WRIT OF ELECTION SHOULD HA VE BEEN ISSUED BY NOVEMBER 25.


RECOMMENDATIONS F MEDICAL

COUNCIL IGNORED, DESPITE PROTESTS


Can govt.call election in St.Barnabas? ew Medical Bllto
vi r minietia f ull il


By MIKE LOTHIAN
THE GOVERNMENT has delayed the St. Barnabas
by-election too long and cannot now call the election
without seemingly being in breach of the Constitution
of the Bahamas.
By failing to issue the writ of election by November 25 the
Government has become trapped between the Constitution and
provisions of the Representation of the People Act. The
requirements of one can no longer be fulfilled without conflicting


with the other.
Section 67, subsection three
of the 1973 Constitution
declares that "whenever any
person vacates his seat as a
member of the House of
Assembly for any reason other
than a dissolution of
Parliament, the Governor-Gen-
eral shall issue a writ for the
election of a member to fill the
vacancy and such election shall
be held within sixty days after
the occurrence of the
vacancy."
Sinclair Outten, who was
elected to the St. Barnabas seat
during the general elections last
September, vacated the seat by
letter to House Speaker
Arlington Butler on October
30.
The Constitutional 60-day
deadline expires on December
29, just 25 days from today.
Bu! Section 28, subsection


one of the Representation of
the People Act states that
"upon the occurrence of a
vacancy in the House of
Assembly whilst in session, the
Speaker shall send a message to
the Chief Secretary
(Governor-General) requesting
the issue of a writ of election."
Subsection three goes on:
"Upon receipt of the
Speaker's message the Chief
Secretary (Governor-General)
shall as soon as practicable
issue a writ of election for the
election of a member for the
constituency for which the
vacancy has occurred, and
there shall be not less than
thirty-five nor more than
forty-five days between the
issue of the writ of election
and the return of that writ."
To comply with the time
limits imposed by the Act and


CONSTITUTION PROVIDES

ELECTION WITHIN 60 DAYS

OF VACANCY OF SEAT


by the Constitution, the writ
of election should have been
issued no later than November
25 35 days before the
December 29 expiration of the
Constitutional deadline.
No writ has yet been issued.
There were unconfirmed
reports that the writ might be
issued tomorrow ten days
too late.
It would appear that there
are only three avenues of
escape from this Constituti6nal
dilemma.
The Government could
move an amendment to the
Constitution to either lengthen
or delete entirely the 60-day
time limit imposed by Section
67. However the section is an
"entrenched" provision and
amendment would require a
three-quarters majority vote in
both the House and the Senate,
followed by a ratifying


referendum.
The Government could
propose an amendment to the
Representation of the People
Act to shorten the time-lag
between the issue of a writ of
election and the return of the
writ. But amending a law to
avoid breaking that law could
constitute a dangerous
precedent.
Finally, as it was Mr.
Outten's candidacy, and not
the September St. Barnabas
election itself, that was held
invalid, the FNM's I. G.
Stubbs, who polled the second
largest number of votes in the
constituency after Mr. Outten,
could petition the Supreme
Court for an order that he is
lawfully entitled to sit in the
House as the representative for
St. Barnabas.
Normally such a petition
would go before a specially
constituted Elections Court,
but the Elections Court has

-FIRST TO-

SIGHT NEWV

COMET?
A RESIDENT of the Eastern
Road, Joseph Johnson of JS.
Johnson and ('omlpally
Limited, saw the comet
Kohoutek this morning at
3.25.
He is believed to be the first
person in the Bahamas to see
Kohoutek, which some
scientists have dubbed 'The
Comet of the Century."
Lying in his bed in his home
near Blackbeard's Tower lie
said he saw the "quite bright'"
comet about 20 degrees off the
horizon in the east southeast
quarter.
"There was not much tailto
it, but it was quite bright in the-
sky about twice as bright as a
star. You can't miss it." said
Mr. Johnson who viewed it
through binoculars.
He said he has a telescope
and will be setting it up now
that he has seen Kohoutek so
that he can view the
spectacular tail streaming out
behind it when it puts on its-
pyrotechnics during the middle
of January.
This is not the first comet
Mr. Johnson has seen. About
two years ago he saw one in
about the same direction. "It
was smaller, but its tail was-
much longer," he said.
He also remembers Halley's-
comet which was seen in
Nassau in the early part oflhis-
century.


STARGAZERS throughout
the Bahamas will see twc=
eclipses in the new year. TheyL,
make up four partial and tota 1
eclipses of the sun and moor-
occurring in 1974.
A partial eclipse of the sur-I
on December 13, 1974 will be
visible at Nassau between 9.2:2
a.m. and 12.12 p.m., Easterr-


jurisdiction only for the six
months following the election
in d dispute.
If Mr. Stubbs was unwilling
to seek the order, any St.
Barnabas voter could do so.
And if the petition was granted
and Mr. Stubbs declined to
take the seat, then a
by-election could be called,
because the Constitutional
60-day period would start
running the day Mr. Stubbs
declined.
The whole dilennma has
arisen out of Mr. Outten's
August 31 announcement that
in J uly he had learned from his
father that he, the M.P., was
not Bahanmian-born as he had
always believed, but in fact had
been born in the Turks and
Caicos Islands and had been
brought to the Bahamas as an
infant.
Mr. Outten sought Speaker
Butler's guidance on his course
of action.
SPEAKER'S RULING
The Speaker prepared a
thorough legal study of the
situation and came to the
conclusion that Mr. Outten as a
non-Bahamian was not
qualified either to have been a
candidate or to have been


elected.
He sent his ruling to Mr.
Outten, who as a result
resigned his seat on Oct. 30.
The Speaker announced the
resignation the following day
and officially informed the
Governor-General on Nov. 9.
Mr. Outten, meanwhile, had
applied for naturalisation and
he was granted Bahamian
citizenship early last month.
He then sought and won the
PLP's nomination to contest
the anticipated by-election.
But Clyde Gardiner and W.
N. Heastie, both PLP stalwarts,
also wanted the nomination,
and both are considering
breaking ranks and running as
independents.
Both have said that the PLP
supporters in St. Barnabas are
disenchanted with Mr. Outten
over the citizenship issue.
The PLP Government, it is
thought. have delayed having
the by-election called in the
hopes of patching up the
potential split. It is thought
that party leaders overlooked
the Constitutional deadline,
taking into consideration only
the Act which says the election
should be called "as soon as
practicable.'

