DECEASED'S WIFE IN STATE OF SHOCK

FOLLOWING FIRST KNOWN HOTEL SLAYING


Ohio


lawyer


By SIDNEY DORSETT
THE BRUTAL MURDER of a visiting member of the
Ohio State Bar Association whose blood-stained body
was discovered slashed to death in his hotel suite by his
wife and several friends around 11 p.m. Wednesday
forced police to tighten security on Paradise Island last
night and today.


A combined team of fifty
police investigators and
uniformed officers were
stationed on the island in
search of clues and the location
of the murderer of Ma:.silon,
Ohio attorney Paul Howell, 50.
Howell, here with his wife
Martha and o t hIer
conventioneers of the Ohio
State Bar Association, was
found dead in his room, 1523
of the Holiday Inn Hotel which
overlooks the eastern section
of the island, about 10:30 to
11 p.m., a C.I.D. spokesman
said.
Mrs. Howell. described as
being in a state of shock after
the discovery, was not able to
be seen.
Mrs. Howell and her
husband arrived hern with the
group of conventioneers last
Sunday and were due to leave
Nassau at the end of the w'ck,
MOTIVE
Police said that the moti\e
of the slaying was beli.t-ed to
have been robbery. Mr. howell,
along with his wife and some
friends were downstairs :u the
hotel's lobby on their way out
whe.i he remembered he had
forgottenn something an11
returned to his r'.-utn to collect
it, a C.I.D. spokes. n said.
I .. ii, i , !ap I seC
since returning to the room, his
wife and friends decided to go
to his 15th floor suite where
his slashed body was found.
The room, closed to hotel
staff by members of the C.I.D.
at work inside, showed signs of
a struggle having taken place,
the spokesman said.
And large blotches of
blood-stains were visible on the
light green shag carpet and wall
of the suite's entrance area.
Police also stated that the
weapon used was a knife or
some other sharp instrument.
Entry to the room, which was
locked when the Howell's left
it, appeared to have been made
with a key, police said.
FIRST MURDER
The incident is the first
known murder ever to have
taken place in Bahamian
hotels.
Work activity at the llolida.
Inn seemed normal among staff
workers who all seemed to
have heard of the incident.
Uniformed officers were
stationed at the end of the
Paradise Island bridge near the
toll booth making a check of
entrants to the island.
Other police officers were
also engaged in combining the
island shortly after the
discovery of the murder.
Representatives of the group
were 1not available for
comment. Hotel general
manager Peter Krollpfeiffer
also declined to comment on
the incident stating that all
information was to be
channelled through police.

NIXON WELL
THE White House said today
that President Nixon is well
and has not resigned from his
office as the American chief
executive.
A White House spokesman
said he was making this
statement in response to what
he called "reports in Europe."
Reports also reached the
Tribune that Mr. Nixon had
committed suicide. These
reports were untrue.

GOVT. POLICY


ON CASINOS
OPPOSITION FNM Leader
Kendal Isaacs gave notice
yesterday that next week he
wil seek IHouse endorsement
of a resolution condemning the
Government's stated policy to
take over gambling casinos in
the Bahamas when current
licenses expire.
The resolution said:
"Whereas on Wednesday.
November 28, 1973, the Hon.
Deputy i'rime Minister and
Minister of Finance in a
conimm'nicati.on to this Hon.
Hon .,.ve ... z', Intention to
assume ownership and control
of several casinos in the
Bahamas;
"And whereas this
important policy decision was
arrived at with insufficient
consultation and public
discussion, and is against the
best interests of the country;
And whereas the
announcement of this policy
will further diminish
confidence in this country and
thus do further damage to the
ec.'loniomy
Resolved therefore that
this House condemns the said
communication, the policy
contained therein and the
manner in which the matter
was handled by Government."
Deputy Prime Minister
Arthur Ilanna's communication
has already sparked protest
from the clergy and the general
public, and two PLP
back-benchers, Edmund Moxey
of Coconut Grove and Oscar
Johnson of Cat Island, have
protested the fact that even
back-benchers had no inkling
of the policy decision until it
was disclosed in the House by
Mr. Hanna.


By Nicki Kelly
GOVERNMENT MEMBERS yesterday called for the extension
of price control in the wake of the 61.5 per cent price increase in
LPgas announced last week by Bahamas Gas and Tropigas.


And Cat Island
representative Oscar Johnson
went so far as to suggest that
government "control and
operate" thoe areas of the
economy which "seriously
affect the livelihood of the
working man."
The increase in LP gas from
$13 to $21 per cylinder
brought a number of angry
comments from Mr. Johnson.
Mr. Franklyn Wilson
(PLP-Grants Town), Mr.
George Mackey (PLP-St.
Michaels) and Mr. George
Moxey (PLP-Coconut Grove).
Describing the increase as
"drastic," Mr. Johnson said
that while members did not
have the power to vote back
the prices, he could
nevertheless speak against them
insomuchh as it affects the
livelihood of the average
person."
"It has always bothered me
that you had to pay a $20
deposit which was never
returned. Coupled with this is
the recent drastic increase.
Government," he asserted,
"should call on those firms to
explain this increase."
MONOPOLY
Another serious aspect was
that the two companies had a
monopoly in New Providence
and the Family Islands.
"It is also strange that their
increases should be exactly the
same. The way pricc; arc
running wild in this country...l
advocated and I still advocate
that certain areas of the
economy which seriously
affect the livelihood of the
working man either should be
controlled or operated by the
government."


Union leader replies to



recent charges by BEC

ENGINEERING AND GENERAL WORKERS UNION
president Dudley Williams claimed today that his union's
agreement with the Bahamas Electricity Corporation does not
require that union leaders first obtain the permission of the
general manager or his deputy to enter the Croporation's premises


to discuss grievances.
"All we need to do is notify
the department or section
head. Even though we do this,
the Deputy General Manager
(Mr. Peter Bethel) is still
saying that we have to get his
personal permission to enter
the gate to proceed with the
grievances," Mr. Williams said.
The newest flare-up between
BEC management and the
volatile union leader erupted
on November 30 when Mr.
Williams alleged police officers
attemtped to remove him from
the Corporation premises at
Clifton Pier on instructions of
the chairman, Mr. Preston
Albury,and Mr. Bethel.
Mr. Williams told The
Tribune today that the
agreement's requirement for
grievance notice was met when
notification was given through
Mr. K.L. Sawyer's office at
Clifton Pier, "yet BEC called
the police."
On the afternoon of November


30 Mr. Williams appeared at
Clifton Pier Power Station
without making prior
arrangements and, in spite of
being told by the security
guards that he was not
permitted to enter, he
"contrarily and presumptu-
ously gained entrance to the
premises."
It was under these pressingb
circumstances" that the police
was summoned but when they
arrived Mr. Williams had left
the premises already and to the
Corporation's knowledge, he
had no contact nor
communication with the
police.
"Certainly Mr. Williams was
not harassed by BEC chairman,
Preston Albury, deputy general
manager Peter Bethel nor any
member of BEC management
staff." the BEC statement said.
In seeking an orderly
Pae 9, Col. 5


One of the areas
recommended for control by
Mr. Johnson was LPgas "and
other imported foodstuffs."
The member claimed that
the energy crisis was becoming
an excuse for businessmen to
overcharge. 'This is very
important to the people over
the hill and those at Cat
Island," Mr. Johnson insisted.
EXPLOITATION
"I think we stand at a pretty
critical time on the cost of
living," Mr. Wilson observed.
He said he believed, from what
he understood of the situation,
"that there is a psychology of
inflation. When people have
reason to believe there are
major price increases around
the corner this psychology
anticipates further inflation."
Mr. Wilson asked that the
Prices Commission extend its
areas oft consideration
particularly at this time.
"Every time we have changes
there are members of the
business community who will
exploit the situation," he said.
The member expressed the
fear that the energy crisis will
lead "some unscrupulous
businessmen to go through
another round of price
increases." It was therefore
necessary for the public to
keep its guard up.
PRICE CONTROL
"Many of my constituents
find it difficult to find
employment," Mr. Mackey
protested. LPgas was a
necessity and the increase only
intensified the burden on his
constituents. He too advocated
that this commodity come
under price control.
Mr. Moxey wondered if
representatives should not call
an emergency meeting to deal
with the high cost of living.
Protested the member: "I
see monstrous hands grasping
at the throat of the poor
working man. It is time to take
positive steps to eliminate the
yoke from around the souls of
the poor people of this
country."
Responding to the points
raised, Finance Minister
Arthur Hanna said the
government was not
unwatchful of the situation,
particularly the question of
LPgas.
"Government is very
concerned when there is
evidence of a conspiracy on
prices. If that is so government
has the machinery to deal with
this."
Mr. Hanna said that some
major suppliers continued to
raise prices without
consultation.
'This is not a good
practice," he warned. "I
imagine that over the next few
weeks the energy crisis may be
an excuse for many things and
we will be blackmailed.
"Government is committed
to a course in the public
interest and it is difficult for us
to succumb to blackmail," he
said.
The Deputy Prime Minister
cautioned that the Bahamian
public "may have to tighten
their belts and prepare for the
fight."


SINCLAIR OUTTEN
centre of controversy


M.P. WANTS


CASINO FOR

CAT ISLAND
CAT ISLAND representative
Oscar Johnson is insistent that
if there is to be a new policy
on casino gambling in the
country he wants his
constituency considered for a
Certificate of Exemption.
Mr. Johnson was absent last
week when Finance Minister
Arthur Hanna announced the
government's intention to take
over the ownership and
management of the casinos
from 1978.
At yesterday's House
meeting the PLP representative
sought to make his position
clear on the adjournment
motion. He also supported the
stand made by Coconut Grove
representative Edmund Moxey
(PLP) who, as a member of the
governing party, criticized the
administration for not first
consulting with its
parliamentary representatives
before making its policy
statement.
"I believe that what the
member said is true and if I
had been here I would have
had to back his statement
publicly," Mr. Johnson
declared.
He said Mr. Moxey had his
sympathy and backing. "If that
happened you were rudely
treated."
Mr. Johnson reminded the
House that he had discussed
the question of casino
gambling on September 4,
1972, just prior to the general
election.
"I placed my position on
record at that time. I said that
if there is to be a new policy
regarding casino gambling in
the country I advocated then
and I advocate now that Cat
Island should be considered
and also over-the-hill."
"I also said that if and when
the time arose when there was
to be further discussion, my
position was that we expected
Cat Island to be considered for
a Certificate of Exemption."


