UBY COOPER-DARLING, 32-year-old mother of

pendent candidate in the January 18 St. bsarnabas
election.
rs. Darling, a Wilson Tract resident, is a long-time
porter of the PLP, but not a card-carrying member. She
she will contest the election, even against party
inee Sinclair Outten, because "it is time for a woman

nabas need someone to really represent them and think
at their whole welfare."
&e made it clear she is not a women's liberation

Mrs. Darling is a daughter of the wellknown president
the Bahamas Baptist Missionary and Educational
vention the Rev. Dr. R. E. Cooper, and teaches music at
Jordan Memorial and Prince Williams Baptist Schools.
I have always had it in mind to run in politics," she told

GRANT'S TOWN M.P.
Franklyn Wilson has unveiled a
plan to attack the
unemployment, housing,
education and economic
problems in his constituency
by first sponsoring a complete
survey to determine the true
extent of those problems.
Mr. Wilson told a press
conference at his headquarters
on Market Street that the
information compiled in the
census "shall be the basis for
future programmes to be
launched by myself on behalf
of and as representative for the
constituency, by the branch of
the PLP in the area, and by any
other community action
groups with a desire to help."
Mr. Wilson said the final
weeks of this year will be spent
advising all residents of the
purposes of the survey, and in
trying to allay anticipated fears
that some of the questions to
be asked are included in the

shortly after Dr. Holder went
to Jamaica for his graduation.


survey for ulterior motives.
He said the actual census,
covering every home in Grant's
Town, is to be launched by at
least 25 volunteer enumerators
- all Grant's Town residents
in the first week in January.
It is hoped that the survey
will be completed in ten days,
the M.P. said, and some of the
final results are expected to be
available by the end of the
month.
QUESTIONNAIRE
The four-page questionnaire
will seek information on the
name, age, sex, employment
status and nationality of every
Grant's Town resident.
Unemployed persons will be
asked in addition to list the
kinds of work they are
qualified for, their educational
backgrounds and their work
experience.
Heads of households will be
asked to reveal into which of
16 income brackets the total


in addition to rent, rates, house
sizes and toilet facilities.
Mr. Wilson conceded that
some reluctance was
anticipated in answering some
of the questions, such as those
relating to income and
nationality, but he stressed
that all information relating to
individual households will be
"strictly confidential," and
that the start of the survey is
being delayed for the specific
purpose of 'dealing with such
fears beforehand.


Explaining the reasons for
asking certain questions, Mr.
Wilson said:
"I know that there are many
non-Bahamian nationals
resident in the area mainly
Haitians and Jamaicans. While
emphasising that I do not take
the view that none of these
Haitians or Jamaicans has a
contribution to make to this
country, I believe that for
socio-cultural reasons we must
always know the percentage of
these people in areas of
concentration.
TRULY TOUGH
"There are some people in
Grant's Town who do not have
the means to support
themselves," he continued.
"For some, life is a challenge
for survival for them, things
are truly tough. We need to
have data on the true existing
economic levels. This would
allow us to develop

PRICE SHOCK: UP


GOES ELECTRICITY


By NICKI KELLY
A SURCHARGE of 0.5 cents per unit or
kilowatt hour is to be added to all Bahamas
Electricity Corporation bills after January 1 to
meet increased fuel costs to the Corporation.
Announcement of the power cost increase -
the second in two months was made in the
House today by Works Minister Simeon Bowe.
He said that as the result of absorbing
increased fuel costs for I I months, BEC has
had to meet additional costs of $2.4 million
above the anticipated amount it expected to
pay for fuel in 1973.

Cabinet shake


in car
By SIDNEY DORSETT
THE DISCOVERY of a
half-nude body behind the
controls of a car pulled from
the waters of Arawak Cay last
night ended the puzzle of the
whereabouts of a young
Peardale banker missing since
Friday.
A report to police by a
woman out fishing that a
dark blue car was at the
bottom of the water at
Arawak Cay resulted in police
ordering the vehicle to be
hauled from the sea.
It was unofficially
confirmed that the body was
that of Deltec Banking
Corporation treasury
department loans supervisor,
Thomas Gregory Thompson,
last seen alive in his 1973
Ford Escort car at Union
Village around 11 p.m.
Friday.
Relatives of the
22-year-old youth, who also
operated the Cloud Nine
clothing store at Hay and
Market Streets, became
concerned and reported him
missing to police when he
failed to return home at the
week-end.
Sources reported the car
was submerged in about 15 to
20 feet of water off the
western section of Arawak
Cay and north of Hampshire
House.
"It was very cold out at
Arawak Cay. A few
volunteers dived into the
water to secure a towing
truck cable to the the car.
The divers were unable to
reach the car so a grapple on
the truck had to be used to
pull the car up, sources
reported.
"The car was pulled up and
his body was behind the
wheel. His arms appeared to
be folded and his head
slumped forward. His pants
and underpants were off, his
shoes, socks, shirt, necktie
and eyeglasses were still on.
The body was stiff."
It was reported that the
discovery of the car took
place around 5 p.m.
yesterday by "an old woman
who always goes across
Arawak Cay to fish. She was
fishing from the dock and
saw the top of the car," a
spectator said.
Police declined to state
whether there was any
suspicion of foul play
involved in the young man's
death pending an autopsy
report, when they were
contacted this morning.
Thompson's trousers and
underwear were found inside
the car, a police spokesman
said.
The young man, who lived
at Peardale with his mother,
Mrs. Rose Thompson, was
described by a co-worker at
D.B.C. as having been "a very
quiet person who was
extremely conscientious
He had been employed at
D.B.C. since February 1968.
He was also the brother of
acting manager of the
Bahamas Monetary
Authority, Anthony
Thompson.

