Fuel crisis puts
more out of work
WASHINGTON The
unemployment rate in the
United States jumped to 4.7
per cent of the work force in
November. signalling the
beginning of sharply higher
joblessness as the result of the
fud shortage, the Government
said today.
The Bureau of Labour
Nt.it istics said that the number
of people out of work
increased by 200.000 last
month, in a survey taken just a
few weeks after the Arab oil
embargo.
The jump from October's
4.5 per cent unemployment
could be traced as much to a
slowing of the general
economy as to job layoffs
caused by the embargo
EconomMl expect that the
first big impact of Ihe fuel
shortage on jobs will be toll in
either this month or January.
Ihe Nixon administration
has predicted that the
unemployment rate will rise to
almost six percent next
the embargo begins to chill
economic growth and forces
more people from their jobs.
While total employment
held steady at 85.7 million, the
number of people out of work
rose by 200.00 to 4.3 million.
This figure is expected to climb
to well over five million next
year.
It seemed clear that the
October jobless rate of 4.5 per
cent may be the lowest the
nation will see for some time
But analysts in the Bureau said
there was no way of detecting
whether the oil cut-off had
much impact on employment
in November.
The increase occured mainly
among adull blue collar and
service workers.
The jobless rate for adult
women climbed from 4.4 per
Benl to 4.7 per cent. (AP).
Gas won't be
rationed yet
WASHINGTON The chief
of federal energy programmes
has told senators that gasoline
will not be rationed before
March I.
William Simon,
administrator of the Federal
Energy Office. said the
government could work out
details of a rationing
programmes within 60 days
after a decision is made.
Whether rationing will be
required will be decided this
month, he said.
Testifying before the Senate
government operations
committee, Simon repeated
that the Nixon administration
considers rationing the last
resort solution to the fuel
shortage.
But, he added, the
administration will not hesitate
to order rationing if the need
requires.
The committee is hearing
testimony on the bill to create
the Federal Energy
Administration (FFA) to
oversee production,
conservation, a location and
rationing off fuels for two
vears.
Simon, whose federal energy
office was created by President
Nixon. would be
administration of the new
I I \
Under questioning by Sen.
Henry M Jackson, D-Wash..
yesterday Simon said the
administration wants to
evaluate how voluntary energy
conservation measures are
affecting the shortage before
making a decision on rationing.
"But we've delayed and
delayed, and we're losing one
million barrels of oil a day by
not rationing," Jackson said.
Simon said standby
machinery to implement
rationing will not he set up
before a decision to ration is
made. The reason, he said, is
that the administration will
have to decide what type of
rationing to use.
Under consideration are
several types of rationing.
Under the type used in World
War II. each familv would sei a
,non-translerrahlc allotment of
.gasoline and no more.
A second type would
combine rationing with sharply
higher gasoline taxes A
motorist would pay extra taxes
on gasoline he buys above the
base allotment.
Simon's testimony came
after the House Commerce
Committee voted Wednesday
to restrict excess profits on oil
companies resulting from the
fuel shortage and the
administration approved an
increase in the cost of home
heating oil (AP)
Ford
pledges
loyalty
WASHINGTON Almost
two months after the
resignation of Spiro Agnew,
Congress has confirmed Gerald
Ford as his successor.
Ford is the nation's 40th
vice president and the first to
be confirmed by Congress
under the 25th amendment. He
was sworn in yesterday
evening.
Ford pledged loyalty to
President Nixon when he took
office yesterday.
But other Republicans are
saying that with Ford in office,
chances are better that Nixon
will be impeached.
A month-long congressional
reoeu is scheduled to start in
two weeks, and it is expected
that Congressmen will use' the
time to sample public opinion
about impeachment. There was
a report today that another
Republican has made a
decision about the presidency.
The New York Times and
the Daily News say Governor
Nelson Rockefeller plans to
resign his office this month to
devote full time to a 1976
presidential campaign.
The Times says Rockefeller
also wants Lieutenant
Governor Malcolm Wilson -
who would succed him to
run as an incumbent in next
year's gubernatorial election.
Tapes: Haig speaks
of 'sinister force'
WASHINGTON
Alexander M. Haig Jr.. said he
and White House lawyers had
diicuaaed the possibility that
"some sinsiter force" had been
responsible for the gap in one
of the subpoenaed Watergate
tapes.
Haig testified the discussion
Occured on Nov. 20 after it was
determined that two distinct
tones obliterated an 18-minutc
segment of the tape of a
conversation on June 20. 1972

Rose Mary Woods,
Nixon's personal secretary, has
testified that she may have
caused a gap of about five
minutes' duration when she
accidentally pushed the wrong
button on a tape recorder
while trying to transcribe the
tape on Oct. I
The IX-minute segment is
obliterated by a hum which
becomes lower in tone and
volume after the first five
minutes
At a Federal Court hearing
called to determine what might
have happened, Haig testified
that "there have been
discussions of what I have
referred to as devil theories."
Haig said thai Ihe discover)
that there were two tones was
"a source of great distress."
He said While House lawyers
discussed the possibility "thai
perhaps there had been one
tone applied by Miss Woods in
accordance with her
description to the
president ...and then perhaps,
some sinister force had come in
and applied the other energy
source and taken care of the
information on that tape
At that point US District
Judge John J Sirica asked
Haig "Has anyone suggested
who the sinister force might
be?"
believed Miss Woods was the
cause of the 18-minute gap.
I've known some women
that think they talked for five
minutes and have talked for an
hour," he told reporters. "I've
always thought that it was Miss
Woods, but not in a sinister
way. Accidentally."
The tapes hearing began in
federal Court Oct. .'I when
the White House disclosed that
recordings of two Watergate
conversations had never been
made. That portion ran eight
days.
Then on Nov. 21, the
president's lawyers disclosed
the 18-minute gap in yet a
third tape and on Nov 2d the
hearings resumed with Miss
Woods the first witness
Haig and others testified the
gap was discovered Nov. 14

and Samuel Powers were

Relax oil embargo
Kissinger
urges the Arabs
WASHINGTON (AP) Secretary of Slate Henry Kissinger has
called on the Arab states to relax their oil embargo. With a Middle
East peace conference upcoming and the United States promising
to work for Israeli withdrawal from territory occupied during the
1967 war, "discriminatory measures against the United Stales and
pressures are no longer appropriate.'' Kissinger said.
"We are talking in that sense
to those Arab nations with
which we are in contact," he
said in a session with newsmen
Looking ahead to the
conference, which opens Dec
18 in Geneva, Kissinger said
the United States "will try h
give a m a x i in u in
encouragement to a moderate
course "
He praised the Soviet Union
for helping to arrange the talks,
but cautioned Moscow thai it
it "attempted to push
extremist solutions it would
make a settlement extremel)
difficult ."
The negotiations leading up
to the peace conference .is well
as the positions expected to be
taken by the parties was the
expected theme of a meeting
today between Kissinger and
Moshe Dayan. Israel's Defense
Minister
Dayan is in the United
States to discuss his nation's
stand with key American
officials as well as to meet with
leaders of the U.S. Jewish
community.
Kissinger predicted at his
news conference that the
Middle East ceasefire would
hold, the peace conference go
on as planned and that the
European allies could narrow
their differences with
Washington.
Kissinger's optimism about
the Middle East was not
dampened by the
escalation of fighting between
the Arabs and Israelis,