DILEMMA OVER WRIT FOR BY-ELECTION DATE



FNM alleges govt. broke constitution,



but Hanna says Outten never elected

By Nicki Kelly
GOVERNMENT'S FAILURE TO CALL THE ST. BARNABAS BY-ELECTION sooner is not in
breach of the Counstitutional requirement for such elections because Mr. Sinclair Outten could
not vacate a seat he was never qualified to hold.


This was Deputy Prime
Minister Arthur Hanna's
reasoning yesterday when
Opposition Leader Kendal
Isaacs raised the point as the
House prepared to adjourn.
The Tribune disclosed
Tuesday that the Constitution
requires a by-election to be
called within 60 days after a
seat has been vacated.
It was pointed out that Mr.
Outten, disqualified because he
was not Bahamian-born, had
vacated the seat by letter to
House Speaker Arlington
Butler on October 30.
This therefore required that
the by-election be held before
December 29 when the 60-day
limit expires.
The Representation of the
People Act requires however,
that there must be no less than
35 and no more than 45 days
between the issue of a writ of
election and its return.
To comply with the time
limits imposed by the Act and
the Constitution, the writ of
election should have been
issued no later than November
25 35 days before the
December 29 deadline.
GOVT. IN BREACH
Referring to Section 67 (3)
of the Constitution, Mr. Isaacs
said it was his understanding
Mr. Outten had vacated the
seat on October 31 when the
Speaker read a letter to the
House from Mr. Outten.
Thid meant, therefore, that
the government was in breach
of the pertinent article in not
advising the Governor-General
to issue a writ at a time
when the election could have
been held within the
Constitutional provisions, Mr.
Isaacs maintained.
"I don't think it means that
no election can be held as has
been suggested in some
quarters. I am not alleging that,
but the principle is important
in that we have had a breach of
our new Constitution."
"This is a serious matter,"
Mr. Isaacs declared, and note
should be taken by the House
and the public in general that a
breach of the Constitution had
been committed so soon after
it had come into being.
"I hope it will not happen
again or that there will not be
more serious breaches which
could have serious
consequences "


GOVERNMENT DEFERS

ITS MEDICAL BILL

By MIKE LOTHIAN
PASSAGE OF THE MEDICAL ACT was delayed yesterday
when Health Minister A. Loftus Roker foreshadowed
amendments to the controversial provisions for the appointment
of the Bahamas Medical Council, which is to govern the medical
profession here.


Mr. Roker said the
amendments "are reflections of
various discussions I have had
with various members of the
profession."
Doctors expressed bitter
opposition to a section of the
bill they felt gave the Minister
virtual control over the
profession.
The bill as originally tabled
empowered the Minister to
select three members of the
seven-man council, and one of
the three "need not be a fully
licensed medical practitioner."
In addition, the Ministry of
Health's Chief Medical Officer
was to be ex officio a member
of the council. The remaining
three councilmen were to be
nominated by a medical
association.
It was also pointed out that
the Minister could revoke a
member's appointment at any
time.
NEW PROVISION
Mr. Roker told House
members yesterday that hise
amendment would propose
that two members would be
appointed by the Minister
acting in his discretion, two
would be appointed on the
advice of a medical association,
and two would be appointed


by agreement between the
Minister and the association.
The CMO would be the seventh
member, he said.
The bill went through
second reading and committal
yesterday, but as Mr. Roker
had not yet prepared the
amendments, third reading and
passing was deferred to next
week.
The Minister said there
would be other "minor"
amendments, but he did not
specify them.
MP'S RESPONSE
Prime Minister Lynden
Pindling, in response to
remarks from the opposition
bench, made it clear that
Government had to retain
some say in the conduct of the
Council's business because the
Government has to provide the
funds.
He said the legal profession,
for example, was given full
legislative control of its
activities because no
Government funds are
allocated to it.
"How, where and when
funds are spent must be
decided by those providing
those funds," he asserted.
While he was on the subject
Page 10. Col. S


Replying, Mr. Hanna
referred to the Communication
made to the House by Speaker
Butler on October 31 when he
dealt with the matter of Mr.
Outten and the St. Barnabas
seat.
"The Speaker claimed he
ought not to be in the House.
If therefore he was not a
member of the House then he
did not vacate his seat under
Section 67 of the Constitution
because he had no seat to
vacate," Mr. Hanna argued.
The Dupty Prime Minister
maintained that there was still
doubt on the question of Mr.
Outten's "vacating" the St.


Barnabas seat, and he didn't
want the public to be given the
impression that there was a
breach of the Constitution
when there may not have been.
He also observed that the
House would have to regularize
the position with regard to the
salary received by Mr. Outten,
and the matter would be raised
in the House in the
"not-too-distant future."
And repeating himself once
more on the Constitutional
issue the Deputy Prime
Minister asserted that the St.
Barnabas seat was "vacated
from the time the member
purported to be elected."


Hanna's explanation does



not clear up dilemma

By Nicki Kelly
THE UNCERTAINTY surrounding the government's
Constitutional position on the St. Barnabas by-election does not
appear to have been cleared up by Deputy Prime Minister Arthur
Hanna's explanation to the House yesterday.


Mr. Hanna argued that since
Mr. Sinclair Outten was not
qualified to hold the seat in the
first instance, then he had no
seat to vacate. Therefore the
constitutional provision
requiring an election within 60
days after a vacancy is declared
does not apply.
The Dupty Prime Minister
appears however to have
overlooked the communication
made to the House by Speaker
Arlington Butler on October
31 when he gave his ruling on
the position regarding the St.
Barnabas seat.
Mr. Butler said he had seen
copies of the birth certificates
of Mr. Outten and both his
parents.
On the basis of these
documents it was his opinion
that Mr. Outten never had
Bahamian status and was
consequently not qualified to
be a candidate in the
September general election or
to be elected in that election.
RESOLUTION
After considering the various
alternatives for declaring the
seat vacant the Speaker gave as
his opinion that Mr. Outten's
case could only be resolved by
the House of Assembly itself as
a matter of privilege.
He said that: "The House in
my view. as representing the
members of the House of
A assembly, enjoys the
privilege traditionally exercised
by the House of Commons in
the United Kingdom of
determining questions of legal
disqualifications, delegated, in
the Bahamas, under the
provisions of Article 51 of the
Constitution and Part VI of
the Representation of the
People Act 1969, (relating to
the jurisdiction of Election
Courts)."
It followed therefore that it
was "undoubtedly a privilege
of the House to provide for its
own Constitution including the
right to determine the
qualifications of its members,"
Mr. Butler advised.
On the basis of this, and
since the relevant evidence had
been supplied by Mr. Otten,
the Speaker said it was his view
that it would be competent for
the House to proceed with the
matter by resolution.
"If such resolution is passed
affirmatively determining that
Mr. Outten was not qualified
to be elected, the date of that
resolution would in my view be
the date on which the vacancy
would notionally have occurred
in the Parliamentary
representation of the St.
Barnabas Constituency;
subsection (I) of Section 28 of
The Representation of the
People Act 1969," Mr. Butler
said.
NEVER PUT
The resolution was never put
to the House however. After
reading his Communication the
Speaker informed members


that he had previously sent a
copy with a covering litter to
Mr. Outten. In this he had
advised him that "it is my
opinion that although you
were declared to be elected,
you were not in fact qualified
to be elected."
Mr. Butler then revealed that
Mr. Outten had subsequently
written him on October 30
stating that in view of the
Speaker's advice "I wish to
vacate forthwith my seat in the
Honourable House of
Assembly."
This, in the Speaker's view,
negated the need for a
resolution by the House. He
told representatives he was
therefore sending the
appropriate message to the
Governor-General so that a
by-election could be called.
ACCEPTANCE
On the basis of Mr. Outten's
letter and its acceptance by the
Speaker, one must conclude
that the St. Barnabas seat was
regarded as having become
"vacant" when Mr. Outten
wrote his letter on October 30.
This would then make it
mandatory that an election be
called within 60 days of the
vacancy having been declared

Reports from AP


LONDON Foreign Secretary Sir
Alec Douglas-Home returned from two
days of talks with Soviet leaders in
Moscow and said relations between the
two countries are "now back to
normal after the coolness of the past
two years."
The two governments agreed to
established the closest possible
contacts, including exchanges and
visits at ministerial level, he said.
British-Soviet relations were chilled
in 1971 when Britain expelled Soviet
diplomats as alleged spies.
The return to warner relations
was sealed with a communique calling
for expanded political contacts and
trade.
The communique marked the


official visit to the Soviet Union of Sir
Alec, the first trip to Moscow of a
British foreign minister in more than
five years.
The communique formally
announced the expected visit to the
Soviet Union next year by British
Prime Minister Edward Heath and an
invitation by Sir Alec to Soviet
Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko to
visit Britaiq in 1974. Heath is expected
to visit Moscow next summer.
The two ministers "took note with
satisfaction of the improvement in
relations between their two countries
and underlined the importance of
continuing and expanding political
contacts at various levels," the
communique said.


Up goes the cost



of home heating


WASHINGTON The U.S.
Cost of Living Council has
announced it was permitting
increases in prices of home
heating oil by two cents a
gallon and would order
reduction in gasoline prices at
the refinery level by one cent a
gallon.
But while consumers will
have to pay the extra two cents
for heating oil, probably
beginning in January, the
reduction in gasoline prices
probably will not be seen at
the gasoline pump.

