Friday, January 18th.
Mr. Gardiner. 13-year
veteran member of the
Progressive Liberal Party,
expressed "disgust" over the
party's choice of Sinclair
Outten as its standard-bearer in
the election, since Mr. Outten
was forced to resign the seat
because he was not a Bahamian
citizen when he offered for and
won the seat for the PLP
during last year's general
elections.
Mr. Outten vacated the seat
after announcing he had only
just discovered he in fact had
been born in the Turks and
Caicos Islands. lie has obtained
Bahamian citizenship and has
been ratified by the PLP's NGC
to again seek the seat.
INSULTED
"I offer myself as a
candidate," Mr. Gardiner said
in an exclusive interview this
morning, "because the Prime
Minister has insulted the
people of the constituency of
St. Barnabas; he has virtually
called us stupid and incapable.
"Stupid in that after telling
us this land is our land, he gave
the constituency to Turks
Island; incapable in that after
all the years of telling us
'Bahamas for Bahamians' there
could not be found one single,
solitary Bahamian in all the
700 islands of the Bahamnas to
represent the people of St.
Barnabas so he had to send a
Turks Islander to represent us.
It is reported that Mr.
Outten is shunning the press
and has not been seen
campaigning in the district.
DISGUSTING
"How utterly disgusting.
how shamelessly blasphemous.
how hypocritical," Mr.
Gardiner protested.
Mr. Gardiner, owner of the
'hrifty Hardware and of the
Thrifty Jitney bus lines, told
The Tribune that "I offer
myself as a candidate in this
by-election because
tyranny has raised its ugly head
and threatens to destroy all
that we toiled for through the
years."
He warned constituents to
"defend yourselves from
foreign invasion."
Mr. Gardiner is one of two
PLP stalwarts who are defying
the NGC's choice of Mr.
Outten. Well-known business,
man and long-time PLP
supporter Wenfred "Sife" Hea-


Gurth Duncombe badly

beaten up & robbed


MR. GURTH Duncomnbe,
who v was badly beaten about
the face and robbed when
visiting his daughter at her
Blair home on November 24,
said today his attacker was a
young man between 16 and 20
years old.
Mr. Dunconlbe told The
Tribune that his son-in-law and
daughter, Mr. and Mrs.
Geoffrey Johnstone, had just
returned from a European
holiday and he had dropped in
to welcome them home. Mr.
Duncombe said he parked his
car at the entrance to his
son-in-law's driveway at
"Annandale". Blair Estate, and
walked up to the house. He left
at about 6:50 p.m. to walk
down to his car.
"I hadn't got to my car
when a man came out of the
shadows. 'Are you looking for
someone', I asked. He didn't
answer, then he said: 'Give me
one dollar'." Mr. Duncombe
said he would give him a dollar
and went to put his h,. id ,. ;ri
pocket when "someone


grabbed me from the back and
pinned miy arms to my sides."
The young man who had
asked for a dollar hit him in
the face.
"He really shellacked me,"
Mr. Duncombe commnented.
"He knocked me out with the
first blow."
Mr. )uncombe remembers
nothing more, other than a
feeling of "hands going into
my pockets." When he came to
he got in his car and drove up
the driveway to Mr.
Johnstone's home.
His face was badly cut and
bruised. Two front teeth were
knocked out and he suffered a
hair-line fracture of the jaw.
His eyes were' swollen shut.
Mr. Duncombe described his
assailant as "fairly short". Mr.
Duncombe thought, from the
way he was hit, that his
attacker must have had
"something to do with
boxing."
"I think he used knuckle
dusters. One blow cut me all
up." he said. He was confined
to bed for four to five days.


stie confirmed his candidacy at a
press conference this morning.
(See story this page).
FIVE CANDIDATES
The two announcements
bring to five the number of
persons vying for St.
Barnabas's estimated 1,500
votes. Also in the running are
unionist Dudley Williams
(Labour) and Senator Arthur
Foulkes (FNM). The Vanguard
Nationalist Socialist Party was
also considering offering a
candidate, but no spokesman
could be contacted today for
comment.
Mr. Gardiner. until a year
ago chairman of the PLP's St.
Barnabas branch, told The
tribune he does not anticipate
expulsion from the party,
because, he said, precedents
indicated there is provision in
the PLP constitution for
expulsion only when a member
joins a political group opposed
to the party.
But he definitely anticipates
suspension.
lie made it clear that he is
not offering as an
"lndependent-PLP". because
"there is no such creature."
FACES SUSPENSION
lie said that if he is elected
and he is confident he will
be "my role in the House
will be strictly independent. I
expect to be suspended, but to
mny mind revolutions start in
one single, solitary mind.
Others join the revolution and
become part of it.
"If, through this action, the
party is awakened from the
deep slumber it has fallen into,
the action in my estimation
will be worth it for the party
"I maintain the basic PLP
philosophy. The party has
strayed from it. I have to try to
get it back on course, and I
couldn't do it if I didn't adopt
an independent attitude."
ASSEMBLY
Asked to discuss Mr.
Ileastie's candidacy, Mr.
Gardiner commented:
"Sife is considered the
grandfather of the
constituency of St. Barnabas.
But the day for Sife's type of
politics is past. We are in a new
era, with new thoughts, new
ideas, new ideals."
He described Mr. Ileastie's
politics as "the type of politics
which seems to suggest a
vociferous and irrelevant
approach to the issues. In the
heat of debate he will stray to
all sorts of extraneous
matters."
lie added that "I doubt very
seriously that Mr. Williams has
any chance of affecting tihe
outcome of the elections."
Mr. Gardiner. who will hold
no public meetings and will
campaign strictly on a
house-to-house basis, has
already had campaign posters
printed. Vivian Whylly is his
campaign manager.
His campaign symbol will be
a clock. At the top of the
poster the clock reads eight
o'clock, the time polls open.
and next to it in large, bold
print are the words. "Now is
the time!"
At the bottom is another
clock, reading six o'clock, the
time the polls close. "By this
time," the poster says, "St.
Barnabas has a son from her
own soil: Clyde K. Gardiner."
The poster declares that now
is the time for lower rents.
modern bathroom facilities,
more healthy surroundings,
more jobs and greater job
opportunity.
If elected, he said. lihe
intends to earn his M.P's
salary.

BY-ELECTION SET


FOR JANUARY 18


THE ST. BARNABAS
by-election has been called
for Friday, January 18,
*ahamas Information
rvices announced at 1 p.m.
t day. At least five persons
e expected to be nominated
dn December 19.
A statement from BIS said:
"His Excellency the
Governor-General, Sir Milo B.
Butler, G.C.M.G., has issued a
writ of election for the St.
Barnabas constituency
by-election.
"Nominations will take
place on Wednesday,
December 19, between the
hours of 9 a.m. and 12 noon
at the S. C. McPherson Junior
High School on Blue Hill
Road (formerly Prince
Williams Baptist High).
"If the election is
contested polls will be held
on Friday, Jan. 18, 1974
between the hours of 8 a.m.
and 6 p.m.."
, The election will therefore
take place 44 days after
today's issue of the writ,
within the terms of the
Representation of the People
Act, but it will be 20 days
past the apparent December
29 constitutional deadline.
The Constitution states
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-General 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 occ-urrence of the
vacancy."
The PLP's Sinclair Outten
vacated the seat by letter to
House Speaker Arlington
Butler on October 30. after
discovering he was a Turks

time-limit would therefore
appear to expire on

election is scheduled for 20
days later.
In announcing the election
today, a BIS spokesman said
Government had made no
statement on the
constitutional dilemma.
Expected to be nominated
for the election are Sinclair

OPPOSITION CONNUMICATIOH ON

CASINOS BARRED BY SPEAKER



FNM rap 'careless &



high-handed' PLP



casino gaming decision

By NICKI KELLY
THE "CARELESS AND HIGH-HANDED MANNER" in which
government handled the vital casino gambling issue has been
strongly censured by the Opposition Free National Movement
which today came out as "diametrically opposed" to government
ownership and operation of casinos.


