By NICKI KELLY
PROGRESSIVE Liberal Party
candidate Sinclair Outten has come
out in support of an Integrity. Bill
which would require parliamentarians
to disclose their sources of income.
Mr. Outten one of the seven
candidates in the St. Barnabas
by-election, made his observation
during his election broadcast on ZNS
last night.
"There has been much ado about
the alleged corruption ot
parliamentary members but no specific
charges have been laid." he declared.
The Progressive Liberal Party
government was mindful of the


charges however, -and in line with the
Throne Speech on the control oI
gambling, bribery and corrupt
practices, Mr. Outten said he advocated
an Integrity Bill for parliamentarians-
"This Bill should cover civil servants
as well. and should also include
provisions to investigate allegations
that could bring parliamentarians into
disrepute," Mr. Outten declared.
He said the Bill should he so,
designed as to inflict punishment oin
those persons spreading false rumoitur
concerning members of Parliament
Beyond mention of the integrity
Bill. Mr. Outten made no promises ,ind
appeared content to rest on wiat heli


t'l! w5ere the accomplishments of the
P'l P ovci the past seven c cars.
considc rabe part of the broadcast
was devoted to criticism of hi's i\

A SFA search for four men
aboard the Io -foot Alice

Sunday continued today with
the AUTEC missile base also
assisting in the hunt which is
being carried out by the
Bahamas Air Sea Rescue
Association.
B A.S.R A. authorities
started to look for the Alice

reported overdue on a fishing
trip. Only two men were
believed to be aboard at the
time.

THE TRIBUNE asked for

speak.
Yesterday this newspaper
launched a new platform for
its readers to "sound off" on
anything that was worrying
them or which they felt
should be brought before the
public so that something
could be done about it.
A "Merchant" wrote in
giving a reason why the
Bahamas' cost of living was
so high. He claimed that
British goods, which should
be getting cheaper for the
Bahamian co.llumer, were in
fact getting more expensive
because customs had fixed
the British pound at the rate
of $2.50 for customs duty
payments, when in fact the
pound was currently at about
$2.25.

consumer has written to

1)1 AR SIR,
I write with response to
the front page article of 14th
January, 1974 which
attempted to explain why the
cost of living is so high.
I'm afraid that the
m e r c h a n t w h o
wrote the article obviously is
not a mathematician, which.
in some cases may be the
cause of such high living costs
in this country today.

Fawkes broadcast differs from Tribune copy


C LEP St Barnabas
by-election candidate Randol
F Fawkes, in an apparent
attempt to have 'The Fribune
publish statements he knew
Radio Bahamas would refuse
to broadcast, yesterday
supplied this paper with a
speech hearing little
resemblance to that actually
broadcast last night.
Mr. Fawkes, like the other
candidates in the Friday


l y-election, was given I15
minutes radio time to air his
views last night.
I ast week Mr. Fawkes was
asked to submit an advance
copy to The Tribune,
Late Monday morning the
CLP leader brought in a copy
of a speech that he said was the
one he would be taping for
broadcast last night.
At a glance the speech he
gave The Tribune appeared to


be of a nature which. in view
of allegations of speech editing
made against Radio Bahamas
during the 1972 general
election campaign, vould never
be broadcast.
But Mr. Fawkes assured The
Tribune that it was his speech
and it was the one he intended
to have broadcast.
On closer examination the
speech appeared to contain a
number of statements 'hat


m igiht have been
considered libellous.
The Tribune would not have
published those statements in
any event.
But the need it) edit it
disappeared when it was noted
that Mr. Fawkes' radio speech
was totally different u-,e that
which he submitted to The
Tribune.
The Tribune subsequently
obtained a true transcript of
Mr. Fawkes' radio speech.

that they influence small

Torture killings: pretrialopens


HOUSTON The mother of a
teenager accused in the Houston mass
murders was the first witness in a pretrial
hearing as the defense began criticism of
police handling of the case.
Attorneys say actions of the police are
crucial to the defense of Elmer Wayne
Henley, 17, who is charged in connection
with six of 27 slaying.
Henley is one of two youths charged in
what police have called a 2'/2-year orgy of
homosexual torture and murders of
young men.
Defense lawyers say they will present
17 witnesses to support claims that police
denied Henley a chance to consult them
before he made two incriminating
statements to police.