Council director John T.
Munlop said the price actions
are designed to stimulate
increased production of
heating oil at oil refineries by
eliminating existing incentives
to produce gasoline.


lie said the one cent
reduction in price of gasoline
at the refinery level would
accomplish this purpose, but
probably never would reach
the retail level because of other
increased costs in producing
gasoline.
The increase of two cents
per gallon for home heating oil
will be about seven percent
over the present average price
per gallon of about 28 cents,
he said.
Dunlop said the council will
announce additional steps to
give refiners incentive to
produce more heating oil and
that this would probably result
in additional price increases to
consumers.

But he said the increases
would not be as much as the


two cent increase approved
yesterday.
The Cost of Living Council
also directed the internal
revenue service to begin
checking diesel fuel prices at
truck stops on major interstate
highways throughout most of
the eastern United States and
in other regions of the country,
including California.
Deputy council director
James W. McLane said the
action was taken after
complaints that diesel fuel was
being sold at inflated prices to
truckers.

The heating oil price
increase was indicated Tuesday
by William E. Simon, head of
the Nixon administration's new
federal energy administration.

Suez situation 'most serious'


TEL AVIV An Israeli
newspaper today quoted senior
observers in Jerusalem as
saying the military situation on
the Suez front was "most
serious" and Israel would not
tolerate another war of
attrition under the guise of a
ceasefire.
The influential independent
daily Haaretz quoted the
observers as saying Israel is
likely to view the Oct. 24 truce
as void if the Egyptians
continue to incite daily small
arms and light artillery
exchanges.
The military command
reports that since the ceasefire,
1 1 Israelis have been killed and
dozens wounded in shooting
incidents along the desert


fro nt, iI : Israeli
reconnaissance plane was
reported downed by Egyptian
missiles.
A senior officer said
yesterday Israeli forces along
both the Egyptian and Syrian
fronts were on high alert and
ready for renewed fighting.
Following the collapse of
truce talks with Egypt last
week, "each side is preparing
for the worst," the officer said
in a military command briefing
to the correspondents.
Military experts view the
tense Suez situation as similar
to the early stages of the
1969-1970 war of attrition
across the Suez canal.

under South Africa after World
War I.
After years of quarrelling
with South Africa over its
continued administration of
the territory, the United

South Africa's presence was
illegal and it "terminated" the

Sir Alec's visit was to normalise

blonde

tells

of sex

dates
LONDON A 24-year-old
blonde told a court that she
dressed up as a 10-year-old
schoolgirl to satisfy the
sexual desires of a man she
was told could get her work
in television.
The girl, referred to as
"Miss A" at the Old Bailey
trial, said she wore a child's
play suit and carried a teddy
bear when she called on the
man to have sexual
intercourse with him.
She was told that the man,
identified only as "Mr. Y",
was an important producer of
television commercials with a
liking for little girls.
On one occasion, she said
Mr. Y and another man
fought in turns to take her
alleged virginity while she was
dressed as a child. She said
this took place on a giant
seven-foot bed at the home of
former cabaret singer Janie
Jones.
Miss Jones, 34, is on trial
on ten charges of controlling
prostitutes and four of
attempting to pervert the
course of justice by
interfering with potential
witnesses. She has pleaded
innocent.
Also charged are her
former husband, John
Christian Dee, 34, who
denied attempting to pervert
justice, and Eric John Gilbert,
42, who denied aiding and
abetting Miss Jones.
Miss "A" told of several
appointments for sex which
she said were arranged for her
by Miss Jones who told her
the men were important in
the show business world.
On another occasion there
was a party at which two girls
took part in lesbian activities
while show business people
watched through a two-way
mirror, she said.
Later, Miss "A" said, three
men, herself and the two girls
got onto the large bed at Miss
Jones' house and joined
in sexual deviations. When it
was over, she was given five
pounds $12.
Miss "A" said that no
television work ever
materialised as a result of her
meetings with the men. Nor
was she ever offered work in
acting or advertising.
The trial continues. (AP).

LONDON The British
Government has ordered a
compulsory 50 m.p.h. speed
limit on all roads to combat
worsening fuel shortages.
Trade and Industry Minister
Peter Walker announced in
Parliament that there would bhe
new restrictions on heating in
all offices and factories and on
street and commercial lighting.
Many offices and other public
buildings have already cut
temperatures to 65 degrees.
Walker stressed in
Parliament, however: "Our
reserve position does nothing
to suggest that the government
should not take action to
ration petrol."
The steps were aimed at
cutting down Britain's energy
consumption, threatened by
the Arab oil embargo and work
slowdowns by coal miners and
key power engineers.
Walker's announcement
came hours after Norway
banned Sunday driving and
Belgium extended a similar
measure for the fourth straight
week.
Altogether, eight West
European nations have
forbidden Sunday driving.
Most of these countries also
have compulsory speed limits
ranging from 45 m.p.h. to 75
m.p.h. on some freeways.
The Norwegian Trade
Minister, Jans Evensen, also
announced that gasoline
rationing would be imposed
Jan. 7, the day Sweden and the
Netherlands plan to do the
same.
Although Walker declared
there were no immediate plans
to impose rationing in Britain,
there was still strong
speculation the government
would do so after the
distribution of ration coupons
to Britain's 16 million
motorists is completed Dec.
12. The Government says this
is being done as a precaution.
The imposition of the speed
limit spelled failure for the
government's appeal for a
voluntary 50 m.p.h slowdown
and followed a nationwide
stampede by drivers for
gasoline over the last three
days.
Motorists were apparently
convinced the coupon issue
meant rationing was imminent.
Shortages at filling stations


helped trigger the surge of
panic-buying that sometimes
brought drivers to blows as
they fought over dwindling
supplies at the pumps.
Spanish oil refineries are
operating at 70 percent of
capacity, according to official
sources, although Arab
producing countries have told
Spain she will have all the oil
needed.
A Spanish mission is now
in Saudi Arabia hoping to
ensure oil shipments to Spain
are not affected by cutbacks.
Spain purchased 26.7
million tons of crude oil worth
36.502 million pesetas $640
million during the January-J uly
period this year, official figures
showed. (AP).

Heath opens

Irish talks

BRITAIN'S Prime Minister
Idward Heath today opened
what he called an historic
conference with the leaders of
divided Ireland and said their
talks could establish peace and
security for the Irish,
lleath said he hoped the
conference at Sunningdale
would produce agreements that
would enable Northern
Ireland's new executive to take
over rule of the wartorn
province from the British.
That would allow the
Protestant majority and the
Roman C('atholic minority to
share power for the first time.

SECRETARY

BACK

IN COURT
WASHINGTON President
Nixon's personal secretary
returned to court yesterday.
Rose Mary Woods said: "If I
could offer any idea, any
proof, any knowledge of how
that 18-minute gap happened,
there is no one on earth who
would rather."
In a surprise development.
U.S. District Judge John J.
Sirica summoned Miss Woods
back to the court during a
hearing on what might have
caused an 18-minute gap in the
tape of a June 20, 1972.
conversation between the
President and H.R. Haldeman,
former White House Chief of
Staff.
Miss Woods also testified
that she thought White House
lawyers were representing her
when she appeared in court for
the first time on Nov. 8.
White House lawyers had
testified that when Miss Woods
was called to Federal Court on
Nov. 8, they had assumed she
was only going to be asked for
routine factual information
and would not need a lawyer
of her own.
When she returned on Nov.
26. Miss Woods was
represented by Charles S.
Rhyne, an attorney in private
practice in Washington and a
former law school classmate of
the President.
Miss Woods contradicted
earlier testimony from White
House lawyer J. Fred Buzhardt
and Samuel J. Powers when she
said she could not remember
ever showing them a tape
recorder and demonstrating
how she might have pushed a
wrong button on the recorder.
She testified last week that
she pushed the wrong button
while listening to the June 20
tape of presidential conver-
sations. (AP)

By ETIENNE DUPUCH
(I wrote this article a month ago and mailed it to my daughter,
Mrs. Carnon, for early publication. It should have appeared while
I was in Europe but it got covered up on her desk and was
overlooked.
(I am publishing it today because a lot of interesting things
happened on this trip. I have written a series of articles about the
places my wife and I visited,the people we met and the things we
did. But they won't be published for a couple of weeks because I
must get rid of some articles that were written two to three
months ago but are still relevant.
(It's good that this article has been delayed because I came to
Nassau on Friday, November 30th and so I have been able to
obtain a copy of the interview on sponges with Mr. Herbert
McKinney for publication tomorrow.
(I am here just in time to write the John Chaplin affair again. I
will deal with this case on Saturday).
*****ll!*
Coral Gables, Fla. November 9:- I have not been dating my
articles from Coral Gables because I write so many from here that
I am now about six weeks ahead of The Tribune. Some of my
articles do not appear for weeks after they are written. I try to
write them in a way that not many of them have to be discarded
because they have become outdated by the march of events.
I am dating this article....and asking my daughter to publish it
soon ....because I find myself unexpectedly on the move again.
My wife and I returned to Coral Gables last week Sunday from
a second visit to Grand Cayman. She continued on to Nassau on
Monday.l wrote several articles on this trip that will be published
soon because one of them deals with the most spectacular comet
of the century that is now travelling towards the sun....and the
earth....at a fantastic rate of speed and is already visible in the
heavens.
(This article was published last week Ed.)

I suppose I must consider myself fortunate because at my
age ....when many men are barely able to hobble around.... and for
most men opportunity has closed the door behind them....I1 find a
brand new career opening up to me. Today I feel more vigorous
in body and mind than at any time in my life. I suppose this is so
because I am no longer tied to the depressing uncertainties that
cloud life in the Bahamas today.
No one is ever completely free in life because we must depend
on each other for many things but I suppose I have arranged my
affairs in a way that makes me as free as any human being can
hope to become in an organized society.