Upon These Rocks
BISHOP KNOWLES ON RECORD
By ET1ENNI UUPLICH
UNTIL late in the last century the forts in Nassau were
manned by British troops.
After the garrison was withdrawn the parade ground was
vacant. This parade ground was located on the site now occupied
by the Sheraton-British Colonial Hotel. Before the original
Colonial was built on this site Bay Street ran straight through to
what has since been known as West Bay Street
The barracks building on this ground was moved to the
headquarters of the Royal Bahamas Police I nice on East Street
and is still a part of the police compound.
The first Colonial Hotel a wooden building destroyed by f.re
in 1922 was built by II. M. Ilager who had opened up Florida by
running his I'.&O. railway through the area, connecting with a
line from llic north.
Up to that time the swamps of the Everglades were inhabited
by Indians, rattlesnakes and alligators. It was wild country.
One of the largest land owners in Florida was Mrs. Tuttle.
grandmother of Mrs. Wilfred "Pcinuiy" Smith and Mrs. Frank
Russell of Nassau and Harold Saunders, of Ocala.
At that time lots in the heart of what is now Miami City were
selling at $50 and Mrs. Tuttle gave extensive acreage to the city
for use as parks and recreation centres.
Her daughter, Frances, married Mr. Conrad Saunders of
Nassau. Mr. Saunders' many business enterprises here were
financed with money derived from the Tuttlc's Florida
investments.
When I started this article and mentioned that the forts of the
island were garrisoned I intended only to quote a verse from an
old curse on Nassau, written some time during the last century by
an Irish officer in the British garrison who developed a burning
hatred lor Nassau and all things Bahamian. His name was McCabe
and his poem is known as "McCabe's Curse On Nassau,"
He wrote his curse on a transport at the Bar entrance to
Njssau harbour when he was leaving the island.
And this is what he wrote:
Land of cursed jocks and stones.
Land where many leave their bones.
Land of rascals, rogues and peddlars.
Busy scandalising meddlers.
Land of poverty and w.mt.
Where pride is plenty, money's scant.
Take this my very heartiest curse.
And if I could I'd leave you worse.
For all your natives, I know well,
Love me as well as they love Hell.
And I to them am just as civil.
And wish them all sent to the Devil.
May whirlwinds,earthquakes, temptest, ram.
I ever, Igue, want, and pain.
Poverty and famine fell,
Drive them all to hottest hell.
And when they're dead, the worthless dogs,
May they be rooted up by hogs.
Oi lying in their lodgings narrow.
May land crabs feast upon their marrow.
With you at last 1 think I'm even.
You go lo hell, I go to heaven.
Shut up in there with bolted gate,
And there I leave you to your fate.
When he wrote this curse McCabe thought he would nevei see
Nassau again but some time later he was sen! hack to the island.
The transport that brought him back to Nassau anchored north
ol the Bar entrance to the harbour. The pinnace in which
McCabe was being taken into the harbour was swamped on the
Bai Ami McCabe was drowned.
His body was buried on Hog Island now called Paradise
Island where land crabs probably feasted on his marrow.
At that time thousands of a small species of crab ran icrosi
the surface of this island. I suppose these crabs have disappeared
in the area which has been developed as a tourist hotel resort. But
I imagine that many of these small crawlers still inhabit the
undeveloped parts of this island.

I thought of this story while reading Upon These Rocks, the
recently published history to the Catholic Church in the
Bahamas, written by the Rev. Colnun J. Barry. O.S.B.
li\ contrast with McCabe's curse on these rocks, the Church
has built a great human structure on its foundations.
This book is more than a history of the Catholic Church in the
Bahamas,
In his opening chapter! Fr. Barry j'lvcsa general outline of the
lustoi> of the islands and sonic facts about its geology and
climatic conditions thai aie not generally known.
For example. I didn't reali/e thai lor a forty-year period on
New Providence in the nineteenth centiuy the average rainfall was
56.41 inches a year, while the average for all the other islands
during this period was only .W.85 inches.
Nor did I realize th.it during a part of the year one lection of
the Bahamas is more exposed lo hurricanes,and at another period
of the \ ear the other section is more liable to attack.
These facts interested me as I read them after writing an article
recently on hurricanes.
For the benefit of readers of this column I will quote five
paragraphs from this highly Informative book which I recommend
jbl s|x.'cial reading.
Here aie the extracts:
"The Bahama Islands are divided nearly through the middle .mi
an east-west axis by the Tropic of Cancer. Because of this
location, the islands fall into a climatic /one that nukes them
tropical and semi-tropical. Washed by the warm Gulf Stream lo
the west and the Antilles Current to the east, modulated by trade
winds from the northeast, there is relatively little difference
between the climale of the northern and southern islands.
'The tropical climate brings wet and dry seasons. The rainy
season occurs between May and Novcnibct with a total annual
rainfall varying from 25 to 80 inches. At the capital of Nassau on
the island of New Piovidence the average rainfall for a fort)
period in the nineteenth century was 56.41 inches a year. When
the rainfall of the whole Bahamas group is averaged, there are two
rainy seasons, one in May and June and one from September
tluough November. The average rainfall for all the islands is 3.1.85
inches, but there exists an extreme variability in rainfall. This is
due lo the occurance or absence of hurricanes since (he Bahamas
He in the middle of the tracks of the West Indian hurricanes.
"The line marking the mean path of hurricanes passes across
the eastern edge of the islands during August and along the
western edge in September. In October the centre of activity
recedes eastward to a position just east of the August mean line.

More on sponges
I ill ri is some question as
to when sponge fishing was
first started in the Bahamas.
Mr. Herbert McKinney, born in
1885, is certain thai sponging
was well established In 1870
and knows that a Bahamian
WOtl a medal for his sponge
exhibit in London sometime in
1850.
In an interview wit li Mis
dale Saunders, archivist, for
the Ministry ol I ducation and
Culture, Mr. McKinney said
Hurricanes which did considerable dam red in 1866,
1873, 1888, 1908, 1926, 1929, 1932, and 1965. Ihc two worst
hurricanes in this 100 year period were in i 866 and 1929. The
hurricane season is confined almost entirely to August,
September and October, but occasional!) one will come as early
as May or as lute as January.
"Temperature variation in the islands is extremal) small. The
mean temperature range between the warmest and coldest
months is only 13 degrees. Throughout most of the Bahamas
chain the highest temperatures occiii during July. August and
September when the temperature seldom talls below HO degrees,
hul ii rarely climbs about 90 degrees The yearly relative
humidity of the islands average over 80 percent. The high
humidity would be oppressive to human habitation were n not
for the almost constant presence of cooling breezes.
"There is an abundance of bright sunshine throughout the
year. Overcast skies are common bul not persistent. Conditions of
fog, mist or ha/.c rarely occur in the Bahamas because ,ur and
waier temperatures are always about the same. The combination
of these factors give the Bahamas a climate that is the greatest
asset the islands possess. An environment of perpetual summer in
the 'Isles of June' gradually over the years attracted touri
brought in the major source of revenue to llic Bahamas in the
second half of the twentieth century ."
Fr. Barry is almost correct in listing hurricane years in the
Bahamas but he omitted 1928. Nassau had three major hurricanes
in 1926, one in 1928. and one in 1929.
He lists the 1908 hurricane. This is the first one I remember. I
can still picture the scene as though il happened yesterday.
I particularly remember the 1928 hurricane because ni> wife
had been in the island only a few weeks when it struck and I look
her out in il to experience the wildness of S tropical storm. It can
be an adventure for young people. The sea is really magnificenl in
its fury.
Fr. Barry is correct in describing the 1866 ami 1929 hurricanes
as the worst experienced in the Bahamas.
My paternal grandmother remembered the 1866 blow. She was
a young girl al the lime and told me aboul its fury. But perhaps
the only written record of ibis blow was contained in memoirs of
the Rev. Shadrach Kcrr. published in The 'tribune a few years
ago. Mr. Kcrr described how cemeteries were rooted up by wind
and sea and left unearthed bodies of partly decomposed people
floating all over the place. He was ai an Out Island I think il

event.

work of termites, were blown b to a room they occupied.

'U.S. FAILED TO PRODUCE EVIDENCE

SUFFICIENT TO PUT VESCO ON TRIAL'


Magistrate discharges






Vesco, rules wire-fraud


non extradictable


By Mike Lothian
THE UNITED STATES' BID FOR THE EXTRADITION of financier Robert L. Vesco on a $50,000 fraud
charge was thrown out of court this morning because the offence he was charged with is non-extraditable and in


any event the U.S. failed to produce sufficient evidence to substantiate the allegation.

Dupuch QC blasts US



system of justice

VISCO DFI' NCE LAWYER Eugene Dupuch, Q.C., this
morning blasted the whole system of justice in the United States
after the U.S. case against his financier-client was thrown out of
court by Magistrate Emianuel (Osadebay.


\And press ,coiii 'ents, b. all
American la\ Cet in lIhe ,ase
imovtd' the Magistrt0e hiirell
to stiound ia n iote warning
against "concocting evidence
in breach of the tood laitih on
which extrdlltiioni treaties aie
founded
As soon as \ir Osadebay
ruled that tinancier Robert 1 .
Vesco had no case to aInswer.
Mr Duiipuch got up to declared
"I would like to sya\ lthl.t in
mi more than a quarter ol a
century of practice before this
bai this is onlyIv le thild Ilm1c
that tie case it the
prosecution lhas been so(

"I call understand now wI\li\

charge like this could bring

will come to the conclusion

be there if they had had the

LANASSAU FREEPORT


succour and the solace of the
blind goddess of justice!"
At thie end of his ruling Mr.
Osadebay pointed tip a
weakness in extradition laws,
whereby applications for
extradition can be based solely
on affidavits, the contents of
which cannot be challenged on
cross-examination.
WARNING
And lie referred to a recent
Miami Herald article which
contained statements
attributed to U.S. Justice
Department official John
\Iurphy:
"Where certain state officials
are 'committed one hundred
percent' to getting a person
extradited," the Magistrate
said. those persons may breach
the good faith that is the
background to the Extradition
Act 1870 by extorting
evidence as depositions or
concocting evidence inl
depositions in order to satisfy
the requirements of the law,
knowing that there is no means
of putting those depositions to
test."
I I quoted a recent
statement by External Affairs
Minister Paul L. Adderley in
which it was said "the best
laws may be written with the
most sincere objectives, but,
implemented without integrity
and outside the spirit of
democracy they will surely
tail."
U n der these
circumstancess" Mr. Osadebay
said. "and in view of
statements which were
published in the newspaper
and attributed to certain
persons about what they
intend to do, which statements
have gone unchallenged and
not denied. I feel duty-bound
to sound this note of
warning."