The good old days?


By ETIIFNL DUPUCHI
I WILL BREAK AWAY from my travel series today to deal
with the question of gambling and alcoholism in the Bahamas.
I don't think that anyone can deny the fact that gambling is an
evii thing.
it is a pursuit in which the gambler tries to get something for
himself without working for it, thus defying the rule laid down
for man by God in the Garden of Eden when Hie told Adam that
henceforth man shall earn his bread by "the sweat of his brow."
In a small way a game of chance involving small sums of money
can be a form of social diversion but, like drinking liquor, the
social drinker too often develops into an alcoholic.
Gambling is something to be avoided, even as a social pastime.
I was fortunate. I got bitten by it once in the army. I learnt a
lesson and had the good sense to quit. That was 58 years ago.
The worst possible thing that could happen to a young man is
to win on his first try. This experience "sweetens" him and,
although he may lose his shirt after that. he gets deeper and
deeper into the game because he feels that. on the law of
averages, his luck will return one day. It never does. It is an
established fact that the gambler never wins.
As a result organized gambling produces undesirable characters.
These arc divided in two parts, suckers and parasites.
Because of this fact, it is often arranged by professional
gamblers for a beginner to have a streak of winnings because,
without "suckers" who are "caught". the men who organize
-.uribli]r,. could not prosper.

Liquor and gambling are twin evils. They are both today eating
into the very soul of the Bahamian people.
Statistics show that a large p;..r:nri.]c of cases in the medical
hospital, the mental hospital, and the prison are the result of
alcoholic indulgence.
There is a good deal of talk about controlling this evil ... but
how?
It was shown during the great depression in the U.S., when the
Bahamas was flourishing in the "bootleg industry", that, although
millions of people in the nation went hungry, there was always
plenty of money to pay for bootleg liquor.

Nassau didn't have a liquor problem until recent years.
Fire number of bar rooms was limited and they were required
to close at 9 p.m. There was nowhere else for the average working
man to obtain liquor, except from a few spots called "Thirty
Days," where a man might buy an illicit drink around a dark
Corner.
But the police kept watch on these activities and so
they were kept under control. In any event. very few people
wanted liquor so badly that they went to this extent to get it.
If a man wanted a drink after the bar rooms closed, he bought
a bottle of rum and took it home.

Alcoholism in the Bahamas has grown from a twin
development. First of all. prosperity; and then the Proprietary
Club.
The introduction of the Proprietary Club made liquor available


requiring them to close down operations during the regular time
for church services on Sunday morning. This was a farce.
And prosperity. The people had money. Liquor was available
in attractive spots all over the island. And so young people stayed
out nights ... and lost the habit of going homiie.

An extraordinary thing happened on one occasion. A liquor
shop in Fox Hill was made most attractive.
The owner of the shop took a group ot his socially promiinent
men and women from the city to this place to "show
the common people how to drink like ladies and gentlemen,"
whatever that might mean. This incident will give you an idea of
the absurd opinion these people held of themselves.
Now the commonn people" know how to drink ... and liquor
ranks among the major evils in the country today.
Talking about prosperity ... I recall that during the war ... when
5000 Bahamian labourers were recruited for work in the U.S ...
a percentage of their earnings was sent to their wives in the
islands.
Up to that time there was veiry little money ini circulation in
the Out Islands. The little that was there was controlled mostly


by the men. Now women were having easy money coming to
them regularly ... and reports reaching me from the Out Islands
said that for the first time women were frequenting the liquor
shops in the Out Islands, I do know that during this period the
number of liquor shops in the Out Islands greatly multiplied.
I could tell you what liquor did to the people of Mayaguana
after they got their first liquor shop. But I'll skip this one.