As I have told you before, my daughter, Eileen Carron, phones
me every day to brief me on the latest events taking place in the
islands.
When I returned to Coral Gables last week from a second visit
to Grand Cayman I knew pretty well what my travel plans would
be until mid-summer next year. I will be moving around quite a
bit next summer.
My next appointment was for a meeting of the Caribbean
Press, Radio and Television Association in Antigua on November
26th.
I had no thought of going north again before next summer.
I am a member of the Council of the Imperial Society of
Knights Bachelor. Only a few days ago I wrote to the Secretary of
the Society telling her that i would not be able to attend a
meeting of the Council in London on November 21st.
Now it looks like I will be in London for this meeting. Had I
known in time I could have arranged for a press seat in
Westminster Abbey for the wedding of Princess Ann.
"You're going to London, daddy," Mrs. Carron informed me
when she phoned me day before yesterday.
"You're joking," I laughed.
This seemed to be out of the question at this time of the year.
"No I'm not joking. A situation has arisen that must be taken
care of immediately. One of us must do it and, as you know, I am
now tied hand and foot to The Tribune. And so the job is yours."
"Right," I agreed. "Now tell me what it is all about."
It soon proved that she had told me only half the story.
The whole truth was that she had a job for me to do in London
and in the south of Portugal....and so by the time you read this
article I will be in the area of Portugal in which events one day
over 481 years ago convinced Christopher Columbus that he had
been spared from a great danger for an important mission in life.
That mission proved to be the discovery of the new world with
the island of San Salvador in the Bahamas being chosen by Divine
Providence as his land-fall on his first voyage.
"When do you want me to leave?" I asked my daughter.
"Mummy is making the trip with you," she said. "She is in
town now booking the tickets. You will be leaving for London
next Tuesday. And if you work fast you can be back in this part
of the world for your meeting in Antigua on the 26th."
"Do you want me to come to Nassau before I leave?" I asked.
"No, Mummy will join you in Coral Gables on Sunday and you
will start your journey from that point. We're expecting you
home for Christmas. Not before."
She's the boss today. And I am her humble servant. So the old
man and his bride for over 45 years are on the move again....and
enjoying every minute of it.

During a flight to Boston last month to attend a meeting of the
Inter American Press Association I wrote an article on sponges
which was based on a story in a magazine I found on the plane.
This magazine article revealed that the sponge industry in Tarpon
Springs, Florida was established by a Greek at the turn of the
century.
I assumed that the industry in the Bahamas must have been
started at the same time. And so I based my comments on this
possibility.
A day after this article appeared my daughter told me that our
old friend Mr. Herbert McKinney had phoned her to discuss my
article on the sponge industry in the Bahamas


Mr. McKinney is now in his 80's. His memory goes back much
further than mine. And so he could tell her that, in his own


MINISTRY LETTER TO ATTACKED VISITORS


EDITOR, The Tribune,
Recent news stories and
Letters to the Editor appearing
in local newspapers concerning
the robbery of a visiting
American couple in the hotel
area in Cable Beach have
implied that the situation
could have been corrected by
the Minister of Tourism.
The purpose of this letter is
not to minimise the gravity of
the incident, but to point out
that since the opening of the
Sonesta Beach Hotel, the
Ministry of Tourism has been
attempting to initiate the
following actions: 1)
Construction of a lighted
walkway between the Sonesta


fL E Li I HE EEDI T0 R


Beach and EImerald Beach
Hotels: 2) up-grading of all
lighting between Prospect
Road and the I mnrald Beach
Hotel, ami 3) proper
maintenance of hedges and
shrubs along the ro:idway to
keep tli, inmr:c'dut t"' a low
pro"ltC,
In lhe lirs instance,
consti tirutI ( 0 ,I I walkway is
not the simple utsk it might
appear to b. since theie is
insufit ient clear ground
available n ri',. noith side of'
We.,t hay St,', i to mInke such


knowledge, sponging in the Baharmas goes back at least ten years
before the turn of the century. And lie knos that it goes back
still further than that.

This is the tragedy in a country where the:e i:k so little written
material on record.
The one good thing the P.L.P. government have done has
been to establish an Archives Department and they have been
fortunate in obtaining the services of Mrs. Gale Saunders as the
Archivist. On the few contacts I have had with her I formed the
impression that she is a very keen and capable yoting woman.
I am sad when I think of the old men and women I have
known in my time who have carried to the igr:ie with them
information that has been lost forever. The most recent to go was
Mr. L.E.W. Forsyth who was well up in his 90's ind was ;a walking
encyclopedia on Bahamian and world history. This is why I try to
get into my articles the little knowledge I lih:.' of life in the
Bahamas during this century.
Anyway, my article on sponges has served to stimulate interest.
Now some valuable information will be placed on record as a
result of research by the Archives Department with the assistance
of the island's oldest informed citizen.
** .** ** *


You know something....the young men in the government
make rules without knowing what the real situation is in the
islands. As a result of their inexperience they have succeeded in
dwarfing enterprise at a time when expansion is needed to absorb
the thousands of vounw people they are educating today without
and plan for their future absorption in the island's economy. I
They lay down a blanket rule that Bahamiians must be
found....even where they don't exist ....I ii all jobs int the Bahamas.
This attitude has had such a I ',.I., al impact on our
people that even the Prime Minister is already complaining that
there are thousands of jobs in the islands that Bah:mtiatns will no
longer take. They all want executive ositins... :il _'ast. some
kind of white collar job.
The order given to Adam and Eve in hli Garden of liden by
God that "by the sweat of thy brow shalt 1hou eat bread" is now
"for the birds" in the Bahamas.
And, of course, there are some businesses that find it difficult
to compete for top human material with the major operations in
the islands today.
It is ridiculous when the government tells The tribunee to train
Bahamians for top posts in the organization. That's what we have
been doing all our lives. We were training Bahaeiians for jobs in|
our organization long before the parents of the mnen who now
make these rules were even married.
In the old days, when a man 0o woman was trained for a job in
The Tribune it became his career. For this reason nearly all the
senior staff at The Tribune have been with us anything from 20
to 45 years.
But this is all changed now.
When an Englishman, for whom we cot Belongei's status.
decided to leave us for another job Ia few years ago. we offered
the prospect of his position to a mai who had been with its about i
19 years.
He informed us that lie had just received the offer of anotmlhe
job at Paradise Island at a higher salary than we could afiord
pay....and he was taking it.
This man was black. I emphasize this fact because tile
government is constantly complaining that black people are n i
given the top jobs except tinder political pressure.
Recently I told you about a young man also black who
was trained as a pressman in The Tribune. lie then went abroad
to further quality himself in the pliiting industry. We helped to
finance his education.
One day recently he told my daughter that he no lositer
wanted his position at The Tribune. lie wanted to be sometliinr,
else. And so he pushed off after giving us notice. We Ihav
managed to carry on only because one of our faithful seni-,r
staffers knew enough about the machines to fill the vacancy.
For years now we have been encouraging a young Bahamian ioI
prepare for one of the most important executive positions in 7he
Tribune. He seemed enthusiastic. For over three years ... when he
has come home from school in England....he has spent his
summers in the department he knew he would head one day.
On dithe basis of this knowledge my daughter wrote Prime
Minister Pindling for permission to bring in a highly trained man
to head this department and train this youngster for the position.
Mr. Pindling agreed. This was the first break for us in nearly six
years.
"You know. Daddy," my daughter told me yesterday, "I feel
like chucking the whole tluing and coining to join you abroad
It's just impossible to carry on business in the Bahamas today."
"What's wrong now?" I asked tier. She sounded completely
discouraged. She then told me that this youngster, on whom she
was pinning a lot of hope, had just told her that he has decided to
go into another field of enterprise.
"What do I do now?" she asked. "What do I tell Mr. Pindling?"
"Write to him immediately and place on record what has
happened," I told her. "And don't worry about it. Just carry on
as long as you can and any time you feel like packing it up.. just
do that. And to hell with it. I have told you a long time ago that
the Bahamas doesn't deserve a newspaper like The Tribune Just
thank God that you don't have to carry on a day longer than you
want to."

I want to make it clear that I don't blame these young people
for embracing opportunities elsewhere that seem to promise a
greater future for them.
All I am saying is that it is about time the government realized
that there are not enough Bahamians, who have the capacity for
executive positions, to meet the demands of business in the
islands today.
And so, in the crush, genuine Bahamian enterprises must suffer
because they cannot compete for staff with the big foreign-owned
operations.
In this way they are defeating the main purpose of their
declared policy by making it impossible for Bahamian enterprises
to recruit staff needed for their growth and expansion.

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY
A people get the kind of government they deserve:-

The latest addition to the Morris Marina fleet the 1974 Marina 1.8 estate wagon available at Bahamas Bus and
Truck.