The U.S. was alleging that
Vesco defrauded $50,000 from
the International Controls
Corporation of New Jersey,
and used the money as
down-payment on a block of
IOS shares he was buying from
former IOS director C. Henry
Buhl Ill.
They charged that the
purchase agreement was made
in Geneva, Switzerland
sometime in December, 1971,
and that Vesco on January 4,
1972 ordered $50,000
transferred by wire from an
ICC account at San Francisco's
Bank of America to Buhl's
Swiss bank account.
The prosecution case, led
here by Cecil V. Wallace
Whitfield and Patrick Toothe,
relied heavily on affidavits by
Buhl, by former ICC president
Laurence B. Richardson, and
former ICC assistant controller
Robert Ost.
Buhl testified to the
agreement and to receipt of the
money, but apn.irentil
contradicted himself in a
second affidavit.
FRAUD CHARGE
Richardson, whose evidence
was in support of the
contention that the offence
amounts to fraud by false
pretences under Bahamian law.
testified that when asked to
explain the $50,000 payment
Vesco gave four different
versions. the last of which was
accepted by the ICC board of
directors.
The Ost affidavit contained
evidence that on January 4 ICC
vice president Richard Clay
instructed him to have the
money sent to Buhl. The
prosecution argued that the
court could infer that Clay was
acting on instructions from
Vesco, then ICC chairman.
NOT SUFFICIENT
Mr. Osadebay held that "the
evidence of Laurence B.
Richardson as to what
transpired in the meetings of
the board of directors is not
sufficient evidence for me to
rely on to act in this matter."
Hie suggested that the
minutes of the meeting should
have been produced.
lie noted that Buhl "made
two contradictory statements."
As from where the order to
transfer the ICC money to
Buhl originated, the Magistrate
asked:
"What evidence was


produced to this court to show
that Richard Clay had not
power under the Articles of
Association to pass the
property in the company's
money under particular
circumstancess? The answer is
that no such evidence was
produced. I therefore cannot
presume any thing.
"The evidence does not
show that the accused directed
the transfer.
NOT EVIDENCE
"In my opinion, there has
been no evidence to prove
some essential elements in the
offences which the prosecution
contend the accused would be
guilty of under Bahamian law.
I do not think that the
prosecution can say they have
produced such evidence that, if
left to stand alone at the trial,
a reasonable jury properly
directed could not accept and
find a verdict of guilty."
After the ruling was
delivered chief defence counsel
Eug,'ne Dupl-hI, Q.C., said he
would have asked the court to
order the U S. to pay full costs
of the case, which he said were
"astronomical" in proportion
to the $50,000 involved, but
he could find no authority to
support such an application.
U.S. MAY APPEAL
Mr. toothe told the court
that as a result of the ruling the
prosecution "may or may not"
make some sort of application
today or tomorrow.
Suprisingly, there was a
number of vacant seats in the
court's public gallery this
morning. The case opened
before a jam-packed gallery.
but the spectators and the
foreign press thinned out ax
the hearings went on.
But it had been expected
that the court would be
crowded for the ruling this
morning.
About 50 people gathered
outside the court while the
ruling was delivered.
Both prosecution and
defence counsel were swamped
by television cameramen and
interviewers as they left court.
Press coverage of the case
ended as it had begun on thne
morning of November 13: with
a TV cameraman and
soundman recording a TV
reporter's story on the lawn ot
the Garden of Remembrance.
with the two-storey court
building in the background.


White House will give

up Dean tape to judge


NEW YORK (AP) The
White House agreed Thursday
to turn over the tape of a
conversation between President
Nixon and former White House
lawyer John W. Dean Ill
concerning a secret $200,000
campaign donation from
financier Robert L. Vesco,
government prosecutors said.
U.S. District Court Judge
Lee Gagliardi had requested
the tape to determine in pretrial
hearings if it was relevant in
the government's case against
former U.S. Attorney General
John Mitchell and
ex-Commerce Secretary
Maurice Stans.
The two former Cabinet
members are awaiting trial on
charges of conspiracy,
obstruction of justice and
perjury in connection with
Vesco's contribution to the
1972 Nixon re-election
campaign.
The indictment charges that
the money was donated in
return for Mitchell's and Stans'


intervention on behalf of
Vesco, who was being
investigated by the Securities
and Exchange Commission.
BROTHER & SISTER
DIE IN MIAMI
MR. VICTOR V. Toote, 77.
of Buffalo, New York, died in
Miami November 16 while
visiting his sister Mrs. Marie
Farrington, 99, who was
celebrating her birthday on
November 4.
Mrs. Farrington died at her
home on November 27, 11
Jays after her brother.
Both brother and sister were
born at Long Cay but moved
to the United States many
years ago.
Mr. Toote is survived by one
son, Julian Vesey Toote of
Buffalo and a sister, Mrs. Alice
Farrington of Nassau.
Mrs. Farrington is survived
by two daughters, the Misses
Ellie and Violet Farrington of
Miami, and Mrs. Farrington of
Nassau.


LAST APPEARANCE IN COURT -- Robert L. Vesco, left, in his last appearance in
court last Friday, today won his fight against extradition to the United States where he is
wanted on fraud charges. His chief counsel, the Hon. Eugene Dupuch, Q.C., smiles after
the three week long victory which won back his client's passport and $75,000 cash bond.

GBC chief named in


conflict of interest


allegations by SEC

ARTHUR McZIER, newly-named president and chairman of
the board of directors of General Bahamian Companies, has been
'mentioned in conflict of interest allegations made by the
Securities Exchange Commission in connection with its $2S 4


million civil fraud suit against
other defendants.
SEC sources claim that Mr.
McZier, former head of the
Small Business Administra-
tion's minority loan
programme, was a director of
Bahamas Commonwealth Bank
at the same time he held the
SBA job.
Mr. McZier, 38, resigned his
position as associate
administrator for minority\
enterprise in the SBA
December 1, the SEC alleges.
but court documents on file inii
New York identify him is
director of BCB.
SEC briefs filed in New
York federal court alleged that
Bahamas Commonwealth was
used by Mr. Vesco and hi,
associates to siphon off a
considerable amount of money\
from mutual funds managed b,
Investors Overseas Service,
Ltd. (IOS). the Geneva-based
financial operation.
The trial during which the
briefs were filed ran from
March to May 1973.
The SEC has alleged that Mr
Vesco, 37, and his associates.
caused the IOS mutual funds
to sell blue chip US. securities
and to invest the proceeds tor
their own benefit in foreign
concerns of dubious value.
Mr. McZier's name surfaced
last week during congressional
hearings into alleged illegal
loan-making and criminal
activity in the SBA.
RESIGNED
Russell Hamilton. former
director of the Philadelphia
regional SBA office and the
man who reportedly triggered
the congressional probe of the
S.B.A., said Mr. McZier
resigned his SBA job after
contents of a Hamilton memo
were "leaked" to SBA
Administrator Thomas Kleppe.
The memo is said to have
alleged Mr. McZier was
involved in a "conflict of
interest" situation.
Curtis Prins, chief
investigator for the House
Banking Committee, then
presented as edivence an
October 29 newspaper article
identifying Mr. McZier as a
new director of General
Bahamian Companies Ltd.,
which, it has been alleged, is
controlled by Mr. Vesco.
Mr. McZier's appointment to
the board of General Bahamian
Companies was published in
the Nassau press on October
29.
Confirmation of his
appointment as president and
chairman to replace Mr. David
A. Johnson was announced


financier Robert Vesco and 41

November 12. The company
statement said however that
Mr. McZier's appointment
would not become effective
until December 1.