NASSAI FREEPORT


The announcement came
shortly after midnight,
following a meeting of a
"Council of Trade Unions"
recently formed for the
specific purpose of deciding
whether to field a labour
candidate in the election.
The council meeting
followed an abortive attempt
earlier Monday night to have
an estimated 500 unionists
representing five major trade
unions choose a candidate for
themselves.
The council, made up of
executives from the Hotel and
Catering Workers Union, the
Engineering and General
Union, the Brewery, Dairy and
Distillers Union, the Musicians
and Entertainers Union and the
Airport, Airline and Allied
Workers Union together
representing an estimated
15,000 workers decided in a
meeting at Taxico Union Hall
on Sunday that organised
labour should contest the St.
Barnabas seat.
The seat was left vacant by
the October 30 resignation of
the PLP's Sinclair Outten.
CHOICE OF 3
The council was considering
three people as possible labour
candidates: former St.
Barnabas M.P.. former Labour
Minister and labour leader
Randol Fawkes; EGU president
Dudley Williams; and Hotel
Union president David
Knowles.
Mr. Fawkes was eliminated
by his failure to appear at the
general meeting last night at
Garfunkel Auditorium and by
the low rating he got in a
sample poll of St. Barnabas
voters conducted by a
committee of unionists on
Sunday.
At the Garfunkel meeting
last night which was closed to
the public a number of
union leaders addressed the
crowd of workers, who
subsequently gave their
unanimous endorsement to
the proposal that they abandon
party allegiance and support a
labour candidate.
The unionists were then
asked to ratify either Mr.
Knowles or Mr. Williams.
Those supporting the EGU
man were told to gather on the
western side of the auditorium,


those favouring Mr. Knowles to
the east.
MAJORITY, BUT -
It quickly became apparent
that Mr. Knowles had the
majority support three-to-one.
But Mr. Williams' supporters
grumbled that the voting
favoured Mr. Knowles because
most of the workers present
were hotel workers.
Hotel Union chief organiser
Thomas Bastian, chairman of
the council, ruled the voting
inconclusive and called an
immediate meeting of council
members at the Hotel Union
offices in the Taxico building
on Wulff Road.
In that meeting it was felt,
in retrospect, that any such
general voting as had occurred
earlier that night would always
favour Mr. Knowles, for the
simple reason that the Hotel
Union commands the support
of well over 8,000 workers in
New Providence and is by far
the largest union in the
country
The council therefore
decided to choose the
candidate themselves. In view
of favourable results from the
sample poll taken in the
constituency, it was considered
that of the two men Mr.
Williams was the better known
and the more popular.
The fact that Mr. Knowles is
presently involved in major
contract negotiations with the
Hotel Employers Association,
was also taken into
consideration.
Mr. Williams was therefore
chosen, and Mr. Knowles
volunteered to be his campaign
manager.
Mr. Bastian made the official
announcement to the press at
about 12:10 a.m.
Mr. Williams is married, has
two children, and the family
lives on Arundel Street west.
FNM TO MAKE
STATEMENT
THE FREE National
Movement proposes to issue a
public statement this week
making its position clear on the
issue of casino gambling.
A spokesman for the party
said the FNM is taking a
serious view of the
government's proposal to take
over the casinos from 1978.

over medical profession

By NICKI KELLY
DESPITE VEHEMENT PROTESTS, the government is
proposing to push through a Medical Bill tomorrow that gives the
Minister of Health ultimate control over the medical profession in


the Bahamas.
The Bill, intended to replace
the outdated Medical
Practitioner's Act, was tabled
for first reading last week by
Health Minister Loftus Roker.
The Tribune understands
however that in doing so Mr.
Roker has ignored the
recommendations of the
Medical Association of the
Bahamas that the practice of
medicine be removed from
political influence.
Under the terms of the Bill
the Minister of Health is
empowered to appoint three of
the seven members of the
Bahamas Medical Council
the body responsible for
judging the qualifications of
doctors seeking registration.
And one of the three
selected by the Minister "need
not be a fully licensed medical
practitioner." says the Bill
A fourth member of the
Council must be the Chief
Medical Officer ex-officio.
The remaining three
members will be appointed
after nomination by the
Medicai Association.
OFFENSIVE
A draft of the Bill was
forwarded to the Medical
Association of thy Bahanmas
more than six months ago. It
was promptly returned wlih
the Association's proposed
amendments, underscoring
particularly its objections to
the composition of the
Council.
Nothing further was heard
until the completed Bill was
tabled on November 28, with
the offensive provision still
intact.
The principle behind
Medical Councils in
Commonwealth countries is
that they should represent the
profession and be free from
political influence.
The doctors contend that
like the legal profession they
are the ones best suited to
police their own members and
not have it left to the whim of
some politician.
While there are other points
of disagreement with the Bill,
these are considered relatively
minor in relation to the matter
of the Council.
Council members, excluding
the Chief Medical Officer, are
to hold office for three years,
with the chairman being
appointed by the Minister.
HIDDEN THREAT
The Minister, however, has
the right to revoke the
appointment of a Council
member at any time. Implicit
in this clause is the hidden
threat that a Council member
must toe the political line or
be thrown out.
In general the Bill seeks to
establish guidelines for the
practice of medicine and
surgery in the Bahamas. At the
same time it will require
payment of an annual fee and
by those medical practitioners
licensed to practice in the
country.
A Medical Registrar will be
responsible for keeping the
necessary particulars pertaining
to those doctors registered
under the Act. The Register will
be open to inspection by any
member of the public at
reasonable times.
To qualify for registration a
person must satisfy the Council
that he can read, write, speak
and understand the English
language: that he is qualified to
be registered and that he is a fit
and proper person to practice
medicine in the Bahamas.
RESTRICTIVE
The Bill is also restrictive in
its designation of those who
will be permitted to practice.
Anyone applying who is not
either a public officer or a
Bahamian citizen will not have
his application approved
without permission of the
Minister responsible for
Immigration.
Anyone who contravenes
the Act, either through


malpractice or misrepresenta-
tion is liable to a fine up to
$1,500 or to imprisonment for
as long as one year.
A complaint lodged against
any medical officer for
improper conduct is to be
made to the Council and
accompanied by pertinent
statements and affidavits.
If the Council feels that
disciplinary action may be
required, it has authority to
appoint a disciplinary
committee comprised of a
Justice of the Supreme Court,
who will act as chairman, and
two other members selected by
the Council from among those
doctors registered and of
comparable professional
standing.
An appeal from the decision
of the disciplinary committee
or against the refusal of the
Council to register, may be
submitted to the Court of
Appeal as if the matter were a
judgment or order of the
Supreme Court.
Any person registered as a
qualified medical practitioner
under the old Act 'iill be
considered as still licensed for a
six-month period following the
date when the new Act
becomes effective.