Room to move in the new Marina


THIS YEAR, there is a brand new addition to the Morris
Marina range at Bahamas Bus and Truck the 1.8 Estate and it
is completely new for 1974.
The Marina 1.8 Estate is not only one of the roomiest wagons
on the market, it is also one of the most spacious and
comfortable vehicles for use as a family car as well. Although it
has more luggage space and more generous passenger
accommodation than most other wagons, it is actually less than
the others in exterior dimensions. It has a tight 31-foot turning
circle, making it one of easiest cars to park.
In the front, there are individual adjustable seats. In the back,
the roomy bench seat practically disappears when the space is
needed for luggage. With the back seat down, there is a full 58.4
cubic feet with a floor length of 62.5 inches. With the back seat
up, there is still a cargo space of 31.4 cubic feet.
The new model gives everyone a comfortable ride with plenty
of room for adults in the front and restless children in the back
seat. The rear doors are equipped with child-proof locks. There is
a deep-pile carpet for the passengers and heavy gauge rubber
matting on the luggage platform. There are five doors giving easy
access to the car and the counter-balanced tail-gate opens high for
easy loading.
Some of the standard features include through-flow


ventilation, two-speed wipers and an electric screen washer,
stylish wheel trim, fitted carpets. a locking glovebox, front door
arm rests and coat hooks.
The Marina 1.8 has classic estate car styling and is as handsome
on the outside as it is comfortable on the inside.
Like all Morris Marinas, the 1.8 is finished to a very high
standard with a multi-coat paint job. An underbody sealing
compound is applied before it leaves the factory thereby
eliminating worries about weather conditions or garaging.
The Marina's manoeuvrability is due to rack and pinion
steering which makes the car easy to handle, and servo-assisted
disc/drum brakes making it easy to control. The ride is safe and
steady thanks to radial-ply tires and torsion-bar front suspension.
The radical-ply tires are standard.
The engine is the tried-and-true and very popular 'B' series with
a capacity of 1798 c.c. It gives a good cruising speed plus all the
pulling power needed when the car is fully loaded.
Options include reclining front seats, automatic transmission,
reversing lights and a cigar lighter.
There is no doubt that the new Morris Marina 1.8 Estate will
prove a popular vehicle in the Bahamas and it may be viewed and
test driven at Bahamas Bus and Truck.

I-


What should this politician have been told when he
called up and offered to be a pallbearer?
USED
DEAR USED: "Thank you, but the pallbearers have
already been selected." IP. S. I'm curious. How did he
come out in the election?]

DEAR ABBY: My parents are planning to send my ten-
year-old brother to Europe this summer to visit his grand-
father, whom the boy has never seen. Mother says it will be a
"good experience" for him. But I'm not so sure.
I think to send a rather immature ten-year-old boy
thousands of miles from home, alone, to a strange country
to be with a strange man who speaks another language
[which my brother has never heard] will hurt him psycho-
logically. I am 23 and I know it would bother me. My
brother isn't too keen on it.
This really troubles me, Abby. After all, how can a 90-
year-old man take proper care of a young boy thru sign
language? [Grandfather speaks no English. ]
Am I foolish to worry?
DESPERATE SISTER
DEAR DESPERATE: If your 90-year-old grandfather
speaks no English, and lives alone, I can understand why
the lad isn't "too keen" on it. If there are others in the
family for in the community] with whom he will be associ-
ating, It might be a good experience for him. Don't become
"desperate" unless all the facts are in.
CONFIDENTIAL TO "LOST FOR WORDS IN CHICA-
GO": My advice on this matter is to follow the advice of
Proverbs: "Do not answer a foolish man In the language of
his folly." [(2:4].


GUILTY OF MANSLAUGHTER


Teen's celebrating-


He kicked drug habit

By Abigail Van Buren
1973m By Cica Trlsee-N. Y. News Syae., INc.
DEAR ABBY: Today I am celebrating, but I don't want
to do it alone, so I'm writing to you. What am I
celebrating? Well, I have been off drugs for six months,
and I think that's worth something. Maybe it's because I
don't need to steal or run away from home anymore that
makes me so happy. Quitting drugs was the hardest thing
I've ever done in my life, but the most rewarding.
I'd like to pay tribute to the teacher who helped me do
this. I won't mention his name, but he was the one person
who never looked at his watch during all the hours he spent
with me. My parents helped a lot. I really thought I hated
them, but I now realize it was the things I was doing that I
hated. I love my parents, and I want them to know that.
I want everyone to know how much I love life now, and
how much I love God.
Six months going on 60 years, because I know I will
never go back.
Please print this. There is so much in it I could never
have the courage to say out loud. Maybe this will help
someone else.
By the way, I'm 15 years old. "ANOTHER LEAF"
DEAR LEAF: Congratulations! I'm sorry you didn't
send me your name and address. I would have enjoyed
sending you a modest but meaningful present.

DEAR ABBY: My family is just about ready to break
up over this problem, which may not have a solution.
Maybe you can tell me if I am in the wrong.
My husband and two partners have two establishments
which they call "Health Studios." But they are really
massage parlors which employ pretty young girls who mas-
sage men, and you can imagine what other services they
sell.
Abby, we have three school-age children who have
come home in tears because of what the kids at school are
saying about their father.
I have begged my husband to get out of that business
and go back to selling, but he says he's making good
money and will stay with it as long as he can.
When my husband was a salesman he didn't make as
much money, but it was respectable, and we were happy.
Am I wrong? RATHER HAVE LESS IN OHIO
DEAR RATHER: No. But don't give your husband an
ultimatum unless you're prepared to leave him.

DEAR ABBY: Our problem is kind of touchy, family-
wise. Every other Sunday we go to a relative's house for
dinner. We enjoy these visits, but they are on an organic
food kick, and that is all they serve.
This 'means lots of tasteless, unseasoned food, and no
-meat at all. The dinners they serve may be appetizing to
them, but not to us.
They are aware that we do not follow their organic diet
at home. Would we be considered rude if we brought our
own meals after this? MEAT EATERS
DEAR MEAT EATERS: You know your relatives bet-
ter than I do. If you think they would be offended, tell them
you will skip dinner, and join them afterwards.

DEAR ABBY: I enjoy your stuff. When I attended Tu-
lane University, I told my professor that I was raised in
Shreveport, La.
He said, "You RAISE hogs and REAR children."
You mentioned that you were raised in a small town.
Tell me, Abby, were you RAISED or REARED?
Love mit kissses,
HENRY
DEAR HENRY: In "The Careful Writer," Theodore M.
Bernstein Iwhom many consider the Supreme Court of
American journalism] put it this way: "At one time, a war
raged land some skirmishes are still going on] against the
use of "RAISE" to describe what parents do to children.
The battle cry was. 'You raise pigs, but you rear children.'
However, in this country at least, the war is over; we
RAISE bath pigs and children, and some parents will testify
that you can't always tell the difference." Right on, Mr. B.!

DEAR ABBY: We recently had a death in our family
and a local politician who was running for office called up
and asked if he could be a pallbearer. He took the members
of the family by such surprise they said yes. We had al-
ready selected the pallbearers but we were so upset at the
time we weren't thinking.
This politician was the first to sign the guest register,
and he went around shaking hands and slapping everyone
on the back like it was a campaign rally. He sure got in the
public eye at that funeral which is the only reason he
wanted to be a pallbearer. He hardly even knew the de-
ceased or any of the family.
When it was all over we realized how we had been used.

EDITOR, The Tribune,
The recent shock disclosure
that Mr. Sinclair Outten, elected
representative for St. Barnabas in
the past General Elections, was
not born in the Bahamas still
leaves a deafening ring in the ears
of many, and a big question mark
in the minds of voters who will
be called, very shortly, to the
polls once again in that
constituency.
The nomination of Mr. Arthur
Foulkes by the FNM ,as their
standard bearer in this
by-election further confuses
voters and, on the whole,
presents a formidable challenge
for the PLP who took this seat
like a storm in the Sept. 19
General Elections.
It has been suggested that the
reason why the PLP is running
Mr. Outten again in this district is
because there is a large
population of Turks Islanders in
St. Barnabas and the party is
expecting an easy win, once
again, for Outten.
Be that as it may, as a Turks
Islander myself, I have been
seriously comparing both
candidates to see how this
country and especially the
large Turks Island community -
might benefit best from the
election of either of these men.
There is no doubt that there is
a large PLP following among
Turks Islanders in this country. I
know because I'm one myself.
There is also no doubt that many
Turks Islanders, who helped to
bring to power this very PLP

government in 1967, have
become disappointed and
disillusioned with the PLP
especially now they have
harassed out people since taking
office.
But Mr. Outten is a Turks
Islander, you might say. Very
good. This brings me closer to
the point I wish to stress.
We are justly proud that a
Turks Islander can get elected to
the Bahamian halls of legislature!
This is in order, since there are so
many of us who help to form the
nerve and sinew of this great
little nation! Bravo! But the
crucial question is what benefit
has this Turks Island politician
been to his own people?
Has Mr. Outten represented
our interest anytime
during this long political career
on his brief period in Parliament?
I say no. Instead, this man has
turned a deaf ear to the woes and
affliction of his poeple, and only
now is admitting to having been
born among us. Instead didn't he
conspired with the PLP against
us? Did someone cry, "Traitor"?
You be the judge.
But on the other hand what
has Mr. Foulkes, a Bahamian,
been doing for us? When this
Government perpetrated that
gross injustice against our people
at Inagua, who represented their
cause? Who fought their battle
until, out of pure shame and
guilt, Mr. Pindling was forced to

investigate into the case of the
Turks Island families who were
ruthlessly uprooted at Inagua and
sent packing because their
Bahamian wives dared to support
the party of their choice? Did
Mr. Outten, who was then a
member of Parliament, breathe a
single sigh of sympathy for those
families?
You might say that had Mr.
Outten spoken out against
Government in this matter he
might have confirmed the
suspicions of many that he
himself was a turks Islander. This
is the whole issue. If this man
was no help to us when only
some suspected he was not a
Bahamian how can he help us
now that it is general knowledge
he is a foreigner?
Would not Opposition
members and some of his own
colleagues throw this matter
into his face everytime they
clashed in private or public
debate? Mr. Outten should
expect that even if he is
re-elected to the House he would
be reduced to no more than a
puppet to be manipulated at will
by his party and anyone who
wants to take advantage of his
delicate, paper-made status.
My friend the general feeling
among Bahamians at large is, and
always will be, "If you een born
in de Bahamas you een born!"
But let's examine Mr. Foulkes.
Arthur Foulkes was born at
Inagua. He grew up among Turks
Islanders on that Island. He
knows that they are real people
who can feel, see and think just
as good and to some extent
better than their Bahamian
counterparts. Mr. Foulkes, I dare
say, understands our people. He
feels the pain we feel when one
of our fellowmen falls prey to
the brutality of this heartless
Government. He stuck his neck
out for us in the Inagua situation
when our own flesh (Outten)
remained silent. Like a lone wolf
but aTierce lion Arthur Foulkes
through his newspaper column,
took our case to the outside
world and did not rest until some
semblance of justice was done. I
say this man has proven himself


to be our friend. Support him!.

appear in the book stores in a
long time 'Bahamian
Jottings' by Wilhelmina Kemp
Johnstone.
Mrs. Johnstone was born in
1900. She grew up during
those tranquil, sleepy days
when people left their houses
unlocked at night, when it was
possible to amble unhampered
down the middle of Bay Street,
and when most families kept
chickens in order to have fresh
-eggs.
In 1924 Mrs. Johnstone
married Canadian Bruce
Johnstone of Halifax, Nova
Scotia, who came to Nassau on
the staff of the Royal Bank of
I Canada. He died in 1945
leaving her a widow with three
children well known
barrister-at-law Geoffrey
Johnstone, Mrs. Pam Raine
(the eldest) of the Linen Shop
and her youngest, Peter, of the
Trust Corporation of the
Bahamas Ltd.