"This surcharge, which is already in
operation in many of the Family Islands by
private franchise holders and in a great many
other countries, will permit the Corporation to
recover some of the additional costs incurred
in purchasing fuel," the Minister pointed out.
He advised the House that at

The press was told:
"We have got to stop

The Doctor's Association
said it was regrettable that The
Guardian should, once again.
"indulge in such irresponsible
journalism which can do no
more than provoke
unwarranted suspicions by the
public and foster the
resentment of an over-worked
and dedicated staff."

five days early for Christmas.
A spokesman at the school
said there have been about a

ten of them at the hostel.
Since the incubation

CRISIS HALTS HEATH

VISIT TO CHINA
LONDON Prime Minister Edward Heath said he has
postponed a visit to China next month because of "the
difficult and indeed grave situation facing the British
nation."
Heath made his announcement in the House of
Commons during a debate on the national economy.
Labour troubles have disrupted fuel supplies and railroad
services and led to a three-day work week to conserve
dwindling energy stocks.
The British leader had been scheduled to visit Peking Jan
4-12 at the invitation of the Chinese government. The visit
was prepared over several months during which British
ministers, including Foreign Secretary Sir Alec
Douglas-Home, visited the Chinese capital.
Heath's visit was aimed at placing the seal on
Anglo-Chinese relations which have greatly improved after
reaching a low in 1967 with a mob burning down the
British Embassy in Peking.
Heath's decision strengthened speculation that he is
planning to call a sudden national election soon to seek
approval for his policies. (AP)

iPt (ribntt


By ETIENNE DUPUCH
ON FRIDAY of last week we reprinted from The Miami Herald
an article that revealed in some detail the terrible conditions
existing in the island of Grenada where Premier Eric Gairy has
followed in the footsteps of Haiti's Papa Doc with a brutal secret
police force recruited from the criminal elements in that island.
I also wrote an article in this column in which I again reviewed
the abuses indulged in by rulers in once free British territories
where British Justice had been the standard and the rule of law
prevailed.
As a result of Gairy's abuses the people of Grenada have bee,.
greatly aroused. The island has been rocked by strikes and
protests in many forms.
A strong delegation went to London to protest the proposal to
take the island into independence in February but England no
longer has ears for the cries of her loyal children.
This is not surprising when one sees the condition in England
today where ... in this time of fuel crisis ... the nation is being
slowly destroyed by the complete irresponsibility of its labour
union.
Britain no longer has a mission ... it has lost momentum ...
today it bears all the signs of a once great nation that is marked
down for self-destruction. This is sad.

In my article on Friday I reprinted for a second time an
observation on Grenada's upcoming independence by Prime
Minister Errol Barrow of Barbados who said that "Premier Gairy
is getting complete freedom of action without any supervising
force. I make a distinction between Gairy's independence and the
independence of the people of Grenada."
A factor that has helped Gairy to get a stranglehold on the
people of Grenada is that he controls all the media of
communication ... both the press and the radio. And his secret
police suppress sidewalk discussions and public speeches.
Some time ago the man who owned the newspaper in that
island got tired of the pressures exercised on freedom of the press
by the Gairy Government. There was no support from the public
for his efforts to preserve press freedom and so he decided to sell
his newspaper and leave the island.
Gairy bought the newspaper and the people did not know how
important a free press had been to them until this public voice
had been throttled by its new owner.
An effort was made to start another newspaper. One of the
men behind this effort visited his sister iq Nassau last year and I
offered to give him some machinery from the old Tribune plant
to help them get started but apparently the effort fell through
because I heard no further from him. On Sunday his sister told
me he died following an operation in October. In any event Gairy
sits firmly astride the press and radio in his island.
But the spirit of revolt is abroad in Grenada today. Opposition
elements have issued Gairy an ultimatum to resign by December
27th or they threaten that all hell will break loose in that island.
This is what finally happens in a country where freedom of
speech is suppressed. The people have no outlet for their
emotions and so they resort to force.
Bahamian people almost lost the voice we have provided for
them in The Tribune.
I was prepared to sell this newspaper and get out last year.
Indeed, I was even ready to close it down and forget about it.
And I would have done just that were it not for a sense of
responsibility to my faithful old staff. I was completely fed up
with the silence of our people.
The government blocked the sale to a responsible newspaper
group in Virginia. They also blocked efforts I made to hand it
over to other responsible local people, who I felt were strong
enough to resist government pressures.
I am now satisfied that they had hoped that they could push
me into a comer where I would sell the paper to them ... or
someone associated with them. We had approaches from certain
elements in the community with whom we would not even
discuss a proposition because ... even though we wanted to get
out ... we still wanted to protect the public's interest as far as
possible.