In addition to the evils of gambling and indulgence in alcohol
the traffic in drugs is now becoming a major problem in the
Baihamnas.
To give you some idea of how much the whole character of the
Bahamian people has changed during my life time ... when I
came home from the first world war, both liquor and tobacco
were frowned on by the social group in which I moved.
The few men who drank in our group hid a bottle under a tree
in the backyard at a dance and they stole out occasionally to get
a "nip". They then concealed the smell on their breath by eating
peppermint candy.
None of the women I knew either drank or smoked.
In my case ... I was in the army for nearly half my three years
overseas service before I tasted my first drop of liquor,or smoked
my first cigarette, or indulged in a game of chance. Thank God, I
never got hooked on any of them. I saw what they did to other
people and decided that I wouldn't be one of the victims.
At a party today with the same people I knew as a young man
most of them drink and smoke. And, as for their children, it is
almost impossible to get near the bar because they are always
there first ... and most of them have become walking chimneys.
This often leads to the drug habit.
Gambling ... liquor ... and drugs are the three great destroyers


FD)ITOR, The Tribune.
Your January 11I edition
carried an "open letter" to the
manager of Bahamasair by Mr.
Errol Symonette. In his
eloquent criticism of this latest
pestilence to afflict the
Bahamas, Mr. Symonette
states: "Every resort manager I
know of who has any contact
with Bahamasair is telling the
same, sorry tale."
I would go farther,l suggest
that every person who has had
the misfortune ever to travel
on this apology for an airline
has a tale to tell assuming, of
course, that their plane
actually appeared and, having
appeared, actually flew.
While I sympathise with the


tourists who iraocentl try to1
travel to and from the Bahamas
on this aerial disgrace. I tecl
even more deeply for the
unfortunates who. like me.
have to travel within the
Bahamas on business trips and
who therefore have no choice
but to fly Bahamasair. At least
the tourist, when hie returns
home, has the satisfaction to
being able to curse his travel
agent for booking him on
Baliamasair instead of on ao
proper airline.
We. on the other hand. can
only trudge patiently aiong to
the airport and specs o 1n
what surprise the -.
Bahamasair have in ,i i ;s
today.


WHOSE 'WIFE' IS

SINCLAIR OUTTEN?


EDITOR, The Tribune.
Having just listened to Prime
Minister Pindling being
interviewed by Mary Kelly on
ZNS, I see that he still retains
the ability to answer awkward
questions without really saying
anything.
When asked how many of
the 1500 applications for
Bahamian citizenship had been
granted. LOP replied: 'Oh
we've done some of the easy
ones ah um, wives, ah um
but we haven't got down to the
registration and the
naturalisation cases as such ye
because we would want to run.
um, quite a lot of checks on a
number of people and we
would wish to settle the basic
criteria really before we start,
so that everyone would know
what the ground rules were,
and then we, um, and then we
proceed."
All of which tells us exactly
nothing. When Mr. Pindling
will not give a straight answer
to a perfectly simple question.
one wonders immediately what
he is trying to hide.
Is the truth of the matter
not simply that citizenship has
been granted only to Beryl
Hanna. Zoe Maynard and
Sinclair Outten? Why should
these applications be so much
"easier" than the others that
these people were granted
citizenship months ago whereas
not ONE of all the other
applications all 1500 of
them is known to have been
approved? Whose "wife" is
Sinclair Outten?
Clearly, the rules which
govern ordinary mortals do not


apply to the PLP hierarchy.
What a flagrant abuse ,of
political ., ,. f '
Mr. Pindling can ,. iirl all
day talking propaganda to the
Miami Herald or over /\, but
if he thinks that intelligent

does not have the intelligence I
give him credit for.
If he wants to '-., ,, the
credibility he enjoyed man\
years ago. he would do well to
set his own house in order first,
Here are a few suggestions to
get him started:
(1) Do some straight talking
on the question of citizenship
and tell the Minister
responsible to stop his delaying
tactics and to get sone
applications approved. 1his
should at least lessen the stink
caused by the present
situation.
(2) Give us some facts uto
support his assertion that the
Immigration and Work Permit
situation has been put on a
sensible basis.
(3) Fire Loftus Roker and
appoint a Minister of Health
who is at least capable of
ensuring that our hospital is
competently staffed and
operated.
(4) Appoint a Minister oft
Education who is capable of
ensuring that our schools have
sufficient qualified teachers.
In short, let's have more
action and less sweet talk.

of human character ... and they are in full stride in the Bahamas
today where indulgence in these habits has become a part of the
social pattern.

