By NICK KELLY
THE PERCENTAGE of
Teachers' College entrants
possessing five "0" levels has
declined from 90 percent in
1961 to 6 percent in 1973.
The startling 84 percent
drop in academic standards
over the 12-year period were
revealed last night by College
principal Patrick Bethel at the
school's graduation
ceremonies.
Mr. Bethel's 16-page address
underscored the problems this
downward trend is creating for
education in the Bahamas and
pointed up changes which must
be made if the College is to
function efficiently and to its
fullest potential.
Mr. Bethel said the College
took in 27 students in 1961,
90 percent of whom possessed
their Cambridge School
Certificate, (equivalent to five
'0' levels.)
In 1964 there was an intake
of 32 with only 20 percent
possessing five '0' levels or its
equivalent.
In 1967 the intake was 53
with 12 percent possessing five
'O0' levels.
In 1970 the intake was 75
with 1 1 percent having the
requisite number of 'O*ievelg.
In 1973 the intake had
jumped to 157 and the number
with five 'O' levels dropped to
6 percent.
While admitting that some
of the country's best teachers
had no 'O' levels, Mr. Bethel
felt, nevertheless that some
standards needed to be set.
"While we cannot even
consider such a standard of
entry at present, it is
interesting to note that one
of the islands to the south,
namely Trinidad, is using five
'0' levels as their minimum
entry qualifications," he said.
Mr. Bethel revealed that this
year. after selecting student
entries on the basis of a two
and three-year course, the
College was forced in
September to take all the
students on a two-year course.
BIG MISTAKE
"I want to state publicly
that I feel this was one of the
biggest mistakes ever made at
the College," Mr. Bethel
declared.
"As principal of this
institution I must take
responsibility for allowing this
to have happened. I can assure
you I will never be a party to
such a lowering of standards
again," he told his listeners.
The figures he had quoted,
he said, indicated that the
College had a "real problem"
on its hands, and ways needed
to be found to arrest this
downward trend in academic
qualifications.
In discussing the 1973
examination results, which he
described as "disappointing,"
Mr. Bethel suggested that there
were four main reasons for the
poor results.
First, while there were
good academic students, there
was also a larger percentage of
weaker students, and this was
shown in the overall results.
Mr. Bethel felt the fault for
this lay in the system.
Secondly, the attitude of
some of the students towards
work, and in particular those
with the feeling that they can
get through on the minimum.
"It does not always work," the
College principal said, and the
fault must be put at the feet,
of the students themselves.
Thirdly, attempting too

much in too short a course and
consequently some students
not being able to cope. "This
fault, he said, must be borne
by the College.
Fourthly, a shortage of
staff during the past academic
year, in particular in the
English Department. The fault
for this must be levelled at the
Ministry of Education, Mr.
Bethel said.
STAFF TURNOVER
Earlier the College head had
drawn attention to the
"fantastic turnover of staff"
during the past ten years.
During this period, he said,
there had been four principals,
three vice-principals and 69
members of staff.
This turnover was one of the
College's big problems and
something needed to be done
to stabilize the situation, Mr.
Bethel said.
"I must admit that our
tapid expansion is partly
responsible for a part of this
but an institution of this kind
needs staff to stay up to five
to seven years, and longer, in
order for them to make a real
contribution," he pointed
out.
In Jaunary however, the
College's staff ratio, now 1.10,
will be the best it has been for
four years.
Mr. Bethel listed other
changes he felt needed to be
made for the improvement of
the Teacher's College.
A change in attitude
towards the entry to the
College. The Ministry
sometimes "seems i ) suggest"
that the school should take all
students who had the barest
minimum qualifications, while
College staff felt that minimum
entry requirements were far
too low and must rise
overnight.
BOTH WRONG
Mr. Bethel suggested that
both parties were wrong. What
had to be accepted was that
the country needed every
student who was genuinely
interested and had the
potential to become a qualified
teacher.
lie felt a way should be
found to screen the candidates
so that the College accepted all
students who were likely to
succeed on an acceptable
course of teacher education.
"Having done that, the
Ministry must. I repeat must,
give us the freedom to run
courses to meet the needs of
the varied groups of people
selected," he said.
This would mean two years
for some, three for others and
possibly longer in certain cases.
"On our part this
automatically means more
flexible courses in order to
cope with the range of abilities,
experiences and backgrounds,"
Mr. Bethel noted.
In reality this meant a credit
system "and we at the College
are giving serious thought to
restructuring our courses along
such lines," he added.
Classes should commence
at other levels in addition to
the normal two-year course.
This would then embrace


teachers at all stages and
include untrained teachers,
those with training and those
waiting to enter a full-time
course of study.
The College should answer
to a board of governors and
not the Ministry of Education.
This would create some
problems but it would also
solve many. Mr. Bethel
insisted.
He suggested that staff.
students and finance should be
in the hands of professionals
and not left partly to chance as
sometimes happened.
6 Reading, probably the
most important subject in the
primary school time-table, was
still one of the biggest
problems in the school system.
In the past the College had
done little about this. In
January however, a team of
two people will be on reading
full time. This would assist in
building reading programmes
to equip teachers in meeting
the many problems facing
them in the schools.
The courses at College
should become more relevant.
In 1974 Mr. Bethel said he
would like to see an optional
course in Agricultural Science
for junior secondary teachers.
"1 feel we must start with
the teachers in this neglected
field of our development," Mr.
Bethel said.
SEX EDUCATION
He also advocated
compulsory courses in sex
education and family planning
as the lack of knowledge in this
"vital social area of our
country is pathetic," he said.
"I suggest that we teachers
must begin to take some of
the responsibility for
education in this direction
and the place to begin is here
at the College. Too many of
our students in schools and
colleges are becoming unwed
teenage mothers.
Another suggestion made by
Mr. Bethel was that at an early
date, and not later than 1975.
courses should commence in at
least one foreign language.
A realistic salary structure
for staff of the Teachers'
Colleges. He had been
hammering home the urgency
of this if the Colleges were to
attract the calibre of lecturers
so badly needed to make the
institution a College of the first
rank," Mr. Bethel declared.
Although a new scale was
approved by Cabinet a few
months ago, it did virtually
nothing to make Collage posts
more attractive.
"There is no doubt in my
mind," he said, "that most
lecturers at the College work
longer hours than staff of
primary and secondary
schools." At present staff was
not compensated for this extra
time, and in some cases, inl
fact, had actually lost salary
upon being transferred to the
College.
The formation of Future
Teacher Clubs in the top grades
of the secondary schools.
These could provide a focal
point for communication and
influence with secondary
students interested in teaching.