TIhe statement by Leader
Kendal Isaacs was to have been
made to the louse initially in
the form of a Communication.
This was thwarted however
when, after hearing the first
few sentences. Deputy Prime
Minister Arthur Hanna
objected that the Communi-
cation was controversial and
therefore unacceptable.
Mr. Hanna cited the
precedent set by former
Speaker A. R. Braynen. who
ruled that Comnmui nications
should be submitted to him in
advance to avoid having
controversial matters raised at
such time.
Speaker Arlington Butler
suggested Mr Isaacs make his
Commu nication eliminating
the controversial portions.
After conferring with Mr.
Butler the Opposition Leader
decided that since he did not
wish to make his
Communication in part he
would seek other avenues
available to him.
(;IVEN TO PRESS
The Conmunication was
subsequently circulated to the
press in the form of a press
release from Mr. Isaacs.
He pointed out that the
government's decision to take
ov,'r the casinos iould on-'
further damage the reputation
of the Bahamas, and,
consequently, the country's
economy.
'Cominmenting first on the
government's error regarding
thle expry date of the Paradise
enterprises' licence. Mr. Isaacs
said this only further
aggravated the already serious
effect of the announcement.
It gave the impression, he
said, that the government was
going to nationalise at least one
of the casinos two years before
the expire date of its licence
BAD REACTION
"I aum informed that already
t h re has been most
un favourable reaction from
foreign press and financial
circles as well as local financial
and investment circles," he
said. I his reaction is likely to
continue and to spread in the
months ahead.
I he opposition might have
been inclined to excuse the
government's mistake in
connection with the expiration
dates, as it was possible to
make such a mistake even after
checking the files.
"llowever we believe that in
this particular case the mistake
was made because tthe
government failed to consult
and to consider properly their
original communication.' Mr
Isaacs said.
NO CONSUL. ACTION
The Ilouse had already been
told that the government's own
supporters in Parliament,
including at least one
Parliamentary Secretary ( Mr
Edmund Moxey). were not
consulted before the decision
was taken, nor even before the
('omltmu nication was made.
"Neither. we understand, were
the operators of the casinos
nor the government's official
advisors informed or
consulted."
Mr Isaacs said he knew that
no public discussion was
invited by the government.
"We in the Opposition and,
we suggest every concerned
citizen, are deeply alarmed at
the careless and high-handed
manner in which the
government has handled this
vital issue," he declared.
"We shudder at the
possibility of more serious
mistakes by the government if
they persist in their cavalier
and dictatorial attitude
towards the people's business."
OPPOSED
Mr. Isaacs stated "clearly
and unequivocally" that the
[NM was opposed to
government ownership and
operation of casinos for a


number of reasons.
First, it did not believe the
government should nationalise
private commercial and
industrial ventures. While the
government might argue it was
not nationalising the assets and
property of the casino
operators, it was in fact
nationalising the business itself.
Second, the FNM was not
prepared to accept the
proposition that all the
government was doing was
exercising its right to refuse to
renew the casino licences.
"They are refusing to renew
the licences not because they
have decided to bring an end to
the casino gambling but
because they have decided to
take over the business
themselves," Mr. Isaacs
charged.
He argued that governments
in general by their very nature,
did not make the best
managers of commercial and
industrial ventures, and the
Bahamas goverr .nent in
particular tad not
demonstrated t at they can
properly handle their present
responsibilities," he said.
MORE COST
"The Minister of Finance.
while announcing the
go crnment's intention to
nationalise the casinos, admits
that they have not given full
consideration to the
complexities involved and they
plan to spend more of the
people's money when they say
that they will conduct a
feasibility study to determine
the best method by which
casinos may be operated."
"It was evident that the
government had once again put
the carriage before the horse,"
Mr. Isaacs observed.
Among the complexities
mentioned by the Opposition
Leader were the systems of
credits and collections. He
wondered if the government
could develop the knowledge,
expertise and far-flung
connections necessary for the
operation of these systems, or
would they have to turn to the
very people from whom they
would have taken the casinos.
The FNM was convinced
that the government's policy
would result in reduced
efficiency, reduced profits in
which the government now
shares by means of taxation,
and perhaps an increase in
bribery and corruption.
"We believe it is better for
the government to remain the
policeman in casino gambling
rather than to become the
house man," Mr. Isaacs said.
It was the FNM's view, he
said, that casino gambling
should be operated so as to
maintain the highest degree of
competitiveness in the tourist
business. This meant attracting
more and more tourists, and, in
consequence, the construction
of more hotels to accommodate
them.
Mr. Isaacs reminded
members that hotels on
Paradise Island and Freeport
were built because of this
incentive. He was convinced
that with this "unfortunate
and ill-timed announcement by
the government" any hope for
encouraging further hotel
construction has been seriously
diminished.

Don't panic, UK



drivers are told


LONDON Pressure for
quick introduction of gasoline
rationing built up today amid
warnings that Britain faces
food and materials shortages to
add to its energy crisis.
The government, however,
insisted that rationing was not
yet necessary. Along with the
oil companies, government
spokesmen charged that
London's gasoline famine was
largely self-induced through
panic buying by private car
owners.
The Automobile Association
agreed with the government
view.
Many drivers, it said, were
queueing for long periods to
top up tanks which already
were practically full.
Industry Minister Tom
Boardman said: "It is
unnecessary. If people would
behave responsibly we could
get by without much
discomfort."
The longer-term outlook.
however, seemed bleak.
A spokesman for British
Petroleum, international oil
giant in which the government
has a major share, said stocks
of refined oil are low and will


get lower once Arab
production cutbacks begin to
bite.
"The situation can only get
worse," he said.
The London-based
international Chamber of
Shipping warned that an
international trade recession
could quickly develop because
ships are running out of fuel.
Deliveries to Britain of
wheat, meat, diary products,
fruit, coal and iron ore already
have been affected, it said.
Joseph Godber, Minister of
Agriculture, confirmed in a
statement that food prices
probably would rise. Cereal
prices, he said, were advancing
on world markets although
harvests had been good.
Despite the oil shortage, the
government was obliged to
divert oil supplies from the
open market to the
state-owned electricity
generating system.
This was because coal
supplies are down by 30 per
cent.

front in recent weeks and the
worst since Egyptian-Israeli
talks on a military
disengagement were broken off
a week ago.
The Egyptians said on
November 9 they had shot
down two Phantom warplanes
over the canal. The Israelis said
only one reconnaissance plane
was lost.
Today's incident came as the
state-run press sought to
portray the front line situation
growing more tense every day.


Nixon now worth


3 times as much


WASHINGTON President
Nixon's net worth has tripled
since he took office and now
stands at about one million
dollars, his lawyers have told
Republican congressional
leaders.
Representative John
Anderson, an Illinois
Republican, said yesterday that
the lawyers reported at a White
House meeting that the
president's net worth was in


OIL CRISIS HIT S.AFRICA
PRETORIA Prime Minister John Vorster has announced
further gasoline restrictions for South Africa but warned in a
radio broadcast, "those who seek our downfall will not succeed."
Last week it was announced at the Algiers Arab summit
meeting that Arab oil producing nations had agreed on a total
embargo on oil exports to South Africa.
The South African government ordered gasoline conservation
measures in the wake of the Middle East war: An 80 KPH speed
limit and fuel station to close from dusk Saturdays to dawn
Monday.
The new measures announced by Vorster yesterday mean
fuelling stations will have to close from dusk to dawn each
weekday and will not reopen from Friday until Monday.
Exemptions have been made for Christmas and New Year days.
Vorster also announced fuel rationing coupons would be
prepared.
He stressed the oil situation remained "fluid" and the
government would review the situation as conditions allowed but
warned South Africans to be ready for gasoline rationing next
March 1.(AP).


