Bahamas
By NICKI KELLY
THE CHASE MANHATTAN BANK is to make
available $10 million for the financing of a low-income
housing programme in the Bahamas, it was jointly
announced today by Chase Manhattan general manager
Henry G. Laney and Mr. George W. Mackey, M.P.,
chairman of the Housing Commission.
i The funds, which will infuse new life into the construction,
industry, represent the largest single contribution to housing;
finance ever made in the country.
It will make possible the construction of approximately 500
low-cost units to be built in approved subdivisions under the
government's regular home construction programme.
Only families in the low-income brackets will be able to
participate in the programme, Mr. Mackey said. Each of the 500
housing units will represent a house-and-lot value of $20,000 or
less.
"What we are trying to do," Mr. Mackey said, "is to direct
attention to an area which has long been neglected and to take
positive action where it is most needed."
The $10 million in Chase mortgages will be on a maximum
term of 15 years. It is understood applications are already being
processed. The maximum interest rate will be 10 percent as
allowed under the Housing Act.
Applications for loans under this programme will be screened
by personnel at the Housing Department. It is expected priority
will be given to applicants for houses in Big Pond, Haig's Square,
Yellow Elder and other approved low-income subdivisions.
The present $10 million loan is in no way connected with the
100 Yellow Elder houses now under litigation.
Mr. Laney described authorisation of the loan as "a reflection


of the confidence of the bank
Bahamian community.
"It is the hope of Chase
Manhattan that our approval of
this facility will further
stimulate investor confidence
in the Bahamas to the benefit
of the entire economy," Mr.
Laney said.
Mr Alfred T. Mayto,-4
M.P., chairman of the Bahamas
Development Coporation,

Up goes

the cost

of news
IT'S GOING TO COST a
little more for people to keep
up with the news in Nassau.
Last week Bahamian News
Limited raised the price of The
Miami Herald on their
newsstands from 30 cents to
50 cents for the daily
newspaper and the weekend
issue jumped from 60 cents to
$1t.00.
Mr. Vernon Lee, president of
the Bahamian News the
largest newspaper and
magazine distributors and
wholesalers in the Bahamas
said that the Herald was now
selling the paper to them at the
street price with no discounts
and added to the high cost was
the fact of having to pay the
full freight rates from Miami
without any special reductions.
Also from next month Mr.
Lee said that they would not
be allowed to return any
unsold papers to the Herald. "I
was told by the company that
they suffered a $16,000 to
$18,000 loss on their Bahamas
sales here last year," said Mr.
Lee.
"I'm sorry to be forced to
put up the price for papers, but
I have no alternative other than
to cut them out altogether," he
said today. "The triple blow of
the extra cost, freight and no
returns just could not be borne
by us," he said.
The daily sale of Miami

300 to 1,000

citizenship" sought by the
government.
Today's announcement is
the culmination of seven weeks
of igot;.; .as I .tween Chasei
Manhattan, the Bahamas
Development Corporation, the
Housing Commission of the
Ministry of Health and the
Bahamas Monetary Authority.
Mr. Maycock, who was
intimately involved in the
negotiations, said it was his
belief the government could
not help but recognize this
action on the part of Chase as a
true example of the spirit of
partnership and a
demonstration of corporate
citizenship that is most desired
in the community today."
He said it came at a time
when "the air is filled with
echoes of what ought to be
done to fulfil the social needs
of the country while too little
tangible proof of genuine
concern has been emanating
from the sector which is best
suited to promote and
maintain the system of free
enterprise to which the
government and the country
subscribe."
In this context he welcomed
Chase's "outstanding gesture"
and said he was sure it would
be seen as a pattern to be
emulated.
Mr. Mackey, speaking on
behalf of the Ministry of
Health and Housing, expressed
his sincere gratitude to Chase
for making a significant
contribution to the country
and to Mr. Maycock and the
Development Corporation for
their untiring efforts in
pursuing housing finance for
the community.

SIXTY-FIVE YEARS of
work usually end with
retirement, but the Royal Bank
of Canada today marked the
65th anniversary of its
operations in the Bahamas with
the opening of a new branch in

The new branch, the Royal's

LONDON British and
Irish leaders announced last
night they had agreed to form
a Council of Ireland aimed at
building links between the
Republic and the British-ruled
north.
Ihe agreement, made known
alter more than 52 hours of
talks in an English country
mansion in Sunningdale was
one of the main aims of the
tripartite conference.
O(licials said that after
reaching the accord, delegates
began a full session which is
expected to wind up with the
publication of a "joint
declaration."
lhe likelihood of success
had seemed remote earlier in
the day as the high-powered
teams representing Britain, the
Irish Republic and Northern
Ireland resumed talks after
snatching a few hours of sleep.
As the politicians argued for
the fourth straight day. gunfire
crackled across the British
province on the other side on
the Irish Sea One person was
killed and six wounded in 13
shooting incidents reported in
the past 24 hours.
The talks resumed after a

agreement being reached.

The conference, held amid
tight security in the
Sunningdale Park mansion 30

its fourth day with the
outcome balanced on a razor's
edge

At stake was the formation
of a Council of Ireland

-NIXON'S BIG GAMBLE


Did he act legally in claiming deductions?