Although no figure of the
amount of money believed
stolen was given, sources said
that the robber escaped with
only "a few dollars."
Sources said that Howell's
credit cards were found
scattered about the room, his
wallet was gone.
Mrs. Howell, in a state of
shock after making the
discovery, flew home to
Massillon Thursday afternoon.
Accompanying her were two
family friends attending the
conventioneers.
Howell's body, still at the
pathologist's lab this
afternoon, was to be flown to
Ohio sometime this evening.
POLICE DENIAL
Police authorities denied
reports that investigations had
come up with a change of
blood-stained clothing which
had been disposed of on one of
the beaches at Paradise Island.
Howell's body was removed
from the Holiday Inn Hotel to
the Princess Margaret Hospital
shortly after police opened
investigations into the murder.
It was stated that Howell
was cut on the left side of the
neck and also on the arm. He
was said to have also been
slashed on other parts of the
body.
A report that Howell had
been gambling at the casino
during his visit and won a large
sum of money was denied by
police. It was not true, police
said.
The Howells and their
friends were visiting the
Bahamas as part of a group of
400 attorneys, members of the
Ohio State Bar Association.
The group arrived here on


Sunday

HOUSE TO PROBE HOSPITAL


(' L ARFNCE TOWN
representative Mic haol
Lightboumn this week won a
partial victory in having a
House committee named to
inquire into the Princess
Margaret Hospital, but lost out
on the right to send tor persons
and papers.
The request for the
committee sparked relatively
little debate, principally
because of a confusion over
procedure. The amended
motion was passed before
members quite realized what
had happened.
And Health Minister Loftus


Roker, who normally has a
great deal to say to his critics,
was cheated out of a reply
when the committee was
approved while he was briefly
out of the room.
Mr. Lightbourn's motion
was amended on a
counter-motion by Mr. Earle
Thompson (PLP-Ft.
Charlotte). Mr. Thompson said
he was of the opinion that
there were people who had
shown genuine concern for the
operation of the hospital and
who had some knowledge
about the hospital.
It was his view however that


Mr. Lightbourn and his
seconder, Mr. Errington
Watkins (Ind.-Marsh
Harbour), should not have the
power to send for persons and
papers.

ON HOLIDAY


INN MURDER

By Sidney Dorsett
FULL SCALE police
investigations continued today
into the brutal murder of
Massillon, Ohio attorney Paul
V. Howell at the Holiday Inn
at Pradise Island late
Wednesday. But the police
reported no leads, although
extensive interviews were
conductedd with hotel staff
members and others
throughout yesterday and
today.
Police also denied that
blood-stained clothes had been
discovered on one of the
Paradise Island beaches and
that anyone was being held for
questioning.
The murder, which shocked
the entire nation, is believed to
be the first ever recorded in a
Nassau hotel.
Howell's bloodstained body
was discovered in his room by
his wife, Martha, and a few
friends who accompanied her
to suite 1523 of the Holiday
Inn to check on her husband.
Howell, 50, along with his
wife, were banqueting at the
time with other members of
the visiting Ohio State Bar
Association and had gone to
his room for some beers he had
there.
His wife and friends decided
to find out what was causing
his delay after he was gone for
some time.
POLICE THEORY
Police theorise that the
murder was an attack on
Howell, by a robber who was
caught by surprise when the
lawyr returned to his room
for the beers.

UNEXPECTED
cancelftions of various

order forcing striking TWA
employees to stop picketing
two other airlines.
Thousands of passengers
were delayed Thursday when
Pan American and American

picketing.
The picket lines were set
up at Pan American World
Airways and American

airports across the United

Union leaders said the
picketing was in protest of
funds being given to TWA by
other airlines under a mutual

WASHINGTON The
unemployment rate in the
United States jumped to 4.7
per cent of the work force in
November, signalling the
beginning of sharply higher
joblessness as the result of the
fuel shortage, the Government
said today.
The Bureau of Labour
Statistics said that the number
of people out of work
increased by 200,000 last
month, in a survey taken just a
few weeks after the Arab oil
embargo.

W AS Ifl NGTON
Alexander M. Ilaig Jr.. said he
and White House lawyers had
discussed the possibility that
"some sinsiter force" had been
responsible for the gap in one
of the subpoenaed Watergate
tapes
Haig testified the discussion
occurred on Nov. 20 after it was
determined that two distinct
tones obliterated an 18-minute
segment of the tape of a
conversation on June 20, 1972
between President Nixon and
H. R. Haldeman, Haig's
predecessor as White House


could be traced as much to a
slowing of the general
economy as to job layoffs
caused by the embargo.
Economists expect that the
first big impact of the fuel
shortage on jobs will be felt in
either this month or January.
The Nixon administration
has predicted that the
unemployment rate will rise to
almost six per cent next year as
the embargo begins to chill
economic growth and forces
more people from their jobs.

While total employment
held steady at 85.7 million, the

Gas wo n't be


ratione(

WASHINGTON The chief
of federal energy programmes
has told senators that gasoline
will not be rationed before
March 1.
William Simon,
administrator of the Federal
Energy Office, said the
government could work out
details of a rationing
programmes within 60 days
after a decision is made.
Whether rationing will be
required will be decided this
month, he said.

Testify, ring before the Senate
government operations
committee. Simon repeated
that the Nixon administration
considers rationing the last
resort solution to the fuel
shortage.

But, he added, the
administration will not hesitate
to order rationing if the need
requires.

The committee is hearing
testimony on the bill to create
the Federal Energy
Administration (FEA) to
oversee production,
conservation, a location and
rationing off fuels for two
ears.

Simon, whose federal energy
office was created by President
Nixon. would be

FEA.
Under questioning by Sen.


- yet


Henry M. Jackson, D-Wash.,
yesterday Simon said the
administration wants to
evaluate how voluntary energy
conservation measures are
affecting the shortage before
making a decision on rationing.
"But we've delayed and
delayed, and we're losing one
million barrels of oil a day by
not rationing," Jackson said.
Simon said standby
machinery to implement
rationing will not be set up
before a decision to ration is
made. The reason, he said. is
that the administration will
have to decide what type of
rationing to use.

Under consideration are
several types of rationing.
Under the type used in World
War II. each family would set a
1non-transferrable allotment of
ggasoline and no more.

A second type would
combine rationing with sharply
higher gasoline taxes. A
motorist would pay extra taxes
on gasoline he buys above the
base allotment.

Simon's testimony came
after the House Commerce
Committee voted Wednesday
to restrict excess profits on oil
companies resulting from the
fuel shortage and the
administration approved an
increase in the cost of home
heating oil. (AP)


staff chief.
Rose Mary Woods,
Nixon's personal secretary, has
testified that she may have
caused a gap of about five
minutes* duration when she
accidentally pushed the wrong
button on a tape recorder
while trying to transcribe the
tape on Oct. 1.
The 18-minute segment is
obliterated by a hum which
becomes lower in tone and
volume after the first five
minutes-
At a Federal Court hearing
called to determine what might
have happened, Haig testified
that "there have been
discussions of what I have
referred to as devil theories."
Haig said that the discovery
that there were two tones was
"a source of great distress."
Hle said White House lawyers
discussed the possibility "that
perhaps there had been one
tone applied by Miss Woods in
accordance with her
description to the
president.... and then perhaps,
some sinister force had come in
and applied the other energy
source and taken care of the
information on that tape.
At that point U.S. District
Judge John J. Sirica asked
Ilaig "-Has anyone suggested
who the sinister force might
be?"
"No. your honour," he
replied.
He said that he suggested at
that point in the discussion
that it should be determined
who had access to the tape and
that the lawyers and Haig
found that there was no one
outside of Miss Woods,
Presidential Aide Stephen Bull,
the Secret Service and the
President himself.
Haig, who completed his
testimony yesterday, said
earlier that his predecessor, H.
R. Haldeman, "does not
influence what we do in the
White House."
Haig strongly indicated he


rose by 200,00 to 4.3 million.
This figure is expected to climb
to well over five million next
year.
It seemed clear that the
October jobless rate of 4.5 per
cent may be the lowest the
nation will see for some time.
But analysts in the Bureau said
there was no way of detecting
whether the oil cut-off had
much impact on employment
in November.
The increase occurred mainly
among adult blue collar and
service workers.
The jobless rate for adult
women climbed from 4.4 per
cent to 4.7 per cent. (AP).


Ford

pledges


loyalty

WASHINGTON Almost
two months after the
resignation of Spiro Agnew,
Congress has confirmed Gerald
Ford as his successor.

Ford is the nation's 40th
vice president and the first to
be confirmed by Congress
under the 25th amendment. He
was sworn in yesterday
evening.

Ford pledged loyalty to
President Nixon when he took
office yesterday.
But other Republicans are
saying that with Ford in office,
chances are better that Nixon
will be impeached.
A month-long congressional
recess is scheduled to start in
two weeks, and it is expected
that Congressmen will use the
time to sample public opinion
about impeachment. There was
a report today that another
Republican has made a
decision about the presidency.

The New York Times and
the Daily News say Governor
Nelson Rockefeller plans to
resign his office this month to
devote full time to a 1976
presidential campaign.
The Times says Rockefeller
also wants Lieutenant
Governor Malcolm Wilson -
who would succeed him to
run as an incumbent in next
year's gubernatorial election.


believed Miss Woods was the
cause of the 18-minute gap.
"I've known some women
that think they talked for five
minutes and have talked for an
hour," he told reporters. "I've
always thought that it was Miss
Woods, but not in a sinister
way. Accidentally."
The tapes hearing began in
federall Court Oct. 31 when
the White blouse disclosed that
recordings of two Watergate
conversations had never been
made. That portion ran eight
days.
Then on Nov. 21. the
president's lawyers disclosed
the 18-minute gap in yet a
third tape and on Nov. 26 the
hearings resumed with Miss
Woods the first witness.
Haig and others testified the
gap was discovered Nov. 14
when lawyers Fred Buzhardt
and Samuel Powers were
preparing index and analysis of
seven subpoenaed tapes to be
turned over to Sirica. (AP).