"the neighborhood of
$300,000 on Jan. 1, 1969, and
by last May 31 had risen to
about $988,000.
Neither of the figures jibes
with previous public
statements by Nixon aides on
the president's net worth. One
White House official said this
was because of differences in
accounting procedures.
Anderson and others
attending the two-hours White
House meeting said the lawyers
presented a complex cash flow
chart and other documents to
illustrate Nixon's income and
expenditures and show how he
legitimately obtained the
increase in net worth.
"They made it sound pretty
convincing," Anderson said.
Senator John Tower, a
Texas Republican, said the
consensus of those at the
session was that "the president
had not done anything that
was illegal, or irregular, or
unethical."
But Tower said there were
strong suggestions that the
president release his complete
tax returns to back up the
financial statements and other
documents. (AP).


Newspapers printed reports
from Israel of Egyptian
attempts to move forces
forward on the ceaseafire line
but did not directly confirm
them.
Meanwhile, Israeli security
forces arrested two Arabs in
occupied Jordan today after
one of them admitted throwing
the hand grenade in a crowded
Jerusalem street that wounded
18 people yesterday, the Israeli
military command announced
today.
The grenade exploded in the
Arab sector of Jerusalem, and
all of the casualties were
reported out of danger today.
The Beirut newspaper Al
Liwaa said 21 officers were
arrested in Jordan late last
month and charged with
inciting the army against King
Hussein.
The paper said the
arrested included a major who
commanded an armoured
battalion. (AP).


Truck drivers

WILMINGTON An estimated 200 trucks blocked all but
emergency traffic today on the Delaware memorial bridge.

York City and Washington, D.C.

BANDITS

IN RAIDS

FOR BLOOD
PORTO ALEGRE A gang
of robbers is taking blood
from Brazilian farmers at
gunpoint.
Col. Solon D'Avila, head of
the Federal police said agents
will be sent to the town of Tres
Passos, near the Argentine
border, where the blood
bandits reportedly are
attacking.
State police said earlier in
the week that farmers in the
area were panicked. but that
there were few specific details
about the alleged blood thefts.
Farmers claimed a group of
men wearing white uniforms
and carrying syringes and
bottles were accosting local
residents at gunpoint and
forcing them to give blood.
The bandits spoke Spanish
rather than Brazil's national
language, Portuguese the
farmers said.
Authorities could not
explain why the alleged
robbers want blood. There was
speculation they were selling it
to private hospitals. (AP).


Meanwhile, a logjam of
trucks blocking interstate 80 in
Pennsylvania broke up early
today.
The truckers were protesting
reduced speed limits and the
increasing cost of fuel brought
on by the energy crisis.
Angry drivers also used the
rigs to block highways in Ohio,
New Jersey, West Virginia and
New York.
There were demonstrations
by truckers yesterday in
Connecticut and Delaware.
Police made at least 13 arrests.
There is no indication of a
conucrted, nationwide effort to
tie up traffic. But some drivers
and a west coast trade
magazine have called for such a
move. (AP).

By ETIENNE DUPUCH
My book The Tribune Story was published in London in
1967, shortly after the P.L.P. got control of the government of
the Bahamas on January 10 that year.
This book was already to press when this revolutionary change
in the social and political structure of the islands took place.
I had just enough time to dash off a final chapter for the book.
It was brief three pages and six lines but I was able to crowd
into that small space a snapshot of world trends, including the
dark prospects for the Bahamas.
"My fear for the Bahamas today," I wrote, "is that it may get
caught up in influences that are a cancer in the soul of America,
and then all the bitter struggles in which three generations of my
family have tried to help in producing a happy and secure society
for ALL the Bahamian people, will have been in vain."
I recalled the night in January 1956 when I was instrumental
in breaking down barriers of racial discrimination in the colony.
The crowds in the Public Square wanted to lift me to their
shoulders and carry me triumphantly down Bay Street. I rejected
this hysterical adulation by the crowd. I knew at the time that I
would not do the things they expected me to do in order to get
power for myself and satisfy the cravings and deep down hatreds
of an unprepared people.
I also recalled that five months later these same people rejected
me at the polls in the Eastern District -- a district that had been
represented by four generations of my family because I refused
to destroy the Bay Street boys. The P.L.P. government have tried
to do this and, in the process, they will bring down disaster on
the heads of the masses.
I further recalled that when the P.L.P. took over control of the
country in 1969 I was a member of the Senate appointed by an
english governor.
After the ceremony in the Senate Chamber transferring power
to the P.L.P. government, my wife and I were booed and cursed
by the same people in the Square who wanted to make a hero of
me eleven years earlier for having achieved a reform that elevated
the coloured Bahamian people to first class citizenship ... the
most important reform for these people since Emancipation ... a
reform towards which three generations of my family had worked
in the Legislature and The Tribune at great personal sacrifice ... a
reform for which The Tribune almost alone had voice when
all but a few people in this group were afraid to raise their voices
in their own cause.
I concluded that chapter in my book with these words: "I shall
continue to fight to the end but something strange has happened
to me. For the first time in my life I feel I have a duty to secure
my family from the hot winds of change coming across the Gulf
Stream that may sweep our quiet islands with a wave of racial
emotionalism and other destructive influences at work in the
world today."
Two elections later... September 19, 1972 ... five years, eight
months and nine days after the take over ... I left the Bahamas
because I was then convinced that in this short time the
inexperienced men in government whose souls were torn by
greed, envy and hate, had taken the Bahamian people down the
garden path to a point of no return.
Since then I have been living abroad ... with a few brief trips
back to Nassau for business or other personal reasons. I continue
to be a citizen of the Bahamas but I have now officially become a
non-resident of the islands.
********
How correct have been my fears for the Bahamian people?'
Once a week I receive a file of The Tribune. I have just
completed reading the issues from Saturday, September 29th to
Friday, October 5th. (This article was written early in October).
Cast your minds back to the pre-P.L.P. period of government
in the Bahamas. Just remember what you had then ... and then let
us pinpoint highlights of the news of a week in the life of the
Bahamian people today.

Here is information taken from news reports in The Tribune.
SATURDAY September 29: Prime Minister Pindling gave a
press interview in which he produced a copy of his birth
certificate, registered in 1947 ... 17 years after his birth ... and
then refused to answer questions asked by The Tribune to clarify
points raised in his statement.
Fares on Bahamasair, the new Bahamian flag carrier, may be
increased.
The Courts will decide the case of Sinclair Outten, a Turks
Islander, elected to the House in the belief that he was a
-Bahamian.
Mr. Pindling made a statement to refute the claim by Michael
Lightbourn, an Independent member of the House, that an
employee of the Broadcasting Commission, of which the Hon.
Milo Butler Jr. is chairman, had been taken advantage of. There
are still some unexplained features about two cheques issued to
this man.
Two men found guilty by a Supreme Court jury in the first
real kidnapping case in the history of the Bahamas. One of these
men had formerly headed the police vice squad in Freeport and,
at the time he was arrested, was a security guard at a Freeport
3otel .. the other man was a serving police detective.
A woman murdered at Abaco. Her brother-in-law charged
with the crime.
Four letters to the Editor which reflect the minds of an
anxious people.
MONDAY: Prime Minister Pindlng gave a press interview in
which he told how he earned the money to buy a $450,000 house
on Millionaire Row which, I am told, cost another $150,000 to
redecorate. He asserted that he did not owe any money to the
Bahamas Commonwealth Bank, a Robert Vcsco asset in the
Bahamas. Readers of The Tribune today know all about Vesco.
One of the big items in Mr. Pindlings cash receipts was the sale of
a three-storey office building in Dowdeswell Street for $400,000.
This building has been practically unoccupied since it was built
on a small lot of land by the Prime Minister a few years ago. It
has been so empty that vandals broke many of the glass windows


on the bottom floor.
Garret (Tiger) Finlayson, whose purchase of the Airport
Catering firm for several million dollars, financed by the Bahamas
Commonwealth Bank, has publicly stated that he purchased both
the Prime Minister's office building and his home in Soldier Road
($75,000i.


hb Urtbtnt


In a feature article on these transactions The Miami Herald
recalled that a few years ago Mr. Finlayson was a poor
over-the-hill barber or tailor I forget which.
Mr. Pindling discussed unrest at ZNS and also stated that the
gate at ZNS was kept closed for security reasons.
Mr. Michael Lightbourn, M.P., hands over to the Prices
Control Commission, evidence in the alleged cases of overcharging
by the firm of Milo B. Butler & Sons. Milo B. Butler is today the
Governor General of the Bahamas.
Bahamasair has an emergency landing.
*General Bahamian Companies, perhaps the largest business
complex in Nassau, makes a report which reflects the difficulties
of carrying on business in the island today. A paragraph touches
on the effect of taxation imposed by a government that had
promised less taxation and a reduction in the cost of living.
"Burs House," the report states, "anticipated that in the
coming year there would be a 'considerable reduction in the sales
of beer due to the substantial increase in import duties!" (The
Tribune predicted this result from new taxation on certain
products.)


