... .. Editorial
By ETIENNE DUPUCHI
YESTERDAY my wife and I attended the funeral
services for F. N. Russell at Christ the King Church in
Ridgeland Park when the Rector, the Rev. Murillo Bonaby.
paid a brilliant tribute to the rare qualities of this
remarkable man.
The church was filled to capacity. Many people were
obliged to stand outside. Occupying a seat of honour in the
church was Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance
Arthur Hanna.
At the conclusion of his sermon Fr. Bonaby read the will
of Mr. Russell. This document revealed that he was a man
of substance.
This fact made the letter he wrote to my daughter.
Eileen Carron, on November 3rd all the more poignant.
This letter was published in my column in The Tribune on
Saturday.
The will showed that Mr. Russell was not urgently in
need of a job, as reading his letter might have suggested. It
must therefore, be concluded that. having been deserted
and persecuted by a party to which he had given a lifetime
of devoted service because he dared to tell them the truth
in the interests of the public welfare, all he sought was
genuine appreciation and understanding which he believed
he would find in The Tibune family.
He wasn't wrong. We appreciated his talents and we gave
unstintingly the friendship he sought.
It is a great pity that some kindness was not extended to
him by the politicians while he was still alive.


The Rev. PRESTON MOSS.

failure to "inform and consult
with the Bahamian people"

"'It is with a deep sense of

Christmas sales: little change


By MIKE LOTHIAN
STORE operators were
today divided in their opinions
on what business has been like
this Christmas season, but
more than half of those
responding to a Tribune survey
said their sales were up over
last year.
None of the shops contacted
reported business the same as
during Christmas, 1972. all said
either sales were up slightly or
down slightly. No one felt
there had been any major
change in either direction.
A spokesman for Arima, a
fashion centre on Wulff Road,
said business in her store is
definitely "slower than it was
last year." She said one cause
could be the fact that shoppers
looking at their calendars
might not have realized that
Christmas Day was so close to
a Sunday, so she was looking
tor a big turn-out today. "1
could use it ." she added.
The Big One, an East Street

department store, reported "it
is pretty good, a bit better than
last year."'
The manager of the House
of Values in the Nassau Arcade
said this December has been
"the best month I have had
since I started in '62," ie said
business is "a little better"
than during last Christmas.
According to a spokesman
for Bay Street's Tourist Shop
(Bahamas Ironmongery ), "all
we can say is that business has
been good. We've go complaints. It has been better
than last year."
The Nassau Shop, across Bay
from the Tourist Shop, is doing
well. "We are quite pleased
with otr business this
Christinas. We don't have final
figures yet but for the first two
weeks of December it has been
slightly better than last year. I
don't think there is going to be
a decline, but I'm not prepared
to say there's going to be that
Much of anl increase."

LIGHTNING DRAMA


By NICK KELLY
ONE OF Bahamasair two
79-passenger BAC-1 II jets was
put temporarily out of
commission on the weekend
when it was struck by lightning
Thursday evening while on a
flight from Freeport to Miami.
. The incident resulted ;'1 a
"chaotic situation" for the
airline Friday and Saturday as
it tried to move passengers at
the height of the pre-Christmas
travel rush, general manager
Max Healey said today.
The BAC- 111 received the
strike or near strike as it was
travelling through the very
severe thunderstorm
experienced over the Bahamas
and southern Florida
Thursday.
Mr. Healey said the lightning
magnetized the aircraft,
knocking out the electrical
system and automatically
throwing off the instruments.
"Fortunately the plane was
able to land safely in Maimi,
but it had to be grounded until
it could be demagnetized and a
check made for structural
damage," Mr. Healey said.
He explained that the severe
turbulence could have caused
stresses in excess of the
normal, but this could only be
determined from the flight
recorder.
The recorder was removed in
Miami and examined by an
independent firm.
If the recorder had shown
these stresses to have been


