work of The Sir Victor Sassoon
(Bahamas) Heart Foundation.
The multi-million dollar
surgical centre is the most
modern cardiovascular
treatment facility in the
southeastern part of the United
States.
The Heart Foundation's
affiliation with St. Francis
Hospital was effected two
years ago by Dr. James R.
Jude, a prominent
cardiovascular surgeon in the
Miami area and a trustee of the
Sir Victor Sassoon (Bahamas)
Heart Foundation.
Up until the time of the
dedication of the
Cardiovascular Centre at St.
Francis most of the major
heart operations underwritten
by the Foundation were done
at Jackson Memorial Hospital.
Jackson Memorial is a part of
the University of Miami School
of Medicine to which the Heart
Foundation is also affiliated.
The financial benefits to the
Heart Foundation through its
affiliation with St. Francis
Hospital are considerable.
Through the efforts of Dr. Jude
the cost of operations to the
Foundation have been reduced
as much as 40% in some cases.
Surgical fees, laboratory costs,
hospital costs and other
medical costs are kept to a
minimum without sacrificing
any needed medical services to
the patient.
The cooperation of the
medical and administrative
staffs is very important in
helping the Foundation to
nn.it the costs of these
operations for Bahamians.
Another financial benefit is
that donations made to the
Sassoon Heart Fund at St.
Francis Hospital are tax
deductible for U.S. citizens.
This same tax deductible status
also applies to the Sassoon
Heart Fund at the University
of Miami School of Medicine at
Jackson Memorial Hospital.
The scientific dedication of
the Cardiovascular Centre was
attended by a number of
prominent heart specialists and
surgeons. Principal speaker at
the dedication was Dr. Den ton
Arthur Cooley of Houston,
Texas. Dr. Cooley is the
Surgeon-in-Chief and founder
of the Texas Heart Institute
and is world famous for his
work in heart transplants and
more recently his dedication
towards perfecting an artificial
heart. He is a member of most
major surgical societies in the
world and has been honoured
with many distinguished
international awards.
Lady Sassoon, chairman of
the Sir Victor Sassoon
(Bahamas) Heart Foundation
was an invited guest to the
dedication, which was also
attended by Mary Kelly, public
relations director for the
Foundation.

carted away a steel safe later
discovered undamaged at the

from a tray inside the
manager's office.
A spokesman at the Produce
Exchange Thursday said that
the theft and removal of the
safe containing business
documents was found at 7:30
yesterday morning.
He said that had the thief
been able to damage the safe's
lock, nothing worthwhile
would have been found inside
as the majority of their
business is earned out with
cheques and no amont of
money is ever kept inside the
building which has been
burgled in the past, along with
the produce exchange branch
at Robinson Road.
Entry was made by
removing some of the metal
louvers from a window at the
rear of the building After
getting inside, a trolley was
used to haul the safe through
the back exit which was found
opened at 7:30 this morning.
The safe, about three feet
high. was discovered
undamaged in a clump of
bushes behind the building
The trolley had been dumped
overboard and had to be pulled

In addition, there were guards

immigration ordered five of his
employees to leave the country.
He went first to Managua, Nicaragua,
where he again took over the top floor of
a major hotel. He abandoned that
hideaway, however, after the disastrous
Managua earthquake early this year, and
moved to London, where he had
remained until Wednesday.

death of a young Deltec
Banking Corporation
treasury department loans
supervisor discovered dead
behind the controls of a car
in the waters off Arawak
Cay Tuesday evening.
Police authorities said
today they are continuing
investigations into the death
of Thomas Gregory
Thompson, 22, and that
"foul play has not been
ruled out" at this stage.
They are attempting to
establish how the car got
into the water, a Criminal
Investigation Department
officer said.
Sources disclosed that
$50 was found inside the
pocket of a pair of trousers
that was in the front of the
car along with an apple wine
bottle.
There was no evidence of
injury on the body, it was
reported. Drowning was
found to be the cause of
Thompson's death in a
postmortem examination
performed Wednesday.
The 22-year-old youth,
who lived at Peardale with
his mother, Mrs. Rose
Thompson also operated the
Cloud Nine clothing store at
the corner of Hay and
Market Streets.
A search by police and
relatives attempting to
locate him and his car ended
on the fifth day, Tuesday,
when 35-year-old Merle
Teresa Bullard of Dean
Street reported seeing a
dark-blue car in the water
south-west of Arawak Cay
behind Hampshire House.
He was last seen alive
with friends at Union
Village around II p.m. last
Friday. His car, with two
men and a woman inside,
had been spotted around
11:30 p.m. on Shirley
Street, relatives reported.

Mr. Pindling immediately

some of those standing about
and went upstairs to the
Chamber.
Seconds before his arrival
Transport Minister Darrel Rolle
made his appearance. Seconds
afterwards I)eputy Prime

By 3 30 p mi. the Ministers
were all in place and the House
was able to resume business.
IThe I tribune reported
Wednesday\ that the Prime
Minister intended to make a

It is now understood that

Prime Minister.
It is worth remembering that
Deputy Prime Minister Arthur
Ilanna previously had
responsibility for the
all-important immigration
portfolio until his transfer to
Finance.
If Mr. Rolle does take over
these two departments, he will
undoubtedly be one of the
most important men next to
the Prime Minister.
All of which leads one to
wonder about the future of
Deputy Prime Minister Ilanna,
whose continued influence has
always been something of a
mystery.
Mr. Pindling has been
singularly quiet about officially
confirming the new Cabinet
changes although everyone
knows they have been made
and are likely to become
effective in the new year.
The surprise appointment is
that of Mr. George Smith to
replace Mr. Rolle at Transport.
This has come shortly after Mr.
Smith resigned as Mr.
Pindling's parliamentary
secretary. It is no secret the
resignation came because of
bad relations between the two.
None of the government
members are particularly
happy with Mr. Smith's
appointment, principally
because a number of them
thought they were better
qualified for the job.
Another interesting role
reversal is that of Mr. Francis
and Bahamas Development
Corporation chairman Alfred
Maycock. Mr. Francis is now to
take over as chairman and Mr.
Maycock will succeed him as
Minister.
The two men, however, are
said to be on good terms. Both
are familiar with the Ministry
and no administrative problems
are likely to develop.
Mr. Francis resigned his
Ministerial position after
making his outspoken
anti-gambling stand in the
House last week.
Although Cabinet shuffles are
not an unusual occurrence, this
most recent one smacks more
of personal expediency than
the national interest.