RU1 MAKERS

WIN TAX

CONCESSION

FROM GOVT.
TIE HOUSE of Assembly
has approved amendment of
the Spirits and Beer
Manufacture Act to ease the
tax burden on the rum
industry.
The action follows an appeal
by the rum makers to
government.
Finance Minister Arthur
Hanna explained last week that
under the existing law
whatever duties were imposed
on liqour were matched with
an automatic, corresponding
increase on the manufacture of
rum in the Bahamas.
"When the tax was raised
last time it was found that it
placed an undue burden on
rum manufacturing, making it
difficult to manufacture rum in
the Bahamas," Mr. Hanna
explained.
Government felt the two
things should be separated.
Under the amendment to the
Spirits and Beer Manufacturing
Act, a tax of $4.80 per proof
gallon is to be imposed on rum
manufactured locally with a
guaranteed rebate of $3.95 of
that tax on rum which is
exported.
GIN, VODKA
This will have the effect of
reducing the present tax or,
rum manufactured and
exported from the Bahamas
from 96 cents to 85 cents per
proof gallon.
Mr. Noel Roberts (FNM-St.
Johns) agreed with the
amendment but noted that an
undue burden was also being
placed on those who
manufactured gin and vodka
here.
"They are two vital
industries, and I don't know
why they have not been
included."
He pointed out that these
industries have had to absorb
the extra duty and were now
losing money.

SAIGON Hundreds of
South Vietnamese planes have

found a suite rented to the
group in shambles.
Hotel employees were called
to investigate after other guests

Roberge said the group
agreed to reimburse the hotel
for all damage incurred and the
hotel would not file charges.
"We are not going to file
charges but it is possible the
police will", he said.
"They were not too happy
with the whole affair.'
A spokesman for the
Montreal police refused to
comment of whether charges
might be brought.
The group, which includes
lead guitarist Peter Townshend,
bass guitarist John Entwistle,
drummer Keith Moon and
singer Roger Daltry, played to
a packed forum audience of
more than 18.000 rock fans.

LABOUR UNREST IN BRAZIL
LONDON Brazil is now experiencing its most serious
industrial unrest and labour shortages since the military seized
power ten years ago, the Guardian newspaper said today.
A despatch by its correspondent Victor Keegan said workers
are increasingly realising they are not sharing in the country's 10
per cent growth rate.
Keegan added: "The government is becoming increasingly
sensitive to external criticism that Brazil's otherwise admirable
economic miracle has been loaded too much in favour of the
rich."
"So far there is no sign that the upsurge of industrial unrest is
in any way linked to organized opposition against the regime. It
appears to be a purely spontaneous response to economic
conditions." (AP).

Grenade blasts



tourist crowd


JERUSALEM A hand grenade exploded
in a crowd near the Church of the Holy
Sepulchre today wounding 18 people among
them five Israeli girl soldiers.

The blast occurred on David Street, a narrow
alley in Jerusalem's old city, 200 yards from
the traditional burial place of Christ.
Although numerous tourists were in the
area, only two foreigners a middle-aged
Romanian couple were injured.
It was the first explosion in the Holy City


for at least a year, and it came amid first
preparations for Christmas.
Hospital authorities said one of the five
uniformed girl soldiers was seriously wounded.
Most of the casualties were rushed by
ambulance to Jerusalem's Shaare Zedek
Hospital and four to a clinic in the old city.
Among the four were a Jewish man and two
Arab boys, all injured slightly. A five-year-old
Arab boy caught a shred of shrapnel between


the eyes and
doctors said.

"Time is not on our side and
delay would be perilous ... we
face the very real probability
of increasing the cases of
disputes between nations
unless agreement is reached,"
he declared in a speech at the
opening session in the UN
General Assembly chamber.
Waldheim said the
conference brought together
the largest number of countries
ever assembled for such an
affair. One hundred forty-eight
nations and organizations were
invited. North Vietnam
announced it was declining in
protest that the Vietcong were
not asked to attend.
After a two-week
organisational meeting in New
York, the conference is
scheduled to reconvene next
June in Caracas, Venezuela,
and probably in 1975 in
Vienna.
Delegates had before them a
proposal to create an
international authority to
license the prospecting and
mining of minerals in the deep
sea floor, with proceeds to be
shared by all nations.
The United States has asked
US firms to wait for such
international licences but
warned this would have to be
reconsidered if the authority is
not in business by 1975.


Territorial limits, fisheries,
navigation and marine
pollution are other subjects
before the conference. It is
expected to produce a treat or
treaties modernizing
centuries-old maritime law and
traditions.
The three-mile territorial
limit still recognized by the
United States probably will be
replaced by a new 12-mile
limit. (AP)

At least 11 of the victims
were women, among them one
with medium injuries and her
year old son, who was slightly
hurt.
The Romanian couple was
identified as Alexander and
Maria Simalovic. They were
slightly injured.
Arab shopkeepers shuttered
their stores and ran from the
scene when the grenade went
off at midday outside a home
appliances shop.
Police moved in, cordoned
off the area and detained 20
Arabs for questioning.
David Street, an alleyway of
stairs, was spattered with blood
from the victims, who were
carried to ambulances in the
arms of passersby. No damage
to property was caused by the
blast.
"I saw the grenade fall," said
shopkeeper Faiz Al-Asmar.
"The people were shouting
'grenade, grenade.'I ran inside
my shop and then there was an
explosion."
Jerusalem Mayor Teddy
Kollek inspected the scene and
said: "I'm sorry this has
happened in Jerusalem,
especially with a peace
conference coming up in
Geneva this month." This was
a reference to Arab Israeli
negotiations scheduled to begin
Dec. 18.
The area was reopened to
the public 30 minutes after the
explosion, but the shops
remained closed.
Tourism to the Holy Land
has improved since the October
war but it would take months