Did he make gain on estate sale?


WASHINGTON President
Nixon is gambling more than a
quarter-million dollars of his
own money that a joint
congressional committee will
agree he paid the proper
amount of federal income
taxes since taking office.
As he made a massive,
unprecedented disclosure of his
private finances during the
weekend, the president asked
the House-Senate Committee
on internal revenue taxation to
decide two questions:
Did he make a S500,000
in deductions for donation of
his vice presidential papers to
the government deductions
which helped reduce his federal
income taxes to less than
S6.000 in the past three years?
Did he make a 5117,000
gain in the 1970 sale of a
portion of his San Clemente
estate, as one set of personal
auditors recently concluded, or
did he show no gain, as his tax
advisers decided at the time?
If the c congressional


committee decides against
Nixon on both counts,
presidential aides said Nixon
would file amended returns
and pay additional tax. That
tax could amount to more than
S250,000. With interest, the
total could top $300,000.
Key elements disclosed in
documents released by Nixon
and by the examination of the
president's 1969-1972 tax
returns made available to
newsmen show:
He has become virtually a
millionaire since taking office.
An audit showed his net worth
increased from $307,000 on
Jan. 1, 1969, to $988,000 on
May 31, 1973. His assets
include about $430,000 in
bank deposits and real estate
valued at more than $964,000.
Most of his liabilities are real
estate mortgages.
Because of major deductions
for the vice presidential papers,
for interest and property taxes,
he was able to reduce his
federal income tax liability to


Liz and Richard make it up


LONDON "We are back
together again," said
Elizabeth Taylor, "and that
must be good."
The film actress and
Richard Burton arrived in
London from Los Angeles by
commercial airliner after a
hospital room reconciliation.
Burton wheeled her off the
plane and they borded their
private jet for a flight to
Rome.
"i am a very happy man,"
said the 48-year-old Burton.
He refused to discuss the
reconciliation telling
newsmen: "Don't be so
stupid. I am not going to tell
you intimate details of that
nature."
He said they would go to
Naples, where he is making a
picture, and would spend
Christmas in Venice or Rome.
Burton said his wife would
be recovered from her recent
operation in about a month.
"It is a question of
recuperation," he said. "The
trouble started when she
injured herself in a fall while
making a film. The injury led
to the operation."
Until Burton arrived in Los
Angeles Friday night, friends
said Henry Wynberg, of Los
Angeles, a former used car
salesman, was the No. I man
in Miss Taylor's life.
But on Sunday it was
Burton who pushed his
wife's wheelchair onto the
plane for London and told
newsmen: "She's going to get
a lot of rest and sunshine."
A spokesman tor the
couple said Miss Taylor, 41,
was experiencing pain from


her abdominal surgery two
weeks ago at the UELA
Medical Centre.
Miss Taylor had been
expected to leave the hospital
this weekend and Burton was
reported to have travelled to
Miss Taylor's bedside out of
concern for her illness.
"His basic intent was to
visit her while she was ill,"
said a spokeswoman for the
actress. "But after they got
together they decided to
work out a reconciliation.
"The decision to leave was
a spur-of-the-moment thing.
They are very excited and
happy about it."
Burton and Miss Taylor
were married March 15.
1964. They separated last
July 3 and the actress wrote:
"I believe with all my heart
that this separation will,
ultimately bring us back to'
where we should be and that
is together."
Heathrow airport did itself
proud to make Miss Taylor's
trip from the airliner to their
private plane as comfortable
as possible.
Burton who wore a red
blazer over a rollneck
sweater, wheeled her from
the plane to an elevator and
down to a waiting car.
Miss Taylor was wearing
Burton's reconciliation gift to
her a diamond necklace -
under her coat.
"It's lovely," she said. "It's
heart-shaped but I'm not
going to strip off to show it
to you."
"I always buy her a gift,"
Butron commented. (AP).

BRUSSELS Secretary of
State Henry Kissinger thanked
Holland and Portugal for their
support during the Middle East
war and arranged to dispatch
an energy expert to help the
Dutch through the Arab oil
boycott.
Kissinger's meetings with
Max Van Der Stoel, the Dutch
Foreigh Minister, and Rui
Patricio, of Portugal,
spotlighted the deep divisions
between the United States and
its other European allies.
U.S. officials hinted that
Kissinger may try to prod the
Europeans to share their


dwindling oil supplies and that
the United States will arrange
emergency shipments for
Holland if necessary.
He is sending William
Donaldson, Undersecretary of
State for energy problems, to
the Hague Dec. 17 for what are
called "contingency talks."
Holland was targeted by
Saudi Arabia and other Arab
oil producers for an embargo
because of its pro-Israel stance
during the Middle East war.
Portugal was the only ally to
permit use of its bases for the
big U.S. arms deliveries to
Israel. (AP)