Maynard accuses ex-PLP


member of victimization


TOURISM MINISTER
Clement Maynard yesterday
accused a former Progressive
Liberal Party member, now
associated with the Free
National Movement, of
victimizing Turks Islanders at
Grand Bahama.
Mr. Maynard levelled the
charges during yesterday
morning's 1974 Budget debate
and was provoked by remarks
made by Opposition Leader
Kendal Isaacs. But Mr.
Maynard never named the
person accused.
Mr. Isaacs, in his opening
remarks, accused the
government of stifling the
economy by victimizing its
political opponents.


"If there were any people
who discriminated against
Turks Islanders it would have
to be those who left the PLP,"
Mr. Maynard asserted.
He suggested that Mr. Isaacs
ask his colleagues who it was
who went to Grand Bahama
and saw Wallace Groves, and
who it was who had a contract
taken away and given to
someone else.
Mr. Maynard said this
individual should be accused of
taking bread out the mouths of
babes.
-He went further. and
blamed the FNM for burning
and and maiming in the last
election.
''Talking about


discrimination 1 would like to
remind the member that if the
FNM would execute its own
member they will eliminate
everyone in the country who is
opposed to them," he declared.
Recalling an earlier House
debate on youth and the
problems of drugs and alcohol,
Mr. Maynard bluntly accused
the FNM of "freely supplying
marijuana to the young
people" in his constituency.
And before the present
Leader's time, he continued,
"the FNM advocated legalising
marijuana (a reference to
remarks in the House by Mr,
Norman Solomon St. George
and Dunmore.


tel floors sealed off


Staff position at best


THE STAFF position at the
Princess Margaret Hospital is
better today than ever before
in the history of the hospital,
Health Minister A. Loftus
Roker declared yesterday in his
continuing fight against adverse
publicity on health facilities.
Further, he said in more
general vein, "never in the
history of these islands have
the Bahamian people had
better medical facilities


provided for them by their
Government."
He said the hospital's
medic.' staff was now almost
up to the optimum level, and
there is "no problem" in
recruiting whatever additional
doctors are necessary.
He added that by mid-1974
"all the Family Islands would
be served by medical officers
stationed somewhere in those


islands, with the exception of
Ragged Island, a couple of the
Exuma Cays and NMore'1
'island."
However, he revealed tiai
"there is a shortage of nurses ;,
the hospital." even though the
nursing staff has risen tiv .i
407 in 1966 to 667 today.
"My Ministry is taking ali
steps possible to improve tt1
nursing situation," he said


and he asked for
commitment trom the
Minister to maintain the ratcs
"substantially below" thos<.e
New Providence until the
standards of service are equal.
Mr, Rolle told the lliust
that a monthly rental of $5.7)
for telephones and 86 cents for
extensions for both
commercial and domestic
subscribers in the out islands
took effect from Oberober 1.
"In the case of HIarbout
Island this does not result in an
increase," the Minister said.
He pointed out that when
the Bahamas Telecommunica.
tions Corporation acquired the
Spanish Wells telephone systern
in 1971 the domestic rates
were $4 for a telephone and S2
for extensions, and commercial
rates were $6 per telephone
and $2 per extension.
"Since the system operates
by means of a manual
exchange," the Minister said,
these rates were standardised
to provide for a monthly rental
of $5.71 for business and
residential telephones and 86
cents for extensions.
"In both cases," he added,
"the rates are substantially
below New Providence."
Mr. Rolle also said "an
automatic telephone exchange
is presently in course of
construction at Harbour Island
with an anticipated in-service
date during the second quarter
of 1974.
"Plans for the introduction
of automatic equipment into
Spanish Wells have yet to be
considered."

-'SET UP

PUBLIC

BODY

TO RUN

HOSPITAL'
OPPOSITION leader Kcendti
Isaacs recommend c
Wednesday that a pubh,.
corporation should be create l
to operate the hospital with
the Minister being responsible
only for policy and direction.
Mr. Isaacs said it was ithe
Opposition's view that the
hospital should be
disestablished and that it not
be run directly from the
Ministry of Health.
In advocating a public
corporation to manage the
hospital, Mr. Isaacs suggested
that an efficient board
management be named
similar to BEC and Ba felCo
comprised of knowledgeable
and dedicated Bahamians. wvi
would be responsihl
running the hospital.
"We feel that if this w
done there would be great
efficiency at the hospital -,.
that it would offer griei'.r
attraction to qualified men a; .i
women to work iin tflj
hospital."
At the same time, lie added,
there would be an absence o!
direct control and interference
by the Minister.
Mr. Isaacs also felt there
should be more clinics in the
outlying areas of miuw
Providence and in thr Family
Islands. Such decentralization
would take the pressure off ihe
main hospital, he said. and
make for greater efficiency.

HOLSTUN Skylab 3's
astronauts touay began their
smith w ek in space and flight
controllers report they're
working at peak efficiency
after some early rough spots.
Gerald Carr, William Pogue
and Edward Gibson had a
packed experiment schedule
on the 36th day of their
planned 84-day space voyage.
Flight director Phil Shaffer
told newsmen: "They're
working right on the time
line. I'm pleased with them."
During the first few
weeks of the flight, the
astronauts often fell behind
schedule and made minor
mistakes in trying to catch
up. They complained often
about heavy work schedules
and tight timetables.
Some officials were
concerned that the crew was
not as effective or as
enthusiastic as earlier Skylab
astronauts. But after
lengthy discussions with the
spacemen, they determined
their working patterns were
different as they acclimated
themselves to the weightless
world. Analysis showed the
schdeule overcrowded, and it
was adjusted accordinglv.

CONGRESS hoped to
complete action on an
emergency energy bill today,
then recess one month.
If the bill being considered
becomes law, the proposal for
a ten-gallon limit on gasoline
sales could become
mandatory and President
Nixon would have the
authority to impose a
ten-gallon per week limit on
motorists.


ACTION was expected
today in the House and
Senate on social security
S legislation that would raise
the average retired person's
- paynenit by $20 per month.
The boost from $161 to
$181i would be financed by a
tax increase.

LONDON Leaders of militant
miners have rejected a government
appeal to call off a go-slow campaign
largely causing Britain's energy crisis
and threatening industrial chaos.
But they said they would meet
again with the state-owned National
Coal Board today for another attempt
to settle the dispute over their
Demands for more money.
The talks between the mine leaders
and Employment Secretary William
Whitlaw broke down during a bomb
alert in Whitelaw's ministry. They
were evacuated from the building and


continued their talks in a nearby
Italian restaurant.
The Ministry was cleared when
security men spotted an empty car
standing in a no-parking zone beneath
the window of Whitelaw's office.
Police said it contained no explosives.
London is jumpy about bombs
because of a new terrorist campaign
blamed on Irish extremists. Whitelaw
could be a target because he was
Britain's administrator in Northern
Ireland until last month and the
architect of peace 'moves which the
guerillas oppose.