Arabs too willfeel oil pinch


GENEVA Arab and Israeli
officials alike will feel the
pinch of the oil weapon when
and if the Middle East
peace talks begin in Geneva
Dec. 18.
But with the expected
opening just two weeks away,
United Nations and Swiss
officials here were still lacking
official word that Geneva will
be the site.
They said they could not
recall any precedent in which
technical arrangements for a
major international conference
had not gotten off the ground
at such a late stage.
"But it can be done." a
Swiss official said. "Of course,
there will be plenty of
problems, including security."
Space would not rank
among them. Hotels could
easily accommodate more than
a thousand people at this
sluggish pre-Christmas season
and office space is abundant.
The likely site would be the
U.N. headquarters here to
which was added this year a 42


million dollar wing big enough
to house future sessions of the
U.N. general assembly.
Room heating temperatures
in the sprawling complex have
just been ordered to be
lowered to the "minimum level
...providing working comfort."
Fuel oil tanks at the U.N.
headquarters have to be refilled
about every four months but
officials said they were
confident that supplies will be
continued at regular intervals
in spite of the oil crisis.
Average annual consumption is
about 3,000 tons.
Meanwhile in Canberra, the
Australian Government today
imposed export controls on all
petroleum products.
The move is aimed at
enabling the government to
keep track of all bunkering
fuel, aviation fuel and refined
oil going into foreign ships and
aircraft and to stop such
refueling if necessary during
the oil squeeze.

TAPES: SIRICA


SITS IT OUT


IN SOLITUDE

WASHINGTON U. S. District Judge John J. Sirica has begun
the self-imposed job of listening to the White House Watergate
tapes in the solitude of a jury room heavily guarded by marshals.
Only his law Clerk, Todd Christofferson, was in the room as
the 69-year-old judge reviewed the recordings to determine which
ones will eventually go to the Watergate grand jury.


DETROIT Ford Motor
Co. today laid off 22,033
hourly employees at 17 U.S.
plants, most of them
involved in the production
of large Ford and Mercury
cars.
A Ford spokesman said
the layoffs were directly
attributable to a 10-day
strike against Ford-Canada
which has cut off the flow
of engines from the
Windsor, Ont., engine plant.
Production of some light
trucks and a smattering of
other models also was
affected, he said.
Ford said the workers
would not be brought back
to the plants until Canadian
parts were provided.
The spokesman said this
would take a week to 10
days after Canadian workers
ratify their new agreement.
He would not speculate
whether work could resume
at the U.S. facilities before
the regular, weeklong
Christmas holiday.
The Canadian pact was
reached in Toronto today,
and operations were
expected to resume at
Canadian plants on Friday
or Monday. The United
Auto Workers concluded a
separate contract with Ford
last month for its U.S.
workers.
Ford laid off some 2,500
workers last week, citing
parts shortages.
Today's layoffs brought
to nearly 200,000 the
number of auto workers
affected by industry layoffs
in December and January.
Most of the cutbacks were
scheduled to be brief and
are designed to reduce large
car output and retool some
plants to turn out small
cars. (AP)

White House lawyer J. Fred
Buzardt, who prepared an
index and analysis of what the
10 tapes turned over to Sirica
contain, was there briefly
yesterday to show the judge
how to find the start of
conversations on the
subpoenaed tapes.
The White House has asked
that all or part of three tapes
be withheld from the jury "in
order to protect the
confidentiality of advice given
to the president."
To these portions, Sirica will
give particular attention. Once
he has heard them, he will
listen to arguments by the
White House and the special
Watergate prosecutor, then rule
on the issue.
The jury is free to hear four
other conversations that were
subpoenaed because the White
House offered no objection.
The prosecutor's office refused
to say whether those
recordings have already been
submitted to the jurors. (AP)

Ransom paid
MILAN One of the four
people held by kidnappers in
Italy was released here before
midnight Monday after having
reportedly paid a ransom of
300 million lire or half a
million dollars.
Industrialist Aldo Cannavale,
38, was released by abductors
who drove him into Milan by
car at night and let him out
with eyes bandaged near the
Arch of Peace in a downtown
park.
He had been kidnapped 11
days ago in front of his house
in a residential district.
Cannavale said he was kept
in a room with the walls lined
with a deep layer of some
sound-proof plastic. He said he
never saw the kidnappers
except for one hooded man
who brought him food. He said
he also never heard them
speak. (AP).


BRITAIN FACES RAIL GO-SLOW


LONDON Union leaders today ordered
29,000 British rail workers to begin a
slowdown next Wednesday following collapse
of pay negotiations with the state-owned rail
network.
The labour action will include a ban on
overtime and will mean no Sunday trains and
weekday disruptions, especially for the
500,000 commuters from London's southern
suburbs.
Previous rail slowdowns have caused massive
traffic congestion as commuters took to their


cars. This time there could be transportation
paralysis because thousands of service stations
are out of gas due to the Arab oil squeeze and
heavy demand by fearful motorists.
The slowdown and ban on overtime were
ordered by leaders of the Associated Society
of Locomotive Engineers and Firemen, the
most militant of Britain's three rail unions.
The union wants a base pay rate of $96 a
week, while the railway has offered $88.68.
Overtime and bonuses now increase the base
rate by an average 37 per cent. (AP)