Pound slumps again


as dollar climbs


LONDON The British
pound slumped to an all-time
low in the London foreign
exchange today as the U.S..
dollar improved strongly.
The London Stock
Exchange resumed last week's
sharp and steady decline that
was only interrupted by a rally
late Friday. The Financial
Times Industrial Index
dropped 6.2 pounds to 334.6
in the first hour of trading.
In the London foreign
exchange the pound fell I'P
cents in relation to the dollar
to a record low of $2.3115. On
the Continent, however, the
pound was fairly steady.
The two slumps came at the
start of what London

in industrial action aimed at

And on Thursday the
administration is announcing
foreign trade figures for
November which many market
operators expect to show a
record deficit.
The U.S. dollar, meanwhile,
improved further in Frankfurt,
Zurich and Paris as well as in
London. In early trading, it
was quoted at 2.6435 marks,
up more than half a pfennig,
4.5550 francs, up to centimes,

threaten

new oil

cut-back
KUWAIT Arab oil
ministers said they will cut
back oil production by another
five percent in January, but
pledged to lift their total
embargo against the United
States as soon as Israel starts
pulling out of occupied Arab
lands.
The pledge issued in this
wealthy Persian gulf oil
sheikdom stipulated that Arab
oil would resume flowing to
the United States only at the
beginning of implementation
of a pullout agreement signed
by Israel and guaranteed by
Washington.
The accord must detail
conditions for "withdrawal of
Israel ,from all territories
occupied since the June war of
1967, with foremost priority
to Jerusalem and in accordance
with a fixed timetable," the
ministers said.
The Saudi Arabian oil
ministers, Sheik Ahmad Zaki
Yamani, said in Washington in
NBC's Meet the Press that
Arabs would remove the U.S.
embargo "when Israel agrees to
withdraw and the United
States guarantees the
withdrawal."
Yamani's version of the
Arab stand appeared softer,
tying the flow of oil only to a
guaranteed agreement and
omitting the Kuwait demand
for prior beginning of the
pullout.
Defense Minister Moshe
Dayan said in Tel Aviv he is
satisfied with the American
response to his request for
more sophisticated arms to
face new Soviet weapons
delivered to the Arabs.
Returning from talks in
Washington with Secretary of
State Henry Kissinger and
Defense Secretary James
Schlesinger, Dayan said both
men "showed understanding of
our issues and needs."
Dayan said Israel is going to
the Middle East peace
conference in Geneva with no
preconditions, even on the
return of Israeli prisoners of
war from Syria. (AP).

The first Act: 244 years ago


By ETIENNE DUPUCH
I TRY TO help readers of this column by giving them the
benefit of my own experiences gathered in various parts of the
world.
I realize that not many of them have taken advantage of my
efforts to help but I am not discouraged. I go right on trying
because I believe that the time may come when some people will
remember the information I have handed out in this column and
make use of it.
On Friday I wrote about the importance of agriculture -
domestic agriculture to the economy of the islands and the
security of a large number of our people.
I wrote on this subject almost every day during the last was. I
set an example to show what could be done by operating my own
farm a farm that completely freed my family from the need of
imported foods.
For a time it looked like the people would be obliged to return
to the land for survival.
When America entered the war the tourist business collapsed
completely. Disaster seemed certain. So much so that the Duke of
Windsor, who was then governor of the islands, headed a
committee with the object of scaling the economy down to an
agricultural level. I served with him on that committee.
The committee was making headway until America built air
bases in this island. Thousands of troops were stationed here and
hundreds of wealthy English evacuees came to the island to
escape the bombing in the Battle of Britain. Then came the
recruitment of labour for farm and factory work in the US.
These new, unexpected and extraordinary activities gave
the islands a level of prosperity never before experienced by our
people.
This prosperity was spread over all the islands because most of
the labourers who went to the U.S. were drawn from the Out
Islands and a percentage of their earnings was sent back to their
dependents at home. In many cases women in the Out Islands
found themselves handling money for the first time.

The history of the islands shows that, whenever the fortunes of
our people have hit rock bottom, they have turned to the land for
succour.
Land in the Bahamas is not very hospitable. The soil is thin and
not very fertile. And the land is dry over long periods of the year.
But still it will yield enough to keep soul and body together when
starvation knocks at the door.

There has been talk of unemployment in the islands for a long
time. This must be so because the building industry has
practically collapsed and businesses generally have been forced to
curtail their activities because of the inability to employ efficient
supervisory staff.
I know that pressure has been brought on businesses operated


Open letter to


Sir Etienne


DEAR, Sir Etienne,
I see in to-night's editorial
that you plan to "write the
Chaplin affair again on
Saturday" and I presume it will
be another piece portraying a
misguided, meddling Board
deciding against a saintly Mr.
Chaplin. As an old friend and
admirer of yours, it has been
an enlightening experience for
me to sit on the other side of
the fence for once. It has been
frightening to see editorial
comment and conjecture
become facts in the minds of
people who admire you but do
not know any better than you
do the real John Chaplin. It has
been frightening, too, to see
the issue change. The real issue
is John Chaplin, not Bill
Holowesko or the Board of St.