BOAC to cut back


20 percent in January


BOAC/British Airways are
to cut back their flight
schedules in January by 20 to
23 percent.
This has been announced in
London and follows massive
cut backs by the airline taken
this month with the worsening
oil crisis.
British Minister for
Aerospace Michel Hazeltine
announced Thursday that the
January fuel allocations for
British airlines are to be based
on 90 percent of the industry's
January 1973 figures.
"This means a shortfall of
between 20 to 23 percent of
anticipated January 1974
uplifts," he said.
The Minister said that the
same allocation would be made
to foreign airlines subject to
the proviso that British airlines
should receive the same
treatment from foreign
governments and suppliers as
their national carriers."

Easier registration


TO MEET the convenience
of drivers, two additional
stations for the registration of
motor vehicles will be opened
by the Ministry of Transport
and Telecommunications on
January 21, at the Fox Hill
Post Office and the Police
Station on Blue Hill Road, near
Robinson Road.
A Ministry spokesman said
the move was made to help
"alleviate hours of waiting in
line at Fort Charlotte during
the re-registration period by
the public." Registrations
expire on March 31, 1974.
Office hours will be the
same as that at Fort Charlotte
9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday
through Friday.
Under the new registration


system:
All public service vehicles
and all vehicles bearing license
plates beginning with an NP
prefix are to be re-registered at
the Fort Charlotte Road
Traffic office.
All trucks and vehicles
whose license plates bear an N
prefix are to be re-registered at
the Police Station on Blue Hill
Road.
However, as in the past,
driver licenses will be renewed
at the Fort Charlotte office
only.
All motor cycles and
vehicles whose licence plate
numbers are not prefixed by a
letter are to be re-registered at
the Fox Hill Post
Office.

The 81-year-old leader did
not attend yesterday's funeral
for Premier Luis Carrero
Blanco because of flu, officials
announced.
But 24 hours later he
emerged from his palace
residence for the memorial
service in the San Francisco El
Grande church.
Wearing his uniform of
generalissimo, Franco was
accompanied by his chosen
successor, Prince Juan Carlos
De Borbon. A bitter wind was
blowing across the city under
leaden clouds.
Strong contingents of armed
police blocked off all
approaches to the church and
kept the plaza in front clear.
Inside, several hundred
Spanish government notables
and the diplomatic corps filled
the pews.
Probably because Franco's
appearance was unexpected,
there was little reaction as the
cortege of official cars rolled to
the church entrance.
But one hour later, when the
services were ending, the crowd
had grown to perhaps a
thousand many of them
apparently plain clothes men,
Police rifle men were
stationed in pairs on the roofs
of buildings overlooking the
plaza and the lines of armed
police kept a sharp eye on the
side-walk.

Rioters storm

building
BEIRUT Leftist rioters
machine gunned a government
building in Tripoli and
barricaded highways and tore
off traffic lights in Beirut in
the fourth day of
antigovernment rioting.
A police spokesman said
Government troops drove off
the attackers but suffered no
casualties.
The government of Premier
Takieddin Solh made move to
crush the demonstrations that
have swept Lebanon's three
major cities.
Observers said the
government of this
half-Christian, half-Moslem
democracy appeared to be in
no immediate danger.
In Beirut thousands of
demonstrators raced through
the streets shouting slogans
against the soaring cost of
living, and denouncing
government actions against
student demonstrations.
Leftist groups claimed
government troops fired
Tuesday at students peacefully
marching to protest
skyrocketing prices in Tripoli,
Lebanon's second largest city
60 miles from Beirut.
The clash was followed
Wednesday by the arrest of a
local leftist politician, Farouk
Mukaddem, on a charge of
staging reprisal attacks on army
and police patrols in Tripoli.

Ireland.
Police have blamed the
London attacks on the IRA,
which is waging guerilla war to
oust the British from Ulster
and unite the province with the
predominantly Roman
Catholic Irish Republic.
A young American tourist
walking along St. Martin's
Street when the first bomb
went off said: "I thought for a
moment that I was back in
Vietnam. I saw one man fall to
the pavement and then a
second came running up the
street yelling "I'm on fire!"