Electrical system

in heavy storm


,x,erlued at any point, the
aircraft would then have had to
go in for a thorough
inspection, Mr. Healey said.
The recorder indicated no
need for this and the BAC'-I 11
was returned to service
Saturday night.
Aggravating Friday and
Saturday's crisis situation was
the fact that one of the
company's two 16-seat Otters
was also out of service awaiting
its airworthiness certificate.
Mr. Healey said the Otter
had been grounded for three
weeks waiting the arrival of
replacement seat tracks from
the deHlavilland factory in
Canada.
The parts have apparently
been lost on route, he said,
although Bahamasair is holding
the invoices.
The national carrier offer
between 2,500 to 3,000 seats
daily on its inter-island and
Florida service.
Demand is particularly
heavy at this time of year, and
Bahamasair had hoped to
resore service to the October
28 level but has been delayed
by the Otter.
As a result of Thursday's


mishap it became necessary to
cancel certain services and
substitute F-227 equipment
with only about half the
capacity of the jet- on some
flights.
Actually cancelled were
flights 503/4 to Mangrove Cay
and Congo Town and flights 48
Miamii/Freeport/Nassau on
Friday, December 23.
Flights cancelled Saturday
were 907/8 to Crooked Island:
603/608 to Georgetown and
Deadman's Cay and 203/854
to Andros Town and Great
Harbour Cay.
characterized as "rolling
delays," led to a growing
backlog of passengers until
Sunday, by which time nearly
all services were operating
normally, Mr. Healey said.
He pointed out that
Sunday's jet flights 40, 42, 48
and 54 to Miami and flights 52,
and 46 to Freeport and 44 to
Freeport and Miami, all
departed from Nassau on time.
Flights 38 to Freeport was
delayed 45 minutes out of
Nassau due to the illness of one
of the flight crew and flight 50
to Freeport and Miami
departed 23 minutes off


A spokesman for Maura's
which operates at both Bay
Street and Shirley Street sites.
said the Bay Street store did
not really start to pick up until
"Ihursday last week, when the
Government payroll came out.
Since then it has "picked up
verv well."
He said "the end of
November and the whole of
i)ecember were excellent on
Shirley Street. It has been
better than last year, certainly
in the toy line, with the
balance of the business being
about the same."
Alicia's, a women's wear


store on Rosetta Street,
reported "it was slow at the
beginning and fast at the end"
of the Christmas season.
Christmas shopping started in
October, 1972. the spokesman
said, but business this year
only began picking up about
two weeks ago.
Overall, however, "I hate to
say it but it hasn't been as
good as it was last year."

Stop-'n-Shop. the economy
department store on Bay, has
suffered a 'moderate" drop in
business from last year's level.
A spokesman said "up to


Thursday (when civil servants
were paid) it hadn't been too
good.'
Home appliances dealer
Geoffrey Jones and Company
on Montgomery Street
reported business this season
"good right through We have
done better this year."
The sales at John S. George.
in the Palmdale Shopping
Plaza, have been "pretty fair."
a spokcsi'mi said. "We are
satisfied,' he said. but "1 don't
think it is as good as last year.':
The manager of the St.
Michael's Shop on Market
Street north had "no
comment.'

there were no cancellations,"
Mr. Healey said.
During the "critical"
two-day period a chartered
DC-3 was brought fromn Miami
by the company "asin dication

the problem with equipment,"
he noted.

by the delays and said that
neither Mr. Healey not Mr,
Allen could be contact ed.
It is understood that
Transport Minister Darrell
Rolle was called to the airport
as the result of complaints
from his Mangrove ('ay
constituents.

HUGHES 'TO STAY SOME TIME'


BILLIONAIRE teluse
Howard H. tHughes arrived in
Freeport early last Thursday
morning with publicity-shy
shipping magnate and
hotel-owner Daniel K. Ludwig,
and both are staying at
Ludwig's Xanadu Princess
Hotel, informed sources said.
The sources were supported
by earlier reports that the
Xanadu staff were recently
alerted to expect the arrival of
the hotel's owner at any time.