In her book, she recalls
those earlier days in delightful
poems and nostalgic prose.
Mrs. Johnstone has been
writing for many years but it
was only on the urging of
friends to get what she calls her
"stuff" together that she began
seriously thinking about
putting out a book. Readers of
'Bahamian Jottings' will be
indebted to those friends for
instieating a book which will

delight the young as well as the
old who remember, the tourist
as well as the Bahamian who
naturally can picture the scenes
and the people more clearly.
There are photographs of
old Nassau, many of which are
museum pieces, and also of
present day Nassau.
FRIENDS
In her "Word Portraits of
Local Friends." Mrs. Johnstone
recalls "a very odd looking
little coloured lady with a
swinging gait that is to me
strangely familiar." The
woman is Maria, pronounced
to rhyme with "fire". She was
a sponge clipper who clipped
by the hour with her gingham
skirt hitched around her hips
with cords showing "bare.
skinny almost shrivelled legs."
The children, the young Mrs.
Johnstone included, haunted
poor Maria mercilessly with the
chant "Maria, Maria, she
jumped in the fire...". But
Maria didn't seem to mind. "A
broad grin would spread over
her face when the song
started."
George was a janitor-messen-
ger by day in the summer and a
prize fighter by night in the
winter.
Frances wore "a long, black
voluminous dress" and "a
spotless white apron with huge
pockets She came to Mrs.
Johnstone's shop to pay a
debt. She didn't want to leave
her name on the books because
if she died, her soul might not
rest in peace.
Savalita sold fruit from a
basket on the street. An old
friend who practically grew up
with Mrs. Johnstone, she
sought her out when she found
that Mrs. Johnstone had been
ill.
Mrs. Johnstore has a feeling
for these old puopi:l wo., were
then young people and her
friends. But sponge clippers are
hard to find these days and
soon it may be beneath one's
dignity to sell fruit from a
basket on the street. IHer word


they had left a debt behind..
In her section on,Bahamian
dialect, Mrs. Johnstone rightly
says: "It is a heritage which has
been handed down to us from
the past and needs to be
cherished and protected, rather
than to be looked askance at,
or condemned as bad English."
She delves into the intricacies
of the dropped and added
letters and words which make
the dialect unique to the
Bahamas. This is followed by
three hilarious examples
written in dialect, each of
which exhibits the humour
that is so closely tied to this
form of speech.
DEEP LOVE
Mrs. Johnstone's poetry
shows her deep love for
everything Bahamian and for
the small things of life which
so often go unnoticed or
unappreciated in this day of
jaded sophistication. Her
home, her garden, her children,
animals, Christmas all are
subjects for her talented pen.
Mrs. Johnstone not only
possesses a talented pen but
also a talented hand with the
artist's brush. There are several
paintings to illustrate her
poems as well as many
charming drawings of those
little things which she loves so
much a child sleeping or
flying a kite, a lizard, a toad, a
crab.
'Bahamian Jottings' offers
the proverbial "something for
everyone." Older people will
delight in the reminiscences of
old-time Nassau. Young people
may wonder if life could ever
have been so tranquil and
unhurried. Children will
cherish the poems written
specially for children like
themselves. But the most
important contribution this
book will make is not its
beauty, its charm or its love.
'Bahamian Jottings' records
history, not of battles or
treaties, but of the day-to-day
lives of Bahamians and their
children in an era that is gone.
They say that one can never go
home again but this book
allows the reader to travel back
just a little way not home,
but almost.

such automated machines can

THE UNITED States
Treasury Department has
confirmed that three American
ten-cent coins which turned up
in Nassau on September, 25
were counterfeit, the Criminal
Investigation Department
reported.
The three dimes were
discovered by Tribune
accounts staff among cash
returns from sales depots
around New Providence.
The coins were noticed
because they were queerly
discoloured, as though from
heat, and the edges appeared to
have been hand-hammered,
creating sharp ridges.
They were slightly smaller
than genuine coins, and the
lettering, including the years of
minting, was distorted as if
from the application of high
pressure.
It was suspected that coins
were originally American
one-cent pieces, discoloured
and stamped to appear at a
cazrsory glance to be dimes.
When the discovery was
reported to Assistant
Commissioner (Crime) John
Crawley, he could not
understand why anyone
would go to the trouble to fake
ten-cent coins. But he
performed a preliminary test
which increased suspicion of
counterfeiting.

He sent the coins to Miami
for further testing, and in a
letter to Tribune Editor Eileen
Dupuch Carron this week he
said they had been examined
by the Treasury Department
and "all of the coins are
counterfeit."

could not walk into its

without making prior

Nor did the Corporation
intend to be daunted by the
union's threats to report the
matter to the Ministry of
Labour. It would, in fact,
"appreciate any effort by the
union to report this matter
fully," the statement said.
He charged that BEC was
trying to use the police to help
them in their negotiations with
the union and against the
union.
NEVER BOW
"That same evening we gave
notice to have a case taken up
with Arthur Firth on behalf of
drivers, and he told us that he
could not proceed even though
we did everything the

Mr. Williams claimed BEC
was trying to invoke a new
condition to which the union
would never bow.
He said today that once
section or department heads
were notified his men would go
through the gates and if the
police molested them the
union would file suit against
them for false arrest and other
damages

serious threat to its right to

Williams declared. The
situation might well affect his
ability to further campaign as
the labour candidate for St.
Barnabas, "but the welfare of
the workers comes first," he
said.
Mr. Williams vowed to

"It hebame necessary in

Williams and request that he

general manager or his deputy
before entering Corporation's
premises." the statement said
Prior to this, it was
explained, "Mr Williams had
been in the habit of barging
into the offices of BEC
supervisory staff without
appointments and indulging in
the use of threatening and
obscene language."

Says Joe Johnson saw Venus, not


comet Kohoutek


Thursday, December 6, 1973.


K


EDITOR, The Tribune,
There has been some
question as to whether a Mr.
Joe Johnson of East Bay St. in
the vicinity of Blackbeards
Tower was the first Bahamian
to see the comet Kohoutek. I
think it happens to be quite a
coincidence that Mr. Johnson
became aware of Kohoutek
since yesterday's Tribune
briefing on Kohoutek and
where it could be found.
To Mr. Johnson and others
interested in the comet
Kohoutek: A co-worker and I
have been keeping check and
following details of the comet
since mid-November. We never
expected to see the comet
before Dec. 1. Before then it
was not visible with the naked
eye and could have gone by
undetected unless one knew
what one was looking for and
with the aid of field glasses or a
telescope.
We have been armed every
morning with a hand telescope
plus binoculars since Nov. 29
but have been unable to see it
because of a high pressure that
has been affecting the Bahamas
the past few days. The high
pressure affects the viewing of
Kohoutek because of a series
of cloud build up after
skybreak every morning.
Before Dec. 10th Kohoutek
will not be seen in total
darkness because of its new
rising. Every morning it will
rise a little higher in the sky,
hence the reason it can only be
seen during skybreak. (That's
the time between total


darkness and sunrise.)
For those of you who are
new at star gazing here's a little
information that can help.
A planet glows
steadily, Jupiter, Mars, Venus
etc. A star twinkles, some of
them changing colours, which
is an illusion caused by
atmospheric condensation, the
distance between Earth and the
star and also the sun, similar to
the making of a rainbow. A
shooting star is usually a
meteorite or space junk
entering earth's gravity at a
high rate of speed which causes
it to ignite.
A comet is usually confused
with a shooting star. There is a
popular misconception that a
comet streaks across the sky. A
comet like earth travels in a
particular orbit and can rise as
many times in a month as the
moon can.
The reason I say Mr.
Johnson has not seen
Kohoutek is, a comet's
brightness depends on its
closeness to the sun and not
the Earth.
At 3.25 p.m. the sun cannot
streak 20 degrees in bound
earth's darkness. As for this
time zone 20 degrees sunlight
is approximately 5 10 a.m.
SNow you know why it is only
visible during skybreak). What
you have seen Mr Johnson was
Venus. sometimes called "The
Christ Star" because of its
rising during the Christmias
month