Kissinger made two speedy
tours of the Mideast after the
October war to set the
conference up. Of the
combatants, only Syria
boycotted the parley because it
charged the conference was
biased in favour of Israel.
Saturday's final session
lasted a mere 15 minutes
because agreement on the
committed had been worked
out before.
Israeli and Egyptian
spokesmen said they were
satisfied with the decision to
form the committee.
Both agreed the final session
was "cordial and businesslike"
in contrast to yesterday's
exchange of atrocity charges
between foreign ministers
Ismail Fahmy of Egypt and
Abba Eban of Israel.
The formation of the
committee, even if its work is
only limited to formalities, was
seen as a positive step to keep
the movement of the
conference underway until
after the Israeli national
elections Dec. 31.
A spokesman for U. N.
Secretary General Kurt
Waldheim. who presided at the
opening phase, said the
ambassador-level talks may
begin next week. Military
delegates might also arrive in
Geveva at the same time, he
said. (AP)

RABAT The Kuwait
government today handed
over to the Palestine
Liberation Organization the
five terrorists who killed 31
people in a hijacking at
Rome airport, official
Moroccan sources reported.
Four Moroccan officials
were among the 31 people
killed Monday when the
terrorists hurled grenades
into a parked Pan American
World Airways jetliner. The
terrorists surrendered at
Kuwait airport Tuesday
after hijacking a Lufthansa
plane from Rome and
killing a hostage in Athens.
The Moroccan
government had demanded
"exemplary punishment
without mercy" for the five.
Italy had also asked Kuwait
to return the five to stand
trial, but the two countries
have no extradition treaty.
The Palestinian
Liberation Organization
denounced the operation
and called for the
extradition of the men "to
stand trial before a
Palestinian revolutionary
court."
It was not known
immediately where the five
Arabs would be taken to
stand trial, but the PLO has
its headquarters in Beirut,
Lebanon.

WASHINGTON The
House of Representatives killed
an emergency energy bill early
today.
The House voted down the
Senate bill 219 to 34. Many
congressmen opposed the
Senate bill because it did not
contain a restriction on
windfall profits for oil
companies.
At the peak of the balloting
on this bill that would have
given President Nixon a free
hand to order gasoline
rationing, the House suffered
its own energy crisis as the
electronic voting system broke
down.
Congress remained
deadlocked over the energy
legislation. House Democratic
leader Thomas P. O'Neill Jr. of
Massachusetts said: "1 don't

O'Neill said the White House

He charged that President
Nixon "wants a monarchy. He

House Democrats claimed it
was up to the senate to initiate

Representative John
Brademas, assistant Democratic
whip, blamed the Republicans
and "big oil" interests for the
impasse that bocked house
threats by senators from
oil-producing states, dropped a
provision to restrict windfall
profits. It passed a
stripped-down bill giving the
president emergency energy
power until April 1.

EDITORIAL

Man's inhumanity to man


By ETIENNE DUPUCH
If you have tears to shed prepare to shed them now.
- Mark Antony's s ovation at the bier of Julius
(Shakespeare).


Caesar


AN HONEST man died of. a broken heart in Nassau on
Tuesday and he will be taken to his last resting place tomorrow.
At this moment I am torn between emotions of deep sorrow
and great anger and so I must exercise restraint in writing this
article.

F. N. Russell was a Cat Island farmer. He must have worked
hard as a young man because he went much further than the
average Out Island farmer.
He succeeded well enough to come to Nassau and become a
successful trader in the produce market.
He was also a man of foresight. This was shown in the fact that
he invested money in properties that he believed would yield him
income to secure him in his old age.

F. N. Russell was more than a farmer and a trader. Hie was
endowed with extraordinary talents which he tried to use In the
service of his country ... and his people.
He was a politician during a period when the Bahamas
experienced a sudden awakening among the underprivileged
masses of these islands. He used his talents to help arouse this
consciousness among his people.
Unlike most politicians, he sought neither office nor pecuniary
advantage for himself. All he wanted was the right to serve as a
soldier in a cause that was near to his heart.
It is, therefore, not surprising that he was one of the men who
helped to draft the P.L.P. constitution.

Long before this party was formed he worked hard .... and
suffered for his daring ... in trying to elect candidates to the
House of Assembly, drawn from the ranks of the people, for his
home district at Cat Island.
During this period he suffered many heartbreaks when he saw
his people selling their votes to the group he considered their
oppressors.
And so he was a happy man when the time came that there was
evidence of a spark of awakening and a movement towards
unity among his people.

Up to this time I was not aware of the existence of F. N.
Russell.
At this point he realized that he needed a new medium through
-which to reach a wider audience in the islands with his rallying
cry for real freedom for his people.
And so he started writing letters to The Tribune.
There was an unusual ring of honesty, sincerity and truth in his
.ktters ... and they were extraordinarily well written ... so well
written that, even though we were on different sides, I wanted to
meet this man.
I wanted to know this man because I admired his courage, his
crusading spirit. Even though I didn't agree with most of the
things he wrote, I felt we could be friends. This man was no
sneaking, snivelling politician. This was a MAN in the truest sense
of the word.
And so I expressed a desire in one of my articles for him to
come to The Tribune to see me.
He came ... and when we parted that day we both felt that
we had made a new friend ... even though we agreed to disagree
on the approach to political issues of the day. I wanted reform
within the structure. He wanted a complete change.

We both continued to write ... he for his side, I for mine.
I encouraged him to use The Tribune as a forum for the
expressing of his views because I have long since learned that,
although we may never find the absolute truth, the only way to
let reasonably near to it is by public discussion between men and
women of goodwill who are sincerely trying to find this elusive
prize.