Hughes is known to have left
his last retreat, a London
penthouse on Wednesday.
A private DC-10 jetliner,
painted white with green trim
and named "0 Maria." is
known to have landed at
Freeport International Airport
about 4:30 a.m. Thursday. The
aircraft's registration number
was N228Z.
Early that same morning the

APPARENT 'TLY hoping to
put the goodwill of the
Christmas season to practical
use, negotiators for the Hotel
Employers Association and the
Hotel and Catering Workers
Union met today, Christmas
Eve, in their continuing effort
to resolve a contract dispute.

QUESTIONS ASKED
Deputy Prime Minister
Arthur Hanna's November 28
announcement that
Government would assume
control of the Paradise Island
Casino, the Monte Carlo and El
Casino when the licenses expire
sparked a number of questions
from the ICYA.
The youths want to know
who will operate the casinos in
view of the "non-existence of
Bahamian expertise."


dispute filed by the union on
November 7 expires on
December 30, opening the way
for legal strike action after that
date.
Eight major New Providence
and Paradise Island hotels were
hit by brief wild-cat strikes on
the morning of Nov. 15.
It took considerable time to
get the two sides to the
negotiating table in the first
instance, because both the
union and the employers were
willing to talk only on certain
conditions.

That deadlock was broken
only through the intervention
of Labour Ministei Clifford
Darling after the Nov. 15
work-stoppages.
Since then the talks have
bogged down at least twice,
and again been re-started only

the elevator was fixed to go no
further than the eleventh floor.
Sources said Hughes is to
stay at the Xanadu "for some
time."
Ludwig is known to be
publicity shy, but not quite as
shy as Hughes, who has not
been in public since the early
1950's.
Ludwig also owns the Kings
Inn and International Hotel in
Freeport.

Four tie in

Tribune contest
FOUR persons have tied
for a round-trip ticket for two
to one of 21 European cities
serviced by Pan American
World Airways. The four
were entrants in The
Tribune/Pan American Photo
Contest, which ended on
November 19.
Getting a perfect score
were John Larreguy, King's

M. Stirling, P. 0. Box
N-3229, Nassau.
The contestants were
required to identify the
location of places shown in
30 photographs.
The tie between the four
will now have to be broken
by a run-off contest to be
conducted at The Tribune
offices early in the New Year.

Intelligence, and Mr. G. A.
Bartlett, Deputy Commissioner
of Police, searched the building
but found nothing. The
building was almost empty as
many employees started their

Oil price may go up




again, warns minister


KUWAIT The Kuwaiti oil
minister warned today the
Persian Gulf nations that just
doubled their posted oil prices
may raise them yet again this
spring.
"The decision taken in
Tehiran Sunday to double the
current oil prices covers only
the first quarter of 1974," said
Abdul Rahman Atiki in a
statement on his arrival home
from Tehran. "Another
decision may come in May."
Atiki spoke as oil ministers
from other Arab nations
gathered in this Persian Gulf
sheikdom to review use of oil
as an Arab weapon in the
confrontation with Israel.
"The significance of today's
conference in Kuwait stems
from the current efforts to
bring about an Israeli
wit hdrawal from occupied
Arab territories," said Assistant
Secretary-General Abdul Azi/
Al- urki of the Organization of
Arab Petroleum Exporting
countries .
Oil Ministry sources in
Kuw.it i forecast "new
based on findings during a
world tour bv Saudi Arabian


Oil Minister Ahmed Zaki
Yamani and Algerian Energy
Minister Belaid Abdessalam.
But they declined to predict
whether the new measures
would include more
production cutbacks or a
widening of the total embargo
on the United States and
Holland.
The economies of Western
I urope and Japan, already
reeling from the over-all Arab
oil cutback, are in for more
trouble as a result of the price
increase.
The six Persian gulf
producers Iran, Iraq, Saudi
Arabia Kuwait, Abu Dhabi and
Qatar announced Sunday
after a two-day meeting in
Tehran that effective Jan. 1
they would increase the taxes
and royalties they collect on
the oil produced from their
fields from $3.06 a barrel to 7
dollars, an increase of 128 per
cent.
They did this by increasing
I thie "posted" price of crude oil
tiomi $5.11 a barrell to
S 11.65 1.
The posted price is an
artificial price set by the
producing companies as the


basis for calculation of the
taxes and royalties paid them
by the western companies that
produce or market their oil.
The price of $5.11 was set in
October, and the posted price
last January was only $2.59 a
barrel.
Dr. Walter W. Heller, the top
economic adviser to the
Kennedy and Johnson
administrations, said the
increase would not have a
major impact in the United