New Ulster

chief: My

pledge

BELFAST Britain's new
Northern Ireland
administrator, Francis Pym,
arrived in Belfast today and
came face-to-face with the
grim realities of Ulster life -
Roman Catholic guerilla
attacks and militant Protestant
threats of violence.
He told newsmen: "I pledge
myself to work without fear
and without favour for a time
of peace and greater happiness
for all the people of Northern
Ireland."
Shortly before he landed,
guerillas of the Catholic-based
Irish Republican Army
ambushed a British military
patrol a half-mile from the
border with the Irish Republic
at Killeen.
Military headquarters
reported four troopers were
wounded, two seriously, when
the guerillas detonated a big
landmine. An armoured car
and a jeep were blasted.
Another IRA squad tried to
blow up a police station at
Dundrum, 30 miles south of
Belfast. But officers spotted
the explosives, stuffed inside a
milk churn, and army experts
defused the 150-pound charge.
There were indications that
Protestant extremists were
active again after a two-week
lull in their campaign against
Catholics. Police said a
50-pound bomb was found
outside a Catholic church at
Craigy Hill, near Belfast. It was
neutralised by the army.
Pym's first task was to meet
leaders of hardline Protestant
"Loyalists" demanding to
attend an important
conference to be held near
London Thursday.(AP)

A real danger

By ETIENNE DUPUCH
AN ARTICLE by Barbadian journalist Jimmy Cozi:r in a
recent issue of The Miami Herald appeared under the startling
heading: "West Indies Warned of Cholera Risk."
This is a particularly timely warning when it is recalled that
there was a serious outbreak of cholera in Italy this summer. The
epidemic was traced to infected shell fish in the waters of the
nation.

"Dr. Philip Boyd of the health section of the Caribbean
Community Secretariat charged that inadequate health and
sanitation facilities pose the 'grave risk' of a cholera outbreak in
the West Indies.
"Speaking at a conference of public health inspectors held in
Trinidad," Cozier continued, "Dr. Boyd cited contaminated
water supplies as a major problem and said authorities in the
region have to be ready 'at a moment's notice' to deal with
cholera.
"He noted that gastroenteritis is common in the Caribbean
and that the same factors which contribute to the spread of that
disease also spread cholera."

Dr. Boyd pointed to impure water and inefficient disposal
systems as a real danger to the people in the Caribbean. He
blamed governments for this dangerous condition which he claims
could be corrected at a reasonable cost and that remedies were
"within reach," he declared.

The Bahamas has a health problem that the government would
rather not discuss. But it is here. It is serious. And.
unfortunately it cannot be corrected at a small cost. For this
reason a remedy is not within reach.
The U.B.P. government was aware of the almost complete
breakdown in the sewerage system in Nassau. The waters in the
harbour of Nassau and at bathing beaches in the vicinity of the
populated area of New Providence were already being polluted
when the P.L.P. gained control of the government.
The U.B.P. had a plan for remedying this condition. At the
time the government were faced with two important demands to
meet the steady expansion of the island's activities.
Improved harbour facilities were needed to meet the needs of
the steadily increasing number of giant ocean liners calling at
Nassau.
The second demand was for an improved sewerage system to
cope with the waste of a greatly increased local and tourist
population in the island since the tiny sewerage system was
installed on Potters Cdy nearly a half century ago.
These were both pressing needs. The government could not
finance both of these major schemes at the same time. Indeed, for
the first time in its history the government sought to float a loan
in England. This was denied. They were told that the colony was
prosperous and they could raise the needed money by
introducing income tax.
An approach was then made to Washington ... and they gave
practically the same answer.
It was clear that both the British and American governments
were anxious to remove the Bahamas as a tax haven for escapist
capital that put a heavy drain on the liquid capital of these two
nations.
Luckily for the Bahamas ... at that time the U.S. was
negotiating with the Bahamas government for permission to
establish the AUTEC base at Andros. Up to that time the
Bahamas had given the U.S. government base rights in several
islands in the Bahamas ... from Grand Bahama in the west to
Mayaguana in the southeast ... free of charge.
When Britain and the U.S. failed to make a legitimate loan to
the Bahamas at a time when they were handing out great sums of
money in free gifts to what they described as undeveloped
territories, the U.B.P. government started tightening the screws at
the AUTEC negotiations ... and then the money was quickly
forthcoming from the U.S. by some arrangement with Britain. If I
remember correctly, the Bahamas got a loan ... the U.S. paid
Britain an annual sum of money for the use of the Andros base ...
and this money was used by Britain to liquidate the loan.

The U.B.P. government then had to decide "which came first,
the chicken or the egg"I In this case the harbour or the sewerage
system?
They worked out a plan whereby they would be able to do
both jobs with the money provided in the one loan.
They decided to dredge the harbour to a depth that would
accommodate the largest ships afloat.

When the harbour was first deepened with revenue derived
from the "bootlegging industry" in the 1920's all the valuable fill
from the harbour was pumped across Paradise Island and wasted


in the ocean on the north side of that island. Some of it stayed on
land, of course, and this improved stretches of the beach at the
western end of the island.
It was only after the work had been completed that it was
realized what an awful waste this had been. Had this sand been
pumped on to an open area in New Providence it could have been
used to fill in all the low-lying swamp areas on the island.
When the second dredging operation was undertaken the'
U.B.P. government determined that there would be no waste this
time.
They decided that they would create an island a short distance
off the western foreshore with the sand dredged from the harbour
and that it would be named Kelly Island in honour of Trevor
Kelly who was then the Minister in charge of this operation.
This prime piece of real estate would immediately be sold to
developers at a price sufficiently large to instal an adequate
sewerage system in the island.
By this plan they would achieve three objectives. They would
dredge the harbour ... they would create an island that would
become a great asset to the development of the tourist business ...
and they would instal a sewerage system. All under an
arrangement that would cost the Treasury practically nothing.
The U.B.P. were voted out of office in 1967, shortly before the
harbour operation was completed. The new island was finished.
But the only thing the P.L.P. government seemed concerned
about was that it should not bear the Kelly name. And so it was
renamed Arawak Cay.
Instead of selling this Cay to developers they created some
kind of Customs shed on it at great cost to the Public Treasury.
This unsightly building still stands on this prime piece of real
estate. It is a monument to the complete lack of judgment and
foresight of the government.

Not long ago the government talked about developments for
the Cay. They led the public to believe that they had big plans for
a major development on the Cay that would be financed by
private capital.
But nothing has happened and now it seems that, with the
steady withdrawal of capital from the islands they cannot find
anyone with the confidence in the future stability of the
government to undertake such a major venture.