It was a happy day for F. N. Russell when the P.L.P. gained
control of the country.
And, of course, we continued to disagree because he could not
believe possible the things I forecast his government would do ..
even to those who had helped to put them in power.
The time came when I noticed a slight change in the tone of
my friend's letters. He didn't seem so sure of the honesty and
sincerity of his government any more.
As the abuses by the government multiplied and became more
aiid more flagrant this honest man knew that he had to take issue
with them ... as I had myself discovered years earlier when I
found that "the truth was not in them."
Because he was an honest man he wrote letters criticizing the
government he had worked so hard to create. He tried to point
out an honest and rational way for them.
* * ***


And then he fell silent.
I suspected what had happened to this courageous man. He was
living in an area where it was unsafe to hold any views that did
not follow the strict P.L.P. line.
I decided that I must find this man and give him a word of
encouragement ... oh no, not to urge him to continue writing but
to let him know that I was his friend and understood his need for
silence.
One Sunday my wife and I went in search ,if hi icinemarkable
man. We found him way down over-the-hil! He was a sick and
disturbed man because he feared his person and his property weie
no longer safe

And then one day I received a letter for publication. This letter
gave me great pain. The Tribune published iI on February 2nd,
this year.
At the time I wanted badly to go to see Mr. Russell but I
realized that such a visit minught only serve to further aggravate the
persecution it was obvious he was experiencing
The letter, which was published under the heading "F N.
Russell Begs Forgiveness of L.O.P. and Hanna". is published
below:

EDITOR, The Tribune.
"The evil that men do lives after them.
The good is oft interred with their bones."
Although from all sides I am made to feel like a dead man for


hbr? &ribunt


some time now, I cannot help remembering some of the high and
low moments during my struggles in helping to organize and
establish the Progressive Liberal Party in this country.
In 1949, and again in 1956 1 recall roughing it out with the
Hon. Milo Butler, Governor-designate, while he was on his way to
San Salvador to support one of his sons as a candidate for that
island, while I stopped off at Cat Island to support the candidate
there. In those days it took individuals with a special brand of
independence, guts and courage to stand up against the
entrenched Establishment. It also took a person with a certain
amount of apparent disregard for all they had to offer to stand
out as an example for the masses to emulate. To the younger
people of today, I want to make it known that I was such a
person and filled such a role.
The recent overall performance of the Prime Minister in
winning the late general elections reminds me about my prophetic
words about the man after the election in 1967 when I wrote that
Mr. Pindling "was born to rule". But I remember the greatest of
my predictions was in 1967 too, when I met the present
Governor-designate the Hon. Milo Butler Sr., in a barber shop
when I told him that his past record on behalf of his people along
with his regal bearing would suit admirably for him to become
the first Governor of the Bahamas.
Having served the cause and principles of the P.L.P. at a crucial
stage of i-s development without any hope of personal reward, in
this Jubilee year of our country I am asking for an amnesty or
forgiveness, especially from the Prime Minister the Hon. L. 0.
Pindling and his Deputy the Hon. A. D. Hanna. not so much for
the actual criticisms I had honestly offered in my last letters in
1969, but the apparent disrespect which I had made in certain
references to the two men in their high offices. I beg to state now
that all was done without hate or rancour on my part.
Others had opposed the Government and returned to the fold
and were accepted. Bearing in mind the Prime Minister's New
Year's Day speech, 1, in my sunset years ask nothing more than to
be re-accepted in my country and among my people. I simply ask
to be giver a square deal with regard to both the privileges and
responsibilities of our emerging nation. God knows that my
suffering has been great indeed.
F. N. RUSSELL January 29, 1973.


This was a terrible thing. I could imagine the agonies this man
must have endured to cause his great spirit to break so completely
and so abjectly.

I was talking with my daughter, Eileen Carron, on the phone
from my hotel in Coral Gables one day last month before my wife
and I left for England on business and for the West Indies to
attend a press conference. She was greatly distressed by a letter
she had received from Mr. Russell.
I feel I owe it to this man and to the public to reveal the
contents of this letter to show why Mr. Russell felt obliged to
publish an apology to the P.L.P. in the hope that he could escape
the persecution he had endured because he dared to be honest
with himself and the public.
Here is his letter:
Nassau N.P.
3rd November 1973
Mrs. Eileen Carron,
Dear Madam,
I am assuming that you have not entirely forgotten me,
although I feel that I might have offended you in one way or the
other, perhaps in some of my last letters published in The
Tribune before I became ill over two years ago.
Madam, in a small country such as ours, to be able to criticize
as I did and to live above the masses is quite a different story
from having to live in and among them.
At this time let me beg you not to despise and condemn me for
having made an apology to certain PLP leaders through our news
media although I knew I was right with regards to the ultimate
economic ruin for the masses of our people.
But though being sick I was victimized from all sides and was
even physically attacked with a broken off bottle by a group of
young boys.
Your father is a very wise man and a prophet as far as I am
concerned. He offered me a note of advice and extended me the
hand of friendship at a time when I could not really see the
magnitude of the dangers which lie ahead of me. I will ever
remember him for that.
My real source of income was some wooden houses, the taxes
upon which they raised nearly four-fold last year, and this year
certain people were "planted" in most of them who would not
pay me anything at all for weeks on end.
This being the case and expecting worse to come, I am asking.
yea pleading to you to consider me for a job of some kind in The
Tribune.
God knows that I have prayed long and earnestly before
writing this and if my request is granted I will always regard you
as nothing less than my "redeemer," for all alike of my former
foes and friends have entirely despised and deserted me.
I am now 66 years old and a diabetic which is being controlled.
I feel quite fit enough to do some kind ef work although I've
never worked in an office before. But I can and am willing to
lcari.
If I am accepted you yourself, your husband and you:
parents will draw from me the greatest debt of gratitude for the
rest of my life. Madam, please give me a chance to live again.
May you please give my love to your parents and, if you will.
please let Sir Etienne see this letter.
Anxiously awaiting your reply.
I am
Yours sincerely
F. N. RUSSELL