You people out there who are now reading this article sit
quietly and securely in your drawing rooms and do not realize
that we have in this government today all the elements that
would produce a Gairy ... or a Papa Doc ... overnight.
Let us examine the facts.
Immediately after taking over control of the government in
1967 the black men in the Immigration Department hunted down
black Haitians in the bush with police dogs!
No protest from the public ... or the church. Only The Tribune
spoke out against this inhuman outrage.
A crippled Out Island teacher was mercilessly persecuted by
the Ministry of Education under' then Minister Arthur Hanna
reportedly because he was a friend of a U.B.P. member of the
House.
No protest from the public ... or the church. Only The
Tribune.
On my fiftieth anniversary as the Editor and Publisher of The
Tribune I made a speech at a dinner given in my honour by the
Press of Florida. This speech was completely misquoted in a
speech over ZNS by Prime Minister Pindling and in an editorial in
The Guardian.
I printed the text of my speech in The Tribune and demanded
a retraction by both the Prime Minister and The Guardian. But
silence was the answer.
I was even advised that there was no law in the land that could
require them to correct a false statement!
And, of course, the people and the church were indifferent to
the truth. Complete silence prevailed.
Prime Minister Pindling stated in public speeches on two
occasions that he was building up the police force because it had
been the experience of other territories that trouble followed
independence. He felt he needed a force to protect him from the
Bahamian people when they wake up to the truth of
independence. He said he had no fear of foreign intrusion.


In spite of that bold threat the people followed him into
independence with their eyes wide open ... and with the help of
many ministers of the gospel who carted people to the polls in
their cars to vote for independence.
The facilities of ZNS have been practically closed to the
Opposition and the Rev. Dr. H. W. Brown who dares to speak out
boldly against their tyranny. This supposedly public voice was
used as a propaganda vehicle in the general election last year.
*The Tribune's English editor at Freeoort and his wife were
forced out of Grand Bahama by Immigration and Mr. Hanna
refused to allow us to bring in staff to continue the Grand
Bahama edition of this newspaper. And so we closed it down.
There was not a single squeak from the Bahamian people
or the church. The only protest came from a man in Freeport
who signed his letter "Freeporter". This man knew what the loss
of a newspaper meant to a people because he came from a
Communist-dominated section of Western Europe.
The Nnvember 21st issue of The Montreal Gazette carried a
story about a man and his wife who were held up and attacked by
four armed black men on a beach.
Under the heading "Ugly Incidents Beset White Tourists in the
Bahamas", the story emphasized that this is true "particularly in
the area of Freeport."
The story stated that the man "tried to get the local newspaper

to publish the incident. It said it could 't.'"
The only newspaper in Freeport today is the Freeport News.
Like The Nassau Guardian this newspaper is foreign-owned.
It is a question how far any foreign owned institution can be
free in the Bahamas today.
For example, when the press was threatened with
suppression by a Bill introduced in the House of Assembly in
1969, 1 fought the issue and won it with the backing of the
powerful Inter American Press Association.
The Nassau Guardian supported the government ... and fought
me on this issue!
And the people and the church were silent.
Arthur Hanna stated boldly on the floor of the House that
the government would no longer do business with The Tribune
because it was unfriendly to the government and that he had
arbitrarily handed over all government contracts to the friendly
Guardian without following the long established practice of
calling for tenders.
The Guardian must have realized that this was an attack on
press freedom but it fell' in with the high-handedness. of this
Minister!
The public knows this. The church knows it. But they are
silent.
Turks Island men, whose wives supported the Opposition in
the last election, have been forced to leave the island of Inagua
and their families.
Arthur Foulkes has carried this ball in a column in The Tribune
and on the floor of the Senate. I have supported him in this
column. But the public ... and the church ... they have been
silent.
These are just a few of the outrageous things the government
has done to Bahamian people.
I have not listed the hundred and one abuses levelled at foreign
interests that have resulted in driving investment from the
Bahamas and frightened monied resident tourists from the
community, resulting in the steady collapse of the nation's
economy and widespread unemployment in a country where
overemployment existed only a few years ago.
*********
/But today events are moving fast.
These men are so blinded by power that they are now
persecuting their own grass roots people.
The story of Oswald Bernard in The Tribune on Saturday is an
example of how the tentacles of this monster is spreading out in
an effort to establish control over even the breath and soul of the
Bahamian people.
Backbenchers in the House have been made clearly to
understand that they are not supposed to hold any moral
principles except those laid down for them by the P.L.P.
hierarchy.
None of these outrages are heard over ZNS ... and you will
see by our columns today that when people including the
labour unions want a free voice to air their pain and suffering
under an oppressive government they come running to this
newspaper. And we give them a voice.
Let me tell you something ... if it were not for the battle this
newspaper won for freedom of the Press in 1969 ... this
government would have you people out there by the throat ...
and you wouldn't dare utter even a whisper because the 1969
Bill, to which I referred earlier in this article, was not only
designed to muzzle the press but also to silence any form of free
expression in any public place.
* ** ** ***