BAR BOMB
BELFAST Two men set
off a bomb in a crowded
Catholic-owned bar in Newry
today killing themselves and
two other men and injuring 15,
many seriously, police said.
The casualty toll was expected
to rise.
The four deaths brought
Northern Ireland's fatality toll
to 926 in more than three
years of violence. The latest
bombing was the worst since
June 12 when five people were
killed by a car bomb in
Coleraine.
Newry is a predominantly
Catholic town two miles from
the border of the Irish
Republic. This led police to
believe the bombing might
have been the work of
Protestant extremists. But the
possibility of an attack by the
Irish Republican army was not
ruled out.
Bartender John Lennan,
who was unhurt, described the
scene: "It all happened so
quickly. These two young men
walked in and went to the back
of the bar. They told us we had
two minutes to get out but
before they finished speaking,
the thing went off in their
hands. It was horrible.'

States because normally the
United States gets only about a
tenth of its total energy
requirements from the Middle
East and even that has been cut
back by the Arab oil embargo
in the wake of the October
Arab-Israeli war.
"The oil price in the United
States is determined by the
price of oil produced here, not
by the Middle East price,"
Heller said on an NBC
programme. (AP)

For half an hour Northern
Ireland's bomb-scarred capital

Hundreds of parents with
children came from the

-ISRAEL

WONT DO

AS SHE

PLEASES

-FAHMY
VIENNA Egypt's foreign
minister Ismail Fahmy in an
interview with the Austrain
mass circulation paper Kurier
disclosed the only compromiil
Israel could count on in th4
peace talks was her acceptance
by the Arab world.
Talking with Kurier's Middl
East expert Heinz Nussbaumet
at an interview in Geneva
Fahmy, who some years ago
was Egypt's ambassador in
Vienna said the only
compromise the Arabs were
willing to make was "to accept
the Israelis in that district but
for that they have to take back
their aggression and change
their war policy.
"We do not fight against
Isreal's existence. This, by the
way, was also clearly stated by
Soviet Foreign Minister
Gromyko."
Kurier said Fahmy described
U.S. Secretary of State Henry
Kissinger as having 'talked and
acted constructively with but
one exception: on Jerusalem.
The American policy on this
question took an unfortunate
turn. I do not want to go into
details on that."
The paper explained
Fahmy's reference probably
took issue with Kissinger's
opening address where he said a
peace agreement should also
acknowledge the fact that
Jerusalem was a place holy to
three great religions.
Asked whether he did not
think the setup in Geneva was
quite different, as the Israelis
had to face a constant majority
in the U.N. security council
compared to the demand for
unanimous decisions in
Geneva, Fahmy replied:
"No, no, here too Israel will
not be able to do what she
pleases. Other members of the
conference will certainly be
able to force her to accept the
common standpoint. If Israel
wants to be right always then
she does not need to come
here." (AP)

THE FUEL CRISIS certainly doesn't hamper long distance travel when you're going
reindeer style. And so that merry old gentleman Santa Claus found his way from the
North Pole to the Princess Margaret Hospital on Friday to give the children a Christmas
party. The party is organised annually by the East Nassau Rotarians for the children of
patients of the Chest Wing of the hospital who would normally not be home to give their
children any Christmas so the East Nassau Rotarians try to help out a bit. Five year old
Garnell Johnson is shown receiving his present from Santa while other children wait their