"This is terrible, daddy," mv daughter almost wept over the
phone. "We must do something but I cannot think of anything in
Ti:. Tribune for him. Right now I am being obliged to reduce
overhead in order to meet all the new operating costs. All I can
think about is our farm at Camperdown. I think we should
reactivate our farm and put Mr. Russell in charge of it. This
would serve the double purpose of helping him and the country
at the same time. The farm is so run down now it will cost a great
deal to reactivate it. What do you think?"
"Wonderful," I told her. "We must do it, whatever the cost.
Get Mr. Russell in to see you. make arrangements with him. and I
will come home immediately after the press conference in
Antigua to get it going."
And so I came home on November 30th instead of Chrismi-is
week as I had original) planned

"Dadd\." tmy daughter told me when she met ine at the
airport. "I was shocked %%hen I saw Mr. Russell. He is an ill .and a
broken manii He couldn't undeilake the farm."
"I don'l expect nim to %work," I said. "All we need is a
responsible man with experience in farinning to see that the w .rk
is done."
"He is too ill," she said. "for an kind of outdoor actiitsl We
have to think of something else."
And then she added: "When Mr Russell left my office he was a
completely broken man. lie had such blind faith in the honest.>.
sincerity and kindness of his people that he just didn't understand
... lie couldn't believe ... that this was all possible. didn't believe
the people would let this happen to the country'. he said quietly .
shaking his head in bewildeiment. as he left my office."

The greatest wish for one another


THE CHRISTIAN faith has
been under critical
examination from inside from
its very beginning. Sometimes
this examination has erupted
into reformations and schisms.
Endless debates occur over
whether this dogma or that
dogma is really based on the
original teaching of Christ
Today the whole idea of
rigid dogma is viewed with
great distrust because of
scientific knowledge and
because the custodians of
dogma sometimes have to
propose changes in the light of
reason. All of this is, of course,
quite exciting once the whole
process is maintained at a high
level.
Fanaticism does not serve
the pursuit of truth. It leads
only to blindness, the kind of
blindness that caused
to try and to condemn other
Christians for heresy and to
unleash holy crusades of
slaughter against so-called
infidels.
Christians may never settle
among themselves what Christ
really had to say about tribute
to Caesar, about forms of
worship, about political
systems, about justification of
violence, about divorce and a
hundred other things. Christ
never wrote and all that we
have to go on is what others
wrote about Him.
Perhaps if He did Himself
write it all out in simple
language there would still be
endless disputes over the
interpretation of His words.
Perhaps the courts of
inquisition, bolstered by the
first-hand words of the Master
would be sitting in judgement
of heretics even now. And
armies of the Lord would still
be laying waste the land of the
infidels.
Christ knew the nature of
man. He knew that the debate


over dogma would go on
regardless of His teaching but
He also knew that there would
be one thing which He said
which could not possibly be
misunderstood and
misinterpreted, which would
come through clear in spite of
the centuries and in spite of
the debates. That was His
command that we love one
another.
"Love one another."
Popes and kings,
philosophers and theologians as
well as the humblest of men
can understand that simple but


powerful message. That is the
central theme of Christmas as
it is the central theme of all the
great feasts which celebrate the
Life of Christ. from His birth
in Bethlehem to His crucifixion
at Golgotha.
That is the essence of
Christianity which has so often
been forgotten in the furious
controversies over matters
which though important are
only secondary to this great
commandment. Whenever
mankind understands that all
things will easily fall into lace.


Nearly two thousand yex,,
have passed since the Birth o.l
Christ and the proclamation of
this divine message and it
seems that man is not much
nearer to that peace which
passes all understanding, that
peace which comes only with
the total acceptance of that
divine command, to love one
another.
But this Christmas 1973 will
mark the beginning of another


elft rt
It niay be that more ears will
hear and more hearts will be
open than before to the
promise of that great miracle
which will follow
submission and obedience to
Christ's message of love.
That is the best hope and
the greatest wish that we can
have for one another as we
contemplate once again the
birth of the Prince of Peace.

Deo& ^Abbtc


By Abigail Van Buren
S11 by Clhice Tribme-N. Y. News Synd., Inc.
DEAR ABBY: About a month ago we had a flash flood,
I lost nearly all the treasures I had saved for 45 years.
Albums filled with pictures and snapshots, letters, clippings
g--none of which can be replaced. I had them stored in
plastic containers, and when I opened them, all I found was
';fud and water!
V: It seems that a part of my life is gone, and I am
"artsi over it. I am 60 and have had a very happy life.
.Aur children are married and gone, and there are just the
"two of us.
I've tried to keep busy and not dwell on my loss, but it
"Is on my mind constantly. I wish I could forget this terrible
.nightmare.
Somehow I feel that you can help me. Abby, have you
ever lost any of your treasures? And if you have, how did
-;you get over it? DEPRESSED IN HOUSTON
DEAR DEPRESSED: Yes, Dear. I lost my beautiful
mother in 1945. [She was only 57.] And a few years later, I
lost a wonderful father. [He was 62.] And not a day passes
but what I don't thank God for letting me have my parents
foer as long as I did. I know many who were not nearly as
blessed as I, and I think of those who have survived a far
Greater tragedy-losing their children.
Now, what were you saying about clippings and pic-
taures and other "treasures"?