You know something ... I'm amused when I recall that George
Thompson, ex-PLP member of the House, charged me with high
treason on the floor of the House and reminded me of what
happens to people who commit high treason.
Now George Thompson is out on his ears. Considered a
renegade by the PLP high priests because he dared to step out of
line only once, The Tribune was here to write the story when he
received the political knife from the gods of power whom his
blindness had helped to create.
As Chairman of the PLP "Honest George" Mackey was
collecting money a short time ago to buy a Rolls Royce as a
present from a grateful people for their Moses (Pindling).
Now he knows that his Moses has his own Ten
Commandments, and the First Commandment is: "Thou shalt
not have any thought beyond those laid down by me and my
Siamese twin Arthur Hanna, for we are jealous of our right to
absolute power."
And now "Honest George" has taken the first step in the hot
sands of freedom where are strewn the whitened bones of those
who transgress this First Commandment of their Moses.
And Edmund Moxey ... he walked in the House with a placard
back and front to protest the budget from which Finance
Minister Arthur Hanna has eliminated any provision for his youth
movement at Jumbey Village. He has been shocked to find that ...
in truth ... his government is not interested in providing
wholesome recreation for the youth of the country.
This silent protest was considered a serious transgression of the
second commandment by the PLP bosses and so Mr. Moxey has
been disciplined.
The Second Commandment must read: "Don't do as I do, do
only as I tell you to do" ... because be it remembered that eight
years ago Mr. Pindling threw the Mace out of the window of the
House of Assembly and it was smashed on the pavement below ...
and Sir Milo Butler, now Governor General of the nation,
followed up his oft-repeated warning that blood would flow in
Bay Street by throwing other articles on the Speaker's desk out
of the window.
This most drastic of all actions taken in the history of protests
in this island was followed by a march of PLP members out of the
House, headed by "Moses" Pindling. and a sit down stnke in the
middle of Bay Street, main thoroughfare of the business section
of the island, blocking traffic for a long time.

Today we are picking up one by one the wrecks of misguided
men who have been crushed on the wheel of a government that
has been restrained from complete dictatorship only by the spirit
of a free press.
Dammit, 'll say it ... The Tribune.

WITH ALL THE CHANGES
and shifts in the business
community these days one
thing that stands out is the
boutique experiment.
If perhaps somewhat
delayed compared to the
European and American
ventures the boutique is
decidedly a part of the local
shopping scene.
With new ones opening and
closing almost every day
Aquarius, which opened three
years ago, stands out as a
successful experiment in
marketing unusual clothes.
And, considering the owner
of Aquarius, Brent Malone,
Artist, it is not surprising that
Aquarius is something very
special.
Aquarius has undergone
many changes no longer does
it cater mainly to the flower
childern for which those of us
long past our flower child days
will doubtlessly appreciate.
From the blue jean and "T"


Aquarius


shirt look, Aquarius is
definitely moving ahead into a
more high fashion look.
The layout of the shop has
also changed. There are now
four changing rooms instead of
two and the counter is now in
the centre facilitating the
increased jewellery display and
providing more wall space for
clothes.
Brent Malone, with the
artist's sensitive eye, explained
the change of emphasis in
with-it dress over the recent
years.
TRAMP LOOK
"The Western tramp look is
definitely a thing of the past
now. Young people are
enjoying more tailored and
designed clothes", he
explained. "Blue jean denim is
still big, but with a tailored


p

look such as high rise cuff
jeans, embroidered patched
jeans and denim and leather
combinations. The world
demand for denim has greatly
increased its price and new
trends have elevated denim
clothes to the peak of high
fashion. In fact, the highest
priced denim is recycled from
old clothes and cut into the
latest designs, especially men's
suits and maxi skirts."
Brent started Aquarius three
years ago "as an experiment in
designing a modern and
different shopping
environment and also as an
experiment in economic
power. So much of the
business community here is
controlled by the elderly, it's
important for young people to
be independent and also gain
economic power on their own
terms. Making Aquarius
happen and be successful has
been an exciting adventure."
Aquarius carries a good
selection of high fashion men's


