty started calling me at work
every day. She even came to my town to see me several
times! Now she says she's in love with me, is divorcing her
husband, and wants to marry ME! Abby, I am not in love
with this woman and divorce never entered my mind. I
have three children and Dotty has two. She's talking about
telling her husband and my wife about "us." That's the last
thing I want.
I admit she's physically exciting, but I don't want to
break up my home for her. I've been so nervous lately, my
wife keeps asking me what's wrong. How do I get out of
this mess? JUMPY CLUTCH
DEAR JUMPY: Tell Dotty It was just a summer ro-
mance and you're not a man for all seasons. If she's
serious about telling your wife and her husband, you'd be
ahead to tell your wife and start furnishing the doghouse.
What Dotty's husband will do is worry number two. If
you're lucky, Dotty will let you off the hook and disappear,
after which you should Jkeep your mind on your business
when you go to the housewares show.

DEAR ABBY: I am a salesman in a retail store. There
is a small matter with the lady customers which has been
bothering me.
Now that women are wearing pants suits, many forget
to zip up their flies, and they come into the store with
their flies open. It's easy for one man to say to another:
"Hey, Buddy, your fly is open."
But how does a gentleman tell a strange lady her fly
is open? AGAPE IN COLORADO
DEAR AGAPE: If you lack the courage to tell a
stranger her fly is open, tell a female clerk with whom
you are better acquainted, and let her tell her.

DEAR ABBY: Recently our pet dog, a 60-pound Ger-
man shepherd, dug her way out of our backyard, and was
returned to us the same afternoon by two teen-age boys.
These boys found her about six blocks from our home.
Since the dog had no leash, the boys had to hold her by her
collar [which bore our address] and walk her home, mostly
uphill.
I gave each boy a dollar for his trouble. My wife and
children [both teen-agers] felt that I had cheapened and
demeaned the boys' good deed by giving them money. They
compared it to returning a lost child, while I thought it was
closer to returning a lost wallet.
What is your opinion? F. M.
DEAR F. M.: I think a reward was in order, assuming
you didn't force It on the boys over their protests.
Hate to write letters? Semd $1 to Abby, Box M7*, Lo

APPEALING
CONVICTION
A MACKEY Street cook,

the amount of $1,000 for three
years for the August 5 stabbing
of her gardener husband just
two weeks ago, has filed appeal
against the decision of a High

13 years ago. In latter years the
school has greatly developed


and departmental heads and
subject heads review

"Quite naturally the fully
qualified Staff of the present
large modern school take
offence at amateur meddling
within the area of their
professional competence and
entirely of their own volition
the Staff in its entirely rejected
this interference by a
resurrection of this power of
The Ladies Committee.
"This incident was seen to
be another attempt to meddle
with the professional affairs of
the school. which seems to be a
peculiarity of this particular
Board."
The Board's "vague claims
of 'lack of confidence' and
their questioning Mr. Chaplin's
'professional qualities' "
brought the retort:
"Absolutely without
foundation."
Say the Staff: "The teachers
who work with Mr. Chaplin
and are the only persons in a
position to judge his
professional q qualities,
absolutely support him and see
no reason whatsoever for his
dismissal. It is obvious that it
was the wish of the great
majority of parents that Mr.
Chaplin remain as Headmaster
and it seems that the dismissal
was engineered as the
culmination of a struggle for
power by a small group of
Directors who wished to
undertake close management
of the school as opposed to the
traditional general direction
given by previous Boards, even
to the extent of encroaching
on the area of responsibility of
the Headmaster."
"Mr. Chaplin," say the Staff,
"was a strong Headmaster and
discipline at St. Andrew's was
stricter than other schools" in
which they had worked.
The teachers have labelled as
'absolutely untrue" the
Board's claim that Mr. Chaplin
walked out of his office on
June 29 without hiring a
science teacher for the
September Term. This, the
Board claimed, had been done