Bahamian Commissioner of Police Salathiel Thompson
addressed a squad of police recruits. "You are badly needed," he
told these men. "If there was any time our country needed you ...
it's this time."
TUESDAY: Two youths charged with robbery with violence.
Their victims were two visiting British envoys.
Police probe stabbing of a young man.
Police still probing brutal murder of a young English female
teacher at Exuma when her house was also destroyed by fire. The
British Foreign Office is interested in this case.
Workers Council condemn proposed Bahamasair fare hike as
non-acceptable.
Work resumes on Central Bank building after month's delay.
Prime Minister Pindling would like more objective reporting
by the Press.
Brandford L. Ferguson writes a letter in The Tribune urging
the government to find work for the people. (Remember: There
was over-employment in the Bahamas when the P.L.P. took over
in 1967).
Lady Butler honoured by women's group.
Nassau Association in New York honours Prime Minister
Pindling.
WEDNESDAY: Lawyers file writs of habeas corpus for two
men in the Major murder case on the grounds that they had been
held since January without trial although two sessions of the
Supreme Court had sat during this period.
Ministry bans four Bravo products.
Elliott Roosevelt denies involvement in alleged plot to
assassinate Prime Minister Pindling for allegedly reneging on an
alleged promise to Mike McLaney, American gambling character,
to make McLaney czar of gambling operations in the Bahamas as
a reward for financing the P.L.P.'s successful 1967 election
campaign, in consideration of an alleged further payment of one
million dollars.
'Hired assassin' told how he "cased" Miami hotel to get
Pindling.
Kemp Road youths association to do unemployment census,
claiming that there is massive unemployment in the island.
Michael Lghtboum, M.P. asks for time on ZNS to answer an
attack on him by Mr. Pindling in connection with questions raised
by him with respect to the Prime Minister's nationality, an alleged
abuse of an employee at ZNS, and the PM's half million dollar
mansion.
Seventy BEC employees picket the Big Pond power station
to underscore a number of "unresolved disputes" with
management. The list of grievances included demands "that
government do all in its power to revitalize the Bahamas economy
and put the nation back to work, with some kind of help every
week for the unemployed; that Prices Control and the Ministry of
Finance immediately take steps to roll back recent increases in
the price of food, rent, etc., and a national wage increase for all
workers. "The workers renewed their criticism of the Minister of
Labour."
(What these men don't realize yet is that the Public Treasury is
empty and the economy is bankrupt. Ed.)
The Bahamas Electricity Corporation's announcement
that it is to build new administration complex may be
"somewhat premature" as details of the structure and financing
have not yet been finalised.
The Supreme Court opened with five FIVE murder cases
on the calendar. And a display by a police guard provided at the
opening ceremonies was marred when two members of the Squad
wounded themselves with their own bayonets! (This is Mr.
Pindling's army!)
Marsh Harbour, Abaco man complains of increased rates for
very poor phone service. The phone service is operated by a
government corporation.
THURSDAY: Fishermen warned in law violation tor a
practice that threatens to destroy reefs and fishing grounds.
Sixty to 70 percent shortage of teachers in government
schools.
Hotel union demands 30 to 100 percent pay increases for
staff. Hotels given one month to agree to terms or face
consequences.
(The union doesn't seem to realize that, as a result of
conditions generally in the Bahamas today, the hotels are losing
money. Some of them may be obliged to close. And reports
persist that a major international airline now serving the Bahamas
may withdraw from this area ... because of a falling off in air
traffic between Nassau and Miami).
Elliott Roosevelt denies involvement in stolen securities.
allegedly sold in Nassau.
C.A.B. delay on Bahamasair U.S. licence. This airline has had
difficulties ever since it was established by the government as its
flag carrier. It is operating between Nassau and Miami on a licence
held by Out Island Airways.
New plane and some new routes planned by Bahamasair.
Manager of Bahamasair claims that maintenance is adequate but
admits that airline needs more qualified mechanics. (This
statement came as a result of a series of accidents and
near-accidents by the airline. I have predicted that this airline will
lose millions of dollars fast.)
Bahamasair to indemnify passengers left stranded bh
overbooking flights.
Mike McLaney denies any knowledge of assassination plot
against Prime Minister Pindling.
Two Cuban fishing boats attacked and destroyed by fire in
Southern Bahamas. An American fishing boat disappears in
Bahamian waters and is later located in Cuba.
Lionel Davis, M.P. (P.L.P.) opens "Save Our Young People in

now need lo be helped by charity!
Pictures showing "Our men at the U.N.." presumably. Ihlplng

one of the growth assets I inherited when I became manager of
the Scotia Bank in the Bahanus," Mr. Victor S. Emarson told the

REPLY TO STIRMANS


EDITOR, The Tribune,
Sir, just a few words in reply
to Mr. and Mrs. Stirman of
Washington.
Firstly, my deepest regret
and I mean this quite sincerely,
for the unfortunate incident
that befell you at the hands of
thoughtless, uncouth, thieving
rogues who deliberately tried
to undo what we as decent.
civilized, God-fearing
Bahamians have tried and
succeeded in doing for many
years.
You yourselves said you
have been coming here for 26
years.
Now my point is, in all this
time have you ever had any
problems?
Twenty-six years is a long
time to enjoy any country
without any or some hang-ups
and yet you say you might
never return to these
beautiful and tranquil shores.
Also you decided you won't
buy your condominium as a
result. Be more spe ili.
This could be expected to
happen in Washington but not
in Nassau you say. Pray tell
why? I have had the pleasure
of living in Canada. Detroit,
New York Philadelphia,
Baltimore, Fort Lauderdale
and even Washington and
believe me, these clinics and
much worse occur like every
minute.
Mind you, I'm not tot one
minute condoning these
aggravated assaults, and of


course we know that the
tourist is a great part of our
bread and butter (every nation
has to have something, Thank
God for sun and sand), but in
the meantime there are no
saints living here. Men are men
the world over.
PLease Mr. and Mrs.
Stirman. do not condemn a
whole nation, a beautiful island
and a progressive, smiling,
trying people for the
unfortunate incident you
experienced this one time.
Hurry back. believe me we love
vou both.