Andrew's
A feature article in 'TV
Guide" this summer made a
deep impression on me. It was
titled "What We Saw vs. What
Really Happened". It described
in detail how the attitude of
the American people toward
the war in Vietnam was
influenced by what they saw
night after night on their TV
screens. The gap between what
was actually happening, and
what they thought was
happening, was frighteningly
large. I have come to the
conclusion that what has
happened in the Bahamas with
regard to the Chaplin Affair is
a very close parallel. May I
touch on some points as they
Page 6, Col. 1


The land is poor to begin with. When you bum it you destroy
it for a long time. Oh yes, burnt land will yield a quick crop but
after that it is not only dead but, what little is left of it, suffers
from erosion and disappears, especially if it is near the seashore
where a heavy rainfall will wash it into the ocean.
In the old days, when our people depended on the land for
survival, visitors to the islands wondered why, in some of the
Out Island settlements, people had to walk to their farms 20 to
30 miles from their homes. The reason for this was that the land
near their homes had been destroyed by burning.
You can see the result of burning land in areas in the Eastern
District San Souci, Camperdown and Winton where farmers
had extensive tomato fields. I know because I have places on my
property where it is now bare, flat rock. We built up our land for
farming by using fertilizers, horse manure and seaweed that we
carted from the beach at East End in a horse drawn wagon. Land
can be revitalized by using rotted seaweed and horse manure but
this is a lot of work. Our people don't like work if they can avoid
it. And so start out by not burning land and learn from
government agricultural inspectors how to rotate crops so as to
keep on revitalizing the land you use.

Burning land is nothing new. Even the Indians Columbus found
when he landed at San Salvador followed this practice. But no
effort was made to stop it until 244 years ago when Woodes
Rogers, the colony's first Royal Governor, established the first
parliament in Nassau, composed of 24 members. This parliament
met in the house of one of the elected members on September
29, 1729. Six years from now the Bahamas will celebrate 250
years of government by an elected parliament.
The first piece of legislation dealt with by the parliament
concerned the burning of land.
It read in part: "An Act to prevent the destroying by fire any
Timber and Trees growing upon these Islands. Whereas it hath
been the practice of evil-minded people to set fire, burn and
destroy the standing woods to the great detriment and prejudice
of these Islands. Now to the end such practices may be prevented
for the future be it enacted that if any person shall wilfully or
carelessly by any ways or means set fre to any of the standing
woods on these islands, and be thereupon lawfully convicted such
an offender shall forfeit and pay the sum of twenty pounds."
** *****


You may judge how seriously burning of land was considered


JOHN CHAPLIN SAYS

'THANK YOU' TO ALL


EDITOR, The Tribune,
As you know, I have not
written to the newspaper since
my first statement in June
regarding the manner in which
the St. Andrew's School Board
terminated my services to the
school.
During all this time there
have been tireless efforts made
by parents and colleagues to
clear my name of charges
levelled against me. The recent
teachers' report which I
received through the mail,
reached me at the same time as
it did other parents and
shareholders. So far as I am
concerned, this now clears the
matter, and it should be
understood, contrary to what
is being said, that I do not seek
to return to St. Andrew's
School.

QUERY TO P.M,
EDITOR, The Tribune,
ONCE again the question of
security sensitive positions has
arisen. Not only does it pertain
to overnight granting of
citizenship to Sinclair Outt ,n
but also to non-Bahamians or
paper-carrying Bahamians in
the higher echelon of the
Public Service. How long do we
have to listen to the values of
Bahamianization when we see
flagrant disregard for
experienced and qualified
Bahamians who have given
their entire lives for
improvement of this country as
a whole when these
paper-carrying Bahamians were
busy trumpetting their concern
for self-advancement at all
cost?
Mr. Prime Minister, please
look into these inequities and
give sincere concern to these
Bahamians (authentic
Bahamians) who suffered to
gain education and professional
expertise when the only claim
to fame these profiteers had was
colonial servility and disdain
for the very people they have
come to exploit. Let them
prostitute themselves but do
not aid them by neglecting our
own people and their obvious
worth and loyalty to this
land.
ONLY A BAHAMIAN
-That's All!


I make this statement in
order to thank all those who
have worked so loyally on my
behalf and in the hope that
plans for the future of the
school be of a constructive and
not a personal nature.
JOHN H. CHAPLIN
Nassau,
December 9, 1973.

IN HIS COLUMN last
Monday Sir Etienne Dupuch
reported that during a recent
visit to Grand Cayman he met
an American couple "every day
in the lobby of the Holiday Inn
or on the beach."
"When they heard I was
from Nassau they became
enthusiastic," Sir Etienne
wrote. "They said they had
spent a memorable vacation at
a hotel on Paradise Island.
They talked mostly about a
taxi driver ... I think they said
his name was Bain ... who
apparently was the main factor
in making their stay there
pleasant."
Sir Etienne went on to
comment on the important
part people like taxi drivers
could play in making a lasting
impression on visitors to the
island.
On Thursday a man giving
his name as Arnold Bain
phoned Sir Etienne at his
home.
"I believe I'm the Bain to
whom you referred in your
column," he said. "I'm very
pleased to hear from you," Sir