CHAPIN

PLEADS

INNOCENT
WASHINGTON Former

secretary Dwight L. Chapin
pleaded innocent today to
charges he lied to the
Watergate grand jury about the
activities of political saboteur
Donald H. Segretti.
Judge Gerhard A. Gesell
released Chapin on personal
recognizance.
Chapin, 32, was indicted
Nov. 29 on four counts of
"making false declarations
before grand jury or court."
Each federal count carries a
maximum penalty of five years
and a fine of $10,000.
Chapin had appeared before
the grand jury last April 1 1 and
was asked what he knew of the
activities of Segretti,
underground agent for the
1972 Nixon re-election
campaign committee.
Indictment alleged Chapin
made the following false
statements:
That he told Segretti to
cooperate with the FBI.
That he had no knowledge
of and never discussed
distribution of campaign
literature by Segretti.
That he could not recall
ever giving Segretti "any
directions or instructions with
respect to any single or
particular candidate."
That his knowledge of
salary and expenses paid
Segretti came only from what
he had read in newspapers.

Upon These Rocks


By ETIENNE DUPUCH
UNTIL late in the last century the forts in Nassau were
manned by British troops.
After the garrison was withdrawn the parade ground was
vacant. This parade ground was located on the site now occupied
by the Sheraton-British Colonial Hotel. Before the original
Colonial was built on this site Bay Street ran straight through to
what has since been known as West Bay Street.
The barracks building on this ground was moved to the
headquarters of the Royal Bahamas Police Force on East Street
and is still a part of the police compound.
The first Colonial Hotel a wooden building destroyed by fire
in 1922 was built by H. M. Flager who had opened up Florida by
running his P.&O. railway through the area, connecting with a
line from the north.
Up to that time the swamps of the Everglades were inhabited
by Indians, rattlesnakes and alligators. It was wild country.
One of the largest land owners in Florida was Mrs. Tuttle,
grandmother of Mrs. Wilfred "Pemmy" Smith and Mrs. Frank
Russell of Nassau and Harold Saunders, of Ocala.
At that time lots in the heart of what is now Miami City were
selling at $50 and Mrs. Tuttle gave extensive acreage to the city
for use as parks and recreation centres.
Her daughter, Frances, married Mr. Conrad Saunders of
Nassau. Mr. Saunders' many business enterprises here were
financed with money derived from the Tuttle's Florida
investments.

When I started this article and mentioned that the forts of the
island were garrisoned I intended only to quote a verse from an
old curse on Nassau, written some time during the last century by
an Irish officer in the British garrison who developed a burning
hatred for Nassau and all things Bahamian. His name was McCabe
and his poem is known as "McCabe's Curse On Nassau."
He wrote his curse on a transport at the Bar entrance to
Nassau harbour when he was leaving the island.
And this is what he wrote:
Land of cursed rocks and stones,
Land where many leave their bones,
Land of rascals, rogues and peddlars.
Busy scandalising meddlers.


Land of poverty and want,
Where pride is plenty, money's scant,
Take this my very heartiest curse,
And if I could I'd leave you worse.

For all your natives, I know well,
Love me as well as they love Hell,
And I to them am just as civil,
And wish them all sent to the Devil.

May whirlwinds, earthquakes, temptest, rain,
Fever, ague, want, and pain,
Poverty and famine fell,
Drive them all to hottest hell.


And when they're dead, the worthless dogs,
May they be rooted up by hogs,
Or lying in their lodgings narrow,
May land crabs feast upon their marrow.

With you at last I think I'm even,
You go to hell, I go to heaven,
Shut up in there with bolted gate,
And there I leave you to your fate.


When he wrote this curse McCabe thought he would never see
Nassau again but some time later he was sent back to the island.
The transport that brought him back to Nassau anchored north
of the Bar entrance to the harbour. The pinnace in which
McCabe was being taken into the harbour was swamped on the
Bar. And McCabe was drowned.
His body was buried on Hog Island now called Paradise
Island where land crabs probably feasted on his marrow.
At that time thousands of a small species of crab ran across
the surface of this island. I suppose these crabs have disappeared
in the area which has been developed as a tourist hotel resort. But
I imagine that many of these small crawlers still inhabit the
undeveloped parts of this island.

I thought of this story while reading UpoIn These Rocks, the
recently published history to the Catholic Church in the
Bahamas, written by the Rev. Colman J. Barry, O.S.B.
By contrast with McCabe's curse on these rocks, the Church
has built a great human structure on its foundations.
This book is more than a history of the Catholic Church in the
Bahamas.
In his opening chapters Fr. Barry gives a general outline of the
history of the islands and some facts about its geology and
climatic conditions that are not generally known.
For example, I didn't realize that for a forty-year period on
New Providence in the nineteenth century the average rainfall was
56.41 inches a year, while the average for all the other islands
during this period was only 33.85 inches.
Nor did I realize that during a part of the year one section of
the Bahamas is more exposed to hurricanes, and at another period
of the year the other section is more liable to attack.
These facts interested me as I read them after writing an article
recently on hurricanes.
* ** ** * **
For the benefit of readers of this column I will quote five
paragraphs from this highly informative book which I recommend
for special reading.
Here are the extracts:
"The Bahama Islands are divided nearly through the middle on
an east-west axis by the Tropic of Cancer. Because of this
location, the islands fall into a climatic zone that makes them
tropical and semi-tropical. Washed by the warm Gulf Stream to
the west and the Antilles Current to the east, modulated by trade
winds from the northeast, there is relatively little difference
between the climate of the northern and southern islands.
"The tropical climate brings wet and dry seasons. The rainy
season occurs between May and November with a total annual
rainfall varying from 25 to 80 inches. At the capital of Nassau ion
the island of New Providence the average rainfall for a forty-year
period in the nineteenth century was 56.41 inches a dear. When
the rainfall of the whole Bahamas group is averaged, there are Iwo
rainy seasons, one in May and June and one from September
through November. The average rainfall for all the islands is 33.85
inches, but there exists an extreme variability in rainfall. This is
due to the occurance or absence of hurricanes since the Bahamas
he in the middle of the tracks of the West Indian hurricanes
"The line marking the mean path of hurricanes passes across
the eastern edge of the islands during August and along the
Western edge in September. In October the centre ol activity
recedes eastward to a position just east of the August mean line.


BISHOP KNOWLES ON RECORD


EDITOR,. The Tribune,
In your editorial of Saturday
last, December 1st, Sir I tinnc
quotes from Fr. Coleman's
book, "Upon these Rocks" the
following statement by Fr.
Cornelius, "When the honour
came it was an O.B.E. Later on
I found out that the Anglican
Bishop Knowles of Antigua ..
had received the O.B.E. so the
Governor said, 'We cannot
have the Catholic Priest lower
than the Anglican' And he
changed it from the M.B.I. to
the O.B.E. That is how I got
the O.B.F."
Later on in the editorial Sir
Etienne quotes Sir Robert
Neville as saying that Fr.
Cornelius was "entirely wrong.
What happened was ... Really
Fr. Cornelius was responsible
for Bishop Knowles getting his
O.B.E. and not the other way
round, as suggested in the book

Fr. Cornelius says he


received the O.B.E. in 1955.
Governor Neville says it was in
1952. Be that as it may, it
would seem that Fr. Cornelius'
statement is more factual than
that of Sir Robert in that the
O.B.E. was given to me on June


7th, 1951, at least one hut may
be four years before it
was given to Fr. Cornelius.
1 msrite this simply t r the
record.
DONALD R. KNOWLES


More on sponges


THEREt IS some question as
to when sponge fishing was
first started in the Bahamas.
Mr. Herbert McKinney, born in
1885, is certain that sponging
was well established by 1870
and knows that a Bahamian
won a medal for his sponge
exhibit in London sometime in
1850.
In an interview with Mrs.
Gale Saunders, archivist, for
the Ministry of Education and
Culture, Mr. McKinney said


Hurricanes which did considerable damage occurred in 1866,
1873, 1888, 1908, 1926, 1929, 1932. and 1965. The two worst
hurricanes in this 100 year period were in 1 ,Ir, and 1929. The
hurricane season is confined almost entirely to August,
September and October, but occasionally one will come as early
as May or as late as January.
"Temperature variation in the islands is extremely small. The
mean temperature range between the warmest and coldest
months is only 13 degrees. Throughout most of the Bahamas
chain the highest temperatures occur during July. August and
September when the temperature seldom falls below 80 degrees,
but it rarely climbs about 90 degrees. The yearly relative
humidity of the islands average over 80 percent. The high
humidity would be oppressive to human habitation were it not
for the almost constant presence of cooling breezes.
"There is an abundance of bright sunshine throughout the
year. Overcast skies are common but not persistent. Conditions of
fog, mist or haze rarely occur in the Bahamas because air and
water temperatures are always about the same. The combination
of these factors give the Bahamas a climate that is the greatest
asset the islands possess. An environment ol perpetual summer in
the 'Isles of June' gradually over the years attracted tourists and
brought in the major source of revenue to the Bahamas in the
second half of the twentieth century."