In the meantime the P.L.P. government has borrowed money
wherever it could be found for all kinds of extravagant
undertakings. It seems that every department in government
wanted its own great building as a status symbol. Even in some of
the Out Islands they indulged in extravagant buildings to boost
the credit of a favoured representative.
Now the government's credit is exhausted. The sewerage
condition grows daily steadily worse. And God alone knows what
will happen if there were an out-break of any kind of epidemic in
the island as a result of contaminated water.

Cholera is not a stranger to this part of the world. There was a
time early in the last century when cholera ... as well as yellow
fever, malaria, typhoid fever anddiphtheriawere a scourge in the
Western Hemisphere. And New Providence had its scourge from
cholera too. I am very conscious of the danger of yellow fever
because I had two aunts who died from the fever during a visit to
Cuba before I was born.
There is a warning for all to see in St. Matthew's church
cemetery. When you enter this cemetery by its northern gate you
will see a row of black square stones on both sides of the road
leading to the main part of the cemetery. These stones mark
cholera graves. They were put there as a warning that these graves
were never to be opened again.

I don't know what the P.L.P. government is going to do about
this health hazard because they have no money to undertake such
a major venture.
But there it is ... it is very real ... and it is very dangerous.
I need not suggest what the outbreak of any kind of epidemic
would mean to the tourist economy of the Bahamas.

I feel I can do no better than by ending this article with a
warning sounded in Chapter 29 of the Book of Proverbs, verse 18,
which reads: "Where there is no vision, the people perish."

WORKERS in the construction field
throughout the Bahamas were invited to attend
a special meeting Saturday at the headquarters
of the Acklins, Crooked Island and Lo. Cay
Association hall in order to discuss the
"hopeless slump" in the local building industry.
At the extremely poorly attended meeting,
Mr Richard Cooper, past president of the
Acklins, Crooked Island and Long Cay
Association urged members in the building
field to "join forces in an attempt to revive the
forces of the Bahamas Construction and

recognition from Government."
In an opening address to the disappoin:,igly
small audience of hardly more than 10 persons
Mr. Cooper said that "for the last three or four
years I have noticed our butter and bread slide
off the table, and I can see no hope of it ever
returning."
"We cannot achieve anything," Mr. Cooper
emphasized," if we are apart. Our future in the
construction field is hopeless and as far as the
building industry goes the government is
hopeless."

When you're looking for a TV set, let the picture on the
screen decide for you. It should be sharp so that you
can clearly see the smallest details. And it should be
steady so that it's restful to your eyes. The kind of
picture you get on a Philips TV set.
But Philips offer you more than just that. For all Philips
TV's are well-designed sets with beautiful cabinets. But
that's not all. Remember, too, that every dependable
Philips set is backed by a fast-working service network.

THE BOARD of directors of
Barclays Bank International,

International Development
Fund.
Since its formation in 1970,
the International Development
Fund has been allocated a total


MR A. B ELLIS (right) manager of Barclaycard
Overseas is pictured with Mr. K. C. Bligh the local
Barclaycard authorization officer in the Bahamas.
Barciavcard is a sterling charge card that is issued by
Barcla s Bank International Ltd. Mr. Ellis was here recently
visiting the merchant outlets of the charge card in both
Nassau and Freeport


of $1,404,000 and has assisted
in more that 40 development
projects.
The fund was set up by
Barclays Bank International
Ltd. to provide financial aid to
badly needed development
projects throughout the world.
An example of the scheme is
the provision of funds by
Barclays to the University of
Kumasi, Ghana, to set up a
consultancy centre for Ghanian
businessmen.
Also in Lesotho in southern
Africa where farming is very
difficult due to a grave water
shortage, Barclays has helped
to finance a successful
irrigation scheme.
The committee that
selects the applications to
benefit from the fund, favours
development projects where it
seems possible that commercial
financing could be arranged in
the future.
The development project or
research study should show
worthwhile social and
economic benefits either to the
nation as a whole, or to a
particular underprivileged
sector.

Jamaica, is their last stop the
following day before returning
to England.
The local 300,000 population
are expected to meet the royal
couple in a more free way than
the rather sullen inhabitants of
the cold and rainy 3.5 million
populated Bogota.
As one of the main slavery
ports in the Continent in the
XVII century, Cartagena still
conserves African traditions.
Its music is one of the richest
in Colombia, and Princess
Anne is expected to listen to
folk groups.
After the arrival in the
afternoon and some rest in the
royal quarters of the "Caribe"
Hotel, Princess Anne and
Captain Phillips will be guided
to a detailed tour of the
massive stone fortifications
built to fight off English
pirates in the XVII and XVIII
centuries
They will be seeing the "San
Felipe" castle and its
supporting forts, the cathedral
and "La Popa' and San Pedro
Claver" monasteries all of them
built in the XVII century, the
inquisition building and some
of the lively colonial streets of
town.
It was in San Felipe where
the city's brave and crippled
military chief Bias De Lezo
defeated Admiral Vernon's


20,000 troops in 1741.
Princess Anne will be
presented with the town's
symbolic keys at a ceremony in
the three-centuries old customs
house where the city hall is
now housed. The end of the
day will be marked by a gala
banquet offered by local
authorities.

mhp Tribtmt


DEAR ABBY: My husband is 47 and I'm 45. Five years
ago he had an affair with a young woman who works at the
factory where he works. It's all over now and I have
forgiven him, but another problem has come up. I have a
24-year-old daughter who started working at the factory
where her father and this old flame of his are still working.
Different people who work there have told me that my
daughter has been going around asking people if they know
in which department her father's old girl friend works so
she can get a look at her. She told her foreman she just
wanted to see if she could see what her father saw in that
lady that made him flip his lid and hurt me so much.
What can I do about this? I don't want my daughter to
see this woman. Worrying about it has made me a nervous
wreck. NIGHTMARES IN R. I.
DEAR NIGHTMARES: You can't stop your daughter
from trying to satisfy her curiosity. So what if she does see
this woman? The affair Is over, so put It out of your mind
and don't make a federal case out of it.