dress shirts in Liberty prints
and a wide range of denim
western shirts. There are racks
of sweaters, turtle necks, dress
pants and denim jeans.
Aquarius' biggest seller is
definitely the leather and jean
jackets and suits.
T his boutique is a
combination of high fashion,
casual and ethnic clothes. By
far the most unusual were the
recent Mexican embroidered
shirts, dresses and blouses.
"These are amazing pieces".
Brent said. "I have a buyer
who travels to Mexico at least
once a year. Not the usual sort
of buyer either. She carried
these (ponchos) for two
months visiting out of the way
villages and spending hours on
the roadside waiting for
Indians on their way to
market, to select the best
pieces. All are hand selected on
the spot."
"Last year I did a buying
trip to Morocco, this year to
Mexico, and of course, I do

Obviously,, for Brent, buying
is the most exciting part of the
business. And for the
customers of Aquarius, too.
For how many people can say
that their clothes were selected
by an honest-to-goodness
artist?
COLLAGE OF COLOUR
The boutique is a collage of
colours, rich embroidery,
elegant dresses, and jackets:
trays of silver sparkle under
decorative lanterns.
How are the clientele
described? "far out and
foxy, a constant stream of new
faces, a fashion show from an
X-rated Disney set to the music
of Elton John or Ziggy and the
Spiders from Mars."
Norman, manager of
Aquarius Boutique, describes
his work, "It's a combination
of serious straight work and
insane individuality. It's fun,
sure and a merging place for so
many ideas and people. I sold
George Harrison of the Beatles
two hammocks a few weeks
ago. It's a place that attracts
people like that, somewhere
---4 -


where they can relax without
shades or some disguise on",
Be it with stars like George,
leaders like Jesse Jackson or
our own Sister Sarah, the party
is definitely on at Aquarius this
year.
One of the best and most
unusual shops it really is worth
a visit especially for that
special Christmas outfit, dress
or gift. Clothes, silver, incense,
posters, oils they are all part
of the special ingredients that
make Aquarius the biggest and
tastiest smash for this
Christmas season.
Like the song from "Hair"
after which the boutigue is
named, that's where to-day's at
- in the Age of Aquarius.


Making list? Follow Sant's example...
check it twice. Make sure you haven't
forgotten a soul. Then cone In and visit
us for t biggest section of merchan-
dise around. Prices are right

DEAR ABBY: The advice you gave "Letterless," that
poor wife whose husband is away in the service and hardly
ever writes to her, was nothing less than cruel. I am old
enough to be het- mother, and I would have told her to get
rid of the bum!
When she begs him to write because she's worried, his
response is: "If I die, the service will inform you." Abby,
his cruelty is surpassed only by yours. He's not her teen-
aged son, he's her husband, and the father of her children.
She has every right to worry about him, and demand that
he write. And you tell her to write him "cheerful, newsy,
entertaining letters." Why should she? She's at home being
both mother and father to their children, and has far less
time to write than he has. Abby, I do believe your compas-
sion and brains are in your rear end!
DISAPPOINTED IN BUFFALO
DEAR DISAPPOINTED: Sorry, but I still think I'm
right. Your "fight-fire-with-fire" philosophy would be a sure
way to consign marriage to a heap of ashes.


Right not


to write up to her GI husband


DEAR NEEDS: Who cares what the etiquette books
say? Plain, old-fashioned consideration and respect for
one's parents can tell you to give them the more comforta-
ble sleeping accommodations.
DEAR ABBY: My ears have been ringing almost con-
tinuously for a year. I went to a physician. He looked in my
ears, said he couldn't see anything wrong, but maybe I
should consult an ear doctor.
Well, I went to an ear specialist. He looked In my ears,
and even took X-rays, but he couldn't see anything either.
Abby, I know my ears can't be ringing for nothing.
Something must be causing it. I worry all the time over it.
I am tired of having people tell me to forget it, it's only
my imagination. Any suggestions? WORRIED
DEAR WORRIED: See another doctor. This time, an


ear, nose and throat specialist. Worrying about what It
COULD BE is sometimes more serious than what It IS.

danesday, December 19, 1973.


THERE IS PROBABLY no
drink more traditionally linked
with New Year's celebrations
than eggnog. Nog is actually a
very strong English beer but
when the egg came into it and
when the beer was replaced by
rum, nobody seems to know.
Perhaps it will become another
tradition to give a quiet toast
to the creator of this smoothly
intoxicating brew.