QUESTIONS TO MR. PINDLING


EDITOR, The Tribune,
I have sent the following
open letter to the Prime
Minister:
The Prime Minister Hon. L.
0. Pindling:
Dear Sir:
Being as you are the Minister
who is responsible for
immigration I would appreciate
if you would make a public
statement to the following
questions.
What is the reason for so
many skilled and quality
immigrants leaving the
Bahamas and what is the
reason why these people's
work permits aren't being
renewed by immigration?
What is the reason for the


police not arresting the illegal
operators of the numbers
houses and the numbers
sellers?
Why are the illegal Haitians
allowed to sell numbers all over
Nassau and why are these
illegal Haitians allowed to work
without any permission from
the immigration?
What is the reason for the
police not arresting women
whc carry on prostitution on
Bay Street during tne nights?
How come immigration
department officers are only
concerned about getting the
white expatriates out of this
country after these people have
made such a great contribution
to the development of this


A POLICEMAN'S PLEA


EDITOR, The Tribune,
This is a policeman's cry to
the Commissioner of Police.
Please Mr. Commissioner
stop this twelve hour shift that
you introduced once a month
because it is killing the now
overworked, underpaid tired
policemen. What inhuman
hours for a policeman to work
when there is no national crisis.
" 'i is it necessary to work a
trtain group in this manner,
while others, including you,
Mr. Commissioner, and all your
officers have all weekends off
to ride around in fancy cars. If
a crisis existed one would
expect to see the leaders on the
job every day and in front
leading the way, but this is not
the case.
The public may want to
know what the policemen gets
for the four extra hours that he


works during the 12 hours
shift. Nothing not one extra
( Not even a day off to
c iis or her clothes or do
'rsonal business. The
t rce needs to be
.my ,.,ted and a lot of the
officers with outdated ideas
and petty minds put on
pension.
I read in the news media
where the force is over 200
under strength. I believe that if
the present trend continues the
amount will be doubled in
1974 or until a lot of these
men's contracts expire.
You will get a lot of sick
reports from a lot of tired
policemen.
Remember, when you are
powerful also be merciful,
because it all amounts to 84
hours, for one week.

About sworn affidavits


Editor The Tribune:
I shall be grateful if you
could give me any clarification
regarding a situation that has
been bothering me recently as
to the trustworthiness of
affidavits made in the
Bahamas.
If I understand it correctly
an affidavit is a sworn
statement in writing sworn to
under oath or affirmation
before an authorized officer.
Am I correct in assuming
that any person making false
statements in an affidavit is
liable to prosecution before the
courts? If this is so what is
going to happen to the persons
who swore on oath that a
certain MP (now resigned) was
born in the Bahamas?
If proper checks were made
the proper authorities would
find thousands such false
affidavits were made in the
Bahamas, especially for


Jamaicians, Haitians, Tur.ks
Islanders and other Nationals
born outside the
Commonwealth of the
Bahamas.
Another matter that is
bothering me. There are
thousands of illegal female
expatriates in .the Bahamas,
New Providence and Grand
Bahama in particular, who are
having children for Public
Service officers, including
Police, Immigration, Customs
and others as well as Bahamian
taxi drivers and businessmen.
If this statement is doubted
a check of the hospitals and
clinics would reveal an
astonishing situation. On the
other hand however, investors
are harassed and asked to leave
this country. Is this a political
situation?

country?
What is the reason for so
many illegal immigrants being
allowed to stay in the Bahamas
and the immigration officers
aren't concerned about getting
these illegal immigrants out of
this country and why are the
illegal immigrants given so
much more privileges than the
legal immigrants?
Why are there so many
Jamaician illegal immigrants
allowed to work in the
Bahamas without any
immigration permission"?
Why are skilled and quality
expatriates permits not being
renewed?
You mentioned in your
speech during your party
convention that there are
10,000 jobs available in the
Bahamas. Please tell me where
are these jobs. Or maybe you
meant to say that there are
10,000 more jobs for Haitians
and Jamaicans because these
people are given more
privileges in this country today
under your government than
our Bahamians.
Are you aware that a
Jamaican could come to the
Bahamas on Sunday and go to
work on Monday without any
permission?