"One of my most interesting
jobs was at the Porcupine (lub
from 1946 to 1948," Mr. Bain
recalled.
The Porcupine Club was
a millionaire's rendezvous on
Paradise Island during the years
when Nassau had a short
winter tourist season and was
maintained as a quality resort.
This club was a gathering place
for some of the world's great
men who visited Nassau during
that period.
WAITER FIRST
"Before going into the taxi
business," Mr. Bain said, "I was
a waiter and bar tender in
several hotels. My first job in
1940 was with the Royal
Victoria."
He later worked for the
Montagu, the Rozelda (Carlton
House), Pilot House and the
Drake. Three of these hotels

Etienne said. "But what makes
you think you are the Bain.
Are you the only Bain on the
taxi ranks?"
GETS LETTERS
"I know because I am
always getting letters from
people I have driven telling me
how pleasant I had made their
stay in the island," he said with
convincing assurance.
And so Sir Etienne asked
him to come to The Tribune
office for an interview.
He is 51-year-old Arnold J.
Bain, driver of station wagon
taxi No. 33. He has been
driving a taxi for 20 years and
is now attached to the Paradise
Island Hotel.
"What makes your handling
of visitors so outstanding?", Sir
Etienne asked Mr. Bain.
GOOD FORTUNE
"It was my good fortune to
be the driver of Miss Mary
Moseley for three years before
she died", he said. "I learned a
great deal from her and so I
can tell my patrons the history
of the islands and some
interesting stories about places
I show them."
The Nassau Guardian was
founded by a Moseley 129
years ago. Mary Moseley was
the last member of the family to
publish the newspaper. She was
recognized as an outstanding
historian of the Bahamas.
"Miss Moseley gave me
books on the islands to read,"
Mr. Bain said. "I learned a
great deal through my contact
with hei."

come to mind.
Board Chairman. Those who
really know Bill Holowesko
well have an unusually
profound respect for his
integrity above all things. He
will blush to see me say this,
but I always think of Bill as
one of the two most
honourable men I know. Bill is
also intelligent and, believe it
or not, charitable. It is all the
more distressing to me,
therefore, to see so much
vitriol heaped on his head by
those who do not really know
him. It is my feeling that the
Tribune family has been the
instrument and spearhead of
this attack, and it should not
be difficult for any thinking
person to figure out the
Tribune's sources: Mr. Chaplin
himself, or those he
misinformed. I will return to
this.
Board Members. It is not
necessary to go into great
detail. Suffice it to say that a
year ago most people would
agree they were respected
members of the colniunity.

the Board toI disg race him.
They gave him ,r ,F.:-nlrl itL

he rushed into print- and those
who allowed theirer-iotions to
rule them set up a cry for
blood which finally could not
be denied. This leads lme
to:
The Board's Slat ement.

I think it is significant that
to this day not a single
Director, not even the one who
stepped down for a different
reason, has the least doubt that
their decision not to rehire Mr.
Chaplin was right. In the final
analysis, shareholders and
parents must take that decision

TEACHERS
THE TRIBUNE has receive
by 21 teachers of St. Andrew's


on faith. In a way, the
Directors were the only
eyewitnesses. Most of the rest
is through Mr. Chaplin's eyes as
it were.
I think it is also significant
that to this day not a single
person or group or friend has
stepped forward to say in
unmistakable terms that they
have reason to believe that Mr.
Chaplin is indeed anhonourable
person, that he can be
depended upon, that if he says
hell do something, he will.
Supporters say they "got along
fine" with him. I am glad. So
did 1. But I cannot doubt the
word of ten honourable people,
with nothing to gain from the
situation but a bunch of abuse,
that he had become
detrimental to the school.


ENDORSE

STATEMENT
ed the following letter signed
s School.


TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN
It has come to our attention that a few people are still of
the misguided opinion that the statement produced by
teachers of Saint Andrew's School giving the true facts
regarding the dismissal of Mr. John Chaplin is not
supported by the Staff of the school.
We wish it to be clearly understood, therefore, that we,
the undersigned, have read the teacher's report and fully
endorse the statements contained therein.
SIGNED:
L. Medcalf T. Dunn
J. Black T. D. Close
P. Dawson A. S. Murray
G. Hanslip G. Barrott
C.Wightman D. Taylor
J. Astbury W. Allan Tarmey
K. 0' Sullivan D.M. Jenner
J. P. R. Barrott Martin Finning
Anita J. Murray Anne Albury
M.A. Brown M. J. Tarmey
J. Dunn.
These signatures represent over 90% of the teachers still
on the Staff who have served under Mr. Chaplin. The
remainder mainly constitute those criticised in the report.