Eggnog- mixture is available
in most of tixe upermri.et,
but if yo.i. prefer to start from
the beginning, here are several
delicious -variations.
For a ba nnana-flavoured
eggnog, t=)eat three egg yolks
with two ahld les pions sugar in a
bowl L-inil thick and
light,,..tlAmrcd. In the container
of a tletncde, combine two very
ripe 6anaiies, four ounces light


rum, and two-thirds of a cup of
milk. Blend at high speet until
smooth. Pour this over the egg
yolk mixture and beat well.
Fold in a third of a cup of
heavy cream, lightly whipped,
and three stiffly beaten egg
whites. Chill thoroughly.
Another calls for honey.
Dissolve one and a half
tablespoons of honey in a
teaspoon of warm water and


let cool. In the container of a
-blender, combine an egg yolk,
a quarter cup of light cream, a
quarter cup of shaved ice, two
ounces of light rum, an ounce
of brandy and the honey
mixture. Blend at high speed
for 20 seconds. Dust the
eggnog with ginger.
Here is a recipe for a party
eggnog enough for about 50
four-ounce servings. Beat 12
egg yolks until light. Gradually
beat in one and a half cups of
sugar and beat until thick and
smooth. Turn the mixture into
a chilled punch bowl set in
crushed ice. Add a quart of
milk, a quart of lightly
whipped heavy cream. Blend
and add one and a half quarts
bourbon and a pint of brandy.
Fold in 12 stiffly beaten eggs.
Sprinkle with two tablespoons
of dark rum and dust with
nutmeg.
And for the person who
can't be bothered with the
whip-this and beat-that, here's
a recipe using the eggnog dairy
mixture. It makes 12 servings.
Add 12 onces of light rum to a
quart of dairy eggnog mix and
fold in a cup of whipped
cream. Chill and dust with
nutmeg.
The aftermath of Christmas
and New Year's is inevitably a
pile of leftover turkey meat
and a mess of bones. Please,
don't throw out those bones.
In these days of horrible food
prices, the turkey bones can be
made into stock for soups,
gravies and stews. Put the
bones in a large kittle and add
enough water to cover.
Add a coarsely chopped
onion, a teaspoon thyme, a
teaspoon of tarragon, and any
other herbs which you fancy,
plus salt and pepper. A few
sliced stalks of celery and


sliced carrots can also be
added. Bring to a boil and
simmer for several hours.
Strain. Now, throw out the
bones.
A good soup makes a perfect
lunch with a sandwich on these
cool winter days. For carrot
and leek soup, slice one and a


half pounds carrots and the
white parts of fice leeks. Place
them in a saucepan with several
sprigs of parsley, a bay leaf and
water cover. Cook until the
vegetables are tender.
Drain and work them
through a sieve or put through
a food chopper. Heat six cups
of turkey stock and added the
pureed vegetables, a cup of
heavy cream and three
tablespoons butter.
1Reheat the soup and add a
pinch of nutmeg.
Try potato and cheese soup
again using turkey or chicken
stock. Peel and slice ten small
potatoes and place in a soup
kettle with six cups of stock, a
CUD and a half of grated

cheddar cheese, a medium
sliced onion, and a few drops
of Tabasco or hot sauce.
Bring to a boil and simer
until the potatoes are very
soft. Work the soup through a
sieve or food chopper or puree
in a blender. Bring the soup
back to the boil. Work together
a teaspoon butter and a
teaspoon of flour and add this
a little at a time to the boiling
soup.
Cook over low heat for five
minutes and stir in a cup of
heavy cream and a little salt
and pepper.
Cream of cauliflower soup
also calls for chicken or turkey
stock. Separate a large
cauliflower head into flowerets

and cook them in boiling water
until tender.
Drain and reserve two cups
of the cooking liquid. In a
saucepan, melt a quarter cup of
butter and add three
tablespoons flour. Blend and
cook for several minutes. Addi
four cups of stock and the
cauliflower liquid. Cook until
it bubbles.
Add the cauliflower and
simmer for half and house.
Work through a sieve or
puree in a blender. In a bowl,
mix two egg yolks and a cup of
heavy cream. Stir a little of the
hot soup into the mixture and
very slowly pour the mixture
into the soup stirring
constantly. Reheat the soup

i^LJ Li ^R E .LEE IS


THOSE WHO SAW the
Theatre Workshop's
production of "Butley" over
the last weekend might have
been curious about the
producer of the play and the
director of the Theatre
Workshop, professional
dramatist Cedric Scott.
Nassau is a fabulous place
for the amateur and the
dabblers. Here, anyone with
the slightest claim to talent in
the Arts, with modest gifts for
business of in the professions
not requiring stringent
qualifications, can usually find
a satisfactory outlet.
But what of the professional
in a field were there is precious
little outlet here-a field not at
the top of the professional
totem pole in the Bahamas -
the concert pianist, the
operatic soprano or the painter
whose special forte is
woodcuts, graphics and
print-making?
Perhaps, Cedric Scott has
found the answer to this
painful dilemma. He
contributes what he can to the
cultural life and development
of the Ministry of Education
and Culture and he is also the
Director of the Theatre
Work-shop, an amateur
dramatic group with an
important difference from the
other theatre groups in the
Bahamas.