Fr. Barry is almost correct in listing hurricane years in the
Bahamas but he omitted 1928. Nassau had three major hurricanes
in 1926, one in 1928. -nd one in 1929.
He lists the 1908 hurricane. This is the tirst one I remember. I
can still picture the scene as though it happened yesterday.


I particularly remember the 1928 Imricane because my wife
had been in the island only a few weeks when it struck and I took
her )ut in it to experience the % iline, of a tropical storm. It can
be an adventure for young people. The sea is really magnificent in
its fury.
Fr. Barry is correct in describing the 1866 and 1929 hurricanes
as the worst experienced in the Bahamas.
My paternal grandmother remembered the 1866 blow. She w.is
a young girl at the time and told me about its fury. But perhaps
the only written record of this blow was contained in memoirs of
the Rev. Shadrach Kerr, published in 7The Tribune a few years
ago. Mr. Kerr described how cemeteries were rooted tip by wind
and sea and left unearthed bodies of partly decomposed people
floating all over the place. iHe was at an Out Island I think it
was in the Acklins-Crooked Island group for this frightening
event.
The 1929 hurricane was the worst in my experience. Ihe
damage was widespread. Flv.. government House was desti ocd
in this blow and the Actin" ;overiior and L.,dJ Dundas w5e5 '
almost killed when whole casement windows, weakened b\ the
work of termites, were blown i; to a room they occupied.
My family's two storey house on the site now occupied by I
Tribune was picked up b,.'d-I, landed in the schoolyard nex'
door, and broken in half.
It must have been a smooth operation because a pitcher full ot
water sat on a tray on a small table in a corner of the dinuin
room. It was surrounded by tumblers. Not a drop of water was I
spilled. Nothing was broken. But the house was split down the
middle. This is the kind of thing that happens in a hurricane.
Our family left the violently shaking building just before this
happened. My wife was then carrying our eldest daughter. I ileen
Carron, who arrived several months later.

It does not necessarily follow that because New Providence has
a much higher rainfall than the average for all the other islands
combined that it is the wettest island in the Bahamas.
The average for the group is pulled down by salt producing
islands such as Inagua. Rum ('ay and parts of Long Island where
the rainfall is minimal.
The Lord must have a hard time answering the prayers of
people with conflicting interests.
I toured Long Island with Lord (Grey when he was Governor of
the Bahamas, and Donald d'Albenas and Peter Grahami who
represented the island in the House of Assembly at that time
We stopped at a church near the salt development at the island.
It was near harvest time and a rain would have ruined the salt
crop.
The audience in the church included farmers and
representatives of the salt company.
A heavy rain cloud built up in the west and could be clearly
seen from the church.
I watched the reaction of the congregation to this cloud. The
salt people were watching it and praying it wouldn't rain. The
farmers were watching it and praying for a deluge to relieve the
drought that had scorched the land.

Boy. the Lord was on a spot that day. How do you think He
handled this situation?
I waited as the clouds floated nearer and nearer to the salt area
... and then hung low over it for a while.
They poised in indecision while the salt people held their
breath. Then they moved forward to the farming area where they
opened their floodgates and poured out cooling water into
parched farming lands

Solomon's Mines puts on a pretty new face



for Christmas


By Daphne Wallace Whitfield
FOR A NEW OUT-OF-THIS (MUNDANE) WORLD


experience this Christmas season
It hits you as you enter the
doors. Glittering crystal, fine
bone china, sparkling jewellery,
fabulous porcelain figurines
stretch seemingly for miles on
either side of the store, one's
view unencumbered so that if
your eyesight is good you can
see the Bing and Grondahl fine
Danish porcelain far to the rear
of the store.
For Solomon's Mines has
undergone radical re-modelling.
The new look is open space.
No more do nooks and
crannies obscure your view.
The shopper or the viewer can
wander unimpeded, and in
comfort, among the
merchandise which, beautiful
in its own right, has now been
enhanced by its new beautiful
display.
Solomon's Mines was
opened in 1954.
Both stores, that is Bay
Street and Paradise Hotel
locations, were sold in 1971.
The present owners are SCOA
whose headquarters are in
Paris, France. They have
interests in 30 different
countries, mainly Europe,
Africa nad Madagascar. Their
operations cover general
trading, retail stores, vehicle
distribution, general
equipment, beauty
preparations and
pharmaceutical products.


pay a visit to Solomon's Mines.
Yet, Solomon's Mines
retains its old and appropriate
name.
NEW MANAGER
Mrs. Jean Pollock, who used
to be the dynamic Director of
Skinner's Secretarial School,
and who incidentally has
stored up thirty years of wide
business experience, has
recently become the manager
of the store.
She modestly disclaims
much of the credit for
Solomon's Mines new look and
pays unstinting tribute to her
four senior staff members who
have accumulated some
sixty-six years of service
between them with the
company.
Mrs. Anglea Gape is the
officer supervisor, and Mrs.
Maisie Fod the sales supervisor,
Mrs. Sonia Durant, the'
perfume supervisor, and Mrs.
Andrey Darville the warehouse
supervisor.
What accounts for the long
service record of this seasoned
senior staff and the other
twenty plus?
Mrs. Pollock says that there
is "something very satisfying
being associated with goods of
distinction."

SOLOMON'S MINES
From 4
plate.
Besides these main
"departments" there is a
variety of other merchandise at
Solomon's Mines: Danish teak
items, leather wine bottle
holders for the ultimate in
portable wine cellars ($56.00)
and a variety of other leather
goods such as wallets and
purses, jewellery boxes,
brushes, key rings and
telephone pads. There are
nick-nacks from Switzerland:
musical boxes, atomizers and
lipstick holders.
At the beginning I said there
were no more nooks and
crannies. Rather I should have
said there are no more nooks
and crannies interfering with
the vista of quality
merchandise.
There is one little nook left.
This is for inexpensive
souvenirs.

this difference is what inspired
"Sun 'N Ideas", the name of
the holiday tour plan
originating from Canada. It's
exclusive to the Bahamas and
started in November and
continues until April 12.
Dr. Dlonald Chant, Chairman
of the l)Department of Zoology
at the University of Toronto
was the first speaker on the
holiday roster. His chatty
'lectures' on world population,
the Antarctic and the energy
crisis seemed like discourses on
life on another planet when
pictured .against the peaceful
scenery that encircles guests at
the beach on Paradise Island.
Dr. Chant, considered an
expert on the subject of
ecology, sat on a beach chair
surrounded by suntanned
"pupils" and appeared a
irlined version of Ernest
flemingway with white hair
and lively blue eyes.
If the subject of ecology and
its many lide effects could be
considered "heavy or too
serious" for a holiday audience
it was not discernible on the
faces of the adults listening to
Dr. Chant.

Fisher, because they are "tops

An array of famous and

Since it opened for business

under $8 million after its first
full year of operation on
December 31, 1964, to well in
excess of $400 million as of

GOOD ACTING
The acting was uniformly
good so that any selection of
the actors is purely a matter of
personal taste. Tim Crowther,
who played a dual role as Hugo
the young man about town and
the soft and sentimental twin
brother Frederic, did a great
job of dual characterization.