Why are the Haitians
allowed to send money out of
the Bahamas back to Haiti
without an exchange control
regulations?
What is the reason that the
Haitian boats are given the best
places along Woodes Rodgers
Road, while our Bahamian
boats have to tie up alongside
of one another.
Sir, in closing, what
happened to the Square Deal
that you promised Bahamians?

INSURANCE


Editor The Tribune:
Strange as it might seem, the
private automobile is by far the
most popular method of
getting to work each day and
back for a lunch break.
Government took a quick
step in bringing to law a price
control on certain foods
labelling the scheme
Breadbasket, although we have
been paying 25c for cream and
with a price control 31c or
30c. As a result of which price
control does not pay off.
And now, accordingly,
according to a local newspaper
of Oct. 27th I belive another
raise in the car insurance field
might soon come about. A
company stated on Oct. 27
that claims on car thefts were
up 100 to 1000 percent
recently.
The companies are quick to
speak up spreading the news in
order to grab more cash from
poor people. Let us presume
there are quite a few hundred

favour of the company such as

St..AR ABBY: You seem to have all the answers so
ma e you can help me. I want to get into show business. I
know I don't have the talent to be a big star, but I'd be
satisfied with bit parts as long as it's show business. How
do I get started?
I'd gladly be an errand boy, or park cars, or run an
elevator in a television or movie studio.
I'd do anything just to be where the action is. I don't
have any contacts, but I've had this hangup about Holly-
wood ever since I can remember. I'm 18 now, and want to
do something about it.
I live in New Jersey, but I'd be willing to move to
California. STAR STRUCK


DEAR STRUCK: An 18-yeir-old with no talent, n con-
tacts, no experience, and no special training shouldn't head
West without a round-trip ticket and enough bread to keep
him going for six months. But if you decide to go to Holly-
wood, buy yourself a Sunday Los Angeles Times. It has an
enormous want ad section, and it's thick enough to use as a
mattress, if necessary.
DEAR ABBY: I hope you won't think I'm a monster,
but here goes. I am a 24-year-old woman with a 5-year-old
son from my first husband, and a 1-year-old son from
George, to whom I've been happily married for two years.
George legally adopted my older son [Jrwior], but now
he wants me to give the boy back to his real father, who is
also remarried, and who would dearly love to legally adopt
this boy. [So would his new wife.]
My husband says he can't help favoring the younger
boy I his own I and I fully understand, because the older one
is the living image of his real father. Junior has expressed
a desire to live with his real father, and he cries when he
has to come home to us after spending the weekend there.
I confess, I also favor the younger boy, and I honestly
cannot give him the love he needs.
My problem is what will people say about a mother
who gives her own child away? I know he'd be better off
with his natural father, but I'm afraid if I let him go, I'll
feel guilty. Can you help me? TORN IN TEXAS

TO ALL OUR CUSTOMERS AND FRIENDS THROUGHOUT
THE COMMONWEALTH OF THE BAHAMAS


DEAR TORN: Under the circumstances, Junior would
be better off with his natural father, who wants him. You
don't and neither does your present husband. The boy
wants to go. So let him, and don't feel guilty. You'd be
doing the right thing.
DEA11 AHHY: I have a friend who really gets my goat.
Som-,i.t,. when I've been on the phone for a long time she
will call and shout in a very angry tone: "I have been
tl IIL to get you for an hour-who in the devil have you
been yakking with for so long?" And like a fool, I apologet-
ically tell her.
Or if I come home after having been gone all day,
- she'll phone and bark: "I've been trying to reach you all
day -where the heck were you?" Not knowing what else to
say. I tell her.
I don't think I have to account to her about where I've
been or to whom I've been talking. Other than coming right
out and telling her it's none of her business, can you sug-
gest a more subtle way of telling her off?
ANNOYED IN DENVER
DEAR ANNOYED: Say: "If anybody asks you ... just
tell 'em you don't know." She'll get the message.
DEAR ABBY: I read your "Confidential to Feeling
Guilty," who apparently found a lost pet and didn't adver-
tise to find its owner. You said if a person finds a lost pet
and doesn't make every effort to locate its owner, it's as
bad as stealing it, or words to that effect.
Well, I disagree! I love animals, and whenever I'd find
a lost pet, I used to advertise for its owner, but no more!
Pet owners who let their pets roam around might enjoy
having a pet, but they don't really love them.
Why should I spend my good money advertising to find
an owner when nine out of ten times the pet is left to roam
and gets lost again? JENNIE IN COLUMBUS
DEAR JENNIE: If you love animals, you know the
heartbreak felt by one who has lost a pet. To some, it's
almost as traumatic as losing a child. Even the most loved
and cared for pets sometimes get "lost."