The January issue of Readers Digest carries an article on
Sparta, the ancient Greek city whose story has lived down
through the centuries as the highest example of human strength
and courage.
"The heroic city of Sparta has left behind no gilded palaces or
elegant temples," the story states. "Her legacy is to be found inl
an ideal, and if we try to sum up what made her immortal, the
word is'CHARACTER'."

Destroy the character of your people ... and you have no
nation.
The character of the Bahamian people is being underlined
because a long period of prosperity has led them down the path
to indulgence in destructive habits.
1 remember the night Mr. Percy Christie, who represented the
Western District in the House of Assembly, succeeded, after years
of effort, in getting a Bill through the House setting the minimum
labour wage at four shillings a day.
This sounds like an absurd figure today ... and it is. But this
was big money during a period when men were often paid as little
as a shilling a day. And skilled workmen were well paid at twenty
shillings a week.
I was sitting near a liquor merchant in the House.
"That's money for me," the liquor man looked across to me
and remarked.
He was right ... this new windfall for labour meant a great
boost in the liquor trade.

How can this trend in the nation be checked?
I don't know. All I'm doing in this article is reporting the facts.
I have no solutions to offer because almost the entire economy of
the islands today is based on activities that foster destructive
indulgencies of every kind.
(To be continued)


FOOTNOTE TO HISTORY: At a public meeting last week Mr.
Sinclair Outten, P.L.P. candidate for the St. Barnabas
constituency, declared that the Legislature should pass a Bill of
Integrity requiring members of the House and Senate to publicly
state whether they had been involved in any sort of corruption.
He said that after making this declaration they would be above
reproach.
Has he forgotten the Prime Minister's celebrated Code of
Ethics?
This suggestion is really the joke of the century.
I have nothing against Mr. Outten. If the constituency want
him that's their business. I proved that I had nothing against Mr.
Outten when I stated in this column that he should not be
persecuted after he had revealed that he was not born in the
Bahamas.
But I must really laugh when he tries to put such an incredible
idea across on the people of St. Barnabas. He must really think
they are a bunch of gullible fools.

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY
The darkest day in any man's life is when he sits down to plan
how to get money without earning it. HORACE GREELEY

Apart from picture-taking,
singing happened to be another
of Stan's hobbies causing him
to join voices with Paul Frye
and the other members of
"The Epilogue" quartette.
He remembers the war years,
coming here first in early
March 1945 with several
hundred other enlisted officers
from Canada.
As a part of R.A.F.
navigational training
programme, they had to leave
Canada for a country which
afforded area necessary for
training with the coastal
command.
The Bahamas was ideal, it
had lots of water.
His training with the R.A.F.
brought him to the Bahamas to
receive instruction for the
Coastal Command. The


Bahamas had been chosen for
the exercises because of its
geography lots of water.
His three month stay here,
at Oakes and Windsor fields
struck him then as beini 'lust
out of this world \with the
warm weather and luscious
foliage in the Bahamas."
He also remembers that the
temperature here was a "great
deal different" from what he
had left behind in Canada,
20-degrees below zero
compared with 80 to 90
degrees here.
But, the mosquitoes in the
Bahamas were huge, he said.
adding that he hasn't seen any
since he arrived.
Among some of the things
that fascinated Stan were the
number of new hotels in
Nassau and the Paradise Island

gets top


athlete


award


NEW YORK Billie Jean
King, who beat Bobby Riggs
in her continuing crusade to
upgrade the image of women
in sports, was named female
athlete of the year by the
Associated Press today.
Mrs. King, as she prefers to
be addressed, was the
overwhelming choice in the
voting of AP member sports
writer and broadcasters
She received 4,7 votes.
compared with 146 for Olga
Korbut, the Russian gymnast
who received the honour last
year for her Olympic
performance.
Kathy Whitworth, who was
athlete of the year in 1965
and 1966, was a distant third
with 34 votes, followed by
Margaret Court of Australia,
winner of the French,
Australian and United States
open tennis championships.
with 20: swimmer Keene
Rothhammer. 11; track star
Mary Decker, 9, and tennis
pro Chris Evert, 7.
The award is accompanied
by the Babe Didrikson
Zaharias trophy, presented
annually by George Zaharias
in memory of his wife, the
late golfing great who was AP
athlete of the year six times.
Billie Jean, who also was
named AP athlete of the year
in 1967, was overshadowed
by Mrs. Court on the pro
tennis tournament trail.
The only major
international title to come
her way was Wimbledon.
which she won for the fifth
time in her career.
But her straight-set
triumph over the 55-year-old
Riggs left little doubt of her
ability to play tinder pressure.
"Winning Wimbledon was
the most rewarding for me
personally," said Ms. King,
the topranked woman in the
United States, "but beating
Riggs did more for the cause
of getting recognition for
women.
"From a professional
standpoint, I had one of the
worst years ever. I only won
eight or nine tournaments
compared with 20 in 1972.
"The AP athlete of the
year is strictly a popularity
contest. I should have won it
in 1971, the year Evonne
Goolagong won it. I played
the best tennis of my career
that year. I knew I wouldn't
win it in 1972 because it was
an olympic year." (AP)