COMMONWEALTH OF THllE BAHAMAS
IN THE SUPREME COURT
EQUITY SIDE


IN THE MATTER


Kohoutek and why it shouldn't
be missed is its length. Dr.
Vasken Hagopian, associate
professor of physics at Florida
State University says "Comet
Kohoutek should rival the
moon in brightness, it should
be the most brilliant comet in
the past 100 years."
Astronomers are guessing
that during its peak viewing
period, the comet's tail will
stretch anywhere from 1/6th
to the entire sky. The sun's
heat and "wind" will make the
gaseous tail at least 100 million
miles long. Because of its orbit
it will appear to be moving
from southeast to south.
Kohoutek is in the sun's
gravitational pull hence it's
travelling in an orbit that will
take it around the sun. Those
of you interested in Kohoutek
will be interested in the
following details that will
enable you to find the comet.
What is Kohoutek? The
comet's nucleus has been
compared to a loosely packed
snowball, made of frozen water
methane, ammonia, carbon
dioxide and particles of cosmic
dust. As it hurtles towards the
sun. this mixture heats up and
forms a bright tail. Kohoutek's
nucleus is anywhere from 6 to
25 miles wide and is
surrounded by a hydrogen
'head" or cloud that is more
than 60,000 miles in diameter.
Prior to I)ec. 28 Kohoutek
will be visible just before
sunrise in the southeastern sky.
On that date. it will swing
around the sun (passing within
B 2 million miles of it) and
thereafter appear just after
sunset in the western, sky.
Jack llorkheimer, writer and
director of programming for
the Miami Museum of Science's
planetarium warns that
although Kohoutek promises
to be spectacular, it could
"'Filzle out You can never tell
with a comet." he says.
Ilorkheimer predicts flatly
"this comet will kill people.
Not directly, but by distracting
them on the highways during
rush hour or from the general
paranoia that results from the
approach of a comet.
Given if a comet smacks
directly into the earth, we
probably wouldn't notice the
effect, comets are practically
nothing and are too loosely
packed to be devastating.
Passing through the tail
would be like blowing smoke

large chunks could reach the

thin wisp of matter.
The closest Kohoutek will

its distance from sun, not

BREATHALYSER


TEST MOVE IS


RECOMMENDED
TWO RESOLUTIONS
moved by Sir Roland
Symonette (Ind.-Shirlea) in the
House Wednesday were
referred, with his agreement, to
select committees.
One of the resolutions called
on Government to consider the
advisability of introducing the
breathalyserr" test for
determining the concentration
of alcohol in the blood of
persons suspected of
drunkenness.
The second called for
Government consideration of
increasing the payments to
recipients of funds from the
Windows and Orphans Pension.
Transport Minister Darrel F.
Rolle congratulated Sir Roland
on bringing the matter of the
breathalyser to the House, and
suggested that it could best be
dealt with if referred to the
already-sitting House Select
Committee on Alcoholism.
Sir Roland agreed to the
move, and Franklyn Wilson
(PLP-Grant's Town). chairman
of the committee, also thanked
Sir Roland for bringing to the
committee's attention
something it had not
considered.
Finance Minister Arthur
Htanna suggested that the
question of increasing widows'
and orphans' pensions also be
sent to committee, because
considerable study would be
required to determine whether
it was feasible. He described
the set-up of the fund as "very
complicated."
Sir Roland again raised no
objection, and House Speaker
Arlington Butler named to the
committee Sir Roland.
Education Minister Livingston
Coakley, the PLP's George
Mackey and Sherlin Bootle and
the FNM's Cyril Tynes.
Mr. Hanna noted that, in
view of the coming
introduction of national

t sa s Sall \ with


whom I paid a visit to the
Home recently Sally explained
that in the past they had tried
spot ads with little success.
This year's concentrated
recruiting campaign has had
gratifying results, and a higher
calibre of staff has also been
attracted by increased salaries.
Mrs. Edwards, for example,
used to work at the Red Cross
crech.
I was an active member of
the Association some years
back and on my recent visit I
was impressed by an almost
radical change in atmosphere.
One member of the staff
who was "minding" the
younger ones was doing a lot
more than minding. She was
literally racing along with the
younger children and actively
participating in their games.
FINE MANNERS
Ranfurly children have
always had good manners. The
exceptional good manners are
still very much in evidence but
they are now combined with a
much greater degree of
freedom and the children
display a more natural
outgoing behaviour. It is much
more like a normal but
well-organised home than an
institution.
Much of this edifying change
I would suspect should be laid
at the feet of Mr. and Mrs.
Leslie Davies, the fairly
recently arrived house-parents.
On my recent visit to
Ranfurly I was introduced to
the Davies who both continued
quietly to get on with what
they were doing before I
arrived. Mr. Davies was
scrubbing down an old little
fridge with a wire brush
preparatory to painting it.
Previously he had also laid the
concrete tiles on the patio
saving the homes $150.
In fact. Ranfurly appears to
be very 'do-it-yourself'
orientated, which helps
conserve their precious
financial resources. Except for
the $8,000 a year government
subsidy Ranfurly is financed
by private contributions. The
house committee made new
bedspreads out of scraps of
material given to them by an
upholsterer.
TWO (0O11)I% I I S
One word about the house
committee. The 14 board
members have been divided
into half. One half spends their
time and energy on fund
raising, the other half (th2
house committee) deals with
all the day to day problems of
the home.


Grocery shopping for such a
big family has been worked
down to a fine art. Sally says
that they aim for as high a
protein diet as possible. Of
course, protein is expensive.
They' buy local products and
everything else in bulk.
Ranfurly houses children in
a wide age span from two years
to seventeen.
The nursery dormitory
caters to up to 16 babies.
The older girls' block is
divided into separate little
bedrooms to give the girls the
privacy and facilities for
storage of their own little
personal possessions essential
to children in a good home.
Miss Thompson sleeps in the
girls block so that they are
most adequately, but
discreetly, supervised.
Certainly there are no hixuries.
but toilet facilities are
adequate. In the girls' block
there are three toilets, three
baths and five face basins.
Ranfurly are tending to get
older children now. One girl is
seventeen. "We want to keep
them through their schooling,"
says Sally. Two of their girls
are now on scholarships paid
for our of Ranfurly donations
earmarked for this purpose.

RANFURLY "PARENTS" Della Davies (left) and her
with some 12 of the Ranfurly children.


I Tie Davies are not phased
by being responsible for older
children. Together the\ ran a
home for teenage boys f16-21
years) in Sussex and some of
the boys had come straight to
them out of Borstal (which is
roughly equivalent to our Boys
Industrial School).
STAFF OF 6
Both the Davies are
residential care iT i, Mrs.
Della Davies has been in this
work for eighteen years. She
has worked in state and private
Schools in England, brictfly in
an old people's home and in
numerous children's homes
under a number of c lountv
councils
Including the Davies,
Ranfurly has a stafl of six so
that there are always two
members of the staff on dutvy
All staff are supposed to have a
day and a half off' a week
which they usually do except
when minor crises arise.
Many doctors and dentists
donate their services free to the
children of Ranfurly.
I asked the Davies what th-
children called therm Thc\
looked at me at first as if I
were an idiot. I refrained fro'r
explaining the motive for nof
question I have always heen a
little put off by the children 1i1
a homem" of calling tlie house
parents M"umiunmie" and
"Daddy" In many instance it
appeared to been taught
"'We cannot be substitute
parents. Mrs. Davies said

And yet Ranfurly is more
home-like than it ever was. 'o
longer are children sitting or
standing neatly in a row. Ilicy
run and play as they would do
if they had an adequate hornm
of their own. We 'try to be as
home-like as possible under


':ititutional circumstances".
uJi Mrs. l)avies.
You who are reading this
oltumn. I assume, are doing so
because you're interested in
childrenn without homes of
hern own, in welfare and in
*'1r community. Please don't
.'rs Ranfurly off your list of
projects with the view that
!.'\ "re not in need of help.
I hle are.
Ihe 58,000 government
,.bsidy is only a drop in the
"in 03 of the funds necessary to
,.'.tquatcly rtn the home.
I hle home also depends to a
.r large extent on the
lunt,,eer work of the niembers
t* ihe association .
:5.! Ranturly is not without
.: :ir share of problems.
Money is an eternal problem
'd lunds ate low at the
moment.
I hose who read the story of
Sc-an in "Town and Around"
--'me months back may have
got some idea of problems the
Davies and the Board have to
contend with and find a wav of
sot i n with the minimum
expenditure of precious funds.
By the way. for those who
were interested in Sean's story
I will write a follow-tip in the
not too distant future.
The residential ratio of staff
to children is still too high. In
England Mrs Davies told me
that the residential ratio is 5
children to I staff at the
axinmumn and they are aiming
for three and half.
Because of the
comparatively larger residential
ratio "play is not as organized
as we'd like it to be," Mrs.
Davies said r-gretfully.
More athletic and cultural
programmes are needed. To
achieve this more residential
staff is needed to free the


husband Leslie (right) shown


Davies to concentrate more in
this area or other persons or
organizations are needed to fill
this gap.
So if you're looking for a
charitable organization to
which to donate time, talent or
money your choice need not
necessarily be that institution
which seems most desperately
in need of help.
An important criterion is
also a confidence that your
money, time or talent is used
in the most beneficial way.
And. 1, for one have
confidence that at Ranfurly it
will be.

Apropos to the story of The
Children's Emergency Hostel in
this column last week I
neglected to say that the new
house parents" are Nurse
Olive Godet and Assistant
Nurse Ida Brookes.

fromf the Carrl Righter Institute
GENERAL TENDENCIES: Take no chances
S with your possessions for judgment may not be
it its best. However, a sensible plan can be worked out by
careflly analyzing all factors of any course. Avoid the
tendency to force issues or to take issue with those who do.
ARIES (Mar. 21 to Apr. 19) See how you can build a
serve for the future. Contact an expert if wondering how to
handle some important matter. Please mate in p.m.
TAURUS (Apr. 20 to May 20) Take beauty or other
treatments to make yourself healthier and more attractive.
Postpone social matters and handle business affairs.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 21) Don't fret about things you
don't like but quietly eliminate them from your life. Close ties
am having rough sledding. Help them.
MOON CHILDREN (June 22 to July 21) Don't rely on that
friend who is usually helpful since this person has own
concerns to handle now. Forget the social and work.
LEO (July 22 to Aug. 21) Not the right day to approach
one in authority for favor you want. Make collections, pay
bills and handle other important matters.
VIRGO (Aug. 22 to Sept. 22) Get into further study that
will help you make some new plan workable. Not the right day
to make that new contact so await a better time.
LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Pay bills and clear decks for
bigger operations. Use a different approach with mate for
better results. Avoid one with eye on your assets.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You may not like ally's new
plan, but only because you don't understand it, so don't
upbraid associate. Give it time to prove itself.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Get work behind*you
instead of fretting about it. Relax in p.m. and restore your
waning energies. Prepare for.better days ahead.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 20) You want to have a good
time but it is best to travel alone since there could be trouble
with others. Drive carefully.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19) Don't be forceful with
anyone at home, or there could be serious arguments. Others
are tense, not really themselves. Catch up on your reading.
PISCES (Feb. 20 to Mar. 20) Much care must be exercised
in motion of all kinds to avoid damage and expense. Think
before you speak. Check reports carefully.
IF YOUR CHILD IS BORN TODAY... .he or she will
think that by fighting for everything wanted it can be had, so
teach early the importance of using tact and a kind word for
better results. Slant the education along trouble-shooting lines
so your child will know how to handle both people and
property. Give tasks to perform early in life. Sports are a
natural here.
"The Stars impel, they do not compel" What you make of
your life is largely up to YOU!