Danger warning on Comet


WASHINGTON (AP) -
Government scientists
Saturday warned the public
against using telescopes or
other optical aids in viewing
the Comet Kohoutek this
week.
fhey warned that viewers
could suffer permanent eye
damage by inadvertently
focusing on the Sun. Instead,
they advised looking with the
naked eye.
The potential danger will
exist between Dec 24 and 31


and Space. Administration
(NASA). Kohoutek is slated to
make its turn around the sun
on Dec. 28.
"Thus far," their joint
statement said, "the comet has
not been as brilliant as
expected, and some- observers
have attempted a better view
by means of telescopes,
binoculars, and other optical
aids. For the novice
astronomer, the use of such
aids may prove hazardous if


1 1 1 --- I-.- thev are directed toward the
when the cneiscottohe I


Sun. said scientists of the
National 1-ye Institute tNEIl
and the National Aeronautics


Sun.
"Normally, the naked eye
can not focus in the Sun for
more than a fraction of a


second and automatically
blinks. This natural defense
system protects the eye against
retinal burn from the Sun's
intense rays.
"However, a person using a
telescope or binoculars is
greatly intensifying the effect
of the Sun's rays and,
therefore, even a short period
of exposure to the Sun can
cause permanent damage to the
foca, that part of the retina
responsible for fine or reading
vision.
"Visual harm resulting from
such a burn is immediate and is
usually permanent."

I N|coo PRODUCED
ACTUAL STARMAP PHOTO -'R IN OPERATION WITH
TAKEN FROM AN IMn COMPUTER s THE AMERICAN MUSEUM-
DISPLAY SCREEN HAYDEN PLANETARIUM


The IBM Starmap: This starmap is a guide to the heavens,
showing the brighter stars, the sun and/or moon (when
visible), the planets and the comet Kohoutek, perhaps the
brightest comet to pass by the earth in recorded history. The
map, designed to assist you in locating the various celestial
bodies at a given point in time, was produced by an IBM
computer. The computer was used to store mathematical
equations that describe the movement of celestial bodta.
and from this information to calculate these atarmaps for any
place on the earth, for any day and for any time in the
20th Century


How to u1 O IN ShtalMp: Cut the chart out.
Take it outside and hold it directly over your
head. Make certain that the North compass point
on the chart is facing North. The center of the
chart represents the sky directly overhead, and
the outer perimeter is the horizon. The labeled
representation of the comet Kohoutek is its posi-
tion at the beginning of this week. The second
comet symbol shows Kohoutek's position at the
end of this week.

West leads the WJ.
Had South's hearts been Axx,
he would hold Up automatically.
Here the situation is basically
the same, yet many players
would win the fist trick, hoping
that the second honour would
guard the suit.
That might be so if East could
be kept out.
Since, however, the diamond
finesse must be taken into his
hand, the value of the second
heart honour is Illusory.
By playing low at trick one.
South ensures his contract. Let
West clear his hearts. If East
has three hearts, the suit isn't
dangerous. If he has two hearts
only, he won't have one to return
when he comes In with his OK.