Sculptors



in cellar



may be


assassins


MADRID A Madrid
newspaper said today two
Spanish-speaking young men
posing as sculptors are
believed to be the assassins of
Premier Luis Carrero Blanco.
The newspaper Ya quoting
police sources, said the two
were part of-a Commando unit
trained outside Spain with
affiliation "to one of the most
extremist groups in Spain."
Ya said the group "has been
noted in recent months for
violent type actions."
The two young men, dressed
in overalls and believed by
neighbours to be repairmen, set
off the blast under the street
that blew apart the premier's
car by using a red mark on a
church wall as a guide when to
detonate the blast.
The 70-year-old premier, his
bodyguard and his chauffeur
were killed yesterday when
blast under Claudio Coello
Street blew apart his official
car as he was en route to work.
Ya said the two men, posing
as sculptors, rented a cellar on
Claudio Coello Street about
one and half months ago. It
said the two apparently were
able to drill a tunnel under the


street without
suspicion because
thought it was part
works programme.

Cables ran from the satchel

GIM 1 VA The
co-chairmen of the Middle
East peace conference in

attitudes today at the
opening session.
Soviet Foreign Minister
Andrei Gronmyko accused
Israel of creating an
intolerable situation in the
region and warned that tihe
Arabs still have the full
support of Russia.
American Secretary of
State Henry Kissinger called
on Arabs and Israelis to
create new hope for the
future by breaking what he
called the shackles of the
past.
The historic conference
first in Israel's history -was
televised to all of western
Europe and much of the
Middle East.
It opened 40 minutes late
and the morning session
lasted 85 minutes.
Gromnovko said war inl
the Middle East could flare
up again at any time.
And Kissinger said lie

would meet despair and
deadlock.
Then Egypt's Foreign
Minister pointed out one of
those deadlocks by insisting
that Israel pull back from all
territory occupied in the

Hijack terror


group threaten


more attacks
BEIRUT A communique published in a Beirut newspaper
today said the terrorist organization that carried out the firebomb
attack and hijacking in Rome this week would strike again at


American interests until the Uni
same support it gives Israel.
l'he communique also
threatened attacks on all
European countries with
Palestinian guerillas in their
ails unless the captives are
freed by the end of the month.
The statement in the
newspaper An Nahar was the
first purporting to come from
an organization responsible for
the attack Monday, in which
the terrorists killed 32 people.
It was signed "The Palestinian
People," but is was not clear
whether this was the name of
the terrorist group.
The five terrorists who
firebombed a Pan American
jetliner and then hijacked a
Lufthansa jet surrendered in
Kuwait, and government
spokesmen there say they have
refused to disclose their names
or the identity of their group.
The communique said the
attack on the American airliner
was called Operation Deversoir
because "the American arms
airlift (to Israel during the
October war) was responsible
for Israel's occupation of more
than 1,000 square kilometers
in Deversoir, on the west bank
of the Suez canal."
It said the attack was made
at the Rome airport because it
was used by the U.S. planes
flying arms to Israel.
The statement continued:
'.\AII.1 III interests anywhere
and any time will remain
targets for our crushing blows
until the U.S. government
adopts an even-handed policy
in the Arab-Israeli conflict."
The threat to the European
governments said: "This is a
final ultimatum to all
I uropean countries that host
in their prisons Palestinian
commandos.
"These countries are called
upon to release the imprisoned
guerillas by the end of this
month. Otherwise the interests
and institutions of these
countries all will become
targets for the blows of our
revolutionary heroes."
The communique said the
Rome attack was carried out
by suicide squads named the
Abu Ali Ayad squad and Abdul
Moneim Riyad squad.
Ayad was a Palestinian
guerilla leader who died during
the civil war in Jordan in 1971
and Riyad was an Egyptian
chief of staff killed in action
on the Suez canal after the
1967 Arab-Israeli war. (AP)

The victim was identified by
eyewitnesses who saw his car

Watergate

buzz:

lamp not

to blame
WASHINGTON Rose
Mary Wood's typewriter and
lamp are no longer prime
suspects in the case of the
18-minute Watergate hum.
But the technical experts
who took the blame off her
typewriter and lamp said little
in their preliminary report that
might show Miss Woods was
not involved in the obliteration
of a portion of one of the
subpoenaed Watergate tapes.
U.S. District judge John J.
Sirica announced that technical
experts who had examined the
tape of a June 20, 1972
conversation between the
President and A. R. Haldeman
had reported that neither the
lamp nor typewriter was "a
likely cause of the 18-minute
buzz."
-The experts told the judge
there was one other electronic
suspect on their list the tape
recorder itself.
"Yet to be confirmed by
further study are some
indications that the other
recorder could have produced
the buzz," Sirica said in a
statement read in open court.
A rereading of Miss Woods'
testimony at a hearing called
by Sirica showed that the
president's secretary was more
willing to admit possible
error when she began testifying
than she was later in the day.
It was during thp afternnon
session on Nov. 26 that Miss
Woods told about her accident
while listening to the June 20
tape.
".nd there was something
about tourism," she recalled.
"I don't know whether some
governor had called and asked.
I don't remember. And that is
the last I heard on that tape."

EDITORIAL

Passing the Buck


By ETIENNE DUPUCH
IN THIS column on Monday I printed a letter I had received
from the chairman of the Board of one of the largest food chain
stores in the U.S.
This man is in close touch with the world's food situation ...
and especially with conditions in the U.S. He fears that the
Bahamas may not be alive to the problems now facing the world
and he felt that I should alert them to the situation.
He was particularly concerned because not one of the 80
scholarships given to the Bahamas by the Bahamas Supermarkets
Foundation has been taken up for the study of agriculture.

I was talking with a senior government official after this article
appeared and he said that the Ministry of Agriculture and
Fisheries was now trying to meet this emergency. At least ... so he
thought.
He was referring to the fisheries project being conducted under
the auspices of the United Nations ... and the farming
experiments being carried out at Andros Island with ten million
dollars given to the Bahamas government by the United States
government for this purpose.