planning Christmas meals and
parties.
Luckily, the traditional
Christmas bird the turkey
is about the most inexpensive
meat available in the
supermarkets but here is a way
to really push up the price.
It used to be the custom in
France to surround the bird
with 12 partridges representing
the 12 months of the year. So
order the partridges now and
you'll be all set for December
25 It 12 partridges seem out
of line for the budget, try
sausages. Not quite as elegant
but they do make a good
garnish for the bird.
It is time now to make the
Christmas cakes and puddings
and the stores are loaded with
all the candied fruits you will
need.
CHESTNUTS
For the next two weeks, we
will deal with some traditional
and some very different
Christmas food.
An excellent accompani-
ment for the Christmas bird is
a dish of glazed chestnuts. Cut


a small cross on the flat side of
two pounds of chestnuts. Heat
at 350 degrees until the shells
curl. Peel them while they are
still hot and simmer in water to
cover for five minutes in order
to remove the brown inner
skin. Cook the chestnuts in a
saucepan in two cups of beef
stock until they are almost
tender. Drain. Melt three
tablespoons butter in a
skillet and stir in a quarter cup
of sugar Cook over low heat
until the mixture is a golden
brown. Add half a cup of water
and the chestnuts. Cook over
low heat until the water
evaporates and the nuts are
coated with sugar syrup. Place
the chestnuts on wax paper
and let them dry.
WALNUTS
Another form of nuts is
sugared walnuts or pecans. In a
large kettle, combine one and a
half cups sugar with half a cup
each of water and corn syrup.
Bring to a boil. Wash down the
sides of the kettle with a pastry
brush dripping with hot water.
Put in a candy thermometer
and cook the syrup uncovered
until the temperature reaches
240 degrees. Stir in half a
teaspoon salt and half a
teaspoon vanilla. Remove the
kettle from the heat and add
two cups nuts. Stir, coating the

nuts with syrup thoroughly,
until the syrup becomes
creamy. Pour onto oiled baking
sheets and using two oiled
forks, separate the nuts. Let
the nuts stand for several hours
until the syrup dries.
Use the same recipe for
spiced candied nuts but add
one and a half teaspoons
cinnamon and half a teaspoon
allspice with the salt and
vanilla
DATES
Another spicey Christmas
favourite is spiced ale. Pour
three cups of ale into a
saucepan and add an eighth of
a teaspoon each of cloves,
nutmeg, and ginger and ;: little
sugar. Ileat over lo. heat,
stirring frequently, until the ale
almost reaches the boiling
point. Just before serving, stir
in the strained juice of a lemon
and a pinch of baking soda.
A real English plum pudding
doesn't have any plums in it
but no matter Mix together in
a large bowl three cups seedless
raisins, two and two thirds
cups currants, two cups
chopped dates, two cups
chopped walnuts, two cups
finely chopped or ground suet,
half a cup each of candied
cherries and pineapple, and a
quarter cup each of candied
lemon peel, candied orange
peel and candied citron, all
finely diced. Mix thoroughly.
Sift together three times two
cups sugar. a cup of flour. two
teaspoons baking powder, one
and a half teaspoons cinnamon.
a teaspoon of salt, half a
teaspoon nutmeg and a quarter
teaspoon cloves. loss the flour
mixture with the fruits. Soak
half a cup of bread crumbs in a
cup of sour milk and add four
tablespoons molasses Add four
well-beaten eggs and add this
to the fruits and flour. Mix
well.
BRANDY
Fill a buttered and floured
mold three-quarters full and
cover tightly. Set the mold on
a rack in a large pot of
simmering water, cover the pot
and steam the pudding for
eight hours. Serve hot.
A "must" for plum pudding
is brandy hard sauce. Cream
half a cup of sweet butter and
gradually beat in one and a
quarter cups confectioner's
sugar or brown sugar and two


tablespoons or more of
brandy. Beat until light and
fluffy. Place in a serving dish
and dust the top with
cinnamon.
Tangerines are now
appearing in the supermarkets.
I'r spiced tangerines for the
Christmas bird or roast.
Combine one and half cups
water, the peel of three
tangerines, half a cup of sugar,
six whole cloves, five cinnamon
sticks and a bay leaf. Bring to a
boil and cook for 10 minutes.
Remove the peel and discard it.
Add the sections of eight
tangerines and cook for two
minutes. Remove the pan from
the heat. Add three
tablespoons lemon juice and let
the pot cool. Chill the
tangerines for 12 hours and
serve with meat or poultry.
Sugar plums are made with
apricots or prunes. Steam the
fruit on a rack for 15 minutes
or until tender. Cool and stuff
each with whole nuts or
softened marshmallows. Roll
the fruit in sifted sugar and let
them dry.
fry chicken liver pate for
holiday entertaining. In a
saucepan, combine two pounds
of chopped chicken livers with
halt a cup of butter, two
quartered nons, a teaspoon
each of paprika and curry
powder, and a quarter
teaspoon each of salt and
pepper.
BLENDER
Cover the pan and cook over
low heat for 10 minutes. Force
the mixture through a sieve or
puree in a blender. Stir in a cup
of softened butter and a
quarter cup of brandy. Pack in
a crock and chill the pate until
firm.
The pate makes an excellent
gift. So do brandied pears. Boil
together in a saucepan two
cups sugar, one and a quarter
cups water, one clove, a strip
of lemon peel. and half a
teaspoon vanilla. Boil for 15
minutes. Halve, peel and core
three pears and simmer them in
the syrup for 40 minutes.
Remove the pears with a
slotted spoon.
Sterilize a one-pint jar..
Pour in three tablespoons
brandy and carefully add half
the pears. Pour three
tablespoons brandy over the
pears and add the remaining
halves. Add two more
tablespoons brandy and fill the
jar with the syrup. Seal the jar.
The pears will keep for several
months.

DEAR ABBY: Thank you for trying to get parents to
accept their homosexual children as they are. Mine never
would, and I almost had a nervous breakdown trying to
keep it from them.
Abby, we need loveand acceptance from our parents
even more than heterosexual children do. But how can
children ever hope to educate their parents? They read
your column. Can you help? GAY AND HURTING
DEAR HURTING: Perhaps if your parents read the
classic letter Dr. Freud wrote to the mother of a homosex-
ual on April 9, 1935, it would help them to understand. I
hope so. Here it is:
"Dear Mrs.:



lister lackstone (Caribbean) Ltd.

Freud


comes


to aid of homosexual's mother


I gather from your letter that your son is a homosex-
ual. I am most impressed by the fact that you do not
mention this term yourself ia your information about him.
May I question you, why you avoid it? Homosexuality is
assuredly no advantage, but it is nothing to be ashamed of,
no vice, no degradation, it cannot be lassifled as an ill-
ness; we consider it to be a variation of the sexual function
produced by a certain arrest of sexual development.
Many highly respectable individuals of ancient and
modern times have been homosexuals, several of the great-
est men among them [Plato, Michelangelo, Leonardo da
Vinci, etc.1.
It is a great injustice to persecute homosexuality as a
crime, and cruelty, too. If you do not believe me, read the
books of Havelock Ellis.
By asking me if I can help, you mean, I suppose, if I
can abolish homosexuality and make normal heterosexuali-
ty take its place. The answer is, in a general way, we
cannot promise to achieve It. In a certain number of cases
we succeed in developing the blighted germs of heterosex-
ual tendencies which are present in every homosexual, in
the majority of cases it is no more possible. It is a question
of the quality and the age of the individual. The result of
treatment cannot be predicted.
What analysis can do for your son runs in a different
line. If he is unhappy, neurotic, torn by conflicts, inhibited
in his social life, analysis may bring him harmony, peace
of mind, full efficiency, whether he remains a homosexual
or gets changed.
If you make up your mind he should have analysis with
me! : I don't expect you will! He has to come over to
Vienna. I have no intention of leaving here. However, don't
neglect to give me your answer.
Sincerely yours with kind wishes
Freud"

DEAR ABBY: Our 14-year-old daughter [9th grader] is
co-hosting a boy-girl party for classmates in the basement
recreation room of her best friend's home. The friend's
parents will be out of town so my husband and I were
asked to be the chaperones.
Our daughter has made it clear that we were not to
"ruin" the party by insisting that they keep the lights on
down there.
While we would not expect to plunk ourselves down in
the middle of the room and hold a dialog witthe kids, we
feel that we should be able to move freely in and out of the
group. We also object to the party being held in the dark.
What do you think? SQUARE PARENTS
DEAR PARENTS: If you are "square," I am in all
four of your corners. Tell the kids you intend to pop in and
out from time to time, and they had better keep a light or
two on, or no party!
DEAR ABBY: My daughter was married several
months ago. Because of the circumstances, there was no
wedding or reception. She and her fiance just went away
and got married. [They jumped the gun and had to get
married before they had planned to.]
.: ., ,:. '" .