DEAR ABBY: I am a 16-year-old girl with a BIG
problem. My nose. Both my parents have noses like you
wouldn't believe, so it's no wonder.
I have no brothers or sisters. I joke about it, saying,
"After my parents saw me they decided not to have any
more." [It's probably true.]
I have friends, but I've never had a date. I'm always
clowning around, laughing at myself, but inside, my heart
is breaking because I feel so ugly with this nose.
I've begged my parents to give me a nose job but my
father says it's too expensive, and my mother says if
people don't like me for myself they are false friends.
I'm a good student but I want to quit school and get a
job so I can start saving for a nose job. I need it NOW, not
10 years from now. Do you know of any plastic surgeon
who will do my nose now and let me pay him later? I'll sit
with his kids, I'll scrub his floors at home or at his office.
I'll do anything, Abby, if he'll fix my nose now and let me
pay him on time. Please? "SCHNOZ"
DEAR SCHNOZ: Send me your name and address and
I'll do a little nosing around for you.

DEAR ABBY: I am glad that airlines are now separat-
ing smokers from nonsmokers, but can't something be done
to help office workers who don't smoke, yet are obligated
to spend eight hours a day, five days a week in closed
offices with workers who smoke all day long?
Nonsmokers are made miserable by the thoughtlessness
of our fellow workers, not to mention the harm done to our
hearts and lungs by forced breathing of others' smoke for
hours. Many don't dare complain because the boss and his
secretary both smoke, and they, with other smokers, would
be furious if we protested.
We need our jobs, many being too near retirement to
think of seeking employment elsewhere. Can't the Environ-
mental Protection Agency set standards for offices in this
country?
What IS the answer for this category of long-suffering
nonsmokers? SICK FROM SMOKE IN N. MEX.
DEAR SICK: I wish I knew. You can't legislate consid-
eration for others. Most cigaret smokers are aware that
they offend nonsmokers, but are either too hooked to re-
frain or too selfish to care. I just wish they would volun-
tarily go somewhere else to indulge their habit.

BMHA to hold national

oratorical contest

THE BAHAMAS MENTAL HEALTH ASSOCIATION
will hold its Mental Health Week from January 20 to 26.
The theme, in keeping with this first year of independence
will be: "Young people in a young nation."
The Association is hoping to involve as many young
people as possible throughout the Bahamas.
In addition to the regular activities during the week, the
Association will sponsor an oratorical contest for two age
groups: 13 to 16 years and 17 years plus.
The topic to be discussed by the first group is: "The
needs of young people in a young nation." The second
group will discuss: "The problems of young people in a
young nation and how to meet them."
It is hoped that each island will be represented in the
finals to be held in Nassau on January 25 and 26. The
semi-finals for the New Providence schools/associations will
be organized by the Bahamas Mental Health Association
during the week of January 14 to 18.
The Family Islands should submit the names of the two
finalists from each island by Yanuary 12. Family Island
finalists should arrive in Nassau by the evening of Thursday,
January 24 in order to participate in the finals.

Rupert and the Cake Race-13


Rupert, Ferdy and Algy are soon well in front
of the other runners. "I'm going this way,"
puffs Algy, climbing a stile. "You won't find
much there," jeers Ferdy. "I'm keeping
straight ahead." He races on, but Rupert
swings into a side road. "It's time for us to
split up," thinks the little bear, "instead of
searching the same places." He hunts in all

the spots where the cakes are likely to be
hidden and as he pauses beside one of the
village pumps he sees a figure scurrying past.
"That's Ferdy Fox," he murmurs. How
strange. I thought he went another way.
And where is his plate ? He's not carrying it
now."

In his eagerness to win the race Rupert does
not lve a second thought to the fox he has
jur seen. He searches hard, and at last
discovers one of the cakes behind a fence.
"Hooray, that's the first I" he cries. "I
wonder how many more I shall find. They're
well hidden." A few moments later, as he
hurries on, he meets Eric the baker's ooy


"I've heard about this Cake Race, Master
Rupert," ays the lad. "I mut say those
two foxes seem to be getting on fine. Between
them they've found three cakes already."

CARROLL RIGHTER'S

9IOROSCOPE
from the Crroll Rightr Institute
GENERAL TENDENCIES: Delays and possible
S depression can now upset you, so keep
cheerful. Develop patience so no one will feel you are
pressuring them. Study new plans but do not put them in
action today, tonight.
ARIES (Mar. 21 to Apr. 19) Think along more personal
lines to progress faster, but don't get into social squabbles that
could become costly. Smile more. Don't force yourself on
anyone.
TAURUS (Apr. 20 to May 20) Handle confidential matters,
since other activities may not turn out successfully now. Clear
your desk for bigger things ahead. Show your ability
GEMINI (May 21 to June 21) Avoid pals who get on your
nerves today and work on your finest aims. The social is not
favored tonight, so keep working in p.m.
MOON CHILDREN (June 22 to July 21) Do not irk
higher-ups in any way now; await a better day for expansion.
Handle credit affairs with the aid of experts.
LEO (Ju'y 22 to Aug. 21) Your excellent ideas do not fit
into your scheme of things just yet, so postpone and study
further. Situation with out-of-towners will improve in time.
VIRGO (Aug 22 to Sept. 22) Make some arrangements to
handle collections and payments more efficiently. Show
patience with mate who is apt to be in a poor humor.
LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct 22) Use tact to know what
associates expect of you, and then you can combine efforts
more intelligently. Use subtle methods, reconcile and don't
start arguments.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Don't relegate your duties
to others but get at them quickly. Take right treatments to
restore waning energies. Show you are sensible.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Handle important
tasks first, then go out to recreations that make you feel
happier. Stay within your budget. Avoid one with peculiar
ideas.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 20) Show more devotion to
kin for their affection and cooperation now. Forget your
argumentative idea and establish more harmony instead. Avoid
one whose ideas are picayunish.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19) You can easily figure out
the right solution to problems, but stick to yours and don't get
involved in those of others. Make your life happier, more
successful.
PISCES (Feb 20 to Mar. 20) Forget all discontent and do
things you really like to do which can be successful. Be patient
with a good friend who isn't feeling well. Think along logical
lines.
IF YOUR CHILD IS BORN TODAY . he or she will need
religious and ethical training early to provide the right
platform for successful activities. Slant the education along
modern lines and the vision here will then be extraordinary.
There is inventiveness in the nature that can be helpful to the
public in general. Teach early to be practical and to earn
money for self for best results.
"The Stars impel, they do not compel" What you make of
your life is largely up to YOU!