I don't know whether the government thinks that there will be
an export market for any surpluses it may produce at Andros.
In the past farming in the Bahamas has been restricted by
conditions for which there has been no remedy.
First and foremost, the paucity of the soil and shortage of
fresh water supplies have made farming as a commercial venture
both hazardous and uneconomic.
Uneconomic because the land is not ploughable ... and so
planting must be slow and costly in labour. And hazardous
because a farmer must depend entirely on rainfall for irrigation.
Another great drawback has been a market. The only two
possible markets in the Bahamas are in Nassau and Freeport ...
and they are very limited.
In spite of the paucity of the soil and the scarcity of fresh
water, the islands can produce such items as tomatoes and onions
in sufficient quantity to supply the American market. But this
market has been closed to our products, both by import taxes
and by the cost of production and shipment of the goods to the
market.

Whether the shortages in the world will be so great that
demand will off-set these handicaps to commercial farming in the
Bahamas, remains to be seen.
But even so the government is once again exhibiting its lack of
experience if it is depending on the products of these two
enterprises on land and sea to feed a hungry people who, because
the economy has been destroyed by government stupidity, have
no way of earning money..
*** **** **
I was at the Produce Exchange when the last U.N. vessel
brought in a large catch of fish from the edge of the ocean.
A long line of people had queued up to buy the cargo.
These people had money with which to pay for the fish. Up to
the present time most of our people still have enough money to
buy food for their tables.
But the time has now come when the government has to forget
about low-cost housing schemes ... and think about food that
people will need money to buy ... even though it might be locally
produced.
As things are going in the country today the government must
plan for the time when our people may not have money with
which to buy fish caught by a U.N. team or the products of a
government-operated farm at Andros.
** ** =
As readers of this column know, my wife and I conducted a
successful farm at Camperdown during the last war. It was a
completely self-contained unit that freed us from the need to go
to the food shops for supplies. We had enough to give some to
our friends nad sell the surplus to the shops.
This is the ideal kind of domestic farming for the Bahamas in
which people are taught to take care of the one primary need of
families who have the good fortune to live in this moderate
climate.
I might tell you that when we launched our farm I had had no
experience with this kind of undertaking. My wife at least knew
how to milk a cow. She milked the cows until our two elder
boys were big enough to do this work.
But we worked hard at it ... and we learned as we went along.
I don't pretend to be an authority on farming. Far from it. But
I know enough about it to be able to produce a profitable crop.
And that is all anyone needs to know in domestic farming in
these islands.

I came home for the month of December. I had planned to
arrive just before Christmas but when I realized how urgent the
food situation might become I came home on November 30th in
the hope that I might be able to reactivate our farm to help
relieve a possible food shortage that will probably become acute
in 1974 ... not in 1975 as forecast by two economists who wrote
a book over six years ago predicting this crisis.
But, as I told you in my previous article, I gave up the idea
because government's shortsighted immigration policy makes my
proposed undertaking impossible.
And so I will leave the island again ... grieving for you people
who will suffer because of the inexperience, stupidity, greed and
viciousness of a government that a majority of the people chose
to place in the seat of power seven years ago.

But let me give the representatives of districts in the Out
Islands one small piece of parting advice


The time has come when you men should be honest with your
people.
It is time you told them that the government they elected to
the House of Assembly has been a complete and abysmal failure.
It is time that you advised your people to start cultivating
their lands again. Also encourage them to go fishing again in their
small dinghies to help provide food for their families.
I don't know what advice to give the people who live in
congested communities in New Providence with no land to
cultivate ... and no fish to catch.
Anyway, I pass on this little bit of advice for anyone who has
land to cultivate. Get back to the land. It's your only reliable
asset. You can take my advice or leave it. That's your business.

It's interesting how a man's mind travels and the odd sort of

WHO IS THE PRIME MINISTER?


EDITOR, The Tribune:
Kindly allow me space in
your column to point out to
this country how the P.L.P.
government is killing it slowly.
Recently in the House of
Assembly, the Minister of
Finance announced that after
1976 the government of this
country will be taking over the
casinos.
It is this same man who
killed the country through his
Immigration policy. He
handled this in an arrogant and
stupid way, so foolishly until
the investors lost all confidence
in this government. This was
done with Mr. Pindling's
blessings. He could not say that
he objected to the way in
which this policy had been
carried out because he never
said a word against it.
Now the only thing left in
the line of jobs for the masses
is the tourist industry. The
Minister of Finance wants to
kill that. Too bad if the
Bahamian people cannot see
what I am talking about. I am


pointing out this matter to you
so that you can take a close
look at the situation and ask
ourselves a few questions like
the following:-
(1) Why would this
government want to take over
the casinos? Are not they
getting enough out of it?
(2) Will it run the casinos
the way these government
offices are being run?
(3) Where and when did
this government acquire
knowledge of casinos?
(4) What will the
proprietors of the hotels
connected with the casinos do
if after the take-over by
government they continue to
lose money?
(5) -- Should they decide to
close the hotels down, where
would the Minister of Finance
and the Prime Minister find
work for the people?
(6) Who is the Prime
Minister, Hanna or Pindling? It
is high time for the people of
this country to voice their
opinions about the


mismanagement of the affairs
of this country by this
government. I for one am going
to do so.
I could think of a number of
more important things than
having to fool with the
Casinos: for examples the
hospital extension that has
been started for a number of
years. complete that. The
houses in Yellow Elder Garden,
complete them. The
construction boom that used
to he, get that going. Try and
restore the investors
confidence, not break it down
further.
It is high time for the
backbenchers and the
oprp'itl .. n members of the
House of Assembly to oppose
this matter so vigorously that
the Government be made to,
back down and apologise for
such a foolish decision.
I do not expect any better
of Mr. Ilanna, after seeing the
way in which he handled the
immigration policy, but 1
thought Mr. Pindling would


IC''


association of ideas that creep across his vision.
While writing this article I thought of a small thing I noticed
during my visit to Nassau.
Shops now give change in American notes. They seem to place
a higher value on the Bahamian dollar.
I asked a friend of mine the reason and he explained that there
is a small premium advantage on deposits in banks for Bahamian
currency over the American dollar.
U.S. and Bahamian currencies are supposed to be on a par ...
but there still seems to be a small fractional advantage in having
the Bahamian "buck".
And I thought ... this is a case of "passing the buck".
There'll be a lot of "passing the buck" if the time comes when
the government succeeds in producing food on its farm at Andros
... and the people have no money with which to buy this food.
*** *** ****
Anyway, the rate at which the whvble situation is deteriorating
in the nation at the present time, I have a feeling that some
members of the government might fly the coop long before the
present Parliament has run its full course.
I shouldn't think that some of these men will experience any
difficulty in being able to live abroad after seven years of
opportunity.