CONTROVERSY


would appease them." "Don't
you want the school to be a
happy place again?"
My answer to this is, of
course I want the school to be
a happy place. But not if
principles and an honourable
man must be thrown to the
lions. I want my children to
know about principles even
more than I want them to
know about reeting and
writing. And I am confident
that the teachers have a lot
more interest in the school
than to close it down by
walking out. If I am wrong in


this, then I am prepared to see
my child suffer the
consequences. It will not be
the end of the world, mine or
his. He will just have to take
his summer vacation next year
at some other time.
I am sorry to have taken so
much space to stand and be
counted.
RON LIGHTBOURN
December 6, 1973.
Nassau, N.P

THE EDITOR'S REPLY
(IN his letter Mr.
Lightbourn says that the-real


issue in the St. Andrew's
School controversy is Mr.
John Chaplin, not chairman
Bill Holowesko or his Board
of "ten honourable people".
We think Mr. Lightbourn is
behind the times. Some of
these people are so wrapped
up in their dislike for Mr.
Chaplin that they fail to
understand that time and
events, as usual, have passed
them by.
(John Chaplin is no longer
the issue. The chairman and
Board of St. Andrew's are no
longer the issue. The whole


isme and the mosTl
important issue is now the
future of a school. The future
of 770 children your
children and my children.
(Mr. Lightbourn's cavalier*
"I'm-all-right-Jack" attitude
of let the school close, my
children will be fine, they can
take their "summer vacation
next year at some other
time", completely disregards
parents who might take their
children's education a bit
more seriously. Mr.
Lightbourn can afford to take
this attitude. His two
delightful children are now
old enough to go away to
school. But what of those

parents who cannot send
their children away either
because it is financially
impossible or because the
child is too young? Has any
thought been given to these
children or their parents?
(Oh, no, as long as Jack's
all right in his ivory tower,
"all's right with the world".
SAnd that, my friends, is one
of the typically arrogant
attitudes that has helped to
destroy human relations in
our dearly beloved country.
(Surely, Mr. Lightbourn
knows that the Board held
the money that was rightfully
due Mr. Chaplin as a
bargaining lever to have him
sign a severance document
that included a clause that he
would not apply for
reappointment' to St.
Andrew's for the next ten
years. So John Chaplin is out
of the picture.
(Now for the Board. We
would suggest that now that
they have accomplished their
mission, they should be
gracious enough to step down
as a body and make way for a
new team to pick up the
S- '-" pieces and rebuild what was
once a happy institution.
(Whether the Board likes it
or not, it, as a body, has lost
its credibility. If St. Andrew's
School is to have a future this
Board must bow out.

controversy Mr. Chaplin has
acted with the children and

mind. He has been a

he misinformed" were The
Tribune's only sources in
what has been printed in this
newspaper. This is not true.
(Mr. Chaplin made one
statement to this newspaper.
We have met with one Board
member and Mr. Bill
Holowesko has put his and
the Board's side of the story
in an interview with this
newspaper. Dr. Andrew
Esfakis' letter to the Board
was published by The
Tribune. We have also met
with many other people and
discovered many other things
- some relevant, some not so
relevant to the situation.
(If, as Mr. Lightbourn
suggests, we have nut spent
enoughh time with the Board
to know their side of the
story then Mr. Lightboum
personally knows whose fault
this is. Surely he hasn't
forgotten a recent
conversation with me in
which he said: "If I, Ronnie
Lightbourn, can arrange a
meeting with the Board will
you see them?" My reply was
that I would be happy to
meet with all, or any member
of the Board at any time. Mr.
Lightbourn was certain that
he could arrange such a
meeting. He promised to call
back on an appointed day.
Although he did not call on
the day that was suggested,
he did telephone a few days
later. Several Board members
were away, he said, and those
that were in Nassau did not
wish to reopen the issue. So
much for meeting with the
Board. Therefore, don't
blame us if you don't like our
sources of information -
blame the board, who claim
that they have so much truth
on their side that they seem
reluctant to share it with us.


("In the final analysis,
shareholders and parents
must take that (the Board's)
decision on faith. In a way,
the Directors were the only
eyewitnesses." This is Mr.
Lightbourn's statement a
most extraordinary
statement.
(To what were the Board
members eyewitnesses?
(The teachers, who were
the only eyewitnesses, say
that the Board's accusations
are not true. Mrs. Barbara
Lester, an eyewitness to the
selection of a science teacher,
whom, the Board in its
wisdom says Mr. Chaplin did
not select, was appalled at the
Board's misstatement of
facts in this matter. Mr.
Holowesko has since
telephoned Mrs. Lester's
father to say that the Board
was wrong in this instance.
(And, despite all of these
eyewitnesses, we are asked to
accept the Board's decision
on faith because the Board
members are the "only
witnesses''! What
preposterous rubbish!!! To
say it in good old Bahamian
- "Man yinner mussy tink
we's fool"!!
(No the Board's hearsay
has been too much hearsay to
swallow. The whole future of
the school depends upon
their resignation.
(We hope that they will
now show good sense, be
magnanimous victors, regard
their mission as accomplished
and take a well earned rest
from the direction of St.
Andrew's School -ED.)