-Dark days as British soccer faces floodlight revolt I


LONDON The rumbling of revolt is
echoing around Britain's half-emnpty soccer
stadiums.
It takes a lot to upset Britain',
tradition-conscious soccer authorities. But
they just might have a riot on their hands in
the don't do something following a
government ban on floodlighting
Soccer, already on the financial rocks, has
been dealt a severe blow by the ban which has
forced clubs to kick off early to ensure
daylight finishes. This has produced even
bigger holes in the terraces.


Mlans clubs appealed to the ruling Football
I cague to postpone gaines until later in the
season, when the flooodlight ban imposed
because of the current world energy crisis
may be relaxed.
But the league, conscious of an already
crowded fixture list, doggedly refused any
postponements. Instead, it appealed to the
government for permission to play under
floodlights "in view of the damage the game is
suffering."
That w wasn't good enough for some clubs,
however.


Harry Haslam, manager of Second Division
Luton, surprised the diehards with a suggestion
that clubs should refuse to play daytime
matches in midweek while the fuel and
floodlight restrictions continued.
"The league will not pay my wage bill,'
Haslam said.

"How much money are clubs willing to lose
just to suit the midweek fixture lists?'
Haslam said Luton, like many other clubs,
was struggling to fill its ground on a Saturday
afternoon with a kick off time of 2 p.m. one


hour earlier than usual.
"What chance do we stand on a midweek
afternoon?" he asked.
"I don't think the league has anything in its
rules which states that we must play these
games."
The switching off of floodlights has hit
crowd totals all over the country.
Arsenal, one of the most famous of all
Britain's soccer teams, had a pathetic crowd of
13,482 fans in their 63,000 capacity Highbury
stadium for a game against Wolverhampton,
another popular club, Tuesday. (AP).

WE WON'T


LOSE AGAIN,

SAYS GUARD


MICHAEL

By GLADSTONE THURSTON
IT TOOK them two losses to wake up and
realise the type of competition in the Nassau
League. And last night ( central Avengers ended
their losing streak.
"Now everyone is together. I don't feel like
we are going to lose any more games," was the
wa. guard Michael Bowe saw it.
His comment was complemented by Ellison
late's game high of 15 points and 15 rebounds
leading the newly formed Central Avengers to
a 53-47 victory over defending junior champs
tContainer Saints last night at the ('. I. Gibson
( ;m.
Tate. formerly of Fort Fincastle Hawks
found that the big difference this season is
coaching "We know what we are doing now,"
he said. "Before, it was like whole court 21. If
you know what the team is doing, you know
where to throw the ball -
Coming off a 58-49 victory over Paradise
League champs Collegians, the Avengers took
control from the first quarter and led the game
throughout Bowe. who along with Perry
Tlhompson played an outstanding role, is
bringing the ball down and setting up the
plays lie scored 10. Thompson gave a game
high of seven assists.
Coach Cleve Rodgers was very pleased with
his team's effort although they fumbled the
opening of the fourth quarter. "They show a
senior league coach that they can follow
instructions and game plans. They are very
co-operative." he said. "We should have beaten
them the first time but it's just that we made a
lot of silly mistakes."
The Collegians gave the Avengers one of
their two losses, the other of which went to
the league leading Becks Cougars. The
Container's loss dropped them in fourth place
tine and a half games out of first.
Steadman Forbes led the Saints' scoring
going eight for 18 from the line. He gave five
assists. Anthony Brown scored 13 and took a
team high of only six rebounds.
Playing a pressing defence against the Saints'
running game. the Avengers in the first quarter
forced enough scoreless turnovers to take an
early 6-0 lead A Saints time out saw Roger
Brown returning to the court with two
consecutive baskets
lHowever, this was in no way a threat to the
Avengers' attack and with Bowe and Perrv
Williams handling the ball confidently they
took a 13-6 lead by the end of that period.
t'nsettled in their game. the Saints trailed
hy ten points three minutes into the second
quarter Tate and rookie forward Vincent
proved strong on the boards and their
rebounds were well taken care of by the
guards,, Roosevelt Archer joined Bowe going
into the third quarter break which saw the
Avengers holding a 33-20 lead.
Careless passing in the final period made the
Avengers victims of numerous turnovers and
thie Saints. taking advantage of these rallied
behind the shooting of Forbes and Anthony
Brown to break the Avengers command to five
points
Coach Rodgers took a time out to
reschedule his game plan. This proved
successful and the Avengers once more pulled
awa. to victory..
"Judging from what I see in our league, I
think that we are now in contention for the
league title," said Rodgers confidently.

Container Saints' Leroy Whylly scores one
of his two field goals over Avengers' forward
Ellison Tate.
Bahamas national team guard Peter Brown
in an unusual performance captured 19
rebounds along with his regular 24 points and
a game high of 14 assists last night in Becks
Cougars' 112-75 victory over Reef Basketball
Club.
After being held to just a three point half
time lead, the Cougars turned on the steam in
the second half and top performances by
Anthony Bosfield, Bennett Davis and Brown
saw them to their tenth victory against two
losses.
Davis in the second half scored 16 of his
game high of 26 points. Bosfield scored 18 and
Brown 12.
Freddie McKay, another Bahamas National
Team guard, topped Reef with a match high of
32 points going 14 for 22 from the field and
four for four from the free throw line. Big
Centre Rudy Levarity captured 16 rebounds.
Rookie Max Albury took 13.
Strong in their attack in the first half, Reef
rallied to an early 14-8 lead when Levarity
twisted an ankle.
This favoured the Cougars and with Davis
and Stancil Ferguson getting into the game
moved ahead 21-18.
Wendell Ferguson added to Reef's attack
but with not enough force to overtake the
defending champs who held the lead 45-42 by
the end of that period.

Barr

drops


decision
BAHAMAS middleweight
sensation Kid Barr, coming
off a second round technical
knockout victory over
Roscoe Bell last week, was
unable to hold his own
against Ring Magazine
'prospect of the month'
undefeated John Pinney last
night and dropped an eight
round decision in the
semi-final bout at the
Orlando Arena.
Pinney was no push-over as
Barr found out. But Barr's
performance was so great that
Orlando promoters are
considering a return bout
with Pinney in a main event
within the next three weeks.
"Barr had only two
problems to overcome," said
manager Marty Goldstein,
"and that is to deliver the left
hook with more efficiency
and a better knowledge of
cutting off the ring as Pinney
proved a most elusive target."
Barr was endeared by the
Orlando fans for his great
courage against their popular
idol who had experience in
his favour. Neither fighter
was knocked down and Barr
came out unscathed,
Goldstein said.
Goldstein pointed out that
last night Barr gained
experience in one night that
would have taken several
months of actual training. 4"In
going up against Pinney we
knew we were going up
against a young, seasoned and
conditioned boxer and it
proved that Barr has the
ability to go with the best,"
he said.
"All he needs, as his
Florida trainer Mac Goodman
said, is more actual ring work
eventually he will prove to be
one of the best to come out
of the Bahamas." Goldstein
said.
Goldstein was satisfied
with Barr's performance but
said he was unable to land his
right effectively. "I feel that
in the rematch it will be a
different story."
In the main event on last
night's card, Tony Licata,
eighth ranked in the world
middleweight division
stopped a courageous Nat
King in the eighth round of
their scheduled ten rounder.


Crushers meet



Jets in top



table clash


By IVAN JOHNSON
IN THIS weekend's Bahamas
American Football
Association's games the Nassau
Jets clash with the Crushers at
the QE Sports Centre on
Saturday evening and the
Marlins meet the Hurricanes in
Freeport Sunday afternoon.
With eight wins and no
losses under their belts, the
Jets will be coming up against
the second strongest team in
the league. The Crushers have
lost only one game in eight
matches.
This defeat was inflicted by
the Jets last October when the
Crushers were soundly
trounced to the tune of 52-8 in
Freeport.

Since then the Crushers have
improved and established
themselves as the best team in
Freeport by beating cross town
rivals, the Hurricanes twice.
Jets runningback Bruce
Russell should become the first
Bahamian football player to
pass the 1000 yds. mark in
rushing Saturday evening. At
present he has rushed for 925
yards in 84 attempts.
In pass receiving, receivers
Don Huyler and Earl Bostwick
need only 31 yds and 35 yards
to reach 600 and 500 yds
respectively. Both have passed
Huyler's passing receiving
record of 19 catches for 402
yds set last season.

Leading the Crushers offense
will be quarterback Phillip
Grant supported by half back
Sharkey Martin, while Sydney
Forbes will lead the defence.
The Marlins must win their
game against the Hurricanes
Sunday to stay in the race for
the fourth place in the table
and qualify for the playoffs.
Quarterback Andy Key and
running back Ricky Thompson
will be the Marlins key players
in this vital fixture.