FOOTNOTE TO HISTORY: There is just one small thing 1 want
to get straight today.
For a long time now some people have been calling me a
prophet. Now everywhere I go I am hailed as a prophet.
I am NOT a prophet.
It is true that an amazingly large number of things 1 have
forecast, both on the local and international stage, have turned
out to be correct, but I base my decisions entirely on knowledge
gained from reading or personal experience, plus ordinary
common sense.
Today I can write about farming because I have done it. I have
laboured in the land with my own hands.
It served the purpose of politicians and their vassals to turn the
people away from my advice when I urged them to cultivate their
land during the last war.
Although I was farming at the time myself the politicians used
a dirty little newspaper that served as their mouthpiece to make
people believe I was trying to belittle them. They pictured
farming as a menial occupation.
Today the situation is different. I am convinced that our
people must produce as much food as possible on their own land
if they want to survive.
If I have been correct in my forecasts it is because I try to find
the truth. No one ever completely finds the truth but I try to get
as near to it as possible.
You see ...
I don't want anything from the public and so I don't have to
try to fool them to gain their favour.
I am not concerned as to whether people like me or not so long
as I am at peace with my own conscience.
The other day someone told me that some of the old U.B.P.
group don't like me any more because of some of the things I
have written lately ... and especially because of the St. Andrew's
School affair in which some of them exercised power
disgracefully.
To say I was amused is putting it mildly. I didn't court the
favour of these people when they had power. I certainly don't
need to do so now. These people don't seem to realize yet how
completely they have destroyed themselves.
Finally ... I recognize the power of the written word. I realize
the great responsibility I bear in writing for a widelN read
newspaper.
And so ... every day of I>l) lfe .. and several times a idN in
times like toda\ I pra) to God for guidance. As a result. I can
say with pride anid deep satlisfl,, II. Iitit at no I tilme iI ll lthe
millions of words I have written have I made a single steatient
that I didn't believe to be true ,t the line I wrote it.
Nor did I ever try to fool the voters when i was .-aniddate for
the House of Assembly. I lost two elections because I r:tused to
lie to the people. People around me were using every possible
means to fool the people. It seemed at the time that Itie> had
gained an advantage.
Where are these self-centred. short-sighted politicians today?

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY
I wonder what Francis Bacon was thinking about in 1598 when
he wrote a letter to the Earl of Essex stating that "opportunity
makes a thief?" Was he thinking about time or money or what?
- DUPUCH


THE GOVERNOR
General, Sir Milo Butler and
Lady Butler, (far left) greeted
hundreds of guests
Wednesday at the annual
Christmas reception at
Government House. Among
those attending were Lyford
Cay developer, Canadian
financier E.P. Taylor and Mrs,
Taylor, British High
Commissioner Charles
Treadwell, Mrs. Ronald Spiers
and Mr. Ronald Spiers, the
American Ambassador.


have used his common sense
and stopped Mr. Hanna on the
floor of the House of Assembly
with his foolishness, but
instead he kept his mouth shut,
so I concluded that he agreed
with what Mr. Hanna had to
say.
Since this is a matter that
affects the livelihood of every
Bahamian in the domestic
industry it is time for their
a:present.r e t to speak out for
them.
Mr. Moxey should be
congratulated for his stand on
this subject. I wish to God that
there were more men in the
House of Assembly like hinm
and not bootlickers like the
rest of them.
It is time for Pindling to tell
Hanna in strong words who is
the boss. If he does not or
cannot, then the backbenchers,


along with the opposition who
disagree with the
mismanagement of his
administration, should press
for a vote of no confidence,
and to hell with Pindling and
Hanna.
This country should not be
allowed to go to the dogs by
two men who are pretending so
much as if they have the
country at heart, when at the
same time they are killing
everything they put their hands
to.
I love this country and there
are many like me who do.
What I would like to see is
progress, but how can it
progress when the men who
govern cannot be trusted.
In 1967, when the P.L.P.
government took this country
over with a slim majority, we
had a good government but
now what do we have? I know
a bunch of power hungry and
moneymongers who seek only
their own interest.


3
You may not know this Mr.
Pindling and Mr. Hanna, but I
talk every day with hundreds
and hundreds of Baharnans
who were ardent supporters of
this government, but have since
lost faith in it. These are the
people your government will
have to facecoe the next
general election. They are tired
of foolish laws that have been
passed without any
consideration for them. Sweet
talk will not do next election
Mr. Pindling but a good
account of your administration
during your term in office.
I trust the F.N.M. will find a
suitable candidate to challenge
Mr. Hanna in his district, He
just has to go. No apology Mr.
anna, you are just not a
politician.
This country is on a collision
course, and you Mr. Pindling, if
you do not put on your
Captain's head, we will all be
wrecked.

SDon't let shopping become a bore this Christmas

as a citizen of The Bahamas, and that any person who
knows any reason why registration should not be granted
should send a written and signed statement of the facts
within twenty-eight days from the 14th day of December

SHOPPING can be a bore.
And rushing around over town
during the Christmas season
can develop into a chore.
Give yourself a break this
season and pay a visit to
Bonneville Bones which,
together with Aquarius, has
proved to be a successful
experiment in marketing
unusual clothes.
Tensions and the years drain
away as you mount the stairs
at the Western end of Bay
Street as blasts of the latest
and grooviest sounds impel you
into the relaxing fun
environment of Bonneville
Bones.
This swinging boutique is
owned by the equally swinging
Bahamian team of Victor
Moody and Gabriel Lightbourn
with Pat Paul, who is black and
beautiful, as the manager.
What's in a name? In the
case of Bonneville Bones it's
not a case of a rose by any
other name smelling as sweet
for the name is an integral part
of the philosophy of this
groovy boutique.
Twenty per cent of the total
stock in the boutique is
designed and manufactured by
Bonneville Bones' own factory
in London.
Vic works the factory
together with his friend
"Bones" who owns and rides
through swinging London on a
Triumph Bonneville. So what
better name for Nassau's
swinging London boutique
than Bonneville Bones?
Three years ago Bonneville
Bones was a couple of rooms
containing an optician's office.
Victor, Gabriel and Bones
knocked down the dividing
wall and took up the tiling to
expose the original Bahamian
wood which is now the lovely
floor of Bonneville Bones.