by acting headmaster Lew
Morgan.
On August 15 The Tribune
published an interview with
Mrs. Barbara Lester, daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. Leslie
Hammond of Nassau, and a
former teacher at St. Andrew's.
In that interview Mrs. Lester,
now teaching in Miami, told
how she and her teacher
husband had assisted Mr.
Chaplin in locating a science
teacher for St. Andrew's. The
teacher, Miss Rebecca Stein,
joined the Staff in September.
When the accusation was
made against Mr. Chaplin at
the extraordinary general
meeting on August 7, Mr.
Hammond publicly told Mr.
Holowesko that the Board had
given the wrong impression. He
knew for a fact of the efforts
made by Mr. Chaplin, with the
assistance of his daughter, to
recruit a teacher to fill the
vacant science post. Mr.
Holowesko replied that he was
not aware of that and promised
to investigate.
Contacted this week by The
Tribune Mr. Hammond
confirmed that Mr. Holowesko
had telephoned him within the
past two weeks and told him
that upon investigation he had
found that Mr. Hammond's
statement was correct. The
Board had been wrQne.
The Board's claim that Mr.
Chaplin dismissed two teachers
without justification is
"absolutely false", the Staff
charge. And they say:
"A meeting in June 1972
with Staff, Ladies of the
School Committee, Directors
and even young school
secretaries present, was chosen
as a public forum for two
ladies to vent their personal
grudges against the
Headmaster. The meeting was
called to discuss the
functioning of the physical
properties of the school after
one year's operation and the
outburst of these two ladies
was not only disgracefully
unprofessional but irrelevant to
the meeting. Despite this
irrelevancy, the Chairman of
the Board allowed the
outbursts full rein, and ignored
cries of 'shame', 'order' and
'stop' from the remaining
forty-odd members of Staff.
Obviously it suited the
Chairman's purpose to allow
this personal vendetta.
"It was quite obvious to all
the Staff that these two ladies
could no longer remain at St.
Andrew's after their hysterical
attack and it came as no
surprise to learn that they had
been required to leave.
"By contrast the Staff were
shocked to learn that the
Board had overruled the
Headmaster and completely
undermined his authority by
reinstating the two ladies
concerned. As a result the Staff
wrote a letter to the Board
deploring the conduct of the
two ladies and affirming
complete support for the
Headmaster.
"As usual," the staff say,
"this letter was completely
ignored by the Board and no
reply was ever received."
ANGRY STAFF
The Staff were angered that
one of the women teachers,
who, they say, had a personal
grudge against Mr. Chaplin, and
who, they claim, had
approached a colleague about a
year ago and declared that "her
entire effort in 1972-73 would
be devoted tL engineering the

dismissal of the Headmaster",
was flown back from Europe
during her summer vacation to
testify against the Headmaster
at the shareholders meeting.
Many shareholders later
admitted that, not knowing the
background, they were
influenced by this teacher.
The teachers pointed out
that in all of Mr. Chaplin's 19
years at the school he never
attended a shareholders
meeting because he thought it
improper to do so. "Yet," they
slam, "when it suited the
Board they actually allowed
the only two teachers known
to oppose Mr. Chaplin to
attend a meeting of
Shareholders."
Those two women, the Staff
say, used the shareholders
meeting, "and so were not
present on August 7 to defend
themselves and their
Headmaster against the
accusations of these two
women."
AWARD OF MONEY
On July 3 Mr. Holowesko
told The Tribune that the


Board had informed Mr.
Chaplin that he and his wife
would receive a full term's
extra salary, in addition to a
bonus of over $30,000 in
appreciation for long service.
The $30,000 was more than
equal to the combined yearly
salary of Mr. and Mrs. Chaplin,
Mr. Holowesko said.
"Much has been made of an
award of money made to Mr.
Chaplin by the Board in an
attempt to make it sound like a
generous separation award,"
the Staff state, and they reveal:
"The award is based upon
a firm agreement with the
Board and upon a strict
formula.
"It relates to the years
prior to 1970 and was not
understood to be dependent
upon the goodwill of the
Board.
"The money is in lieu of a
pension fund which is operated
by almost all institutions but
not St. Andrew's.
"The money relates to 15
years of pensionable service
prior to 1970.
"The amount stated by

the Board relates to both Mr.
and Mrs. Chaplin a point
glossed over by the Board.
e "The total award amounts
to well under one thousand
dollars each per year of service
prior to 1970 and including
salary due.
"The agreed formula and
award of money has already
been paid to several teachers,
so precedents have been set.
"The money was payable
in any circumstance and has


nothing to ao with the
softening of an abrupt
dismissal.
"Despite Holowesko's public
avowal of the Board's
generosity in this matter he has
in fact used this sum as a
bargaining factor to obtain the
Headmaster's silence and
withdrawal from the company
and it will be interesting to see
whether the full amount as
promised to the Staff will in
fact be paid."