DEAR ABBY: Out of the blue, my wife told me she
had just terminated a love affair with a friend of ours, but
she wouldn't tell me his name.
I now feel very awkward around all our friends, and
I've asked my wife to tell me which one it was so I will
quit having negative feelings about all of them. She claims
it is all over now so his name is unimportant. How can I
get her to name the man? I do not want to end our
marriage. EENY MEENY MINEY MO
DEAR MO: Tell your wife you think she invented the
whole story to make you jealous, and unless she tells you
hs name, you aren't buying her "confession."
DEAR ABBY: I have had several heated arguments
with my wife over the following problem: When I die, I
want to be buried as soon as possible. I do not want a
funeral, with flowers, prayers, a priest, and a bunch of
long-lost relatives and friends kneeling beside my made-up
corpse. I believe all that nonsense only prolongs the agony
of immediate family and close friends.
My wife says she will not allow my wish to be carried
-out. Can I take legal action now to assure me that my
-wishes will be carried out? NOT A FANCY MAN
DEAR NOT: Morally, it would seem only right that you
aihould have your say about what happens to your body
'after your demise. But legally, your remains may become'
ye "property" of the next of kin. If I were you, I'd talk to
y lawyer.
DEAR ABBY: My husband and I had an argument about
something and hope you can settle it. Does Lawrence
Welk's champagne lady have false teeth? Or are they her
-own? CURIOUS IN LANCASTER
DEAR CURIOUS: They're hers. [I got it straight from
-the horse's mouth.]
DEAR ABBY: I recently married a widower with a 13-
year-old son. Last night I served roast turkey with mashed
;potatoes and gravy. There were just the three of us. David
1,that's not his name] started to put his fingers in the
m*aMdd potatoes, making "road maps, and rivers and val-
I told him it wasn't good manners to put his fingers in
ehis food or play with it. He didn't talk back to me, but he
.looked at his father for support, and his father said, "It's
ktay to eat however you want at home, as long as you
"remember your manners when you eat out or have compa-
mny over."
David brightened up and continued to make road maps,
'etc. in the mashed potatoes with his fingers.
You can see, Abby, my husband is the boss and what he
;says goes.
I told him I was going to write to you and ask how you
felt about this and he said, "Go ahead. I'll bet she says I'm
-right"
Well, what do you say? ANONYMOUS, PLEASE
DEAR ANON: Your husband loses. First, David is
much too old to be playing with his mashed potatoes, but
mere important he should not be allowed to play the "dl-
vide and conquer" game, which appears to be what's hap-
peinag at your house. You and your husband had better get
*a the same team-fast.
DEAR ABBY: This is my first job and I am ready to
climb the walls. I am in a one-girl office with 18 men
including my boss. Everything I do or wear causes comrn-
ments from the men. If I wear a colorful print, someone
ays, "Where's the party?" If I wear black, they say,
"Where's the funeral?" If I wear a short skirt, I hear,
"Wow, look at those gams!" If I wear pants, someone says,
"Hi, Sam!"
IThe money is good and I have to work, but I get so
nervous from all the remarks around here, I'm a wreck.
Can you help me? SENSITIVE

DEAR ABBY: I have an explanation for your male
reader who said women knit in company to give them
something to think about while they're talking.
I learned to knit to give myself something to think
about while my husband was talking, which he did inces-
santly. MEG FROM MINONK

OF EUGENE
EDITOR, The Tribune,
Nothing gives gratification
and compels admiration more
than a gifted artisan skilled in
his work.
I refer to the brilliant legal
expertise demonstrated by the
Slion. Eugene Dupuch, Q. C., in
his recent successful fight
against the extradition of
Robert L Vesco to the United
States.
Daily accounts of his court
room activities were duly
Reported internationally,
nationally in the States and, of
S special interest to a host of his
friends, in the Minnesota news
Media (radio. TV and printt.
XI Those of us in the latter
g categories kept telling the
Suninitiate, "We knew hell do
it And, by George, he did it!
:: Back in the frozen


DUPUCH Q.C
wilderness of Minnesota, I had
the privilege of being a
schoolmate of Mr. Dupuch. St.
John's University produced
other illustrious newsmakers
like Eugene J. McCarthy,
Federal Judge Ed Devitt, a
flock of state legislators, some
pretty good football players,
one damn good theologian Fr.
Emeric Lawrence, 0. S. B.. a
couple of bishops and abbots,
six remarkable saloonkeepers, a
few misfits in high military
positions, and a horde of
characters you wouldn't
believe, Me-I ended up as a
public relations and advertising
man who, for a hobby, writes a
sports column for people who
hate sports.
Dupuch, gifted in many
ways. wrote the school fight
song, edited the paper, and
shamed us into action
generally.
No lover of Nixon, but being
impartial. as reporters always
should be, I am reluctant to
quote another fellow alumnus
of Eugene D. Saint Thomas
More, who also got his legal
degree at Lincoln's Inn in
England. In UTOPIA, the good
saint said, "They have no
lawyers among them, for they
consider them as a sort of
people whose profession it is to
disguise matters." Lest this be
misunderstood-Mlore hadn't
met Eugene Dupuch. Q.C.

Mv Fellow Bahamians:-

We have just gone through an eventful period in our history, and it is now
that time of year again when, more than ever, we should seek to achieve
peace within our hearts. We should also strive to communicate to all men and
women that inner peace and goodwill of which the angels spoke on that first
Christmas in Bethlehem "Glory in God in the highest, and on earth peace,
good will toward men. And so to my friends and to all the people of Fort
Montagu and throughout the Bahamas I extend my very best wishes for a
truly happy Christmas and a prosperous and fruitful New Year.

evening 8:30 p.m. Parental
discretion is advised
"The Chinese Professionals,"
the ultimate martial arts film,
features nine killers, each a
deadly specialist in his own
field. The movie, produced by
Raymond Chow, stars Wang
Yu as a one-armed boxer who
challenges the nine and
savagely defeats them.
The movie is the equivalent
of "The Dirty Dozen" and
"The Magnificent Seven" and
combines a Chief from
Okinawa, a long haired,
wolf-toothed terror who tears
WangYu's arm off in their first
encounter.
There are two Tibetan
llamas who are master of the
Mi Chung Technique: they can
control their circulation and
close off pressure points
voluntarily, thus rendering
themselves invulnerable to
those Oriental fighting
techniques which kill or maim
their victims by attacking these
pressure points.
There are also two Judo
experts, who are trained to kill
without the use of any
weapon. Two of the
'professionals' are boxers from
Thailand who perform a
strange ritual before they fight.
In addition there are a yoga
teacher and an expert in Kwan
Do.
Co-starring in "The Chinese
Professionals" are Tien Yeh,
Tang Hsin and Lung Fei.
"The Chinese Professionals"
is one of the most ambitious
and exciting of all oriental
martial arts adventures to date.