Osborne and Little
(London) Ltd. supplied the
hand-printed wallpaper frieze,
the rest of the walls are
covered in flesh coloured velvet
and the lighting is from Miami
providing classy spotlights with
a few well-placed flourescents.
Thus Bonneville Bones
provides an international
environment for the display
and retailing of clothes for an
internationally clothes
conscious clientele.
Because 20 percent of the
stock is designed and made in
their own factory individuality
and reasonable prices are
afforded their customers.
Victor is in London so much
that not the slightest nuance of
change on the fashion scheme
escapes him. On the other hand
he is also in Nassau much of
the time so that he is alert to
use his ingenuity to adapt
London originated designs not
suitable for wear in Nassau.
I took the opportunity to
ask Victor what's in on the
fashion scene.
We are still in the revival age
he said. Two years ago high
fashion was a revival of the
40's and now in 1974 it's a
revival of the 50's. Bonneville
Bones adds that extra
authentic touch with
authentic touch with the
writing on the labels designed
to jell with the era.
The "blousom" jackets.
reminiscent of the basketball
teams of the 50's, are made
specially for Bonneville Bones
of Nassau.
The price of clothes are up,
Victor said, because the world
prices on cotton and more
particularly leather goods have
sky-rocketed due to world
shortages and 'though some
rises were not justified a rise of

40 per cent is necessary to
meet costs. Bonneville Bones'
customers can take advantage
of minimum prices made
possible by the absence of the
middleman between factory
and retail outlet.
Popular items at Bonneville
Bones are the tank-top
sweaters which start at $7.50
colours range from solid white
to the most sexy combinations
of colours.
There are leather items
galore -- jackets and shirts. A
beautifully styled and tapered
English gaberdine and wool
suit with 1930 stripes and
waistcoat retails for $125.


There are sunshades in the
latest styles and colours
starting at $5.00 and a variety
of bleached denim jackets,
shirts and pants in the latest
50's style.
Besides Victor when he's
here (he's here right now
having just got back from
London Tuesday evening after
sending on their Christmas
stock before him,) Gabriel and
Pat, Frances Clarkeson and
Oliver Darville are at
Bonneville Bones to help serve
you and enjoy living. Oliver,
incidentally, plans to become a
Minister of the Baptist Bible
Church and is saving his money


to go away to study Theology
at the University.

for 'common' problem

expecting a baby soon and are very happy. We are not
married, but because we are not bound to each other by
marriage-only because of our love and commitment to
each other-we feel our relationship is stronger than one of
legal ties.
Neither one of us wants to get married, but I am
worried about the complications that could arise in the
future. For instance, if one of us should die, since we are
not legally married, wouldn't it be hard for the remaining
one to obtain the belongings of the deceased partner? And
if there were a separation, where would we stand? Also,
would his Blue Cross and insurance cover me, too? Would
our child be considered illegitimate?
If we stay together for seven years, we understand our
union will be considered common-law. But what if it
doesn't? Can you help me? NEEDING INFO
DEAR NEEDING: You are asking some intelligent [and
most timely] questions which only a lawyer can answer. I
suggest you see one, and pay him for what he knows.
DEAR ABBY: My daughter is 15, and I suppose you'd
call her "normal," for today's world. Her language is atro
cious, and her clothes are "stylishly disreputable," but she is
a straight-A student and plays the clarinet in her high school
band.
She has one strange hangup, which is why I am writing
to you. We have two very old female boxers who sleep at
the foot of her bed. Realizing that one day they will die,
our daughter insists that when they do she wants to keep
their ears! This isn't as far out as it sounds, considering
she communicates well with animals and wild birds.
Should I try to discourage her from keeping the boxers'
ears after they die? PAPA BEAR
DEAR BEAR: How does she intend to "keep" the
ears? [Pickled in formaldehyde? Cast in bronze?] If there
are no laws prohibiting the keeping of pets' parts after they
depart this life, what's the harm?
DEAR ABBY: My daughter in law did not acknowledge
any of her wedding gifts and she has been married for
more than six months. She says she is "sorry," but now it
is too late to do anything about it.
I am terribly embarrassed because many of my good
friends sent gifts. I don't know which direction to take.
Should I, as a mother in law, interfere? I wouldn't mind
helping her-or even writing them all myself, but I don't
want to stir up trouble.
Please advise me. PERPLEXED
DEAR PERPLEXED: I would tell my daughter in law
that even tho it is very late, it is not TOO LATE to ac-
knowledge her wedding gifts, and I would offer to help her.
If she refuses, I would then write to those who sent her
gifts out of friendship to me, apologize for her negligence,
and thank them myself.

Jimmy Millar dies of a


heart attack in Costa Rica


3
I *r~d~d~ii


Mr. and Mrs. Millar left
Nassau in 1970. They lived in
London for about a year and
then moved to a ranch in Costa
Rica, which Mr. Millar
managed in connection with
the export of beef cattle.


__________ _______________________p


MR. JAMES Robertson
Millar, 55, (pictured) died in
hospital in San Jose, Costa
Rica, on Thursday following a
sudden heart attack at his
home.
With him at the time of his
death were his wife, Peggy, and
two daughters, Mrs. Alex
Pinder and Miss Diedre Millar
of Nassau. His wife is the
youngest daughter of the late
Mr. and Mrs. D. S. D Moseley
of Nassau. The couple's two
daughters were visiting them
for the Christmas holidays.
They have a third daughter,
Mrs. Peter Lojoie of Stoneham,
Mass.

PROPOSED ONO MUD

Family Gi
THE FAMILY Guardian
Insurance Company announced
today that it had entered into a
contract with the local building
firm of G & G Associates to
construct two district sales
offices in New Providence.
One of the offices will be
situated on Marathon Estates
Road, and will house the
Company's Palmdale District
Office, which presently
occupies the Shell (Bahamas)
Ltd., building on Madeira
Street.
The second office will be
constructed on Thompson
Boulevard and will house the
Company's Chippingham
District Office, which is now
located on Horseshoe Drive in
Oakes Field.
Mr. Roscow Pyfrom, the
company's President,
in discussing this project,
mentioned that because the
Company's directors wanted to
establish an image building
which could be duplicated
throughout the Caribbean, and
be easily recognizable as a
Family Guardian Office, three
local architectural firms were
asked to enter competition and
submit drawings. They were
requested to bear in mind that
Family Guardian was a young,
vibrant company, and that
their design should reflect
modern aggressiveness. The
design submitted by AR/COP
Ltd., was selected.
The Quantity Surveyors for
the project are Denis Hingston,
Widnell & Trollope. The
Structural Engineers are
George Cox, Wallace Evans and
Partners.
The contract calls for
construction to commence on
January 14. 1974.