Henry Wiggen (MICHAEL
MORIARTY), ace pitcher for
the N.Y. Mammoths, has been
asked by his team roommate,
"loser" catcher Bruce Pearson
(ROBERT DE NIRO), to come
from New York to the Mayo
Clinic and drive him home to
Georgia prior to spring
training. Henry is
rapidly becoming a sports
superstar he is a successful
author and insurance salesman
between innings: he is fashion
conscious: he is a favourite
with the fans; he has a beautiful
wife (HEATHER MAC RAE);
he very much likes being a
major league baseball star. The
"farm" boy from Georgia lacks
all of Henry's sophistication --
he falls in love with the wrong
girls, chews tobacco, is
unlettered, dumb and dying.
While Bruce and Henry relax
at the Pearson home, playing
the team's favourite card game
"T.E.G.W.A.R.," fishing and
enjoying the rural atmosphere
with Bruce's parents, all carry
the unspoken knowledge that
Bruce could soon die.
At the training camp, his
contract still unsigned, Henry
hears of plans to send Bruce
down to the farm team.
Keeping the fact of Bruce's
illness from the team and

owners, Henry agrees to sign a
contract for less money than
was his original hold-out figure,
on the condition that any place
Bruce goes, he goes.
The Mammoths are having a
difficult time. They "rag" and
fight one another, never really
responding to manager Dutch
Schnell's (VINCENT
GARDENIA) pep talks and
pleas to "pull together." What
bothers Schnell almost as much
as the team dissension is
Henry's sudden concern for the
"plumb dumb catcher". The
manager intermittently
subjects Bruce and Henry to
complicated interrogations and
eventually hires a detective.
Bruce encouraged by Henry,
begins to improve his
ballplaying. He proposes to
Katie (ANN WEDGEWORTH),
the girl everybody's scored
with. She accepts on condition
that she is named beneficiary
of his $138,000 Arturis life
insurance policy.
While Henry is trying to
protect Bruce against the
team's "ragging" and Katie, he
finally takes another player
into his confidence. Soon,
coach Joe Jaros (PHIL
FOSTER), a constant heckler
who refuses to play
"T.E.G.W.A.R." with Bruce
and calls the roomates "Romeo
and Juliet," also learns the
secret.

In Death Rides a Horse, a

massacres a family, while
young Bill looks on. Fifteen
years later. Bill (John Phillip
Law) prepares to avenge the
brutal slaying. At the same
time, Ryan (Lee Van Cleef) is
released from prison. Hie had
been one of the gang, but
disapproved of the killings. He
was later framed and sent to
jail. Now he, too, is out to
eradicate the same gang. Ryan
and Bill strike up a
quasi-father-son relationship,
but each wants to work
independently of the other.
However, it is Ryan who saves
Bill from being killed on
numerous occasions. They
finally team up for the final
climax.
In Hong Kong Cat
Meng-liang who was skilled in
martial arts, accompanied his
mother to Yu-men Port to look

Community Development
Association.
The event held at the
Marine Dining Room of the
Britannia Beach Hotel, Paradise
Island, was under the
patronage of Mr. and Mrs.
George W. Mackey. The
welcome address was given by
Mr. James Wood, chairman of
the association, after which
Mrs. Alfreda Butler, vice
chairman, gave the invocation.
Tributes were paid the two
great entertainers by Mr.
Clement Maynard, Minister of
Tourism, and Mr. Duke Hanna,
president of the Bahamas

respective organizations.
Individual tributes were made
to Mr. Taylor by the Hon.

the House of Assembly, and to
Mr. Chipman by outstanding
local pianist Mr. George
Moxey, A.T.C.L.
A special tribute was made
by radio personality Mary
Kelly to Mr. Taylor

there. My brother Freddy couldn't come,"
says ferdy Fox, so I've brought Bingo along
to take his place." Then they all troop to
the spot where the Cake Race is to start.
" Good, everything is ready," says Roger,
handing each a plate. "The dozen cakes


came this morning, Rupert, and I've hidden
them in different parts of the village. The idea
is that you look for them, and the one who
finds most wins all twelve cakes." How long
may we search ?" asks Rupert. I'll give
you until the village clock strikes three,"
Roger tells him. Then you must all come
back here."


Rupert and the Cake Race-12


There is a buzz of excitement among Rupert
and his chume as they line up for the race.
Roger stand beside them with a handkerchief
raised. I'll count three," he says. But you
muat wait for the word 'Go I'" The little
people poIse themeves as Roger begins to
count slowly. "Stop jostling me, Ferdy,"
matW s Aly. There's plenty of room --


" Go !" Just then the handkerchief falls and
the race is on. Away dash the chums, but
almost at once Bill and Reggie drop their
plates and by the time they have picked them
up the others are ahead. Where shall I
search first I thinks Rupert, running his
hardest.