CEDRIC SCOTT


But Cedric does not stay
home all the time.
When I spoke with him
earlier in the week he told me
that he is soon to go to the
University of Miami to play the
part of Othello and also to
lecture to a drama class at the
University for five months.
Mick Bancroft (who's
Butley in the play of the same
title was of a professional
standard although Mick is not a
professional actor) will take
over the Work-shop in Cedric's
absence.
"One can fall into a rut in
Nassau as a big fish in a small
pond," Cedric said. "I prefer to
be a small fish in a big pond."

Recognition or respect, or
rather the lack of it, "wouldn't
bother me" he said "if there
was an outlet for one's art or
craft. There isn't even that."
So, Cedric divides his time
between cultivating the
dramatic talents of his fellow
Bahamians and working
towards the establishment of
such an outlet, and fulfilling
his own creative abilities by
practising his art or craft on
foreign shores.
Cedric graduated from the
American Academy of
Dramatic Arts and received his
Masters of Fine Arts (stage, TV
and directing) at the University
of Georgia
He has directed stage
productions in the West Indies,
England and the United' States,
directed TV in the United
States and acted in numerous
plays in the United States and
England (both on the stage and
in the TV medium and in
radio). In the movies he was a
lead singer in Columbia
Pictures' "Flames of the
Island," an extra in
"Thunderball" and Sidney
Poitier's personal assistant for
"A Warm December."
But Cedric does come home.
In his role as Drama Officer
in the Ministry of Education
and Culture he is setting up a
programme to introduce drama
into the schools this January.
Among the approximate nine
qualified drama teachers in the
Bahamas three are being moved
into one school at which the
drama department will serve as
a pilot project. (Lucky children
who happen to attend this
particular school whichever
one it is!)
As one might imagine Cedric
has far reaching ambitions for
this project but says that to
begin with there will probably
be an emphasis on
Bahamian/Caribbean
orientated drama ( a medium
in which the children will feel
at home) until they are better
equipped.
Now, to the Theatre
Work-shop. How does this
differs in approach, in
philosophy and in actual
production from the other
drama groups in the Bahamas?
"We have approached ours
on a strictly professional
basis," Cedric said. Classes are
held twice a week for which
memnber/students pay a small
fee so the main incentive of
members is developing their


acting talents. After each
production the group gets
together to criticise each other.
This appears quite radically
different to the approach of
the other theatre groups.
Last August I talked with
Fitz Stubbs, director and
producer of the University
Players (who incidentally put
on a very successful production
of 'They Raisin the Flag Now,
Mama" which ran concurrently
with the Workshop's
"Butley").
At this time Fritz explained
to me that a drama group is as
much a social group and the tie
that binds is as much, if not
more, social than professional..
He went on further to say that
the drama group provides a
sympathetic home for people
from similar backgrounds with
similar interests and problems
and as such serves an important
function apart from staging
productions.
This seems a complete
antithesis to the Work-shop
approach.
To quote Cedric: "The aim
of the Theatre Workshop
Company is to explore the
nature of theatre. We feel that
exploring this field does not
mean going on in the same
way, for that would mean
being locked into an eternal
adolescence. We want to
discover, with the help and
support of our audience, what
theatre really is. as to know
what it is, is to know what it
could be."
This is not to say that the
members of the Workshop
group are an anti-social group.
Quite naturally when people
are bound together by a
common interest a social unit
will automatically form. This,
however, is a by-product rather
than what holds the group
together.
Maybe, from his
professionally orientated
group, who are experimenting
with serious drama productions
rather than merely catering to
a common denominator of
current tastes will come to the
seed of professional theatre in
the Bahamas.

From Pae 11
December 8.
The Pioneers had
participated in the 39th and
40th Classics Parade but this
performance far exceeded the
former two. The Bahamas
Band was very well received by
Bahamian and American
students, the American people
and the many Bahamians who
went to Miami for the
occasion.
The Miami newspapers
carried photographs and news
items of the Bahamas Pioneer
Drum and Bugle Corps to the
effect that they were there
"shaking the Dilly Tree."
"The members of the
Pioneers were proud to


represent the Bahamas and are
willing to serve the country at
anytime and in any capacity,"
said Mr. Ford.
And they gratefully
acknowledge the assistance
received from Bahamian
businesses, citizens and the
Ministry of Tourism in helping
to finance their trip.
Engaged to be married are
Cheryl hIngid Cordelia Bastian,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Harcourt Bastian and Anthony
Tyrone Weech son of Mr. and
Mrs. Bernard Weech.
The wedding is to take place

on Saturday, January 5 at 9

first set 7-5, in yesterday's
semi-finals.
Gerualitis shouted: "What's
going on, you might as well