At the apex of his glory and

Catherine Sforza still resists

aimed at his assassination are
being hatched.
One of these plots involve
the female leader herself and is
known as the plot of the Red
Carnation.
The conspirators of the Red
Carnation, by order of their
mysterious leader, arrange for a
meeting between the Duke and
a very beautiful lady, Ginvera
dei Cavalcanti, whose purpose
it is to make the Duke fall in
love with her and then poison
him.
The plot goes awry,
however, when instead of
faking her love for the Duke,
Ginvera falls in love with him.
It also happens that the Duke
falls in love with her.
The plot continues however,
but only following the seige of
Catherine's castle by the Duke
who almost loses his life except
for the aid of a lieutenant,
Riccardo Brancaleone.
Trailing a theme similar to
Shakespeare's Romeo and
Juliet, "The Black Duke"
forces his love into drinking a
cup of wine suspected to
contain poison.
Before dying, she tells him
that both cups of wine
contained poison her
intention being to die with the
man she loved. Deeply moved,
Cesare Borgia asks for her
forgiveness.

drama, "The Deathmakers"

Audran, Noelle Adam, Frederic
De Pasquale and Catherine
Jacobsen.
Throwing its viewers into
the sensitive world of modern
day spying "The Deathmakers"

Audran a young married
couple who carry on an
antique shop operation in
Paris.
Unknown to her, he is an
agent for a foreign spy network
that has commissioned him to
get him French national
defense documents. He is also
to go underground and does so
with the help of Catherine
Jacobsen, a part of the spy
ring.
When a friend tells her of
Pasquale's status, his wife kills
him and wounds his female
accomplice in a fracas that
causes nolice to be called in
and discover in her hiding place
by two strong armed men and
the agent who had ordered
Pasquale to get the secret
documents.
Police reach the scene just
before they are about to kill
her and she is told the full
story of the spying operations.

Alistair MacLean's "Puppet
on a Chain" novel is now an

For this story of an
American undercover agent
sent to Holland to smash an
infamous drug ring, director
Geoffrey Reeve took his
cameras, crew and actors to
Amsterdam, with its canals,
mysterious mazes of
backstreets and old world
charm.
Only in Amsterdam could
Reeve have created the film's
most exciting sequence, a
speedboat chase on the city's
narrow canals. Critics in
Europe have described the boat
chase as one of the most
exciting scenes captured on
film.
Starring as Superagent Paul
Sherman is Swedish star

Connection" revolves around a
chest full of Nazi secrets that
has been hidden in an Austrian
mountain lake'for more than
twenty-five years.
Just retrieved, it has set off
an international scramble
among secret agents. Helen
Maclnnes dreamed up this lake,
called Finstersee, for her plot,
but it wasn't entirely a dream.
There is a real-life lake near
Salzburg called Toplitzee
which is said to contain not
one but seventy chests full of
Nazi secrets. It was this lake
that was used as the location
site for the 20th Century Fox
thriller produced by Ingo
Preminger, starring Barry
newman and Anna Karina.
Rumours have circulated for
years that during the last days
of the war, a band of Nazi
leaders fled to the Salzburg
mountain area

Postal official studies British methods


MORI FORMAL training
tor staff would help the
Bahamas cope with the extra
burden of mail generated by
tourists, thinks a Nassau postal
official who is attending a
course in Britain.
Mr Willard Bradfield Sands.
Superintendent of Posts, has
been studying the structure
and functions of Britain's Post
Office, with special emphasis
on its training organisation,
during a five-month course (24


July to 16 December).
Organised in conjunction with
the Universal Postal Union the
course has also been attended
by officers from Belize, Brazil,
Afghanistan, The Philippiules,
Thailand and Zambia.
During the initial weeks in
London the participants were
involved in various techniques
of instruction including
audio-visual aids and the use of

part in parctical exercises using
lecture and lesson techniques
as well as programme learning,
a method which allows the
trainee to proceed at his own


pace.


CASE STUDIES


Attachments took Mr. Sands
to the Postal Management
College in Rugby in the English
Midlands where he took part in
business games solving
hypothetical postal problems
through case studies and in
syndicate working groups. He
went to Wolverhampton, also
in the Midlands, to study
organisation and admini-
stration of a course for
inspectors and has been to a
training centre in Cardiff,
Wales, to observe first line
supervisory management.
Visits were arranged to post
offices in Cambridge, eastern
England and in London to see
how automation and
mechanisation has speeded the
collection and delivery of mail.
In London, the Post Office's
underground railway moves
45,000 bags of mail a day.
Mr. Sands says the course
has been valuable and he feels
many of the teaching
techniques could be used in the
Bahamas to improve postal
efficiency.