I didn't make up any lies. I just accepted things as
they were. She married the young man she had been going
with for two years and they are very, very happy.
Am I right in thinking that friends and relatives should
send her some kind of gift? I send wedding presents to
brides whether they had a wedding or not. Some of my
relatives say she doesn't "deserve" a gift. Why? Because

THE CHALK'S FLYING SERVICE operations in Nassau are
not hazardous, according to Tourism Minister Clement Maynard.
Mr. Maynard told the House Wednesday in answer to a
question, that the area and conditions for landings and take-offs
are designated by the Port Director, and he had been advised that
it was not hazardous.
Replying to Mr. Cleophas Adderley (Nassau-ind.), Mr. Maynard
said no permit or licence has yet been issued to the company.
"Flights have been allowed to continue effective from
July 19, 1972, pending the issuance of an aerodrome licence to

Hazel Moore -- a gracious


THE BAHAMAS can now boast a first in an International Arts
competition.
Mrs. Hazel Moore of the Carver Garden Club returned home at
the end of the month with blue ribbon honours for her
arrangement in the class "Holiday Aglow" at the Flower Show at
Miami Garden Centre and Conservatory.
The theme of the show was
"Fiestas of the Americas" .,d g tda
was open to entrants
throughout Central and South
America as well as the U.S. and
the Caribbean. A lady from
Peru took the second award in
the "Holiday Aglow" class.
This is the first time any of
the Nassau Garden Clubs have
competed in this show
although all are affiliated with
the International Council of
State Garden Clubs.
The Carver Garden Club
asked Mrs. Moore to enter and
are justifiably proud of her
singular success. Mrs. Moore
herself is so modest that
wherever possible she disclaims
any personal accolades and
gives credit to the group as a
whole.
The "Holiday Aglow" class
called for "A design inspired
by a beautiful candle or
candles".
Mrs. Moore used as her base
a candle holder which she built
up with plastic margarine
containers (rules governing
specific measurements are
strict. Mrs. Moore's winning
arrangement had to be 34
inches to 36 inches high as the
designated background was 36 -
inches high).
The mainstay of Mrs.
Moore's arrangement was the
humble Bahamian croton leaf.
Mrs. Moore told me that she
grows a lot of crotons and has
been using them for some time
in arrangements. BAHAMIAN FIESTA IV

difficult things to grow." And
n flower arrangement, she
said, it's the same thing
basically that motivates her.
"the challenge". At the present
time she is working with wild
ferns.


Her own home, as one might
imagine, contains many
exhibits of her art, including
one of wood roses.
We commiserated over the
fast disappearing wood rose
which grows wild but is fast
being sacrificed to
development. Mrs. Moore told
me that the wood rose is very
difficult to grow.
Flower arrangement, Mrs.
Moore says, is recognized as an
art, not a craft. "It's like an
artist painting a picture", she
said.
Before we go on to the
principles and attributes of this
art to which "school" of art
does Mrs. Moore belong?
She is "not keen on way out
arrangements," she says,
"because not sufficient plant
material" is utilized. "You can
only use things like that in a
show". However, Mrs. Moore is
not an unbending upholder of
the traditional school of art
which she favours. She
patiently explained to me the
meaning behind some examples
of the modern, way-out school.
So, what is the art of flower
arrangement all about? What
makes the difference between
my "arranging" a bunch of
croton leaves and they'd
look like just that, an untidy
bunch of croton leaves and
what Mrs. Moore does?
The attributes of flower
arranging are (Mrs. Moore
says): --
(1) Beauty: To arouse
interest and give pleasure
(2) Simplicity: Elimination
of all unnecessary details to
give an uncluttered effect.
( 3) i expression:
Communication of an idea,
emotion, mood or story.
(4) Harmony: unification of
the component parts into a
whole.
The principles of design in
this art, says Mrs. Moore, are
Balance, Dominance, Contrast,
Rhythm and Scale.
Further to Mrs. Moore's
comparison of flower arranging
with painting she also says that
paintings are excellent subjects
for studying still life designs.
Interesting examples, both
traditional and modem, in
spirit, will inspire flower
arrangers.
The Background, the surface
against which a design is seen,
is also an essential ingredient.
"It may be static, passive and
conventionally lying smooth or
it may be active, integrated and
exerting a dynamic design
force for optical excitement
and vitality."
Every design of plant
material involves the following
factors: selecting the
elements and constructing the
design.
"Flower arranging", Mrs.
Moore continued, "is the art of
organizing design elements in
cut plant material and such
other components as may be

appropriate ending to this
article.

Critical, but not hopeless


EDITOR, The Tribune
This is really an interesting
period in our history. We have
the battle of the sexes, battle
of the politicians, and now it
appears that labour is flexing
its muscle against government.
I haven't written any letters
lately, and, of course, my
friends are always asking why.
I don't really know, I must
admit to being busy, but not
busier than when I sometimes
wrote two a week, but again
when one realizes that I have
covered a span of thirty one
years putting in. as the
Bahamian saying goes. my two
cents worth I only hope that
my tardiness in writing now
doesn't mean that somewhere
in my subconscious mind
I realize it is a waste of
time.
I don't really believe that
the situation is hopeless, it may
be critical but not hopeless
because more and more
Bahamians are now openly
expressing their opinions
through the media of our local
press, and those not able to so
express themselves are just
talking, and all one needs to do
is listen. To give an example, I
stopped in a bar one evening
and was attracted by a
discussion where the speaker
holding sway was lamenting
the fact that his one regret was
he didn't have the education or
the ability to adequately
express his feelings in a letter
to the newspapers on the
condition of this country
today. There is widespread
unemployment he said
although the Prime Minister
did say there are ten thousand
Jobs available.
When we took over this
government, he continued,
there were two jobs for every
worker and if one was
physically able to he could
work around the clock. The
only people today who have
two jobs are members of
parliament, while we who
made it possible for them to
have two jobs have none for
ourselves. If what that young
man said was true in all details
I certainly learnt something by


listening because he went on to
name names and business
ventures since these people
were elected to parliament.
It is really amazing and quite
comical reading about the feud
between the two sexes. As a
youngster, it was quite an
event when women ventured
into wearing slacks men were
quite adamant and clear on the
point that only the men would
wear the pants (the long ones
of course) in the family. Now
the men of today wear high
heel shoes, have their hair in
curlers and the only way one
can sometimes tell the
difference is when a woman
happens to have a prominent
bust-line. I am not taking sides
in this dispute because both
sides have valid points to their
credit, but if a man wants to be
respected as such then he at
least must appear to be a man
and act accordingly.
On the other hand a
woman's task is way harder
than a man's because for a long
time this was considered to be
a man's world, and he is
supposed to be the head of his
house. There are sonic career
women who want the saine
freedom as a man in the sense
that the woman would pass the
man in the doorway with her
over-night bag and say darling 1
may he back on the last flight
tonight or the first flight
tomorrow morning. Now it
friction is to be avoided
between the parties involved
there must be a clear
understanding of the demand
that the woman's employment
entails so that the husband
would know in advance rather
than when he passes his mate
in the doorway.
As a man my only gripe
against some of our ladies is
their mode o( dress. Ours is a
tourist oriented economy
where all types of people
coverage and display various
modes of dress. Many of our
tourists, it would appear, try to
wear as little clothing as
possible and our ladies, not to
be out-Lhdne, follow suit What
our girls fail to realize is that
these visitors are only here for

a few days, but this is our
home and when a man admires
a woman on the street it isn't
because of her being nude, but
because of what she is wearing
that reflects her appearance.
1 was told a story at one of
our men's meetings which
adequately expresses what I am
trying to say to our ladies. The
setting of this story is on the
bank of a river in England
where two schools are located
onie for men and the other for
women. At a designated time
of day the men went swimming
and since the women were not
allowed on the men's campus
they usually went swimming in
the nude. After a swim one day
they were having a sun bath
when suddenly they heard
giggling, and looking up they
saw a group of girls viewing the
scenery. The men grabbed their
towels and covered what they
thought was the most
important part of their
nakedness, but one young man
covered his face. After the girls
had left he was asked by his
companions why did he cover
his face? Because he replied,
around here I am known by
my face.
Respect cannot be bought, it
need not be demanded, and
any individual whether man or
woman whose deportment is
such finds that it is
reciprocated by his fellowman.
Labour is flexing its muscle
against government, but
government is so dishonest in
its dealings with the people of
this country I don't blame
labour, any way I'll discuss this
a little later.