work of The Sir Victor Sassoon
(Bahamas) Heart Foundation.
The multi-million dollar
surgical centre is the most
modern cardiovascular
treatment facility in the
southeastern part of the United
States.
The Heart Foundation's
affiliation with St. Francis
Hospital was effected two
years ago by Dr. James R.
Jude, a prominent
cardiovascular surgeon in the
Miami area and a trustee of the
Sir Victor Sassoon (Bahamas)
Heart Foundation.
Up until the time of the
dedication of the
Cardiovascular Centre at St.
Francis most of the major
heart operations underwritten
by the Foundation were done
at Jackson Memorial Hospital.
Jackson Memorial is a part of
the University of Miami School
of Medicine to which the Heart
Foundation is also affiliated.
The financial benefits to the
Heart Foundation through its
affiliation with St. Francis
Hospital are considerable.
Through the efforts of Dr. Jude
the cost of operations to the
Foundation have been reduced
as much as 40% in some cases.
Surgical fees, laboratory costs,
hospital costs and other
medical costs are kept to a
minimum without sacrificing
any needed medical services to
the patient.
The cooperation of the
medical and administrative
staffs is very important in
helping the Foundation to
meet the costs of these
operations for Bahamians.
Another financial benefit is
that donations made to the
Sassoon Heart Fund at St.
Francis Hospital are tax
deductible for U.S. citizens.
This same tax deductible status
also applies to the Sassoon
Heart Fund at the University
of Miami School of Medicine at
Jackson Memorial Hospital.
The scientific dedication of
the Cardiovascular Centre was
attended by a number of
prominent heart specialists afid
surgeons. Principal speaker at
the dedication was Dr. Denton
Arthur Cooley of Houston,
Texas. Dr. Cooley is the
Surgeon-in-Chief and founder
of the Texas Heart Institute
and is world famous for his
work in heart transplants and
more recently his dedication
towards perfecting an artificial
heart. He is a member of most
major surgical societies in the
world and has been honoured
with many distinguished
international awards.
Lady Sassoon, chairman of
the Sir Victor Sassoon
(Bahamas) Heart Foundation
was an invited guest to the
dedication, which was also
attended by Mary Kelly, public
relations director for the
Foundation.


Thief can't

open safe

he stole!


THIEVES who broke into
the Potter's Cay Produce
Exchange Wednesday night and
carted away a steel safe later
discovered undamaged at the
rear of the building made off
with $9.05 which was removed
from a tray inside the
manager's office.
A spokesman at the Produce
Exchange Thursday said that
the theft and removal of the
safe containing business
documents was found at 7:30
yesterday morning.
He said that had the thief
been able to damage the safe's
lock, nothing worthwhile
would have been found inside
as the majority of their
business is arried out with
cheques and no amount of
money is ever kept inside the
building which has been
burgled in the past, along with
the produce exchange branch
at Robinson Road.
Entry was made by
removing some of the metal
louvers from a window at the
rear of the building. After
getting inside, a trolley was
used to haul the safe through
the back exit which was found
opened at 7:30 this morning.
The safe, about three feet
high, was discovered
undamaged in a clump of
bushes behind the building.
The trolley had been dumped
overboard and had to be pulled
out this morning, he said.
Members of the Criminal
Investigation Department were
this morning probing the
break-in.

where he played centre on
their football team and was
appointed centre of their All
Time Great Team. His records
there have never been broken.
Later he coached for his Alma
Mater. He was a member of
Beta Theta Pi fraternity.
In 1925 he married Ruth
Woods of Medina, Ohio.
In 1940 Mr. Davis was
involved in a serious auto
accident, which resulted in a
crushed hip, broken back and
18 other less serious breaks.
While in a cast he had three
coronary thrombosi and his
doctor pronounced him dead.
However, his fighting spirit
brought him through the crisis.
His one desire was to be
with his family and to return
to the Bahamas, which he first
visited in 1935. As soon as he
was able to be moved, his
family brought him to Nassau.
For a time they lived at New
Plymouth, Green Turtle Cay,
Abaco, and aboard their island
sloop, Seawitch.
At the time of his accident
Mr. Davis was owner and
publisher of the Wadsworth
(Ohio) News. After selling his
interest in the newspaper he
became a columnist, then Farm
Editor and Associate Editor of
the Cleveland (Ohio) Plain
Dealer, the largest daily and
Sunday newspaper in that
state.
Mr. Davis, usually
accompanied by his wife,
travelled extensively in the
United States, Canada, the
West Indies, South America,
Central America and Europe.
He was recognized as an expert
on the economics of
agriculture both in the United
States and abroad.
Amongst those who
consulted him on agricultural
problems were the British


Information Service, which
invited him to Great Britain to
view their agricultural
experimental stations; Louis
Bromfield, the Pulitzer Prize
winning novelist, whose
experimental farm "Malabar"
near Mansfield, Ohio, has now
been given to the State of
Ohio; Governor Thomas
Dewey of New York; the late
Senator Robert Taft of Ohio;
Phya Srivisar Vacha, Privy
Councillor to H.M. King of
Thailand, and many others.
Mr. Davis was one of the
"Original One Hundred" who
formed the Eisenhower
Administration. He served as
Assistant Secretary of
Agriculture under Ezra Taft
Benson.
Mr. Davis was later vice
president of the public
relations firm of Walker &
Crenshaw, heading their
Washington office; executive
director of the National Small
Businessmen's Association;
public relations director of the
National Milk Producer
Association and Public
Relations Director of the
Soybean Council of America.
In 1960 he retired to his
home "Georgeside", 46 George
Street, Nassau, and formed his
own public relations firm,
Bahama Public Relations
Limited. In 1964 he retired
from that firm because of
failing health.
However, he continued to be
actively interested in the
Bahamas' young athletes. He
coached many of those who
are active in the Bahamas
Baseball Association. When he
found a talented youngathlete he
would contact Scouting
coaches attached to the U.S.
Major League teams to arrange
for them to see the young men
in action. He attended every

Pen saves hijack victim


ATHENS A young Italian
policeman shot by Arab
guerrillas during the Rome
airport massacre, owes his life
to a gold ballpoint pen, doctors
said.
Ciro Strino was shot twice
and taken hostage in the Rome
shooting spree and
fire-bombing of a jet Monday.
The guerrillas forced Strino,
23, and the other hostages
aboard a Lufthansa jet that


SINGERS ON ZNS


flew to Athens, Da nas.us and
Kuwait.
The sturdy, mustachioed
Neapolitan lay in hospital and
looked at the bent, broken pen
the doctors say deflected the
bullet that could have entered
his heart.
Two bullets entered both
sides of Strino's chest, hut one
struck a hall point pen carried
over his heart- The pen was a
gift from an unknown traveller
months ago. (AP).