BY GLADSTONE THURSTON
THIE SENSATIONAL
Classic Pros will be without
six-foot-five forward Elisha
McSweeney for at least the
following game.
Having scored 14 points and
captured 20 rebounds in last
night's Classic Pros 78-57
victory over John Bull,
McSweeney with 4:42
remaining in the game was sent
off due to unsportsmanlike
conduct.
Seconds earlier, the rookie
forward apparently thought he
was given the tail end of a
scrimmage and decided to vent
his frustrations on John Bull's
rookie guard Leroy Fawkes.
"'Number 55 you're out the
gamee" signalled referee Vince
Ferguson.
IHe meant that McSweeney
will have to sit out the
following Classic Pros game
which happens to be a second
place showdown with Paradise
League favourites Strachan's
Auto next week Wednesday.
Strachan's player coach
Jerome Barney who observed
from the bleachers was riot as
impressed as the fans who
clapped, cheered and even
booed McSweenes off the
court.
"I hat does not iiieain
anything." said Barney. lie
respects the Pros. "One man
does not make a team. Tlhe
still have plenty team left."
liHe was referring to abuse
all the outstanding per-
tormances of centreforwards
Allan Ingraham and (;ary
Snitmonette who along with
McSweeney carried the weight
ot the Pros, victor,
victory.
Ingrahami captured 13
rebounds and Symon itette
scored a game hig!h of 18
points.
"Never underrate a good
tcait." noted Barney. "That
was my fault last time. I
u underrated the Colonels
without Quant."
Merrill Johnson topped John
Bull with 14 points and 10
rebounds. Fawkes scored 13
and gave I 0 assists.
Scoring 21 of 52 field goal
attempts, the Pros btehiund the
I 2-point performance of,
(;olson Bain contained John
Bull for a 44-33 half time lead.
Allan captured 12 rebounds
while Pat and McSweenev
added eight each.
Johnson topped the Bulls in
that period going six for 12
from the field, as the team
scored 15 of 36 from the field

"What we achieved was that
we got a new constitution and
more people interested in
golf." said Hliggs. "Since the
reorganization in 1968, I think
golf has improved much and a
survey of all golfers in the
Bahamas will prove this."
It was Higg's understanding
that the BA (;.C was formed
to emphasize the social aspect
of golf and to work with the
high handicapper which it
did to an extent.
However, it started
controversy in a sport that up
to that time was free of
misunderstanding "I
personally didn't think it was
necessary for a splinter
organization to be formed "
"If there were one or two
people in the B.(;,A. who felt
that things were wrong, I feel
that they should have it
changed within the
organization instead of
fragmenting it." said lliggs.
"Such things only hurt the
sport itself."
Higgs confirmed that it was
the intention of the B (;.A. to
have on its executive

active clubs in the Bahamas
Nominations going into

scored 10 and Fawkes gave
nine assists.
Donnie Barr and Dudley
Moxey came into the attack
for the Bulls late in the second
half when they closed the gap
by three points with ten
minutes remaining. However,
plagued by many clutch
turnovers, John Bull could do
little to stop the Pros who
expanded 68-53 enroute to
their twelfth victory in fifteen
played.
Concerning McSweeney's
detention, "we just have to fill
in the spot with Allan
Ingraham," said Pros
player/coach Cleve Rodgers.
"Allan played a beautiful game
tonight."