WIl EN BAHAMAS
welterweight king Elisha Obed
disposed of Puerto Rican
middleweight Saulo Hernandez
Son december 14 at the Nassau
Stadium, he climaxed perhaps
+ -? R G-tRhe most spectacular one year
campaign in local boxing
"^ history.
Hernandez represented the
S- sensational youngster's 12th
consecutive triumph of 1973
and tenth knockout victim.
r IH -R C Bahamas boxing historian
"i t'nire: RICHARD RODGIRS Wilfred Coaklev said: "I feel


qualified to state without fear
of contradiction that Obed's
!2th main event success both
home and abroad was a tour de
force of superlative merit, a
standard that will be tough to
equal these days when fighters
want to talk more and fight
less," ('oakley said.
Obed's 12 wins were scored
at the expense of an array of
international riingmen, who
came. saw. but failed to conquer
the boxer now generally
regarded as potentially the
greatest Bahamian fighter of all
time


(oing down to defeat with
varying degrees of emphasis
were six Americans, three
Puerto Ricans, two Jamaicans
and a Canadian. Of the lot only
the two Jamaicans proved
durable enough to last the
route with Obed.
The first to bite the ring
dust was clever Sandy Torres
of Puerto Rico. Torres waged a
fierce battle, extending Obed
for almost eight rounds before
Flisha left him for dead with a
perfect punch in that stanza.
Une month later in
February, Canadian junior
middleweight title holder Terry
Hayward came to town to give
Flisha "a fight for his money."
Unimpressed, Obed sent the
Canadian home early with a
stunning one round knockout.
In March, Al Cook of New
Jersey was halted in five,
setting the stage for Jamaica's
Roy Goss who survived the
distance but was clearly beaten
in their April 23 encounter.
Cliff Johnson of Florida was
the next to go flattened in
three rounds in May,
followed by two more
Americans Jimmy Williams
who was blasted out in a mere
filthy two seconds at Freeport
in June and Doug Rogers
hammered into fourth round
submission in August.
Then came the supposed
"Acid Test" against Bunny
Grant, Jamaican welterweight
and former British
Commonwealth champion.
After a few delays, the bout
finally took place on
September 26 at the Nassau
Stadium and Obed dispelled all
lingering doubts concerning his
fistic prowess. The 21-year-old
Bahamian youngster handed
the fading but cagey veteran a
sound drubbing over ten
scintillating rounds.
Extending his winning streak
to 37, Obed passed his big test
with honours. His sights were
then trained on bigger names in
the boxing world.
Elisha's next three fights
were in Florida, appearing for
the first time outside the
Bahamas. His stateside debut
took place in Boca Raton
where he chilled Jose Melendez
of Puerto Rico in eight fast
sessions.
Next on the agenda was a
prestigious performance at the
Miami Beach Auditorium
against Florida State
middleweight King Dennis
Riggs of Jacksonville. The
November 13 fight saw him

little less than one year of
professional ring experience,
ended an impressive 1973
schedule Saturday when he
stopped lightweight Champ
Gypsy Mike Whymns within
three rounds in a featured
match at the Birdland Arena.
Barr, whose victories this
year included a second round
technical knockout over
Miamian veteran Roscoe Bell
and Joe Hooks, proved to be
too much for Whymns. The
lightweight champ who also
holds the junior welterweight
title hit the canvas three
times in the third round
before referee Ray Minus
stopped the bout.
Whymns, almost at loss on
outside attack tried in vain to
take the fight on the inside.

reach another milestone
becoming the first Bahamian to
fight a main event in his first
showing at Chris Dundee's
cele brated boxing
establishment.
In a bout that was carried
live over radio station WGBS,
great local interest was
generated when Obed gave an
inspired performance, long to
be remembered. Utilizing a
sustained attack that kept his
heavier foe constantly on the
defence, Obed proceeded to
administer a humiliating defeat
over Riggs, scoring four
knockdowns enroute to a


L


sensational fourth round
knockout.
The 1973 chart now reads
12 wins against no losses with
ten triumphs via the short cut
route.
"Ten for 12 is lusty clouting
in any league, as meritorious an
achievements as can be
expected from a fledging
fighter of 21," commented ring
veteran Coakley. "Elisha Obed
and those connected with his
march to fistic glory deserves
great credit for providing a
glorious chapter in Bahamian
sport."