By GLADSTONE THURSTON
BAHAMAS Olympic
representative middleweight
Nathaniel Knowles was all
keyed up for a victorious battle
last night. lie ended the winner
and without even working up a
sweat. His opponent. fellow
Olympian Gary Davis staged a
no-show.
"You know why Gary didn't
show up though"" asked
Knowles. "He was afraid of a
repeat performance ol what
happened in Flreeport.
Davis three weeks ago in the
Amateur Boxing Association of
the Bahamas' Annual Golden
Glove tournament was awarded
a controversial split decision
after a three round encounter
many thought Knowles won
outright.
Their return match last night
was to have highlighted the
A.B.A.B's Christmas show.
"If I were the Golden Glove
champion, I would accept all
available competition," sighed
Knowles last night garbed in
his blue Bahamas sweat suit. "I
wouldn't bring any excuse like
I can't get out. You ctuld
swim from Freeport to
Nassau."
It is understood that Davis
the leader of a band was
scheduled for an appearance
last night.
Nevertheless, things are
looking great for the
24-year-old first runner-up I1n
the Bahamas Federation of
Amateur Sports sportsman of
the year award. The one thing
that seems to beset his
improvement is that he is fast
running out of opponents at
least in the Bahamas.
National coach Bert Perry
who keeps him under constant
training suggested that it might
be best for the amateur star to
turn professional where he can
really put his talent to test.
Perhaps after next year's
Caribbean and Pan American
Games he will.
If everything goes well,
Knowles confirmed that he
might do that.
Of the K ntiw I. )ta i-,
match. Perry could not say
what caused Davis not to shi(w
up but said "'Gar. is a smart
fighter. In troubled situations
he knows what to do."
"Next to I lisha Obed, I
think Knowles is the best
boxer in the Bahamas."
admitted l'err% a former
heavyweight champion of the
Bahamas. With a good manager
or someotine toti back him
financially, Perry feels that
Knowles within the next six
months will be ready to go


places in the professional
world.
And yet, fans last night were
not void of a main attraction
21 -year-old Golden Glove
lightheavyweight champion
Allan Bullard showed that
much potential still remains.
In his fifth consecutive
victory, he stopped Freeporter
Richard Major 39 seconds into
the first round.
During the A.B.A.B. Golden
Glove tournament, Bullard
stopped Major eight seconds
into the first round setting a
new record.
Bullard, a very disciplined
boxer makes training sessions
easy by learning very quickly
noted coach Perry. "He has a
better chance than most in the
International field because ot
his punching power," Perry
said.
With both Perry and
Knowles in his corner, Bullard
went out confident last night
and after swopping a few
meagre punches with his
opponent broke loose with a
solid right to Major's jaw
dropping him to the canvas.
Major was up within the
mandatory count but in no
shape to carry on so he took
his second defeat at the hands
of Bullard.
Bullard's fine performance
won him the 'most outstanding
boxer' award.
Dubbed the young Bob
Foster. Perry ranks Bullard
next to Knowles potentially.
He is now grooming Bullard for
one of the International games
next year.
Featherweight Golden Glove
champ Nathaniel Whymms
once more held his own against
Ali Torres winning a third
round technical knockout after
decking Torres late in the
second round.
Whymms found last night's
encounter much harder to
accomplish than when they
met during the golden glove
tournament. Whymmns then
won b\ a first round knockout.
"Tlhis is the first time I ever
went in the ring out of shape."
Wh ,ntns pointed out after his
victory. Hie was confident
nevertheless and this showed
when he held on against the
determined Torres.
i enough tops in the amateur
field, Whtinms at present said
that it is unlikely that hie will
join his brother Gypsy Mike
Whymms in the professional
rankings. Gypsy is the
lightweight champion.
Nathaniel feels that amateur is
where it's at and his aim is to

ESTATE OF THE RIGHT HONOURABLE JEAN
LADY ASCOMBE



NOTICE is hereby given that all persons having
any claims or demands against the above-named
Estate are requested to send the same duly
certified to the undersigned on or before the
Eighteenth day of January. A.D.. 1974.

AND NOTICE is hereby given that at the
expiration of the time above-mentioned the
assets of the deceased will be distributed among
the persons entitled thereto having regard only
to the claims of which the Executors shall then
have had notice.
HIGGS & JOHNSON,
Sandringham House,
83 Shirley Street,
Nassau. Bahamas

Attorneys for the Executors


The presence of skipper
Randy Rodgers in the back
four for the first time in a
month inspired Tropigas and
against Paradise they gave their
best display of soccer so far
this season.
Rodgers, Andy Gautaume
and Peter Cole are sound at the
back while Murray Darville and
Love should form a fine
midfield trio tomorrow.
Spearheading their attack
Tropigas have three very
competent forwards in Sammy
Haven Bert Laing and Brendan
Gray.
McAlpine presently placed
second in the league table
behind Red Lions with a 2
wins, I loss record found their
old form in the second half of
their last outing against
Paradise two weeks ago.
In a game marred by three
incidents which resulted in
three players being sent off
(McVeigh, Haywood and
Lever) McAlpine, 2-0 down at
half time, scored five goals in
the second half to win 5-3.
Player/coach Dick Wilson
was mainly responsible for that
remarkable victory he put
himself on at half time and
scored two goals in addition to
setting up a third.
In Mike Pixton, McAlpine
seem to have found a winger to
add variety to their attack and
work along with Simpson and
Lawler.
Pixton impressed with his
speed and acceleration against
Paradise and his goal for the
narrowest of angles was a
beauty.
In the middle the ever
faithful Dave Jenner, Mike
Haywood and Richard Baptiste
have proved themselves against
the league's defences and
Crozier, Williams, Gibbons and
Lever form a formidable
defence.
In the other BFA game

table.
Red Lions were surprisingly
almost beaten by cellar
dwellers Dynamos last week.
Outside left Paul Whitfield
put the Lions ahead early in
the first half but Richard
Adderley netted the Dynamos
first goal of the season to make
the score 1-1.
Skipper Don Maples saved
the Lions' face when he scored
late in the second half but
Dynamos kept the score at 2-1.
However, despite last week's
poor performance the Lions
will undoubtedly be too strong
for St. Georges who have won
one game this season.
Spearheading the Lions
attack will be Maples, Knight
and Whitfield with Seville.