Bahamian tennis fans will be
able to watch world class
tennis being played in Nassau
when some 60 players from all
over the world clash in the
$10000 3rd Bahamas
International Open slated for
December 13-20 at the Ocean
Club Hotel, Paradise Island.
Among the world's leading
players who will be competing
for the $2000 first prize are
Clark Graebner, Stephen
Warboys, Buster Mottram,
Gene Scott, Richard Russell
Bill Godrella and others.
Graebner has been ranked
along with the world's leading
tennis players for the last five
years and has twice reached the
semi-finals at Wimbledon.
The tall, bespectacled
Graebner is reputed to have the
hardest serve in the world.
Warboys and Mottram are
both British Davis Cup team
players.
In 1971, Mottram became
the youngest Briton ever to
win the British Under 21 title
and he recently defeated
Australia's Rod Laver on the
European Indoor Circuit in
France.

Pitchers top commodity


HOUSTON Pitchers were
the top commodity Monday
with a fistful of trades and an
unusually active player draft
signalling the start of U.S.
baseball's annual winter
meetings.
Three trades, all involving
pitchers, opened what
promised to be a busy week of
bartering.
First, the Philadelphia
Phillies acquired right-hander
Ron Schueler from Atlanta in
exchange for Barry Lersch,
another righty, and shortstop
Graig Robinson.
Then, Oakland and the
(hicago Cubs swapped veteran
relievers, with the world


Champion A's shipping
Horacio Pina to the Cubs for
Bob Locker.
After that, Houston sent
reliever Jim Ray and infielder
Gary Sutherland to Detroit for
right-hander Fred Scherman.
Five of the 12 players
selected in the draft also were
pitchers.

After the trades came the
player draft a source of
talent that has yielded less and
less in recent years.
Surprisingly, a dozen players
were plucked, at a total cost of
$300.000.


Collegians coast home



against the Tigers


By GLADSTONE THURSTON
COLLEGIANS coach John Archer was not
really looking forward to scoring a century last
night. He was sure of a win and was only
interested in giving each player a feel of the
court.
Coming off a 58-49 setback to Central
Avengers Friday, the defending league champs,
behind the shooting and rebounding of skipper
Tyrone Hamilton and Horace Rolle, stomped
Bain Town 82-32. This victory gave them a
second tie with Container Saints Junior.
In Archer's opinion, the Collegians were
supposed to be tried with Cougars Juniors for
first place. "We felt that loss to the Avengers,"
he said. "We weren't expecting them to play
that well. They were playing over their heads."
With Hamilton last night paving the way
with a 23-point/12-rebound performance, the
Collegians clamped down on the Tigers from
the first quarter when they took a 16-2 lead.
Playmaker for the night Cleo Rahming scored
eight in that period. Godfrey Swain scored the
Tigers' sole point.
Going into the second quarter, the
Collegians proved stronger physically but
possibly overconfidence had them missing less
than 50 percent from the field. However,
baskets scored were sufficient to keep them on
top and with rookie guard Michael Colebrook
joining Hamilton in the attack the Collegians
controlled a 23-6 command nearing the end of
that period. (olin Darling and Phillip Kemp
gave the Tigers markers.
Taking a 56-18 lead into the final round, the
Collegians cruised to an easy victory their
third in five played. The Tigers were serious in
their game but being inexperienced dropped
their fifth in as many played.

BAILLOU defeated
Buccaneers 15-12 last Saturday
in what was a crucial game in
the present series.
Baillou needed to win to
stay in contention for the cup
and straight from the kick-off
pushed Bucs back to their own
line.
A good three quarter
movement saw Mike
Lightbourn over but he was
unable to ground the ball and
Bucs found some breathing
space.
They were unable to break
clear of their own 25 however,
until, suddenly following a
Baillou heel, the ball was

leap

through

THE MIAMI Dolphins
recorded their fifth straight
win last night when they
defeated the Pittsburgh
Steelers 30-26 in a cliffhanger
at the Orange Bowl.
Six Dolphin interceptions
were the main feature of the
game (four by Dick Anderson)
but these were nearly wiped
out by offensive futility
In the second half the
Steelers roared from a 30-3
deficit on the passing of Terry
Bradshaw and the running of
Franco Harris.
During this time the
Dolphins' offense managed
only one first down and two
fumbles-by Larry Csonka and
Jim Kiick, while the only
impressive move on offense all
night came in the final two
minutes with the Dolphins
backed to their 11 yd line on a
4th down.
From there, Griese retreated
for the safety, giving Larry
Sieple a chance for a free kick
from his 20 rather than a
hurried punt.
The safety made the score
30-26 and a minute later Jake
Scott snared the sixth Dolphin
interception to save the
Dolphins' fifth victory without
a loss on Monday nights.
This was the Dolphin's 10th
straight win, their llth of 12
and 28th of 29 since the loss to
Dallas in Super Bowl VI.

dropped and there was Jim
Banks to kick ahead, round the
full back and score under the
posts. The kick was good and
Baillou were stunned to find
themselves 6 points down.
Five minutes later the deficit
was doubled when Banks, who
was having an outstanding
game for the Buccaneers, gave
a repeat performance and again
scored under the posts. The
conversion was made and Bucs
went into a half time lead of
12-0.
The start of the second half
saw Baillou again mount
pressure on the Bucs line and


this time they got the score
they needed. Dave Lakin burst
over and Baillou were back in
the game at 12 3.
It was Baillou's forwards
who were forcing them back
into contention and it was one
of them, Ansel Holder who set
up the next score. He kicked
ahead and then crash tackled
the full back, the ball broke
loose and Dave Rounce was
there to touch down out on
the right.
Straight from the kick off it
was the same combination of
Holder and Rounce who set up
a sensational score. Holder
fielded the kick. fed the hall to


Rounce then took a return pass
and made a tremendous burst
down the middle. Winger
Brock Barrett cut in well to
keep the movement going and
found support from Dick
Lightbourn on his right.
Lightbourn forced his way
almost to the line before
passing to his brother Mike on
the wing, who went over for
the try.
The score was now tied at
12 all and it was left to Jim
Astbury, whose tactical kicking
had been invaluable to Baillou,
to make the game safe with a
well taken penalty.