ZNS STAFF PUT ON


SHOW FOR CHARITIES

IT WAS A FULL HOUSE at La Cabaret Theatre on
Paradise Island Thursday night as ZNS personnel performed
for charity the musical "Yes We Can Can". Among those
present were from left to right, Mrs. Oscar Sawyer; Sen.
Milo Butler, Jr., Chairman of the Bahamas Broadcasting
Commission; Mrs. Lynden 0. Pindling, Mr. Calsey Johnson
of ZNS; Prime Minister Lynden O. Pindling and Mrs. Milo
Butler jr.
Even though most of the theatre's tables had been taken
out and replaced by rows of chairs, every seat was filled and
there were well over 150 addition patrons packing the aisles
and the back of the room for the performance. All proceeds
from the show were to go to the Ranfurly homes, the
Children's Emergency Hostel and the Crippled Children's
Committee.

DEAR ABBY: Since your column is read by millions,
will you please help tell runaways about our program? It
is called "Operation Peace of Mind," and was begun as a
result of parents' anxieties following the recent mass slay-
ings in Houston.
A runaway, who wants to let his parents or a loved one
know that he is alive and well, may call us FREE from
anywhere in the United States. He tells us whom to call and
what he wants us to say. We will not trace his call or
attempt to find him. We do no preaching or counseling.
We do ask if he needs any help, and if he does, we tell
him where it is available in his area. We then call his
parents or loved one and relay the message.
SOur telephones are manned by volunteers 24 hours a
day. Our office space was donated by the Holiday Inn, and
the Texas governor's office pays for the calls.
T Out of state call .............. 1-800-231-6946
In Texas call ............... 1-800-392-3352
In Houston call ................. .... 524-3821
Abby, will you please help us pass the word?
A VOLUNTEER WHO CARES
DEAR VOLUNTEER: Will I? You bet! What better
holiday gift could a parent receive than to know that his
child away from home is alive and well?


DEAR ABBY: I know for a fact that my father is
having an affair with another woman. My brother is 21,
and I am 26, so we both know what it's all about.
Our problem is, should we tell our mother? When we
approached Dad, he denied it as we expected he would, but
we know it's a fact. If we tell Mom, we will feel responsi-
ble for her hurt. If we don't tell her, she will find out
eventually, and when she does she will feel that we have
betrayed her by keeping it from her.
I am sure Dad will get caught sooner or later, but it is
so difficult to see him lying and cheating. Should we wait
and let him hang himself? Or should we tell Mom what we
know and pray for the best? IN THE MIDDLE
DEAR IN: It's Dad's affair. Let him hang himself. The
old saw, "The wife is always the last to know," ain't
necessarily so.


DEAR ABBY: I am a 52-year-old widow. My son is
being married. The bride's mother is putting on the wed-
ding. She sent me an invitation so I called her up and
asked her if I could bring my gentleman friend as an
escort. She said: "No, I have you fixed up with Frank for
the wedding."
I told her I didn't care for Frank, so she said: "If you
don't care for Frank, you can go with Paul."
I asked her how old Paul was, because I didn't know
him. She said he was in his late twenties!
I then said: "I don't want any kid my son's age to
escort me. I have a steady gentleman friend, why can't I
bring him?"
She said: "Because we can't handle any more than we
have already invited."
Abby, don't you think I should have been allowed to
bring my own escort to my son's wedding? He's not just
another guy. We are serious about each other, and will

South inferred from the lead
that trumps wtifMd break, for no
West would lead a singleton
against a grand slam. Still less
would he do so holding four
trumps.
Surveying dummy, declare
thought that he could see twelve
tricks: four trumps, five hearts,
two diamonds and the 4A. A
club ruff wuSLd be tile 13th.
So he won the first trick in
his hand, cashed the 4A and
ruffed a club. Then he drew
trumps. When the hearts broke
5-1 he had to make the right
guess in diamonds and in the
event misguessed.
If only the hand hadn't looked
so simple, South would have won
the first trick in dummy. Then
he could have ruffed two clubs,
getting back to his hand, flrst
with a trump and the second
time with the OK. Now four
heart tricks would have sufficed
and a different team would have
represented PFrance at Ostend.

BOBBY


By GLADSTONE THURSTON
LIG HT heavyweight
contender 22-year-old Bobby
Lloyd Saturday put in a strong
challenge for a crack at Bob
Foster's world title.
Giving way to a 15 pound
weight advantage, Lloyd in a
ten round unanimous decision
battered former world light
heavyweight champ Vincente
Rondon to a pitiful state.
And when it was all over,
Lloyd had one complaint to
make: "lie didn't give me a
chance to land my right
effectively. He kept coming at
me so I had to keep shooting
that jab."
It was as if Lloyd did not
need the right after all. His left
jabs centred around Rondon's
eyes and left them both puffed
and almost shut.
Lloyds victory was his
eighth in pro fights against two
losses.
In the final analysis, judge
Jervis Smith saw Lloyd
winning six rounds to
Rondon's four: judge Sugar
Kid Bowe gave it seven to three
in favour of Lloyd referee