EDITOR, The Tribune,
I would appreciate it if you
published in your daily paper
at your earliest convenience,
the attached article written by
me, entitled 'A Christian's
View On Gambling'. Debate on
this subject of gambling is
lively, therefore I trust that my

A CHRISTIAN'S VIEW
ON GAMBLING"
By Colin B. Archer
In recent weeks there has
been renewed interest
concerning gambling and its
related agencies. The following
is intended to remind Christian
Citizens and inform
non-Christian citizens of some
implications involved in
gambling. My hope is first, that
this article will provide the
basis for further discussion and
serve as impetus to resist and
intelligently confront the
so-called 'gambling fever' now
being experienced in wide
segments of individual and
corporate Bahamian life;
secondly, that the recently
appointed House of Assembly
select committee to enquire
into the numbers racket in The
Commonwealth of the
Bahamas might regard this
contribution as a reasonable
and worthwhile point of view
in the debate on gambling.
The characteristic features
of gambling are; (a) a
determination of the
possession of money or value
by an appeal to chance:(b) the
gains of the winners are made
at 'the expense of the losers,
and (c) gain is secured without
rendering in service or in value
the equivalent of the gain
obtained.
Primarily gambling takes the
following forms:-
Gaming or playing for
money in a game of chance.
Betting or staking money
on a doubtful or uncertain
event.
Lotteries, numbers racket,
sweepstakes, which may be
defined as the distribution of
prizes by lot or chance.
Gambling speculation.
For -xample, in the realm of
finance and commerce there
are sometimes transactions
which have no relation to the
legitimate production,
marketing or distribution of
goods, but are based upon the
fluctuations of market prices
and in essence consist of an
attempt to gain through the
loss of other people without
rendering any commensurate
service. This has sometimes
been referred to, rightly or
wrongly, as 'unscrupulous
capitalism'.
There are certain

'unjustified'
EDITOR, The Tribune,
Despite the tact that all
energy fuels are rising in
costs, it came as a severe
shock to me to see the new
price of cooking gas.
I can readily appreciate the
need for an increase in the
price of every type of fuel,
but a price rise of this
magnitude seems unjustified.
Cooking gas, sir, is a
breadbasket item and one
would think that the
appropriate minister should,
if he cares about the
grass-roots (of whom I am
one), should require an
accounting in this matter.

the public.


gambling


fundamental guidelines or
principles adhered to by a
substantial number of those
who belong to the Christian
Faith, in the light of which
gambling practices are seen.
First of all, the Christian
attitude to God and life is
essentially one of trust in the
Fatherly care and providence ot
God for all human beings and
all creation. From this attitude
of trust comes the obligation
to live in wholesome and
intelligent co-operation with
the Divine purpose for human
life. The Christian motive must
therefore determine all life and
service, including economic
effort and the acquisition and
use of money. Gambling is
clearly contrary to amn
acceptance of the Divine will
and providence. Belief in luck
cannot be reconciled with faith
in God.
In the second place, we live
together in the relations of
human society. Ideally,
communal life is love of our
neighbour as ourselves, and the
binding ties of human
fellowship are to be realized in
mutual obligation and love.
Consequently, with this law of
neighbourly regard, indulgence
in gambling cannot be
reconciled A community in
which the sovereignty of
chance and disregard of
neighbour and moral law
prevail, cannot be a
community where
righteousness and human
dignity dwells.

Thirdly, Christians are
sustained in the Christian way
of life by the fellowship of the
Church. Participation in this
fellowship involves obligations
as well as privileges, in
particular the obligation to
uphold the standard of life
which it is the Christian
responsibility to exalt. Within
the Christian fellowship then,
nothing can be condoned
which would imperil the
witness of the Church and
one might add the witness of
the State to the standards
both of personal behaviour and
social righteousness.
Your attention is now being
directed to four commonly
held standards and conventions
used to condone gambling, and
I direct a brief criticism of
each.
ECONOMIC SELF OR
CORPORATE INTEREST:
The resort of gambling as a
means for procuring the
transfer of wealth by the
appeal to chance without equal
service rendered is facilitated
by the prevalence of motives of
economic self-interest in
industrial and commercial life.
Obviously, the desire for
money as an instrument of
economic exchange and power,
acts as a strong factor in
promoting gambling in all its
forms.
Attempts are constantly
made to confuse the issue by a
false comparison of gambling
with insurance against fire,
accident and the like. However,
genuine insurance to cover
inescapable risk, is a means
whereby the community shares
the risks of the individual, and
is therefore in its true use the
opposite of gambling. FALSE
APPEAL TO THE SPIRIT OF
ADVENTURE: There is in
human nature a genuine and
wholesome love of adventure,
and this in itself is good and
necessary for man's total
development. However, to
appeal to the spirit of
adventure as a justification for
gambling is illicit. It should be
frankly recognized that drab
and unwholesome conditions
of life often foster this appeal,
but to plead escape from
socio-economic problems, and
the monotony of material
surroundings or boredom really
evades the true explanation of
the resort to gambling among
both rich and poor. In fact this
combination of adventure and


gambling is quite often an
admission of social and moral
bankruptcy and the lack of a
solid spiritual foundation and
direction for the common
good.
DEBASEMENT OF
SPORTSMANSHIP:
Sportsmanship and adventure
are firmly linked.
Sportmanship is an ideal which
makes strong appeal, and its
finer and more noble elements,
such as the team spirit, playing
the game for its own sake and
chivalry to opponents, are a
valuable communal asset. But
gambling introduces a spirit
alien and debasing to true sport
and therefore tarnishes its
value, as well as encourages the
destruction of the total human
being, body, mind and spirit.
AN IMPAIRED MORAL
STANDARD: The convention
that claims gambling as morally
justifiable is actually
disaproved by the deteriorating
effects of gambling on
character. It is certainly true
that the more widespread
gambling practices become, the
more evident are the
unwholesome and evil results
as revealed in the record of
crime, unemployment,
commercial disaster -
especially for the common man
- and human tragedy. It is not
accidental that institutions
such as the Mafia often have
close connections with
gambling! Furthermore,
addiction to gambling tends to
create moral indifference and
to undermine moral
responsibility, self esteem and
self help.
This point has been well
documented through a number
of sociological, economic and
national experiences, surveys,
studies and commissions. It is
one reason why in recent
months the Jamaican
Government brought to an end
The Jamaican National
Lottery, which had previously
been conducted under its
auspicies and with its blessing.
Good common sense, a keen
and honest social conscience
and the disciplines of biblical
and systematic theology clearly
indicate that no sanction for-
gambling can be found in the
Christian attitude to God, man
and nature.
It seems to me that our
Commonwealth Of The
Bahamas has an almost unique
Constitution in that it spells
out in no uncertain terms that
our new and modern nation
will be built on the twin pillars
of 'Democracy' and 'Christian
principles'. Our country now
has the opportunity to
demonstrate in clear, clean and
practical terms what it means
to actually live and be
governed by Christian
principles. Gambling is not a
Christian principle! Any
proposed or intended
legislation should be
vigorously discouraged
Church and State alike. The
biblical injunction,
"Righteousness exalts a
nation", is perhaps more true
today than it was hundreds of
years ago when it was uttered.
Furthermore, government
and private sectors should
continue to foster ambitious,
creative and useful models of
community development, both
human and artistic, which will
naturally minimize and
eventually eliminate the
intense desire and freeness
mentality evidenced among so
many of our people. Seeking to
get something for nothing and
fostering groundless utopian
speculation through gambling
is not the way ahead for a
people who want to become a
TRULY GREAT NATION.
Essentially, resort to
gambling is a virtual denial of
faith in God, neighbour and an
ordered universe, putting in its
place an appeal to blind
chance, which is prompted'
neither by love, reason oi
rectitude.