Wilson warns



the Lions

By IVAN JOHNSON


"WE'RE GOING to put the
Lions under some more
pressure than they've been
under this season," said
McAlpine coach Dick Wilson
this morning as he spoke about
his team's preparation for
tomorrow's game against Red
Lion.
Last week the Lions
established themselves as the
best team in the League when
they beat a talented Paradise
side 5-3. Earlier in the season
they defeated defending league
champions, Tropigas 2-1
Wilson, recently appointed
Bahamian national team coach
feels McAlpine, last year's
league runnersup. can upset the
Lion machine.
"The boys realize that this
will probably be the most
important game for them this
season and if they can get past
this one we should do great
things this season." he said
"The Lions forte lies in a
very good attack supported by
a fine midfield trio and that's
exactly where we are going to
pressurize them."
"Whitfield, Knight and
Maples will find that they
won't have as much space to
manoeuvre in as they've had in
previous games and our
midfield trio. Baptiste. Jenner
and Haywood can match
Seville. Parnell and Stewart."
added Wilson.
"Tomorrow we will be
fielding two new players who
will undoubtedly strengthen
the side
"In goal we will have the
experienced Steve Dale and
striker Peter Moore will be
joining Lawler and Simpson iup
front."
The Lions, however, are
bubbling over with confidence


and the McAlpine defence, F
Crozicer. Willia"' '. hi'.n, and
Lever will shed a few pounds if
they are to keep the elusive
Lions attack, which has scored
seven goals in two gaines, in
check
Fans have only seen
McAlpine once this season and
that was against lowly i
Dynamos.
McAlpine won comfortably
4-0 and although they were
never tested showed that they
will be among the top
contenders for the League title
again this year.
Newcomer Jim Lawler
celebrated his debut with a
hat trick and Ray Simpson
gave glimpses of his ability to
put half chances into the net L
In tact. Simpson's powerful.
accurate shooting from
anywhere within 35 yards
might well be a deciding factor
in tomorrow's game.
In the second 1xi of the
afternoon Tropigas meet St.

tirst round and by the end ot
that period it was evident that
Bell was on his way out.
Pat Currey, manager of
popular light heavyweight
Bobby Lloyd, was amazed at
how rapidly Barr has
progressed. To him. Barr is
progressing at a far greater pace
than welterweight King Elisha
Obed.
"If Bell had been my fighter.
1 would have thrown in the
towel in the first round,"
Currey said. "I would compare
last night's fight to the beating
Frazier took from Foreman in
the first round."
A stiff left jab to Barr's jaw
in the opening moments of the
fight staggered him forcing him
in the clinch. Barr however
recovered beautifully and
struck back with left jabs.
It was a volley of lefts and
rights that changed the scene in
favour of Barr midway in the
first round. Barr then was
hitting almost at will.
Wobbly on his feet. Bell
staggered to his corner at the


Billy Bremner, captain of

Leeds recovered after
trailing 0-1 at half-time. They
now have 30 points from 18
games.
Liverpool. last season's
English champions, scraped
through to a 1-0 win over
lowly West Ham and moved
into second place with 24
points.
Newcastle, Burnley and
Everton all have 22 and share
third place. Everton went
down 0-2 at Southampton and
Newcastle and Burnley did not
play.
The ground at Leed's Elland
Road staduim was iron-hard


sound of the bell.
The second round saw no
change in Barr's attack. He
rushed his man throwing solid
punches. It was a fierce punch
to Bell's jaw that sent him
helpless to the canvas. Referee
Nelson Chipman stopped the
fight.
"Barr was determined to
prove a point that he had a
punch and was determined to
use it," said manager
Goldstein. "Bell didn't have a
chance against the guy. Barr
was a tiger in there,"
Local trainer middleweight
champ Rennie Pinder was
pleased with his performance.
"He takes instructions well."

goalkeepers in Britain, made a

Davis Cup to go ahead


MONTEVIDEO, The
Brazilian and South African
Davis Cup teams will face each
other December 14 to 16 on
the courts of the Carrasco
Lawn Tennis Club here.
The matches previously were
postponed from this weekend
after Argentina protested
against South Africa's inclusion
in the South American zone of
the playoffs.
Argentina attacked South
Africa's policy of racial


apartheid and earlier refused to
compete in sports against
South Africa.
A Carrasco Club source said
all problems connected with
the dispute have been solved.
The Davis Cup committee
meeting in Paris earlier this
month decided in South
Africa's favour and warned
that it would disqualify any
country from competition that
refused to play against other
countries. (AP).