Gerualitis then appealed to
the linesman -nnd the umpire to
have the point replayed, while
Mottram roared with laughter

Gerualitis replied by seizing

Although some of the best
tennis of the tourney was seen
during the match, it was
marred by two unfortunate
incidents.
At the end of the fifth game
of the first set with Gerualitis
3-2 ahead, Mottram refused to
continue playing because there
was no water available.
The umpire, Ernest West.
ruled that play must be
continuous but Mottram sat
unperturbed from 6 minutes
until the water arrived while
the excitable Gerualitis became
angry.
Five games later the
eccentrice Mottram clinched
the set with a blatant foot fault
and when Gerualitis


complained Mattram just
laughed.
The incident clearly upset
Gerualitis and Mottram played
brilliantly to clinch the second
set 6-3.
At the end of the match the
players did not shake hands.
In the semi-finals of the
doubles, Gene Scott and
Gerualitis defeated Bill Tym

I A RD-HITTING golden

Allan Bullard takes on Richard
Major in a return match Friday
at the Nassau Stadium when

Termed by national coach
Bert Perry as the young Bob
Foster, Bullard during this
year's golden glove tournament
in Freeport set a new record
when he stopped his opponent
eight seconds in the first
round.


"You don't have to tell him
anything twice," Perry said.
"As far as discipline is
concerned. I think he and
Nathaniel Knowles are the two
most outstanding."
Knowles who lost a close
decision to Gary Davis clashes
in a return match that should
prove exciting.
In other bouts, Nathaniel

to fight

Gypsy
JUNIOR welterweight
champ Gypsy Mike Whymns
take on the sensational junior
middleweight Kid Barr in a ten
round main event Saturday at
the Birdland Arena in a
pre-Christmas all-Bahamian
boxing show.
Barr, coming in at 151
pounds, three pounds heavier
than Whymns, is looking
forward to a return match with
John Pinney, of Orlando,
Florida, to whom he dropped a
decision.
Barr came back to prove his
true form by stopping Miami's
Roscoe Bell in the second
round of their scheduled ten
rounder at the Birdland. Barr
felt that his bout with Pinney
gave him the equal to six
months of actual training.
The up and coming
middleweight is fully aware of
Whymns' boxing and punching
ability but feels that his recent
experience will prove that he is
the better.
Whymns, also the
lightweight champ, has reached
the stage where he has a
problem with his weight.
Having grown a lot since he
won the title some years ago,
Whymns soon will have to
decide whether to relinquish
his crowns.
His bout with Barr should
prove whether he is ready for
the heavier division.

--High hopes for

national squad
By GLADSTONE THURSTON


CAGE veteran Steve Pinder
has high hopes for the
performance of the Bahamas
national team when tliey meet
Luxembourg in a return match
next week. "I think with the
team we have, we can stand
against any competition from
Luxembourg."
Pinder is one of seven
coaches chosen to accompany
the 12-member national team.
He feels that the team,
under the direction of head
coach Vince Ferguson is well
disciplined and if they follow
instructions they must win.
Pinder is satisfied that the team
was properly trained and the
players chosen are the best of
both leagues.
Becks Cougars coach Fred
"Papa" Smith also picked
for the national side agrees
that the present team is one of
the best that ever represented
the Bahamas. He played in the
national teams that toured
Miami during the 1960s.
"The guys now have much
more experience," he said,
explaining that college
basketball did a lot to build
their momentum. In previous
tournaments he felt that their
loss was due to lack of
rebounding power.
"But this year we have some
guys who should get us the
ball," He was referring to
Kentucky Colonels' centre


Sterling Quant, Strachan't
Auto's centre Jerome Barner
and Lionel Evans and the
Classic Pros forward Elisht
McSweeney.
Barney last season captured
a total of 132 rebounds .ar&
scored 173 points. In this, his-
second season in B.A.BA.-
action, he has already snatched-
151 rebounds, scored 230'
points and gave 30 assists.
Team-mate Evans is also on,


the road to doubling his last
season's statistics having so far
scored 108 points to go along
with his 159 rebounds. So far,
he has handled 32 assists.
Quant, the dominant factor
in the Colonels' lineup will
once again be making,. "
second appearance on the
National team. In his robMi
year, Quant scored a record
768 points, captured Z-6 -
rebounds and gave a total'of-
122 assists.
Since then he has been 1
steady and although he haunot
played all the games so far'dtis
season, he has to his credit
147 rebounds, 171 pointsaitc:
36 assists.
Coming from the Cougars
and termed by many as the
best guard in the B.A.B.A is
all-rounder Peter Brown.
"Anytime you have a guy who
can give you 20 points and 10
assists per game, you can't ask
for more," said coach Smith.