satirical Anouilh and Frederic
is the poet, nostalgic and
despairing. Hugo, of course,
has the most quotable
dialogue. His hedonistic
approach to life, even at the
expense of the feelings of
others, does not phase him.
"It's all we've time for before
we're laughing on the other
side of our graves," he says.
CHARACTERISTICS
The other characters in the
play can be divided into Hugo
,or Frederics. The Frederics are
usually the butts of the satire
of the Hugos.
Joshua, the crumbling
butler, played by John
Fitzpatrick, is of course a
Frederic. When questioned
about his amorous experiences
by Hugo he pitifully denies
ever having had any. Before he
went into service he was too
young, he says those in
service of course cannot have a
life of their own.
Diana Messerschmann,
played by Irene Pollington,
daughter of the Melancholy
Millionaire, engaged to the
love-lorn Frederic, but in love
with Hugo, is a sophisticated
Hugo.
Liz Gottlieb plays a
superably, lascivisously
sophisticated Lady India,
Messerchmann's mistress, a
delightful female counterpart
to Hugo, who vigorously
pursues Patrice Bombelles
Messerschman's secretary
played by Brian Brown and of
course a Frederic to Lady
India's Hugo.
Madame n esmrtes aunt to


ric and Lady India,

she sends on
errands the butt of
ve sarcastic wit, her
npainion, Capulat,


played by Jeanette Dunn, who
totally absorbed herself in her
exaggerated Frederic role and
provided us with some of the
best comedy of the evening.
TYPICAL
Victor Tuck plays
Messerschmann, the
Melancholy Millionaire, who
doesn't fit neatly into either
category. He fits the typical
Anouilh character, intensely
despairing, whose key
characteristic is the refusal of
life and happiness. He eats only
noodles without salt or butter
and drinks only water. He
manipulates people because of
his money and could therefore
be put in the Hugo category
Jut is more philosophically
attuned to the melancholy
senitmental Frederic.
Gordon Learn who plays
Romainville, a Lepidopterist,
uses Isabelle the ballet dancer
and her vulgar, fraudulent,
ambitious yet pitiful mother.
However, Romainville is
out-Hugoed by Hugo.
Maeve Stephens who plays
Isabelle's mother plays a
superb comedy role. She is
Hugo to Isabelle's Frederic but
in the hands of Hugo becomes
a Frederic. Maeve Stephens has
some super dialogue which she
delivers superbly to the delight
of the audience.
That Isabelle, played prettily
by Kate Harrell, could have
been the belle of the ball, is a
reflection on the jaded
appetities of the upper class
society satirised by Anouilh.
She is attracted by Hugo, her
philosophical opposite. The
selfish characters are always
the most attractive and yet are
they? Many of the moony ones
are self indulgent and depend
on the Hugos to put them on

UPS AND DOWNS OF RUBBER BRIDGE


I'VE ALWAYS had a soft
spot for rubber bridge.
Duplicate pairs can be
stimulating, and teams of four
can be satisfying, but there is
something about good
old-fashioned rubber bridge
which continues to exercise a
fascination for me. And
millions of others throughout
the world too. Part of the
fascination comes, I think,
from the continual ups and
downs of the game.
The two hands featured
today both come from rubbers
in which I took part, and I
place myself in the South seat
so that it is easier for you to
see the problems through my
eyes. The first hand is an
example of how a moment's
thoughtlessness can throw
away a good contract, and the
second is a happier example of
how an end-play, conceived in
desperation. y yielded
unexpected results.

I forget what the
vulnerability was, bhot I do
remember making the mistake
of assessing the South hand as


a 2 Club opening. It isn't. The
texture of the red suits make it
unsuitable to torce partner to
Game with what might be a
quite weak hand. However, I
confess to being prone to
moments of over-optimism,
and this is what happened in
the bidding:

S W N 1
2 C pass 2 S pass
3 H pass 3 S pass
4 D pass 4NT pass
5 S pass 6 S dble
6NT pass pass pass
You can't really blame
North. If I had a genuine 2
Club opening with just a
singleton Spade, he was surely
right in trying 6 Spades. When
East doubled, I pressed the
panic button, and was relieved
to find that nobody doubled 6
No Trumps.
West was the next to be
found guilty. If he had led a
Spade, as his partner's double
indicated, I should have had
little hope of making 12 tricks.
But once Last failed to double
6NT, he said to himself that if
a Spade trick were coming to
the defence, it wouldn't run
away, and meanwhile he would
try to set up a Diamond trick
for himself. He led the 2 of
Diamonds.
Gratefully I won with the
Queen, then took stock. Surely
East's double of 6 Spades
meant at least 4 to the Jack
which if it were no worse
meant that I could go for the
Spades for my tricks. A small
voice deep within me said
something about a really bad
Spade break, but I wasn't
listening all that clearly. What 1
did do before going over to
dummy's Spades was to play
my Ace of Hearts, whereupon
West smartly dropped the
Queen.
That settled it. I played to
the King of Clubs, and
followed with three rounds of
Spades, West showing out, and
my hopes showing out at the
same time. I came back to
hand with a Heart, and my
hopes rose again as West
dropped the Jack. If he held
Q,J,10, maybe I was there after
all. But East took the next
trick with the 10, then made
his two long Spades.
I trust you can see what I
should have done. After West
shows out on the third round
of Spades, it doesn't matter
whether he had Q,J,10 of
Hearts, or just QJ. All I need
to do is to play a small Heart


from dummy and duck it into
the West hand. I'm then home
with 3 Spades, 4 Hearts, 2
Diamonds and 3 Clubs.
Now for the next hand,
which I dealt at Game All:

My partner and I were
playing the Schenken system,
and my opening strong bid of I
Club was overcalled with 3
Clubs by West, doubled by


North, ignored by me, and
eventually we finished in 6
Spades, doubled by nobody.
West led the King of Clubs. I
played dummy's Ace, because I
figured that for West to
overcall in Clubs he had to
have 6 of them, and the second
round would be ruffed. I then
counted my tricks, and was a
bit miffed to find only 10 in
sight. The play went like this:
Ace of Clubs on the first trick,
then my three top Spades,
drawing trumps. Next, with
some vague thought of a
throw-in, I played off my
Diamonds, discarding a Heart
from dummy. Now when I led
my other Club, I didn't know
it at the time, but the position
was:

J 9 5

K 98

Q 108

J 103

This was a most unusual
throw-in, for it yielded not
only one trick, but two. If
West returns a Heart, I get a
free finesse, and can then ruff
my third Heart in dummy. If
West leads back a Club,
dummy gets a free finesse,
making both Clubs, and
enabling me to discard both
my losing Hearts. And if West
fails to rise with the Queen,
dummy's Jack makes, and I
should lose only a Heart,
dummy's trump taking care of
the other.

I have the feeling that this is
a mniost rare position, but at the
time my only thought was that
somebody had made a mistake
in defence. This is by no means
so, but just another fascinating
aspect of this ever-fascinating
game.


More on sponges


From Page 3
Lightbourn bought sponge and
packed them. he having cash
over there. John S. George,
who were then in the liquor
business had liquor sent out
from Holland. Especially case
gin, green case gin, called 'Key
Brand' anything that was
good was called 'key brand.' I
was tied up with it long ago,"
Mr. McKinney recalled.
(Mr. Henry Lightbourn's
daughter, Mrs. Aline (Victor)
Saunders died in Nassau on
October 19 at the age of 89.
His granddaughter is Mrs Eileen
(Bryan) Moody.)
The people involved in the
sponge industry were the
"outfitters, who owned and
outfitted the sponging vessels.
The buyers were different,"
said Mr. McKinney.
BUYERS
"The outfitter was not
necessarily a buyer. The big
buyers at that time were
George B. Adderley, Henry
Lightbourn, and I think
Christofilis, the family is still
here. The Christofilises were
some of the first Greeks to
come to the Bahamas. They
were buyers. A lot of people
came in later especially after
the first World War. But before
that the type of vessels
changed.
"First they were all
schooners. Then they found
out that the native sloops were
easier to handle and cheaper to
run and they took over from
there. But in 1900. there were
5,000 men on the mud
sponging and besides that,
there was the ship- building,
the sail-making, the repairing,
the packing of the sponge and
sorting and all that and the
population of the whole of the
Bahamas was 52,000, so you
see what a large proportion
were employed in this sponge
business."
Mr. McKinney said the wool
was the highest priced sponge


with the velvet next. "There
was more velvet, and the velvet
grew faster as it was plentiful.
Then next to that was the grass
sponge, which was bigger, and
until they had scientists, they
thought that the grass was the
quickest growing, but the
velvet was. "Then there was
the reef sponge that grew on
the hard rock. Curious
enough," Mr. McKinney
recalled, "the commercial
sponge is just the skeleton of
the sponge; the live sponge
itself is as black as tar, and
they have a few holes that they
draw the water through and
keep the circulation going."
After the Greeks bought the
sponge they were clipped and
packed. 'The sponge were
brought to the Sponge
Exchange, sorted and bought."
They were then taken to the
yards and women with shears
trimmed and shaped them. The
sponges sometimes grew on
rock and the sand and grit had
to be trimmed off them. Many
of the women were involved in
the industry "50 or 60 at a
time when the sponge came
in."
DISEASE
Then a mysterious disease
hit the beds in 1937.
Mr. McKinney, who believes
that he was the first person to
plant sponge commercially,
tells how this disease spread
and wiped out the beds of the
Bahamas.
"I made a crop," he said
"and did well with it and then
I started going into it more
heavily and then several other
people started coming in. In
the early part of 1937 we
heard something of this
disease.
"It started at the north end,
near Nichols Town and we
heard it from there coming
down. To show how rapid it
was, at Mastic Key, which I
own, they had the three marine
biologists sent out by the
British Government to learn
something about the growth of


sponge. Very little had been
known or done about it.
'These men were down
there and my son went down
on a Thursday and said mine
were all right, and before the
following Thursday he got a
message from the scientists
down there 'nearly all your
sponge are gone' as quickly
as that. And we had well over
100.000 planted. The normal
healthy sponges are as black as
tar, then they get grey, then
they're finished and in no time
they smell to high heaven," Mr.
McKinney said.
"The first sponge planting
was developed on the Florida
Banks by Dr. Charles Dolly,
and from that Mr. H. C.
Christie, Sir Harold's father,
who was Secretary of the
Marine and Agricultural Board,
went up to the Exumas and
planted a lot of cuttings. It
seemed to be coming on very
well, until one of these very
low tides and then a very heavy
downpour of rain, and the
difference in the salinity of

the obvious path to happiness.
The aunt brings Isabelle and
Frederic and Hugo and Diana
together the obviously
correct philosophical matches,
and Hugo's antics of the
evening are partly motivated to
save his brother Frederic from
a disastrous match with Diana
- a subliminal awareness that
Diana is his kind must
obviously have been an
unconscious motive.
Anouilh, like Shakespeare,
demonstrates the thin dividing
line between comedy and
tragedy and the former is often
more tragic.