LAST MONDAY the Nassau Renaissance Singers, (pictured)
under their conductor Clement Bethel, performed their
traditional annual Christmas concert in the ballroom at
Government House before His Excellency, Sir Mile Butler and
Lady Butler and an appreciative audience.
A recording of this fine choral concert can be heard over
ZNS-1 on Sunday afternoon at 4 p.m.

SAIGON "I'm very
fortunate. God looked after
me," said Homer Elm, a
43-year-old American civilian
released from 2'z months of
Vietcong captivity.
Elm said in an interview that
when he was captured last
October the Vietcong shot his
small truck more than 80
times, yet he never suffered as
much as a scratch.
One of two Vietnamese with
him suffered leg and head
wounds but recovered. The
two Vietnamese also were
freed.
"Tell Mom I'm fine and I
wasn't mistreated," he said,
referring to his b3-year-old
mother. Bonnie Sanderson of
Arcadia, S.C.
Elm, a security officer for
Pacific architects and
engineers, was captured with
the two Vietnamese Oct. 6
while driving in the Mekong
delta. Their truck was marked
with the insignia of the
international commission of
control and supervision, for
which their firm worked.
Elm said he is now married
to a Vietnamese woman, who
was at his side when he arrived
at the Seventh-Day Adventist
hospital for a checkup. He said
his former wife, Betty, lives in
Montgomery, Ala.. with their
son. Homer.
"I was treated very good,"
he said.
He said the Vietcong had
tried to propagandize him on
"odds and ends, but I refused."
Describing the gunfire at the
time of his capture near the
village of Thanh Tri. 110 miles
southwest of Saigon, Elm said:
"I kept hollering: 'stop!
hold it! American!
".'.fter what seemed to be a
long time. although I'm sure it
was only a few minutes, they
stopped firing. I'm very
fortunate. God looked after
me."
Describing his captivity, he
said, "I lived in a mosquito net
It was like a jail cell made of
wood instead of steel. It had a
plastic top, and it leaked."

Knowles out



for revenge



tonight


BAHAMAS Olympic
representative Nathaniel
Knowles who lost the Golden
Glove middleweight final on a
split decision to fellow
Olympian Gary Davis seeks to
reverse the decision tonight
when they clash in the featured
bout of the Amateur Boxing
Association of the Bahamas'
Christmas show at the Nassau
Stadium.
Trained by Oswald Archer
of Freeport, Davis is said to be
in great shape and tonight's
bout should leave no doubt as
to who is the winner.
National coach Bert Perry,
however, has high hopes in
Knowles who during the
Golden Glove contest dropped
his first fight. Perry feels that
Knowles has the potential to
go places.
Richard Major, also trained
by Archer. will be seeking his
revenge on hard hitting
heavyweight Allan Bullard who
stopped him eight seconds into
the first round during their last
encounter.
In other return bouts,
Golden Glove featherweight
champ Nathaniel Whymns take
on Otis Torres and Rex
Burnside meets Paul Cash.
In other bouts iin-tuded on

Foreman t

Norton, sa
SAN DIEGO George
Foreman has signed to defend
his heavyweight boxing title
against Ken Norton on March
26, the San Diego Union says.
Sports editor Jack Murphy
said that the probable site is
Kingston, Jamaica, where
Foreman won the title from
Joe Frazier in January.
The story said the signing
would be announced Saturday
in Oakland, near Foreman's
wayward, ;aWlifornia, home.
Bob Biron, one of Norton's
managers, was quoted -as
confirming the contract.
"Everyone wants a fight
with the champion but we've
got it," Biron said. "The
contracts are signed, everything
is set but the location. I've
never had a bigger thrill. Now
our dream is reality."
Foreman, the 1968 Olympic
champion, is unbeaten as a
professional. He knocked out
little known Joe Roman in his
only defense
Norton, an ex-marine, rose
from obscurity with a split

A.B.A.B. president Fred
Sturrup pointed out that 1974
will bring a busy schedule for
amateur boxers in the
Bahamas. Besides a return
match against Canada, the
Bahamas has been invited to
participate in tournaments
against teams from Boston,
Puerto Rico and Venezuela.
The Bahamas has the talent
he said, but so far it is a matter
of finance. The $3 admission
fee for tonight's bouts will be
appreciated.

By GLADSTONE THURSTON
SENIOR boys basketball
champions St. Augustine's
College and Western Division
pennant winners St. John's
S^* College last night got a taste of
the type of competition they
will have to face to defend
their respective titles in the
inter-scholastic basketball
series beginning January 9.
Eleven schools are scheduled
to compete in this season's
action. Each team is scheduled
to play 20 games, all indoors.
In last night's first round of
the first annual high school
holiday festival basketball
tournament, both St. John's
and St. Augustine's took losses
that dropped them in the
consolation division.
Having won the Eastern
Division undefeated last
season, St. Augustine's last
night were unable to contain
the determined St. Ann's
College who took a one point
edge late in the fourth quarter
and held on for a 48-44
victory.
Physical education teacher
Martin Lundy who sat in for
coach Vince Ferguson said it
might be difficult for St.
Augustine's to stay champions
because their six-foot-six
centre Noel Munroe is out
indefinitely with a leg injury
and through graduation they
.Ro lost a lot of their key players.
.,, Of their 18-number roster,
only four who saw regular
action last season will be
D( RS returning. They are Livingstone
d Rabbes, Greg Cooper, Pat
Smith and Paul Gomez. Jeff
-. Collie and Pierre Coakley came
up from the juniors.
"The loss tonight shows how
much work S.A.C. has to do
and how much further they
have to go if they want to
accomplish anything this
season," noted Lundy. "Yet,
other teams should not take us
lightly."
He respects St. Ann's
though. "They have a very
good team and I think they
will be a force to be reckon
with in the upcoming season."
St. Ann's this season has to
their advantage the
performances of big centre
Horace Pierre and the sharp
shooting of Kenny Fawkes and
Roosevelt Archer. Fawkes and
Archer each scored 10 points.
Prince Williams High who
dropped two consecutive
games to St. John's last season
came through with a 54-41
victory last night.
Kentucky Colonels' guard
Phil Poitier who this season
will be taking over the
coaching duties for Prince Will
pointed out that most of his
players have experienced such
competition before which is an
advantage.
Of the competition he saw
last night, he holds high regards
for Aquinas College Aces who
so far seem to be the best team