DISCUSSION ON OUR LEGAL SYSTEM


THE BASIC RULES by which the people in a
democratic country are governed can be found in their
constitution. And the authority and ground rules agreed to
in such a document are upheld by three institutions: the
executive, the legislature and the judiciary.
The reason behind the creation and presumed
"independent" functioning of these three institutions in the
Bahamas, with its 3'/4 centuries of British influence, is to
provide the necessary "checks and balances" which would
prevent any one person or institution from seizing complete
power within a democratic system of government.
The Thursday night 8:30 edition of the Public Affairs
Department's feature programme "Spotlight" on Radio
Bahamas will take as its theme for discussion "The


Functioning of the Legal System in an Independent
Bahamas."
Participating in the programme are Senator the Hon. Paul
L. Adderley, Attorney-General and Minister of External
Affairs, and above from left to right: Salathiel Thompson,
Bahamas Commissioner of Police; the Rev, Dr. R. E.
Cooper, President of the Bahamas Christian Council; the
Chief Justice of the Bahamas, the Hon. Leonard J.
Knowles; the Hon. Arlingtion Butler, M.P., Speaker of the
House of Assembly; and Geoffrey Johnstone, President of
the Bahamas Bar Association. The discussion will be chaired
by Mr. Butler, and "Spotlight" will be introduced by Calsey
Johnson of Radio Bahamas.

he said.
"I think special praise must
go to Brian Seville who did a
great job in the midfield
throughout the whole game."
Brynas manager, Arne
Ottefalk was pleasantly
surprised by the Nassau Xl's
performance.
Ottefalk said: "We really
didn't expect the standard of
football to be so high. The
team haven't played for a
couple of months because our
season runs from April to
October but I'm not making
excuses, the Nassau XI played
well."

into the net.
Dale saved well in the 42nd
minute and Crozier cleared
off the line in the 44th to
keep the score at 1-0 to
Brynas at half-time.
A brilliant save from

Ranked fourth in the British Co nmmonwealth welterweight
division and tenth by the World lBc_.xing Council, 21-year-old
Obed took control late in the first rour-id and floored Lankester in
the fifth.
With a swollen eye and bloodiedno= seLankester was unable to

Lankester. of Seattle, Washington andM ranked fifth in the North
American ratings weighed in at 155 -pounds, two pounds more
than Obed, and last night took hisse -cond loss in 21 fights. tHis
first loss went to Art Hernandez, also (f Washington.
The aggressor in the first round I.ii4 .ler constantly moved in
on Obed in search of a quick victory. He was momentarily
stopped in his tracks with a left h ook that caught him off
balance.
Lankester, however, easily recoverecla and moving forward tried
to crowd his younger opponent Obed would not let him have his
way and countered with lefts and rights-.
Nearing the end of that round, La-rnkester was the victim of
Obed's dangerous lefts all of which caught him on the head.
Obed opened the second round wit h a left/right combination
and continued with straight jabs, taking the fight his way. The
third and fourth rounds saw no major -hange in Obed's attack.
Unable to evade Obed's sizzling pu inches. Lankester switched
to a body attack. This came to nouse. He was met by uppercuts.
Going into the fifth round. Obedo0pened up with an uppercut
followed with a right cross and a left: hook, sending Lankester
stumbling to the canvas.
By the end of the round, Lankester- it seemed had tried all he
knew but to no avail. All he got thenw-asa bloodied nose.
To a few Bahamian fans, Lankester -was not as hard a fighter as
they thought. "Obed seems to thrive on fi:ce
competition." noted promoter Wilf:red Coakley. "Every time
you put Obed in for a severe testit makes the prognostication
look kind of silly."
Obed in his last 12 bouts knocked utten. Only Roy Goss and

perfection leads to the top


By Gladstone Thurston
STRAC( 11AN 'S Auto
player/coach Jerome Barney
believes in being a
perfectionist. So he decided to
use this season's action to build
a viable squad.
But he was in for a surprise.
With nearly half of the team
rookies, the former Budweiser
Fagles are nouw holding the
number one spot in the
Paradise .cague a half game
ahead of the Classic Pros and
one game away from defending
champs the Kentucky
(olonels.
"I'm really surprised that we
are in first place." he admitted.
"After looking at the classicc
Pros' roster. I thought that
they were going to be the class
of the league." Strachan's from
II played his lost only two.
Barney attributes their
success so tar to the
outstanding performances of
forwards Bertic Johnson,
Lionel "Snake" vanss and the
overall unselfish attitude of his
players.
"The type of ball players we
have this year is different from
last year," he said. 'These guys
are playing team ball." Both


Johr nson and Ivans are
aver--aging double figures in
poir-itsand rebounds.
" -Bertie is beginning to think
a ILnt now and if Snake can
con-ie round, I think we can be
afo -reeto reckon with."
A_.nd yet, Barney and the
Mec--hanics are by no means in a
comfortable spot. "The teams
in this league are so well
blarinced that when a team gets
ager-od night, they are liable to
kno ck off any other team,"
Barr-mey said, pointing out the
Pros loss to the Warriors. "Last
year, it was like a three team
leag _ue."
holding a 19 and two record
wit--i one game left to play and
the other teams four games
bacl-k is what Barney calls
comfortable. "All the teams
havoc improved greatly."
F -ans tend to divide the
Paradise League into three
cate -gories viz Strachan's, the
Colc3nels and the Pros in the
first John Bull, the Warriors
and the Police in the second
with- Schhtz and the Nangoes
in vthe third. From the first
cate -gory they say will come
the first, second and/or third
plac e team with the second


category picking up the
remainder.
Barney does not agree with
this too much. lie would not
leave the Warriors out of the
action. "They are playing top
calibre ball." he said. Barnev
most of all admires the work of
playmaker John "Kong"
Wallace. "Kong," he said
"keeps the Warriors in the
game. I think he is the key to
the Warriors success this year."
Actually, a guard with the
characteristics of Wallace or
the Pros' Sharon Storr is what
Barney is looking for now.
"One that can take charge."
The physical abilities of the
Police Royals and the Fox Hill
Nangoes must not be
overlooked, he added. With
improvement coming from
Allie Rolle and Merill Johnson,
John Bull can play with any
team.
Nevertheless, with what he
has a nine member roster
together with fine
performances from Nassau
League rookie champ Prince
Se p b u r n and
rookie Bernard Davis, Barney is
already proving to the "big
shot" teams of the league that


Strachan's Auto is the team to
beat.
He look- at Becks Cougars'
long successful reign and found
that it was due to team work
and strong defence. This he
emphasises to his players
before each game. However,
the defence he would like to
play the full court press he
finds difficult to perform at all
times due to his limited roster.
Being one of 12 players
chosen to represent the
Bahamas in their return
tournament to Luxembourg
later this month, Barney, a
13-year cage veteran is very
much impressed with the
quality of basketballers in the
Bahamas. When taking into
consideration the players the
Bahamas has in various schools
in the United States, "I feel
that the Bahamas can do
something in the 1976
Olympics as far as basketball is
concerned," he said.
Having played against the
Cuban national team in 1971,
the year they were third,
Barney feels that the Bahamas
now has as good talent as they
have. 'The only difference is
that the Cubans are well
disciplined and well coached."

gaps in the Paradise defense, but Sherman

In other games, the Rebels ladies put
up a strong fight as it went down to the
Arawaks, 1-0. The Buccaneer ladies shut
out Paradise, 3-0, and the Bucs men
convincingly defeated Arawaks "A", 3-1,
to move into a second-place tie with

Strong at the back.

Dick Wilson.
Playing good crisp football,
the Swedes dominated for
most of the first half but the
Nassau midfield combination
of Fullone and the powerful
Seville held up well under the
pressure.
In defence, Crozier was as
always a pillar of strength and
Cole and Stewart backed up
by fine saves from Dale in

scoring for 30 minutes.