SPONGES
From Page 8
water killed all the sponge,"
Mr. McKinney recalled.
He said he understood many
Bahamians left the Bahamas,
especially from Eleuthera for
Key West, and started a sponge
business in Key West.
"Afterwards some of the
people moved to Tarpon
Springs and then when they
got to Tarpon Springs they got
a hold of these Greeks who
used diving helmets and stuff
to dive sponge, and they tried
to bring it there. But it was
stopped."
Mr. McKinney said the
practice was stopped by the
legislature. "It was made illegal
to use anything but the sponge
hook," he said. "That was
practically our sole industry
and we couldn't afford to get it
ruined in a year or two."
The Greeks, he said had
headquarters in London and
got buyers in Greece, Tarpon
Springs and the Bahamas.
"They sent them where they
thought it was most
profitable," Mr. McKinney
remarked.

Qualities

of a

vice-

president
WASHINGTON Nine
years ago this month, a group
of younger Republicans in the
house. plotting the unseating
of their party leader, selected
Gerald R. Ford of Michigan as
their standard-bearer.
In far more serious straits
last October, after Spiro T.
Agnew resigned under fire,
President Nixon chose Ford,
60, to be the first vice
president put in office by
presidential nomination and
congressional confirmation.
Both the Young Turks of
1964 and the beleaguered
president of 1973 presumably
were impressed by the same
politically useful qualities in
Ford: personal likeability, a
clean reputation, a solid base
of support among colleagues,
Republican orthodoxy and an
unflappable disposition.
After his nomination to be
vice president in October, Ford
held one of his characteristic
first-name-basis news
conferences in the house press
gallery, saying he expected to
be thoroughly investigated and
promising co-operation.
He did cooperate, before
Senate and house committees
with bundles of financial,
medical and other
documentation. He was
good-humored throughout.
The house judiciary
committee said it had
"investigated and questioned
the nominee's public and
private life to a degree far
beyond that of any person
holding public office in
America today.
Some Democratic members
of the committee said the
outcome of the investigation
into Ford's conduct had been
one of the best things to
happen in years for politicians.
Ford clearly is a politician.
After the university of
Michigan, Yale Law School and
the Navy, he went home to
Grand Rapids but barely gave
himself time to set up a law
practice.

He ran for Congress at the
urging of his stepfather, a
Republican country chairman.
and with the backing of the
late Republican Sen. Arthur
Vandenberg. (AP)

DEAR ABBY: My husband and I became friendly with
a couple who recently moved into our building. They are
charming, intellectual people, but their apartment is always
filthy and has a terrible lingering odor.
They are constantly asking us over for a drink or
dinner yechh!] and whenever possible we reverse the invi-
tation because we'd rather not eat there and we can't stand
the odor.
We're not fanatics about cleanliness, but their kitchen
floor is so gummy our shoes actually stick to it. Well, you
get the idea.
Is there a subtle or tactful way to suggest they clean
up their place and get rid of the odor? We hate to hurt
their feelings or lose their friendship. NEW NEIGHBORS
DEAR NEW: I know of no subtle or tactful way to tell
people to clean up their place and get rid of the odor. If
you enjoy the company of these charming intellectuals,
continue to reverse their invitations.
DEAR ABBY: I am furious. I had some used porch
furniture, a pool table, and an antique bookcase, all in
excellent condition stored in my basement. My daughter in
law and son saw all this stuff and said they could use it, so
I PAID to have it all hauled to their home.
The other day when I was there I didn't see any of the
things I had sent them. My daughter in law noticed the
puzzled expression on my face and said: "Oh, after all that
stuff got here, I realized it didn't fit in this place, so I sold
it all to a second hand dealer."

How do you tell couple


their apartment smells?

Abby, how would you have fel? And whet SM y
have said had this happened to you?
HURT, DISUPPOITD, AND AM T
DEAR H., D. AND A.: I would have f el ye
and would have probably expressed thOse u I9Man.

DEAR ABBY: I work in my husband's Ofife, a a
corporate secretary. I am expected to sign legal pqps I
know nothing about, type up and sign minutes of memia.
that never took place, and just be there when ram ede
and then disappear.
I am never included in financial meetings, but I =4
cosign all notes and legal papers. When buinnesmaam em
to the office, I am not even introduced, and weM im
husband takes them to lunch, I am notincluded.
I know I am needed because I keep the records, doe ag
payroll, write and sign all the checks, and do many jals
that would be costly to hire someone to do. I work for a
pay!
We've had to give up most of our social life beaMs w
both work all the time. I don't know how long I *can aog
tinue living in this pattern. We have a fantastic busia ,
but what good is the money if all we do is work! You ena
said: "No one can use you for a doormat unless you eI
down."
Well, it's not all that easy to get up without de
more than you care to give up. NO
DEAR NO: Collar your husband and state year O a-
plaints. Don't expect to improve your lot by complatbng to
ME!

By GLADSTONE THURSTON


LIGHIT heavy wcigh I
contender Bobby Lloyd, in the
best shape of his career toi his
bout against former world
champion Vincente Rondon
tonight at the Birdland Arena,
sees the fight going in no wayv
but his favour.
"It's not going to be like a
lot of people think," said the
2 2-year-old boxer. "I've
trained harder for his fight
than I have ever trained before
so Rondon isn't going to cone
in there and take over. I've
been waiting a long time lor a
shot like this."
Coming off a victory over
Bahamas heavyweight champ
Boston Blackie. I loyd returned
to Miami Beach's Fifth Street
Gym where he continued
vigorous training and sp rinrui
sessions with sonicm of the top
boxers there. These include
Nat King, Levi Forte, Oliver
Wright and the dynamic I lisha
Obed.
Lloyd is gunning for a world
wide title fight bh the middle
of next year and a victor\r
tonight will make things much
easier for him. HIowever, he
would like to cut down Mike
Quarry before handling B h
Foster's title.
Actually, he is try ingi to
reach there before I ngland's
John Conteh. Not that he fears
Conteh's talent but his
handlers don't think that he is
ready. "After tonight, they will
-have a different idea because I
have yet to put out all I got "
Lloyd saw Rondon in action
against Foster and from that
fight he picked up a lot o)t
information. "I I. ve a style
like Foster anyw;, so I don't
think that it will be any
problem."

Fullone back to-



pep Paradise

By IVAN JOHNSON


SOCC(TR FANS should see
another entertaining match on
Sunday when Paradise meet
McAlpine in the BFA's feature
game at Clifford Park.
McAlpine, under national
team coach. Dick Wilson
proved against Red Lion last
week that they are a good side
despite losing a hard fought
match. 1-0.
Paradise have already
displayed their talents through
a 1-0 win against St. Georges
and a 5-3 loss against the
mighty Lions two weeks ago.
Paradise were without their
key midfield player Oscar
Fullone in the game against the
Lions. Both Fullone and full
back Bob McVeigh were under
a one game suspension after
being sent off during Paradise's
clash with St( Georges.
Fullone's return on Sunday
should make a big difference to
Paradise's attack as the highly
skilled Rossi will now be able
to resume his role as a striker.
Rossi has shown that he is
capable of heating any defence
in Paradise's two games and he
omd Juliano lacoppi could
cause the McAlpine defence
considerable problems with
Fullone and Bocus to support
them in midfield.
McAlpine. although not as
talented individually as
Paradise, arc an extremely well
disciplined and efficient team.
The Clan inidfield trio of
Jenner, llaywood and Baptiste
stood up well against the
powerful Lions inidfield, while
(ro/ier and Williams form the
nucleus of a sound defence.
recently strengthened by
newcomer Steve Dale in goal.
Judging from his debut
against the lions last week and
by Tuesday's game for the
Nassau XI against Swedish
Second Division champions,
Brynas, Dale looks to have a
very steady and safe pair of
hands.
tip fronl Simipson, Lawler
and Moore form a steady
attack biut in comparison
Paradise's at tack of Rossi,
lacoppi and Black is the more
dangerous