ALL THE WAY


Nelson Chipman judged it nine
to one tor Lloyd.
Lloyd's manager Pat (urrey
was much satisfied with his
man's performance. "It proves
that Bobby is a world class
fighter and he deserves to he in
the world ratings," he said.
Currey added that Lloyd is one
year away from a title shot.
"We are taking it one step at
a time," said Currey. "The
next step will he getting Mike
Quarry here." New Providence.
Currey said, is Lloyd's fighting
base.
Entering the ring at 175
pounds to Rondon's 190.
Lloyd in the first round was
content to just use the jab on
his experienced opponent.
Rondon on the other hand
showed no real form and just
bobbed and weaved against the
attack.
Going into the second
round, Lloyd proved to be the
aggressor but when he tried to
open up, Rondon made sure
they ended in a clinch.
It was the third round when
Rondon really tasted what
Lloyd had to offer a

left-right combination zeroed
on the head. Midway in that
period, Lloyd again broke
loose with another of his
crushing combinations this
time staggering the ring
veteran.
Rondon's punches were
thrown with so little effect
that some fans wondered


whether he wasir-i shape. To
Bahamas heavywe-ight champ
Boston Blackie, "t-re's not the
Rondon that ',-I ,lil mie."

"We outiloxed the fox,"
commented an el-ated Ciurrey
after the bout. '-Bobby was
one step ahead of I -inalll night
long."

ACTION PACKED is the
only way to describe
McAlpine's 5-3 win. over
Paradise in yesterday's BFA
game at Clifford Park.
Down 2-0 at half-time,
McAlpine, inspired by coach
Dick Wilson. fought back to
draw level at 2-2 after only
eight minutes of the second
half;
Thereafter tempers flared
as the temperamental
Paradise became flustered.
For the second time in three
weeks McVeigh was sent off,
followed by McAlpine's left
back, lan Lever.
Fullone's return to the
midfield made a big
difference and Paradise, with
the graceful Rossi baffling the
McAlpine defence,

first half.

minutes and in the 19th,
minute Bocus bisected the
McAlpine defence with a well
timed through ball and
lacoppi ran onto the ball to
score from 15 yards.

Paradise continued to
dominate with Fullone,
Bocus and Rossi controlling
the midfield and in the 40th
minute went 2-0 ahead when
Bocus took advantage of a
bad clearance from Williams
and hit a low skimming shot
past the advancing Dale.
Paradise eased off the
pressure and McAlpine found
their rhythm.
In the 52nd minute Wilson
hit a free kick past Pedrini for
McAlpine's first goal.

Crozier headed it into the
net for the equaliser.

McAlpine piled on the
pressure. Wilson's scything,
accurate passes split the
Paradise defence wide open,
on several occasions.


However, in the 65th
minute Rossi picked up a
poor clearance by Gibbons,
laid the ball off to Black.
whose shot hit the post, and
ran in to slam the ball into
the open McAlpine goal.

Paradise again began to
dominate but McAlpine
pulled back to 3-3 when
outside right Mike Pixton hit
a low shot between Pedrini
and the goal post from the
narrowest of angles in the
68th minute.

At this stage tempers
started to flare. McVeigh
floored Haywood with
a punch Muhammad Ali
would have been proud of
and was promptly sent off.
Fullone chopped Simpson
down in the Paradise box in
the 78th minute and Lever
blasted in a goal from the free
kick from eight yards to give
McAlpine a 4-3 lead.

With Paradise looking
totally dejected McAlpine
surged forward and Mihas
gave away another goal when
he tripped the battered
Simpson. Wilson made no
mistake from the penalty
spot to ensure a McAlpine
win.

Jets pip Crushers



to clinch title


By IVAN JOHNSON
GARY NEWBOLD blocked an attempted
kick by the Crushers on a fourth down, seized
the ball and ran 47 yards to clinch a narrow
18-13 win for the Nassau Jets, Saturday night
at the QE Sports Centre.
With only minutes of the game remaining it
looked as though the Jets would suffer their
first defeat in two seasons. As it is the Jets are
still unbeaten and have captured the BAFA
league championship for the second year
running.
The Jets took an early lead of 12-0 in the
first quarter.
Quarterback Jesse Ferguson ran one yard
the first TD after eight minutes and in the
13th minute Earl Bostwick ran for a 27 yd TD
to make it 12-0 to the Jets.
The Crushers closed the gap to 12-6 in the
second quarter through a TD from Garth
Rodgers who caught a 32 yard pass from
Grant.
Dangerman Shakey Martin put the Crushers
into the lead half way through the fourth


quarter when he ran a wide sweep to the right
end zone to tie the score at 12-12. Martin then
ran for the extra point.
With the clock running out the Jets took the-
bal on their 41 yard line and lost possession
on the third down.
A Crushers victory seemed inevitable but
Newbold galloped 47 yards for a memorable
TD to keep the Jets record unscathed.
Godfrey Roberts kicked a 34 yd field goal
with 13 seconds left to cap the Marlins most
productive game ever Sunday afternoon, as
they blanked the Hurricanes 31-0, in Freeport
The Marlins' defence held the Hurricanes t'
only one first down in the first half as th
offense built up a 15-0 lead on a two yard TH
dash by Donald Sweeting, a one yard plunge
by Andy Key and a safety.
In the third and fourth quarters Franl
Barr ran 35 yards for a TD, Rickey Thompson
ran one yard for another TD and Godfrey
Roberts rounded off the Marlins scoring with a
34 yard field goal at 31-0.
